* StrawmanHasAPoint: He's obviously extreme and very unstable but Bill's justification for his crimes (He devoted himself to a country that saw him as expendable and let itself rot with crime and social issues) is not hard to sympathize with him and understand his frustrations, if perhaps not his coping mechanisms.

* EvilIsCool: There are times where we cheer Foster's violent handling with every Jerkass he comes across, but frankly every thing he does maybe apart from defending himself from the 2 thugs, dismissing the beggar and killing the Neo-Nazi is just unethical, irrational and wrong.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Every viewer loved Foster for his attitude against [[AcceptableTargets the gangbangers, the neo- Nazi and the rich bastard]]. Bonus point for the fatigues he got from the military store, that almost looks as a leather coat.
** The film actually seems to deliberately invoke it, encouraging the audience to root for Foster before Prendergast ruthlessly deconstructs his character in the final scene, saying that everyone has problems like his and "that doesn't give you any special right to do what you did today."
* HilariousInHindsight: Creator/MichaelDouglas' character, Bill Foster, shares his name with a Marvel Comics superhero who was the best friend of Hank Pym. Some 22 years later, Douglas would actually play Hank Pym in ''[[Film/AntMan Ant-Man]]''.

** During the Whammyburger scene, a woman spits out her food in a panic when Foster walks up to her, causing him to remark to the manager "I don't think she likes the special sauce, Rick." In 2017, UsefulNotes/McDonalds held a one-day promotion where they brought back a special sauce that they hadn't had in their stores in almost twenty years (namely, the Szechuan sauce they carried as part of a promotion for ''Disney/{{Mulan}}''), thanks to [[WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty a show starring a character named Rick]] turning that sauce into a MemeticMutation -- leading to packed lines, flare-ups, and fights at many [=McDonald's=] locations across the country, not unlike when Foster pulled out his gun at Whammyburger.

** During TheWorldCup in 2010, a Brazilian blogger made "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunga Dunga]] Falling Down", scenes with a {{Gag Dub}} where D-Fens stood in for the HeroWithBadPublicity coach of the national football team (it begun with the [[BurgerFool Whammyburger]] scene becoming "what Dunga really said in the press conference") - helps [[https://www.putsgrilo.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/zangado-1.jpg the hairstyle and such were similar]]. It even warranted an extra chapter when Dunga returned following a shameful campaign in the 2014 tournament.

* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: Foster's sympathy for a black man being denied a loan. It shows that even though he's going off the deep end, he hasn't completely lost his humanity.
