A HudsonSoft game that could be considered as a spinoff is ''Hector [[AnnualTitle '87]]'', also known as ''Starship Hector''. It differs from all other ''Star Soldier'' games by being set on Earth and scrolling horizontally in its even-numbered stages, but was the first game to feature the 2-minute and 5-minute "Caravan" modes found in the later ''Star Soldier'' games.

Added DiffLines:

* HomingProjectile: Played straight in which some of the enemies fire blue energy balls that magnetically lock on to the player's ship unless you move away from them.

* SelfPlagiarism: The VirtualBoy game ''Vertical Force'' (also developed by Hudson Soft) is very similar to the original game despite not being nominally part of the series.

Added DiffLines:

* ContentWarning: Presumably in order to deter ItsShortSoItSucks, the purchase page for ''Star Soldier R'' gives you a warning ''in red text'' that the game only features 2- and 5-minute modes.


* AwesomeButPractical: The other two ships in ''Vanishing Earth''. The red one is between the green and blue ships; its better than the green one but worse than the blue one, although its 2nd Ex-Arm is arguably inferior to the green one's. It's the only ship whose main weapon can hit behind it though. The blue one is an outright GameBreaker, with only one real weakness that may require more advanced skill at Shoot 'Em Ups.
