  • 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.

  • Disappointed in: Avenger (F/HA)
  • Special Relationships with: Jeanne d'Arc (her original and not-sister)
  • Born of the Caster Servant Gilles de Rais' wish for a vengeful Jeanne d'Arc as retribution for burning the original Jeanne at the stake, Jeanne d'Arc Alter is a darkened version of the Saint of Orleans' legend where she avenges her own punishment at the stake by subjecting others to the same fate. Once she was created, she began to lay waste on France, summoning dragons, wyverns and Servants to do her bidding and empowered the latter with Madness Enhancement to keep them under control. It was only through the effort of the Master of Chaldea as well as the world summoning the original Jeanne in response to her assault does Jeanne Alter fail and Gilles de Rais defeated, ending the Singularity and history is restored.
    • But her existence did not stop there. Aside from minor summons against Jeanne and attempting to ruin Santa Saber Alter's first Christmas run, Jeanne Alter came back to create counterfeit Heroic Spirits to fulfill a new dream: creating a harem of handsome men in order to feel loved. Even after the plan failed, she had gained newfound respect towards the Master of Chaldea and was allowed to the Throne of Heroes soon afterwards. Once she was summoned under him as an Avenger, one of the first things she had done is to defeat the lingering resentment in the citizens of France before it becomes a new Singularity; the proof of her willing to own up to her crimes despite not regretting them makes her more qualified to be a Heroic Spirit and fully cements her position in the Throne. Later in an attempt to foil Santa Alter once again, she carelessly drank a bottle of Child Gilgamesh's Lily potion thinking it was different one, turning her not only into a Lily, but a Santa. In the form now referred to as Jeanne d'Arc Alter Santa Lily, she becomes that year's Santa but she doesn't really understand human joy & happiness, because such things weren't relevant to what she used to be as a wraith of resentment and the way she brings out presents is based on need instead of want, so the Master concocts an elaborate plan with the rest of his Servants to bring out her innermost desire: seeing the ocean, a sentiment the original Jeanne knows best; with a true link to Jeanne's legend, this resolution fully cements Jeanne Alter's existence. Jeanne Alter also contributed in the fight against Goetia and the Demon Pillars, aiding in the downfall of the Demon Pillar Andromalius.
    • Jeanne Alter later aided the Master in the Shinjuku Pseudo-Singularity as a major ally, bantering with Saber Alter along the way. Later into the mission, she sacrificed herself to defeat the Avenger of Shinjuku and was presumed dead until after the final battle, where she demands a dance with the Master since she was jealous of Saber Alter dancing with him first. Later, a Singularity appears in Hawaii and Jeanne Alter was once again a major ally aiding the Master in figuring out its true cause as they must create Doujinshi for the first time; Jeanne Alter accepted as she wants to one-up the author of a doujin who aggravated her enough to take up drawing. When the culprit was revealed to be B.B. instead of the suspicious Foreigner Servant was only trying to seek the other Foreigner that's causing the Singularity, the Master and his Servants eventually defeated her; in the aftermath it turns out that the very doujin Jeanne Alter was one-upping is authored by herself, sent to the past to make her draw in the first place, a fact the then-Berserker was embarrassed at.
  • Jeanne Alter was ascended before the Master of Chaldea had his foothold on the Pantheon called in by her original (much to the fake's chagrin), having the trope of Mirror Self as her part of her position. But as she takes a good look at it, she came to the realization that it's a lot better to have a title that accurately represents her existence, no matter how much she hates the reason why; she then makes her case to the Court of the Gods to renew her title. She reasoned that she is a fake copy of Jeanne d'Arc who supposedly embodies the evil in her heart as Gilles intended, but the real Jeanne never had any evil in her regardless of the atrocities she had committed. The Judges evaluated her old title and decided to approve her title change; she is now the Goddess of Villainous Fakes.
  • Not many people would say it in front of her face, but when her Master had finally ascended into the Pantheons, she was acting excitedly during the party thrown by Pinkie Pie. He was one of the only people (probably the only one) who truly understands her true intentions: she wanted to be loved and accepted and she wanted to be her own person separate from the original Jeanne d'Arc and Fujimaru gives her both, no matter how much the Tsundere act failed to convince anyone otherwise. Speaking of Jeanne, she was glad that Alter is here as she wanted to play "big sister" since she had become the little one for far too long; in more serious circumstances, should Alter go back to being evil, Jeanne can exorcise her if possible since Alter is an evil spirit. Jeanne Alter herself again wanted nothing to do with her since she wants to stand out as herself, yet she can't help but getting roped in with her original's comical shenanigans; they do put aside their rivalry to aid their Master should he need their call in a dire time, since without him they both wouldn't have been able to materialize anyways.
    • To rub in the metaphorical salt wound even further, the separate Jeanne Alter Santa Lily was made her Herald. Jeanne Alter hated seeing a younger version of herself, finding her to be a brat who should be acting like an actual child (which she isn't wrong about) and Santa Lily likewise feels ashamed by looking at the peevishness of the adult Jeanne Alter. Like with the original Jeanne, Jeanne Alter swallows her pride and reluctantly cooperates with her if only to ensure the Master's safety.
      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!
    • She was a little apprehended when she saw that Gilles ascended along with his Master, Ryunnosuke Uryuu because on one hand, his hammy antics, worshipping of her and creepy tentacle attacks are irritating but on the other, she finds his presence a breath of fresh air from seeing too many a goody-two-shoes in Chaldea and plus, without him she wouldn't be here appreciating Master's faith in her. Most people have a fondness for seeing Jeanne Alter with Saber Alter for being much alike, backstories notwithstanding but the thing is, they have a fierce rivalry towards each other, as in "they would rather kill each other in cold blood than become true allies" fierce with their bitter opinions not helping to calm them down. They do agree on a few things, such as defending their Master and humanity in general and their own merits being worthy of each other's respect, but you'll mostly catch them fighting if you see them around.
      Saber Alter: ...Mad dog.
      Jeanne Alter: Ice bitch queen.
      Saber Alter: It seems our rivalry didn't end in Chaldea. I fully expect you to start it again, no?
      Jeanne Alter: Heh, of course I am! These days, you and I will settle this to the death real soon.
      Saber Alter: I cannot wait to pummel you into a puddle myself.
    • Brynhild and Siegfried find it amusing that Jeanne Alter had made counterfeits of them that are just as real as them... just to fill in archetypes of a harem story. They have no problems allying with her of course since the original is there to keep her in check; Jeanne Alter was at least a bit glad that she's not amongst the 'Brynhild's 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. Sieg finds her existence a bit weird and even more confused when Jeanne introduced her as her sister; regardless he tries to befriend her but like with other people, she pushed him away. Atalante finds her to be hard to work with, not just because she's a dark version of Jeanne but also she had undergone Madness Enhancement under her control back in Orleans and she refused to stand by that; not that Jeanne Alter cared much about it but she does look out for her Berserker Alter variation since she's more violent in that form.
    • She hates Moriarty, due to the fact that he tried to destroy the entire world with a meteor during the Shinjuku Pesudo-Singularity, though she already recognizes she probably shouldn't criticize him because she tried to destroy France with dragons herself. Shakespeare got a kick out of finding an evil version of Jeanne d'Arc to exist and if he does another production of Henry VI Part 1, she will play the part of Jeanne d'Arc; Jeanne Alter herself wants nothing to do with the playwright since his penchant for cheap and extravagant drama made her understand why the original Jeanne dislikes what he did to hernote . She got pretty disappointed with her "senpai" in the Avenger class being very weak so she's not gonna expect much of him sooner or later and Angra could care less about her, although he's fascinated that there's more Servants under his class which delights him that his influence towards the Greater Grail is working.
      Jeanne Alter: That's the original Avenger? Huh, is that supposed to be a joke? Wait a second. The same class as me? No way... My senpai is too weak...
    • She had experience in fighting the dire threats of the Beasts, Goetia, Tiamat and Kiara Sesshouin, who have been detrimental to her world's history with their sheer power and misplaced love for humanity and she has no problem in joining in fending them off again. Goetia in particular sees her as part of Gilles' failed plan to ruin Orleans, France through history but otherwise, he mostly rebuffs her as another of the Master's living weapon. Ever since the ServaFes debacle and hearing the news of the SE.RA.PH. incident, Jeanne Alter is rocky with B.B. since her definition of "helping" the Master of Chaldea involves less than savoury methods of keeping them safe, which is expected of her being an A.I. from the residual feelings of the Sakura Matou AI on the Moon Cell; she nowadays is helping the Master normally but that doesn't make the Avenger Servant quell her understandable concern of her.
  • Being an Evil Knockoff, Jeanne Alter has a lot of noteworthy interactions with those like her but to her dismay most of them are batshit insane even for her. Like for instance, Copy X and Metal Sonic who are evil copies of Mega Man X and Sonic the Hedgehog respectively. Copy X wants to defend humanity much like his predecessors but his extreme methods borders into near-villainy which most of the heroes he faced disagrees with very heavily, a sentiment Jeanne Alter agrees and shares. Metal Sonic shares her angst in being second best but while Jalter's woes and attempts are ineffectual at worst, Metal Sonic's are destructive and now lives to replace Sonic and nothing else which honestly turns her off from making an ally in him.
    • She's not an outright clone, but she's got the angst which Rau Le Creuset tries to convince her with to his side as he sees destructive value in her powers. She didn't bought anything he said, because even if the original outclasses her regardless, she still wants to stand on her own without her while she goes on her own alive as well, and if he hurts her or their Master she'll give him a burning so bad he can't pilot his mobile suit for months; Rau clenches his teeth and relents, missing his chance to have a vindictive witch at his side. And then there's Mileena, a Tarkatan clone of the Edenian princess Kitana created by Shang Tsung as a sister to her, but Kitana finds her to be an abomination that shouldn't exist instead. Mileena thinks Jalter should be getting along with her "sister" the original Jeanne, but while she's standoffish about that relationship, Alter makes it clear that she wouldn't want her dead as badly as Mileena would after she was rejected, even if both of them also have teen-like behaviours that came way after their conceptions.
      Mileena: You should be bonding with your "sister"!
      Jeanne Alter: First of all, she's not. Secondly, she might as well ignore me instead.
      Mileena: Yet, she does not give up on you. Will you ignore that...?
    • Yapool specializes in creating Evil Knockoffs of the Ultras in the form of Ace Killer (which he can possess, too) which is a far cry from her making counterfeits of Servants during her harem shenanigans. He prefers her Ruler Alter self as the her right now is loyal to the Master and he finds it to be a big loss of a potential ally; Jeanne Alter likewise can see that hatred has defined him even after coming back from the dead with it since she is also a being of hatred but should he pose a threat to her Master, she'll make sure his burning would be painful in spite of her size against him. Like Darquesse, Jeanne Alter also likes the idea of the Dark Knights' existence as she is also an evil version of a hero but unlike her, she finds them to be batshit insane (no pun intended) especially the Batman Who Laughs, the most insane version of Batman that makes Angra Mainyu look like a street thug. The same somewhat goes for the Psycho Rangers who are capable of impersonating the heroic Sentai teams to near unrecognizable levels which is something Jeanne Alter finds as annoying as fighting against the Assassin of Shinjuku.
    • She may not be an Enemy Within of Ryu like him, but Jeanne Alter still isn't very fond of Kage even if her (former) goal of destroying France would say otherwise, because she feels her reasons aren't as petty as the demonic fighter and like Saber Alter, would also prefer to kick his ass than actually work with him. Vanitas has proven too crazy for Jeanne Alter to ally with as well, even beating her in the whole "destroying everything with lots of Mooks" part; like Rau, Vanitas missed out on a powerful ally but he's considering torturing her Master so that she can give in...
    • The Avenger Servant actually relates a lot with Dark Pit, who like her is also an evil duplicate of a hero's supposed eviler traits, but came out as not that different from their nicer counterparts. In her case, she's only different in that she's standoffish and able to use La Pucelle without dying while in his case, he's cynical and scathingly honest and at the very worst just neutral and fights for himself; both of them do warm-up to people later on. The two have become Friendly Rivals in a way, and when they find the time they spar just to challenge each other's might. Due to his Rider form being a dark counterpart to Emu Hojo, Kuroto Dan is often seen being associates with her and Saber Alter, as he act himself as a buffer between the two all thanks to their opposite personalities; Jeanne Alter thinks his hammy tendencies makes him a bigger idiot than threatening, but after a he fended off a Bugster because it hindered his business she realized he's more threatening than what his behaviour implies.
  • True to her name of The Dragon Witch, Jeanne Alter can summon, empower and control dragons, wyverns and anyone with the blood of a dragon, which is believed to be an inverse phenomenon from saints possessing anecdotes of dispersing the dragon kind, such as Saint Martha or maybe Saint George. This eventually came back to bite her in the ass when Smough and Ornstein kept hounding her about it, seeing her as an enemy that needs to be vanquished; she sent them packing after summoning her world's Fafnir. Speaking of Fafnir, the dwarf turned dragon refuses to let himself be controlled by her for her gain which doesn't fazed her in the slightest since he's not from her world anyways and Fafnir there is more of a concept of monstrous greed than a singular being.
  • As she is another version of Jeanne d'Arc who in another universe is a chosen wielder of a magical artifact called the Witchblade, Sara Pezzini doesn't want to let it fall into her hands as her evil nature makes her a dangerous wielder and it's worse if it's actually compatible with her. Jeanne Alter currently has no plans to obtain the Witchblade even if it piques her curiosity, but she does finds Sara's fear to be understandable.
  • Jeanne Alter's Noble Phantasm, La Grondement du Haine represents the burning of Jeanne d'Arc at the stake for leading France's army to war against Britain and a woman leading an army was considered blasphemy and unthinkable back then. As she represents the idea of the vengeful maid of Orleans, she can freely use La Pucelle unlike the original who must use her entire lifeforce to activate it because of her legend. This led Jeanne Alter to meet the fire users Shana and Natsu Dragneel, during a stop at the sub-House of Fire and Heat. Shana is a Flame Haze, and she knew fighting all her life until meeting Yuji Sakai and falling in love with him, kinda like Jalter being angsty about her existence after her failed tenures as a villain until meeting Fujimaru and developing feelings for him. Shana finds the copy rather underwhelming and a loser at first until their first sparring when she nows finds her to be no slouch while Alter sees her as a deadpan and serious Servant Oda Nobunaga, right down to the shared voices; they both still relate for sharing skin-deep denials about their feelings for their crushes though Jalter is a little jealous Shana finally hooked up with Yuji for real. As for Natsu, who is known for befriending enemies, after one fight with her he realized that she had changed so much since her attack on France and was relieved she's less likely to harm others needlessly since her Master wouldn't ask her to. As he extends his hand to her, Jeanne Alter reluctantly shakes it as she learns that he's just as head-strong and determined as her Master minus the fire powers.
    • She doesn't dwell too much on Jeanne's burning as she's too preoccupied with one-upping her but she can understand the dangerous threat of Ragnaros the Firelord and it doesn't help that he's too reminiscent of Surtr who also wants to purge the world in fire yet both have different reasons to do so (Surtr because he's fated to and Ragnaros because he's doing what fire is doing). Like he is with other fire users, Ragnaros expresses interest in Jeanne Alter and how she utilizes said legend of the burning as her ultimate weapon.
  • Most French deities in the Pantheon other than those involved with Chaldea are apprehensive of Jeanne Alter's countrywide assault on historical France despite her owning up to it because had she succeeded, they wouldn't have existed long enough for their stories to be heard. A noteworthy one is Jean Pierre Polnareff, who can't forgive her in spite of her good looks because no one dares to soil his homeland; they duked it out and while he held out against La Pucelle, he nearly got himself staked by La Grondement Du Haine. That's because the Primal Kyogre was in the vicinity, negating her fiery Noble Phantasm and Polnareff took advantage of it by knocking La Pucelle and her flag out of her hands, finally allowing him to put her out of commission with Silver Chariot; since that fight, Alter swears to take revenge on Polnareff and Kyogre for completely humiliating her.
    • On a lesser note, Punishing Bird wants to punish Jeanne Alter for the stuff she pulled against France despite her not really doing that anymore and it being completely unable to understand nuance. Luckily, she finds that his pecks are at worst just annoying so long as no one retaliates against it, a warning she'll keep in mind.
  • Jeanne Alter finds belief to be evil since to her, it leads others into a false sense of comfort which is why she likes telling other pious Christians that she defies God just for kicks. YHVH obviously doesn't like the blasphemy she's doing to His followers despite raising good points, which is why He locked her up for the transgression. It's only when Siegfried came to free her and let her out long enough to break it to the original Jeanne that she worshipped the wrong God before fully escaping His grasp; after that, Jeanne's faith in YHVH dwindled, further increased His ire against her. As for Judge Claude Frollo, Jeanne Alter is disgustingly reminded of Bishop Pierre Cauchon who burned Jeanne at the stake and her own first victim after conception; the feeling is mutual as Frollo has a special disdain for her since to him, she's a perversion of the Saint of Orleans with an extremely titillating appearance. Aside from understanding why Esmeralda hates him, Jeanne Alter plans on burning him like she did with the bishop that condemned Jeanne.
    • Because she dared to defy YHVH, Lucifer sees value in her strength as a Servant and Jeanne Alter Santa Lily can cause liability issues with Melkor, while it doesn't affect Lucifer in any shape or form. After some decision making, she instead refuses seeing that her Master already rejects him and his philosophy, not to mention that after her assault on historical Orleans, the worst she can do in her schemes are ineffectual and less malicious anyway. Lucifer concedes, beating himself up that he should have goaded her when the Master was not around yet.
  • Previously, Jeanne Alter wants to have a harem of edgy and cute boys for her to love and hate while crusading against France. Currently, she hasn't gone back to indulging it again since the Master has given her the affection and attention she wanted but it does got her mingled with unlikely people. When he heard about it, Issei Hyodo got a good laugh about it which embarrassed her a bit, but he understands the need for love when no one else is willing to love them, as he explains to her that the reason why he keeps putting himself down even if he got the harem who loved him dearly is that his ex-girlfriend Raynare killed him once. Hearing about it, Jeanne Alter offered to join in on defeating her, hoping that she'll pay for disregarding suitors like terrible clothes and probably as another to torture unabashedly; plus, he's got a draconic form so what's not to like about it? (Other than its name...) Another person who had similar aspirations than her is Celestia Ludenberg whose dream is to be in a European castle with handsome butlers styled as vampires at her beck and call; Jeanne Alter finds it farfetched to be achievable, and then she learned that she only wanted it just to escape her boring life which she finds laughable yet understandable since it's just like living in someone else's shadow. Angered that someone like her had found out about her true, boring past, Celes remained hostile towards Jeanne Alter even if she somewhat agrees being in someone's shadow is no different than being unknown.
    • She's also one of the pnly people to call out on Kiyohime's over-attraction and intolerance to dishonesty. This got her worked up against the GUAC's Yandere Squad who banded together in order to protect their beloved, no matter the methods and if they even wanted the "help"; save for the reasonable members like Yuno, Yubel and Anna, the Squad are offended that whatever it takes for them to keep their beloved around is depraved and have declared her an enemy for the one slight. The boyfriend of two of its members Kotonoha and Sekai, Makoto Itou isn't any better in Jeanne Alter's eyes as he did a lot of stupid decisions that warranted his death at the hands of both of them; Makoto himself finds her scary due to her reputation and would rather not provoke her further lest he himself get burned at the stake as well.
  • She's extremely wary of any masochists, due to the fact when she wished for a "true female friend" in the fake Brynhild, she instead got a lesbian masochist that annoyed her to no end. It's why she began to hate the knight Darkness on one afternoon when both of them got into a fight out of an argument over... something. As Jeanne Alter got the upper hand and gave her heavy damage, she began to uh... enjoy it as if it's a pleasurable experience. Disgusted, Jeanne Alter has vowed to not approach her ever, not even in a fight.
  • Jeanne Alter has picked up various hobbies to push herself to be more than Jeanne d'Arc's evil version, and one of those is drawing manga and doujinshi even if the doujin she tried to surpassed was actually authored by herself, something that she wouldn't want anyone to bring up again out of embarrassment. Still she does tries to get pointers from the duo Ashirogi Muto and the artist Rohan Kishibe anyways, should B.B. pulled her stunt again or she's invited to a convention and she needs some quick money. The duo were impressed with her work during the course of the loops and agrees that Crossvikki Magician Girl and the Monster have proven to be her best entry, something that Rohan also agrees but finds her other previous work before that to be lacking which she already noted during the loops. The Barian Emperor Gilag has also seen her works was super impressed, so much so that he tries to show his own art to her, which is... not that good. She ended up insulting it so bad that he got sad and left; she instantly felt bad but assures herself that he seems tough and can tell he's got the tenacity and passion to keep drawing even if no progress will be made to improve.

  • 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.
  • Nemesis was picked as his first real partner in crime because The Batman Who Laughs was amused at an Ax-Crazy Batman and Superman expy teaming up.
  • 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).

    The Batman Who Laughs 
   "When I was Bruce Wayne, I thought that with enough preparation, I would always win. But I was wrong. I was trapped in an unwinnable war, refusing to see the obvious answers right in front of me. The answers that are so clear to me now with victory right around the corner. To win, you need to adapt, and to adapt, you need to be able to laugh away all the restraints. Everything holding you back. You see... a Batman who laughs... is a Batman who always wins."

  • Below The Multiverse rests the Dark Multiverse, a place where whatever can go wrong does. Unstable worlds that were never meant to exist. And when Barbatos emerged to conquer the light, he had seven versions of Bruce Wayne answer the call. And of them all, none were as infamous as their leader and Barbatos's second-in-command, The Batman Who Laughs; this iteration of Bruce Wayne was driven to the breaking point after The Joker had killed off Commissioner James Gordon and the entirety of Batman's Rogues Gallery and orphaning children by having them watch The Joker kill their parents in Crime Alley and gassing them with Joker Toxins to convert them into twisted parodies based on himself. Batman finally killed The Joker... with a terrible cost; The Dark Knight was inflicted by a spread of Joker Toxin and gradually over the days, Bruce began to grow more twisted, maniacal, and maddened until he finally snapped and went on a universal killing spree, starting with his own Batfamily. In time, Bruce killed everyone in the universe, including dear friends, family, and associates, converted his own son, Damian Wayne, and several children into Jokerized twisted parodies based on himself, and began to enjoy the thrill of wanton devastation and stripping away hope and expectations. He came to the philosophy that his morality kept him bounded and chained from desire and victory and that by having to "adapt" and "laugh away all the restraints" would he claim his prize. He rechristened himself The Batman Who Laughs.
    • It wasn't long before He Who Laughs was met by the dark god, Barbatos, who recruited him into kickstarting an invasion towards the greater multiverse. However, whereas the other six Batmen had their own desires based on loss, grievances, and a twisted way to do good, He Who Laughs had only one thing in mind; find and destroy whatever worlds and universes he stumbles across alongside demoralizing and breaking the spirits of his victims before killing them. Inevitably, he, Barbatos, and the Dark Knights would arrive in Earth 1, where they would engage in an epic battle against the universe's heroes, especially the Justice League, whom the Bruce Wayne of Earth-1 was a member of. Despite being close to breaking Batman's spirit and dooming the universe, Barbatos and the Knights were ultimately defeated and killed, and He Who Laughs became the only notable survivor of his faction, now captured and imprisoned by the Injustice League.
    • He Who Laughs however managed to escape and continue on with his plans, now becoming a more independent figure who frequently clashed against Batman, his allies, even The Joker himself, which later extended to the members of the Injustice League. It also turned out that the battle waged by Barbatos has the consequences of shattering the Source Wall, which resulted in the release of a malevolent goddess known as Perpetua. He Who Laughs wasted no time in striking an alliance with the "Mother of the Multiverse" in their shared objective of destroying all of reality and banding together with a new batch of Dark Knights as partners, however, He Who Laughs met a premature end, but had a quick backup, namely in the form of having his transference switched to that of a Bruce Wayne who had the powers of Doctor Manhattan in an effort to gain omnipotence and cosmic awareness, sacrificing his fellow Dark Knights except for one, and becoming The Darkest Knight and making up an extended goal to recreate a "New 52 Planets of Nightmares", which he planned to call "The Last 52". He defected from Perpetua and battled against heroes and villains alike in an effort to seize creation and reality for himself, killing Perpetua once the opportunity for it had arrived. As the war that tore reality and universes apart raged on, Wonder Woman challenged He Who Laughs in one last duel over who got to secure the fate of the Multiverse, culminating with the Princess of Themyscira overpowering The Darkest Knight and sending him off to a dying sun, ending the dark multiversal threat once and for all.
  • The Batman Who Laughs ascended into the Pantheon sometime after Barbatos's invasion on Earth 1. However, he came along with the core members of The Dark Knights who represented their position together as it was determined that they were best shown as a team that showcased the dark reflections, worst impulses, and possible corrupted pathways for Bruce Wayne. While initially alright, He Who Laughs grew to detest the concept of sharing his place with the other Dark Knights in the Pantheon and plotted to overthrow them and become the sole occupant, claiming that he was the greatest (and worst) parallel of Bruce Wayne and The Joker, not to mention that not only did the other Knights die off, but he eventually became more independent and consciously chose his future actions based on what he most desired, Barbatos's death be damned. And eventually, he was successful; He Who Laughs became the sole occupant of his own position, though the other Dark Knights remained as his personal heralds, something that he was aiming for as he wanted to further reinforce his position as their leader and how he has freed himself from the restraints that were is group positioning in the Pantheon. Now, whatever he does in the Pantheon, He Who Laughs will decide, and he alone will execute it, anyone else be damned.
    • A notable thing about He Who Laughs is his possession of a special sort of material know as Nth Metal, which is Thanagarian in origin and allows for a great host of abilities, namely augmented strength, heightened vitality, negation towards gravity and magic, cosmic awareness, and unorthodox traveling such as through time, summoning, and through dimensions. Though Nth Metal is also one of the only materials that can cause significant harm towards the Dark Knights, He Who Laughs included. While he is wary of those who possess similar weaponry as he doesnote , he similarly doesn't mind a fight either because, in his point of view, he's already got things planned out in advance.
  • The Batman Who Laughs is exactly as he is envisioned by others as; a Batman who is twisted to become like The Joker and possessing much of the traits embodied by those two; a genius intellect who is always prepared, a master strategist, and in peak-human physique, yet is mentally warped to a psychotic degree and has an addictive compulsion for killing, crushing the hopes and expectations of others, playing mind-games, and wanton annihilation. However, there is a massive twist; he doesn't desire anything regarding The Dark Knight or The Clown Prince of Crime, but something greater, something grander, and that those two are meant to be mere squabbles at the end of the day. However, Batman and The Joker have repeatedly battled against He Who Laughs and have established a unique enmity that neither of the two has previously gone through. It's bad enough that He Who Laughs desires destruction on a cosmic scale, but to be so bad that two infamous arch-enemies of one another have to join forces just to battle against him certainly warrants how dangerous He Who Laughs really is. He became one of the most terrifying and feared beings in the entire Pantheon; even high-profile villains, The Joker included, either want nothing to do with him or simply want him gone from the Pantheon as soon as possible. Not that this actually bothers He Who Laughs one bit, in fact, he absolutely revels in his infamy and depravity and affirms that he's going to have to keep his reputation that way, as well as coming up with a new array of plans and expectations now that he is a probably a permanent residence of a realm that he has not known of in the past.
  • His compulsive addiction towards the concept of meaningless as well as wanting to snuff out any sense of optimism earned him a fan in Junko Enoshima, who was borderline-inspired to learn about the capabilities of He Who Laughs. While he saw Junko as smaller-scaled, he thinks she has potential if she was to increase her scope in spreading despair. She took his critique by heart and has dedicated herself to making her Pantheonic Version of the Killing Game even more terrifying and hopeless than it already was. He Who Laughs has since respected her dedication, and has attended the development of her upcoming project to check up on what can be added that would entice him. That, and he doesn't mind Junko herself falling into despair. She certainly enjoys the misery herself after all.
    • Makoto Naegi had his suspicions towards Junko held ever since she arrived in the Pantheon, given that he himself was a former participant of the Killing Game and he wants to stop any future attempts for another Killing Game to ever happen. However, despite his own unyielding hope, Makoto was taken aback by how depraved and insane He Who Laughs was and his own partnership with Junko made him even more worried, even more so when he learned how He Who Laughs was willing to destroy worlds to sate his own insane desires. He's since been making sure to further connect and inspire a sense of camaraderie and hope towards his friends, both in his world and his newfound ones in the Pantheon in the hopes that they will unite to oppose and defeat He Who Laughs someday. In contrast, he personally sees Makoto as an annoying brat regarding his optimism and belief in hope, though given what he's learned about him from Junko, he's made preparations on how Makoto and his friends will suffer and die, something which the students are doing their best to avert.
  • Of all the limited amount of allies He Who Laughs could find, none of them appealed to him more than The Plutonian, a being who was formerly the greatest superhero of his world... until one too many criticisms laternote , The Plutonian suddenly snapped, abandoned his heroic guise and completely remade himself into a demented, crazed figure who quickly proved himself to be a figurative abomination, who wanted to instill fear and terror on the populace and to validate his position as the most powerful figure in the world, later extending that to the cosmos. He Who Laughs was very quick in commending The Plutonian for choosing to pursue his interests without restraint and for embracing his inner dark side as he himself did. The Plutonian, in response, was eager to respect He Who Laughs for being one of the few to outright compliment the Fallen Hero for his actions. The two have since formed a strong partnership and have established themselves to be a twisted variation of Batman and Superman. Ever since then, many have been adamant about knowing about what the duo are planning and taking measures to ensure they don't succeed with their goals. That, and making sure that He Who Laughs and The Plutonian don't realize the full extent of their own powers.
  • His habits of destroying universes have caught the attention and concern of even deities, such as Beerus and Raiden. Both of them want to keep tabs regarding He Who Laughs and plan to stop him from furthering his actions too much in the Pantheon. Beerus, a God of Destruction himself, worries about what He Who Laughs can do as The Darkest Knight, thinking that him learning about and wanting to be as strong as Zeno is something that he would likely gun for. Whis himself has prepared for the occasion this happens, acknowledging the seriousness of the threat He Who Laughs represented. Raiden, being a defender of reams, particularly Earthrealm, has wasted no time in condemning He Who Laughs and is more than ready with his allies to fight and oppose him. Liu Kang, having taken up Raiden's responsibilities as a God, is more than up to the task for subduing He Who Laughs, though the latter insists that they are only delaying their own inevitable fates.
  • His destructive and nihilistic desires were a common thought he shared with Thanos. However, The Mad Titan himself thinks He Who Laughs is way too extreme in his objectives and general attitude. At the same time, Thanos doesn't want to admit that he may have pettier reasons to be against He Who Laughs, namely that his romantic desires with Death would be lost simply because the kills and destruction He Who Laughs causes would be far more preferable for affection than what The Mad Titan can offer. He Who Laughs couldn't care less about Thanos and his desires, thinking that he is too petty and small-time in his thoughts to really be considered worthy of his attention, a fact that Thanos didn't take very well at all. That fact that his own defeats against Darkseid isn't helping matters either and He Who Laughs is all too willing to milk this information for all it's worth. Though amusingly, he doesn't really care about being romantically sought after by Death, the very reason why Thanos has a grudge against He Who Laughs.
  • Zamasu was immediate in declaring He Who Laughs as an ultimate reason why humanity is a scourge that needs to be cleansed from existence, further extending his misanthropic tirade to the Dark Multiverse to further justify his radical opposition towards mortalkind, his resentment towards the "lazy gods" and his contempt towards the corrupted Bruce Wayne. This did attract his attention, but rather than fight against him, He Who Laughs opted for something more humiliating for the Fallen Kai. He approached Zamasu for a… "pep-talk" which was actually about deconstructing the Kai's viewpoints, immature opposition, his psychopathy, how he was more-or-less a mortal, and his grand hypocrisy about how mortalkind is a vile scourge upon all life when Zamasu himself is exactly that. Zamasu was so broken down by what He Who Laughs had established that he nearly converted into Infinite Zamasu, which the fallen Batman had anticipated, though disappointment followed when Zamasu was subdued by a group of heroes who were alerted to the simple idea that He Who Laughs and Zamasu were to have a talk. Whatever is the case, Zamasu has since held a deep-seated loathing towards He Who Laughs and wants him destroyed the next time they meet. He Who Laughs, on the other hand, is preparing for another Breaking Speech to prepare for another occasion regarding Infinite Zamasu.
  • Seeing as Barbatos was still intact, the Dark God attempted to persuade He Who Laughs to rejoin him and conquer the Pantheon together, but the corrupted Bruce Wayne ended up refusing the offer, stating that ever since Barbatos and the other Dark Knights died, he went solo and he's ended up enjoying being on his own and having full control without a superior instead, leaving Barbatos disappointed. Though the Dark God would soon learn about how He Who Laughs would go on to seize godly power of his own and kill Perpetua, which made him realize that trying to recruit He Who Laughs would be too risky a suggestion at this point. And speaking of Perpetua, she hasn't gotten over her defeat and death and has since dedicated herself to one day kill off He Who Laughs in the Pantheon and reaffirm her position as a credible deity with enough influence and control. That, and she's been getting mocked by He Who Laughs over her loss.
  • The idea of a composite individual based on Batman and The Joker wasn't exclusive to He Who Laughs, nor was he even the first one. This concept led him to a mass murderer known only as Nemesis, who was delighted to learn about someone who may have been even more deranged than The Joker, and upon learning of the corrupted Dark Knight's feats, Nemesis felt inspired enough to not only expand his killing spree but to also carve out an ideal based on himself and spread it to others, hoping that it could unleash a legion of like-minded mass-killers like himself. He Who Laughs appreciates Nemesis's conviction and urges him to not only act on his most vicious impulses but to enlarge it to the extent where its legacy would be felt by everyone. As if Batman is further shaken by the idea of He Who Laughs and Nemesis having a partnership, those who have personally faced off against them, particularly cops and law enforcement officers and upholders are quickly trying to prepare for what's to come from the two of them.
  • Al Simmons has battled several deranged beings, but even he comes to admit that He Who Laughs is easily among those that he can easily call a true demon, whether he is one or not. The corrupted Dark Knight ended up taking this as a compliment and giddily chose to mock Spawn's misfortunes in life as well as mocking him that he will never see his beloved Wanda again, given that The Violator had killed her. Naturally, this infuriated Spawn enough that the two fight against one another every so often. Spawn has also committed himself to make sure He Who Laughs doesn't find a way to become The Darkest Knight again; he's had years of experience battling supposedly omnipotent beings and being reminded by the darkest side of one's character, which Spawn was all too familiar with. On a lighter note, it's helped Spawn and Batman to affirm and make their partnership stronger than it was, even if their preferences and differences clash every so often, but they'll waste no time in devising a way to take on He Who Laughs.
  • Frank Castle, The Punisher, sees He Who Laughs as the main reason why The Joker should have been killed off the moment he marked his presence and uses his existence as a form of criticism towards Batman, who otherwise thinks that he is but another version of himself from the Dark Multiverse that had more success and came closest to achieving his own goals. He Who Laughs thinks Frank is childish, immature, and too small-minded, stating that killing criminals out of retribution for the death of his family is boring, not to mention he uses this as a way to compare The Punisher to Batman, something that neither appreciates as they believe their differences far outweigh their similarities. That said, Batman and The Punisher agree on an alliance against He Who Laughs, in spite of their tense working relationship after He Who Laughs once lured the latter into a trap by mocking his family and his suffering and getting nearly killed for it, were it not for a timely intervention from Batman himself.
    • On another note, The Punisher reminded He Who Laughs of The Grim Knight, a version of Bruce Wayne who, instead of being too traumatized to do anything for a while after seeing his parents gunned down in a robbery, decided to immediately seize the opportunity to kill Joe Chill and go on to become a crazed Gun Nut using his weaponry and resources to instill Gotham City into a personalized police state. Frank was not amused to learn about this information and He Who Laughs taunted him that with the way he's acting, in and out of the Pantheon, he may as well go all out in falling into his darkest desires. It traumatized Frank for a while, though some of his friends and even Batman have opted to help him recover. It's one of the few moments where Frank and Bruce have respected each other, though the former's conviction of killing He Who Laughs hasn't changed.
  • Madoka Kaname had headed about the Dark Multiverse and He Who Laughs, but she wasn't prepared for the occasion that they would meet, which is what happened when the latter quickly learned about The Pantheonic Rebellion, Madoka's position as a Hope Bringer, and her sudden depowerment and sought to visit her for "therapy". Madoka was already wary of He Who Laughs and tried to avoid presence, but his own persistence caught up. He began his "therapy session" by calling out her perceived weaknesses and then humiliating her with whatever failures he could have come up with, as well as forcing his nihilistic beliefs into Madoka's psyche, intending to break the girl into a mentally irreparable mess and permanently stunt her desire to help others and be happy. For a moment, it worked, with Madoka so badly shocked that she sobbed in despair seemingly without end, though He Who Laughs sound found himself attacked by Guts, a wandering mercenary and a good friend to Madoka. Annoyed, He Who Laughs attacked Guts in response and landed a cheap shot to the Black Swordsman before fleeing off elsewhere.
    • This event got the Magical Girl Sisterhood to label He Who Laughs as a dire threat that needed to be neutralized as soon as possible. While Madoka managed to recover, He Who Laughs simply proclaimed that he'll do his stint again. He knew that his actions wouldn't have turned Madoka into Kriemhild Gretchen as she wasn't a Magical Girl back then, he only did it to entertain himself, but hearing that Madoka having gotten a fraction of her powers back has further caught the fallen Batman's attention. He's already become a huge red alert towards the Puella Magi as they think he has a better chance of turning them into Witches than anyone else could, a fact that He Who Laughs takes utmost pride in and is more than willing to do it. The Puella Magi Magical Girls are afraid of the fallen Dark Knight and prefer to put as much distance as they can, but will fight if it's necessary, and he's going to make sure he does just that to get a better chance of turning the girls into witches. Madoka has since made a vow to stop He Who Laughs with everything she has at the moment, whereas while he gets irritated by Madoka's sweet and loving nature, he doesn't want a repeat of what happened to him when Wonder Woman defeated him, especially considering that the Princess of Themyscira has similar personality traits as Madoka herself and he wants to ensure Madoka doesn't get to kill him, even if the chances are slim.
    • On a similar note, he has found himself opposed by Usagi Tsukino and her Sailor Guardians due to his absolute insanity and goals, and he’s begun preparing for them as he knows future encounters are inevitable. More frightening is his morbid curiosity in what Death Phantom did to Chibiusa, and seeks to repeat what he did, but worse. By worse, it means that he seeks to make it irreversible, and the Sailor Guardians were absolutely horrified to learn about these plans. Thankfully, he and Wiseman haven’t come into contact, and they hope it’ll remain that way.
  • Whether He Who Laughs can be called a clown is debatable, but it hasn't changed the fact that he keeps a decent relationship with malicious clown-like beings as their desire a similar hobby and goal above all else. He enjoys the company of Kefka Palazzo first and foremost, given that he aimed and succeeded to destroy the world and become a god, something which He Who Laughs also reciprocated in. They also agree in their beliefs that life is meaningless, though He Who Laughs thinks his beliefs have expanded to wanting to enforce suffering and nihilism to the world, a prospect that Kefka similarly found interesting. They've since been working together for a common goal, as well as attempting to regain their ultimate transformations back, seeing as they'll be needing it to further their plans and to destroy their enemies with glee.
    • Of course, this hasn't gone unnoticed by The Joker, who has increasingly gotten angry that some of his allies are leaving him to join, whom The Joker thinks is, an imposter. Given how Kefka suddenly left The Joker, he doesn't feel happy that one of his favorite "buddies" in the Pantheon is no longer around, plus he's aware that He Who Laughs may as well backstab and kill Kefka at some point in case he's no longer needed. The Violator equally likes both, but admits that he doesn't want He Who Laughs to take over Hell or the Hall of Demons for one thing, and Sweet Tooth simply wants to mind his own business and He Who Laughs to get off of his presence or else he'll be gutting him to shreds, a sentiment that he found ridiculously funny.
    • Speaking of Kefka, He Who Laughs found further opposition from a collective of warriors from The World of Balance, who were distressed and disturbed to see just how similar He Who Laughs and Kefka were, let alone the fact that they were in an alliance. Terra Branford is the most concerned of the lot, which ended up being ironic as He Who Laughs also expressed some interest in her due to Terra's nature of being an Esper. The group has made sure to protect the Pantheon as if it were a second home to them and are ensuring that the Who Laughs doesn't destroy it, though their battles concern on him wanting to capture and sway Terra into his side as a way to spite her friends, desire, and her reputation. All of which Kefka has witnessed with a mix of enjoyment and humor out of the situation that has been bought about by it.
  • As a former heroic figure who turned to darkness, one can say that he bears some sort of homage to Anakin Skywalker when he became Darth Vader. However, unlike the Sith Lord, He Who Laughs never repented for his actions and took immeasurable pride out of it. Anakin feels rather disturbed whenever he glances towards the evil Batman; he can certainly see a part of himself, namely what if he didn't regret what he did and remained swayed to the Dark Side until his death. He Who Laughs also understood the reference, although he believes that Vader is missing out in the grand scheme of things after turning back to the Light Side. Anakin only wishes to cut down He Who Laughs, not only seeing him as a pure evil reflection upon himself but of the destructive and corruptive capabilities that he is capable of.
    • On the contrary, He Who Laughs finds some kind of appreciation from Emperor Palpatine, seeing as they're fellow practitioners of darkness and are adamant in that they believe nothing is holding them back from. What they desire most. He Who Laughs responds by stating that Palpatine is someone who is worth his time and can potentially align himself with at some point. That, and he personally wants to spread his own psychotic mania and destruction towards those native to Palpatine's realm to demonstrate how even those far away from his world aren't immune to the terror that he brings. Palpatine can appreciate that gesture, though even he's being wary of He Who Laughs' capabilities and is preparing for a failsafe in case the corrupted Dark Knight turns against him.
  • Finds himself getting along with several omnicidal figures, such as Killbas and another Joker who refers to himself as the Agent of Bad End to distinguish himself from the Clown Prince of Crime. Killbas was intrigued the scope of the Evil Batman's carnage and feels motivated to extend his massacre to all realms and universe's, though He Who Laughs thinks that Killbas should forgo killing himself and instead seek to inspire a legacy of sorts to further the corruption of worlds into twisted parodies based on Killbas himself. He hasn't said much about the matter and states that he is undecided for now. The Bad End Agent is fascinated by his shared trait of spoiling others' trust, beliefs, and hope. He seeks to learn from He Who Laughs about methods to further crush people's hopes, as well as a way to obtain even more than he already does, which the fallen Dark Knight is open to teach him on, so long as it manages to fulfill their own desires and goals.
    • That said, not every destructive being is able to be swayed to He Who Laughs' favorability. Evolto, himself a vile being who destroys realms, doesn't take well to the fact that Killbas is aligned with him and struggles to find any alliances against them, no thanks to his own unpopular reception in the Pantheon. Majin Buu has proven to be too simple-minded and He Who Laughs has repeatedly mocked Melkor for not being ambitious enough in his command and goals, mockingly stating that he's only motivated by jealousy and he doesn't bother to fight, instead of letting matters be tended by his Four Horsemen and his GUAE Army. Of course, the God of Evil wasn't amused by He Who Laughs' statement and seeks to beat him down to submission to prove his own superiority. His own rivalry against Buu is straightforward, though it's clearly more of enmity if Fat Buu is concerned.
  • Many have noted how He Who Laughs bears a very strong resemblance to Judge Death, right down from looks to their attitude, depravity, and goals. The two have met repeatedly and respect each others' commitment to their desires, but Death's allegiance to Zamasu, who absolutely detests He Who Laughs, has made the idea of a partnership pretty hard for them. They've instead resorted to playing a game on who gets to kill the most beings in the Pantheon and tally their count with blood, meat, and wreckage. At the very least, He Who Laughs appreciates how Judge Death mocks the justice system and how he sentences others just to fit in with his desires to cause wanton massacres and destruction, while Judge Death sees the corrupted Batman and his feats as a way to up his ante and to further his desire to sentence all life to death. It's an intense rivalry, but neither of them holds much animosity with one another, but rather see it as the most appropriate sporting competition they could come up as far as their insanely twisted minds could conjure up.
  • Alongside the Dark Knights, He who Laughs also leads a pack of Jokerized Robins into his services and battles. Given that many of them were children whom he took in and forcibly brainwashed them into rabid beasts, he's become feared by both the Houses of Childhood and Adolescence and Family and Relatives. To make matters worse, one of his plans is to lead a takeover of those houses and convert whatever children he could find there into Jokerized Robins for his use. Given that one of the Robins he Jokerized happens to be his universe's version of Damian Wayne, the Earth 1 Version is incredibly peeved out by this and makes sure to always be with help in case He Who Laughs approaches him. That said, Damian did kill his Jokerized counterpart, though He Who Laughs is willing to replace him with Earth 1 Damian mainly to spite his father. He already has a lieutenant in a younger Dark Multiverse version of himself known as the Robin King at this point, so He Who Laughs doesn't need a replacement.
  • His depravity earned the respect of Molag Bal, a Deadric Prince who represented vice and the embodiment of evil in his home realm. He Who Laughs was intrigued to learn about what the King of Rape had to offer and admitted that he saw Coldharbour as an interesting place to visit, though he told Molag Bal to be more proactive in his villainy and provide more "entertainment" in Coldharbour, which the Daedra claimed that he'll be planning something like that in some time. While he has a mixed opinion towards the GUAE due to Melkor, he also admits that he respects Griffith and Johan Liebert as their heinous acts are, in his words, a very well-done joke towards life and everyone in it. Johan is one of the few beings who isn't afraid of He Who Laughs, a trait that actually earned some respect from the corrupted Bruce Wayne and misses the fact that he could be a great ally. Griffith, on the other hand, expresses some confusion towards He Who Laughs due to his maniacal and insane nature and his constant desire for destruction, but he and the Godhand admit to appreciating his determination and the lengths he would go for to achieve his goals. That, and the Godhand see He Who Laughs as a seminal example of one who is willing to sacrifice everything they hold dear to pursue what they desire most.
  • Of course, He Who Laughs would end up meeting with other dark counterparts and doppelgangers of other heroes and he was interested to see just how well did they represent the opposite of their original selves. The corrupted Batman found Vanitas, an entity created by the forced extraction of the darkness of one's heart, namely a young Keyblade wielder named Ventus, to be someone whom he liked as Vanitas and he had a knack of causing destruction together and were content with their villainous nature. Vanitas respects He Who Laughs's intellectual planning skills and seeks to learn from this as a means to aid with his future attempts in attacking the Pantheon. He also found some kind of relatability with Lord Drakkon, an evil version of Tommy Oliver who was hellbent on causing misery as well as killing off whatever alternate version of himself he stumbled across. The evil Dark Knight and the fallen Sixth Ranger have agreed on a partnership, if mainly because they secretly desire to be the most notable fiend in the Pantheon and want to bide their time. Of course, the thought of one of the two betraying each other did not go lost on anyone, themselves included, but for now, they've been silent on the matter.
    • Strangely enough, to him at least, he didn't appreciate Jeanne D' Arc Alter not only approving of his actions but actively defying him and choosing to value her loyalty towards the Master of Chaldea and her feelings towards Jeanne D' Arc above wanting anything to do with the corrupted Bruce Wayne. This did tick off He Who Laughs to an extent, struggling to learn why a dark doppelganger would want to still not be bad, and reacts to this news by intending to attack her master and Jeanne and subject them to breaking their spirits and coldly torturing them out of spite. As a result, both dark counterparts end up clashing against one another frequently, with Jeanne herself coming to oppose He Who Laughs for his unrepentant evil and wanting to continue on with his acts, though she also wants to find a way to absolve and atone the evil Batman, a notion that he mocks and berates Jeanne for, not that she is fazed by it.
    • The "Ultimate" Reed Richards sees He Who Laughs as a fascinating specimen and seeks to learn more about him, given that the two have a common connection of them being twisted, evil alternate versions of a renowned hero. However, He Who Laughs found The Maker's extreme pursuit of science to be boring in his point of view and saw that working with him would be a slog for him as "Ultimate" Reed would rather prioritize creating a utopia of "advanced humans", something which the twisted Dark Knight quickly saw as "complete nonsense" as he also swiftly learned that The Maker was more motivated by a God-Complex than any true desire to help anyone. Though that said, the two were interested in a special element that each other held possession of; Nth Metal and ISO-8, which was owned by He Who Laughs and Ultimate Reed respectively. In an act of pragmatism, both agreed to share a fraction of their own exclusive elements with one another, seeing as they were curious that the items could potentially enhance their quests, and the two counterparts have often worked with one another at points to further their own agendas.

  • 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.

    Thaal Sinestro 
In Blackest day, in Brightest night,

Beware your fears made into light.

Let those who try to stop what's right

Burn like my power—Sinestro's might!

Thaal Sinestro, God of Villainous Predecessors to the Hero

  • Portfolio: Well-Intentioned Extremist, Human Aliens, Utopia Justifies the Means, Anti-Villain, Magnificent Bastard, Crazy-Prepared, Feared Beings, Left-Handed Villains, Even Evil Has Loved Ones, Family Revelations, Real Men Are Pink
  • Domains: Fear, Ambiguity, Order, Tyranny, Extremism
  • 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, Medivh, Doomguy, Fiddlesticks, Diablo, Freddy Krueger, 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 Black
  • 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 universe.
    • 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."
