The show offered an unbeatable combination of old-fashioned daring derring-do with a strong conservationist message. It also gave parodists a field day, and (perhaps unintentionally) did much to contribute to the stereotype of the "Australian Naturalist" as a khaki-clad testosterone-fueled adrenaline junkie whose passion for up-close-and-personal encounters with large, dangerous, or deadly animals bordered on protracted suicide.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Everyone assumed Irwin would eventually get killed by an animal, and he was...but not during one of his crazy stunts, but in a random accident that could have happened to anyone.

* AdamWesting: A slight example in TheMovie as it's scripted and Steve and Terri kinda come off as somewhat oblivious (almost to Inspector Gadget levels) to what is actually going on in the plot of the film.

Irwin's legacy lives on in the family he leaves behind: his wife Terri, who often served as his sidekick on ''Crocodile Hunter'', their son Robert and their daughter Bindi, who continue their father's work in the capacity of "junior animal activists." Bindi has starred in the DirectToVideo film ''Film/FreeWilly: Escape From Pirate's Cove'', and now has her own kids' show, ''Bindi's Bootcamp''. Nowadays, Robert Irwin is most well-known for his appearances on Series/TheTonightShow with Creator/JimmyFallon, where many people have noted that [[GenerationXenox his excitement and enthusiasm for animals is very similar to his father]].

* StageMom: They were some accusations that Terri pushed Bindi too hard into being [[TheFaceOfTheBand the face]] of Australia Zoo right after [[TheBandMinusTheFace Steve's passing]], including taking her to America and doing lots of things over there. It has died down recently.

* FriendToAllLivingThings: Something he was famous for, though it's debatable how much the animals thought of him as a friend. According to the camera crew who witnessed his death, his last words were basically telling them that the stingray didn't mean to sting him ([[ObliviouslyEvil technically, though, he was right]]) meaning that he held this attitude ''even as the poison of one of those animals is killing him''.

* ThePollyanna: It didn't matter if a komodo dragon chased him up a tree or if a snake threw itself at him, Steve would never lose his upbeat attitude and saw his close calls (and other moments where most people would freak out) as something to be excited by, either as a show of the animals' skills or the adrenaline rush of being attacked by a cool critter (like when a baby Nile Crocodile bit his thumb, he was happy to have been bitten by a Nile Crocodile).

Despite all the crocodile antics, they were not the ones to kill him. [[AuthorExistenceFailure Irwin died in a freak accident with a stingray while diving]]. He was mourned worldwide. And, in a stunning case of general oddity, many Aussies went on [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge stingray-butchering rampages]] in the name of one of the most famous animal lovers in history. [[WhatTheHellHero They were called out on this]], as people said that that's not what Steve Irwin would have wanted. Perhaps even more bizarrely (though far less disturbingly), Philadelphia Phillies fans used Irwin as a rallying cry during their successful 2008 World Series run against the Tampa Bay Rays.
