'''Jake''': Dude. You couldn't be more of a loser! You only care about yourself! You're not thinking about the land or anyone else. That kind of thing will only lead to your own destruction!
'''Von Bolt''': [[ShutUpKirk Whaaa haa haa haaa! Shut it, boy! Your inane hipster slang is an affront to my ears and a waste of my time. Slink home while you can still walk!]]

* TakeThatScrappy: Though Von Bolt's considered a ReplacementScrappy for Sturm, those who hate Jake will probably love him for this remark to Jake in the final battle:

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: Whether or not the tone shift in Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict was a good idea or not. Opponents say it turned its back on the entire series' lighthearted spirit in favor of a DarkerAndEdgier retool, while proponents say that the change in tone, namely the fact that death and the horrors of war get taken seriously now, means that the new characters are far more relatable and interesting than the shallow, vaguely creepy [[WarHasNeverBeenSoMuchFun implied sociopaths]] of the original series, and the proponents who have the American ''Days of Ruin'' specifically will often argue that, despite the DarkerAndEdgier tone, it's often a lot funnier than the original games.

** Non-B-copter aircraft and navies (and by extension, characters who use those mechanics) can get this, due to being perceived as way too expensive and way too easy to counter.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Dual Strike'' comes off as one to ''Black Hole Rising'', mostly due to the new characters being pretty scattershot and the gameplay a lot more broken.

** Caulder from ''Advance Wars: Days of Ruin'' appears to be just an amoral scientist at first, excited by the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt recent apocalypse]], since it finally lets him give his weapons some field testing to slake his curiosity. As the story continues, his "scientific curiosity" turns out to be genocidal sadism. He has invented a virus known as The Creeper, which makes flowers ''grow underneath your skin and burst through it, covering your body with roots, stems, and flowers'', all of which you can feel very painfully. The original virus wasn't good enough for him since it only infected the young, so he decided to upgrade it. Now it can kill everyone, even faster and more painfully than before. The photo they show you of one of the victims of this new strain of Creeper is horrid. It gets to the point where, when he tries to HannibalLecture the hero about how HumansAreBastards, the [[ShutUpHannibal hero throws it back in his face]], saying that it doesn't matter if he's right, becaue he's still a monster who needs to be destroyed. [[spoiler: Caulder even reveals that he literally isn't human, but a clone of an amoral scientist that fought back and killed his creator and the OTHER clones of said amoral scientist. "Do you know what it's like to watch yourself die? ...It is FASCINATING!"]]

** Crystal Calamity in ''Dual Strike'', Their Finest Hour in ''Battalion Wars 2'', and Sunrise from ''Days of Ruin''.

to:

** Crystal Calamity in ''Dual Strike'', Strike''. A DifficultySpike of the highest order. Your primary objective is to destroy the Black Obelisk, a large crystal that serves as the enemy HQ and heals enemy units within a radius of four tiles. Problem? It's protected by an [[DeflectorShields impenetrable energy shield]] projected by an orbiting satellite. To counter this, there are nine anti-satellite missile silos scattered about the battlefield. Using infantry, you must claim and fire ALL of these silos. If Black Hole claims a single one, you lose. The timing is tight enough that if the enemy gets a single movement bonus from their powers, you lose. Finally, if (IF) you succeed in toppling the satellite and exposing the obelisk, your forces are likely scattered and weak, requiring you to consolidate your forces and push back before Black Hole's forces steamroll you.
**
Their Finest Hour in ''Battalion Wars 2'', and Sunrise from ''Days of Ruin''.2''.



** Sunrise was the [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon last mission]] in ''Days of Ruin'', where you finally face [[FinalBoss Caulder]]. It's supposed to be frustrating and difficult... and the fact that Caulder is arguably more broken than Sturm makes it even more fun.
** Greyfield Strikes from "Days of Ruin" can be very frustrating, depending on which units get sabotaged. Having landers and gunboats unusable in the first few turns will make the mission much harder and longer than it actually is.

fun. Not that you're likely to think that way after Caulder exterminates you. It's impossible to beat him in a straight fight. Your only hope is to punch straight to the objective, clog up his production center, and hold him off until you can destroy his fortress. Take too long, and Caulder will tell you straight out that [[YouHaveNoChanceToSurviveMakeYourTime you should give up...]] and he's most likely right.
