* TakingYouWithMe: As the lethally wounded Gleipnir is crashing, its pilot voices his desire to take as many Santa Elva civilians as he can even as his ground control pleads with him to aim for the river to minimize collateral damage.

* CoversAlwaysLie: The Leasathian F-5Es on the front cover are not only of a different paint scheme from those in-game, but that paint scheme is not available for the F-5E at all.

* NeverTrustATrailer: The voice-acting in the trailer is much different than that in the game.

''Skies of Deception'' is the first game in the ''AceCombat'' series on the PlaystationPortable and the ninth game in the series overall. Released in 2006. It focuses on the southern section of the [[AceCombat5TheUnsungWar Osean Continent]] where you play as a pilot in the air force of the Federal Republic of Aurelia. In 2020, they are invaded by the Democratic Republic of Leasath on the pretext of retaliation for their involvement in a civil war. In just ten days their superweapon, the Gleipnir aerial fortress, [[RecycledINSPACE wipes out almost the entire Aurelian air force]]. Gryphus One is the only survivor of his squadron and must lead the counterattack into Leasath territory.

* ContinuityCameo: The game is narrated by Albert Genette, the same photojournalist who narrated ''AceCombat5''. * DeepSouth: A lot of people on both sides have exagerrated accents similar to those found in the southern United States. A bit a FridgeBrilliance can be pulled from this, though; Leasath and Aurelia are located on the southern part of the Osean continent, which is the Strangereal version of the United States. * DiscOneNuke: The XFA-27 may fit this. Also, the F-5E is equipped with [=QAAMs=]. It's balanced by only carrying four, but still, that's effectively four free air kills. * DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Starting plane being the F-4E? Check. First mission protecting your base from bombers? Check. Anime-like cutscene stills? Check. The Raptor being the flagship fighter of the game? Check. [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies Yeah, totally not familiar.]]

* IAmNotLeftHanded: The Time Limit mission provides us with one as the player can't accelerate very hard at first, lest you detonate the sensitive ordinance you are carrying to disperse the poison gas that was spread on the city. The enemies in the game, not aware of your limitations, ridicule your mediocre flying at first, wondering what made you so great in the first place. [[OhCrap Their attitude quickly changes]] once you finish your task and jettison the ordinance, allowing you full maneuverability again.
