* ChronicallyCrashedCar: Devil Z was involved in ''at least'' a dozen fatal crashes before Akio got his hands on it and Akio manages to chrash it several times early on in the series. Eventually the car requires a full body work over due to all the damage it has received over the years.



* RetiredBadass: Jun Kitami, who used to be a professional race driver, and he originally built and tuned the Devil Z. He quit the tuning business when racers began dying like flies in many of the cars he tuned. He came back out of retirement when the Devil Z was restored by Akio.

* YouAllLookFamiliar: Driving sequences frequently feature the same cars on the highway. In the arcade, it's yellow cars and vans. In the anime, look for taxi cars, pink Honda Fits, and white Toyota Celsiors.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The circumstances of the Devil Z rejecting its drivers after the passing of the original owner. Akio could've easily avoided the construction barriers but the car apparently kept going forward against Akio's will, no matter how much he denies it. Over time however, the car eventually accepts its driver and could do more other being the fastest.

** Many rivals tend to end their challenges this way, whether its for personal reasons (like Hiramoto) or simply to forfeit a losing battle (like Kijima). Noted exceptions are Kuroki and Harada, who both blew their engines.
