** Instead of its theme, Anime/TheBigO uses "Sure Promise", a just-as-awesome background track to battle scenes ("Big O!" does kick in, but only when using the "Sudden Impact" attack).

** Aside from the problems with the GameBreakingBug, the [[Anime/{{Macross7}} Protodeviln's powers]] cause all attacks not coming from Fire Bomber members to only do half damage. Adding to that, Fire Bomber members burn through Song Energy very quickly, but there's no way to recover that aside from the standard 5 EN per turn (this is fixed in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Super Robot Wars Alpha 3]]'', but with a different mechanic).
*** On the flip side, ''Destiny'' has the "reduce EN cost by X percent" optional parts, which work on the Sound Force. Judicious use of Armor Breakers and Support Attacks (but not the Direct Attack Spirit Command) will negate the Protodeviln effects.
** Unlike most [=SRWs=], if an attack is strong enough that it'll become a deathblow to an enemy, they are likely to defend it rather than take it head-on - provided that they have shields. Couple this with the fact that some bosses retreat at certain levels of health, and the ridiculously annoying Ruina, it's almost as if the ''Destiny'' AI is DangerouslyGenreSavvy enough to know about the GameBreakingBug. ''Luckily'', this only applies to the initial attack - they won't block if the supporting attack is what'll kill them.
* ThatOneLevel: Scenario 23, where you have to fight several Adrasteas charging a city area and make sure they don't blow up, as per the ''Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam'' storyline. What makes it worse is that the "Mercy" Spirit Command [[note]]If the pilot's next attack would normally destroy the enemy it hits, so long as the user's skill stat (in ''Destiny'', it's pilot level) is higher than the enemy's, that enemy's HP is reduced to 10[[/note]] does not appear in ''Destiny'' AND unit weapon upgrades are linked (i.e. you can't upgrade them individually), so you're forced to ''carefully'' calculate the amount of damage you do to the Adreasteas so you don't get a game over. On the other hand, the Adrasteas will automatically defend any attack that would normally kill them, making it much easier to cripple them without destroying them. You also need to only bring the three with named pilots down to 20% health. [[GoldenSnitch As soon as you do, the entire group retreats regardless of any other factors to take into consideration]].

** Perfectio fits into this as well. Despite being an EldritchAbomination of the Lovecraftian variety, he still seems to enjoy making everyone suffer and fall into despair, making him similar to Nyarlathotep.
