Sanchez Chronicles (the collective name for the Sanchezes franchise, going from The Chronicles of Zander and Thom Sanchez, all the way to [[AwesomeMcCoolName Sanchez Chronicles: Beyond Dimensional and Mortal Bonds]]) is a series about Zander Sanchez, a godly being who leaves reality to create his own paradise far away from the world of the humans and follows his immortal family [[CursedWithAwesome gifted with insurmountable power]], travelling through space and dimensions and all the friends and allies that they encounter. It premiered on the now-defunct Skwid as God Squad on July 8th, 1988, before the channel was bought out and became Ultra TV in 2003, around the same time that God Squad: End of Ends had reached its final season, and was revamped as [[UnCancelled The Chronicles of Zander and Thom Sanchez]]. To date, the show's cast, counting its sister series Ballistic, [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters boasts over 80 characters]], most of which are [[EveryoneIsASuper not human and phenomenally powerful]].

The series' most enduring concept is [[SailorEarth adding anyone]] [[MegaCrossover into their universe with little context]], Even if this can [[MarySue backfire]]. Most of this comes from the fact that [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks nothing is impossible or improbable]], though some of the team [[UnlikelyHero is questionable at best]].
The Sanchez’s, [[SturgeonsLaw for the most part]], are more often [[UnfortunateImplications ‘recruited’]] because of three reasons: 1) they have powers, 2) they are mistreated and/or unhappy in life, 3) they want a chance to succeed in something greater or want something that would be impossible. It’s mostly the majority of them and, with few and far between exception, all of them became Sanchezes mostly [[FakeMemories due to losing their original memories]] or because of [[MagnificentBastard Zander’s manipulation]], though [[RagsToRoyalty this is mostly for the best]] and [[NotBrainwashed some even join voluntarily]] and most even stay after TheReveal. However, Zander doesn't just use them or kidnap them, rather [[HappilyAdopted genuinely makes their lives better and tries to fulfill their wishes]]; there is a reason he called it [[TitleDrop the Dream Realm]] after all.

!!This work contains examples of:
* ArtificialHuman- Just about every character in the series, even when most of them aren't actually human, has a humanoid appearance.
** It’s established that the denizens of the Dream Realm can teleport and enter dreams.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses- Isn't that right [[DisneyPrincess Stephanie]], [[GreenThumb Ivy]], [[PrincessClassic May]], [[FallenPrincess Amber, Camille]], [[IJustWantToBeSpecial Alice]], [[PrincessPhase Skyla]], and [[SpoilerSweet Clara]]? [[IThoughtYouMeant No, not that]] [[DrawnTogether Clara]]
** [[BadassPrincess Lacey Alexis]] is also technically a princess, [[BerserkButton but you’d be wise not say it out loud]].
* OneWingedAngel- Most of the powerful enough Gods in this series, in particular Zander, Thom, [[EvilClone Xekkyl Lucifer]], and Melinda just to name a few, are able to use their True Forms for a time and destroy everything.

* DarkIsNotEvil- a HUGE theme and motif of the series, [[DarkIsEvil except when it isn’t]].
* IJustWantToBeNormal- Mostly Katie, but Carol [[Flanderization had this as an arc]] and quite a few other Sanchezes have this as well.
* GirlNextDoor- A lot of the Sanchezes [[IJustWantToBeSpecial start out as this]] and some even stay this way. Again, Katie is the best example.
* CrowdedCastShot- the last shot of the finale.

* TangledFamilyTree- Zander gets around… [[SexGod a]] [[ExtremeOmnisexual lot]].

* BoxingEpisode- [[CuteBruiser ‘Cute’ Alice]] is a boxer, and the Golden Glove champion.
* HiddenDepths- Bridgette’s story arc, involving Zander [[CharacterDerailment consistently abusing her]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards to the point he started to question his actions]], caused Zander to have a BSOD and finally [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone completely snap from the realization of becoming his father]] and [[GoMadFromTheRevelation essentially lobotomize himself by removing his violent tendencies]].

* GrandFinale- On the eve of [[JesusChrist J.C.’s]] Apocalypse Party, Zander’s father comes back, and he has Zander’s ability to steal powers, in particular Zander’s hyposis. He uses this to compile together [[EvilCouterpart his own, more superior roster of gods to destroy and his son’s work]] and see him die at his feet [[CreateYourOwnVillain for killing him]], and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beating his grandchildren into dominance]]. He actually becomes so powerful that [[TheBadGuyWins he’s able to absorb Zander’s True Form and his power]]—[[BatmanGambit which is exactly what Zander wanted]], for now he’s become a threat to All Known Existence, thus forcing the [[PowersThatBe Creator of Reality]] [[BoltOfDivineRetribution to step in and remove him from time and space]]. At Zander’s request, the Creators instead replace him with Zander’s grandfather Timothy [[NiceJobFixingItHero who takes over S-Squad in his son’s place]]. Also, at some point, Lacey Alexis admits to Katie that she’s her best friend, and they all watch the Earth destroyed, only for God to announce his creation of Earth 2.
* PhysicalGod- Zander Sanchez himself, and his brother [[BigLittleBrother Thom]] and baby sister [[MrsRobinson Melinda]], all of whom share the immense and nigh-immeasureable power that come from Zander being struck down by the gods themselves.
* *They all also fit the DeityOfHumanOrigin trope.
* WhatTheHellHero- Zander goes through a lot of these, but then again he [[AntiVillain never claims to be the hero]].
* SoProudOfYou- Stephanie seeks this from [[BigSisterWorship Lacey Alexis]], but ultimately she admits this is unattainable.
