Union may refer to:
Union is a composite being, made up of all the Dark Gods except for Adva and Majeston Zelia, similar to the Uni-Mind of the Eternals. Passing her power and control through Adva's portals, all the Dark Gods are drawn from out of their armor, bodies and minds, into an enormous form.
Star Wars: Union was a four-issue comic series, written by Michael A. Stackpole, published between November 1999 and August 2000. The series' plot focused on the marriage of Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade.
When Luke Skywalker, the New Republic's greatest hero and sole Jedi Master, decides to marry Mara Jade, the woman who was once the Emperor's personal assassin, you can be sure that hands both Imperial and New Republican will be raised to stop the marriage—at any cost! Written by acclaimed Star Wars novelist Michael Stackpole (X-Wing: Rogue Squadron; I, Jedi) and illustrated with photographic realism by Robert Teranishi, Union spotlights a monumental event in the Star Wars timeline that bridges the classic Star Wars trilogy to its boundless future a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away!

As Unicron stands ready to attack Cybertron, the Autobots and Decepticons fight back. Galvatron takes extra time to deal with the issue of Thrust's betrayal of the rest of his species.
|Transformers: Armada > Episode 50|
|Previous episode||Next episode|
Unicron stands, his body surrounded by energy, destroying any ships that come close to him. While Galvatron orders his forces to retreat to a safe distance, Thrust sits on Unicron's shoulder, laughing at the feeble efforts to defeat his new god.
The Autobots and Decepticons try to determine how their armies could possibly defeat Unicron. Unicron suddenly takes action and prepares to attack the abandoned planetside. Hot Shot and Wheeljack lead some fighter planes, hoping to interrupt Unicron. While the fighters can't harm Unicron, they focus on Thrust.
The Cybertronian army's scanners finally detect a weak point on Unicron's neck. A plan is formed, giving Galvatron the opportunity to personally confront Thrust. Thrust stands on Unicron's shoulder, and notices that Unicron is making no responses to any advisement - he questions that perhaps the web of lies he had constructed might have been a mistake, be assured himself that Unicron is the right way. At this point, his sanity is clearly in question.
Optimus and Galvatron realize that the key to defeating Unicron lies within the Mini-Cons inside of Unicron. At the same time, the kids come to a similar conclusion. Before the plans are put into action, Unicron fires his massive energy cannon, blasting a very, very large portion out of Cybertron's landscape. Before Unicron fires again, Optimus and Galvatron commence their own attack, leaving their armies under the command of Hot Shot. The final war on Unicron begins, the Hydra Cannon positioned to use its force field to block the blast that could tear another chunk out of Cybertron.
Galvatron confronts Thrust. Thrust gloats, proclaiming the destruction of Cybertron is inevitable. But seconds after professing his desire to see Galvatron destroyed, Thrust bounces into a quickly closing crack in Unicron's armor. Squeezed, he begs Galvatron for help, before he is inevitably popped like a pathetic zit.
The Hydra Cannon's shields give up, letting Unicron's powerful blast head towards Cybertron's core, but before it makes contact, the glowing green Mini-Cons rush to block the shot. Before Unicron closes the panels that cover his cannon, Optimus and Galvatron sneak inside.
The Street Action Team announce they plan on going inside of Unicron too. The kids and Red Alert decide they're going along to help. The Mini-Cons outside combine into a massive green mirror of Unicron, who protects the kids long enough to sneak through the underground warp gate, but while the kids sneak through the gate in time, Red Alert is left buried in rubble.
With Optimus and Galvatron at Unicron's core, the kids and the Street Action Team are elsewhere in Unicron. Unicron battles the Mini-Con mirror of himself, while a combined army of Autobots and Decepticons engage in one final assault.
Optimus Prime: Once we get inside Unicron, we're going to rescue all the Mini-Cons.
Fred: Ahh, you're the greatest!
Fred: uhh.. and.. you're really the greatest too, Galvatron.
Galvatron: HA HA HA, ahh, that's what I like to hear!
Fred: Unicron is going to blast us! I don't want to get blasted on an empty stomach!
Galvatron: You'll pay for this betrayal, Thrust. I'm angry. And do you remember how I get when I'm angry?
Thrust: You don't scare me anymore, Galvatron. Unlike you, I've learned to choose my allies wisely. You're nothing but a bad joke. What were you thinking, joining forces with Optimus Prime and the Autobots? He's your enemy, remember? Did you expect me to grovel in front of you? Neah, not likely. I have no need for you, all we did was fight one meaningless battle after another. What was the point? You wanted to control the Mini-Cons, and the universe. But, we know that will never happen now, you lost control of the Decepticons, so what kind of leader does that make you if you can't manage your own kind? A pretty poor one if you ask me. Unicron is completely different, he's enormous, and totally invincible. And with someone like me to advise him on issues of importance, like which planets to devour, and whose solar system to enslave, I see no reason why we shouldn't have a successful partnership.
Galvatron: You always did like the sound of your own voice.
Thrust: I can't wait until Unicron blasts you to pieces, and I scatter your dust all over the universe! Ahahah!
*fwosh* *dung* *bonk*
Thrust: Galvatron, I didn't mean what I said! Please, save me, please!
Galvatron: I have to go meet Optimus Prime. We're going inside Unicron, so I'll give you two choices. Either I shoot you here and now... (Thrust whimpers) ...or you free yourself and get out on your own. And if you do, there will be nowhere to hide.
Thrust: Galvatron, you can't just leave me here, please...
Galvatron: Thrust, if you dare to have dreams of power...
(Thrust screams as his head inflates.)
Galvatron: ...you will be consumed by them.
Tidal Wave: Let's get it on!
Blurr: This is one crazy team.
Union Monsters can be recognized by the fact that, where on an ordinary Effect Monster it would read 'Effect', Union Monsters have 'Union'. Cards such as Dark Necrofear, Kiseitai or Armory Arm act as Equip Spell Cards but do not have the text designating them Union Monsters; the latter of the three can even become a monster again.
Union monsters are a special type of Effect Monster with (Type)/Union in their card text. They can function like an Equip Spell Card, and thus become vulnerable to cards that destroy Spell Cards, such as Mystical Space Typhoon. They equip to the host Monster their text designates and generally grant it additional strength, such as an increase in ATK/DEF. Earlier Union Monsters Destroy themselves to protect the host Monster if it would be destroyed by battle while equipped. More recent Union Monsters, though, such as Heavy Mech Support Platform, Spirit of the Six Samurai and Armored Cybern, also protect the host Monster from any kind of Destruction.
Union Monsters can either Equip or Unequip to the host once per turn with their own Effect, given they are on the field. Additional cards, such as Formation Union and Combination Attack allow them to Equip and Unequip alternatively. Some Union monsters fuse with their hosts, ex V-Tiger Jet and W-Wing Catapult to form VW-Tiger Catapult or Dark Blade and Pitch-Dark Dragon to form Dark Blade the Dragon Knight. The Union Monsters introduced the XYZ Archetype (which would later become the VWXYZ Archetype), which had a new way of using their Fusion Monsters. This unorthodox method involves removing the Fusion Material Monsters from play to Special Summon the Fusion Monster from the Extra Deck (This is not considered a Fusion Summon). Polymerization cannot be used to Fusion Summon these monsters.
After a prolonged absence, Union Monsters will make a comeback in Structure Deck 18: Machiners Command, introducing a number of new Union Monsters, including Machina Gearframe, with the highest ATK of any level 4 or lower Union Monster in the game, and Machina Peacekeeper, who can search another Union Monster out of your deck when destroyed, whether in monster or Equip Card form. While neither grants anything to their equipped monster besides destruction protection, their uses outside of being equip cards are a great asset to decks that incorporate Union Monsters.
