"What are you waiting for? Jump in your plane and get freaky!"—The Narrator
Freaky Flyers is a 2003 plane based combat/racer game released by Midway for the Xbox, Playstation 2 and Gamecube. Adventure mode sets you in a wacky cartoonish world where 14 colorful characters compete in races across wild and exotic locations.
Each character has his/her own story that progresses throughout the competition, told with a combination of pre-rendered cutscenes and still images with narration.
Freaky Flyers contains examples of the following:
- Art Shift: Sometimes cutscenes are presented as still drawings, almost slideshow style (Marcel Moreso's pre-Bandito Attack cutscene).
- Casanova Wannabe: Johnny
- Chasing Your Tail: The final boss floats backwards around a ringed planet throwing obsticals at you. Not suprising considering the game mechanics.
- Double In-Law Marriage: Myrna, Margaret, and the twins, if you consider Myrna and Margaret "sisters".
- Full Name Ultimatum: Sven "Mitchel" 209.
- Everything Is Better With Monkeys : With jetpacks too!
- Game Levels
- Germanic Efficiency / All Germans Are Nazis: Traci and her german narrator go into fits of shouting whenever they talk about the GLORY OF THE FATHERLAND!
- Also Traci was created by Opperation Female Bombshell.
- Gross Up Close-Up: Andre Latoilette, much to Johnny's horror.
- Hot Librarian: Myrna Bookbottom.
- Humongous Mecha: End Boss.
- Insult Backfire
Narrator: [She's a] GENETIC MUTANT FREAK!
Johnny: Really?... I think that's kind of HOT!
- Lemony Narrator: do you enjoy long walks on the beach and quiet time with voice-over guys?
- Mad Libs Dialogue: All of the "Spinning Paper" cutscenes that mention Danger Island have this monotone dub over said island's name, with no other explanation. Mysterious.
- Master of Disguise: Pilot X reveals himself to every character for the final battle, even the one where he starts out as himself.
- The Speechless / The Voiceless: The Marcel Moreso Bros were born mimes and SVEN-209 is a robot, so it's unknown if they can't or won't talk.
- Split Personality: Myrna Bookbottom is a polite librarian, being ridiculously proper and restrained with no outlet has caused her to develop an alter ego in the persona of Margaret Basher, a rude and outright violent woman.
- Spinning Paper: The intro and some of the cutscenes.
- The lumberjack carved his plane out of wood.
- The german girl flys a red barron-esq
- The mafia don flys a plane that looks like a luxury mobster car.
- The biker gang leader rides a bike shaped plane with ape hangers.
- The billionaire oil sheik has a carpet with an engine on the back (somehow).
- Wacky Racing
