|These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.|
- 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!!"
