* AntiClimaxBoss: [[spoiler:Lola in the second film. You'd expect her to give a better fight but Frank dispatches her quite easily.]]
* 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?
* CargoShip: In ''2'' after Frank demolishes a garage-full of mooks, the Jamaican cab driver Frank used to get there is seen speaking soothingly to the yellow Porsche he's hiding in. At the end of the movie we see he's nicked the car and turned it into a Porsche cab, to the envy of his fellow cabbies.
** You just know this trope applies to Frank when no-one's looking.
* ClicheStorm
* CompleteMonster: [[AgentPeacock Darren "Wall Street" Bettencourt]] is a smug 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.
* EvilIsSexy: Lola, so much. Assuming that you aren't turned off by how creepy she is.
* HamAndCheese: Kate Nauta in ''Film/Transporter2''. 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.
* HoYay: Some fans find homosexual imagery in the films:
** Frank ''sucks the last breath out of a dead man's lungs'' to stay underwater and evade the villains' gunfire.
** Frank covers himself in motor oil to fight a gang of {{Mooks}}, and one of them almost slides head-first into his crotch.
** Every movie has a male villain who physically touches Frank when talking with him.
** (From the series): Frank and Jim in episode 2.
* 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?
* ReplacementScrappy: A DownplayedTrope example. Ed Skrein 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 ToughActToFollow and OvershadowedByAwesome.
* RomanticPlotTumor: Frank and Audrey in part 2.
* 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.
* {{Sequelitis}}: While some people will argue that the second film is just as good as (if not better than) the first one, most people would say the third is up to par with the previous two, though it does have its moments. 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.
* SoBadItsGood: Some viewers enjoyment of the films was greatly increased by viewing them this way. [[UpToEleven Especially the second one]].
* WhatAnIdiot: Johnson's inevitable death scene in the third movie. [[spoiler:Frank attaches the exploding bracelet to him, him to the car, and drops the whole package off the back of a moving train (long story). Instead of doing the sensible thing (remaining attached to the car, landing on the tracks, living) Johnson detaches himself from the car, remains in the train, and is promptly blown the hell up when the car is too far away.]]
** [[spoiler: Johnson probably didn't want to got to jail, so he decided it would be better [[TakingYouWithMe to take Frank and Valentina]] with him by blowing himself up. The look on his face 1 second before the bracelet detonates says it all.]]
