->''Whenever I smell asphalt, I think of Maureen. That's the last sensation I had before I blacked out; that thick smell of asphalt. And the first thing I saw when I woke up was her face. She said she'd fix my bike. Free. No strings attached. I should've known then that things are never that simple. Yeah, when I think of Maureen, I think of two things: asphalt... and trouble.''\\

* AHandfulForAnEye: You can throw caustic fertilizer in the eyes of goggle-less bikers during the bike combat section.



* CreditsGag: Many. Top marks goes to listing the crew's cats, an ''entire'' "Special Biker Haiku Section", and toy bunnies scampering into the sunset.

* TreacherousAdvisor: Even ''Malcolm'' doesn't trust him and he's the one who hired him! So it comes as no shock when [[spoiler:Ripburger bludgeons the old guy to death with his cane and takes over his company by force.]]
* 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.

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.

* 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'').
