!! battle-girl's Tropes:

* AllLowercaseLetters: The title is always written this way, as is the character's name.
* AncientOrderOfProtectors: For millennia prior to the game, priests have guarded the hibernating battle-girl.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: If Terminus manages to reprogram four function pods, he'll enter the program to fight you directly. Kicking him out requires shooting him five times in the face.
* CosmicKeystone: The Great Machine, "source of cosmic order and enforcer of natural law," which sits at the center of the universe.
* CyberPunkIsTechno: Your struggles inside the Machine are set to a sampling of classic {{MOD}} beats.
* EnemyDetectingRadar: Arrows point to pods under attack, while less prominent indicators point to programmers lurking offscreen.
* EveryTenThousandPoints: ExtraLives are bestowed at 50,000, 150,000, 300,000, 600,000, 1,000,000, 1,500,000, and every million points thereafter.
* FieryRedhead: battle-girl.
* ForeignLookingFont: The title lettering looks like English filtered through Japanese.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Terminus wants to [[OrderVersusChaos replace order with chaos]]. That's all there is to him.
* IdleAnimation: battle-girl taps her foot on the level select screen.
* InspirationForTheWork: The authors credit ''[[VideoGame/{{Tempest}} Tempest 2000]]'' on the AtariJaguar as a major influence.
* LifeMeter: It starts out red at 100%, and shades toward yellow as you lose health.
* MercyInvincibility
* PersonalityBloodTypes: battle-girl's is B, unsurprisingly.
* PowerUp: Weapons, energy orbs, and [[PhlebotinumPills "power capsules"]].
* {{Vaporware}}: A sequel called ''hyper-girl'' was announced but never completed.
