    Spawn 
Spawn, God of Nineties Anti Heroes (Al Simmons, The Guardian, Sad Man, Omega Spawn)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spawn7.jpg
  • Theme Song: "(Can't You) Trip Like I Do" by The Crystal Method and Filter.
  • Greater God (was once an Overdeity)
  • Symbol: His Emblem.
  • Alignment: True Neutral or Neutral Good, depending on the situation
  • Portfolio: The Atoner, Badass Baritone, Anti-Hero, Charred Body, Badass Cape, Domestic Abuser (ironic), Good Is Not Nice But Dark Is Not Evil, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Military Superhero, Using Guns Despite Having Powers, Heel Realization.
  • Domain: Undead, Magic, War.
  • Allies: Dante Sparda, Ghost Rider, Jackie Estacado, Jason Todd, Eric Draven, Wolverine, Venom, Scorpion, The Guy, Jax Briggs, Batman.
  • Enemies: Satan, YHVH, Lucifer, Joker, Kefka, Nekron, Four Horseman, Loki's Brood, The Lich, Lex Luthor, Mundus, Nightmare.
  • Rivals: Kratos, Heihachi Mishima, Link.
  • Odd Friendship: Yomi, Goliath
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork(?): Many of the Good-aligned Angels.
  • A product of the nineties in which many of their heroes went Darker and Edgier, Spawn exemplifies many elements of that time; wearing nearly all black, being an Anti-Hero, using guns, willingness to kill, and dealing with darker themes. However, he was popular enough to survive through the nineties and make a proper place in the comic world.
  • Once a man named Al Simmons, he commit his first murder at the age of 19 when he killed a molester who was molesting his little brother. It went down hill from there. He became a cruel mercenary who took his frustration out on his wife, Wanda. Ironically enough, it was only when he was murdered and became a Hell-Spawn when he realized how much of a heel he was and wanted to atone for his sins. Though, he is still willing to kill people, even if only the bad guys.
  • Despite what others may think, Spawn can work well with many of the good-aligned Angels in the pantheon. In fact, he dated one back in his home world.
  • Actually became close friends with Yomi. This is because Spawn protected many homeless people back in his world. Yomi respects him for that. She is, however, upset that he won't eat her bean sprouts.
    • He also found an ally in Goliath, who too is a protector of humanity. Many have noted with interest how much the two sound alike.
      • Whenever Spawn uses his suit to transform himself into his former human self, he has been remarked by others to look a bit like Jax Briggs. The Joker, on the other hand, found him similar to a mob boss he killed once.
  • Spawn's most notable feature is his suit, which is actually a demon named Leetha of the 7th House of K. It grants Spawn the ability to fly and use his chains and cape as weapons while feeding off of his ectoplasm.
  • Opposes both YHVH and Lucifer as their actions remind him a bit of his world's version of God and Satan. Though, the latter two are saints compared to the former two.
  • Being acquainted with the Soul Series deities, is sometimes invited to battle them, which he does by turning his cape into an axe. For some reason, he gets annoyed when Heihachi Mishima and Link show up too.
  • Participated in a Death Battle against Kratos prior to his own ascension with Spawn winning the bout. Zeus was pleased with the result of the battle. As were Hera, Ares, and one of the two Hades. Now that Spawn is in the Pantheon, Kratos is itching for a rematch.
  • Was once so powerful that he actually outranked both the God and Satan of his world. It was during this state that he actually stopped the apocalypse and reshaped the universe.
  • Despite having incredible powers, Spawn mainly relies on his guns. The reason being too much use of his powers drains his ectoplasm, and were it to be completely spent, he'd get sent right back to Hell.
  • With the exception of Dante Sparda, Spawn seems to coincidentally bump into other dark-and-edgy anti-heroes, such as Shadow and Ryuko Matoi. Many have joked that their "edginess" attract one to the other. They aren't amused.
  • Hates both The Joker and Lex Luthor as the two remind him of both The Clown and Jason Wynn.
  • Became allies with both The Guy and Venom as they were brought to life by the same creator. He also likes Merlin, who reminds him of Cogliostro.
  • Once thought to have come back from the dead thanks to the love of his wife. Turns out it was more out of guilt for abusing her and intentionally causing her to have a miscarriage, the latter coming back to bite him later in life. He is, however, atoning for his horrible mistakes.

Intermediate Gods

    HK- 47 
HK-47, God of Token Evil Teammates
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hk-47wikiart_1892.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope
  • Alignment: Originally Neutral Evil, is leaning toward Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Ensemble Dark Horse, Laughably Evil, Sociopathic Hero, Killer Robot, Token Evil Teammate
  • Domains: Assassin, Robot, Death, Violence
  • Master: Revan
  • Allies: the House of War (they love his definition of Love), Bender (he appreciates the term "Meatbag."), Belkar Bitterleaf,
  • Opposed By: the House of Love (they don't like his definition of Love), human or non-robotic members of the pantheon (they don't appreciate the term "Meatbag.")
  • Commonality Connection: E-123 Omega
  • Is on surprisingly good terms with Legion, despite their polar opposite views on organic-synthetic relations. They play paintball on the weekends, and while HK appreciates having a Worthy Opponent in a synthetic who is just as skilled with a rifle as he is, he remains baffled as to why Legion always sides with the "meatbag" team.
  • Is also an associate of KOS-MOS, whose ability for large scale destruction of "Meatbags" he is admittedly envious of. Despite this, he considers her lack of enjoyment in the undertaking a point of weakness and has been trying to coax it out of her.
  • Several members of the GUAG who were disgusted by him once installed a pacifist chip inside him. Horrified by the results, they promptly uninstalled it. 47 considered the experience a nightmare, though to his credit he does admit that having that chip installed gave him a small insight into why many prefer peace to war.
  • Some have noticed that ascended follower E-123 Omega shared some of HK-47's traits during one of his adventures. HK-47 sometimes recruits the robot for select missions.
  • Is happy to see his former follower Belkar ascend. The two certainly enjoy each other's bloodlust.
  • Despite being, you know, violently evil, he's programmed to follow his good master, and thus the GUAE is forced to admit that he's out of reach for the moment.
  • Despite newer HK models showing up, HK 47 has proven to be cunning and snarky in deposing many of his newer brethren.
  • Learned of a successor of sorts to him called Mr. Bones. HK-47 entertained the idea of making him his High Priest, but was disappointed with his untimely death.

    Iroque 
Iroque, Goddess of Reformation Through Brainwashing (Indigo-1)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Green_Lantern_Issue-47_Teaser_1985.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess.
  • Symbol: The Symbol of the Indigo Tribe.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (formerly Neutral Evil)
  • Portfolio: Heel–Face Brainwashing which she herself was subjected to, Former Sociopath, Good Feels Good, Heel–Face Turn, Good Is Not Soft.
  • Domains: Light, Compassion, Redemption, Brainwashing.
  • Allies: Hal Jordan, Hakumen, Madoka, Zatanna.
  • Rivals: Batman.
  • Enemies: Melkor and Nyarlathotep, who have made eliminating her a top priority due to the Indigo Light she carries, Black Hand, Nekron, SCP-993
  • Conflicting Opinion: Philemon. While she respects his beliefs, she is still rather annoyed by his noninterference clause.
  • Ascended to the Pantheon upon the discovery of the Indigo Light's properties, and the revelation that she ordered it done to Black Hand as well as all the members of the Indigo Tribe and briefly Sinestro. While many of the GUAG's members were initially leary about letting a brainwasher and sociopath join them, she was accepted in upon the discovery that she now felt guilt even without the Indigo Ring's influence.
  • Has become The Dreaded to the GUAE's more sociopathic and amoral members, due to the Heel–Face Brainwashing powers of the Indigo Light. While many of the GUAG's members are slightly unnerved by the idea of using brainwashing, even on their enemies, some of the more pragmatic members have supported the idea of weaponizing the rings against the GUAE.
  • Gets along well with Madoka Kaname, who sees Iroque's actions and repentance as proof that there is hope for even the worst sinners to be redeemed.
  • Upon her ascension, went to see Hal Jordan in the House of Heroes, due to him being the other (good) representative of the Lantern Corps. The two had a discussion on the Pantheon and, it is rumored, have made plans to ascend more of the good Lanterns to aid them.
  • Has a great dislike for all Fallen Heroes, viewing them as willfully turning away from the light despite being born to it, unlike the Indigo Tribe, who were, in a sense "born in the dark."
  • Has a rivalry with Batman, despite both being heroes, as he heavily frowns upon those who use brainwashing due to Identity Crisis. Iroque, in turn, is surprised by his willingness to prepare to backstab his own allies but being unwilling to use other unethical means. She has bonded somewhat with Zatanna over this, though.
  • While it is unknown what would happen if a Made of Evil such as Nyarlathotep came into contact with one of the Indigo Tribe's rings, nobody is very interested in finding out.

     John Marston 
John Marston, God of Retired Outlaws
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f26f0710b35ab69c6c8327f0f1616cc0.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Theme Song: (Theme from) Red Dead Redemption or Born Unto Trouble
  • Symbol: His hat with a revolver by its side
  • Alignment: Heroic Neutral (but can have Evil tendencies depending on actions)
  • Portfolio: Former outlaw willing to go through all kinds of obstacles and fighting off all kinds of opponents from wild beasts to outlaws to armies to see his family safe, Dead Eye ability, atoning for his criminal past, living off the land, Hunter Trapper, unwilling participant in revolutionary struggles no matter which side he picks, a loving husband and good father, uneducated but very intelligent and quick with a snappy criticism, allows himself to be killed to have his family spared, Animals Hate Him
  • Domains: The Old West, Family, Guns, Anti-heroism
  • Allies: John Wayne, The Man with No Name, Jean Valjean, Vash the Stampede, The Farmer, Johnny Appleseed, Applejack, Lelouch vi Britannia, Stephen Colbert, Chris & Claire Redfield, Jill Valentine, Leon Scott Kennedy, Chie Satonaka, Moe Syzlak, Asura, Bryan Mills, Edward Newgate, Eirin Yagokoro, The Monster Hunters, Niko Bellic.
  • Enemies: Evil gods in the House of Beast.
  • Rivals: Lucky Luke, Yosemite Sam, Jesse McCree
  • Opposes: Most deities of the House of Justice (especially Inspector Javert, Carmelita Fox and Miko Miyazaki), Tewi Inaba, The Four Horsemen
  • Feared by: The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog
  • Heralds: Abigail & Jack Marston (his wife and son as they were also former outlaws)
  • Ascended after the events of his life more specifically, taking a stand against an entire army regiment led by a corrupt law official to give his family time to escape and going down fighting to the end. He was upset at first at no longer having his family, but the Judge said that being also former outlaws, they will ascend as his heralds. John was surprised at the news that his son was an outlaw (since his wife was a given as she too once ran in his old gang), and was dismayed at hearing his son Jack taking revenge against the corrupt official who had him killed by killing him in return and following in his footsteps. He wanted to be reunited with his son, but not in this manner and blamed himself for not teaching him better. When he saw Jack, he said not a word despite Abigail’s pleas.
  • Even though they don’t have any power or authority in the Pantheon being mere heralds, it is not a good idea to threaten John’s wife and kid as he will immediately go Papa Wolf on the unlucky deity with a Dead Eye-infused Evans Repeater salvo. It’s this reason he is allied with the League of Extreme Fatherhood.
  • Because of his past, most obstinate members of the House of Justice would want nothing more than see him pay horribly for his crimes. While it is true that John agrees that he can’t change his past and tries to atone for it which was the reason for his Heroic Sacrifice, he lives for his family now. He is at least glad he has a friend in Jean Valjean to counter many of the accusations there.
  • His “temple” in the House of Ambiguity is more or less a grander version of his homestead in Beecher’s Hope, now a magnificent ranch rivaling that of his friends, the MacFarlenes, complete with a mighty herd of cattle, horses and other livestock, fields of wondrous crops (helped with assistance from the Farmer), beautiful orchards of apples (donated by Johnny Appleseed) and even a saloon for his friends in the Pantheon. The cows from his temple are considered sacred and their milk is very nutritious. Being a friendly sort, he generally ships jugs and cartons of his cows’ milk to the House of Food and Elysium Academy for consumption or cooking use.
    • Even though the saloon is not as fancy as Moe’s Tavern, it is still a simple place to have homemade Western-style cuisine (courtesy of Abigail’s cooking and the homegrown meat and crops), cold drinks at the bar, or a good game of Poker or Liar’s Dice (with a horseshoes pitch outside). John Wayne and the Man with No Name (being paragons of the West) hang out here. Chie Satonaka is also a frequent patron after she gave her seal of approval towards their steaks. Moe has a good relation with John and allows his followers/assistants to tend the bar there.
  • Applejack likes to visit John’s ranch as it reminds her of her home at Sweet Apple Acres. Abigail and Jack took a liking to her and take care of her as if she was one of their horses. To the surprise of many, she tends to enter the saloon and engage in a round of Liar’s Dice or two. Needless to say, she is very bad at it (she’s the Element of Honesty, after all). When it comes to Horseshoes, however…
  • Lucky Luke paid him a visit hearing about his former outlaw ways but stopped short of bringing him in after seeing how he has changed and meeting his family. Still, he was curious about John's shooting ability and challenged him to a duel which John accepted. While Luke won, he was impressed with the John's skill and became good-natured rivals. Luke was even glad there was a saloon in the Pantheon, in which he could have a good meal, which Abigail is happy to have ready for him.
  • The Kombatant gods tend to give him odd looks as he somewhat reminds them of a certain mercenary under Kotal Kahn’s employment. John merely shrugs it off.
  • He is quite knowledgeable about certain plants which he uses as makeshift medicines, which impressed Poison Ivy. What impressed Pamela even more is that John is completely immune to her pheromones. He is that dedicated to his wife Abigail.
    • It was being so knowledgeable about medicinal plants that he became allies with Eirin Yagokoro, who is glad to find someone able to find good herbs and plants for use in her medicines.
  • Even though he doesn’t like to brag, he is very very good with guns. His special ability is the Dead Eye, which not only allows him to continuously fire all the available rounds of a gun before reloading, but also gives him an impressive invincibility buff while it is active. Its only drawback is that it doesn’t last too much. Still, the skill has helped him not only against fighting whole bands of outlaws and army regiments but also packs of wild animals.
    • Marcus Kincaid offered some of his Pandoran-based weapons to John in order to test how the Dead Eye would work with them. While John had no affinity for the futuristic weapons, he, however, liked the Jakobs brand of guns as they reminded him more of the weapons of his time.
  • Aside from defeating outlaws and doing some bounty hunting, John is also an accomplished hunter, which his Dead Eye ability helps out when going after extremely dangerous prey such as native cougars and bears of his world. He, of course, is cautioned to watch himself when going to the House of Beasts. The Monster Hunters, naturally, made him an honorary member.
    • Stephen Colbert also holds him in high regard for fighting the good fight against the Bear Menace. (If only he ever heard of the time John faced and killed zombie bears…)
  • After hearing of his hunting prowess, some gods (particularly allies to the Trollkaiger) told him about a certain special rabbit in the Sub-House of Mammals. When John met the Rabbit of Caerbannog, he was nearly mauled when it struck him unaware. Taking out his Buffalo Rifle and loading it with blessed phosphorous bullets, he went into Dead Eye mode and…'''BOOM'''. All that was left of the Rabbit were some of its fangs, fur, and one of its feet, which he collected as trophies. The Trollkaiger (who hoped John would get massacred) wasn’t deterred, because killing the Rabbit would bring upon John the ire of Tewi Inaba, who naturally was upset at someone killing her subordinate, and was ready to curse John with bad luck. They also counted on her being so mad that she would be unwilling to listen to John explain himself, which she was. However, Eirin appeared at just the right moment and told Tewi to hold off from cursing him until John carefully explained the situation. She proved to be the Spanner in the Works for Trollkaiger, because once John was done explaining, Tewi and Eirin realized it was that group that was behind this. Needless to say, Trollkaiger suffered a bout of bad luck for quite some time. Tewi told John he could keep the fangs, fur, and rabbit’s foot, but warned him to never again go after the Rabbit. The Rabbit itself, being a deity in this pantheon, was quickly revived, but now has a deep-rooted fear of the ex-outlaw.
  • In an alternate universe, John was caught in the middle of a Zombie Apocalypse and actually survived it, dealing with not just regular zombies, but also zombified wild animals as well. This has earned him the respect of the ascended BSAA members.
    • The Four Horsemen were actually shocked to learn John was able to break and tame their mounts from that alternate verse. Most of the Horsemen consider him a nuisance, except for Death, who already had a history with John; he met him several times in his quest in the guise of a stranger with a top hat and mustache. John considers him a bothersome pest.

    Kaito Kumon/Kamen Rider Baron 
Kaito Kumon, God of Nominal Heroes (Kamen Rider Baron, New Generation Rider Baron, Monsieur Banane, Kameko, Lord Baron, Aka-Rider)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaitokumon_5341.jpg
Kamen Rider Baron 
note 
  • Headbutting Warriors With: All Ascended Toku Heroes, Satellizer el Bridget, Alex (Street Fighter).
  • Rivals: Lu Bu, Yuma Tsukumo (Half this, half Odd Friendship).
  • Enemies: The entire members (and employed members) of SHOCKER, the GUAE Mecha Cohort, Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke, Lock Dealer Sid/Kamen Rider Sigurd, Redyue, Nui Harime, Ragyo Kiryuin, Char Aznable, Jerid Messa, Haman Karn, Gilgamesh, Nobuyuki Sugou/Oberon the Fairy King, Lord Djibril, Anyone who uses their strength to oppress the weak. (even Lucifer whenever he does)
  • Opposes: Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa.
  • Respects: Saitama, Satsuki Kiryuin, Kamille Bidan.
  • Worthy Opponent: Kouta Kazuraba/Kamen Rider Gaim.
  • Ascended after his final battle with Kouta. He often can be seen near the House of Combat challenging other gods to show him their strength. However, he found a worthy rival in the form of Lu Bu.
  • When he first heard of her, he openly despised Satsuki Kiryuin due to her policies. After hearing the full story, however, he came to respect her for having similar ideals to himself.
  • Has nothing but respect for Kouta, acknowledging him as being truly strong. However, He does desire to test his might against the Man of the Beginning again.
  • Kaito gets along surprisingly well with both Sasuke Uchiha, and Vegeta, as both three of them had a common rivalry with idealistic heroes such as Kouta, Goku, and Naruto.
    • Also gets along with Seto Kaiba as both men were orphaned during their childhood days who later became worthy opponents to their respective rivals. Kaito makes him wonder that Kaiba's voice reminding him of Redyue.
      • He was NOT happy with what happened to Kaiba. The CEO got sent with nightmares of killing someone, believing himself insane, got brainwashed by Yugi Muto to kill Kairi and that triggered the Undead Uprising and cause the near-destruction of the Pantheon. While he understands that Kaiba wasn't in the right state of mind, it still got him really upset to see what happened. And don't let him get started with that Quantum Cube incident...
  • Despite Mitsuzane's work towards redemption, Kaito still does not trust him. When he learned of "Project:Alternate!Gentaro", he was more amused at Alternate Gentaro exposing his power when he gut Mitsuzane and bringing despair and destruction to prove his worth.
  • Unlike most Gods, Kaito believes what Saitama says about how he got his great power and respects him for it.
  • Call him a Banana at your own risk. The last one to do so was Nui Harime who called Kaito "Monsieur Banane". The result was Nui gaining Kaito's undying hatred, and any gods who witnessed what followed being sworn to secrecy.
    • Believe it or not, the first one to say that is none another than Oren, whom he fought occasionally in the mortal plane.
  • Much to the surprise of many gods Kaito is actually a rather skilled pâtissier, which is surprising considering he likely cannot taste anything he makes.
  • He would rather no-one bring up the "Fresh Lockseed" Incident.
  • Avoids the House of Sports and any Soccer related gods for reasons he doesn't quite understand. Or to be more accurate, remember.
  • Kaito's temple, rather surprisingly, contains a Shinto shrine similar to the one that existed in Zawame when he was a child.
  • Kaito has a intense hatred towards Masato Kusaka due to his bad reputation among the lines of his brethren Secondary Riders, and his actions hitting too close to home by reminding him all too much of what Mitsuzane had done in the past. He's also aware that even Micchy doesn't like him either for roughly the same reasons.
    • He also disliked how Go Shijima seemed similar to both of them, having a similar attitude towards Roidmudes like Kusaka towards Orphenochs, becoming jealous towards one of his fellow riders like Mitsuzane, and eventually turning against his fellow riders with the intent of destroying them, also like Mitsuzane. However, he at least acknowledges the reasons for these. His father was the one who created the Roidmudes, and thus caused their worldwide attack on humanity, Chase is a Roidmude himself (although it's still not a good enough excuse since the latter reformed), and was apparently brainwashed into fighting his allies against his will. It sort of helps that Go wasn't brainwashed, but had a legitimate reason for his actions, can now tell apart good Roidmudes from the bad, and is practically redeeming himself faster than it took Mitsuzane.
  • Remember that one of his allies is that similarly named Kaito Tenjo? Well, his rival Yuma Tsukumo ascended and Kaito seems like he will resume that rivalry on his behalf. Though the young duelist reminds Kaito a little of Kouta and is insanely powerful (given the right conditions) to boot so he's still waiting to see if Yuma will be able to have a real battle with him. Maybe if the boy learned how to Action Duel...
    • And now the other Kaito has ascended too...
  • Even though Kaito was willing to destroy all of humanity, those ambition has been totally abandoned once he ascended. Half of the reason for it is because he did lose to Kouta and is willing to fight to protect the Earth and his view.

  • Symbol: The Gokaiger Symbol.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (although they started as Chaotic Neutral before Gai joins the team)

  • Conflicting Opinion: Kaito Kumon/Kamen Rider Baron (Marvelous only).
  • Known as the 35th Super Sentai team and the "Sentai Counterpart" of Tsukasa Kadoya/Kamen Rider Decade, the Gokaigers are a group of space pirates who traveled to Earth in search of the "Greatest Treasure in the Universe", with them possessing "Ranger Keys" this allows them to transform into their ranger forms as well as every past Super Sentai teams, using these powers in order to battle the Space Empire Zangyack which was bent for universal domination. Along the way, they were joined by an Earthling named Gai Ikari who is known to be a Super Sentai Fanboy with his vast knowledge on every Sentai teams before them.
  • Upon ascension, the Gokaigers were seen walking out of Cosmos' shrine within the House of Heroes, bearing the official documentation for joining the GUAG. When asked about this, Marvelous answered that the team was now seeking "The Greatest Treasure in the Pantheon", something to put Earth's greatest treasure to shame. The easiest way to get the information they sought was with the good guys. That's the only reason they're getting involved in any fighting.
  • The group also gets along well with the crew of the Straw Hat Pirates since both of them seeks their respective treasures. Also, both the Gokaigers and the Straw Hat Pirate crews had a lot of things in common. Since then, both pirate crews would help each other, especially whenever they're going on a treasure hunt.
  • Of course due to being a team of pirates, they have gotten into several confrontations against Sakazuki, who has vowed to erase every pirate in existence. They find that he's nothing more than another insane killer and is simply using the law as an excuse to kill people he just doesn't like.
  • Enraptured by the sudden appearance of a pirate themed Sentai team, the Gokaigers were cornered one day by the ToQgers, one of the Sentai teams to appear after their own adventures. After some (reluctant) storytelling, the ToQgers used their imagination to create a set of ToQger Ranger Keys for their new allies to use.
    • Also, many of the ascended heroic Kamen Riders gave the Gokaigers the privileges to transform into different Rider forms with Kouta Kazuraba uses his godly powers to create Rider Keys in their likeness for them to use.
  • As a man knowledgeable in all things Sentai, Gai naturally found himself elated to meet Dr. Oliver as equals, meeting the most famous Power Ranger. He has been trying to convince the team to Gokai Change into the "Team Six" formation in honor of Tommy. However, he's hit a snag since only five would work. Gai has started to get the autographs of the Power Rangers.
  • Don, Ahim and Gai had a sympathy towards Takatora Kureshima, a fellow Token Good Teammate, after knowing of him being betrayed by his so-called comrades led by Ryoma Sengoku. Speaking of the Mad Scientist, the Gokaigers gained an ire towards Ryoma due to his own agenda of grasping the Forbidden Fruit for his own gain which makes him no different to their worst nemesis Basco.
  • While roaming across the pantheon with their Gokai Galleon, they met several deities in the pantheon, such as Belldandy, Suzaku Kururugi, and Nanoha Takamichi. At first, due to their familiar voices, they had mistaken them for being Insarn, Jealousto, and Navi respectively, however after they discussed their respective backgrounds, they became allies ever since.
    • Also at the same time, the Gokaigers became enemies with I-No after they notice of her connections with their enemy and Zangyack member Insarn.
  • The team is very close allies with the Suite Pretty Cures since both groups had their adventures in the same year.
  • Gai was very close friends with fellow Otakus like Yayoi Kise and Ryusei Date, as the former was an aspiring manga artist and fan of Anime, Toku, and Robots, who became a Pretty Cure and the latter is fan of Super Robots in general. As the trio discussed their interests, they decide to hold a Convention dedicated to Anime, Toku, and Robot genre.
  • Joe is somewhat impressed with Kirito and Asuna's swordsmanship skills while he encountered them in the New Aincrad, also he had once dueled them in a 2-on-1 match while showing off his own skills. As both Kirito and Asuna witness his skills in battle, they were also impressed with him they became friends with him ever since.
  • Like the Gorengers and the ToQgers before, the team is very close allies with the Kids Next Door as the Gokaigers were impressed with their technology and teamwork even though they were just kids. Also, both Don and Numbuh Two helped each other as they find new ways to create and provide newer weapons for them to use.
  • Both Marvelous and Joe were somewhat close friends with both Kyoko Sakura and Sayaka Miki respectively, both had found them interesting with their respective skills and their similarities between them. They also pointed out that they might be their magical girl counterparts, much to the girl's surprise.
  • They had a sympathy towards a fellow pirate named Miss Fortune, as both felt the same way due to their pasts of losing the person that was important to them. Also, Marvelous took an interest in her as the two might have a charisma challenge someday.
  • They found an unlikely ally with Lelouch vi Britannia since he also had experience battling tyrannical empires just like them. They also expressed their hate towards Lelouch's father Charles as the tyrannical emperor makes him no different to the likes of Ackdos Gil.
    • Ahim gets along quite well with Ange as she was saddened after learning of her predicament and was very upset of how people treated her like a monster due to her nature as a Norma. This makes her enemies with Embryo as well since he's the reason why the Normas were seen as monsters.
  • The crew also develops a rivalry of sorts with Jack Sparrow after the God of Piracy gained an interest in them and Jack wants them to prove their worth of what being a pirate is all about.
  • The Gokaigers were not pleased that their nemesis Basco was present in the pantheon for a long time since their last encounter. Worst of all, he was part of the Trollkaigers whose group consists of malicious trolls that commit atrocities in the pantheon. Because of this, the Gokaigers were determined to stop Basco and his band of trolls.
  • The Gokaigers also became enemies with the Psycho Rangers due to them being a group of evil ranger teams, this makes worst that Ahim develop a rivalry with Psycho Pink.
  • As they fought, the Gokaigers made several enemies in the pantheon, such as Monokuma and Junko Enoshima due to their reputation of initiating the "School Life of Mutual Killings" at Hope's Peak Academy, Ragyo Kiryuin for messing with her daughters for her own amusement, and Rau Le Creuset for being a warmonger who commits a lot of crimes in his own universe. Because of this, the Gokaigers were determined to stop their evil acts in the pantheon.
    • With Ace's ascension and his and Luffy's encounter with Monokuma and his mastermind, the two have been joining them on their quest, especially with them stopping the high-school killing games.
  • Marvelous had a conflict of sorts with Kaito Kumon as the Armored Rider's antiheroism and his appearance reminding of himself for a lot of reasons. However, Kaito's motivation of breaking the world's status quo through the Forbidden Fruit has made Marvelous cannot accept Kaito's ways.
  • After she heard the best piano music in a very long time, Ahim wanted to know who the pianist was. After searching, she became very good friends with Bulk and Skull.
  • No matter what curry shop he dines in at the House of Food, Marvelous will never finish a bowl of curry in peace. Something will come up.

     Kiritsugu Emiya 
Kiritsugu Emiya, God of Pragmatic Heroes (Kerry, Magus Killer, Assassin, EMIYA)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/emiya_kiritsugu_fate_zero_portrait_6112.jpg
As EMIYA 
  • Theme Song: Magus Killer or his version of EMIYA.
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Gun.
  • Alignment: Necessarily Evil (according to Kiritsugu himself), actually Chaotic Neutral. Chaotic Evil as Assassin.
  • Portfolio: Pragmatic Heroes, Doing what he has to do, Dark and Troubled Past, The Unfettered, Necessarily Evil, Poetic Justice, War Is Hell.
  • Domain: Warfare, Pragmatism, Sacrifices.
  • Allies: Shirou Emiya (his adopted son), Illyasviel von Einzbern (his biological daughter), Archer, Rin Tohsaka, Kamijou Touma, Homura Akemi, Kroak, Martin Walker, Master Chief, Yuji Sakai, Jack Bauer, Taylor Hebert, Raiden, Oriko Mikuni, Tavish DeGroot, Takatora Kureshima, Shinya Kogami.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork With: Artoria Pendragon.
  • Enemies: Kotomine Kirei, Johan Liebert, Melkor, The Vandereich, The Millennium, Monsoon, Gilgamesh, The Huckbein Family, Sundowner, The Joker, Esdeath
  • He's always known for his most surefire and pragmatic ways to solve problems and defeat evil. No matter how disgusting and dishonorable the method is, so long as it gets the job done. Opinions about him in the Pantheon are kind of... mixed.
  • He finds his ascension rather ironic - having openly criticized the Throne of Heroes for taking glory in war, he now finds himself in a literal Pantheon of Heroes. He made it clear that he's not here for the glory, but only for the chance to do the right thing.
  • He's somehow very fond of Homura Akemi for some reason. He cannot figure out why. He's also close to Jack Bauer due to kind of similar method in dealing with what he considered evil, and he likes one of his theme songs for some reasons. For that friendship, Jack has shared some knowledge with Kiritsugu, in particular his interrogation technique.
    • Likewise, he and Master Chief are on good terms, for a similar reason as Jack Bauer as well as their agreement that War Is Hell. While the Chief would definitely like to see Kiritsugu use his methods against the Covenant, he's not so sure he could see him go against Insurrectionists.
  • Usually visits the House of Travel to relax at Inns.
  • As a man who has seen through the hells of war, he develops a good rap with Martin Walker, often sharing stories on how hellish war is and how people should avoid it at all cost. Walker is a bit stunned with Kiritsugu's extreme pragmatism, though, to the point of comparing him of his bloodthirsty part.
  • He made sure that not even his son Shirou knew about his ascension. But the first thing he did when he ascended was to sneak to Shirou's House, and after seeing him doing well on his own and learning about what a hero truly meant... There's just a satisfied smile on Kiritsugu's face.
    • He also knows Archer's identity and always made sure that he gave him a sad, but understanding smile on him.
  • Is considered the bane of MANY Gods and Goddesses in the House of Magic, even Homura. None dared tried to piss him off or get on his bad side. When asked why, most followers would reply with "Does the term Magus Killer ring a bell to you?" Kroak does, however, approve of him and his philosophy.
    • He's still considered a more respectable 'Magus Killer', when compared to some like the Huckebein family. Kiritsugu also has nothing but disgust for that family.
    • Thanks to his skill as a 'Magus Killer', he was eventually befriended by Tavish DeGroot since the Demoman has a large amount of hate towards the The House of Magic, mostly the evil ones. Because of this, both of them do normal hunts for evil deities within the house. Ironically though, Kiritsugu didn't want to befriend him since he may get into Arturia's bad side. He still became friends nonetheless.
      • However, at one point, Gul'dan's ascension in the House caused both of them to hunt the Darkness Incarnate. The damage around the house was catastrophic, and even destroyed half of the house itself. This became the last straw for Arturia and decided to place the Demoman in her Teeth-Clenched Teamwork list, with him being the THE 2ND LAST RESORT she will work with. This got both of them disappointed but still tolerable to each other.
  • Ever since hearing all about Kiritsugu and how he suffers so beautifully as he's forced to lose everything he loves due to his ideals from Kotomine, Melkor is deliberately going out of his way to torment him even further with his forces of the GUAE.
  • His hairstyle has been compared to Spike Spigel's. This has sparked no reaction from the Magus Killer so far. Some gods have actually thought of a line by the words of "See ya, Magus Killer"
  • Sympathizes with Raiden after hearing about his past as a Child Soldier, and having experienced what war can do to a person. Also sympathizes with Yuji Sakai after hearing that he is trying to end a war that has lasted for millennia and the war would eventually end humanity.
  • Arturia will work with him as a last resort. Despite no longer caring about him forcing her to destroy the grail, she still harbors disgust over his dishonorable actions and lack of decency. For his part, Kiritsugu will always consider her someone who is too bound by a romanticized view of war and chivalry to amount to much good in the world.
  • Has been training for his inevitable rematch with Kirei Kotomine. The Grail War may be over, but the bad blood between the two men will never truly quiet.
    • In addition, he has been looking for a way to destroy Araya's apartment complex. Araya has anticipated this, however, and has erected new barriers to counter the origin bullet.

     Laharl 
Laharl, God of Noble Demons (Overlord Laharl)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Laharl__8888.png
  • Theme Song: "Lord Laharl's Hymn"
  • Intermediate God (Greater God when motivated enough)
  • Symbol: His scarf and cuffs
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (he insists it's Chaotic Evil)
  • Portfolio: Evil Overlords, Noble Demons, Anti-Love Freaks, Bad Bosses, Those With Unusual Ears, Oedipus Complexes, Masters of the Evil Laugh, Irritable Short Guys, Exploding Penguins
  • Domains: Demonic, Wrath, Rage
  • Followers: Bartimaeus, Gogandantess, Vyers/Mid-Boss/Demon King Krichevskoy (also from Disgaea), Ecliptor
  • Allies: Flonne, Sicily, Oedipus (Oedipus claims to be close allies with him, Laharl denies knowing the guy), Etna (though she's still pissed off at him about the pudding incident), Lamington (as much as he denies it)
  • Rivals: Adell, Mao, Valvatorez, Zetta, Gig
  • Enemies: Shion Sonozaki, Trollkaiger (Bernkastel, Terumi, Izaya, Handsome Jack, Basco), Yoko Littner, the Slimes, Ghirahim, Gul'dan.
  • Opposed by: Len
  • Frequently seen with Flonne, Goddess of Love Freaks, but insists that it's just so he can throw the Pantheon of Love off guard and destroy them once and for all. Nobody believes him.
  • Has a very.....complicated....relationship with the Sisterhood. On one hand, he sides with Homura and believes in "Might Makes Right". On the other hand, he protects them because his friend is with them, has a VERY good reason for where his sympathies lie mainly due to emotional trauma suffered from selfless sacrifice (from when he was biologically 4 years old no less), and also thinks the machinations of "The Great Upheaval" went way, WAY too far.
  • Was once on Dante's hit list, but after a rather violent altercation and a stern talking-to from Flonne the demon-hunter decided to just keep an eye on Laharl for now.
  • Due to his great fear of breasts that happens to be above the average size, he has yet to win a fight against the more... endowed female inhabitants of the Pantheon...yet.
    • And then there was that one time he became a rather endowed woman. Trollkaiger are constantly bombarding him with pictures of his sexier alter ego, hoping to see him vomit his own organs out.
    • Then there was the time Shion pulled the "Angel Mort" stunt on him.
  • Would like to tell the Toku Base (especially the Power Rangers) that no, he is NOT related to Rita Repulsa, even though some claim they sound a lot alike.
  • Is taking part in "The Pantheonic Rebellion to back up Flonne.
  • One day, Laharl called out Mao and challenged him to a guffaw battle, wanting to show that his laugh was the best after the last guffaw battle was interrupted. However, their contest caught the attention of other laughing gods and goddesses and soon, everyone from Iori Yagami to the Joker stepped up and tried to drown out everyone's laugh with their laugh, even to the point of losing air. By the end, many had to be rushed to the House of Health and Diseases to get treated for sore throat. The entire episode became known as the "Great Guffaw War".

Dexter Morgan, Divine Killer of Killers (The Bay Harbor Butcher)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dexter16.jpg
  • Theme Song: Morning Routine
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A blood-stained apron
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolios: Adorkable, Ambiguous Disorder, Animals Hate Him, Necessarily Evil, Can analyse a crime scene in seconds, Badass Bookworm, keeps battle trophies of the criminals he's slain, Consummate Liar, Control Freak, Detective Mole, Hunts the Most Dangerous Criminals, Knife Nut, Manipulative Bastard, Noble Demon, Papa Wolf, Pragmatic Villainy, Psychotic Smirk, Sympathetic Murderer, Wouldn't Hurt a Child
  • Domains: Death, Murder, Torture, Deception
  • Followers: Vino, James Cash
  • Allies: The Punisher, Kevin McCallister
  • Enemies: The Joker, Batman, Light Yagami, Carnage, Dio Brando, Yoshikage Kira, Hensel and Gretel, Springtrap, Johan Liebert, Katarina, The Jigsaw Killer
  • Rivals: Ezio Auditore, Strider Hiyru, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
  • Opposes: Jack the Ripper, Hannibal Lecter
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The House of Justice
  • Conflicting Opinion: Jason Todd
  • Uneasy Alliance: Rem
  • Feared by: Dexter
  • Originally switching between Hannibal Lecter and Jack the Ripper (who competed for the title God of Serial Killers), Dexter hoped to to use his divine powers to kill them both. Using the dispute to cause the two gods to feud with each other, he hoped that the two would face one last time to the death. Then, he can swoop in and finish off the weakened victor. Unfortunately, he underestimated Hannibal's cunning and the two turned on him instead. After a vicious thrashing, the two gods stripped him of his divine power and left him for dead, with the Ripper taking the Serial Killer title. Luck would befall on him as he did not die that day. Instead, he woke up at the gates of the Pantheon, rising up himself as the God of Serial-Killer Killers.
  • He did not get the amount of followers he thought he'd get, as his series fell out in favor due to Seasonal Rot. Luckily, it wasn't due to his own failings and thus avoided being placed in The Fallen.
  • Few gods would suspect that a serial killer would have such a neat and tidy temple. Most deities think he's just a minor detective in the House of Justice. And yet it is all a ruse: he makes other gods think of him as a normal man. That all changes when ventures off at night, luring criminals away to torture and eventually kill them. Some gods would say his actions would be downright evil if not for his targets.
    • However, he is wary for the arrival of a certain Sergeant that nearly did him in when he was a mortal. Some gods say one can always make him fidget whenever he hears this phrase
  • Bad guys should NOT by any circumstances mistake him for the Boy Genius over in the House of Technology. Anyone who would want to do harm to the boy will receive an extra-painful torture session. The kid Dexter thinks his namesake is absolutely terrifying.
  • Looks to the Punisher as a stalwart ally due to similar philosophies in dealing with bad guys. It's not uncommon seeing the two together to take down mobsters.
  • Is absolutely despised by Batman. A staunch opponent of killing criminals, he is not fooled in the least by his facade. It doesn't help that Dexter goes after many of his rogues gallery. It really says something when he sometimes teams up with the Joker to stop him.
  • One would think that he would be in good terms with fellow criminal killer Light, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Both accuse the other of overstepping their bounds and strive to kill the other. While Light does not have Dexter's full name, the later's has not been able to track down the former's whereabouts.
  • There is some confusion as to whether Dexter wants to team up with Jason Todd or kill him himself. On the one hand, the Red Hood's style fits him well. On the other hand, his initial resurrection killed quite of few innocent people. Dexter decided to let him be for now.
  • Is surprisingly nice with children. It helps that most do not know of his true dealings. It's that reason that Stringtrap is among his top priorities to slay.
    • Is also distraught that children themselves are capable of such evil. An encounter with Hansel and Gretel caught him offguard, barely escaping with his life. He's now ready to deal with the creepy twins, even if it means putting them down for good.
  • Despite disliking the methods, Dexter knows better than to mess with most assassins in the pantheon such as Ezio and Strider. But at least one assassin took interest to taking him out. While he was resting in his innocent persona, he was attacked by a knife-throwing assassin. Luckily, he managed to fend her off and identified his assailant. Turns out Katarina was hired to kill him, most likely hired by the GUAE. Every know and then the two face off once more, usually with Dexter escaping.
  • Not everyone gets scared when they find out about his hobby. When he stabbed a couple of pedophiles after Kevin McCallister, he gained favor from the God of Booby Trap Warfare. Dexter has made it clear that anyone who dare messes with the kid would get a slow, painful death.
  • Rumor has it that the Jigsaw Killer is preparing a diabolical trap specifically for Dexter. He was rather interested with the man's hobbies and hopes to use his urges against him.
  • One of the first gods to deduct that Dexter's not who he seems was Henry Jekyll, much to the former's surprise. It wasn't until he tracked down the cause of a recent ruffling of civiliansthat he found out why. After an intense battle with Hyde, he managed to follow the brute and he him transform to his meeker form. Though he could have killed him despite his injuries, Dexter decided to let him go, seeing to much of himself in the scientist. However, there is no doubt the The Bay Harbor Butcher will keep an eye on his alter ego.
  • He has also been approached by Rem, upon hearing of how similar he was to Light, to be asked to spare Misa if he comes across her. It wasn't until he heard about why she did what she did with Light that he fully understood her situation, and agreed to at least put her at the very bottom of her "to kill" list, which Rem accepted. Upon hearing more about Dexter himself, Rem also began to pity him, and has agreed to keep close tabs on him, talking about who really deserves to die here. While she is uneasy, as he was Faking the Dead to escape into the wild to keep his loved ones safe from his killing urges, she is growing more trusting of her than she is to Light.

     K' 
K', God of Anti Heroic Substitutes (K-Dash, Kay Dash)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/k13_4407.jpg
  • Theme Song: KD-0079.
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Red Gloves on Fire.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Clones (But not in the traditional sense, mind you), Darker-Than-Predecessor Heroes, Playing with Fire, Cool Shades, Stoicness, Good Douchebags With Hearts of Gold, Blowing People Up With Thumbs Down, Disliking KOF Tournaments Yet Joining It, Characters Who Are More Popular Overseas Rather than His Home Country.
  • Domains: Combat, Heroism, Fire, Clones
  • Followers (AHS aspect): Azrael (to Batman), John Walker (to Captain America), Dark Flash, Eric O'Grady (to Ant-Man), Kendra (to Buffy Summers), Keppler (to Gil Grissom), Miranda (to Shana)
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: K9999, Rugal Bernstein, Rau le Creuset, Brand
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Iori Yagami, Ash Crimson (the latter was a former enemy)
  • Pitied by: Alexstrasza
  • One would expect the person with such a title to be a laughing stock. And yet K' managed to turn it into a respectful position. There was a chance that taking over Kyo as the star of King of Fighters would cause a backlash, but he managed to nurture his own group of fans. He was also able to maintain his popularity while many of his own peers fell by the wayside. Kyo may have taken back his spotlight (and he does go in a pissing contest with the man at times), but K' for the most part is content with his current rank.
  • Despite his portfolio, he doesn't associate himself with Guts or think of replacing him. However, in any case a straightforward hero is out of commission, he's always ready to temporarily take the place... even if that means making the mission, adventure, or what-have-you a little darker...
  • He also wants to make it clear that he has no intention of jumping ship over to the GUAE. Brand thought he could win the white haired kid, focusing on his anger on his upbringing. All that did was to get himself hit with his Chain Drive.
  • Yes, he really never runs out of glasses. And no, he doesn't ever lend any to Guzma. He thinks the kid is a total dork.
  • When he realized that he had an Evil Counterpart of sorts in the Pantheon, namely Rau le Creuset, K's response was to confront him. When Rau talked down to him, K' put his hand forward, ignited it and smirked. The resulting inferno destroyed Rau's temple, which took weeks to rebuilt. Rau managed to get some payback, stripping K' of his rule over clones. Kyo theorized that K' just can't help buy wonder what would happen if he ended up just as Nihilistic as Rau.
    "I'm unimpressed with your bullshit... You're going down, even in your giant mech."
  • Is rather impressed to see Kula Diamond joining the ranks of the Pantheon. However, don't talk to him about the rumors of them being a couple. The last Deity who brought up the rumors around him ended up with a sizable lump on his head. With that said, there are plans to add their teammate Maxima into the fold.
  • Still holds a grudge with Ash Crimson, even when it was revealed Ash's deeds was a ruse. To him, Ash's fate was the perfect end for that character.
  • Iori doesn't pretend that he doesn't like K' In fact, he thinks of the clone as nothing more than a defect. It makes any teamup to be strained, even if they have the same goals a lot of times.
  • If one wants to bring K9999 out of the Fallen, K' is the last person one should ask about. He considers him as a complete monster, and that's saying something from a clone who usually sympathizes with most of them. K9999's harassment of him as well as Kula is an indelible mark against him. K9999 still regards K' as his ultimate rival, even as K' has long since given up on it.
  • Has interesting conversations with Squall from time to time. The gunsword user gets frustrated whenever he is called "Cloud but with even more angst", Not only that, Cloud remains far more popular than him. K' does remind him that Squall does have his fans that have endured over the years.
  • His followers aren't well received in the superhero community. Many of them served to be a Darker and Edgier counterpart of them as to coincide with the nineties. Virtually none of them have managed to stick, and most of them failed to be that popular in the first place. K' hopes that he can train potential followers to be better.
    • One substitute did manage to ascend. Superboy managed to have an enduring enough of a fanbase to ascend into the Pantheon. He is no longer Superman's replacement, but remains the most popular Anti-Hero Substitute in the Pantheon, mostly by reforming himself.
  • Buffy also isn't much of a fan of K'. Most of her replacements ended up running amok at the expense of the Scoobies. Her anger has lessened somewhat with Faith becoming a better person.
  • Gil wasn't sure what to make of K'. His replacement didn't gel well with his work mates, but he was good at the job. He also won't have wanted the man die as he did on his world.
  • Was surprised to find a dragon right at his door step. It was Alexstrasza, the Goddess of Purifying Flame. She was surveying all of the fire deities in the Pantheon and found him to be an intriguing place. While most in the Pantheon have a hard time in the Pantheon, she recognized that he has had a rough life and wasn't used to companionship. While K' has refused the pity party, he didn't shoo the dragon away, a sign that he may have liked the company after all.

     Sam and Max 
Sam & Max, Gods of Heroic Comedic Sociopathy (President of the United States of America, High Priest of the Sea Monkeys, Little Buddy (Max))
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/samandmaxfreelancepolice.jpg
  • Theme Song: Theme of Sam & Max Hit the Road
  • Lesser Gods ( The original Max had Greater God/Overdeity powers when in combination with the Toys of Power)
  • Symbol: The Freelance Police Shield
  • Alignment: Chaotic...Something-We-Don't-Know
  • Portfolio: Heroic Comedic Sociopaths, Careless Collateral Damage, Cruelty Made Fun, Police of Questionable Authority, Variable Conscience, Talking Animals
  • Domains: Partnership, Banter, Chaos, Freelance Police
  • Allies: Sybil Pandemik, Faust
  • Opposed by: Any villain who takes themselves too seriously, innocent civilians, Senator Armstrong,
  • Followers: Belkar, Dangeresque
  • Feared by: Clu
  • As the only one of the duo with a semi-functioning conscience, Sam adds the "heroic" to Max's "vessel of unbridled sociopathic terror", by pointing the lagomorph in the direction of evil-doers. Neither one will shy away from excessive collateral damage in the pursuit of justice, and as a result an entire wing of Hell is devoted to innocents who've been killed or corrupted in the wake of Sam & Max's gleefully oblivious destruction.
  • Oddly enough, Sam & Max weren't in line for this position. They simply showed up and happened to complete the three complex rituals necessary to prove their right of ascension. We choose not to investigate what happened to the other candidates and why the parchments smell funny. Sam's promise that he'd let Max beat us with our own kidneys if we don't stop asking questions had little to do with it.
  • Some say that Commissioner Gygax called these two to stick around specifically in case Xanatos makes too great a power play. The actions of Sam & Max cannot be planned nor predicted by anyone, especially those who try to make Unwitting Pawns of the pair - as many a thwarted mastermind will attest.
  • Max occasionally plays poker with the Heavy, Tycho, and Strong Bad. Sam also hangs out in the speakeasy the four play in, but has also engaged with some poker with fellow god Ashley Williams, who has shown respect for Sam's adventures in saving the world, Brock Samson, who is a follower of Guy Shishioh, and Claptrap, with GLADOS as the dealer.
  • Max's case has also come into question as he is actually an alternate timeline Max due to the original Max becoming an Eldritch Abomination and destroyed by thousands of missiles. Sam doesn't seem to mind, though.
  • Was great to hear their good friend Sybil entering the Pantheon. Max is still determined that her job should be guilt slinging considering she helped name the trope in question.
  • If they are in the vicinity when a phone starts ringing, RUN. The two will immediately scramble into a mad dash in order to get it and most likely cause a lot of collateral damage when one of them (mostly Sam) finally gets their hands on it.
  • No one knows how Max pulls out all of the inventory he has on him (since he doesn't wear clothes). He'll reply that it's "none of your damn business" if anyone asks.
  • The two have the unique distinction of being the only people that Clu is actually terrified of. The fact that they once destroyed the internet of their world using a biological weapon may have something do with it.

     Travis Touchdown

  • Herald: Shinobu (self-appointed apprentice)
  • Allies: Rey Mysterio]''' [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} Asura, Scott Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Luke Skywalker''', Deadpool (On a good day), Konata Izumi, Niko Bellic, Shovel Knight.
  • Rivals: Kenpachi Zaraki, all Humongous Mecha and their pilots, all Kaiju (especially Godzilla)
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Carrot Ironfoundersson, Kratos
  • Friendly Rival: Undyne
  • Enemies: Mr. Freeze, Pearl Forrester, Steven Armstrong, Gohma Vlitra
  • Worthy Opponent: Raiden, Henry Cooldown, Margaret Moonlight
  • Travis's ascension was rather.....unconventional. He ascended due to paying his way in, after amassing enough funds to requisition a battle with some unimportant god. Said deity's sound defeat was enough for Travis to be deified. His first words upon ascension?
  • Travis is an avid wrestling fan, and so he has befriended and allied with many wrestlers in the Pantheon who can stand him. He's even had a few unofficial matches to seal the deal! While he was quite capable already from his time before godhood, his exhibitions with wrestling's greatest have served to make him a much more superior master of suplexes, chokeholds, special moves and pins.
    • Rey Mysterio instantly hit it off with Travis when the latter first approached him. Their friendship was only solidified when Travis offered him one of his spare beam katanas after Rey showed him his sword collection. Travis has since vowed to personally help the collection grow, causing countless other gods to shiver in distress.
      • Travis had a fangasm regarding the presence of the Masked Luchador out of them all, El Santo, in the pantheon. He had such a hard time keeping it together when he went to get Santo's autograph. That was one of the happiest days of Travis's godly life.
  • He eventually gained the attention of Asura due to having sworn revenge on the UAA for what the did to him and his fellow ranked assassins. They became allies when Travis also vowed to help Asura destroy the Gohma Vlitra for good.
  • Scott is also good friends with Travis. This was after they had gotten to talking one day over lunch, after they had caused a scene over a misunderstanding. They had a lot in common. Both are huge geeks who challenged and defeated numerous opponents for the sake of a girl they liked, they have a habit of breaking the 4th wall on a regular basis, and they both grew out of being supreme dickwads to settling for almost decent heroes. They're still kind of jerks, though.
    • Scott Pilgrim is actually thankful for Travis actually respecting him enough to not only not hit on Ramona, but to also help protect her should she be threatened by someone, namely Gideon.
  • Had a mecha in the mortal realm known as the "Glastonberry" that he had to scrap for funds. After working at it a bit he eventually managed to scrounge up enough funding to have it rebuilt for his personal use in the Pantheon. He uses it to challenge larger than life opponents.
  • Shockingly, he managed to successfully hold his own against Raiden in a duel. The fight had drawn the attention of the entire House of Justice but since no damage was done (and because the fight itself was so awe-inspiring) he was let off with just a warning. He now considers Raiden a Worthy Opponent and has begun to train for their eventual rematch. He's still a little uncomfortable about him sounding remarkably like his older twin brother.
    • Speaking of his brother, Henry regularly seeks him out to fight with him. Somehow this happens every time Travis is in a compromising position. Henry lets him finish before they start dueling, though.
      • Related, but Travis has also been forced to duel Kenpachi Zaraki numerous times. He never wins, but he gets closer each time. Zaraki is gleeful of the idea of Travis's potential to be a better challenge for him.
  • There are many, many goddesses in the Pantheon he lusts over, not the least of which are primarily located in the House of Lust. However, he never makes any advances on them. This is both due to having a thing for Sylvia Christel and the following:
  • Travis despises everyone who takes advantage of others to use their shortcomings for their own gain. This made him a natural enemy of Senator Steven Armstrong, who took advantage of desperate mercenaries in his crusade.
  • Due to their shared love of anime, he and Undyne get along. On the same lines, Travis is absolutely smitten with Konata.
    "Moe~"
  • To his surprise, after so long with just his brother in the Pantheon, Margaret Moonlight herself ascended. He once more managed to defeat her, but not before admitting he still remembered her song. He sometimes fights her just to hear it.
  • Is making a grand return which has him fighting through the worlds of various gods. Many were shocked to learn that one of those worlds belonged to Shovel Knight of all deities. He's been training with said shovel-wielding knight recently.

  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Homer Simpson (from Homer's side)
  • Rivals: Eric Cartman

  • Opposes: Anyone who annoys him in any way, Seth MacFarlane, The Count of Monte Cristo
  • Admires: William Shakespeare
  • A showdown of epic proportions was brewing in the House of Vengeance. Two deities held the title God of Revenge: The Count of Monte Cristo and Dan. And neither of them were willing to share. Things boiled over when Dan's car and Edmond's carriage crashed into each other. Both swore revenge, delivering every prank and dirty trick imaginable over a period of days. In a showdown in the House of Nature, Dan emerged victorious, tossing a battered Count into a river. With that, Dan laid claim to the title himself.
    • But that would not be the end of the Count. Two weeks was all it took for the Count to enact the most sadistic, debilitating and downright cruel plot of revenge the Pantheon had ever seen. The Court of the Gods had no choice but to hand it over to the Count once more. Dan managed to remain in the Pantheon on sheer willpower (so he claims; the Count actually saw to it that Dan was reinstated), picking up Anti-Role Model in the hopes of taking the title back from the Count.
  • Has a love-hate relationship with all of the Equestrian gods in the Pantheon, but he respects Fluttershy most of all for tending to animals. She's the only one other than himself who is allowed to tend for Mr. Mumbles.
    • Some have theorized that he is in a relationship with Pinkie Pie, due to them often being seen together in adds and paired in many fanworks. But no one has been able to get a straight answer from Pinkie, while the deity who asked Dan, unfortunately interrupted Dan's favorite show… and no one else has volunteered to try.
      • Of course, considering Dan is a human and Pinkie is a pony, it's unlikely. Then again, Pinkie has a human form, so the possibility, however slight, is still there.
    • Discord has shown a lot of interest in Dan's potential to bring chaos, onto just about anyone, thing, or abstract concept. Understandably, everyone has expressed worry over what would happen, if Dan had the power of the chaos spirit by his side. Discord may not be villainous anymore, but someone as spiteful as Dan with Discord's power is honestly a terrifying thought.
  • If there's anyone who could fit the role of a horrible role model, it's Bender. The robot even entered a tv show as himself, with the predictable result. Not that it mattered to Dan; the two get along nicely.
    • The same could have been said for Cartman...if not for the kid's eagerness to exact revenge on those who fault him. Thus, the two enact their revenge plots on each other...or anyone who tries to call them out for it.
  • Homer doesn't approve of many of Dan's schemes, but he does admit to paying lip service from time to time.
  • Bugs just loves to poke fun at Dan, mainly due to disliking his methods of revenge and being a bad role model to kids in general. Their feud is ongoing with no end in sight.
  • Seth Mac Farlane met up with Dan in the Pantheon, hoping to have a chat with the man. The God of Cutaway Gags hoped that Dan's new position would help bring more of his characters into the Pantheon. It was a proposal that was promptly rejected. Dan may not be liked by many in the Pantheon, but at least he admits it. That and many of his enemies deserved the retaliation (at least to him). Dan followed up by kicking Seth out of his temple, warning him never to return.
  • Despite his lack of intelligence, he is quite knowledgeable in the works of William Shakespeare. Likewise, the artist may well be the only person in the Pantheon he doesn't have beef with. The poet would rather not delve too deep into the matter, preferring Dan's silent appreciation of him.

  • Theme: As Time Goes By
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The Rick's Café Americain sign
  • Alignment: Started off as True Neutral. Became Neutral Good by the end of the film.

  • Avatar: Humphrey Bogart
  • During World War II, Rick was a cynical expatriate living in Casablanca, working as a manager of his nightclub visited by Nazis, Vichy authorities, and the resistance, none whom Rick sticks his neck out for. That all changed when his Old Flame Ilsa Lund and her husband, resistance leader Victor Laszlo, arrived there, prompting Rick to choose between his love and helping Laszlo escape Casablanca to continue his fight against the Nazis. In the end, he lets Ilsa board the plane and he begins his beautiful friendship with Captain Louis Renault. It is because of this act that he ascended to the Pantheon.
    • It is also due to his film’s iconic status that it became a tradition for the House of Theater to provide annual showings for the film.
  • Although little is known about Rick’s past or why he can’t return to his home country, it was known that he fought the fascists in Spain in 1935 as well as running guns in Ethiopia in the following year.
  • One of the first gods he came across was the Super Soldier himself, Captain America, who heard how Rick was becoming a patriot. Once Rick was surmised with how the captain can drink without getting drunk. Nevertheless, he has great respect for the captain’s motivations and actions. It helps that the two shared the same 1940s setting (at least Cap did before being frozen and brought to the modern age).
  • Became acquainted with Jeanne d’Arc as he found her capable of being a good leader. Somehow, she also reminded him of Ilsa right down to her appearance.
  • Speaking of Ilsa, the House of Love sympathized with him over the fact that he did not get her at the end of his story.
  • Was surprised to see his avatar Humphrey Bogart in the Pantheon. Sometimes, the two can be seen drinking and exchanging conversations with each other.
    • And speaking of avatars, at least a few actors back in the mortal realm tried (and failed) to recapture Bogie’s portrayal of Rick.
    • Once, Bugs Bunny and company put on a production in the House of Theater that homage and parodied Rick’s adventures during his time in Casablanca. Rick was pleased with how it turned out.
  • Turns out Rick is not the only one who experienced a turn from neutrality. Both Vegeta and Sasuke made Heel Face Turns after going through the revolving door. Viral was a guy just following orders and trying to keep his cause until he made a Heel-Face Turn.
  • His opinion towards Nazis has changed since he shot Major Strasser. Because of this, the Red Skull sees him as another target that needs to be disposed. Rick also doesn’t like HYDRA and Millennium due to their close ties with Nazis.
    • Rick also approves Takeshi Hongo and Hayato Ichimonji’s fight against a Nazi-esque organization called SHOCKER.
  • Recently struck a friendship with Indiana Jones as both of them were considered to be very cool and tough guys, not to mention their similar experiences with Nazis.
    • He is also on good terms with Captain Malcolm Reynolds as both were veterans of a civil war who turned to cynicism and/or disbelief after their respective sides lost.
  • He tries to stay as far away from Dot Warner as possible considering she apparently once jumped onto him and kissed him.
  • "Here's looking at you, kid."
