MotorStorm Wiki

The Voodoo Mastadon Monster Truck.

Monster Trucks are custom built behemoths jacked up on fat wheels, with a serious appetite for destruction. They're not as agile or quick to stop as other vehicle classes, but they'll crush anything that gets into their path.

- Festival Card #117

Debuting with the release of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, the massive Monster Trucks are only rivalled by the Big Rigs, and will destroy anything in their path and opponents who are unlucky enough to be caught under their enormous wheels.

Just like Big Rigs, this new class of vehicles can easily plow through deep terrain that would otherwise hold down most other classes. However, Monster Trucks are rather understeer-heavy, very easily toppled over, and tend to bounce when landing large jumps.

Pacific Rift




  • In MotorStorm: Apocalypse, the Monster Trucks' engines have recycled Big Rig engine sounds.
  • Monster Trucks are not featured in MotorStorm: Arctic Edge; however, their role is arguably replaced by Snow Cats.
    • MotorStorm RC's description of Monster Trucks hint that they would function well in the arctic, for the fairly obvious reason of their massive, treaded tires.
  • Though Monster Trucks are capable of running over smaller vehicles, it is best avoided since even running over an ATV can lead to a problematic imbalance.
  • Monster Trucks are the only class to date, which can recover from flipping over. When any other class rolls over it usually results in: the driver falling off, the vehicle wrecking, or the vehicle being unable to get back on its wheels. However, the monster truck's roof never caves in and its over-sized wheels allow it to flip itself back up onto its wheels.
  • The exhaust note that the Monster Trucks produce in Pacific Rift heavily resembles that of an alcohol fueled carbureted V8 engine


The name says it all. However, most Monster Trucks are either regular vehicle bodies on a giant suspension or carbon fiber body panels on a pipe frame. But no matter what kind it is, all Monster Trucks have giant wheels.
