* AlternateCharacterInterpretation - Lots of it when it comes to Isamu and Guld, especially when TheMovie casts a somewhat different light on both of them. The film casts Isamu more as an outright JerkAss than a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, Guld seems a bit less of a StalkerWithACrush toward Myung, and more of their friendship is revealed via flashbacks.
* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain]]: [[spoiler: Sharon]].
* CrazyAwesome - Isamu. [[spoiler:Anything you can do, I can do better. While upside down.]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome - Pretty much everything. This is YokoKanno we're dealing with here.
* DemonicSpiders - The Ghost X9 in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' has become the go-to example of SRW DemonicSpiders.
* EarWorm: Any song sung by Sharon Apple.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Isamu and Guld due to being voiced by Bryan Cranston and Richard Epcar.
* HilariousInHindsight: Completely computer-generated pop singers, [[{{Vocaloid}} you say]]?
** The fact that [[Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle Bryan]] [[Series/BreakingBad Cranston]] plays the protagonist has gotten some shocked reactions of "...''Walt''?" on YouTube.
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames -There was a top-down, vertical-scrolling arcade game. It was a ripoff of the Raiden series of games. And even with the difficulty turned down it was generally on par with ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy''.
** Averted by the playstation version, it's half a stylized flight sim with quick time events and half virtual on clone also with quick time events. it was a pretty good game overall.
