** He stops short of being a CompleteMonster though. Makes it clear that fighting Kid is something he does not want to do, and ''orders'' the boy several times to back out, with no disgrace (an opportunity he never gave any of his opponents who had come this far into the tournament). [[spoiler: For the young man, that was never an option - he'll only stop when Herod acknowledges him as his son. Something Herod cannot do for obvious reasons, [[BerserkButton he HATES liars]], and he murdered his wife for suspecting her of being "unfaithful". Acknowledging Kid, would tear him up inside, as he'd be unable to reconcile himself for killing someone who telling him the truth. He eventually shoots and kills Kid, leaving with regret. Its up to the viewer's interpretation as to whether Herod pitied the boy for loving a man who wasn't his father, or realized he may have just killed his own child.]]

* MagnificentBastard: Herod. This magnificent bastard not only holds an entire town hostage as his own little kingdom, once killed a group of priests who nursed him back to health and burned down their mission, [[spoiler: shoots and kills a boy who loves and looks up to him as a father]], and was the man who [[spoiler: forced a small girl (the protagonist) to accidentally shoot and kill her own father as she attempted to shoot through his hangman's noose]], but he also hosts an annual picnic-and-quick-draw competition where anybody who wants to take a shot at him (literally) can do so (and most likely end up dead for the effort), all with an eat-your-heart-out smirk on his mug the whole time!
