** There were icons present in the original game that would give you extra points upon collection as well as add to your combo multiplier as if they were an additional trick. These were never seen again after the first game.

* ''Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam'' (2006): The only racing game in the series (though there are several goals in other games which are races), notable for containing no other pro skateboarders save for Tony Hawk, and being much more cartoonish and unrealistic than the other games in the series. Eventually got a [[UsefulNotes/Playstation2 PS2]] port, after being released for the Wii (possibly to compensate for no ''Project 8''), Nintendo DS and GameBoyAdvance.

* NostalgiaLevel: The PC version of ''2'', ''2X'', ''3'', ''Underground'', ''Underground 2'', and ''American Wasteland'' all include levels from previous installments. ''4'' doesn't have any classic levels but instead brings over a level from ''Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2''.

** Gene Simmons is also playable in ''Underground'', which even features a Music/{{KISS}} level, where the band will play after collecting the K-I-S-S letters scattered around the level. Yes, Peter's drum set does the floating thing. And you can play as Gene Simmons in the [=KISS=] level and have [=KISS=] play, resulting in there being ''two'' Gene Simmons.

The other three members are also available as pedestrian skaters (i.e. skaters who use the skins of [=NPCs=] with only the basic skateboarding animations, and no unique special tricks).

* ''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, but reimagined in a new engine (both graphically and gameplay-wise).

* [[GuestFighter Guest Skater]]: A lot. From Activision ([[VanityPlate the Neversoft eyeball]], ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}guy'', a random soldier from ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'', ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' characters), licensed by Activision ({{Spider-Man}}, {{Wolverine}}, {{Shrek}}) or just for fun ([[Franchise/StarWars Darth Maul]], Creator/BenjaminFranklin, IronMan, Jason Lee, etc.).

Added DiffLines:

** In general, all the games up to [=THAW=] have a massive amount of iconic skate spots recreated in digital form, as well as various obscure tricks that don't really add anything to the game (like pressure flips and primo slides), yet just exist there to be doable.

Added DiffLines:

* SerialEscalation: In terms of tricks and combos you can execute. First game is relatively grounded, if a bit unrealistic with its impossibly long grind tricks. By the time of [=THUG2=], majority of objectives require you to defy all the possible laws of physics.

* ''Tony Hawk's Motion'' (2008): The only Tony Hawk game released in 2008, exclusive to the DS. This game was bundled with the actually more entertaining [[BSide bonus game]] VideoGame/HuePixelPainter, and was extremely bare bones, with no licensed music (a series first), and full motion control, which came in the form of a motion sensitive cartridge you plugged into the GBA slot (which, when you consider that this was released months after the GBA-slot-less DSi, was a bad move). The game was actually half skateboarding, half snowboarding, and while public perception of the series had been on a low for a while, this game took the notorious title of the critically worst-reviewed game in the series until THPS5.

The series has generated twelve entries on multiple platforms, with at least one new game released almost every year since the franchise's launch from 1999. It also released three spin-offs: two for the {{DS}} and one for the {{Wii}}. It is remembered hugely for its [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome unmatched taste in music]], which is more recognized than the gameplay itself.
