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 Official God of 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.
- Allies: Orochimaru, The Joker, Ridley, Griffith, The Golden Spider
- Enemies: Byakuya Kuchiki, Itachi Uchiha, Kagome, Inuyasha
- 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
Roxas, God of the Prolonged Prologue
(The Key of Destiny, Number XIII)
- Theme Songs: Roxas, The Other Promise (when battling), Another Side (vs. Riku)
- Intermediate God, Greater God when wielding Oathkeeper and Oblivion
- Symbol: The Oathkeeper and Oblivion Keyblades
- Alignment: True Neutral at first, Neutral Good in truth
- Portfolio: Cosmic Plaything, Anti-Villain, Decoy Protagonist, using light for the Organization, being Token Good Teammate for the Organization, Punch Clock Villain, being a Morality Pet
- Domain: Introductions, Prologues, Exposition, Time, Beginnings
- Allies: Axel (Lea), Xion, Sora, Wreck-It Ralph, Link, Ruby Rose
- Rival: Riku
- Enemies: Master Xehanort (specifically his Nobody, Xemnas)
- Ascended at both Sora and Lea's request. The two of them had Phoenix Wright make a case in front of the Court of Gods for why Roxas was technically a separate individual from Sora, despite being his Nobody. In light of recent events before the hearing, as well as Roxas starring in the prologue that used to name this trope, it was deemed that Roxas may be allowed in the Pantheon as his own character.
- Upon proper ascension, Roxas had a joyful reunion with Axel. While the two had left on uneven terms, they were more than willing to put it behind them and enjoy being in the Pantheon, free from the Organization's designs. They, of course, had Sea Salt ice cream to celebrate.
- While Lea won't make a big fuss in general, Roxas is in particular one of the few he'll allow to use his Organization name.
- While they have moved past it, Roxas thinks that he and Riku should settle the score and have a friendly rematch.
- Roxas considers his title somewhat of a backhanded compliment, but will take it nonetheless. He has also met up with Link, and they've discussed the long prologues they've had to go through.
- Lenneth Valkyrie, of all people, took the time to describe her game's prologue to Roxas and Link.
- Since he's lived a whole year as a Punch Clock Villain, Roxas was able to find common ground with Wreck-It Ralph. Since then, the two have met for ice cream, officially making them friends, in Roxas's book. This is notable, as Ralph is one of the few Disney gods that Sora has yet to encounter on his travels (for now).
- At one point, Ralph invited Vanellope to accompany them. Roxas didn't mind, it certainly made for a louder ice cream meeting than usual. Though Vanellope did remind him of Lock, Shock, and Barrel a bit too much.
- Is very uneasy around Raiden, due to the fact that he sounds a lot like Axel, in addition to his generally unnerving behavior. On the flip side, Raiden considers Roxas to technically be a child soldier, and has considered making Xehanort one of his targets.
- After spending an amount of time in Sora's heart, Roxas has gained a vague idea of Xion's identity. Upon telling Axel, the latter took him to meet Ruby Rose, who was able to automatically trigger more of Roxas's memories, just like she could for Axel, finally reestablishing Xion in their minds.
- Axel then told Roxas about Xion being trapped as the ambassador in Suetopia. At that point, the three of them decided to finally get Xion out of there, with Roxas bringing out Oathkeeper and Oblivion. It took some doing, but they eventually saved her, reunited, and found a place for her.
Sol Badguy, God of False Marty Stus
(The Guilty Gear, The Flame of Corruption, Frederick
, Marty Stu
- Theme Song: Keep Yourself Alive 2 or 3, or Ride the Fire.
- Intermediate God (Greater God in his true form)
- Symbol: The Fireseal on the Mark of the Gears.
- Weapon of Choice: Fireseal/Fuuenken.
- 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, Standing in for the Creator.
- Domains: War, Freedom, Vengeance, Fire.
- Followers: Balsa.
- Allies: Vash, Seras Victoria, Kenshin Himura, Dizzy, Scorpion, Ichigo Momomiya (she steps in if there's any trouble pertaining to his other station), Yuji Sakai, William "B.J." Blascovicz, Booker DeWitt, Ragna the Bloodedge, Hakumen, Siegfried Schtauffen, Cecil Harvey, Human Torch, Alucard, Captain America, Yuri Lowell.
- Rivals: Ky Kiske, Jin Kisaragi.
- Enemies: I-No, Justice, The Millennium, Wilhelm "Deathstead" Strasse, Light Yagami, Yuno Gasai, Nui Harime, Shinnok.
- All of his followers are too busy going out, righting their wrongs. They just sign in at his temple, then leave.
- Speaks to other gods sparingly (often disparagingly), but holds Kenshin, Vash an Zuko in decent regard as fellow atoners (though he'd never say it to their faces). Openly dislikes Light Yagami for his utopian tendencies.
- Is pestered almost constantly by Dante Sparda and Kenpachi Zaraki for a fight. After the mess with GI Guy, Sol finally did respond to the two of them, engaging in a chaotic melee that set the chosen arena aflame, cut it into pieces, then scattered those pieces far and wide. Domon Kasshu and Kamina were rather impressed.
- Was briefly considered to be in the running for God of Fire, but after seeing Shigekuni Yamamoto-Genryusai in action, he turned around and walked away, muttering to himself. Not even after Yamamoto's "death" that Sol was thinking of a takeover, he's got other business. Until the ascension of the Human Torch, and Sol is STILL not thinking of takeover. Looks like he just gave up on the whole ordeal or considered such thing irrelevant.
- Pulls double duty as the God of Atoners in the House of Heroes.
- Has good taste in music, being a fan of Freddie Mercury and Queen. One of Sol's prized possessions from his era is their Sheer Heart Attack album.
- He's lately been seen smirking and cracking his neck while grinning. All that's left for the clue is "About damn time..."
- After hearing Ragna's fate, Sol has wondered if maybe he should be the one putting an end to him if the time comes... because he doesn't trust Jin enough. This put the two at odds.
- He's forced to pull back his words when he realized that his Dragon Install can make him more draconic and demonic the same way like Ragna, and as of recent, it's gotten more often.
- As if fate itself had decided though, he has recently been chosen by Wiz and Boomstick to fight a Death Battle with Ragna. Time will tell if he can indeed live up to his words.
- However, Sol is one of the people who suggests that they shouldn't just pick Ragna at his current condition, as even Sol finds fighting someone at that state completely insulting. Thankfully, the Pantheon has an alternate solution: use Time Travel to yank an 'alternate' Ragna when he's at his peak, and shit hasn't hit the fan. Sol smirked as he cracked both his knuckles and lightly on the neck, ready for battle.
- Once the fight actually happened, the judges were surprised how evenly Sol and Ragna ended up going against eachother, all things considered. However, something about the Ragna that was used seemed to had been "faulty", as he transformed into Black Beast fully after Sol only did one significant stab at him, forcing Sol to activate full Gear mode to kill the Black Beast in one shot before anything worse would happen. Even so, Sol was slightly annoyed to hear Boomstick claim that he won because he had 18 belts to Ragna's four.
- Unlike Ragna when it comes with being in Scorpion's house, Sol seems to get along well with him.
- Is one of the eight gods to make Marty Stu look good. The other ones are Sebastian Michaelis, Alucard (the one from Hellsing), Daigo Kiryu/Kyoryu Red, Souji Tendou/Kamen Rider Kabuto, Nick Russel/Red Mystic Ranger, Kira Yamato and Horatio Caine.
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.
