Added DiffLines:

* ShootingLessonsFromYourParents: Tulip was taught to shoot by her father. This was part of her father, without actually challenging her biological gender, bringing her up to have stereotypically masculine talents because he'd have preferred to have a son.

Added DiffLines:

* VampiresSleepInCoffins: Averted: Cassidy has never slept in a coffin, as vampires here have no connection to religion (they burn in sunlight and need to drink blood, but animal blood is fine). He later runs into a fellow vampire who invokes as many of the ClassicalMovieVampire traits as he can despite none of them being actually necessary (and them of them aren't possible, like turning into a bat).

Added DiffLines:

** Jody also seems genuinely fond of T.C., in spite of the former's... quirks. He immediately steps in when someone threatens or hurts T.C., and seemed distressed (if only momentarily), when Jesse announced that he'd beaten T.C.'s brains out.

** Invoked when Jesse is asked why he doesn't use The Word on Tulip to get some sex; Jesse replies that forcing Tulip to commit a carnal act against her will would be a sin that he would rightfully burn in hell for.

* TheGrotesque: Arseface and Lorry. Noteworthy in that they are some of the only legitimately morally centered characters and get the most overtly happy ending, in contrast with the rest of the cast, who are all pretty much jerkasses and sick fucks (even our heroes). In Preacher, [[AnAesop everyone is a grotesque freak, except the guy with an arse for a face and the one-eyed girl]].

** Eunuch mafioso hitman Frankie Toscani gives Cassidy ample opportunity to prove the effectiveness of his healing power; under the orders of Herr Starr, Toscani, over the course of several days, uses a high powered sniper rifle to shoot away at various parts of Cassidy's anatomy. After destroying Cassidy's penis(!) with a well-placed shot, Toscani asks: "Think THAT'LL grow back, friend?" To which Cassidy understandably replies: "Jaysis, I sure hope so." Thankfully, it does.

* CoolShades: Cassidy

* CoolShades: CassidyCassidy [[spoiler: Said "coolness" factor perhaps undermined by the fact that when Cassidy's eyes are revealed in a fight, Jesse says they look like he's been jerking off for a hundred years?]]



* DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale: Any male rape in the series is invariably played for comedy. Starr is raped by the Sexual Investigators in "Hunters".
