* TearJerker:
** The death of each of the magnificent seven.
** Harry's was one of the worst. He initially abandons the team fearing the odds are against them. He comes rushing in and saves Chris, [[spoiler: then gets shot for his troubles]].
--> '''Harry''': I'll be damned. (dies)
--> '''Chris''': Maybe you won't be.
** Poor O'Reilly, [[spoiler: ends up getting him killed protecting his InstantFanClub instead of concentrating on the fight]]. And the poor kids get a front row seat.
--> '''Village Boy''': We didn't mean to do it! We didn't mean to do it!
** Poor Lee, while little of his personality is explored. [[spoiler: His dying after getting his nerve back and saving a lot of lives in the climactic battle and ends with him killed right afterward. His rescue led to the villagers taking part in the final battle]].
** Britt, it's not so much his death (though that's still hard to watch). It's when Chris finds his knife after the battles over. He picks it up, then gets a mournful look on his face.
** Surprisingly, Calvera's death, which, in a role reversal, somewhat mirrors [[spoiler: Kikuchiyo's]]. His shock and confusion after being shot by Chris makes you feel a little sorry for him.
-->'''Calvera''': [[EvilCannotComprehendGood You came back...for a place like this...why? A man like you, why...?]]

* AwesomeMusic: Music/ElmerBernstein's score, particularly the unforgettable [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iteRKvRKFA main title theme]].
** Eli Wallach (who portrayed the bandit leader Calvera) once remarked that if he'd have heard Elmer's music during filming, he'd have ridden his horse better.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Plenty of them.
** Britt's introduction. Also Chris and Vin's, though Britt's is even more awesome.
** The entire first confrontation with Calvera and his men. It's also one of the most quotable scene in the film ("We deal in lead, friend" amongst them).
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: This exchange, taking place just after Britt has shot dead one of the bandits who was fleeing on horseback:
-->'''Chico:''' ''[awed]'' That was the greatest shot I've ever seen!
-->'''Britt:''' ''[sternly]'' The worst! I was aiming at the ''horse''.
** Chico then proceeds to give him a friendly Oh-don't-be-so-hard-on-yourself expression.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: This score ''is'' the one you know Music/ElmerBernstein for. And for good reason.

* FountainOfMemes: There are many [[MemeticMutation memetic lines]] from the film, and many of them occur in a five-minute sequence during the first confrontation between Calvera's bandits and the Seven. Outside of that part, there's Britt's famous "I was aiming for the horse!" and Lee's "Enemies: None. ... ''alive.''" speech.

* StopHelpingMe: Bernardo's Instant Fanclub follows him everywhere and tries to help him in any way; [[spoiler: they get him killed in the final battle when they distract him during a gunfight]].
** Earlier, Calvera is talking to Sotero about how they tried to rob a church, only to find nothing worth taking. A bandit watching nearby helpfully adds that they took what was there anyway. Calvera doesn't appreciate the remark very well.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Deconstruction}}: Lee, of the gunslinger archetype. His sharp eye, fast hands, and take-no-crap attitude has given him... a life of jumping at every shadow for fear of the next person to try to take his title, and sleeping in stables because inn-keepers are afraid their place will be shot up because of him.

* SurprisinglySimilarCharacters: Lee and Kikuchiyo are polar opposites in personality yet have a surprising number of things in common. Both are somewhat mysterious and have done something, or do something that they regret and are in or go through a HeroicBSOD during the film; Lee has made so many enemies that he can barely show his face, while Kikuchiyo's jealousy of Kyuzo leads to abandoning his contingent of farmers, [[spoiler: leading to Yohei's and Gorobei's deaths]]. Both suffer a RedemptionEqualsDeath in the FinalBattle whilst rescuing a group of farmers held up by bandits in a farmhouse.

* LoveToHate: Calvera. He's ruthless and cruel, but he's so much fun to watch!
