- Crowning Music of Awesome: Pretty much the main thing Outrun is remembered for. To the point many subsequent sequels have kept it, and a couple of tracks even featured in the soundtrack of Bayonetta.
- Magnum Opus: Outrun 2006, big time.
- Most Wonderful Sound: From OutRun 2's Heart Attack mode: "Special Request!"
- Sequelitis: For a while when Sega didn't know what to do with the sequels, then averted with Outrun 2006.
