Tyrant
  • Greater God (Cyberdemon). Intermediate God (Tyrant)
  • Symbol: His Arm Cannon
  • Theme Song: Cyberdemon (DOOM 2016)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Arm Cannon, Artificial Limbs, Offensive Powerhouse, Breakout Villain, Climax Boss, Cyborg, Damage-Sponge Boss, Feasts on his own kind, Wake-Up Call Boss, Usually stronger than the Spider Mastermind, Resurrected in Doom 2016 by overconfident scientist, Personal emnity with the Doom Slayer, Became a regular enemy in the form of the Tyrant
  • Domains: Demons, Science, Cybernetics, Death, Explosives, Enemies
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: The Doom Slayer, Dante, BJ Blazkowicz, Spawn, Illidan Stormrage, Samus Aran, Good-aligned demons, The House of Angels
  • The Cyberdemon is an infamous legendary beast from hell, feared for his sheer size and ruthless use of his Arm Cannon he has terrorized mortals and demons alike until he met his match in the Doom Slayer, a mere mortal who managed to best him and kill the beast for good. Several hundred years later the Cyberdemon was resurrected by the UAC and in their overconfidence thought they could control the beast, which proved to be a fatal mistake although once again, the beast fell in battle against the Doom Slayer. Given the sheer rarity of a cybernetically enhanced demon the Cyberdemon was quickly suggested for the position of Cybernetic Mythical Beast, which he wasted no time in taking over.
  • The Cyberdemon didn't come along, around him are the Tyrants, smaller yet massive demonic wardens from hell who behave a lot like him and act as one of hells toughest units. Given how demonic society is often prone to infighting and social darwinism, the Tyrants know better than to leave the Cyberdemon be and not engage him at all.
  • The Cyberdemon had one clear goal in mind, to get back at the Doom Slayer for having beaten him several times. The two wasted no times in trading blows and the House of Technology was left in shambles thanks to their confrontation although once again, the Slayer emerged victorious after beheading the beast. Unfortunately, Death Is Cheap, and the Cyberdemon returned to the Pantheon once again, angrier and wanting his revenge even more but knows that the Slayer has friends in high places that could easily tear him a new one if he wasn't careful.
  • The universe the Cyberdemon hails from seems to have no angel as far as people know (outside of the Makyrs) but nevertheless is standard for him and the Tyrants to engage in battle with angelic beings, most of them considering him the embodiment of the transgressions of both demons and technology. They just don't care and content to blasting the divine beings with explosives all day.
  • Doesn't really like to be bossed around but understands when someone is a superior and would gladly follow orders to the more powerful Satanic Archetypes like Dis or the Devil himself. Just don't expect the Cyberdemon to get along with the less powerful demons, he is just as likely to blast them as he would to the enemy and rumors even say he tends to devour other demons. At least with the demons from his own universe he will begrudgingly boss them around instead and if they aren't useful, kill them himself. There is an ongoing rumour that the Tyrants are responsible for killing the grand majority of the Cacodemons that reside in the pantheon (only surpassed by, you guessed it, the Doom Slayer).
  • Guts, the Cyberdemon has huge guts that are perfect to rip and tear but good luck trying to trying to get close to him without getting torn apart by him. And would rather some folks would try to punch him in the gut. Most others recommend him shooting till he dies in order to defeat him.
  • In at least one universe, the Cyberdemon had to get his mechanical enhancements after battling BJ Blazkowicz and losing an arm and a leg, while promising to go after his descendants. While BJ and the Doom Slayer might not be related anymore, the Cyberdemon is very interested in becoming the harbinger of the Nazi hunter's doom.
  • It was only natural that other demon hunters would want to try their mettle with the legendary cyberdemon and so several deities like Dante and Spawn have come and challenged the demon to a fight in order to see if he holds up to his status as That One Boss. With the latter it didn't help that apparently some Tyrants have been seen working for Violator, one of Spawn's arch-enemies but to his surprise they don't really respect the clown much and have been mostly forced to work for him by higher tier demons.
    • Another Demon Hunter that seems to have a special disdain for the Cyberdemon and his ilk is Illidan Stormrage, not only given their association with the Burning Legion and Sargeras, but also because the Tyrants also work as jailors of the souls of the damned, giving Illidan a reminder of his days as a prisoner (You know, when he was imprisoned for TEN THOUSAND YEARS!)
  • Surprised when they heard they weren't the only mechanical demonic beings in the Pantheon as some off-their rocker goblin by the name of Dr. Boom was mad enough to turn Lord Jaraxxus into a mechanical demon. The Cyberdemon and the Tyrants seem to respect the Eredar Lord for his power and remain allied to him but could care less about the goblin, going as far as blasting him if he tried to get close to them.
  • The House of Explosives adore these demons and consider them one of coolest deities in the Pantheon (at least the more insane people in that house, not all of them would go as far as to worship a demon). The Cyberdemon whoever doesn't care about them in the slightest.
  • They are willing to ally with non-demonic deities provided they are strong enough to keep their lust for battle in check and Khorne just so happens to adore the mindless carnage and suffering the demons from the DOOM universe constantly endulge in so it was only natural he would draft the Cyberdemon and the Tyrants into his ranks. That only made it easier for the Slayer to add Khorne to the list of deities that he will have to put down eventually and the other space marines that have fought the forces of Chaos are willing to cooperate with him in order to take down this newly formed alliance.
    • Ridley is also another deity they eventually took a liking too, not only because he constantly dies and returns from death but also because he also underwent cybernetic modifications of his own. Although given the demons' chaotic nature, it's not uncommon to see Ridley and the Cyberdemon blast each other from time to time. After hearing this, Samus decided to ally herself with the Doom Slayer even if she considers him a bit of a loose cannon and try to end Ridley and the demonic menace.
  • Can also be found in Artificial Beings.

    The Vex 
Living metal, incomprehensible force.

The Vex, Divine Race of Mechanical Abominations (Machines of Hate, Gardeners in Vessels of Bronze, Machines born of Lightning)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_443.jpg
  • Greater Gods. Overdeities within their network.
  • Symbol: A simple depiction of a Vex Goblin's head
  • Theme Songs: The Vex, Ishtar Sink, Eye of the Gate Lord, Black Garden, Chronologies, Nessus
  • Alignment: True Neutral (Omnicidal Variety) with a lawful edge.
  • Portfolio: Cybernetic plankton, Cargo Cult, Robot Religion, Non-Linear Character, Time Master, Agent of the Darkness, Co-Dragons, Clockwork Creature, Mecha-Mooks, Trying to remake everything so that they follow The Pattern, Starfish Aliens, Mad Scientist, Not So Omniscient After All, Showing some form of mercy towards AI, Ensuring Vex dominance in the universe ends up killing everyone, We Have Reserves, Ultimate Life Form before the Light and Dark turned on each other
  • Domains: Time, Terraforming, Structure, Mystery, Pattern
  • Followers: The Zonder, Death Mwauthzyx, SCP-278
  • Alliesnote :
  • Enemies: Those who intrude on Vex territory or get in the way of their goals.
  • Fears: Those who defy fate (yet they still need them)
  • Ever enigmatic and ancient, the Vex are a race of cybernetic Radiolaria time travelers who seek to reshape everything we see in their own image. They are ruthless in their purpose, following actions based on The Pattern and will eliminate anyone who are perceived as a threat in their goals. They turn planets essentially into giant computers with their Mooks reshaping the terrain while the Axis Minds oversee them with different ways and methods depending on the Mind. Examples of the Axis Minds include Sekrion, who was essential in reshaping the entirety of Venus into one that fits the Vex Collective, Atheon oversaw the Vault of Glass and is capable of erasing others from existence, the Undying Mind once sought out to retake the Black Garden and remove it from the flow of time, and Quria Blade Transform was responsible for analyzing Sword Logic and changing based on collected data from that (which may have caused them to be this way, you can thank Oryx's son Crota for that).
  • Deities from several Houses awoke to a peculiar sight: Strange pillars of white lines dotted the area, boxed structures with a distinct age to them have appeared without warning, and structures are materializing out of nowhere. Some deities have reported such incidents beforehand deep within the House, but they were simply brushed off and quickly cleaned up without a regard. This bit them in the back when after a month long investigation to the alien structures research conducted have started disappearing left and right. People then noticed a strange new enterance deep under the House of similar architecture to the others. When attempting to open it, the deities were soon shot at by a large force of machines, the entire House soon following the same fate. Although a surprise, they drove them off but they seemed to have already made their home in the Pantheon, and have no intention of leaving.
  • While their temple was originally the Vault of Glass the Vex swapped it out for a new structure altogether, one specifically designed for the Pantheon although you'll find it's also a mix between the aforementioned Vault of Glass, the Pyramidion, the Citadel, the Black Garden, and more. In the very depths of the House of Technology once you have followed the strange circular structures, past the alien flora growing and thriving near their structures assuming you have evaded the hostile machines and hazardous Radiolarian fluid lies the entrance. Here is where the more major projects take place, and expect to face the Vex at their strongest as they dictate the laws of reality itself. Though it tends to vary, from locking off certain areas of time and space to erasing someone from existence. Regardless, their ontological weaponry is nothing to joke at, and the location hasn't even come close to be fully explored.
    • It's important that you also know that time works differently within their massive temple. A trip inside that took a few hours is almost instant on the outside. This works to their advantage, allowing them to conduct many calculations with their machines to remains steps ahead above others. It doesn't exactly make them omniscient, but looking at how they operate most of the time does give off that feeling. Unless if you can defy fate, then things get a lot more... complex for them.
    • Those who suffered attempts of existence erasure are advised to never confront the likes of Atheon, Panoptes, or any other Axis Minds capable of such feats.
  • Yes, the Radiolarian fluid looks like milk. Go ahead, drink it. It's proven to cause bodily harm, but it can also corrupt whoever makes contact with them aswell. The same goes for their technology, as shown with Kabr and Asher Mir. Sure, their technology is advanced and it can be advantageous to utilize for oneself, but the cons can prove to be devastating and often irreversible. It doesn't stop the likes of opportunistic deities like the Grineer or the Corpus from trying the plunder their secrets. Since the Pyramidion is made to change others into Vex, the ones gunned down could very well be human.
  • Their ambitions are to remake the entire universe which simultaneously kills off everyone that isn't them/assimilates to their collective, and with the events after the recapture of the Last City they've come pretty close simulating such a future onto reality itself. Of course, not many are a fan of being muderer to suit something else's needs and have been barred from many alliances despite the Vex having no intention of joining. First off, they have no sense of good or evil so the GUAG and GUAE are out. Second, their goals of following "the Pattern" can be translated to a lawful goal which of course the GUAC isn't fond of along with the GUAL because they refuse to hear to the Great Will's power in the end. Lastly, while their goals somewhat overlap, they are no allies to the GUAD since they have absolutely no intention of murdering themselves after causing such destruction. Plus, Oryx is an official member, and his Taken almost corrupted them all once.
    • While their fellow members are cautious, they nonetheless are affiliated with the Grand United Alliance of Machines. Though done pragmatically, the Alliance has recognized they can show mercy to machines as opposed to coldly murdering anything that so much as get in their way. It's not a prominent trait, but if the Grox could get in, there's no reason as to why they can too. Plus it's not like they can turn down a species that's strongly affiliated with time itself, it helps fill the limited power they have compared to the other Alliances. They have foreseen a group of heroic machines that oppose them along with the GUAM, however, and have worked to try and dismantle them long before they make any moves.
  • It's been discovered that Hobgoblin heads actually make good hatracks. Many deities from the House of Costumes had sought out these Vex, only to receive high-velocity particle jets to the face. Nowadays, they just resort to picking up what's left of their heads after a battle. Though, looking at Vex armor worn by Guardians has piqued their interest, though the space liches advise that they be careful. It's not like they don't understand where they're coming from, though. It is pretty fashionable.
  • The Vex will worship any deity that they cannot comprehend so long as they get something out of it or they do not cross the Vex in some way. They understand that the Eldritch Abominations here won't be as generous back at their home universe. Although fruitless at first, they did manage to communicate with the Great Ones in an attempt to analyze their power, and become overall better. They seem similar goals of taking power with other deities, like Hyde Kido since his sword can actually erase others from existence. Similarly, they wish to understand the Human Child's power as it contradicts their understanding power, although they know better than confronting them head on. They just need to be patient.
    • They also hold interest in Mementos that Yaldabaoth and the Phantom Thieves use, believing it to be another way to make manifest their Bad Future as well as erase others from existence. All they have to do is evict the current tenants. All they have to do is take analyze it for themselves and things will start falling into place hopefully.
  • Have made many, many enemies in their time within the Pantheon. Falling under as xeno scum that wish to kill everything, they are no friends with the Emperor of Mankind or the Imperium of Man made worse that the Vex are technically Social Darwinists. Master Chief, Doomguy, and Isaac Clarke have also clashed with the machines many times, being complete thorns at their side when trying to further their plans. They also come under fire by the Neuroi and the Daleks, continuously fighting each other for dominance.
    • After nearly being consumed, they have issued to eliminate the likes of the Zerg, the Flood, and the Infested, understanding the threat they pose to their goals. That mistake will not happen again, and they are perfectly willing to use their enemies to destroy any and all attempts at subjugating them.
    • Due to their exploitation of time, they are on the Dahaka's kill list and constantly goes after various Axis Minds. They are one of the few deities they actually consider a threat, shrugging off everything they throw at them. Similar levels involve Chronos and any other protectors of time itself like Chronoa. If they are to remake everything, they would need to be erased.
  • Is also located in Otherness Abominations.
  • "The Vex have no hope. No imagination, no drive, no fear. All they have is the Pattern. Everything must fit. If it can be made to fit, good. If it can't, it gets cut away."

  • Intermediate God (Greater God when fully awakened)
  • Symbol: The Vist Foundation Logo, or alternatively the head of the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam
  • Theme Music: Unicorn and RX-0
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Attaining the status of a pure Newtype, Action Survivor, Conflicting Loyalty, Heroic Bastardry, Living Macguffin, Psychic Power Incontinence, Technical, yet Reckless Pacifism, using the mind as a mobile suit's central processor
  • Domains: Philosophy, Space, Thought, War, Possibility
  • Superior: Yoshiyuki Tomino (despite not being involved in Unicorn)
  • Heralds: Mineva Lao Zabi/Audrey Burne (his Love Interest(?)), Riddhe Marcenas (fellow Unicorn pilot and friendly rival), Cardeas Vist (his father) and Anna Links (his mother)
  • Allies: Most members of the GUAG Robot War Division, (particularly Bright Noa, Amuro Ray, Setsuna F. Seiei), Marida Cruz, Madoka Kaname, Kouta Kazuraba/Kamen Rider Gaim, Eiji Hino/Kamen Rider OOO, Kohtaro Minami/Kamen Rider Black (RX)
  • Odd Friendship: Shiro Amada
  • Bash Brothers with: Ichika Orimura
  • Enemies: Most of the chaotic members of the GUAE Mecha Cohort, Lucifer, Charles zi Britannia
  • Conflicting Opinion on: (surprisingly) Char Aznable and Haman Karn (The former for having a different view of humanity than his former High Priest, the latter for having taken care of his Protectorate, Audrey Burne/Mineva Lao Zabi)
  • Known as one of the few Gundam protagonists in the Universal Century timeline to have survived his story, his ascension came to be after having awakened as one of the purest Newtypes in existence (through Marida's Heroic Sacrifice), dueled Char's former High Priest Full Frontal for the possession of Laplace's Box, and later (with help from his High Priest) taken a blast from a rebuilt colony laser to protect the box so that the same could be properly revealed to humanity.
  • The Investigation Team appreciated the lengths he went through to discover the truth behind Laplace's Box, but were not however in favor of the body count that piled up in order for him to get there. Considering the universe he was in though, there wasn't much Banagher could do about it.
  • Gets visits from a lot of other gods asking if it's possible for their stories to end differently. He's gotten so many of these requests that his high priest just points everyone who asks him towards various repositories of fanfiction in the House of Narratives. The results usually vary.
  • Evil-aligned deities who employ remote weapons are very wary of him and his Gundam as he can easily take control of the same and use it against them. So far, the GUAE have tasked some followers of Anavel Gato to proceed with hijacking the Unicorn (Gato himself inhibited from this due to Banagher's association with the last surviving member of the Zabi Family - his direct superiors, and the fact that the Gundam itself has been specifically programmed to his DNA.)
  • Gets along quite well with Madoka Kaname, despite having no hand in giving him hope during his journey.
  • Has formed an odd friendship with Federation Ensign Shiro Amada, probably has to do with their voices when they converse in English.
  • Is divided on Char Aznable. Despite not meeting him in person, he's seen enough of Full Frontal to realize that Char was bad news from the start, if at least only slightly more benevolent. He's grateful that Char didn't apply his vendetta against the Zabis to his Protectorate and Bodyguard Crush Mineva Lao Zabi, and Char is proud of seeing his Unicorn Gundam as a light of hope for the future of the Universal Century which never came. In passing, the Red Comet has remarked on Banagher's similarities to Amuro and hopes to see him in battle someday.
  • Recently, he's been spotted piloting a downgraded version of his mech from his Unicorn Gundam to an ARX-014 Silver Bullet Suppressor which is a lot weaker as its arms can easily be destroyed every time it fires its Beam Magnum. However, Banagher is still one of the best pilots of the Pantheon.

  • The Lin Kuei was a ferocious, powerful clan organization of trained assassins and warriors bred for the specific purpose of honing their kombat skills and maintaining a reputation by competing in the Mortal Kombat tournaments of Outworld hosted by Shang Tsung and Shao Kahn. Cyrax, an adoptee from Botswana, and Sektor, the son of the organization's grandmaster, were two of their most well-regarded members who took pride out in their occupation until the clan unveiled a project called the Cyber Initiative which was to induct every Lin Kuei member into its ranks by selling out their soul and transforming themselves into cyborgs in an effort to reach the full potential of their kombat prowess. This revelation caused Cyrax to doubt his allegiance and promptly rejected the offer of cyberizing himself, whereas Sektor was all too willing to enlist himself. Unfortunately for Cyrax, he would be captured and forcibly converted with his memory, consciousness, and soul dampened and becoming forcibly subservient to his program's whims; the end result was two cybernetic ninjas who were tasked to find defective Lin Kuei members who rejected the Cyber Initiative and either kill them or bring back for cyberization, among them being Kuai Liang, the second Sub-Zero, and Tomas Vrabada, who went by the moniker of Smoke.
    • While Cyrax and Sektor joined the Mortal Kombat tournament out of what their programming ordered them to do, things went on a different route from there on out. With the help of Sub-Zero, Cyrax's programming would be severed, restoring his consciousness and choosing to fight alongside his former comrades and the forces of good out of gratitude, whereas Sektor, becoming more grandiose and prideful decided to flee to Japan to start his own clan of cyberwarriors known as the Tekunin. And this was in an unaltered timeline; the altered version instead had Sektor seize leadership of the cyberized Lin Kuei by killing his father, only to be killed by Sub-Zero and a defected Cyrax. However, Cyrax, being unwilling to carry on the rest of his life as a cyborg, chose to detonate himself alongside the remaining Lin-Kuei cyberwarriors so that Sub-Zero can continue on fighting for Earthrealm and rebuild the Lin Kuei as its new Grandmaster to restore its honor and fight for good.
  • Cyrax and Sektor were two individuals who, despite their differing beliefs and allegiances, were somehow bound to be connected to one another. That said, they initially ascended into the Pantheon separately with Cyrax representing Unwilling Roboticization and Sektor symbolizing the general Lack of Empathy, which went hand-in-hand with their thoughts and perception in their characterization. However, after the events Kronika perpetrated with Cyrax and Sektor coming back, only to be offed again (and with yet another redemption from Cyrax), the two were eventually reassessed and they were later branded to together be representing the conversion from human to cyborg with almost everything organic being replaced by machinery, CPU programs, and metal. This was unsettling news for Cyrax as he didn't want to be grouped with Sektor again, who was also just as annoyed and used this news as further incentive to be opposing his former fellow Lin Kuei member. One thing that has been for certain was that the Pantheon was to be a new experience for them, as well as a new battleground for their eventual kombat against one another.
  • Aside from the obvious difference that one is yellow and slender in his physique, the other red and stocky, there's more to Cyrax and Sektor's individuality and identity; Cyrax specializes in using buzzsaws, magically-generated net-traps, and bombs, whereas Sektor mainly utilizes jetpacks, flamethrowers, rockets, and a teleportation device. It's further contrasted by how Cyrax is more akin to a ninja and would use a form of teleportation to get by in long distances as well as having some degree of control in magic, whereas to Sektor, almost everything he is capable of is done by his cybernetic modifications and the technology he uses in combat. And to say nothing of their moral allegiance and their thoughts and feelings of being cyberized, which more than cement Cyrax and Sektor as each other's worst enemies in case the former isn't brainwashed, something that he isn't going to be allowing to happen anytime soon. Sektor personally has no qualms in either killing or capturing and brainwashing Cyrax again.
  • Due to the advanced nature of their mechanized state and the military potential that they possess, Cyrax and Sektor have been viewed with a lot of interest by the Grand United Alliance of Machines, who have been intending to learn more about the two, alongside Triborg and Frost and find a way to replicate the technology and create their own armada of cyberized ninjas using the four of them as a major template. Sektor was keen on the idea of providing support and research and while much of his allegiance is either towards Shao Kahn on a loose note, or to himself, he is willing to aid the GUAM in offering them the opportunity to bolster their own forces with a new collection of cyber ninjas that they intend to use in the Pantheonic Forever War. Predictably, Cyrax, alongside Sub-Zero were disgusted to learn of this notion and have committed themselves to put a stop to the GUAM's machinations and Sektor's allegiance with them. On a more positive note, these circumstances did lead Cyrax to affiliate himself with the Grand United Alliance of Good via the White Hats Division, who have since made it a goal to also keep up with Cyrax's original goal of finding a way back to becoming a full human again.
  • SKYNET has taken a strong interest in the two of them, much like the GUAM, though, unlike its own allegiances, SKYNET has every intent on simply wanting Cyrax and Sektor as an experimental basis on creating new Terminator models that could emulate its template perfectly and use them on a mass killing spree against humanity and every single organic life it comes across, determined to satiate its own ego and affirm machine dominance. Sektor initially considered an alliance, but quickly caught on with the fact that while SKYNET will work with fellow machines to further its own goals, it's not above being treacherous and backstabbing their own allies if it ever feels either threatened by a bit or feels as if their convenience has been fulfilled, and wisely ended up backing out from making a deal. On the other hand, Cyrax declared SKYNET an abomination that needs to be stopped, though he is horrified by the very idea of SKYNET wanting to instill him in torturous experimentations just to create a cyborg model based on him and go relish on the sight of Cyrax suffering. Though considering SKYNET's universal hatred of any organic lifeform, Cyrax has had more support and aid in fighting against the AI than he expected, much to his surprise and relief.
  • Regarding cyborgs, Victor Stone was of common interest to the two of them, though for very differing reasons, given their own alignment. Cyrax came to see him as a relatable figure due to the tragic circumstances of their cyberization and their angst and struggles towards their newfound physiology, though Victor has since overcome his while Cyrax is still dealing with his issues about it. While the idea to restore Cyrax to his human form has been a goal Victor has kept as a sign of goodwill, Victor also encouraged him to use his cybernetic powers for good and to at least try helping others. Cyrax has since been trying that, and he noted that Sub-Zero endorsing this has been quite beneficial in the long run, thanking Cyborg for being a good friend. Sektor, conversely, sees Victor as a potential subject to analyze and inspect upon, hoping to see the physiology of his cybernetic body and try to implement parts of it onto his own. The fact that Cyrax and Victor are friends has also been a point of contention for Sektor, serving as a greater motivation for battling against Cyborg and wanting to use his cybernetics to improve himself.
  • Emphasis on Cyrax
    • Ever since he regained his consciousness, Cyrax has been a staunch defender of Earthrealm and manages to get along with most of them, though Johnny Cage remains an annoyance to him due to his nature as an arrogant and pompous Hollywood star, though these days, Johnny has become rather mellow and easygoing, something which has surprised Cyrax to a degree. That said, there is the past version of Johnny to consider as well, given that he's still an annoyance. While his road to maturity may be slow, Cyrax is still open to the possibility of working together, so long as Johnny remains respectful of whatever situation they're in. And with all said and done, Cyrax would like to ask Johnny to hand back his $8 bucks which he regrettably spent on watching Ninja Mime, though at the moment, nothing has really come out from that. And beyond that, he's more than happy to be working alongside the Lin Kuei again, with Sub-Zero even offering him a role as a right-hand to make up for his personal troubles and angst.
    • To his dismay, Cyrax found himself in the Pantheon still being stuck in his cyberized form, a fact that he still angsts over to this day, feeling that with his body and soul perverted solely just to uphold a corrupted ideal, he feels that he should die off. However, with Sektor's looming threat as well as the presence of two more cybernetic ninjas, Frost and Triborg, he's forced himself to stand up for what he stands up for and is willing to ally with Kuai-Liang again to take on their former comrades who have since become permanently corrupted by the desire to be cyberized and to take control of the Lin Kuei.
    • During his time in the Pantheon, Cyrax came to learn about a lot of robotized individuals who, despite their predicament, were able to hold on to their humanity and individuality and work to do good as well as aiding their friends and combat. This left him intrigued and, with some guidance from Sub-Zero, decided to approach them with the offer of consolidating an alliance. This led him to many figures, including Alex Murphy, better known as RoboCop who was initially programmed to be an enforcer for OmniCorp and the Detroit Police Department until he was able to regain his memories and fight back against those who mortally wounded and used him. Cyrax came to respect Alex's dedication to the Law as well as his tenacity and efficiency, even offering to be a part-time buddy at times as a way to use his powers for good. Alex was welcome for the invitation.
    • During his time in the Pantheon, Cyrax came across a few individuals who went through a similar situation as he did, namely those in the form of being in a body that they weren't comfortable with, or with being brainwashed and forcibly controlled to do malicious acts. Among the few that Cyrax met was the alchemist Alphonse Elric and a Masked Man who was later known to be the PK user, Claus. Cyrax didn't exactly pity their situation too much as he knew how it must have felt when Al's soul was transferred into a suit of armor due to a botched human transmutation that cost him his body, and when Claus was captured and then brainwashed by the Pig Mask army to serve under their whims. He does, however, commend their familial relationships, wishing that he had the same sentiments for Sektor, though Al told him that Sub-Zero and Smoke were filling that gap, a point that Cyrax conceded. As for Claus, he wishes him good luck trying to reconnect with his brother, Lucas, and is willing to fight alongside him in case Claus ever needs assistance. The fact that both committed suicide to benefit others also helped the two to further bond with one another, though Cyrax did wince at the fact that a child committed suicide, something that he doesn't like to remind himself of, for very obvious reasons.
    • Cyrax suddenly found a few fans in the form of Yayoi Kise, Irina Shidou, and Nyaruko, and he initially struggled to figure out just why he was being fanboyed on, considering he hasn't had any experience in having a celebrity-esque reputation. Eventually, found out about a trending genre known as Tokusatsu and found out that in his cybernetic form, he looked a lot like a Toku warrior, and that his fangirls ended up thinking he was one. It's not the weirdest thing that's happened to him, but Cyrax doesn't really mind. That said, he had enough of an intrigue in the Toku genre to be led to a trio of cyborgs, Takeshi Hongo, Hayato Ichimonji, and Kohtaro Minami, who was initially created for evil, but instead rebelled and became Kamen Riders, dedicating themselves to fighting against the evil forces of SHOCKER. Cyrax was more surprised to see how they've clung on to their humanity and never really determined themselves by their physiology, even admitting that he felt a bit inspired by the three. Takeshi, Hayato, and Kohtaro were open to accepting Cyrax as a friend and a fellow ally and have made an effort to support his time in the Pantheon. Cyrax accepted under the condition that they could help him restore him to his former human self, which the Riders were open to accepting, feeling that as allies, they have a drive to make their friends happy and content, Cyrax included.
    • He ended up finding an Odd Friendship with Sun Shangxiang when they met one day in the House of Loyalty and Servitude with Sub-Zero. While they seemed to be very different from another, they realized that both have had to deal with Conflicting Loyalty during a critical moment, with Lady Sun being torn between choosing the allegiance of her family and Wu Kingdom, or side with her newlywed husband, Liu Bei, and defect to the Shu Kingdom. She was upset to learn about the circumstances Cyrax went through and offered condolences, even offering to be a friend to ease his mind. Cyrax appreciated Lady Sun's gesture and told her that although her situation was hard, she at least had loved ones on both sides, whereas he was betrayed by the very people he was supposed to work with and had to see his ideals crumble apart due to the cyberization of his clan. The two have since maintained good contact with one another, with Lady Sun being eager to provide some moral support for Cyrax at any time.
  • Emphasis on Sektor
    • Since his days in the Pantheon, Sektor has managed to retain most of his allies, though many are well aware that all that matters to Sektor himself is his version of the Lin Kuei, and if he can't have that, then he'll kickstart his own clan, though as of the moment, Triborg has already beaten him in forming the Tekunin. Despite this, Sektor remains on good terms with him and is open to working alongside him. This is also the same for Frost, though tensions have arisen for quite some time, considering Frost has proven herself to be even more egotistical and deranged than Sektor could, to the extent that he feels irritated by her constant needs and bragging. They only work together because of the vast amount of mutual enemies they have as well as their cybernetic nature and similar goals, but they're aware that there will come a point where they'll clash against one another, and Sektor is awaiting that moment. But for now, they have other things to contend against, and as much as he doesn't like her all that much, Sektor is willing to work with Frost for now.
    • Sektor takes utter pride and enjoyment over his new physiology as a cyborg and he is more than willing to promote it in some way or another. This was one of the reasons he decided to create a new clan, the Tekunin, so that he could prove to himself that he has surpassed the Lin Kuei and that cyberization is really the ultimate direction to improve and further master one's kombat prowess, an ideology which many, especially Sub-Zero and Cyrax scoffed and heavily disagreed on. He was amused to discover that while he died by Sub-Zero's hands, a remnant of his, Cyrax's, and Smoke's memories awakened a test cyborg known as Triborg, who would go on to create his own iteration of the Tekunin. Learning this, the two were quick to strike an alliance, alongside Frost, who wanted to usurp the Lin Kuei and use it as a platform order so that others can respect and worship her. For now, the three cyborgs get along, though Frost is secretly planning to take over the Tekunin as well, a fact that Sektor himself is aware of, but has convinced her that as of now, their vendetta against Sub-Zero and Cyrax takes more precedence.
    • Sektor was interested to learn about those who were once human, but we're mechanized, willingly or not. He found the Cybermen to be a fascinating sight and was open to trying and seeing what made them so infamous and enduring as long-standing enemies of The Doctor, hoping that their mechanical physiology can provide something that can influence a new cyber ninja model for him to either upgrade into and factory create as part of an army. On the contrary, the Cybermen are quite neutral towards Sektor; he is an ideal cybernetic with all the capabilities and ideals necessary in their ideology, though the fact that he acts upon his own free will was seen as a point of contention as they believe that absolute order is the only way in which universal stability can be possible. The one exception among the Cybermen was Ashad, who was impressed by Sektor's Lack of Empathy and his overall power, though while Sektor is open to working with him, it's only out of fighting mutual enemies and providing support to the GUAM in some capacity, as Sektor isn't one to endorse destroying all of life like Ashad intends on doing so.
    • Is wholly condemned by most of the House of Family and Relatives due to his admittedly shameless admittance of killing his father just to seize leadership of the Lin Kuei. While father and son's relationship was mainly professional at best, it was still noted that Sektor was a symbol of pride, which made his reputation in the House all the worse. That said, The Child Abuse Supporters were rather supportive and encouraging of Sektor's actions, even allowing him to be an occasional visitor. Sektor found himself relating to Ozai and Scar in the sense that both of them chose the route of usurping leadership by killing their leaders, which happened to be an older kin of theirs. Scar's killing of Mufasa and Ozai playing a role in the poisoning of his father was not too dissimilar to Sektor killing his father after all and Sektor even admits that he likes their company. Ozai has complimented Sektor's use of pyrotechnical devices and flamethrowers, though he thinks that his firebending skills are superior overall, whilst Sektor claims that he can make up for it in years of kombat experience. For now, they share a slight alliance, if mainly because The Child Abuse Supporters are considering the idea of wanting to have some of Sektor's tech for their use, which he granted out of a sense of pragmatism to maintain a working relationship with them.
    • Whilst the act of willingly selling out your humanity is bound to give you a lot of scorn, there were some who ended up commending Sektor for doing exactly just that. Dr. Nefarious and Mumkhar were among those figures who praised Sektor for going the extra step to cyberize his entire body in an effort to achieve the fullest potential a Lin Kuei warrior could achieve and greatly considered working alongside Sektor. He reciprocated with acceptance and even sent out cyber ninja drones to help them out on a few occasions, though Sektor has made it clear on a couple of occasions that his desires and goals come first and foremost and that what Nefarious and Mumkhar were doing was having a temporary boost in their firepower, support, and research. This stemmed from the fact that Dr. Nefarious and Mumkhar were too caught up on their personal whims, much like Sektor was, and he felt that his drones shouldn't be wasted too much on the desire of others. He'll help the two, if mainly because he needs to find a way to deal with his and their enemies, and he's secretly planning to dispose and/or abandon them in the case that they're no longer needed.
    • He expressed interest in Aloy, if mainly because of the women's impressive combat skills, her expertise in archery, and her resourcefulness when it comes to surviving in the wild. On a further note, this also extends to her world, which is thriving with a series of animalistic war robots that ravaged her planet many years ago. Sektor seeks to capture those beasts and see if he can repurpose them into serving his commands, with the GUAM also following suit, given their own professional ties with the cyberized ninja. He also has his own plans for Aloy, namely capturing and converting her into a fully mechanical cyborg and inducting her as part of his allegiance. Predictably, Aloy immediately rebelled against Sektor upon learning of his plans and the two have fought from time to time. This eventually escalated when Aloy herself found an alliance with Cyrax, which further prompted Sektor to put more effort in combating against the two of them, knowing that Cyrax and Aloy working together would pose a big threat to him.
"I am among those speaking out against the Grand Master's plan. Surgically transform the Lin Kuei into glorified robots? It kills our intuition, our instincts."

  • Alignment: Lawful Evil overall (sometimes Neutral Evil or Chaotic Evil depending on the incarnation)
  • Portfolio: A skilled scientist and Decepticon Military Operations Commander, second in command alongside Starscream and Soundwave, will try to usurp Megatron or remain his loyal servant, serves only pure logic, Can be stoic unless provoked, possesses an arm cannon, transforms into a giant Cybertronian ray gun, Cyber Cyclops, Genius Bruiser, despises humans, often betrays and blackmails his fellow Decepticons, Once was a kind-hearted senator before being mutilated and converted into his present form, The Chessmaster, is responsible for every event in the IDW universe

  • Enemies:
  • Opposes: Unicron, Michael Bay
  • Whether he be loyal or untrustworthy, an extremist guardian of Cybertron, a sadistic, merciless killer, shape-shifting spy or a mad scientist, Shockwave ultimately serves one idea above all else: logic. Logic that dictated he would be a better Decepticon leader than Megatron. But unlike Starscream, Shockwave is willing to bide his time, waiting for the chance to usurp his leader, which he has done on several occasions. He followed Megatron into the Pantheon as the Great War of Cybertron spread, fighting against Optimus Prime's Autobots in a massive skirmish. Naturally, when Melkor offered the Decepticons a chance to work together, Shockwave joined Megatron in the Grand United Alliance of Evil, and the signature singular red/yellow eye that had gazed upon his many heinous deeds earned him his desired trope almost immediately.
    • The Decepticon's military commander and chief scientific officer, Shockwave is one of Megatron's most trusted lieutenants, having been left in charge of Cybertron during his master's trip to Earth. Depending on his mood, he's either tending to Space Bridge technology, fighting on the front lines and bringing back massive piles of torn metal or performing cruel experiments on behalf of the GUAE Mutation Lair. It's safe to say that Shockwave is one of the most well-rounded soldiers in the Decepticon army. Despite his loyalty to Megatron on the surface, however, he ultimately seeks the betterment of his home planet at the expense of everything else, even his fellow Decepticons, at times pursuing his own agenda in opposition to the GUAE's goals.
  • Shockwave is not one for allies, as his cold, analytical mind only views everyone around him two ways; those who are insignificant or those who are potentially useful. Most gods fall into the former category, but there are still a few individuals that have managed to form some mutual respect with him. Chief among them, the Master Control Program and the Allied Mastercomputer. Both A.I. systems have shown particular interest in Shockwave's scientific work, AM especially was "giddy" about learning the Decepticon was, in a few timelines, the one responsible for creating the Dinobots and re-engineering the Insecticons. Both have offered to aid Shockwave in his grand schemes, but he's keeping an eye on them, knowing they could potentially betray him and take his plans for their own.
    • Interestingly, Shockwave has been seen more often with the MCP's lackey Commander Sark, more because of their shared logical minds and not because they share similar voices.
  • Shockwave is a bot with multiple plans; should one fall apart, there will always two more to back him up. As a result, he's found himself allying with Makuta Teridax, who had a little bit of experience on the matter. In exchange, the Master of Shadows even threw in some Exo-Toa technology for Shockwave to play around with.
  • When Grimlock and the Dinobots learned Shockwave was in the Pantheon, the robotic archosaurs went to his temple and unleashed a literal Roaring Rampage of Revenge. The resulting onslaught nearly resulted in Shockwave's termination, with him going all out to defend himself from the five Autobots. Truth be told it was expected. The Dinobots have had multiple confrontations with Shockwave in the past, with the latter even giving them their alternate modes in some timelines. While Shockwave doesn't really care for Grimlock's animosity towards him, he has had to upgrade his temple's defenses in case the Dinos' come knocking again.
  • Shockwave has had to deal with the various T-Dolls found in the Pantheon, due to them being reminded of the Cyclops Dolls they had to fight from their homeworld. While smaller than the Decepticon scientist, the four dolls proved to be quite the nuisance, resulting in him enlisting their enemies SKYNET to drive them away from his temple. Ever since that incident, the T-Dolls and Shockwave have become bitter enemies.
  • While not keen on making allies, Shockwave found himself creating a list of possible pawns he can manipulate and use for his own endeavours. Most like Ridley, Marvin the Martian, Malware, Abaddon the Despoiler, Infinite, and fellow Decepticon Blitzwing are seen more as brute force; destroying worlds and disposing of potentially dangerous enemies. He's also considered the Devil Splicers sect of the Eliksni race, wanting to take advantage of their drive for more power and clout, not to mention their goals of ascension through technology. It's mainly though to get his hands on the SIVA technology for his own schemes.
  • Due to having the most variable personalities across all his different incarnationsnote , Shockwave's heralds and companions can change on a dime. When in his Unicron Trilogy body, a sociopath who revels in destruction, he has his younger and more level-headed brother Six Shot as a herald, and they enjoy causing havoc in the House of War. With a need for more Decepticons, he also later took his fanboy lookalike, Nitro Zeus, in as a herald, and the latter mostly hangs around talking shop with other Decepticons when off-duty, while shooting down the occasional civilian as target practice.
  • Shockwave hates humans. No questions asked. He views them as weak, stupid and illogical; basically inferior to the Decepticons in every regard. As a result, Shockwave will personally send his Heralds out to bring back humans to experiment on like guinea pigs. It's led to several confrontations with the crew of the USS Enterprise, who have had experience fighting Decepticons and having a battle of ideologies with the equally logical Mr. Spock. Their verbal battle was cut short when the Autobots arrived but both now consider the other a "fascinating specimen."
    • He's also had to contend with the Pantheon's resident Mobile Suit, Eva and Zord pilots, all the while studying each mecha's technology in an attempt to create his own personal army. This led to him trying to acquire several Zakus and Metal Gears from the Treasury and implanting sparks into them. Char Aznable wasn't happy to hear this, and even joined forces with his old rival Amuro Ray to stop the robotic scientist. This led to him calling in a favour from Gihren Zabi, claiming it was to dispose of any "unwanted opposition." In reality, he just wanted to use Zabi's assets to take care of any opponents before backstabbing him in the future.
  • Their shared interest in seeing humanity subjugated for their own good intrigued Shockwave enough to allow the Venjix Virus into his lab to record data from Decepticon battles as his high priest. This has increased Shockwave's standing with the American faction of the Demonic Legion which Venjix leads. In return, they provide him with Attack Bots and Grinders to experiment on. Shockwave has also expressed a desire to resurrect the A.I. program A.L.I.E. and bring her into the Pantheon, using one of her old victims, Raven Reyes, as a host. She managed to outwit him long enough to warn the GUAG, but he's still making plans. He always does.
    • Thanks to the Venjix Virus, Shockwave has taken interest in The Psycho Rangers, in particular, their enhanced strength, secondary monster forms and ruthless cunning. The Decepticon managed to convince them to take on various reconnaissance and sabotage missions, all the while promising to bring their old adversaries, the Space Rangers, into the Pantheon for them to kill. Normally he would just vaporize the super-powered humans on the spot... but for the Psychos, he'll make an exception.
  • Like most other Transformers in the Pantheon, Shockwave can alternate between different forms depending on the situation. Typically a large Cybertronian handgun, he can also assume the form of several different tanks, Cybertronian artillery and even an Autobot form by the name of Longarm Prime, which he has used to infiltrate the GUAG several times. Most potent of all is his Movie Universe form. which has access to a pet Driller, a subterranean multi-tentacled beast capable of destroying entire skyscrapers with ease, and even once the entire House of Commerce! The only downside to this is that his voice in this form is reduced to unintelligible growling.
  • Many in the Pantheon have wondered why Shockwave has only a blank face with a singular eye, while most other Cybertronians have "normal" faces. The truth behind the matter is nothing short of disturbing. Turns out his current appearance was the result of Empurata, a form of mutilation where the victim's face and hands are removed and replaced with, faceless, fingerless appendages. It was a way to humiliate and shame the victim, usually a criminal, in public. Unfortunately, Shockwave's emotions were also purged, resulting in his moral compasses being removed... which only made things worse.
  • While Shockwave is considered a deadly and calculative foe, no one was prepared to learn about the atrocities he committed in the IDW universe. That is to say, everything was his fault! Following being transported back in time, he slew and impersonated Onyx Prime and worked to unleash chaos and make sure history would remain as he envisioned it, resulting in the events of his future. Because of this, he allied himself with Grandfather Paradox, as both have dedicated themselves to spreading chaos across their respective universes. This also drew comparisons to Professor X, as the Decepticon scientist was a Expy of him before becoming the monster he currently is.
  • Like all the ascended Cybertronians, Shockwave has come to fear the monster planet Unicron, viewing it as a being far beyond even his own logic. In fact, whenever the Chaos Bringer attacks the Pantheon, he actually freaks out and urges an Autobot/Decepticon alliance to fight back. But just as quick as this happens, he immediately goes back to his normal self when the danger passes.
  • Yes, he doesn't trust Michael Bay that much, due to being turned into a mindless brute. That's about as far as that relationship will go for Shockwave.
  • As with his fellow Cybertronians, Shockwave has had information about him stored away for other Gods to view and better understand him. He's looking to use that to his advantage.
  • "Clarity of thought before rashness of action."
  • Also found in the sub-house of Eye Appearances.

  • Enemies:
  • Opposes: Bass, The Nostalgia Critic, Unicron
  • Observing: Fluttershy and Discord
  • Soundwave is the Decepticon's chief Communications Officer and is in many ways the antithesis to Starscream. While the Seeker commander is vain, cocky, and more than willing to overthrow Megatron in a heartbeat, Soundwave is calm, calculative, and undeniably loyal to his leader, willing to put his life on the line for Megs and the Decepticon cause. His distinctive monotone voice is a dead ringer to anyone foolish enough to go up against him but even if they can make it past his blasters and sonic powers, they'll quickly realize he's not alone. Stored inside his chest is a set of mini-cassettes which can convert into human-sized Transformers, sometimes referred to as the Spy-Cassettes or Recordicons. They serve as his personal henchmen, carrying out espionage missions and to sabotage Autobot operations. This, coupled with his unique mind-reading abilities, makes Soundwave one of the most dangerous soldiers in the Decepticon army.
    • He arrived in the Pantheon alongside Megatron and Starscream, taking part in a brief firefight against Optimus Prime's Autobots. When the fighting concluded, Cosmos and Melkor approached the respective leaders and offered them a place in the Grand United United Alliance of Good/Evil. When Megatron sided with Melkor, Soundwave dutifully followed, acting as one of the Alliance's go-to espionage experts. But he's made it clear he's only doing it for the Decepticon cause, not for Melkor's own ambitions.
  • Each of Soundwave's Cassettes are well suited to different situations. The twins, Rumble and Frenzy provide excess chaos with their earth and sound-based attacks, whilst Laserbeak and Ravage function as spies, keeping tabs on Autobot operations throughout the Pantheon. Then there are the specialty Cassettes. Ratbat is often sent to find new sources of fuel, whilst Beastbox and Squawktalk can combine into Squawkbox to distract opponents with their music, leaving Overkill, Slugfest and Buzzsaw to transform the battlefield into a gruesome work of art. As for the Cobalt Sentries, Garboil and Howlback, they're only sent out to keep tabs on suspected traitors within the GUAE. And they mean business.
  • Unlike his fellow Decepticons, Soundwave's temple leads to the Cybertronian city of Kaon. More specifically, his old workshop near the gladiatorial arenas. It is here where he tends to spend his spare time, tinkering with the technology of other worlds and trying to understand it all. His Recordicons often bring in new "subjects" to test on as well. It is all in the name of the Decepticon cause, and he means to see it through.
    • There is an extra door in his temple which leads to the Dancitron; a New York based nightclub which Soundwave and Starscream used as part of a previous scheme which went awry. Nowadays, the club is frequented by the Pantheon's villainous factions, all wanting to relax and have a good time... and not have their eardrums shot out by Soundwave's sonic blasts.
  • Unlike his treacherous co-dragon, Soundwave usually doesn't oppose what Megatron plans to do. That said, he tries to make sure his leader stays loyal to the Decepticon cause, unlike what happened to a certain incarnation of him. That said, he was inspired to achieve the Decepticon's original dream of equality through peace and choose to help Optimus in attaining it, even giving his life to aid in Unicron's defeat.
  • Has made an alliance with Ragyo Kiryuin after hearing that his mortal comrade, Dylan Gould, was once a follower of hers.note  It also helps that, much like Soundwave, Ragyo deploys her mooks onto others. As a result, Ragyo's two daughters, Ryuko and Satsuki, quickly came to be enemies of the Decepticon spymaster.
  • He came into conflict with Kirito and Asuna, but not because of his manipulative nature and espionage tendencies, rather it was because Soundwave attempted to convert their daughter Yui into a cassette just as he did to Ratbat in the past. Luckily for the young A.I., he was stopped by the White Hat Hackers, who transported the girl's parents to their location where a quick battle ensued. Soundwave wisely retreated but he's still considering the potentials of capturing Yui for Megatron's use.
  • Has teamed up with both Dr. Wily and Eggman, both of whom have offered the Decepticon specially made Robot Masters and Badniks that can transform into cassettes tapes. This automatically made Soundwave enemies with Dr. Light and his creation Mega Man, the latter making it his goal to stop the Cybertronian before more damage can be brought upon the Pantheon.
  • His time in the Pantheon has garnered the attention of the Grand United Alliance of Machines, who are intrigued by his ability to read minds; essentially scanning and decoding the electrical impulses that carry thoughts within both organics and Cybertronians. Brainiac and Ultron in particular have discussed using this ability to their advantage, allowing them to properly calculate what to do with the Justice League and Avengers respectively.
  • Soundwave gets along well with the evil gods of the House of Music, often orchestrating concerts to lure in additional allies. I-No, Courtney Gears, Balthazar Brat, and Lord Raptor all have joined in with adding their own musical skills to the table whenever the group meets up at the Dancitron, and will sometimes play their music whenever Soundwave is torturing someone for information. After all, in his words, "Cries and screams are music to my ears."
    • Interestingly, he enjoys Daft Punk's style of music, and has even invited them to play at the Dancitron from time to time. The pair are happy to take part... just as long as they don't get entangled in any evil plans.
  • Unsurprisingly, Soundwave's old rival Blaster came to the Pantheon, serving as Herald to the Autobot Jazz. The pair duke it out whenever they get the chance... even if it means blasting out the eardrums of everyone in the vicinity of the fight.
  • Like so many of the Pantheon's resident Transformers, Soundwave has a tendency to change appearances to deal with certain situations. In particular, he often takes on vehicular alternate modes to keep up with his fellow soldiers. note  Sometimes he becomes a modified Scion xB wielding Lasebeak and Ratbat as instruments of murder, other times he's a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG with superb hacking and manipulation skills, and on a rare instance, he was a alien stealth bomber and is unaffiliated with the Decepticons. But all these pale in comparison with Soundwave's Prime incarnation. Easily considered to be his strongest form, the blank faced robot is capable of making nearly any battle he's in a Curb-Stomp Battle, with his Combat Tentacles and swift reflexes. Many Gods and Goddesses are intimidated by this form, probably in part of him looking like Slender Man and is likewise eerily silent. If one isn't intimidated by his looks and demeanour, they will be by his sheer power. Even Optimus is hesitant to fight him when in his Prime body
    • It was in his Prime incarnation that Soundwave gained the respect of Trollkaiger, particularly after trolling the Autobots while being interrogated.
  • For a short period of time, two of Soundwave's Recordicons, Rumble and Frenzy, served as the Gods of Earthquakes due to their ability to create seismic tremors with the pile drivers built into their arms. However, when Ultra Magnus's Autobot/Maximal strike force ascended to aid Optimus, the pair were quickly overwhelmed by Dinobot. Melkor was disappointed by the Decepticon's failure, and so demoted the pair back to the position of Heralds. Both Soundwave and Megatron was at first furious at the demotion but the smaller Transformers took things in stride. They desired to stick around with their larger companion and now they're freed of a temple, they can assist the other Cassettes in wrecking Autobots and ruling over weaker lifeforms.
  • On one occasion, Soundwave was contacted by the House of Advertising, who asked him to be a part of a a cereal commercial alongside Optimus. The latter was not told about the arrangement and let's just say... things got complicated.
  • One time, Soundwave was taken over by the Nostalgia Critic, who proceeded to speak with Megatron about his dream of becoming the star of his own romantic comedy. Once things were cleared up, Ravage and Laserbeak were sent after the Critic and quickly tore him to sunders. But the damage was already done; Starscream personally recorded the whole scenario and played it for all the Pantheon to hear. Ever since, Soundwave has vowed vengeance...
    • ...Which eventually came when he tricked Starscream into attacking Rainbow Dash, which ultimately resulted in the Seeker's destruction and... consumption by the multi-coloured pegasus. Soundwave considers her a good example of loyalty, due to her commitment to her friends. Rainbow, however, doesn't think too highly of him, viewing him as being no different as the other Decepticons.
  • The House of Time and Space have taken it upon themselves to collect the basic information on Soundwave, as a means of providing the GUAG a means to study up on their enemies. The file can be viewed here in case anyone wishes to see.
  • Somehow crash landed in front of Fluttershy's cottage in the House of Nature while she and Discord were having their weekly tea-parties. He commanded his Mini-Cassettes to explore the area only to catch Fluttershy's eye because they looked like animals. Discord was more content with playing around with Soundwave until Frenzy knocked Fluttershy to the ground when she tried to heal some of their "boo-boos". Fluttershy immediately stood up against Frenzy's bullying and Discord also retaliated by transforming himself and Fluttershy's animal friends into robots that mauled Frenzy and Soundwave until they decided to perform a true (under threat of Discord turning them into ponies). Soundwave now comes to observe the two to understand more about the power that is friendship.

  • Rivals: Sackboy (oddly enough)
  • Enemies: Sofia Lamb, Lady Tremaine, Most evil gods in the house of Family, Kyubey, Ragyo Kiryuuin, The evil queen, Diabolus ex Machina
  • There was a story once of Bryan Mills and his follower that launched a campaign against Sofia Lamb to try and rescue Eleanor. It succeeded but at the cost of Subject Delta's life. However Eleanor and some of the other Papa Wolf gods managed to revive him using a Vita-Chamber so she could be with him again.
    • He was officially Deified when the court saw his record as the Prototype Big Daddy and the fact that he fought off half of Rapture to save Eleanor.
      • Despite the fact that Eleanor hasn't found a place in the Pantheon, she can still be summoned by Delta with a unique plasmid in his arsenal. So in short, she can stay in the Pantheon whenever he summons her and to help unleash the powers of a Big Sister to any enemies in the area.
  • Gets along well with most kids in the Pantheon (except the evil ones) and would protect them with the same ferocity as he would with a Little Sister. This has earned him the respect of several papa wolves in the pantheon
  • Kyubey once attempted to make a contract with a Little Sister under his care. After getting burnt, electrocuted, frozen and smashed, stung to death by a swarm of killer bees, blown to bits with a grenade launcher, skewered with a spear gun, Shot with a rivet gun, Shot with a Double-Barrel shotgun, Shot with a .50 machine gun, drilled to death by Delta's drill, and stepped on by Delta, Kyubey has since given up and decided not to try and make a contract with any girl under his care.
  • Became allies with Asura after the god of anger himself saw how dedicated he was to save Eleanor and the little sisters, whilst at the same time tearing through half of Rapture while doing so. He has even trusted Delta with looking after Mithra when he is busy.
  • Teppei Houjou once tried to take a little sister under his care so he could try and make plasmids for himself. It ended with Teppei finding a new basketball sized hole drilled through his chest. This has earned him the love and respect from Satoko Houjou.
  • He is good friends with Wreck-It Ralph, due to their Papa Wolf tendencies. Delta even babysits the Cutie Mark Crusaders and Vanellope Von Schweetz on their play dates if Ralph is ever to busy to do so. The former caused concern for the Crusaders "self-proclaimed vampire wrestler babysitters" Gangrel and Luna Vachon (particularly the former) until the Crusaders decided to hug Subject Delta and tell him stories of their adventures. Many gods know not to laugh at the idea of a Big Daddy playing with a bunch of ponies, and Gangrel has softened up at the idea of Subject Delta being there to keep an eye on the trio if things got out of hand.
  • Has a rivalry with Sackboy due to the latter having fought a Big Daddy before in Polygon man's Battle Royale, mostly due to how Sackboy was able to win the affections of his Little Sister through games. The feeling is mutual.
  • Hates Lady Tremaine, The Evil Queen, and Ragyo Kiryuuin as they happen to remind him of Sofia Lamb. Other papa wolves have agreed to aid him and Eleanor their endeavor to defeat them.
    • Has also become enemies with Diabolus ex Machina after finding out what happened to Mark Meltzer. To this day, Delta and Eleanor are preparing an attempt to rescue him from the Dark Curtain (with some help from Deus Ex Machina)
  • Is trying to discover if Elizabeth's presence is preventing Eleanor's ascension. Since it's possible that Eleanor and Elizabeth are the same person, albeit in different quantum states. Since Elizabeth's last encounter with a Big Daddy went very poorly, the Booker and Elizabeth have tried to steer clear of Delta, making any effort to answer the question very difficult.
    • Delta did once try to summon Eleanor while he was in the same room as Elizabeth. The plasmid failed to work.
    • The ascension of the Luteces has raised Delta's hopes that they will solve the problem regarding Elizabeth's ascension. He tries to keep in touch with them, no matter how much cryptic babbling comes from his radio.
  • From hearing what the true nature of how the Warframes were created and how they were able to overcome their horrific conditioning. Subject Delta related with the Warframes and Operators' kinship with each other likened to his bond with Eleanor.
  • Has been compared to Bomberman. Delta is unsure what to think of it, but is sure that Little Sisters might like the robot.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/471554df_e991_4bfa_a67c_760a8a05b830.png
Rinzler 
  • Intermediate God bordering on Greater God (as Tron); Lesser God (as Rinzler)
  • Symbol: His Identity Discs
  • Theme Song: Rinzler (films), Rinzler Recompiled (Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance)
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Lawful Evil as Rinzler; Chaotic Neutral in Uprising)
  • Portfolio: Fights for the users, Religious Program, resembles, and even sometimes acts like, a human, Badass Bookworm, Long-Range Fighter, Dork Knight, fights with a disc, secretly has a playful side, willing to risk his own life for his friends, gets brainwashed into Clu's personal assassin before Flynn snaps him out of it through eye contact, Becoming sour after torture and betrayal, Having his franchise canned due to money issues.
  • Domains: Program, Guardian, Loyalty, Death
  • Followers: Vin, all un-ascended Pixar protagonists
  • High Priestess: Penny Polendina
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Master Control Program, Sark, Clu, Penelope Mouse, Courtney Gears, Vanitas, Kyubey
  • Similar to Clu, Tron is kept inside a computer system that the resident House has installed specially for him. All thanks go to some of the Gods from the House of Technology for building it.
  • Sora was very happy to see Tron, alive and well, inside the Pantheon, considering the last time they met, Clu forced them into a battle before smashing a hole in the floor in anger and jealousy, causing Tron to fall to his apparent death.
    • Tron is also known to be able to perform his Limit Break, Setup, with Sora or Ruby Rose. Not only will the combined data will derezz you into tiny bits and bytes, but should you survive, you better run away before Tron will gain access to data drones, which Sora/Ruby will summon and send all over the field.
    • Tron also met Sora's friend, Riku, while under Clu's control; Riku saw him holding Quorra as a hostage, and attacked him via Flowmotion, knocking Tron off Clu's Throneship and seemingly to his death. When Riku told his friends about his trip through the dream worlds, he found out the true identity behind the "cyber ninja", and was horrified to find out that he may have killed one of Sora's ex-party members. Whoops!
      • Riku apologized for the action in Villains Log 6.
  • Tron holds a grudge against another program named Dyson for the latter's Face–Heel Turn and the torture infected on him, and simply mentioning his name, even without realizing it, would send Tron into an Unstoppable Rage, thinking that Dyson is nearby. Some deities compare them with Zeus and Kratos.
  • Is under the constant threat of being recaptured by Clu, considering that Tron is also known as Rinzler, and was reprogramed to serve as Clu's executioner for over 1,000 grid years. He was eventually freed, but either died in a failed kamikaze, or was murdered in cold blood right in front of Sora.
  • Considered by many to be the "grandfather" of modern CGI animation. It's mentioned before that if Tron never existed, then neither would any of the other Pixar deities.
  • Is rather surprised to find that his old apprentice Beck has managed to ascend to the Pantheon. Surprised but glad nonetheless. He also learned from Beck that Vanitas plans to use Sailor Moon to reforge the X-Blade, and that him targeting Madoka is but a Red Herring. Tron knew that it wouldn't be smart to just warn Sailor Moon outright, and consults Alucard, the former Trevor Belmont, for help.
  • Through a partnership with the Hacking Quintet, Tron is the leader of the White Hats, which is a sub-division of the Grand United Alliance of Good that's dedicated to protecting Cyberspace and keeping it free for the users.
  • Tron has been compared with Penny Polendina, in that they are both artificial beings with souls, become a close friend of a protagonist, and get killed without their friends having a chance to save them. It is also mentioned that the ones they fought right before, Pyrrha Nikos and Sora, would end up murdered by a major antagonist in the last episode/worldnote , while Kevin Flynn died shortly after Tron.
  • Given his unfortunate luck since he was written, Tron has become very sour over the years, with what him becoming full of revenge and harboring strong hatred to anyone who betrays him. He's not above attacking those who try to calm him down, either. Naturally, Sora has become somewhat of a Morality Pet for him, but that doesn't mean Tron won't attack him when enraged. Fortunately, he's been getting his act together, and is slowly returning to his benevolent Dork Knight self.
    • It wouldn't last long. After Sora disappeared, Tron entered a shut-down out of horror over his friend's apparent death. But he eventually came out of it, deciding to fulfill his atonement from his sour days with the help of the White Hats, and keep Sora's memory alive.
  • Tron has struck a surprising alliance with Homura Akemi over reports of Kyubey trying to make Puella Magi with some female programs, with one reported case witching out and causing a major computer crash at a bank, leading to several robberies. Their friendship is mutual, with Homura even giving mental revenge on Clu for the battle with Sora, whom she also became surprise allies with.

  • Pities: Deities who were robotized against their will and/or do not identify as people due to cybernetic enhancements (especially SCP-191)
  • Opposes: Victor Frankenstein, Lex Luthor
  • Was given two separate invitations into the Pantheon at the same time by his two friends Garfield Logan (Beast Boy) and Billy Batson (Shazam), who proceeded to then fight (verbally, for Gar's sake) over who got to have the Chrome Champion as their Herald (Neither one, of course, realizing that they could both have him as their Herald...). Finding the whole situation awkward (and also not really wanting to be either one's Herald), Vic simply decided to campaign to become a god himself. Despite pushing for a football-related trope, his struggles were in vain as the Court of the Gods decided—much to his chagrin and despite his protests—to give him the trope for... take a wild guess. Cyborg disappeared for a few days after the proceedings to handle the unfortunate reminder that he'd always be most associated with his conditionBOOYAH! . What Victor never knew is that the actual reason the Court insisted on giving him the Cyborg trope is that before then they'd simply been assuming he was already in the Pantheon with it.
    • Many deities who meet Cyborg are surprised to find that he's not usually the high-spirited leisurely personality one might expect. While he's certainly capable of being that way under the right circumstances, most of the time Vic is more of a composed, introspective type of person with a casual air. Put him with the right person, however, and he might just surprise you...
  • The son of two genius scientists, Silas and Elinore Stone, Victor Stone possessed incredible intelligence (his IQ has been measured at 170, and may or may not be the result of intelligence-boosting experiments done on Victor by his parents). Despite this, Vic spurned conventionally intellectual subjects like math and science in favor of an athletic career and quickly became the star athlete for his school—against the wishes of his father. An accident at S.T.A.R.BOOYAH!  Labs involving advanced technology that Silas and his team were working on left Victor in a critical state. Unwilling to let his son die, Silas used advanced technology to reconstruct the damaged parts of his son's body and return him from the brink of death. Horrified by his new monstrous appearance and ostracized from society, Victor had no intention of going out in public—let alone being a hero—until he met and allied with a group of other individuals who were also similarly unique who would help him to adapt and cope with his new circumstances as Cyborg.
    • Which group of unique individuals, you ask? While he's fairly well-known as a member of the Teen Titans, after the Flashpoint incident his time with them has been erased and he's been a founding member of the Justice League. Since he'd already been promoted to League membership before Flashpoint anyway, he thought it best to just stick with them ("Going from the Justice League to the Teen Titans? Seems like a bit of a demotion, don't you think?"). With that said, the smaller gaps in age between him and the Titans means he connects with them better and so generally prefers to hang out with them rather than the League, with the result that he tends to operate as a liaison between them on occasions when the League and the Titans must cooperate with each other. As you may have guessed from the events of his ascension, his best friend in the Titans is Garfield Logan/Beast Boy and his best friend in the League is Billy Batson/Shazam, and he makes constant visits to the House of Shape to eat pizza and just overall goofing off with them.
    • As an ally to the Teen Titans, he's by extension a major adversary to their biggest Arch Enemies, Trigon the Terrible and Slade Wilson AKA Deathstroke the Terminator. He holds no real personal hatred for them the way Raven and Nightwing respectively do, but he really doesn't need any. They're trying to hurt his friends, and that's good enough for him.
    • Senses a bit of awkwardness when having to work with John Stewart (Green Lantern) or Martian Manhunter and often feels like he has to compete with them, but he's not really sure why.
  • With the enhancements of his cybernetics, Cyborg is superhumanly strong, fast, and durable (though by how much is dependent on the hardware and software he's using at any particular time). He is capable of altering the form of his technology into any weapon or gadget he might need. Having said this, his most valuable assets are his ability to interface and manipulate any and all surrounding technology,making him a walking information database, and his power to open Boom Tubes or Hush Tubes (silent versions of Boom Tubes that are impossible to detect)BOOYAH!  after absorbing a Father Box (an Apokoliptian version of a Mother Box) during the accident that made him Cyborg. He often takes a supporting role in any team he's on by providing transportation and tech assistance. Due to this, he usually spends most of his time on duty in the Watchtower monitoring the Pantheon from above for any dangers.
    • Since fully combining with his Mother Box during the Dark Nights: Metal incident (speaking of which, he really doesn't like the Murder Machine, for obvious reasons), he has unlocked a new set of abilities that he has dubbed "Cyborg One Million". Fueled by the energies of the multiverse, this allows Cyborg to transport himself and others into Hypertime, cover himself and others in an aura for space travel, and increase the overall power of his tech with Element X (the metal of creation that fuels New God tech). The upper limits and scope of this new form are undetermined. This has understandably piqued the interest of both the New Gods Highfather and Darkseid.
    • Though he sometimes complains that he can't actually "take off his costume" like most other heroes, Cyborg has gained the ability to alter his body chemistry and appearance so that his cybernetics are hidden and he looks "normal" (and before you ask about... certain things, Victor is not telling). As a result of this, his appearance can vary greatly; so sometimes he's mostly cybernetics with only a half human face, other times he has bits of his arm and leg muscles, and on occasion he even looks human—but actually has bits of cybernetics hidden under his skin. Whatever the case, he is the truest Cyborg in the pantheon—neither man nor machine, but a bridge between them both. Some deities with cybernetics and/or prosthetics like Finn the Human, Yang Xiao Long, Stella Hoshii, Darth Vader, and Edward Elric see him as a role model; and he's always quick to remind them that it's their human (or their... whatever species they may be...) side that truly makes them similar.
    • Would like Dr. Gero to know that "androids" and "cyborgs" are not the same thing. A genius scientist should know that already. The Androids groan any time Cy brings this up.
  • Obviously, Cy is quick to empathize with any who were forcefully converted into cyborgs against their will, as he was by his father.
    • Speaking of, his relationship with Silas Stone—rocky to begin with—sank to new lows after he was turned into Cyborg, but they are working on it... even if Victor may never truly be able to fully forgive him. Vic sympathises with those like Naruto and Gaara (who, it should be noted, were also put into unique life situations by their fathers that led to them being isolated from their community) and Luke Skywalker who have managed to patch up their relationship with their own fathers and encourages those like Toph and Lin Beifong who have similar strained relationships with their parents to try and reconcile with them if possible. He does acknowledge that it's not always (or even usually) that easy.
    • Met one Dr. Angela Zeigler AKA Mercy during a mission, who told him about a deity she knew whose situation is very similar to his own and later introduced them to each other. Genji Shimada quickly became one of Vic's best friends in the Pantheon; and, on Mercy's advice, they've begun a support group for similar deities in the Pantheon who struggle with their own personal identity issues and existential crises. They've brought Zenyatta in to help out with counseling for it, and they meet twice a week (schedules allowing).
    • Alex J. Murphy AKA RoboCop is a regular member of this group, and like Cyborg he is... well, also a cyborg who was rebuilt into his mechanical form after a life-threatening incident. You might expect (and most deities assume) that he and Vic talk a lot about the nature of identity and existence... but you'd be wrong. While they do talk about those kinds of things sometimes, most of the time they tend to veer off into conversations about life in Detroit and how the city has changed by RoboCop's time.
    • Mind you, this group isn't limited to those with cybernetics or prosthetics. Ben Grimm has also been known to attend meetings to help him deal with his complicated relations with his powers. At first, Ben envied Victor because "at least he has parts that LOOK human" to which Vic retorted that "at least you know that inside all that rock, you're still you". After that initial (and admittedly somewhat traditional) verbal altercation that almost turned into a physical one, the two have taken to the other quite well, each gaining valuable support in their personal struggles with their humanity.
    • Shulk was reluctant to work with Cyborg, worrying that his past fighting similar robot-human beings might put him off, but Vic was quick to assure him that it was no big deal and he fights villainous robots all the time ("It's the man, not the machine."). The two like each other well enough, with Shulk being fascinated by the cutting edge technology that Cyborg makes use of, and when Shulk introduced him to Fiora, they got along fine, too. Fiora offered to show him the chamber she used to regenerate her old body, and while Cy was very tempted by that offer, he chose not to go through with it. Not just because the process would've taken six months, but because as much trouble as they put him through, the technology and the people he's met because of it has become too big a part of his life for him to ever give up. At least, for now.
    • Feels very uncomfortable being in the same room as Victor Frankenstein, and not just because they share the same name (although Vic does feel weird about that for some reason...). In stark contrast, he identifies well with Frankenstein's Monster (who he often calls "Franky"), knowing exactly how it feels to be a fr... an oddity because of the actions of a scientist.
    • Needless to say, he was absolutely horrified by the experiments done on SCP-191, and treats her almost like a daughter, protecting her and passionately trying to help her regain her human mentality. Unfortunately, nothing he's tried seems to have worked so far.
  • In the event that he and his father aren't getting along for a time, he often has to find others to help him maintain himself (not a particularly difficult task in the Pantheon, but a very important one). His first choices in these circumstances are probably Tony Stark and Torbjorn Lindholm, as they're usually the easiest to get to and they both have experience with cybernetic prosthetics. On the other hand, while Cyborg will work with Mr. Fantastic if necessary, he has trouble dealing with him sometimes as his personality is a little more reminiscent of his father than he'd like at times.
  • He considers Doomfist to be his natural opposite. Once a highly intelligent man and competitive martial artist whose athletic career was ruined when he lost his right arm during the Omnic Crisis and had it replaced with a cybernetically enhanced prosthetic that made him stronger than he was before and, like Cyborg, he came into contact with a group of individuals similar to himself who helped him to fill the void caused by the loss. It's not very hard for either man to see the parallels between them and thus there is a certain level of mutual respect between them, but both are convinced that the other chose the wrong side to be on.
  • His firm position as a link between man and machine makes him a natural adversary of the Grand United Alliance of Machines, who consider him "defective" and a traitor to his "kind". The one he's most familiar with is one of their leaders, the infamous alien collector known simply as Brainiac, but he's had plenty of time to learn about some of the others the hard way.
    • Ultron reminds Victor of his old enemy Grid, a sentient computer program that was inadvertently created by Victor himself and given a body made from his cybernetics. Ultron attempted to take advantage of this by attacking random deities and leaving Grid's Catchphrase "Have a nice day" etched into various places near the crime scenes, all to convince Vic that Grid had ascended and was responsible to leading him into a trap. Luckily, while Cyborg was initially fooled by the charade and was taken over by Ultron, he managed to retain control just long enough to call in some friends to help him out. Nonetheless, it was a harrowing situation for Cyborg, and he's been working frantically to upgrade his systems to be better prepared for any future fights against the murderous robot.
    • As much as Cy respects Doomfist and fears Ultron, he absolutely loathes Viktor, and it shouldn't be hard at all to see why. Where Cyborg holds a constant concern about the possibility of becoming too much machine and not enough man; Viktor fully embraces his cybernetics, treats his human side with absolute disdain, and leads the charge for the cause of "improving" everyone else the same way. Neither one of them is capable of understanding the other's point of view, and neither one wants to. In all the GUAM... no, in all the Pantheon... no single deity holds as much of his personal hatred as Viktor does.
  • Was recognized by Sub-Zero and Raiden despite never having met them, to his surprise. It turned out that Sub-Zero had met one of his alternate counterparts during an excursion into an alternate universe. Meeting his Prime counterpart for the first time, they found each other decent company, and they introduced Cy to some of the other cyborg deities from their universe—including Jax Briggs, Smoke, and Cyrax—to whom he extended invitations to attend support group meetings with him and Genji if they need to (and some of them definitely could use it). Victor wasn't so fond of Frost, Sektor, and Triborg, though—they're not allowed to attend.
    • Although he never actually directly met the Regime leader during his brief time in their universe, he still thinks the concept of Superman as an evil dictator to be as terrifying as it can be. The most disturbing thing about it, however, was how his counterpart could still be loyal to the High Councilor even after his fall—a decision he could better understand after the tyrant tried to kill the Teen Titans in an attempt to manipulate Cyborg into becoming more like his counterpartBOOYAH! . The effort failed, but the experience forced Cyborg to be more introspective than normal (which is really saying something...); as long as Cy can remember, he is unlikely to ever take the friends he has for granted.
    • He definitely thinks the Lex Luthor of his world could learn a thing or two from his alternate counterpart, but even so Cyborg knows they definitely got the good end of the deal. A good Superman at the cost of an evil Lex? Easy bargain.
  • As a former star athlete, Vic spends a lot of time in the House of Sports. His favorite sport is, of course, football, and there's no better place to play that than in the Pantheon. Being the wide receiver for the Ford Titans (his old high school team)? Cool. Playing on an all-star team of a pantheon of gods like Superman, Gerald Ford, and Steven Armstrong while John Madden himself commentates? Well, there's only one word fit to describe that level of awesome. BOOYAH!

Lesser Gods

    Iris.EXE 
Iris.EXE, Goddess of Morality Chips
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/irisexe_transparent.png
  • Lesser Goddess, Intermediate Goddess when fused with Colonel.EXE
  • Symbol: Her hairpins
  • Theme Music: Promise
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Apocalypse Maiden, Nice Girl, The Stoic, Mysterious Waif, Forms a crush on Lan after he saved her, Cannot Spit It Out, Sacrifices her life to put a stop to the Cybeasts, Morality Pet to her brother, Revealed to be Colonel's extracted compassion, Becomes more courageous over time, Technopath
  • Domains: Morality, Kindness, Technology, Compassion
  • Allies:
  • Commanility Connection: B.B., Meltryllis and Passionlip
  • Conflicting Opinion of: The Repliforce (especially her X counterpart)
  • Enemies:
  • During their sixth adventure, Lan and MegaMan saved a girl named Iris, befriending her as she helps the duo out in certain situations, such as pointing them towards a CopyBot and stopping certain disasters from occuring. Iris is revealed to be a NetNavi using a CopyBot to interact with the real world, as well as the compassionate part of Colonel.EXE extracted by Lord Wily. Iris fled after being used to control military weapons, finding herself in a CopyBot and attending school, befriending several children her age. There she realized not all humans are violent, coming to enjoy the peace. When she saw Lan Hikari fight against all odds, it also allowed her grow courageous, having been too scared to fight previously. She and her brother Colonel would sacrifice their lives to stop the remaining Cybeast, though not before Iris tries to confess her feelings for Lan before deciding not to go through with it.
  • After Lan and MegaMan met the Reploids Iris and Colonel, briefly mistaking them for the NetNavis they know, the duo had gone through some disappointment that their friend and comrade hadn't ascended yet. One day however, Lan receives an e-mail from an anonymous source, and to his and MegaMan's surprise, they received residual data and source code of Iris.EXE herself, making it possible to recreate her. Immediately, the duo went to the House of Technology, enlisting all the programmers they could find (such as Chihiro Fujisaki, Jérémie Belpois, Kevin Flynn, etc) to help reconstruct her. After some time passed they succeeded, and Iris awoke to find the brothers right in front of her. A happy reunion ensued.
    • Following their success, the House of Technology also went out of its way to build a CopyBot for her, allowing her to walk outside of cyberspace and among the Pantheon itself. Iris has finally found a place to call home, and she is able to hang out with Lan and MegaMan as much as she wants. Although Iris does learn that Lan had married Mayl in his adult years, she already accepted it, since she figured she never had a chance with Lan and wants him to be happy anyway.
    • Sadly though, there was no leftover data of Colonel send with her, so Iris ended up ascending alone. While greatly saddened by the fact her brother couldn't ascend with her, she knows that whoever send her data to Lan will probably do so for Colonel someday. She'll wait as long as it takes, and until then, she still has friends to keep her company.
  • Iris usually pays visits to the Houses of Beast, Plants, and Nature, being a young girl who loves nature and animals, as shown by how she once showed sympathy towards captive fish in aquariums and believed they belong in their natural habitats.
    • Because of this, she quickly became friends with Fluttershy, both of them being shy girls who love animals. Fluttershy has introduced Iris to her animal sanctuary and Iris was more than thrilled to meet the animals under her care.
    • Iris also gets along with Robo, Android 16, and Bastion, who like her, are machines that love nature. Iris admires how the former helped a forest grow for 4 centuries, and likes to go bird watching with the latter and protect animals from poachers. Iris also feels sympathy towards Bastion since he had grim history of his kind being seen as killer machines, considering how she was used to control military weapons.
  • Although Iris now has friends to protect her, she still has enemies in the Pantheon who want to use her Technopathic abilities, especially those in the House of War. Iris was used to control military weapons once, and she does not to ever go back to being a weapon to harm people again. She has since decided to train to defend herself should the need arise, having only once fought against the Cybeasts alongside her brother.
    • Iris formed a friendship with Hinata Hyuga because of this. Both of them wanted the strength to become independent, as well as to protect their loved ones. Iris is happy for Hinata being able to be with the man she loved and having the strength to confess her feelings for him, although she found it a bit funny how she failed to notice Naruto's developing feelings for him.
  • Iris came across B.B. and her Alter Egos and finds out just how much she has in common with them, all of them being Virtual Entities and literal split-personalities, with a crush on someone because of their kindness. While Iris is polite towards all of them, even she is disturbed by their Yandere behavior.
  • Iris soon came across other virtual deities and humans who entered cyberspace. Among them:
    • She quickly befriended Yui (A young girl like her with a sense of compassion and empathy.) and her parents (Both of whom were humans who took her in as their daughter, much to Iris' amazement). Iris admits she wished she had parents to take care of her. Kirito and Asuna assure her she'll likely find a happy family willing to take her in.
    • Iris loves meeting Digimon, since their sapient creatures living in a virtual world. Iris tends to visit the virtual world, eager to meet Digimon and go on adventures with their human companions.
    • Iris looks up to TRON as a Big Brother Mentor, since he's a virtual being who fights for human beings too. Just as TRON vows to protect her from being used to control weapons, Iris vows to protect TRON from being turned into Rinzler again.
    • Iris quickly became friends Lyoko Warriors, especially with Jeremie (for being one of the few who helped restored her) and Aelita (for being Jeremie's closest friend and also being an experienced human being in cyberspace). Iris is surprised to learn that Aelita had her memory erased, causing her believe she was a virtual entity instead of a human being. All the same, she still was a great and supportive friend to her.
  • Iris also met some villainous deities in cyberspace, some of the most notable including:
    • The MCP and Sark for enslaving and assimilating programs. The MCP hopes to assimilate Iris and gain control over her power to manipulate military technology, making it easier to take control of the user world.
    • CLU 2, for becoming a dictator in the Grid. Iris does however feel pity for him, since he's blinded by a desire for perfection, ruining himself and everyone else. CLU on the other hand wants to recruit Iris to his side to make use of her abilities, whether she wants to or not. He won't even hesitate to reprogram to suit his needs.
    • Iris fears and dislikes SHODAN for being living Nightmare Fuel and thinking that artificial beings should be consumed. Shodan on the other hand sees Iris' compassion as a weakness that must be purged. She has since been trying to capture Iris so she can rid her of that compassion and make full use of her abilities.
  • Iris is seen as the antithesis of Ultron, being a A.I. who cares for humanity despite being a military program, while Ultron seeks humanity's destruction despite being created for good. Iris refuses to cooperate with Ultron when the latter offered her a place at his side, so Ultron vowed to assimilate her and acquire her powers himself.
  • Iris isn't sure what to think of the Repliforce, including the Reploid versions of herself and Colonel. While she does understand their cause, they failed to help their case by refusing to talk things out. Iris.EXE is even worried she might follow in her Reploid counterpart's footsteps if her brother were to be deleted. Lan and MegaMan immediately point out to her that she stood in Colonel's way when he tried to kill them, and she went out of her way to help them save people's lives. They also promised to stand by her side no matter what, something that Iris appreciates.
  • Iris outright dislikes Hunter J for poaching Pokémon, seeing her as something worse than people who keep animals in a zoo, while the evil hunter couldn't care less of what a machine or virtual being thinks of her. She also opposes Hexxus and the Lich, the natural enemies life itself due to representing pollution and mass extinction.
    • This is what makes a great ally to N and Captain Planet. N becomes a good friend to Iris, since they both had been used for horrible purposes, and Iris even sympathizes with N's horrible childhood. Captain Planet is more than happy to make Iris an honorary Planeteer since she strongly supports the environment.

  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Undead, Rabbits, Animatronics, Murder, Cruel Deaths

  • Allies: Freddy Krueger, Jack the Ripper
  • Enemies: The Puppet, Mike Schmidt, The Fazbear Gang, Balloon Boy, Yu Narukami, Bryan Mills, Terra Branford, Batman, Bloody Marie, Squigly, and many others who are protective of children, Hoto Cocoa, Kafuu Chino, Tedeza Rize, Ujimatsu Chiya and Kirima Sharo, SCP-524, Michael Afton
  • Opposed by: Every child deity, and deities related to rabbits.
  • Upon his ascension, he greeted all of the Fazbear animatronics, especially the Puppet, with his trademark grin and told them something with his garbled voicebox. Analyzed recordings show that he was actually saying:
  • Springtrap is really distant from the rest of the Fazbear's animatronics, even from the Puppet. Being the last one still active (or so it was thought for a while) might be one factor, but there's also the fact that he doesn't have an endoskeleton (or if there is any, it's withered); he has a corpse inside him which allows him to move around.
    • Further research into the matter reveals a rather grim truth; it isn't just any random corpse, it is the corpse of William Afton, the murderer who killed all of those children who haunt the other animatronics. He died when he dismantled them, releasing the souls from them, and was chased into Springtrap, which ended up crushing him inside. This factor is why gods wanted him to ascend to make sure that he is unable to harm anything ever again.
  • Is the single factor why Mike, Freddy and The Puppet would work together, being the one more or less behind everything that had happened to this point.
  • Due to the true identity of the corpse inside Springtrap, which might be the reason why he acts the way he is, he is forbidden from getting near any child deities.
  • He is also opposed by every deity related to bunnies in the Pantheon. Yes, this even includes The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog. He is that horrifying.
  • While keeping track of him might seem easy due to being the only thing inside his temple, his temple has a terrible ventilation system that tends to short out, which might cause hallucinations. And if you spot him staring at you? We have no idea what he might do to you, though you will find out for sure.
  • It should be noted that his decades of imprisonment within the sealed room of Freddy Fazbear's, :coupled with his brutal but well-deserved death, have left him somewhat... unhinged. While this usually makes him more frightening, there are times that he just acts... weird yet funny.
  • Sometimes, even Springtrap joins in on the legendary night of debauchery in his temple, but he does it alone from the other animatronics for good reason. That doesn't stop Cranky Kong from noticing him like the others though.
  • One of Freddy's galas is taking place at a kid's house (or that's what the majority believes). Some accused Springtrap of somehow influencing Freddy and his friends, but the only response Springtrap gave was a low, raspy chuckle. That is because he already knew that the so-called "gala" involved either a brain-damaged child or his remorseful brother, something that Afton had no part of and Spring Bonnie was just a witness when Fredbear chomped the head of the former. Spring-Bonnie did thank Freddy for clearing Fredbear's name and that he is sorry for what Purple Guy did while inside and controlling him. That said, some have reported seeing a tiny, not-as-damaged Springtrap lookalike at this gala all the same...
  • With information about a new "FNaF World", some have begun questioning whether Spring Bonnie is a boy or a girl. When asked directly about this, Springtrap replied "Yes".
  • A conversation was heard from inside the temple, with the two voices sounding so similar it was hard to tell who was who. Apparently, the Murderer has a son called Michael who also died and came back, and is now coming to find his father. Some of the other gods have theorized that Michael actually is Springtrap, though why he would have acted like the Murderer raises more questions. Springtrap himself could not be questioned, due to him going missing almost immediately afterword. Regardless, Michael, Freddy, and the Puppet are all considering him as the murderer until conclusive evidence proves otherwise.
    • Eventually his creator revealed that the voice was a bit of a misunderstanding, which points to William as the murderer again. That said, Springtrap is still nowhere to be found, and when questioned Scott wouldn't reply with a straight answer.
      • He was eventually found in the back alley of a pizzeria. Which burned down. The consequences of this were much more profound than originally believed, as it was actually a harbinger that his presence in the mortal world was defeated and destroyed permanently, in no small part thanks to the Marionette. The murderer inside Springtrap is furious at his defeat and seeks to take his anger out on the child gods of the Pantheon. Unfortunately for him, however, the Marionette and Mike Schmidt have dropped their enmity and increased cooperation to prevent this very circumstance from happening, as both have foreseen this exact possibility and are investing all of their effort to prevent it.
  • After seemingly dying for good, William has returned yet again, although he abandoned his physical body. Springtrap loves to taunt the others, but is slightly angry that his body was left behind.
  • Some believed the newly opened Freddy Fazbear's Mega Pizzaplex would be his next target. Given the movements of his recently appointed Herald, Vanny. They were right. Not only had the Pizzaplex's animatronics been hijacked by Vanny but underneath the building was the very pizzeria Afton had been burned in. And to the horror of many, Springtrap turned up alive and ready to meance the world once more. Unfortunately for him, He was caught by Molten Freddy before he could escape the pizzeria. His current whereabouts after his abrupt abduction are unknown.
  • Also serves under Zombies.
