- Hey, It's That Voice!: Phil LaMarr as Ugly Chris.
- Shout-Out: Being highly based upon The Western, in particular SpaghettiWesterns, the game has plenty of shoutouts to various cowboy films.
- Diego, while fighting you, will shout "Say hello to my little friend!"
- One fight in the Annie Stokes level plays out an awful lot like a game of Space Invaders.
- Supporting character 'Blind Willy Wilson' is mostlikely a nod to the blues singer Blind Willy McTell- The White Stripes covered one of his songs.
- The duelling contest itself is almost a Whole-Plot Reference to the Sam Raimi film The Quick and the Dead. Red Harlow's name is a Shout-Out to the unrelated Louis L'Amour novel of the same name.
- Three duelling enemies in the Jailbreak level are named Sergio, Ennio and Eli
- Mr. Black's gatling-coffin is similar to the one used by Django.
- What Could Have Been: This game was co-developed by Capcom and was more-or-less initially designed to be a Beat'Em Up with guns. More specifically it was to be something of a Spiritual Successor to Capcom's NES title Gunsmoke. Some of these elements can be seen in the final version, particularly earliy in the game as entire levels are based around the three bounties Red has to hunt down, each with very distinctive design and weapon of choice, much like the orignal Gunsmoke. Capcom artist Akiman provided the character designs. Earlier builds had supernatural aspects and crazy weapons, but Capcom dropped it, and Rockstar revised it. Now that Rockstar is in complete control of the property, the sequel has become a Wide Open Sandbox.
