An anime, ''Anime/IdolmasterXenoglossia'' -- from the [[{{Sunrise}} makers]] of ''MaiOtome'' -- was released in 2007 and later licensed by Sentai Filmworks. Rather than being a straight [[TheAnimeOfTheGame Anime Of The Game]], it was instead an {{Elseworld}} RealRobot show that cast the main characters as pilots (or "Masters") of {{Giant Robot}}s called [=IDOLs=] (making them [[IncrediblyLamePun IDOL-Masters]]). A more straightforward [[TheAnimeOfTheGame anime adaptation]] (called ''Anime/TheIdolmaster'') aired in Japan during the Summer and Fall Seasons of 2011.

* BewareTheNiceOnes - Sweet, dorky Haruka's image song carries strong dominatrix overtones. Also, have a listen to [[ShrinkingViolet Yukiho]]'s version of Overmaster!
** Hell, in the anime, sweet, dorky Haruka is the one who landed the BigBad role in the faux-movie trailer. [[ChewingTheScenery She's apparently having a hell of a time]] [[MeanCharacterNiceActor playing it]].

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange - Happen often in the main games.
** In the UpdatedRerelease for the Xbox 360, [[spoiler:Miki cuts her hair shorter and stops dying it in her alternate route.]]
** Azusa cut her hair short on The Idolm@ster 2. Going by the anime, it was when she was scouted as part of the RK. She keeps this hairstyle in future games.
** Makoto grew out her hair slightly in 2 to look more feminine. This has also stuck.
** Ritusko trades in her braided pigtails for a messy bun in 2 to look more professional as a producer. She keeps this appearance in ''One For All'' but changes her hair again to a side braid in ''Platnium Stars.''

The franchise has spawned three [[MobilePhoneGame card games for phones]], ''Cinderella Girls'', ''[=SideM=]'' (for the Mobage platform) and ''Million Live'' (for the GREE platform) They feature unique idols and have spawned [=CDs=] and mangas of their own. ''[=SideM=]'' is also noteworthy for being the first game of the franchise with females as its main audience: it features solely male idols. ''Cinderella Girls'' spawned a big enough {{fandom}} to gain an [[Anime/TheIdolmasterCinderellaGirls anime]], that premiered on the Winter2015Anime season. It'll also receive a RhythmGame for smartphones, ''THE IDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage'', with gameplay similar to fellow rhythm phone games such as ''Franchise/LoveLive School Idol Festival'' but using 3D models.
