** 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.

** ''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]].

** Individual drivers throughout the series often tend to have questionable motivations for risking their lives. Angel, Thumper's new driver from ''Head-On'', is one such stand-out, risking life and limb and leaving a trail of destruction in her wake.... just so Calypso can pimp her ride. ''It has a freaking flame-thrower, lady, what more can you possibly want!?''

* BaseBreaker: The direction the [=PS3=] {{Revival}} took for the series; giving more engaging and complex storylines to four distinctive drivers, thus relagating 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 the characters more developed stories as well as individual cars.
* BrokenBase: The people who like 3 and 4 against the people who like the rest of the series.

* AwesomeMusic: The series' use of licensed music is pretty well respected, using TheRollingStones' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4irXQhgMqg Paint It Black]] in Twisted Metal Black, and a selection of Rob Zombie songs in 3 and 4 - those songs being arguably the most fondly remembered parts of [[DorkAge that era in the franchise]].

** Calypso both in and out of universe. His portrayals vary as does where his powers come from and one's interpretation can come from whether or not one considers the games to be in canon with one another. He's pretty stoic in Black but very hammy in the first game. In Twisted metal 1, his powers came from a demon named Black, in 2 he stole them from the demon Minion, in the reboot, the preacher implies that he is the devil himself. His interactions with his daughter seem to cast him as a more WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, and the control he has over his power of wishes is put into question.

** 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.
** The bigger problem is that in the PS3 game, the Story mode consists of only three characters, and they're all evil mass murderers, with no sympathetic or anti-hero characters to offer up as in the previous games. While they all get what they deserve, always controlling a villain really does sap from the experience. Contrast the coolness of Sweet Tooth in ''VideoGame/TwistedMetalBlack'', where his goal is to toy with and eventually kill Calypso (something the player can rally behind), to the more disturbing version in the following gen, where his goal is to kill his daughter, the "bitch who got away."
