* StealthPun: The title of ''The Fate of the Furious'' is derived from the working title, ''F8'' -- if you take the first letter of the working title and pronounce it in front of the number, then you have a homonym for "Fate".

* ''2 Fast 2 Furious'': Starring Walker and Tyrese, was directed by John Singleton and released in 2003. Brian O'Conner has long since left the LAPD and fled to the streets of Miami, but is coerced to infiltrate a local drug lord's money laundering operation as a runner. He recruits his childhood friend Roman "Rome" Pearce (Gibson) for a second driver, and both of them work to undermine the bad guys and get their criminal records wiped clean while trying to stay alive in the process. Dominic, despite being the first film's lead, does not appear.

Not at all to be confused with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcG1_0AM-vQ the 1955 movie starring Dorothy Malone & John Ireland]], ''The Fast and the Furious'' (also commonly known as ''Fast and Furious'') is a series of action films, which center on illegal street racing and (later) heists produced by Creator/{{Universal}}. Here, the cars are fast, the drivers are furious, {{technology porn}} abounds and the cast of characters who eventually become "the crew" aren't just comrades, they're [[ArcWords family]]. The movies are known for their unrelenting {{sequel escalation}}, steadily growing the franchise into one of the most popular, and financially successful, in recent memory.

* ''The Fate of the Furious'' (Originally titled ''F8''): Released April 2017. The film rejoins the cast during Dom and Letty's honeymoon in Cuba, with the rest of the team exonerated and presumably retired. It features the franchise's first female villain, Cipher (played by the franchise's first Oscar-winning addition to the cast, Creator/CharlizeTheron) an anarchist, high tech terrorist, and professional criminal, who seduces Dom back to the world of crime he'd left behind and the crew (sans Brian) are forced back into action to stop him. The film is directed by F Gary Gray (of ''Film/TheItalianJob2003'' and ''Film/StraightOuttaCompton'' fame), and reunites Gray with Theron and Statham, who he worked with on the 2003 ''Italian Job'' remake [[note]]Ironically ''Fast Fast'' is a reworked version of what was meant to be the sequel to said remake titled "The Brazilian Job". So this more or less brought things full circle[[/note]].

Not to be confused with the [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0046969/ 1955 film]] ''The Fast and the Furious'', directed by and starring John Ireland and produced by BMovie king Creator/RogerCorman, whose plot revolved around a man named Frank Webster (Ireland) breaking out of jail after being wrongly imprisoned for murder and hopping in a sports car to race the police to Mexico, though the fact that is one of the first films to have a feature-length ChaseScene may have had something to do with the 2001 film being given the same title.

* AnachronismStew / ContinuitySnarl: Even though the movies are all contemporary, with the third film happening after movies 4, 5, and 6, it creates a strange paradox when it comes to the contemporary models of cars seen in those movies. Either ''Tokyo Drift'' is set in the "future" of 2015 and everyone drives 2006 model cars or earlier for some strange reason or the rest of the series takes places in 2006 but people are driving models that won't be seen for another 3-9 years. ''Furious 7'' confirms that ''Fast and Furious'' is set in 2009, as the date on [[spoiler:Letty's fake tombstone]] says 2009, and Fast Five and Six take place immediately (mere days, months at the most) after it, meaning movies 4-6 for the most part are set in 2009-10, with ''The Fast and the Furious'' being set five years prior in 2004. ''Furious 7'' takes place a few years later, as Brian's son Jack is a preschooler, meaning the events of ''Tokyo Drift'' can't happen any earlier than 2012 or so.

* TwoKeyedLock: Cipher's plane has one for [[spoiler:Elena's]] cell, which initially prevents Dom from rescuing her since he's alone and the second lock is located in the cockpit. This is why it takes both [[spoiler:Deckard and Owen to rescue his son during the climax]].

** This also applies to [[spoiler: Dom as a whole by the end of the movie, considering that he ''did'' betray his team and put most of them on the international most wanted list and almost assists Cipher into starting a world war.]]

* NeverTrustATrailer: The trailer implies that after Dom's (apparent) FaceHeelTurn, he and Hobbs will have an epic rematch with Hobbs announcing that whether the old Dom is still in there or not, he ''will'' take him down, over a scene where an armored reflects bullets with a riot shield, as Hobbs fires a belt fed assault rifle. [[spoiler: Not only are these shots from completely different scenes, but the two never directly fight each other in the whole movie.]]

* DeathOfTheHypotenuse: [[spoiler:Elena is executed by Rhodes on Cipher's orders, just a short time after it's revealed that she gave birth to a child. This avoids another potential LoveTriangle and allows Dom to raise the child with Letty.]]



* FakingTheDead: Midway through the film, Dom seemingly shoots and kills [[spoiler:Deckard Shaw]]. Later on, when [[spoiler:Dom enacts his XanatosGambit against Cipher, Deckard is revealed to be alive, having faked his death so he could skydrop into Cipher's plane without being detected]].

* BlackMeansDeath: Dom's monologue about his dad's death makes it very clear that his Charger was originally supposed to represent this.



* DarknessEqualsDeath: Dom's monologue about his dad's death makes it very clear that his Charger was originally supposed to represent this.



^ DrivenToSuicide: Quite literally in this film. After Brian blows his cover, forcing Dom's family to flee, and indirectly causing Jesse to die, Dom, now with nothing but the knowledge of his impending arrest, opts to kill himself by racing the quarter mile one last time, planning to get hit by a train that awaits him on the other side. In the very same car his father died in, no less. [[BungledSuicide It doesn't work, obviously.]]
