The Nameless One

The Nameless One is the source of all evil and also the overarching antagonist of the Dungeons & Dragons TV series. It is described by the Dungeon Master as pure evil and is Venger's master. He appears as a giant column of green flame and his face is said to be something not meant to be looked upon.

Not to be confused with the Nameless One, the main protagonist of Planescape: Torment.

Description[]

The Nameless One's only appearance is the episode "The Dungeon At The Heart of Dawn", where it is summoned by Eric after he opens the Box of Balefire. Upon arriving at the Realm, Venger decides to greet his master, but is chided for his repeated failures to kill the Dungeon Master. Afterwards, the Nameless One sets out to kill the Dungeon Master and his pupils himself, rendering Venger powerless in the process.

While traveling to their next destination, the kids feel the wind suddenly picking up. Horrified, the Dungeon Master senses the Nameless One approaching them. So he teleports the kids and himself across different places across the Realm, only for the Nameless One to catch up. In the midst of this, the Dungeon Master explains that the Nameless One is the ultimate evil those name is not for human ears and "not life as we know it".

After exhausting most of his energy, the group decides that they will run no further and try to fight the Nameless One instead. Using the power of the kids' weapons, the Dungeon Master tries to fight him, but is effortlessly overpowered. Using the remainder of his power, he teleports himself and the kids to the Underworld, but loses almost all of his power in the process.

The Nameless One is never defeated and simply leaves the Realm for other worlds to terrorize.

Trivia[]

  • The Nameless One is briefly mentioned in the unfinished series finale "Requiem".
  • Due to its unfathomable and mysterious nature, it is possible that the Nameless One is an obyrith- a type of demon known for its maddening nature, or even an Elder Evil, a similarily Lovecraftian being in the D&D mythos.
  • The Nameless One has a few similarities with the destroyer god Tharizdun. Like Tharizdun, the nameless one has no distinct shape and to gaze upon it or comprehend it as it truly is invites madness and destruction. The Nameless One also appears as a pillar of fire and one of Tharizdun's shapes is a pillar of violent elemental energy. Tharizdun is also seen at the ultimate enemy in D&D as it could not be destroyed only imprisoned, is not spoken of and even has its history actively hidden, and it also uses minions/thralls to do its bidding.
