* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Elissa Steamer, the lone female pro skater up until ''Underground'', not counting created characters (and even then, ''2'' cannot create female characters, although ''2X'' can). Averted by unlocking certain characters (Private Carrera in the first two games, replaced by Trixie on Dreamcast and ''2X'', Demoness in ''3'', and Daisy in ''4''). ''Underground'' has no female pedestrians, playing the trope straighter; but continues to allow female created characters.

* TongueOnTheFlagpole: In the Canada level of ''Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3'', there is an objective to help a guy called Chuck (specifically, "Get Chuck Unstuck") who has got his tongue stuck on a pole and is being taunted and having snowballs thrown at him by two bullies. This being a skateboarding game, what's the solution? [[ThatsGottaHurt Grind onto his tongue.]] Turns into a FunnyBackgroundEvent when he spends the rest of the time running around the level screaming in pain.

** ''Underground 2'' was ported to the UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable as ''Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix'' and includes four extra stages. These four stages would reappear in ''American Wasteland'' as well (although Atlanta is only available to players playing the "Collector's Edition" of the game).

** CanadaEh: Canada in ''[=THPS3=]'' (Great North Woods variety) ''[=THUG=]'' has a stage in Vancouver, but it's not really under the effect of the trope.

** ThirtySecondsOverTokyo: Tokyo in ''[=THPS3=]'', which looks a lot like an AmazingTechnicolorBattlefield (with the added flavor of the game having "Pulse", by Japanese noise-rock band Mad Capsule Markets, in the soundtrack). Subverted with Kyoto in ''[=THUG2=] Remix''/''[=THAW=]'' because it favors the urban look instead of the traditional side of the city (though it does have a Godzilla-like footprint which serves as a pool...).

** Starting with ''Proving Ground'' the games seem to imply that you have infinite lives, what with them now using RagdollPhysics for the bails and fading to white every time you bail.

* ChristmasRushed: 5, released on the very last day Activision had the license. In fact, it was so rushed that they printed the disc version without most of the content and got Robomodo to finish as much of it as possible to put in a Day 1 patch.

* ''Tony Hawk's Underground 2'' (2004): Followed the story of [=THUG=]. A year after the events of the game, we see the player character travel around the world competing in a "World Destruction Tour". Was heavily influenced by ''Series/{{Jackass}}'', featuring several of the cast as playable characters (complete with Bam Margera as one of the main characters). Received a PSP version with new levels that later appeared in [=THAW=]. Introduced a few little things to the gameplay, like the Freak Out (if you bail off a combo, you can {{Button Mash|ing}} to destroy your board in frustration - you get a few points and can start a new combo from it), the Natas Spin (which can only be used on small surfaces like hydrants and poles), graffiti tagging (which counts as a trick if you're in the middle of a Run Out combo), [[BulletTime Focus]] (the ability to slow down the world and perform your tricks or maintain your balance with precision accuracy as long as you have Special meter), and throwing objects at people (which change depending on the level). Wallplants were also renamed "Sticker Slaps" and were more readily integrated into the skating lines around the levels.

* ''Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD'' (2012): Activison's attempt to put the series back on track after some questionable turns. Launching as a downloadable game on [=PlayStation=] Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade, ''THPS HD'' is a revisit to many [[NostalgiaLevel classic levels]] of the first two titles (with a handful from the third via DLC), but reimagined in a new engine (both graphically and gameplay-wise). [[LostForever No longer available for purchase due to lapsed music licenses]] though Steam users can still download it if they already owned it.

** ''Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX'', a spinoff which uses a modified THPS engine, initially features no female characters. [[http://www.eeggs.com/items/41493.html Granny]] can be unlocked after retrying a level ten times, but this character is a man dressed up as a grandma.
