He stops only to watch the Rojos utterly annihilate the Baxters in their search for him. * ColdSniper: Ramon. * CripplingTheCompetition: The bad guys stomp on Joe's hands while beating him.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Essentially what defines Ramon's over-reliance to heartbound kill shots with his rifle. [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim Sure, he could just end Joe then and there]], but [[RuleOfCool if it's not as stylish as a shot to the heart, why bother?]].

* BlackAndGreyMoralityBlackAndGreyMorality: To begin with, The Man With No Name is only interested in driving the Rojos and Baxters into open warfare for the Dollars of the title. Subverted when TMWNN gets Marisol and family away from the Rojos; not only does he gain nothing from this, it very nearly gets him killed.

* ForeignRemake: Again, of ''Film/{{Yojimbo}}''. The writers didn't credit Kurosawa at first, and as a result he had to sue them.

* ForeignRemake: Again, of ''Film/{{Yojimbo}}''. The writers didn't credit Kurosawa at first, and as a result he had to sue them. He wound up being awarded the East Asian distribution rights for ''Fistful'' -- which wound up making him more money than most of his own movies.
