** The platinum [[CosmeticAward Trophy]] for the [=PS4=] version of the 2015 reboot is titled "I Feel the Need...", which means that the franchise has finally (explicitly) referenced [[Film/TopGun the film]] that gave ''Need for Speed'' its name.

** The franchise title is inspired by a quote in ''Film/TopGun'': "I feel the needů the Need for Speed!"
*** In 2010's '''Hot Pursuit''', an [=F-14=] can be seen flying near the desert portion of the Memorial Highway.

* BilingualBonus: ''Road Challenge'' Hot Pursuit mode (the police chase mode) had an option to use 'local police'. This gave full localised voices for the dispatch and driver voice-overs. On the British circuit, the British Police talk with English accents. The French and German circuits go one step further - they even talk in the right language, not just a faux accent.

** Even further than that, ''III: Hot Pursuit''(and, by extension, ''High Stakes'') had some billboards advertsing certain raceways: Rusty Springs, and Autumn Valley. Both are levels from the first ''Need for Speed''.

** Even further than that, Most of the early first-generation ''Need for Speed'' games had call-backs to the first game.
*** The ''Coastal'' track of the first game had an area named "The Last Resort". ''Last Resort'' is the name of a track featured in ''II: Special Edition''. It even has a colour scheme similar to Coastal's map.
*** The ''Alpine'' track similarly had a big lake you cross through called the "Crystal Lake". The same lake constitutes a significant part of ''III: Hot Pursuit'''s track ''Country Woods'', and is mentioned in neighboring ''Hometown''.

* SequelGoesForeign: Need For Speed II went on for a World Tour aesthetic, contrasting with the first game.

* WorldTour: The biggest theme of ''Need for Speed II'', which had tracks set in eight different countries[[labelnote:Which?]]Norway, Australia, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Greece, Nepal, United States; Mexico only appears in the Special Edition[[/labelnote]]. The theme got revisited to a slightly lesser extent in ''High Stakes'', featuring seven countries[[labelnote:Which?]]United Kingdom(Scotland, England), Germany, United States, Canada, France, Spain, Italy; the last two are merely settings for Formula One-themed closed circuits[[/labelnote]].
