!!''Hot Wheels World Race'' provides examples of:
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: When Lani says she needs help Taro immediately goes back to save her. Vert does the same, but only because he wasn't sure Taro could save her on his own.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Markie is this to Kurt Wylde
* AscendedExtra: Dan Dresden, who goes from just a random name that Markie mentions to [[spoiler: leader of the Street Breed and finishing in 3rd place.]]
* AllThereInTheManual: The Racers not brought up by name and their backgrounds, their cars and their specs. It wasn't obvious Taro Kitano was supposed to be Asian until his redesign in ''Acceleracers''.
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Vert's final Jump [[spoiler: to return the Wheel.]] The rest of the stunts may be justified, given the fact that the materials for the cars is never given, no car ever reaches 300 mph, and they're racing in an alternate dimension where gravity might be slightly weaker.
* BashBrothers: Though not of the team-up variety, Kurt and Markie frequently cause other drivers to experience collisions. At one point, they're even bashing each other.
* BrokenPedestal: After Kurt was found out to be a spy, Markie no longer looked up to him if not despised him. Luckily, after all that was said and done, [[RebuiltPedestal the pedestal was rebuilt.]]
-->'''Mark:''' ''"I always looked up to you, Kurt. That's why I wanted to be a driver and be like you. But I'm not you... I don't cheat to win!"''

-->'''Kurt:''' ''"With my eyes closed, Banjee!"''
-->''*SMASH!*''
-->'''Banjee:''' ''"With your mouth closed, the better!"''
-->'''Kurt:''' ''"Actions speak louder than words!"''

* DickDastardlyStopsToCheat: Enforced, Zedd-36 thinks he can win without cheating but Gelorum forces him to anyway, [[spoiler:though this is just as much because Kurt doesn't want to actually hurt or kill the other drivers]].
* EnemyMine: Of sorts. While Kadeem and Taro are still fighting for first, Alec suggests "giving the new guy(himself) a shot at first place". 2 quick nods and both drivers proceed to spin Alec out.
* HeelFaceTurn: Kurt Wylde (though he was never evil per-see, only misled.)
* FiveManBand along with FiveTokenBand: Determined by the plot: among the Team Leaders with a rotation of three SixthRanger s.
** TheHero: Vert Wheeler
** TheLancer: Kurt Wylde
** TheHeart: Brian Kadeem
** TheBigGuy: Taro Kitano
** The RecklessPacifist: Banjee Castillo
** SixthRanger: Markie is unusual in that he is a TagAlongKid as well, and not the last among the group to join the Good Guys: that honor belongs to [[spoiler: his older brother, Kurt.]]
*** Alec Wood and Dan Dresden spend some time as Sixth Rangers themselves on the track, if not in the plot, both finishing 3rd at their best in a leg.
* FriendlyRivalry: Though some of them bicker with each other on occasion, each of the drivers get along surprisingly well with each other even while racing.
* InformedAbility: The cars; while the abilities of the numerous cars were given the chance to shine, [[AllThereInTheManual other cars seem to have unique abilities that never got to be used]]. Examples include:
** Felix's Power Pipes' hover capabilities (completely different from the turbo jets).
** Wayne's Charger R/T's [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic cannons (designed to shatter rocks and boulders)]].
** Charlie's Sweet 16 II's [[DishingOutDirt ability to dig trenches and cause sand storms]].
** Ricky's 24/Seven's [[ChameleonCamouflage chameleon stealth ability]] and [[NightVisionGoggles night-vision]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Kurt Wylde ... so very much. [[spoiler:While not above sabotaging or possibly hurting the other drivers, he draws the line at killing them. And he doesn't want his younger brother Markie to get hurt.]]
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Haziz. The old black man that Kadeem sees. It's unknown if it's a hallucination, if it's real, or what.
* MundaneUtility: One would think Banjee's [[ChainsawGood buzzsaw]] could be used offensively in a race. When its actually put to use, its used to slice ice blocking the track.
* NitroBoost: Dr. Tezla provided all cars with a Nitrox-2 system, which allows any driver to reach the maximum speed of 300 mph. Also includes [[RuleOfCool flaming trails and wheels]], [[spoiler:and as shown by Kurt (purposely) and Markie (accidentally) on several occasions, even just one container of the stuff can serve as an effective [[StuffBlowingUp explosive]] if ruptured]].
* NoodleIncident: How Markie was able to get to Tezla's Cube. When Kurt asks how, Markie said it wasn't important and quickly changed the subject.
* OneLiner: Multiple:
** "What's the matter, Banjee? Didn't you ever learn how to grind a half-pipe?"
** "Wisdom is a circle; what you receive you must give back."
** "I'm out of here." (said by Vert right before the Wheel of Power reopens the Portal.)
** "Some people just can't drive in traffic."
** "Let's see how well you drive...in HALF a car. "
** "I'm gonna pass you."
** "Nobody beats Kurt Wylde."
** "Nice shot, Slingshot."
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Esmeralda. Normally, she sounds vaguely European. But during the "Greatest Challenge", her voice lapsed into something that sounds... southern?
* OrderedToCheat: Kurt Wylde [[spoiler: by Gelorum.]]
* [[{{OlderThanTheyLook}} Older Than They Act]]: Markie, only in comparison to Vert. Markie constantly gives the impression that he's younger than Vert, which wouldn't be a problem if Vert wasn't more than a couple days older than sixteen. It doesn't help that the adjective that Markie evokes is "younger" due to being Kurt's younger brother. So either Markie is only a couple of days to a week younger than Vert (if the World Race started soon after Vert got the Deora II), or Markie is older than Vert.
* PlotThreads: Despite being the main character, Vert's personal growth, aside from a single conversation with Kadeem and helping Taro save Lani, is almost entirely relegated to the GrandFinale, rendering Vert into a temporary DecoyProtagonist or [[{{Deuteragonist}} Tritagonist]], depending on your preference, while Taro and Banjee are placed center-stage on the track, and Kurt Wylde alternates sharing the non-racing spotlight with Kadeem and Markie.
* RammingAlwaysWorks: While there's plenty of body contact, the Scorchers' cars take full advantage of this with their lava-plows, from opening doors to ramming CLYP cars aside to make a path.
* RealityEnsues: Both played straight and possibly averted. When Vert's dad appears (Vert only left a note while his dad was away on duty), he promptly has Vert grounded for a month. Though you would think that if a parent discovered that their 16-year old had just prevented the most powerful known energy source from falling into evil hands, and donated his 5 million dollars from winning the race to help a group of Africans in desperate need, would probably not ground the kid.
** On the mechanical point of view, there's Chuvo's and Rekkas' attempt at taking a jump in their [[MightyGlacier heavy trucks]]. Both fell short and promptly fell back to the bottom. Though one would point out that they did not use their [[ForgottenPhlebotinum Nitrox boosts]], while racers after them did.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler: Kurt Wylde is Zedd-36. Though it's not particularly hard to figure out due to the fact that Slingshot and Zedd-36 are the same shape and never appear together. The "Why is that surf rat prowling around?" scene almost cements it beforehand.]] Also, Gelorum [[spoiler: isn't human.]]
** "That's pretty [[{{StealthPun}} wild]]. Even for Kurt."
* SimpleYetAwesome: Vert's surfing and skateboarding skills, Sidedraft's Eye in the Sky, the Turbo Jets' on the Wave Ripper's cars (Vert relies on them for EVERYTHING.)
* TrueCompanions: Alec is this to Vert. Later on, Markie is as well to Vert.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart Looking sleek in all black, white-haired Gelorum is the primary villain and very evil, wanting the racers "eliminated".
* VagueAge: No one but Vert is given a confirmed age beyond "over sixteen." Though Alec and Markie are likely to be in the sixteen-seventeen range.

For the most part, it was MerchandiseDriven, just like its predecessor, ''Hot Wheels: Highway 35 World Race''. The competent storyline and very vehicle in the toyline being tailor-made to fit in with the story suggests it was also made [[DoingItForTheArt for the art]], much like ''ReBoot''. Because Mattel paid to make these movies, it was impossible to be ScrewedByTheNetwork, as they would just take their business elsewhere- but the company that did the CGI animation was another story.

Continuing after the events of ''Hot Wheels World Race'', former multiversal grand prix competitors turned street racers, Vert Wheeler, Taro Kitano & brothers Kurt and Markie Wylde find themselves teaming back up with Dr. Peter Tesla. Gelorum and her army of Racing Drones have reappeared to take back the Wheel of Power and are accessing the Racing Realms. The Racing Realms have tracks that are dominated by specific elements that make for severe driving conditions (such as the Fog Realm for driving in, well, [[CaptainObvious fog conditions]]). Those who conquer a Realm gains an Accelecharger which allows a car to drive with no complications in the conditions of the associated realm. With the help of Dr. Tezla, the racers enter the realms to obtain the Accelechargers before Gelorum's Drones do. However, the racers find themselves vexed by the sudden emergence of a mysterious fourth group dubbed the Silencerz, whose enigmatic motives are masked behind private communications and incredible technology. With a new potential enemy lurking in the shadows, the situation grows more complicated as the drivers attempt to find what lies at the end of the Accelerons' creation.

Unfortunately, a large period of time has muddled the presence of [=AcceleRacers=], as it is never seen beyond the internet these days. However, when a film hits the Website/YouTube community, it gains notable viewership. Until the cliffhanger is resolved, this series floats in limbo. More recently, Vert Wheeler's character reappeared as the lead character in ''WesternAnimation/HotWheelsBattleForce5'', but that series has no connection to World Race and [=AcceleRacers=].
