The "Watchmen" were not an organization like the CWCProtectSquad or the Guard Dogs. Rather, like how the "Patriots" was the name given to a clique of trolls, "Watchmen" was the name given to a group of Chris enablers and white knights that had befriended one another, and run various Discord servers, by one of its members. The WCT, one of its members, was also considering dropping the name when he created the Knights of CWC

The Watchmen (sometimes mistakenly refered to as "the Watchdogs") were a clique of fanatical enablers whose members served as gatekeepers and white knights for Chris. Their goal was to keep away malicious individuals trying to troll or scam Chris. In practice, however, the clique was highly aggressive towards outsiders coming into contact with Chris whether they demonstrated malice or not. Watchmen members tracked and collected information on anyone involved with - or attempting to get involved with - Chris, and had little hesitation in regards to doxing any potential weens, trolls, and A-logs. Hostilities were occasionally shown in the form of feuds, with rumors and disinformation spread by members MKRNightVee, Naught, The WCT, and XIII on their perceived enemies, or raids by various Watchmen members. Infighting ran rampant, with the group splintering into a few iterations over internal conflicts. With Chris currently jailed for incest, their purpose has become moot.
Their approach was rather controversial, as they gained Chris's favor by means of enabling his delusions by pretending to be fellow CPU goddesses and encouraging his beliefs in magical thinking and the Dimensional Merge. Another tactic they used was in drawing fanart for him, typically for fantasy immersion - such art features Chris or Watchmen members in CPU or Sonichu forms; the art was usually drawn by either MKRNightVee or AquaDiamond8. They have also made use of the OC Lainchu, played by at least four members of the group.
As a faction, the Watchmen were involved in several events over the course of late 2019 onwards, such as attempting to dismantle Jacob Sockness’s influence over Chris and drive him off. They also shut down the Arbitarch CWC Alliance Discord server from Naught's allegation that the server was being used to gather content. Chris had contact with the Watchmen, including chatting with them on Google Hangouts and over Discord. The Watchmen were also behind the Discord leaks in August 2020, and the Discord Q&As.
The group existed in various forms from 2019-2021 and was given its current name on August 2020 by Klop, as a reference to the 1986/1987 DC Comics limited series by Alan Moore, David Gibbons, and John Higgins. However, the Watchmen themselves did not model their online personas after characters from the DC franchise, in contrast to how The Miscreants presented themselves as a shadowy cabal like the Patriots from their inspiration, Metal Gear. Rather, many of its members modeled their personas after fanmade CPU Goddesses.
What eventually became the Watchmen group had its roots in the CWC Rebellion Discord server, a trolling group. There, Owls met Meghan (aka MKRNightVee or MKR), and Talia (whom Owls described as "a person exploiting and egging MKR on to talk to Chris").
After MKR had been in contact with Chris for some time, Owls came up with the idea to try to manipulate Chris's beliefs away from the Dimensional Merge through telling him that the CPU goddesses had relocated to Earth. MKR recruited her friends to role-play as CPUs to Chris over Discord; Owls acted as a gatekeeper between MKR's friends and Chris.
|“||time passed talking with Meghan for about a month or so there came an idea from me in the most autistic way possible "convince Chris that merge wasn't happening and that CPU had decided to be on earth and act like normal people in society". foolishly believing this would work Meghan gathered some people from different servers she said we could trust and we made a server. this idea failed and when the first person decided to brag about it on a different discord I shut down the idea.||”|
According to Naught, Owls acted as liaison between the CPU group and Marvin of the Guard Dogs group (the latter also being gatekeepers to Chris at the time) but Naught claimed that Owls wasn't reporting back to Marvin. Owls later left the group.
The Watchmen group revealed its presence in August 2020. The reveal was seemingly spurred by a video Chris secretly produced on 6 August, Chris's Last Will and Testament, which he decided to share with the Watchman member Naught. Concerned over the contents of the video, a CWCki account was made by Naught and the video leaked to the public. Days later, on 10 August, Naught entered the Official CWCki Server and leaked a large amount of material Chris had shared with the group over the past year. He then invited Chris into the server to take fan questions (though moderators decided to remove Chris from the server four days later).

The Watchmen hosted various untrusted guests such as Jacob Sockness, Praetor, the Suitress, and Bella in their Discord servers, assigning them to the First Layer of channels which Chris and themselves could view, and blocking them from viewing the Second Layer, where the Watchmen could discuss them in private.
The Watchmen group was prone to infighting.
In November-December 2020, MKRNightVee, upset upon discovering she had been demodded from the Official CWCki Server, threw a tantrum at Anaxis, then-owner of the server, attempting to goad him into returning the role to her. Anaxis declined to do so, explaining she had been demodded by his predecessor for lack of activity in the server.
On 28 June 2021, in the wake of more infighting between Naught and The WCT, which stemmed from Naught posting The WCT's dox for declining to share his Kiwi Farms account, the former Watchmen member Spunky wrote an account on the website lolcow.org alleging that Naught had used her Kiwi Farms account for his own purposes and that she was consistently belittled by both Naught and MKR in their server.
Rationalizations for Enabling
Some Watchmen have come to rationalize why they enable Chris.
In a 9 March 2021 Discord Chat; MKR, Kyle, and an unknown Watchman were discussing that they needed to enable Chris with his delusions for his own safety, as they believed that "he wouldn't last long".

Joseph Draft planned a documentary project titled Chris Chan VS. The Internet. He made arrangements and filmed footage with Chris before the documentary was cancelled. According to Naught, Draft destroyed the drive with the footage over stress from Megan changing her mind about being included and other YouTubers trying to monetize it, and that Naught had "a 4 hour conversation" with Draft in which he got him "to face dox himself once he destroyed his drive with chris vs the internet."
In February 2021, Chris wanted to borrow Praetor's taser in order to tase his Gate Crystal and Celestial Key quartz crystals, believing this would open an interdimensional portal and bring about the Dimensional Merge. The Watchmen objected to this plan, to which Praetor member Caden claimed they would supervise Chris and that he would not be at risk.
Naught made a Kiwi Farms post in which he posted a clip from the Taser Discussion voice chat. In the clip, Watchmen member Val states, "Can you put, 'Can CWC- uh, like, tase himself on video for lulz'." Chris then responds, "I'll do it," to which Val bursts out laughing. Praetor member Caden then objects, saying, "Look, are you sure- There- they- like, we had a whole discussion about why it's a bad idea."
In Naught's Kiwi Farms post, he alleged that "Caden and cwc as Sonichu prime discuss the tazer and who will be tazed", omitting that Watchmen member Val had brought up the subject and that Caden had objected.
MKR posted on Twitter to spread a rumor that Praetor wanted to get Chris to use a stun gun on himself. She gave no proof of the allegation, instead posting an out-of-context screenshot from Watchmen-Praetor talks.
The Christuber GiBi believed the Watchmen's spin, creating a video in which he erroneously attributed the members in Naught's clip to Praetor - including the Watchmen Val - as well as reading from MKR's tweet. Chris viewed the video and claimed the taser to have been his own idea, defending Praetor.
The Watchmen's primary platform for reaching out to Chris and people that they suspected as being weens was Discord.
Both The Place and The Knights of CWC Discord servers were structured to have two layers of channels. The Watchmen assigned roles to server members to allow them to view certain layers.
The First Layer included a General channel for Chris to chat in. Chris and the Watchmen's Untrusted Guests could view and post only in the First Layer.
The Second Layer included a channel for discussion of Chris. The layer was hidden from Chris and Untrusted Guests to enable the Watchmen to hold discussions.
Below are a list of several of the Discord Servers that were created for the iniative of the Watchmen.

This was from before the Watchmen had fully come out to the public. The server was eventually shut down.

- Main article: Regarding Chris chats
Regarding Chris was a group chat created by The WCT with some of the other Watchmen members from The Knights of CWC server on 30 July 2021. Its purpose was to question Bella about her role in the Incest Call leak, since she had been named by Null as a person involved. However, the move backfired as during the chat, Bella made claims that were later deemed disinformation by observers, such as framing the Suitress for being the voice in the call[note 1] and alleging her fabricated BDSM texts to be legitimate and goading WCT to disseminating the material and naming the Suitress as his source.
The full chat was later leaked.
