From the summary: "In the advent of the war economy, Philanthropy, the BSAA, the Mugen Tenshin Clan, and a host of other individuals and factions find themselves involved in the endless warfare while pursuing their own goals and agendas, all while something far more sinister lurks in the shadows."
Burst Limit contains examples of the following tropes (Beware of spoilers):
- Borrowed Catch Phrase: When she meets Ayane at the Mugen Tenshin village gates, Kasumi greets her with "Kept you waiting, huh?"
- The Big Rotten Apple: In chapter 6, Chris reflects that, with the Blacklight outbreak, as well as the Tanker and Big Shell Incidents, the past three years has simply been a bad time to live in New York.
- Canon Welding: The author himself states that he is doing his best to make the different series seem like one coherent continuity. The fic is, for example, set two years after [PROTOTYPE], three months after Dead or Alive 5, and one year after Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Resident Evil 5.
- Crossover: So far, we've got Resident Evil, [PROTOTYPE], Metal Gear, and Dead or Alive/Ninja Gaiden. And Word of God confirms there's more on the way.
