Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: The fighting style of one of Loveless' minions, who demonstrates an impressive knowledge of kung fu. Compare and contrast Jim West's BoringButPractical response of knocking him out with a shovel to the face.

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

* ChewingTheScenery: West has a few moments. Loveless, however, surpasses him by several orders of magnitude.



* 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.



* MadeOfExplodium: What the ''hell'' was in those flying frisbees of death, anyway?

* 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.



* TheRemnant: The ex-Confederates Jim fights at the start of the movie.

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.

Added DiffLines:

* CueTheFallingObject: After Jim West manages to dodge an assassin (which was concealing himself as a "living artwork" in the office of Loveless, and kills Miss West at the same time), he pulls out his gun and shoots every piece of artwork in the room that is man-sized. After he does so and walks away, we find out that said artwork included an assassin on the roof when he crashes down onto Loveless' desk.

Added DiffLines:

* WithDueRespect: When President Grant tells West and Gordon that they're going to be working together, they both start to protest while using the phrase "With all due respect". Grant tells them that they will do whatever their Commander-in-Chief orders them to do, and they both back down.

* IdiotBall: When West and Gordon are being chased by the saw blades, they run into the easily-cut corn field, as opposed to taking refuge by the large metal train that would surely stop the blades.

Added DiffLines:

* ObviouslyEvil: Downplayed with [=McGrath=]; he's ugly, dirty, rude, a bigot, and a nasty person overall, and he's clearly evil; but he's a ''lesser'' evil compared to Loveless.
