The Power Dome

A dome created to test every type of power of the Gods. Like the Combat Dojo, the Power Dome is also indestructible and has various obstacle courses based on the super powers the Gods have. Exactly What It Says on the Tin, this house overflows, and in some cases, glows with an awesome POWEEEEERRRR!!!! UUUUUNLIMITEEEED POOOOOWEEEEEEERRRR!!!!

It's connected side-to-side with the House of Combat.

  • Former Enemy: Hera
  • The result of a union between Zeus and a mortal woman named Alcmeme, Hercules in his own right was one of the most badass Greco-Roman deities of all time. With a history filled to the brim by tales of strength, battle, and courage, Hercules has partaken in countless fights and quests and found himself in various incarnations across many different universes.
  • Hercules' official rank has always been a debated issue in the pantheon. Some wanted him to be label as a Demigod since that's what he is in literal terms. Others argue that a demigod in the Trope Pantheon has a different meaning compared to the mortal realm. After a lengthy discussion, it was decided to rank Hercules as an Intermediate God.
  • While most of his feats have involved some amount of either heroism of pure badassery, there have been times where the Olympic gods have manipulated his rage. Not the least among them, his father's jealous wife Hera has attempted to have him killed on numerous occasions as well as slowly cursed him with madness throughout his life. When the madness bursts, it tends to have disastrous effects, such as the time he killed his wife Megara along with their children. He still hasn't fully gotten over this.
  • Is always assisted with a triumvirate of assistants/prophets consisting of Iolaus, Amadeus Cho and Illyasviel von Einzbern, but now just duo after Illya's ascension. For her part, Illya often takes advantage of her ability to summon Hercules and have him act as her Berserker-on-command when she has a battle to take on, reversing the dynamic. He has the power to nullify her Mad Enhancements in his ascended state within the Pantheon, but he likes and trusts her well enough and she lets him cut loose in battle so he allows her to use him anyway.
    • That said, there's still an effort to keep his madness state in check. He may become even more powerful, but he dreads being rained with the jobber aura that comes with it.
  • Princess Diana/Wonder Woman was at first wary of his presence due to his actions in the DC Universe, where he was strangely power-hungry and scheming to take over the place. Said actions include raping Queen Hippolyta, enslaving the Amazons, and attempting to manipulate Wonder Woman in order to take her powers on multiple occasions. Though he has had his moments where he resisted the madness even there and contritely accepted punishments for his actions, it took a reset of that universe before he could once again truly be his usual heroic self there. Even within the Pantheon it took her awhile to get used to seeing him as the boisterous yet ultimately well-meaning guy he usually is.
  • At one point, Hercules was somehow transformed into a 12-foot-tall, 400-pound monstrosity almost reminiscent of the Hulk except without the gamma-colored green skin. During this time, Kratos was running around killing the gods either for each other's vendettas or for his own, and had come across and opened Pandora's Box in the process, which caused Hercules to be infected with the sin of Envy. Hera manipulated this envy and had Hercules direct it at Kratos for daring to surpass him in Olympic fame and favor so that Hercules would stop Kratos. The ensuing fight led to Herc's face being caved in with his own Nemean Cestus and this monstrous form being completely dead. Since returning to normal he has been careful to anger his brother again, putting the Ghost of Sparta on the very short list of people Herc is actually afraid to fight.
    • Despite his resolution, it was Hercules that was actually angry with Kratos due to the envy infection and Hera's manipulation. Far from upset with Hercules, Kratos was angry at the gods who sent Hercules in his path and gave Herc numerous chances to stand down. Aside from this incident, the two half-brothers have always held a mutual respect for each other due to their similar misfortunes in life and tenuous relationship to the Olympic Gods — making his "reasons" for envying and hating Kratos at that time utterly nonsensical.
  • His latest achievement is to give a God of Thunder a divine nurple. This gave him a bit of a nasty rumor about him doing it to Fate Testarossa, but Herc has denied it vehemently. "I don't do that to girls!"
  • Thinks that this article about him is a cool story, bro!
  • If anything, don't call him Jerkules. It also becomes a catalyst for his Super-Powered Evil Side. Prepare for a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
  • He has been seen in the company of The Irate Gamer. The two play video games together, which Hercules tends to win. He doesn't stay for long however, because being in the Irate Gamer's company for an extended period of time saps his powers. Herc suspects that the Irate Gamer is trying to cheat so that he can win their games for once.
  • He has recently made a bit of a friendship with Guan Yu when they fought alongside or against each other in a certain arena. Herc commends Guan Yu's strength, but thinks the latter should loosen up a bit, like him. Much to Herc's surprise, it's Guan Yu's rigid view of war and calling out that his 'fun' attitude sound like insulting the his deceased family, who he'd killed in a fit of Hera-induced madness. "Didn't you wish to atone for your heavy sin? Were your labors just another happy adventures, or your form of atonement?" Herc wisened up on that and has learned to use a more subdued persona. He's still damn looking forward for heads to bash though.
    • Though after Hercules proved himself, Guan Yu is okay with him channeling his happy boisterousness again, due to the influence of one of Herc's greatest mortal avatars, Kevin Sorbo.
  • His portfolio has a Distaff Counterpart, which is managed by Aphrodite. After fighting side-by-side in the Battlefield of the Gods, Herc trusts her enough, and usually lets her slip off and call him 'Heracles' and think of him as a Roman dude instead of Greek.
  • Has an infamous way to express his disappointment, probably thanks to ProtonJon.
  • With Ares' ascension to the pantheon, the two often engage in battle. Herc always wins his fights against his brother, though both are left severely bruised after the encounter.
  • Hercules occasionally could be seen within the Forests of Caldavar, standing in for the hero called Hammerstorm. Interested in his style, Herc asked where did he learn from, in which he answered: Sven the Rogue Knight. With much interest, Hercules gets pumped up to challenge Sven and test his mettle. After one mighty and legendary duel, both stood their ground and with much good impression, Hercules offered Sven a new domain he could get used to and neighboring with him: Super Strength. To honor the great battle between men and because he feels it's right, Sven accepted and ever since, Herc has got himself one nice neighbor.
  • When Illyasviel caught an instance of his uneasy relationship with Diana and asked him about it, he confessed to Illya his villainous acts in Diana's world which had caused her to hate him. Though he expected Illya to at least be angry at him, much to his shock, the girl quickly deduced that Hera's curse on Hercules was responsible for much of what he did there and held none of it against him.
    • Curious as to why the curse would have such a sinister subconscious effect on him in the DC Universe, the two set out to investigate, brushing up in the house of Knowledge as well as testing and observing his powers. So far they managed to figure out that fighting under Mad Enhancement helps him work Hera's madness out of his system.
    • Because Hera is so close to the Themiscyran Amazons and doesn't trust him around them, he and Illya have decided to keep the object of these exploits a secret from both Hera and Wonder Woman until they fully figure out what's going on, lest they risk driving an unnecessary wedge or drawing the ire of both women.
  • Whenever he's met Greed the Avaricious it's been in one of two situations; alongside Illya as Berserker, and alone as his normal self at Greed's bar Stray Dog. This puts him in the unique situation of knowing things about Greed's friendship and conversations with Illya while Greed has no clue he's been standing there all along. He's decided to have a little fun with this, standing around mute as usual while they're talking but listening somewhat attentively and picking up on details so he can pitch in his thoughts later through coded "bro-tips" to Greed at Stray Dog. So far neither one has picked up on this, but Illya does seem to get nicer when she meets with him after her next chat with Greed.

Unknown/Variable Rank

    The Neuroi 
The Neuroi, Those With Destroyable Cores (Kaii, Rätsel)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/482e0e6dd2b6db4c539fc0b1b3aec63b.png
  • Variable rank, ranges from Demigods (Drones, Light, Medium), to Lesser Gods (Heavy, Witch-like), to Intermediate Gods (Large, Capital and Super-Heavy)
  • Symbol: A red, glowing polyhedron
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Destroyable Cores, Hexagonal Structure, Regeneration, Alien Invasion, Taking Over Majority of Europe, Massive Amount of Lasers, Miasma, Black, Red and Belligerent, So-and-So Mechanical Lifeforms, Based on Real Aircrafts, Loud Screeches, Disappearing into Nothingness
  • Domains: Aliens, Technology, Cores, Lasers
  • Followers: Big Cores
  • Allies: Brainiac (supposedly), Unicron
  • Enemies: The Strike Witches are in high priority. Really, everyone in the Pantheon
  • Where there are many species-wide deities, most of them more or less invaded the Pantheon. The Neuroi, however, were brought here as a single core to experiment on them. As with the previous times, it failed epically. The single Neuroi core managed to cut connections to House of Technology, and then rose to the skies, taking many vehicles with it. Creating the dark cloud-like Hive above House of Technology, it unleashed a dozen of new Neuroi models based on the vehicles it absorbed, causing everyone to evacuate, allowing the Nest to feast on the House itself.
    • The Neuroi Hive above House of Technology was "defeated" when the ascended Strike Witches, alongside others like the Vic Vipers came and started defeating the Neuroi horde. However, the Hive was only driven off the actual Pantheon arena, and once it came across a massive land of nothing, it unleashed an entire armada of Neuroi to shake off the pursuers and settled there.
  • Neuroi come in different shapes and forms, mainly aerial, each looking like a mechanical thing covered in hexagonal plating, with red plating being able to shoot lasers. They can generate destroyed parts, requiring some one to destroy their core if they have one to defeat them.
    • What might be the most sought-after form are the Witch-like Neuroi like the X-11 "Neuroi Girl", due of their appearance. However, their purpose is no other than a regular Neuroi, aside of maybe acting as a lure.
    • Some historical records seem to indicate that Neuroi existed way far back than they are known as now, as ancient monsters like dragons, the Hydra and even as Orochi.
  • Neuroi also has the ability to corrupt humans to their side, mainly to collect info from them and to make them lead their Witch-type Neuroi. Saving a corrupted human is rather easy, though: just tear off their clothes.
  • Since the Neuroi get their energy by feeding off the earth, they cannot move on water, making the Abyssal Fleet still the true threat of the sea. Though they are trying to work around that problem...
    • Speaking of which, both Akagi and Yamato fret the day Neuroi came into the Pantheon, due the fact that both of them were Neuroified.
  • The only one/thing they consider being ally is Brainiac. Though it is hard to tell if Brainiac has actual control over them for that to happen. He also finds it annoying how they might destroy valuable monuments and such on their wake.
  • Due of them being completely machine-like, they do not fit with other species-wide deities like Daleks, Tyranids and The Flood. Even the Goo are not save, as the Neuroi do not seem to like how they try to consume everything before they can.
  • Might have a closely related cousin of mechanical alien creatures called the Alone.
  • Its hard to say how they became the mooks of The Robotic Ravagers, considering that unlike the other members, Neuroi only destroy and kill to get rid of any and all potential threat. They already know what Ultron plans to do with them... and if he manages to hijack the current Hive, well, there is always a Super-Hive.
  • The current Neuroi Hive seem to have started some communication channels to mimic some other Neuroi Hives. It is mainly used to ensure the Hive's own survival and not much else. The Hive itself says it uses its forces to simply "get rid of any immediate obstacles" but threatens that if someone tries to attack the Hive full-force, it will make sure that they will take them down with them.
