* DoABarrelRoll: Later games (starting with ''Pure'') enable StarFox-style barrel rolls that drain health, but if completed, they cause a turbo boost when the ship lands. Taken UpToEleven in ''2048'', where the AG-Systems Prototype [[spoiler: can pull off a DOUBLE Barrel Roll.]]

* HarderThanHard: ''Wipeout HD'''s [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Elite difficulty]] is punishing, particularly on Phantom Class. Aside from getting very aggressive with weaponry, the AI ships can quickly turn through the sharpest corners [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard as if they're constantly running Autopilot while STILL maintaining high speeds]]. In short, it's Wipeout AI upgraded with VideoGame/{{F-Zero}}'s AI tendencies.

Not to be confused with [[Series/{{Wipeout1988}} a game show involving finding which answers don't belong]], or [[Series/{{Wipeout2008}} that obstacle course show with the Big Balls]] based off of ''MostExtremeEliminationChallenge'' (and by extension, ''Series/TakeshisCastle'').

* {{Bowdlerize}}: Notable on the series' soundtracks for example:
** In ''2097/XL'', "Firestarter" by Music/TheProdigy is censored as the instrumental version due to drug references and profanities in the lyrics. The same thing has been applied to "Sick" by Music/UtahSaints in ''Fusion''.
*** And "Big Groovy Fucker" by Plump DJs in the same game got it's title censored as "Big Groovy Funker".



* {{Nerf}}: The Mines pickup got it's rate of fire reduced in ''3''. Meanwhile in later games since ''Pure'', the rate of fire has been drastically increased, which it means it can be deployed in a single second!
** Averted with the Shield pick up, which you can now finally turn it off in order to use the weapons since ''2097/XL''.
** The [[NitroBoost Turbo]] pickup recieved this in ''Fusion'', which it means you can no longer speed up after getting hit by the [[AdvancingWallOfDoom Quake]] pickup as your craft will still continue to slow down temporarily. This is finally removed in ''Pure''.



** ''Fusion'' had Kappa ads. For the uninformed, Kappa is a ''clothing store''.

to:

** ''Fusion'' had Kappa ads. For the uninformed, Kappa is a ''clothing store''.actually an Italian ''sportswear brand''.
*** Don't forget the Music/UtahSaints advertisements as well. In which their song "Sick" (Albeit censored as Instrumental) is also featured in the game's soundtrack.

Added DiffLines:

* MercyMode: ''HD'' and ''2048'' feature a Pilot Assist function, that helps the player keep their craft away from the track walls. While it's certainly useful for newbies, more experienced players leave it turned off since it actually prevents them from taking optimal lines through corners.

Added DiffLines:

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Van-Uber is pretty much this trope in the form of a racing team. Sure, they adopt a philosophy of winning races fair and square without using weapons, but they developed one of the most powerful weapons systems in the league, with ''a straight-up black hole'' as their SecretArt.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: The Tetsuo sisters, Arial and Arian, were known to be bitter rivals on the track, even going as far as to race for opposing teams Auricom and Qirex during the ''[=F3600=]''. Arial was the pretty, popular one, while Arian was the snarky, intelligent one.

to:

* CityNoir: There are lots of tracks in the series with this backdrop. Examples include Gare D'Europa in ''2097'', Vohl Square in ''Fusion'' (which is fittingly enough Tigron's home turf), and Basilico in ''Pulse''.
