Tropes regarding Super Robot Wars NEO include:

  • Cool BFS: Shigzarl, Ryu Knight Zepher, the Eldoran units, Great Mazinger and Thunder Liger use them.
    • Pure Energy: The moment any Sig unit uses its Last Burn attack.
  • Instant Runes: Alsignos, Shigzarl AND Larva
  • Irony: You have some of the youngest mecha pilots (the Eldoran series) to be featured in a SRW teaming up with the most insane and violent animated incarnation of the Getter Robo team.
  • Lethal Joke Character: Resupplying is very powerful in this game (it can be used after moving and for no cost), he has a reasonably strong Assault attack, Borot Pressure Punch is long range, post movement, and can knock back for cheap, and his weapons upgrades are really cheap so he can do all of that (including the Resupplying) stronger for less money. He may not be the best supporter in the game, but he isn't horrible either.
  • Mythology Gag: When using the giant Getter Tomahawk attack, one of the Getter Team's lines in reaction to the dangerous amount of Getter Rays is lifted straight from the Getter Robo Armageddon OV As, specifically from the moment they used this same attack against the Invaders while piloting the Shin Getter.
  • Odd Name Out:
    • New Getter Robo in the middle of all these kids's shows, which is clearly not...for small children like the rest.
    • Then again, with the exception of New Getter Robo, the last time any of these shows were aired was 14 years ago...which means the target demographic who watched them are now adults (circa 2009).
  • Recycled Title: Not 100% the same, but a previous SRW is officially titled "Neo Super Robot Wars" in English. Luckily, the fanbase didn't take to that name.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: Brai-Cannon, Etheral Blaze, RevolBuster, Saurer Big Burster, Getter Beam at Full Power and Space Bazooka.
