    Cherry Darling 

Cherry Darling

Played By: Rose McGowan

  • Action Girl: Once she's taken a level in badass, she tears shit up.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Loses a leg during the movie.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Special mention goes to:
    Cherry: Look, you were being an unbelievable dick. I was walking out on you. I was cold, I took your fucking jacket. So, if you're go on one of your psycho, obsessive, controlling rants about a fucking jacket, then fucking take it 'cause I'd rather fucking freeze than fucking hear about it one more time!
  • Combat Stilettos: Well, she only has the one stiletto for her action scenes, but the point remains.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Recognised as one in-universe. Before the plot kicked off, she intended to become a stand-up comedienne. Wray thinks she could still pull it off.
    Wray Some of their best jokes are about cripples!
  • Handicapped Badass: It's only after losing her leg that she actually becomes a badass.
  • Leg Cannon: Literally; she has an assault rifle instead of a leg for the last twenty minutes of the film.
  • No Name Given: "Cherry Darling" is unlikely to be her real name, and "Palomita" is just Wray's name for her.
  • Rocket Jump: In the climax, she uses the grenade launcher attached to the assault rifle serving as her leg to launch herself into the air.
  • Someone to Remember Him By: She gives birth to Wray's daughter after he dies saving her.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Words fail to describe.
  • Woman in White: At the end.

Played By: Marley Shelton

  • Adrenaline Makeover: By the end of the film, she's ditched the white coat and done-up hairstyle. Her makeup also fades over the course of the film.
  • Bi the Way: She was planning to leave her husband for another woman, and seems to be attracted to Cherry.
  • Broken Bird: Domestic abuse and losing a son will do that to you.
  • Hospital Hottie: Lampshaded by Bill's friend Joe, who makes several remarks about Dakota... to her husband's face.

    JT Hague 

JT Hague

Played By: Jeff Fahey

  • Badass Beard: A pretty nice one, too.

  • Cool Old Guy: Looks to be in his fifties, yet he's quite a badass.
  • Deadpan Snarker: After Wray orders a cup of coffee at his restaurant.
    Wray: I still eat here, JT.
    JT: Oh, yeah. Try not to choke on all that food you're eatin'.

  • Team Chef: His barbecue is apparently so "goddamn good" that Jesse James built him a motorcycle "free of fucking charge" in return.

Played By: Michael Biehn

    Deputy Tolo 

Deputy Tolo

Played By: Tom Savini

  • Badass: Despite generally being a Butt Monkey, Tolo does get a few kills, most prominently the zombie who bit off his finger, which gets three consecutive uppercut/gunshots.
  • Butt Monkey: Gets his finger bitten off, accidentally shoots a hospital patient, accidentally shoots his boss (both of which earn him the title of "dumbass" from Hague), and then is torn apart by zombies. Poor bastard.

    Tammy Visan 

Tammy Visan

Played By: Stacy Ferguson
