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

The Paragon Trio of Hope
Cosmos, Goddess of Good, Patron Saint of Those who Aspire to be Benevolent, and Leader of the Grand United Alliance of Good
(Goddess of Harmony)
- Theme Song: Keeping the Peace
- Overdeity of Good
- Symbol: Ten uniquely-shaped Crystals, one for each of her original champions. Alternatively, her counterpart to the Stigma of Chaos, which is White and Feathery as opposed to Black and Spiky.
- Alignment: Lawful Good
- Portfolio: Preservation of the Balance Between Order and Chaos, Saintliness, Motherliness, Wisdom, Long-Term Planning, Self-Sacrifice For The Greater Good.
- Domain: Balance, Destiny, Good, Law, Hope, Protection.
- Followers: Onion Knight, Zidane Tribal, Professor Shantotto, Lord Shojo, the Man In The Moon, Palutena, and many others.
- Allies: Cloud Strife, Terra Branford, Zordon, the majority of the Good-aligned deities.
- Enemies: Melkor, Chaos, the Great Will.
- Herald: Blizzard.
- Despite being technically less powerful than Iluvatar, his duties as one of the Holy Trinity keeps him from being active all the time in the Grand United Alliance of Good. Thus, Cosmos rose through the ranks to be named leader of the Alliance until further notice. Many of the chaotic members grumbled about the appointment, but as Cosmos is also fully willing to get down and dirty in the war, most eventually came around to the leadership.
- Frequents the House of Heroes quite often to help plan with the generals, but will just as soon visit the other houses in order to check on good recruits from the other houses.
- Is taking part in a grand alliance of the most brilliant minds in the pantheon against the Mad God of Order, the Great Will. She profoundly detests his obsessive desire for all-encompassing order at the cost of every form of freedom, uncaring of the suffering some may endure for many to be preserved. However, she has paid close heed to the rumors stating the Tyrant God was once a kind, loving deity, and also devotes significant resources in finding exactly what, if anything, twisted him into the demented Control Freak he is today.
Clark Kent, God of Superheroes
(Superman, Kal-El, The Man of Tomorrow, The Last Son of Krypton, The Man of Steel, The Big Blue Boyscout, Earth's Adopted Son)
- Theme Song: His TAS theme; alternatively, John Williams' theme or Hans Zimmerman's take.
- Greater God (Overdeity if near a blue star)
- Symbol: A Shield with an "S" on it.
- Alignment: Lawful Good
- Portfolios: Inexplicably Good Disguises, Lots and Lots of Powers, Flying Catches, Specific Weaknesses, Getting Away With Being So Overpowered, Being Cool While Almost Always Winning, Caped Heroes, Paragons, Ideal Heroes.
- Domains: Truth, Justice, The American Way (formerly).
- The DC Universe: Supergirl, Power Girl, Batgirl, Batman, The Question, Nightwing, Robin, Wonder Woman, The Flash (Barry Allen), Ambush Bug, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Aquaman, Firestorm, Steel, Shazam, Green Arrow, Hawkgirl, Zatanna, Cyborg, Raven.

- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork With: Lobo.
- Enemies: Lex Luthor, Red Skull, Harley Quinn, The Joker, Bane, Deathstroke, His own Regime self, YHVH.
- Superman's adventures have been so varied and numerous that listing all of his accomplishments, allies, and his influences on the rest of the pantheon could keep us here a while. Just watch for him when he's in one of his moods.
- As their philosophies, color schemes, and do-gooder attitudes are very compatible, Superman meets regularly with Optimus Prime and Captain America, along with a few others. Rumors that they make secret plans to thwart Evil are entirely unfounded. Everyone knows that they get together to play Bridge. Whatever that is. Surely the most powerful of superheroes, the robotic Messiah, and the head of the House of Justice can get together without making plans, right?
- Some might mock him for being old fashioned, but his closest allies will be quick to remind him that, "I believe in you."
- Most of the villains hate his guts, as his Super Speed, Super Strength, and other parts of his Superpower Lottery makes him a very persistent foe that is NOT easily gotten rid of (without a healthy dose of kryptonite of course).
- Has fought Goku many, many times with no certain conclusion, except for that one time when they were nowhere near a yellow sun.
- Has the distinction of being in one of the greatest friendly fights in Pantheon history: Him VS Son Goku. After a long and grueling battle that took every house of the pantheon to clean up, Superman was declared victorious.
- In an alternate universe, he is a tyrant. if he had just one bad day. But to Superman, this still doesn't affect his reputation. Personally, however, the vision kinda shook his conviction, realizing that he could end up the same as his tyrannical version. He's asked not just close friends like Batman, but also the likes of Captain America to either come with a backup plan or work together to keep the morale, to never let that happen, continuing to live in what he'd call "The World of Cardboard".
- That tyrannical version of himself eventually became motive for him to grab a shard of X-Kryptonite and take part in "The Pantheonic Rebellion".
- He came back to the screen in a 2013's Man of Steel, under the direction of Watchmen director Zack Snyder. While the film has received a mixed reception from critics, it was a financial success and is getting a sequel that will team him up with The Dark Knight himself.
Commander Shepard, Deity of Gathering Unusual Parties
- Theme Song: 'Commander Shepard' by Miracle of Sound.
- Greater Deity
- Symbol: An N7 logo.
- Weapon of Choice: SMG, Handgun, Sniper Rifle, Assault Rifle, Shotgun, Biotics, Omni-Blade... pick any.
- Alignment: Paragon/Renegade/Somewhere In Between
- Portfolio: Recruiting Rag Tag Teams Of Misfits, Fighting Dark Reality-Warping Aliens That Possess Apparently Limitless Power, Saying "Wrex" to Wrex, Going to Their Favorite store on the Citadel, Punching Reporters After Having Had Enough Snide Insinuations/Disingenuous Assertions/Tabloid Journalism, Being Incredibly Hard to Kill, Unbreakable Determination, Shell-Shocked Veteran, One (Wo)Man Army, Extremely Charismatic, Nearly Unmatched Skill and Ability in Anything S/He Pursues, Overshadowing Those Under His/Her Command, Ultimate Badass, Ultimate Hero
- His/Her group: Garrus Vakarian, Jack, Legion, Liara T'Soni, Miranda Lawson, Mordin Solus, Tali Zorah vas Neema, Urdnot Wrex, Javik
- Paragon mode: Superman, Spiderman, Captain America Yuu Narukami (and by extension, the rest of the Investigation Team.), Nanoha Takamachi, Naruto Uzumaki, Kamina and Simon, Touma Kamijou, chaos, KOS-MOS
- Renegade Mode: Martin Walker, Batman, Kiritsugu Emiya, Guts, Raiden
- Both Modes, not from his group: The Bhaalspawn
- Followers: Many a Fire Emblem Lord, the Tenkai Stars of the Suikoden series, any non-ascended Normandy crewmembers
- Opposed By: Saren Arterius, The Illusive Man, Ragyo Kiryuin, Harbinger and the entire Reaper collective.
- Shepard is a mysterious one. Gender, race, age, background, alignment: no data available. Because of this, Shepard is sometimes not entirely trusted by other Heroes (and don't start on the Citadel Council). However, regardless of their methods, Shepard is the galaxy's best hope against the Reapers.
- Unlike most gods, Commander Shepard can be killed. However, all it does is piss him/her off.
- Under consideration for taking over the Determinator portfolio after taking a direct hit from Harbinger's Wave Motion Gun and still not dying. The only thing that has been barring him/her is the infamous conclusion (or lack of one) of his journey that many still have mixed feelings of even to this day.
- Shepard possesses the divine gift of releasing anyone from any brainwashing with only the power of words. Depending on the severity of the brainwashing, however, this may result in self-inflicted death.
- Shepard can be seen visiting and giving consolations on Martin Walker. They may have existed in two different worlds with jarring difference in where idealism and cynicism are located, but Shepard always ensured that Walker did the right thing about his epiphany, and he/she would also be equally jarred if thrown in a world where he/she end up killing many fellow humans just doing their best to survive the harsh situation. "It's like when the Reapers invade the Earth. Except replace the Reapers with fellow humans who's just trying to survive, even through harsh methods. No aliens to help or co-invade... nothing. Captain Walker has my utmost respect."
- S/he is suspected of suffering from severe post-traumatic stress disorder and possibly being a bit of Death Seeker due to having to make many a Sadistic Choice and The Chains of Commanding. Others in the Pantheon are keeping an eye on him/her to make sure it stays in check.
- Is having his/her members create a group called the Paragon club, consisting of Him/Herself, Superman, Spiderman, Captain America, Yuu Narukami, Naruto Uzumaki, Nanoha Takamachi, Kamina, and Simon. Cyclops, however, turns it down.
- Antagonizing him/her (or his/her crew) is never wise, no matter how compassionate and kind s/he may be acting.
- Likes to swap stories with chaos on occasion about their respective adventures fighting against omnicidal monstrosities in outer space. Shepard has also shown interest in recruiting KOS-MOS to be part of the crew of the Normandy, citing how handy the X-Buster turned out when facing off against a Gnosis Cathedral Ship. With something like that, a Reaper or two would be no problem.
- Was rather pleased to see Javik ascend into the House of Narratives, but had to advise him not to narrate what happened during their last shore leave, particularly that time at the sushi place. (As Shepard would put it: "Not a word.")
- There is an ongoing rumor in the Pantheon that s/he's related to someone with a very similar name.
- Shepard's utter refusal to stay dead and near flawless success rate has made him/her both highly respected and highly feared among the Villains, particularly their more mortal followers.
- As he was preceded by the legendary Bhaalspawn, when said spawn entered the Pantheon, it didn't matter if Shepard was in Paragon or Renegade mode, he greeted him and paid his respects (because if Shepard has Renegade mode? Bhaalspawn has EVIL mode).
- No matter what scars you bear, whatever uniform you wear, you can fight like a krogan, run like a leopard, but you'll never be better than Commander Shepard.
Mr. Satan, God of Fake Ultimate Heroes
(Hercule, Hercule Satan, Mark, The World Champion)
- Theme Song: Hercule’s Orchestra
- Alignment: Lawful Good
- Symbol: His Gold Belt and White Cape
- Portfolio: Action Survivor, Arbitrary Skepticism, Awesome McCoolname, Badass Mustache, Becoming the Mask, Boisterous Bruiser, Born in the Wrong Century, Butt Monkey, The Chew Toy, Cowardly Lion, Good Parent, Doting Parent, FAKE. ULTIMATE. HERO, Friend to All Children, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Joke Character, Large Ham, Overprotective Dad, Popularity Power, Porn Stache, The So-Called Coward, Wouldn't Hurt a Child
- Domains: Courage, Luck, Determination, Loyalty, Strength, Martial Arts, Protection
- Followers: Don Kanonji, Sena Kobayakawa, Johnny Cage, Captain Qwark
- Allies: Majin Buu (or rather, Fat Buu), Dan Hibiki, Krillin, Hulk Hogan, Asura, Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, Edward Newgate, Vegeta, Captain Gordon, Zapp Brannigan, Black Star, Axel
- 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.
- After finding similarities in their jobs and personalities, Mr. Satan and Axel have become friends.
