The best way to put it would be, the 40K world was essentially made as a parody, with ridiculous everything dumped in.

Then fanboys made it serious, so all the funny retardation became "cool" fact, and Star Wars has always tried to be a decent story (whether or not is succeeded) and so crossovers need to contradict 40K fluff in order to work.

I mean, you'd think a Gurenn Lagann/ 40K crossover would be better, because then they could take turns one-upping each other in increasingly ludicrous penis-measuring. But yeah...

Darth Enoby Potter Skywalker, used her powers of pure energy to blind the attacking Greyknights. As they howled their horror, writhing on the ground, a pack of giant gorillas with finger weapons shot at her.

But Enoby was ready and she deflected them with her light saber Katanas, Naruto and Sasuke. She did a backflip and killed all the Greyknights and giant gorillas in one move.

>>The cloaks around the Guardian and her taskforce fell just as a devastating mass of firepower was unleashed from thousands of Turbolaser and ion cannon batteries. With such an element of surprise, with such overwhelming firepower at such close range the Strike Cruisers had no chance. The first salvo of combined fire crippled the closest Cruiser and forced the other two to initiate a withdrawal, running even as their void shields failed and their heavy armour melted under the onslaught of sheer superior firepower.

The crippled Cruiser floated in space, shields gone and armoured hull opened up in several places. Her engines had been crippled and her main weapon batteries decimated before they could even lock onto the rising swarm of Gunships and fighters from the surface.

Eh... no, if the fire is being split at 3 ships I can't see the Strike Cruiser being basically destroyed from what I'd assume is 1/3 of the fire power of the fleet. Especially from a single salvo of fire.

Yes a SSD probably could take on and beat a lone Strike Cruiser... but it's not going to one shot it and it's not going to do it without taking a bit of damage.

Also why the hell do the fucking Star Destroyers have cloaks? Is it mentioned in some obscure EU book and was used on like... one Star Destroyer that was probably destroyed in the book?

I'd read this myself but I don't want to give the author another view... also don't want to risk contracting the stupid.

Cloaks aren't used much in the SW universe because they cost from 300k to tens of millions each. Can buy a corvette to a cruiser with that kind of money.

Course, star destroyers cost tens of billions each, so the relative price is negligible but on the other hand the point of a star destroyer is to be seen.

I love how that gif is so horribly out of scale. A star destroyer is 1.6km long, a Retribution class is maybe 10km long. Your .gif makes it look 200km long. The Star Destroyer is still the more effective warship, due to not being a converted merchant vessel crewed by slave gangs and retards, and instead a professionally crewed and designed warship. Hell it probably has more firepower too, unless you listen to those retards at SD.net who claim a Imperial battleship has "Petratons" of firepower in a single lance strike.

I actually read a 40k/Gurren Lagann crossover fic once. They had to severely handicap the TTGL characters to keep them from curbstomping everything.

I mean, when you can summon a giant unstoppable robot that can sling galaxies around like shurikens, simply from SHEER FORCE OF HOT-BLOODED WILL, you can pretty much curbstomp anything else in the Wh40k continuity.

The whole point of Gurren Lagann is that it is IMPOSSIBLE for the character to lose so long as they have the drive to succeed.
