Added DiffLines:

* BloodlessCarnage: Almost taken to the point of self-parody in during the titular DeathCourse from [[spoiler: ''Bumperdome.'']] A ''lot'' of racers enter, and suffer hits that couldn't be anything but fatal, yet by the time it's down to the final two competitors, there's nary a corpse to be seen and the track is pretty much spotless.


Added DiffLines:

* DeathCourse: What the titular course in [[spoiler:''Bumperdome'']] turns out to be, much to the team's horror. For maximum BlackComedy, the team member who gets duped into entering? [[spoiler:Poor old Chet.]] Of course, as the field begins to dwindle, any semblance of racing disappears and it devolves into a pure BloodSport.


Added DiffLines:

* HulkSpeak: [[DumbMuscle Gigantus]] the Rhinoceros Beetle, from ''Bumperdome.''

* RealMenWearPink: In "Snails in Jail," Whiplash apparently orders a "Ladies' Choice" perfume. When his soft side gets out in "Tough as Snails", he ultimately decides to own this trope and becomes a popular spokesperson for "Sensitive Side Lavender Extreme". Earlier, in "The Challenge", he flunks out of the titular challenge because he had to race two women to keep them from buying out his favorite lavender skin lotion.

* AdaptationExpansion: Due to actually having time to give them focus, the racing snails are much more rounded characters in the series. Of particular note is Skidmark, who was notable for having nothing notable about him in the film, becoming a CrazyPrepared ConspiracyTheorist and MadScientist.
