OmniverseGC is a large ScienceFiction SharedUniverse wiki taking place in a collection of original universes founded on March 13, 2012. The wiki incorporates a good degree of hard science fiction. Most of the wiki's stories take place in the Omni 01 universe particularly revolving around the affairs of the galaxy-spanning alliance of superpowers known as the Galactic Senate. Originating in 2009 as part of the SporeWikiFictionUniverse, three years later it would break off into an entirely different series of its own and having very little to do with {{Spore}}. Because of this, both wikis share many similarities in style and setting, though OmniverseGC tends to focus more on professionalism. Anyone can contribute to the wiki, though new writers are required to create a pitch showcasing what they plan to write.

After its first year anniversary, the series received numerous reboots in an attempt to fix some long standing problems including the use of numerous Dicredited Tropes.

OmniverseGC is located [[http://omniversegc.wikia.com/wiki/Omniverse_GC_Wiki here]].
There are still many more stories in OmniverseGC, varying in style and size.

[[Characters/OmniverseGC Here is a list of the characters from Omniverse GC.]]

[[ShoutOut/OmniverseGC Here is a list of shout outs in Omniverse GC.]]

OmniverseGC contains examples of the following:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:General]]
* AboveGoodAndEvil - A commonly enforced theme to encourage users to be more original.
* AbnormalAmmo - Expect to see things such as acid spit or shuriken being fired from a gun.
* ActionGirl - An increasingly common trope as more characters get added.
* AlienBlood - Played with. Some aliens have normal, red blood. Others have yellow, green or blue blood.
* AlienSky - Given the setting, this is to be expected. Usually, the first thing that is described when a character lands on another planet is the sky.
* AllPlanetsAreEarthLike - Heavily subverted. Almost every single habitable planet is vastly different from Earth.
* AlternateUniverse - The whole setting of OmniverseGC. Humans had left Earth in the 1980s after being attacked by the Harbingers.
* {{Antimatter}} - used as one of many weapons
* AuthorAppeal - More often than not, factions are often modeled after the belief systems and ideals of the user who created it. For balancing, the more experienced users will often create other factions which serve as foils.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness - Naturally averted when most aliens are modeled after monstrous/animalistic creatures.
* CanonDiscontinuity - Can happen frequently due to large scale retcons.
* CreatorBacklash - After the near-completion of one of Dark Prophecy's drafts, a scathing self-review was posted by one of its main authors - the main criticisms being the numerous use of pet peeve tropes.
* EarthIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse - The wiki openly encouraged to avert this trope at all costs.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness - Some of the wiki's earliest stories alluded greatly to typical fantasy tropes and had characters that were not so intelligent, a stark contrast to the more realistic style the wiki became after the retcons.
* FollowTheLeader - It is not uncommon for new users to create civilizations that have remarkable similarities to those that have been around since the beginning.
* GenreShift - Originally a science fantasy, the wiki has shifted from level 2 to level 4 on MohsScaleofSciFiHardness since its inception.
* GreyAndBlackMorality - If the bad guy is straight-up evil, then usually, the hero has some dark backstory.
* GreyAndGrayMorality - If there are no wickedly evil villains, this will almost always be the case.
* InvincibleHero - A common mistake made by new users. Does not occur in the canon, however.
* SelfParody - One-Man Army and the Malexemplum are examples.
* SturgeonsLaw - When this begun to occur on the wiki, a pitch system was put in place.
* Troperiffic - Virtually every character backstory is this.
[[/folder]]


[[folder:In-universe tropes]]
* AGodAmI - Altus Banya believes that he is such.
* AllDesertsHaveCacti - Played with. Most deserts do not have cactus-like plants, but some Ucharpli's deserts do.
** The Codgele desert has severl cactus-like plants.
** The Kaktice, which is an ice cactus, grows in the frozen continent of Aggateya.
* TheAlliance - The Galactic Senate.
* AppliedPhlebotinum - Maj.
** Some Ancient technology is this as well.
* BadassCrew - The Galactic Senate Special Operations Corps.
* BizarreAlienBiology - Vaikan have livers in their necks which is their only means of breaking down food. And their equivalent of vomitting is sneezing.
* BreakThemByTalking - The Altusian Brotherhood assassinates its victims by doing this.
* CallASmeerpARabbit - Some of Ucharpli's native fauna share the same names as Earth creatures. Also, some creatures from Delse (IE: the Sevritulin and Kralikov) have nicknames containing Earth creature names (Vorpal Mantis and Saberback Salamander respectively).
* CastFromHitPoints - Maj works by drawing energy from an object. Majites will draw energy from themselves and can potentially pass out if overused.
* {{Conlang}} - The languages of Yallvus Talk and Luuschtuntski have articles which explain grammar structure and list common vocabulary, including swear words.
* CosmicRetcon - Happens all the time.
* {{Cult}} - The Altusian Brotherhood.
* DarkIsNotEvil - Ahrganot Skizgo.
* DeadpanSnarker - Tholker Zhevhyit.
* DeathWorld - Not counting any of the uninhabitable planets, there are several that fall under this category.
** Most of Ucharpli's wildlife is very territorial and aggressive making it dangerous to travel through its wilderness without a weapon.
** Delse has a plethora of large predators.
** Silva has an entire ecosystem of large carnivorous plants.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu - The Harbingers are said to be the manifestation of an actual deity. Yet organic life has been beating them up consistently over billions of years.
* TheEmpire - Reconstructed. Any civilization that has empire qualities portrays them in a positive light.
* EternalEnglish - Averted. It is acknowledged that languages constantly change and evolve.
* {{Expy}} - When OmniverseGC broke off from Spore Wiki, the Grox were renamed "Harbingers".
** Later, their motives were explained in greater detail, and now they bear a striking resemblance to [[Franchise/MassEffect Reapers]].
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs - There are a plethora of dinosaur-like aliens such as the Makaridons from Ucharpli and the Teraqila from Ashadra. No actual dinosaurs from Earth appear though.
* FasterThanLightTravel - The wiki utilizes nearly every form of theoretical faster than light travel.
* FantasticRacism -Played realistically based on the political status of the different species.
* FantasyCounterpartCulture - Many of Omni 01's alien cultures are very foreign to humans, though there are a few that bear a strong resemblance to some real-world ones.
* GenreSavvy - Nearly every character is somewhat savvy in the Space Opera genre.
* HeroicBSOD - Happens to both Ahrganot Skizgo and Etah Owar.
* HumanAliens - Averted. Enforced for the Malexemplum to show how implausible the trope is.
* HumansAreAverage - Many species are compared directly to humans.
* HumansAreFlawed - Exaggerated. ALL sentient beings are flawed.
* HumansAreSpecial - The Queen Anne Union is a direct jab at this trope - an egostical group of humans that thinks Earth is the most important planet in the universe.
* HumanoidAliens - The majority of alien races are this.
* InterContinuityCrossover - It is implied that Omni 01 is within the same continuity as Wiki/MultiversesWiki. A more direct crossover between the two is scheduled to occur soon.
* InsectoidAliens - The Sarkakion and the Malenven. The Delsons, while mostly reptilian, have a few insectoid features.
* InsignificantLittleBluePlanet - Very much so to the point where humans complain about not getting enough attention.
* InvincibleHero - Parodied in "The Impossible Dossier"
** Parodied once more in "The One-Man Army". Then, it gets deconstructed with a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech towards the said hero.
* ItsAllUpstairsFromHere - Lampshaded. Tholker Zhevhyit complains about the layout of Infra's castle being this way.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall - The wiki's fictional backstory is based around actual events that took place behind the scenes such as when certain authors joined the wiki.
** An in-universe example is Uszaroth's tendency to reference the audience and/or readers.
** Another in-universe example occurs in "The One-Man Army" when the Titan King (aka God) stops a story from continuing because it was upsetting the balance of the universe.
* TheManBehindTheMan - [[spoiler:Y'knahn]] and [[spoiler:Renr Gron]] were being manipulated by [[spoiler:Altus Infra]].
* {{Two-DSpace}} - Averted. There are trade routes in the Milky Way that go both under and over the Galactic Core instead of through it.
* MasterRace - The Estin.
* ManEatingPlant - The planet Silva's ecosystem consists only of plant-like life forms. Naturally, man-eating plants can be found here.
* MeaningfulName - Extremely common whether it be in a real language or one of the constructed ones.
** Vaikan is derived from the Lithuanian word for child. It also has connotations to the Vikings.
** Latin is a common language used for planet names. They translate to what the planet's characteristics are like.
* MedievalStasis - Averted. Technology is constantly advancing, though the rate of it depends on the civilization.
* NinjaSchool - The Malinian Combat Institution
* OneBigLie - Most particularly, the energy force known as Maj which has become the basis for an entire empire's technology.
** Other properties of Omni 01 such as downplayed relativity and the RuleOfCool are [[HandWave hand waved]] as unusual phenomena.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent - The Demons of OmniverseGC prefer to seclude themselves in their own pocket dimension, with the exception of Uszaroth.
* PardonMyKlingon - Tholker Zhevhyit often cusses in Luuschtuntski.
* PlanetEater - Vernietigen, but on a much larger scale. He devours entire universes to reset them to how they were just before the Big Bang.
* PlanetOfHats - Deconstructed with the Sinister Hegemony. It is a socialist dictatorship where individual alien races were modified to be only capable of one single societal role.
* PowerGlows - Inverted. The more a Maj user glows, the less efficiently they are using their Maj.
* PrecisionFStrike - Swearing is moderately common, though expletives harsher than "damn" are rare. Using a ClusterFBomb is against the wiki's rules.
* {{Precursors}} - The group of species known as "Ancients".
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech - Altus Infra delivers several of these.
* {{Retcon}} - Retcons occur very frequently on the wiki.
** Operation Intervention was retconned to be part of a ShowWithinAShow.
** Even the most developed civilizations on the wiki get redone from time to time.
* RiddleMeThis - Ahrganot Skizgo has to answer a riddle while undergoing Dominion's trials.
* RuleOfCool - Used sparingly to justify reality breaks.
* SandIsWater - The Sand-Sea on Delse.
** Discussed during Operation Titanic Discoveries where it is ultimately justified.
* SelfParody - There are a few example stories as such.
* SevenDeadlySins - The Sinister Hegemony consists of seven races. Each represent a deadly sin.
** Lusari - Lust
** Glukar - Gluttony
** Avarith - Greed
** Slothra - Sloth
** Rirath - Wrath
** Malenven - Envy
** Eghos - Pride
* ShoutOut - A whole page of them here
* ShiftingSandLand - There are tons of deserts. The planets of Delse, Alk'charis and Jaran just to name a few.
* ShownTheirWork - Extensive research is done before articles and stories are written.
** A lot of effort is put into getting space physics correct. Disputes have actually arisen as to whether ArtisticLicense should be used in some scenarios.
** The article on the Eteno Imperial Armed Forces goes into great detailed regarding the types of guns used as well as ships.
** For the planet Ucharpli, Earth's ecology and creatures were extensively researched beforehand.
* SiliconBasedLife - The Desiir. There are a few ammonia-based and methane-based life forms as well.
* SingleBiomePlanet - The majority of garden worlds avert this.
** Non-garden worlds will usually play this straight.
* SpaceIsAnOcean - Though OmniverseGC gets space physics correct, starships share the same classifications as nautical vessels.
* SpaceIsNoisy - Averted in the main stories. Lampshaded with a [[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth wall break]] in The One-Man Army.
-->'''Narrator:''' "The sound of it (an explosion) echoed across the cosmos and could be heard from lightyears away."
-->'''Uszaroth:''' "Somewhere, an astronomy buff is crying himself to death after reading those last two paragraphs."
* SpacePirates - Lots of them.
* SpaceOpera - Reconstructed. It ranks 4 on MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness.
* StealthInSpace - Averted. However, in previous drafts, it was possible.
* {{Steampunk}} - Vaikan architecture is described as such.
* StrangeSyntaxSpeaker - The Nuuska
* SuperiorSpecies - Deconstructed. It is implied that achieving the status of utopia is actually a form of cultural regression.
** Played for laughs with the Malexemplum Empire. The goal was to point out the flaws of a MarySueTopia.
* SwordAndGun - The majority of Vaikan soldiers follow this format.
* {{Technobabble}} - Averted. The wiki highly discourages the use of it.
* TimeTravel - Double subverted. Temporal properties of Omni 01 disallow it at first, yet somehow [[AWizardDidIt Etah Owar could communicate to his dead ancestor through the Nexus of Time]].
* TitleDrop - Happens in "The Best of the Best" and "The Final Confronation".
** In the latter, a TitleDrop on the story arc is present.
* TranslationConvention - OmniverseGC uses universal translators allowing communication between races, a case of TranslatorMicrobes, though English is never actually spoken by any characters.
* UniversalUniverseTime - Double subverted. Each alien race has their own calendar and measurement system, though relativity as it applies to time is deliberately ignored in the universe of Omni 01.
** Justified as it's stated that in Omni 01, relativity works for space, but not time.
* WellIntentionedExtremist - Altus Infra is actually trying to [[spoiler: save the universe from being destroyed by Vernietigen.]]
* VillainHasAPoint - The Harbingers are intiailly portrayed as typical [[OmnicidalManiac omnicidal maniacs]], but their true purpose was [[spoiler:to protect the universe from interference of forces that were too powerful to exist in Omni 01]].
* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm - The home dimension of the Titans known as the Hub, though it appears as the Milky Way's galactic core. Mortals are unable to comprehend its existence and therefore cannot enter it.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Vaikan]]
* {{Acrofatic}} - To a lesser extent. Female Vaikan are pudgy, yet still very agile.
* {{Animesque}} - Vaikan are drawn in this style. Justified in that they actually look like that.
* BigEater - Often associated with their meal customs.
* BizarreAlienBiology - While rather humanoid on the outside, their internal anatomy is completely different from that of a human's.
* LighterAndSofter - The Vaikan were originally genocidal maniacally dragon-like creatures. They've now become cutesy, plush doll-like creatures.
* MasculineLinesFeminineCurves - Ahrganot Skizgo is significantly more rigid looking than Salanna Zenklah. Justified as actual anatomical differences.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Early draft tropes]]
* AuthorFilibuster - In The Final Confrontation, Etah preaches how much better chaos is than order. The segment was later removed.
* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy - Previous drafts had other civilizations inspiring Earth's cultures in the ancient past. Later averted for continuity purposes.
* TheMilkyWayIsTheOnlyWay - In the earliest drafts, ships could travel throughout the Milky Way Galaxy within hours, yet going into another galaxy remained impossible. When other galaxies were introduced to make more room, naturally, this trope got averted.
* SuperiorSpecies - When OmniverseGC was part of SFF Wiki, this trope was played completely straight.

* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy - Previous drafts had other civilizations inspiring Earth's cultures in the ancient past. Later averted for continuity purposes.
* TheMilkyWayIsTheOnlyWay - In the earliest drafts, ships could travel throughout the Milky Way Galaxy within hours, yet going into another galaxy remained impossible. When other galaxies were introduced to make more room, naturally, this trope got averted.

The Dark Prophecy story arc is the largest collection of stories on the wiki to date revolving around a team known as the Galactic Senate Special Operations Corps (or GSSOC) and their efforts to stop the evil overlord Altus Infra from taking over the universe. Little do they know that things are not as simple as they seem. The story arc has been in production since December 23, 2010, and is nearly complete, needing only several revisions to accompany the wiki's recent retcons.

Two more major story arcs are currently planned known as Chaos Crisis and Galactic Apocalypse respectively. Chaos Crisis will involve the [[NiceJobBreakingItHero consequences of the GSSOC's actions]] during Dark Prophecy. Galactic Apocalypse takes place after the GSSOC's attempt to remedy the consequences during Chaos Crisis, but ultimately they have to fight against a force that [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt threatens to destroy the universe]].



*AbnormalAmmo - Expect to see things such as acid spit or shuriken being fired from a gun.
* ActionGirl - An increasingly common trope as more characters get added.
*AlienBlood - Played with. Some aliens have normal, red blood. Others have yellow, green or blue blood.



* {{Antimatter}} - used as one of many weapons



*SturgeonsLaw - When this begun to occur on the wiki, a pitch system was put in place.




* AbnormalAmmo - Delsons can fight using their spit, and Ahrganot Skizgo's gun can shoot shuriken.
** Lampshaded in Operation Money Cushion.
-->'''Tholker:''' "I still don't get that silly weapon of yours. Guns are supposed to shoot bullets..."
* AbortedArc - Tyrannis. He is mentioned as a threat on par with Altus Infra, but remains unresolved even after [[spoiler:Infra is defeated]].
** This is because one of the authors working on this particular plot point had left the wiki while Dark Prophecy was still being written.
* AirVentPassageWay - Lampshaded twice. Once in Operation Raising Hell. The other time in Operation Money Cushion.
-->'''Narrator:''' "Luckily, the hotel was not designed by an evil overlord who would have been smart enough to make the vents too small for anyone to crawl through."
* ActionGirl - An increasingly common trope as more characters get added.
* AGodAmI - Altus Infra proclaims the Dhragolon as the new Harbingers.

* AllMythsAreTrue - This is the case with Dhragolon mythology. Double subverted when [[spoiler:Na'zrah tells Etah that the entirety of Sauren religion is wrong. However, we later find out that the Angels really do exist according to future story plans.]]
