Although it was not Leone's intention, the three movies came to be considered as a trilogy following the exploits of the same "Man With No Name" (Eastwood, wearing the same clothes and acting with the same mannerisms). The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is usually considered a prequel, since Eastwood's character gradually acquires the clothing he wears in the other two films.

Mexico Trilogy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (466 words)
The "Mariachi Trilogy" or "Mexico Trilogy" is a series of movies: El Mariachi, Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico all directed by Robert Rodriguez which tell the continuing story of the movies' main character "El Mariachi".
The trilogy originally was just to be one story, El Mariachi, with Desperado as a remake for American audiences.
However, this concept, little known to the movie's audience, is often a large criticism of the film, and it is seen therefore, by many, as a trilogy in which the films became 'weaker' over time.
