Fanfic / Fantasy Blitzkrieg

Go To

Fantasy Blitzkrieg is a series of Alternate Universe Touhou Project Fan Fic written by a user called Lt Colonel Summers on Fanfiction.net. The series consist of separate "Missions" each with separate storylines within the same continuity.

Summaries:

Mission One: Yukari warns Reimu that the Outsiders is close to the point of discovering Gensokyo. Reimu doesn't seem very worried at first, but when Yukari mentions something about Anti-Magic Technology... Meanwhile in the Outside World, a strange energy fluctuation is detected in southern Asahi (Japan by a different name), and the Humanity Military Forces decides to send in their best...

Mission 2: One month after the Fantasy Blitzkrieg Incident, Gensokyo was in high alert of something very big: the disappearance of the Glossary of Gensokyo. Investigations determined that the book is now in the hands of Jack Summers, the man responsible for the Incident. To prevent a hopeless war from starting, Yukari decided to send in the resident Incident solvers, to the Outside World...

The series has been discontinued as of October 31st, 2016, with Mission Three only partway completed. The reason for its discontinuation was cited by Lt Colonel Summers as it becoming so confusing that he has effectively cornered himself into a Writer's Block that prevented him from being able to continue the story.

On August 23rd, 2020, almost four years since the story has been discontinued, an Alternate Continuity Spin-Off titled Fantasy Blitzkrieg: Mission Two - Operation Alexandria is published by a user called Omega E The Reader, with permission from Lt Colonel Summers to use the Fantasy Blitzkrieg universe. This Spin-Off is written to be a Take That! toward the FB series as a whole, as Omega used his own Original Characters from his Phamtasmverse setting to quite literally tear up the FB universe's Outside World.

Tropes contained in the Fantasy Blitzkrieg series:

     The original series 
  • Artistic License – Physics: The author himself has admitted that the Daughters Of Liberty should not have survived the Mechanical Broom going at near-supersonic speeds without shielding. This crosses with Biology as well with the girls surviving it.
  • A-Team Firing: Averted. LT and his Red Shirts were all able to hit their targets with good accuracy. Often times they aim ahead of fast-moving target's trajectory too.
  • Badass Crew: The First Division of RAIDERS.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Harrison, LT's right hand man.
  • BFG: Takagi Kobayashi's Piercing Rifle, when placed horizontally, is almost taller than he is. It also has the most bizarre ammo out of all Outside World guns...
  • BFS: David Fomes wields one Final Fantasy style.
    • So do Edge Calloway. His is more like something from a stereotypical Anime.
  • Bond One-Liner
    Remilia: I can outsmart bullets!
    Red Shirt: [Shoots Remilia in the face point-blank] Outsmart this!
    Remilia: [Regenerates] Outsmarted!
  • Brick Joke: Meiling gets tossed into the sky by David Fomes when LT and gang first encounters her. She doesn't come back down until halfway through Mission One, where she gets launched again by Yuugi.
    • After that, Meiling doesn't come back down until the beginning of Mission Two, where Sakuya launches her.
    • This one is almost a Running Gag...
  • Catchphrase: Walther would like to remind you that he's The Juggernaut, bitch!
  • Chekhov's Gun: In the Beginning of Mission Two, Sakuya was able to launch Meiling into the sky as though she has super strength. Fast forward to the battle with Edge Calloway, where Sakuya throws a desk at the Raider to defeat him.
    • At one point in Mission One, Reimu notices that the tea in her cup literally disappeared into thin air. Readers would have suspected Yukari at this point. Fast forward to the final battle of the same book, where Yukari does the same to LT's bullets.
  • Chekhov's Gag: Sakuya's Pads. Only mentioned exactly once by Marisa in Mission One. In Mission Two, it ends up saving Sakuya's life from Elisa.
  • City of Canals: Bevelle might as well be a Country Of Canals. There's also Canal City, which represents London.
  • Cool Gun: The STI employees are armed with these. So are the Outside World's militaries.
  • Cool Plane: The GA-Raider.
    • The Lunar Kingdom also has the Lunar Gunships, which enters the Earth's atmosphere as a meteor, and unfolding into a VTOL right before they crash.
  • Cool Ship: The Salvation-class Battle-Carriers. Island-sized mass of metal with a heck load of firepower. We have the RSS Pacific Rim, HMS Atlantic Rim, The Soviet's Vladimir Lenin, and the ADS Yamato 5.
  • Cool Sword: LT's Zantankuto Sword, and to a lesser extent, The Red Shirts' Zantetsu-Maru.
  • Corporate Samurai: Almost everybody who works at the STI are skilled with a katana, even a Gun Nut like Harrison.
  • Dirty Communists: Of all the countries to fit this trope, Gensokyo is the Dirty Commies this time around...
    • Not like the country has any choice. The author has stated that, without Yukari to control things, Gensokyo will be facing a massive civil unrest and riot, thus becoming a true Crapsack World.
    • The Outside World also has Soviet Malkrantia which, strangely enough, isn't Communist despite the name.
    • According to the in-story dialogues, Soden and North Korania were also Communists. The latter can be understood since it represents North Korea, while the former, representing South Africa, is not thoroughly explained...
  • Exact Words: When Cirno gets annoyed by Rumia constantly saying "Is that so~?", the former asks the latter if she can say something different. Rumia proceeds to say "So~ Nanoka?". Cirno facepalms.
  • Everything's Deader with Zombies: The Zombie Fairies. While they were just normal fiaires into cosplay in the games, Fantasy Blitzkrieg turns them into actual undeads, complete with the need to feed on living flesh. Thankfully they can only turn other fairies and ignore other types of Youkai completely.
  • Expy: The Outside World has a military force called RAIDERS, and it is supported by a Mega-Corp. Final Fantasy VII, anyone?
    • Not to mention that the STI also has Red Shirts called Turks.
    • Speaking of the Turks, the author's description of their appearance is to tell us to imagine Vincent Valentine and Auron.
  • Flipping the Bird: LT did this twice in Mission One. First at the Scarlet Devil Army while escaping Hakugyokurou, second at the Moon Defense Corps while infiltrating Eientei.
  • Godzilla Threshold: It's literally called the Threshold of Godzilla when Prime Minister Suzuki mentions how much everything regarding the Daughters have gone to hell, and extreme measures should be taken to deal with them.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Any dialogue that isn't spoken by a Gensokyian, Bevellan or Registanian, except for a few are in the speaker's native language. There's Japanese, Chinese, Russian, German...
    • At least they weren't Google-translated...
  • The Great Offscreen War: The original characters keep mentioning a "STICK War" that has happened in the past.
  • Hammer and Sickle Removed for Your Protection: Averted. The Soviets have adopted the symbol as their military sigil.
  • Healing Factor: Remilia regenerates from being shot by an anti-tank machine gun in the face point-blank.
    • Exaggerated with the Lunarians. Eirin first survives getting an artery near her neck punctured without side-effects. Then after LT defeats Yukari, Kaguya was seen regenerating a half-destroyed head!
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": Sort of. LT's full name is Lieutenant Colonel Jack Summers. Yes, "Lieutenant Colonel" is part of his name.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: Played straight with the Outside World's militaries. Exaggerated with the ABCN whom were unable to hit a target that is standing still...
  • Istanbul (Not Constantinople): What also makes Fantasy Blitzkrieg stands out is that each nations in the Outside World apparently have different names. For example, Japan is called Asahi; China is Chugoku; Soviet Russia is Soviet Malkrantia; Nazi Germany is Necopolis; the United Kingdoms is Bevelle; and the United States is Registan...
    • "Risk"-Style Map: Necopolis apparently occupies the entire Europe, minus the UK.
  • The Juggernaut: Walther. His subtitle is even "The Juggernaut"!
  • Knife Nut: We already have Sakuya in canon, but this Fanfic introduces Elisa, who is an even bigger one, and is apparently a super soldier too...
  • Large Ham: Adolf Von Duer, the Fuhrer of Necopolis.
    [[Film/Downfall Fegelein! Fegelein!]] FEGELEIN!
  • MacGuffin: The Zero Point Modules in Mission One, and the Tome Of Gensokyo in Mission 2.
  • Made of Explodium: That jar of (not) Crystal Meth in Eirin's Laboratory explodes after LT throws it onto the floor.
    • All the vehicles in Gensokyo explodes Michael Bay-style when destroyed.
    • Inverted in Bevelle where nothing explodes. Not even missiles... At least not with pyrotechnics.
    • We also have the Boomer, a pistol wherein each of it's bullets are loaded with a single drop of Di-Lithium Phosporous-A. Each of those bullets packed as much explosive force as a RPG. Thankfully it isn't volatile (but it's B counterpart apparently is), only being detonated by pressing a small button on the same Boomer that it was fired or ejected from.
    • Cirno's head seems to be prone to exploding...
  • Meaningful Name: Asahi is of course, Japanese for "Rising Sun".
    • Necopolis. Add an R and you'll get Necropolis, as in "City Of The Dead" in Latin. The surface of Necopolis has become inhospitable due to pollution, so this name seems to fit very well.
    • Subverted with the other nations. Chugoku is a Japanese name yet represents China. Registan also sounds very Middle-Eastern, but it is the United States. And there doesn't seem to be any meaning behind Malkrantia, Bevelle, Soden and Korania.
    • The Nation Leaders in Mission Two also mentioned Latusia, Lebow, Vadine, Nausicca and Sakafjordur. The last one sounds Icelandic, and is really Iceland. However nothing is said about the other four...
  • Mega-Corp: The Summers Technology Industries, also known as The STI. With LT as the CEO.
  • Memetic Badass: LT appears to be this In-Universe.
  • My Hovercraft Is Full of Eels: Snow Valleys, after getting mocked by Tasnil Dmitri, responds with a taunt, which was translated literally as this in Klingon.
  • Name's the Same: In-Universe. There's now Alice Margatroid and Alice Lou among the casts.
    • They both have a doll animated by magic. Both are called Shanghai...
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Nec(r)opolis.
  • N.G.O. Superpower: Apparently LT has control over political matters...
  • Noodle Implements: Marisa's potions. Nobody, not even the in-series characters have any idea how she brews them.
    • The way Marisa uses some of them just makes it a bigger enigma. For example, a vial was used against the FBI in Registan as a flash grenade.
  • Noodle Incident: It appears that Marisa was banned from entering the Scarlet Devil Mansion for another reason aside from stealing books...
    • Sakuya tells Marisa not to get started on that horrible brew...
    • Mission Two: Just how did that 15-year old kid gets his hands on nuclear launch codes?
    • Also Mission Two: Apparently The Artillery Twins has smashed about four Josef Stalin statues prior to the story.
    • Mission Two again: The Nazis were apparently experimenting with weather control, and it went wrong...
  • No Swastikas: Averted. Not only were the Nazis mentioned by name in the story, they didn't even try to disguise the Swastika!
  • Nuclear Weapons Taboo: Asahi represents Japan, so naturally this trope should be in place. Instead it is subverted by Takatsu Suzuki mentioning nuclear arsenal in name.
  • Only One Name: Walther and Elisa were only referred to by their first names.
  • Our Presidents Are Different: The Nation Leaders decides to fight the Daughters Of Liberty personally once they watch their nation getting kicked in the ass.
  • Precision F-Strike: LT said this both times he flipped the bird in Mission One. In Mission Two, The Romanov pilots and Cloud upon defeat.
  • Red Shirt: The STI Guards and Turks in Mission One. Incidentally, they seem to last a lot longer than the usual Red Shirts, taking the entire Mission One before they all get Killed Off for Real.
  • Running Gag: Meiling getting launched into the sky, and then coming back down after about halfway past the Missions.
    • LT trying to convince Registan that magic exists, and fails all the time.
    • There seems to be a familiar kid whose father is always on the receiving end of events caused by the protagonist. His name happens to be Watanabe...
    DDDAAAAADDD!
  • Schizo Tech: Gensokyo is already this in canon, but the Outside World, 22nd Century and all, apparently still uses revolvers...
    • Bevelle appears to be still using propeller planes...
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: The Nation Leaders and LT decides to GTFO once they have enough of getting mocked by Yukari.
    • The Allied Bevelle Commonwealth Navy literally said this when they see their Prime Minister being handed his own ass.
  • Separated by a Common Language: Edge at one point said that "They (Daughters Of Liberty) still has spots...". Those of you not familiar with British English should replace "spots" with "zits". Not that the Daughters have any...
  • Shooting Superman: Averted in Mission One where LT, Harrison and the Red Shirts all know when something is Immune to Bullets.
  • Shout-Out: Loads...
  • Soviet Superscience: Soviet Malkrantia gets a lot of good toys in a similar manner as [1]. Tanks with multiple touch screen-controlled turrets, fighter planes with laser Gatling guns, Cruise Missiles accurate enough to target a single person, etc... They did a good job trying to catch up with the Nazis. Speaking of the Nazis...
  • Stupid Jetpack Hitler: They really have jetpack Nazis in Necopolis. They also have AI-controlled Action Bomb tanks, machine guns with electrifying bullets, Deflector Shields...
    • According to Sakuya, the Jaeger Retaliation Tanks apparently have their prototypes thought of during World War 2. In other words, the Nazis really are more advanced in this history.
  • Super Soldier: The Raiders. Interesting that they aren't genetic modifications or serum-induced, but naturally born.
  • Take That!: LT tells a Soviet conscript that friendship is not magic and it does not bring harmony.
  • Tanks for Nothing: The Outside World deployed loads of tanks, and still get their ass handed by five teenage magical girls...
  • Theme Naming: The Scarlet Devil Army named their tanks .495 Scarlet Wing, and their helicopters .500 Scarlet Fang. If you know the ages of Remilia and Flandre in canon, the numbers on those vehicles should have an obvious meaning to you.
    • Also the Outside World with their militaries. At least some of them did. Other nations apparently tossed in whichever words they could thought of at the moment when naming their hardwares.
    • The Imperial Asahi Military Force have Tsuchigumo Tanks and Yuki-Onna Helicopters, named after different kinds of Youkai.
  • This Page Will Self-Destruct: The video player thing that was airdropped by the STI to Walther and Elisa.
    Harrison: Oh, and starting from this point, this device will self destruct in five seconds...

     Operation Alexandria 
  • Aborted Arc: The STI's plans to capture Koishi and the Three Fairies from Mission Three went up in smokes the moment Pliskin Snake got disposed of by Phantasmverse!Satori and her Rin. In addition, the Alexandria Crew has become such a huge threat that LT decided to axe the plot and focus all available resources in fighting the Crew.
  • Adapted Out:
    • Due to the Alexandria Crew being sent in their stead, the Daughters of Liberty is never formed, and the FBverse's Reimu and Marisa only made a cameo.
    • The subplot where LT uses Nanomachines to mess with the biology of the Daughters of Liberty is also ditched, not just because the Daughters never went to the Outside World, but also that he simply never tried to do this to the Alexandria Crew in this continuity.
    • As is the plot point where the Daughters collect parts of a key from the various STI facilities all over the world.
  • Alien Non-Interference Clause: This is actually enforced by the Neverland Convention, where it is named the Outside World Non-Interference Clause. Lampshaded by Masud, who guesses that he and the Alexandria Crew has already violated it just by being in the Outside World.
  • All for Nothing:
    • Downplayed. Phantasmverse!Yukari and Kyomu decides to counter LT's plot to capture Koishi and the Three Fairies (via having Pliskin Snake trick them into going to the Outside World) by creating fake doppelgangers of Koishi and the Three Fairies and make an unaware Snake send them out instead. However, it turned out to be a pointless endeavor by Phantasmverse!Yukari, Kyomu, and Snake, due to LT axing the plot in order to focus on fighting the Alexandria Crew.
    • Played straight with LT, who in his dying breath invokes this trope by name upon being told that the plan he has been carrying out in behalf of his late father and stepmother for a decade had been completely invalidated by Phantasmverse!Yukari's method within moments of her taking over the Fantasy Blitzkrieg Incident from FBverse!Yukari.
  • Alternate Continuity: While Mission One has still happened in this continuity, Operation Alexandria takes the events of Mission Two and Mission Three Off the Rails by having Phantasmverse!Yukari take over the matter from FBverse!Yukari and sending the Alexandria Crew to go get the Tome of Gensokyo instead of the Daughters of Liberty.
  • Anti-Hero: The Alexandria Crew save for Jack and Catori freely admits that they never even considered themselves to be heroes, even saying that they have no rights to call themselves heroes on the sole basis that they've killed people.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: LT gives one to the Alexandria Crew when they finally confront him.
    LT: "But tell me, what makes you think you're the heroes?"
  • Armor-Piercing Response: While all of the Crew have their own responses to LT's Armor-Piercing Question, only Masud's response can be truly considered an APR.
    Masud: "I am not the hero. Nor will I ever be as a hero. Heroes are nothing but idealistic fools who are too dumb to kill the villain, which always causes problems in the long term."
    Masud: "No one can be considered a hero the moment they murder someone. What can be considered a hero is a coward who refuses to kill and just send the villains to jail, including the supervillains? They are idealistic and ignorant of the truth of the world. However, me and my friends saw the world for what it is, full of many wonders and horrors. There are no such things as heroes, nor villains. The only way to save the day is to make the world a better place and do what needs to be done."
  • Ax-Crazy: Literally with Jack the Headless Horseman, who wields an axe as his Weapon of Choice and is quite gleeful to behead people.
  • Bathos: Unlike the original series, Operation Alexandria accepts that it's "High Fantasy magic versus Cyberpunk technologies" setting is rather silly, and milks the silliness for all its worth, even if the Outside World's forces and the STI are still exactly the same.
  • Big Badass Battle Sequence:
    • The Alexandria Crew vs all of the HMF. Bonus point in that it's the only fight in Operation Alexandria that is actually challenging for the Alexandria Crew, with the Battle-Carriers outright no-selling some of the Crew's attacks.
    • Being the Final Boss of the story, LT manages to put up more fight against the Alexandria Crew than everyone and everything before him combined.
  • Bloodier and Gorier: Operation Alexandria did not shy away from having the Alexandria Crew brutally dismembering the Outside World's forces in all sorts of gory manners.
  • Bloody Hilarious: It did not shy away from making some of those deaths really hilarious as well.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: "Do you want to turn me, a pacifist, into a killer?" Said by LT in Mission One. Quoted word-for-word by Reimu in Operation Alexandria, despite FBverse!Reimu never having heard it beforehand. It turns out that FBverse!Reimu is actually related to LT.
  • Cannon Fodder: Masud's Mummies were meant to be this, but the trope is downplayed as they suffered very few casualties.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: A cross-continuity example: Pliskin Snake, who seemed to be just a bystander that involuntarily kicked off the plot of Mission Three, turns out to have been an STI operative all along, and he deliberately tricked Koishi and the Three Fairies to go to the Outside World just so the STI can come and capture them.
  • Compressed Adaptation: Operation Alexandria fuses Mission Two and Mission Three together, resulting in the Command And Conquer Protocol getting initiated much sooner.
  • Curbstomp Battle:
    • The Alexandria Crew dish out one after another against the FBverse. All the fights up until the Crew's arrival in Necopolis are over so quickly that they may as well be single-stroke battles.
    • The Lunar Kingdom (the FBverse's version of the Lunar Capital) got subject to one by Kyomu and her army of void familiars and shadow creatures, with assistance from the Phantasmverse counterpart of Ran and Chen.
  • Death by Adaptation: Everyone and everything that fought the Daughters of Liberty in the original series wound up getting brutally slaughtered by the Alexandria Crew here. Not even LT himself could avoid this fate.
  • Death by Irony: A Nazi officer dies by getting gassed. You do the math.
  • Denser and Wackier: Operation Alexandria has so much more humor than the original series.
  • Disappointed by the Motive: Everything that LT, his father, and his stepmother (FBverse!Reimu's mother) has planned against Gensokyo for decades turns out to be in response to FBverse!Yukari manipulating Outside World history entirely For the Evulz and with no clear endgoal either. Phantasmverse!Yukari became disgusted to find out that all the bloodshed that have been caused in the course of the story was entirely due to her counterpart being an utter buffoon.
  • Disappointed in You: FBverse!Yuyuko says this to her Yukari for starting the whole plot in the first place.
  • Famous Last Words: "This... *cough* this is... *raises middle finger* FUCKING... BULLshiiiiiiiiiiiiiit..." -LT's dying words upon learning that everything he, his father, and his stepmother has planned for decades has been completely pointless.
  • Fate Worse than Death: For her utterly idiotic handling of everything, FBverse!Yukari is put in one by Phantasmverse!Yukari in the form of an eternal hibernation where she will be plagued by nightmares every second.
  • Fictional Geneva Conventions: The Neverland Convention is one that prevents Magical Land like Gensokyo from crossing the line.
  • Five-Man Band: Two of them, in fact.
    • Although kind of subverted despite Omega E calling the trope by name and even directly mentioning TV Tropes, as nobody in the Alexandria Crew qualifies as The Smart Guy or The Chick, and everyone in the Science Crew are The Smart Guys by default.
  • Flipping the Bird: LT does this again. This time as part of his Famous Last Words.
  • Foreshadowing: FBverse!Yumemi became melancholic when Phantasmverse!Yumemi asked her about the nanomachines in her body, and whether she wants them to be replaced, while wondering what it'd be like without them. Considering that nothing of the sort occurred in the original series, one has to wonder if this came from the remnants of a plot twist that never came to be in the original series. It is later discovered that it is because FBverse!Yumemi was an STI mole.
  • Godzilla Threshold:
    • Crossed this much sooner than the original series did due to being a Compressed Adaptation, with every nation in the world considering using whatever firepower available to kill the Alexandria Crew, civilian casualties be damned.
    • Once Lt has been killed off and the Fantasy Blitzkrieg Incident resolved for good, Phantasmverse!Yukari and her fellow sages do everything they can to make sure it can never happen again. They brought down FBverse!Yukari's regime and her utterly nonsensical system, erase LT and his entire family from the memories of the entire Outside World, revert Outside World tech to pre-STI levels (which is implied to have brought them back to pre-atomic bomb levels of tech), and then erase the Outside World humans' anti-magic ambitions from their cognition for good measure. On top of having Kyomu checking in regularly to make sure a new ambition doesn't rise to replace the old one and start the whole mess all over again.
  • Head-in-the-Sand Management: FBverse!Remilia in the story's epilogue accuses the Council of Sanctuaries and the other Sanctuaries of "being obsessed with the Neverland Conventions to the point of burying their heads in the sand even as an outside foe is getting ready to destroy them", and then points out (to the Phantasmverse characters) that it has happened before. Catori even compares the Council of Sanctuaries to the The New Republic.
  • Headless Horseman: Jack the Headless Horseman.
  • Healing Factor: Catori's regeneration is so powerful that she can shrug off having her head blown off several times.
  • Heel–Face Turn: FBverse!Yumemi defects from the STI once the nanomachines in her body are removed note .
  • The Hero: Deconstructed. See Armor-Piercing Response above.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Masud sums this up as the reason he is fighting against LT in order to save Gensokyo.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Catori is a Wendigo that enjoys eating humans.
  • Implacable Man: The entire Alexandria Crew is this to the FBverse. They are perfectly capable of no-selling even the most powerful attacks the Outside World could dish out, and what few damage they did receive are gone in almost an instant. Even Masud's mummies, which were meant to be Cannon Fodder, suffered very few casualties, and those casualties were easily replaced very swiftly.
  • Istanbul (Not Constantinople): Lampshaded.
    Jack: Why the fuck is Japan called Asahi when it's supposed to be called JAPAN! Seriously, would the other countries not be called Germany, Russia, or the United States?"
    FBverse!Yumemi: "Um, what's Japan, Germany, Russia, or the United States?"
    Jack: "ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! I was joking!"
  • Losing Your Head: Harrison, after getting beheaded by Jack, remains alive long enough to make a Badass Boast.
  • Mad Bomber: Aside from being a literal example of Ax-Crazy, Jack also uses pumpkin bombs a lot against the Outside World's forces.
  • Mini-Mecha: Phantasmverse!Nitori's Kappa Gunner.
  • The Mole: FBverse!Yumemi turns out to be one for the STI. Though she eventually turns against the STI and sides with the Alexandria Crew.
  • Mummy: Masud can use a spell to turn humans into Mummies who obey his commands. They are still able to use guns and possesses whatever knowledge they had prior to mummification.
  • Ninja Maid: The STI's Battle Maids.
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: This is why the Alexandria Crew and everyone from the Phantasmverse are utterly overpowered in comparison to the FBverse. They needed to be so overpowered because they regularly fought even more overpowered enemies in the form of SCPs and Old Gods. In other words, the Alexandria Crew were small potatoes in their home universe.
  • Off the Rails: The Alexandria Crew completely derails Mission Two and Mission Three just by showing up.
  • Off with His Head!: Jack's favorite method of killing Outside World forces.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted.
    • LT's real name is Jack Summers, and one member of the Alexandria Crew is named Jack. Although LT is never referred to as Jack.
    • Thanks to multiversal shenanigans, there are now two different versions of Yukari existing in this story. Although the story still tries to distinguish them by referring to Phantasmverse!Yukari as Sage Yukari, and FBverse!Yukari as Dictator Yukari.
    • Same goes for Yumemi. The story tried to distinguish between the two versions by referring to FBverse!Yumemi as "Older Yumemi"note , and Phantasmverse!Yumemi as "Younger Yumemi".
  • Outside-Context Problem: The Alexandria Crew simply didn't exist in the FBverse, so due to the Tome of Gensokyo having no records whatsoever of them, they wound up becoming this to the Outside World's forces.
  • Overused Running Gag: While the FBverse being subject to one zero-effort Curbstomp Battle after another by the Alexandria Crew is fun to look at (even Summers loved the curbstomps due to his hatred for the original series), Omega E eventually realized that they're making the fights incredibly predictable, and opted to make the fights against the Gunships, RAIDERS and Nation Leaders more challenging for the heroes.
  • Powered Armor: Phantasmverse!Rikako's "iron man" (all lower case) suit, later named the Lavender Praetor.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech:
    • Phantasmverse!Yukari gives one to FBverse!Yukari right in the first chapter, telling her off for being the one to have started the whole mess in the first place.
    Phantasmverse!Yukari: "First off, you made conflict with the Outside World for a stupid reason and not simply eliminating [LT and his crew]. Secondly, you stole all of the moon's secrets and gave it to Ian Fleming of all people for no reason. And thirdly, you tried to get Marisa to go to the Outside World to find her father. Lastly, you placed the Tome of Gensokyo on LT's escape vehicle and why did you do it exactly?"
    FBverse!Yukari: "Um, I placed it there because it was an accident?"
    Phantasmverse!Yukari: "No, you simply did it because you lacked foresight and your idiotic judgement is the reason as well! Not only that, but the Tome will provide LT and his allies with vital information on Gensokyo and you left it with him because of an "accident". No, it is ONLY because of your idiotic reasoning that led to you losing the Tome in the first place."
    • Later, Phantasmverse!Eiki gives each of the Superpowers of Gensokyo (including her FBverse self) one RYSS after another (except Byakuren who she notes is a great leader and only sucked because she is unwilling to use force even when it is needed).
  • Summon Bigger Fish:
    • The whole plot of Operation Alexandria began with Phantasmverse!Yukari sending the Alexandria Crew instead of the Daughters of Liberty after LT. The Alexandria Crew are so much more powerful than the DOL, to the point of curbstomping everything in their way without taking so much as a scratch.
    • The HMF throws everything they have at the Alexandria Crew off the east coast of Registan. This time, they put up enough of a fight that it took two whole chapters before the Crew manages to turn the tides.
  • Surprisingly Realistic Outcome:
    • FBverse!Chiyuri has been dead for 50 years, while FBverse!Yumemi is still alive due to some Applied Phlebotinum. When FBverse!Yumemi sees Phantasmverse!Chiyuri, she breaks down in tears due to being reminded of a close friend's death.
    • Mainyu manages to break in half LT's Zantankuto Sword using her ability to create vibrations and a Shout-Out to the Marvel Universe. LT retaliates by jamming the broken sword into her gut anyway, knocking her out of the battle. Turns out, a sword that is broken in half isn't a piece of scrap just yet, as it can be used as a still sharp dagger.
    • Although the Alexandria Crew had saved the Magical World from LT's planned extermination campaign against all things magical, it still doesn't change the fact that the Crew had technically violated the Outside World Non-Interference Clause which states that even showing up in the Outside World is considered a war crime, on top of breaking many other rules in the Neverland Conventions, and they were tried by the Council of Sanctuaries for it. Subverted, as the COS concludes that the alternative is so much worse that what the Crew did is considered an improvement, and they just let the Crew off with a simple warning.
  • Take That!
    Jack: "EVEN Twilight IS BETTER THAN THIS FUCKING SHIT!"
  • Taken for Granite: Medusa can do this. Hardly surprising, considering her name.
  • Teeth Flying: During the final battle, LT punches Medusa in the face hard enough to knock out a fang. Later in the same fight, LT himself spits out a loose tooth after getting decked by Phantasmverse!Yumemi.
  • Unperson: Once LT is Killed Off for Real, Phantasmverse!Yukari and her fellow sages does this to LT, the STI, and the entire Summers family, as well as reverting Outside World tech to pre-STI levels.
  • Wham Line
