YMMV: Tony Hawk's Underground
  • Crazy Awesome: A lot. Notably, doing a Mctwist over a goddamn police helicopter.
    • You can play as Bigfoot riding a chainsaw in THUG2. Why? Fuck you, that's why.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: A lot of it. There's a reason Nintendo Power started calling its annual Best Licensed Sountrack award "The Tony Hawk Award".
  • Good Bad Bugs: THUG2 has a brilliant one in the Los Angeles level in Classic Mode. The level was a remake of the one from Tony's Hawks Pro Skater 3 and is built around the same code, being virtually identical. Because of the additions since its original release - getting off your board and skitching) it is possible to jump onto an area of highway you were originally not supposed to go to. There, you can skitch on one of the cars and this will enable you to enter the background, underneath the level. The ground around is solid and you can walk around for quite a while.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Neversoft opening sequence for the game features a skater being pulled into the sewers by a monster. His bones then get tossed up onto the road...
  • Sequelitis: The second game to those who weren't overly thrilled to see THUG's surprisingly good story followed up with "Jackass: The Game".
  • Take That, Scrappy!: After inducing much rage in the audience of the first game, Eric Sparrow spends THUG2 screaming like a little girl and pissing himself. By the time he's eliminated from the tour, even Bam's actively trying to get rid of him and Eric's on Bam's team.
