* WouldNotShootACivilian: Played straight with your allies Pixy and PJ, who will only target combatants. Cipher also adheres to this if played as a Knight. Averted hard with the Allied Forces in Mission 11, when you're tasked with accompanying a surgical strike that quickly turns into saturation bombing.

** Subverted with the Belkan remnant forces, who at first seem to be continuing to fight even after Belka has been defeated on every front. Eventually it's revealed that they're actually [[spoiler: an NGOSuperpower made of defectors from Belka and the Allied Forces, united as the radically anti-nationalist World with no Boundaries.]]



* PeaceConference: According to the Narrator in ''Zero'', a peace conference was held in Lumen, a city on the border between Belka and Osea, to end the Belkan War.

* TakingTheBullet: Seen in the penultimate level, where Galm and the Allied Forces launch a massive air raid on Avalon Dam, the headquarters of [[spouiler:a World with No Boundaries]]. Since the dam is blanketed by anti-air fire, the Allied pilots fly en masse against its defenses to [[WeNeedADistraction give Galm Team a chance to get to the dam in the chaos]]. Most of them are killed or at least shot down, though a handful may survive long enough to engage the enemy pilots above.

** One version of Mission 4 involves escorting the Allied Fleet, including the [[VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar aircraft carrier Kestrel]]. The main goal is to get the Kestrel out alive, and two or three allied ships being sunk is fairly normal for a good run of the mission. But with good reaction time, memorization of where the anti-ship planes attack from, and long-range weapons, it is entirely possible to escort the entire fleet with no losses.

* MissionPackSequel: Serves as a prequel to ''[[VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar]]'', greatly expanding upon the [[TheWarJustBefore Belkan War]] and having a handful of Unsung War's characters in cameos. Fittingly, the game itself looks and plays more or less exactly like 5, and even features a couple of the same areas.

* BittersweetEnding: On various fronts.
** The Allied Counterattack arc of the game, spanning from missions 7 through 12, ends with Belka being decisively defeated and the war officially coming to an end. However, this only comes after the Allied Forces' [[ObligatoryWarCrimeScene bombing of Hoffnung]] and Belka [[spoiler: detonating nuclear weapons on their own soil]] in an attempt to stave off the invasion. Worse still, the combined weight of these events causes your wingman Pixy [[spoiler: to go rogue and attack you, not to be seen again until the final level.]]
** The final third of the game ends this way as well, arguably more bitter than the former example. Cipher's replacement wingman, PJ, is [[spoiler: shot down and killed by the now-rogue Pixy, who proceeds to engage in seemingly a battle to the death with Cipher.]] Cipher successfully manages to shoot down [[spoiler: Pixy during their battle]], and thus prevent a nuclear apocalypse in the process. For reasons unknown to anyone but himself, Cipher disappears from the battlefield and from history immediately afterwards, never to be seen again.

*** Heierlark Air Force Base, where the Wardog Squadron was trained, serves as a refueling point in Mission 13. The mission itself also takes place in the same area Missions 21 and 22 did in ''5''.
