Wave for the camera!

Throughout MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, there are numerous AI characters that can be seen. While few characters are specific to a certain vehicle class, most other characters tend to be present within all classes.

To toggle the names of the AI characters, simply tap the left analogue stick twice in a race to either identify driver names and positions, or to remove the icons from view.

  • "Mr SUV" is the online pseudonym of game director Matt Southern. [1]
  • "Doc Hock" could possibly be a play on Doc Holiday.
  • Each AI character drives only one specific vehicle & livery per class, meaning that it is their personal vehicle & livery.
  • AI can use Speed weekend vinyls once downloaded; unfortunately they cannot use DLC vehicles/characters or any vinyls from the signature livery packs.
  • Each vehicle class has only 5 class-exclusive AI.
    • The class-exclusive AI also tend to be unique to the other AI characters. For example: General Zegg is the unique character who appears as a chunky male driver covered in an orange jumpsuit with shades, and Lucy Xian is the female driver with white hair and a red jumpsuit.
    • Furthermore, it tends to be the class-exclusive AI who have a personalised livery, eg. their initials or name on the numberplate.
  • Stitch has his own name on the spoiler of his Beelzebuggy Spaceframe II.
  • Gaurav Bhatt has his own name on the front bumper of his Lunar-Tec Yeti.
  • Mike Devine has his initials on the back of his Mirage Bastille.
  • Cap Boardman has his first name written on the side of his Atlas Pacifier, as well as on the numberplate.
  • Blondie has "BLONDE" written on the numberplate of her Castro Toro.
  • A lot of the same characters drive the same type of vehicles in each class. They are as follows:
  • Every playable driver represents an AI Character, meaning you are effectively playing as that character when you select them. This also means that whichever driver you select, this AI Character will not appear in your game because you are playing as them.
    • The same goes for the vehicles an AI uses (eg. Hannibal Rush's Beelzebuggy Spaceframe II is in the first Kanaloa Bay festival race, but if you select his livery then he will be replaced with a different buggy).
