* CreatorCameo: HidekiKamiya appears [[spoiler:as a secret unlockable character, Wonder-Director.]] Even better, his taunt is his infamous Twitter reply "Ask [[YourMom your mom]]".

* CreatorCameo: HidekiKamiya Creator/HidekiKamiya appears [[spoiler:as a secret unlockable character, Wonder-Director.]] Even better, his taunt is his infamous Twitter reply "Ask [[YourMom your mom]]".



* SecretCharacter: Several. [[spoiler:Some of them are characters that are temporarily playable during the story mode, such as Cmdr. Nelson as Wonder-Red (Emeritus), Immorta, Chewgi, Vorkken, and Wonder-Goggles. Others are characters that appear during the story mode, but are not normally playable, such as Alice MacGregor (as Wonder-Scarf), Professor Shirogane (as Wonder-Gramps), Arthur Wedgewood (as Wonder-Daddy), and Young Will (as Wonder-Future, who is pretty much a JokeCharacter due to only being able to use a small Unite Hand). Others are Poseman, a Viewtiful Joe {{Expy}}, Wonder-Director, who is a OneHitPointWonder CreatorCameo of HidekiKamiya, and [[{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}} Bayonetta, Rodin, and Jeanne]].]]

* {{Acrofatic}}: Wonder-Green, who also carries sweets with him at all times.
* {{Adorkable}}: Wonder-Yellow, complete with a LuminescentBlush.



* BadassSanta: Santa Claus is a member of The Wonderful 100, codenamed [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Wonder-Santa]].
* BadassTeacher: Mr. Wedgewood, who is Wonder-Red.



* DarkActionGirl: Vijounne.



* [[spoiler:DragonWithAnAgenda: During a head-to-head clash with the Guyzoch, [[TheDragon Chewgi]] will [[IShallTauntYou berate the 100 and tell them to put up a better fight.]] It may seem like a case of Chewgi demanding a more [[BloodKnight satisfying]] [[WorthyOpponent battle]], until the 100 learn the back story of the Guyzoch. Vorkken had enslaved them all. So in hindsight, it can be interpreted as Chewgi trying to rile them up so they would have the drive to defeat them and end their enslavement.]]



** A team of color-coded super heroes with secret identities of normal everyday citizens fighting off an alien invasion? [[{{PowerRangers}} Hmmm...]]
*** [[OlderThanTheyThink More specifically]], The Wonderful 101 tries (and succeeds) to homage, play off of, or straight up play, beat for beat, all of the classic tropes of SuperSentai shows.

* GreaterScopeVillain: [[spoiler:The Greater Galactic Coalition, which originally descended from a Wonderful 100 gone corrupt.]]



* GunsAreWorthless: Initially, Unite Gun is definitely the least useful morph in combat. It's really only good at shooting flying enemies and throwing back bombs, and even in that Unite Whip does it better. After gaining its version of Wonderful Stinger, which allows for rapid-fire shots, it becomes a very useful tool for snaring distant enemies with Climb Attacks, though it remains less than useful for doing damage on its own (although it is extremely useful for building and maintaining combos). However, it is IMMENSELY more powerful in cutscenes and [=QTEs=], able to destroy large battleships in a few shots.

* ArcNumber: 100 and 101, obviously. There are 100 Wonderful Ones (101 if [[PlayerAndProtagonistIntegration we count the player]]) spread across 100 cities around the world [[spoiler: and become 101 proper once Luka joins]]. Similarly, [[spoiler:Jergingha refers to the Wonderful Ones' descendants who will invade the GEATHJERK homeworld as "the 100 demons"]].

* BadassArmyBadassArmy:
** The Wonderful 100 are a badass army and if their numbers aren't at full they can recruit bystanders who are immediately skilled enough to participate.
** The Gyzoch assists Vorkken in creating their own Unite Morphs and were hand picked to be the best army in the galaxy.



* BaitAndSwitchBoss: [[spoiler: Vorkken defeats, and buries, the GEATHJERK commander who was supposed to be trying to destroy the final Reactor before you even get to him. Instead you fight Vorkken simply because he wants to fight you.]]

** In Operation 004-B, Immorta is shown destroying three robot enemies with only a few shots of her crossbow. [[spoiler: When you get her on the team, her crossbow is nowhere near that powerful, let alone when it's ''not'' in a Unite Morph.]]

** When first encountering [[spoiler: Laambo's brother, he scoffs at Red calling him the invader, amused by some sort of perceived irony. During the final boss battle, Jerginga gladly fills in the gaps for everyone.]]
** [[spoiler: Laambo seems to recognize Wonder Red just before being killed. Turns out he was referring to the captain who you later learn Was the previous Wonder Red before Will who managed to take on Laambo alone.]]

** Red remembering everyone's full names, with all titles and even remembering [[spoiler: Immorta's patrol sector number]] after hearing it once. Later morphs into Red giving new attacks increasingly long and convoluted names.
** Blue is apparently rather bad with technology and is forbidden from touching controls. [[spoiler: Subverted when he's the one to figure out the team can hijack the enemy giant robots in the space level]]

** Several of the characters look like Expies of characters from Platinum's previous game ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'', formerly working with {{Capcom}} as Clover Studio.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything:
** Notice how every time Wonder-Red rouses the team ("Team! Unite Up!" or the like), Wonder-Blue is the only one not to salute and say "Roger!". Blue openly opposes Red's leadership style since Red is a newbie and is too diplomatic for his own good. [[spoiler:Some people think this is a programming oversight, but this continues until Operation 006-B; after he learns of Red's past, Blue finally accepts Red's leadership and begins to salute with the rest of the team.]]
** As the game progresses, the "Roger!" becomes more synchronized until they're in perfect unison to reflect how much the team has grown together.
** There are little extra visual details in stages that can easily be overlooked. Cars, for example, will have their alarms and headlights turned on briefly when struck.
** Subverted (arguably) with the Kahkoo-Regahs (gimmick-based secret missions similar to ''Franchise/{{Bayonetta}}'''s Alfheims and Muspelheims). If you fail the challenge and choose to retry from the failure screen, it's counted as a continue in the Operation Results. However, if you choose not to retry, you spawn back into the level and can try again with no penalty.

* GiantEnemyCrab: The Deah-Kani enemy type, based somewhat on the Japanese Spider Crab. Yes, you AttackItsWeakPoint ForMassiveDamage, by cutting off its legs to bring it to the ground and stun it, and pry open its shell using Unite Claw in order to expose the weak point. It's the only way to do any real damage to it most of the time, even.
