Added DiffLines:

* NoBackwardsCompatibilityInTheFuture: ''4'' doesn't allow data transfer from cards used in older versions, forcing players to make a new card from scratch. This was due to it being a complete overhaul instead of a simple upgrade.
** Downplayed with ''Zero''; only car data aren't transferred when you transfer old data from ''8 Infinity''.

Currently the latest installment of the series is ''Initial D Arcade Stage 8 Infinity'', which is also the last installment of the series.

Currently the latest installment of the series is ''Initial D Arcade Stage 8 Infinity'', Zero'', or ''Initial D Zero'' in short, which is also the last latest installment of the series.

Added DiffLines:

* ToneShift: Prior to ''Zero'', the games used artworks based off anime and manga's styles. However, ''Zero'' picks in the new style employed by the three-part ''New Initial D The Movie'' series. ''Zero'' also uses Japanese rock songs used in the movies, instead of usual Eurobeat as in previous installments and episodic anime series.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: Players used to other racing games will generally have a tough time getting used to ''Arcade Stage'''s gameplay, especially if they're fans of the simplified slides of RidgeRacer-esque games; it doesn't help that for a series famous for drifting, for the first few versions of the game cars technically can't even drift. The series itself exhibits this as well, with changes between versions ranging from slight differences in car handling, completely new physics engines, and even the location of the physical shift knob on the cabinet.

* JackOfAllStats: The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolutions and Subaru Impreza WRX STis are both newbie-friendly and can take on all tracks in any orientation decently... just don't expect to set course records outside the home courses.

* ExtremityExtremist: The AE86's forte is downhill racing. The RX-7's forte is uphill racing. Both the FC and FD RX-7s excel in dry conditions, while the GT-Rs dominate on wet pavement. The Celica GT-Four and other 4WDs that would normally understeer excel on Akina Snow, but can still be very difficult to handle.
