Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodLaw: This film seems to go on the notion that local judges could write warrants that gave bounty hunters like Schultz nation-wide jurisdiction to track down criminals anywhere and murder them on sight. Even in the 1850s, this was not the case.

* SickeningCrunch: What we hear as one of the [[InvoluntaryFightToTheDeath mandingo]] fighters finally subdues the other--implying most likely a broken back--after which Candie gives the victor a hammer and orders him to deliver the [[FinishHim coup de grace]].

** During the Candieland massacre one of the thugs entering through the main door is hurt in his eye by splinters of the nearby wall that's been shot at by Django. He screams and shouts. [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]], especially compared to the Mandingo fight, as the harm is neither direct nor entirely deliberate, and we don't see too much of the wound.



* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Sheriff Bill Sharp [[spoiler: actually a wanted outlaw named Willard Peck]].

* AnyoneCanDie: [[spoiler: Candie and Schultz]] are abruptly killed within seconds of each other with about a half hour left to go in the movie. By the end, [[spoiler: Django and Broomhilda]] are the only characters left standing.

** The opening of the movie states: "1858: Two years before the Civil War". In reality, the American Civil War started in 1861.

** The opening of the movie states: "1858: Two years before the Civil War". In reality, the American Civil War started in 1861. Or, since the movie probably exists in [[TheVerse the same world as Inglorious Basterds]] it might be a case of AlternateHistory.

** Django while pretending to be a black slaver. He discusses the trope with Schultz, saying that a black slaver is the lowest of the low, and Schultz suggests that if that's the characterisation that works, [[JerkassFacade that's how he should play it]] -- though he later gets concerned that Django may be taking the act too far.

* ChekhovsGun: Schultz insists that Django keep the handbill for his first bounty since it's "good luck." Django later uses it to bargain his [[spoiler:escape, post-climax, with slave traders about to transport him to a FateWorseThanDeath]].
** 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 proto-KKK members hunting down Schultz and Django.

* JerkassFacade: Django puts on one when posing as a black slaver. Candie, of course, tests it by [[spoiler:having Django more-or-less passively approve a slave being torn apart by dogs. Django can barely hold in his disgust.]]

* ContemptCrossfire: Django explains that "house niggers" (slaves who serve in a plantation rather than in the fields) are the lowest of the low, being looked down by whites for being black and hated by other slaves for their cushy job and {{Quisling}}-like position.

**It's subtle, but when we get close-up shots on character reactions to the 'Mandingo fight' in the Cleopatra club, Candie's henchman Butch Pooch looks rather unamused and even a little sad. Certainly, he's not whooping and hollering like Calvin and Moguy.
