**The [[spoiler:FEISAR Prototype]] in ''2048'' will test how well you can keep to your racing line and pass over speed-pads.



* TheWoobie: The back story for ''Icaras'' for ''Wipeout 3'' will surely make you feel bad for them. Might overlap with JerkassWoobie if you take in count that they were created as a publicity stunt and their {{scrub}}bish attitude during the championship.

* MagnumOpus: Either ''2097'', ''3'', ''HD'' or ''2048'' for the fans, though professional critics think ''Pure'' is this.

Added DiffLines:

* DracoInLeatherPants: Despite [[HeelFaceTurn turning good]] by the events of ''Pure'', quite a few fans wanted Goteki 45 to retain their AxCrazy [=F7200=] persona even after their reinstatement, even though their newer, lighter crafts have become extremely popular in the ''Pulse''[=/=]''HD Fury'' multiplayer scene.

* GameBreaker: Each game had one from ''2097'' onwards. The ''Piranha'' ship in ''2097'', the ''Assegai'' in ''3'', yet again the ''Piranha'' in ''Fusion'', the ''Triakis'' in ''Pure'', again the ''Assegai'' in ''Pulse'', the ''Goteki 45'' in ''HD'' and the ''AG-Systems Speed'' in ''2048''.

Added DiffLines:

* ButThouMust: Downplayed on tracks throughout the series where there is a split, with one route being longer but easier than the other; while there is nothing in theory stopping you using the easy route, in practice on harder difficulties you'll never keep up with the competition, forcing you to take the hard route.

Added DiffLines:

** Curly, the announcer in [=Wip3out=] is also widely loved. To this day many fans actively make demands to make a return for her in Formula Fusion.

* DifficultButAwesome: [[TheMovie The Game]]. Aside from airbrake control, it's mostly smooth sailing, but in order to compete at the highest level, you have to know every nook and cranny of every track like the back of your hand, such as where to use Turbos and where to barrel roll (including barrel roll spots on seemingly ''flat surfaces'' accessible only by side-shifting or nose pitching!) for example.

* AwesomeArt: One of the reasons why the series is much loved is the [[RuleOfCool cool stylized art]] and solid visual design.
** The first three games [[DesignStudentsOrgasm stands out in this department]], courtesy of The Designers Republic. Their return as artists in [[SpiritualSuccessor Formula Fusion]] is the reason why many a Wipeout fan got extremely hyped for its release.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Scoring a plasma bolt hit in ''2097''. Made anticlimactically easy in the third game and in the games after that, the weapon no longer did instant kill damage.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Icaras originally dissolved after ''wip3out'' due to the death of its eccentric owner, Burnston Burns. How did he die? [[BlackComedy He accidentally swallowed a balloon at a children's party!]]
