** Vince Desi had previously promised the game would not have DRM. [[[LyingCreator The final version does.]] Just one of many things Akella did.

* CreatorKiller: The feature film from Uwe Boll was one of the final projects that the video game companies allowed to go forward; the controversy over the portrayal of Al-Queda in that film (which actually did not get much attention from the U.S. Government or George W. Bush, who got a TakeThat in the film at the end), along with his string of VideoGameMoviesSuck examples that scored below 10% on Rotten Tomatoes, were all NotScreenedForCritics, were mostly Box Office Bombs, and had dealt crippling damage to the games the films were based off, resulted in Boll being essentially blacklisted by the gaming industry as a whole, which shot down attempts by Boll to direct ''Warcraft'' and a ''Metal Gear Solid'' film. All of Boll's video game movies after 2009 are sequels to movies he already did. He's also been a C-list director since.

''Postal: The Movie'' also led to RWS doing their own TakeThat to Boll in the third game.

* ActorAllusion: Zack Ward's work on the ''Postal'' film adaptation (not to mention the majority of his filmography and other acting work, in particular ''Film/AChristmasStory'') gets acknowledged in the ''Postal 2'' expansion pack ''Paradise Lost''. See HeyItsThatGuy

* HeyItsThatGuy: The film version of the Postal Dude is played by Zack Ward. Guess [[Film/AChristmasStory Scut Farkus]] ''really'' didn't turn out so well after growing up. He even makes a return AsHimself in ''Paradise Lost'', [[SelfDeprecation in all his self deprecating glory]]. If you face him on the final day of the game, [[spoiler: he will dress up as his character in the ''Postal'' film and declare himself the [[KillAndReplace "true" Postal Dude]] and challenge you to a [[ThereCanOnlyBeOne fight to the death.]]]]
** Played with in the ''Eternal Damnation'' mod- a radio at one point seems to have audio from Postal Dude, except it's not- it's a clip from one of Rick Hunter's radio broadcasts.

** Rick made a return to ''Postal 2'' when it was updated with additional content and voice clips. One of the bullet points for the Steam page of the ''Paradise Lost'' DLC is even "The Dude's original voice: No bogus imposters here!" [[spoiler:This doesn't stop Corey Cruise from [[SplitPersonality reprising his role]], however...]]
