* Between the ''Neverland'' ship and the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Einst]], not only does the game's plot depend entirely on the events of ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Super Robot Wars Original Generation 2]]'', but the Endless Frontier owes its very ''existence'' to them.

!Tropes

* ActorAllusion: Plentiful, and depends on which character is part of the active party.
** There's a slight chance [[Characters/NamcoXCapcom Reiji Arisu]] will shout "[[Anime/MachineRobo WAIT]]!" (''matte'' in Japanese) when it's his turn during combat. This extends to his appearance in ''EXCEED''.
*** Similarly, if [[Characters/EndlessFrontier Aschen Brodel]] is in the party with Reiji, after all enemies are defeated, she might ask him "What's your name?" (in SurprisinglyGoodEnglish). He'll respond saying "[[CatchPhrase he has no name to give her]]."
** [[Characters/NamcoXCapcom Xiaomu]] might say the traditional CatchPhrase of [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico a certain spaceship girl]] via "Baka baka" when it's her turn.
** In ''EXCEED'', if Xiaomu and [[Characters/EndlessFrontier Aledy Naash]] are part of the party, the former may say "[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Your hand is burning red]]!", with the latter following up with "[[InTheNameOfTheMoon Its loud roar tells me to grasp victory]]!" when all enemies are defeated.
** When summoned by any party member to perform a "Support Attack" in ''EXCEED'', there's a chance Mark Hunter may shout "''[[{{Anime/Dancougar}} Yatte yaruze]]''!"
* NoExportForYou: ''EXCEED''
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: During the 25th anniversary event for ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', it was implied that hadn't Creator/NobuyukiHiyama personally made the request to participate in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'' universe, Haken Browning (and by extension, the ''Endless Frontier'' games) wouldn't have been created. What was his motive? [[Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa It was due]] [[Creator/RyotaroOkiayu to his]] [[Creator/KenyuHoriuchi surrounding friends]] [[Creator/HikaruMidorikawa and peers]] [[DrivenByEnvy all having voiced]] a ''Super Robot Wars'' character while he was the only one who hadn't done one. Hilariously {{Lampshaded}} by Creator/RyotaroOkiayu during the event.
