Roleplay / Twilight Of The Gods

Go To

Twilight of the Gods is the second installment in the Chronicles of the Gods series.

Although it begins earlier than AGOG, the two have a shared timeframe and crossed over once. Unlike the original A Game of Gods, however, Twilight is villain-exclusive, and has characters that are, on the whole, more powerful. However, due to troubles with the players, the game didn't have a proper conclusion. The story of the Overlords does continue in Eclipse of the Gods, although the ending of the original Twilight will likely always remain a mystery.

Twilight of the Gods contains examples of:

  • Break the Haughty: Daido discovering that he is playing with the big boys now, and getting his ass handed to by a catgirl, has resulted in Daido not being as egotistic in Eclipse.
  • Cruel Mercy: Shirabe suggests this to Koyomi after she defeats Daido, not knowing that he was already broken.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • The Overlords versus PANDORA security forces in the Darker than Black challenge. The PANDORA forces were defeated despite having some of the best tech and equipment in their world- although given that their technology isn't particularly advanced in comparison to the real world, that's not saying much.

    • Daido vs. Any Overlord and their minion, given that his large ego is what leads to his defeat, as well as his I Work Alone aspect. He's simply too vain to realize how outmatched he is by his opponents in just about all respects.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • Most of the villains get to share their disgust at WWII and 9/11. Except for Daido, who said he would do 9/11 differently if he called the shots (as in turn everyone into zombies) and it could be implied that he would do the same for WWII.
    • Dr. Doom hates Fascism for what they did in WWII and questioned the Shocker Rider carefully on the insignia he had on his gloves.
    • Part of the reason why Daido's the Butt-Monkey is that he's a terrorist, which most of the Overlords don't seem to like, especially Koyomi.
    • Shang Tsung happens to find vivisection and people who kill their children disgusting. He also hates suicide bombers and brainwashers.

  • Finish Him!: Both The Warden and Pete ask two members of Fate's harem to do this to Daido, but Shirabe interfered and told Koyomi to spare Daido.
  • Ludicrous Gibs: Caused by Shang Tsung's abuse of the Brutality in Metropolis. It even gets lampshaded.
    "The janitor will not be happy when he gets back."
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: Done by Shocker Rider during his fight with the fake Brianiac.
    Shocker Rider: "I. AM. AN. ELITE!"
  • Put on a Bus: Fate and his harem. The Lifemaker wanted them to focus on more important things than play some games.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Or in this case, villain. Fate calls out Zod for using Azula to kill his son. The ensuing intervention from both The Nomads and The Lifemaker resulted in one of them to make a challenge where the Overlords have to act as superheroes.
  • Your Head Asplode:
    • In the Darker than Black challenge after Megatron squishes the head of the defeated fire Contractor Mai Kashiwagi. This earns some disgust from Maleficent and their Contractor allies.
    • Norman Osborn shoves a Pumpkin Bomb into a Werewolves' mouth. Guess what happens.
