* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: The two lieutenants were acting under duress (the Colonel had just murdered their Commanding Officer and was still armed) and had otherwise seemed to act as kindly to the Veterans as their ranks and positions allowed them. Todd throws them on to the wasteland to be nuked without a second thought.
** Possibly Justified in that neither of them presented much of an objection to using the genetically-modified soldiers to wipe out what were originally identified as unarmed civilians.

* AlternateHistory: Todd is born in 1996. By then, mankind is already capable of space travel and the world (or at least the US) is a dystopian society that selects babies from birth to become inhuman killing machines.

* DirtyCoward: [[BigBad Col. Mekum]]. He's an arrogant bastard that orders his genetically enhanced troops to murder civilians as a training exercise. When Todd wipes the floor with them, he decides to NukeEmAll. When he's finally confronted by Todd and in a position of danger, he [[AintTooProudToBeg pathetically begs for his life]] and [[BringMyBrownPants loses control of his bladder]]. Very un-soldier like, indeed.

* GoodScarsEvilScars: Todd has a long scar on the right side on his face that arguably makes him look even more badass. Caine's facial scars, inflicted by Todd during their first fight, completely disfigure his face.

* ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer: The basis of the UntrustingCommunity's perspective is based largely on Todd's background as a soldier, and that his violent tendencies are such that he cannot be integrated as a member.
** By teaching the mute, otherwise-coddled child Nathan necessary violence, the boy is later able to save his parents' lives.
** Todd's violence allows him to defend the community from the invading next-gen soldiers bent on eradicating them, and subsequently [[spoiler: lead them to the Promised Land]].

** After surviving the spray of a soldier's minigun, Todd emerges welding an RPG to retaliate. Rather than taking aim at his assailant, he shoots the wreckage above him, resulting in an improbable impalement.
