* 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.

Something not many people knows, [=EasyGameStation=] (Yes, [[{{Recettear}} THAT]] [=EasyGameStation=]) once made a game called "Gunner's Heart" that acts as a slightly downgraded PC port of the game, with more rudimentary cutscenes, but with the plot and characters completely unaltered from the [=PS2=] original.

* VillainExitStageLeft: Played straight [[spoiler:if you take too long defeating Vainqueur in Scene 5]]. If not, this is subverted, as [[spoiler:the heroes spot Ventre's overcrowded battleship attempting to escape and pursue it... which then leads to a double subversion where Ciel says that Ventre should have learned his lesson by now and lets Ventre off the hook. Ventre agrees that it's time for him to take a vacation after his final defeat.]]

Each character is armed with a pair of machine guns [[AbnormalAmmo (that shoot...money??)]] and also have his or her own aircraft, special ability, attributes, and even ''difficulty'' (Ciel is Normal Mode, Copain is Difficult/Hard Mode, and Femme is Easy Mode). Selecting a Gunner takes you through his/her side of the story, often teaming up with all three characters is some stages in races to see who gets the most cash from taking down everything from small ships to big hulking mecha and battleships. Cue many, many explosions. And it's entirely done in anime-style.

* ChargedAttack: The Lock-On feature for all of the optional weapons works this way, allowing the player to send off more of their ammo at once for more spectacular results at the cost of filling up the heat meter at a brisker pace. Special mention goes to the Cross, which goes from 1-3 smaller cross missiles fired simultaneously to a huge honking singular missile with ''a lot'' more boom for the buck at Max Lock.



* {{Overheating}}: Using optional weapons and special maneuvers causes the heat meter (your plane's temperature gauge) to rise. Use too many at once without spacing between your actions and your aircraft will overheat, preventing you from firing any weapons besides your main guns, using special maneuvers, or boosting as you wait to cool down.
