!! Tropes associated with XSEED
* {{Fanservice}}: Several, but the VideoGame/SenranKagura franchise is their biggest example, [[SexSells something that they are very well-aware of]].
** Subverted, as [[http://www.siliconera.com/2014/07/04/fanservice-games-apart-senran-kagura-says-xseed/ they plan to no longer release any more fanservice games]] that aren't related to ''Senran Kagura''. It's because that series is Marvelous' most successful one, and also because they can see its potential beyond its famous fanservice.
* FriendlyRival: With Aksys Games.
* KindheartedCatLover: They occasionally post pictures of their cats on their Twitter.
