* CoolBike: The touring motorbike Ryo borrows from one of his neighbors towards the end of the first game, when he has to rush to the Harbor to rescue Nozomi, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XN48I9B0NWg complete with ass-kicking 80s style Heavy Metal music]]! Years later, in ''[[SegaSuperstars Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing]]'', this became Ryo's vehicle of choice.

* CoolCar: It's hard to resist to Ryo's ''forklift's'' unique charm. It even managed to be one of his vehicles when he starred years later on ''[[SegaSuperstars Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing]]''.

''Shenmue'' is a game developed by Sega-[=AM2=], released in 1999 for the UsefulNotes/{{Sega Dreamcast}}. A sequel, ''VideoGame/ShenmueII'', was later released in 2001 also for the Dreamcast and then later for the {{Xbox}}. ''Shenmue'' was originally meant to have more titles ranging from 4-7 over which the complicated story would be told, yet due to disappointing sales, {{Sega}}'s withdrawal from the console market and the high production costs needed to make Shenmue games, fans had to make do with only two games.

** Lots and lots of collectable toys are from well-known {{Sega}}'s franchises.

* LostForever: The online "Shenmue World" feature found on the ''Shenmue Passport'', as Sega's online servers shut down with the Dreamcast's cancellation. The Shenmue World provided a database containing detailed information on all characters and locations, detailed stats on various things found within each save file, allowed players to trade in winning cans and toys, along with official announcements and (perhaps a first) online leaderboards for the various mini-games.



* OldMaster: Several, in fact.

* BeatEmUp: You live in TheEighties, know martial arts, and have {{Bar Brawl}}s and fights against gang members, doing things like going to the streets and kick 7 asses all by yourself. ''Shenmue'' could as well be an affectionate homage to Sega's BeatEmUp games, like ''StreetsOfRage'' and ''GoldenAxe''.

* {{Badass}}: Ryo, Guizhang, Ren and Lan Di most prominently. Xiuying likewise, though she's not one to flaunt her badassery.

* HalfwayPlotSwitch: The first half is based mostly in the suburbs of Yokosuka and focuses on Ryo finding out about the Chi-You Men and their leader Lan-Di. Then he tries to find a ticket for Hong Kong in pursuit. The second half on the largest disc 3 is focused mainly on Ryo having a job on the docks of New Yokusuka Harbor and teaming up with Guizhang to fight the Mad Angels.

* CoversAlwaysLie: Lan Di and Shenhua barely appear in the main story or in brief abstract dreams. Chai or Nozomi being on the front would have been more accurate.

* EasyLevelTrick: Remaining in the starting location makes the 70-man battle a cakewalk, as opponents slowly trickle in and can be easily taken out before they're able to overwhelm you.

** BadassBiker: Ryo and Joy.
** BadassGrandpa: Many of the [[OldMaster Old Masters]] certainly qualify, even if they don't flaunt it.

* UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars: The tragic fate of the ''Shenmue'' series corresponds to the defeat of {{Sega}} by the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 during TheSixthGenerationOfConsoleVideogames, and the consequent withdrawal of the company from the console scene, going through a delicate readjustment.
** Ironically, ''Shenmue III'' is set to have a UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 (and PC) release, with Sega's blessing.
