* ImperialGermany: Where the German and his men are supposedly from, given their plane style and the German military symbols on the gun crates they deliver to El Guapo. The German himself is obviously a RedBaron {{Expy}}


Added DiffLines:

* RedBaron: We never learn the real names of either El Guapo or the German. The German himself is also obviously an {{Expy}} of the TropeNamer, complete with a red WorldWarI biplane.

** Although the German himself speaks English, his men don't. All their dialogue is in unsubtitled German.

** The German also lets his two subordinates fire their guns into the air during the celebration. Although he himself doesn't participate, he's seen smiling at how much fun his men are having.

* BewareTheSillyOnes: The German agents dress somewhat like dandies, with straw hats and [[BowTiesAreCool bowties]], but as soon as someone in the BadGuyBar calls them sissies, they promptly [[DisproportionateRetribution shoot everyone in the place]].



* PinnedToTheWall: When the third German agent tries to draw his gun against Lucky, Dusty flings a knife at him, sticking the sleeve of his coat to a post.



** Near the end, Dusty Bottoms throws a knife and pins one of The German's two henchman to a pole by the sleeve of his coat. The last we see of him he's still pinned to the pole. We never find out what happened to him.

* NoSell: Played with when Lucky is shot. It knocks him off his horse and hurts when it's touched, but otherwise him bleeding from a gun shot wound just seems to confuse and anger him, without even restricting his mobility.


Added DiffLines:

** TruthInTelevision here. Early Hollywood stars often had these skills and would perform their own stunts and fights on camera.

Not to be confused with the Disney film ''Disney/TheThreeCaballeros''. [[note]] ironically, this films working title was in fact "The Three Caballeros"[[/note]] Distinct from the trope called Main/ThreeAmigos. Compare with ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', which has the same basic plot as this, but [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE!]]

''¡Three Amigos!'' is a 1986 comedy film directed by Creator/JohnLandis. Dusty Bottoms (Creator/ChevyChase), Lucky Day (Creator/SteveMartin, who also co-wrote the script with Lorne Michaels and Creator/RandyNewman - yes, that one[[note]]Newman also did the original songs[[/note]]), and Ned Nederlander (Creator/MartinShort) are a trio of actors who are hired to protect a small Mexican village from bandits, [[TheMagnificentSevenSamurai Magnificent Seven-style]] -- the villagers don't realize they're just actors, and the Amigos [[RealityEnsues don't realize it's for real]] until it's nearly too late. HilarityEnsues.

* JokeAndReceive: During the attempt to infiltrate El Guapo's hideout, Ned Nederlander (one of the Amigos) swings on a rope and ends up getting caught on a pinata high above the compound. Later on, after El Guapo captures the other two Amigos, he says "What is happening around here today? Are gringos falling from the skies?" Ned lets go and falls onto a nearby table. Jefe (El Guapo's TheDragon) says "Yes, El Guapo".

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Played for laughs. El Guapo boasts that he only kills men not crying women, which evokes a sigh of relief from our wimpy heroes.
