Go To

Adam: I looked at Sarah, aka Stratogale. Stratogale... Gale-force winds... Galeforces. "Would Galeforces sound good?" I asked.
Kate: "Yeah, it does sound good," I said. "It does bring Stratogale to mind."
Sarah: I blushed, naturally. An entire team named after me? They shouldn't have. "Aww, thanks guys," I said. "But even if the team is named after me, I want this to be about all of us. And if Mr. Incredible is The Incredibles' leader, Splashdown should be The Galeforces' leader."
— Adam, Kate, and Sarah Squall, naming the new Super Family Team in town.

The Incredibles: Rise of the Galeforces is a fanfiction collab by Troper Geosternbergia, known on deviantArt as Shadow-Aspect, and fellow deviantArt compatriot georgemiser. explores the backstories and histories of a majority of the late Supers mentioned during the Incredibles movie.

Violet and Dash Parr, sibling Supers in training, receive a call from Aperture Science and Technology about an important project downtown. What they find is a discovery that will change their lives forever — a cloning facility housing the late Supers from the Golden Era. Narrowly escaping from the lab with their lives, they meet one of the clones, Sarah Squall a.k.a. Stratogale, and help her reunite with the rest of her family.

And so starts an adventure of a lifetime. Together, the Parrs and the Squalls, as mutual allies, go through all kinds of good-time heroic action involving ticklish situations, no-holds-barred ass-kicking, and new bonds of friendship.

This fanfic provides examples of:

  • Break the Cutie: Sarah early on in Episode 4, when she is separated from her family and is forced to watch the plot spiraling off a cliff due to Ludlow's "intervention." Ludlow also tries to invoke the trope on Violet by turning her into a Tyrannosaurus rex, and predictably he fails miserably.
    • Played straighter with the baby T. rexes, albeit with potentially deadly consequences. When the protagonists meet them, they have been separated from their parents and each other, and it's heavily implied that Ludlow flat-out abused them before they were rescued. Then he shoots their father in the face, right in front of them, when he comes to their defense. Deconstructed in that this fills the babies with so much pent-up rage and hatred for Ludlow that the moment they're finally freed, they promptly turn on him and tear him to pieces.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Ludlow's abusive behavior towards the tyrannosaurs is a near-literal case of this trope with deadly consequences.
  • Cape Snag: Discussed briefly in Chapter 3. Sarah and David both know that their original decision was a stupid idea, so they decide to exclude it in their new costume design.
  • Captain Ersatz:
  • The Chew Toy: Whenever Adam is in the vicinity of anything to do with dinosaurs, you know for sure that he'll get the worst of it.
  • Gone Horribly Right: The plan to clone the Supers, if you go by just the cloning part. If you think of it as "cloning Supers to use as weapons for Aperture's personal army," it's Gone Horribly Wrong.
  • Gorn: Ludlow is brutally ripped apart and Eaten Alive, onscreen, by the baby T.rexes in retaliation for the Eye Scream incident above, with blood and entrails spilling in all directions.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Few of the characters ever change their clothes. They just have one or two choices of civilian outfits, their Super outfits, and that's it.
  • Made of Iron: Almost EVERYTHING Adam goes through would have killed a grown man. Justified in that he has a Healing Factor as one of his powers.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: ANYONE who has sound manipulation as part of their abilities usually uses it to knock mooks away. Most Supers use the Make Me Wanna Shout variety, but Adam can also use the Gale-Force Sound version, sometimes combined with Wind from Beneath My Wings in his pterosaur form.
  • Making a Splash: David.
  • Malignant Plot Tumor: Ludlow, in an incredibly bad way. As if jumping into the plot two dozen chapters too late is bad enough, he makes it even worse by trying to kill everyone else participating. It's truly no wonder Violet develops issues with him in record time... violent issues...
  • Mama Bear and Papa Wolf: Both the Parr and Squall families are not going to let anyone hurt or take their kids away.
    • Ditto for Chomper and Mama. Also inverted, when their babies kill the remaining Big Bad for taking out Chomper's eye.
  • Mega Crossover: While this is an Incredibles fanfiction, other franchises to be featured include Portal, Megamind, Jurassic Park, Donkey Kong Country, and many more.
  • Mighty Roar: By none other than the king (and later, queen) of Hollywood roars, Tyrannosaurus rex. It's even used to cap off the epilogue after a partial Title Drop.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: Even Velociripper's gestures are overly dramatic - so much as flipping a light switch requires a very exaggerated flourish and a bit of elaboration of his course of action.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Velociraptors with guns. Ripper in particular is part human, raptor, and robot.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Save for the raptors the dinos aren't usually dangerous except hungry, territorial... or under Aperture's control. This is especially true of the T.rexes. Not one is portrayed in a villainous role and, heck, the 'rex parents featured in later episodes actually side with the heroes in gratitude for rescuing their offspring.
  • Noodle Incident: At the very beginning of the story, Dash narrates that he discovered his static-charge powers when he accidentally set the Parrs' lawn on fire.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Chapter 8: Adam gets this when he realizes that his old enemy has returned. "Hello, brother."
    • Bob, David, and Dash gets one in Chapter 13 when Dynacide shows up.
      Bob: My God... WHAT HAVE THEY DONE?!
    • At the start of Chapter 17, Violet has a nightmare in which she's in the scene in the first Jurassic Park movie when the Tyrannosaurus rex breaks out of its pen; she only has a moment to scream in terror when she sees the blood-red eyes staring straight at her. She gets another Oh, Crap! moment later in the same chapter when a real T. rex shows up.
    • There's a Mass "Oh, Crap!" moment in Chapter 19 and Chapter 24, both times after the heroes are reunited... just in time for the Spinosaurus to show up.
    • Another T-rex elicits this reaction from Violet, Helen, and Dash in Chapter 20, when they realize that it's smack in the middle of their campsite. From the same chapter, Vi gets a minor one when she discovers that Velociripper has found his way back to Isla Nublar.
    • Chapter 21: "It's a bird cage."
    • Chapter 22: "Carnotaurus! EVERYONE, RUN FOR THE HILLS!" And then the rest of the family get this when Violet is captured.
    • Chapter 23: Violet again gets this right before she gets injected with dinosaur serum... and mutated into a T. rex.
    • Chapter 28: Sarah and Vi upon meeting the baby Dilophosaurus, in a Shout-Out to Jurassic Park. Then again after Vi's fingers are melted to the bone by its acidic spit.
    • Chapter 29, when the dinosaur army bursts out of the HMS BP's cargo hold:
      David: "Oh FUCK! EVERYONE OFF THE BOAT!!!"
    • Chapter 30: Tony and Kari get this when the Spinosaurus attacks the house. From the same chapter, there's also a Mass "Oh, Crap!" from the adult Supers as Kate goes berserk.
    • Chapter 31: A bunch of mooks get this after messing with the wrong character, resulting in a Bring My Brown Pants moment. Helen puts it this way:
      But then I noticed that the gang leader wasn't looking at me. His gaze was, very, very slowly, turning upwards. That was when we heard a snort behind us. I noticed that I'd been backed into the rock in the middle of the clearing.
      It was not a rock.
    • Also from Chapter 31: Kari, when Velociripper breaks into her house. Then Terrordactyl when a bunch of Kronosaurus turn up in the middle of the harbor fight. Then Splashdown upon seeing Ludlow's army.
    • Chapter 34: Helen actually utters the trope name upon seeing GLaDOS. Everyone else is quick to join in the Mass "Oh, Crap!" moment until Neo reveals that he managed to turn the robot around. Then Sarah and Dash get this when the HMS Bubonic Plague blows up, and Adam when Ripper reveals himself to be Not Quite Dead. And Ripper himself only has enough time to let out a Big "NO!" when he is finally Killed Off for Real.
    • Chapter 35: First Sarah, then Adam let out an anguished Big Word Shout when they think that Violet has been killed off. And in the end, Ludlow lets out "a long, loud, high-pitched, piercing scream of complete and absolute terror" before and while he really is killed off. He apparently thinks they are angels about to take him off to the next life, until they reveal their teeth...
  • Opposite-Sex Clone: Adam is essentially this to Sarah. In a rare case, he's actually older by a year or two than his genetic sister.
