* BrokenBase: Creator/BrianCox' portrayal of Lecktor is weird to see for someone who has seen Creator/AnthonyHopkins' Lecter first, but while Hopkins has an Oscar to back his version, more and more people are starting to let Cox's Lecktor in from the cold as ''Manhunter'' achieves cult status.

** Dolarhyde's [[OneManArmy one man rampage]] as he battles it out with what seems to be a small army of police, absorbing at least one [[FeelsNoPain point blank bullet]] with seemingly no effect, qualifies too. As does the moment when Graham [[{{BFG}} puts six explosive rounds through him]].

** LoveItOrHateIt: Other viewers find it quite an effective scene. It happens after the "scariest scene" because its meant to be an example of FromBadToWorse, and Crawford is not being casual but just being subdued and yet professional, giving the hidden message appropriate gravitas yet trying to assure Will that [[spoiler: his family will be safe and there is no need to panic, possibly keeping in mind that if the Tooth Fairy keeps to his pattern they are in no immediate danger. One might even say the 2002 movie misses the point by making everyone freak out- it might make them more human, but it also makes them look less like the elite law enforcement agents they are supposed to be.]]

* BulletsDoNotWorkThatWay: Glaser Safety Slugs are not the OneHitKill DepletedPhlebotinumShells portrayed in the novel. The movie also makes an error by having the rounds go through Dolarhyde; the Glaser is specifically designed to avoid this.

** Brian Cox would later have another major role as a villain in a [[VideoGame/{{Manhunt}} similarly named video game]].
* LifeImitatesArt: William Peterson found the role of Will Graham mentally exhausting and had trouble shaking Graham's characterisation even when he went on to other roles (he had to radically change his own appearance in order to look in the mirror and see someone else, according to Wiki/TheOtherWiki). Very appropriate, given that he's playing a criminal profiler who was institutionalised because he couldn't shake the thoughts of the serial killers he hunted.

THE COMIC
*CompleteMonster: [[ArchnemesisDad Walter "Walt" Pratt]] was the [[BastardBastard illegitimate son]] of the Justice Society heroes Phantom Lady and Iron Munroe. Growing up in a series of foster homes, Walt gained a streak of [[HeManWomanHater violent misogyny]] that manifested in brutally killing women later in life. [[DomesticAbuse Abusing]] and eventually murdering his own wife, Walt was sent to prison for the majority of his daughter [[TheProtagonist Kate]]'s life. When Kate was an adult with a young son, Walt returned to her life, revealing he was dying of bone cancer. Seeking to extend his life, Walt tried to kidnap his own grandson Ramsey to harvest his bone marrow to save his own life while paying the two supervillains he hired to do the transplant with Kate's ex-husband Peter, allowing the villains to torture him to death on camera. When he learned Ramsey was not a match, he tried to blackmail Kate to sacrifice herself in the transplant by threatening to beat Peter to death using Ramsey. When he realized there was no further way to survive, Walt proceeded to attempt to kill both [[OffingTheOffspring Kate]] and [[WouldHurtAChild Ramsey]] just to ensure his whole bloodline would be extinct.
