Ixion Saga: Dimension Transfer is about your average gamer, Kon Hokaze. When playing his favorite MMO, he comes across a female player with a very attractive avatar, and, after having bonded with her, not only assumes that the actual player is just as beautiful, but that he's finally found love! But before he can ask that they meet in real life, the buxom beauty asks if Kon can do something very important for her...Elsewhere, a group of travelers are attacked by a military troupe for an unexplained reason. When they're cornered and on the ropes, Kon suddenly comes plummeting from the heavens, still in his chair and not wearing any shoes. Kon lands on top of Variation, the man leading the troupe, and manages to cause enough of a commotion so that he and the others get away.The travelers introduce themselves as the warrior Sainglain, the beautiful Transsexual Mariandel, and Princess Ecarlate. The three explain that Ecarlate is on her way to be married as part of a treaty that her nation's military wishes to prevent, and she enlists Kon as her third bodyguard.The world Kon winds up in is based on Ixion Saga, an online game by Capcom.
Ixion Saga: Dimension Transfer provides examples of the following tropes:
Adorably Precocious Child: Ecarlate and the boy scientist from 17. Though he uses his cute kiddish side to stall Kon until his assistants handcuff him.
Ancient Tradition: Kon has to do a lot of Marriage Rituals for Ecarlate and Jugglabarks wedding for this reason.
Animals Hate Him: Kon, it's his reason why he didn't want to keep "Pet" in the first place.
Anticlimax: Ecarlate's groom Jugglabark appeared as mysterious man who knows what the Omniscient Council of Vagueness are up to and seems to have his own goals. Only for him to just turn to be a really creepy guy who gets pummeled by the princess after seeing his nose hair.
Axe Crazy: The assassin Georg sent to kill Escarlate. Then he suffers a Villainous Breakdown after seeing her become this in her "hyperactiviy" period.
Alien Lunch: The meal that Mariandale makes for Kon looks exactly like cola, fries, and a Hamburger and tastes like the real deal then Kon sees what Mariandale used to make it.
Bad Ass Princess: Don't let her young age fool you. Ecarlate won't hesitate to beat her enemies senseless when given the chance.
Berserk Button: Don't screw with Mariandel when she's cooking for the princess during the "hyperactivity" period. She will mess you up. Also applies to the princess during the period as anything can set her off.
Exasperated Perp: Kon is an expert on this for being able to make Leon to talk about his teammates in episode 11 and being able to force Pet to talk. Heck, even the one being interrogated didn't realize it themselves that they are giving Kon all the info he need.
Guns Akimbo: Marian uses two magically powered pistols.
Guile Hero: Kon actually becomes this in episode 11 when he realizes that beating enemy information out of Leon won't work. He takes advantage of his personality and pride to figure out how strong the Hyperion Knights are and other valuable info.
Handpuppet: Jugglabark wears one in his creepy dark bedroom.
Hero Antagonist: Incognito believe that stopping the marriage between Jugglabark and Ecarlate is a noble goal that the Ulga Sorority has. Of course then it's revealed they were being used to cause a war.
Heroic BSOD: Erecpyle spends part of episode 21 like this when he found out he wasn't chosen to be a Hyperion cause of his skills and that the Ulga Sorority are villains.
Honor Before Reason: This is Erec's main weakness. He does wise up against Kon the second time around, though. In Episode 1, this is what cost Erecpyle one of his testicles.
Hot Springs Episode: Episode 7. Erec and Variation journey to a famous hot spring in the hopes of healing Erec's lost testicles, but Kon and friends happen to pass through the same town at the same time they do. Naturally, Kon and Erec wind up in the same hot spring at once.
Hurricane of Puns: In the second episode, there's a sequence of ballsy puns, to Erecpyle's discomfort, considering he lost one of his family jewels as a consequence of Kon's attack.
Idiot Hair: If the princess gets this, bad things will happen.
Macho Masochism: Leon talking about all the Training from Hell he does to prove his loyalty to Erecpyle just gets everyone to call him a mashocist. They weren't wrong. When the gang captures him and the princess starts beating him up, Kon has to stop her because he's enjoying the hell out of it.
Mood Whiplash: Lampshaded in episode 3, when Sainglain spends a full two minutes telling the story of the great conqueror Arthur. At the end of the story, he explains that Arthur, after competing his great conquests, said that he really loves cats.
Kon: WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT???
Mysterious Watcher: The mysterious woman who watches Kon and the group in almost every episode and is also responsible for Kon being in that world. She's a Ixion who goes by the alias of Alma Flora and the name Mysterious Woman and chose Erecpyle to be a Hyperion. Revealed to be trying to stop the war and has chosen both Incognito and Kon's group to stop it.
Schizo Tech: The world Kon winds up in is like this. Guns, swords, magical swords, magical guns, tanks, animal mounts, abound. There's even a supposed form of wireless communication similar to the internet in certain major cities.
Shaggy Dog Story: Mariandale's backstory in Episode 5 is ultimately revealed to have been a lie Eclarlate and Sainglain made up.
After everything Kon and the group went through to make sure Ecarlate was married to Jugglabark she beats him up after seeing a noise hair and he starts a war with St. Pria.
The story Variation told in episode 22 about how how he joined Incognito. Naturally the nameless man who he was telling it to didn't believe him.
Spotlight-Stealing Squad: The Hyperion knights occasionally do this. While they still don't get more screen-time as the main characters, they successfully managed to hijack the first and third ending themes.
Super Strength: Kon appears to have this as he smashes through a wall in episode 10 when running away and his sword was sheathed when he did it. Though episode 17 suggests he's perfectly normal by that world's standards.
Title Drop: Episode 17 mentions the word Ixion, followed by a pointed reaction that it should mean something, and the actual title screen showing up. Turns out it's a Red Herring. While it did reveal a little background information, nothing came out of it.
Transsexual: Mariandale. When she first appears in the story, she is probably even more beautiful and bustier than all other females in the game. The only telltale sign of her sex change is that she can speak in a basso tone when excited, in contrast to her usual soft tone.
Why Did It Have To Be Nose Hairs: Ecarlate cannot stand nose hairs. They'll cause her to briefly enter her hyper activity period to beat the crap out of the one with them. Even Kon mentioning them in episode 24 is disgusting her.
Wrong Genre Savvy: Kon doesn't realize that what is considered bad and good luck is different in Mira until he got dog excrement on his gloves and then tried to wipe it on the ground.
