->''A little war in the brand-new Earth''
-->-- The opening of ''SUGURI''

''SUGURI'' is a horizontal ShootEmUp for Windows PC developed by the doujin circle of Orange_Juice. It stars the title character, Suguri, a girl armed to the teeth with a variety of powerful weapons working to protect her home world from similarly adorable girls who are under orders to wipe out all life on the planet and take it as their own. The game features an auto-targeting system which allows the player to fire in directions other than the usual "straight ahead", a dashing system which can be used to charge up a Hyper Gauge to unleash a [[LimitBreak Hyper Attack]], a variety of unlockable weapons, and multiple different modes of gameplay.

A sequel, ''Acceleration of SUGURI'', and its {{expansion pack}}, ''Acceleration of SUGURI X-Edition'', were later released in Japan for PC. Unlike its predecessor, ''Acceleration of SUGURI'' is a one-on-one hybrid of a BulletHell shooter and a FightingGame, with both single-player modes with local and online multi-player modes. It features the same cast as the original game, and presents the player with short "WhereAreTheyNow" cutscenes for completing the Arcade Mode for certain characters of the game with a single credit. The ''X-Edition'' expansion pack adds two additional story modes and multiple new characters.

The entire series has been localized to the United States by doujin game publisher Rockin' Android for PC with ''SUGURI - Perfect Edition'' compilation and individually through digital distribution via [=GamersGate=] and [=Direct2Drive=] in 2009. ''Acceleration of SUGURI X-Edition'' was later released for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 by Rockin' Android on February 15th, 2011 as a downloadable game on UsefulNotes/PlayStationNetwork, which features [[ArtShift new character artwork]] by Keiko Sakurai, [[CosmeticAward PlayStation Network Trophies]], and the ability to share replays on Website/YouTube, although it loses its online play unfortunately and certain [[UnlockableContent character unlocking conditions]] where changed for the [=PlayStation=] 3 version due to being a combination of both the base game and the expansion pack.

Rockin' Android later released an [[UpdatedRerelease HD version]] of ''Acceleration of SUGURI X-Edition'' for PC on {{DESURA}} on June 25th, 2012 with the option of using the original or updated [=PlayStation=] Network graphics, higher native resolution, and the online multiplayer absent from [=PlayStation=] Network version. A digitally released compilation of the series along with their original soundtracks, aptly-named ''SUGURI Collection'', was released via [[http://www.ricedigital.co.uk/store/suguri-collection Rice Digital]] and has been [[http://www.steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=105716878 greenlit]] for UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}.

!!The SUGURI series provide examples of:
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Suguri]]
* AfterTheEnd: The story setting of ''SUGURI''. [[spoiler:The planet is just starting to recover after the events from ''VideoGame/{{sora}}''.]]
* AnIcePerson: Kyoko.
* AttackDrone: Laser "bits" are Nanako's primary weapon. Suguri can also use them.
* AxCrazy: Pretty much everyone except [[OnlySaneMan Suguri]].
* BackgroundBoss: Robo in the first game during the second phase of the battle in Stage 6.
* BareYourMidriff: Kae.
* BarrierWarrior: Kyoko specializes in defensive tactics such as setting up barriers around her to [[ReflectingLaser reflect energy-based attacks]] back at her opponents.
* BattleshipRaid: Stage 5.
* BeamSpam: Iru's specialty, although it's not the least bit limited to her.
* BloodKnight: Kae's motivation to fight is mostly having fun with a good battle.
* BoobsOfSteel: Kae. She has a curvaceous and well-endowed figure, and most of the time she fights with her bare hands.
* BossGame: An unlockable Match Mode in the original ''SUGURI'' can be played after clearing the game, in which you face against the all bosses in the game.
* BulletHell: Both games, to a degree.
* ChainPain: Hime uses chains in a couple of her attacks.
* CompilationRerelease: Rockin' Android's ''SUGURI - Perfect Edition'' (retail PC-DVD) and ''SUGURI Collection'' (digitally distributed), compiling the first game and its spin-off along with the games' soundtracks.

* DefeatMeansFriendship: [[spoiler:After defeating Hime in the original game, she becomes friends with Suguri as they make their descent into Earth after stopping Shifu from [[ColonyDrop destroying the planet]].]]
* DifficultButAwesome: Using the flamethrower can be dangerous, because Suguri has to shorten the distance to attack, but, if used correctly, it's a massively powerful weapon.
* DoppelgangerAttack: Kae is capable of using clones of herself to attack her foes.
* FieryRedHead: Kae.
* FinalBoss: Hime in both games (unless you're playing as her ''Acceleration of SUGURI''[='=]s Arcade Mode, then you face Suguri at the last stage).
* FireBreathingWeapon: One of the weapons Suguri can carry is a flamethrower, it has short range, but huge area of effect, easily wiping out any kind of opposition, and taking down the bosses in a matter of seconds.
* HairDecorations: Hime.
* GameplayGrading: In both games, your performance is graded by remaining Armor (life), how quickly you've beaten the stage/opponent, and the damage you've done.
** RankInflation: Your overall performance is graded as such. Ranks go by Rank E, D, C, B, A, S, and [[NoDamageRun P]].

* MagicSkirt: Everyone who wears skirt or dress while having aerial high-speed battles qualifies, as they remain well covered at all times.
* MartialPacifist:
** Hime dislikes fighting if there's no good reason for it, so, when Shifu failed to give her a valid reason to attack Suguri, she turned on him, and escaped the spaceship along with Suguri.
** Suguri counts as well, when she meets the other characters, she tries to dialogue with them before fighting (Even with Shifu, except that he wouldn't listen), and, if ''Acceleration of SUGURI'' is any indication, it worked, because they were all welcomed to Earth, and are close friends to Suguri.

* {{Megane}}: Shifu and [=NoName=].
* {{Meganekko}}: Kyoko.

The ''SUGURI Collection'' via Rice Digital and Steam does the same for digital distribution.
* SecretProjectRefugeeFamily: [[spoiler: Kyoko, Kae, Iru, Saki and Nanako form one of these after the events of ''SUGURI'', living together and helping each other to get used to living on Earth after all that happened to them.]]
* SpreadShot: The aptly-named Spread gun in ''SUGURI''.
* SpritePolygonMix: The backgrounds and some the effects are in 3D while using 2D sprites for the characters and enemies.
* StoneWall: Kyoko's dashing speed isn't as good as the others, but she specializes in defense.

* ZettaiRyouiki: Suguri and Hime are both ranking in at grade-A.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Acceleration Of Suguri]]
* AllJustADream: The "Pudding Deity" storyline was this to Saki.
* ArtShift: The [=PlayStation=] 3 and Steam versions of ''Acceleration of SUGURI X-Edition'' by Rockin' Android, due to Sony's ExecutiveMeddling, the characters are portrayed with more realistic proportions.
* AttackDrone: Nanako still has her laser bits to attack from various angles. Suguri has an alternate form, called Suguri-P, which can also use them.
--> '''Nanako:''' ''"No matter how fast you fly, you can't escape my bits."''
* AttackReflector:
** Kyoko can place crystal barriers that reflect beams back at her opponent, and protect her from missiles for a while.
** Suguri-SP can do it as well, by [[WeaponTwirling twirling]] her daggers in front of her.
* BackgroundBoss: Robo is this full-time as the final boss of "Falling Wonder" story.
* BerserkButton: Suguri didn't like being called a "shorty" by [=NoName=].
* BonusBoss: [[SecretCharacter Sora]], if you can keep an A-Rank average or higher in every single match in Arcade Mode, in a single credit. Defeat her and she's yours.
* CloseRangeCombatant:
** Suguri-SP, who uses a pair of beam daggers to fight, however, her projectiles have limited range, which is a problema if your opponent tries to shoot you from far away, so she relies on close combat as her main method of attack.
** Normal Suguri, Suguri-P and Sora also count to a lesser degree, it's not their main method of attack, but some of their more powerful combos involve using the sword.
** There's also Kae, who has projectiles to protect herself, but she prefers close combat for devastating combos, and to reflect her BloodKnight personality.
* CompetitiveMultiplayer: The VS. Mode, where players can fight against one another or against the computer.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard:
** The A.I. really knows how to abuse Suguri (and [[AttackDrone her]] [[KnifeNut variants]]) to destroy players on Normal or Hard with cheap combo attacks.
** In Hard Mode, the computer deal three times as much damage as normal, so, any charácter can demolish you in a matter of seconds if given the chance.
* CriticalStatusBuff: Any time Kae's Heat percentage reaches 200% or higher, but she can use more powerful attacks that could also inflict burning status to her opponents. She can also set herself ablaze with her ''Spontaneous Combustion'' move and keep her Heat fixed at 200% temporarily.
* DanceBattler: Hime, when fighting, refers to it as a dance.
--> ''"Dancing is wonderful."''
--> ''"Can't you keep up with my dance?"''
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Pudding Deity" has Saki as the main focus from beginning to end.
* {{Determinator}}: Suguri leaves it clear.
--> '''Suguri:''' ''"This fight is meaningless. No matter how much you hurt me, I won't give up!"''
* DualWielding: Suguri-SP, she fights with two [[LaserBlade beam]] [[KnifeNut daggers]].
* ExpansionPack: The ''X-Edition'' of ''Acceleration of SUGURI''.
* FinalBoss: Under normal circumstances, Hime is the last opponent of the Arcade Mode, or, if you're playing as Hime, the last opponent will be Suguri. In the Story Mode, Robo is the last opponent in the "Falling Wonder" storyline; and in the "Pudding Deity" story, the final boss is QP.
* GoMadFromTheIsolation: [[spoiler: Kae has, as demonstrated by her extra story, developed a crippling fear of both darkness and silence after Shifu [[KickTheDog ordered her to stay in a dark room without moving or talking untill he called her.]] Given the time scale of the series she might have spent months or even ''years'' like that, unable to go against the orders but desperately afraid and lonely. She seems to be slowly getting better thou.]]
* GreenEyes: Sora.
* GuestFighter: QP, the FinalBoss of "Pudding Deity", comes from ''QP Shooting - Dangerous!!'', a vertical ShootEmUp also from the ''Orange_Juice'' circle.
* HaremSeeker: [=NoName=] wants to use the girls to fulfill his dream harem.
* ImprobableUseOfAWeapon: Saki uses a grenade... as a ''melee'' weapon. It has a 25% chance of exploding.
* LaserBlade: Both Suguri and Sora use one of these for melee attacks.
* LethalJokeCharacter: QP, an adorable little [[PettingZooPeople puppy girl]]. She's the most powerful character in the game.
* LimitBreak: Hyper Attacks, which consume one level of the power bar; the Level 3 [[AwesomeButImpractical Accel Hypers]] takes this [[UptoEleven even further]].
* TheLostWoods: The Forest Stage, based on the stage 1 of ''SUGURI''.
* LovableSexManiac: [=NoName=], who is a complete pervert unlike his creator Shifu.
* MagicSkirt: Like its predecesor, the skirt-wearing girls remain well covered despite being in the air flying at full speed. [=NoName=] even calls Suguri out on it after their fight, saying that she's a cheater for flying around like that without showing anything.
* MovesetClone: Sora is this to Suguri, possibly justified as they have similar powers, and use the exact same weapons; and they both have very similar moves, although with a few variants: for example, Suguri's Hyper Attack with the sword is a single, very powerful slash, while Sora slices her opponent multiple times.
* NoContinueRun: Required to unlock most of the extra characters and the expansion pack, as well as the extra stories.
* OddJobGod: QP is the goddess of pudding.
* OffWithHisHead: Happens (off-screen) to [=NoName=] in "Falling Wonder" storyline.
* OhCrap: Kyoko's reaction after realising that as Shifu's (former) subordinates, Kyoko and the other girls must unwillingly obey [=NoName=] due to his creator's resemblance.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: {{Martial Pacifist}}s Suguri and Hime in "Pudding Deity" fought Saki for the right to taste the pudding Saki prepared. Justified as it was AllJustADream.
* PettingZooPeople: QP is a little dog girl.
* PowerGivesYouWings: Hime has them show up as part of her Accel Hyper.
* PromotedToPlayable: Saki, Iru, Nanako and the other girls who were non-playable bosses in the first game, appear in ''Acceleration of SUGURI'' as playable characters.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: [=NoName=], and a perverted one with a {{fetish}} for [[ShesGotLegs women's shapely legs]] at that.
* RobotMe: [=NoName=] to Shifu.
* ShockAndAwe: Iru can place electrical traps across the whole stage to keep pressure.
* ShoutOut: The [=PlayStation=] Network and Steam versions of the game has Trophies that references famous [[CatchPhrase catch phrases]] and one-liners from movies. Some examples includes ''"[[Franchise/{{Highlander}} There Can Be Only One]]"'' and ''"[[UsefulNotes/MuhammadAli Float Like A Butterfly]]"''.
* SillyReasonForWar: Apparently, pudding is an extremely rare delicacy in this universe, and legends tell, when pudding was wearing thin, nations went to war just to have the pleasure to taste such a delicious sweet. Even in "Pudding Deity", And Saki's after story, when Saki prepared by experimenting, a little pudding (She didn't know the name of it, so she tried to give it another name), Suguri and the other girls (Even Hime) fought her for the right to taste it.
* SNKBoss: Robo, which appears as the FinalBoss of "Falling Wonder", and BonusBoss in the Arcade Mode. It covers the entire circular arena and doesn't move at all, so its Heat counter never rises, and takes minimal damage. Like the bosses in the previous game, it has three phases, and gets more agressive with each one, spamming lasers, or placing obstacles that can't be flown through. When low on energy, it fires a [[WaveMotionGun massive blast]] that deals huge damage, even with the Heat counter on 0. So, your best chance is to treat it like your typical ShootEmUp boss instead of a FightingGame boss.
* SpaceZone: The Thermosphere stage takes place above Earth's atmosphere.
* SpoiledByTheManual: In Rockin' Android's official website for ''Acceleration of SUGURI X-Edition'', four of the unlockable characters (Hime, Sora, [=NoName=], and QP) are all silhouetted with any information on them labeled with "'''[-TOP SECRET-]'''", yet the downloadable manual for the [=PlayStation=] Network version reveals the characters appearance with descriptions about them.
* SwordBeam: One of Suguri's (In her three versions) Hyper Attacks.
* TaremeEyes: Suguri, Saki, Iru, Nanako, Kae, Hime, and QP.
* TsurimeEyes: Kyoko and Sora.
* UpdatedRerelease: Rockin' Android's ''Acceleration of SUGURI X-Edition HD'' for PC gives player the option of the original or the updated [=PlayStation=] 3 graphics, better control scheme customization, with the addition of higher resolutions than the original and widescreen support.
* VictoryQuote: Everyone has a few of them, Even Sora, who has two quotes, one of which reads just [[VisibleSilence ......]].
--> '''Sora''': ''"I can do it, if I hang in there."''
* WaveMotionGun: Suguri, Iru, Hime, and Robo have this as Hyper Attacks.
