* EvenEvilHasStandards: Evil of ''BattleRevolution'', during a tag-team tournament, when your partner is in the middle of a HeroicBSOD, he tells his partner to stop fighting (making the match a 1 on 1) claiming he doesn't like fighting 2 on 1. Played for HypocriticalHumor as a BrickJoke in "The Grand Battle" epilogue, where he is your partner for the 2 on 1 tournament.
** It makes sense that he'd do that for show during the main story mode, since at that point, he's still supposed to be the hero that everyone likes. He's not [[spoiler:outed as a badguy, yet]]. He's just a jerk that runs a rival group of bounty hunters that everyone likes better than the Steal Hearts.

[[SequelDisplacement The best-known game]] to North American players is the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]] release, since the earlier three [[NoExportForYou didn't make it out of Japan]]. The plot of the most popular game involves a talkative protagonist, a smart-aleck womanizer, and a girl who can see the last memories of a robo commander. Everyone uses robos, including the police (who actually do some things), criminals, and you. Notable in that they actually explain (to an extent) why the hell nobody ever carries a gun (Robos are actually quite effective weapons even with safeties on [[spoiler:also, they are the only thing that can even hope to fight Rahu]]) , why custom robos are so popular ([[spoiler:They are the only reason humanity is still alive, though GovernmentConspiracy means no one remembers while at the same time ensuring robos remain popular to prevent the end of the world from happening ''again'']]), why you never get to pick which stage you fight on (A person can or can not "make" a stage as a genetic ability, the hero is among the ones that can't), and why you never seem to get paid (your boss is an extreme penny pincher, and everything you get goes to living expenses).

** Also in ''Arena'', the commander for the 16th combo mission battle will yell "[[PatBenatar Hit me with your best shot! Fire away!]]" prior to fighting him.

**[[spoiler:Ray Legend]], a secret Robo in Battle Revolution [[spoiler:based off of the original Ray model,]] also counts. Sporting more power than even [[spoiler: Rahu III]] but less defense than your average Little Raider, [[spoiler: Ray Legend]] makes up for this lack of bulk by packing a whopping SIX air dashes with which to completely dance around attacks.



** In ''GX'', however, it is an outright GameBreaker

** Battle Revolution brings us [[spoiler: Ray Legend]], an obsolete version of [[spoiler: Ray (based off the Ray model from the original game, no less!]] That, true to its outdated nature, is the frailest robo in the game. It's also the hardest-hitting robo in the game, and makes up for its poor defenses by possessing six air dashes[[note]]four more than a Shining Fighter model, which this robo technically is, should have[[/note]] with which to approach, escape, and dodge with incredible ease.

* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: Some robo models, including the [[SeriesMascot Ray Mk II]], appeared as collectible trophies in ''SuperSmashBrosMelee''. This was the first appearance of these characters on western shores, which sparked interest in the franchise, leading to the release of ''Battle Revolution'' in the US, and the release of ''Arena'' in all regions.



* NoExportForYou: Neither of the N64 originals (''Custom Robo'', ''Custom Robo V2'') were ported to Western shores.
** Nor was ''Custom Robo GX'' for the Game Boy Advance.
*** ''Custom Robo: Battle Revolution'' [[SequelFirst made it to the US]] as just ''Custom Robo''. Not the EU, though, making ''Custom Robo Arena'' the '''only''' game available to the in all regions.
*** In a somewhat unusual example, the various versions of the games have region-locked Wifi, creating separate networks for each of the JP, US and EU versions. This basically means that a European player cannot battle Japanese or American players, and vice versa.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The Misty Mirage class of robos from ''GX'' have well rounded stats and a unique 'Mirage Dash', which rendered them completely invisible for a short period of time and enabled them to phase through walls, while retaining full regular movement instead of a quick burst of speed.[[note]]Unlike Strike Vanishers and Burning Beasts, however, they can't dodge gunfire during the Mirage Dash[[/note]] While completely redundant against the AI, this allows for mind games and sneak attacks against human opponents. Sadly though, they have not appeared in either of the subsequent titles, likely because they'd be difficult to implement in a 3D environment.

* BoringButPractical: The 3-Way Gun. Mild damage and one of the earliest guns in the game. But with solid homing and the sheer amount of projectiles just falling short of a MacrossMissileMassacre , The gun can be depended upon for most of the game. Plus if used at point blank range, all the projectiles can be made to hit, doing massive damage to just about everything.

* YouAllLookFamiliar: Lampshaded in the GameCube game. During the police-sponsored doubles tournament, a pair of "Boy" characters claim that they are going to lose because they were unnamed, and would bemoan this fact every time they are spoken to. They manage to make it to the top eight pairs, however, because everybody in their tournament block was also a unnamed "Boy" character.
