* DeathFromAbove: Occurs a couple of times in the first game, namely when [[WackyWaysideTribe Tusken Raiders]] start [[ColdSniper sniping]] at the racers during the Boonta Eve Classic, and during a [[RocksFallEveryoneDies meteor shower]] on one of Oovo IV's tracks.

* RocksFallEveryoneDies: In the first game, there are a couple of points where racers have to avoid meteors and even entire rock formations falling on top of (or in some cases, ''[[DroppedABridgeOnHim underneath]]'') them during a race.

* MadeOfIron: Running into the rocks in Tatooine will only cause small damage to your podracer.

* MadeOfIron: Running into MadeOfIron / MadeOfPlasticine: ZigZagged in the rocks in Tatooine will only cause small first game. The game calculates damage to your podracer.pod's engines by how fast you're going when you hit something. The thing is, while your top speed and acceleration can be upgraded, your durability ''can't'', so there are situations where an un-upgraded pod can plow through, say, the rocks of the Boonta Training Course and take nothing but ScratchDamage, while a faster pod (or the same pod with speed upgrades) will end up taking noticeably more punishment through the same sequence.

* MythologyGag: The introductory music for ''Oovo IV'' sounds like an original sound cue, but it's actually a scrapped music cue from the intro of ''EmpireStrikesBack''.

** Your engines won't spontaneously burst into flame, either. Flying over lava [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything raises the same temperature gauge that's used while boosting]], so overusing your boost will make your engines even more susceptible to fire.

* FragileSpeedster:
** Occo Ninebar from ''Revenge''. Absolutely the easiest pilot to take out as an opponent, but he's very fast.
** Tzidik Wrantojo from ''Revenge'' is very much on the fragile end of the spectrum, but with the maneuverability to compensate.



* GlassCannon: Occo Ninebar from ''Revenge''. Absolutely the easiest pilot to take out as an opponent, but can be quite lethal if you know how to handle him as your own vehicle.



* JackOfAllStats: Anakin Skywalker is closest to being this.
** MagikarpPower: In the ''Game Boy Color'' version of the first game, Anakin's maximum speed would steadily improve as you won races (since the upgrade system from the console version couldn't be implemented). Since his other stats were pretty good on top of that (and everyone else's top speed is fixed), this means that he'll progress from being a decent beginner pod to undeniably the best in the game.
* LaughingMad/ VillainousBreakdown: Some of the racers display a habit of laughing maniacally as their own podracers crash and explode into a burning heap.

* JackOfAllStats: Anakin Skywalker is closest to being this.
** MagikarpPower: In the ''Game Boy Color'' version
Several racers have either entirely balanced / average stats, or mostly average stats with one stat slightly ahead of the first game, Anakin's maximum speed would steadily improve as you won races (since the upgrade system rest:
** Ebe Endocott: Average speed, but excellent handling.
** Ody Mandrell: A good "beginner" racer with generally average stats, but great acceleration. Returns in ''Revenge''.
** Teemto Pagalies: A "Jack of all trades" Pod with all around average stats. Returns in ''Revenge''.
** Fud Sang: Also a pod with all around average stats.
** Shrivel Braittrand
from ''Revenge'' is the console version couldn't be implemented). Since definitive example. All of his other stats were pretty good on top of that (and everyone else's top speed is fixed), this means that he'll progress from begin and max out as entirely equal except for one stat (repair) being a decent beginner pod to undeniably single point behind! His gameplay does bear this out, too, being an all-around solid craft that's not the best most exciting to fly, but won't let you down.
* JokeCharacter:
** Kraid Nemmeso from ''Revenge'' has such piss-poor speed and handling that he's incredibly hard to rack up knockouts with.
** Knire Dark from ''Revenge'', meanwhile, is weirdly drifty
in terms of handling and doesn't have the game.
speed or endurance to make his campaign much fun.

Added DiffLines:

* LightningBruiser: Sebulba: Has the highest top speed of all the racers, with above-average handling, steering and acceleration. Also has a "Flame Thrower" function which can be activated by tapping the R button twice. Likewise, both Episode 1 Sebulba and revamped Sebulba in ''Revenge'' have similar stats, but with the flamethrower function removed.

* LegacyCharacter: The Wan Sandage in ''Revenge'' is actually the original's son, as their species' lifespan is [[WeAreAsMayflies fairly short compared to humans]]. They use the same pod, however, and are thus, for all intents and purposes, the same character.
