* Cap - The maximum multiplier in the first game is 49,999,999 which can be reached near the end of the game by very skilled players. In the second game, the maximum multiplier is 999,999,999; this can be reached in the third stage out of 7 with skill. Amazingly, the score caps in any game are nigh unreachable.

* SequelEscalation - Each game ups the ante with more medals to collect and thus more points to be had. ''Giga Wing''[='=]s 15 digits? Nothing compared to ''Giga Wing 2''[='=]s 17 digits...which in turn is surpassed by ''Giga Wing Generations'', quite possibly the only commercial game where you can achieve '''20-digit scores.'''

* MinimalistRun - ''Giga Wing'' allows for a 0-score run, but it is very difficult as it is also a PacifistRun, as your medal-increased multiplier starts off at 1. ''Giga Wing 2'', on the other hand, starts your multiplier off at ''zero'', meaning that so long as you never pick up a single medal, you can commit total genocide of the enemy forces and still finish with a score of 0.

** Uses 3D graphics instead of 2D, and adds a new kind of reflect attack, the Reflect Laser. Also introduces the "volcano" mechanic: if enough medals are on the screen, a "volcano" of medals will erupt, producing even more medals. The Dreamcast port adds a 4-player option, a rarity for a shoot-em-up.

** In the second game, there is a cap of 110 medals on screen as well as an unknown total object cap; reaching either will cause an item volcanon, where the background will go black and then each medal will split into 10 or more kite-shaped medals.

* GratuitousEnglish - ''Giga Wing 2'': "RIFUREKUTO FO-SU!"
** And when the reflector charges up again, the voice is supposed to say "Okay", but it sounds like "Otay".
