* AwardBaitSong: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgKAFK5djSk See You Again]]|" from ''Furious 7''. Considering the song started at 100 on the Billboard Top 100, then became the tenth such song in history to peak at #1 [[note]]It only took five weeks to go from 100 to 1, breaking a record that had stood since ''1959''.[[/note]], the award baiting seems to have worked.

* AllAsiansKnowMartialArts: Played straight and subverted in the same scene in the sixth film when Jah (played by Indonesian actor Joe Taslim) wipes up the floor with Han (played by Korean actor Sung Kang). Jah is an experienced martial artist, while Han is not and just tries to use GoodOldFisticuffs. Also played straight with Kiet in ''7'', portrayed by famous Thai actor Tony Jaa.

Added DiffLines:

* GratuitousForeignLanguage: Owen's crew in ''6'' comes from many parts of the world, and the car chase scene at the beginning has the members talk to each other with their native languages. An example is the Indonesian Jah asking Vegh, "Hantam mereka," (which is subtitled "I need your help," but actually means "Hit them".)

* CaliforniaDoubling: Han's garage and the chase scene in ''Tokyo Drift'' are filmed in Los Angeles.
** The shooting for ''Fast Five'' took place in Puerto Rico. It's pretty easy to notice if you live in Puerto Rico too.
** Scenes from ''Fast Five'' were also shot in Atlanta.
** A lot of the London scenes in Fast Six were actually shot in Glasgow.
** The Caucasus Mountains rescue scene in ''7'' was filmed in Colorado's Pikes Peak, and some of the scenes in Los Angeles were actually shot in Atlanta.

Added DiffLines:

* TheSeriesHasLeftReality: It started out as a grounded crime drama where the only intense action the film had was the street racing scenes. The moment Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is introduced is when the movie became the over-the-top popcorn action franchise it's currently known for.

* RedOniBlueOni: Twice-convicted Dominic Toretto and former LAPD Officer/FBI Agent Brian O'Conner. Best reflected in their personal tastes in cars: Dom's American muscle vs. Brian's Japanese tuners.

* ReusableLighterToss: Rome tosses one on a henchmen's car after covering it with lighter fluid in the 2nd film and Dom tosses one on some cash in the 5th movie in the franchise. He can afford to buy a new one.
