to:

->''On a distal island,far distant island, far away from civilization, the protectors of the peace take to the skies...''

Added DiffLines:

* TheAce: More than ''anyone else on the team'': while the rest of Wardog, with the exception of Bartlett [[spoiler: and Snow]], start as rookie pilots, Grimm starts as a pilot who hasn't finished ''flight school''. He ends up stealing a jet ''during'' an enemy attack on his home base, gets in the air, and successfully shoots down at least one enemy plane in the ensuing chaos.
--> '''Grimm''': I'm taking off.\\
'''Chopper''': The ''hell'' you are! You haven't even finished flight school yet!

Added DiffLines:

* TechnicalPacifist: ''Everyone'' on the squadron absolutely hates the war and the people that they hurt and kill. They express regret rather than anger when their enemies attack, and feel bad for both sides in the war. They never seek to punish those that they fight either, [[spoiler: with the exception of the enemies that shoot down and kill Chopper]].


Added DiffLines:

* TheAce: Blaze never puts a foot wrong even if you give belligerent answers to questions (like saying no when Bartlett asks if you can hear him). He's also a complete rookie who nonetheless manages to get more kills in his ''first mission'' than the rest of the squadron combined. Wardog squadron look to him as an example of excellence, and ''they're'' the BadassCrew.


* TheHero: Being the PlayerCharacter.

to:

* TheHero: Being the PlayerCharacter.In a squadron of heroes, they all look to him for leadership.



* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: Almost averted. Blaze is shown in a couple of photographs- in one, his face is covered by another person, and in the other there are several unknown characters with no indication which (if any) of them is him. Some later cutscenes show the entire squadron, though if Blaze's head is even in the frame the view is too far away to actually see what he looks like. And in one of the earliest cutscenes, multiple pilots are seen talking, but the view switches to a front shot of Bartlett ''just'' before it can pan over to show one specific pilot's face. During the missions, the pilot's faces are obscured by their oxygen masks and helmet visors as well, so forget trying to catch a glimpse of him there either.

** There is only [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/acecombat/images/2/2f/Gm302.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20110207200825 one]] picture that shows his full body, but thanks to Chopper being a showoff and flexing his arm in ''just'' the wrong position, Blaize's face is obscured. The only thing that can be told for sure about Blaze from the picture is that he's male and that he's about Chopper's height with short cropped dark hair, and white skin.

* [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Only Known by His Callsign]]: Like so many player characters in the series who aren't [[VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizon William Bishop]], Blaze doesn't have a given name or a surname.

to:

* TheCaptain: Takes this role and rank after the first two missions.missions. The rank comes later (starts as a 2nd Lieutenant, promoted to 1st Lieutenant for the fifth mission, and then eventually to Captain, along with the rest of the squadron).


* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Common Wild Mass Guesses by the fandom include that members of Wardog Squadron actually are possessed by Razgriz at various points (particularly after [[spoiler:Chopper's death]], when they go absolutely ''berserk'' on the Yuke planes still left in the sky), or that Blaze ''is'' Razgriz.

Added DiffLines:

The mythological demon mentioned in ''[[ShowWithinAShow A Blue Dove for the Princess]]''. Speculation abounds whether or not he is actually present in some form in the game. The Wardog Squadron's members are branded "The Demons of Razgriz" after they sink the Hrimfaxi. Later in the game [[spoiler: after they get shot down fleeing from Sand Island, they take Razgriz' name for themselves]].

* CallingYourAttacks: Whenever he initiates Electronic Counter-Counter Measures to overcome enemy jamming, he shouts out ''"ECCM! Restore communication link!"'' It's not hard to imagine him hammily pressing a BigRedButton up in the [=AWACs=] plane.

Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: He's much louder and more bombastic in his duties than other AWACS of the series, like ''04''[='=]s Sky Eye or Eagle Eye of ''Zero'', who go for more DangerDeadpan with only short bursts of emotion.

Added DiffLines:

* ButNowIMustGo: After Razgriz returns as a hero, it tends to disappear shortly after.


* TheHunterBecomesTheHunted: After spending much of the first half of the game pursued by mysterious enemies, ambushed by a nigh-invincible nuclear submarine and AWACS-disrupting fighter squadrons, and betrayed by their own government, Wardog squadron manages to turn the tables and begin taking apart their tormentors after they are reborn as the Razgriz.
