  • Fan Nickname: As you might expect.
    • Andy: Blandy Andy, for his complete lack of a day to day power.
    • Sami: Lady of War. Anyone who knows the power of Victory March will know why.
  • Name's the Same: Yamamoto may refer to Mr. Yamamoto from Super Famicom Wars or Sensei's name in the Japanese versions of the Advance Wars games. Although it is strongly suggested that Sensei was once an unbeatable CO, so it's not that much of a stretch to assume it was an intentional Shout-Out.

  • No Export for You: Every game prior to Advance Wars were released exclusively in Japan. Inverted for a while with the Japanese version of Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict, which the physical release was canceled after many delays but eventually made it out on DSiWare exclusively as a Club Nintendo reward.
  • Orphaned Series: The last game in the series proper was Days of Ruin, released all the way back in early 2008.note  There hadn't been a peep out of the franchise until June 2017, in which we finally get an explanation: Thanks to the success of Fire Emblem and its relationship system, a producer at Nintendo wants to integrate something similar into this series but isn't sure how to do it successfully.
  • Sequel First: Japan had an unusual example regarding the original Advance Wars. Its release was delayed there due to the September 11th attacks (the American release was saved by virtue of being released on September 10th). It ultimately wouldn't be released until 2004, when it was bundled alongside Black Hole Rising as a double pack.
