* TheAce: His Codex entry and various comments reveal that he was born a "prodigy", and was implied to be one of many individuals to be considered such by the ancient Alicorns of yore. As the Alicorn god of [[PsychicPowers Psionics]], he's an incredibly powerful psychic whose mind couldn't be matched by even the mightiest of Alicorns. He's also a peerless warrior and leader, and a genius whose creations were so advanced and complex taht other civilizations and societies can only make crude replicas of said creations. His empires were also far more magically and technologically advanced than even the empires/kingdoms/realms ruled by other Alicorns. Given how deities in general age in the Codexverse, Golden Scepter being a prodigy also factors into the speed of his physical and magical growth, making him grow faster than normal divines. However, it's [[BrokenAce deconstructed]] in that ''[[ForeverWar ten Ages]]'' of fighting [[SatanicArchetype Morning Star]] during the "Twilight of the Alicorns" conflict and losing much of his people in the process gave him a lot of traumas that brought out many of his worst traits during the Imperium era, which would deeply affect his judgement. After a series of terrible mistakes, he was gravely wounded after one of his own generals betrayed him and launched a coup, and had to be [[KingInTheMountain sealed away]] to save his life... until he would be found and healed in the Second Age by Luminiferous and Queen Dazzleglow. Then the trope is reconstructed when Luminiferous and Dazzleglow's positive influence kicked off off a long, gradual process of CharacterDevelopment and emotional/mental recovery that would turn Golden Scepter into a truly benevolent ruler and a much kinder stallion.

** His Generals, meanwhile, are also based on the Primarchs, though in their case it's implied that they're mortal yet talented and charismatic Ponies who were employed by him, instead of being created by him. It's also implied the Generals are based on the Primarchs' more toxic and dysfunctional traits.

[[spoiler:Only one person, Dr. Solar, the creator of the original Corona, managed to figure it out on his own, something that surprised Golden Scepter greatly. To this day, he admits that he ''still'' doesn't know how Dr. Solar saw through his disguise]].



** Being a good father towards ''all'' of his nineteen demi-divine sons, regardless of the difficulties he would experience in raising them, would eventually lead to them Ascending to demi-Alicornhood and becoming powerful and highly-respected heroes in their own right.

** Though unconfirmed in-universe, it's rumored that his efforts in atonement for his sins warranted a personal visit from Canteros, the god of Requited Love and Reconciliation and Amareros' firstborn son. Canteros congratulated Golden Scepter for breaking free from the Alicorns' mistakes and redeeming himself instead of going into complete seclusion as his people had done after their fall, becoming both a loving father and truly benevolent ruler in the end.
* KingIncognito: A canonized Codexverse quote reveals that he spent much of the Second Age traveling in the guise of [[GodInHumanForm a mortal Earth pony]], possibly due to the extremely low levels of magic during that Age, and wanting to observe mortal Ponykind's examples and achievements unnoticed.

** After finding and restoring King Ibrida, the Draconequus god of Hybrids, from stasis, he fully accepted responsibility for the Imperium of Ponykind's destruction of the Halfblood Empire - even if he was in stasis himself when it happened - and apologized to Ibrida for it. And when Ibrida showed reluctance over founding another kingdom due to fear of his own flaws, Golden Scepter encouraged him to do it anyway, citing Ibrida's desire to create a safe haven for those who want to flee tribal/racial persecution. Not only did Ibrida forgive Golden Scepter for his actions (which surprised him), but he also trusted the Alicorn Emperor with information on Hybrid Haven's true location after he established it, something that also surprised him but has motivated him to maintain Ibrida's trust in him.

[[spoiler:The Void Sovereign was responsible for ending the Second Age, and he's so dangerous that Dazzleglow wants to help mortal/divine sapientkind become strong enough to protect the planet Equus from him. However, there's also the risk of sending everyone into an existential panic if they were to find out that they're on a metaphorical timer, with something waiting to devour them all, hence why the Church of the Stars had to keep the Void Sovereign's existence a secret. Golden Scepter was initially worried about the secrecy, as he had done the same thing during the Imperium eraand had it backfire spectacularly in his face, but eventually came around to it and sees the secrecy as a "necessary evil]].

** While visiting the Bogolenya Deer Pantheon, he found Belyolen and Temnobog heatedly arguing with their father, High King Irminsul, who was also visiting. The horrible things Irminsul said about Temnobog and the non-Deer/hybrid Bogolenya deities ''enraged'' Golden Scepter to the point where he revealed his true divine form, and confronted the High King in front of everyone. What followed next was a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech dressing-down]] so ''vicious'' that Irminsul became deeply terrified of Golden Scepter and now stays far away from the Bogolenya Deer Pantheon on the off-chance that the Alicorn Emperor might be there if he decides to visit again.

The possibility of incurring Golden Scepter's wrath again is brought up by Belyolen when he prevented his father and the Elternteil Deer Pantheon from punishing Blue Suede Heartstrings for supposedly "stealing" away their mortal Alvslog Deer subjects; because Blue is friends with Prince Stoltur Skjöldur, hurting him would invite the rage of Temnobog's entire family, and Golden Scepter will go after the Elternteil Deer Pantheon if one of ''his'' friends were hurt. This successfully gets Irminsul and the other Elternteil Deer deities to back off and leave Blue alone.



* PersonOfMassDestruction: As Alicorns are known for being powerful {{Physical God}}s, it's a given for him. However, a few entries describe him as an ancient god who boasts ''incredible'' power. Because he embodies Psionics, he has far-reaching powers like telepathy and telekinesis; he can [[EmotionBomb psychically affect]] large groups of people with his [[TheEmpath empathy]] (as a group of Pony Autorists learned the hard way), and Prince Crimson Star's entry notes that he's capable of minor [[RealityWarper reality-warping]]. In addition, it's rumored that even before Known History, even the mightiest of Alicornkind couldn't match his potent mind. He's also a powerful [[PlayingWithFire fire mage]] who can [[HolyHandGrenade purify and destroy corrupt influences with his fires]], which combined with his extraordinary combat skills can make him a ''nightmare'' for demonic individuals and even Fallen deities. Because of this, any attempt to pick a fight with him would almost always end with a CurbStompBattle. However, it's stated in his own entry that he often takes the form of a rather normal-looking Alicorn when among mortals, and the truth is that, like Queen Mzazi and Isati, he's a benevolent HumanoidAbomination who is ''much'' more powerful in his true form.

Added DiffLines:

* PrecisionFStrike: He normally doesn't swear, but he has many... ''colorful'' opinions on his fallen former home, the Alicorn Civilization. As it had been an extremely successful civilization before it fell into incredible levels of arrogance, complacency, corruption, and other depravities, his feelings are understandable.
--> '''Emperor Golden Scepter:''' And then, as the little ponies say... the Alicorns and their allies '''''fucked''''' everything up. LITERALLY.

** Before the "[[{{Gotterdammerung}} Twilight of the Alicorns]]", Golden Scepter was a highly beloved ruler whose empire was among the most successful, and was magically and technologically advanced even by the Alicorns' standards. When Morning Star fell and turned traitor, Golden Scepter fought him and protected the innocent from the war for ''ten Ages''. After the war ended, he refused to go in complete seclusion with the survivors of his people, instead opting to look for survivors and help them rebuild. Golden Scepter notes that the norm of Alicorn rulers was to behave in a regal, stoic, and aloof manner, which gives the image of a wise and benevolent ruler, but then admits that such behavior is really toxic and encouraged the superior attitudes that led to the downfall of their civilization in the first place.
** During the Imperium era, however, his traumas would warp his good intentions until he became little more than a divine tyrant, using good intentions to justify his terrible actions. It got to the point where one of his generals, Aurum Lupus, staged a coup against him to end his reign, in which Golden Scepter was gravely injured and had to be put in stasis so he could be healed later. Unfortunately, his influence, combined with his absence, caused the Imperium of Ponykind to forget about him and turn into a WretchedHive that was eventually destroyed.
** Following his reemergence in the Second Age, he followed Luminiferous's advice to redeem himself and did just that by helping people when they needed it, and protecting and hiding them away during great crises such as the "Void Aeon" event. By the time the Fourth Age came around, he had settled down, had a family, and established the much smaller yet still successful and thriving Terran Empire. Since then, he became a truly benevolent ruler unlike most of his Alicorn peers, and has done things such as hunt down members of the Alicorn Ascendancy, and opposing {{Knight Templar}}s, racists, and [[EvilReactionary reactionaries]]. In a notable incident, he also harshly punished the leader of a Pony Autorist group, while letting those who [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone genuinely regretted their actions]] leave his empire with a gentle yet firm warning. When Prince Blazing Hoof confronted him about it, Golden Scepter would explain that the Autorists living with their own guilt is punishment enough, and reacting harshly would only beget more hatred.

destroyed. A canonized Codexverse drabble reveals that [[spoiler:he went by the name of "Auriolus Scaeptrum" up to the Imperium era. However, he became so disgusted with the horrible things he had done under that name that he came to see it as everything wrong with himself and the Alicorn Civilization, and readopted his birth name as Golden Scepter after throwing his Alicorn name away]].

Mercy's entry notes that Golden Scepter also vouched for her when his subjects voiced distrust towards the sentient sword, citing both Mercy's potential as a "true" weapon of Justice and an averted [[{{Seers}} future vision]] regarding her corruption as the main reasons why he accepted her into his family.



** After learning from his eighth son, Prince Crimson Star that [[AdultFear a group of Fallen deities and their worshipers tried engineering the downfall of his family]] in the "Temptation Unbound" conflict, Golden Scepter was so ''furious'' that he [[OneWingedAngel revealed his true form as an ancient, six-winged Alicorn god]]. When said deities arrogantly claimed that there's nothing he could do to change his sons' fate, he points out that anyone who believes in YouCantFightFate are too assured and lazy to do anything meaningful, and makes it ''quite clear'' that he will not let anyone harm his sons, or his "little ponies and their friends".

* {{Seers}}: Played straight and inverted; his entry describes him as a powerful clairvoyant who has both precognition and retrocognition, allowing him to see the respective futures and pasts of sapient creatures, including ponies. Notably, he foresaw the Alicorn Sparkling Wing as the beloved ruler of his own kingdom, which motivated him to try teach him in leadership.

** He also saw one potential future where [[TalkingWeapon Mercy]] was corrupted into a demonic weapon after her first wielder, Silver Bane the Dark Hunter, gave into his vampiric side and became a hateful, self-loathing monster. The fact that Mercy was given to his sixteenth son, Prince Red Blade, by a reformed and repentant Silver Bane with no signs of malice or demonic taint, was proof in Golden Scepter's eyes that Mercy had the potential to become a true weapon of Justice and Benevolence. It's noted that his fifteenth son, Prince Night Shade, had the same vision, which presumably motivated him to try save and redeem Silver Bane in the first place.



* TallDarkAndHandsome: He's described as being a very tall and muscular Alicorn with a black mane and tail, and according to his friend, Temnobog, he's "INCREDIBLY handsome". He was also attractive enough that, before the "Twilight of the Alicorns" happened, he gained (and slept with) multiple male and female partners, something that he would later regret.



* TautologicalTemplar: Deconstructed and played for drama. Psychological trauma from the "Twilight of the Alicorns" conflict, his [[LonelyAtTheTop loneliness from being the only Alicorn in the outside world at the time]], and his [[WhoWantsToLiveForever immortality]] would prove to be a disastrous combination that warped Golden Scepter's altruism and good intentions, and deeply affected his judgement to the point he believed that everything he did, including his most horrific actions, were ultimately for the good of Ponykind, so therefore he's always right. This behavior (among other things) would ultimately set things up for the "Aurum Apostasy" conflict instigated by General Aurum Lupus when he launched a coup, seeing his ruler as a divine tyrant that needed to be deposed of. And after Golden Scepter was gravely wounded and put in stasis, the Imperium of Ponykind would later become an entire civilization of Tautological Templars because of his influence, leading to its collapse and destruction at the hooves of those who wanted to end its threat to Equus. After he was found and healed in the Second Age by Luminiferous and Dazzleglow in the Second Age, he would realize how much of a "monster" he had been and become TheAtoner to make up for his crimes by [[WalkingTheEarth wandering all over Equus, learning from the examples made by mortals and divines]].

* {{Telepathy}}: Implied, as one of his powers described in his entry is far-reaching telepathy. A few of his sons would inherit this power from him, such as Fanged Paw, Crimson Star, and Written Word.



* TemptingFate: Hilariously, during his stay in the Bogolenya Deer pantheon, he nearly got exposed to puns by Phykti, the Bogolenya Deer goddess of Cruelty and Despair, [[FishOutOfTemporalWater after he asked Yarost what puns are]]. Yarost, considering puns a FateWorseThanDeath, warned him to leave as fast as he can before Phykti hears him. [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere He heeds the advice]], leaving Phykti rather disappointed that she didn't get to introduce the divine Emperor to puns.

* TookALevelInJerkass: Justified and deconstructed. Before the Alicorns' ruination, he used to be a powerful and beloved ruler of his own empire. But fighting Morning Star and his Fallen faction for ''ten Ages'' and losing most of his loved ones in the war left him so traumatized that during the Imperium era, with no one to help him properly deal with his traumas, his good intentions were gradually warped by his experiences and loneliness, essentially turning him into a well-meaning yet tyrannical god whose actions would lead to one of his generals raising a coup against him. After he was gravely wounded and put in stasis, the Imperium of Ponykind would become a WretchedHive that took after him, and was ultimately destroyed by more benevolent kingdoms and civilizations to end its threat. However, it would be reconstructed - after he was unearthed, revived, and healed in the Second Age, certain benevolent individuals would inspire him to [[WalkingTheEarth wander all over Equus]], ultimately [[TookALevelInKindness becoming much kinder]]. He would also seek out the young Mentálne for psychiatric help on Luminiferous's suggestion, which would finally resolve his untreated PTSD.

'''Emperor Golden Scepter:''' ..I suppose you are right, Dark One. Even I was blind to it, as hard as I tried... Perhaps... perhaps Morning Star's betrayal and the destruction of my home were the best things that ever happened to the Alicorns, and me as well.
** The Imperium of Ponykind was rumored (and speculated) to have covered almost the entirety of Equus, or even spread to other planets across the stars. However, as it continued to expand, it began to stagnate, largely due to Golden Scepter's traumas and harsh methods in ruling, as well as the complacency his Pony subjects would experience due to living in a vastly successful and expansionist empire. Golden Scepter's absence after the "Aurum Apostasy" conflict due to injuries and being put into a magical stasis caused his Pony subjects to use him as their excuse to continue their xenophobic, vicious, and fanatical ways, leading to its end at the hands of more benevolent kingdoms, empires, and organizations.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Deconstructed. Much like the [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Emperor of Mankind]], Golden Scepter would end up doing horrible things for the sake of mortal Ponykind itself during the Imperium era, including committing genocide against non-Pony races under the guise of military campaigns, and getting rid of religion itself by torching cities to the ground for worshiping him. It's noted in his entry that Golden Scepter's good intentions were gradually warped by a disastrous combination of [[ShellShockedVeteran war-related PTSD]], loneliness, and [[WhoWantsToLiveForever his own immortality]], and eventually, he would end up alienating and disgusting even his closest allies to the point where one of his Generals, Aurum Lupus, saw him as a divine tyrant and kick-started the "Aurum Apostasy" conflict for this reason, ultimately leading to Golden Scepter being wounded and sealed away in stasis. And because of his influence, the Imperium of Ponykind degenerated into a WretchedHive full of xenophobic, cruel, and paranoid extremists before it was destroyed by benevolent forces. It was after he was found, revived, and healed in the Second Age that Golden Scepter realized how monstrous he had become, and thanks to benevolent individuals such as Dazzleglow and Luminiferous, he would become TheAtoner and [[WalkingTheEarth traveled all over Equus]] to learn from the examples set by both mortals and divines. By the time the Fourth Age rolled in, he had become a truly benevolent ruler as well as the loving father of nineteen demi-divine sons, and because of his experiences, he is a bitter enemy of other extremists such as the Poenan pantheon and the Clovenists, seeing them as no better than he had acted before despite their good intentions. Notably, when Poena and her followers tried attacking him in response to him publicly decrying their methods, he would [[CurbStompBattle swiftly and utterly defeat them all]], showing just how far he had come.

** When he found and restored King Ibrida, the Draconequus god of Hybrids, Acceptance, and Love, from stasis, Golden Scepter explained to him who was really responsible for the destruction of the now-fallen Halfblood Empire. He had the option of pinning the blame on one of his subordinates, who ordered the attacks as he himself was put in stasis following the "Aurum Apostasy" conflict. However, as he wanted to fully atone for his sins, Golden Scepter instead chose to accept responsibility for causing the destruction, even indirectly. This led to Ibrida forgiving him, much to his surprise.

* TheAce: His Codex entry and various comments reveal that he was born a "prodigy", and was implied to be one of many individuals to be considered such by the ancient Alicorns of yore. As the Alicorn god of [[PsychicPowers Psionics]], he's an incredibly powerful psychic whose mind couldn't be matched by even the mightiest of Alicorns. He's also a peerless warrior and leader, and a genius whose creations were so advanced and complex taht other civilizations and societies can only make crude replicas of said creations. His empires were also far more magically and technologically advanced than even the empires/kingdoms/realms ruled by other Alicorns.

However, it's [[BrokenAce deconstructed]] in that ''ten Ages'' of fighting [[SatanicArchetype Morning Star]] during the "Twilight of the Alicorns" conflict and losing much of his people in the process gave him a lot of traumas that brought out many of his worst traits during the Imperium era, which would deeply affect his judgement. After a series of terrible mistakes, he was gravely wounded after one of his own generals betrayed him and launched a coup, and had to be [[KingInTheMountain sealed away]] to save his life... until he would be found and healed in the Second Age by Luminiferous and Queen Dazzleglow. Then the trope is reconstructed when Luminiferous and Dazzleglow's positive influence kicked off off a long, gradual process of CharacterDevelopment and emotional/mental recovery that would turn Golden Scepter into a truly benevolent ruler and a much kinder stallion.

* MysteriousPast: Since he's incredibly ancient, his early life remains a mystery - it is speculated in-universe that he was a child of an extremely ancient god, [[MergerOfSouls the collective reincarnation of various mages, wizards, and sorcerers]] according to [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 some tabletop game writers]] ([[TakeThat which apparently made Golden Scepter laugh and praise the writers' creativity]]), a member of a group of undying immortals who acquired godhood and great powers, [[DeityOfHumanOrigin or simply an Ascended mortal]]. Another theory is that he's the "Parent Deity" of mortal Ponykind, just like how Equus is the "Parent Deity" of all Equine races, including the Alicorns who became the greatest of his Equine children. This would make Equus the [[DivineParentage biological father]] of Golden Scepter; however, the latter has stated that his domain is likely figurative as Ponykind existed long before he did... though he's not too sure himself.
