Go To
Crazy Frog Racer is a Racing Game starring the infamous Crazy Frog, or The Annoying Thing, consisting of two games. The first one was released the 21 of November 2005 while the second one was released the 1st of December 2006. Both games were made by the same company, the French developer Neko Entertainment.

Both games were released on PlayStation 2 and PC.

Crazy Frog Racer games contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Adaptational Modesty: Crazy Frog lacks his visible penis from the videos here.
  • The Artifact: The second game reuses the first game's intro movie, but it's rather outdated this time around due to 1. the characters added in the sequel not being present and 2. Matilda still appearing at the end of it despite not appearing anywhere else in the game.
  • Bonus Feature Failure: If you manage to beat all the four cups in the first game, you can unlock a Secret Character, Matilda. Which is just a lambda crazy cow.
  • Canon Foreigner:
    • Everyone in the first game was created specifically for said game, barring the title character and the robots that appeared in the music videos.
    • The second game brings us the Annoying Drone, a robotic version of the titular Crazy Frog.

  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Matilda, despite being the sole Secret Character in the first game, is completely absent from the second game's roster.
  • The Cutie: Ellie. At least by appearance...
  • Evil Chef: Michel, judging from his Slasher Smile and tendency to wave his hatchet around.
  • Flat Character: Most of the playable racers created specifically for the game don't have much regarding personality, since the game's genre doesn't really allow for Character Development.
  • Fragile Speedster: Crazy Frog, the Holiday Thing and Ellie are really fast and have amazing acceleration, but don't turn particularly well and tend to get bumped around by everyone else.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Crazy Frog is racing with a Drone (the red and black robots that debuted in the Axel F video clip).
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Jack (fittingly enough) and the Annoying Drone have decent stats all around, but don't excel in anything except road-holding.

  • Jiggle Physics: Present on Ellie's breasts and Crazy Frog's belly.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Matilda, who has above-average stats in everything: she has 3/4 in speed, acceleration and road-holding in a game where 2/4 is considered average, and is so heavy she actually has 5 points in weight in a game where no other character has any stat above 4.
  • Mighty Glacier: Drone and Sub Drone, who have poor acceleration but a high top speed and weight.
  • Mission-Pack Sequel: The second game is almost exactly like the first game, albeit with some new characters based off the music videos, an overhauled item system and some new minigames. It even reuses the exact same track layouts from the first game, but with different skins as to avoid overusing their repetitive Skyscraper City theme.
  • Moveset Clone: Each of the four newcomers in the second game shares their stats with another racer on the roster:
  • Palmtree Panic: The Beach Cup from Crazy Frog Racer 2, based on the second Popcorn video clip.
  • Skyscraper City: The City Cup from Crazy Frog Racer 2, based on the Axel F clip. Another fun fact: it's also the ONLY landscape of the first game.
  • Slippy-Slidey Ice World: The Ice Cup from Crazy Frog Racer 2.
  • The Smurfette Principle: With Matilda's removal, Ellie is the only playable female in the second game's roster.
  • Space Zone: The two final tracks of the Football Cup, based on Crazy Frog's dream in the We Are The Champion video clip.


How well does it match the trope?
