to:

* DoorJudo: Sets up Bugs' FinishingMove. At the last moment, Bugs opens the gates and Toro charges out of the ring and to the outskirts of town. While he realizes what happened and charges back, Bugs sets up his final trap.



* RubeGoldbergDevice: How Bugs finishes off Toro. First he has Toro slip on grease at full speed and off a ramp. Toro then flies over a brush full of glue, then a sheet of sandpaper that is now glued to his belly. The sandpaper next ignites a match, which lights a fuse that outruns Toro and reaches a pile of explosives that explodes just as Toro comes flying by. Finally, he crashes into the fence, with Bugs pulling a "The End" curtain over his butt for the IrisOut.

* BrutishBulls: Toro the huge black bull takes downright sadistic pleasure in fighting and charging opponents. While doing this with the toreador he charges down at the beginning of the short is potentially understandable, his unprovoked attack on Bugs seems motivated entirely by petty malice. Throughout the short, Toro relies on straightforward attacks and powerful charges (and a shotgun after he accidentally swallows it), and is at the end easily outwitted by the clever Bugs.

* BrutishBulls: Toro the huge black bull takes downright sadistic pleasure in fighting and charging opponents. While doing this and headbutting his opponents, even using a grindstone to make sure his horns are particularly sharp, and setting off his conflict with the toreador he charges down at the beginning of the short is potentially understandable, his unprovoked attack on Bugs seems motivated entirely by petty malice. Throughout the short, Toro relies on straightforward attacks and powerful charges (and a shotgun after thanks to DisproportionateRetribution. Although as noted elsewhere he accidentally swallows it), and is also manages to subvert expectations at the end easily outwitted by the clever Bugs.a couple of points, at least in regards to his intellect.

* {{Bowdlerization}}: Both CBS and ABC censored the climactic scene of Toro sliding up a greased ramp and, as he flies through the air, having a run-in with an explosive, the detonation of which is caused by Toro getting hit first by a bit of glue and then some sandpaper, which strikes a strategically-placed match, which lights the explosive's fuse. ABC would only show Toro sliding up the ramp and crashing into the fence, but CBS was slightly more careless: it would also show Toro being hit with the glue and sandpaper, as well as his dazed look caused by the unseen explosion.
