** Ryusei and Rai's relationship was ''way'' more antagonistic in this game. At one point Ryusei goes around telling the other members of the crew that Rai is gay; when Rai finds out, he responds by beating the shit out of Ryusei, which instantly convinces everyone that he's straight. Try imagining THAT happening in ''Original Generation''.

''Shin Super Robot Wars'' is the first ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' title released on the SonyPlayStation. In a similar vein to ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden Masou Kishin: The Lord of Elemental]]'', the game eschews the SuperDeformed formula from previous [=SRWs=] and renders the HumongousMecha into full-sized. Although ''Shin'' is largely forgotten, the protagonists and their CombiningMecha "SRX" ('''S'''uper '''R'''obot Type-'''X'''), not to mention their antagonists, the Balmar Empire, would be a precursor to the overarching storyline present in the later ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' series.

* BadassNormal: Discussed between [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Raidiese F. Branstein]] and [[CharsCounterattack Gyunei Guss]]. Gyunei asks Rai if he's a "Fortified Human", which Rai knows nothing about. He then demands to know how Rai [[TheStoic can be so calm when his life is on the line in this battle]], and Rai answers that calmness is only natural for a skilled pilot, the implication that Gyunei is afraid of fighting.

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: When the [[spoiler: [[MobileFighterGGundam Devil Gundam]]]] returns as the TrueFinalBoss, it becomes much stronger even though it requires [[spoiler: an unwilling female pilot in order to reach its full strength]].

* AttackDrones: [[MobileSuitGundam Funnels and fin funnels]]. The R-3 Powered's Strike Shields are notable in that they are entirely unarmed, with no guns or blades to speak of. They're just giant blunt bits of metal that Aya psychically smashes into enemy units.

* CaptainErsatz: Each of the "R-Units" of the SRX are one to a [[{{Gundam}} Universal Century mobile suit]] - R-1 to the ZetaGundam, R-2 Powered to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Guncannon]] and R-3 to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory GP-03 Dendrobium Stamen]], especially when you compare the R-3 Powered to the Dendrobium Orchis. Additionally, the R-Units and the SRX are done by famed ''{{Gundam}}'' mechanical designer Hajime Katoki.

** During a Space Route scenario, Kouji and [[MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Astonaige Medoz]] are both a tad baffled how to use whatever the new gadget on the Mazinger Z is. It claims to be some type of energy charger, yet it doesn't have any visible controls. Astonaige figures it will probably just..."do whatever it does" when the time comes.

* MutuallyExclusivePartyMembers: In Scenario 28 of the Earth Route, Domon is willing to settle the score with [[MobileFighterGGundam Allenby Beardsley]], and not just as a game, but [[MobileFighterGGundam Rain Mikamura]] isn't buying it and storms off. Domon can either follow Allenby or Rain - the former is the first step towards recruiting Allenby, while the latter is a trigger for getting Rain in the [[MobileFighterGGundam Rising Gundam]].

* PsychicPowers: As usual, ''Shin'' has "[[{{Gundam}} Newtypes]]", but while Aya is the one who telekinetically combines the SRX. After a Space Route scenario, the party is impressed at the SRX's abilities, but Amuro notes that Aya is looking a bit green in the gills from all the power she has to expend to keep the SRX together. Hayato agrees to give them a day off. Aya confesses to Amuro later that she is in fact an "Esper", apologizing for misleading him earlier. She's not entirely thrilled with her powers, which Amuro can relate.

* ReverseMole: [[MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Nanai Miguel]] is more than a little uneasy about the alliance with the Ze Balmary Empire, and Char admits one mistake and all of mankind could become the Balmarians' playthings. He's willing to take that risk, given it will take time to assimilate Balmarian tech, but he needs mankind to sit still until then. Nanai is willing to go along with this so long as Char loves her and helps keep construction of the Angel Halo on schedule.
