YMMV / Unforgiven

  • Fridge Brilliance: When Munny shoots Davey in the gut, Davey calls out that he's thirsty and pleads for a drink, and Munny promises not to shoot any of the others so that they can give Davey a drink. Drinking water can be fatal to gut-shot victims; Munny, who at this point had not reverted completely to his cold-blooded manner (that happens after Ned gets killed) must have felt a moment of pity the Munny of old, according to his reputation, surely wouldn't have.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: A guy named Ned gets offered One Last Job by an Old Friend and gets killed. Sounds like Game of Thrones.
  • Hollywood Homely: Delilah's scars aren't exactly pretty, but they don't exactly make her horrible either. And considering she is a small-town prostitute, it's not likely her customers would care much. In fact, she's still the prettiest of the girls. It's Lampshaded, though. This trope is invoked as part of the plot is that the other prostitutes exaggerate just how horribly Delilah was mutilated (they go so far as to claim her breasts were cut off), mostly because they can't actually afford what they are offering and hope the bounty hunters will be driven by enough righteous fury that they will take out their targets before they ask for their money. And also turned into a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming when Munny tells her that he declined her offer for a free advance on the bounty not because of her scars (of which he has his own, he tells her), but out of being faithful to his wife.
  • Lawful Evil: Sheriff William "Little Bill" Daggett. Sure, he's a lawman with the noble goal of cleaning up the town of Big Whiskey, but he's also a ruthless Knight Templar for whom the chance to dish out the occasional Cold-Blooded Torture, No-Holds-Barred Beatdown, or Vigilante Execution is among the biggest perks of the job.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Bill was no saint to begin with, but he crosses the line when he sent Ned to be tortured to death. Munny thinks he crossed it a long time ago, but in the film he remains at worst a pretty dark anti-hero.
  • Moe: Delilah. She's the cutest and most innocent of the prostitutes, and even her horrific injuries can't quite take that away. She also cries a lot.
  • The Woobie: Delilah. When William Munny is trying to tell her she's still beautiful with scars while not betraying his late wife, you just feel so much for both of them.
