* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Aikka. He's in the race for pretty much the same reason Team Earth is in too. Also, [[spoiler:Eva and Jordan wouldn't have gotten as far as they did in the climax without him and O.]]

* ThoseTwoGuys: Stan and Koji.

* AnyoneCanDie: It doesn't matter if you're a villain, a neutral racer, or a hero, very few characters have immunity in this series. It's especially notable once [[spoiler:Canaletto]] takes center stage. Among the casualties are [[spoiler:the Mad Scrub, Toros (although this hinges more on implications), Sul, Kross, Satis, O, and Canaletto himself]] bite the dust by the end of the series. This also includes non-fatal renditions of this trope: [[spoiler:Rick Thunderbolt is permanently thrust out of the plot halfway through the series due to a CareerEndingInjurty and Jordan [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence Ascends To A Higher Plane Of Existence]] to save Molly]].

** Hell, the worst you could call Sul is a JerkAss. [[GoodIsNotNice He isnt actually evil]], he has simply done everything-except win the Ultimate Prize, that is-and wants to win just for the sake of doing it. He's actually a fairly nice for someone who's almost god.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Jordan Wilde]] becomes the new Avatar, destroying Canaletto and restoring Oban. However, he does this having just [[spoiler: admitted his love for Eva.]] The last shot of him is [[spoiler: one of him [[ManlyTears silently crying]], as the chances of him ever seeing Eva again as the Avatar are unlikely.]] Everyone else, however, returns home to happier lives.

Added DiffLines:

* ConspicuousCGI: On the star racers, the racetracks, and a small number of the characters. It only really gets glaring on the racers that have exposed pilots, like Aikka's and Ceres'.

* HometownHero: In the preliminaries on Alwas, the home team of Flint and Marcel are given the edge with traps activated to foil their opponent but not them.



* [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Daughter" Gal]]: Eva's motivation for most of the series is to get back the love Don Wei denied her for ten years. The irony is that Don doesn't know she's his daughter at all until well into the latter half of the series.

* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Mother]]: Molly's attitude towards Spirit, the racer who she thinks is responsible for her mother's death. When she faces him in the race, she wrecks the Whizzing Arrow trying to flat-out kill him. It's only when he shows her the events of that day through his eyes that Molly learns that Maya's death was an accident, and that Spirit actually tried to warn her about the engine fire. [[spoiler:Later, however, it turns out that Canaletto engineered the "accident."]]

* HideYourLesbians: Ning and Skun are strongly implied to be a couple. Since they come from a OneGenderRace it makes sense but since this show was playing on ToonDisney and ABC Family, the most romantic thing we see them do is hold hands.
This list shows the last 10 events of 60. Show all.
