  Day fighter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A day fighter is a fighter aircraft equipped only to fight during the day.
Examples of planes that were classified as day fighters were the Supermarine Spitfire and Messerschmitt Bf 109.
The last of the day fighters were the F-16 and the YF-17 that competed for the Light Weight Fighter contract which had the goal of providing the USAF with an inexpensive day fighter that could be purchased in great numbers to establish air superiority.

 Day fighter
More specifically it is typically used to refer to a multi-purpose aircraft that does not include equipment for fighting at night, although it is sometimes used to refer to some interceptors as well.
Today almost all fighter aircraft have enough equipment to be used as a night fighter, so the term day fighter has fallen from use.
Perhaps the last of the day fighters was the Northrop F-5 Freedom Fighter, a small plane that was capable of carrying out most missions including light bombing, strike and interception, yet included no radar.

 II./JG 1 in Normandy
The mission of these fighter units was to establish air superiority over the invasion beaches and protect the reserve forces being brought up for the decisive counter-attack.
All the new aircraft were hidden under trees and days passed when flights scheduled for take off at 0800 hours had to wait until 2000 hours for the skies to clear so that the Focke-Wulfs could be quickly hauled out from their camouflaged bowers.
The next day, there were three missions by the combined units from Semallé with a total strength of fourteen aircraft, losing two pilots and four aircraft with no victories claimed.

 CHAPTER 7 Day-Fighters and Fighter-bombers | NZETC
On some days several missions would be flown, usually as cover for British bombers in their attacks on airfields and industrial targets in northern France and Belgium or as escort to American Fortresses bombing targets in France, Holland and Germany.
A few days later the New Zealanders were covering United States Marauders during their return flight from France when Checketts saw a formation of German fighters coming in to attack the bombers.
These fighters tried twice to get to the bombers but were prevented by a section of six Spitfires from No. 485 which dived on them and finally drove them down almost to ground level, while the rest of the Biggin Hill Wing was able to escort the bombers clear of the French coast.

 A Fire Fighter's Day
Fire fighters world wide are now expected to prepare for and respond to almost any emergency imaginable, as well as to educate the public through fire and safety programs and inspections.
These days this is far from true as each year new demands are placed on the fire fighters to provide a variety of services that increase almost daily.
Emergencies happen day or night, during weekends or on weekdays, and the commitment of the fire fighters is to both respond when the bell sounds and to provide the highest level of service possible to their community.

Opponent A uses Holy Day, the day matching his opponents move so he gains immunity to it, then he uses Mastery to change his move into that of his style, thats 2 flags just right there.
Holy Day: The fighter may once per fight declare a new Holy day, thus changing the style of the day.
First, I believe the idea of Holy Day either not giving immunity or only being able to be used on the style of the current move of the holy warrior is going to be implemented soon.

General Dynamic's F-16 was designed to be a single-engine, single-seat lightweight day fighter with performance rivaling that of much larger and more expensive aircraft.

 Junkers Ju 88 Fighter Variants
By the middle of 1944, the night fighter force had become the strongest and most efficient arm of the Luftwaffe, comprising almost fifteen per cent of its first line strength.
The new fighter offered a maximum speed similar to that of the much smaller Messerschmitt Bf 110, but with three times the range, and the type was ordered into limited production.
The introduction of increasingly heavier armament, more armour, and a radar operator had a detrimental affect on the low-speed handling qualities of the overburdened Ju 88C series, and it was becoming apparent that the development of a specialised Ju 88 night-fighter model was now necessary to restore lost performance and safe handling.
