Lieutenant Baude "Lefty" Hardesty Enright – The righteous and moral male hero of the second film. Lefty is the uncle of Sally and Franklin and appears as an ageing former Texas Ranger. He turns vigilante when local law enforcement fail to investigate the Sawyer family. He, in a way, was the one who was responsible for the death of the Sawyers. After he shoved a chainsaw through Leatherface's abdomen, Leatherface accidentally hit Drayton who was holding a primed grenade. The grenade explodes, apparently killing Lefty and everyone else except Vanita and Chop Top. Although Leatherface appears to have survived as he returns in other films, though they are considered either loosely direct or alternate sequels to the first and the second films, as several characters besides Leatherface return in the other sequel films, as noted on the audio commentary for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 & Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III. He is portrayed by Dennis Hopper.
