Characters / The Order: Major Members

Go To

These are the members of the order who rank highly within the organisation. These characters represent the main threats to the Multiversers within The Order's numbers.


Non-Scripted Beings

    The Author 

"I am the Author of all your pain."
The Author during Michael's first encounter with him.

The Author is a mysterious entity that is responsible for the incident known as The Outbreak which involved a number of evil creatures from different worlds being unleashed onto a non-scripted version of Earth. This makes him directly and indirectly responsible for the deaths of several of the future Multiversers. Nothing is known about him currently other than his status as a Greater-Scope Villain.


Tropes Relating to The Author:

  • Black Cloak / In the Hood - In his first appearances, his identity has always been concealed by a thick black cloak with an obscuring hood.
  • Chess Master - Unleashed an army of scripted monsters and armies onto Outbreak!Earth, supposedly to kill Michael. However, one has to wonder if that truly was his plan, or if he has a larger scheme at work...
  • Create Your Own Hero - His actions on Outbreak!Earth led to the creation of several Multiversers, especially his future archnemesis Michael Verser.
  • Emerging from the Shadows - Likes to do this for dramatic effect, and when he wants to keep his identity a secret for the worlds he goes to. Ties into his status as a Greater-Scope Villain when he gives others instructions to hurt/kill the Multiversers, or gives them the means to do so.
  • Face Framed in Shadow - He usually converses with others in the shadows when speaking face to face, or when wearing obscuring dark clothes, in order to keep himself hidden from those who he doesn't want to know who he is.
  • God Complex - In his first appearance in Michael's origin story, he displays a view of others being beneath himself, and that he believes himself to be a God.
  • Greater-Scope Villain - The Author did not seem to do any of the damage personally. He merely unleashed the evil creatures onto a non-scripted version of Earth and let them go about their business, only going out of his way to taunt the human who would eventually become Michael Verser, showing some connection he has to him.
  • Physical God - To the point of being able to stand toe-to-toe with the other Multiversers, anyway.
  • Villainous Friendship - Shares one with Walter Padick.
  • You Can't Fight Fate - He fully embraces the concept of Destiny, as first shown when he and Walter decide to hand Chana over to the Antiversers, knowing exactly what will occur once this happens. He even anticipates this.

    Satan Verser

    Ezran Verser 

Ezran is the pseudo-Antiverser counterpart to Alexis, and is completely devoted to knowledge, willing to kill to get it. The Author saw this and took advantage of his love for knowledge, promising him treasure troves of it if he worked for him. So he did, and he changed his appearance and name to create a new identity for himself.


Tropes Relating to Ezran Verser:

  • Abusive Parents - His father regularly beat him for small or imagined slights, and even for pursuing science instead of religion.
  • Big Bad - One of two characters to share this with Alexis Verser (the other being Tomie Kawakami), serving as a main antagonist for her stories.
  • Berserk Button
    • His father, whom he resembled and shared a name with. Mentioning either around him is likely to get you killed.
    • Anything related to religion is one to him, thanks to his upbringing.
  • Cultured Badass - An evil example. Acts as a Southern Gentleman most of the time, speaking clearly and precisely. He's also capable of killing a room full of people with nothing but a rapier.
  • Deal with the Devil - Dying after killing his father, The End contacted him to make him a deal: become one of its Antiversers, and he would have access to infinite knowledge. He accepted on the spot.
  • Deep South - Played with, as he lived in a rural town in the southern area of America in his youth back in the 1900's. He sure doesn't act like it, though; the only indication you will get is his southern drawl.
  • The Dragon - Acts as this to The Author, while serving as his agent in Nemesis.
  • Even Evil Has Standards - Due to his own history, Ezran abhors any kind of domestic abuse, to the point where he will step in and give the abuser a good thrashing.
  • Faux Affably Evil - He's described as "charming" and likable (when he wants to be), but underneath it all he's a vicious, cruel bastard.
  • Foil - To Alexis, the Aspect of Knowledge. She may have infinite knowledge at her disposal, but she has a set of morals to keep her from crossing the line. Ezran, viewing morality as a weakness, ravenously seeks all forms of knowledge and information that he can get his hands on, damn the consequences. This causes him to become The Rival to her. Also works to her being the "Goddess of Magic in the Multiverse"; he puts his faith more in science than in mysticism. Plus, he thinks of himself as a scientist, distancing himself from the idea of being anything resembling a "god".
    • Is a foil to Adam Verser, too. Both of them are examples of a Southern Gentleman, but unlike Adam, Ezran's actions belie a complete and utter bastard. In addition, unlike Adam, whose accent slips into a British one when he gets seriously pissed off (for fun), Ezran's devolves into a stereotypical Southern drawl (a clear sign of how deathly serious he is becoming).
  • The Fundamentalist - Averted. Ezran's father was a devout Christian who shunned the very thing that his son loved: science and knowledge. He believed that any book that isn't the Bible or some other holy text was blasphemy, and regularly burned his son's books. This instilled a deep hatred of religion in him.
  • Implausible Fencing Powers - Extremely skilled with a rapier.
  • Mad Scientist - Views everything around him as something to dissect and learn knowledge from.
  • Master Swordsman
  • Meaningful Rename - When he was human, Ezran shared the same name as his father, whom he despised. Upon ascending to a demigod, he changed his name to distance himself from his old life.
  • Missing Mom - His mother died giving birth to him as a child. This might've contributed to the abuse that his father regularly gave him as Ezran was growing up.
  • Moral Myopia - He would have been an almost regular man with a thirst for knowledge if he had survived his father's attack, albeit a troubled one due to his years of abuse. The End making a Faustian-type bargain with him, however, caused him to abandon all restraint and morality for the sake of infinite knowledge.
  • Named Weapons - He possesses a rapier named "Lana", whom he named after his deceased mother.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping - Get him riled up enough, and his cultured accent will devolve into the kind more commonly associated with the rural south. This crosses over with Red Eyes, Take Warning.
  • Patricide - Back when he was human, Ezran hated his father with a passion for destroying the only thing that ever gave him solace. When he was old enough, he resolved to kill the man, and succeeded. Crosses over with Taking You with Me, as his father fatally shot him in turn.
  • Royal Rapier - Wields an extremely sharp and well crafted rapier into battle as his primary weapon.
  • Shadow Archetype - Acts as one to Alexis. While she is willing to pursue knowledge, she still has morals and loved ones to keep her from going overboard. Ezran has nothing holding him back, and will do whatever it takes to get what he wants.
  • Sophisticated as Hell - He's extremely likely to cuss you out while kicking your ass, and sounding like a perfect gentleman as he does it.
  • Southern Gentleman - Makes himself out to be this.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair - Possesses naturally slicked back green hair.

    Edtxerx Verser 
"Congratulations, Dexter. In trying to prevent another enemy from coming into the Multiverse, you gave it one of its most dangerous. And now...it's going to kill you."
Edtxerx Verser to Dexter Verser during an early confrontation.

Edtxerx Verser is Dexter Verser's Nobody and a Rogue Multiverser. He came into existence when Walter Padick convinced Xehanort to try and remove Dexter's Heart with Keyblade during Multiversal Hearts. Dexter, having taken precautions against the creation of a Heartless, reformed around his Heart. The body left behind, however, regained life and became Xaran Verser. His primary goal is to kill Dexter Verser and become "real" through doing so.


Tropes Relating to Xaran Verser:

  • Anti-Villain - On the whole, he's far from the worst of the Multiversers' enemies. In the end, he's just an incomplete being who wants to become whole and "real.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender - He has a female form called Dark Heart.
  • Ax-Crazy - Toward Dexter.
  • Badass Longcoat - Much like the rest of Organisation XIII, which he usurped leadership of, Edtxerx has one of these.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble - Edtxerx's followers - Organisation Ω - are intentionally comprised of villains from worlds Dexter has visited. Due to his connection to Dexter, Edtxerx feels he should pick up his own allies from the same places Dexter did.
  • Evil vs. Evil - During the events of Multiversal Hearts, Edtxerx and Organisation XIII get into a violent competition with Nyarlathotep and the Disney villains over who can lay claim to Kingdom Hearts. The Author eventually intervenes and punishes the two for squabbling like petulant children.
    • He also often clashes with Chalice due to their conflicting goals (where Edtxerx wants Dexter dead, Chalice wants Dexter's love).
  • Humanoid Abomination - Considering he shouldn't exist, he can certainly be considered one.
  • Lack of Empathy - As a Nobody, Edtxerx initially starts out with no emotions whatsoever. He gains emotions as time goes on, however.
  • The Sociopath - At first.

Scripted Beings/The Author's Psuedoversers/"The Lords":

Joined in the First Incarnation:

    Nyarlathotep (The Tower's Corner of the Multiverse — The Dark Tower) 
"Farewell, Gilead, and burn in hell. For burn you shall ... and by all the pestilent gods, it will be my hand holding the match."
Nyarlathotep, under the alias of Walter O'Dim, as he fled Gilead.

Nyarlathotep, also commonly known as the Man in Black, is a major antagonist of the Multiverser Saga, specifically of Dexter and Michael. He is the son of Maerlyn, an immortal wizard who originated in a dimension known as the Prim, and Selena, a goddess of death. His end goal is initially to become God of All Things, but has since given up this goal in the name of revenge against Dexter and Michael. He has his origins in H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, and Stephen King novels The Stand, The Eyes of the Dragon, and the Dark Tower series.

For the primary tropes relating to him, click here, here, or here, Tropes relevant to the Multiverser Saga are as listed down below.


Tropes Relating to Walter Padick:

  • Antagonist Abilities - The extent of his abilities is still unknown, but he has shown that he can be a match for some of the Multiversers, which already makes him far more powerful than the usual mooks.
  • Arch-Enemy - Primarily to Dexter, but also to Michael after it is revealed that Walter was the one who personally burned Michael's family alive in during The Outbreak and Michael expressed his goal of killing him. Duncan, too, due to his complete and utter hatred of the Outer Gods.
  • As Long as There is Evil - Nyarlathotep revels in bringing out the worst in people. It's to such a massive extent that he's referred to as the "Semi-Aspect of Evil" despite not being a Multiverser or an Antiverser; he embodies everything wrong in the Multiverse too well for him to not be considered a representation of it.
    • Pretty much outright stated by him at one point.
    Nyarlathotep (to Dexter): I am the Shadow of all humans. As long as humans have dark hearts, I will live.
  • Batman Gambit - Being a manipulator, the majority of Nyarlathotep's schemes depend on everyone involved acting exactly as he predicted they would. Unfortunately, these work out for him a good number of times for non-Multiverser targets.
  • Big Bad - He features in most of the stories starring Dexter with only one or two exceptions and has developed something of an obsession with the Multiverser because of how often they encounter one another. In some ways, he's even more of an antagonist to Dexter than Chalice is. This also extends to Michael, but in a different way. Whereas Nyarlathotep has a certain fondness for going against Dexter, he utterly loathes Michael.
  • Berserk Button - Of the "Living" variety. He is this to both Dexter and Michael due to his personal torments he's committed to both of them while hounding the two across the Multiverse. He is also one to Duncan Verser, due to his identity as Nyarlathotep (Duncan has an intense hatred of the Outer Gods, so seeing one of them running about and causing chaos toward the Multiversers pisses him off to no end).
    • He has a button of his own: killing his loved ones. Do this, and he will hunt you down to the ends of existence and make you pay.
  • Card-Carrying Villain - He never makes any attempts to hide how evil he is and seems to relish in his own despicable actions.
  • Character Name Alias - The Man in Black changes his name seemingly every time he shows up. He has gone by Randall Flagg (his favourite if the frequency of use is anything to go by), Rudin Filario, The Walkin' Dude, The Hardcase, Walter O'Dim, the Man in Black, the Dark Man, The Covenant Man, Marten Broadcloak, and many others. It's even implied by Dexter that in the Stephen King short story The Children of the Corn, Walter is the true identity of the mysterious creature the titular Children worship: He Who Walks Behind the Rows.
  • The Corrupter - In his quest for vengeance against Michael Verser, he has realised that one way of securing some kind of victory is to force Michael to break his own moral code and will try to do so whenever an opportunity presents itself. He also does this to other people, whether it suits his goals or simply because he can.
  • Devil in Plain Sight - He can shapeshift into multiple different forms, so it's not out of the question that the Multiversers or anyone else might pass by him in the street without realizing they've just walked by him.
  • The Dragon - He is initially second in command to the Crimson King. He still counts as this now, only to The Author.
    • Dragon Ascendant - While he still isn't in charge of anything, after he joins The Order, he is still a landslide above where he was as a disciple of the Crimson King.
  • The Dreaded - Walter is so evil that Dexter feels a sense of dread whenever he shows up. Eventually, Michael too comes to understand why.
  • Eldritch Abomination - One of the originals, in fact — Walter is the true identiy of Nyarlathotep of H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhlu Mythos. He also takes on the role of Nyarlathotep in Dexter's version of the Persona universe, which is where they first encountered one another.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones - His relationship with the Pink Demon, and later with Heland'r/Hellfire. The Author is a dear friend to him, even if they didn't exactly start out that way.
  • Evil Counterpart - Much like the Antiversers, he comes across as being one to the Multiversers as a whole. Like the Multiversers, he has the powers of a god, was created by a power far more significant than his own (that of Azathoth), represents and is fuelled by a concept (evil), and has a very active sex life (though consent is not always a factor where he's concerned).
  • Evil Gloating - He does this as a way of pissing off the heroes. He also uses it to gleefully reveal to them horrible things he may have done to their loved ones, as was the case when he cheerfully reveals to the Team that he was among the individuals who raped Starfire during her imprisonment and acted as though nothing was wrong.
  • Evil Sorcerer
  • Faux Affably Evil - Despite the downright evil aura he gives off and the vileness of his actions, he acts like any other guy, even acting friendly toward his enemies a lot of the time (though this friendliness is quite clearly mockery, hence this trope). The one exception is if either Dexter or Michael bring up the time they teamed up to kill his demonic lover.
  • Hero Killer - Played with in Multiverser DxD; while Riser Phenex wasn't really a "hero" by that point, he was ruthlessly killed by Padick years prior to Rias meeting Dexter and Michael. He then took his victim's place via shapeshifting, fooling everyone until he exposed himself to everyone.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain - Initially. He starts out as a minion of the Crimson King, but has an agenda of his own hidden beneath that.
  • Hidden Depths - Implied in that he seems genuinely hurt when referred to as "cruel" or anything of the like.
  • I Have Many Names - To quote the man himself, "I have as many names as there are worlds." These names include:
    • Walter Padick (his original name), Randall Flagg, Walter O'Dim, The Ageless Stranger, The Walkin' Dude, The Dark Man, Beelzebub, Legion, Anubis, The Hardcase, The Man in Black, The Tall Man, The Midnight Rambler, The Antagonist, The Grinning Man, Old Creeping Judas, Richard Fry, Robert Franq, Ramsay Forrest, Robert Freemont, Richard Freemantle, The Monster, The Man with No Face, Raymond Fiegler, Russell Faraday, Marten Broadcloak, Walter Hodji, He Who Walks Behind the Rows, Leland Gaunt, and Nyarlathotep.
    • Due to being Nyarlathotep, it can be safely assumed he shares all of those names, too. These include:
      • The Crawling Chaos, Ahtu, The Black Man, The Black Pharoah, The Black Wind, The Bloated Woman, The Crawling Mist, The Dark Demon, The Black Demon, The Dark One, The Dweller in Darkness, The Faceless God, The Floating Horror, The Haunter of the Dark, Face Eater, Father of all Bats, Dark Wing, Sand Bat, Fly-The-Light, The Howler in the Dark, The God of Bloody Tongue, L'rog'g, The Bat God of L'gy'hx, Messenger of the Old Ones, Mr Skin, Shugoran, Thing in the Yellow Mask, The White Man, The Skinless One, The Masked Messenger, The Mysterious God.
    • Due to his shapeshifting abilities, he also takes on the personas of fictional characters in other series, whether he has a connection to them or not. These include:
  • I'm a Humanitarian - Failing Walter is very inadvisable because of his bad habit of ... well, eating people who disappoint him.
  • Kick the Dog - Walter does a lot of really nasty shit to people even though on the surface, he gains basically nothing from it. He does these things simply because it's in his nature to do them.
  • Manipulative Bastard - He is in no way opposed to using others for his own ends. This is best shown when he seduced and had an affair with Gabriella Deschain in an attempt to anger Dexter into taking his Gunslinger test early - unfortunately for Walter, Dexter was already well aware of this because he read The Dark Tower in his human life and made sure to mock Walter about the pointlessness of his scheme.
  • Not So Different - Walter believes this of himself, Duncan, and Dexter. The worst part is that he's right to a very minor extent: all three of them plan ahead and meticulously ensure a situation will be in their favor, and all three of them have a tendency to get angry or freak out when something genuinely unexpected happens.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain - Compared to the Multiversers' other enemies, Walter doesn't look like much, but they soon come to realise he's a much bigger threat than he seems.
  • Opportunistic Bastard - Even if he didn't plan the event, if he sees an opportunity to hurt either Dexter or Michael, he fucking takes it.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil - Walter is a serial rapist. He does not, however, do so for his own sexual gratification as most rapists do. He commits rape when it suits his goals. In the case of Nadine Cross in The Stand, it was because he intended to make her the mother of his child, who he wanted to rule the empire he was building using the remnants of the old world. In the case of Koriand'r/Starfire in Young Multiverser, it was simply meant as a way of hurting Michael Verser, who he knew would probably get romantically involved with Starfire.
  • Sadist - Walter relishes in the opportunity to cause pain and suffering to his enemies and even gains vast amounts of enjoyment from harming their loved ones.
  • Serial Rapist
  • The Starscream - He planned to betray his previous master, the Crimson King, and knowing his track record, would do the same to his new master if an opportunity to do so presented itself. Though considering his bond with The Author, this is unlikely.
  • Themed Aliases - While Walter has gone by many aliases over the years, he seems to have a particular fondness for names with the initials R.F. Rudin Filario, Richard Freemantle, and, most commonly, Randall Flagg are all aliases he has used in the past.
  • Villainous Friendship - Shares one with The Author.
  • Villainous Vow - After Michael and Dexter kill the Pink Demon, Walter vows slow, painful revenge on the two of them.

    Rizevim Livan Lucifer (High School DxD) 

The son of the original Lucifer and Lilith and grandfather of Vali Lucifer, Rizevim is a devil who is the leader of the Qlippoth Faction. Not only that, but he has a penchant for tormenting everyone he comes across. During Kay's adventures in that world, Rizevim gains an interest and antagonistic relationship with the Multiverser, culminating in him becoming the Big Bad of Kay Verser's stories (and thus leading him to joining The Order).

Tropes Relevant to The Multiverser Saga:

  • Arch-Enemy / Big Bad - Serves as this to Kay Verser, acting as the main antagonist of his stories.

    The Beast (The Magicians) 

An extremely powerful dark magic user hailing from the world of The Magicians, whom LaTrell came into opposition against during his time there. Appears as a monstrous creature from another world who appears in this one with his face obscured by moths. In reality, he was once Martin Chatwin, who was turned into an evil and extremely powerful magician by the traumas of his childhood. After meeting LaTrell, he took an interest in the Multiverse at large.

For the primary tropes relating to him, click here. Tropes relevant to the Multiverser Saga are as listed down below.


Tropes Relating to Martin Chatwin/The Beast:

  • Big Bad - Chatwin serves as the main antagonist of LaTrell's stories.
  • Blood Knight - After his initial battles against LaTrell, Chatwin has become much more violent and tyrannical. As a result, he is much more willing to cause bloodshed and kill others.
  • Blood Lust - A major case of it, thanks to his battles against LaTrell awakening a move violent side to himself.
  • Can't Kill You, Still Need You - His opinion of Erebus, despite knowing full well that his creation has an agenda of his own that could interfere with the one he has.
  • The Chessmaster
  • From Nobody to Nightmare - While not a "nobody," Chatwin was originally meant to acquire a great deal of power. His childhood rape set him on a darker path to gain said power, resulting in him becoming "The Beast." And after meeting LaTrell and gaining a rival in him, he becomes a major threat on a Multiversal scale.

    Salem (The Multiverser of Remnant/The Multiverser: AAC Eing It - RWBY) 

"Make no mistake, 'Hero.' This is the only the beginning of the end. And in the end, despite your efforts, all of Remnant will burn...and you along with it."
Salem (addressing Michael Verser).

An ancient and enigmatic figure from the world of RWBY. Possessing the power to control the Grimm, Salem also has human and Faunus followers that support her cause and enact her will. Prior to joining The Order, she has been leading a shadow campaign to bring down the Huntsmen (and quite possibly the rest of the world of Remnant with them).

For the primary tropes relating to her, click here. Tropes relevant to the Multiverser Saga are as listed down below.


Tropes Relevant to The Multiverser Saga:

  • The Dreaded - Becomes this to Michael after their first meeting, which resulted in him becoming terrified of her for years to come.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones - Forms a romantic relationship with Walter Padick/The Man in Black, drawn to his innate evil nature and his gestures of affection toward her.
  • Hope Crusher - One of her main goals for the world of Remnant. This puts her into direct opposition with Michael, the Aspect of Hope, and proceeds to striving to kill him or corrupt him in order to end all hope in mankind.
  • Villain Respect - Holds a good deal of respect toward both Ozpin and Michael, seeing both of them as worthy opponents to not be taken lightly.

    Akande Ogundimu/Doomfist (Overwatch: The Multiverse's Heroes — Overwatch) 
"Only through conflict do we evolve."

Akande Ogundimu was born into a wealthy family and would grow up to be a highly intelligent and charismatic figure, expanding their prosthetic-technology company and pursuing his love of competitive martial arts. Unfortunately, his dreams were cut short when he lost his right arm during the Omnic Crisis, and while it was replaced with an even stronger cybernetic replacement, he was rendered ineligible for competition. Eventually, he was approached by Akinjide Adeyemi... also known as the second Doomfist, the Scourge of Numbani, and a member of the terrorist organization Talon. Through Talon, he embraced the organizations' belief that humanity would be made stronger through conflict. He began orchestrating a worldwide war, but was stopped by Overwatch and imprisoned. Once freed and given aid by The Order, Akande joined in order to spread his vision of a better and stronger Multiverse through conflict.

For the primary tropes relating to him, click here. Tropes relevant to the Multiverser Saga are as listed down below.


Tropes Relevant to The Multiverser Saga:

  • Affably Evil - Despite being a stoic man of few words bent on causing conflict and suffering as much as possible in order to improve mankind, Doomfist belittles his opponents only occasionally, treats everyone fairly as long as they have strength (as shown with how he and Michael can interact outside of battle), admits to his own failings at times, and possesses a calm sense of humor. Despite being a leader of Talon, he's definitely no Bad Boss...unless someone tries to double-cross him, then he drops his friendly demeanor and adopts a colder one.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking - He is one of the leaders of Talon and lore-wise is capable of taking on three Overwatch operatives at once. He is even capable of giving Michael Verser a run for his money, even with the use of his many abilities.
  • Blood Knight - Lives and breathes for battle. It is because of this that he shares a respect with The Major, who is himself an aficionado of the art and use of war.
  • Calling Your Attacks - Prone to this at times. He privately admits to The Author that it is an unusual habit.
  • Can't Kill You, Still Need You - Every member of The Order is of some use to The Author, so even if Doomfist wanted to kill someone that couldn't be trusted or was more of a hindrance, he won't. That said, once that person's use has run out, or they've used up all their chances, it's open season as far as he's concerned.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle - He gives these out frequently. Even the Multiversers have some degree of difficulty against him.
  • Even Evil Has Standards - Doomfist is less than pleased with Jack Slash and what he does. He nearly loses his shit when he learns he's slaughtered infants in a nursery, and warns him that if he does anything like that when in the same universe with each other, he will end him.
  • Irony - When playing the video game based on his universe, he finds that he has some skill in utilizing Tracer, Genji and Winston against the enemy team. The irony is not lost on him, as he admits to those playing with him.
  • One-Man Army - Went alone against the entire Numbani robotic police force to get his gauntlet back, and utterly curbstomped them. And when faced against a small group of Multiversers, he surprised everyone by holding them off.
  • Villainous Friendship - Back in Talon, he shares one with Maximilien, the two respecting each other due to their history together. He also has a bit of one with The Major, due to mutual respect for each other and their appreciation for the art of war.
  • Worthy Opponent - He acknowledges Michael Verser as this. Despite their differing ideals for mankind, he respects Michael's drive to go as far as he can to protect others. It gets to the point where he will subtly (yet physically) threaten his allies to not disrespect someone who will risk themselves to save others.

    Vilgax (Multiverser 10 — Ben 10) 

One of Michael and Adam Verser's most dangerous enemies from the world of Ben 10. A sadistic, violent and ambitious alien Evil Overlord, Vilgax is obsessed with getting the Omnitrix so he can use it to create an army of shapeshifting drones able to adapt to any situation, and as such able to defeat anyone in the galaxy. After joining with The Order and realizing there was so much more to conquer, he became one of the group's greatest Generals, and a bigger threat than ever.

For the primary tropes relating to him, click here. Tropes relevant to the Multiverser Saga are as listed down below.


Tropes Relevant to The Multiverser Saga:

  • The Dragon - Becomes one of The Author's top enforcers. The only thing that keeps him from becoming The Starscream and stabbing him in the back is that he is fully aware he will perish if he tries (thus making The Author the one partner he would never betray, if only to make sure he stays alive).
  • I'll Kill You! - "By the time I'm finished with you, you'll be begging me to end your suffering!"
  • Knight of Cerebus - His very arrival into a world Michael, Adam or Dexter inhabits sets them on edge, knowing that things are getting serious if Vilgax has arrived to aid the villains.
  • No Nonsense Villain - Unlike his canon portrayal, Vilgax has not lost any of the traits that made him a deadly opponent. He lacks any sense of humor, has learned to use schemes and manipulation in tandem with his physical prowess, strikes hard and fast (without giving his foe any chance to recover), and if he sees an opportunity to win, he'll take it.

    Dio Brando/DIO/Heaven Ascension DIO (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) 


Tropes Relating to Dio Brando/DIO:

    Unicron (Transformers: Multiverser — Transformers Prime) 

An ancient evil, a mechanical god of sorts who possesses a rivalry with his counterpart Primus. Defeated eons ago, his influence continues to the present day and is a force that couldn't care less about the Autobot/Decepticon conflict.

For the primary tropes relating to him, click here. Tropes relevant to the Multiverser Saga are as listed down below.


Tropes Relating to Unicron:

  • Eldritch Location - Becomes a living planet that serves as a new headquarters for The Order.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can - As of the end of the timeframe of "Predacons Rising," Unicron was sealed away into the relic that contained the Allspark. Once the relic was liberated from Michael's vault and he was unleashed (albeit with restrictions), he became an ally of The Order.

    Brainiac (Injustice 2) 

Vril Dox, also known as Brainiac, is an alien with a twelfth-level intellect due to the vast amount of knowledge that he has amassed from the worlds that he has collected. Because of this, he has gained a special interest in Alexis Verser, the Aspect of Knowledge (and her kingdom, Arcadia). This led him to join The Order, so that he could kill two birds with one stone.

For the primary tropes relating to this particular version of the character, click here. Tropes relevant to the Multiverser Saga are listed down below.


Tropes Relating to Braniac:

  • Abhorrent Admirer - He is this to Alexis, due to her immense beauty and her status as the incarnation of Knowledge. She and her kingdom of Arcadia are both objects that he covets immensely.
  • Arch-Enemy - To both Supergirl (due to all of the suffering he caused her) and to Alexis (due to wanting to add her and her kingdom to his vast collection).
  • Combat Tentacles - His primary source of weaponry. Already powerful enough to bitch slap a Kryptonian powered by a yellow sun, they are upgraded further to combat Multiversers.

Joined in the Second Incarnation:

    Hellfire (Young Multiverser — Young Justice) 

The evil older sister of Koriand'r/Starfire, and tyrannical ruler of Tamaran from Young Multiverser.


Tropes Relating to Hellfire:

  • Archenemy - Is this to Starfire.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished - Averted. After the climactic battle of her return in Young Multiverser, she was left with burns and scars that marred her beauty. This gave her even more reason to take revenge against the heroes.
  • Cain and Abel - She is the Cain to Koriand'r's Abel, having sold her sister into sexual slavery in the Citadel.
  • Driven by Envy - Envy of her younger sister is her driving motivation. It started when all of her privileges, honors, and celebration were later given to her younger sister.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones - In a Squick inducing moment in Young Multiverser, it is revealed that she is in a romantic relationship with Walter Padick/The Man in Black. It is to the point that both of them are worried upon seeing the other harmed.
  • Evil Counterpart - Is this to her sister.
  • The Evil Princess
  • Evil Redhead - As a Tamaranean, she has naturally red hair. She's also pure evil.
  • Freudian Excuse - Her evil can be stated to stem from being hated by everyone upon her birth, solely because the Citadel attacked and destroyed a major city on Tamaran the day she was born.
  • God Save Us from the Queen! - After being influenced by Walter Padick, she became one of the most brutal and feared rulers in all of Tamaran's history. So much so that even the Citadel applauded her ruthlessness.
  • Hand Blast - Her main form of attack, as with her sister Starfire.
  • Humanoid Aliens - Her people are indistinguishable from humans, save the alien green eyes and exotic orange skin.
  • Meaningful Rename - After enduring another devastating attack in Young Multiverser that left her even more scarred, but more powerful as a result, she took on the new name of "Heland'r/Hellfire."
  • No-One Could Have Survived That - Back before the DC Animated Movie-verse was merged into the world of Young Justice, Michael and the Teen Titans fought Komand'r in a massive battle that resulted in her being seemingly destroyed, scarring her and leaving her unable to naturally use her abilities. As she reveals when they meet again in Young Multiverser, she was left near death, but was nursed back to health by Walter Padick. This allowed her to be reincarnated with the rest of her universe.
  • Power of the Sun - Her alien physiology constantly absorbs ultraviolet radiation and converts it to energy. However, due to a previous run in with Michael and the Teen Titans, she has to rely on a high-tech armor to absorb the necessary solar radiation for her to survive.
  • Red Right Hand - She gains a number of burns and scars due to her battles with the Multiversers in Young Multiverser.
  • The Resenter - Toward Starfire.
  • Sibling Rivalry - Taken Up to 11.
  • Stronger Sibling
  • Then Let Me Be Evil - She was treated as a villain by the Tamaraneans for no fault of her own, with her birthright bestowed upon Starfire (who, ironically, was one of the few who didn't hate her). One day, she snapped and became the villain she had been treated as, starting with attempting to murder Starfire.

    The Vision (The Fear Mythos) 
She was beautiful. Had this glow that stays with me. And throughout all the chaos and the blood and the gore, there she was, this vision of beauty and it was so wrong it makes me sick.

The fear of destiny and inevitability, usually portrayed as an impossibly beautiful woman with angelic-like features, and chitinous claws on her fingers. She can show humans their future through her eyes or transfer parts of her consciousness inside them.

For the primary tropes relating to her, click here. Tropes relevant to the Multiverser Saga are as listed down below.


Tropes Relevant to The Multiverser Saga:

  • Abhorrent Admirer - Michael Verser's ability to actively defy destiny has given The Vision a rather unhealthy obsession with him.
  • Affectionate Nickname - Subverted. Michael refers to her as "Moirai" in order to not confuse her with the heroic android from the Marvel Universe. This is not a sign of affection on his part, but pragmatism.
  • Angelic Beauty - Other than her long, red claws, this is how she's described.
  • Did You Just Romance Cthulhu? - Inverted and played with. See Abhorrent Admirer above.
  • Sympathy for the Hero - Played with, as while she is able to feel emotions such as sympathy, she is still able to manipulate the emotions of others. Michael, being who he is, elicits a good deal of sympathy from her due to his backstory and drive to protect others, even as he continuously defies Fate.
  • You Can't Fight Fate - Genuinely believes this. It's Michael Verser's ability to near-constantly prove this wrong that begins her fascination with him.

Scripted Beings/Satan Verser's Pseudoversers:

     Sephiroth (Final Fantasy Multiverse — Final Fantasy VII / Multiversal Hearts — Kingdom Hearts)

Tropes Relevant to the Multiverser Saga:

  • For the Evulz - Admits that he wishes to cause Michael/Cloud any form of pain that he can, from physical to mental & emotional. This includes targeting those that he holds dear.
  • Fusion Dance - Of the "composite" variety. After meeting each other, and finding a common foe to defeat in the form of Michael (who is also Cloud), they merge together to create an even more powerful Sephiroth.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You - His mindset when it comes to Michael/Cloud, and vice versa; he won't let anyone but Michael/Cloud kill him.

    Jack Slash (Brockton Bay's Heroic Multiverser — Worm) 

The leader of a group of Parahuman serial killers in the world of Worm. Having been rescued from his fate by The Author, he now continues his bloody rampage wherever he is pointed, hoping to one day have a roll in the apocalpyse as was predicted in his home universe.

For the primary tropes relating to him, click here. Tropes relevant to the Multiverser Saga are as listed down below.


Tropes Relevant to The Multiverser Saga:

  • In Love with Your Carnage - After witnessing Michael successfully kill an Endbringer, something that no one else had ever managed to do, single-handedly, Jack Slash was left laughing in joy/excitement. This is because he was elated to finally meet someone he could see as a Worthy Opponent as powerful as Michael.
  • Villainous Friendship - Shares a powerful one with Walter Padick, and Chara as well (even taking the latter under his wing, teaching him everything that he knows).
  • Worthy Opponent - Much like the hero/villain relationship with Batman and the Joker, Jack fills in the role of the latter, with Michael Verser being the former. He considers Michael, a "Hero of Justice," to be the best person he could ever "have fun with" in his life.
    "I don't want to kill you, Mikey. God, what would I do without you?"

Scripted Beings/Ezran Verser's Psuedoversers:

    Ryo Asuka (DEVILMAN: crybaby) 

For the primary tropes relating to Ryo/Satan, click here. Tropes relevant to the Multiverser Saga are listed down below.


Tropes Relevant to The Multiverser Saga:

  • Because You Were Nice to Me - The primary reason they fell in love with Michael. It is also a small reason as to why they follow The Order, due to them rescuing Ryo/Satan from his universe, thus freeing them from the eternal punishment God intended for the rebellious fallen angel: being cursed to experience an endless loop that ends with their love dying at their hands.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy - After their actions nearly caused Michael to break, they decided to keep a distance from him whenever possible and find happiness with his loved ones, despite being in love with Michael themselves. This conflicts with how Ezran wants to use them against the Multiversers.
  • My God, What Have I Done? - Has this moment when they see how broken and catatonic Michael has become at the end of the final battle. Realizing that their actions have nearly killed the person they realized they fell in love with causes Ryo/Satan to experience a Villainous Breakdown, overcome with emotions they thought buried. They manage to snap out of it to a degree as they see Michael recover after leaving that universe.
  • Trauma Button - Is a living one toward Michael. Simply their presence manages to cause Michael to slip into a Vietnam flashback-style state of being, overcome with the traumatic memories of his time there.
  • Yandere - Toward Michael. They are willing to kill anyone they view as a threat to him, as well as try to alienate him from his friends so they could have him all to themselves.

    The Night King (The Multiverser of Westeros — Game of Thrones) 
"The true enemy won't wait out the storm. He brings the storm."
Jon Snow

A First Man who the Children of the Forest turned into the first of the White Walkers. As his name/moniker suggests, the Night King is the leader of the White Walkers, and perhaps the most formidable foe Westeros has ever faced.

Tropes Relevant to The Multiverser Saga:

  • Revenge - His primary motivation for working under Ezran is wanting to kill Alexis for decimating his army and ruining his plans for Westeros.

    Ragyo Kiryuin (Kill la Kill) 

For primary tropes relating to her, click here. Tropes relevant to the Multiverser Saga are as listed down below.


Tropes Relevant to the Multiverser Saga:

  • The Atoner - In at least Michael's and Kay's respective worlds, once the influence of the Life Fibers is removed, she devotes herself to making amends with all of her world for her actions (especially in the case of her daughters).
  • Brainwashed and Crazy - At least in the worlds Michael and Kay visits, Ragyo became the monster she was in canon because the Life Fibers corrupted her. Once their influence is removed, she is left horrified and suicidal at nearly sacrificing all of mankind to them.
    • Subverted in Duncan's world, as in there she was already sociopathic and monstrous.
  • Bi the Way - Back in canon, her sexuality was left as Ambiguously Bi. Once Michael's version has her madness cured, and the respective Ragyo enters a relationship with each respective Multiverser, she admits to swinging both ways.
  • Curbstomp Battle - Whether with or without Life Fibers, or whether it is good or evil Ragyo, she is more than capable of delivering a beating to anyone against her. Duncan himself admits that for a human, she was one of the toughest fights of his life (even before she started bringing out Life Fibers).
  • Deader Than Dead - Her ultimate fate in Duncan's world. All he is willing to divulge is that he left nothing to chance with her.
  • Other Me Annoys Me - The redeemed Ragyo looks down upon the past version of herself and Duncan's version of her for willingly casting away their humanity for "sentient clothing."

    Hermaeus Mora (The Elder Scrolls) 

Hermaeus Mora is the Daedric Prince of Knowledge, and also associated with the tides of fate and destiny. His most common symbol is an eye and, unlike the other Daedric Princes, he does not bother with a humanoid form, preferring to appear as a grotesque assemblage seemingly endless tentacles and eyes. While not considered to be one of the inherently malevolent Daedric Princes, Hermaeus Mora has been known to commit unspeakable acts in the pursuit of knowledge. This makes him a useful ally to Ezran, aiding and sharing in any knowledge they come across.
