->''Legend tells about humanoid machines called "Vocaloids" that serve as the messengers of the gods, along with being the voices of the past, future and present. [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot They are combinations of hyper-advanced artificial intelligence and the ability to feel and create emotion]], destined to fight for justice. They serve as the saviors of the planet and over the course of history, [[EvilEmpire they have endlessly fended off the forces of the]] [[StarlitHeroics Deathmoon Family and the Apocalytes]] [[EvilEmpire , virulent evils that corrupt all that tries to oppose them.]] As loyal vanguards of the Lunardream Family, the rulers of heaven themselves, there are many myths of Vocaloid heroes in the span of history... In today's world, [[CityOfAdventure the Crypton Province]] exists as a haven for the Vocaloids, who double as both sensational pop-stars and [[ComesGreatResponsibility guardians of the city, protecting it from harm.]] However, there are two Vocaloid girls in particular whose stories have yet to unfold, linked together with the legendary heroines...''
-->--'''Intro'''

What happens when you smush together several different worlds [[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover consisting of Vocaloid, The Legend Of Zelda, Metroid, Final Fantasy and a bunch others into one, unified setting?]] You get Legend of the Rising Star, a crossover fanfiction made by Tropers/XerizeroRe9010 taking place in the same universe as his original fiction series, StarlitHeroics.

It consists of the adventures had by the central characters (the Vocaloids) and the new companions they meet on the way. It starts off nice and comfy, focusing on their [[WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld semi-peaceful]] lives at [[AdventureGuild Shining Advent]], [[PartTimeHero balancing between fighting monsters and crime]] to making music videos, and so on. However, everything steadily becomes [[DarkerAndEdgier worse]] with the presence of a new enemy. They are known as [[OriginalGeneration the Apocalytes]], a [[TheEmpire large organization of demons and other beings]] who have unified themselves for one purpose-- [[ApocalypseHow the destruction of everything.]] Said enemy is also an old foe of the Vocaloids back when both Families were on good terms with each other, so they're back for revenge on top of that.

Pandora, Vocalis and Ranthael (the three rulers of the Lunardream Family), being aware of this, made sure that they prepare for the uprising of the Apocalytes by [[BadassCrew gathering all of the heroes needed for this]]. There's also eight [[MacGuffin Macguffins]] known as the Silence Gems, made to serve as the ultimate weapon against the Apocalytes back in the day [[spoiler: and serve as the key to unlock their secret lair, the Tenebris Rosa Arcem]], leading both sides to go on a massive FetchQuest to get them.

However, [[Characters/LegendOfTheRisingStarFFCouncil as time goes on]], [[Characters/LegendOfTheRisingStarCombineHierarchy it becomes evident that the Apocalytes]] [[Characters/LegendOfTheRisingStarOverlordRegime are only one of their many worries.]]

Due to taking place in the same universe, it's also a non-canon sequel to Starlit Heroics, taking 2-3 years after everything that happened. It features many aspects from its parent series which overlaps into the other series that are used, such the eight elements system and so on.
----
!!Tropes include:

* {{Abstract Scale}}: Like its parent series, except taken up quite a bit.
* AbsoluteCleavage: A small number of female characters have this. [[VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}} Valentine]] and [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Amentia]] are especially prominent, though.
* AdventureGuild: Shining Advent is pretty much this.
* AlternateUniverseFic: Not for anything related to StarlitHeroics, but instead for each franchise brought up into the mix.
* ArtShift: Compare [[VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}} Peacock]] and [[OriginalGeneration Monochroma]] to any other character. There's also the Dream Realm, which also doubles as ChaosArchitecture.
* AcidTripDimension: The Dream Realm.
* AnyoneCanDie: Was there any doubt?
* AllInTheManual: [[http://starlitheroesworld.wikia.com/ The same wiki for Starlit Heroics is used for Legend of the Rising Star.]]
* ActionGirl: Almost every female character.
* [[spoiler: AfterTheEnd: Oh, where do we begin? The eight main Vocaloids are murdered and then assimilated into the Apocalyte ranks, the world is ravaged and governed by the demonic hordes, and all the heroes are separated. Yet even with this in mind, they still attempt to join together and have another go at the Apocalytes-- except this time doing it ''right.'']]
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: Commonplace. [[spoiler: [[TheHeartless In a dark turn, though, this also applies to becoming an Apocalyean.]]]]
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: Many things, but specifically [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant Action 52]]-- he represents everything that can go wrong in video games and is the messenger of the Apocalyte leaders.
* AntiHero: Quite a few-
** Type II: Bulleta (after development), Peacock (after development), Valentine and Travis Touchdown, etc.
** Type III: Gordon Freeman (pre-development)
** Type IV: Bulleta (pre-development), Peacock (pre-development)
* AntiVillain: Monochroma, Palopon, Jetzsau, [[VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}} Aeon]], Alumbra the Life Eater, Nero Potenza, etc.
* AxCrazy: A ''lot'' of characters. But [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Bulleta]] takes the cake-- best part is that [[AntiHero she's one of the good guys.]]
* AuthorAppeal: Just as prominent as in the parent series, if not more so, considering this gives him more freedom to experiment with, well, pretty much anything.
* AerithAndBob: Peacock and Cecil. Bulleta and Travis-- The list goes on.
* ArtifactOfDoom: [[VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}} The Skull Heart.]] There's also the Red Rose used by [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/YumeNikki Madotsuki]]]], for a minor example.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Quite a bit of enemies are huge.
* {{Badass}}: Pretty much the whole cast.
** BadassInANiceSuit: Daniel, Miku [[spoiler: after gaining her Rising Star powers]], Lelus, etc.
** BadassNormal: Each person from a different franchise that didn't become godly powerful throughout the course of their game / show (ie. [[HalfLife Gordon Freeman]], [[NoMoreHeroes Travis Touchdown]], [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Bulleta]] and so on). This was remedied with the Tsuki items, though.
** BadassAbnormal: Said characters that get their Tsuki item upgrade. Although everyone else practically fits into this category.
** TookALevelInBadass: 75 percent of the entire cast is made up of characters who would be normally be overpowered in the world of Starlit Heroics. [[WorldOfBadass They adapted to the situation.]]
** WorldOfBadass: Like before, except the playing board is bigger now.
** BadassFurry: Every animal humanoid, but especially [[OriginalGeneration Augustus]] and [[VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}} Ms. Fortune.]]
** BadassCrew: Every organized group in the story, to say the least.
* BagOfSpilling: [[spoiler: The main Vocaloids were formerly very powerful before they went to sleep-- their powers got dormant as time passed.]] In the battle between Daniel and Amentia, as a last ditch effort, she sealed his powers and [[BadassAdorable reduced him to a small kid.]]
** In a villain's case, [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]] is revived from his demise, but since he lost the power of the Espers ''and'' the Warring Triad, he's reduced to basically nothing. He plans to fix this with the Life Eater, though.]]
* BigBoosHaunt: Like in its parent series, cemeteries are always crawling with zombies or ghosts, no matter what time of day it is. For a prominent example, there's the Graveyard Palace, which is absolutely colossal in that it's a wasteland populated with nothing but gravestones. At the end, there's a mansion filled with ''vampires.''
** There's also the first part of the Trial of the Earth Silence Gem - The Terra Catacombs, specifically. And it's located ''below'' the CityOfAdventure that serves as the hub for the heroes... [[FridgeHorror Sweet lord]].
* BigBadEnsemble:
** [[spoiler: [[OriginalGeneration Demedis]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]], [[{{Disgaea}} Baal]] and [[HalfLife the Combine Emperor, Prometheus.]]]]
* BigDamnHeroes: A lot.
* {{BFG}}: [[{{Vocaloid}} Gumi's]] Megpoid Launcher, for one. There's also the giant punt gun that she has.
* {{BFS}}: There's a lot. Special mention goes to Meiko's Balmung dragon slayer broadsword, which is just as wide if not bigger than her. There's also Ultima Weapon XV's sword forms-- both of them.
* BoomHeadshot
* BloodKnight: Quite a bit of characters. Even one of the main characters (i.e Meiko) is defined by this.
* BystanderSyndrome: Averted, for the most part. One prominent example - Shining Advent was founded by Lelus and Attemi for the very reason of protecting Crypton Province because they felt like they could make a difference.
* CastOfSnowflakes: [[{{Crossover}} Each character picked]] and [[OriginalGeneration each character made specifically for the story]] can all be identified from each other.
* {{Continuation}}: [[StarlitHeroics Several years later]], a bunch of new characters and villains, new Macguffins, what else is to be expected?
* CanonImmigrant: Some ideas and even the entire Apocalyte backstory was melded with the actual canon of StarlitHeroics, [[CaptainObvious sans Vocaloids and everything else copyrighted, of course.]]
* CuteMonsterGirl: A lot. In the case of not-so-cute, there's [[VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}} Double]] and a few others.
* ChainsawGood: Urotsuki wields a chainsaw ''sword'', no less.
* CharacterTitle: [[spoiler: Rising Star is Miku's hero form from the past-- and Miku's the main character, so it all fits.]]
* DreamPeople: Literally-- [[spoiler: Madotsuki and Urotsuki]], due to their new powers, are able to materialize the beings from their dreams into reality.
* DreamWorld: Again, the Dream Realm.
* DualWielding: Lily and Bulleta [[GunsAkimbo eventually get two handguns]]. There's also Peacock, who gets a golden revolver to counteract her silver one.
* EldritchAbomination: Including the standard fare for the series, [[HumanoidAbomination there's every single Apocalyte, including the less threatening ones.]]
* ElementalPowers: The whole story, [[StarlitHeroics like its parent series]], is governed by eight elements, with special subcategories/techniques--
** [[color:grey:Null]] - NonElemental and PureEnergy. Also mixed in with some Sound properties. Subcatergories consist of having [[TheRedMage the possibility to being able to control the other elements]] (Pathway) and is responsible for [[BecomeYourWeapon letting people mix with the weapon]] [[EmpathicWeapon they have the most sentimental value to.]] (Weapon Synthesis)
** [[color:yellow:Li]][[color:gray:ght]] - HolyHandGrenade, ThePowerOfTheSun and HardLight respectiveably. Subcatergories consist of being able to purge evil spirits / corruption ([[ExactlyAsItSaysOnTheTin Purification]]) and resistance to possession or any other sort of control over your body. (Clarity)
** [[color:black:Da]][[color:red:rk]] - ThePowerOfDarkness, CastingAShadow and Necromancy, specifically. Subcategories consist of being [[AttackItsWeakPoint able to see enemy weak points]] (Spiral) and being able to see the enviroment around you when vision can't do the job. (Presence)
** [[color:lavender:Lu]][[color:skyblue:na]] - {{Lunacy}} and HardLight (except purple), and is described as the combination of Light and Dark. Subcategories consist of [[TimeMaster control over time]], [[ForceField barriers]] and [[HealingHands healing,]] along with being [[DetachmentCombat able to remove your body parts and control them]] ([[AlliterativeName Limb Liberation]]) and [[PeoplePuppets control other people through puppetry]] (Dead Man's Dance)
** [[color:green:Earth]] - DishingOutDirt and GreenThumb at the same time. Its subcategories consists of the [[GameBreaker most]] [[IncrediblyLamePun broken]] skill out of all the elements, which is using raw Earth power to break through enemy defenses (Breaker) and using Earth power to boost your own endurancy. (Defender)
** [[color:orange:Fla]][[color:orange:me]] - PlayingWithFire. Its subcategories consist of being able to touch or even dive into (in the case of lava) superheated sources without any negative effects (Infinite Degree) and being able to make your fire stronger, as shown by [[TechnicolorFire its ascendance into hotter shades of colors.]] (Pyrokinetics)
** [[color:blue:Fro]][[color:skyblue:st]] - AnIcePerson and MakingASplash respectiveably, due to it mixing together Ice and Water. Subcategories consist of being able to breathe underwater (Aquatics) and being able to turn water into ice and vice-versa. (Hydro-Puppetry)
** [[color:purple:Clo]][[color:yellow:ud]] - BlowYouAway and ShockAndAwe, thanks to it being a mixture of [[FridgeBrilliance Wind and Lightning.]] Subcategories consist of being able to fly (Aviary), using your body as a living energy source (Generator), and being able to move really fast (Wind Slicer).
* ExoticEyeDesigns: Valentine's cross-shaped irises. There's also characters turned into the Skullgirl who gain skull-shaped irises. There's also [[{{Vocaloid}} Tone Rion]], who has heart shaped irises.
* EyeScream: Action52 and [[{{Skullgirls}} Double]] alike have [[NightmareFuel eyes embedded on their bodies, along with several other things that are just wrong.]]
* EyesAlwaysShut: Averted-- [[spoiler: Madotsuki]] and Urotsuki have been shown to [[RedEyesTakeWarning having red eyes]].
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: Action 52 and Double. [[spoiler: The Medamaude effect for Madotsuki turns her into a hunchback creature with a hand replacing her head with an eye inside the palm.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithRainbows: The Rainbow effect Urotsuki has.
* FountainOfYouth: Amentia's [[LimitBreak Archangel Pulse]] not only removes Daniel's powers, but she reverts him into a kid.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Due to the length of the series (as planned by the creator), this will inevitably happen.
* LocalHangout / GoodGuyBar: The Stella Citadel, beside being the place where everyone works, is also where everyone hangs out in the downtime between missions and fighting.
* MeleeATrois: An especially impressive list of combatants as well-- [[{{Vocaloid}} S]][[VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}} h]][[VideoGame/{{Yume2kki}} i]][[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda n]][[{{Metroid}} i]][[NoMoreHeroes n]][[VideoGame/{{Boktai}} g]] [[SuperMarioBros A]][[{{Castlevania}} d]][[Franchise/BlackRockShooter v]][[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV e]][[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} n]][[HalfLife t]] / [[StarlitHeroics The Lunardream Family]] vs [[OriginalGeneration the Apoca]][[BigBad lytes]] vs [[Franchise/FinalFantasy The Council of Eden]] vs [[{{Disgaea}} TheOverlordRegime]] and the [[HalfLife Combine]] [[{{Metroid}} Empire]] for a general example.
** Due to the sheer variety of characters present, it's natural for this trope to come up should there be multiple sides involved in a fight.
* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: [[StarlitHeroics Take the creator's original series]], add {{Vocaloid}} in there, and arrange [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters its entire universe to contain as many video game franchises (and two or more anime series) as possible]], and you'd get Legend of the Rising Star in a nutshell.
** WordOfGod confirms that the creator chose the specific franchises he did to help build a fuller world and offer a more complete experience.
* PrecursorHeroes: Certain members of the Twelve Holy Disciples had a counterpart back in the first Apocalyean War, such as the avian warrior for [[{{Skullgirls}} Peacock]] and the Nightmare Sealer line of heroes for [[VideoGame/{{Yume2kki}} Urotsuki]]. [[spoiler: Subverted with the main eight Vocaloids, who are described to be the representatives for the Vocaloid heroes for the past but are actually the same person with amnesia and have suffered a forced BagOfSpilling.]]
* PredecessorVillain: Alternatively, the same applies to some Apocalytes - [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/YumeNikki Madotsuki]]]] is the newest member for the infamous Night Weaver line of villains who served to fight against the Nightmare Sealers. [[spoiler: Also, Monochroma is destined to become the new Skullgirl after Marie.]]
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Daniel.
* RecurringElement: No matter how many new franchises with their own rules are thrown in, they will all get adapted to the Starlit Heroics universe in one way or another. The elements system is a prominent example, as it applies to every single character that appears, regardless of what they belonged to previously.
* ShoutOut: An [[ShoutOut/LegendOfTheRisingStar entire page]], no less.
* [[spoiler: TimeSkip: ''Two entire years'' pass AfterTheEnd.]]
* TheSyndicate: [[spoiler: The Council of Eden. They have control over all of Luba Linn, and nobody is any the wiser.]]
* ATasteOfPower: Daniel, TheHero of StarlitHeroics, [[LightningBruiser was stronger than practically everyone on the good guys side]] at the beginning of Legend of the Rising Star. [[EarlyBirdCameo This was because he turned into Ranthael and restored all of his latent powers by now, making him an unstoppable force of nature.]] However, in the battle between him and the Queen of th Apocalytes, Amentia, [[BagOfSpilling she dropped him back down by quite a bit]], using an attack called [[LimitBreak Archangel Pulse]] to do the deed. He was reduced to a kid and his former powers [[spoiler: as a god]] have been sealed, making him less of a threat to the villains.
** A similar case happens to [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Madoka Kaname]], who was just as powerful as Daniel. The Apocalytes [[BagOfSpilling quickly solve that problem]].
* XMeetsY: Concept-wise, KingdomHearts meets StarlitHeroics meets SoulEatefr.
** Content-wise, {{Vocaloid}} meets StarlitHeroics while having [[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover a bunch of video game franchises in the same universe it takes place in.]]

* MeleeATrois: An especially impressive list of combatants as well-- [[{{Vocaloid}} S]][[VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}} h]][[VideoGame/{{Yume2kki}} i]][[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda n]][[{{Metroid}} i]][[NoMoreHeroes n]][[VideoGame/{{Boktai}} g]] [[SuperMarioBros A]][[{{Castlevania}} d]][[Franchise/BlackRockShooter v]][[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV e]][[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} n]][[HalfLife t]] / [[StarlitHeroics The Lunardream Family]] vs [[OriginalGeneration the Apoca]][[BigBad lytes]] vs [[Franchise/FinalFantasy The Council of Eden]] vs [[{{Disgaea}} TheOverlordRegime]] and the [[HalfLife Combine]] [[{{Metroid}} Empire]] for a general example.
** Due to the sheer variety of characters present, it's natural for this trope to come up should there be multiple sides involved in a fight.
* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: [[StarlitHeroics Take the creator's original series]], add {{Vocaloid}} in there, and arrange [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters its entire universe to contain as many video game franchises (and two or more anime series) as possible]], and you'd get Legend of the Rising Star in a nutshell.
** WordOfGod confirms that the creator chose the specific franchises he did to help build a fuller world and offer a more complete experience.
* PrecursorHeroes: Certain members of the Twelve Holy Disciples had a counterpart back in the first Apocalyean War, such as the avian warrior for [[{{Skullgirls}} Peacock]] and the Nightmare Sealer line of heroes for [[VideoGame/{{Yume2kki}} Urotsuki]]. [[spoiler: Subverted with the main eight Vocaloids, who are described to be the representatives for the Vocaloid heroes for the past but are actually the same person with amnesia and have suffered a forced BagOfSpilling.]]
* PredecessorVillain: Alternatively, the same applies to some Apocalytes - [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/YumeNikki Madotsuki]]]] is the newest member for the infamous Night Weaver line of villains who served to fight against the Nightmare Sealers. [[spoiler: Also, Monochroma is destined to become the new Skullgirl after Marie.]]
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Daniel.
* RecurringElement: No matter how many new franchises with their own rules are thrown in, they will all get adapted to the Starlit Heroics universe in one way or another. The elements system is a prominent example, as it applies to every single character that appears, regardless of what they belonged to previously.
* ShoutOut: An [[ShoutOut/LegendOfTheRisingStar entire page]], no less.
* [[spoiler: TimeSkip: ''Two entire years'' pass AfterTheEnd.]]
* TheSyndicate: [[spoiler: The Council of Eden. They have control over all of Luba Linn, and nobody is any the wiser.]]
* ATasteOfPower: Daniel, TheHero of StarlitHeroics, [[LightningBruiser was stronger than practically everyone on the good guys side]] at the beginning of Legend of the Rising Star. [[EarlyBirdCameo This was because he turned into Ranthael and restored all of his latent powers by now, making him an unstoppable force of nature.]] However, in the battle between him and the Queen of th Apocalytes, Amentia, [[BagOfSpilling she dropped him back down by quite a bit]], using an attack called [[LimitBreak Archangel Pulse]] to do the deed. He was reduced to a kid and his former powers [[spoiler: as a god]] have been sealed, making him less of a threat to the villains.
** A similar case happens to [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Madoka Kaname]], who was just as powerful as Daniel. The Apocalytes [[BagOfSpilling quickly solve that problem]].
* XMeetsY: Concept-wise, KingdomHearts meets StarlitHeroics meets SoulEatefr.
** Content-wise, {{Vocaloid}} meets StarlitHeroics while having [[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover a bunch of video game franchises in the same universe it takes place in.]]

It consists of the adventures had by the central characters (the Vocaloids) and the new companions they meet on the way. It starts off nice and comfy, focusing on their [[WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld semi-peaceful]] lives at [[AdventureGuild Shining Advent]], [[PartTimeHero balancing between fighting monsters and crime]] to making music videos, and so on. However, everything steadily becomes [[DarkerAndEdgier worse]] with the presence of a new enemy. They are known as [[OriginalGeneration the Apocalytes]], a [[TheEmpire large organization of demons and other beings]] who have unified themselves for one purpose-- [[ApocalypseHow the destruction of anything and everything.]] Said enemy is also an old foe of the Vocaloids back when both Families were on good terms with each other, so they're back for revenge on top of that.
