Rumor / Community Lore
This article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community. It is just one of many Rumors that we've found in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill. You can find more Rumors about Famous Owens at their Rumor Registry.

It has recently become an unspoken, yet widely carried belief that Famous Owens is, in fact, Zeus in a very poor disguise. The only reason that this rumor seems to be unspoken is that even uttering the name "Zeus" in Hades can lead to being sentenced to ten thousand days and nights in the river Phlegethon.

Reasons cited for this belief:

  • On two separate occasions, Owens appears to have thrown bolts of lightning in place of the standard blaseball. Both pitches were considered balls, as they could not be considered to have crossed the plate.
  • Occasionally, Owens seems to turn to people deciding which of the numerous zoos in Hades to go visit, and then ask who was talking to him.
  • When drinking, Owens tends to like to ramble about "that one time they turned into golden rain."
  • When asked if they were surprised about winning their second straight Internet Series in Season 4, they responded by saying "Absolutely not! How could we lose with the mighty Zeu.... zooming Zion Aliciakeyes on our team?"

It is also widely theorized that Hades himself is in no way fooled by Owens' shoddy disguise and in fact, Hades keeps Owens around in hopes that they will be incinerated by a rogue umpire.
