    Asura 
Asura, God of Unstoppable Rage who Fought the Heavens Above ( Asura the Destructor, Primarch of the Angry Marines)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Asura_mad_8126.png
  • Theme Songs: "In Your Belief", "Asura Unleashed" (When REALLY Angry), One Who Destroys the Ring” (When transforming into his Destructor form)
  • Greater God Likely an Overdeity in his Mantra Form, Full Blown Overdeity in his Destructor form.
  • Symbol: His Mantra Halo when he was a member of The Eight Guardian Generals
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Vengeance, Rage beyond all comprehension, Rescuing his daughter, using multiple arms, having Higher transformations than just his Multi Armed form, Ungodly Strength, Energy Projection, Destroying Planet sized objects with his bare fists, planet sized final form, Punching out a creator god.
  • Other Houses: Main House Other Gods 2, Anger
  • Daughter: Mithra
  • Followers: Ahria (Asura's very first), Bakumi Moriyama (a devotee of indomitable fury).
  • Allies: Son Goku, Dante, Other Combat deities, Yasha, Augus, Naruto, Shizuo Heiwajima, Jin Kazama, Pit, Fred Rogers, Joel, Lucifer, Twilight Sparkle, Hyodo Issei, and assorted companions, people that are sensible enough not to make him angry in general.
  • Enemies: Deus, Gohma Vlitra, The Golden Spider/Chakravartin, Kratos, Relius Clover, Kazuya Mishima, Ghetsis Harmonia, Sasuke Uchiha, Needless Kane, Lu Bu, Gendo Ikari, Raynare, the GUAE Trollkaiger, basically anyone who manages to piss him off and isn't repentant about it.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Nagi Sanzen'in and Hinagiku Katsura (both one-sided on their part)
  • Good Counterpart to: Raul Menendez
  • Ascended after everything he went through was shown to the other members of the Pantheon, in which almost everyone nearly SHAT themselves at his raw power.
  • Has a major fatherly instinct, and really wants his daughter Mithra to ascend to the pantheon to be with her. Is also pissed off at abusive parents, and has at one point almost destroyed the House of Family with the aid of Devil Jin, intent on destroying Relius Clover after witnessing the latter attempting to "experiment" on his son Carl. Kazuya and Heihachi Mishima weren't spared from Asura's tremendous anger, either.
  • Is often compared to Akuma. The two had a fight so massive that it took 500 years to conclude. Who won the fight is still up in the air.
  • Recently took Sweeney Todd's place as the God of Vengeance and Rage. To this day, no one dares to speak about it, as it was not pretty. Even most of the other violent deities in the house hid in terror after it happened.
  • Despite similarities between the two, Asura despises Kratos with a passion for his carelessness towards humanity in how he kills them with no remorse, even if they are innocent villagers. It brings to mind of other Demi-Gods that he had fought before ascending to this Pantheon.
  • Since Asura has had less than ideal encounters with gods in his life, he rarely visits the Pantheon, or even his own temple. Although he does go to the Combat Pantheon every now and again to keep his skills sharp, and he has another temple there he uses to rest up.
    • On multiple occasions Asura has been seen with another fighter, Yasha, when visiting the Combat Pantheon. Although he hasn't ascended (at least not yet) and he looks more calm then the raging Asura, the gods tend to give him space, since he seems to be the only one on par with Asura. This thought has given Melkor much to worry about.
      • Unfortunately for Melkor, Deus's ascension ultimately led to Yasha becoming part of the Pantheon as well.
  • Asura gives his blessing to anyone who has been betrayed and seeks revenge. But this blessing comes with a warning, as he tells those who follow him that they should always be careful managing their rage, lest it consumes them. This doesn't mean that he accepts followers, due to his stance against gods.
    • He keeps a watchful eye on Guts, who almost lost himself to his own rage and vendetta against Griffith, for this very reason. This is also why he utterly dislikes Sasuke Uchiha, because he thinks he's not worth carrying the torch of 'revenge' since his mind is too weak to handle it. "A whelp who doesn't know his place does not deserve to fight for rage and revenge!"
      • His opinion of Sasuke have softened recently however, since he now has a wife and daughter which he protects fiercely much like Asura. He wishes the young man luck and gives him his blessings for being a protective father...even one that wasn't around for a long time. Sasuke in return promised to protect Mithra whenever he can. Asura is also giving his support in getting Sakura(and possibly Sarada) accended, so the Uchiha family can be together again.
  • It is common knowledge in the pantheons that Asura, in the rare instance that he visits, should be given a very wide berth, since an angry Asura is very bad news.
  • He's formed a strange friendship with Pit of all people. Probably because both of them actually like humans and have fought the entirety of their lives to protect them, plus having to fight some really Jerkass Gods in that effort. Some have also compared Asura's father instinct with Pit's desire to protect his goddess.
  • Making Asura mad has been voted "The most idiotic thing anyone can ever do" by the House of Mentalism, Asura has shown no objection, since he knows that meant having more time to himself and his daughter. Even Hazama refuses to troll him, after a mere attempt caused Asura to use Hazama as target practice for his Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs for three whole days. Hazama was forced to apologize to prevent a bigger beatdown, and the two have agreed to never speak of it again.
    • There is also an incident regarding Lu Bu mocking him for his theme. The end result: Asura delivering the biggest No-Holds-Barred Beatdown the Pantheon has ever seen. And thus the universal agreement that pissing off Asura is a really bad idea.
  • Cell once attempted to absorb Asura in order to obtain his powers for himself. The result was a massive No-Holds-Barred Beatdown in which Asura completely floored Cell. Cell even used his Solar Kamehameha in an effort to kill him, and it looked for a moment it would work, but even that failed against Asura's Mantra form.
    • Cell apparently did receive a MASSIVE power boost afterwards, when he recovered from near death. Whenever Asura appears, however, he immediately leaves for the safety of his temple.
  • Asura is one of the few beings to take Mister Rogers head on. They ended up tying and became good friends afterwards.
  • Is actually pretty chill in regards to Lucifer, especially because they both share the same ideas about giving any asshole from above a good asskicking for trying to mess with them or those under their protection, and since one of Lucifer's similarly named generals fell trying to oppose YHVH, Asura offered his help if Lucifer decides to take on heaven again (presuming Naoki Kashima isn't around to lead Lucifer's armies) and put his knuckles across the Great Will's face.
    • Which he will soon be doing as YVHV provoked Asura's wrath by targeting Madoka. He was amongst the first to sign up for the Pantheonic Rebellion.
    • Also has high levels of respect towards Luka, Lucifer's son, for both his desire to protect the innocent and his efforts to make coexistence possible between different races, something he is keenly aware of the problems of ever since the Seven Deities and humans. He doesn't even mind his official position since Mithra's not the type of girl he attracts. When he learned about how the boy fought and killed Ilias, a Goddess not unlike Chakravartin, his respect only grew further, to the point he doesn't mind letting him hang around his daughter...provided he always keeps his hands to himself. He's also close to Luka's wife Alice because he reminds her of her own mother, and he feels sympathy for Alice having to watch her die in front of her. Given her nature, though, he keeps a close eye on her to make sure she doesn't "corrupt" Mithra though.
  • Several Evil deities, thinking they can defeat him while he's armless, have sent entire armies' worth of mooks. They taunt him, saying they'll take Mithra away from him again. Armed with only a shard of his master's sword, he eventually got so pissed off that this happened, resulting in a giant arm that wiped out hundreds of millions of minions like rice paper. Even armless, it shows Asura shouldn't be fucked with.
  • Has learned to suppress his Berserker/Wrath form by meditating with Cosmos. That being said, he has a MUCH easier time in accessing his Mantra form, terrifying almost everybody in the Pantheon.
  • Upon learning of the ascension of Gohma Vlitra, Asura has decided to form a task force in order to end it once and for all. Aside from Yasha (who helped him slay the beast), Travis Touchdown, Ryu Hayabusa, Kratos (albeit reluctant), Goku and Augus (just to be able to fight Asura after all is done) have joined him. Incidentally, Deus has been amassing the other Seven Deities for the same purpose.
  • Despite acknowledging they're all very good guys, Asura originally refused to be on friendly terms with the Chick Magnet Quartet, thinking that they could "corrupt" his daughter. He has even made the Quartet's leader, Hyodo Issei, promise him to never pursue Mithra, and beaten up Hayate Ayasaki when he stumbled onto Mithra after mistaking her for her Ojou-sama, Nagi Sanzen'in. The latter event, however, landed Asura on Nagi's shit list when she ascended to the Pantheon, and also earned him the mistrust of Hinagiku Katsura. Since then, Asura has decided to befriend the Chick Magnet Quartet and apologized to Hayate for his beatdown. Surprisingly enough, Asura has also given his blessing to Issei, for how he gets enraged whenever his harem is hurt.
    • After learning what Issei's ex-girlfriend Raynare did to him to give him self-loathing issues, Asura was imminently reminded of what his own former comrades did to him and is ready to support Issei in any way possible.
  • His absolutely gigantic Destructor form has piqued the interest of the Mecha piloting gods to try to take on said form. He has yet to respond to the challenges, but notes it as being interesting.
  • His reputation as the most Badass member of the Pantheon was cemented with his battle and victory against The Golden Spider (aka Chakravatin, the Creator).
  • Asura, despite his overwhelming power, has no real political power in the Pantheon, like Flandre Scarlet. Unlike Flandre however, this is mostly out of choice. We use the word mostly because whenever he is asked for a solution to any given problem, he always answers: "Punch it". Granted, this solution worked for most of his problems but the Pantheon's problems are a little more complicated.
  • It was noted by the Pantheon that when he and Evil Ryu did a Shun Goku Satsu against each other, The Kanji for "anger/hatred" popped up during the fight, which translates out to "Ikari". Some have wondered what would happen if an angry Asura and an angry Shinji Ikari fought (although Shinji's name is written with a completely different kanji)…
  • When asked about his opinion on Shinji Ikari's most recent actions he stated that although sacrificing the rest of the world along with himself was not the "right" thing to do he then admitted that if he and Mithra were in the same positions that Shinji and Rei were in he would have done the same. He then said that hoped that if Shinji decided use his newfound power to protect those dear to him at all costs then he would have Asura's full backing.
  • Occasionally lends his strength to the likes of Yu Narukami as the leader of Sun Arcana. Asura said he's going to need it, especially in his upcoming battle against Nyarlathotep.
  • Has been seen speaking with Caius Ballad a few times. Asura has shown a level of respect to Caius for his concern over Yeul, though whether or not he's aware of the lengths Caius took for her is unknown.
  • Gets along well with Eren, considering the two have a few similarities in losing a loved member of a family, being easily angered which is hardly a good option for an offender and being able to increase in size and power.
  • Asura absolutely loathes Sweet Tooth, both for the fact that he's a gleefully unrepentant serial killer, and that he happily killed his own family.
  • Both he and Kenshiro have expressed great respect for each other due to their similar family relations, morals and fighting styles. Although neither have vocalized it out loud, and since Ryu and Akuma have fought Asura to standstills, every member of the Pantheon (including some knowledgeable mortal combatants) secretly wish for and dread the day both Asura and Kenshiro will cross fists.
  • Just as many wish to see an epic duel between Asura and Kenshiro, equal interest is for Simon the Digger and Asura to challenge each other, what with their ability to become ever more powerful, attain planet-sized forms, and destroy creator-gods of their respective universes. Some whisper of a prophecy that the resulting explosion from their fists making first contact will create several new universes made of awesome and GAR (but result in an unsatisfactory draw).
  • Is happy that Twilight Sparkle visits Mithra whenever he's away, giving him peace of mind that his daughter won't be lonely. Though he tries to stay out of the same room with the pony at all costs due to her sounding eerily like his late wife Durga.
  • He is one of the few people outside of the God Emperor of Mankind who has earned the loyalty of Space Marines. In fact, one specific group even sees him as their Primarch. They are known as The Angry Marines
    • This has begun to worry Asura to some degree. Not only because those marines are a group of completely uncontrollable berserkers, but that it also creates the possibility that he might be one of the sons of the God Emperor.
  • Is somewhat wary of Bloody Marie. While he completely understands the lengths she would go to get revenge for herself and her best friend, he is worried about the item she used to achieve those goals, especially with the risk it presents to Mithra. However, Marie promised him she would do everything in her power to keep Mithra from becoming a Skullgirl, to which he was grateful for.
  • He has recently gained respect for Might Guy after the latter went so far as to activate the Eighth Gate to protect his student Lee. He was doubly impressed by his god-tier physical abilities as well as his appearance. As such, he helped defend Guy's position after Guy was left a cripple, which had caused some members to question his belonging in the House of Power.
  • Befriended Niko Bellic after hearing his past as a soldier in the Yugoslav Wars. He inmediately identified with him after hearing how he was betrayed by a comrade similar to Asura. He ocasionally joins Niko and his cousin Roman to go play some Bowling.
  • Has learned that there exists an opposite of himself within someone named Raul Menendez, who like Asura lost everything he loved. However, while Asura sympathies with everything that has happened to him, he cannot except the fact that Raul has decided to take out his anger on over one else. Asura swears that he will put a stop to Raul's madness.
  • Also has a spot in the Main House and the House of Emotion.

    Augus 
Augus, God of Odd Mentoring
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/s_Wrath_Augus_2918.png
  • Theme song: New World Symphony fourth Movement
  • Greater God (Being able to fight on par with Six-Armed Vajra Asura without even using his blade makes him this by default).
  • Symbol: His mantra halo.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Badass Old Guys, big and loud warriors, Cool Old Guys, Dirty Old Guys Blood Knights, EXTREMELY huge blades, Greed, Shameless display of manliness, Baretopped Old Guys, seeing with blind eyes.
  • Allies: Asura, Zaraki Kenpachi, Master Asia, Waldstein, all the other Combat deities that can give him a good fight or have similar enthusiasm when it comes to fighting, Esdeath, Jack Rakan.
  • Ascended upon his defeat from his former pupil, he decided to join the combat house after hearing that there were fighters there. Him and Kenpachi got off to a good start. In spite of Kenpachi being defeated every time, Augus says he always has fun with the strong deities of the combat house, and usually spend his time there exclusively.
  • He understands the fact that his blade is in Maximum Security, as they wanted to make sure no one could figure out the secrets behind the blades extending capabilities. He says that he never really uses it unless he's serious, though, and has only ever unsheathed the blade twice in his whole lifetime.
  • He's so strong that he can make Goku and even Bruce Lee sweat in a fight of pure martial arts with no ki attacks used. Their strength earns Augus his respect.
  • Being Asura's former mentor has its effect on the many evil deities in the pantheon, as they tend to try to avoid him whenever possible, due to the fact that he basically taught Asura everything he knows.
  • Due to just how big his blade can really get, he was offered the possibility of taking over Cloud and Jack Rakan as the God of Swordsmanship, but he declined, stating that while they use blades regularly, he only uses the actual blade when he finds an opponent worthy for it. When he does bring it onto the battlefield, he never unsheathes it unless in those circumstances; the sheath alone is enough to kill massive mooks with just a swipe. He does find jack Rakan to be a rather interesting character, and thinks he might actually be worthy of his own blade.
  • Accepted a challenge to a fight from Flandre Scarlet. He was able to defeat the poor vampire effortlessly without using his blade, though he found her nature of having immense thrills for fight to be rather complementary of his own, which earned her his respect, and that he's ready for a rematch anytime she wants to. Most of the pantheon fears the day it happens.
  • Many other deities swear they can hear the New World Symphony Fourth Movement by Dvorak playing whenever he gets in a fighting mood with a worthy opponent.
  • Augus refuses to fight for either the GUAG or GUAE, as their missions run contrary to his belief of fighting for the fight's sake. That being said, Lucifer had no trouble inviting him to the Grand United Alliance of Chaos.
  • It is once said that the swordsman Gilgamesh wanted the Wailing Dark as part of his collection. Augus responded by unleashing the sword and impaling him through his head. Augus would later clarify that he did not think of Gilgamesh as worthy of his blade, but thought of him as an "annoying little wannabe".
  • Whenever he isn't fighting in the House of Combat, Augus can be found drinking as much of the best wine as he can in the House of Food, or until they run out of wine, which is usually what happens. He has been spotted quite often in the House of Love as well, doing… stuff with the many beautiful females that inhabit it (although he's more prone to sparring with the more powerful Action Girl members like Bayonetta).
    "You fight, then you eat good food. You fight, then you drink fine wine. You fight, then you sleep with beautiful women. Hell, fight with beautiful women! That's what it means to live!"
  • Despite being blind himself, Augus has made no indication of joining the other Blind Weaponmasters. Augus himself has never felt particularly blind.
  • Also present in the House of Power.

    Flandre Scarlet 
Flandre Scarlet, Ax-Crazy Badass Adorable Extraordinaire
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/th06flandre.png
  • Theme Song: "U.N. Owen Was Her?"
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: A complex crest composed of her jeweled wings and her wand superposed over a rune circle.
  • Alignment: Not quite clear, due to complete insanity varies exclusively on the Chaotic Neutral scale.
  • Portfolio: Murderous insanity, cute but badass characters, concealed dirty little secrets, immense destructive powers, cheerful children, Creepy Children, people who are extremely old, yet don't look like it, stronger siblings, being a vampire, being more badass than your average vampire, cute and cheerful girls who are actually deadly monsters.
  • Domains: Vampirism, Destruction of Everything and Anything.
  • Allies: Remilia Scarlet, Sakuya Izayoi, Patchouli Knowledge, Hong Meiling, Deadpool.
  • Crazy Counterpart to: Ako Shirabe
  • Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame are her friends and opponents at the same time.
  • Other enemies: Kyubey, Terumi Yuuki (then again, which vampire doesn't have a beef against him?), Dracula, Dio Brando, Satori Komeiji
  • Sparring Partner: Yellow Heart
  • It would be tempting to classify Flandre as The Mother of All Tyke Bombs, but since she was not specifically raised to fight (in fact Remilia kept her in the basement solely in order to avoid her destroying things by accident) she averts the trope. She is however the very incarnation of Badass Adorable.
  • Being only a child, her actual influence within the Pantheon is weak, but since she's able to destroy everything and anything (world apparently included), no god will ever piss her off. EVER.
  • Originally, her sister Remilia was the only one capable of convincing her to stay in the Scarlet Devil Mansion's basement. However, Flandre escaped when Remilia was captured along with the Mansion by Dracula and Dio Brando, eventually drifting to this House by sheer battle ability. Eventually, Flandre was able to release her sister, arrange her deification, and reclaim their house with the other residents of the mansion and Seija Kijin of all people. Still, some of Remilia's influence has gone: Flandre's having too much fun with others that can actually keep up with her, and she is no longer willing to remain locked up in the basement now that she's tasted freedom.
  • At the time when neither Remilia nor Sakuya had been deified, she, for the first time in centuries, was totally free to roam around. Almost all non-Greater gods live in fear of hearing her tiny voice ask them, "Hello! Would you like to play with me?" Anyone who "played" with Flandre Scarlet and lived to tell the tale earns the respect of every god in the Pantheon, especially those of War. Most notable are, of course, Marisa and Reimu.
  • No-one seems to have noticed that Flandre does hang out with Scarlet Devil Mansion gate guard Hong Meiling. Hong Meiling does not seem scared of Flandre. Might she be the Chinese Girl with the leash, and no-one has noticed? Yukari Yakumo seems to know something about this, but she's not telling. Together with her sister, Flandre had Meiling moved from the rather undignified position of Goddess of Butt Monkeys to a more respectable post in the House of Defense.
  • It is currently unknown if she or Valvatorez (currently at only a fraction of his true power at this time) is the strongest vampire in the pantheon.
  • Mr. Rogers is the only one currently able to stop her without violence.
  • Flandre enjoys sparring with Yellow Heart because of how much fun they both have when fighting.

    Retsu Unohana 
Retsu Unohana, Goddess of Hidden Fury Beneath Kindness (Captain Unohana, The Gotei's 13's captain of the 4th division, Captain Mom, Yachiru Unohana, First Kenpachi)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/63f0df1a50bf2e46af8f41bd52a4e71a.jpg
Click here  to see Yachiru Unohana.
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: A blood-drenched kaiken over an unfurled white silken fan.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good on a good day. Either Chaotic Neutral or Chaotic Evil on a bad day, when assuming the Yachiru Unohana persona.
  • Portfolio: Healing, Leader of White Magician Girls, Mama Bear, Doesn't look like it, but REALLY REALLY SCARY when mad, Ax-Crazy Superpowered Evil Sides, Battle Lust.
  • Domains: Army, Healing, Protection, Care, War.
  • Lesbian life partner Lieutenant: Isane Kotetsu (Bleach)
  • Follower: Shamal ( Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha)
  • Allies: Litchi Faye-Ling, Faust Baldhead, Kenpachi Zaraki, Byakuya Kuchiki, Son Goku, Hakufu Sonsaku, the ToQgers (especially Mio and Akira Nijino
  • Enemies: Sousuke Aizen, The Vandereich, Yuuki Terumi, Relius Clover
  • It is said that merely forgetting to mention her name in briefings brings terror to the Pantheons.
  • If anyone tries to bully her followers, she will gladly stare at them, which is enough to make the bullies run away pissing on their pants. It even works on Kratos of all people.
  • Some rumors have circulated suggesting that she is somehow fond of Kenpachi Zaraki. Most of the gods also notice how she hangs around with her lieutenant all the time. These two hypotheses each have a goodly number of adherents, mostly depending on which one they believe is hotter (some believe that both at the same would be hotter than either alone).
    • This rumor once got to the hands of Aya Shameimaru and was posted into the headline of Bunbunmaru Newspaper...
  • She also would like to apologize deeply for the fans of Steve Irwin, as a stingray, somewhat similar to the form of her zanpakutou, caused his death and she couldn't save him.
  • Refuses to return to the city of heroes after an unknown, but presumably unpleasant incident.
  • At first, she was handled with the trust to find a cure for Arakune. Unfortunately, her house was raided by both Terumi and Relius Clover and her research stolen. Unohana took responsibility of that and decided to make both of them pay.
  • It was revealed that she is both the First Kenpachi and that her real name is Unohana Yachiru. An immediate warning was given to all members of the GUAE in every house: stay away from her at all costs.
    • Rumoredly perished, in her own accord, by training Zaraki Kenpachi. Fortunately for her, she lived on, thanks to Son Goku giving her a Senzu Bean before she would truly perish like Yamamoto.
  • Also present in the House of Profession as the Goddess of Healers.

Intermediate Gods

    Akeno Himejima 
Akeno Himejima, Goddess of Finding Pleasure Through Combat (The Ultimate Sadist, Priestess of Thunder, Priestess of Lightning)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dxd_5_4179.jpg
  • Theme Song: Gekijouron (lyrics here), alternatively Kurokami BEGIN TALE. Whenever she teases someone, this is heard echoing from a 1.5-mile radius around her. That happens at least once a day.
  • Intermediate Goddess (becomes Greater Goddess in Fallen Angel Mode)
  • Symbol: A crimson queen chess piece
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Cool Big Sisters, Fallen Angels, Combat Sadomasochists, Arousal through fighting, Seeking fights, Bondage, Sadomasochism inherited from her parents, Daddy problems (Until they come to terms.), Extreme amounts of teasing, Finger sucking as a way of healing, Powerful electricity-based spells, Raven Hair, Ivory Skin, Proper Japanese ladies, Shrine maidens, Dominatrix, What she aims to be for Issei, Having gorgeous purple eyes, Fandom-Preferred love interests, Having a recorded breast size of B102-W60-H89 cm/B40-W24-H35 in.
  • Domains: Violence, Sensuality, BDSM, Lightnings
  • Followers: Masane Amaha, Takeru Ibaraki.
  • Allies:
  • Conflicting Opinions on:
  • Enemies: Anybody who dares harm her ORC friends, Kefka Palazzo, Ornstein, Shinnok, Relius Clover, Raynare, Gul'dan.
  • Good Counterpart to: Hisoka
  • Tease buddies: Excellen Browning, Yoruichi Shihouin
  • Was considered to enter the Pantheon due to her incredible fighting prowess, which made her manage to keep up on her own with the seemingly unstoppable Kokabiel, who was later utterly curb-stomped by Vali. Ultimately ascended after Issei and Rias's efforts, similarly to Asia. The first thing she's done after arriving in the Pantheon was to go find Issei and reward him with a solo lap-dance for his efforts. The sudden barging in of Rias prevented this from escalating any further.
  • Loathes Kefka because of his enjoyment of watching innocent people suffer, while she only gets off by inflicting pain while actually fighting. Long story short, he reminds her way too much of Freed Sellzen.
    • She is also antagonistic towards Ornstein due to his numerous attempts to kill Issei, as he's a half-dragon.
  • Known to be one of the Pantheon's kinkiest goddesses. This makes her a favorite of Slaanesh, but she's not ultimately fond of him/her/it due to his/her/its utter depravity.
  • One time she challenged Excellen Browning on who can tease more gods in one day. The results are unknown. All in all, however, the are good friends and are sometimes seen training together.
  • She didn't like men until she fell in love with Issei. The patch-up with her dad has helped matters, too. Because of her past, she refuses to touch Relius Clover with a ten-foot pole, for being what she thought her father was.
  • As all three of them are fallen angels, she is also good friends with Panty and Stocking. Akeno does know that Panty's voice is painstakingly similar to Rias's, but did not know about Stocking's secret kinks... At least, until Mr. Slave told her. The miko fallen angel, however, like Issei's other haremettes, looks down over the fact that Panty often tries to bed Issei, but did say that she wouldn't mind it as long as she gets some of the action as well. Akeno, however, really does not know that Stocking is actually evil.
  • She usually sticks her nose on Issei's relationship with Rias, demanding from Issei to have a threesome with the two. While Issei is very much allured by this idea, Rias has sometimes protested, although she got over it later on.
    • In fact, whenever Rias and Issei sneak into the House of Romance to make out, she would also sneak in with the help of Panty and Stocking, and finally stick her nose on the couple.
  • After getting a place in the Chick Magnet Quartet's Battle Harem alongside the rest of the Occult Research Club, she became friends with Hinagiku Katsura, who is also part of the harem. Some gods did notice that Akeno and Hinagiku do sound a lot alike...
  • While certainly friendly, her relations with Kaori Kanzaki tend to be somewhat complex: while Kaori has accepted the fact that she and Akeno share similar voice and appearance, the fallen angel's personality and lineage can't help but remind Kaori of her "Fallen Angel Ero Maid" cosplay incident. This is further complicated by the fact that Akeno often dresses up as "Fallen Angel Ero Maid" to tease Touma Kamijou; since then, Kaori has given a warning to Touma to stay clear from Akeno, although the fallen angel is firmly rooting for Kaori to hook up with Touma... As his mistress.
  • Being a rather badass example of such, Akeno has gathered a good amount of respect from the Pantheon's other shrine maidens, including Himeko and Chikane. Of course, some gods (ones in the House of Faith in particular, barring, obviously enough, Xenovia and Irina) wonder how can she pass as a shrine maiden, to the point that they gave some slack to Reimu Hakurei about her behaviour, even if Reimu doesn't like that comparison that much. In response, Akeno points out that she inherited it from her dead mother... Only to cause even more confusion among the gods of that house.
    • Byakuren doesn't also seem to mind her, and praises that a demon like her would become a proper religious figure, even if Akeno isn't Buddhist. Outside of House of Faith, Clarice also things that there is no actual problem of demons being religious figures.
  • Akeno was positively outraged when she knew from Asia that Shinnok is planning to steal the Boosted Gear from Issei to gain its powers and become the only god of Amplifier Artifacts. Needless to say she's currently trying to thwart his plans together with the rest of the Occult Research Club.
    • Same thing happened when Akeno learned about Raynare's ascension: Akeno has vowed that if Raynare ever dares to lay a hand on Issei once again, she'll have some manners taught.
  • Haruka has shown some interest in her, saying that her being a masochist angel reminds her of a girl called Ryouna. She has stated that she is more than glad to give her "excitement" if she needs any. Not only, they've even discovered they sound a lot alike while speaking English...
    • Once Ryouna managed to ascend, she instantly became friendly with Akeno. Events when Akeno, Haruka and Ryouna are fighting each other are dubbed "The sexiest and most violent threeway in the Pantheon". Issei has once witnessed one of these battles, and almost had a huge nosebleed when hearing the three girls moan profusely while exchanging attacks over attacks. One particular time even involved Issei himself in the battle under Akeno's request. Of course, One Thing Led to Another.
  • She has found a kindred spirit in the Umbra Witch Bayonetta, whom she sees as a mentor/Cool Big Sis. She has asked Bayonetta to teach her some of her dances, with or without the summoning aspects along with sharing ideas of 'punishment' of her foes. She even joins her in her attempts to tease Issei, as Akeno finds her loved Issei's reactions quite amusing. Not only, Bayonetta is also fully approving of Akeno's desire to become Issei's mistress. Of course, though, Koneko isn't really approving of this alliance due to her dislike for Bayonetta. Akeno did try to change her ORC friend's view on the Umbra Witch, but she only managed to go from one-sided opposition to one-sided Teeth-Clenched Teamwork; Koneko still thinks she's a "slut".
    • Recently, she has gotten wind of Bayonetta's personal crusade to free her father Balder from the possession holding him. No stranger to the drama of dealing with her own, Akeno has pledged to help her friend any way she can. Likewise, Bayonetta has reciprocated this upon learning of Raynare's history with Issei, and has pledged to help Akeno out in the case of Raynare trying to hurt Issei once again.
  • Has the most complicated relationship with Luka out of all of Issei's harem. Her personality reminds him far too much of many of the monsters he's fought on his journey, more specifically of Alma Elma, the Queen Succubus and one of Alice's Four Heavenly Knights. On the other hand, she can sympathize with him towards both his feelings for his father, not having the best one with her's either, and his mother, a fallen angel like her old man. Still, that doesn't stop her from taking some pleasure out of watching him squirm uncomfortably whenever they spar.
  • In the future, Akeno bore Issei a son name Kurenai. She was also the first of the haremettes to get pregnant.
  • "Ara ara, ufufufu~"
  • Also present in the House of Lust.

Lancelot, without Mad Enhancement
Lancelot, with Mad Enhancement 
  • Intermediate God (Greater God in Mad Enhancement)
  • Theme Music: The Berserker and This Battle is To The Strong (when Mad Enhancement is activated), His Name Is Lancelot
  • Symbol: His sword Arondight
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral at day, Lawful Insane at night. Temporarily Necessary Evil.
  • Portfolio: The Shining Knight Who Turned Dark, default Berserker, Upgraded From History (in most cases), Error Prone Bravery, Too Powerful to Live, Eternal Arms Mastership, Fallen Hero.
  • Domains: War, Knighthood, Chivalry
  • Allies: Arthur Pendragon, Artoria Pendragon, Shirou Emiya, Sakura Matou, Shadow the Hedgehog, Arthur, Merlin
  • Rivals: Cu Chulainn, Benkei
  • Friendly Rivalry: Hercules and Arcueid Brunestud.
  • Enemies: Mordred, Gilgamesh, Kratos
  • Whenever Lancelot is in a battle, it's best not to come anywhere near him. Once he gets into a fight, his bloodlust takes over and he won't be able to tell the difference between foes and allies.
    • This has an unfortunately darker side as even innocents can come into his crossfire. Once his bloodlust subsides, he is wrecked with guilty at the innocents lost.
  • Even though Lancelot does battle with his trusty Arondight, he can use any weapons he can take his hands on, even his enemies, and use it like he trained with it for years.
    • It's not limited to weapons; phone poles, shovels, machine guns, fighter jets, mechs, and even the kitchen sink have all been use as his weapons.
  • Is said to look brutish and a bit ugly but his worshippers always make him look rather pretty. He doesn't put much care about it, just as long as he gets to show some chivalry.
    • Some say he got even more prettier when he got his new title.
  • His relationship with other Berserkers differs; he is friends and sparing partners with Hercules and the two bonded over having their bloodlust causing innocent lives to be lost and feeling guilty over it.
    • He doesn't care either way with Cu Chulainn, but the two have crossed blades with one another.
    • Was absolutely disturb when he heard the atrocities Kratos committed in his life and feeling no remorse whats so ever.
    • Much like Hercules, he is friendly with Arcueid Brunestud. The vampire seems to remind him of Arturia somewhat.
  • Crossed path with Benkei once in which the weapon master tried to take Lancelot's Arondight. After the two battle for an hour, in which Lancelot used Benkei's weapons against him, the two fell into a draw and each consider one another their rivals.
  • Was not pleased to learn of Mordred's ascension. He has since swore he will never let her lay a finger of harm on his King again.
    • Their confrontation came sooner then expected as the two battle one another on an open field, with both blaming the other for the fall of Camelot. Before things got too out of control, the two combatants were separated by a golden beam of light out of nowhere, stopping their fight. Neiither one of them knew that the beam came from Arturia herself, who was sadden at her two Knights fighting.
  • There were rumors that at night, Lancelot dons a black armor and black aura and reduces himself into The Berserker state. Nobody knew why he did that, some speculate that he really hurts himself over a certain crime he did for the King. One thing remains for sure: He became so powerful that he could beat Greater Gods at that time.
  • Was once portrayed by the God of Angst himself, Shadow the Hedgehog. Well, an alternate universe doppelgänger of him, who is more honour-bound than him, though Shadow doesn't really mind Lancelot.
  • Has nothing but hate for Gilgamesh because his treatment of his King, thinking her as nothing but a posession. It got to the point that Lancelot went into Mad Enhancement state and nearly beat the King of Heroes.
  • After spending months trying to avoid Arturia, the King of Knights finally confronted Lancelot. After telling her how much of a failure he was as a knight, he asked Arturia to kill him so he may atone. She did no such thing and told him that she never blamed or hated him and Guinevere and if things were different, the two would have had her blessing to be happy together. Lancelot could only weep as Arturia held her knight, finally finding resolve.
    • However, when the male Arthur ascended, it was a different story. Because this Arthur actually loves Guinevere, all the ugly emotions came back to haunt him. When he finally had the courage to confront King Arthur, the king couldn't seem to find it in himself to completely forgive Lancelot, though he praises what a brilliant and loyal soldier he is and agreed to let him rejoin the newly reformed Knights of the Round Table.

    Reyn 
Reyn, God of Combat Enthusiasm (Smelly Oruga, Silly Brute, Mean Reyn, Rain, Rein)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rein_6144.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Gunlance
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfoilo: Big Guy with Big Personality, The butt of so many jokes, Bulky Fighter with Low Speed who uses it to his advantage,The blue oni to Shulk's red, "Now it's Reyn Time!", Hot-Blooded Fiery Redhead, Those who grow to be strong warriors with a sense of compassion, BFG/BFS that doubles as a shield, Those who worry about being Overshadowed by Awesome, Fountain Of Memetic Quotes, Those who leave the thinking to others, The Big Guy.
  • Domains: Combat, Friendship, Idiocy (At least when it comes to his quotes), Loyalty, Protection, Weaponry
  • Allies: Shulk, Dunban, Melia, Riki (in a Vitriolic Best Buds sort of way), Chuggaaconroy, Augus, Rainbow Dash, Fiona Mayfield, Potemkin, Iron Tager
  • Enemies: Zanza, Metal Face, The Trollkaiger
  • Opposes: Itazura Grifers
  • Conflicting Opinion: The Lol Rangers, T.J Detweiler
  • Pities: Meg Griffin
  • Membership: Grand United Alliance of Good
  • His title was originally held by Augus, but due to the Court of the Gods noticing some Gods hold more than one trope, they have decided to move multiple tropes from already ascended Gods to those ready to be ascended. Reyn is one of them, and Augus agreed to relinquish one of his titles.
  • The day Reyn ascended was certainly a interesting one. The first thing he did upon ascension was to surprise Shulk with a side hug, and a nice slap on the back. And surprised the Monado Boy was, and it was a good one at that.
    • Of course, when Riki heard he ascended, he promptly knocked him over by bumping into his face (accidentally). He responded by grabbing the Nopon by his tuft. Riki didn't take it well. It's not like they're mortal enemies now, but they still have quite a bit before they drop their Vitriolic part of their friendship.
    • And when Chuggaaconroy heard that he ascended as well, Melia couldn't help but chuckle as she saw Chuggaa also hug and fawn over him. Reyn was appreciative, but quite embarrassed by the hugging and fanboying of one of his biggest fans.
  • Due to his status as Butt Monkey back in his home universe, Reyn has grown completely used to being teased/pranked by the Good-Aligned Gods of the Pantheon, due to being not exactly good with his praises, among other things. That said, he does get a little annoyed with some taunts occasionally, especially if it stems from Riki.
    • That said, he does feels sorry for Meg Griffin, due to the fact that unlike him, nobody in her universe ever gives her a break at any point, and the torments tend to go too far for her, and tends to comfort her from time to time.
  • In battle, Reyn tends to deal heavy blows to his enemies, and distract them with his taunting, leaving them open to attacks by others. The fact he can take the blows he deals don't hurt either. Some Gods do suggest a medic be on stand-by when he fights so he doesn't succumb to too much damage.
  • He is disgusted about the Trollkaiger's actions. To him, sometimes, they take their trolling too far for their own good, and will not hesitate to take them on with his friends if they attempt to piss him or his buddies off one too many times.
    • Likewise, he has mixed feelings about the Lol Rangers, as he knows their intentions are more good natured, but being the occasional butt of their jokes can get annoying to him.
    • As for the Itazura Grifers, he isn't really on good terms with them, and steers clear from them whenever possible. However, they do happen to draw the line at Trollkaiger-level trolling, and when the malicious trolling group shows up, Reyn and the Itazura Grifers will devise an Enemy Mine just to drive them off.
  • Has befriended Rainbow Dash, due to both of them spawning memorable quotes of their own, and their established sense of loyalty to their own friends. Reyn does wish to learn from her own sense of loyalty when it comes to protecting his own friends.
    • Has likewise been befriended by similar slow powerhouses Potemkin and Iron Tager, due to his slow but mighty power, plus, all being solders on the mortal plain don't hurt anyone. The trio do tend to have a friendly spar from time to time, and will lend a hand when Reyn and his friends take on Zanza or Metal Face.
      • Fiona Mayfield has also befriended him, mainly because she's also friends with Shulk, and that he's willing to teach her how to wield Camelot like he wields his Gunlance.
  • "Man, what a buncha jokers!"

  • Domains: Shinobi, Food, Youth
  • Allies:
  • Former Enemies: Hanzou Academy, Crimson Squad and Hebijo Academy
  • Enemies: Those who really are evil, Kyoko Sakura (little bit one-sided)
  • One of the students of Gessen Academy, Minori used to be hailed as Goddess of "Weaponized Food" due to her unusual fighting style involving. Though oddly enough, there wasn't a trope what would be directly associated with it, so she had hard time settling in. However, when gods noted that even though she is childish and has a silly fighting style, she isn't any less dangerous than her comrades. As such, she was given this new spot.
  • She is rather childish for her age, and even looks the part. She has a lot of energy, loves to play and eat sweets. Always keeping a smile, though she has her darker moments like how her parents are dead.
  • Kyoko Sakura got really mad at her when she originally ascended due to her thinking that she is wasting so much food. While Minori tried to calm her down by offering some food to her, Kyoko didn't listen and attacked. However, before things would get too out of hand, Yozakura dropped by and broke the fight. While she understands where Kyoko is coming from, that doesn't excuse her from attacking Minori, and says that if she attacks her again, she will break her spear and her arms.
  • Enjoys playing "battle" alongside other things with Eko.
  • Is seemingly getting some lessons from Hungary on how to wield her frying pan even better. Though she still prefers her bucket for fighting.
  • She tends to be one of top contestants to any foodfights what the House of Food has (when it involves just food, that is). Some other top survivors are Chase and The Three Stooges.
  • A boy calling himself Sora Shiun'in once tried to approach her due to his feat of beating couple of dudes with a lollipop stick. However, Yumi had warned about Sora beforehand, saying that she shouldn't trust him. As such, she challenged him to a variant game of rock-paper-scissors where the loser has to quickly defend their head from being smacked, and offered to use her bucket and frying pan for it. Sora accepted... only to regret later as Minori started to bash the bucket on Sora's head, causing his ears to ring for the entire day.
