* GameBreaker: In Warship Gunner 2, a battleship with the Massive Wave Gun, a good Auto Reload System (alpha, or above), and the Ammo Assembler or sufficient Ammunition Depots is a Game Breaker for this reason everything in the air or on the surface in your Massive Wave Gun's line of fire DIES. On Normal difficulty, this includes bosses. And it has the second longest range (by only a slim margin compared to the longest-ranged) in the game too!
** An Auto Reload System increases the rate of fire, so it can be used for targeting groups at closer range and not just "sniping." Finally, the Ammo Assembler system grants infinite ammo for all of the ship's weapons, but comes later (destroy 999 superweapons) than Ammunition Depots which provide 20% max ammo increase for all weapons on the ship; without them the Massive Wave Gun has 5 shots before it needs reloading. Its weaknesses are all in design elements such as weight and size (the latter making the battleship superior to the battlecarrier, the only other compatible ship) but are practically marginal or already compensated for in a good battleship design.
** Try the frigate from hell. It can hold 10 system slots (ammo assembler plus 9 more systems of your choice), has enough room to house ASROC, Anti-Air and High Explosive Missiles, as well as pulse lasers, AGS cannons, and a [[WaveMotionGun magnetic pulse gun]]. It has as much firepower as a battleship but comes with higher speed and maneuverability, making catching up to defense targets no problem. True, the Magnetic Pulse Gun isn't as strong as the massive wave gun, but hey, when you can spam those shots to full effect, it doesn't really matter in the long run.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: In Naval Ops 2: Warship Gunner, you get special missions after beating the game once. In each one, everyone, except, perhaps, the captain, acts like they've just taken a [[MushroomSamba hit of something]]. Let's see, [[BadassGrandpa Tsukuba]] is now openly [[HoYay going after]] [[EvenTheGuysWantHim the captain]], and [[DirtyOldMan is quite obvious about it]]. He also calls your BridgeBunny [[MsFanservice Ms. Eye Candy]]. Werner, a fellow XO, is also [[HoYay going after]] [[OnlySaneMan the captain]], and he's revealed to have taken a liking to predicting the future. With every kind of method known to man, including talking to his dearly departed Aunt Betty. Braun, a female scientist, also in the race for the captain's attention, was revealed to be an 80s movie buff and apparently weighs a lot more than she looks. Oh, and said BridgeBunny? She's a ManipulativeBitch now. And of course, you get to fight a dried squid. KOEI has a pretty weird sense of humor...

** This all discounts the [[BreakingTheFourthWall rest of it all]]. A showdown with Drillships sees all ''three'' of them reappearing. The Amaterasu ("Forgetable Middle Brother") even calls the crew out:

* GoddamnedBats: The PT boats, tiny little vessels that serve no purpose aside from swarming all over the place and bumping into you when you're trying to deal with other, larger ships. Much later on in the game they start firing lasers and homing missiles, mount shields, and break weapon locks, effectively upgrading them to DemonicSpiders. Even better, they sometimes have high-level jamming and EM shielding, meaning you can't use homing weapons and lasers on them.
* NightmareFuel: [[spoiler: Ragnarök's orbs of destruction. Those things are faster than 64.6 knots and, when they're fired, they emit a very weird sound and start to pursue you. The only way to escape is if you have thrusters or enigmatechs.]]
** The Hell Atsche might count too. [[NightmareRetardant Or you could just travel slow speed reverse.]]

* ShipToShipCombat: Well, it's about warships destroying each other, but the Escort Special Mission it's a special case of this trope.
* TearJerker: [[spoiler: If you let Tsukuba perform the HeroicSacrifice in the third mission, you have to fight him later in the game. It's pretty sad to sink his ship, since he would refuse to abandon his ship.]]

** The sequel replaces battleships with frigates as the go-to ship for general purpose use. [[LightningBruiser They can hold loads on par with that of early-to-mid-level battleships, has almost no limits to what weapons can be equipped, can carry ten auxilary equipments, and can go at speeds beyond the 64.6 knots if built and equipped right.]]

* ScrappyMechanic: In the first game, you have to physically retreat from the map after completing the mission, possibly while under fire from an entire fleet. Every subsequent game allowed you to just choose a "Return" option from the menu. Also, point defense weapons did not fire automatically; you have to engage intercept mode, which prevents you from using offensive weapons.
