** The direction the [=PS3=] {{Revival}} took for the series; giving more engaging and complex storylines to four distinctive drivers, thus relegating the past drivers to oblivion and making their cars free for {{Mook}}s from the aforementioned quartet to drive; this rubs the wrong way for fans of the old installments where one could see each vehicle (and driver) getting a backstory, while others likes only 4 characters getting better developed stories, instead of many drivers getting {{Excuse Plot}}s to force their presence in the games. However, this does still feel off considering ''Twisted Metal: Black'' managed to give a much larger roster of characters more developed stories as well as individual cars.

** Quatro and Orbital are probably the only characters introduced in ''4'' that fans like, though this is attributed to either making a wish that was worth a damn, or being a badass bounty hunter that doesn't fall for the traps of ''Twisted Metal''. It also helps that the rest of the cast are, put very bluntly, annoying and cartoonish.

* GameBreaker: Playable versions of bosses tend to be these. There's a reason why they are usually not available at the start of the game, having to be unlocked either through game progress or cheat codes. Twisted Metal 4, however is notable with it's super variants of the previous characters (Super Axel's shockwave for example, knocked all enemies REALLY far away, had 360 degree coverage, and set fire to them as well), or just plain cheap like Moon Buggy's Quasars.

** Averted with Twisted Metal 2, which is also considered one of the best games in the series, but has more of a 90's punk rock feel, and is far more upbeat and colorful than the above two games.

** ''3'' and ''4'', which are considered the low-points in the series, both contain music from Music/RobZombie . Nearly a decade later, Mr. Zombie would direct both of the [[Film/Halloween2007 Halloween]] [[Film/HalloweenII2009 remakes]], which are considered the low-points of '''that''' [[Franchise/{{Halloween}} series]].

** Sweet Tooth and Dollface's stories in the [=PS3=] rival. The more the story advances, the more the player learns about how horrible both of them are, and has no reason to want them to get what they want. [[spoiler: Probably why they end up as [[AssholeVictim Asshole Victims]].]] Although Sweet Tooth [[SerialKiller hasn't been exactly the nicest guy]], it's kinda expected.

** Preacher is has a recurring role throughout the story mode and is playable in Multiplayer. Not only is he not involved in any of the story missions, but after a cut scene ending with him promising that Calypso's reign of terror will end that night, [[spoiler: he is next seen trapped in Calypso's painting at the very end of the game.]] Presumably a whole year later, too.

** The Freeze attack from 2012. Everyone can do it, and it homes in on the cars, meaning that you will constantly be getting frozen without warning throughout a battle and forced to mash buttons to restart your engine. It's especiallu frustrating if you're playing as Darkside, who attacks by ramming.

* WhatAnIdiot: In the reboot, Dollface at first tells Calypso what she wants very simply and exactly. Then for some reason she decides to tell him again, but with vague terms so that he has some wordplay to take seriously.

* Sweet Tooth in Twsited Metal 4. Despite being promoted to BigBad, he's inexplicably turned into a mute and needs another clown to speak for him. Unless the ending wish directly involves him, he's usually juggling in the background, no more significant than the other clowns.
