YMMV: Shane
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: One of the few good westerns to use the Black Hat White Hat Trope straight.
    • Strictly speaking, Shane's hat is gray, appropriate to his moral ambiguity.
  • The Hero Dies: As noted on the main page, the question of whether this trope is played straight or subverted remains a topic of debate.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Shane! Come back, Shane!"
  • One-Scene Wonder: Jack Palance's role as Wilson is both brief enough, and unforgettable enough to qualify as this.
  • Tearjerker: "Shane, Come Back!!"
