* BaseBreakingCharacter: PJ, mainly for [[spoiler:being a poor replacement for Pixy as Galm 2]]. Some bemoan his ineptitude as your {{wingman}} in these missions, whereas others find it refreshing that he's not an AcePilot like Cipher or Pixy, but an idealist up in the skies fighting for his beliefs in spite of his relative lack of skill and talent. As such, while many [[spoiler:were shaking their fists at Pixy for [[PlayerPunch gunning PJ down at the very end of the game]]]], there are several players who instead said good riddance. Due to the game's story encouraging AlternativeCharacterInterpretation from all angles, this response could've very well been intended by the developer.

** To elaborate; While the game has Ace Style system in place, it refuses to put any words into your character. [[spoiler:You can see Cipher as either [[IdealHero a honest knight through and through]], a [[ProfessionalKiller professional mercenary]] who became [[KnightInSourArmor genuinely tried of the morbid moralities of all sides at the end]], an upright soldier whose screw came loose after [[ItsPersonal Pixy shot him]] and/or [[AndThisIsFor PJ]], a military man who does his duty [[JustFollowingOrders no matter what]], a [[BloodKnight trigger-happy ace]] who is forced to confront reality, or a coward who is willing to kill defenseless personnel and shoot his friend for nothing but money, or anything in between.]] Then there's a question of why he disappears after Belkan War...

* EpilepticTrees: A recurrent piece of fan speculation concludes that Cipher could be none other than [[VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies Mobius 1]], despite the fact that Mobius 1 was considered a rookie pilot throughout the Usean Continental War with no reputation until the destruction of Stonehenge, making the idea highly unlikely outside of Cipher erasing his identity between games.
* EvenBetterSequel: To ''[=AC5=]'', itself an Even Better Sequel to ''04''. ''Zero'' retains most of the gameplay features and mechanical polish that made ''Shattered Skies'' and ''The Unsung War'' shine on top of a dark and gripping narrative [[{{Deconstruction}} unafraid to call question to]] [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation nearly anything and everything]]. Regardless of which installment fans ultimately deem to be ''Ace Combat''[='s=] crown jewel, these three sterling games, collectively known as [[RedBaron The Holy Trilogy]] have combined to [[ToughActToFollow overshadow nearly every other title in the series to date]], a testament to their quality.
