* CrossesTheLineTwice:
** [[spoiler:Timothy Dalton's character getting his chin impaled on the spire of a model church]]: gross and disturbing. [[spoiler:Timothy Dalton then whining in pain and asking for ice cream]]: hilarious.
** Angel finding [[spoiler: the corpses of the NWA's victims]] is pretty frightening and worthy of a slasher movie. However, finding [[spoiler: the corpse of the Living Statue over-acting his own death]] is just too intentionally ridiculous to keep the horror going.
** [[spoiler:Taking out James Reaper's old mother with a jump kick to the face]] also qualifies.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion wrote the "Here Comes The Fuzz" theme which appears regularly throughout the film
** And kicks as much ass as Nicholas himself.
* EndingFatigue: While the big shootout at the end is a tribute to cop movies, it can seem like an OverlyLongGag to some. then after the shootout we are treated to the station exploding, a graveside scene, and back in action. While the fatigue might not have been intentional, the producers note in the commentary that the effect was; they were partly influenced by ''BadBoys2'', and particularly the moment where it all seems to be ending, but then Martin Lawrence declares "This shit just got ''real''," and the movie keeps on going. It is, of course, down to the individual viewer whether this was a wise thing to be inspired by.
* GeniusBonus[=/=]ShownTheirWork:
** The filmmakers interviewed a lot of police officers with regards to how to make the film accurate. They noted that most PoliceProcedural depictions skip all the paperwork that's involved in criminal investigations.
---> '''Angel''': Sorry, not right now. We've got a tremendous amount of paperwork to do.
** Sandford is the name of the fictional town traditionally used in UK police training exercises.
* HarsherInHindsight:
** [[http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/08/21/mesquite.murder.suicide/index.html?hpt=hp_c1 Read this.]]
** Overzealous neighborhood watchmen killing people sounds funny until you read [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_Florida_vs._George_Zimmerman this]]. And it took place in a town whose name is ''one letter'' away from Sandford.
* HoYay:
** Insinuated by the Andys, and the protagonists. According to the trivia track, this is largely because the script once included a love interest named Victoria for Angel. After the character was cut, much of her dialogue was instead given to Danny, often without edits. For example, after getting drunk at the pub, Danny and Angel have a ''really'' HoYay conversation about Angel's inability to "disconnect" with work (Danny is using lines meant for Veronica). As the conversation gets more and more homoerotic-sounding, Danny suggest he knows a way for Angel to disconnect, doing said suggestion in an extremely HoYay tone... only to reveal his DVD collection of action films.
** "Well, this is me. Fancy a coffee?"
** Then the writers and actors went and wrote a whole series of [[SlashFic slash]] {{drabble}}s. [[http://www.edgarwrighthere.com/2009/10/the-steamy-hot-fuzz-slash-fiction-tweets-october-19th-2009/ On Twitter.]] (In response to discovering the fans who were doing so.) Wright comments there "We wrote some Nick/Danny slash once. It was called ''Hot Fuzz''."
** The outtakes on the DVD end with {{Fake Out Make Out}}s during the HoYay bits. And some dry humping.
** "Take out all the little people, you get to waltz off with the [[BigBeautifulMan cuddly monkey]]", says the fairground barker. Would that be the stuffed toy or Sgt. Butterman?
* HolyShitQuotient: [[spoiler:The last fifteen minutes ratchet up the action.]]
* JerkassWoobie: Micheal. Yes, [[spoiler:he was part of the NWA]], but it seems like [[ObliviouslyEvil he didn't really understand what he was doing]].
* MemeticMutation:
** Pictures or animated [=GIFs=] of Angel saying "GetOut!" are used as a [[LamePunReaction reaction to terrible puns]] on sites such as Imgur.
** [[HulkSpeak Yarp!]]
* NauseaFuel: [[spoiler:The reporter's death. Just...''ew''.]]
* NightmareFuel:
** [[spoiler: The scene where Nicholas discovers all the bodies stashed underground.]]
** [[spoiler:Moreover, the concept of the town in general, where everything is run by a shady organization more than willing to kill for absurd, petty reasons.]]
** [[spoiler:Skinner rushing at a defenseless Angel, boxcutter in hand, with ''pure, blind rage'' in his eyes. Let's face it: it was pure luck that saved Angel's life, there.]]
** [[spoiler: The reporter's death. His head is crushed, and he stumbles around for a minute before finally falling over]].
* OneSceneWonder: There are quite a few cameos and every actor is hilarious. But special mention must go to Bill Nighy as Kenneth, the chief inspector and Martin Freeman and Steve Coogan in the opening scene.
** Did you know that Peter Jackson is in the movie, uncredited? He's in for all of 2 seconds, ''stabbing Nicholas in the hand dressed as Father Christmas.''
** And Cate Blanchett, who you'll likely miss unless you're good at recognizing eyes, as Angel's girlfriend.
