Just For Fun: If you were a nemesis villain, what would your name and challenge be?

I'll start it off.

Villain Name: Eridani

Challenge: Distance walked challenge:

personal badge stats

bronze: 15km

Silver: 50km

Gold: 150km

Global goal: agents must achieve 500,000 kilometers walked. (would love to see discussion on whether this number is too high or low)

Cheers agents!




  • Name: Cerber

    Challenge; Utilize as many keys as possible. (IE linking portals to each other, linking all portals to one portal, making fields)

    Personal Badge Stats:

    • Bronze: 200
    • Silver: 500
    • Gold; 1250

    Global Goal: 25,000,000


    • Success: Double points to Connector Badge for the amount of links created during event. "More Keys" quick hack and glyph hack gives keys more frequently for that month.
    • Failure: Half AP in linking. Keys are harder to come by even when requesting keys.

    The different strategies I see with this is someone could burn out a portal requesting as many keys as possible and then linking everything to this portal. I also see people just fully deploying every portal they come across and just linking back to the last portal. Also, micro-fielding would be another strategy I'd see happening.

    Your (everyone) faction color has swapped. Destroy 50-200-500 of your previous faction color portal to earn the badge before you are swapped back.

  • Villain: Papyrus

    After the Year 5 key locker glitch, Ingress agents were permanently divided into two factions: those with 6 key lockers, and those with 5. Nemesis will eat one key locker at random from every Ingress account unless there are globally 10,000 standing Level 8 Portals owned by __ADA__ or __JARVIS__ on Sept 30, 1700 UTC.

    Individual badges for viruses used during event:

    The nemesis aren't villains!

  • NineBerryNineBerry ✭✭✭✭✭

    Then why do they wear masks and write messages containing threats?

    Boy, that's 10K hacks for that top tier!

    I repost mine to add up Backstory 😄

    Villain Name: Garamond

    Challenge: Create unique links.

    Backstory: After Nemesis unsuccessful attemp to overpower humankind, Garamond became restless as Helvetika, who happened to be a relative, lost theirselves into the XM Void. Seeking vengeance, Garamond paid close attention to how Aurora brought Earthlings to their knees, and understood that using the Portal Network was the key to achieve victory, so they went on with a lesser but more destructive challenge with the sole prupose of humans to sumbit to their web of strings...

    Personal badge tiers: Bronze: 100 / Silver: 250 / Gold: 750

    Global goal: agents must create a total of 13.311.331 unique links. Bonus: +25% drop rate on keys (including quantum locked keys). Malus: -25% drop rate on keys + 2% chances for every key in your inventory to turn into XM each day. Both timelapses would be 10 days.

    Villain Name: Pandora

    Challenge: Unique Capsule Drops. Agents must drop capsules containing gear. (I could be wrong, but it seems to me that each capsule has a unique number assigned to it that would prevent an agent from picking up and dropping the same capsule multiple times.)

    Personal Badge Goals:

    Bronze:  5 capsules

    Silver:  15 capsules

    Gold:  25 capsules

    Global Goal:  500,000 capsules dropped worldwide.  (I’m not really sure what would be a fair number.)

    If agents succeed, quantum capsules multiply items faster for a short period of time. If agents fail to meet the goal, quantum capsules lose items for a period of time.

    hahaha yes. it's kinda like playing a round of CAPTCHA to verify that a human is playing the game.

    by the time agents have completed 1000 quizzes, that would have gotten them black & blue.

  • Name: Prime

    Challenge; Keep Playing.

    Personal Badge Stats:

    Come October 1st opening the Prime client will penalize the player by awarding the badge. Cessation of play for 7 contiguous days removes the badge.

    Takes a look at random Font names...

    Makes shards xf

    Sets badge requirement to just one hack

    Sorry, what Niantic did cannot be topped

    Helvetica means Swiss in Latin. Switzerland is a fitting neutral symbol when it comes to our faction war. Avenir means "future" and I think it has something to say about the future of the game as we are putting redacted away and changing up the status quo.

    Of course the more tepid among us can sit here and talk about condoms and fonts... But the investigators know that everything is a symbol or a cypher, often shrowded in an obvious farce.

    I appreciate the badge requirement because there is no way to get everyone in on the shard game.

    the investigation is greatly overrated. i once fell to the belief that everything would have a meaning myself, but came to the conclusion that it's just random madeup stuff to keep us busy and our eyes away from reality. face it, somebody just took a list of font names to create the current story arch. it's pointless and i can almost guarantee you the next things that will happen are named after Verdana, Calibri, Lucida, Niagara, Tahoma or Wingdings.

    so, you mention avenir means future. But one of the meanings of Nemesis is righteous wrath. So righteous wrath will be our future, if that's what Niantic wants they can have it ;)

    Yes... I do think nemesis is operating with what they believe is righteous wrath. Fits with their motives pretty cleanly
