* NerdsAreSexy: Napoleon developed a ''huge'' bevy of fangirls. Enough that some newspapers and magazines ran articles about the phenomenon.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: After the success of the film, many TV commercials (notably candy commercials for Skittles and Trolli) tried to emulate the film's style by featuring absurd, deadpan humor and realistic-looking kids in late '70s - early '80s clothes.

* LoveItOrHateIt: Netflix's recommendation system, which is generally quite accurate, [[http://whimsley.typepad.com/whimsley/2009/10/netflix-prize-was-the-napoleon-dynamite-problem-solved.html just can't predict how people will rate this movie]].

* AwesomeMusic - "Canned Heat" by Music/{{Jamiroquai}} (used for THAT DANCE SCENE) and "We're Going To Be Friends" by Music/TheWhiteStripes.
** "The Promise" by When In Rome.
*** Coincidentally, Jon Heder and Efren Ramirez appeared in a movie with the [[Film/WhenInRome same name as that group]].
** "Music For a Found Harmonium" used at the end when everything is being tied up. More like Crowning Music of ''Heartwarming'', but still.
** This list can't be complete without "Forever Young" by Alphaville, which is played at the school dance. Or "Time After Time" by Music/CyndiLauper for that matter.
* SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome: The state of Idaho [[http://web.archive.org/web/20070204150715/http://www3.state.id.us/oasis/2005/HCR029.html passing a resolution]] honoring the filmmakers for portraying Idaho so positively.
* FunnyMoments: Oh, so many. The crotch zapping time machine, Napoleon's dance near the end, Kipp's attempt to demonstrate the strength of a Tupperware bowl using Rico's van, the list goes on.
