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"]].
-->[[YouSuck You think you a superstar? Cream Corn just blew up your car]]\\
Cleanin' up the streets\\
Don't mess with Dynamite, brother / Or you'll be one dead mutha\\
Cleanin' up the streeeeeets!

* UnfortunateImplications: In ''A Crisis For Christmas'', [[ItMakesSenseInContext Black Dynamite gets stranded in space]] and has to take refuge in an abandoned Soviet space station. The only other living being on the ship is his Soviet counterpart, '''''a chimpanzee''''', who ended up there due to a situation nearly identical to Dynamite's own. He is also apparently capable of understanding the monkey's speech. ''Monkey'', an old racist term for blacks. Especially since in real life the Soviets only used dogs--and that's not uncommon knowledge either; most people know about Laika.
** This is hardly the most unfortunate of the implications this show raises. The Asian characters are all literally yellow for God's sake. But the whole point is RefugeInAudacity, and it's all a bit too silly to offend anyone.
