YMMV: Tokyo Xtreme Racer

  • Base Breaker: Zero's car. Some fans were not pleased to see that he drives a Toyota Corolla in TXR 3 instead of his usual Porsche 911 from TXR 0
    • Speed King is also a victim of this, having his R34 swapped out for his Impreza in Drift and ITC.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The whole series is filled with this. Take Nu Beat for example.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Out of every Wanderer in the series, Zero managed to become the most popular one. (He was part of Quirky Miniboss Squad in the first TXR game.)
    • Rolling Guy (aka Downhill Guy) for being the very first team the player faces in almost every game, and for being comprised of AE 86 drivers.
    • Speed King is this among all the bosses.
  • It's Easy, so It Sucks: Import Tuner Challenge gets flack for being the easiest game in the series. It's even possible to beat the entire game without losing to a single opponent.
  • Most Annoying Sound: Every time the announcer shouts ACTION! during the drift segments in TXRD 2's category races. Whether you're good at this mode or not, this will get on your nerves eventually.
    • The riff that plays every time a Wanderer rejects your request to race.
    • The police siren that plays when the player gets a speeding ticket. Bonus points for also being a Scrappy Mechanic.
  • Narm: Everyone from Another Heaven has some pretty disturbing names. What name does their leader go by? Brown Satan.
    • The opening intros to Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka try to make the player fill that racing is this act of fierce battle, but ends up sounding like complete jargon.
  • That One Boss: D3 from TXR 3 are absolute hell to beat. Not only do you have to race all three of them, but you have to do it all in one attempt.
  • That One Level: Hokkaido in Drift 2. A dirt track with occasional tarmac sections. If you cannot handle it, you will be thrown out in the dust.
  • The Woobie: Every member of Wind Stars has went through some kind of harsh sruggle that you can't help but feel sorry for them.
