1. Shoot to kill

Spaghetti Westerns are  characterized by the presence of more action and
violence than Hollywood Westerns. Also, the protagonists usually
act out of more selfish motives ( money or revenge being the most
common) than in the classical westerns.dollarsshoot

In A fist full of dollars the hero shoots three men because of a nasty joke.

Western satire

This subgenre is imitative in style in order to mock, comment on, or
trivialize the Western genre’s established traits, subjects, auteurs’
styles, or some other target by means of humorous, satiric, or ironic
imitation. Examples include Carry On Cowboy (1965), The Hallelujah Trail
(1965), The Scalphunters (1968), Support Your Local Sheriff! (1969),
Support Your Local Gunfighter (1971), Blazing Saddles (1974), Rustlers’
Rhapsody (1985), Three Amigos (1986), Maverick (1994), Quick Draw (2013)
and A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014).


Western comics have included serious entries (such as the classic comics
of the late 1940s and early 1950s), cartoons, and parodies
(such as Cocco Bill and Lucky Luke), more traditional Western comics are found throughout this period (e.g., Jonah Hex and Loveless).

Lucky Luke

The Daltons are fictional outlaws who regularly appear in the Lucky Luke
comic book series and are recurrent villains. They were created by
artist Morris and writer René Goscinny.

Lucky Luke does use his gun, but he never killed a man. He uses the gun for jokes and tricks.


Lucky Luke does not shoot, but he shouts “Pang”
