* SuicideBySea: More like suicide by freight train. In the 2001 movie, it's implied that Dom was planning on dying at the end of his race with Brian. This is also supported earlier on in the film when Dom mentions that he'd rather die than go back to prison, and when Dom implies that driving his Charger would end up killing him the same way it killed his father.

** The truck heist in the climax of the first movie reveals which characters did what during the truck heist in the opening scene. Dom drives in front of the truck. Vince fires the harpoon to break in the cab and knock out the driver. Leon and Jesse surround the truck, preventing it from moving. And Letty drives under the trailer bed to distract the driver.

** Before the second heist in the 2001 film, Dom tells Letty that he had a dream where they were in Mexico. The post-credits scene reveals that Dom's dream did come true, just not in the way that he envisioned it. He arrives in Mexico as a fugitive.

*** This was retconned as a novelty stunt in later installments of the franchise. One of the auditioning drivers in ''2 Fast'' accidentally gets knocked under a tractor trailer, but is crushed under the wheels. This also happens in ''Furious 7'' when Brian tries to evade an attack drone.

** The climax sequence in the first film mirrors the opening sequence, revealing each character's role in Dom's heists. This scene implies that this was [[spoiler: Letty's]] signature move.

** Done in the first film during the first truck heist. The truck and the robbers are fast approaching a construction site. One car pulls in front of the truck, one pulls in behind, and the last one pulls ''under'' the truck. During the last heist, [[spoiler: Letty]] does this for some plan [[spoiler: only to be run off the road.]]
** The second film has a part where one of the auditioning drivers accidentally gets knocked under a moving tractor trailer. Unfortunately, he doesn't make it all the way and his Mustang gets crushed under the wheels of the trailer.
** Brian gets to do it one last time in ''Furious 7'' to avoid the Predator drone.

** 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.]]
