Go To

Fantasy Blitzkrieg is a series of Alternate Universe Touhou Fan Fic written by a user called Lt Colonel Summers on Fanfiction.net. The series consist of separate "Missions" each with separate storylines within the same continuity. "Mission 2" is halfway done as of the creation of this trope page.

Summaries:

Mission One: Yukari warns Reimu that the Outsiders is close to the point of discovering Gensokyo. Reimu doesn't seem very worried at first, but when Yukari mentions something about Anti-Magic Technology... Meanwhile in the Outside World, a strange energy fluctuation is detected in southern Asahi (Japan by a different name), and the Humanity Military Forces decides to send in their best...

Mission 2: One month after the Fantasy Blitzkrieg Incident, Gensokyo was in high alert of something very big: the disappearance of the Glossary of Gensokyo. Investigations determined that the book is now in the hands of Jack Summers, the man responsible for the Incident. To prevent a hopeless war from starting, Yukari decided to send in the resident Incident solvers, to the Outside World...

Mission 3: Coming soon...

Mission 4: Coming soon...

Fantasy Blitzkrieg was known for it's various mood whiplashes through the story, with a dose of Mind Screw added to it. The author had planned to make it even more Darker and Edgier than Imperfect Metamorphosis. One of the most surprising elements of this series is that Gensokyo is portrayed as Dirty Commies, in the same level of not Soviet Russia, Ukraine, and So On or Mao Zedong-era China, but... North Korea.

Tropes contained in the Fantasy Blitzkrieg series:

  • Abnormal Ammo: The STI-Issued WL-2 Submachineguns fired Hi-speed Non-Explosive Anti-Tank rounds. They also fired the entire bullet. That's like 65% more bullet.
  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: LT's Zantankuto Sword can cut right through tank armors like it was just air!
  • Adaptational Badass:
    • All the Touhou casts. And how! Cirno actually manages to kill a Juggernaut-level Red Shirt for her introduction!
    • Not to mention Lily White actually managed to go from next-to-useless Chew Toy to almost Memetic Badass-level boss!
    • Let's not forget that Satori can now emulate the other characters' abilities as well as Spell Cards...
  • Agent Scully: The entire country of Registan takes this to the next level. They won't believe in magic even with solid proof of it's existence shoved into their face multiple times.

  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: Non-Video Game example. Mission One has LT as the protagonist, but by Mission 2, it's Reimu.
  • Artistic License – Physics: The author himself has admitted that the Daughters Of Liberty should not have survived the Mechanical Broom going at near-supersonic speeds without shielding. This crosses with Biology as well with the girls surviving it.
  • Ass Pull: An absurd amount can be tracked in the series. So much that even Lt Colonel Summers - the author of the story himself wondered why everything pops up like that.
  • A-Team Firing: Averted. LT and his Red Shirts were all able to hit their targets with good accuracy. Often times they aim ahead of fast-moving target's trajectory too.
  • Badass: LT and his gang.
  • BFG: Takagi Kobayashi's Piercing Rifle, when placed horizontally, is almost taller than he is. It also has the most bizarre ammo out of all Outside World guns...
  • BFS: David Fomes wields one Final Fantasy style.
    • So do Edge Calloway. His is more like something from a stereotypical Anime.
  • Bond One-Liner
    Remilia: I can outsmart bullets!
    Red Shirt: *Shoots Remilia in the face point-blank* Outsmart this!
    Remilia: *Regenerates* Outsmarted!
  • Brick Joke: Meiling gets tossed into the sky by David Fomes when LT and gang first encounters her. She doesn't come back down until halfway through Mission One, where she gets launched again by Yuugi.
    • After that, Meiling doesn't come back down until the beginning of Mission Two, where Sakuya launches her.
    • This one is almost a Running Gag...
  • Catchphrase: Walther would like to remind you that he's The Juggernaut, bitch!
  • Chekhov's Gun: In the Beginning of Mission Two, Sakuya was able to launch Meiling into the sky as though she has super strength. Fast forward to the battle with Edge Calloway, where Sakuya throws a desk at the Raider to defeat him.
    • At one point in Mission One, Reimu notices that the tea in her cup literally disappeared into thin air. Readers would have suspected Yukari at this point. Fast forward to the final battle of the same book, where Yukari does the same to LT's bullets.
  • Chekhov's Gag: Sakuya's Pads. Only mentioned exactly once by Marisa in Mission One. In Mission Two, it ends up saving Sakuya's life from Elisa.
  • City of Canals: Bevelle might as well be a Country Of Canals. There's also Canal City, which represents London.
  • Cool Gun: The STI employees are armed with these. So are the Outside World's militaries.
  • Cool Plane: The GA-Raider.
    • The Lunar Kingdom also has the Lunar Gunships, which enters the Earth's atmosphere as a meteor, and unfolding into a VTOL right before they crash.
  • Cool Ship: The Salvation-class Battle-Carriers. Island-sized mass of metal with a heck load of firepower. We have the RSS Pacific Rim, HMS Atlantic Rim, The Soviet's Vladimir Lenin, and the ADS Yamato 5.
  • Cool Sword: LT's Zantankuto Sword, and to a lesser extent, The Red Shirts' Zantetsu-Maru.
  • Corporate Samurai: Almost everybody who works at the STI are skilled with a katana, even a Gun Nut like Harrison.
  • Dirty Communists: Of all the countries to fit this trope, Gensokyo is the Dirty Commies this time around...
    • Not like the country has any choice. The author has stated that, without Yukari to control things, Gensokyo will be facing a massive civil unrest and riot, thus becoming a true Crapsack World.
    • The Outside World also has Soviet Malkrantia which, strangely enough, isn't Communist despite the name.
    • According to the in-story dialogues, Soden and North Korania were also Communists. The latter can be understood since it represents North Korea, while the former, representing South Africa, is not thoroughly explained...
  • Exact Words: When Cirno gets annoyed by Rumia constantly saying "Is that so~?", the former asks the latter if she can say something different. Rumia proceeds to say "So~ Nanoka?". Cirno facepalms.
  • Everything's Deader with Zombies: The Zombie Fairies. While they were just normal fiaires into cosplay in the games, Fantasy Blitzkrieg turns them into actual undeads, complete with the need to feed on living flesh. Thankfully they can only turn other fairies and ignore other types of Youkai completely.
  • Expy: The Outside World has a military force called RAIDERS, and it is supported by a Mega-Corp. FinalFantasyVII, anyone?
    • Not to mention that the STI also has Red Shirts called Turks.
    • Speaking of the Turks, the author's description of their appearance is to tell us to imagine Vincent Valentine and Auron.
  • Flipping the Bird: LT did this twice in Mission One. First at the Scarlet Devil Army while escaping Hakugyokurou, second at the Moon Defense Corps while infiltrating Eientei.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Any dialogue that isn't spoken by a Gensokyian, Bevellan or Registanian, except for a few are in the speaker's native language. There's Japanese, Chinese, Russian, German...
    • At least they weren't Google-translated...
  • The Great Offscreen War: The original characters keep mentioning a "STICK War" that has happened in the past.
  • Hammer and Sickle Removed for Your Protection: Averted. The Soviets have adopted the symbol as their military sigil.
  • Healing Factor: Remilia regenerates from being shot by an anti-tank machine gun in the face point-blank.
    • Exaggerated with the Lunarians. Eirin first survives getting an artery near her neck punctured without side-effects. Then after LT defeats Yukari, Kaguya was seen regenerating a half-destroyed head!
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": Sort of. LT's full name is Lieutenant Colonel Jack Summers. Yes, "Lieutenant Colonel" is part of his name.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: Played straight with the Outside World's militaries. Exaggerated with the ABCN whom were unable to hit a target that is standing still...
    • Lampshaded by Edge Calloway.
    You missed! How could you miss?! They were three meters right in front of you! And you have homing missiles!
  • Istanbul (Not Constantinople): What also makes Fantasy Blitzkrieg stands out is that each nations in the Outside World apparently have different names. For example, Japan is called Asahi; China is Chugoku; Soviet Russia is Soviet Malkrantia; Nazi Germany is Necopolis; the United Kingdoms is Bevelle; and the United States is Registan...
    • "Risk"-Style Map: Necopolis apparently occupies the entire Europe, minus the UK.
  • The Juggernaut: Walther. His subtitle is even "The Juggernaut"!
  • Knife Nut: We already have Sakuya in canon, but this Fan Fic introduces Elisa, who is an even bigger one, and is apparently a super soldier too...
  • Large Ham: Adolf Von Duer, the Fuhrer of Necopolis.
  • MacGuffin: The Zero Point Modules in Mission One, and the Tome Of Gensokyo in Mission 2.
  • Made of Explodium: That jar of (not) Crystal Meth in Eirin's Laboratory explodes after LT throws it onto the floor.
    • All the vehicles in Gensokyo explodes Michael Bay-style when destroyed.
    • Inverted in Bevelle where nothing explodes. Not even missiles... At least not with pyrotechnics.
    • We also have the Boomer, a pistol wherein each of it's bullets are loaded with a single drop of Di-Lithium Phosporous-A. Each of those bullets packed as much explosive force as a RPG. Thankfully it isn't volatile (but it's B counterpart apparently is), only being detonated by pressing a small button on the same Boomer that it was fired or ejected from.
    • Cirno's head seems to be prone to exploding...
  • Meaningful Name: Asahi is of course, Japanese for "Rising Sun".
    • Necopolis. Add an R and you'll get Necropolis, as in "City Of The Dead" in Latin. The surface of Necopolis has become inhospitable due to pollution, so this name seems to fit very well.
    • Subverted with the other nations. Chugoku is a Japanese name yet represents China. Registan also sounds very Middle-Eastern, but it is the United States. And there doesn't seem to be any meaning behind Malkrantia, Bevelle, Soden and Korania.
    • The Nation Leaders in Mission Two also mentioned Latusia, Lebow, Vadine, Nausicca and Sakafjordur. The last one sounds Icelandic, and is really Iceland. However nothing is said about the other four...
  • Mega-Corp: The Summers Technology Industries, also known as The STI. With LT as the CEO.
  • My Hovercraft Is Full of Eels: Snow Valleys, after getting mocked by Tasnil Dmitri, responds with a taunt, which was translated literally as this in Klingon.
  • Name's the Same: In-Universe. There's now Alice Margatroid and Alice Lou among the casts.
    • They both have a doll animated by magic. Both are called Shanghai...
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Nec(r)opolis.
  • National Stereotyping Tropes
  • Noodle Implements: Marisa's potions. Nobody, not even the in-series characters have any idea how she brews them.
    • The way Marisa uses some of them just makes it a bigger enigma. For example, a vial was used against the FBI in Registan as a flash grenade.
  • Noodle Incident: It appears that Marisa was banned from entering the Scarlet Devil Mansion for another reason aside from stealing books...
    • Sakuya tells Marisa not to get started on that horrible brew...
    • Mission Two: Just how did that 15-year old kid gets his hands on nuclear launch codes?
    • Also Mission Two: Apparently The Artillery Twins has smashed about four Josef Stalin statues prior to the story.
    • Mission Two again: The Nazis were apparently experimenting with weather control, and it went wrong...
  • No Swastikas: Averted. Not only were the Nazis mentioned by name in the story, they didn't even try to disguise the Swastika!
  • Nuclear Weapons Taboo: Asahi represents Japan, so naturally this trope should be in place. Instead it is subverted by Takatsu Suzuki mentioning nuclear arsenal in name.
  • Only One Name: Walther and Elisa were only referred to by their first names.
  • Our Presidents Are Different: The Nation Leaders decides to fight the Daughters Of Liberty personally once they watch their nation getting kicked in the ass.
  • Precision F-Strike: LT said this both times he flipped the bird in Mission One. In Mission Two, The Romanov pilots and Cloud upon defeat.
  • Red Shirt: The STI Guards and Turks in Mission One. Incidentally, they seem to last a lot longer than the usual Red Shirts, taking the entire Mission One before they all get Killed Off for Real.
  • Reference Overdosed
  • Running Gag: Meiling getting launched into the sky, and then coming back down after about halfway past the Missions.
    • LT trying to convince Registan that magic exists, and fails all the time.
    • There seems to be a familiar kid whose father is always on the receiving end of events caused by the protagonist. His name happens to be Watanabe...
    DDDAAAAADDD!
  • Schizo Tech: Gensokyo is already this in canon, but the Outside World, 22nd Century and all, apparently still uses revolvers...
    • Bevelle appears to be still using propeller planes...
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: The Nation Leaders and LT decides to GTFO once they have enough of getting mocked by Yukari.
    • The Allied Bevelle Commonwealth Navy literally said this when they see their Prime Minister being handed his own ass.
  • Separated by a Common Language: Edge at one point said that "They (Daughters Of Liberty) still has spots...". Those of you not familiar with British English should replace "spots" with "zits". Not that the Daughters have any...
  • Shooting Superman: Averted in Mission One where LT, Harrison and the Red Shirts all know when something is immune to bullets.
  • Shout-Out: Loads...
  • Soviet Superscience: Soviet Malkrantia gets a lot of good toys in a similar manner as CommandAndConquer. Tanks with multiple touch screen-controlled turrets, fighter planes with laser Gatling guns, Cruise Missiles accurate enough to target a single person, etc... They did a good job trying to catch up with the Nazis. Speaking of the Nazis...
  • Stupid Jetpack Hitler: They really have jetpack Nazis in Necopolis. They also have AI-controlled Action Bomb tanks, machine guns with electrifying bullets, Deflector Shields...
    • According to Sakuya, the Jaeger Retaliation Tanks apparently have their prototypes thought of during World War 2. In other words, the Nazis really are more advanced in this history.
  • Super Soldier: The Raiders. Interesting that they aren't genetic modifications or serum-induced, but naturally born.
  • Take That!: LT tells a Soviet conscript that friendship is not magic and it does not bring harmony.
  • Tanks for Nothing: The Outside World deployed loads of tanks, and still get their ass handed by five teenage magical girls...
  • Theme Naming: The Scarlet Devil Army named their tanks .495 Scarlet Wing, and their helicopters .500 Scarlet Fang. If you know the ages of Remilia and Flandre in canon, the numbers on those vehicles should have an obvious meaning to you.
    • Also the Outside World with their militaries. At least some of them did. Other nations apparently tossed in whichever words they could thought of at the moment when naming their hardwares.
    • Youkai Theme Naming: The Imperial Asahi Military Force have Tsuchigumo Tanks and Yuki-Onna Helicopters.
  • This Page Will Self-Destruct: The video player thing that was airdropped by the STI to Walther and Elisa.
    Harrison: Oh, and starting from this point, this device will self destruct in five seconds...
  • Title Drop: Characters of the story, OCs included, often refers to the events of the story as the Fantasy Blitzkrieg. Although the Gensokyians sees it as a plain simple Incident, the Outside World sees it as a skirmish and Crisis.
    • As of the Registan Arc, the Outside World sees the event as a War Against Terror.
  • Walk into Mordor: With the East Necopolis Demilitarized Zone as the Mordor. Lampshaded by two Nazi mooks.
  • World War III: Implied to have happened in the past.
  • Your Head A-Splode: Cirno, three times...
  • Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: Discussed by the CNN.
    But we kept being told that Our Terrorist is Their Freedom Fighter...
