** ''Paradise Lost'' adds plenty of new targets to have fun with, such as [[ElectronicArts EA-style]] game developers, a Creator/TimSchafer lookalike, ''another'' [[AnimalWrongsGroup PETA like group]], [[FormerChildStar Zack]] [[Film/AChristmasStory Ward]] (AsHimself), [[CrazySurvivalist doomsday preppers]], [[NewAgeRetroHippie hippie versions]] of UsefulNotes/{{Islam}}ic terrorists, [[FormerChildStar Gary]] [[Series/DiffrentStrokes Coleman]] ''[[RunningGag again]]'', [[MemeticMutation soulless gingers]], Milo Yiannopoulos (playing himself, incredibly) and the Postal Dude's [[PsychoExGirlfriend fat ex-wife]].

** When you're off to get the Krotchy doll, [[BossInMookClothing Krotchy]] himself decides to fight you if you're on your way back from the back of the store. And he has a rocket launcher with him. Of course it's easy to defeat him prior to fetching the doll, and [[GoodBadBugs spamming the gas can and setting him on fire literally breaks his ability to use the rocket launcher for a while.]] Of course, you can trade him a signed Gary Coleman book for a Krotchy doll to skip the entire sequence. Or just buy it off of him (any amount of cash seems to do, but he'll take all the money you're carrying).

(Though you may have to fight him in the Steam version of the game whether you like it or not).


Added DiffLines:

** The Postal 2 achievement "Michonne ain't got nothin' on me". All it says is "resurrect a zombie for your own nefarious purposes" but there's nothing in game that tells you how, let alone that it's even possible. To do this you have to bisect a zombie with either the machete or scythe at the waist then smash it's head off with the bat or hammer. Now piss on the corpse to resurrect it as a floating torso.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hS1sYig7MQo The "Parade Of Disasters".]] It changes back to NightmareFuel in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Taocg2fm5E "Redux", which becomes alot echo-ish]] and incredibly disturbing as the "steam" noise is even more intense than the original.

** 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]].

** [[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]].
