* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The entire planet Atreim. Mist describes it as a peaceful utopia, but also states that despite '''2000 years''' of peace, it had a defense force even LARGER than Earth's. That means their defense force is bigger than [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny OMNI Enforcer]] and [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Neo U.N. Army]] put together. This, coupled with the fact that Mist was a rookie member of the defense force, yet he mentioned that he was quite used to '''riot suppression''', begs the quesiton: Was Atreim really a utopia, or was it a 1984-esque police state?

** Of the equippable parts available in ''K'', "Orgone Cloud" is probably the best one[[note]]Unit gains "Double Image" (at 130 Will, gain a 50% chance of evading any attack), a large "Barrier" (reduce damage taken by 2000 points), small EN regeneration (10% per turn) and ignores terrain penalties[[/note]]. Although it's available on the fifth playthrough of the game, players can easily acquire it on the first playthrough by inserting a ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment'' cartridge into the NintendoDS GameBoyAdvance slot.

* MemeticMutation: Some of [[TheScrappy Mist Rex]]'s badly written lines have become memes in the Japanese SRW fandom.
** "I've arrived at the church!"[[labelnote:note]]Spoken when he arrives at [[Anime/ShinkonGattaiGodannar Go's wedding]], even though there's nobody around to hear him at all.[[/labelnote]]
** "Indeed, if we intervene, we can stop the conflict for now. But doing this wouldn't resolve the underlying problem, would it?"[[labelnote:note]]While technically true, he says this while the citizens of Berlin are being '''slaughtered''' by the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Earth Alliance]] and the Archangel is en route to rescue them.[[/labelnote]]
** "Ugh! Calm down! Don't be provoked by that kind of taunting!"[[labelnote:note]]While being taunted by the enemy, looks like Mist has finally matured a bit...[[/labelnote]]
*** "Ahhhhhhhhhh! [[LeeroyJenkins *Charges enemy*]]"[[labelnote:note]]...Or not. *Proceeds to get the crap beaten out of him by the enemy*[[/labelnote]]
** "What a fun party..."[[labelnote:note]]Spoken at the post-campaign celebration, after [[spoiler:[[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Soushi Minashiro]] [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificed himself to kill]] the final boss that destroyed Altreim]][[/labelnote]]
*** This line actually became an AscendedMeme when the official Twitter account of Super Robot Wars joked that "Saying 'What a fun party...' in the comments is forbidden" when celebrating the five years anniversary of K's release.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Largely ''Gundam SEED Destiny'' characters; not only is Kira Yamato more reasonable (who doesn't attack the player's team on sight, but agrees to join them) and Cagalli's {{Chickification}} completely nullified, but ''K'' goes out of its way to make [[TheScrappy Yuuna]] [[RomanticFalseLead Roma]] [[ButtMonkey Seinan]] less of a coward and more affectionate towards Cagalli, to the point where [[spoiler:he acknowledges his faults and steps aside when Cagalli forcibly takes command of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Orb]]. Yuuna actually manages to [[SparedByTheAdaptation live through the Battle of Orb]], on top of this]]. Unfortunately, the same can't really be said about the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny ZAFT]] characters (with the exception of Athrun Zala and maybe Heine Westenfluss).
* TheScrappy: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsK Mist Rex]] is, beyond the shadow of a doubt, '''THE''' most hated [=SRW=] protagonist ever (and the second-most despised character period, just after [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Lee]] [[TheNeidermeyer Linjun]] (or third, after [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Wilhelm von]] [[BigBadWannabe Juergen]]). He spends most of ''K'' complaining about how much better his homeworld of Atreim is than Earth, acts like an asshole to cast over the party's character flaws (berating [[Anime/ShinkonGattaiGodannar Go Saruwatari]] for his women troubles, telling [[Anime/GunXSword Van]] to get over his bride-to-be's death, insulting Kira's idealistic pacifism, and denigrating inexperienced pilots like [[Anime/OvermanKingGainer Gainer Sanga]], [[Anime/ZoidsGenesis Ruuji Familion]], and [[Anime/GaikingLegendOfDaikuMaryu Daiya Tsuwabuki]]). The ultimate expression of this is his reaction to the ending as a fun adventure, completely glossing over [[spoiler:[[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Soushi Minashiro]]]] and his actions, who [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice sacrificed himself to ultimately destroy]] the EldritchAbomination BigBad that was ''RESPONSIBLE FOR ALTREIM'S DESTRUCTION'']]. Made worse by the fact that a lot of his attitude is [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical]], such as one ending putting him in a harem situation after insulting Go for the very same reasons, or some instances where he [[LeeroyJenkins recklessly charges at Edax forces and gets his ass handed to him]], after berating other people for doing just that. Japan has a fandom [[MemeticMutation meme]] involving photoshopping Mist and his mecha into announced [=SRWs=] to screw with other fans.
* ScrappyMechanic: Many players consider the "Partner Battle" system useless, especially when standard {{Mook}}s later in the game have access to "Combo Attack". Also, partnering two units prevents the use of "Combo Attack", further discouraging the system. Those who ''do'' want to use the "Partner Battle" system find it does have some uses, such as always having [[CombiningMecha mecha in range of each other to combine]] or easier access to {{Combination Attack}}s. Ultimately, it's a question of weighing the benefits of these vs. being able to use a "Combo Attack". These are largely the reasons why the system is revamped in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL''.
** Following the release of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ'', installments began standardizing many gameplay mechanics, such as "evasion decay"[[note]]As a unit is attacked, its evasion rate decreases every time it is targeted[[/note]], raising the cost of Spirit Commands and balancing individual Will gains. The one gripe players have with ''K'' regarding standardization are terrain rankings on units. First, ''K'' goes with the idea that if a series is never set in space, it cannot have more than rank of "B" in space. This is fine until players realize that Anime/MazingerZ, who was never been in space, gets a rank of "A". This also extends to the [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Fafners]], while the [[Anime/GunXSword Dann of Thursday]] (who not only fought in space, but fought to a draw against the [[Anime/GunXSword Saudade of Sunday]], an Armor built for space combat) gets a "B". Secondly, despite the primary units from ''Anime/ShinkonGattaiGodannar'' fighting somewhat often in water, and the Fafners originating from an ''island'', none of them have a better rank of "B" in water (the exceptions are the [[Anime/ShinkonGattaiGodannar Cosmo Diver]], a dedicated underwater/space unit, and one of the unlockable Fafner units).

*** Scenario 6 kicks off the ''Anime/GunXSword'' plot, only Van is attacked by a lot of [[Anime/GaikingLegendOfDaikuMaryu Darius Empire]] {{Mook}}s. The player must ensure Van survive s for two turns until the [[Anime/GaikingLegendOfDaikuMaryu Daikuu Maryu]] appears to aid him, which is easier said than done.
*** Scenario 7 is a mix of the two before: it begins with the Dann of Thursday, the [[Anime/GunXSword El Dora]] [[CombiningMecha V]] (unfortunately, it's an EN guzzler), the [[Anime/GunXSword Brow]][[CombatMedic nie]] and Mist being attacked by a bunch of ''King Gainer'' grunts and bosses (again). A few turns later, the rest of the party arrives, only enemies also get two tough bosses as reinforcements - [[Anime/OvermanKingGainer Cynthia Lane]] and [[Anime/GunXSword Ray Lundgren]]. Like Brunhilde in scenario 5, they only attack the party, despite neither of them being aligned with the [[Anime/OvermanKingGainer Siberian Railroad]].
*** Finally, scenario 8 is MORE ''Overman King Gainer'' bosses/{{Mook}}s, plus Cynthia again, and the [[Anime/GunXSword Diablo of Monday]]. This scenario's slighty easier, but if players want the ''Anime/GunXSword'' {{Secret Character}}s, [[GuideDangIt Van must destroy the Diablon]] or they're LostForever. Fortunately, after all this hell, Scenario 9 is an easy BreatherLevel.
** Any ''VideoGame/VirtualOn''-based scenarios: the first two are long and boring, set in corridors against {{Mook}}s with MAP weapons, while the last one is on an open field with more grunts and EliteMooks with huge HP pools and the "Combo Attack" pilot skill, allowing them to crush the player's support units.

** In one ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDCE73Stargazer'' scenario, players must prevent any enemy unit from reaching a certain point...[[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE]]. This sort of mission objective isn't a problem, except many series and their respective mecha in this game don't go into space from their home series, meaning they're stuck with a relatively low rank of "B" for terrain (see ScrappyMechanic above). To emphasize, even a LightningBruiser like the King Gainer can easily get hit and often miss in space.
* [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot They Wasted A Perfectly Good Appearance]]: Despite the proper [=SRW=] appearance of ''Godannar'' (the series made its debut in ''Super Robot Wars Scramble Comannder 2''), units like the Goddinner, Genesister and Volspinner do not make an appearance, let alone even be mentioned in ''K''. However, thir pilots ''do'' make appearances during the intermission, just not their machines.

*** Scenario 5 pits players against every named villain in the first half of ''OvermanKingGainer'', including [[OvermanKingGainer Brunhilde]], who in-series attacked friends and foes alike, yet in ''K'' only attacks the ''players' units''. Fortunately, only Brunhilde needs to be destroyed, except it has 10000+ {{Hit Point}}s (at Scenario 5, no less), and there are around 7-8 FragileSpeedster {{Flunky Boss}}es attacking the party at the same time.

* TheScrappy: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsK Mist Rex]] is, beyond the shadow of a doubt, '''THE''' most hated [=SRW=] protagonist ever (and the second-most despised character period, just after [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Lee]] [[TheNeidermeyer Linjun]] (or third, after [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Wilhelm von]] [[BigBadWannabe Juergen]]). He spends most of ''K'' complaining about how much better his homeworld of Atreim is than Earth, acts like an asshole to cast over the party's character flaws (berating [[Anime/ShinkonGattaiGodannar Go Saruwatari]] for his women troubles, telling [[Anime/GunXSword Van]] to get over his bride-to-be's death, insulting Kira's idealistic pacifism, and denigrating inexperienced pilots like [[Anime/OvermanKingGainer Gainer Sanga]], [[Anime/ZoidsGenesis Ruuji Familion]], and [[Anime/{{Gaiking}} Daiya Tsuwabuki]]). The ultimate expression of this is his reaction to the ending as a fun adventure, completely glossing over [[spoiler:[[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Soushi Minashiro]]]] and his actions, who [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice sacrificed himself to ultimately destroy]] the EldritchAbomination BigBad that was ''RESPONSIBLE FOR ALTREIM'S DESTRUCTION'']]. Made worse by the fact that a lot of his attitude is [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical]], such as one ending putting him in a harem situation after insulting Go for the very same reasons, or some instances where he [[LeeroyJenkins recklessly charges at Edax forces and gets his ass handed to him]], after berating other people for doing just that. Japan has a fandom [[MemeticMutation meme]] involving photoshopping Mist and his mecha into announced [=SRWs=] to screw with other fans.

*** Scenario 6 kicks off the ''Anime/GunXSword'' plot, only Van is attacked by a lot of [[Anime/{{Gaiking}} Darius Empire]] {{Mook}}s. The player must ensure Van survive s for two turns until the [[Anime/{{Gaiking}} Daikuu Maryu]] appears to aid him, which is easier said than done.
