Intermediate Gods

    Homestar Runner 
Homestar Michael (Stipe) Runner, The Ditzy God (No-Armed Whitey, Kevin Du Brow, Homeslice, Homestar Bunmaker, Mr. Dee Williams, The Deckeman, Supreme Overlord, The Human Grate-On-My-Nerves, Homestarrunner.com, Lionel Richie)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/180px-NewestHomestar_9833.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His propeller cap
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Former Fools, Being Out To Lunch, Being A Really Big Kid, Having a Hawd Time Speaking Pwopuhwy
  • Domains: Love, Luck, Stupidity, Trickery
  • Followers: Chris Griffin (Family Guy), T-Rex (Dinosaur Comics), Italy (Axis Powers Hetalia)
  • Allies: Marzipan (off-and-on), Strong Bad (he thinks they're allies, anyway…), Ayumu "Osaka" Kasuga. No one is quite sure if Chauncey Gardiner is an ally or not, but they do have the most interesting conversations.
  • Rivals: Squirrel Girl (his greatest rival in the All-Squirrel Football League)
  • Everybody loves the him! He's a terrific athlete!
  • During the Free Country Wars, Homestar Runner ruled over Marzistar/Homezipan alongside Marzipan, until Strong Bad was able to trick King Homestar into bringing Coachnya into the war against Marzipan's wishes. The country then dissolved into East Marzistar and East Homezipan.
  • According to Homestar, he once ate Luigi during Halloween, saying, "He tasted like mushrooms." Luigi has declined to comment, although considering he once survived being eaten by Bowser, there may be some truth to Homestar's statement.

    Mao 
Mao, God of Genre Savvy Failure and Personal Space Invasion (Dean of Evil Academy, Netherworld's No. 1 Honor Student)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mao5345252345_2769.png
  • Theme Song: Go, Mao! and Fugue of Hell
  • Rank: Intermediate God (Overdeity if fully becoming Dark Mao)
  • Symbol: His Evil Academy jacket and glasses
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (With good leanings)
  • Portfolio: Failure to fully grasp tropes, constant invasion of personal space in the name of science, infamy due to said invasion, Dean of Nether Institute Evil Academy, Power of the Unknown Cosmos, hidden destructive powers, Raspberyl's Rival
  • Domains: Demonic, Science
  • Allies: Princess Sapphire, Almaz, Mr. Champloo, Rutile, Stella Grossular, Kira Daidouji, Neo Cortex
  • Rivals: Raspberyl
  • Opposed by: Laharl, Flonne, Abed Nadir, any and all potential test subjects
  • Enemies: Super Hero Aurum
  • After years of consideration, Mao finally ascended though he's not very happy about his position. However, his disappointment was short lived upon realizing that he now had a treasure trove of specimens within his reach.
    • Most of the gods of the Nippon Ichi multiverse shuddered in fear upon his ascension as they had been the target of Mao's experimentations at one time in their lives. Raspberyl, Mao's rival and the only one he doesn't target, is the only exception.
  • Ever since his arrival at the Pantheon, people has been very nervous when hearing the voice of Edward Elric. Apparently they sound very similar to each other.
  • Mao on a few occasions has been invited by some good-aligned gods and goddesses to the House of Friendship as they noted that he holds The Power of Friendship inside him. He rebukes said gods and goddesses, saying that his power is that of the "Unknown Cosmos".
  • He belives that Gordon Ramsay might be an alternate verision of Mr Champloo and wanted to perform experiments on him to see if this was true. Mao has now been banned from the House of Food as a result.
  • Now that Igor has vacated his spot in the House of Love, Mao is planning on being his replacement, hoping to continue his research on The Power of Love. However, all the gods want to keep Mao out of the House of Love and are planning to ban him, Flonne, one of Mao's many targets, being at the forefront of the ban.
    • However, he eventually told every one that he is not a pervert, and anything saying otherwise is just him thinking about all the experiments he could do with a given subject, not caring about their gender. Those who have tried implying that he really is a pervert even after that have been on a receiving end of either Blast Finger or Evil Modification.
  • Really got annoyed when the Court of the Gods decided to cast Super Hero Aurum to the Fallen. Not because he didn't think he deserved it, but this way he cannot experiment on him all he wants and neither can he serve Mao anymore. And then he was made into a proper god, what annoys him even more.
  • After Mao joined GUAC, Raspberyl began a rigorous training regimen to help her get stronger should Mao ever attack GUAG or give in to his dark side. Mao could only grin in anticipation.
    • There are rumors that part of his reason for joining GUAC was to shock Beryl into wanting to become stronger, feeling she wouldn't train as hard if he had joined the GUAG with her. Mao constantly refutes such rumors.

    Nero Wolfe 
Nero Wolfe, God of Lazy Brilliance
  • Rank: Intermediate God
  • Symbol: An orchid.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Brilliant people who hate to work, Great (but Lazy) Detectives, those who are Only in It for the Money, Big Eaters, Creatures Of Habit
  • Domains: Intellect, culture
  • Followers: Archie Goodwin (albeit a very snarky one)
  • Allies: Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Inspector Lestrade (albeit reluctantly in all cases),
  • There was some conflict between Wolfe and Mycroft Holmes over who would ascend to this position. Not because either man wanted it, you understand — because they were both so lazy that they resented the intrusion into their habits and were desperately trying to figure out some way to pass it off to the other man. Wolfe won (or lost, depending on your view) when Mycroft pointed out that his most recent incarnation wasn't actually that lazy.
  • There has been some talk of pitting Wolfe against Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot to see which of them is the greatest deductive mind. Wolfe inevitably finds a reason not to participate.
  • Upon ascension, Wolfe took the unusual step of bringing along his unascended legman, Archie Goodwin. This caused some consternation, but Wolfe pointed out that Goodwin was essential to his operations, and that if he was to have to start operating under his own power he would logically cease to be 'lazy'. No one was particularly convinced by this argument — least of all Goodwin himself — but they eventually decided it wasn't worth the hassle. Goodwin is therefore a rare example of an unascended mortal who has full access to the Pantheon depending on Wolfe's needs at the time.
  • When in the Pantheon, Wolfe generally keeps to his own rooms in the library, and maintains a fixed and rigid schedule, only meeting potential clients between the hours of nine-to-eleven and four-to-six. The other times, he is either dining, sleeping or nursing the orchids in the rooms he has set up for this purpose. This has caused a lot of grief when high-ranking members of the Pantheon have gone to consult with Wolfe outside of these hours only to find he breaks them for no one.

Lesser Gods

     Abed Nadir 
Abed Nadir, God of Genre Savviness
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abed_7105.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A video camera, a fortress made out of pillows, and a room with dark walls and orange tape arranged in squares on the walls.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: The Genre Savvy, Meta Guys, Tropers and other pop culture fanatics, cosplayers, those with Ambiguous Disorders and those who those who lean heavily on the fourth wall without quite managing to break it.
  • Domains: Stoicism, Craft, Creation, Balance, Knowledge, Insight, Awareness, Analysis
  • Allies: Batman (reluctantly)
  • Enemies: The Joker, Nicholas Cage (He doesn't understand him)
  • Followers: Troy Barnes, Annie Edison.
  • He's a God now. Cool. Coolcoolcool.
  • He actually made a video about his ascension to the Pantheon for his film studies class ... one week before his ascension to the Pantheon. He's not an actual prophet or anything (although this did lead him to almost be assigned to the House of Prophecy at one point), he's just that good at recognising what tropes are going to be applicable to his current situation. Some will still approach him as an oracle, however, but those who do are usually too Genre Blind to heed his advice until it's too late. He doesn't mind; he knows as well as anyone that Cassandra Truth is a trope and that it works that way for a reason.
  • He tends to unsettle a lot of the other Gods who pass his way due to his calm, stoic and emotionless nature, his ability to predict what's going to happen to them based on the tropes they're dealing with at any given moment, and his insistence that the Pantheon itself is merely an unofficial collection of various characters from different media assigned various ranks and roles of Godhood for the amusement of those doing the ranking.
  • Although he does enjoy and dabbles in creating fiction, he tends to act best as a documentarian, and has a tendency to follow the members of this House and others with a video camera to record their actions. Even the less Genre Savvy Gods have noticed that whenever Abed's filming them, a lot of chaos tends to follow.
  • He is a huge admirer of Batman and tends to cosplay as him, which has drawn the attention and ire of the Joker. Both the Joker’s attempts to do battle with him and Batman’s attempts to discourage him have met with failure, since Abed’s just so Genre Savvy he’s aware of what they’re doing, and thinks that it's absolutely awesome. He’s also admires the Doctor, although he does believe that the Doctor’s Inspector Spacetime cosplay leaves a lot to be desired.
  • There are rumours that an evil, twisted version of Abed from a timeline where everything went wrong due to a failure to catch a dice exists somewhere out there in the multiverse, as equally versed in tropes as Abed himself but malevolent to boot, seeking to replace Abed and warp reality into a mirror of his own darkest timeline.
  • He is particularly strong at noticing when the Pantheon has undergone a Art Shift, but due to his many issues many — the other Gods included — tend to just view this as symptomatic of a breakdown on Abed's part.
  • Although Abed is one of the lesser-powered Gods, it is unwise to pick battles with him — not only does his innate knowledge of genre tropes enable him to hold his own regardless, but he is also part of a study group of True Companions who will not tolerate any one of their number being messed with.
    • That said, he considers Nicholas Cage his Achilles' Heel. He can figure out every actor and person in the pantheon, but when asked if Nicholas Cage is a good or bad actor, all he came up with is a spot on hammy imitation and the sad conclusion that "people are random and meaningless." It took a good 2 weeks of therapy to get his head on straight after that, though his friend Shirley did give a hand.

    Aegon the Unworthy 
Aegon Targaryen, The Fourth Of His Name, The God Who Doesn't Think Things Through (Aegon the Unworthy)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aegon_iv.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His crown, huge and heavy with red gold and dragon points
  • Alignment: Stupid Evil
  • Portfolio: One Of The Worst Kings Of Westeros, Being a Jerk To Self-Destructive Levels, Really Gets Around, Source of The Blackfyre Rebellions, Posthumous Character, The Hedonist, From Good Looking To Bloated Monarch, Big Brother Bully, Didn't Think This Through, Wash Her and Bring Her to My Bed, King on His Deathbed, Hedonism Born Of Parental Abandonment, Fat Idiot
  • Domains: Lust, Royalty, Vices, Family(abused)
  • Allies: Caligula, Smaug, Hansel and Gretel, Kinzo Ushiromiya, Nikolai Dmitri Bulygin, Billy, Zapp Brannigan, his favorite bastard Daemon Blackfyre
  • Vitriolic Best Buds with: Glenn Quagmire, Panty Anarchy, Zeus
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Sigmund Freud
  • Additional relationship with: Aemon, Rhaegar, Aerys and Daenerys Targaryen, Robert, Stannis and Renly Baratheon, Jon Snow (descendantsnote ), Aegon and Rhaenys Targaryen (ancestors)
  • Enemies: Oogie Boogie, The Nohr Royal Siblings, The Kasugano twins, Mad Moxxi, Dokuro Mitsukai, Hera, Princess Bubblegum, Zelda, Lancelot
  • Opposed by: Most of Westeros, the intelligent members of the Leadership and Royalty
  • Worships: Slaanesh
  • Aegon Targaryen, Fourth of His Name, was the eleventh Targaryen king. Son of Viserys II, he would start out promising and attractive young prince, skilled with lance and sword. However he suffered from a Fatal Flaw; zero foresight and the inability to rule himself. His petty wiles and lusts would devastate the realm, perverting the law and upon legitimizing his bastards start a series of civil war that would trouble Westeros for decades. By his death, he is regarded as one of the worst kings to ever rule Westeros, becoming known as Aegon the Unworthy.
  • Though his descendant Robert Baratheon is quite the manwhore, the Unworthy makes him seem chaste. He would take nine mistresses, in addition to sleeping with countless other women(he reckons 900 in total). He has fourteen known bastards, though probably dozens more unacknowledged. It'd get to the point men would get favors from him by pimping out women and even their own daughters. To continue with his whoring, he has hired Nikolai Dmitri Bulygin. The more women he gets him, the more he'll look the other way and do whatever he wants.
    • Can be seen going on ventures for women with Zapp Brannigan and Charlie Harper.
  • Much of the disasters of his reign come from his unchecked libido. He would continue sleeping with opposing families, giving away valuable dragon eggs for sex and hiring the wrong people. He also used wooden-siege "dragons" filled with wildfire, gave the sword Blackfyre to his bastard and other stupidly bitter things. Even Glenn Quagmire, Panty and Zeus, who like his lustiness and go on adventures in the House of Lust, believe that he's going too far. His response to the pantheon's criticisms? Doesn't matter, had sex.
  • Some speculate that he was outright trying to be the worst king ever, but it's most likely he just didn't give a shit since its all about him.
  • Is on poor terms with the House of Family, given how much of an utter dick he was to his. He constantly bullied his brother Aemon despite guarding him, treated his sister-wife cruelly and consistently butted heads with his responsible son Daeron. He'd much rather prefer his bastard Daemon Blackfyre, and the Blackfyre Rebellion was in part a spiteful "fuck you" to his heir. The Nohr Siblings hate him quite a lot, being much like their own perverted, cruel father Garon.
  • Speculated to have poisoned his own father. This remains unconfirmed, but he is an indirect kinslayer by cuckolding the prior king Baelor the Blessed, who fasted to death upon learning his wife had a kid with another man. Also speculated that one of his mistresses was a child he had with a previous mistress.
  • Assumes that a lot of white-haired deities in the pantheon are his bastards, given he has a lot of them. He mainly assumed that the twincestous Kasugano twins were his, but they hate the Unworthy for being abusive to his sister-wife and generally being a terrible person. He's had more success with Hansel and Gretel, if only because he enables their batshit craziness.
  • Tried to make Princess Bubblegum and Zelda his tenth and eleventh mistress, but they found him repellent and kicked his ass. Later he thought he could tame Dokuro Mitsukai, only to be proven completely off the mark.
  • Most gods believe that he and Mad Moxxi would get along swimmingly, however they were quickly proven wrong due to how much of a hypocrite he was. Despite being a massive philanderer, he reacted violently when Ser Terrence Toyne broke his vow of celibacy with his mistress Bethany Bracken; he dismembered the poor kingsguard while making Bethany watch, before killing her and her father. Were he to sleep with Mad Moxxi, he would likely try to "reserve" her and probably try killing her in a mercurial fit.
  • Would eventually die from flesh worms, eating him alive and leading him into great pain that even the milk of the poppy could not deal with. As such, he despises all worms and bugs, particularly Oogie Boogie.
  • Much of Aegon's hedonism can be explained by his background; his father was often busy and he had a Missing Mom, so his lust could be part of a coping mechanism. It's possible that with women he was looking for a mother's comfort. Sigmund Freud is trying to study it, but otherwise they do not get along.
  • Was nothing short of elated to learn of the House of Dragons, and became interested in Smaug's riches. Smaug seems to tolerate him, mainly to use the king as an Unwitting Pawn and giving away valuables to him for maidens. He also approves of Kinzo Ushiromiya's crazy wills, and actually agrees with the insane logic that Billy has.
  • While officially the ancestor to all the pantheon's Targaryens(sans Aegon the Conqueror and his sister-wives), he insists that Daeron the Good is not his but rather from an affair between his sister-wife Naerys and his brother, Aemon the Dragonknight. Rather unlikely, given their own virtuous nature and he likely started it to disown his competent son. Aegon would argue that if the pious Lancelot and Elaine can break their vows and father Galahad, so could Aemon. He then decided to blame Lancelot and attack him in some vain, stupid way to get back at his brother.
  • Stannis hates the fact he is descended from Aegon, and steers clear of his ancestor.

     Billy 
Billy, God of Negative Intelligence
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/billybillyandmandy_3740.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His face with a red hat
  • Alignment: Chaotic Stupid (Chaotic Neutral at best)
  • Portfolio: -5 IQ yet occasionally aware of flaws in logic, being a blissful idiot, Cheerful Child, Fearing clowns, spiders, and the mailman, Large bulbous nose
  • Domains: Stupidity, Joy, Wisdom
  • Allies: Mandy, Lord Byron
  • Enemies: Needles Kane, Sideshow Bob, Thor, The Joker, Kefka
  • Opposes: Archane
  • Opposed by Yog-Sogoth
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Kids Next Door
  • His ascension was due to scoring a negative 5 on a test. For comparison, a shovel and two candy bracelets each scored a positive 17 on the same test.
  • Is not allow near Discord or any other gods of chaos due to driving Eris insane.
  • He once stole Mljonir and took over Asgard. This has earned him the enmity of Thor.
  • He does not like clowns.
    "The clowns are nothing but the ultimate evil. They want to be the dominant species on the planet and they'll destroy us all to make it happen. Destroy Us All! Destroy Us All! Destroy Us All!…"
    • And then he met The Joker.
    • Even if Sideshow Bob was a former clown and hates being reminded of it, Billy still doesn't like him just because of the fact that Bob is an ex-clown.
  • He has been banned from cooking in the House of Food due to an incident involving brownies and a zombie apocalypse.
  • Yog-Sogoth does not allow Billy to enter its temple, possibly due to a failed summoning.
  • He avoids the House of Beast due to his fear of spiders.
  • Several of the Nickelodeon gods have noticed that he sounds similar to Zim.
  • Once had Lord Byron as a spirit adviser due to exposure to ectoplasm. Billy is looking to continue his lessons in being cool.
  • Is somewhat at odds with the Kid Next Door due to Mandy temporarily taking over.
  • His opinion about Bleedman is currently unknown.

     Cirno 
Cirno, Goddess of Idiots (Baka, Nine-ball)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/th123cirno_9764.png
  • Lesser Deity, despite her claims of being "the strongest!"
  • Theme Music: Beloved Tomboyish Girl
  • Symbol: A figure 9 in a circle
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Ice Fairies, Ditziness (or sometimes complete idiocy), Boasting, Coming back alive everytime she's killed, Butt-Monkey, but Took a Level in Badass, Pint-Sized Powerhouse
  • Domains: Ice, Magic, Stupidity
  • Allies: Ralph Wiggum, Tinkerbell, Dan Hibiki, Utsuho Reiuji.
  • Rivals: Yugi Muto
  • Opposes: Suwako Moriya, Greninja, Kermit the Frog
  • Enemies: Tyrantrum.
  • Ascended to a Lesser Deity rank after starring in her very own game and even managing to give trouble to Marisa Kirisame, Goddess of Black Magic, in a duel.
    • Where Marisa did say that she was holding back, she also admitted that Cirno was more challenging that she thought. No one is sure how much Cirno would fare against Marisa normally, as the next time they met she got fried by Marisa's possessed Mini-Hakkero, which gave her an extra edge.
    • Other Cirno's feats include being able to survive attacks from Utsuho inside her temple what would have made her melt and take down Alice and the prototype of her Goliath Doll.
    • In fact, as Cirno can abuse her Resurrective Immortality to come back as long as she's properly motivated (not even the dreaded PC can keep her dead) and her massive ice powers to shield herself, she could indeed be an extremely dangerous foe (as a certain schoolgirl could possibly murder an entire school full of people with her powers). Fortunately for everyone, she's very easily distracted and rarely can muster enough interest to challenge anyone with such intensity.
  • Likes to share her "wisdom" in her 'Perfect Math Class'. Smarter members of the Pantheons join in just to laugh at her theories. That, or not even the smartest gods have figured out she thinks in base nine.
    • An alternate interpretation is that the perfect math class is not a math class at all, but a sarcastic and witty philosophical lesson teaching us that maths are not the most important in life. But Cirno probably can't count anyway.
  • Rumor goes Cirno is in fact one of the most intelligent gods in the Pantheon, pretending to be stupid in order to achieve some complicated master plan (perhaps taking over some greater god's position?) It has also been speculated said plan would be put into action on 09/09/09, or Cirno Day. This has been proven false. Whether this means she is really an idiot or whether the plan is simply not yet ready to be put into action remains unclear. The new rumor goes that the plan will be ready by 09/09/2099.
    • The alternative theory, that the Cirno Day plan was successful, but was such a subtle plot of sublime beauty that it operated on a level beyond everyone's comprehension, is patently ridiculous.
  • Good friends with Utsuho, due to similar mentalities.
  • Not to be confused with that other Nineball, whose pilot is most certainly not an idiot.
  • Was the Number One Enemy of the previous God of Batracians, Wart. However, once he was replaced with Greninja, things got harder for her, as Greninja is too fast for her to hit and naturally resists ice, which baffles Cirno. Currently, she's trying to teach herself Freeze Dry to deal with him.
  • Has sparked a rivalry with Yugi after hearing of his ability to draw a five from his deck without any error. She has used her nine to combat him in these games of luck.

Demigods

    Lieutenant Columbo 
Lieutenant Columbo, God of Obfuscating Stupidity and Exiting One-Liners
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/colombo_falk_1129.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A rumpled beige trenchcoat, cigar and faded green Peugeot 203 convertible.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Investigators Who Are Much, Much Smarter than They Appear, Finding the One Loose Thread in a Well Thought-Out Lie And Slowly Unravelling It, Getting Wrongdoers to Trip Themselves Up.
  • Domains: Law, Knowledge, Good, Trickery
  • Followers: Vila Restal, Robert Goren, John Steed, Brenda Johnson
  • Allies: Patrick Jane, The Doctor, Perry Mason, Miss Marple, Judge Dredd, Shawn Spencer, Leroy Jethro Gibbs, Inspector G. Lestrade, John Crichton
  • Enemies: Manfred von Karma, Professor Moriarty, Jack the Ripper, Hannibal Lecter Revolver Ocelot, David Xanatos, Norma Desmond
  • Teech-Clenched Teamwork: Dirty Harry, Travis Bickle
  • Don't let the antics of this police detective fool you. Many gods and mortals thought they had nothing to worry about, only realizing too late that he already has them trapped. Columbo has proven to be an invaluable asset in the House of Justice.
  • If someone has been unlawfully accused of a crime, he turns to the services of defense attorney Perry Mason. Together, they form a formidable team few bad guys are capable of stopping.
  • Many younger deities have used his playbook in order to trip up their foes. Patrick Jane is among his most famous pupils before ascending himself.
    • While she ascended later than him, Miss Marple may well be the only deity that has been using the playbook longer than him! Nevertheless, the two respect each other immensely. Miss Marple is not bound by the rules of the law and can her her hands dirty where he cannot.
    • While there may not be many as famous as him, there's another who even he can't figure out if he's faking. Phony Psychic Shawn Spencer out does him in terms of playing the Genius Ditz (mainly the ditz part). It doesn't help that Shawn implies that he is indeed a psychic. He remains impressed with his detective skills and helps him out whenever he needs it.
    • Another pupil of his is Gibbs, God of Making Criminals Sweat. While Perry Mason originated the technical and Columbo mastered it, it was Gibbs who made it an art form. He helped grant Gibbs his divine powers soon after. He's also tried to convince Gibbs to give Tony some slack, to little effect.
  • While not in the House of Justice, he frequently resides there to help the gods there interrogate criminals. Dredd placed Lestrade in charge of dealing with Columbo's inquiries. Well known for helping Holmes as well as a number of other detectives in the Pantheon, he tries his best to decipher what the lieutenant is trying to do.
  • If there is one person capable of thwarting his investigations, it's Manfred von Karma. The Amoral Attorney has proven to be an effective prosecutor, sending many of the innocent in jail. He also seems to be one of the few who are not fazed with his clumsy nature.
  • Revolver Ocelot has also proven to be an counter for the villains. Even shutting down his operations turned out to be a part of a greater scheme of his. It was revealed to be due to a truce with Xanatos. While usually rivals, the two saw the potential threat of the lieutenant and decided to work together to put him out of their hairs.
  • Is currently in the process of training his followers against the counterattacks of Hannibal Lecture. Many have fallen to his sharp tongue, capable of driving men to suicide. Columbo himself is cautious against the man, as Hannibal isn't as easily swayed by his demands.
  • Moriarty proposed a document specifically warning his followers of the antics of Columbo, lest they too underestimate him. He hired Tarquinn to add an section of his minions book just to warn them of the man. Truly the bane of evil masterminds.
  • The same goes to Jack the Ripper, who saw many of his kind fall for similar tricks.He hopes to add the lieutenant to the latest list of his victims.
  • Resident vigilante cop Dirty Harry doesn't usually have the patience for the lieutenant's methods, even when they work most of the time. As such, he only helps out in capturing suspects when Columbo thinks he can trick them into confessing.
  • Tasked himself to keep watch over Norma Desmond. After her first Villainous Breakdown, he suspects she would snap again at any time. Despite her objections to keeping her watch, he genuinely wants her to reform and kickstart her career. He even drops his act to try and look more sincere to her. Norma doesn't think she needs it, believing she just needs to expose herself more to the audience.
  • While he thinks Travis' actions were noble in theory, he doesn't approve of assassination without the due process of law. Any situation that these two work together will be strained at best.

    Curious George 
George, God of Curiosity (Curious George)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9d42a7f581d4b54aa26f1657e6defcb1.jpg
  • Demigod (Lesser God when tagging along with The Man with the Yellow Hat)
  • Symbol: The words "Curious George" written in a yellow and red font. Alternatively, a pair of binoculars in a yellow background.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good. VERY Chaotic. (Though some believe he eventually mellowed out into a borderline still ever-curious Neutral Good)
  • Portfolio: Really Curious Monkeys, Cheerful Baby Monkey... Maybe a little too much, Naïvety, Having Art Shift Imagine Spots, Being Allowed to Wander around by Himself By The Man with the Yellow Hat, Quickly Messing up Everything But somehow Escaping from Troubles
  • Domains: Curiosity, Mammals, Innocence, Childhood, The Color Yellow, Edutainment Shows
  • Herald: The Man In The Yellow Hat
  • Followers: Yokoi, Beastbox, Bode, Pandora, The Curiosity Core
  • Allies: Almost all of the non-Evil aligned Children Gods (But especially Ash Ketchum and The Cutie Mark Crusaders), Taokaka, Pinkie Pie, Byakuya Kuchiki, Eru Chitanda, DeeDee
  • Opposes: Any god with Nazi sentiments (Surprisingly enough)
  • Nobody actually understands how George actually got into the Pantheon. He simply wandered into the various Houses, exploring every single place he managed to get into, wreaking havoc all over the place until he was told to stop. Instant Godhood.
    • Dee Dee, who requested the position first, was rejected because a) She would mess around the House of Technology and maybe even destroy it and b) George is a literal Curious Monkey anyways. But she was allowed to stay as his High Priestess until she was given a title of her own.
    • Inmediately after George's ascension, The Man with the Yellow Hat apologised for any mess George provoked while he wasn't around. He was allowed to stay as long as he kept taking care of the mischievous monkey.
  • To the displeasure of everyone, his temple was placed in the House of Knowledge. On his part, he was happy to be there. He quickly started reading the books from the Children Section of the Library with the Man with the Yellow Hat.
  • Once, George went to the House of Commerce and stole Ash Ketchum's hat. He gave it back after a while and quickly became friends with him. The Man with the Yellow Hat has Ash on speed dial after that incident in case he needs help taking care of George in parts of the pantheon he cannot reach as a non-combatant non-deity. He is actually grateful to find someone who can understand George as well as he can.
  • George loves playing with people as cheerful as he is and for that reason he has become friends with most of the more energetic gods and the younger gods.
    • Pinkie Pie, for example, became one of his first friends inmediately after the Welcome Party she threw for him. It helps that, unlike many other gods who dread those parties, he actually enjoyed himself. And she's volunteered to babysit George despite having a rocky start the first time around. But after she had a crying fit (not deliberate, honest!), George took pity in Pinkie and started behaving a little more.
    • He also loves playing with the Cutie Mark Crusaders, specially when he feels like taking a new job. The fillies also like joining in his curiosity-driven adventures.
    • Due to George's many trips to the House of Family to play with the younger gods, The Man with the Yellow Hat soon requested for someone to help him supervise the energetic monkey. Byakuya soon took the job. This was quite unexpected for the rest of the members of the House of Family, but not to his fellow Bleach Gods. Byakuya's Zanpakuto Senbonzakura and even Byakuya actually happen to understand the baby monkey's childish curiosity.
  • All of the Gods were surprised to find out that George was against the Nazi Gods. According to an unknown source, it all started with a trip he made to Paris…
    • Eru Chitanda was later confirmed to be the unknown source.
  • The most sane Gods dreaded the day Eru Chitanda and George would meet each other, since they didn't know and did NOT want to know what would happened if the Constantly Curious goddess and the More Curious God joined forces. To their surprise, Eru and George already met each other, as soon as she heard the news of a fellow curious god, she inmediately went to his temple to greet him. Many questions to George and his owner later, she was the first to find out about his trip to Paris.
    • Eru also happens to be quite good at managing the monkey, putting his curiosity to good purposes such as looking for the clues of mysteries. She also likes his enthuasiasm, that reminded her of Satoshi. She has decided George should be her Non-Human Sidekick. Oreki's response to all of this is obvious

  • Henry Walton Jones Jr. may look like a lowly professor who part-times as an archeologist, but don't let his profession fool you. He has overcome insurmountable odds through various countries around the world. His entry into the Pantheon increased his scope to include multiple worlds. All of this wouldn't be possible without his incredible ability to go through situations without any plan to help him.
  • Is not just the Patron Saint of adventures. Millions of people from all sorts of sports depend on him in all sorts of situations. When a relative newbee is able to pull off an upset, they usually turn to him for thanks.
  • Is determined to have nothing to do with either Orochimaru or Voldemort, due to a pathological fear of snakes. Apophis' recently ascension did not help as the Egyptian deity has proven to be every bit as sinister as he imagines snakes to be.
  • Never forgets his hat. Hell, don't even try to ruin his hat. There is no plan in the world that could ever save you from his wrath.
  • He's also hoping to find an opportunity to pay back Chuck Norris for that bone shattering kick. Some wondered if he could have survived such a blow (most don't).
  • Would rather that his fanbase would put his later movie behind them. Despite the good reviews, fans did not like the direction his creators went with him. There is hope that the next movie coming up will patch up his fractured base.
  • There is some overlap between the archeologist and John McClane. Both have an uncanny ability to ruin even the best laid out plans. That combined with Indy's insistence of going with the flow makes it nearly impossible for any villain to put a stop to their followers.
  • You would not think that he would be at home among the Library's shelves, but between the giant bookworms and lumbering thesauri, there is plenty of adventure to be had. Somewhere, the Holy Grail sits forgotten on a shelf, and some day, Indy will find it. Besides, 70% of archaeology is done in the library anyway.
  • Is in an eternal battle with Lara Croft and Nathan Drake over hidden artifacts. He initially held a more antagonistic relationship, berating them for keeping loot to themselves rather than to the public. But he has grown to depend on them for bigger discoveries over time. Nowadays you are more likely to see them work together than against each other. It's only a question of who keeps the prize. Indy admits both rivals can easily kick his ass, but he makes up for it with his insane luck.
    • They have often brought along their own enemies to deal with. Zoran offered to off Nathan Drake after the bald villain's ascension, but he refused. Indy later helped Croft break the blockage Zoran developed over Drake's temple. He has had to fend off against his forces ever since.
    • A lesser known rivalry has formed between him and Oerba Yun Fang. Things can still get heated if the prize is expensive enough.
  • Scoundrel aside, he gets along fairly well with Han Solo. And not just because they look alike. Solo depends on Indy for applying some of his strategies for escaping. In return, the smuggler gives Indy clues on the next find.
    • Much like Han, Malcolm loves to think on his feet, thanking the archeologist multiple times for making those close shaves. With that said, not robbing his items seemed like a good enough way to return the favor.
  • In some other life, it is rumored that he was a great smuggler who fell in love with a rebel princess. He's not all that sure himself. Part of the reason he rarely leaves the shelves is because Jabba the Hutt has something against Indy, and wants to talk to him. Indy says "He's a wonderful human being, but I'll pass." Jabba has been banned from this House since that incident with the gravy-d pages, so he never shows up here.
  • Has aided Ash Williams in keeping the Necronomicon safe from dark forces. This is probably one of the few things he doesn't want in a museum. Is currently negotiating placing it in the Treasures section.
  • It should be noted that Indiana Jones HATES Nazis, more than most deities in the Pantheon. Few groups have been more of a pain in the ass to deal with. They all adhere to the Red Skull, who has become increasingly frustrated with Indy's efforts to thwart his acquisition of powerful artifacts.
    • Impressed with his handling with Nazis in Casablanca, he struck a friendship with Rick Blaine. It's never too late to denounce them in his book.
    • Some of his greatest friendships with punching nazis have been with Cap and Hellboy, the former for thwarting his archnemesis and the later for occasionally helping him out navigating certain temples.
    • Communists are low on his likable list ever since his latest adventure. Nikita Dragovich has taken a different approach. Brainwashing the archeologist for his bidding could make him a valuable asset.
    • It should be noted that Indy is not amused with the portrayal of Adenoid Hynkel. He doesn't believe in normalizing dictators' behaviors.
  • Was the hallmark of the following philosophy: "If you see an idiot displaying his swordplay and itching for a fight, just grab a gun and shoot him."
  • Looked in interest at how The Cinema Snob dressed as him during the hunt for Malachite's hand, especially at how Snob could only fight with a belt, instead of the trademark whip.
  • There is a so-far unfounded rumor that he, Samurai Jack, and the Mane Six embarked on an adventure together. Indy is saying nothing on the matter.
  • Is recently seen drinking beer and playing pool with one Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, who also courageously stormed an underground warren and single-handedly destroyed an army (in her case, of monsters) to protect children.

  • It was only a few years ago that John Crichton was a mere astronaut studying the nature of wormholes. It was only when he fell into one that he started his journey into greatness. Finding a crew crazy enough to follow him, he has amassed a stunning amount of accolades in the new world he made a home of. And it was enough for the God of Space to officially give him a spot in the Pantheon. He later thanked Kirk for the invitation.
  • The Doctor doesn't seem to mind. He was fascinated at the human's work on wormholes. He was also intrigued how well Crichton was able to be clued in on his ideas. A spot as a companion could have happened if Crichton didn't have a crew to take care of.
  • Proved to be one of Columbo's most gifted students in the art of Obfuscating Stupidity. Many don't even know that he's a scientist until they enter his temple. Some say even Columbo doesn't know, only letting him in to find out the truth.
  • His temple contains many memorabilia from Earth. While he remains fond of the planet and is willing to protect it, he has long since rejected it as his home.
  • As stated before, most of his crew are just as crazy as he is, only sticking around because he seems to be the only one in their galaxy that knows what he's doing. He is most fond of Aeryn, who he learned how to fight and use weapons. It didn't take long before they became a Battle Couple. With that said, threaten Aeryn's life at your own peril. Crichton is guaranteed to make your life a living hell for doing so.
  • As a fellow pilot, Malcolm Reynolds respects the astronaut for managing such a raucous crew. They have a blast teaming up whenever the time requires it. As a friend, he thinks Crichton is batshit insane. He has no love for the military, but to use that to create a wormhole is insane even for him.
  • His arrival is another blow for evil-aligned aliens everywhere. He may not like Earth in its current state, but he won't let it fall to invaders. Many have been struggling to counter his ability to deliver flummoxing schemes to come out on top. His archnemesis calls it a 'brutal elegance' that makes him so unpredictable.
  • His ability to make things up as he goes has impressed Indiana Jones. He even hitched a ride on their ship in search of an ancient artifact. It was pretty obvious that there was no stopping those two from getting it. In the end, Indy took some articles on Crichton's wormhole theory to take a look for himself.
  • Long has Xander hoped to find a Pop-Cultured Badass, one who could deliver beatdowns as well as deliver quips. He has finally found one in John Crichton. Expect a lot of pop culture references whenever these two meet, and they make sure to meet often. All while the rest of the Scoobies and the crew of the Moya roll their eyes. The two hope to find someone who could represent people like them in the Pantheon.
  • And to think that their story was close to going unresolved. It was only a constant demand from fans that saved the show and their lives from cancellation and death respectively, giving the crew a reasonable conclusion.. They give Leon alms givings as a result.
  • Is a big fan of Samantha Carter's work, even when she keeps insisting it wasn't a big deal. Luckily, he is just as interested in her work as a scientist. She proved to be just as interested in his theory of wormholes. Both crew are wary of keeping those two together for too long, lest they end up sprawled on the ground after staying up the night.
  • He may as well have a life-time membership with Jean Grey's temple with the amount of times it appeared he died on his show, including the first time his show got cancelled. It's safe to say that he's a difficult man to keep dead.
