For all the Chosen Ones of the prophecy, see Twenty Keys.
The Thirteen is Lord English's crew of multi-dimensional villains. They are named for their positions as the Thirteen Darknesses in the Twenty Keys Prophecy (however, including Bill Cipher, Lord English, and the Backup Army himself, there are actually 16 officers of The Thirteen). From their homebase the King Dutchman, their job is to travel the universes and establish dominion under the name of Lord English. They are the main antagonists of Seven Lights: The Last, and individual members have been the main villains of respective Gameverse stories.
The Lord of Time and co-writer of the prophecy, Lord English slowly formed his crew with the intention of conquering and rewriting all universes.
Because English has "trouble talking to people," his now-physical Imaginary Friend Bill Cipher serves as the overseer and boss of the other members. He sits in an office with stolen multi-dimensional treasures and several phones each linked to a certain officer.
Dimentio was the first Darkness to be awakened and was spoken to directly by English's spirit. Having melded with the Multiverse Portal using his Logia spacebending, Dimentio's purpose is to transport his allies to the connected universes. With English's applied power, he can transport to different times, too.
Yellow Diamond was a denizen of the First Dimension and co-empress of Emera, the Gem Empire. She longs to return to her homeworld and is rather indifferent with the crew.
Davy Jones is a Pirate Emperor and the Captain of the King Dutchman (as it was modeled after his Flying Dutchman). He is an undead mutated Fishman who wishes to drown all worlds.
Ganondorf was the King of the Gerudo in the ancient kingdom of Hyrule. Having been revived throughout the ages by the Triforce of Power, he is the reincarnation of Demise the True Demon King.
Marshall D. Teach, aka Blackbeard, is a Pirate Emperor like Davy Jones. With his Dark-Dark and Tremor-Tremor Fruits, he has power over darkness and earthquakes.
Sōsuke Aizen was a Soul Reaper who went rogue. He commands the Hollows of The Thirteen's army.
Xehanort is the Keeper of Keys, who gave his fellow Darknesses their Keyblades. He commands the Heartless of The Thirteen's army.
"Mad Titan" Thanos was an alien overlord from Marvel-199999. He wields a powerful relic called the Infinity Gauntlet, whose Infinity Stones have the potential to destroy entire planets in seconds. Because of his destructive nature, he is often reprimanded by Bill for not accumulating enough followers. He calls himself and Yellow Diamond the Titanic Duo.
Czar Baldy Bald IIIEdit
Baldy Bald III was the czar of the Chrome Dome Empire in the "World Without Law." His origins make him the most immature member, and his Power Level of 100 makes him seem the weakest of The Thirteen. However, Power Level can't measure his Bo-bobo Kempo.
Zeref is an immortal dark wizard who unwillingly brings death to whatever he loves. A cloud of Death Magic surrounds him.
Voldemort was a dark wizard who started two Wizarding Wars on Earth in the recent past. He created seven Horcruxes as a means of living forever, but their destruction has greatly weakened Voldemort's soul and his power. Voldemort cast a Multi-Seal Protection Charm on the Darknesses' Keyblades, making Lord English invincible so long as the Keyblades exist.
Zorc was a powerful demon from Ancient Egypt in the Termina Dimension. He was reborn as Truman Kirman, who was a member of Sector V before regaining his memories. He has imprisoned relevant people across the universes inside Capture Cards, which would help Lord English establish rule over those worlds.
The Millennium Earl (from D.Gray-Man) is a mad scientist who creates robotic Akuma out of peoples' souls.
Sephiroth (from Final Fantasy VII) was a soldier who worked for the Shinra Power Company. With excellent skill of a long sword and dark powers, he is quite strong.
Dio Brando (aka DIO) (from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) is the Lord of Vampires, a rather aggressive and charismatic individual.
Ragyō Kiryūin (from Kill la Kill) was CEO of the Revocs Corporation and Voice of the Life Fibers, a race of sentient alien clothing. The Life Fibers can repair her body should it be torn apart, essentially prolonging her life force.
Esdeath (from Akame ga Kill) was the general of a corrupt empire and hails from the Partas Clan. She is a powerful icebender who can freeze time.
Dark Oak (from Sonic X) commanders a fleet of robots called the Metarex. Dark Oak was a plant-like alien called a Seedrian, who assumed this new and powerful robotic form.
Giovanni (from Pokémon) is the leader of Team Rocket, who was promised all the Pokémon he could want in exchange for his cooperation. With mass quantities of Perma-Mega Potion, Giovanni's organization commands thousands of Mega Pokémon.
Heartless are dark creatures born from the darkness of peoples' hearts. Xehanort can summon Heartless to his side.

Relationships With Each OtherEdit
- Jessie and Yellow Diamond: Jessie of Team Rocket wanted to befriend Yellow Diamond knowing she was the only female in The Thirteen. Yellow Diamond thought of Jessie as a "human Pearl" due to her position as a chore woman on the ship. Yellow Diamond allowed Jessie to put her clothes in her room since the former never sleeps or stores items in there.
- Thanos and Yellow Diamond: Diamond is detested by Thanos' destructive tendencies; Thanos loves to destroy planets, while Diamond wishes to harvest planets' energy. When they were placed on a mission together, they fought well together against IDA Agent Korra.
- Ganondorf and Davy Jones: Because Ganon and Jones were previously in Team Gnaa together, they have a mutual acquaintanceship (ironic since Jones was enemies with the demons).
