  • Awesome Music: This game has some amazing remixes from Halfbricks previous games. Then there's also completely original theme for Portal Mania.
  • Best Level Ever: Portal Mania maps for combining almost every available race track and their unique aesthetics.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: A jingle, that plays when you get 1st place. Usually accompanied by your character happily laughing and a sad grunt from last place racer.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • UFO Apocalypse changes backgrounds for it's stages (which are all reused from Linear maps), making it feel like an actual appocalypse. Flying saucers everywhere, fire, dark colored sky and Bounce Tunnels map having all the water dried out are all included.
    • Flappy Bomb is a Cartoon Bomb with wings... and a Skull for a Head. It makes unsettling noises when chasing for player in the last place and gets more and more creepier as it's about to explode.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: Special Events have Cooldown timer. Every time you collect one out of 10 rewards, you have to wait for 2 hours untill you can start collecting event-specific items again. To get the final reward (Event skin), you'll have to spend at least two days into the Event.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Slippy-Slidey Ice World-type stage could have been a great opportunity to represent Radical Rappelling... Yet it's actually used for Yeti Heights from Monster Dash. Some would agree that Vampire Kingdom or Zombie Metropolis would have been a better choice for a Monster Dash stages.
  • Unexpected Character:
    • Mari. Even if you are aware that, yes, Fruit Ninja has established lore and characters, you would probably expect Sensei or Katsuro to be added first.
    • Rory, hailing from pretty obscure puzzle game. Not helping that many old Halfbrick games, including Bears vs Art, were removed from the stores.
    • Raskull King may also qualify, although he recieved a sequel at the same time.
    • Scientist, being the only playable Mook so far. All other mooks are part of the cheering crowd and other characters movesets - scientist mook included (As a part of Flash's "Profit Bird" attack and a crowd). Not helping that Barry has already recieved "Fake Scientist" skin prior to his inclusion.

How well does it match the trope?
