* EvenBetterSequel: the original ''Trackmania'' was a rather quirky game with limited graphics and only one game mode. The first sequel, however, was spectacularly good in comparison, made the name of the franchise and was years ahead of the majority of games in online play integration. Calling it Trackmania ''Sunrise'' was not an understatement.

** Exaggerated to hell and back with ''Turbo''[='=]s hidden Super Trackmaster medals. These bonus medals are unlocked upon getting a Trackmaster Medal on all 200 tracks (which is already no easy task), but the kicker is that the times for these medals are done by some of the fastest ''Trackmania'' players in the world, such as riolu! and Spam. Good luck winning all 200 of them, you'll '''really''' need it.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: Example within the game: each of the 7 environments has a car with completely unique handling. Most online servers have a playlist of tracks on all environments in random order. Going from Desert to Stadium or from Snow to Bay will cause you to overshoot the first turn. Going from Coast (100 km/h average speed) to Island (many tracks are pegged at 999 km/h all the way) is worse.
** Today there exist hex edited tracks that have the cars from one environment in another environment, and even if you get the speed intuitively right, the ''gravity'' is different between car types. Cue repeatedly faceplanting the landing ramp of 'easy' jumps with a Snow car in Stadium because it dropped like a brick - before the server switches over to another Stadium track, this time featuring the Coast car and its moon gravity.

* AntiRageQuitting: If you leave an online match before the round is up, you won't get any ladder points, even if your best time qualified you for them (i.e. if you did better than at least one other driver higher than you in the ladder).

* RecycledTitle: Interestingly enough, there are two games in the series that are named ''Trackmania Turbo'': one is a ''United'' port for the Nintendo DS, and the other is the more recent and much better-known release on [=PS4=] and Xbox One. We'll refer to the latter game in this page for the most part.* RuleOfFun: Pretty much the basis of the game. Cars that go unrealistic speeds? Rollercoaster-style loops? Thousand-foot high jumps? It's all here.

The title made after those is ''Trackmania Turbo'', somewhat of an upgraded successor to Trackmania 2, but different still. Turbo is a complete package of Trackmania 2's environments all rebranded and with different vehicles, plus one more. Turbo fully transitioned into Ubisoft's uPlay platform and has an impressive aesthetic upgrade with lots of attractive style and HUD flair, as well as various changes to accommodate console play of the game and make it feel more accessable.

* {{Acrofatic}}: The Alpine and Bay cars are both surprisingly nimble - Alpine's 4x4 is a bit slow but has amazing grip on roads, and the Bay SUV has ridiculous acceleration and very bouncy suspension.
** The SUV can take hairpin turns at 500 [[superscript:km]]∕[[subscript:h]] and the sportscar can go from 0 to 950 [[superscript:km]]∕[[subscript:h]] in about 1 second given a red booster block.

* {{Retraux}}[=/=]YouDontLookLikeYou: ''Turbo'' has a vastly different art style compared to the other games in the series, which is influenced by old-school arcade racers such as ''VideoGame/DaytonaUSA''.

* SlippySlideyIceWorld: Alpine, as expected. Perfect grip on the asphalt and wood, no grip at all on the frozen rivers. Interestingly, the Rally environment is also very slippery, although that's more in order to emulate the drifting physics usually seen on IRL rallies.

** Also, within the games, the Trackmania 2 environements 'Canyon' and 'Valley' could be seen as highly improved spiritual successors to the Desert and Rally environments from the Original era.
