- Bizarro Episode: Meiling's route features characters acting strangely, stage backgrounds that gradually devolve into crayon drawings, and a Final Boss battle against a giant catfish. In the end the whole thing is revealed to be All Just a Dream.
- Tier-Induced Scrappy: Utsuho is a Skill Gate Character with extremely powerful (and surprisingly quick) melee attacks as well as immense and incredibly dense strong bullets. She's also one of the more popular characters, making her the bane of most players just starting out.
