Fridge: Twisted Metal

Fridge Brilliance
  • In Twisted Metal 3, the intro of the level London had Calypso talking about London and told the player to say hello to his "old friend." At first, I thought that Calypso knew about the British Royal Family because he said that right after he referred to the Buckingham Palace. Now I just realized, after almost 10 years, that Calypso was talking about Minion. As he is the boss that the player will face in London after defeating all the other oppositions. Counter Blitzkrieg
  • In Twisted Metal Black if you read Minion's coded messages you'd find that the entire game takes place in Sweet Tooth's head. With this in mind I suddenly realized that Darkside's ending makes a lot more sense. She was locked inside a mask and is fighting for the key, when she wins she must kill Mr. Creel, the man who locked her in the mask, if she wants the key. She does this then decides she doesn't want the key saying how great her mask is and then goes off to hunt for (and presumably kill) people like Mr. Creel. It seems stupid but consider Sweet tooth's fondness for his mask and his ending. He wants to remove a curse that causes his head to be on fire 24/7. Calypso gives him a cure but then says if he continues killing people it would wear off. He then rejects the offer within 10 seconds and kills Calypso. Put it this way they both decided to stay in their mask and hunt and kill people. What Darkside did is what Sweet tooth would've done.
  • The music that plays over the credits is "Paint it Black" by The Rolling Stones, which reflects on the outlook of a man who sees darkness and vile emissions in his world, and anything that challenges this needs to be changed to reflect this. Add into the fact that Black takes place entirely inside the mind of Needles Kane, better known as Sweet Tooth, and suddenly it all makes sense.
  • Of all the characters, Cage seems to be the only one not seeking revenge who gets his wish without Calypso screwing him over in any way. That is, until you realize that the "new pair of hands" that Calypso gives him are essentially just a series of sharp blades made into hand shapes. This may make killing a whole lot easier, but everything else involving his hands is going to be an exercise in futility.
    • Not only that, but he won't be able to wield a gun anymore. (And even if he manages to hold one, he doesn't have any fingers left, so he won't be able to pull the trigger.)
