The game series as a whole is notable for being programmed by S. Yagawa, who also worked on many [[EightingRaizing 8ing/Raizing]] games such as BattleGaregga and ArmedPoliceBatrider.

* SpiritualSuccessor -- The gameplay, bullet patterns, stage transitions, and other minor aesthetic touches (such as displaying the song name in the bottom-left of the screen) are all heavily based on Raizing's "Bat" series[[note]] :''BattleGaregga'', ''ArmedPoliceBatrider'', and ''BattleBakraid''[[/note]]. It helps that all of these games were programmed by the same guy, S. Yagawa.

[[caption-width-right:234:Every rose has its thorns / Bullets enough for a world war to adorn]]

''Ibara'' is a BulletHell ShootEmUp by {{Cave}}. Teresa Rose announces the creation of a massive Rose Garden with the power to take over the world, so two "negotiators", Bond (Red) and Dyne (Blue), must stop her and her daughters.

It received a sequel named ''Pink Sweets'' in which the bosses of ''Ibara'' (except for Teresa Rose) are now the playable characters. They must rescue their mother from her ex-husband Big Burn and his maids.

The game series as a whole is notable for being programmed by S. Yagawa, who also worked on many [[EightingRaizing 8ing/Raizing]] games such as BattleGaregga and ArmedPoliceBatrider.

!!''[=Ibara=]'' contains examples of:

* AbsoluteCleavage -- Teresa Rose in ''Ibara'' and Socie Soar in ''Pink Sweets''
* AnnouncerChatter -- Announcing all pickups in ''Ibara''
* ArtShift -- The character designer for both games remained the same, but the backgrounds and enemies changed significantly. In the first game, everything was designed to look like {{steampunk}}-esque contraptions with rose-like designs. For example, tanks had rose-shaped blades instead of treads or wheels. In the second game, the backgrounds are made of simple geometry and the enemies look like candy and colorful blocky toys.
* BoobsOfSteel -- The bosses of ''Ibara'' are fought in order of how big their boobs are, starting with the flat-chested Meidi Rose and ending with the displayer of AbsoluteCleavage Teresa Rose.
* CallingYourAttacks -- Especially in ''Pink Sweets''
* ChargeAttack -- In ''Ibara'' this is how the hadou gun is used. Each playable character can do their own charge attack in ''Pink Sweets''. The X-box 360 arrange mode of ''Pink Sweets'' uses both the original charge attack and the hadou gun on the same button.
* ChineseGirl -- Uni Ulysses from ''Pink Sweets''
* CreatorCameo -- Bond and Dyne from ''Ibara'' are voiced by staff members.
* DynamicDifficulty -- This game series has Rank, just like the "Bat" series, thanks to programmer S. Yagawa.
* ElegantGothicLolita -- Especially Kasumi Rose.
* EvilCounterpart -- The Rose sisters were not exactly good, but Big Burn and his candy maids are even more evil, with each one corresponding to one of the Rose women. Big Burn is a fatherly figure to each of the maids as well, corresponding to how Teresa was the mother of the Rose daughters in ''Ibara'', except that all but one of the maids of ''Pink Sweets'' were borne by other women. [[spoiler: Big Burn is also this to the heroes of the first game, since he can do the hadou gun just like them.]]
* FanService -- There's hardly any reason for the bosses (and in ''Pink Sweets'', also the playable characters) to look or dress like they do, since they are seldom seen outside of their ships.
* GottaCatchEmAll -- True to the game's spiritual roots, it has medal chaining.
* HotMom -- Teresa Rose, pictured right, is the mother of the other Rose women.
* HotTeacher -- Teresa Rose was originally a professor.
* HumongousMecha -- Many of them in ''Pink Sweets''
* MacrossMissileMassacre -- In ''Ibara'' this is the result of equipping three rockets or homings. In ''Pink Sweets'', "Viper missile, where?"
* MarathonLevel -- ''Pink Sweets'' stage 5 is extremely long compared to the previous four.
* MeaningfulName -- The word "ibara" means thorny rose. There are many flower motifs throughout the game, to say the least, and mechanical objects are also purposely designed to look like they have thorns or are rose-shaped.
* {{Meganekko}} -- Lace Rose starts wearing glasses in ''Pink Sweets''
* MoreDakka -- In ''Ibara'' this is the result of equipping three gatlings or 5-ways.
* RedOniBlueOni -- The two player characters of ''Ibara''.
* SayItWithHearts -- Socie Soar speaks like this in ''Pink Sweets''
* SexyBacklessOutfit -- Shasta Rose in both games.
* SexySecretary -- Lace Rose, especially in ''Pink Sweets''
* ShockAndAwe -- Lace Rose's shots in ''Pink Sweets'': "Lightning Laser..." "Thunder Storm..."
* ShoutOut -- Shasta Rose is named after Mount Shasta, a real place in California
* ShrugOfGod -- The ages of the Rose women are intentionally not given so that the players can "use their imaginations"
* SpiritualSuccessor -- The gameplay, bullet patterns, stage transitions, and other minor aesthetic touches (such as displaying the song name in the bottom-left of the screen) are all heavily based on Raizing's "Bat" series[[hottip:* :''BattleGaregga'', ''ArmedPoliceBatrider'', and ''BattleBakraid'']]. It helps that all of these games were programmed by the same guy, S. Yagawa.
** ''Pink Sweets'' gives further nods to ''ArmedPoliceBatrider'' by having the playable characters be slightly visible and riding on flying machines, and having stage 6 be longer than the previous five stages combined.
* {{Steampunk}}
* {{Stripperiffic}} -- Especially [[SexyBacklessOutfit Shasta Rose]].
* TankGoodness -- Goes with the genre, notable because they have spiky wheels instead of treads.
* WaveMotionGun -- The result of holding down the bomb button, and it is literally translated as "wave motion gun" (hadou gun). Then in ''Pink Sweets'', Shasta Rose can do '''SHINING BEAM!''' [[spoiler: Big Burn can also do the hadou gun from the first game.]]
* WhiteHairedPrettyGirl -- All of the Rose women.
* YouShallNotPass -- The bosses of ''Pink Sweets'' say many variations of this
* {{Zeerust}} -- The enemies of ''Pink Sweets'' are strongly influenced by 50's science fiction
* ZettaiRyouiki -- Lots
