** The Joneses in ''4'' are pretty much a parody of the Griswolds from the ''Film/NationalLampoonsVacation'' films, with their vehicle, a green '70s station wagon loaded with luggage on the roof, heavily resembling the [[http://daddytypes.com/archive/gary_schneider_truckster.jpg Wagon Queen Family Truckster]].

* ShoutOut:
** [[VideoGame/GodOfWar Kratos's]] blades and a boxart of ''VideoGame/WarOfTheMonsters'' are part of the mementos in Calypso's office in the reboot.
** Sweet Tooth and Mr. Grimm are expys of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and Comicbook/GhostRider, at least in the earlier games.
** In the 2012 Reboot, three cars are modeled after ones from the ''Film/DeathRace'' movie: Death Warrant (Frankenstein's Monster), Kamikaze (14K), and the Juggernaut (Dreadnought). It may have something to do with the {{prequel}} to that movie having a ShoutOut of its own to ''Twisted Metal'', with Lucas' crime boss being named Markus Kane.

* DysfunctionJunction: The starting characters and two of the secret characters in [[DarkerandEdgier Twisted Metal: Black]] are institutionalized for various reasons and suffer from various disorders. The rest aren't much better; Cage is a serial killer who wishes to no longer feel remorse for his crimes, and the only things Black knows how to do is eat, crap, and kill. Marcus Kane is essentially the same he was in 2, except he speaks in code to disguise himself.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the 2012 game as Sweet Tooth attempts to kill the one that got away, [[spoiler: blood splatters on the family picture of the Kanes, covering up the members he killed. Aside from himself and Sophie, Charlie also remains visible and not covered in blood. In the ending, it's revealed that Sweet Tooth only cut him and let him live as a potential heir.]]

* BloodierAndGorier: The original games were usually reserved to blood puddles and explosions with few exceptions. ''Black'' and the 2012 reboot changes this up a bit with a lot more violent scenes in addition to being DarkerAndEdgier.

* InNameOnly: Twisted Metal 2012 is essentially this to the other Twisted Metal games. It is essentially a Multiplayer Only Game that they decided at the last minute to make it have a "Story Mode" to charge full price.
** Many characters? Nope you get only 3.
** Can play any character you want? Nope you must play each character in order.
** Characters drive a vehicle unique to their personalities? Nope the three drive any vehicle.
** Open world with lots of destruction? Nope and even worse with the certain missions where you must stay in a box or self destruct.
** [[spoiler: Krista Sparks aka Grasshopper still one of the most sympathetic contestants in all of Twisted Metal? ABSOLUTELY NOT. She is now a spoiled model wantabe who will kill anyone just to be a star.]]

* BossInMooksClothing: Juggernaut in the reboot certainly counts if you're fighting against it in the campaign. [[MightyGlacier An already tough vehicle]] which can dish out tremendous damage by just [[CarFu ramming you]], it also always has its trigun and quad cannon activated (both capable of spamming TONS of [[MoreDakka bullets]] and [[MacrossMissileMassacre swarmers]]) and is bound to be a MookMaker. If that wasn't bad enough, its weakpoints are pretty hard to hit; its trailer doors open for a brief moment when releasing [[{{Mook}} mooks]] and trying to attack it head-on is usually near suicide.
