Pantheon: Food
Food and Drink

As one would expect, the House of Food is a massive dining hall connected to one gigantic kitchen, filled with every tool, appliance, and ingredient one can think of. Only the best culinary experts can step foot on the hallowed ground of this kitchen, and should they ever gain that honor, they will find themselves at the forefront of creating new foods, recipes, and if they're lucky, entire cuisines of their own design. They are also responsible for feeding the rest of the Pantheon, and because deities have to eat too, the cooks of the House of Food enjoy an unofficial immunity from harm by other deities. When a god breaks that immunity, they come under a lot of fire (especially from Gig, whose hotpod-avenging rampages are legendary even by divine standards) and are banished from this House, forced to subsist on bread crusts and whatever their mortal followers will sacrifice for them.

There are other, lesser kitchens, but they are all subservient to this one. A god trying to curry favor with the house has to spend a lot of time washing the many, many dishes.

There are only two food items of which these gods — even the hungriest and most gluttonous among them — are wary. The first is the dreaded "Delicious Fruit". Despite its easy-sounding preparation method (boiling it thrice) the Fruit is an item of great lethality and deadliness to those unable to handle it properly. The second is "Mystery Food X", which despite having been sealed away in the vaults, still appears from time to time to tempt unaware gods. Of course, this makes them a popular subject of Self Imposed Challenges.

While most of the tables are welcome for anyone, there is a special secret table reserved only for a specific group of gods known as the "Gourmet Racer Club". Admittance to this table is assessed by King Dedede, who decides who gets to sit with him. Most of the members come from the First Pantheon Gourmet Race he and Kirby set up on his arrival, but the King makes special consideration to anyone who curry favors with him. Those blessed enough to sit at the table tell tales of food wonders and quantities that Head Chef Kaga and his followers prepare just for them. Thor himself has stated the banquets served there would make Valhalla's own feasts look like mere appetizers. Most gods prepare themselves for whenever the next Gourmet Race will take place to earn a seat at the table.

Also while a Food Fight isn't uncommon in this house, the likes of Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, Yang Xiao Long, Jaune Arc and Pyrrha Nikos are the only ones who are heavily restricted to food items no bigger than a potato due to the fact that they have used other food items to mimic their weapons and because the last time they participated in one, they caused the House of Food to explode.

The Grand Chef Trio

The Guards of the House of Food

    Gordon Ramsey 
Gordon Ramsay, God of Perfectionist Cooking
  • Demigod, but more then capable of throwing Greater Gods out of his House if they anger him.
  • Symbol: A pitchfork flanked by the letters H and K, a Michelin Star, and/or a meat cleaver
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (often believed to be a Jerk with a Heart of Gold)
  • Portfolio: Jerkass Has a Point, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Badass, Laser-Guided Karma, Serious Business, The Mean Brit
  • Domains: Cooking, Rage, Fire.
  • Followers: Many chefs look up to Ramsay, valuing his knowledge and work ethic.
  • Allies: The Nostalgia Critic, The Angry Video Game Nerd.
  • Enemies: He has declared that anyone who even thinks of serving raw food should be thrown out of the kitchen (and has done it several times already). Upon his ascension, he realized that some Gods prefer raw food and has modified his menu to reflect this, but anyone who attempts to serve raw food to customers that didn't order it gets a tirade of expletives at a minimum.
  • The House of Food has been a lot louder since his ascension. He keeps his tone very civil and tranquil around customers and children.
  • Despite his well known temper, Ramsay has made friends and allies of everyone in the Food Pantheon, as well as several allies in the House of Commerce due to his business savvy and well known cooking empire
  • Some consider him to be a God of Emotion as well due to his constant outbursts. He maintains that he is a chef and his anger is a tool to make his fellow chefs learn from their mistakes.
  • He is also responsible for enforcing a code of cleanliness in the kitchen. Anyone that allows their cooking station to go uncleaned for any longer then the standard dinner service gets his full fury.
  • Once got so mad, he swore for a whole day, causing even Cartman to listen in stunned silence.
  • He refuses to work together with the Regular Ordinary Swedish Chef. The reason for this is when the God of Mayo was tasked to make some simple scrambled eggs, it ended with the kitchen stove and frying pan looking like it had been mauled by a bear while the walls were covered in egg yolk, butter and shell.
  • When pissed, he usually calls those around him "Donkeys". He had to bite his tongue when he said that to Donkey Kong for many reasons. First, Donkey Kong laughed at his face. Second? The ape had a barrel ready to be thrown at the House of Food.
  • Has been known to stay his temper around children and amateur Chefs, but his reputation still intimidates them. That legendary temper got put to the test the day he met up with the Cutie Mark Crusaders coming in to his Temple screaming, "CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS MASTER CHEFS! YAY!!!" What happened next is between him, the CMC and the other Equestrian Gods.
  • Was nearly beaten up by Charlotte LaBouff after she believed he was hurting Tiana's feelings, when he was actually commending Tiana for her diligence and determination. They are on better terms now (thanks in no small part to Tiana's gumbo).
  • Is not afraid to admit that he loves his mum, even curbing his swearing in front of her. Became good friends with Mr. T (who also loves his mom) because of it.

    Kirby 
Kirby, God of Extreme Omnivores (The Pink Puffball, Gritty in Pink)

    Takeshi Kaga 
Takeshi Kaga, God of Cuisine (Chairman Kaga)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A Yellow Bell Pepper.
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Cooking Duels, Alter Ego Acting, Impossibly Cool Clothes.
  • Domain: Craft, Creation, Fire, Nobility.
  • Followers: Mung Daal, Remy, Mama, Hai Yo, Hurley.
  • Allies: Aoi, Mai Tokiha, Elzam von Branstein, Alton Brown, Sanji.
  • Opposed by: Lettie Cropley.
  • Claims to have taught Aoi and Mai everything they know about cooking, but still can't get either of them to accept a dare to take a bite out of a bell pepper before slicing it up.
  • Used to be in the House of Craft, but there was so much demand of his services that he moved here to attend the demands of the Gods.
  • Word has reached his ears that he has an impostor named "William Shatner". His friends are urging him to smite the upstart, as an example to others, but he hasn't yet. The news that a different impostor claims to be his nephew merely makes him smile, for his follower Alton Brown aids that one, and he trusts Brown's judgment on worthiness.
  • Light Yagami looks at him weird due to Kaga looking similar to his own father in an alternate world.


Ambiguous Rank

    Jan Akiyama 
Jan Akiyama, God of Chinese Cookery
  • ???? Deity
  • Symbol: An Iron Wok, Chopping Knife.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Insufferable Genius, Determinator, My Kung-Fu Is Stronger Than Yours, Jerkass, Axe Crazy, The Trickster.
  • Domain: Chinese Cuisine and possibly everyone else's domain if given the chance.
  • Allies: None, No really, none.
  • Followers: Okonogi
  • Self proclaimed god of Chinese cookery, he has spent his reign in the pantheon challenging other gods to cooking contests with the aim of dethroning them in the most embarrassing way possible. Many would consider him annoying if not for his penchant for getting not only what he wants, but also being very threatening. The knives may do that.
  • He has "disposed" of many aspiring gods who wish to clamber up the ladder of the pantheon.
  • The sheer length that he will go to preparing unusual foods is enough to make Andrew Zimmern and Kirby consider him a Worthy Opponent.
  • has marked Masaharu Morimoto for his next target of deposition.


Kotaro Minami, Patron Saint of Super Tough Bodies (Kamen Rider Black [RX]), owns a small steak house here, and while it's not big… it's still garnered a lot of consumers.
