* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Almost every film, even the most recent ones. In particular, the first three films clearly fall into early zero years, especially the first film because of the soundtrack and fashion trends in the clothes of the characters. On the other hand, the strong emphasis on high-tech, techno-thriller and action's scene mixed martial arts in the last three films clearly allows them to be identified as created in tenths.

*** In ''Fate'', the last few syllables of Hobbs' haka for the Red Dragons may sound familiar for anyone who's seen ''Disney/{{Moana}}''.

* BreakawayPopHit: Not many $1 billion grossing movies can claim to have spawned a hit song bigger than the film itself: ''Furious 7'' can, thanks to Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again." It reached the point where "See You Again" became the only thing related to ''Furious 7'' to get a Kids' Choice Awards nomination in 2016.

** Both Toretto (Creator/VinDiesel) and Vince (Matt Schulze) were said to be 24 when ''The Fast and The Furious'' has been made. Vin Diesel was 34, Matt Schulze was 29 by then.
** Well, Schulze was still in his twenties at least. Diesel, however, passed pretty well for 24-year old Toretto. (Many have jokingly attributed [[OneOfUs Diesel's]] younger appearance compared to his real age to his love for ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''.) However, the actors for Tokyo Drift easily stand out as people older than their character's ages, Dawson Casting at its damn-near worst.

* MarketBasedTitle: Many foreign countries have regular NumberedSequels instead of the word removal - only "Fast" or "Furious" - they got in English (at times with TheForeignSubtitle - for instance, ''Fast Five'' is known in many countries as ''Fast and Furious 5: Rio Heist''). Likewise, ''Furious 7'' is known as just ''Fast and Furious 7''. However, all the films in the series so far has been released in Japan under the title ''Wild Speed'' instead.
* RealitySubtext: Since Walker died midway through Furious 7, the film had to be rewritten to accommodate it. The films tagline is "One Last Ride", there's a scene at [[spoiler:Han's]] funeral where [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness the normally lighthearted Roman grimly tells Brian he can't take any more funerals]][[note]]The scene in question was filmed way before Walker's death, and was simply meant to be part of the group's vendetta towards Deckard before being retooled into a send-off[[/note]], the recurring subplot about how Brian can't afford to go haring off around the world and risking his life when he has a family to take care of.

* StuntCasting: One of the franchise's first selling points was the inclusion of known rappers in the cast, from Ja Rule in the first to Ludacris in the second and Lil' Bow Wow in the third - but now it looks to be subverted as Ludacris' staying power easily beats out all the others.

''Fast Five'' also dabble in this, adding Dwayne Johnson as a supporting (but important) character that eventually became one of the protagonists in later films.



** Certain versions of the DVD, as well as Blu-Ray copies of the original have what was going to be an alternate ending. Brian is dropped off at the Toretto home, now for sale, to find Mia packing up the garage. Mia tells him to go, before Brian reveals he quit his job as a cop and was hoping for one more chance, before cutting to a wide shot of LA. Given how the following sequel paints Brian as running away to Miami for a new start, it would have been interesting to see the current films if the alternate ending was used.

** While part seven was in production, Universal hoped to get to at least ten movies, and ''Furious 7'' would even have another SequelHook to widen the series' scope. Then Paul Walker died, and the movie had to be rewritten to give some sort of closure, particularly to Walker's character Brian.
*** Nevertheless an eight film is on its way and two further are planned to be released in 2019 and 2021.
