* AwesomeYetPractical: Tanks. Moreso then in previous entries, because now taking action with your Tank only costs ONE CP, no matter its size. As usual, the Tank wades through small arms fire and serves as a great shield. Note that the tank's AP pool depends on the chassis, with Light Tanks having the highest AP and Heavy Tanks the lowest.
** Despite being a PREQUEL, Armored Techs are even MORE useful here then they were in 2. When they end they turn, they crouch down and plant their shield on the ground in front of them, providing a handy curtain of frontal cover from incoming enemy fire. Possibly justified in that it seems the Nameless are used as Guinea Pigs for experimental military tech. It should be noted, however, that unless the player has them crouch (near the sandbags) beforehand, they will still take normal damage (headshots included) if they are attacked from the sides or behind.
** Snipers. Triple-shot snipers. You want them, you need them. It's the pinnacle of eliteness to blast the head of the Darcsen Knights from halfway across the map, and you HAVE to do this because there is effectively no other way to deal with them save for going Valkyria.



* BroadStrokes: For the most part Squad 422 (and their Empire counterpart, Calamity Raven) stays away from the spotlight of war, but the bits about Selvaria can be downright ludicrous, especially if you have played her VC1 DLC.

* ContinuityNod: At some point in the game, Welkin, Alicia, Avan, Cosette, Leon, Juliana, Brixham, and even Baldren and Audrey are required party members. On the other hand, you get to fight Jaeger (winnable) and Selvaria (unwinnable, [[ThatBattleDidntCount at least story-wise]]). (This list is not exhaustive.)

Taking place during the events of ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'', the game tells the story of Gallian Army Squad 442, otherwise known as "The Nameless". Made up of [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits criminals, deserters and military offenders]], the members of the Nameless [[UnPerson are stricken from official records]] and [[YouAreNumberSix thereon referred to by number only]]. They are then sent out on the most dangerous missions and dirty work for the Gallian Army, their existence and actions officially denied by the government.

* AwesomeYetImpractical: The Gunner class. Don't let their weapon's high firing rate (40 shots) fool you; unless they're doing interception fire or support fire in team attack, they shoot ''across a wide area'' instead of a single target, reducing their supposed damage output in the process. You can try firing from close range to increase the damage output, but even then, it is difficult.

Considering that that mission is ThatOneLevel, an uplifting music is much needed.
** Your superpowers are accompanied by fitting theme music, but Valkyria's the Valkyria one is especially hair-raising and adrenaline-pumping.



* WakeUpCallBoss: '''Echidna''', especially the first fight in Mellvere. If you're playing in normal, there is no easy way to capture the points guarded by Darcssen Knights while being under fire from that humongous tank. [[RageQuit PSP, meet floor.]]

* WeDoTheImpossible: Kurt Irving might as well write that in his business card. Throughout his career as the commander of The Nameless, he has repeatedly rescued the civilians forsaken by military, forced Echidna-backed Imperial force to retreat (3 times!), thwarted Calamity Raven's elite force countless times, nearly succeeded to assassinate Maximilian, prevented Randgriz from disappearing from map, saved the world from Valkyrian superweapon... Keep in mind that he does this without any significant help from the mainstream military or militia.
* WeHelpTheHelpless: Might as well be Squad 422's tag, considering how many times they have saved civilians throughout the game. Played straighter in the OVA with Kurt outright stated that the ones who suffer the most from the war are civilians, and it is their duty to protect them.
* WhatTheHellAreYou: The [[spoiler:Gallian]] unit reaction upon seeing Riela [[OneWingedAngel goes Valkyria]].

* TheWorfEffect: In the OVA, [[VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles Welkin and the gang]]. Apparently, when enemy leader outsmart Welkin, it's time for Kurt to save the day.

* YouKilledMyFather: [[spoiler: Imca, except it didn't stop at her father. Her entire village was destroyed by a Valkyria and led to her joining Squad 422 to seek revenge]]
