* BreatherBoss: In ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Super Robot Wars Original Generation Gaiden]]'', compared to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Shura King Alkaid Nassh]] in the previous scenario and the upcoming FinalBoss, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal Duminuss]] is pathetically easy.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: The official manga; in particular, one story deals with the segment of the plot from ''Anime/AfterWarGundamX'' where the heroes are forced to hand over their Newtype allies, except this time [[Manga/GetterRobo Hayato Jin]] comes up with a plan that involves sending the Neo Getter Team (and the RobotBuddy of Anime/CombattlerV) in disguise. The whole thing is ''priceless'', whether it's Gai Daidou-as-[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Kamille Bidan]] cheerfully explaining his appearance by saying "I GOT FAT!", or Gou's impersonation of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Amuro Ray]] (which consists of clutching his head, {{Wangst}}ing, and spouting lines about [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Lalah Sune]] and how he can see time). To say nothing of Four Murasame's [[BlueWithShock shock]] after reuniting with 'Kamille'...
* DracoInLeatherPants: Despite being outright cruel, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal Tis]] and her {{Moe}} look has enough of a fanbase.
* FridgeBrilliance: [[Manga/GetterRobo Neo Getter-1]] gets a new weapon (a machine gun) seemingly out of nowhere for ''Reversal'', but recall episode two of the [=OVA=], where [[MadScientist Professor Shikishima]] shows off a machine gun and mutters to himself about making a scaled-up version for the Getter.
** [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz Wufei]]'s very last Spirit Command is "Self-Destruct", unlike other Gundam Wing pilots, who have it from the start. He's the only member of the G Team who never even attempted self-destruction until the ending of ''Endless Waltz''.
* GameBreaker: See [[Gamebreaker/SuperRobotWars here]] for details.
* {{Moe}}: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal Despinis]]; UnfortunateNames aside, she really hits the spot - docile, fragile, painfully shy and [[ApologisesALot can't seem to go a few sentences without apologizing]], even as a villain. [[spoiler:These abundant character traits might explain why Banpresto decided she be SparedByTheAdaptation for ''Original Generation'']].
* ScrappyMechanic: Similar to ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance'', battle animations cannot be skipped; fortunately, they can be turned off.
* [[HesJustHiding She's Just Hiding]]: In ''[[VideoGameRemake Original Generations]]'', [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal Fiona Gureden]] delivers some sort of "farewell" death speech to her brother and friends in the prologue scenarios, making it apparent she might be StuffedIntoTheFridge (''moreso'' than [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia Loveless]]]] in the "2.5" bonus segments). It takes one {{trailer|sAlwaysSpoil}} for ''Original Generation Gaiden'' to ruin the suspense, hence the lack of spoilers.
* ThatOneBoss: [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX The Frost Brothers]]
* [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot They Wasted A Perfectly Good Mechanism]]: In one of the early stages, the Excellence's frame gets destroyed while TakingTheBullet for [[Anime/GEARFighterDendoh Dendoh]], so the rest of the Excellence Team launches another frame from the battleship, allowing it to stay in the fight. [[CutscenePowerToTheMax You can't actually do that in the game,]] which kinda undermines the whole point of having multiple frames for multiple situations. Fortunately, this problem is rectified in OG.
* {{Wangst}}: Fiona's ''Reversal'' counterpart usually had her pull this with regards to how she thinks she's a hindrance to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal Raji Montaya]] and his research.
