* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
** Starts at the camp scene and ends with the death of the Invisible Swordsman.
** Also the "Blue Shadows" musical number sang to Ned so he won't be afraid of the desert while their horses sing back up vocals and at the end of the song a turtle says "Good night Ned". For a while the movie seems to be confused as to whether it should have a realistic setting or something out of a Zucker Brothers movie.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: RandyNewman's three songs are incredibly hilarious and somewhat touching, specifically "Blue Shadows".
* EarWorm: The title theme.
* GeniusBonus: After Jefe assures El Guapo that they have enough piņatas, El Guapo asks if they have a "plethora" of piņatas. Jefe agrees, despite not knowing what a "plethora" is, which enrages El Guapo. Most people assume "plethora" simply means "a lot", and El Guapo is being a jerk to Jefe by needlessly using a fancy word and then putting Jefe down for not knowing what it means. "Plethora" really means "too many," so El Guapo is really asking, in response to Jefe saying they have a ton of piņatas, whether they have an unreasonable amount. When Jefe ''happily'' says that yes, they do, El Guapo realizes Jefe is just being a yes man.
** Then again, when Jefe accuses El Guapo of wanting to be upset at him just because he's fuming about Carmen, El Guapo seems to agree, so maybe he was just being a jerk to Jefe.
* MagnificentBastard: El Guapo.
* MemeticMutation: The "plethora" conversation.
* WhatAnIdiot: Dusty.
