As a pack, we pursue the pity, for power, on the flee.

As a king, I was a clashing knight, couldn't you see?

As a wolf, I am white without any whispers;

And just for fun, I'm first fish, then first.

What am I?


HINTS:

Title:

I'm not in any related to John, but we do have something similar. Can't you see it?

Massive hint:

Just bust it!

Lines:

    $\begingroup$ I have a feeling this has to do with movies that John Cena is in... Like how he is a bigfoot in "Littlefoot" and you can't see them unless you're very lucky $\endgroup$ – Yout Ried Jan 23 at 16:00

You are:

Ghost.

Title:

You can't see John Cena and you also can't see a ghost.

As a pack, we pursue the pity, for power, on the flee.

Pac(k) ==> pacman ( C<... --> graphics of the game pacman)
When the pacman eats the power pellet, the ghosts flee as the pacman has the power to eat the ghosts.

As a king, I was a clashing knight, couldn't you see?

In Clash Royale (CR), the king is not able to see the royal ghost. The royal ghost deals a lot of damage, therefore is referred to as a clashing knight.

As a wolf, I am white without any whispers;

Game of Thrones (GT)
In Game of Thrones, the character Jon owns a wolf which is white in color named Ghost.
Also, Ghost moves around very quietly, matching the criteria without any whispers.

And just for fun, I'm first fish, then first.

Ghotiy spelling
An alternate and unusual spelling of fish is ghoti.
First merged with ghoti is ghost.
/f/ is pronounced as ffff, first sound of fish.

Just bust it!

Ever heard of The Ghostbusters? (A movie)

Alliteration?

As a pack, we pursue the pity, for power, on the flee.

pack, pursue, pity, power, begin with a [p] consonant sound.

As a king, I was a clashing knight, couldn't you see?

king, clashing, couldn’t, begin with a /k/ consonant sound.

As a wolf, I am white without any whispers;

wolf, white, without, whispers, begin with a [w] consonant sound.

And just for fun, I’m first fish, then first.

for, fun, first, fish, first, begin with a /f/ consonant sound.
