* WideOpenSandbox: [[TropeCodifier Started this]] for {{Racing Game}}s; the first game was a PS2 launch title. Part of the fun for players was being able to use "joyride" in the first game, allowing two players to fart around New York or London however they pleased.

* AllegedCar: The starter car in both the first Midnight Club game and the second one. In the first game, you start off in a pitifully slow taxi, complete with dents and graffiti all over it. In the second game, it does get a little better. However, you still start with one of the slowest cars of the game without any nitrous.

In the second game, it does get a little better. However, you still start with one of the slowest cars of the game without any nitrous. Later in the fourth game you get to choose from one of three used cars sitting in the parking lot across from the bus stop you arrive at complete with dents, missing hubcaps and primered, replacment body panels.
** Averted in the third game as your reputation for racing and connections with a local mechanic merit you the purchase of one of six vehicles he has for sale, with some additional spending money for minor modifications if you purchase his least expensive car.



* {{EMP}}: A special ability in ''LA''.

to:

* {{EMP}}: A special An equipable offensive power-up in the multiplayer portions of ''2''.
** Promoted to an unlockable
ability in the main career in ''LA''.



* OptionalTrafficLaws: Usually, but if you break the road laws with the cops nearby, they'll go into HotPursuit. ''Midnight Club II'' only had cops preset in races.

* CoolCar: The point of the game.
* CoolBike: Motorcyles are available starting in the second game. The best bikes offer performance on par with exotic sports cars at a fraction of the price.



* DudeWheresMyRespect: No matter how well you do in races, the A.I. characters in ''L.A.'' will still treat you like crap.

* OldSaveBonus: If the player has a save file from ''Smuggler's Run'' on the PS2's memory card, the Baja Buggy becomes playable in the first game in the series. (Obviously only applies to the games produced for PS2, as opposed to ''LA'' which is for PS3.)

** Interestingly, another manga and game series inspired by that group, ''WanganMidnight'' (specifically its ''Maximum Tune'' spin-off) has a shout out to ''Los Angeles''. One of the available aero-kits for the Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 in that game was nearly identical to one of the aero-kits for the same car in ''Los Angeles''.

** The first game starts with the player character driving a taxi, which is a joke reference to LucBesson's Film/{{Taxi}} series.

* ShoutOut: The title of this series is a reference to the Japanese street racing team [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mid_Night_Club Mid Night Club]]. In the late 90's, they were infamous for their high-speed runs down Tokyo's Wangan expressway (which is why the "Wangan" kanji is also included in the title).
