- Author's Saving Throw: Seemed to be the intention with the July 2016 update, with the game going at a faster pace and some select pilots' dialogue being voiced.
- Ensemble Dark Horse: Of the Original Generation in this game, Olivie Opell, who serves as Mission Control - after seeing her gain a huge following in Japan, the creators gave Olivie her own original Humongous Mecha which can be fielded in battle, alongside a swimsuit picture for her Super Move Portrait Attack. In addition, she's also the first character of X-Ω to get her own pillow case and mouse pad products, further solidifying her popularity compared to the other originals.
- Fetish Retardant: While Super Robot Wars is no stranger to Fanservice due to the character designs for its female Original Generation, some fans find the use of it in X-Ω to be egregious - deliberate use of Absolute Cleavage, Gainaxing and Shaking the Rump during a Super Move Portrait Attack are present in the game, coupled with gross body proportions. Furthermore, that one character wears a blatant outfit tailored for a BDSM motif adds to the distastefulnessnote .
- Hilarious in Hindsight
- A thread on GameFAQs inquired whether Godzilla would fit into Super Robot Wars, given the initiative of X-Ω was to incorporate as many series as possible (like Super Robot Wars OE), despite Kaiju being explicitly non-Mecha. According to this game, yes, it can.
- On the Wild Mass Guessing page for the franchise, one user predicted that G-Saviour would be included to Troll fans and another responded by pointing out that fans might be willing to put up with G-Saviour if it meant that Daizyujin would be in future games. Take a wild guess which Mecha got its Super Robot Wars debut first in X-Ω.
- Narm: During the "One-Year Anniversary Event", all of the main characters of their respective shows join in unison for a "HRAAAAAAAA" moment...except for Shinji Ikari, who instead looks downtrodden and uninterested.
- Unexpected Character: Primarily "One-Time only events"
- Idolmaster: Xenoglossia and "Kantam Robo" from Crayon Shin-chan: the former is a Humongous Mecha adaptation of The iDOLM@STER video game, something heavily reviled by its fanbase, while the latter is meant to a Show Within a Show Parody of Humongous Mecha Anime from a deliberate Gag Series. It seemed like Kantam Robo was the most far-fetched example yet for Super Robot Wars until it was beaten by Mujin Gattai Kisaragi, which originates from The iDOLM@STER Anime (a more faithful adaptation of the game) - essentially, it is a Real Trailer, Fake Movie Within A Show that only appeared for two minutes in one episode.
- Kaiju may have made appearances in the form of enemies from various Humongous Mecha series in multiple licensed Super Robot Wars installments before X-Ω (such as Fafner in the Azure: Dead Aggressor and Shinkon Gattai Godannar!!), but never in a true playable capacity. That the "King of Monsters" should be the one to lead the charge was a pleasant surprise, but one that might have been done deliberately - during April 1, 2016, Godzilla vs Evangelion was "announced" due to the latter's creator Hideaki Anno working on Shin Godzilla. Merchandisers quickly caught onto the joke and milked it for all of its worth in the form of action figures and artwork. Whether this correlated to Godzilla getting an entry in X-Ω is unknown.
- Mechagodzilla also appears in this game, though it's the Kiryu version piloted by Akane Yashiro, something most Godzilla fans had forgotten about. In a similar vein to the Godzilla vs. Evangelion joke, an Evangelion Unit-01 repaint of the Kiryu figure is also playable, marking the second time an action figure has been featured in Super Robot Wars since Fei-Yen HD in Super Robot Wars UX.
- Played with MoiMoi, the Series Mascot from Umasugi Wave, a Super Robot Wars-oriented net radio show hosted by Tomokazu Sugita, Masaaki Endoh, Mai Aizawa and Rie Saitou: the reason MoiMoi was added was to celebrate the show's 500th episode.
- Subverted with Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger: with Godzilla representing Kaiju, fans knew it was just a matter of time for Tokusatsu to be given the same treatment for a Super Robot Wars entry in X-Ω. Given Zyuranger is best known as the Super Sentai show adapted into Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, arguably the most popular entry outside of Japan, international players anticipated it would be the first to represent the genre.
- Similar to the Kaiju example above, straight-forward robots (units that aren't "piloted") were abundant in prior Super Robot Wars installments: the supporting Mecha from GaoGaiGar are such examples, but they weren't the protagonists of that series. The "Blue Bomber" himself, Mega Man, marks the first instance of this case.
- Juushinki Pandora provides an interesting example: its announcement for X-Ω was made in the midst of the show's run, not after. The only time a series made its debut in Super Robot Wars before it properly ended was Mobile Suit Gundam Wing in Shin Super Robot Wars.
- When the Eldoran Series made its debut in X-Ω, the first entry that got in was Nekketsu Saikyo Gosaurer rather than the more well-known Zettai Muteki Raijin-Oh. Part of it may have to do with a Go-Saurer plastic model figure that was announced in the same live stream as the show's feature.
- Shonen Ashibe GO! GO! Goma-chan is perhaps the most absurd one out of all of them yet, since it's a slice of life children's Anime without any mecha.
YMMV / Super Robot Wars X-Ω
