Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure is a Disney skateboarding game featuring characters from Toy Story, The Lion King (1994) and Tarzan, as well as several real-life kids (decided by a contest) as members of the Extreme Skate Crew. It was developed by Toys For Bob and published by Activision in 2003.

Tropes that apply to Disney Extreme Skate Adventure:

  • Adaptation Expansion: Several of the worlds have undergone significant expansions in order to make them viable skating arenas. It's especially notable with the Toy Story levels: Andy's room has a bathroom, Pizza Planet has a dining area and kitchen and Zurg's World has an indoors area unlike anything seen in the In-Universe Toy Story 2 game.
  • And Your Reward Is Clothes: By completing tasks, you can unlock additional clothing choices and skateboard designs for the kid skaters.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Each of the three universes has a major villain you have to defeat:

    • Toy Story: Emperor Zurg
    • The Lion King: Scar
    • Tarzan: Clayton
  • Cast Herd: Characters are arranged by series. Fictional characters can only skate in worlds from their home series, while the kid skaters can skate in any world.
  • Defeat Means Playable: Defeating Zurg in the final Toy Story world unlocks him as a playable skater.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser:
    • Emperor Zurg can go skateboarding with his sworn enemy, Buzz Lightyear.
    • Simba has to race his treacherous uncle Scar through the latter's canyon as part of a friendly competition.
  • Hub World: Olliewood is a skateboarding-based city from which the kid skaters can access any of the Disney worlds by finding specially-marked portals.
  • Giant Squid: Not on-screen, but if you fall into the water around Clayton's Ship, you'll respawn with a message saying a giant squid threw you back overboard.

  • Guest Fighter: Real-life rapper Lil Romeo appears as an unlockable member of the Extreme Skate Crew.
  • Jungle Japes: Two of the Tarzan levels take place in jungle-themed areas; Jungle Treehouse features the house Tarzan's parents built in the opening above a large grassy area while Human Camp has a grinding area full of vines and an isolated rocky area near the rapids.
  • Leitmotif: Each skater has their own theme tune in the character select. For example, Woody has a western-sounding theme, while Timon and Pumbaa have a jazzy tune.
  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover: Between Toy Story, The Lion King (1994) and Tarzan. The three series don't directly interact with each other in any way and their skaters are restricted to their home worlds, but the kid skaters can access any world.
  • Mission-Pack Sequel: To Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4: the two games were published by Activision and even run on the same engine.
  • Product Placement: Olliewood prominently features a McDonald's restaurant and Nokia phone ads everywhere. Both also have missions that serve little purpose beyond advertising them further: the former has you deliver food around the city (which unlocks a pair of Ronald's clown shoes for the kid skaters) while the latter has you collecting various ringtones.
  • Secret Character: Each of the three universes has two secret skaters, with the Extreme Skate Crew having one unlockable member:
