* AllStereotypeCast: Twisted metal 3 alone includes a stereotypical raver, a sexy environmentalist Granola Girl, a "get off my lawn"-type granny, a black guy from "the hood" who wants to "kick it with his homies in the crib", an expy of The Prodigy's frontman, a burly construction worker, a Ghost Rider expo and a crazy deranged homeless guy

* GenreSavvy: The Robertses in ''Head-On'', with regards to Calypso's wish granting methods. But, of course, they had already been screwed over twice before, so they learned from their mistakes.
** [[DownerEnding Or not...]] Jamie's ending in ''2'' is an example of this trope played straight, as she tricked Calypso into helping her find her brother. A good example from ''Head-On'' is Agent Shepard, who, in his ending, doesn't even bother making a wish, he just arrests Calypso.

* YourSizeMayVary: Blackfield Asylum. Plays into a bit of GameplayAndStorySegregation. the Asylum in cutscenes is a simple 3 to 4 story square building in the middle of a desert. In the level Prison Passage, the Asylum is a wide U-shaped building consisting of several dozen stories, and houses roughly as much free space inside as Minion's Arena. And rather than sitting in a desert, it's sitting on a port big enough to hold a large cargo ship.

* {{Black and Grey Morality}}: While some of the drivers have more admirable goals than others, even the most noble are willing to go along with the loss of life and destruction that the Twisted Metal tournament entails.



* BloodSport: The titular Twisted Metal tournament.



** Sweet Tooth and Mr. Grimm are expys of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and Comicbook/GhostRider, at least in the earlier games.



* {{Sliding Scale of Silliness Versus Seriousness}}: It slides back and forth. The third and fourth games are very silly, while ''Black'' and the 2012 Reboot are extremely Dark and Grim. The first two games fall somewhere in middle, with the second being slightly sillier. The Spinoffs lean strongly to the sillier side of things.

* BeingGodIsHard: Not so much of a god as he is more of a deity, but Mr. Grimm accidentally devoured a soul he was supposed to deliver, and has been addicted to devouring souls since then. He then entered the tournament so that he can wish for someone else to take his job. Bottom line, he entered the tournament to quit being ''the'' grim reaper.

* SkyFace: Occurs in one character's ending in ''2''. In [[spoiler: Spectre's ending, he wishes for the whole world to see his face. Unfortunately for him, he leaves out the "how", which prompts Calypso to grant his wish by stretching his face across the entire sky.]]

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: In 2012, if you watch one of the AI opponents, you will notice they can re spawn their special weapons almost instantly. With one time using its special five times in one go just after the match started. It is also able to use other items without having to previously acquire them.

* EvilVersusEvilEvilVersusEvil: A few of the games pit a psychopathic MonsterClown versus a LiteralGenie empowered by a demon against one another. Considering that most of the other racers are [[AntiHero Anti-Heroes]] at best, this trope is widespread.
