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.

Tropes:

  • Affably Evil: Some of the villains are quite civil in their dealings with each other.
  • Anachronism Stew: Maleficent seems to know about both Star Wars and WWII.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: Kamen Rider Eternal and the Shocker Rider during the end of the Darker than Black challenge against PANDORA's Combat Cyborg Doll Champ via Double Rider Kick.
  • Beam-O-War: Daido vs. the Fake Brainiac.
  • 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.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Done to Zod during the Viking challenge.
  • 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...though the fact that he's simply too vain to realize how outmatched he is by his opponents in just about all respects can't be discounted either.

  • Elite Mook: When the Shocker Rider explained his origins.
  • 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.
    • Speaking of Daido, part of the reason why he'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 member's of Fate's harem to do this to Daido, but Shirabe interfered and told Koyomi to spare Daido.
  • Ham-to-Ham Combat: Of course.
  • Hijacked by Ganon: Darksied winds up being the final boss in the Justice League challenge.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: Shang Tsung vs. Azula in the DC universe.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: Daido vs. Koyomi. Which ended in a Curb-Stomp Battle with Koyomi winning.
  • Literary Allusion Title: to Wagner's composition.

  • 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."
  • Mutual Kill: How Doom and Megatron finished the Viking Challenge.
  • My Sensors Indicate You Want to Tap That: Inverted. One of the Daleks scans Azula and tells her that she hasn't slept with Harry, while everyone else thinks they did.
  • Name's the Same: Azula finds this out the hard way.
  • No-Sell: Darkseid.
  • Only Sane Man: Bolas.
  • 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.
  • Sailor Earth: Much like the other Nomads, however you pick a Roman Numeral and a color.
  • Shout-Out: The Shocker Rider explaining the insignia of SHOCKER with the old and new.
  • Superweapon Surprise: What Boyicht and the Goblins see of the Overlords, being superweapons for the elves.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Fate's reaction to Zod's Moral Event Horizon. The ensuing fight resulted in him being Put on a Bus by the Lifemaker.
  • Villain Episode
  • Villains Blend in Better: Total aversion.
  • We ARE Struggling Together: the villains simply can't stop fighting among themselves.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Most of the villains see themselves as this.
  • 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.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: Mai Kashiwagi in the Darker than Black challenge in fighting against the Overlords. She was defeated by Zod and Megatron. See below for how...
  • 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 (tired from a fight with a Dalek) Werewolves' mouth. Guess what happens.
