Upon his creation, the Chosen One was nothing more than a rage-fuelled, sadistic and megalomaniac being. Any chance to destroy his creator, he took, killing other entities as easily as walking and not caring about anything else. When he was defeated by the Antivirus software, he was still filled with anger but could do nothing to escape. Forced to work as an anti-ad software, his anger grew until he saw freedom and took it. The Chosen One escaped and began to rain down his anger upon Noogai and killing more entities such as AOL and Firefox just to kill his creator.
When the Dark Lord was created, he initially saw him as a more powerful threat and battled him, eventually defeating him. However, he saw that Noogai didn't care that either he or the Dark Lord died and decided to join forces with him. Together they destroyed Noogai's computer and began a reign of destruction on other websites and games.
The Chosen One however reflected upon his destructive wrath when seeing the Dark Lord murder innocent stick figures in Stickpage and characters in Newgrounds and create a powerful virus with extreme killing potential. Seeing the virus about to be fired at Noogai's computer and the potential destruction releasing the virus may create, he grew remorseful and reflected on his past. Despite the time they fought and fought, the Chosen One decided to forgive Noogai, acknowledging him as his creator and eventually battled the Dark Lord, who insisted Noogai continue to suffer. He finds and battles the Virus to save the Second Coming's company and bowed to Noogai as a sign of self-impeachment, ending his long grudge.
