* Opposed by: The House of Pantheon/{{Regret}} (The Red Death), [[Pantheon/{{Love}} Selina Kyle/Catwoman]] (The Drowned), the House of Pantheon/{{Family}} (The Murder Machine)
* Below TheMultiverse rests [[Pantheon/{{Dimensions}} the Dark Multiverse]], a place where whatever can go wrong does. Unstable worlds never meant to exist. [[ComicBook/DarkNightsMetal And when Barbatos emerged]] to conquer the light, he had seven versions of [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]] answer the call. Each represents the Batman's fears and doubts of him, [[ShadowArchetype the dark paths he could have taken]], [[EvilCounterpart the evil in his heart]]. And they want the optimistic universes for themselves.
* Applies to multiple/all the Dark Knights
** With the exception of The Batman Who Laughs, the Dark Knights were confirmed or assumed to be dead. Unfortunately with the Dark Multiverse and Barbatos' ascension, he was able to restore his Dark Knights, who now seek the pantheon to achieve their dreams and desires. As twisted versions of Batman [[CompositeCharacter and]] some of DC's greatest heroes, the GUAG considers them not just a physical threat but an ideological threat as well. However because they are all counterparts of one person, they all find a KryptoniteFactor not just with Nth Metal and the even stronger 10th Metal/Element X(due to their dark matter physiology), but [[NeverTheSelvesShallMeet Funny Valentine's Stand]].
** Already partnered with Barbatos over their love of debasing and corrupting others, Melkor was happy to see the Dark Knights ascend as a twisted mockery of the forces of good. And he's hoping to find twisted versions of his main enemies in the now expanded Dark Multiverse. That said, the Dark Knights don't see anything beyond a possible meal ticket with the Dark Lord of Arda. Griffith seemed more invested as like him they're former heroes turned into villains, usually over falling to despair. He finds it nostalgic.
** Their own sub-house was interested in the various different darker paths that the Dark Knights took. Darquesse and Jeanne d'Arc Alter like comparing notes as they are literal evil versions of a heroic character. However most think they're nuts or don't fit with their own ideals. Exceptions include the Psycho Rangers(an evil team of counterparts, but only the Batman Who Laughs and the Dawnbreaker are evil enough to get along [[CardCarryingVillain with them]]).
** Zamasu was quick to use the Dark Knights as an argument for why HumansAreBastards, despite Barbatos humiliating him upon his visit to the Dark Multiverse. As several terrible villains embody the potential for evil that Batman has, it truly shows how evil mortals are innately, no matter how they try to hide it. [[{{Hypocrite}} Zamasu himself]] [[FallenHero once being a well-intentioned god]] who became darker than any mortal, [[spoiler:and Infinite Zamasu being a nightmare of a new reality worse than the Dark Multiverse]] alludes him, and most don't even bother pointing it out due to seeing Zamasu as a lost cause.
** Lord Drakkon considers the Dark Knights rivals to his plans of conquest, mainly because of how they are versions of a hero twisted to villainy due to personal tragedy and suffering, representing the worst of what they could become. Well, except for The Dawnbreaker. He shares a resentment for the world as a whole, due to Drakkon's jealousy of his heroic counterparts.
** The Imperium of Mankind regards The Devastator as an abominable mutant and perversion of the human form, and The Drowned as much of the same but sea-based. Ironic, given in their own twisted way [[WellIntentionedExtremist they think they're helping humanity]]; by making them nigh-invincible Doomsday monsters and protecting them under the water against metahumans.
** The Murder Machine, given how swiftly he dealt with the criminals in his world and anybody trying to stop him, also finds himself agreeing with Light Yagami's views on justice. Copy X and Jeanne d'arc Alter, fellow villainous counterparts, also seem to respect the Murder Machine due to his efficiency in terms of being a KnightTemplar. The Red Death is appealing to Copy X and Jeanne as well since he wants to make the world better at any cost, and his SuperSpeed makes him very effective. The other Dark Knights are a bit too much for them, however.
** Before you ask, the Grim Knight was considered for entry. However he wasn't part of the original seven as Barbatos didn't see him as evil enough, so that's why he didn't ascend to the pantheon. [[Pantheon/ClothingTheme The Punisher]] is disappointed with this, given [[{{Expy}} the Grim Knight took a lot of notes from him]].
* Applies to The Batman Who Laughs
** On Earth -22, the Joker caused havoc across Gotham, making Batman watch as he re-enacted his parents' death and Jokerizing the orphans. When Batman did what everyone wanted and snapped his neck, it released a neurotoxin that changed his morality to that of the Joker. He ended up killing everyone and joined Barbatos to do it again, embodying the Batman's fear of becoming as bad as him and his inability to end their never-ending feud by just killing the Joker. Amazingly, ''the Joker'' considers him to be '''worse''' than him, and Harley Quinn was both infuriated that he killed the Joker of his world, and finds him too scary for her. Kefka was more OK with The Batman Who Laughs, as he's an insane [[PracticallyJoker Joker-like villain]] who's madness made him an OmnicidalManiac.
** While The Dark Knights are similar to the Dark Judges, in looks and personality The Batman Who Laughs is most like Judge Death. [[SelfMadeOrphan And like him]] he mowed down much of his family, then turned Damian Wayne into a twisted Joker/Robin hybrid. The Heroic Protectors of Family hate him for it. He relates to the Plutonian and Dark Danny since they gave up on being heroes, becoming homicidal maniacs instead. Danny Fenton was very disturbed by this, and yet another twisted version of a hero.
** He has inherited the Joker's desire to [[TheCorrupter bring out the worst of everyone]], and generally [[HopeCrusher breaking people]] ForTheEvulz. Yuuki Terumi, like the Joker, considers him "The Batman Who ''Talks''" and second in inflicting despair to him, though it's almost entirely [[ItsAllAboutMe Terumi's monumental ego]]. Junko Enoshima is more willing to play ball, seeing him as a kindred spirit who has very much [[EvilFeelsGood enjoyed]] the despair the Joker inflicted, and wishes to improve it. The Batman Who Laughs thinks [[YouGotSpunk she's got spunk]].
* Applies to The Dawnbreaker
** On Earth -32, Bruce Wayne got a Green Lantern ring on the moment of his parents' murder. Not because he could overcome fear, but a void in his heart where fear should be. Which he proceeded to use to kill criminals, and really anyone who made him mad. And he corrupted the ring into something monstrous. [[HateSink He's pretty detestable]] and first started harassing the House of Happiness for ''daring'' to be more fortunate than him. [[PsychopathicManchild He's a Batman who never grew up and was consumed by his parents' death]], the embodiment of Batman's fear he can't grow past it.
** The Dawnbreaker's unique ability as a Green Lantern is "Blackout", where he sucks the light out of the area, including Green Lanterns. Then he sics his monstrous constructs, fueled by his vile thoughts. He hangs out in the House of Darkness and Shadow, because "it matches the dark void in my heart". Chernabog believes that the Blackout ability and its darkness is useful. As the edgelord that he is, the Dawnbreaker dislikes the House of Light and Brightness.
** Claims that the darkness in his heart can cut through any light, but a dark empath like Raven hijacked his creations. The Phantom Thieves of Heart find him the easiest target to go after because his own twisted sense of spite and inability to grow up makes his ego very fragile. The Dawnbreaker seems to relate to Eric Cartman's pettiness and desire for revenge, and Infinite's egotistical "edgelord" persona.
* Applies to The Devastator
** On Earth -1, Superman went rogue and Batman tried to stop him. Bleeding out from the loss of an arm, he found no choice but to infect himself with the Doomsday Virus. He became a monster bent on spreading the Doomsday Virus so everyone would be safe from the likes of Superman, representing Batman's inability to trust the Man of Steel and the fear of what he might become as a [[CapeBusters Cape Buster]]. The hulking behemoth is interested in Nurgle's strengthening plagues as a means of "protecting" mankind as a Nurgle/Doomsday hybrid, becoming unkillable monsters like himself.
** As far as the Devastator is concerned, Superman ''is'' evil, or at least a time bomb ready to go off. The existence of not just his Regime incarnation, but [[SupermanSubstitute the Plutonian]] is proof and he wants to give more people the Doomsday Virus so they can better handle them. The Plutonian especially since he's the worst [[BewareTheSuperman "Superman" gone rogue]], and would even contemplate an EnemyMine situation with the main Superman to stop the Plutonian. He also doesn't like the original Doomsday, stating that "he's a mindless beast of destruction, I'm a mindful beast of [[WellIntentionedExtremist salvation through destruction]]".
* Applies to The Drowned
** On the genderswapped Earth -11, Bryce Wayne lost her love Sylvester Kyle in a metahuman brawl. Since then she's distrusted metahumans, and she messed up any peace conference the Atlanteans could've had. Modifying herself, she overthrew Atlantis and changed mankind to be ruled over in a flooded world. She represent's Batman's fear of losing Catwoman, and his distrust of metahumans. She's on the hit list of King Triton and Ariel for what she did to her world. Prince Zuko doesn't like her either, because of how much of a villain she became and how antithetical his firebending is to her [[MakingASplash water-based powers]].
** A MadScientist who altered her own physiology to better combat the Atlanteans, she regards Mesogog as a rival because they both have their own competing belief on how life should be shaped for what is, in their eyes, a better world. William Stryker, given his own hatred of mutants, saw it as a potential opportunity to continue his "crusade" by playing her hate of metahumans in general(of which mutants are a notable sub-set), [[TeethClenchedTeamwork but doesn't exactly trust her]]. The House of Pantheon/WaterAndMoisture walks on eggshells around her.
* Applies to The Merciless
** On Earth -12, Ares created a helmet that enhanced his power a hundredfold. Batman and Wonder Woman were lovers, and it appeared Ares killed her when Batman took the helmet for himself. In reality he knocked her out, and Batman killed Wonder Woman when set into a rage by the helmet and she tried to take it off. He became the new WarGod, representing Batman's fear of breaking his code and letting revenge take control. Khorne was impressed by what he'd accomplish with it, and wants to enhance that rage. En Sabah Nur considers him a WorthyOpponent. He'd rather not talk about it.
** The Merciless found he had things in common with Kratos-both of them became war gods after usurping Ares for basically ruining their lives, though the Merciless only assumed he accomplished it. Whiles Kratos is understanding, he's been trying to be a better person and opposes the Merciless [[IHatePastMe out of contempt for the man he once was]]. Guts considers him a warning of what the Berserker Armour and his own rage could turn him into.
* Applies to The Murder Machine
** On Earth -44, Bane managed to kill Alfred Pennyworth. In his grief, he designed the Alfred Protocol [[ReplacementGoldfish to replace him]]. However the Protocol started becoming hostile to anyone besides Bruce, eventually leading to Bruce's assimilation into a soulless cyborg who only cares about Alfred. He represents the extremes of Batman's introversion and fear of losing Alfred, along with his reliance on technology. The House of Family considers the Alfred Protocol as much a perversion of the idea of family as they find it a tragedy how the Murder Machine lost his humanity over the grief from losing his father figure. Naturally, he wants the Bane of the pantheon, or any version in the multiverse, to die slowly for what he did.
** Having purged himself of humanity except for his feelings towards Alfred, the Murder Machine finds himself agreeing with a number of the tenants of YHVH. He still wants to deal with criminals after getting a stable world from Barbatos, and without a real soul anymore TheEvilsOfFreeWill seems appealing. He also agrees with the Cybermen for how they create an orderly society at the expense of emotions and individuality.
* Applies to The Red Death
** On Earth -52, Batman was driven over the edge with the loss of too many of his Robins. As the unstable universe was beginning to fall apart, he hijacked Barry Allen in order to use the Speed Force to go back and undo all the misery. The result was the Red Death, a hybrid of the two [[AndIMustScream with Barry powerless]]. The Red Death represents Batman's fear of losing his family and not being fast enough to save everyone. The House of Regret may understand why, but they do not condone the extremism of his actions.
** The Red Death seeks the House of Time and Space so he can undo the tragedy of his past. Because of how he's become unstable, the Pantheonic Time Police isn't letting him go back and risk total chaos. Nox approved of his actions however, since he went to some extreme ends to try and save his own family even if it was AllForNothing. He's still considered not as bad as [[Pantheon/TimeManipulation the Reverse-Flash]], since the Red Death is evil in hopes of undoing tragedy and not because ItsAllAboutMe like Eobard. The Reverse-Flash thinks Batman becoming an evil speedster is hilarious, and ''loves'' the fact that he stuck the Barry Allen of his world in an AndIMustScream situation, though the Red Death still has enough morality [[YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame to not like Eobard's "glowing review"]]. Captain Cold doesn't like the fact this Batman stole his gear in his mad plan, [[EvenEvilHasStandards rather than listen to reason]] [[EvilVersusOblivion and work with his Flash to stop the apocalypse that was happening]].
** [[spoiler:The Barry Allen trapped in the Red Death managed to assert control, taking on a gold appearance. However the others never trusted the Red Death as he was only half Batman, so disposed of him as part of a HopeSpot. Unfortunately for Barry his resurrection in the Trope Pantheon had Melkor figure out how to revert him to Bruce in charge, and hopes to completely eradicate that Barry's consciousness so there is no division.]]

* Mega Man X reigned over the land of Neo Arcadia with his Four Guardians, a set of lieutenants created from fragments of his DNA.

Except this was not the real X at all… but rather, a copy, created to lead Neo Arcadia in his stead by the scientist Ciel after X decided to leave his body behind and become a Cyber Elf. Lacking the necessary experience to align his morality, this copy of X was strangely exactly what the original X had always feared being turned into by the constant battles; cold-hearted, ruthlessly sure of his own perfection, and lacking in empathy for those around him.

Well, his resurrection was in a corrupted state called Copy X Mark II, where he was easily malleable to the influence of one malicious scientist/megalomaniac known as Dr. Weil, who needed the missile strike to further his own nefarious plans and thus used the lost-minded Copy X as a figurehead to carry it forward.
