* DevelopersForesight: After the first stage, the Blacksmith will give you the new "traditional karate" style. However, if you are on a [[NewGamePlus NewGame+]], you will already have this style. The dialogue will change to reflect this. Oddly, this doesn't happen with the other styles you are given.

''[[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/436721 Armed with Wings]]'' is a free flash game on Newgrounds created by Daniel-Sun. It's a unique platformer with elements of a puzzle game and a stealth game at once, since you can not only fight enemies with your sword, but also send out your eagle to solve a variety of difficult puzzles and distract enemies as you venture through the lands to reach and face the evil ruler himself. The game, and all of its successors, are also made in a mostly black and white distinct art style, reminiscent of shadow theater. The game has become highly popular and spawned several sequels and a prequel, ''Red Moon''.

In ''Red Moon'' you play the part of Eivana as she and Hawken attempt to slay King Vandheer to seize power themselves. Since Vandheer is still around and ruling in the main game, [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption you can guess]] [[ForegoneConclusion how well that worked.]] This game is a bit more of a standard fighting platformer, and does not incorporate the eagle element.

The events of ''Armed with Wings 2'' are situated directly after ''Armed with Wings 1''. This time, [[VillainProtagonist you play the part of Vandheer Lorde]] as he struggles to regain his throne from Armed with Wings. The game is also a fighting platformer like ''Red Moon''.

''Armed with Wings 3'' appears to take place many years after the events of the first two games. The shadow of a great evil hangs over the lands, and it's up to Leo - a mere boy, Eivana's child -- to save his world. In this one, the eagle element is reintroduced, though the puzzles are much easier than in the first game. This game also has an RPG element, as Leo can gain experience, upgrade his stats, learn new skills and find new powerful spells.

The newest game in the series, ''Culmination'', follows the side story of Lone Warrior during the events of ''Armed With Wings 3'' as he sets out on his own, blinded by rage, to slay Vandheer Lorde. [[ForegoneConclusion That goes]] [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption well]]. ''Culmination'' is a short, pure fighting platformer with no puzzle elements nor level system, but it really tones up the epic attacks and combos. Thanks to a deal made between Sun Studios and Creator/CartoonNetwork, the game can also be played in the form of a ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' flash game called ''Shadow Mission'', which replaces the Lone Warrior with Robin and the BigBad with Young Justice villain Klarion, and whose plot involves Robin being pulled into a shadow dimension and having to fight his way out with the help of the other members of his team.

Daniel-Sun has continued development of Armed with Wings over time, and in 2015, he released a new commercial game that can be bought on steam early access: ''[[http://store.steampowered.com/app/340580/ Armed with Wings:Rearmed]]''. As the title indicates, it is a remastered edition of the first Armed with Wings game, with new features like boosters to increase your stats and repertoire; an enhanced combat system and an arsenal of weapons with different strengths and weaknesses. The game is being actively developed, with new features every so often.

Daniel-Sun has said that Rearmed is one of two games that he will work on, the other being called ''Armed with Wings:Versus'', which will feature many of the characters seen across the games. Development of the game has been postponed, presumably until development of Rearmed is finished. Daniel-Sun has stated that after these two games, there is a 3rd, as-of-yet unnamed game that he refers to as "The BIG ONE". It is meant to serve as a reboot of the plot for the entire series, with a story for each character.

* 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.

* 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.]]
