* RetroactiveRecognition: After years of Creator/TomokazuSugita shaping himself up as the ur-DeadpanSnarker voice actor (like [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Kyon]] and {{Manga/Gintama}}) and a lot of {{Badass}} roles (such as [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Ragna the Bloodedge]]), it'll be a surprise that Bullet is one of his earlier roles, and he's more or less a meek, occasionally shy everyday guy who's often the ButtMonkey.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Keisar Ephes]] from the third game, [[TheManBehindTheMan true ruler of the Balmarrian Empire]], was [[FallenHero once a great hero]] who [[SatanicArchetype succumbed to darkness]] and became one of the most evil beings in the ''Super Robot Wars''franchise. Known then as Augustus, Keisar Ephes allowed sacrifices in his name, [[YourSoulIsMine devouring the souls]] of those given to him. Initiating the invasion of Earth, Keisar Ephes continued to devour the souls of the fallen before finally revealing himself and his true plans: to destroy the heroes and consume their souls as well before [[OmnicidalManiac annihilating the entire universe]] and recreating it as a place of eternal suffering where he could lord over his victims [[AGodAmI like a God]].

* {{Promoted Fan|boy}}girl: Natsuki Katou, the voice actress for [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha3 Luria Kayitz]] in ''Alpha 3'', admitted to being a big fan of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing New Mobile Report Gundam Wing]]'' in general, specifically [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Heero Yuy]]. This is why Heero and Luria have a special battle quote together, despite little to no meaningful interaction between the two within the game itself.

** The Aura Battler {{Mook}}s in ''Alpha''; all come with an "Aura Barrier" that can absorb a fair amount of beam-type damage. This isn't so much of a concern early in the game, but when stronger Aura Battler units appear late-game, they come bundled with a fair rating of armor. As the absorption is calculated ''after'' damage reduction from armor, this means hurting even grunts, never mind Aura Battler boss units, with beam weaponry can become annoying. Unfortunately, this leads to another problem: most Aura Battler {{Mook}}s are "S" size. The best units for clearing them out would be [[{{Gundam}} Mobile Suits]], but they can't damage them reliably. This forces players to either use {{Super Robot}}s, while others must invest Spirit Points into Spirit Commands like "Strike", lean ''real'' hard on the ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' and ''Anime/AuraBattlerDunbine'' units, or just pray the LevelScaling in damage is faster for allied units than {{Mook}}s.

** The SegaDreamcast version of ''Alpha'' has an odd bug where unit "Limit" is disregarded - it doesn't actually limit anything. The only reason to upgrade it is to get the "Full Upgrade Bonus".

** There's a funny little infinite cash bug in Scenario 58 of ''Alpha'' (SonyPlayStation version only), where if the Spirit Command "Provoke" is used on Tashiro, every move allied units make will rake in roughly 50,000 credits until someone attacks a target. By the end of a player turn, expect a metric asston of credits.
