* XMeetsY: As one review on Website/ScrewAttack aptly put it, ''Wild Guns'' is basically "TrueGrit with [[MoreDakka automatic weapons]]" [[note]]The TrueGrit analogy [[SurprisinglySimilarStories makes even more sense when you survey the basic story points]]: that a girl (Mattie/Annie) gets help from an experienced gunslinger (Rooster/Clint), to get revenge on a gang that wronged her family (Mattie's father being murdered/Annie's family farm being attacked)[[/note]].

* AirborneMook: There are mooks with hang gliders. Also, many hovering robotic drones appear throughout the levels.

to:

* {{Acrofatic}}: Doris has the fastest dodge speed of all of the characters, being able to speed across the stage with ease. Downplayed in that she has some sort of rocket skates on, but she's still able to jump as well as Clint and Annie.
* AirborneMook: There are mooks with hang gliders. Also, many hovering robotic drones appear throughout the levels. The second game also has an entire stage set in the air.

* BrawnHilda: Reloaded ''Reloaded'' adds Doris, who is simultaneously [[AmazonianBeauty very muscular]] and [[FatGirl very fat]].fat]].
* CanineCompanion: ''Reloaded'' also adds Bullet, a small dog with a robotic drone companion.



* DamnYouMuscleMemory: Doris and Bullet play differently enough compared to Clint and Annie, and even between ''each other'', that players will probably be exclaiming this repeatedly while playing ''Reloaded''. Specifically, Bullet can move freely while firing while every other character stays in place, increasing his risk of just running into danger, but his drone hits a wide area and homes in on targets in that area, meaning he doesn't need to move his targeting reticle as much. Meanwhile, Doris doesn't even use guns, she uses grenades (exclusively, so no power ups), which are powerful but slow. Plus her "dodge" has no invincibility frames, meaning she has to actively avoid everything all the others can dodge through. These characteristics make her the hardest character to master, [[DifficultButAwesome but if you do...]]



* DepthPerplexion: Seen particularly in the battle against Flash Boy (the jetpack sub-boss of the Armored Train stage). The dynamite you pick up from Flash Boy is able to affect him as well as the horse-riding Mooks who are ''much'' further behind.

* DepthPerplexion: Seen particularly in the battle against Flash Boy (the jetpack sub-boss of the Armored Train stage). The dynamite you pick up from Flash Boy is able to affect him as well as the horse-riding Mooks who are ''much'' further behind. Doris's main method of attack being hurling grenades only adds to this.



* DifficultButAwesome: Both of the heroes added to ''Reloaded'' have shades of this due to playing a bit differently than Clint and Annie (see DamnYouMuscleMemory above), but Doris falls into this especially. Her grenades are her primary weapon, can't be auto-fired, and prevent her from using other weapons. Her dodge is a side-step that lacks invincibility, so she has to actually dodge everything the others can just roll through, but it's fast enough that the mobility nearly makes up for the lack of invulnerability. Additionally, her 'nades can be charged, and to make up for the lack of alternate weaponry, Doris gets a bonus multiplier added to every kill based on the number of grenades she finished off the target with. Add that to wide-ranged lassos, and this means she's quite possibly the best character to rack up score with in ''Reloaded''.



* ExclusiveEnemyEquipment: Dynamite, which can be picked up off the ground and thrown back at enemies. Not so much in the remake, where it's Doris' thing.
* {{Expy}}: Clint, [[WebVideo/TheHappyVideoGameNerd a man as dangerous as he is unshaven]], is obviously based on Creator/ClintEastwood's various western characters, most likely The Man With No Name from the ''Film/DollarsTrilogy''. Annie is likely based on the real life female sharpshooter Annie Oakley.
