* CompleteMonster: Captain Terrill is the bloodthirsty leader of the Redlegs, a group of [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar pro-Union]] looters and pillagers who open the film torching the titular character's house to the ground and murdering his family, [[WouldHurtAChild including his young son]]. Enlisted as a genuine federal authority by Senator Lane in order to dispose of any holdouts at the end of the Civil War, Terrill exercises his new power by having his Redlegs massacre a group of surrendering Confederates who had been promised amnesty and mortally wounding one of the escaping survivors himself. Terrill begins a ruthless manhunt for Josey Wales across the countryside after he escapes the carnage, with full intent to move onto Texas afterwards and continue killing rebels, coldly remarking that "Doin' right ain't got no end."

* CrowningMomentOfFunny:
-->'''Josey''': Seems when I get to likin' someone, they ain't around for long.
-->'''Lone Watie''': I notice when you get to dis-likin' someone, they ain't around for long neither.
** And:
-->'''Bounty Hunter''' (attempting to apprehend Josey): A man's gotta make a livin'.
-->'''Josey:''' Dyin' ain't much of a livin', boy.
** Another Example:
-->'''Josey:''' How's it on stains? ''[spits]''
*** In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it gag, the carpetbagger ''actually does'' use his product to get the stain out in a later scene.
** And of course, the "Missouri Boat Ride" scene.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Josey's confrontation with Ten Bears. The celebration at Blood Butte.
* TearJerker: "This boy was brought up in a time of blood and dying and never questioned a bit of it. He never turned his back on his folks or his kind. I rode with him... and I got no complaints. The blue bellies will give ya a better burial than I can, boy."

* TruthInTelevision: The fighting in Missouri during the UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar really was as savage as the film implies, and in more than a few cases was used as an excuse to address old arguments and rivalries that may not have even had anything to do with the causes of the war itself. In fact some parts of the Missouri/Kansas border area ''still'' maintain bitter animosity over the war to this day.
