WARNING! A HUGE BATTLESHIP "SUBJECTIVE TROPES" IS APPROACHING FAST.


  • Crowning Moment of Funny: "A HUGE BATTLESHIP MY HOME DADDY IS APPROACHING FAST."
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Zuntata, Taito's in-house music group, did a fantastic job with the games' soundtracks, including lots of sampled opera and the second boss-fight's music in G-Darius, "B. T. Dutch", containing the sounds of power drills. Listen to it here.
  • Memetic Mutation: The opening dialogue in "Olga Breeze", the stage 1 song of Darius II, which along with some Techno Babble in Engrish includes this infamous line:

  Tiat Young: "I always wanted a thing called TUNA SASHIMI!"

  • Nightmare Fuel: For a game series against deep sea creatures, there's surprisingly little of this with the setting itself, but some of the tracks for later game series can be...unsettling. Galst Vic from Darius Force and Dada from G-Darius.
    • Heck, Galst Vic himself. The one time we get a boss not based on marine wildlife, we get...a frickin' skeleton-like thing that resembles a Terminator. And just when you escape the base and think you're home free, its dismembered head comes back for one last stand!
  • Porting Disaster: Darius+ (Not to be confused with Darius Plus) requires damaging the boss-vessel components in the correct order, some of which were near the back of the enemy. In this version, you also get stuck with a limited-range pea shooter if you get killed - even during a boss fight.
  • That One Boss: The series' bosses are known not only for basically being huge mechanical fish, but also being very punishing too. Those that come to mind are Great Thing (in all appearances), Fatty Glutton (in all appearances except Burst, where he's the easiest final boss), Titanic Lance and Storm Causer from Gaiden, The Embryon from G-Darius, etc.
