* {{Expy}}: ''Assault'' has a few levels where you encounter a group of four enemy pilots that have the same powers as you and your wingmen. Each one will antagonize either you or one of your wingmen, forcing you to rescue them periodically. If you've played ''Starfox 64'', this probably sounds very familiar.



** The final level of ''Assault'' bears a ''very'' strong resemblance to the Venom 2 level of ''Starfox 64''. You even fight four enemy planes with abilities mirroring those of you and your wingmen before the final level, just like the final showdown with the Star Wolf Team in Venom 2. Throughout the rest of the game you have three wingmen that you ''frequently'' have to save from danger.
*** ''Assault'' only came out four months after ''Starfox 64''. It's possible the similarities are coincidental, but the two games have ''a lot'' of similarities for it to be a coincidence.



** ''VideoGame/SengokuAce'' and ''Gunbird'' are this to the first game. Both are made by a different company (Creator/{{Psikyo}} instead of Video System) but share a very similar engine and have the same director (Shin Nakamura).

to:

** After the first game was released, its director Shin Nakamura left Video System over CreativeDifferences (Nakamura wanted to keep making vertical shmups in the traditional 3:4 aspect ratio, while Video System wanted to focus on the Neo Geo which only supported a standard 4:3 aspect ratio) and founded Creator/{{Psikyo}}, which used ''Aero Fighters'' as the blueprint for the many vertically-scrolling shmups it would release until its bankruptcy in 2001 . Psikyo's first two games, ''VideoGame/SengokuAce'' and ''Gunbird'' are this to the first game. Both are made by a different company (Creator/{{Psikyo}} instead of Video System) but share a very were especially similar engine and have to ''Aero Fighters'' as they retained the same director (Shin Nakamura).mechanic of the highest power-up level having limited ammo.

* DifficultyByRegion: For some reason, ''Aero Fighters 3'' is a lot more difficult with the European BIOS than either the American mode or the Japanese original. Enemies are a lot more aggressive early on and bullets are faster.

** The first boss of ''Aero Fighters 2'' is heavily based on the gigantic spider tank from ''{{Raiden}} 2'', down to the way it explodes.

The squared-off font used in the logo was famously [[IReadThatAs misread]] by Creator/JohnGreen as [[FanCommunityNickname Nerd Fighters]].

* ExcusePlot: A terrorist organization called Fata Morgana ([[InconsistentDub Or was it]] ''Phutta'' Morgana?) is trying to TakeOverTheWorld with the help of some otherworldly creatures known as the Hildride ([[InconsistentDub or are they]] Hil''droids'')? The protagonists are part of an international peacekeeping force called "Project Blue" trying to stop them. Project Blue and the terrorists were only mentioned in the manuals for ''Special'' and ''Assault'', whereas the Hildride are mentioned a grand total of ''once'' during "The Man"'s solo ending in ''Aerofighters 3''. The first two games? No plot ''at all''.
