* {{Demons}}: After the tutorial stage, U-1 is immediately confronted by Panpeus, a baby-faced red demon wielding a Gitaroo that's almost literally an axe (that can cut through space-time!).

* [[spoiler: BitterSweetEnding: U-1 is forced to return home, despite having come a long way with his love interest and making friends on Gitaroo world. Back on Earth, his new found self confidence and badassery lets him stand up to the bully and make a different but similar girl notice him.]]

* CreatorThumbprint: It has all the themes that would later define [=iNiS=]. Is it weird? [[WidgetSeries Yes]]. Is the music any good? ''[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Yes]]''. Is it hard? Let's just say that one fan has lovingly nicknamed it "[[NintendoHard Carpal Tunnelroo Man]]" and leave it at that.

** RockMeAsmodeus: Since this is a rhythm game, it's pretty obvious.



* PunnyName: Scattered throughout the game. U-1 would be read as Yuichi in Japanese or rather like Ewan in English, [[LuckyTranslation both being boys' names]]; Ben-K, the robotic shark, is probably ([[ThatOneBoss fittingly enough]],) a reference to [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/benkei.html this guy]], church Gitaroo wielder Gregorio III brings to mind a Gregorian chant, and [[spoiler:Kirah is a pun on "killer", hinting at her TykeBomb nature.]]

* RichJerk: Kazuya.



* RockMeAsmodeus: The first boss, Panpeus, is an axe/guitar playing devil.



* [[RichBitch Snobby Talented Rich Guy]]: Kazuya.



* [[ThisLoserIsYou This Loser Is U-1]]
* ThreateningShark: The two stages after the third feature Ben-K. The first stage is '''[[ThatOneLevel really]]''' terrifying. The second stage is a BreatherLevel, probably because he's a HumongousMecha now.

* BeeAfraid: Haven't you heard? There's a new King in town. Mojo mojo mojo KING BEE! Truly one of the most terrifying characters ever.

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Most of the bosses at least get mentioned by Zowie before they show up, but Panpeus and Gregorio III just kind of...appear. Gregorio III doesn't even get a proper cutscene.



* HumongousMecha: Ben-K after the chase stage. U-1 and Puma get their own, called "Woofer-Mazing", to fight him (or for most of the stage, running the hell away).

* InvisibleBackupBand: Averted, as the backup band is visible every time there's a musical duel, but not a moment before and at no point after. Played straight as no one acknowledges they even exist, even though without them these epic duels would be all but impossible.

** Even U-1's Gitaroo changes sound depending on the enemy he's fighting against. In one level, it even sounds like a theremin.

** It could be argued that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuUVHyTEuSM Metal Header]] from Gitaroo Man Lives is done in the style of [[TheAquabats The Aquabats]]
** People have also noticed that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwQNGvYUFNo Toda Pasion]] sounds a lot like the works of Music/CarlosSantana.



* HeyItsThatVoice: AkiraIshida as [[TalkingToHimself Kazuya and Zowie]].



* TakeAThirdOption: The battle against [[spoiler:Kirah]]. It starts with U1 fighting her Gitaroo to Gitaroo. But midway through the song he can't bring himself to continue, despite urges from his allies to fight or be beaten. Rather then do either, he instead plays the love ballad he played to Kirah earlier. This convinces her to surrender the battle and her Gitaroo, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming after a duet]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome of course.]]
* TalkingToHimself: Kirah and Zowie are voiced by the same people who voice Pico and Kazuya, mainly to accentuate their {{Expy}}-ness.

* TheWikiRule: Like with ''{{Ouendan}}'' and ''EliteBeatAgents'', there's the [[http://inis.wikia.com/wiki/INiS_Wiki iNiS Wiki]]. There's even less content for this game than for the above mentioned games.
