* BackToBackBadasses - [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Kamille Bidan, Quattro Bagina and Amuro Ray]] do this with [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Shinn Asuka, Kira Yamato and Athrun Zala]] in R. And it is [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome awesome]].

** A more subtle example happens at the end of said introductions, where the heroes fly away into the distance at the end. In ACE 1, the mecha fly away at breakneck speed, with Akito Tenkawa of ''Nadesico'' infamy in his [[AceCustom Black Selena]] just managing to keep up with the pack. Flash forward two years for ACE 3, and now he leads the protagonist flight at the end of the game's intro as they fly off into the distance.

* FighterLaunchingSequence - Due to the heavy usage of Real Robots in the series, this was an incredibly common occurrence in the series' first three entries, which each installment handling them differently due to the presentation. Of note is ACE 2, which involves the catapult and flight deck of the protagonist's flagship folding out to make a runway that reveals the player's chosen mecha. This also shows off a genre shift by adding cut-ins of the pilot's eyeline shouting either a catchphrase or requesting permission to launch. A subtly comedic example of this is the [[Anime/AuraBattlerDunbine Billbine]], where Cham Fau attempts to authorize it for launch, only for Show to brush her out of the way and say it instead.

Added DiffLines:

*RammingAlwaysWorks - How the [[Anime/BlueCometSPTLayzner Layzner]]'s V-MAX System works in ACE, as well as what the Black Selena and Nirvash's melee attacks look like.


Added DiffLines:

*YouDontLookLikeYou - The Nadesico's crew in ACE 2 upon seeing [[Main/ButtMonkey Akito Tenkawa]] as the [[Main/NamesToRunAwayFrom Prince of Darkness]], especially considering the crew still has [[Main/SacrificialLamb Gai Daigouji]] with them.

* BookEnds - The first and last games in the series have their intros consisting of the playable robots dismantling a large military force in a somehow abandoned city. The latter kicks things up a notch by replacing the enemy's tanks and jets with [[{{Franchise/Gundam}} mobile suits]] that still get blown to smithereens by the heroes regardless.

**ACE 2 has bookends of its own in-story, as it begins and ends with OriginalGeneration characters Tak and Marina in a private conversation, during a fight.

* ShootTheDog - Surprisingly done in R, by Kira "Shalt not kill" Yamato. When Winter forcibily takes command of Spring upon her loss and makes her attempt a kamikaze attack on Ark Alpha, Autumn-Four moves to destroy her, but Kira quickly snipes Spring down with a dragoon before Autumn can fire, killing her. He says he feels bad for killing her, but also didn't want Autumn to have to kill her "sister".

** Subverted somewhat in R: Variable Fighters from Macross franchise are no longer capable of sustained flight in Battroid mode; also, when the heroes proceed to ascend towards space, [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Arm Slaves]], Mobile Suits from [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Universal]] [[MobileSuitCrossboneGundam Century]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Cosmic Era]] universes, Anime/{{Overm|anKingGainer}}en, and the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Earth Federation Army robots]] break off from the party to storm an orbital elevator rather than sitting out on actions (as most of them cannot leave planetary atmospheres under their own power, much less defend their capital ships along the way). In addition to being a diversionary attack, this move also serves to utilize the elevator, which can catapult them into space to link up with the rest of the party if they do slip past local enemy defenses.

* CrapsackWorld / AfterTheEnd - "Earth B" in 3, thanks to it being the home of ''Anime/EurekaSeven'', [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]], OvermanKingGainer and [[Manga/GetterRobo Getter Robo Armageddon]]

Shortly thereafter, they meet about half the cast; over the course of the next two or three stages, they meet the other half, which necessitates a lot of introductions and {{Exposition}} (so newcomers know what an [[OvermanKingGainer Exodus]], [[Anime/CodeGeass Britannian]] and Anime/{{M|acrossFrontier}}iclone are)
