* WolverinePublicity: While the Japanese market title is ''Ace Combat 3D: Cross Rumble'', Creator/NamcoBandai branded the North American and European versions with a similar title to ''VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizon'', even going so far as using ''Assault Horizon'''s cover art and logo style for ''Assault Horizon Legacy.'' Strangereal fans haven't been too happy about that.

* OutsideContextVillain: There is literally no clues or revelations of who or what the Z.O.E. is. Cocoon Squadron initially wonders who's side they're on when it interrupts their fight. No names or identifications are mentioned. "Z.O.E, or "Zone of Endless" is only given for the player's sake.

* WorthyOpponent: If you prolong your fight with Cocoon Squadron without taking out any planes long enough, Camilla will entertain the idea of asking you to join her squadron. Edgar Grint is an honorable ace who thanks you for the opportunity to battle you, and has no regrets when he loses.

* ArtificialStupidity: Enemy planes can, and (sooner or later) will crash into the terrain because their plane is incapable of turning faster enough. This can be the result of you or them using the Maneuver System at low altitudes, but sometimes they just blank out and fly right into the ground.

This can be the result of you or them using the Maneuver System at low altitudes, but sometimes they just blank out and fly right into the ground. One of the three F/A-18E Super Hornets trying to protect the enemy headquarters at the end of "Kingpin" is very likely to crash when you're still flying after the first two.



* CompositeCharacter: Some of the returning named aces from ''Ace Combat 2'' now share a single plane. For example, ''[=AC2=]'' had two Tornado F.3s piloted by Max and Goose. In ''AHL'' they fly a single YF-23A as "Max&Goose."

Come ''Ace Combat 2'' now share a single plane. For example, ''[=AC2=]'' had two Tornado F.3s piloted by Max 4'', the Yellow Squadron hails from the western part of USEA, and Goose. In ''AHL'' they fly their official designation is "Aquila" (Eagle.)
** Kei Nagase's profile mentions that she wants to become
a single YF-23A as "Max&Goose."commercial airline pilot. Come ''Ace Combat 4'', you have to escort and protect a 747 where she is the first officer taking over the controls for the injured captain.

** Pixy's paint scheme is available for the F-15SE Silent Eagle, and the F-15 S/MTD has one that somewhat resembles Cipher's.
*** Schwarze Squadron's paint scheme is available for the [=MiG-31=] Foxhound. The F-16C likewise has an unlockable paint job similar to the ones used by Silber Squadron.

* [[LethalJokeCharacter Lethal Joke Plane]]: Aircraft like the [=MiG=]-21-93 and ''especially'' the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII F6F-5 Hellcat and A6M5 Zero]]. The [=MiG-21=] has rather poor stats as a beginning aircraft, and the [=F6F-5=] and [=A6M5=] are prop-driven planes with no homing missiles, regular or special--but thanks to both the Maneuvers and customization system, these planes can shred even the mighty [[FinalBoss FALKEN]] to pieces. Even without Maneuvers or the customization system, the planes are still ''extremely'' agile (the Hellcat has the second highest mobility potential in the game, second only to the XFA-27), and the [=F6F-5=] and [=A6M5=] in particular have some of the most powerful [[MoreDakka machine guns]] of all the planes in-game.

* FragileSpeedster: Many of the planes can become this with the right customization. The usual trade-off on equipment is that you trade off defense for speed, mobility, and/or stability. This turns you into a OneHitpointWonder on harder difficulties, but that's a staple of the series anyway.

** Similarly, Cipher's unit in ''Ace Combat Zero'' was named Galm Team, although here the ShoutOut computer software "Garm's Eye" is correctly spelled in accordance with the [[NorseMythology original reference]] ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS The Japanese L/R thing is the reason for the error in the first place]]).
