* SpreadShot: Three of the four weapons are these, the last one being a single-stream flamethrower. The Yellow (Ball) weapon is a variant- if the player holds forward, they spread out even more, if the player holds back, they concentrate into a single beam.
* StandardStatusEffects: Getting hit by a green blob will give you an energy drain status, draining your weapon power faster and forcing you to button mash even more to get it back high.


* ThemeNaming: The enemy aliens are named after colours. (White Feather, Red Tide, Bluish Green, Dark Brown, Green Peas, Silver Scale, Gold Mine).

!!'''This Game Provides Examples of:'''

* ButtonMashing: The main mechanic of the game. The faster you mash the button, the stronger your power bar gets.
* CoresAndTurretsBoss: More than half the bosses are these, including the final boss.
* DifficultyByRegion: The Japanese version (Thunder Blaster) is ''by far'' a lot more difficult than the English versions. For starters, you face off many more enemies, including [[ClassicVideoGameScrewYous foes that come from behind]] to bump into you, and it also uses a checkpoint system instead of instant-respawning.
* FighterLaunchingSequence: This happens at the start of the Japanese version of the game.
* GiantMook: Several kinds, many of which are DemonicSpiders.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: The bosses are named after colours, and the FinalBoss is called "Gold Mine".
* MultipleEndings: You only get the good ending (Ending A) if you do not let any of the bosses escape. Otherwise, you get endings of increasing depressing-ness for each boss you let escape, the worst one has the earth being destroyed.
* NintendoHard: Besides having to button mash to deal enough damage to foes, there are many enemies that are extremely nasty.
* ReflectingLaser: One of the Mooks in the final stage shoot these.
* SmartBomb: You power it up by ButtionMashing.
* SpaceMine: One of the Mooks. Destroying it makes it explode into a spread of shrapnel.
* SpreadShot: Three of the four weapons are these, the last one being a single-stream flamethrower.
* ThemeNaming: The enemy aliens are named after colours. (White Feather, Red Tide, Bluish Green, Dark Brown, Green Peas, Silver Scale, Gold Mine).
* TimeLimitBoss: Several of the bosses will "time out" and escape if you take too long to beat them. This will affect the ending you receive- let any boss escape and the ending gets worse.
