* AllThereInTheManual: The plot, although even this depends on whether you have the Japanese version, the International release, or ''Super Heroes''.
* AmbiguousGender: Red's gender was never given in the Japanese version of ''Super Heroes'', not helped with the somewhat boyish voice the character was given which could swing in [[{{Bishonen}} either]] [[{{Bifauxnen}} direction]]. Western versions of the game [[AvertedTrope averts]] this by explicitly refering Red as a girl.

** The only source of Red's gender in ''Super Heroes'', as far as Japanese media goes, is in magazine previews and interviews.

Western versions of the game [[AvertedTrope averts]] this by explicitly refering referring Red as a girl.


Added DiffLines:

* MarketBasedTitle: The sequel is named ''Gunstar Future Heroes'' in Europe.

* NotWhatItSoundsLike: Most people think the "seven" in "Seven Force" refers to how many forms it has; it actually references the SNES' Mode 7, since Seven Force is designed to showcase Mode 7-style rotation on the Genesis / Mega Drive. This is why the Seven Force in ''VideoGame/AlienSoldier'' only has six forms.
** The Alien Soldier head developer actually commented that he was sad that the game's incarnation of Seven Force didn't get to have seven forms due to [[WhatCouldHaveBeen time constraints.]] This implies the name held a double meaning all along.

* ZeroEffortBoss: Melon Bread. There's absolutely nothing it can do to hurt you... about all it does is sniff at you and dance around on the top of the screen.

The original game was first made available post-Genesis on the [=PS2=] Sega Ages series (with less slowdown) which...alas...is a fine example of NoExportForYou. However, it is now available for download on {{Virtual Console}}, Xbox Live, PSN, [[{{IOS}} iOS]] and UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}, as well as the ''3D Classics'' line of remasterings on UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS.
