** ''Un''fortunately, that doesn't mean good things for its pantheon adversary, the [[Myth/ChineseMythology Chinese]] CelestialBureaucracy, who'd easily crush a well-defined enemy with a well-organized force - if there was something definite to organize against.

* WeAreStrugglingTogether: There are 6-11 different divine pantheons out there, all fighting a war against the Titans, but even against this singular goal, a good chunk of the pantheons can barely get along with ''themselves'', let alone each other. With individual Gods' plots, politics, agendas and rivalries often pitting [[RightHandVersusLeftHand them and their children against each other]] (and that's not counting [[FaceHeelTurn Titan-corrupted Scions]]), it's no wonder that often a Scion's biggest enemy is another Scion.

* HeroicLineage[=/=]InTheBlood: In first edition, Scions are expected to take after their divine parents in personality as well as ability, with the writeup for each god going into specifics. Since those specifics are intended for presumably-heroic player characters, the former trope is more likely to be played up than the latter. For instance, Scions of [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Set]] are known for doing DirtyBusiness, Scions of [[Myth/AztecMythology Tezcatlipoca]] stir up controversy for a cause, and Scions of [[{{Voudoun}} Kalfu]] are likely to be DrivenToVillainy troublemakers more than actually malicious. Those fathered by Caligula, who's detailed in the WWII supplement as the reason the Greek Gods are supporting the Axis, on the other hand, are just terrible people.

** Sun Wukong takes this to extremes. Most of his kids are the results of one night stands that he never even intended on making a scion from. So when someone mentions "Hey this kids chi really feels like yours...." he ends up hastily slaping together relics and sends them on their merry way.

** One of Br'er Rabbit's aliases is "Rascally Rabbit", heavily implying that you can make a Scion to ''WesternAnimation/BugsBunny!''

* GunsAreWorthless: In first edition, firearms are the only weapons that don't get stronger with high attributes, making them extremely weak in Demigod and higher. For some reason Bows and even Crossbows DO get a strength-bonus though. There are numerous fan-created Knacks and Boons that alleviate this, but thus far no canon ones.
