Code Geass: Paladins of Voltron (also available on Archive Of Our Own and Tumblr) is a Code Geass and Voltron: Legendary Defender crossover fanfic by W.I.T.C.H-and-Naruto-Girl, co-author of Raise Your Voice Against Liars along with BeeTeeDubya14.

"One day on a hiking trip, the student council from Ashford Academy discover a cave filled with lion and catlike drawings. Within the cave, they discover a huge robotic lion that is one of seven pieces to a giant robot named Voltron: the Defender of the Universe. Will Voltron be enough to free Japan?"

Currently stands at 33 chapters.

This work contains examples of:

  • 10-Minute Retirement: Suzaku briefly leaves the team in Chapter 31 after Mao revealed that Suzaku killed his father, though it was also partially to muddle the issue of the Paladin's identities. Thankfully he rejoins by the end of the chapter.
  • Adaptational Badass:
    • Milly, Rivalz, and Shirley get this as the Paladins of Voltron.
    • Lelouch, too - his Geass somehow gives him control over red and black lightning. It's hinted that this has something to do with Quintessence and his Galra heritage.
    • Allura's mother was the original purple paladin.
    • While he already was a badass in canon, Zarkon now has a "black" Geass.
    • Haggar gives Mao a "black" Geass upgrade that lets him see a person's greatest fears and bring them to life before their eyes.
    • Nunnally briefly serves as Yoru’s pilot during Suzaku's 10-Minute Retirement.
  • Adaptational Early Appearance:
      Advertisement:
    • Nonette, who never showed up until the opening of R2, appears at the end of Tears of the Balmera, revealing she's recognized Rai as Prince Zephyr.
    • Lotor and his generals appear a whole season before they are even mentioned, watching Lelouch's speech as Zero.
    • Not a person, but the various methods used to make flying Knightmares (such as the float system) didn't make an appearance until the middle of the first season. Here, prototype version is deployed just after the Battle of Narita in order to defend the Avalon while it carries Nunnally.
    • The pool aboard the Castle of Lions debuts during the Return to Earth arc, when Sugiyama suggests using water therapy to help Nunnally relearn how to walk. Nunnally still laughs over how everyone reacted to learning that the pool is on the ceiling.
  • Adaptation Deviation:
    • For the sake of allowing the Ashford Student Council (except for Nina) to become the Paladins of Voltron, there are seven lions this time around, instead of five. The original lions are the Purple and Orange ones.
    • Lelouch's claim of knowing C.C.'s name in this story is not true, as since C.C. never had to bail him out at Narita, he never learned her true name.
  • Adaptation Distillation: Given that there are seven paladins instead of five in this story, this was bound to happen.
    • For one thing, it's the Black Paladin who decides to leave the team in Fall of the Castle of Lions, instead of the Green Paladin.
    • Additionally, while one of the Paladins does have their 'head hole' image constantly fizzle (it's Kallen, and for roughly the same reason as Pidge in Legendary Defender, ironically enough), this isn't what causes them to fail in uniting their minds. Instead, it's Lelouch thinking about the assassination of his mother.
    • Voltron first creates its "Mega Sword" during the mission to rescue Tohdoh rather than during the mission to rescue the Ark of Taujeer.
    • Since Suzaku is with the Paladins at the time, it's Nonette who is used as bait to attempt to kill Zero via missile barrage.
    • Rather than Suzaku peeping on Kallen when the latter is bathing in a waterfall on Kamine Island, it's Nonette peeping on Rai. And it's Nonette who ends up immobilized, due to being too stunned at seeing Rai again to react when he uses his Bayard on her.
  • Adaptation Expansion:
    • Since the story is focused on the Ashford Student Council (except for Nina), Shirley, Rivalz, Milly, and Rai get a hefty dose of this.
    • Some Assembly Required has an extra scene added where Lelouch and Coran play a chess game after C.C. points out that they'll also need to test the Paladins' ability to think strategically. Lelouch trounces him, but both find the game enjoyable, and it's clear Lelouch regards Coran as a Worthy Opponent.
    • Return of the Gladiator features a scene on Earth that was not present in the original, revealing that the team's absence has been noted.
    • Chapter 11 is the biggest example so far, as it is a completely original scene where Lelouch reveals the truth about himself and C.C. The only part of the chapter from either of the source materials is the launching of The Castle Of Lions.
    • The end of Crystal Venom has scenes from Earth, starting with Jeremiah and Villetta storming the Ashford Student Council Room in search of Lelouch and Nunnally, only to meet with Nonette and find that their records have been erased. It ends with Sayoko and Nunnally at a safe house overlooking the ocean, with Nunnally worried for her brother, while Sayoko looks over something Lelouch asked her to bring with her.
  • Adult Fear: As of Chapter Eight, Ohgi, Euphie, Cornelia, and Nunnally are now aware that people they consider family is missing, with no idea where they are or how to find them.
  • All There in the Manual: Some parts of the story are only explained by the author in her notes or conversations with fans. For example, Rivalz's Geass has yet to be named in story, but a conversation with another author has stated that it's the Geass of Absolute Protection.
  • Ascended Extra:
    • Milly, Shirley, and Rivalz get this treatment as members of the Paladins of Voltron.
    • Due to being Spared by the Adaptation, Rover also gets quite a few more scenes than it had in canon.
    • In a much more minor example, the aliens that Pidge encountered in Across the Universe (here met by Rai and Shirley) end up joining the Paladins and move into the Castle of Lions, wheres in canon they only make a few cameos.
  • Audience Participation: The author has posted two polls so far, the first of which was to ask who, if any, of the other paladins, would get Geass, and the other to ask if they should give their lions special names beside their colors. Turns out, they were happy with all of them getting Geass. There was also a review based poll to determine who would end up with who in this story. Based on the tags the story has on Archive of Our Own, the final pairings are Lelouch and Kallen, Rai and Shirley, Rivalz and Milly, and Suzaku and Euphemia.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: An inverted example - the pink aliens from Across the Universe (who live in the vacuum of space) are able to function perfectly well inside an atmosphere (in this case, within the Castle of Lions), despite the various problems that would pose (such as not being pancaked by gravity).
  • Black Comedy: C.C. can't help but laugh when the Arusians attempt to sacrifice themselves as a peace offering after they think they've offended the Lion Goddess.
  • Bottle Episode: Cheering Mao is this in function - aside from the Paladins, a few of the Black Knights, Allura, Coran, and Mao, most of the cast is ignorant of what's happening. Haggar shows up at the very end of the chapter, though, to offer Mao a chance at revenge against the Paladins.
  • Bring My Brown Pants: A good portion of Cornelia's troops, including the Knightmare pilots, wet their trousers when Voltron reveals himself in Zero's Return.
  • Butt-Monkey: Tamaki really can't catch a break - he ends up getting kicked into the red lion, and then passes out from shock when Voltron unveils itself.
  • Composite Character: Despite there being seven Paladins as opposed to five, some of the Ashford Student Council have traits from multiple members of the Legendary Defender Paladins.
    • Lelouch has traits of Shiro (being The Leader of the group, and possessing the ability to interact with Galra technology, though through the usage of Geass rather than a cybernetic arm) and Keith (being a human-Galra hybrid).
    • Kallen combines both Keith (Red Paladin, right hand of the leader, has a close combat themed Bayard) and Pidge (being a girl, Living a Double Life prior to becoming a Paladin, and having a Memento Macguffin from her elder brother that she wears in public).
  • Compressed Adaptation: Atsuhi Sawasaki and the Chinese Federation invade Kyushu a day or so after the mission to rescue Tohdoh. Canonically, this doesn't happen until after the Battle of Shikine Island (which is Adapted Out here)
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • As in Legendary Defender, the Red Paladin is no match for Emperor Zarkon, and that still holds here, even when Suzaku is backing Kallen up.
    • The Paladins, in turn, get one in their favor during Chapter 23, Zero's Return, as Cornelia's forces have nothing on the Lions.
      • Special mention goes to how Lelouch defeats Cornelia - he completely dominates the fight, and while he spares her, Zenobia utterly demolishes her Gloucester.
      • When Voltron is finally formed, he demolishes Cornelia's ground forces with only a few energy blasts. He then obliterates her aerial ones with a single slash of his sword, forcing her to retreat lest she loses what few men she still has left at that point.
  • Curb Stomp Cushion: While the Paladins still get crushed by the gladiator in Some Assembly Required, this time around, they manage to win the fight.
  • Cutting the Knot: The minute Allura tries to bring up the similarities between herself and Lelouch, he simply uses his Geass to learn what, exactly, she's talking about.
  • Decomposite Character: A few, since there are now seven Paladins instead of five.
    • Shirley and Milly take traits from Hunk, with Shirley being the one who goes to the Balmera and finds her lion on a Galra mining colony, while Milly is the one to inherit Hunk's cooking and mechanical skills.
    • Lelouch and Rai are a decomposite of Shiro, with the former having Shiro's position of the Black Paladin and the latter being the one who was kidnapped by the Galra.
  • Defeating the Undefeatable:
    • In Chapter 23, Lelouch and Voltron successfully defeat Cornelia, the Goddess of Victory, marking the first time she has ever been defeated.
    • Doubled down in chapter 26, where Lelouch defeats Schneizel, something he never managed to do in canon (at least in a fair fight).
  • Didn't Think This Through: While Charles' plan to deal with Zero is rather sound, he never considers that Lelouch might've changed enough during his journey to cause the plan to lose its effectiveness.
  • Didn't See That Coming:
    • While the possibility of the Paladins not being able to be one in mind did not elude Coran, he's completely flat-footed when the mind-meld fails due to Lelouch thinking about the assassination of his mother, as this had never happened before.
    • Charles' plan to capture Lelouch using Nunnally gets totally derailed due to several of these factors, specifically the Unknown Knowns: first, he wasn't anticipating all of the Paladins to show up, second, he didn't know just how versatile the Lions were, third, he had no way of knowing that the Lions have an empathic bond with their Paladins and could move on their own power if necessary, and last but not least, he didn't know that Lelouch's friends would be able to convince him not to go after Nunnally without a plan in mind.
    • Mao's plan to try and get the Paladins to take him to the Castle of Lions runs into a few problems: first, that Suzaku would know how to focus himself enough to straight out nullify his powers, second, that the Paladins had Rover on standby to mimic C.C. (who as a robot cannot have its mind read, thus allowing it to fool Mao with a hologram), and third, that Lelouch had also brought Sayoko with him, who knew the same technique as Suzaku to silence her thoughts.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: The Lions mostly match up with their Voltron: Legendary Defender selves, but with some differences due to the new ones added into the roster.
  • Dramatic Irony:
  • Elemental Powers: Each lion is themed after an element detailed under Divergent Character Evolution, and these powers have been demonstrated in several chapters:
    • Aka, the Red Lion, has a flamethrower.
    • Polaris, the Blue Lion, has a Freeze Ray.
    • Maeraka, the Yellow Lion, can release blinding light to disable enemies.
    • Yoru can generate an Unrealistic Black Hole.
  • Family of Choice: Alfor tells Lelouch that this is what he came to view the original paladins as something Lelouch comes to realize is the case with his team as well.
  • Foil: The Galra Empire can be considered one to the Holy Britannian Empire. Both are tyrannical empires who have conquered countless people and taken away their freedom. The main difference is that Britannia at least gives the conquered people a chance to become "Honorary Britannians," while no such thing exists with the Galra.
  • For Want of a Nail:
    • Rover is still around, as Lelouch uses his Geass to deal with Sendak.
    • The JLF is still kicking as Cornelia has other things to focus on after Narita.
    • Diethard never joins the Black Knights, due to Zero not being around to get his offer.
  • Foreshadowing: When Allura watches Suzaku and Lelouch arguing about how Britannia should be opposed, she briefly feels as though she is watching her father argue with 'someone else'. It's implied she's thinking about her father and Zarkon talking about whether or not they should use the Quintessence.
  • Fusion Fic: In this story, the members of the Ashford Student Council (except for Nina) become the Paladins of Voltron.
  • Half-Truth: Lelouch gives one to Allura when he decides to return to Earth, saying it is because he wants to make sure his sister Nunnally is safe from his father. Unlike most examples, everything he says is completely true, but he leaves out that he has other reasons to head back to Earth - namely, that he wants to overthrow Britannia to prepare the planet for when the Galra arrive.
  • He's Back: Having spent quite a bit of time off Earth, Lelouch makes sure that the world knows that Zero has returned in Chapter 23.
  • History Repeats: Lelouch and Suzaku's arguments during Confessions and Revelations are heavily implied to have similarities to ones that were had by Zarkon and Alfor when they were the Paladins.
  • Humiliation Conga: Cornelia is subjected to a massive one at Narita. In order: what should have been a Curb-Stomp Battle in her favor is derailed by the arrival of the Paladins of Voltron, who begin dismantling her forces. Then, the Black Lion shows up and utterly destroys her Knightmare, handing her the first defeat she has ever faced. Then, the Lions form Voltron and take out a sizable portion of her remaining forces, leading the survivors to call a retreat. Then, Zero makes his return, reveals Voltron is a weapon of the Black Knights, and then calls for all of Britannia to surrender or face the consequences.
  • Hypocrite:
    • Lelouch calls Suzaku one in Chapter 11, pointing out that, for all the latter says about opposing rebellion, he's supporting one right now by being the Purple Paladin.
    • Lelouch accuses Allura of this during Rai's Escape, pointing out how she wanted him to share his secrets regarding his heritage even though she willingly hid the fact that Zarkon was the original Black Paladin. Suzaku notes that this could work both ways, though.
    • According to Mao, while Allura wants to protect other races in the universe from being destroyed by Zarkon like her people were, she is perfectly willing to completely wipe out the Galra to do so, even though not all of the Galra are fighting with Zarkon, which he giddily points out would make her no better than Zarkon or Charles. She doesn't take it well.
  • Internal Reveal:
    • As of the end of Chapter 8, Return of the Gladiator, Jeremiah, Euphie, Cornelia, Viletta, and Charles and Marianne are aware that Lelouch is still alive.
    • Chapter 11, Confessions and Revelations, has Lelouch reveals that he is a Britannian Prince and is also Zero, while C.C. explains a bit about Geass.
    • Chapter 22, Rai's Escape, has Lelouch realize that his father has Geass and used it to alter his memories about Marianne's death. And during a later conversation with C.C., he learns that she knew Charles, as well as the fact that Charles got his powers from V.V.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: While Lelouch deciding to leave the team is incredibly selfish, he's not wrong about how Britannia being ruled as-is will only make fighting off the Galra more difficult for humanity. Especially since, in canon, his parents were working on an Assimilation Plot while his brother tried to subjugate the world using a nuke-equipped flying fortress.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: In Chapter 23, after Voltron decimates her forces effortlessly, an infuriated Cornelia orders her men to withdraw from Narita, making this the first defeat she's ever suffered.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Given Milly's antics throughout this story, this seems to be in effect when she is the one knocked out by the Nunvill.
  • Last Chance to Quit: An inverted example. Zero's speech announcing his return in chapter 23 ends with him delivering an ultimatum to Charles and all of Britannia: either they surrender unconditionally to Voltron, or else Voltron will annihilate their entire empire.
  • The Law of Diminishing Defensive Effort: Defied during the Battle of Narita - Lelouch explicitly advises the Paladins to use Voltron's shield to block a hail of gunfire and missiles from Cornelia's army in order to make the Britannians think they might have a chance to win.
  • Meaningful Name: The names given to the Lions by their Paladins:
    • Kallen names the Red Lion "Aka," Japanese for red.
    • Rai names the Green Lion "Zerith," which means feeling, adaptable and noble.
    • Milly names the Yellow Lion "Maeraka," Arabic for battle.
    • Rivalz, ironically, had the most trouble, suggesting Calypso, Sheila, Nori, Cassie (short for Cassiopeia), Miranda, even Ariel for the Blue Lion's name before settling on Polaris.
    • Suzaku names the Purple Lion "Yoru," meaning night in Japanese.
    • Shirley struggled when naming the Orange Lion before C.C. suggests "Zinnia" note .
    • Lelouch names the Black Lion "Zenobia," after the third-century queen of Syria.
  • Memento Macguffin: In this story, it's revealed that Lelouch won something that belonged to his mother (who got it from her father, who in turn received it from his wife) in a chess match, which he then entrusted to Sayoko. It's a Blade of Mamora Knife.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Suzaku's Bayard takes the form of a katana (albeit one with a European hilt/cross-guard). Suzaku did indeed wield a katana with great skill in Code Geass: Tales of an Alternate Shogunate.
    • Just like with Pidge in Legendary Defender, Kallen's mental picture is of herself and her brother, though this time around, the team assumes that Naoto is her boyfriend (since Kallen isn't hiding her gender).
    • Kallen's Bayard takes the form of a clawed gauntlet, just like her Guren's Radiant Wave Surger. Later events in The Rise of Voltron indicate it actually is a mini-version of the Radiant Wave Surger.
    • Milly comments on Allura's bust size, just like she did with Shirley in Episode 3 of Code Geass. In another Call-Back, Shirley's hair stands on end (as does Kallen's) when Milly starts the comment, knowing exactly what is about to happen.
    • When he decides to leave the Paladins, so he can return to Earth to overthrow Britannia, Lelouch muses that Allura could likely be one of the Paladins and take his place as the leader of Voltron. Allura did become one of the Paladins in Season Three of Legendary Defender.
    • When thinking about the members of his family that still care for him and Nunnally, Lelouch brings up Marrybel.
    • Charles’ plan to defeat Voltron hinges on Lelouch abandoning his allies to rescue Nunnally, exactly what he did at the end of R1. This time, though, his friends manage to calm him fast enough to allow for him to consider a better plan of action.
    • Shirley's confrontation with Viletta in Chapter 26 is highly reminiscent of their confrontation in canon at Port Yokosuka.
      • It also bares more than a passing resemblance to Lelouch and Suzaku's confrontation at the end of R1.
    • In Chapter 27, when Allura, Rivalz, Shirley, Milly, and Rai visit Shinjuku, Allura changes her appearance into her design in the original Voltron series.
  • Named by the Adaptation:
    • Rai's (first) name is stated to be 'Zephyr' by the rescued Galra prisoners. His mother and sister's names are Erina and Sophronia, respectively.
    • The same is true for the Lions, who are each given meaningful names by their respective Paladins.
  • Nerdgasm: Lloyd's reaction to seeing the Blue Lion is... interesting, to say the least, and even this pales in comparison to when he first beholds Voltron in all his glory.
  • Not His Sled: A few examples:
    • The Green Paladin isn't the one that causes the mind meld in Some Assembly Required to fail - it's the Black one.
    • The same is the case about the Paladin that chooses to leave the team in Fall of the Castle of Lions.
    • A more minor one, but unlike in the series, the attempts to create a chant succeed this time around.
    • Once again, it is implied that Lelouch, the Black Paladin, is the member of Team Voltron who is part Galra.
  • Nurture over Nature: An interesting example with Lelouch - while he inherited strengths and flaws from Charles and Marianne (piloting skill, strategic thinking, and manipulation), it's implied that his upbringing brought out the absolute best parts of his Galra heritage, with none of the flaws.
  • Oh, Crap!: C.C.'s reaction to learning that Mao kidnapped Allura in Chapter 27.
  • OOC Is Serious Business:
    • Everyone feels this way in regards to Kallen being so much more assertive and lacking in her sickly demeanor. Of course, readers know that this is simply how she normally acts.
    • In a more serious case, C.C. is downright terrified of Haggar, noting that she only felt this afraid before was when she first meet V.V.
    • Suzaku is understandably worried when he sees Lelouch react with pure terror when he learns that Charles has found Nunnally.
  • Positive Friend Influence: Lelouch having people he can completely trust has made him far nicer than he was in canon, while also allowing him to grow as a leader. Additionally, he's sorted through a fair amount of his family issues that, in canon, costed him dearly.
  • Reality Ensues:
    • Whenever Britannian Knightmares go up against the Lions (let alone Voltron) they're slaughtered in droves, be they Mooks or an Ace Pilot like Cornelia. Even a Knight of the Round piloting the Lancelot doesn't last much longer than anyone else. For all the advances the Britannians have made in Knightmare production, the Lion's are supernatural alien technology that, even in the hands of inexperienced teenagers, are leagues above even the most advanced Knightmare.
    • Voltron may be the Defender of the Universe, but it can only be in one place at a time. Additionally, there is only so much the seven paladins can do with the numbers they have. This convinces Lelouch to head back to Earth and bring the Black Knights into the Voltron Coalition, in order to provide the Paladins much needed support.
    • Lelouch has never won any game against Schneizel, in part because Schneizel is established as being both a better planner and better at adapting to changes than Lelouch was. When Lelouch has to go against Schneizel to rescue Nunnally, however, his elder brother gets trounced because Schneizel has no meaningful way of working around Voltron's power. There's also no way he could turn the paladins against Lelouch because the latter was completely honest about his past to his friends - he can't reveal Lelouch's secrets because the exiled prince already did that himself.
    • Coran notes that even if the castle was used to fix Nunnally's legs, she wouldn't just be able to walk on her own - she's been in a wheelchair for seven years, and would need a lot of physical therapy to build up the strength in her leg muscles before she could consider walking again.
  • Running Gag:
    • Throughout the early chapters, C.C. will appear from nowhere, to the confusion or consternation of someone else.
    • Another one is someone wondering just where Lelouch found C.C., given her antics.
  • Sci-Fi Writers Have No Sense of Scale: While talking with the Black Knights, Lelouch claims that the Galra Empire is older than mankind. While the Empire is certainly older than human civilization (being over ten thousand years old), human beings have existed for over 350,000 years.
  • Shout-Out: Despite the alternate history of the Code Geass world, some real-life pop culture do exist, weirdly enough.
  • Smart People Play Chess: In addition to Lelouch, Coran is also an avid chess player, as was Allura's father.
  • Spanner in the Works: C.C. following the Paladins to the Castle of Lions is this for Charles and Marianne, as this puts her beyond the range where the latter can track her.
  • Spared by the Adaptation:
    • A reply to a question posted by a reviewer stated that Euphemia would not die in this story.
    • Due to taking the role of Pidge's father and brother, as well as Rai getting his Geass from the Galra Druids instead of a Code Bearer, Rai's mother and sister avoided their canonical death by Geass.
    • Since Lelouch used his Geass to deal with Haxxus, Rover is still functioning.
    • Due to Kallen not using the Guren at Narita, Jeremiah is spared from being fried by the Radiant Wave Surger (granted, he survived that, but only by being turned into a cyborg).
    • It's also implied that Shirley's father was spared, as the landslide that killed him never happened.
  • The Stations of the Canon:
    • Per Word of God, major deviations from Voltron canon won't happen until the story reaches the end of the first season of Voltron: Legendary Defender. Sure enough, they diverge after meeting Ulaz when they decide to retun to Earth immediately.
    • Note, however, that this is not the case in regards to Code Geass canon - see Internal Reveal for the first example.
      • That said, they hit the major events of the middle of season one once they return to Earth.
  • Super Empowering: In Tears of the Balmera, when they are stuck in Galra captivity, C.C. gives Shirley The Geass of Absolute Concealment. She later gives The rest of the Paladins (save Suzaku) Geass as well.
  • Tempting Fate: At the end of Return of the Gladiator, Lelouch states that part of the reason he wants to go back to Earth is because, if he's reported missing, it'll only take one look at his picture for someone to recognize him as a former Britannian Prince. Sure enough, during the final scene on Earth, the Student Council's disappearance is announced, with Cornelia, Euphemia, Jeremiah, and, worst of all, CHARLES all recognizing Lelouch's picture.
  • Undying Loyalty: Even after what Lelouch said about Zen when he learned Zarkon was her former Paladin, she doesn’t hesitate to save him, Nunnally, and Sayoko.
  • Wham Episode:
    • Crystal Venom: The final scene ends with Sayoko looking over something Lelouch told her to look after, and though Sayoko hasn't taken it out of its cover, she can tell that its a knife.
    • The Black Paladin: Not only do we learn that Zarkon was the Black Paladin, it's also revealed that he has Geass!
    • Zero's Return: Somehow, Schneizel has found Nunnally.
    • Message From Kyoto: How to start? Haggar is coming to Earth, investigating why Zarkon can't get a fix on the Black Lion. And Charles has Nunnally, practically using her to manipulate Lelouch while declaring war on Voltron!
    • Reunion Over The Pacific: Haggar has arrived at Earth, and found the unconscious Jeremiah.
    • I Order You: For the first time since the Paladins returned Earth, Britainnia hands them a crushing defeat.
    • Isle of the Gods: Lelouch and Rai find out Haggar is on Earth, Rai learns his past from Nonette, Euphie and Nonette are both taken back to the Castle, and Zen destroys the Kamine Island Thought Elevator.
  • Wham Line:
    • The last line of Rai's Escape:
      Lelouch: Plot a course for Earth.
  • Your Worst Nightmare: In chapter 30, it's revealed that with Mao's upgraded "black" Geass, if he can see someone's face, it allows him to see their worst fears and bring them to life before their eyes.
