Villain Overview

In the very beginning, it was a program that I designed to counter a military project, based on a multi-agent system.

A super dangerous program, like a virus, which can control electricity, and activates Towers on Lyoko in order to gain access to your world.
~ Aelita

XANA is the main antagonist of Code Lyoko. It is a sentient and dangerous computer virus that infects the Supercomputer that holds Lyoko. It seeks world domination and to eliminate the obstacles that stand in its way, the Lyoko Warriors.

When possessing Jeremy in the episode "Canal fantôme" ("Ghost Channel" in English) it was voiced by Raphaëlle Lubansu and by David Gasman in the English dub.

Personality

XANA is a dangerous computer virus with a mind of its own. It becomes a powerful and dangerous enemy force with the goal of spreading destruction and world conquest. XANA can calculate plans and even use human feelings to deceive and manipulate others, but is bound by logical patterns, making it very simple and easy to predict. It also never takes risks or repeats the same plan twice.

At first, XANA only launches random attacks to menace the world. As it becomes stronger and smarter, XANA conceives greater goals to use attacks as a means to achieve them every season. XANA's main desires are to survive, destroy its enemies, and take over the world network for the means to conquer the Earth.

It usually has the simple mindset of a hostile force with some intelligence among the virus extensions and creatures that share its mind. X.A.N.A. is violent, ruthless, and sadistic, can act manipulative to fool others, and becomes egomaniacal and taunting when having the advantage.

Powers and Abilities

XANA is a multi-agent system that inhabits and takes over systems like a virus, like the Supercomputer, and sends virus extensions to attack on Earth. It was formerly bound to the machine, until it stole the Keys to Lyoko. With them, XANA can escape the Supercomputer and access the world network, where it builds Lyoko copies in other supercomputers to achieve ultimate power and conquer the world.

Towers

To act on Earth, XANA needs to activate structures on Lyoko, called Towers. The only way to stop its actions is by deactivating them. It manifests unearthly viruses that infiltrate networks and become ghostly spectres that emerge from outlets at will, they are ghosts that are immune to harm and can affect the real world.

XANA can possess objects or living things (machines, inanimate objects, chemicals, natural forces, plants, animals, etc.) like a virus to manipulate at will, and cause electromagnetic phenomena to control electricity, affect the environment, or generate hypnotic sound waves.

XANA can later possess humans and manifest polymorphic spectres that impersonate people, both serve as inhumanly powered vessels that do its bidding on Earth. Only Lyoko Warriors cannot be controlled. They return to normal when the Towers deactivate and people remember nothing that happened.

With Towers, XANA can also materialize or teleport Lyoko minions to Earth through Scanners or Replikas, control special devices it has built, or show psychic visions to those linked to the Supercomputer.

Monsters & Programs

XANA's monsters

On Lyoko, XANA creates monsters of many varieties to fight enemies and attack targets, and created the Scyphozoa to steal digital memory or brainwash warriors. Using its Replika network, XANA can program the massive Kolossus, its largest and most powerful monster.

It can also alter sectors to manipulate the environment, program illusions and false objects, and open portals, create virtual prisons, plant bugs and viruses, modify incomplete warriors, or retrieve deleted ones to bind to itself. It can also program equipment and vehicles for its own warriors.

Physical Incarnations

XANA is a computer virus in the Supercomputer that keeps an unseen presence in its systems. It has no actual physical form, other than the spectres that it generates into the real world to perform actions using a simple part of its multi-agent system, while its core self remains anchored to the Supercomputer.

The "first" physical incarnation of XANA as seen in "Ghost Channel".

In the episode "Ghost Channel", XANA appears for the first time inside a virtual simulation of the real world as XANA knows it. This manifestation is theorized to be XANA's true self, since it acts with more anger and sadism than any of its programs and considering its behavior when it broke down trying to compute a logical fallacy. The manifestation is a demonic caricature of Jeremy that acts as the controller of its simulated world, and it was destroyed when Aelita dispersed the bubble with her powers.

XANA later manifested through a Polymorphic Spectre resembling Franz Hopper in the episode "Franz Hopper". Unlike most spectres, this imposter was capable of articulate speech and used deception rather than brute force, implying Xana was in direct control of it. However, the disguise wasn't flawless, as he showed distain towards Jeremie for letting "XANA destroy my diary"; in truth, XANA had tried to destroy it, but failed due to the intervention of the real Franz Hopper.

The second direct appearance of XANA was at the end of "The Key", where an enormous mass of a spectre was seen spiraling into the sky from the factory as the program escaped Lyoko. This is only form of XANA to be confirmed in-universe as its true form, since it was seen leaving the Supercomputer as a collective force rather than a weaker part of itself.

XANA's true form as it is dying.

The third and final incarnation of XANA was the spectre that appeared in "Fight to the Finish". The spectre itself had the unique ability to possess William in the real world, despite him being scanned by the supercomputer. The other unique feature is the misshapen Eye of XANA that appears on its torso, of which no other spectre has had. This spectre is assumed to be XANA's real-world form since it expressed pain that went in tandem with XANA's ultimate destruction.
