* 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''.

Added DiffLines:

*** The Saint of Killers's weapons are instantly fatal. It's possible that Cassidy was only mildly inconvenienced [[FridgeBrilliance because he's already dead]].
