* BreakoutCharacter: From being just a playable character with a barebones story in ''Tournament'' to a final boss and leader in ''2003/2004'' to an important character in ''Championship 2'' to a main storyliner (which was meant to be playable) in ''III''. How much of this was because he was the first face the player could choice back in the first ''Tournament'' is left to anyone's guess.



* FinalBoss: In ''2003'' and ''2004''. In the latter, Thunder Crash must be the best ranked Godlike team.

In the latter, ''2004'', only if Thunder Crash must be is the best ranked Godlike team.team after the gametype ladders.
** In ''Championship 2'' he's the final boss of Gorge's ladder. And the inverse is also true. Also, he and Lauren are the final opponents in Sapphire's ladder.



* BreakoutCharacter: Same deal as Malcolm: playable character with barebones story in ''Tournament'', final sub-boss in ''2003'', leader of his own team in ''2004''.



* DemotedToExtra: After ''2003'' he led the mid-tier Iron Guard team in ''2004'' and was playable in ''Championship 2'' as an undead, though without any kind of storyline importance (at least in the Ascension Rites; he gets his own ladder, though). ''III'' doesn't feature him in any form.
* FinalBoss: Of Lauren's ladder in ''Championship 2''.



* BreakoutCharacter: Same deal as with Malcolm and Brock: barebones story and playable in ''Tournament'', sub-boss in ''2003'', co-leader of Iron Guard with Brock in ''2004'', leader of the Iron Guard faction (and unlockable) in ''III'' and playable with storyline influence in ''Championship 2''.

!Brock

\n!Brock[[/folder]]

[[folder:Brock]]



-> Malcolm's most trusted ally, he led the Iron Guard team alongside his girlfriend Lauren. He's defined as both a [[TheCasanova ladies man]] and a [[HotBlooded hothead]] with shades of BadassBookworm. It's rumoured that he [[DeceptiveDisciple killed his mentor]], but that his father [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney bribed the authorities]].

-> He was hired, alongside the original Iron Guard team, by the illegal weapons seller Jihan Nyhn, as their bodyguards. Nyhn had plenty of arenas which the team used for their personal training. After Nyhn's death, the team found a way to vent their bloodlust in the Tournament.

-> Brock and Lauren joined forces with then-champion Malcolm for the 2302 tournament (''Unreal Tournament 2003'') but lost the final match against Gorge and his band of Juggernauts. Infighting and recrimination made the team to split-up, with Brock and Lauren returning to lead a reformed Iron Guard. It is unknown if the team succeeded in that Tournament.

-> In the off-season, (''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII''[[note]]although this was never referred to as in any section of this game, but it was mentioned in ''VideoGame/UnrealChampionship2TheLiandriConflict''[[/note]]) he tried to ambush Gorge because of Malcolm's dethroning. Gorge easily killed him, and Lauren committed suicide shortly after. Both were brought back by both Liandri and Phayder corporations via the expensive Necrification process. Brock lost all of his memories, thus making him a remorseless killing machine.

\n!!Xan Kriegor[[/folder]]

[[folder:Loque]]
-> '''Appearances''': ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament'', ''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII''

Loque is a suspected Phayder captured snooping around the Io Directorship buildings. The Phayder have become more active as of late and are believed to be responsible for at least 6 tac-nuke bombings against NEG installations in the past month.
Loque is Phayder Master for the Necris Black Legion. a Dark Chaplain, responsible for maintaining the morale of the group.

Originally a customizable practice-session bot and a Deathmatch ladder opponent, Loque is a Phayder assassin who was put in the Tournament after the NEG captured him, under suspections of planting 6 TAC-Nuke bombs.

He returns in Unreal Tournament III, leading the Necris army which invaded Taryd, and is the first Necris opponent the player fights against (in Act III: The Liandri Conflict) if the right choices are made.
[[hardline]]
* AscendedExtra: From a customizable practice-session bot in ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament'' to a full-fledged character in ''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII''.
* BreakoutCharacter: First he was given his own match in the ladder of the GameOfTheYearEdition (beforehand, he shared a match with other 5 fighters in the retail version, the patched retail version doesn't feature him at all). Then, when '''III''' featured the Necris as the primary bad guys, he returned as one of the toughest opponents in the campaign and the first Necris you fight against, if you follow the right path.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: In the first UT, as a default practice session customizable character, he gets his accuracy set at maximum, meaning that any shot he fires, at least with hitscan weapons, '''will''' hit.

* RubberBandAI: The final fight use this, the better you do, the more "skilled" he becomes. Considering that, in an FPS, [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard the computer has the ultimate advantage]], this can make things very difficult.
