Through the use of the level editor, users often make the same type of level over and over again. The majority of these levels are usually made by either inexperienced or immature users, but are mainly made as they are good way of gathering plays and ratings, and are easy to make. These levels include:
0 - 9
- (# above 1 such as "3") in 1: These levels consist of short "levels" where each "level" is a type of frequent level.
- 8 ball pool: These consist of Pogostick Man immediately being stuck to spikes. You must lean right to aim your pogostick on the ball, hold space to charge it, and then release it so you hit a cue ball that will hit the 8 ball, which then falls into the hole, making you will win the level.
- 99% Impossible: A popular level where the level is usually very hard to win (hence the name 99% Impossible), however, these levels can be pretty easy.
- Accidental Killer: A variation of a Don't Move level in which you knock NPCs into hazards, "accidentally" killing them.
- Angry Birds: Levels that are based off of the game of the same name. The game is based off of throwing birds (some with special abilities) at green pigs that steal the birds' eggs. The green pigs build fortresses to defend themselves from the birds, and the story carries on from that point onwards. Usually, these levels consist of either:
- Throwing birds at the green pigs' fortress.
- Control a bird getting launched to destroy the fortress with pigs inside of it.
- Survive an attack of flying birds.
- Being launched from a cannon (or a boost) and crushing objects (only if you are Lawnmower Man or if the object density is 0.1).
- Animation: Levels that show off animations made by the creator. Usually the character falls down a long hole, with the animation (a stack of shapes, each one looking different) on the left side or the right side. The character falling down gives the illusion of the shapes moving.
- Arrow run/Harpoon run: These levels are extremely frequent; the player has to outrun a series of arrow guns/harpoon guns, and get to the finish line alive. These levels usually start off with just a few harpoon guns or arrow guns at the start, while the numbers of these weapons gradually increase until there are normally loads of them at the end, making the level almost impossible. These are often in the shape of stairs going downward and occasionally have a grading list telling how better you are going,
- Art levels: These levels are made for users to showcase art made within the game. A lot of these levels are mostly made out of flat ground with very few obstacles.
- Balcony Fall: Levels in which you start on top of a building, and then fall and cause terror on people's balconies. May or may not have a method of finishing. One of these is featured.
- Ball Fall: Levels involving Pogostick Man, few or more sets of boxes make with collision 2 shapes. Each box is filled with soccer balls. The amount of balls add up after each box has been passed. Your goal is to quickly avoid the soccer balls and get to the finish line.
- Basketball/Soccer Levels: There are three different types, and often involve Segway Guy as a forced character since he is easily stuck in place by little shapes.
- Blade Weapon Throw: Often known as "sword throw" or "knife throw". They involve the player (Segway Guy is often used) throwing blades (machetes, axes, etc.) at food items or NPCs on platforms, with the player usually winning after getting them all. Many will have a message that says "Rate 5 if you got them all!" or "Rate 5 if you got a body part over here!".
- BMX/Stunt Park: These levels showcase a BMX or stunt park made by the user. Irresponsible Dad, since he rides a bike, is normally the forced character. Usually, there are ramps, loops and grind rails. One of these made by Siaba is featured, and formerly the most played level of all time.
- Bottle Fall: These levels involve bottles (or other objects) falling on you, which you must survive.
- Bottle Run: These levels involve boosts speeding you up so you can get across the bridge of bottles that will start collapsing after you touch a bottle. Irresponsible Dad is usually forced.

- Chomper Pit: A level where a character falls into a pit of chompers. These levels are usually rated poorly.
- Cinema/Movie: These levels usually feature either an image on a television on a level in which you go to a movie theatre.
- Competition: These levels are simply competitions where you must get the fastest replay to be featured in the creator's next level. Some of these levels are a fraud, which means that the creator only said it to be a competition so the level can get popularity.
- Demo Levels: These demo levels are made to show the first part of a level while it's still being made. However, these levels are usually made as a way of getting a lot more views, as the end of each demo level will most likely tell you to "Rate 5 for the full version".
- Don't Move: These levels often don't work, as it depends on the type of computer you have. These levels normally use movement items such as fans, wrecking balls and spring platforms that move you all the way to the end automatically.
- Drawn Levels: These levels are usually another type of level on this list, such as a rope swing, with a visual effect to make it look like the level was drawn on a piece of paper. Many have a notebook paper background.
- Dunk: A type of basketball level that has you eject, soar through the air, grab a ball, and dunk it. 'Ghetto dunk', a featured level, is based off of this level type. Segway Guy is often forced, although Irresponsible Dad may be substituted.
- Destroy City: These levels are rarely seen due to it's popularity level drop. These involve playing as any character or forced. You play as a "giant" who destroys a city (mainly made up of small 5X5 or bigger shapes that are used to create a tiny neighborhood or city).
- Escape!: There are 2 types of these levels:
- Face Makers: These levels give you choices of what eyes, ears, nose, or any other face parts to create a custom face.

- For [YouTuber]: These levels are made specifically for Happy Wheels players, who have created many "Happy Wheels" videos on YouTube. Many users believe that if their levels get high plays, they will use them in one of their videos, so these levels are quite frequent. Many of these levels are nearly impossible, using all kinds of hazards and traps.
- Free Fall: The player, usually Segway Guy, ejects from his vehicle and tries to fall all the way down the level while trying to stay alive. The fall usually consists of circle and triangle shapes so that the player might possibly die when colliding with a shape fast enough. It is based off of an old Flash game that utilises the same mechanics.
- Free Porn!: These levels depict characters or drawn up models having sex, the latter is against the Level Rules. Some of these levels will have you instantly die at the start, with text naming you a pervert. Unfortunately, that does not violate rules.
- Freeze Wall: These involve you bursting through a wall, while the broken pieces of the wall will then freeze in place and become fixed after a set time. This is meant to make the player have trouble getting through the pieces of the wall that have become frozen in place.

- Glass Break: Levels in which the main goal is to break a series of glass panels and sometimes other glass material. The difficulty rises after each level of glass. The panels can either be placed horizontally or vertically, and may have glass and bottles spin using pin joints.
- "Glitch": Hoax levels, which often direct the user to "Rate 5 stars, and restart", claiming that the whole level will have changed, e.g. the whole level will be made of glass.
- Gravity Test: These levels involve the use of boost panels. It starts off with a one-panel boost facing down. When you go through it, the boost attempts to push you down to the ground. As you go though each set of boost, the level gets harder, with more boosts stacked up on top of each other (resulting in the boost sound playing loudly), pushing your character down with more force until they are crushed.
- Grenade Throw: Levels that have you throw a landmine or a homing mine on NPCs. These levels will often tell you to rate 5 if you got everyone.
- Grind Up People: These levels involve Helicopter Man and many NPCs falling on top of his autogyro. The NPCs will instantly die from being cut up from the blades of the propellers. They are popular due to the high amounts of gore in them.

- Harpoon Catch: You are launched upwards while a harpoon tries to shoot you. You need to try and catch the harpoon, and land it in the "win zone".
- Harpoon Stretch: Lawnmower Man is normally the forced character. You are shot with a harpoon with an anchor as soon as the level starts. The aim is to see how far you can get with the harpoon through your body.
- "HD": These levels are usually highly detailed, but barely difficult. Some of these are misleading, and they only include "HD" as a way to attract players.
- Heart Donation: Levels, which are like Instant Death levels, kill you at the very beginning and send your heart (which is what the 'camera' follows on your character) on a journey to the finish line. Usually at the end of these levels there is a hospital, with a Wheelchair Guy NPC on a hospital bed, and a nurse/doctor telling you to "pay 5 stars" for the bill.
- Heli Jet Climb: These levels involve Helicopter Man, and are just like Jet Fall levels, but you fly up instead of falling down, while you try not to get pushed down by the jets. At the top there is usually two directions, one leading to a finish, and one leading to a bonus level. At the bottom there are either spikes or blade wepons.
- Helmet: Levels where various objects fall on your helmet and you survive, when really your head is protected by a super-thin white or transparent rectangle.
- HEY JIM!: Levels telling the creator of Happy Wheels (Jim Bonacci) what to add in the game. These levels mostly have long lists of hazards, miscellaneous and character ideas. As with more "people" levels, these often tell you to "rate 5 so Jim can see".
- Homing mine survival: In this type of level, you usually play as Segway Guy, locked in tiny circles, and must bat away a homing mine before it explodes.
- Illusions: Levels that have optical illusions in them. If you're sensitive to certain illusions, it's recommended to stay away from these.
- Instant Death: A level where you get killed as soon as the level starts. These are often made by new users as either a 'test level', a 'look-at-what-I-made' level, or a "100% impossible" level.
- iP(od)(hone)(ad): Before Happy wheels was announced for mobile devices, these levels involved you playing the level as if though it's being played through a mobile device. At the end, it usually asks Jim to make Happy Wheels for iPod/iPhone/iPad and, in rare cases, Android.
- Jet Fall: A level in which you try and fall between multiple jets that will push you up, if you get hit by one, you will usually land into spikes. As the player progresses, there will be more jets, and they will typically get larger and more powerful.
- Jet Wall: Like jet falls, except you are going horizontally instead of vertically.
- Job Levels: These levels are just like the Throw Yourself levels, where you are spinning on a wheel, and when you eject, you fly across the level, and land in an area that tells you how far you went, but uses job names instead, such as "McDonalds Toilet Cleaner" for "Bad" and "President" for "Epic".
- Kill: Most of these are often marketed as "Kill Justin Bieber", "Kill Your Boss", "Kill your wife" and "Kill (YouTuber)".
- Lawnmower Launch: There are size 5 circles around your front wheel, and you just hold up or down: up to spin counter-clockwise, and down to spin clockwise. Most of the time, you will go into "hoops" when you press Z, and get rated accordingly. Also, the front wheel separates, and a black rope protrudes out. Sometimes the force of the spinning breaks your arms, and under a higher speed, it can break you in half. Under the highest of circumstances, it can make your whole body explode.
- Leetball: These levels consist of a ball of which collides with everything, and thin rectangles that collide with everything except the character. The character has to eject, grab onto the ball, and roll through a bunch of obstacles to the finish. These levels are sometimes also called ziplining.
- Life of: These levels involve a character's so called 'life', beginning when they were born to where they are now: riding a segway, or riding bikes with their children, or when they die. Most of these levels will involve NPCs having sex to show how you (the character) were born.
- Matrix: Usually involves you not moving, while dodging a bullet in slow-motion, and having it hit someone else behind you. This type of level is based off of the very popular movie, The Matrix.
- Meat Factory: These levels consist of you ejecting your character from their vehicle to join a group of NPCs through a series of gears and hazards that grind the characters into tiny bits, which then end up looking like ground meat. Many also include things like "Rate 5 if the meat goes past this line".
- Minecraft: Levels which mimic content from the game of the same name. Most of these levels include blocks from the game (most of which are dirt blocks), and, in some cases, mobs from the game (the Creeper is the most popular one that is made). Sometimes, however, the character will ride a minecart from the game through a level.
- Minecraft Server/Codes: Users asking people to join their Minecraft server, or promoting fake Minecraft codes which end up being a virus.

- Mow the Lawn: These levels are designed solely for Lawnmower Man. They involve you sucking NPCs into your mower.
- Multiplayer: A level made mostly by beginners who do not know well about the site breaking down sometimes. This level has a user demanding for a multiplayer system.
- My Machine: These levels detail a (sometimes) complicated machine. A series of mechanisms will activate a hazard that will usually decapitate an NPC at the end. Some of these require having to think about what to do.
- Neon Level: A very frequent level type that usually involve a black background and shapes with a black shape color with a vivid outline color, such as red, yellow, or blue, that give the illusion that it is neon. It can be said that these levels parody off of Tron, due to the movie's vibrant neon colors.
- New Character: Much like the fake glitch levels, these levels will put you in a box telling you to rate 5, and then save your replay using a certain 'code', which will 'unlock hidden characters', as users believe the blank boxes in the character selection screen are 'locked' characters. These levels sprung from when Pogostick Man was accidentally placed in the character filter.
- NEW Glitch: While many of these are fake and ask you to "rate 5 and restart", some show real glitches within the game. A known glitch is named the "Black Hole Glitch", which teleports you to the top left of the level/map.
- New Level Idea: A "new" potential frequent level. These levels do not become popular most of the time.
- No Toilet Paper: A meat cleaver is stuck on the player's posterior (making it look like they have "something" hanging out, and so the character repeats various screams), so they must crawl their way to the finish with the cleaver stuck in him/her. The level usually ends with a toilet paper roll.
- One Harpoon Gun/Arrow Gun/Jet: These levels claim there is only one of an object, but when the player comes into contact, there are really multiple objects stacked on top of another, making it look like one object is sitting there. When you go near it, either lots of harpoons will fire, lots of jets will fire, or lots of arrow guns will shoot you and may kill you instantly, even destroying your character's body.
- Only for Pros: A variation of the 99% Impossible levels, which claim only "pros" can complete it. They usually feature a lot of hazards that you must get through.
- Paddlepault: These are levels in which you try and traverse through a level full of paddle platforms. The name was inspired by taking "Paddle" and combining it with the end of the word "catapult", since paddle platforms act somewhat like catapults.
- Pogostick Challenge: There are 2 types of these levels:
- A type of level in which Pogostick Man jumps over a bunch of blocks. The blocks get higher as you keep moving along.
- A type of level that involve you jumping high, between two rectangles or above one onto a finish line. Most of the time, harpoon guns, arrow guns, and landmines are added for extra challenge.

- Race: Levels which include racing with other characters through a course.
- Ragdoll: A different form of a rope swing. which consists of ropes and conveyor belts which are your job to maneuver through. Some of these levels are featured.
- Rate 5: It is extremely popular for levels on Happy Wheels to tell you to Rate 5, and will often do so at the end of their level, or just have a level where they want you to rate 5. Many levels will say things such as: "Rate 5 if you survived" and 'Rate 5 if you killed him". Asking for a 5 star rating is also against Level Rules. With the 1.64 version of Happy Wheels, Jim added a text detector, so typing "Rate [number]" text in your level and then testing it will trigger a notifications saying "There appears to be text in your level that abuses the rating system. Stop doing that. Misguided people apparently follow your instructions, and it's ruining Happy Wheels. I've been letting it slide, but including it in your level will now get it permanently deleted once noticed".
- R.I.P Happy Wheels: Users who have been a member of the community for a long time show what has happened to Happy Wheels over time, and want the game to change. A level like this, Happy Wheel Future, is featured.
- Rocket: Levels that allow the player to ride a rocket. Most are controlled by using the arrow keys.
- Rolling Box/Circle/"Killing Machine": Levels, in which were mostly made after the update to hide your vehicle, consists of a character without their vehicle, trapped in a high density box "vehicle" with 10 leaning strength, in which the player grabs it and controls it with the left and right arrow keys to usually crush vans, characters, and other destructible items. The alternative before the hide vehicle option was a bunch of small circles around Irresponsible Dad and a Rectangle shell to form a Circle on the outside, grouped to trap Irresponsible Dad in the circles, and to use the left and right Arrow keys to move, without grabbing the actual circle. This is due to Irresponsible Dad's high leaning strength.
- Rope Swings: A level where a bunch of rectangles are overlapping by pin joints, making ropes where the character will swing on them. They can contain other obstacles, such as conveyer belts and spinning circles. Three rope swing levels have been featured, with one that was made by Jim Bonacci.

- Run: Levels in which there is ground, then a bridge of sleeping objects, which get progressively difficult. The objects are often food Items and bottles. In these levels, you must move as fast possible so you will not fall with the sleeping objects.
- Saw: Levels attempting to be based on the Saw movie series, however, they usually just require you to push a button to see an NPC be killed. These levels have become recently uncommon due to a statement by Jim Bonacci asking users to stop making Saw themed levels.
- Sex: Levels that involve 2 or more NPCs having sex or humping each other. Similar to the Free Porn! levels, but with NPCs. Jim said he doesn't mind sex levels with NPCs, as long as there aren't levels with poorly drawn porn using the poly tool.

Jim also stated that "The level browser shouldn't be used as some retarded message board", and that all signing levels will now be deleted.
- Skill Test: This level is like an obstacle course. Usually, there are lots of hazards and obstacles you must evade in order to complete the level.
- Skill Test (Basketball): A type of basketball level. You must throw the ball as far as you can into the designated sections. These mostly have numbers under the object which tells you how many points you get, with prizes falling sometimes. These levels may sometimes have skill rankings, which usually vary from Justin Bieber to Chuck Norris, or a popular YouTuber who plays Happy Wheels.

You fall or ride down some long lasting stairs, and will have to try and survive to be able to win. Sometimes there's a rating list at the start telling you if you're getting better (such as calling you a noob, and if you pass that, the insults then turn into complements).
- STOP FAKE GLITCHES: These levels normally have text complaining to people who make fake glitch levels to stop. Most of the time, the character is put into a small box with an example of a fake glitch, with a hypocritical "rate 5 if you hate fake glitch levels" message.
- Story: Levels contain the story about a character or other stuff, the names can be "(name) Story" or "Story of (name)", the story can be about how the character lived, how the character died, how the character was added in Happy Wheels, etc... Some may be based on characters that the popular YouTubers with Happy Wheels videos call them. They are very similar to "Life of" levels.
- Suicide: These maps are much like the Mow the Lawn maps, except through a complicated system of trails and boosts, where you end up mowing your own character. More than one character can be applied to these maps.
- Surf: The level contains a lot of tall triangles connected to pin joints that will fall on each other like dominos when one is pushed onto another. The player is required to "surf" on the triangles as they fall on each other. Some of these levels are combined with Neon Levels.
