Trivia / Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

  • Ashcan Copy: THPS5 has been accused of being one, given the horrific state the game was released in and that Tony Hawk's deal with Activision was set to expire at the end of 2015.
  • B-Team Sequel: Tony Hawk Ride was the first game created by Robomodo after Activision reassigned Neversoft to Guitar Hero duty. To say that the results were not as well-received would be an understatement.
  • Colbert Bump: The Tony Hawk games were credited for creating a new wave of interest in the sport due to its popularity; more networks began showing pro competitions beyond ESPN's annual X Games and some of the lesser-known skaters who were playable characters got a career bump from the visibility.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: In THAW, Mindy is voiced by Cree Summer and the player character is voiced by Will Friedle. It's like Batman Beyond all over again!
  • No Export for You: Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2X, the special edition of Tony Hawk's 2, was only released on Xbox and only in the US. Featuring all the levels from Tony Hawks 1 and 2, as well as five levels that don't appear in other games, this understandably annoyed the many Pal PS2 owners.
    • Also, the PS2 Collectors Edition of American Wasteland features levels that don't appear anywhere else. This too, was only released in the US and only on PS2. However, two levels that are included are Las Vegas (renamed Casino) and Atlanta, both of which appear in Tony Hawks Underground 2 Remix, released worldwide for PSP.
  • Technology Marches On: The Secret Tapes have been replaced with DVDs since Project 8.
