%%* IOwnThisTown: Wesley.

%%* * IOwnThisTown: Wesley.Wesley likes to remind the local business owners of that fact, punctuating the line with a smug "And don't you forget it." See directly below for the payoff.



%%* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Tinker. The only thing the poor guy ever manages to do is show up, fail at whatever he came to accomplish, and get the crap knocked out of him repeatedly by Dalton. He's ultimately defeated by a stuffed polar bear, and given the consolation prize of being the only goon to survive the movie.

* ForTheEvulz: Brad Wesley's actions all seem to be justified--if at all--by, "Because I can."
** Originally his motive is keeping all the businessmen cowed and paying into his town-wide protection racket; he can't afford to let any of them start bucking him by doing things like firing his nephew. He loses it and makes it personal after watching the woman he was obsessed with having sex with Dalton on the barn roof across the lake one night.

Dalton (Swayze) is a professional "cooler" (read: {{Bouncer}}) with a [[DarkAndTroubledPast mysterious past]] who is hired to work for the Double Deuce in [[DeepSouth Jasper, Missouri]]. In the course of cleaning up the seedy roadside bar, he runs afoul of crime kingpin Brad Wesley (Ben Gazzara) who is extorting from the townspeople.
