  • Henry is the younger son of his namesake Henry the Seventh, whom won the War of the Roses. Though second in place to his brother Arthur, the death of said brother would propel him into history as King Henry the Eighth. Unlike his miser father he was frugal, warm, romantic and sporty. However an infatuation with his mistress compounded by "the king's issue" of needing a prince would turn English politics and religion upside down, transforming him into one of the most notorious and dramatic kings the British Isles ever had.
  • Has always been vexed to produce an heir. Despite conceiving eleven children through three wives and a mistress, only four ever lived to grow up; two daughters, one an illegitimate son and one legitimate son. It is no exaggeration to say he reshaped English history to get the son he wanted, and to say the least he was infuriated upon learning Edward would die as at fifteen after his death. Learning about the success of his daughter Elizabeth has led him conflicted to say the least, commenting "it seems God intends to humble me, by making my greatest heir the daughter of that treacherous Anne."
    • His illegitimate son Henry Fitzroy may be a vampire, but he considers this nonsense.
  • He dislikes the Matsuno Sextuplets, as their parents managed to produce six sons.
  • Remarkably similar to Robert Baratheon; they both were strong and handsome yet became fat, have unhappy marriages/relationships, love to eat and have a cynic disposition. The two are good friends, and both like to complain about Cersei Lannister. The Tudor king is disdainful towards her due as her incestuous adultery reminds him of Anne Boleyn, whom he still insists was a cheating witch. He hates Melisandre even more due to being a witch and a pyromaniac fundamentalist, combining the worst perceived aspects of Boleyn and his daughter Mary.
    • He does share antagonism for Irene Adler with Cersei though, as he assumes she's Anne Boleyn. Also thinks James Moriarty is further proof of her scheming nature.
  • Often seen hanging out in the Houses of Leadership and Royalty, as one might expect. Being a fat, hungry king he's gotten along rather well with King Dedede. Learning that King Arthur was in the pantheon pleased him greatly, and he immediately went up to him to essentially fanboy over Arthur. Still hasn't gotten over how the other Arthur is a woman, though.
  • He's (in)famous for divorcing England from the Catholic Church and setting up his own Church of England, all to definitively annul his marriage with Catherine of Aragon and no longer be subject to the Holy See. Alexander Anderson is still not over it and remains pissed at his actions. He would tear down monasteries and strip them for resources, filling his coffers despite disliking his father's own miserly behavior. Made himself more unpopular by hiring the Sherrif of Nottingham for this task.
  • Has tried to loot the many valuables belonging to Smaug in order to fund his religious endeavors, but this hasn't gone anywhere as Smaug keeps killing his men
  • He has always had a big appetite, setting up lavish feasts-feasts he often helps plan out for the House of Food, of which they are greatful. He's even got into some friendly eating contests with Pac-Man. However he was able to balance it out with physical activity. Eventually numerous injuries and comfort eating, combined with horrible leg ulcers would cause him to let himself go. At his death, he was so fat he needed help to be moved around. To fit these maladies, he has gone to the House of Health and Diseases, paying Asia Argento a pretty penny to help with him. Naturally he's worried about Typhus and Nurgle.
  • He's rather friendly towards Rhaegar Targaryen, as they both ended up fundamentally changing the kingdom due to their love for another woman; Lyanna Stark and Anne Boleyn respectively. Rhaegar would rather not be associated with Henry, and is quick to point out that they're not that alike; he kept on loving Lyanna, while Henry would later grow tired and execute Anne.
  • At one point he accidentally married Amy Pond of all people, though this was quickly rectified and historical records ignore this. So do they forget that the Doctor in his tenth incarnation married his daughter. He's not sure what to think about either of them, but is at least glad that the Doctor is fond of the nation he rules.
  • Heard of his daughter's fondness for William Shakespeare, and requested a visit to the Globe Theater of his temple. Henry ended up enjoying his works, and is a recurring visitor. William is fine with this, but doesn't like to hang out with him that much.
  • Rather dissatisfied with Marge Simpson's retelling of his life, and comparison towards Homer. He executed two of his six wives, but he's not as much of a bluebeard as she states.
  • Once confused Superman with his old friend Charles Brandon, simply because they looked alike.
