[[quoteright:175:[[BulletHell http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fraxy3_6206.jpg]]]]
A [[FreewareGames Freeware]] arena [[ShootEmUp Shoot 'Em Up]] that centers around user-made content. The game comes with an editor that lets you make your own enemies, then lets you blow them to bits.

It comprises of two modes: Free Play, which pits you against one or more of the available enemies and Try, which gives the player different scenarios. The latter is [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove not as popular]], due to the fact that it's harder to make scenarios than enemies.

!!This Game Features:
* AprilFoolsDay: Gave us the [[VideoGame/{{Gradius}} T-401 Vic Viper.]]
* AttackItsWeakPoint - All the enemies are built around a single core. Guess what'll destroy the whole boss if you blow it up?
* BeamSpam
* BossGame
* BossRush - Free Play mode in a nutshell.
* BossSubtitles: "Incoming [boss name] rank 100!"
* BulletHell: There is a play mode called "danmaku", which reduces your hitbox to 1 pixel. And a ship type that's called, yes, Bullet Hell: [[OneHitPointWonder very little health]], pretty fast, and requires special energy to fire Blaster weapons.
* BullfightBoss: Mini Core. Turns to face you. Charges. Repeats those steps until destroyed.
** The Big Core part also does this as well, only it's much slower.
** Ditto with the Fighter Cores.
* CastFromHitPoints: Your life bar doubles as energy for your weapons.
* ChasingYourTail: Head Core.
* CoresAndTurretsBoss: The most basic kind of boss there is.
* ContinuityReboot: The 'Moth' series was originally made by Areo. @/{{Oneshiningstar}} picked up where he left off. Areo comes back with a slightly newer backstory.
* CreepyCoolCrosses: @/AlexMdle's Emperor's second phase. Also some of his other bosses.
* CrosshairAware: Remote Blast. Bonus points for moving at ''3 different speeds, including instantaneously''.
** [=TekTo=]'s Atlas also does this its' later stages, though it doesn't involve remote blasts.
** Ebo's Space Battle Ship 1300K does that, but again doesn't involve remote blasts.
* DeadlyWalls: Energy walls, [[CaptainObvious obviously]].
* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: You have infinite lives. Your mission is to whack the boss down as quickly as possible.
** In Try mode you cannot save replays if you continue after dying, but you can still beat the Try.
* DesignItYourself: Fraxy comes with a creation editor that allows you to create and edit bosses and such. A number of weapons and parts can be customized allowing for unique patterns and behaviors.
* DoppelgangerAttack: Eboshidori's ''Phantom 30K'', among others.
* DualBoss: The Deploy Core is built for this purpose. Paste several drones onto it and the core will launch them all as soon as the fight begins.
* EnergyBall: Power Ball and Ion Ring (with Fill option enabled)
* EyeBeams: Zapan D.
* FakeDifficulty: The use of the Screen (blur) effector looped just to confuse the player is one example.
* FanFic: Some of the more prevalent boss makers out there like to put together stories to go with their bosses. Eboshidori is one (his "Mara" series is finished and on Website/YouTube), as is [=A70M1C=] (the "][nfector" series).
** Getting your boss ][nfected is actually a very great honor for you as a boss creator.
* FollowTheLeader: Eboshidori pretty much singlehandedly invented the "What If...?" scenarios, the Search-Light wings, custom player weapons and the very, very often used "Globe of light spewing bullets" type of boss. And many, many creations with borrowed ideas followed. Eboshidori is to Fraxy, is what Simpsons are to animated sitcoms.
* FlunkyBoss: EBO-ALLTYNEX and EBO-GIGATYNEX HC.
* FrickinLaserBeams
* GameBreakingBug: Several bosses don't work properly in the latest beta versions, despite appearing fine in the editor. These include Eboshidori's ''Virupaksa II'' and ''Sakra-Devanam''(This one recently began working again, however). @/{{Oneshiningstar}}'s ''CX-07: Giant Delta 3'' has its 3rd delta self-destruct for no apparent reason just before the 4th phase begins. However, if it was not so, [[BulletHell you'd be panicking. That thing is spam.]]
* GlassCannon: The new (as of version 20090706) Quicker type. Its attack is insane, its initial boost is insane, its regeneration is just as insane, but its slow and lacks hit points.
* HeroicRROD: Over Soll Mode.
* LeitMotif: Several bosses are associated with certain themes.
** Omoresu's sound effect-laced title theme.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Missile part. LOOPED!
** Missiles can be set to release projectiles upon explosion (via extra parameters, as always). What if the projectiles are set to be ''MORE MISSILES''?
* MoreDakka: Needle Gun on Attack Action 3.
** Looped weapons.
* RecurringBossTemplate: Several bosses, both presupplied and user made tend to be flying {{Laser Blade}}s.
* ReflectingLaser: Reflect Ray will reflect off lasers, barriers, energy walls and even blades!
* SailorEarth: You'd be surprised how many [[{{Gradius}} Big Core]]-style bosses there are.
* SelfImposedChallenge: Bosses are to be fought with bullets only. This trope is so ingrained in Fraxiers that they make bosses with this in mind.
* SequentialBoss: Fraxy is up to the ears in these.
** The Phantom 30k changes shape based on what attack pattern it wants to use next.
* ShoutOut: Essentially, the rule is that "If it appears in a shmup, we can remake it."
** The Plasma Ring came from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' and the 3-armed powerup came from ''Cho Ren Sha 68K''.
** The pre supplied boss "Viper" looks like the Vic Viper, complete with options floating around it.
* SoundtrackDissonance: Broken Dream's final form.
* SpreadShot: All 3 flavours!
** Initial Burst: Practically every bullet-type weapon can be this.
** Spray Burst: The hardest to make of the three, but sometimes present.
** Exploding Shot: Energy Egg/Missile.
* TrickBoss: The Clock Trap, which starts out as a harmless, unprotected core until you find out that was a holding mechanisim for a robotic laser blender that you'd be crazy to take on. Luckily, it's also defeated by managing to escape it's gravitational pull and the surrounding laser emitters on top of being dedicated enough to destroy it's core.
* UpToEleven: "Death Label" Bosses, which are hard''er'' versions of other bosses.
* WaveMotionGun: The Laser. Bonus points for being available in three different sizes.

!!Tropes Specific to the [[FanFic Fan Fics]]:
* AlternateHistory: How the "Mara" series sustained itself after the defeat of the BigBad.
* BodyHorror: [=A70M1C=]'s ][nfected start out normal, then turn into a freaking horror shortly after taking enough damage.
* ClippedWingAngel: Sakra-Devanam Human Type. Not only does she turn into ''A FETUS,'' she rips off Iwanaga and later '' '''EXPLODES.''' ''
* CorruptChurch: Omoresu's Angelo Storyline has the Nyghts Clique, who worship Angelus.
** Boxorak's ''Soul Harvest'' had the Skelati, beings that [[TitleDrop harvest souls]] in an attempt to both appease their god and free him from a dimensional rift.
* DeusExMachina: There's a lot of this.
* DeusEstMachina: The big two: Reactor-00 and Sakra Devanam.
* [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Did You Just Blow Up Cthulhu/God/Satan/Bezerk AI 305]]: Let's just say those tiny little fighters are pretty damn powerful.
* EldritchAbomination: Many Fraxy FanFic series have one of these, either mentioned or as the BigBad.
** [[ThatOneBoss Eboshidori's]] series has Sakra-Devanam, [[spoiler:an artificial god [[LightIsNotGood bent on destroying humanity.]]]]
* GainaxEnding: The end of Eboshidori's Mara series.
* HumansAreBastards: [[spoiler:In Eboshidori's Mara Storyline, Sakra-Devanam was created by humans, and confirms this to such a degree that she decides to [[MisanthropeSupreme END HUMANITY]]. Remember, humans CREATED HER.]]
** ''Fraxy: Soul Harvest'' example: [[spoiler: Istykus, the diety of the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Skelati]], claims that this is because we're afraid of nature.]]
*** In fact, this is taken to such an extreme that ''[[spoiler: none of the main characters are human.]]''
* LightIsNotGood: Sakra-Devanam and [=A70M1C'S=] Reactor 00.
* MindScrew: ZarroTsu 's latest boss Wrath especilly during the final phase against White where it seems like reality itself is breaing down.
* OhCrap: [[spoiler: The ending of Mara's battle with Phantom 30-K results in Phantom 30-K freaking out and calling for help, then getting [[WaveMotionGun blown out of space]].]]
* OneWingedAngel: The Fraxy community loves this trope, as many bosses utilize this.
** A Famous Example is [=A70M1C=]'s Osiris, which seems to be a mechanical thing before transforming into an EnergyBeing for a long battle.
** Atomic Vault 99, which turns out to be holding [[spoiler: The Avatar, Osiris's first form. However, on Hard Mode, it spectacularly transforms into Osiris for an ''extremely'' long battle.]]
** Eboshidori recently created one for the FinalBoss of his FanFic Fragments of Men, Samsara. After nearly depleting his life bar, he merges with a [[CreepyCoolCrosses crucifix]], then attemps to fly to the top of the screen. If you don't beat him [[SequenceBreaking before then]], he, cross and all, transform into his angelic Sunyata form, which rains even more BulletHell down on you than before. Admittedly, fighting him like that is a lot ''better'' than just beating his temporary ClippedWingAngel form, but still...
* SamusIsAGirl: [[spoiler: Sakra Devanam is actually female, confirmed by WordOfGod (A.K.A. [[ThatOneBoss Ebo]]).]]
* SealedEvilInACan: Reactor-00 [[spoiler: (though he wasn't at first)]], the ][nfected...hell, there are a lot of them.
* SealedGoodInACan: DoubleSubverted With @/PureQuestion's Great Shining Seal/Arcana
* SerialEscalation: Eboshidori created a boss called Matrix Hibachi, which was pretty hard. Shortly after, he gave us the "Death Label" version, which had bullet patterns similar to the original, only harder. To clarify, ''the original was already BulletHell.''
** @/ZarroTsu, in what seems to be a complete "Screw You" to the player, released the "Death Label" version of his A.N.G.E.L. Boss. This is regarded as a completely evil move because....well, see DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist.
* SinisterGeometry: Oomagatuhi's DANMAKU-DAMASII-Mk5 as well as Eboshidori's True Acala and the second form of Broken Dream.
