Even Chigurh sounds rather sad knowing that [[BlueAndOrangeMorality by his code]] he "has" to kill her, although he clearly could really care less about her life.]]

* NeutralEvil: Anton Chigurh, although he is quite an enigma. He appears to follow some vague form of rules, but these rules allow for the arbitrary murder of anyone unfortunate enough to cross paths with him. Even though he was only hired to retrieve a satchel of money, he ends up killing plenty more, notably [[spoiler:a deputy, benign civilians, his two mooks, his old partner, his boss, and the widow of his late-nemesis.]] In addition, he offers a coin toss to anyone he feels should have one last chance at living. The last victim calls him on the BS of the coin flip and giving people a "chance"; since he's the one ''choosing'' to put their life on the line in the first place it's not random, it's not chance, it's not the victim getting a chance, it's just ''him'' being a killer.

* FashionVictimVillain: Regarding the haircut, in the actor's words, "I'm not going to be laid for three months." Unlike most examples of the trope, it actually makes Anton ''scarier'' instead of laughable.

* {{Squick}}: Somewhat of a Fridge Squick. In the hotel shootout scene, when Llewelyn tumbles out of the pickup truck, he's covered in blood. It takes a second for it to sink in that it's not HIS blood.
** Chigurh cleaning his wounds. As well as the [[spoiler:bone sticking out of his arm.]]

* CompleteMonster: Anton Chigurh is a hired assassin defined by his nihilistic personal code. Compared to the Bubonic Plague by his former associate Carson Wells, Chigurh is an emotionless killer with no regard for human life, occasionally deciding his victims' fates with a coin toss. Introduced strangling a police officer to death with handcuffs, Chigurh proceeds to murder an innocent man to steal his car, repeating this crime later in the film. Employed to recover $2 million lost in a drug deal gone bad, Chigurh murders two of his employer's men and relentlessly hunts for Llewelyn Moss to retrieve the money. Along the way, Chigurh murders several Mexican criminals who are also pursuing Moss, shooting one of them as he surrenders, and later kills a hotel clerk and a random motorist who get caught in a gunfight between Chigurh and Moss. Chigurh later kills Wells and the man who hired them both, intending to keep the money for himself, and promises to kill Moss's wife Carla Jean unless Moss surrenders the money. making it clear that he intends to kill Moss regardless; Wells had previously commented that even if Moss gave up the money, Chigurh would kill him anyway for "inconveniencing him". After Moss is killed, Chigurh murders Carla Jean, attempting to justify this senselessly cruel act by claiming to be keeping his promise. A chilling psychopath devoid of humanity, Chigurh is presented as an unstoppable force of evil, a monster without empathy or remorse.

** Fans of WebVideo/VideoGameHighSchool will be surprised to see Josh Baylock (who plays protagonist [=BrianD=]) show up near the ending (He's the kid who gives Anton his shirt.)
