* {{Leitmotif}}: Heavily used in ''First Stage'', where every racer has a recognizably different theme that plays when they're [[ThemeMusicPowerup racing seriously]], usually relevant to their personality. For example, AwesomenessByAnalysis driver Ryosuke has a theme featuring the sound of keyboard-buttons and dot-matrix printouts combined with an electronic voice, while ruthless {{Jerkass}} Shingo has a theme that opens with an EvilLaugh. In later Stage, this is mostly dropped in favor of a more generic Eurobeat soundtrack, but is still present here and there, notably with Hoshino of the Purple Shadow in ''Fourth Stage'', whose theme is a remix of Takeshi's from ''First Stage'', due to the same type of car he drives (a Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 to Takeshi's Nissan Skyline GT-R R32).

This is also notable with Rin "Shinigami" Hojo, whose NightmareFuel-inducing driving style and DarkIsEvil aesthetics match well with a theme featuring an OminousPipeOrgan.

Compare and contrast the ''WanganMidnight'' franchise. Not to be confused with [[Manga/OnePiece the Will of D]].

* FamilyFeud: Between the Fujiwaras and the Kogashiwas, though it seems to mostly come from the latter.

* [[AdaptationDyeJob Adaptation Paint Job]]: Bunta's Subaru Impreza WRX [=STi=] is supposed to be painted "Cool Gray Metallic", just like [[LifeImitatesArt Shigeno's own Impreza]]. It appears as such in the manga, the first 3 versions of ''Arcade Stage'', and the Sony PlayStation2 port ''Special Stage''. When the car makes its anime debut in ''Fourth Stage'', the Impreza is wearing the "Sonic Blue Mica" paint, and said color becomes the default paint job for the vehicle in subsequent games released from that point on.

** With the New Initial D movie, this is even more obvious as more modern cars and technology appear in the background, including 5th Generation HiAces [[note]]introduced in 2004[[/note]] replacing the older HiAces as support vans for Red Suns and Ryosuke's computer having a flatscreen monitor while they all still use 199X era cars.
