%%* BadassCrew

to:

%%* BadassCrew* BadassCrew: A squadron of at least four pilots, and most likely four more [[GuyInBack RIOs]] considering their preference for F-14 Tomcats. This contrasts against the usual OneManArmy or BashBrothers format of Ace Combat protagonists.



* FamedInStory: By the later stages of the war, the presence of Wardog Squadron in the skies is used to rally Osean forces and terrify Yuktobanian forces, with some units actually breaking and fleeing when the squadron shows up. [[spoiler: It takes a while for their "Ghosts of Razgriz" paint scheme to get the same notoriety, but once it catches on, ''everyone'' is in awe of it.]]

%%* TheSmartGuy

to:

%%* TheSmartGuy* TheSmartGuy: Has a few moments, such as being the first to realize the presence of jamming aircraft in one mission.



%%* CoolOldGuy

to:

%%* CoolOldGuy* CoolOldGuy: Has been flying since the Belkan War, and still shows his skill in old age. He's also one of the first people to [[spoiler:figure out TheConspiracy]].



* GoodIsNotNice: He's a bit abrasive at times, but Snow is definitely one of the good guys.



* RuleOfSymbolism: He is the Wardog Squadron's war dog.



* RuleOfSymbolism: He is the Wardog Squadron's war dog.



%%* TheCaptain

to:

%%* TheCaptain* TheCaptain: Of the Naval variety, as opposed to a Squadron Captain such as Blaze or Snow.



%%* ReasonableAuthorityFigure

to:

%%* ReasonableAuthorityFigure* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Is one of the few higher-ups in the game who realize the existence of TheConspiracy and work to stop it.



* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: Walks the line between President Personable and [[spoiler:President Target]].
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: [[spoiler:Too bad he is kidnapped early in the game.]]

to:

* OurPresidentsAreDifferent: Walks the line between President Personable and [[spoiler:President Target]].
Target]]. Later in the game he borders on [[spoiler:President Action when he and a marine unit are forced to go into the capital of Osea in order to expose the Belkan plot]].
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Harling is an [[NiceGuy all-around pleasant man]] who seeks a peaceful coexistence with Yuktobania and tries his best to broker an end of hostilities between the two countries. [[spoiler:Too bad he is kidnapped early in the game.]]



* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: [[spoiler:Too bad he is kidnapped early in the game. And once he's rescued, the first group of his own military he tries to talk to immediately labels him a traitor and tries to kill him.]]

to:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Much like Harling, he would rather Osea and Yuktobania coexist than be at war. [[spoiler:Too bad he is kidnapped early in the game. And once he's rescued, the first group of his own military he tries to talk to immediately labels him a traitor and tries to kill him.]]



%%* RebelLeader

to:

%%* RebelLeader* RebelLeader: Leads a resistance unit in Yuktobanian territory.

* FinishHim: When you heavily damage the Scinfaxi, the Arkbird rips a hole in it with its laser, leaving it defenseless and unable to launch more fighters. After that, Thunderhead tells you to "Blast it out of the water!" Subverted, as while he's ordering Wardog to do the deed, he's not actually forcing them to do something they don't want to do, considering how much damage and loss of lives the Osean forces had suffered from said submarine's missile attacks.

* TheCameo: He can appear in certain versions of Mayhem, the tenth mission of ''VideoGame/AceCombatZeroTheBelkanWar''. Though released about a year after 5, Zero chronologically takes place 15 years before it, making this an EarlyBirdCameo chronologically.

* TheCaptain: Takes this role and rank after the first two missions.



* OneManArmy: Somewhat downplayed compared to most other examples in the series, as Blaze is usually one plane in a four-man squadron. Nonetheless, he is responsible for most of the squadron's kills, and is eventually considered this trope by the rest of the unit.
--> '''Chopper:''' "I'm telling you, Kid could single-handedly turn the tide of this war. It's almost scary."



* SpeaksFluentAnimal: At one point, [[TeamPet Kirk]] manages to get on the Squadron's radio and barks into it. Comically, Blaze is given the opportunity to answer Yes or No.



* GratuitousEnglish: His custom callsign is actually supposed to be "The Heartbroken One", referencing [[spoiler:his relationship with the Yuktobanian Major Nastasya Obertas during the Belkan War and their subsequent breakup]].

* TheMentor: For a brief period, before he's shot down in the second mission.
* VeteranInstructor: Fought in the Belkan War prior to the events of the game, where he met Pops.
* WeaponOfChoice: Two, actually. During the Belkan War, he was shown to fly an F-14D Super Tomcat. 15 years later, during his time as an instructor, he flew an F-4G Wild Weasel.

''[[VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies Shattered Skies]]'' has a brave airline first officer who tries to control a plane after terrorists shoot the pilot: Nagase, the very same one from Ace Combat 2.

* RedHeadedHero: Has red hair and, in terms of idealism, is second only to Nagase.

* WhenHarryMetSvetlana: His on-and-off romance with the Yuktobanian Recon Major Nastasya. In an inversion of the default trope, it's Bartlett ("one of us", since you fly for Osea) who goes over to the enemy side first, joining up with the loyalist Yuktobanians, while Nastasya technically (respectively, "one of them") stays loyal to Yuktobania, as she leaves the country only after discovering treason in the highest government ranks and freeing the legitimate Prime Minister.
