The armadillo at the beginning. Cut in half and yet it lives!lives!
** Rattlesnake Jake effectively combines both this and Awesome:
--> '''Ms. Beans:''' Go to hell!
--> '''Jake:''' Where do you think I ''come'' from? Look into my eyes. I wanna ''see'' you die.

* MoralGuardians: They've bashed the film due to characters smoking. [[http://www.usatoday.com/yourlife/health/2011-03-08-rango08_ST_N.htm No, really.]] Thus saving viewers from the moral decay of ''smoking cartoon animals in the Old West.''

* FoeYay / NoYay: Jake's behaviour towards Beans. In his first appearance, Jake almost strangles her and [[LecherousLicking licks]] her face. And in another scene, he almost strangles her again.
* HarsherInHindsight: This was ILM's first animated release, and it was both successful commercially and competitive enough to win an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward. It looks like it will also be ILM's last, as Disney bought Lucasfilm, which includes ILM, and is unlikely to give them a shot at doing more animated films in the future.

** The credits music, which sounds like a Western remix of [[Music/DickDale Misirlou]] is is exactly as awesome as that sounds.

* AnimationAgeGhetto: The one star reviews on Amazon.com are full of parents complaining about this PG rated film being not suitable for children.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: At one point when the characters are traveling underground a giant eye opens and watches them walk away. One character remarks, "That's a big one," but nobody else even notices it. It's never explained and never appears in the movie again.
** There's also the dance when the town goes to get water after the bell rings. Granted, we are informed that getting water on Wednesday is a regular ritual - the dance itself, though, comes out of nowhere and it's never explained what it has to do with anything.
* CreepyAwesome: Rattlesnake Jake, especially when he first shows up.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: What's [[AwesomeMoments more awesome]] than a chase scene involving [[FurryConfusion critters riding bats like fighter planes]] in pursuit our heroes? Doing so to a Western-style version of "Ride of the Valkyries".
** Playing "Ride of the Valkyries" during an aerial assault scene? [[StandardSnippet Meh.]] Playing "Ride of the Valkyries" during an aerial assault scene ''on banjos''? Hilarious.
** The 'final showdown' music in which Rango recovers his discarded sheriff's badge from Boot Hill is chilling and inspiring - as well as a spot-on homage to Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly.
* EnsembleDarkHorse: Dare say Rattlesnake Jake is starting to look like this?
** Priscilla, the little possum girl, could easily count as one too.

** In this movie, [[JohnnyDepp Johnny Depp]] plays a gunslinger who has a competent Native-American sidekick. [[Film/{{TheLoneRanger}} Seems the tables have turned]]. And by the same director, no less.
* InferredHolocaust: [[spoiler: Las Vegas is going to notice if one of their water mains is broken. Dirt's water troubles are not over.]]
** Though [[spoiler: Las Vegas didn't care when the Mayors goons turned off the water]], I think that they just don't notice the water loss [[spoiler: after all they got so much more.]]

* {{Squick}}: When the posse members are talking around the campfire, and Spoons reveals a little too much information.
** Also sort of a [[FunnyBackgroundEvent Gross Background Event]], but during that scene, we see Elgin, the black cat-thing, wring out his socks... into his cup.
*** FridgeBrilliance: they're running out of water. Waste not.
* TearJerker: "Who am I? I'm nobody."

* UglyCute: Rango is basically a photorealistic anthropomorphic chameleon, but with that little Hawaiian shirt he's sporting and his constant freakouts, how can you not love him?
** Real life chameleons are not ''that'' ugly.
