* HamAndCheese: Kate Nauta in ''TheTransporter 2''. It's pretty clear from her line delivery and facial expressions that once she read the script (which calls for her character, [[TheDragon Lola]], to spend half her screentime wearing a soaking-wet negligee, disheveled hair and runny eye makeup while dual-wielding pistols and gunning down all manner of individuals), she decided to take it as far as she could, and she looks to be the only person not to deliver the cornball material in a serious manner.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Darren "Wall Street" Bettencourt]] is a smug [[AgentPeacock dandy]] and wealthy businessman who doubles as a human trafficker. Working to deliver a load of 400 Chinese charges into the French Mediterranean to [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil sell the lot of them as slaves]], Wall Street attempts to have the titular transporter, Frank Martin, killed after he clues into his scheme and finds the daughter of his associate Mr. Kwai. Murdering one of his own men in the hospital to [[HeKnowsTooMuch keep him from talking]] and having Frank's own house blown up to kill him, Wall Street uses his own position to frame Frank when he's finally cornered and smugly inform him five of the charges died on the way to France before knocking Frank out.

* TheScrappy: Valentina from the third movie. She's easy on the eyes, surrounded by a [[BlackAndGrayMorality black and gray cast]], in a franchise with over-the-top villains and character flaws, and is supposed to be sympathetic. Standing out as obnoxious under those circumstances is something of an accomplishment.

* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: Pretty much all of the fights form the first movie, the bus station one in particular. In the second movie, he kills eleven {{Mooks}} with a ''firehose''! Dry firehose, by the way.
** How about how Frank turns the tables on the BigBad in part 3 with the exploding bracelet?

* {{Sequelitis}}: While some people will argue that the second film is just as good as (if not better than) the first one, while the third film does have it's moments, most people say it's not up to par with the first two. The fourth movie was hit hard by this trope though, with both critics and fans panning it for lacking the charm of the earlier entries, and the lack of Jason Statham.

* ReplacementScrappy: A DownplayedTrope example. Ed Skrien is not Frank Martin as far as the Transporter fanbase is concerned but no one really has anything bad to say about his performance. It's more a case of a HardActToFollow and OvershadowedByAwesome.

* BrokenBase: The lack of Jason Statham in the fourth movie. Is Ed Skrein a decent replacement as a younger Frank Martin, or is ''The Transporter'' without Jason Statham like ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious'' without Vin Diesel?
