A currently one man project, the Horizons wiki is the current home of Horizons, a original Science Fiction series created by the YouTube user Hondo Moonrazor. The series details the adventures of the Crusaders, a group of Multiversel peace keeping mercenaries. The series as a whole is split into seven different smaller series (Genesis, Revolution, Frontier, Zion, Warfront, Shattered and Nexus), each focusing on a different Crusader and the small band of allies that served with them.

Horizons Wiki provides examples of the following Tropes:

  • Action Girl: First and foremost, Samantha, the first female Crusader. Several other examples as well.
  • Aerith and Bob: From Kanos and Ixil to Fredrick and Jason.
  • All There in the Manual: The entire premise of the Wiki.
  • Alternate Universe: These constitues a good majority of the Site.
  • The Atoner: A couple examples, but Kanos fits this the best.
  • Badass Family: Many Examples. In one AU all the main Crusaders are related in some way.
  • Badass Longcoat: The distinctive uniform for the Crusaders includes one.
  • Berserk Button: Threats towards his adopted daughter, Zannah, is a major one for Kanos.
  • Big Good: Kane, AKA The Watchmaker.
  • Big Bad: Each of the smaller "Series" have there own: DR. Xerxes for Genesis, Chang for Revolution, Ahab for Frontier, etc.
    • For the series overall, there is the Worst Nightmare and later Gip
    • Greater-Scope Villain: Archontis/The Nightmare Lord, an ancient Multiversel warlord and later demonic spirit. His long lasting influence is responsible for most of the problems and villains in the series.

  • The Chess Master: Ixil, par excellence
  • Continuity Porn / Negative Continuity: A bizare cross between both. If an article isn't refrencing a previous page every other paragraph, it's contridicting one at every turn. Somewhat justified by the sheer scope of the series
  • Crossover: A number of them off-screen, due to the reality jumping abilities of the main characters
    • Whether or not they are actually cannon is unknown.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Kanos and Jade are no less heroic, despite wearing a black version of the distinctive Crusader look
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Almost all the main characters, provided it isn't a Bitter Sweet Ending
  • Five-Man Band: Each specific era's main cast correlates pretty closely to this.
  • Framing Device: The site is presented as a book chronicling the history of the Horizon Multiverse
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: The main characters almost always start out as slaves or mercenaries, before becoming Multiversal heroes
  • Advertisement:
  • Guardian of the Multiverse: The Crusaders fit this pretty neatly, although they aren't nearly as powerful as most examples
  • Heel–Face Turn: Alastor most prominently
  • I Have Many Names: Practically everyone. The Author has a tendency of changing a character's name without going back and re-writing all the instances of their first name, leading to many cases of this.
  • Laser Blade: Phaseblade's, the Crusaders signature weapon.
  • Legacy Character: Many difrent men and women have held the title of Crusader
  • Multiversal Conqueror: Most of the major villains, but Archontis deserves special mention
  • Nice Hat: Part of every Crusader's wardrobe.
  • One-Man Army: Most of the main characters, and a fair amount of the villians and supporting cast as well.
  • Shared Universe: With several other "Adventure" series (Namely "Into the Void", found on the same site), all created by the author's siblings
  • Shout-Out: Among many other examples, the Author has taken to referring to his series as the "Horizons Legendarium", as a nod to J. R. R. Tolkien
  • The Alliance: The Crusaders (Also known as the Demarchy and the Court)
  • The Empire: several, although most prominently the War Droid Empire.
    • Subverted with the Imperial Collective, a peaceful force for good under the command of the Crusaders.
  • True Companions: Each Crusader and there allies.
