*** Whetever Budd's decision to shoot the Bride was really cowardly or not is up to debate. It should be noted that, while the Bride very clearly challenged both Vermita Green (by knocking to her door while not being even armed already) and O'Ren (by facing his minions first), she seemed unwilling to grant the same favor to Budd, infact, she ended up breaking through his trailer without warning, while being armed already with her katana. Whetever she did that because she did not expect Budd to offer a fair fight (which was just the case), or because she underrated his value as a fighter, is never made clear. What it seems is that Budd, at the end of the day, was not very clearly given an occasion for a real duel, so his responding to the Bride's ambush with an ambush of his own does not appear to be that cowardly.

** One would think a woman waking up from such a long coma (let alone one that had killed more than one hospital staff after doing so and was now missing and possibly armed and dangerous) would be on the news somewhere, and they'd know about it, but the Bride manages to take Vernita and O-Ren by near complete surprise. (Especially given the AnachronisticOrder of the events; Vernita clearly has no idea her old teammate's ''entire organization'' was slaughtered in something that would likely be a headline.

* PoliceAreUseless: The only cops we ever see are those at the scene of the massacre. After that, this movie takes WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief here and cranks it UpToEleven regarding the ease Beatrix pulls it all off. Most glaring examples:

** The Bride was driving around in Buck's very noticeable yellow truck in a residential area. One would assume someone whould have noticed this - to say nothing of the gunshot after a violent fight and argument - and could have called the police with a description of the vehicle. But apparently, the Bride continued to drive that same vehicle for a while, the equivalent of wearing a sign that said, "I'm a murderer on the lam".

* Hallway Fight: The Bride and Elle briefly get into a sword fight in the hallway of Budd's trailer, which leads to the Bride [[spoiler: ripping the eye from her socket and considering she only had one eye to begin with, it gives her the win.]]

* BoringButPractical: Out of Kung-Fu masters, armies of katana wielding henchman, expert assassins and knife fighting matriarchs, [[spoiler: Budd]] easily incapacitates and comes closest to killing The Bride out of all of them with nothing but [[spoiler: a shotgun full of rock salt and a syringe of tranquilizer.]]

* ConversationalTroping: When the Bride finally confronts Bill, he monologues about the nature of the SecretIdentity in superhero comics. Bill points out that whereas most heroes have to put on the costume to become their alter egos, since Superman was born as the alien Kal-L, his alter ego is in fact Clark Kent. Bill theorizes that Clark Kent is Superman's critique of humanity, comparing him to the Bride trying to blend in when she was really born to be a killer.
