It still counts, since they each wear a signature color.
* ColorCodedMultiplayer: An aversion, since even though the characters have different colors, the sprites are not identical.

* 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. ** With the other characters though, he'll just throw it away.

* 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.

* OneHitPointWonder: Played straight mostly. Averted in the Genesis version's versus mode where players have a LifeMeter.

* ReformulatedGame: The Genesis version is missing Steve and Bob, and only four of the arcade version's bosses are included. However, the stages are completely redesigned and are now divided into two segments, while the bonus rounds are different as well, so it's not a complete loss. * RidingIntoTheSunset: The end image, unsurprisingly enough.
