* DramaticIrony: Bunta makes it a point during ''Second Stage'' several times that [[spoiler:the Trueno's original engine is close to the end of its life]], a fact that he decidedly does ''not'' tell Takumi. Takumi goes on to race against Kyouichi unaware that [[spoiler:the Trueno's 4AGE engine is about to blow]], the race interspersed with [[spoiler:shots of the Trueno's engine and Bunta's commentary on the soon-to-be-gone engine and the engine swap that he has planned.]]

Takumi Fujiwara is an average eighteen-year-old in the Gunma Prefecture with an average part-time job as a gas station attendant and a not-so-average hand in his family's tofu business. Ever since he was thirteen -- five years before he was even qualified for a driver's license -- he has been helping out his father Bunta by delivering tofu on the latter's Toyota [=AE86=] ("Sprinter Trueno" in Japan, "Corolla GT-S" in America) to a hotel at the summit of Mt. Akina every morning at 4:00 AM, but with a challenge: he must negotiate the slopes and curves without spilling a drop of water from a cup placed on the dashboard.

* DarkerAndEdgier: General tone-wise, while the anime and manga can have some dark elements around it, the ''Legend'' anime film series is a darker retelling of the first parts. The films also feature [[AutobotsRockOut more-serious rock music]] instead of more-upbeat Eurobeat music. (see RealSongThemeTune below)

* SmokingIsCool: In the First and Second Stages of the anime, Bunta and virtually every racer except [[KidHero Takumi]] and [[NiceGirl Mako]] smoked. Almost every episode featured a shot of someone smoking, occasionally coupled with a shot of them throwing the cigarette on the ground and stomping on it. From the Third Stage on smoking was shown much less; it was mostly just Bunta at that point.

His brother Keisuke's aura is still weak. But that Eight-Six was emitting a strong aura. If he represents Akina, then the winner is still up in the air."''
