  • Recently gave Dracula, among others, a power-boosting ring, as a sign of good faith.
  • Worships a still-Greater god named Morgoth, who is trapped in the Void beyond the realm of the Fallen. Claims that Morgoth invented evil, and that he's just holding position of Enemy until Morgoth gets out. All gods relating to prophesy have a tendency to giggle at this point, for reasons unknown.
    • Well, Morgoth is out now. And he's just set up shop in the Main House as the supreme God of Evil. Who's Laughing Now??
    • As it turns out, the gods of prophesy are doing the laughing. Morgoth is not pleased with how Sauron performed in his absence. Sauron has currently been assigned to swabing the orc-pits for the next four Ages.

The Jigsaw Killer, God of the Sadistic Choice.

Mandy, Goddess of Children From Hell

Sosuke Aizen (Bleach), God of Mind Manipulation (Captain Superman, Evil Superman, Captain Broken, "Sasuke" Aizen)

  • Symbol: A snake (what else?)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Bad Bosses, Those Who Commune With Snakes, Evil Counterparts, Evil Overlords
  • Domain: Chaos, Corruption, Death, Renewal, Scalykind
  • Sometimes Voldemort likes to hang around ninjas and go by the name of Orochimaru for giggles. Because of this it is quite uncertain whether the two gods are separate entities, two aspects of each other, or simply constantly impersonating each other.
  • Voldemort seeks to eclipse Sauron's portfolio. Secretly, he knows he hasn't really got a prayer.

Makuta Teridax, God of Chessmastership, Antidermis and possessing gigantic robots.

  • Followers: Davros (Doctor Who), The C'Tan (Warhammer 40,000), The Void (EverQuest II), Mantrid (Lexx)
  • Domains: Destruction, Evil, Rage, Strength, Tyranny, War
  • Seeks to absorb Sauron in order to transform into something powerful enough to take on O-Haruhi-sama and destroy reality. To aid in this endeavor, he also has his eyes on Light Yagami's tactical prowess, yet to Buu's dismay, Light has already anticipated Buu's attempt on his body and prepared accordingly.
  • * Upon developing omnicidal ambitions, Davros nearly became Majin Buu's High Priest, however he wanted his creations to remain. Therefore the position went to Sutekh the Destroyer.
  • It should be noted that there are no true followers of the God of Omnicidal Mania. They're all plotting the destruction of everything else, so backstabbing will inevitably occur.

  • Domain: Chaos, Corruption, Destruction, Evil, Planning, Scalykind, Tyranny
  • Followers: Dante, Numa Pergyll
  • Due to his/her unparalleled mastery of disguise on account of his/her Possession Jutsu, anyone at any time could potentially be Orochimaru. Orochimaru may or may not be Voldemort.

  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Butt Monkey, Ax Crazies, Chew Toys
  • Domains: Evil, Destruction, Wrath, Madness
  • Followers: Axel.
  • While the rest of the Pantheon mocks and scorns Black Mage, they all secretly worry about his psychotic ambitions. His climb up from Hell to the Pantheon was certainly worrying...

  • Domains: Evil, War, Politics, Racism, Terrorism
  • Opposed by: two thirds of the Pantheon but especially Captain America, Magneto, Lelouch Lamperouge, The Basterds, Master Chief, Raiden, Guts, Shana, Kitsurugu Emiya, Yuji Sakai, Setsuna F. Seiei, Homura Akemi, Madoka Kaname, and Sanger Zonvolt. He may be a Greater God, but their interference makes it hard for him to do anything.
  • Allies: Sauron, Khorne, Majin Buu, Darkseid, The Joker, The Millenium, Johan Liebert, Lord Voldermort, Clu, Mayuri Kurotsuchi, Kefka, Albedo Piazzolla, Luca Blight and Griffith. Swarm, as the Pantheon's other Nazi, is also technically on the Skull's side.
  • Is perhaps the most hated member in all the Pantheon, to the point that only the most depraved gods are willing to associate with him. And even they will randomly betray him. Memorably, he and the Joker once teamed up, only to end up trying to kill each other.

The Dark Kingdom, Gods and Goddesses of Monsters of the Day (The Negaverse)

  • Opposed by: The entire House of Magic, Himei Shoutan, Ryouma Nagare, Guy Shishioh, Kamina, Goku, Dante Sparda, Tommy Oliver and Sanger Zonvolt.
  • Were chosen for this position because the original candidates for the job, Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa were purified and turned into a human and a good witch, respectively.
  • Despite the large amount of opposition, The Dark Kingdom is actually one of the more powerful and successful evils in the entire pantheon. This due to the fact that they have thousands of Youma spies who have managed to infiltrate every single house of the Pantheon except for the Main House. Jadeite even managed to find ways to spy on the Council of Shadows.
  • Are secretly plotting to overthrow the Main House by somehow stealing all the Treasures of the Gods and feeding them to their leader, Queen Metaria who will then possess enough power to defeat all the upper gods and goddesses.
  • It is a holy act of worship for their worshipers to send armies one soldier at a time. For some inexplicable reason, none of them ever succeed at anything.

Palpatine, God of The Empire (Darth Sidious)
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: the Sith insignia
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: The Emperor, Galactic Conqueror, The Man Behind the Man, The Dark Side, Magnificent Bastards, Gambit Roulettes, Evil Chancellors, The Chessmaster, Having Planets Destroyed.

  • Followers: Charles di Britannia (Code Geass)
  • Upon his ascension, his former minions, Vader, Thrawn, Death Star and Imperial Missile Boat flocked to his side and once again swore their undying loyalty to him and his goals. This is source of alarm to many members of the Pantheon, since not not only does Palpatine have control over two super weapons but also of Vader's 501st Legion which gives him the resources to stage his own possible revolution against the Pantheon.
  • The words "POWERRRRRRRR! UNLIMITED POWERRRRRRRR!" echoed throughout the Pantheon as Palpatine first ascended.

Akuma, God of Evil Counterparts

Monsieur Zenith, God of Evil Albinos

Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal, The Prime Evils
  • Greater Gods. Could be considered Overdeities when unified
  • Symbol: The Icon of Sin
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Bonus Level Of Hell, Cosmic Horror Story, Eldritch Abomination
  • Allies: The demoness Andarial, Maiden of Anguish, and the Prince of Pain, Duriel. Have been known to consort with Palpatine
  • Opposed by: Tyrael
  • As brothers, the Prime Evils rule a sizable section of Hell (although still much less than half due to the growing issue of Pantheon overcrowding), and are often gathering followers from the other Evil Gods, much to their annoyance. They have thrice attempted to conquer the universe, and they get closer each time...
  • Because they represent the primal feelings of Hatred, Terror, and Destruction respectively, the Prime Evils hold immense sway over the Evil gods of Emotion. Since they also hold the title of "The Prime Evils", everyone evil is after them, if just to be called "Prime."
  • Have been known to play poker with various other gods seeking power. Especially the other rulers of negative afterlives, who get together every thursday for Poker Night, with chunks of domain being used as currency.

Millennium Earl, God of Nightmarish Smiles with Hearts
  • Demon God, unofficially
  • Symbol: A hat with a skull symbol
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Say It with Hearts, Deal with the Devil, Nice Hat, Slasher Smile, Omnicidal Maniac
  • Allies: The Clan of Noah, and anyone who enjoys slaughtering others so he'll have more souls to turn into Akuma, of course! ♥
  • Despite his fat and cartoonish appearance, this is a being that revels in death and destruction. He may have helped create the Death Note as well as unleashing Hinamizawa Syndrome in order to spread death and suffering.
  • It is unknown where all his hats come from, though some believe he sews them himself. Which raises the question of how he has the time to do it with all his Deal with the Devil schemes...

Master Xehanort, God of Hero Manipulation, Devils in Plain Sight, and Gratuitous Hand Gestures

Shigeru Akagi, God of Underground Mahjong and Faux Symbolism (The Genius who Descended into the Darkness)
  • Greater God and Dark Messiah
  • Symbol: Mahjong Tiles and Broken Enemies
  • Alignment: Neutral or Chaotic Evil depending on the situation.
  • Portfolio: Mahjong, Badass, The Plan, Unspoken Plan Guarantee
  • Domain: Gambling, Mahjong, Strategy
  • Allies: Itou Kaiji, Ten
  • Opposed By: Saki Miyanaga, Atem
  • Ever since his disqualification in the Final Four match involving the current Goddess of Mahjong Saki, Akagi quietly disappeared from the public eye to return into the darkness where he Dominated the Competition and among his victims the King of Games himself. There was two people who he met that managed to earn his respect Kaiji and Ten. Akagi is still awaiting the day a Worthy Opponent of HIS Caliber to cross his path.

Darth Nihilus, God of Hunger
  • Greater God

  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: The Power of the Void, Eldritch Abomination, Black Speech, Planet Eater, Cool Mask, The Dark Side, Bigger Bad, Omnicidal Maniac, The Heartless, The Unintelligible, Evil Counterpart

  • Opposed by: Luke Skywalker, Amaterasu, Lelouch, Pac-Man, Madlax, Jean Grey-Summers, Revan, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Daniel Jackson
  • Darth Nihilus does not seek power. His goal is to sate his endless hunger by devouring all life in the universe. He has merely aligned himself with those who he believes will be most useful in eliminating those that stand in his way, whether his allies are cunning/dangerous in their own right, share similar goals of complete annihilation with him, or who simply beings of great power that he can create bonds with in order to feed on their power.

Zero, God of Disproportionately Evil Villains in Light-Hearted Shows
  • Intermediate God
  • Portfolio: Eye horror, Hatred to peaceful things, Resurrection, Light Is Not Good
  • Domains: Evil, Chaos, Destruction
  • Allies: None.
  • Enemies: Kirby and his allies.
  • Discord used to hold this position, but it was felt that he was too dangerous to keep said position (and Zero was deemed more worthy of the title). The Elements of Harmony were used to turn him into a statue.
  • Overlord Zenon was supposed to be the replacement. However Meta Knight pointed out that Zero's bloody eye attack was in a E rated game. The fact that both Zero's game appearances were in games rated "E" secured Zero's position.
  • Often referred to as Zero-2, to avoid confusion with Zero.

Porky Minch, God of the dire side-effects of Time Travel, doing Heinous Acts for the hell of it, and Time-Travelling for potentially thousands of years without growing up mentally.

Ungoliant, Goddess of Abominations that Resemble Animals

Dr. Hell, God of Wanting Everyone To Kneel Before Him, Being Unashamedly Evil, Wanting To Conquer Everything, and Questionable Science.
