These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The two fight scenes where Tommy beats up Eddie in the first scene and Junior in the second scenes. Surprisingly for a person who spent the rest of his childhood in an insane asylum he knows some pretty decent MMA style moves. However there is the odd question: How and when did he learn them? Was there a JKD class in the asylum he was in? Did Dan Inosanto stop by during visiting hours, or is Tommy really that crazy?
Ensemble Darkhorse: Violet, who many fans wish had survived and is still considered one of the more memorable victims in the franchise.
Roy Burns for those who didn't hate the twist.
Reggie is also quite well liked, often being seen as an aversion to the typical useless, annoying kid character in horror movies.
Joey's sudden demise should be shocking, but the way he has established himself as The Scrappy moments earlier makes his death seem more like a blessing.
Intensive horror music plays when Pam, Tommy and Reggie drive to the trailer park.
When a lightning strike reveals to Reggie that Tommy's dark room is filled with corpses, it's a decent horror film moment. Then Pam goes in there and the exact same thing happens, it has been turned into a comedy film moment.
When Pam closes in on the killer with a chainsaw, it suddenly runs out of gas.
Interestingly, averted with the death scenes, which can verge on disturbingly realistic. Especially Robin's death rattle.
Raymond's death is sorta split, while kinda Narmish for the concept, just seeing the sight of a belt tightly wrapped around a guys eyes so much as it starts to cave in as the guy's screaming, can't help but also be disturbed by how real it looks too.
The blue markings in the hockey mask used in this film look like a moustache.
