The finalized roster of 23 ships as of the Game Maker studio port, March 2020.

Welcome to the Xeno Fighters R Wiki! This wiki serves as an encyclopedia of information about the playable fighters, stages, and enemies in the game.

Xeno Fighters R is a homebrew SHMUP created by Team XF. This game is inspired by the Raiden Fighters series of top-down scrolling shooters by SEIBU KAIHATSU INC. This project is currently under development.

The game has four original ships: the Amada Vipros, the Phyxius, the Zaiva, and the Xelcor. It also features guest fighters from other shoot 'em up games by Psikyo, Capcom, Konami, and others.

There are 20 stages to play in the game with four different game modes to select from.

The story of Xeno Fighters R involves BRES, a group of humans subverted by the hostile Keto. BRES and the Keto extraterrestrials attack ATHENA through various periods in Earth's war history, using the wars as cover to their operations to destroy the Earth. The guest fighters do not have any connection to the story.

Xeno Fighters R has a long development history, starting in 1998.
