* ILetYouWin: The last battle with [[spoiler: Albedo]] in ''Episode II'' and pretty much all the battles with the testaments in Episode III: you don't get the impression that you beat the paricular Testament, so much as it got bored and decided to ''let you have'' the win.

* FanDisservice: Albedo plays EvilIsSexy to the hilt...usually for the benefit of [[{{Lolicon}} preteen-looking]] [[ArtificialHuman Realians]] and [[{{Twincest}} his own brother]], all while crossing one MoralEventHorizon after another. In a sillier example, in the latter two games, everyone, not just the more-or-less humans, gets an optional [[BeachEpisode swimsuit]]. Including [[HollywoodCyborg Ziggy]]. It's an unflattering Speedo and ridiculous man-bra of a rebreather harness. In purple. With swim fins. Less justifiably, some gamers, apparently fearful of {{Wardrobe Malfunction}}s, would list Jin's fundoshi as well. Allen's 20's style single piece swimsuit could almost count, and there's chaos'...bulge in the first game. He lost it in the subsequent games, thankfully.

* {{Expy}}: Numerous 'Saga cast members have 'Gears counterparts, most notably Jin. He's a bit of a subversion, though. Despite their superficial resemblance, Citan was a hyper-competent borderline CanonSue with a beautiful wife & daughter & successful practice as a town doctor. Jin is a layabout who washed out of the medical profession, had a lousy relationship with his family the only woman he ever loved wound up trying to kill him. He's still a badass, though.

* MythologyGag: The series natrually references Xenogears quite a bit.

* [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo One Game For The Price Of Three]]: The series consists of three separate games, of which only Episodes I and III are long enough to qualify as full-length [=RPGs=]. Episodes I and II were originally intended to be a single game which was subsequently split in two. The so-called "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXDk8ufe7I8 8 Minutes and 8 Seconds]]" trailer for Episode I showcased events such as Jin and Margulis's sword duel and the activation of Proto-Ω--two events which occur near the climax of Episode II. The combined Episodes I&II were later released as a NintendoDS game, [[NoExportForYou which never made it out of Japan]].
