* ''Film/FlyingSwordsOfDragonGate'' is a Chinese {{Wuxia}} film staring JetLi that is openly infulenced by the melancholic and violent world of Sergio Leone; being set in the mournful and windswept deserts of ''Shing Jiang'' province really helps.

A sub-genre of TheWestern, 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.

Spaghetti Westerns were originally scorned for their low budgets, fading Hollywood stars, and [[DeconstructorFleet deconstruction of nearly every Western trope]]. However, the conventions found in Spaghetti Westerns later became staples of the genre and it was here that actor Creator/ClintEastwood launched his movie career.

Since Spanish extras were readily available, Spaghetti Westerns often featured [[FakeNationality [[{{Spexico}} "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.

Spaghetti Westerns were originally scorned for their low budgets, fading Hollywood stars, and [[DeconstructorFleet deconstruction of nearly every for its rougher and harder look at common Western trope]]. However, the conventions found tropes, albeit in Spaghetti general very few of these Westerns were especially political or informed about American history to be actual {{Deconstruction}}. Nonetheless, the greater violence, rougher and harder aesthetic, gave spaghetti westerns an integrity entirely at odds with the glossy and stagey Hollywood original and in time, the visual aesthetic of the spaghetti westerns later became staples of the genre genre. Most notably, the spaghetti Westerns provided the staging grounds for the last great icon of the Western genre: actor[=/=]director Creator/ClintEastwood, who was a TV and it was here that BMovie actor Creator/ClintEastwood launched in America before his appearance in Creator/SergioLeone's films made him into a major movie career.

** Point in fact, The Man With No Name played by Creator/ClintEastwood in said trilogy is the primary inspiration in appearance and attitude for Kujo Jotaro, the protagonist of Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders, the third part of the saga. Upon finding out this, Eastwood met and befriended Araki, becoming a fast fan of the Jojo Franchise.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', while not a direct inspiration, borrows heavily from the genre, especially the ''Film/DollarsTrilogy'': a lone warrior [[TheSilentBob of few words]], known [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname only by his nickname]], passes quietly through various places, defeats the bad guy and then moves along. Creator/PhilLamarr even described his voice for Jack as being a Japanese Creator/ClintEastwood.
