* [[https://youtu.be/8WKgNyvsNDM This rather clever video]] shows what would happen if Harry and Marv's AmusingInjuries from both movies were to happen in [[RealityEnsues real life.]] [[spoiler: In all, it would take nine Harrys and ''14'' Marvs to be able to survive the various injuries they suffered. Also, although the latter dies more, it's the ''former'' who dies first, via a broken neck from falling off the front steps backwards. In comparison, the same video series determined that [[DieHard John McClane]] would only die ''four'' times over the course of his first two movies, and all of those deaths are in the first (he was judged to have just barely evaded lethal damage in the second).]] Bleah.

* John Hughes actually wanted to make a sequel about an adult Kevin, entering into canon that he'd become a Joker-esque psychopath after seeing all the stuff he could get away with using his traps. With this in mind the films come off more as an early take on ''Film/HardCandy''.

** What's worse is that Macaulay Culkin's appearance in the web series DRYVRS and the above mentioned Daniel Stern clip both seem to take this idea and ''run with it''. [[spoiler: The sight of a resentful adult Kevin casually heating up a coathanger to incapacitate an attempted carjacker, kidnapping him and then seemingly [[ToThePain brutally murdering him]] says nothing good for Marv.]]

Okay yeah, watching burlgars get punished for their attempts with all manners of homemade traps can be hilarious, but also some of these traps are extremely nasty and outright ''life-threatening''.

* Highlights of the booby traps: the nail through Marv's foot, the tarantula, the glass ornament stepping, the scenes with the furnace, and ''the electric sink.'' That wasn't Kevin down there in that scene...that was [[Film/TheGoodSon Henry Evans]]!

** What makes this scarier is that it actually counts as example of TruthInTelevision: New Yorkers know that Central Park, despite how idyllic it is during the day, becomes a rather unsafe area at night, with an unpleasant amount of drug use, wild animals wandering, and even a tragic amount of rape. An adult wandering around Central Park after dusk is not a pleasant thought, let alone a child.

* Marv getting electrocuted and turning into a screaming skeleton for a few seconds was enough to scare the crap out of you.

* Meta: The actor for Marv [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSmGxRGut6w posted a video]] as some kind of comeback for the character. Sounds harmless right? Well, the video itself plays like found footage, with Marv being terrified and worried about Kevin coming back to get him. It's rather disturbing. Especially when it cuts to black and we hear his famous scream.
