* QuickDraw: Mostly subverted; the ones who draw and start blazing away without taking time to properly aim end up dead while a slower, but more accurate, gunfighter shoots them. {{Lampshaded}} by Little Bill when he's talking to the writer.
-->'''Little Bill:''' Look here. ''*draws quickly but not overly fast*'' That's about as fast as I can draw and aim and hit anything more than ten feet away. Unless it's a barn.

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Subverted with Little Bill. He has a reputation as a BadAss who "worked them tough towns" in Kansas and Texas according to his deputies (including the notorious Abilene, according to Beauchamp), and he has the measure of "dangerous men" as he demonstrates dealing with English Bob and as he recounts to Beauchamp. English Bob has an OhCrap moment when he first sees Little Bill, and not just because there are four guns pointed at him. At the same time, the only violence he manages in the entire movie is [[spoiler: brutal beatdowns on men already at gunpoint or restrained, and the only time he manages to get a shot off, he's already on the floor shot and Munny handily deflects his gun away by stepping on his arm.]]

* TheDreaded: Munny, when his past days as a thief and murderer come out. The Schofield Kid in their first scene describes Munny's reputation as "the meanest goddamn son of a bitch alive." Later, when Little Sue (the prostitute who delivers the bounty) describes what Ned said about him that dynamiting a train full of women and children wasn't even the ''worst'' he'd done her quavering voice, and the look the Kid gives Will, say it all.
