Fanfic / A Certain Unlucky Loser

Go To

An unlucky person was reborn in the world of RailDex, but he was reborn as Kamijou Touma. Now armed with the knowledge of future events that will soon befall him. Can our reluctant hero find the courage to face the world of RailDex and the inner demons that lead to his death?

"A Certain Unlucky Loser" by "MemeDevil" is an Alternate Universe fic of A Certain Magical Index that takes the perspective of an unknown individual reborn in the place of Kamijou Touma.

WARNING - spoiler tags are lifted past the Index Arc.

Tropes present in A Certain Unlucky Loser:

  • Abled in the Adaptation: "Touma" doesn't suffer memory loss due to putting on a bicycle helmet to prevent the Feather of Light from touching his head.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul:
    • "Touma" befriending Accelerator compare to the animosity between him and the original Touma in canon that led to their climactic battle.
    • "Touma" dating Ruiko compare to their first actual meeting during the Daihasei Festival Arc (Railgun).
  • Adaptational Early Appearance: "Touma" meeting Accelerator before the Sisters Arc.
  • Big Eater: Index, as always. But "Touma" is also included as he's capable of eating nearly the same amount of food as Index due to his financial situation.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Prior to being reincarnated in the Index universe, "Touma's" previous life was nothing more but a Trauma Conga Line.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: "Touma" may be an apathetic Deadpan Snarker, but he will still do the right thing like the original Touma.
  • What Is This Feeling?: When Mikoto sees how much well "Touma" and Ruiko interacted with each other along with displaying good chemistry, she feels her chest tighten up in an uncomfortable manner.
