** Some might sum it up due to Aschen misreading the name as a result of her occasionally buggy nature, but also because the computer she reads from is heavily damaged.

** Jossed in ''The Moon Dwellers'', Haken mentions that the person who created him is Female, as he calls her mother.

** FanWank: This flub has become a wank among those who refuse to ignore the mistranslation. To them, in "the American continuity", [[spoiler:Lemon's (or rather, the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Shadow-Mirror]] AlternateUniverse version of Excellen's) father called Raymond was the one who began the W-Series. When his daughter was killed in the shuttle crash, Lemon, after being resurrected through robotics and science, switched the focus to androids after taking over [[CloningBlues in order to understand herself]]]]. While canon for ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'' has not officially {{Jossed}} this, most players find this theory ridiculous due to overextending WildMassGuessing as a result of a mistranslating a name.

Added DiffLines:

* NamesTheSame: Obviously characters in the ''Endless Frontier'' games having the same surname as those in ''Original Generation''. {{Lampshaded}} InUniverse during ''The Moon Dwellers'' - most of the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Steel Dragon Battle Group]]" are puzzled Haken has Excellen's surname. Naturally, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Kyosuke Nanbu]] quickly puts two-and-two togther by pointing almost everything about Haken links back to the Shadow-Mirror.

* HellIsThatNoise: Aledy's Aspire Spirit Command is supposed to be a {{Kiai}}. The sound is basically him vomitting.

* ScrappyMechanic: Forced Evasion

to:

* ScrappyMechanic: "[[ComboBreaker Forced EvasionEvasion]]" in the first game; rectified in the sequel with more strict requirements for enemies to trigger it. Additionally, allied characters can ''also'' use this by sacrificing the "[[LimitBreak Frontier Gauge]]".



** The first fight with Kyon: she [[FlunkyBoss and her Joker Soldier flunkies]] inflict StandardStatusEffects with their attacks at a point in the first game where you can only use items to remove them (unless you LevelGrind Kaguya to gain the "Prayer" Spirit Command[[note]]Remove a negative status effect on an allied party member[[/note]]). Should Kyon attack one party member instead of three, there's a chance it's going to be a long combo string that includes her Overdrive.
** In ''EXCEED'', Mark '''FUCKING''' Hunter: a FlunkyBoss with ''[[DemonicSpiders three Katanas]]'', exceptionally devastating and LONG attack string and a heavyweight, despite appearances. Chances are if he targets one party member for a combo, expect that character to be knocked out.
* {{Woolseyism}}: Aside from the one glaring mistake, {{Atlus}} added their usual amount of benevolent tweaks. Among other things, ''Franchise/TombRaider'' and ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' get {{Shout Out}}s.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Most of the soundtrack qualifies, since the majority are remixes of old ''SuperRobotWars''/''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' {{Leitmotif}}s, but special mention goes to the remix of the ''SuperRobotWarsAdvance'' main theme "Where Infinities Meet".

* GameBreaker
** The first game gives us Reiji, the party's strongest attacker, and carries the "Soul" [[hottip:*:In the ''Endless Frontier'' games, "Soul" deals twice the damage for the next attack, rather than 2.5 times]] and "Swift" [[hottip:*:Perform the first action on the next turn, regardless of allied/enemy speed]] Spirit Commands. He's preceded by Haken later in the game, who combines a more modest "Valor" Spirit Command [[hottip:*:In the ''Endless Frontier'' games, "Valor" deals 50% more damage for the next attack, instead]] with his Special Skill "Rampage Specter". No {{Mook}}s can survive it, while end-game bosses will get a significant portion of their HP chipped away because of it.
*** In the sequel, Reiji gets the Special Skills "Arisu Ryuu Tenchi Shinmei" [[hottip:*:Refill 50-100 Spirit Points to the party]] and "Arisu Ryuu Ura Kimon Kaihou" [[hottip:*:Gain the effects of "Swift" for the party]]. Combined with newcomer Aledy Nassh's "Aspire" Spirit Command [[hottip:*:Refill the Frontier Gauge to 100%]], you can create a loop that gives infinite SP to the whole team. Also consider that Reiji has the "Friendship" Spirit Command [[hottip:*:Recover 30% HP to the party]], and add Haken's "Canfield" Special Skill [[hottip:*:Gain the effects of "Alert" (all enemy attacks will miss for one turn)]] to the mix, only the latter parts of the BonusDungeon can pose a threat to the party.
** Back in the first game, Haken has a 100% critical hit setup alongside "Jackpot", one of his attacks extremely easy to chain to avoid "[[ScrappyMechanic Forced Evasion]]". The developers likely noticed this, so {{nerf}}ed the critical setup and "Jackpot" for ''EXCEED''. In return, he gained the Spirit Command "Co-Op" [[hottip:*:Personal support can be activated twice and Support Attack is granted an additional use]] and the Special Skill "Canfield", all of which is learned relatively early. Later, Haken learns the attack "Quad Solitaire", which is bar none the strongest attack in the game, and still retains his absurdly high critical hit rate. Having Haken in the party gives you a powerful damage dealer, a decent Frontier Gauge filler and an almost sure fire way to make the majority of boss fights a total joke.
*** Don't forget that in the first game, using the 100% critical hit setup bypasses the need for casting "Valor" when using Rampage Specter - AND the setup ALSO boosts teammates' critical hits by 20% (15% in ''EXCEED'').
** Suzuka in ''EXCEED'' gets the attack "Jyaki-GUN Ghost Dance", which seems mediocre on its own. However, with a Support Attack that holds the enemy in place (Xiaomu and T-ELOS, for example), they'll instead be hit repeatedly, chaining for an exceptionally long attack string. Combine this with "Co-Op" to allow T-ELOS to Support Attack twice and Suzuka's "Passion" Spirit Command [[hottip:*:Double the rate the Frontier Gauge gains]], you can repeat this three times per turn, dealing high damage and filling the Frontier Gauge to 100% in one go.
** [[VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}} KOS-MOS]] counts, to a lesser degree, in the first game: not only is she a very capable fighter and among the sturdiest of the party, she comes with the "Bond" Spirit Command [[hottip:*:Recover 30% HP to the party]], more economic than Reiji's "Friendship" ("Bond" costs 40 Spirit Bonds; "Friendship" for 30), and the "Attune" Spirit Command [[hottip:*:Allied character's will not achieve guard or miss when attacking for one turn]], further maximizing the party's damage. Also take note that when KOS-MOS joins the party, she starts with the "Fury" Spirit Command [[hottip:*:Auto-break enemy guard on the first attack]], to which Kaguya learns it later at a higher cost (25 Spirit Points to KOS-MOS' 15). Combined with her moveset, KOS-MOS can tear through {{mooks}} and most bosses. The only problem is learning how to juggle her combos effectively, which is relatively easy to overcome; unfortunately, the other setback is she's the [[MightyGlacier slowest character in the party]].
** Xiaomu is the only character without a multi-target Overdrive, but is compensated by being the only character who can hit any enemy (including bosses) with StandardStatusEffects, provided it doesn't prevent them from taking turns ("Paralysis" and "Stun", for example). {{Flunky Boss}}es like Saya's minions and the [[Characters/EndlessFrontier Jotun siblings]] are otherwise normally immune to status ailments. Also, she has the "Uranai" [[hottip:*:Cast a random Spirit Command for a party member]] and the "Daunt" Spirit Commands [[hottip:*:Lower enemy E. Gauge by 50%]].
** Item usage in general for both games: proper use of items supported by COM-restoration items can significantly reduce game difficulty, mainly thanks to the fact that you can use as many items as the COM bar allows you to.
