** The final bonus mission becomes exceptionally hilarious in this way, given that you [[spoiler: fight FOUR laser toting generation 6 fighters at once, all on your lonesome.]] Given that the Hellcat and Zero are both [[LethalJokeCharacter actually really good]], you can expect to see this happen more often than not

** And he can do all of that while flying an early 1940's USN Carrier fighter.


** He's so badass that the ending theme, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYDI_lkqyE0 Gravity/Like A Phoenix Rising]] is basically one [[BadassBoast big boast about how anyone who stands against him]] [[YouAreAlreadyDead is already dead before the fight even starts.]]

* MemeticBadass: Scarface One/Phoenix is the first protagonist in the series, yet one of the most undeniably awesome.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: '''''No one''''' bats an eye when Phoenix pilots UsefulNotes/WorldWarII-era fighters, or has his wingmen do so--although some of the usual "ThisCannotBe" remarks from enemy pilots become downright hilarious when one considers that they're saying this as an obsolete subsonic propeller-driven fighter zips up behind them and tears them apart.
* HilariousInHindsight: In ''VideoGame/AceCombat2'', Scarface One's official aircraft was the Su-35 Super Flanker. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhA6ZviGcUw introduction to that game]] depicts his aircraft coming to the aid of a wingman flying an F-22. Fast-forward to ''VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizonLegacy''--now Scarface One's official plane is the F-22, and since the game uses ''[[VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizon Assault Horizon]]''[='s=] cover art (which features an Su-37 Terminator), Phoenix is practically shooting down his old self!
* NarmCharm: While the actor's delivery isn't the problem, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasy'' fans may get a chuckle upon hearing, "Phoenix down!"

** The first ace squadron you fight, Lancer, has a thing about knights and chivalry and honor and the like, much like some of the bosses in ''Zero'' did - and then you realize their lead's personal callsign is "Pride". It's like they held a contest to let a fan design one of the boss fights, and Creator/GeorgeLucas won by doing his version of the Rot team.
