*** 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''.

* NewYearHasCome: Used symbolically. The final mission takes place on December 31. [[spoiler: 15 years before the FinalBoss of the last game... To signify the coming of a new era]].



* OldSaveBonus: You can unlock the X-02 Wyvern and ADF-01 FALKEN superfighters more easily if you have save data from ''Shattered Skies'' and/or ''Unsung War'', respectively. Players with save data from both games need only complete Mission 1 to unlock ''both'' superfighters for purchase. ''Affording'' them, on the other hand...
* OminousLatinChanting: ''"Zero"''.

* OminousLatinChanting: ''"Zero"''. But in truth, seeing as its a remix of "The Unsung War", it's actually heroic Latin chanting.

* Myth/KingArthur: ''Ace Combat Zero'' is so positively rich with Arthurian motifs. Notable ones included names like the "Hydrian Line"[[note]]A mistranslation of "Hadrian's Wall"[[/note]] as a defended area and "The Round Table" as a nickname for a famous battlefield. Also present are the Excalibur laser tower (complete with a comment from a soldier after its destruction that "the sword has been pulled from the stone") and fighter pilots with names like Joshua "Lucan" Bristow and Anthony "Bedivere" Palmer. Furthermore, members of A World With No Boundaries begin to refer to [[spoiler:Pixy]] as their "King" and note that he has departed for "Avalon", actually a code name for a weapons lab hidden under an artificial lake, and at the end of the game the last boss fights you in a plane called the ADFX-02 "Morgan" and the mastermind behind A World With No Boundaries delivers his final speech from prison where he is serving his life sentence for war crimes, much like Merlin locked in his stone tower (appropriate for the leader of a squadron named "Wizard").
** Don't forget that the only way for you to finish off said last boss is [[spoiler:[[AirJousting pretty much as close as jet fighters can get to knightly jousting]]]]. When combined with the epic, EPIC musical score playing, it was also the game's CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* CerebusSyndrome: Missions 9 and 10 are the highest point in the game, with you feeling like the king of the world for destroying a humongous superweapon and conquering the Round Table. Mission 11 has [[spoiler: your side bombing civilian territory]]. Mission 12 [[spoiler: takes place on the day Belkan detonated seven nukes]]. And it goes waaaaaaay downhill from there.

* SequentialBoss: Morgan.

to:

* SequentialBoss: Morgan. First, it only uses its Tactical Laser System. After a few hits it follows up with [[SlapOnTheWristNuke its Multi-Purpose Burst Missile]], and then you destroy both. Then it activates V2, and you have 5 minutes to shoot down the Morgan, [[AirJousting by literally jousting it from the front with arrowhead attacks]]. Justified, as the first two phases are you stalling for time as your AWACS analyzes the Morgan for any weaknesses.



** Grun Squadron all fly F/A-18C Hornets. [[StealthPun In other words]], they're all [[Franchise/TheGreenHornet Green Hornets]]. (As an added bonus, they all actually use [[http://images.wikia.com/acecombat/images/9/9f/Grun.jpg a green paint scheme]].)
