* TurnOfTheMillennium: In 1999, a year that would be later known as the "Dawn of Revival", something tried to enter reality through electric circuitry, while effecting everyone in the way someone may describe as being touched by God. Anything electronic was banned, and despite the negative drastic changes it would bring nobody complained because everyone was that scared of whatever it was actually succeeding coming through. As the society was about to collapse, a group of mages calling themselves the Apostles revealed themselves and begun teaching everyone willing the ways of magic. By 2010, the usage of magic was standardized, with the Apostles themselves becoming a foundation of a new religion.

** ''Xrd Revelator'' manages to trump them all [[spoiler: by revealing that Sanctus Maximus Populi Ariels is actually the Universal Will,, the being that not only created the Valentines but is also the being who first brought magic into the setting, essentially creating the whole setting of the series. And not only that but she was also an A.I. created by The Original visitor to the Backyard in an effort to guide humanity. Unfortunately she found that humanities destructiveness made them hopeless and the best thing to do was to exterminate them all, making her the definitive BigBad of the series]].

* CapcomSequelStagnation: ''Guilty Gear XX'' has seen saw five "special edition" rereleases so far (the most recent in summer 2012), though each version does add updated releases between 2002 and 2012 - at first just because the assets were still good, but after ''Accent Core'' it was because the rights to the complexity of franchise got weird. Each update did add more to the game.game, though.



* DependingOnTheArtist: Despite Ishiwatari doing all of the game's core character design, the portrait and arcade/story mode still art has varied a ''lot'' over the years depending on who works on the games, and the sprites often looking a bit different than the other art due to the style. ''Overture'' might be the most dramatic example, with the shift to awkward 3D and many of the characters suddenly looking like they stepped out of an Ayami Kojima ''{{Franchise/Castlevania}}'' game. As of ''[=Xrd=]'', [=ArcSys=] seems to be taking steps to keep the depictions somewhat more stylistically consistent across media.

** ''Xrd Revelator'' has one at the end of its story as well, despite it initially seeming to end on both a high note and a very definitive note. [[spoiler:So Jack-O merges with Justice, Aria is reborn, the Universal Will is defeated, Elphelt is saved. But That Man - Asuka R. Kreuz, Sol's former friend - confronts Sol in TheStinger and admits that with Aria whole again, it is time they settle their own business at last. And also, Aria is whole again... except her Justice half didn't want to merge, because it was wracked with guilt over the atrocities it had committed. Just what mental state is Aria going to be in when she wakes up?]]

* FinalBoss: An uncommon case among most fighters in that every final boss in the main installments (including ''X'' and ''XX'') [[AlwaysFemale has been a woman]]. In order, they are Justice, Dizzy, I-No, Valentine, and [[spoiler:Ramlethal Valentine]]. For bonus points, they all share an at least tangential connection with one or more of the other characters on that list. Spin-offs ''Isuka'', ''Dust Strikers'', and ''Judgment'' break this convention with Leopaldon, Gig, and Judgment, though Gig half-subverts it (he has a [[WasOnceAMan formerly human maiden]] sticking out from his lower body).

It's been more consistent since Aksys became the franchise's more or less permanent publisher, though, though occasionally there's still a slip-up.
