Your soul will fall shackled to the horror... of an infinite nightmare!
~ Invictus' famous quote.
Join me, and burn this universe to nothingness, so that all of us can begin... again.
~ Invictus to Ash Graven.

Invictus is the main antagonist of the 2018 animated sci-fi TV series Final Space, being the unseen overarching antagonist of Season 1 and the main antagonist of Season 2 and 3.

Invictus is a being of destruction and the corruptor of the Titans, a race of cosmic beings that were destined to destroy the universe, as well as the Lord Commander's former master. Invictus later escapes by possessing Gary Goodspeed and then Avocato, before being forced to escape the Ventrexian's body and return to Final Space, where it now seeks to find Mooncake and use his powers to break free and consume life across all dimensions. At the end of Season 3, Invictus succeeds in escaping Final Space, corrupting Ash Graven and imprisoning the Lord Commander along the way. It is the archenemy-turned-master of Ash.

It is voiced by Vanessa Marshall.

Biography

Season 2

Invictus was first mentioned in the season premiere for Season 2 where Nightfall kills the Lord Commander but additionally tells him that when his master inevitably revived him, she was coming for them next. Sure enough, shortly after the Lord Commander's death, his body dissolves into energy as a demonic voice is heard implying that Invictus wasn't through with him yet.

The episode "Arachnitects" provides further information about the enigmatic Invictus. According to the Arachnitects, they were created by a higher race of beings beyond comprehension and they in turn formed Final Space, bringing the Titans into existence to assist them. However, once they reached the edge of the universe, Invictus sprang from seemingly nowhere and poisoned the minds of the Titans, corrupting them against their creators. The only Titan that didn't fall under Invictus' influence was Bolo, who managed to seal the Titans and Invictus into Final Space. Invictus attempted to escape Final Space throughout the millennia, at one point very nearly succeeding, until Gary Goodspeed's father, John Goodspeed, sacrificed himself to close a rift to Final Space, the resulting explosion culminating in Mooncake's birth. Mooncake's presence created a rift in the universe, weakening the walls of Final Space and leaving the universe vulnerable to the Titans, so the Arachnitects vote to take Mooncake and send him into Final Space as a way of fixing the cosmological imbalance.

On the Crimson Light, Mooncake hears Invictus, taunting that while he and the others were safe now, they would still find a way to escape.

In "The Closer You Get," Gary is told of a way he could communicate with Quinn by Avocato who was slowly recovering his memories. In order to get to Final Space, Gary goes through a series of trails, and reunites with Quinn, with it also confirming that Nightfall's words on Gary always being the one to sacrifice himself to the breach are true when he sees dozens of corpses of different reality versions of himself drifting in Final Space, having been killed from the anti-matter bomb. Invictus is revealed to have been keeping Quinn as their hostage and takes possession of Gary's body. They then try to kill Avocato and Little Cato through their new vessel, but opts to take Avocato when they sensed that he was stronger. They tempt Avocato with the notion that Gary stole Little Cato from him, and they seemingly mortally wound Gary. Being forced to shoot him, Invictus has Avocato disown his son, and vanishes.

In "The Sixth Key", Invictus, still possessing Avocato, tries to prevent the Team Squad from entering Inner Space. It first pursues them in a ship, but Little Cato reluctantly blasts the ship down, allowing them to enter Inner Space. However, Invictus follows them inside and attacks Gary, preparing to kill him. Before it can do so, the Team Squad arrives to save Gary, but Invictus uses Avocato's combat prowess and strength to effortlessly overpower all of them. During the battle, Invictus manages to catch Little Cato and nearly strangles him to death, but before it can do so, Ash Graven, having witnessed the death of her maternal figure, Nightfall, uses her rage to unleash her powers in a massive blast of energy that exorcises Invictus out of Avocato's body, forcing it to flee back to Final Space.

Afterward, Gary and the Team Squad go into Final Space with Bolo in order to save Quinn. They enter Final Space with the help of the Arachnitects, who seal the entrance behind them to prevent the Titans from escaping. Inside Final Space, the team finds Quinn amongst alternate versions of Gary that Invictus had killed. Gary leaves the Crimson Light and reunites with Quinn, but they are far from out of the woods: Invictus is waiting for them.

Season 3

In "...And Into the Fire," Invictus stages a trap for the Crimson Light and sets the corpses of the Garys from alternate timelines on Gary and Quinn. It also has two large Titans intercept the ship whilst gloating that their souls would be shackled to an infinite nightmare.

In "The Ventrexian," after Nightfall killed the Lord Commander, Invictus saved him from the brink of death, promising to make him a Titan if he were to release him from his prison. To do so, the Lord Commander would need to find Mooncake. Invictus also cures Lord Commander of his prior weaknesses ensuring that the Lord Commander would not die when he drew from his powers.

In "One of Us", it's revealed that Invictus possesses countless people so it can grow more powerful. It alarms the Lord Commander that Sheryl Goodspeed has escaped, possesses Fox and shows disappointment when the Lord Commander lets Mooncake escape before giving him his ship. It's also shown that Invictus chose Ash Graven and empowered her.

In "All the Moments Lost", Invictus is hidden in the Black Hole that the Team Squad has to escape from. While they ultimately succeed, Ash enters the Black Hole to confront Invictus. A episode later, in "Change is Gonna Come", Ash and Invictus come face to face, Ash seeing its true form. Invictus claims that it wants to destroy the universe and start from the beginning, and that Gary will kill Fox in countless timelines. Invictus empowers Ash, gives her a second eye and changes her hair, alongside giving a choice - Teaming up with Invictus or staying with Gary. She has three days to decide.

A episode later, in "The Chamber of Doubt", the Team Squad enters Bolo's mind, who was temporarily driven insane by Invictus. Ash encounters the only sane part of Bolo's mind remaining, and the two enter the titular chamber. Here, Ash finds Fox, who tells Ash his tragic backstory. However, while Ash is unaware of this, Fox is actually dead and Invictus is puppeteering his corpse. Gary enters the Chamber of Doubt, where the Invictus-possessed Fox is attacking Gary. While laying on the ground, Invictus possesses Gary's robotic arm, turns it into a blade and stabs Fox with it, making it seem like Gary killed Fox - Just like Invictus said to Ash. Invictus then abandons Fox's body in the Chamber of Doubt and leaves Bolo's mind, once again making the Titan sane.

Two episodes later, in "Hyper-Transdimensional Bridge Rising", Invictus returns, possessing a zombie Gary and angrily ordering the Lord Commander to invade Earth and kill the Team Squad, but not before choking him.

In "The Devil's Den," Invictus is finally freed due to Ash absorbing the "key" from Mooncake and escapes Final Space. As punishment for his betrayal, Invictus imprisons the Lord Commander in a crystallized box, the same thing which it used to Bolo long ago, and leaves him behind to rot for eternity. After escaping from its confinement, Invictus shows his monstrous ultimate form to the Team Squad.

Physical Appearance

Invictus has three projections as well as its true form. The first of the former is a demonic head with two horns, four eyes (potentially a fifth one on its forehead), and a permanent menacing smile. Its second projection is a massive eye with a pitch black pupil. Its third projection is a red ball of energy with glowing, blue eyes.

Invictus' true appearance is a gigantic, pitch-black figure resembling a Titan with a cow-like skull, four pink eyes and possibly a fifth one on the forehead, massive horns, smoke-like appendages and six pink lines on the torso, with possibly more below.

Trivia

  • Invictus' character is heavily inspired by the Devil of Christian theology. Like Satan, Invictus corrupted the formerly benevolent Titans against their creators, and its punishment of being sealed within Final Space is based on Satan being banished to Hell alongside his followers.
  • Invictus' name is a Latin word that translates to "undefeated".
