* BossGame: Stages are generally short, with only a handful of enemies at a time in the spaces between one boss and the next. It currently holds the world record for "Most boss battles in a RunAndGun game", at 25: as ''Sega Power'' put it: "There are bosses and bosses and bosses. Even the bosses are bossed about by other bosses."

Added DiffLines:

* LowClearance: One of Wolfgunblood and Garopa's "attacks" involves the horse signalling to a warning ahead. Shortly after, it'll either jump or lower itself to avoid 2-4 high or low incoming walls, and if Epsilon doesn't move high or low to avoid he'll take collision damage from them.

The plot, [[ExcusePlot if it even matters]], concerns a criminal organization of genetically-engineered beings called "Scarlet" who terrorized the planet Sierra. Their members are able to live within humans, animals and machines via a parasitic ability. Epsilon-Eagle, the leader of Scarlet, was ambushed by a team of Sierrans with super powers, and [[TechnoBabble thrown into the space-time continuum]]. The new leader of Scarlet, Xi-Tiger, was [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating hated by his own men]] for being too [[BloodKnight ruthless]] compared to Epsilon, and as such he wanted to destroy Epsilon once and for all. Xi-Tiger attacked a Sierran research laboratory where he sensed Epsilon in the body of a boy. He took a random girl hostage so as to force Epsilon to come out. Epsilon, instead, [[ViralTransformation transformed from a boy into a cyborg birdman]]. However, Epsilon's [[HumansAreGood good human side]] [[HeroicWillpower began to overcome his evilness]] and made him want to [[DoomRepercussionsOfEvil fight the demons]]. This annoyed Xi-Tiger, who killed the girl before running away. The plot actually makes even less sense as it proceeds, with [[spoiler:the planet blowing up and Epsilon ending up fighting a giant mechanical lion called Z Leo without the player really having any idea who he is or why this is necessary.]]

* ShoutOut: The apocalyptic premise of a [[HeroicWillPower counter]]-[[DemonicPossession possessing]] hero with a [[StuffedIntoTheFridge tragic love interest]] battling a horde of in-fighting monsters is an homage to ''[[Manga/{{Devilman}} Devilman]]''. Now with a [[RecycledInSpace sci-fi backdrop]].

* {{Cameo}}: Melon Bread (referred to in this game as "Jampan") and Seven Force, both markedly different from their ''GunstarHeroes'' incarnations.

Of course, none of that actually matters. What does matter is lots of explosions, sick Genesis music, a badass and super powerful main character and lots and lots of bosses. Twenty of them to shoot, in fact.

** It was originally supposed to have seven forms (most likely excluding the human) according to the head developer, though; they were cut along with some other planned content in favor of releasing the game sooner.

* SequentialBoss: Seven Force, which only has six forms (including the human form she starts in). This is because the "Seven" is a reference to the Mode 7-style rotation effects the boss showcases, not the number of forms it has.
