YMMV / Endless Frontier

Go To

  • Awesome Music:
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Upon hearing that she and Reji can't get home, Xiaomu immediately turns to Reji and tells him she wants to settle down with him.
  • Designated Hero: Ironically, Reiji Arisu and Xiaomu note that sometimes the native part of the gang acts just as bad as the villains.
    • Before Reiji and Xiaomu join up, Kaguya Nanbu, Aschen Brodel and Princess Suzuka cheerfully talk about beating information out of Kyon Feulion:
      Haken: *sigh* I'm starting to wonder which side is supposed to be the bad guys...
  • Demonic Spiders
    • The Katanas aka Saya clones in EXCEED: they require more than just one full combo string to go down and are capable of dishing out its own long, attack string. God bless if you happen to do battle with more than one of them at the same time. We're looking at you, Mark Hunter.
    • The "surfer" sub-class mooks have ridiculous high amounts of speed (thus higher initiative to go first in combat) and if they want to, attack you before you can strike back.
  • Ear Worm: Koma's Leitmotif
  • Evil Is Sexy: Saya and T-ELOS
  • Fanon: Because of Woolseyism regarding the mistranslation of Lemon Browning into "Raymond" Browning in the localization, fans have suggested the latter is the name of Excellen Browning and Lemon's father. This has led to an inveritable...
    • Fan Wank: This flub has become a wank among those who refuse to ignore the mistranslation. To them, in "the American continuity", Lemon's (or rather, the "Shadow-Mirror" Alternate Universe version of Excellen's) father called "Raymond" is the one who began the W-Series. When his daughter was killed in the shuttle crash, Lemon, after being resurrected through robotics and science, switched the focus to androids after taking over in order to understand herself. While canon for Super Robot Wars Original Generation has not officially Jossed this, most players find this theory ridiculous due to overextending Wild Mass Guessing as a result of a mistranslating a name.

    • Some might sum it up due to Aschen misreading the name as a result of her occasionally buggy nature, but also because the computer she reads from is heavily damaged.
    • Jossed in The Moon Dwellers, Haken mentions that the person who created him is Female, as he calls her mother.
  • Foe Yay: Why would Dorothy Mistral have a statue of her rival bounty hunter John Moses, when he was in his 30s, in her bedroom?
  • Game-Breaker: See here for details.
  • Narm: Agrado Heim's primary motivation. As dangerous as it sounds, it's basically a multi-dimensional "go green" project.
  • Name's the Same: Obviously characters in the Endless Frontier games having the same surname as those in Original Generation. Lampshaded In-Universe during The Moon Dwellers - most of the "Steel Dragon Battle Group" are puzzled Haken has Excellen's surname. Naturally, Kyosuke Nanbu quickly puts two-and-two togther by pointing almost everything about Haken links back to the Shadow-Mirror.
    Kyosuke:( Shadow Mirror, Browning ... and Axel. The answer that can be deduced from this is ... )

  • Scrappy Mechanic: "Forced Evasion" in the first game; rectified in the sequel with more strict requirements for enemies to trigger it. Additionally, allied characters can also use this by sacrificing the "Frontier Gauge".
  • That One Boss
    • The first fight with Kyon: she and her Joker Soldier flunkies inflict Standard Status Effects with their attacks at a point in the first game where players can only use items to remove them (unless they Level Grind Kaguya to gain the "Prayer" Spirit Commandnote ). Should Kyon attack one party member instead of three, there's a chance it's going to be a long combo string that includes her "Overdrive".
    • In EXCEED, Mark FUCKING Hunter: another Flunky Boss with three Katanas, exceptionally devastating and LONG attack string and a heavyweight, despite appearances. Chances are if he targets one party member for a combo, expect that character to be knocked out.
  • Theiss Titillation Theory: You know in your heart that Kaguya's never going to pop out of that dress like she ought to, nor will you get to see if Neige's legs go all the way up, but it still feels like this time might be it every time you use their Limit Break.
  • Unexpected Character: Almost no one expected Axel, Alfimi and Kouta from the main Original Generation continuity to make a pit stop for Endless Frontier, despite Axel's stated intentions at the end of Original Generation Gaiden. Mark Hunter, on the other hand, blew them out of the water for not having reappeared in another video game for nearly 20 years.
  • Woolseyism: Aside from the one glaring mistake above, Atlus added their usual amount of benevolent tweaks. Among other things, Tomb Raider and Cow and Chicken get Shout Outs.


How well does it match the trope?
