* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:At least in the original version which Sergio intended. Silence, Pauline, and the rest of the villagers all were gunned down by the bounty hunters. However, it's averted in the [[AlternateEnding alternate ending]], due to Sergio being pressured to do so for Asian and South African markets because of the original depressing bleak ending.]] ** BittersweetEnding: It's heavily implied (possibly outright stated- edit as necessary) that the ending leads to the end of [[BountyHunter bounty hunting]] as a legal profession, so while [[spoiler: TheHeroDies and [[KillEmAll so does most of the cast,]] the villains' victory is short-lived and [[PyrrhicVictory pyrrhic.]]]]

* SenselessSacrifice: Silence is wounded in his shoulder, is handicapped by [[spoiler: his right hand being burned]] and calmly walks up to a building in which [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption six bounty hunters are holed up]]. To drive the point home, the first thing that happens in the final scene is [[spoiler: a bounty hunter shooting Loco's left hand through a window, totally crippling him]].

This seemed like something that should be a spoiler.

''The Great Silence'' or ''Il grande silenzio'' is a 1968 Italian spaghetti western directed by Sergio Corbucci. It is considered Corbucci's greatest film and has a reputation for being one of the bleakest westerns ever. It plays with a lot of western tropes, such as the usual protagonist of few words actually being a mute, and intentionally provoking his enemies into drawing first.

* DiabolusExMachina: Of the AssPull variety. It's clearly established in the first half of the movie that [[spoiler: a frozen gun does not fire]]. That doesn't make much sense, but okay, we'll go along with it. Then Loco [[spoiler: digs a rifle from under a mound of snow and kills the sheriff with it]]. ** Then again, [[spoiler: Loco had the presence of mind to wrap his gun up in animal skin to keep it from freezing over, like he instructed the sheriff to do earlier in the film]]
