Alice Liddell/Kingsleigh, Avatar of the Power of Imagination

Charles Victor Szasz, God of Conspiracy Nutters (The Question, Vic Sage, "Nutjob", "That Kook")

Claude Rains, God of Cynical Mentors and Invisible People

Commander Farsight God of Zero Approval Gambits (O' Shovah, Communist Space Weeaboo)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A Tau Ensignia overa dark red rectangle.
  • Alignment: Definitely Lawful, but not evil.
  • Portfolio: Zero Approval Gambit, Broken Pedestal, Alternative Character Interpretation
  • Domains: Law, War, Protection
  • High Priestesses: Beatrice and Eva Ushiromiya
  • Allies: Madoka Kaname, Homura Akemi, Itachi Uchiha, Kratos Aurion, The Boss, Kiritsugu Emiya, Misaka Mikoto,
  • Worthy Opponents: Cyrus, Vulkan, Sangunius, Leman Russ,
  • Enemies: All four Chaos gods, Mork and Gork, Lucifer
  • Is never seen out of his special issue Crisis Suit.
    • The Dawn Blade he wields looks eerily Eldar in shape and design. This is started the theory that Farsight is the bearer of one of the Blades of Vaul, which explains his abnormal life span.
  • Has the utmost admiration ad respect for Madoka Kaname since he believes this human child to be a paragon of the concept of "The Greater Good". He will protect her by any means nessecary, including ordering the Far Sight Enclave to fight alongside the Sisterhood in the "Pantheonic Rebellion".

David Xanatos, God of Backup Plans (The Fallen, The Once and Future King)
  • "Fallen" Lesser God
  • Symbol: A castle atop a tower.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Magnificent Bastards, Manipulative Bastards, Corrupt Corporate Executives, Plans Always Have Some Kind Of Payoff, Regarding Love As A Weakness Even If It's His Own, Plenty of Vitues Despite His Alignment
  • Domains: Evil, Law, Planning, Tyranny
  • Followers: Hans Gruber, Chase Young.
  • Rivals: Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish
  • Enemies: Itachi Uchiha, Goliath.
  • He put the Magnificent in Magnificent Bastard.
  • He may be part of The Fallen now, but this is all part of his plan to one day usurp the throne of O-Haruhi-sama.
  • "And lo, when the Blue Dragon was laid low by the frost and flame, did Overlord Xanatos steeple his fingers and smirk." Xanatos 3:16. Phase two is complete.
  • Batman, Yuko, and G-Man are the only members of the Pantheon he comes even close to considering equals. After all, it doesn't pay to underestimate your competition. Phase 3 is complete.
  • Itachi Uchiha has more than once stopped his plans by complete accident. But don't worry, Xanatos has backup plans. Not to mention, he puts the fact that Itachi ruins his own plans into account. Phase 4 is complete.
  • Helped Alice Liddell ascend to a stronger position as the Avatar of the Power of Imagination and moving her closer to him. Phase 5 is complete.
  • Recently has another Worthy Opponent in form of Littlefinger. Right now, there is something of a chess match between the two to decide the better manipulator. Phase 6 is complete.
  • Is currently involved in an Enemy Mine scenario with Seraph Lamington, Batman, Cosmos, and Philemon as part of "The Pantheonic Rebellion". His motive in it all: Madoka reminds him of his own daughter, and YHVH's plot to kill her provoked a Papa Wolf rage. Uh... Phase 7 is... complete?
  • Some people were wondering where his wife Fox is in the Pantheon or if he has left her behind, seeing that he finally achieved immortality by virtue of being a god in the Pantheon. One would think he's be looking for a way to bring her here as well. Little to they know is that Xanatos is doing so; he's just hiding it.

Edward Nigma, God of Riddles (The Riddler)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A Question Mark.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Chronic Villainy, Gentleman Thieves, Tricksters, Idiosyncrazy, Criminal Mind Games, Constant Self-Defeat, Insufferable Genius.
  • Domains: Evil, Crime, Puzzles.
  • Followers: the Sphinx.
  • Allies: Joker, Penguin, Catwoman.
  • Opposed by: Batman, Professor Layton.
  • "Riddle me this: What goes on 4 legs in the morning, 2 legs at noon, and 3 legs in the evening?" Most of the gods just rolled their eyes at his reusing the riddle of the sphinx upon his ascension, but most of them cringed at his answer he gave: "A baby that you cut the legs off of and then give a cane to go around on."
  • The Riddler is constantly trying to prove himself smarter than Batman, the God of Planning. As a result, he continuously petitions to join the command division of the GUAE in order that his intellect might be better used. Melkor mostly rolls his eyes at this, saying that riddler is too obsessed with riddles to create plans of no escape.
  • Despite being less powerful than his more crazy pal Joker, The riddler does hold one small bit of satisfaction over him: He still got to be more famous in that Adam West show.
  • Riddler loves to lord his intelligence over the house of mentalism, despite being only an intermediate god. Most of the greater gods just roll their eyes at him, and often call on batman to shut him up if he ever gets too talkative. It's this reason he was demoted to Lesser God, merely out of annoyance.
  • Riddler's outfit is always changing. Sometime's he's in a skin tight unitard with question marks on it. Sometimes he's in a green suit. sometimes he's got long hair and a more fluid costume and sometimes he has a combination of these things.

Freddy Krueger, Avatar of Nightmares (Son of 100 Maniacs, The Springwood Slasher, The Man of Your Dreams)

George Smiley, God of Spymasters and Hard Espionage Tropes
  • Lesser deity.
  • Symbol: his tie and spectacles.
  • Alignment: inclined to be Lawful Good, but his profession leans closer to Neutral Good or True Neutral.
  • Portfolio: Stale Beer flavoured spying.
  • Domain: Intelligence-gathering, recruitment and turning of moles.
  • Followers: Peter Guillam, Stephen Maturin, Len Deighton's unnamed protagonist, Varric Tethras.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: James Bond (he loathes the Tuxedo and Martini flavor of spycraft, feeling that glamour and visibility have no place in the intelligence-gathering business.)
  • As opposed to the common perception of spies and spymasters, Smiley's appearance is that of a weary old civil servant. Outside of his intelligence service, very few speak of his deeds; as a result, most of the Pantheon thinks of him as just another member of the Celestial Bureaucracy. The few who don't disregard him hold him in high esteem.
  • Rumored to be the ultimate controller of an alarming number of moles scattered throughout the Pantheon, many of whom he recruited personally. Despite his skill at piecing together information, hunting down moles, and inducing Heel Face Turns, he wishes for none of it and views it all as Dirty Business. He does it because someone has to.
  • His service, the Circus, is viewed as the go-to institution for untangling Whack A Mole plots, despite having been infiltrated several times in the past, and despite not being technically under his command. Like Smiley himself, the building is drab and run-down, belying its success rate at infiltrating and undermining rival agencies.

Haruka Kotoura, Goddess of Traumatic Telepathy.

Iago, God of Manipulative Wordplay, Ambiguous Foe Yay, Jealousy, Magnificent Bastardry, Casual Racism and Misogyny, and Unspecified Motives (Honest Iago)

Lambda-11, Goddess of Empty Slates (The Mechanical Soul)

Lelouch vi Britannia, God of Rebellion (Lelouch Lamperouge, Zero)

Light Yagami, God of Improbable Strategy (Kira)
  • Theme Music: Light's Theme or the Death Note Theme
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A Black Notebook.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Well Intentioned Villainy (especially Knights Templar), Jumping Off the Slippery Slope, Justice, Foreign Sounding Names, Disproportionately Dramatic Moments, Gambit Roulettes, Xanatos Speed Chess, Ominous Latin Chanting, Victims Of Foe Yay, Magnificent Bastards, Visions For a Better World, God Complexes, Ubermenschen.
  • Domains: Deathbound, Destruction, Evil, Inquisition, Planning, Retribution.
  • Followers: Almost all of Japan.
  • Enemies: L Lawliet, Batman, Black Orchid.
  • Opposes: Dark Yagami.
  • Dominic Deegan is plotting for his spot, but Light already has plans for him in case he does (especially for Lelouch Lamperouge and Dominic Deegan). Has allied with Dethklok, officially to kill off opponents during their concerts, but has gotten used to their music. (Under their earthly avatar "Bloody Valentine.")
  • Zhuge Liang, the Sleeping Dragon, is merely biding his time.... That or his wife is keeping him from taking the job for fear of his working himself to death again.
  • Has manipulated Ichigo and Ryuk into representing different views of the afterlife (or lack of). The fear of death can be used to change society; and it's the unknown of death that causes the fear. If even the gods can't agree...
  • Disgruntled at Popeye for only selling spinach, not potato chips that he can eat epically. And that he can't write his name on the Death Note because the power of Death Note is compelled with the power of spinach (he tried once).
  • Hatched a plan to twist the look of Simon Belmont. It succeeded, now Simon looked like him and Light hoped to use him as a necessary scapegoat whenever necessary. It turns out that he is trying to remove all traces of all Castlevania good guys from the Pantheon, citing them as one of the main obstacles of his plans.
  • Has joined forces with Emperor Palpatine and is helping him with his secret plans to stage a coup d'etat against the Main House as his new apprentice, Darth Kira. Those aware of this are secretly amused, and are counting the days until Palpatine recruits a new apprentice, and the old one dies. Again.
  • Is not related to Iori Yagami. However, some can't help but laugh at this.

Luna Lovegood, Goddess of Zany Theories (Loony)

Mako Mankanshoku, Goddess of Hilariously Absurd but Fitting Logic
note 

Mion and Shion Sonozaki Twin Goddesses of Gadflies (Club Leader - for Mion)
  • Lesser Goddesses individually. Intermediate combined.
  • Symbol: An Airsoft Gun with a "Troll Face" on the holster.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Mion), Chaotic Good (Shion normal state), Chaotic Evil (Shion when in her "infected state"). They do have Lawful Evil and Neutral Evil followers
  • Portfolio (Both): Good Natured "Trolling", Mafia Princesses, Twin Switch, Attraction To Good Natured Men, Red Oni, Blue Oni (Shion is red, Mion is blue).
  • Domains (Both): Good, Family, Community, Trickery.
    • Mion: Strength.
    • Shion: Protection.
  • Superior: Ryukishi 07.
  • Allies (Both): Rika Furude, Oyashiro-Sama, Rena Ryuguu, Satako Houjou, Keiichi Maebara (especially for Mion), Mr. Miyagi, Cheshire Cat, Pinkie Pie, Princess Celestia, Bugs Bunny.
    • Mion: Itsuki Myoudouin.
    • Shion: Etna, Hungary, Valvatorez, Artina.
  • Enemies (Both): Yuuki Terumi, Teppei Hojou, Bernkastel, Tzeentch, The Joker, Izaya, Handsome Jack, Basco.
    • Mion: Souther, Eric Cartman.
    • Shion: Laharl, The Yandere Quartet.
  • As the heroic counterparts of the dual Gods of Trolling, it comes to no surprise that the two are Terumi and Bernkastel's arch enemies.
    • Twin Switch is one of their favorite ways to screw with people's heads. The twins revel in the confusion it sows before dropping the hammer. Its also a way they gather intelligence.
  • Not to be underestimated as they are surprisingly skilled both at hand to hand combat and as a strategist due to the game club. Shion packs an assault rifle.
  • Mion created the GUAG "Troll" Off as a way to mock and otherwise troll Terumi. With her portfolio, it came as no surprise that she was the winner of said contest.
  • Is alarmed by the formation of Trollkaiger and have formed a group called Lol Ranger to counter them. It got personal when Trollkaiger (mainly Bernkastel) trolled Shion with the very thing responsible for her original state in Purgatory.
    • Mion's designation is the "Yellow Ranger". Shion is the "Green Ranger".
  • Shion is not allowed in the Treasury because of a certain "Old Friend" that is under Class S Lock Down.
  • Etna and Shion would normally be enemies, but Shion managed to win her over with her mischevious nature combined with a Marshmallow Hell prank (in her Angel Mort outfit to boot) she pulled on Laharl. Etna couldn't stop laughing for days after that. She laughed for several days more when a picture of the act (which Mion took from behind the shadows) was sent to her.
  • Mion and Shion's tactics for gaining lulz vary slightly. Mion focuses on more direct button pushes and openly perverted jokes. Shion's approach is more subtle and stewing, and occasionally uses sexual inneuendo.
  • Shion absolutely hates the Yandere Quartet because they remind her of the things she's been trying to atone for.
  • Don't mention Sins of Our Fathers type actions in either sister's presence.
  • Mion was estatic over the arrival of her favorite target and post series boyfriend Keiichi. Shion had a tearful reunion with Satako during her arrival.
  • When they found out about how Rika's allies were targeted in "The Great Upheaval", the Sonozaki twins gathered Lol Ranger and planned their first major operation. Let's just say that they have something "special" planned for Lucifer.

Mokkan, God of Those who Cannot Resist Betraying Everyone They Know and their Little Dogs
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His signature axe.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Betraying Everyone, Playing Said Betray-ees like fiddles, Being a Marlfox, Grinding Axes
  • Domains: Trickery, Animal
  • High Priest: Neyla
  • Allies: None. Can you blame them?
  • Enemies: His siblings, who (fortunately for him) have yet to ascend, Starscream.
  • It's believed that Mokkan got this post by stringing along the previous holder and then (of course) lopping his head off. He will neither confirm nor deny this.
  • Even Starscream despises this guy. While Screamer might be a content betrayer, he'll gladly keep people around who choose to be loyal to him instead of betraying them all. His latest form in particular dislikes this guy.

Nagi Homura, Malevolent Trickster God

"BLACKOUT."

Psycho Mantis, God of Illusory Failure
  • Theme Song: Mantis's Hymn
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His gas mask
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Blood Knight, Asexuality, Interface Screw, breaking the fourth wall, going mad from hearing unsavory thoughts, Psychic Static, wearing a gas mask
  • Domains: Fighting, Destruction, Hatred, Psychic, Interface Screw
  • Allies: Liquid Snake, Revolver Ocelot(?), Solidus Snake, Steven Armstrong
  • Enemies: Humanity in general, the RED Team, Teddie
  • Followers: The AI Colonel, Screaming Mantis (possibly unwitting), Homonculus, Mr. Resetti
  • Many thought they'd seen the last of Psycho Mantis after the Sorrow purged his ghost from the mortal realm, but thanks to Liquid Snake's influence (and surely one of Ocelot's plans), Psycho Mantis found himself in the Pantheon shortly after Liquid's own ascension. Tempted by the chance to kill people once more (and mess with their heads), Mantis accepted his position and is now known to work under Liquid on occasion.
  • Mantis tends to approve of Senator Armstrong's plans, not out of ideals, but from the chance to, by his own words, kill as many people as he can.
  • It's currently unknown if he was aware of Liquid-Ocelot's true identity while his ghost was controlling Screaming Mantis.
  • Mantis has built something of a reputation for himself amongst the gamers in the Pantheon, wary of his trickery. He's been known to mess with their games whenever the mood strikes him. Upon discovering that most modern consoles couldn't be messed with like in the days of old, Mantis flew into a psychic rampage that required a few Atlus bosses to be sent in order to take care of him.
  • Feels oddly nostalgic about his childhood when he sees Haruka Kotoura due to having a similar problem, but is otherwise neutral toward her. The latter stays far away from the former, however.
  • Thanks to his mind reading, he's deduced that most people are constantly thinking about sex. Out of disgust, he tends to avoid the House of Love for this reason, as well as certain parts of the House of Emotion.
    • He's especially sickened by Teddie. As a creature borne from humanity's emotions, and a lascivious one at that, Mantis views Teddie as a perfect example of one of his many reasons to hate humanity.
  • RED Team gods in the Pantheon briefly mistook him for an enemy Pyro when they saw Mantis creating hallucinated flames, and nearly blew him to bits. He now holds a special hatred for them.
  • In spite of being killed by him, Mantis is indifferent to Solid Snake's presence in the Pantheon.
  • Does not care for the Crash Bandicoot series.
  • Is rumored to have encountered Big Boss during childhood. Mantis has yet to comment on this.

Seija Kijin, Goddess of Interface Screws and Who Contradicts Everyone
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Theme Music: Reverse Ideology
  • Symbol: A circle made out of black, white and red arrows.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil to Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Screwing with the screen, Those who Oppose Anyone, Trolls, Weak Powers, yet being a That One Boss, Turned Playable, Amanojaku.
  • Domains: Youkais, gameplay.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: The Trollkaiger
  • Opposes: Everyone else!
  • An amanojaku who exists to be the opposite of every one else. In her home realm, she was the manipulative mastermind of the Miracle Mallet incident, which had effects on Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame and Sakuya Izayoi, who started to act weirdly due of their weapons having been possessed. Though she is not that strong, she was still really difficult.
    • However, her ascension came when she became a star of her own game, where she was able to clear out almost impossible spellcard patterns using bunch of (empowered) junk, what truly impressed everyone.
  • If it wasn't clear already, Seija opposes everyone. Not in the sense of "being the ultimate evil" like Anti-Monitor of Grima, but more like "a Troll who wants everyone to hate her". That is the true nature of amanojaku, after all.
    • Because of this, Trollkaiger has gained interest on her, and want her to join their ranks. Where Seija does not like to amuse anyone with her actions, she thinks that being in a group who would oppose almost everyone in the Pantheon would be a great idea. She has no plans on officially joining them, however.
  • She knows the visual similarities with Ryuko Matoi. She has gone as far as to wear a fake Senketsu and carry a fake Scissor Blade to intentionally piss her off. However, she has made a deal that she can mess with Nui Harime if Ryuko can suggest good enough of a plan.
    • Another favourite target of hers is Viridian. She just loves to screw with him whenever he is flipping the gravity around.
  • To the surprise of many, she actually helped Sakuya and the rest of the Scarlet Devil Mansion crew to save Remilia and make her a goddess. This was apparently due of her wanting to show that she is not really on GUAE side by attacking Dracula and Dio Brando, and to piss off Terumi by having another "shitty vampire" ascend.
  • Was surprised that Shinmyoumaru Sukuna managed to ascend into the Pantheon. However, in something what can be considered kindness, she decided not to give her a "welcoming party" and left her alone for now, with her claiming that it is simply because of her being such a good tool before the Miracle Mallet incident was solved.
  • Also can be found inside House of Gaming.

Solidus Snake, God of Properly Placed Paranoia (George Sears, The President Of The United States, Ol' Georgie Boy (Said by Sundowner))
  • Theme Song: Yell Dead Cell, Father And Son
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The American Flag wrapped around two Katana, The Minshuto ("Democrat") and Kyowato ("Republican")
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Anti-Villain, To Raiden, His Revenge on The Patriots, Was one and created units of them, The "snake arms" on his exoskeleton suit, He wields two swords
  • Domains: Freedom, Sword Wielding, Liberty, Justice, Speed, Being Remembered
  • Allies: Funny Valentine, Revolver Ocelot, Steven Armstrong, Sundowner, Mistral, Monsoon, Khamsin
  • Enemies: Raiden, Solid Snake, Liquid Snake, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark,
  • He started to realize how far the Patriots reach had gained and decided to ascend and gain allies in his attempts to fight The Patriots, though many think that he is only being paranoid, he has shown to be right as he showed the Future in which The Patriots were in control.
  • He is the Reason Raiden is Jack The Ripper and that Raiden is will always his enemy and he has a new upgraded power armor to fight on his level.
  • When he was told that Revolver Ocelot was in The Pantheon, he at first was livid until he discovered what Ocelot was really after all along: The destruction of The Patriots, since then Solidus has offered Ocelot help, though he is often wary around him.
  • Is probably the only one of Big Boss's Clones to not have a problem with Big Boss, he is the only one to treat him with great respect.
  • Is trying to uphold the American ideals of freedom and equality for all. He will uphold that even if that means the deaths of hundreds.
  • He also absolutely hates any other member of the Pantheon that believes in attempting to hold absolute control and do so over Individual rights as he thinks they are no better then The Patriots and must be killed.
  • He works alongside Steven Armstrong as he too agrees with his Beliefs.
  • Is often at odds with both his brothers Liquid and Solid, Liquid believes that there can only be One Boss and One Snake and is attempting to eliminate him at times. Solid often thinks he is going to far as has tried to stop him.
  • He does have good memories about the time he and Ocelot were talking about the plans for taking over Metal Gear during The Shadow Moses Incident.
  • He also works along side President Funny Valentine as they have similar beliefs of what is good for The Country.

Tsukishima Shukuro, God of Fake Memories

Vaas Montenegro, God of Breaking Lectures
