* ActionGirl: Usagi tends to prefer Borgs of this style, possibly making her an example by extension. [[spoiler: Based on how she dresses in the cast shot in the finale - she's the one in the basketball uniform - Orochi is this once the Galactic Emperor's mind control is finally broken.]]

* AnIcePerson: Anything with Ice or Blizzard in its name. [[spoiler: The third wave of the fight against the Galactic Emperor has him become one as well.]]



* BareFistedMonk: The aptly-named Knuckle borg series. They are melee specialists that frequently have a quirk that keeps opponents from attacking effectively, like Tao Master's swords that act like an AttackDrone or a Jelly Diver's field that slows down all nearby foes.



* ChromeChampion: Any silver-palette borg (designated with an "S"), which will be treated as being four levels above what it otherwise would have. After [[GoldColoredSuperiority gold borgs]], the most powerful and valuable alternate palette.



* DarkActionGirl: Orochi might downplay her femininity (and her gender is barely mentioned during play), but there's no question that she's the head asskicker for the bad guys for much of the plot. In fact, several fights against her are a HopelessBossFight unless you're on a NewGamePlus or severely over-level before you take her on.

Tama - overweight {{Jerkass}} who only sides with Kou because Kou protects him from Orochi. He never bothers trying to redeem himself; he merely acts less hostile and expects folks to like him for it.

Girls are the most obvious, but as they're all toy-sized robots, all female borgs are this.

Borgs. They're all built for hit-and-run tactics, with small hit point pools but high mobility. Ninja borgs are more focused on melee strikes, while Girl and Angel borgs are more suited for ranged attacks.

* HenshinHero: Gold Hero and Metal Hero.

to:

* HenshinHero: Gold Hero and Metal Hero. Gold Hero has the advantage of his power attacks having no wind-up time, but the disadvantage of [[HourOfPower not being able to stay in his powered-up form]].



* HourOfPower: Gold Hero can only stay in his transformed state for a limited amount of time. His base state has a very slow projectile and only average melee attacks, plus cannot stay in the air as long.

borgs, which are typically the slowest borgs but with some of the strongest attacks to go with their huge bank of hit points.
*
{{Mooks}}: The Death Borg units. units, which play like low-powered knockoffs of other Borg types. For example, the Death Borg Alpha series is a weaker version of the Ninja borgs, while the Death Borg Zeta series is a weaker version of the Samurai borgs. MechaMooks, specifically.specifically. If the player gets access to them, they're cheaper to use than regular borgs of the appropriate type, but with less power and they get distinctly less out of levels than any other type.



* {{Ninja}}: Naturally, the various Ninja borgs, who specialize in fast movement, dodging, and situational ranged attacks to set up strong melee strikes. Different ninjas specialize in various stereotypes of ninjas - the Shuriken Ninja specializes in using a FuumaShuriken, the Double Ninja attacks with a DoppelgangerSpin, the Acceleration Ninja is absurdly fast, and so on.



* PainfullySlowProjectile: Several of the more powerful projectiles, particularly from low-ranked borgs, move exceptionally slow. Generally, these are either powerful strikes whose speed is to make up for their power, an explosive that has a range wide enough to mitigate dodging, or are effectively a RangedEmergencyWeapon on a melee-focused borg.

* SizeShifter: Star Hero and Planet Hero can temporarily become the size of the high-end Dragon borgs. They get a suitable increase in damage, but they become bigger targets as well.



* SpinAttack

to:

* SpinAttackSpinAttack: Many dash attacks, particularly on Angel and Machine Borgs.



* SwordBeam: Musha Borgs and Vampire Knight.

to:

* SwordBeam: Musha Borgs and Vampire Knight.Knight fire them when outside of melee range.



* TooDumbToLive: A CPU-controlled ICBM Tank will fire its signature attack on you the second it's able. A few problems with that, though. One, there's [[CrosshairAware a conspicuous crosshair on the stage]] where the missile will land. Two, once designated, the missile will not veer course for anything. Three, the ICBM is one of the few attacks where allies receive full damage instead of ScratchDamage if they land. Four, the ICBM Tank itself has poor mobility. Consequently, when the computer brings one out, it's trivially easy to get close, wait for it to target an area that will include said ICBM tank, then run away and watch the opponent blow itself (and possibly other CPU allies) to dust.



* WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou

to:

* WeCannotGoOnWithoutYouWeCannotGoOnWithoutYou: Specifically applies to the player's squad in general; it doesn't matter if all of your named borgs are done, but as long as you have even the merest Normal Ninja, your side can win.


Added DiffLines:

** Magnet Robot + can pull in all borgs within a certain distance closer. Inverted with Magnet Robot -, who repels all borgs within a certain distance.

* NewGamePlus: You keep all your Borgs, your experience, ''and'' rare Borgs appear more frequently. You actually get a new save file each time, denoting further levels of "plus-ness," up to a maximum of eight. Defeating additional playthroughs also nets you rarer and rarer [[PaletteSwap Palette Swaps]] of G Red.

Added DiffLines:

* ZergRush: Several missions consist of you being overrun by a large number of cheap enemy units (made worse by the fact that the AI's units are cheaper than yours) against your generally 4-8 decent borgs.
** While not being a straight example, Kakeru's force plays on this concept. His team consists mostly of several copies of the cheaper Normal Ninja and Double Ninja borgs, giving him a much larger number of borgs than other characters throughout the game.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodBadBugs: The game has a rather strange, complicated one commonly called the 20th Force Glitch. Referring to the buggy 20th force slot in the force creation screen, it's possible to create sequences of borgs placed in the force slots, that allows you to change borgs into other borgs, making it possible to get G-Black and Galactic Emperor without using cheat devices by sacrificing another borg you don't need. The glitch also allows you to adjust a borg's level, color, and certain attributes.
** Several years after the glitch was initially discovered, people have also discovered that it's possible to create "mutant borgs" with other sequences that give them the attributes of other borgs. The effects of these changes range from borgs losing body parts/attacks (ie. a Bug Witch lacking hands and being impaled by her staff), to borgs getting larger ammo capacities on their attacks, significantly more HP, significantly faster recharge rates, etc.
