* SpinOff: Most famously ''Original Generation'', ''Endless Frontier'' and ''VideoGame/AnotherCenturysEpisode'', but there are others such as ''Super {{Tokusatsu}} Wars'', ''Real Robot Regiment'', ''Super Hero Sakusen'', ''Legend of the {{Sunrise}} Heroes'', etc. The series itself is a MorePopularSpinoff of Compati Heroes, which combined Gundam, Franchise/KamenRider and Franchise/Ultraman.

The first ''Super Robot Wars'' was released on the Nintendo GameBoy, and featured mecha from ''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' (various series) and ''Manga/GetterRobo'' (referred to as the "Holy Trio" of the franchise and would star in nearly every game from then on). As the franchise grew, more series were added, as well as their characters. Each game would take the storylines of all the series and merge them into one (mostly) coherent whole. This often required some creative interpretation, particularly in the case of ''Gundam'', as characters, mecha and events that took place decades apart in the original stories will now occur within a matter of weeks of each other, if not at the same time.

* ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars1 Super Robot Wars]]'': The game that started it all. Released in April 1991 for the Nintendo GameBoy, it contains mecha only and no pilots; essentially has an ExcusePlot and isn't counted in any timeline. The game [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness plays nothing like its successors]], being more of a traditional TurnBasedTactics game where players capture enemy bases to clear the map. Unlike its successors, it features a multiplayer option, a feature not seen again until ''Super Robot Wars XO''. See [[http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/superrobotwars/superrobotwars.htm here for more details]]. The game has received a UsefulNotes/HighDefinition UpdatedRerelease as part of the [[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition deluxe edition]] of the ''Third Super Robot Wars Z: Jigoku-hen''.

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance'': First [=SRW=] for the Nintendo GameBoyAdvance released in September 2001, ''Advance'' deals with the invasion of the Shadow-Mirror. It is the only [=SRW=] to grant shields a separate HP bar. The original mecha are [[{{Expy}} picked up/upgraded from]] the original units of ''Super Robot Wars 64''. In 2008, ''Advance'' is given a VideoGameRemake for the [=PlayStation=] Portable called ''A Portable'' that's extremely shiny, but also NintendoHard.

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsW'': Debut [=SRW=] for the NintendoDS in March 2007, ''Getter Robo'' returns, but Universal Century ''Gundam'' (or any shows directed by Creator/YoshiyukiTomino, in general) remains absent. The story revolves around the mechanical Database and features no series dating before 1980. Notably, ''W'' is the first [=SRW=] to have a cast list made exclusively of shows licensed in North America (save perhaps the particular version of the Shin Getter ''W'' uses, although ''Getter Robo Armageddon'' was released in the United States and the cast here is classic ''Getter Robo G'', e.g. the group that got dubbed into ''[[{{Macekre}} Starvengers]]'') with at least one franchise (''Anime/GoLion''/''Anime/{{Voltron}}'') being incredibly obscure in Japan and seemingly only included to appeal to Americans. Despite this, the game has not been localized.

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsBX'': The second Nintendo 3DS [=SRW=] released on August 20th, 2015. Universal Century ''Gundam'' [[TheBusCameBack finally returns to a Nintendo-handheld SRW]] (though ''Getter Robo'' is still absent), yet like ''UX'', this marks the first time [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} Amuro Ray]] is excluded, despite the appearance of Universal Century.

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotSpirits'': Released in July 1998 for the Nintendo64, ''Spirits'' marked a departure from the usual TurnBasedStrategy formula in favor of a 3D FightingGame. Like ''The Lord of Elemental'', all mecha are rendered non-SuperDeformed. Despite its obscurity, this game was the debut of Levi Torah and her machine Judecca, and would be featured heavily in ''Alpha''.

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsNEO'': The only [=SRW=] installment for the Nintendo {{Wii}}, ''NEO'' was released in October 2009 and utilizes the same 3D scheme from ''GC''/''XO'', but uses a radial-based movement system instead of the usual grid-based, a first for the franchise. This is also the first [=SRW=] to be totally devoid of {{real robot}}s (''G Gundam'' is the ''Gundam'' representative of ''NEO'', and even then, only the God Gundam is available). Notably, ''NEO'' marks the first time a non-combat oriented mecha series is featured.

* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsDestiny'': The third [=SRW=] for the Game Boy Advance, ''Destiny'' was released in August 2003. The game introduces the "Chain Attack" system, where enemy units lined up in a row can be struck down simultaneously with designated melee attacks, and "Tsume Suparobo", a mini-game that test the player's strategic/tactical decisions. Infamously, [[GameBreakingBug horribly implemented armor coding]] {{nerf}}s {{super robot}}s, in general. The story involves the interdimensional Ruina and the Sealing of the Earth (non-related to the Sealing War of ''Alpha 2'').
