Chuck Jones had a great-uncle who used to stay with his family sometimes; he was a retired Texas Ranger, short, redheaded, with an huge mustache and a hair-trigger temper, and generally thought to be the model of Sam.

Sam. Others, however, say it was Creator/FrizFreleng himself who was the model for Sam, himself a short, mustachioed man with a large nose and (according to his daughter) a very bad temper.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'', where he's no longer such a jerkass and obeys the laws about not firing off his guns at random. According to his musical "Blow My Stack", he's taken several jobs to try and keep his temper under control, but he's just not able to hold himself back.

-> "''OOOOOHHHH, AHHH HATES RABBITS!!!''"



* {{Angrish}}: "Raggar fraggar friggin frazzer" is one of his catchphrases. He turns it UpToEleven in From Hare To Heir.
* ArchEnemy: Bugs Bunny is this to him, but it doesn't work both ways (Bugs' arch-enemy being Elmer Fudd)



* BadassBoast: At the start of almost every cartoon he's in.



* BadBoss: He is sometimes shown to be this he is shown beating or shooting his men for their failures. In one short sounds of beating and shooting come from his ship, and a man covered in bruises and tattered clothes runs out of the ship, telling the audience "I was a human being once".
* {{Bandito}}: Sam appears as Mexican bandito 'Pancho Vanilla' in the SpeedyGonzales short "Pancho's Hideaway".



* FieryRedhead: Quite obviously.

to:

* FieryRedhead: TheChewToy: Obviously, being one of Bugs's enemies.
* ADayInTheLimelight: ''Honey's Money'', the only short to feature Sam as the main protagonist and not contain any other Looney Tunes characters.
* {{Determinator}}
* EvilIsHammy: "I'M THE FASTEST GUN NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, '''AAAANNNNDDD''' WEST OF THE PECOS!"
* EvilRedhead:
Quite obviously.obviously combined with FieryRedhead.
* {{Expy}}: The Creator/DePatieFrelengEnterprises short ''Panchos Hideaway'' features the bandit Pancho Vanilla, in terms of personality, role and design, Pancho's largest differences are his darker facial hair and mexican accent.



* TheGunslinger: Sam is most commonly a trigger-happy gunslinger.



* HarmlessVillain : Ironically offered as little a challenge to Bugs as Elmer at times.
* HenpeckedHusband: In "Honey's Money".



* IdiotBall: Yosemite Sam digging for "buried treasure" on bottom of a ship... [[WhatAnIdiot what a maroon.]]

* ManChild: Has the stature and temperament of a child, but packs heat (and a mighty fine 'stache, to boot).



* NiceHat: A very large, light-colored cowboy hat.
* NoIndoorVoice: He yells a lot.



* RecycledINSPACE: Has appeared in almost every stock villain role throughout his run, albeit always maintaining his bandit mask and western dialect. It literally happens in "Lighter Than Hare".



* WorthIt: Played straight in “WesternAnimation/HoneysMoney” (see its own entry); subverted in “Hare Trimmed” (when he beats a hasty retreat at the altar).
** Curiously, the former involved a $5 million inheritance and the latter was $50 million.

* WorthyOpponent: Created as a more formidable villain compared to Elmer, [[VillainDecay it didn't ''quite'' last however]].

Sam has been portrayed either as a gunsling prospector, outlaw, pirate, cowboy, {{black knight}}, etc., depending on the cartoon, sometimes with different alias if the setting isn't based on Western. At heart, he stays a cowboy, anyway.

* BadassMoustache: Yosemite Sam sports a huge muttonchop mustache, along with a smaller beard. He even has a musical in ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'' where it ''sings to him'' about being his lifelong friend and persuading him to never shave it. In the song, it also displays PrehensileHair abilities, complete with punching out Daffy Duck for laughing at Sam getting knocked down. In the same show, it's revealed he's had it since he was a baby.
