* SoBadItsGood: If you gave a hyperactive 10-year-old boy $7,000,000 and a case of Mountain Dew, this is ''exactly'' the movie he'd make; it strikes the perfect balance between breathtakingly stupid and cool as hell. Pop it in, [[WatchItStoned fix some daiquiris, and have a ball]].

* EarWorm: While most of the music is okay, the main theme and its variations are epic-sounding and will get stuck in your head. The best examples are the version that plays over the intro cinematic when you boot up the game and the version that plays during the Elite races.

* EarWorm: While most of FridgeLogic: Look at the music is okay, cars closely whenever you get the main theme and its variations are epic-sounding and will get stuck in your head. The best examples are opportunity. ''They don't have any actual drivers''. They must be remotely controlled, or the version that plays over the intro cinematic when you boot up the game and the version that plays during the Elite races.
'show' is a highly advanced virtual reality simulation.
* {{HSQ}}:{{Narm}}: "We need bigger guns!"

** Another strike against Monty: He occasionally Monty would slip up and inadvertently give an answer to at least one part of a question before all three contestants had the opportunity to answer.

** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoGBIjfCZk0 music]] that plays during Elite Races, when it reaches it's highest point, is easily classifiable as this. ''Especially'' if you are blazing ahead and leaving the so-called Elites eating your dust.

* SoOkayItsAverage: The reception for the PSP port of the game. While it still retained the gameplay of it's HD counterparts as well as adding one more track, the graphical limitations of the engine definitely hurt the gameplay.

%%* General example. SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: Any time a contestant answered all three parts of the same question in the [[SpeedRound Countdown Round]], especially in the Creator/{{ABC}} version, since the player in the lead needed only three correct answers to win the game.

* MomentOfAwesome:
** Pulling off a Level 2 Power Play and taking out nearly the entire grid in one blow.
** Jumping over all other cars after a particularly long jump, staying on the lead while dodging falling cranes and cars set aflame like a lunatic, stylishly finishing off a stunned opponent by ramming him against some crates...
** [[NoSell Surviving a Level 2 Power Play]]. Considering a Level 2 Power Play is something of a LimitBreak, speeding away from one unharmed can make you feel like a Determinator on wheels. Bonus points if you escaped by the skin of your teeth.
** Getting certain achievements are MADE of this:
*** Zero to Hero: Wreck the [[KillEmAll ENTIRE GRID]], and make your way from dead last to first, with one Route Changer Power Play. Taken UpToEleven if you get the specific ones like Frequent Flyer, or Swept Away.
*** [[TitleDrop Split/Second]]: Win a race by less than a second. Made more awesome if pulled off in an [[BossBattle Elite Race]].
*** Untouchable: Win a race without crashing. Also more awesome in an Elite Race.
*** Fearless: Overtake 5 Trucks in Survival mode. [[OneHitPointWonder In Sudden Death]]. NervesOfSteel mandatory.
*** Season Champion: Win the Split/Second Season Championship. This WILL make you feel like a BadassDriver, with only Perfection (win EVERY EVENT), being more awesome.
** On a Meta level, the fact that Disney Interactive Studios, which usually made movie tie-in games of varying quality, came up with such an awesome game not based on a previous IP...kinda like the Disney theme parks of yore.

to:

* BestLevelEver: The Quarry track from the Onslaught DLC. It's an incredibly twisty route set in a cool environment and, more importantly, ''stuffed to the gills'' with unique Power Plays. Seriously, you can't drive ten feet without being able to blow something up.

Added DiffLines:

* SignatureScene: The crashing plane on the Airport Terminal track is basically the go-to example for how crazy Power Plays can get.


* FridgeLogic: Look at the cars closely whenever you get the opportunity. ''They don't have any actual drivers''. They must be remotely controlled, or the 'show' is a highly advanced virtual reality simulatio-- I'll just stop there.
