The stories share the experience of seeing familiar settings [[AlternateUniverseFic folded, spindled and mutilated]] to make their host canons fit the quasi-GrimDark universal structure. It's very good writing, and a novel concept carried off well. The author cites UndocumentedFeatures as an inspiration, but instead of the AuthorAvatar [[OriginalCharacter Original Characters]] that make up the core cast of UF, he uses the protagonists from whatever work he's fitting into Top Dog at the moment. There are also minor crossovers, references and {{Shout Out}}s to ''everywhere''; a list would be long, but includes at least StarWars, Franchise/StarTrek, ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', Literature/{{Discworld}}, Webcomic/GirlGenius, Film/TheMatrix, DavidWeber, ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'', TenchiMuyo, Franchise/{{Dune}}, Series/BabylonFive, ComicBook/{{Asterix}}, the CthulhuMythos, Franchise/SailorMoon, and {{Transformers}} along with, of course, the three core continuities.

* ''Biker Half'', which is RanmaOneHalf with a Nerima that is, by legal arcana, its own country fully owned and ruled by Soun Tendo, ruler of the Asinara clan of the [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Amerai]], which was long ago plunged into war with the Saotome clan by his father's insanity. After his father's assassination (at the hands of a [[ContinuityNod certain magi mercenary]]), he entered a deal with Akira Saotome, the [[TimeAbyss seventy-thousand-year-old]] lord of Clan Saotome, to end the fighting by marrying a child of his with Akira's Named heir, who just came back from a long trip bearing a certain shapeshifting curse.

** The other examples of Omega Weapons given in the comment thread were Omega One (God Almighty, and that gives you the kind of scale this list operates on), what would be Omega Two if her existence were publicly known ([[BuffyTheVampireSlayer Dawn Summers/The Key]], in this setting described to be "a living space/time occilation bomb with enough oomph to frappe entire universes", and the officially listed Omega Four (the [[SailorMoon Silver Imperium Crystal]]).

** First and foremost, Hermione herself; it's mentioned in the first book, then really made clear in the first summer intermission (Lunatic Scientist). It's also something of an InformedAttribute until that point, due to her lack of training; then during Lunatic Scientist, she lands Harry's CoolShip, which has lost control in high atmosphere while under attack, using the levitation spell meant for broomsticks, and takes out a Rancor, which Harry[[spoiler:-as-dragon]] was quite concerned about fighting, with one spell. WordOfGod about Hermione is that, with conscious attempts to overpower them as much as possible, her ''Lumos'' would leave permanent shadows on walls a la Hiroshima, and her ''Reducto'' would leave a crater a mile across. ''Lumos'' and ''Reducto'' in canon are, respectively, a low-level flashlight spell and a minor blasting spell. Later on we find out that Hermione is officially listed as the fifth most powerful weapon of mass destruction in her entire universe. For context, this is the same list that has the #1 most powerful WMD officially listed as "God Almighty", and one of the other top three being the [[SailorMoon Silver Imperium Crystal]]. Also revealed was that she is a deliberate genetic creation of [[Warhammer40K the God-Emperor]], and that she is ultimately intended to be used to destroy the Ruinous Powers themselves and cleanse the entire Warp.

Later on we find out that Hermione is officially listed as the Omega Five, fifth most powerful weapon from the top on the known universe's list of mass destruction Omega Weapons. The author clarified what that meant in a comment thread:
-->'''Doghead Thirteen:''' These are the sort of weapons that prevent wars merely by existing, and, when they come up for grabs, wars begin over who gets them. They are equivalent to really freakin' massive nuclear warheads on the scale of, if one goes off, fallout and nuclear winter will do for everyone on Earth even if the blast doesn't ignite the planet's atmosphere.

her existence were publicly known ([[BuffyTheVampireSlayer Dawn Summers/The Key]], in this setting described to be "a living space/time occilation bomb with enough oomph to frappe entire universe.
