* Hans Zimmer's music evokes Music/EnnioMorricone's work with Creator/SergioLeone... complete with reusing a Morriconian-like track from ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd''. You could also hear a very familiar [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUbAmR3sOBA riff]] from Music/ElmerBernstein's ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven''.

* The teaser poster calls to mind the poster for ''Literature/FearAndLoathingInLasVegas''. And the driver of one of the cars Rango hits towards the beginning is none other than the [[HunterSThompson Good Doctor]] himself. Complete with sidekick.

* WordOfGod states that Rango in general is meant to be a reference to Don Knotts in ''The Shakiest Gun in the West'', while the "only one bullet" references Knotts' most famous character, [[TheAndyGriffithShow Deputy Sheriff Barney Fife]]; the mayor's characterisation and EvilPlan heavily reference Creator/JohnHuston in ''Film/{{Chinatown}}'' (he even says "the future, Mr. Rango! The future!"); Rattlesnake Jake is an allusion to Lee Van Cleef in ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly''; and the hawk that attacks Rango towards the beginning is a reference to Lee Marvin in ''Film/CatBallou'', featuring the same metal piece on his nose. [[ReferenceOverdosed Whew]].
