In Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (the first one, for the PlayStation), is there a way I can check the special moves for the skaters in-game, or do I have to guess them myself? I know I can just search online, but I want to know whether there's a way to do it in-game.

Not in-game no. The very first game was pretty barebones compared to what it is today. There's no move listing, gap listing, trick editing... nothing. You had to find out what the tricks were yourself (per skater) or refer to a guide.

As mentioned by Jeff Mercado, there unfortunately isn't any way to check your special tricks in game. For reference, here is a complete list of special tricks for THPS1 on the PS1.

Adapted from Slateman's FAQ/Move List


Interestingly, while you can't look up any of the tricks in-game, there was an incomplete list of special tricks in the game's instruction manual.

Once you beat the game under career, that specific character will have access to the Special Moves List. To learn for each character you’d have to beat Career mode with all characters and some point unlock new ones.

  • The OP is wondering how to check the special moves, not how to get them.

  • @Joachim That's what this answer is saying, no? It's saying you unlock a list of special moves you can check after beating career mode. May 14, 2020 at 13:37
  • No. It's indeed saying how you can unlock them, but not how to see how one can perform them.
