"What crossovers could appear, but haven't?"
 
   There was an older thread about source material that would never appear in UF, for one reason or another. In this one I wanted to suggest potential crossovers that could appear (even if just a cameo) with minimal tweaking.

Samus Aran from the Metroid series. Given the prevalence of power armor, Samus could show up just about anywhere in UF, but with the Covenant returning as seen in the New Frontier sneak peaks, I think Samus would work particularly well as the first success from a reactivated SPARTAN program. Given the appearance of the Elites in The Revolution Will Be Televised in 2409, the Salusians would have had a few years warning to get ready.

Eddie Riggs from Brutal Legend. Face-melting heavy metal, enough said.

Just have one more at the moment, this one would never show up as more than a cameo. The Crescendolls, the (Gamilon maybe?) band from Daft Punk's Interstellar 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem (just re-watched it today)

Shadow appears as one of Gryph's alter egos back in the Golden age. That and the original's lurking around somewhere giving people heart attacks.

The Shadow appeared fully at the end of the Ragnarok, and has been seen helping Raven out during the Blood Ties limited.

Doc Savage... when you have hm, in general, you don't need many more heroes. Leaving him out gives room for other people to be heroes.

Sousuke and the FMP! crew showed up in cameos during the Stearling Saga as part of Emilia's crew in Reunion part 2. No sign since then, which is a shame, but they have been crossed.

   Well, I don't think I've seen too much from the great spy shows of the 1960's - "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.", "Get Smart", "I Spy", "Mission: Impossible", etc. The MI theme music does appear as BGM in a scene in one of the early Symphony installments, IIRC, but that's about it as far as I can think off the top of my head.

Yeah. It takes magical girl tropes, characters, and concepts and then turns it into an action series about something that might be the military and might be cops.

It becomes more space opera the longer the series runs, eventually moves on to telling stories about the children of the main characters, isn't afraid of non-heterosexual or non-traditional relationships, and has a great love of mecha.

Almost any villain can be redeemed, and the power of a good friend can go a long, long, way.

Yeah, I could get an 'Eyrie Productions' vibe from that.

I would also second this. Midchilda could become another spacefaring organization quite easily, and I would love to see a Starlight Breaker to the face of someone who truly deserves it.

However, I have to say that A's is the best of the three series, as StrikerS starts off kind of slow, and the original series takes a few episodes to hit its stride.

EDIT: I just imagined a conversation.

I would love to see Nanoha and co show up. Though the above needs a slight amendment.

   Yeah, that fits. In fact, high energy weapons were part of how Nanoha made some of her best friends

   (At the risk of high-jacking the thread.)
There's a cam-rip fansub of the Movie floating around in the Torrentshpere. I'm looking foward to either a studio picking this up, or at least a discrip fansub.

The creators did a great job of distilling the first season into a 2h movie. Biggest neat cool thing?

(***spoiler, of course***)

Well 2 things

1) Raising Heart has a (much more) significant role as a character, in teaching Our Heroine to wield her magic:

RH: Speed and Power are essential in combat, but there are more important things. Do you know what it is?
N: Uh, the resolve to win?
RH: Good answer, but what else?
N: Um...
RH: Wisdom and Tactics. How to fly and shoot and the theory and practice of aerial combat. I will teach you these things.

(All of this done as Virtual Reality training while she's zoning out in school.) :P

2) The Movie also has action scenes that are better than anything prior. Yes, even A's.

   >I want to suggest the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha universe, but that

I was going to mention it myself. The series is, in many ways, very much an Eyrie work--not just in themes and tropes, but certainly in the winking nods to other anime and sources--this is somewhat less obvious in the first series, which is more about taking the 'magical girl' formula and turning it about 75 degrees clockwise, but becomes far more evident in A's and StrikerS:

Signum is voiced by Kaori Shimizu, who also voices Lamia in Super Robot Taisen, and the two characters are very similar in many ways (And SRT series is also quite Eyrie-like).

Subaru is a nod to GaoGaiGar...

There's a ton of others but I can't remember them all.

Besides, you gotta respect a series that opens its second season with the main character practicing mental control over her magic blast and air-juggling a can 99 times, only to consider herself 'failed' when she misses the trash can. That's some serious stuff right there, especially when you consider she's basically 9 years old.

Going back to the older school--more obscure things like Yuugen Kaisha and Devil Hunter Yohko would make a fit now (less so in the original UF core days, but the series branched out from mecha-space action with a touch of mysticism quite some time ago, ne?)

I don't explicitly recall seeing any mention of Lost Universe outside of Truss getting the Swordbreaker and Canal, and certainly Dark Star would fit in somewhere as a Big Bad.

Metal Fighter Miku -- girls pro-wrestling in power armor? I'd be terribly surprised if -that- wasn't a big-ticket sport -somewhere- in the Eyrieverse.

Hell, Variable Geo would probably fit in nicely, on some colony world somewhere.

   We could always have the SPARTAN program bring in Skuld as a consultant. I have to wonder though, as long as the Metroid series has been around, and especially with the increase in popularity when the series went to 3d with the Prime trilogy, is there a reason why Metroid hasn't shown up in UF yet or has Gryphon just simply not found the right place to use it?

   It could be, as far as we could tell, Gryphon never had a Gamecube, and doesn't have a Wii.

And I have no idea what his state of classic NES ownership was in the past or future.

I had an 8-bit one, but I also had a strange and uncanny knack for not playing the games that would go on to define decade-spanning franchises. Where the cool kids were playing Mario Brothers or Metroid, I was into Dash Galaxy in the Alien Asylum and Rolling Thunder.

And Bionic Commando, which did at least have one sequel eventually. :)

Just to shake things until they rattle, I can almost see SHOGO: Mobile Armor Division getting roped in for the general silliness of it.

Hmm... the various ES pairs from Kiddy Grade would fit right into the 3WA as trouble consultant teams. Some later being picked up by the IPO, no doubt.

I'm not sure if any of them maybe have already, I don't recall any cameos, but the Outlaw Star and crew would also find a home readily enough, though the tech base would maybe need some fiddling (grapler ships as a poor man's knock off for veritech maybe?)

Have Tylor and the crew of the Soyokaze turned up anywhere yet? (I doubt they'd need very much retooling to be fit in somewhere, maybe Earthforce trying to pawn off their 'worst' officers onto the IPO while still looking like they are cooperating since Tylor seems to fall into saving the day backwards all the time.)

I think they might have been part of the Freespacers. They tried to elect him to Fleet Commander on the Screaming Loony ticket, if memory serves...

   Outlaw Star sounds feels like it's happening out on the Outer Rim somewhere where the tech base is more scrubbly and less reliable.

If Justy Ueki Tylor isn't in UF yet, I have firmly placed him into my own official canon of it now. He slides in seamlessly.

In the actual show, it pretty much does take place in that universe's Outer Rim. It is also a show where the main character pretty well literally does the 'kill the bad guys, save the universe, get the girl' (though 'the girl' helps quite a bit with all that, as do the rest of the semi-typical rag-tag crew of misfits.)

Apparently, I missed/flubbed the ref to him somewhere, since it seems he is going by other posts.

Actually I'd be worried about what would happen to anyone Gryph set him on- he's just a little bit unblanaced.

I have?

It seems entirely likely I'd have said something like, "What the hell is that?" or, "I have no idea what you're talking about there," but it seems slightly out of character to dismiss a prospect without even knowing what it is. I mean, yes, I reject out of hand a number of things I've never seen (the various trading-card games come to mind), but I at least know what they are first.

That said, it does seem very improbable that anything I haven't encountered will be appearing. Not impossible - the others slip things by me from time to time - but improbable. This whole thread has been kind of darkly amusing, actually, just from the sheer number of "what the hell are they even talking about?" moments I've had as it's run its course. I thought about calling it off when it first began, on the grounds that "listing stuff that hasn't appeared" is just a passive-aggressive way of nagging, but then I decided I was being too much of a Nazi about it, and anway, as I said, there's been some entertainment value. :)

I was actually vaguely hoping you'd come up with a cite and I'd have to go, "Oh, huh, so I did. That was a weird thing for me to say. Oh well, I am a flawed and inconsistent human being." :)

Man. I can't even remember the last time I watched something animated from Japan that I hadn't seen before. éX-Driver, maybe? Or Blood+. It's been a while, anyway. Tastes change, I suppose.

On the one hand, the way mecha in that series operate does seem to map to Getter rays and such. Even by color.

On the other hand, the series goes -so far- over the top I think it loops around the bottom and back a few times. This is a lot of fun to watch, but it would be a hard thing to shoehorn into a more reasonable universe.

It's a bit weird how often that sort of slightly bluish green turns up as the Mysterious Sci-Fi Energy Source color. Not just across anime, either; the Important Glowy Bit in the middle of the series 1-4 TARDIS console is a very similar color too.

   One thing I recall hearing about, and don't quote me on this because I've never even looked at the wiki, was galaxy shuriken and mecha large enough to use them. Just on that note alone, I'd say TTGL wouldn't be putting in an appearance - not at anywhere even remotely close to full strength, anyway.

Then again, I'm just a reader. Speaking of which, I should find a copy of one of the Lensman books...

   Spiral Power works extremely similiarly if not the same damn way, as Getter Rays. The name of the game in TTGL is constant escalation and rarely remaining at any kind of status quo. The series is 52 episodes long.

Considering all that, it's not quite so surprising what you get in the finale. It's not a giant robot fight without destructible scenery, after all.

And, yes. Between Getter Rays and the Lensman influences, we've got all we need.

Kamina and Simon are great guys, but they shine so brightly in the contrast or something. UF's doing juuust fine.

If they'd gone on any longer, with the power level approximately doubling every two to three episodes? They'd be fighting entire multiversal clusters by the end.

   How to map all five main members of the SOS-dan onto UF.

Kyon is always, and must always remain, the 'everyman' He is trivial to insert, so we'll move on. Perhaps the only issue is how to keep him the everyman and painfully mundane in a universe with so many ways to be awesome.

Koizumi is the team Esper. Psychic on the run from Psi-cops? Maybe a deep cover agent who lost the plot and has gone rouge as a good guy? He'll work as both.

Mikuru is the time traveler. It's not exactly a mainstream thing, but it DOES exist in universe. And she's from far enough in the future that she's unused to all normal technology. She's obviously here on a training mission, to acclimate herself to the current timeline so her future self can come back and do Secret Mission type stuff. Which she does!

Yuki is an alien. More to the point, even for UF she is truly an alien life form, a program designed to translate the will of a god like being that has existed since the beginning of the universe. She's also three years old. She's very good at her duties, and very bad at being a 'human'. She might have been sent to talk to galactic civilization as an ambassador, or she might be here as an unknown observer. Whatever her reasons, she's learned how to play a mean guitar solo.

Then we have Haruhi Suzumiya. I'm pretty sure she's the hardest one. After all, UF has no room for an unconscious sleeping Godhead. Moreover, in a universe with aliens, time travelers and Espers, there's little reason to go looking for them. But her real motivation is to be unique, to stand out from the crowd. To stand apart from the teaming masses, to EXCEL. Even the most elite organization will not do. So she makes her own bizarre one. A high school club to gather up the time travelers, the aliens, and the Espers and have fun with them! It is, in many ways, a mission statement for the entire universe. Maybe she isn't such a bad godhead...

   Ironically, it seems like every major series I've gotten into at one point or another has ended up in UF. Star Trek, Babylon 5, Battle Angel/Gunnm, Read Or Die, Black Lagoon, CSI, and most recently Mass Effect. And those are just the overt cameos and elements, we're not even talkin' the tips-of-the-hat and the small items here and there, like Rad-X and the Jackal (the "smaller" of Geoff Depew's original pistols).

Think the only universe I'd like to see in UF that hasn't appeared yet is Bioshock. Some elements fit the UF universe so well (Art Deco architecture, Dieselpunk elements), while others would be hard to explain (ADAM/EVE, plasmids), and others would seem downright silly (audiotape diaries, hacking being a "new" concept). Plus so much of it is a sort of set piece, with Ryan's motivation for establishing Rapture being to get away from "Bolshevism" of FDR's America, as well as the sort of social/economic/scientific drives of the post-WWII era.

Funny, here I am saying I'd like to see it in UF, yet thinking up plenty of reasons why it shouldn't be. Things that make you go "Hmmm..."

   Random crossover idea that just popped in my head.

It's a little known fact that Olaf Peterson once recorded the vocal patterns for an AI project (Project Ramrod) on the planet Bismarck.

For some reason, he used a fairly accurate John Wayne impersonation...

   What about places in the Real World(TM)? I just had brunch at a place with a steam punk/art deco theme and great burritos and bottomless coffee.

   I've never seen any Moorcock characters in EPU works. I don't know if Gryphon never read any, or just doesn't care for the author, but I've always thought there was a certain parallel between the way Moorcock eventually amalgamated every character and setting he'd published into one all-encompassing multiverse and the crossover extravaganza that is UF.

Sure, Elric is kind of twee, but John Daker/Erekose seems like he'd be oddly appropriate presence in UF. He's a bit of a dick, so I can readily imagine Utena giving him a thorough tongue-lashing. He'd have no choice but to accept the rebuke, as he'd be certain to recognize her as being a particularly noble (and sane) aspect of the Eternal Champion.

You might like The War Hound and the World's Pain, it's got a bit of an In Nomine premise going.

   Has Firefly (or more specifically, Serenity) shown up yet?
I'm not the biggest Browncoat fan, but I am fan.
That and Kaylee & River....

To quote Jayne, "I'll be in my bunk."

And second on the request for both Samus & The Crescendolls. I think you already inserted Daft Punk into the UFverse, but it not...well...

The Stig's musically inclined relatives? They do with synthesizers what he can do behind the wheel?

No, and it's not going to. I skirt the edges of getting sued into the Stone Age enough as it is without specifically going out of my way to taunt the production companies that are on record with their aggression...

No need to be sorry, I'm just telling you how it is. That particular production house is on record as no friend of the "industry" and I'm not goin' there. No point in pissing into the wind.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I think we have a new image for a techno/rock crossover band in UF.

   Given the setting of a school for the best and brightest and an off the cuff reference to 20 Masks I kept expecting CLAMP School characters to show up in early Symphony.

I think this was explored already... the CLAMP School characters would end up running the world.

   I'm still new to this, but have any Mega Man characters appeared at all in UF? I searched the forums for any reference of it, but I couldn't find anything in regards to appearances in UF stories, but that could mean that the series is referenced and just no one has mentioned it in the forums.

   I don't recall ever seeing any Mega Man/Rockman characters, no. Mind you, I think the setting would fit well. But I'm not sure Gryphon has ever played those games.
