* GuyInTheBack: Fana makes herself useful in this capacity despite being a noble with minimal training (lookout but not gunnery). Interestingly, it's the AcePilot who gets hurt. She talks to him to keep him conscious.

Added DiffLines:

*ICantDance: Fana tries Charles to dance with her during one of the plane's pit-stops. He doesn't know how (on count of being a commoner with no reason to learn) and it means they fall into a suggestive position. [[spoiler: At the ending, he "dances" in his plane, i.e. he shows off with various stunts.]]

In fact, he disappears from history.history after it.]]



* BodyguardCrush: Averted in the movie, as Charles manages to resist falling in love with Fana. He does admit though that he considers her his 'hope' in the end. [[spoiler:In the novel [[StarCrossedLovers the two are implied to have developed feelings for each other during their sojourn at the archipelago, but Charles refuses to pursue his feelings out of duty to Levahm.]]]]

* TheEmpire: ''Two'' of them, on opposite sides of the war.

to:

*ConsummateProfessional: Charles takes all the abuse leveled at him from senior officers and enlisted men like water off a duck's back and answers questions seriously. His initial exchanges with Fana are practical and to-the-point. Even those that despise him for his mixed parentage recognize him as the best in the Levahm air force.
*DisposableFiance: [[spoiler: Averted; Prince Carlo is precisely as sincere and affectionate as he appears in his first scene and, though Fana suggests eloping to Charles, she ultimately marries Carlo.]]
* TheEmpire: ''Two'' of them, on opposite sides of the war. Our hero works for one of them so they're considered even morally speaking.



* HeroicSacrifice: All done off-screen however. The Levahm commander in charge of San Matilia sends his entire air wing, including Charles' mercenary buddies, in a diversionary attack against Amatsukami positions so that the Santa Cruz can slip out of the island undetected. Charles morosely mentions later that many of the pilots sent out won't likely come back alive.
* HighSpeedMissileDodge: During the first ambush, Charles has to deal with several heat-seeking missiles. He proceeds to lose some of them in the sea, and then lead the rest into...

alive. All of this is off-screen.

*HimeCut: Fana supports the classic look (even bangs, forelocks and waist length in the back) during her scenes as a child and also in the beginning. It gets messy after a couple days in a plane (and a couple dips into the sea) because she has no means of upkeep. Then she cuts most of it off.



* OhCrap: Charles experiences several of these over the course of the flight. Then again [[spoiler:being surrounded by a dozen flying battleships ''twice'', then being chased by a squad of fighters determined to shoot your plane down]] can do that to a person.

*TheMedic: Fana shows extensive medical knowledge when Charles is injured during an escape from an enemy fleet; removing debris, cleaning the wound, disinfecting it with alcohol, and then bandaging him.



*RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: The epilogue states that Fana devoted herself to diplomacy following this mission.



* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: Zigzagged through the movie. At first, he says he's doing this as his final mission before retiring to live on an island with the sizeable wealth he'd gain from completing it. Then, he tells Fana that he always wanted to do a mission he would become proud of. Despite that, after safely delivering Fana to the Special Operations ship, he calmly accepts the large bag of gold dust as payment for the mission... only to throw it away as confetti while putting on one last aerial show for Fana and the ship's crew.

* WhatAnIdiot: Okay Prince Carlo, we understand you were worried about your fiancee's secret trip, but did you have to talk about it on a message sent by military telegraph, where your country's enemies would likely intercept it? Charles privately rants about it in-universe.
* WorthyOpponent: The Amatsukami ace, Takeo Chijiwa (who is incidentally the protagonist of the third LightNovel), sees Charles as this, enough that he challenges him to a one-on-one dogfight.

* AnachronismStew: Not really obvious at first, given the flying battleships that both Levahm and Amatsukami field, but it's surprising to have WorldWarTwo-style planes being chased by ''heat-seeking missiles''... launched by said flying battleships.

* CoolAirship: Less like those in Anime/LastExile or its [[Anime/LastExileFamTheSilverWing sequel]], more like WorldWarTwo battleships like the Yamato, except carried aloft by massive prop engines.
* CoolPlane: The Shinden, the main fighter of the Amatsukami Airforce. It is based on the real-life Kyushu J-7W Shinden [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyushu_J7W]], a WorldWarTwo-era prototype that never got beyond the drawing table. Kind of fitting, given how the conflict between Levahm and Amatsukami seems to parallel that particular global conflict.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: The Empire of Levahm seems to be Imperial Spain transposed into the start of the Twentieth Century, while the Empire of Amatsukami is WorldWarTwo-era Imperial Japan.

A light novel by Koroku Inumura which was later adapted into an animated movie by Studio Creator/{{Madhouse}}, '''''To Aru Hikūshi e no Tsuioku''''' (とある飛空士への追憶 aka ''Remembrances for a Certain Pilot'' also known as ''The Princess and the Pilot'') tells the story of Charles Karino, a mercenary pilot serving under the Levahm Airforce, who is tasked an important mission: to ferry Princess Fana del Moral, only daughter of the ruling family of San Matilia and fiancee to the crown prince of the Empire of Levahm, safely across twelve thousand kilometers of open ocean to the mainland. The sheer distance of the trip is daunting enough, but throw in the fact that Levahm is currently at war with the neighboring Empire of Amatsukami, and whose armed aerial navy and air force patrol those waters, and one can see that the mission is anything ''but'' easy.
