* EmptyRoomPsych: The loop at Silver Rock Canyon. Don't even bother with it on easy or you'll just fall upside down, and even then it's just wastes time.

* EmptyRoomPsych: The loop at Silver Rock Canyon. Canyon (regular). Don't even bother with it on easy or you'll just fall upside down, and even then it's just wastes time.
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] at sufficient speed levels - with the right timing of a NitroBoost, it's possible to use the loop as a ramp and jump into the tunnel on the other side, shaving off precious seconds from the lap
time.

* RubberBandAI: Computers (and other players) will have the best upgrades amongst the human players. It's helpful in multiplayer so you won't have to grind with everyone, but computers blasting you with specials every lap? Oy...

to:

* RubberBandAI: Computers Depends on the game mode:
** Played straight in multiplayer to some degree; computers
(and other players) will have the best upgrades amongst the human players. It's helpful in multiplayer so you won't have to grind with everyone, but computers blasting you with specials every lap? Oy...Oy...
** Thankfully averted in the campaign; AI racers have to collect items to fuel their weapons like the human players, cannot NitroBoost at will, etc.

* AlphaStrike: Getting all abilities to level 3 allows for one of these to be fired
* ArchEnemy: A mechanic no less. They'll always be in every race you're in with a nice little "Nemesis" sign above them.
** You even get bonus points for killing them.
* BonusLevel/ BrutalBonusLevel: Completing Redshift mode with all characters, you get to drive on Mars. Both tracks are littered with mega power ups and it's extremely common that people are taken out of the race.
%%* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Junkie [=XL=]'s work here is pretty cool.
* DifficultySpike: Redshift difficulty
* EmptyRoomPsych: The loop at Silver Rock Canyon. Don't even bother with it on easy or you'll just fall upside down, and even then it's just wastes time (unless you ''really'' want a power star).
* EarlyBirdCameo: Kutoo is seen just before the end of the intro cinematic. Also counts as a partial FreezeFrameBonus

* {{Expy}}: The relationship Kumiko and Ami have somewhat resembles that of Kasumi and Ayane from ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'': two girls from Japan, the first beloved and favoured by all, the second left in the shadows and thus full of spite for her sister. It also helps that their initials, K & A, match.
* TheFourGods: Byakko is painted on Ami's racer. Kumiko's racer is called "Kirin" (a common stand-in for the earth dragon of the middle).
* GermanicDepressives: Austrian driver Leah is sad and lonely after the death of her lover. German driver Max Steinhauer, her ArchEnemy, is depressed about getting too old and thus becoming unable to fulfill his life dream of becoming world champion.
* GermanicEfficiency: On the other hand, Leah's ice weapons and Max' military-grade gear are pretty powerful, at the cost of some speed.
* HarderThanHard: Elite difficulty, just below [[NintendoHard Redshift difficulty]].



* NintendoHard: Redshift difficulty can be ''insanely'' difficult when all racers throw their weapons at each other, so keeping in the race, much less winning, can border on LuckBasedMission.



* RemixedLevel: Any track with "2" at the end. You'll be going backwards with some paths reconfigured to fit the new route. Somehow, this makes the track more difficult...

to:

* RacingGame: This is a game with hovering crafts going on circular tracks at high speeds, and with unusual physics.
* RemixedLevel: Any track with "2" at the end. You'll be going backwards with some paths reconfigured to fit the new route. Somehow, Sometimes, this makes the track in question more difficult...difficult.



* TheFourGods: Byakko is painted on Ami's ship. Yes it looks badass why do you ask?

VehicularCombat: Each racer has a specific set of weapons, but they generally work about the same. Blue weapons are things like lasers and bombs, red weapons are a form of SuperPersistentMissile and yellow weapons are actually defence shields that absorb, and at sufficient level ''retaliate'' against, enemy shots.

* NeedsMoreLove: It might be a tad unoriginal, but it's still a rather solid game. Still, the fact that there are no [[GameFaqs FAQs]], walkthroughs or information about it online for it is still rather grating.

* SoundtrackDissonance: Brakenstowe Vale. The track is set in the English countryside, but the song makes you think ''{{Tron}}''.
