Pantheon: Music Demigods And Quasideities
Archie "Snake" Simpson, Joey Jeremiah, and Derek "Wheels" Wheeler, Gods of Former Garage Band Members (Zit Remedy, The Zits)

Courtney Gears, Infernal Diva
  • Theme Song: "Death to Squishies" (Boss Battle Ver.)
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Obani Draco, her base.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Respective Idol Fembot known for more than her singing, pretending to be an ally, high mercenary of Dr. Nefarious, has a catchy Villain Song, supports genocide of organic life forms, has dancer mooks, battles while dancing and spinning, experiments on organic life forms, gets away with her crimes due to popularity, only dating Reactor for his money
  • Domains: Music, Propaganda, Genocide, Gold Digger.
  • Allies: Dr. Nefarious, Gleeman Vox, most of the Disney Villains (especially Lady Tremaine, Queen Grimhilde, and Ursula), Penelope Mouse, Master Xehanort, I-No, all villainous robot or program gods in the pantheon.
  • Enemies: Ratchet, Clank, Balthier, Aqua, Cinderella, Yuna, Hades, Kevin Flynn, Jak, Daxter, Tron, Rise Kujikawa, Hatsune Miku, Hibiki Houjou, Kanade Minamino, Hibiki Tachibana, Tsubasa Kazanari, Chris Yukine
  • Rivals: Constable Neyla
  • Followers: Yunalesca
  • Has recently done a new video that demands that robots try to help her ascend into the pantheon. It worked.
  • Her alliance with Dr. Nefarious, a well known mad scientist, would've gained her a lot of enemies had it not been for her mind-controlling music and her looks. However, Balthier isn't fooled because of his own father, Dr. Cid, who's also a mad scientist (or so he believes).
  • Her alliances with several Disney Villains has made her an unofficial member of their group. In fact, she is the only non-Disney god who may actually qualify a spot, and she's doing her very best to join the ranks.
    • Despite having access to the Heartless, Gears mainly relies on the Unversed to fight any intruders. The Symphony Master seems to be her signature Unversed, though she's also been shown to use the Cursed Coach every now and then.
      • However, Gears does not get along with Hades. This could be due to the latter burning her to prevent her from killing Cinderella.
  • It's said that Clu is trying to ally himself with Gears because of her music, as he really wants to take control of all the robot and program gods in the hopes of "perfecting" the pantheon. This has gotten into Tron's nerves, as he knew that such an alliance would be very devastating.
    • However, after Gears decided to ally herself with the Darkness Proxy and capture the Princesses of Heart for them, Clu became outraged and ended their alliance. Gears didn't let this bother her, and decided to ally with the Master Control Program instead, as he reminds her of Dr. Nefarious.
  • Gears' relationship with other musicians in the Music house is quite disturbing. I-No is trying to befriend her, while Hatsune Miku considers her to be a "wicked witch". Of course, Gears sees them as mainly competition and would only act kindly towards the evil musicians, especially the robot ones.
    • And then there's the fact that her use of music for evil automatically makes her as much of a Shadow Archetype to Rise Kujikawa as the latter's actual Shadow
  • Her alliance with Cinderella's evil stepfamily (especially Tremaine (her daughters at that time included)) happened to bring devastation to both Blackwater City and the Castle of Dreams, requiring the team-up between Ratchet, Clank, and Aqua. Although all four of them were supposedly burned by Hades, they somehow still managed to survive and continue to terrorize the pantheon... until see below.
  • Her pop music and brainwashing has irritated Yuna, herself a pop singer while wearing Lenne's outfit to the point of rivalry.
  • Implied to be a Gold Digger, since she once dated Reactor, but wanted nothing to do with him until he became an Exterminator. Considering her alliances with genocidal villains, it's likely she just wants to take his money to help fund their plots.
  • After successfully getting the Tremaine family and Penelope ascended, Gears is trying to ascend Dr. Nefarious into the pantheon, despite the vocal objections of her enemies, especially Balthier.
    • Unfortunately, through Cinderella's own interruption, Courtney was down to just Lady Tremaine amongst the latter's family as her helper. That means... less bullying allies. The two villainesses are now working together, along with Queen Grimhilde and Ursula, to overthrow Maleficent and take her place as the "leader of the Disney Villains", only because of evidence that she's not really "evil".
  • Gears seems to be a Foil to Constable Neyla, in which they are both hot females who turn out to be evil mid-way through their debut games. In the pantheon, they also have a strong alliance with a Disney Villainess (Lady Tremaine and Maleficent, respectively) and are able to control a certain dark creature (Unversed and Heartless, respectively). Their goals also contrast each other, with Gears wanting to use the darkness to take over the pantheon, and Neyla wanting to use it to fuel the pantheon with hatred so she can remain immortal.

Giselle, Goddess of the Crowd Songs and Backup Dancers
Click to see her Andalasian form. 
  • Leitmotif: "That's How You Know"

  • Ascended at the Gates of the Pantheon, causing the whole House of Music to play her leitmotif and other gods to come into spontaneous choreography. Made her temple by singing a song that caused all animals to come help out...even the non-cute ones.
  • Hangs out with Snow White, Cinderella and Aurora in the House of Royalty where they have their animal friends help clean up. The other three princesses have gotten used to the cockroaches, rats and flies that Giselle brought with her.
  • The Music Meister sees her as his rival, seeing as she can make people go into a huge Crowd Song at her leisure. Giselle argues back that she doesn't do it out of any evil, compared to him.
  • Master Xehanort is looking at her to see whether or not she can be used as a replacement Princess of Heart. Giselle has no response to this.
  • Loves going to the House of Craft to sew dresses. Many Gods have complained when they wake up in the morning to find their bedsheets and curtains with giant dress-sized holes in them, though.

  • That three eyed blue mask man guy thing is actually a deity of another spiritual side of the world he connects to using LSD and pot.
  • While most of his music is made using good ol' fashion synths and studio magic, often times his music is actually made by recording the sounds of his journeys to the spiritual world.
  • He knows a bit too much of the spiritual world that we do not and that's why many anti-drug activists try to keep him down, so that we stay ignorant forever.
  • His main goal in life is to help us all ascend to the spiritual world with the help of his music and lots of pot.
  • He's never had a bad trip due to the fact that he's befriended many of the higher-ups in the spiritual world during his trips.
  • He's surprisingly popular in Japan, despite the fact the Japanese are one of the most anti-drug people on earth.
  • Despite the fact many of his songs were made on drugs, his live performances are always done sober due to the complexity of his music and machinery used.

Animal, God Of Drummers

  • Believe that everyone should "Be excellent to each other" and "Party on dudes".
  • Are on especially good terms with the Equestrian goddesses because of what they will one day do. Twilight Sparkle has acquired a future copy of one of their albums and found Wyld Stallyns music has a similar affect to their own elements of harmony.
  • Do not be fooled by their laidback attitudes; they know about time travel and are not afraid to show what they can do.
  • The two are exceptionally good friends with historical figures like: Abraham Lincoln, Napoleon, Billy the Kid, Socrates, Joan of Arc, etc. They even came to help Bill and Ted on a history report!
  • Whenever Halloween comes close, the two head off to prepare for a Halloween Adventure. Their shows are hilarious and the revenue helps prepare a kickstart for an upcoming tour.
  • Ted doesn't understand why the heck Neo sounds oddly familiar. It's probably for the best though (as Neo would like it that the Gods don't make remarks on their voices).
  • The two met up with Paul London and Brian Kendrick, who dressed up as them and called themselves "Brian D. Kendrick and Paul 'Paul' London". The four hit it off pretty well, with Paul and Brian allowed to go on adventures with the two, and Bill and Ted learning to play their entrance theme (which they think is "Excellent!") so they can one day perform at Wrestlemania.

  • Rivals: none at the moment
  • A lot of gods don't want them to make contact with the conclave of ZUN, Yuki Kajiura, Yoko Kanno, and Nobuo Uematsu. They have fears that such a music will make reality implode.

  • Jigglypuff can captivate a person with its huge round eyes so that it can sing a song which will put them into sleep. This particular Jigglypuff really hates that every one falls into sleep when it sings, causing it to sketch all over their faces with a marker for revenge.
  • Fans are convinced that Jigglypuff would have the #1 single in every country in the world if her songs utilized mind control rather than putting the judges to sleep.
  • Many are surprised that Jigglypuff was even able to ascend, but she was popular enough in her own country, that she could. This also allowed her to compete in the Super Smash Brothers tournaments from the very beginning.
    • Some of the gods are flabbergasted that a sleep attack is her most powerful attack ever.
  • Witness, as one of Jigglypuff's followers attempts to compete on American Idol
  • Mortal comic artist Matthew Taranto has noticeably shipped Jigglypuff with Kirby. There has been no confirmation or denial.

  • Opposes: They oppose Merzbow and his music, but he doesn't even bother to acknowledge them
  • The legacy of Christian music was passed onto the group by Carmen, the previous God of Christian Music, who vouched for them within the then dying industry.
  • The group single handedly saved the dying industry and proceeded to do the impossible: make Christian music that was enjoyable, and that crossed into the mainstream in a way never done before.
  • They literally set the standard for Christian music, pushing others in the industry to stop making terrible music in the name of the genre just because it had a Christian theme.
  • Did not create but coined the term 'Jesus Freaks' as a way of noting their followers and people who were genuinely interested in helping their fellow man, regardless of race, gender, or creed.
  • Post their Supernatural CD, they decided to split up to pursue creative differences, and in doing so impacted the industry even more by taking the reigns of other legendary groups such as the Newsboys and Audio Adrenaline. However, clever ears can still hear them on each other's albums, and they've been known to tour together within their new groups.
  • Whispers have existed for years of a DC Talk reunion tour. No confirmation has been forthcoming.
