* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The game has kickass soundtrack, especially the first game's BGM of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_g0xyJn0I8 Burn]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGIL5aBQCWE Sonia]]. The opening song for the [=PlayStation=] ports are also done by Hironobu Kageyama, one of Music/JAMProject's founding members.

** PolishedPort: ''Psychic Force 2'', the [=PlayStation=] version of ''Psychic Force 2012'', did suffer from a visual downgrade compared to the Dreamcast version, but it does have much more features and game modes to play around with, including a Psy-Expand mode where you can level-up the characters and give them custom movesets by using moves from the other characters. ''Psychic Force 2'' even brings back Sonia, Brad, and Genma from the first game.

* TearJerker: The series pulls no punches when it comes to the [[CrapsackWorld bleakness of its own story]]. Most of the endings from both games tend to end on either a [[BittersweetEnding bitter]] or [[DownerEnding downer]] note, with the most notable examples being Burn's endings from both games, Wendy's ending from 2012, Keith's ending from 2012, Sonia's ending from the first game, Might's ending from 2012, Carlo's ending from 2012, Regina's ending from 2012, and Genshin's ending from 2012.

Most of the endings from both games tend to end on either a [[BittersweetEnding bitter]] or [[DownerEnding downer]] note, with the most notable examples being Burn's endings from both games, Wendy's ending from 2012, ''2012'', Keith's ending from 2012, ''2012'', Sonia's ending from the first game, Might's ending from 2012, ''2012'', Carlo's ending from 2012, ''2012'', Regina's ending from 2012, ''2012'', and Genshin's ending from 2012.''2012''.



* TheWoobie: It goes without saying that Emilio's life just sucks balls. He's a timid boy who's constantly bullied for his freakishly powerful Psychiccer abilities and had no real friend except Wendy. He's in constant danger of his power running out of control and damaging anyone who goes near, and he'll blame himself for that. In ''2010'', it got worse: He got kidnapped by the Army, then BrainwashedAndCrazy into a psychopathic version of himself that strikes at anyone he came across without mercy, [[AndIMustScream all while his good self watches and constantly fought for dominance so he can make things right.]] [[spoiler:And he fails at that too.]]
** Wendy as well. She looks like a really optimistic PluckyGirl, but she lost her sister and could have killed her by accident, which would seriously devastate her. By the time ''2010'' rolls in, Wendy is the only one from the Anti-NOA group around, Burn went missing, Emilio got brainwashed. All while looking for her friends, Wendy is showing considerable insecureness and could end up killing Emilio. Even if she succeeded in reuniting with Burn, she was already in fear of losing everything she held dear and could use a hug.

* RootingForTheEmpire: NOA gets a good proportion of fan-love and sympathy. Not really surprising for the faction analogous to ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, plus all of NOA's loyal members are sympathetic characters to some degree, and it doesn't help that Anti-NOA doesn't seem to have a competing plan to improve Psychiccers' [[FantasticRacism lot]]. The OVA in particular leaves Burn looking LawfulStupid and Keith lounging comfortably in StrawManHasAPoint territory. [[EvilIsSexy Having the ladies to be]] MsFanservice (and still sympathetic) also helps a lot, not to mention that Wong's Army proved to be even more evil and unsympathetic than they are.

** [[TheBrute Gudeath]], a [[GravitySucks gravity-controlling]] SocialDarwinist BloodKnight whose only reason for joining Wong is because he likes murdering people, taking joy in destroying his victims' loved ones and prolonging their agony as much as possible, and being part of the Army gives him the chance to do that without consequences.

* EvenBetterSequel: ''Psychic Force 2012'' further fleshed out the mechanics of the first game and introduced some new ones while being a balanced fighting game. When it came to the home ports' localization, Creator/{{Acclaim}} pretty much learned their lesson and spared everybody from the laughably bad English dubbing of the first game and stuck to the Japanese voices with subtitles instead.

* FoeYay / HoYay: Burn spends 2010 obsessing about Keith; Keith spends 2012 sighing about Burn. In their endings they go all in for [[SayMyName crying out each other's names]] and touchingly [[spoiler:[[DiedInYourArmsTonight dying in each other's arms]]]], the OVA has Keith turning dewy eyes to the camera and saying Burn's name breathlessly ''as the very first scene''... It's no wonder they're one of the easier pairings to find {{doujinshi}} for (although Brad/Wong is surprisingly common, too).

* CultClassic: While not commercially successful at the time of its initial release, the series did manage to gain a strong cult fanbase.



* EvilIsSexy: Subverted. The MsFanservice in this game (Sonia and Regina) are aligned to NOA, who are one of the main villain factions. However, they're not as bad as Wong's Army, which lacks females on top being utterly evil.
