* GreyAndGrayMorality: Buford is breaking the law by continuing his pursuit of the Bandit by justifying that he is trying to dispense justice against "a maniac" but it is mostly because he feels insulted for Carrie leaving his son at the altar which then morphs into Buford wanting to apprehend the Bandit because the Bandit is Moby Dick to Buford's Ahab; but he is right in the fact that The Bandit has threatened the lives of many officers. The Bandit is running as a blocker for an illegal shipment of beer... not for any good cause but because of money and glory; it is only by sheer luck that most of the stunts pulled by Bandit does not result in the loss of innocent life. However, Bandit is helping a young woman escape from a marriage that she was not prepared for. And he is just so damn charming that you can't view him as a total villain and neither can anyone in the movie.

* RoadRunnerVsCoyote: Let's just say the Bandit and Snowman assume the roles of the Road Runner, managing to elude capture, while Sheriff Buford and the many policemen that pursues them assume the role of the unfortunate Coyote.

* AntiVillain: Buford T. Justice.



* CorruptHick: Buford T. Justice has no idea that The Bandit is hauling illegal beer, which would have justified the pursuit at least within his jurisdiction--if not for the fact that he leaves said jurisdiction almost immediately. His pursuit is entirely for personal reasons and thus qualifies as being corrupt. Of course, the titular Bandit ''is'' breaking the law left and right, so neither party comes to the plot with clean hands.

* DrivingIntoATruck: A speeder calls for help to a trucker hauling a empty car carrier when being pursued by a state cop. The trucker agrees. With some fancy driving the speeder loses the cop by driving aboard the car carrier... or so he thinks. The speeder unexpectedly gets a tap on his window, and the cop is there asking him for his license and registration. (Its implied that the cop has driven aboard the car carrier also.) The speeder gets out of the ticket because the truck hasn't stopped, and they all cross a state line, so the cop is now out of his jurisdiction.
