** "TFOS Does Winterfest" introduced an idea they called "Out of Control Power" where some external stimulus switches on one of the player's abilities, and one of the examples was [[Manga/Ranma1/2 being hit with cold water]]. Maybe a coincidence, but considering whose work inspired this game in the first place...

* SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism - The various alien races are given a rough sorting based on how closely they resemble a human form. Near Humans are perfect examples of HumanAliens and the GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe. Not Very Near Humans are defined by having a roughly humanoid form and nature: RubberForeheadAliens, {{Intelligent Gerbil}}s, PettingZooPeople, LittleGreenMen and TheGreys. Real Weirdies are anything else; StarfishAliens are most common examples, with InsectoidAliens also possible, but theoretically a Real Weirdy could also be an EldritchAbomination or even from a race of EnergyBeings.

** This was a fan-made expansion that gave some more "bizarro" powers to humans, to all [=GMs=] to add elements of series like old Mecha animes, {{Ranma One Half}} and {{Project A-Ko}} to their campaigns. These included powers like Girl/Guy/Girl Trigger (contact with a specific stimulus caused the character to be affected as though hit by a Boy/Girl Gun, a {{Genderbender}} {{Transformation Ray}}), Own a Big Mecha (the character has a piloted robot or super battlesuit made by one of their relatives- which meant they'd get ticked if it got damage) and a human version of the [[OneWingedAngel Monster Out]] power.

The game was based on comedy anime (particularly ''Manga/UruseiYatsura''), but was originally released in the '80s when anime was still mostly an underground sensation. So, it was written as a general comedic sci-fi RPG. After you could watch ''Anime/SailorMoon'' and ''Anime/DragonBall'' without having to buy them from bootleggers, the anime basis became the game's main selling point.
