Video Game: Air Combat
The first game in the Ace Combat series. Released as an arcade game during 1992, and in Playstation during 1995. You fly as the leader of an elite mercenary unit out to stop a terrorist threat.

Tropes found in the game

  • Ace Custom: In a sense - every plane you use has a white-with-purple-flames paint scheme. When you're looking over planes to purchase in the hangar, they have standard paint schemes, but then are replaced with the above scheme if you buy them.
  • Captain Obvious: Especially grating when compared to other games in the series, but at least your wingman was the only annoying one yammering you.
  • Critical Annoyance: Did your plane get struck by a pebble? Enjoy hearing "Alert, body damage! Alert, body damage! Alert, body damage! Alert, body damage! Alert, body damage! Alert, body damage! Alert, body damage! Alert, body damage! Alert, body damage! Alert, body damage! Alert, body damage! Alert, body damage!" every time your plane is attacked.
  • Final Death: If you crash a plane or get shot down, you lose that plane for good and, with very few exceptions, cannot buy another one. If you crash all the planes, then it's game over.
  • N.G.O. Superpower: The enemy is supposedly a terrorist group, though the country you're fighting for is apparently a small one.
  • The Revolution Will Not Be Vilified: Averted. You're fighting for the government.
  • Title Drop: One of the songs on the OST is titled "Ace Combat".
