** In "Nomad is an Island", Queen Singlish character design looked every bit the stereotypical BDSM dominatrix.

** In "Nomad is an Island", Queen Singlish character design looked looks every bit the stereotypical BDSM dominatrix.



** Somewhat in "Nomad is an Island" despite the fact that Queen Singlish's "only two subjects" didn't really seem to respect her much to begin with, their [[IKissYourFoot superficial token groveling]] notwithstanding. Also, they seemed well aware of the fact that she needed them more than they needed her. [[WhosLaughingNow It hardly come as any shock]] that at the end of the episode after her defeat, there's a slight [[TheCoup change in how things are done]] aboard the island.

** Also why Hawgtie votes to convict in "Tex But No Hex". Bravestarr convinces him that he's being used, just like he always is.

Added DiffLines:

* AlmightyJanitor: Handlebars the bartender is a tough guy who can stand up to most of Hex's gang; justified as he used to be one of a crew of SpacePirates.


Added DiffLines:

* GoldFever: A whole episode involves how greed for carium makes prospectors act like a bunch of jerks.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: In "Bravestarr and the Law", Tex Hex's claim is fairly adjudicated in court, and this is as it should be. This said, he is a wanted criminal. Not an alleged one. He is minimally a person of interest in dozens of cases - one known to the judge since she was a kid - to be detained on much firmer ground than many people in real life are for much less. Even if his claim had been legit and judged in his favor, he should have been hearing about this victory while indictments flowed like prospectors to a kerium strike.

** Judge [=MacBride=] often rides out with Bravestarr. Judges aren't supposed to take part in the policework so they can remain impartial during the trial.

** Judge [=MacBride=] often rides out with Bravestarr. Judges aren't supposed to take part in the policework so they can remain impartial during the trial. For the same reason, Bravestarr acting as prosecutor would be a conflict of interests.



* BrokenAesop: The episode "Bravestarr and the Law", in which the AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle segment has Bravestarr talking about how one should always obey the law even if you don't agree with it. However, in the episode (in which Shaman is about to be evicted), he's ready and willing to quit his job as a lawman, but stops short of (and anguishes over) actually ''breaking'' the law up until the true facts are revealed and Shaman's home is no longer endangered. On top of this, the intended message is brought across in a confusing way. Bravestarr goes back to his job not so much because of a respect for the law per se as because he realizes that without him as Marshal, not only Shaman but all of society is in danger from Tex Hex. Furthermore, there is a strong dissonance between the very explicit message at the end of the episode that we should obey the law even if we don't agree with it and the shaman's invitation to Bravestarr to consider for himself what he should do in the situation he was in, accompanied by the arguably confusing and morally ambiguous analogy of Bravestarr having had to ponder as a boy whether it was justified to rescue a bird by disturbing the sacred water it was drowning in. On the whole a rather difficult story to digest for an adult, let alone for a kid.

* CourtroomEpisode: Used in "Tex But No Hex", where the people of Fort Kerium finally take Tex Hex to court for his crimes after Stampede strips him of his powers to teach him a lesson. Tex manages to get his minion Hawgtie onto the jury, which essentially guarantees a hung jury. [[spoiler: Hawgtie votes him guilty after Bravestarr reminds him what a dick Tex is to him.]]

** Played straight with Handlebars' tavern, which serves "sweetwater", a beverage that seems to serve the same purpose as liquor.


Added DiffLines:

* ReformedCriminal: Handlebars, who did time for piracy prior to the pilot. He's pretty upset when his old crewmates come back hoping he'd want change his mind about reforming.

* TheUndertaker: In "Bravestarr: The Movie", a corpse-like robot wearing a top hat takes an unsolicited measurement of Handlebar after he threatens to deal with Tex Hex's gang himself. Then, when Tex Hex appears and tells the crowd that he is now the law, the undertaker starts offering his business card.

** Exceptions: Skuzz speaks perfect English in a few episodes ("The Witnesses" and "Who Am I?") as well as his anti-smoking AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle segment. He even manages to snark at Thirty-Thirty in "Fallen Idol" when the latter [[NiceJobBreakingItHero collapses the tunnel the pair are using by being trigger-happy]], saying "There; now you happy? From now on, leave digging to ''experts'': me!" in clear English albeit with his standard accent.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorCameo: ''Maybe???'' Around 18 minutes into "Bravestarr: The Movie", a group of townspeople appear who have a 1980s look about them. These could conceivably be portraits of people who worked on the movie.
