* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The original game is a far cry from the later installments, and looks like a glorified demo in comparison. There were no characters to choose from besides a male/female model that look similar, a limited handful of boards, no competition mode, no competitors, terrible hit detection (with the players sometimes bouncing out of control between walls in tight spaces if they hit the sides), no training modes and bugs galore (the characters can disappear for a couple seconds while jumping). Notably, it was also the only one of the first four games not to receive a Playstation Greatest Hits release.

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: ''2'' has a couple things: The game is rated "K-A" (the precursor to "E"), but manages to feature a music track with the words "damn" and "bitchin'", and a secret code gives Cindy a dominatrix-style outfit.

* EndlessGame: Even if you get through 100 tricks in Master Big Air, earning the best title, the game will keep throwing instructions at you until you fail.

* FakeSkill: In ''2'' and ''3'', the player can rack up insane {{Combos}} on qualifying jumps by holding the crouch button and a directional key while mashing buttons, causing the characters to do all sorts of insane tricks.

Added DiffLines:

* DiscOneNuke: The Gray Alien in ''2'' has better stats than all the human characters, can be unlocked near the beginning of the game with enough practice, and makes several of the jumps and races much easier.
