Nightmare Fuel / Ace Combat

Go To

Despite your being the badass pilot of various, often advanced, jet fighters through the game, the game at times still depicts war as it is with the only way to sugarcoat them being making a lot of things implied, War Is Hell...

How the entire series (with the exception of Assault Horizon due to obvious presence of blood and human combatants in action and Infinity due to being an online game) got away with an equivalent of Everyone rating in Japan is everyone's guess...


In General:

  • Some music tracks can be scary as well, such as "Silent" from Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies or "Zero Sum" from Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere.
  • You can hear the enemy chatter over the radio, often sounding distressed and desperate as the battle starts to go against their favor. While it can make you feel like a badass whose mere presence strikes fear in your foes, it's also a grim reminder that at the end of the day, many of your enemies are humans who are just serving their country much like you are.
