* XMeetsY: ''VideoGame/StarFox'' (or alternatively, ''VideoGame/PanzerDragoon'') meets anime in general. The [[NeedsMoreLove/VideoGames Needs More Love]] page here alternatively describes it as "a game akin to something like a SteamPunk-styled ''VideoGame/AceCombat''." All are apt descriptors.

* MightyGlacier[=/=]StoneWall: Hardi's Courage has average firepower (tied with Ciel's Avenir and Copain's Chevalier at B), the worst bank efficiency in the game (a C rating), and lacks traditional special weapons, but compensates by having the highest durability rating out of all the planes (S ranked) and can issue commands to his men to have them [[ZergRush flank the opponent]] at the cost of temporarily overheating the plane.

* AwesomeYetPractical: The Fireworks and Cross missiles.
** Arguably, all of the planes' special maneuvers count as well. The only drawback is that Heavy Fire and Vortex do quite a number on the temperature gauge, leading to the planes overheating if you're not careful.



* BiggerBad: Rival's not hanging around for nothing. [[spoiler:Someone hired Rival to steal a vital piece of the Eternal Engine]]. He was just using Ventre's conflict with the heroes to do the heavy work. [[BloodKnight And to fight Ciel for kicks.]]
** That being said, [[spoiler:Rival's employer and their intentions for the Eternal Engine are never revealed, so this remains an ambiguous situation.]]

* EvilLaugh: Rival's specialty, although it's more of a crazed snicker. Ventre belts out a glorious one on occasion (during a few cutscenes and should the player fail at stopping his plans, such as allowing Ventre to tow away the Merveilleux or failing to protect the cargo planes in Scene 2). He gets the "laughter turns into crying" subversion if [[spoiler:the player manages to capture him in Scene 5]].

* GlassCannon: Rival's weapon power (ranked S) and speed are very high, but his aircraft's defense is the lowest of all the characters (ranked '''D''').
** Also, Copain, arguably. His plane has average firepower (ranked B), but his Vortex and Pumpkin Bombs more than make up for it; unfortunately, his durability rating is a slightly subpar C.

* HeroesGoneFishing: Femme's third mission has her and Hardi attempting to enjoy a fine candlelight dinner (Ciel and Copain couldn't make it because this Scene respectively occurs after and before their own third chapter). Then Ventre shows up, planning to pilfer the Astronomical Telescope out of Rive's harbor.

** If the Expo ball on the Mervellieux is any indication, there ''are'' other females in Rive (Femme hails from a neighboring town, Neju). They're just not important.
