** A fair amount of people [[GenreSavvy figured out]]/[[ItWasHisSled already knew]] that Yellow Heart [[TheReveal would turn out to be]] [[spoiler:Peashy]].

* CutAndPasteEnvironments: A major flaw of the first game. One can see backgrounds from ''RecordOfAgarestWar'', ''VideoGame/TrinityUniverse'', and ''VideoGame/ArTonelicoMelodyOfElemia''. You also see monsters that were seen in ''VideoGame/CrossEdge'' and ''VideoGame/TrinityUniverse''. Fortunately this is changing with each installment.

* RuleThirtyFour: For an Idea Factory game, this is perhaps the most popular choice as ''VideoGame/CrossEdge'' and ''RecordOfAgarestWar'', despite being much more ecchi, had little to no RuleThirtyFour. For example, there are official NSFW dakimakura covers of Noire. That's all we need to say.

** The DLC 5pb recruitment story in this first game takes this to {{Anvilicious}} levels.

** The DLC 5pb recruitment story in this first game takes this to {{Anvilicious}} levels. A few naming schemes in the series even take this into a more forced "Homebrew is Evil" level.

* MerchandiseDriven: PlayedForLaughs when the party is accosted by a Momus cultist, who tries to get them to join the faith by hawking Momus paraphernalia, which takes the form of your average anime merch like soundtracks, art books, trading cards and even body pillows.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If you change Neptune's clothing and use her hammer skill in the field you can see that they took the time to change the color of her panties to match her stockings.

* {{Emoticon}}: Histoire seems to really like using this in her fairy mode. Although she drops this in later games, Ultradimension Histoire (running an earlier version) does use this constantly. ''VII'' shows that Hyperdimension Histoire is prone to falling back into this if she's dazed. Also in ''VII'', Ran-Pigs use one emoticon consistently to differentiate between them whenever they talk.

''VII'' shows that Hyperdimension Histoire is prone to falling back into this if she's dazed. In Re-Birth, she notes with some pride that she's the first character in the series to use them. Also in ''VII'', Ran-Pigs use one emoticon consistently to differentiate between them whenever they talk.



* UselessUsefulSpell: Aside from direct Attack, Defense, and Agility buffs and debuffs, physical attacks and Vitality quickly [[OneStatToRuleThemAll dominate the rest of a party's abilities]].



* YuriGenre: The franchise has a lot of ShipTease and HomoeroticSubtext, but it mostly stops here. Examples that fall squarely into this trope include the character Red, Iris Heart in ''Victory'', and Neptune and Noire's relationship in ''Re;[=Birth1=]'' (though the text implies it to be in an IfItsYouItsOkay sense).
** While it depends on the continuity, some of the characters have shown [[AmbiguouslyBi at least some interest in men]]. For example, in most continuities Vert is portrayed as a devoted YaoiFangirl while also devoted in finding a cute sister; in one scene in ''VII'' Neptune as Purple Heart flirts with Steamax. Some other sources would [[SubvertedTrope subvert]] or [[AvertedTrope avert]] this trope: The Noire spinoff [[spoiler:actually portrays Noire as most likely straight and makes her 'practise' confession to the self-insert male character;]] the Drama [=CDs=][[note]]Those can technically not be considered subversions, since WordOfGod claims that the characters are merely role-playing[[/note]], [=event DLCs, and VR=] content involve interacting with the goddesses with romantic implications, or even wooing the goddesses.
** ''VII'' has a lot of fun with this one: Nepgear can't stop thinking Uzume is adorable and gets very attached to her, Vert all-but petitions Nepgear while taking a bath, Uni pulls heavy-duty emotional support for Nepgear later on, K-Sha is {{Yandere}} for Noire and ''[[LoveConfession outright confesses]]'', Big Nep shamelessly calls herself "[[ChivalrousPervert an ally of cute girls everywhere]]" and bluntly asks Vert for [[SkinshipGrope permission to fondle her]] ([[BigBreastPride and gets it!]]), [[DownloadableContent Million Arthur]] just barely hides that she [[HaremSeeker wants a harem of girls]] as much as she wants to be King, openly admitting to enjoying the {{Stripperific}} nature of HDD, and Neptune and Uzume [[BirdsOfAFeather connect with each other as fellow]] [=CPU=]s on such a level that Big Nep has to cut their reunion short [[LampshadeHanging even as she remarks]] that she "[[YuriFan loves these lesbian-esque vibes]]" they've got going.

* AssetFlip: Neptunia is notoriously bad for this, with the developers reusing EVERYTHING they can constantly, with the enemies, attack animations, voice clips and sometimes even portions of the songs being reused liberally. This was understandable with the [[ObviousBeta first game]], but when a particular map is recognisable in practically every game, right down to where enemies spawn in the MOST RECENT game?
