* {{Deconstruction}}: Leone largely made this film as a response to the so-called "Zapata Westerns" like ''A Bullet for the General'' and ''Companeros'' that glorified revolutionary politics. ''Duck, You Sucker!'' shows revolution as extremely wasteful and neither side innocent in its atrocities.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Creator/SergioLeone took many liberties with regards to the actual Mexican Revolution. This was however for the most part deliberate with the revolution as it was intended to be symbolic portrayal of revolutions in general, rather than an accurate description of Mexican revolution in particular (that's why the film refers not only to Mexican, but also to Irish and, through Mao's quote, Chinese revolutions).
