* DeadAllAlong: A popular interpretation is that [[spoiler:the Stranger is the ghost of the dead Marshall, given that he relives the marshal's death, which he wasn't there for otherwise. He could also be some sort of avenging spirit as well. The original script identified him as the marshal's brother]].

* [[spoiler: DeadAllAlong]]: The Stranger. [[spoiler: it's implied he's the spirit of the dead marshal returned to take revenge on both the men who killed him and the townspeople, some of whom were responsible for the plot to kill the marshal and the rest too cowardly and greedy to do anything about the murder.]]
** [[spoiler: Eastwood makes it ambiguous. He COULD be the spirit of the dead Marshall, but on the other hand the original script claimed he was the dead marshall's brother and the film does nothing to refute this. If he were the marshall's brother, he'd still have the same name i.e. the same last name, as the marshall. Plus The Stranger seems to do a lot of the things that 'out and out ghost' [[PaleRider The Preacher]] couldn't i.e. have sex]]

* AcceptableTargets: The [[DirtyCoward cowardly]] of course. The townsfolk are repeatedly shown to be either unwillingly to confront or even care about the evils within their own town.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Originally, the stranger was [[spoiler: the marshal's brother]] and may still be, the script was changed to leave it up to the viewers. The most common are [[spoiler: the ghost of the Marshal or Satan.]]
