Added DiffLines:

* TimeshiftedActor: Parodied; while in the flashback with Jimmy, "18-Year-Old Black Dynamite" looks so little like his adult counterpart (with Scott Sanders mentioning in the commentary how Neill Lewis is [[ButNotTooBlack "several shades lighter"]] than Michael Jai White) that he still has to state who they both are, just for clarity.

* BadBadActing: Many of the line readings are delivered in an intentionally stilted way to parody the level of acting you might find in a cheap blaxploitation film. In one notable example, Black Dynamite is supposed to be frolicking playfully with his new girlfriend, but the actor is clearly confused and annoyed by the scene.

Added DiffLines:

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: In-universe, of course. Black Dynamite -- a stern, violent, murderous pimp -- appears as himself on the faux-kids show ''Ding Dong Roar'' to deliver a PSA to children about how DrugsAreBad; the way they choose to spread the word, however, is through a song confusingly titled [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mk6Zy1xC4JM "Drugs are Fun"]], almost entirely about how drugs have street names that sound like nice things.

Added DiffLines:

* JiveTurkey: The makers noted that most of the old blaxsploitation movies were actually written by white men, and contained slang that didn't really resemble the way black people talked even in the seventies. One said that he had never in his life heard a black man call someone a "jive turkey," but of course ''Black Dynamite'' had to be full of that kind of thing.

* {{Homage}}

to:

* {{Homage}}{{Homage}}: Black Dynamite's look and signature kiais are modeled on Jim Kelly, a martial arts-fighting blaxploitation star.



* {{Kiai}}: Black Dynamite's deep "oooo-weee!" kiais sound like Jim Kelly's, such as in ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRY9dAqDLOQ Three the Hard Way]]''.



* ShoutOut: The line "Suddenly I'd like to leave your island!" is from Bruce Lee's 1973 film ''Film/EnterTheDragon''. It was said by Williams, another black kung fu guy. Black Dynamite's kiais also sound like Jim Kelly's - the martial artist who played Williams in ''Enter the Dragon''.

* VisibleBoomMic: Intentionally, obviously. Michael Jai White even looks visibly distracted by it.
