Super Robot Wars Unlimited Generation Alpha

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to: navigation, search

Here is another Super Robot Wars in RP form. Set in a post-apocalyptic Earth ruined by what is known as the Second Impact, which isn't just Eva-related this time, the characters are members of the White Chalice, a mysterious carrier that travels the Earth. Like its predecessor a significant portion of the gameplay is in AIM Chat-based "missions" - between 1 and 3 per week. In addition to every trope ever from the series represented...

Tropes used in Super Robot Wars Unlimited Generation Alpha include:


  • Achilles in His Tent - Haruka ends up spending a good month locked up in her room after Imber is taken away before deciding that she just wants to go home. The other characters' reactions vary.
  • Ace Custom - Many characters have had unofficial upgrades to their units, giving them more umph. Among them are the Gundam Mk-II with hidden weapons, Astray Red Frame with a beam rotor system (actually a BuCue head Lowe bought in the animated Red Frame short), the Hyakku Shiki with Slash Harkens and Desu Tsubomi and Erika with beam sabers, beam shields and Slash Harkens.
  • Ace Pilot - Besides all the examples from various canons, Captain Smith was stated to be an unrivaled mech pilot and commander in the past. However, after Second Impact and the debacle with HALO, he's been reduced to a Cloudcuckoolander with brief flashes of competence.
  • Adaptation Expansion - Since G-Savior's movie plot was wrapped up in its introduction, the rest of the canon for it is planned to be based off of the later Playstation 2 game.
  • Adaptation-Induced Plothole - Rinon called the Tigers Team the 'Fuzzy Pandas' when they fought. Too bad the nickname technically hasn't been invented yet, since Bit invented it after their first battle... and Bit hasn't shown up in the game yet!
    • For that matter, the rivalry between the Tigers Team and the Blitz Team itself is an Adaptation-Induced Plothole, since the reason they started their losing streak was losing to the Blitz Team... the first time Bit piloted.
  • Aerith and Bob - Charles, Micheal, Scott, Laura, George, Shirley, Patrick, Christine, Gregory, Frank, Roger and a number of ordinary Japanese names...and Roux, Lockon, Char, Oenone, Gainer, Njall, Vlaska, Roads, Resnick, Hixar, Allelujah, Haman, Sayla, Samus, Tron, Chrono, Canon, Azrad and PRIME
  • After the End - Between various backstories as well as Second Impact, the Earth is very much a mess. The colonies got off lighter, but still suffer from a lack of resources since getting them from Earth is now much more difficult.
  • Amusement Park - Fairy Park.
  • Apocalypse How - Second Impact was a particularly harsh Class 1.
    • ASCENT ended with the crew averting a Class 5.
  • Ascended Extra - Though the cast started out strong, drops reduced Neon Genesis Evangelion down to just Kensuke. Who is now the main character.
  • Ascended Meme - THAT Thread.
  • A Taste of Power - Nanohana and Eri got to use the Endless PreDesu machines during the combat log of Broken Wings, after their initial machines had been pushed to the breaking point.
  • Attempted Rape - The Mai-Otome incident with Arika, though it happening in Arkham and having Shotarou saving her instead. The crew deal out various forms of punishments to the would-be rapists.
  • Awakening the Sleeping Giant - when Haman is captured by Adventus, Char ends up rallying Neo-Zeon, vowing to take down Adventus if they don't return her. The crew realizes they're on borrowed time now.
    • Lucas realizes this is the case now concerning the crew of the White Chalice - they had kidnapped their crew and now they're gunning for them.
  • Back from the Dead / Not Quite Dead - Fusion, thought destroyed during the Metroid / PreDesu mission, returned as New Fusion during the Idolmaster: Xenoglossia / PreDesu mission.
    • HALO. It's AI refused to let anything stop it in its mission.
  • Big Damn Third Faction - The Broken Wings mission ends with ZAFT taking advantage of the Federation's Face Heel Turn on the Chalice crew to wipe them out.
    • For the actual Big Damn Heroes variant, anytime one character races in to replace another if they fell.
  • Book Ends - The first application submitted was for Sanger, just like in Unlimited Generation.
    • Mission 20, DESCENT, was the first major Adventus mission. Mission 73, ASCENT, was the final mission of the Adventus storyline.
  • Break the Haughty - Several people had conspired to make Perrine nicer, or at least make her life miserable. This eventually fell through when other people called them out on targeting Perrine just because she doesn't actively try to please everyone.
  • Breather Episode - After reaching Fairy Park and dealing with one attempt at stealing the Rainbow Jewel, the White Chalice's crew was able to take a break for a week and just relax there.
  • Butt Monkey - Akito. While it was Handwaved that he'd been on the ship, the in-game explanation that Tsukasa had squirreled him away for so long until the second in-game Invader attack lead to most of the crew thinking that he had just joined.
  • Catch a Falling Star - Kazuki ends up doing this to a falling Kamen Rider Fourze.
  • Canon Immigrant - There are a few mechs, introduced and planned, that never made it into the original stories they're from, such as the Perfect Zeong and the Exabyte.
  • Canon Welding - Michael Wilson Jr. being the president of Neo America, among other inevitable examples.
  • Colony Drop - Attempted by the Titans on the Anaheim facilities on the moon. Through some difficulty, the pilots were able to activate enough of the colony's thrusters to redirect it... and along the way Roads kicked one of his Id Beasts into it.
  • Combining Mecha - Beyond the Getter Robo line and the various RPM-type Megazords, Dita's Dread unit has the ability to combine with just about anyone in lieu of a lack of Hibiki. So far, she's combined with the Gundam Mk-II, Akito's Aestivalis, Rinon's Dibison, Julia's old Corona, Nanohana's Desu Tsubomi and even Lily Rain herself.
    • This is also somewhat of a Mythology Gag with the original Unlimited Generation when Gurren Lagann would occasionally combine with other mechs, due to the similarities between Pexis and Spiral power.
  • Cool Ship - White Chalice, the players' base of operations. A carrier capable of underwater AND space travel, it comes complete with its own Cloudcuckoolander NPC captain.
  • Composite Character - Gou is a mashup between his Armageddon and Shin vs. Neo counterparts, with the second personality having come about due to amnesia.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass - Captain Smith of all people, at least a limited degree. It remains to be seen just how much of his old self remains.
  • Darker and Edgier - A strange case. On one hand, between the post-apocalyptic setting and bad guys causing a lot of civilian casualties, this was clearly the intention. On the other hand, a lot of character interaction is silly or comedic, and several of the canons are ridiculously over-the-top and optimistic.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu? - At the end of mission 75, Lily Rain's Pepens distract Kisrill so everyone else can flee to safety. She kills them.
  • Death From Above - Michael pulls this off by having Ryouma take up Neo Getter-2, taking him into near-low orbit, then throw him to Earth. Lowe thinks it's the greatest thing ever and Werter (who came up with the idea in the first place) isn't sure should he be awed or terrified.
  • Deconstruction Crossover - In the same way as in the videogames, some characters go through this.
    • Lynette Bishop deals with killing human beings more than Neuroi, which gradually changes her psyche.
    • Kensuke Aida learns that being an EVA pilot actually sucks ass. Not that his canon wouldn't do the same to him were he presented the chance in the past.
    • Really, this happens between most canons that have differing moods and conflicts.
  • Distaff Counterpart - The IS competition can be seen as one for the Gundam Fight. Both are tournaments run by the Neo countries, and each primarily has combatants of one gender with a few exceptions.
  • Doomed by Canon / Plotline Death - Despite there being a healer handy, there was no way to save Balgus.
  • Downer Ending - Though Super Robot Wars is usually all about averting bad events in canons, if a less-than-happy ending is necessary for the narrative to continue, it'll still play out.
    • Mission 68, "Red Giant". That mission's main characters didn't come out of that in one piece.
    • Any mission where the Festum are involved has a high chance to be this, especially mission 13, "A Goodbye That Came Too Soon" (includes most depressing moments of Martian Successor Nadesico for that extra kick in the teeth) and 24, "Right of Left".
  • Early-Bird Cameo - Judau and Roux, who join halfway through Zeta Gundam's storyline.
  • Enemy Mine - The only reason that Celestial Being is working with the White Chalice -after several skirmishes in the backstory- is that Veda determined the ship and its crew would play a part in eliminating war.
  • Expansion Pack World - A justified case. The setting of the world was intentionally left as vague as possible aside from a few specific features (such as electromagnetic storms in the debris field surrounding the Earth). As more canons are introduced, they establish facts about the Earth Sphere, such as the existence of two moons.
  • Fastball Special - Used by Kamen Rider W and Gundam Alex. Discussed, as Philip read it in a comic book, but Shoutaro pointed that this isn't a comic book. And appropriately enough, Gato was able to resist it with little difficulty.
  • Foreshadowing - Two big cases, even early on. First of all, Tsukasa talking about having nine different sets of Form Ride cards, not noticing one of the cards he tried using was for Double. And secondly the Rushrod's time stop powers failing to work on Calvina and Tohya's machines.
    • During the iDOLMaster / PreDesu mission, New Fusion mentions that the Endless Desu aren't fighting at their full capacity. Hana, however, thinks she's talking about the fight at Fairy Park...
    • At the end of ASCENT, Char makes mention of "Project Puru"
  • Four Is Death and Quirky Miniboss Squad - Adventus's generals
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man! - predictably for the genre, happens quite often. However of note is one example when trying to do this actually made the situation worse.
  • Giant Robot Hands Save Lives - The aforementioned Catch a Falling Star was like this. Kazuki does make Fourze's landing soft enough, though.
  • Gone Horribly Right - Project HALO. The machine was designed to destroy anything Space Colony-sized or larger and it detected Earth. When it was threatened to lose power, it just kept rerouting power to charge up its Colony Buster laser. It's AI refused to let anything stop it from its mission, going so far as to take control of its pilot to prevent him from having second thoughts, which was what happened to Captain Smith.
    • Gone Horribly Wrong - At the same time, HALO's original use could be considered this. Though it did successfully destroy the meteor heading towards Earth, the backlash from the shot and the various fragments still rained down on Earth, causing almost as much damage as would have happened had it been intact when it hit. Additionally, as mentioned above HALO recognized the Earth as its target, very nearly destroying the thing it was meant to protect.
  • Heel Face Revolving Door - Canon Memphis. From working with the Titans, to helping the White Chalice chase down Anavel Gato, to leaving the Chalice after deciding her duty was fulfilled, to helping them stop a Lodestone Elemental, to fighting Kazuki and Kou during the Adventus prison break event, to taking part in a squad led by Graham Aker that first fought against the Chalice pilotes before calling a truce to deal with the Trinities ans the Asgard Squadron. And this is all before her canon introduction!
  • Hero Insurance and Reset Button - The Rainbow Jewel's powers don't apply to *everything*, but it does undo any damage done to surroundings caused by battles against the enemies of the PreDESUs.
  • Heroic BSOD - Haruka suffers a, as of this writing, two month long one to the point where, when she's returned home, she trips on the ground and stays there.
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - Most of the various NPCs introduced so far.
  • Holding Back the Phlebotinum -The Endless Desu are under strict lockdown due to how powerful they are, only to be used should the Rainbow Jewel's safety be truly threatened.
  • Hope Spot - The Tempestas arrives, paralyzing the other Idolmasters and giving the Chalice crew a chance to rescue Imber. New Fusion arrives and shoots it down, not wanting to let allies of the PreDesus have their way.
  • Fundamentally Female Cast - The White Chalice pretty much had to be one of these, at least at first. The largest cast of a canon introduced at the beginning of the game that gets put into play before missions start? Strike Witches.
    • Once characters from other canons started joining in, however, the numbers of male and female characters became more or less equal, with a bit more of the former.
  • Infinite Supplies - Averted. The crew suffered from a lack of food and parts from late October into early December. When Van asks what the hell happened to the supplies they got from Fanelia, it's Handwaved that the Chalice wasn't properly resupplied prior to the attack on the kingdom. It was not until crossing into Federation territory and bargaining for supplies from a base in Africa that things were brought back up to speed.
  • Insistent Terminology - The similarities between the Percolatii and Worms are prominent enough that time was set aside during the first encounter with the former to insist they were completely different.
  • Japan Takes Over The West Coast - A decent-sized chunk of the survivors of the Festum's rampage through Japan settled in America. Though to be fair that's no hard task since the continents (or whats left of them) have no central government, don't house any of the remaining world superpowers, and have an ocean between them and the Federation and Britannia.
  • Joke Unit - Many units in the game are ridiculed for one reason or another, including Zakus, Julia's original Corona unit and the Neo Getter Robo.
  • Just Friends - Haruka learns this the hard way when Ichitaka mentions that he thought of her as a great friend... after having Imber stolen from her. To be fair, Haruka also made the mistake of confronting him in the middle of the night and Ichitaka just assumed everything was okay.
    • Both Ichitaka and Haruka call each other out on this a little later - Haruka for not telling Ichitaka what was going on in the first place and Ichitaka for being blind to Haruka's feelings.
  • Lava Is Boiling Kool-Aid and Convection, Schmonvection - Played around with during the Magma Diver mission. EVA Unit 04 had special equipment that protected it and Kamen Rider Fourze's costume could withstand the heat and pressure and he used the Water Switch to cool things down somewhat. When Kazuki and the Mark Elf needed to save them though, the machine's lack of protection still nearly got it melted before Kazuki eventually got them out.
  • Legacy Pilot - Kazuki becomes this for the late Ryo, able to pilot a Fafner significantly safer than the TSX because of Ryo's sacrifices.
  • Loophole Abuse - Invoked unknowingly by the players when fighting Raal Rovdy. On foot, Rovdy was able to beat around Azrad=Aeon with little difficulty since magic duels are stated to not take into account things like the size and strength, and logic is not a factor in determining a battle's outcome. However, the opposite was true too, thus even with all of his immense power, the combined powers of the protagonists was enough to force him to retreat after being seriously injured.
    • Chibodee pretty much used this to fight back against the invading Neo-America army in Corinth. Since the IS organization doesn't see Richard Hawk's presidency as legit, Chibodee sees it as a good reason to fight back.
    • And applied again concerning the Witches and the RPM Rangers - though Britannia had effectively disbanded them, they were still part of the Chalice crew and ended up still fighting Tenaya and the Neuroi.
  • Killed Off for Real - Currently, only Ryo Masaoka and Frank Symes. Though they certainly were tearjerkers.
  • The Japan Fireball - Due to the Festum going to town on the country even before Second Impact and then everything that followed, Japan is pretty much gone. Aside from a select handful of important locals, such as Tokyo-3 the whole country is a no-mans land.
  • MacGuffin - The Allspark and the Rainbow Jewel. Stored safely on-board the White Chalice.
  • More Dakka - Played straight with a lot of machines, like Cheng's Behemoth and its upgrades and Rinon's various Zoids as well. Then subverted when Hana tries it before and during the Vandread season one finale, only to have others tell her it doesn't suit her and she ends up dumping her payload and destroying it to save Chrono.
  • Missing Episode - Currently, the mission "Right of Left" is the only mission whose log is not available on the site's wiki, due to it being lost.
  • Mood Whiplash - The Red Giant mission occured a day after the Hammer To Fall one, and the day after that, THAT thread happened. Soon after that, Devon's and Cheng's wedding occured. Then following that was DOWNFALL.
  • Most Common Superpower - Surprisingly, not many women are mentioned to have this, though Alessandra was quite displeased when Sora didn't... stack up to her fellow Irgelion Julia.
  • Multiple Choice Past - Although it's yet to be brought up in the game, the wiki entry for Maxene Trendy comments that most of the accounts people have for her prior to joining the Chalice are contradictory and don't match up.
  • Noodle Incident - Shoutaro had Philip look up information on Yurika Misumaru including the keyword "costumes". Philip refused to repeat the search or tell Shoutaro the results.
  • No Hero to His Valet - The Britannian Empire. For the most part it's a lot less screwed up than the only other superpower on Earth, the Federation and a lot less villainous than it was in the canon due to it being a composite between the Geass and Strike Witches versions of the nation. Even the racism and social darwinism are not as prominent, seeing as how the 501st is led by a Japanese woman and the country is on good terms with the Fuso Empire, which has the largest concentration of survivors from the Festum's attack on Japan. On the other hand, Britannia has policies just as harsh in Area 11 as it did in the anime, with the populace there still hating the empire.
  • Off the Rails - The first encounter with DJ RGNK. What was steadily leading ton a Downer Ending turned into a victory when Fate started singing and other people joined in, Zappa deciding to let anyone else, even those not on the mission, join in the singing. Though this wasn't planned, it nevertheless forced RGNK to retreat.
  • Oh Crap
  • One Steve Limit - Averted with Flynn McAllistair and Flynn O'Shea. This also the reason why Nanohana is referred to as "Hana" - to separate her from Nanoha
  • Original Generation - A lot of examples, including that one. All of them come with their own plot and bad guys. Except for Loraine.
  • Panty Shot - The Strike Witches, of course, since they don't wear pants. Lampshaded by Philip in his first mission. It's on to the point they are nicknamed, In and Out of Character, the Pantless Brigade.
  • Perspective Flip - The solution to running the Vandread plot with someone playing Dita but no Hibiki. Similarly, Still Not Safe was conceived as a play-by-post RPG with an array of player-characters who didn't make the jump, resulting in the plot focusing on Devon, Laura, and Frank.
  • Post Script Season - Shinji and Ren, unlike Tsukasa, Shoutarou, Philip, Terui and Gentarou, come from the end of their series.
    • Technically, Sayla as well
  • Power Copying - beyond the original trope namer, both Tsukasa and Samus do this as well. To a lesser extent, many of the modified units are like this, swiping weapons from other units.
  • Power of Love - Gentarou invokes this to not only defeat Super Galaxy King, but make sure Nadeshiko lives!
  • Public Domain Mecha - Grunt machines, with the permission of players involved, can be and have been featured in prominently in Original Generation canons. These include the Gelgoog, Gyan, Leo, Gespenst, and a Jeagan.
    • This also counts for opponents as well, as many foes take up lesser-known MSVs
  • Puzzle Boss - The two Oxygen Elementals fought in the second Scales of Balance mission. Being able to completely corrode a mech in mere seconds and kill anyone outside of one, the pilots eventually resorted to depressurizing the colony to suck one out, while Herb and Werter lit the other on fire after trapping it in a force field so it wouldn't ignite the rest of the colony's air as well.
  • Rasputinian Death - Project HALO in spades. Destroying its head, tearing open its leg and chest, smashing two Getter drills through its chest, and blowing off one of its arms and part of its torso barely inconvenienced it at all. Even Lans activating its self-destruct system and blowing out its cockpit, reactor, and most of the rest of its torso only delayed its colony buster a few moments. It took a concentrated effort by numerous Chalice members to finally take it down.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot - As was the case with the original RP, when players drop for whatever reason so do their plots.
  • Remember the New Guy? - A variant, at any rate. Some of the characters are presented having previous knowledge of other people from before the game started, such as Josh having become friends with both Calvina and Tohya on separate occasions.
  • Replacement Scrappy - An in-universe case. The second Fafner pilot the White Chalice meets is Canon Memphis, a Federation soldier and a stark contrast to the late Ryo Masaoka in nearly every way, being much more cold and distant. Unsurprisingly, Canon gets on a lot of people's nerves, especially those who had been close to Ryo.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here - Following the prison break and the deaths of Jeremy and Dr. RGNK, the Titans and the Federation have ended up pulling out of their alliance with Adventus.
  • Shout-Out - Quicksilver, from Still Not Safe's canon, seems to look at the Scout's lines.
  • Show Within a Show - The original exploits of the Getter team were made into a heavily butchered, Lighter and Softer version called Starvengers, which is a bit of a Berserk Button for Ryouma and Hayato. Similarly, the various Kamen Rider shows are stated to have been a documentaries rather than fictional toku shows.
  • Sneeze Cut - Reoccurring, when a player catches their character being mentioned in another (usually more light-hearted) thread.
  • Sole Survivor - The only survivor of the Metroid attack on a mine is a puppy. Whom Tsukasa takes up and gives to the dog-phobia-stricken Ren
  • Soundtrack Dissonance - Chris gunning down the Kampfer after linking the gleefully inappropriate War in the Pocket theme song.
  • Speak Ill of the Dead - The first genuine Kick the Dog moment the Titans get is besmirching Ryo's name and Tatsumiya Island all in the same breath. It was quite the Berserk Button for quite a few pilots.
  • Spell My Name with an "S"
    • Despite the official English spelling being "Leena", Rinon Toros' player prefers the Japanese spelling. Why? a) because it sounds more interesting, and b) because you see it onscreen in one episode, in English, even in the edited version.
      • Parodied by Zappa in her intro mission, by "misspelling" it and having to correct his spelling of the name.
    • Justified with MarKus, whose capital letter comes from a typo on his birth certificate.
  • Spared by the Adaptation - so far Bernie Wiseman and Nadeshiko Misaki have been spared from their deaths
  • Spiritual Successor - To Super Robot Wars Unlimited Generation, with many of its players and game masters returning.
  • Stealth Pun - The first Bliss Stage mission is called "First Action", referring to a term from the game it came from but also the fact it's the first mission in the whole RP.
  • Storming the Castle / Prison Break - As a distraction for the Divine Crusaders' own Storming the Castle, the Chalice crew attack an island prison to rescue their friends.
  • Sure Why Not - As with Super Robot Wars Unlimited Generation, things can deviate from source material only if they are awesome.
    • Case in point - the fourth Martian Successor Nadesico mission semi-averts the events of the sixth episode by having Yurika launch the units on-board and hope for the best instead of raising the Distortion Field and dooming the refugees. Only half the people were saved, but it was better than nothing.
  • Taking You with Me - New Fusion uses a powerful Kill Sat to try to obliterate the PreDesu and others with them.
  • The Bus Came Back - A few months after the Getter Team left to fight the Dinosaur Empire, they finally came back, mission complete and the Tower finally repaired.
    • Bus Crash - The Dinosaur Empire, however, was not as fortunate, and Emperor Gore is said to have been killed offscreen.
  • The Last Dance - Ryo Masaoka's final mission. With his efforts to stave off the assimilation syndrome finally being rendered moot, he chose to battle the Festum once last time to help the inhabitants of the L-Boat flee even though it was just hastening his death.
  • Theme Music Power-Up - as expected of a Super Robot Wars game, players often link appropriate music when their characters do something awesome.
  • The Unexpected - Super Robot Wars Unlimited Generation was a lot better in sticking to primarily mainstream stories. Not here, what with Cosmic Break, Bliss Stage (if only for a short while), Galaxy Angel, and even G-Saviour.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill - Kampfer is closing in to take out the Alex. What does Chris do? Pump enough lead into the suit's cockpit to carve it out and liquefy the pilot.
  • There Are No Therapists - somewhat averted - Tsukasa seems to have taken up this role recently.
  • Traveling At the Speed of Plot - The White Chalice is pretty shameless about this, to the point it only took one week to travel from the Moon to Mars... and at one point took several weeks to travel from Florida to Africa.
  • Under the Mistletoe - Haman invokes this when she arrives. Hilarity (and a couple of upgraded relationships) Ensues.
  • Unknown Rival - In spite of Jerid harboring a grudge against Kamille and voicing it, during the Zeta Gundam missions Kamille's been more concerned with other enemies, leaving Jerid to just get his ass handed to him by other people.
  • Village Bicycle - A literal example, just like in the original. Many units that are abandoned for something much more powerful are usually taken up by other characters, especially those who don't have their canonical units. Among the numbers include a Gloucester, an I-Savior, the G-Savior and even Neo Getter Robo.
  • Villain Team-Up - One born out of necessity, as was revealed in the Getter Robo intro. With much of the Earth saturated with Getter Rays, the Dinosaur Empire had no choice but to be assimilated by the Invaders to continue to fight to reclaim the Earth. Cue Mechasauruses becoming full-blown Body Horror.
    • As well, a number of villainous groups such as OZ and the Titans have allied themselves with Adventus. The Zeta Gundam mission in space shows Jerid leading a group of Advent units in Titans colors.
  • Villainous Breakdown - in the Project PreDestiny/Metroid introduction mission, Sasodina snaps after Forte kills Kobra and Nanohana kills Kumojack. Both Nanohana and Eri are shocked by her breakdown.
  • Walking Disaster Area - Most places the White Chalice visits have a tendency to end up as a smoking pile of ruin, or at least get attacked by one enemy or another and suffer significant damage and casualties. This did not escape the characters' attention as they mention it themselves.
  • Wartime Wedding - In the loosest sense of the term concerning the marriage of Devon and Cheng.
  • Welcome Back, Traitor - The crew easily welcomes Cheng back with open arms after it's revealed that he was Brainwashed and Crazy, with the exception of Alexi, who planned to ventilate his head before whacking him with the gun and saying they're back to square one.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist - The original villain Adventus seems to be this, a faction dedicated to stopping wars and conflict by any means necessary. They also hate all giant robots, blaming them for the Second Impact. Which doesn't stop them from using mecha themselves.
  • What the Hell, Hero? - Despite many characters being on the side of good, a number of them have pulled questionable moves that's earned them a few of these comments. Most of them have been aimed at Kamille.
  • Whole Character Arc Reference - Miki Hoshii was one of the few Idolmaster characters who did not make the transition to Idolmaster: Xenoglossia, so her character development and behaviour is mainly drawn from the original game while retooling it for the setting.
  • Who Would Want to Watch Us? - Subverted in varying ways. It's explained in-universe that the Kamen Rider franchise was non-fiction, with all the shows just being documentaries filmed after the events and actually quite successful. Getter Robo also got a similar treatment, albeit as the heavily edited "Starvengers", a show which is a Berserk Button for Ryouma and Hayato.
  • The Worf Effect - DOWNFALL ends up doing this to the entire Kamen Rider cast, having Kamen Riders Blade, Accel, Fourze and half of Double captured and Decade suffering from memory loss from pushing himself too far.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain and Wham! Episode - The mission Broken Wings marked the sudden downturn to the Chalice's improved relationship with the Federation, coupled with Adventus joining forces with the Federation.
    • DOWNFALL.
  • 0% Approval Rating - It seems this is the fate both White Chalice and Adventus wish for one another. Seeing as though the last two encounters have ended in draws, it probably hasn't gone down much, though White Chalice has the disadvantage of being connected to known terrorists.
    • With Adventus and the Titans aiding each other and the ambush, the Chalice crew feels that this has happened.
    • This pulled a 180 with Adventus's defeat, however, with the Titans also landing in serious hot water for their involvement with the group.
