Halo is the informal name of a sci-fi video game series produced by Bungie on the Xbox, Xbox 360, and PC. It follows a war between humanity and an alien alliance known as the Covenant. The exploits of a super-soldier known primarily as Master Chief have been the primary focus of the series.
Series Information Edit
To sum up very briefly: Master Chief, also known as John-117, is a super-soldier in the United Nations Space Command SPARTAN Program. While helping to battle the Covenant, he and other UNSC soldiers discover a ring in space, which turns out to be an ancient superweapon designed to wipe out all sentient life in the galaxy. They were built to combat the Flood, a parasitic life form intent on assimilating everything in its path.
The series itself spans six games and multiple tie-in products, including novels and comics. Three of the games (Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2 and Halo 3) have Master Chief as the player character. Halo 3: ODST has the player acting as an Orbital Drop-Ship Trooper rather than a SPARTAN. Halo: Reach, the final game to be produced by Bungie, has a SPARTAN known as Noble Six as the player character. Halo Wars has no primary playable character, since it is a real-time strategy game.

Red vs BlueEdit
Red vs Blue is a spin-off series that uses the Halo video game engine as a form of animation. It follows two constantly fighting teams (Red and Blue, obviously) who become involve in a large military conspiracy. Red vs Blue has had nine full seasons and several mini-series, enough to establish its own canon.
Common Sue TraitsEdit
- SPARTANs not mentioned in canon. They may have special abilities and/or non-canon armor colors (not green, grey or black).
- Sucked into the game from the real world. They may then become SPARTANs or fight alongside them. Naturally, the canons trust them and don't force them to divulge the future despite plenty of canon evidence that the UNSC leadership is Not Nice and views survival as taking precedence over morality.
- Sues will almost always be SPARTAN IIs, due to them being the most powerful and famous SPARTAN with the best armor in the continuum. The SPARTAN Is were considered failures with a few exceptions while the SPARTAN IIIs are effectively super suicide soldiers that have effectively watered-down versions of the SPARTAN IIs augmentations and power armor.
Agents Native to the Haloverse Edit
- Cornelius, an artificial intelligence working in the DIAU, is originally from the Haloverse.
- Jake, a former UNSC Marine, is a Haloverse inhabitant who works in Floaters.
- Zerenze, an Elite who works at DoSAT, is also originally from the Haloverse.
