* GuiltBasedGaming: Don't dare you choose not to play the second loop in ''[=DaiOuJou=]'' when prompted, or you'll be given the same ending you get when completing the first loop without meeting the requirements for the second loop!

** Unlike the original ''[=DoDonPachi=]'' (where you had to reach the second loop before continuing), ''[=DoDonPachi=]: [=DaiOuJou=]'' does not allow you to continue even in the second loop![[note]]To make things even worse, no second players can join the game by that point![[/note]]

* DownerEnding: At the end of the first loop in ''[=DonPachi=]'', [[spoiler:the horrible truth is [[TheReveal revealed]] to the player that the pilot has been fighting comrades the whole time (and apparently knew it).]] At the end of the game, [[spoiler:take [[http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/arcade/d/donparun.htm a moment of silence for the thousands of your fellow soldiers you've killed]].]] The sequel is perhaps even more chilling because [[spoiler:you are tricked by your commander, Colonel Longhena, into believing that the invading enemy force are mechanized aliens, and you don't know that they're really your comrades until your commander reveals this upon you unlocking the second loop. In the endings for ''Dai Ou Jou'', Shotia's memory is deleted bit by bit until the last memories in her are of her human days and she smiles fondly of them as they go too, and Exy goes crazy and chokes her operator to death while crying blood, then goes and does things leading to ''Dai Fukkatsu''. And, part of the true ending of ''Dai Fukkatsu'' is that your mothership is destroyed by Colonel Longhena. Another sort of ending like this is '''Dai Fukkatsu''' and it's Arrange Mode A ending, Leinyan (The human defending one, not her human killing Ray'n version) finds Next EXY's Data and tries to tell her she is going about changing the future all wrong, and wonders if Next EXY didn't start all this in the first place, who did? Cut to GENERAL Longhena.]]

* PointOfNoContinues: You can't continue anymore once you reach the second loop in ''[=DaiOuJou=]''; should you lose all your lives at this point, your game will be over instantly and for real even if there are credits available!
** Oh, and you can't have a second player to join in solely to be helped out (which in turn makes the "no more continuing" rule unbreakable). Rely exclusively on your skills instead!

** You know ''[=DaiOuJou=] DEATH Label'' down below? If you beat it once, you get the chance to do it again, but with [[OneHitWonder only one life]], all the bosses immune to bombs... ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCKZj2Xss9A&t=2m15s and your laser bomb actually healing the boss]]''! At the end of the video, you see what is called the "True Hibachi -Custom-." In the first run, you fight two Hibachis; however, they're toned down individually compared to the original. In the second loop, they are both at ''full power''.

* UpdatedRerelease: ''[=DoDonPachi=]'' has the above-mentioned ''Campaign Version'' . ''dai ou jou'' has Black Label, which tweaks a few second loop mechanics, allows a 1-loop game, and fixes some chaining paths. ''[=DaiFukkatsu=] BLACK Label'', on the other hand, is more of a GaidenGame.

* HardModeFiller: Many games in the series require you to unlock and clear the second loop just to face the TrueFinalBoss. ''[=DaiFukkatsu=] BLACK LABEL'' and ''[=SaiDaiOuJou=]'' are exceptions, being one-loop affairs where you face the TFB at the end of the only loop if certain conditions are met.
