Pantheon / Gaming


What makes you a gamer isn't the systems you use, it isn't the genres you play, or even how good you are. What makes you a gamer is that you realize it's never "just a game." Because whether it's to save one special person or an entire world, if you want to be the greatest in a match, or the greatest of them all. We pour our hearts and souls into what we do, We get back up no matter how many times we're knocked down, and we keep going until we reach our goal, and that passion is what makes us who we are.
The Creed of the House of Gaming

The House of Gaming is a... colorful retro-themed house, decorated with a number of game rooms with every console in existence across the multiverse scaled for any set of hands that can hold a controller, and an arcade area with a twenty-foot-tall anachronistic pinball machine and, of course, many arcade games. Outside of the gaming center, there's a department where many deities are revising their high scores, and an achievement zone. There are also rumors of a copy of Half-Life 3 being hidden in the house somewhere.

Many deities originating from the video game industry visit this house. They challenge in many activities aside from participating in tourneys, and all aside of alignments. The recognized legends of this house are Friendly Rivals Mario and Sonic.

This house is located adjacent to the House of Technology, and gods from one house frequently visit the other.

The release of the eighth-generation consoles (PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox One, etc.) has prompted fewer returns for defective units than the previous generation. Things have improved considerably with Fix-it Felix Jr. on the job.

Michael Jackson, an avid gamer, occasionally visits the house to provide music for certain games.

There has recently been a huge addition to this house for other kinds of games, like tabletop games, trading card games, board games, and poker games! It is simply known as The Inventory, and it is notable for being one of the few places where the gods can meet with certain mortals. Yes, certain mortals; you must be invited to this place if you're mortal. In fact, there is one mortal by the name of Reginald Van Winslow, former commodore for Guybrush Threepwood, mighty pirate. He is a prominent figure in this section of the House, ensuring that everybody has a good time, and is apparently is the right-hand man (or something) of the ambiguous manager of this wing. If you ever wanted to see different characters from different series play poker together, this is where you can find them, including Sam & Max, Strong Bad, the Heavy, Ash Williams, Tycho, Brock Samson, and Claptrap.

Love Machine isn't allowed at this house due to it being a malevolent AI program that could threaten the entire house, in addition to rendering almost everything here nearly unusable.

In addition, Nobuyuki Sugou was given a restriction of him shouldn't go near towards Kirito & Asuna due to his reputation of using 300 surviving SAO victims for his Mind Control research, releasing an overpowered spell on Kirito via his privilege as a Game Master, and his attempted rape towards Asuna Yuuki. Due to this, Sugou has been stripped of his access to his in-game persona Oberon as a punishment for his crimes.

Due to a growing number of gods present, it has been split into some subhouses.

The Four Avatars of Gaming

The Gods that guard this house, keeping everyone else in line.

Mario, God of Fun and Mascots (Mr. Video Game Himself, Super Mario, formerly Jumpman, The Whimsical Italian Plumber)

    Mr. Game & Watch 
Mr. Game & Watch, Avatar of Hammerspace (Master of Two Dimensions, Mr. G&W, The secret guy)
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: Mr. Game & Watch waving his Scepter of Power. It only looks like a bell
  • Theme Song: Flat Zone and Flat Zone 2
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Hammerspace, Use of everything From Torches to Turtles to Fish to Buckets of Oil and Everything In Between, Flat Characters (literally), Secret Characters, Hyperspace Mallets
  • Domains: Darkness (he is monochrome, after all), the 2-D realm
  • Allies: All ascended deities who were born in 2-D gaming, most famously Mario, Link, and Samus, 9-volt and 18-volt, Cranky Kong
  • Enemies: Tabuu
  • Rival: King Tezro of Dotnia
  • Mr. Game & Watch spends much of his time trying to catch up to Tabuu and get his revenge for Tabuu making him the worst boss ever. Also is at odds with the King of Dotnia for being able to move in one more dimension.
  • Likes to show off his pandimensional Mismatched Sock Collection, made up of every sock in all of time and space that has ever been lost in the wash. Most are either indifferent or confused.
  • Whatever you do, do NOT mess with this guy. Besides being able to wield all Hyperspace Mallets and control all robotic implements that are too big to fit into a robot's body, he also has many, many, favors from Mario, Link, Sonic, Pit, all who gained their greatness in Nintendo, Deadpool, (G&W taught Deadpool a number of fourth wall weaknesses), and Solid Snake. You have been warned. If you don't want in over your head, and just want to see Spongebob vs. Deadpool, you can ask him.
  • It's possible that if he really wanted to, Game & Watch could cash in all his favors, battle Batman for the title of God of Preparations, and win, proving himself one of the most powerful beings under the Main House.
  • Mr. Game & Watch is looked up to by the CPU Candidates because they also represent handheld gaming.
  • In a mutual respecting relationship, 9-volt and 18-volt are both fanboys of him, and he in return absolutely adores the idea of them using his games along with other older deities for his microgames. It's possible that the three of them may of been the reason Pit may of gotten a third adventure, as well as his inclusion in the third smash game. Unlikely, but it's entirely possible they brought awareness to Nintendo's older games.
  • For the record, it's spelled Game & Watch. Not Game and Watch. Game & Watch.

    Pac Man 
Pac-Man, God of Gluttony, Champion of the Arcade (Yellow Fella, Most Recognized Gaming Icon In History, Zac, The Yellow Bane of Ghosts, Puck Man)
  • Greater God (Borders on Overdeity, as he can freely traverse the gaming multiverse at will and summon forth beings of other worlds with ease.)
  • Theme Song: Pac-Man (Namco Museum Vol.1), Pac-Man Park & Block Plaza
  • Symbol: Cherries, strawberries, oranges, apples, pretzels. Alternatively, "a pizza with a missing piece" (basically the 8-bit Pac-Man).
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Big Eaters, Granddaddies Of Video Gaming, Hollywood "Just Not Getting Him", Namco's Golden Boy, Consumer of All, The Origin of Powerups, Spectral Exterminator, Booking It, Turning the Tables, Seen Everything, No Concept Of "Quitting", Cool Fathers.
  • Domains: Fun, Arcade Games, Eating
  • Followers: Mappy, Galaga, Reiko Nagase, Dig Dug, Pitfall Harry, Centipede, dozens of Expies, The King of Town, Master Higgins, "Tom-Tom", Klonoa
  • Allies: Mario, Sonic, Mr., Game & Watch, Yoshi, King Dedede, Aila Jyrkiäinen, Fix-It-Felix Jr.
  • Rivals: Kirby, Garfield
  • Enemies: Missingno.
  • High Priest: Jr. Pac-Man/Pacster/Pac-Man II (His son).
  • Though predated by Game & Watch by a few months, Pac-Man was the world's first actual character in videogames, as the collective of Game & Watch would not spawn a representative among the nameless figures until some time later. A pioneer in an uncharted land, Pac-Man broke the barrier of objects and vehicles being the only player representative in games, giving the players at last a true ally in their quest for the highest scores.
  • After the notion of creating a "continuity" for Pac-Man was abandoned, the yellow fella found himself transcending all manners of boundaries — without any sort of ties or anchors to keep him in place, his presence and power snowballed to a degree the likes of which never seen before or since. The act of joining the Mario Kart events was something he was able to do on a whim, and finding his way into the world where the artifact Pandora was being fought for was no trying feat.
    • Thirty years under his belt, Pac-Man finally decided it was time to pass the torch to a new generation. Giving Namco consent to give him a "reincarnation" in a younger and more modern Pac-Man (who turns out to be his son, an all grown up Jr. Pac-Man), the legend respectfully allowed himself to somewhat retire, going out on top as one of the most important figures in gaming history.
    • Following his contacting by old friend and "student" Mario, Pac-Man consented to join the great gathering of Super Smash Bros. for their fourth tournament. It was only shortly thereafter that he became aware of the Pantheon's presence at all and, as he's oft to do, strolled right on in. His legacy was quickly acknowledged and, well aware of the kind of power held behind that deceptively lighthearted package, nobody was exactly keen on the notion of telling him "no".
  • Pac-Man, while respected for his significance in history, is also regarded by some of the higher-ups in the justice-oriented Houses as a secret weapon. With his ability to consume quite literally anything, it is kept in mind that this frightening hunger could be unleashed on any rogue member of the pantheon, no matter how great or terrible. Thankfully, Pac-Man's neutrality isn't absolute, and he recognizes that going on a hunger spree amongst the gods would be wrong.
  • It has been seen that Pac-Man actually appears distressed or aggravated when in the presence of Missingno., the renown glitched abomination. While the young/modern members of the House can't figure out why, Game & Watch and the House Legends are well aware that Pac-Man's almost instinctive exception to the glitch harkens back to the "Progenitor Glitch", Level 256 that halted his stride years before...
  • Made the mistake of taking Light Yagami's favorite bag of potato chips...and EATING them without adding the extra "awesome".
  • He and Kirby spend the majority of their time gorging in the dining hall, cleaning up after legendary food fights or eating everyone's leftovers, usually leaving (or in Kirby's case, spitting out) the plates to be washed. There is no waste in this House.
  • Has currently built a miniature robot that looks similar to Mokujin, meant for beating the life out of anyone who gets in his way of an all-you-can-eat buffet. Has also used the mech to hunt down an overweight man who has suffered a mid-life crisis and believes he is Mega Man.
  • Is currently the only being to consume Mystery Food X, an indescribably-horrid dish created by Yukiko Amagi and her allies Chie Satonaka and Rise Kujikawa, without any side effects. Despite which, Pac-Man would still prefer his good ol' power pellets instead.
  • Once tried to eat Pinkie Pie after eating a Power Pellet, believing her to be one of the Ghosts.
  • Participated in the First Pantheon Gourmet Race and ended up in a three-way tie alongside Goku and Kirby. He naturally has a life-time membership of the Gourmet Racer Club.
  • For some reason, PacMan seems to like hanging out on Sark's airship. Amusingly, Sark never seems to take notice of the stowaway.
  • He's weary of slingshots, thanks to the many cruel things players did to him in Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures.
  • One day, for a joke, Ed reprogramed Pac-Man's famous maze. When the ghost munching God entered for a round, he found that the maze was tilting about, forcing all the ghosts, and himself, to tilt with the maze. He has since forgiven Ed for the prank (Granted, when you have a stomach of iron, it's hard for you to throw up in a tilting maze, and 30+ years of bumping into walls have given him a resistance to head trauma), and certain Gods have requested to try out this new variant of his famous game.
  • Panic struck the House of Gaming, as the Progenitor Glitch, 256, returned upon Pac-Man's 35th Birthday, seemingly intent upon consuming he and his rivals to bring all of their series to oblivion. In a bold and heroic bid that may very well have cost him not only life but existence, Pac-Man lured the nightmare away from the House into a hall of endless mazes. Though a slew of wild ghosts mindlessly sought to take their last chance to get him once and for all, Pac-Man escaped safely — leaving the all-consuming abomination trapped within the infinite stretch forever. At least, hopefully...
  • Also in the House of Food.

     Sonic the Hedgehog 
Sonic the Hedgehog, Progenitor of Animal Mascot Platformers (The Blue Blur, Nineties Video Game Legend, Fastest Thing Alive, Knight of the Wind, Suger-hog, Big Blue, "Iblis Trigger", Sonic the Werehog, Legendary Blue Hedgehog, "King Arthur", The Hyperactive Hedgehog, Olgilvie Maurice Hedgehog, Bob Beaky, The hero of Mobius, Sonic Man)
  • Greater God
  • Theme Music: Sonic the Hedgehog Title Theme overall and for Classic Sonic, Live & Learn for Modern Sonic, It Doesn't Matter -Sonic Adventure 1 Version- and -Sonic Adventure 2 Version-, and Sonic Heroes or We Can when teamed up with Tails and Knuckles.
  • Symbol: Silhouette of His Head
  • Alignment: Neutral Good with Chaotic tendencies
  • Portfolio: Super Speed, Those Who Can't Swim But Walk Through the Water, Gameplay Roulette, Unexpected Gameplay Changes, Walking, Talking Woodland Creatures, Unnaturally Blue, Deadpan Snarker, Animals, Likes Chili Dogs, Mascot with Attitude
  • Domains: Speed, Personality, Heroism
  • Allies:
  • Friendly Rivals: Many other gods with Super Speed (though not all of them are friendly), Spongebob Squarepants
  • Enemies:
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Arthur Pendragon
  • Odd Friendship: Steve Rogers
  • Special Relations: Mario (Friendly Rival and fellow member of The Brotherhood)
  • Sonic is a speedy blue hedgehog known for thwarting any sort of plan that Dr. Eggman throws his way and the world that they live in (though the hedgehog has stopped other threats in addition to Eggman). The hedgehog has, among other things, a number of different powered-up forms (the most iconic of which is Super Sonic), plenty of familiar faces from his world, and most of all, a cool, snarky, and headstrong attitude even when things get dire.
  • He's formed a bit of a bond with Arturia due to both having taken the title of King Arthur and ruled the land of Camelot for a time. They occasionally spar in order for Sonic to keep up with his swordsmanship.
    • Ironically enough, there's a bit of friction between him and the actual Arthur Pendragon. While they do work together to stop certain threats from arising, Sonic is wary that Arthur might end up becoming evil and Arthur doesn't like how Sonic ended up being the real King Arthur amidst the fact that the hedgehog slew his version of King Arthur.
    • Due to having once wielded an annoying talking sword that constantly called him "Knave!" and Fool!", he's actually able to stand Excalibur to an extent, though he admits his sword at least stop calling him that after a while and would actually say something useful.
  • Sonic's relation with fellow platforming icon Mario has been quite interesting. Back then, the hedgehog was the primary rival for the plumber in platforming supremacy. As time went by, they've become friendlier towards each other to the point where it would be possible to consider them as Fire-Forged Friends with each other.
    • Friendly competitions between the two have been quite frequent. In a rather unofficial one, Sonic was able to defeat Mario while another one had Mario defeat Sonic, though it hasn't been mentioned that much since then (and the two tend to take their fights in the Smash tournament, of which Sonic has joined during the third iteration, nowadays). In less lethal matters, the two alongside their friends and rivals have visited the House of Sports to compete and in certain intervals, they are featured in Olympic events (some of the events in question are actual Olympic sports and others are more fantastical).
  • Aside from his Super Sonic form, some of Sonic's powered-up forms include Werehog Sonic (which trades Speed for Power and is only usable at night), Darkspine Sonic (which is the result of Sonic getting unique rings that are representative of negative emotions), and Excalibur Sonic (as previously mentioned, it comes into play should Sonic get his hands on that talking sword). That said, Super Sonic is probably the most convenient super form for the hedgehog, though it (and his other powered-up forms) are only temporary and really only used if things get very serious.
  • Considered one of the fastest Gods in all the Pantheon. Whether he's faster than Barry Allen, Rainbow Dash, or some other speedster is a subject of heated debate. These speedsters are more than willing to engage in a race whenever the time comes for it.
  • To put it bluntly, it is quite difficult to talk about him and his contributions without getting involved into arguments as to how well these contributions have turned out. Sometimes the arguments include how he looks (and keep in mind that the modern and classic looks have met each other). Even amidst these heated debates and turmoil over some of them, Sonic has been able to carry on.
  • Sonic is great friends with Crash Bandicoot, another animal platformer hero with an attitude who has gone up against a Mad Scientist arch-nemesis a number of times.
  • Is worried about the Godmodder's position in the Pantheon due to the fact that the problems the godmodder caused before he ascended resulted in, among other things, Sonic being Glitched out of reality for several months along with Metal Sonic.
  • Gets along well with Neptune, but he thinks of her as his strangest friend.
  • Learned of Metal Sonic's alliance with Rainbow Dash's robotic Evil Counterpart, The R-Dash 5000, and has strengthen his own alliance with RD in case they need to take them down...and they, much like their counterparts, are purposely ignoring any and all implications of shipping from the masses.
  • Became friends with Mordecai and Rigby when he found them playing an arcade cabinet that featured one of his outings. He learned that they owned a Sega Master System, and his voice reminded them of Thomas.
  • Gives Segata Sanshiro the utmost respect, as he knows that it was because of him that their company of Sega was able to hold out for so long.
    • As far as Sonic and Sega are concerned, the Hedgehog has been able to secure a large number of friends (in addition to his already-existing entourage) from that organization, both classic and modern. The more colorful characters tend to hang out with him more often than the more serious ones (though it's due to the strictly professional relations regarding them that Sonic decided to let them handle their own matters whatever they are). Then again, he did invite Gillius Thunderhead to play tennis and go racing successfully.
  • Some people say that when Steve Urkel talks, occasionally he sounds like Sonic. It is largely assumed to be just a coincidence.
    • There have been other instances where people have claimed to hear Sonic sounding like Steve Rogers. The two somehow met each other by chance and the two blue heroes hold a good amount of respect of each other for preventing any troubles that befall their respective worlds.
  • Has been summoned along with an initial set of three other fellow Smasher gods by a certain teenage Mii who happened to be a follower of his to join her in MST and a trial of snark. He always seems to look forward to when he will be summoned next, and to have made a friend with a mortal Pokémon trainer from Kalos due to similarities.
  • Sash Lilac was someone whom Sonic was intrigued with. After hearing about her adventures and of how similar she is to him, he offered her a position in the Pantheon, which she eagerly accepted.
    • Upon hearing about Lord Brevon and what he has done, Sonic, along with Lilac and all their respective friends have formed an alliance to ensure that Brevon is stopped once and for all. Sonic was all for it, seeing that the warlord is much worse than the doctor, and even heard that Eggman is opposing him as well.
  • It hasn't been brought up often, but some think that Sonic's speed comes from his sneakers. There was one instance where Eggman slowed Sonic down by giving him a pair of heavy boots, but most have just considered it to be a weird point in Sonic and Eggman's ongoing rivalry, even taking into account the question of Sonic's source of speed.
    • There has also been a few wondering as to why Sonic would need a car or a hoverboard for certain moments when he could have just run to get somewhere. The hedgehog has pointed out that these aforementioned vehicles are really only used in certain competitions that he takes part in (then again, he did run in certain races before).
  • Sonic has made a few visits to the House of Food to eat chili dogs. Strangely enough, he also has a popcorn machine installed at that house, which has led some to ask if Sonic has popcorn as a secondary favorite food in addition to the chili dogs.
  • Ace's tale of his adventure and path to death by sacrificing himself for Luffy's sake touched about everyone with a soul in the Pantheon. However, Sonic was touched in a way that made him feel like a jerk, seeing how he realized that he more or less neglected and blamed Tails multiple times previously. He quickly went over to try and make amends, though Tails insisted that there was no harm done and that he was happy that Sonic just cares for him. Since than, the two adopted brothers joined the other two in their quest to help preserve and protect the peace of the other brothers in their group.
    • Has accepted Eggman's invitation to protect him, not just because he's the only one allowed to defeat Sonic, but he's just that compicated of a guy. Still, considering Eggman's betrayal tendencies, eyes have been on him.
      • And Eggman's out. You can't exactly protect someone if you capture them, torture them, and take over the world.
  • Sonic has a strong dislike of former Turbografx-16 mascot Johnny Turbo. At first he just found the out of touch mascot to be an insufferable fool due to his blind hatred of the entire Sega pantheon, his constant slandering of the company and his unwillingness to move on from 90's culture, but it escalated into something far worse when Turbo delivered an unprovoked running uppercut to former Sega mascot Alex Kidd for selling a Sega CD instead of a Turboduo at his game shop. When he discovered this act, Sonic tracked down Johnny and handed him his ass on a silver platter. He later served as a key witness in a trial against him, which resulted in Sonic (and the rest of Segas faculty) being granted a 160 feet restraining order against him.
    • Despite this incident, he is on friendly terms with Johnny's contemporaries and former Turbografx-16 stars Bonk and Bomberman.
  • Sonic's the name, speed's my game!
