* HilariousInHindsight: Daniel Day-Lewis played Abraham Lincoln in ''Film/{{Lincoln}}''. Extremely hilarious when you think about Bill the Butcher shouting "Down with the Union!" during a performance of ''[[UncleTomsCabin Uncle Tom's Cabin]]'' and throwing a knife through a picture of Lincoln earlier in the film. Made even funnier with the fact Day-Lewis was nominated for Best Actor Oscars for both roles and won with Lincoln instead of Gangs.

* AntiClimaxBoss: Though the scene itself is climactic to all hell, Bill and Amsterdam trade a little more than a few swipes, then get thrown on their asses by cannon fire. It's ultimately a piece of rebar to the gut that does Bill in, with Amsterdam helping along.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Bill Cutting. Not that anyone else in the movie is a good person, but for some reason Bill gets lionized above others due to his {{Badass}} factor.

** The plot of the movie could easily be described as ''Film/KillBill''.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Amsterdam looks out across the lake where there are people dancing in front of a fire. The scene shifts immediately after. [[FlatWhat What?]]

** In the fight at the beginning of the film, Hell-cat Maggie somehow manages to leap high enough into the air that she can swoop down on an unsuspecting enemy and bite his ear off. One thinks of BatmanArkhamAsylum.

** The whole anachronistic soundtrack is amazing for the blend of differnet music. Creator/PeterGabriel's "Signal to Noise" scores the opening fight, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuzmTfj4cJA "Vows" by Brian Dunning]] which plays over the finale. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDar1ymGbjg "Shimmy She Wobble"]], by Othar Turner's Fife and Drum Blues which is the general fight music, there's also "Dark Moon, High Tide" by the Afro-Celt Sound System.

** And of course the few folk songs thrown in, "My friend Hattie, New York Girls" and especially "Paddy's Lamentation" which plays over the EpicTrackingShot showing immigrant arriving and force-enlisted into the army.
