* VillainTeleportation: Vandheer Lorde, in almost every game featuring him. The only game in which he does not is [=AWW2=] -- the one where you play as him. Especially prominent in ''[=AWW3=]'' and ''Culmination'', and '''[[UpToEleven especially]]''' in ''Culmination'', seeing as [[spoiler:the player will likely be spamming them to hell and back in sheer glee.]]

* TurnsRed: Vandheer starts off doing little but his basic combo (though even that has a long range and is pretty punishing), and he leaves himself vulnerable doing it. As time goes on, he starts using his teleport slash at the end of it, simultaneously leaving less room to hit him and doing more damage himself. He also uses his specials a lot more later on. He also begins to run instead of walking at the midpoint of the battle. [[SerialEscalation By the end of the battle]], [[RuleOfCool he's pulling off crazy stunts]] like a ''long'' sequence of {{Flash Step}}s all over the place before attacking, and ''[[{{Flight}} flying]]'' in order to [[DeathFromAbove drop a bolt of energy on you.]]

There is a world, not unlike ours, but not quite like ours either. In this world, reigns an [[BigBad evil tyrant]] going by the name of Vandheer [[MeaningfulName Lorde]]. Five years ago, an army of rebels stood up to defeat the king. They failed, and were all slaughtered.

Added DiffLines:

* BreakingOutTheBoss: Inverted: it's the boss ([[GodOfEvil Network]]) who breaks out his subordinate ([[EvilOverlord Vandheer Lorde]]). [[spoiler:But played somewhat straight in that it is Vandheer who is the FinalBoss, not Network]].


Added DiffLines:

* DoppelgangerSpin: One of Vandheer's attacks involves confusing the enemy with a flurry of movements so fast they leave afterimages, before delivering a powerful uppercut with his sword.

* DyingAlone: The Lone Warrior in the end.

to:

* ContinuityNod: Vandheer has the same moveset as in ''Armed With Wings 3'' - though he's now [[ThatOneBoss a lot more brutal with it]].
* [[spoiler:DuelingPlayerCharacters]]: [[spoiler:Depending on your difficulty, you'll get to play as either Vandheer or Lone Warrior against the other.]]
* DyingAlone: The Lone Warrior in the end.end, [[spoiler:though we know it doesn't stick]].


Added DiffLines:

* MirrorBoss: Lone Warrior's battle against Vandheer is one this time around. Two agile swordfighters with three special moves each (though Lone Warrior's ultimate is useless on Vandheer) and many combo possibilities - perhaps more than any other boss in this series, this is a battle of pure skill. Of course, Vandheer's attacks have a longer range and he's not limited by energy.


Added DiffLines:

* NoSell: Do not even try to use Lone Warrior's ultimate move on Vandheer. He is immune to it, and you'll just waste energy you could have used for power slashing him.

** Vandheer as usual can teleport, but he normally does not spam it, however [[spoiler:when you take control of him for the Normal difficulty battle, you have the option to spam his teleport slash over and over again. It's a GameBreaker because the AI cannot avoid it and Vandheer never loses energy, so you can spam it to your heart's content with no retaliation and tear Lone Warrior apart.]]

* BossOnlyLevel: The few levels preceding the final boss have no enemies at all and are only there to raise the tension.



* BossOnlyLevel: Much like in the previous game, before reaching Network and Vandheer, you cross some empty territory with no enemies at all.



* FlamingSkulls: You fight such enemies in the fourth level. And the boss of said level is a giant, [[PlayingWithFire pyrokinetic]] version.

* BlownAcrossTheRoom: Most bosses have power attacks that will send Vandheer flying - usually that's the last attack in their combo chain. This is a bad thing because most bosses have BottomlessPits around their arena. Hawken is particularly rage-inducing with this, because his knockback move is dished out using his WhipSword, which has an ''immense'' range.



* PlayingWithFire: Quema Tormenta, and Vandheer with the sword of Fire.

to:

* PlayingWithFire: Quema Tormenta, and Vandheer with the sword of Fire. Oddly enough, Smoking Martillo wields the sword of Fire but does not have any Fire attacks.



* ShockAndAwe: With the sword of Lightning.



* SuperSmoke: Smoking Martillo can turn to smoke and push an enemy away with smoke clouds.

to:

* SuperSmoke: Smoking Martillo can turn to smoke and push an enemy away with smoke clouds. In easier difficulty modes, he is visible when turned to smoke, but not on Hard.
