A HudsonSoft game that could be considered as a spinoff is ''Hector [[AnnualTitle '87]]'', also known as ''Starship Hector''. It differs from all other ''Star Soldier'' games by being set on Earth and scrolling horizontally in its even-numbered stages, but was the first game to feature the 2-minute and 5-minute "Caravan" modes found in the later ''Star Soldier'' games.

* SpreadShot: At max power, your ship boasts the classic "four diagonal streams and two forward streams" pattern.

* SelfPlagiarism: The VirtualBoy game ''Vertical Force'' (also developed by Hudson Soft) is very similar to the original game despite not being nominally part of the series.

* ContentWarning: Presumably in order to deter ItsShortSoItSucks, the purchase page for ''Star Soldier R'' gives you a warning ''in red text'' that the game only features 2- and 5-minute modes.
