The first solo project of legendary game developer 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.

* NoNameGiven: Ben's last name is never given during the game. The [[AllThereInTheManual manual calls him Ben Whatsisname]], (though that's probably a joke) while TimSchafer [[WordOfGod says his last name is]] [[CharacterTitle Throttle]].

* SpiritualSuccessor: Tim Schafer's ''BrutalLegend'' bears some visual similarities to this one, though ''BrutalLegend'' is focused entirely on heavy metal. The style of the bikes and cars are almost identical across both games (though no hover cars in ''BrutalLegend'').

* GeniusBruiser: Several of those bikers are both very BadAss and ''frighteningly'' smart people, not least Ben.

Added DiffLines:

* 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). Subverted when you realize that a minor {{McGuffin}} of the setting is a photographic film roll.

* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:The crux of Ripberger's plan is his savage beating of Malcolm Corley. In the game's finale, Ripburger falls to his death when, after attempting to kill the last of the Corley family and failing miserably, the license plate (belonging to a huge truck) he's holding on to snaps off of the truck. The plate bears the company slogan, "Can't Beat A Corley".]]

* NoFairCheating: There's exactly 3 of one specific kind of biker on the road during one segment. You must figure out how to get their goggles. It involves using a specific weapon against them. If you do not use the weapon to defeat them (it's one of only 2 or three that actually work), you will not get their goggles. Pressing v counts as using something other than the weapon you're supposed to use.

You must figure out how to get Cavefish will only drop their goggles. It involves goggles if knocked out with the two-by-four - using a specific weapon against them. If you do not use the weapon to defeat them (it's one of only 2 or three that actually work), you will not get their goggles. Pressing v cheat counts as using something other than the weapon you're supposed defeating them with another weapon, which leads to use.them activating their SelfDestructMechanism and taking their goggles with them.
