* BadExportForYou: The North American [=PS1=] port of ''[=RayStorm=]'' prohibits you from ever seeing easier versions of stages 5 through 8, due to those stages being cut out if any stage's difficulty is lower than the default. Just to rub salt in the wound, this version's default difficulty was also raised two levels above its Japanese counterpart, meaning you cannot play on Japanese defaults without beeing locked out of the second half of the game. You can blame Creator/WorkingDesigns for this; they did this intentionally in an attempt to curb "oh, I creditfed to the end, that's it, I'm never playing this again" mentality.

* NoExportForYou: The PC ports of ''[=RayStorm=]'' and ''[=RayCrisis=]'' were released in Japan and Europe, but never to North America. Suffice to say they can run on Windows computers without having to change the regional Unicode settings of your PC, thus making them import-friendly... [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes if you can find copies of these games in these times]] (especially ''[=RayCrisis=]'').

** ''[=RayForce=]'' (JP and NA, arcade and iOS), also known as ''Gunlock'' (EU, arcade), ''Layer Section'' (JP, Saturn; NA, Windows 95), and ''Galactic Attack'' (NA, Saturn).
** ''[=RayStorm=]''[='=]s Japan-region [=PlayStation=] and Saturn ports are called ''Layer Section II'', but the original name is kept in all other versions.
** ''[=RayCrisis=]'' is the OddNameOut as it is the only game in the series that wasn't officially named ''Layer Section'' in Japan.
