'''Theater and Spectacle'''

The deities here have taken Shakespeare's famous words to heart, and shaped their entire world into the form of a stage. In addition to the most well engineered stage, the Theater also boasts the best orchestra in the multiverse, seating that accommodate entire planetary populations, a high tech and efficient backstage management system, and the best stage ninjas. They also have a direct line with the library in the House of Knowledge, giving them access to every single play in existence. Most of the time, their performances are sold out on the first day and are forced to resort to standing room only to accommodate everyone.

The Theater deities once attempted to do a full performance of ''Literature/TheKingInYellow'' with "mixed" results. Suffice to say, the lead actor in that particular play now goes by the nickname "The Joker".

Due to the power of stories on the Pantheon as a whole, a disproportionate number of members are also members of the Main House. Tread lightly.

Please note the following, though:

* '''[[ComicBook/TheSandman Dream of the Endless]], Prince of [[{{Plots}} Stories]]''' was once a member of this pantheon, but ascended before time (and, yes, thereby before the existence of this pantheon... deal with it) resides in (some say lead) the Main House.
* There is also a designated '''Master of the PreMortemOneLiner''', but due to his threat levels among lower- and equal-ranked deities, was advised not to enter this house. He currently resides in the [[Pantheon/MilitaryTechnology House of War]].
* '''[[Pantheon/PersonalAppearance Hata no Kokoro]], Goddess of [[CoolMask Masks]]''', has a small stage built for her so that she can perform her noh theatre acts here.

The following house have been divided accordingly as well:
* Pantheon/TheatricConvention
* Pantheon/TheatricNarrative
* Pantheon/TheatricPerformers
* Pantheon/TheatricProduction

* If someone, somewhere, has used a trope idea in a popular literary work, chances are [[JustForFun/TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples This Guy beat them to the punch]] a long time ago.
* A great entertainer, his works have been shown daily in the Pantheon for the last three hundred years.
* The only known possible challenger to his title is {{Sophocles}}, but the Greek playwright had to admit Shakespeare's had the advantage in name recognition. Today they're said to be working together on an adaptation of the Great Pantheon War.
** Creator/{{Aeschylus}} used to hold the title, and {{Euripides}} is still trying to get the role.
* [[Pantheon/{{Travel}} Jack and Annie]] once visited him in the past, and played as fairies in "A Midsummer's Night Dream". When William found the two in the Pantheon, he asked if they could be on hand to act in a few more plays for him. Both graciously agreed to help.
* Is delighted that [[Pantheon/{{Love}} Romeo and Juliet]] were able to make it to the Pantheon, though annoyed at [[MisaimedFandom people not getting the meaning]].
** Is a bit more apprehensive about [[Panthon/VillainsDemigodsAndQuasideities Macbeth]].
* Was surprised to learn that he and Dr. Seuss [[WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory engaged]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3w2MTXBebg in a rap battle]]. Although Shakespeare is unhappy that [[spoiler:Seuss let his creations do all the rapping]], Dr. Seuss responds that what happened when Shakespeare [[BerserkButton accuses him of]] [[SeriousBusiness writing the]] ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' books.
* Banned Dr. Doom from entering his place after the time [[ComicBook/Marvel1602 Doom's alternative kidnaps him]].
* Do NOT suggest that [[BerserkButton someone else wrote his play for him under an alias]]. Anyone say so will have to talk Shakespeare's other versions with magical powers.
* Most of his characters, after hearing his ascension, has all flooded to his temples. While a lot of them are grateful that he created them, a few of the more unreasonable and villainous ones demands a rewrite. Shakespeare has avoided them ever since.
** [[Pantheon/TaintedLove Lady]] [[Pantheon/VillainousArchetypes Mac]][[Pantheon/{{Insanity}} beth]] pretends to be on good term with him but secretly plots to overthrow him to let her and her husband to have his power.
* Has been glad to see the Doctor again since Shakespeare thinks his shenanigan amusing and [[StableTimeLoop tries to write new works based on the Doctor's adventure]]
* George R. R. Martin is a fan of Shakespeare even though Martin doesn't like the HistoricalVillainUpgrade Shakespeare did to King Richard.
* His playwright skills allowed him to be summoned as a Servant during a Great Holy Grail War, where he's capable of inflicting [[MindRape mind tragedies]] into his enemies, despite his atrocious physical stats. Those who have known him during that time has been very wary that Shakespeare can be such a dangerous motherfucker, because as long as he thinks it'll make an interesting story (read: TONS OF [[{{Tragedy}} TRAGEDIES]]), he'll do exactly ''that''.
** In fact, one of his victims is none other than Jeanne d'Arc whom he uses his Noble Phantasm to crush her fighting spirit during the final confrontation with Amakusa Shirou. Needless to say, she didn't like this experience and she will get back at him if he tries to use First Folio on her again. This is not even speaking about her reaction upon finding out about [[Theater/HenryV his work that made her look like a devilish witch...]]
** Also rumors has it that throughout that particular war, he wrote a new epic based on his experience there. Unfortunately, no one has seen it on print, and Shakespeare isn't telling where he kept it, and what kind of story he wrote.[[/folder]]

* Opposes: [[Pantheon/VillainousAppearances Master Xehanort]], [[spoiler: [[Pantheon/TimePlacement Funny Valentine]], [[Pantheon/MotivationsForEvil Enrico Pucci]]]]
* Mickey is largely considered the great-grandfather of many animated characters. The explanations for this theory range from the [[AWizardDidIt nonchalant]] to the [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction downright bizarre]], since he is an anthropomorphic mouse, and many of his supposed offspring...are not.
* He personally redecorated his throne room into [[WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse a posh nightclub]], which is frequented by many of his friends from his youth.
* [[Franchise/KingdomHearts If you see him pointing something even slightly resembling a key at you, RUN!]] [[Disney/{{Fantasia}} If he's wearing a blue, pointy hat, RUN FASTER!]] [[VideoGame/EpicMickey If he has a paint brush, LAY DOWN AND PRAY!]]
* He was more than happy to pass up being [[Pantheon/{{Beast}} God of Mice]] for the position, [[FurryDenial since he never really considered himself a mouse.]] This coupled with [[RodentsOfUnusualSize his large size]] has alienated him from the inhabitants of MouseWorld.
* Enjoys skydiving with [[Pantheon/LuckAndFortune Bugs Bunny]] over Toontown occasionally in his spare time. The two have an ironic friendship despite being from rival companies, and having extremely different personalities.
* He pulled the impossible as [[VideoGame/EpicMickey2ThePowerOfTwo he managed to induce a]] HeelFaceTurn against someone as horrifying as WesternAnimation/TheMadDoctor. His former house in the Theater Pantheon is now empty, but Mickey achieved the thanks not just from the doctor himself, but also from many that was terrified by his debut cartoon. "That's what being a hero about."
* Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are often seen together, [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance "even when they're made of wood"]]. The trio once gotten themselves lost in Paris, France, after Goofy accidently dropped their luggage into the River Seine. They soon crashed into a party held by [[Pantheon/{{Quirks}} Dimitri Lousteau]], though he forgave them, since they had no idea where they were. Very fortunate that Dimitri has diving equipment, since they need a diver to collect the luggage. Since then, he often takes the trio, alongside their friends, on his cruses, though swimming isn't allowed, due to a [[UnscaledMerfolk "misfortune"]] involving Donald and Goofy.
* Vanitas's recent ascension has made him more nervous than he'd care to admit. [[spoiler: upon learning of it, he's warned all of Madoka's friends about Vanitas's plot to forge the χ-blade in the aftermath of the Pantheonic Rebellion. He has no idea that Vanitas intends to use Sailor Moon instead of Madoka.]]
** Since many gods exist in the pantheon that are either pure light or pure dark, Mickey has formed a security group with the GUAG to prevent gods of the opposing elements from clashing with one another, lest resulting in them forming the χ-blade by "accident". Asides the clash between [[spoiler:Vanitas and Ventus]], the closest this has ever happened is the attempted murder of [[Pantheon/RoyaltyOther Cinderella]] ([[LightIsGood a Princess of Heart]]) by the [[Pantheon/{{Family}} Tremaine family]] ([[AlwaysChaoticEvil a chaotic evil family]] [[DarkIsEvil of darkness]]).
* Mickey can show good leadership, especially when it came to the Darkness Proxy during "Project: Alternate!Gentaro". Even when Sora and Riku became either [[Fanfic/MuseHysteria sick]] or [[Fanfic/TheFriendshipAsylum corrupted]], Mickey never backed down for a minute, [[spoiler:though he does somewhat blame himself for letting Sora almost die in the asylum's destruction]].
* Mickey absolutely despises the Disney Channel sitcoms for being unfaithful to the name of Disney, and for being aimed exclusively at teenage girls. His hatred is so bad that he even ''praises'' the Nickelodeon sitcoms for having a larger target audience and for better writing.
* There was [[Disney/MickeysChristmasCarol one time]] where Mickey played Bob Cratchit in a (surprisingly not Disneyfied) adaptation of ''Literature/AChristmasCarol''. The way he acted in that film, especially in the scene [[spoiler:where Bob is at Tiny Tim's grave]], moved even the most stoic to tears.
* Unlike his creator, Mickey is generally welcoming of sequel-based deities, and is known to have stood up for [[Pantheon/{{Offsprings}} Sam and Melody]] when they were mistreated. He understands Walt's hatred of sequels and remakes, but believes that the characters from them shouldn't be attacked for existing, as it is not their fault.

* When Charlie Chaplin first arrived in the Pantheon wearing his Tramp outfit and twirling his cane, the gods offered him a position as the God of Silent Movies, to which he accepted.
* Chaplin gets along well with Mickey Mouse, which isnít surprising considering the fact that the latterís [[Creator/WaltDisney creator]] cited him as an inspiration for the mouse himself.
** The same can be said with Tom and Jerry, whose [[Creator/HannaBarbera creators]] cited Chaplin as a big influence on the slapstick and mostly wordless comedy in their cartoons.
* He was surprised to find WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat in the Pantheon, thought not so much when he was being honored for his work in the SilentMovie genre. Charlie was impressed with Felix's impersonation during [[WesternAnimation/FelixInHollywood one of his visits in Los Angeles]].
* Chaplin is critical on the House of Technology, believing that it is dehumanizing.
** At times, however, he can be seen hanging out with Tony Stark, due to [[Creator/RobertDowneyJr one thing]] [[Film/{{Chaplin}} they have in common]].
** For that same reason, he can also be seen hanging out with Sherlock Holmes.
* Several gods in the Pantheon noticed similarities between the physical appearances of Chaplin and Hitler of the Downfall Bunker (most notably the toothbrush moustache). While Hitler didnít particularly like Chaplin, whom he mistakenly believed to be Jewish, he apparently owned a private copy of ''Film/TheGreatDictator'' that he watched twice. Chaplin himself had regret for that film, as he said that he wouldnít have have made it had he knew about Hitlerís story.
* Being one of the most universally recognizable people of all time, itís no surprise that several gods in the Pantheon [[CharlieChaplinShoutOut have paid tribute to him]].
** The aforementioned Mickey Mouse imitated Chaplin by dressing up like him in ''Mickey Plays Papa'' (1934).
** [[Pantheon/{{Music}} Michael Jackson]] was a huge Chaplin fan and once dressed up like him for some publicity pictures. He also covered [[https://youtu.be/2HsJ7CgmIVM Chaplin's song "Smile"]].
** [[Pantheon/{{Fathers}} Homer Simpson]] in one CouchGag dressed up as Chaplin, imitating Chaplin in the process.
*** [[Pantheon/{{Speech}} Grampa]] [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E21LadyBouviersLover once]] tried to imitate Chaplin's bread roll dance from ''Film/TheGoldRush'', but was then forced to quit on order of a lawyer acting on behalf of Chaplin's estate.
** Jackie Chan paid homage to Chaplin in ''Project A'' in which the clock stunt was inspired by Chaplin's ''Film/ModernTimes''.
* Chaplin was once pitted against fellow silent movie star, Buster Keaton, in a [[WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch brutal fight to the death]] [[spoiler:which ended with Chaplin being ran over by a train]]. Despite this, he has great respect for Keaton, even giving him a cameo in ''Film/{{Limelight}}''.
* Albert Einstein is glad to see Chaplin in the Pantheon and [[http://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2015/02/on-this-day-einstein-and-chaplin-attend-a-premiere-in-1931/385096/ once recalled the time]] the comedian invited him as a guest of honor to attend the premiere of his film, ''Film/CityLights''.
* [[UrbanLegendOfZelda It is claimed]] that a ďtime travelerĒ can be seen talking to a cell phone in his film, ''Film/TheCircus''. [[Pantheon/TimeAndSpace The House of Time and Space]] denied the claim, suggesting that the mysterious individual is likely holding up an old-fashioned hearing aid.
* Has a complicated relationship with [[Creator/LaurelAndHardy Stan Laurel]], currently one of the High Priests of Pieing with his friend Oliver Hardy. They went to school together, but Chaplin never forgave Laurel for impersonating him in his early days, before finding his own voice. Laurel still has incredible respect for Chaplin, however. When they meet in the pantheon Chaplin tends to ignore Laurel.
