Fanfic / Zero vs Kira

Go To

"I am Kira, and I have come to answer the grievances of the people of Japan against the Britannian Empire. For seven years, Japan has been brutally oppressed to satisfy the greed, ambition, and imperialistic tendency of Britannia, but now I am putting an end to that oppression. The Britannian Empire must pull their forces out of Japan in 52 hours from now. If they do not, I will kill the Emperor and his children. And to demonstrate my power, I will take the lives of two of Britannia's agents of propaganda. They will die for spreading lies and misinformation for the sake of the occupation and to make it clear that even the Emperor is defenseless against my power."

Zero vs Kira by Crossover Maniac is a Code Geass and Death Note crossover where Light Yagami is teleported to the Code Geass world when a Britannian world-breaching experiment Goes Horribly Right. Furious that the Britannians tried to kill him and enslaved his country, Light introduces the power of Kira to the Code Geass world when he declares war on Britannia. Also seeing no immediate way of returning home, Light feels he may as well create the New World he envisions here. Meanwhile, Kira's activities have put a Spanner in the Works for Lelouch's plans and as Zero he intends to do everything in his power to bring Kira down...

Provides Examples Of:

  • Affably Evil: Light is apparently "the best roommate a guy could have!"
  • Batman Gambit: Light controlled some Britannian bullies to attack Tarou while on the train so he would be saved by and befriend Suzaku for the sake of The Plan.
  • Decadent Court: Like in Code Geass canon the Brittanian royal family. After killing the Emperor and his heirs Light has a hard time finding someone competent enough to serve as his puppet.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: Light. He seems to realize this when Tarou is enthusing about him to Suzaku, about how his roommate is a genius and awesome and manages to affect some modesty.
  • Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: Cecile upon realizing that the guy In the Hood she just got a glimpse of was Kira and that he is offering them protection in exchange for her and Lloyd's obedience.
  • Do Not Adjust Your Set: Light sends a message to the media informing everyone that if the Brittanian forces don't leave Japan Kira will kill the royal family. Lelouch realizes afterwards that since there was no chance of Brittania ever bowing to such a demand the message was actually meant for him and his Black Knights. Kira was letting them know when to strike-in other words Kira used them.
  • Due to the Dead: This trope gets invoked when both the Britannians and the Black Knights are LOOKING REALLY HARD (cutting up corpses) to find the cause of the mysterious heart attacks.
  • Faking the Dead: When Light kills the royal family he misses Lelouch and Nunnally because they are listed as dead.
  • Full-Circle Revolution: In chapter 6, Zero holds a press conference telling Kira that he has simply "substitute(d) the tyranny of the Britannian Empire with your own."
    • It does settle an years-old argument: Lelouch is morally superior to Light because he truly believes "Only those who are willing to be killed should be allowed to kill", while Light just kills whoever annoys him.
      • In addition, the Black Knights come to the conclusion that, ultimately, Kira's "justice" is draconian, does not allow the Japanese people to judge their own in a fair trial, and may even extend to death for the least serious of crimes. Even Kallen, who was originally a staunch supporter of Kira, changes her view when she realizes that her own mother, whose only crime was drug abuse, is at risk of being killed by Kira.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: when two Brittanian thugs attack him at once, Suzaku smashes them into each other.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Zero and the Black Knights, after Zero declares war on Kira, "Japan's liberator," the people begin to turn on them.
  • Magic A Is Magic A: Lelouch and C.C. are puzzled because they had attributed Kira's powers to Geass but they don't seem to be following the rules...
