* ButForMeItWasTuesday: In the second film Bill is confronted by a young woman who says he killed her twin sister. He remarks that she will have to be bit more specific, as he's killed too many to remember their faces. Turns out it was the waitress at the fast food restaurant from the previous film, whom Bill killed for [[EvilIsPetty merely spilling some food on him]].
* CreatorCameo: Director Uwe Boll has a small role in ''Capital Punishment'' as the head of the news company.

* AuthorTract: These films are a particularly weird breed of an Author Tract. Its EvilGenius VillainProtagonist Bill Williamson is a deranged psychopath slash domestic terrorist who, while GoingPostal, murders innocent people by the dozens for nothing but his own self-serving reasons. However, at least once per film he'll go on a minutes-long rant explaining that his violent actions are supposed to wake up humanity, giving a very thought-out analysis about political and economic corruption. Considering it's coming from the mouth of a ''mass murderer'', the message is pretty much [[DontShootTheMessage shooting itself in the foot]].
