Avengers of the Multi-verse is a series of mega crossover fics between Danny Phantom, Sym-Bionic Titan, American Dragon: Jake Long, Ben 10, Generator Rex, The Secret Saturdays, and Kim Possible.

It should also be noted that the author incorporates various aspects from popular fanfic writer Aaron12's various series into this, like Sam being a halfa and Kim and Jake having met each other prior to the series.

The author of the series, Iron117Prime, has also done Fairy May Cry, Code Prime - R1: Rebellion, Frozen Turtles and J-WITCH Season 1.

    The first season is as follows:

    Season 1 
  • Action Girl:
    • As per canon, Kim and Ilana.
    • In Episode 3 we get to see Sam (now with ghost powers) and Dani in action.
  • Always Second Best: Jake uses this to taunt Albedo during their fight in Clash of Titans, pointing out that he's always second to either Ben, Azmuth, or Vilgax.
  • The Archmage: The Archmage of Atlantis has his ghost summoned by Chang, which is powerful enough to give Max a serious run for his money.
  • Atlantis: In Jake, Kim, and Ron's world, Atlantis was the first civilization to use magic, their signature being Creating Life. The Leviathan was made to defend Atlantis, but turned against its creators and destroyed Atlantis, forcing it to be sealed away.
  • Badass Family: The Saturdays, which is even commented on In-Universe. To give a quick run down, their son Zak is a member of the Avengers, his 'siblings' are cryptids with powerful abilities, the parents were able to give Kim and Rex a good fight respectively while Brainwashed and Crazy, and Zak's uncle was capable of infiltrating Weird World on his own on several occasions and come out unscathed.
  • Badass Normal: Kim is the only member without powers, but still has excellent martial arts skills and extensive experience in stealth. Furthermore, her battle suit actually gives her some abilities including force fields, energy absorption, and (as of Episode 3) the ability to bypass intangibility, making this a Downplayed Trope.
  • The Bad Guy Wins:
    • Episode 1: A Home Away From Homes, the Mutradi Phantoms are defeated, but Modula is able to gain access to the knowledge they stole about the Avenger's powers and histories and manages to gain access to the multiverse.
    • Episode 5: War of the Worlds, while his invasion of Galaluna was stopped, Vilgax and Psyphon managed to acquire the schematics of Illana's Corus armor and they gained data on Titan.
    • Episode 6: Deus Rex Machina, Van Kleiss manages to both getaway but also get a sample of the energy that powers Octus, as well as his schematics, presumable to make an Evil Knockoff of him with.
  • Bash Brothers: Given the nature of the team this was bound to happen. Special mention goes to Ben and Rex, who remain good friends from their previous team-up and enjoy beating up bad guys together.
  • Battle Couple:
    • Kim and Ron are an Official Couple and both are martial arts masters capable of kicking lots of ass individuals or together. In addition, years of going on missions together mean that their teamwork is excellent.
    • Downplayed with Danny and Sam. While they both have powers and are great at fighting ghosts, we have yet to see them fight together.
    • Jake and Rose show are a shapeshifting dragon and a former Hunstclan that are in a committed relationship. Dawn of the Dragons shows the two also have impressive coordination in battle, launching simultaneous attacks on the Yowie Yahoo.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: In Dawn of The Dragons, Zak uses his power against the Dark Dragon's mind-control powers on the Guardians of the keys to the Leviathan's prison.
  • Battle in the Rain: Most of Titan's battle with the Leviathan takes place underwater, but briefly they fight above the ocean's surface in the middle of a storm.
  • Behemoth Battle:
    • When faced with a trio of Mutradi Tri-Beasts, the Titan crew form the titular robot, while Ben deals with another as Way Big.
    • Titan is also used to go up against Vilgax's giant robot of himself, the Leviathan, and its own Evil Knockoff, Goliath.
  • Big Good: Paradox and Clockwork are responsible for organizing the teams meeting in the prologue. Likewise, Solomon provided them their base and information about any crises as they occur.
  • Body Backup Drive: Argost is now back in a Yeti body, a clone of his original.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy:
    • Breach for much of Deus Rex Machina is under Van Kleiss' control thanks to the mind control collar. Danny manages to free her during the Pack's assault on the G3 base.
    • In Nightmare At Weird World, Argost uses Neural Parasites on Doc and Drew, which, combined with his Anti-Kur powers, allow him to control them.
  • The Cavalry:
    • At the climax of Dawn of the Dragons, just as the Avengers are being overwhelmed by the Dark Dragon's army of Huntsclan ghosts, Lao-Shi shows up leading the combined forces of all the world's dragons (as well as Jake's friends Spud and Trixie), who help turn the tide in their favor.
    • The first fight in Clash of Titans ends with G3 swooping in via Gunship Rescue to save the Avengers from Goliath.
  • Combat Pragmatist:
    • During the battle against the Mutrad Tri-Beast, Danny bypasses its thick skin by phasing inside of it and unleashing a storm of ecto-blasts on its internal organs.
    • When faced with Baron and Skulker, both of whom rely on power armor, the team opts to simply have Danny use intangibility to knock the former out of his, and Rex uses his technopathy to deactivate the latters.
    • When fighting the Brainwashed and Crazy Doc Saturday, Rex gains the upper hand by using his technopathy to disable his power glove.
  • Combination Attack: During the battle against Vilgax in Episode 5, Danny and Ben deliver the finishing blow by combining the former's Ghostly Wail with the latter's sonic scream as Echo Echo.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Surprisingly, Drakken of all people. He brings improved syntho-drones as hidden back-up each time he goes to steal something, has improved his hovercraft for remote summoning and high speeds for a reliable get-away plan and to cap it all off, keeps his plan secret from everyone (including Shego) to ensure countermeasures can't be made ahead of time. He even had a ten-second self-destruct switch installed in his lair for a distraction in the event that his plan failed and he needed to make a quick escape.
  • Curse Cut Short: Upon discovering Van Kleiss used a Providence collar on Breach, Rex has some choice words for him, before the Pack starts attacking him.
    Rex: You sick piece of...
    Van Kleiss: Now, now. You need to watch that temper of yours. Biowulf, Skalamander, please teach him some discipline.
  • Damsel in Distress: Ilana gets captured by Psyphon and needed to be rescued by Rufus when he snuck along. She's also aware of how she tends to be this and is rather self-conscious about it.
    Ilana (to herself): Why am I so helpless all the time?
    • She lampshades this again in Clash of Titans, asking Kim for help in training so she's not helpless outside of her armor.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Each episode from Ghost Busting to Dawn of the Dragons focuses on one member(s) of the team.
  • Divide and Conquer: Goliath is finally defeated by the Titan team exploiting Shego and Baron's dislike of each other and Novex, eventually causing their combination to fall apart.
  • Dual Wielding: Zak starts to do this with the Claw and the Fang after taking the latter from Argost.
  • Eureka Moment: At the start of Clash of Titans, the Avengers discuss their string of recent adventures and deduce that their enemies are working together.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Shego refuses to kill, which prevents Goliath (which she's part of) from finishing off the Avengers in their first fight.
  • Everyone Can See It: More than one character has commented on or teased Ilana or Lance about their presumed relationship.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: When Albedo is going over the data the Cabal has on Octus, he discovers that the robot was designed to develop emotions. The members openly scoff at the idea and ensure that Novex will act based solely on logic.
  • Evil Knockoff: It's revealed that the allied villains are creating one of Titan, code-named "Project Goliath", powered by an evil version of Octus called Novex. Shego wields a knockoff of Ilana's armor in Goliath, while Baron takes Lance's role..
  • Fire-Forged Friends: There is initially some friction between Ben and Ron (as mentioned below in Let's You and Him Fight), which they work past while storming a Mutradi base, aided by the fact that Ron temporarily believed Ben had died and was relieved when he turned out to be alright.
  • Fights Like a Normal: Because Zak's powers only work on cryptids, they're basically useless unless the fighting is on his world. As a result, he mostly fights with physical combat as well as his scientific expertise.
  • Foil: Rex and Lance. Both were sons of scientists raised in a military of a sort, both rely on technological enhancements to fight, both have problems with authority and have experienced the loss of home and family at a young age. However, their personalities and approach to combat are complete opposites. Rex is outwardly very excitable and emotional, prefers a straightforward approach to combat, yet actually has a good handle on his emotions (too much anger causes his Builds to fall apart) and is in fact, quite intelligent, giving logical reasoning for a head-on assault of the Mutradi base, and exploiting the environment to defeat the commander. Meanwhile, Lance outwardly projects a calm, collected attitude and favors stealth to gather intelligence before committing to a plan of attack, but suffers from violent outbursts when something unexpected happens, and while well trained and highly skilled in combat, seems to lack creativity in his tactics.
  • Genius Bruiser:
    • As per canon, Octus, aiding in the construction of the team's portal generators and acting as one of the resident science experts. He is also capable of running down dozens of Mutradi soldiers single-handedly.
    • In addition to his extensive combat training, Zak has displayed advanced skills in science and engineering, being able to keep pace with Octus' explanation of how the rift gate works, and understanding the mechanics of the liquid metal Drakken aims to steal in Mission Possible.
  • He's Back: Villainous example in Episode 7. Argost has both a yeti body again (a clone body, by the way) and has his Anti-Kur powers back.
  • Heroes Unlimited: At the end of the season, the team decides to start recruiting more members to counter the Cabal and their superior numbers.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard:
    • How the Leviathan is ultimately defeated: Titan forces its mouth closed just as it's preparing to fire its Breath Weapon, which backfires and ends up disintegrating half its body.
    • The Cabal releases Argost's former body against the Avengers, but since it's mindless due to Argost's soul having been transferred back into a cloned Yeti body, Zak is able to take control of it without resistance.
  • Irony:
    • While Ben knows Zak and Rex and Jake has met Kim and Ron at this point, the first meetings in the Sym-Bionic-Titan world are between Ben and Team Possible, Jake with Rex and Zak (while they both know Ben, neither have met the other), preventing any quick reunions.
    • Invoked by Chang, who uses the necromancy amulet to summon the ghosts of the Huntsclan, making a group that was formed to eliminate all magical creatures the minions of a being working to eliminate humanity.
  • It's Personal: Rex has even more of a grudge against Van Kleiss here than in canon. This is due to his restored memories revealing that the man was responsible for the death of his parents when the Nanite Event occurred.
  • Joke and Receive: Upon seeing Vlad's portrait (and getting some background from Danny), Ben comments that he'd expect the villain to own a cat. When Vlad faces them on a swivel chair with his cat in his arms the two burst out laughing.
  • The Juggernaut: After reintegrating his cybernetics from the original series, Vilgax regains this status. To elaborate, in succession, he shrugs off blows from the team's heavy hitters (sans Titan), survives the vacuum of space unaided, falls from orbit and proceeds to continue fighting like nothing happened. Even after Danny and Ben's Combination Attack he was ready to keep going, only retreating because his forces were destroyed and he had already scanned Ilana's armor.
  • Kraken and Leviathan: Dawn of the Dragons has the threat of the Dark Dragon unleashing the Leviathan, which was created by and then destroyed the Kim Possible/American Dragon world's version of Atlantis before being sealed away, and it's considered to be more dangerous than all the other thirteen greatest threats to the magical world, the Dark Dragon included, combined. Even the Huntsclan, which was dedicated to destroying all magical creatures everywhere, didn't want to mess with it. Once freed, it's revealed to be a massive serpent.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Argost notes how the idea of various kinds of supervillains teaming up sounds like something out of television.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Justified. When the groups attack the Mutradi warp stations, most opt for a head-on assault, noting that with the number of soldiers each one contains, stealth would be extremely difficult and time-consuming. Since they are on a time limit a frontal assault is more practical, more so by the fact that each pair contains a One-Man Army or Person of Mass Destruction.
  • Legion of Doom: While the heroes are unaware of it until Clash of Titans, Modula has responded to the formation of the Avengers by forging an alliance with the various team members' respective Big Bads, known as the Cabal. And it later turns out that while the Big Bads are the joint leaders of the group, the organization as a whole has a hundred members composed of other antagonists from their respective universes.
  • Let's You and Him Fight:
    • Ben's first encounter with Kim and Ron devolves into this owing to his brusque attitude and the latter two mistaking him for one of the Mutradi.
    • Ben, Kim, and Ron have a subsequent encounter with Danny where he attacks them assuming they're Mutradi agents.
    • A villainous example — as shown in Clash of Titans, the first meeting of the Cabal members led to them fighting due to their clashing egos, until Modula broke it up.
  • MacGuffin Guardian: The five keys that unlock the Leviathan's prison are hidden in different parts of the world, and are each protected by a legendary creature — the Mother Phoenix in China, the Quetzalcoatl in Mexico, the Yowie-Yahoo in Australia, the King Hydra in Greece, and the Sphinx in Egypt.
  • Multiversal Conqueror: After the Avengers are defeated, Modula and the Cabal plan to conquer the Multiverse as a whole.
  • No Plans, No Prototype, No Backup: The Cabal are able to create their own version of Octus, but for various reasons they can only create a single prototype because certain details of the construction are virtually impossible to replicate.
  • Odd Friendship: Zak, a human reincarnation of a cryptid with powerful mystical abilities from a family of cryptozoologists, and Octus, a multi-purpose robot less than a year old created by an alien race, seem to get along incredibly well, frequently partnering up on missions and enjoy each others company during their downtime, owing to their joint role as The Smart Guy on the team.
  • Oh, Crap!: The Avengers' reaction when they deduce that their enemies are working together. And again when they find out it's far more than just their respective archenemies.
  • OOC Is Serious Business:
    • Ben and Rex are the two most carefree members of the team, but when confronted by Vilgax and Van Kleiss, respectfully, they become deadly serious.
    • Jake takes note on how Sara and Kara are noticeably scared before they reveal that the Dark Dragon is planning on freeing the Leviathan.
  • Pent-Up Power Peril: Titan defeats the Leviathan by holding its mouth shut so that its Breath Weapon cannot escape, building up to such a degree that it blows the Leviathan apart.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: The team gets along well enough, but they have trouble coordinating in their early missions together; it took until the end of their second mission to officially 'designate' Danny as the team leader.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Vilgax states that he's been conquering worlds and enslaving civilizations for thousands of years.
  • Recursive Fanfiction: For the Danny Phantom and Kim Possible aspects of the story, the author draws on the Facing the Future Series and The More Things Change Series, respectfully.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The dynamic between Rex and Lance. The former is red, opting for a straightforward attack on the Mutradi forces and clearly looks forward to the resulting fight, while Lance acts as the blue, preferring to scope out the base and plan, and remains focused throughout the assault.
  • Rooftop Confrontation: Zak and Argost duel atop the roof of Weird World in Episode 7.
  • Seen It All:
    • While most of the heroes express confusion at being transported to Sherman, Ben deduces he's in another universe almost immediately and only shows mild annoyance over the fact. When faced with the Mutradi fleet, he nonchalantly notes how similar alien invasion fleets look after you've seen them more than once.
    • By Dawn of the Dragons, the entire team seems to be moving toward this, with Rex noting a year ago fighting an army of zombie dragons would have gotten a much bigger reaction from him. In the next chapter, learning the Dark Dragon's goals of exterminating humanity and dominating the magical world gets a "yeah, figured" from him, much to Haley's shock, causing Rex to respond that when you've seen what the Avengers have, the villain Take Over the World shtick gets old real fast.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Considering the name, it's obvious where the fic takes inspiration from.
      • Clockwork and Professor Paradox even discussed about the group's name, revealing that there's another team named "The Avengers". Interestingly, Professor Paradox throws in that the Multi-verse Avengers might have coined that term first.
    • At one point Ron makes a Game of Thrones reference.
    • The Yowie Yahoo exists on Jake, Kim, and Ron's world.
    • The Leviathan from Dawn of the Dragons is specifically based on the one from Yu-Gi-Oh!.
  • Shipper on Deck:
    • Upon meeting Sam, Kim remarks that she and Danny complement each other quite well.
    • Kim also playfully teases Illana by bringing up her obvious crush on Lance.
  • Ship Tease: Several times throughout the series between Lance and Ilana.
  • Situational Sword: Zak's powers rarely come into play, owing to the fact that they only affect cryptids. A Nightmare at Weird World shows that when they do come into play it turns any encounter with enemy cryptids into a borderline Curb-Stomp Battle, with even the "battle" part being optional since he can simply get them to flee the battlefield, as seen when he drove off a small group giving the rest of the team trouble. In Dawn of the Dragons, it's discovered that it also works on magical creatures from Jake, Ron, and Kim's world, as he is able to disrupt the Dark Dragon's mind control spell on the Sphynx and the other guardians of the keys.
  • The Smart Guy: A role on the team shared by Octus and Zak.
  • Social Darwinist: Vilgax admits to Ilana that he's a monster, but he sees his actions as basically his divine right to do so because he's strong and the weak deserve to die. He even compares it to a human crushing an ant, it's just something he does.
  • Spanner in the Works: Rufus frequently plays this role, being small enough that most villains don't notice him sneak by (either on people or around them). This lets him derail several plans by virtue of snatching the occasional MacGuffin under their noses or messing with whatever machinery is being used.
  • Sufficiently Advanced Alien: Albedo is a Galvan, a species whose hat is super intelligence that makes them the greatest inventors in the Ben 10 universe. Yet even he can't fully understand how the Galalunan technology behind Titan works.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Baron and Shego despite each other, which limits their effectiveness as part of Goliath.
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • Villainous Example. Since his last canon appearance, Drakken has gained greater mastery over his plant powers, displaying the ability to grow prehensile tentacles similar to Doctor Octopus, allowing him to actually fight directly against Kim. He also displays more general competence as a planner, as outlined in Crazy-Prepared above.
    • Played with regarding Vilgax, as he's not so much gaining, but rather 'regaining' lost levels. In his appearance in Episode 5, he has restored his cybernetic enhancements from the original series while retaining his sword from Ben 10: Alien Force. The result is terrifyingly effective, with it requiring most of the team to push him back and a Combination Attack from Danny and Ben, two of the Avenger's strongest members, to actually defeat him.
    • Zak ends up taking the Fang from Argost and wielding it in tandem with the Claw. In Dawn of the Dragons, he discovers that if he hits a target with both weapons at the same time and location, the anti-matter/matter reaction produces localized but devastating effects.
    • Illana is trying to do this as of Clash of Titans, having gotten sick of being useless in a fight outside her armor.
  • Unspoken Plan Guarantee: Drakken succeeds in his latest scheme (upgrading his remaining weaponized toys from "So The Drama" and giving them a massive upgrade) partly because he doesn't tell anyone, even Shego, what it is so that the heroes are playing catch-up.
  • The War Has Just Begun: Modula promises the Avengers this during the climax of Clash of Titans, noting that even if the heroes win this fight, there's more to come. Danny acknowledges that he was right about this at the end of the story.
  • What an Idiot!: In-Universe, the other Avengers basically quote this when they learn of the circumstances that led to Vlad exposing his true nature during "Phantom Planet"; Kim explicitly states that even some of her villains would have a back-up plan to something that big rather than pin everything on a single scheme.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Discussed between Illana and Octus after the confrontation with the Cabal's Titan, as Illana wonders if they could try and redeem Novex to stop the Cabal from using their Titan again and Octus confirms that wouldn't be possible as Novex was deliberately designed to be incapable of experiencing emotion that might inspire it to turn on its current masters.
  • Whole Plot Reference:
    • The first half of the prologue is basically a retake of both The Avengers (2012) and Justice League: War, with the Mutradi standing in for both the Chitauri and Parademons.
    • Follow the Leader likewise has a similar setup and resolution as the Young Justice episode "Drop Zone".
  • Wizard Duel: One occurs during the battle in Atlantis in Dawn of the Dragons, between Max and the summoned ghost of Atlantis' archmage.
  • The Worf Effect: The Cabal, especially Goliath, easily overwhelm the Avengers in their first major fight. By the second, the team has managed to figure out how to turn the tables.
  • Worf Had the Flu:
    • In War of the Worlds, Vilgax pretty easily has his fleet wipe out Galaluna's defenses, but it's noted that the planet is still recovering from the previous Mutradi invasion and they're nowhere near their full strength just yet.
    • Rex initially fares poorly against Van Kleiss, with his anger making him sloppier and easier to predict. Once Ben arrives and he calms down, the two easily gain the upper hand in the fight.
    • It's made clear that the Dark Dragon underestimated Kim and Ron in their last fight, and wasn't using his full strength against them as a result.
    • Goliath is defeated partially because Baron and Shego were arguing so much that Goliath was unable to operate at full efficiency, even coming apart completely at one point.
  • Xanatos Gambit: Modula's plan in the first story, with him even saying that part of him was hoping the initial attack would fail. If the initial invasion succeeded, he'd have destroyed Titan and Earth would be at his mercy. If the attack was repelled somehow, which is what ended up happening? He secretly had larger rift gate generators sent through to other parts of Earth, and with the confirmation that they can now make rift gates that stay open as long as they desire, they could now send the entire Mutradi fleet through to Earth's orbit.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: Zak takes the Fang from Argost during their battle at Weird World, and in Dawn of the Dragons, he discovers that if it and its positive matter counterpart the Claw hit the same spot on an enemy at the same time the anti-matter/matter reaction produces unpredictable effects on the target, a miniature version of the weirdness produced in previous Saturday/Monday interacts. The first time it happens, the zombie dragon in question explodes.
  • You Can't Thwart Stage One:
    • In Mission Possible, Drakken manages to successfully upgrade his reactivated toys from So the Drama before the heroes can even figure out his plan.
    • In Dawn of the Dragons, the heroes are unable to stop the Dark Dragon from freeing the Leviathan.
