* AlwaysChaoticEvil: When the three gunmen see the "Welcome Party," they proceed to smash up the table and destroy all the food instead of simply stealing and eating it. When they corner most of the townspeople in the saloon, the leader goes the extra mile by only having one swig of a bottle of whiskey before smashing the bottle and demanding another.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Particularly bad is the scene where Callie ambushes the Stranger while he's taking a bath, unarmed, and fires several shots at him. She's standing less than 8 feet away from him, but he simply ducks under the water and comes out completely unscathed. Of course, another possibility is that the Stranger is [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane a supernatural being]].
