* ScrappyWeapon: The Raptor MG, which has appeared in two games, stands out as being a fairly poor beginner-tier weapon that suffers from bad accuracy and low damage output.

** I thought it was a reference to Gravity's Rainbow, the parabola a rocket makes just before it blows your torso out, from Pynchon.

** In the story campaign, there's no multiplayer co-op (''Gun Hazard'' does), there are power-ups found everywhere or dropped by enemies(''Gun Hazard'' does this more realistically, like ammo crates in a supply depot and never dropped by enemies), ally units can't be killed (''Gun Hazard'' does), and there's no real depth to the combat (''Gun Hazard'' does). Online multiplayer is heavily unbalanced in many ways, like in the progression system - experienced players have access to top-tier parts that flat-out overpower gear that newbies start with. Throw in how overpowered some weapons are, like Bazookas, and ''Evolved'' is a far cry from the well-balanced ''Online''.

* AntiClimaxBoss: The FinalBoss of each route in the first game:
** The O.C.U. scenario has [[spoiler: Driscoll - in his wanzer Mir Orlen]]. He has no ranged attacks, and is immobile. His second form is [[spoiler: exactly the same as the other two times you beat his ass]], while you're controlling a unit of virtual demigods at this point. It wasn´t so bad in the original [=SNES=] version, in which he can attack up to a range of 4 squares and up to [[ExtraTurn 3 times in a turn]].
** In the U.C.S. scenario, the central antagonist is a NonActionGuy, so you have to fight [[spoiler:[[TheDragon Gail]] and two EliteMooks in "Type 11DS Ravens" wanzers.]] This is more challenging than the OCU route, but it's still easy due to only having three enemies (against you party of 6+) who lack long-range attacks.

* AntiClimaxBoss: [[spoiler: Driscoll]] at the very end of ''1st''. His Mir Orlen has no ranged attacks, and is immobile. His second stage is [[spoiler: exactly the same as the other two times you beat his ass]], while you're controlling a unit of virtual demigods at this point. In the original ''Front Mission'' version, the Mir Orlen can attack up to a range of 4 squares and up to 3 times in a turn. However, since it doesn't move...

** Stacking ROFUP1 in 3. Very, very few enemies in the game can withstand it if it decided to chain.

* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: Sort of. You'll be saying "Stop Helping Me!" to Luven al-Hadi if you spend too much time around him in ''Gun Hazard''. It's also an actual command to order your computer-controlled partner to retreat.
** Thing is, he got to stay around you for a while because you'll be needing him for a certain mission, so he needs the EXP! [[SarcasmMode Good Luck!]]
** Can be invoked in ''5'' with its line of sight system. If you're standing directly between an enemy and an aggressive ally, get ready for some serious pain.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Emil in ''Gun Hazard'' is a good example of this....

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Emil in ''Gun Hazard'' is a good example of this....this: People who have played the game for the first time will most likely assume that character is a girl on their first meeting... then they read a bit into the detailed canon and find out that ''Emil is actually a boy''.

** As far as the story of ''Evolved'' goes, it's a complete disgrace. Aside from outsourcing the game development, art design, and music, Square Enix also "outsourced" the storytelling to Motomu Toriyama. Yes, [[TheScrappy Motomu]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantsyXIII Toriyama]]. Instead of an intricate, mature tale about mankind versus itself, ''Evolved'' ironically degenerated into a ClicheStorm as it rehashed every major mecha cliche in existence. As Front Mission was penned by a team of some of Japan's best writers (most being scriptwriters or novelists), it's tragic to see a product with those words churn out something incredibly bad.
