* StartOfDarkness: Herod's father, although a respectable authority figure, ''was a bit of nutcase''. Convinced there was too much evil in the world that had to be purged, he would regularly force his family to view hangings, desensitizing Herod to death. It got to the stage where he would [[SadisticChoice play a sick game of Russian Roulette]] with Herod and his mother, killing himself.

* SimpleYetAwesome: Herod doesn't organize the annual duel tournament for fun (a statement [[ForTheEvulz contradicted by his immense pleasure watching opponents die]], see YMMV), but even he appreciates the town ''has gone to hell'' since he took over, and its [[HumansAreBastards people will kill you for your bootlaces]]. He participates so he can face his enemies one-on-one, without fear of them shooting him in the back when he's vulnerable or off-guard.

Added DiffLines:

* IronicEcho: Cort calls out Herod for changing the rules of the contest, requiring a fight to the death from the second round on. [[spoiler: Herod does it again before facing Cort, telling his mooks to gun Cort down if he's still standing. Cort responds in kind, taking out the mooks to make the final fight between Herod and Ellen fair.]]

* OnlyAFleshWound: Gutzon, the Swedish gunfighter, announces before his duel with the Kid that he does not wish to kill a child, and will only shoot to wound. The Kid, who's faster on the draw, repays him in kind; Gutzon catches a bullet in the leg and arm, but limps away alive, and is therefore the only entrant to lose a duel and survive (largely because Herod begins enforcing DuelToTheDeath as a rule in the second round.)

Cort's first opponent is shot and the arm and lives, and so does Ellen's. Many of the first round battles pass by in a montage, leaving the losers' fates unclear.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: The entire populace would rather see Herod dead than continuing to run the town. Do you think he cares?

* ImprobableAimingSkills: Cort, Herod, The Kid, The Lady, and a few others. In reality, quickdraw showdowns ''only'' work when the target is standing in the same place every time: there's no time to aim, and quickdraw training is specifically for hittin the same target in the same place as quickly as possible. If the target is in a different place, a quickdraw specialist will be a severe disadvantage.
