* NiceJobBreakingItHero: When Kane goes to the church for help, many of the congregation are willing. However one man convinces them otherwise, saying a gunfight will lead to bad publicity and lack of investment. But the gunfight happens anyway, whereas a posse might have convinced Frank Miller to back down rather than take on superior numbers.

* WetBlanketWife: For most of the film, Kate is adamant that if Will stays and fights a group who are out to kill him, she will leave him. She's trying to keep him alive, and if he's going to recklessly endanger his life, she wants to be on the train out of town when he gets himself killed rather than see it happen.

* WhenTheClockStrikesTwelve: Twelve o'clock Noon, in this case. We are constantly given shots of the clock and pendulum to remind us of Kane's supposedly imminent comeuppance.
