Pantheon: Narrative Intermediate Gods
open/close all folders
Ben, God of Creepy Pasta
- Theme: The Song of Healing. Played backwards.
- Intermediate God…maybe.
- Symbol: A disturbing Link Statue.
- Alignment: Chaotic Evil
- Portfolio: Haunted Game Cartridges, Nightmare Fuel, Contagious A.I. (?), Eldritch Abomination (?), Sealed Evil in a Game Cartridge
- Domains: Fear, The Internet, the Paranormal, Glitches, Nostalgia, Water(?)
- Herald: Smiledog
- Priests: The crew of the Laughingstock.
- Allies: Slenderman.
- Enemies: Link, Zelda, Ganondorf.
- Ben is an enigmatic figure: his nature, his actions, his ultimate goal, his origin, all complete mysteries. Many gods and goddesses offer widely differing explanations for the creature, but there is one thing they all agree on: at some point, Ben drowned.
- Ben appeared in the pantheon soon after an odd event in the House of Gaming: a god playing Majora’s Mask noted that the game had started to glitch up, referring to him as “Ben”. When he reset the game, he was greeted with the words “You shouldn’t have done that.” He mentioned hearing the Song of Healing played backwards before passing out.
- While Ben’s domain is Creepypasta in general, his specialty is the corruption of innocence: that is to say, creepy and unsettling takes on old, nostalgic pieces of entertainment. Suicidemouse.avi, Squidward’s Suicide, Dead Bart and all manner of ‘lost episodes’ and ‘game hacks’ spring from Ben.
- Also holds a place in the House of Technology, due to the fact Creepypastas originated from the internet.
- He is rumored to have some sort of connection with Polybius.
Littlefoot, God of Sequels and Sequelitis
- Intermediate God
- Symbol: A Treestar (aka a large green leaf).
- Alignment: Neutral Good, edges on Lawful Good
- Portfolio: Dinosaurs, Executive Meddling, Formulaic Fiction, Recycled Scripts, Direct-to-Video.
- Domains: Theater, Commerce, Nature.
- Followers: Most of Don Bluth's other characters and many Disney hero/ines. Every single slasher villain. Also applies to characters/universes from the following: the American Pie films, National Lampoon, Species, Police Academy, etc.
- Superior: Don Bluth.
- Non-Ascended: The rest of his Prehistoric Pals (Cera, Ducky, Petrie, Spike (the spiketail, not the one in The Fallen or the one in this house), Chomper, and Ruby).
- Ascended: D'Leh, Fievel Mousekewitz
- Littlefoot has not only been on the receiving end of one of the worst cases of sequelitis in recorded history, but he's lived to tell the tale. His long years suffering under contractually obligated sequels— the only things keeping Universal Cartoon Studios alive— have given him a full understanding of one of the most chaotic constructs of fiction: the sequel.
- Followers seeking relief from their sequelitis go to him for worship. "It's okay," he soothes, smiling sympathetically at them. "As bad as it is right now, at least you'll never co-star with an eight foot tall dinosaur-parrot voiced by Cuba Gooding Jr."
- Has had direct experience working with both George Lucas and Disney, and has had extensive experience working with a franchise run by someone other than the original creator. As such, he is watching the progress of the announced Star Wars sequels very, very closely.
- Oddly enough, despite having 13 sequels and a TV series to his name, there have been known well-wishers who find time to say that a couple were, "pretty good".
- There's a rumor that Batman and The Avengers both personally visited Littlefoot's temple with their recent sequels, begging him to grant mercy on their long term projects. The Question theorizes that Littlefoot agreed to grant them safe passage in return for a favor in the future, and that favor is the reason why My Little Pony has become highly proficient among the Gods. Most of the Gods just roll their eyes at such a ridiculous thought, though a few have worried over Littlefoot cursing them in the future. The God of Sequels is nothing to sneeze at.
- Recently, Dominic Toretto is giving him a run for his money.
Naraku, God of Filler
(The Unkillable One)
- Intermediate God
- Symbol: A shard of the Sacred Jewel.
- Alignment: Chaotic Evil
- Portfolio: Big Bads, Filler Arcs, Those With Joker Immunity, Story Breaker Power, Big Bad, Iredeemable Bastards, The Chessmaster, Combat Tentacles, Black Magic, A human combined with hundreds of Youkai, Poisonous Person, One-Winged Angel
- Domain: Chaos, Death, Renewal.

- Ascended after the destruction of the Shikon-no-tama, the item he sought for the purpose of being immortal.
- Konohamaru disputes some aspects of Naraku's pre-eminence over Filler.
- Hates Byakuya Kuchiki and Itachi Uchiha as they both remind him of Sesshomaru.
- He's unamused that Inuyasha is in the pantheon, but is glad he's in the Fallen so he won't get in the way of his plans.
- Formed an alliance with Griftith after realizing they have the same voice
Sol Badguy, God of False Marty Stus
(The Guilty Gear, The Corrupted Flame, Frederick
, Marty Stu done right
- Theme Song: Keep Yourself Alive 2 or 3. Give Me A Break.
- Intermediate God
- Symbol: The Fireseal or the Mark of the Gears.
- Alignment: Chaotic Good
- Portfolio: People With Baggage, Rampant Badassery, Cauterizing and Cutting All at Once, Stoicism, Good Sentiments Hidden by Bad Words, Being Strong, Yet Smart, Power Limiters, Standing in for the Creator.
- Domains: War, Freedom, Revenge, Fire.
- Followers (or those who hide in his temple): Duke Fleed, Zack Morris.
- Allies: Ichigo Momomiya, Mana Aida/Cure Heart, Souji Tendou/Kamen Rider Kabuto, Daigo Kiryu/Kyoryu Red, Nick Russell/Red Mystic Ranger, Kira Yamato, Horatio Caine.
- Enemies: Quan Chi, Nui Harime, Sosuke Aizen.
- Sets the examples of a well-made character that skirts the line of Marty Stu and Mary Sue after the Disgrace of Eragon (formerly) and Berii Shirayuki. Currently, his temple is a safe haven for those falsely-accused Sues/Stus hiding from the wrath of Ichigo Momomiya. Any misbehavior, however, will be repaid with a headbutt straight into the Court of the Gods for them to be judged and eventually be sent to the Disgraces, or right onto Ichigo's vengeful wrath. Best not talk about what fate befell on the ones who suffer the second category.
- Souji Tendou of the Toku Base was sent to his temple as a recommendation of Zordon. Sol feels that he's obviously overpowered, but at least got a reason for that. Tendou says that he trained 7 years to achieve said strength and skills instead of just gaining it without a reason, which is a common Stu trait. Sol gains Tendou's respect.
- Mana Aida also visited his temple since there are rumors that she's accused of being a Mary Sue. Sol explains that Mana's flaws are her very bad singing and naïvette.
- Would be a Greater God if he ever removes his headband, but since that would give him something in common with Eragon, he refuses to do so.
- Pulls double duty as the God of Atoners in the House of Heroes.
Sybil Trelawney, Goddess of Foreshadowing and the Not-So-Phony Psychic
- Intermediate God
- Symbol: Her large glasses.
- Alignment: Chaotic Weird
- Portfolio: Cloudcuckoolanders, Those Not Taken Seriously, Fainting Seers, Genius Ditzies, Fortune Tellers, Not-So-Phony Psychic, Woolley Guesswork That Turns Out to be Accurate.
- Domains: Prophecy, Strangeness, Fortune.
- Trelawney's temple has the look of a room, at the top of a tower, looking like a cross between an antiques shop and an old person's attic. A fire constantly throws intoxicating fumes in the air, and her worshipers can be seen consulting crystal balls and tea leaves, and making predictions. If you come up there and endure the atmosphere, you can find hints to the future in their activities, but often it's not clear until whatever it was has already happened.
- Trelawney is often thought of as a fraud, but if you look closely, every prophecy she makes comes true, though often not in the way everyone expected.
- It was she who read the fortunes of Madoka Kamane and Homura Akemi and first saw the Great Upheaval in their futures. In both of their tarot readings, she saw the Tower, omen of change. In the reading of the crystal ball, she saw a dark, winged, unnaturally beautiful figure looming up behind both of them. This was dismissed as her usual habit of seeing ill omens, but when the Upheaval actually came, that all changed.
- Her glasses make her look like a fly. She's annoyed that everyone notes that about her.
- Just because she has her head in the clouds, does not mean you underestimate her. In the Battle of Hogwarts she defeated THE most powerful werewolf all by dropping crystal balls on his head with a simple Wingardium Leviosa.
Theodor Geisel, God of Rhyming
- Intermediate God
- Symbol: A red and white striped top hat.
- Alignment: Neutral Good
- Portfolio: Strange Building Designs, Nonsensical Words, Random Insanity, Moral Messages
- Domains: Writing, Rhyming, Silliness
- Allies: The Lorax, Fred Rogers.
- Followers: Blix, Tom Bombadil, Uyulala, Gurgi, Thimbletack, Madame Leota, Zecora, Iron Will
- Since ascending he's taken to touring the Pantheon for inspiration on new stories. Many of the gods and their dwellings are so strange they're beyond human comprehension, but if anyone could come up with something to rival or even surpass them, it would be Dr. Seuss.
- Some time after he cast off his mortal shell in 1991, mortals back on Earth tried to make live-action adaptations of his works, with...less than stellar results. The Seuss legacy has since been safeguarded by his wife.
- Animated films, cartoons and even a Muppet-based show, however, are still allowed. The Lorax was pleased in how his film came out and Horton the Elephant also loved his. The Cat in the Hat has also taken the mantle in staring in some cartoons, his recent one helping kids learn all that he knows.
- There exists a portal in his chambers that, so it is rumored, leads to an alternate universe of Earth as his imagination perceives it. We say "rumored" because even some of the Overdeities are worried the potential for bizarre insanity the prospect holds could be used for evil purposes, and so the portal has been sealed to all but Dr. Seuss himself.
- Is a good friend with Mr. Rogers and the two team up to help create some fantastic stories for the child gods.
