* AdaptationDistillation: Adapts and combines aspects of both ''Crisis Core'' and ''Before Crisis'', first and foremost being that rather than Genesis make his own army to fight Shinra, he allies with AVALANCHE.

* AwesomeByAnalysis: Aerith's scores in mission simulators are among the top of the company, because being cooped up with the tower with no authorization for assignments, she's spent months doing them daily and is able to predict the timing patterns of the AI.

Added DiffLines:

* UnskilledButStrong: Aerith's raw talent is mentioned to be among the top SOLDIER members, and she has the potential to become one of their best. However, all her knowledge of combat is book knowledge and practice against AI simulations, she has no practical experience and it starts to show once she gets sent into the field.

* SheFu: Aerith's fighting style with her staff relies on a lot of flips, twirls and {{Spin Attack}}s. She fights this way due to the advantages of a more acrobatic fighting style coming hand-in-hand with using a staff, as opposed to fighting with a sword and a more straightforward method.

Genesis offers the alternative idea that she fights that way to show off and get attention.
* ShockAndAwe: [[spoiler:Aerith's second LimitBreak, Thor's Hammer.]]


* NotSoHarmlessVillain: President Shinra thinks AVALANCHE is a nuisance and has little interest in them since he doubts they'll be able to back up their threats. [[spoiler:Then they invade Midgar and bomb Shinra Headquarters, as turning Shinra's trap to capture Genesis back on them when Genesis breaks free and attacks Lazard.]]

* CrypticConversation: [[spoiler:Genesis dangles choice bits of information in front of everyone present when he's captured and interrogated, but says little outright. Justified as he's been interrogated at gunpoint, and knows if he says the wrong thing that Sephiroth, Angeal and Aerith aren't supposed to hear, like the Jenova Project, it could get him killed.]]
