'''Narrative, Storytelling and Tropes'''

This house is commissioned by O-Haruhi-sama as a big library where stories are told from everyone's perspectives (including her own).

It connects in the middle with the Houses of Pantheon/{{Magic}} and Pantheon/{{Knowledge}}. Some of their residents used to belong in the [[Pantheon/{{Theater}} House of Theater]] as a result of the separation.

The Book of Trope is localized right here.

'''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya, Goddess of {{Tropes}}''' (The Unstoppable Force, [[FanNickname O-Haruhi-sama]])
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HaruhiSuzumiya.jpg]]
* Theme Music: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_indP8fT494 Hare Hare Yukai]].
* Overdeity
* Symbol: SOS Dan Logo.
* Alignment: ChaoticNeutral[=/=]ChaoticGood
* Portfolio: {{Tropes}}, {{Genki Girl}}s, [[CrystalDragonJesus Being the Girl Goddess]], AliensAndMonsters, {{Academic Athlete}}s, {{Ps|ychicPowers}}ionics, {{Time Travel}}ers, Mutable Hairstyles, {{Defrosting Ice Queen}}s, [[RealityWarper Altering Reality]], ShesGotLegs, [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Abrasive Yet Secretly Kind-Hearted People]], [[BlackComedyRape Black Comedy Molestation]], {{Tsundere}}s, [[KnightInSourArmor Sweet Girls in Sour Uniforms]], [[FriendToAllChildren Friends to all Children]], {{Deconstructed|Trope}} GodMode.
* Domains: Creation, Chaos, Charm, Destruction, Envy, Mentalism, Tyranny, {{Reset|Button}}ting [[StatusQuoIsGod the Status Quo]].
* Followers: [[LightNovel/{{Toradora}} Minori Kushieda]], [[Series/{{Community}} Troy Barnes]].
* Allies:
** The SOS Brigade: [[Pantheon/MainHouse Ky]][[Pantheon/{{Theater}} on, Mikuru]] [[Pantheon/{{Love}} Asahina]], [[Pantheon/{{Technology}} Yuki Nagato]], [[Pantheon/{{Philosophy}} Itsuki Koizumi]].
** Other Allies: [[Pantheon/{{Commerce}} Konata Izumi]], [[Pantheon/{{Personality}} Patricia Martin]], [[Pantheon/{{Leadership}} Miu Kazashiro]], Abed Nadir, Miyuki Hoshizora, [[Pantheon/MainHouse Trope-Tan]] [[Pantheon/{{Mentalism}} The ESP]] [[Pantheon/PhysicalAppearance Research Society]], [[Pantheon/{{Music}} Muse]].
* Extremely Complicated Relationship with: [[Pantheon/MentalismOther The Spy]]
* Enemies: [[Pantheon/{{OtherWeaponTropes}} Yui Ikari]], [[Pantheon/{{Personalities}} Monaca Towa]].
* Much like how the Roman pantheon absorbed those around it, if a fictional group believe in a supreme creator, [[WMG/GrandUnifyingGuesses they're probably thinking about Haruhi]].
* [[OfficialCouple Probably]] [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend Not Kyon's girlfriend]].
* A good friend of Adam Young, much to the dismay of Heaven and Hell.
* Some sects believe Haruhi's position rightfully belongs to Sasaki. But since Sasaki herself does not desire this or any other position in the pantheon, this would be a moot heresy[[note]][[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} *blam*]][[/note]]. Likewise, another [[WildMassGuessing group of schismatics]] believe Kyon is the true God of Tropes. He pretends not to hear them.
* Haruhi always keeps her trusty ResetButton, which has caused StatusQuoIsGod numerous times, such as how [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} Shinji Ikari]]'s moments of happiness [[YankTheDogsChain get]] [[KickTheDog cut short]] from her pressing it.
** That is until an [[MamaBear enrage]] Yui Ikari stormed through the Main House and almost killed her. Even though she didn't succeed, Yui did destroy the Reset Button, freeing her son.
* She is considered to be the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=27&v=8Tc7MH5ZXbg greatest shipmaster]] in the Pantheon. Many gods have been traumatized as a result.
* She is responsible for revealing the Spy inside the Main House and as a result, allowed him to stay but is forced to follow her while doing so.
* She may have a bit of an ego, but deep down she does care about those around her. Unless you're her enemy.
* She is also a member of the Holy Trinity in the Pantheon/MainHouse.

[[folder:Terry Pratchett]]
'''[[Creator/TerryPratchett Terry]] [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Pratchett]], God of Trope Identification[[note]][[FootnoteFever and Footnotes]][[/note]]''' (Pterry, Professor Sir Terence David John Pratchett OBE, [=DLit=], [=DLit=], [=DLit=], [=DLit=], [=DLit=], Blackboard Monitor)
[[quoteright:360:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/terry-pratchett.jpg]]
* Overdeity
* Symbol: Four giant elephants standing atop an extremely giant turtle
* Alignment: Chaotic Good
* Portfolio: [[SubvertedTrope Subversions]], [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructions]], {{Lampshade Hanging}}s, [[JustifiedTrope Justifications]]
* Domains: Creation, Death, Trickery
* Followers: Gilgamesh (''Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh''), Akira Takano (''SchoolRumble''), Othar Tryggvassen, Gentleman Adventurer! (''Webcomic/GirlGenius''), Literature/ThursdayNext
* Rivals: [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Tarquin]] [[UnknownRival thinks he's this]]. He's never really caught on to why Pterry plays with tropes just for the fun in identifying them, not for gaining power and undying fame through controlling them. Tarquin really doesn't get the point of being a Bard ''at all''. Which is one reason it really isn't a rivalry, beyond the massive power difference between them and Pterry not even being bothered in the least by a WrongGenreSavvy BigBadWannabe.
* Created the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality, the principle which ALL fictional realities have to one degree or another.
* Shed his mortal coil in 12 March 2015 so he could dedicate more time to the fabric of narrative[[note]]some sort of greenish-yellow purple gossamer[[/note]] itself. According to the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality, this automatically earned him a promotion to Overdeity[[note]]thus recursively confirming his RealityWarper powers[[/note]].
* As a tribute to Terry Pratchett, [[VideoGame/{{Dota2}} the Radiant and the Dire Ancients]] decided to put their differences aside for a while to create a new artifact with some help from the Discworld. The Octarine Core. From this day forth, heroes of both the Radiant and the Dire sides may build it to show their gratitude for Terry.
* Also has seats on the Pantheon/MainHouse and the House of Pantheon/{{Philosophy}}.

* Lesser God
* Symbol: The [[IronicJuxtaposition "Love"]] kanji in his shirt.
* Alignment: TrueNeutral
* Portfolio: [[KillEmAll Massive Body Count On His Shows]], {{Deconstruction}}s, [[YuriFan Yuri Genre Enthusiasts]], {{Trolling Creator}}s, DarkerAndEdgier {{Cosmic Horror Stor|y}}ies, TrueArtIsAngsty, [[OneOfUs Being One of Us]].
* Domains: Anime and Manga, Character Deaths, Deconstruction.
* Allies: [[Pantheon/MainHouse H. P. Lovecraft]], [[Pantheon/LifeAndDeathDemigodsAndQuasideities Yoshiyuki Tomino]], ShotaroIshinomori.
* Underlings:
** ''LightNovel/SayaNoUta'': [[Pantheon/{{Insanity}} Fuminori Sakisaka]], [[Pantheon/{{LoveOther}} Saya]].
** ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'': [[Pantheon/MainHouse Madoka]] [[Pantheon/{{Magic}} Kaname, Homura]] [[Pantheon/TimeAndSpace Akemi]], [[Pantheon/NarrativeLesserGods Sayaka Miki]], [[Pantheon/{{Food}} Kyoko Sakura]], [[Pantheon/LifeAndDeath Mami Tomoe, Charlotte the Dessert Witch]] and her human form Nagisa Momoe, [[Pantheon/{{Mentalism}} Kyubey]] [[Pantheon/{{Commerce}} and the Incubators]].
** ''Anime/PsychoPass'': [[Pantheon/PhilosophyLesserGods Akane Tsunemori]], [[Pantheon/PhysicalAppearance Shinya Kogami]], [[Pantheon/PhilosophyLesserGods Shogo Makishima]].
** ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'': [[Pantheon/HeroicArchetypes Kouta Kazuraba/Kamen Rider Gaim]], [[Pantheon/AntiHeroes Kaito Kumon/Kamen Rider Baron]], [[Pantheon/HeroesLesserGods Mitsuzane Kureshima/Kamen Rider Ryugen]], [[Pantheon/{{Prophecy}} Mai Takatsukasa]], [[Pantheon/AntiVillains Takatora Kureshima/Kamen Rider Zangetsu (Shin)]], [[Pantheon/NarrativeLesserGods Hideyasu Jonouchi/Kamen Rider Gridon]], [[Pantheon/CombatOther Oren Pierre Alfonzo/Kamen Rider Bravo]], [[Pantheon/HeroicActions Zack/Kamen Rider Knuckle]], [[Pantheon/{{Costumes}} Yoko Minato/Kamen Rider Marika]], [[Pantheon/VillainousArchetypes Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke]], [[Pantheon/{{Flaws}} Lock Dealer Sid/Kamen Rider Sigurd]], [[Pantheon/SpecializedNarratives Kogane/Kamen Rider Mars]].
* Fanboying Towards: [[Pantheon/TechnologyIntermediateGods Kotaro Minami/Kamen Rider Black (RX)]].
* Many Deities are impressed that his involvement on ''Puella Magi Madoka Magica'' is the reason why his underlings ascended to the Pantheon in first place.
* He's impressed that most of the Armored Riders of Zawame joined to the ranks of the Pantheon, which is pretty meaningful, since Urobuchi is a Kamen Rider fan too.
* After the "Great Upheaval" unfolded, Urobuchi was the first one everyone blamed. To everyone's shock, [[{{MisBlamed}} he WASN'T behind it.]]
** In hindsight, of course he wasn't, [[spoiler:[[EveryoneLives there were nowhere near enough deaths in it]].]]
* He used to occupy the throne of Massive Casualties in the [[Pantheon/LifeAndDeath House of Life and Death]], but was swiftly booted from his position following The Great Upheaval: [[spoiler: not only did all five of the main characters survived, he managed to ''resurrect'' a sixth one.]] He was replaced by Yoshiyuki Tomino (the TropeNamer, who was finally compelled to take the job after months of negotiating to keep his damn mecha pilots in line) and reassigned to this position, as his ability to deconstruct genres are second to none.
* Has a Reality Marble known as Dead End Catharsis: Heaven & Hell Drop, which lowers the luck of all characters in his stories by one rank. Urobuchi's ascension to the Pantheon allowed it to affect ''any'' character. Be afraid. Be ''very'' afraid.
* Has learned of the problems caused by both Kureshima brothers, aka "Project: Alternate Gentaro", but has decided to watch everything unfold, trusting that [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall whoever is writing the story]] knows what they are doing. He did feel sympathy for Takatora (who is currently stuck under a MindRape in the asylum), and felt slightly creeped out at what happened to Mitsuzane (his head sliced off and stuffed into his stomach), but knows that the truth will come to light. He just hopes that none of the other Gaim gods get into any more trouble--he's already having enough with the Great Upheaval and Pantheonic Rebellion as it was!
* For the longest time, his and several of his underlings' followers fought over a seemingly endless debate. Eventually, he got tired of it and staked his claim: [[spoiler:[[http://imgur.com/a/vS1Ya "Homura is Best Girl."]]]] While many were happy to hear [[WordOfGod his opinion]], many started to [[FanonDiscontinuity foam at the mouth]] because of what he said.

!Ambiguous Rank

[[folder:Keel Lorenz]]
'''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Keel Lorenz]], God of [[MinorMajorCharacter Important Tertiary Characters]] and Divine Head of the OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness'''
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/icon.200x150.kiel.jpg]]
* Rank: [[EpilepticTrees Uncertain]]
* Symbol: A monolith with SEELE's emblem embedded on it
* Alignment: LawfulEvil (sees himself as LawfulGood)
* Portfolio: [[TheManBehindTheMan The Man Behind SEELE]], [[BigBad Eva's True Antagonist]], [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness Ambiguously Characterized Conspiracies]] [[EpilepticTrees Incredibly Speculative Figures]], [[AssimilationPlot Will Unite Everyone As One Being]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist To End Pain Everywhere]], [[{{Cyborg}} Robotic Attachments]], [[MinorMajorCharacter Minor Major Characters]], [[spoiler:[[TheBadGuyWins Succeeds at Instrumentality]] ([[MindScrew maybe]], [[AndIMustScream maybe not]]) ]]
* Domains: Ambiguity, Conspiracies, Philosophy, Extremism
* Allies: [[Pantheon/{{Sadness}} The White]], [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Lysandre]]
** Former allies: [[spoiler:[[Pantheon/MentalismOther Gendo Ikari]] ]]
** [[UnwittingPawn Unwitting Pawns]]: [[EpilepticTrees God only knows]]
* Enemies: '''[[Pantheon/{{Travel}} AZ]]''', [[Pantheon/MainHouse Lucifer, YHVH, The Emperor of Mankind]], [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} The Chaos Gods]], [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Yuuki Terumi]], [[Pantheon/{{War}} Treize]] [[Pantheon/{{Personality}} Khushrenada]], [[Pantheon/RangedWeapons Okita]]
* Opposed by: The entire Grand United Alliance of Chaos
* Keel Lorenz is a mysterious figure; almost nothing is know of him prior to Second Impact. Some say he is the WanderingJew, waiting all this time to end pain. Others say [[AGodAmI he wants to ascend to godhood.]] He claims that he's [[EvilOldFolks sixty-seven.]] No-one's sure, but it is known he was active before Second Impact and essentially leads his version of Earth since then. Publically, [[BitchInSheepsClothing he leads NERV to "save" humanity from]] [[EldritchAbomination the Angels.]] In reality, he just doesn't want them to mess up [[spoiler:the Human Instrumentality Project]].
* As head of SEELE, ''the'' OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness, Keel Lorenz wants to keep the full extent of his organization's power ambiguous. He will often spin contradictory tales of [[AncientConspiracy its age]] and [[GovernmentConspiracy reach]], all part of a misinformation campaign to eliminate leads. No matter how powerful he is, one thing is certain: ''[[MindScrew no-one]]'' knows
** Keel Lorenz spends most of his time dwelling in the Council of Shadows, which many believe he funded. [[EpilepticTrees Due to mass speculation involving his group]], he has issued a "cease and desist" order from the House of Wild Mass Guessing, for continuing to pester him.
*** Keel Lorenz: "It's been over twenty goddamn years, leave me alone!"
* Keel got along well with [[Pantheon/{{Sadness}} The White]], agreeing that something drastic must be taken to end the misery of humanity. They do disagree on whether they should [[OmnicidalManiac be completely wiped out]] or "merely" [[AssimilationPlot be robbed of independence.]] Their goals are similar enough for them to settle arguments civilly.
** [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Lysandre]] is intrigued by the idea of Instrumentality, seeing it as a good way to solve the Malthusian Dilemna.
** Lorenz detests "parasitic gods" who perpetuate human misery. Part of why he wants to [[AssimilationPlot rob mankind of his identity]] is so that the likes of [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} the Chaos Gods]] or [[Pantheon/{{MainHouse}} YHVH/Lucifer]] can never inflict suffering towards them.
*** [[BerserkButton NEVER compare Keel Lorenz to]] [[Pantheon/{{Faith}} YHVH.]] SEELE wishes to [[EvilutionaryBiologist reach humanity's next step in evolution]], not [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill turn them into the eternal slaves]] [[GodIsEvil of a deific monster.]]
* Desiring to end suffering [[AssimilationPlot in his own way]], Lorenz opposes the likes of [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Yuuki Terumi]], who he believes [[EvenEvilHasStandards gives conspirators a bad name.]] Terumi isn't impressed by this, calling him and his organization "the shittiest bunch of [[GenericDoomsdayVillain generic]] conspiratards ever."
** [[Pantheon/{{Philosophy}} The Emperor of Mankind]] has it out for SEELE, as their [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum "assimilation tantrum"]] as a complete dead end for human progress. Witnessing the world of Warhammer 40000, Keel was ever more convinced.
*** Keel Lorenz: "Tell me oh [[WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice great Man-Emperor]], is my [[spoiler:Instrumentality]] truly worse than [[CrapsackWorld the Imperium's galaxy?]] [[HannibalLecture What's the point of fighting us when]] [[ViciousCycle in the grim darkness of the 41st millennium]], '''[[ForeverWar there will never be peace?!]]'''"
*** That being said, SEELE and the Imperium will have an EnemyMine situation when fighting [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} the Chaos Gods]] or [[Pantheon/MainHouse YHVH/Lucifer]].
* [[Pantheon/{{Travel}} AZ]] ''hates'' Keel Lorenz. He knows what it's like [[WarIsHell to feel utter despair]] and [[HumansAreBastards degradation of humanity]], but after so long refuses to believe [[spoiler:Instrumentality]] is ever the option. No-one should die for the sake of alleviating your own personal pain.
** [[DependingOnTheWriter May be]] the WanderingJew himself. Keel at least likes to pretend he's the WanderingJew, in what's thought to partly be an attempt to remove AZ from the pantheon. So far, it hasn't gotten anywhere.
* Despite being [[BigBad the source of all trouble]] in the NGE-verse, [[MinorMajorCharacter almost no-one even knows he exists.]] [[Pantheon/MentalismOther Gendo]] [[TheHeavy worked as their face]], [[spoiler:at least until he decided [[DragonWithAnAgenda to pursue his own desires]] [[{{Necromantic}} of resurrecting Yui.]] ]]
* Also present in the [[Pantheon/{{Philosophy}} House of Philosophy]].
