Playing With: Original Generation
Basic Trope: In a Massive Multiplayer Crossover, a new character is added who is just as important as the others.
  • Straight: In a Cross Over between Evilzulgo and Nigo, heroes Alice and Bob join forces with Sixth Ranger Colin.
  • Exaggerated:
    • An entire new universe, populated with hundreds of new heroes, villains and creatures, is set up for the Cross Over.
    • The creators make a whole new Five-Man Band, since it worked with Kyosuke, and Sora.
  • Downplayed: ???
  • Justified: The Cross Over takes place in a universe or location that both Evilzulgo and Nigo are traveling to in order to trade with the people already living there. Of course one or two of the natives will have major roles.
  • Inverted: Two series start out as a Cross Over, then split apart. Captain Colin appears in both.
  • Subverted: In the Cross Over, Colin turns out to be a Decoy Protagonist...
  • Double Subverted: ...then promptly steals the show when the Bigger Bad turns up.
  • Parodied: Colin is an insufferable Scrappy, even to the canon characters. Eventually, he contributes nothing to the plot.
  • Zig Zagged:
    • There are multiple story threads (or even multiple games), not all of which feature original characters. One thread might even ignore the series involved in the crossover to be set entirely in the newcomers' universe instead.
    • The original crossover has several original main characters, each of which becomes a mainstay for any one of the involved series or never shows up again.
  • Averted: Only previously-canon characters are a part of the Cross Over.
  • Enforced: The fans are a notorious Broken Base. Having a new hero to focus on prevents arguments between the two fandoms.
  • Lampshaded: ???
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed: Colin's presence causes tension between Alice and Bob.
  • Reconstructed: ... But eventually they settle into a Power Trio with Alice as Ego, Bob as Id and Colin as Superego.
