* FromNobodyToNightmare: Played straight with Daven, who was just a basic mechanic before and partly during[[ArmoredCoreForAnswer Armored Core For Answer]]. He proceeded to become the third-command in ORCA, and a high-ranked pilot.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Ghost.
** Although often averted by Ghost as well, normally due to him considering his defeated enemies (in some cases) to be [[WorthyOpponent Worthy Opponents]] or because they still have a part to play in his massive gambit.



*** YMMV on this trope's applicability to Ghost; he borders on Complete Monster.


* AntiHero: Ghost.
** Specifically, Type III at the start, moving onto Type IV and Type V pretty quickly.
** Alternately, he could be considered a VillainProtagonist.

* {{Badass}}: Every pilot, as it takes great skill for even lower-ranks.
** Ghost seems to deliberately [[InvokedTrope invoke this trope]] on every possible occasion with his (occasionally ridiculous) showmanship.

** Ghost can variously be interpreted as either a darker [[CodeGeass Lelouch]] expy or a more powerful [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]] expy. As it turns out, the author designed him as both.

* AwesomeButPractical: Almost all the character's NEXTs and weapons.


* BadassAbnormal: Demons, Angels and anyone augmented.


* DadTheVeteran: Zach, V'Rugh, Berlioz, Joshua, Jean Pierre the Fifth, Sahdana, Takafumi, Nikola. [[As of confirmed living as of the Sahara, Zach is the only one alive.]]

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Everyone. Absolutely everyone.
** But Ghost most of all. Hell, even the authors don't know whether he's good or evil yet. He seems to express a lot of both, though.



* AngstWhatAngst: Happens occasionally, especially when something that should be traumatic happens to Ghost and he barely flinches.
** Possibly justified by the fact that he's A) a cold-blooded, ruthless killer who's watched everyone he's ever known die and B) he's possibly insane.



* {{Anvilicious}}



** Subverted - They're all fighting each other most of the time.
*** Although after further examination, Ghost is the one who basically wiped the Thermidor family off the face of the Earth. Maybe he's just the family's resident internal grim reaper.

* BetaCouple: Daven and Wynne had problems, but got over them fairly well. The Beta Couple to these two is Zach and Menno, though Menno is dead.
** Although that said, nobody in this fic seems to stay dead for long.
*** [[spoiler: Very much so. Miranda Smith (aka Menno Ruh) has been confirmed to be alive. Same with Fiona Jarnefeldt.]]

* BreatherBoss: Some characters are the big enemy to take down, but are not overly difficult.
* BrokenAce: Ghost is the literal definition of this trope. He's a master NEXT pilot, a brilliant {{Chessmaster}}, a textbook MagnificentBastard, and has astounding physical abilities, capable of taking on armies with his bare hands. He's also a [[NietzcheWannabee nihilistic]] [[CompleteMonster monster]], a SelfMadeOrphan with a [[IDidWhatIHadToDo ruthless streak the size of a small continent]], willing to commit [[OmnicidalManiac omnicide]] to bring peace to the world. And that's just the beginning.

* ChaoticGood: Ghost in the beginning. [[spoiler:He then goes down to NeutralEvil at best.]]
* ChaoticNeutral: Razer



* CompleteMonster: Sebastian, with his experiments.
** Ghost seems to be becoming this, at least in the eyes of some characters.
** Not to mention Stein.



* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Too many to list.
** There will be a second page for this in due time.



** Not to mention Ghost; he constantly wears black and dark grey clothing, all of his mechs are painted black and blood-red, he has black hair and (under the influence of his Demon abilities) red eyes - hell, even his ''name'' screams this... but he's the hero.

* DesignatedHero
* DespairEventHorizon: Holly when Ghost seemed to die. He got better.
** Ghost on multiple occasions. Each time, he dips deeper into insanity...



* EngagingChevrons: If you don't like the relatively short launch sequences.



* EvilIsCool: Ghost.
