There's not much more I could add about the PS2 games & the anime, so I'll just talk about Fist of Mars.

The gameplay is similar to other tactical RPGs like SRW, but a unique thing it has is the IAS (Interactive Attack System). Whenever you attack an enemy, it switches to 1st person perspective, & the enemy sprite will float around the screen. Placing the targeting cursor over the enemy & attacking will guarantee a hit. Hitting the small red circle in the enemy will cause a critical hit. Conversely, whenever you're attacked by the enemy, you must avoid their targeting cursor so you won't get hit. A no-damage scenario can be exploited by simply moving around in a circle.

Also, there's a Maximilian Jenius-looking character who spouts out mecha/sci-fi tropes:

BTW, I find Dolores to be quite similar to another child-like, pink giant from Knights of Sidonia, Tsumugi.
