*** Actually, this strikes this troper as a fair bit of FridgeBrilliance. Both characters are polyglots, both are refined, and both of them are notorious for turning nearly ''any'' situation to their advantage. Also, Landa seems to share some of his theoretical grandfather's attitudes on blacks to a degree. When discussing Marcel, Shoshanna's black assistant (and unbeknownst to him, boyfriend) he remarks that "while he's a capable negro" he shan't work the premiere. Most Germans featured in InglouriousBasterds would've been far more racist and dismissive.

** Perhaps the aborted plans with the masked tracker could have been a final, last-minute confrontation between her and Broomhilda (thus completing the whole hero/villain ShadowArchetype theme). That would've been awesome and revealed Broomhilda's awesomeness (her namesake was a mighty Valkyrie, after all). The masked tracker would be a cool, frightening, axe-weilding, AxCrazy type (complete with the RedRightHand of the missing lower-jaw, revealed in a shocking unmasking). Maybe someone can write this as a fanfic, "DJANGO UNCHAINED: The Lost Chapter".

* And Robert's legend of Catcher Freeman was based on Django.

* And Robert's legend of Catcher Freeman was based on Django. Django. Just watch "The Story of Catcher Freeman", and see how oddly similar it is to ''Django Unchained''!

[[WMG:Django Unchained is set in the same universe as TheBoondocks.]] And Stephen is Ruckus's ancestor. ** Impossible. Ruckus is 50.7% white and suffering from the heartbreak of Revitiligo. See, that's a skin condition that's the opposite of what Michael Jackson had.

Both of these guys have similar voices and accents, have the same style of mustache, and also wear fine hats.

Throughout the film, women are seen as passive characters. Broomhilda is a typical DamselinDistress,Lara is a SouthernBelle who does practically nothing and one of Candie's trackers is quite clearly a woman, but has her face covered, wears masculine clothes and never speaks a word of dialogue. At the end of the film, Broomhilda seems to have gained an active status similar to her husband, wearing masculine clothes but not covering her face, wielding a gun and riding off for more adventures. I believe that Tarantino is subtly suggesting that the suppression of race also leads to the suppression of women, and they are just as awful and dehumanising as each other. Considering QT's penchant for the ActionGirl trope and other such strong, female charcters, I feel this is quite likely.

* Easy HandWave for the last name discrepancy: In the film's aftermath, Django and Broomhilda turn out ''not'' to share OneTrueLove, but they don't split until after Broomhilda bears a child. Broomhilda keeps (or reverts to) her maiden name, the child stays with its mother, and Django's child keeps the Von Shaft name alive.

** Jossed. Schultz actually shoots Candie because he finds him utterly loathsome, especially after using his dogs to tear D'Artagnan aprt. As it was, Candie ''was'' going to let Django, Schultz and Brunhilde leave, and is demanding the handshake from Schultz to basically dominate the proceedings and seal some kind of victory after 'finding out' that Django and Schultz weren't slavers. As it was, if he wasn't so adamant in demanding the handshake, he wouldn't have been shot. But Schultz fired his gun, and, [[Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy well, it escalated pretty quickly]].
