* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Many viewers agree with Harry's tough, aggressive methods, whereas others seem to find fascist undertones in the film.

* MostWonderfulSound: Harry's gun firing. So much that it was used in ''Film/TheTerminator'' (Orion Pictures version), ''Film/DeathWish3'' (Paul Kersey's .475 Wildey Magnum), ''VideoGame/LethalEnforcers'' (the player's default gun), ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil1'' (Barry Burton's gun in the FMV intro), and ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' (Mii Koryuji's Dragon Jewel rifle in the opening).

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: Despite Siegel and Eastwood disavowing any political intent, ''Dirty Harry'' was ''extremely'' controversial when released. Critics (notably Pauline Kael) attacked it as a "fascist" endorsement of police brutality, the [=ACLU=] and other liberal organizations picketed its premiere, and the press savaged it both for its questionable politics and graphic violence. However, this backlash redounded to its benefit, as conservative viewers (including police organizations and UsefulNotes/RichardNixon, who invited Eastwood to the White House after seeing it) ''loved'' the movie for the same reasons liberals hated it.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: The most powerful handgun in the world. In fairness, the claim is only made in the initial movie, but an upgrade is made to the .44 [=AutoMag=] in ''Sudden Impact''. Given that handguns have gone up to impractical calibres even for action movies, he goes back to his famous S&W revolver for ''The Dead Pool''.

* FirstInstallmentWins: The first film is easily the one that has retained the greatest stature in pop culture, to the point that some people forget that "Go ahead, make my day" didn't originate from it.
