Cyclomaniacs is a trilogy of flash games created by longAnimals, turboNuke, and robotJAM (the first and third of those are playable characters in Two and Three). The games can be found here, here, here, and here. Needs Wiki Magic Love, considering the amount of tropes in the character selections alone.

This game provides examples of:

  • Absurdly Spacious Sewer / Down the Drain: The Drains level from Cyclomaniacs 2
  • Advertisement:
  • Accidental Athlete: Mushy Peas apparently started his cycling career after getting caught up in a race during a high-speed chase.
  • Acrofatic: Pedal, Presta, Bad Viking, Winalot, The Wasp, Rocket Panda, and Ellie Fant
  • Action Mom: Killer Chick
  • Affably Evil: The Haddock in Epic.
  • The Ahnold: Barry Zooka
  • Alien Geometries: MC Triangle; as an M. C. Escher Expy it's to be expected.
  • All Cavemen Were Neanderthals: Subverted with Grunt Boulders. He's actually from The '90s.
  • All There in the Manual: The characters's bikes are given more explanation and justification in the Walkthrough.
  • Always Night: The Horror-themed levels in Epic and Zombooka land in 2
  • Amusement Park: The location of the sequel.
  • Armor Is Useless: Several characters wear suits of armor, bullet-proof vests, and helmets, but it's ultimately justified in that they aren't exactly useful in a bicycle race.

  • Asteroids Monster: The Pizzaroids minigame in 2, naturally.
  • Brainwashed: Several racers from the first game show up like this in the sequel to justify not being able to play as them from the beginning
  • Cool Car: Several, but special note goes to The Prof, who's car has Nuclear Powered Wheels
  • Excuse Plot: The second and third games.
    Cyclomaniacs is back, set in a movie studio, dominated by a megalomaniac Haddock. Or something.
  • Giant Foot of Stomping: One appears when you go the wrong way at the starting line.
  • Inventing the Wheel: Grunt did this, apparently.
  • Side View
  • Still Wearing the Old Colors: Bavis Trickle still using and flying his Taxi flag, despite not being a taxi driver anymore.
  • Suddenly Voiced: The Cyclo King in 2, and the Haddock in Epic
