* JumpScare: Not something you'd expect from a ''turn-based strategy game'', but this is present in ''Alpha 3''. The strongest attack of [[spoiler:Keisar Ephes]], [[spoiler:"[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast End of the Galaxy]]"]], has an extremely long animation that involves [[spoiler:hordes of wraiths, visions of [[EarthShatteringKaboom planets blowing up]], Earth being chopped in half, and Keisar Ephes [[AtopAMountainOfCorpses standing atop the destroyed machines of the entire Alpha Numbers]]]]. And just when you think it's over, the dynamic kill animation shows [[spoiler:the unfortunate victim of the attack being consumed by hundreds of wraiths.]]

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Of course, there are the usual suspects from various series, plus some extras - for example, [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Katejina Loos]] is now this, while in the original she was simply crazy (and evil).

** In one route split for ''Alpha 3'', the Alpha Numbers fight against [[spoiler:[[Anime/{{Dancougar}} Emperor Muge Zorbados and his three generals]]]]. Once they're defeated, [[spoiler:Muge ''revives'' [[Anime/GreatMazinger The Emperor of Darkness]], [[Anime/GetterRobo Emperor Gore]], [[Anime/KotetsuJeeg Emperor Ryuuma]], [[Anime/GreatMazinger the Grand Marshall of Hell]] and [[Anime/{{Gaiking}} Emperor Darius]]]]. [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Ugh...]]

* DummiedOut: The SRX, [=RyuKoOh=]/[=KoRyuOh=], [[Anime/GetterRobo Texas Mack]] and a few other units are in the files of ''Alpha Gaiden'', and are usable if players cheat in the game.

** Mazinkaiser in ''Alpha Gaiden'' is far more powerful than the rest of the team, including the [[Anime/GetterRobo Shin Getter Robo]], thanks to high {{Hit Point}}s, EN, good mobility (comparable to some Gundams) and armor rating, alongside a great set of weapons, augumented with the "Mazinpower" unit ability[[note]]At 130 Will, increase damage dealt by 25%[[/note]] and can use its attacks right off the bat[[note]]To put in perspective, Shin Getter requires 140 Will to use the "Stone Sunshine" attack; Mazinkaiser has no Will requirements for "[[ChestBlaster Fire Blaster]]". By the time the Shin Getter hits 140, the Mazinkaiser will have dealt more damage than the former[[/note]]. Of course, this being ''[[NintendoHard Alpha Gaiden]]'', it's actually a godsend rather than it ruining the game.

* VillainousValor: A few examples; besides the obvious suspects among NobleDemon opponents and redeemable villains, a number of stalwartly evil characters, including the Great General of Darkness, [[Anime/GetterRobo General Bat]] and Queen Himika deliberately sacrifice themselves to ensure a victory for their side.

* InsaneTrollLogic: [[spoiler:Char's rationalization for dropping Axis onto Earth]] was pretty insane [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack in the source material]], but in ''Alpha 2'', the plan is repeated with practically no changes in a world where humanity is simultaneously hammered by joint invasion forces of three alien worlds, the Mycene Empire ([[spoiler:which, in fact, immediately takes advantage of the havoc caused by Char]]) and a number of other [[ApocalypseHow extinction-level threats]]. This is left for players to wonder how destroying most of human civilization is going to help them survive, considering these circumstances.

* TheProphecy: In ''Alpha 2'', the [[Anime/KotetsuJeeg Bronze Bell]] foretells of a malevolent force that will unify the subterranean forces of the Dinosaur Empire, Yamatai Kingdom, and Mycene Empire. The Emperor of Darkness appears to fit the bill and goes on to be one of the final bosses in the game until ''Alpha 3'' reveals everyone jumped to conclusions and the prophecy actually spoke of Emperor Ryuuma, instead.

Added DiffLines:

* IsometricProjection: ''Alpha'' is the first SRW to use isometric-view maps (as opposed to top-down view of the earlier (and some modern handheld) games), complete with full-body, full-color [[SuperDeformed super-deformed]] map sprites instead of color-coded head-only map icons. It has been used in the following Alpha sequels and in most modern SRW titles.

** With the exception of the ones who were KilledOffForReal in ''Alpha'', every end-series boss from all of Universal Century ''Gundam'' ([[AndZoidberg and Kelly]]) show up to assist [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char Aznable]] and help him [[ColonyDrop drop Axis onto Earth]] in ''Alpha 2''. [[spoiler:If [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Haman Karn]] is convinced to against Char, the game makes up for this by making players fight the [[Anime/BrainPowerd Reclaimers]] before Char]].
