Campione of the Raging Tides is a Campione! fanfiction by SeerKing. It stars Jean Campbell as she slays Poseidon to become a Campione and her further adventures in preparation for a mysterious enemy that wipes out all the world's Campione every 1000 years...

Campione rise and fall, but none are ever older than a thousand years old, because every thousand years, they are mysteriously wiped out. As the end of this current millennia draws to a close, watch through the eyes of the newly risen Eighth Campione as she rises into power and stands against those who seek to end her.

Tropes:

  • Badass Gay: Jean isn't straight, and is a Campione. 'Nuff said.
  • Berserk Button: For Jean, it's people trying to force her to do things and hurting the people she cares about, like Rebecca.
  • Bi the Way: Jean, though she tends to favor women, due to her dating experiences with men being rather poor.
    • Rebecca admits that she's bi as well when she finally comes out of the closet.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Most Campione don't bother to really learn any mortal magic, because of the fact that their Authorities are more powerful in combat (with their main opponents having Anti-Magic anyways) and how they have magic groups for their day-to-day needs. Jean points out that the second reason is just stupid, and that using combat Authorities on mortals and similar foes is serious overkill.
  • Bullying a Dragon: One mage group kidnaps Rebecca to get to Jean. She responds by cursing them.
  • Composite Character: As usual in Campione. For example, Davy Jones was both Jonah and Saint David (the patron saint of Wales), both of whom are cited as inspirations behind the original Davy Jones legend to begin with.

  • Curse: One of the Authorities that Jean receives from Davy Jones is the ability to curse people who have wronged her somehow, said curses worsening while over water.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Luo Hao doesn't seem to like sexism or homophobia, and tells Yue, a lesbian member of her group, that she can join Jean's organization, saying that she may be a tyrant, but she won't keep someone so clearly unhappy in her employ if they don't want to be.
  • Fiery Redhead: Averted with Jean... unless someone bashes her Berserk Button hard.
  • Getting Eaten Is Harmless: Jean is swallowed whole by a Divine Beast snake Athena had brought, but her Campione abilities keep her alive long enough to escape without harm.
  • Graceful Loser: Athena ruefully admits she did provoke Jean, while the Eight King tried to avoid battle and only fought when cornered.
  • Advertisement:
  • Happily Adopted: Jean is the only Campione to refer to Pandora as her mother, which has some benefits, like better remembering her time in the Netherworld.
  • Heroic Willpower: Jean is able to resist Azazel's seduction abilities through sheer will and a hatred of being told what to do.
  • Hollywood Autism: Jean admits to having Asperger's syndrome, a real-life mild form of autism characterized by significant difficulty in communicating or interacting with others.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: A Discussed Trope, as one of Jean's main tasks given to her by Pandora is breaking Godou out of this, as he is considered instrumental in holding off The King of the End.
  • Incompatible Orientation: Rebecca is straight. Subverted, as it turns out she's just deep in the closet and believes that being a Hearth Priestess requires Virgin Power.
  • Irony: Jean ends up fighting Joan of Ark, her likely namesake.
  • I Will Find You: Right before dying, Athena begs Godou to locate her reincarnation and protect her, since she's going to become a Divine Ancestor and as such be hunted for her powers. Godou doesn't waste time and orders the Historical Committee to help him to do so.
  • Loophole Abuse: Hestia can temporarily descend to Earth without going Heretical, because she's dealing with an issue regarding her High Priestess, not rebelling against her legend.
  • Making a Splash: One of the powers that Jean inherited from slaying Poseidon.
  • No Social Skills: Jean has trouble reading facial expressions, forcing her to analyze them and refer to them later. See Hollywood Autism above.
  • Only Sane Woman: Jean is one of the more rational Campione, especially when compared to a certain sword-wielding one. Just don't push her Berserk Buttons.
  • Photographic Memory: Jean has an eidetic memory.
  • Sacred Hospitality: Mentally Lampshaded by Jean when Hestia and Athena are fighting, noting that it feels wrong to have Hestia fight against Athena when it was Jean's home that was threatened.
  • Sadly Mythtaken: In-Universe: Rebecca believed that Virgin Power was required for her role as Hestia's High Priestess because that's the case for Vesta (Hestia's Roman version), and she felt that it was best to act as if she was in the service of both goddesses. When Yue, who's from China, knew the truth of things when she didn't...
  • Situational Sword: Some of Jean's Authorities have specific requirements for activation. For example, she can only Curse someone who has wronged her.
  • Sneeze Cut: Happens frequently with Godou.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Azazel's seduction abilities work regardless of sexual preference.
  • Worthy Opponent: Poseidon seems to view Jean as this when she defeats him.
    • Later, Athena comes to respect her as well, even loaning her the Gorgoneion Grimoire so she can have defensive Authorities.
  • You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!: Jean is flabbergasted by the fact that Athena is attracted to Godou despite knowing his, not entirely inaccurate, reputation as The Casanova.
