* {{Crossover}}: Aside from [[IkariWarriors Ralf & Clark]] and Fio (noted below) Mars People were mid-boss for ''[[CapcomVsWhatever SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos]]'' and playable in ''[[MascotFighter Neo Geo Battle Coliseum]]'' alongside Marco Rossi. Not to mention the appearance of the ENTIRE cast on the ''Card Fighter'' games.

''Metal Slug'' is a series of games from Creator/{{SNK}}. (The series was actually created by Nazca, a company founded by former Creator/{{Irem}} employees after the 1994 bankruptcy and merged into SNK a few years later.) Basically, it's a run-and-gun {{shoot em up}} series. Shoot everything that takes damage, rescue prisoners and collect power-ups from their underwear, attempt to stay alive.

* OneHitPointWonder: It's an arcade run-and-gun game, so no surprises here. If you're in a Slug, it will take 3 (or rarely 4) hits for you. There are, however, some aversions:

* UnexpectedGameplayChange: Occasionally, ''Metal Slug'' games will shift from a run-and-gun to a ShootEmUp. Okay, so they're not all that different as genres (some people class the former under the latter, even), but the way you play changes a bit.

* ArtisticLicenseChemistry: In ''3D'', Eri claims that a sunken ruined city was radiocarbon dated to be 8 billion years old. The writers know how impossible this should be ([[LampshadeHanging Marco points out that Earth is only 4.6 billion years old]]) but that still doesn't account for how the Regular Army was able to pull radiocarbon dating on something older than 50,000 years old. Although, carbon dating is hilariously inaccurate in the first place (KFC chicken comes back as 10,000 years old) and can be safely ignored for the most part.

* AmenBreak: "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cufej7tjmkA People who had a Hard Time" in ''Metal Slug 3D'', several tracks in ''3D'' and ''7'' borrowed the elements from the break but played with their own instrument, only the aforementioned track blatantly sampled "Amen, Brothers".

** Taken UpToEleven in the Xbox (not to be confused with the one on the 360) port of ''3''. Using a continue starts you from the beginning of the level. If you've played the game, you'll know that expecting a player to complete the final mission with only 5 lives '''at most''' is nothing short of insane. This is particularly grating considering the otherwise identical PS2 version ([[NoExportForYou not released in the US]]) has unlimited continues. [[spoiler: However, in the Xbox version you can effectively double your lives by having two controllers plugged in, and pressing Start on the second immediately after you lose your last life on the first.]]
