* AntiHero: Do-won. It's interesting to note that if one tallies kill counts throughout the film by the three protagonists, Chang-yi (The Bad) is the least murderous of the three while Do-won (The Good) racks up the highest body count. This reflects the on-screen kill count in ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'': Angel Eyes, for all of his OffscreenVillainy, has the lowest body count of three, while Blondie has the highest body count: 11.

* AnachronismStew: With guns and most of the military hardware. If it's supposed to be set in the early 1930s in Manchuria, then Good uses mostly outdated guns from the 1890s (except a very "modern" revolver), Bad is using a "modern" revolver and submachine gun that wasn't even produced till 1941, while Weird's Walthers P38, as the name implies, were put into service in 1938. Not to mention the military trucks and jeeps, being mostly post-WWII models (but still Imperial Army soldiers are the most accurately outfitted to the time period).
** Maybe not - during the course of the film, it is stated that Tae-goo is 35 years old, and [[spoiler: his new wanted poster at the end of the film]] says that he was born in 1906, which would place the film in the year 1941.
*** The jeeps still don't belong there.

** Do-won could also arguably be considered an AntiHero. It's interesting to note that if one tallies kill counts throughout the film by the three protagonists, Chang-yi (The Bad) is the least murderous of the three while Do-won (The Good) racks up the highest body count.

Three Koreans in exile cross paths [[UsefulNotes/SecondSinoJapaneseWar in 1930s Manchuria during the Japanese occupation.]] Park Chang-yi, the hitman/bandit leader, is hired to steal a treasure map from a Japanese official, but a train robber, Yoon Tae-goo, beats him to the punch -- only to be captured by a BountyHunter, Park Do-won. Tae-goo talks Do-won into helping him search for the treasure instead, and they set off through the desert together, with Chang-yi's gang ''and'' the Japanese army in pursuit. During the action-filled chase that follows, each of the three turns out to have some hidden motives.

* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: For all three of the protagonists: Do-won dresses like a cowboy, Chang-yi like a pop star, and Tae-goo like a hipster RummageSaleReject. And they are all in 1930s Manchuria.
