* ''Raiden V'' ''RaidenV'' (a straight-to-console title for UsefulNotes/XboxOne)



* AdaptationalExpansion: ''V'' expands the details regarding the entire series, from the Cranassians to the Raiden and its mothership.
** The Cranassians are identified as "Crystals", which are pretty much [[StarfishAliens the crystals themselves.]]
** Research of Crystals were banned due to previous attempts that resulted in "contaminating" military machinery and transforming them in their alien armies. [[spoiler:It's due to illegal research that technology for the Raiden and the AirborneAircraftCarrier you see in beginnings exist at all.]]
** Given a more realistic feel by developing multiple different types of Raiden units, each made from different parts of the world. The default one you use is the Japanese "Azuma". This is one of the references to ''VideoGame/RaidenFighters'' spinoff.



* BigGood: Richard Maxwell in ''Raiden V''.



* DeadAllAlong: In ''V'', [[spoiler:the Cranassians have already gone extinct. What you're really facing are the [[BigBad large crystals]] that have seized control of their weapons for their invasion of Earth.]]
* DesignItYourselfEquipment: In ''V'', you can pick a ship, customizing it with wide array of weapons from Catch Plasma (multiple laser weapons that shoot on different directions each) to Moving Vulcan (lock-on adjustable spread guns) to Reflect Laser (a powerful laser that spreads into star-shaped formation and rotates).



* GaiasVengeance: In ''V'', according to Erishia's findings in one ending, [[spoiler:this is the real purpose of the [[BigBad Crystals]]. After annihilating the current inhabitants and rendering the planet inhospitable through pollution, they then clean out the pollution to make it habitable again.]]



** ''Raiden V'' can sometimes freeze in the middle of a stage and crash to the Xbox Home UI. Thankfully, [[http://raiden.mossjp.co.jp/raiden5/xboxone/news160316.html a patch has fixed this problem]].



* JerkassHasAPoint: Campbell points out the patheticness of the treaty that prohibits research of Cranassians Crystals. [[spoiler:If it weren't for SHIFT, the Raiden and your main aircraft carriers of the series would never have existed.]]



* MissionControl: Eshiria Portman in ''Raiden V''.



* OminousLatinChanting: Featured prominently in ''Raiden V'''s soundtrack, most notably the final stage theme, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX3vEQ-KQvs Crystal of Abyss]].



* PirateGirl: Valbarossa Hawkeye in ''Raiden V''.



** ''Raiden V'' is the series [-AS A {{ROLE PLAYING GAME}}-]!!!
*** To be exact, it is an Experimental {{Roguelike}} ShootEmUp.



* RPGElements: ''Raiden V'' implemented so many of the RPG elements, such as the MissionControl system, SkillScoresAndPerks, {{Roguelike}} missions, LifeMeter (shield) and such. It is basically a scrolling shooter RPG.



* SkewedPriorities: Maxwell cares more about his coffee than mission duty.



* StarfishAliens: As it turns out in ''V'', [[spoiler:The Cranassians ''are'' the [[BigBad the red Crystals.]]]]



* TraintopBattle: The last part of Stage 6 and the second part of Stage 7 in ''Raiden V''. More like Railroad Battles, though.
* TrueFinalBoss: ''Raiden DX'''s Expert course has one as shown [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-NTxIK-GYQ here]], if you can make it to the end in one credit. ''Raiden IV'' [[http://youtu.be/JR94VSgPb_0?t=9m54s has one at the end of the second loop.]] ''Raiden V'' has one in the form of Divine Rampart. To reach it, you must clear all the stages from start (any rank and difficulty settings are possible) and fully power up your Vulcan, Laser, and Plasma weapons before you confront the Stage 8 boss.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Raiden V'' double subverts this. Given a LifeMeter system, the player could survive some hits before it is crushed. However, you will lose all power ups when the meter clocks to zero, resulting in a game over. Depending on difficulty, the player could [[HarderThanHard play this straight]] or [[EasierThanEasy avert it]].

* HitboxDissonance: Later games in the series reduce the ship's hitbox to the size of most BulletHell hitboxes.
