* BewareTheNiceOnes: Played around with Mr. Larson. When we first meet him, he's brooding and intimidating and beats Happy so bad he's sent to the ER. When Happy starts being a pro-golfer however he becomes one of Happy's most loyal fans. That being said he's still played by Richard Kiel (aka Jaws from ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'' and ''Film/{{Moonraker}}''), had beaten Happy into the ER, and bent a 9 iron. Guns don't kill people. '''He does'''.

* ChasedByAngryNatives: [[spoiler: Shooter gets this after losing to Happy then, being the sore loser he is, trying to steal his Golden Jacket...right in front of Happy's fans (who happen to include a particularly enraged [[Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe Richard Kiel]]). In this case, he doesn't run fast enough]].

** Happy gets an endorsement deal with Subway long before Jared made the company famous. In this case it's a plot point; the commercials earn Happy enough money to pay his grandma's back taxes.

** Happy gets an endorsement deal with Subway long before Jared made the company famous. In this case it's a fairly well-integrated plot point; Happy needs to make money to pay his Grandma's back taxes, he's an athlete who's been suspended from playing, and his LoveInterest works in P.R., making a commercial endorsement deal his most logical option.

* JerkJock: Shooter [=McGavin=] is obnoxious and arrogant and looks down on Happy for being new. He's like the stereotypical high school jock that went professional.

* JerkJock: Shooter [=McGavin=] is obnoxious and arrogant and looks down on Happy for being new. He's like the stereotypical high school jock that went professional. As such he's smug, arrogant, rude, and can't take losing from a never-been hockey player who beat him at his own game.
* Jerkass:
** Hal the abusive orderly, who forces elderly people to work for him and profits off their labor hand over fist. Happy tosses his ass out of a second-story window for this.
** Shooter [=McGavin=]: pro-golfer with a massive ego, sickeningly fake public image of a decent guy, and a SoreLoser to boot!
** Happy when he lets his temper get the better of him: goes berserk at a mini-golf park, attacks Bob Barker, and yells at anyone unfortunate to earn his ire.
** Donald the Heckler. Hired by Shooter to be just that and he succeeds at it, taunting Happy constantly and even trying to run him over. As stated below the most he gets is security chasing after him (and presumably getting into legal trouble off screen) and some burn wounds. At least Happy makes him take a shot he had no chance of doing well.

** The moment Happy gets on the pro tournament, it's clear the higher-ups don't want him there. After Happy starts swearing up a storm because he missed a putt, including attacking a few fans, the president of the tournament wants to kick Happy out immediately. He's only saved by Virginia arguing that Happy's presence will bring the tournament lots of money, though even she admits that "his behavior is completely unacceptable."

* ShoutOut: The fictional golf association in the movie has a major tournament that awards a Gold Jacket, as opposed to the real-life Green Jacket awarded at The Masters. This is alluded to when Happy first hears about it, muttering "Gold Jacket, Green Jacket, whatever."
