* ChristmasRushed: The game got this treatment, but for good reason. After ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' got delayed to summer 1998, Rare had to have ''some'' triple-A game to put out around the Christmas 1997 season, and the game they had at that point (which was miles away from the game you're reading an article about now) was revised extensively and ultimately published around mid-to-late November. According to general consensus, [[TropesAreNotBad the rushed state of the game did very little to hinder the actual playing experience]].

*** There's also a special acceleration trick which only works on cars. Due to the immediate acceleration bump when you press the A button being so great with cars that it can override the designated top speed, repeatedly tapping the A button can make you go up to 10 mph faster than you're supposed to. This doesn't work with hovercrafts or airplanes, however, or when you're driving a car on off-track terrain, and seems to be a glitch since you're never told about it as an actual hint.

** Also Tiptup, who had ''slightly'' higher top speed and ''slightly'' lower acceleration and handling, and went on to cameo in BanjoKazooie ([[YourSizeMayVary where, contrary to this game, he is considerably bigger than Banjo.]])

* {{Padding}}: One gets this feeling given that the single player mode requires you to, for each world, race on all the tracks, beat the boss, collect silver coins in each track, beat the boss again, and then face Wizpig when this has been done with all worlds. If you want the real ending, you need to enter a grand prix to win a trophy in each world, beat the bosses ''again'', and rinse and repeat the initial and coin races in a new world before facing Wizpig one more time.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxMh1hvk1KE Wizpig Challenge]], the song that plays when you race Wizpig in the big final showdown, is appropriately badass and intense.

* NightmareFuel: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZH82T3Ht4M This cutscene]] that plays when you go back out into the main hub area after collecting all the pieces of the Wizpig Amulet. In short, the giant stone head of Wizpig in the hub world ''comes alive and begins laughing medically'' after being restored to full flesh before giving the camera, which is slowly zooming in on the eyes, a DeathGlare.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6DEZAdfeH4 The sting that plays]] when you lose a battle stage or a Wizpig race can send chills down anyone's spine, let alone those of kids.

* BreatherLevel: Bluey is significantly easier than Tricky is, despite being the second world's boss.



* ItWasHisSled: There is a fifth world, Future Funland.

to:

* ItWasHisSled: There is a fifth world, Future Funland. You get there by having 1st place trophies in the four worlds and colliding with the signpost placard that displays them.



* ThatOneBoss: Bubbler the octopus. And the second race against Wizpig himself.

to:

* ThatOneBoss: Bubbler the octopus.octopus is a very difficult race. The second race is even harder. And the second race against Wizpig himself.



* ThatOneSidequest: Unlocking [[spoiler: T.T.]] as a playable character requires beating his best time on every track. And he's ''good.'' In the original, this means unlocking the fifth and final world... In the remake, this means both unlocking the final world ''and'' buying all the tracks in the [[spoiler:D.K. Jungle]] world. Of course, once you get [[spoiler:T.T.]], you have no excuse for losing to anyone ever.
