** [[http://rustyland.webs.com/newcaptainn.htm ''The New Captain N'']], where Max escapes to the other world and begins a search for Kevin, while trying to win Samus's heart.
** [[http://rustyland.webs.com/thedragmireconspiracy.htm ''The Dragmire Conspiracy'']], where a plot to revive Ganon tosses the heroes back in time, rendering them unable to prevent his return (but not his demise!!)
** [[http://rustyland.webs.com/maxcomehome.htm Max,Come Home!!]], in which Max discovers a means to travel to Earth, only to find it is an Earth inhabited by Earth-based games, and an alternate continuity of his family, where he has a brother.
** [[http://rustyland.webs.com/legendofgreenmushroom.htm The Legend of the Green Mushroom]], where Max discovers the secret to so many characters remaining their original age for over twenty years.
** [[http://rustyland.webs.com/ridleyslaststand.htm ''Ridley's Last Stand!!'']], Ridley unleashes several of his clones (key to his constant revival) at once in a plot to overpower Samus and the planet. Kevin Keene has an idea to stop him, but its execution comes at a terrible cost.

** ''This is Not My Home''; Max awakens back in the world he came from, with only a broken power glove as a souvenir. Max is eager to return to the videogame world, but his friends and family will do anything to keep him from leaving. He eventually convinces them that he is needed elsewhere, takes a friend with him, and learns how the videogame world really came to be.

** ''CRUSH THE FORCE!!''; A continuation of the previous volume and a massive homage to Gradius. Max and Robert are back in the videogame world, but a long way from home. Max wants desperately to return to his friends on Gaia, but before he can, he needs to save a distant galaxy from a planet-eater he unwittingly helped create.

** ''Resurrection''; Max and Robert have successfully ventured to Gaia, only to find that it has essentially become an amusement park, (almost) all of the videogame characters are now stressed out by it, and Samus has gone off the grid, on a mad hunt for Ridley's remaining clones.

** The Adventures of Max Walker: a humorous side-series that takes more literary freedoms and ViolationOfCommonSense, among other things, mostly for RuleOfFunny.

* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Ridling is a federation-born Ridley clone that was genetically altered to reach its [[MetroidOtherM third "Dragon-like" form]] at an infant state, with no GeneticMemory whatsoever. In other words, a good Ridley that is also adorable.

* TheWorfBarrage: Attempting to stop Ganon, Captain Falcon drives his Blue Falcon toward him at full speed, Stops on a dime (ejecting at the same time), flies through the air, and delivers a full-power Falcon Punch to his face. Ganon is mildly annoyed to have his head get twisted 90 degrees.

* CharacterDerailment / FauxActionGirl: in comparison to the character of the actual games, Samus sure does need [[DistressedDamsel saving a lot.]] This is later [[LampshadedTrope lampshaded]] by both Max and Link.



* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming,[[spoiler: when Schala returns, causing Magus to question his beliefs (followed by the [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming typical]] reaction that occurs in fanfics when they reunite.)]]
* CrowningMomentofAwesome: [[spoiler: An enraged Max shoots himself up with a syringe full of now-deceased Samus's blood. Next chapter, Ridley is totally destroyed by someone wearing the Varia suit.]]
** Pretty much any time Link actually gets an opportunity to do his job, he [[TookALevelInBadass soon starts being taken seriously.]]
** The climax of Ridley's Last Stand, when Max defeats Ridley with nothing but the Power Glove.
*** so, he just killed a dragon with his (almost) bare hands?
*** amazing, isn't it?
** Or how about the fact that Max set out for Ridley's station despite being completely unarmed and stripped of his gear? Sure, he ended up with Link in tow, but he didn't know that setting out.
*** Why didn't Megaman just go with him?
** '''"I AM BOWSER!! KING OF THE KOOPAS!!"'''
** "What are you gonna do with that gun, kid?"
* CrowningMusicofAwesome: Unusual given that there's no actual background music to what is a series of text documents. However, WordOfGod has stated that several scenes, and even entire chapters have appropriate musical counterparts.
** The above CrowningMomentofAwesome, for example, was written with the end credits of Super Metroid in mind.
** Max and Crab building their BambooTechnology? Original Brinstar theme. (appropriate, given the chapter is closely tied to the episode "Metroid sweet Metroid", which used the same song in a seriously crowning moment.)
** The entire ending of the first book, starting from the narrative on Ridley, is the ending credits to the original Metroid.
** In a notably non-Metroid example, the museum "stage" Megaman ventures through: it's [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Yakogoro Eirin's]] theme from MegaMari.
** Salamander's "Poison of Snake", during major conflicts. This is a ShoutOut to CaptainN's use of the "Fortress" theme from the famicom Gradius II.



* CompleteMonster: Ganon, whose first known casualty in the series is '''a small child'''
** The effect is somewhat lost, due to the fact that the slaughtered child is [[spoiler: [[TheScrappy Bowser Junior]] ]]
* ContinuityNod, and how!! Despite existing in the same universe, several games, events, and other canon are implied to have happened exactly, or well near it.

* FridgeHorror: It is subtly implied that both Max and Samus are hiding mental problems brought on by unfortunate pasts. Both have been dealing with them since childhood, but taking into consideration just how old Samus really is...



** Link, of course...[[spoiler: though not necessarily male]]
* LesYay: Peach is not too subtle about her attraction to Samus.

* MoralEventHorizon: Max eventually shot and killed [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Snake]] for getting on his nerves, [[spoiler: although the whole thing was retconned from existence by the ResetButton below.]]
** [[ColonelKilgore Damara]] Attempts to take advantage of Gaia's deserted state at the end of ''Ridley's Last Stand'' to invade it claim it for the Federation. It takes a call from Chairman Keaton himself to put a stop to it.
