The Knights of the Multiverse, or as they'd prefer it, just "The Knights", are the titular main characters of, well, the Knights of the Multiverse. Mentored by the remaining members of the Allied Robot Corps and under the co-leadership of Kamille Bidan and Sunset Shimmer, the Knights met through pure, insane coincidences and joined forces to stop the threat of the Heralds of Unicron. Now, they have only two missions: explore the now brought-together Multiverse and deal with the threats that might rise up from its depths, and to take in any lost souls from any world to give them a new home and help them find a new purpose.

They sometimes operate out of the New Photon/Saotome Labs, but they usually spend most of their time enjoying each other's company (usually) in the Glomar mobile home/headquarters.

History

Mini-Series

A Chance Meeting

Season 1

New Members

As the team continued their operations, their ranks expanded greatly, with numerous new heroes either through them falling through random portals or joining after the team would visit their worlds. Most of these new teammates consisted of super-powered and the surviving members of the legendary Allied Robot Corps.

Season 2

The Three-Way War

Season 3

The Guild of the Multiverse

Notes

The team could be considered a modern take on the Breakfast Club, The Outsiders, the Goonies, or heck, even Team Dai-Gurren of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann; a strange mixture of serious, goofy, innocently sweet, and potentially unstable freaks, weirdos, jerks, misfits, and screw-ups filled with their own personal issues (even some of the more experienced ones) coming together under strange circumstances that were originally hesitant towards one another, but over time form a strong, blood-like bond, with each member being dedicated and loyal to each other to the very end that doesn't care what everyone else thinks about them. This is best exemplified by the team's roster, which consists of characters who were anti-heroes or were straight-up villains that might've had some glimpses of redemption in them like Pacifica and Catra, side characters like Ruri and Mohm, and characters who only appear for at least a couple of episodes (or were a one-off appearance) in their respective series like Nyoka, Melody & Dani. The only real main character's represented come from the Super Robot/Real Robot shows (though to be fair, those characters are obscure enough to most audiences).

The "hierarchy" of the team is actually very interesting. The founding members (the ones introduced in the Mini-Series) are all meant to be side/major supporting characters from their home shows to give the introduction a bit of normalcy for new audiences. They're also meant to allude to the "Original Seven" of Justice League/Justice League Unlimited, with the big indicator of this is Starscream, who acts as the team's parallel to Shayera Hal/Hawkgirl, with him leaving the team for a good chunk of the show before returning practically full-time (although Starscream leaves them on much better terms than Shayera did). When more characters show up and join the team, many of which only had one or two appearances in their original source material (this is mainly so the series has a god number of characters that it can do practically whatever it wants with without trampling too much on their original characterizations), all of them are divided into their own little groups based off of teams and their closest companions from their own home series' (though of course, many of them intersect with one another), mostly to help tie the cast together a little better. These include Usagi's being based off of the Sailor Guardians, Catra and Jenny's based off their main groups of "friends" (for Jenny, Brad, Tuck and Sheldon, and for Catra, Scorpia, Entrapta & Double Trouble), Pink's being based off of the OG Crystal Gems, Sunset's being based around the Elements of Harmony, and Kamille's at first meant to invoke the feeling of five-man teams of most Super Robot shows have to tie into the first season's Super Robot/Super Sentai inspirations before evolving into a much larger squadron of pilots, sort of like the original AEUG or the Gundam Team of ZZ (see each characters' pages for further elaboration on that).

One idea behind the selection of characters on the team is to base them off of various elemental powers. These include fire (Agnes), water, ice/snow, thunder/lightning (Ayako), wind (Lorelai), plants (Flora), earth/stone, metal, sound, crystals, darkness and light (which could actually apply to many characters).

While the Mazinger and Getter Teams, as well as the other classic Super Robot pilots, do appear to help out the team in numerous battles, especially in the first season, and their members are recognized as founders of the team, they are not technically members of the team since, technically speaking, they are meant to act more like the team's mentors or backup when they get too far over their heads (as degrading as that might unfortunately sound). Plus, for the most part, their stories have already happened, meaning that they've already had all of their character development and are ostensibly at their prime (well, most of them, anyway).

  • So why bother including MazInkaiser and Shin Dragon then? Well aside from the fact that they're awesome, it's sort of meant to act as a parallel to their status in the real (anime) world. While many other Super Robot-centered characters/shows just like them have fallen to the wayside (but are still remembered to some extent), for one reason or another, Getter and Mazinger are the ones that're remembered and celebrated the most: the ones that continue to inspire others like Gunbuster and Gurren Lagann, and even get new incarnations themselves, like Mazinger Z: Infinity & Getter Robo Arc. So much like they seem to in real life, Koji and Ryoma will keep moving forward, fight and inspired when no one else can/will.
