General Fics

Heroes by The Four Crosses

  • Recommended by 55Revolver
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: A powerful figure has returned to Orario seeking Bell. What does this person want? What will happen to Bell and all those around him? How will the gods react, and, more importantly, what will they uncover upon their return?
  • Comments: An interesting and exiting take on the Danmachi universe by adding a second World's Strongest Man to the setting to serve as a mentor, and father figure for Bell, and powerful ally to the Hestia Familia. My only real complaint is that the Author can't seem to decide whether or not Freya can or should be redeemable or not. But if you can get past the obviously overpowered OC, and the attempts at grey and grey morality it's an entertaining read that has interesting character development for several of your favorite characters.

Crossover Fics

Heroic Myth by haruoki

  • Recommended by ThorIngerman
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Crossover with: Fate/Grand Order
  • Synopsis: In the distant past, before the Gods descended onto the lower world, Heroes made contracts with Spirits to fight the monsters born from the Dungeon. But with the descent of the Gods and the advent of the Falna, those Heroes and Spirits have passed onto legend. However, with the discovery of a certain object in the Dungeon, these legends will return to life once more.

Grand Dungeon Oratoria by Wernher von Braun

  • Crossover with: Fate/Grand Order
  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Some of the most famous stories are those that tell the stories of heroes of the past; people that managed to carve their own names through their deeds in the annals of history, immortalized long after their demise. In the present, once merely figures inside of records, the journey of a young boy shall begin their stories anew.

  • Comments: The author admitted that this story was inspired by Heroic Myth, just with different Servants summoned, but hopes the story stands on its own merits.

Is It Wrong For A Godslayer To Have A Harem Of Goddesses? by Paulzies

  • Crossover with Campione!
  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Kusanagi Godou just wanted to have the quiet, peaceful life he didn't manage to get in his past world. But who was he kidding? When there was a Dungeon full of monsters, beautiful goddesses, and animal-girls, there was no way that was going to happen. Still, the Gods here were way more friendly than the Gods he'd met in the past. Maybe just a little too friendly.

A Heroic Avenger by Nergal D

  • Crossover with Fate/Grand Order
  • Recommended by AftermathJack
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: The Weakest Servant in existence, nothing more than garbage be it a Holy Grail War or any sort of fight. Yet upon gaining a new Master after a hero of justice stopped his corruption and sent to another realm, things just might change. In a land full of Gods and mortals alongside his new Master, maybe Angra can do something with his life. Hero? Villain? Avenger? Only time will tell.

Rabbit of the Moon by Born of Prayers

  • Crossover with: Bloodborne
  • Recommended by Winterkari
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: In a different world, Bell Cranel died at the hands of the Minotaur on the Fifth Floor. The Moon Presence, searching for a new Hunter to bring the long night to an end, just so happened to stumble across his soul on the way to Heaven. Thus a contract was established.
  • Comments: Our favourite rabbit flits between the worlds of Danmachi and Bloodborne, progressing the stories of both at the same time. The contrast works well. Bell feels earnest and pure in Yharnam compared to others around him. In Orario… well, Visceral Attacks. Enough said.

Incarnation of Legends by ObsidianNoir

  • Crossover with Fate/Grand Order
  • Recommended by Reppuzan
  • Status: Ongoing:
  • 'Synopsis:'' The Far East. Rakia. Altena. Bell Cranel, humble boy from the mountains, had visited these and many other countries in the world, inhabited by incarnations of legends. Those with great fates are drawn to each other, those with lesser fates led by them, to the center of the world. Will he be swallowed by the gravity of Orario or will he make his mark, to reach the Throne at the peak?
  • Comments: Although the author takes some Broad Strokes with canon, the resulting story is original, thought-provoking, and all-around good fun. The butterflies of change are everywhere, and Bell's growth and lessons feel earned even before he sets foot in Orario after his little Road Trip Plot to get there.

How well does it match the trope?
