* CastingGag: Despise being a doujinshi, many characters are shaped after a role their [=VAs=] voiced previously or related with the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise:
** Melona is depicted as the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam Throne Drei]], since her pilot, Nena Trinity, [[Creator/RieKugimiya shares the same voice actress with Melona.]]
** Ditto with Nyx, as she's depicted as the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Infinite Justice Gundam]], since [[Creator/RieTanaka her voice actress]] voiced both Nyx and Lacus Clyne, one of the protagonists and Athrun Zala's (the pilot) former girlfriend.
** A more complex one involving [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha Takamachi]]: She's depicted as the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Wing Gundam Zero]] because the voice actor of her older brother [[Creator/HikaruMidorikawa Kyoya]] voiced Heero Yuy, who pilots that MS, not to mention its most powerful weapon, the Twin Buster Rifle, resembles Nanoha's final attack, the Starlight Breaker.


* OutOfFocus: From the ''Queen's Blade'' franchise, only Risty, Melpha and the rest of the cast from ''Queen's Blade Rebellion'' doesn't appear here. The author planned to include Risty being depicted as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Sazabi]] but maybe due to the fact [[YukoKaida Risty's VA]] voiced [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Marida Cruz]] and none of the MS she pilots during the original novel and the anime is red [[spoiler:(Other when the Banshee uses his [[SuperMode NT-D mode)]]]], maybe he decided for not including her anyways.

What happens when you mix the fanservice antics from the heroines from the ''Anime/QueensBlade'' franchise (and also ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'') with the DarkerAndEdgier plots of the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise? While being in SuperDeformed?

Enter ''Mobile Suit Blade''!

This doujinshi, written by Website/{{Pixiv}} artist @mino (pronounced as "Amino") is basically a very weird recap of the first season of the ''Queen's Blade'' anime (the Rurou no Senshi one) while depicting the heroines as SuperDeformed Mobile Suit versions of themselves and mixing [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Saber]], [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha Takamachi and Fate Testarossa]] to the fray. Each heroine is depicted as a different MS from a different series of the ''Gundam'' franchise:

* Leina as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam Exia]].
* Elina and Claudette as the Gundam Astraea and Astraea F respectively from the ''Manga/Gundam00Sidestories''.
* Melona as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam Throne Drei]].
* Airi as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Deathscythe]].
* Menace as a [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Pharaoh Gundam]].
* Tomoe as a [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsGundam Musha Gundam]].
* Shizuka as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Gerbera Tetra]].
* Nyx as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Infinite Justice Gundam]].
* Ymir and her cousin Eilin as [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Dreissens]].
* Cattleya as a [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Zoloat]] and her son Rana (oddly enough) as a ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Wing Gundam Zero]]''.
* Echidna as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory GM Quell]].
* Irma as a [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Gundam Mk. II (with the Titans colors to match the color of her skin)]].
* Aldra as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Reborns Gundam]].
* Nanael as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Nu-Gundam and her friend Hachiel as a Jagd Doga]].
* Nowa as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam GM Light Armor]].
* Alleyne as a [[Manga/GundamSentinel Nero Trainer]].
* Alice (From the ''Queen's Gate'' novels) as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Cherudim Gundam]].
* Saber as a [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsGundam Knight Gundam]].
* Nanoha Takamachi also as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Wing Gundam Zero]].

You can read it in the artist's [[http://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=695818 Pixiv page]], (registration required and some art can be NSFW, but the doujinshi itself is relatively tame compared with the original series who is based of)[[note]]For the beginners, there's no sex scenes and very few {{Fanservice}} scenes, and no nudity, despise being a doujinshi.[[/note]]

!!''Mobile Suit Blade'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AdaptationalVillainy / AdaptationalBadass: The ''whole'' doujin turns up many heroines and villains more heroic (or evil) than the original series they came from. The best examples are Leina and Melona: While in ''MS Blade'' she's more hot-blooded than her original role in the series, Melona, on the other hand, is more evil and creepier, to the grade she outright kills a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam GM girl]] who tried to fight against her. (instead of Leina in the original TV series). Leina kicked Melona's ass with a combination of both [[FinishingMove Dragon Tail]] and the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Trans-Am.]]
* BloodierAndGorier: Taking into account this is a crossover between ''Anime/QueensBlade'' with a franchise infamous for this, this is expected. The odd part is the fact all the characters are supposed to be '''Machines''', but they can bleed human blood.
* CastingGag: Despise being a doujinshi, many characters are shaped after a role their [=VAs=] voiced previously or related with the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise:
** Melona is depicted as the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam Throne Drei]], since her pilot, Nena Trinity, [[Creator/RieKugimiya shares the same voice actress with Melona.]]
** Ditto with Nyx, as she's depicted as the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Infinite Justice Gundam]], since [[Creator/RieTanaka her voice actress]] voiced both Nyx and Lacus Clyne, one of the protagonists and Athrun Zala's (the pilot) former girlfriend.
** A more complex one involving [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha Takamachi]]: She's depicted as the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Wing Gundam Zero]] because the voice actor of her older brother [[Creator/HikaruMidorikawa Kyoya]] voiced Heero Yuy, who pilots that MS, not to mention its most powerful weapon, the Twin Buster Rifle, resembles Nanoha's final attack, the Starlight Breaker.
* {{Crossover}}
* MythologyGag: Being based in ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'', this is almost mandatory: While fighting against Menace, Tomoe receives some extra power from the Empress of Hinomoto, in the same style [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Tiffa Adill does while helping Garrod using the Satellite Cannon]].
* NotEnoughToBury: This is the fate of the GM Girl who was killed by Melona in the very first chapter, since she melted her into a bloody mess. Leina buried her anyways.
* OneWingedAngel: The Swamp Witch Trio has a tendence of using this when the things are going bad for them.
* OutOfFocus: From the ''Queen's Blade'' franchise, only Risty, Melpha and the rest of the cast from ''Queen's Blade Rebellion'' doesn't appear here. The author planned to include Risty being depicted as a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Sazabi]] but maybe due to the fact [[YukoKaida Risty's VA]] voiced [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Marida Cruz]] and none of the MS she pilots during the original novel and the anime is red [[spoiler:(Other when the Banshee uses his [[SuperMode NT-D mode)]]]], maybe he decided for not including her anyways.
* ShoutOut: A very odd shout-out happens in the last published episode of the doujinshi: When Claudette stops Elina when she tries to kill one of her maids, she summons the ''[[Anime/GreatMazinger Thunder Break]]'' rather than her default ''Raimei Shinkan''.
* SuperDeformed
* SuperMode: Leina's [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Trans-Am]] and [[spoiler:Airi's Gunkiller mode]].
* ThisIsUnforgivable: Melona says this after being defeated by Leina in the first chapter.
