** Also from ''Furious 7'', Dominic and Deckard's first encounter in LA. Deckard leads Dom to an underground parking lot, and then they crash their cars into each other head-on (with Deckard having the advantage) and Dom is about to have a street fight with Deckard, only for Deckard to pull out his gun and mockingly asks "You think this is a street fight?". [[spoiler: In the climax, also in LA, it is now Dom who leads Deckard to the top floor of a parking building, with them crashing into each other in their cars again, only with their positions reversed (and Dom has the advantage this time). Deckard, who runs out of ammo, picks up a metal bar to fight Dom, but Dom pulls out his shotgun and asks [[IronicEcho "You think this is a street fight?"]] Only this time, Dom actually fires his shotgun into the air and proceeds to fight with him man-to-man.]]

The first film, ''The Fast and the Furious'', starring Creator/VinDiesel and Creator/PaulWalker, was directed by Rob Cohen and released in 2001. Brian O'Conner (Walker) is an undercover LAPD officer looking into a string of highway semi-truck hijackings, which he suspects is linked to ex-convict Dominic "Dom" Toretto (Diesel) and his car shop crew. Brian works to get into their inner circle and comes to respect Dom for his sense of loyalty, which causes problems when his superiors start questioning where Brian's allegiance lies.

* CarCushion: In Furious 7, Hobbs and Elena land together on a car roof when falling from great height. Of course both characters remain unharmed.

* MundaneMadeAwesome: The first scene where we see Brian in ''Furious 7'': his car's engine burning with fury with himself looking dead serious, apparently competing for yet another race, and he steps on the gas...to finish parking his car in front of Dom's house.

* BadassInANiceSuit: In ''Furious 7'' the whole crew has to dress up to get into a billionaire's party. It might be the only time in the whole series Dom isn't in a t-shirt and jeans.

* 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 Letty's fake tombstone says 2009, and Fast Five and Six and Seven take place immediately (mere days, months at the most) after it, meaning the movies for the most part are set in 2009, 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 Han's death (and the concurrent events of ''Tokyo Drift'') can't happen any earlier than 2012 or so.
