''Twinbee'' is a long-running ShootEmUp series by {{Konami}}, makers of ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}''. It's a much more light-hearted top-down entry into the genre, with the main ships being sentient beings with arms and legs and fighting enemies like watermelon slices and ladybugs.

* MarketBasedTitle: This series gets renamed regularly - the second game was released in America as ''Stinger'', while Europe received ''Twinbee Da!!'' and ''Rainbow Bell Adventure'' under the ''Pop'n Twinbee'' moniker (since the SNES version was the first game in the series released there). However, with the PSP collection and the recent [[{{Wii}} Virtual Console]] release using the ''Twinbee'' name, this may be at an end.

However, the series is finally starting to see the light of day in the United States: {{Konami}} first released the original game as ''Rainbow Bell'' as a part of their ''Konami Arcade Classics'' collection for the NintendoDS, a later ''Twinbee Portable'' collection for the PlayStationPortable, and now some of the games are starting to appear for purchase on download services for each console.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Eyecatch}}: Starting with ''Detana! Twinbee,'' and ''Twinbee Yahoo!'' has some good ones. Only the PSP version of ''Twinbee Da!'' lacks it.

* SceneryPorn: The first three games did have little dull scrolling backgrounds, but starting from ''Bells & Whistles,'' the lands or the skies you fly over are extremely detailed and beatiful, constantly changing as you go on.
** The first level of ''Bells & Whistles'' really feels like flying over a small, but very wonderful land. You start flying above the forest, and then arrive into a small town: soon you're flying in mountain scapes which have train tracks on them, then you arrive into a large construction site... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59Ce7ntAmy4 Just see it for yourself.]]
** ''Twinbee Yahhoo!'', being the pinnacle of the series and thus having the best backgrounds of the series, mixes this with awesome motional parallax scrolling and voice acting, giving out the feeling that of an 90's action anime episodes. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUt9GSQs0JE A memorable moment is when Twinbee makes a somersault in the air at the first stage, background changing like if you were on the cockpit.(See at 2:54)]] It gets much better at the third stage.
