The Megamix Tournament is a SpinOff of a similar fanfic called the Fanfic/UltimateVideoRumble. As such, it is also a MegaCrossover tournament-style fanfic, combining several different franchises (mostly fighting games, but there are exceptions), pitting them against each other in a huge tournament where they get eliminated one at a time until only one is left standing, much like a Royal Rumble in wrestling. Also like the UVR, the Megamix Tournament is a votefic, where the readers vote on which of the twenty (or thirty) fighters in the ring at the time will survive a particular "Section", and when the arena is filled again, the voting process restarts and keeps going until only one is left.

All three of the tournaments follow a similar format: Having an arena of fighters to vote on as well as "Side Battles" going on outside of the ring. At the same time, there is an evil plot being brewed and the mission of stopping it falls onto the shoulders of a mismatched group of heroes that join forces to take down the villains. The winner of the first tournament was [[spoiler:Kasumi Todoh from VideoGame/ArtOfFighting]] while the winner of the second was [[spoiler:Sakura from StreetFighter]]. The third tournament is still in progress.

It should be noted that the main thing that separates the Megamix Tournament from the Ultimate Video Rumble is that some franchises represented aren't fighting games. {{Suikoden}} has seen representation in all three tournaments, with SuikodenIII getting the most attention. Also, most of the Mystery Fighters that show up aren't from fighting games at all.

The Megamix Tournament is arguably one of the more-successful spinoffs of the Ultimate Video Rumble, as it has seen two tournaments completed and has a third in progress.

All three tournaments can be found on the author's profile [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/198977/SSBFreak here]].

!!These stories provide examples of...

* AuthorAvatar: The writer of the story appears as the main host and owner of the tournament in the story.
** He is also shown to be [[SelfDeprecation a little dim-witted]].
* BarBrawl: The machine that usually sends eliminated fighters to random franchises had a malfunction for one section sending the eliminated people to the bar stage in [[StreetsofRage Streets of Rage 2]]. Needless to say, panic ensues. Eight of the eliminated fighters even had a side battle inside of the bar brawl.
* BerserkButton: In the second tournament, [[VideoGame/MegaMan2 Heat Man]] finds out the hard way never to mock [[TheKingOfFighters Kula Diamond]]'s past or friends that died protecting her.
* BigBad: In all three tournaments, the main villain is [[StreetFighter M. Bison]], joining forces with the villains of the other franchises represented.
* BigDamnHeroes: Each tournament has a ragtag group of heroes from different franchises that join forces to fight the villains.
* ButtMonkey / ChewToy: [[TheKingOfFighters Ash Crimson]]. Not only is Ash a living punching bag in the arena, but he has never won a Side Battle outside of the arena. The author has made it clear that he hates the character.
* TheCameo: The second tournament included a whole "franchise" of actual fans, which the author thought would get more people interested in the story. It wasn't received very well...
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: [[SuikodenIII Gadget Z]] has a tendency to malfunction just before he enters the ring. He speaks in nothing but random quotes from all forms of media while malfunctioning.
** [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Chang Koehan]] also becomes this when he hits his head real hard. See TookALevelInBadass below.
* {{Fangirl}}: Ever since [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Heavy D!]] had saved [[VideoGame/WorldHeroes Ryoko]] from being kidnapped, she became this to him to the point she even enters wearing a T-shirt showing her appreciation for her.
** [[VideoGame/DarkStalkers Felicia]] becomes one to [[SuperMarioBros Bowser]] in the second tournament, giving him so much adoration that it creeps him out.
** After being forced caffine pills by [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Captain Falcon]], Zelda became a GenkiGirl and became a fangirl of [[KingdomHearts Xigbar]] much to his displeasure.
* FiveManBand:
** The security team for the first tournament:
*** TheHero: [[{{Halo}} Master Chief]]
*** TheLancer: [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Samurai Goroh]]
*** TheBigGuy: [[SonicTheHedgehog Knuckles The Echidna]]
*** TheSmartGuy: [[PerfectDark Joanna Dark]]
*** TheChick: [[VideoGame/{{SSX}} Psymon Stark]] (Subversion.)
** The security team for the second tourney:
*** TheHero: [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney Dick Gumshoe]] (Acts as the leader of the team.)
*** TheLancer: [[VideoGame/{{SSX}} Psymon Stark]] / [[SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Max]] (Both alternate between this.)
*** TheBigGuy: [[VideoGame/RavingRabbids Sergei]]
*** TheSmartGuy: [[PaperMario Marilyn]]
*** TheChick: [[VideoGame/{{SSX}} Psymon Stark]] / [[SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Max]] (Again, both alternate between this... Somewhat.)
* FourthWallObserver: [[VideoGame/{{SSX}} Psymon Stark]] and [[SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Max]], especially since they frequently turn to a script of the tournament. The other members of the security force just seem to go along with it.
* GrievousHarmWithABody: The third tournament includes [[{{Whiplash}} Spanx and Redmond]] as Mystery Fighters. Redmond spends the entirety of their stay shouting at Spanx to stop throwing him at their opponents.
* HeelFaceTurn: The Robot Masters from VideoGame/MegaMan1 and VideoGame/MegaMan4 are part of the good side; The former Robot Masters having been reprogrammed back to Dr. Light's side and the latter ones actually being Dr. Cossack's Robot Masters and not evil to begin with.
** [[FuunSeries King Lion]] in the third tournament (sort of). After realizing that all Bison's plans seem to attract [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits a group of heroes]] to stop it, he [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere wants nothing more to do with Bison to save himself from getting involved]].
* {{Jobber}}: Some fighters have a habit of taking the bottom spot of the votes no matter what. Some examples include [[FuunSeries Gozu, Mezu and Joker]], [[SuikodenIII Lilly Pendragon]] and of course, the Megamix Tournament's main ChewToy, [[TheKingOfFighters Ash Crimson.]]

* MythologyGag: [[Videogame/MortalKombat Scorpion]] and [[Videogame/EternalChampions Larcen Tyler]] became friends back in the UVR. The friendship carried over to the Megamix Tournament.
* NoFourthWall: The security force has a full script of the tournament, which they use to anticipate future battles. The only ones that seem to be aware that they're in a fictional story, however, are recurring members [[VideoGame/{{SSX}} Psymon Stark]] and [[SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Max]].
** The third tournament introduces {{Deadpool}} who, as per usual, is quick to point out that he's in a written story.
* OddFriendship: ComicBook/{{Venom}} and [[SuikodenIII Landis]] get along real well both in and out of the ring.
** Recurring members of the security force are [[VideoGame/{{SSX}} Psymon Stark]] and [[SamAndMaxFreelancePolice Max]], who usually creep the other members of the security force out with their antics.
** [[SonicTheHedgehog Shadow the Hedgehog]], [[SoulCalibur Astaroth]] and [[SuikodenIII Aila]] formed one after sneaking up into the Sound Booth and pulling pranks people they disliked.
* OhCrap: The host does one when he sees SquirrelGirl and [[VideoGame/MegaMan2 Air Man]] teaming up.
** {{Deadpool}} gets one when he realizes that the person he goes for first, [[{{Videogame/Suikoden}} Ronnie Bell]], [[spoiler: had just ELIMINATED both members of the aforementioned team-up]].
* OutOfCharacterMoment: After unwilling taking some caffine pills, [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]] and [[VirtuaFighter Sarah Byrant]] had been acting [[GenkiGirl hyper and excitable]] for the first and second tournament respectively.
* PaperThinDisguise: [[TheKingOfFighters Chang Koehan]]'s superhero getup is literally nothing more than a skincap and a cape. He even wears his normal fighting attire and still lugs around the ball and chain.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: [[Videogame/PaperMario The Anti-Guy]] is literally a normal-sized Shyguy dressed in black. He is also super-strong, a very powerful fighter and capable of giving [[Videogame/TeamFortress2 Heavy Weapons Guy]], who is at least five times his size, a suplex.
* PlayingPossum: [[GuiltyGear May]] did this act to eliminate [[spoiler: the champion of the first tournament, [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Kasumi]].]] The reaction to her scheme was less than pleasant.
* PopularityPower: The fights are hardly about seeing who would actually win realistically.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: There is always one of these to stop an evil plan that was going on in the tournament.
* ShockingElimination: Usually portrayed when an early favourite gets eliminated early.
** This can also be portrayed when a fighter eliminates another fighter ''by accident''. For example, in the first tournament, [[spoiler: Samus, the Metroid protagonist, was actually about to concede defeat to Pai Chan from the Virtua Fighter series. However, when Samus tries to allow Pai to throw her out of the ring, Samus's arm cannon lets off a charged shot ''completely by accident'', blowing Pai out of the ring and causing Samus to win their fight anyway.]]
* ShoutOut: [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Chang Koehan's]] superhero alter-ego "The Koehan" is directly influenced by "The Murray", the boisterous alter-ego of Murray from ''Franchise/SlyCooper''.
* SpinOff
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Arguably, one could think that [[Videogame/PaperMario O'Chunks]] was the real star of the second tournament.
* ThirdPersonPerson: [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Chang Koehan]], but only when he turns into "The Koehan".
* TookALevelInBadass: [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Chang Koehan]] becomes a rampaging superhero of justice called "The Koehan" when he ''hits his head overly hard''. He also apparently gains an infinite knowledge of the fighting style he normally fails at while in this phase.
** Another good example is out of all people, [[VideoGame/WorldHeroes Muscle Power.]] He was at the bottom least of the voting in the first tournament and yet at the second tournament, he managed to not only score an elimination but also survived the section.
** If {{Foreshadowing}} haven't told us so far, [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney Maggey Bryde]] may be getting to be this soon. Albeit against her will.
* UnexpectedCharacter: Several Mystery Fighters are portrayed as this.
* VotedOffTheIsland: [[AudienceParticipation Readers]] vote for who gets to stay in the ring and who gets eliminated. In a twist however, for every round a fighter survives elimination, he/she gets an elimination vote.
