* {{Badass}}: Storm-1, the player character and a HeroicMime. Just think about it. He almost single-handedly repels and defeats an invasion of Earth by thousands upon thousands of alien invaders wielding weapons more powerful and advanced than anything Earth had ever seen. These include hordes of giant, mutant ants and spiders, powerful combat robots, fleets of small airships, fleets of large carrier ships that deploy more giant ants and spiders, humongous fire-breathing dinosaurs, humongous cyber-dinosaurs armed with dual plasma cannons, a gigantic four-legged walking robot with an absurd amount of lasers (including one that it uses to decimate cities), [[spoiler:and the alien mothership, which has even more lasers than the four-legged walker that can deploys air ships ''and'' has an even more powerful city decimating laser]]. He does all of this while being able to carry two weapons to the battlefield at a time, some armor, and the ability to roll. All of the other EDF soldiers are mostly useless and are nothing compared to him. There is a reason that Storm-1 alone is sent to destroy entire mutant bug nests and back up whole teams later in the game.

* BugWar: The majority of the time you'll be pitted against titanic ants and spiders. Granted, spiders aren't insects, [[BillBailey but in this war they've chosen to side with the insects]].

Added DiffLines:

* WeComeInPeaceShootToKill: It's initially all but completely taken for granted that the Ravagers will be peaceful and benevolent, and there's even initially some doubt whether the giant insects are related. Bizarrely, they're actually labeled Ravagers ''before'' it's concluded they're hostile.

* NoExportForYou: This game is actually the third in the ''Chikyuu Boueigun'' series; the first two installments were on the PS2 and never came out in America, although they were released in Europe as ''Monster Attack'' and ''Global Defense Force''.

Added DiffLines:

* LivingLegend: Storm-1 gets quite a reputation for repeatedly achieving victory in even extreme circumstances and surviving what should be certain death. By Mission 39, his mere presence on the battlefield is enough for EDF Command to consider the possibility of victory in what would otherwise be a hopeless situation.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityReboot: Well, to what degree the series has much of a story. It's back to 2017 and only ground infantry like the first game, while 2 took place in 2018 and had the first appearance of the series' alien-tech-using jetpack troops.

Added DiffLines:

* EliteMook: Storm-1 starts off as this -- a member of the more elite Storm teams of basic EDF infantry. It doesn't take long before he's being given tactical command of operations and directly counted on for the most dangerous assignments after his habit of coming back alive from sometimes literally impossible missions where he's frequently the sole survivor starts becoming clear.
