* MinigameCredits: In Boktai 1, after the second playthrough, you get an item collecting mini-game during the credits roll. Boktai 2 features a mini-game during the credits where the player controls Nero as he chases Django in his [[spoiler: mouse form]] while avoiding [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal bats, bees, and bombs]].

Added DiffLines:

* SocializationBonus: The Azure Tower contain the strongest of each type of Gun Frame, but you can only get ones that you have the proper seal for, with there being seven total (for each of the elements in the game). With one cartridge you're only given the Dark seal in the NewGamePlus, the Sol seal after growing the Solar Tree (which takes a couple of hours in direct sunlight), and one random one (out of four) when you enter the tower for the first time. The rest you need to get by linking to someone else. What's worse, only the random one is transferable through this method - even if the other person has all seven, you'll only get one - and if it's the same type, well...

** The Schrödinger is a [[CoolShip Mobile Fighter]] operated by [[SchrodingersCat a cat terrenial whose power was split into two separate terrenials]]. Crosses the line between this and a StealthPun.

** There's an old amnesiac in Boktai 2 that is implied to be [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Snake]], himself. In Lunar Knights, one of the items you can find is the "Cool Bandana", which will automatically use a healing item should you die and was said to be once owned by a "legendary soldier".

* AlternateHistory: ''Lunar Knights'' refers to a Lord of Destruction being Dumas's predecessor, and Trinity is Aaron's father. Both of these were from the alternate timeline the latter came from in from ''[[NoExportForYou Boktai 3]]'' in which Django dies and Ratatosk manages to take over the world.
** It might be argued that ''Shinbok'' is actually the alternate timeline, since in getting kicked out of his world, Trinity accidentally broke the seal on Django's grave, which totally counts as interference.

* ChargedAttack: Different parts of the Gun del Sol allow it to execute this. In ''Lunar Knights'', upgrading the Knight frame enough unlocks this capability.

The final bosses of the second and third games are both horrifically powerful monstrosities called "Ancestor Pieces" who are truly immortal and require an immense amount of magic to seal into dormancy.



* EscortMission: Defeating the Immortal is not the end of it. Django then has to drag the coffin containing their body out of the dungeon to a position where he can set up the Piledriver to purify them. He suffers from reduced movement while dragging the coffin and needs to combat enemies on the way out. In the meantime, the Immortal may attempt to struggle and cause the coffin to pull away if not attended to. Fortunately, completion of the dungeon may open up a DoorToBefore to shorten the return trip, on top of special teleporters that can transport him with the coffin.



* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Ringo]] in Boktai 2. Depending on which ending you get, any combination of [[spoiler: Carmilla, Sabata, and/or Otenko]] in Boktai 3.

* HundredPercentCompletion: The player gains different titles for achieving different feats including filling out different sections of the Library, or S-ranking every ranked challenge. The Grand Master title goes to players who have accomplished everything.
** Rather infuriatingly, getting Grand Master in ''Lunar Knights'' needs completion of the soundtrack database, and the last three tracks require a standard DS system (due to lack of the Slot-2 in the 3DS) and the GBA Boktai games to unlock.
* IntercontinuityCrossover: [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork MegaMan.exe]] helps Django out in ''Boktai 2'' and ''Boktai 3''. There's crossovers in the ''Battle Network'' games too.

* KillSat: The Sunflower in ''Lunar Knights'' has all the aesthetics of one, but operates differently from the traditional trope. It channels sunlight used to purify the Immortals, but can't reach them on the ground due to the sunlight-blocking [=ParaSOL=] in the way; thus the protagonists have to fly the Immortals up to the Sunflower to purify them point-blank. [[spoiler:The Sunflower eventually gets employed in a more classic manner in the final battle with Polidori, creating an opening to allow the protagonists to destroy his true body.]]

* NonstandardGameOver: ''Boktai 2'' is pro at this. Fail to piledrive Django in time, bite Lita at night, join forces with the big bad or fail to draw enough sunlight when Jörmungandr swallows you. This last one could dub for NightmareFuel or FridgeHorror...

* PaletteSwap: You have your basic enemy [[PaletteSwap palette swaps]] for higher level and [[ElementalRockPaperScissors elemental]] variations like any basic [[RolePlayingGame RPG]]. However! In a more unusal twist, in ''Boktai 1'', Sabata appears as a palette swap of Django, despite that the official artwork shows the differences in their appearances.

Added DiffLines:

* SetBonus: Equipping all armor types from a particular set in ''Boktai 3'' will grant a unique bonus, either by extending the duration of either LimitBreak or by enabling the a ChargedAttack on the Mega Buster. One particular item set even reverses the debilitating effects that its individual components would bestow.

* NoExportForYou: The third game was never released outside of Japan. Furthermore, Lunar Knight's crossover with Megaman Star Force was also removed from the western releases of both games.

* ItemCrafting: The second game uses this to a degree. While it still calls upon the series' gimmick to get the job done, and you have to have a certain skill level to forge higher level weapons, and you need to be above certain levels to use half of the weapons, it is possible to get a very good weapon for fighting ThatOneBoss, [[spoiler: a spear that deals extra damage when paired with the flame element...]]

** A unique variant also surfaces with regards to consumables -- normally, letting certain consumables sit in your inventory for too long makes them go bad, turning them into a [[PoisonMushroom much weaker variant that also causes poison]]. However, allowing consumables to expire under certain conditions instead ''upgrades'' them into something more potent that also doesn't spoil. For instance, leaving meat in high heat and low humidity transforms it into jerky, and allowing milk to spoil in medium temperatures and humidity transforms it into yoghurt.

* {{Lunacy}}: When the ingame calender detects a full moon, the player can press A at night to cause Lunar Bugs to appear. These bugs can be absorbed to heal the player. In a more extreme example, the BigBad of the first game, Hel, can use the power of the Moon to turn the entire planet Undead, after the necessary energy sacrifices are in order.
* MagikarpPower: The second game's use of bare hands. Understandably they start out pathetically weak, but they grow in power each time the fist "weapon" skill and the Strength stat increases, until eventually Django can punch out the FinalBoss EldritchAbomination with relative ease. No wonder Lita likes being a BareFistedMonk...[[note]]In fact, Lita's the one who gives you a sidequest to clear out enemies with your bare hands, just to show you that it's possible.[[/note]]

* UnexpectedShmupLevel: a rather unfortunate design decision was made in ''Lunar Knights'' to cap off every boss fight with a ten minute long unskippable really freakin' hard space shooter level. Making the shooter levels even harder is that the DS stylus is used to move your ship and to fire your guns, so you can only do one or the other at any given time.
