** ''Gun Hazard'' manages it to make things more confusing, not always stating exactly where some of the missions take place country-wise. Bergen is in Norway, Cenktrich is in Switzerland, Esporte is in Brazil, Sivilska is in Russia, Vorkuta is former Russian territory now separated, Al-Hari is around Saudi Arabia and the others? Beats me..

to:

*SquadNickname: There's atleast one per game.
** ''Gun ''FM Alternative'' has the IMAC (Independent Mobile Assault Company), Bamia, Sinsemilla, and the Cerberus Garde
** ''FM 2089'' and ''FM 2089-II'' have the Storm Unit, Chariots, and the Vampires
** ''FM 1st'' has the Canyon Crows, Hell's Wall, Black Hounds, and the Silver Lynxes

** ''5'' has the Strike Wyverns and the Barghest
** ''FM Evolved'' has Apollo's Chariot
** ''FM Gun
Hazard'' manages it to make things more confusing, not always stating exactly where some of has the missions take place country-wise.

* BadassNormal: [[TheHero Walter Feng]] from ''5'' counts. Though [[spoiler: the [[WesternTerrorists Grimnir]]]] are all pilots using [[spoiler: BD S-Type devices to control their wanzers like their own bodies (making them [[SuperSoldier Super Soldiers]])]], Walter is able to beat them simply through hard work... after he trains with [[spoiler: the Barghest's own S-Type pilots for ''years'']]. Your squad as a whole can count if you have no S-Type pilots in it, [[spoiler: except for Hector Reynolds, who's [[BadassGrandpa badass enough]] anyway]].
** In fact, most of the main protagonists are this trope to some degree.

* {{Badass}}: Anyone who's ever played any of the games or gotten into the other media should know very well that [[GenreSavvy you have to be one if you want to survive]] given [[CrapsackWorld how the state of the world is like]].
** BadassCrew: Every group that the main protagonists join is or ends up as this.
*** The IMAC (''Alternative'') was apparently tough enough to be one of the world's only forces to be given [=WAW=] units, the most state-of-the-art technology of their era.
*** ''Online'' also has Chasm Owls and Proud Eagles.
*** The Storm Unit (''2089'') and the Chariots (''2089-II'') fight [[spoiler: the [[TheDreaded Vampires]]]]. Both groups defeat the latter regularly, though not without some rough battles.
*** And of course... we have the legendary Canyon Crows (''1st''). Sure, the USN can boast about the [[BadassArmy Hell's Wall]] all they want, but at the end of the day, the crows just blow them into bits and march straight into Freedom City anyway.
*** The Silver Lynxes (''1st'') are pretty awesome. See the {{Awesome}} page for some details.
*** The unified Burg Transportation force (''2'') consists of the Muddy Otters, Dull Stags, and OCU GDFIA 2nd Division. Yeah, this group [[spoiler: fights [[BaseOnWheels mobile fortresses]] ''twice'' and saves Alordesh from being blown up by nuclear missiles]].
*** Kazuki's TrueCompanions (''3'') eventually grows into this over the course of their stories. Both campaigns, no less.
*** ''4'' brings us the Durandal, who [[BadassBookworm research military uses of wanzers]], and use their knowledge to [[spoiler: stop a world war]]; and [[LaResistance La Alianza de Libertad Venezolana]], who, despite subpar equipment, manage to force [[spoiler: Zaftrans]] to retreat from Venezuela.
*** Lastly, in ''5'' we have the [[SemperFi Strike Wyverns]] and ''especially'' the [[NameToRunAwayFromReallyFast Barghest]].
*** Another noteworthy example is the [[PrivateMilitaryContractors Akatsuki Unit]] from ''The Drive''. They are able to dispatch a mobile weapon and [[spoiler: rout an USN force several times their size]] through sheer teamwork, for starters. Their impact on readers is particularly strong, since the manga holds nothing back in the way of [[HotterAndSexier mature]] [[BloodierAndGorier content]].

*** In fact, most of the main protagonists are this trope to some degree.
*** Royd Clive from ''1st'' sports no such flashy "upgrades" as [[spoiler: BD Devices]], but still kicks [[spoiler: [[TheDreaded Dris]][[OneManArmy coll]]]]'s butt, multiple times, [[spoiler: even when the latter goes for the [[BiggerIsBetter Mir Orlen]]]].
*** Ash Faruk, Thomas Norland and Lisa Stanley from ''2'' are also good examples. This is true even after [[spoiler: Lisa gets the [[SuperPrototype final Raven]], considering this version doesn't rely on BD technology to have maximum combat performance]].
*** [[TheChick Lira Labra]] from ''2'' is a young lady barely out of her adolescence... and on multiple occasions, she [[SilkHidingSteel fights the Revolutionary Army]] along with Burg Transportation forces. In a Zenith, to be exact. Nobody bats an eyelid about it.
*** Kazuki Takemura and Ryogo Kusama from ''3'' are this without a doubt. Though they seem to be ordinary young adults at the beginning of their story, they somehow manages to keep up with all the military personnel they meet, all of whom are far more experienced in combat than they are. Oh, they take on [[spoiler: the [[SuperSoldiers Real and Imaginary Numbers]], and WIN]].
*** Darril Traubel and Elsa Eliane from ''4'' can be considered this. In the case of [[BrilliantButLazy Darril]], he is, as ''5'' shows, actually better than most of the [[spoiler: augmented humans]]. Of course, if this is any indication, he is at least on par with Walter Feng...

** In ''3'', there is one example of this. Depending on the path you take for the mission to save Alisa in Emma's path, you recruit Jose after defeating him in battle. However, on a different path in the mission, he just dies and you recruit someone else later.

** Sort of downplayed in 3 though, assuming you plan to do the alternate campaign in NG+, only Kazuki and Ryogo will actually benefit since the rest of your squad is campaign based.
