* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: At the end of the first game, Blank cuts out the sound system so Ulala can't time her counterattacks to the beat. So what happens next? [[CrowdSong Every single person she saved in the game starts singing the main theme of the game acapella]] so she has music to fight with. Doubles as an [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome moment]] and an [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome awesome song]].

** First time you hear "shoot" from the enemies in report 1 of ''Part 1'', it sounds like "Tits", "Kiss" or "Kick".

** First time you hear "shoot" "chu" from the enemies in report 1 of ''Part 1'', it sounds like "Tits", "Kiss" or "Kick"."Kick".
** Part 1 never subtitled or otherwise wrote "chu" in any text, leading a lot of people (including the creators of the YoutubePoop parodies) to think it was "shoot". The GBA version cleared that up, since it needed to replace most of the voiced dialog with text to save cart space.

* AngstWhatAngst: Purge has had a pretty crappy past as a kid, and you'd think that he'd tell someone about it. But then again [[PsychopathicManchild there]] [[DissonantSerenity are reasons]] why he uses this trope. And they are [[NightmareFuel not fun at all.]]

** Pretty much any song could become this.

* FashionVictimVillain: Purge, Purge... what in the world is ''with'' that sleeveless purple disco suit?!
** There's actually a reason for this. The disco suit is made out of purple mirrors. Depending on what version you're playing, it'll tell you that his suit was designed to confuse or BLIND his opponents.
* FoeYay: Remember Blank's line about how he was always watching over Ulala? Well that line's similar to the line on the wallpaper: [[FridgeLogic "I always want you watching over me."]]

* HilariousInHindsight: In 2010, Music/{{Deadmau5}} had created a song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdEs0uvaH38&feature=relmfu "Channel 42"]]. With its [[BuffySpeak techno-y space theme]], you'd be surprised that deadMau5 would name a song after that channel, real or not.



** Part one had some of this considering you can literally play the game for an hour and beat it. However, there is an extra stage that's even ''harder''.
* MemeticMutation: Ulala has sometimes been remixed into challenging other characters to dance battles.

** First time you hear "shoot" from the enemies in report 1 of ''Part 1'', it sounds like "tits".

** In report 4 of ''Part 2'', when cheerleaders say "right", it sounds like "left". During the battle with Purge in the same report, you can hear a lot of "Damn!".
*** Or "Sheet".

*** A lot of lines can be like this because the voices are too quiet to hear.
* NightmareFuel: Blank TV. Yes, that's his [[FridgeHorror BODY]] twisting like that in the monitor.
* PolishedPort: The Steam version of Part 2. Originally falling under PortingDisaster, Sega went out of their way in mid-2014 to fix various dire issues with the game. The launcher no longer has issues saving settings, the entire game can be navigated with a controller, the game shows the correct prompts based on what you choose in the launcher, stability has gotten better, and syncing issues are practically non-existant. It did however remove the Japanese dub, but it was later reinstated along with Japanese FMV's, which the original port lacked. Combine all that together with gorgeous 1080p visuals, and it's by far the definitive version of the game.

** Then, there is the Game Boy Advance version.
* ThatOneBoss: Evila, Giant Evila and Purge the King have made many people toss their controllers.
** The latter two because you have to quite literally do the ''opposite'' of what they tell you to do. And when you're so used to doing ''exactly'' what they say...you can see why people recommend holding the controller upside down. Purge the King also only gives you ''three chances'' to screw up!

controllers.



** The first part of the second level in ''Part one''. You have to rescue the space captain and the other staff members; which gets pretty hard when they send some ''fast'' commands at you. (Players recommend that, unless your thumb goes fast enough across the D-Pad, you use your two fingers)

* ValuesDissonance: Part 2 has this a bit. In the Japanese version, Purge is actually mentally disabled/insane to the point where he can't function in society properly and has delusions that he's a messiah that has to save everyone by dancing. So instead of getting him help like any normal person would, [[WhatTheHellHero Ulala and the rest of the galaxy send him flying into space.]] [[AndThatsTerrible And even for a lighthearted series that shouldn't be taken seriously, that's terrible.]] The US version waters down Purge a bit, and makes him bratty so it feels like he got what he deserved. Arguably a {{Woolseyism}}.

* {{Woolseyism}}: Ulala's name is a localization of Urara (See MeaningfulName), which is a common Japanese name. However, the pronounciation turns it into a pun, since they prounce it as "Ooh-la-la"...which is a phrase that is often uttered by people when they see beautiful women. Conveniently this is part of the game. FridgeBrilliance perhaps?

** Don't forget the PC version of [[SpaceChannel5 Part 2]], the timing is horribly inconsistent and sometimes the game would go out of sync, usually after minimizing it, but sometimes for no reason at all! The Japanese dub can crash the game(especially on report 4), not to mention small stuff like it being a 2011 release with no 1080p option without hacking, and the volume meters being inexplicably stuck inside the game's setup launcher, which not only plays an incredibly loud song every time you open it, but you might have to fiddle with registry entries just to get it to save!
*** The PC port has been fixed as of September 16th, 2014. Syncing and crashing issues are gone, the game now supports 1080p, FXAA, and gamepad prompts by default, and the config launcher no longer plays any music. Audio seems to have also been tweaked somewhat. The Japanese dub is no longer available though.

* NeedsMoreLove: Stop teasing us Sega, and give us a third game already!
** Look on playthroughs of this on Website/YouTube and check the comments. Older comments will ask why Sega didn't make a Wii version; more recent comments will have also expanded it to include the PS3 Move and the Xbox Kinect. (Though most often the Kinect; because a Space Channel 5 Mini-game was released on the Sega-Superstar game for the Eyetoy.)

** Don't forget the PC version of [[SpaceChannel5 Part 2]], the timing would sometimes go off for no reason, the game crashes at certain parts (Such as Report 4) when the voices are set in Japanese and the Japanese cutscenes are missing.
