[[folder: Tropes That Apply To Both Series ]]

* AdaptationDisplacement: Wait, the anime is loosely based off of a lesser-known arcade-style third person shooter?
* HoYayShipping: Bob Poundmax and Balladbird Lee seem to be "very close friends".
** There's some slashy implications between Brandon and Harry as well. Arguably more than "some."
** Come to think of it Bunji and Brandon as well.
*** Pick any two guys and you can conceivably see this: Harry and Lee, Cannon Vulcan and Blood War, Bear and... [[{{Squick}} Okay, maybe not Bear.]]
* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Harry shooting an unarmed Brandon after Brandon can't bring himself to shoot Harry.]]
* TheWoobie: Arguably Mika ''and'' Grave.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler: When Brandon gets his revenge, after a long and TEDIOUS fight you're treated with a cutscene, and Harry says that you must finish him off, in a bit of a twist, nothing happens, because it's A GAMEPLAY SITUATION, the camera is put in an angle that looks like a cutscene, so all you have to do is press square, you hear the shot and the screen fades to black]]. [[EarnYourHappyEnding After that, Grave and Mika go out to live in somewhere else.]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwPxxLpS_ss Here Comes The Rain]]
* DisappointingLastLevel: In both games.
* ItsEasySoItSucks / ItsShortSoItSucks: A common complaint of the original game, though it was still praised for its aesthetics.
* SoBadItsGood: On one hand, the name Rocketbilly Redcadillac is trying so hard to be awesome that it's just stupid. On the other hand, it's so stupid that it loops back around to awesome again.
* ThatOneBoss: Bunji in the first game, the robotic tanks in the second game.


[[folder: Tropes That Apply To The Anime ]]

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The ending theme "Akaneiro ga Moeru Toki".
* NightmareFuel: [[spoiler: That Necrolyzed dog really looked like something out of a ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' game. Brrr!]]
* TearJerker: From beginning to end.
