* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: '''''No one''''' bats an eye when Phoenix pilots UsefulNotes/WorldWar2-era fighters, or has his wingmen do so--although some of the usual "ThisCannotBe" remarks from enemy pilots become downright hilarious when one considers that they're saying this as an obsolete subsonic propeller-driven fighter zips up behind them and tears them apart.
* HilariousInHindsight: In ''AceCombat2'', Scarface One's official aircraft was the Su-35 Super Flanker. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhA6ZviGcUw introduction to that game]] depicts his aircraft coming to the aid of a wingman flying an F-22. Fast-forward to ''Assault Horizon Legacy''--now Scarface One's official plane is the F-22, and since the game uses ''[[AceCombatAssaultHorizon Assault Horizon's]]'' cover art (which features an Su-37 Terminator), Phoenix is practically shooting down his old self!
