* BlackAndWhiteMorality: Good Shinobi vs. Evil Shinobi, though it's averted as ninjas on both sides are sympathetic. [[spoiler: Invoked by the higher ups, as the intentional separation is there to draw out [[BiggerBad Shin]].]]



* BolivianArmyEnding: The Crimson Squad and Rin's Story endings in ''Shinovi Versus''.

** Played completely straight in the anime however. While the games have him strong and professional enough to easily thwart his girls' attempts at taking revenge on him, the anime special has him go out of the way to humiliate Asuka and Homura to the point that he can't save himself.



* DownloadableContent: With the exception of Portait of Girls and Burst, the games offer DLC content ranging from clothes to different accessories to even bonus stories.

** The greatest example in the series is Shin, [[spoiler: responsible for creating all the yoma, and in fact the only reason there's a good vs evil conflict in the first place: To create enough bloodshed to draw him out]].



** ''Shinovi Versus'' introduces different flavors: [[GiantMook Bear mooks]] that don't flinch with normal attacks, [[LightningBruiser Samurai]] that do the same but with lower defense, added speed and strength, Badgers and Foxes that attack with claws and Rats that ferry supplies.



* ForeverWar: Between the good/light shinobi and the evil/dark shinobi.

* ForeverWar: Between the good/light shinobi and the evil/dark shinobi. It seems pointless and [[spoiler: in a way, it's purposefully so. Shinovi Versus reveals the war is there to lure out the progenitor of all disasters and Yoma, Shin, who only comes out once enough blood has been shed.]]



* InvisibleToNormals: One ninja technique is invoking a barrier to allow fighting while invisible to all but other ninjas. This is how the girls can fight in the open in areas like shops without drawing attention.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: ''New Wave'', being a card game, introduces several new girls and schools to the world of ''Senran Kagura'' (''fifty new girls in total''), [[http://senrankagura.marv.jp/character.php# bloating out the cast list significantly]].

** This also applies to the Yoma, at least in the ''Versus'' continuity. [[spoiler:In Rin's backstory, a ''single'' Yoma effortlessly slaughtered a Kagura and her entire elite squad, and would have killed Rin as well if not for Miyabi's father. By contrast, the combined forces of all four teams are able to make quick work of an entire army of Yoma in the Crimson Squad's ending.]]

***''Deep Crimson'' plays with the trope since introduces lower classes of Yoma to be used as regular mooks but also allows the girls to take down giant Yoma (of the same class that nearly killed Rin in the past) on their own. And that is without counting Daidouji who takes on a massive army of Yoma by ''herself''

* ThirdOptionAdaptation: According to ''Estival'', the canon ending to ''Shinovi'' was primarily the Gessen ending with several elements from the other three paths added in, including [[spoiler:Ryobi and Ryona's assassination plot, TheReveal about Kagura and Shin, Rin leaving Hebijo and becoming an independent Shinobi, Dogen's return and brainwashing plot, and the four teams genuinely befriending one another.]]

* NoCanonForTheWicked: Averted. Its generally accepted that the Crimson Squad's (who ''are'' Evil Shinobi) ending is the "canon" ending for ''Shinovi Versus'', since its the only ending where all four factions genuinely befriend one another (thus making ''Bon Apetite'' and ''Estival'' make more sense) and [[spoiler:the only ending where Dogen is exposed and his plains are foiled]].

* NoCanonForTheWicked: Averted. Its generally accepted that Zigzagged. While the original intent was for the Crimson Squad's (who ''are'' Evil Shinobi) ending is to be the "canon" ending for ''Shinovi Versus'', since its Versus''. The sheer popularity of Yumi and the only general disinterest Japan had for ''Deep Crimson'' made it Gessen's ending where all four factions genuinely befriend the canon one another (thus making ''Bon Apetite'' and ''Estival'' make more sense) and [[spoiler:the only ending where Dogen is exposed and his plains are foiled]]. from which ''Estival Versus'' picks up. However, so the development present in the other routes doesn't go to waste, the writers cherry-picked elements from them to complement the Gessen route.

* WhamEpisode: The Crimson Squad's story in ''Shinovi Versus'' reveals that [[spoiler:not only did Dogen survive the events of ''Burst'', but the reason the New Hebijo girls are such massive assholes is because he brainwashed them to go into homicidal rage whenever they see someone from the other teams (Except Miyabi. He's blackmailing her).]]

* {{Kiai}}: Every girl shouts ''CHESTO!'' a lot when finishing combos, even the quieter and more reserved ones. Possibly referring to [[BuxomIsBetter a certain other chest]].



* KnowWhenToFoldEm: [[spoiler:Ikaruga's big brother eventually give up on taking the mantle of the ninja clan, instead focusing on what he's good at: being a shrewd businessman. This is after Ikaruga makes it clear that he's outclassed and Hanzo gives him some sobering small talks.]]

* LimitBreak: The Hidden Ninpos/Secret Ninja Arts. They're special attacks that consume your Ninja Scrolls but can clear out multiple enemies at once and deal massive damage to bosses (with the added bonus of instantly stripping the bosses of their clothing). Each girl has three different Ninpos: a Level 1 Ninpo (1 scroll), a Level 2 Ninpo (2 scrolls), and a Level 3/Ultimate Ninpo (3 or more scrolls with a special condition, depending on the game). In ''Burst'' and ''Deep Crimson'', there's even an additional aerial Ninpo that can be performed in mid-air.
