Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Infinite Loops, also known as the Infinite Loops Project (ILP), or the Innortal-style Time Loops, are an ever-expanding genre of Time Loop fanfics.The premise is that something has happened to Yggdrasil, the World Tree computer that contains and runs the multiverse. As a result, the various universes have been put in 'safe mode', time-looping until Yggdrasil can be repaired. Each universe's loop is maintained by the presence of an Anchor, a core person from that loop who is the first to notice their universe is looping. There is always an Anchor in a Loop.As repairs to Yggdrasil continue, more people in each universe begin Looping as well, but are not necessarily aware participants in every Loop; only the Anchor is so blessed... or cursed. Your mileage may vary. Characters that are aware of the Loops and retain memories of their previous go-arounds are termed "Awake".Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })In addition, Fused Loops allow Loopers from different universes to interact. As a given, Loopers are tremendously stir-crazy due to the loops. Hilarity usually ensues.

Reading Ahead in the Script: As mentioned above, savvy loopers will exploit the Mutually Fictional nature of loops to get an overview of any world they end up in. Some loopers even keep a copy of their own script on hand to give to newcomers.

The Artifact
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_13d7a65e
comment
The Artifact: The Gods trying to repair Yggdrasil being referred to as 'Admins. This was because, originally, the Admins from Ah! My Goddess were the ones repairing the multiverse. As the loops continued to grow and more deities based on actual mythical deities began popping up, actual Admins from the anime started becoming rarer and rarer, to the point they almost never pop up at all. The time loop itself can end up becoming this for a few loop compilations. While they usually start out following the 'screwing around with canon events' plotlines, depending on how much source material there is (and sometimes even if there is a lot to go on), the snips slowly start to go from 'messing around with canon events' to 'watching near god like characters play around and mess with each other', or 'watch them deal with odd variants', or 'watch them interact with characters not from their canon'. Of course, this is by no means a inherently bad thing. A lot of the more well known and liked snips tend to fall into those three categories.

comment
Recursive Fanfiction: Technically, all the fics made after Innortal's. Though they all have their own unique plots in between the episodic shenanigans, they're still set in the same overall Multiverse as his. (Though, exactly what and which of Innortals snips are treated as canon by the community as a whole thanks to his... err, unique brand of humor is still heavily debated to this day.) Loops based around other fanfiction universes also tend to pop up pretty frequently too. Notably, even a few characters from Fanfiction universes have ended up becoming loopers too. These include Nobody Dies Rei and Nyx.

Darker and Edgier: And Lighter and Softer. Gets zig zagged pretty frequently. While generally light hearted, some writers will often write darker and more serious snips for several reasons, be it for character development reasons, plot reasons, or just because. Likewise, more serious in nature loop series will often have sillier snips that fall more in line with usual loops shenanigans.

Cosmic Flaw: Yggdrasil, the world tree, is actually a gigantic computer and each of its branches is a different reality, and it so happens that that computer has crashed; so badly that the gods - better known as Admins - are trying to fix it and the only way to buy time is to have people in the various settings repeat their lives over and over and over again. And yes, the system is susceptible to viruses.

Power Limiter: Ranma has a set, wished up from the Dragon Balls. Also the original function of the Subspace Pockets, to take up increasingly larger amounts of the Looper in question's power and mental focus. The side-effect of carrying things past the Loop reset is entirely tangential, but is used as a selling point to newer Loopers.

Breaking the Fourth Wall: Inverted. Since all the characters know that the Hub universe (our world) exists, references to this generally make sense In-Universe. The only true example is Deadpool, who is the only one aware of the writers working on the Infinite Loops (and he isn't even looping).

Can't Take Anything with You: Unless it's soul-bonded to younote Usually restricted to powerful magical artifacts or you put it in your subspace pocket. Items from locked Loops can't be taken even with subspace pockets, and tend to get replaced with disapproving notes from the Admins. Twilight Sparkle was very disappointed to learn that she wouldn't get to play with Time Lord technology.

Crapsack World
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_21d70919
comment
Crapsack World: Not only are examples of these settings caught up in the loops, some realities are labeled as Quarantined either because they are filled with malicious malware and viruses, manifesting as a mind raping Eldritch Abomination to Loopers, or because there are things in their baseline which are flat out dangerous to the multiverse as a whole. Uzumaki is an example of the former and the Skaia protocol used to be an example of the latter. Also the Lovecraft Mythos, albeit due to a nonstandard cause: Several worlds that were this in baseline, however, have begun to improve over time, thanks to the efforts of the Loopers. The Twilight universe isn't highly regarded by visiting Loopers. It almost drove its Anchor, Leah, to despair and madness.

Aborted Arc
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_23698fa8
comment
Aborted Arc: Given that multiple writers work on several loops at a time, this is bound to happen, though most are pretty good about finishing what they start. Most of the time this tends to happen because the arc isn't all that well received either by fellow loop writers or readers, a case of real life getting in the way, or a loop writer simply losing interest in the loops in general. Of course, there are cases of loop writers genuinely forgetting they were writing an arc too.

Mythology Gag
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_26ac510e
comment
Mythology Gag: Each of the Admins for each universe tends to have a job suited for their skills and talents. Aphrodite, goddess of Beauty, gets roped into administrating the Eiken loops, mostly to keep up appearances. (Considering what she's like, most admins consider this to be a win/win: she's one of the very few who likes that branch.) Artemis, who was among other things a goddess of wild animals, is in charge of the Jurassic Park and Prehistoric Park Loops. Baron Samedi, Loa in charge of death (and certain aspects of life), gets The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. Bishamonten, god of righteous warriors and punisher of evildoers, runs the collective Gundam loops. Clio, the Muse of History and Zeus' daughter, coded the Assassin's Creed loops. Epona, Celtic goddess of horses and fertility, is in charge of the Legend of Zelda loops and, on at least one occasion, has looped in as Epona. She's also Sleipnir's girlfriend. Ganesha, god of learning and education, helms the terminally confusing, inconsistent and incomplete Attack on Titan loops. Hephaestus, god of technology, is responsible for the multitude of Mega Man Loops, as well as Ratchet and Clank and Thomas the Tank Engine. Hades, god of the underworld (the place where souls reside), being the admin for Soul Eater, Danny Phantom and Blue Exorcist. Janus, a god of passageways, manages the Portal Loops. Also, he became Admin for Disney/Kingdom Hearts loops, but eventually needed to have other Minor Gods help out to lift some of the burden. Loki, the Norse god of trickery, is the Admin for How to Train Your Dragon. Maat, responsible for judging the deceased, manages the Ace Attorney Loops. Masakado, local deity of Tokyo, manages the Shin Megami Tensei and Persona Loops. Nut, a Egyptian goddess of the heavens (i.e. space), is in charge of the Star Wars and Star Trek Loops. Persephone, Hades' wife who is also a goddess of flowers (and daughter of the goddess of the harvest), is the admin for Trigun. Sleipnir, who is a horse, happens to be in charge of the My Little Pony Loops. Thor, who had a chariot pulled by two goats, is (partially) responsible for the Goat Simulator Loops. Zurvan, the one who got the Doctor Who universe Loops going, was a god of what else but time and space. Tu Di Gong, a Chinese god of wealth and and merit, handles Total Drama.

comment
Dirty Business: Came up during the Crisis. A virus had been uploaded that was guaranteed to activate someone by the end of the Loop and the coding of said virus was inclined towards villainous characters. There was no way to purge the virus or otherwise stop it on the Admins ends and crashing loops to stop it would act as activation criteria. So the Anchors and Loopers of the Loops had to go around killing all possible threats that could be activated to counter the virus. This did not just include villains either, but anyone who could become a threat should they begin Looping. Quite a few Loopers were far from happy with having to do so but accepted that it was necessary.

Black Hole Sue: In-Universe, Leah complains how no matter what she or anyone else does, "Everything seems to revolve around those two idiots (Bella and Edward) and their relationship, whether it wants to or not." It's a fact that most loopers, even from said verse, cannot stand, and it's why those two are the most wildly hated two non-loopers both in and out of universe because of it. Regardless, it doesn't stop loopers from causing them hell every chance they get, no matter how much they eat up baselines they loop into.

Hidden Depths
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_2dc0d2bf
comment
Of course, there's also character interpretations and such. One writer may write an arc to show that a character has some rather deep Hidden Depths... while another can write an arc shortly after that has them extremely Flanderized for the sake of comedy. Both can be true, also, given the nature of the Loops being a massive Time Abyss.

Tomato in the Mirror: Those suffering from Chrysalis Syndrome (AKA: First awaking after a non-baseline run where they have a different role, and thus keeping their memories from that instead of their usual baseline) go through a brief bout of this. Thankfully, it's not as bad as Dissassociative Loop Identity Disorder because after the first initial loop, they have a solid baseline to get used to, but they do have a hard time accepting it depending on what their role was. (Especially if they're normally a villain, which usually results in My God, What Have I Done?.)

Older Than They Look: All the loopers eventually, though it's most notable with "children" loopers. Even though they're technically well beyond 'of age' it's still weird to see stuff like the Cutie Mark Crusaders drinking alcoholic beverages and doing other non-children appropriate things, especially if they don't use magic to age their bodies up beforehand.

Ascending to In-Universe Godhood is alright, like Goku becoming a Super Saiyan God, and quite a few loopers have become powerful enough to be considered gods in their own right. Ascending to Adminhood, however, is a bad thing. A very, very bad thing. Just ask Madoka...

Hammerspace: Pockets. These are the only way Loopers can carry things over between the loops. The size of a Pocket is a function of power, how recently someone began looping, and to some extent authorial choice. (For example, Ichigo early in his Loops has space for either his Shinigami badge or Kon, but not both; conversely, Ranma, one of the oldest and most powerful Loopers, collects death stars.)

Death Is Cheap
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_37fcf16
comment
Death Is Cheap: Most loopers regard death as an annoyance or minor inconvenience due to the loop reset always bringing them back. Rincewind, on the other hand, is so efficient at running away that he has not yet died in ANY loop... Until the death of Sir Terry Pratchett, at least. Since Death couldn't be there for Sir Terry in the Hub, Rincewind goes in his place, and dies for the first time in the Loops.

Bittersweet Ending
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_40cc0c7e
comment
Bittersweet Ending: How the Crisis was resolved falls here. To counter a virus that threatened to activate any villains who lived to the end of the Loop already active Loopers had to go around killing them so they couldn't activate. This did not just include outright villains but also those who didn't necessarily qualify as villains but would have been threats regardless. The Loopers who went through this got put through an emotional wringer to wind up with a mixed blessing. On one hand not every villain could be found and killed before the Loop ended, meaning those universes now have Looping threats active in them. On the other hand the universes that did deal with threats successfully got a new friendly Looper activation. For an example of the latter, the RWBY loopers compiled a list on who they didn't want looping, and successfully managed to kill them before their Loop ended. As a result, they gained two more Loopers in Maria Calavera and Mercury Black, the latter trying (and failing) to Stealth Loop.

Go Mad from the Isolation
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_4f3c14ca
comment
Go Mad from the Isolation: It's been demonstrated that if no explanation is forthcoming, and no fused loops occur, most Loopers and Anchors tend to psychologically deteriorate. The first case of this is known to be amongst the four original Evangelion loopers who, in a bout of desperation, deliberately crashed their loop with enough violence to force an early fused loop. Since then, most worlds experience semi-regular (though still random) fused loops. It's noted that some worlds tend to have a significantly lower fused/unfused ratio of loops, which only had negative effects on its Anchor and Loopers. The Shin Megami Tensei verse is the best and most current example. Intriguingly, an inversion of this is seen with Traveling Loopers. Since they crisscross the multiverse so much, they can not often form strong emotional bonds and are left feeling isolated and alone. The best example of this is Bariss Offee, whose own code regularly results in her being far away from other Loopers.

Uniqueness Decay: A given, considering loopers can stick most things in their subspace pockets, which results in the item being duplicated when the loop resets. Everything from the Elements of Harmony, the Master Sword, to the Dragon Balls can, and likely has, many duplications of it throughout the multiverse. (Though, some of them don't retain the powers they have outside of the initial loop they got it from.)

Heel–Face Turn: Apparently a requirement for villains to start looping. So far, the only exceptions have been the villains from The Venture Bros., and that's because they treat evil more as a hobby than anything else. Anti Villains can sometimes slip by though, due to not technically being villains. Paradox from the Yu-Gi-Oh! loops is such an example. Sadly, MLEs are often aversions of this.

Sanity Slippage: It's implied but not outright stated that Kaylee has Sakura Syndrome, after a dozen Loops where Serenity's technical problems keep changing, with her having no idea why it's happening.

Once Done, Never Forgotten: Absolute Zero seems to have one of these moments. During said loop he installed an MP3 player and spekaers in his armor, then started to ilberly play Let it Go when he felt like it. He however failed to check to see who else was Awake, so Argent Adept recorded the whole thing and uses it to annoy Absolute Zero. Applejack will never live down the time she tried to make an alcoholic beverage out of potatoes (explanation: their name in French means 'apples of the earth', so she tried to make cider out of them) and ended up creating what has since been dubbed "potato acid", which blinded Twilight (who had to ascend to alicorn form to fix it), and set Discord on fire. This has been brought up several times since, with Applejack complaining about not being allowed to live it down.

As time has gone on, more focus has been placed on what's going on at the Admin level, and how the problems with Yggdrasil affect various loops.

Story-Breaker Power: Between the accumulation of personal abilities/skills/etc., access to all sorts of tech from around the multiverse, and simple experience, veteran loopers tend to short-circuit the plotlines of any loop they enter. (Especially if they've visited the "Hub" loop and had time to digest the relevant source material.) Part of the reason Death Notes were near flat-out banned was because of this trope, as they managed to be a Story-Breaker Power even by looper standards!

Willfully Weak: No Looper is allowed to ascend to the same level of godhood as the admins, as it will cause the destruction of their home loop. Experienced Loopers normally use a mixture of Guile Hero, Power Limiter, Manipulative Bastard, and the tools in their subspace pockets to avert Victory Is Boring.

Timey-Wimey Ball: The loops hate this, resulting in the Doctor Who universe being Read-Only for a long time. This is because causing a Temporal Paradox while in a Loop causes it to crash, something a bit more severe than simple premature termination of a Loop.

Stealth Expert: Every Star Trek Looper manages to keep themselves hidden incredibly well, to the extent that only two have been discovered by other Loopers so far, Captain Kirk and Captain Picard. The reason for this is because if the Department of Temporal Investigations found out, the Trek Loopers would be buried in paperwork.

Apocalypse How: Actions that result in Eiken Loops or extremely messed-up Loops often fall somewhere in here. In addition, the Loops themselves are a last-ditch effort by the gods that run reality to stave off the absolute highest level of this. An event known as The Crash involves the highest level of destruction happening to an entire branch, that is a universe and its directly related multiversal variants, of Yggdrasil.

What happens if this happens to a Looper (at least in-universe) is explained in a Mega Man loop. It won't get rid of the Looper for good, but as Sonic explains it, getting hit with the Ultimate Annihilator (essentially a Ret-Gone weapon) tends to end the Loop really fast.

Dimensional Traveler: Traveling to a variation of the universe you're in isn't a problem, as it's technically part of the same Loop. Traveling to a completely different Loop, on the other hand can create significant problems within Yggdrasil, especially if an Anchor spends a great deal of time during a Loop outside their Loop of origin. Once Upon a Time was been designated Read-Only for a long time, since no one could tell just how many Anchors were needed to stabilize the multiple tangled potential Loops it encompasses in the first place.

Time Crash: Something happened to the multiverse, resulting in every world being put into a looping safe mode while the admins sort things out. The Crash, which happens when something went horribly wrong in a fused Mega Man Loop, resulting in the total erasure of the unknown loop. It had knock-on effects through-out the other universes, even causing several new loopers to activate. Another one happens later on, this time because of a human-obsessed Lyra Heartstrings, a magical portal, and a poorly thought-out plan, which according to Twilight Sparkle prematurely ended at least three separate loops, and set the loops back by a few thousand years.

comment
Multiple-Choice Past: Those suffering under Dissassociative Loop Identity Disorder experience this, much to their dismay as after a while, even they aren't sure who the 'real' them is. It's caused when a Looper has many different variants based on how many Alternate Continuities their loops universe has, where they have different roles and personality in almost every one of them. The most extreme cases are April 'O Neil (who has no less than ten possible 'real' hers and personalities) and Lyra Heartstrings, who has four based on common fandom interpretations of her. (Though, unlike April, she's embraced her split personalities and frequently talks to them in her mind when she has to make important decisions.)

Mood Whiplash: Due to the way the loops are structured, being episodic and having many different writers writing for it, this can pop up frequently. One loop can have the loopers wondering why they looped in as cuttlefish, while the next loop after it can be about the loopers trying to survive in a dystopia variant/fused loop.

Reality-Breaking Paradox: Occasionally pops up, which results in the loop ending earlier than normal. Granted, it's a bit more justified due to the multiverse being on the fritz.

Alas, Poor Villain: The typical (but by no means only) view of Sakura.

She has managed to recover a little bit, but she still has her relapses.

Fate Worse than Death: The cases where Loopers end up in Eiken usually qualify as this. Except for Haruhi and those who come from the Red VS Blue Loops.

Take That!
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_b53077b3
comment
Take That!: While doing Take Thats towards other loops or loop settings is extremely frowned upon (unless it's considered an acceptable target by the community at large), this doesn't stop the authors from slipping in remarks about their feelings towards other things, some of which are actually aimed at things in the loops they're writing for! The fact that The Conversion Bureau variants are often treated with by disdain from the FiM loopers, and the multiverse at large, can be see as a Take That! to its setting. While not treated as A Fate Worse Than Death territory, they're often not particularly fond of pre-Gen IV MLP loops either. Twilight is often treated as a Fate Worse than Death loop for a good portion of the Multiverse, its Anchor (Leah) included! Eiken loops, being used as the most common punishment loop, is in the same boat too. The Star Wars loopers aren't particularly fond of the more Merchandise-Driven spin-offs of their loops, the Christmas special being a very common target. And of course, a lot of authors are not above sporking common fandom plots or clichés, be they Mary Sues, Copy Cat Sues, Trapped in TV Land variants, or common Ron the Death Eater targets. Pretty much if it's a common fandom plot element, it's been parodied or picked at in the loops at some point.

Alternate Reality Game: In a sense. The 'Hub' universe is suppose to be our universe, and isn't looping because it was the only universe not damaged by what supposedly caused the loops in the first place (aside from Eiken, of course). While rarely ever brought up, there is mention that loop compilers and writers are supposedly seers who are able to see the shenanigans the characters get up to in the loops and are compelled to write about it as part of Yggdrasil's system of backing up data. It's also possibly for loopers to loop into something called a 'near-Hub' loop for a brief time, which is essentially a copied, one-off loop version of our world where the Loops fan-fiction itself doesn't exist, to prevent Loopers accessing the main backups. Not many writers actually do anything with this outside of the characters talking to their original creators or taking items from the Hub loop, but it's there, technically making the loops this trope.

Nerf
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_e545e190
comment
Nerf: In-Universe, several powers or artifacts that could easily cause a loop crash have been seriously toned down by the Admins in order to keep such things from happening. Some notable examples: Most things that grant wishes that can/or cause high level reality warping have been toned down to where they can't do anything that would cause a loop crash, such as the Dragonballs, Fairy Magic, or most high level Reality Warpers in general like Haruhi. Death Notes have been altered to where they can't work outside of pure baseline runs or their fused loop of origin, since even non-loopers or MLEs would be able to kill even the most powerful of loopers and anchors due to it being an even bigger Story-Breaker Power than what even the most powerful of loopers can posses. (And unlike the deplorable word, Death Notes could be activated from anywhere in the universe they're currently in before the nerf was applied, are divine in nature instead of magical, making countering them difficult, can be used before the looper is even aware they're in they're in the same loop as one and could reasonably react to counter it, and allows the user to pick and choose who they want to kill. This would allow MLEs to remove any problematic loopers to their goal while keeping certain characters they need alive for whatever their goal may be.) While outside loopers can gain an element from the Elements of Harmony, only the Mane Casts' canon elements work outside of the initial loop an outside looper gets theirs in. While it's entirely possible for a looper to become Exalted, those powers are then generally removed by the admins at the first available opportunity, in part because if they hit a limit break, the character is likely to ascend and become a very, very dangerous MLE.

Rousseau Was Right: Loopers who are villains in baseline tend to reform very often. It helps that they're usually fully aware of where their villainy will take them and don't want to go there, while Good Feels Good. Sakura Syndrome is the opposite of this.

Me's a Crowd: Among the many powers loopers can learn like Shadow Clones, the Misaka glitch can cause this as well, accidentally making an undetermined amount of same, awake loopers during a single loop. While it's not advised that they should get in into fights with their copies when this glitch occurs, since the duplicates end up merging back to the 'real' one once the loop ends and they get all their memories from it, naturally, for many loopers, There Can Only Be One...

Crossover: Fused Loops. What, and how much, is crossed over varies. Also, the premise as a whole qualifies an Ah! My Goddess crossover. Massive Multiplayer Crossover: According to the background lore, backups of universes stored in the Hub (our world) cause the natives to write fiction about those universes. On a more tangible note, the Admins will occasionally dump multiple Anchors into the same loop for the lulz.

0% Approval Rating: All MLEs (Malicious Looping Entities) and many malicious non-loopers such as Umbridge. Hence, when Gendo Ikari starts looping when it was thought he never would, he finds himself at the mercy of an entire multiverse that hates his guts. Most of the loopers have met his baseline self (due to Evangelion being one of the seven oldest looping universes), and most (if not all) of them are not happy to see him looping.

Lesser of Two Evils
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_eec329f5
comment
Lesser of Two Evils: While Admins always strive to make morally upright characters the anchor, sometimes they end up being forced to go with more morally ambiguous characters as the anchor, simply because they're better in comparison to most of the other possible anchor candidates at the time. Pretty much the only reason Ryuk ended up anchoring the Death Note universe is because of this. Not only does being a Shinigami make him immune to Death Notes, he quite frankly doesn't give a crap about a vast majority of the people from his verse, making smaller room for MLE potential. (And considering he's one of the few people from the DN verse who isn't a raging psychopath...) The Tick ended up becoming the anchor of his verse simply because he was the only viable candidate from the universe, and still ended up becoming an MLE. Let that sink in... When the Grim Reaper is the only viable anchor candidate for your universe, you know there's something seriously up there. Granted, he's actually not that bad of a guy, even in comparison to more "normal" looper settings. Doesn't stop Billy and Mandy from eventually becoming Loopers, though. Ironically, Billy is the one who became labeled the MLE of the two, due to being Lethally Stupid. A less morally focused example would be the Nebulous Anchor system in general. It's only used in rare cases (the only commonly known example is with the Attack on Titan universe), and is generally considered low on the "resort to" list. It links several people together as Anchors, which can cause some severe dangers to the stability of the universe in question, but does allow for more efficient looping, and keeps options open in the event that one of the Anchor's dies in baseline.

 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_efacc623
comment
Drama-Preserving Handicap: Characters can have some Loops where their ability to access their subspace pockets or out-of-loop abilities are curtailed or sealed for various reasons (such as a Loop being Read-Only). Loopers can also do this to themselves to keep things from getting too boring, such as Ranma, one of the Original Seven, going a whole Loop using only one discipline of martial arts or only one move (which, technically, qualifies for the former). Loops that involuntarily lock down a loopers abilities are generally not fun for the Looper in question, which is why such Loops are sometimes used as punishments for having crashed a Loop.

Impossible Thief
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_f0085dbc

Impossible Thief: A few. The Trix from Winx Club are this even without being Loopers, having devised a way to steal the Dragonfire, a power that in their canon is impossible to do so (except they did it in canon, something that everyone and everything else who tried failed to do so). Too bad there're better impossible thieves around here... Lupin III and his crew. He stole the Dragonfire without magic and made it look easy, everything inside Gate of Babylon and Gilgamesh' armour (that he was wearing) while drunk (they had drunk all of Gilgamesh' wine inside Gate of Babylon before stealing the rest), a kiss from Carmen Sandiego, and what she was wearing under the trenchcoat. Carmen Sandiego. In the Hitler Rants universe she stole Fegelein's antics, Hitler's ability to laugh at Fegelein, his rant for that and for stealing the other rant, the door of his office and his men's ability to chase her; while in a visit to Fate/stay night she decided to top Lupin's previous heist by stealing Gate of Babylon (not the treasures inside, the immaterial Gate of Babylon itself) and Gilgamesh' ability to care for it (then Lupin stole her a kiss and her clothes).

Railroading: Safe-Mode Servers, such as Eiken, railroad loopers onto the canon plot. On a personal level, Setsuna Syndrome is characterized by seeing the events of the baseline (or in some cases, a 'perfect timeline') as sacrosanct and attempting to railroad events to happen like they would in canon. This is usually because the sufferer believes that doing so will end the time loop.

Alternate Self
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_fceae121
comment
Alternate Self: "Looping Twins" usually fall into one or another. They're the same character, but from different continuities that have both started looping. Usually, this setup is used to prevent Dissassociative Loop Identity Disorder from happening, especially if the alternate continuities are are vastly different. Some notable cases are Classic, Legends, and Skylanders Spyro, Taichi Yagami and Taichi 'Tai' Kamiya, and the Thunder Cats, which have mirror twins of nearly all their looping classic and advanced counterparts. Notably Averted in the Yu-Gi-Oh! loops, with the "Legacy Characters" (a.k.a. characters from previous installments who appeared in ARC-V). In this case, Multiple-Choice Past is in full force, as those loopers have two baselines in their heads each, loop into each baseline at a 50/50 rate, and tend to be pretty affected by the disparity; for example, Kite confuses his brother's preferences in food.

Depending on the Writer
 The Infinite Loops / Fan Fic / int_fdc4fab4
comment
Depending on the Writer: This can come up on occasion, particularly with more divisive characters or power levels. Exactly how the mechanics of characters 'Awaking' for the first time in the loops work is a subject many authors of the loops can't seem to agree upon. The only thing set in stone is that they have to be important to the anchor in someway to start looping. Ask any of the authors about specifics though, and one will likely tell you only characters from baseline can loop, while another will say characters that originate from variants can loop, while others will say variant originated characters can only loop if soul bounded to the anchor, while others say they have to be soul bounded to an artifact that they can stuff in their subspace pocket to survive the loop transition, while others say that it's impossible because subspace pockets can't hold sentient creatures, even if they're in a non-sentient object like a Pokeball... And then there are people who say pretty much the only qualification is how popular they are with the readers, and if people/the authors care about them enough to do so. Of course, there's also character interpretations and such. One writer may write an arc to show that a character has some rather deep Hidden Depths... while another can write an arc shortly after that has them extremely Flanderized for the sake of comedy. Both can be true, also, given the nature of the Loops being a massive Time Abyss.
