* Courtesy of ''AceCombat Zero'', and some troper further down the page: Stage Four tacks on the MPBM, Stage Five the TLS, and Stage Six gives the ECM pod so that only melee attacks or an accurate frontal shot at the newly-added air intake will bring the Sentry down... OhCrap.

* Engineer: A self-taught GadgeteerGenius, compared to the Engineer's 11 PHDs. She'll not quite have the same social skills, however, but she'll still be about as nice (relatively) as Engie.

* Medic: Whereas the Medic is a DitzyGenius and a MadDoctor, [[WomenAreWiser his counterpart will be completely intentional in what she does.]] She will not, however, be any less of a {{Sadist}} and will otherwise hit most of the same FauxAffablyEvil markers the Medic uses. Her skillset will be more closely related to that of a TortureTechnician.

* Pyro: A new character, who does not wear a mask, granted, but is either {{Bishonen}} or {{Bifauxnen}} and talks in a very mellow, not-easily-identified-as-a-certain-gender voice. While Pyro is TheUnintelligible and [[ObliviouslyEvil doesn't seem to know they're hurting people]], the counterpart Pyro would be a DeadpanSnarker {{Sadist}}. Plus, this still doesn't answer the question of whether [[TrollingCreator Valve]] made a SpearCounterpart or a DistaffCounterpart to the [[AmbiguousGender Pyro.]]

* Sniper: A GenkiGirl who doesn't care as much about being a ConsumateProfessional as much as [[BloodKnight having fun doing her job.]] The two would have an ArtistVersusTechnician relationship and she'd pride herself on her ImprobableAimingSkills (NotSoDifferent from certain players). Of course, she gets serious sometimes, [[LetsGetDangerous and things have a tendency to go badly when she does,]] and might indulge in the occasional FreudianThreat.

Female versions of the team have been a part of the fandom for a while now, and it'd be nice to see something that big become a piece of AscendedFanon. Granted, it's not likely, since it'd involve creating nine more character models from scratch, but hey, this is WMG.

* Spy: Probably another [[EverythingsSexierInFrench French]] character, only playing more to the FemmeFatale end of things compared to Spy's [[TheCasanova Casanova]] traits. While Spy is occasionally NotSoAboveItAll, the new Spy will be TheStoic... [[DoubleSubversion mostly to annoy her male counterpart with her passing similarity to]] [[TheRival the Sniper.]]

!!A slew of DistaffCounterparts
All of whom are {{Foil}}s to the current canon characters, and might include some of the current canon characters. Such as:
* Scout: [[BeleaguredAssistant Miss Pauling.]] Running around doing jobs for the administrator all day functions as a sort of CharlesAtlasSuperpower, similar to how Scout originally did it. Furthermore, in "Expiration Date", she's shown using shotguns and pistols in her line of work, similar to the Scout's default weaponry (she's only missing the bat). While Scout's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold CasanovaWannabe, Pauling closer fits the bill of BitchInSheepsClothing (of course, still a very likable and Adorkable one) who doesn't seem to be quite as interested in romance.
* Soldier: Either Zhanna or an as-of-yet unknown character. She and Soldier are already a BattleCouple in the comics, and have a lot in common, but one of Soldier's defining traits is being a walking Eagleland stereotype and priding himself in his patriotism... while Zhanna is a HuskyRusky. Bonus points if they end up on opposite teams (similar to Soldier and Demo in the "War!" update.)
* Pyro: A new character, who does not wear a mask, granted, but is either {{Bishonen}} or {{Bifauxnen}} and talks in a very mellow, not-easily-identified-as-a-certain-gender voice. While Pyro is TheUnintelligable and [[ObliviouslyEvil doesn't seem to know they're hurting people]], the counterpart Pyro would be a DeadpanSnarker {{Sadist}}.

* Demoman: An Irish woman with a penchant for explosions and who needs hearing aids or is missing the other eye (and probably filling another TokenMinority role). Demo [[DrunkenMaster works best with 150-proof blood]], while the newcomer would be sober as a heart attack (or at least, on-field... once off-duty, [[INeedAFreakingDrink all bets are off]].)
* Heavy: If Zhanna isn't Soldier's counterpart, she's Heavy's. If not her, the newcomer will be a BigEater GeniusBruiser, but more of a BigFun sort of character compared to Heavy's occasional GentleGiant tendencies, and will seem to have a more platonic view of [[ICallItVera Sasha]] than [[CargoShip Heavy does.]]

** Alteratively, the iconic Diamond Sword will be released under the name "Diamond Cutter" and described as "Forged from gemstones found deep within the heart of the earth... Or perhaps just creative-spawned. We're not too sure."

* An invisiwatch that starts with an empty meter that has to be filled with kills, much like the buff banner (backstabs would add significantly more meter than other kills and a successful taunt kill would fill it completely). Once you cloak with this watch, you'll still be able to attack and sap while invisible.
