Galactic Force is an in development Science Fantasy RPG based on an obscure series of comics by the same name.

Galactic Force contains examples of

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: President Zolo
  • Balance Between Good and Evil: At the beginning it is explained that the Genesis deliberately sought to ensure this when he created the universe.
    • Order Versus Chaos is also something the Genesis planned to keep in balance, however Xercon argues that chaos and order can never co-exist, and hence Vanenkera's actions.
    • Xercon, the "Prince of Love and Chaos" is consciously supposed to represent Chaotic Good but becomes Neutral Good as the story progresses, as he allies himself with the "order" side of the spectrum in order to defeat Vanenkera.

    • Vanenkera, the "Prince of Hate and Chaos" is the epitome of Chaotic Evil and thus the Foil to Xercon.
    • Other characters, and Galactic Force as a whole, tend to be Lawful Good although as Galactic Force exists "to defend freedom", there may be a Chaotic Good element to its ethos.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: The clash of personalities and political differences between Roe and Tansterdant ultimately leads to this.
  • The Empire: The Darku Empire and its hordes of Brainwashed subjects.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Around two thirds of the game in you defeat Emperor Darku, and Vanenkera and it seems to be over until Vanenkera becomes the Ascended Dragon and triggers uncreation.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Vanenkera is this for most of the game until ultimately becoming the Big Bad
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Tansterdant, the legendary former Galactic Force agent finds this upon meeting Princess Roe when he is ordered about by her.
  • Advertisement:
  • Eldritch Abomination: Vanenkeran's final form after he obtains all three Galactic Orbs and begins "uncreation" of the universe.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Jeniah is shocked when Arcricon refers to Planet Buklos as "Mars", a name that hasn't been in use to describe the planet for millennia. It is later revealed that, unknown to the two, Jeniah was born centuries after Arcricon but they are together due to a Time Crash caused by Vanenkera's grand plan.
  • Five-Man Band:
  • Five-Man Band: Most of the playable characters fit into this trope in some way.
    • The Leader: Xercon, and occasionally Voshara when Xercon is instead playing The Mentor role.
    • The Lancer: Both Arcricon and Voshara fit this, but Voshara especially.
    • The Smart Guy: Arcricon and later Nyabatroide.
    • The Big Guy: Although in game he's merely Summon Magic, Blathilzar plays this role in most early cutscenes. Tansterdant later fills this role, as to an extent does Zolo. Scorch also fit this role.
    • The Chick: Jeniah, who was consciously created "because there were no female main characters" and later Roe and Fili.
    • The Sixth Ranger: Blathilzar was this in the beginning (he's even the game's second boss), as was Tansterdant. And later, the Genesis himself who joins The Team in order to stop Vanenkera.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble:
    • Arcricon is usually The Optimist, occasionally The Conflicted
    • Voshara is the Realist
    • Tansterdant is the Cynic
    • Xercon is the Apathetic - his true motivations still remain pretty unclear throughout the first half of the game
  • Fun with Acronyms: While most characters need a Spirit Guardian to use magic, Galactic Force agents use the conveniently named "Synthetic Psychic Interception and Redirection Interface Technology" or "SPIRIT".
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Xercon uses a sword despite them being absolutely obsolete in a sci fi universe.
  • Heroes "R" Us: Galactic Force
  • Magic from Technology: As a man early on in the game says, "The greatest technological leap forward in history was when scientists invented magic."
  • Power Trio: The game is divided into three main power trios of protagonists:
    • The main one is Xercon, Arcricon and Voshara, in which the game begins With A Friend And Stranger. To an extent this trio could also be considered Knight, Knave and Squire with Voshara (trained Galactic Force agent) fulfilling the Knight role, Arcricon (Pilot and reluctant combatant) fulfilling the Squire role and Xercon (mysterious vagabond from nowhere) fulfilling the Knave role.
    • Jeniah, Roe and Fili. The most obvious form is the fact that they fall into the Blonde, Brunette, Redhead dynamic, although they are to an extent a Fighter, Mage, Thief trio, especially in the original comics (Jeniah the Fighter, Roe the Mage and Fili the Thief). Nice, Mean, and In-Between applies also, with Fili being (naively) nice, Roe being mean and Jeniah somewhat in-between (or at least able to act as a mediator between Roe and pretty much every other character).
    • Tansterdant, Nyabatroide and Scorch in the final battle end up lumped together in a Beauty Brains Brawn trio, with Tansterdant the beauty, Nyabatroide the brains and Scorch the brawn.
  • Punch! Punch! Punch! Uh Oh...: When Arcricon first confronts Zane and realises halfway through that the absence of the Galactic Orb means he no longer has superhuman strength.
  • Rule of Cool: While the vast majority of characters use laser weapons, for some reason Xercon and Blathilzar use swords and Jeniah uses a spear - hopelessly outdated weaponry for a sci fi setting.
  • Shrouded in Myth: This is true of both Xercon and Tansterdant who are legendary and semi-legendary figures respectively. Both are known to be The Ace although it would appear, particularly in Xercon's case, to be an Informed Ability with him only one level more powerful than Arcricon and Voshara and he is a victim of The Worf Effect very early on in the game.
  • Three Plus Two: The first act of the game features the Power Trio of Xercon, Arcricon and Voshara with later additions coming in the form of Jeniah, Tansterdant and others.
  • Tsundere: Roe.
  • United Space of America: Inverted. The default system of government in the future seems to be a Westminster-style constitutional monarchy, and the equivalent of The Federation bears considerable resemblance to the Commonwealth of Nations, with Planet Shinerack taking on the role of benevolent protector of worlds that were formerly part of its colonial empire making it an equivalent to the United Kingdom rather than United States.
  • Well, Excuse Me, Princess!: Tansterdant and Roe. Initially Arcricon and Blathilzar too.
