* FixedForwardFacingWeapon: In most cases, the player's ship is only able to fire their main weaponry in the direction they are facing in. Supplemental weapons that avert this trope can thus come in handy against mooks that fill the screen.

The term ''shmup'' is an abbreviation of "shoot 'em up", but is typically used by the fans who coined it to refer specifically to fixed-scrolling shooters that are not three-dimensional. For instance, ''[[VideoGame/NineteenFortyTwo 1943]]'' would fit this description, whereas ''VideoGame/GeometryWars'' would not (it is free-scrolling according to player movement), and neither would ''AfterBurner'' (it scrolls into/out of the screen in 3D). This kind of restrictive use is, however, debated among shoot 'em up fans
