Added DiffLines:

* CripplingOverspecialization: Cullen excels at fighting aggressively and overwhelming an enemy's defenses, but he has no idea how to fight a defensive battle himself. Kayto realizes this during the battle of Far Port and [[StraightForTheCommander goes straight for Cullen]], quickly overwhelming him.

* DecapitatedArmy: His death sends the forces under his command into disarray, leaving them easy pickings for the Alliance fleet.
* DirtyOldMan: He's not above trying to molest [[spoiler:Asaga]] when he has her at his mercy, even though she's betrothed to his boss.



* StarterVillain: He's the first real threat the ''Sunrider'' goes up against.

to:

* GeneralFailure: Cullen may be one of the PACT's highest-ranking admirals, but he's a terrible strategist and most of his victories come down to brute force and overwhelming numbers. When confronted with enemy commanders who are actually competent, he's quickly out of his depth.
* StarterVillain: He's the first real threat the ''Sunrider'' goes up against.against, but he's quickly replaced by the far more competent Fontana.

Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: Being called "Veniczar Porkchops" infuriates him.
* CharacterDeath: He's killed halfway into Mask of Arcadius when [[spoiler:Asaga]] vaporizes his flagship.
* FatBastard: He's obese, a hedonist, and is fond of nuking cities from orbit.

Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticHero: A downplayed example. While Ava is focused on reclaiming Cera from PACT and advocates missions that will further the war effort over general heroics like freeing slaves and busting pirates, she respects Kayto's decisions and will go along with whatever mission he chooses without complaint.

Added DiffLines:

* OddFriendship: With Kryska. Despite one being a disciplined, professional soldier and the other being an [[{{Tsundere}} easily-flustered, emotional]] mercenary, the two of them get along very well both on and off the battlefield.


Added DiffLines:

* TheMole: The crew quickly figures out that she's an Alliance spy, sent to keep tabs on the Sunrider as much as to help them fight the PACT.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: She invites Kayto to tour Ongess with her, so that he can see how the Alliance's relief efforts are helping the people and to show him that the Alliance can be trusted. Not only does this get the two of them captured by Cosette, but the Alliance's heavy-handed response during the rescue--namely, to indiscriminately gun down civilians, [[WouldHurtAChild including a little girl]] [[DisproportionateRetribution whose only crime was to pick up a knife]]--can convince Kayto that the Alliance is ''not'' to be trusted.
* OddFriendship: With Icari. Despite one being a disciplined, professional soldier and the other being an [[{{Tsundere}} easily-flustered, emotional]] mercenary, the two of them get along very well both on and off the battlefield.

* TheNapoleon

to:

* TheNapoleonTheNapoleon: She has a massive complex about her height and apparent age, and is quite a violent individual.
* OlderThanTheyLook: It's not clear how old she really is, but the [[spoiler:Ongessite poisoning]] has stunted her growth to the point that she basically stopped aging when she was 11 years old.



* {{Yandere}}: When posed with a chance for revenge [[spoiler:against the Alliance, Cosette is more than willing to let Grey detonate Ongess and kill millions.]]

Added DiffLines:

* OfficialCouple: He enters a romantic relationship with Chigara in Liberation Day, [[{{Railroading}} regardless of the player's prior choices]].


Added DiffLines:

* IJustWantToBeNormal: A downplayed example. Chigara is both a skilled Ryder pilot and a brilliant scientist whose inventions could be worth a fortune if she sold them, but all she really wants is to open a bakery and raise a family.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: She becomes this for Kayto toward the end of Mask of Arcadius, giving him the emotional support he needs to keep going after the Legion's latest attack brings him to the brink of despair.


Added DiffLines:

* OfficialCouple: Despite the above LoveTriangle, she and Kayto have become this by Liberation Day.

A childhood friend of the captain and one year his senior, Ava Crescentia served as an older sister figure to Kayto for much of his early life. Reunited after eight years of separation as her superior officer, Kayto’s new relationship with Ava can only be called awkward. Ava’s uncompromising professionalism is matched only by her cold willingness to do whatever is necessary to win the war.

* ArtificialHuman: She was created in a laboratory like all Prototypes.
* BigBad: Her machinations form the crux of the series' plot.



* HiveQueen

to:

* HiveQueenEvenEvilHasLovedOnes: She clearly cares for her "sister" Alice and is concerned for her well-being, though this blinds her to Alice's [[OmnicidalManiac true goals]].
* HiveQueen: She is the originator of the Prototypes' HiveMind and directs their actions in accordance with her plans.



* NonActionBigBad: Alpha never gets directly involved in the fighting, instead letting Alice and their Prototype proxies fight on her behalf.




to:

* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: She doesn't seem to understand the emotion, and fears that the intense love felt by Alice and Chigara will corrupt the Prototypes' mind stream.

Added DiffLines:

* InappropriatelyCloseComrades: She refuses to renew her past relationship with Kayto in part because of this, fearing that to do so would compromise his judgment. She's proven right if you refuse to let her go through with the above HeroicSacrifice, [[spoiler:sacrificing your one chance to finally destroy the Legion]] because Kayto can't bear to lose her.


Added DiffLines:

* StudentCouncilPresident: She was this in high school. She wanted to bring about change for the student body, but her strict and uncompromising leadership only alienated the rest of the council (except for Kayto) and she failed to achieve anything during her tenure. The experience made her realize that she's not cut out for leadership.

Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceTurn: She starts out as an enemy before getting shot down and captured by the ''Sunrider'', and will turn against you if you decide to spare the Alliance diplomats, attempting to off them herself... only to rejoin you when she realizes that she was about to kill helpless children.
* HitmanWithAHeart: She might be an amoral mercenary and assassin, but she draws the line at killing children.


Added DiffLines:

* PatrioticFervor: She takes every opportunity to extol the virtues of the Solar Alliance and its technology, and is also willing to overlook some of the more questionable things her country does in the name of defeating PACT.
-->I'll show you the might of the Solar Alliance!
* PracticalTaunt: The Paladin's Drawfire skill, which makes enemy units more likely to target the Paladin and also drastically increases its armour.
