->"''The 267th Neo Yokio Grand Prix promises to be the best yet. The eyes of the world are on this glamorous city-state as the best of the best gather for one of sport's most elegant and dangerous competitions. The race is 20 miles through the streets of Neo Yokio. The course is challenging, running through the narrow pathways of Long Island Walled City, the halls of The Guggenheim and even dipping underwater for the infamous Sea Beneath 14th St. Tunnel.\\
The current world champ, Mark Radicchio of Giappone, is the favorite. He'll have his work cut out for him against drivers like Dave 1 of French Canada and Mila Malevich of the Soviet Union.\\
We wish the drivers the best of luck, and we pray to the God of Death to spare as many of them as possible.''"
--> '''Television Announcer''', on the excitement surrounding the 267th Neo Yokio Grand Prix




* DoesNotDrive: Helena grew up in the city -- she doesn't know how to drive a car, and while she can wear Mila's costume before the race to avoid suspicion, she can't use the race as an opportunity to sneak into the Lincoln Tunnel. That means Kaz is stuck in the driver's seat.



* FrenchJerk: The French-Canadian racer. Rude to the other racers, and accuses the Russian racer Mila of "stealing" the races from him.

* InSeriesNickname: Helena St. Tessoro is dubbed "Helena Saint Terrorist," but that could just be Lexy and Gottlieb's usual lingo.



* RivalsTeamUp: After Helena blew up the Bachelor Board, Arcangelo dropped his pretentious attitude and sent Kaz a peace offering. When Kaz took Mila's place as the driver of the Soviet Union's race car, he ended up attracting the violent attentions of the French-Canadian driver (who was itching to even the score with Mila). Arcangelo offered to DrawAggro "for a homie," and got Kaz to admit that they were friends before sacrificing his own car to take out the French-Canadian driver, thus helping Kaz escape.

!! I'm Starting to Think Neo Yokio's Not the Greatest City in the World Contains Examples of:

* DrawAggro: When the French-Canadian driver tracks down the Russian car (with Kaz disguised as Mila in the driver's seat), he's more focused on wrecking Mila's car than he is on winning. Arcangelo, who's made a truce with Kaz, keeps the French-Canadian driver busy while Kaz escapes.
* FrenchJerk: The French-Canadian racer. Rude to the other racers, and accuses the Russian racer Mila of "stealing" the races from him.
* FriendOrIdolDecision: During the last stretch of the Grand Prix, Kaz has to decide whether to beat his opponent (Cathy's new boyfriend), or aid Helena in her escape from Neo Yokio. He decides to forego showing up Cathy's new boy friend, even though it turns out Helena was using him as a decoy.
* {{Hobos}}: Many of the denizens of the Walled City, the slummiest slums in Neo Yokio.
* OutOfGenreExperience: The series has so far been a slice-of-life comedy with some supernatural drama thrown in, but during the last half of the last episode it turns into a racing anime.
* TitleDrop: Said by Kaz after a harrowing drive through the slums of Neo Yokio.
