Added DiffLines:

** Triakis in ''Wipeout Pure'', a craft which (possibly thanks to a bug) had disproportionately good handling for a high-speed heavyweight, making it a MasterOfAll. The inevitable nerf/fix was addressed in the fluff for ''Pulse'', which stated Triakis' experimental Reverse Inertial Dampening system had been banned and their trophy stripped between seasons.

Added DiffLines:

* Who could forget about ''VideoGame/KirbyAirRide'' and its resident game-destroyer, the Dragoon? Only available in the City Trial mode from acquiring its three pieces, this Air Ride Machine boasts some outright incredible stats. On the ground, it's not much slower than the Formula Star, and its offense and defense, while not Hydra-tier godly still outclass most other Air Ride machines (Also, unlike the Hydra, it doesn't need to be fully charged to get going). However, where the Dragoon truly shines is in the air, where it has absolutely unparalleled gliding ability, allowing complete dominance in the air, and, barring a GoodBadBug from the Bulk Star, is basically an Automatic win in the Long Jump and High Jump events.

Added DiffLines:

** ''[[VideoGame/NeedForSpeedMostWanted Most Wanted 2005]]'' had the Lamborghini Gallardo. When fully upgraded, it pretty much wrecks the competition with excellent handling, acceleration and top speed, making it useful for both street races (especially Speedtrap races) ''and'' pursuits. Ming, #6 on the Blacklist, has a Gallardo with nearly maxed out performance, so obtaining it via pinkslip gives the player an advantage over the other racers without having to shell out a fortune to buy a Gallardo at a car shop and modifying it.


* From ''VideoGame/WanganMidnightMaximumTune 4'' and its successors: The Mazda RX-7 Type-R, also known by its chassis code [=FD3S=] or simply the FD. Best base grip of all cars allowing it to take corners like a champ, and solid speed and acceleration as well, making it the MasterOfAll and the dominant car of time attack boards on nearly all courses. [[BrokenBase Disputes]] regularly arise over whether it's fair to use one or not, leading to [[{{Scrub}} "the FD is OP and I hate everyone who uses it"]] and "it's used by time attackers everywhere ''for a reason''" camps.

*** [=GT6=] meanwhile introduces the Gordon Murray-designed Light Car Company Rocket, an Caterham-class lightweight track car with appearance of a 50s UsefulNotes/FormulaOne race car. True to the car's name, it is a game breaker considering it a weapon from 550 PP class (which the car isn't actually eligible for, as the car is rated 556 PP, but even with maximum ballast, remains featherlight at 590 kg - the factory weight is 390 kg) to [[MarathonLevel 24 Minutes of Nurburgring and Le Mans]].

** No need to buy the Fortune Island expansion pack, you can turn the island of the UK into your very own. All you need is the Thatch Corner beach cottage and any decent S1+ off road or 4WD to smash the game even worse than the SAS smashed the IRA. A good vehicle can rack up drift and wreckage skills for easy skill points and influence. When you get bored of that head to the sand dunes a short drive away, your chosen vehicle will be more stable and less likely to flip or crash. And once you tire of that get speed, daredevil, near miss, lucky escape points on the massive M1 highway just nearby. You can conceivably get ten skill points every two or three minutes, and with the points and chains you put up your influence will skyrocket.

** ''Forza Horizon 4'' introduced the Route Creator so anyone can create their own track from any of the official start points on the map. While the AI will follow it to the best of its ability, players soon took advantage of the AI's ArtificialStupidity to create a route up and down the freeway while giving the AI a path that takes them off the road. While taking advantage of the credit boost a player can obtain from beating [[HarderThanHard Unbeatable]] Drivatars, these tracks quickly oversaturated the Custom Routes list and gave the players hundreds of thousands of easy credits and influence for wheelspins.


* VideoGame/FZero'' has a few. X gave off quick speed boosts for grinding on the walls and GX had snaking (just like in Mario Kart DS) and spaceflying (which can shave off ''minutes'' of your time).
