* 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.

* 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.]]



* 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]].

* OncePerEpisode: The [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory GP-02A Physalis]] [[GrandTheftPrototype getting hijacked]] and needed to be taken back; this stops with ''Alpha 3''.

* PurposefullyOverpowered: Certain late-game mecha, notably the SRX in ''Alpha''. Three sets of Spirit Commands ([[spoiler:later four, with the addition of Mai]]), a powerful set of weapons, even by SuperRobot standards, and a CombinationAttack accessible in the final scenario that can potentially OneHitKill the FinalBoss.

* BreakTheCutie: Happens to ''plenty'' of people in the licensed properties - the ''Evangelion'' pilots and [[SpaceRunawayIdeon the crew of the Solo Ship]] perhaps being the standouts. A lot of the originals don't catch a break, either.
