Rules: Avatar Contestants:

  • 1. To nominate an avatar, you simply explain their name, abilities, and weaponry. Afterwards, simply display a picture from your gallery.
  • 2. Anyone is fair game, but please refrain from trolling, God-modding, or Mary Sues.
  • 3. Only one Avatar per Troper is allowed to be in combat at a time.

Rules: Combat

  • 1. The tournament will be handled in brackets. When you nominate an Avatar, the next person who chooses to enter will be your opponent.
  • 2. 1v1 matches are the norm here, but 2v2 is possible if both sides agree to it.
  • 3. Each player also has a chance to nominate an arena for the combatants to fight in.
  • 4. The Winner is decided via knockout, forfeit, or fatality.
  • 5. You cannot make all your character's attacks direct hits, see what your opponent says.
  • 6. On the same side, your character cannot dodge all attacks that your opponent dishes out, and you won't be able to tank everything either.

    Matchups 1- 50 
Winner: Ness.

This roleplay contains examples of the folowing tropes:

  • Aborted Arc: The 2v2 fight between Lusamine and Sharlann against Yamato and Florida. When it became clear that there could be no winner, the fighters stopped posting.
  • Badass Normal: Enforced in several fights because one of these would stand no chance against more powerful foes.
  • Chekhov's Gun: When Yamato faced Sharlann directly, it seemed that she had an unbeatable trap for him... but Masakado's Barrier buff reflected the flame burst back at her.

  • Cool vs. Awesome: Several fights are very much this trope.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Defied in most fights, where Badass Normals go against other such characters and Game Breakers also fight each other.
  • David vs. Goliath: Two tanks verses a gigantic mecha. It's a draw.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The first battle, between Ness and Edward Elric, was very short, and finished before the next one even began.
  • Gradual Grinder: Yamato and Sharlann. This led to an Aborted Arc when they realized neither could ever win against the other.
  • Gratuitous German: The name of Krennic's Witch form, "Stern Von Todes" means "Star of Death", even though the author is fully aware of the fact that the correct spelling of the Death Star in German is "Todesstern". This is a deliberate Shout-Out to Oktavia Von Seckendorff, a knightly former Magical Girl turning into a Witch.

  • Informed Ability: Hashmal was said to be able to detach the pilot from it and the said pilot can act independently. However, it never happens as she was unwillingly attached into it and was blown up with the Mobile Armor altogether by a self destructive charge.
  • Humongous Mecha: Hashmal, a Mobile Armor named after an angel which is geared with a beam cannon, two gigantic claws, a bladed tail, And a prototype Ālaya-Vijñāna system housing a blue haired undead schoolgirl forcefully installed into it, the history of the said girl can date back to 300 years before Calamity War, she was found in a ruin formerly known as Mitakihara.
  • Magical Girl: Director Orson Krennic made a contract with a mysterious creature known as Kyubey in a split second before getting directly blasted by the Death Star Superlaser, repairing his body in the form of a Magical Girl. His wish is to will for Tarkin's death to regain his position, which is promptly granted by the Battle of Yavin and the destruction of Death Star. Just like any Magical Girl made a contract with Kyubey, Krennic turns into Stern Von Todes, The Planet Witch when he's stricken with grief.
  • Man in the Machine: The "pilot" of Hashmal, Miki Sayaka, had her body placed inside a Wetware CPU by Gjallarhorn scientists due to her potent magical power housed inside her body being sufficient enough to power up a Mobile Armor. Suffice to say, this only worsens her Sanity Slippage and heads straight into Fate Worse than Death territory.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: Judy against Reznov.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: When Vayne went all-out to hurt Yamato, he then realized that none of his attacks hit because he didn't really want to hurt anyone; he just wanted to protect Sulfur.
  • Tank Goodness: Several of the contestants are tank crews.
  • Taking You with Me: Deliberately invoked by Hashmal when she overcharges her beam cannon and rams toward the tanks. It is an elaborate form of suicide, as well as her wish of reuniting with her friend Kyoko Sakura.
  • Wave Motion Gun:
