* BetterOnDVD: The extended edition of the film has a scene where the cruel nursing home orderly gets his comeuppance (Happy throws him out of a second-story window after learning how he's been treating Grandma Gilmore). On the theatrical cut of the film he's a KarmaHoudini.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Chubbs and Mr. Larson. Being played by Carl Weathers and Richard Kiel helps.
* FridgeLogic: Why was Shooter involved in the meeting between Happy and the president of the Pro Tour? [[WatsonianVersusDoylist So he could find out about Happy's Grandma's predicament.]]
* HilariousInHindsight: One of the producers on ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' today? [[NamesTheSame Adam Sandler.]] He joined not long after this film got made.
* IronWoobie: Between his father dying, getting [[DisproportionateRetribution beaten nearly to death for an on-the-job accident]], failing to make the hockey team, losing his girlfriend, and watching helplessly as Grandma gets evicted from her home, Happy has to endure a ''lot''. It's enough to turn him into a ''de facto'' {{Determinator}} hero, despite his {{Jerkass}} tendencies.
* MemeticMutation:
** YER GONNA DIE CLOWN!
** "Guns don't kill people, I kill people!" It has become so popular so you can expect someone, either fictional or real person, to say this when they want to sound tough.
** "[[TheLifeAndTimesOfGrizzlyAdams Grizzly Adams]] ''did'' have a beard."
** "The price is wrong, bitch!"
** The hole scene.
** Shooter Mc Gavin is his own meme.
* {{Narm}}: Happy's first girlfriend scolding and then breaking up with him over his speaker phone, just because it's ''so poorly acted''.
* OlderThanTheyThink: ''Film/{{UHF}}'' also has a scene where a character says "Guns don't kill people. ''I'' do.".
* OneSceneWonder: Bob Barker, as he utterly whoops Happy during their game. Barker initially was going to decline the cameo, until he was informed he would ''win''.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Huh, who knew that [[Series/ModernFamily Claire Dunphy]] used to date Happy Gilmore?
* {{Squick}}:
** "I saw two big, fat, naked bikers in the woods, off the 17th, having sex! How am I supposed to ''chip'' with that going on?!"
** Happy's corrupted happy place.
* TearJerker: [[spoiler:Chubbs' death]].
* TooCoolToLive: [[spoiler:Chubbs]].
* WatchItForTheMeme: As mentioned above, the "Happy Gilmore vs. Bob Barker" part is the most well-known part of the movie.
