YMMV: Sine Mora
- Scrappy Mechanic: Playing for score? You will have to—wait for it—never use your Time Capsule or subweapon, ever. Because doing so, even for a single frame, resets your score multiplier back to 1.
- Note that this is in stark contrast to Espgaluda I & II as well as Giga Wing, shmups in which the Time Slowdown and Reflect mechanics were used and were central for scoring. Instead of being given an ability that can be saved and used purely for survival or used by skilled players to generate score, Sine Mora's developers decided it'd be fun to penalize you for doing anything other than using the basic gun.
- The Woobie: Poor Myryan. First she was raped by Pyre, the Cobalt King's gunner, and then blackmailed by the game's arguable protagonist, who admits in his narration that he's essentially doing to her soul what Pyre did to her body, into helping him get revenge against the rest of the crew. She also has cancer.
