Heroes

     ACP- 001 "Ophelia" 

  • Androids Are People, Too: Ophelia is deeply hurt whenever someone claims she is simply a machine, be it human or fellow robot. Her A.I is advanced enough that she no longer considers herself a robot posing as a human, but a human in the form of a robot.
  • Do-Anything Robot: As an ACP, Ophelia is designed to have the most storage space physically possible in order to carry a ridiculous number of gadgets and equipment, including fire-blankets, first-aid kits, jaws of life, deployable rolls of barricade tape, self-repair tools, extra ammo for weaponry, and even collapsible ear-defenders to protect young children's hearing in the case of loud gunfire.
  • Hate at First Sight: With RoM, due to his directly opposing programming. Although not a match for him in combat during their first battle due to her being severely understocked, Ophelia vowed to come back and destroy him, saying that even if she couldn't defeat him herself, he would be swarmed by a legion of ACPs in time.
  • Super-Powered Robot Meter Maids: Justified, as Ophelia's primary purpose is to escort and protect civilians in the case of villain attacks or other dangerous situations, which may require drastic action. As a result, she has machine guns, grenade launchers, ring-airfoil projectiles, and many other lethal and non-lethal weaponry to ensure the civilian's safety.
  • Super Prototype: Ophelia was originally planned to be a one-off, made by Alex as a caretaker for his bedridden mother. But as he realised that she could be used for so much more, he made plans to mass-produce them in time, albeit with slightly simpler and cheaper variants.
  • Thank the Maker: Before she started to refer to Alex as "Father", this was her initial reaction upon him telling her he was her creator. He didn't take it well.

AKA Kyle Moon

     Dynamo 

(AKA Katherine "Kaylee" Thomas)

  • Clock Punk: Her primary power is the ability to summon gears, cogs, and constructs of razor-sharp brass and clockwork for use as weaponry, theorized by Alex to be originating from a pocket dimension.
  • Fiery Redhead: Downplayed example. She hasn't raised her voice at all during her appearances, electing for a more sarcastic, dry approach to the inevitable insanity of a world inhabited by superheroes. That being said, she still doesn't seem to be the type of person you would want to anger, judging by her... irritated texts to Alex for abandoning her in the mall to drop off his suit at their workshop. It doesn't bear to think about what would happen if you actually threatened her.
  • Oblivious to Love: Hasn't picked up that Alex seems to stutter and become more flustered around her in particular, despite it being incredibly obvious.
  • What Is This Feeling?: While waiting for Alex in the mall, she witnessed the childlike filth-goddess Elly and her host Rebecca interact like they were sisters or mother and daughter, causing a deep want that she didn't recognize at the time for a child of her own. She then realised that this is what Alex felt like all the time, and what drove him to create Ophelia in the first place, thereby raising her respect for him.
  • Wrench Wench: Her father was a mechanic, and she has picked up his skills, which are proving immensely useful in the workshop. She is adept in programming as well, but is clearly more used to working with projects with more physical effort.

     Ember Maiden 

(AKA Cora DuFresne)

     ION 

(AKA Alex Selby)

     Jackson Rainer 

(AKA Stalwart/The Leviathan)

  • Deadpan Snarker: His sense of humour is often dry-witted, covering up his insecure and occasionally dorky personality.
  • Healing Factor: For some, seemingly unrelated reason, Jackson possesses a form of enhanced regeneration, making up for his lack of durability usually seen in a Lightning Bruiser. While not being able to regenerate From a Single Cell, he can heal flesh wounds in minutes and broken bones in mere hours.
  • Killing Intent: Jackson constantly has an unexplained psychic aura of oppression surrounding him, flaring when he is under severe stress or terror. This can actually be detrimental for him, as it causes intense physical pain whenever it flares, and fills his head with strange whispering. This means if he has a "seizure" in the middle of a fight, a villain who is resistant to it may be able to get a hit in.
  • Sharing a Body: With his own father, Levi Rainer. Also referring to himself as "The Leviathan" he is the most likely source of Jackson's strength, aura, and regeneration, and resides within his subconscious until his vessel is in danger. His motivations are unclear as of now, but he seems protective of his son even when dormant.
  • Stronger Than They Look: The most notable (and somewhat hilarious) attribute of Jackson is his lack of muscle mass and fat, making him look like a weed, in sharp contrast to his ridiculous levels of strength. He is fully aware of how ridiculous it looks, and repeatedly jokes about it.
  • Super Strength: To a ridiculous degree. Although he has only unintentionally used it so far, Jackson is described as being able to "backhand a speeding truck off the road" and "tear down a concrete wall like wet paper". This also extends to his legs, granting him Super Speed of up to 80 mph.

     The Kyūbi no Kitsune 

(AKA Eiju)

  • Faux Flame: His true form is made of this, and he can also wield it and manipulate it when shapeshifted. The foxfire, as well as acting like normal fire, can also be used to heal wounds, or on the other scale, drain a person's lifeforce as it burns them.
  • From a Single Cell: Eiju cannot be killed unless every single tail is destroyed or cut off, so as long as one remains mostly intact, he can regenerate from practically a speck of flesh, given enough time. His true foxfire form can be made intangible for a quick escape even when physically crippled, which is the only reason he has survived this long.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: His true desire in life, beneath all the pranks and silliness, is to find his one true mate and start his own family, but due to his lack of interaction with other kitsune and yōkai, feels as if this wish will never be fulfilled. He is ecstatic whenever he finds people that accept him, despite the kitsune's infamous reputation for being tricksters.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: A repeated tactic of his when interacting with humans is to pretend to be childlike, or powerful but lacking in the intelligence department. While he certainly slips up or misses things, he is highly intelligent and wise due to exploring the world and its events for nearly a whole millennia.
  • Really 700 Years Old: The only visible indication of ageing in him is his number of tails. As a Kyūbi no Kitsune, (that is, a kitsune with nine tails) he is estimated past 900 years of age, but not a millennia, due to the fact that kitsune with nine tails ascend to a celestial fox form at that age.
  • Shapeshifter: Naturally, due to him being a Kitsune. His base form is that of a white fox with a multiple tails, while his true form is made of a pure spiritual energy known as "foxfire." He gained the ability to shapeshift into any human female at the age of 100, and any human male at the age of 200 with the growth of his second tail. Theoretically, he can now transform into anyone he likes, as long as he keeps enough tails.
  • Super Mode: His giant fox form, which he rarely uses due to its cumbersome nature.
  • The Trickster: A prominent hobby of his is pranking, the more powerful the victim the better. His pranks are usually harmless and in good fun, but he also likes to mess with his enemies, leaning him towards a more Karmic Trickster.

     Monkey 

     The Mosquito Man 

     Pollutrix 

     Rine Anok 

     Sapphire 

     Rubeus 

     Tinkerer 

     The Traveler 

     Voron 

     The Will and Spirit 

The Duo In General:

  • Action Duo: Well, they are superheroes, after all.
  • Like Brother and Sister: They love each other platonically. But, instead of being mistaken as a couple, they're sometimes mistaken as daughter and father.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Their entire dynamic boils down to this. Careful Joseph is dragged by adventurous Yu-Na (sometimes literally).
  • Personality Powers: Played with (zig-zagged with Joseph, while mostly subverted with Yu-Na).
  • They Fight Crime!: One is a disillusioned masked vigilante. One is a plucky aspiring undead superhero. Together, they fight super crime.

The Venom Dog (AKA Joseph Stark):

  • Anti-Hero: Joseph... is not exactly the paragon of justice.
  • Chaotic Good: Well, being a vigilante and distrusting authorities is a quality of Chaotic Good hero.
  • The Cowl: His usual method is striking from the shadows like a ninja. He had less opportunities to be this with the appearance of Yu-Na.
  • The Cynic: Juxtaposing idealistic Yu-Na.
  • Cynical Mentor: Subverted in that he has high hopes for Yu-Na.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Wears all black, still a hero (albeit a more pragmatic kind).
  • Deadpan Snarker: As befitting for a cynic.
  • Determined Defeatist: He doesn't think highly about himself and his powers, but nevertheless he will never give up in his goal to fight for justice and protect Yu-Na. It is shown in his fight against War Dragon, who is clearly more powerful than he could ever hope to be. Yet, he refused to stand down, despite the fact that he knew his defeat was certain.
  • Dual Wielding: He favors dual wielding axes.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Is wary of becoming a fanatic, a very kind of person he hates the most. Shame. His Evil Counterpart is precisely a fanatic.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: Yes, he is bitter and hurt, but that doesn't deter him from fighting for justice.
  • Lighter and Softer: Compared to Herald of Death (who is a bit of an edgelord), Joseph Stark of previous RP.
  • Personality Powers: It's quite a complicated case with Joseph. While the power that stems from will may not fit well with pessimistic Joseph (in fact, it does hinder his powers). However, Determined Defeatist is still a Determinator. There is a reason why his EM (Emotional Manifestation) is Will, not Apathy or Fear.
  • Pragmatic Hero: Dog is fully willing to use some dirty means to defeat villains.
  • Secret Identity: He is very insistent on keeping it secret.
  • Vigilante Man: His character at core.
  • Violence Is the Only Option: His stance on supervillains. While Joseph doesn't believe in killing them, he thinks that negotiating with them is absurd at best and idiotic at worst, believing that they would betray at any given moment.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Joseph is pretty weak in terms of power, but he makes it up with his skill.

Red Riding Hood (AKA Ko Yu-Na)

  • Action Girl: Obviously.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Yu-Na used to be an avid fangirl for superheroes in general, but did not expect to become one. After her rebirth, however, she starts her career with The Venom Dog. Not exactly the best place to start, but better than nothing.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Her powers are related to death, but she is a good person who tries to be a superhero.
  • The Cape: Aspires to be this, and (mostly) has a right mindset for that.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Has some shades of this due to her resurrection.
  • Cute Bruiser: Yu-Na is... very little and short, but she packs up a punch.
  • Fairytale Motifs: Small (though she would object to that one) and optimistic just like a character she got her name from (and a red hood as a bonus). She's yet to confront wolves, though.
  • Genki Girl: Very excitable one, that's for sure.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite her endlessly cheerful and optimistic behaviors, she is deeply insecure about her powers (and, no, it can't be solved with one pep talk).
  • Our Zombies Are Different: And very healthy looking and very powerful (potentially) one at that.
  • Personality Powers: Mostly subverted with Yu-Na, because one of her powers is bringing despair. Not exactly Yu-Na's shtick.
  • Plucky Girl: In terms of determination, she is a more optimistic Joseph.
  • Revenant Zombie: She is mostly this, retaining her intelligence and memories from her pre-death life.
  • Super Form: "Wraith" form, which enables her to perform some crazy shit.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Contrary to her mentor, she just punches and shoots things. Nevertheless, those hits count.

     Witch Hazel and Misty Blackburn 

     Witch of the Camelot 

     Collateral 

Real name Ryan Brady, Collateral became his superhero identity instead of Atomix when he was the cause of a horrid disaster via his nuclear powers going out of control. As a result he is something of a pariah in the superhero community. However he is sponsored by Isaac Noble who seems want to bring him better PR.

  • '90s Anti-Hero: Has all of the aesthetics of one—tremendous muscles, long hair, a dark and cybernetic looking outfit, one pauldron, and dangerous powers.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Exploding and causing a massive nuclear mushroom cloud will do that.
  • Hurting Hero: He was already hurting pretty bad due to his past and the facts about his powers, but Matten's death, retgone and the way the world has started to align has brought this to the present instead of just the past.
  • I Love Nuclear Power: Has nuclear themed powers, and got them from a dangerous experiment his father conducted on him.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: He went from a skinny younger hero to a overmuscled anti-hero — signifying him becoming rougher and more physically inclined.
  • Omnicidal Neutral: Rejects the paths of both Dexter's Order and Azi Dahaka's Chaos, deigning to take both of them down along with the NJI Team.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Just ask his previous team. His powers are incredibly destructive, on top of the nuclear fallout involved in them.

    Magpie 
  • And I Must Scream: Her fate in the bad future. Killed over and over and over and over by energy-disrupting needles, keeping her from reforming... In an airless, floating prison in outer space.
  • Bigger on the Inside: Her hideaways.
  • Gentleman Thief: Well, she's a female, or appears to be, but you get the point.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Can be accessed through her top hat, pockets, etc.
  • Just Like Robin Hood: Her Modus Operandi is to target corrupt authorities, steal their stuff, and give it to the people that really need the resources.
  • Nice Hat: Her top hat.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's been around ever since people hated corrupt authorities, or so she says. Long enough to be Robin Hood, Goemon Ishikawa, and many other noble thieves... She still looks like she's ten years old, though.
  • Resurrective Immortality: When she "dies," she can reform from Emotional Energy.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: She can turn into her namesake.
  • Winds of Destiny, Change: One of her powers.

     The Son of the Sky 
  • Anti-Villain: Euranon is the most noble one out of the Foundation.
  • Blade on a Stick: His favored weapon is nigh-invisible spear.
  • Blood Knight: His greatest joy is battle. His power Bloodlust only worsens it.
  • Blow You Away: The Son uses element of air as his magic because of his nature as Air Dragon. With it, he can fly, cause whirlwinds and change weather.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Quite a loud fellow and can certainly back up his words in terms of strength.
  • The Dragon: Aside from being an actual dragon, The Son is the one that Owl trusts the most.
  • Friendly Enemy: He shows absolutely no signs of hostility towards enemies he fights.
  • The Heavy: Euranon does all the... heavy work for the Foundation.
  • Noble Demon: Aside from his constant lust for battle and commitment to the conquest of multiverse, Euranon is a pretty jolly guy. The best example is when he warned Will and Spirit about the bomb in the labs, despite having no reason to do so.
  • Noble Top Enforcer: As said multiple times, Euranon is the most virtuous of the villainous group.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: He is a half Asian dragon, being a son of a full-fledged dragon emperor.

     The Owl 

     Professor Rourke 

     Queen Mab 

     Replacement of Mankind 

     Salve 

     Vigil 

     Lieutenant Force 

Real name Rick Cannelle, he was a former friend of Ryan's who joined the armed forces mostly just to try and keep people off his back... but danger and constant adrenaline warped his personality. He became sociopathically fixated upon survival, exaggerating and enhancing his existing vices into one hell of a Moral Event Horizon crossing. He dodged jail time for this vile crime by being enhanced by government technology into an Energy Being. Now he hires his services out to anyone willing to have him.

  • All Men Are Perverts: Rick is all about sex - whether he attains it with consent or without.
  • Ax-Crazy: Somewhat better at hiding it than Major Force, his namesake, but once fighting breaks out his innate savagery comes out remarkably easily.
  • Energy Being: He technically isn't mortal any more - make him blow up and he reforms, slash him to pieces he puts himself back together. He's an entirely loathsome monster, and he cannot be put down for good.
  • Psycho for Hire: Emphasize for hire - Rick is a sadistic dirtbag of a human being with very present sadistic and hateful traits.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil:
    • Whatever he did in Afghanistan.
    • He also explicitly threatens to rape Layla before killing her, which provoked Magpie into trying to crush his throat.

     The Laughing Fox 

(AKA Yoko)

  • Fighter, Mage, Thief: The Glass Cannon to Salve's role as The Medic and Vigil's Lightning Bruiser.
  • Genki Girl: Yoko is incredibly enthusiastic and naïve despite being over 900 years of age, due to her learning process being severely stunted. She has a love for childish things, such as teddy bears, and an exaggerated hatred for baths and water. That being said, she does show her serious side occasionally, especially when her team is in danger.
  • Master of Illusion: Yoko lacks in her manipulation of foxfire, causing her to rely on illusionism, distraction, and mind tricks. Coupled with her Voluntary Shapeshifting powers, this makes her quite the stealth expert.
  • Split Personality: Due to her frustration at her stunted learning capabilities, Yoko started to develop a deep jealously for her siblings because of their greater success. In her attempt to prevent these feelings from escalating, she locked them away in the back of her mind. However, the feelings of jealousy festered and grew anyway, developing into a separate personality called Noboru. Noboru now has overtaken her male transformation, causing her to have to rely on only female forms.

     Malachite Shadow 

Real name: Brandon Line. A traumatized young teenager who found his way to acquiring a willpower attuned Weapon of Emotion Energy Manifestation, but rather than turning into a Batman like figure, he perverted the glove into becoming a tool of his campaign for revenge. Now, he creates horrifying abominations.

  • Creepy Child: Very young looking due to how skinny he is, and creepy.
  • Eldritch Abomination: His glove now gauntlet creates horrifying monsters - he commonly shoots whole streams of them at foes that seem to strip the flesh from their body.
  • Enfant Terrible: All of 14 and a stalker with a crush and killing mobsters for the death of his parents.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: The character.
  • Yandere: For Kirstin - the boy loves her more than sharks love blood.

     Dr. Zoom 

Real Name: Andrew Kincannon. Dr. Zoom is a mad figure - a supervillain speedster obsessed with art, making heroes become great... by means of torturing them and murdering them if they fail to live up to his expectations.

  • Ax-Crazy: A Mad Artist and murderous madman who carries around a kill list his employer gave him. He is all too happy to kill his way through heroes and villains alike.
  • Badass Finger Snap: How he unleashes his sonic booms. One of them was the coup de grace upon Red Bean.
  • Captain Ersatz: Several villainous speedsters informed him - Professor Zoom for the name, aspects of Zoom for the morality code, Inertia's faux-innocent looks...
  • Enemy Mine: Momentarily teamed up with the heroes to defend Easton from the Emperor's invading army. Well, can't have many heroic "pieces of art" if the Emperor gets his way...
  • Hero Killer: Murdered Dragon Lad while a Zombie Apocalypse was going on.
  • Make Them Rot: His powers seem to have a toxic effect on all those who are not him. Reaching through people while incorporeal has the effect of rotting them away.
  • Professional Killer: He kills superhumans and others for an unknown employer. He was even willing to slay Dragon Lad, someone implied to have not even had his twentieth birthday yet.
  • Super Speed: A villainous speedster, natch.

     Malefic 

A Kaydenite cyborg space vampire—no, really!—he is an ancient despot, torturer, murderer and "gourmet of the living." Malefic was cast out due to his overwhelming depravity, and possibly orchestrated several more disturbing events on Kayden before coming to Earth.

  • Cyborg: Again, this is a vampire who got turned into a cyborg by a virus.
  • Daywalking Vampire: Devouring pieces of the Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi's spectral form lets him go outside without fearing the sun.
  • Evil Makes You Monstrous: He was a bad customer before becoming a vampire, but it was after becoming a vampire and contracting that cybernetic disease that he became a monster.
  • Horror Hunger: He indicates he hungers for the essence of particularly exemplary meals - though he's entirely willing for a moment to just sink his fangs into someone normal for a quick drink.
  • Light 'em Up: Though in a Dark Is Evil way—his light is black, and can form into a lot of odd and frightening shapes.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: ...Self-explanatory, really...

     The Anti-Creator 

An indescribably old being that apparently ruled over what existed before creation. The Titans were his unwilling subjects, and he preyed upon and dominated their lives. All the way until they created the physical universe to escape him...a tactic that did not entirely work, as the Strange Energy Universe was created and within it was the Anti-Creator, now a robotic being wrought of metal. He schemed to escape the Gate of Gig forced upon his Universe, and expand his universe to absorb all others. He has already forced some worlds into his own...

  • And I Must Scream: What is mentioned in his intro? A throne composed of the writhing bodies of those who opposed him.
  • Antimatter: Just one of his options when it comes to deadly beams he can fire. He also has Dark Matter, Dark Energy, Strange Energy and others.
  • Came Back Strong: No Clipped Wing Angels here - everything he does no matter how deforming is an upgrade.
  • Came Back Wrong:
    • Outside Rok'n, when he brings things back to life with his powers, they don't come back as they were. They come back worse.
    • What he did to Mud Snake took her from a lesser villain into a horrific Eldritch Abomination more resembling some sort of grotesque Fell Beast.
  • Destroyer Deity: He is no less than a God of Destruction, Annihilation and Antimatter.
  • Dimension Lord: Of his Strange Energy Universe... and he wants to extend that dimension further.
  • Energy Being: His true nature, and what he was before the multiverse existed.
  • Hero Killer: Countless worlds, full of their own heroes, count him as their murderer, be it directly or through his proxies.
  • Legion of Doom: At the rate he's going reviving people, he's gathering a potent Legion Of Doom, at present to besiege Kayden.
  • Multiversal Conqueror: Both before there even WAS a multiverse, and after the multiverse existed.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: He desires to destroy everything and make it a part of his Strange Energy Universe through that.
  • Powered Armor: His new, robotic lease on life since physical matter became a thing.
  • Sadist: He has no need to oppress the Titans or anyone else, no requirement for belief, nor any imperatives. He just... wants to. Because he feels that's where life belongs. Beneath his heel.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Even after Kage took over, there is still a vibrant sense of humor. And to reference Adventure Time: "The Anti-Creator is not funny."

     The Forces of the Anti-Creator 

Stationary Pea

An evil alternate version of Jumping Bean, she started off similarly enough, but in a mission to defeat the Emperor by infiltrating his forces, she became more and more corrupted. Ultimately, she double-crossed both the Emperor and her own friends Black Wolf and Red Tiger, eating the Emperor's heart and skinning the latter. When her bean body began to decay, she opened the way for the Anti-Creator to invade, thus devastating her whole world to save her own skin.

  • Dark Is Evil: Uses Taotie derived magic, which Jumping Bean finds... alarming. This takes the form of an explosive prison of dark rods.
  • Evil Counterpart: A murderously insane version of Jumping Bean.
  • From a Single Cell: All that needs to exist is a mote of her, and she can regenerate from that.
  • Genuine Human Hide: She is literally wearing Black Wolf and Red Tiger from her world!
  • Psychopathic Manchild: She is basically a rampaging immature monster - she is obsessed with her basic needs: food, emotional satiation, and pleasing Daddy dearest.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Along with Nightmare Face. Even though she's wearing a mask, the things her eyes and facial tilt do suggest a perilously unstable psyche.
  • Rubber Man: She can extend and deform, being difficult to permanently damage.
  • Sadist: She loves inflicting pain on people and seeing the anguish of others.

Dread Mud Snake

A regenerated version of Mud Snake, combined with the upper torso of the dead Emperor, she now more resembles a more dragon-like Fell Beast of Tolkien's lore.

  • Breath Weapon: Can unleash a devastating Entropic Energy beam from her mouth.
  • It Can Think: One of the more powerful of the Anti-Creator's Generals, she cannot speak any more... but it's very obvious she can still think, as is obvious by her very much looking forward to sinking her teeth into the heroes, as well as planning out trying to rescue Rok'n.
  • Poisonous Person: Retains the poisonous fangs from mortal life.
  • Shock and Awe: Shoots lightning from the Emperor, fused into her horn.
  • Wind from Beneath My Wings: Uses tremendously powerful gale force winds simply by flapping her wings.

Connor O'Sullivan

A mad warrior from Ignatius' backstory - Connor obtained a sword from him and went on a rampage, slaying people who had made his life a living hell and then going on from there. Ignatius killed him by slashing out his throat...until the Anti-Creator brought him back to serve as a General. Now he uses a reforged Akutonari, and four vile spirits which support him.

  • Arch-Enemy: Ignatius. He still despises him for inflicting that miserable death on him and putting him in the clutches of a spiteful god.
  • Ax-Crazy: In the past by and large. By the present he still homicidally hates Ignatius, but seems to have become Bored With Ax-Crazy.
  • Master Swordsman: He didn't just sit on his ass in the Strange Energy Universe - he worked to complete his abilities as a swordsman, even working through the impediment of going from a right handed stance to a left handed stance.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Tells off Ignatius mere moments before he teleports home in a panic.
  • Reluctant Monster: Connor would not have chosen to attack Kayden or do much of any of that. He has however been forced into the Anti-Creator's service.
  • Shout-Out: Has Mad Enhancement as an ability. He also has Shirou's affliction from Heaven's Feel done as a sort of parody of his status as a "swordsman" by the Anti-Creator.

Galatea

A mysterious porcelain colored robot girl the Anti-Creator made as his ultimate weapon - at which point the massive scepter shaped antimatter bomb was dropped on Kayden, counting down, with Galatea levitating in alongside it. She is actually the top half of the Ophelia robot damaged by Zahhak, brought back and amplified by the Anti-Creator.

  • Anti-Villain: Galatea serves the Anti-Creator, but she is not a sadistic creature like Stationary Pea or a mad monster like Mud Snake. She voices regret she did not make it in time to save Rok'n, viewing him in a sympathetic light and even kissing his remains and trying to fulfill his desire...to destroy Kayden.
  • Attack Reflector: And a brutal sort - she can return the force of an attack at 120% of its original force. She can even redirect it - as was demonstrated horrifically on Kyxe.
  • Beam Spam: She can fire off her Dead Ring Beams this way.
  • Came Back Strong: She started off as one half of a direly damaged Ophelia, entombed in the ground. After a few amplifications and a new, incredibly powerful weapon, she's easily the strongest General of the Anti-Creator.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Even while fighting and blowing holes in people she's peaceful and serene.
  • The Dragon: Explicitly listed as the most powerful of all the Anti-Creator's underlings, and the one he actually entrusted the Kayden mission to.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Despite not being nearly as bad as some of the villains already out, she is this. The moment that Galatea descended from the rift, the Battle For Kayden went severely downhill for the Lurker's Team.
  • Light Is Not Good: Associated with white and gold. She is also the most powerful underling by far of the Anti-Creator.
  • Shout-Out: She has powers related to a number of famous villains and antagonists;
  • Sinister Scythe: Galatea carries one hell of a scythe - it is made of a metal that robs gods of their power, and is empowered further by the contradictory and opposed power of a Daeva and Yazata... combined into one Yin-Yang Bomb of an empowering gem. Even a glancing hit from Asphodel will hurt.

The Hozuki

Strange Eldritch Abominations living in the Strange Energy Universe. While they aren't technically affiliated with him, the Anti-Creator occasionally throws them "relevant toys," and they actually do occasional things on his behalf.

  • Ambiguously Evil: Unlike the remarkably malevolent Winter Lanterns that inspired them, they don't seem to be naturally malicious, only attacking when attacked in turn.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Incredibly so. Simply looking at them hurts the eyes, and mundane people can only manage half a second or less before their head explodes from the sheer wrongness of their existence.
  • Hell Is That Noise: They... they sing. It's not a pleasant noise. Their singing is described as "cloying" and "decaying one's sanity."
  • Shock and Awe: Their eyes can fire off "primordial lightning," hinting at their true nature.

Others

     Isaac Noble 

Ryan Brady's benefactor and financial supporter of his return to heroism - Isaac leads a large tech company he inherited from his mother. Isaac has a rather odd characterization, seeming honorable in some ways but vengeful in others. He is however a charitable man involved with a lot of forward thinking.

  • Bi the Way: He makes out with and has sex with Kris offscreen, but is mentioned as having a girlfriend... by his boyfriend, who seems to be tracking the dates and times of Isaac's romantic involvements.
  • Charm Person: Helping out his business endeavors a great deal is his ability to charm and tilt the minds of those around him, possibly leaning into genuine mind control / More Than Mind Control.
  • Mr. Fanservice: A lot of Isaac's scenes show off his muscular form, and how attractive he is.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Isaac beat seven shades of tar out of a treacherous adviser for a severe betrayal of his company, in a replacement for a standard firing.
  • Parent with New Paramour: After his father died, his mother remarried to a much younger man. Isaac apparently responded by... seducing his stepfather. The two are currently in a perplexing relationship.

     The Eye And Its Day 

OCULUS

A mysterious mechanical entity often referred to as The Eye, which took over the Earth and conducted genocidal campaigns against nonhuman races, while intending to optimize humanity into a sort of perfected utilitarian fascist society ran by OCULUS.

  • Alien Invasion: Inverted - based on one part of the Bad Future, OCULUS assimilated the Chacker space ships and created a weapon called the Ion Ring using them.
  • And I Must Scream: In addition to what it did to Aldawin, there's what it did in its Bad Future to Ryan. Reducing him to literally nothing but a battery for its devices.
  • Bad Future: Brings one to being - taking over the world, optimizing humanity while denying any choice in the matter, killing anyone not interested in optimization, and slaying dragons and nonhumans such as the Yokai.
  • Body Horror: Special mention goes to what it did to Aldawin - even with his villainy in mind, few would deserve such a fate.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: What it does to heroes. For example, how it imprisoned Magpie and dealt with her unkillable nature - namely, imprisoning her in an airless floating prison and killing her again and again and again...
  • Killer Robot: It makes use of hordes of them - with the Garadholgs seeming to be the foot soldiers, and Cycle Readers being mind control agents that are capable overwriting and changing people's preferences and wants.
  • Robot War: Its Bad Future is set after one... where the robots won.
  • Totalitarian Utilitarian: Its driving motivation.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: It seems to want to optimize humanity for reasons like this. However due to the exact details, it looks much more like Dystopia Justifies the Means.
