* FridgeBrilliance: In ''2 Fast 2 Furious'', Markham tries to pair Brian with an Agent Dunn who's first seen drinking a soda from a cup labelled "Gallo's Pizza". Brian tests his tuning knowledge by asking if a Gallo 12 or a Gallo 24 would be a better motor for his Skyline. When Dunn suggests a Gallo 24, Brian rejects him as a partner. At first, it looks like Brian rejected him because he wasn't up on automotive knowledge, but Brian's question highlights a better reason to reject him: Dunn failed to remember what pizza place he got his soda at. Brian doesn't want to put his life in the hands of someone that unobservant.

** Han's fate in ''Tokyo Drift'' comes off as this considering that [[Film/TheForceAwakens years later in an unrelated movie]], [[spoiler:the character to whom he derives his name also died.]]

* RuleOfSeanConnery: The series started attracting considerable praise the same time The Rock was added to the cast.

* RuleOfSeanConnery: The series started attracting considerable praise the same time The Rock was added to the cast. Jason Statham and Kurt Russell added some more come the seventh movie.



* SignatureSong: Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" is far and away the most popular and most successful song to have ever been featured in the series.

* SignatureSong: Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" is far and away the most popular and most successful song to have ever been featured in the series. For the [[GaidenGame Gaiden Movie]] ''Tokyo Drift'', the titular song by the Teriyaki Boyz is arguably a close second.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first three films focused heavily on car culture amidst the relatively small time and contained criminal affairs of the plots. The fourth and especially fifth movies helped transition the franchise into the more action-oriented heist movies known today. Paul Walker was noted to feel relived when the changes occurred, believing that he had forcibly tried to look cool as per what the tuner scene needed.

** In-universe example. In the ending montage of ''Fast Five'', Roman and Tej got a hold of two Koenigsegg [=CCXRs=], very rare sports cars with only four of them existed in the world. Roman said that he got his from making a deal with a sheikh in Abu Dhabi. [[spoiler: Comes ''Furious 7'', the crew actually got to visit Abu Dhabi and infiltrated an Arabian prince's party and ended up stealing a Lykan Hypersport, itself also a very rare sports car with only 7 units produced.]]

** In ''Furious 6'', various characters over the course of the film refer to Hobbs as different members of ''Film/TheAvengers''. Come 2014, and Hobbs' actor has been cast in a superhero film, [[Film/DCCinematicUniverse just not a Marvel one]].

* AwardSnub: Anyone else willing to bet that the fact that it was written for Furious 7 is the only reason "See You Again" was not nominated for a Best Song Oscar?
