** Temtesh Bay Course 2, from ''Fusion''. A veritable checklist of horrible track design decisions. It was so bad that it became part of a major in-universe race disaster when the backstory to ''Pure'' was released. According to the [=YouTube=] user Charlie Emery AKA [=HellfireWZ's=] video "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNSNHiCmA7A&t=1019 Wipeout - Circuits from Hell]]", the Medium Course is a [[NintendoHard travesty of a circuit]] filled with tricky corners, rock pillars and those [[PrecisionFStrike fuckin']] [[ScrappyMechanic annoying bulkheads which will NOT OPEN until you are VIRTUALLY ON TOP OF IT]]!! Also, [[FromBadToWorse it's even worse when played in reverse]], making Temtesh Bay Coure 2 itself the worst course in the entire series, putting Silverstream from the original game to shame.

* ContestedSequel: ''[[BaseBreaker Fusion]]'', despite being poorly-recieved, still has it's defenders.

** The Zone mode can be considered this to some players, because of it's DifficultyByAcceleration.

** Well, [[SarcasmMode this is an odd one]]. [[https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8427/7840533268_91ced29186_b.jpg The promotion art for the very first game]] is [[ParanoiaFuel downright unsettling]]. It features two wounded women with [[DeadlyNosebleed nosebleed]] as [[BloodSplatteredInnocents their clothes has been soaked with blood]]. It's just like if the developers of the game kidnapped them and tortured the poor girls as an attempt to force them to promote the game. Also, the other version of the art refers the game itself as "[[BloodSport a dangerous game]]". Thankfully, the unsettling art is staged, but still...

* MemeticMutation: ''[=WipEout=]'' predicted Brexit.[[note]]Before the events of ''Pure'', the United Kingdom splintered from FEISAR to resurrect Icaras. Come 2016, with the UK holding a referendum on whether they should stay in the European Union or not, with the "leave the EU" side narrowly winning.[[/note]]

* ReplacementScrappy: Unlike the far better-received ''Fusion''-debuting teams [[TheMafiya Tigron]] and [[BewareTheNiceOnes Van-Uber]] teams, G-Tech ended up being far and away the most loathed team in the franchise for being a replacement to AG Systems.

* TheScrappy: G-Tech. They likely represent ''Good Technology'' (Currently known as ''VML London''), the graphic designers of ''Fusion''. They're also loathed for replacing one of the fan-favorite teams, [[JapanTakesOverTheWorld AG-Systems]], ripping off [[EnsembleDarkhorse Qirex]]'s color scheme and their craft ''REVVER'' being inferior compared to the other crafts such as Auricom's [[MightyGlacier "T-808"]] or Tigron's [[LightningBruiser "BULL-666"]].

* FriendlyFandoms: Back in the days there used to be a ''major'' FandomRivalry with ''VideoGame/FZero'', but as time went on the two fanbases began overlapping. It further helps the fact that both series are currently laying dormant.



** In ''HD'', "GOLD MEDAL AWARDED."

** In ''HD'', "GOLD MEDAL AWARDED." It's especially awesome if you're playing on [[NintendoHard Elite difficulty]]. Same story goes for its ''2048'' equivalent: "ELITE PASS."



** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNXopiH70WU The intro from ''Wip3out'' is pretty much this]], which features the reversed animation of the Goteki 45 craft causing a [[SuicideAttack suicide explosion]] towards the FEISAR and AG Systems crafts in the finish line, blowing them up. Also, the intro also featured a [[DroneOfDread creepy drone]] (even though it uses a sample of "Piranha" track by DJ Sasha) through out the entire cinematic cutscene.

* 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 stand 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.

** 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.
