* GenreSavvy:
** Tuco. "When you have to shoot, shoot, [[EvilGloating don't talk]]." sums it up pretty well.
** Blondie as well. [[spoiler:Unloading Tuco's gun the night before arriving at the cemetery did the trick.]]

** Though to complicate matters, Tuco's look ranges from the determined squint through to the wide eyed amazement, and he is by no means a saint.

* HeavySleeper: Zig-zagged with Tuco: he's unbothered by mass commotion but is often roused by violent physical jolts, if not a noise that's louder than the rest. In a deleted scene when Blondie tried to club him with an animal bone in the desert, he had lightly dozed off in the saddle and woke himself just in time. However, in the prisoner of war train he was undisturbed by a train car full of Confederate prisoners all snoring like bulls but the jolt of the train car on the track roused him and made him look around; after he and Blondie blew up the bridge, he slept soundly and deeply through the commotion of soldiers leaving the trenches, but the next morning it was a violent push from Blondie's foot that woke him up.

* SupportingProtagonist: Clint Eastwood may have got top billing, but this is really Tuco's story. In fact, he gets the most screentime of the main characters.

* 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, [[spoiler:had his gun emptied by Blondie while he slept]], 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. In case you're worried about him, there's a solid chance he'll be fine. His hands were bound with thin twine which he could easily get out of in time, and Angel Eyes' gun, is nearby. He can collect supplies from the makeshift Confederate fort not far away, hydrate his skin in the river and can make it back to town by carrying just a few gold coins after he's reburied the rest. [[IronButtMonkey He also survives things that no man should.]]

* BathtubScene: Fifty year old [[BigBeautifulMan Tuco]] had this... which doubles with NakedPeopleAreFunny when a vengeful bounty hunter (that Tuco had shot in the hand earlier) bursts in on him and starts yapping at him about his victory. He delivers a long speech about how he tracked Tuco down, and how he had lots of time to learn to shoot with his left hand... which is cut off when Tuco shoots him with a gun hidden under the bathtub bubbles.

Somewhat fittingly -- given that the "Dollars" trilogy started with an unauthorized knockoff of ''Film/{{Yojimbo}}'' -- ''The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly'' now has a ForeignRemake in ''Film/TheGoodTheBadTheWeird'' (which is Korean and moves the setting to [[UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan Japanese-controlled]] Manchuria in the [[UsefulNotes/SecondSinoJapaneseWar 1930s]]).

* JustTrainWrong: The military train is quite clearly a Spanish steam engine (note the buffers as it pulls into the station) pulling European-style two-axle cars. By the 1860s, bogie cars were well-established in America.

Added DiffLines:

* NoOSHACompliance:
** TruthInTelevision, since Creator/EliWallach, whose staggering tenacity was mentioned previously on this page, describes being almost decapitated during the filming of one of the train scenes on the DVD.
** Creator/ClintEastwood apparently warned Wallach not to trust the Italian film crew because of how dangerous it could become during filming. See FatalMethodActing above for the ways in which poor Eli suffered. Also, the bridge went off at the wrong time.
** Speaking of the bridge scene, if you look closely, a ''huge'' piece of debris lands about two feet from Clint's head as he's behind the sandbags. And you all thought it was for effect.


Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyLook: Creator/EliWallach was 50 at the time of filming. He does not show it at all.


Added DiffLines:

* PlayingGertrude: Luigi Pistilli plays Tuco's AloofBigBrother, but Pistilli was 14 years younger than Creator/EliWallach.
