Added DiffLines:

* TheMagicGoesAway: This is the only game to have magicians who aren't Valkyria.


* SteamPunk: Set in Midgard's Industrial Revolution period when people were just figuring out automobiles. It's just that they're using GreenRocks instead of coal as a fuel source. To whit, the main combat vehicles are ostentatious MiniMecha instead of nice, sensible tanks. Society is also on the border of the HeroicFantasy of a traditional JRPG and the WeirdHistoricalWar of the early-modern ''Valkyria Chronicles'' proper, with wizards and swordsmen fighting alongside the aforementioned {{Walking Tank}}s.

* CognizantLimbs: Walkers can have their legs targeted, similar to a tank's treads in the main games. However, an immobilized tank becomes a heavily-armed stumbling block, and a kneecapped mech tips over like ED-209 on a staircase

Added DiffLines:

* GenreShift:
** Gameplay-wise, ''Revolution'' is an action RPG compared to the main series being TurnBasedStrategy.
** Storywise, ''Revolution'' is more overtly fantastic than the main series' LowFantasy, with things like soldiers casting spells with staffs, MagicMusic, and [[spoiler:a ring that contains the spirit of a Valkyria and causes any woman who wears it to turn into a facsimile of her]].


* AlternateHistory: In-universe. The game takes place in an alternate timeline of the VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles series where Europa underwent an Industrial Revolution and developed into a much more fantastical setting opposed to the more World War II inspired setting of the original games.

*ArtificialStupidity: Your AI team members can be almost useless at times, refusing to get out of the way of telegraphed boss attacks or use their healing magic when their HP gets low.



*FragileSpeedster: Scouts specialize in moving quickly and dazzling single targets with multiple, weak, quick attacks. However they tend to have lower defenses and health than Shocktroopers and Shields.
*ForegoneConclusion: The game's opening cutscene tells you that the main characters were tried as traitors and executed for their crimes. The plot is merely a retelling of how it came to that and what their true motivations were.
*HeroicSeductress: Violette gathers information from high class military men and politicians with her feminine wiles as "Margaretha".



*MightyGlacier: Shocktroopers and Shield units fall into this. Shocktroopers are your heavy hitters who wield giant two handed weapons which can cleave through multiple enemy troops in a single swing. Shield units are your tanks which specialize in soaking up damage and protecting their squishier allies. However their attacks and movement are slower than Scouts and Sappers.



*RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Princess Ophelia is the crown royalty of Jutland and she takes place in front line operations.



* TrueCompanions: The Five Grand Criminals have been together since childhood at the same orphanage. [[ForegoneConclusion They all have been found guilty and sentenced to death on the same day.]]

*WalkingTank: The tanks in this game are mostly bipedal and run around on legs opposed to the treaded tanks like the Edelweiss in the original game.

Added DiffLines:

*StoryToGameplayRatio: The minutes spent in cutscenes outnumber the minutes spent in gameplay by a ton, especially in the early game. Be prepared to spend at least half an hour listening to people talk about the horror and politics of war before you finally get to partake in either.


''Valkyria Revolution'', [[MarketBasedTitle known in the Japanese market as Valkyria: Azure Revolution]], is a spinoff game from the main VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles series. It was released on the Playstation 4 and the Vita[[note]]Outside Japan, it's only released in PSN stores as a digital release.[[/note]] in all territories with the Xbox One version being released in all territories except for Japan.

Europa has experienced an Industrial Revolution-like event that resulted in the great use of ragnite. One of the countries that has benefited from this is the Ruzhien Empire, which has occupied a number of countries including Jutland under the rule of Emperor Claudius Powlovich Kiev and the [[EliteFour the Four Commanders]]. Not wanting to remaining under Ruzhien control while suffering from sanctions under an economic blockade known as the BRFH Blockade, Jutland has launch a war of independence to [[OccupiersOutOfOurCountry get rid of Ruzhien occupation.]] One of those involved is Amleth Grønkjær, a Jutlander military officer who serves in the [[ElitesAreMoreGlamorous Jutlander Army's Anti-Valkyria Squad known as Vanargand]], which is in charge of spearheading the war effort from the military side. In response, the Ruzhien Army has acquired the services of a mythical Valkyrie named Brunhilde.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: The game's loading screen takes up quite awhile especially if a cutscene only lasts for a minute or two then the "Now Loading" screen appears.
