* ApocalypseHow: Class 3a to Class X should be expected if [=EDF=] were to fail, depending on what exactly the Ravagers intend to do with Earth.



* BadassNormal: Rangers are just normal soldiers trained to the peaks of human performance. Their equipment is top notch, but underneath it all, they're just standard homo sapiens.



* DeathFromAbove: The Air Raiders forte is calling in various flavors of these. Airstrikes, missiles, orbital lasers - You name it, he's got it.

to:

* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Rangers are stated to go through some sort of training that allows them to dive roll through many obstacles. Including steel railing meant to stop cars.
* DarkestHour: [[spoiler:All of [=EDF=] has been reduced to what can fit on one carrier ship at the end of 4.1. Mankind stares into its own extinction. A final voluntary mission intended as a combination of SuicideMission and FaceDeathWithDignity is launched at the ravager brain, with little to no expectation of it actually succeeding.]]
* DeathFromAbove: The Air Raiders forte is calling in various flavors of these. Airstrikes, missiles, orbital lasers - You name it, he's got it. it.
* DecapitatedArmy: The ravagers really don't handle their big cheese getting blown up very well and tend to give up soon after that. Justified in the case of the giant ants, given their HiveMind. [[Spoiler:The destruction of the brain by Storm Team also causes the entire ravager fleet to withdraw from Earth, despite having nearly destroyed all of human civilization by that point.]]


Added DiffLines:

* FaceDeathWithDignity: Participants in a particular SuicideMission were encouraged to think of it this way.

* FluffyTheTerrible: "Hector" isn't exactly a name befitting a 10-story-tall HumongousMecha capable of trampling over houses. They're tough customers despite the name.

* FluffyTheTerrible: "Hector" isn't exactly a name befitting a 10-story-tall HumongousMecha capable of trampling over houses. They're tough customers despite the name. It also makes more sense, (and becomes a GeniusBonus) when you know that Hector is the mighty warrior-prince of Troy in Literature/TheIliad.
