* MightyWhitey: Inverted. When Colton joins the Native Americans, rather than trying to teach them his traditions, they teach him theirs. He even wields a bow and goes shirtless for a level. [[spoiler:Colton is later revealed to have MixedAncestry, see below]]

* AffablyEvil: Despite looking like Rob Zombie's great grandfather returned from the dead and being a little AxeCrazy, Sergeant Hollister is a pretty accommodating host when he captures Colton and Soapy, offering them drinks and even some captured Indian women. Granted, [[FauxAffablyEvil he's doing this while he tries to figure out whether or not to KILL them and gut their corpses]]. But still, can't say he's not a gracious host.
