General Fics

The Imperial Saber by Marutectz552

  • Recommended by: Mr Terrorist
  • Status: Dormant; last updated June 2020
  • Summary: "Soldiers we are: we the Imperial-Sabers do not flee, nor do we falter and nor do we fail to purge Evil from our sights. We are flesh and steel, so we are nothing but weapons of the Emperor. In the face of Evil we do not back down, ever." Tatsumi's beginnings were not of a free hero as he was made out to be, but as a soldier loyal to the Empire he lived in. Loyalty unto Death.
  • Comments: An alternative universe fanfic where Tatsumi is the leader of the Saber Legion, considered by many as the Token Good Teammate army of the Empire unlike most of their counterparts who are evil, corrupt or cruel. Tatsumi is very loyal to the Empire and the Emperor and wants to reform it back to it's good days before Honest and his corrupt cronies ruined the Empire. He also becomes the target of interest for both Esdeath and Night Raid, who each have their own plans for him.

Akame Ga Kiru: Alliance by Kenryo81

  • Recommended by: Mr Terrorist
  • Status: Dead (last updated December 2016)
  • Summary: An alternate tale of AGK. As a twist of events changes the course of history and brings early peace to the war torn Empire, those who once were enemies must now learn to adapt together to a new peace. But a new threat as old as the Empire itself has awakened, forcing Night Raid and the Jaegers to unite as allies if the Empire and all of mankind is to survive what is to come.
  • Comments: A fanfic that's funny, heartwarming and full of action. The fanfic begins when Najenda tells the Revolutionary Army that Esdeath is in love with Tatsumi which they use by offering Tatsumi to Esdeath if she and her army defect to their side. To everyone's surprise it works where Esdeath and her army launch a Coup D'etat at the capital, kill Prime Minister Honest and open peace talks with the Revolutionary Army! With the civil war over and the Empire reformed, Night Raid and the Jaegers join forces to become an Anti-Teigu Task Force to hunt down those loyal to Honest where both teams develop friendships, romance and forgiveness with each other. However, an ancient evil has awoken which threatens the Empire's new peace which both Night Raid and the Jaegers must work together to stop.

Alternate Worlds by HemingwayisBOSS

  • Recommended by: Mr Terrorist
  • Status: Dormant (last updated March 2017)
  • Summary: In a different world, Esdeath tracks down a member of Night Raid's local team to Tatsumi's village three days before he was supposed to leave. Trapped in the clutches of the Queen of Ice, will he ever be able to find his true destiny?
  • Comments: A Deconstruction fanfic about the relationship between Esdeath and Tatsumi, showing how much of an abusive relationship it is to have with a partner who's a Blood Knight Social Darwinist. Another unique plotpoint for the story is the fact Sayo and Ieyasu are still alive and have joined Night Raid and the reunion between Tatsumi, Sayo and Ieyasu. Moreso, Mine is killed off by Seryu shortly after meeting Tatsumi, letting Sayo inherit Pumpkin.
    • You think that's unique? How 'bout this: Tatsumi and Esdeath are related in this story, being either cousins or half-siblings!

Killing Your Dark Future by JTZ29

  • Recommended by: Mr Terrorist
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Pairings: Tatsumi/Harem
  • Summary: While on his journey to the capital, Tatsumi has a vision of what appears to be his future. Haunted by the images he sees, Tatsumi now aims to change his dark future. This fic will follow the canon plot with my own spin on the story, with some anime moments thrown in as well. Pairing will be Tatsumi x Harem with Lemons later in the story. Slightly stronger Tatsumi, but not OP.
  • Comments: A great fanfic to read with action and a Harem. Before his arrival to the capital, Tatsumi gets visions of the future where he witnesses the deaths of his Night Raid comrades including his own death from the anime. Unsure but aware something horrible will happen, Tatsumi vows to become stronger to prevent the visions from coming true. As a result of his actions, Sayo survives and Akame, Leone and Mine falls in love with him. Some chapters are NSFW as it features Tatsumi being intimate with his harem.

Akame Ga Kill: Kill the Second Chance by FireWolf674

  • Recommended by: KnightSpark
  • Recommended by: Mr Terrorist
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Pairings: Tatsumi/Harem, Wave/Kurome, Lubbock/Najenda
  • Summary: Tatsumi dies after defeating the first Teigu but a goddess has granted a second chance for Tatsumi to change his future and save his friends. Will Tatsumi end the war by changing his friends future or will he fail? Tatsumi X large harem. Tatsumi Stronger/Smarter. Heavy adult lemons.
  • Comments: Well, whatever I could say about this fic, it's probably already been said, but I'll do it anyway. Tatsumi dies, but meets a primodial being who gives him a chance to return to the past and Set Right What Once Went Wrong. With this, he trains and gets stronger, and receives an awesome Teigu for his troubles. As a result he manages to save Sayo, who later becomes part of his harem, along with Sheele. Even more surprising is that he saved Spear, who was revealed and promptly killed in one chapter/episode, and she became part of the harem as well. The author even showed a list of future harem mates for Tatsumi, and shows that Wave and Lubbock will be shipped with their love interests as well.

Crossover Fics

Assassin's Creed-Akame by Northwoods Dude

  • Recommended by: Hooded Cloak
  • Status: Dormant; last updated September 2018
  • Crossover with: Assassin's Creed
  • Summary: An AU were Tatsumi was instead born into and raised by the Assassin Brotherhood. At the series start he and several other Assassins are sent to the capital to rebuild the Brotherhood in the Capital after a Templar purge. Although he soon finds himself the Sole Survivor and Alone in the Capital. Because of this he is forced to rebuild the Brotherhood himself but he soon discovers that there are more assassins than just the Brotherhood in the city.
  • Comments: This is a great fic. The author is pretty new writing but you can really see the improvement in the writing style as the story progresses. I honestly think anyone who enjoys these series should read this story.

A Double Kills the Devil's Sins by Demon War God

  • Recommended by: Critica 7
  • Status: Active
  • Crossover with: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
  • Summary: Vinegar Doppio has died in Rome and now finds himself in a world full of corruption and depravity. But, this gives him a new purpose: to tear the Empire apart in the only way a gangster knows how. All in order to redeem himself of Diavolo's crimes and atrocities in this bizarre tale where confusion shall be the Empire's epitaph in the court of the new Crimson King.
  • Comments: This fic has yet to reach the point of being great, but it has potential. Doppio is competent but not to a worrying degree, and the new Passione is just getting off the ground, so there's potential for some actual stakes here. Besides, we need more Doppio fics.

How well does it match the trope?
