** Tommy Plympton was named in honor of animator Creator/BillPlympton, whom Quentin Tarantino had recently met and became friends with at [=ComiCon=][[note]]"Met and became friends with" meaning that Plympton supposedly saw Tarantino, [[FanBoy leapt over his table in the dealer's room and ran over to gush about how big a fan he was]].[[/note]]

* {{Badass}}: ''All'' the Deadly Vipers, Pai-Mei, etc.
** O-Ren's father put up a hell of a bare-handed fight in the animated flashback sequence.
** After the Bride hits Bill [[spoiler: with the five points exploding palm technique, which kills after the victim takes 5 steps, Bill manages to take '''6 steps'''.]]

* BlondesAreEvil: Elle Driver. Averted with the Bride.
** Somewhat questionable that the Bride is an aversion... see BlackAndGrayMorality above.



* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Master assassin Bill has a noted preference for blondes. He was involved with at least two of his students, both beautiful blonde women (the Bride and [[BlondesAreEvil Elle Driver]]), and his pimp father notes that he had a [[PrecociousCrush Precocious]] CelebCrush on Lana Turner after seeing her in ''Film/ThePostmanAlwaysRingsTwice1946'' as a small boy.

** The scene that starts the Bride's plan to leave the DiVas counts as well. [[spoiler: She's just discovered she's pregnant, and the assassin sent to kill her agrees to go home, rather than kill a pregnant woman.]]

* AffectionateParody: Of the entire cinema medium, East and West. This movie also has an example of its own in the form of a Norwegian movie titled "Kill Buljo" which started out as a simple project by amateur directors and actors for the fun of it, with a very low budget. In the end, it became a huge success in Norway, to a degree got released internationally and Quentin Tarantino himself proclaimed "I love it. I love it!"
