YMMV: Bioship Paladin
- Anti-Climax Boss: The Final Boss, Tatsuriki, both slower and possesses less firepower than the previous two bosses. Additionally, it moves very predictably and slowly and lacks the capacity to hit much of the screen at one time, making it a sitting duck for the manual "Beam" shots.
- Game Breaker: The manual-target explosive blasts could decimate bosses and Giant Mooks in seconds, AND defend you from projectiles. It takes some practice to master it, though.
- That One Level: Any level with asteroids/rocks, ESPECIALLY brown ones. All rocks explode into shrapnel when destroyed, and the shrapnel can do a lot of damage.
