The Digimon Epics Index

A Continuity Reboot RP of the RP of the same name, this RP is set in this universe's Digital World, called Eon, following the various Digimon of the Realmless, or Ronin, as they fight off the Metal Empire before they do the ever classic Take Over the World (that nobody believes the Metal Empire is doing).

The RP is ongoing as of June 18, 2016 and can be found here.

Tropes:

  • Action Girl: Gabrielle, Emmara, & Sura. Not to mention the fact that Gabrielle's a Blood Knight, while Sura's that, nuts, and hot blooded. Namine fits this better when she digivolves/fights.
  • Advertisement:
  • All There in the Manual: the backstories of the Realmless, which might lead one to think of possible Character Development arcs. The plot of the story, which basically spoils that the Metal Empire has indeed coded themselves out of the Realmpact.
  • Appropriated Appellation: Jasper thinks Imperious is a fear-inducing, respect gaining word, when it really just describes what most think of him: imperious.
  • The Atoner: Homer. He feels guilty that his home has caused so much suffering, and that he was once part of it. Now it's one of his main motivation.
  • Badass Boast: Goliath makes a rather epic one after defeating Bolas.
  • Badass Cape: Ajax, Titus, whose cape is blue instead of the usual red, & Jasper when he's in his main form, Blastmon. Kinda comes with the job of being awesome.
  • Beneath the Mask: Gabrielle, who is trying to unlearn being a peace loving priest and become a relentless war machine, and Namine, as a way to trick others, playfully or strategically, while under it, she's just playful and kind-hearted.
  • Advertisement:
  • The Berserker: Again, a few like to just fight head on with little regard for their safety. Surrak, who tore up a mountainside, and Goliath, who charged through an army to get to Arcades, being the most prominent examples.
  • Berserk Button: Well, sure, missing the dead is common, but getting angry and punching someone for a slight (and mostly not an) insult to them? I'm pretty sure this is Goliath's Berserk Button.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Sura. As nice as she is, cross the line, and you'll be sure to see that she's indeed hot blooded.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In this case, hero, as Ajax, a main character, appears just in time before Arcades finishes off Goliath.
  • Bilingual Bonus:
    • Homer and Sura's family name, Suga, is Cebuano for light.
    • Kuya, the word she refers Homer with besides his name, is the Cebuano word for big brother.
    • Advertisement:
    • Also, when Sura was facing off with a Gundramon, she says, "Unsa ni?", which basically means, "What's this?" then taunts it.
  • Blood Knight: Surrak, Gabrielle and Sura. Surrak in part thanks to being a Proud Warrior Race Guy and Hot-Blooded, and Gabrielle because she was raised to be a warrior. Sura is a less obvious example since she doesn't actively seek out a fight, despite being Hot-Blooded too.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Downplayed with Tor since he was supposed to be raised to be a good leader.
  • Bow and Sword, in Accord: Nika. In this case, crossbow and sword. Though she uses the former more than her sword.
  • Bright Is Not Good: Well, Emperor Rhuell, as a Shoutmon EX6, is freakin' bright gold, so yeah.
  • Broken Pedestal: Homer. TWICE. First with his father's colleague, Dr. Arvo, then next with his crush, Azareal the MetalTyrannomon.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Sura. She's practically nuts. She's had (emphasis on had) weird dreams of "other worlds" and she occasionally talks to herself as if her late husband is with her. Despite that, she (mostly) interacts normally and fights well.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Unfortunately, this has happened to some of the characters because of their players being unable to participate.
  • Combat Medic: Nika. Word of God says she's a capable medic.
  • Cowardly Lion: Nika. Despite her prowess, especially if she was in her Dynasmon form, she freezes up when danger's near. But she will try her hardest to help however she can. Pelly is also like this, as someone raised to delegate and not eradicate.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: A majority of the Realmless are this. They are rebels after all. Goliath, Ajax, Sura and Homer in particular.
  • Dark Is Evil: Arcades. His species even has the word in it. Darkdramon.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Vale. He's a freakin' crow and yet he's a courteous as a nice Englishman.
  • Defector from Decadence: Homer. His reason for leaving his homeland is seeing someone he had a crush on kill a good friend of his.
  • The Emperor: Rhuell Argentum. He's even called the Metal Emperor.
  • The Empire: The Metal Empire. Because they've coded themselves out of the Realmpact, they're secretly taking over the world, under the excuse that it's still under the Realmpact.
  • Evil Sounds Raspy: Arcades' normal voice is this, but he can change it accordingly.
  • Expy: Several of the Realms are based on the Guilds of Ravnica, the Shards of Alara, and the Clans of Tarkir from Magic: The Gathering. Specifically:
    • The Blue Coalition, an adaptation of official Digimon "Deep Savers" Field, take inspiration from the Simic Combine (as established in Return to Ravnica) where they focus on preserving nature.
    • Both the Dragon Hordes and Unbowed Clans take inspiration from the Gruul in their wild natures and.
      • The Dragon Hordes, representing official Digimon's "Dragon's Roar" Field, take additional inspiration from Jund and the Mardu Hordes from Mt G - the former associating with survival of the fittest-type predation and ruthlessness, and the latter consisting of a violent, warlike society.
      • The Unbowed Clans, representing Digimon's "Nature Spirits" Field, lean towards the shard of Naya and the Temur in their attitudes towards personal freedom and their wild, animalistic societies.
    • The Verdant Conclave, represented by Digimon's "Jungle Troopers" Field, is based on the Selesnya Conclave in their attitudes towards the world's spirit and soul.
      • Additonally, the insect members of the Conclave have some counterparts with the Golgari Swarm in their undertaking of some less-than-savory tasks such as food production and waste disposal/recycling.
    • The Unhallowed Syndicate, representing Digimon's "Nightmare Soldiers" Field is based on the Orzhov Syndicate with their involvement in business, trade, devious dealings, and pseudo-religious zeal.
      • the Blood Cult, a secret society within the Syndicate is inspired by the Cult of Rakdos and their love of violence for its own sake.
    • The Eternal Legion, representing Digimon's "Virus Busters" Field, is based on the Boros Legion and the shard of Bant as the noble, standing army that protects the Realms and enforces the Realmpact through strict codes of conduct and combat.
    • The Astral Order, representing Digimon's "Wind Guardians" Field, is based on the Azorius Senate and the monks of the Jeskai in the way they represent and almost-worship the law of the Realmpact.
    • The Metal Empire, representing the Digimon Field of the same name, find similarities with the Izzet League in their ingenuity and never-ending quest for knowledge and the shard of Esper in their cold hegemony and desire to create the perfect society.
    • It has yet to be seen whether House Dimir, the Sultai Brood, or the shard of Grixis will see representation.
  • Genius Bruiser: Homer. Because dragons in this world are mostly Proud Warrior Race Guys, he's rather smart and prefers using his intelligence but still has the ferocity and power the race has.Justified though, since he wasn't always a dragon and both his parents were smart.
  • Grumpy Old Man: To the point where even the first thing Word of God describes him is that one word: grumpy.
  • Hot-Blooded: A few characters suffer from this. Goliath and Surrak being the biggest offenders.
  • I Call It "Vera": Sawyer calls his bazooka Sussana.
  • The Ingenue: Lillina, thanks to the X-Antibody somehow stunting her mental growth.
  • Inspiration Nod: Sura and Homer. The two were adapted from the author's fan universe that's inspired by the Mega Man X and Zero universe. Their family name is Suga because this. It means light (as in, bright light and not weight light) in Cebuano, and in that universe (Sura was a robot), Homer's father made Sura's mind (while Dr. Arvo made Sura's body), in reference to Dr. Light from Mega Man making X, hence being called Dr. Suga. Although not a robot, for the most part, minus becoming rebels, Sura's friends and husband dying, and Homer getting a crush, their histories are mostly the same or parallel, a further nod to their inspiration.
  • Large Ham: Gabrielle. Well... most people don't exactly say stuff like "Soon, you shall discover what it means to go up against the Eternal Legion!" when they fight...
  • Lightning Bruiser: A majority of the Mega leveled Digimon are this. Surrak being a prominent example.
  • The Nicknamer: Sawyer to a T. He rarely, if ever, calls anyone by their real name. He doesn't even call himself by his first name. In his case though, since his name's close to The Unpronounceable, it makes sense.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Nika. In part to her fear for close combat.
  • Mythology Gag: Multiple nods to the original universe:
    • Adirael is a character his player intended to use in the third installment of the Civil War universe.
    • Shortly after meeting Imego, Goliath muses that he'd wager he'd met Imego in another life, if he believed in such things.
  • Noble Fugitive: Tor and Pelly, as the sons of the Lords of the two Boreal tribes, become this.
  • "No. Just... No" Reaction: Sura's reaction when Jasper thought she and her brother they were a romantic couple.
    Sura: "So, in short, no. Just..." she shuddered. "No."
  • Oh, Crap!: Pelly when he sees a Wargreymon group, known as the Balefire Squadron, come right their way. He even swears.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Surrak. Now if only he had a larger group of enemies to destroy.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Demo, seeing as he's a Mamemon. He's also the smallest Realmless.
  • The Pollyanna: Sura. Seriously, she was kidnapped at a week old, tortured for the first three years of her life, nearly dying THRICE, her adoptive father dies, then when she was older her husband and friends get killed underestimating rebels, which was the second time she nearly died and then she finds out an obedience program subject she was friends with was killed by a Meta Empire colleague. Despite ALL that, she's still as cheerful as she was when she met Homer.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Surrak. The Dragon Hordes are raised to find glory and thrill in battle.
  • The Quiet One: Ulysses. Ever since the first gathering of Realmless were killed, he's reverted to this.
  • Rag Tag Bunch Of Misfits: Let's see, we have a lion leader who was the son of a great tribes from the Unbowed Clans, two princes, two defectors, a Dragon Knight and a Garabagemon. And there's still more than that,
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Jaeger is the blue to Surrak's red. Homer is that to Sura too, but both don't show it as obviously.
  • Rolling Attack: Jasper when he uses Diamond Hedgehog (guess where that attack name comes from).
  • Shout-Out:
    • Surrak and Emmara are the most obvious for those familiar with Magic: the Gathering. Why? Because their full names are EXACTLY THE SAME to the ones they're shouting out to, Surrak Dragonclaw and Emmara Tandris. Surrak fought and earned his titled of Dragonclaw and Surrak of M:tG apparently got his rank from fighting a cave bear (yes, not exactly the same in aspect, but both earned something by fighting). Emmara is a BanchoLillymon and just what does Emmara of M:tG happen to be involved with? Plants.
      • In another reference to the game, Adirael delivers a deadpan one-liner after a fruitless meeting with Isperia and the Astral Order. Said one-liner happens to be the Flavor Text of Pravh, Spires of Order.
    • Sura says that Bolas reminds her of a red parakeet and Arcades reminds her of a certain someone Vader.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Jasper, as well as the associated trope, Pride. He'd be put under the Narcissist trope, if it weren't for the fact that Word of God said that he can be "pretty affectionate" if you don't get turned off by his attitude. Look what he says when a Kabuterimon was staring at him incredulously when he ate a JewelBeemon's jewel spear.
    Jasper: "Yes, my body is gorgeous, I know."
  • The Spock: Bolas, seeing as he treats his soldiers nothing more than pawns.
  • The Stoic: Jaeger, thanks to years of Metal Empire conditioning him into a weapon.
  • Theme Naming: Many of the characters, despite being made by different people, have a Meaningful Name (whether on purpose or not) for them, often relating to mythlogy or Greek/Roman times. Only, Surrak, Emmara, Goliath, Sawyer (and his real name), Titus, & Sura don't fit this.
  • The Unpronounceable: Sawyer's real name, Daiou. It's pretty hard to pronounce if you're not used to Chinese. Although nobody knows that's his actual name.
