* TroperCriticalMass[=/=]{{Troperiffic}}: This movie is ''adored'' by tropers. Not to the extent of TengenToppaGurrenLagann or other TroperCriticalMass works, but it's impressive for a 100-minute movie that seems to have been destined to become obscure.

* CoolBike: So many; of particular note is Miki and Todoroki's bizarre insectoid looking one 'Semimaru' (complete with legs).
** And the anti-gravity bike JP uses to get around Europass.

* AlmostKiss: Two. One when JP and Sonoshee are talking about [[AppliedPhlebotinum steamlight]] and are interrupted by another racer. The second one is interesting as it's involuntary: [[spoiler: when Machinehead uses his steamlight nitro boost in the final stretch, Sonoshee does the same in JP's car and the extreme speed forces their faces together, though they don't lock lips.]]

* CompetitiveBalance Each of the Redline competitors can be broken down in a particular category. Sonoshee's Crab Sonoshee, while not as fast as the [=TransAM=] 20000, has some decent offensive options and can take a lot of punishment, making it a JackOfAllStats. The Superboins' Boincar, which is able to [[TransformingMecha transform into a humanoid mecha]] [[spoiler:and use magic to destroy military vehicles,]] is a MagicKnight. Lynchman and Johnny Boya's Lynchcar, which boasts powerful Sidewinder missiles and a mean rocket-anchor, yet gets thrown around a lot in the race, is a GlassCannon. Miki and Todoroki's Semimaru, which is an odd, bug-like vehicle that takes advantage of Gori-Rider's excavating, uses a lot of ConfusionFu. [[spoiler: Little Deyzuna]], who shows up midway through the race and not even in a customized vehicle, is a JokeCharacter.

Sweet JP's [=TransAM=] 20000 and Trava and Shinkai's dragster are both poorly/not at all armed and with a power-to-weight ratio that borders on insane, slotting them both neatly into FragileSpeedster.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* CurbStompBattle: Little Deyzuna vs. Trava. ''Orrrr'' Little Deyzuna beats the ever living shit out of Trava. Either's fine.

* [[spoiler: EverybodyLives: All the Redline racers manage to make it through the death trap race. In fact, the only casualties in the whole movie are Big Deyzuna, the mob boss and his two goons, and a bunch of Roboworld mooks that get vaporized by Funky Boy.]]

* InSeriesNickname: All the racers have one. For instance, "Sweet JP" is a snarky epithet hurled at him by the others because hes too fair-minded to use landmines, rocket-propelled grenades or tactical nukes just to win a race.

* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Colorful Hair]]: Boiboi has pink hair and Bosbos has green hair with yellow highlights. Trava has blue hair, though he's not exactly human. Sonoshee has green ''and'' pink hair, and JP's hair can be seen as a shade of blue in some scenes.
