* EmergencyTraineeBattleDeployment: all but one experienced pilot on Sand Island are wiped out in a surprise attack by an unknown aggressor, leaving only the trainees on active duty. One of them is the FeaturelessProtagonist, who is joined by three others (one of whom is not even out of his basic flight training yet) on desperate missions to defend the air base--and the four of them eventually become one of the most decorated units of the Osean Air Force. Osea later attempts to pull this off intentionally, transferring all trainees from a nearby Heierlack Base to Sand Island, but [[spoiler:they all get wiped out in the very next real battle.]]

The fifth game in the ''AceCombat'' series, released in 2004, set mostly in [[ConstructedWorld Strangereal's]] Osean Continent [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture in 2010]]. Although they have been staunch allies for 15 years, the Union of Yuktobanian Republics provokes and declares war upon the Osean Federation, conducting a massive invasion with nary a warning. The opening salvos are fired at Sand Island, an Osean training base where four cadets (or "nuggets") are on the verge of completing their training: Kei "Edge" Nagase, Alvin H. "Chopper" Davenport, Hans "Archer" Grimm, and Blaze (that's you!). Circumstances force these four to the forefront of the Circum-Pacific War where they will become the heroes known as the Wardog Squadron and, later, the Demons of Razgriz.

* EscapeSequence: In one mission, after the Wardog Squadron is [[spoiler:framed for treason]], they escape by stealing a group of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BAE_Systems_Hawk BAE Systems Hawk]] training jets. {{Justified|Trope}} in that they ''could'' trash their pursuers if they wanted--let's be honest, they're the [[RedBaron Demons of Razgriz]]--but they've been [[spoiler:falsely accused and are only trying to escape and exonerate themselves, not commit fratricide]]. Not to mention that those training jets are all that they could get their hands on, as the base had locked down all the actual fighters in their hangars.

* TheWarJustBefore: Fifteen years prior to the events of the game, the nation of Belka raged war against the world for resources. Eventually the war turned against them with the two superpowers of Osea and Yuktobania, as well as other nations, pushing against them. After losing ground and territory rather than allow enemy forces to invade the birthplace of Belka, the Belkans dropped seven nuclear bombs between the northern and southern parts of their nation. This brought an end to the war with the allied forces claiming victory. Fast-forward fifteen years to the events that would take place over the course of the game, feeling that they were humiliated, forces within Belka orchestrated events causing Osea and Yuktobania to go to war with one another hoping it would weaken them both.

The fifth game in the ''AceCombat'' series, released in 2004, set mostly on the Osean Continent of [[ConstructedWorld Strangereal]] [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture in 2010]]. Although they have been staunch allies for 15 years, the Union of Yuktobanian Republics provokes and declares war upon the Osean Federation, conducting a massive invasion with nary a warning. The opening salvos are fired at Sand Island, an Osean training base where four cadets (or "nuggets") are on the verge of completing their training: Kei "Edge" Nagase, Alvin H. "Chopper" Davenport, Hans "Archer" Grimm, and Blaze (that's you!). Circumstances force these four to the forefront of the Circum-Pacific War where they will become the heroes known as the Wardog Squadron and, later, the Demons of Razgriz.

Meanwhile, in [[GaidenGame another story]], it has been one year since the end of the [[VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies Usean Continental War]] and the hostilities have more or less been stopped. However, ''yet another'' group of rogue Erusian officers have vowed to keep fighting the good fight. Calling themselves "Free Erusea", they have raided an abandoned factory from the war and seized a rather large arsenal of weapons. To defeat them, the Independent State Allied Forces initiate ''Operation Katina'' -- complete and total pacification of all enemy forces. To this end, they deploy the hero of the war, Mobius One, to get the job done, with a little help, of course, from AWACS Sky Eye.
