* DevelopersForesight: The developers of the DS version gave Taj a rather... ''unique'' piece of dialogue if you talk to him while playing as him. The piece of dialogue in question has a tone of utter confusion.



* SongsInTheKeyOfPanic: It doesn't matter what level you're playing, the music ''will'' speed up once you hit the final lap.

Added DiffLines:

* DroughtLevelOfDoom: The first race against Wizpig is devoid of any balloons, limiting the player to masterful use of the boosters for a chance at beating him.

* RubberBandingAI: Likely present elsewhere, but a very notable [[InvertedTrope inversion]] is present during the rematch against Tricky. If you're falling behind, Tricky will slow to a snail's pace for a few seconds ''right before the finish line,'' allowing the player to pass him if you're close enough.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Acrofatic}}: Despite being a FatBastard and a ''literal pig,'' Wizpig is actually faster on foot than on any vehicle.


Added DiffLines:

* DickDastardlyStopsToCheat: Smokey and Bubbler shoot out projectiles[[note]]Fireballs and mines/bubbles, respectively[[/note]] that would only slow you down if you were ''behind'' them. Tricky also invokes this trope by toppling massive pillars with vibrations from his running.


Added DiffLines:

* BeamSpam: Spaceport Alpha and ''especially'' Wizpig's second race. In the former, there's one corridor where you're running headfirst into a volley of lasers coming from the far end of it. As for the latter...''Jesus Christ.'' Damn near everything's shooting lasers at you, from spaceships scattered about, to the sky, to ''floating rocks.'' There's even one room, like in Spaceport Alpha, where lasers are pretty much everywhere. If you don't grab the forcefield powerup that appears just before it, you are ''almost certainly'' taking a hit.

Added DiffLines:

* SoreLoser: How does Wizpig take his first loss? By throwing a tantrum immediately afterwards, and then showing up at the subsequent [[DancePartyEnding victory party]] to fuck it up, even remotely controlling his ship to invoke BulletDancing on the cast!


Added DiffLines:

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Barring Bluey, the bosses will get a head-start on you at some point.

Added DiffLines:

* InfinityMinusOneSword: Taj and Wizpig, when they're unlocked as playable racers. Despite their stats suggesting they have turning even worse than Krunch, they actually handle reasonably well. Of course the game must be beaten one or two times respectively to unlock.

** Oddly enough, Diddy Kong, despite wering red, is ''not'' an example, being more of a middle-ground type than anything.

Added DiffLines:

* RedOnesGoFaster:
** Three of the four bosses are red, and they're no slouches when it comes to speed.
** Drumstick drives a red car, T.T. has a red body, and both are faster than the rest of the playable set.
