* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad The Kurgan]], a terrifying, AxCrazy, [[BloodKnight combat-loving]] BlackKnight with RapePillageAndBurn as his way of life, is introduced as a brutal warrior who kills [[TheHero Connor [=MacLeod=]]] in battle. When he hunts down the now-immortal Connor, the Kurgan [[OffWithHisHead takes the head]] of Connor's mentor Ramirez and, believing Connor's wife Heather is Ramirez's lover, rapes her to cement his victory over Ramirez. Centuries later, the Kurgan, now going by "Victor Krueger," as brutal as ever, has no compunction killing innocents in his drive to be the last Immortal standing in The Game and mocks Connor about the possibility that Heather enjoyed the rape when he learns she was Connor's wife.

There are were times when the Immortals as a whole were called "Highlanders" by viewers new to the franchise.franchise. "Highlander" is not the name of the Immortals' race, but a reference to Connor's Scottish origins.
** The name of Clancy Brown's character is ''not'' Kurgan. In fact, [[NoNameGiven he has no name]]. Kurgan refers to the part of the world he came from, and characters refer to him as ''the'' Kurgan.
