Immorality: All Elders of the Universe are immortal. Death has decreed that they may never enter her realm. The Champion could theoretically be stopped for an unknown amount of time by reducing him to less then his atomic base and spreading him across the galaxy. In time he can ever recover from this traumatic an injury however.

Martial Artist: Tryco is possibly the greatest warrior in the entire galaxy having practiced his technique since the birth of the universe. He gains bonus fighter feats as a fighter of his hit die and unarmed damage and feats as a monk of his hit die.

  • Slatterus retains his Dexterity bonus while flat footed.
  • Slatterus is never considered flanked.
  • The Champion doubles the threat range of his unarmed attacks.
  • Missing the Champion with a melee attack provokes an attack of opportunity from him.
  • The Champion gains a +20 bonus to attack and damage rolls when fighting unarmed.
  • The Champion gains a +15 bonus to Climb, Jump and Tumble.

Power Primordial: The Champion is infused with the power primordial the cosmic essence of the universe. He has focused all of his energy into his physical abilities ranking him among one of the most powerful beings to ever live. The Champion gains enormous benefits from the focus of his cosmic energies.

  • The Champion does not need to breath, eat, drink or sleep. He is able to survive in the vacuum of space or any other environment without ill effect.
  • The Champion is immune to exhaustion and fatigue.
  • The Champion can communicate with any intelligent creature and is able to speak and be heard through unknown means even in space.
  • All natural attacks of the champion are considered to be adamantium and epic.
  • As a swift action the Champion can grant himself super speed Level 10. This lasts for 10 minutes or until he dispels it. The Champion cannot grant himself speed for an hour after he has done so.

Superhuman Strength: The Champion is suspected to be the strongest being in the universe, he has been known to destroy an entire planet with a single punch. The Champion can lift 1,000 times what his strength score indicates. He very well may possess greater strength then this his limits have never been reached.

The Champion receives a +5 bonus to damage for each -1 penalty he takes to his attack rolls during a Power Attack.

The extreme power of the Champion allows him to crush planets into dust. He inflicts x100 to objects he strikes. Despite this ability he normally will not use it in one-on-one combat preferring to defeat an enemy using all of their abilities against him.

Drawbacks: The Champion possesses very strong psychological inhibitions against killing. During a battle with the Thing, the Champion had beaten him within an inch of his life. The Thing would not submit and, as a result, the Champion submitted, realizing he would have to kill the Thing in order to win.

The Power Primordial is channeled through the Elders of the Universe and sustains them only through their very desire and will to continue to exist in persuing their various interests. The Champion’s interests, of course, being fighting, training to fight, and seeking opponents to fight. If the Champion were to grow disinterested in his pursuits and chose not to continue them, he could potentially die as a result, although since Death decreed no Elder could ever enter her realm, this may no longer be true.
