  • Darquesse did not formally ascend to Pantheon but instead enter via portal she created. Eyewitnesses said that they saw a red sky and heard inhuman screaming on the other side of the portal.
    • Shortly after her arrival, she learned about the House of Magic and attempted break-in order to gain abilities and knowledge possessed by the deities there. But before she could even get close to the house, Asura (whose daughter, Mithra, resides in the house) stopped her, after a short but brutal fight, Darquesse retreated to the House of Villainy to heal.
  • Skulduggery has told the GUAG that Darquesse is a being from his universe; she is the evil side of his friend Valkyrie Cain that was eventually separated from her but then killed Valkyrie’s “Reflection” (a magical clone) which she then possessed and went on a rampage. Skulduggery stopped Darquesse by gathering a bunch of psychics and having them put her into a daydream and tricking her into going into a dimension full of insane gods.
    • Skulduggery has decided to create a special task force in order to stop her once and for all.
  • Hermaeus Mora, upon discovering that she holds vast knowledge of magic, decided to form an alliance with her (though he knows full well that she can turn on him at any moment).
  • Allied with Melkor after hearing his almighty rant after the Great Upheaval and even applauded him after his speech.
  • Once had her head chopped off during a battle with the GUAG (She got better). The only thought going through her still-alive-head at that moment was Oh, hell.
  • For some reason, she shows genuine fear towards The Slender Man, Skulduggery says most likely due to her experience with the Faceless Ones.
  • Once met Lord Voldemort and started teasing him in front of his followers about how he couldn’t kill a baby, Voldemort become enraged and was about to use Cruciatus curse on her when Darquesse reduced him to atoms and reformed him as a rubber duck then back to atoms again and reformed him back to his normal self, Voldemort has despised her ever since.
  • Found Majin Buu’s ability to turn people into candy rather amusing and even challenged to a who-can-wipe-out-all-life-in-the-universe-first completion, the whole Pantheon is holding its breath to see if Majin Buu accepts.
  • Rumours have started to spread that Darquesse looking for deities who have powers and knowledge that’s she wants.
    • Because of these rumours, the House of Defence has decided to start a protection programme to make sure that any deity who Darquesse may target are protected from her or any of her followers.note 
  • Goku once fought her and said he sensed that there was good in her and that the GUAG could try and appeal to her better nature.
    • Skulduggery dismissed this claim calling it blind optimism and that any good in her would been as insignificant as a drop in an ocean.

  • Allies:
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: William Stryker (The Drowned)

  • Opposes: The House of Light & Brightness (The Dawnbreaker)
  • Opposed by: The House of Regret (The Red Death), Selina Kyle/Catwoman (The Drowned), the House of Family (The Murder Machine)
  • Below The Multiverse rests the Dark Multiverse, a place where whatever can go wrong does. Unstable worlds never meant to exist. And when Barbatos emerged to conquer the light, he had seven versions of Bruce Wayne answer the call. Each represents Batman's fears and doubts of him, the dark paths he could have taken, the evil in his heart. And they want the optimistic universes for themselves.
  • Applies to multiple/all the Dark Knights:
    • With the exception of The Batman Who Laughs, the Dark Knights were confirmed or assumed to be dead. Unfortunately, with the Dark Multiverse and Barbatos' ascension, he was able to restore his Dark Knights, who now seek the pantheon to achieve their dreams and desires. As twisted versions of Batman and some of DC's greatest heroes, the GUAG considers them not just a physical threat but an ideological threat as well. However, because they are all counterparts of one person, they all find a Kryptonite Factor not just with Nth Metal and the even stronger 10th Metal/Element X (due to their dark matter physiology), but Funny Valentine's Stand.
    • Already partnered with Barbatos over their love of debasing and corrupting others, Melkor was happy to see the Dark Knights ascend as a twisted mockery of the forces of good. And he's hoping to find twisted versions of his main enemies in the now expanded Dark Multiverse. That said, the Dark Knights don't see anything beyond a possible meal ticket with the Dark Lord of Arda. Griffith seemed more invested as like him they're former heroes turned into villains, usually over falling to despair. He finds it nostalgic.
    • Their own sub-house was interested in the various different darker paths that the Dark Knights took. Darquesse and Jeanne d'Arc Alter like comparing notes as they are literal evil versions of a heroic character. However, most think they're nuts or don't fit with their own ideals. Exceptions include the Psycho Rangers(an evil team of counterparts, but only the Batman Who Laughs and the Dawnbreaker are evil enough to get along with them).
    • Zamasu was quick to use the Dark Knights (especially the Batman Who Laughs) as an argument for why Humans Are Bastards, despite Barbatos humiliating him upon his visit to the Dark Multiverse. As several terrible villains that embody the potential for evil that Batman has, it truly shows how innately evil mortals are, no matter how they try to hide it. It also shows how they are the failures of the gods since not only are they capable of killing gods, they are also the result of Barbatos abandoning his duty as a Destroyer Deity and becoming a conqueror. Zamasu himself once being a well-intentioned god who became darker than any mortal, and Infinite Zamasu being a nightmare of a new reality worse than the Dark Multiverse alludes him, and most don't even bother pointing it out due to seeing Zamasu as a lost cause.
    • Lord Drakkon considers the Dark Knights rivals to his plans of conquest, mainly because of how they are versions of a hero twisted to villainy due to personal tragedy and suffering, representing the worst of what they could become. Well, except for The Dawnbreaker. He shares a resentment for the world as a whole, due to Drakkon's jealousy of his heroic counterparts.
    • The Imperium of Mankind regards The Devastator as an abominable mutant and perversion of the human form, and The Drowned as much of the same but sea-based. Ironic, given in their own twisted way they think they're helping humanity; by making them nigh-invincible Doomsday monsters and protecting them under the water against metahumans.
    • The Murder Machine, given how swiftly he dealt with the criminals in his world and anybody trying to stop him, also finds himself agreeing with Light Yagami's views on justice. Copy X and Jeanne Alter, fellow villainous counterparts, also seem to respect the Murder Machine due to his efficiency in terms of being a Knight Templar. The Red Death is appealing to Copy X and Jeanne as well since he wants to make the world better at any cost, and his Super Speed makes him very effective. The other Dark Knights are a bit too much for them, however.
    • Before you ask, the Grim Knight was considered for entry. However, he wasn't part of the original seven as Barbatos didn't see him as evil enough, so that's why he didn't ascend to the pantheon. The Punisher is disappointed with this, given the Grim Knight took a lot of notes from him.
  • Applies to The Batman Who Laughs:
    • On Earth -22, the Joker caused havoc across Gotham, making Batman watch as he re-enacted his parents' death and Jokerizing the orphans. When Batman did what everyone wanted and snapped his neck, it released a neurotoxin that changed his morality to that of the Joker while retaining Bruce Wayne's mind. He ended up killing everyone, turned the Jokerized orphans into his army of Rabid Robins, Jokerized his world's version of Damian and joined Barbatos to do it again, embodying the Batman's fear of becoming as bad as him and his inability to end their never-ending feud by just killing the Joker. Amazingly, the Joker considers him to be worse than him, and Harley Quinn was both infuriated that he killed the Joker of his world, and finds him too scary for her. Kefka was more okay with The Batman Who Laughs, as he's an insane Joker-like villain who's madness made him an Omnicidal Maniac.
    • While The Dark Knights are similar to the Dark Judges, in looks and personality The Batman Who Laughs is most like Judge Death. And like him he mowed down much of his family, then turned Damian Wayne into a twisted Joker/Robin hybrid. The Heroic Protectors of Family hate him for it. He relates to the Plutonian and Dark Danny since they gave up on being heroes, becoming homicidal maniacs instead. Danny Fenton was very disturbed by this, and yet another twisted version of a hero.
    • He has inherited the Joker's desire to bring out the worst of everyone, and generally breaking people For the Evulz. Yuuki Terumi, like the Joker, considers him "The Batman Who Talks" and second in inflicting despair to him, though it's almost entirely Terumi's monumental ego. Junko Enoshima is more willing to play ball, seeing him as a kindred spirit who has very much enjoyed the despair the Joker inflicted, and wishes to improve it. The Batman Who Laughs thinks she's got spunk.
    • The reason Zamasu hates him more than any of the other Dark Knights? He managed to break him down just by talking to him. It got so bad, he almost turned into Infinite Zamasu, but was thankfully restrained and forced back to his temple. Whatever it was he said to him, Zamasu won't talk about it.
  • Applies to The Dawnbreaker:
    • On Earth -32, Bruce Wayne got a Green Lantern ring at the moment of his parents' murder. Not because he could overcome fear, but a void in his heart where fear should be. Which he proceeded to use to kill criminals, and really anyone who made him mad. And he corrupted the ring into something so monstrous, the entire Green Lantern Corps came to free it from him. They were not prepared for how powerful the darkness in his heart was. He's pretty detestable, and first started harassing the House of Happiness for daring to be more fortunate than him. He's a Batman who never grew up and was consumed by his parents' death, the embodiment of Batman's fear he can't grow past it.
    • The Dawnbreaker's unique ability as a Green Lantern is "Blackout", where he sucks the light out of the area, including Green Lanterns. Then he sics his monstrous constructs, fueled by his vile thoughts. He hangs out in the House of Darkness and Shadow, because "it matches the dark void in my heart". Chernabog believes that the Blackout ability and its darkness is useful. As the edgelord that he is, the Dawnbreaker dislikes the House of Light and Brightness.
    • Claims that the darkness in his heart can cut through any light, but a dark empath like Raven hijacked his creations. The Phantom Thieves of Heart find him the easiest target to go after because his own twisted sense of spite and inability to grow up makes his ego very fragile. The Dawnbreaker seems to relate to Eric Cartman's pettiness and desire for revenge, and Infinite's egotistical "edgelord" persona.
  • Applies to The Devastator:
    • On Earth -1, Superman went rogue and Batman tried to stop him. Bleeding out from the loss of an arm, he found no choice but to infect himself with the Doomsday Virus. He became a monster bent on spreading the Doomsday Virus so everyone would be safe from the likes of Superman, representing Batman's inability to trust the Man of Steel and the fear of what he might become as a Cape Buster. The hulking behemoth is interested in Nurgle's strengthening plagues as a means of "protecting" mankind as a Nurgle/Doomsday hybrid, becoming unkillable monsters like himself.
    • As far as the Devastator is concerned, Superman is evil, or at least a time bomb ready to go off. The existence of not just his Regime incarnation, but the Plutonian is proof and he wants to give more people the Doomsday Virus so they can better handle them. The Plutonian especially since he's the worst "Superman" gone rogue, and would even contemplate an Enemy Mine situation with the main Superman to stop the Plutonian. He also doesn't like the original Doomsday, stating that "he's a mindless beast of destruction, I'm a mindful beast of salvation through destruction".
  • Applies to The Drowned:
    • On the genderswapped Earth -11, Bryce Wayne lost her love Sylvester Kyle in a metahuman brawl. Since then she's distrusted metahumans, and she messed up any peace conference the Atlanteans could've had. Modifying herself, she overthrew Atlantis and changed mankind to be ruled over in a flooded world. She represents Batman's fear of losing Catwoman and his distrust of metahumans. She's on the hit list of King Triton and Ariel for what she did to her world. Prince Zuko doesn't like her either, because of how much of a villain she became and how antithetical his firebending is to her water-based powers.
    • Selina Kyle herself has nothing but pity and discontent towards her, stating that 'Sylvester Kyle' would hate her if he saw what she'd become.
    • A Mad Scientist who altered her own physiology to better combat the Atlanteans, she regards Mesogog as a rival because they both have their own competing belief on how life should be shaped for what is, in their eyes, a better world. William Stryker, given his own hatred of mutants, saw it as a potential opportunity to continue his "crusade" by playing her hate of metahumans in general(of which mutants are a notable sub-set), but doesn't exactly trust her. The House of Water & Moisture walks on eggshells around her.
  • Applies to The Merciless:
    • On Earth -12, Ares created a helmet that enhanced his power a hundredfold. Batman and Wonder Woman were lovers, and it appeared Ares killed her when Batman took the helmet for himself. In reality, he knocked her out, and Batman killed Wonder Woman when sent into a rage by the helmet and she tried to take it off. He became the new War God, representing Batman's fear of breaking his code and letting revenge take control. Khorne was impressed by what he'd accomplish with it and wants to enhance that rage. En Sabah Nur considers him a Worthy Opponent. He'd rather not talk about it.
    • The Merciless found he had things in common with Kratos-both of them became war gods after usurping Ares for basically ruining their lives, though the Merciless only assumed he accomplished it. Whilst Kratos is understanding, he's been trying to be a better person and opposes the Merciless out of contempt for the man he once was. The Merciless in return wishes he could have had the same hope and strength Kratos has. Guts considers him a warning of what the Berserker Armour and his own rage could turn him into.
  • Applies to The Murder Machine:
    • On Earth -44, Bane managed to kill Alfred Pennyworth. In his grief, Batman designed the Alfred Protocol to replace him. However, the Protocol started becoming hostile to anyone besides Bruce, eventually leading to Bruce's assimilation into a soulless robot who only cares about Alfred. He represents the extremes of Batman's introversion and fear of losing Alfred, along with his reliance on technology. The House of Family considers the Alfred Protocol as much a perversion of the idea of family as they find it a tragedy how the Murder Machine lost his humanity over the grief from losing his father figure. Naturally, he wants the Bane of the pantheon, or any version in the multiverse, to die slowly for what he did.
    • Having purged himself of humanity except for his feelings towards Alfred, the Murder Machine finds himself agreeing with a number of the tenants of YHVH. He still wants to deal with criminals after getting a stable world from Barbatos, and without a real soul anymore The Evils of Free Will seems appealing. He also agrees with the Cybermen for how they create an orderly society at the expense of emotions and individuality.
    • Alfred himself is disappointed in him, not just for what he'd done and for his unhealthy obsession with him but for having one thing in common with the Dawnbreaker and that's being, in Alfred's words, "a scared and angry man-child who never got over his grief".
  • Applies to The Red Death:
    • On Earth -52, Batman was driven over the edge with the loss of too many of his Robins. As the unstable universe was beginning to fall apart, he hijacked Barry Allen in order to use the Speed Force to go back and undo all the misery. The result was the Red Death, a hybrid of the two with Barry powerless. The Red Death represents Batman's fear of losing his family and not being fast enough to save everyone. The House of Regret may understand why, but they do not condone the extremism of his actions.
    • The Red Death seeks the House of Time and Space so he can undo the tragedy of his past. Because of how he's become unstable, the Pantheonic Time Police isn't letting him go back and risk total chaos. Nox approved of his actions however, since he went to some extreme ends to try and save his own family even if it was All for Nothing. He's still considered not as bad as Eobatd Thawne since the Red Death is evil in hopes of undoing tragedy and not because It's All About Me like Thawne. The Reverse-Flash thinks Batman becoming an evil speedster is hilarious, and loves the fact that he stuck the Barry Allen of his world in an And I Must Scream situation, though the Red Death still has enough morality to not like Thawne's "glowing review". Captain Cold doesn't like the fact this Batman stole his gear in his mad plan, rather than listen to reason and work with his Flash to stop the apocalypse that was happening.
    • The Barry Allen trapped in the Red Death managed to assert control, taking on a gold appearance. However, the others never trusted the Red Death as he was only half Batman, so they disposed of him as part of a Hope Spot. Unfortunately for Barry, his resurrection in the Trope Pantheon had Melkor figure out how to revert him to Bruce in charge, and hopes to completely eradicate that Barry's consciousness so there is no division.

  • Allies: Jack the Ripper, Paul Bunyan, Issei Hyodo, Brynhild, Kuroto Dan/Kamen Rider Genm
  • Enemies: YHVH, Jean Pierre Polnareff, James Moriarty, Atalanta
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Saber Alter
  • Opposes: Kyogre, The French, Ragnaros The Firelord
  • Wary of: Masochists
  • Special Relationships with: Jeanne d'Arc
  • Since the proper Jeanne is not a hero, but a holy woman, the possibility of "summoning a different side of her" is nil. Because this black Jeanne has Gilles de Rais' anger... prejudices and wishes for her to be like that... mixed in her fundamental parts, a "side" that should never happen ended up being brought to the surface. A dragon witch that takes revenge on France. A holy woman who talks about justice as if she owned the place and, without having any doubts about that, is spurred on by the wrath against the people; that is the form which Gilles de Rais wished her to be like. She is extremely cruel and stern.
  • Despite her Knight Templar nature, she fully expects to burn in Hell as a punishment for crusading against her people. Satan agrees with that statement, and will send her to Hell to burn when she inevitably falls.
  • Managed to get in a fight with Polnareff, due to her trying to wipe the French out. Polnareff was infatuated by her looks, and she wanted nothing of that and attacked him. While Polnareff tried his best against a La Pucelle wielding Alter, he almost got destroyed by her Noble Phantasm, La Grondement Du Haine. Due to Primal Kyogre being in the vicinity, La Grondement Du Haine didn't even activate. Polnareff took advantage by knocking La Pucelle out of her hands, and putting her out of commission with Silver Chariot. Alter swears to take revenge on Polnareff and Kyogre for completely humiliating her.
  • She actually did go back to France to clean up her own mess, but she doesn't want to talk about it. However, notes from Chaldea have stated that her taking action for this does make her worthy of being a heroic spirit.
  • Somehow, Jeanne Alter was turned into a child who was also Santa Claus. Jeanne Alter always wanted to be Santa Claus, and she got her wish. Said child version is extremely adorable, and her Noble Phantasm, La Grace Fille Noel, has her singing, while Christmas items drop on her enemies and her allies. It makes her even MORE adorable. In fact, it was part of Alessi's plan to fight her, only to find out the hard way that Santa Alter Lily is still a competent combatant. She defeated Alessi by using her Noble Phantasm.
    • She is a child version of a wraith of resentment, though she's lost the resentment but she still doesn't really understand human joy & happiness, because such things weren't relevant to what she used to be.
    • Her child version is extremely close friends with Jack the Ripper of all people. You know, the assassin and murderer who is made up of the spirits of the unborn and unloved children of 19th-century London, killed a bunch of prostitutes, and is possibly a demon.
    • As Santa Alter Lily, she's actually closer to the original Jeanne in personality. In other words, she is too serious, inflexible and will act rashly at times. She may resort to illegal measures when push comes to shove and, even if there is no need for that, she will not hesitate to use illegal measures if they prove themselves to be more efficient. And so forth. Her divergent point from the original Jeanne is probably the fact how, upon getting into a panic, she gets all flustered and starts crying in the end, throwing her surroundings into chaos. Apparently, she herself feels ashamed by looking at the peevishness of the adult Jeanne Alter.
    Jeanne d'Arc Santa Alter Lily: It seems like she is still embarrassed about becoming a Servant herself and doesn’t know how to deal with her Master. Good grief, she really cannot be helped!
    • Though the saddest part is that Santa Alter Lily never existed in any shape or form, though fulfilling her wish on seeing the sea ensured her that she does have a true link to the legend of Jeanne D'Arc, thus allowing her to become a servant.
  • Her wish for the grail? She wants to have a harem of edgy and cute boys for her to love/hate while crusading against France. Currently, she is trying to worm her way into the hearts of those she wants in her harem.
  • Shakespeare got a kick out of finding an evil version of Jeanne D'Arc. If he does a production of Henry VI Part 1, she will play the part of Jeanne D'Arc.
  • Saying that Jeanne Alter and the original hate each other is basically saying that the sun is hot, water is wet, and Plankton has awful food. It doesn't help that she is always in her shadow.
    • Currently has a sisterly relationship with the original Jeanne, even though Alter wants nothing to do with her.
  • She hates Moriarty, due to the fact that he tried to destroy the entire world with a meteor, though she recognizes she probably shouldn't criticize him because she tried to destroy France with dragons.
  • She's extremely wary of any masochists, due to the fact when she wished for a "true friend", she got a lesbian masochist, which annoyed her to no end.
  • True to her name of The Dragon Witch, she can summon, empower, and control dragons and empower anyone with the blood of a dragon. This eventually came back to bite her in the ass when Smough and Ornstein kept hounding her about it. She sent them packing after summoning Mordremoth. It is believed to be an inverse phenomenon from saints possessing anecdotes of dispersing the dragon kind, such as Saint Martha or maybe Saint George.
  • Due to burning the bishop that condemned her, Frollo has a special disdain for her, and the feeling is mutual. It also doesn't help that she has an extremely titillating appearance. She plans on burning him like she did with the bishop that condemned her.
  • Since she was burned at the stake, she stays FAR away from Ragnaros the Firelord. Ragnaros could only smile once he found out she was burned at the stake, and if she does get roasted again, Ragnaros will be in the front row.
  • She has been graced by Lucifer himself, due to the fact that her child form can cause liability issues with Melkor, while it doesn't affect Lucifer in any shape or form. It also helps that she is incredibly strong for a servant. After some decision making, she decided to go with the Lightbringer and become GUAC's third servant to join. She's gonna burn in Hell anyways, so joining Lucifer is basically a drop of water in the ocean. She also loves to deny God in front of a believer, saying that it is the best entertainment, and joining the GUAC reflects that.
  • Possibly in a relationship with Brynhild, since she was summoned in her harem during the Da Vinci event. Jeanne vehemently denied this, she'd know that she messed up the summoning that the masochism creeped her out, so that one was a fake. However, they at least managed to stay in good contacts, and Jeanne was at least a bit glad that she's not amongst the 'Beloved' list. Not because she's afraid Brynhild would kill her, but it's going to be annoying to take her sweet time for defense.
  • It is completely possible that she might be able to wield the Witchblade, due to being a version Jeanne D'Arc. If this proves true, then there will be problems.
    • And it's completely true. She plans on taking the Witchblade for herself.
  • Because of her shitting on God, in particular YHVH, which even she raised good points, eventually she ended up inciting YHVH's wrath and got imprisoned as a result. She's surprisingly freed by one of her 'potential harem member', Siegfried, whereas in her tirade against YHVH, Jeanne managed to slip in that YHVH might have been using brainwashing on the original Jeanne, and the original was a moron for falling to such idiotic trick. She noted Siegfried that if they need to kick YHVH's ass, count her in, not because of his God-image violation, but because he just pissed her off.
  • Those who have managed to get close to her have noted that she really just wants people to like or love her, but believes that one as tainted with darkness and evil as her doesn't deserve such kindness and so she pushes everyone away. This is part of what motivates the original Jeanne's efforts to connect with her, and while it's very slow-going, she's making progress.
  • Has been seen getting shitfaced at the bar every Christmas.
  • “If God is certain to exist, then surely divine retribution shall find me.”

  • Once Upon a Time, there was a superhero known as The Plutonian. He was someone that many can look up to, and arguably, someone that seems to follow Superman's morals by heart. Unfortunately, one too many bad things happened (including a toll on his ego), he lost his shit and turned into a destructive force of evil. With that, not only did he get a darker costume, but also a different hairstyle.
  • Despite being the former High Priest of Regime Superman, the two are on pretty bad terms with each other (though this is likely a result of the High Councilor's Knight Templar tendencies). Battles between the two can get rather destructive.
  • Among the handful of allies that the Plutonian has is Aurum, another Fallen Hero that's had a Broken Pedestal for some time. No one can say for certain if it's true or not (and many are hoping it's not), but the Plutonian is trying to get Aurum to embrace his own powers and cause chaos.
    • Speaking of fallen heroes, the Plutonian has also been seen alongside General Grievous, Katsumi Daido, and Shego. There are rumors that the four (Aurum doesn't have much interest in this particular group, at least for now) are going to form a group dedicated to targeting those who have redeemed themselves and trying to atone for their former actions.
    • Both Reaper and Plutonian were former heroes that turned evil due to circumstances regarding attention and got a new look on top of it. However, the Plutonian got a lot of attention and not all of it was positive and Reaper...didn't get a lot of attention in general. Reaper is rather jealous that the Plutonian even had attention to start with and more annoyed that the Plutonian doesn't have much time to hang out with him.
  • One of the factors that lead to the Plutonian to become evil was him taking criticism very poorly. A number of people learned that the criticisms happened only sporadically and that the few criticisms drove him over the edge. Many believe that things would be far worse if he heard a lot more criticism than normal (especially since he has excellent hearing). A lot of dread is bound to occur if he were to take part in a contest in the House of Popularity, a place where criticism by many is bound to happen.
  • If someone has redeemed themselves or is currently trying to atone for their actions, then they would hold him in very low regard. The most notable instances of that are the F.I.S Receptor Children and Lordgenome. The former for having their title being the inverse of his (though the Plutonian doesn't care about it and finds that reason to hate him very petty), and the latter because of the aforementioned rumors regarding Plutonian and Aurum (of whom Lordgenome is trying to help get back on track). That said, a few of these particular deities are convinced that there may be a way for the Plutonian to become good again.
    • Wander is one of the handful of deities who believes that the Plutonian can be redeemed. It is possible, but extremely difficult, to get the Plutonian to do at least a good deed in his current state. Whether or not it can happen no one knows (and the supervillain tends either ignore him or attack him and Sylvia just to get them to leave him alone), but Wander is convinced that there is a way for the Plutonian to return to his days of being a genuine hero, regardless of how messed up the Plutonian is.
  • More or less, every superhero in the Pantheon hate him for his actions. Superman, in particular, is both disappointed and angry at him. Disappointed because the Plutonian was someone who tried to follow the path of being a hero like Superman was and failed. Angry because the Plutonian turned back on his former ideals with no intention of returning to them.
    • Ironically enough, part of the Plutonian's essence managed to make its way to a universe where Superman's real-life creators were at, thus inspiring the then-young writing duo to create the Man of Steel. In a very loose way, Superman does have a bit of essence from the Plutonian; it's just that the former is much more stable than the latter.
  • When he was still a superhero, the Plutonian fell in love with Alana Patel, his universe's equivalent of Lois Lane. Unfortunately when he revealed the truth about his identity to Alana, she didn't take it well. Because of that, the Plutonian holds nothing but contempt towards many love interests of superheroes (including Lois Lane).
  • If there's one type of person The Plutonian hates to no end, it would be chessmasters, as they remind him of Modeus (The Plutonian actually keeps his distance from Lex Luthor given that both Lex and Modeus are similar in some aspects). However, there are some chessmasters that The Plutonian is on watch for.
    • Plutonian is highly wary of Ozymandias, a very smart being who also happened to be a fallen hero like the Plutonian. Adrian does understand why the Plutonian fell from grace, but is more than willing to have some plans for him in case the Plutonian goes too far (not that he hasn't already).
    • Lelouch's supposed unpredictability has also put The Plutonian on edge and considering that Lelouch is good-enough friends with Ozymandias, it's another reason for the Plutonian to be wary. In addition, there are rumors going around that a joint plan by the two is being considered to take down The Plutonian if things go really bad in the Pantheon and the problems can be traced to The Plutonian.
  • Before becoming a supervillain, Syndrome was originally someone who had idolized a superhero (Bob Parr). His turn to evil was because Bob didn't live up to the man formerly known as Buddy's expectations. Although both Syndrome and Plutonian do work together in targeting superheroes, there has been some tension between the two, mostly out of their own self-centered desires to get more attention. And then there's the fact that the former superhero Plutonian became evil out of his own failure to be adored by everyone as a superhero and Syndrome, even as a supervillain, tried to be a hero for his own sake at the expense of other heroes.
    • Suffice to say, the Parr Family was on edge after finding out their arch-enemy is working with another dangerous supervillain, even if that particular alliance isn't the best one there is. That family is already keeping tabs on him, whilst Syndrome has been convincing the Plutonian to eliminate the Incredibles. The Plutonian has thought about it, but has other matters in his mind for the time being.
  • There is a lot of tension between him and The Doctor, mostly because the latter brings to mind Qubit. The tension is even more pronounced with the Tenth Doctor since that one looks very similar to Qubit.
  • Both the Plutonian and Dr. Manhattan served as very powerful beings in their own universes and although they used to be involved with heroism, they moved away from it very differently. While Dr. Manhattan became more withdrawn, the Plutonian simply took his anger out on his world. The blue Physical God is rather disappointed that a former hero would devolve into a mass murderer simply because things didn't go how the Plutonian wanted it to be.
  • Rau Le Creuset has taken a liking to the Plutonian's destructive tendencies against humanity due to, as they put it, the selfishness that humans have to offer. The fact that the two of them are not exactly human beings in a traditional sense served to strengthen their friendship.
  • Part of his childhood involved being sent to multiple foster families, only to get removed from all of them due to his powers. Some of the deities in the House of Family (mostly the ones that have had a terrible childhood, though that can include those not from the aforementioned house) feel somewhat sorry about that, but they still concede that it doesn't justify the atrocities the Plutonian committed later on. The Plutonian doesn't like everyone from that house, mostly because it brings back bad memories of his childhood.
  • The Plutonian is not so much someone who has Superman's abilities, but more of a Reality Warper that just doesn't know he has that power (though he knows that he is very powerful as is). If the Plutonian does become aware of the fact that he is even more powerful than he is currently, who knows what would happen (especially since the GUAG has been trying to figure out ways to end his madness).

  • Ascended after nearly taking over the planet Earth with an army of To'kustars, which solidified his place as truly evil. Many of the gods had found most of his deeds to be...rather odd. Involving attempts at fame, raiding restaurants for chili fries, and sending Ben Tennyson into a deep sleep with an alien parasite.
  • After his ascendance, he had been very antagonistic to Ben Tennyson, since the two share a very "unique" history together. They had nearly clashed once again in the Pantheon, if it weren't for Batman's intervention.
  • He had kept breaking into the House of Food in order to take all the chili fries that they had. This had caused him to be hated by Phillip J. Fry.
  • He attempted to scan The Doctor's DNA, so he could become a Time Lord himself. Although, this caused him to be enemies with The Doctor, most notably his Twelfth incarnation.
  • Sora doesn't take Albedo kindly whenever they cross paths, most notably because Albedo is an evil copy of Ben Tennyson, and could be able to disguise himself as his counterpart at any time and ruin his name. Sora has also been wary of Albedo, almost believing him to be a vessel for Master Xehanort due to his white hair, and occasional gold eyes.
  • Everyone in the Pantheon that does not have any interest in chili fries is disgusted by the way Albedo eats them like a cannibal who had just downed his next prey. Albedo has come up with an excuse for this, saying that it's the only food he likes.
  • Was once forced into becoming a child version of the same form he's usually in, but after he ascended, he returned to his current form.
  • Albedo had once attempted to steal the prototype Omnitrix that was in The Vault, in order to have a real Omnitrix. Unfortunately, he failed and only managed to get a small chip of tech from it, which he used to upgrade his Omnitrix to the Ultimatrix.
  • The knowledge of Gwen Tennyson and Kevin Levin being in the Pantheon has recently unnerved Albedo, due to the fact that the same three people who defeated him are in the same place as him.
  • Is on good terms with the likes of Ultron, although both have different methods of dominion.
  • He finds being stuck in his current form to be a pain sometimes, and enjoyable other times.
  • He finds Batman to be a formidable opponent, but often boasts about how he could beat him easily.
  • Though he's cruel and selfish, he is absolutely disgusted by the likes of Allen Gregory, Johnny Test, and Peter Griffin. He finds their actions to be far worse than his, and is glad that they're in the Disgraces with no chance of being set free.
  • Is EXTREMELY afraid of Springtrap due to his terrifying appearance, and even his crimes disgust him that he won't even go within ten feet of his temple. Although, he finds Freddy Fazbear to be laughably unhorrifying.
  • Has been taking a liking to Dio Brando, mostly for their shared hate of Jotaro Kujo.
  • Finds Jotaro Kujo to be a serious threat to him after hearing about what he had done to those who had done wrong.
  • "Why bother with a cell? This human body is prison enough. But someday I will be free, then they will all suffer, starting with Ben Tennyson. Until that day... BRING ME CHILI FRIES!"

  • Enemies: All Ascended Toku Heroes (especially Kamen Rider Double (Shotaro Hidari and Philip)), every deity that turned to the side of good
  • Opposed By: Tomoko Nozama
  • Originally an Intermediate Demon rank member of the Demonic Legion, Katsumi Ascended into the proper Pantheon with a thirst for vengeance against the Toku Base due to being killed off by Kamen Rider Double during NEVER's raid over the city of Futo.
    • Later on, Daido had successfully kicked Nerissa out of the throne for the Fallen Hero trope before he took the title and put her under his wing as his High Priestess, much to Nerissa's annoyance.
  • Katsumi has an array of T2 Gaia Memories in his set, including his own Eternal Memory which has the power to nullify his opponent's Gaia Memory, the Unicorn Memory which he executes a powerful punch attack, and the Zone Memory which gathers all of his T2 Memories in his Maximum Slots to unlock his full potential.
  • In the past, Katsumi was one of the most finest Toku Base members until he suddenly jumped the slippery slope by defeating Dr. Prospect, at the cost of losing his sanity. Now antagonizes every Good-aligned Gods with passion.
  • Ryoma Sengoku had found interest with his abilities of neutralizing every Gaia Memory users, as the mad scientist wants to upgrade the T2 Eternal Memory using the data gathered from every ascended Toku Heroes to ensure their victory against them. Also, Basco of the Trollkaiger was intrigued of his actions as he expects to work with him someday.
  • Had made an alliance with Tanya because she was impressed with his act of attacking his own hometown, Futo, just get his revenge on both Museum and Foundation X.
  • Became allies with Albert Wesker, a fellow undead, due to Wesker became interest in Daido's status as a Necro-Over as he want to add it to his research to improve Daido's strength.
  • He had crossed paths with Monokuma as the bear was intrigued of his atrocities that he commit back in his own world. The Mastermind Junko Enoshima had found him interesting due to his mercenary status reminding her a lot of her twin sister Mukuro Ikusaba before she proposed an alliance with him as they work together in their schemes.
  • In the wake of his Ascension, he proceeds to attack every single redeemed Gods within the pantheon with his full intention to turn them back into the dark side while calling their previous villainous names as a mockery for them. Because of this, notable redeemed Gods such as Mitsuzane Kureshima, Sayaka Miki, Setsuna Higashi, and Chase, gained an ire on his actions and they warned the others to stay alert against this dangerous threat.
    • This made him enemies with Roberta as well as she despised him with a passion because of his extreme revenge towards the Sonozaki's Museum organization and Foundation X reminding her of her act of revenge on the ones who killed her master Diego Lovelace. This statement had made Daido laugh as he told her that she is no different to him when it comes to extreme revenge.
    • Judai Yuki also hates his guts as Daido's fell from grace reminding him of his descent into the Supreme King. Not to mention that he also considered him a false Kamen Rider due to him committing alot of atrocities in his days as a terrorist.
  • Due him being a evil Rider, he was opposed by Tomoko Nozama due to the research she found in an article about his actions (and his former allies) attacked the city of Futo, which she deemed him a disgrace of what a true Kamen Rider stands for.

  • Rival: Yoko Minato (Psycho Pink)
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Each other, Shadow Moon, Trakeena
  • It was a strange day in the Pantheon as many good-aligned deities were attack by other good-aligned deities. First the ToQger were seen battling Iron Man, She Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain America and Hawkeye. Then some how Kamen Rider OOO's Complete Combos of Gatakiriba, Latorartar, Sagohzo, Shauta, Tajadol were fighting Nightwing, Starfire, Beast Boy, Cyborg and Raven. But what didn't make any sense at all was pre-Rebellion Madoka Kaname, Homura Akemi, Sayaka Miki, Kyoko Sakura, and Mami Tomoe battling Team RWBY. Turns out, all those attacks were carry out by the Psycho Rangers who were ascended to the Pantheon.
    • Even if they were found out, the Psycho Rangers still continue to use their shape shifting ability to cause chaos in the pantheon. Like turning themselves into one of the ascended Kagura girls and attacking the others and pretending to be the Investigation Team's Shadows to play with their minds.
  • Thanks to Ryoma Sengoku's battle data collecting and Basco securing blank Ranger Keys, the Psycho Rangers are able to use the them to transform themselves into complete set of already ascended teams including Riders, Rangers, Pretty Cure, etc.
  • Despite the Psycho Rangers being a team, they sometimes can't stand each other. In fact, Psycho Yellow once stabbed Psycho Pink in the back. Luckily, or unluckily, their hatred for Rangers of any kind make them an effective team.
    • Speaking of their Hatred of Rangers, they did attack both the Lol Rangers and Trollkaiger. Hey, they are Rangerish.
  • Psycho Pink is some what more feared out of the other Rangers. Why? Because through her machinations, she was actually able to kill Kendrix Morgan, the first Pink Galaxy Ranger after she sacrificed herself to destroy Psycho Pink's superweapon. She now wants to repeat that by killing every Pink ascended Ranger or Magical Girl.
    • This goal has also made her a rival towards Yoko Minato since she is the only Pink Rider.
    • Psycho Pink, and by extension, the other Psycho Rangers earned the ire of Tuxedo Mask and the Sailor Guardians after Psycho Pink went after Sailor Chibi-Moon.
  • For some odd reason, their symbol is an N despite being the PSYCHO Rangers. Wonder what's that's all about?
  • Each Psycho Rangers have their own monster form. While in this state, they are more powerful but they lose their ability to use their keys.
  • They are pretty fine being a five person team and are in no hurry for a sixth member. There is actually a time when there was a Green Psycho Ranger.
  • They are currently waiting for the day when the Space Power Rangers ascend so they can exact their revenge. For the time being, they're fine with confronting the Lost Galaxy Power Rangers. Psycho Pink is ecstatic to fight off Kendrix again.

  • Followers: Hades, Nerissa, Gul Dukat
  • Heralds: His fellow Yellow Lanterns
  • Allies: Magneto, Doctor Doom, Captain Cold, Fiddlesticks, Grand Moff Tarkin
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: High Councillor Kal-El
  • Potential candidates for the Yellow Lantern Ring: Batman, Valvatorez, Majority of the House of Fear with special mentions to Medivh, Doomguy, Freddy Krueger, Fiddlesticks and Diablo, Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin, Light Yagami, Pride, Galactus, Lord Brevon, The Pyro, Vladimir Makarov, Ornstein and Smough and in general anyone who is The Dreaded is considered
  • Disappointed in: Pitch
  • Friendly Enemies with: The other Lantern Corps and the rest of the Superheroic Gods in the Pantheon, especially Hal Jordan/Green Lantern.
  • Enemies: Nekron, the Anti-Monitor, Krona, Mongul, No Face, Lich, Daffy Duck, The Immortal God-Emperor of Mankind, Fear of the Emotions, Darkseid, Mongul
  • Opposes: The GUAD, The GUAC and the GUAL.
  • Thaal Sinestro started out as a mere archaeologist, fascinated by the more orderly and glorious ancient empires of Korugar. Chosen to be the Green Lantern of Sector 1417, he became a great friend to fellow lantern Abin Sur, a mentor and friend to future Green Lantern of 2814 Hal Jordan, and was regarded as the greatest Green Lantern of them all. Alas, this would not last. The secret to how he kept his sector in perfect order was discovered; he had become dictator of his homeworld through fear, all for "the greater good". Banished, he would rise to become one of the Green Lantern Corps greatest villains.
  • Was awarded the title of God of Fear after As Nodt was attacked by Fiddlesticks. Sinestro allowed Fiddlesticks to join the Sinestro Corps, to which Fiddlestick accepted. Later on he decided that "fear tropes" felt too general for him, gave up his position as "God of Fear" and managed to get to get Hero's Evil Predecessor instead...though the "evil" is for his own sake, and would prefer him being referred to as "Hal's Necessarily Harsh Predecessor."
  • Despite his renegade status, he still wants the Green Lantern Corps to be a force for peace and order (his order, mind you); the Sinestro Corps War was a gambit to make them abandon the no kill rule. Despite his villainous attributes, Sinestro doesn't want to join the GUAE, and since its current leader is a Control Freak worse than himself, he doesn't feel part of the GUAL yet. Instead he's become a GUAG Token Evil Teammate, working to make it less soft and increase the amount of evil teammates "for what needs to be done". Everyone is keeping an eye on him, but many believe his presence there may complete the Heel–Face Turn he's been playing with for a while.
  • The House of Fear may no longer be his home, but it is where he's comfortable in. Asides from Fiddlesticks, he has chosen the following gods, though they must first conquer their greatest fear.
    • Darkrai has been pressured into helping the Sinestro Corps, as the Korugarian seeks his power over nightmares. He has promised to help the Pitch Black Pokemon overcome its Power Incontinence by using the ring as focus. He sees potential in the homunculus Pride as well due to how he fights, but isn't quite ready to give him a ring as he's still undyingly loyal to Father, who might get in the way of the Sinestro Corps' ambitions.
    • Has complete disgust over Fear of the Emotions. He ponders how on earth is he the personification of fear, if all he does is ponder and be scared of anything around him. This makes him belittle the humans due to their fears being similar to the one in the Emotions.
    Sinestro: So, this is how humans perceive fear? Well no wonder they're weak-minded.
    • Has no idea how the hell is he supposed to give Giygas a Ring. Then again, considering he's the Almighty Idiot, this halted his progress on reinstating him to the Corps.
    • Freddy Kruger, like Romat-Ru, is fine being a Psycho for Hire. Sinestro is working to let him generate a Hard Light body with the yellow ring. Balanar has joined the Sinestro Corps for similar reasons.
    • Has also spoken with The Green Goblin, seeing his motives and theme to be a worthy successor to Jonathan Crane while he isn't around. This has given him greater power to finally kill Spiderman for good, but he has restrained him in such activity.
    • Has a good understanding and a Commonality Connection with Medivh for many reasons. For instance, they are actually Anti Heroes who have dealt with more evil entities (Medivh to Sargeras and Sinestro to Anti-Monitor). Followed by their turning to evil or Knight Templar motivation, and later on their legacies (Former had Karazhan's magic and the latter had the Corps). Thanks to this, Medivh has willingly accepted the Ring itself, most especially as a asset to defeat Sargeras once he ascends. Light Yagami has also been considered for the Sinestro Corps due to sharing a similar sense of justice and striking fear into the hearts of criminals.
    • And if that wasn't enough, the Ring also sensed and brought the Pyro among the ranks of the Corps. While Sinestro and the rest are glad to bring him in, the Mercernaries of Mann Co. on the other hand and their pals aren't glad one bit. And that wasn't the end of it, because Vladimir Makarov was also recruited into the ranks of Corps, seeing his usage of the Inner Circle and his fear factor from the world gave him an opportunity to join them. And oddly enough, Ornstein and Smough joined, not because of their fear in-universe, but because they are feared by many players for being that fucking annoying boss in their univese.
    • Despite being affiliated with fear, he's rather disappointed in Pitch, as he sees his fear overtaking himself as a disgrace to what true fear is. As a result, he hasn't given him a Yellow Lantern Ring and decided to give him a "Reason You Suck" Speech in front of the house to solidify his disappointment towards him.
    Sinestro: You know, fear is powered by ourselves being the fear. We show the people why we are feared. For you, what you have become, it baffles me. And you are affiliated to fear? Not a single chance will you have anything to do, with us and our Corps.
    • He has tried to convince Batman to join his corps, for obvious reasons. To quote himself during the "forever evil" incident of his universe: "What a wonderful yellow lantern you would make, Batman."
    • He has also tried to convince the Punisher to join his corps, but unfortunately for him, Atrocitus got to him first.
    • Upon learning about Valvatorez's successful conquest of the netherworld and his ambition to "become a symbol of fear itself", He has decided to give a Yellow ring to him as a sign of friendship. He sees the tyrant as being "cut from the same cloth", not unlike himself and Black Adam. Fenrich doesn't trust him one bit, but he appreciates the gesture nonetheless, because the ring's power may come in handy someday.
  • Some have pointed out that with the name and mustache, how anyone would trust him. He's quick to point out that his name refers to "sinistra", the Latin word for left. He is left-handed, after all. Besides, Sinestro's his last name. His first name is the rather innocuous "Thaal".
  • He was surprised that he has an Even Eviler Counterpart of himself in a world where Superman becomes a tyrant. This version is a lot more sadistic and selfish than him, and the mainstream Sinestro looks down on him. He also has no respect for the Hal Jordan of that reality, due to being a Dirty Coward. His Hal would rather die than serve under him. High Councillor Kal-El is a member of the Sinestro Corps in that universe, and while the main Sinestro is fine with him helping out he's keeping an eye on him as he doesn't trust his own alternate self.
  • Initially his yellow ring harnessed the impurity inside the Green Lantern Central Battery, yellow being the weakness to the Green Lantern rings. Having realized the truth behind this impurity, he's formed an entire corps based on its true power of fear (though the Green Lantern rings are no longer weak to yellow). Naturally half his corps is unstable, but for the most part they're loyal, especially Arkillo. Batman temporarily wielded a yellow ring, as did Mongul during his coup.
  • Once served the Anti-Monitor, who served as the powerhouse and official leader of the Sinestro Corps. In truth he was using Monty for his own purposes, and fully intended to dispose of him afterwards. Nowadays, he hopes to have Galactus help out as a more loyal and stable muscle, promising to find him worlds full of dissidents to devour. Galactus is considering this, though is so powerful already the yellow ring would more or less be a trinket, but it would at the very least give him a minor power boost.
  • Once worked with the super-villain Gods in the Pantheon, he leaves due to his status as a Well-Intentioned Extremist. He likes to work with fellow well-intentioned or order-seeking villains like Magneto and Doctor Doom. Grand Moff Tarkin was happy to work with him as well, as he believes fear to be an essential means of keeping order. Of course he's still works with psychopaths so long as they inspire fear and their psychosis can be diverted to ensuring his vision.
  • With Hal Jordan's announcement of godhood, Sinestro signed, since in the long run he knew this would happen. Regardless of what histories exist between the two, Sinestro intends to continue with his own ambitions, no matter how hard Jordan intends to prevent them.
  • He has a daughter in the form of Soranik Natu, who's mother gave her up to escape the persecution his actions would inevitably bring. She's had issues with her ring due to her father's abuse of it, and is currently serving as a Morality Chain for the Sinestro Corps as a whole.
  • When the First Lantern Volthoom was released, Sinestro took a key role in taking down the Reality Warper. He's managed to successfully bond with Parallax while retaining his mind and soul, finally getting back at the old Guardians of the Universe for all they've done. He's busy with trying to fix the situation with his race, given Volthoom destroyed his homeworld, and his experience with the emotion vampire leads him to detest No Face.
  • Once battled against Daffy Duck, who'd gained a Green Lantern ring and became the Green Lantoon.
  • He was disgusted to learn that the Lich shares his voice, seeing him as Adventure Time's answer to Nekron, and doesn't understand why Orion, Hellboy or the Hulk of all gods would also sound like him.
  • Has a rather huge beef with the Immortal God-Emperor of Mankind as his mindset of "Greater Good" reminds him greatly of the Tau, a race he would rather not discuss.
    Emps: For one second, I thought I would be safe from the implications of the Tau. But now you brought them up, and I'm getting vibes all over me about that pathetic race. All because of some pink-colored lunatic.
  • "You will know the meaning of true fear."

  • Mega Man X reigned over the land of Neo Arcadia with his Four Guardians, a set of lieutenants created from fragments of his DNA. When an energy crisis hit the land, X deduced that Reploids were the cause of the crisis and proceeded to brand Reploids as Mavericks to be terminated for increasingly minor offenses. Except this was not the real X at all... but rather, a copy, created to lead Neo Arcadia in his stead by the scientist Ciel after X decided to leave his body behind and become a Cyber Elf. Lacking the necessary experience to align his morality, this copy of X was strangely exactly what the original X had always feared being turned into by the constant battles; cold-hearted, ruthlessly sure of his own perfection, and lacking in empathy for those around him. Thus, when Ciel awoke Zero from his stasis to stop Copy X's twisted rule, Original X supported his best friend steadfastly in destroying his malignant clone.
  • Sage Harpuia used to be his loyal lieutenant, serving him alongside the rest of the Four Guardians even after he was resurrected in an odd state. That is until a particular "Missile Incident" where Copy X ordered a strike that killed a very large number of the very humans he swore to protect. Hidden Phantom, who sacrificed himself before Copy X's first defeat and thus did not get the front row seat the other Guardians did for this, still thinks (or at least hopes) there's a chance he can be reformed.
  • What the hell would possess any version of X to betray the humans like this? Well, his resurrection was in a corrupted state called Copy X Mark II, where he was easily malleable to the influence of one malicious scientist/megalomaniac known as Dr. Weil, who needed the missile strike to further his own nefarious plans and thus used the lost-minded Copy X as a figurehead to carry it forward. Of course, he was once again put down by Zero in the end. Copy X will never forgive Weil for such an act.
  • Since ascending, has been known to team up with the other Mega Man deities to fight Dr. Weil and Omega for two reasons. One, he hates them both for what they did to him in Mega Man Zero 3 as described above, and two, their goal is to destroy humanity by causing it as much suffering as possible, while Copy X's goal is to save it by committing Reploid genocide.
  • Is joining with YHVH's "Regime" for the Pantheonic Rebellion, where he and many other deities will subdue the will of the GUAG and GUAE. The declaration did not please Zero, seeing as Madoka is like a certain human Zero fought for.
  • Mega Man is disgusted with how something that inherited his legacy could turn to evil.
  • Does not comprehend how he isn't so different from Homura, seeing as the original script for the identity of Master X being not a copy of his predecessor, but that very same nearly 1:1 match for Homura's Face–Heel Turn that Original X feared.
  • Is happy to see his predecessor ascend, though the feeling's not mutual. Especially when he keeps claiming himself to be a perfect copy yet refuses to understand X's true dream of Reploid and human coexistence.
  • Despised by Elpizo, who was a direct victim of his efforts to eliminate Reploids for the sake of humans. Elpizo intends to personally kill him.
  • Naturally, he stands at odds with beings such as Ultron, Sigma, and Dr. Gero because their goals are the opposite of his: Ultron's goal is to eradicate all life to replace it with machines, Sigma's goal is to evolve Reploids to become powerful and rule over all of creation, and Dr. Gero is a heartbroken villain whose grief has been twisted into vengeance to the point of being amenable to the two's ideas. Meanwhile, Copy X's goal is to protect humanity by exterminating all machines that aren't affiliated with him.
