Aerith Gainsborough, Goddess of Long-Spoiled Spoilers
, The Flower Girl)
- Symbol: Her hair Ribbon.
- Alignment: Neutral Good
- Portfolio: White Magician Girls, Magically-Inclined Mysterious Women, Martyrdom, Dying, Staves and Pole Weapons, Flower Girls.
- Domain: Spoilers, White Magic, Protection, Light.
- Allies: Cloud, Tifa, and most good-aligned Final Fantasy deities.
- Enemies: Sephiroth, and to a lesser extent, most of the other Warriors of Chaos.
- After her ascension, someone hung a flashing neon sign reading "SHE DIES" over her resting quarters in the Pantheon. It's become a sort of running gag among the more mischievous gods to come up with some sort of humiliating punishment should they come across someone surprised by said sign. Thus far, no victims have been reported.
- It has been said her position came with a book containing knowledge of every spoiler and plot twist in every work of fiction that does, has, or will ever exist. Fortunately for everyone she's kept a close eye on it and is considerate enough to not reveal anything too drastic from its contents. However, she has mixed feelings about her death being listed on the first page.
- She's also present in the House of Knowledge.
Alan Wake, God of Badass Authors
- Symbol: A pen crossed with a revolver.
- Alignment: Lawful Good
- Portfolio: Typewriters, Revolvers, Flashlights, Flare Gun, Genre Savviness.
- Domains: Light, Literature, Knowledge
- Follower: Rick Riordan.
- Allies: Maxwell, Stephen King, J. K. Rowling.
- Shortly after ascension, Alan mysteriously vanished from the face of the earth, unable to be found by any god or goddess. He is believed to have orchestrated this disappearance in some way, although none know how.
Das Mervin and Mrs. Hyde
Das Mervin and Mrs. Hyde, Goddesses of Sporking
(Mervin and Hyde)
- Demigods (Can jump to Intermediate Gods when their Berserk Buttons are pressed)
- Symbol: A pair of crossed red sporks
- Alignment: Neutral Good (both)
- Portfolio: Both: Fangirls, Accentuate the Negative, Wall of Text, Angst Nuke, Deadpan Snarker, Beware the Nice Ones
- Allies: The Protectors of The Plot Continuum, Sam and Dean Winchester, most of the Gods from Harry Potter
- Enemies: Every single Disgrace, but especially Edward Cullen and Bella Swan
- Ascended after spending six years reading and sporking the Twilight series, which provided the Court of the Gods with over 4,000 pages of evidence for why almost every single Twilight character deserved to stay in the Disgraces for all eternity.
- Don't push either of their Berserk Buttons, unless you want to be blown up by a nuclear bomb or be ripped to bits by an angry Eldritch Abomination named Paul. (said list of buttons include Protagonist-Centered Morality, Domestic Abuse, bad research, faulty science, pedophilia, etc...). This has been included on the list of ways to quickly get yourself killed.
- Mrs. Hyde exists and is not a split personality of Mervin. She's occasionally seen in their house.
- Occasionally, several members of the Pantheon have tried on their Meyer Goggles, which allows them to see the world from the perspective of the Twilight characters' superior. They caused most of the Pantheon to either disappear or turn into blobs.
Rod Serling/R.L Stine/The Cryptkeeper
Rod Serling, The Crypt Keeper, and RL Stine, Gods of Hosting Horror Anthologies
- Leitmotif: "Twilight Zone opening" (Rod Serling), "Tales from the Crypt intro" (The Crypt Keeper), "Goosebumps intro" (R.L. Stine)
- Demigods (RL Stine is more of a Lesser God for having more diverse works and if Rod Serling tapped into the true potential of the Twilight Zone he borders on as Intermediate God)
- Symbol: A starry nebula with the words "Twilight Zone" (Rod Serling), A cobweb covered chair (The Crypt Keeper), and Slappy the Dummy (R.L Stine)
- Alignment: Neutral Good (Rod Serling), Chaotic Good (R.L Stine) and Chaotic Neutral (The Crypt Keeper)
- Portfolio: hosting horror shows, telling collections of stories (some of them for kids) (R.L. Stine), unexpected endings (that may be cruel, happy, have the protagonist learn a horrifying truth, have karma get characters in the end, have everything start all over again, the protagonist or characters dead, the enemy winning but most of the time mandatory), teaching lessons to people (Rod Serling), making "ghoul" puns (The Crypt Keeper).
- Domains: Horror, Stories, Aesops, Unexpected Endings.
- Allies: HP Lovecraft, Voltaire, Uncle Howee (for RL Stine).
- High Priest: The Midnight Society.
- There was a bit of a debate for these three gods as they all had their own tales of horror that gave them a right to obtain godhood. After a debate by the powers that be, it was decided that all three would each share the title. Seeing as the three all had their own stories to tell—and could probably learn more from each other on their own breed of story telling, the three agreed.
- Each of the gods have their own stories to tell for whomever wants to listen to them. Traversing through their temple, however, is a bit difficult due to Rod Serling's temple unexpectedly leading people into the Twilight Zone as it were. It should be noted in that Rod Serling does not have control of the Twilight Zone; he only tells the stories in relation to them.
- R.L Stine has warned many of the child gods who read his works to beware... they're in for a scare!
- Miyuki Hoshizora has read many of their works and is slightly angry that the majority of them don't have happy endings. The three have pointed out that Horror stories aren't supposed to be happy to begin with. However, she is thankful and relieved for the ones that actually do have happy endings.
- The Cutie Mark Crusaders once came by here to have a story help them gain their Cutie Marks. Instead, the three gods weaved a story so horrifying that the had nightmares for weeks. Thankfully Princess Luna was there to approach them in their dreams and help them face the horrors that came from the stories.
- Nicholas St. North was said to weep tears of joy when he saw the episode of The Twilight Zone called "Night of the Meek", thanking Serling for making such a beautiful tale about Christmas.
- Many gods in the House of Technology worked together to create an arcade pinball machine that replicates the tales and eeriness of Rod Serling's anthology. It's a huge hit and now is located in the House of Gaming.
- He also has a ride known as the "Tower of Terror" where visitors get to reenact the story of how a family of five died after lightning struck the elevator that was taking them to the thirteenth floor. Again, this is also a huge hit.
- The three are very popular with many of the darker gods in the pantheon for their horrible stories (and also because many of them don't have happy endings, but Rod Serling stories do have good endings). Alice, alongside Hansel and Gretel have them read as bedtime stories.
- Jack Skellington has asked them for new material for his Halloween performances and has a collection of their stories in his Temple for a bit of light reading.
- The Crypt Keeper has become very annoyed with one Artix von Krieger who can't control that paladin impulse to smite the undead. For this, the Crypt Keeper has started to buy lots of pink things to make Artix turn the other direction.
- The Crypt Keeper can be a pretty nice guy when he's not making stories to scare the shit out of people. In fact, Arnold Schwarzenegger actually helped host a tale with the Crypt Keeper...while training the Crypt Keeper with heavy weights.
- RL Stine was happy to find one of his creations, Uncle Howee, in the Pantheon. Rod Serling was mixed as there was An Aesop regarding television as a teaching aid (but also agreed that the main character got what was coming to him), and Crypt Keeper laughs at the craziness of the titular Uncle Howee.
- The three have learned of the "Friendship Asylum", and all of them—for some odd reason—are completely immune to the asylum's effects. They have decided to chronicle the events of the Asylum as best as they can, being invisible observers to the madness.
Jaune Arc, God of Those Who Represent The Audience
- Symbol: His weapon, Crocea Mors (A sword and collapsible shield)
- Alignment: Neutral Good
- Portfolio: Moron on the outside, badass on the inside, the one who is told all about the things regarding the world, having severe lacking fighting skills compared to others, having lots potential but no skills, originally being deadweight before increasing his combat prowess, having the most normal, yet still capable, weapon set ever, trying his best to pick up chicks, golden hair and heart, keeping promises even if they end up embarrassing him.
- Domains: Audience, Fighting, Fantasy
- Enemies: All bullies in the Pantheon, all gods in the House of Villainy and Hatred (except Eren).
- Was called to the Pantheon and at first was ashamed because he thought they were catching him for forging approval papers. Instead, the powers that be admitted that he fit Audience Surrogate pretty well and, after the resulting fight in Forever Fall, gave him a Demigod standing. Ruby Rose hugged him in delight.
- However for Jaune to be accepted, the gods had to place Spike in the Unsorted. Their reasoning was that Spike never acted upon the Audience Surrogate trope he was designated for. Spike took it all in stride, as he knows that there will be a house just for him, and wished Jaune the best of luck.
- When he ascended, he had to ride a special jet plane that left him a little...air sick. The first thing he did before his meeting with the Council was vomit in a nearby trashcan. The Trollkaiger love to laugh at his nickname, "Vomit Boy". Jaune takes it in stride as, in his opinion, it's better than being stuffed into rocket lockers.
- Trains super hard with the likes of Link to improve his skill with the sword and shield. Also hopes to work with Lucario to help unlock more of his powers of Aura. This is so that when his fellow teammates make it to the Pantheon, he would be able to fight alongside them. Team RWBY has also been willing to train him.
- Tries his best to impress many of the goddesses in the House of Love, but usually falls flat on his face doing so.
- After learning of "Project: Alternate Gentaro", Jaune wanted to take a look at the damage. Unfortunately, the Friendship Asylum got to him, brainwashing him into a slave of its own. Team RWBY is on the case, hoping to get their friend back.
- Jaune was later rescued and purified by Ruby and Kairi, but his soul was taken by the asylum, leaving Jaune comatose.
- Has recently gone into a period of mourning, along with the rest of people of his world, for a great man who will be sorely missed.
Joanne Murray, Current Wielder of Chekhov's Gun
- Demigoddess (Normal Human, but with a great power over Chekhov's Gun that allowed her into the Pantheon)
- Symbol: The Harry Potter series.
- Alignment: Neutral Good
- Portfolio: All Manner of Things that are Used, Forgotten About, and Then Come Back To Bite.
- Domains: Secrets, Hidden Things, Details You Didn't Notice the First Time.
- Followers: All previous wielders.
- Ally: Alan Wake.
- Underlings: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, Lord Voldemort, Bellatrix Lestrange, Dolores Umbridge, Draco Malfoy, Cornelius Fudge, Sybil Trelawney.
- All of the Harry Potter disgraces hate her, as she the author of the canon that they seek to refute. They have attempted to attack her directly, and have learned the hard way that Jo is not to be messed with, as not only can she use the powers that Chekhov's Gun grants her very well, but every character that she created can be expected to come to her aid in times of need.
- Is hated by a lot of Sue-Authors (as well as Rose Potter) because they don't understand how Jo's work was hailed as great literature, while their own creations are condemned to the Disgraces, even though Jo uses characters that are "lesser" than those made by Sue-authors. Jo does not respond to their various challenges, preferring to let the true merits of the Harry Potter series and the fan reaction to the Sues speak for itself.
- Although that's her official policy, it is suspected that she created the character of Nymphadora Tonks as a response to these characters, as Tonks is a fully-realized character with many of the superficial traits of Mary Sues.
- A group of schismatics has also claimed that she wrote My Immortal, just to prove that she was better at everything writing-related than her fans, including writing badly. This sect is mostly ignored.
- J.K. Rowling was not the first wielder of Chekhov's Gun. That belonged to the one who invented it, whose name is lost to time. She is simply the current one. Before her was Anton Chekhov, who named the fool thing, so his wielding of it was kind of inevitable. J.K. ascended to her position by her use of many and varied styles of Chekhov's Gun, aside from the basic Chekhov's Gun and Chekhov's Gunman (not that she doesn't have a lot of them too). She has Chekhov's Gift, Chekhov's Classroom, The Legend of Chekhov, and more. Nothing in Harry Potter comes without Foreshadowing. This quality of hers led to her being presented with the power over the artifact, which she uses to great effect (of course, a savvy viewer could have found that out long beforehand).
- The Gun itself is still an artifact, and still kept in the Pantheon Treasure chambers, but J.K. can summon it out, and lend it for the use of lesser writers, and use it herself, to great effect due to the nature of reality in the Trope Pantheons.
- Has written books other than the Harry Potter series; The Casual Vacancy and The Cuckoo's Calling. The latter she wrote under a pen name, Robert Galbraith. It took four months before she was outed.
King Gator, God of WTF Moments
- Theme Song: "Let's Make Music Together"
- Symbol: The Big Lipped Alligator Moment Insignia◊
- Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
- Portfolio: Randomness, Crossdressing, Talking and Singing Animals
- Domains: Animal, Chaos, Trickery.
- Ascended in a massive, freaky, suggestive all-singing-all-dancing show that nobody has ever talked about since. 'Cept Deadpool, but he's weird like that.
- Rumors still abound, however, that he still shows up and tries to convince various deities to do a dance number with him. These rumors remain unconfirmed, mostly because very few ever actually talk about them afterwards.
- Few gods have pointed out that the scene did have some significance to the progress of story and that King Gator did later appear in the climax. Doesn't make the scene any less weirder.
Lance Corporal Jack Jones
Lance Corporal Jack Jones, God of Bayonets and Rambling Monologues
(Mr. Jones, Silly Old Duffer)
- Theme Song: Who Do You Think You Are Kidding, Mr. Hitler?
- Rank: Demigod
- Symbol: A pointed arrow patterned with the Union Jack’s colours.
- Alignment: Lawful Good
- Portfolio: Bayonet Ya, Cool Old Guy, Rambling Old Man Monologue, Perilous Old Fool, Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass, Cloud Cuckoo Lander, Large Ham, Leeroy Jenkins, Old Soldier.

- Allies: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Captain Martin Walker, Roy Mustang, All Good-Aligned Deities in the House of Bladed Weapons, Herr Doktor Tenma, Captain America, The Basterds, Kirby, The Walmington-On-Sea Home Guard Platoon.
- Enemies: Wilhelm “Deathshead” Strasse, Johan Liebert, Red Skull.
- When offered the position in the Pantheon, Corporal Jones asked permission from his superior Captain Mainwaring. Mainwaring agreed, while looking quite flustered and unhappy. He was welcome by many members of the House of War and the House of Weapons for his long service as a soldier.
- Whenever something dramatic or exciting happens in the Pantheon, he will run through the House of Weapons (or wherever he is at the time) shouting “DON’T PANIC! DON’T PANIC!”
- Expresses slight envy towards Captain America for being as old as he is, but still being younger and stronger. Jones has since vowed to be as good a soldier as Rogers is. When told about this, Rogers met Jones, saluted him, and gave him an encouraging pat on the back.
- Immediately goes after any Nazi-related deity, and for a time, had trouble trusting any German, Italian, and Japanese deities, but has mellowed out quite a bit. He favours Doktor Tenma for his kindness and sense of good.
- Often one of the first to volunteer for just about anything, regardless of what it is, fuelling his Blood Knight tendencies. Among his attempted ventures were testing GLaDOS’ defences, cross the whole of the House of War’s battlefields without harm, and become the guard of the Disgraces, promising to do lethal things with his bayonet to those who caused trouble.
- When off-duty, he works as a butcher in the House of Food and is visited a lot by Kirby, who he has to bribe with food to avoid losing all of his trade to the pink puffball.
- Despite his daily habit of going into ramblings about his time in the Sudan, his stories are appreciated by some of the elder veterans of the House of War.
- Attempted to charge into The Fallen's realm when he learned Downfall Hitler lived there.
Mio Sakamoto, Goddess of Supporting Leaders
(Samurai, Sakamoto the Demon)
- Demigoddess, used to be Lesser Goddess
- Symbol: A round emblem which has the design on her, now discarded, eyepatch.
- Alignment: Lawful Good
- Portfolio: Secondary Character As The Leader, Number Two, Boisterous Bruiser, Majorly Awesome, Cool Big Sis, but Drill Sergeant Nasty to some, Proud Warrior Race Gal, Older Than She Looks, Honor Before Reason, Katanas, Lost of Power Due of Age and Magic-Draining Sword
- Domains: Leaders, Fighters, Lost of Magic
- Followers: Takeda Shingen, Sylia Stingray, Princess Leia
- Allies: Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen, Sanya V. Litvyak, Honor Harrington, Chun-Li, Megumi Aino / Cure Lovely, Members of The Mighty Majors (especially Motoko Kusanagi and Alex Louis Armstrong), Ikaruga, Satsuki Kiryuin, Yamato, The 501st Legion
- Enemies: Borg Queen, The Daleks, Deoxys, Ragyu Kiryuin,
- Major (Or 1st Class Flight Petty Officer, depending on what branch she is on) Mio Sakamoto of Fuso, she was the second-in-command of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing "Strike Witches". Where she might not be the main character (that honour would belong to Yoshika Miyafuji), she still was the squadron leader, and had an important role on things, especially with Miyafuji.
- Naturally, she is considered the counterpart of Megumi Aino, Goddess of Supporting Protagonists. She feels proud of her, all things considered.
- One of few deities in the Pantheon, who became weaker after their development. Indeed, as she was getting into the age where she wouldn't be able to be a Witch anymore, she used up all of her magic to fight just a little bit further. Where some have offered to recover her magic back to normal, she refuses.
- Yamato, in particular feel sorry for her, as she used that remaining magic she had to power up the Neuroi Core Control Reactor the Yamato of her world had. Mio, fortunately, doesn't feel like she should worry about those details.
- Where bit devastated by the fact that she cannot fly, she still goes on, even if it means using a fighter plane. Especially when she started seeing many gods who would fight on even without magic, she was motivated to go on fighting. She is seen practicing her sword techniques with Ikagura. She even was offered a spot in "The Mighty Majors".
- Normally, she is really easy-going and friendly to others, especially her subordinates, and is known to her jolly laugh. However, put her in charge or training, and she will whip you to shape, no matter what it might take. Though this is because she does not want to loose a fellow man in battle.
- She sometimes tries to speak English, though she is getting bit wary of it, because one time she tried it, her voice brought the attention of Lucy, a meeting she would prefer to avoid if all possible.
- Some gods like Ichiko have noted that her Reppuzan technique with Reppumaru looks a lot like Getsuga Tensho. She does not agree or deny it, but where she does feel regret that she never got to use Shin Reppuzan due of running out of magic to even pull off normal Reppuzan, she feels proud that Miyafuji was able to pull it off.
- Date Masamune once asked why she discarded her eyepatch. She explained that without her Magic Eye, she has no use to cover her right eye.
- Is not allowed to drink anything alcoholic. The last time she was given some, she practically kissed every female deity in proximity and ran off drunk.
- Was made the personal trainer of the 501st Legion, maybe as a small joke. None a less, even thought it means she has to train more men than ever before, she gladly took the challenge. The Stormtroopers don't seem to mind her, even if she might be bit enthusiastic about the training trills.
Parker Lewis and Ferris Bueller
Dr. John H. Watson, God of Exposition Requesters
(The Scourge of Three Continents)
- Alignment: Neutral Good
- Portfolio: Asking for Information, Stoics, Second best to Holmes, Supporting Protagonist,
- Domain: Exposition, Detectives
- Followers: Dawson of Baker Street
- Allies: Sherlock Holmes, The Doctor, Leonard McCoy, April O'Neal, Kyon, Every God from the House of Justice, Robin
- Sherlock Holmes, at an unspecified point of time in the pantheon, was inactive over the days. Suddenly, Commissioners Gygax and Arneson called in him in to see Watson. After a sweet reunion, the two of them went to work far harder than usual.
- While he is not as skilled as Holmes in deducing stuff, he has been little successful to solve a few mysteries on his own. However, He goes to the House of Knowledge to improve on his deductive skills.
- Provided that he has a degree in medicinry, Watson sometimes Visits the GUAG medical division from to treat some patients. Other times, he also visits the House of Love to remember his first love of a lady named Mary Morstan. During his trips there, it's been said that he seduced women from three continents from his home realm. Some naughty beings find this impressive for a guy in his time. However, Watson keeps his mouth shut in these moments.
- Is not very happy about his recent portrayals of being a chubby, if not obese, idiot who's been used for sheer comedy. He's been seen having a few drinks with Dick Grayson (Not Nightwing).
Elan, God of GenreSavvy Morons
- Symbol: Banjo, God of Puppets.
- Alignment: Foolish Good
- Portfolio: Genre Savvy, Lack of any other Savvy, Banjos.
- Domain: Illusion, Wisdom (only applies to fiction related knowledge), Inspiration.
- Allies: Ascended: Flonne, Varric Tethras
- Unascended: The rest of the Order of the Stick
- Enemies: Xykon, Tarquin
- Elan was raised up by Banjo himself, as his high priest.
- Likes to sing about whatever he's doing and jump through windows as part of a dramatic entrance.
- He has been laying low ever since he discovered that his evil father, Tarquin, and his team's nemesis, Xykon, have both ascended.
- Recently, the rest of the Order of the Stick has been given the go ahead to ascend. Elan was VERY happy.
- Became fast friends with Varric though even he thinks he can get too meta.
Lieutenant Mary Sue, Goddess of Parody Sues
(The Original Sue)
- Symbol: A Starfleet Badge, but shinier than usual.
- Alignment: Neutral Good
- Portfolio: Parodies Of The Mary Sue Concept, The Youngest Lieutenant In The Fleet At Fifteen And A Half Years Old, Half-Vulcan, Incorruptible Pure Pureness.

- Followers: All Non-Disgraced Mary Sues (though she wishes that they wouldn't, they just missed that her fanfiction is a parody).
- Allies: James T. Kirk, Spock, Leonard McCoy (she met them in her fic).
- In Good Terms With: The Protectors Of The Plot Continuum.
- Headbutting Heroines With: Ichigo Momomiya.
- Enemies: The Disgraces, for trying to bring her back to Mary Suetopia.
- High Priestess: Ensign Sue (her successor).
- Mary Sue died heroically saving the Enterprise, but members of the House of Theater found her casket floating through space and discovered that she was not quite dead. They revived her, and she immediately stood trial for being a Mary Sue (in fact, the one who named the trope). She was thrown to the Disgraces, but changing standards of what makes a Sue rendered her sins small potatoes, and that combined with her satirical intent allowed her to jump to Purgatory, and then return to the Pantheon.
- Despite her redemption, many of the Disgraces still see her as the original Sue and follow her. This greatly embarrasses Mary, and she has tried to get them off her back, but with no success.
- Spends most of her time in the Pantheon trying to prove that she's worthy of being a true Goddess. She has won over several of the members of the Pantheon, mostly Gods with a sense of humor, but others remain hostile and suspicious of her.
- Surprised everyone, including the PPC, when she asked them for a role as an agent. They accepted (though not without first checking to make sure they hadn't gone hallucinatory), and now Mary Sue works for their organization, taking out Sues her own way.
- She's currently happy with her current role in this house... however, Kirk is trying to seduce her like the another time, she's not pleased. She's having a hard time convincing him that she's not that type of Sue.
Vince Russo, God of Implausible Plot Twists
(Mr. Russoriffic, Mr. Crash TV)
- Symbol: A mash-up of the WWE, WCW and TNA logos...on a pole
- Alignment: Varies, depending on the storyline

- Opposed by: Smarks, Jim Cornette.
- High Priest: M. Night Shyamalan.
- Russo recently challenged and defeated M. Night Shyamalan for the throne in a steel cage match. The cage had an invisible electric grid on it, and Shyamalan burned to death trying to escape... or did he?
- Turns out Shyamalan is still alive, and as a compensation prize, he's assigned as Russo's High Priest.
- For the shock of everyone, he's part of the Pantheon Wrestling Federation. Fortunately, he's assigned to sub-booker since nobody wants the plots to be swerved if he would be the main booker.
