** Reverend Gilbert is shown throughout to be a fire and brimstone preacher of Fort Bailey, expressing vehement racist views in his sermons, blaming Native Americans and interracial marriages for the presence of werewolfs - despite the fact werewolves were brought over from Europe. A particular target of his ire is his leader Wallace Rowlands for his marriage to a "savage" woman. Taking an immediate disdain for the Fitzgerald sisters for being a "temptation", Gilbert tries to have them killed by a werewolf and later tries to burn Brigitte alive, denouncing her as a witch.
** James is an arrogant, thuggish and racist Sargent of Fort Bailey, who regularly bullies everyone around him. Over the course of the film, he leaves one of his soldiers to be ripped apart by werewolves; attempts to rape Brigitte; throws a mixed race boy out of Fort Bailey to die after his father's death; and tries to batter Ginger herself when she shows up to rescue Brigitte.
* JerkAss: Wallace, James and Reverend Gilbert can all be quite aggressive, judgmental, cold and just flat out unpleasant at times. The same is true of Claude and Cormac once they start following James more in the second half (although the worst Cormac does is knock down a woman they know has been infected).

Added DiffLines:

* CanadaEh: While all three films are set in Canada, this is the most explicitly Canadian film in the series. The setting, unlike its American counterpart TheWildWest, is heavily rooted in Canada's era of westward exploration, built upon the fur industry, the hostile wilderness, and natives who are more interested in trading furs for guns than anything.
