The Battle of the Luminaries is a SpinOff of a popular fanfic called the ''Fanfic/UltimateVideoRumble''. It is a MegaCrossover tournament fanfic with several franchises entering. Most of them are from fighting games but some are not. The goal works similar to a Royal Rumble in wrestling. A series of fighters enter the ring and fight each other until only one remains. It is also a votefic where the readers can choose who they want to see move on and who they want to be eliminated. In every "Section", they can be only be thirty fighters at a time and when a certain of people had been eliminated, the next Section starts with new fighters coming out until thirty come out. This continues until there is one sole winner.

Along with the main tournament, they are also "Side Battles" where people could vote on outside of the arena. The Side Battles usually revolve around a plot where there is a conspiracy between villains and a RagtagBunchOfMisfits have to stop it before things get out of hand.

The winner of the first Battle of the Luminaries is [[spoiler: Pikachu from Franchise/{{Pokemon}}]].

The Battle of the Luminaries had been inspired by the Fanfic/MegamixTournament, one of the most popular UVR spin-off. Because of that, there will a lot of references to that fanfic in this story.

The first tournament is complete while a second is in progress and can be found here: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/642853/Tinyrocket

!!These stories provide examples of...

* AccidentalPervert: This happens TWICE in the story. [[VideoGame/WarioLand Wario]] had (mistakenly) thrown [[VideoGame/FatalFury Rock Howard]] onto [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rainbow Dash]]. By the time, Rock realized who he landed on, he was rubbing the pony's rear and before he had a chance to explain himself, Rainbow quickly eliminated him. Later, [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Shoma Sawamura]] had been knocked away from a [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed]] [[VideoGame/TalesofTheTempest Caius Qualls]] onto [[VideoGame/PowerStone Rouge]]. Just like with Rock, Shoma didn't realized that he was grabbing Rouge's [[ThanksForTheMammary breasts]] and was quickly eliminated.
* AuthorAvatar: The author of the story is also the main host of the tournament. It is also worth noting that the author of the Fanfic/MegamixTournament is one of the two co-hosts.
* BadassAdorable: Most of the current holders for the highest amount of eliminations are this. Particularly, [[VideoGame/{{Mother3}} Lucas]], [[VideoGame/YoshisIsland Yoshi]] and of course, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rainbow Dash]].
** Looks like [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pikachu]] is starting to turn into this as well.
*** His baby form [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pichu]] is also becoming this.

* BerserkButton: Don't use items when [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Barbatos Goetia]] is close-by. [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]] and [[VideoGame/WarioLand Waluigi]] learned that the hard way.
* BigBad: [[Franchise/StreetFighter M. Bison]] is the leader around the main conspiracy.
* BigDamnHeroes: Invoked by a RagtagBunchOfMisfits who tries to save the tournament from the conspiracy.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: A few fighters had been kidnapped and brainwashed by [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Kurow Kirishima]]
* ButtMonkey: Whenever something other than a fighter falls out of the ring, it usually lands in WesternAnimation/AngelaAnaconda causing Nanette Manoir, the main antagonist of that cartoon, some kind of misery.
* CombatMedic: Five of the invited fighters are some of the tournament doctors.
* {{Dojikko}}: [[VideoGame/TheKingofFighters Mignon Beart]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Colette Brunel]] entered the section at the same time and quickly befriended each other due to their similar traits. ESPECIALLY their clumsiness.
* DrowningMySorrows: [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Princess Peach]] had been doing this in the bar ever since she had found out that her own friends had been hosting secret [[VideoGame/MarioParty Mario Party games]] whenever she is not around due to her being an infamous cheap player. She even comes complete with a classic IllTellYouWhenIveHadEnough moment.
* EpicFail: [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]], [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Lucario]], [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Metaknight]] and [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Patamon]] worked together to stop [[VideoGame/Left4Dead The Witch]] from killing someone. However, they ended up either eliminating or angering the very bystanders they were trying to protect.
* EvilDetectingDog: [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Guilmon's]] nose is quite useful for tracking down villains.

* GreenEyedMonster: How [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Kurow Kirishima]] was able to brainwash so many people. By taking advantage of their jealousy whether it would be that one party is getting more work than they are.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Oh, very much.
* MacGuffin: One of the main plots of the story is a red light that holds incredible power.

* TheMole: [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Faust]] had joined the villains to figure out some kind of pain [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Blaze the Cat]] had been going through.
* MythologyGag: There are LOADS of these from the Megamix Tournament. It is quite hard to choose where to start.
** The owner of the Fanfic/MegamixTournament had loaned the Megamix Dome which the Megamix Tournament was held to the main host for his own tournament.
** Due to previously being a group that stopped a conspiracy, [[VideoGame/BlackAndBruised Ally Gator]] took leadership of the security team due to her being so GenreSavvy about the tournament.
** The lady at the lobby counter, the man at the restaurant and the bartender at the bar complained about the Side Battles that were appearing in their respective places wishing that it would be different from the Megamix Tournaments.
** [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Shadow the Hedgehog]] and [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Astaroth]] have an OddFriendship due to working the Sound Booth at the Megamix Tournament along with [[VideoGame/SuikodenIII Aila]]
** [[Franchise/StreetFighter M. Bison's]] plans had caused [[VideoGame/FatalFury Geese Howard]], [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Knuckles the Echidna]] and [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]] quite a lot of trouble and they attacked when they were in the same section as him.
** Speaking of [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]], in the second Megamix Tournament, a lot of people was interrupting his fights. He mentioned this when [[Wrestling/TheUndertaker Undertaker]] and [[VideoGame/StarFox Wolf O'Donnell]] helped him fight off [[Franchise/StreetFighter M.Bison]]
** Quite a few people were still ticked at [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear May]] for [[spoiler: eliminating the first champion of the Fanfic/Megamix Tournament, [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Kasumi Todoh]] by faking unconsciousness.]] Fortunately for her, the scorn was no where as bad as at the time.
* PopularityPower: [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rainbow Dash]] is an example of this trope, as the votes have allowed her to last TEN sections so far AND score FIFTEEN eliminations. [[LampshadeHanging Even the hosts notice this.]] [[spoiler: She finally gets eliminated in Section Thirteen... ten sections from where she originally started.]]
** Not just characters, but sub-nodes for the main nodes as well. Super Smash Bros has gotten [[spoiler: NINETY-FIVE]] eliminations, and [[spoiler: Franchise/{{Pokemon}}]] was one of the many sub-nodes that holds [[spoiler: thirty-three]] of those eliminations.
* PunchClockVillain: [[Franchise/CrashBandicoot Dingodile]] decided to play hooky from the main villains so he could focus more on the tournament.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits
* RedHerring: In the first tournament, the group led by [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Solid Snake]] thought that the villains wanted to kidnap him because he was one of the first people to interfered with their plans. [[spoiler: Turns out it was [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Luigi]] they were after.]]
** In the second tournament, the security team thought that [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Gabumon]] was the main target of the main villains after the Digimon had reported being attacked by [[VideoGame/SaturdayNightSlamMasters Jumbo Flapjack]] earlier. However, Jumbo was working for the group run by [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella De Vil]] and [[VideoGame/KingOfFighters Hyena]] instead whose plans are completely different from the main ones.
* RunningGag: At least one or more characters land in one of the nine VideoGame/MarioParty games every section.
** In the second Battle of the Luminaries, one or more characters land in the world of Franchise/{{Pokemon}}.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Luigi]] and [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Solid Snake]] respectively.
* SpinOff
* ThereIsAnother: One of the main plots during the second tournament is that [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Nightmare]] wishes to steal the soul of one sole person because that person had not only wielded [[{{BFS}} Soul Calibur]] before but he could also wield it BETTER than the original owner, Siegfried. [[spoiler: It turned out to be [[VideoGame/TalesofReBirth Veigue Lungberg]]]]
* TokenEvilTeammate: [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Astaroth]] only joined the team to stop the villains because his [[OddFriendship friend,]] [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Shadow the Hedgehog]] convinces him that he can go nuts with them. [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Bean the Dynamite]] can also be seen as this though he is not really evil, just [[MadBomber bomb-crazy]].
** In the second tournament, we have [[VideoGame/{{Blazblue}} Kokonoe]] who only concerned with [[YouKilledMyFather getting revenge on Hazama]], [[Franchise/CrashBandicoot The Evil Twins]] who flat out ADMITTED that if Dr. Cortex wasn't part of the villains, they would probably joined Bison's forces and [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Demitri Maximoff]] who not only stated that he was joining the heroes because he was bored but was actually part of the BAD GUYS back in the Fanfic/MegamixTournament
* TokenGoodTeammate: [[Franchise/CrashBandicoot Tiny Tiger]] is portrayed as AmbiguouslyEvil thinking that [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter his boss, Dr. Cortex is the good guy and Crash Bandicoot is the bad guy.]] He proved this by keeping [[PunchClockVillain Dingodile's]] hooky game a secret, being protective over his [[DaddysLittleVillain boss' niece, Nina]] and helped [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Blaze the Cat]] when she was in pain due to a amount of dangerous power in her body.
* UnexpectedCharacter: Most of the Mystery Fighters are portrayed this way.
* WhatTheHellHero?: After [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Solid Snake's]] team captured [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Momo Karuizawa]] and a BrainwashedAndCrazy [[Franchise/SonictheHedgehog Wave the Swallow]], tied them up and put them in a boiler room, Momo called the team out for doing it for a little girl and question their status as heroes. Snake merely replied with his famous line, [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4 "I'm no hero. Never was, never will be."]]
** While on the subject, when the group leaves Momo, they completely forget about the same brainwashed Wave. When [[VideoGame/SonicRiders Jet the Hawk]] found out after Tails, Gemel and Bean the Dynamite rescued him and Storm, he freaked out and called Tails out for his negligence.
* YouHaveGOTToBeKiddingMe: This is how [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Asch]], [[Franchise/CrashBandicoot Crunch]], and [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Sol Badguy]] react when [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rainbow Dash]] arrives, each of them saying part of this phrase.
** Later on, [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Ralf Jones]] said this exact line as well when [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Waddle Dee]] made his way over to challenge him. However, this particular Waddle Dee is the same one along the side of Kirby, Metaknight and King Dedede in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand''.
