Super Cosplay War Ultra is a doujin fighting game released by "Team FK" for the PC. Since 2004, it's undergone numerous updates with new characters, game modes and stages. The most current edition is "Genkai Toppa" (限界突破). In a nutshell, think of Pocket Fighter, but taken Up to Eleven on the fanservice (but not only that fanservice) scale.Some time ago in a place called "FK City", a mysterious explosion happened and there was a chemical leak. Citizens got sick from it, but since everyone got better, the incident's Hand Waved... that is, until a bunch of them received the supernatural ability to transform into characters and elements from various anime, manga, films and video games and began using these powers under the monniker "Super Cosplayers (SCs)". But, like with any god-given powers, some decided to use it out of selfishness, creating the anti-government group "The BR". No thanks to this power, the military couldn't stand a chance; luckily, some SCs fought alongside the government and managed to stop The BR.The characters (and the series they cosplay) include:
Specifically of Super Robot Wars: first, the logo holds the same style as SRW; second, the bosses are entirely based on SRW's Original Generation; third, well, wouldn't you expect LOADS of mecha-based franchises, covered in SRW previously, to be covered here?
Artificial Stupidity: CPU characters will frequently try to use their supers even if they don't have the gauge full enough, which just causes them to flinch instead.
Ascended Extra: Genkai Toppa makes Ziro and Ogi playable from the very start.
Non-character example: in order to participate in a special "Extra Battle", have the timer run out during the mode selected. In Genkai Toppa, there's a separate mode for this one: "Another Battle Royale".
Author Appeal: Would you expect Suneo and Giant, who are huge Doraemon fans and who inserted baddassified versions of Suneo and Doraemon into their previous project not to leave a mark in SCWU? Well, you wouldn't. So that's why Giant's here.
Author Avatar: AMNC P, G. Suneo note "G", in this case, stands for "girl", since this character's designer is male), SWW, Sean, Giant, OS Feng... well, let's just say "plenty" and leave it here.
Back from the Dead: Alpha rips off Gil's Resurrection move, healing to full health after being KO'ed as long as he has at least one level on his super meter. Like Gil's Resurrection move, he can be hit in the middle of it so he only heals partially, but unlike Gil's Resurrection move he actually pushes the player away from him to make it harder to hit him.
Bare Your Midriff: A lot of cosplay outfits sport this (especially the Mecha Musume ones, like Rear and Zenga's,) but Erus, Amiro, Giant, Kay and OS Feng do this as part of their standard outfits (though in Giant's case, it's more about him being too fat for his shirt.)
Clumsy Copyright Censorship: Some of the actually existing characters (which is, not cosplays) will have their eyes covered by a black rectangle. Most obvious examples are Super Astro Man Z during his Astro Boy state (intro and win pose), as well as Giant's ending, which has everyDoraemon character but Giant himself clipped out.
Expy: Considering the cosplay theme, everyone, to one or another degree, is this. Sometimes, it goes far enough to even use the original character's voice samples.
The Four Gods: Alpha's moveset utilizes the appearance of the RyuKoOh and KoRyuOh from Super Robot Wars Alpha, but also adds in the less-than-known BuJakuOh and JakuBuOh from the "RyuOhKi Denki" manga.
Gainaxing: Every girl with breasts will have their boobs bounce.
Also played straight in real time during the Battle Royale modes, where a maximum of eight characters fight on one stage simultaneously (something rarely seen outside of Guilty Gear Isuka and Infinity Cat).
Nintendo Hard: So you beat the story mode, including Zenka and Alpha? *Insert Slow Clap* Now go beat the Another Battle Royale, if you can.
No Ending: In many cases, specifically if you beat Another Battle Royale or the regular game with the mook characters.
No Fair Cheating: Want to play one of the boss characters in 1P mode? Have fun in Another Battle Royale mode, which is the only mode you can play with them. Oh, and Another Battle Royale mode makes you fight 2-4 non-mook characters at once and up to 6 characters per match (until you're fighting 4 mid-bosses and two of the final bosses,) while usually giving you the weakest of the mooks for a partner.
Perfect Play AI: Shin-Z. There are only two weaknesses in his AI: Frequently trying to use supers when he doesn't have enough EX bars for it (which is an AI weakness for most characters, anyway,) and occasionally trying to Shun Goku Satsu a character who's been knocked down.
Playable Menu: As you start a single-player game, you have to choose one of the sub-modes. How? By kicking the other cosplayers.
Pun-Based Title: Super Robot Wars -> Super Cosplay Wars. It even mocks the logo for the heck of it.
Amiro also counts, except being a modified one: her mallet projectile, as well as the non-super laser beam are fired out not instantly, but with a delay, and definitely not via the usual "quarterpad+punch" pattern. The Shoryuken-like attack, however, keeps the tradition.
Asura has Hurricane Kick and Shoryuken-type specials that he'll abuse like there's no tomorrow.
Spiritual Successor: To Fighters Kyodotai by the same team which also features over-the-top cast and settings, as well as lots of references to anime and videogaming culture. Moreso to its' unfinished sequel, Fighters Kyodotai Flash.
Though there are a few exceptions, like Rear, Gigi, Ziro and the Battle Royale characters.
Toilet Humor: Super Astro Man Z and his laser blasters (a LOT bigger than Astro Boy's), which he literally pulls out of his asshole may qualify as an attempt at this.
Troubled Fetal Position: Ziro assumes this pose in his down animation, complete with thumb-sucking and even a "MAMAAAAA!" if it happened after a failed self-destruct attempt.
What Could Have Been: When you unlock all characters in Genkai Toppa, you suddenly get five empty slots. When you select these, however, the game will throw you to the title screen, which means there were supposed to be more new fighters in the game (otherwise, following the logic of the engine in Fighter Maker 2002, it wouldn't react anyhow).
The entire game originally supposed to be a sequel toFighters Kyodotai. A few of the elements that warped into SCWU are the music theme from one of the stages, Gigi (with completely different sprites and moveset, though) and Natuki Kageyama's voice samples which were later recycled for Amiro. Not to say about several interface elements. Of course, we will never know why Aoba didn't hit the SCWU roster...
Wholesome Crossdresser: A few characters have a crossplay outfit somewhere in their moveset. Notable examples include Erus, who only has one female character in her entire moveset and Chung, the Naruto cosplayer, who actually goes all out and does a Sexy No Jutsu attack for one of his attacks.
Ziro Secret Service: To the extent that just about EVERYTHING he does is actually done by his henchmen.
He even uses one of his henchmen as a meat shield when he blocks.
