** The [[NoNameGiven nameless protagonist]] of ''VideoGame/DigDug'' [[CanonName was rechristened as Taizo Hori]] [[note]]although to be fair, that example actually first occurred in ''VideoGame/MrDriller'', the SpinOffspring of ''Dig Dug''[[/note]] and turned into a CoolShades-wearing {{Badass}} on par with that of [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Captain]] [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Falcon]], while also being [[VideoGame/{{Baraduke}} Masuyo's]] ex. He's the current trope picture.

* {{Badass}}: Plenty of the cast. Notably, Akuma.

* ClusterFBomb: According to the GameFAQs fan translation, several characters are like this (or at least a T-rated version of this), most notably [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Mitsurugi]] and [[VideoGame/{{Klonoa}} Gantz]]. Both of them use an extremely crass and rude way of speaking (the former is basically a {{Samurai}} version of an ArrogantKungFuGuy and the latter speaks like a thug[=/=]{{delinquent}}). It's more of a translation adaptation.

* DebutQueue: The first few chapters are prologues introducing a few characters from each realm. These characters then [[GreenRooming disappear for a few stages after the prologues are over]], to deal with [[OriginalGeneration Reiji and Xiaomu's]] group until they join later. In fairness, they're from different dimensions entirely, and Reiji and Xiaomu are the main characters, but still...



* DumbIsGood: Felicia was convinced that King was a werejaguar, despite King telling her over and over that he was ''just a luchador wearing a mask''.

** King is a subversion. He's much smarter and more level-headed than she is, but that doesn't stop him from thinking Felicia was also just a neko cosplayer.

* LateArrivalSpoiler: The fact that [[spoiler: Saya is still alive come ''EndlessFrontier'' and ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'']] is already well-known by fans already. Hell, this is ''how'' [[MarthDebutedInSmashBros she debuted in]] [[EndlessFrontier the U.S.]]

* VideoGame/SuperRobotWars: Reiji and Xiaomu are pretty much official regulars in ''EndlessFrontier''. Saya also joins in, since she's TheRival and [[strike:has big enough breasts to fit in the world]] [[strike:is sexy enough to compete with the world]] has enough importance to be included as well. With ''EndlessFrontier'' a canon offshoot to the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'' universe, they're basically OG characters there as well.

* PlotTailoredToParty: Whenever the cast splits up, the [[VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}} Gnosis]] will conveniently only attack the groups with KOS-MOS or MOMO and Shion in them so they can cast the Hilbert Effect.

* ActionCommands: To bias the game towards the player, you can time button presses when an enemy attacks you, recovering AP. Get at least eighty percent of the attacks matched and you recover 2 AP. Note that you'll spend an average of 3-4 each turn and guarding only takes 1.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Allies leave maps with white smoke, enemies leave maps with black.

** The supposed LoveTriangle between Reiji, Xiaomu and Saya. It's not like that, really. Though, in fairness, the FoeYay between Reiji and Saya is palpable, and Xiaomu does care for Reiji a fair bit. [[spoiler: Case in point, her kiss at the end of the game]].



** Reiji and Xiaomu are a downplayed example: Both are competent in melee and long-ranged attacks, but Xiaomu has fox magic for her attacks.



* WalkingArmory: To a degree, Reiji, Xiaomu, and Saya. See SwordAndGun above.
** Contrast Hsien-Ko, the most blatant example of HyperspaceArsenal. In this game, she's revealed to hide various firearms [[AllYourPowersCombined belonging to her partners]] in her giant sleeves as well, all in addition to the more traditional weapons that she is normally associated with.

* TookALevelInBadass: many characters and enemies, have naturally been given this treatment due to the games nature, making every creature no matter the origin or style a threat. Moos and Grizzes from Klonoa, for example, were just fodder that walked around pretty innocently and shot slow moving projectiles (respectively), here they can surround their enemy and slash at them with their claws and fire exploding bullets (respectively).
