** Godwing's tip looks suspiciously phallic when Machinehead activates the platinum nitro charge. It doesn't help that Machine''head'' is right at the tip of it glowing red and orange from the friction.

** MidSeasonUpgrade: While there is no "mid-season" per se, after the Yellow Line Sonoshee and JP both get upgrades to their vehicles. Sonoshee has a third engine attached to the back while JP's Trans AM is completely overhauled, gaining a superior engine, fifth wheel and overall more angular design. In the segments featuring the other racers, this happened to Machinehead's Godwing (with each successive Redline win) and Lynchman's Lynchcar (the last model of which is now on sale in model-form in-universe). The other riders seem to have kept their original rides.

** Little Deyzuna violated Volton's orders and committed treason, the penalty of which is death, to join the race. However we don't know what happened to him after that.

* WillfullyWeak: During their interview the Superboins Bosbos and Boiboi make it known that they won't be using magic out of respect for the other racers. [[spoiler:Once it becomes apparent just what sort of hell Roboworld's got prepared for them, though, all bets are off.]]

** Sweet JP refuses to use weapons despite everyone else doing so. Even going to [[DeathWorld Roboworld]], the most he'll do is install an engine that is, at best, a danger to himself.

* HeroOfAnotherStory: Plenty. Most obvious is Lynchman and Johnny Boya, who not only are in-universe crimefighters/bounty hunters, but also have their own movie series and toy line. Then there's Trava and Shinkai, who are actually from another series and have some sort of offscreen story with Little Deyzuna. Basically anyone who gets a significant amount of screentime but isn't part of Roboworld or involved with JP, Sonoshee or Machinehead has their own little story offscreen.

** Meanwhile Machinehead's Godwing is heads and shoulders above the other racers in almost all categories, but the strain of piloting it would kill a normal human, making it DifficultButAwesome. Unfortunately for the other racers, Machinehead specifically modified himself to either be immune to it's drawbacks or take advantage of them, instead turning him and Godwing into GameBreakers (small wonder why he's won three consecutive Redline races).

* 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. 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. [[spoiler: Little Deyzuna]], who shows up midway through the race and not even in a customized vehicle, is a JokeCharacter.

* {{Gainaxing}}: Sonoshee after winning the Yellowline. Later on, the Boinboins get in on it too.


Added DiffLines:

* ReluctantFanserviceGirl: While watching TV, Sonoshee complains about the camera crew focusing on her ass while she's fixing her car. [[LampshadeHanging Right after she says this, the scene changes and the audience gets to enjoy a shot of her bare breasts.]]

* 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.
