• 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.

File:Invasion america.jpg

Created by Steven Spielberg, this prime-time animated TV drama, produced by DreamWorks, was an Animesque Miniseries about aliens invading America. It wasn't particularly popular with audiences. Invasion America was created primarily to cash in on the late-1990s paranormal craze that The X-Files created.

The story of Invasion America begins in the early 1980s with Cale-Oosha, the ruler of Tyrus, looking into his uncle's project with Earth, believing it to be a plan to establish peaceful contact with humanity. However, his uncle, The Dragit, claims that their dying planet ought to invade Earth, conquer the bellicose humans, and take hold of its resources. Cale refuses and a civil war breaks out.

Cale and his bodyguard/trainer/trusted friend Rafe escape to the Utah desert where Cale is rescued by Rita Carter, a human woman, who guides the Tyrusians through human living and becomes a Love Interest for Cale. After a few years of hiding on Earth, Cale returns to Tyrus to lead the loyalist forces (the Ooshati) that have organized, leaving Rita and their young son, David, under Rafe's protection.

In the present day, when the Dragit finally finds the family, he is determined to kill them, and David Carter's teenage life is thrown into a devastating adventure of stopping the Dragit, losing and gaining friends, and finding out just who he is.

Invasion America provides examples of:


 David: Mom, talk to me. He's been gone a long time. Who was he anyway? Why do you keep him such a mystery?

  • Treacherous Advisor: Gordon is this for the President of the U.S.
  • Tricked-Out Gloves: The Exotar, a silvery glove that's a symbol of the Oosha's sovereignty and enables the wearer to better utilize their telekinetic abilities. As Simon learns the hard way, it has genetic sensors and will the crush the hand of anyone who tries to wear it that isn't related to the Oosha.
  • Twin Telepathy: Sonia and Simon.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Lomack is from a whole species of these.
  • We Can Rule Together: The Dragit tries this on David.
  • The Woobie: David. Someone needs to give that kid a hug.
