* GratuitousNazis: Among the people who apply for Hedley Lamarr's henchmen call are a bunch of [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Wehrmacht]] soldiers. Yes, in the Old West. (not that surprising given Mel Brooks is known for [[AdolfHitlarious making a mockery out of the Third Reich]].) It doesn't hurt there are some WorldWarI German soldiers also in line.

* BreakingTheFourthWall
** At least 8 examples (9 if you count the [[spoiler:end fight scene, where they break through the wall of the studio and continue the fight across several sets, culminating in Hedley Lamarr fleeing to Grauman's Chinese Theatre, and dying next to Douglas Fairbanks's footprints]]).

BreakingTheFourthWall: The movie has a pretty flimsy fourth wall to begin with, but by the [[spoiler:end end of the movie it completely collapses.
** During a speech, Hedley Lamaar says "You will only be risking your lives, while I will be risking an almost certain Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor."
** The big fight towards the end of the movie breaks out of the set and ruins a neighboring BusbyBerkeleyNumber. This would be breaking the ''third'' wall.
** Taggart: "I'm working for Creator/MelBrooks!" (writer/director).

** When Bart hears the Waco Kid moaning in his bunk, he turns to the camera and says "The drunk in number two must be awake."
** After boring the Waco Kid to sleep, Sheriff Bart looks at the camera and says, "I like to keep my audience riveted."
** While Mongo is talking with Sheriff Bart and the Waco Kid he turns to face the audience and says "Mongo only pawn in game of life".
** As two thugs assault a little old lady, she turns to the audience and asks, "Have you ever seen such cruelty?"
** Harvey Korman as the villain, is pondering his next move out loud and looks to the camera and says "Why am I asking you?"
