!!SMNK
--> Now that I decided to remake this as a VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends custom champion series, the story is wiped out, with characters made to fit more into the universe. The acronym and most characters' names changed to no longer be all Japanese.
* FunWithAcronyms: SMNK can mean anything now. Like [[TakeThatMe Super-Meaningless Nublord]] [[XtremeKoolLetterz Kustom]] ''[champion series]''.
* RetCon: Almost everything has been retconned but the roles. Even the names have drastically changed.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: Many examples as I changed the commands for my Sol and Ky clones, but also for the originals and other characters.
** Ky's ''[[{{Shoryuken}} Vapor Thrust]]'' has to be executed inversely to the normal one. Conversely, Robo-Ky inverted his ''Stun Edge'''s motion. In reaction to input overlaps, the change of directions means that Ky and Robo-Ky have opposite motions for similar specials.
** Original Sol, despite returning to Sol's old moveset, doesn't use qcf+S/H as a command for ''Gun Flame'', staying at present Sol's qcf+P (to prevent overlap with ''Volcanic Viper''). Instead, the ''Gun Flame'' projectile's speed is determined by whether or not you hold P when the projectile comes out.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: K-Lambda. Literally, his skin is darkish-purple-black-something. And the character splash is still Ky's.

* InvulnerableAttack: Here and there, especially with the already-existent. It's almost the main schtick of Clone Ky's normal movelists because all his specials are invulnerable until recovery. Once his gimmicks are figured out, he's easy to dispatch though.

* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: Musou-Ky. His dash pops him into the air ala I-No. His standing kick moves him forward for the attack, and his forward hard slash leaps. His crouching kick slides forward, his sweep is his crouching slash rather than crouching dust, his crouching hard slash is a slow attack in the vein of a usual forward hard slash and his crouching dust doesn't hit, instead setting an anti-projectile field that replenishes Musou-Ky's meter a tiny bit if he's inside. In general, he only has three actual low hits in his entire moveset and tons of easy overheads, so unlike common play against other characters, you will have to more commonly block high than low against him.

*** K-Lambda comes back, but with his number of special moves and health dropped into the ground to borderline Chipp levels. It also nerfed his air command grab as he no longer regains control until hitting the ground (patching an infinite combo made solely of air grabs and air dashes in case he needed to reposition himself, since on top of granting a wallbounce, hitting the air grab resetted his air options). His counter special also no longer counters everything from the first frame. The only real buff he gained to compensate is that his ''Starpower'' special has an easier command.

*** Patch 1.7 replaced the patch 1.6 buffs. He gained Slayer's teleport dashes, a better hit box and a ground bounce on his ''Enhanced Needle Spike''. His air Hard Slash had double untech time on knockdown. His Stun Edges projectile speeds were exaggerated to fit their specific purposes better. EX Mode also got three new attacks, two being [[UnblockableAttack unblockables]] and the last being an overhead combo filler.

* SomeDexterityRequired: Most aspects are denied. Only Sol and Musou-Ky have [[CriticalHit clean hits]] that need some aiming, and even then it's only Sol's ''Sidewinder'', and ''Fafnir'' as well as Musou-Ky's copypaste of the first: Musou-Ky otherwise gets clean hits from doing moves at point-blank range.
* SoundtrackDissonance: ZigZagged: My MUGEN sports music from VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth, but I also acquired the KOF '97 and '98 soundtracks. But ultimately I got the VideoGame/GuiltyGear soundtrack which averts the trope. There are even enough non-{{Leitmotif}} tracks for my custom characters to get their themes from.

''Denju'' is a slower ''Gun Flame'' that stays out for a shorter time.\\
''Jokyougaeshi'' is a weaker Guard Cancel than any of Baiken's own, with its 14 frames of startup, no invincibility and horrendous recovery.\\
''Mou ii yagaru!'' is ''Rock It!'', except the followups are Force Breaks, meaning he needs 50% meter to do what Order-Sol could do with an easier-to-get full Charge meter.\\
''Juuden'' is ''Action Charge'', except slower and done on its own, not after specials. Instead of giving 80% of a charge level, it gives Musou-Ky a meager 15% meter. Only later did Musou-Ky gain the ability to cancel specials into it. Patch 2.0.1 changed the special cancel into a cancel system similar to ''Action Charge''.\\
''Mudo'', a dash-through move, is simply worse than the normal Musou-Ky dash it replaces as its timing no longer makes for ambiguous cross-unders and it has 14 very visible and punishable recovery frames. Until Patch 2.0.1, it had nothing to make due for it, but now it has an invulnerable followup (though it can be thrown).\\
''3.16 Dengekijuu'' is a slower, weaker ''Blockhead Buster''.\\
''Uwadanken Keishiki'', his uppercut, was nerfed from its original infinite material status to being barely usable since it has invincibility shorter than its startup, it functions similarly to Sol's ''Volcanic Viper'', without its first hit and with pitiful horizontal range.\\
''Kiri'' has been repurposed, but now it's a static version of ''Kongougama'' that won't do much even with invincibility to throws and on his upper body because of its horrid range.\\
''Arekuruu'' is a nerfed ''Bandit Revolver Prototype'' from Order Sol.\\
''Hebigami'' is harder to use in EX Mode, its command being more complicated and it's only usable from the ground unless he's in Gold Mode. And EX Musou-Ky cannot hit clean.\\
''Rando Rakudo'' is a mixed bag from both its old iterations, one of which was a slidekick and the other of which was a ''Gun Blaze'' carbon copy. This one has a pillar consistently attached to him except its vertical range is bad and horizontally-speaking it has negative priority.

*** Patch 1.10.1 gutted the speed of Musou-Ky's dash and his running grab. He can no longer cancel from his dash immediately into an attack, which stops any possibility of a Musou-Ky Dustloop that he could do by dashing and instantly using his air dust so he could recover faster. His running grab lost 30% of its running speed. Also, his double projectile changed since the first projectile is static, nerfing Musou-Ky's damage from afar.

*** Patch 2.0.1 will patch out a misbehaviour of Original Sol which caused him to keep the Dustloop. Nouwa-Sol gets different modes, and the AC Mode swaps out Forward Kick and Crouching Slash attacks for new ones that are less good at what the old ones did (though the Crouching Slash gets its hitbox nerfed too). Forward Punch once again becomes slower, and so does Standing Hard Slash (which also loses jump cancel). Crouching Hard Slash also has extra recovery. Jumping Kick lost active frames for more recovery, and Jumping Slash and Jumping Dust are overall slower. Musou-Ky's AC mode also swaps out his grounded running grab and airborne slash combo for a slow five-hit special.

** Gold Musou-Ky's specials and supers hit cleanly all the time if possible, including some that couldn't hit cleanly normally. This doesn't apply to EX Mode since he cannot clean hit in EX Mode, even if Gold; but EX Mode gets its fair share of benefits, such as a faster hit version of his dash special, a duper-fast ''Hebigami'', and other silly gimmicks.

** Clone Ky is a mild example, but he has high resistance and borrows invincible and unblockable attacks from Clone Zero. Gold Clone Ky regenerates life at '''double the rate of Gold Sol''', and his unblockable specials come out in around around 20 frames rather than 45, making his pressure game much more deadly since you are much more likely to get caught in unblockable tech-into-my-invulnerable-grab trap setups.
** Ra-Ky's normals have electric visual effects that give them superior range, up to a near-fullscreen far slash. His air dust lays down a trap similar to Ky's Force Break trap, a far better variation (plus it's airdash-cancellable). He has many dodgy hitboxes on his specials, many of which already have periods of invulnerability. He has unique special versions of ''Charged Stun Edge'' (which comes out faster than Ky's and deals 5 hits) and ''Sacred Edge'' (which is normally a super for Ky, Ra-Ky's version hits only once instead of 5 times but deals all the accumulated damage in that one hit, which is far more damaging on hit, but less beneficial on block). Plus, he uses a copycat of the ''Kaiser Wave'' from Rugal himself, and he can fire it fast like the 2002 version (aka it's out and fullscreen in less than 10 frames). Including the "glitches" (intentionally), except that the perma-lock is done when the fireball is fired point-blank with at least the second version. To add insult to injury, he can use it midair and FRC either version of the move. While in AC Mode, he also can use Ky's ''Lightning Strike'' as a homing UnblockableAttack. His supers also boast absurdly long invincibility frames and quickly hit fullscreen.\\

To add insult to injury, he can use it midair and FRC either version of the move. While in AC Mode, he also can use Ky's ''Lightning Strike'' as a homing UnblockableAttack. His supers also boast absurdly long invincibility frames and quickly hit fullscreen.\\

[[folder:Notes about FanFic/UnprecedentedCatastrophe: Is the main character a Gappy Stu?]]
'''''WARNING: Spoilers ahead!''''' I proceed accordingly to the [[Analysis/DiamondInTheRough DitR Analysis]] page.
!!The Notes:
!!!The Character:
* He is an AuthorAvatar, despite the fact that he remembers very little, his ethnicity is still French.
* He isn't well-versed in Japanese mythology, except of course the knowledge that he got from ''Perfect Memento in Strict Sense''.
* He arrives empty-handed. He gets hosted by Reimu for two weeks, and then he dies.
* He has a lot of different emotions, the only one mentioned not to appear is cocky since he is new.
* He doesn't worry about his life back home because he doesn't remember it.
* Just like me, he is single, virgin, and bad with girls.
* He only tries violence once before dying, and it doesn't even get here.
* He can be shallow at times, but doesn't base anything on looks, weapons or rank; he just offhandedly respects everyone but Nouwa.
* He likes swords, but only had sword training with Youmu. He makes a sword of lightning once, as symbolism for a ranged attack.
* He becomes a youkai, when he dies and his ghost lingers.
* The only thing akin to an avatar he gained is a spirit born of his desire for death, wishing to kill him.
* He is not motion sick easily, but never goes at high heights to fly. One of his attempts at flight pre-death even fails resulting in injury.
!!!The Gapping:
* He was in the Hakurei Shrine when he was absorbed in a fluctuation of the Hakurei Barrier, and pulled away from it by Yukari so that the barrier could be repaired. Obviously, he was not intact.
* Yukari's excuse for saving it was to avoid a breach in the Hakurei Barrier, as well as "training" to see what she could be able to pull out of inexistence.
* He encountered Yukari once or twice as she attempted to finish her task of managing the lost soul.
* The fic stars three other Gappies: Luke, who is an important secondary character and assists Reimu in resolving the incident, Dondeo, a man who holds a restaurant in the Human Village and was gapped before Luke. The third hasn't appeared yet.
* I fully acknowledge the character as a Gappy.
!!!The Journey:
* The first thing he does is wander into the Forest of Magic. Because he is scared of Kanako. Despite being barely recovered from his harmful "gapping".
* He begins the story injured. The injuries never get properly treated because they are barely visible and Reimu and Marisa were more worried about anchoring his soul to Gensokyo.
* He marvels at the sights once, when heading for the Scarlet Devil Mansion in the very beginning of Chapter 1. And he has trouble adjusting to the fact he's in a fantasy world. In about 1 month, he showed signs of adjustment as well as old habits that didn't die yet.
* Noone walks, he gets carried around to the Hakurei Shrine, and then learns to fly by himself. Exposition is made while stationary (read: at the Hakurei Shrine, while Reimu trains him).
* Reimu isn't ultra-nice, being aloof and at times borderline angry, Marisa doesn't say "ze" so much. Sanae assists in the training and he's a major {{Tsundere}} with an S in tsun to her.
* He needs a book for research and goes to the Scarlet Devil Mansion. First: he tries by himself. Second: the travel isn't harmless, even a trade of blows with Cirno breaks one of his arms. He doesn't borrow a book from Patchouli, instead having gotten the right to read any books without taking them, and she took a sip of his blood first. He drinks no tea at all. Flandre appears, and he is mostly responsible for the terror he experiences, thinking she's an OmnicidalManiac while she's being a CreepyChild whose idea of a game involves a Spell Card that burns him in several places.
* He can't go in the Human Village or Kourindou now because he's dead. The passage involving the Human Village is seen by Remilia's eyes, and as she visits zones "far too mundane for her", most buildings are wooden.
* The Gappy doesn't need inventions: he hasn't got time for spiffy things in his quest of mentality change and adaptation. Nitori of course doesn't have infinite resources as the Kappa face a more technologically-advanced enemy.
* He didn't visit Sanae while alive: she did at times during his training. And while she is jealous of Reimu's incident-solving record, she isn't a villain, instead being more of a friendly rival.
* The conflict begins way before he's met everyone, though the incident actually begins weeks after the first spark of conflict.
!!!The Incident:
* There are two simultaneous incidents: both throwbacks to PC-98 games. Of course, Mima and Yumemi are not AlwaysChaoticEvil.
* None is Gensokyo's "most destructive incident yet". In fact, Yumemi building too much is what sparks the incident resolvers towards destroying her things.
* Mima has nocturnal fairies, while Yumemi uses drones. The incident resolvers can beat those with ease.
* No conflict spreads all over Gensokyo (though Yumemi has a zone of influence between the Misty Lake and the foot of Youkai Mountain), the incident resolvers are not specifically hurried, but the destruction that occurs is described.
* Only the gappy is hesitating, the incident resolvers have plenty of time, and some characters even take seats as villains and pick fights for the lulz. The gappy even fails when he goes gung-ho by himself, disappearing twice through the story (first time being his death), and he won't stop the BigBad, Reimu will.
* '''You are spoilered: REIMU RESOLVES THE INCIDENT! ''NO EXCEPTIONS!''''': The hero is defeated, and still comatose as Reimu does the important fighting.
* He doesn't sacrifice himself because he is already dead. He is defeated normally and remains unconscious. He was afraid to die enough when bleeding to death in the Scarlet Devil Mansion.
!!!The Ending:
* Since he did not sacrifice himself, he just wakes up slightly injured but with the incident over.
* He did not make any lives better, but his.
* By that time, he hasn't sorted out his love life yet.
* He obviously remains in Gensokyo, or rather, his actual home would be the Netherworld.
* Yukari might gap someone in. Who the hell knows..?
* The outside world's fate without the main character is brushed but not extended upon, since Nouwa mentioned a killing spree of which all victims had a link to the gappy.
!!The Tropes:
!!!The Character:
* [[BlackHoleSue Black Hole Stu]]: Even though his arrival attracts the most bored individuals, the incident involves other people separatedly of him. Also, he plays little part in Chapter 4, and utterly vanishes out of the spotlight at the end of Chapter 8.
* DesignatedHero: He's in no way presented as heroic, rather being presented as crazy, odd and with warped morals.
* InstantExpert: Most of the training is done offscreen, and he succeeds, even though he's far from being expert in anything.
* MartyStu: So far, he seems to be the AntiSue type, as he's weak and unaccustomed to Gensokyo yet.
* MightyWhitey: Nope. So far, he sucks at danmaku and spouts off random Japanese, as well as being misunderstood due to GratuitousForeignLanguage abuse.
* TeenGenius: He's 22 [[TimeSkip (evidently more, but how much?)]], and he knows much about Gensokyo because he's an AuthorAvatar of someone who did read the guides before the "gapping".
!!!The Gapping:
* CallToAdventure: Averted. Ending up in Gensokyo was much more than he went to Japan for.
* OntologicalMystery: And he's horrified by it.
* WishFulfillment: For me, partly; though I differentiate from the character.
!!!The Journey:
* AbortedArc: Averted, but the KudzuPlot is unconcluded in all aspects.
* AnticlimaxBoss: Averted, every fight has been a HopelessBossFight.
* ArcFatigue: The fic is one single arc, even with the KudzuPlot.
* GenreShift: Averted: the fic is about the action and adventure. Nothing else.
* {{Infodump}}: The character read the guides, so he doesn't need it. Even though he only remembers part of it and sometimes acts TooDumbToLive.
* MagneticHero: Averted. He spends his time in different groups of people, and stays permanently with no one. He's picked up by Komachi when she goes investigate the incident, but she's the leader and he's the loose cannon.
* NarrativeFiligree: Sometimes, such as the description of Heaven.
* {{Padding}}: I try to avert it, most long paragraphs are descriptions or tell someone's thoughts.
* ProlongedPrologue: The prologue chapter is a little part of the fiction, but the incident is started at Chapter 6.
* RandomEventsPlot: Averted: most things happen for a reason.
* StrangledByTheRedString: Averted: the romance is for later. Nobody even knows who is his love interest, though he has behaved oddly around Komachi, and probably Youmu as [[LampshadeHanging she remarked to her]].
* ThoseTwoGuys: Averted: Marisa appears once with Reimu, but also [[WriteWhoYouKnow Luke]] and Remilia. And then she makes a FaceHeelTurn.
* WalkAndTalk: In fact, everyone flies, but some characters talk despite the speaking never consisting of {{Infodump}}. The main character knows several things about how Gensokyo works. It's assumed you do.
!!!The Incident:
* ApatheticCitizens: The youkai mostly don't care, nocturnal fairies are attracted by the artificial night, and the cast definitely doesn't stay in place.
* AssPull: None so far, I think.
* {{Chickification}}: Nobody. In fact, Komachi and Youmu leave the main character to fight Nouwa because ItsPersonal: they could beat her one-on-one with relative ease.
* CompleteMonster: Averted with Nouwa: she's an ''ikiryo'', a spirit that represents WishFulfillment. Since she has been made of rather obscure wishes (frustration, general anger, and suicidal urges), she rises up as an antagonist to erase the main character from existence, so she comes to an end with it.
* ComplexityAddiction: Averted: Nouwa is extremely straightforward. Her plan consists in:\\
1- Find a way to erase the main character from existence.\\
2- Use it to erase him.\\
3- [[CessationOfExistence Cease to be]] [[DeathSeeker as]] [[StepThreeProfit a result]].
* DeusExMachina: So far, one: when the main character receives a Spell Card out of nowhere during his fight against Nouwa. [[spoiler:It really was Sanae who "gave" him this card at his side by wishing for him to survive]].
* DistressBall: Unused, except for the main character yet.
* DyingLikeAnimals: Nobody other than the main character is dead.
* FauxActionGirl: Averted. Even though Nouwa's weaker than most canon characters, she is a threat to the main character, much more so than everybody else.
* GoOutWithASmile: The hero becomes a ghost because he didn't.
* HeroicSacrifice: Averted.
* OmnicidalManiac: Averted: the targets of Nouwa's ire were specific. The main character is the last.
* PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery: It is mentioned the hero did this by proxy: Yukari mentioned that Nouwa went on a killing spree in the Outside World, as it was one of the wishes that created her.
* ShadowArchetype: Nouwa, though much differently than the average Gappy villain. It's an InvokedTrope.
* SmoochOfVictory: The main character is on a losing streak.
* StupidEvil: Nouwa is much more about PragmaticVillainy. The ChaoticEvil way, though.
* VillainBall: None exposed so far.
