* BadassNormal: Compared to [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy's]] [[DreamWeaver Dream Powers]] or [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason's]] NighInvulnerability, Leatherface is just some burly dude with above average but by no means unusual strength who relies on brute force and the sheer terror his [[ChainsawGood Chainsaw]] and GenuineHumanHide causes in his victims. Overall, Leatherface is probably one of the more realistic horror villians, at least, in terms of ability.
* DracoInLeatherPants: You read correct people - Leatherface, espically Tom Hewitt.

* EvilIsSexy: Almost always avoided. Exceptions are Tex from ''TCM III'' and Darla from ''The Next Generation''.
** Also [[spoiler: Heather]] from ''Texas Chainsaw 3D''.
* JerkassWoobie: Leatherface.
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: If anyone ever mentions the Atari 2600 game, it is only because because it is bad.
