As for secondary characters, Detective Paulie Bridges' badassery is so renown it's said that Arnold Schwarzenegger should play him in a movie of his life. It's telling that outside of Jody, he's the only human in the series who gets the best of Jesse in a fight.

**Before the world trembled at the thunder of his guns, the man who would become The Saint of Killers was already the most bloodthirsty soldier in the Confederate army, before becoming the most feared bounty killer in the West.
**Jody, Jesse's sadistic mentor/twisted father figure is considered borderline superhuman due to his amazingly brutal deeds.

* CoversAlwaysLie: If you're new to the series, the cover of the very first issue might give you the impression that Jesse is the antagonist of the series, or possibly a VillainProtagonist, rather than TheHero. Hell, the first issue's cover is the page image for SinisterMinister!

** A lot of covers show Cassidy drinking blood. While he does drink blood most of the time he prefers alcohol.

* DiabolusExNihilo: Vampires are the setting's only supernatural entity besides demons and angels, but they have no noted connection to Heaven or Hell and we're never told what they are or where they come, leaving us to just assume that God one day decided to make them on a whim (similar to Genesis) for some reason (the fact that they're the only things resistant to the Angel of Death's weapons only makes things weirder).

* DirtyCommunists: Subverted. They're not longer Communists, but the Russians are still depicted as hard, crazy bastards anyway. Not to mention Jesse's father's famous "Fuck Communism" lighter.

* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Ms. Oatlash develops such an obsession for Jesse that she knocks him unconscious, ties him to a bed, and is prepared to sexually assault him before he escapes. The drama of this is somewhat undercut by the fact that [[AdolfHilarious she's dressed Jesse like Hitler, she appears in the bedroom in Nazi-themed lingerie and a helmet, and that she demands, among other things, that he call her Eva.]]

* RedemptionFailure: Since he's something of an {{Expy}} of Creator/ClintEastwood's characters, Saint of Killers' gets a backstory about his life as a retired outlaw and gunslinger. Things rapidly go awry in fashion very similar to what befalls Eastwood's character in ''Unforgiven''.
