Despite everything, the series was very well received, even to this day, with ''Jet Set Radio'' considered to be one of the Dreamcast's defining games, and ''Jet Set Radio Future'' being considered one of the Xbox's best exclusives. The games have gotten plenty of love from the ''SegaSuperstars'' crossover games, especially ''All-Stars Racing'', which features nothing but ''Future'' representation. The game was also featured in Anime/HisCooolSeHaGirls in late 2014.

Added DiffLines:

* VoiceOfTheResistance : Professor K through the titular radio station.
* VolumetricMouth : [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/jetsetradio/images/b/b5/Dj.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20101220021814 Professor K]] has a pretty big mouth.


Added DiffLines:

* WhiteGangBangers : Some of the gangs qualify. Poison Jam are a good example, and they also worked for an Asian boss for a while. The main characters are a mix of ethnicities, including White, Black, Japanese and possibly other kinds of Asian (Beat is Korean, at least according to a popular {{Fanon}} theory).
* WickedHeartSymbol : The Love Shockers' graffiti and symbol are heart symbol-based.


Added DiffLines:

* YouALLLookFamiliar : Not only there are a limited number of pedestrian designs, but each pedestrian of a particular design exclaims the exact same thing when bumped into. Every. Single. Time. One level features dozens of women in identical orange jumpsuits in rows (presumably doing morning exercises or something) that all exclaim "Ah! He touched my butt!" in comically high voices.

* EdibleThemeNaming: Probably unintentional, but some of the rudies have names like Beat(beet), (bubble)Gum, Corn and Garam(Malay for salt)

* RegionalBonus: The North American release of ''JGR'' contains an extra mission, involving frogs [[spoiler:from Poison Jam]] in the Garage, sandwiched between the two run-throughs of Tokyo-to.

* ShabbyHeroesWellDressedVillains: In both games, the normal/modified clothes of the GG's and other gangs are contrasted with the {{Elite Mook}}s of Golden Rhinos, dressed with [[TheMenInBlack black suits and ties]], and the BigBad Gouji Rokkaku, which is a ManOfWealthAndTaste.



* SympatheticInspectorAntagonist: Captain Onishima (Hayashi in ''JSRF'').

* GeniusSweetTooth: The Noise Tanks are noted to have sworn off health food, subsisting entirely on artificial chemicals and sweeteners.

* GeniusSweetTooth: The Noise Tanks are noted to have sworn off health food, subsisting entirely on artificial chemicals and sweeteners. [[spoiler:Subverted in that not only their diet contributed to their defeat, DJ Professor K also vaguely implies in the ending that they abandoned it in favor of fruits and veggies. ("The Noise Tanks are in repair.")]]

* NiceHat: In both games, Corn/Tab's eyes are hidden beneath his hat. It even gets some impressive-for-2002 physics added onto it in ''Future''.
** As a gang, the Immortals' gimmick is that they're [[DashinglyDapperDerby bowler hat]]-wearing mummies.

* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: The final boss of ''JGR'' converts the roof of his office tower into a giant turntable. To defeat him, you must (Anyone?) grind rails to reach the adjoining towers and (Bueller? Bueller?) spray graffiti over his occult symbols.

Added DiffLines:

** Guitar Vader's "Super Brothers" is apparently about Franchise/{{Mario}} and Luigi. The very first line talks about how they're going to [[SaveThePrincess "rescue]] [[GratuitousEnglish the]] [[DamselInDistress Peach"]].

''Jet Set Radio'' (originally known as ''Jet Grind Radio'' [[MarketBasedTitle in the NTSC U/C region]]) is a platforming/skating game released by Creator/{{Sega}} for the UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast in 2000, developed by Smilebit, who were made up of previous AM-6 employees, responsible for the ''VideoGame/PanzerDragoon'' series. The game is centered around [[RollerbladeGood roller-blading]] [[GangBangers street gangs consisting of teens and young adults called rudies]], who battle for turf by spraying graffiti around the streets of [[UsefulNotes/{{Tokyo}} Tokyo-to]]. Meanwhile, the rudies' culture is under attack by an evil corporate conglomerate called the Rokkaku Group which seeks to homogenize the city and whose [[CorruptCorporateExecutive leader]] seeks to take over the world through demonic means. The game [[TropeMaker pioneered the use of]] CelShading to create cartoonish characters and backgrounds using 3D polygon graphics. The game is also remembered for its [[AwesomeMusic/JetSetRadio eclectic soundtrack]].
