* 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

* ScoringPoints: A staple of the genre. Older games typically just amount to "kill enemies and collect point items", but newer games generally have more complex scoring systems, sometimes requiring [[SomeDexterityRequired dexterity]] or [[GuideDangIt a guide to figure out]].

Older games typically just amount to "kill enemies and collect point items", but newer games generally have more complex scoring systems, sometimes requiring [[SomeDexterityRequired dexterity]] or [[GuideDangIt a guide to figure out]]. Many games offer [[EveryTenThousandPoints extra lives at certain point thresholds]] to encourage players to care about score to some extent. [[ContinuingIsPainful Continuing often resets the player's score to 0.]]
