* AnArmAndALeg: The sole BountyHunter who survives his initial encounter with Tuco in the opening scene lost his right arm as a result of his wounds. We also see some of the wounded Confederate soldiers at the monastery where Tuco's brother resides have had limbs amputated due to their battle wounds and Tuco later quips to a Union soldier who has lost an arm about his own bounty "Three thousand dollars. That's a lot of money for a head. I'll bet they didn't pay you a penny for your arm."

'''''The Good, the Bad and the Ugly''''' (Italian: '''''Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo''''', literally "The Good One, the Ugly One, the Bad One"), released in 1966, is one of the Film/DollarsTrilogy of {{Spaghetti Western}}s that served as a DeconstructorFleet to the entire [[TheWestern Western genre]]. It is the last, and probably the most famous of the trilogy, and is credited with helping to kill the Western genre and inventing a bevy of new tropes (even popularizing the MexicanStandoff). It's had an incredible impact on nearly all films since then, and is generally regarded as one of the greatest films ever created.

* ButtMonkey: Tuco. He doesn't catch a break the entire movie, and isn't successful for more than 20 onscreen minutes. Briefly, he does manage to drag Blondie around in the desert as punishment for deserting him (Blondie does win out in this case, when Bill Carson prevents Tuco from killing Blondie after telling Blondie the other half of the treasure's location). Examples of Tuco's misfortunes? He is nearly hanged for his crimes on several occasions, taken prisoner by Union soldiers (after mistaking them for Confederates), catches a hell of a beating from Corporal Wallace, is thrown off a horse from a cannon blast, survives various explosions, is attacked while taking a bath in the buff, and at the end, [[spoiler:after nearly being hanged by Blondie for all of the treachery inflicted on him earlier, he is left with his gold, but both hands tied behind his back and no horse to get back to town.]] Then again, Tuco is a greedy and conniving bandit who probably deserves most of what happens to him.

* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: It rates a 5. There's some blood, but it's the brutality of the violence that puts it on this level. [[spoiler:Tuco's (Eli Wallach) savage beating, complete with attempted eye-gouging, at the hands of Corporal Wallace (Mario Brega), Wallace's head being repeatedly bashed against a jagged rock by Tuco (and later his corpse being dragged for a while by a train that drives over it), and Angel Eyes (Lee Van Cleef) shooting Baker (Livio Lorenzon) in the face through a pillow rank as the movie's most cruel moments]]. Other than that, the gun violence is pretty clean and bloodless.

** That cannon shot lands right ''next to Tuco'', yet all it does is throw him and his horse down on the ground. In real life, horse and rider would have been blown to tiny bits. Then again, Tuco's survived this much already, so it's not surprising that he'd survive a cannon fire either.

** It's not actually possible to neatly cut a rope with a single shot, especially not from a great distance.
