I am a student in informatics. Aged 23. I like fighting games and roleplays, but also strategy and card games (Magic: The Gathering or Yu-Gi-Oh! for example). I love creating original characters, though I am prone to expy-ing before I get to use (massive) Divergent Character Evolution. I'm sometimes a real motor-brain when it comes to useless things like creating move lists for Original characters in roleplays. I'm French but I hate it.
Also, I need a link to check out my PMs, so I suppose I might put a link here just so everyone can have access to PMs without having received a new one.

  • Curtis Axel: Now if only he had mic skills and an actual name for his Finishing Move, he'd be incredible.
  • John Cena: With of course the usual limitations about how he's justa Kid-Appeal Character who needs to get some of his facts straight. If WWE portrayed him as a more powerhouse face instead of him getting kicked 24/7 before going into his Five Moves of Doom...

My works:

Touhou Musouhen ~ Unprecedented Catastrophe

Burning Rhapsody

My main fictional Fighting Game. Knight Templar Villain Protagonist Yoi is on his way to a fighting tournament organized to fight demons.

Operation G

Another fighting fiction. Tournament organizer Ringoto Teisou is intent on creating God to change the world forever.

Japan 4000

Yet another fighting fiction. In year 4000, isolated Japan is prey to Youkai who have merged with human post-modern civilization. Mega Corp. RYU hastens the preparations of Burei Academy's school tournament.

Beyblade C-Square

A work with my brother, and a new page of Beyblade is turned.

Pokemon Ass Version

My Pokemon Red romhack, still under work.

Blissrune

A project originated from mixing up Blazblue and Terraria together as inspiration. Result is a world that is already halfway-corrupted, an oppressive government ruling over what's left of humanity, and revolutionary movements.

Speed Sounds

An original fiction, all happening within a City divided in two that progressively collapses due to wars and its selfish rulers when rebellion pops up.

SMNK

Now that I decided to remake this as a League of Legends custom champion series, the story is wiped out, with characters made to fit more into the universe. The acronym and most characters' names changed to no longer be all Japanese.

(unnamed work)

Pokmon meets Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. As weird as it sounds, Pokemon-likes playing Dodgeball is the trend there. Two stories take place, one with my lead character Ollias and one with my brother's lead character Fors. They're more linked by Big Bad Duumvirate Umber and Gondar, who more or less recycled the plot from the aforementioned movie and are expanding their corporate gym's domain.

Alternate Realm

A fiction which took the theories of a cataclysm the 21st December of 2012 and ran with them. All nations have been broken by private military contractors, and the Earth is now at the hands of six tyrannical corporations. The New United Nations rise to found the old world again, but even they are not so much better as the independent consortiums...

Tropes associated with Alternate Realm:

  • After the End
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Lots of them.
  • For Want of a Nail: What if a meteor fell on Wall Street on December 21st, 2012...
  • The Hero: There's a team labelled as "Hero Team", lead by Hiro Yazuchi, except he's not the sole heroic character.
  • The Mafia: Zodiac and its twelve branches are a new world-wide equivalent. Stereotypes wanted that the three memebers of the "Zodiac Team" are Capricorn, Aries and Taurus, who are respectively Italian, Japanese and Columbian.
  • Magitek: I have to put this everywhere.
  • No Name Given: The leader of the Future Team" is known as "No Name". Even his teammates have to call him by way of Hey, You!.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Several teams represent the very enterprise they hate so much.
    • The Hero Team are sponsored by Yi-An.
    • Both the Future Team and the Thundergate Club are sponsored by Zodiac, with the Thundergate Club being more or less blackmailed into it.
    • The New Order Team are sent on The Uriah Gambit by the New United Nations.
    • The Bad Guys of Sol are sponsored by Bluecoal, though contrarily to the above team they hacked their funding themselves.
    • To a more personal level, Youshi and Sho on the Hero Team are rivals, Mimiko is enslaved by Crimson, the Sandao Team's three members don't get along, and the Kamiya must tolerate Koji, their black-hearted serial killer of a cousin.
  • Time Master: The "Future Team".

Era Engine LINXX

Another obscure fiction, which centers around the rise of four unknown persons. Since nobody knows where they came from, it prompts people to rise to fame and attempt investigations, which result in them discovering far more than they attempted to.

Tropes associated with it:




Trivia:

M.U.G.E.N notes:

Since I am a character editor, I have a bunch of things here:

Tropes associated with my MUGEN stuff:

  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Some winquotes suggest that Ra-Ky, Musou-Ky and Nouwa-Sol are examples. Given who Musou and Nouwa are and Ra-Ky is an SNK Boss, it's not that surprising.
  • Call Back: EX Musou-Ky's movelist is full of callbacks to the early-production Musou-Ky, without the attacks that stayed. The names were changed, however, to Japanese, to fit Musou more.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Most avoid this, and there are some attacks called completely wrong. Ra-Ky calling "Stun Edge" when throwing out Kaizo Wave, for example. Nouwa-Sol is particular in that a variation of the called-out attack is performed.
  • Cloning Blues: The result of Palette Swap.
  • Combo Platter Powers: Musou-Ky, has a copy of Sol's Dragon-Installed Gun Flame as a Force Break, meaning he also gets fire on top of lightning. Was furthered with EX Mode attacks, some involve fire.
  • Confusion Fu: K-Lambda has 9 special moves, not including the four Darklight Charge followups, and the three air specials. He has an EX movelist which also swaps a bunch of moves, and AC mode only adds an Ebonthunder Wave followup and an air special. While non-EX movelists rely on various blockability with overheads and lows, EX movelist relies on timing to land grab frame traps.
  • Damn You, Muscle Memory: I modified many commands for my Sol and Ky clones, but also for the originals. There was one instance of me trying to find the command I affected to Ky's Vapor Thrust, having forgotten I had changed the command to rdp+S. Oddly enough, Robo-Ky (the original XX version) changed his commands to have the reverse of Ky's on Stun Edge and Vapor Thrust. Meaning that Ky and Robo-Ky only have one of Stun Edge and Vapor Thrust that follows the command from the source material.
    • Original Sol, despite returning to Sol's old moveset, doesn't use qcf+S/H as a command for Gun Flame, staying at the present qcf+P (to prevent overlap with Volcanic Viper). Instead, the Gun Flame projectile's speed is determined by whether or not you hold P when the projectile comes out.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: K-Lambda. Literally, his skin is darkish-purple-black-something. And the character splash is still Ky's.
  • Designated Villain: By virtue of being the Final Boss, Ra-Ky.
  • Evil Redhead: Ra-Ky's default palette is redheaded, despite the character splash being Ky's.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Clone Ky, as one of his post-battle win quotes attest.
    "You provide zero interest. Begone."
  • Glass Cannon: Musou-Ky. He takes nearly as much damage as Chipp, but his clean hits can make for damaging combos.
  • Informed Attribute: Ra-Ky being a jackass. His name literally means that when read in French, but his battle quotes, notably his win poses, are STILL the same as Ky's, though he doesn't use the more polite quotes. His post-battle win quotes though, let him express this.
    Ra-Ky: "That's the real deal! You ain't got the power, doof!"
  • Invulnerable Attack: Here and there, especially with the already-existent.
  • Jack of All Stats: The all-rounders are Sol and Ky.
    • After a change of computers, the only characters in the build are my 6 clones, K-Lambda being out.
  • Lag Cancel: Ra-Ky, during Patch 1.6, could cancel any normal into any other depending on whether he's on the ground or mid-air. Even on whiff, and at no cost whatsoever. This made him so stupid to play that this was removed following on the next patch.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Justice, but also Ra-Ky who has defense equal to hers, has big damage on his combos, and is possibly even faster than her.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: Averted. There are 16 characters in the roster, including any and all clones.
    • Even more on the "new" computer, which only has 6 characters.
  • Mega Manning: Present within my characters' movelists. Shout-Out moves are commonplace.
    • EX Musou-Ky uses this on his older self.
  • Mighty Glacier: Clone Ky is the closest fit to this trope. He is no slower than Ky aside from his lack of movement specials.
  • Nerf: Really present.
    • In Patch 1.4, Troll Badguile got his Gold Mode permanent Dragon Install removed; Clone Ky's Shutenbarai's damage was nerfed. Nouwa-Sol meanwhile, got most nerfs on the uppercut special and its followups.
    • Patch 1.5 saw more K-Lambda nerfs, with his ranbus doing less damage, Ebongleam Drill being much slower. Clone Ky's Habakiri got a good chunk of its damage cut off, and he stopped having 150% damage on lightning attacks while in Gold Mode. Musou-Ky's Mudouzan got its autoguard nerfed in that he still facetanks one third of the damage. Musouraiba's damage got nerfed too. This was compensated by the inclusion of his clean hits and Force Breaks.
    • Patch 1.6 nerfed K-Lambda further, nerfing his damage on supers some more (Ebonthunder Force in particular getting 1/3 of its power removed) and Gold Corrupted Jaw. Musou-Ky's command grab lost its clean hit unless in Gold Mode, where he hits clean with everything that can. EX Musou-Ky started its Call Back history by replacing his command grab with one that could infinite into itself if it wasn't techable instantly.
      • Patch 1.6.1 featured a Nouwa-Sol rework that made the character worse than ever in terms of direct damage output, with damage nerfs all-around and no super, except perhaps the double Force Break followups to the slash specials.
      • K-Lambda has been abandoned at this point.
    • Patch 1.7 nerfed Clone Ky with his change of destroy move. Rising Force being actuallly okayish and Hi no Kagutsuchi being just plain horrible by comparison is treated as a nerf. Musou-Ky had fixed hitboxes, meaning they too lean forward at the start of Reverse Crescent. Nouwa-Sol had the sidestep's D followup become a Force Break in exchange for the arrival of an overhead and a wallbounce on one of her attacks.
    • EX Musou-Ky lost many moves to make place for the Call Back attacks. Most of them being nerfed versions of existing moves. Denju is a nerfed Gun Flame, Jokyougaeshi is a weaker Guard Cancel than any of Baiken's own. Mou ii yagaru! is Rock It!, except the followups are Force Breaks. Juuden is Action Charge, except much slower and done on its own, not after specials. Mudo, a dash-through move, is worse than the normal Musou-Ky dash it replaces. 3.16 Dengekijuu is a slower, weaker Blockhead Buster. Uwadanken Keishiki, his uppercut, was nerfed from infinite material to being barely useable since it has almost no horizontal range, invincibility shorter than its startup, and is easily dodged by crouchers. Kiri has been repurposed, but it's a static version of Kongougama that won't do much even with invincibility to throws and his upper body. Arekuruu is a nerfed BRP from Order Sol. It wallbounces airborne opponents, but they can often tech before even hitting the wall. Hebigami is harder to use in EX Mode, its command being more complicated and it's only usable from the ground unless he's in Gold Mode. Rando Rakudo is a mixed from both its old iterations, taking the weaker points of both.
  • No Ending: Everyone just wins to a simple congratulation screen.
  • One-Hit Kill: Destroy moves, like in Guilty Gear. Nouwa-Sol, being an Order-Sol edit and being unable to use IK Mode, can use an instant-kill move with just full meter, but the move is extremely predictable (having a long startup, with almost half a second AFTER the superflash), fully blockable, easily interruptable, and doesn't hit airborne opponents.
  • Palette Swap: My characters are this.
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: Power creep made Ky one of the weakest characters in the game. With moves ported from different sources, Shout-Out special moves can be subject to this. Also, Ra-Ky goes through constant power creep each patch.
    • On extreme end of power creep, K-Lambda's Darkflash Overdrive, a Shout-Out to Brutal God Project. It dealt too much damage so, contrarily to other autocombos (especially his own), scaling was applied within the move so that the final hits would deal less damage.
    • On extreme end of power seep, Musou-Ky's Kongougama. Itself a Shout-Out to Kyo's Hikigane, the move is so slow it cannot be comboed into, had its short range kept even though Kongougama is done with a sword, and can't even be comboed from unless it hits clean, which is improbable considering the clean hit triggers when Kongougama hits someone slightly above Musou-Ky, while the move's only saving grace is evading low attacks. Even then, its clean hit deals 50% more damage, and even then it doesn't deal much damage.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Musou-Ky's default palette is pink-haired.
  • The Scrappy: To almost everyone who ever heard of my MUGEN, K-Lambda. Packed overly-fast normals, dealt high damage on supers with good utility, and had moves for everything. Though the annoying tendency to interrupt everything was the thing that came to light with the AI, one person treated him as more of a boss than Clone Ky.
    • His use of different sound effects made him this even for me, so I took him out of my lineup ultimately. He's still available.
  • Shoto Clones: A lot of them. Since even Chipp can be treated as one, that makes a lot. Counting the characters that are not shotos is easier.
    • Just Baiken, Musou-Ky and Clone Ky.
  • Shout-Out: So many moves, if it's not straight Mega Manning.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only female on my MUGEN's roster, Justice excluded, is Baiken. Unless you count Nouwa-Sol as female (Nouwa being female but Sol is male).
    • Now, count Baiken out, my present computer doesn't leave place for more than 6 characters.
  • SNK Boss: Justice is in here, but she is topped by Ra-Ky, who has defense equal to Justice's own, and pokes the size of hers, probably less punishable, all of that coming with great movement specials. Clone Ky is a milder example, but his Gold form is still a formidable opponent. Despite all of this, the AI has been taken off of every single character, meaning that for a skilled player, only Ra-Ky can pose a challenge.
    • Gold K-Lambda isn't dangerous, save for three moves. Corrupted Jaw becomes like Rugal's Gigantic Pressure super, and the second part deals so much more damage than the first, that the move alone deals around 45% damage.
    • Gold Troll has a 3-hit GURLFRIEND and regenerates.
    • Gold Musou-Ky's specials and supers hit cleanly all the time, including those that couldn't hit cleanly normally.
    • Gold Nouwa-Sol can use the followups to Reverse Side or Power Charge (but not the D one) to followup the slash command specials. Flame Distortion is also unlocked, but its only use is the constant tension regeneration since Nouwa-Sol doesn't use the Charge meter.
    • Gold Original Sol is in permanent Dragon Install, but isn't as cheap as Sol in that only his Volcanic Viper is enhanced.
    • Gold Clone Ky has high defense, regenerates life, and his unblockable specials come out in around around 20 frames rather than 45, making his pressure game much more deadly since you are likely to get caught in unblockable tech-into-my-invulnerable-grab trap setups.
    • Ra-Ky's normals have electric effects that give them superior range, up to a fullscreen far Slash. His Air Dust lays down a trap similar to Ky's Force Break. His kick specials have lengthy invulnerability windows, and his Stun Edge give him both space control and high movement depending on the version used. Plus, he forgoes Charge Stun Edge in favor of a copycat of Kaiser Wave from Rugal himself, and he can fire it like the 2002 version. Including the "glitches" (intentionally), except that the perma-lock is done when the fireball is fired point-blank with at least the second version. His supers boast full-screen range and absurdly-long invincibility frames.
      When Gold, he gains 50% damage on all hits but his EX Mode's Earthquake. His Stun Edges also hit three times.
  • Some Dexterity Required: Most aspects are denied. Only Sol and Musou-Ky's clean hits need aiming.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: Happens often since I have soundtracks from several games.
  • Talking to Himself: There are 6 Kys and 5 Sols, what do you expect?
  • Teleporters and Transporters: One of Clone Ky's standard intros involves him teleporting in. K-Lambda also teleports out in a special win pose against some other clones.
  • Troll: Troll Badguile. Some of his winquotes drive the point home. Singing "trololo", using a lot of Take That Stock Phrases, or Trash Talking is but the tip of the iceberg.
    "Don't hate on me cause I'm awesome!"
    "Ooooooowned!"
  • Twenty Minutes into the Future: Inverted with Original Sol, who has Sol's Guilty Gear moveset and mannerisms from "twenty minutes into the past". There is still one taunt left to remove.
  • Worthy Opponent: Ra-Ky has a random chance of having this for a win quote.
    "I got rolling there! Good one."

Stratego Legends notes:

You have seen it on my brother's page: we both play this game and experiment with it. We created a ton of new factions.

Tropes associated with whatever we are doing:

  • Action Bomb: Overpowered magic units can be used like this.
  • Anti-Air: The Anti-Flight ability. A unit with that ability instantly kills units that fly above (or should land on) it.
  • Anti-Magic: The Dispel Magic ability allows creatures to cancel any magic effect of magic units they battle, which is a slight modification ruling-wise from the original in which it only worked on Magic units you attacked (since Magic units couldn't attack before, the text had to be fixed).
  • Auto-Revive: Several units have a Death Curse that revives the unit when the curse is over (or worse, before).
  • Boring, but Practical: The units that have never been reworked are most often a case of this, never being reworked because they're simple. Monster Reborn always revived any one unit, Chuck Norris has always been that 10-force unit with Dispel Innate and an innate of his own that instantly destroys any unit he fights. On the other side, House of Cards has always destroyed itself upon being revealed, and Trojan Horse has always made the attacker instantly teleport into a space of their choice after beating it.
  • Game Breaker: Almost every single created faction, the exceptions being the Hiwauz and Veelenz (being extremely plain or complicated) and the N0obz and Nbz (who too often devolve into killing themselves). And even they have Game Breakers (ones that turn the game against them for the later ones at least).
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Notable with the setting-inspired factions.
  • House Rules: Shitloads. New abilities and naming conventions saw the light of day.
  • Instant-Win Condition: Destroying a castle always bring instant victory, but the Noobz and Nbz have several going against their units. Fake King and House of Cards notably destroy themselves when revealed, giving any enemy unit that fights them instant success in their attacks (or the game regarding the House of Cards).
    • And my remix of XEH Drive's Terrorist Action can end up so since it can force the opponent to destroy their own castle.
  • Joke Character: The Nbz and N0obz.
  • Loophole Abuse: A lot. Several factions had to be remade due to loopholes.
    • A specific example is SMnK's Teruki Tomoya, who had an ability that moved him by two spaces. It was Quickness, except with unlimited use, and he could attack during the opponent's turn. It caused several strict rulings: 1- This ability did have not to be used more than once per turn. 2- He had to not attack units during the opponent's turn. And this ability was still so broken (especially since Teruki is force-9) that it was the reason SMnK (yes, the entire faction) spent months under revision and ended up scrapped.
    • Issue brought up 15/04/2014 is the status of attacks against units with innates or maluses that instantly kill them (example: The Nubz' Fake King instantly kills himself when revealed, or Noobz' Pikachu who gives himself a malus of -2 when attacked in the case this malus has him go below zero force). Discussion remains on whether an attack counts as successful when the enemies kill themselves via effects during the attack or not, for innates like Berserk.
      • Fixed: Such attacks count as successes despite the unit not counting as destroyed by battle.
  • My Rules Are Not Your Rules: XEH Drive and Blissrune do not play by the rules.
    Their magic units can move (some even have mobility abilities) and attack, and they cancel innates, meaning they're immune to Dispel Magic. Also, their Death Curses aren't cancellable by simultaneous death curse activation (their curse forcibly overwrite any other curse), and they can be ended at will. They can also be activated whenever one of their allied units fights and replace it in the battle.
    Blissrune's castle Air Fortress Pegasus can move, and also has a limited form of the Fly action. Also, my XEH Drive remix's QMR Homasubi Branch doesn't net the opponent an insta-win when it's destroyed because its Curse prevents such victories. You can also sacrifice a unit at any moment to bring it back.
  • One-Hit Kill: One moment in particular had me use Oobers' Landorus to land a first-turn-kill unwittingly. But some other examples exist, like XEH Drive's Triple Trouble, which lets you instantly kill any unit.
  • Power Creep / Serial Escalation: The epitome of it in our quick-winning overpowered factions.
  • Redshirt Army: Tends to happen in gauntlet matches where factions like XEH Drive are teamed up with factions like the Noobz, who of course Can't Catch Up.
  • Set Bonus: Several units function this way. The Nbz invert this with set maluses (namely Fake-types revealing each other).
  • Switch Out Move: Nubz' Naruto Uzumaki and Noobz' Abra, respectively force-10 and force-2, attempt to do this. Naruto can be forced to cancel this move and gets a debuff for it, and Abra can (and most often will) end up letting the opponent take out one of your more valuable units of his choice.
  • Team Killer: The Nbz, notably the Fake-type units, have a bunch of this. And there's the self-Griefer Magic Waluigi Time.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Nbz' Choice Band gives +5 force and Berserk to the enemy that attacks it. Most often, the unit will be a hugeass juggernaut whose strength just fits this trope, enough to make some units from normal factions able to beat XEH Drive units in terms of raw strength.
  • Unstable Equilibrium: The Nbz' Fake-type units have bad effects if they're revealed, several of which involving revealing or destroying other Fake-type units, often leading to snowballing destruction until no Fake-type is left.
  • Uriah Gambit: Happens most often to replace Death Curses from underpowered factions.

    Notes about Fan Fic/Unprecedented Catastrophe: Is the main character a Gappy Stu? 
WARNING: Spoilers ahead! I proceed accordingly to the DitR Analysis page.

The Notes:

The Character:

  • He is an Author Avatar, despite the fact that he remembers very little, his ethnicity is still French.
  • He isn't well-versed in Japanese mythology, except of course the knowledge that he got from Perfect Memento in Strict Sense.
  • He arrives empty-handed. He gets hosted by Reimu for two weeks, and then he dies.
  • He has a lot of different emotions, the only one mentioned not to appear is cocky since he is new.
  • He doesn't worry about his life back home because he doesn't remember it.
  • Just like me, he is single, virgin, and bad with girls.
  • He only tries violence once before dying, and it doesn't even get here.
  • He can be shallow at times, but doesn't base anything on looks, weapons or rank; he just offhandedly respects everyone but Nouwa.
  • He likes swords, but only had sword training with Youmu. He makes a sword of lightning once, as symbolism for a ranged attack.
  • He becomes a youkai, when he dies and his ghost lingers.
  • The only thing akin to an avatar he gained is a spirit born of his desire for death, wishing to kill him.
  • He is not motion sick easily, but never goes at high heights to fly. One of his attempts at flight pre-death even fails resulting in injury.

The Gapping:

  • He was in the Hakurei Shrine when he was absorbed in a fluctuation of the Hakurei Barrier, and pulled away from it by Yukari so that the barrier could be repaired. Obviously, he was not intact.
  • Yukari's excuse for saving it was to avoid a breach in the Hakurei Barrier, as well as "training" to see what she could be able to pull out of inexistence.
  • He encountered Yukari once or twice as she attempted to finish her task of managing the lost soul.
  • The fic stars three other Gappies: Luke, who is an important secondary character and assists Reimu in resolving the incident, Dondeo, a man who holds a restaurant in the Human Village and was gapped before Luke. The third hasn't appeared yet.
  • I fully acknowledge the character as a Gappy.

The Journey:

  • The first thing he does is wander into the Forest of Magic. Because he is scared of Kanako. Despite being barely recovered from his harmful "gapping".
  • He begins the story injured. The injuries never get properly treated because they are barely visible and Reimu and Marisa were more worried about anchoring his soul to Gensokyo.
  • He marvels at the sights once, when heading for the Scarlet Devil Mansion in the very beginning of Chapter 1. And he has trouble adjusting to the fact he's in a fantasy world. In about 1 month, he showed signs of adjustment as well as old habits that didn't die yet.
  • Noone walks, he gets carried around to the Hakurei Shrine, and then learns to fly by himself. Exposition is made while stationary (read: at the Hakurei Shrine, while Reimu trains him).
  • Reimu isn't ultra-nice, being aloof and at times borderline angry, Marisa doesn't say "ze" so much. Sanae assists in the training and he's a major Tsundere with an S in tsun to her.
  • He needs a book for research and goes to the Scarlet Devil Mansion. First: he tries by himself. Second: the travel isn't harmless, even a trade of blows with Cirno breaks one of his arms. He doesn't borrow a book from Patchouli, instead having gotten the right to read any books without taking them, and she took a sip of his blood first. He drinks no tea at all. Flandre appears, and he is mostly responsible for the terror he experiences, thinking she's an Omnicidal Maniac while she's being a Creepy Child whose idea of a game involves a Spell Card that burns him in several places.
  • He can't go in the Human Village or Kourindou now because he's dead. The passage involving the Human Village is seen by Remilia's eyes, and as she visits zones "far too mundane for her", most buildings are wooden.
  • The Gappy doesn't need inventions: he hasn't got time for spiffy things in his quest of mentality change and adaptation. Nitori of course doesn't have infinite resources as the Kappa face a more technologically-advanced enemy.
  • He didn't visit Sanae while alive: she did at times during his training. And while she is jealous of Reimu's incident-solving record, she isn't a villain, instead being more of a friendly rival.
  • The conflict begins way before he's met everyone, though the incident actually begins weeks after the first spark of conflict.

The Incident:

  • There are two simultaneous incidents: both throwbacks to PC-98 games. Of course, Mima and Yumemi are not Always Chaotic Evil.
  • None is Gensokyo's "most destructive incident yet". In fact, Yumemi building too much is what sparks the incident resolvers towards destroying her things.
  • Mima has nocturnal fairies, while Yumemi uses drones. The incident resolvers can beat those with ease.
  • No conflict spreads all over Gensokyo (though Yumemi has a zone of influence between the Misty Lake and the foot of Youkai Mountain), the incident resolvers are not specifically hurried, but the destruction that occurs is described.
  • Only the gappy is hesitating, the incident resolvers have plenty of time, and some characters even take seats as villains and pick fights for the lulz. The gappy even fails when he goes gung-ho by himself, disappearing twice through the story (first time being his death), and he won't stop the Big Bad, Reimu will.
  • You are spoilered: REIMU RESOLVES THE INCIDENT! NO EXCEPTIONS!: The hero is defeated, and still comatose as Reimu does the important fighting.
  • He doesn't sacrifice himself because he is already dead. He is defeated normally and remains unconscious. He was afraid to die enough when bleeding to death in the Scarlet Devil Mansion.

The Ending:

  • Since he did not sacrifice himself, he just wakes up slightly injured but with the incident over.
  • He did not make any lives better, but his.
  • By that time, he hasn't sorted out his love life yet.
  • He obviously remains in Gensokyo, or rather, his actual home would be the Netherworld.
  • Yukari might gap someone in. Who the hell knows..?
  • The outside world's fate without the main character is brushed but not extended upon, since Nouwa mentioned a killing spree of which all victims had a link to the gappy.

The Tropes:

The Character:

  • Black Hole Stu: Even though his arrival attracts the most bored individuals, the incident involves other people separatedly of him. Also, he plays little part in Chapter 4, and utterly vanishes out of the spotlight at the end of Chapter 8.
  • Designated Hero: He's in no way presented as heroic, rather being presented as crazy, odd and with warped morals.
  • Instant Expert: Most of the training is done offscreen, and he succeeds, even though he's far from being expert in anything.
  • Marty Stu: So far, he seems to be the Anti-Sue type, as he's weak and unaccustomed to Gensokyo yet.
  • Mighty Whitey: Nope. So far, he sucks at danmaku and spouts off random Japanese, as well as being misunderstood due to Gratuitous Foreign Language abuse.
  • Teen Genius: He's 22 (evidently more, but how much?), and he knows much about Gensokyo because he's an Author Avatar of someone who did read the guides before the "gapping".

The Gapping:

The Journey:

  • Aborted Arc: Averted, but the Kudzu Plot is unconcluded in all aspects.
  • Anticlimax Boss: Averted, every fight has been a Hopeless Boss Fight.
  • Arc Fatigue: The fic is one single arc, even with the Kudzu Plot.
  • Genre Shift: Averted: the fic is about the action and adventure. Nothing else.
  • Infodump: The character read the guides, so he doesn't need it. Even though he only remembers part of it and sometimes acts Too Dumb to Live.
  • Magnetic Hero: Averted. He spends his time in different groups of people, and stays permanently with no one. He's picked up by Komachi when she goes investigate the incident, but she's the leader and he's the loose cannon.
  • Narrative Filigree: Sometimes, such as the description of Heaven.
  • Padding: I try to avert it, most long paragraphs are descriptions or tell someone's thoughts.
  • Prolonged Prologue: The prologue chapter is a little part of the fiction, but the incident is started at Chapter 6.
  • Random Events Plot: Averted: most things happen for a reason.
  • Strangled by the Red String: Averted: the romance is for later. Nobody even knows who is his love interest, though he has behaved oddly around Komachi, and probably Youmu as she remarked to her.
  • Those Two Guys: Averted: Marisa appears once with Reimu, but also Luke and Remilia. And then she makes a Face-Heel Turn.
  • Walk and Talk: In fact, everyone flies, but some characters talk despite the speaking never consisting of Infodump. The main character knows several things about how Gensokyo works. It's assumed you do.

The Incident:

  • Apathetic Citizens: The youkai mostly don't care, nocturnal fairies are attracted by the artificial night, and the cast definitely doesn't stay in place.
  • Ass Pull: None so far, I think.
  • Chickification: Nobody. In fact, Komachi and Youmu leave the main character to fight Nouwa because It's Personal: they could beat her one-on-one with relative ease.
  • Complete Monster: Averted with Nouwa: she's an ikiryo, a spirit that represents Wish Fulfillment. Since she has been made of rather obscure wishes (frustration, general anger, and suicidal urges), she rises up as an antagonist to erase the main character from existence, so she comes to an end with it.
  • Complexity Addiction: Averted: Nouwa is extremely straightforward. Her plan consists in:
    1- Find a way to erase the main character from existence.
    2- Use it to erase him.
    3- Cease to be as a result.
  • Deus ex Machina: So far, one: when the main character receives a Spell Card out of nowhere during his fight against Nouwa. It really was Sanae who "gave" him this card at his side by wishing for him to survive.
  • Distress Ball: Unused, except for the main character yet.
  • Dying Like Animals: Nobody other than the main character is dead.
  • Faux Action Girl: Averted. Even though Nouwa's weaker than most canon characters, she is a threat to the main character, much more so than everybody else.
  • Go Out with a Smile: The hero becomes a ghost because he didn't.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Averted.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Averted: the targets of Nouwa's ire were specific. The main character is the last.
  • Put Them All Out of My Misery: It is mentioned the hero did this by proxy: Yukari mentioned that Nouwa went on a killing spree in the Outside World, as it was one of the wishes that created her.
  • Shadow Archetype: Nouwa, though much differently than the average Gappy villain. It's an Invoked Trope.
  • Smooch of Victory: The main character is on a losing streak.
  • Stupid Evil: Nouwa is much more about Pragmatic Villainy. The Chaotic Evil way, though.
  • Villain Ball: None exposed so far.
