* VindicatedByHistory: Upon the film's release in 2008, it was both a critical and commercial bomb. However, as more and more people have discovered the film in bargain bins, many are now hailing it as one of the most faithful adaptations ever, extremely fun, and with groundbreaking visuals.

* VindicatedByHistory: Upon the film's release in 2008, it was both a critical and commercial bomb. However, as more and more people have discovered the film in bargain bins, many are now hailing it as one of the most faithful adaptations ever, extremely fun, and with groundbreaking visuals. Indeed, its anime-esque visual style is even beginning to appear again in films that would by released several years later, such as ''Film/ScottPilgrim'', ''Film/SuckerPunch'', ''Film/TronLegacy'', and to an extent, ''Film/PacificRim''.
** The film has also influenced a big-budget blockbuster franchise. It was after proving that bright, high-energy, almost cartoon-like action would work in live-action film that Creator/GenndyTartakovsky was tapped to storyboard ''Film/IronMan2'' because his personal style is very much like that seen in ''Speed Racer''.

*** "The Car Hater" has a scene where ''normal citizens'' get involved in horrific crashes (sometimes even catching on fire) because some thugs were paid to sabotage many cars.

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The Nintendo Wii video game is considered a pretty good ''VideoGame/FZero'' knockoff.

* SpiritualAdaptation: It's, arguably, just as viable an adaptation of ''VideoGame/FZero'' as it is of ''Anime/SpeedRacer''.

* TheScrappy: With the possible exception of the Casa Cristo fight scene (''maybe'' there wasn't another way for them to get out of that mess), the movie would've been just fine without Spritle and the monkey.
** Snake Oiler is one of the whiniest and most annoying villains to appear onscreen. Though granted, that's likely the point.

* CreatorsPet: The producers grossly overestimated how much the bulk of the audience would like Spritle.

** While mainly nameless extras, racers die ''a lot'' in this series. And apparently this is the norm.

** While mainly nameless extras, racers die ''a lot'' in this series. And apparently this is the norm. Because the anime came from the Sixties, depressingly, [[TruthInTelevision it actually kind of was.]]
