YMMV: A Fistful of Dollars
  • Complete Monster: Ramon Rojo just seems to enjoy being evil. In his first appearance, he and his gang brutally massacre a Mexican army unit to steal their gold. He kidnaps a woman and forces her to live with him, claiming that her husband was cheating him at cards. He slaughters the rival Baxter family as they try to surrender to him, tortures Joe for helping the woman he kidnapped escape, and, towards the end, has Silvanito tortured when he thinks he might be hiding Joe and is about to hang him when Joe interrupts. That's in addition to being an Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy regarding his skill with the rifle, an extreme Jerkass in his interactions with everybody, and the brains of a gang of illegal rum-runners who keeps a stranglehold on the life of a small town.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: "My mistake... Four coffins."
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Do the words Ennio Morricone mean anything to you?
  • Memetic Mutation: The Man With No Name's Poncho, Hat and Cigar.
  • Narm: The little boy's whining and crying may come off being more obnoxious in the English language dub due to the poor quality of the English actor (or actress) dubbing the kid.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Ramon Rojo (the Big Bad) is unquestionably evil, not only prevails this territory when he forces (and tries to rape) a woman to live with him and threatens to kill her young son if she is not given, his most monstrous moment was having massacred the entire Baxter family, including the matriarch, and Ramon just laughs killing every family member, as do his thugs.
  • What an Idiot: Ramon and his men freak out over Joe's apparent inability to die when Ramon shoots him repeatedly with his rifle, yet it never occurs to Ramon to try shooting Joe in the head, nor does it occur to him or his men to just open fire indiscriminately when Joe reveals he was wearing a crude bullet proof vest the whole time.
