!!Tropes associated with Edelweiss' works:
* TwoAndAHalfD: Most of their games are made in a 3D engine, but their gameplay are played in 2D play field with the exception of ''Cröixleur Sigma''[='=]s 2015 updated re-release, which is a a fully 3D game. ''Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin'' features a mix of 2D and 3D styles of gameplay.
* TwoDVisualsThreeDEffects: ''Fairy Bloom'' is a 2D game with hand-drawn sprites, but the environments (save for the background) and effects are made in 3D. Their later games since ''ETHER VAPOR'' has been leaning towards using more 3D graphics than 2D.
* AprilFoolsDay:
** Edelweiss released a short ''VideoGame/{{Gradius}}''-like parody of ''ETHER VAPOR'' under the name of ''Ether Viper'' from the game's website, which plays similarly to ''Gradius'' with the Ex-Tio's bits functioning as Options and a box of pocky as a boss.
** In 2014, they made a parody of ''Astebreed'' on [=YouTube=] as ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6oQcsh9nC4 SUPER ASTEBREED]]''.
* ArtEvolution: Their games have been gradually advancing in terms of 3D modeling, effects, and shaders.
* {{Combos}}: The ''Fairy Bloom'' games allow players to string together a series of basic attacks to fight their enemies, even moreso with ''Fairy Bloom Freesia'' which introduces special attacks players can use for various situations and upgrade their basic repertoire of moves.
* GameplayGrading: Many of their games feature end-stage results that rewards bonus points based on the player's performance in various criteria depending on the game.
* RereleasedForFree: The original ''Fairy Bloom'' was initially released through Comiket, but it was later released as freeware through the game's own website.
* SceneryPorn: Edelweiss' games has earned a reputation of presenting some beautiful visuals and lush scenery, especially with their later titles with ''Astebreed'' and ''Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin''.

* SpritePolygonMix: The original ''Fairy Bloom'' uses 3D graphics but also features 2D hand-drawn sprites. ''ETHER VAPOR'' has some bullets that are made in 2D sprites along with the game's 3D graphics, as does ''Astebreed''.
