->In the GRIM DARKNESS of the 41st Millennium, there's only WAR. In the NOBLE BRIGHTNESS of the 21st Century, there's only LOVE ADVENTURE. Someone Just had to mess up with that...
->-- Author, [[http://www.fanfiction.net/Warhammer_and_To_Love-Ru_Crossovers/762/3961/ regarding his fic]]

A {{Crossover}} FanFiction between ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' and ''ToLoveRu'', written by [=ZeroXSEED=] with the assistance of Jomlos, ''Warhammer 40000 Trouble'' is a WarFic set in the ''ToLoveRu'' universe where a NegativeSpaceWedgie resulted in an AlienInvasion. Naturally, all the characters from the anime are forced to fight for their very survival.

!!Tropes Covered in the story

* AbsurdlySharpBlade:
** Oshizu's (and thus all Eldar's) sword was justifiably one molecule thick; the Power Sword creates a matter-dismembering field, Rin's katana vibrates to create metal-melting heat and is made of {{Unobtanium}}.
** While unable to create a CleanCut, the Chainsword is just as sharp.
* AbuseIsOkayWhenItsFemaleOnMale: [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped Averted at one serious time]]. [[BreakTheCutie Sousuke is highly traumatized by the abuse inflicted on him]] after the girls walking naked with him inside onsen FIRST
* AccidentalMarriage:
** Due to the custom, Warriors/Knights in Devilukean saw ''[[DoubleEntendre Friendly Sparring]]'' [[UnusualEuphemism as a Euphemism]] for love confession/engagement (though not to the extent of marriage).
** [[WordOfGod Same sex Warriors/Knights couples may happen as a normal confession]].
* AcePilot: [[spoiler:Saruyama]] for the HumongousMecha, [[spoiler:Haruna]] for the gunship.
* ActionGirl: Pretty much every single female character who survives.
* AdamAndEvePlot: Yuu and Akiho invokes this, but while there are way more than two people alive (about 500 million survivors actually), everyone agreed to various extents.
* AfterActionReport: After a battle or at the end of a chapter.
* AfterTheEnd
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Risa [[KickTheDog invokes this on]] [[TheWoobie Aya]], and says that she doesn't even deserve to protect Haruna. Risa is obviously [[SecretTestOfCharacter lying]], [[KickTheDog but man that hurts]]...
* AmazonBrigade: Sisters Of Battle/Adepta Sororitas
* AnachronicOrder:
** Going [[FlashBack back]] and forth in every chapter, but largely linear, except for the first chapter [[InMediasRes REALLY shown the middle section of the war to retrieve Honshu]].
** Which is [[TheWarSequence EPIC]]
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: Chapter 4 changed the focus to...[[ADayInTheLimelight lesser character in a COMPLETELY different place]] with [[spoiler:Ren as the hero]].
* ArcWords: Humanity.
* ArmorIsUseless:
** Averted, while the infamous [[strike:Flak jacket]] [[MemeticMutation T-shirt]] is useless, Carapace and PoweredArmor are NOT.
** Played straight with Rito vs Takumi, [[spoiler:Takumi's kevlar vest did nothing in front of Rito's [[GunFu Railgun-Fu]]. At this point, Rito [[SuperSoldier able to lift 180 kg]], so it's understandable]]. As in RealLife, [[RealityEnsues kevlar vest not diminish the kinetic impact, only held the bullet and shrapnel outside]].
* ArtEvolution:
** Again, MythologyGag. Rito notices that ''MayoiNekoOverrun'' girls looks [[{{Moe}} younger]] and [[TeensAreShort shorter]] than ''ToLoveRu'' girls despite they're [[VagueAge exactly at the same age]].
** Even [[LegalJailbait Yami-chan]] is taller than Chise.
* AscendedExtra: many of them, particularly [[SatelliteCharacter those who lacked real background in Canon]]. For example, [[AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent Ren is the main character]].
* AscendedFanboy: [[spoiler:Saruyama]] and Narm
* AttackAttackAttack: Ork's default strategy...When desperate, Tenjouin Brigades did this with AttackDrone.
* BadAss:
** BackToBackBadasses: [[spoiler:[[HumongousMecha Space Marine Dreadnought and Eldar Wraithlord]]]]
** BadAssNormal: Takumi and the rest of MayoiNekoOverrun cast had nothing but their natural agility, MegaNeko, and [[IncrediblyLamePun down-to-earth]] MiniMecha.
** BadAssBiker: Rito, Yui, and SpaceMarine Scout on the first chapter. Later with [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Rough Riders]]
** HandicappedBadass: [[spoiler:Saruyama]], after losing both his legs and with the replacements not working yet, resorts to a HumongousMecha.
** HeartbrokenBadass: [[spoiler:Yui]]
* BadassBoast: {{Space Marine}}s are into this, but especially this one:
* ATeamFiring: Orks
---->Rito: I'm 17 and I'm a CAPTAIN OF ELITE COMBAT DIVISION! '''I'VE FIGHTING ORKS AFTER BREAKFAST AND KILLED MORE ORKS THAN AVERAGE PERSON IN YOUR FLEET!! THE ORKS DEFINITELY UP TO SOMETHING!'''
* BerserkButton: ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Komm Susser Todd]]'', don't even SING that near [[AmazonBrigade Sister of Battle]]. [[TemptingFate Oh, they did]]. Except it's sister themselves whose sing it...[[DissonantSerenity while slaughtering cultist]] [[AxCrazy alhought there's]] VERY SIGNIFICANT [[ConservationofNinjutsu difference of number]]. [[DeadlyUpgrade Guaranteed to sent into comatose after the fight...it can't be few hours to full week.]]
* '''BigEater''': considering each SpaceMarine eat 16000 kilo Calories (8 times average men) a day and that IS an average diet (aka ''healthy diet'') when they're not in a war. To a lesser extent, each member of brigades consumed up to 12000 Kilo Calories a day [[JustifiedTrope during their]] '''[[TrainingFromHell training regime]]''' and reduced to around 5000 during their service.
* BattleCouple: The SPARTAN members suspect [[spoiler:Rito and Yui]] are this. Inevitably, SPARTAN themselves composed of male and female in roughly same number. Exception of Rito, Yui, Saruyama, and [[EspeciallyZoidberg ESPECIALLY]] [[RobotGirl Peke]], they're BattleCouple in any sense.
** [[spoiler:[[CrackPairing Motemitsu and Rin]]]], their 30-days journey basically summed as LonelyTogether > AdventureCouple > UnresolvedSexualTension
** [[spoiler:[[HugeGuyTinyGirl Yami and Zastin]]]], certainly not PlayedForLaughs like above pairing. [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy She discard her own feeling]] and [[PleaseDumpMe he softly reject person liked him genuinely]], if there's a real reason, [[YouCantFightFate it's nothing but]] [[spoiler:DestructoNookie]].
* BattleshipRaid: SPARTAN doing this once.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: All three main character (Rito, Takumi, and Sousuke), while Rito arguably the [[TranquilFury scariest]], Sousuke is the most dangerous, [[PhysicalGod EVER]].
** And PAST Rito are [[RoaringRampageOFRevenge scarier]] than PRESENT Rito
* BigBookOfWar: [[ProductPlacement Games Workshop's Warhammer 40K Codex]], ItMakesSenseInContext.
* BigFancyGun: SpaceMarine. Saruyama said that earth-made Heavy weapons are stripped to naked form so that Guardsmen can use it, they're still [[AwesomeButImpractical 50 pounds]]
* BlingOfWar: While Sororitas and NARM played this straight, Guardsmen played this a bit. Their Armor are green-white and no golden marks of sorts ([[http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/frameastrays/mbf-p04.htm according to author, like this one]]), in the dark or inside woods they can pass easily as camouflage, while during formal ceremony, they're still fancy enough to shown of.
** SPARTAN version also coupled with [[InvisibilityCloak Photoreactive Electroplating]] for [[MoreDakka more stealth]].
----> Saruyama: When you see the SPARTAN, it's because they allows you, when you're NOT seeing them, it's incoming attack.
* '''CanisLatinicus''': Aside from the Division naming (W 40 K tradition), can't forget this exchange
* BoobsOfSteel: Chise mocked that the Brigade girls only proud of their bust size, turn's out she's '''[[HolyShitQuotient WRONG]]'''. Inverted the way they accomplished their task
** Yami looks like a 14-year LittleMissBadass, second strongest and most durable fighter amongst the cast.
** Rin is very tall but only fourth largest, [[TheAce yet also most skilled and experienced fighter so far, and could go toe-to-toe with Yami]].
** Lala has second largest and even stronger than Yami but lacked the skill.
** Saki has the largest breast among the PowerTrio, but a lesser Mario than Yui.
** Akiho has same size as Lala but [[CompetenceZone due to her age]], BioAugmentation [[JustifiedTrope only 75% as effective]] ([[OvershadowedByAwesome thus physically weaker than younger cast]])
* BunnyEarsLawyer : [[spoiler:all of them, don't piss them off]]
---->Rito: [[GratuitousJapanese Amerika-jin wa ningenia no yoonae hoka noium reesues o atsukaue kotoi ga dekinais]]
---->Saruyama: ([[LampshadeHanging whisper]]) [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign What the hell, that's not even Japanese to begin with!]]
---->Rito: Yes, it is, proper form; '''YOU RACIST AMERICAN BASTARD!!!'''
* CanonImmigrant: Takumi and his UnwantedHarem from ''MayoiNekoOverrun'' has a [[MegaNeko Big Damn CATS]] moment! Then Futagami (from an One-Shot ''Futagami Double'') [[OneManArmy shown up kicking Daemon Horde]] [[MonumentalBattle in]] TokyoTower...
* CharacterDevelopment
** Rito: NiceGuy > [[spoiler:AllLovingHero]]
** Haruna: NiceGirl> [[spoiler:StepfordSmiler]]
** Lala: InnocentFanserviceGirl > [[spoiler:RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething]]
** Saki: AlphaBitch > [[spoiler:TheOjou + LadyOfWar]]
** Yui: {{Tsundere}} > [[spoiler:{{Kuudere}}]]
** Ren: JerkAss DeadpanSnarker > [[spoiler:JerkWithAHeartOfGold]]
** NARM would be a general example, [[JerkAss after they're rising too high and proud]], [[BreakTheHaughty they're got their ass kicked by Asian girls]], for them being EagleLand type 2 it's twice fold of humilation that not only they're racist but they follows the general rule of DoubleStandard. After then they're became EagleLand type 1, [[PatrioticFervor just as heroic and patriotic as real]] SpaceMarine ([[SuperhumanTransfusion minus the extra organ and body size]] plus [[TechnicalPacifist selective Xenophobia]]).
----> [[ExactlyWhatItsSaysOnTheTin Sergeant Gunner]]: [[BadassBoast Why yes]], [[OurPresidentsAreDifferent our new president is]] [[MetalWolfChaos MICHAEL FUCKING WILSON]], [[MemeticMutation now this is]] [[AmericaSavesTheDay AMERICAN TIME]]!
* FoodPills/ FutureFoodIsArtificial: [[MeaningfulName BRICKLOAF]] (official name and printed in all-caps on the wrapper), is a bar-shaped loaf made of condensed nutrition enough to cover 12-hour expended energy inside a continuous battle (or heavy training). The name comes from its ridiculous density ([[ShapedLikeItself brick-sized piece weight LIKE A REAL BRICK]]), and being saturated with fiber, somewhat hard to chew. Subverted that it was available in 25 flavors!
* '''FakeUltimateHero''': Rito admit himself as this, he's an elite. Too bad every single NewMeat worship him, and Rito DOES know that his propaganda boosts their morale.
* TheCaptain: Rito and [[spoiler:Yuu Kotegawa]], among other captain, [[YouAreInCommandNow only these two that didn't have any kind of actual military experience]], [[ActionSurvivor at first]].
* {{Catchphrase}}: [[KnightTemplar FOR THE EMPHRAA]]!!
** [[PatrioticFervor FOR AMERICA]]!!
** [[PhraseCatcher This]] [[{{Troperiffic}} (insert Trope here)]] '''[[InvertedTrope IS NOT expected]]''' [[CasanovaWannabe from Motemitsu-senpai]].
** [[BadassArmy SPARTAN]] [[{{Hypocrite}} WILL LIVE!]] [[BadassBoast OUR ENEMIES SHALL BE DAMNED, IN HELL!]]
** [[PreAsskickingOneLiner SAY HELLO TO MAH]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill (insert BFG name here)]]
* ChildSoldier: And most of them are SuperSoldier
** and IN AMERICA as well.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: Dealing with orks' latent-but-subconscious PsychicPower. When they going [[BattleCry WAAAGH!]] their weapon increased in effectiveness (sometimes exponentially). Inversely, a very religious place where people gathered and [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway PRAYING]] decrease Ork's power.
* CloningBlues: It's [[MindScrew complicated and can be described as]]: There are three Rito(s). [[EnemyWithout PRESENT Rito]] (of the SPARTAN, very BadAss), PAST Rito (just after [[NoEnding confession]]), and [[GenderBending RIKO]]. Past Rito owns nothing about things after the armageddon (and still a very OriginalFlavor ButtMonkey), and Riko has [[MindRape painful]] FakeMemory and identity crisis. [[AWizardDidIt The Warp did it]]
* ColonyDrop: not a destructive example.
* CombatUninterruptus: SPARTAN vs Pretty Marines simulation combat, it's get so fierce that when Daemonspawn shown up they STEAMROLLED in the middle!
* CommandAndConquerEconomy: The Reason Tenjouin brigade exist and survive is because of shitload of ColonyDrop, lead to EasyLogistics below.
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], depending on situation, but usually played straight.
* CrazyPrepared: [[ScrewTheRulesIhaveMoney Tenjouin Family]] bought entire HOKKAIDO few weeks before invasion, and to a lesser extent:
** Principal secretly build [[ElaborateUndergroundBase area 72]] under Sainan High.
** And Chise bought Area 51 by her new-year allowance.
* CurbStompBattle: Rito vs Takumi, a rare KickTheDog moment for the redhead. Takumi recklessly head out to seek for [[CloudCuckoolander Nozomi]], and Rito tried to stop him. When Takumi lose control and attack him for getting in the way, Rito ended it with three stroke from his rifle butt, despite Takumi wearing heavy kevlar armor at the time. They making up afterwards and found Nozomi...
* DepletedPhlebotinumShells: [[DemonSlaying SLAYER bullet]], in terms of material they are just a standard tungsten-cored lead rounds. However said core are imprinted with microscopic anti-daemon seal, and whether you are puny heretics or daemon prince, [[DeathOfAThousandCuts sufficient number of bullets]] from [[NerfArm mundane Pistol/ Revolver]] ([[RevolversAreJustBetter which are better]]), [[NerfArm Shotgun]] ([[ShotgunsAreJustBetter even better]]), or [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill AntimaterialRifle]], you're as good as dead.
** They work on '''[[EvilCounterpart Chaos]] SpaceMarine''' too, where bullets struck on their armor will cause [[StandardStatusEffect continuous damage]], [[DisasterDominoes leading to small ruptures which get bigger]], and finally result [[AttackItsWeakPoint in a big crack]]. [[MoreDakka More bullets]] or [[ForMassiveDamage larger bullets]] works better.
* DestructoNookie: One time it was PlayedForDrama, but [[HilarityEnsues later they're exclusively humor. ]]
* DrillSergeantNasty: [[spoiler:Yui]], of all people, implied to be one, leading to an IronicNickname
* EarthIsABattlefield: It's not, it's hell.
* EasyLogistics: Partially averted. Technology, material and chemical compounds for weapon, armor, and Vehicle construction and operation are sent from space on a regular basis (via ColonyDrop). [[{{Squick}} Food, on the other hand]].
* EnemyMine: Straight example is SpaceMarine and [[OurElvesAreBetter Eldar]], they assumed a truce until all the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil ORKS and CHAOS]] eradicated completely.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: Almost an EyeScream if it's not a simulation battle, few member of [[AmazonBrigade Sororitas and female SPARTAN]] breaking through NARM optical suite with just '''two finger''' and tell them [[AchillesHeel it's their weakest point]].
* FiveRoundsRapid: Subverted. Infantry weapon CONSTANTLY upgraded from a standard Bolt Pistol up to Disposable Rocket Launcher and [[BigFancyGun personal Autocannon]].
* ForcefulKiss
* FriendlySniper: Peke, ShapeShifter SuperpoweredRobotMeterMaid. And Motemitsu, [[OneManArmy Vindicare goddamn Assassin]].
* GeekyTurnOn: Saruyama more....impressed about [[MrFixIt Nozomi's]] ability to repair his [[MiniMecha Dreadnought]] than her being [[PantyShot skirtless]] at the time.
** Saruyama just cannot catch a break, he admitted that [[WhatBeautifulEyes Aya has very pretty eyes]] [[TheGlassesGottaGo when she found out her eyes fixed]] after BioAugmentation process.
* GenreSavvy: [[spoiler:Saruyama]] knows whats happened and what CAN and WILL happens. [[spoiler:He's an AscendedFanboy after all]]
** RunningGag: Any time MythologyGag appears, Rito is the MetaGuy, Saruyama lampshade it, and Takumi will deliver MST3KMantra.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Several moment for heroes, notably:
** Rito [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] Takumi due for him being a LeeroyJenkins
** Saki's mild BreakTheCutie moment, when Chise going bratty and annoying, trying to bribes some Brigades, Saki BrightSlap and scold her:
* TheGlassesGottaGo: As BioAugmentation process also repaired eye flaws, this trope is expected. Played straight with Aya ([[WhatABeautifulEyes according to Saruyama]]) and inverted with Mio, the latter claims ([[LampshadeHanging and acknowledged by others]]) that her glasses were [[FetishFuel one hell of a charm point]].
** Even more that, Mio is neither [[NerdGlasses nerdy]] or [[StoicSpectacles stoic]], she's a {{Moe}} type ([[AmbiguouslyGay She isn't a total saint however]]).
* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: This trope is used very often mostly involving IntimatePsychotherapy.
* GrimDark: [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[AuthorAvatar unnamed Navigator]].He reformed the Earth using godlike powers of the protagonist, effectivelly hit ResetButton loosed his SuperMode and closed The Warp Rift by erasing them from existance.
* HollywoodPudgy: Lampshaded via RuleOfFunny. [[HotScientist Mikado-style]] BioAugmentation won't change the appearance of the test subject besides few inch height gain (ridiculously higher with those recently hits puberty) and at the worst, slightly formed muscle.
* HolyHandGrenade: Sousuke's FusionDance power only uber-effective against Ids (and Daemons, and CHAOS SPACE MARINE), so does Oshizu's KiAttacks. They still powerful enough in a mundane fight (like against Orks), but far from GameBreaker.
* HonorBeforeReason: [[{{Anvilicious}} Averted to an extreme measure]] with [[EliteMook SPARTAN Company]], they're [[GlassCannon NOT encouraged to attack using melee method]], and [[TacticalWithdrawal should retreat if overwhelmed]], [[CombatPragmatist then attack again when they're far enough]]. DefensiveFeintTrap is their [[CrossesTheLineTwice BREAKFAST]].
** And then there's [[RuleOfCool Chain Bayonet and Power Bayonet]] on chapter 3, encouraging them for doing [[GunFu Lasgun-Fu]] when cornered.
* HugeSchoolgirl: When undergo BioAugmentation, the subject will gain height by few inches (up to 8 inches actually). Notably, [[CaptainObvious this is more of a problem with girls]], Saki ESPECIALLY has a problem being 166 cm now (actually just slightly taller than Lala, [[HumanAlien but Lala is special]]). Yui is 171 cm and Rin is taller at 173 cm, they has no qualms about that. Note that these are just beyond normal height of Japanese girls and rather ordinary when they meet EagleLand counterparts.
** [[AllThereInTheManual The tallest girl in the brigade however is 180 cm, and dating exceptionally tall guy too]].
* IdenticalStranger: First time Sousuke met the heroes during Tokyo Tower shownoff, Rito, mistaken him for Yui Kotegawa (albeit they quickly realize he isn't). Later, everyone but two of them mistaken him for Yui's Sister.
** [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/WTFBBQ_Anti-ship_9094.JPG Canon Proof]] (warning, use AntiGoogle in case of FlameWar)
* ImplacableMan: Generally, [[NominalImportance NAMED]] SpaceMarine are this. But Rito(s) took it to "[[BerserkButton HOLY]] [[BewareTheNiceOnes SHIT]]!" level.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Oshizu, Aya, and Nozomi.
* IronicNickname: [[DefrostingIceQueen MISS TUNDRA]], [[DrillSergeantNasty THE TORMENTOR]]
* FromBadToWorse: [[spoiler:Chapter 3]]
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Saruyama and Run
* LadyOfWar: Saki went hammy inside battlefield]] but [[TheOjou VERY graceful outside it]]. Aya is shy [[NerdGlasses on]] [[ShrinkingViolet all aspects]], but still kick some ass. Haruna is always [[TheIngenue calm and gentle]], [[DissonantSerenity even]] [[SlasherSmile while]] [[ThisIsGonnaSuck being a]] PersonOfMassDestruction. Oshizu is [[TheDitz clumsy]] and a [[DumbIsGood somewhat dummy]] which oddly known kenjutsu. Rin is polished by TheStoic [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting]] NinjaMaid tropes.
* LargeHam: SpaceMarine's [[WorldOfHam breakfast]], ToLoveRu cast are rather calm...[[BadassBoast except when they step on the battlefield]] anyway.
** [[TheOjou Saki]] is theChampion of Ham-chewing in [[ActionGirl female character roster]]. While Saruyama and Yuu [[NoIndoorVoice CONSTANTLY HAMMY]], Rito [[UpToEleven OUTHAMMED]] them when the time comes.
** Rito can outhammed Orks, what will you expect? (see LoudOfWar)
* LensmanArmsRace: Chapter 1 shown the ActionSurvivor using conventional firearm (which is useless) and high-explosive grenades. Chapter 3 depict a War of small-sized TITANS.
* LoudOfWar: during 'Tokyo Siege', the Orks are so numerous that WAAAAGH!! can be heard echoing allover the city. Rito's solution? BattleCry with 130 dB Loudspeaker!
* MeaningfulName: Also AwesomeMcCoolName for all teams, like [[TheSpartanWay SPARTAN]], [[CanisMajor Canis]] [[HumongousMecha Titanicus]], [[KnightInShiningArmor Ritter]] [[TankGoodness Schild]]...
* MeLoveYouLongTime: Played straight [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority as soon as NARM ass-handed by female members of Brigades, NARM develop MASSIVE respect for them]] (and some of them also hit LoveAtFirstPunch), Saruyama notes mostof them WORKS, albeit in BelligerentSexualTension variant.
* MegaNeko: Stray Cats' KITTEN CAVALRY!
* {{Metaphorgotten}}:
* LaResistance: Full of em, and always expys of [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything something else]].
----> Rito: SPARTAN, just like the entire Brigades are formed in a way to avoid meaningless destruction and to test our chance to save this earth by our own hands. And we have [[MiniMecha Sentinels]], [[AwesomePersonnelCarrier Chimeras]] [[TankGoodness Siegfried, Leman Russes, BANEBLADES]]...[[AndZoidberg and]] [[HumongousMecha Titans as our backup]]. [[SarcasmMode Sounds good right]]?
* MildlyMilitary: Justified, as the Commissar, highest authority in Tenjouin Brigade is a [[ModernMajorGeneral former Businessman]]. Lower officers are those who had a taste with real military and they did the job. After modified, these Brigade members is taught by SpaceMarine with the most basic yet effective military skill, Company Captain is those with much better leadership skill, and below them are Elites (equal Lieutenant) and Squad Leaders (equal Sergeant).
** EVEN MORE SO with [[FunWithAcronyms NARM]], they're what formed if crazed Fanboys [[AscendedFanboy get their own wonder artifact]] and gathers. AssKickingEqualsAuthority and no respect beyond that ([[LaserGuidedKarma until SPARTAN kickass them]]), CrazyAwesome, and GenreSavvy ([[ProperlyParanoid strictly required]]).
* ModernMajorGeneral: Commissar (Ryuga) Tenjouin, as he explained in chapter 3 that all the Junior Officer deciding the strategy and tactics and not him, but he handles everything regarding the wargear production, supply network, and deployment. Then again, he's a businessman.
---->[[RedShirt Escort A]]: [[SeriousBusiness Stock market is a Battlefield, Sir!]]
** Inverted with Saibai, whose very competent when given a Squad (~10) or a Company (~100), and '''dangerously bad''' when it comes to ENTIRE DIVISION (>1000).
* MoralityPet: To a lesser extent, Riko is this to Ren, [[PetTheDog stop him from]] being a full fledged JerkAss. While it's always going [[StatusQuoIsGod back and]] [[RelationshipUpgrade forth]], Motemistu is the ONLY [[MissingMom living person]] [[DefrostingIceQueen Rin]] [[CryCute ever]] [[WhenSheSmiles shown]] [[LuminescentBlush emotions]]
* NegativeSpaceWedgie: The Warp
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: During the war between SpaceMarine & Eldar Cruisers versus Orks battleship, a stray [[{{EMP}} Cyclotron Torpedo explode above Eurasia]], [[SarcasmMode nice job making half of the Earth totally undefended]].
* NoodleIncident: When Gunship convoy [[OhCrap ambushed by ork's]] [[FunetikAksent Fighta-Bommer]], [[spoiler:Haruna]] launch a SlasherSmile, mentioned by captain Yuu.
* NoRomanticResolution: Funny thing that [[MayoiNekoOverrun Takumi]] and his UnwantedHarem problem is UNRESOLVED in any sense, Motemitsu and Saruyama making fun of him mercilessly, only [[NotSoDifferent Rito cheers him up]].
* OneHeadTaller: [[MayflyDecemberRomance except that one]] CrackPairing, invariably the male will be taller, almost everyone got their LoveTriangle, and chances one of them is this (lampshaded, [[SarcasmMode thanks to Saruyama]]). Rito, Ren, Saruyama, Motemitsu and Zastin as comparison.
** Those who aren't completely OHT is Lala and Yui (For Rito), Aya (For Saruyama), Riko and Run (For Ren), and Saki (for Motemitsu).
** And those who certainly OHT is Haruna (For Rito), Mio (For Saruyama), and Saki (For Zastin).
* PlatonicLifePartners: Rito and Saki
** Saki offered Rito a [[GladToBeAliveSex a Night together]] in chapter 3 ([[RefugeInAudacity Open radio channel, no less]]), he laughed and refused boldly!
* PlayedForDrama: Everything that in the original story always PlayedForLaughs. From Rito's MadeOfIron & SuperSpeed tendency despite being a BadassNormal, Lala's unnatural SuperStrength. And let's not forget about ''[[GRatedDrug Berserker energy drink]]'' from first chapter, which treated as [[FantasticDrug real Combat Drugs]] by Rito...
** Which is [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity GENUINE DANGEROUS]] for earth creatures, a MythologyGag to Episode 3 and Chapter 10.
* ThePowerOfLove: [[AnAesop Mostly they win]], [[BrokenAesop sometimes not]]...
* PowerPerversionPotential: SPARTAN, and to the lesser extent, fellow brigades taking this to RefugeInAudacity territory.
* PsychicPower: All Orks (See ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve above) and all Eldar, Oshizu got one (and [[RandomPowerRanking peak level]] one at that) from hundred of years experience as a ghost, Motemitsu's unlucky streak to girl is because he's a complete [[AntiMagic Blank]] ([[BattleButler Rin]] is a Blank too, resulting a [[CrackPairing Cracktastic]] BattleCouple).
* RedOniBlueOni: Rito and Ren, [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience color]] and [[NotSoDifferent Personality]]. Both are HotBlooded, both of them are [[AllLovingHero aspiring]] [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure leader]], but one is a NiceGuy and one is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* ReplicantSnatching: Ids, once completed and corrupted, will kill the original and replaced them in society.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Aya went BALLISTIC when [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Risa]] [[CherryTapping humilated her]] in an almost-lethal live combat, and keep conscious in an [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat EXTENDED crazy-ass 13G maneuver]]
* RuleOfCool: and BiggerIsBetter, for some reason mixing ork fungus in pet food [[MakeMyMonsterGrow multiplies said pet's size and physical ability]]. [[AppliedPhlebotinum Turns out that 'mutated' orkoid Fungus contain Hormones that increase pet's growth and metabolism until certain level]]. Cats and Dog + said Fungi = Pet Cavalry.
* SatelliteCharacter: In canon its [[GirlPosse Aya and Rin]], whose their only EXISTENCE is around Saki, also [[ThoseTwoGuys Mio who revolves herself around Haruna]]. To a lesser extent Saki and Risa, both have distinctly different personality and CharacterDevelopment among extras, and the first has a patented backstory herself. [[DemotedToExtra And don't even start on Ren & Run]], [[RunningGag actually this is]] [[PhraseCatcher expected from Motemitsu-Senpai]].
** See the AscendedExtra above, RuleOfDrama UpToEleven. Almost everyone was given RANDOM backstory ([[RuleOfCool which oddly fitting the universe]]), apparently, [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Principal is a Cold War veteran]]
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: While Saki grown out of it, Chise isn't, until Saki BrightSlap her and led to:
** ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: Delivered straight by Saki to Chise, led to BreakTheCutie moment.
* SituationalSexuality: See BattleCouple above, sometimes, PowerOfLove [[YouCantFightFate averted just that hard]].
* {{Squee}}: [[AmazonBrigade Sisters']] reaction when Rito sing...[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0jpt9-iZME this]].
* StayInTheKitchen: oddly this applies to UNDERAGE and half of the ADULTS regardless of gender (CompetenceZone played too much?), Underages largely founded themselves well protected in the colony by a local defense forces composed half of the adults, while the latter half provides logistic support and such. Modified teens, boy or girl, going into the front line and treated as equal (PositiveDiscrimination really hit both gender).
* SuperSoldier: Generally all young members of the Brigades, while SpaceMarine is just that... Extreme, all the members has been modified to the peak of their body while remains a normal human.
* TankGoodness: like this one that sum its up:
---->[[TheCaptain Yuu]]: HEY YA ORKS, GOOD MORNING AND SAY HELLO TO MAH DEMOLISHER CANNON!!
* TheHeartless: Ids, no matter if they're good or evil, are [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity always chaotic]].
* TheLancer: [[spoiler:Yui to Rito and Saki to Lala]]
* TechnoBabble: AscendedFanboy prone to this
* TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse: Tenjouin brigade specifically LIMIT the BioAugmentation potential so that beyond increased height and theoretically overweight yet ideally lean body, it's rather hard to tell the difference between normal and Enhanced Teenagers.
* [[spoiler:TokyoFireball: '''[[KillSat EXTERMINATUS!]]''']]
* TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse: In an inversion, Tokyo is so symbolic that some factions marked Tokyo as 'Final battlegrounds'.
* TookALevelInJerkass: EVERYONE.
* [[TookALevelInBadass Took Several Level In Badass]]: [[ButThouMust No choice]]
* TrainingFromHell: Implied during first TimeSkip
** Specifically, first Seven day of the BioAugmentation are total NightmareFuel/ NauseaFuel. After that things are getting lighter, with the recruits are taught to handle the weapons and vehicles properly with few hours field training session a day. The actual training begin on the second week is the hellish one....
* {{Tsundere}}: Several. There are Yui, Amane, and Fumino.
