* Creator/QuentinTarantino's ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' has a number of spaghetti western elements to it. ''Film/DjangoUnchained'' follows the genre a lot more closely, considering it actually ''is'' a [[TheWestern Western]]. Not to be outdone, ''Film/KillBill'' also has several shout-outs, including reusing a lot of music from this genre.

''Film/TheHatefulEight'', while very much '''not''' in the style of a Spaghetti Western, takes several important cues from the genre.

A sub-genre of the [[TheWestern Western]] films, so called because they were produced by Italian studios (and tended to feature quite a bit of gore). These movies were typically shot in Spain, since the Tabernas Desert looks similar to [[TheWildWest Hollywood's idea of the old west]]. Since Spanish extras were readily available, Spaghetti Westerns often featured [[FakeNationality "Mexican" characters]] and themes, often focusing on the Mexican Revolution, border problems, or [[{{Bandito}} Mexican banditos]]. There was a whole sub-genre dedicated to politically-oriented westerns about the Mexican Revolution called the Zapata Western.

* The 2011 film ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'' is practically a love letter to this genre of film, featuring numerous shout outs in its plot to films of days gone past, mimicking the cinematography typical of its genre and even [[spoiler:featuring a cameo an animated version of the Man With No Name as the "Spirit of the West"]].
