A God Am I / Literature

Go To

The printed word doesn't have many ways to show that someone is a Physical God, so when description fails, the guy just says so out loud.

  • The Spellmonger Series: The immensely powerful lich Sharuel declares himself the living god-emperor of the gurvani.
  • Gone: By the end of Plague, Caine expects everyone to refer to him as king, and appoints himself supreme ruler of Perdido Beach.
  • John Carter of Mars:
    • In The Gods of Mars, Issus is almost universally worshipped as a goddess by all the Martian races, but is actually just a manipulative old Black Martian crone with delusions of grandeur.
    • Advertisement:
    • In a larger scale, the Holy Therns and the First Born are whole races of these. They literally consider themselves divine beings and superior to everyone else, when in reality, they are just as mortal as the other Martian people.
  • His Dark Materials: The Authority claims to be the Abrahamic god, but is actually the oldest angel.
  • Ender's Game:
    • Virlomi believed that she could communicate with the gods, and that she was divinely ordained to save India. All of India worshipped her as the Goddess of the Bridge.
    • The "God Spoken" on the planet of Path are believed to be spoken to by the gods. This is the reasoning behind their extreme intelligence and the reason they have to "purify" themselves through rituals such as tracing wood grains, counting steps, and being extremely sanitary. In the end they discover that the "God Spoken" have merely been genetically engineered to be smarter, and were also engineered to have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in order to prevent them from being a threat to the government.

  • The Homecoming Saga: The Keeper of Earth is never outright stated to be God (or even Gaia), but with the stunts She (as The Keeper is usually called) pulls off (sending an image of Nafai's face to a Digger girl 1,000 years before he was born, chasing the bulk of humanity off with a spontaneous Ice Age), She might as well be.
  • Dune: Paul Atreides becomes the Kwisatz Haderach, the universe's super being. His consciousness can be in many places at once and can see things before they happen. He is worshipped as a messiah and god. He doesn't personally consider himself to be a god, but plays on superstition to appear as a god to his followers. While he denies his own divinity he plainly states that his sister Alia is a goddess. Of course this may have been for effect.
  • The Lord of the Rings:
    • When offered the Ring, Galadriel firmly refuses it on the grounds that its power would inevitably go to her head, give her delusions of godhood and lead her to becoming Middle Earth's next dark lord.

    • Played straight with Sauron and his predecessor and former master, Morgoth. Both made themselves out as gods to their orcish and human followers such as the Haradrim. Tolkien himself referred to their reigns as "evil theocracies". Morgoth was somewhat justified, as he was one of the Valar, beings similar to the Greek gods except they did not want to be worshiped, as that was Eru's right to be worshipped alone. Sauron encouraged and enforced worship of Morgoth via human sacrifice on both Númenor, Mordor, and the southern lands.
    • Morgoth also wanted to be God, to the point he weaved his own soul into Arda at the beginning of time. He claims to Húrin that he actually is God. Húrin calls him on his bullshit. Morgoth sought to be God because he originally wanted to create. When he learned he could never truly create anything new, his despair turned to destructive rage and hatred for all those who could. As humans are implied to have the ability to create new things of their own (unlike the Valar, Maiar, and Elves), he hates them most of all.
  • Dragonlance:
    • One character's pursuit of this trope is the plot driver for the second trilogy. Raistlin succeeds, with rather horrific results for all involved. Including him. But through a continuation of the somewhat involved time-travel storyline, Caramon warns him of this early enough on for Raistlin to upgrade his condition to sort-of-heroically sacrificed and dead. (Or tortured for all eternity in Hell.) Though this does not prevent him from making postmortem cameos.
    • Kingpriest of Istar who went as far as demanding the gods serve him. What brought about the cataclysm was his demand that the gods make him a god himself.
    • Or Fistandantilus, who came up with the whole "become a god" plan that Raistlin hijacked. In fact, he was the man behind the Kingpriest as well. And from The Legend of Huma there was Galan Dracos, whose plan to steal the Dark Queen's powers wasn't as well thought out as the others, though to be fair it took place chronologically first, so they might have been able to learn from his mistakes. Really, this one crops up a lot with Evil Sorcerers in Dragonlance, or any DnD world.
  • Forgotten Realms:
    • Obould Many-Arrows acquires the moniker Obould-Who-Is-Gruumsh at the height of his power, Gruumsh being the chief god of the Orcs. Gruumsh sponsored Obould as his Chosen (divine minion given with a shred of godly power without extra strings attached) before this and vassal demigod after (upon death), so it's only a relatively minor exaggeration.
    • Karsus from ancient pre-history was the only man who acquired divine status through spellcasting. Well, for a minute or so, anyway. Just long enough to see how much it Gone Horribly Wrong — he did it to save Netheril and ended up almost completely destroying it. Just to make things worse, it is implied Karsus was aware that it wouldn't last much more than a few minutes and that he would die (or something close to it) at the end — Karsus was much more realistic about the fact that he wasn't a god and there was more to it than just being a powerful archmage with some secret trick was than many of his fellow Netherese archmages, even if he underestimated how hard it would be to control the power and responsibility he was suddenly saddled with.
  • Gog: This trope is the entire focus of the Egolatry chapter, where a hideously ugly professor tells Gog that the best, most natural and closest to humankind religion that "combines the advantages of monotheism and polytheism" would be everyone worshipping themselves. Therefore, everyone would be equal in their beliefs and no longer disunited. He believed this to be an extension of ideas of "man creating God" and recommended that everyone build shrines to themselves in their homes.
  • Second Apocalypse:
    • Conphas eventually convinces himself that he is a god.
    • And in what has been revealed of the second trilogy, Kellhus gets himself worshiped as one.
  • Corum: The ambitious sorcerer Shool is convinced he has already become a god and is aiming for Supreme God, enlisting Corum for the purpose. In the end it turns out he was merely a puppet of the Chaos Lords, and is left a hollow, dying shell after he has outlived his usefulness.
  • Incarnations of Immortality:
    • Inverted. Since the original God is too caught up in this trope's attitude to bother with Earthly affairs, a more humble individual must be manipulated into becoming God.
    • Another interesting point is Satan. According to Archangel Gabriel one of the most effective Incarnations of Evil precisely because Satan does NOT follow this trope, and hence did not become Drunk with Power.
  • Discworld:
    • Thief of Time: Lobsang/Jeremy becomes the new Time, with control over all aspects of it - although to be honest, it's more of a responsibility and a change of pace than anything having to do with powers. And despite his newfound status, he still submits to Lu-Tze in the dojo, in a brilliant denouement.
    • Sourcery: Coin actually imprisoned all the known gods in a sphere of thought just to prove that he could.
    • Pyramids: When now-King Teppic re-enters his home country of Djelibeybi (counterpart to Ancient Egypt), after it has been pushed out of reality, the intense belief of his subjects makes him divine.
  • Journey to Chaos: The overwhelming power Governor Caffour gained through necrocraft makes him so delusional that he thinks he's become a god, even though all his power comes from a real god.
    My soul is no longer the puny mortal soul it was when you arrived. It is divine. I am a god!
  • Journey to the West: Sun Wukong, the Monkey King. After taking the Ruyi-Jingu-Bang from the palace of the Dragon King of the West, he's given a position in the Jade Emperor's court to satiate his desire for acknowledgement. However, once Wukong realizes that he's been given a janitorial position, he sets up a plot to, and succeeds in, taking over Heaven, declaring himself "the Sage Greater than Heaven". It isn't until the Jade Emperor asks Buddha himself to do something that Wukong is ousted. Ironically, after he's freed and assists Xuangzang in his journey, he does become worshipped as a god, and in Buddhism is proclaimed the Buddha of Courage (not a godly position entirely, but as close as someone can get to godhood in a religion which itself has no real gods).
  • The Riddle Master Trilogy features the Earthmasters, arrogant and powerful once-human beings and chronicles the transformation of a withdrawn young scholar into his world's god.
  • Great Game: All "gods" derive their power from people worshipping them and any dimension traveller can become a "god" in another world. The plot revolves around the attempt by the existing gods to stop a new god from accruing sufficient power to topple them all, and the main character's attempts to stop him by becoming a new god as well.
  • Tales of the Branion Realm: The royal family of a fantasy England is physically possessed by a fire god, making the sovereign something of a Christ-figure. Not only does she have divine right, she can prove it. She can set things on fire with a thought, and her family has blazing eyes. Most of the books center on the oddities of religion under such a system: What do you do when God is your mother (and is being abusive)? What do you do when God is a five-year-old child? What do you do when God converts to the worship of a different God? (The answer to the latter is that you seduce God and raise his kid up in the correct religion.)
  • The Salvation War: Satan thinks of himself as a god. Considering who he is, not too surprising... Thing is, this also applies to Yahweh!
  • The Dresden Files:
    • Dead Beat revolves around several necromancers competing to be the focus of the Darkhallow ritual to absorb enough powerful souls of the dead to attain godlike power.
    • Changes features Kukulcan, aka the Red King. The Red king is the founder of the Red Court vampires and believes himself to be a God, allowing him to do anything that he wishes. The Red Court even perform Human Sacrifice to him.
  • The Malloreon:
    • The mad disciple Urvon declare himself a god. We then get a scene of Child of the Dark Zandramas putting him down:
      "And if you are a god, then I now call the Godslayer!"
    • The Emperor of Mallorea, Zakath, claims the title of Kal, which means King and God. Though he explains to the protagonists that he doesn't actually think he is a god (while mad he's not that kind of mad), claiming the title was just a propaganda stunt aimed at trying to re-unify Mallorea in the wake of Torak's death. He basically drops it when met, since it wasn't fulfilling its intended purposes, and fully drops it at the end, as he notes it seems silly now that he has met real gods.
  • In The Elenium and The Tamuli, also by David Eddings: The main protagonist of the series, Sir Sparhawk, is "Anakha", the man without destiny. In the end of the last book it is revealed that instead of just being able to use Bhelliom's powers, he himself is in fact at least as capable as the Bhellion. It's also suggested that it was actually him all along instead of Bhelliom's powers. For comparison, Bhelliom and its counterpart Klael have powers beyond any of the deities mentioned in the series.
  • The Pendragon Adventure: Saint Dane, and he's probably right, to an extent.
  • A Nightmare on Elm Street: In A Nightmare on Elm Street: Protege, Freddy tells Jerome that, while he may be limited in the real world, in the dream world he's essentially God. Cue Freddy briefly making himself gigantic and causing the sky to change into a swirling black vortex of thunder and lightning.
  • Brandon Sanderson loves this trope — all of his major works feature mortals with godlike power who are worshipped as divine. This includes the real gods of his multiverse, called Shards. They are sixteen incarnate forces (Honor, Preservation and Ruin being named examples), far above anything else. Shards generally have mortal intelligences attached to them, and can be passed on to others given the right circumstances, but their personality is eventually totally overwritten by the Intent of the Shard. In specific books, we have:
    • Elantris: The Elantrians, a race of quasi-immortal magic users worshipped as divine, though it's unclear if they bought into it themselves. They have silver hair, metallic skin, glow faintly and a massive range of magical powers.
    • Mistborn: The Original Trilogy: The Lord Ruler, King and God of The Empire, who is actually just a human with a particularly powerful combination of natural abilities. He has ruled the Final Empire for roughly 1000 years when the series starts, and has his own church called the Steel Ministry. This trope is also invoked by Kelsier who deliberately positions himself as a god to give the masses something else to believe in, so they'll rebel. The Waxand Wayne series shows that his Religion still exists a few hundred years in the future as well. In the end of the original trilogy, Vin and then Sazed are mortals who become the real deal, Vin temporarily, and Sazed become the worlds new long-term God.
    • Warbreaker: The Returned are people who died in some notable fashion and then return to life; opinions as to what exactly they are varies across the world, but in Hallandred, where most of the action takes place, they are seen as gods and they (and their priests) run the secular government as well. The God-King is another example, a Returned who was stillborn and thus never lived a normal life, and is (as the title suggests) King of the other gods.
    • The Stormlight Archive: The ten Heralds of the Almighty are apparently (we don't know much about their background yet) humans imbued with a portion of Honor's power to help preserve humanity against the Desolations. During the time the series takes place in, they've mostly passed into legend; Vorinism, the planet's dominant religion, treats them more like angels or saints than gods, but there are other religions that center around the worship of one or more Heralds.
      • Also Played for Laughs when Sylphrena points out (correctly) that she is a god... or at least a little tiny piece of one. She is a tiny piece of the Shard Honor, Shards are the closest things to Gods currently extant in the Cosmere.
  • The Sword of Truth: This may be a little unfair, but Richard Rahl does maintain and encourage the tradition of everyone regularly bowing down and chanting "Master Rahl guide us... in your light we thrive... our lives are yours," for four hours a day. Eventually there was a point to keeping this up, but not initially.
  • Conan the Barbarian: Subverted when Muriela, who specializes in impersonating gods, emerges from behind an idol of a goddess glowing purple and giving a different A God Am I speech than the one they had rehearsed. When the worshippers are all off doing her bidding Conan sneaks over and suggests that they leave, at which point she tells him not to be so presumptuous and to clear off before she remembers that he intended to con people in her name. It is strongly implied that the girl lives happily ever after in exchange for periodically renting her physical form to the goddess, who thought the girl was far more fetching than her idol.
  • Star Wars Legends: Done unintentionally by Leia during the Thrawn Crisis in several novels. After Grand Admiral Thrawn orders Noghri commandos to kidnap Leia as part of a plot to convert her and her brother, they're at first unsuccessful, but eventually recognize her by scent. As it turns out, the Noghri had previously worshipped Darth Vader as a god after seeing a display of his powers, and after scent-identification makes them realize Leia was his daughter, switch their alliance to her and her family, believing her to be divine as well (even so much as giving her the title "Lady Vader"). Leia never actually claimed to be a goddess, but having the Noghri as allies to the New Republic is too much of a benefit to pass up.
  • Jacen and Jaina Solo in later novels take on personas of two Yuuzhan Vong gods. Jacen also has God Mode later, but With Great Power Comes Great Insanity.
    • New Jedi Order: Onimi, the Big Bad, believes that if he kills everyone in the galaxy he'll get the power he needs to become a god. Somewhat unusually, he also believes that Jacen and Jaina (and several other Jedi) are incarnate gods, and in his mind the whole series is a conflict between the established pantheon and himself trying to usurp them, played out through the Republic and the Yuuzhan Vong. Yes, he's insane. However did you guess?
    • The same idea of "kill everybody to become a true god" is played out nearly to the letter by Sith Emperor Tenebrae Vitiate in the events of the Second Great Galactic War, though he, unlike Onimi, also has a far smarter backup plan.
    • Fate of the Jedi: It's hinted that the main goal of Abeloth, the Eldritch Abomination Big Bad, is to become a god.
  • Safehold: The survivors of humanity are transported to a new world to escape the aliens that destroyed them and, to avoid detection, must enter a Medieval Stasis. Langhorne and Bédard, the two in charge of the project, brainwash the survivors into thinking they're the creations of God, with those leading the project being angels and Archangels. They justify this as a necessity, claiming it will avoid the complications of enforcing Medieval Stasis and prevent them from re-reaching space flight level to soon. The truth is Langhorne and Bédard are megalomaniacs who like being Archangels and may well believe their own schtick. Unsurprisingly, the woman who stands up to this and rebels is labeled the Crystal Dragon Satan in the religion.
  • The Vampire Chronicles: Akasha was worshiped as a goddess for centuries, and came to believe it.
  • Dean Koontz: This seems to happen quite a few times:
    • Villains in his Frankenstein series, as well as his novel Midnight being the most obvious examples. Even if a villain doesn't believe that he is becoming a god, they are often arrogant in the extreme.
    • In Dragon Tears, the villain, Bryan Drackman, is a powerful psychic born with the ability to stop time, create and animate golem bodies in which to stalk his victims, telekinesis, and pyrokinesis. His abilities have grown overtime, and Drackman believes that they will increase enough with practice so he might become the New God and Take Over the World. In order to practice and enhance his abilities, he stalks and toys with the protagonists in the meantime.
    • At the end of the short story, "A Darkness in My Soul", a psychic goes on a Journey to the Center of the Mind and finds God trapped in the psyche of an insane genius. He then absorbs God's powers and then takes over the universe after giving half of the power to his girlfriend. Bored with exploring the universe, they decide to start a world war back on Earth for amusement, using humans as playthings.
  • A classic short story, "Answer", written by Fredric Brown in 1954, has every single computer in the galaxy linked together to answer a single question: "Is there a God?" The computer responds: "Now there is."
  • The Count of Monte Cristo: Played with. Edmond decides that since God hasn't seen fit to reward the good and punish the wicked (quite the opposite, in fact), it is up to man to become God-like. The book does quite a good question of asking what exactly separates Edmond from being a God: he's got enough money to do whatever he wants, intelligence that borders on the omniscience, the willingness and the capacity to destroy or reward those he deems wicked or worthy, a personal gravitas that causes everyone to instantly worship or fear him, he's separated from humanity by both the unfair condemnations of others and personal choice, and, with his mastery of medicine and the legal system, quite objectively holds the power of life and death. The only real difference is that, for him, It's Personal.
  • Chaos Walking: Aaron, in The Knife of Never Letting Go, believes that he's a saint, and says so in the waterfall-shrouded church right before Viola stabs him through the neck.
  • Star Shards Chronicles: The protagonists struggle with their godlike Star Shard powers, especially Dillon, who is the most powerful. A large part of the second book of the trilogy deals with their "We are gods walking the earth and you should worship us" phase.
  • Played with and subverted in E.E. Smith's "Tedric" stories. Skandos, a human-like scientist with remarkable technological powers, spends most of his time trying to convince the barbarian Tedric that he is NOT a God. He finally assumes the role when he realises it's pointless trying to talk Tedric out of his belief, and that making an appearance as Tedric's personal deity will have immense benefits to the civilisation of which Tedric is a part, but he himself knows full well that it's only an act. And while Skandos knows he's only mortal (he's murdered three incarnations of himself in parallel universes already), his technological capabilities are so far ahead of the medieval society he's interfering in as to constitute an extension of Clarke's Third Law to effective Godhood.
  • Neuromancer: At the end the two rivaling A.I.s Neuromancer and Wintermute amalgamate, and in the words of the new AI it is now the matrix, "the entirety of the system, the whole show". Playing the second variant straight, it tells the protagonist that it has found others of its kind, for example one in Alpha Centauri - and then vanishes.
  • The Lord of the Isles: In one book, Sharina inadvertently travels through time and ends up on an island with a man who claims to be related to the god of storms. His parades are accompanied by thunder created by sheets of tin under the wheels of his chariots.
  • Young Wizards: Aurilelde, from A Wizard of Mars, has the kernel of Mars implanted in her and effectively becomes Mars itself, and as she tries to kill Nita she gets angrier and angrier, unintentionally almost ripping Mars apart in her rage.
  • Time Scout gives us several:
    • Jack the Ripper
      Jack: If a mere chit can be taken for a goddess, then I shall certainly rule as a god!
    • Ianira Cassondra is called the living goddess and, thanks to her training under the high priestess at the temple of Artemis in Ephesus, evinces psychic and prophetic powers.
    • Skeeter Jackson was worshiped as a living god and honorary uncle to the boy who would become Genghis Khan.
  • In Death series: Chaos In Death has Eve Dallas confront Dr. Chaos, who actually declares "I'm not a man. I am a god!"
  • True Names: When Mr. Slippery and Erythrina forcibly multiplex their consciousness, it gives them the power to take over more machines almost without thinking. Repeat until they (and the Big Bad) have total control over and knowledge of anything connected to any computer ever. The Big Bad detonates several nukes in their silos to make a point in discussion, and it's not a big deal to any of them. At one point, Mr. Slippery is frustrating and rerouting the soldiers sent to kill his real body as a side process while concentrating on something different.
  • Master And God charts the slide into insanity and delusion of the Roman Emperor Domitian, last of the Flavian dynasty and son of the very down to earth and sensible Emperor Vespasian. The sheer burden of responsibility drives Domitian insane and, like other emperors before him, he becomes megalomaniac and insists on his own divinity.
  • Trapped on Draconica: Kazebar has a god complex so great he thinks he's surpassed Dronor.
  • Keys to the Kingdom: For a heroic example, Arthur after getting five keys keeps having to choke back his tendencies in this direction, keeping him from going over the edge.
  • Left Behind: Nicolae Carpathia, particularly after Satan indwells him following his "resurrection".
  • Horatio Hornblower: The first published book, The Happy Return, has Don Julian Alvarado — or rather, "El Supremo". He claims to be a direct descendant of Moctezuma and a god, punishing the "unenlightened" by brutally killing them. Hornblower has to assist his attempt to revolt against the Spanish in Nicaragua, and then has to fight him when the Spanish ally with Britain.
  • Glory in the Thunder quotes the entire biblical passage in-text. Holders of Aspects of the Divinity are referred to as gods and tend to go mad with power, even though most of them are just as mortal as anyone else, and none are even close to omnipotence.
  • Apotheosis: This is Adam's bag. He went mad when he learned that the Race, his creators, are extinct, built himself a distributed nanotech body, and went forth to convert all life in the universe to nanoclouds that worship Adam, and kill everyone who refused.
  • The Immortals: In the third book, Emperor Mage, Emperor Ozorne all but bans worship in Carthak, saying that if the people need to pray, they pray to him. Given that gods in the Tortall Universe are real and are tetchy, this doesn't go over well.
  • Sacré Bleu: Bleu, the muse, once refers to herself as "a fucking goddess", and is not at all unjustified in doing so.
  • The Quantum Thief: The Sobornost Founders claim to have Outgrown Such Silly Superstitions, but that doesn't prevent them from having God-complexes the size of the Solar System, especially Matjek Chen, who seeks to recreate reality itself in his own image because he got angry at death as a child. They impose sensation called xiao on all their trillions of subjects that makes them feel religious awe towards them. Joséphine Pellegrini even has temples in her name and millions of pilgrims travel to the Fast Cities of Venus to sacrifice themselves for her. Even those who don't follow the Founders call them the Gods of the Inner System.
  • Forging Divinity: Part of the core premise is The Paladin, Lydia, investigating Edon, a new supposed deity.
  • Midnight’s Children: Though we never hear the Widow's own stance on it, the Widow's Hand claims this of her. Saleem believes this delusion to be the reason why she goes to such lengths to neutralize her political rivals and the midnight's children — she refuses to tolerate any other potential "gods" that could undermine her superiority.
  • In Dragonvarld, the Mistress of Dragons is worshipped as a goddess, and has a cult of priestesses to serve her. Her divinity is supposed to be passed on to successors, since she still has human form and physical bodies don't last forever. It's actually a case of Grand Theft Me, and moreover, the scheme is being run by a dragon, the very being the Mistress of Dragons is supposed to have ascended to divinity by defeating.
  • Journey to Chaos: Looming Shadow boasts of a monkey beastfolk who becomes a Life Drinker with necrocraft and goes on a screeching and insane rant about how he has become a god.
  • In The Golgotha Series, Ray Zeal declares himself the God of Murder and Torture and Pain. He furthermore states his intention to kill off every other god so that he can be the world's only god — a tall order, since in this series All Myths Are True and there are plenty of other beings which can make credible claims of being gods.
  • Imperium : In Dictator, during Caesar and Cicero's last conversation, Caesar says he's not afraid of death, and Cicero asks him why. Caesar replies that he won't die with his body, because he's a god. Cicero realizes that all that power has driven Caesar mad.
  • The Flying Boy: Dr. Andy Paigne wants to collect enough superpowers to become a god.
  • Confessions: The cult St. Augustine spends his twenties flirting with was founded by an ill-educated astrologer who claimed to be the Holy Spirit in the flesh. St. Augustine is pretty sure he was deluded and strongly recommends his reader's share that opinion.
  • "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream": The Allied Mastercomputer is very not subtle about who it thinks it is.
  • Devils & Thieves: Darek declares himself a god when he gets every kindled power.
  • Shades of Magic: Osaron, an ancient being Made of Magic that consumed an entire world, declares itself a god and a king. Everyone else (who isn't being mind-controlled by it) insists that it's nothing more than a big chunk of magic with an ego.
  • The Neverending Story: Bastian, driven semi-insane by excessive wishing, decides that he should become the new Childlike Emperor of Fantastica— like dozens of saviors before him, who are now all stuck in Fantastica as idiot children.
  • Wonder Woman: Warbringer: Jason's plan is to add to the powers he has inherited as the descendant of gods and humans, mold the earth into a battlefield and attain immorally. He makes no secret that he's looking to become a god once his true allegiances are revealed, and he already considers humans and Amazons beneath him.
  • Forges of Mars: Archmagos Vettius Telok feels that his discovering and harnessing of the Breath of the Gods, an alien device that can rejuvenate dying stars and create entire solar systems, gives him the right to call himself a god. He further feels that it gives him the right to usurp the God-Emperor by using the Breath of the Gods to destroy Terra.
  • Arc of Fire: How Myrren feels when she wields the Dark Heart against Kyrian and his army.


How well does it match the trope?
