  • Border Patrol: They came packing some serious heat. Maps were usually cordoned off within Insurmountable Valleys...except, for a determined player, they were surmountable. If you managed to climb up and ride more than a few feet into the vast flat wastelands outside the valley, you would get blasted away by an invisible cannon, and then comically plummet back to the stage to a stock "bomb dropping" sound effect. Arguably an instance of highly aggressive Invisible Walls.

  • Gravity Barrier: See above.
  • Level Editor: The original Motocross Madness contained a separate track editor program that allowed users to make their own supercross tracks for use in the game. It even allowed for their tracks to cross over, allowing riders to jump over straightaways that they've either passed through before or haven't passed yet. However, it did not allow for the creation of any canyon-style supercross tracks.
  • Press X to Die: Despite the "Big Kahuna Dumpster" trick (space bar) looking similarly to another one, it always threw the player off the bike.
