* AchievementMockery: ''2nd'' has a trophy titled "King of Being Shot Down" (roughly translated from Japanese) if you lose five of your mechs in a single stage.

* ArticifialStupidity: Grunts will happily throw themselves at enemies and die when there is no chance of them possibly doing any good. This is great for dealing with {{mooks}} who attack when they have a 0% chance to hit, less so when your allies choose to die rather than stay back and the success of the mission hedges on their survival.

* UnexpectedCharacter
** No one expected Axel [[spoiler:and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Einst Alfimi]]]] would be brought BackFromTheDead for ''Original Generation Gaiden'', the former even playing a pivotal role in the story (saving a BrainwashedAndCrazy Lamia). In fact, the game managing to maintain its "[[CliffHanger image]]" from "2.5: Unified Wisdom" threw players for a loop (promotional materials didn't show Axel nor the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX Cry Wolves]]"; [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal Fiona Gureden]] and her survival from ''Original Generations'', however, was [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil spoiled]]), yet the biggest surprise was Dark Brain as the BigBad of the game and eventual BigBadEnsemble of the series, effectively bridging ''The Great Battle'' SpinOff into ''Original Generation''.
*** Same game, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal Despinis]] being SparedByAdaptation is also a rather unexpected outcome since it happens near endgame and by that time, most people believed that they're not going to spare the close associates of the BigBad who in the original games did not pull a HeelFaceTurn and lived to tell the tale (Axel was at least playable in an alternate route in ''Advance'', Alfimi and Fernando met their end after their last-minute HeelFaceTurn, Alion wasn't a very close associate to Alkaid, Mekibos was at least confirmed to have survived his death by Wendolo to return later as a good guy).
** The rest of the ''Masou Kishin'' cast appearing on a console [=SRW=] again after 11 years since their last appearance in ''Alpha Gaiden'' for the ''Second Original Generation''. What makes this long-awaited return unexpected was a lot of fans lost hope of that ever happening, until Banpresto revealed it at the last moment. Moreover, the ''Masou Kishin'' mecha gaining their final attacks as a secret, despite violating canon, adds to the unexpectedness.
** Savvy players knew the plot of [[spoiler:''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4'']] would happen sooner or later, but no one anticipated the [[spoiler: "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Guests]]" of the Zuvorg Alliance]] to appear in the ''Second Original Generation'': all of its characters are present, including [[spoiler:a certain Inspector who comes BackFromTheDead]].
** For ''Alpha'' players, it's obvious the [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha2 Nashim Gan Eden]]]] would appear as the Custos of the Garden of Baral were seen in promotional trailers of the ''Second Original Generation''. What players ''didn't'' expect was [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha2 Kukuru]] from ''Alpha 2'' appearing alongside the returning Youkijin; in fact, players pretty much forgot about Kukuru post-''Alpha 2''. Likewise, [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha3 Son Ganlong]]]] being present as one of the late-game bosses, but rather than the [[spoiler:"Shin [=RyuOhKi=]"]] from ''Alpha 3'', players are treated to the new [[spoiler:"[=OuRyuOh=]"]].
** Somehow, Banpresto gave a little love to ''Super Hero Operations'' in the ''Second Original Generation'' by including newcomer Arteil Steinbeck, [[spoiler:a clone {{Expy}} of Euzeth, who turns out to be Euzeth himself, having masterminded all current events in ''Original Generation'' {{Continuity}}. Instead of the "[[PaletteSwap Black Judecca]]" from ''Alpha'', Euzeth uses the new "Adamatron", a clever MythologyGag to the "Chojin Zest" from ''Super Hero Operations'']].
** Michiru Hanaten is a [[JapaneseDelinquents delinquent]] loosely mentioned in the ''Endless Frontier EXCEED'' drama CD and appears in the ''Second Original Generation'' in-person to challenge Kouta to a fight. He achieved instant EnsembleDarkhorse status [[spoiler:when he becomes playable in the game with his own HumongousMecha]].
** Haken and Aschen being present in ''The Moon Dwellers'' was not only a pleasant surprise, but it's a detailed follow-up to Sanger's sojourn into ''Project X Zone'', as well as justify Haken and Sanger's absence in the ''Project X Zone'' sequel game.

* LethalJokeItem: In ''The Moon Dwellers'', the "Mind Blast" optional weapon. It doesn't do a lot of damage and it's normally a waste of space. This optional weapon however is also a key strategy to defeat any boss that casts spirit commands, especially the dreaded "Iron Wall"[[note]]Reduce damage to 25%[[/note]] spirit command. It makes [[ThatOneBoss/SuperRobotWars any of those bosses a total joke.]]

* {{Badass}}: Most characters, heroic or villanous, adhere to this. Some greatly personify it, whereas one of them is Banpresto's walking embodiment of it.

** BadassCrew: The "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Steel Dragon Battle Group]]", the protagonists' official team, facing off against aliens, terrorists and {{Cosmic Horror}}s, all of them using HumongousMecha, completely stomping them flat [[DefeatMeansFriendship or possibly recruiting them to their cause]]. To a smaller extent, the individual "ATX Team", "SRX Team", "Octo Squad", Aggressors and smaller parties (such as Shu's RagTagBunchOfMisfits in ''Dark Prison'')

** The trope usage in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment'' is back in ''The Moon Dwellers''. Whoever is partnered more with Calvina will be present in a dialogue after getting Bellzelute Brigandy to reflect on Calvina's CharacterDevelopment. Whoever is partnered more with Touya [[spoiler:will be kidnapped alongside Touya and taken to Gau-La Furia, escaping together and during the ending, will have a personal heartful talk with Touya.]]

** Hilariously enough, this deconstruction is why [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsGC Akimi Akatsuki]] prefers the SRX over the Compatible Kaiser; instead of just being just a SuperRobot, the SRX is basically the epitome of Earth's technology taken to its peak.

* 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''.
