** If you snag a Green Bell powerup, your character is temporarily enlarged and made absolutely invincible. Although your weapons are disabled, you can simply fly into everything to inflict very heavy CollisionDamage.

You [[CollisionDamage crash into something]] or are [[BulletHell shot down]]. Since gathering all of those goodies to get back up to speed is a pain, the game takes ''some'' pity on you by having your exploding ship release a whole set of Bells upon death --which usually contain at least one Green Bell, a White one, or both, both of which are very destructive and confer either invincibility or the ability to absorb shots. You may also get a mercy Speed Up to help you catch up.

* DynamicDifficulty: Inherited from ''Gradius''. The better you're doing, and the more powerups you have equipped, the less mercy the game will present to you (at least until [[ComebackMechanic you're shot down]]). Then, when you get shot down and lose everything, the game ''instantly'' decreases the amounts of foes on-screen and may toss in a few freebies to give you a chance to recover.

* GiantWoman : The Parodius series ''loves'' this trope. There's Chichibinta Rika, who appears in most of the games, the giant mermaid Eliza from ''Gokujō Parodius'', Honey from ''Parodius Da!'', "Enormous Hikaru and Akane" from ''Jikkyō Oshaberi Parodius''...
** ''Sexy Parodius'' has no less than '''four'''. There's Medusa, Tanuko the Tanuki (whenever it transforms into its female form), Yuko, and the infamous final boss Kaori.

* MsFanservice: Well, let's see... First there's Eliza, the bikini-top wearing giant mermaid, there's Chichibinta Rika the giant showgirl, Yuko, a giant woman wearing only a blue sheet, a boss in the ''Sexy Parodius'' BossRush, and Kaori, a FinalBoss who's similar to Yuko. Not to mention the girls in the cutscenes (one of them shows Hikaru and Akane shampooing each other) in short, this game is ''full'' of scantily clad and even nude women.
