  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: In Spec Ops 23, he seems at first on the side of the Alliance along with the other Inhumans. But it turns out he worked for Thanos all along, and was hoping to save himself when he tried double-crossing Thanos. Not that anyone was really buying it.
  • Cain and Abel: With Black Bolt.
  • Compelling Voice: His move "Persuasion", which makes one hero attack the other heroes for him.

  • Loud of War: One of his moves is "Mad Dub Drop", which employs weaponized dubstep.
  • Mad Scientist: Lampshaded in his nickname, even.

  • Playing Both Sides: His whole goal was to get S.H.I.E.L.D. and Thanos at each other's throats for some reason known only to himself.
  • Technobabble: The name of one of his moves, in which he causes Broken Will and Incapacitation by lecturing science at people.

  • Continuity Nod: in 2.5.3, Havok and Bishop go hunting for the Pharaoh; Bishop mentions that it's revenge for what happened to Beast during SpecOps 16.
  • Covers Always Lie: a partial version: mission selections feature the visage of the Boss for each mission, a'la Mega Man. Living Pharaoh is the "cover" for SpecOps 6.3, even though in the actual Boss battle, he starts off in his Living Monolith form (although he can revert back to normal if the player plays his cards right).

  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: As the Living Monolith.
  • One-Winged Angel: his transformation into the Living Monolith.

Nimrod Series MK IV

Power Armor

The latest in stolen Stark Industries technology mixed with the vile destruction of Hydra. The Hydra Power Armor makes a rock concert's laser light show look like a child's play.

Odin Borson


  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: If you defeat him.
  • Final Boss: And fittingly, he's extremely powerful.
  • God of Evil: Kind of. Was always indifferent to Midgard. In Chapter 11 he sets up a barrier around it and you stop other villains from provoking him to destroy Midgard. You fight him anyways after defeating Cul.
  • Hidden Villain: Your group wasn't expecting him to be the final boss. Neither was he, but Thor's death had him pissed.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Especially with his shield up.

    • Kurse's forehead
    • Arcade's eyes and glowing hands
    • Hybrid's entire body
  • Time-Limit Boss: a GB needs to be defeated within 3 days.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left

     Group Bosses 

Arcade

Raised in a wealthy family, Arcade grew from a spoiled, selfish child into a sociopathic killer. His love of toys became an obsession that inspired the creation of "Murderworld"; a deadly funhouse where trapped heroes become toys for Arcade's amusement.

  • Amusement Park of Doom: despite all three SpecOps missions having familiar maps, the battle screens inexplicably change into surreal environments, which can be likened to the backdrop of pinball machines. Or, more realistically, a theme park. It's Murder World, after all.
  • Death Trap: Pretty much the entirety of Arcade's villainous schtick revolves around this trope. This guy lives to go the extra mile when killing his enemies. He's even outright stated that he gives all of his targets a VERY small percentage of surviving, just to make things that much more interesting. Though seeing as all the heroes have exploited this percentage every single time they go up against him, Arcade seriously need to stop doing this to be taken seriously in the Villain community.
  • Large Ham: This dude SERIOUSLY loves the sound of his own voice. He goes on these epic speeches and monologues throughout the SpecOps.
  • Light Is Not Good
  • Psychopathic Man Child: Judging how much money Arcade has put into creating theme parks designed to kill people and how much joy he gets out of it, he certainly qualifies.
  • Rube Goldberg Hates Your Guts: Invokes this with every one of his Murder Worlds.
  • Troll: And how! Arcade is so much of a Troll, he's turned it into a career. He loves manipulating and killing people so much so that he doesn't even really care about the money at this point (though to be honest he never really did in the first place). This trope is invoked in all of the Group Boss battles as well, seeing as Arcade LOVES to put them debuffs and such on your team.

Bastion

Blackheart

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blackheart_4.png

Hybrid

After nearly being destroyed by Scream, the other four offspring of Venom merged together into a new entity. Calling itself Hybrid, it has become something far more than the sum of its parts.

See his entry in the Heroes' Blasters folder.

Kingpin

Wilson Fisk's rise from the streets of Hell's Kitchen was a result of his strong ambition and strategic mind than just his incredible skull-crushing strength. His ruthless efforts became infamous, earning him the title as the Kingpin of crime.

  • Affably Evil
  • Bald of Evil
  • Deal with the Devil: Made a deal with Mephisto to try to get past Odin's barrier.
  • Enemy Mine: The Enemy Civil War between the Maggia and HYDRA forces Fisk to reluctantly turn to S.H.I.E.L.D. for help.
  • Guest Star Mission Control: in Season 2, Chapter 3.
  • Large and in Charge: His dialogue artwork makes him look absolutely massive.
  • Man in White: Of the villainous type.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: In SpecOps 25, he let the Runaways "infiltrate" his operation, solve a few problems for him, and was courteous throughout, even though he knew the whole time they were working for SHIELD.
  • Would Not Hurt A Child: Despite everyone's worries that he would dispose of the Runaways when he no longer needed them, he did no worse than send them on their way once he decided the game was up. He even warned them when they were about to encounter villains who posed a genuinely lethal threat.

Kurse

Algrim the Strong was Malekith's most loyal lieutenant. Abusing that loyalty, Malekith transformed Algrim into the monstrous Kurse, then convinced Kurse that all of his suffering was the fault of one Asgardian: Thor.

  • The Brute
  • The Dragon: to Malekith
  • Status-Buff Dispel: his Living Armor ability, usually activated a few turns before escaping, allows him to remove all debuffs and damage-over-time effects from himself.

Red Skull

Johann Schmidt's notorious skills in torture, espionage, and assassination made him the most feared operative of the Nazi regime. He is utterly devoid of morality or mercy, an inhuman embodiment of fascist evil.

The oldest being in all the realms, Surtur is the Lord of Muspelheim and Odin's eternal rival. Wielding the Twilight Sword, Surtur seeks to destroy all the realms in fire, leaving nothing but the ashes of creation behind.

Thanos

Born a mutant amongst the already-powerful Eternals, Thanos is one of the most powerful beings in the universe. He is utterly devoted to the worship of Death, and will not be satisfied until all life in the universe is extinguished.

  • All Your Powers Combined: Omnipotence allows Thanos to gain bonuses from all the classes (example: the Tacticians' extra turn, Blasters' Critical Hit, etc.).
  • Chekhov's Gag: Omnipotence (both his attack and the buff it generates) sounds awfully similar to Omniclass, a "character class" Playdom created for an April Fools' Day joke, which involves another Marvel Mega-Cosmic Entity, Galactus. Keep in mind what the Omnipotence buff does to Thanos.
  • Flunky Boss: His Tactician and Scrapper versions can summon Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight (respectively) and call them back indefinitely if they are eliminated from battle.
  • Four Is Death: The current members of the Black Order: Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, Ebony Maw, and Supergiant.
  • Meaningful Name/Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His name is derived from the Greek avatar of Death Thanatos, which also reflects his fascination in courting Mistress Death.
  • Omnicidal Maniac
  • One-Hit Kill: His Tactician Beam Blast inflicts 10,000+ HP of damage, practically killing any full-health hero.
  • Status-Buff Dispel: Black Hole

Ultron

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultronr.png

Dell Rusk

The entirety of Spec Ops 12 is to take down Dell Rusk.
  • Enemy Mine: in SpecOps 17, the player can opt to take missions from Rusk.
  • Foreshadowing: If anyone has read the current comics, you should have a good idea in store...if not check out the internet. Believe me you'll be surprised. Read at your own risk.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: he's the Big Bad of SpecOps 12, but he delegates by letting his Dark Avengers do the talking.

Ebony Maw

Though frail and without powers, Ebony Maw can undo even the greatest of heroes using nothing but his voice. Lies and deceit flow freely from his tongue, making him a master of manipulation.
