Added DiffLines:

* TheSevenWesternPlots: A hybrid of the Ranch story and Marshal story. Rancher Dan Evans is struggling financially due to a three-year drought. So when the local sheriff offers a $200 reward to anyone who'll help transport the recently arrested outlaw Ben Wade to the prison train, Evans jumps at the opportunity.

Added DiffLines:

* HappyRain: At the end.


* TheDragon: Charlie Prince, Wade's sidekick, who is the man sleeping on the hotel couch, and the man who leads the gang back into town to free Wade.

* IOweYouMyLife: Evans, through sheer bravery and some lucky breaks--once passing by with a herd of cattle, once using a horse for a shield--makes it to the train station alive, with Wade. But Wade's gang finally corners him at the train tracks. As the train starts to pull away, Charlie Prince tells Wade to duck, so they can shoot Evans and free him. Instead Wade tells Evans to get on the train with him, and they both jump into a baggage car. As the train pulls away a shocked Evans asks Wade why. WorthyOpponent is clearly a factor here, but Wade also says that he saved Evans' life because Evans saved Wade's life when Ben Moons barged into the hotel room and tried to kill him. (Also, Wade remains confident that the gang will liberate him at some later date.)

Added DiffLines:

* SympathyForTheHero: Wade feels increasingly sympathetic to Evans, noting he's just a normal guy who works hard for little reward and risks his life and sticks his neck out long after others would quit. His sympathy for Evans, ultimately leads him to co-operate with his arrest and take the train ride to Yuma.

Added DiffLines:

* BeingGoodSucks: Wade voices this opinion throughout the film. Noting that Evans works so hard for so little, barely able to provide for his family and forced to become a hero for only a meager increase in profit. Evans seems to agree that being good isn't necessarily rewarding, but he'll be good anyway.

While driving his remaining cattle back to his ranch, along with his sons, Dan encounters a stagecoach, and a gang of bandits led by notorious outlaw Ben Wade (Ford). Wade lets Evans and his boys go but does kill the stagecoach driver and abscond with the gold on the stagecoach. The gang rides to Bisbee, but Wade is captured when he lingers in the town to enjoy a roll in the hay with a barmaid. When a $200 reward is offered to whoever will take Wade onto the eponymous train to Yuma, Evans volunteers--but Wade's men are on the way back to free their leader.

Added DiffLines:

* DeterminedHomesteadersWife: Zig-zagged in the case of Dan's wife Alice. At the beginning she isn't determined at all, and this trope is clearly averted. Alice complains about how hard life has been and how much they've had to struggle and pesters Dan to get a loan which might help bail them out of trouble. Later, when Dan is about to go out on what seems likely to be a fatal march with Ben Wade, this trope is played more straight. Alice intercepts Dan, begging him to stop, telling him not to risk his life over anything she said the day before. She insists that she's loved their life, even with the hardships and struggles.
