* GladIThoughtOfIt: Invoked; Stephen despairingly recalls how [[HintDropping heavily he had to drop hints]] before anyone picked up on his suggestion of [[spoiler:selling Django to a mining company known for its atrociously cruel treatment of slaves.]]

* AmbiguouslyGay: Billy Crash, who is disappointed that he does not get to cut off Django's testicles [[spoiler: runs a finger down Django's nutsack]], and walks swishy.

** While straws are a very old invention, the high quality, plastic kind that Candie uses, had not yet come into being.

** As is often common in westerns, many of the firearms and weapons used in the film did not yet exist during the movie's timeframe.

** Schultz is by far the nicest character in the movie. Although his Germanic origins meant that he did not share the same attitudes towards black people and slavery as the denizens of the South, it's still telling how far he would go to help Django rescue his wife. However, when it comes to bounty hunting, Schultz is willing to grievously injure and kill every last one of his marks, rather than capture them alive. He has no qualms against shooting a man in cold blood, even in front of his own son. The bounties are "dead or alive", but the payout's the same either way and a corpse is a lot easier to bring in (can't try to run away and doesn't have to be fed).

* AristocratsAreEvil: {{Played with}}. Wealthy southern slaveholders like Big Daddy and Calvin Candie like to think of themselves as sophisticated and intellectual aristocrats and style themselves after what they presume to be their European counterparts. However, they are, in reality, nothing more than barbaric thugs who engage in violence, slavery (including sex slavery), bloodsports, and discredited pseudo-sciences (although at the time, phrenology really was viewed as valid by many). Actual aristocratic Enlightenment figures they superficially admire such as Alexandre Dumas and Ludwig van Beethoven would abhor them on principle.

* AskAStupidQuestion: The two Speck brothers ask Schultz what kind of doctor he is, as if oblivious to the fact that he has just rode into the scene driving a wagon that has a big bouncy tooth on a spring on the roof. Schultz gives a straight reply.

* BeautifulSlaveGirl: Seen several times. Candie owns at least three of these. Sheba is made to wear alluring attire, and is apparently something of a consort to Candie. She seems pretty happy with her role. Broomhilda, on the other hand, is openly made available to Candie's visitors to show his "hospitality", and is traumatized by it. He also owns a slave who's forced to wear a FrenchMaidOutfit.

* BlownAcrossTheRoom: Mostly averted, but played straight in a couple instances, such as when [[spoiler:Butch Pooch shoots Schultz with a sawed-off shotgun and Schultz's body is thrown backwards into a bookshelf. A very weird example happens with the "Bye, Miss Lara!" scene, when Django shoots Lara and she is thrown backwards at a completely different angle than how she was shot, resulting in her getting yanked into the next room ''Film/ParanormalActivity''-style (so it'd be more like "Blown ''Out of'' the Room".]] That, of course, was a reference to the SpaghettiWestern genre of old, of which this movie is based on. Deaths of women were usually less gory or not entirely shown.

* BulletproofHumanShield: Both averted and played straight in the big shootout near the end, where Django shoots through several mooks and hitting the person behind them, but when he picks one of them up to act as a shield, none of the mook's bullets can penetrate despite a heavy number of rounds being emptied into the body.

* CurseCutShort: Stephen to Django, [[spoiler:shortly before biting the big one, manages: "Django! You uppity son of a--" before Candyland explodes gloriously with him in it.]] Most likely a reference to TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly, which ends with a similar line.

Added DiffLines:

* TongueTrauma: Stephen mentions that any "sass" at the [=LeQuint=] Dickey Mining Company from the slaves gets their tongues cut out, and apparently the guys doing the cutting have enough know-how that the poor saps don't even get the mercy of bleeding out.

** Much earlier, the big bouncy tooth on top of Schultz's wagon is used to store dynamite, which is then used to blow up the poto-KKK members hunting down Schultz and Django.

* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: Averted to the point that it verges on parody. The 'nigger on a horse' gag as they ride into Daughtrey is clearly an homage to the 'welcoming the sheriff' scene in ''BlazingSaddles'' -- right down to the porch-front reaction-shots.
