* FakeLongevity: The first game completely recycles all of the first three circuits for circuits 4 through 6, only with new bosses, the tracks in reverse order from their counterparts, and with all the courses mirrored.

** [[RobotGirl Gypsy]] [[AcePilot Moth]] is just plain-out faster than you [[note]] [[MyRulesAreNotYourRules Yes, even if you're using Rocket Racer's car set]] [[/note]]. You ''can't'' keep up with her without turbo powerups, or using other powerups to slow her down. Other bosses may have this, but with them, skilful driving can keep up. Against Gypsy, even that's not enough.

** May or may not be a [[SubvertedTrope Subversion]], as [[GuideDangIt turbo powerups also let you ignore friction while they're active]], and if you watch carefully, this ''is'' what she's doing (at least sometimes). [[DoubleSubversion However, this doesn't change the fact that some circuit racers are just plain-out faster than you.]]

** Some of the [[LEGOAdventurers Adventurers Dino Island]] racetracks in ''LEGO Racers 2'' pass through a volcano, and there's also a river of lava on [[LEGOLifeOnMars Mars]] and Xalax. If you fall in, you are teleported to safety. If you get hit by a fireball, your car might lose a brick, but that's it.

* SelfImposedChallenge: Over the years, players have come up with many ways to play the first game to spice up the challenge, some of which can be found on the Website/YouTube channel of [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDfChE4XN95shYayNx5Q-XQ Piotr Garschin Poland]]. These include [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSdkKshDcKc helping a specific NPC racer win the circuit]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNfrnj-l4Vw winning a circuit with the fewest points possible]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPEo49WCvKQ winning a circuit without using power-ups]], and even [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dElYL1O_ecU winning a circuit while driving backwards]].

* FollowTheLeader: The first ''LEGO Racers'' game is quite similar to ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing's'' gameplay engine, and even the power-ups. But besides that, it's unique with courses, characters, and a build option.
** Many of the PowerUp abilities in ''LEGO Racers 2'' closely mirror those of ''Videogame/MarioKart''. This is most blatant with the ninja Power-Up, which turns your car invisible (preventing the homing missile from homing in on you) and gives you the ability to steal other players' Power-Ups, just like the Boo Power-Up from the ''Mario Kart'' series![[note]]Unlike the Boo Power-Up, though, the ninja Power-Up does not disable collisions, and you actually have to physically collide with another player in order to steal their Power-Up.[[/note]]



* PowerupLetdown: Yellow + one white in the first game is...arguably worse than yellow with no white. Yellow with no white lays down an oil slick that causes the player who comes in contact with it to spin out; it stays for a fairly long period of time, so if you're a little ahead, there's still a chance that a player could run into it. A yellow and a white throws a stick of dynamite behind you that does the same as most projectiles, sending the player flying upward and slowing them down. The problem is that it works more like a backwards projectile rather than a trap, meaning that if there's nobody immediately behind you, it's a complete waste.
