* 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.

The first solo project of legendary game developer TimSchafer, ''FullThrottle'' 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.
