** Jesse and Cassidy both share an immediate interest in whether or not someone prefers Stan and Laurel or other silent movies [[note]]Was it Buster Keaton? Either him or Charlie Chaplin[[/note]]. Which is a very specific like or dislike to have in an era where silent movies were barely relevant anymore.

* ProstheticLimbReveal: When facing off against his former employer, his dog and his bodyguard, Starr holds his leg out in front of him. The bodyguard contemptuously grabs it, and is surprised long enough that it comes off that Starr is able to dispatch him. Unfortunately for Starr, the dog is still able to get him.
--> Starr: My cock is in the bitch's mouth. And not in a good way.

* WarIsHell / [[ArmiesAreEvil Hate The War, Love The Soldier]]: Billy Baker, AKA "Space", a [[TheVietnamWar Vietnam Veteran]] who owes Jesse's father his life. He shows up in "Texas and the Spaceman" and "The Land of Bad Things" - both times he waxes poetic on the horrors of war and the humanity of solders. His closing words as he stands before the [[http://1tour.vn]] simultaneously make you want to donate a million bucks to the [[BandOfBrothers VA]] and spit on every [[WeHaveReserves armchair general]] in existence.

* TheLastDJ: Colonel Holden provides the page quote, and Jesse qualifies too, considering how much easier his own life would be if he sold out his integrity.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: God created and then alienated beings more powerful than himself. Satan, too, as he had a hand in making the saint of killers.
* {{Homage}}: The character and backstory of the Saint of Killers are an homage to the characters of William Munny in ''Film/{{Unforgiven}}'' and the unnamed gunfighter in ''High Plains Drifter''.

* HappilyFailedSuicide: Arseface tried to kill himself because he was sad and lonely, and his idol and his only friend had both just killed themselves. After the failed suicide attempt, he does all he can to turn his life around, but can never get away from his face being horribly disfigured by the shotgun blast that so fortunately missed his brain. This may be inspired by the real-life botched shotgun suicide of James Vance after hearing a subliminal message in a Judas Priest song.
