* SoCoolItsAwesome: ''Die Hard'' is widely regarded as one of the greatest action films of all time.

* SequelDisplacement: The original ''Die Hard'' was based off of the 1979 thriller novel ''Nothing Lasts Forever'' by Roderick Thorp which was a sequel to the 1966 novel ''The Detective'', which was adapted into the movie of the same name in 1968. So technically, ''Die Hard'' is actually a sequel to the 1968 film, ''The Detective''.

* WeirdAlEffect: Everybody knows [=McClane=]'s catchphrase "Yippie-Ki-Yay, [[PrecisionFStrike motherfucker]]!", but few now remember that the line (or at least the "Yippie-Ki-Yay" part) was derived from the western song "Git Along, Little Dogies".
