* 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.

** 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.

* CompleteMonster: Driscoll of the first game is a ruthless commander who makes an enemy of TheHero Clevain by seemingly killing his fiancee in front of him and setting off a massive explosion to frame him for it. When he reappears later, Driscoll attempts to destroy civilian areas to recreate this disaster and reveals he is behind a scheme to make the current battle mechs, The Wanzers, obsolete- by forcing [=POWs=] to be forcibly mechanized and trapping their brains as digital computers for warfare. He has already done this to the hero's fiancee Karen with his own mech as well.

* WhosLaughingNow: It seems like the folks at SquareEnix are psychic, because in Front Mission 3, the Japanese Defense Forces can participate in conflicts alongside its fellow OCU members while maintaining a defense doctrine. [[http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jul/01/japan-pacifists-military-intervention-shinzo-abe?CMP=twt_gu Guess what they're planning to do with the real-life Japanese Self-Defense Forces]].
