* ThemeTuneCameo: A remarkable example. Creator/EnnioMorricone composed a musical theme for both John and Juan, which is played in the background when we see them, but ''never'' diegetically. Then, all of a sudden, John begins to whistle "his" musical theme; but what really takes the cake is the fact that Juan, not even seeing his buddy, ''instantly recognizes'' him by what's being whistled. A strange case of either MagicalRealism or MediumAwareness.

* FullCircleRevolution: Juan's view of revolution is that the poor die to replace those in power with other selfish rich people. Then the cycle simply repeats itself.

* TitleDrop: The phrase "Duck, you sucker(s)", an original title if the film, is used multiple times, typically [[spoiler: before John blows something to hell and back]]. And the very last TitleDrop, shaped as the end credits directly answering the protagonist's final AsideComment, alludes to one of the central messages of the film.
