Added DiffLines:

*** Amusingly enough, their slower speeds were latter carried over into ''Raiden IV'' where they're slower than standard Fighting Thunder ME-02.


* BestLevelEver: Stage 6 in the first ''Raiden Fighters''. It starts out high in the sky over an ocean, with the sun reflecting off the surface. As you fight waves of enemies, you notice a [[{{Foreshadowing}} giant looming shadow of a giant plane on the ocean]]. The ocean and shadow disappear under cloud cover, and later, you enter a thunderstorm. Moments later, you fly right past the giant stage boss, while the thunderstorm's intensity increases immensely. Many players agree that the presentation of this stage is one of the best in the series.

** In Real Battle missions, getting killed in Phase 1 would lead to [[spoiler:a bunch of RightWingMilitiaFanatic dropping a bomb on an entire city. What they contained is not specified, but if they are Crystals...]]

* DemonicSpiders: [[FanNickname Sniper Tanks]]. And if you think it's safer over the ocean where there's fewer Sniper Tanks, we have [[AquaticMook Sniper Gunboats]] that perform the same role.

** Most notable is the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_aMmpG9LPU final stage of the first ''Raiden Fighters'']], unofficially titled "[[EarWorm Invade Your Mind]]". Sadly, its official title is just "Fort(ress) Stage".

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: ''Jet'' has several examples.
** Simulation Levels 35 and 50 can become more distressing, to the point of NoEnding no matter how good you play there.
** In Real Battle missions, getting killed in Phase 1 would lead to [[spoiler:a bunch of RightWingMilitiaFanatic dropping a bomb on an entire city. What they contained is not specified, but if they are Crystals...]]


*** On that last note, however, it should be noted that it allows the player to avoid enemies that project heavy firepower to their direct rear (and there are quite a few of them that do so).
*** The developers probably realized how much the Endeavor was [[{{TheScrappy}} reviled in general]] that, in a cameo appearance in ''Raiden Fighters 2'', enemy tanks '''refused to run over a bunch of them''' sitting on an airstrip.


** ''VideoGame/RaidenV'' takes cues from the ''Raiden Fighters'' series. THe former game has a story and in-game mission briefings. ''Raiden V'' even took that further by adding [[DesignItYourSelfEquipment customizations to ships]]. [[HilariousInHindsight Even better]], ''Raiden V'' was released on the same year as the [[MilestoneCelebration 20th anniversary]] of the ''Raiden Fighters'' series.

* MemeticMutation: "Falsificare," a shmup lingo term born of a {{troll}}'s comments (and the ensuing responses) claiming that ''Raiden Fighters Aces''[='=]s 100,000,000-point achievement is [[BadExportForYou impossible to obtain in the US version]], [[WhatAnIdiot never mind replays of US version players proving otherwise]].
** Said troll has made so many attempts at preaching their case in different sites, you could make a drinking game out of it. Heck, it'd be simpler to list where they haven't posted yet.


** Subverted with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0YvV9vtXOo the music]] for Simulation Levels 35 and 50 in ''Jet'', because while the track itself is awesome, the situation it's played in is ''not'' awesome (specifically, [[NoFinalBossForYou you just screwed yourself out of the two Real Battle stages]]).

** Score-pursuing players will restart again and again and ''again'', often to the point of OverlyLongGag, if they mess up in the first stage trying to build up to the "X" medals that are worth 10,000 to 100,000 points.
