[Demon of paradox, stuck in endless contradictions of Time and Space]

Background[edit]

  • In-game Version
  • Nexon Version

Add is now the demon of paradox, stuck in endless contradictions of Time and Space.

Perhaps it was a fatal side effect of his aimless traveling between parallel universes, but Add feels that his body has reached its limit.

Before his body completely disintegrates, he attempts one final forbidden experiment, which disintegrates him to molecular levels then tie his very being to the essence of Time and Space.

The only thing that remains is his obsessive desire to return to the only past in which he felt happiness.


Third Class Advancement[edit]

The energy within the cave was interesting, with El energy and henir energy mingling together. To find samples, Add finds himself deeper in the cave where he finds stronger monsters. Their bodies may come in handy for future experiments, so let's make sure not to annihilate them completely.

After the battle, Add finds himself at the entrance of the cave again.
He hears a voice… and this life signal…
Add turns to the cave again to confirm his suspicion, but Glave blocks his way. Glave "warns" him that there's no going back once he enters the cave. Even when Add threatens to physically remove him, Glave just laughs and disappears. In his place, various mutated beings came crawling at him. Let's eliminate these… things that's blocking his way.

  • Complete Mad Paradox 4/5

Add pulls out a flask with purple liquid and begins to drink out of it. He didn't need Glave's "warning." He already knew that his body could not withstand endless destruction through Time and Space. It was clear that his body has reached its limits with the last battle.
He recalls what the mysterious voice said. The most annoying out of them was when it called him a "failure."
Add's eyes began to lose focus. When he finally arrived in a past and saw his young happy self, he realized it's impossible to go back to his past. It was, is, an unachievable goal.
But the voice, his other self, flaunted it, calling him a failure as if he somehow managed to put that behind him.
Is it truly time to accept the fact that going back to his past is an unachievable goal?
Does he just follow a destined path of failure, repeating the inevitable?
No, there's no such thing as destined failure. Even if he has to destroy natural order, he will arrive at his own past!
That moment, Add's body and mind started to disintegrate. Using all his forbidden power, he barely manages to tie himself to this timeline before he scatters to pieces.
He can't say when he will disintegrate. Before that, he must meet with the mysterious figure. Add headed towards the sanctum. "He" was waiting for his answer at the heart of the sanctum.

Trivia[edit]

  • Mad Paradox and Herrscher are the only two playable characters that aren't really alive anymore in the usual sense. In Mad Paradox's case, he's become some sort of temporal enigma that exists everywhere and nowhere at once, his seemingly "physical" body appearing in flux, explaining his child-like default appearance.
    • As he appears in flux, parts of his body may appear as breaking or forming in and out of existence, more so in his True Form, as the back-story explains that it is reaching the limit of time travel.
    • The in-game model for Mad Paradox still retains the same size, despite his child-like appearance.
    • His younger body is still affected by the time travel disease on one eye, despite him only receiving it during his time as Time Tracer.
  • Mad Paradox's actual age is still the same as the other paths, as he shows in his True Form.
  • Prior to the Korean update on November 1, 2018, going into Configuration Mode (Awakening) even in his child-like form would cause both of Mad Paradox's sclera to turn black, just like Diabolic Esper.
  • The white shard floating right next to him in his portrait seems to display his mother from one of the alternate timelines.
  • Mad Paradox has a cat hood, which has returned after the Time Tracer job.
  • Upon advancing to Mad Paradox, Add's personality takes a drastic turn from being a loud and manic class to a more subdued and nihilistic one, as shown in his new voice lines and backstory.
    • His facial expression is also changed to blank stare with half-opened eyes.
  • Mad Paradox's Job Change Item, Mad Paradox's Shattered Flask, might refer to the flask of poison from the Schrödinger's cat experiment.
  • Mad Paradox's scar on the left side of his face grows while in True Form.
  • The NA-translated tooltip in the combos seems to have been mistaken swapped. Currently the ones on the wiki are edited to match the combo description.
