* BaseBreaker: The movie adaptation. Some think it's hilarious and Uwe Boll's best Video Game-Movie yet. Others find it to be a dull, unfunny {{In Name Only}} adaptation of the games. And then there's the third group who find it entertaining [[SoBadItsGood for all the wrong reasons]].

** The loading screens and credits screen in ''Postal 1'' are about as disgusting as much as they are scary, both of which depict a [[BodyHorror gross mass of fleshy people clumped together on a body pile]].

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The first game suggests that the Dude is truly being targeted by the townsfolk of Paradise, however, the presence of a moving truck outside your house in the first level has led some to conclude that he's gone insane because he was foreclosed upon. The intro to ''Postal III'' confirmed this, though given the events of that game are now [[CanonDiscontinuity just a bad dream the Dude had during an eleven-year coma]], it's hard to say for sure if that's still the case.

The intro to ''Postal III'' confirmed this, though given the events of that game are now [[CanonDiscontinuity just a bad dream the Dude had during an eleven-year coma]], it's hard to say for sure if that's still the case.

** Strangely, while games such as ''Postal 2'' and ''VideoGame/{{Manhunt}}'' have received harsh critique and are often called "{{murder simulator}}s", no one ever says the same about ''VideoGame/TheElderScrolls'' franchise, which has the Dark Brotherhood - a guild that is composed solely of murderers and hitmen.

* VindicatedByHistory: For the longest time, the series had dwindled in popularity due to the bane of the movie and third game hovering over the series. The series was rejuvenated however thanks the {{Steam}} release of the first two games. The series is now hailed as [[CultClassic a cult classic]], with the second game continuing to receive official updates and fan mods to this day.

* TheScrappy: Pretty much everyone you'll face in the games, though given that these games were developed by [=RWS=] (with the exception of ''III''), this trope is Enforced.

** The Dude's wife, however, takes the cake for being an [[UngratefulBastard Ungrateful Bitch]] and never giving the Dude any respect whatsoever. You finally get to confront her in a showdown in ''Paradise Lost'' [[spoiler: [[TakeThatScrappy and put her out of her misery]].]]



** Even most of the public restrooms blatantly feature excrement on the floors and sinks, suggesting that the citizens apparently have no value for public decency whatsoever.
