* HostageSituation: Right after defeating Dark Horse, a girl is [[GetOut thrown out]] of the saloon right behind and she tells the team that the Smith Brothers and their goons have taken over, keeping three other dancers as hostages. Then, the fourth stage begins.



* ItWasAGift: In the arcade version, El Greco gives his [[NiceHat red sombrero]] to Cormano upon defeat. Cormano wears this hat for the rest of the game.

* MadBomber: The Smith Brothers. One of them has enough sense to talk, but the other is completely AxeCrazy. Their boss fight (the only one without a preceding stage) could be dangerous to play if you're epileptic.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Two in particular. ''VideoGame/MysticWarriors'' was made by the same team and even features a [[TheCameo cameo]] by Steve, while Konami's arcade game version of ''WildWestCOWBoysOfMooMesa'' is a very similar western-themed side-scroller. The game also acts as a spiritual successor to Konami's earlier western-themed shooter ''Iron Horse''.

A side-scrolling ShootEmUp released for the arcades in 1991, ''Sunset Riders'' is one of several four-player arcade games that {{Konami}} released in the wake of their success with ''VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTheArcadeGame''. The game centers around four [[BountyHunter bounty hunters]] (Steve, Bob, Billy, and Cormano) who must hunt down various fugitives during the WildWest to collect monetary rewards. Essentially a [[RecycledInSpace Wild West-themed]] version of ''{{Contra}}'', as its director Hideyuki Tsujimoto worked on both arcade ''Contra'' games.
