* On that note, the Marshal with whom Django and Shultz spend the winter deserves a mention. He'd have to be blind to not notice Django is black (and he obviously isn't) but, like every other white man in the film barring Schultz, does he so much as bat an eye at Django riding a horse, carrying a gun, or killing white folk? [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Nope.]] When he and Schultz return with some fresh bounties, all he does in greet them both warmly and invite them in for some hot coffee and some leftover birthday cake (which he himself calls 'pretty good').

** Crowning Music of Heartwarming, the song ''I Got A Name'' by Jim Croce, playing during the friendship montage of Django and Schultz.


* Right at the end, Django has a flashback to Schultz telling him that he's going to be "the fastest gun in the south". This is heartwarming for two reasons; one, it shows just how much respect and hope Schultz has for Django, since he's basically admitted (without any rancour at at all,) that Django is better than him. Two, it means that [[spoiler: the last image we have of Schultz is the fatherly mentor, rather than the pathetic, huddled corpse that had just been tossed aside in a shed with its face turned to the wall]].

Added DiffLines:

** They call each other Little Troublemaker and Big Troublemaker. The nicknames aren't explained or in any way elaborated upon, but their mere ''existence'' suggests the depth of the connection between the two.


** Especially when Django is simply marveled that a white man like Schultz is treating him as an equal.

* Excluding Schultz's friendship with Django and Broomhilda, the scene at the beginning where Schultz treats the other slaves he has no personal interest just as well as Django. He politely thanks one for raising the lantern to help him write, treats them as credible witnesses in a time where the word of a black man would count for nothing, and frees them when he leaves with Django. Just to show not every white man in that movie was a racist bastard.

* Whenever Django did a first as a free man and the innocent look on his face was adorable, and this troper is a straight man. for example when he had a drink of his first beer, or when he got to pick out his own clothes and when he learned to read.

Added DiffLines:

*** A nice touch in this scene is that he has dressed down for her arrival to fool the other Candielanders into thinking that she's there for his pleasure, but the second they're alone, he begins re-dressing, even apologising that he's misplaced his tie, just to make sure she's aware he doesn't want...that.


* Franco Nero's cameo. If you didn't already think this thing was a love letter to Westerns, that sealed it.

* Even though he's a racist prick who was there to help kill Schultz and Django, it was kind of nice to see that one proto-KKK member getting pissed at the other members for badmouthing his wife's hard work on their hoods [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere and storming off in a huff.]] EvenEvilHasLovedOnes.

* The smile on that one slave's face after Django kills the mine's slave drivers and rides back towards Candieland. It's just such a contrast to the sullen DeathGlare he gave Django earlier when he believed he was just another slaver. You can see Django's earned his respect.
