* EverythingTryingToKillYou: Though in the second and [[KarmaMeter third]] games, it depends on the player's actions. Still, the difference between everything and damn-near-everything is academic here.

* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: The Dude remarks on it in ''Apocalypse Weekend'' during an early hallucination sequence, noting after killing what appears to be a demon with the voice and features of Gary Coleman that "with my luck, that's really a nun, or someone's grandmother. [[SociopathicHero But there's no sense in taking chances]]."
* VideogameCrueltyPotential: The whole point of the series. In both games the player can encounter a marching band, that will inevitably be lit on fire or blown up. In Postal 2, it's possible to shoot a character, light him on fire, piss on him to put the fire out, kick him to death while he is crawling on the ground, then whack the charred corpse's head off with a shovel for good measure.

* WorldOfJerkass: Pretty much everyone The Dude meets ranges from "jerk" to "attempting to murder you and everyone else", so it's not too surprising that he has the attitude to match.

* CoolPlane: ''Apocalypse Weekend'' has the U.S. Military send in A-10 Thunderbolt II Warthogs to blow up the only bridge out of Paradise to stop any zombie or person trying to leave.

%%* DisgustingPublicToilet* DisgustingPublicToilet: Restrooms are grime-covered graffitied prison cells with toilets filled with unflushed urine, even in the women's room! Of course Postal Dude can make them worse as only he's the one using them.

** For April Fools Day ''Postal 2'' has "DLC" which are jabs one after another such as making you pay for useless armror for Champ as a jab to the infamous "horse armor" in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', [=RWS=] boxes as a jab ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' own Mann Co. Crates (and loot boxes in general), [[SelfDeprecation one to themselves]] with their "Super Fun Pigeon Hunter" "cut mission" from ''Apocalypse Weekend'' and one [[TakeThatAudience to the player]] who's every attempt at "buying" any of these has the Postal Dude mocking them for being so stupid with their money.

* DownloadableContent: While Paradise Lost is a straight example, the AprilFoolsDay event parodies this. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hrty0XUPjVI On the main menu]], the player will be greeted with a "Paid DLC (NEW!!!)" option, all filled with silly DLC ([[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Champ Armor]] [[TakeThat for $2.50]] and a Gary Coleman Romance Path for $6.99) with equally silly pricing (The Super-Fun Pigeon Hunter Mission costing $59.99[[labelnote:*]]despite outright admitting they only needed $3.50 to put it together[[/labelnote]] and the Uncensored Dude Willy costing $69.99), with the game even counting your "Money wasted". None of it actually exists though, since trying to actually buy it will result in the Dude chiding you.

* {{Retcon}}: 2 examples-
** Gary Coleman was stated to have been killed at the mall going by =[NPC]= dialog afterwards. he's alive in the hospital in ''Apocalypse Weekend''.
** The nuke in ''Apocalypse Weekend'' was planted in the game publisher's office. ''Paradise Lost'' says the center of the blast was at the site the Dude's trailer used to be at.

** Also in ''Paradise Lost'', at least the initial release, the marijuana plants at the herb farm on Friday lacked collision detection, making it impossible to complete the mission as they could not be harvested. This was actually patched quickly, but those who pirated the game didn't have access to the Steam patches so they suffered the glitch the worst, barring a small few who found workarounds(and even those workarounds don't work for everyone who try them).

* HitboxDissonance: Gary Coleman. Especially obvious when the AI [[BoomHeadshot always goes for the head]] and you see puffs of blood appearing ABOVE Gary's head when he gets into a shootout. Likely done for balance reasons, lest Gary end up like ''VideoGame/GoldenEye1997's'' Oddjob.
** This also leads to strange things if you play ''A Week in Paradise'' and attempt to kill Gary when he shows up; if you do so with a bladed weapon and behead him, his ragdoll stretches out to normal size.
** Fixed in the Steam version, since Gary's hitbox now matches his model and no longer glitches out when he is decapitated.

** After the Dude trashes the newly-reopened Cock Asian in search of Champ on Monday, the place remains closed and blocked off for almost the rest of the game, only opening up after the Apocalypse hits again at the end of Friday. They advertise that they have a new source of meat that's ''not'' dog this time. [[spoiler:It's ''zombies.'']]



** ''Paradise Lost'' adds a couple unique enemies with better weapons and higher-than-normal health (the PU Games CEO and John Murray, the protagonist of the ''Eternal Damnation'' mod, who's worshipping the A/C unit at the asylum), but who aren't straight up bosses.
