  • Some species have access to advanced technology and understanding of the universe, more so than any contemporaries. And some are so advanced that for all intents and purposes, they are gods. The Xeelee are known for being one of the most ludicrously advanced and powerful races out there. Their technology makes sense so long as you have a PhD or two. They have clear goals, even if they're on such a grand scale they're hard to grasp. These are beings who can use galactic clusters as building blocks on their off-days, and their reaction to humanity using neutron stars as ammunition and control over galaxies was basically "Cut that out, humanity. We're a little busy right now." It is no exaggeration to say that the Xeelee are masters of their universe.
  • The Xeelee are among the most powerful beings in the Pantheon bar those above the likes of universes themselves. Some of the most dangerous and powerful individuals within the Pantheon are more or less not even noticed by them, and when they are, the Xeelee usually respond with annoyance at best. With all the harm he has caused, there's something cathartic that they treat Zamasu, who's livid to see "mere mortals" possess such power and mastery over space-time, as a bratty child they will put into time-out if he pushes his luck. They rarely interact with the Trope Pantheon seeing virtually everyone there as lesser races, but when they do it's usually to help. Their ascension came with the promise of bringing the Bolder's Ring alongside them as a means of allowing them to escape doomed universe.
  • Technically speaking virtually everyone in the Trope Pantheon is made of baryons like the Xeelee, but that does not mean the Xeelee are all that recognizable in their composition. They are living defects of space-time living in symbiosis with bose-einstein condensate superfluid creatures...effectively an Eldritch Abomination were it not for the fact they could exist under theoretical physics. They can use black holes as habitats and construction devices, as well as computers. Their Nightfighters are built of pure spacetime, and can have wingspan of miles...which doesn't dissuade the Hall of Otherness Abominations from giving them honorary membership. The Vex were pretty jealous of the attention they were getting, since the Xeelee virtually succeeded in their goal of reshaping reality to better suit them...and the "virtually" is because the Photino Birds are a thing.
  • Given they are essentially living space-time, the Xeelee have the eye of Yog-Sothoth...who is simultaneously space-time itself, and exists outside/beyond it. What the Outer God has in mind for them, however, has not been discerned. He might just look favorably on their goals and nature, as alien as he is probably the most approachable Outer God. Blue-and-Orange Morality still applies to both factions, though. This meeting took place (by mortal understanding of it) in the Hall of Space Manipulation. During the conversation Sirius was looking at the black hole computers they use with some envy, and is annoyed that they are so powerful he has to resort to scrounging some abandoned tech. Asides from Bolder's Ring, the Xeelee have some extremely advanced tech that they are still comfortable with the Trope Pantheon studying it, unless they fall under the "enemies/opposed by" list. Here's some notable creations.
    • Much of the Xeelee's general technology uses exotic matter, which they refer to as "Construction Material". Professor Farnsworth wonders if they utilize "electro-matter; matter's badass grandma". This material is developed from Xeelee flowers, and in spite of its density. Construction material violates the Pauli exclusion principle because it allows electrons to share quantum states.
    • Their patented ship, the Nightfighter. They are made of defects of space-time and uses cosmic string and domain walls. It also functions with a discontinuity drive, hyperdrive, and is armed with a starbreaker weapon. To date no-one in the House of Travel has managed to reverse-engineer one. It is worth noting that even their derelict ships are so advanced that many civilizations find it easier to scavenge their technology from Xeelee tech than to innovate on their own.
    • The Sugar Lump. A perfect cube the size of a small moon, which appears to serve no purpose. In actuality, it is one of many devices the Xeelee use as part of a Stable Time Loop to essentially create themselves; they're so skilled at Retroactive Preparation they've given themselves a multi-billion-year technological jump straight from the beginning.
    • The Xeelee Belt. A circle a light year in circumference located in the center of the galaxy, by rotating at relativistic speeds distances are compressed and time drastically slowed. It's meant to preserve a community of Xeelee into the very far future, when they will be able to tap dark energy for their own purposes, but the immense surface area and energy flows have attracted lesser species as well.
  • The Xeelee's technological prowess absolutely sweeps the Haltmann Works Company out of the water, and considering how impressive their tech is that is really saying something. The only thing they even have access to that is comparable to what they can make is the wish-granting supercomputer Star Dream, who the Xeelee believe it may be best for the lesser races if they monitor it as well. Susie is positively giddy at what the Xeelee have managed to create and it would cause her jaw to drop if she had one. Magolor is just as awestruck and theorizes that they are advanced enough to have plausibly been the mythical Ancients who built the Clockwork Stars, of which Star Dream is one. The Flood were shocked, but also kind of frightened by a force that could completely outclass them. And even if they can infect technology, due to the exotic matter used in Xeelee construction material Flood corruption is impossible.
  • Aloof, but hardly malevolent. They aren't all that fond of the Ur-Quan Kzer-Za using precursor technology to dominate lesser races. They have attempted to take some leftover Xeelee tech as it would be an Instant-Win Condition, only for the hyper-advanced race to interfere as they would prefer a much weaker 'verse not go Off the Rails with any of their "toys". The New Alliance Of Free Stars has the more advanced Chmmr try to set up diplomatic relations. They appreciate the spirit, but warned them they aren't reliable even if they like them. One of the races the Xeelee respect are the Chozo, as they are also Benevolent Precursors albeit more pro-active. One of the races the Xeelee are more critical on are the Incubators. They believe their goal of trying to thwart heat death is a noble one, however consider their efforts woefully inefficient. After all, when you have technology that can break or bend the laws of thermodynamics, trying to get around it by exploiting the emotions of magical girls is a waste of time. It's worth noting that this doesn't have anything to do with how immoral it is unlike most of the Incubator's critics, since while amiable humanity is still very small in their eyes.
  • Their amiable nature is a point of contention between the Xeelee and the Anti-Spiral (one of few races comparable to them) as the latter feels the former should rule their cosmos with an iron fist to prevent things like the Spiral Nemesis from happening. The Xeelee are not fond of the Anti-Spiral given their attitude, though it is more the latter opposing the former than anything as they which they would just "get over themselves". That said, they are keeping their eyes on Team Dai-Gurren because at the height of their usage of Spiral Power they became so OP the Xeelee were impressed. They wonder if Spiral Power could be analyzed and used as a way to overcome the Photino Birds.
  • The Xeelee are also interested in the Throne, one of very few technologies greater than anything they can muster. Though they claim not to take favorites in who sits on the Throne, they aren't shy in preferring Ren Fujii as a Hadou God and their reaction to Hajun was basically "why, God, why?!" The Xeelee tried to calm down by communication with the Heptapods. Yes, they are significantly less advanced than them but the Heptapods have a number of similarities to the Xeelee; they are benevolent aliens with a non-linear perspective and usage of time travel. And they've both helped out less advanced races. The Xeelee are hoping to see good things from the Heptapods in the future.
  • Their 'verse is memetic in the height of its Technology Levels; it's where the "Xeeleestomp" term/meme comes from. Having power on a multi-universal level is the minimum for the Xeelee to treat you seriously. Officially, they are considered a Type IV civilization. It's also a 'verse that is known as a setting even darker than Warhammer 40,000. The Xeelee looked at the xenophobic, oppressive, broken Imperium and mused "so this is the Interim Coalition of Governance would be like as "good" guys". The Emperor of Mankind looked up the context of this quote, and he was horrified there's a version of mankind worse than the Dark Eldar. He really doesn't like the sheer power and influence of the Xeelee or the many races in their 'verse that could stomp the Imperium. He's not going to start a war he knows he's going to lose as he's not an idiot, but that doesn't stop him from feeling intimidated.
  • Furthering the Emperor's annoyance, his malding is seen as pouty by them. After all, this is a race who gave some leniency to humanity after literal millennia of pointless war with them. And The Chaos Gods? Lost for words as they truly have nothing to offer the Xeelee. There are other aggressive races that don't like the Xeelee; the Grox hate all other life in the galaxy unless they really work towards befriending themnote , but the Xeelee can stomp races that could stomp the Grox in a day's work so they just think they should get over themselves. The Combine are a trans-dimensional force of alien invaders that raid other universes for their own gain, but surprisingly poor with galactic transportation and travel so the Xeelee see them as annoyances at best.
  • One of the few races to actually be comparable to the Xeelee are the Time Lords. And by that, we mean the Time Lords at the height of their power. This isn't surprising as both races have used incredibly advanced time travel to help establish themselves as functional sovereigns of their own universe, and their incredible technology to shape reality to better fit their purposes. During the Last Great Time War the Daleks were advanced enough as to legitimately be considered a threat by the Xeelee. Both races aren't nearly as powerful after the conflict, though there are still weapons like the Reality Bomb even they can't treat lightly. The Xeelee aren't particularly fond with either race's actions, and they applaud the Doctor for his actions of actually helping out the universe. With the universe of Xeelee Sequence being like a never-ending Time War, he appreciates that they actually live up to their title of Baryonic Lords.
  • The Xeelee are advanced enough to be comparable to cosmic beings like Galactus. They are one of very few races capable of fully comprehending the technology on his ship, which even Reed Richards can scarcely comprehend the basics. The Planet Eater is ambivalent though mostly amiable to them as he's only ever known very few Type V civilizations, and the Xeelee are generally benevolent. They have a civil relationship with Uatu the Watcher, as they get his race's aloofness but they do respect how Uatu will occasionally intervene when necessary...and the Watchers' hesitation is understandable since mass destruction occured when they shared their tech. And him monitoring the multiverse is a positive in their eyes. The Celestials were quite impressed by the Xeelee and that respect is mutual; they predate the fundamental existence of science itself and just one can birth, unmake, or reshape a universe. That said, their relationship with these two races is more mutual intrigue than an outright alliance.
  • There is one race that they fear; the Photino Birds. Dark matter is significantly more common than baryonic/regular matter, and they terraform the universe to better suit them. For other life, this takes the form of accelerating heat death. And they succeeded in changing their universe, all while blissfully unaware what they did was mass xenocide. Yes, the Xeelee fought a multi-billion year war with the Photino Birds and they still lost. The Dark Multiverse being a reactive realm of dark matter managed to strike a chord of fear with the Xeelee and they seek to put an permanent end to the evil of Barbatos once and for all. The Xeelee have pleaded their case to the Living Tribunal, who has had his eye on them for some time and he has decided he should interfere. That said the Living Tribunal is still aloof to the Xeelee. The idea of a being more powerful than them being helpful yet aloof is an irony not lost on the Xeelee. The Living Tribunal has mused that it's quite something that a race from a hard sci-fi series has actually managed to be comparable to really heavy hitters from a comic book multiverse.
  • The idea that an individual could even get closer to them as a species is a sobering thought to the Xeelee. Yes, they are one of the most advanced beings to ever exist in a hard sci-fi series...but soft sci-fi? Fantasy? There's Always a Bigger Fish. There are some beings like Lord English who are so broken, so absolutely overwhelming in power that even the Xeelee are put on the defensive. Classically, there's also the Anti-Monitor, who seeks to eliminate all matter in creation and leave only his Antimatter Universe left. If he's sufficiently fed he is a force that pressures the Xeelee to ally with his opposite, the Monitor, for the sake of everyone. Darkseid is another threat, though only in his true, Sphere of the Gods form, as he seeks to reshape creation into his image and kill The Evils of Free Will. Worth noting that the Xeelee would've allied with the Monitor regardless of these menaces, as they see themselves as protectors of conventional matter lifeforms in the multiverse.
  • The Xeelee keep their eye on the higher-tier Dragon Ball deities since beings like Beerus are, at least in terms of sheer power, actually in the same ball park, plus even the Xeelee can't just casually delete entire universes like Zeno. However, there's a reason why they can treat someone as terrible as Zamasu as more of an annoyance; when you can manipulate time to the degree of the Xeelee, you basically need to have the same skill set to stand a chance no matter your strength. Add in their bizarre and hyper-advanced technology, and the Xeelee would be an Outside-Genre Foe if they actually attacked the Dragon Ball multiverse. They will at least try to be diplomatic, and there are talks of opening up communication with Whis as he and the angels might be the closest to the type of power set the Xeelee have. However, Whis is quite limited by how he can use that in relation to the hyper-advanced civilization.
  • Lord English is especially notable because of how exceptionally skilled he and his agents are in setting up unbreakable bootstrap paradoxes to ensure his own supremacy...meaning that he can easily play the Xeelee's time game. Also of note that since the Xeelee are on the hard end of sci-fi there are tricks they lack...for now. For example, though they can effortlessly crush any of Giygas' forces and sequester him away they cannot destroy him as that would require prayer and aid from you the player aka Insert Name Here. The idea they're fictional is patently absurd to the Xeelee. Magic is also a concept they have dismissed, which the Multiversal Conqueror Nicol Bolas may have seen as an advantage...but he recognizes their sheer power and understanding of reality makes the Xeelee a major obstacle in his desired conquest of everything. As one of the greatest threats in the multiverse, the Xeelee do recognize him as threat to their sovereignty. Time will tell if he can truly threaten them, yet, especially as there are other forces he considers more important to quash.
  • A couple post-humans have reached their tier of power. One Jon Osterman became the reality-bending Dr Manhattan, who recently proved he could manipulate timelines at least as good as the Xeelee. Dr Manhattan has come to enjoy conversing with a race that is on their level in manipulating and comprehending reality. The other post-human? The Batman That Laugh's final form, the Darkest Night, one he obtained by using the body of a Batman that gained Dr Manhattan's powers but he lobotomized before he could use them...and he is eager to break the hopes and dreams of the Xeelee and dominate existence to turn it into something eternally devouring itself in its own horror. Oh yeah, and he's from the Dark Multiverse...so you can bet the Xeelee are working hard to prevent him from accessing this form.
  • Supportive of Skurd due to his role of seeding new worlds of life. They intend to aid him in this as one of their contingencies in case the conflict in the Trope Pantheon reaches an apocalyptic crescendo. Skurd wonders what might happen if the Contemalia ever met the Xeelee, along with worrying what Brainiac might do with their technology. Vril Dox is unsurprised at his worry since he's positively salivating over how advanced the Xeelee are. His ego prevents him from admitting they outclass him, though, and the Xeelee are advanced enough as to consider all but his absolute strongest incarnation as "some nerd". The Xeelee are not supportive of Enrico Pucci's desire to accelerate time with Made Over Heaven as it will lead to the universe collapsing on itself due to the dark energy constant. That said, the Stand is meant to exploit Eternal Recurrence and not to have the universe outright destroyed, but they are concerned the Photino Birds might try to exploit his Stand.

Intermediate Gods

    Clank 
XJ-0461, God of Awesome Backpacks (Clank, Warbot Defect B5429671; Secret Agent Clank; "Scrappybot", Bolts)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clank_ra.png
  • Intermediate God, bordering on Greater God
  • Symbol: His head
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Adorable robot with a giant form, plays a secret agent on Holo-Vision, fluent in "Nerd" and monkey, son of Orvus and the (former) Senior Caretaker of the Great Clock, adorable laugh
  • Domains: Backpacks, Secret Agents, Time
  • Heralds: The Zoni
  • Allies: Ratchet, Captain Qwark, Aqua, Oerba Dia Vanille, Yuna, Bentley Turtle, Mickey Mouse, Sora, Melody, Jak, Daxter, Lea, Absolnote 
  • Enemies: Dr. Nefarious, Courtney Gears, Gleeman Vox, Lady Tremaine, Clu, Emperor Palpatine
  • Opposes: Funny Valentine, Enrico Pucci
  • Ascended upon Ratchet's request due to their close friendship, and out of envy towards Jak, Sora and Sly being with their friends in the pantheon. In fact, before he ascended, Clank was able to get passed the guards by posing as a backpack, but when he was caught, the gods decided that he more than earned a title and allowed him to stay.
  • Thanks to a recent adventure in which he finds out where he, or rather, his soul came from, Clank has gained the power of "Time". He was suppose to be the Senior Caretaker of the Great Clock, but decided he'd rather resume his adventures with Ratchet.
  • Clank seems to get along with Bentley quite well, probably because they are both intelligent and experts with technology and time. In fact, when Gleeber and Lunk forced them into their Galactic Games, they co-operated in the hopes of being returned to their original worlds.
  • Since Clank's programing allows him to start any ship he chooses, he's often sort out by villains, most noticeably Emperor Palpatine, to gain an advantage on their space battles. Because of this, Ratchet has set up security to insure Clank, as well as everyone else in danger of being captured, is protected.
  • Gets along well with the monkey gods in the pantheon, due to his ability to speak in their "language". He can also speak in Techno Babble (dubbed "nerd" by Ratchet), which is helpful in translating what the more "intelligent" gods (such as Tron) are saying.
  • For some people (including Dr. Nefarious and Courtney Gears), he's best known for playing the titular protagonist in Secret Agent Clank, and is constantly mistaken for said character. Although Clank seems to enjoy the spotlight at first, he begins to regret the show because of this annoying fanbase's constant mistakes, as well as viewing Ratchet (who played a butler named Jeeves until he was fired and replaced with Skrunch) as merely a bumbling sidekick.
  • Once helped Aqua with dealing with Lady Tremaine and her daughters when they and Courtney Gears terrorized Blackwater City and killed it's mayor, and intending to do the same with the Castle of Dreams, while also planning on murdering Cinderella out of hatred. Clank considers the Tremaine family to be "witches", but oddly, has not caught up on the Disney deities, the Kids Next Door, or Daxter calling Gears a "glitch".
  • Despite being good friends with Jak and Daxter normally, this didn't stop him from kicking a RYNO V into their face and unfreezing Rachet during a DEATH BATTLE! they had once. To be fair, he did feel bad about it later, given "Battle Royale: Round 2" hints that contestants are brainwashed during these battles.
  • After the ascension of Melody, the daughter of Ariel, Clank has began to investigate on a rumor that her arch nemesis, Morgana, might have been a disguised Ursula all along. But the existence of Uma caught Clank by surprise, as there is no way that Ursula could justify the existence of Uma if Morgana is Ursula.
    Clank: First, they say she has a sister. Now they say she has a daughter? Guess they'll next explain that Morgana and Uma are just illusions of her own leaking imagination. Hehehehehe.
    • However, Clank is also looking at the possibility of some timelines being altered to create a Bad Future or a nonsensical one for various Disney characters, because Ariel mentions a timeline where Morgana never existed, which allowed Melody to grow up fully aware of her mermaid heritage. She hopes that one would one day become the canon timeline.

    The Laughing Man 
The Laughing Man, God of Techno Wizards (Aoi)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6dd561303020cca09994a99d5b7bc94e.png
Aoi 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Laughing Man Logo
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Techno Wizard, Covering his Face with a Logo Whenever Possible, Obfuscating Disability, Well-Intentioned Extremist, Memetic Mutation (in-universe and out)
  • Domains: Technology, Knowledge, Identity
  • Allies: Lain, Aiden Pearce, Neo, Barbara Gordon
  • Enemies: Dr. Hax, Agent Smith, SHODAN, Samaritan
  • Observed by: The House of Law and Justice, Akane Tsunemori
  • Additional Relations: Motoko Kusanagi
  • Arguably, the Laughing Man is one of the most enigmatic hackers out there. His actions in a futuristic Japan have been a hot topic of that time period, leading Public Security Section 9 to investigate what exactly it is that he wants.
    • The Laughing Man is actually an alias that was originated by a young man named Aoi (in turn, the alias came from a short story by J. D. Salinger) and him discovering a file by chance would be the catalyst for Section 9's adventure due to that alias being used by different people. When it comes to that alias being used in the Pantheon, Aoi isn't sure what to make of it.
  • Not only does the Pantheon presumably contain items that Aoi was able to hack back in his world, it is also housing a number of technological items that could be considered new to him. These new materials have been of interest for him at the moment.
  • Only a handful of people know the identity of the originator, but almost everyone else doesn't see him often. He would prefer to read books, making him a frequent guest at the Library. Still, his temple is quite impressive, consisting of several data servers and a dozen hacked Gibson supercomputers...which he did himself.
  • Even though he is able to hack into computers and related technological items quite effectively, there are some who believe that it is very unrealistic and that number of other people that are following him are doing that. That rumor was debunked just as quickly as it started.
  • The Laughing Man has been known to make visits to online chatrooms on rare occasions. Sometimes, if Motoko Kusanagi is there, they may have share a quick chat with each other as the two are on reasonable terms with each other.
  • He has a level of admiration towards Barbara Gordon's hacking skills. Both of them actually had disabilities involved in some capacity, but whereas Barbara was able to get over her disability, Aoi was simply faking being disabled. Barbara wasn't sure what to make of that despite taking a liking to his hacking abilities.
  • One of his greatest obstacles has been Dr. Hax, a being who is notorious for cracking down on hackers and cheaters. In turn, Dr. Hax hates just how quickly The Laughing Man is able to get through technology to find whatever it is that he is looking for currently. It's not uncommon for the two to get engaged in cyber-combat if they cross paths online.
  • Despite his actions being at least somewhat justified to an extent, the House of Justice still doesn't trust him entirely and they, alongside a number of other investigators and officers, have been keeping track of his actions should anything suspicious come from him again, with the more law-inclined enforcers more willing to go after him sooner than later.
  • Spike Spiegel was once mistaken to have been the real identity of The Laughing Man, due to a couple of reasons. That ended up getting debunked when Spike told the curious party that he had nothing do with anything that hacker. Spike did concede that the Laughing Man is what would happen if Radical Ed ended up getting too much time on his hands.
    • Speaking of which, Radical Ed did mistake Aoi for Spiegel due to the voices at one point. Aoi only showed confusion towards Ed in regards to that, as well as the aforementioned incident regarding Spiegel.
  • The GUAG White Hats once asked him to join their group given his technological skills. Although he declined the offer, he is still quite friendly towards that group.
    • One particular hacker that The Laughing Man gets along with is Aiden Pearce, since the two have a similar level of skill when it comes to hacking technological items for their use. They are also considered criminals in a sense, despite not being truly malicious.
  • It should be noted that The Laughing Man "meme" that happened initially was a result of Aoi's actions being viewed in a good light. This can be considered both a "realistic" meme in the sense that others were trying to replicate him and an "internet" meme in the sense of the logo being used. Monsoon is kind of amused by it.
  • Aoi most likely didn't want to consider himself a terrorist even though The Laughing Man imitators that he spawned could be considered such. He doesn't like a lot of the terrorists in the Pantheon, especially since their actions are likely more extreme than what his imitators have performed.
  • I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes. ... Or should I?note 

Lesser Gods

    Abra Kadabra 
Abra Kadabra, God of Technology That Seems Like Magic (Citizen Abra, Dr Petrou, Phillipé, full name: Abhararakadhararbarakh)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/7d612b8d2214c0a5e85a75de6d60cb400f322a5b_hq.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His futuristic wand
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Magic from Technology, Puppet Permutation, Due To Being From The Future, Hates The 64th Century, Loves The 21st, Stage Magician, Black Sheep of the Rouges, Wants To Be The Center Of Attention Because He Could Never Stand Out In His Repressive Era, Time Travel, Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?
  • Domains: "Magic", Advanced Technology, Time Travel, Narcissism, Showmanship
  • Allies: Leonard Snart (sort of), Syndrome, Balthazar Bratt
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Lord Tirek, Kang the Conqueror
  • Enemies: Barry Allen and the other Flashes, the Teen Titans, Zatanna Zatara, Trixie, the Doctor, Kokonoe Mercury, Yuki Nagato, Felix the Cat, Linkara, Princess Bubblegum, Chronoa, Voldemort, Harry Potter, He Who Remains, the Grand United Alliance of Law
  • Opposes: All actual magicians, due to his ego
  • Pities: Argus Filch
  • No relation: Alakazam
  • Abra Kadabra, real name Abhararakadhararbarakh, hails from the far off era of the 64th century. The age was repressive, dull and advanced technology made stage magicians a thing of the past. Because of this, he decided to go back to the 20th/21st century where his technology would be near-indistinguishable from magic. However his narcissism and abuse of "magical" talent got him in trouble with the Flash. Ever since then, he has served as one of the Rouges.
  • While he works with Captain Cold as a member of the Rouges, he's the Black Sheep of them since he doesn't work for money and tries to kill cops and speedsters. Doesn't spend much time with them, but they'll feed his ego if need be. One of his most memorable trick is the time he turned the Flash into a living marionette. The Other Mother is bemused by this trick and wants it, which Abra Kadabra rebuked with "you know a magician never reveals his secrets".
  • His enormous ego makes it difficult to find allies, but there were a couple who's egotism and desire to be noticed could work for his cause-Syndrome and Balthazar Bratt. The latter, he could understand what it was like for society to outgrow his interests and desire to be noticed. The former, his vendetta towards superheroes and ability to match them with advanced technology reminds Citizen Abra of himself. Bratt helps provide proper music whenever he's doing his criminal magic acts.
  • Hates his home era, preferring the age of superheroes instead. However there are some gods that don't appreciate his mucking around with history, such as Chronoa due to when he removed Wally West from history. The Doctor ended up encountering him and stopped his schemes, however from personal experience he completely understands why Abra Kadabra fled his repressive era and isn't going to begrudge him for that.
  • Insists that he is a magician, and deserves to be in the House of Magic and Sorcery. While his technology can get really similar to the magic used there, it isn't true magic and this can be determined at a close glance. All genuine magicians hurt his ego, so he doesn't like the house. He is interested in Lord Tirek due to being able to absorb magic and since he's not truly magical he's not someone to be drained, and hopes to get back at the house. Though even someone as egotistical as him treads lightly around Tirek.
  • Princess Bubblegum correctly assessed that his magic was actually technology, and has a general belief that all magic is just mis-understood science. This got him pretty pissed off and caused trouble to "prove" that he was a great magicians. He dislikes Linkara because he is able to use actual magic and technology together as toys, and his jealousy of this combined with reviewing comics like the ones he is from led him to an Irrational Hatred that Linkara's reviews will expose the secrets of his craft.
  • He wanted Magitek or Magic from Technology, but they were already taken. As such he opposes the holders of these tropes out of jealousy and spite, and wanting to one-up them. He dislikes Felix the Cat for having better tricks than him. Voldemort despises Abra Kadabra as he is a muggle who uses technology to seem like he has magic. It comes off as an insult to his ego and to magic in his twisted world view, due to believing muggles are inherently inferior and muggle technology advanced enough to come off like magic is difficult for his bigoted mind to grasp.
  • Though a narcissist, there is one god he feels sorry for-Argus Filch. As a Squib, Filch grew up in a magical society but couldn't use magic and grew bitter because of this. In a rare moment of kindness he gave him some 64th century tech to mimic the Functional Magic of Harry Potter. That, and he wanted to see him troll Hogwarts for his amusement.
  • Once sold his soul so he had actual magic, but retcons have undone this. He's not going to try making a deal with the likes of the Incubators since he doesn't want to risk it being botched again. Recently he was involved in removing Wally West from history, and almost succeeded at eliminating him. The House of Time and Temporality is keeping a closer eye on him for this.
  • Despite the name, he has zero connection to Alakazam. He does find the Pokemon's psychic abilities intriguing, however. Some of the more benevolent gods in the Houses of Magic and Sorcery and Machinery and Technology want him to change his ways, if only due to the technology he uses being beneficial in the present. Unfortunately he doesn't care about making money, just showing off.
  • Despises the GUAL from the bottom of his heart. He's a firm individualist in a society which heavily discourages free will. He believes that their existence is the reason the 64th century is the way it is.
  • Has a hard time working with Kang the Conqueror as while Abra does sympathize with the need to go back to the past to do whatever they want he doesn't much can for conquering the past or controlling people. He'd rather cause chaos while Kang wishes to create order.
    • This doesn't extend to one of Kang's deviants "He Who Remains" as he hates how far that version would go to control people.

  • Susie is the secretary of Haltmann, president of the Haltmann Works Company seeking to mechanize Planet Popstar for the sake of profit. Throughout the mechanization, Susie fights against Kirby, siccing the company's most dangerous machines on him. She eventually betrays Haltmann himself and steals the controller for Star Dream itself, intending to sell it for profit and teach Haltmann a "thing or two" (or in the Japanese version, "wake him up"), only for it backfire when the machine absorbs Haltmann's mind, deletes it, and plans to destroy all organic life since it sees no profit in it. Susie helps Kirby put a stop a stop to Star Dream, and although it remains ambiguous if she has reformed (Either still intending to mechanize planets or trying to bring happiness with science), she is still on good terms with Kirby as a friend or foe.
  • It's revealed later that Susie is actually Haltmann's daughter, who disappeared into Another Dimension. Haltmann attempted to use Star Dream to get her back, but the machine wiped out his memories in the process. Haltmann no longer recognized Susie by the time they met again, only hiring her as a secretary based on what little fondness he had for her. This in hindsight seems to explain Susie's motives for turning against Haltmann, likely wanting him to remember her as his daughter. Countless deities, especially those who lost a father (such as Simba, Harry, etc), felt incredible sympathy for her, and admitted that they would have tried to help Susie reunite with her father properly.
  • One day Susie came into the Pantheon, and since she had nowhere else to go, decided to make herself a new home for the time being until she's ready to start business again. She also has a friendly reunion with a surprised Kirby, who wasn't expecting her to make her arrival, and after the Court of the Gods reviewed her case, decided make her the Goddess of Technologically Advanced Foes. Susie is quite proud of her title and position, and hopes to use it to her advantage.
    • While Susie normally acts as an enemy against Kirby, there is no malice in it at all. She acts seems to like and respect Kirby as a foe, and will even team up with him against a dangerous opponent, as was the case with Star Dream and Void Termina.
    • Meta Knight on the other hand, outright dreads Susie, since she robotized him and used him as a unwilling soldier. While he doesn't show it, Susie serves as a living Trauma Button for him. The few times they do work together are Teeth-Clenched Teamwork on his part, since he can't really forget what she put him through.
    • If there is one god she hates the most, it would be Star Dream. That thing is the reason her father no longer recognizes her, and it took him away from her forever. Though she doesn't show it, she hates seeing Star Dream in the Pantheon to the point she will work alongside her enemies to stop it without question.
  • Lucas and the Masked Man aren't thrilled by Susie's actions, considering how Porky had invaded and mechanized their home for no good reason. Susie doesn't let it get to her though. When they do have to work together, the brothers are wary of her.
    • That said, Susie doesn't like Porky at all. She may be willing to mechanize planets, but she at least has a reason for it (even if people aren't willing to accept it as business). Porky is just an immature boy in an old man's body doing whatever he wants.
    • Susie is completely at odds with the Null Sector ever since they invaded one of her father's temples to mass produce killer robots. She had experience with rebellious machines once, and she'll put a stop to them before they get out of control.
  • Susie met the Corpus once and came to form a business deal with them, exchanging resources to benefit each other. This ends up earning her the ire of the Tenno, becoming their enemy as well. Susie, on the other hand, is thinking of a way she can get her hands on the Tenno's biomechanical armor for the sake of reverse-engineering it.
  • SilvaGunner sometimes use her company and father in their music/memes. Susie feels honored to have her theme song sung and represented by someone so famous, while SilvaGunner is pleased to sing a remix of the song to everyone.
  • The Neuroi are mechanical aliens who invaded WWII-era Earth, feeding off the Earth's minerals and took over most of Europe. Despite this, it's clear they're incapable of being allies of Susie, since she is still an organic lifeform and it isn't clear if the Neuroi can be reasoned with. All the same, Susie is interested in capturing one to dissect and experiment on.
  • All of the gods bearing the title of Mega Man, as well as their allies, have a rather complicated relationship with Susie. While she is amicable with them and sincerely offering them a chance to work for her due to her interests in the Robot Masters and their successors, none of them are really comfortable with Susie at all due to worrying she might try to brainwash them. Even the Blue Bomber himself, nice as he is, still cannot bring himself to trust her fully.
  • Phineas & Ferb do have a good relationship with Susie since she respects their skills and the two are nice people, but they wish that Susie could put her talents to a more ethical use. Susie also notes that the brothers shouldn't waste technology on needlessly complex plans, when they could put their skills to a more meaningful use.
  • Mei Natsume and Susie actually strike a kinship with each other, with Mei hoping to present some of her babies to her company. Susie is just as enthusiastic, but does note that Mei needs to focus on working on more practical devices before she can think of a position for her in her company.
  • Susie and Magalor had crossed paths once during Kirby's battle with the Cult of Jamba Heart. While they don't become enemies because of it, they do form a rivalry because of their current relationship with Kirby (Magalor being genuinely reformed while Susie is more of a Friendly Enemy). Regardless, the two do hang out in their spare time to talk about hobbies and plans for the future, with Magalor either challenging Susie to some friendly competition or trying to help her change for the better.
    • Susie also met Isabelle, who is a secretary like her. Isabelle is friendly and polite with Susie, usually inviting her out for some tea and ice cream, even if she doesn't approve of the way of her actions. Isabelle is also sympathetic towards Susie for losing her father. Susie, while a bit dumbfounded by her clumsiness, still appreciates Isabelle's kindness.
  • Susie outright dislikes Dawn Bellwether despite being a secretary like her. Susie finds Bellwether's goal and sadism downright disturbing, even for her. The dislike is mutual on Bellwether's end, who even goes so far as to call Susie a hypocrite because she looked down on other beings she deemed inferior, which she sees as no different from her prejudice towards predators. Susie points out that she can learn to co-exist with people, and she doesn't believe in pointless cruelty unlike Bellwether, who wanted to watch Nick tear apart Judy.
