"When a world with two godly beings is split into a civil war that spills into four other worlds, warriors from all four worlds must unite to combat this threat."
—Summary of the prologue

What happens when you crossover pirates, ninja, wizards, and soul reapers against a common threat? Possibly the most massive multi-fandom crossover ever to hit fanfiction. Five Worlds War is a series of crossovers, currently having two installments, by ND2014 on Fan Fiction Dot Net. The story has the Lord of Order, Chitsujo, bring together the worlds of One Piece, Bleach, Fairy Tail, and Naruto (The Alliance) against pretty much every single enemy the protagonists have ever faced (The Conqueror's Coalition), all of whom have been gathered by the Lord of Chaos, Konton.

This is not your average crossover. Anything goes- anything can be destroyed, anyone can die, and none of the five worlds are coming out unscathed.

The saga has three installments currently, but will have a total of six by the time the author is done. Here is what is posted:

Five Worlds War contains examples of:

    open/close all folders 

    Tropes A - F 

  • Achey Scars: Yuka Suzuki has one as a result of his battle during the Mercurius Prison Break Arc.
  • Action Dad: Isshin Kurosaki, Shibi Aburame, Gildarts Clive, Monkey D. Dragon, Alzack Connell, Macao Conbolt, Choza Akimichi, Hiashi Hyuuga, Shikaku Nara, Inoichi Yamanaka, Yasopp.
  • Action Girl: Pick a girl, any girl. Odds are she is one.
  • Action Mom: Tsume Inuzuka, who is fighting in the Alliance in the Fifth Division with her son and daughter.
  • Adaptation Expansion: The story does expand on certain characters' backstories, such as Chelia Blendy, Yugito Nii, and Bacchus Groh.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Many battles in the war become this for certain characters. We'll probably see one for everyone before the war is over.
  • Advancing Wall of Doom: Crocodile creates a giant tidal wave of sand to bury the Allied Forces during one of the battles, but thankfully Jellal destroys it.
  • Affably Evil: As always, Kisame Hoshigaki is rather friendly with the Alliance fighters, even having a civil conversation with Luffy about not being a Fishman, after complimenting the Pirate on his entrance. Even when an OC is yelling for him to fight, Kisame argues that just because he has to kill someone doesn't mean he can't make conversation.
  • Agent Peacock: Yumichika Ayasegawa, Cavendish, Emporio Ivankov, and Charlotte Chuhlhourne.
  • A God Am I: Jose gains this attitude after becoming drunk on his own power in chapter 94 of the second installment, going on about how no one could comprehend his power and claiming he wanted to slay Chitsujo himself.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Although a large number of them weren't villains to begin with, there are members of the Coailtion who were indoctrinated and are being forced to fight via a form of mind control. It absolutely tears them up inside and the reader can't help but feel sorry for them.
    • Kabuto Yakushi is a prime example. Being an ex-villain revealed as of the events of Naruto Gaiden, he hates that he's being controlled just when he found his true identity, and that the control is making him act so cruel.
  • Alien Arts Are Appreciated: It's not exactly art, but Erza seems to really like Jiraiya's books.
  • All Deaths Final: Anyone who dies in this war. Konton has put a spell on the five worlds making it so those who usually can bring the dead back can no longer do so, like Orihime Inoue and Hachigen Ushoda.
  • All There in the Manual: The author will sometimes reveal which characters are in which division, which characters will be appearing, and which characters are officially dead in a Q&A section before it is revealed in-story.
  • Alternate Timeline: The four anime worlds, technically. As explained by Chitsujo, the minute he and his brother brought these worlds together, they knocked them of the canon track they were supposed to take. In the case of the Fairy Tail World, the Alvarez War never happened. In the case of the One Piece World, Sanji having to leave to marry Big Mom's daughter never happened because the incoming war forced the Emperor to hold off on the order.
  • An Arm and a Leg:
    • Lyon Vastia gets his arm blown off in the first installment by Deidara. Thankfully, Ichigo offers to take him back to the Bleach world so Orihime can fix it.
    • Eustass Kidd gets his good arm shriveled to a husk by Pakura's Scorch Style, but thankfully Hachigen Ushoda fixes it.
    • Nullpudding gets his arm cut off by Renji Abarai... then his head not long after.
    • Admiral Kizaru in the Second Battle of Hargeon. He loses an arm and is not happy about it.
    • In chapter 88 of the second installment, Gajeel manages to get both his arms blown off by Gladius. Despite this, he still manages to win his fight. That's determination for you.
    • Baki loses a hand, Cana Alberona gets her arm aged, and Rojuro Otoribashi loses an arm during the Battle of Mount Hakobe. Baki comments Hachigen is going to be busy.
    • Laxus Dreyar loses an arm during his fight with Na Na Na Najahkoop.
  • An Ice Person: Rukia Kuchiki, Toshiro Hitsugaya, Gray Fullbuster, Lyon Vastia, Haku, Eve Tearm (who uses snow).
  • Answer Cut: During his fight with Jirobo, Franky gets caught and then uses Coup de Fume (basically a fart in his face) to get him to let go and to use as a smokescreen. Jirobo, disgusted, asks what kind of moron uses a fart as an attack. The scene then cuts to Naruto and Kiba- Kiba starts glaring at the former and gets the sudden desire to beat the crap out of him.
  • Arc Villain: This usually depends on which Coalition middle management officer Konton assigns to oversee a territory (as well as overseeing battles that help the Coalition retain said territories):
    • Kabuto Yakushi for the Battle of Aster Mountains.
    • Diamante for the Battle of Worth Woodsea.
    • Kizaru for both the First and Second Battles of Hargeon.
    • Smoker and Konton's mind fragment for the Battle of the Red Willow.
    • Caesar Clown and Zeref for the Battle of Clover Town.
    • Yukio Hans Vorarlberna for the Mercurius Prison Break Arc.
    • Orochimaru for the Nirvana Discovery Arc and the Battle of Anemones Plain.
    • Jose Portla for the Battle of Kunugi Town.
    • For the Dance Powder Investigation Arc, it's several OCs named Toragashira, Toritsubasa, Gekkame, and Ryukaku, who are the chief tax collectors of Konton's kingdom.
    • Baraggan Louisenbairn and 2nd Kazekage Shamon for the Battle of Mount Hakobe.
    • The Battle of Magnolia's big bad is Royd Lloyd disguised as Yhwach.
    • The Battle of Nirvana is led once again by Orochimaru.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Bartholomew Kuma, who gives the mother of armor-piercing slaps to the protagonists.
  • Army of the Ages: The Coalition Army includes enemies (and allies) from the past that Lord Konton resurrected. The Alliance has a few as well.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever:
    • The giant Two-Tailed Cat Matatabi during the Battle of Red Willow.
    • Killer B could count whenever he goes Eight-Tails.
    • Makarov Dreyar with his Giant Magic, as Quilge Opie learns painfully.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Every single commander on both sides prove this again and again.
    • A very good example is the four Intelligence Commanders' fights during the Mercurius Prison Break.
  • Back from the Dead: Pretty much every important/semi-important character who has ever died in these anime.
  • Badass Army: Both the Alliance and the Coalition armies, given all the badass anime characters that are in them.
  • Badass Family: The Monkey Family, the Kurosaki Family, Inuzuka Clan, Hyuuga Clan... worlds of badass almost guarantee badass families.
  • Badass Grandpa: Silvers Rayleigh, Onoki, Makarov Dreyar, Don Chinjao- just to name a few.
    • Lao-G could also count, but he's dead, so who cares?
  • Badass Normal: While the characters from One Piece are far from the conventional definition of "normal", they are normal in the sense they don't have anything "special" about them like the other worlds- magic for wizards, chakra for ninjas, and spirit energy for the soul reapers. This actually comes in handy because it makes them almost impossible to detect and they can't be drained of their power. And they're strong anyway even without that "specialness," so, yeah, badass!
  • Bad Boss: Too many to name, and they're all in the Coalition. 'Nuff said.
  • Battle Discretion Shot: At the end of chapter 24 of the second installment, Cavendish is about to wail on Mangetsu Hozuki for "ruining" his beauty. The chapter ends with Mangetsu screaming in horror and we never see just what Cavendish does to him.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: Naruto vs the Konton mind fragment in Yugito's mind.
  • Bears Are Bad News: In the case one Bartholomew Kuma ("kuma" being Japanese for bear), then yes, definitely.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension:
    • Gajeel and Levy.
    • An argument can be made for Roronoa Zoro and Kagura Mikazuchi.
  • Benevolent Boss: Chitsujo to the max. He's one of the kindest, most reasonable characters in the fic.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Don't call Choji Akimichi fat.
    • Don't resurrect Kakashi Hatake's dead friends only to indoctrinate them into your army, then act like it's no big deal. Kizaru learns this one the hard way.
    • Don't hurt those Luffy calls friend, or make them cry.
    • Don't insult Jashin in front of Hidan.
    • Don't harm the ladies in front of Sanji.
    • Don't imply Anko Mitarashi is getting fat. Ever.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Mirajane Strauss, Hinata Hyuuga, Monkey D. Luffy... this is one of those lists that would be too long to finish.
  • Big Bad: Lord Konton, no contest. He is pursuing this war, killing hundreds of people and enslaving who knows how many others for the war effort, and created the Four Acts of Chaos just because he hates his brother. Even his Acts have "better" reasons for being evil than him, and that's saying something!
  • Big Badass Battle Sequence: The Fifth Division members taking on the Coalition Army in the Battle of the Anemone Plains, aiding their allies in the First Division.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: In addition to Konton, there are Four Acts of Chaos- Marshall D. Teach, Madara Uchiha, Zeref, and Yhwach.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Sabo to Luffy. Said instinct even manages to almost get him killed by Zeref in a manner eerily similar to Ace's death.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Naruto and the Fifth Division in chapter 77 of the second installment.
    • To a certain extent, Portgas D. Ace, Neji Hyuuga, Hashirama Senju, and Tobirama Senju are this during the Battle of Magnolia.
  • Big Eater: Luffy, as per usual. Love Aikawa even comments that this is a common trait in (manga) heroes.
  • Big Entrance: Averted multiple times by Dordoni Alessandro Del Socaccio. He tries to make his big entrance only to fall flat on his face.
  • Big Good: Lord Chitsujo, what with him being the Lord Order and the guy who created the Four Acts of Order.
  • Big "NO!": Someone usually gives one when the Allied Red Shirts get mercilessly killed by one of the canon bad guys.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Might Guy, Rock Lee, Yuka Suzuki.
  • Big "SHUT UP!": Sabo gives one to Zeref to get him to stop talking like he knows him or his brothers.
  • Bittersweet Ending: The Battle of Red Willow may have been won, but Yugito Nii is in a coma due to trying to resist being forced to transform into her full Tailed Beast form.
  • Black and Gray Morality: This actually comes up as an issue during the Battle of Red Willow. During his fight with Vice Admiral Smoker, Naruto is brought to the attention of the fact that many members of the Alliance are pirates- many of which who aren't like Luffy and have hurt people and done terrible things. There's also Monkey D. Dragon, whose revolution has caused just as much bloodshed and chaos as the Navy. This bothers Naruto greatly, to the point which after the battle he demands to speak with Dragon and Chitsujo about it. The conversation they end up having is very enlightening.
  • Black and White Morality: The Navy, and it annoys many of the protagonists to no end.
    • Gray Fullbuster has this when it comes to demons (demons are all evil and etc), and it is hinted that this may become a problem in the future.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Too many times to count.
  • Blood Knight: Kenpachi Zaraki, Ikkaku Madarame, Yumichika Ayasegawa, Grimmjow Jaegarjaquez, Nnoitra Gilga, Roronoa Zoro, Ryuuma, Kaku, Rob Lucci, Suigetsu Hozuki, Hidan, Mangetsu Hozuki, any of the other Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, Azuma, Abirama Redder... we could be here all day listing them off.
  • Blow You Away: Wendy Marvell, Ren Akatsuki, Temari, Chelia Blendy, Monkey D. Dragon, Erigor, Kensei Muguruma, Dordoni Alessandro Del Socacchio, Franky with his Coup de Vent, any of the ninjas' Wind Style Justus...
  • Boobs of Steel: Tsunade, Boa Hancock, Samui, Mirajane Strauss, Rangiku Matsumoto- again, we'd be here all day.
    • There's actually a debate in chapter 2 of the Fairy Tail Campaign in the Third Division on who's bust is the biggest.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Jose Portla at the end of the Battle of Kunugi Town, as he loses his ability to use magic forever.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Many of the members in either army. Kisuke Urahara, Kakashi Hatake, the entire Straw Hat crew, members of Doflamingo's crew... as said many times before, we'd be be here all day listing them.
    • Special mention goes out to Haredas, who manages to help save the day during the Dance Powder Investigation by being resourceful enough to finally develop a (much sought after) countermeasure against Dance Powder, despite having previously been portrayed as goofy, absent-minded, and often tardy/suspiciously absent.
  • Cain and Abel: Lord Chitsujo and Lord Konton.
  • Call-Back: So, so many. Here are a few notable examples:
    • Sakura Haruno at one point uses the Hidden Mole Jutsu to hide underground, only to pop out of the ground and punch Meninas Mcallon in the jaw. She mentally apologizes to Naruto for stealing his style, calling back to when he used the same technique against Neji Hyuuga during the Chunin Exams.
    • Sanji comments it's been while since he's fought zombies when Giselle Gewelle's show up, and asks if anyone has any salt. This is a callback to the Thriller Back Arc.
    • Elfman Strauss uses the exact same strategy he used against Bacchus during the Grand Magic Games against Dellinger, commenting about it after.
    • Gajeel wins his fight against a demonized Kuro by using his Iron Dragon Scales and said scales breaking Kuro's claws. He complains about having to use the same strategy Elfman used during the Grand Magic Games.
    • Towards the end Mercurius Prison Break Arc, Gremmy Thoumeux calls down a meteor towards Crocus. Gaara and A react by saying, "Not again." This calls back to the 4th Shinobi War when Madara did the same thing.
    • When Natsu hears Sasuke is fighting Franmalth, he immediately runs off to find a giant rock to beat him with. This is a callback to his last encounter with Franmalth.
    • Hinata Hyuuga when she declares she's not going to let anyone die in front of her again. This calls back to the 4th Shinobi War when her cousin Neji died in front of her.
    • When fighting Jose, Luffy lists all the people who ever pissed him off that Jose reminds him of- Crocodile, Arlong, Rob Lucci, Aokiji.
    • When Nemu attempts to seduce the guards at the Treasury, the author said it is a call back to an old Bleach omake where Rangiku tried to teach seduction techniques to the Soul Reaper Women's Association.
  • Call-Forward: In a conversation with Chitsujo, Mei Terumi comments that Chojuro has the potential to take her place as Mizukage one day. In the manga's final chapter, it is revealed that he ends up doing just that.
  • Calling Your Attacks: The story revolves around anime worlds, so it's a given.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Sanji, who despite all the gorgeous new women he's met from all the worlds, still has yet to garner any of their attention. In fact, most of them agree he's a pervert- except Neliel Tu Oderschvank, who doesn't know any better.
  • Casual Danger Dialogue:
    • Gildarts Clive flirting with Candice Catnipp during their fight, which only serves to enrage the woman.
    • Tayuya and Evergreen taking the time to both scold Bickslow for being sexist, only to realize what they're doing and jump away from each other.
    • Natsu asking Grimmjow's Fraccion if they cosplay when he sees their released forms, and saying Yllfordt's makes him want steak.
    • Shunsui Kyoraku teasing Orochimaru about wanting Ichigo's body (for his Living Corpse Reincarnation Jutsu, but Shusui makes it sound like the old snake wants him sexually).
    • Lisa Yadomaru pointing out all the accidental sexual innuendo Sasori keeps on saying, which annoys the latter greatly.
  • Catchphrase: Just to name a few:
    • "I'm all fired up!"- Natsu Drageel.
    • "Aye!"- Happy.
    • "MEN!"- Ichiya Vandalay Kotobuki.
    • "I'm gonna be king of the pirates!"- Monkey D. Luffy.
    • "SUPER!"- Franky.
    • "How careless!"- Gedatsu.
    • "Art... is an explosion!"- Deidara.
    • "Such a drag."- Shikamaru Nara.
  • Chaste Hero: Luffy, as per usual. Natsu as well.
  • Chekhov's Gun: During the Battle of Clover Town, Wapol manages to eat some of Gajeel Redfox's Iron Dragon Scales. This seems non-important at the time, but it comes back in the form of the Iron Maidens during the Second Battle of Hargeon, which were created using the scales fusing with other metal in Wapol's stomach.
  • Chew-Out Fake-Out: Kisuke and Shikaku at one point make a bet about whether the Hidden Mist Jutsu would be cleared during the Battle of Worth Woodsea. Beckman is appalled by the lack of professionalism, and Mavis- after giving some orders- turns to them sternly:
    Mavis: As for you two...
    Shikaku and Kisuke looked at her with slight nervousness. Beckman nodded in approval, thinking Mavis was going to discipline the two.
    Mavis: Who do you guys think you are, not letting me in on this bet of yours?!
    Beckman: Mavis!
  • Chick Magnet: Luffy still gets all the attention of women- and every other male in his division hates him for it.
    • He manage to get Samui to be in love with him the same way like Boa Hancock. Luffy even got HINATA (who loved Naruto for years) to develop feelings for him.
  • Child Soldiers: Some of the Alliance members are rather young to be fighting in the war, like Wendy Marvell, who's only 13 or 14 years old. Then there's Toshiro Hitsugaya and Yachiru Kusajishi, who- though they're both probably older than they look- are biologically still children.
    • Not to mention a large percentage of the ninja main characters we see are still teeangers.
  • Chirping Crickets: A tumbleweed goes by Ino Yamanaka in chapter 106 of the second installment after she makes a really bad joke.
  • Christmas Omake: The author does one where Ichigo is reading A Christmas Carol to his sisters, and various characters from the story fill in for the cast of the book. Kakuzu as Scrooge, Hidan as Jacob Marley, Mavis Vermillion as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Whitebeard as the Ghost of Christmas Present, and so on.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: Anyone with Observation Haki.
    • Cobra to an extent with his magical hearing.
  • Comically Missing the Point:
    • Naruto is briefly captured during the Battle of Red Willow by Riruka Dokugamine, who wants him and the other Acts for a reverse-harem. Instead of being angry about being captured, he loudly declares that "Naruto Uzumaki" doesn't need three other men to make a woman happy.
    • Fourth Raikage A, after being told the Coalition has a blacklist for individuals they find to be the worst threats (which is essentially a hit list), demands to know why he comes up at only number fourteen. Gaara tells him to prioritize.
    • When facing a Pacifista, Gildarts learns that to the Coalition, he is a low S-Class target. Much like A, Gildarts immediately demands to know who is higher than him.
    • When Yhwach is destroying the Fairy Tail guild hall during the Battle of Magnolia, Makarov gets angry. Why? Because last time the guild hall destroyed, it took two hours to fix- which is apparently a really long time for wizards.
  • Continuity Nod: There are nods to the source manga that play well with the story:
    • The Four Gods of Ishgar are currently protecting the western side of Fiore instead of helping in the east because though this war is happening, the Alvarez Empire is still a looming threat.
    • Laxus is still suffering from the Anti-Magic Particles.
  • Cool Sword: The soul reapers' zanpakuto, Kagura Mikazuchi's blade Archenemy, the blades of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, Zoro's swords, etc...
  • Corner of Woe: Kisuke Urahara enters one whenever someone mistakes him for being homeless when in actuality he's an important member of the Intelligence Division.
  • Covert Pervert:
    • Erza Scarlet, who refuses to admit she is perverted. Especially when she gets her hands on one of Jiraiya's books...
    • Ichigo, who claims to be a man who doesn't give in to temptation. But given his reaction to Erza's rather eye-catching armors...
  • Crapsaccharine World: The world of One Piece. While it produces people like the Straw Hat Pirates, many of the characters from the other worlds are disturbed by the sheer amount of corruption that is there.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: This sums up Natsu, Luffy, and Naruto in a nutshell. Everyone agrees they're not the sharpest tools in the shed, but all have incredibly power. Ichigo avoids this due to being the smartest of the Acts.
  • Cry Cute: Mavis Vermillion when her predictions turn out to be wrong. Shikaku and Kisuke both panic and one tells the other to comfort her.
  • Culture Chop Suey: The One Piece and Fairy Tail Worlds.
    • In chapter 84 of the second installment, the Second Division arrive at a Japanese-themed town called Kunugi Town. While Hibiki Lates describes the town as "traditional-looking", Kisuke notes that it looks Japanese and briefly wonders what they would call it in Fiore.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Happens often between higher-ups and the grunts, but here are a few more specific examples:
    • Naruto vs Riruka Dokugamine (if you want to call it that).
    • Benn Beckmann vs Luppi Antenor.
    • Mavis Vermillion vs Captain Kuro.
    • Luffy gives one to Jackal during the Battle of Kunugi Town for making Flare cry and bragging about destroying her village.
    • Makarov Dreyar vs Quilge Opie.
  • Cute Bruiser: Yachiru Kusajishi, Hiyori Sarugaki, Meninas Mcallon, Sakura Haruno...
  • Damsel in Distress: Flare Corona becomes one when the members of Raven Tail gang up on her, and is saved by Renji Abarai, who refers to her as one and calls himself "the knight."
  • Dark and Troubled Past: The cast is made up almost entirely of anime characters. Throw a stick, chances are you'll hit someone who has one.
    • The author gives Ms. Valentines one in chapter 102 of the second installment. See Laughing Mad below.
  • Dead to Begin With: The soul reapers, who are technically dead spirits. This actually comes in handy during the Battle of the Aster Mountains.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: This now applies to most of Edolas Fairy Tail.
  • Death by Adaptation: One of the major factors of this fic- anyone can die. Victims so far (on the side of good, anyway) include Ren Akatsuki, Atsui, the majority of Edolas' Fairy Tail, Urouge, and Yumichika Ayasegawa.
  • Declaration of Protection: Hinata Hyuuga does this for Luffy when Jackal tries to finish him off, declaring she's not going to let anyone die in front of her ever again, and that she will protect him.
  • Destructive Saviour: The Alliance so far have had to destroy a lot of the cities occupied by the Coalition. They reason that buildings are rebuildable- human lives are not.
  • Disappointed by the Motive: Naruto (to the point of pushing his Berserk Button) when he asks Konton's mind fragment what his reasoning is for starting this war. The reasoning? He simply hates his brother.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Gaara, Akatsuchi, Kurotsuchi, Monsieur Sol, Jura Neekis, Max Alors, Crocodile, any ninja with Earth Style Jutsu...
  • Distracted by the Sexy:
    • Naruto multiple times when Erza Scarlet breaks out some of her more revealing armors.
    • Ichigo actually points out to Erza that her armors are distracting and inappropriate, though this is because he doesn't want to admit he is distracted.
    • Sanji. That is all.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: Gray Fullbuster has been given one. Lord Chitsujo sealed away his Devil-Slaying Magic, claiming he's not ready to wield it properly with the darkness he holds within him.
  • Dr. Jerk: Kureha and Porlyusica.
  • Dynamic Entry: Might Guy and Rock Lee pull a Double Dynamic Entry against Kuma during the Battle of Anemone Plains.
  • Eating the Enemy:
    • Fukuro of Trinity Raven does this to Suigetsu Hozuki. Luckily, Jugo makes him throw him back up.
    • Liltotto Lamperd, also known as Sternritter "G" the Glutton, does this to several Alliance grunts.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The Iron Maidens during the Second Battle of Hargeon.
  • Elemental Powers: This applies to many of the wizards, ninjas, and some of the pirates in the story.
  • Elemental Shapeshifter: Juvia Lockser, Suigetsu Hozuki, Sabo, Monet, Crocodile, Caesar Clown, Mangetsu Hozuki, Admiral Kizaru, Fleet Admiral Sakazuki...
  • Elite Four: The Four Acts of Order, the Four Acts of Chaos, the Four Leaders of the Intelligence Division...
  • Elite Army: Both Chitsujo and Konton have one, but they don't put them on the battlefield because if one of them did, the other would answer in kind. (Think of it as the brothers being the USA and the USSR, and the elites being the nukes.)
  • Embarassing Nickname: Ichigo's bounty nickname is "Strawberry Reaper".
  • Endurance Duel: Elfman Strauss pulls this against Dellinger the same way he did with Bacchus Groh during the Grand Magic Games.
  • Energy Absorption:
    • Quincies can do it with reshi, magic energy, and chakra.
    • Aria's Metsu Spell.
    • The Samehada blade can do this as well.
    • Jose Portla gains this ability after eating the Charge Charge Fruit.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • Deidara does not stop Chelia from treating Lyon after he blows the latter's arm off, claiming there is no reason for him to.
    • Senor Pink notes using Giselle Gewelle's zombies is dishonorable, and mentally threatens that she'd better not touch his family.
    • Smoker (while not evil is with the Coalition) specifically ordered Yugito Nii not to enter her full Tailed Beast form because he knew she could cause just as much damage to his own men as she could to the Alliance.
    • Grimmjow told his Fraccion that he didn't care if they died themselves, but they were not to kill each other. Otherwise, why be in a group?
  • Evil Is Deathly Cold: Konton's strongest subordinate, Uragiri, uses Black Ice, and loves to freeze good-looking women in it as a collection of statues.
  • Evil Weapon: Nirvana, the Iron Maidens, and Lumen Histoire (which is in Coalition hands).
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Orochimaru summons Fire Snakes during his fight with Shunsui and Jellal. One guess as to what they do.
  • Explaining Your Power to the Enemy: It's an anime fic. It's happened, though some characters actively avoid it.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Gin Ichimaru. Sasuke expresses annoyance that he can't tell if the man's eyes are open or not.
  • Face Fault: The least likely of characters do this at the best times, such as Kurama and Sasuke, for the best reasons.
  • Faceless Goons: The Soldat, the grunts of the Coalition, disposable members of pirates crews, etc.
  • Fastball Special: Killer Bee and Sanji (Sanji being the ball in question) do this during their fight with Jerome Guizbatt.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Boa Sandersonia, Boa Marigold, Toshiro Hitsugaya, and Kensei Muguruma, who were absorbed into Franmalth. They would have been unable to die and their powers would have been used forever against their friends if Sasuke Uchiha hadn't freed them.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: The various members of the various divisions in the Alliance are becoming this.
    • Obito Uchiha and Nagato, both of whom have been revived by Konton, are becoming this, bonding through the fact they were both once evil and got beat up by Naruto.
  • Fiery Redhead: Renji Abarai, Erza Scarlet, Natsu Dragneel/Sakura Haruno/Yachiru Kusajishi if you count their pink hair, Flare Corona, Tayuya, Karui, Nami, Eustass Kidd.
  • Flashback: There a few, ranging from what certain characters were doing right before the start of the war to parts of certain characters' pasts.
  • Flash Step:
    • The soul reapers can naturally do this with Shunpo.
    • The Arrancars can do the same with Sonido.
    • The Fullbringers use a similar technique called Light Bringer.
    • The Quincys' ability to use Hirenkyaku.
    • Ninjas' Body Flicker Technique.
    • Kuma can do something like this by propelling himself with his Paw Paw powers.
    • CP-9's Shave technique.
    • Luffy's speed in Second Gear.
  • Follow the Chaos: Katsuyu says how to find Sakura in the Battle of Worth Woodsea by telling the ones looking for her to simply follow the path of wanton destruction.
  • Friendly Enemy: Luffy and Bazz-B actually get along very well and consider each other friends despite being on opposite sides and fighting to kill each other.
  • From Bad to Worse: The First Battle of Hargeon, without a doubt.

    Tropes G - L 

  • Gentle Giant: Yasutora "Chad" Sado, Sajin Komamura, Hachigen Ushoda, Elfman Strauss, Gildarts Clive, Makarov Dreyar (when he's not pissed off), Jugo (when not in ax-crazy mode), Choji Akimichi, Choza Akimichi, Franky, Brook...
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors: The Alliance wears blue and the Coalition wears red.
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: Hana Inuzuka and Nanao Ise had to use this routine against Yukio Hans Vorarlberna during the Battle of Red Willow.
  • Good Is Not Nice: The case for quite a few members of the Alliance, the strongest cases being pirates like Eustass Kidd. They may be part of the Alliance, but they're still bloodthirsty criminals.
  • Go Out with a Smile:
    • Atsui does, knowing he was able to protect his sister.
    • Urouge does so, knowing he stuck to his faith until the end.
  • Green Thumb: Azuma, Zetsu, Yamato, Usopp.
  • Grew Beyond Their Programming: Nemu Kurotsuchi, to an extent, in chapter 100 of the second installment. She realizes that she now has a sense of self-preservation, which she was not "programmed" with (being an artificial being). She briefly wonders if she should ask her father about it, but her new sense of self-preservation tells her that is a very bad idea.
  • Guns vs. Swords: Soul reapers have swords, many of the Marines and pirates have guns (and swords, depending)... it's bound to happen.
  • Half The Girl She Used To Be: Momo Hinamori, thanks to Shamon's chakra strings. Miraculously, she didn't die.
  • Harmless Freezing: Mashiro Kuna gets frozen completely and Sasuke gets his leg frozen during the Second Battle of Hargeon, but both are almost perfectly okay after being freed.
  • Having a Blast: The Coalition Bomb Squad: Jackal, Deidara, Mr. 5, Bambietta Basterbine, Gladius, and Gari; also Azuma who could make explosions with his plants.
  • Heroic BSoD: Kagura Mikazuchi enters one after her blade Archenemy is destroyed.
    • Then Natsu when he learns of his true origins. Thankfully Luffy snaps him out of it.
  • Heroic Sacrifice:
    • Atsui makes one to save to his sister from Zeref's death magic.
    • Sabo almost makes one, but thankfully Chitsujo intervenes.
  • Hero-Worshipper: True to form, Bartolomeo begins to hero-worship all Four Acts of Order in addition to Luffy.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • The normally meek and unremarkable Shiho is more than just a bureaucrat/desk jockey/pencil pusher; when she chooses to apply herself, she's actually capable of being a master detective (comparable to the caliber of Holmes, Poirot, Marple, and Nancy Drew). This is clearly demonstrated by her decisive victory over Treasury Minister Vitai (the mole/traitor who was covertly assisting the Rakuen Tax Collectors) during their cat-and-mouse game of accusations and counterarguments. See "I Never Said It Was Poison" for more details.
    • Also, during Shiho's described backstory, she also revealed herself to be a former master thief/infiltrator, mainly specializing in stealing desserts. In an attempt to steal Mito Uzumaki's legendary almond cookie recipe, Shiho got more than she bargained for: the entire Scroll of Sealing that Naruto had previously stolen. Shiho (being far more literate than Naruto) was traumatized from her reading of the various forbidden technique instructions (having also read on the atrocities and war crimes that resulted from those forbidden techniques), and after reflecting on how selfish her thieving ways were, she decided to atone by becoming the bookworm cryptographer we readers know and love today.
    • Baraggan Louisenbairn, of all people. He actually holds his Fraccion in deep regard. Thus when they are defeated, he's more angry about the blow to his pride than the defeat.
    • Wendy Marvell. While arguably one of the weaker dragon slayers, Chitsujo reveals that thanks to being the Sky Dragon Slayer she has the potential to be the strongest slayer- even stronger than Natsu (who is one of Chitsujo's Acts of Order).
  • Honorary True Companion: After a heart-to-heart with Naruto, Erza declares him to be an honorary member of Fairy Tail.
  • Honor Before Reason:
    • Grimmjow Jaegarjaquez sets some debris on fire so Natsu can eat it to regain strength, claiming he only wants to fight him at his best.
    • Though she isn't a good match for the fight, Kakashi allows Mirajane Strauss to join the task force being sent against Admiral Kizaru, understanding it's something she has to do.
    • The reason why Ikkaku Madarame doesn't use his Bankai against Kumadori during their fight. There are too many witnesses and he still wants to keep it a secret. He's also pissed that Meredy doesn't let him finish said fight even though he's injured.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: When Natsu begins his Sage training, he quickly realizes he has absolutely no idea how to harness the power.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl:
    • Kenpachi and Yachiru.
    • Gajeel and Levy.
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    • Hiyori Sarugaki yelling at her squadmates to act more stoic, when she herself is causing a ruckus.
    • Konton commenting on the arrogance of some people with absolutely no irony.
  • I Can Still Fight!:
    • Natsu when Kakashi interrupts his fight with Rob Lucci in the prologue. Kakashi manages to get him to back down though.
    • Ikkaku when Meredy cuts in on his fight with Kumadori. She actually has to knock him out to get him to stop.
    • Gajeel in the Battle of Kunugi Town after getting his arms blown off by Gladius. Despite protests from Patherlily, Levy Mcgarden, and Hiashi Hyuuga, he runs off to find a new opponent.
  • Idiot Hero: Luffy, Naruto, and Natsu. Ichigo avoids this because he's arguably the most intelligent of the Acts.
  • Ignored Enemy: Dordoni on several occasions.
  • Imagine Spot:
    • Hinata has one about teaching Naruto manners after Levy tells her it's women's job to teach men.
    • Riruka Dokugamine has one where she imagines making the Four Acts of Order her reverse harem.
    • Tenten has one where she imagines what would happen if Sugarboy met Guy and Lee. It promptly freaks her out.
    • Bartolomeo will often imagine himself being encouraged by or invited to join the Four Acts of Order.
    • Isshin Kurosaki, after vowing not to die in this battle, has one of his daughters telling him what a deadbeat he is for leaving them in the hands of his delinquent son.
    • Chelia Blendy has a romantic one of Lyon encouraging her.
  • I'm Too Young to Die!: Chelia Blendy shouts this when she's caught in Kidomaru's web and he summons a giant spider to eat her and Mashiro Kuna.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: Tsunade's reaction after being visited by Chitsujo's emissary in the prologue.
  • I Never Said It Was Poison: How the Dance Powder Investigation Team traps the mole. When they catch him with forged documents as evidence, he reasons that Zetsu could have replaced him or Konan could have manipulated the paper. It seems that he has a point... until Shiho points out Konan has not been confirmed to have been resurrected by or has even been seen with the Coalition. The mole wouldn't know Konan was alive again for sure unless he had dealt with the Coalition himself.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Mavis in chapter 22 of the second installment, after Kisuke has been mistaken for a hobo by Kagura:
    Mavis: She didn't mean that, Kisuke, you're not homeless. I'm sure you dress that horribly by choice.
    Kisuke gets even more depressed.
    Mavis: I'm sure you own a big, big mansion, that wouldn't make you homeless, right?
    Kisuke (sobbing): I own a run run-down shop!
  • Intangible Man:
    • Any of the logia devil fruit users. Sabo is an especially good example, because it pretty much guaranteed his win against Bambietta Basterbine.
    • Kakashi when using his Mangekyo Sharingan.
    • Juvia is a female example with her Water Body.
    • Suigetsu and Mangetsu Hozuki when they use their Water Bodies.
  • Insistent Terminology: Save Ichigo, the Four Acts of Order seem hell-bent on referring to Tsunade as "granny", much to her annoyance.
    • Toshiro Hitsugaya still insists on being called "Captain."
    • The Tontatta still insist on referring to Robin as "Robiland", and the same probably applies to the rest of the crew. Though, this insistent naming now extends to people they like- they've started calling Anko Mitarashi "Ankoland."
  • Intercontinuity Crossover: With One Piece, Bleach, Fairy Tail, and Naruto getting in on the action? Heck yes.
  • Just in Time: Lord Chitsujo pulls one off at the end of the Battle of Clover Town, much to the army's (and the readers') relief.
  • Just One Man: Grunts from the Coalition will say this when facing a prominent member of the Alliance (or vice-verse), only to get curbstomped.
  • Karma Houdini: Essentially, the Kakō technique allows higher-up members of the Coalition to become this. If they find themselves on the losing end of a fight, they basically summon themselves back to Coalition HQ to avoid Alliance punishment.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: Lord Chitsujo still loves his brother despite everything he's done. But he admits when the time comes, he will harden his heart and kill him.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: The higher-ups of the Coalition are good at knowing when to fight and when to cut and run. A specific example is Sasori choosing not to continue to fight at the end of the Battle of Kunugi Town.
  • Knuckle Cracking: Naruto, Luffy, and Natsu all have a habit of doing this.
    • At one point during their fight, Naruto does this in front of Smoker and Smoker immediately imagines Luffy standing there as opposed to the ninja.
  • Laughing Mad: Ms. Valentine is shaping out to be this in chapter 95 of the second installment.
  • Leave Him to Me: A prominent member of either army will say this to their underlings when faced with a powerful opponent.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Luffy runs off when nobody is looking during the Battle of Clover Town with the clear intention of entering the battle. He is soon joined by Gajeel Redfox, Pantherlily, and Rogue Cheney.
  • Left for Dead: Some characters after they're beaten, like Chojuro, Izumo Kamikuzi, and Kotetsu Hagane at different points. The aforementioned examples are okay though.
  • Let Me Tell You a Story: Naruto does this to Smoker in chapter 40 of the second installment (the story in question being about Nagato trying to create peace} when explaining exactly why the World Government's methods sucked.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Luffy and Dragon are the best example of this (in the intelligence/personality sense, anyway). Hiashi Hyuuga even comments that he still can't believe they are related.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: It combines the casts of four animes who are already known for having massive casts. It's amazing the author is able to manage them all.
  • Natsu, I Am Your Brother: The story takes place before the war with Alvarez Empire for the Fairy Tail characters, so Natsu still doesn't know Zeref is his big brother. He eventually learns the truth during the Tenrou Island arc.
  • Logical Weakness: One for Kakashi's Susanoo in chapter 33 of the second installment. When Kakashi puts it up against Kizaru, Kizaru is still able to bypass it. This is because Kizaru is made of light. Light has to be able to enter the Susanoo, or Kakashi would be blind.
  • Losing Your Head:
    • Hidan gets decapitated by Izuru Kira. Of course, this being Hidan, it barely phases him.
    • Nullpudding gets his head cut off by Renji Abarai.
    • Fuguki Suikazan gets decapitated by Mangetsu Hozuki in the Mercurius prison.
    • Franmalth lost his head to Sasuke Uchiha.

    Tropes M - R 

  • Mad Artist: Sasori and Deidara.
  • Made of Iron: It is freaking ridiculous how much damage the characters can take sometimes. Then again, they are anime characters so it is to be expected.
    • For example, Momo Hinamori gets cut in half and is still alive.
  • Mad Scientist: Orochimaru, Caesar Clown, Szayelaporro Granz, Mayuri Kurotsuchi.
  • Mage Marksman:
    • The Quincies with their reshi bows.
    • Alzack and Bisca Connell, who are both actual mages and marksmen.
  • Magical Eye: Sharingan, Byakugan, Rinnegan, Bickslow's Figure Eyes, Evergreen's Stone Eyes.
  • Magnetic Hero: A quality Naruto, Ichigo, Natsu, and Luffy all share as the Four Acts of Order.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: Gajeel in chapters 88 and 89. He demands to be allowed to keep fighting despite the fact he's missing BOTH HIS ARMS, saying it doesn't matter.
  • Making a Splash: Juvia Lockser, Suigetsu Hozuki, Mangetsu Hozuki, certain Fishmen, any users of Water Style Jutsu...
  • Man-Eating Plant: To a degree, Black/White Zetsu.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Naruto and Mei Terumi in the prologue.
  • Mask Power: The Vizards.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Lord Chitsujo and Lord Konton. Their names literally mean "Order" and "Chaos."
    • This also applies to most members of Konton's elite Nine Dark Circles, with each being a rough translation of their title.
      • Midarana (2nd Circle of Lust) means "Lewd".
      • Ōkui (3rd Circle of Gluttony) means "Gluttony".
      • Yoku (4th Circle of Greed) means "Greed/Want".
      • Gekidō (5th Circle of Wrath) means "Loose the temper".
      • Itan (6th Circle of Heresy) means "Heresy".
      • Bōryoku (7th Circle of Violence) means "Violence".
      • Sagi (8th Circle of Fraud) means "Scam/fraud".
      • Uragiri (9th Circle of Treachery) means "Betrayal".
    • More disturbingly, Konton's Kingdom is named Rakuen, which translates to "Paradise".
    • The Mod Soul Squadron may have these. Jamba has the ability to morph matter, and one of the things he creates is juice. Mary has mirror powers, and there is a mirror game called Scary Mary.
  • Mind Wipe: Inoichi Yamanaka asks Lord Chitsujo if he can perform a forbidden technique to wipe every one of Ms. Valentines' memories in order to help her. Given what he found there, Chitsujo gives the okay provided Ms. Valentines wants it.
  • Monstrosity Equals Weakness: Jerome Guizbatt, after using his Vollständig, grows more monstrous, but loses his intelligence. He's still a threat, but it becomes marginally easier to fight him.
  • Mood Whiplash: Is there ever. The story can go from humorous to serious to humorous at the drop of a hat. Not that anyone minds.
    • For example, at the end of the Battle of Red Willow. It starts out as a happy victory, only for it to become dramatic when it's revealed what happened to Yugito Nii.
  • Mook Chivalry: It happens, such as two mooks in the Alliance insisting on coming to Yumichika's aid against Yomazu and Kawazu.
  • Mundane Utility: When shown the Byakugan, one of the most powerful kekkei genkai the Leaf has to offer, Luffy has Hinata use it to see how many fingers he has behind his back.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Mirajane when she comes to after the First Battle of Hargeon once it sinks in she had to leave Toshiro Hitsugaya and Kensei Muguruma behind.
  • Neck Lift: Mangetsu angrily does this to Kagura at the end of their fight.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Characters from the Fairy Tail and Naruto Worlds getting Haki, a character from the Fairy Tail world getting Sage Mode... it's only to going to get better from here.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Vice Admiral Dalmatian's use of Six Powers against Kakashi is what allows the latter to fully master Finger Pistol, since he was able to better copy it with Sharing.
    • Also, during the Dance Powder Investigation Arc, Toragashira's decision to frame Mattan Ginger inadvertently leads to Haredas finally being able to nullify Dance Powder.
  • Ninja Log: Used often by the ninja characters for the Replacement Jutsu.
    • Lampshaded by Makarov in chapter 92 of the second installment, who wonders where the log came from when Darui uses the jutsu. They're in the middle of a city with no trees or conveniently cut logs around.
    • Lampshaded again in chapter 120 of the second installment by Gin Ichimaru during his fight with Sasuke. He wonders where it came from.
  • Nobody Touches the Hair:
    • Yumichika and Cavendish completely lose it when Mangetsu ruins their hair with water.
    • Brook to an extent, considering his afro is the only thing that will allow Laboon to recognize him.
    • Toritsubasa is so protective of his hair that Anko almost burning it is enough to make him fight her.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Sherry Blendy gives one to Eve Tearm after he tells her her fiance Ren Akatsuki is dead. He doesn't try to stop her and it only ends when Kiba Inuzuka intervenes.
    • Shunsui let civilians do this to him in penance for some of the army having to kill their friends and family members as Giselle's zombies. Thankfully Gildarts and Kenpachi stepped in and stopped them from taking it too far.
  • No One Could Survive That!: Far, far too many to list, but one example is Ichigo taking a direct hit from Bartholomew Kuma's Ursus Shock, and another is Luffy getting blown up by Jackal's Explosion Curse.
  • Nonuniform Uniform: The author has stated that many of the uniforms worn by the Alliance members are simply blue versions of their usual outfits.
  • Nose Bleed: On multiple occasions by some of the more perverted characters.
  • No-Sell:
    • When Ino Yamanaka tries to use a chakra-infused punch on Satori. He absorbs the force with an Impact Dial and sends it back at her.
    • When Kakuzu tries to use Lightning Style Jutsu on Luffy. Goes about as well as expected.
    • Makarov when he tries to use Fairy Law- it simply vanishes. It is revealed that Jose Portla absorbed it with his new devil fruit abilities.
    • Cana when she tries to use Fairy Glitter against Baraggan. The latter just ages the magic into nothingness.
  • No Sense of Direction: Roronoa Zoro, Zaraki Kenpachi, and Yachiru Kusajishi. They even manage to all get lost together during the Battle of Worth Woodsea.
    • It is revealed during the Battle of Anemone Plains that Sakura has taken the extra measure of guiding Zoro around on a leash to make sure he doesn't wander off again.
  • Not Blood Siblings: Sabo and Luffy.
    • Naruto refers to Yugito Nii as his "jinchuriki sister."
    • Some characters have referred to the Four Acts of Order as "brothers."
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy:
    • Sasuke Uchiha, who flat-out says that he holds no interest in Boa Hancock's beauty. The only thing he desires is redemption.
    • Franmalth resists due to his filthy desires having nothing to do with her.
    • Actually, there are starting to be a number of characters immune to her beauty.
  • Not Quite Saved Enough: Naruto entered the mental plain, fought tooth and nail against a projection of Konton, and his comrades meanwhile were thrown left and right by a giant demon cat, and in the end Yugito Nii is left in a coma.
  • Number Two: The division commanders have a "proxy" to act in their place should they be indisposed.
    • 1st Division- Shusui Kyoraku is commander, and his proxy is Gildarts Clive.
    • 2nd Division- Sabo is commander, and his proxy is Marco the Phoenix.
    • 3rd Division- Kakashi Hatake is commander, and his proxy is Jushiro Ukitake.
    • 4th Division- Byakuya Kuchiki is commander, and his proxy is Shikamaru Nara.
    • 5th Division- Jellal Fernandez is commander, and his proxy is Shinji Hirako.
  • Offscreen Afterlife: The Styx, which is a realm where all the dead souls from the five worlds go. Chitsujo and Konton are able to fish around the Styx for dead souls they can revive for back up.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Natsu and Gray apparently had a great spar with Suigetsu and Jugo in chapter 23 of the second installment. The reader only gets to see the aftermath of it with the two wizards arguing about who got in whose way.
  • Omake: The author sometimes puts these at the end of chapters. They range from Kizaru trying to pronounce his new attack right, to the author and his beta tormenting the characters with the pecking order, to the Four Acts playing video games.
  • One-Winged Angel:
    • The Tailed Beast forms of the Jinchuriki.
    • The Quincys' Vollständig forms.
    • The Arrancars' Resurrección forms.
    • Take Over Magic from the Fairy Tail world.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: Gajeel's attitude towards the fact both his arms got blown off. He still wants to fight.
  • Only Sane Man:
    • Benn Beckman certainly feels that way, having to deal with Kisuke, Mavis, and Shikaku's insanity all day.
    • Ino and Nami both see themselves as this amongst their peers.
  • One-Man Army: Hiashi Hyuuga describes Luffy as such as the latter goes barreling through enemy after enemy. He wonders in deadpan if he and the others even need to be there.
  • One Steve Limit: Given the large cast, some names do overlap. One example is Sai from Naruto and Don Sai from One Piece. Another is Fukuro the CP-9 agent and Fukuro the Trinity Raven wizard.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Ichigo at the beginning of chapter 21 of the second installment. Chad finds him sitting down and meditating, which is serious because Ichigo is the "charge head-on and learn as you go" type.
  • Opponent Switch: Baki and Rojuro Otoribashi do this in the Battle of the Aster Mountains.
  • Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Kuma does this to Kenpachi, Might Guy, and Rock Lee with his Paw Paw powers in order to keep them from interfering with his fight with Ichigo.
  • Parental Abandonment: It is revealed in-story that this was the case for Yugito Nii, whose mother abandoned her because she no longer believed Yugito and Matatabi weren't one and the same.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Yachiru Kusajishi. When she flares her spiritual pressure during the fight with Kuma and the Pacifistas, Ichigo realizes just how powerful she is and reprimands himself for thinking she could be anything less- she's lieutenant of Squad 11 and Kenpachi wouldn't give her that position out of nepotism.
  • Playing with Fire: Momo Hinamori, Totomaru, Isshin Kurosaki, Bazz-B, Marco the Phoenix, Sabo, Sanji with his Diable Jambe, Luffy's Red Hawk, ninjas who can use Fire Style Jutsu, Natsu Dragneel, Flare Corona, Zancrow, Macao Conbolt, Romeo Conbolt.
  • Plot Armor: Some characters have it, especially the Four Acts, but given the author's "anyone can die" rule it might not last long.
  • Poisoned Weapons: Many of the ninja characters use these, such as Sasori and Shamon.
  • Prehensile Hair: Kumadori and Flare Corona.
  • Prison Episode: The Mercurius Prison Break Arc.
  • Public Execution: What the Coalition wants to do to the Four Acts of Order so they can demoralize the Alliance.
  • Psycho Electro: Candice Catnipp of the Sternritter. She loves frying people and showing off her power way too much to not be.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: The Bomb Squad during the Battle of Kunugi can count as this. The Second Division has to beat them before they can hit the main forces in the city.
  • Rain of Arrows: Boa Hancock has the Kuja Pirates do this to the Marines during the First Battle of Hargeon.
  • Really 700 Years Old:
    • The soul reapers, naturally. There's actually a very funny moment between Shinji Hirako and Lucy Heartfilia where the latter realizes just how old Shinji is and freaks out because he was flirting with her.
    • Zeref, who looks young but is well over 400 years old.
    • Any of the Dragon Slayers (except Laxus Dreyar and Cobra) given revelations in the actual manga.
    • Mavis Vermillion, while looking like a little girl is actually 24 years older than Makarov.
  • Red Shirt Army: The author, besides the canon characters, has many OCs (referred to by this trope name) to fill in the gaps in both armies and die if need be.
  • Rescue Romance: There might be one starting between Ino and Usopp, starting during the Battle of Mount Hakobe, but the author has admitted he doesn't know if it's permanent or not yet.
  • Retcon: Some chapters were written before certain pieces of information were released and events occurred in the mangas, so some scenes become false or redundant. The author's solution to this seems to be simply either ignoring what was said in the past and revealing the new information in-story, or making it so the story happens for certain character groups before new arcs.

    Tropes S - Z 

  • Sadistic Choice: Kizaru does this to Mirajane towards the end of the First Battle of Hargeon. He'll let her escape, but with only two of the four comrades with her seeing that is all she can carry in her injured state.
  • Sand In My Eyes: Gajeel pulls this excuse to deny the fact he's crying of joy and relief after Luffy defeats Jose.
  • Save the Villain: The protagonists sometimes do this for Coalition soldiers when they are in the path of one of their superiors' attacks. After all, they don't deserve to die just because their commanding officer is an asshole.
  • Screw Destiny: The attitude Hinata has seemed to have taken. She tells Renji there is no such thing as fate, only choice. (Not surprising, given how the idea destiny messed up her cousin.)
  • Seen It All: After hearing Erza Knightwalker is from another universe within the Fairy Tail universe, Shinji Hirako declares dully that at this point, nothing surprises him anymore.
  • Self-Duplication: Naruto's Shadow Clone Jutsu.
  • Shipper on Deck: Sabo for Renji and Flare, as it would appear.
  • Ship Tease: A few, such as Roronoa Zoro/Kagura Mikazuchi and Renji Abarai/Flare Corona.
    • Renji/Flare somewhat confirmed in chapter 95 of the second installment.
    • There has been recent teasing for Samui/Luffy.
    • Very surprising luffy/HINATA

    • Toby Horhorta's newest attack is called "Super Paralysis Claws: Super Special Awesome Mega Ultra Jellyfish".
    • Kisuke took a page out of Nedry's book when designing a computer virus.
    • Word of God states that Natsu and Grimmjow's rematch in the Second Battle of Hargeon is a shout out to Goku and Vegeta's first battle in Dragon Ball Z, right down to the winner of the fight telling his comrades not to kill the loser.
    • Gladius missed Gajeel's vital organs. Yes, all of them.
    • There's a reference to How the Grinch Stole Christmas! in chapter 95 of the second installment.
    • Chapter 101 of the second installment has an omake where in one scene where Ryuzaki (the author's cohort) theorizes what has happened to said author. One theory is the "crime scene" from Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.
    • When thinking of encouraging words for the mole's former assistant, Nemu tells her to believe in herself, and if she can't, to believe in Nemu who believes in her.
    • In a shout-out to Dragon Ball Z Abridged, Totomaru makes an incredibly lame pun about making his opponent "Indigo boom." When no says anything...
      Beat.
      Random Coalition Soldier: I get it!
    • In chapter 119, Suigetsu gets the dubious pleasure of working with an idiotic "Whitebeard Pirate" named Caboose.
    • If Gin couldn't break out of some rocks, then what kind of soul reaper captain would he be?
    • Chapter titles also contain shout outs:
      • Chapter 19 of the second installment is titled "The Walking Dead."
      • Chapter 51 of the second installment is titled "Thriller Bark Reprise". This is both a shout out to the One Piece arc of the same name, and the "reprise" part is a nod to the fact the island itself was named after the song "Thriller."
      • Chapter 70 of the second installment is titled "Attack on Admiral."
      • Chapter 82 of the second installment is titled "Death To Tyrants", a reference to the infamous quote John Wilkes Booth shouted after assassinating Lincoln.
      • Chapter 100 of the second installment is titled "Dance With the Devil." According to the author, it is a reference to two things: the first being the Breaking Benjamin song of the same name, and the second being the famous line said by the Joker in the 1989 Batman film.
      • Chapter 101 of the second installment is titled, "Ballroom Blitz," presumably after the rock song of the same name.

  • Sneeze Cut:
    • During his fight with Dellinger, Elfman Strauss mentions Bacchus (referring to him as a "drunk son of a bitch"), and the scene cuts to the latter sneezing briefly.
    • When Sakura points that like the other Acts of Order Ichigo doesn't think too much, Ichigo tells her- barring "that ramen-loving fishcake"- not to compare him to Natsu and Luffy. He's their friend but they're not the brightest bulbs in the drawer. The scene cuts briefly to Natsu and Luffy sneezing.
    • During Erza's fight with Tashigi. When Erza says Zoro bought his swords with his own money, it cuts to Nami sneezing.
  • Social Darwinist: The attitude of many of the Arrancars.
  • Sorry That I'm Dying:
    • Ren Akatsuki does this, mentally apologizing to his friends and fiance for dying.
    • Natsu does this out loud to Jugo and Suigetsu, who find him bleeding out, and they are saddened because they know the message isn't for them. Luckily, they are able to heal him before he dies.
    • Hiashi does this when he thinks he's about to die, apologizing to his daughters and clan. He survives though.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In the sense that many characters that have previously died have been brought back to life for the war effort on both sides.
    • Jushiro Ukitake. In the manga he died from having Mimihagi torn from him, but in this story Chitsujo's healers saved him before he could. He's gotten so much better that his chronic illness is almost completely gone.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The author for some reason switches spelling Chelia Blendy's first name from "Chelia" to "Sherria."
    • In chapter 103 of the second installment, the author uses "Tilm" instead of "Tearm" for Eve's last name.
  • Straight for the Commander: Kakashi decides to do this with his Anti-Devil Fruit Unit against Kizaru during the Second Battle of Hargeon.
  • Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: Shamon tries this with Gaara at the end of Mt. Hakobe, so the Hidden Sand will have a leader to his liking, but Gaara sees through him and doesn't go through with it.

    • Observation Haki qualifies as well.
  • Superpower Lottery: Eustass Kidd and Monet both describe devil fruits as this to their opponents.
  • "Super Sentai" Stance: The Urahara Mod Soul Squadron parody this with their posing, which they take very seriously.
    • There is an omake in chapter 59 of the second installment where the Mod Soul Squadron, Team Shadowgear, and the Thunder Legion attend a school for fighting poses. Who runs it? None other then the kings of ridiculous fighting poses themselves, the Ginyu Force.
  • Super Toughness: It has been commented on regularly about how inhumanly tough the people from the One Piece world are, and how soul reapers can take a lot of damage before they die.
    • This applies to the Arrancars' Hierro.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Benn Beckman's attitude towards his fellow leaders in the Intelligence Division. While arguably the most intelligent people in their respective universes, Kisuke Urahara, Shikaku Nara, and Mavis Vermillion's quirks are just too much for the pirate.
  • Taught by Experience: Shiniji is able to avoid being blown up by Knightwalker's Explosion Spear on the grounds that he's not stupid enough to fall for the same trick twice. Bambietta did the exact same thing to him in the Bleach manga.

    • Uryu Ishida as well, to an extent.

    • Obito Uchiha and Nagato want to be this, but might have a hard time with it due to being indoctrinated into the Coalition.
  • The Bet: A huge one is made between Chitsujo and Zeref right before the Battle of Magnolia. If the Alliance takes the city on the first try, Zeref will reveal his location. If the Alliance fails to take Magnolia, then Chitsujo has to give himself up to the Coalition.
    • However, Chitsujo decides to turn the bet in his favor by resurrecting Ace, Neji, Hashirama, and Tobirama and placing them on the battlefield.
  • The Cavalry: Once again, the Fifth Division in chapter 77 of the second installment.
  • The Chosen Ones: The Four Acts of Order for their respective worlds- Naruto Uzumaki, Natsu Dragneel, Monkey D. Luffy, and Ichigo Kurosaki.
  • The Dreaded:
    • Bartholomew Kuma for those of the pirate world, undoubtedly.
    • Orochimaru for many Leaf ninja. It is implied that he became something of boogeyman for them in their youth due to all the horrible stories about him. When this is pointed out to him, he nonchalantly admits that those stories are most definitely true.
    • Minato Namikaze, to an extent. He was a force to be reckoned with back in the day, and a force to be feared. However, Chitsujo was unable to find his soul in the Styx. The Alliance prays that Konton didn't get to him first...
  • The Man Behind the Monsters: Literally with Hughes from Edolas, who controls dolls he calls the Monster Academy.

  • The Nicknamer: Yachiru Kusajishi, Flare Corona, and Luffy (who usually does it because he can't be bothered to remember people's names or can't pronounce them).
  • The Power of Friendship: IT'S EVERYWHERE.
  • There Are No Therapists: Averted. Lord Chitsujo resurrects Inoichi Yamanaka for the purpose of evaluating mental health of prisoners of war and even soldiers.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech:
    • Tsunade gives Kakashi one when she hears about how he tried to force Mirajane to leave him behind in order to save someone else, saying he put her in a terrible position and that he couldn't "get out" of his duties that easily.
    • Erza delivers one to Tashigi during the Battle of Red Willow, criticizing her for her arrogance and her reasoning for why Zoro doesn't deserve his swords.
    • Same arc, Smoker gives one to Naruto, saying he shouldn't criticize the Coalition for its evil when the Alliance has such unsavory characters in its ranks as well.
    • Luffy delivers an extremely satisfying one to Jose in chapter 94 of the second installment. The author even refers to this trope by name.
    • Byakuya gives Shamon an truly epic one during the Battle of Mount Hakobe.
  • The Rival: The author has stated each of the Four Acts will have a rival from each of the other anime worlds.

  • Transparent Closet: Soifon for Yoruichi Shihoin. When Kankuro teases her about it, saying he's sure she loves her "Lady Yoruichi" platonically, Soifon goes shikai and chases him around for half an hour. Luckily her anger makes her forget to use shunpo.
  • Trauma Button: Ace, after seeing Bazz-B create lava during their fight, admits to feeling a little triggered. Not surprising, considering how he died.
  • Use Your Head:
    • Luffy's Gum Gum Bell.
    • Gajeel during his fight with Gladius as he'd lost both his arms.
  • Vampiric Draining:
    • Quincys can absorb spirit energy, as well as the two other types introduced to them in the story.
    • One of Hughes' Monster Academy students is a vampire who can suck the magic/chakra/spirit energy out of his opponent.
    • Jose Portla can absorb energy (even life forces) now with his new Charge Charge Fruit powers, and if he drains them dry it can kill them.
  • Violence Is the Only Option: Monkey D. Dragon tells this to Naruto in regard to the World Government, saying that their corruption is so deeply rooted that diplomatic solutions are just no longer possible.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Zeref after he realizes that the heroes has survived his Death Magic.
  • War Arc: The entire freaking story.
  • Was Too Hard on Him: Several adult ninjas of the Leaf like Tsume and Inoichi feel this way about Naruto, having mistreated him in the past because of his jinchuriki status. They now try to make up for it by being there for him now.

    • Rojuro Otoribashi's shikai is a golden whip with a spiked tip.

  • World of Badass: And there are four of them involved.
  • World's Most Beautiful Woman: Boa Hancock, at least in her world.
  • Worth Living For: Luffy (just as Jinbei did for him years ago) asks Samui if she has anyone worth living for when she is depressed about Atsui's death, and she thinks of Omoi, Karui, and her other comrades.
  • Wrecked Weapon:
    • Kagura's blade Archenemy, which is destroyed in her battle with Mangetsu.
    • Tashigi's blade Shigure is broken by Erza.
  • Wrong Name Outburst: During a tense discussion about Kagura's training, Mifune shouts that she's not ready and calls her "Izumi." When asked who Izumi is, Mifune replies Izumi was the name of his daughter. Kagura is horrified by the implications.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: Soifon does this when her subdivision, tired and injured, are confronted by Orochimaru. She insists they leave while she holds him off, so one of their surviving members can get important information back to the Intelligence Division. The enemy tries to go after them, by Soifon continues to get in his way.
