Karl with his bird Arma

Karl is an animated statue from the fictional amusement park, "Castle of Nations". He runs on magical energy from the Castle, who is also in the Castle of Nations. His creator, Unknown-Person, created flashes on deviantART, depicting Karl in a OCT (Original Character Tournament) called "Law of Talos". His raven, Arma, who is made out of the same material Karl is, and has the ability to shapeshift into various weapons of Karl's choice, and the ability to mend Karl when a part of his body is broken.


Karl entered the tournament because the winner gets a free wish, so, he planned to wish for an infinite energy source, so that he could be able to never run out of energy. As fights pass, he keeps losing energy. 

That "same mistake" mentioned in the second round and in the final round, is the mistake of wasting the energy.

During the rounds, he is also shown to be a liar, and a psychopathic murderer.

In the final round, he made the same mistake again and was struck in the side of the head by Annie, therefore, concluding his tale.

In the end, he never won or got the energy source as he planned to.


Karl is depicted as a man whom gentle, symphatetic, and possesses polite manners when met people and opponents alike over the course of the rounds, even before either his opponents or himself start the battle. However, this masks his true, darker nature as a liar with traits that fit for typical yangires that he immediately revealed once his foes distracted: manipulative, psychopathic, murderous, and often, if not always, unpredictable. Albeit he is not as agressive nor wrathful as most typical yangires are, he is still one of the most both dangerous opponent and yangire on his own right: able to pretend to being friendly with competitors as the decoy before start to attacking them like what he did to Mizuno, Steffi, and Chimbley, pretend to apologize to a security officer before immediately decapitate him, and turned the tide of the battle when being insulted regarding anything that related to his skills with violin. In either way, he is deadly, even Climber, whom may happend to be his good counterpart, unable to comprehend his dark nature.

In Round 3, he gives Rellik a question, "How long do you think she'll be your friend? As long as it's convenient. That's how humans are, and you're wasting your time and effort trying to help her when you could be free." That statement suggests to us that he thinks all humans are selfish based on his perception of the red-headed woman's, or Rachel's actions.

As the time goes on, you may notice that images of a red-headed woman flash by. The woman in question is even mentioned in Round 3. Many have speculated that that woman is Karl's dead girlfriend. In Round 5, Karl vs Professor Part 1 of 2, you can see images of a man with a gun, the red-headed woman in shock, and Karl with an eyepatch where his scar is looking completely saddened and shocked as well. But, no one knows about his past for sure, so it is up to speculation of what happened in his past. In the end, we might never know for sure what happened in his past. Despite this, these flashback are hinted to be reason why he was molded into the Yangire.

Karl also acrophobic, it means he afraid of height, as seen in round 4.

Skills, Abilities, and Weaknesses

Being the anorganic humanoid competitor like Climber (albeit in Karl's case, his body made of stone), he is inhumanly fast, agile, and defunct physiology. It means that he is unable to feel physical pain except when he immediately staggered due to using too much energy. Unlike Climber, however, he also possesses superhuman strength that far superior than Climber has.

Although, he also possesses the weaknesses for such the powerful opponent. He always staggered everytime he ran out of energy. Not only that, being made of resin, his body would cracked and any of his dismembered part of his body would limit his capabilities in fighting. Although, this weakness can be countered by Alma, whom capable of shapeshifting into various weapon that suit for his need as well as mend his broken limbs.

These capabilities, combined with Arma that able to shapeshift into anything includes weapons like axe, pickaxe, sword, and javeline, making him a powerful opponent.


  • Karl is complete opposite with Climber while at the same time similar to him, making him somewhat Climber's evil and darker counterpart due to following reason:
    • Both are depicted as male humanoid being with anorganic bodies by Unknown Person, but..
      • Karl made from resin and therefore is an animated statue.
      • Climber is an animated cloth maneqquin.
    • Both possesses kind personality that made them able to socialize with other people despite also possesses capabilities as killing machine as seen in both Endzone and Law of Talos tournament, but..
      • Karl's good personality are merely facade to hide his Yangire-typed personlity that he revealed once his foes/victims distracted: psychopathic, liar, manipulative, murderous, and unpredictable. He also enjoying killing his victims, even often in an unpredictable way. Not only that, Karl never took everything seriously.
      • Climber's good personality is simply due to him being clueless, ankward and naive. Climber even dislikes murdering due to him believe that murder is a stupid act (though it was merely his claim due to him lacks of understanding how evil the act is). Despite this, he is more serious and determined to get what he wanted, includes if he had to fight for survival.
    • Both has human love interests that being the major plot of tournament where they involved in. This also being related with why they emotionally scarred:
      • Climber has Clarice, and as seen in Endzone, where he sacrifices his life to destroy Big Bad, the gigantic demonic being to save her and the rest of the tournament contestant. Climber himself is revived later by unknown means thanks to Doodle and therefore, it's uncertain whether Clarice reunites with Climber or not afterwards. In either way, the Big Bad has haunted Climber as result of the brief possession on him as hallucinogenic perception that he sometimes suffered.
      • Karl has Rachel, whom fate is uncertain whether still alive or not. Many flashbacks shows a grave ordeal that happened on both, in which flashes on Karl's mind during the final battle. The bad memories look very vague, but it's clear that they emotionally scarred Karl, molded him into Yangire in present.
    • Both possesses similar bodily abilities which are defunct physiology that made them inhumanly fast and agile, but...
      • Karl's capabilities are superior due to made of resin and also possesses superhuman strength due to the same reason. His weakness however, he easily staggers every time he spent too much energy and therefore, due to made of resin, damages that done to his limb would limit his fighting capablities as he cannot control his dismembered body parts.
      • Climber's capabilities are inferior due to being made of cloth, made him lacks superhuman strength unlike Karl, and therefore weak against fire and sharp objects. Despite this, Climber still able to control his dismembered body parts.
