A MassiveMultiplayerCrossover in the form of an [[MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame MMORPG]] made by Creator/CartoonNetwork. Planet Fusion, a living planet made out of a green, gooey substance, has attacked Earth, and it's up to you, a bunch of {{animesque}} versions of characters from Cartoon Network franchises, and many, many other people to stop the alien invaders. The game has a simple but effective equipment system arming you with Guns, Swords, Bombs, Guitars, Frisbees, and other items to defeat the opposition, while giving you shirts, pants, and shoes to protect yourself, while masks, helmets and capes/backwear are just for show.

However, the biggest change to the MMO formula came with Nanos, [[SuperDeformed miniature versions]] of Cartoon Network characters that are gained on level-up instead of stat bonuses. You can have three nanos with you at all times, and each has three abilities, of which each can only use one, granting you a variety of different layouts and choices, such as having [[CodenameKidsNextDoor Numbuh Two]] provide super speed, the ability to warp back to specific locations in dungeons, or increased money gain upon defeating enemies.\\
\\
Used to be played on [[http://fusionfall.cartoonnetwork.com/splashpage.php here]]\\
And there's a [[http://fusionfall.wikia.com/wiki/FusionFall_Wiki wiki]]!

There's also a spinoff set in the same continuity as the main game called ''Fusionfall Heroes''. Instead of being an MMO platformer like FusionFall, it's an overhead 3D action game ala ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' with both a single player and online multiplayer opponent that lets you choose between various Cartoon Network heroes and take them into combat. [[http://blog.cartoonnetwork.com/2013/03/19/coming-soon-fusionfall-heroes/ Here's a preview.]] [[http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/games/fusionfall-heroes/index.html Here's the game.]]

!! General

* {{Animesque}}: Done to pretty much everyone to a slight degree in an attempt to unify art styles, but done most obviously (which is to say, ''really'' obviously) to the Powerpuffs and to Dexter. Reaction to the Puffs has been mixed, but the new, older, richer-and-Tony-Stark-like Dexter... uh, [[EstrogenBrigadeBait doesn't have any female detractors]], at any rate.
* CrisisCrossover

!! Manga Preview

* BigDamnHeroes: Constantly
* TheCameo: Silhouettes of Ed, Edd and Eddy and Samurai Jack are seen at the beginning but they don't play a role in the story. Likewise Coop and Jamie's silhouettes show up later but they don't notice the carnage going on outside.
** Charles Darwin Middle School, Endsville, and Orchid Bay also make cameos.
* DanceBattler: Dee Dee.
* GenkiGirl: Dee Dee.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: The heroes think they've stopped the fuse spores and the source from where it's coming from. Turns out it was a ''beacon'' and by blowing it up they've ''brought Planet Fuse right to them''.]]
* NotMeThisTime: While Mojo had intended to do a scheme at the start of the story, the Fuse beat him to it and he has to stop Blossom from socking him to warn the heroes of the incoming threat.
* {{Prequel}}: Shows the starting invasion of the Fuse.
* PungeonMaster: Numbuh 2, but what else is new?
* TeethClinchedTeamwork: Dexter grudgingly has to partner with Mandark.
* TookALevelInBadass: Mac and Bloo can fight, apparently.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Bloo (as usual).
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Numbuh 2 asks this to Blossom and Bubbles about Buttercup but Numbuh 5 cuts him off.
** Likewise, Numbuhs 1, 3, and 4 are absent when the treehouse is attacked, yet they show up in the game itself.
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: The group managed to stop the source of where the Fuse pods are coming from and start to celebrate...then Mojo crashes near them followed by Planet Fuse appearing over Earth. Uh-oh...

!! Main Game
* AbnormalAmmo: Mushroom spores to teddy bears, depending on the weapon.
* AllegedlyFreeGame: It was until April 19th, 2010, when it became just a Free Game.
* AntagonistInMourning: After giving Buttercup amnesia in a deadly fight, Mojo Jojo displays a... surprising amount of guilt.
* AntiPoopSocking: Upon gaining a certain amount of experience, both experience and money gained after that point is reduced by 50%, then dropped to 0%. It resets to 100% the following day. They've since removed the 0% feature, but it will still drop to 50%.
* BearsAreBadNews: [[CrazyAwesome Did we mention the bears wield a jackhammer for an arm?]]
* {{BFS}}: The Rex Nano has a skill literally called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Big Freakin' Sword"]].
* ChildSoldiers: The KND, Urban Rangers, Powerpuff Girls and, of course, the players.
** Now they're teenagers, though that doesn't make it much better. [[WildMassGuessing Did they raise the age limit to 18?]] There WAS that plot point in Codename: Kids Next Door about some KND members staying in the KND after turning into teens...
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Billy, who actually helps out A LOT in the final stretch of the game.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The whole game is slightly darker than the cartoons it's based off of, or at least those that weren't already dark.
** Musical example: In the CGI intro that shows up when you first access the site, a portion of an instrumental version of Thursday's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyfZ5bmx7Ng "Jet Black New Year"]] plays in the latter half. In the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHnaNhjM-as original version]], the first half had a portion of an instrumental of {{Mastodon}}'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11eis4XVfVE "Crystal Skull"]].
** LighterAndSofter: They advertise this game as "Warcraft-Lite done right".
* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: All it costs you is half the stamina of your current Nanos and cancels any benefits you might have had active (gumballs). [[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy It helps that Death is a character from one of the shows]].
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Buttercup]]
** And don't forget the brave sacrifice of [[spoiler:Runty]]. So what's for lunch?
* DramaPreservingHandicap: Megas has been trapped by fusion matter, hence why Coop can't just blow the crap out of Fuse's minions. Ben's Omnitrix also doesn't work due to interference. The rest can be chalked up to simple GameplayAndStorySegregation.
* DuelingGames: Sorta. Considering that Cartoon Network is rivals with {{Nickelodeon}}, compare the plot of this game to that of the fourth ''NicktoonsUnite'' game, ''Globs of Doom'' (which was released three months before ''[=FusionFall=]''). The most significant difference is that while the ''NicktoonsUnite'' games are single player console affairs, [=FusionFall=] is an ongoing MMO. Nick doesn't have their own Nicktoons MMO...''yet''.
* EldritchAbomination: [[BigBad Lord Fuse]]. [[spoiler:Even more so when you find out he's the [[GeniusLoci literal mind]] of the living planet causing all this mess]].
* {{Fembot}}: Computress.
* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: Defeated Lord Fuse, but wondering why he's still around next raid? [[spoiler:Simple really. He's actually the physical avatar of the GeniusLoci of Planet Fusion, so while defeating him is severely annoying, he just regenerates.]]
* GiantPoofySleeves: Blossom
* {{Gonk}}: Eddy
* HeyItsThatVoice: Most, if not all, of the characters' original voice actors reprise their roles. A notable exception is the late Mako Iwamatsu (voice of [[SamuraiJack Aku]]), but his replacement would have you think he came back from the dead just to voice him again--yes, the impersonation is ''that'' good.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Any fan of the Kids Next Door knows that this trope is going to come into play at one point or another.
* MagicSkirt: The Powerpuff Girls wear them. There's also several versions girl characters can wear. True to the trope, they never go high enough for anything to be seen. Failing the trope, this only applies when the camera is straight. Aim it up and it no longer works. It also fails horribly when using a scooter-type vehicle, as the seated position of a character causes the skirt to be oriented vertically. However, all that's there is a blackened waist area, as if they were trying to make shorts but just got lazy and painted the skin.
** In one of the later updates, you can see shorts under some of the shorter skirts if you aim the camera ''juuuust'' right.
* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover
* MisplacedWildlife: In a way. In the future, Eduardo hangs out in the cul-de-sac, and Samurai Jack hangs out in the junkyard.
** It may be to play up the crossover element and it's not unusual to see characters from several shows hanging out in one location, but [[TheLifeAndTimesOfJuniperLee Juniper Lee]] is in the middle of [[CourageTheCowardlyDog Nowhere]] while Grim holds court in her hometown of Orchid Bay.
** Due to the lack of Camp Lazlo characters, others fill the void (e.g, [[CodenameKidsNextDoor the Toiletnator]] and [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy May]] hang out in Camp Kidney, [[TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack Flapjack]] is in Leaky Lake, and [[WesternAnimation/{{Ben10}} Gwen]] can be found on Pimpleback Mountain).
* MythologyGag: Any fan of the shows the game represents will see at least five of these for each series.
* NoExportForYou: The game has been "coming soon" to parts of Asia and the South Pacific for a ''looooonnnnng'' time.
* OffModel: The Nanos, intended to have the cartoonish look that most of their NPC counterparts lost.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: Debatable. Compare [[http://flapjack.wikia.com/wiki/File:Flapjack.jpg Flapjack]] in his original cartoon to [[http://fusionfall.wikia.com/wiki/File:Flapjack.png Flapjack]] here.
* RuleOfCool: The only reason Samurai Jack is within walking distance of Megas XLR in the Future Zone.
* ShoutOut: The game's unique naming system opens up quite literally [[strike: a universe]] ''several'' universes brim full of possibilities in regards to this trope, such as [[VideoGame/DragonFable Xan]] [[AxeCrazy Fireant]].
** One of the NPC characters is named after the creator of ThePowerpuffGirls and FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends
** Before the game went to free to play, players were free to choose their own names, provided that they passed inspection. More obvious references to other media wouldn't make it through, but if what you named your character after was obscure enough (or obscure enough to whoever was in charge of approving your name), you were set. It's also an easy way to indicate characters that were made before the FreeToPlay switch.
* StarfishAliens: They're all made of Fusion Matter, which is basically a green ooze that merges with whatever it doesn't destroy to make monsters, and some of them are warped clones of NPC's. Oh, and they exist to [[PlanetEater help their homeworld eat planets]].
* [[PlotRelevantAgeUp Story Relevant Age Up]]: Dexter, the Powerpuff Girls, and the members of Sector V are in their (pre)teen years.
* TemporalParadox: The nanos were created with information the player (if they joined before early 2011) brought back from a BadFuture, which no longer exists because everyone was better able to fight Fuse now... because of that technology from a time that doesn't exist anymore.
* TimeyWimeyBall: Until February 2011, the opening segment took place in a post-apocalyptic future the player was sent to due to a Deedee-induced time travel accident. Now the opening is just basic training and the TimeyWimeyBall seems to have been removed--except there are still references to the Nano tech coming from the future. And CN's offical in-universe reason for the new intro segment? Due to the heroes' efforts, that future no longer exists.
* WarpWhistle: Flying Monkeys, courtesy of Mojo Jojo, and the KND's S.C.A.M.P.E.R. (which warps you between regions instead of just areas within the same region).
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally, Ben was going to be in his child form, but it was replaced with his 15-16 year old incarnation before release. However, Kid!Ben is slated to be a Nano in the future.
** Vilgax was also to be based on his original counterpart, but they changed it to his ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Alien Force]]'' counterpart. Like with Ben, though, Vilgax's nano still bears resemblance to his original look.
** The Null Void Ship, Chowder's mouth, Vilgax's ship, Ice King's Castle, the zoo from Generator Rex, and Mount Neverest were planned to be level 37+ areas originally.
* WhatDoesThisButtonDo: The mistress of this trope, Dee Dee, sent you into the future because of this in the old tutorial.
* XMeetsY: VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft meets Creator/CartoonNetwork meets ''VideoGame/EarthBound''.
** Or possibly Creator/CartoonNetwork meets ToontownOnline meets ''{{Persona 4}}''.
** Maybe KingdomHearts switches Disney for Cartoon Network?
* ZettaiRyouiki: All three Powerpuff Girls.

!! Fusionfall Heroes

* FollowTheLeader: Of Diablo.
* SynchronousEpisodes: Takes place at the same time as the original game, showcasing what the main cartoons were doing during the battle.

** Before the game went to free to play, players were free to choose their own names, provided that they passed inspection.
