* BigBad: The governor, who is directly or indirectly responsible for most of the terrible things that happen in the film. However, he is completely harmless in person and is easily disposed of.

* {{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).

* 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.

Directed by Creator/SergioLeone in 1971, the film takes place during the UsefulNotes/MexicanRevolution in 1913. Juan Miranda, a Mexican bandit, has a chance encounter with early Irish nationalist John Mallory. Mallory also happens to be a demolitions expert with enough explosives to level a mountain.
