* AssholeVictim: Let's just say no one but the Baxters will miss those shit disturbers who intercept and assault Joe at the start of the film when he gets his revenge and guns down a fourth Baxter [[GuiltByAssociationGag just for hanging around where he confronts them]]. The Rojos, for their part, are practically full of them--Chico especially won't be missed when he's crushed to death, considering he took a lot of glee in [[WouldHurtAChild shooting at a kid and beating up his father right in front of him]] in the very first scene.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Ramon makes Marisol his whore just because he thinks her husband owes him on account of a past gambling incident.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Ramon makes is a master at it:
** The most visible example is making
Marisol his whore just because he thinks her husband husband, Julián, owes him on account of a past gambling incident.incident. As a matter of fact, he is determined to make life as hellishly difficult for Julián and his family as possible, with as much manpower as possible, over that gambling dispute. Talk about a [[{{Pun}} fistful]] for an eye...
** More generally, woe betide anyone who befriends one of his enemies, as Silvanito found out the hard way ("And that's for being his friend!").

* ChromosoneCasting: The film has two women in supporting roles - except neither got much screentime. One was running the gang whom the story puts less focus on, and the other is just a DamselInDistress whose only purpose is to give Joe a PetTheDog moment towards the end.



* {{Determinator}}: After finding out Joe was responsible for getting Marisol and her family out of the town, Ramon has Joe beaten to a bloody pulp. Yet he was still able to not only make it out of the room he was locked into alive, but also able to take a few more henchmen down and set the Baxter home on fire.

* ShoutOut: In a musical sense. Quite a few of the musical cues (that don't use mariachi trumpets) sound straight out of a samurai movie--seemingly a nod to the film's inspiration.
