->''"The fate of our world hinges on those six men... God help us all."''
-->-- '''Optimus Prime'''

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6366459/1/Mighty_Morphin_Mecha_Rangers Mighty Morphin Mecha Rangers!]]'' is a fanfic written by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1489063/Thaeonblade Thaeonblade]]. It is a MegaCrossover, featuring characters from various franchises, including ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', ''Anime/TheBigO'', ''Anime/ZoidsNewCentury'', ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'' and [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters many others]].

The story takes place in [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Angel Groove]] which is administred by [[Anime/YuGiOh Seto Kaiba]] and he entrusted [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Simon the Digger]], [[Anime/TheBigO Roger Smith]], [[Anime/ZoidsNewCentury Bit Cloud]], [[Anime/VisionOfEscaflowne Van of Fanelia]], and [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji Ikari]] as the protectors of the city, by blackmailing them into the job. Without means to refuse, they join forces to defend the city, which [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} seems]] [[TownWithADarkSecret to have more]] [[IncrediblyLamePun than eyes meet]].

The story has thirty chapters so far and also a spin-off, the [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7525815/1/Mighty_Morphin_Mecha_Rangers_Parallel_Works Parallel Works]], which details the backstory of the plot and many characters. It is drawing to the end of what the author has dubbed "The first season."

Character Sheet in the works: ''[[Characters/MightyMorphinMechaRangers]]''
----
!!''Mighty Morphin Mecha Rangers!'' contains the following tropes:
* AscendedExtra: Several minor characters have larger roles than in their source anime with [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Hikari Horaki]] as the most obvious example.
* AdaptationalBadass: The main team, Kaiba himself and even much of the side cast show shades of this.
** Some villains count as well: Asuka is basically TheDragon to [[CodeGeass Lelouch]] alongside Zero [[spoiler: (implied to be Suzaku)]].
** [[spoiler: Lelouch himself later [[MindRape mind rapes]] Reedman]]
* AIIsACrapshoot: The new Jet-Alone.
* AlternateHistory: As detailed in Parallel Works #5, the main differences start during the American War of Independence (also name Washington Rebellion as a continuity nod to Anime/CodeGeass) Benedict Arnold (and Benjamin Franklin) remain loyal to the independence movement and the slaves are freed to fight against the British, and the United States earns their independence with much more favorable terms. And Britannia emerges after a coalition of European countries defeated Napoleon.
** Minor in the grand scheme of things, but Nia joined the Dai-Gurren Brigade [[spoiler: without Kamina dying.]]
** The Autobots and Decepticons [[spoiler: awakened Adam and may have accidentally caused Second Impact. (Albeit Megatron was the one who accidentally awakened Adam.)]]
* AndIMustScream: Deathwing is angry because he was caught in the Second Impact and trapped inside the Earth, while being forced to hear Series/{{Barney|and Friends}}'s theme song during his confinement.
** [[spoiler: When he almost died, Shinji was briefly forced to listen to the city and the other rangers fall to the [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Zilla Pack]]]]
* {{Badass}}: Take your pick.

* BarrierWarrior: Shinji in Unit 01.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Pick a member from the team, really pick one.
* BigBadDuumvirate: [[spoiler: So far we have Gendo Ikari, Lord Genome, Kaworu, the Decepticons, and possibly that thing in Kaiba's basement.]]
** With the recent Parallel Works [[spoiler: perhaps we should add [[ModernWarfare Makarov]]?]]
*** While we're at it, let's add [[spoiler: Gato, General Shepard and Enoch]] and we have ourselves a party!
* BigBrotherMentor: Who else besides the mighty Kamina?
* BigDamnHeroes: Kamina and Gurren in the battle against Deathwing and [[spoiler: [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Heero Yuy]] in the battle against the zord]].
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: The Mecha Rangers and the Angel Groove Defense Force have to go up against various enemies that would most likely destroy the town ForTheEvulz...
** [[spoiler: BlackAndGreyMorality / GreyAndGrayMorality: ...but a lot of the major power players across the world, Kaiba included, seem to fall under this.]]
* {{Bowdlerise}}: In-universe, the story that Dorothy tells to her daughter about how robots gained sapience is modified to be kid-friendly.
* ButtMonkey: Shinji
** [[spoiler: Upon arriving in Angel Groove, Misato takes his place.]]
** Kittan and Rossiu for the Dai-Gurren Brigade
** [[spoiler: Euphemia for all of Britannia]]
* CoDragons: [[spoiler: Asuka and Suzaku/Zero appear to be this to Lelouch.]]
* TheCameo:Harry Dresden, Monkey D Luffy, Detective Conan, and various others get mentioned.
* [[spoiler: ColdBloodedTorture: Shinji gives Deathwing a good bit of this that wouldn't be out of place in [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion his own series]].]]
* CombiningMecha: All of the main mecha combine into the [=MechaLord=] and it keeps combining with Gurren and Kaiba's Blue Eyes White Dragon jet.
** Is anyone ''really'' surprised that a fic with TengenToppaGurrenLagann and other japanese mechs based on Power Rangers has combining mecha?
* CrapsackWorld: To put it lightly.
* CreepyChild: The Black and White little boy that torments Shinji from chapter 7 through to chapter 10. [[spoiler: He comes back when Shinji nearly dies in chapter 22]]
* CurbStompBattle: The entire second-half of the Deathwing crisis ([[spoiler:which eventually culminates with [=MechaBreakerLord=]tearing the Dragon's humanoid form apart...AFTER HE BARELY SURVIVES A GIGA DRILL BREAKER!]])
** ([[spoiler: Blackout vs Eva Unit 03 and an entire US army base armed with tanks and mobile suits, guess who wins?]])
** Britannia-backed Germany (lead by the Baroness and [[AxCrazy Dilandau]]) against Luxembourg. [[spoiler: Then they discover that Luxembourg has a [[LetsGetDangerous Planet Buster]]. It doesn't work.]]
** Lagann and the [[OriginalCharacter Homodrone 01]] versus two Jet Alone robots...really guess!
** [[spoiler: Decepticon Blackjack vs Autobot? Ultranus]]
** [[spoiler: What does Yugi do when he first meets Spacegodzilla? Mindcrush it of course!]]
** Thus far, the Regis MK. 5 versus everything that he fights other than a colony of ants
* DeconstructionCrossover
* DeconstructiveParody
* DespairEventHorizon: Shinji managed to stay next to it two times, but never passed it.
* [[DestructiveSavior Destructive Rangers]]: Every fight with an intruding monster ends with the district where the fighting took place completely WRECKED.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first five chapters of the story are very different in tone and writing style when compared to the rest of the story. This especially noteworthy in Chapters 1 through 3 that have more emphasis on comedy than action.
* TheEmpire: Britannia
* EpicFail: Mecha Lord's initial deployment against [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Ramiel]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Neither Kaiba brother approves of how Shinji is treated by his father [[spoiler: or Misato for that matter]]
* [[spoiler: EvidenceScavengerHunt: Roger and Simon began searching through old Angel Grove in search of clues pertaining to why their city is under constant attack.]]
* EurekaMoment: [[spoiler: Simon has a horrifying one while looking over the 'Cruel Angel Thesis' project and it's implications for Shinji]]
* TheFederation: The Earth Federation exists, though it tries to avoid issues between countries.
* GambitPileup: Kaiba has a plan, Gendo has a plan, Lordgenome has a plan, [[spoiler:Lelouch]] has a plan, [[spoiler:Zechs]] has a plan...
* {{Gorn}}: Not that much, but the violence is notably a bit more graphic when Shinji's the one doing it.
* GovernmentConspiracy: What the underground mines seems to be.
** [[spoiler: The Federation is secretly gathering a fleet near the moon with a large possibility of an attack on Angel Groove.]]
* GroinAttack: Shinji uses the horn of Unit-01 to strike the crotch of Cloverfield. [[ShareTheMalePain His teammates then get horrified for this]], though it was the [[CombatPragmatist only way]] he could see to destroy the creature.
* HandWave: Some minor issues such as how the pilots all end up in the same cockpit sometimes is told off with awesomeness or nobody even cares enough to ask.
* HiddenDepths: Kaiba initially seems like his [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries abridged self]], but gradually turns out to be as much a ChessMaster as his canon self.
* HotSpringsEpisode: At the end of Chapter 27.
* HomoeroticSubtext: Thrown in as a joke between Van and Bit; Simon and Shinji; Yugi and Kaiba[[spoiler: ;Lelouch and Shinji]]
* HumongousMecha: Of all different shapes, sizes and types.
* IronicEcho: During the battle with Deathwing, Shinji basically throws his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech back in his face.
* IWasToldThereWouldBeCake: How Kaiba tricked Simon into joining. Simon claims that in the underground village he's from, people will die for a cookie.
* {{Jerkass}}: Kaiba is the most obvious example, but there are a few others.
* KickTheDog: Plenty on all areas of the alignment chart.
** Kaiba loves to tick off the rangers, defense force and Mokuba.
** Rossiu is the favorite punching bag for Simon and Kamina.
** Shinji against almost every monster that the ranger have fought [[spoiler: and even punches out a reporter...given that she was asking for it.]]
** Emperor Charles to everyone that he views as inferior. So this means everyone including his own knights and children.
* KirkSummation: Aina to Misato shortly after the latter lays a MotiveRant on Hikari, showing WHY Misato's justifications simply are NOT enough to cover what Shinji's gone through because of [[ManipulativeBastard Gendo]]. Misato appears seemingly unfazed, but the author has indicated the may be further ramifications of the incident to come.
* LargeHam: Lots, due to the nature of the fic, but Deathwing excels everyone.
** [[spoiler: In the battle against Cyclopisis, everyone, even more stoic characters like Roger and Heero turns into hammy hotbloodeds.]]
* LetsGetDangerous: Consider this the subtitle of Chapter 22. [[spoiler: Shinji, Hitomi, Bit and Yugi are all shining examples as to why.]]
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: This is a MegaCrossover after all.
* LudicrousGibs: The aftermath of the battle against Cloverfield.
--> '''Roger''': "[[SpoofAesop That's why you don't turn enemies into blood pools!]]"
* [[spoiler: MadScientist: Roger Smith may have been this in a previous 'life']]
* MakeMyMonsterGrow: Used to either summon and/or strengthen the MonsterOfTheWeek.

* MexicanStandoff: An eight-way example in chapter 19.
* MindScrew: Getting inside Shinji's head in later chapters.
** Also Hitomi.
*** [[spoiler: And Roger]]
--> "[[LampshadeHanging Time for some thinly veiled foreshadowing...]]"
* MonsterOfTheWeek: So far we've had [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Ramiel]], [[Film/{{Cloverfield}} Clover]], [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Deathwing]], [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Cyclopsis]], once (while Shinji was unable to fight), the other four Rangers had to fight a separate enemy on their own, [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Kenzo the Train Horse]], [[Anime/{{FLCL}} Brittle Bullet]], [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Jet Alone]], and a pack of nuclear dinosaur hybrids [[spoiler: cloned from Franchise/{{Godzilla}} and [[TheLandBeforeTime the Sharptooth]]]]
* MoodWhiplash: For one moment we have antics that can rival any [[TheAbridgedSeries abridged series]], silly comments and so. And another, it's reminded that is a CrapsackWorld, guarded by a WellIntentionedExtremist, people dying like animals almost parelling a CosmicHorrorStory.
* MotiveRant: Misato to Hikari, about what and why Nerv is necessary and allowed, to justify what happened to Shinji. However, see ShutUpHannibal below.
* MsFanservice: Yoko and occasionally one of the other females. [[spoiler: Like Euphemia]]
* MysteryMagnet: Why giant monsters and other powerful enemies keep attacking Angel Groove.
** [[spoiler: Roger and Simon eventually chose to explore the ruins of old Angel Grove to find answers about Enoch and the substance Neutron-Plutonium]]
* NebulousEvilOrganization: SEELE
* TheNeedsOfTheMany: Misato's defense of Nerv. No one buys it.
** Roger, Van, Bit, Heero, Aina, the entire Defense Force, Rossiu, the Dai-Gurren Brigade, Noriko and even Kaiba all take turns destroying Misato's attempts to use this logic to put Shinji at fault for not going back to Nerv.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Deathwing deals one to Shinji in Eva after he defeats Mecha Lord.
** Deathwing's beatdown extended to each and every member of the team. But Shinji got a second far-worst one for throwing a knife in his eye and Deathwing didn't take it well at all.
** After Kamina joins the fight, Mecha Lord returns the favor to Deathwing by pulling the dragon in half.
** Cyclopsis deals three different beatdowns to the rangers before they manage to beat him. Including breaking a Giga Drill Breaker and throwing the pieces back into Gurren Lagann; Using debris from the battle to overcome the newly upgraded Unit 01; Stabbing Escaflowne with it's own sword; Telepathically bludgeoning Liger over and over again; and beating Big O so badly that parts of it's armor was destroyed and limbs didn't work correctly.
** [[spoiler: Berserk Eva vs Zilla Rex]]
* OracularHead: ([[spoiler:Optimus Prime]]) The big question is how he got there.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: The Rangers fight them mostly one at a time, here are the most notable:
** The Kraken from ''ClashOfTheTitans'' who ends up flooding a good chunk of the city by EMERGING FROM THE GROUND.
** The most recent was actually a dragon, Deathwing destroyed part of the Europe during his descent and walk to Angel Groove.
** [[spoiler: As a result of upgrades or gained powers from their many adversaries, each ranger is now an embodiment of destruction.]]
* PetTheDog: Kaiba's entire relationship with the Dai-Gurren Brigade and other escapees from the underground mines.
* [[spoiler: ParanoiaFuel: Invoked with the infiltration of the [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt Demon Sisters]] since they can disguise themselves as anyone. Poor Rossiu is even shot by [[ProperlyParanoid Heero]] when the latter suspects him of being a succubus.]]
* RedshirtArmy: Kaiba bought his own defense force and they usually get their asses handed to them. But considering that they're volunteers...
** They're slowly becoming a BadassArmy, though, as their supporting roles in relation to the Rangers increase.
* RoboticSpouse: Dorothy. She even has a daughter.
* ShoutOut: Lots and lots!
** [[spoiler: Two similar speeches spoken in the battle against Deathwing take ques from the final battle in the second TengenToppaGurrenLagann movie]]
** [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Red Spy's]] description of the [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt Anarchy Sisters]] to Kaji plays out very similar to the "Meet the Spy" Trailer.]]
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: Gordon Ramsay (yes, ''that'' [[Series/KitchenNightmares Gordon Ramsay]]) believes this.
* SociopathicHero: Shinji has tendencies to be one, even scaring his teammates.
* TakeThat: Kaiba smashes copies of ''Film/TheNeverEndingStory 3'' to vent his anger.
** During the battle with Ramiel, he destroys a bunker of 4Kids' executives.
** [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Nerv]] has recently become a favorite target for characters to tear apart for ethical, moral or even pragmatic screw-ups and methods.
* TheTeam: The Rangers:
** TheLeader: Simon
** TheLancer: Shinji
** TheBigGuy: Van (Personality wise and that he is the most vocal about his strength)
** TheSmartGuy: Bit (Everyone has shades of this, but Bit is the more obvious)
** TeamDad version of TheFace: Roger (Acts as the voice of reason and is pretty much the much sociable ranger)
** GuestStarPartyMember: Rather than a permanent SixthRanger, we've had a Sixth Ranger Of The Week every so often. In order: [[GurrenLagann Kamina]], [[Anime/YuGiOh Seto Kaiba]] (using his Blue-Eyes White Jet), and most recently, [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Heero Yuy]]. It looks like Kaiba's settled for Heero as the SixthRanger, he even blackmailed him for formalities sake.
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler: Heero Yuy]] is this or a DefectorFromDecadence [[spoiler: considering he used to work for [[ModernWarfare Zakhaev and Makarov]].]]
** [[spoiler: Euphemia for her "Kill the Japanese" episode even though...]]
* TookALevelInBadass: Shinji takes several under guidance from the other rangers and Kamina. In fact, it would be easier to list the number of people who haven't taken at least one level in badass in this story.
** The Defense Force takes a level in the fight against Cyclopsis.
** Nia, Leena, Hikari and Hitomi all took classes in badass and passed with flying colors.
** Who can forget Kaiba himself?
** Lelouch effortlessly wards off an attack from an enraged Hikari and is shown to be much more physically and martially threatening though he's more threatening intellectually.
* TownWithADarkSecret: There should be a reason why those things keep attacking Angel Groove, right?
** [[spoiler: It's not the town that has a dark secret, but the entire area]]
** [[spoiler: Simon and Roger discover that the secret may have gone on for several years and involved several projects which involved Kaiba's father]]
* VillainTeamUp: The bad guys from each series join forces against the Mecha Rangers.
* VirginSacrifice: Some cultists tried to sacrifice Nia to the Kraken, apparently was Rossiu's idea. It didn't please Simon.
* WarisHell: As the Defense Force is comprised of veterans from the Universal Wars or otherwise, they all share stories and accounts that have this trope as the common message.
* WhatTheHellHero?: Misato's reaction to Shinji's adamant refusal to rejoin Nerv. [[spoiler: No one in Angel Groove holds it against him.]]
* {{Zeerust}}: The plot takes place in 2015 and there is already colonization of the Earth's orbit but the culture seems to be early 2000.
** Possibly due to the damage from Second Impact and all of the conflict from the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Universal Wars]]
