** This would apply, except that he's never set up as a hero. He's a VillainProtagonist, and as such gets a SympatheticPOV to the point that most viewers probably root for him through most of the movie. But by the end of the film it's made clear he's the bad guy, to the point that in the end [[HeelRealization even he realizes it]].

** The Wammy Burger and golf course scenes both are quite popular as well, especially after they were parodied in Das Bo Schitt's ''Machinima/TheGModIdiotBox'' series.

** Pretty simple actually. He gives his lunch away because he has money and can afford another. The problem at the fast food joint is that he was beind denied what he wanted to buy and, in his mind, had the right to demand as a customer.

* AcceptableTargets: The Nazi store owner, certainly. Probably a lot of other people that run afoul of Foster as well. ** Definitely the violent gang members.

* MemeticMutation: The Nazi scene has gotten a lot of attention lately, specifically the part where he smashes Foster's gift to his daughter [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laFCqCCEGTc while proclaiming that it's "fayget sheeyit"]].

** The film actually seems to deliberately invoke it, encouraging the audience to root for Foster before Pendergast 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."
