* RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude: Played straight. When one of the six youth rather sensibly asks their holographic ObiWan why they alone were chosen to save the world, she replies that each one brings "something different" to the team. Which one brings ''driving experience'' to a battle for the fate of the world that involves high-speed racing is never said. Whether this is LampshadeHanging or BetterThanABareBulb is entirely in the eye of the viewer.

HotWheelsBattleForce5 is an animated series from Nerd Corps, the makers of ''DragonBooster'', ''WesternAnimation/StormHawks'' and ''LeagueOfSuperEvil,'' that aired on Creator/CartoonNetwork from 2009 to 2011. It is MerchandiseDriven, much like the previous entries in the ''WesternAnimation/HotWheelsAcceleracers'' franchise, but this is the first one to be an all-out animated series. While the main character, Vert Wheeler, seems to be the same, no mention is made of the previous two works.

* [[spoiler: DarkIsNotEvil: Turns out the Red Sentient civilization was just as tired of Krytus's war as the Blues were.]]

* [[spoiler: FakeDefector: In ''Better Off Red'', Vert pulls this on Krytus, pretending to switch sides and agree with Krytus' argument that Sage must be stopped in order to save the multiverse. Turns out he was really finding out the location of a series of Red Sentient devices that transported them to their Respawn Chambers so they could destroy them. He also swiped the last remaining Blue Sentient one from Krytus in the process.]]

For perspective, this guy single-handedly destroyed hundreds, if not THOUSANDS of Red Zurk using his expertise in electromagnetism.]]

** Battle Force 5 themselves.

to:

** Battle Force 5 themselves. Vert (leader) is red, and like Krytus, they are both hot-headed and headstrong. Sherman and Spinner (muscle, mind, and wit) are blue. Agura (spec ops) is green, fitting her ranger/tracker/ranger abilities. Stanford (artillery) is purple, fitting considering his royal status and love of DJ/Dubstep, since blacklights (common in such places) have a purple look to them. Zoom (scouting and recon) is yellow, a heroic color in Japan (his home country), and the darker yellow is almost red (like Vert) which is interesting to note because Zoom is quite capable of operating by himself, similar to how Vert was running solo in the first episode.

* BrainsAndBrawn: Zemerik is the brains, while Zug is the brawn.

to:

* BrainsAndBrawn: Zemerik is the brains, while Zug is the brawn. Sherman and Spinner Cortez also qualify: Sherman is the younger (and larger/more muscular) brother, and has even taken out a massive Red Sentient in one punch (Brawn); but he's also one of the smartest of Battle Force 5, alongside Tezz and Sage (Brains). Spinner is the older brother, but is the smallest and physically weakest, and he's not as intelligent as the others. Rather, his Brains are less about hard sciences like physics, but more about intuitive reaction, like pulling off a move he saw in a video game. His hand-eye coordination is exceptional, which requires brain-power. His Brawn also takes an unconventional approach, in that he can often persuade foes much stronger than he is to fight each other and not him. All in all, Sherman is straight-up conventional in both Brains and Brawn, while Spinner is all about being outside the box with both thinking and combat.

** Zug's drillbit hand looks familiar, [[Franchise/{{Bioshock}} especially when he drilled through a Zurk's chest once]].

* VagueAge: While some fans believe that BF5 could be in their early 20s, the official Battle Force 5 website describes our heroes as a "team of teen drivers."
