* PlayingCardMotifs: Certainly expected in a movie based on {{poker}}. During a scene where Maverick tries to choose which card he draws from a deck, he picks the Queen of Hearts - a foreshadowing of his romantic encounter with Annabelle Bransford.

* ByNoIMeanYes:
-->'''Coop:''' See, my feeling is that if there weren't any women none of us would be here. \\
'''Maverick:''' What kind of sense does that make? If there were no men, we wouldn't be here either. \\
'''Coop:''' Are you mocking me? \\
'''Maverick:''' Don't get ruffled. Let's just say I was agreeing with you in a totally unusual way.

* HaHaHaNo: Maverick does this to intimidate Angel after winning a fight against five other men - previously Angel had called him a gutless cheat and after the fight, tried to tell Maverick he was only teasing.
-->'''Maverick:''' Teasing? Ah, hahahaha-''I don't like being teased''.
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: The gunfighter at the first poker game in the movie is strongly implied to be John Wesley Hardin.
* HonorBeforeReason: When Maverick [[spoiler:realized they were playing with a fixed deck, he wanted a new shuffle, new deck, and new dealer. This is despite him understanding TheMagicPokerEquation and the fix could work in his favor]].

* AlanSmithee: On the score album, the last track is a saloon song called "Tartine De Merde," whose singer is billed as "[[Film/ThreeAmigos S. Bush]]." Have a look at the music credit on the poster above there to see his real name.

* SherlockScan: [[spoiler: Annabelle knows Zane is Bret's father almost immediately. They both sing "Amazing Grace" the wrong way, for example, and they both have the same ... er, physical characteristics.]]

* MundaneSolution: Annabelle spends the whole movie trying to con, cheat and pickpocket her way into big poker game and counts on her skill as a player to see her through. [[spoiler:She gets nowhere with these tricks and in the end she simply steals half of Maverick's winnings by pulling a gun on him. It's implied that he lets her get away with it so he can have fun trying to get it all back]].

She was able to deduce ''right from the start'' that Zane was Bret's father and went along with it]].

* CardSharp: A few of the players at the game...but when they get caught, they're thrown overboard (one of which was ClintBlack, who sang the song that plays over the poker playing montage.)

* CastingGag:
** A bankrobber (who states that he's "getting too old for this") is played by Danny Glover, who co-starred with Gibson in ''Film/LethalWeapon''. Also an ActorAllusion.
** Similarly, several cheats in the big riverboat championship are thrown overboard. The first is Clint Black, who is also the singer of the song over the very montage he's tossed out in.
