!!This video game provides examples of:

* BigBad: Zeraal, after the Rain of Death.
* BloodKnight: Kiyora.
* CelShading: Part of the initial wave of Cel-shaded video games.
* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Jack is stranded in Space, and as the narration finishes, he starts coughing due to lack of air.]]
* ElsewhereFic: This game is an ElsewhereFic in video game form, as the characters from the anime only make a few appearances.
* EscortMission: One of them for Minmei herself!
* FramingDevice: The narration is revealed to be [[spoiler:Jack making [[ThatWasTheLastEntry an audio log of the events of the game]] minutes before dying from lack of oxygen.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Skaarde]], who gives intel to Jack because [[spoiler:Jack saved Skaarde from Hiro]].
* HumongousMecha: Why you're here.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Given that most Macross games are [[NoExportForYou blocked from release in the US]], it is refreshing to finally have region-local game that includes control of this awesome ability.
* OriginalCharacter: Jack Archer.
* SavedByCanon: As an EasterEgg in the [[FirstPersonShooter FPS]] ''Robotech: Invasion'', Battlecry's counterpart/sequel, some hidden graffiti can be found reading "Jack Archer Lives!"
* TheResolutionWillNotBeIdentified: At the end, [[spoiler: Jack is left stranded near Saturn. It is not revealed if a rescue ship arrives in time to save his life]].
* TimeSkip: 75% of season 1 is skipped; Justified as Jack's fighter was PortalCut by the Hyperspace Fold and he was only along for the ride during the first and last 3 episodes. Enforced by Harmony Gold not being legally allowed to make derivative works based on ''Super Dimension Fortress Macross'' and that was as much as they could get away with.
* TransformingMecha: Also why you're here.
