Darth Wiki: The Blue Trilogy
Search your heart, ***…The Blue Trilogy
— Nene Takane, as she was about disappear from the sights of Weissdrache.
is, you guessed it, a trio of novels in the works by Troper Neves783
. Due to several circumstances, this work is still in major Development Hell
. (Still at book one, and only 12 out of the planned 30+ chapters have been completed as of this edit.)
The story focuses mainly on Wiessdrache
, a heavily troubled individual who starts off as the villain of Blue Eyes
, after which he becomes part of the R.R.F. in Blue Rainbow, before finally having a full Heel-Face Turn in Blue Starlight
. Along the way, he is caught in a complex web of Elemental Powers
, Sacred Spirits
, the Messier Dragon plus the Galaxy Dragon
, and a major machine invasion
that could result in the End of the World as We Know It
(Note: This is a work in progress, and so, many of these tropes are subject to change along the way. Please be patient.
Provides Examples Of:
open/close all folders
- Action Girl: Every female.
- Battle Harem: Weissdrache, with the six Agents, beginning near the end of Blue Eyes.
- BFS: The Agents, Unmei, Weissdrache, and Domingo all get one.
- But Not Too Foreign: Averted. Everyone is a pure nationality. Dubious in the case of Unmei, as her background is unknown.
- Calling Your Attacks: Deconstructed with Weissdrache: he will attack the protagonists as they call out their attacks.
- Cool Bike: Rachelle's Hayabusa.
- Cool Boat: The Saber, which serves as the R.R.F. mobile station.
- Cool Helicopter: Carmen's standard-issue Comanche helicopter.
- Deconstructor Fleet
- Elemental Powers: Both played straight and subverted.
- Fighting Trilogy
- Government Agency of Fiction: Rapid Rescue Force. The CIA appears here as well, in Blue Rainbow.
- Gratuitous Foreign Language: Appears in the work every now and then.
- Homage: To anime at large, but mostly to Lyrical Nanoha and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds. (See the Shout Out section above for details.)
- Hyperspace Arsenal: The Tenshi Network, only accessible by Weissdrache.
- Magitek: In heavy use throughout the trilogy.
- Multinational Team / Equal-Opportunity Evil: For the heroes and villains, respectively.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: Gerard in Blue Eyes (Sexist beyond reason). Jin-Ho in Blue Rainbow and Blue Starlight (Overly "patriotic").
- Powered Armor: Both Gerard and Jin-Ho come equipped with these a la Iron Man in their climactic confrontation with the protagonists. The Infinity has an Infinite Stratos-sized Powered Armor in the final battle in Blue Starlight.
- The President's Daughter: Three of them: Akane, Ashley, and Nana. Though it's Ashley that fits this trope the closest in its literal sense, with her being the daughter of a high-ranking US Air Force officer.
- Shout-Out: Has its own page.
- Themed Harem: Every girl in Weissdrache's harem is a Magical Action Girl with a specific element, or in the case of Nana, a lack of it.
- Back from the Dead: Jin-Ho, though him being under control of The Infinity, this is technically not the same character anymore.
- Book Ends: Blue Eyes began with Stephan desiring to die alone by the Eiffel Tower. ''Blue Starlight' ends with Stephan dying in Nana's arms - near the Eiffel Tower.
- True Final Boss: The Infinity.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Stephan
- Kill Sat: The Infinity's Dyson Cannon, which functions as a Depopulation Bomb. The Starduster comes back as a weapon to be used against the Dyson Cannon.

Character Tropes (SPOILERS!)
Introduced in Blue Eyes
Weissdrache / Stephan Bleumer (technically, a clone of the original)
Weissdrache is the CEO of Solty-Tech Industries whose plan is to abduct Akane. It is eventually revealed that he intended to do this to extract her Herald-based energy and convert them into a power source for his Kill Sat, the 'Starduster'', and blow up the planet - himself included
.He constantly desired the approval of his father, who only sees him as a trophy. After learning about his being a clone of the original, he calls him out... with a plasma beam to the head.
- Adjusting Your Glasses: Type 3. He does this even in combat. Starting in Blue Rainbow, this doesn't trigger the glare as much.
- Badass Bookworm
- Blind Without 'Em: He is ostensibly nearsighted, so much that he needs his glasses a lot. Used by the Agents to their advantage to defeat him in ''Blue Eyes''.
- Blond Guys Are Evil: Not!
- Book One Final Boss: He isn't.
- Calling Your Attacks: Played with. He says absolutely nothing when he himself attacks, while he punishes opponents who call out their attacks by attacking them as they are just to call out their attacks.
- Cloning Blues: The real Stephan Bleumer is dead.
- Combat Pragmatist
- The Comically Serious: More prevalent during Blue Rainbow, most prevalent during his interactions with the Agents.
