* LethalJokeCharacter: All of the Toy Cars easily qualify, but the Toy Hunter Takedown 4x4 takes the cake. It can plow through traffic with reckless abandon and not even hitting a bus head on isn't enough to total it. The only downside is that it shares its full size version's lack of agility.

*** The [[http://burnout.wikia.com/wiki/Carson_Extreme_Hot_Rod Carson Extreme Hot Rod]] features Locked boost: once it's activated the car keeps boosting indefinitely unless the player crashes or manages to stop the car. Because of this, it can be potentially uncontrollable for less expert drivers. However, once you get acclimatised to the overwhelming speed and acceleration, it's easily one of the fastest cars in the game, and can even pull off the most barrel rolls in a single jump out of all the cars available.

* DownloadableContent: ''Burnout Paradise'' had a ton made for it. There were over twenty new cars, motorcycles, and an entire island added to the game.
** For point of reference, the game first came out in January 2008. It continued getting DLC all the way through June of 2009, and only the more recent expansions had Criterion making gamers pay cash for it.
*** This may have been because there was a bit of ObviousBeta going on here, and everything released for free was probably meant to be in the vanilla game. Search up the whole debacle about not being to reset races on the fly for an example of this.
