YMMV: The Toxic Avenger
  • Awesome Music: The theme for parts 2 and 3.
    • Several from the musical, but in particular is Bitch/Slut/Liar/Whore, which features a duet sung by one person.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Okay... exactly when did Melvin gain the ability to transform into a sexy blonde reporter chick, and why does no one comment upon this in the fourth movie?
    • In some copies of the first film they have Lloyd Kaufman talking about how it's in the original version before he finds Toxie on the street dancing to the Toxic Crusader themesong for money, talking about how he sold everything for crack, and talking about all sorts of other horrible things he does before Lloyd Kaufman starts smoking crack with Toxie and getting hooked.
  • Crosses the Line Several Times
  • Dude, Not Funny!: The beginning of part 4 starts of with a school shootout in a special ed class room and was stated to be a reference to Columbine. Which only happened a year prior. Even if it wasn't cracking wise about a recent massacre, mocking the mentally disabled is pretty low no matter what standards.
  • Funny Moment: Toxie ripping off Frank's arm. Frank manages to deliver a bit of trashtalk before actually noticing (after which he is properly pimp slapped with his own arm).
  • Hilarious in Hindsight / Defictionalization: The first film has for the Big Bad a large, belligerent Mayor with a penchant for bribery and illegal, sleazy tastes, and that's in addition to being behind much of the crime that made Tromaville such a Crapsack World. Am I describing Mayor Belgoody...or Toronto Mayor Rob Ford?
  • Moment Of Awesome: Toxie ranting on how shallow Noxie is for having plastic surgery as he literally tears Noxie apart!
    • The entire Mexican restaurant fight scene from the original.
    • Toxie VS Evil Kabukiman in Citizen Toxie definitely counts.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The original has quite a bit, especially since it's a comedy.
  • So Bad, It's Good
