[[TheFuture It is the year 20,031]]. [[PlayerCharacter You are Trent Hawkins]], a [[TerraForm terraformation]] pilot currently assigned to the planet Tyrian, the only planet in the entire sector that contains samples of [[{{Unobtainium}} Gravitium]], a material that causes huge chunks of its landmass to [[FloatingContinent float in the air]]. While on the job, Trent's best friend, Buce Quesillac, a [[LizardFolk Hazudra]], was shot in the back by a hoverdrone belonging to [[MegaCorp Microsol]], the company in charge of the terraformation efforts on Tyrian. With his dying breath, Buce informs Trent that Microsol intends to use the Gravitium to take control of the sector, and that he's next on their hit list. With that, Trent begins a long, dangerous fight for his survival.

* EarnYourFun: The SHIPEDIT program. What weapons and equipment you can give to any of the ten custom ships available is limited by how far you have progressed into the game, the weapons and equipment you have used for an entire level, and your Destruction percentage at the end of each level. The more weapons you use in any of the game's modes, and the higher your Destruction percentage at the end of each level, the more weapons and better equipment SHIPEDIT will allow you to outfit.

* UpToEleven: The front and rear guns all have eleven power levels. This trope is also the basis of a joke in one of the datacubes that manages to poke fun at Film/TheTenCommandments and ThisIsSpinalTap simultaneously.

* CutSong: The music tracks "The [=MusicMan=]" and "The final edge" appear in the setup program's jukebox, but not in the game itself. (The former is part of the game's music library)

* BlessedWithSuck: Your Story Mode game turns into [[spoiler:a Super Tyrian run]] if you are flying The Stalker 21.126 at the end of Episode 4 [[spoiler:and complete Zinglon's Revenge. All your weapons and sidekicks will be replaced by whatever you managed to generate while playing the minigame and your shield gets dropped to a basic level.]] The ease with which a player can accidentally ButtonMash some of the [[SomeDexterityRequired secret twiddles]] for the hidden special weapons or functions, combined with the fact that all of them drain some of your shields or your armor, means that you will inevitably trigger one at a bad moment. Using a mouse to play, however, makes it a lot harder to execute them, although this may not be a good idea in some cases. If you choose to [[HeroicWillpower just finish the last episode]] and adapt to the quirks of The Stalker 21.126, however, this trope is subverted as instead of [[spoiler:reloading your game and skipping Zinglon's Revenge]], you will be rewarded with [[spoiler:the secret code to use the [[PurposefullyOverpowered Nort Ship Z]] in Super Arcade Mode]].

* PurposefullyOverpowered: The Nort Ship Z, your reward for [[spoiler:completing the final episode on Super Tyrian mode]]. Its special weapons are Astral Zone, a BeamSpam of Zica Lasers across the whole screen for three seconds, and the SDF Main Gun. Yes, the {{Infinity Plus One Sword}}/{{Wave Motion Gun}} of ''Tyrian'' is the second of this ship's two ''default Special Abilities''. It also has the same armor level as The Stalker 21.126 the maximum amount possible in the game.

** The UpToEleven Lightning Cannon emits a dazzling stream of opaque lightning and is relatively powerful, but the power it drains is colossal (even the most powerful generator in the game, the Gravitron Pulse-Wave, cannot recharge fast enough if it is used alongside other energy-draining weapons such as the Zica Flamethrower), higher than the Level 2 or 5 Mega Pulse, and it is often less effective than the Level 11 Mega Pulse. This is not helped by the fact that the Mega Pulse is cheaper and usually available for purchase ''before'' the Lightning Cannon.
*** Can be made more practical by leaving it at level 9, where not only does it still do boatloads of damage, but fires two smaller beams in a 30 degree fan. Fully upgrading it will limit it to a straight line only.
