[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10370903/1/A-Fistful-of-Dragonite A Fistful of Dragonite]] is an [[Manga/OutlawStar Outlaw Star]] {{FanFic}} by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1483890/ Rassilon001]]. A re-telling of a familiar story, it strips away the space, aliens, magic, and tech and sets the same familiar characters in a wild western setting. Up and coming gunslinger Gene Starwind finds himself thrown headfirst into adventure in the search to make a name for himself. With wisecracking partners, beautiful damsels, mystical skinchangers, foreign assassins, and more besides. Pride and greed threaten to tear the frontier apart, and the lines quickly become blurred between doing what is legal, and doing what is right.

!!A Fistful of Dragonite contains examples of:
* AntiHero: Keeps trying to be one, but Gene and Jim really can't seem to do anything other than be properly heroic.
* BadassLongcoat: Gene's duster, but Jim also rocks one, as does Hilda.
* ChineseLaborer: Suzuka’s look is meant to evoke this.
* CoolTrain: Taken from Farfallus to Heiphong, and also the setting of a cool train battle.

* [[OneLastSmoke One Last Cigarette]]: Requested by Hilda as she (already dying) sacrifices herself to give Gene and Melfina a chance to escape. It proves useful in lighting some gunpowder barrels in the room she chooses to make her last stand in, making it also a TakingYouWithMe moment.

!!A Fistful of Dragonite contains examples of:
* AntiHero: Keeps trying to be one, but Gene and Jim really can't seem to do anything other than be properly heroic.
* BadassLongcoat: Gene's duster, but Jim also rocks one, as does Hilda.
* ChineseLaborer: Suzuka’s look is meant to evoke this.
* CoolTrain: Taken from Farfallus to Heiphong, and also the setting of a cool train battle.
* CrapsackWorld: Not exactly the nicest of settings, with corrupt army and unfriendly bandits. Then again, that may just be the unsettled frontier where the story takes place.
* {{Elseworld}}: Western style. Basically, the author stripped away the elements of space, aliens, tech and magic found in the anime while keeping to the core characterizations.
* EvilTwin: In this verse, Hitoriga to Suzuka, and thus female, eliminating a lot of awkward questions about ‘stealing faces’ and providing better explanation as to Suzuka’s presence in the western region.
* {{Flashback}}: Melfina recovers her memory this way, in bits and pieces.
* GunsAkimbo: Leilong fights this way, when he's not going the SwordAndGun route instead.
* {{Gunslinger}}.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Hamushi seems to be this at first, but drops the act when she [[spoiler:tries to kill Gene]].
* IndianMaiden: Aisha, though not nearly as meek as most examples.
* LargeHam: Colonel Hazanko, in keeping with his anime counterpart.
* MagicalNativeAmerican: Implied with Aisha, who proudly refers to herself as a Skinchanger, but does not seem to be able to back up her claims... at first.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Aisha’s skinchanging ability, if any, is showcased off-screen, and any witnesses killed quickly after seeing it. Whether or not she truly has magic is left to interpretation. WordOfGod is that this was set-up deliberately from the start.
* MythologyGag:
** Gene is called ‘Caster’ because of his QuickDraw skills.
** The code on the [[spoiler:safe in the Dragonite estate]] is the same as what was used to open Melfinas casket.
** Hilda blows herself up and takes others with her to her death, even spouting the same line she used in the original series.
** Harry and Ron's twin canons are called the 'Shangri La' and the 'El Dorado'
** Jim's horse is Ehferau, and later we find out Melfina has a pet cat named Gillium.
* [[OneLastSmoke One Last Cigarette]]: Requested by Hilda as she (already dying) sacrifices herself to give Gene and Melfina a chance to escape. It proves useful in lighting some gunpowder barrels in the room she chooses to make her last stand in, making it also a TakingYouWithMe moment.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Skinchangers, such as Aisha, able to call on the forces of nature to empower themselves. [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Or maybe not]].
* QuickDraw: How Gene earned himself the nickname ‘Caster’ due to firing so fast it seemed like magic.
* RailroadBaron: Fred Luo is re-imagined as one, though portrayed more positively than most examples.
* {{Remnant}}: Kei Bandits are remnants of the losing side of a war (an unnamed {{Expy}} of the US Confederacy). They didn’t take it well.
* RidingIntoTheSunset: How the story ends, on a reasonably happy note.
* SettlingTheFrontier.
* SmokingBarrelBlowout: To indicate [[spoiler:Melfina]] fired on [[spoiler:Igara]] to save [[spoiler:Gene’s]] life, when neither of them had taken a shot.
* TakingYouWithMe.
* TitleDrop: Last chapter, Jim produces an ''actual'' fistful of Dragonite gold which he [[spoiler:recovered from the mine before it collapsed]].
* TraumaInducedAmnesia: Poor Melfina, on top of seeing her parents killed, gets a nasty knock on the head. It keeps her from remembering who she is until later in the story.
* WantedPoster: The hell raisin’ [[McDougal]] brothers have one in Heiphong.
* WealthyEverAfter: Sadly not so much, but at least they get a [[TitleDrop Fistful of Dragonite]] for their troubles, which is enough for a reasonably comfortable retirement.
* YoungGun: Jim, of course. Hannyo as well, in this version.
