The game's main character is simply called The Man With No Name who arrives at the town called The Town With No Name.
- And 99 Cents: Wildcard McVee has a bounty of US $4,999.95.
- Bar Slide: Happens when the player orders a beer from bartender.
- Camp Gay: Massive Jake, one of the villains, sounds like this.
- Defeat Means Friendship: When the gang leader gets defeated.
- The Dog Shot First: Inverted with Wildcard McVee: You shoot him while he's going on about taking it outside.
- Dull Surprise: Whoever voiced Bad Bart seriously did not care about projecting any sort of emotion in his acting.
- Dying Town: The place isn't as populous as it used to be according to bartender.
- Exploding Calendar
- Holier Than Thou: The priest that's found in the church ends up floating up into the Heavens if you go and pray there.
- Jerkass: The Man With No Name is an asshole. At one point, should you choose to talk with the old man, he repeatedly rubs it in his face that he's killed his pet. Thankfully, the guy's too senile to get it.
- Literally Shattered Lives: One of the possible deaths is to get shot to shards like glass.
- Major Injury Underreaction: Most victims take getting shot rather lightly.
- Meanwhile Scene
- Multiple Endings
- Mundane Made Awesome: The player is treated to a victorious orchestral Sting after successfully catching a mug of beer.
- Obvious Beta: Very, very obvious.
- Oedipus Complex: Someone carved next to one of the wanted posters that he loved his mom, which is why he shot his dad.
- One Last Smoke: One of the characters does this after being shot.
- Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Wildcard McVee's American accent is at least passable — until he's shot and he laments the bullet hole in his "waistcoat," which is called a "vest" in American English.
- Optional Sexual Encounter: Yes, you can sleep with a prostitute if you want. But make sure you take a bath first.
(The prostitute faints)
- Overly Long Gag: A few. Namely the "Wanted" posters and a point where the Clint Eastwood knockoff asks for the time from an old man, who looks into his watch over some creepy organ music for almost a full minute, before uttering a Little No.
- The sex scene apparently goes on for months.
Onlooker: Man's got ammunition...
- Retirony: One of the Game Over scenes has a variation of this, where the player character laments that they were one page away from finishing a book before they died.
- Saloon Owner: A nameless one, who can play cards with you and serve you beer, but provides little useful information apart from explaining that The Town With No Name is dying.
- The "Meanwhile" screen is a shout-out to Back to The Future.
- The "Pause For One Moment" screen found in the "Mystery Option" is a shout-out to The Godfather.
- Coincidentally, the rabbit gun scene found in that option could be a shout-out to The Terminator.
- The bad ending's "The End" screen could be a shout-out to Star Trek.
- One of those "Meanwhile" screens is a shout-out to Road Runner.
- Carved next to one of the wanted posters in the jail is "Uncle Jesse was here."
- It also has Shout Outs to films starring Clint Eastwood.
- The infamous ending of the hero shooting the kid is a parody of the ending from Shane.
- One of the posters has "FIRE WALK WITH ME" scribbled on it.
- Showdown At High Noon: The Ten Paces and Turn version. And the sheriff explains it every time.
- Spinning Clock Hands
- Town With No Name: It's even in the title.
- The Unfought: Immortal Issac is the only criminal from the "wanted" posters that you never fight, or even see.
- Wanted Poster: A whole series of them in the jail.
- Warmup Boss: Evil Eb's Littlest Brother, the first villain you take on that causes the rest of the Hole-In-The-Head Gang to come after you.
- We Could Have Avoided All This: The good ending, where it turns out that the Man With No Name, who was supposed to meet up with his sister, learns he's been in the wrong town all this time and all the conflict in the game turns out to be a goofy misunderstanding.
- Would Hurt a Child: One of the endings has the "hero" shooting a child because he got his name wrong.
