* AMechByAnyOtherName: The Battle Games originally ''were'' fought using outdated tanks, but as time went on humanoid vehicles were built from the ground up for them. Most are still roughly tank sized (Falcon is 8.25 meters tall, for example), so the name "standing tank" stuck(the Tornado and upgraded Falcon really push it though, standing at 11.95 and 12.88 meters, respectively).

* FragileSpeedster: Siamang's rarely reaches it's top speed and tends to let you center it when it attacks, making it vulnerable to bombs(too bad [[EarlyBirdBoss Falcon's likely to only have one when you fight it]]), but it can change direction quickly to get out of your sight, "jump" over your energy bolts and attack several times in rapid succession. And it's narrow body makes it relatively hard to hit(except, of course, with bombs).

* GladiatorGames: Battle Games are BreadAndCircuses meant to distract the disgruntled public until the ruins of civilization are repaired. Rather than death, the draw is that the losers of the game have to serve the winners, which is how Anubis builds up his power in the first game. It is said Anubis almost had to kill Dayan, who initially refused to serve Anubis and had to be thoroughly trashed.

It's also said though, that Mike aimed to do away with this stipulation after defeating Anubis, so if he succeeded, it makes since Dayan wouldn't readily serve him three years later.



* HighSpeedBattle: Most fights in the first game have some element of this, with your standing tank hitting at least 100 KPH at least once, meaning Ivan is the one who stands out for being pretty slow paced. It is on a boat, so not much place to speed to. The standing tanks of "Metal Combat" don't boast the same top speeds, excepting Siamang, which you might just beat before it gets there, until you get to Viscount.

* WanderingMinstrel: Lorca is known as a "bard" because his standing tank of the same name plays music. Although in battle this is just a distraction, usually from its "sonic spin" attack, so Lorca should be shot as soon as its "hymn" is heard.

** Garam, Thanatos 1 and Siamang do this, and yes, these "baseball pitches" are more powerful than their standard shots. Rola's standing tank has it's own variation in "Metal Combat". Griffin and Virvius 1 do this with their ''legs'', allowing for a triple super for the latter shout when it also charges up its arms and spiky shoulders. Viscount will resort to it if it happens to lose both its gun and shield(though the latter is unlikely).

** Alfred from ''Battle Clash'' does not make an appearance in ''Metal Combat: Falcon's Revenge'', Chada's standing tank Siamang, Dayan's standing tank Wong and Orusoh's standing tank Griffin are the result of Alfred's continued research.

* NonIndicativeName: Standing tanks are roughly tank sized, to be fair, but most of them float above the ground instead of standing. And the one that does stand is much bigger than a tank. Then come the second game, Rola's training ST doesn't even have legs, nor does Wong, and these new machines, possibly including yours, are all noticeably larger than tanks.

* WhoNeedsTheirWholeBody: Rola's standing tank will continue to crawl along the ground with one arm if you blow apart its torso. And if you don't finish her off she will start shooting at you. She takes training pretty seriously. This is a subtle warning that enemy tanks in ''Metal Combat'' will ''not'' give up the fight until their life bar is empty.

** Eddie and the ST Valius. To start things off, he's the 3rd-to-last enemy in the game, which qualifies his skill. His power comes from the sheer variety of attacks he has, from firing volleys of missles to blasting away with his twin shoulder mounted laser cannons. See BeyondTheImpossible for an example of his speed, but also know that he is also able to create illusory doubles and even causes the [[InterfaceScrew screen to bob back and forth from trying to catch up with him.]] He can also easily take hits, as you'll still need to fire several energy bolts at him ''even if you blow off the entire lower half of his mech.''
