Characters Roleplay YMMV
Super Hero Taisen
All ready to kick your ass into next Tuesday.
Super Hero Taisen
(originally based on the
film of the same name
) is a tokusatsu-based RPG, much in the same vein as
, and it has a very similar setting. Unlike Henshin Heroes, Super Hero Taisen has so far had an episodic format, with only interactions between the characters linking the episodes of the roleplay together.
It has a lot more expansiveness with it's hero choices, allowing toku-like heroes from anime (namely from
Tiger & Bunny
) to be played along with the more traditional selection of
Tropes: Action Girl: Manami Mizushima, Yuki Kashiwagi, Atsuko Maeda, Nemo, Rebecca Valiant, and the list continues to grow. Always Chaotic Evil: Phantoms, Worms, Fangires, Grongi, Orphnoches, etc. Averted with Kaori's mom, the Shark Fangire, and Kaori Tsubasa (who's only half-Fangire) herself Anachronic Order Badass Biker: Kamen Riders, obviously Badass Crew: Most Sentai teams and the Wild Lance Irregulars. Bruce Wayne Held Hostage: Rebecca was at a bank pre robbery with Gunleon. The robbers didn't put up much of a fight City of Adventure: Akihabara, at least when you're an Akibaranger (or any otaku really). Combining Mecha: It wouldn't be Super Sentai without them! Continuity Reboot: The original site was made around early 2012, the same time (the roleplay forum's namesake) was released, and even had a similar plotline. The site was abandoned not long after its creation, but it was rebooted by the original creator of the forum, and given a new mythos. Kamen Rider X Super Sentai Super Hero Taisen Cool Old Guy: Retsu Ichijouji, the original Space Sheriff Gavan. Death by Origin Story: Ryu Terui's family, Doctor Isaka/Weather Dopant, Lily Shirogane, the previous Gao Silver, Yumeria Moegi's mom, and Sokichi Narumi . Maybe Demonic Possession: A fairly lighthearted example involving Den-O with the Taros and Zeronos with Deneb Evil Counterpart: Dark Kiva to Kiva Finishing Move: Just about everybody has one or more of these. Gender Flip: Many of the suits originally worn by males in their respective shows are now worn by females in the game. Strangely the reverse has yet to occur. Henshin Hero Hey, It's That Guy!: With the Celebrity Face Claim rule in play this is a given. AKB48 idols Sayaka Akimoto, Minami Takahashi, Yuki Kashiwagi, Atsuko Maeda, Mayu Watanabe, and Mariko Shinoda are an alien wizard, a master thief, a pervert-hating samurai, a Space Sheriff, a Mad Scientist Hikkikomori, and a wealthy swordswoman respectively. Gackt plays a Kamen Rider once more, but this time a villainous one. The Souffle Girl is now a Magician whose magic is no mere illusion. Barney Stinson is pretty much himself, but with magical powers. Interpol Special Agent: The Go-Busters are this now. Kill and Replace: The MO of the Phantoms and the Worms Law of Chromatic Superiority: For the Sentais, Red is typically leader by default with Gold and Silver often the sixth ranger who gets cooler stuff than the others. Loads and Loads of Characters: It's quickly becoming this with the unlimited amount of characters allowed to each player. Make My Monster Grow: A typical tactic for Sentai monsters. Massive Multiplayer Crossover Mega Corp.: Smart Brain is pretty much this world's equivalent to Apple. No word yet on whether or not they have competition with Google. The Mentor: Gavan to Gavan [Type G] and White Wizard to Wizard Monsters of the Week: Keeping to true toku fashion, monsters introduced in one thread most likely won't make it to the next. Our Vampires Are Different: Fangires Time Machine: Several, usually in the form of a train. Tokyo Is the Center of the Universe: Of course being a toku RP, the majority of events take place in Japan. Transformation Trinket: A given if you're a Kamen Rider or Sentai Senshi. Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: The current situation for a few characters most notably Kaori Tsubasa aka Kamen Rider Kiva. World of Badass: So far, it's pretty much this. With all the heroes running around, it makes sense.
