Also worth mentioning is ''Anime/TheSkyCrawlers: Innocent Aces'' for the UsefulNotes/NintendoWii, a LicensedGame of the ''Sky Crawlers'' anime. Though it has no direct ties with the ''Ace Combat'' universe, it was created by the same team and features the same arcade-sim air combat feel; as a result, many fans see it as a [invoked] SpiritualAdaptation.

** Justified with the minor mistakes the games sometimes make. They sometimes use prototype aircraft, so certain planes have names and functions different from usual (IE the F-16E Block 60 was named the F-16C Block 60, and in Ace Combat 2, the Raptor wasn't released yet, so they modeled the YF-22, the prototype version, instead).

** [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality For balance reasons]], every plane in the game is armed with a gun, even those that don't have them in real life (IE the F117-A, the F-35C or the EA-18G). Missiles that lock on to both ground and air targets automatically also don't exist. 6 also allows every plane to perform tight Hi-G turns, which would normally tear some of said aircraft apart.
** Sometimes justified when the game uses production or prototype concepts of planes and weapons before the final testing is finished (IE, the production model of the Raptor was used in AC4, and in trailers for AC7 Raptors were shown using external weapon pods, which were in testing for the FA-18C.)

%% commented out as ZeroContextExample * TryNotToDieTryNotToDie: On occasion. ''5'' and ''Zero'' in particular punctuate the briefing for their respective final missions by saying that any outcome other than you returning safely is unacceptable. ''Zero'' also has a humorous variant, where Pixy tells PJ in their first meeting that, if he gets shot down, he should crash somewhere where Pixy can't see it.



** Almost all of the promotional material for ''Zero'' shows Cipher and Pixy in [=F-15Cs=].

* YouCantThwartStageOne: The final missions of ''Ace Combat 04'' and ''5'', twice in ''Zero'' [[spoiler: (the Belkans deploying nuclear weapons and V2)]]and the start of ''6''. Not helped by how difficult it is to even try thwarting stage one.

* DefenselessEscorts: Transport planes (and ships, less often) appear from time to time as either [=NPCs=] that must be escorted or targets to be destroyed. They can usually survive a few hits but can't fight back in any way.

* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: You never get to see the main character either which is especially obvious in ''Ace Combat 5'', where the between-mission cutscenes show the rest of your squadron frequently, as well as some other allies and enemies.

Even when you try zooming in on the cockpit of your plane during a mission the pilot's face is hidden by a tinted visor and an oxygen mask.
