* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Hard to think otherwise on a setting with limos and minivans moving around on hovercraft fans, not to mention the two-seater police chopper which looks a bit too much like a repurposed dinghy.



* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Maureen rightfully inherits her father's company, and Ben and the Polecats are cleared, but Maureen must trade her free biker life for that of a restricted corporate executive...which also [[DidNotGetTheGirl costs her a budding relationship with Ben]], who is last seen leaving her and riding off on his bike.]]

Subverted when you realize that a minor MacGuffin of the setting is a photographic film roll.

''Full Throttle'' was a SCUMM based Creator/LucasArts adventure game released in 1995, set in a futuristic world somewhat reminiscent of ''Film/MadMax'' and focusing on the BadassBiker Ben Throttle, leader of the motorcycle gang "The Polecats". After unexpectedly making friends with Corley Motors CEO Malcolm Corley while resting at The Kickstand (a biker bar), he's taken out back by Corley's vice-president and confidant, Adrian Ripburger. Ripburger offers him and the Polecats a job to escort the limo to the annual shareholders meeting, but Ben declines out of pride. Faster than you can say "CorruptCorporateExecutive", Ripburger has Ben knocked out by his private thugs and chucks him in a dumpster, tricking the Polecats into following along with the escort. Ben attempts pursuit to make up for lost time, expecting an ambush for his gang, but finds his bike sabotaged and brutally wrecked on the highway. When he wakes up, he finds he's in a small mechanic's shop belonging to toaster repairman Maureen. She offers to fix his bike for free, as a favor, and also for the pleasure of working on a bike for the first time in a long while. But Ben quickly learns that things are not so simple, as his pursuit of Ripburger and his friendship with Maureen lead him into a greater conspiracy than he realized.

* InstantlyProvenWrong: Ben's sabotage Ripburger's presentation is perfectly timed to undermine what Ripburger's saying at the time: his "vision for Corley Motors" is the company burning away to nothing (as Ben sets the projector on fire) and his "more aggressive corporate strategy" is him beating Malcolm to death (as Ben switches out the slideshow with damning evidence).



* NowWhichOneWasThatVoice: A variation - voice talent is fully credited, but many of the minor characters are never actually named in-game, so we're left to try to guess (for instance) which of the Rottweilers is Blotch and which is Sizeable Bill.

* FelonyMisdemeanor: "He wants to start making minivans. You understand me? MINIVANS!"
** This is a lot less of a misdemenour if you remember that Corley Motors is the last dedicated motorcycle manufacturer in the country, and them switching to the family vehicle market would be a death sentence for biker culture.

The first solo project of legendary game developer Creator/TimSchafer, ''Full Throttle'' features more of Schafer's sharp wit and love of heavy metal. It also had full voice acting and at-the-time revolutionary 3D rendering for the biker sequences. In addition, it was the only [=Lucas Arts=] game to make extensive use of licensed music, in this case by "authentic biker" metal band The Gone Jackals. While mostly an adventure game, it also splices in action-based bike fights during the driving sequences. The game is also notoriously short, even by adventure game standards, able to be completed in 10 hours even if you ''don't'' hurry. The game still has a cult following to this day.
