* JerkWithAHeartofGold: Keisuke Takahashi. At one point in 4th Stage, he spots his prospective opponent broken down by the side of the road. He pulls over, berates and insults her for not realizing something was wrong sooner, and drives off... then returns a little while later with a full parts van to fix the car for her.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The cheating Lan Evo team in Saitama has this happen to them twice. First, they sabotage Keisuke's practice run with an oil slick, causing him to crash his RX-7. During Takumi's race against them, the Evo driver's front wheel catches some leftover oil in the road, causing him to lose traction and giving Takumi a window to pass him. Later, their plan to hire a Bosozoku gang to beat up Project D as revenge backfires when it's revealed that, not only is the gang from Gunma province, and are big fans of Project D, but the gang's leader also used to run with Keisuke's old crew back when he was still a delinquent. For this, Project D is allowed to leave unmolested while the Evo team are left to the wrath of their own hired muscle.

* MirrorMatch: What Takumi's battle with [[spoiler:Shinji]] in ''Final Stage'' essentially boils down to. [[spoiler:Shinji]] drives a stock AE86, and has been driving the pass every night for many years, to the point of mastery. Like Takumi, he doesn't see the appeal in racing at first, and like Takumi, he has to be persuaded to participate by the local racers. In short, Takumi is up against himself at the start of the series.
