* CultClassic: Now going five games strong, and none of them have had a particularly strong following.
* TheScrappy: Nicole, Nicole, Nicole.
* ScrappyMechanic: The first game's save files eat up ''9'' blocks. That's 3/5ths of an entire memory card.
* SpecialEffectFailure: The "Help Cry" mask in ''Invitation to Darkness'' had its texture applied incorrectly. See [[http://www.nastyprisms.com/temp/cache/lparchive.org/Tecmos-Deception/Update%203/25-ePSXe_2007-04-30_18-46-19-59.jpg here]].
* UnfortunateImplications: The transition over the series from male to strictly female leads. Is Tecmo accidentally making some commentary that women cannot directly protect themselves as warriors, and that men wouldn't be "fighting dirty" this way? You decide.
