|“||Oh, you can't be serious. How many times do I have to bash you're head in to get this through to you: YOU LOST. I have the Infinity Stone. I offered you mercy, and yet you DENIED it, just so you and you're little friends could be the heroes, just so you could fill that void in you're pointless lives with the belief that people will adore you. The belief that people will turn to you, that they love you. Why so NAIVE?! These people NEED you, simply so they can trade you're lives for their own. You're like toys to them. They want that feeling of control over their lives that I have come to gain. They crave it. So they call on you to solve their problems. You make them feel powerful. You TRICK them into thinking that their actions matter. And what then? They dispose of you, all of you, swiftly and efficiently. To them you'll always be FREAKS. Like me. And when I break the barrier and claim the Chaos Stones as my own, they too will forget who you are. Just like everyone else...||„|
|~ Aka Manah|
|“||It...it amuses me, really. Your blind fanaticism. Your obsession with these "people" you were born to protect. All you do is go on and on over the same BULLSHIT on every occasion you can find. This is a time of change. A time of redemption. You will all feel EXACTLY what we felt every moment of our pathetic lives. Every waking minute of my existence was a living hell...I couldn't even end it. I was trapped. Binded to this Omniverse. Now, the Omniverse relies solely on me. Everything is finally falling into place...and you know what? I think I'll stick around for a while. My death is inevitable - the Great One saw it himself. On it's dying breath, the Omniverse will come to each of us, a punishment in hand. It was a fun ride getting to where we are. Too many sacrifices. Too many lives lost. I'll miss you all. I really will. So on MY dying breath, I think I'll take you all with me. Actually, I'm sure I will.||„|
|~ Manah's most recognized monologue|
|“||While everything falls into chaos, he appears, posing as a savior. The people, hungry for violence, follow him. He murders them all. His empire grows. And it will continue to grow, until only he and Nekrozoth hold power over our Omniverse. And then...they'll destroy all of it.||„|
|~ The Ancient One describing Aka Manah|
|“||Wrath is a twist path to salvation.||„|
The Nameless Evil, known as Aka Manah, is a powerful and omnipresent demon and one of the main antagonists of Multiversal Legends alongside Nekrozoth and Grandmaster Chaos. He is said to be the physical personification of evil intentions, evil thinking, and evil purpose and controls a massive empire spanning throughout the entire Omniverse. He is also the only known being able to enter all 89,979,543 multiverses and is able to enter thousands of them at the same time. Unlike his master, Ahriman, Aka Manah is able to enter all bodies, allowing him to consume their abilities and become immensely powerful, giving him the strength to face up against the likes of Zalgo, Thanos, Darkseid, Cell, and Malroc. He is almost always seen carrying around a puppet, symbolizing the way he exploits and uses those around him.
He is the unseen villain for a majority of the seasons and makes cameo appearances in many spin-offs, including Legends of the Omniverse (his symbol is seen in the background of episode nine) and The Flame, in which he serves as the overarching main antagonist, he also appears as the Overarching antagonist of The Travellers (Being behind the main villain of the show known as Nemesis). He is incredibly sadistic and hateful, his destructive personality only being matched by Nekrozoth. His only weakness throughout the entire series is his arrogance and ability to feel empathy, along with any divine weapons capable of physically harming him.
Manah is portrayed throughout the franchise as an "emotionally unstable sadist" with infinite control over the human soul and mind. He is presented as one who takes sheer joy in tormenting those around him, fueled by his fanatic desires to decimate sentient life in his Multi-Universe. Aka is introduced in the Gotham Arc as the greater-scope villain, the Invasion Arc as the main antagonist, the Stranded Runners Arc as the true main antagonist, and the main antagonist of the Finale, where he meets his initial downfall at the hands of the Champions. He continues to appear as a main antagonist in the COTM storyline before his final defeat in Phase Six. Manah is resurrected twice more, once as the Masked/Monstrus, and the second as Kaloth the Ultimate Life Form.
Aka Manah possesses the ability to travel between reality and the spirit world almost fluently, giving him near-complete control over the humanoid soul, mind, and conscience. Despite having a human-like mental state, Manah is in a position above godly. Manah, in reality, is a personification of The Harbringer's inner anger, frustrations, and dark desires personified into a single entity known as The Nameless Evil.
Manah is responsible for an innumerable number of deaths and atrocities across the Omniverse, including the Omniversal Butchering, the Shattering of Souls, the Omniversal Wars, Massacre at the Earth Colonies, William Braxxon's uprising to power, and the killings of Vohu Manah, Steppenwolf, Darkseid, Happy Smilestone, Brian Irons, Scarlet King, Moloch, Vendetta Mimelin, the entirety of the Fifth Realm's human populus, and his brother, Dahaka.
He is the main antagonist of Phase One (along with Malroc and Artillery), the supporting antagonist of Phase Two, a minor antagonist in Phases Three through Four, and the true main antagonist of Phase Five. He later merges with Nekrozoth into Kaloth, the Ultimate Life Form and takes on the role of true main antagonist for the rest of the series until his inevitable death at Phase Ten. His character, heavily inspired by Persian Mythology, was created by HeresJosh.

Before the beginning of time, before creation, before anything that was ever created, there was a race of omnipotent beings known as the Prime Alphas, the polar opposites of yet another godly race, the Prime Omegas, which fell under the leadership of Endgame and Nekrozoth. In the years of dispute that followed, the Prime Alphas prevailed over their counterparts and created the universe, along with reality and the basic boundaries of logic. Along with this came humans, a group of naive and well-meaning creatures the Alphas had created. Seeing them as threats to his authority, Nekrozoth corrupted the humans as his brother, Artillery, supplied them with weapons of destruction. In the years that followed, two ideas began circulating throughout humanity: chaos and tyranny.
Ahriman, a powerful Omega who presided over the realm the humans were battling, struck a deal with Nekrozoth, giving him control of the region. In order to keep the humans in check, he merged the ideas of chaos and tyranny, giving them a personified form and creating The Nameless Evil. Although originally content with his position, Evil soon grew tired of watching humanity prosper and sought to conquer more territory to add to his name. He broke away from Ahriman's control, renaming himself Aka Manah, and retreated into the depths of the know Omniverse.
As he traveled from different dimensions, he discovered another new concept: families. Manah grew envious of those who had mothers and siblings to love and protect him. He traveled dimensions in hopes of finding that same affection. His attempts proved to be in vain, as both gods and mortals prejudged and abandoned Manah. Slowly, he began to unravel and show his true colors. Betrayed, cold, and alone, Manah abandoned the entire concept of love and anything that came with it. He revisited each universe that had abandoned him and created chaos. Under Manah's influence, stray pets would track down their previous owners and slaughter them with incredible speed and power, only to transform into the owners and take on their lives. Manah made sure to exclude love from their lives but made them content with friendships due to his appreciation for animals.
One by one, authoritarian figures in the dimensions withered. Manah's power began growing, and he began to unlock abilities that Ahriman had kept hidden from him. His most shocking discovery came when he realized he could leave his universe, that there was an infinite amount of them to conquer and torment. And outside of his dimension was a sanctioned citadel, hidden between reality and spirit. Manah tapped into this dimension and was confronted by the citadel guards, whom he easily killed. Buried twenty miles under the main building, Manah discovered one of the six Chaos Stones and stole it, escaping to Oblivion for refuge. It was there he wiped out sixteen legions of attacking daemons utilizing the Stones power. His obsession with the Stone grew as he traveled across the Omniverse, finding those who abandoned him, one by one. His obsession caught the eyes of many Alphas, one of which was Deus, the Alpha of Creation.
Creation of War
With a Chaos Stone in his possession, Manah posed as an immediate threat to Deus, whose brother (Nekrozoth) had also wielded one and nearly killed trillions. A primal creature known by the Prime Alphas as the Primion was sent by Deus to a region known as Gaus, where it intercepted Manah. Despite his new surge of power, Manah was eventually subdued and defeated by the Primion, who was given blessing by every Prime Alpha. The Chaos Stone was transferred to a sacred holding ground named the Cathedral of Justice, which also held four of the five other Chaos Stones, and Manah was brought before the Prime Alpha court. Cunning as always, Manah telepathically sensed their hostilities towards the Omegas, and manipulated them into believing the Prime Omegas, mainly Endgame, had ordered him to do so.
Deus, attempting to keep peace between the two races, kept Manah prisoner. Meanwhile, Nekrozoth staged the entire decimation of a realm, steering the blame towards a splinter group of Prime Alphas, led by Deus himself. As a result of Nekrozoth and Manah's actions, a new concept was born: organized warfare. During the many massacres that followed, Manah managed to escape and abscond into the HECK realm, a clever move considering Alphas were unable to enter it. On the brink of death from his battles against the Primion, Manah decided on staging a final act of violence before his death. Manipulating two tribes of daemons, both native to the HECK realm, he created a series of brutal proxy wars between them. His wounds mysteriously fixated, leading Manah to learn he could gain power from the violence of others.
While in HECK, he also began recruiting native daemons as soldiers, contacting Artillery and convincing him to supply them weapons. The cycle continued for years before Manah finally heard rumors that the war between the Alphas and Omegas had ended. It was an ideal time for invasion.
Fueled with an unquenchable desire to rule and prosper, Manah left the HECK realm and led his army to Saakar, where they overthrow local officials and became the legal ruling body. When the humans fought back in an attempt to take back their homeland, Manah threatened to destroy their planet, a task which would be achievable thanks to his growing powers. World War 2 was raging on in Earth 616, which supplied Manah and his army with the strength they need to endure on their conquests. As his army moved and capture Xandar, another fierce rebellion broke out on Saakar, killing 500 daemon soldiers. Sticking to his word, Manah took a rather merciful approach, wiping out one-third of the human population. The resistance efforts quickly ceased after that, just as the daemons of HECK took over Xander.
To his shock, the steady stream of power aiding his army from Earth 616 halted. World War 2 had ended in allied victory, and rebuilding efforts were beginning. Enraged, Manah's daemons attacked 616. The attack was repelled by combined human efforts, but Manah saw the invasion as a victory, as it had sparked the Cold War and the battles that came with it. In a time span of six months, Manah's army had conquered seventeen realms, each one consisting of over seven dozen planets. The massacres that followed built up on Manah's unforgiving reputation. Tatooine, Sanghellios, Hellus, and the entire Andromeda Galaxy, adding Skrulls and Chituari to his ever-growing empire.
The last and bloodiest massacre of the First Omniversal Campaigns was located on Earth X-676, the home of the Umbrella Cooperation. Using his reality bending powers to manipulate the timelines, Manah changed the Umbrella leadership into one of his human "puppets", swearing the entire Cooperation into pledging loyalty to him and his forces, tracking down and exterminating small groups of resistance efforts. On the planet's second moon, he created a throne out of blood and began orchestrating the events leading up to Darth Sidious' take over of the Galactic Senate and the birth of the Scarlet King.
Alliance with Nekrozoth
Constant war was streaming through the Omniverse, feeding Manah's hunger for chaos. Two eons later, his empire roughly doubled, expanding through several universe along with the Orion Army. Unbeknownst to Manah, the human population was thriving in Earth 616 and Earth 0, giving him a challenge for power. Manipulating Steppenwolf, Darkseid's uncle, and Cell, the "ghost warrior", he brought an eternal war upon Earth 0. Hordes of parademons were unleashed, aimlessly slaughtering millions of soldiers. Nearly two billion humans died in Manah's greatest massacre, which will go on to be known as the Never-ending Hordes.
With each new conquest, Manah's power seemed to increase. He crossed the boundaries of space and time and evolved from a demon to an idea, thriving within the soul of every living being. It was also during his invasions of Earth that his actions were finally noticed by Nekrozoth. In an attempt to manipulate Manah, Nekrozoth seeks his support in the war against the Prime Alphas. Manah, in turn, began exploiting Nekrozoth through his deepest desires, mainly the desire to kill Deus and take over his position. Over the course of thousands of years, a trust began to grow between the two along with an alliance. The two agreed to each conquer half of the Omniverse before combining their halves and completely wiping out all life.
The cycle of chaos and enslavement continued up until the Advanced Era, when Manah and Nekrozoth heard of the Primions death at the hands of a traitorous Prime Alpha. Seeing this as an opportunity to spark war, Manah once again manipulated the timelines so that the border planets were never created, therefore erasing the one thing separating the Alphas and Omegas. Nekrozoth quickly gained leadership of the group and declared war on Deus and his follower along with an ill-conjured claim of treachery. The full force of Manah's army attacked the Alphas palace on Prime Moon, giving Nekrozoth's army enough time to prepare. To Deus' shock, his own temples were destroyed by the legions of daemons due to the withering spell Manah had cast during his imprisonment.
The Alphas dismantled, sending the cosmos into turmoil. After eons, Nekrozoth and Manah finally came into power of the Omniverse, temporarily stopping time. They invaded the Cathedral of Justice, taking the Chaos Stones before setting the building ablaze. Deus, along with the remaining Alphas, formed a rebellion against Nekrozoth's rule. Using this as a diversion, Manah destroyed the Lithiius Stars and rearranged them as a flaming pot, a symbol of his power. Using the power of the Chaos Stones, Nekrozoth and Aka Manah prepared for "the end of the beginning", an event in which they will merge the timelines and dimensions in order to annihilate them all.
Nekrozoth's quantum bombs had been delayed due to a rebel sabotage, thus forcing him to use one of the Chaos Stones to regenerate them. With only five Stones, Manah also had to delay his plans, giving the rebels time to retake Prime Moon. Manah and Nekrozoth sent the full force of their armies to counter the attack.
Many leaders of the Alphas were slain during the initial ambush, unable to defend themselves against Manah's legions of daemons. Using his remaining power, Deus fired an enormous pulse of energy, stalling Manah as the others retrieved the Eternal Flame (an eons-old artifact binded with ashes from the seventh Chaos Stone) from the burning Cathedral. Mere seconds after Deus' death, the Alphas returned and, harnessing the power of the Flame, trapped Manah in a cubical stone prison, along with decimating his entire army and anybody who has pledged allegiance to him under soul oath. Manah spent the next century trapped in an empty void as his empire slowly shrank and dismantled.
After 10,000 years, a sudden boost of negative energy throughout the Omniverse, known as The Shattering of Souls, dismantled Manah's prison long enough for him to escape, destroy the Eternal Flame, and kill his captors along with aligning himself with former co-conspirator William Braxxon. Restoring his empire, Manah seized the SCP Foundation and came into contact with a near omnipotent being called the Scarlet King and learned that the Chaos Stones were being held in a restored Cathedral of Justice, this one enforced by divine techniques, making it nearly impossible for Manah, Nekrozoth, Endgame, or any other undivine entity to enter. This being said, Manah took note of a possible solution to the issue: using the Infinity Stones to break the enchantment and give him access to their Omniversal counterparts.
The Infinity Stones were scattered throughout the Omniverse. The only known locations were Earth 0 (Soul Stone), Mobius (Power Stone), the Demiverse (Reality Stone), Yavin (Space Stone), and the Kingdom Hearts Universe (Time Stone). Setting his sights on Earth 0, home of the Soul Stone, Manah realized some kind of divine power was restricting his travel, originating from The Fifth Realm. Recruiting two Prime Omegas into is empire, Aka Manah invaded The Fifth Realm, nearly decimating the dimension's human population in the first day alone. His armies scattered and regrouped near Alerand, where Manah discovered that Ahriman had given life to another concept, justice, in the form of Vohu Manah. Although Vohu's powers nearly matched his rivals, Manah had also begun harnessing power from Oblivion, a method Nekrozoth had also used prior to his banishment to the HECK Realm. With this advantage alone, Aka Manah overpowered his younger brother and strangled him to death, ending the battle in his favor. He also sent an avatar to Earth to discuss an alliance with Malroc, which failed miserably. The last of Vohu Manah's armies fled to the outer regions of The Fifth Realm, where they were protected and looked after by Mithra, who later confronted Manah.
War for the Stones
In the conversation that followed, Aka Manah eventually agreed to let Mithra and the remaining soldiers live in The Fifth Realm peacefully on two terms: they would not interfere with Manah's plans and they would allow any of Manah's enemies into the Realm. Victory aside, Manah sent one of his generals, Xehanort, to retrieve the Time Stone. Concurrently, he and his personal legion of daemon soldiers traveled to Earth 666 in search of the Soul Stone, which was under the control of psychopathic criminal mastermind Happy Smilestone. After a brief confrontation, an enraged Manah tortures and brutally kills both Happy Smilestone and his girlfriend, Vendetta Mimelin. During the battle, the Soul Stone was secured by Darkseid.
Wars were fading from the Omniverse, along with Manah's powers. In order to sustain his constant need for violence, Manah possessed Darth Vader and slaughtered both the Emperor and Luke Skywalker, Vader's son, before taking Vader's life. In what would be known as the Omniversal Butchering, Aka Manah ordered the deaths of Ren Amamiya, Coriolanus Snow, Brian Irons, and many threats of Manah on worlds he has conquered. He also met with Darkseid's uncle, Steppenwolf, playing on his hopes of freedom from his nephew's orders in hopes he would kill him. To his shock, despite the circumstances, Steppenwolf remained loyal to his uncle. Manah and Artillery entered Darkseid's throne room later that day, mercilessly beating him before impaling the tyrant with a dark energy spike. The first Infinity Stone finally came under Manah's possession.
Aka Manah used the chaos that ensued after Darkseid's death to claim the Time Stone, which Xenahort had failed to accomplish. He tracked the Stone and found it near Earth 616 under the possession of Thanos. Six IMC cruisers under Aka Manah's control destroyed Thanos' ship, forcing him and his disciples to retreat to their home planet Titan, where Manah proceeds to kill Thanos' children, one by one, before turning his sights on Thanos himself. Although he is unable to kill the Mad Titan because of his connection to the Infinity Stones, Manah succeeds in recapturing the Time Stone. He also manages to reform the Cobalt Order in his own image, sending them out to decimate thousands of planets and spread his indisputable authority.
Invasion of Earth
Thanos was merely a distraction for Manah, delaying his main goal all along: a swift and chaotic invasion of Earth 616, the likeliest safeguard for the Universe Stone. Taking control of the live streams across the continents, Manah taunts Earth's citizens as his first invasion forces strike, along with possessing internet personality JazY and forcing him to commit suicide during a stream. As thousands of daemons and Chitauri soldiers reduce Earth's landmarks to rubble in search of the Stone, Manah begins drawing power from his main spiritual form and engages in a powerful psychic battle with the likes of Doctor Strange and The Ancient One. The advantages shifts between the two combatants until Manah, again manipulating the timelines, causes a brief rift in reality, so powerful it alerts even the mightiest cosmic beings, including Nekrozoth.
The rift creates the perfect diversion. As The Ancient One focuses here powers to close it before time and space crash, Doctor Strange is left to fight off the many waves of psychic power Manah sends his way. The telepathic battle comes to a stunning end when both Manah and Strange are forced to channel their energy through another living being. Strange chooses The Ancient One herself, channeling massive amounts of psychic power through her. Manah deviously follows suite, knowing the extreme amount of energy would kill her. Just as he had predicted, The Ancient One snaps due to the abnormally high amounts of telepathy she is forced to control and dies soon afterward. Strange, devastated, is quickly overpowered by Manah and forced to give him control over Earth 616 just after Manah's forces set fire to the Sanctum Sanctorum. Strange eventually finds Manah in a mirror dimension of a central park, feeding a few local deer. Manah states that he admired Strange's "density in the face of evil" and gives him a chance to live. Still bitter over The Ancient One's death, Strange attempts to attack Manah. A few energy pulses are exchanged before Manah shatters Doctor Strange's mind, instantly killing him.
One fact kept looming over Manah: Earth 0 still had free will. He had attempted to corrupt the planet during his brief time their, but Doctor Fate's emblem and direct connection to the gods gave him the upper hand. Acting out of paranoia alone, Aka Manah used the three Stones in his possession to detonate the Elder Sun and merged the DC and Marvel universes and allowing him to wipe both slates clean instantaneously at the first sign of resistance.
Steppenwolf was enraged by the Manah's actions, confronting him on the remains of Thanos' ship. Claiming that the Sun could have increased his physical strength to levels beyond comprehension, Steppenwolf charged Manah, only to be restrained by a group of his own parademons. Taking advantage like usual, Manah proceeded to drain Steppenwolf's life energy, a slow and painstakingly painful process usually reserved for Manah's worst offenders.
In a drastic turn of events, the civil war in Oblivion, Manah's direct source of power, abruptly ceased due to a treaty made between the daemons and monsters of the realm. Considering his options, Manah struck a deal with Zalgo, who created a gateway into the Demiverse. As his Chaotic Elite searched for the Stone, Manah began experimenting with a new form of energy: willpower. Witnessing the horrors of the Russian Sleep Experiment, Manah captured two of the scientists responsible for the experiments and a derange teenage boy named Jeffrey Woods, trapping them both in a pocket dimensions nicknamed "Lonely Island.)
The actions that follow put Manah's sadistic tendencies on full display as he separated the three and dragged them into the most painful moments of their past, watching and waiting to see who would break first. One of the scientists, a Ukrainian man named Valek Lovskinski took his life shortly after witnessing his daughter's torture-murder first hand. The second man, Vladimir Smirnov, was locked in the freeze room of a butcher shop for seemingly days on end as Manah haunted him, making his presence known a little more every day until finally showing himself to Vladimir and gibing the man into slitting his throat. Vladimir did so with a switch blade the next day.
Jefferey lasted the longest. Manah searched his memory and ordained Jeff to relive every shadow of his past, from his initial beating at the hands of bullies to his brother's death. Each day, Manah would try a little harder to break Jeff, only for his methods to fail every time. The experiment was ended when Jeff directly addressed Manah, hinting at his own telepathic ability. Fearing of what he could potentially do if freed, Manah appeared before Jeff and ripping him in half.
Jeff the Killer's death was only the beginning of violence between Manah's empire and the Champions. The Grandmaster, a Champion leader, was first to challenge Manah's rule. Two days after Jeffrey's death, The Grandmaster (assisted by Moloch, Legend, and Weaponry) led an army of reanimated child Proxies in an attack on one of Manah's major strongholds/torture chambers: Dismal Malace. The Cobalt Order obliterated the Proxies in mere minutes, taking The Grandmaster, Legend, and Weaponry prisoner.
Manah killed The Grandmaster first by snapping his neck as a power move on the other Champions. Jack was freed and sent to the Champions as to "spread the fire" of The Grandmaster's death. Legend was imprisoned and tortured by the Cobalt Order before being freed by a traitorous Zalgo, who also revived The Grandmaster. Completely aware of this, Manah watched from the shadows, emotionless, as members of both the Cobalt Order and Zalgo's army died by the thousands. The war with Zalgo was a brash mistake on Manah's part, one which he proceeds to pay dearly for.
Using Manah's war against Zalgo as a diversion, the Champion army, led by The Grandmaster and Legend. In a final attempt at taking control over the Demiverse, Manah attempted to persuade Weaponry into killing his leader. Jack saw through Manah's act, enraging the demon and making him bash Jack's skull into a nearby table. Manah also created a psychic hurricane, devastating the Champions and allowing him to escape with the Reality Stone while also igniting war against Zalgo. During his escape from the Demiverse, Manah learns that the Champions have allied themselves with Zalgo. Believing this alliance could end Manah's reign over the Omniverse instantly, he and his army entered the Pit and caught Zalgo's forces in a massive ambush. Manah met Zalgo near the center of the battlefield, taunting him and requesting that he thinks "before you end up like your family." Zalgo attacks and, although unable to defeat the vastly powerful Manah, was able to impale him. Manah sent a series of flaming tornadoes Zalgo's way, momentarily stunning him just as Manah impaled the Nezperdian Hivemind with a dark energy spike, ending the battle. He disappears into a portal soon afterwards, allowing his army to finish off the remainder of Zalgo's troops.
The Era of Manipulation
Manah's string of losses were cut short during his escape in the Ovoria Dimension, where he met Ridley. Approaching him with open arms, Manah posed as a deity who has taken mercy on Ridley and exploiting him to his desire. Even with his enormous healing factor, Manah was forced to seal himself off in a pocket dimension as he healed from his wounds. Since the weapon Zalgo impaled him with was divine, Manah also had to draw energy from his true spiritual form in order to stay alive. Manah spends the majority of the other conquests in his pocket dimension healing, only able to possess and telepathically communicate with people on the outside wold, leaving Lord Dominus in command of his many legions of daemons. He also comes into contact with his former ally, Nekrozoth, through the body of a Prime Omega. Even though Manah still held hostile feelings towards Nekrozoth, who he blames for not freeing him from the power of the Everlasting Flame, the two come to an eventual agreement: once Manah uses the power of the Infinity Stones to destroy the divine barrier, two of the Chaos Stones will fall into Nekrozoth's possession. In return. Nekrozoth would instantly heal his wounds.
Once again able to fight, Aka Manah travels to Mobius and hears of Dr. Ivo Robotnik, seeing him as a potential victim. He first appears to Robotnik outside one of his labaratories, gently petting a bird perched in his lap. Upon being spotted and questioned by the doctor, Manah gently presses his finger against the birds head, transferring a portion of his soul to the bird (and it's entire species.) The creatures transform into demon-like beasts and attack Robotnik, slowly pecking him to death, much to Manah's pleasure. With the threat of a potential competitor for the Infinity Stones dealt with, Manah turned his attention to Sonic, a divine being connected to the Power Stone. Sonic's escape during their first encounter was simply a minor setback for Manah, as he confronted the hedgehog again near Whte Acropolis. Sonic gibes Manah and attempts another escape, with a furious Manah chasing behind, slowly transforming into a demonic spider-like being. Manah's god-like powers eventually countered Sonic's speed, allowing Manah to trap him in a pocket dimension where he will be forced to room in a never ending forest until falling into insanity. The many attacks held by Sonic's allies didn't have a chance stopping Manah from retrieving the Power Stone.
Upon his return, Aka Manah was informed by one of his followers that Dominus had betrayed Manah's empire during a battle against the Champions and disappeared with the Universe Stone. Manah tracked Dominus down to a bunker in Outworld, where he was being sheltered by Kotal Khan. Effortlessly killing Dominus' guards, Manah savagely beat Dominus to near death, reclaiming the Universe Stone and vanishing without a trace.
In a concluding battle that would be remembered by the Omniverse for eons to come, Manah and his forces (drawing power from Grandmaster Chaos) viciously fought the alliance between the Champions and Thanos for the Space Stone. This time with support from Grandmaster Chaos' Chaotic Elites, Aka Manah ripped apart the little resistance shown by the Champions. The tide of the battle took a sudden turn when Kratos, the God of War, and skull ops mercenary Snake joined the fighting on the Champion's side. Manah is shocked to see how Snake, a mortal, was able to withstand his powerful psychokinetic attacks. Amidst the fighting, Kratos reveals to Manah that he and Snake have been sent by Zeus, who Manah has threatened with his many brutal conquests. In a stunning defeat, the Champions escape with both their lives and the Space Stone. Manah, for the first time in his eternal life, began to question his own beliefs of superiority.
The group's victory is short lived, as they are met on one of Yavin's moons by a vengeful Manah and the Chaotic Elites. Weakened and suffering from exhaustion, Manah took advantage of their inferiorities and momentarily possessed Legend, tricking Kratos into giving him the final Stone and allowing him to transcend into his final form. As the Chaotic Elite leave, seeing their duty as fulfilled, Manah reveals his true intentions: to wipe the Champions and everyone they've ever loved out of existence before breaking the barrier and wiping out all life once and for all. His incredible power gave him an unmeasurable advantage over the Champions, as Dare, Revenant, and Ticci Toby were immediately killed by a wave of telepathic energy. The remaining members fight fiercely and exhaust the demon before Thanos and The Grandmaster combine their energy and create a beam of divine energy, crippling him and forcing him to shed his final form. Extremely frail, Aka Manah arrogantly combines his many forms, along with his spirit, into one avatar in hopes of wiping out the Champions as revenge. Kratos distracts Manah with pulses of divine energy as Snake fires a bullet, soaked in divine water, into the demon's heart. Manah finally excepts defeat and slowly disintegrates into a spiral of ambers, which disappear into a portal above his head. The portal closes and the entire Omniverse is said to have took a breath of relief as The Nameless Evil meets his fate.
Using a combination of sorcery and dark energy, Nekrozoth managed to resurrect Manah, forcing the demon to pledge his undying loyalty to him. Nekrozoth also revealed his plans to control the Chaos Stones and use them to completely unhinge reality, toying with it's inhabitants before killing them all, assuming that Manah had similar plans in mind. In reality, Aka Manah had instead shifted his intentions from destroying the Omniverse to reshaping it in his own image to fill the chronic emptiness he was suffering from since his last battle. Still, Manah saw this as a way to collect the Chaos Stones, planning on betraying Nekrozoth himself.
Following Nekrozoth's instructions, Manah traveled to Olympus and preformed a series of torture-murders before finally reaching Kratos. Out pettiness alone, Aka Manah tormented him, even after he revealed the first Stone's location, before stripping him of his immortality and crushing his body with two nearby boulders. By entering Olympus, Manah had also unknowingly shifted the time lines ever so slightly. This, along with multiple other factors, would result in Chernobog's freedom from the Eternal Void. This also gave Nekrozoth the opportunity to invade Outworld in search of the second Chaos Stone.
The battle at Outworld ended in a swift victory for Nekrozoth as Artillery prepared to destroy the realm completely. Aka Manah stopped him, convincing him to move onto Netherrealm as he reshaped Outworld in his image. This event suddenly triggered Manah's long-lost desire to control and influence people under his authority. Reviving his former empire, Aka Manah tyrannically ruled over Outworld and it's inhabitants with an iron fist, waiting for Nekrozoth to make his next move and bring Manah ever-closer to killing the Anti-God himself.
Aka Manah had also made it his personal goal to torment and morally break Legend in spite for his last major defeat. Creating an all-seeing all-knowing eye (which would be later used as an insignia for the Illuminati) and placing it in the Heavens, allowing him to tempt and watch his subjects every minute of every day. Using his clairvoyant abilities, Aka Manah clawed his way into Legend's soul in an attempt to learn his true motivations. To Manah's revelation, Legend had no hidden desires. His only motivation was to protect his wife, Xayna. Aka Manah saw this and planned on using it to exploit Legend.
Two weeks after reentering the Omniverse, Manah once again entered into the Demiverse and trapped Xayna in a void of eternal torment while he strained Legend in his home, hinting at before directly revealing his wife's kidnapping. In the battle that ensued, Manah and Legend found themselves evenly matched before Manah threatened to kill Xayna, sending him into a rage. Manah managed to escape through a portal but kept Xayna alive for his future plans. Manah instead turned his attentions towards N'sverh, holder of the first Chaos Stone. Manah appears to N'sverh in a dream, taking on a horrific form. Attempting to talk the Stonekeeper into suicide, Manah's efforts are halted by Legend, who later documents Manah in his library.
Unable to twist N'sverh's mind, Manah settles for the next best thing, transporting him through a portal and into one of Manah's pocket dimensions depicting his old home several years ago. The radio in the room begins to inform viewers that a man, N'sverh, had been in a terrible accident and had his face terribly mutilated. N'sverh attempted to attack Manah, only for him to fade away. He is then forced to watch helplessly as his wife breaks down in tears and kills herself. He grabs a gun from his shelf drawer and proceeds to kill himself, much to Manah's pleasure. The entire room fades to black as Manah uses a complex blood ritual to drain N'sverh's spiritual energy and give him access to the first Chaos Stone, which he later delivers to Nekrozoth as promised.
Battle for Earthrealm
Manah appears four episodes later fighting alongside Nekrozoth and his armies for dominance over Earthrealm and the third Chaos Stone. Manah instantly kills both Shao Khan and Tony Stark, making his way down the battlefield as the surrounding city goes up in flames. Once reaching the sanctum, Manah creates a wave of psychic energy and manages to distort reality long enough to track down the location of the Stone. Despite the heroes futile attempts, Nekrozoth and Manah manage to capture the Stone and escape through a portal, leaving the majority of Earthrealm in ruins. They are pursued by a small group of heroes and another fight ensue at the Cathedral of Justice as Manah and Nekrozoth attempt to take the two Stones housed in it. During the fierce battle that followed, Nekrozoth was severely injured by Legend and Manah cut off from the rest of the group by Johnny Cage, who proceeds to strike down the demon multiple times using an array of divine weapons.
Just as Cage prepares to deliver the finishing blow, Aka Manah disintegrates into flower petals, revealing he was merely a copy. Nekrozoth also disappears. The heroes rush to the Cathedral only to find that the guards had been slaughtered and the Stones taken by Manah and Nekrozoth. Manah surprisingly disappears for the majority for Phase Two, briefly leaving Nekrozoth as the singular antagonist.
Aka Manah makes a reappearance during the final days of Nekrozoth's Xpocalypse, in which he is seen discussing the invasion of Outworld with Artillery. In spite of Artillery's point that it would be easier to attack while the remaining factions in Manah's Outworld were fighting among themselves, Manah argue that they could use the people of Outworld as lab mice for their "future experiments", eventually gaining Nekrozoth's approval and starting to project himself. At the end of the same episode, Manah is seen using high frequencies of psychic energy to torture Kotal Khan. He then exits through a portal and begins searching for the final Chaos Stones.
In the form of a convoy of portals, Manah enters the planet Mobius and returns in an attempt to murder the revived Sonic, as Sonic was recently named Chaos Stonekeeper by The Grandmaster. He causes a brief rift in reality, allowing the Zeti to return to Sonic's dimension. As the others fight off the incoming attack, he lures Sonic, Tails, and Jet into a corn maze in which he takes on a nightmarish form and chases the trio through the endless paths of corn before eventually cornering them at a dead end, blocking off all possible escapes and taunting Sonic for his inability to protect Princess Elise. Sonic attacks Manah out of rage, but is quickly incapacitated and restrained. Manah kills Tails and Jet before bringing Sonic to Outworld for further torture.
Sonic's death plays a heavy toll on his friends, most notably Amy Rose. As her depressive state deepens, Manah begins observing her and pulling the strings on her fears in an effort to bring her to suicide and achieve "the ultimate revenge" on Sonic. Manah brings the tortured Sonic onto a rooftop which Amy is preparing to jump off of, forcing him to watch helplessly. Sonic's love for Amy overwhelms Manah and allows him to escape Manah's grasp, embracing Amy and stopping her from jumping. Aka Manah, completely disconcerted, screams in rage and hurls a sphere of flames at them. Solid Snake enters alongside two Citadel guards at the final moments, using a personal shield to protect them both from the flames. Despite his best attempts, he is overpowered by the wrathful Manah and thrown off of the roof, with the last living Citadel guard jumping down after him.
Manah summons a series of chains from the ground and drags Sonic through a portal to Outworld before throwing Amy off of the roof as well, killing her instantly upon impact. On the ground, the Citadel guard removes her mask and reveals herself to be Naomi, Snake's love interest, who screams in rage and fires two rounds form her weapon at Manah. The bullets merely graze him as he releases a single puppet string wrapped around his finger, the tip of it wrapping around her neck and beginning to strangle her. Manah quickly grows irritated of her cries for help and quickly tugs on the string, tearing off her head.
Creating the Realm Beast
Shortly after the battle for the Sixth Realm, Nekrozoth's first major defeat, Manah appears by his side and informs him that some of his soldiers have found remnants of the Primion's life essence. The two proceed to argue over how it should be utilized before finally coming to a concord. Using the Primion's essence, the power of the Chaos Stones, and the deepest form of twisted magic, they created the Realm Beast.
The horror was put on full display two episodes later, in which Manah and Nekrozoth attempted to force the Sixth Realm into a ceasefire so they could focus their attention on the Champions and Legend. After stubbornly refusing the treaty, Manah summoned the Realm Beast through a portal and threatened to wipe out the planet's human population as a display of power. To his surprise, the people of the Sixth Realm held hands and watched in horror as the Realm Beast slowly approached. Just as the people began fading into Oblivion, Legend and Jack Spark created a hex around the Sixth Realm in which Manah or Nekrozoth's abilities would be cancelled out upon use, finally ending the Xpocalypse.
In the sudden aftermath of the end of the Xpocalypse, Manah makes yet another brief disappearance (escaping the destruction of Nekrozoth's liar through a tear in reality) before facing off Legend for the last time. As Legend continuously attacks Manah, the demon blocks blow after blow, showing how much he has grew since their last battle. Manah decides to "play along", purposely lengthening the fight in order to make Legend believe he has a chance at winning before mocking him and pinning him against a wall. He offers Legend a position in his empire, claiming that they could rule side by side, an offer which he denies. Disappointed, Manah impales Legend with a dark energy crystal and hurls him forward, preparing to finish him off before he is rescued by Zartath. Aka Manah sees this as a chance to gain information about the Champion's plans and takes Zartath prisoner.
It was later revealed that Zartath was kept in Manah's chamber for several years, with the timeline jumping forward just after Nekrozoth's victory over the heroes at Dyofor. Although alive, Zartath had been emotionally and physically tormented by both him and Artillery, reducing him to an emotionless husk. Manah begins to grow irritated as Zartath's fiery resistance fades and he begins to pose less and less of a challenge to him in his rule. He ultimately decides on freeing Zartath from his restraints and offering him over to the Realm Beast, despite Artillery's warnings against it. Just as he prepares to throw Zartath into the Lavitar Pit (the Realm Beast's dwelling), Zartath remembers his family and builds up enough strength to strike down Manah and create a portal before being gunned down by Artillery.
Naturally, Manah becomes infuriated by this and lashes out at Artillery for ruining his chance to watch his captor die, while Artillery argues that he could have caused major problems if he were to escape. The argument eventually boils over to a full on conflict, with Manah summoning a devastating meteor storm. Artillery desperately attempts to escape through his own portal before inevitably being killed by Manah himself amidst all the chaos, who throws him into one of the recent craters and watches as he burns to death.
One by one, the heroes of the Omniverse are brutally slain as both Manah and Nekrozoth come and closer to Omniversal domination, leading to the final standoff at Earthrealm. As Nekrozoth's avatars begin slaying enemy soldiers by the hundreds, Manah and his legions begin searching for the seventh and final Chaos Stone. The trail leads them to an abandoned Earthrealm metropolis, in which Sho and Cage had already arrived. Manah realizes that despite his nearly unlimited power, their divine weapons are capable of immensely harming him and summons the Realm Beast, which instantly kills Sho. Cage chases Manah onto a skyscraper rooftop which the Realm Beast slowly begins scaling and crosses his and Sho's weapons, creating a beam of light and delivering a critical blow to Manah. Manah admits his admiration for Cage's courage and offers him the same proposition which Legend has refused with the same result. Manah then proceeds to bring Cage into a mirror dimension and offer him one of the Chaos Stones, which he destroys.
Enraged, Manah disappears, leaving Cage alone on the rooftop to be devoured by the Realm Beast. Manah arrives shortly afterward to retrieve the Stone from the destroyed city. The remaining Avengers make every effort to stop him but are overpowered by his soldiers and brought into captivity before being fed to the Realm Beast, meeting the same fate as their fallen ally. Manah also stages an attack on Athens, killing Wonder Woman and destroying the divine Temple of Athena in the process. Manah delivers the captured Stone to Nekrozoth and disappears, finally ready to exact his ultimate revenge.
Entering one of Ahriman's many pocket dimensions, Manah confronts the Emperor and accused him of either killing or manipulating nearly every family that would have taken him in, even condemning him for making him the monster he was. Ahriman, rather than denying these claims, mocked Manah and claimed that "nobody would have wanted you. Nobody." With those words, Manah snaps and uses the Realm Beast to end Ahriman's life.
The Final Standoff
With six of the seven Chaos Stones in their possession, Manah and Nekrozoth (with Vulcan as their captive) had a final confrontation with Legend and Jack Spark in the ruins of the Cathedral of Justice. Manah and Nekrozoth began discussing their plans for the Omniverse, realizing that their conflicting views would end a threat. Manah continues to torment Vulcan as Legend and Spark push through Manah's forces before reaching the Cathedral and storming in, killing both of Nekrozoth's guards. Spark attempts to mutilated Nekrozoth with his sword but is paralyzed by Manah. The storyline then breaks into three alternative endings: the bad ending, the good ending, and the alternate ending.
As Nekrozoth attempts to sway Legend into joining his army, Manah creates a duplicate of himself to stand in his place beside Nekrozoth's throne as he phases through the Cathedral wall. The conversation between Nekrozoth and Legend reaches an end with both parties realizing that the long battle will end one way or another. Legend eventually agrees to hand over the reconstructed final Chaos Stone to Nekrozoth in exchange for Vulcan and Spark's safety. As the Stone levitates towards Nekrozoth, it dissolves into a black mist. Manah appears from the opposite corner of the room, Stone in hand, and releases a powerful blast of energy, stunning Nekrozoth long enough to allow him to retrieve three of the remaining six Chaos Stones. Manah and Nekrozoth engage in a fierce cosmic battle, disintegrating Legend, Spark, Vulcan, and the entire Cathedral. The advantage shifts from one god to the other until Nekrozoth grows too weak from fatigue to continue to battle.
Manah rises victoriously and drags Nekrozoth into a pocket dimension. Nekrozoth examines the void around him, terrified before two strings appear from either side of him and restrain his arms and legs. Manah appears, watching for a while as Nekrozoth struggles to free himself, before repeatedly impaling him with a divine spear. He claims that it was going to end with one of them dying one way or another and that he simply "beat you to it". The strings intensify and start tugging in opposite directions. Manah leaves, ignoring Nekrozoth's cries for help as the Creator of Evil is ripped apart.
As the last, and ONLY being capable of harming Manah, Cell is targeted immediately after, lured into a maze of mirrors in which every reflection is Manah. Cell frantically searches for an exit before Manah lunges through one of the mirror and pins Cell down. Just as Manah prepares to land the finishing blow, Cell labels him a coward, hiding behind his endless forms and avatars. In an impulsive move, Manah wipes out all existence (including Daeva) except for Cell and himself in order to prove that he is not a sum of his countless avatars. The demon proceeds to brutally attack Cell, gibing the demigod and reminding him that he feeds off the hatred in the soul of every person and that he will continue to exist as long as their is hatred to be given. Cell realizes this and makes the final sacrifice, killing himself and effectively killing Manah as well. Manah watches in horror as he begins to fade from existence before collapsing on the ground and finally excepting his defeat, resetting the Omniverse to a void once again.
Similarly to the bad ending, Manah forms a duplicate of himself to take his place and phases through a nearby wall, this time reappearing in one of the Cathedral's corners. Nekrozoth persuades Legend to give up the Stone by force, threatening to murder Vulcan and then his entire family. Legend reluctantly agrees and let's go off the Stone, watching as it levitates towards Nekrozoth's grasp. Just as Manah prepares to claim the Stone for himself, Nekrozoth snaps his fingers and combines Manah and the duplicate, stating that he "knew only you would be foolish enough to attempt such a petty grab at power". Nekrozoth throws Manah in front of his throne and kills Legend, Spark, and Vulcan, absorbing the Chaos Stones and finally becoming the ultimate destroyer. Manah cowardly begs Nekrozoth for a second chance, claiming that he can give him "more than you can comprehend". Nekrozoth wisely ignores this and fires a beam of energy at the demon. Manah uses his full strength and uses a single hand to fire a red beam of energy directly back. He holds his own for a time before being overwhelmed by Nekrozoth' strength and disintegrating.
With his newfound power, Nekrozoth resurrected Manah for constant torture and begins "toying" with the dimensions, accidentally reviving Jack Spark and Legend. The two resurrected heroes confront Nekrozoth, who summons every underling in his capacity (including Malroc and Grandmaster Chaos) to battle them. Nekrozoth eventually fights them himself, arrogantly believing he is powerful enough to kill them without harnessing the power of the Stones. He easily overpowers Spark, who receives a devastating blow to the chest from Nekrozoth's sword. Seeing Nekrozoth preparing to kill his student, Legend furiously swings at him, unintentionally cutting Aka Manah's chains and freeing him. In the massive shock wave that follows everybody in the battle is stunned with the exception of Manah, who teleports and escapes. Legend proceeds to take multiple hits from an enraged Nekrozoth before Manah's puppet strings shoot out of the ground, temporarily restraining his arm. Nekrozoth grows to a gigantic form and Nekrozoth follows suit, utilizing his near multipotent and spatial powers to their full extent. The battle that follows momentarily blinds Legend and Spark as the two proceed to bend the fabrics of space and time. Nekrozoth ultimately comes out as the victor, but not before Manah manages too wrap two sets of his strings around Nekrozoth's neck, entering his mind and taking control of the god.
Nekrozoth's eyes light up red and multiple Omniversal rifts appear as he and Manah battle for dominance over the body. Legend regains his senses and realizes that two of Nekrozoth's chest plates were damaged during the fighting, leaving him vulnerable. With a boost from Legend, Spark flies leaps through the air and drives his dagger through Nekrozoth's heart, finally killing him. As he collapses and disintegrates, Manah also vanishes and the seven Chaos Stones emerge from where his corpse previously was. Spark reaches out to grab them, ignoring Legend's warnings, only to realize that they were replicas. Manah appears behind the two with the real Chaos Stones, mocking them for their beliefs that he would simply change and forgive the Omniverse for all that it had done to him. Manah slowly rises into the sky, still laughing, as the Stones circle around him. However, due to Manah's days of torture and brainwashing at the hands of Nekrozoth, and since the Stones cannot be used by the mentally insane, Manah is unable to absorb them and instead begins disintegrating into embers. He falls to the floor and runs towards Legend, who finishes the demon off with a final blast of energy. The heroes then set out to restore the Omniverse to its previous beauty.
Return to the Omniverse
Manah appears in Phase Three of Champions of the Multiverse as a minor antagonist. Following Nekrozoth's climactic defeat, as well as Manah's attempted betrayal and death, Manah returns to reality by aligning the timelines and allowing himself to return from a branching timeline in between the Good Ending and Bad Ending chronologies. He first appears in the Days Ending Arc through a shadow-like embodiment and resurfacing in Jack Spark's nightmares. Spark soon begins to consider the possibility that Manah could return.
Aka Manah appears again, in the form of runes on the walls of Chernobog's Temple, as Spark and Fuse find themselves held captive in the Temple's undergrowth. Though Spark decides to travel through a gateway leading into the Bad Ending timeframe, Fuse continues to explore the runes on the Temple walls before he is confronted by an overcast silhouette with piercing red eyes. Fuse confronts him, to which Manah reveals that the timelines were growing unstable and preparing to merge, allowing him to reenter existence through a branching timeline. Manah then recedes from view, leaving no mark behind him as Fuse leaves through another gateway.
Because of Nekrozoth's established rule and excessive powers as the ruler of the Second Timeline, Spark is captured and held within a cell in the Omega Lord's facilities for brutal experimentation. Whilst on his flagship, Nekrozoth is shown speaking to a weaker avatar of Manah, in which he reveals his plans for the Omniverse following the "Merging". Manah suggests extermination of the remaining Prime Omega's, to which Nekrozoth agrees as his fleet approaches Malroc's home planet. Following the initial occupation, Manah is also seen hovering above the wreckage of Malroc's carrier in his umbral form as Malroc begins to approach him.
Multiversal Legend Film Universe
|“||You are weak. Fragile. Frugal. There is no hope for you, nor is their hope for this little rebellion. You can not escape my eye. You can't escape me. And even if you do, even if you are somehow naive enough to believe that you're little bitch Legend will save you again, you will bow to the mercy of Nekrozoth. Of course, people like you would be intimidated by him. I'm not. His motives are ridiculously clear, so much so that his reality often crosses paths with his delusions. Fool. Oh, how I wish the empire could be in my hands once again. But I'll wait. I'll wait until the final day of his conquest. And just as that sick little smile spreads across his face, I'll kill him. Rip open his chest. Feed his inside to a couple Sparxian slaves. Y'know, Jack's family. I wish I could see the look in his eyes. That...now THAT would make my day.||„|
|~ Aka Manah's speech to Legend during their initial confrontation in which he reveals his desire to kill his master|
The Nameless Evil, known by his adopted name Aka Manah or Lord of the Six Serpents, is a sadistic demonic warlord, Nekrozoth's closest ally, and the secondary antagonist of the Multiversal Legends Film Universe. As well as being an extremely powerful demon with near-omnipotent abilities (raging from cosmic manipulation to the literal creation of life), he has claimed to be the physical manifestation of the Six Serpents (wrath, envy, deceit, hate, control, and chaos) giving him control over a wide variety of emotions. He was responsible for sinking the Omniverse into a literal pit of hatred and despair for a period of six weeks, an event which Jack Spark would later dub "reverse spirit week". As well as being a strategic and tactical mastermind, Manah is the unforgiving uncle of Ballack. He (alongside Nekrozoth) is the overarching antagonist of Beyond Dimension, the secondary antagonist of Legend, and a major antagonist in the spin-off film Spark. he is also the main antagonist of champions of the Multiverse.
He is voiced by his creator HeresJosh, although his voice alternates with a surprise cameo from Nekrozoth's voice actor during his death scene.
Not much is know about Manah's origins, as he (unlike his original counterpart) has relatively few speaking roles in the series. His backstory was explored during the conversation between Jack Spark and Legend in Legend's chronicle library, in which Legend reveals Manah came existence after a powerful king tricked the god Ahriman into creating him a being capable of toppling nations. As Manah grew in power, the king became more abusive and bias towards him. He was forced to live on the fringes of society and was regularly betrayed and mocked by the people around him. He slowly began to grow a hatred for society as a whole and his love of violence grew.
He was also seen in a flashback in Beyond Dimensions as Spark begins cycling through the events of the Omniverse. He sees Manah running through a forest, the sound of people's cheers and laughter coming from outside. He eventually falls to his knees and cover his ears, screaming in rage. To his surprise, a raven comes to his comfort, which he gently strokes. The vision transitions to Manah looking in horror as the forest catches fire before Spark's ship is attacked by Malroc's fleet. Manah apparently trapped the entire kingdom in what could only be described as a "psychic magnet", physically and emotionally paralyzing everybody inside as he sets fire to town square. He begins to make his way towards the castle, looking at the scorched bodies of children and men alike. After slaughtering the gate guards, he enters the castle and proceeds to enter the throne room, instantly killing the king, his wife, his adviser, and his three children. He later raises the king from the dead for further torture.
The rest of his origins are left mostly obsolete, it was common knowledge to the people of the Omniverse that he and his associates (called Manah's Disciples at the time) were responsible for the horrific massacres of the Fifith Realm, murdering thousands of people in the temple of Deus under the orders of Nekrozoth. This event was also depicted in one of Sparks' visions, with Manah being seen at the temple enterance with a flaming sword.
Multiversal Arena Appearences
Aka Manah is planned to make numerous appearances in the non-canon Multiversal Arena series, beginning with his arrival as one of the contests in the third episode, where he battles Dorito Man. The fight itself is depicted by his creator, HeresJosh, and WeirdWojak, the creator of Dorito Man. The battle ends in Dorito Man's favor, who (despite severely overwhelmed by Manah's destructive capabilities) is underestimated and ultimately takes advantage of the sadistic demon's arrogance.
Aka Manah is a sadistic, near-omnipotent demon and one of the true main antagonists of the Multiversal Legends series as a whole alongside Nekrozoth and Grandmaster Chaos. Responsible for the incineration of the entire human population of the Fifth Realm, Manah is a ferocious and chaotic warlord as well as a physical personification of evil who takes joy in tormenting his victims, both mentally and physically. Although not as powerful as Nekrozoth, Manah has almost unlimited psychic powers and is capable of manipulating/merging universes. His character, based off of a demon in Zoroastrian mythology, was created by HeresJosh.
Puppet Master: Manah is a skilled manipulator, often stretching to the truth to his own extent as means to exploit and control those around him. He, along with Nekrozoth and Malroc, is the self-proclaimed masters of the series, pulling the strings and orchestrating nearly event. Manah's deceitful nature is put on full display during his conquest for the Infinity Stones, in which he plays off of the desires of the inhabitants of the Omniverse, giving false promises in exchange for their unquestioning loyalty. He also has a part to play in starting the Omniversal War.
The Boogeyman: He looks for any way to psychologically torment those around him in a vain attempt to continue the delusion of complete control. His favorite targets, among others, are children, who he deems naive and disgusting. He enjoys playing off of people's fears and using their traumatic experiences as "tools". He once even created a line of candy bars made out of the organs of deceased children simply for a gag.
Hypocritical Asshole: Manah is arrogantly hypocritical, a personality trait which has become a running gag throughout the series. Although he maintains certain moral standards (such as his hate for love or any expression of it) Manah mocks The Observer for his moral policies against harming children (despite his own admiration of animals) and claims Nekrozoth's "survival of the fittest" outlook will end in his own death (although he believes in elitism himself.)
Almost Supreme: The one limitation to Manah's power, along with his own arrogance and vulnerability to divine weapons, was the very idea that he will remain almost perfect. His abilities all have drawbacks and is unable to use the full power of said abilities unless in his final form.
Delusional: The single most distinctive personality trait belonging to Manah is his strong delusions and sense of self-superiority, beliefs which he will go to nearly every limit to prove true.
The Rage Monster: Manah is extraordinarily temperamental, often lashing out at any signs of resistance or diversion to his plans. His rage apparently fuels his twisted motives as he is mercilessly ripped apart Sonic in Phase One out of wrath alone. His wrathful motives have also lead him to wipe out an entire portion of the Fifth Realm. He often screams in rage and destroys either objects or people around him as of means to "go to the happy place". Manah also seems to be rather childish when in his rages, picking apart his opposers in any way possible.
Two-Face: Manah seemingly has two contrasting personalities, being portrayed as both a calculative sociopath and an impulsive sadist with genocidal tendencies. Despite his extremely wrathful and brutal nature, Manah orated many interstellar conflicts and used the key players in them to his advantage. He takes no remorse for exploiting and killing thousands, as well as abusing his above-godly powers in committing atrocities.
In his most common form, Aka Manah appears as a humanoid ram with razor-sharp teeth and glowing red eyes
wearing a well-tailored black suit with a black overcoat and a red scarf around his neck. He seems to have some kind of imprint on his forehead, which allows him to channel his powers and is almost always seen carrying around a Victorian-Era marionette, which secretly is the hiding place for the Universe Stone, the mysterious seventh Infinity Stone.
When in his final form, which can be obtained when he achieves "universal control", Manah's appearance changes completely. He takes the form of a gigantic dragon-like beast formed out storm clouds. He doesn't have any arms or legs and appears to resemble a snake. He still has ram horns but trades his glowing red eyes in for glowing blue ones.
|“||One way or another, sentient life will destroy itself. I am simply here to influence them...and BREAK them.||„|
|~ Manah revealing his lack of faith in the Omniverse|
Although having some redeemable treats, such as his ability to feel empathy and love for animals, Aka Manah is a close second to only Nekrozoth, being a deceitful, manipulative, brutal, hateful, and emotionally unstable entity determined to either reshape the Omniverse in his image or completely destroy it. His Borderline personality doesn't portray him any more positively, either. To Manah, the world is black and white, evil and good, destructive and peaceful. He uses this to justify his intentions, giving his followers false hope that they, along with him, are on the "white" side. And even though he continuously preaches this delusion to his army, Manah repeatedly antagonizes himself and takes pride in his villainous role. His personality is a mix of his character from Zoroastrian mythology and the negative personality traits of his creator, Here'sJosh.
The list of unforgivable atrocities committed by Manah spans an eternity, as he is the one responsible for some of the most devastating attacks on the Omniverse committed in known history. After breaking away from his creator, Ahriman, Aka Manah seized control of one of the Chaos Stones. The Stone began to fuel Manah's deepest desire. If he could not have the love of a family, he would settle for the next best thing: the fear of an Omniverse. The Stone eventually drove Manah to destroy a universe, wiping out all of its inhabitants instantly. He WAS eventually captured by Deus, but managed to charm the elder council and steer the blame towards the Prime Omegas. His actions, along with deviating from Nekrozoth, would spark the Omniversal Wars.
In the conflicts that followed, Manah used the countless lives lost to his advantage. Manah manipulated two rivaling tribes of daemons in Oblivion and started a proxy civil war. The war devastated both Oblivion and Hell, allowing Manah to step in as a "Pure Salvager". An expert story-teller to the end, Aka Manah exploited the daemon's nationalistic tendencies and steadily began building up influence in the Omniverse. His empire would eventually grow to a megaversal size and take brutally to take control of thousands of universes.
And despite the devastation Manah's destruction leaves behind, he always finds a way to come to power in the aftermath, slightly revealing his tyrannical and narcissistic side. His empathy seems to completely fade during these times. Manah has incredible talents in leadership and motivational speaking, while also managing to seize planets in an instant and rule over them with an iron fist. In one day alone, he orders the deaths of sixteen THOUSAND Kree rioters at the hands of his massive Chitauri legions. Insecure over himself, Manah strives to prove he is superior in any one possible, including murdering anybody who dares to criticize his ego.
And yet, even though Aka Manah is aware he impulsively takes control of those around him, he usually shows little to no empathy for his actions. During his final fight with Cell, he even admitted how he takes pleasure in using the "filth of the Omniverse" (referring to people) in order to satisfy his unquenchable thirst for control. Hi many wars, before and after his initial imprisonment, have killed billions and pushed him into working with the likes of Nekrozoth, Lord Dominus, and Artillery, simply for personal gain. He even created a brand of cereal made out of the organs of human children as a gag and proceeds to laugh hysterically as Spark consumes the mixture. It is even revealed at the end of Phase Six that Lord Dominus only betrayed Manah because of his unshakable belief that Manah would do the same, a belief which was most likely accurate. Still, Manah refused to let Dominus explain himself and brutally beat him on the spot, ordering him to leave his reaches of the Omniverse and never return. His incredible powers only add to the danger allies and enemies alike face while in his presence.
As mentioned, Manah is morally unable to harm animals, although he has absolutely no problems with killing and torturing children. The exact opposite, as Manah even stated that an "annoying child's death is more satisfying than an annoying man's". He has displaced thousands of children of both senators and national leaders during his personal search for the Infinity Stones, and billions more during his conquest for the Chaos Stones. The most famous example of his disregard towards human youth was when he haunted, twisted, manipulated, and tortured Sho's child, Darren, before finally locking him in a room with his old toys, which Manah brought to life. He then smiles as they proceed to rip apart Darren, his screams echoing off of the walls.
His temperamental and stubborn nature has also affected his own soldiers, who tend to "disappear" during his episodes of rage, either by themselves or by Manah. Nekrozoth himself has admitted to slightly growing paranoid of Manah during his rages, as it is the only time he can fully utilize his own power. The power's, however, are uncontrollable, making Manah nihilistic during theses rage. This adds to his factor of danger, as he will be willing to sacrifice nearly anything, even his own life, to achieve his goal. According to legends, he killed sixty legions of traitorous Skrull in an instant using this rage.
Manah's most dominant personality trait is his lust for destruction and chaos, making him one of the deadliest beings in the omniverse. The billions of rebelling planets that have fallen under the demon's rule have either had every major city burned or had the most prominent rebels tortured on live television. On the dimensions he hasn't conquered, Manah has been known to start proxy battles and civil wars all to settle his desire for violence.

Powers and Abilities
Aka Manah may not be a god like his creator, Ahriman, but he is an incredibly powerful demonic warlord capable of destroying entire realms and traveling in almost every universe. Due to his power conquests and manipulative skills, Manah has gained incredible supernatural abilities off the back of his wars, including:
- Teleportation: Manah is able to disappear and reappear in any location he pleases within a realm or planet. Due to his incredibly fast molecular travel, teleporting also makes him vulnerable to attacks for 0.034 seconds after appearing in his target location, which is why he chooses to travel through portals.
- Outer-Dimensional Teleportation: As well as being able to teleport throughout any realm, Manah is also able to teleport to different realms and dimensions. Unlike other demonic entity, Manah is able to travel through all 89,979,543 multiverse in the omniverse.
- Omnipresence: Manah, being the physical manifestation of evil, is completely omnipresent and is in every living entity in the omniverse. Despite this, some of entities with weaker wills are more likely to fall under his influence. Despite this ability, he cannot enter location protected by the Mantle of Immunity.
- Psychokinesis: Manah is able to control multiple aspects and elements using his mind. This ability comes in a variety of forms and can be used to change, shape, manipulate, control, destroy, create, move, or empower a certain object and/or element.
- Pyrokinesis: Manah is able to manipulate, shape, and generally control fire. This ability also doubles as fire immunity, meaning he cannot be harmed in any way by flames. This ability also allows him to create flames and extinguish them using his mind, although locations with the Mantle are protected from this ability.
- Telekinesis: Using his mind, Manah can move and destroy objects at his will. Manah is extremely skilled in this ability, as he was able to lift the weight of a planet using only his mind. He was able to telekinetically punch a traitorous Skrull out of a planet's atmosphere and is able to move multiple objects at one.
- Mind Control: Not to be confused with possession, Manah is able to control one's mind and bend them to his will. Unlike possessing somebody, in which Manah enters their body, mind control allows him to remotely control them and influence their thoughts and actions. Using this ability, Manah can also control multiple people at once and influence major universal scale wars.
- Levitation: Although he is not able to fly, Manah is able to levitate up to 30 feet off of the ground and move in the air at incredible speeds. Using this ability, Manah can also pick others up and haul them off the ground as well, not effecting his own levitational height.
- Mind Reading: Manah is able to read any one person's thoughts are future actions with ease. Although this ability works on the majority of entities, Manah is not able to read the thoughts of extremely powerful deities such as Vohu Manah or Ahmir. Manah is also able to read the thoughts of the weak minded instantly and with incredible accuracy.
- Universal Awareness: Manah is completely aware of actions happening to him in any of the 89,979,543 multiverse and is able to see events and future events in each one. Although this ability has some limits, Manah is generally able to be completely aware in all universes. This ability is similar to Manah's omnipresence.
- Telepathy: Manah is able transfer thoughts and visions to other people using only his mind. This is mostly used as a form of interrigation as he sends visions of his incredible powers to enemies, but can also be used as a form of mental torture, manipulation, and sometimes a form of communication between him and other omnipresent demons. This ability also allows Manah to shatter one's mind.
- Dream Telepathy: Also known as Dream Manipulation. Manah is able to insert himself into other people's dreams and visions and/or influence them. He can create nightmares, change a dreams landscape, or change the dreamers actions/thoughts during the dream.
- Terrakinesis: Manah is able to cause violent earthquakes and tremors in the ground using his mind. He is also able to somewhat control tectonic plates and cause massive landslides, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions.
- Hypnotism: Manah is able to put people in a state of consciousness involving reduced peripheral awareness, focused attention, and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestions. In this state, on or more people can be manipulated or persuaded by Manah more easily and tend to respond to his commands without giving their actions a second thought.
- Dark Magic/Sorcery: Manah is able to cast out incredible spells and curses using dark magic and dark energy control. While using this ability, Manah can call for powers from other evil supernatural entities and deities and manipulate them to use for personal gain. Using these abilities, Manah can also set curses upon objects and people, including himself when it benefits him.
- Shapeshifting: Manah is able to change his physical and spiritual form at will into anything he desires. This also includes changing his size and voice, which can be further used to manipulate anyone. This ability does have limitations, however. Manah is not capable of transforming into divine beings and cannot completely split his body into two pieces while shapeshifting.
- Immortality: Manah is a demon, meaning he can live forever and will never die of natural causes. He also cannot be erased by other demons with the power of destruction, as he was created and curse by Ahriman. In a sense, he also cannot die unless being erased by an incredibly powerful god, such as Ahriman.
- Third Eye: When in need, Manah is able to open up his "Third Eye", granting him perception and recognition beyond ordinary sight. Using this ability, Manah can also take glimpses into the future and the past. The third eye can also grant him vision of a gods' future of present actions, making it incredibly powerful and useful.
- Military Strategism: As a powerful warlord, Manah is an extremely skilled military strategist and was capable of wiping out The Fifth Realm in a period of sixteen days. He also rallied an army of Chitauri, Skrulls, and Las Plagas, using them and their respective leaders a puppets to conquer more planets and spread his omniversal influence.
- Energy Manipulation: Manah is able to channel/expel both mental and physical energy, allowing him to send out waves and blasts of energy towards any target he choose. The power of these attacks varies, and can be controlled by Manah alone. With a high enough frequency, Manah can also shatter one's mind.
- Cloning: Manah is capable of cloning himself, making identical weaker avatars that abide by his will and consciousness. Although he can control these clones, they are generally weaker and serve only as distractions to protect Manah's true form.
- Bilocation: Manah is capable of being in more than one location at once, making it almost impossible to truly kill him. Although Manah has many physical bodies through the omniverse, he can only have one true form per multiverse and his bodies cannot be in the same multiverse, meaning he COULD be killed if a being were to travel to every multiverse and kill him.
- Immense Healing Factor: After being injured mildly or severely, Manah has to ability to heal his wounds almost instantly (depending on the size of the wound). His arms has been cut off on multiple occasions, and he has been shown to regrow them at full size in just a few seconds. It is also said that as long as a particle of himself exists, he can regenerate to full form within a day.
- Possession: Manah is able to spiritually leave his physical body and take control of another person/creature's. Unlike mind control, Manah can feel pain when the person he is possessing is harmed in any way, although he cannot be killed when in another person's body. Manah also cannot possess other divine beings such as Darkseid, Zalgo, and/or Dr. Manhattan.
- Reality Manipulation: Unlike other demons, Manah can manipulate and change reality without the Reality Stone, making him closer to a god then a demon. He is able to change the way one, or a group of beings, perceive reality either visually or physically. This also allows him to create weapons out of thin air and manipulate physical structures/buildings. Manah is also capable of creating pocket dimensions, smaller universes which he controls every aspect of and can trap others inside.
- Psychometry: Simply by touching an ancient or divine object, Manah can see it's history and it's meaning. He is also one of the only beings able to psychometrically read the Infinity Stones, a task which not even Thanos is capable of performing. This ability, like Dark Magic, also allows him to give any object he wishes a curse upon touch.
- Laser Manipulation: Manah is able to generate and create lasers of any power or shape, including Darkseid's omega beams. His lasers are generally fired out of his eyes, although occasionally they can be launched or generated from the palm of his hand. This ability also allows him to create a personal shield around himself, which is capable of resisting/absorbing. any attack.
- Soul Manipulation: Manah has the ability to either absorb an object's life energy and/or corrupt their soul and morales. Using this ability, Manah can turn the most innocent of people into brutal tyrant's or dissociative serial killers. He is also one of the few beings which can manipulate souls without using the Soul Stone.
- God-like Strength: Despite his sleek stature, Manah is incredibly strong due to his god-like abilities. He is able to lift thousands of tons of rock with ease and was able to snap the Happy Smilestone's neck with a single hand. He is also capable of punching through walls and throwing objects through skyscrapers.
- God-like Speed: Manah is able to run incredibly fast due to his god-like abilities. At his highest speed, Manah can run two times faster than the speed of light. When at his top speed, Manah cannot be seen by the naked human eye, making him incredibly hard to keep track of during motion combat. While using this ability, Manah can also create clones that run similar speeds, confusing his pursuers.
- Resurrection: Manah has the ability to resurrect other beings at will as well as granting life to non-sentient life when it suits his own needs. Victims of Manah's resurrection also tend to forget their past lives, allowing Manah to use them to easily manipulate them and use them as slaves.
- Portal Creation: Manah is able to create and manipulate small portals as he pleased wherever he wants. These wormholes allow him to travel from one location to another in incredible time, all while not draining his power. He can take other being into his portals or drag things from other place through his portals.
- Pathokinesis: Aka Manah, over a span of eons, has developed the ability to manipulate and/or influence people's thoughts, behaviors, or even a select few of a persons emotions. His pathokinetic ability is actually a span of different powers he uses to infuriate, toy with, a mentally break his opponents, most notably the select number of emotions he has control over. He can also completely shift a persons feelings towards themselves or others and even change their entire outlook on life. This was shown during the finale of Phase Four, when Manah begins cycles Jack Spark through a series of emotions in an attempt to mentally break him.
- Wrath Manipulation: Often seen as the god of wrath and occasionally as wrath itself, Manah has the ability to share his temperamental nature with unsuspecting victims or control the emotion entirely. He was shown using this ability in Phase Four during the battle with Vulcan, in which he attempts to turn the hero's own rage against him before ultimately being overpowered. He also has a limited influence over the Red Lantern Corps, as seen during the invasion of Sector Nine.
- Phobikinesis: Being an expert tactician and manipulator, Manah often uses fear to either force people to bow to his will or completely humiliate and break his enemies. Manah cannot only use fear to his advantage, but control the emotion itself. He can sense any mortals deepest phobias and desires (similar to Pennywise from IT) and use them to his own advantage. If the time calls for it, Manah can also give a person an entirely new irrational fear of objects or people they may have never seen or noticed in the past.
- Odikinesis: Arguably his most defining characteristic, Aka Manah can manipulate, twist, generate, absorb, detect, negate, and control the emotion of hatred. He benefits off of the resentment mortals and gods alike hold towards others and has even embraced the emotion himself. He often uses others hatreds to his own advantage, such as when he created a proxy war between two rivaling tribes of demons in Oblivion. He also turned Daeva against his entire council, a difficult task to achieve as Daeva as an incomprehensibly powerful being beyond the restraints of logic itself.
- Spatial Manipulation: Manah has near complete control over space itself and can warp/manipulate it on a god-like scale. Although he has been seen in the series creating rifts, changing momentum, and compressing/contorting space, these abilities are apparently only the basis of what he can truly do. Utilizing this power, Manah has been shown bending space to his own liking without physically damaging or changing the target. He can also manipulate matter and/or energy by taking control of the space it is accompanying, as well as generating warps in the time-space continuity. These powers, however, can sometimes be uncontrollable, such as during the Phase Two "Good Ending" in which he create multiple warps in space-time while attempting to posses Nekrozoth.

|~ Aka Manah upon reentering into existence|
|“||Don't like people being late, aye?||„|
|~ Manah appearing before William Braxxon|
|“||(Mithra: You...you maniac! You will destabilize this entire dimension!) Exactly! Let me tell you a story, kid. From the beginning, I was always underestimated. Despised. Prejudged. And now, I'm going to make everybody feel the way I did. Hopeless.||„|
|~ Mithra confronting Manah|
|“||Peekaboo! (Smilestone: Great. And what the fuck are you?) My existence cannot be limited to a single word. And if it did, why would I share it with a circus clown? (Smilestone: HAHA! Simple. I won't put a bullet through that demon skull!) Funny.||„|
|~ Manah meeting Happy Smilestone|
|“||(Braxxon: Feeling egotistical today, aren't you precious?) Well, doctor, when you've been thrown, biased, and underestimated your whole life then maybe, just maybe, YOU WOULD BE MORE LIKE ME, NOW WOULDN'T YOU?!
|~ Manah and Braxxon|
|“||(Scarlet King: Daddy?) Do I look like your fucking father?||„|
|~ The Scarlet King (in the form of a child) upon meeting Manah|
|“||(Legend: Mr. S?) Hello there tall-shiny-and-emo.||„|
|~ Manah appearing to Legend as a hologram|
|“||My point is, in a mere few hours, Legend and his little pussy entourage will arrive at Gotham. (Braxxon: Then let's go get the damn Stone already!) No, ass hat, we WANT them to arrive! If we invade during their stay, we could get the Stone and have that pest out of the way from the very beginning. (Braxxon: Are you sure? Cuz this seems a little risky.) RELAX, Willy. My forces are already prepared. All we have to do is wait for them to arrive. But in the meantime...
|~ Manah in a conversation with Braxxon moments before beginning his decimation of the Fifth Realm|
|“||Are you feeling lucky this day? Are you?! (Smilestone: Like a flower in a sprite bottle! HAHAHAHA!) Your really a character. You took 20,000 jolts, came back to life, and took another 50,000. And yet, it doesn't phase you. (Smilestone: What's your point, furry?) Since I can't torture you, I'm simply going to have to PUT YOU DOWN!||„|
|~ Aka Manah after torturing Smilestone|
|“||(Steppenwolf: What do you have to offer me, demon?) Oh, I don't know. Something you've been chasing for centuries, something you've come so close, but never had the guts to do. What is the one thing you crave most? (Steppenwolf: Power?) No. Freedom.||„|
|~ Manah manipulating Steppenwolf|
|“||The ultimate life form, huh? The personification of tyranny!? (Darkseid: What do you know of tyranny, goat?) Oh, I don't know. I've enslaved multiple planets from multiple universe in multiple timelines, but who's counting? Now, I have a proposition for you. You see, you call yourself a god, but you've never achieved true omnipotence. Me? Why, I can grant you that. Let's make a deal.||„|
|~ Manah offering Darkseid omnipotence|
|“||Not bad for a goat, huh?||„|
|~ Manah after killing Darkseid|
|“||(Dominus: What? MY ARMY WILL BE SLAUGHTERED OUT THERE! And the Ancient One, she...) Calm down. The Ancient One is taken care of. Everything will proceed according to plan. (Dominus: Plan? What kind of mindset do you have to make a plan. You and those disgusting creatures.) Yes, and do you know WHY I don't blindly slaughter animals? Because animals can't talk. Animals don't judge you. Animals don't question you. You could learn from them.||„|
|~ Manah to Lord Dominus|
|“||What am I? I AM YOUR GOD! You serve me, Dominus. Without me you and you're army are USELESS. You're only talent is disappointment. You're father must have been proud.||„|
|~ Manah lashing out at Dominus|
|“||People of Earth-616. Prepare yourselves, as your salvager has finally arrived! I've been lurking in the shadows, watching as your skyscrapers rose and your weapons advanced. They call me a butcher of the innocent. But how innocent are you, really? You slaughter your wildlife, you abuse your power, you destroy your own buildings. And for what? The few perfect on this planet will be forgotten. The rest of you.....prepare to envy them.||„|
|~ Manah's most famous speech as he prepares to attack Earth 616|
|“||(Steppenwolf: YOU! WHAT DID YOU DO?!) Beautiful, wasn't it? Who knew the Elder Sun would detonate like that! (Steppenwolf: You have no idea what you just did!) I think I have the basic scope. I combined your universe, with another. Merged them together, if you will. That way, if any problems come up, I can wipe both of the slates clean. Boom. Game over.||„|
|~ Manah merging the DC and Marvel universes|
|“||How does it feel? To have everything taken away from you. To feel the way I felt every minute of my pathetic life. Despairing. Nobody loves you. They never did, and they never will. And you know what the most painful thing is? I knew it. And I felt it, every second.||„|
|~ Manah justifying his brutality|
|“||What the.....NO! (Sonic: Looks like your too slow!) GET BACK HERE YOU LITTLE BLUE FUCK! WHEN I GET MY HANDS ON YOU, I'M GONNA TURN YOU INTO ROADKILL!||„|
|~ Manah during his encounter with Sonic|
|“||(Legend: I'm going to seal you away, Manah. And this time, you'll never escape.) Really? Do it then! Seal me away! TRAP ME IN THAT VOID FOR ANOTHER CENTURY! I'll come back! I always do!||„|
|~ Legend threatening to seal away Manah|
|“||Yes. But here's the thing.....I think I'll take it for myself!||„|
|~ Manah in Legend's body|
|“||Don't you see the terrible irony of all this? You call yourself king, yet today, you will die like a man. And you can do nothing to fight it. The flames will consume you, bit by bit. And when you finally snap, I'll be waiting.||„|
|~ Manah after battling the Scarlet King|
|“||This fear you have. It's nagging you, isn't it? Biting at the flesh? (Ridley: There is nothing you can do! THE DAMAGE IS DONE! I'LL NEVER BE THE SAME!) Oh, Ridley. I truly think there is. It's right under your nose. The problem here is simple: you don't seek it!||„|
|~ Manah manipulating Ridley|
|“||You watch me through the protection of your screens, cradling your safety while your children grow up under my corruption. You don't know me. (Holds gun up to head) You never will.||„|
|~ Manah in JozY's body|
|“||Run, run, as fast as you can. I'll always catch you. You know I can.||„|
|~ Aka Manah chasing after Sonic|
|“||Holds up, does it? What's the pain worth, when I just want to see you burn? (Jack: You psycho fuck! I'ma have you hanged for this!) You don't intimidate me, Jackie. And soon, neither will your corpse!||„|
|~ Manah torturing Eyeless Jack|
|“||(Legend: COME ON, DICKHEAD! You beat us. Snap your fingers and end this.) Oh, Slendy, why so SIMPLE?! You thought I would travel the Omniverse, slaughter BILLIONS, just to kill half of your evil race? (Grandmaster: He's bluffing.) Am I? Or are my plan's too simple for you? I'm going to use these Stone to break that divine barrier. And once I get my hands on the Chaos Stones...you're going to suffer a fate WORSE than death!||„|
|~ Manah to the Champions during their final confrontation|
|“||YES! FINALLY! AFTER ALL THESE YEARS! I AM A GOD! FINALLY THIS WORLD WILL BEND TO MY WRATH! THERE IS NO SAVING YOU NOW! DIE! DIE! DIE!||„|
|~ Manah achieving his final form|
|“||ˆ¬¬ˆ˜© ˆß å˜ å∂∂ˆç†ˆø˜≤ ¥ø¨ ß´´.||„|
|~ Manah during his transformation|
|“||NO! NO! I WAS SO CLOSE! DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND! YOU'LL RUIN EVERYTHING!||„|
|~ Manah defeated by Kratos|
|“||You.....this is not over! I will not accept defeat. I WILL NOT REST UNTIL YOUR BLOOD IS SPILLED ON MY HANDS! (Grows to a gigantic size) Ï´´¬ µ¥ ∑®å†˙!||„|
|~ Manah during his final battle|
|“||Please! Don't do this! You don't understand what you're doing! (Kratos: Lies! All of your lies have poisoned these worlds! You must be silenced!) Fine! I'll kill you! Like this! ON MY OWN! HAHAHAHAHA!||„|
|~ Manah's final attempt at killing Kratos|
|“||I....I lost. The most powerful creature in existence has fallen....to mortals. This...this can't be! I'M DREAMING! (Thanos: This is no dream, Manah.) No! I'M PERFECT! I CAN'T LOSE! (Snake: Bye, goat-bitch!)||„|
|~ Manah's defeat|
|~ Manah as he is sealed away by Snake and Thanos|
|~ Aka Manah shortly after being revived by Nekrozoth|
|“||I'm going to ask you this one last time. Where...are...the Stones? (Kratos: FUCK OFF!) That's what I hoped you would say. (Stabs Kratos.) I'll rip you apart, Kratos, piece by piece. And as I take everything from you, I'll look at the fear in your eyes, savoring it. And then, I'll take that too.||„|
|~ Manah before finally killing Kratos|
|“||So you have a WIFE now? (Legend: If you lay a finger on her...) I could never harm her. (Legend: How am I supposed to know your not fucking with me?) Because, I already HAVE.||„|
|~ Manah claiming to have killed Legend's wife|
|“||(N'sverh: What the fuck is this?) Memories are funny things, aren't they? Some of them warm. Some of them sting. (Radio: A man, off highway boulevard, has been in a terrible crash. Here at the scene are medics, frantically trying to rescue the victim from his burning vehicle...) Some of them hurt.||„|
|~ Manah after dragging N'sverh into his pocket dimension|
|“||Do you know what you and this puppet have in common, Cage? (Cage: We're both ruggedly beautiful?) What? NO! You both have strings.||„|
|~ Aka Manah to Johnny Cage during his invasion of Earthrealm|
|“||(Cage: I was expecting more of a fight from you, furry-white-and-ugly.) You weren't expecting this. (Turns into flower petals.) (Cage: What the FUCK?)||„|
|~ Manah's earthly avatar revealing to be a fake after his battle with Johnny Cage|
|“||(Artillery: We need to attack now. Outworld's vermin are scuttling among themselves. This is our chance.) Don't do anything you'll regret YET, Ares. I have a different approach to this situation.||„|
|~ Manah explaining his plans to Artillery and Nekrozoth|
|“||So you're the fastest thing alive, huh? (Sonic: Right.) I'll give you a head start.||„|
|~ Manah taunting Sonic before killing him|
|“||(Snake: Back from the dead?) YOU?! (Snake: So you remembered?) Oh, I remembered...and I'm going to remember THIS too.||„|
|~ Snake confronting Aka Manah|
|~ Manah finally ending Snake's life|
|“||(Naomi: You're going to die for that.) Come on. Hit me. Let's see how far love gets you this time.||„|
|~ Manah to Naomi after killing Snake|
|“||(Nekrozoth: Let's make it sick. And twisted. Filled with hatred beyond comprehension.) Sick? This is child's play compared to what we can make it. (Nekrozoth: What can we make it?) Feared.||„|
|~ Manah and Nekrozoth discussing the creation of the Realmer Beast|
|“||You're nothing. You're father knew you were nothing. You're brother knew you were nothing. We could've both been worthless. We both had dreams. I just knew how to use them...||„|
|~ Manah taunting Legend for not joining him when he had the chance|
|“||You don't seem to get the full scope of things here. We don't just want to KILL him. No, that would be too simplistic. Merciful. You step aside, collect your Stones, do what needs to be done. But when it comes down to Legend, you let me break him. Twist him until he comes undone. Then, you have my permission to kill.||„|
|~ Aka Manah discussing Legend's torture with Artillery|
|“||ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS!? (Artillery: I told you he'd die tonight. I never said when.) You...YOU RUINED EVERYTHING. (Artillery: What're you gonna do? Tell brother?) No. With you're luck, he won't be able to SAVE you in time.||„|
|~ Manah after Artillery kills Zartath|
|“||(Sho: What...what is this?) This, my little friend, is chaos in it's purest form.||„|
|~ Manah to Sho|
|“||(Umbrella Guard: Boss? What about them?) Them? They serve no use to me. Throw them in the Lavitar Pit. Let's what our monster can do.||„|
|~ Manah ordering the Avengers to be fed to the Realm Beast|
|“||You...you would rather destroy the Chaos Stones than join me? (Stark: You're insane, Manah.) INSANE?! You could have been a GOD, Stark! But...you gave it up. You ruined it for everyone, just so you could feel heroic. (Stark: And you would know what a hero is?!) I know what a martyr is...||„|
|~ Manah before his fight with Tony Stark|
|“||You're brother told me a lot about you, Athena. (Athena: My brother? The coward?) Oh, he did. (Creates sword out of red energy.) He said you dreamed of dying in battle.||„|
|~ Manah vs. Athena|
|“||(Athena: NO! The...the gods have...not...abandoned...me.) Really? They didn't think twice about it when it came to me. (Blows up Temple of Zeus.) I guess you were wrong.||„|
|~ Manah during the Battle of Athens|
|“||(Ahriman: I created you, Manah. You cannot defeat me.) Oh, I know that. (Summons Realm Beast.) But what about him?||„|
|~ Manah preparing to kill Ahriman|
|“||(Cell: This...this is a battle weighed in your FAVOR! You're a coward, Manah. Hiding behind all of those forms. I cannot wipe out everything.) But I can.||„|
|~ Manah wiping out everything in existence (via the Chaos Stones) except for him and Cell|
|“||Don't you see it yet?! Even without all these avatars, I can still kill you. I live in every being's soul, Cell. You can't beat yourself. (Cell: Yes...I...can.)||„|
|~ Manah and Cell shortly before the latter commits suicide|
|“||What's...oh no. No, no, no, no, NO! What's...¬ˆ˜©ßå∂...happening...to me?!||„|

|~ Manah's final words, which translate to "Revoke me, Daeva"|
|“||Shhhh. Please don't cry. It's all going to be okay again. I'm home.||„|
|~ Manah returning to the Omniverse in Eniel Shined's body|
|“||Time after time, you've failed. You've lowered any expectation I had from you. You failed your teacher. You failed Fuse. You failed your family. Everything you ever held dear is breaking' down before you. And yet your still ITCHING to protect them. You can barely save yourself from your own delusions. How can you expect to save THEM?||„|
|~ Manah taunting Jack Spark|

|~ Manah's story-mode defeat|
- Aka Manah is seen as the personification of evil intentions in Zoroastrianism, making him the literal personification of evil.
- Despite being a demon, Aka Manah is more god-like then demonic, makiing him closer to a demigod due to his incredibly powerful abilities of creation and destruction.
- Although it is said he can only achieve his final form by achieving the feeling of universal dominance, Manah is also able to transform into his final form by harvesting all of the six Infinity Stones, plus the secretive Universe Stone.
- Despite being depicted as a ram, Aka Manah is also able to transform into a cobra, a crocodile, a raven, a flying eyeball with tentacles, and tall demonic figure formed from storm-clouds.
- Manah was able to defeat both Darkseid (who he killed) and Cell (who he brainwashed into one of his generals), although he could not defeat Thanos due to his connection with the Infinity Stones.
- When killed, Manah can regenerate his entire body from just a single particle of blood, hair, or cut off skin he lost in battle.
- Before killing Happy Smilestone, Manah was able to be stabbed by a vibranium blade without getting his skin pierced, meaning he can only be harmed by a weapon either divine or made of a metal stronger than vibranium.
- In-universe 6B77, Manah successfully obtained all seven Infinity Stone, wiping out the entire realm before it as returned to it's primitive state by Vohu Manah, triggering the fight between them.
- Manah is also responsible for killing Scorpion, Bi-Han, Katniss Everdeen, and driving Zalgo's right hand man, X, to suicide after showing him visions of what will happen if he fails Zalgo.
- Although Manah is able to enter every multiverse in the omniverse, he is unable to use his abilities in the Second Realm.
- Manah's final form resembles that of the dragon enemies Kratos faces. It is possible Manah may have done this purposely to scare the God of War.
- Manah is referred to by his enemies as "goat-bitch".
- He is apparently related to Nekrozoth and Artillery.
- Manah's empire is enormous and consists of over six billion species, including daemons, Chitauri, Skrulls, monsters, orcs, hybrids, Sanghelli, necromorphs, Prime Omegas, mythological creatures, symbiotes, tyrants, and demigods.
- Aka Manah, according to community theories, shows seven out of the nine symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder:
- Extreme emotional swings: Over the course of the ten Phases of Multiversal Legends, Manah is constantly shown as displaying sudden, unmotivated changes of attitude. Shortly before the invasion of Earth 616, he is shown having a neutral conversation with Lord Dominus before growing irritated and lashing out at his ally. In his conversations, he changes from comedic to a serious tone in seconds for no apparent reason.
- Impulsiveness: Manah is incredibly headstrong and usually acts on actions rather than thought. He is also shown making brash and risky decisions without a second thought, such as his decision to betray Nekrozoth mere moments after he collects the Chaos Stones.
- Distorted/unstable self image: Manah, despite starting as a selfish and egocentric, slowly begins to doubt his own importance before full-one antagonizing himself and embracing his role as a sadistic warlord.
- Explosive anger: This trait is especially noticeable in Manah's actions, as he constantly lashes out at both his allies and enemies on a daily basis. While confronting Sonic on Mobius, he becomes fully controlled with rage and impulsively abandons his own goals in an effort to kill Sonic as an act of revenge.
- Feeling suspicious or out of touch with reality: Manah constantly zones out of reality, accompanying his short attention span (another one of the demon's few weaknesses.) He is often paranoid that his own soldiers would attempt to overthrow him, even confessing some of these thoughts to a Prime Omega under his command.
- Unstable relationships: The few friends Aka Manah really considers "friends" are often manipulated and used by Manah, who in turn expects them to give him their unquestioning loyalty and patience. The entire world is black and white to him, with no in between or neutral colors.
- Chronic feelings of emptiness: Aka Manah, behind his "mask of sanity", is known for having a feeling of worthlessness, even admitting to his desire to make everyone feel hopeless like he does. People suffering from BPD often cover this up with intense eating habits or some kind of substance abuse, while Manah conquers and enslave people in order to feel satisfied with himself and gain a feeling of importance/control over his life.
- Self harm: Although this character trait is rarely explored, Manah rarely does harm himself out of rage alone. After hearing that the Champions had captured the final Infinity Stone, he began slapping himself out of anger. Manah also impaled his hand with a divine knife after realizing that Dominus had betrayed him.
- Manah shares multiple similarity traits with Nekrozoth:
- They are both unforgiving and sadistic tyrants.
- Both are vengeful and short-tempered.
- Both have selfish and egotistical views on life.
- They both are the big bads of their respected Phases.
- Both are delusional and go to extreme lengths to prove their superiority, Manah conquering a large portion of the Omniverse while Nekrozoth attempted Omnicide.
- It's up to debate who is eviler, Aka Manah or Nekrozoth. They're both complete monsters, and Aka Manah did everything that is atrocious besides rape (since he considers it, and any form of love, disgusting and pointless) and animal cruelty (he has been seen feeding dears and petting birds, along with reviving Chernobog's dog for no apparent reason.) Nekrozoth did Rape a lot of people and is very cruel to animals (just speak to Chernobog's dog). Nekrozoth is all the creator of everything evil, and is the source to all evil, but Aka Manah is evil personified.
