*** In the iOS version, a poster for ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'' can be seen in the garage. In the [[AndroidGames Android version]], it's the cover art of [[AlanWake Alan Wake's American Nightmare.]]

** In addition to VideoGame/DukeNukem in the reboot, there's [[VideoGame/{{Minigore}} John Gore]], [[AlanWake Barry Wheeler]], and [[VideoGame/AngryBirds Mighty Eagle]]. There's even a guest ''vehicle'' too: [[VideoGame/DukeNukemForever The Mighty Foot!]] In keeping with its InformedAbility of being virtually indestructible in ''Forever'', the Foot has more armor upgrades then even the Deliverator and can easily shrug off the heaviest beatdowns in harder races. Duke is absent from the [[AndroidGames Android]] and PC versions, with his "Duke Match" event replaced by "Tex Match" and the Mighty Foot [[PaletteSwap reskinned]] as the "Bravestar".

A [[http://www.remedygames.com/games/deathrally reboot]] of the game was released for [[IOSGames iOS]] on March 31, 2011. New features include an optional behind-the-car chase cam, several new weapons, [[CosmeticAward Achievements]] and "challenge" events, which enforce certain restrictions such as every racer using the same car. A free [[AndroidGames Android OS]] version was released in May 2012. It removed DukeNukem as a GuestFighter but allowed the player to purchase new weapons, cars, tracks and special [[{{Powerup}} power-up]]s [[BribingYourWayToVictory with real money]]. A PC version was released via UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} on August 3, 2012, featuring updated graphics, more special races, extra paint jobs for most of the vehicles and additional game mechanics such as the ability to hold {{Nitro boost}}s in reserve, CoopMultiplayer and the "[[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney Shadow Man]]".

* AKA47: Except with cars instead of guns. In the original game, the Vagabond (Volkswagen Beetle), Shrieker (Pontiac Trans-Am), and Wraith (Porsche 911) are all recognizable real cars, and the [[SnowCrash Deliverator]] is based on the [[Anime/SpeedRacer Mach 5]]. In the reboot, the Dervish is a Hummer H3 and the Shrieker is a Mustang.

*** From VideoGame/DukeNukem (the player can select him as the player's portrait, and there are various one-liners such as "Let's Rock" and "Hail To The King, Baby") to NeedForSpeed.

* AwesomeMcCoolname: Several of the opponent drivers, some with XtremeKoolLetterz, and all the available vehicles. There aren't many things that can describe a man racing in a muscle car as gloriously as Dark Ryder and his Shrieker, for example.



* RatedMForManly: The game has Duke Nukem in it. That should be reason enough.



* TryingToCatchFightingMeDirty: Everyone does fight dirty. Ramming opponents to put them off-course or stick them into is especially common. You can chose not to, but don't expect an easy race.



* AwesomeMcCoolname: '''Everyone''', excepted for Farmer Ted and Bogus Bill. The reigning champion must be Dark [[XtremeKoolLetterz Ryder]], though.
** They also look suspiciously like PornNames.
** Also, every car has a badass name. Even the one you start with. The Deliverator has the nicest one, because well... it delivers.



* RuleOfCool: Everything is cool in this game.
