Official League Records

The Hades Tigers are two-time Internet League Champions thanks to their victories in Season 3 and Season 4.

The Tigers had arguably the strongest roster in the league during Season 3 and Season 4, with the highest overall star count for both lineup players and pitchers at the start of the latter. This roster was in part assembled by stealing players, with both Jessica Telephone and Mclaughlin Scorpler having been taken from their previous teams via blessings. However, Jessica was lost midway through season 4 to Feedback.

During the Season 4 elections, the Tigers received the Solidarity blessing, boosting the team's maximum vibes by 15%. However, 5-star pitcher Yazmin Mason was rerolled by the Alternate Reality decree into a 2.5 star pitcher. During Season 5, the team also played under the effects of the Targeted Shame blessing, forcing them to start the next match after being shamed with negative runs.

The loss of Jessica Telephone and Yazmin Mason was compounded by losing Fish Summer to feedback in season 6, and then losing a devastating four players to incinerations caused by Jaylen Hotdogfingers in season 7, pushing the Tigers out of playoff contention for the first time in the team's history. In the elections, the Tigers won Paracausal Event and Pretty Plz, rerolling Richmond Harrison and Spears Taylor and providing a 4% overall hitting boost, helping set them on the path to recover from these losses. In the Season 8 elections, the Tigers won Anti-Burnout, making them immune to incineration in Season 9, Composite sending Nagomi Meng to the Shadows, and Blind Date, trading Spears Taylor for Aldon Cashmoney.

Team Overview

COMMUNITY LORE

The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.

For a more in-depth look at the team, see Hades Tigers/History.

The Tigers play at Sixth Circle Stadium (also called "The Amphitheater" or "The Orpheum" by some locals), located in the heart of downtown Tartarus, Hades.

Hades, god of the underworld, publicly presents himself as the owner of the Tigers. He uses the team as a means of promoting his brand in order to attract more worshippers. Legally, Persephone is listed as the owner, but this may be a tax evasion scheme by Hades.

The team is technically called the Hades Tiger's, as evidenced by the "Many stripes! One tiger!" chant commonly heard during games. Due to a typography error in a bulk merchandise order, this fact is little-known and rarely respected by other teams.

Staff

Mascots

The current Hades Tigers mascot is a mysterious spirit referred to by many names, most commonly The Presence. It is said to haunt Sixth Circle Stadium, and fans report many anecdotal, unconfirmed, and wildly contradictory sightings of it.

When the team was founded, Dave the Devil was originally planned to be their mascot. These plans were cancelled after the costume (and the intern inside) were found ripped to shreds, covered in claw and bite marks consistent with a tiger attack.

Fan Culture

Never Look Back

The Hades Tigers’ slogan, “Never Look Back,” is emblematic not just of their pitching strategy, which leaves them open to second base being stolen at an alarming frequency, but a way of life. A typical Hades Tiger fan will refuse to dwell on their past failings or answer questions about historical events more than a few days old. The Tigers are also strongly opposed to necromancy.

The Tigers are known for having several player-specific chants, which can be found here.

Tigers fans and Hellmouth Sunbeams fans are close allies, often rooting for the other team. This relationship is often described as an "antirivalry."
