Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceTown: At the start of the first film, Tromaville was a WretchedHive full of thugs, psychopaths, crooked cops and corrupt politicians. By the time the first sequel came out, Tromaville ended up becoming a safe (and eco-friendly) place to live, with evil corporate goons, diapered terrorists and anybody else who tries turning Tromaville into the hellhole it once was quickly massacred by the Monster Hero.
--> '''Melvin Junko/The Toxic Avenger''': Several years ago, I and the little people of Tromaville succeeded in crushing all criminals and ridding Tromaville once and for all of evil and corruption. Tromaville actually became a nice place to live. With no criminals or oppressive politicians around, the people of Tromaville were once again happy. Once again they were free to devote themselves to their principle activities of dancing in the streets, tattooing, manufacturing orange juice, exterminating vermin, watching excellent movies and dancing in the streets.


** Early in the movie, Bozo and his entourage of serial killers hits a young boy on a bicycle whilst drinking and driving. After being sent barreling over the car, The kid desperately tries to low-crawl his way across the street. Seeing that he was still alive, Bozo proceeded to run over the kidís head, popping it like a balloon and splattering the road with his brains and blood. The terrible thing is that this gruesome murder was committed for no other reason than the thrill of the kill, which made this scene extremely upsetting.

* CardCarryingVillain: Nearly every bad guy that Toxie beats up (with the sole acception being [[spoiler:the old lady Toxie kills in the first film, who was actually a member of the White-Slave trade]]) are so [[CartoonishSupervillainy cartoonishly villainous]], they may as well [[IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten eat kittens]] in front of their little girl-owners while wearing "I'm Evil" t-shirts. Examples include a group of dude-bros and their girlfriends running over a kid on a bicycle (and backing up just to crush his head under a bike and take pictures of it), drug-dealers, street gangs, diapered terrorists, a MegaCorp whose sole purpose is to spread pollution, and ''{{Satan}} himself''.

Added DiffLines:

* ArchEnemy: Toxie has Bozo, the violent thug who dunked him in the waste in the first place.


* ToxicWasteCanDoAnything: The Toxic Avenger, of course. While it does make the titular character very ugly and the [[PainfulTransformation transformation is painful]], it also grants him '[[SuperStrength superhuman size and strength]]' and once he has fully transformed, he seems quite capable of living a normal life with no side effects.

* LaughablyEvil: In a more serious movie, Bozo and his gang would be complete monsters. Heck, just about ''every'' antagonist qualifies, this being a Troma film and all.
