* AwesomeMusic: The score by Jerry Fielding.
* 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."
