* BlastingItOutOfTheirHands: Part of Matt's ImprobableAimingSkills; he does this to a cowboy to prevent a fatal shootout between said cowboy and Dunson.



* ChekhovsGun: One of the cowboys has a habit of stealing from the sugar supply. Eventually he knocks over a bunch of pans while stealing sugar, causing the cattle to stampede;.



* DueToTheDead: Dunson has an odd habit of giving a Christian burial and reading a service to the men he murders. The three guys who escape from his cattle drive call him on this as he's about to execute them.



* FatalFamilyPhoto: There isn't a photo. But otherwise this trope is played straight as Dan the cowboy waxes on about the nice red shoes and all the other things he'd like to buy his pretty bride, only to die in the very next scene during the stampede.



* TheNarrator: Groot, [[ReCut depending on which cut of the film you're watching.]]

* TheNarrator: Groot, [[ReCut depending on which cut of the film you're watching.]]]] The cut commonly available in latter days has pages from a diary instead of spoken narration.


Added DiffLines:

* SuckOutThePoison: Well, maybe Matt really did think that Tess had been shot with a poison arrow. Or maybe he just wanted some action.


Added DiffLines:

* YouNoTakeCandle: Quo the faithful Indian says stuff like "Me bet one silver dollar. Put up, or keep face closed." (Of course, Quo actually wins that poker hand.)

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Without quite saying so, the film makes clear that Tess and all the girls in the wagon train that our heroes encounter are prostitutes. They are, after all, strangely attractive and dressed suspiciously well for a Wild West wagon train.
