* HeReallyCanAct: In the show's final episode, Base Head performs a rap number about his life and drug addiction called "Junkie's Delight." The rap was actually performed by Chance the Rapper, who managed to emulate the character's voice and distinctive lisp so perfectly that very few viewers could tell that the rap wasn't performed by Base Head's actual voice actor.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: The episode "Warriors Come Out" shows a gay pride parade and several transgender characters- and uses the slur "tranny" frequently. This is a ''really'' bad case of SocietyMarchesOn, as the episode's portrayal of its LGBT characters is embarrassingly dated at best, and hasn't aged well, given society's greater acceptance of LGBT people. The episode's use of the T-slur would be heavily frowned upon today.

* AwesomeArt: The show has fantastic animation, a gorgeous color palette, distinctive character designs (by Lesean Thomas,) and a season 2 intro animated by legendary Studio Trigger.

Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: The doctor who treats Black Dynamite's bullet wounds; as they note in the commentary, Paul Hayes played the role much like a square 70's character actor more suited to detergent commercials than blaxploitation (Michael Jai White even compares him to Advertising/MrWhipple), and the contrast between him and the cool-as-a-cucumber BD makes the scene even more absurd.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Even in a movie this ridiculous, [[spoiler:the ghost of Abraham Lincoln karate-chopping John Wilkes Booth's derringer from Richard Nixon's hand]] was a little bit weird.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Oh, yes.
** The Sir Charles Hughes song "Dynomite" is so cool that the chorus even becomes BD's signature leitmotif, playing whenever he does something awesome. (It gets used a lot, of course.)
** "Black Dynamite Theme", sung by [=LaVan=] Davis over the opening credits.
** "Jimmy's Dead", an AffectionateParody by Adrian Younge of the similarly titled Curtis Mayfly song "Freddy's Dead" from ''{{Film/Superfly}}''.
** During the montage of BD and his crew waging war on those who would peddle drugs to the community, Davis gets another, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxjg21moy54 "Cleaning Up the Streets"]].
