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.

* GiantSpider: Oh yes. Even if you're not an arachnophobe, you have to admit they're pretty damn ugly. Oh yeah, they [[InASingleBound can]] [[LightningBruiser jump!]].

And on top of that, they can stun you with webs that slow you down and deal damage simultaneously, a guaranteed quick kill on higher levels.

* ItsUpToYouItsUpToYou: Your allies are essentially little more than meat shields on higher difficulties. On lower ones they're a bit more useful but will likely take heavy casualties anyway.


Added DiffLines:

* OneManArmy: Storm-1, being the only man capable of killing all the Ravagers. His/her teammates are little more than distractions.
