Equipped with the "Time Flow Engine" into the Excellence, the three ally with the [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Nadesico B]] or the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Ra Cailum]], hoping to promote their machine for funding towards further development. However, a mysterious being named Duminuss wishes to use the Engine for its own purposes. Things take a turn for the worse when Raul/Fiona are accidentally sent to the past during a scuffle with Duminuss, where they have to make a decision to let history flow as it is or attempt to correct the events leading to the present, in order for a better future.

----
Tropes pertaining to ''Super Robot Wars Reversal'' are:

* BackFromTheDead
** One [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQeyQCigioc notable accomplishment]] by one of Duminuss' homunculus, Despinis, is she's the one responsible of utilizing the [[MobileFighterGGundam Devil Gundam Cells]] to resurrect [[spoiler:[[MobileFighterGGundam Master Asia]]]] from the dead and use him as a slave. [[spoiler:Master Asia]] would be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rcl5efXw6Y&feature=relmfu freed]] from her control after he's defeated by the Round Knights as well as receiving a heavy dose of [[GetterRobo Getter Rays]] from the awakened [[GetterRobo Shin Getter]].
** [[GetterRobo Emperor Gore]] does this too, since the ''Shin Getter Vs. Neo Getter'' plot is required.
* ChestBlaster: Mazinger Z's "Breast Fire", Great Mazinger's "Breast Burn", Shin Getter Robo's "Getter Beam"
* CombinationAttack
** "[[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning Choudenji Spin V no Jigiri]]" (Combattler V and Voltes V)
** "Double God Finger" ([[MobileFighterGGundam God Gundam and Nobel Gundam]]), "[[KamehameHadoken Double Sekiha Tenkyoken]]" (God Gundam and [[MobileFighterGGundam Master Gundam]]), "[[ThePowerOfLove Love Love Finger]]" (God Gundam and [[MobileFighterGGundam Shining Gundam]]), and "Shuffle Alliance Fist" (God Gundam, [[MobileFighterGGundam Gundam Maxter, Dragon Gundam, Gundam Rose and Bolt Gundam]])
** "Buttercup Formation" ([[MartianSuccessorNadesico Aestivalis-Ryoko, Aestivalis-Hikaru and Aestivalis-Izumi]]) and "Double Gekigan Flare" ([[MartianSuccessorNadesico Aestivalis-Akito and Aestivalis-Gai]])
** "Double Burning Fire", "Double Mazinger Blade" and "Double Mazinger Punch" (Mazinger Z and Great Mazinger)
*** "Final Dynamic Special" ([[GetterRobo Shin Getter Robo-1]], Great Mazinger and Mazinger Z)
** "Double G-Bits" and "[[WaveMotionGun Double Satellite Cannon]]" ([[AfterWarGundamX Gundam X and Gundam Double X]])
** "Sun Moon Attack" (Daitarn 3 and Zambot 3)
* CombiningMecha: [[GetterRobo Neo Getter Robo]], Shin Getter, Combattler V, Voltes V, [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam Double X with G-Falcon]]
* DegradedBoss: The [[MobileFighterGGundam Devil Gundam]] and its 3 forms and the [[MobileFighterGGundam Grand Master Gundam]]
* DoingItForTheArt: Late in ''Reversal'' the Nadesico crew will upgrade to their ''Prince Of Darkness'' mecha. As [[MartianSuccessorNadesico Gai Daigouji]] doesn't appear in TheMovie, he is given a "Super Aestivalis" with his TV series Aestivalis' monoeye head.
* {{Evil Knockoff}}s: Mass-produced Great Mazingers, fake Combattler Vs and Devil Aestivalises
* FixFic: ''Reversal'' prevents the {{Downer Ending}}s of some shows, the fictional downers of events that are supposed to come to a good end, and averting [[spoiler:[[MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack the drop of Axis]], the DownerEnding of ''Zambot 3'' and the ''Prince of Darkness'' plot]].
* GiantRobotHandsSaveLives: Implied in one scenario where [[{{Zambot 3}} Killer the Butcher]] decides to recreate Galileo's famous gravity experiment using [[MobileSuitGundamWing Relena Darlian]] and an Earth Federation soldier as the dropped objects. No points for guessing which [[TheStoic Stoic]] {{Badass}} HitmanWithAHeart comes sweeping in to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7B4uk1sbyA save them]].
* GratuitousEnglish: Courtesy of [[GetterRobo Jack and Mary King]], no less
* GunsAkimbo: [[GetterRobo Texas Mack]]
* MagikarpPower: In [=SRW=], there are only two ways to recover energy - the typical method via an allied unit with the "resupply" unit ability or returning to a battleship to recharge. However, near the end of ''Reversal'', if [[GearFighterDendoh Gear Fighters Dendoh or Ogre]] defeat the final enemy of their series three times in a row, it will unlock a new form for both machines which completely recharges their energy every turn. Additionally, gettiing this final form grants Dendoh a new, powerful attack in its base form that can be used for a pittance compared to its other finishers.
* PostScriptSeason: For ''G Gundam'', as the [[TournamentArc Gundam Fight]] has already ended and Master Asia is dead.
* PutOnABus: [[MartianSuccessorNadesico Akatsuki Nagare]] and the [[GreatMazinger Seven Mycene Generals]] are not present in ''Reversal''
* RedemptionDemotion: It's possible to recruit Ogre to the party and this trope is played straight via its stats. However, during a route split, if the player chooses to fight the BrainwashedAndCrazy [[spoiler:[[GearFighterDendoh Hokuto]]]] using the Ogre, post-battle he returns to the party, yet the Ogre has the same stats it had before as an enemy unit, thereby averting this.
* {{Robeast}}: [[CombattlerV Slave Beasts]], [[GetterRobo Mechasauruses]], [[{{Zambot3}} Mecha Boosts]], [[VoltesV Beast Fighters]] and [[GreatMazinger Warrior Beasts]].
* RocketPunch: Mazinger Z's "Rocket Punch", Neo Getter-1's "Chain Knuckle", Zambot 3's "Arm Punch" and Great Mazinger's "Atomic Punch" and "Drill Pressure Punch"
* RuleSixtyThree: Variation; Raul and Fiona are essentially the SpearCounterpart and DistaffCounterpart of the same person for ''Reversal''. When they are included in ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Original Generation}}s'', they're brought in as HalfIdenticalTwins.
* ScrewDestiny: What happens in the finale of ''Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz'' and ''Zambot 3''. [[spoiler:Raul/Fiona suffer a HeroicBSOD and are not involved when the [[MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz Mariemaia Rebellion]] is underway (in Raul's case, he is, though half-heartedly). However, when Killer the Butcher appears, Raul/Fiona decide enough's enough and take destiny in his/her own hands]].
* ScrewYourself: There's plenty of Raul/Fiona imagery from [=SRW=] fans. Naturally, this goes to {{Twincest}} levels in ''Original Generation''.
* SequentialBoss: Duminuss, Dangel in Scenario 13 of the Nadesico Route and [[GreatMazinger Ankoku Daishogun]] in Scenario 24
* SphereOfDestruction: The unlockable "Stoner Sunshine" attack for the Shin Getter
* SpiritualSuccessor: A loose example - ''Reversal'' and ''Alpha Gaiden'' uses TimeTravel as a PlotPoint, but the former sends the protagonist to the past and the latter takes them to a BadFuture.
* SuperMode: Shining Gundam's "Super Mode", God Gundam's "Meikyou Shisui", Mazinger Z and Great Mazinger's "Mazin Power", Neo Getter Robo-2's "Neo Getter Vision", Shin Getter Robo's "God Getter Mode" and the [[MobileSuitGundamWing Wing Gundam Zero Custom's]] "Zero System"
* SwissArmyWeapon, MechaExpansionPack: The Excellence has the ability to change into a variety of frames suited for different forms of combat and terrain. They include "Cosmodiver" (space), "Striker" (melee), "Gunner" (long-range), "Flyer" (air) and "Diver" (water). The final frame, depending on the chosen protagonist, is the "Lightning" (Raul) and "Eternal" (Fiona). The Aestivalis also have ground assault, aerial, artillery,and space combat frames.
* ThisIsADrill: Neo Getter-2 and Shin Getter-2
* TheUnfought: [[GreatMazinger Yami No Teiou]]
* TimeTravel
* [[WaveMotionGun Wave Motion]] {{BFG}}s" Gundam X and Gundam Double X's Satellite Cannon, Zambot 3's "Ion Cannon" and Wing Gundam Zero Custom's "Twin Buster Rifle"
* VillainTeamUp: Duminuss works with the [[GearFighterDendoh Galfa]], [[{{Zambot 3}} Gaizok]] and the [[AfterWarGundamX Frost Brothers]]
