I recall you commenting quite a bit in Shinza or anything that'll more than likely get brought up in it even if it's not just Shinza alone lol.
So I saw your question on that UNDEFINED thread (best title btw kek) about Methuselah and Bey (and also the others).
It's...kinda hard to explain it. It's explained there in Interview. Before the LDO fights Methuselah, Mercurius explains to Reinhard that there is two method's in which one can use to fight Methuselah with. One method is to either force him to fight with your own "logic", and another is to fight with all the might you have.
Reinhard had the second method down to the count given his feat. But he didn't join in until after everyone had their turn cuz he wanted to beat Methuselah on "all fronts", which leads to the first method of fighting him with your "logic". In this case, it was Wilhelm who achieved it since other than the Glads support, he was actually harming Methuselah not as a God of Darkness but rather as two vampires of the night.
As for the 5-A, I think the profiles are scaling him that way, and thus the Commanders and Ren, due to Bey shattering the Jaws of Darkness. The Commanders are scaled up because of their superior soul stock and being legit Einherjars in the main story of DI. Ren is probably that for being able to fight them, although fight is a bit...hard to make you when you look at the two instances of him and the Commanders fighting.
At least that's to my guess cuz he did shatter them, but as for Methuselah himself he only harmed him because of the first method...as weird and complicated as it sounds.
User:Ionliosite/Rudeus is one I got at hand, and I got a lot more on word docs. I'm currently taking a break to read other novels that are short (like "Brave Chronicle: The Ruinmaker") and once I'm done I'll get back to reading, because this series is amazing and it's fastly becoming one of my favourite novels of all times.
And that's true too, Brave Chronicle only got 1 volume published back in 2015, so... (I read because I was told the villain was a Reinhard Heydrich copy, and he is, in personality and design, and every single power of his is conceptual in nature).

Hey Ionliosite, you remember Cardfight!! Vanguard right? I recall you replying our discussion thread for the verse.
I know you dont know much about the verse, but I was wondering if you could assist me in this CRT I made to give the verse some upgrades. Since the users for Vanguard here is....extremely small, I would greatly appreciate your input in the discussion so that it doesnt take eons for it to be concluded.
Fugil comes from the second branch of the Arcadia family from the time of the Holy Arcadia Empire, a branch known as the clan of traitors due to their desire to seal the power of the Xfer (that is, the Drag-Rides), which were a symbol of power to the first branch, known as the Lords. These two branches had been on war since before Fugil was born.
Fugil once saved a group of animals from a member of the Lords who was torturing them due to a hobby, and Arshalia Rei Arcadia (then the Princess of the Lords) was interested on his selflessness of putting himself in danger by entering enemy territory to save animals that didn't belong to him or anyone he knew. She saved Fugil from being taken by the guards, asking him to follow her to her home, and then they found both held the same desire of having the war between their branches end.
Arshalia took Fugil as his bodyguard, and both worked together on many kinds of technology that could help to further their goal of saving people from war, not just their family, but everyone. Fugil underwent multiple Baptism surgeries that slowly took away his humanity in order to become stronger to protect Arshalia, and before the sight that the war between their families wasn't close to ending, she created Ouroboros, the ultimate weapon for Fugil to use to end all wars; that said, when it was build, Fugil was unable to take the immense physical and mental strain Ouroboros put on him, so she created Sacred Eclipse as a system that would look for people in need and aid them.
With Sacred Eclipse guiding them to a better era, the war seemed to come to a close, but Fugil knew ending only this war wouldn't be enough to save the world, so he took the ultimate risk: he underwent a 100% Baptism, something which Arshalia calculated he only had a less than 0,01% chance of surviving. Fugil, against all odds, survived and became immortal, but felt into a coma for 1 month; during this time, Arshalia created an Automaton modeled after her, which she named Arshalia, to help her on her duty.
However, when Fugil woke up, Arshalia was dead, having been killed by people who claimed to be their allies, people who corrupted Sacred Eclipse into a killer machine to take over the world with her. Fugil simply killed all of them with the power of Ouroboros. Fugil has always been unsure about why Arshalia saved him, why she tried to grant his wish and why she wished to save everything, which led him to be filled with insecurity. However, after he underwent his final Baptism, his mind was altered, to the point that he did not feel sad when Arshalia was killed. This led to Fugil to notice how shallow he had become and decided to carry on Arshalia's wish no matter what.
Since then, Fugil is driven by the goal of finding a king who will lead the world correctly by bringing salvation to the weak. To this end, he seeks out "heroes" chosen by Sacred Eclipse (such as Singlen, Lux and Listelka) and assists them in gaining power. He does not care if these candidates are willing to use immoral means to gain power, but he disapproves of them becoming obsessed with power and becoming the enemy of the weak. This was demonstrated when he helped Listelka, despite her being willing to kill her own family to gain power, but betrayed and killed her when she planned to kill most of the world's population.
He has been doing for 1000 years, and every time, the same happens: he takes a new "hero" to take down the king with corrupt power, the "hero" becomes a righteous king who helps his people, the "hero" is corrupted by power, Fugil takes a new "hero" to take down the king corrupt with power, rinse and repeat. Due to seeing humans fall into the same mistakes over and over again on the course of 1000 years, he has become pretty cynical, thinking only him is a "true hero" that can make Arshalia's dream come true and that every other "hero" are just people who'll eventually fall into the same corrupt ways of their predecessors.
He's not really a bad person, he's mostly misguided, since while he has a very heroic goal, his means to do it (brainwashing, conspiracy, murder) aren't nearly as heroic.
Well, mainly his extremisms as you pointed out, because Ouroboros has memory/perception/fate manip on a world-wide scale, he quite literally brainwash people to remember only what he wants them to remember, to perceive only what he wants to perceive and to follow whatever fate he wants them to follow. He's doing this without anyone who can't resist it being constantly being manipulated by him despite being unable to notice it, and those who resists it and thus can notice others being manipulated are simply killed due to getting on his way. Also, despite complaining humans don't learn from their mistakes, he doesn't actually give them the chance, given he gets rid of everything that makes the mistake and erases people's memories of it, pretty much meaning people outright can't learn from their mistakes due to the effect that, if they make one, Fugil just push the convenient redo bottom and starts over his search for a "true hero". Not to mention, his cynism has got him to the point he can't even see that Sacred Eclipse has been corrupted beyond repair and still trusts her judgement simply because of her programming being made by Arshalia, not being able to see by himself who is actually worth of being called a "hero" (even the Automaton Arshalia considers Lux to be a "true hero" but Fugil doesn't because he failed to follow Sacred Eclipse's will).
Yeah, that's pretty much the reason he doesn't become king himself, he knows he may also fall into the same mistakes, so he must avoid being corrupted (yeah, he thinks he hasn't been corrupted by power yet).
Eh, no, Ouroboros is effectively the God Tier of the verse. How did they hype the extremely high power Sacred Eclipse would have by entering Rampanging Mode? By saying it was a threat on the same level as Ouroboros. And even then, that was wrong; Over Limit Singlen was stated to be even stronger than Rampaging SE, and yet he was skewered by Ouroboros without issue. This isn't getting into the fact Ouroboros can turn Over Limit (which all the Top Tiers admitted they have no way of matching), or that it can boost even more than Over Limit thanks to Reload on Fire's compression strengthening. Quite literally, Lux said that aside from Fugil, no one else in the entire history of the world would be able to use Ouroboros due to the simply insane physical and mental strain it puts on the user.
