"What is the nature of a hero?"

Fallout: Equestria - Heroes is Recursive Fanfiction of Fallout: Equestria written by No One, and is currently a work in progress.

Inspired by the heroics of the mysterious mare known as the Stable Dweller, Silver Storm, a guard of the town of Marefort, decides to go on a daring mission to rescue her captured brother. Of course things rarely go as planned and her attempts at heroism drags her into a tangled web of plots and conspiracies as warring factions vie for control over the last great city: Dise.


Fallout: Equestria - Heroes contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Arc Words: "Survive." "What is the nature of a hero?”
  • Artificial Limbs:
    • Silver Storm loses her left foreleg to Starmetal poisoning, requiring a cybernetic replacement.
    • Later, she gets a cybernetic replacement for part of hind leg.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Silver Storm. Oh so much!
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Platinum Haze. She may be an Actual Pacifist, but when she realizes Silver stole med-X from her orphanage, she makes it very clear that she's going to get help for her addiction, weather she likes it or not.
  • Big Bad: Clear Cutt and the Watchers.
  • The Big Girl: Silver.
  • Boom, Headshot!: How Wildfire dies. The image continues to haunt Silver throughout the story.
  • Breather Chapter: Following the Day of Sunshine and Rainbows.
  • Buffy Speak: "I could feel a piece of steel rebar stabbing into my gut like a stabbing pain thing." And that's just one of several examples.
  • Advertisement:
  • Catapult Nightmare: Averted and Discussed. Silver frequently has nightmares over Wildfire's death, but merely wake up in a shock. After waking up from a nightmare at one point she even felt relieved that this trope didn't happen, noting that it was cliché.
  • Character Development: Roy Mustang eventually gets some. But he literally dies in the same chapter, so the whole thing was pretty pointless.
  • Cyborg: It is Mr. House's requirement for all of his subordinates, including Silver Storm, to have some cybernetic enhancement.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Silver and Flare.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Avarice still loves Dargonslayer, even after all he's done.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Hired Gun starts wearing an eyepatch due to losing an eye in a failed assassination attempt. She continues to use it even after getting a cybernetic replacement.
  • Fantastic Racism: There is a mutual hatred between Caledonian Ponies and Minotaurs due to fighting each other during and after the war.
  • First-Person Smartass: Silver Storm. Half the story is her snarking to herself about the things or people around her.
  • Footnote Fever: Like the parent story, the story has a tendency to note Silver Storm/Hired Gun's current level.
  • Happily Adopted: Serenity to Silver, although reluctantly for Silver at first.
  • Handicapped Badass: Even when her cybernetics are disabled or removed Silver is still a dangerous combatant capable capable of impressive feats
  • Hidden Depths: The main character seems to come off as an Idiot Hero, judging by her in-story stats, actions, and comments from other characters. However, her first person narration often shows a surprising amount of wisdom, intelligence and knowledge about the situations she finds herself in.
  • Idiot Hero: Decontructed, as Silver fairly self-aware, and the story handles her low intelligence realistically, but she still hits all the notes.
  • Ironic Name: Hired Gun's .50 caliber Anti-Materiel rifle, which she names "Subtlety".
    • One of House's ponies is named Starscream. He dies protecting his boss, loyal to the end.
  • Mama Bear: Silver toward Serenity. Threatening or hurting Serenity is an easy way to get on Silver's bad side.
  • Meaningful Rename: Silver Storm decides to call herself Hired Gun when she takes up mercenary work.
  • Monster Is a Mommy: Inverted. Dragonslayer is the adoptive father of Avarice, a dragon, albeit a baby one.
  • My Significance Sense Is Tingling: Silver can sense when a unicorn is using magic nearby due to her Starmetal poisoning.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Serenity has a certain...fascination with cybernetics. She even begs to watch Silver's cybernetic eye surgery.
  • Polite Villains, Rude Heroes: With few exceptions, Silver is less polite and less educated than her enemies.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: Silver does this a lot.
  • Shout-Out: One of the characters is named Starscream.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: The Batmare is prone to pulling these. Somehow without her teleportation.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Silver says she's sorry to Avarice after Dragonslayer dies, if only because he meant so much to him.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Platinum Haze feels this way towards Littlepip for killing the Goddess.
  • The Unfavorite: According to himself, Summer Silk was this to his and Silver's mother.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: The Watchers, Dragonslayer explains.
  • Wham Chapter: Chapter 24 ended with the deaths of many side characters, a war started between two biggest faction in Caledonian Wasteland, a megaspell explosion above Dise, and the reveal of the main villainous faction who works in shadows and cause conflict around Dise.
    • Chapter 29 The full extent of Foundation's death is explored and the chapter ends with the revelation that Silver is the host to a full powered megaspell.
