** Serge from the first film, so much that they brought him back for the third.



* ValuesDissonance: After a few decades of LGBT civil rights progress, Axel's mincing imitation of a gay man in the first movie appears more uncomfortable than funny to many people.

** Or, if you live in Europe, [[FromBadToWorse WORSE]]. There was the time when a certain ringtone company decided to use the song to promote a certain HalfDressedCartoonAnimal ([[DontExplainTheJoke Alright]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crazy_frog THIS ONE]], [[SchmuckBait if]] [[YouHaveBeenWarned you must]]), thus ruining the original version and making it virtually impossible for fans of the original song to hum the original in public without some cretin blathering "[[MostAnnoyingSound DING! DING!]]" between the melody lines. Be THANKFUL it was hardly a success in the US.

* DesignatedHero: Axel. He's a ManipulativeBastard and his various {{Bavarian Fire Drill}}s on people with something he needs or wants are downright exploitative (he threatens to call a hotel racist in order to get a room without a reservation, then makes them give him a discounted rate. In the sequel, he steals a ''house'' undergoing renovation) and conducts illegal searches. Were it not for the much worse villains, he would easily be a VillainProtagonist.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In III, the dancing carjackers, dancing to Diana Ross and the Supremes' "Come see about me".



** The Wonderworld song.
*** TURN THAT FUCKING SONG OFF !!



* HarsherInHindsight: In ''II'', the visas are dated 9/11, 1986.
* HilariousInHindsight: In 1989, on ''The Arsenio Hall Show'', Eddie Murphy said, "(Landis) has a better chance of [[Film/TwilightZoneTheMovie working again with Vic Morrow]] than he does with me." Guess who directed ''Part III'', in 1994? How's that crow taste, Eddie?



* OneSceneWonder:
** Serge in I.
** Gilbert Gottfried as Dent's accountant in II.
*** Also in the second movie Chris Rock as the playboy mansion valet.
* {{Padding}}: Axel saving a couple kids from a malfunctioning ride in III. The scene obviously only exists because this section was going too long without an action scene.

%%* OneSceneWonder: Serge.



** Creator/ChrisRock, in only his second film appearance, as a valet.
* {{Sequelitis}}: The third film, in large part thanks to the absences of Taggart, Bogomil and Friedman, as well as Axel seemingly dropping a good bit of his trademark snark.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: In III when Axel runs over Taddeo (the henchman [=DeWald=] shoves out), Taddeo turns into the world's fakest-looking dummy.



* WhatAnIdiot: In II, getting into a pitched firefight in the middle of an arms depot. Good guys and bad guys alike are lucky to be alive after that one.
** One of Dent's mooks choosing an [[RareGuns Automag]], whose empty shell casings lead the heroes to find the conspiracy.
