In January 2016, Banpresto teased ''Second Original Generation'' sequel ''The Moon Dwellers'', introducing ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment'' into the fray with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsJudgment Touya Shun]] as the headlining protagonist with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsJudgment Calvina Coulange]] as supporting. Furthermore, both versions of the hero(ine) from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGC'' will join the roster: whereas the male "Akimi Akatsuki" keeps the original name, the female is rendered into his [[HalfIdenticalTwins older twin sister]], "Ak''e''mi" (similar to the ''Reversal'' protagonists). In a twist, [[Characters/EndlessFrontier Haken Browning]] from ''Endless Frontier'' will join the roster, using a HumongousMecha-sized version of the game's Gespenst Phantom. ''The Moon Dwellers'' will be simultaneously released on the [=PlayStation=] 3 and the UsefulNotes/PlayStation4, the first [=SRW=] for the latter console. Finally, after years of NoExportForYou, Namco Bandai will localize the [=PlayStation=] 4 version into English for the Southeast Asia region; whether Europe and North America will receive the same treatment remains to be seen.

** Haken being present in ''The Moon Dwellers'' is not only a surprise, but will effectively bridge the gap between his and Sanger's appearance from ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' and justify their abscence in the sequel.

* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Starting from ''OG Gaiden'', this trope starts to appear as opposed to military personnels for the rosters: Kouta and Shouko Azuma and Michiru Hanaten used to be normal students (though Michiru is a delinquent) until they had to pilot their Super Robots (and as of Kouta & Shouko, becoming Fighter Roar & Emi, so they're not quite ordinary anymore). In ''Moon Dwellers'', Touya is going to join their ranks, as per the ''Judgment'' story ([[spoiler:and his Fury heritage will make him not-so-ordinary like Kouta as well]]).

* UnexpectedCharacter: 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.
** Savvy players knew the plot of [[spoiler: ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4'']] would happen sooner or later, but no one expected the [[spoiler: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Guests of the Zuvorg Alliance]]]] to appear in the ''Second Original Generation''. 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''. Also, [[spoiler:Son Ganlong]] is present as one of the late-game bosses, but rather than the [[spoiler: Shin [=RyuOhKi=]]] from ''Alpha 3'', players are treated to the [[spoiler: [=OuRyuOh=]]].
** Somehow, Banpresto gave a little love to ''Super Hero Operations'' by including new character Arteil Steinbeck, [[spoiler: a clone {{expy}} of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Euzeth Gozzo]], who turns out to be Euzeth himself, having masterminded all the 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'' to challenge Kouta to a fight.

One fine day in Japan, the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' division of Banpresto pondered the following: "Hey, our HumongousMecha MegaCrossover franchise has developed [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters quite the roster]] of [[OriginalGeneration original characters]]. What say we, instead of paying out the license fees for ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'', ''Anime/{{Macross}}'', ''Anime/MazingerZ'' and ''Manga/GetterRobo'' and the like for this year's game, just build it around our in-house characters and robots instead?"

But even that wasn't enough, so just before their absorption into NamcoBandai, Banpresto compiled both games into a VideoGameRemake for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 called ''Super Robot Wars OG: Original Generations'' and gave it all the bells and whistles of a full console-sized [=SRW=], plus additional scenarios bridging the original games and a "2.5: Unified Wisdom" scenario based on the semi-sequel {{OVA}}. These additions brought more "[[FanNickname Banpresto Originals]]" and set the stage for ''Super Robot Wars Original Generation Gaiden'', a GaidenGame sequel expanding on the "2.5" mini-plot into an entire story by combining them with the plots of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact3'', ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsReversal'' and a few characters from Banpresto's earlier ''The Great Battle'' series on the SuperFamicom.

In August 2011, nearly 7 years after ''Original Generation 2'' was released on the Game Boy Advance, the true non-GaidenGame, non-remake sequel was announced. Entitled ''The Second Super Robot Wars Original Generation''[[note]]That is, "Dai-2-ji", stylized in the way sequels of major continuities like the "Classic Timeline", ''Alpha'' and ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ'' are done; yes, this created some confusion and bemusement in Japan[[/note]], it is the first [=SRW=] to be released on the UsefulNotes/{{PlayStation 3}}. The story expands the ''Alpha 2'' plotlines for [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kusuha Mizuha]] and Ibis, as well as concluding the ''MX'' saga. In addition, Joshua Radcliffe and Cliana Rimskaya of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsDestiny'', [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Ariel Org]] of ''Real Robot Regiment'' and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Ing Egret]] from the ''Alpha 2'' side-story manga ''Lost Children'' are the new entrants into the series.

Additionally, the [=RaiOh=] from ''Alpha 3'' appears, yet a villianous AI-controlled SuperPrototype takes it place first, whose objective is the destruction of the other Dynamic General Guardian {{super robot}}s called the ''[[ContinuityNod Jin]][[MythologyGag Rai]]''.

* [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming Idiosyncratic Sequel Naming]]: Though this wasn't a problem at first, it cropped up thanks to ''Original Generation 2'' and the ''Second Original Generation''. See, sequels in major [=SRW=] continuities are traditionally called "Dai-#-ji Super Robot Wars (continuity name)"; the number denotes what chapter the series is in. ''Original Generation 2'' wasn't - it was ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin in English, even in Japan. This raised a few eyebrows but nobody thought much of it, until both games were compiled into ''Original Generation'''s'''''. At this point, Banpresto seems to have treated ''Original Generations'' much like they previously did with the ''Compact 2'' trilogy regarding ''Impact'' - that BOTH Game Boy Advance titles are simply "parts one and two" of the "FIRST" ''Original Generation''. Since ''Original Generation Gaiden'' is...well, a GaidenGame, when the "proper" sequel came out, it's stylized as "Dai-2-ji Super Robot Wars Original Generation". The end result is two games with a "2" in their title and a decent amount of confusion in Japan and internationally; in other words, the Gameboy Advance game is typically referred to as ''Original Generation 2'', while the Playstation 3 title is the ''Second Original Generation''.

At this point, Banpresto seems to have treated ''Original Generations'' much like they previously did with the ''Compact 2'' trilogy regarding ''Impact'' - that BOTH Game Boy Advance titles are simply "parts one and two" of the "FIRST" ''Original Generation''. Since ''Original Generation Gaiden'' is...well, a GaidenGame, when the "proper" sequel came out, it's stylized as "Dai-2-ji Super Robot Wars Original Generation". The end result is two games with a "2" in their title and a decent amount of confusion in Japan and internationally; in other words, the Gameboy Advance game is typically referred to as ''Original Generation 2'', while the Playstation [=PlayStation=] 3 title is the ''Second Original Generation''.
