  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A less known Tabletop RPG published in Italy in 1992. It is a modern-day/sci-fi action RPG which was heavily and explicitly inspired by then-famous manga and anime such as Ghost in the Shell and Gundam, and features heroic teenagers fighting extra-dimensional demons.

Internal rivalry killed any following publication.

Tropes used in Ammo include:


  • An Adventurer Is You: The game gives free choice of skills, and a random background specialization (often not random if the Director is friendly). Most of these are aimed either to inflict lot of damage in a short time, or to research clues and resources.
  • Black Mage: Almost every player character that knows magic will know an offensive spell (Air, Water, Earth or Fire). The fifth option is Life, that while loved by the team, is serious crap for the character himself. ALL demons that know magic will spam Black Magic like rain at a funeral.
  • Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors: When it comes to demons with of elemental nature, Fire beats Water and Air beats Earth, but the opposite is also true.
  • Glass Cannon: True for experienced characters that use magic, as an high level offensive spell can reduce a tank to ashes in a matter of seconds, but prevents the caster to wear any powered armor (99% of the non-powered armor are just paper-mache). Averted for unexperienced humans caster, that while being "Glass", lacks heavily the "Cannon" qualification. More "Glass Pistols".
  • Squishy Wizard: All human casters are this, as powered armor prevents casting, and not powered armor are just a little more than a sweater in a gunfire. Demon casters have stats that doubles as a powered armor, so avoid the trope.
  • Tokyo Is the Center of the Universe: Kyoto, actually.
  • White Mage: A very rare character choice, at least at startup. Healing is very limited in efficiency (the caster must choice ONE stat that he knows how to heal, over 15 possible), and every heal reduced temporanely the caster Magic stat by one... on a max value of 3 (for humans). Worth to mention that starting as a White Mage means no offensive magic until you learn some?
