* RuleOfSymbolism: Both the priest in the beginning speaking [[BilingualBonus untranslated Spanish]] at Johnny Ringo before being shot, and Wyatt's quote at the top of the page reference the Biblical Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. [[note:]] Revelation 6:1-8 "And I looked, and beheld a pale horse, and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. [[/note]] Guess [[FourIsDeath how many]] lawmen go to confront the Cowboys at the OK Corral?

** In addition, the fourth lawman (Doc) is the only one that's not an Earp brother, and his tuberculosis makes him notably the palest of the three. [[spoiler: Guess who goes to confront Johnny Ringo at the end?]]

** When Wyatt is dragging Curly Bill into custody while surrounded by the Cowboys, Ike Clanton approaches him while threatening that "we'll tear you apart." He gets too close and Wyatt puts the gun to his forehead. Ike's expression goes from "macho bravado" to "loosened bowels" in ''milliseconds''.

*** Though he's only known for certain to have committed one murder, he was at least connected to numerous others. He is known to have shot an unarmed man's ear off in a bar [[FelonyMisdemeanor because the victim politely refused Ringo's offer to buy him a shot of whiskey, saying he preferred beer]]. He's also known to have had a very antagonistic relationship with the Earps and especially Holliday. How fair Michael Biehn's [[AxeCrazy awesome portrayal]] is will probably never be known, because all primary sources regarding his character were either [[UnreliableNarrator his close friends or his mortal enemies]].

** Though he laughs about it immediately afterwards, Curly Bill is visibly shocked when Johnny Ringo shoots the Mexican priest at the beginning. He also repeatedly tells Ringo to cool down and--[[NotSoDifferent parallel with Earp]]--tries to maintain what passes for peace in the town.

In addition, Curly Bill's shooting of marshal Fred White is a [[AccidentalMurder complete accident]] while high off his ass on opium, and can be heard begging "C'mon, Fred, get up!" in a horrified tone of voice.



There's also the memorably funny/badass scene where Johnny Ringo tries to intimidate Holliday with some admittedly impressive GunTwirling tricks...which Holliday then mocks him for by recreating with spins of his ''[[TheAlcoholic drinking cup.]]''

* EvilCounterpart: Johnny Ringo, to Doc Holliday. Both well-educated men, both death-dealers (and in their own ways, death-seekers). Ringo is TheDragon to Curly Bill, with Doc TheLancer to Wyatt.

Also Curly Bill to Wyatt - both being the leaders of their respective gangs. Amplified by the fact that [[spoiler: Wyatt kills Curly and Doc kills Johnny.]]

* BadassMoustache: Just about everybody in the movie, especially the Earps. Especially in RealLife.
