*Rattlesnake Jake shooting up the sheriff sign immediately after [[TemptingFate Rango becomes the sheriff while saying that they have hope as long the sign still hangs.]] [[spoiler: While it is a bleak moment since this is the moment where Jake exposes Rango as the fraud he is, notice that the sign ''is still hanging on'' after being shot. It's an indicator that the day can still be saved even in the darkest hour. Sure enough, it does.]]


** Not to mention the mayor is a turtle, and they can live up to 100 years, so his words hold some merit.

* The SuperPersistentPredator trope makes a lot of sense if you consider Metalbeak not as a random desert predator, but specifically posted to keep outsiders from reaching the town, and keep the townspeople confused and afraid. ''Someone'' gave her the beak-blade. Highly likely seeing as the hawk was "the only thing keeping Rattlesnake Jake away" from Dirt. The Mayor would need to stop Jake from interfering in his own plans until he needed him. Certainly the YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness scene implies the Mayor was worried Jake would turn against him at a future point, and decided to get rid of his scaly partner while he was vulnerable.


* During the extended ending, Beans tells Rango that she put lotion in his saddlebag. He then "clarifies" that it is [[StealthPun gun lotion.]] Much like another cosmetics product related to guns: ''gun powder.''

* After Rango meets The Spirit of the West, Roadkill mentions that "we see what we need to see" in reference to the spirit. Rango needed to be a tough guy, so who better to take advice on playing a tough guy in a western setting than [[spoiler: ClintEastwood?!]].

* On Wounded Bird's changing English skills: When we first meet him, he speaks in broken English. But throughout the movie it gets progressively better. The movie may take place over a course of a few days, but that is far more time to lizards and birds and small mammals, who have shorter life spans than humans. One week would be a short time to ask a human to become fluent in English, but for a bird it may be plenty of time.

* [[spoiler:Right up until the Mayor calls him in to deal with Rango, Jake has been built up as this great hero-killer - "never leaves without taking a bloomin' soul." In that confrontation, he does by exposing Rango's lies and forcing him to prove his 'one bullet' story, essentially killing the larger-than-life persona he'd built up at the start of the movie. Rango even drops the sherrif badge in the graveyard, and gets it back once he realizes that he still is a hero.]]
