Pantheon: Heroes
Here lies the House of Heroes, who fight against destruction. These God's goals are peace and harmony, to restore order. Beware that some are less than noble in pursuit of this goal. This house was founded when several of the heroes such as Superman and Spider-Man decided they wanted a place to rest instead of the perpetual war in the house of heroes and villains. While many of the elder gods were uneasy at the thought of another hero/villain house split after the first experiment, the case eventually went all the way to the court of the gods, where a very tired and irritated Johnson ordered the house split up because, "All that noise makes sleeping very difficult for the rest of us! I tolerate the house of beasts out of necessity, but split the others up for now. Let them scheme in their own houses." Jean Luc-Picard facepalmed at this utterly arbitrary decision, but as Jack McCoy was leading the case, tired of having the lawless look over his notes, the decision passed with surprisingly little argument. The only dissenter was Harvey Dent, but after flipping a coin, he ultimately decided for it too, though it did create the awkward situation of him needing to drag himself between houses depending on his coin flip on who he was going to visit on off time.

Most of the resident Heroes are just glad to finally rest without needing to take watches to prevent their throats from being slit by the Villains. However, their only exception is a form of Enemy Mine when it comes to beating the Disgraces.

  • Allies: Majin Buu, Dan Hibiki, Krillin, Hulk Hogan, Asura, Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, Edward Newgate, Vegeta, Captain Gordon, Zapp Brannigan, Black Star
  • Rivals: Anyone who presents a threat to his title as World Martial Arts Champion
  • Enemies: Anyone who presents a threat to his fans, family and friends or status, Cell
  • He shows moments of great courage when his family and friends are threatened by evil. Mr. Satan's true colors are foreshadowed when he risks his life to get Android 16's head near Gohan, which leads to Gohan's transformation to Super Saiyan 2. In the Majin Buu Saga, Mr. Satan is revealed to be a fundamentally good man as opposed to the arrogant showboat persona he exhibits, and his bravery and kindness towards the good Majin Buu play a major role in Kid Buu's defeat at the end of the Kid Buu Saga. Prominently, he has saved the lives of his pet dog Bee, Vegeta, and even Majin Buu.
  • Although he may not have the courage of a hero, but he certainly has the heart of one. His willingness to do good in spite of his cowardice and incompetence is enough to earn Piccolo's respect and approval as the "True Champion of the World." The few times the bad guys he's fighting are normal (but dangerously armed) criminals instead of superhuman monsters, he effortlessly beats them down.
    • And that's how he became the champion of the world while Goku and the rest of the Z-warriors were out.
  • Mr. Satan's civilian name is "Mark." In kana, that would be maaku, which is an anagram of akuma, which is, you guessed it, is Japanese for "devil."
  • In a series where death itself is treated as an inconvenience, Mr. Satan stands out as having Plot Armor so thick he could probably survive getting hit by a nuke through some improbable circumstance. You would think that getting fly-swatted by Cell and attempting to murder Buu via video games would get him killed. And you would be wrong. Mr Satan, Fortuneteller Baba, and East Supreme Kai are the only main characters in the entire series to never die, which is quite an achievement in this series.
  • At first he only pretended to be Majin Buu's friend so he can get close enough to kill him. It wasn't until Fat Buu's Heel-Face Turn that he became friends with him for real.
  • He may be a greedy, lying skirt chasing coward, but he is still a fundamentally decent, sensitive and kind-hearted human being who wants to make the world a better place.
  • He's NOT fearless; but his willingness to stand up and do something when it matters in spite of being a weakling makes him the bravest of all the Z-Warriors.
  • Under normal circumstances, he would be an incredible fighter, and legitimately won the World Martial Arts Tournament multiple times. Unfortunately for him, these are not normal circumstances.
  • In the manga during the Buu Saga he looks...odd. Like his head is too big for his body, which was probably intentionally designed that way, considering the sort of person he is.
  • With a power level rivalling Master Roshi, he'd have been quite a force in the old days. Unfortunately, by the time his career takes off, he's long since been Overshadowed by Awesome.
  • He is frequently credited as stronger than any other professional fighter, although this usually does not bother any of the main characters despite their world-saving ventures being unrecognized. However, a few characters are not above blackmailing him about the secret. Of course, he is the strongest normal human who doesn't know how to use ki when he first appears, and the good guys in fact would rather stay out of the spot-light, so it suits them just fine. When push comes to shove however, Mr. Satan is actually a rather decent and kind-hearted man who genuinely cares about people and wants to help them. He at least has the Heart of a Hero, if nothing else.
  • At the age of 57, Mr. Satan retired from the world of martial arts. His official reason for retiring is to give the next generation a chance. However, the truth is that it became impossible for him to continue rigging the tournament without his partner Majin Buu.
  • Mr. Satan ends up being very active as a movie star. Appearing in all sorts of films, he played the role of various types of characters in everything from romance films to action flicks.
    • The film "Satan Legend" starring Mr. Satan was released, which, while it did not do well at the box office, it nevertheless, gained a cult-like popularity among different parts of the world for the special effects which were used to emulate Goku and his friends' techniques in order to fight against the movie's antagonists.
  • Mr. Satan is an incredibly sensitive soul who is able to shed tears for a demon who wiped out the human race, and on top of that has faith that Buu can become a better person.
  • When Trunks wins the junior tournament and gets an exhibition match against Mr. Satan, Mr. Satan gives him a free shot. He purposely let himself get punched clear out of the ring, as he intended to throw the fight from the start and even tells his assistant that he wouldn't fight a child.
    • Along with not hurting Kid Trunks in their battle, he also comforts some of the losing children of the kids tournament when they start to get upset.
    • Taken into consideration how well he treats his family and children in general, despite of how arrogant and chauvinistic he may be, Mr Satan is very well received and welcomed by every good God in the Pantheon house for Relatives and Family, specifically Piccolo and Edward Newgate.
    • Even Asura is on good terms with him, but is annoyed with the fact that Mr Satan declines every invitation Asura gives him for a friendly battle, after hearing how strong he supposedly is.
  • Even without powers like Goku and his friends, he's helped save the universe twice. Granted the first was by convincing the Big Bad that killing was wrong and the second was by helping collect the energy for the spirit bomb, but this still counts as neither would've happened without him.
