''Noitu Love'' is a indie game series consisting of two side scrollers developed by Creator/{{Konjak}}.

The first game is a mix of an ActionGame and a PlatformGame. The second one eschews the platform element to make a significantly faster paced ActionGame.

The plot from the games is relatively [[ExcusePlot simple]]. The first game set in TheFuture pits the protagonist, Noitu Love, against MadScientist Darnacus Damnation and his army of MechaMooks, the Grinning Darns. The second game takes place in TheFuture of TheFuture and pits Noitu Love's DistaffCounterpart and ActionGirl Xoda Rap against the Grinning Darns who've mysteriously risen again.

!!This series contains examples of:

* ActionGirl: Xoda Rap
* ActionizedSequel: While both games have a strong emphasis on combat, the first one has a fair amount of puzzle/platforming elements to go with the action, while the sequel is more of a straight BeatEmUp.
* AfterTheEnd: [[spoiler: The sequel.]]
* {{Animesque}}
* {{Animorphism}}: Used in the first game to help Noitu Love get places and defeat bosses.
* AutoScrollingLevel
* BackgroundBoss: Omega Darn in both games.
* BishonenLine: The final boss of Noitu Love 2 crosses it between forms two and three.
* BirdRun: Xoda Rap
* CampGay: Darn Fab. Less so in the second game.
* ChargedAttack: Xoda Rap has two Hold Type attacks.
* DarkActionGirl: Rilo Doppelori [[spoiler: and Tango]]
* [[DistaffCounterpart Distaff]] LegacyCharacter: Xoda to Noitu.
** [[SpearCounterpart Spear]] LegacyCharacter: Almond to Lori.
* EasyModeMockery: The first game ends prematurely on the easiest difficulty level.
* ExcusePlot: both games boil down to "there are bad guys, go kill them". At the end of the second game, Almond points out several remaining questions, then dismisses them with "ah, never mind. Well done, Xoda".
* FlashStep: Xoda can do this, flying through the air if necessary.
* GoshDangItToHeck: PlayedForLaughs. "Grinning Darns" is the name of Darnacus's army.
* HeroicMime: Noitu Love and Xoda Rap
* HumongousMecha: Omega Darn in the first game (he gets scaled down quite a bit in the second game).
* IntentionalEngrishForFunny: "Is Noitu we see! Is going to die!"
* LampshadeHanging: Sergeant Killburne's WeakSpot is a banner that says "weak point".
* MechaMooks
* {{Metaphorgotten}}: At the end of Xoda's Story Mode, the final Boss and our heroes talk about the villain's evil plan, [[spoiler:where Almond says it is Playing God, but the villain retorts that they will Become God, and then goes back to the Heroes' statement, pronouncing, proudly, something along the lines of "It will be Just like playing with myself."]]
* MusicalAssassin: There's a lot of music-themed bosses--the first game has O2Joy and the disco dancer enemies, while the latter has O2Joy again, Darn Fab and The Grinning Four. The only one for whom music plays a role in defeating the boss is O2Joy, however.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler: Tango gives away the locations of the Darn base, sending Xoda there on what is essentially a suicide mission with the intent to be rid of her. Funny thing is, the heroes couldn't have found the base themselves, and the Darns would have eventually destroyed all human resistance.]]
* NonActionGuy: Almond, to the point where (when you play as him) he does nothing except dodge. The mouse cursor can shoot enemies and cause Almond to fly, but neither action appears to be performed by ''him'' on-screen.
* PuzzleBoss: O2-Joy (in both games), and Father Boogie (in the first), Janitor (second game), and almost all the bosses in level 4 of the second game.
* RankInflation
* RapidFireFisticuffs: Your primary attack, though it's much more rapid in the second game.
* RashomonStyle: if you play as Xoda, then in the Japanese level you're ambushed by Doppelori, then when the dragon strikes, she helps you but quickly falls off. If you play as Doppelori, the roles are reversed. On the other hand, in Darnacus's fortress, the ending cutscene for Xoda and Doppelori mesh perfectly (Xoda goes off with Almond, whereas Doppelori goes in the other direction to set the self destruct).
* RobotGirl: Rilo Doppelori. Also, any female-looking Darn.
* RuleOfCool: [[SkySurfing Flying skateboards]], dash kicks starting from mid air, [[SpinAttack spinning somersault kicks]], [[WallJump wall jumps]] etc.
* RuleOfFunny: Almost all of the bosses.
* SdrawkcabName: Noitu Love and Xoda Rap.
* {{Squick}}: In-universe, one of Darnacus's lines after Noitu Love defeats Rilo has this effect on the others.
* SuperDeformed
* ThemeNaming: Tango and Waltz. Pretty much every other enemy is some variation of "Darn Enemy".
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Doppelori states that only Darnacus and his true servants (meaning herself) are allowed to take over the world - this is her reason for stopping [[spoiler:Tango]] from doing that.
* UnusualUserInterface: Okay, so you fire the plane's missiles by evolving into a psychic, pushing two buttons, evolving back into normal, shoot a wind-up gear about a dozen times to make a missile come down, devolving into a monkey and jumping on the button on top of the missile. How realistic!
