The Invictus Analysis is a web series published by TTV. Hosted by Tenebrae Invictus, it centers around Invi reviewing games centered around the BIONICLE franchise, official or fanmade.
The Invictus Analysis is an alternative history series in which Invi educates viewers of how the online BIONICLE games came into being as well as a review of the game. Throughout the course of the series, the audience learns pieces of Invi’s childhood and his personal experiences interacting with BIONICLE and trying to balance his Youtube career and reality. Presented in a somewhat monotone and matter of fact way, the series tackles the real issues that plagued BIONICLE throughout the years.

The Invictus Analysis is currently comprised of 17 episodes, with one scheduled for release. While it is one of the longest running series on the channel, the long lifespan comes from the infrequent releases that began after one of Invi's moves to Thailand. It initially had a strong run it its debut year of 2013, but has seen sparse releases since then.
In 2016, Invi released a one off continuation but did not resume creating the Analysis or any other videos until the beginning of 2018. The main reason is a lack of motivation for a series he doesn't find all too amusing to make anymore, compounded by a busy work/school schedule. Another reason was that he wanted to avoid contractual release obligations and giving the series a more 'corporate' feel, but eventually compromised with some of the design (see: Intro/end screen as well as formal thumbnail for Island Investigation).
However difficult it may be for him, Invi seems to persist and he slowly continues to take the Analysis to completion.
- In this series, we find out Invi had a third biological grandmother who was a prisoner during WWII.
- The longest gap between episodes was Piraka Attack (Oct 2014) and Voya Nui Adventure (Oct 2016). Multiple theories exist to explain the gap. In TTV Episode 100 Invi said he would be on hiatus to be a missionary for two years. The second theory is that Invi decided to end his series after his dispute with Phweff at the end of his Piraka Attack video. However, Invi has attempted to dispel such rumors with a vague analogy, saying he had merely decided to hang up his coat for a little bit.
- Akin to Invi being on podcasts from the most locations, The Invictus Analysis is the series that has been produced from the most amount of different places.
