** Last Raven in it's entirety is a horrendously difficult game. Some missions more so than others, but to put things in perspective, one of the very first missions you can select at the start of a completely fresh run is one of the hardest missions in any game of the series.

** Last Raven in it's entirety is a horrendously difficult game. Some missions more so than others, but to put things in perspective, one of the very first missions you can select at the start of a completely fresh run is one of the hardest missions in any game of the series. It doesn't help that the game's difficulty is built around you importing a file from either Nine-Breaker or Nexus (you can't import from 3 or Silent Line due to the game's engine changing after Silent Line.) So starting Last Raven without a file import is just asking for trouble.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperDrowningSkills: Played with in that it's less like you drown, and more like if your AC submerges entirely into a body of water, typically it's treated as leaving the mission zone immediately and a failure. Hover legs can passively float over water, negating the problem.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: You potentially, if you fail to accommodate for the settings and targets of your various missions and arena outings. It's all too easy to make a heavyweight AC armed to the teeth but poor on energy [[OhCrap and go into a mission with fast opponents]] and/or you can't really support yourself over [[SuperDrowningSkills a large body of water surrounding you.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ShmuckBait: If a mission only pays an advance or if a mission only has a vague description and a big payment, it's guaranteed to be a trap.

* ShoutOut: Despite being 10 meters tall, Armored Cores have the the same feel as [[Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS VOTOMS]]. They skid across the battlefield using a combination of boosters and feet and are highly customizable. And don't get started on [[HideoKojima Kojima]] [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Particles]]...

* TeamKiller: Jack-O's entire gameplan in Last Raven is finding the strongest pilots. It gets to the point that ([[StoryBranching assuming you're taking Jack-O's missions]]) he sends you to kill Bolt, who is absolutely loyal to him, but not too bright, and Sorcerer, who is ''one of Jack-O's only friends'', just to find the strongest Raven.

Though, this is a JustifiedTrope. [[spoiler: Every Raven who is felled by a Pulverizer provides combat data that makes the next Pulverizer that comes after significantly more lethal. If that pattern continues, they will literally become unstoppable. Vertex being ordered to kill Ravens that aren't up to the task is a countermeasure against that eventuality.]]
