Added DiffLines:

** In the ''Advance Wars'' tutorial mission "Copter Tactics", you're expected to capture the enemy HQ since their army is vastly superior to your own in terms of raw firepower. However, there's unique victory dialogue if you actually manage to destroy all of the enemy's forces.

** Pipes in ''Black Hole Rising'' and ''Dual Strike''. ''Air units'' can't travel over them (long-range units like Artillery and Rockets can fire over them, however). Particularly [[{{Egregious}} egregious]] in ''Dual Strike'' with the Piperunner unit - not only does it run along pipes, but in the battle animations involving the Piperunner, the pipe looks little more daunting than a steep humpback ridge.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Rachel and Koal have the worst tagging firepower penalty in the game.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Pre-Advance Wars games featured a much different combat system where attacking and defending units fired simultaneously, rather than the now much more familiar attacker-first set-up. This gave indirect units a much greater emphasis on the offensive, as their primary function of weakening opposing units prior to direct engagement became utterly necessary to prevent stalemates. One ''could'', conceivably, also do this with [[ZergRush sheer weight of numbers]], but such an advantage was highly unlikely due to the [[CompetitiveBalance balanced]] nature of most maps.
