* ThemeMusicPowerUp: Like most [=SRWs=], FinalBoss battles will be accompanied by a song after in-game events. However, the ''Second Original Generation'' takes this further by including actual Creator/JAMProject-related theme songs to the respective game rather than the instrumental cover version. Players will hear the full tune of "Victory" from ''MX'', "Skill" from ''Alpha 2'' and ''Wings of Legend'' for the ''Second Original Generation''. Note this is the second time in franchise history players are given a full vocal rendition of a song - the first belongs to "[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Do You Remember Love?]]" from the UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast version of ''Alpha''.

* UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny: Long since ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment'' showcased Al-Van Lunks and his Raftclans' Orgonite Sword to be a dead-ringer to [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Sanger Zonvolt's Colossal Blade/Zankantou]] and the fandom has been clamoring that these two badass {{BFS}}-wielding pilots duke it out ever since.

* GagBoobs: Much has been made of the girls' chest sizes, of which Seolla's becomes a PlotPoint [[InsultedAwake in order to break her brainwashing]], but ''Endless Frontier'' is probably king (or, "queen", perhaps?) of this trope and {{Lampshading}} thereof, ''so'' much that [[Website/FourChan /m/]] has long called it "Oppai Saga: Endless Tits" or any of a dozen such variations.

''Moon Dwellers'' usually downplay this; Akemi, Sally, Calvina and the Fury girls have big knockers that bounce, but for the most part, there was no boob-joke and they're all taken seriously as characters... but Aschen will still point out the abundance of big boobs in the team.

Thus was born ''Super Robot Wars Original Generation'', released for the GameBoyAdvance. Featuring a couple dozen original pilots created from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' and prior (but strangely no [[Characters/MasouKishin Masou Kishin entries aside from Masaki Andoh, Lune Zoldark and Shu Shirakawa]], although that's all the first ''Alpha'' title ever offered), its plot involves the Divine Crusaders War from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars2'' and the initial stages of the Balmar War in ''Alpha'', but without all those other distractions provided by the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Angels]], [[Anime/{{Macross}} Zentraedi]], [[Anime/GunBuster Uchuu Kaijuu/STMC]], and so forth (the United Colony Corps plays the role of the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Principality of Zeon]]). But wait, you ask: "didn't ''Alpha'' have all sorts of corrupt politicians and enemy pilots to impede our heroes Banpresto hasn't made {{expy}}s of yet?" Well, yes, and they exist ''now'' - a good third or so of the ''Original Generation'' cast is comprised of these sorts of people (and a couple of the heroes, even) created exclusively for these games.

* AbsentAliens: [[spoiler:All life originated on Earth, even the [[CosmicHorror Einst]]]], which also inverts the AncientAstronauts trope.
* ArtEvolution: [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v629/Kuruni/MS-Story/Vault-SRW/rtx-008r.jpg This]] is the Huckebein in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4''; compare it to [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v629/Kuruni/MS-Story/Vault-SRW/rtx-008.jpg the current version]].
* TheAce: Aside from characters given a notification for achieving a certain amount of kills becoming "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin aces]]", characters from the elite Aggressors unit have been in combat longer than the rest of the cast. Moreover, in-universe, they're the ones who ''created'' mecha combat.
* AnotherSideAnotherStory: Any release in the ''OG Saga'' line, since their intent is to expand on the happenings of other characters in other settings. ''Dark Prison'' chronicles Shu and his party's activities during the main storyline for the ''Second Original Generation''. One example is Selena, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Albharda]] and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Yong Gelbana]] [[spoiler:witnessing one of the energy beams fired by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Irui Gan Eden]] towards the moon, which occurs just as the FinalBoss scenario is underway in the ''Second Original Generation''. The players see the blast literally shattering a part of the moon but Elma mentions that the beam "[[{{Foreshadowing}} did not hit any]] [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment man-made structures on the moon.]]"]].
* AttackPatternAlpha: The new mechanic "Maximum Break" in the ''Second Original Generation'' allows a pilot with the "Leadership" pilot skill to initiate an attack with three allied characters, even when none of them have the "Support Attack" pilot skill. It is the ''Original Generation'' close-equivalent to the TRI-Battle System in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ''; long story short, MoreDakka ensues.
* {{Badass}}: Most characters, heroic or villanous, adhere to this. Some greatly personify it, whereas one of them is Banpresto's walking embodiment of it. To wit:
** BadassArmy: The Earth Federation Army, the (Neo) Divine Crusaders, the United Colony Corps, the Shadow-Mirror, the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Shura]] and the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Gaia Sabers]].
** BadassCrew: The ''Steel Dragon Battle Group'', the protagonists' official team, facing off against aliens, terrorists and cosmic horrors, all of them in giant mechas, and completely stomping them flat [[DefeatMeansFriendship or possibly recruiting them to the cause]]. To a smaller extent, the individual ATX Team, SRX Team, Octo Squad, Aggressors, and the ''Dark Prison'' party members.
* BeachEpisode: Present in the games for no reason other than {{Fanservice}}; the ending credits of ''The Inspector'' is one itself. Exemplified in the special edition of ''The Moon Dwellers'' with a dedicated drama CD called "The Beach Dwellers", with six of the girls going on a beach vacation.
* BiggerBad: While this notion was played with in previous games, the events leading up to the ''Second Original Generation'' is manipulated by [[spoiler: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Euzeth Gozzo]], who is using his clones in the multiverse to revive himself. He remembers everything that has happened in the different universes he was in, too]].
* BiggerBad [[BigBadEnsemble Ensemble]]: As of ''Second Original Generation'', there are at least three major threats (that we know of) that have either been simply glimpsed by the heroes or just delayed in their objectives:
** [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Dark]] [[MultiversalConqueror Brain]]: Was forced back into whatever dimension he was hiding in, but he's by no means beaten, and is still seeking the 'Twelve Keys'. And his remnants fight in his stead for ''Moon Dwellers''.
** [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Perfectio]] [[CosmicHorror The King of Ruin]]: Was sealed out of the OG Dimension thanks to [[spoiler: Chris's and Ventus's HeroicSacrifice,]] but it's unknown if they can hold him permanently. And given his [[EldritchAbomination nature]], killing him outright may be [[CompleteImmortality impossible.]]
** The [[SuperRobotWarsAlpha Balmar]] [[TheEmpire Empire]]: Haven't been seen in force since ''OG1'', but their influence has still been felt with [[spoiler: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Euzeth Gozzo]] being the BiggerBad / TrueFinalBoss]] of ''Second OG'', and the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Zuvorg Alliance]] being extremely wary of them. And with the Balmar, there is of course their leader, [[GodOfEvil Kaiser Ephes]] to worry about as well.
* BittersweetEnding: The ''Second Original Generation'' ends with [[spoiler:Irui Gan Eden surviving the destruction of the Nashim Gan Eden, while [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kukuru]] and the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Garden of Baral]] are destroyed, yet [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Son Ganlong]] implies he will return. [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Ventus]] and the "Chris" personality of Cliana are sealed away with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Perfectio]], [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Glacies]] and Ariel have a limited lifespan remaining and Euzeth drops enough ominious bits that the worst has yet to come (and indeed. Following the Alpha timeline, next in line would be Keisar Ephes)]]. The upside is [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Mekibos]] has secured an alliance between humanity and the Zuvorg, which may or may not have consequences in regards to the Ze Balmary Empire, whom the Zuvorg are just as wary of. The Cross Gate left intact acts as a WildCard: it may bring more extraterrestrials/interdimensional travellers looking to conquer Earth, yet it opens the possibility for the Shura, who have previously left in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' on a good note, to return and reinforce the Earthlings. Or possibly, the Elemental Lords of La Gias, who also departed to La Gias to take care of its inner business after Euzzeth has been taken care of (miracle might be required here since the last we see them in ''Coffin of the End'', [[TheMagicGoesAway the Elemental Spirits have left]])]].
* BoringButPractical: Certain equippable weapons, such as the M920 Machine Guns, are quite powerful, have decent range and are usable post-movement with a ton of ammo, cheap to upgrade, and damage isn't degraded on certain terrain.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: This tends to recur with disturbing frequency throughout the span of the storyline. Among those who went through brainwashing of some manner at some point are [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Tempest Hawker, Shine Hausen, Tenzan Nakajima]] (though he was already [[AxCrazy pretty crazy to begin with]]), Kusuha, Tenzan ''again'', and [[spoiler: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Levi Tolar]]]] in the first game, while [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Seolla Schweizer]], [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Ouka Nagisa]], and Excellen get hit with this in the sequel. ''Original Generations'' retools a plotline regarding [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ingram Prisken]]]] to make it so that ''he'' was suffering from this to an extent. For ''Original Generation Gaiden'', [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia Loveless]], [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Shouko Azuma]], and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Fernando Albark]] get to "join in on the fun". The ''Second Original Generation'' tones this down, as [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Brooklyn "Bullet" Luckfield]] doesn't get his brainwashing from ''Alpha 2''; it goes to the [=KoOhKi=], instead. Only Touma per his ''Alpha 3'' scenario (via the LIOH System in the [=RaiOh=]) is hit with this. If you count the ''OG Saga'' integration of the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden Masou Kishin]]'' series, this trend was chronologically started by [[Characters/MasouKishin Tytti Noorbuck]] (hypnotized by her ArchEnemy and made to fight her boyfriend, her recovering from it was used by the former to kill the latter.)
* BrickJoke: In ''Alpha 2'', [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Robert H. Ohmiya]] comments about outfitting the [=DyGenGuard=] with a Neo Chakram Shooter or G-Impact Stake. It never comes to pass on account of the preferences to its pilot [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlphaGaiden Sanger Zonvolt]], but the weapons are obtainable throughout the series provided Sanger and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Ratsel Feinschemcker]] don't score any kills in their respective units.
* BridgeBunnies: A standout since the first game, being only nameless [=NPCs=] that aren't faceless with ''Original Generations'' giving two portraits for them. ''The Inspector'' highlights them with distinctive faces that one can easily mistake them supporting characters [[note]]One of them looks awfully familiar to one of the Anime/{{Gravion}} BridgeBunnies[[/note]]. Naturally, the ''Hagane'' and ''Hiryu Custom'' come with their own set of this.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: To put it bluntly, EVERY allied character, and a fair majority of the villains are weird, which DOESN'T detract from their piloting abilities.
* CanonImmigrant: Aside from characters moving from [=SRW=]-related manga, anime and drama [=CDs=] into the games, this extends to mecha and certain attacks from machines.
* CanonDiscontinuity: The second half of Kyosuke's route in ''Original Generation'', as a result of StoryBranchFavoritism. Something of an odd case, because even though the sequel follows Ryusei's entire route, Kyosuke's second half drops tons of {{foreshadowing}} as to the plot of ''Original Generation 2'', and lets us know somewhat more of just how much a MagnificentBastard [[spoiler: Ingram]] really was.
** ''Original Generations'' not only [[ContinuityReboot reboots the timeline]], but discontinues the {{True Final Boss}}es being optional, going on the premise they're actually fought.
* CaptainErsatz: Not simply the characters, but this includes the machines, with the most obvious stand-ins are the Huckebeins being Franchise/{{Gundam}}s by another name. Taken up a notch with the mass-produced Huckebein MK II, a faceless machine built in the style of the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam GM series]]. Similarly, Gespensts are stoutly built mass-produced units rolled out before other mecha in the series and get tons of variants, whose default color is green. Effectively, they are the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Zaku]] of ''Original Generation''.
** The Lion series, meanwhile, are similar to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Organization of Zodiac]] mecha, not only in their ThemeNaming, but they're highly streamlined, expendable and fielded by a shadowy faction that rises up against the government lead by a grandiose, morally ambiguous visionary. The three most common Lion-types fulfill similar roles (expendable fodder: Lion/Leo; artillery: Barrellion/Tragos; high-speed fliers: Guarlion/Taurus).
** The three main battleships, the ''Hagane'', ''Hiryu Custom'' and ''Kurogane'', are basically [=SRW's=] versions of the [[Anime/UchuuSenkanYamato Yamato]], [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Nadesico]] and [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Gotengo]], respectively.
* CharacterDevelopment: Boatloads of them, just as the amounts of characters added in. Most focus character usually get a good hefty of development throughout each games. If they look like StaticCharacter in one game, chances are, they already developed in the previous games. Though there are also StaticCharacter that did not develop, but still remain liked.
* CliffHanger: A particularly ''harsh one'' in the bonus sections of ''Original Generations''. A major, beloved character got unceremoniously killed off in a play of DeathByAdaptation just because their plot threads have been resolved and before they could dwell on it, a new giant threat posed itself onto Earth. ''And that's it, for the last moments of the section.'' ''OG Gaiden'' resolved this nicely, but within the interim, it was quite a dark era for those invested in the story and particularly that one character.
* ClosingCredits: See BeachEpisode, but episode 17 of ''The Inspector'' breaks tradition by featuring a softer, more romantic song accompanying clips of Kyosuke and Excellen from earlier episodes [[spoiler: because this is the point where Excellen's abducted by the Einst]].
* {{Combination Attack}}s
* CompressedAdaptation: Given the games have a minimum 40 "episodes" in a playthrough, their {{Animated Adaptation}}s, which are 26 episodes long, are inevitably this.
* ConspicuousCG: The enemy mecha in the OVA and every mecha in ''Divine Wars''. ''The Inspector'' uses this for generic mecha and airships.
* ContrivedCoincidence: While it seems like this is based on the idea extraterrestrials flock to Earth within a span of a few years, [[spoiler:Shu drops a revelation in the ''Second Original Generation'' regarding the Granzon's Anti-Matter Annihilation Engine and black hole technology had been, without his knowledge, altering space-time probability within the universe, causing these coincidences to occur more often. In short, all these coincidences occur because they are being ''forced'' to happen. He cancels the effect at the same time he drops this bombshell, but acknowledges it's probably too late for this to change anything]].
* {{Deconstruction}}: The first game did this regarding {{Super Robot}}s. Instead of ultimate machines that run on willpower or some AppliedPhlebotinum, all Earth-developed supers are treated as considerably stronger {{Real Robot}}s that run on feasible Earth technology and dynamics. This is reconstructed in the sequel, with the introduction of the Choukijin. It isn't until the appearance of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Fighter Roar]] and the Compatible Kaiser do we get classic SuperRobot.

** [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Perfectio]] is sealed out of the Original Generation universe, yet it's unknown if it can hold it away permanently. Given its [[EldritchAbomination nature]], completely destroying Perfectio may be [[CompleteImmortality downright impossible]].
** The [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ze Balmary Empire]] and their influence is still felt after the first ''Original Generation'' game [[spoiler:when [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Euzeth Gozzo]] serves as the BiggerBad of]] the ''Second Original Generation''; it's also explicitly indicated by the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Zuvorg Alliance]]" they are extremely wary of them.
* BiggerBad: While this notion was played with in previous games, prior installments, the events leading up to the ''Second Original Generation'' is manipulated by [[spoiler: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Euzeth Gozzo]], [[spoiler:Euzeth, who is using his clones AlternateUniverse counterparts in the multiverse TheMultiverse to revive himself. He continue his work; he remembers everything that has happened in the different universes he was in, too]].
* BiggerBad [[BigBadEnsemble Ensemble]]: As of ''Second Original Generation'', there are at least three major threats (that we know of) that have either been simply glimpsed by the heroes or just delayed in their objectives:
** [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Dark]] [[MultiversalConqueror Brain]]: Was forced back into whatever dimension he was hiding in, but he's by no means beaten, and is still seeking the 'Twelve Keys'. And his remnants fight in his stead for ''Moon Dwellers''.
** [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Perfectio]] [[CosmicHorror The King of Ruin]]: Was sealed out of the OG Dimension thanks to [[spoiler: Chris's and Ventus's HeroicSacrifice,]] but it's unknown if they can hold him permanently. And given his [[EldritchAbomination nature]], killing him outright may be [[CompleteImmortality impossible.]]
** The [[SuperRobotWarsAlpha Balmar]] [[TheEmpire Empire]]: Haven't been seen in force since ''OG1'', but their influence has still been felt with [[spoiler: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Euzeth Gozzo]] being the BiggerBad / TrueFinalBoss]] of ''Second OG'', and the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Zuvorg Alliance]] being extremely wary of them. And with the Balmar, there is of course their leader, [[GodOfEvil Kaiser Ephes]] to worry about as well.
* BittersweetEnding: The ''Second Original Generation'' ends with [[spoiler:Irui Gan Eden surviving the destruction of the Nashim Gan Eden, while [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kukuru]] and Eden; the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Garden of Baral]] are destroyed, Baral]]" is finished, yet [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha2 Son Ganlong]] implies he will return.

Finally, the "Cross Gate" left intact acts as a WildCard: it may bring more extraterrestrials/interdimensional extra-terrestrials/inter-dimensional travellers looking to conquer Earth, yet it opens the possibility for the Shura, who have previously left in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' on a good note, humanity's allies to return come and reinforce the Earthlings. Or possibly, the Elemental Lords of La Gias, who also departed to La Gias to take care of its inner business after Euzzeth has been taken care of (miracle might be required here since the last we see them Earthlings (both latter scenarios wind up occurring in ''Coffin of the End'', [[TheMagicGoesAway the Elemental Spirits have left]])]].

* BridgeBunnies: A standout since the first game, being only nameless [=NPCs=] {{Non Player Character}}s that aren't faceless with ''Original Generations'' giving two portraits for them.

** The
most obvious stand-ins are the Huckebeins "Huckebeins" being Franchise/{{Gundam}}s by another name. Taken name; taken up a notch with the mass-produced Huckebein "Huckebein MK II, II", a faceless machine unit built in the style of the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam GM "GM" series]]. Similarly, Gespensts "Gespensts" are stoutly built built, mass-produced units rolled out before other mecha in the series InUniverse and get tons of variants, whose default color is green. Effectively, they are the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Zaku]] "[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Zaku]]" of ''Original Generation''.
** The Lion "Lion" series, meanwhile, are similar to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing "[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Organization of Zodiac]] Zodiac]]" mecha, not only in their ThemeNaming, but they're highly streamlined, expendable and fielded by a shadowy faction that rises rising up against the government lead by a grandiose, morally ambiguous visionary. The three most common Lion-types fulfill similar roles (expendable fodder: Lion/Leo; artillery: Barrellion/Tragos; high-speed fliers: Guarlion/Taurus).

In other words, you'll hear the full tune of "Victory" from ''MX'', "Skill" from ''Alpha 2'' and ''Wings of Legend'' for the ''Second Original Generation''. Note that this is the second time in franchise history players were given a full vocal rendition of a song; the first belongs to "[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Do You Remember Love?]]" from the UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast version of ''Alpha''.

** In ''OG Gaiden'', no one expected that Axel Almer and Einst Alfimi would be brought BackFromTheDead and then play very vital parts in the story (namely, saving Lamia from her BrainwashedAndCrazy state), namely to maintain the 'image' of her having a DeathByAdaptation until the cover is blown (they don't even appear in promotion images, same goes to the Cry Wolves, while Fiona's survival suspense was ruined due to appearing in Excellence Eternal in scans). That wasn't the big 'no one expected that' moment. The biggest moment is when it was revealed that Dark Brain is the BigBad of the game and one of the BiggerBad of the entire series.
** The rest of the ''Masou Kishin'' cast appearing on a console [=SRW=] again after 11 years since their last appearance in ''Alpha Gaiden''. What makes this long-awaited return unexpected was a lot of fans lost hope of that ever happening, and [[TeasingCreator Banpresto waited until the last moment to reveal this]]. Moreover, the ''Masou Kishin'' mecha gaining their final attacks as a secret, despite violating canon, adds to the unexpectedness.

All [[spoiler: Guests]] characters are present, including [[spoiler:a certain Inspector who comes BackFromTheDead]].
** For ''Alpha'' players, it's obvious the [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Nashim Gan Eden]]]] would appear, as the Custos of the Garden of Baral were seen in promotional trailers. What players ''didn't'' expect was Kukuru and her Magalga from ''Alpha 2'' appearing alongside the returning Youkijin; in fact, players pretty much forgot about Kukuru after ''Alpha 2''.

Rather than counterattack, the boss will defend[[note]]Defending halves all damage taken[[/note]]; not even a Maximum Break is enough to destroy him.
