** Fantasy World: [[VideoGame/{{Klonoa}} Lolo, the Omiko]], and [[VideoGame/LegendOfTheValkyrie Valkyrie]] all serve the goddess [[VideoGame/TheTowerOfDruaga Ishtar]], adding their might to that of her favored LadyAndKnight BattleCouple [[VideoGame/TheTowerOfDruaga Gilgamesh and Ki]]. Speaking of, those two have not only worked with [[VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins Arthur]] in the past, to the point he's considered the Silver Knight to Gilgamesh's Golden Knight, they're all regarded as legends by the likes of [[VideoGame/{{Klonoa}} Klonoa and Guntz]], [[VideoGame/LegendOfTheValkyrie Kurino Sandra and Sabine]], and even [[VideoGame/TalesSeries Stahn Alleron and Rutee Katret]]. After Stahn and Rutee failed to retrieve the [[{{MacGuffin}} Eye of God]] from a friend of theirs who stole it for some desperate purpose, said weapon would be stolen again by [[VideoGame/LegendOfTheValkyrie Black Valkyrie]], who is all too aware of its power. Said friend, [[VideoGame/TalesSeries Leon Magnus]], is later revived and corrupted by Black Valkyrie (as are [[Franchise/StreetFighter Rose]] and [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Armor King]], but that's just the wall between worlds crumbling).

* SpeakingSimlish: Averted with VideoGame/{{Klonoa}} (who has this as a signature trope); Namco opted for him to speak proper Japanese instead. This is because the incarnation of the character appearing in the game was the one from ''Klonoa Heroes'', one of two ''Klonoa'' games (three if you count the language track option in the ''[[VideoGame/KlonoaDoorToPhantomile Door to Phantomile]]'' UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}make) where the characters spoke a proper language instead of Simlish.

* TheBattleDidntCount: Most bosses tend to retreat upon defeat. Subverted with Joker and Janga, for as much as they escape, for them its mostly a case of KnowWhenToFoldEm.

Pronounced '''Namco Cross Capcom''' ("cross" as in "crossover"), it's a turn-based strategy RPG by Creator/MonolithSoft that was meant to be a Namco-only game until Namco decided that their own characters weren't enough and asked Capcom permission to use their characters. The game follows the quest of [[OriginalGeneration original]] protagonists Reiji Arisu and his Fox-spirit partner Xiaomu as they lead an army of Capcom and Namco heroes larger than anything ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2'' and ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]'' combined could shake a stick at, to save the multiverse as [[strike:we]] they know it from certain destruction by [[LegionOfDoom scores of villain teams]] and a nemesis of Reiji's who has resurfaced after ten years.

It is most notable for its unique battle system (a pseudo-fighting engine as a nod to the other entries here; unfortunately, it makes the stages take an absurd amount of time), curious character choices (see below), and the protagonists' stories continuing in ''EndlessFrontier: VideoGame/SuperRobotWars OG Saga'', with the sequel ''Endless Frontier EXCEED'' even continuing the story of the original characters. And because of this, you can find the complete translated script [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/926007/47929 here]]. Yes, the game is THAT text-heavy.

Also notable for its (fantastic) opening sequence, which was animated by Creator/ProductionIG and appears to have been directed by HiroyukiImaishi (of ''Anime/DeadLeaves'', ''[[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Gurren Lagann]]'' and ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' fame).

VideoGame/ProjectXZone is a 3DS-only sequel to this game, and Sega is another company represented in the game. Everyone thought ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'' and ''Tekken x Street Fighter'' would be a sequel, or at least a spiritual successor, but both are more akin to being {{Spiritual Successor}}s of the ''Vs.'' line, with ''[=SFxT=]'' developed by Creator/{{Capcom}}, and ''[=TxSF=]'' developed by Creator/{{Namco|Bandai}}.
