* GenreSavvy: Sami shows Genre Savviness if you team her up with Eagle for the final mission of ''Advance Wars: Dual Strike''.
--> '''Eagle''': "I want you to promise me something, Sami. Promise that if we both return from this battle alive..."
--> '''Sami''': "Oh no you don't! Stop it right there! If two people make a promise like that, one of them is going to end up dead! [[{{Retirony}} You may as well tell me that you're two days away from retirement]]! Save the promises for later, OK? We'll talk when we get back in one piece."

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: ''Days of Ruin'' explains why your units from one campaign mission don't carry over to the next (factories are automated, and the units produced by them automatically power down when they leave the area).

** Could be argued ''Black Hole Rising'' did it as well; the graphic style became less cartoony.

** Could be argued ''Black Hole Rising'' did it as well; the graphic style became less cartoony. And if that doesn't sell the point, ''Dual Strike'' definitely plays this trope straight: the plot is much darker (although nowhere near Days of Ruin's), the music is less whimsical (even the pre-existing themes get remastered), and the animations are much more mature than even Black Hole Rising.

* LostForever: the Excellence Medal in ''Game Boy Wars 3'' requires you to clear all 45 maps in 54 battles.



* OnlyFatalToAdults: This is inverted with the early version of Creeping Derangea, which can only infect people under the age of 20. Completely averted with the later version, which works faster and can infect anyone regardless of age.

* PuttinOnTheReich: The uniforms of the Black Hole COs draw heavily from Nazi Germany. The Black Hole symbol even resembles a swastika!

''Advance Wars: Days of Ruin'' is a completely new continuity, set in a DarkerAndEdgier AfterTheEnd world which actually works. It manages to have a level of character and plot development and story depth easily rivaling any ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' or ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' game, though some elements differ significantly between regions. With the new story comes a massive overhaul of the [=CO=] system as well as the units themselves.
