Fanfic / Bad Alert: The Extreme

Go To

A musical, sadistic thriller combining four serieses into one. Done in response to a forum (link) at the KHWiki (link).

Crossover serieses are Kingdom Hearts, Ratchet & Clank and Crash Bandicoot. The song used is a Heavy Metal remix of The Extreme, from Final Fantasy VIII. All rights for each series belongs to their true owners. This video claims fair use.

The video is also canon, albeit with some doses of Broad Strokes.

  • 24-Hour Armor: Ratchet only wears his Adamantine armor in the video, which also makes sense with his red oni to Aqua's blue oni.
  • Action Girl: Aqua. Unlike in the game, the Fairy Godmother didn't try to stop her from her plot to assassinate the Tremaines.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Downplayed. Hades isn't granted a Heel–Face Turn, but he does help Aqua and Ratchet take out their enemies only because he knew that Cinderella is a Princess of Heart, and he had an alliance with Maleficent, who would soon start to collect them.
  • Adaptational Villainy
    • While already villains in their respective franchises, Bad Alert made Courtney Gears very sadistic... and also the Big Bad. She even got the Unversed eyes when she captured Ratchet, marking her as pure evil.
    • Meanwhile, Lady Tremaine and her daughters went from Rich Bitches to murderously evil, to the point where the author believes that they have absolutely NO LIGHT in their Hearts (in contrast to Cinderella having no Darkness in her's). No wonder Aqua plotted to kill all three of them.

  • Always Lawful Good: The Electrolls
  • Anyone Can Die: None of the heroes or their allies, but plenty of people die in this video. This includes every villain but Dr. Nefarious, Nina Cortex, the mayor of Blackwater City, Cinderella's father, countless Tyhrranoids, even an Electroll.
  • Badass in Distress: Aqua, after being caught by the Tremaines after her spell wore off. Ratchet was not too happy about this...
  • Black Widow: In Bad Alert canon, the reason why Cinderella is a slave was because her father was murdered by Lady Tremaine. Mind you that this video was released four years before the live-action remake.
  • Damsel in Distress: A major plot in the video is to rescue Cinderella from her evil stepfamily.
  • Darker and Edgier: The author made the video in response to the Tremaine family's role in Birth by Sleep, and eliminated all possible positive traits.. She also included her own theories such as Lady Tremaine being a Black Widow. Courtney Gears was added in and given the same monster treatment as a bonus.
  • Death by Adaptation: Courtney Gears. Unlike in her debut game, she ends up killed by Hades.

    • The Tremaines don't count, as they were killed in Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep by the Cursed Coach.
  • Death Glare: Tremaine gives one to Cinderella at the ball. Another Death Glare happens near the end of the video, during the climax where she and her daughters plan to murder Cinderella. The scene even went black and white here.
  • Deliberately Monochrome: Aqua's vision. As well as her invasion of the Tremaine Manor, also in slowmotion (to reflect old horror films such as Psycho). Also, during a closeup on the Tremaines when Cinderella escapes with Aqua. This was done to insure the seriousness of the trio's villainy.
  • The Family That Slays Together: The Tremaines. According to the video's description, Lady Tremaine murdered Cinderella's father after marrying him for his money. The whole family later attempted to murder Aqua and Cinderella before being killed from a fireball out of nowhere (Word of God confirms it was sent by Hades.)
  • Hate at First Sight: Aqua to Lady Tremaine and Courtney Gears, since she imminently saw how evil they really were.
  • The Power of Hate: Tremaine's hatred towards Cinderella is what caused her to murder her husband, treat the young girl like a slave, and wind up a target for a Keyblade-wielding assassin. Her daughters are also guilty of murder and abuse; thus, they are targeted for death, as well.
  • The Power of Love: Cinderella only survives the video because of her love for Prince Charming. It's also thanks to her love that gains the attention of the Lord of the Underworld...
  • Would Hit a Girl: Aqua and Ratchet both try to kill their villains, all four of whom are female. And the Tremaines even tried to murder the former and Cinderella. Both the Keyblade Master and Lombax, however, end up captured, and it's up to Hades, the Big Bad of Hercules, to save them by dropping fire bombs on them and sending them to the Underworld.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We never see whether or not Ven escaped from Lucifer, Terra defeating the Unversed, the conclusion of the Blackwater City battle, or Cinderella being reunited with her prince. Word of God confirms that Lucifer was killed by Ven's Light, the Galactic Rangers save Blackwater City (and elect a new mayor) and Cinderella reunited with Prince Charming.
