''Black Rock Shooter: The Game'' is a 2011 PSP {{Spinoff}}, developed by Creator/{{Imageepoch}}, based off the ''Franchise/BlackRockShooter'' character and franchise. It can best be described as a hybrid RPG[=/=]ThirdPersonShooter game.

In the year 2051, [[AfterTheEnd humanity is on the verge of extinction]] following an alien invasion that started nearly fifteen years ago. With their backs to the wall, [[LaResistance the last twelve humans]] awaken a mysterious SuperSoldier known as "BRS" (or "Stella") as part of their [[DoNotGoGentle last desperate push against the alien menace]].

The game features an [[AllStarCast all-star Japanese voice cast]], including Creator/MaayaSakamoto (as BRS), Creator/TomokazuSugita, Creator/HiroshiKamiya, Creator/MiyukiSawashiro, Creator/MaiNakahara and many more. The music is composed by ManabuNamiki.

Creator/NipponIchi licensed the game for release in English. After over a year of waiting and numerous rumours that the game had become VaporWare, it was finally released on the Playstation Store in the US and EU with the original Japanese voice cast.

!!Tropes found in this game:
* AdvancingBossOfDoom
* AerithAndBob: Range from Bob, Hassan, Alexei, Xiao Ming; to Phobos, Rothcol, Black★Rock Shooter; to MEFE, LLWO, and XNFE. There are some justifications about the alien's name, but have you ever met a guy named ''Rothcol''?
** It's revealed in chapter 2 that Rothcol is his last name and Phobos is a code name he prefers to go by.
* AfterTheEnd: The alien invasion has decimated Earth.
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: [[FanService Not that anyone is complaining]].
* {{Angst}}:
--> '''Gray''': So you have forgotten everything, including The Professor's affection for you. Unlike you, The Professor didn't even give me a name. I'm not a beloved like you.
--> '''B★RS''': I'm... sorry.
--> '''Gray''': Don't be. Otherwise... I won't be able to forgive you. Come over here. *cue a scene of B★RS and Gray [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything on the bed]]*
* ArcWords: ''TheGame''.
* TheAssimilator: The aliens' custom of "neblading", which essentially means to consume another living being and absorb their memories. [[spoiler:It's actually the crux of the entire plot]].
* AvengingTheVillain: LLWO for MEFE.
* AwesomeButImpractical: The ultimate Blade skill BB Genocide is mostly this. It boasts massively improved damage compared to its predecessor, the Iksa Blade, and also hits all enemies. However, it still only deals maximum damage to stunned enemies, the same quirk that Blade Kill and Iksa Blade had, and the only other skill that inflicts Stun is the Snipe skills, which only hit single enemies (and the stun wears off fairly quickly anyways). Combined with a cooldown time of ''three minutes'' in a game where most battles don't last half as long, it's more or less a glorified Hammer skill (also hits all enemies, but for normal damage) save for boss battles.
* BackFromTheBrink: The trailer shows awakened B★RS fighting alien robot alongside human soldiers.
* BadassArmy: The Earth defense force took ''eight'' out of the 15 Apostles. Considering [[AfterTheEnd the kind of the story]], that's quite an achievement.
* BadassGrandpa: SAHA.
* [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace BRS Can Breathe In Outer Space]].
* {{BFS}}: MZMA.
* BlackMagicianGirl: MEFE.
* [[spoiler:BittersweetEnding: In NewGamePlus, finishing the "?"-marked missions makes Nana survive. Humankind still goes extinct, though.]]
* CatchPhrase: Rothcol's "Tally, ho!"
* [[spoiler:CloningBlues: B★RS and Nana Gray.]]
* ClothingDamage: The Lost All costume. [[spoiler:You get it when, well, all is lost.]]
* ColourfulThemeNaming: ''Black''★Rock Shooter, Nana ''Gray'', ''White'' Rock Shooter.
* CoolBike: The Pigee Ninja. Despite its [[{{Narm}} ridiculously lame name]], it's extremely similar to the one in the original B★RS PV.
** Renamed to Black Trike in the translation. Better than Piggy Ninja, at least. It's lampshaded too, since the mission is still named "Operation Piggy Ninja", and there's a dialogue option to be confused by the strange name.
* CoolPlane: The Draco. Which is like a huge, carbon-steel composite stealth bomber.
* [[spoiler:DownerEnding: Oh sure, the world is saved from the aliens, but by that point it's pointless because humankind is extinct. And B★RS is doomed to spend the rest of her life alone. [[AWinnerIsYou Mission Clear!]]]]
** [[spoiler:The ecosystem gets better, if the couple of polar bears is any indication.]]
*** [[spoiler:It probably is. According to the events, it said that polar bears went extinct before the invasion, yet we find them here. Which could mean that BRS and the other humans were wrong about being the only ones left and there are probably more still out there.]]
* EmotionlessGirl: Even the Seven Apostles has more range of emotion than B★RS. And they are ''the bad guys''.
* EscortMission: One of [[spoiler: Nana EX missions.]] If an enemy, ANY enemy touches the escortee, [[WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou it's instant Game Over]]. Also made more aggravating by the fact that [[spoiler: Nana is faking insanity and [[TooDumbToLive walks straight into enemies while weaponless]].]]
* FiveBadBand: The five characters shown fighting B★RS in the trailer. Dead Master is nowhere to be seen. They are actually called the ''Seven'' Apostles.
** MEFE, MZMA, SZZU and CKRY, XNFE, LLWO, SAHA - Seven in total. But still, if there were 15 with the invasion, not sure why only these Seven were important enough to be named like that.
*** If we put it this way, [[spoiler: along with White Rock Shooter]]:
** [[spoiler: BiggerBad and TheManBehindTheMan: White Rock Shooter]]
** BigBad: SAHA, he was said to be the leader.
** TheDragon: XNFE, she carried out at least some of the major attacks during the invasion.
** TheEvilGenius: SZZU, she is apparently the only one who's smart enough to understand humans and their emotions.
** [[TheBrute The Brutes]]: CKRY, all that he says are grunts and roars. Which SZZU ''somehow'' can understand. And MZMA, who likes to boast and fight recklessly.
** [[TheDarkChick The Dark Chicks]]: MEFE and LLWO
* FlatWhat: The perfect description for B★RS's face when she obeys Nana's orders to "Say woof."
* FlunkyBoss: The Generators, but the most notable instance is XNFE and her goddamned flying bunny-eared shoot-y pink triangle drones which she throws at you ad hominem.
* GracefulLoser: WRS.
* HealThyself: In this case, {{Hand Wave}}d as "nanomachines".
* IdolSinger: Sing Love [[spoiler: AKA White Rock Shooter]].
* KamehameHadoken
* [[spoiler:KillEmAll: The PSS. And by "all", it means that at the end of The Game, B★RS is the only surviving humanoid being in the entire world.]]
* KillerRabbit: XNFE. [[spoiler:''[[KillEmAll Massacre]]'' rabbit.]]
* KillItWithFire: MZMA's power.
* LaResistance: PSS, of which B★RS is a member/ultimate weapon.
* [[LastOfHisKind Last Of Their Kind]]: B★RS and eleven others are the only ones left to fight off their attackers.
* MaleGaze: The instance this happens is when MEFE appears and the camera zooms at her nice buttocks.
** There are several short shots of B★RS in this situation when she's unleashing various skills. Her Blade attacks in particular would like to remind the player that ShesGotLegs.
* MeaningfulName: Would you believe me that B★RS's real name is [[spoiler:Stella]].
* MechaMooks: The Armaments.
* {{Meganekko}}: SZZU.
* [[spoiler:TheMole: Nana Gray.]]
* NewGamePlus: [[spoiler: It's also required to get the better ending.]]
* NighInvulnerability: B★RS can survive lasers, energy bullets, ordinary bullets, missiles, blade slashes, body slams of 3-meter-tall MechaMooks, crashing at 300 kmph into said mooks...
* OneWingedAngel: WRS.
* PaletteSwap: White Rock Shooter
* PowerArmor: SZZU and CKRY. They are siblings.
* TheProfessor: Prof. Gibson, the [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Dr. Light]]-esque creator of both Gray and B★RS.
* QuickTimeEvent, also a form of FinishHim.
* RoaringRampageOfRescue: The latter part of the game. [[spoiler:It doesn't work. At least during the first time.]]
* SealedBadassInACan: B★RS seems to be one in the game.
* SevenDeadlySins: To a surprise, each of the Apostles are these.
** MEFE is quite '''Lustful''' towards young girls.
** MZMA has the '''Pride''' of a [[SmallNameBigEgo Ted Baxter]]. Sort of, he's second weakest.
** SZZU rides on CRKY, giving her the sin of '''Sloth'''.
** CKRY, implied to have eaten MZMA, is '''Gluttony'''.
** Being the smallest and needing the bunny turrets to move a reasonable speed, XNFE is appropriately '''Envy'''.
** With MEFE dead, LLWO goes out in '''Wrath'''.
** And finally, SAHA is '''Greed'''. Since he's king.
* SevenIsNana Gray.
* [[spoiler:ShaggyDogStory]]
* ShutUpHannibal: B★RS delivers one to XNFE. "Shut yer trap, alien!"
* SmallGirlBigGun: And how.
* SuperMode
* ATasteOfPower: In the very first battle, A practically uber powered B★RS (complete with a few upgraded skills) faces off against Dead Master, which can hardly scratch her.
* TimedMission: In Fuji Forest, where you have to rush to [[spoiler:save Nana]].
* TheUnfavourite: Nana Gray believes herself to be one, since Prof. Gibson didn't give her a proper name. [[spoiler:He did, Nana is the name given to her. It's all a tragic misunderstanding.]]
* TheUnpronouncable: The names of the Seven Apostles are MEFE[[spoiler:/Mii]], MZMA[[spoiler:/Mazuma]], XNFE[[spoiler:/Nafe]], SZZU[[spoiler:/Shizu]], CKRY[[spoiler:/Kaarii]], LLWO[[spoiler:/Ririo]], and SAHA. Whew!
* UndergroundMonkey: Most enemies have at least two stronger recolors of themselves found in later levels.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: Pretty much ''everyone''! AllAccordingToPlan by White Rock herself.]]
* WhatTheHellHero
* YouHaveFailedMe: XNFE got this treatment.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: LLWO to [[spoiler:[[TheMole Nana]]]].
