* SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity: ''Galaxy Showdown'' starts the player off at the intermission screen with a massive wad of cash and units whose levels are in the teens instead of the single digits, warning the player to expect the difficulty spike to be short and sharp.

* MultipleEndings: In ''IMPACT'', the Axis Shock cutscene has three different versions, depending on two units: [[spoiler:either you completely pass up the event to get the Rein Weissritter and Shin Getter Robo, got Shin Getter over Rein or got Rein over Shin Getter.]]

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Though in many ways a "transitional" game, ''Compact 2'' still has several traits typical of early [=SRWs=].
** Support Attack/Defense runs off of one stat (Support). If a unit can Support another unit, they will, with no option for the player to opt out of it.

to:

* DummiedOut: The [=WonderSwan=] games have unused data for the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Hi-Nu Gundam and Nightingale]] in [[WhatCouldHaveBeen what would have been]] their debuts in the series. They can be seen [[http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm30780804 here]].

* TheAce: Haran Banjou and Rom Stol
* AcePilot: Kyosuke is a "Steamroller" and Excellen's a "Sniper", though when fighting alongside him, she steers towards "Bushwacker."



* AwesomeButImpractical: ''Compact 2'' does have a "Full Upgrade Bonus" for upgrading all of a unit's stats to the max, but getting this bonus is much easier said than done thanks to each game's shorter-than-series-average length (no more than 31 stages) and general difficulty.



* BadassInDistress: Excellen gets kidnapped by the Einst.
* BadassNormal: While most of his other [[TrueCompanions companions]] are pilots with [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam powerful psychic abilities]] or pilots who pilot Super Robots (Kouji, Tetsuya, Duke, Getter Robo Team, Akira, Combattler V Team, Rom, Domon, the Zambot 3 Team, Banjou) a Kyousuke manages to kick-ass & win battles solely by his insane skills & crazy amount of battle experience behind the cockpit(He ''IS'' the only person that can pilot the Alt Eisen/Alt Eisen Riese.) The only thing thats abnormal about him is his insane luck giving him the capability to survive injuries that can kill any other man/woman.
* BeamSpam: Specialty of the Weiss and Rein Weiss



* BoisterousBruiser: Excellen's a rare female protagonist example, though she slightly overlaps this with...



* CoolBigSis: Excellen



* CombiningMecha: Manga/GetterRobo, Anime/{{Dancougar}}, Anime/{{Dangaioh}} and Anime/CombattlerV
** [[Anime/NinjaSenshiTobikage Tobikage]] also combines with one of the three Mecha from its series when their Will is high enough
* DeadpanSnarker: [[Anime/{{Martian Successor Nadesico}} Ruri Hoshino]] (Impact only)



* DifficultySpike: The [=WonderSwan=] version of ''Cosmoquake's'' last stage is one of the more infamous examples in the series, combining EliteMooks, two sets of reinforcements, a huge map, and a time limit into a scenario that can very quickly be made unwinnable.



* FixFic: [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket Bernie Wiseman]] (as a result of {{retcon}}ning his death in ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0080WarInThePocket Gundam 0080]]''), [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam Norris Packard]], [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Master Asia]], [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Schwarz Bruder]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Puru and Puru 2]] get to live
* FlashStep: F91 Gundam Formula 91



* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Kyosuke's Alteisen is a massively armored mech whose main weapons are a stake driver and a pair of humongous claymores. By comparison, Excellen's Weissritter is a speedy, lightly-armored machine armed with a large rifle.



* HalfHumanHybrid: [[spoiler:Excellen]]
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl, with a mix of ThePollyanna: Excellen loves her alcohol, but she doesn't need it to become the latter: it's part of her nature, because her sunny disposition is what really cheers the cast up during the downer moments.



* ImprobableWeaponUser: Kyosuke's Alt Eisen uses a pile bunker and mecha-sized titanium ball bearings as weapons. When it's upgraded to the Riese, it can't even move with the extra armor: who in the right mind would ''want'' to use this machine?? Fortunately, he's the only one who can ever use it and factor in his ungodly luck, here's a true example of a weapon not fit for anyone ''but'' him



* KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter: In a setting where most Humongous Mecha are powered by AppliedPhlebotinum, tinkered by {{Cosmic Horror}}s, shoot FrickinLaserBeams and [[SphereOfDestruction Spheres Of Destruction]] and other unworldly powers, the RealRobot Alt Eisen uses solely solid-based weapons. Unfortunately, it's an AwesomeButImpractical unit, due to its specifications and difficulty in handling in-story. However, it functions on RuleOfCool, due to its pilot having been BornLucky and in his hands, is able to take it to a point where it rivals {{Super Robot}}s in damage capabilities.

Added DiffLines:

* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: Impact is kinda infamous for how poorly optimized the coding in the game is, leading to everything taking forever to happen. The argument of the game being slow has less to do with the game actually being slow-paced and more that all of the loading makes everything take longer than it should.

* {{Badass}}: Like their ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'' counterparts, Kyosuke, Excellen and Alfimi are certified {{badass}}es in their own way. [[BadassArmy Every playable character in this game]] also counts.
** BadassInDistress: Excellen gets kidnapped by the Einst.
** BadassNormal: While most of his other [[TrueCompanions companions]] are pilots with [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam powerful psychic abilities]] or pilots who pilot Super Robots (Kouji, Tetsuya, Duke, Getter Robo Team, Akira, Combattler V Team, Rom, Domon, the Zambot 3 Team, Banjou) a Kyousuke manages to kick-ass & win battles solely by his insane skills & crazy amount of battle experience behind the cockpit(He ''IS'' the only person that can pilot the Alt Eisen/Alt Eisen Riese.)

The second entry of the Wonderswan series of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', the '''''Super Robot Wars Compact 2''''' story was ''so big'' it had to be separated into three parts: ''Earth Crisis'', ''Cosmoquake'' and ''Galaxy Showdown''. The story deals with the battle between Earth's forces and the extraterrestrial Einst, who seek to restart the world they deem too corrupted. The key to Einst's success or defeat lies within two cadets in the Earth Federation's forces, serving as the game's OriginalGeneration.

* OverratedAndUnderleveled: In the Wonderswan games, Alt Eisen plays up the AwesomeButImpractical angle a bit ''too'' well; bad mobility, unimpressive armor, and its strongest weapon "Square Claymore" is an awkward range 1-2 non-post-movement attack (and the Spirit Command to make every weapon hadn't been invented yet). Forget to tinker with your Wonderswan's nickname, and you'll also be greeted with a Kyousuke bearing ''abysmal'' attack stats and accuracy/evasion on the level of third-rate Mobile Suit pilots.
