** Heck before the reboot, practically every bad thing could be traced back them in some fashion and a good chuck of the planet's populace are not fans of them due to their indifference and handling of matters.

Knuckles's biological father and member of the Brotherhood of Guardians. When he had a nightmarish vision about his then unborn son dying in battle against a horrible threat, he consulted his grandfather Athair and was advised to prepare. Applying genetic experiments to himself for Knuckles to inherit, and exposing Knuckles's egg to Chaos energy tapped from Angel Island's own emerald, Locke sought to give Knuckles the power to protect his people. However this, along with the traditional Guardian training, caused his wife to divorce him. After faking his death in front of Knuckles when the latter was 10, Locke watched over his son from inside Haven, the stronghold of the Brotherhood of Guardians. Locke ultimately died to save his son from Dr. Finitevus' schemes.

* AllMenArePerverts: Manik was definitely one before the time rewrite.


Added DiffLines:

* DirtyKid: Manik had a (mostly) g-rated pervert streak before the time rewrite.


* AlienNonInterferenceClause: After a disastrous attempt at saving a species resulting in its extinction, the BEM have adopted this mindset though it is contested within their ranks.

* [[BarefootCartoonAnimal Barefoot Cartoon Alien]]: Apparently the BEMS DoNotLikeShoes.



A BEM scientist with a focus on roboticization. She discovered a society, on the planet Biotex, many years ago that had turned themselves robotic. Her well-intentioned but naive attempts to reverse the process lead to the species extinction and since then her attempts to correct her mistakes have had mixed results.

Added DiffLines:

** Dr. Finitevus convinced him to leave Angel Island under his protection to search for his ancestors, kicking off a series of events that led to the doctor brainwashing Knuckles into becoming the new Enerjak and Locke sacrificing his life to free him.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilCounterpart: To Knuckles, much more than his Moebius Counterpart; most notably to Knuckles time as Enerjak. When Prime Knuckles became Enerjak he was mind-controlled but still his Enerjak almost had a nobility to him as he tried to save his people and the Dark Legion (for better or worse). Dark Knuckles has a selfishness to his beliefs and the future he wants to form is born from that self righteous desire rather than Prime Knuckles Enerjak's warped but genuine one.


* BaldWomen: The BEM are all hairless green humanoid aliens including the women.

Added DiffLines:

* OneGenderRace: All BEM are female.


* DependingOnTheWriter: Though many characters were affected by the change in writers having different directions for them, Locke's was pretty distinct. Though a lot of Locke's fundamental traits were the same, the way he approached his duties and Knuckles took on a harsher tone when Flynn took over from Penders. Locke's OmniscentMoralityLicense was criticized much more and gave him an almost antagonistic position to Knuckles and the heroes.

Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: As with the normal Shadow, he loved Maria, and as King he seemingly deified her. A large angelic statue of her is seen being worshiped, and characters swear by her as they would a religious figure.


* AbusiveParents: He meant well, and admitted his regrets about what he did.
* BreakThemByTalking: In ''Enerjak Reborn'' Julie Su and Archimedes call Locke out on his seeming hatred for Knuckles. When he tries to explain that he doesn't hate Knuckles but can't ignore the danger he's become, Archimedes flat out tells him that Knuckles has become ''exactly'' what they were making him into with their training and Locke's experiments, and the real blame for all this lies with them. Julie Su and Archimedes leave to go Sonic and "the guardian we love enough to rescue" while Locke stews over what he's done

Added DiffLines:

* ParentsAsPeople: He meant well, but Locke manipulated Knuckles from birth to fulfill a prophecy, took him from his mother, and pretended to die so Knuckles could fulfill his role as Guardian. Even after that, it's clear that he sees Knuckles as the Guardian foremost and his son second. Locke admits to regretting much of his actions and even though he felt what he did was for the greater good he regrets having treated his son that way.


* GodIsDead: They had a rather flashy death sequence.

to:

* GodIsDead: They had a rather flashy death sequence.Mammoth Mogul wounds them and though they are dying they still work to keep him trapped. Mogul then completes his long game gambit to retrieve the Sword of Acorns and blows them to pieces.

Added DiffLines:

* TheFaceless: After Kage discovered his betrayal he did "something" to Harry that was incredibly painful and disfiguring. The audience never really sees his face after that, he wears a hood and his face is in shadow. Only his snout is visible and a scar can be seen running down it; the wrappings on his hands are implied to be bandages for his wounds.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalBadass: While his power level is largely the same as a villain, Chaos never really did anything after his HeelFaceTurn in the games. Here, he comes back as an ally and he's still quite powerful. Notably when the planet breaks apart for the ''Unleashed'' adaptation, Chaos was added and it's through his power that the oceans don't drain.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Harry is cynical and jaded but never malicious. His debut was him happening upon two strangers (Charmy and Mellow) and rushing them to the hospital when they took ill.
