Added DiffLines:

* RedshirtArmy: At one point in the final level [[spoiler:set inside Gogoh's humongous guts]] the Vulkaiser is surrounded by what remains of Earth's armies, inspired by the robot's tenacity to fight the enemy all together. They get all blown apart in seconds, levaing Vulkaiser to fight alone once again.

[[http://playism-games.com/game/243/witch-bot-meglilo Witch-Bot MEGLILO]] is another bullet hell game set in the same universe, this time a VerticalScrollingShooter. The wacky premise is that Meglilo, a MagicalGirl from the Magic Kingdom, gets killed during one of the battles between the Gogoh Army and the Supercharged Research Center, and Prof. Amamori himself rebuilds her in the form of a cyborg with huge firepower and the ability to stop time!

Added DiffLines:

* AffectionateParody: Of early robot anime. More affectionate than parody, actually!


Added DiffLines:

* FlechetteStorm: Needle Kaiser's special attack. As Kimiko says, her module is not about precision but about covering the biggest area possible.

Added DiffLines:

* SpotTheImposter: Parodied when, during the battle between Vulkaiser and its EvilKnockoff Warukaiger, apparently Professor Amamori could not tell one apart from the other. Despite Warukaiger being bigger than the robot ''he himself'' developed, and also being a different color.


''Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser'', also spelled VULKAISER in all caps, is a HorizontalScrollingShooter developed by Astro Port (the makers of ''VideoGame/{{SATAZIUS}}'') and released on UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} in Summer 2015. The game is made to be a huge pastiche of 70s and 80s [[SuperRobotGenre Super Robots]], especially ''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''Anime/{{Voltron}}'' and ''Anime/VoltesV'' (but there could be dozens of examples), complete with episode titles and big yellow English subtitles, in the form of a BulletHell shooter.

* EvilKnockoff: The fourth boss, Supervillain Robot Warukaiger, is a bigger purple Vulkaiser armed with copies of the four modules ("waru" even means "bad" in Japanese). Beating it nets the achievement "Never Buy Bootlegs".



* HumanAliens / HornedHumanoid: General Roz, possibly as a homage to ''Voltes V'''s Boazanian people.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Of sorts, to ''VideoGame/GeppyX''. They both pretend to be an adaptation of a fictional old-school robot anime.
* ThisIsADrill: Drill Kaiser's weapon, and also the first boss' giant drill. Defeating him nets an achievement called "[[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann The drill that will pierce the heavens]]".

The basis of the gameplay is that at fixed points the Vulkaiser can combine with one of the other four Kaiser modules and gain new special attacks. You only have one life, and when one of the Kaisers is destroyed it is gone forever, but the robots are repaired in between levels, replenishing a bit of life.

Shooting charges up the modules' special weapons, that when fired cancel some of the enemy bullets.



* BiggerBad: As it usually happens in this kind of anime, Roz is the leader of the Gogoh Army, but the real enemy and FinalBoss is [[spoiler:Gogoh himself/itself, a planet-sized monstrosity.]]
* {{Bishonen}} / DudeLooksLikeALady: Roz, the leader of the Gogoh Army.

* ClicheStorm: That's exactly the point.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: Level four is set in space, being Vulkaiser's travel from Earth to the Moon where the Gogoh base is located. At one point a fish-like shape appears in the background. [[spoiler:It's Gogoh, the real BiggerBad.]]
* HumanAliens / HornedHumanoid: Prince Roz, possibly as a homage to ''Voltes V'''s Boazanian people.

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: The game is much more colorful, campy and light-hearted than every other Astro Port shooter before or since.


It's the year 1977 and the evil Gogoh Army from space is attacking Earth! Japan (and the entire planet)'s only hope comes from the Supercharged Research Center, who developed the CombiningMecha Vulkaiser to face the cosmic invaders. Go, Vulkaiser! Restore peace to the Earth!

Added DiffLines:

* MakeMyMonsterGrow: A curious example. You always fight Roz on his mecha, but for the final showdown with him you fight... Roz himself, grown to Vulkaiser's size and shooting energy blades and other stuff.


* PlanetEater: Vulkaiser destroys the Gogoh base on the Moon, but then [[spoiler:Gogoh appears and swallows the Earth whole!]]



* SmartBomb: Every Kaiser module has a different Omega Weapon (not [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII that one]]) to cancel the enemy bullets.

* WombLevel: [[spoiler:The sixth and last level is set inside Gogoh itself, and the enemies there are organic in nature.]]
