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.
- The non-Zuntata performed soundtracks are also very good, Darius Twin and Darius Force
- Kimera II from G-Darius is one of this troper's favorite songs ever.
- Darius Burst gives us this gem in the form of The World of Spirit.
- Super Darius II took the original Darius II soundtrack and made it incredibly dramatic and awesome.
- 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.
- 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.
