** The Nazi scene has gotten a lot of attention, 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"]].

** Foster watching the Fosters' home movies lets you see that he really was a nasty guy even before he snapped and his wife was perfectly justified in her fear of him.


Added DiffLines:

* RonTheDeathEater: D-Fens gets nearly as much of this as the DILP treatment. Many forget that at the end of the day, though he did bad things, he was not, or at least, never meant to become a "bad guy". He was, as his wife says, a sick man who needed help.

* MisaimedFandom: There is a fanbase for this movie who think that Foster's actions were justified, including his abuse of his family, and believe that was the point of the film. Apparently they missed the revelation "I'm the bad guy?"
* MoralEventHorizon: Many of his actions(fatally shooting the Neo-Nazi, who in his own words planned to send him to prison to be raped, going out of his way to non-fatally shoot someone who was trying to stop him) can't quite be called actions of an irredeemable villain. Smirking at a dying old man for hitting him with a golf ball was just plain sadistic and definitely showed he was starting to lose it.

** 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.br/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.

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

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

** 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.
