Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyThink: ''VideoGame/{{Refle|X}}ction'' (1998) and ''VideoGame/StarSoldier: Vanishing Earth'' (1998) were using bullet-reflecting as means of offense and bonus points two years before ''Giga Wing'' did it.

* TierInducedScrappy: Sinnosuke has the widest {{spread|Shot}} of the original ''Giga Wing'' characters. But that doesn't make him good for scoring: he tends to destroy everything on the screen at once, which makes it harder to collect all of the medals. This is not helped by his slow speed, a common trait amongst spread-type characters in ShootEmUps.

Added DiffLines:

* PortingDisaster: ''Giga Wing Generations'' uses a vertically-oriented monitor. The porting team neglected to offer a vertical option in the [=PS2=] port. Also, it runs at only 30 frames per second--not a desirable framerate for games demanding precision and reflexes.
* TierInducedScrappy: Sinnosuke. To quote one player: "Just because it has a [[SpreadShot wide shot]] doesn't mean it's gonna save your ass! [[MightyGlacier You're gonna have to move, too.]]"
