* {{Prequel}}: ''1941'' obviously takes place before ''1943'', but the former was released after the latter.

** '''1943 Kai''' (Arcade, 1988)

to:

** '''1943 Kai''' (Arcade, 1988)1988): Known in the US as ''1943: The Battle of Midway Mark II''.



* UpdatedRerelease: 1943 Kai was this to the original 1943. It made the enemies harder, changed the boss order around, redid some of the player's weapons (including adding a laser beam weapon), and replaced the player's P-38 with a Boeing-Stearman Model 75 biplane.

* EnemyMine:
** Played with in ''19XX'' has the Japanese-made Shinden, which was never put into real battles at that time due to Japanese surrender in WWII. However, one of two examples were dismantled, shipped and restored by US.

* SpentShellsShower: The fifth boss of ''19XX'' uses this ''with a twist'' after he fires out his [[GatlingGood machinegun]]... He fires out the shells forward towards you, making you have to avoid (or just shoot) them!

* CoolTrain: Two bosses in ''19XX'' are actually this.
** ''Kalebert Armor'' is a slow-moving battle train that was overseeing operations at the heart of Africa.
** ''Sancho Pedro'' is a SuperPrototype train that was being developed in a secret factory in Spain. It can fire, among other things, a WaveMotionGun at the player.



* WaveMotionGun: ''19XX'' has both the fifth boss and the [[SequentialBoss final form]] of the FinalBoss use this on you. Especially dangerous is the final boss' one, as his spins and sucks the player towards it!

* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: In ''1943'', you are congratulated for winning the war after defeating the first 16 or so stages. And then you find out that all those bosses were a diversion from the ''real'' army.

[[JustForFun/IThoughtThatWas Do not confuse with]] ''[[VideoGame/{{Battlefield}} Battlefield 1942]]'', which is a whole different ballgame, ''Film/NineteenFortyOne'', ''{{Strikers 1945}}'' (despite that also being a shmup series), or (heaven forbid) ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour''. Also has nothing to do with the video game company Creator/{{Midway}}.[[note]]The "Midway" referred to here is Midway Island, which was part of the Pacific Theater of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.[[/note]]

** Prior to that, ''1943'' had overtones of [[StupidJetpackHitler Stupid Jetpack]] [[KatanasOfTheRisingSun Tojo]], with oversize giant bombers as bosses, bombers launching ''multiple'' Kamikaze [=MXY7=] rocket planes and whole squadrons of jet and rocket fighters that only existed as prototypes at the end of the war, all ostensibly in 1943. For that matter, the player's P-38 Lightning has overtones of [[OverlyLongGag Stupid Jetpack]] ''[[UsefulNotes/YanksWithTanks FDR]]'', with FrickinLaserBeams, apparently some kind of energy shield, the ability to summon ''actual'' lightning and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking being carrier-based despite the fact the real thing was a land-based Army Air Forces fighter]].
