* 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.

** Returned in ''Trackmania Turbo''. In fact, the solo campaign has a handful of tracks that will use the bounce as part of the track.

The first two titles, ''[=TrackMania=]'' and ''[[OddlyNamedSequel TrackMania Sunrise]]'', each with three environments to build in, were not particularly successful on the market. The game did not catch on among a wider audience until the free ''[=TrackMania=] Nations'' was released, a popular game that spawned a large community and many fansites. It had a single environment with many more freeform tiles, enabling a much larger variety of tracks compared to the older titles. To please fans of the original environments, ''Trackmania United'' was a paid version that also included the environments of the first games. A free ''"Forever"'' upgrade was available that enabled cross-server play between ''Nations'' and ''United'' players. The fifth title in the series, released in September 2011, is [[CapcomSequelStagnation naturally]] called ''[=TrackMania=] 2'' and features a new graphics engine and a single "Canyon" environment with far more track tiles and options than any of the older environments. The "Valley" environment has been released, as well as the fan favorite previous environment, "Stadium". All can be played without the others.
