His King of Tula Form 
Current Avatar 
As a Rider 
  • Greater God, thought he might be Intermediate now
  • Symbol: A statue depicting him
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (Or something like that)
  • Portfolio: Giant Flyer, God of Wind, The Nicest Of Aztec Gods But Not One To Be Messed With, Came To Earth as King of Tula, Dragons Are Divine, Accidentally Slept With His Sister, Leaving His People Behind To Return One Day
  • Domains: Wind, Sun, Creation, Dragons, Deities, Duality
  • Allies: Rayquaza, Squall Leonhart, Rinoa Heartilly, Lady Yuna, Jackie Chan, Jade, Rodan, Aerodactyl
  • Enemies: Apophis
  • Odd Friendship With: Fafnir
  • Quetzalcoatl is one of the original Aztec gods. A serpent with feathers instead of scales and sometimes possessing wings, he represented the line between land and sky.
  • Unlike most of the Aztec gods, he does not accept blood sacrifices. His brethren do, and there is a good reason why, but he himself doesn't. That is because the current humans are said to have been born from his blood.
  • In the grand scheme of things, there are other feathered serpent deities out there, such as Kukulkan of the Mayans (who currently fights on the Battlefield of the Gods). He generally doesn't concern himself with the neighbouring gods and their people, but he can't help but facepalm (face-wing?) at how Kotal Kahn ended up more or less killing the Mayan civilization. The possibility that him leaving the Aztec people behind might have been the reason why they are no more doesn't help.
  • When Quetzalcoatl came into the Pantheon, he sought out those belonging to his people. Unfortunately, the only ones he could find were the Pillar Men. He isn't impressed with mortals trying to achieve godhood the way they have.
  • He deeply regrets the time when he slept with his sister. In fact, after he immolated himself, came back and left to one day return, it is said that he lost quite a large chunk of his godly powers to make him a lesser deity (thought not literally). Currently he has an avatar in the form of a busty woman living with humans. And as a willing servant to a young magician named Shouta.
  • There seems to be some rivalry between him and Hastur, though it is really only because Hastur wants to be the only true god of wind here.
  • Has appeared as a Guardian Force... As some sort of yellow bird-like creature with lightning-based abilities. Not even he is sure what was going on then. Regardless, he has offered his services to both Squall Leonhart and Rinoa Heartilly. He has also became a summon for Lady Yuna.
  • He himself claims that monkeys came to be when he was ruler of the second Sun (AKA the second world) before his brother Tezcatlipoca struck him down, which caused him to create massive hurricanes in retaliation, thus destroying everything and turning the remaining humans into monkeys. The monkey gods have a hard time believing him, though there is one version (another timeline, perhaps?) where Tezcatlipoca turned humans into monkeys because they were growing less civilized, which made Quetzalcoatl kill all of them in a rage and stop being the Wind Sun to recreate them.
  • Feels like no one really understands him. Most believe that he wants human sacrifices, even though he accepts much less than other gods, and is seen as some evil deity, or a deity who is willing to sacrifice humans just to regain his powers, especially as the Wind Sun. Of course, he still dislikes YHVH; even if He hadn't helped Tezcatlipoca to dethrone him when he was the Wind Sun, Quetz is not fond of how controlling YHVH is.
  • Even though he himself never personally met them, he does know Jackie Chan, because a statue of himself was brought to life for a while due to the Rat Talisman. Fortunately, Quetzalcoatl didn't mistake him or any of his friends for anyone else this time.
  • Many have theorized that the legend of Quetzalcoatl came from the fossils of pterosaurs. Incidently, he actually owns a Quetzalcoatlus, which another female avatar of his — often called Rider Quetz for short — rides on. When he learned that both Rodan and Aerodactyl were pterosaurs themselves, he befriended the ancient beasts.
  • Quetzalcoatl has a name that's hard to pronounce and even harder to spell. Because of that, many of resorted to just call him Q, Quetz, or Lucoa. Not Quetzal; there's already an elderly dragon by that name.
  • Has gain a very intense interest in the wrestling styles of lucha libre, to the point where he changed his entire fighting style to be more like it. When he learned there were actual Luchadores in the Pantheon, a VERY eager smile spread across his face at the idea of fighting them.
  • He has grown an interest towards the Battleground of the Gods, but unfortunately, he couldn't bring his whole Aztec Pantheon, because his Mayan brethrens have preceded him. But as a prize for his influence, he's allowed to at times take the place of his counterpart Kukulkan over there at times.

    Sobek 
Sobek, God of Crocodiles (Sebek, Sochet, Sobk, Sobki, Suchos, God of the Nile)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sobek_4262.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A set of Crocodile jaws.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Ruler of the Crocodiles, Not-So-Bad Vicious Gods, Super Thick Skin, River Control, Cares For His Animal Deities, Wielding Axes If He Needs To Walk With Two Feet, Stone Wall.
  • Domains: Beasts, Reptiles, Water, Death.
  • Allies: Anubis, Steve Irwin, Inori Yamabuki. Also, he has tolerated Zeus, Hercules, Thor, Osiris, Guan Yu, Aphrodite, but he wouldn't call them true allies.
  • Enemies: Anyone who disses the Nile River. And Poachers. And Saxton Hale. And Big Boss
  • Feared by: Moses
  • Followers: Renekton, The Crocodile of Neverland
  • High Priest: Gustave
  • His avatar Gustave made it to the Pantheon and kept his throne "warm" (because he's cold-blooded, you see), until at one point, Gustave was seen scaring off Inori Yamabuki. In an instant, Sobek arrived,calmed Gustave down, and apologized to Buki, promising that it won't happen again. Actually, for all his dark vibes, Gustave obeyed Sobek and returned to the river. The Crocodile God then gave Buki his thanks for protecting his other crocs rather than making boots and bags out of them.
    • Ever since, Sobek has included Gustave among the crocs that magically appear whenever he creates a body of mobile water on the ground to swim around and distract/destroy his foes and anyone else who pisses him off.
  • There are a lot of rumors going around about Sobek's true nature. This ambiguity understandably bothers most deities; at least Gustave was clearly straight-up evil. Did Sobek truly make the Nile river out of his sweat? Is he something like Hades to the underworld, making the Nile river something like the river Styx? Or is he exactly like how Gustave acted, a vicious croc that ravages anyone in sight? The answer is he's all of them and none. At his core, Sobek owes his allegiance to no one, interested only in maintaining his domain. Woe betide anyone who tries to get in the way of that.
  • He was once invited to a musical by King Gator. Sobek just watched and then walked away, commenting that the music fits his job at least: pointless.
    • During that same visit to the House of Theater, he ran into one of his former followers, King K. Rool. Sobek isn't entirely sure what to make of the king or his apparent hatred of the Kongs, though he wonders whether that would change if he knew why the two groups started fighting in the first place.
  • Unlike his previous avatar, Sobek has high respect for Steve Irwin. The dude may wrestle with his crocs a lot, but it's always in good fun. Hell, after his 'ascension' (that is, accepting a seat in THIS pantheon), Sobek wrestles with Steve occasionally. He even later paid tribute by donning his clothes and attempting an Australian accent to honor him.
  • Sobek is no part of the Deep Blue Trio, not even the rivers; Gustave still holds that spot, with Sobek's permission.
  • His participation in the Battlefield of the Gods has certainly done wonders letting the world know just how goddamn tough his skin is. He always takes most of his followers for a swim whenever he's about to strike one poor schmuck and make a lot of distractions. The only one not included in the pool would be Renekton, because Sobek specifically sent him to Runeterra to spread his teachings.
    • Thanks to information from Renekton, Sobek occasionally visits some deities from Runeterra, like Miss Fortune (although she fired some shots at him because he dressed up as a pirate on a whim, and she doesn't like pirates). After clearing up the misunderstanding, Sobek was later seen on the seas, and when Miss Fortune and Jack Sparrow defeated Gangplank and kicked him into the sea, Sobek chased him like his follower the Neverland Crocodile. Unlike Captain Hook, however, Gangplank didn't get very far before he received grievous injuries in Sobek's jaws.
    • Some time after that, Sobek received a challenge to enter Gangplank's ship, the Dead Pool, for a mortal battle, and found out that Gangplank not only has already battled Kunkka, he basically dared Sobek to fight him one-on-one. Surprisingly, the man put up quite a fight, maybe due to his pent-up anger. However, the two suddenly booted out of battle and shortly after, Gangplank's ship was sunk by Miss Fortune's cannon. If anything, Sobek is going to remember the days he chased the pirate on seas.

    Orochi (Senran Kagura
Orochi, Deity of Sinister Reptiles
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/7f965552b1620cef90d78659fff1b322.jpg
SPOILER 
  • Intermediate Deity (Greater Deity as True Orochi)
  • Symbol: A giant serpent head which has faces on its throat or the wheels held by True Orochi's hair
  • Theme Music:
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Based on The Mythological Demon Serpent, Eldritch Abomination/Eldritch Location/Humanoid Abomination, Born from the Hate, Jealousy and Despair of Others, Craploads of Katanas, Womb Levels, Demonic Corruption, Bishonen Line, Beam Spam, Multi-Armed and Dangerous
  • Domains: Locations, Evil, Corruption, Snakes
  • Allies: Mikami, King Ghidorah, Jedah Dohma, Chibiki
  • Enemies: Almost every Pantheon member from the Senran Kagura universe (especially Asuka and Homura), Kyurem
  • Orochi, named such due of its resemblance to the legendary Yamata no Orochi, is a yoma who has supposedly existed for centuries, resting within the castle where the Hebijo Academy of Serpent Girls was located. It was resurrected by Dougen, using the blood of the countless Hebijo students who have died, and fueled by their hatred and jealousy.
  • While Orochi is horrifying (yet surprisingly small) from the outside, wait until you see its insides.. It is like a ruined temple embedded in flesh, with its "inhabitants" being shinobi made out of its blood. Those inside it will be corrupted, turning them into black and red versions of themselves and adopting their most spiteful and hate-filled mindset possible.
    • Further research support that even if Orochi cannot corrupt someone, it can simply create "Scarlet" versions of the gods to fight the real one instead.
  • To put it simply, almost everyone from its universe opposes it. Even though it is kept sterilized so it cannot go rampant, Asuka and Homura want it dead. And the others are there to support them.
  • No one is sure how it came into the Pantheon, and whoever was responsible, they don't want to admit it for fear of get skewered by Homura, among other things.
    • Some gods suggest that Orochi was brought here by Junko Enoshima as payback against Haruka. Helping this theory is Junko's statement that she believes that having it around would be beneficial (to her, of course) if the situation requires it.
  • Orochi used to be called the "(Un)holy Bearer of Womb Levels" in Dominions, but the wandering state and the fact that other yoma started appearing around Orochi made it really hard to contain. So it was moved here. It was an oddball regarding Dominions, anyway.
    • Even so, Jedah seems to think that Orochi might be a perfect vassal to bear that "new god" of his to create the perfect world.
  • Being that Orochi is the first snake deity in the House of Beasts, Samuel L. Jackson had a reaction which you can guess already.
  • Chibiki somehow managed to take Orochi. No one is sure how she managed to do that. However, she can simply summon Orochi and has only minimal control over it.
  • Believe or not, Orochi here is due of a result of an incomplete summoning note , explaining why it looks like it might fall down at any given moment. There exists one version what looks more properly snake-like, meaning that either that is Orochi's true form and the form it takes here is just it trying to gain a physical form, or that isn't even Orochi's true form.
    • As it turned out, that version wasn't Orochi's true form. Dougen eventually was able to summon True Orochi, taking a form of a multi-armed and legged giant woman with tremendous power, with power to practically rain lasers from the skies. While Asuka and Homura were able to stop the beast, and it was finished off by Kagura, the threat it possesses has made many deities cautious of True Orochi.
    • This is probably why Kyurem doesn't look highly on Orochi; while Kyurem knows what it feels like being "incomplete", Orochi is nothing more than destructive force practically struggling to validate its summoning.
  • Most gods want to call Orochi "it". While Orochi has breasts and a feminine figure, that just makes it worse.
    • Some might argue that Orochi is more of a reptile than a serpent due of having limbs, but most people think Orochi is more like a serpent with a human torso and limbs than anything else.
  • In a plan called "Orochi Rising", it almost manifested in the Cyberspace as a digital entity composed of multiple bots which were to spread chaos and conflict across the Internet and social media in order to create the ultimate program capable of plunging the entire world into chaos through manipulation of human's feelings. However, the "digital youma Generals" were stopped before the digital Orochi would manifest fully (mainly as 5th Seat was too busy messing with Katsuragi's Twitter account) and it was deleted.

Quasideities

    The Koopa Troopas 
The Koopa Troopas, Mini-Gods of Shell-Optional Turtles
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/koopa_troopa.png
Your average Koopa
  • Quasideities on average
  • Symbol: A red, empty turtle shell
  • Alignment: Depends on the Koopa, but most are Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Turtle Power, Basic Enemies, Anthropomorphic Shift, The Dry Bones And Super Koopas, Adorable Evil Minions, Mascot Mook, Shells As Clothing
  • Domains: Turtles, Mooks, Armies
  • Followers: Toby Tortoise, Crystal Snail, Filbert the Turtle
  • Superiors: Bowser, Bowser Jr, The Koopalings
  • Allies: Goombas, Blooper, Bob-Omb, Lakitu and Spiny, Petey Pirahna, Wreck-It Ralph
  • Enemies: The Toads, Fawful, Dimentio, Shredder, Brock Samson, The Scout
  • Friendly Enemy to: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • Opposes: Mario and Luigi, Princess Peach, Daisy and Yoshi
  • The Koopa King may be mighty, but he still needs plenty of grunts to do his dirty work. One of the most iconic mooks to trouble the Mushroom Kingdom are the Koopa Troopas; small, amiable turtles who've troubled Mario and Luigi since their plumber days as the Shellcreepers. Bowser felt it only fair that his oldest, most loyal group of minions would join him in the Trope Pantheon.
  • Most turtles and tortoises die if their shell is removed, given that it acts as part of their rib cage. Not the Koopas; their shells are simply armor. Some Koopas remove it to fly around with a Super Cape, and their shells can be used as projectiles. When swallowed by Yoshi, different shells have different effects such as temporary fire breath or flight. There are a few subsets of Koopa who don't take off their shell, but they're in the minority.
  • Often seen with Bowser; however, that doesn't mean they're all evil. There have been many a heroic Koopa who care not for the reptilian overlord, such as Koopa the Quick, Koops, Kooper and Kolorado. Even those under Bowser's thumb are pretty sociable off the clock. However, it's the rank and file Koopa which is most well known, and they serve as the Mini-Gods in question.
  • Their name is derived from "kuppa", the Japanese word for the Korean dish Guk. It's unknown how they feel about the meal itself.
    • "Kuppa" is also their king's Japanese name, and it's based on the word "Kappa", which refers to a Japanese turtle youkai. This fact they find more interesting, and a bit confusing. Meanwhile, the Koopa Troopas themselves are called "Nokonoko" in Japanese, and the Paratroopas are called "Patapata".
  • Generally defeated by being stepped on (though a few types of them won't fall for that). As such, they fear The Scout for his jumping ability. And like all mooks, they fear the utter slaughter Brock Samson might inflict on them.
  • They tend to gravitate towards Wreck-It Ralph due to sharing similarities to their own master. It helps that Ralph's a Punch Clock Villain. Koopa Troopas can sometimes be found as enemies in "Fix It Felix, Jr" (when the enemies from Q*Bert aren't available).
  • Initially desired the position of Turtle Power, likely as part of large scheme on Bowser's end. However, the Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles had long since taken the spot, leading to a feud. Still, your average Koopa Troopa does respect their turtle brethren. They'll easily team up against the Shredder, who detests them along with other turtles.
  • Though generally quasideities, there are some demigod Koopas; notably the Magikoopas, Dry Bones, Super Koopas and Hammer Bros. Upon the Koopa Troopas' general ascension, they've been seen pestering the Houses of Magic, Undead, Power and Weapons respectively.
  • One of their kind has been seen working with a Goomba as part of a flash animation on Newgrounds.
  • Serves as the peer to the Goombas, who serve the role of basic, introductory enemies. Surprisingly Wiz and Boomstick decided the two were worthy for a Death Battle. They both lost.
