Funny / Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation

Go To

  • Near the beginning of the game, Melissa is listening in on a radio broadcast from the Estovakian propaganda machine. When the reporter tries to ask a young girl what do they think of it, the girl turns out to be Matilda, and she tells him ‘Go dance with the angels, mister’, before punching him.
  • In the cutscene that follows, Voychek had just arrived at the train station in Gracemeria, and seconds after taking a seat, a kid sneaks up behind him, and steals his luggage. His deadpan reaction just sells it.
    Voychek: There goes my spare clothing.
    • Doubles as a Tear Jerker due to the circumstances, but seconds later, another kid tries to steal the briefcase that Voychek set on the table. Only to find out the hard way, that it was handcuffed to Voychek’s left arm.
      Voychek: They will not be so lucky with these documents.
  • AWACS Ghost Eye shares a few jokes every now and then with the Emmerian pilots. Such as how at the end of the second mission, Avalanche says that he’s a little embarrassed to return to base, and Ghost Eye joked that he will label him as ‘gunned down and missing in action’.
  • DJ Zed of Emmerian Independence Radio plays his part in the resistance by trolling:
    • At the beginning of Anea Landing, you hear an Estovakian propagandist broadcasting "how weak the Emmerians are, blah, blah, blah...", and in the midst, Zed interrupts it like "cool story bro, now here's some music."
    • At the beginning of the mission Ragno Fortress, DJ Zed apparently found out about the destruction of the Aigaion, and joked that the Estovakians shouldn’t be too disappointed when Emmeria shoots down all of their toys.
    • He also found out that it was Garuda team who delivered the finishing blow on the Aigaion, and had made some ‘Golden King Medals’ for them.
  • In one cutscene, when Voychek finishes interrogating a POW, he talks about how thanks to Garuda One, that the prisoners are now showing some backbone, and are using Matilda’s ‘Go dance with the angels’ line as an act of defiance. When the next prisoner comes in, he says that very line, and Voychek shakes his head.
    Voychek: Hmph. Another defiant one.
  • The last Strigon pilot you shoot down in the Moloch Desert mission to accomplish it...Genre Savvy much?
    Strigon pilot: "No! He got me! Aaaaaaaaaaaaagh!"
  • There's also a certain Mook in a mission somewhere in a Bind of Doom, in something along these lines:
    Stovie pilot: "I've got an ejection system malfunction! I can't eject! "
  • AWACS Ghost Eye is a refreshing change of pace from by the book Thunderhead, joking with pilots and snarking at them if they ever give him a chance.
    Avalanche: Heapin' all that praise on us has got me too red in the face to go back home...
    Ghost Eye: Roger that Avalanche. I'll just report you as gunned down and missing in action.
    Shamrock: I could've danced a few more numbers!
    Sky Kid: I'm still dancing. Go ahead and leave without me.
    Ghost Eye: Don't give me that Sky Kid! It's past your bedtime!
    Windhover: Heh, you'd make a scary mother Ghost Eye... But I guess we should make it back...
  • In Mission 12, we get this from Garuda 2:
    Shamrock: "We're not a couple of private dancers for the military, you know."
  • The Aigaion, and its escorts. Armed to the teeth, escorted by some of the best pilots available, and most importantly huge. Unfortunately for them, being so huge meant a sluggish A-10 could simply fly up to them and bomb them. Not even missiles, just going ahead and dropping a big, fat, unguided bomb or three on them. One can't help but find that little design oversight humorous.
  • Flying the units with The Idolmaster paint schemes in general. Sure is good to know that the Estovakian army is being obliterated by Garuda 1 in a jet with artwork of cute singing girls on the wings.
  • Mission 10 has an operation with the obligatory Ace Combat Tunnel Flight. It seems like nobody bothered to read up on their history of the past fifteen years as despite legendary pilots doing doing tunnel flights in significant historical battles, people on both sides crap their pants and call you insane for flying through tunnels.
    Bird Eater: Fighter jets diving into tunnels... That's never been done before.
  • Related to the above, a moment that doubles as an Awesome Moment is that while flying through one tunnel, you hear a Stovie footsoldier calling Talisman's move "insane". At the same time, you can actually hear a plane flying by on the Stovie's comms as if Talisman was actually flying over the poor sod at that moment.
  • A ragtag Emmerian tank crew ends up finding a certain object of interest instead of the mountains of money they expected. What do they do? Put the Golden King on their Challenger's barrel as if it was a pioneer-era wagon, drive it into the heart of Gracemeria, and proclaim the end of the war in absolutely over the top fashion. What makes this even better is that both the stature and the tank are still in the exact spot during the epilogue, suggesting that city officials had no intention of moving either of them.
