* JustPlaneWrong: No, not every plane in the game SHOULD be able to perform High G turns... Or perhaps, [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality maybe they should, given that it's a game]].

* BadassCrew: The Emmerian Air Force, a close-knit group of BashBrothers who basically turn the tide of war on their own. Of course, the best example is your squadron, Garuda Team.

* ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask: Basically every mission, where you juggle several ops at once and you have to choose which ones you want to do.



* ThemeNaming: The callsigns for allied pilots all follow a certain theme depending on the squadron. For instance, the 15th squadron's theme is types of falcons (Windhover, Lanner, Saker) and the 2nd's theme is snow (Avalanche, Blizzard, Serac). Garuda, your squadron, follows the names of lucky charms (Talisman, Shamrock), which is fitting considering [[ItsAllUpToYou every operation you take part in suddenly becomes a thousand times better]].

* WholePlotReference: A nameless AcePilot single-handedly turns the tide of the war between his home country, the FantasyCounterpartCulture of the InvadedStatesOfAmerica, and a [[MakeTheBearAngryAgain fictionalized USSR/Russia]], after the latter has [[OvernightConquest conquered most of the former within days]] to [[RussianGuySuffersMost gain resources after the devastation]] caused by the [[CataclysmBackstory Ulysses 1994XF04 planetfall]]. His ArchNemesis is the leader of an elite squadron who sees him as a WorthyOpponent and has AFatherToHisMen attitude to make you feel sorry for killing him. Meanwhile, on the ground, some unrelated individuals act out the WarIsHell routine in the intermission cutscenes. Now, is this ''Ace Combat 6'' or ''VideoGame/{{Ace Combat 04|ShatteredSkies}}''? Also, some of the most striking mission overlaps:

* AdventureDuo: Implied. Shamrock cracks wise and takes bets with the rest of the Air Force, while Talisman is said to take things a little more seriously.



** Mission 10 is especially hilarious for lampshading this. Operation C for this mission has you flying through small tunnels to shoot down facilities. Despite having been done several times over all the previous games in historical battles against massive superweapons, both your allies and your enemies think you're insane for doing it.

** Mission 10 is especially hilarious for lampshading this. Operation C for this said mission has you flying through small tunnels to shoot down facilities. Despite having been done several times in a little over all the previous games past 15 years in historical battles against massive superweapons, both your allies and your enemies think you're insane for doing it.



** In terms of gameplay, the Emmerian military is very much this, compared to allied armies in previous Ace Combat games. You'll routinely see your allies make kills, and in almost every mission, at least one of the other squadrons/ground teams are capable of completing their objective without your help. And when you do help them out, they're more than willing to [[BigDamnHeroes return]] [[IGotYouCovered the]] [[MacrossMissileMassacre favor]].

** During the Ragno Fortress mission, if you take the operation that requires you to fly through the tunnels under the base, you can hear intercepted radio chatter from the garrison that can basically be summed up as "Holy shit he's UNDER OUR BASE, BLOWING OUR SHIT UP!"
** Civilian radio stations outright fanboy the Garuda team. You're even compared to movie stars at one point.

Added DiffLines:

* WeaponOfChoice: Talisman is shown on the boxart using the F-15E Strike Eagle, while Shamrock uses the F-16C Fighting Falcon. Appropriate, given they're [[JackOfAllStats multirole aircraft]], and the game focuses on doing several operations at once.

** Lorenz Riedel from [[VideoGame/AceCombatZeroTheBelkanWar World Without Boundaries]] also helped build and fund the Aigaion project based on the Hraesvelgr, which lead to the construction of the Aigaion and her escorts, the Generals' victory in the civil war, and the events of the game. However, he only appears in one mission and has no onscreen impact on the story whatsoever.

** Not only that, an ace from that game appears in the same mission.



* HyperspaceArsenal: The most outlandish example in the entire series. Missiles for each plane numbered from 50-80 in the previous installments. They can now reach up to '800' depending on the plane. Considering the far larger scale of the games' missions [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality this was probably necessary]].

* JackOfAllStats: The DLC Gryphus Emblem F-22 in ''6'' literally breathes this trope. So much, that on the stat chart it looks like a perfect hexagon. The [=MiG-29=] Fulcrum is also shown to be like this.

** All are justified except for Pasternak's [[ThatOneBoss CFA-44 Nosferatu]]: The Railgun was made BEFORE Ulysses as a possibility to shoot it down, but it didn't work out. The Aigaion was a desperate attempt to stop the civil war that ravaged Estovakia, which DID work and helped unite the country.
