The ones responsible for maintaining the Loops. Actual success rates tend to vary. The vast majority of Admins are actually based on real-life mythological deities, some more obscure than others.
The Admins as a Group:
- Being God Is Hard: Many of the Admins are shown to be heavily overworked trying to fix Yggdrasil, which expresses itself most clearly with Skuld, the Head Debugger.
- Dimension Lord: Not really used much because of how busy they are, but the Admins are multi-dimensional beings on a level far above that of even the Original Seven, and essentially The Omnipotent within the Loops due to their Reality Warper powers.
- Evil Versus Oblivion: The Event that caused the Loops to be necessary for reality to survive led to an "All hands on deck" scenario - since failing would mean they died as well, even the gods seen as evil are willing to help with the repairs.
- God Is Good: Some of the more reasonable Admins are this, and they are often thought of well by their Loopers.
- Jerkass Gods: Some of the Admins fall under this category, on the other hand.
- Me's a Crowd: According to a snippet from Madoka's perspective, the Admins can create Avatars inside a Loop while their main self still exists in the Hub, and be aware of what both are doing.
TyrThe current Head Admin (official job title: Almighty) of Yggdrasil. Is missing his right hand due to an old incident involving him defending Fenrir from persecution from the other Aesir... and Fenrir misinterpreting the situation.
- Badass in Charge: As a God of Courage, this shouldn't come as any surprise.
- The Ghost: Rarely seen, only slightly less rarely invoked. The guy is presumably very busy.
- Hook Hand: Averted. Tyr has replaced his missing hand with nothing. He doesn't need to.
Head of the Norse Pantheon.
- Sink-or-Swim Mentor: felt that if he actively intervened on his Anchors' behalf during the crash it could only be taken the wrong way.
- Ignored Expert: Gave the Watchers, who are Loop aware, a heads-up on what was going on, telling them not to worry. They decided to break their non-interference vow and make sure everything followed the original course of history, even trying to threaten Thor into giving them the information they wanted. He just distracted them and let the Loop run out.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Is responsible for the Goat Simulator loops, along with Hercules.
- One Steve Limit: Averted, but he's obviously not that same as that Thor. He tends to refer to himself as The Real Thor to avoid this.
Trickster god, parent of at least four other Admins.
- Big, Screwed-Up Family: The father of a giant wolf (Fenrir), a massive serpent (Jörmungandr), a half-zombie (Hel), and the mother of an eight-legged equine god (Sleipnir). And those are just the confirmed children.
- Mr. Seahorse: Again, Sleipnir's mother. He's understandably annoyed when Sleipnir brings this up.
- Troll: Wouldn't be much of a trickster if he wasn't.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting/Gender Bender: In case anyone was actually wondering how a normally male god became the mother of an equine deity. Sleipnir likes teasing Loki about this.
Son of Loki; an eight-legged horse. More friendly with his Loopers than most of the admins.
- Drowning My Sorrows: After saving Twilight from an utterly horrible Loop.
- The Gadfly: Enjoys teasing Loki about being his mom.
- Large and in Charge: By pony standards, the guy's freaking huge. And as Big Mac can attest, he makes most beings that look at him feel cosmically small.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: One of the more calm and levelheaded of the admins. Is also willing to wade into a bad Loop if absolutely necessary to save Twilight from it.
- So Proud of You: Is very proud of and grateful to the Equestrian Loopers for declaring their Loop a sanctuary and saving Leah Clearwater's sanity, and thus the stability of the Twilight loops.
Son of Loki; an incredibly large wolf. Unlike most Admins, tends to get involved with his Loopers on a regular basis.
- Adaptational Heroism: In the original mythology, Fenrir is destined to eat Odin at Ragnarok, and is just generally bad news. This guy is actually pretty nice (when the job isn't getting to him).
- Butt-Monkey: Has a chronic case of bad luck.
- Interspecies Romance: With Liberty.
Daughter of Loki; half alive and half dead.
Son of Loki; a giant sea serpent. Devised the coding that allows certain kinds of time travel.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: Once complained he was bored, which Loki took as an excuse to refer his kid to his bosses.
- Character Tics: Eats his tail when stressed or nervous. He once threatened to eat himself whole, though whether he could actually manage this is unclear.
- Got Volunteered: How he views Loki handing his résumé over to the higher-ups, since it meant he'd be made to work on everything time-travel related forever.
The Norns (Urd, Bellandy, and Skuld)
- Cute Bruiser: Skuld still has her appearance from the Ah! My Goddess world. She is also The Omnipotent Reality Warper within the Loops, has a large hammer she is willing to use, and a enormous temper if she's pissed.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Skuld gets increasingly angry as the Loops go on. Probably because her workload keeps increasing.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Skuld can be very rude and angry due to stress from her job, but Skuld has a good heart underneath, even if it's rarely seen. See the following entry for details.
- Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: After the ending of , Jack's Admin Shuo-Hsing personally appears to Jack, brings all of his friends from the future to his wedding, and revives Ashi despite her being Retgoned. Afterwards, Skuld has the following conversation with him that establishes her Jerk with a Heart of Gold status.Skuld: "You know that you are considerable trouble, right?"Shuo-Hsing: "I know."Skuld: "You know that we have rules against what you did, right?"Shuo-Hsing: "I know."Skuld: "We cannot do this for every Looper because that would strain Yggdrasil too much."Shuo-Hsing: "I know."Skuld: "Good. Here is the list of fused loops I have prearranged for that girl of yours to go visit after you Activate her."Shuo-Hsing: "I... what?"
ZeusSleazy politician, usually off making another conquest rather than doing his actual job. Nominally the head of the Olympians.
- Jerkass Gods: Ho, boy is he ever. When Hephaestus tries to get in contact with him for something seriously important, he only gets Zeus' answering machine. When he actually gets around to answering his son's calls, he still acts like a colossal dick, while Hephaestus and Hermes are fighting to keep the Megaverse from being Retgone.
- Also claims to be the Admin for the Prototype Loops, which is actually Apollo's job.
- And there's his hiding a massive stash of porn in Sleipnir's terminal, causing the Molestia Loop.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A very, very small one, but it is there. If you squint. He has a soft spot for Hecate, and treats his Adminship of Disney/Hercules with actual dignity, keeping his Rated-R antics away from it.
- Also, in a (debatably-canon) snippet, he says that one of the options for repairing Yggdrasil at the end involves wiping the memories of all the Loopers to complete the repairs, and makes it very clear that he in no way supports that option.
- He made it a point to warn Ganesha, Tama and Thoth about a Punishment Loop that the Keres had been planning on testing out for a while. It was a well founded warning given what they were using.
- Oh, Crap!: His reaction to being anywhere near Nyx (the god, not the pony), with whom he apparently has a history.
- Really Gets Around: Which conveniently keeps him away from his desk for long periods of time.
- Sleazy PoliticianZeus's Answering Machine: Remember to vote Zeus in any and all upcoming elections!
HeraGoddess of marriage, women and birth. Is not exactly the nicest being around.
- Abusive Parents: It's strongly implied that both she and Zeus were this to Hephaestus.
- The Ghost: Hasn't been seen, to the extent that it's not known which Loops she presides over.
HestiaGod of the hearth and home, cursed with being the responsible sibling, but still impeccably polite.
- Cool Big Sis: For much of the Olympians, bar Zeus and Aphrodite.
- Kindly Housekeeper: Comes from being a Goddess of the Home.
- Playing with Fire: Goddess of the Hearth, remember? Usually manifests in a proper hearth-like manner of warmth and caring, but sometimes people need a painful reminder that it's still fire...
- Silk Hiding Steel: Spends most of her time keeping an eye on the other Olympians, but will put her foot down if they go too far out of line. Or if they use strong language, to Pandora's displeasure.
Greek Goddess of Wisdom and warfare. After Ares approved Sovereign for Looping, she was assigned jurisdiction of the Mass Effect Loops.
- Lady of War: Well, she is a war god, after all.
- Only Sane Woman: Among the majority of the Olympians. Regrettably, this isn't saying much.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Well, she can't be much worse than Ares.
- Spot of Tea: Enjoys tea, drinking the equivalent of as much sake as Urd does to get blackout drunk.
- The Stoic: It takes a lot to get under her skin
Son of Zeus and Hera; craftsman of the Greek pantheon. An overworked Admin often hailed as the go-to tech guy besides Ganesha. He has his work cut out for him.
- Bodyguard Babes: Has several Valkyries acting as his parole officers, but they're willing to protect him from his ex-wife, who isn't very popular among any of the Aesir.
- Determinator: Throws his everything into keeping the Mega Man loop intact, even as the situation goes completely FUBAR.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Hardly a surprise then that his Loops usually have something to do with technology in some shape or form.
- No Respect Guy: Tends to get the short end of the stick from most of his fellow gods (Zeus and Hera being the worst), and foisted with the jobs no-one else wants.
- Rage Breaking Point: His estranged wife and either of his parents for the most part. Plus the fact that he's a volcano god suggests that he's got one epic temper when he loses it.
- Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: Had a helping hand in getting the Terminator universe to Loop, by giving Twilight Sparkle some leeway.
Greek goddess of love and Hephaestus' estranged wife. It's implied that the only reason they're still married is that she spitefully refuses to divorce him. Which explains an awful lot.
- Drama Queen
- The Friend Nobody Likes: It's yet to be seen if there is actually anyone outside of Ares who even tolerates her.
- Jerkass Gods: Tends to spend much of her time being petty and lazy, and misuses office equipment to send spam to other Admins. The Valkyrie openly want to kill her because of this, and a dozen other reasons. Her spamming antics also endangered the existence of the Mega Man and Sonic Loops.
- Laser-Guided Karma: Fand once put a spell on her, changing her skin color to whatever she last ate. Said thing was Madoka's cherry on her sundae.
- Professional Slacker: It's been said that the reason she's in charge of Eiken is because the safe-mode universe is so stable that it pretty much runs itself, and that her Admin employee profile lists an allergy to work.
- Woman Scorned: Even if she doesn't like Hephaestus, she still took his rejection badly.
Greek God of violent warfare. The guy (formerly) in charge of the Mass Effect Loops. He and Aphrodite have a thing.
- Broken Tears: He once got the Loop of I Wanna Be the Guy to run it's full course. However, The Kid died from an "end credit" event in the final moments and the Loop failed to initialize. The try was somewhere in the trillions.
- Determinator: He stuck with trying to get I Wanna Be the Guy, and eventually succeeded.
- Reassigned to Antarctica: After he approved Sovereign for looping (the eligibility being due to a system bug), he was reassigned to trying to get the universe of I Wanna Be The Guy looping. Which apparently requires The Kid to complete a baseline run on Impossible level without the benefit of any foreknowledge. Or extra lives. Failed activation attempts were in the billions last time anyone checked.
- And after he finally managed to get it looping, he was stuck on Dwarf Fortress.
- Yank the Dog's Chain: After finally succeeding to get I Wanna Be The Guy Looping, he was moved over to Dwarf Fortress to get it Looping. He's noticeably less put off by this one.
God of speed, messengers, travel, thieves, doctors, and many others.
- Jack-of-All-Trades: The patron god of pretty much anything and anyone that travels, making for a rather comprehensive skillset even if he isn't the divine master of any of them.
- Hospital Hottie: Has several trained nymphs around.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Doesn't like risking his Loopers, or sending them to Eiken.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Appropriate for a god of messengers and travel. Among other things, he arranged for Hephaestus's parole officers (assigned because of the latter's unfortunate involvement in The Crash) to be a trio of hot Valkyries who find quality armorers to be sexy.
Goddess of wild animals, hunting and maidens. Compared to other admins, she is somewhat more upfront with her first loop's anchor Alan Grant, usually to complain when he gets eaten. Eventually, she broke the rules big-time by tampering with a certain tyrannosaurus rex's coding and was punished for it, losing her rights to activate Loopers (without such activations being confirmed by another Admin, at least) and being forced to share an office with the Celtic goddess Ardwinna.
- Decon-Recon Switch: Describes the Jurassic and Prehistoric Park loops this way, comparing them to Evangelion and Gurren Laggan, respectively. Alan doesn't get it.
- Grumpy Bear: She's pretty cranky a lot of the time, especially after Skuld punishes her for her efforts to make her Loops more "interesting" by tampering with Roxy's code when she activated her.
- Pet the Dog:
- Allows Alan to have a peaceful loop for a change after he helps her get the Prehistoric Park Loop running.
- Following the events that led to her getting an assistant, she was on the receiving end of this when Ardwinna, in an effort to help her, gets Artemis' old companion Orion assigned to their office as well.
- Punishment Detail: For violating the rules by tampering with Rexy/Roxy's code, she was stripped of her rights to activate Loopers and assigned an assistant (Ardwinna, Celtic goddess of animals) to activate Loopers in her place, and is stuck with both restrictions until she manages to get all seven kids (Lex and Tim Murphy, Jess Harding, Kelly Malcom, Eric Kirby, and Zach and Gray Mitchell) from the Jurassic Park branch Looping.
God of Light and the Sun as well as prophecy. Artemis' twin brother, and annoyingly self-assured.
- Big Brother Instinct: The background discussion of Apollo's character suggests that one hurts his twin sister Artemis at their own peril.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Apollo may act the fool, but when something serious happens, he gets serious too.
- The Ditz: Apollo... ain't exactly all there.
- Dumbass Has a Point: Suggests a way to get the Mega Man Battle Network universe Looping to Hephaestus, and it works. Hephaestus is suitably embarrassed.
- The Thing That Would Not Leave: Sets up camp in Hephaestus's office during his attempts to get Battle Network Looping, and doesn't leave.
- Third-Person Person: The mighty Apollo does this a lot. Much to Hephaestus's continuing frustration.
Primordial Goddess of Discord and daughter of fellow primordial Nyx.
- It Amused Me: Her sole reason for activating the Postal loops, with The Postal Dude as the anchor.
- Mythology Gag: Fittingly, for the god of Discord, she's in charge of a Loop which seems to be hard-wired with the Conflict Ball (The Red Dwarf Loop and the Postal loop).
God of Good Dreams, son of Hypnos and thus grandson of Nyx. Looks and acts a lot like another Morpheus.
- Black Eyes of Evil: His eyes are labelled as completely pitch black. Averted otherwise, in that's he's a good guy. Well... goodish.
- Fatal Flaw: Pride. He's too proud to admit he might need help getting the DC'verse Looping, and it costs him two Anchor candidates. It also gets Zeus incredibly angry with him.
- I Gave My Word: Said he'd get the DC universe looping, and refuses to back down, even when it's suggested setting it to Read-Only might be the better option, though this is again out of pride and stubbornness.
- Never Recycle Your Schemes: A non-villainous example. Morpheus isn't one for analysing what went wrong, and therefore when the first Fused Loop attempt with the DC 'verse fails, he simply discards Fused Loops as an option entirely.
- Odd Friendship: Somehow managed to become friends with Madoka after she Ascended.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Implied, given aforementioned friendship with Madoka.
PhobetorGod of Nightmares. One of Hypnos' sons.
- The Ghost: Mentioned, not by name, by Morpheus during DC's activation attempt.
Titaness of Justice. Tends to be a bit 'hands-on' with villains, much to the annoyance of Skuld.
- Jerkass Has a Point: She'll only make use of her Mind Rape method if she can give a valid justification for doing so.
- Mind Rape: Tends to set up villain Loopers to repeatedly experience the worst parts of their lives as an initial punishment. Once they've 'served their sentence', she sets them up to Loop normally.
- When applying this method to Penelope, Themis set her to repeatedly experience her defeat as a member of LeParadox's gang, with no real time to prevent what happens in Baseline.
- Applying this method to Neyla resulted the Looper experiencing her time as Clock-La, and left a lasting impression considering Neyla's reactions to Cyborgs.
- Small Reference Pools: The one responsible for suggesting her for the Admin position originally had no idea that she even existed.
- The Extremist Was Right: In both known cases, the looper became well-adjusted after therapy from the other Loopers.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Her Mind Rape method is not liked by the other Admins, hence the use only if valid justification
The first woman, created by the Greek pantheon to punish humanity for the actions of the Titan Prometheus. She tends to spend much of her time not actually paying attention to problems, but rather watching the antics of her Loopers.
- Break the Cutie: When Ultra Magnus led the non-reversed Transformers to the Universal Killswitch, Pandora broke down completely.
- Genius Ditz: Has the occasional attention span problem, but she's good at handling chaotic Loops.
- Happily Adopted: Considers Hephaestus and Athena her parents, in a roundabout sense. Hephaestus at least reciprocates.
- Perky Goth
- Precision F-Strike: During the Link Joker incident.
NyxPrimordial God of Darkness and the Night, Hypnos' mother, Morpheus' grandmother, and former Admin. She doesn't get on with Zeus.
- By the Lights of Their Eyes: Her eyes are always visible, regardless of the rest of her. Probably because her eyes look like (or are) stars.
- Cool Old Lady: The "old" part definitely applies, as she notes she was around long before Zeus was born, and she manages to, ah, convince him to change his mind on giving Morpheus another chance.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: Someone associated with darkness and the night, who can appear and disappear without being noticed... and note that Morpheus declined to make Batman the anchor of the DC Loops for some reason...
- The Dreaded: Applies only for Zeus. He's terrified of her. Considering she can drag him about with ease, there might be a reason for that...
- The Faceless / Face Framed in Shadow: Alternates between the two, as the shadows that surround her shift depending on her mood.
- Mysterious Past: Exactly how an Admin "retires", especially with Yggdrasil's situation, is unclear. What caused Zeus to be afraid of her in the first place is unclear. It's implied she was forced to retire as well.
- One Steve Limit: Obviously not that same as that other Nyx.
- Perpetual Smiler: Near-constantly smiling. It's just not always a nice one.
- Stealth Hi/Bye: Manages to get into Hephaestus's office without him even noticing, even though he's apparently in line of sight of the door.
- The Older Immortal: All the Admins are immortal, and she's apparently older than most.
- Mythology Gag: Janus is the god of doorways and passages, things that come up a lot in both Kingdom Hearts and Portal.
- Cool and Unusual Punishment: She's fond of them.
- The Dreaded: Nobody wants to earn her punishments, not after what she did to Zeus when he tried to put the moves on her.
- Revenge Before Reason: Subverted: as vengeful as she is, she's reasonable enough to inflict proportionate punishment to the sinners, and abort it if she finds out they're innocent.
- Winged Humanoid
- I Need a Freaking Drink: After a close scare in the Mario loops during the Crisis.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: As much as they stress her out, Hecate does care about her loopers. She doesn't get mad after Mario snaps on her during a close scare with Dimentio during the Crisis, as well as apologizing for giving Porky Minch ideas to mess with the loopers during the same event.
Ancient Egyptian God of knowledge, magic, science and the judgement of the dead.
- Magi Babble: Part of his idiolect.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Accidentally caused the Яeverse Incident while trying to activate the Cardfight! Vanguard Loops.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: The worse the situation is, the more brief and concise he gets in his speech. Highlights include the unplanned activation of VRAINS and his one-word note to Atem, who promptly freaks out.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Prone to these, to the confusion of most of his loopers. Only Yuto can follow him, leading to the others using him as a translator.
- Techno Babble: Noticing a pattern?
Egyptian Goddess of the skies.
- Celestial Body: She is a sky goddess.
- The Ghost: Hasn't appeared in any loops, and is implied to be unknown even to her loopers (Which, considering their age, is rather surprising). She finally made an appearance after Sayaka Miki's brief appearance in loop.
- I Work Alone: Prefers this.
- "No. Just... No" Reaction: Her view on the possible looping status of either Palpatine or the Sith Emperor.
The god of alcohol and music. Frequently falls off the wagon, resulting in rather odd variant loops for the loopers.
- Achievements in Ignorance: During a drunken bender, he accidentally Activated the Old Spice Duo as Travelling Loopers, paving the way towards the long winded, but eventual healing of Ad Space.
- The Alcoholic: Which is why variants of the Loops he oversees are so weird.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Frequently shows he has a good heart despite being brash and an alcoholic, and shows that deep down, he really does care for the loops he oversees and the loopers who are in them. For example, he permanently altered the Legendverse baseline so Cynder could have a better chance of escaping becoming the Terror of the Skies, despite doing such things being big no-no in the admin circle.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite being an alcoholic and a bit of a jerk, he is willing to listen to his loopers complaints and try to help anyway he can.
The dwarf god, worshipped as a protector of households (especially mothers, children and childbirth) and later as the defender of everything good and the enemy of all that is bad. Originally a part of the Justice Department as the equivalent of a mortal beat cop (his duties were mainly scaring away Mythos hackers or other troublemakers), he decided he wanted to work closer with mortals and signed on with Janus after the Mega Man: Inside Out event.
- Gonk: He's well-known for (and proud of) his ugliness, having been voted ugliest god ten eons straight and counting.
- Nightmare Face: He can make himself even uglier when needed, which he typically does when he needs to scare away troublemakers like the Mythos Hackers. It even scares Janus, his new boss, when he demonstrates.
Egyptian God of the moon.
- Almighty Janitor: Implied but not actually shown. Prior to being given Adminship of Freelancer, it's strongly implied his entire job for the history of the Loops has been to put out minor fires and help fix things in the behind the scenes areas of Yggdrasil.
- Remember the New Guy?: As with a lot of Admins prior to their first appearance, and partially because of the other reasons listed here, his introduction has minor shades of this.
- The Ghost: Formerly and still intermittently. His first regular appearance was to clarify his existence as the Admin for Freelancer, which had already been looping for some time by that point. And even prior to that, he's supposedly been around for a good portion of the Loops in a support role and yet wasn't mentioned even once.
The Celtic Queen of the Fairies. More than a little ship-crazy.
- The Dog Bites Back: Fand, after getting tired of Aphrodite's behavior, put a spell on her that changes her skin tone of whatever she last ate. This was apparently in response to her stealing the last coffee.
- Flight: She has wings.
- Genius Ditz: Yes, she's obsessed with shipping. She's also competent enough to handle a loop with multiple corrupted baselines and predict the Mythos Hackers eons in advance without breaking a sweat.
- Locked in a Freezer: All the time as a punishment for when she goes too far with her attempts to ship her coworkers. It doesn't seem to slow her down much.
- Nice to the Waiter: In spite of her obsession with her shipping charts, Fand is remarkably kind for an Admin, congratulating and rewarding her charges for their achievements.
- Not Me This Time: Due to the trope below, she's often blamed for most relationships, even the ones that she had zero hand in or even actively made a detriment to.
- Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: While never explicit, Fand has a tendency to do what she feels is the right thing with little regard for what anyone else will think.
- Shipper on Deck: Oh so very much.
- Squick: A frequent in-universe response to some of her ideas for ideal relationships.
- Pet the Dog: In an effort to help Artemis get better, she got Artemis' old companion Orion assigned to their office as well.
Gaulish God of Tribal Protection.
- Brass Balls: Willing to stand up to an angry Skuld and tell her that she was wrong about what could happen if the Link Joker ever got out... right after it just happened. While he was still an Assistant to Thoth.
- Kicked Upstairs: Of the "First Time We See Him" variant. Used to be part of IT, but something happened and he became Thoth's intern... until a Virus from Vanguard got loose. After activating the full loop and Aichi beating Link Joker, he became the Admin for the new Loop. So it might have happened twice.
- Reassigned to Antarctica: What said internship was intended to be, since the Admins' interns tend to get some of the worst work.
Creator deity of Zurvanism (a branch of Zoroastrianism) and God of infinite time and space. He figured out how to get Doctor Who Looping.
- Determinator: Set out to get Doctor Who looping, and succeeded.
- Mythology Gag: A literal version. Zurvan was a god of infinite time and space, so who else is better to look after the universe with Time Lords in it?
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Whatever means he took to make sure the Doctor's regenerations were fixed also means the Tenth Doctor is always nearly killed by a Dalek. To his credit, Zurvan does try to get that one fixed.
Hindu deity of writing.
- Beleaguered Assistant: Sort of one to Zeus: the Greek god just dumps his work on Ganesha.
- Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: Has a few, usually when realizes exactly what he's getting into.
- Informed Attribute: Ganesha is never actually shown coding, but the fact that he came up with an entirely new Anchor system and helms one of the most problematic loops in the multiverse speaks for itself.
- No Indoor Voice: He's an elephant god. He's loud.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Doesn't indulge every request that his loopers through his way, but does stay in contact and throws them a bone every now and again.
- Reasoning with God: As a god of writing, he can see when people address letters to him, and respond accordingly.
- Barbie Doll Anatomy: Is described as such. As a result, they do not wear clothes, much to Skuld's dismay.
- Naked People Are Funny: Played with: Monad apparently refuses to wear clothes, but since they have nothing to show, it doesn't matter.
- Pronoun Trouble: Due to lacking any gendered traits, the other Admins (and by extension, the readers) refer to Monad with the singular "they."
Marianne (Lady Liberty)
French personification of victory and freedom. Currently dating Fenrir.
- Interspecies Romance: With Fenrir, who is a giant wolf.
- Historical In-Joke: Women dressing as Marianne wear red hoods as part of the costume (the rest of the costume is blue and white- it's supposed to simulate the French flag).
- Nice Girl: Nice enough to date the biggest, baddest wolf in the Multiverse - and cares deeply for him. Though she's not above teasing him by wearing a red hood when they're on a date.
- Odd Job God: She's the French personification of victory; it comes with the job description.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Like most Admins, she helps keep Yggdrasil stable and running.
A female calico cat who gained fame for being a station master and operating officer at Kishi Station on the Kishigawa Line in Kinokawa, Wakayama, Japan. When she died in the Hub, the power of human belief caused her spirit to Ascend and become an Admin from the Shinto pantheon, rather than merely passing on to the afterlife.
A Chinese woman who successfully raised five dragons and became a goddess for it.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Her actual name is Wen Shi, but everyone calls her "Longmu", meaning "Mother Dragon".
- Team Mom: She's apparently this to her Loopers.
A minor African deity and debugger for Yggdrasil. Best known for almost causing the Tyranids to loop when he mistook Fenrir's code-checking list as a list of potential loopers, and started them all looping.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: His actions caused the Crisis.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He slipped into Fenrir's office and almost got a Tyranid to loop, which would have been a disaster because Tyranids are a Hive Mind whose only purpose is to eat and grow- they'd be shoo-ins for MLE status and if even one Tyranid is Awake, they all are.
- It gets worse. That one instance later led to a virus uploading and spreading through several branches that was guaranteed to randomly start anyone looping that was still alive at the end of the loop, meaning any villains could have started looping. The Admins sent a notice to Anchors about this, leaving them to kill anyone who could have been dangerous had they started looping and that descriptor wasn't just limited to villains. And despite all those precautions a few of said characters still began looping.
- What an Idiot!: He's the African god of incompetence. Literally.
The African deity who was formerly self-assigned to watch the Mirakihari branches.
- The Atoner: His original portfolio pre-Loops was as the "rebel" or "evil" god. He's doing his best to make up for his reputation.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Kept his Avatar inside the Mitakihara branch as Madoka was Ascending, to prevent the complete destruction of the Branch. He didn't die, but he was sent into a coma until the time the Branch was restored. He's apparently been hospitalized as a result.
The protector god of Tokyo.
- Deity of Human Origin: He was a human in the middle ages who gave his life to protect Tokyo.
- Determinator: This guy will do anything he can to stabilise the Amala loops, no matter what. Given that Amala is the most damaged branch since the Mega loops, and easily houses some of the most dangerous entities in the loops, that's saying something.
- Informed Flaw: In one of his loops, Masakado says that he's not good at programming, as there weren't any computers by the time he died. Well, by the time we saw him again, he got good.
Tu Di Gong
God of wealth and merit.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite wanting them to learn it for themselves, he does tell his looper who their anchor is and, due to how shocking it was, promised all of them vacation loops in the future if they took it well.
The only Admin who isn't based on any god, goddess or mythological figure. Madoka was tricked into ascending by Kyubey, destroying the Loop she was the Anchor for.
In recent times, thanks to the help of Skuld and the friends she has within the Admins, she was able to reactivate her home loop, placing Sayaka Miki as the new Anchor, while not erasing her mistake, allowing her to return to her self-imposed role as the Goddess Madoka.
- Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: What she did just before breaking her Loop, by accident.
- Badass Adorable: She's a god who comes in the form of a fourteen year old girl, with a preference for wearing pink.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: A lot of the other Admins are decidedly frosty towards her. Hephaestus meanwhile is acting as a mentor toward her, and she's managed to become a friend with Morpheus, the Admin for the DC Loops. Hecate also likes her for helping take away some of the stress of her job.
- It's Personal: More than anyone else in the Loop, she has the most reason to despise Kyubey.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: She didn't set out to break her universe, or damage Yggdrasil.
- Rage Breaking Point: Didn't quite make it, but she was close to reaching it when she had a long string of bad luck during The Great Coffee Shortage, to the point where she threatened her boss over cutting in line.
- You Can't Go Home Again: Even after restoring her universe, due to her ascension to becoming the LITERAL Goddess Madoka, she cannot return to her loop ever, and can only meet her friends face-to-face on administrative tasks.
- Sleipnir: They're the 4Chan of Yggdrasil!
A collection of rogue hackers and viruses based around the Lovecraftian Mythos (and other popular Eldritch Abominations). Not actually Admins, but often beings on the same level. It's a little unclear as to whether they're beings the Mythos was based on, grew (and Ascended) out of the Mythos's popularity, or minor Admin-level entities who decided to adopt identities from the Mythos. Possibly a combination given how many there are.
- Attention Deficit Oh Shiny: They got off track over the idea of Activating Springtrap over tacos, of all things. Naturally, they blame Slenderman.
- Butt-Monkey: Slenderman, who gets the short end of the stick more often than not.
- Bullying the Dragon: Cthulhu went around to make attack on Loopers, trying to drive them mad... And succeeded with Harry Dresden, whose admin is Nemesis. Needless to say, he pays for it.
- Collective Identity: Above and beyond being known as a group, there's some uncertainty if there's only one entity posing as any given Mythos manifestation (ex. Cthulhu) or several trying to claim the identity. That said, they're exactly like 4chan, in that they're more than happy to mock each other when they either fail, or they're angry for some trivial reason.
- Epic Fail: The quote above is rather apt. While they're powerful in their own right, more than once have they screwed up their plans, especially Slenderman, who manages to stabilize an Anchor rather than the opposite, more than once. At one point, when he messed with a Fused Loop between Inside Out and Mega Man, he got caught, chased and eventually run over by a train summoned by Tama. Cthulhu also ended up failing when he decided to handle Squidward's Baseline. That ended with Patrick slicing off his mouth tentacles with a razor. Needless to say, No Sympathy for either.
- Put on a Bus to Hell: Slenderman, after one too many attempts to destabilize Yggdrasil, was caught and punished harshly, and is now residing in Maharaurava for all eternity. The other Mythos Hackers are grateful for Nemesis.
- Troll: Pretty much all of them to pretty much everyone and everything else (including each other).
- With Friends Like These...: Not a cohesive group by any stretch of the imagination. It seems the Mythos Hackers are just as entertained by watching each other fail as watching anyone else.
An admin level being who appears on occasion, running Yggdrasil's cafeteria and break rooms. Where it came from is a mystery.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Normally chill, but if you provoke it, it crashes your loop and you get stuck in a 4 Kids variant loop along the lines of their One Piece dub.
