* AllThereInTheManual: The manual in the localized US version explains every aspect of their game with tender, loving care. Quite unusual for a shoot 'em up. Character and world backstories, point systems, variations between modes. The manual even gives you the game's own exploits for finding [[OneUp 1-Ups]] and getting your score really high.

* CallBack: Meta example: In the Xbox 360 version of the first game, you get an Achievement just for pausing the game. One of the Achievements in the next game requires you to briefly check the pause screen by double-tapping start. The name of it lampshades this.

* DifficultyByRegion: According to test runs by some players, the US version has less slowdown, making it more difficult than the Japanese version. In some cases, the US version runs at an average speed of 150% that of the Japanese version. This leads to some FridgeLogic when you consider that American players on average have less experience with BulletHell games than Japanese players.
** Cave eventually admitted to optimizing the code for the US region, and in turn, removing slowdown in numerous spaces.
** A patch is available for the North American version that, according to players, brings the level of slowdown closer to the Japanese Xbox 360 version.

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Arguably [[spoiler:Tyrannosatan]]. He has no real relevance to the plot; he simply shows up from the portal to the demon world without warning and ''eats'' the BigBad after you've beaten him.
** Debatable. Although Jitterbug opened the gate for him, it's very likely he's the mastermind behind the invasion that resulted.
** Mary the Giant Cow qualifies for this trope better. Seriously. A GIANT COW.

** In the second game, at first the only playable characters were Windia, Casper, Supe and Lei. Rosa and Follett return for the consoles, making the canon up in the air -- well, except for Rosa; she may not be playable, but she clearly appears as an NPC in the introduction for Supe.
