* AmbidextrousSprite: Nicely averted with Django and Sabata as they hold their respective guns with both hands. Played straight with Lucian, whose eyepatch will flip and can magically switch which hand is holding his weapon.

** In multiple times throughout the series, you have to use regular old mooks as blocks.



** Your lenses level up instead. Although being nice, this introduces problems when it comes to the Star and Luna lenses.



** Lunacy: An interesting variation; in these games, the power of the moon is ''reflective'', and allows Lunar Children to use the other elements. [[spoiler: This is how Sabata can use the Dark element, though it still involved some heavy and unpleasant interference from his aunt]].

[[spoiler: This is how Sabata can use the Dark element, though it still involved some heavy and unpleasant interference from his aunt]]. The Piledriver is said to use this power too in order to reflect ThePowerOfTheSun onto immortals, you can even see its symbol etched onto the mirrors when it's on its upright position.



* EleventhHourSuperpower: Wild Bunch, a team attack between Django and Sabata.

* EleventhHourSuperpower: Wild Bunch, a team attack between Django and Sabata. Never appears after the first game.



* HandWave: One that [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality probably didn't need explaining]]. Before Django tackles his first Undead Dungeon, Otenko tells him that due to flaws in space-time, puzzles will be reset and enemies will respawn whenever they return to a completed dungeon.

The sliding block puzzles are simply reset when you leave the room.



** ...But money is practically infinite with the sun and all. Guess people don't like waiting.



* MarshmallowHell: This happens to Django twice in the third game. Unfortunately for him, one of those times involves a girl who is a bit...flat...in addition to being the CuteBruiser. Poor Django ends up within an inch of his life.

Poor Django ends up within an inch of his life. (You only have ''ONE'' hit point after the interaction regardless of your health before.)



** The [[NoExportForYou Japan only sequel]] has a similar deal, except its cosmic horror, Vanargand, was sealed on the frickin' MOON.

**There's even a freaking element ''named'' Luna that's the combo of Dark and Sol.

* SunnySunflowerDisposition: The sun spirit Otenko. Diddo with Toasty from Lunar Knights.



* WithThisHerring: In all his adventures, Django is forced to start off his quest to stop forces capable of rendering the Earth itself undead with the clothes on his back and a banged-up solar weapon that has just enough energy to kill a handful of {{Mooks}} without a recharge.

* CapcomVsWhatever: Beginning with ''Boktai 2'' and ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork 5'', Capcom and Konami began cross-promoting both series by including hidden features that require players to exchange data from ''Boktai 2'' into ''Battle Network 5'' and vice-versa. However, ''Boktai 3'' was [[NoExportForYou never released outside Japan]] due to the low sales of the first two installments and all connectivity with the game was removed for the overseas versions of ''Battle Network 6''. Likewise, Konami choose not to keep the ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' connectivity with ''Lunar Knights'', the overseas version of ''Boktai DS''.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: A scale puzzle in the third game is flooded with wisp-like Klorofolun enemies in one instance. [[spoiler:You are supposed to leave the scales empty, and the guardians who subject you to that puzzle point out that "you can't put a weight on a soul" before stating that despite being Hel's undead, they have no love for Ratatosk and his ilk.]]

* OmnicidalManiac: Polidori in ''Lunar Knights''. Look at it this way: he's just one of a ''race'' of these guys.

to:

* OmnicidalManiac: Polidori in ''Lunar Knights''. Look The Immortals, or the major portion of the race at it least, are a case of playing with this way: he's just one trope. The Immortals are trying to actually ''preserve'' as much of a ''race'' existence as they can from the threat of death and decay by using the power of darkness; they call this the will of the Galaxy-Universe. Anything that refuses to convert to their race and cause is deemed a threat and they respond to these guys.threats by completely annihilating them with ancient {{Eldritch Abomination}}s called the Ancestor Pieces. In short, if they can't "save" some part of the universe, they'll wipe it out and move on to the next.

* BookEnds: [[spoiler:The Count, who was merely a {{starter villain}} in the first ''Boktai'', returns as the final boss in ''Boktai 3''.]]



* GangplankGalleon: Pirate Island in ''Boktai 3'' is a dungeon where a majority of it takes place on a ship docked there. The boss of that dungeon, Nidhoggr, appears to stop Django from using the ship to get to the moon, and the first phase of the ensuing boss fight utilizes the ship's armaments to take down the Nidhoggr machine.



** A couple of bonus dungeons that can be accessed after clearing the first and third chapters are named San Miguel[[note]]Setting of Boktai 2[[/note]] and Istrakan[[note]]Setting of Boktai[[/note]] respectively. Lucian's bonus weapons, found at the end of each one, have the names of the FinalBoss associated with that area's game.



* NecessarilyEvil: [[spoiler: Duke Dumas]] portrays himself this way, but it's not clear whether he even rose to the level of NobleDemon beforehand. [[spoiler:Given that Ratatosk (or the Count), implied precede him, was in more or less open rebellion against the Galaxy-Universe the immortals serve during the third game, it's every bit as likely that Dumas killed his lord and murdered Aaron's father to keep the Galactic Immortals happy and to destabilize his biggest local opposition in one fell swoop]].
