'''X Edge''' (officially given the name '''Cross Edge''' for English audiences) is a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover Tactical RPG developed by Idea Factory and Compile Heart. It was released in 2008 for the [[PlaystationThree Playstation 3]], and published in North America by [[NipponIchi Nippon Ichi Software]] and by {{Koei}} in European territories. It is the first Capcom crossover outside of the Marvel and SNK games to be ported to American shores.

While the game does feature a few playable Capcom characters, it has more in common with ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' than the ''[[CapcomVsWhatever Capcom vs.]]'' series, as the former is a turn-based strategy RPG.

[[Characters/CrossEdge A character sheet is in the making.]] Please keep it to Cross Edge-original characters.

!!Tropes used in ''Cross Edge:''
* AnIcePerson: [[strike:Lily]] Whim, of ''ManaKhemia 2'', has incredible icy abilities, but of course... She ''is'' a water Mana.
* AnimeThemeSong: "Blade of Tears".
* CharacterSelectForcing: During certain event battles (such as when you come across new allies), you have to use certain characters to fight.
* CoolBigSis: How Morrigan is portrayed towards Lilith.
* CombatMedic: Aurica is the first one you obtain. Misha, Marie, Miko, Vivi and Mimi soon follow, but the former three need to level up certain skills to access their healing techs.
* CombinationAttack
* {{Combos}}: The bread-and-butter of the game is its ability to unleash combos that dish out multiple hits per action.
* DownloadableContent: Surprisingly, a good chunk of it is free.
* DumbIsGood: This game seems to have cemented Felicia's Ditzy status for good.
* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins: Prinnies, dood!
%% Expy entries go in ShoutOut/CapcomVsWhatever.
* {{Fanservice}}: Lots of it, it has [[HotSpringsEpisode several hot springs scenes]] in there among all things.
** Transformation sequences galore, which are exclusive only to the females...
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by the Prinny, who claims he has to peep on the girls in the hot springs [[BreakingTheFourthWall because it's what the fans are expecting.]]
*** Also need for the [[spoiler: [[EarnYourHappyEnding True Ending]].]]
* FMinusMinus: Particularly bad battle ranks go [[BrokeTheRatingScale below F]] and go straight into G, H, and I territory.
* GuideDangIt[=/=]LostForever: The "True End" is guilty of this, with requirements such as only defeating certain enemies in certain boss fights, NOT defeating certain enemies in certain boss fights, defeating enemies in boss fights that usually end automatically after a certain period of time, or triggering events in previous areas of the game that are only available for a small window of time, give no indication to the player when they become available, and typically disapear forever if the player continues with the main story without finding them. Parts of this are made easier by a NewGamePlus, but other parts remain even then.
** This game also introduced us Idea Factory and Compile Heart's ''[[AgarestSenki love]] [[VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptunia for]] [[MugenSouls this]] [[VideoGame/BlazingSoulsAccelate trope]].''
* GunFu: York, Lazarus, and Zelos qualify but York more so than the other two.
* ItemCrafting: You'll need to use this often to create new weapons and items.
* {{Jerkass}}: York, to everybody except Miko.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: If you ever played this game, you should at least have a knowledge or at least have beaten ArTonelico because it WILL spoil [[spoiler:Shurelia's true identity and her [[NoSenseOfDirection lack of direction]]]].
** Also spoiled: [[spoiler:Adult Misha's appearance, and the fact that Ayatane is a traitor.]]
* LeakedExperience
* LethalJokeItem: The Chicken Emblem. At first, it sucks so bad that you want to get rid of it right away. But if you upgrade it fully, not only will it become one of the [[GameBreaker best items in the game]], it will also make you combo like crazy! Perfect for many bosses. The problem? You steal it from [[DemonicSpiders Lujit.]]
* LevelGrinding: You will find yourself doing a ''lot'' of this before traveling between areas.
** Less over time, as the enemies start yielding crap tons of exp. The first area barely gives 12 at best on standard. The second? ''Well over 40''. If you did Level Grind and accumulate TP to upgrade weapons, you have just reached the point of abusing your ability to upgrade stuff.
* LimitBreak
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters
* ManChild: Felicia, via {{Flanderization}}. One of the game's "missions" consists of catching a fish for her to eat because Felicia suddenly throws a tantrum.
* OriginalGeneration: A bunch.
* RankInflation: Your end-of-battle reward multiplier depends on how well you perform and how hard your opponents are. These go as high as "S" to A, B, C, D, E, F, [[FMinusMinus and ''below'' that]].
* SeanConneryIsAboutToShootYou: York in the game cover.
* SmugSnake: Both [[ManaKhemia Reicher]] and [[ArTonelico Bourd]].
* SpritePolygonMix
* UnstableEquilibrium: The costumes (for [[{{Fanservice}} female characters only]]) give some of your characters godly stat increases, which would take hours of normal item-crafting and LevelGrinding to achieve. Because some of these are available through [[BribingYourWayToVictory paid DLC]], those who shell out the cash can sleepwalk their way through the earlier sections by fielding a pimped-out AmazonBrigade.
** It should be noted that male characters have stat boosting costumes as well, however in this case the "costumes" are simply extra stat boosting equipment. Both genders have "costume" items that alter each characters stats, but only the females actually change their appearance.
* VerbalTic: Prinnies, dood!
** Felicia, ~nya!
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: Yuuto/York and Mikoto. [[spoiler:It's just [[GuideDangIt that you have to do a ton of things]] just to get Mikoto to survive.]]
