* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: At the start of stage Q, the terrorist adjutant appears right in front of you and destroys your car. And then subverted -- he didn't count on you escaping in a jet suit that has the exact same weaponry as your car.

* [[spoiler: CorruptPolitician: The terrorist leader was one...at least until ten years ago, when he was driven out of office. Cue him going insane with vengefulness and [[DisproportionateRetribution a desire to obliterate the city that dared to reject him]].]]

* EverythingsWorseWithWolves: The boss of the Tunnel stages is a pack of robot wolves that keep coming until you kill all 20+ of them or the timer runs out. Thankfully, they're one of the easier bosses as they take one hit to die and cannot fire at you.

* MultipleEndings: Like the ''{{Darius}}'' series by Taito, you get the option to choose between two routes at the end of a level. Depending on which final stage you play, you get a different ending.

* DeadlyWalls: Gets ''really annoying'' in the tunnel stages. And then there's stage O, a factory stage with them all over the place...

* DeflectorShields: You have five shield points per credit. Every time you get hit, you lose one point of shielding, and if you are hit without any shield, you die (read: GameOver). You only get one point of shielding every time you complete a level -- naturally, you don't want to take any chances.

* ShieldedCoreBoss: The Gyrohound helicopter bosses, such as the first stage boss (and the stage R FinalBoss). They are protected by a forcefield which can take some damage, once you destroy the field, you will be able to harm the helicopter. The catch? The helicopter puts up the forcefield again ''as soon as it takes a single hit'', OR if you take too long to hit it. The good news is that said helicopters are [[OneHitPointWonder three hit point wonders]].
* TacticalSuicideBoss: The missile truck. It would be otherwise invulnerable if not for the fact that it opens its weak spot to shoot out a MacrossMissileMassacre.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gF9aeHBnPf4 Demonstrated here]], in the first of a two part full PacifistRun. Take note of the text commentary; while most of it is in Japanese, the player still lets out a BigYes after some of the bosses self-destruct.
