'''Narrative, Storytelling and Tropes'''

This house is commissioned by O-Haruhi-sama as a big library where stories are told from everyone's perspectives (including her own).

It connects in the middle with the Houses of Pantheon/{{Magic}} and Pantheon/{{Knowledge}}. Some of their residents used to belong in the [[Pantheon/{{Theater}} House of Theater]] as a result of the separation.

The Book of Trope is localized right here.

* Fanboying Towards: [[Pantheon/{{Technology}} Kotaro Minami/Kamen Rider Black (RX)]].
* High Priests: Creator/HideakiAnno and Creator/YasukoKobayashi
* Many Deities are impressed that his involvement on ''Puella Magi Madoka Magica'' is the reason why his underlings ascended to the Pantheon in first place.
* He's impressed that most of the Armored Riders of Zawame joined to the ranks of the Pantheon, which is pretty meaningful, since Urobuchi is a Kamen Rider fan too.
* After the "Great Upheaval" unfolded, Urobuchi was the first one everyone blamed. To everyone's shock, [[{{MisBlamed}} he WASN'T behind it.]]
** In hindsight, of course he wasn't, [[spoiler:[[EveryoneLives there were nowhere near enough deaths in it]].]]
* He used to occupy the throne of Massive Casualties in the House of Pantheon/LifeAndDeath, but was swiftly booted from his position following The Great Upheaval: [[spoiler: not only did all five of the main characters survived, he managed to ''resurrect'' a sixth one.]] He was replaced by Yoshiyuki Tomino (the TropeNamer, who was finally compelled to take the job after months of negotiating to keep his damn mecha pilots in line) and reassigned to this position, as his ability to deconstruct genres are second to none.
* Has a Reality Marble known as Dead End Catharsis: Heaven & Hell Drop, which lowers the luck of all characters in his stories by one rank. Urobuchi's ascension to the Pantheon allowed it to affect ''any'' character. Be afraid. Be ''very'' afraid.
* Has learned of the problems caused by both Kureshima brothers, aka "Project: Alternate Gentaro", but has decided to watch everything unfold, trusting that [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall whoever is writing the story]] knows what they are doing. He did feel sympathy for Takatora (who is currently stuck under a MindRape in the asylum), and felt slightly creeped out at what happened to Mitsuzane (his head sliced off and stuffed into his stomach), but knows that the truth will come to light. He just hopes that none of the other Gaim gods get into any more trouble--he's already having enough with the Great Upheaval and Pantheonic Rebellion as it was!
* For the longest time, his and several of his underlings' followers fought over a seemingly endless debate. Eventually, he got tired of it and staked his claim: [[spoiler:[[http://imgur.com/a/vS1Ya "Homura is Best Girl."]]]] While many were happy to hear [[WordOfGod his opinion]], many started to [[FanonDiscontinuity foam at the mouth]] because of what he said.
* This is his definition of happy end, sort of, according to [[VideoGame/FateGrandOrder Chaldea development]]:
-->''“Can’t I have this character kill this other character and end it there?”''

[[folder:Haruhi Suzumiya]]
'''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya, Goddess of {{Tropes}}''' (The Unstoppable Force, [[FanNickname O-Haruhi-sama]])

** Other Allies: [[Pantheon/{{Advertising}} Konata Izumi]], [[Pantheon/{{Characterization}} Patricia Martin]], [[Pantheon/{{School}} Miu Kazashiro]], [[Pantheon/{{Mindsets}} Abed]] [[Pantheon/{{Storytelling}} Nadir]], [[Pantheon/ElementalFive Miyuki Hoshizora]], [[Pantheon/MainHouseOtherGods1 Trope]][[Pantheon/AnalysisAndRecords -Tan]] [[Pantheon/{{Mentalities}} The]] [[Pantheon/LoveOther ESP]] [[Pantheon/PhysicalAppearance Research Society]], [[Pantheon/MusicalCompositions Muse]].
* Extremely Complicated Relationship with: [[Pantheon/MentalismOther The Spy]]
* Enemies: [[Pantheon/OtherWeaponTropes Yui Ikari]], [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Yuuki Terumi]], [[Pantheon/NiceAndNasty Monaca Towa]].
* Much like how the Roman pantheon absorbed those around it, if a fictional group believe in a supreme creator, [[WMG/GrandUnifyingGuesses they're probably thinking about Haruhi]].
* OddFriendship: [[Pantheon/SupportiveCombat Yoruichi Shihouin]].
* [[OfficialCouple Probably]] [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend Not Kyon's girlfriend]].
* A good friend of Adam Young, much to the dismay of Heaven and Hell.
* Some sects believe Haruhi's position rightfully belongs to Sasaki. But since Sasaki herself does not desire this or any other position in the pantheon, this would be a moot heresy[[note]][[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} *blam*]][[/note]]. Likewise, another [[WildMassGuessing group of schismatics]] believe Kyon is the true God of Tropes. He pretends not to hear them.
* Haruhi always keeps her trusty ResetButton, which has caused StatusQuoIsGod numerous times, such as how [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} Shinji Ikari]]'s moments of happiness [[YankTheDogsChain get]] [[KickTheDog cut short]] from her pressing it.
** That is until an [[MamaBear enrage]] Yui Ikari stormed through the Main House and almost killed her. Even though she didn't succeed, Yui did destroy the Reset Button, freeing her son.
* She is considered to be the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=27&v=8Tc7MH5ZXbg greatest shipmaster]] in the Pantheon. Many gods have been traumatized as a result.
* She is responsible for revealing the Spy inside the Main House and as a result, allowed him to stay but is forced to follow her while doing so.
* She may have a bit of an ego, but deep down she does care about those around her. Unless you're her enemy.
* Haruhi rejoices at her return to the mortals of the United States with the release of her adventures on DVD and Blu-Ray, and legal streaming September 13th, 2016, after a long time of being away and legally unavailable.
* She is also a member of the Holy Trinity in the Pantheon/MainHouse.

[[folder:Terry Pratchett]]
'''[[Creator/TerryPratchett Terry]] [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Pratchett]], God of Trope Identification[[note]][[FootnoteFever and Footnotes]][[/note]]''' (Pterry, Professor Sir Terence David John Pratchett OBE, [=DLit=], [=DLit=], [=DLit=], [=DLit=], [=DLit=], Blackboard Monitor)
* Overdeity
* Symbol: Four giant elephants standing atop an extremely giant turtle
* Alignment: Chaotic Good
* Portfolio: [[SubvertedTrope Subversions]], [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructions]], {{Lampshade Hanging}}s, [[JustifiedTrope Justifications]]
* Domains: Creation, Death, Trickery
* Followers: Gilgamesh (''Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh''), Akira Takano (''Manga/SchoolRumble''), Othar Tryggvassen, Gentleman Adventurer! (''Webcomic/GirlGenius''), Literature/ThursdayNext
* Rivals: [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Tarquin]] [[UnknownRival thinks he's this]]. He's never really caught on to why Pterry plays with tropes just for the fun in identifying them, not for gaining power and undying fame through controlling them. Tarquin really doesn't get the point of being a Bard ''at all''. Which is one reason it really isn't a rivalry, beyond the massive power difference between them and Pterry not even being bothered in the least by a WrongGenreSavvy BigBadWannabe.
* Created the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality, the principle which ALL fictional realities have to one degree or another.
* Shed his mortal coil in 12 March 2015 so he could dedicate more time to the fabric of narrative[[note]]some sort of greenish-yellow purple gossamer[[/note]] itself. According to the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality, this automatically earned him a promotion to Overdeity[[note]]thus recursively confirming his RealityWarper powers[[/note]].
* As a tribute to Terry Pratchett, [[VideoGame/{{Dota2}} the Radiant and the Dire Ancients]] decided to put their differences aside for a while to create a new artifact with some help from the Discworld. The Octarine Core. From this day forth, heroes of both the Radiant and the Dire sides may build it to show their gratitude for Terry.
* Also has seats on the Pantheon/MainHouse and the House of Pantheon/{{Philosophy}}.

!Ambiguous Rank

[[folder:Keel Lorenz]]
'''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Keel Lorenz]], God of [[MinorMajorCharacter Important Tertiary Characters]] and Divine Head of the OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness'''
* Rank: [[EpilepticTrees Uncertain]]
* Symbol: A monolith with SEELE's emblem embedded on it
* Alignment: LawfulEvil (sees himself as LawfulGood)
* Portfolio: [[TheManBehindTheMan The Man Behind SEELE]], [[BigBad Eva's True Antagonist]], [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness Ambiguously Characterized Conspiracies]] [[EpilepticTrees Incredibly Speculative Figures]], [[AssimilationPlot Will Unite Everyone As One Being]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist To End Pain Everywhere]], [[{{Cyborg}} Robotic Attachments]], [[MinorMajorCharacter Minor Major Characters]], [[spoiler:[[TheBadGuyWins Succeeds at Instrumentality]] ([[MindScrew maybe]], [[AndIMustScream maybe not]]) ]]
* Domains: Ambiguity, Conspiracies, Philosophy, Extremism
* Allies: [[Pantheon/{{Sadness}} The White]], [[Pantheon/{{Contempt}} Lysandre]]
** Former allies: [[spoiler:[[Pantheon/MentalismOther Gendo Ikari]] ]]
** [[UnwittingPawn Unwitting Pawns]]: [[EpilepticTrees God only knows]]
* Enemies: '''[[Pantheon/{{Touring}} AZ]]''', [[Pantheon/{{Ambiguity}} Lucifer]], [[Pantheon/{{Faith}} YHVH]], [[Pantheon/ValuesAndEthics The Emperor of Mankind]], [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} The Chaos Gods]], [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Yuuki Terumi]], [[Pantheon/{{War}} Treize]] [[Pantheon/{{Personality}} Khushrenada]], [[Pantheon/RangedWeapons Okita]]
* Opposed by: The entire Grand United Alliance of Chaos
* Keel Lorenz is a mysterious figure; almost nothing is know of him prior to Second Impact. Some say he is the WanderingJew, waiting all this time to end pain. Others say [[AGodAmI he wants to ascend to godhood.]] He claims that he's [[EvilOldFolks sixty-seven.]] No-one's sure, but it is known he was active before Second Impact and essentially leads his version of Earth since then. Publically, [[BitchInSheepsClothing he leads NERV to "save" humanity from]] [[EldritchAbomination the Angels.]] In reality, he just doesn't want them to mess up [[spoiler:the Human Instrumentality Project]].
* As head of SEELE, ''the'' OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness, Keel Lorenz wants to keep the full extent of his organization's power ambiguous. He will often spin contradictory tales of [[AncientConspiracy its age]] and [[GovernmentConspiracy reach]], all part of a misinformation campaign to eliminate leads. No matter how powerful he is, one thing is certain: ''[[MindScrew no-one]]'' knows
* Keel Lorenz spends most of his time dwelling in the Council of Shadows, which many believe he funded. [[EpilepticTrees Due to mass speculation involving his group]], he has issued a "cease and desist" order from the House of Wild Mass Guessing, for continuing to pester him.
--> "It's been over twenty goddamn years, leave me alone!"
* Keel got along well with The White, agreeing that something drastic must be taken to end the misery of humanity. They do disagree on whether they should [[OmnicidalManiac be completely wiped out]] or "merely" [[AssimilationPlot be robbed of independence.]] Their goals are similar enough for them to settle arguments civilly.
* Lysandre is intrigued by the idea of Instrumentality, seeing it as a good way to solve the Malthusian Dilemna.
* Lorenz detests "parasitic gods" who perpetuate human misery. Part of why he wants to [[AssimilationPlot rob mankind of his identity]] is so that the likes of the Chaos Gods or YHVH/Lucifer can never inflict suffering towards them.
* [[BerserkButton NEVER compare Keel Lorenz to]] YHVH. SEELE wishes to [[EvilutionaryBiologist reach humanity's next step in evolution]], not [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill turn them into the eternal slaves]] [[GodIsEvil of a deific monster.]]
* Desiring to end suffering [[AssimilationPlot in his own way]], Lorenz opposes the likes of Yuuki Terumi, who he believes [[EvenEvilHasStandards gives conspirators a bad name.]] Terumi isn't impressed by this, calling him and his organization "the shittiest bunch of [[GenericDoomsdayVillain generic]] conspiratards ever."
* The Emperor of Mankind has it out for SEELE, as their [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum "assimilation tantrum"]] as a complete dead end for human progress. Witnessing the world of Warhammer 40000, Keel was ever more convinced.
--> Keel Lorenz: "Tell me oh [[WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice great Man-Emperor]], is my [[spoiler:Instrumentality]] truly worse than [[CrapsackWorld the Imperium's galaxy?]] [[HannibalLecture What's the point of fighting us when]] [[ViciousCycle in the grim darkness of the 41st millennium]], '''[[ForeverWar there will never be peace?!]]'''"
** That being said, SEELE and the Imperium will have an EnemyMine situation when fighting the Chaos Gods, [[Pantheon/MainHouse YHVH, or Lucifer]].
* AZ ''hates'' Keel Lorenz. He knows what it's like [[WarIsHell to feel utter despair]] and [[HumansAreBastards degradation of humanity]], but after so long refuses to believe [[spoiler:Instrumentality]] is ever the option. No-one should die for the sake of alleviating your own personal pain.
* [[DependingOnTheWriter May be]] the WanderingJew himself. Keel at least likes to pretend he's the WanderingJew, in what's thought to partly be an attempt to remove AZ from the pantheon. So far, it hasn't gotten anywhere.
* Despite being [[BigBad the source of all trouble]] in the NGE-verse, [[MinorMajorCharacter almost no-one even knows he exists.]] Gendo [[TheHeavy worked as their face]], [[spoiler:at least until he decided [[DragonWithAnAgenda to pursue his own desires]] [[{{Necromantic}} of resurrecting Yui.]] ]]
* Also present in the House of Pantheon/{{Philosophy}}.

* Opposes: [[Pantheon/ElementsAndNatureOther Kyogre and Groudon]], [[AnIcePerson ice-related deities]], the House of Toxicity, anyone and anything that'd threaten the ecosystem
* On speaking terms with: The House of Pantheon/LifeAndDeath
* Xerneas, the Life Pokémon. Yveltal, the Destruction Pokémon. Between the two is the Order Pokémon and [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil the balance of life and death]], Zygarde. This [[EldritchAbomination Lovecraftian]] [[OurDragonsAreDifferent wyrm]] initially seemed like a rather bog standard legendary, having little relevance to the plot of [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY X and Y]]. It wasn't even close to the power of its supposed trio members. However it ended up getting expanded on massively [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} in the anime]], with further lore showing up [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon in future generations]]. It now takes the role as the deity of AdaptationExpansion.
* Zygarde is not a single entity, but a collective HiveMind of cells. These flatworm-like creatures have no brain of their own, and are commanded by both instinct and the five Zygarde Cores. Each of these cores must gather up a certain amount of cells to reach its different forms, who like Xerneas and Yveltal [[ShoutOut seem to be inspired by Norse mythology]], specifically Loki's brood (they deny any blood relation with each other). No-one's quite sure how it qualifies as [[OurDragonsAreDifferent a dragon]].
** 10% Zygarde is its weakest attacking form, [[AnimalisticAbomination resembling a doberman]]. Though its stats are more like a normal Pokémon, [[FragileSpeedster its the fastest of the Zygarde forms]]. It takes after Fenrir, however ''does not'' like the beast. It wants to defend the environment, so is vehemently opposed to the beast's desire to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the world]].
** 50% Zygarde is the first known form of the Pokémon, being a serpentine entity with the ability of Aura Break. Too bad [[UselessUsefulSpell its ability eliminates the auras of the Pokémon it was already vulnerable too]]. It appears to be based off [[Pantheon/{{Prophecy}} Jormungadr]]. There might be some influence from Nidhoggr, but gets testy if compared to that OmnicidalManiac. Or Apophis, the serpentine OmnicidalManiac in the pantheon.
** Complete Zygarde [[GodzillaThreshold is only summoned in the direst situations]], all 95 Cells and 5 Cores coming together. [[DamageSpongeBoss It has one of the highest HP stats]], and manages to surpass Xerneas and Yveltal in strength. It appears to be based off [[Pantheon/{{Prophecy}} Hel]]. Some speculate [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwfZtJQuBEU it might take some inspiration from Cell]]. [[BerserkButton Gets enraged if compared to him]], due to Cell being a sadistic OmnicidalManiac and blight on the environment.
* [[GaiasVengeance Exist to protect the environment]], which made it a natural partner for Gaea and a good ally to Captain Planet. While normally peaceful, it is easy to anger when it comes to threats to the environment. It used to show distrust for humans, though its red Zygarde Core (known as Squishy) came to trust them and later on its blue core/Z2 as well. The initial distrust of humans and its desire to protect nature leads it to have a kinship with Virdi.
* Zygarde is notably similar to Rayquaza; they're green dragons who exist as a natural balancing act. The two get along, and sometimes drink away their sorrows that [[KillItWithIce they have quadruple weakness to ice attacks]]. The Sky High Pokémon does have Delta Stream to help, leaving the Order Pokémon annoyed at still being super-weak to ice. The other members of the Weather Trio, however? Zygarde considers them dicks for causing environmental catastrophe out of their feud, and will help Rayquaza wrangle them in. Has shown some fondness for Celebi.
* Despises Lysandre for experimenting on him [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} in the anime]], and mind-controlling it for his plans. In fact, it responded by unleashing a full powered Core Enforcer on the Team Flare leader.
* Though its home and temple is part of the House of Narrative, it feels more native in the House of Nature. Asides from its partner and Viridi being there, it finds the sandstorms of Crixalis a great help. However it dislikes the fact that Toxicity is a sub-house to Nature, as it opposes polluters and wastelands. It can also be found trying to enforce balance in the House of Life and Death.
* Opposes the GUAD and Nurgle in equal measure. It considers both to be the ultimate perversion of destruction and life; [[OmnicidalManiac a destruction without end or justice]], and [[FateWorseThanDeath a life twisted beyond value]].
* Keeps an eye out for Beerus. It understands the point of his destruction [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil as a means of balancing the universe]], and is fine helping that balance be kept with him, but [[PsychopathicManchild his childishness]] and mood-swings is something to keep an eye on. It has a much easier alliance for balance with Io, particularly since the two [[OurDragonsAreDifferent are dragons]].
* Though the Order Pokémon, it doesn't want to associate with the GUAL. Part of that is due to their law being something it doesn't care about. Part of it is because of [[GodIsEvil YHVH]]. The Mad God of Order has proved to be a blight on nature and the ecosystem, something Zygarde cannot stand. It will team up with the GUAC to stop YHVH and His forces, though it has zero interest in Lucifer's cause.
* Only Ash Ketchum and [[Characters/PokemonXY his Kalos traveling companions]] can refer to Zygarde (one of its its cores particular) as [[FluffyTheTerrible Squishy]].
