* [[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.

* WhatTheHellPlayer: Since the third game, if you ever run into other people too much or even once, they'll push you down and make you wipe out.

** Pretty much every game in the series chews you out in one of many ways whenever you leave the playing area, from saying that you suck, to calling you a loser, to ''accusing you of doing drugs''.

* ShownTheirWork: Compared to the level in the first game, the San Francisco level in [=THPS4=] is a very accurate depiction of the area around the Ferry Building. The scaled down but accurate depiction of Alcatraz is just icing.

** Hearing the varied mix of rap, reggae, and rock that one would get from a Tony Hawk game, it's almost odd to know that the first game only had rock songs with one ska song in the mix.

* FollowTheLeader: While it is was one of the first 3D skateboarding games, it wasn't ''the'' first. ''Street [=Sk8er=]'' was released the previous year.



* GenrePopularizer: Credited for kickstarting the supergenre of "extreme sports" games in the early 2000s.



* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Elissa Steamer, the lone female pro skater up until ''Underground'', not counting created characters (and even then you couldn't make a female skater in ''2''). Averted as you unlock certain characters (Private Carrera in the first two games, Demoness in ''3'', Daisy in ''4''; ''Underground'' has no female pedestrians, playing the trope straighter).

* LeParkour: Introduced in ''[=THAW=]'' as a means of staring or continuing a combo while off-board, but also gave access to a small DoubleJump, WallRun, and WallJump, allowing the player to reach certain areas in different ways.
