* MeaningfulName: The "EMPEROR" vanity plate on Iwasaki's Skyline coupe in ''Import Tuner Challenge''. [[spoiler:Emperor is a direct translation of his street name in the Japanese versions of the series, Jintei. In English localization of ''Zero'', his street name is Speed King, with ''Drift'' changing it to Speed Emperor, ''[=TXR3=]'' leaving the name untranslated, and ''Drift 2'' and ''[=ITC=]'' reversing it to "Emperor Speed" and "King Speed", respectively.]]

* MeaningfulName: The "EMPEROR" vanity plate on Iwasaki's Skyline coupe in ''Import Tuner Challenge''. [[spoiler:Emperor comes from "Speed Emperor", which is a direct translation of his street name in the Japanese versions of the series, Jintei. In English localization of ''Zero'', his street name is Speed King, with ''Drift'' changing it to Speed Emperor, ''[=TXR3=]'' leaving the name untranslated, and ''Drift 2'' and ''[=ITC=]'' reversing it to "Emperor Speed" and "King Speed", respectively.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TeruTeruBozu: ''Drift 2'' has a function that can manipulate the next day or night's weather.


** From the same game, players are not told that they can edit the license plate of a car they own. This is important, as some of the "Wanderer" opponents have requirements that require a player to have on their license plate a specific prefecture, number combination, and/or hiragana character. It's kind of hard to set these if one doesn't know that they can edit their car's number plate after purchase.

Added DiffLines:

* DubInducedPlotHole: ''Tokyo Xtreme Racer Zero'' [[RaceLift changes most character names to Western-sounding ones]], but ''Tokyo Xtreme Racer 3'' doesn't, meaning that returning characters that should be recognizable by name aren't.

Added DiffLines:

* ThatManIsDead: In ''Import Tuner Challenge'', Iwasaki tells the player outright that the ''Speed King'' is dead. [[spoiler:What he's actually telling the player is that his ''Speed King'' days are long past.]]


Added DiffLines:

* UnusableEnemyEquipment: Many opponents in ''Import Tuner Challenge'' (disregarding team leaders and major bosses, as their cars can be unlocked for purchase, as-is, from the Custom Car shop) drive cars that do not have a stock version available to the player. The most glaring example would be all of the Rolling Guys, as they drive their usual [=AE86=] with their own differentiating visual mods, with the implication that the stock version of that car was planned to be in the Showroom to be purchased by the player, but cut for unknown reasons. Rolling 0's own [=AE86=] is available in the Custom Car shop after defeating him.

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Street Gambler's custom Toyota [=bB=] in ''[=Zero=]'' has a decal that says "[=SFGoodbitch=]", which is supposed to be a parody of [=BFGoodrich=] brand of tires.

Added DiffLines:

* Foreshadowing: If you're playing the Japanese version of ''Import Tuner Challenge'', ''Shutokou Battle X'', pay VERY close attention to the license plate of Iwasaki's Skyline [=350GT=] coupe. [[spoiler:It's the exact same plate that he has used on his [=R34=] in previous games, hinting at the fact that he's ''Jintei''/the ''Speed King''.]]

* SerialEscalation: One of the series' more recent games is ''Racing Battle C1 GP'' which takes the strong points of the main Shutoku Battle series (High-speed highway racing) and its Kaido Battle spinoffs (The drift physics and insane range of customisation options) and mashes them together with a plot best summed up as "Let's have a sanctioned racing league that not only takes place on established tracks such as Suzuka and Ebisu but also highways such as the Wangan and C1 Expressway that anybody can join from rookies with kei-cars to established pros with JGTC material!"
