** The color of the chosen unicycle also determines what they say after a successful trick combo.

* InterfaceScrew: The final set of contests against [[spoiler: the Anit-Uni, who will occasionally reverse the player's controls and flip the screen upside-down]]. Each one serves as a [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard "computer is a cheating bastard" moment]].

** The game's ending, oddly enough, punishes the computer for being a cheating bastard. Headlines are showing reading [[spoiler: "New Uni wins despite dirty tactics" and "Anti-Uni in custody."]]

However, a glitch in Last One allows lets you to bypass a checkpoint, causing your unicycle to pass so that when you reach the finish line and the race doesn't stop. If you go over the edge of the finish line, you fall off into empty space where the unicycle makes very erratic movements. Enough wandering will eventually take you back to the track.

* MyRulesAreNotYourRules: If you listen to the sound effects of the computer players, they occasionally seem to pull off stunt combinations not normally possible, such as two Double Rolls (not a Roll City) in one jump.

* ComebackMechanic: Becomes apparent when you let two player unicycles run side-by-side without speed-boosts; each will fall behind in turn and catch up at the same interval.

''Uniracers'' (known as ''Unirally'' in Europe) is a 1994 [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]] [[RacingGame racing game]] developed by DMA Design (Now a part of TakeTwoInteractive) and published by Nintendo.

!!Tropes associated with ''Uniracers''
* [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience Color-Coded For Your Convenience]]: Sections of the track have specific color patterns that signify upcoming hazards.
* HappyDance: One of the animations for the winning unicycle.
* {{Headdesk}}: One of the animations for the losing unicycle.
* IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels: Each of the game's nine tours have names such as "Crawler", "Sprinter", and "Hunter". However, almost every tour has more sensible difficulty levels with the names Bronze, Silver, and Gold.
* InterfaceScrew: The final set of contests against [[spoiler: the Anit-Uni, who will occasionally reverse the player's controls and flip the screen upside-down]]. Each one serves as a [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard "computer is a cheating bastard" moment]].
* NitroBoost: Successfully landing a trick will reward the player with a short boost of speed; more complex stunt combinations will result in stronger boots.
* PunnyName: In solo play, the name of the computer-controlled opponent is somewhat relative to the difficulty setting: Bronsen for Bronze, Sylvia for Silver, and Gulden for Gold. [[spoiler: However, this does NOT apply to the Anti-Uni.]]
* RubberBandAI: Mostly noticeable on the higher difficulty settings.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniracers The Other Wiki]] states that DMA was sued by {{Pixar}} because the CGI unicycles in the game closely resembled a unicycle in one of Pixar's animated shorts.
* SplitScreen
* TakeThat: Entering either Sega or [[SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] for a unicycle's name will result in being deemed "not cool enough" to use during the game.
** Sonic actually gets a double-dose of TakeThat [[spoiler: as, within the final set of races, the game occasionally will play at "Hedgehog Speed", which makes the game as fast as a slide show]].
* TheCameo: [[spoiler: [[SuperMarioBros Yoshi]]]] makes an appearance after completing the gold-level contests in one of the tours.
* TotallyRadical: Some of the quotes spouted out by the unicycles fit this.
