** Elle herself felt that Buck gave Beatrix an unworthy death, so she was invoking KarmicDeath upon him, as Beatrix's old codename was, you guessed it, Black Mamba.

** Reading the script (which offers a deeper relationship between The Bride and Bill), she does it to give Bill a decent and honorable death. He was completely ready to die (as he says to the Bride: "You will defeat. And I want you to defeat me. But I just cant' give it to you that easily), and he chose to stand up (in the movie, in the script he dies standing on a beach) and die.

* Why of all the possible ways to kill Budd did ellie use a Black Mamba? Bill as far as we have seen, is not a moron, he knows that Kiddo would stick Budd with her sword, or some other "face your' enemy" type attack, Ellie should know this, and if it wasn't for Kiddo busting in, she would of went back to Bill and he would of promptly killed her in the most torturous way possible, she had Kiddos' sword, she could of easily killed him with that brought it back saying kiddo had killed Budd and said Kiddo did it, or something else, like she had just got the sword off of Budd and Kiddo must of gotten out of the grave and killed Budd with his own sword (which would be found in the trailer)

*** It isn't an admirable thing to say, and it isn't meant to be. Bill isn't saying, "You broke my heart, therefore you deserved this," he's saying, "When you break the heart of a murdering bastard, he's going to react by doing some murdering." He's not saying he's ''right'' for doing it, he's stating the simple fact that a murdering bastard tends to react to things that piss him off by murdering.

***Additionally, it's very possible that Elle changed her mind during the ensuing 4 (5?) years.

** It's been a long time since I've watched that sequence, but I believe the evidence is that the animated character has a ring very similar to the one Bill wears. As for why; well, I'm about to go into some wild mass guessing speculating on her thoughts, motivations, and rational, but consider the following. As you said, she was hellbent on revenge towards Matsumoto. He ordered it, he's responsible. Bill was just the weapon used. It's also possible, maybe even probable, that seeing Bill's skill is what inspired her towards violent means in the first place. And, assuming for a moment that Matsumoto was Bill's primary employer at the time, Bill was likely the first person to find O Ren after she was done killing him and his goons. He's now out of a job and she's demonstrated a considerable talent for violence at a young age, and she knows how good at killing he is. Imagine her reaction to him offering to train her, to give her the same kind of skills he has, the same power he has, power over life and death. Power she's seen for herself. For a little girl who knows what it's like to feel helpless, and who likely never wants to feel helpless again, that's a tempting offer. I'm also not sure I agree with the apparent fan theory that Bill had relationships with all the women in the DiVAS - he's technically only confirmed to have had a relationship with the Bride; a relationship with Elle is only strongly hinted at in the film. I don't see any evidence that he slept with O Ren or Vernita, but like I said, it's been a while since I've seen vol. 1.

** Vernita was a knife-fighter, not a swordsman like the rest of the squad was. Beatrix challenged(or attempted to, in the case of Budd) each member with her "unfinished business" catchphrase and defeated them(except for, again, Budd) in their own element. It makes more than enough sense that Beatrix wanted to give Vernita a fighting chance(as she did everyone else) to defend themselves. And what better way to get your revenge on the KnifeNut of the group than to beat her at her own game?

* I see some people saying that in the animated sequence of O Ren's backstory, the guy in a white suit who killed her dad was Bill. Has this been stated by WordOfGod somewhere? Why on earth would O Ren work for and apparently even have a ''relationship'' with the guy who killed her dad? Especially when she was hellbent on revenge towards Matsumoto, the guy who gave the order and then killed her mom?
