* 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.

Arguably one of the more famous [=SRW=] entries, despite the obscure handheld system it started out on. It was later [[VideoGameRemake remade]] using the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden]]'' engine as '''''Super Robot Wars Impact''''', the series' first entry on the Sony PlayStation2, with all three games compiled onto one disc. In addition to introducing a new original character named Einst Alfimi, ''Impact'' adds two new series to the game: ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' and ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico''. Like the preceding ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact'', ''Compact 2'' and ''Impact'' features the "Free Route System": rather than following a linear plot, the games allow the player to choose the order to play certain scenarios in. This may affect the storyline or give the player an opportunity to unlock [[SecretCharacter hidden units and/or characters]].

* OldSaveBonus: The ''Compact 2'' games are mostly self-contained; players use the UsefulNotes/WonderSwan's internal memory to carry event flags and other data between the games in the trilogy. This is not the case for ''Impact'', which is one continuous game.

* ATasteOfPower: ''Galaxy Showdown'' lets the player use both the Earth and Space teams for a few missions before pulling a LetsSplitUpGang.

Enabling its Beam Rifle to be used after moving changes it from a generic Gundam unit to one of the most mobile attackers in the game. Especially notable as the other Mobile Suits were hit hard by the double-movement nerf.

* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: Particularly egregious in ''Galaxy Showdown'', where the headcount limit is actually ''lower'' than the previous games at many points. For reference, the final stage of ''Earth Crisis'' has [[spoiler:[[Anime/{{Dancougar}} Gandor]] + 15]], while Stage 30 of ''Galaxy Showdown'', [[spoiler:the Neue Regisseur stage]], has [[spoiler:[[Anime/NinjaSenshiTobikage Elshank]], Kyosuke, Excellen + 8]].

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.

Arguably one of the more famous [=SRW=] entries, despite the obscure handheld system it started out on. It was later [[VideoGameRemake remade]] using the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Gaiden'' engine as ''Super Robot Wars Impact'', the series' first entry on the Sony PlayStation2, with all three games compiled onto one disc.
