    The Crow 
The Crow, Goddess of Karmic Deaths (Crowhorn, Crowbey)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_vividred_operation_05_03.jpg
  • Greater Goddess Overdeity if powered up with Empowering Arrows and Manifestation Energy
  • Alignment: Believes itself to be Above Good and Evil, is actually Chaotic Evil
  • Symbol: 12 crow's feathers arranged into a circle
  • Portfolio: Karmic Death, Non Indicative Name, Kick the Dog, Big Bad, Eldritch Abomination, Devour the Dragon, Apocalypse How, Drunk on the Dark Side, Evil Is Hammy, Turned Against Their Masters, Walking Spoiler, Red Eyes, Take Warning, Creepy Crows, No Name Given
  • Domains: Death, Irony, Evil, Destruction
  • Allies: The GUAD, Lord Shen, The Grand Duke of Owls, Clockwerk, Mephiles the Dark, Gul'dan.
  • Enemies: The Vivid Team, Gertrud Barkhorn, EVE, Crimson Viper, Mogo, The House of Birds, Nazuna Inuwaka, Hayate Yagami, Lois Lane, Daphne Blake, Carmelita Fox, Billy Hatcher
  • Opposes: The Incubators
  • Following The Crow's defeat at the hands of the Vivid Team and Rei Kuroki, The Crow somehow managed to enter the Pantheon disguised as a regular Crow.
    • Many deities enjoy humiliating The Crow because they find it hilariously ironic that she was killed by not only her pawn but also, the girl who gave her back her humanity.
  • When it was caught wind that The Crow had ascended, The Vivid Team had a simultaneous heart attack and sigh of relief because they feared that she would try to destroy the Pantheon, but they relaxed when they realized there were no sources of Manifestation Energy in the Pantheon and The Crow found herself unable to give Empowering Arrows to anyone else after her last pawn.
  • Many deities have noted some similarities between The Crow and Kyubey as they both empower young girls under the guise of giving something they want while not giving two shits about their suffering. However, while Kyubey does give the Puella Magi what they (think they) want and ultimately has a noble goal (however screwed up the way he'll pursue it) to save the universe, the Crow flat out lies to her pawns and wishes to destroy it.
  • While The Crow is almost universally reviled among the Pantheon, The Crow has allied herself with the GUAD so they can find a way to siphon Manifestation Energy from the mortal world so she can use it by itself to destroy the universe.
  • Despite there being many deities who hate The Crow, she gets a lot more hatred from Gertrud Barkhorn, EVE, Crimson Viper, Lois Lane, Daphne Blake, and Carmelita Fox as they hate how they share certain qualities with an Omnicidal Maniac.
  • The Crow found herself getting along well with the other evil birds of the pantheon such as Lord Shen, Clockwerk and the Grand Duke of Owls. Even more so with Clockwerk as he's not actually a bird either.
  • There are no deities who trust The Crow because she always lies about giving others what they want in exchange for helping her but one deity who shares The Crow's mindset is Mephiles the Dark because he also lied to someone about giving them something in exchange for them doing something for him.
  • Despite them using crows as a motif, The Crow is not allies with Hayate Yagami, Eric Draven or Nazuna Inuwaka as all of them would much rather keep the pantheon safe from The Crow, rather than allow her destroy it.

Intermediate Gods

    Grommash Hellscream 
Grommash Hellscream, God of Redeeming Death (Grom Hellscream, Savior of the Orcs, Warchief of the Iron Horde)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ScreamingWarrior.jpg
  • Theme Song: "Grommash Hellscream".
  • Intermediate God.
  • Symbol: The symbol of the Warsong clan.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: AAAARRRGGHHH!!!, The Gorehowl Axe, Dying so Awesomely it Redeems Him and His Race, 'Thin' Orcs, Relishing in Battle, Doing Leeroy Jenkins Before The Trope Namer, Quick Axe Fighters, Craziness, Ex-Devil Dealers.
  • Domains: Life and Death, War, Combat.
  • Allies: Thrall, Baine Bloodhoof, Vol'Jin, Axe, Darth Vader, Leeroy Jenkins, Raoh.
  • Complicated Relations: Garrosh Hellscream
  • Rivals: Malfurion Stormrage, Jaina Proudmoore.
  • Enemies: The whole Demon house, Gul'dan.
  • Always being the proud leader of the Warsong clan, Grom was once a more or less in-line of the typical Savage Orc until Thrall made him change his mind. But old habits die hard and got him corrupted, but once freed, Grom proceeds to reclaim the destiny of the Orcs by slaying the corrupter, Mannoroth. The curse of the orcs lifted, Grom has saved them, his savagery redeemed and thus he would be remembered as the savior of the Orcs. Such an epic tale that eventually the Pantheon handed him this throne.
    • It was also known that both Raoh and Darth Vader approved this, as Raoh considered his death very awesome nearly to the point of matching his 'Defiant Stance To Heaven', and Darth Vader saying that how he redeems himself and the Orcs remind him on how Vader redeemed himself to Luke.
  • The first thing Grom did after entering the Pantheon is to visit his friend Thrall, and come to check on the current Horde. He seems... indifferent and fine towards the new leaders, such as Baine, Vol'Jin and Lor'themar. Deep down, however, Grom has respected Thrall so much that he doesn't care if the 'official' Warchief is Vol'Jin. For him, it's always Thrall.
    • However, he has mixed feelings towards his son Garrosh. On one hand, he's proud that he displays the ferocity befitting of a Hellscream. On one hand, he's kind of disappointed that he ran his legacy to the ground. But of all things, Grom still cares for his son very much, and regardless of what everyone said, he considered Garrosh's act of saving him in the alternate verse where he created the Iron Horde a proof of being the son of Hellscream.
  • Reactions over the 'alliance' remain mixed, however. Malfurion still held the grudge over his slaying of Cenarius, though he is aware that to become this 'savior', Cenarius had to die (and Cenarius and the elves with him apparently attacked the orcs first). Jaina occasionally slipped off on how his son destroyed her home and her love for peace in the future, something that scared her to death. Grom's not expected to show any sympathy, but he's aware of those sentiments.
  • He is a strong contender to one day jump into the battlefield of Blizzard deities one day. The question is when. He's fine with his son coming in first.
  • Surprisingly for an orc, Grom considers himself thin, not muscular. Say that in front of everyone else, and it'll leave them puzzled, because for their standards, Grom is packed.
  • He's trying to find a house for breath mints. While screaming is excellent for intimidating the enemy, it's havoc on the throat.
  • Amongst the Defenders of the Ancients, he gets along very well with Axe, who was said to have learned a thing or two from Grom. Grom is impressed with his axe-play, but gets embarrassed when Axe mentions that he learned from his demonic self.
    • On the other hand, he had a weird feeling towards Azwraith, because he seemed to formerly use a part of his style, only with a spear.
  • Believe it or not, Grom have been 'Leeroy'-ing before Leeroy Jenkins ever came to existence. Thrall could attest when that time he wanted to travel through Stonetalon Peak. When Grom met Leeroy in person, he was actually amused and now considers him one of the few "pinkskins" he can tolerate.
  • He has a distaste to the whole house of Demons, mainly because everyone there reminds him of Mannoroth: Corruptive and abusive.
  • "I can wait no longer!"

    Ignitus 
Ignitus, God of Ironic Deaths
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ignitus.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The fire element symbol
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence, Badass Grandpa, Breath Weapon, Death by Irony, Heroic Sacrifice, Old Master, Playing with Fire, Proof of the Mentor Occupational Hazard, Seer
  • Domains: Death, Dragons, Fire, Seers
  • Heralds: Terrador, Volteer, and Cyril
  • Allies: Spyro (possibly his son), non-evil dragon deities (especially the good), the League of Extreme Fatherhood, Asgore Dreemurr, Toriel, Mufasa, Obi-Wan, the Panda King
  • Enemies: Malefor, Deathwing, Ragnaros, Alduin, Lord Shen
  • Opposes: The Child Abuse Supporters, any abusive parent or parental figure
  • Pities: Flowey, Meg
  • The deities of the House of Life and Death highly considered Ignitus for ascension when he suffered a particularly ironic death. He was the Fire Guardian, and he ended up dying in a fire saving Spyro and Cynder. Ignitus is a dragon and a fire elemental who died in a fire. Originally after his death, Ignitus was chosen to be the new Chronicler. As such, the deities were uncertain if he would accept his potential position in the Pantheon or not. All it took for him to accept, though, was the realization that Spyro had also ascended.
  • Ignitus brought the other three Guardians, Terrador, Volteer, and Cyril with him as his Heralds. It would seem that even his death couldn't separate the four of them. Together, they form a Four-Element Ensemble of fire (Ignitus), earth (Terrador), electricity (Volteer), and ice (Cyril). It's also worth noting that many deities in the Pantheon suspect that Volteer and Cyril might be a couple, mostly because they argue like an old married couple. Nepeta reportedly has the two of them in a matespritship on her shipping wall.
  • Ignitus and Spyro go back a long way. In his Legend incarnation, Ignitus had to let him go when he was just an egg to keep him from being killed during the raid on the Temple. Eventually they reunited and Ignitus served as his father figure and mentor up until his death. Spyro also considers the other three guardians to be like uncles. Many believe that Ignitus may actually be Spyro's biological father, though. Despite the fact that this can't be proven for certain, there's no denying that the bond is still there.
  • Ignitus is pretty well-liked among the House of Family, aside from the Child Abuse Supporters, probably because of the great lengths he was willing to go to for Spyro and Cynder's benefit. This is what ultimately led to his death by heroic sacrifice, after all. This is how he met Mufasa, Toriel, and Asgore by extension. He thinks it's a real shame what happened to Asgore and Toriel's son, and wishes the two of them could get along better. Sometimes he serves as mediator for them. The League of Extreme Fatherhood is fond of Ignitus for the same reasons, and the feeling is definitely mutual. He is also fairly well-aquainted with non-evil dragon deities of the Pantheon, especially the good dragons.
  • Ignitus is particularly impressed by the Panda King and his willingness to do anything to save his daughter, as well as his renouncement of evil.
  • Ignitus and Obi-Wan can often be seen exchanging stories from their time as mentors. Obi-Wan has offered Ignitus many condolences for what happened to him.
  • Ignitus has always found it to be extremely unfair how Meg was banished to The Fallen for something completely beyond her control, namely the abuse she suffers from her father, Peter Griffin. He has always maintained that, should Peter ever ascend, he would most certainly give him a piece of his mind.
  • Ragnaros loves to mock Ignitus for the circumstances behind his death. He thinks it's completely pathetic that a dragon such as himself perished the way he did. Many other deities can only shake their heads at this. Maybe someday he'll learn that bullying a dragon isn't such a good idea?
  • Ignitus has joined many other deities in the opposition of Deathwing. Having the word "destroyer" in his name certainly wasn't helpful in getting on his good side.
  • Ignitus and Lord Shen are not exactly on good terms either. Not only does Ignitus detest him for what he's done in the past, but something else really unsettles the both of them. They're not really sure what it is, though.
  • Ignitus can't help but look on at Flowey with sadness and pity. He is well-aware that the flower is actually Asgore and Toriel's lost son, Asriel. It really hurts to see how twisted and warped he has become, and Ignitus really hopes that the situation can be remedied someday.

Lesser Gods

    Benkei 
Saito no Musashibo Benkei, God of Standing While Dying (Benkei the Monk, Oniwakanote , Oniwakamaru, The Warrior Monk, The Loyal, Ferocious Monk)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1da3502469af07dfb9c544771bec6cb5.jpg

    Murky 
Murky, God of Meaningless Deaths (Baby Murloc, Grunty)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/murky.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A piranha he is always carrying. (And uses as a weapon)
  • Theme Song: Roarcraft. I am Murloc when he gets Serious.
  • Alingment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Originally a pet turned full fledged badass in The Nexus, Cute little Critter but very dangerous, Not even death slows him down, Difficult, but Awesome, Wants revenge against the people who slaughtered his village, Shamu Fu, Small, Annoying Creature, his egg is where he revives faster, Murloc, Mrgglglbrlg!
  • Domains: Deaths, Revenge, Murlocs.
  • Heralds: Many Murlocs form his Homeland
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Arthas Menethil, Diablo, Leoric, Anub'arak, Kunkka, Dhuum
  • Neutral Counterpart to: The Incubators
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Bruce the Shark, Rena Ryuugu, Sapphire Rhodonite
  • Some reports of a mysterious Egg found in the house of Aquatic Life led to that egg being investigated by The SCP Foundation. Days later, the Egg went missing and Little Creature by the name of Murky was found roaming the Pantheon.
  • Don't let his appearance fool you, Murky is very capable on holding his own against stronger opponents like Diablo or Arthas. However, he has been noted to die in battle...a lot, and he still returned for more minutes later. Tough no one can explain Murky's abilities he has been rewarded with a position in the Pantheon.
    • It has been once noticed that Bruce the shark once tried to eat him when he saw Murky. Unfortunately, Bruce learned the hard way to not mess with this particular baby Murloc, because since then, Murky has been using the Shark as a weapon.
  • He usually (When he is not motivated by revenge) is a pretty laid-back and nonchalant Murloc but he is very annoyed with Rena Ryuugu. Since the first time that he stumbled upon her, She inmediately wanted to "Take him home". Even him isn't that annoying.
    • He also had an encounter with Sapphire Rhodonite, who found him so cute that she proceed to give him a big hug that ended suffocating the Poor Murloc. Thankfully, he left his egg in his temple but since then he tries his best to avoid Sapphire at all costs.
  • No one seems to understand what he usually speaks, but his motives are much darker than it seems (even managing to scare Diablo of all people). According to Psychic gods (Since there aren't many gods who speak Murloc language), His village was slaughtered by Humans, Orcs and Elves and as a result wants revenge against the culprits but Mysteriously ended in the Nexus. This has Earned the Sympathy of many gods, particularly those who like him are Fish People.
    • Aquaman is actually one of the few people that understand his Language (Beside the Psychics). As a result, Murky usually goes to his temple for "Therapy Sessions"
    • Meron is actually a little jelous of Murky, Since she always wanted to live a tragic story like him. Murky still can't believe that a Mermaid Princess, wants to actually experience the feeling of witnessing your village getting slaughtered. Even if she really didn't meant Ill will, He can't help but Facepalm when she says that.
    • Actually good friends with Leviathan the Tidehunter after their first meeting. Tidehunter really Admires Murky's Determination and sees him as the little brother he never had. He actually is training him so he can finally defeat Kunkka for good. Murky even has gotten used to some of Tidehunter's Ocurrances.
  • Befriended fellow god Sasuke Uchiha after he heard his story, since he also lost all his village as a kid. Sasuke actually tries to warn Murky to not let hatred drive him or Pursue a similar Path like he did, Or worse, end up like Ren Hakuryuu.
    • Kratos also identified with Murky's backstory, seeing in him the young and angry boy he used to be. Murky has been acting as some kind of Morality Pet to him lately, but he still brings him to battle when the time calls.
    • Murky is one of the few animals who isn't scared in the presence of Sayo Samonji and the latter actually encourages him to take revenge on all the people who wronged him. While Murky is grateful of the Boy's proposal, he is trying to lay off Vengeance for now.
  • A frequent visitor of the house of Food where he usually order his favourite food, the Puffer fish. Since his arrival, the fish food has decreased in quantity and many suspect that he has been stealing some of them to use them in battle.
    • It was later proven true that he indeed, had stolen those fishes and illegally sold them around the pantheon. The court of gods in retalation, has forced him to repay all the loses the house of Food experienced because of him. The solution? He opened a particlar Taco joint where he mixes tacos with Fishes. Since then Murky's Pufferfish Tacos has become a really popular point of interest in the Food House.
  • Has been ocasionally spotted doing a Special dance.
  • He usually can't stand Humans, but he has found a kindred spirit in Kenny McCormick, thanks to Kenny's Condition. Altough, Murky wonders where does Kenny respawns, But since Murky does this from an Egg, he thinks that Kenny might do something similar. This was confirmed true when Kenny told him that indeed, every time he dies he is reborn from his mother
    • Mysteriously enough, he gets along pretty well with Grenth, partially because Grenth is curious how Murky manages to revive minutes later after being killed. He has been taking closer looks to the eggs that the Baby Murloc carries so he can understand the nature of Murky's Unknown powers.
  • When Dhuum heard that another god who can cheat death entered the Pantheon, he want ballistic and demanded to see him. When he found Murky, he couldn't take him seriously and cutted him with his Scythe. Unfortunately, He wasn't prepared for the Murloc's Rampage and was ultimately defeated because Murky refused to stay dead for more than two seconds. He sweared to get him back sometime, but this conflict became much worse when he learned that Murky befriended his Archnemesis Grenth. Witnesses reported that dhuum didn't take the news very well
  • Once, he was found wearing a power armor and surprisingly, it looked really good on him. Many suspect this was the doing of Rena Ryuugu but she didn't comment on being involved with the creation of Grunty.
    • On another ocation, he was seen wearing an Easter Bunny suit. It was so cute that he was later spotted running away from a legion of Goddesses who wanted him as a Pet.
  • Note: Murky's status in the Pantheon is radically different than other deities, in the sense that he is one of few deities that his "Death rules" apply differently than the rest of the Ascended deities, alongside Grenth. (Altough he can still normally die, he has the distinction of always resurrecting inmediately from his egg)
  • "Mrgglglbrlg rmrmgllg mrggggm" note 
  • Also present in the House of Game Design.

  • Theme Song: Black Orchid Headquarters Rooftop, either version
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Kato-style mask
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good, originally Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Absolute Cleavage, The Best In Corporate Espionage, Combat Stilettos, Domino Mask, Hell-Bent for Leather, But She Cleans Up Nicely In A Qipao, She Knows Too Much, Stock Ninja Weaponry
  • Domains: Ninjas, Assassins, Corporate Espoinage, Ninjitsu and Taijutsu
  • High Priest: Larcen Tyler
  • Allies: Black Orchid, Jago, Maya Fallegeros, Kenshi Takahashi, Ezio Auditore
  • Rivals: Kasumi Goto, Crimson Viper, Kitana, Liu Kang, The Spy, Lady Shiva, Elektra Natchios
  • Enemies: Quan Chi, Shinnok, Kano, Ra's al-Ghul, Talia al-Ghul, Vector of the Wolfpack, Reaper, Widowmaker
  • Mentor To: Cassandra Cain-Wayne and Damian Wayne
  • Odd Friendship: with Leifang (due to their shared love of Chinese-style dresses)
  • Scouted By: Both the Grand United Alliance of Good and the Grand United Alliance of Evil
  • No one in the Pantheon bats an eye when a crimson-colored cloud of smoke appears in the Pantheon, the deities assuming that it's either Batman or one of the deified members of the Batfamily. Kano, for his part, thought that it was his Black Dragon cohort, Tasia. Everyone was pretty damn surprised to see a Japanese woman wearing a Kato-style mask and dressed in a quipao emerge from the smoke. Shadow Yamoto has come to the Pantheon.
  • When she was a mortal, Shadow was the darling of the Black Orchid Group, a criminal organization specializing in corporate espionage and assassination. Upon discovering that she herself would be eliminated should she fail a mission for the organization, Shadow attempted to blow the whistle on the organization. However, her mentor had gotten the jump on her and shoved her off the rooftop of the Black Orchid building, falling 101 stories to her death.
    • But her death was not the end, as she found herself competing in a martial arts contest hosted by the Eternal Champion, the prize being that the winner can return moments before their death to change their fate.
    • Turns out that Quan Chi had Shadow scouted to become one of his revenants. Fortunately for Shadow, the Eternal Champion had gotten to her first. Quan Chi's second choice? Hanzo Hasashi. Quan Chi still desires her soul in his service.
    • Liu Kang and Kitana are both pissed over the fact that Shadow had cheated death by winning the Eternal Champion's tournament, believing that they both deserve a second chance at life.
  • Her arrival has caught the attention of the deified assassins and spies in the Pantheon. Shadow is no fan of Ra's al-Ghul and his daughter, Talia, a bitter rivalry going back to her days with the Black Orchid. Even though Shadow is no longer with the organization, the animosity is still present.
  • Shadow was surprised to hear that a deity shares the same name as the organization that screwed her over. Fortunately for Shadow, Black Orchid is a good guy (with both Jago and Maya vouching for her), and while Shadow is slightly wary around Orchid, the pair have become allies.
  • Shadow finds herself in the crosshairs of both Reaper and Widowmaker, after refusing to join their team. When told that refusing them could have lethal consequences on her end, Shadow merely replied, "I died once already. It's no big deal."
  • Has a soft spot for children, which surprising. Shadow finds herself playing mentor to the youngest members of the deified Batfamily, Cassandra Wayne and Damian Wayne. Shadow actually had a laugh upon discovering that Damian was Talia's daughter with Bruce Wayne and the grandson of Ra's al-Ghul.

    Xion 
Xion, Goddess of the Erased (Number XIV, No. i, Replica)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/400px-Xion_Keyblade_Days-1.png
  • Theme Song: Musique pour la Tristesse de Xion, Vector to the Heavens (when battling)
  • Lesser Goddess, Greater God(dess) in boss form
  • Symbol: A bright seashell
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Artificial Artificial Human, expanding combat prowess, Transferable Memory, having may spoilers, Combat Stilettos, disappointment, being the Token Good Teammate (possibly more than Roxas), The Blank, Shapeshifter Default Form, Sequential Bosses
  • Domain: Exclusion, the Forgotten, Erasure
  • Followers: Protagonists of It's a Wonderful Plot storylines, burnt-out Torches, Linda Styles, the victims in Forget Me Not, Dr. W. D. Gaster, Captain Hoek and Cadet Stimpy
  • Allies: Roxas, Axel (Lea), Ventus, Riku, Ruby Rose, Master Hand, the Duck Hunt Dog, Roy Mustang, Mr. Eaten, Sunset Shimmer, Dog (sorta), Courage the Cowardly Dog, Filia, Snoopy, Pluto the Pup, Ash Crimson, Milla Basset, Guthix
  • Enemies: Master Xehanort (specifically his Nobody, Xemnas)
  • Once forgotten by everyone she'd ever met, until Roxas' ascension from within Sora's heart. In there, Roxas recalled her, and later fully remembered with a little memory jogging from Ruby Rose (due to a resemblance). She was eventually given a proper place in the Pantheon after a long and difficult series of events:
    • Roxas, Lea, and Ruby (in disguise as Xion) made a beeline for the Lost Woods to rescue their (Roxas and Axel's) friend.
    • As a result of this, chooses Ash Crimson as her High Priest after seeing his Heroic Sacrifice via Temporal Paradox.
    • Said High Priest has ascended, giving Xion extra company.
  • Riku is happy to see Xion again, having helped her out at different points of her one mortal year. While her Keyblade is still false, he's willing to train with her.
  • In life, Xion had a strange tendency: She would appear differently based on whomever was looking at her, and only her friends could see her preferred form. However, obtaining divinity seems to have resolved this issue.
  • Like with Roxas, she's a little uncomfortable around Raiden, for the same reasons.
  • Xion has formed an unlikely friendship with Master Hand. The latter knows what it's like to fall from grace and then claim a proper position at last, as he has in the past (with Xion being trapped in the Lost Woods outside the Pantheon, and Master Hand formerly being in the Fallen). As a token of their friendship, Xion gave Master Hand a seashell and Master Hand gave Xion a CD that can play her leitmotif in the background.
    • Since hearing of Master Hand's influence in the Duck Hunt Dog's ascension, Xion has gone to meet him and suffered severe Cuteness Proximity (much like when she met Pluto). Most gods are shocked that she bears no ill will toward the dog, but then remember how she's not unanimously loved herself.
    • It was during one of these visits that she eventually came into contact with a fellow ally of the dog, Sunset Shimmer, with whom developed she developed a similar friendship with over their Base-Breaking Character (though reduced in Sunset's case) status.
  • She also formed a friendship with Filia, another fellow dog lover, who fittingly enough, is also an Amnesiac Hero. Perhaps because of this, they have both sworn never to forget the other.
  • Both Roxas and Lea have joked that if Xion were to ever get a Pokémon partner of her own, it would be either Growlithe or Lillipup, owing to her love of dogs (compared to Roxas with Gardevoir, and Lea with Infernape).
  • Gets along very well with Roy Mustang, a fellow dog lover. His abilities with fire also remind her of Axel.
  • Considers herself to be a girl, and would therefore like the other gods to go with that.
  • She's the closest thing to a friend that Mr. Eaten has, mostly because of their similar fates. While Xion is smart enough not to ask for too many personal details, she's saddened that someone could have suffered an even worse un-personning than the one she experienced herself, and hopes that someday Mr. Eaten will find some solace beyond the hunger and rage.
  • She was, needless to say, very surprised to meet Ventus. In fact, when she first saw him, she mistook him for Roxas. It wasn't until Axel introduced him that Xion realized her mistake. Since then, Ventus occasionally joins Roxas, Xion, and Axel for ice cream.
    • Provided there's enough room for him, of course. Sometimes, one (or both) of the two Gardervoir might be with them. Xion has no idea on what to say other than that "she's lost on words".
  • See that thing about Ruby Rose being the catalyst of her return? It's a lie. The truth, as revealed in the incident known as Tarot Crusaders, her soul had been lost to Limbo and was used as a bargaining chip by Queen Mystica (aka the Friendship Asylum) so she could coerce Roxas to work with her and become the vessel that would send the darkness within Limbo back home. Unfortunately, due to Gangrel—off to save the Cutie Mark Crusaders—throwing a monkey wrench in her hand, Roxas went insane when he believed Xion was swallowed up by Limbo (she was knocked unconscious) and one thing lead to another that brought Gangrel back to Limbo and the two escaping before Limbo collapsed on itself. The above story with Ruby was made up so no one ever unlocks the unholy terror that is Limbo.
    • Because of Gangrel helping her escape, she has now become good friends with him and his ex-wife. She had to leave a while to be reunited with Sora, but Sora had a strange feeling to go see the vampire wrestlers and hand them a gift. Gangrel just hugged Sora as thanks, much to the Keyblade wielder's confusion.

Demigods

    Arngrim 
Arngrim, the God who Preferred Death Over Execution (Genius of the Battlefield)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/968722-300px_arngrim_high_large_4679.jpg
  • Demigod (yet he can keep up with the Intermediate Gods)
  • Symbol: His sword
  • Alignment: True Neutral, develops into Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Being Guts, Badass Normal, wearing no torso armor, BFS, Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Domain: Battle, Afterlife, Death
  • Allies: Lenneth Valkyrie, Hrist Valkyrie (sometimes)
  • Enemies: Lezard Valeth
  • The first thing that several gods noticed was Arngrim's eerie similarity to Guts. Some even believe they're the same person, as the two have yet to be seen together.
  • Having been an einherjar on multiple occasions, Arngrim felt that the Pantheon was similar to Valhalla in a few ways. He usually spends his time either in the House of Combat or sleeping on some stairs.
    • He has noticed that, unlike Odin, the Main House and Counsel of Gods actually don't bother to make trouble for the mortals, so Arngrim's content to just leave them alone. He's still not particularly reverent, however.
  • Some theorize that Arngrim committed suicide not only to avoid an execution, but because he's too awesome to be killed by any mortal but himself.
  • Arngrim has a colorful history, in regards to the other Valkyrie Profile gods in the Pantheon, having worked for Lenneth and Hrist, and once teaming up with Lezard. He's also fought against Hrist (with Lezard) and against Lezard (with both Valkyries, separate occasions). When asked about this, he shrugged and stated that, as a mercenary, he's used to this.
  • Arngrim is sometimes mistaken for Meowth when other people aren't listening. Arngrim rightfully cannot even grasp why.
  • Beware his Soul Crush, Final Blast. If you hear these words, stand back:

    Coco Reeve and Miranda Campbell 
Coco Reeve and Miranda Campbell, Goddesses of Cruel And Unusual Deaths
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_coco_and_miranda.png
Left: Miranda
Right:Coco
  • Demigoddesses
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Symbol: Their respective Para-mails
  • Portfolio: Cruel and Unusual Death, Mauve Shirt, Child Soldiers, We Hardly Knew Ye, Diabolus ex Machina, Bare Your Midriff, Spared by the Adaptation
  • Domains: Death, Children, Combat
  • Followers: Cranberry, Most of the cast of Future Diary
  • Allies: Ange, Hilda, Francesca Lucchini, Hibiki, Akatsuki, Ikazuchi and Inazuma, Raiden, Mami Tomoe, Kisaragi
  • Enemies: Embryo, Smaug, Nefarian, Deathwing, Acnologia
  • Odd Friendship: (Coco): Fate Testarossa
  • Fears: Portals, lightning and especially dragons, Malygos
  • Coco and Miranda were both Norma who were taken from their families as babies and were both forced to be Child Soldiers.
    • Unfortunately, both of their first battles ended in disaster as the both of them suffered very disturbing deaths.
    • Coco was bisected by lightning when a singularity opened right above her and Miranda was forcefully ejected from her Para-mail by a DRAGON and was quartered and devoured by three of them in mid-air. For good reason, neither Coco or Miranda want to talk about their past lives with other deities.
  • Ever since their deaths, Coco has been terrified of portals and lightning, causing Coco to stay far away from the houses of Time and Space and Fire & Electricity and Miranda has been terrified of dragons, although Coco shares this fear with Miranda so they both avoid the house of Dragons.
    • Coco also avoids Darius like the plague due to his main method of killing his enemies.
    • Coco's also deathly afraid of Chell and Hoopa due to their constant usage of portals. Coco has also started to fear Noob Saibot due to him often using portals to bisect his enemies, this ended up giving Coco nightmares for weeks.
    • Both Coco and Miranda (Especially Miranda) are terrified of many of the evil dragons of the Pantheon such as Smaug, Acnologia, Deathwing and Nefarian as well as Magylos due to his insanity. Many neutral and good dragons don't outright terrify them but they do become a lot more nervous and distrustful around them.
  • Due to Coco's death being a result of Coco being distracted, Miranda has taken on more of a protective big sister role with Coco to protect her from any other threats.
  • Upon their ascension, Coco and Miranda ran into fellow First Troop pilots Ange and Hilda. Upon meeting them, Coco asked Ange if she ever managed to get back to her magic nation. Ange said that she did but then told the Awful Truth, proceeding to tell Coco what the humans were like, and that Mana was in actuality, generated from a dragon held sacred to the dragon race and was not only the cause of the dragons' constant invasions, but the Norma being sent as Cannon Fodder to farm them in order for the dragons' hearts to fuel the source of Mana at the mutual expense of both dragon and Norma alike. Needless to say, Miranda felt utter indignation at having being used and dying to that end, but also vindication towards being right about said magic nation being a pile of bunk, especially hearing about the aftermath of the removal of Mana, when the humans heckled Ange for help like a bunch of needful jerks. Hearing that Ange scared them off and forced them to deal with their own problems made her giddy after all the crap their fellow Norma put up with.
  • Coco and Miranda are becoming friends with magic users who accept their lack of magic.
  • Coco and Miranda have been seen getting along well with Eko and Yuki Nagato due to sharing certain similarities with the both of them.
  • Despite the fact that Coco is deathly afraid of lightning, Coco is a good friend of Fate Testarossa due to her sounding like Ange and has been really nice to her. Whenever Fate gets into combat, however, Coco backs away.
  • Due to Coco and Miranda being taken to Arzenal while they were babies and forced to fight DRAGON's as children, both Coco and Miranda are good friends Francesca Lucchini and the Akatsuki shipgirls who also fight weird creatures despite being children.
    • Raiden has stated that he will protect Coco and Miranda and he hates seeing children used for warfare. This has led Coco and Miranda to becoming good friends with Raiden and they appreciate his desire to protect them both.
  • It's not uncommon for Coco to go to the house of food as she enjoyed the pudding back on Arzenal. Coco greatly prefers the pudding made by the house of food and due to her love of pudding, Coco has become good friends with Neptune.
  • Coco and Miranda both have a secret fear of Salamandinay. Both Ange and Salako have assured them that the dragons mean them no malice since their quarrel was with Embryo the whole time, and infact united with the Norma and together destroyed their mutual archnemesis, and now coexist in peace in the original earth from where the dragons came. Both Coco and Miranda believe them but still fear her and neither Ange or Salako can blame them given how they died.
  • After accidentally causing their deaths, one of the first things Ange did was pay for the tombstones for Coco and Miranda, the two of them were grateful that Ange did that but were worried that others might eventually forget about them so Treize told them not to worry about that as he keeps a list of all people who die in war or combat, no matter their allegiance, and makes a point to remember each name.

    Mother Gothel 
Mother Gothel, The Goddess Whose Age Caught Up With Her (Gothel)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gothel_transparent_8.png
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: The magic flower
  • Theme Song: Mother Knows Best (Reprise)
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Really 700 Years Old, Evil "Matriarch", Manipulative Bitch, Emotionally Abusive Stepmother, Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette, Vain Sorceress, Cares only for Rapunzel's hair, Wants to stay young and beautiful
  • Domains: Immortality, Rapid Aging
  • Allies: Evil Queen, Ra's Al Ghul, Ghetsis Harmonia
  • Rival: Voldemort
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Frollo
  • Enemies: Flynn Rider, Rapunzel, Quasimodo, Sora, Sophitia Alexandra, Bryan Mills, Jean-Luc Picard, Worf, Izumi
  • Gothel was an old woman who discovered a magic flower which kept her young through a magic song. It was until soldiers sent by the King of Corona to find a cure for his ill pregnant Queen, when the flower was discovered and cured her. As the result, their child Rapunzel bears a golden hair which holds the magical properties of the flower. She uses the hair to replenish her youth but when she snipped it, it lost its power and she began aging. Thus, she kidnapped her and kept her in a tower for 18 years and prevented her from leaving outside until Rapunzel meet the thief Flynn Rider.
  • After she died from old age and turning into dust after Flynn cut Rapunzel's hair which removed the magic from it, she ascended to the Pantheon, although as an old womannote . Somehow, her ascension caused Rapunzel's hair to grow out again with its magical properties (well, usually it fluctuated between that state and her post-cut state, but Gothel's ascension made it permanent. Of course, she couldn't reach Rapunzel with everyone getting in her path, so she needs to seek another source for eternal youth, yet she has used to the flower for so many centuries that she want Rapunzel's hair above all else.
  • She is despised by parents as she kidnapped Rapunzel as a baby and has emotionally abused her into staying in the tower and never leaving outside. She also like to put down Rapunzel while complimenting herself and was willing to lock her away when she drops her facade. Especially Bryan Mills because if you did, he will look for you, he will find you and he will kill you.
  • She found a companion through the Evil Queen who is vain about her beauty. So much that she wanted Snow White out of the way so that she could be "the fairest of them all," much like her and Rapunzel's hair. Though she doesn't interact with Lady Tremaine much, she doesn't like her methods because it didn't serve any purpose other than making Cinderella miserable.
  • Though Frollo has hatred toward witchcraft and her goal of eternal youth would make it like witchcraft, they were a lot in common in being manipulative stepparent to their stepchild through emotional abuse and would view them as a tool. In fact, she and Frollo were married in one universe.
    • Because of that, Quasimodo, also a friend of Rapunzel, hates her as well because of how similar she was to Frollo.
  • She actually approves of Ghetsis's methods as they both took a child and "adopt" them, raising them in a rather isolated environment and conditioned them for their own selfish purposes. They both have a different endgame, but other than that she's disturbing similar to him.
  • Do note that Gothel will use her people as a means to accomplish her goals, and so is prone to backstabbing people when it is part of her plans.
  • Her obsession with eternal youth and immortality caught the attention of Lord Voldemort who seeks immortality and the two end up forming a rivalry. According to him, only he can live forever.
  • Ra's Al Ghul noticed her on how she live for centuries through a magic flower and later through Rapunzel's hair while he survived through the Lazarus Pits which heal wounds and cure every ailments. Though it could drive a person insane if used too much, in which for Gothel, probably wouldn't make a difference.
  • Worf and Picard mistook Gothel for one of their allies Anij has ascended. Not only this isn't the case, Gothel even attempted to fool them for a way to achieve immortality. This made them hate her ever since.
  • Some thought that Gothel might have actually cared for Rapunzel at times: making Rapunzel her favorite dinner, agreeing to go on a long trip to get seashell for her paint she said for her birthday, and other things that Rapunzel genuinely love. But ultimately, her vanity and selfishness overweigh these qualities.
  • Attempted to gain knowledge on Philosopher's Stones and alchemy from Izumi as an alternate youth source. To say that it didn't go well for Gothel is an understatement. After her recovery, mentioning the words "Izumi," "Philosopher's Stone, or "housewife," cause Gothel to run screaming from the immediate area.
  • There's a rumor that Gothel was Megara, Hercules's (Disney incarnation) love interest. Neither party wants to talk about it.

  • The famous father and daughter duo whose deaths by Shakespeare was incredibly unexpected, the duo was brought back to life thanks to the influence of their superior and bring into the Pantheon
  • Sometime the two can be seen as Japanese Warlords named Hidetora and Saburo.
  • Macbeth and his wife were at first tried to have contact with the two because hearing that they are also usurpers but was rejected violently by both Lear and Cordelia due to how evil and a bad ruler he is. The fact that the four of them have many look-a-like and one of Lady Macbeth's High Priest is Lady Kaede doesn't help.
  • Due to the fact that the entire tragedy started because of Poor Communication Kills, Cordelia and Lear have been trying to rebuild their relationship and establish clear communication with each other. It isn't easy because Lear has gone insane due to grief of seeing his daughter beheaded, but Cordelia determines to not stop trying. Her effort moved many deities in the Pantheon who love their parents.
  • Due to her status as an exile, married to the King of France and led a coup against the English throne to reinstall her father, Cordelia has a tense relationship with other British royalties like King Arthur and Richard III. They sympathize with her situation but not her action of threatening the crown. They also have problem with the fact that Cordelia knows that her father isn't the most stable ruler and try to re-install him anyway.
    • Their relationship with Richard III is especially on bad term considering the fact Lear and him have many look-a-like.
  • Being a relatively popular work that has a long history, the duo has encountered many interesting interaction thanks to their incarnation:
    • Every mutants in the Pantheon are creeped out by Lear due to the fact that he sounds like a Sentinels that hunt them. Lear knows this and usually appear under one of his counterpart that looks like Magneto.
      • On the other hand, Tintin really warms up to Lear after meeting him due to the fact that his voice sounds like his good friend Capt. Haddock.
    • Lear is NOT pleased when discover that he looks like one of Jack Sparrow's pirates Capt. Barbossa and has been avoiding Sparrow ever since.
  • Chrom at first thought that this Cordelia was one of the Pegasus Knights in Yllise because of their similar names. Cordelia was sadden to hear about how the other Cordelia had to lose her entire squad in order to warn him about the capital's fall and (unknown to Chrom from other sources) how Cordelia never confessed her to him.
    • She met that woman upon her ascension and that Cordelia found her story to be very tragic.
