'''''Armored Core 2''''': Sixty-seven years after the first game, Earth's second largest corporation, Zio Matrix, attains the plans for a research project on Mars, dating back before the Great Destruction. They launch the terraforming project, which causes the Martian atmosphere to approximate Earth's. The other corporations learn of the project, and follow Zio Matrix to Mars, bringing the battle between them from Earth to Mars. As a Raven, a mercenary of the group Nerves Concord (similar to the Ravens' Nest of old), you don't care about any of that. It's all about the money.

'''''Armored Core 3''''': Set in a post-apocalyptic future, society lives in a subterranean society known as Layered. It is ruled by an AI construct known only as the Controller, which dictates nearly everything that goes on in the world. The major corporations Mirage and Crest and the smaller Kisaragi vie for dominance. The Controller's strange actions seem to indicate that it is going haywire. You play a Raven of the game's mercenary group, this time known as 'Global Cortex'.

'''''VideoGame/ArmoredCore4''''': The human population experienced an exponential increase, putting a strain on global food supply. As populations increased, so did the gap between the rich and the poor. The governments of the world began to lose control of their populations, and the six major corporations stepped in, declaring an all-out war. Using advanced AC technology known as NEXT that relies on Kojima Armor, they toppled the world's governments in less than a month, and worked out a new system of government, Pax Economica. Under this system, loyalty to the corporations provides one with food and shelter, essentially forcing people to be slaves. The Ravens have essentially been destroyed, and most pilots are either forced to patrol the colonies for meager pay, or side with one of the armed rebellion groups.

'''''VideoGame/ArmoredCoreV''''': After long, bloody wars have polluted most of the Earth, humanity is sequestered in a portion of land that has grown into a large Megapolis simply called The City. Led by a despotic ruler called "Father", The City manages to get by even during harshest of conflicts, except when the [[LaResistance Resistance]] takes matters into their own hands and initiates a coup, emboldened by the addition of a very skilled AC pilot: you. However, things get complicated when a nefarious third party called The Corporation seemingly aids Father by supplying strange, often powerful technology, while at the same time pursuing the Player Character relentlessly.

* CurbStompBattle: Poor Arms Fort Stigro's mission takes longer to load up than it does to destroy the target. The target is a colossal missile-launching hydrofoil with a giant bow-mounted sword blade. Know what else it has? No defense at all against laser blades.

* CharacterCustomization: Thanks to the number of body parts and weapons a SelfImposedChallenge can be to make up the sleek [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]] or [[Anime/{{Macross}} Veritach]] robots, the Fujikoma from ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell'', your very own Franchise/MetalGear, a MightyMorphinPowerRangers Zord, or anything in between. Then there's the reverse joints and tank treads.

* MemeticBadass: In-universe example; Nineball/Hustler One isn't actually the first/only one to hold the spot of #1 pilot, just the one that managed to hold it the ''longest''. As a result, the titles given to those that get to #1 are called "Ninebreakers." Nineball himself is practically a fan-based one, often being cited as the hardest boss in the series (e.g. the ChuckNorris of AC's). Additionally, getting OneHundredPercentCompletion in some games gives you a piece of him (e.g. his head part, emblem, etc.)

* SchematizedProp: And 'how'. ''Every'' part has exact and in-depth specifications for any attribute the part applies to, even the [[AwesomeButImpractical ones no one in their right mind would use]].

The ''Armored Core'' series is a mech-combat video game series developed by FromSoftware. It started on the original PlayStation, and over the years, has been on the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2, [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP]], UsefulNotes/PlayStation3, UsefulNotes/XBox360, and mobile phones. With the exception of ''Armored Core 2'', each numbered sequel seems to take place in a different continuity, separate from previous, and later, numbered titles.
