* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Part of the reason why the movie didn't do too well is because it tried to keep the campy tone of the original series.

* VindicatedByHistory: As the years have gone on, the film has found several defenders and even a decent sized fanbase, with even Time Magazine and Den of Geek looking back at the film as being underappreciated, and is sometimes even compared to works like ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld and PacificRim in terms of quality.

* NarmCharm: The English dub. It may make everyone a MotorMouth, and be full of all kinds of weird [[VerbalTic verbal tics]]... and yet, the show wouldn't be nearly as beloved as it is without the corny acting.

** The narration dramatically reveals Racer X's true identity (it's Speed's brother!!) practically OnceAnEpisode, which goes from [[ViewersAreGoldfish annoying and slightly patronizing]] to ridiculously funny after about the fourth or fifth time it happens.

* 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.

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.
