Added DiffLines:

* PurposefullyOverpowered: The Dragon Board in ''2.'' Your reward for beating the hardest challenge in the game (and that's saying something) is the ultimate power trip: A board with perfect speed and trick stats (if abysmal turning). Fly across every track in the game and revel in the Dragon Board's ridiculousness.

* LetsPlay: One was done by {{CrazyCommentaries}}, which tried adding the interpretation that Tommy (the guy with the bandaged nose) was actually Tommy Pickles from {{Rugrats}} and Nancy (the blonde-haired girl) was actually Angelica.

''Snowboard Kids'' is an action racing series produced by {{Atlus}} and Racjin debuting in 1997 on the Nintendo 64. While it didn't make much of a splash compared to [[VideoGame/MarioKart similar first-party titles]], the cute atmosphere and unique character designs were part of what helped it gain enough recognition to spawn two sequels - ''Snowboard Kids 2'' and ''Snowboard Kids Plus'' (the latter released [[NoExportForYou only in Japan]] for the Playstation).

* NoExportForYou: While ''Plus'' was considered for an English release, it eventually got quietly canned.



* StillbornFranchise: Sadly so. What really makes this surprising is that the first game sold ''a million copies'', an impressive feat for a third party game on the N64. It even ended up being included in Nintendo's Player's Choice games.

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Good ''lord'', where do we start...the first game gets ridiculous by the last few courses due to unfair AI advantages and [[GameBreaker Shinobin]]. This is toned down in the second game, but Expert Mode brings back the omniscient AI just to taunt you.

Added DiffLines:

* PersonalSpaceInvader: The Ghosts, once deployed, will zero in on the opposing racer in the highest position and harass him or her. During this time, the afflicted character's top speed is halved. This can be stacked up to three times.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: Believe it or not, all of the characters in the above picture are only 10 years old. This "design quirk" is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in Ruby's bio, and [[AvertedTrope averted]] in the DS game.
