Added DiffLines:

* MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds: Coop delivering a video game system to Gensokyo was well-intentioned, but according to Eirin, an overemphasis on technology would lead to magic's decline and Gensokyo's eventual cessation. Not that Kaguya cares, mind you.

* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Patchouli, having spent her entire life in the confines of the Mansion's library, is completely clueless to Jamie's attempts to sweet-talk her. When she hears Jamie's use of the word "chicks" in conversation, she assumes that he works as a farm hand; Koakuma tries to spell it out for her that Jamie was hitting on her, to no avail.


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewySquirrel: Tewi Inaba, though she admits later that she had no idea what Jamie was talking about when he asked for her telephone number.

** Sakuya's initial reaction when she realizes the threat that the newcomers and the "statue" potentially pose.


Added DiffLines:

* InsultBackfire: At some point, Marisa attempted to insult Yuuka by calling her a pansy. Understandably, she took it as a compliment. The failed insult gets a CallBack in the Extra Stage.


Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfIron: Yukari. Even after getting rammed by a mecha many times her size, she's not unconscious for long.

* GenreSavvy: When Coop announces that if they leave now, they'll be able to catch a program he's wanted to watch, Jamie points out that it's more likely that they'll run into something they could have avoided if they left earlier. Sure enough, cue the Lunar Defense Corps...

* RefugeInAudacity: During the aforementioned "Pass the Popcorn" moment, Yukari catches Yuyuko eating a Philly cheesesteak and asks what she was snacking on. Yuyuko's response? To devour the rest of the cheesesteak on the spot ''and flat-out lie to Yukari's face that she never had one.''
---> '''Yuyuko:''' What Philly cheesesteak? I don't see any. You must be imagining things, Yukari.
---> '''Yukari:''' I saw it right there in your hands.
---> '''Yuyuko:''' Saw what?
---> '''Yukari:''' The food.
---> '''Yuyuko:''' But there ''isn't'' any food in my hands. That's crazy talk.
---> '''Yukari:''' Yuyuko, I specifically saw you devour a Philly cheesesteak. Why are you so intent on telling me you didn't?
---> '''Yuyuko:''' If you saw me eat it, why are you asking me about it?


Added DiffLines:

* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Yukari and Yuyuko, respectively.

* ImplacableMan: Yuuka. Until the battle's finale, nothing that Coop and company can throw at her does more than temporarily slow her down.

* BeneathTheMask: [[spoiler: Yukari's known as a superlative chessmaster with a cunning mind, a brilliantly lazy trickster capable of playing both sides against each other. After everyone except Yuyuko leaves following the fight, we find out that part of it's a facade: she's aware of Evil Coop's existence and how important Megas really is to Gensokyo's existence, and she's dreading what could possibly happen with the situation completely out of her hands.]]

!! The main story and Alternate Ending of ''Fantasy of Utter Ridiculousness'' contains examples of the following tropes:

* AnswerCut: Coop wonders at one point just who in their right mind would enjoy ''tofu''. Cue cut to Ran Yakumo, wondering why she feels she ought to defend her snack choices.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Averted with Jamie, who points out that they ride around in a stolen robot from the future to fight space squids (also from the future) on a fairly regular basis, also bringing up some of their more outlandish adventures as well, as reasons why they shouldn't dismiss the existence of magic.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking:
-->'''Jamie:''' So, who else are we going to meet today? Living phantoms? Talking cats? Tofu enthusiasts?
* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: Lampshaded with Megas's Plot Sensitive Button when it reads "Technology does not work this way", just before Coop fires a reverse MIRV at Suika.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: The giant fairies.
** It's a crossover with WesternAnimation/MegasXLR. Does anything more ''really'' need to be said?
* BigDamnHeroes: Marisa is able to accomplish this, although she isn't aware of it.
** In Chapter 4, Alice is preparing for the unsavory task of dodging attacks from three giant fairies, whose danmaku have become massive to match. Cue the sun, literally, as the investigative Patchouli drops her Royal Flare spell card on their heads.
* BigNo: [[spoiler: Patchouli's reaction when she discovers that most of the Mansion's library was destroyed in the Alternate Ending.]]

include:



* CreditsGag: The explanations in the Author's Notes are separated by one-paragraph depictions of events taking place during later visits to Gensokyo, mimicking the style used throughout Megas XLR's run.
* CultureBlind: Alice realizes this about Coop when he, as a visitor, gave her something to drink instead of the other way around.
* CurbstompBattle: Megas deals two of these, one against Kyla's Guardsman and the other against the giant fairies.
* DeconstructionFic: One common plot in Touhou fanfiction involves one or more characters being dropped into Gensokyo and adjusting to life there, usually because of Yukari (or in this story, because of the Lunarians). The problem here arises when its Coop and the others, with [[HumongousMecha Megas]] in tow, that are warped on in; by the time the battles run their course, Reimu and Yukari are both in agreement that they do ''not'' belong.

Extra Stage's epilogue.



* DestructiveSavior: The Lunarians thank Coop (albeit not in person) for getting rid of the Glorft base in the Moon, but they deemed him so dangerous that they decided to put him down. Then again, this pretty much ''is'' Coop's MO...
* DeusExitMachina: Hello, Megas. Good-bye, Yukari. See you when you wake up.



* DisasterDominoes: One of these starts with Megasís teleportation into Gensokyo, and ends with Marisa being injured and stuck under her collection of trash. She doesnít hold it against Coop, thankfully.
* DopeSlap: [[spoiler: In the credits, Koakuma does this to Jamie, so that he stops hitting on Patchouli]].
** MomentKiller
* EntertaininglyWrong: Alice misunderstands "Megas" to mean that the mech is a ''magus''. Sakuya, who was eavesdropping on the group when they met, becomes unnerved when she comes to the same conclusion.
* ExcusePlot: The Lunarians, Alice's danmaku demonstration, and the giant fairy attack all serve one purpose: letting Megas fight Suika.
* FearOfThunder: Flandre, of all people. The weather patterns caused by the lunar explosion were long-lasting and intense enough that she was ''scared sane.''
* [[spoiler: FishOutOfWater: Patchouli's fate in the Alternate Ending. May also be a case of ''temporal'' water as well, given the difference in the settings.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Throughout the story, a trapped Marisa can be seen struggling to grab her mini-hakkero that's just ''this... much...'' out of reach. No guesses for what happens when she finally reaches it.
* GenreSavvy: When Coop announces that if they leave now, they'll be able to catch a program he's wanted to watch, Jamie points out that it's more likely that they'll run into something they could have avoided if they left earlier. Sure enough, cue the Lunar Defense Corps...
* {{Golem}}: In addition to the "magus" deal described above, Megas is mistaken for a giant statue or puppet by Alice and the residents of the SDM.
* HalfHumanHybrid: At one point, Jamie announces to Patchouli and Kiva that one of his ancestors was a Youkai... before immediately turning this around by saying that he was just messing with them.
* IKnowMortalKombat: Since it comes off as one big game, Coop is able to get the hang of Spell Card-based combat rather quickly.
* KillItWithIce: Megas's frost sword. Fittingly, it's powered by a Strawberry Mega Slush.



* [[LetsYouAndHimFight Let's You and Me Fight]]: Suika says this when she thinks Coop is deliberately withholding her prized gourd from her. [[spoiler: One of the giant fairies Megas was fighting was responsible, albeit accidentally.]]
* {{Magitek}}:
** [[spoiler: In the Alternate Ending, Coop combines Patchouli's "Philosopher's Stone" card with Megas's systems. The resulting multi-element attack finishes off Suika and demolishes most of the Scarlet Devil Mansion's library in one go.]]
** ''[[spoiler: Divine Northern Fist: Fantastic Piledriver.]]''
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Destruction visited upon the Forest of Magic? Marisa trapped in her own house? The giant fairies, and the subsequent showdown with Suika? Yukari, who could've prevented it all at the outset, getting decked on accident when Megas first arrives? Just another day in the life of Coop.
** The Lunarians admit that they had no idea what the Glorft were planning and were mostly hiding from them, but that if MEGAS (and her crew) hadn't been there, they probably would have stayed hidden until the Glorft would have gone away... meaning that both the Lunarians and the Earth would have been destroyed. They give this realization to themselves and resolve to be more decisive next time.
