* ExtremeDoormat: The sheriff. At the beginning of the movie, he's helping direct the evacuation of the town, which is totally normal for law enforcement. Then we find out he lost the election and once the emergency is over, he's out of a job. The mayor even [[LampshadeHanging calls him out]] on it, wondering why he's sticking around to help after what happened. One of his deputies suggests getting revenge on the mayor and blaming it on looters; the Sheriff declines and continues to help with the evacuation, then continues to stay and do his job long after almost everyone is gone.
