* DeadlyEnvironmentPrison: After Loveless captures Jim and Gordon, he places them in a small unguarded entrapment in the middle of nowhere that they can leave whenever they want, but doing so will activate his device to send a DeadlyDisc after their magnetic collars. Jim being Jim, he triggers it without even thinking.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy
** When Artemus is about to be shot, he's fortunately wearing body armor and demands that he be shot "...in the heart that loves this country so much." Loveless's response? "Shoot him in the head."
** When Loveless tries to kidnap President Grant, Gordon shows up disguised as the president so Loveless will let the real one go and take him instead. [[TakeAThirdOption Instead he takes both men.]]



* NobodyHereButUsStatues: Loveless' {{mooks}} hiding in the paintings. After Miss East gives it away by looking at one, West quickly kills that mook, [[GenreSavvy and then shoots every other picture]].

* EvilCounterpart: Loveless to Gordon, each of them being a GadgeteerGenius who invents a dizzying variety of different machines, vehicles, weapons and other contraptions decades ahead of their time. Arguably, West to McGrath, each being the less scientific and more pragmatic combat veteran half of their duo.

** Played straight with General McGrath and his Confederate veterans early in the movie.
** Then averted with his boss, Arliss Loveless, much to McGrath's chagrin. He doesn't care about the cause and joyfully guns down both McGrath and his men as a weapons demonstration for the foreign supporters with whom he intends to divide up the United States. Note that while he intends to claim a sizable piece of territory for himself, that territory isn't even in the South.

* TheAlliance: rare villainous example in the "Loveless Alliance," namely Loveless and his people plus Mexico, Spain, France and Great Britain, all planning to divide the United States amongst themselves.



* BerserkButton: don't mention to Jim West that you helped murder his parents, and don't call Doctor Loveless an animal.



* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Loveless seems genuinely shocked and horrified when his weapons master Munitia is sent plummeting to her death. Granted, he gets over it pretty quickly and by the next scene is offering a job to the people who killed her, but still...



* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: General "Bloodbath" McGrath, the Butcher of New Liberty, and his boss, Doctor Arliss Loveless.

Added DiffLines:

* SouthernFriedGenius: Arliss Loveless. Confederate backstory, loud and proud Southern accent and mannerisms. Also invents the battle tank fifty years before World War One, plus the flying frisbees of death, and a steam-powered mechanical tarantula the size of an AT-AT.
