* CheckpointStarvation: There are no checkpoints in the levels themselves. Clearing a stage will drop you at the start, but die three times and it's back to the beginning of the round.

* DenialOfDiagonalAttack: Played with. While Doropie can't shoot diagonally by herself, she gets some consolation. She can shoot upwards, and the Ball Weapon fires diagonally.

* DubNameChange: From Doropie to Francesca. Also theAkidama Empire was changed to the Krion Empire.
* EpilepticFlashingLights: The text that flashes during the BossWarningSiren flickers incredibly fast, to the degree that its only visible for a third of a second.



* ExcusePlot: To an extent. The plot's very simple, but for an NES game there's a fair amount of text in cutscenes.



* NintendoHard: Hard as balls largely because of the level layouts and enemy placement. The American version is even harder because you can't continue from your dying spot.

* ClassicCheatCode: Though originally thought to be [[http://qiezei.blogspot.com/2010/12/today-is-december-14-and-20-years-ago.html dummied out characters]], Kagemaru and the unnamed character (who is believed to just be Doropie in an alternate outfit) are playable via button-pressing codes, though the game's cutscenes still show regular Doropie. Similar codes exist for invulnerability and stage select.

* BossWarningSiren: {{Boss Only Level}}s are herald with a screen saying "ALERT!!" in big letters on a black screen flashing red. The player then appears in the level while the boss makes its entrance. When the boss's entrance is finished, a "Data File" on the boss appears, listing its name, health, strengh, speed, damage and special ability. However, in the final stage, none of the final three bosses have any alert screens or data profiles, although the siren is still heard while the final boss is materialising.
