The sleeping mouse, who is friends with the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland.
When Rango is carried away by the wood lice it is the same as when Jack Sparrow is trapped in Davey Jones' Locker and the crabs carry his ship to the sea
In his terrarium-stage, Rango alludes to playing a sea captain.
Moving Cacti like the Ents marching to Isengard.
After the car accident, the windshield that Rango lands on belongs to the convertible being driven by Duke, also played by Johnny Depp, from the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
The scene in which Rango asks Beans for her dress size (and actually wears it) is inspired by the character he played in Ed Wood (Ed wood himself), a crossdresser.
"Cats and dogs living together" joke recreated.
Driving and defending the tanker only to find out it's empty.
The Death Star trench fly-in scene.
The whole "control the water" plot is influenced by Chinatown, and the mayor is a caricature of Noah Cross.
One of Balthazar's clan is wearing Jack Nicholson's gold football helmet
The squeaking windmill in the town of Dirt, including the specific sound of the squeaking, incorporates the squeaking windmill in the beginning of C'era Una Volta il West. The dramatic lighting in the saloon when Rango first enters is also the same as the first saloon scene in this 1968 film.
When Rango is escaping from the hawk who takes Rock-Eye, and Rock-Eye yells "You son of a..." to be cut off by the hawk screech, this mimics Tuco yelling to Blondie at the end of Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo.
The silver nose on the hawk is a reference to the silver nose Lee Marvin wore as the villain, Tim Strawn.
Rango has a vision where he meets the "Spirit of The West," which looks and sounds like "The Man with No Name." Rango identifies the character as the Man with No Name.
Rango mentions a poisoned chalice which is made a big deal in Court Jester with the pellet with the poison.
Rango gets swept up by Ghost Rider's motorcycle.

The slow motion shot of the huge water bottle flying over rango and beans resembles the final battle scene of Transformers when a robot flies over a woman. Both these scenes were made by ILM
The posse cross a bridge with a giant yellow eye behind them, recreating a shot from the Lord of the Rings films
At the beginning Rango, with the smilie-ball on his head, hits the windshield of a red Cabrio, in which two guys are sitting. The driver is smoking and wears the same hat, glasses and a hawaiian-shirt like Johnny Depp in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" who says paranoidly : "There's anothe rone! I knew it!"
clock tower featured in gunfights, town destroyed by explosions (in this case, water blasts) in the end.
When Rango hides from the hawk in the Pepto outhouse, it is a spoof of when the lawyer is attacked by the T-Rex in the first Jurassic Park.
The sequence where the hawk that tries to eat Rango gets his head out of the coffee can makes fun of the sequence where the magpie that tries to eat Dot gets his head out of the watering can.
The chase in the canyon involving the water jug imitates many shots from chase scenes in Mad Max 2.
The chase sequence is a parody of the air raid sequence, complete with a banjo version of Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries."
Rango is a parody of Spaghetti Westerns, and its title is a reference to this groundbreaking Spaghetti Western.
When Balthazar's family rises up from the ground, it's a spoof of Ray Harryhausen's iconic skeleton warriors in Jason and the Argonauts
Lone Rango is a spoof of this movie.
