The series spans six games, the first being on dedicated arcade hardware and the latter two being on the UsefulNotes/NeoGeo arcade platform. ''Aero Fighters 1'' and ''2'' utilize modern fighter jets, but ''3'' has the cast using UsefulNotes/WorldWarII-era planes instead. The next game, ''Sonic Wings Limited'' stayed exclusive to the Zinc arcade board, while ''Sonic Wings Special'' was released for the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn and the Playstation. The last installment, ''Aero Fighters Assault'', was exclusive to the Nintendo64 and [[OddballInTheSeries strayed from the formula]], being a halfway realistic 3D flight simulation (developed by Creator/ParadigmEntertainment) instead of a vertical shoot'em up.

* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: The joke final boss in the first game was a monkey, which has since appeared in other games combined or attacking with last stage's mid boss.

* DeathFromAbove: Among others the bomb of the Harrier (AV-8) in ''Aero Fighters 1'', that causes several Vulcan bombers to carpet-down the sceen.

* FollowTheLeader: 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.
** You also 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.

* WidgetSeries: Mainly because of the huge contrast. The characters and some of the final bosses are wacky, but the rest of the game looks like any other generic millitary shoot'em up.

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

* WeaponizedLandmark - Running out of time on Mission 1 of ''Aerofighters Assault'' will not result in a game over. Instead, the Tokyo Towers will turn into a pair of laser cannons that will instantly destroy the boss [[BreatherLevel and let you go to the next mission]].
