Kawamoto. You can tell because the mad scientist who invented the Meganintes has Spike's hair.

* ArmCannon: The Meganites can be upgraded to have weapons imbedded in their arms, including a flamethrower for Vavel, a lightning gun for Lagioule, and missles for Glangg.


Added DiffLines:

* HiddenWeapons: The Meganites have a foldable weapon in each hand. The right hand is powers up melee but uses up energy with every hit, while the left hand powers up range but has limited ammo.
** Vavel has [[ThisIsADrill a drill]] in his right hand and [[FireBreathingWeapon a flame thrower]] in his left. Surprisingly an aversion of VideoGameFlamethrowersSuck once you destroy the enemies' defenses. Fairly good range, decent damage up close (which is Vavel's specialty anyway) and ut can even become a fire extinguisher in certain stages.
** Laguiole has [[ShockAndAwe a lightning gun and shock prods in the appropriate hands]]. They do a good job of buffing up Laguiole's damage, though the lightning does go out of hand and sometimes hits surrounding buildings.
** Gllang has a [[MacrossMissileMassacre spread bomb launcher]] in his left hand and [[DropTheHammer a hammer]] in his right. The spread bomb launcher does go out of control sometimes, but the hammer reliably buffs up Gllang's already ludicrous damage.

* HeKnowsAboutTimedHits: The characters explain Meganite controls using the PS2 interface, and it's surprisingly justified because when you see the Meganite controller in the first level, it looks exactly like a PS2 controller.

* SpiritualSuccessor: To Human's ''[[http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps/575595-remote-control-dandy Romote Control Dandy]]'' on PS1. Additionally, an actual sequel also was made to that game, by the same company that made this game.

Added DiffLines:

* NegativeSpaceWedgie: Nectar Radiance is a form of radiation that permeates all of space. It is lethal to all organic life, making space travel impossible. Humanity is spared thanks to the Earth's atmosphere blocking the Radiance. [[spoiler:Volgara can travel through it unscathed, due to being completely mechanical.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RoboticReveal: [[spoiler:When a human-sized robot appears in Senjo, Tsukioka thinks they can communicate with them, believing them to be the Volgara's pilot. They soon learn that it's just a scouting droid. The Volgara aren't piloted at all: they are purely MechanicalLifeforms.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseShips: The JMSDF ''Kouga'' is referred to as the first of a new line of ship, the Fleugel-class cruiser. There are no JMSDF vessels in the cruiser classification. Instead, ''Kouga'' looks nearly identical to the real-life Atago-class destroyer[[note]]In fairness, the Atago-class actually surpasses the displacement of the standard USN cruiser, the Ticonderoga class[[/note]], if with an artificially high hull number.

* [[AnAdventurerIsYou A Meganite Is You]]: The Three Meganites have different focuses and stats.
** Vavel is your regular JackOfAllStats SuperRobot. It has balanced stats, but its specialty is energized punches and having a SuperMode.
** Laguiole is a FragileSpeedster, with weak punches and low armor, but is incredibly fast especially with its Jet Mode. With the ability to fly above and bypass buildings, it has the potential for saving more of the city.
** Gllang is a MightyGlacier, with slow walking speed, strong punches and defense and being a literal WalkingArmory of MoreDakka. It compensates a bit with its Tank Mode.



* AssKickingPose: Your most powerful moves need you to do a Grand Charge, which is basically posing. In a HandWave that makes this trope almost literal, Doctor Wiltz says that the posing is REQUIRED to charge up.



** Goes even farther beyond THAT. [[spoiler: Mechanical evolution is the only way any species can reach past the Nectar Barrier. Meganites are humanity's ticket to the rest of space.]]



* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Genesis Mode, which increases Vavels power even more than Volcanic Mode already does. [[spoiler: It was made to cull half of humanity to ensure its survival to the year 3000]].



* GoingForTheBigScoop: Mika Banhara goes to near suicidal lengths to get the story on the Volgara. One can appreciate her zeal, but is it ''really'' that important to the story to have the news van running around underfoot?

to:

* GoingForTheBigScoop: Mika Banhara goes to near suicidal lengths is a zig-azgging example. She's perfectly fine with going on a helicopter to get up-close (Read: ridiculously lethal) footage from giant mecha battles, but with the story on the Volgara. One can appreciate her zeal, but is it ''really'' expectation that important she'll get promoted later on. When she's called to do it again, this time with a NEWS VAN, she realizes how insane it is but does it anyway because it's her job.
* HeKnowsAboutTimedHits: The characters explain Meganite controls using
the story to have PS2 interface, and it's surprisingly justified because when you see the news van running around underfoot?Meganite controller in the first level, it looks exactly like a PS2 controller.



* ThisIsADrill: Vavel's Drill Gear.



* MightyGlacier: Gllang is big and slow, but hits the hardest of all the Meganites.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler: Genesis Mode, which was meant to eliminate half of humanity to ensure its survival to the year three thousand. Averted later on when the protagonist rewrites its programming.]]

* FragileSpeedster: Laguiole moves the fastest of the bots, hit faster, and jumps highest, but is the weakest physically.

* ShoutOut: The entire game is one to all the retro HumongousMecha anime out there. Yui bases her wadrobe on the heroines of those shows. And Vavel has a RocketPunch and a finishing attack awfully similar to MazingerZ's Breast Fire. Also, fighting Dantarion in Tokyo is a clear ShoutOut to ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}''.
