* ArmorIsUseless: In an early cutscene an imperial is shot by an ordinary rifle straight through his armor. ** Averted in gameplay, the more armored the class the more hits they can take. Tanks cannot be damaged by small arms unless hit in the heat sink. Selvaria makes do through sheer Valkyria toughness. [[spoiler:Isara was likely shot for being the only person without protection.]]

* DungeonBypass: The best (sometimes only) way to get A ranks on missions. Easy to do in NewGamePlus when your units are way overpowered, but even before then, a scout with the right Orders placed on them can often just walk past the enemy and capture their base. Special mention also goes to the final encounter with Selvaria, where [[spoiler:you're supposed to fight your way through a huge fortress and an entire army to reach her and fight her to the death... or, if you've leveled your snipers enough, you can just have Marina shoot her in the head from the starting position, since Marina's Ultimate Accuracy special prevents Selvaria from dodging.]]

* LogicalWeakness: While the armor plating on Jaeger's tank offers more protection, the weight slows it considerably. Obscuring the radiator protects it from harm but makes is a lot easier to overheat, requiring support camps to deal with it.
