* PointOfNoContinues - ''Salamander 2'' locks out continues once you reach the [[HarderThanHard "Experts-only" second loop]].[[note]]Which also changes the music of some stages to remixed versions of music from the original Salamander.[[/note]] Downplayed in that [[DropInDropOutMultiplayer it still allows a second player to join in]]... up to until you clear final stage again or lose all your lives, of course!

** In ''Salamander 2'', you could do rolls like in later entries in the ThunderForce series. And like in ''Thunder Force'', it does nothing but [[RuleOfCool look stylish.]]

Compare ''VideoGame/{{Parodius}}'', which is Konami taking [[SerialNumbersFiledOff this series]] and giving it a CuteEmUp redesign. [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs And pumped with enough LSD to drop an elephant]]. Also compare ''{{Otomedius}}'', an anime parody series which has a lot of breasts and FanService.

* GameMod: The Japanese Lifeforce arcade is this to Salamander itself, changing most of the graphics and altering some gameplay physics. It's very similar to what Nintendo did to create the overseas SuperMarioBros2

* ItWasHisSled - the "?" powerup. In the original game, it's function was likely intended to be a mystery that you had to get to the end of the powerup bar to solve. Nowadays, ''everyone'' knows what it does (shield/force field), but it's still referred to as "?" for posterity's sake.
