and Alternate Continuity
fanfic. Sakido thought that she would die, that the her fate was sealed at that moment. However, she was wrong...

This fanfic contains examples of:
- The Alliance: The many worlds seem to be under one of these. It's even called this
- Anyone Can Die: Chapter 8 pretty much established this. turns out it was played with
- The Atoner: Sakido feels this way towards Buwaro, which motivates her to seek out Medius.
- Action Girl: Sakido. All female Rebirths may count as well
- Ambiguously Human: The Rebirth named Tsukasa. Its strongly implied that he isn't human.

- Big Good: The Master seems to be portrayed as this.
- Item Crafting: Shun's Rebirth ability is this, except limited to bullets only.
- Broken Bird: Sakido
- Calling Your Attacks: So far, all Rebirths (except Sakido) seem to be fond of this
- Came Back Strong: All Rebirths are this, due to their new bodies. This is very much on purpose
- Crystal Prison: What Sakido wakes up in when she is turned into a Rebirth, though she easily gets out, as those things are more like Crystal Prisons, minus the Prison part.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Sakido. Shun seems to imply that this was what his past was like. Word of God says that all Anti-Hero type Rebirths tend to have this
- Eldritch Abomination: The Angels in Vigrid, much to the Rebirths' chagrin.
- Elemental Powers: Certain Rebirths have this (note that some Rebirths have shades of more than one power. The known ones are:
- Enigmatic Empowering Entity: The Master watches over the ENTIRE Multi-verse, whilst giving anyone it deems worthy of becoming a Rebirth a new life and awesome powers. Also, a villainous example is the mysterious cloaked figure that Maleficent speaks to
- Fun with Acronyms: UniT stands for 'Universal Terminal'
- Gory Discretion Shot: Just as Nightmare is about to tear Maleficent apart (literally) the scene shifts, though we still see the end result.

- Fish out of Water: Poor, poor Sakido. Hope her mind remains intact with all the culture shock she's going through
- Guardian of the Multiverse: The Master and its Rebirths are this.
- The Heartless: This fic has elements of Kingdom Hearts. Of course they'd be there. Also, Maleficent seems to be creating a new type of monster
- How Do I Shoot Web: Averted for most Rebirths, as the knowledge on how to use their new powers are implanted into their minds when they first become Rebirths. Played with in Sakido's case, as the knowledge she received was incomplete.

- Light Is Not Good: The Angels in Vigrid just scream this.
- Macross Missile Massacre: Shun's Final Salvo
- Noodle Incident: Shun seems to have had one of these with Neo. Also, it seems that Shun's team prior to meeting Sakido had a noodle incident that involved Umi and some person who was a real Sir Swears-a-Lot. Needless to say, Shun tries to be VERY careful of swearing strongly around Umi.
- Plot Armor: Subverted as early as chapter 8. See also Anyone Can Die. Reveals to have been subverted in a rather strange way in chapter 10
- Portal Network: Shun claims the people living within the Alliance use these.
- The Mentor: Shun plays this to Sakido, whilst mixing various traits of several mentor types.
- Red Baron: Rebirths seem to have these, with some of them being Names to Run Away From Really Fast, while others are more like an Affectionate Nickname. The known list so far includes:
- Shun Hayami: The Black Devastator

- Neo Lumino: The Chaotic Unbalance
- The Multiverse: The overall setting of the fic.
