- The Tropeverse: a fictional world that's literally made of TV Tropes. The Hollywood Atlas is the atlas. Hollywood History is the history. Etc. The characters are all Everyone Calls Her Trope Name. In particular, the TV Tropes Superhero Team actually is a superhero team. When writing stories, things should be described in terms of tropes as much as possible.
- Fiction in Collision: a Massive Multiplayer Crisis Crossover. A Metafictional disaster — fictional worlds are colliding with Real Life and each other. The results are somewhat like Torg, with bits of fictional reality overlaying bits of Real Life, and somewhat like Rifts, with lots of Cool Gates allowing fictional characters to invade Real Life and each others' worlds. Includes whatever fictional works you want.
- Superworld: some sort of Negative Space Wedgie turns every human being on Earth into a Flying Brick. The social consequences are explored in detail.

- The Power of Rock takes several different forms.
- Death metal is very useful for summoning.
- Fast and well-executed guitar solos have been known to melt peoples' faces.
- And 80s metal can change the physical properties of things. (The part I'm shouting out to starts at 4:12.)
- Taiko drumming has been known to cause seismic activity, as have slap bass and timpani solos.
- The most skilled turntablists can manipulate time - in small amounts (e.g.: Backspinning a record can push the clock back about 30 seconds, but that might be all you keep a bandmate from getting killed, or get a second chance at a battle you lost).
- Spirituals (from multiple cultures) can be used to contact the dead.
- Throat singers can communicate with animals.
- Zeusaphone (a sound-producing tesla coil) music has a pretty predictable use.
- ... As do vuvuzelas, but they're banned from competiton and primarily used in street fights.
- And finally, gospel is considered a complete Game Breaker and is banned from normal use, but the things that the greatest choirs have been able to do in combat is the stuff of legend.
