* NoHeroDiscount: A variation. Instead of buying better equipment for Squad 7, you pay the R&D fees to develop better equipment, which is then issued to them for no further charge. Let's not ask why one militia squad seems to be directing the entire R&D effort of the nation of Gallia.

** Characters' Potentials activate on a situational or random basis. The game does not tell you how strong the effect is, or what the random chance is, leaving the player in the dark about how much effort they should put in to triggering or avoiding the effects.

* SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains: Selvaria's outfit doesn't show a huge amount of skin (mostly on her back), but it's sexualised in a way that Alicia's isn't -- Alicia could be wearing any amount of underwear beneath her jacket, Selvaria is clearly wearing none beneath hers.

* BoringButPractical: Sure it's cool to make use of potentials and lucky shots and status effects for victory, but chances are you'll have a much quicker victory if you just park more mobile units like scouts and shocktroopers close to an enemy and point blank headshot them for a guaranteed kill. (And if they're in cover, a simple grenade or two will flush them out.) This becomes less of an issue over time as weapon accuracy improves and you can attack from further away (even being able to more reliably use snipers for their intended purpose), but just using multiple commands on scouts and shocktroopers alone remains a pretty viable path to winning and even top ranks, especially if you can form team attacks to counteract weak attack power.

** Smoke shells prevent your troops from being hit by interception fire. They are required for the Marberry Shore mission (where they are first available) and are useful on several other occasions.

* EarlyGameHell: Some of the early missions can be rather challenging, especially if you aren't used to strategy games. One year after the release of the [=PS4=] version, only about 28% of players had achieved the first storyline Trophy, which is awarded after chapter 8 of 18.

Along with a wide and eclectic cast of other civilians, they are organised into Militia Squad 7 and put on the front lines to defend their home against the Imperial offensive. Together they must face not only the advance of the Imperial army- including the dreaded "[[RedBaron War Witch]]" known as Selvaria Bles- but their own internal disputes as those in the Gallian military seek to manipulate or use Squad 7 for their own ends.

When the Imperial Alliance launches a surprise attack against Gallia, the policy of Universal Conscription is activated and every able-bodied man and woman is drafted into military service. Three of these new recruits are Welkin Gunther, an animal sociologist and son of a famous general; Isara, Welkin's Darcsen foster sister; and Alicia Melchiott, a young girl who dreams of becoming a baker.
