Hey, folks. Welcome to “Conquering the World in 5 Easy-ish steps!”
D-did I mess up that intro? Um, hold on… No, that’s what I wrote. Huh.
This comprehensive guide will teach even the most braindead newbies how to overthrow governments, or remind any old veteran how to assassinate a person of high power!
Hopefully these other earths have people of power.
So, sit down, grab your trophies of your dead enemy(ies), and grab your kettle corn popcorn (the best flavor)!
Oh, footnote, make sure you have a part of your dead enemy(ies) to keep as a trophy. I got a sweet leather jacket from this guy in Japan, among other things.
Step One: One of the most important steps! Find a reason to want to conquer the world. It’s honestly a waste of time if you don’t have any reason to do it. For example, if you want to get revenge on someone, or you don’t like your world. Or if you just want to have fun. That works too.
The kid looked at the trio of boys standing over him, then looked down at the dead body of his dog. “Why?” he asked, sobbing. The boys just sneered and smacked the kid with one of the bats they were holding. The kid fell over, stomach up, red stuff pouring out. “You should’ve taken better of your stupid dog, freak. He probably died at the first hit.” Then the trio turned and walked away in silence.
The kid stumbled home, sobbing. The second he opened the door, he was met by a belt to the side. When the kid stumbled and fell, the father kicked him in the stomach. “You little punk… What were you doing so late?” The kid woofed softly, and then drew a finger across his neck. “Tch,” The dad groaned, walking away. “The mutt was a waste of time, money, and food anyways.”
“Just like you.”
Step Two! Find how you’re going to conquer the world. I don’t know how other people
will do it, because I did it in a, um, special way. Build a big weapon, or something.
Wow, I’m helpful, huh? Heh.
The day the kid found his powers was the day he turned the quartet into a trio, and when
his parents became his parent. He woke up to his books in his room floating around him. But the
weird thing was that he could hear whispers. Crying. Screaming. They sounded small, as small
as his books. Then he realized. Was he… controlling the books? No, but he wasn’t special. It
The mother came into his room, happy, and stayed there, the only feeling being the stuff
going down her body. The father soon came in, and horrified, kicked the kid out of the house. The four neighbors, one girl, three boys, playing a game with a bunch of hologram
looked at him and waved. Getting no response, the girl went over to him. The kid could feel her
memories, taste her emotions, see her heart. But then the girl fell over. He could feel her shock,
fear, pain. He could feel the red stuff go down her body. He could feel her drowning in it. Until
he couldn’t. The now-trio looked at the kid. They called him names and wept. The kid was
Step Three: Conquer your world! Easier said than done, I know. This may require a bit of
training on your local neighborhood, but, y’know, a cozy neighborhood is nothing compared to
a world you’ll conquer.
And the bloodbath created will be nothing compared to sea of blood flowing down from a
conqueror’s glorious throne of unrivaled dictatorship. Of course, there is no crown without
Ahem. That was long.
The kid sat down in his no-longer-living father’s favorite chair and concentrated. He
could feel the emotions, secrets, and feelings. He could feel the beat of their hearts and the flow
of their blood. It’s funny, he thought, that even though the human body is so intricate, I could
just reach out.
Don’t kill anyone when you first try? Try again! Practice makes perfect, you know.
The kid walked over to his neighbor’s house and found the mother gasping for air. She
was drowning in red stuff, which was discovered to be called “blood”. The kid didn’t
even consider the woman’s begging or her sobbing. He reached out and, unlike with his mother,
which was killed with a curious tap, maddeningly squeezed. He could feel the blood flowing
down his self-named “Hand of Justice”. The heart stopped squirming. And the woman stopped
crying. The kid realized how odd it was. Quote-unquote good men in the 2000s, he thought, said
that people who hit women were emotionless and cruel. But why, then, did I feel…
Once you think you’re ready, head out into the world. It may take a little bit to kill your
first president or dictator, but relax. It took me a few days to get my first one. Research on them,
or kidnap someone close to them, if you must. I don’t like doing things like that, so I was off the
But a true conqueror would do whatever he could to get what he wants. Remember that.
The kid walked up onto the stage, not caring about the fear in the people’s eyes. He
walked up to the president with a birthday cake with a single lit candle out. The president called
for guards but all he got was silence. The kid started humming. Happy birthday to you, happy
birthday to you. The president wanted to move, scream, anything, but he couldn’t. She fell to his
knees and hung his head. She could hear her heart beat, beat, beat.
And she could feel the heat leave her body as the kid blew out the candle.
I should probably explain my gift, so it doesn’t seem like I’m making this up. I can reach
into anything’s soul, whether it alive or not, and do whatever I want with it. Listen to it, control
it, destroy it, you name it. I also can link souls. By that I mean that I can do whatever I want with
something if I do it with something else.
I don’t think that was a very good explanation.
For example, if I cut a cake in half…
The kid plucked the candle out and pulled out a kitchen knife. The audience was already
running away, but it was too late. The kid envisioned every single soul in the audience (which
were all screaming and whirling in panic) and imagined tying them to the cake’s unmoving soul,
like tying a shoelace. Then, wanting to make a good first impression, he asked the audience a
question as he cut through the cake.
“Have you made a wish yet?”
… I basically cut the attached person in half as well.
The kid walked through the pools of blood, coming from every half of the human. He sat
down on one of the chairs provided for the no-longer-living audience. He grinned from ear to
ear and started to laugh.
He was having the time of his life.
Step Fu-Fu-Fu-Four! Destroy your enemies mercilessly! Pesky enemies blocking your
way? Kill ‘em! Easy as pie. Well, maybe not that easy, but for me, it was like squashing a bug. Also, remember to stick to your goal. You’re a murderer, but, more importantly, a conqueror.
Days later, the boy walked through a destroyed Japanese city. He had controlled the
souls of everyone, forcing them to destroy everything, to good results. He had also gotten some
kettle corn popcorn, which was his new favorite food, and the only thing that he probably
wouldn’t destroy. He then heard a voice from above. “Hello.”. The kid looked up and muttered,
“Kami-sama? (God?)”. The voice said, “No. I am but a lost citizen. Would you mind keeping me
company for a bit?” The kid knew it was a lie. It didn’t take powers to see his anger in his eyes
and the price tag on his clean leather jacket. But the kid didn’t object.
The kid and the nice man walked through the countryside and up mountains before
stopping on a dead volcano. The kid didn’t really remember anything before the nice man held
him over the edge with a gun placed on the kid’s head. The man muttered something about a
successful trap, but the kid did not listen. He was too busy waking up the volcano.
When the volcano’s eruption was finished, and the nice man was naturally cremated, the
kid (who survived by willing anything hot to become less hot) put on the man’s jacket (which had
survived by being willed to withstand the eruption) and walked down the mountain again, eating
the popcorn he had put in a Ziploc in his pocket. He then sat down, legs dangling off another
edge, and pulled out a map of Japan. There, he scratched out the middle part of the big
island, and marked a path leading to his next destination- south to Maibara (which was weirdly
pronounced as “May-bar-a” as opposed to “My-bar-a”). Before putting the map away, the kid
looked over the rest of the map. He looked at the scratched Western Hemisphere, North America
more prominently scratched then other countries. Quickly averting his eyes, he closed the map
and made his way southward.
A month and a half later, the kid, now a teen, was eating a Left Twix (which was far more
superior than a Right Twix) inside a very important factory on a manmade island in the UK, which, at the time, was the most technologically advanced place in the whole world.
His world, at least.
Scientists have found that there are, in fact, multiple universes.
The kid was extremely ecstatic to hear this.
He had quickly conquered all of Africa, Asia, and Europe, and rushed to the factory. He
currently had the scientists work on the machine which would, hopefully, get him into another
The kid was also checking out his trophies. He had a dirty soccer ball signed by a pro
player, a scratched piece of the Liberty Bell, a bloody backpack made from anaconda skin, and
and limited-edition anime bobblehead, all of which were stolen from people who had tried to
attack him. He had fun fighting those people, and hoped that the new world would bring more
It was all that he lived for.
Step Five, last step! Don’t stop there! Are you done conquering your world? Have no
fear! Conquer another one! The scientists back in my old world told me that there is an infinite
number of worlds which are in the 40th century, the same century that I lived in. So, there’s hope
for you too, fellow conqueror.
Oh, by the way, I should be arriving at a new world soon. The scientists will send this
message a few hours before I hop in a warp device. So, uh, sorry if I conquer your world before
y’all can do something.
So, thanks for listening. It’s nice to take a break and talk for a bit, but I must go. My
popcorn is starting to burn. If you need more tips, call my help center.
Who am I kidding, I don’t have one.

The kid tapped this new world’s keyboard in wonder. There was so much to do. But, he
decided to search the new world web for the important things.
“Most populated areas”
He also killed a few guards and may have summoned the army. But, so goes the life of a
