* SignificantDoubleCasting: Hugh Keays-Byrne, the actor who portrayed the cruel and tyrannical Toecutter in the original film, came back to the series 30 years later to play the similarly characterized Immortan Joe in ''Fury Road''.

* AluminiumChristmasTrees: The "Anarchie Road" sign is a vandalised version of a real sign with the real name on it - the real name is "Anakie", it actually is that road (the film was largely made on the south-western outskirts of Melbourne) and Anakie is pronounced exactly the same way as Anarchy.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The series as a whole is largely remembered for being the TropeCodifier of the AfterTheEnd ScavengerWorld setting, complete with its DesertPunk aesthetic. The first film, however, takes place before the apocalypse that follows. Though crime runs rampant and the police force is stretched to breaking, society is still very much intact.

A video game by the developers of the ''VideoGame/JustCause'' games was released on September 1, 2015 for PC, UsefulNotes/XboxOne, and UsefulNotes/PlayStation4. It was originally announced as a tie-in game to ''Fury Road'', then was said to be an alt-universe standalone game, but was ultimately revealed to be something of a hybrid between the two. The plot is that Max was attacked by Scabrous Scrotus, one of Immortan Joe's sons, and has his beloved V8 Interceptor stolen for parts and he ends up working with Chumbucket, a deformed mechanic/blackfinger. Chumbucket sees Max as an Angel sent by the god Combustion to help him complete his car, the Magnum Opus. Max simply sees Chumbucket as a means of getting a replacement vehicle so that he can finally reach an area of the Wasteland called the Plains of Silence and find peace in a world gone mad.

* DieselPunk: Most of cars and it's style gradually devolved into this over spin of four films with ''Fury Road'' showing it's coolest.

* BadassDriver: Filled with so many examples that even your run-of-the-mill mook qualifies. But Max in particular stands out as one of the biggest not just in the movies but in the entire film medium.

* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: Because society has decayed to the point where new ammunition for guns is no longer manufactured, the primary WeaponOfChoice in the wasteland appears to be the humble crossbow. Ammunition is apparently readily available and, probably more importantly, is reusable. However, the reload time is appalling, as shown by the turbaned warrior in the final chase scene in ''The Road Warrior''.
* CarFu: The franchise holds a 10th degree black belt.

* TheVoice: The female police dispatcher. Those with a keen ear can hear that she is broadcasting insights into the movie's verse, such as the slang "Bronze" for MFP officers is discouraged by the MFP itself and it's stated that Max's use of the [[CoolCar Pursuit Special]] is unauthorized and that he may be a threat.
