''Advanced Variable Geo'' (or ''Advanced V.G.'' as {{officially shortened|title}}) is a duology of console {{Fighting Game}}s by the company Technical Group Laboratory (TGL). The general premise, where in the future a grand championship tournament called Variable Geo is held annually to determine who is the strongest waitress in the world, derives from a series of {{H-Game}}s. This page is for the BleachedUnderpants console games only.

The first ''Advanced V.G.'' was a quasi-remake of the original {{H-Game}}, with [[DeletedScene the hentai content removed]]. It was released for the PCEngine (1994), SuperFamicom (1995, as ''[[SuperTitle64Advance Super Variable Geo]]'', with the story mode removed), PlayStation (1996) and SegaSaturn (1997; the H-scenes were restored to this last version in a [[{{Bowdlerise}} Boldlerised]] state). It also introduced the series' overarching plot in which the waitresses (Yuka and Reimi, in particular), were being manipulated from behind the scenes by Reimi's mother, Miranda, whose goal was to use them as test subjects in order to create the ultimate fighting machine.

''Advanced V.G. II'', which released for the PlayStation in 1998, focused on a new character: Tamao Mitsurugi, [[HeroWorshipper a fan]] of Yuka, who wanted to become just like her. She [[DefeatMeansFriendship befriended]] many of Yuka's old rivals, but eventually learned that her hero had lost the will to fight, since K-1 and K-2 were killed by Miranda [[YouHaveFailedMe for failing to defeat her in the previous tournament]]. After re-igniting Yuka's fighting spirit and overcoming Miranda's PsychoForHire, Saki Shinjou, Tamao and Yuka were pitted against Miranda's latest GattacaBabies, the Material twins, after which Tamao defeated Miranda, herself. The saga concluded with the waitresses coming together to prevent Miranda's escape, by unleashing a CombinedEnergyAttack which killed her.

The plot of these games was later loosely adapted for the ''Anime/VariableGeo'' OVA.
----
!!These games provide examples of:
* ActionGirl: Its about an all-womens MMA competition for combat waitresses, so the entire cast qualifies.
** WorldOfActionGirls: See the next entry.
* AlmightyJanitor: In VG, the waitresses are the most powerful humans on the face of the planet and are competing for the title of "goddess". Which makes them the ideal test specimens for The Jahana Group.
* AllThereInTheManual: There's a few guidebooks and novels that expand the ''Advanced'' universe. Even throwing in the characters introduced in ''V.G. II: Bout of Cabalistic Goddess'' (the direct sequel to the original pre-''Advanced'' game) for good measure.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: It isn't said whether Jun's complexion is her natural skin tone, or simply a tan.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Practically half the cast prior to their [[DefeatMeansFriendship befriending]], although Reimi was by far the most arrogant.
* AwesomeByAnalysis: Kaori Yanase uses data gathered from her fights in order to develop her training regimen.
* BerserkButton: For Jun, it's her old nickname of "Bonecrusher"; although prior to ''Advanced V.G. 2'', she also had an extreme distaste for Americans. For Erina, it's people who discriminate against her because she ''is'' American.
* {{Bokukko}}: Yuka fits this trope in the masculine pronoun department, however Jun fits this trope in both the masculine pronoun, tomboyish appearance and personality departments.
* BrandX: Just about every restaurant featured in the games is a ShoutOut to one that exists/existed in RealLife Japan. ''Hanna Miller's'' is based on ''Anna Miller's'', ''Bikkuri Monkey'' is based on ''Bikkuri Donkey'', ''TheRival'' is based on ''The Royal'', ''Skalark'' is based on ''Skylark'', ''Fushiya'' is based on the ''Fujiya Confectionary'', etc.
* BrattyHalfPint: Manami Kusunoki, who despite being 16 years old, still throws tantrums like a child half her age.
* ButNotTooForeign: Reimi, whose father Souichirou is Japanese, and mother Miranda is American.
* CatFight: While there's no actual ClothingDamage in-game, the loser of each match is always depicted with their uniform torn to varying degrees, their hair mussed, and their faces are usually covered in scratch marks.
* ChivalrousPervert: Ayako. She appears to be nothing more than a party girl who likes to get close to the ladies, until it's revealed she devotes a lot of her time to charity work, and she makes a hobby of drawing out would-be rapists and stalkers and then beating them up.
* CombinedEnergyAttack: Miranda dies during her escape attempt at the conclusion of ''Advanced V.G. II'', when Yuka and the other tournament entrants [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJxntwMlbMk unleash their combined might to shoot down her plane.]]
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Miranda Jahana, until her husband and daughter decide to lock her out of the company forever.
* DanceBattler: Ayako Yuuki is a dancer at the [=SoTO=] Rave Club, which is reflected in her idle animation and several of her special attacks.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Generally, the girls fighting in the tournaments become good friends with each other over the course of the story.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Ultimately, Reimi Jahana. She started out as a RichBitch [[TheOjou Ojou]] [[TheRival Rival]], but eventually warmed up to to Yuka and company.
* DesignerBabies: The Hybrids created by Miranda (K-1, K-2, and the twin Material units).
* {{Deuteragonist}}:
** As the heiress of The Jahana Corporation, Reimi serves as both the deuteragonist and as Yuka's [[TheRival primary rival.]] After being defeated by Yuka, she aids her putting an end to her mother, Miranda's, ambitions.
** Tamao takes over the role in the second game, relagating Reimi to the position of tritagonist. She helps rekindle Yuka's fighting spirit by making her see that she wasn't to blame for the deaths of K-1 and K-2, in the previous tournament. They have a friendly match afterward, which Tamao wins, before moving on to face Miranda.
* DisneyDeath / NoOneCouldSurviveThat: In the ending to ''Advanced V.G. 2'', Chiho is shot at point blank by Miranda, and then tells the rest of her TrueCompanions to blow up the plane she and Miranda are in with a SpiritBomb. Everyone thinks she bit the dust until she [[NotQuiteDead turns up at her own funeral]].
* DittoFighter: Tamao Mitsurugi, who based her whole fighting style on moves copied from Yuka.
* DummiedOut: Hidden beneath the datafiles of ''Advanced V.G. 2'' [[http://www.fightabase.com/images/trivia/204.gif are unused sprites]] of Ayako, Satomi, Jun, Kaori, and Manami sporting and posing in swimsuit bikinis. It's unknown whether these were meant for some special winposes or extra fanservice.
* DysfunctionJunction: Just about everybody except Yuka, Manami, and Tamao have ''extremely'' dark or messed up pasts.
* {{Eagleland}}: In an unusual case, Erina Goldsmith is a pureblooded American raised in Japan.
%% * EvilMatriarch: Miranda.
* ExcusePlot: As mentioned in the summary, the first two pre-''Advanced'' games [[PornWithoutPlot had virtually no story]], [[spoiler: as the entire point was to see the girls naked and raped]], whenever they lost.
* ExtremityExtremist: As a practitioner of Tae Kwon Do, Kaori's moveset [[KickChick consists entirely of kicks.]]
* FanserviceWithASmile: Pretty much everybody.
%% * FragileSpeedster: Manami. May be one of the only examples in a fighting game in which the FragileSpeedster is '''not''' a {{Ninja}}.
* FreudianExcuse: Reimi. Her mother put her through TrainingFromHell, never once acknowledged or praised her, and ultimately used her as a testbed for her GattacaBabies.
* FriendlyRivalry: Yuka and her childhood friend, Satomi, trained together at the same dojo and have been competing against each other since childhood.
* GagBoobs: Yuka's so stacked that she's ''embarrassed'' by her appearance, while Erina uses her melons to carry a lighter tucked between them.
* GeniusBruiser: Jun Kubota, the series's [[TheLadette hard drinkin', hard fightin']] BikerBabe is a major in astrophysics and fluid mechanics among others. One of her ''Advanced V.G.'' endings has her becoming an astronaut.
* GratuitousEnglish: Reimi's ("Burning Love!" "Rose Stinger!" "Gryphon Nail!"), Kaori's ("Data Pulse!" "Flat Scan!"), Jun's ("Kubota Buster/Shuttle!" "Earth Shaker!"), and Ayako's ("Mach Spin!" "Rave Storm!") attack names.
* HairColors: About half the cast has plausible shades of brown, black, and in Erina Goldsmith's case, blonde. The other half results in things like Manami's pink pigtails, Kaori and Ayako's shades of purple, and Reimi's silver hair.
* ItsAllMyFault: In ''Avanced V.G. II'', Yuka has lost her will to fight because she felt indirectly responsible for the deaths of K-1 and K-2, since Miranda killed them for failing to defeat her. Tamao rekindled Yuka's fighting spirit, by helping her to accept that she wasn't to blame.
* JackOfAllStats: True to form, Yuka doesn't excel in any one area, but she has no real weaknesses either.
* KameHameHadoken: Yuka's "Kyuukyoku Kikou Dan" and Tamao's "Lightning Crash" supers.
* KickTheDog: Miranda's specialty.
* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the original set of [[HGame H-games.]] The ''Advanced V.G.'' series did away with the {{hentai}} content, making it more of a mainstream fighting game series.
* LipstickLesbian / StraightGay: According to her character bio, Ayako entered the VG tournament as an excuse to see as many naked womens bodies as possible.
* MeaningfulName: Reimi and Miranda's surname, "Jahana" literally means "evil flower".
* MightyGlacier: Jun's stamina is the best in the game, being she's a pro-wrestler and a former Olympic champion.
* MinorMajorCharacter: Despite being [[ChildhoodFriends Yuka's best friend]] and old training partner, she and Satomi hardly interact with each other in the main story of both games (though you do have a fight with her in the story mode of the first ''Advanced V.G.'' game) and she has nothing to do with the plot. She's simply competing [[OnlyInItForTheMoney to support]] [[IllGirl her kid brother, Daisuke.]]
* MouthyKid: Manami.
* MovesetClone: Tamao is essentially "Sakura" to Yuka's "Ryu". And, in a unusual twist on the trope, Chiho was originally a ShotoClone as well, but was given a different moveset once Tamao's character was introduced.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: The fate of the world depends on a group of [[SupernaturalMartialArts superpowered]] [[AlmightyJanitor waitresses]], [[MilitariesAreUseless rather than the military.]] Think about that.
* {{Ninja}}: Chiho Masuda overtly, her cousin Kyoko Kirishima is also technically one.
* MultipleEndings: In ''Advanced V.G.'', each character (with the exception of Reimi) has a second ending that can be unlocked when Normal Mode is beaten on one of the higher difficulties.
* OhCrap: Effectively sums up Miranda's expression when she saw the girls' [[CombinedEnergyAttack combined energy]] headed straight for her and realized she was about to die, at the end of ''Advanced V.G. II''.
* TheOneGuy: K-1, who is the ''only'' male to ever be seen in a combat role.
* ParentalAbandonment: Yuka's parents died when she was younger (she was raised by her grandfather however). Satomi's parents died in a car accident. The whereabouts of most other characters' are never elaborated upon, although in Erina's case, her desperate longing to bring her grandmother to Japan might be a good indicator that her parents are gone as well.
* PlayingWithFire: Satomi might as well be a GenderFlip of [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Kyo Kusanagi]]. Erina uses KiAttacks to supercharge a cigarette lighter to create a makeshift flamethrower.
* PrincessCurls: Reimi. All part of TheOjou image.
* PromotionToParent: Satomi towards her younger brother Daisuke. Keeping the bills paid isn't easy for her.
* PsychoForHire: Saki Shinjou serves Miranda and is the VG equivalent of [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Iori Yagami]], being she's an AxCrazy sadist, who's obsessed with killing Reimi and [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou won't allow anyone to get in her way.]]
* TheRival: Yuka has several in the game continuity:
** Reimi becomes a rival to Yuka, following her defeat at the end of the first VG game. Though she still remains aloof towards Yuka, regarding her more as a WorthyOpponent, than a friend.
** Tamao is a straighter example, being [[{{fangirl}} a fangirl]] of Yuka, much like Sakura towards Ryu. As such, she emulates Yuka's fighting style in order to become more like her hero and tests herself by competing with her.
** Jun develops a decent amount of respect for her too, though she seems to have more of a rivalry with Erina Goldsmith that borders on them being VitriolicBestBuds.
* ShockAndAwe: All Hybrids have some unexplained power over electricity.
* ShortlivedAerialEscape: Noted near the end of the summary and in the CombinedEnergyAttack entry.
* SomethingAboutARose: Reimi's red roses are her trademark.
* SpiritedCompetitor: Yuka would make [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu]] proud. The tournament's cash prize and recognition mean little to her. Instead, she lives for the fight and the strives to learn more about herself and others through combat. [[spoiler: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJNg_TGL124 Her second Normal Mode ending in the first game]] and [[http://youtu.be/bDQfB85GvB4?t=2m23s her Normal Mode ending in the second]] even have her WalkingTheEarth]].
* TheStinger: After the credits of part 2, Tamao, Yuka, and the others are shown visiting Chiho's grave... When a hand suddenly touches Tamao's shoulder and she has a big smile on her face and she turns back to see who it really is.
* StoneWall: Kyoko Kirishima in ''Advanced V.G. 2''. Her own offense is rather weak, but her defense is high, as is the damage output from her counter throws.
* SuperPrototype: Technically, Reimi in regards to her mother's GattacaBabies.
* TokenMiniMoe: Manami, and in ''Advanced V.G. 2'', Tamao.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Erina keeps her aforementioned lighter [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything snugly between her breasts]].
* WeWillMeetAgain: Miranda tries to pull this in the climax of ''Advanced V.G. 2'', [[SubvertedTrope but doesn't make it very far]].
* YouHaveFailedMe: Miranda disposes of K-1 and K-2 for failing to defeat Yuka, at the end of ''Advanced V.G.''.
