** The "[[http://postal.wikia.com/wiki/War_Journal War Journal]]" from the original "POSTAL". It shows up as the original diary entries of the game and have been integrated into the HD remake. Unlike the normal entries, the journal portrays the Postal Dude as a [[TragicHero Tragic]] AntiHero on a crusade against the "[[HatePlague madness plague]]" (regarding the hostiles killing everyone during gameplay) rather than a bloodthirsty mass murderer. According to the Dude himself, he claimed that he doesn't enjoy violence, seeing it as NecessaryEvil. However, in the ending, it was revealed that the Postal Dude was, in fact, [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness insane all along]].

** ''Postal III'' may not be the best game in the series, but it's soundtrack deserves a special mention for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCpJakDrNjQ ''Going Postal'' by Secondhand Child]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60k4Mf5jRuA ''Didgerivoodoo'' by Stands With Fists]] (which their track ''When It Comes On'' is also featured as the credits theme for ''Paradise Lost'') and, of course, the remixed version of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPnLh6WRoS4 ''Goodbye Almond Eyes'' by Tokyo Rose]].

** ''Postal III'' is this to some, being not worth the [[DevelopmentHell wait]], but not worth the [[{{Sequelitis}} ire]] either.

** ''Postal III'' is this considered "The Average Joe" of the series to some, being not worth the [[DevelopmentHell wait]], but not worth the [[{{Sequelitis}} ire]] either.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsN1IafC33Y The "Central Park" theme becomes this in ''Redux'' mixed with]] NightmareFuel.
*** What it makes the theme a little more depressing than the original version from the 1997 game is the full sample of [[https://clyp.it/omm21zpf "Is That The Door?" by Zero-G]] used throughout the entire track. Also, it was used for the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTWWCpGpkoo "Ice"]] track from VideoGames/SilentHillShatteredMemories and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQCssEOshFQ "Radio"]] from VideoGame/HalfLife2.

* HilariousInHindsight: ''Postal III'' featured a pre-order bonus called [[LethalJokeItem "Fart Gun"]] exclusive for the Russian release, which [[OneHitKill instantly knocks out anyone in the vicinity]]. One year earlier, the same weapon was featured in the 2010 movie WesternAnimation/DespicableMe and it still retains the same effect.

*** Also, the game itself is the [[BloodierAndGorier goriest in the series and the violence is even more graphic.]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Try shredding a crowd of people with a]] [[MoreDakka M249]] or a [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter Benelli M4 Super 90]] and [[BodyHorror you'll see what happens...]]



** TearJerker: If you played the PacifistRun of ''Paradise Lost,'' after defeating [[spoiler:the Bitch, [[VillainousBreakdown she'll break down]] and apologize for her constant abuse of the Postal Dude over the years, confessing her love and begging him to take her back. Postal Dude's response? [[Film/GoneWithTheWind "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a shit."]] Cue the Bitch sobbing loudly and throwing a temper tantrum.]]

* FanonDiscontinuity: Fans of the previous games wished that ''Postal III'' never happened, thanks in no small part to not having the original developers on board, and [[ObviousBeta having serious glitches that ruin the whole experience]]. The original developers themselves not only [[CreatorBacklash disowned the game]], but the second expansion for the second game, ''Paradise Lost'', made it [[AllJustADream nothing more than a bad dream the Dude had]], [[CanonDiscontinuity thus officially erasing it from continuity]].

** The gimps in In ''Paradise Lost.''Lost,'' [[spoiler:a bomb shelter is opened beneath the Lucky Ganesh, and a horde of gimps come out, vowing to "kill all post-apocalyptic abominations." The Postal Dude either kills them all or runs past them, and nothing is ever seen or heard of them again.]]

** The Military Base to the end of the game are a long string of these in ''Apocalypse Weekend''. Starting at the Military Base, like the Brewery, [[NoGearLevel all of your items are stripped upon starting the level]]. Made worse by the fact that, unlike the Brewery, a lot of the items you were using don't appear in the base at all, meaning that they are officially LostForever. Plus, the Military Base is [[MarathonLevel LONG]], clocking in at four parts altogether. Adding on to that, the entire level is absolutely ''swarming'' with [[DemonicSpiders the National Guard]], all of which are very resilient, are immune to [[YourHeadAsplode their heads exploding]] from the Sledgehammer or Baseball Bat and all carry machine guns - and to make it worse, medkits are [[DroughtLevelOfDoom far too sparse for the kind of punishment you'll be taking]] (this one almost seems to be on purpose, since after three of the four levels the Military Base goes through, with a small handful of medkits to tide you over, you find '''''an entire shipping container full of them all in one spot'''''). These traits all put together mean that you'll be torn to shreds faster than you can say "I regret nothing". Oh, and all those GameBreaker melee weapons you were having so much fun using? The only one you get back before the final five minutes is the sledgehammer, which the soldiers are completely immune to. Hope you can find the Axe or Machete in there, since they're the only practical melee weapons in the level!
