!!This series provides examples of:
* AscendedFanon: In the first game whenever someone says "Osu" it's always using the Japanese written language, even when an American character says it. In Ouendan 2 whenever an American says "Osu" it is simply spelled "Osu". This is more than likely because most American gamers (including the ones on this wiki) spell the game as "Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan" (as opposed to "Hey! Fight! Cheersquad").
* FanNickname: Encouraging Nobility for the rival Ouendan in the sequel, since their flag has the letters E and N inside a circle. [[spoiler: Sadly, it's most likely just a romanization of the word Ouen (cheer).[[note]]It's still a perfectly valid name though, as the Asahi Ouendan are also known as 高潔の応援団 (lit. "The Noble Ouendan")[[/note]]]]
* HeyItsThatVoice: [[ApolloJustice This isn't the first time that]] Hayato Saionji was a shipping-favourite foreign blond rival to a LargeHam with AnimeHair on a game released for the NintendoDS [[OverlyLongGag in the spring of 2007]].[[note]]Only in the promo, though.[[/note]]
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: After the end credits of Ouendan 2 the words "Thanks for playing!!" are shown in Japanese AND English. This was likely done as a subtle wink to importers.
* NamesTheSame: When we talk about "Believe", we don't mean the one by Cher. Besides, that's already in EliteBeatAgents.
* NoExportForYou: Justified on two counts: 1. The game is tailored to Japanese audiences. 2. There's EBA, the Western counterpart.
** And the DS is region-free. Exports are selling like hotcakes. If you can't find a copy cheap on Website/{{eBay}} right now you may have slipped into a dystopian parallel universe when you weren't looking.
*** And just to sweeten the deal, the game is EXTREMELY easy to play even without knowing a single word of Japanese. Even the stories are easy to follow pretty accurately just from the images.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There was originally one prototype level that featured a man trying to save a puppy from an incoming train [[SoundtrackDissonance to the tune of "Koi no Dance Site"]]. Unfortunately, iNiS didn't think up a fail scenario yet, leading to a FridgeLogic DownerEnding.
* TheWikiRule: http://inis.wikia.com/wiki/INiS_Wiki Unfortunately, nobody does anything with it.
