* NintendoHard: The genre is well known for its relentless challenge, especially since it has its roots in arcade games, where difficulty is necessary to allow players to eventually put in more coins or hand the machine over to the next player and their money, generating profit for the arcade. Modern BulletHell games, particularly their {{True Final Boss}}es, contribute to the genre's "oh my god this crap is bloody impossible" image.

->''"Sometime in the future, Earth will be menaced by hordes of alien spacecraft that fly in [[ArtificialStupidity predictable patterns]] and can be killed in {{one hit|PointWonder}}. The logical course of action will be to dispatch [[OneManArmy one brave hero]] in an [[SuperPrototype untested plane/tank/spaceship]] to take them all on [[ItsUpToYou without help]]."''

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, ''[[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.
