Pantheon: Treasures
The so-called "Treasures of the Gods" are kept in a large chamber (called, creatively enough, the Vault) several levels below the Main House.note  They have been collected from fictional worlds spanning time and space, and are protected on a rotating schedule by members of the House of Defense. Visitors must pass through GLaDOS's temple and enter a reinforced elevator just behind her altar to see the Treasures up close. Some gods have or can be persuaded to lend passes that in theory allow a visitor in with minimal fuss. Sometimes they even work!

The Companion Cube has been brought in here several times, but it never stays for long. Theologists believe that this is partially because everyone in the Love Pantheon loves it so much, and because some of them claim it can talk. And because Slaanesh, between bouts of apparent disinterest, has been seen eyeing it. Slaanesh is interested in just about everything, but there's just something unnerving about that want-it don't-want it attitude.

Due to its experience in this sort of work, The SCP Foundation has now officially taken over all security duties in the Vault (on most days keeping Daiki Kaito, Carmen Sandiego, Felicia Hardy, and other would-be thieves out) and handles coordination between the members from the House of Defense in the area. However, many deities find this to be a weak excuse to allow Foundation scientists to probe and study the artifacts within. Current efforts are focused on Rings and power batteries of the other lantern corps, the animated and live action Allspark and the remaining megazords.


Narrative Devices

Chekhov's Gun
  • Appearance: Variable. Sometimes, it is an actual gun, usually hanging above a mantelpiece.
  • Alignment: Variable.
  • Portfolio: Plot Devices, Foreshadowing.
  • Domains: Craft, Creation, Knowledge.
  • Among the most mutable treasures available in the Pantheon, Chekhov's Gun can appear as anything, to anyone, anywhere. It is unique in divine artifacts in that when it is introduced, it always gets used. Sometimes the premise where the gun is used can be utterly ridiculous, but it doesn't stop some from attempting to invoke it anyway.
  • Some textbooks make the claim that this artifact was originally a firearm owned by a highly skilled mortal playwright. This firearm did exist, and gave Chekhov's Gun its name and legendary status, but it existed in a less defined state long before this.
  • The gift of using it has passed down through the generations, with different people acquiring full power over it, although any old writer can use it in a limited fashion without permission of the chosen wielder. The current Chosen Wielder of Chekhov's Gun is Joanne Murray.

Shakespeare's Quill (That Which Wrote it First)
  • Appearance: A pure-gold Quill that never runs out of ink
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Every Trope ever
  • Domains: See above
  • With this Quill, Shakespeare laid down on paper all Tropes. As it was He Who Did it First, so was this quill That Which Wrote it First.

The MacGuffin
  • Appearance: Variable.
  • Alignment: Variable.
  • Portfolio: Plot Devices, MacGuffins.
  • Domains: Craft, Creation, Knowledge
  • It is the only device that can compete with Chekhov's Gun in terms of mutability. Some argue it is a Chekhov's Gun that has its safety on or out of ammo. Unlike Chekhov's Gun, which usually seems fairly innocuous in its first appearance, the MacGuffin is important from the start, and many other artifacts inherited its traits.

The Anvil
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral or Chaotic Good, depending on which trope is being used
  • Portfolio: Being Dropped, not always without cause.
  • Domains: Destruction, Agony, Cartoon Violence. Alternatively, Heavy-Handedness, Viewer Depreciation
  • Similiar Artifacts: The Heavy Lourde, The n-Ton Weight, the Author Filibuster
  • In the days of eld [sic], this object was used to create powerful weapons of steel and bronze. In recent years, a secret society of filmmakers called the Anvildroppers decided to use the anvil in a decidedly unorthodox way. The media watchdogs disapproved of this usage, and infiltrated the society, turning various members away. Eventually, The Anvildroppers split into the Orthodox Anvildroppers, and the Ethical Anvildroppers, who made anvils out of words and dropped them on viewers instead of characters. The Orthodox Anvil is a powerful weapon which can warp the laws of physics and bend reality to its will. The Ethical Anvil is an equally powerful tool, though it does mental damage and brainwashing as opposed to physical damage.

The Idiot Ball AKA the Intelligence Dampening Core
  • Appearance: Once a featureless crystal ball. Later revealed to be a highly advanced technological device, created by the finest minds of a generation, pooling their best efforts together, to create the dumbest moron who ever lived.
  • Alignment: Always Stupid (whether Lawful, Chaotic, Good or Evil depends on who's holding it)
  • Portfolio: Malevolent Artifacts, Improbable Behavior, Contrived Stupidity
  • Domains: Charm, Corruption, Mind, Entropy
  • Followers: Billy, who, in true worshipper of the Idiot Ball fashion, does not know that the Idiot Ball is Wheatley, and is sentient, and also does not know that he's worshipping an inanimate object.
  • Similar Artifacts: The Hero Ball, the Villain Ball, the Conflict Ball, the Smart Ball and the Distress Ball.
  • Any character who holds this orb is believed to experience a sharp and immediate drop in IQ. The effect is usually temporary, but if held on too long, it can irreparably damage a person's ability to think logically.
  • Not to be confused with the Nine-ball, an alternative title of Cirno, Goddess of Idiots.
  • It has since been revealed that the Idiot Ball is a living object with a personality and a name- Wheatley - who was sealed in the Vault as punishment for temporarily usurping GLaDOS' position.
  • Despite multiple efforts on GLaDOS' part, it is impossible to keep him contained forever. Pretty much every god in every Pantheon has at least had a brush with the Idiot Ball. Others seem to have a death grip on him at all times.
  • The current Perpetual Holder of the Idiot Ball is Gary Smith, a Disgraced God.

The Omniscient Morality License

The Reset Button

Weapons

The Master Sword (the Goddess Sword, the Blade of Evil's Bane)

The Onyx Blade
  • Appearance: a black claymore-sized sword with three circular red jewels in the hilt
  • Alignment: Depends entirely on the wielder, but tends toward extremes of Good or Evil
  • Portfolio: Huge Swords, Soul Jars, Ancestral Weapons, Canned Evil, Devouring of Souls
  • Domains: Afterlife, Destruction, War
  • Similar Artifacts: Nanatsusaya
  • Gig was sealed in this sword prior to the adventure that led to his Heel-Face Turn and resultant ascension. It's kept here partly as a threat to ensure his good behavior, with rather...limited success.

The BFG-9000

Goldion Crusher
  • Alignment: Probably Lawful Good...
  • Appearance: A giant hammer formed withů three battleships. Approximate size: About as big as a star/sun.
  • Portfolio: Hammers, Burning Spirit, Dangerous Weapons
  • Similar Artifacts: Graf Eisen, The Warhammer of Zillyhoo
  • This is the treasured weapon of Guy Shishioh, used to crush planets, universes and suns. Very dangerous to use, but with infinite courage provided by him and Kamina, Guy can always pull it off just fine.
  • Due to its size, it's condensed into a small black box. Only those who are truly courageous can unleash its true strength, and that person is... usually Guy.

The Arm Cannon
  • Appearance: Varies, usually appears as a massive cannon somehow grafted onto the user's forearm.
  • Alignment: Varies depending on the user.
  • Portfolio: Large guns, Energy Weapons, Laser Beams, Making Reloading Obsolete. It may also acquire many more skills in accordance with how its wielder uses it.
  • Similar Artifacts: The Power Fist. Almost all arm or hand-based weaponry not derived from the Power Fist take their cues from the Arm Cannon.
  • While some other weapons in the Pantheon are only able to be wielded by a chosen few, the Arm Cannon and many similar weapons are used by a variety of characters, most famously Megatron, Samus Aran, and various incarnations of Mega Man. It is believed that the original Arm Cannon is the one housed in the vault, and the three mentioned wielders are given the privilege of using replicas designed by the Pantheon's craftsmen to fit their fighting styles.

The Sparda
  • Appearance: A curved, two-handed scalene backsword with a rather disturbingly organic appearance if one looks at it closely.
  • Allignment: While the Sparda itself is a force for Good, it has a habit of being taken by those of Evil heart and abused for their own aims.
  • Portfolio: Plot-Important Weapons, Swords Passed Down in the Family, Artifacts of Power, Repeated Use, Infinity Plus One Swords
  • The Sparda has immense demonic power, which often makes it a target for those of evil intent. Dante stashed it here after he reminded Trish, its former wielder, that she's already nearly gotten the world destroyed once thanks to carelessly bargaining it off, and that really, if she really needs it she can always pick it up from here.
  • Dante and Trish deny all accusations that the Sparda looks anything like Soul Edge. Honest!

The Gravity Gun (The Zero-Point Energy Field Manipulator, "The Claw")

The Chainsaw (The Great Communicator)

The Power Fist
  • Appearance: Heavy metal gauntlet crackling with energy-automatically resizes itself to fit the prospective wearer, from unaugmental human to Humongous Mecha.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Power Fist, Rule of Cool, Talk to the Fist, Megaton Punch
  • Domains: Destruction, Wrath, Strength
  • Allies: The Chainsaw
  • Comes with optional chainsaw (for tank killing) and electrified claw (for coolness) attachments in its basic form.
  • Has been known to appear in other forms, especially when its wearer has gone berserk. Suspected to be able to mimic the appearance of the owner's fist with unprecedented accuracy, allowing the owner to strike with much greater force than is possible otherwise (see Megaton Punch above, but not the Power Glove below).

The God Hand
  • Appearance: An arm with bracers designed with skulls.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Power Fist, Rule of Cool, Talk to the Fist, Megaton Punch, Punching Across The Room, Invulnerable Attack
  • Domains: Destruction, Strength, Violence... so much violence
  • Allies: Everyone of the incarnations of the Power Fist.
  • After Gene's ascension, he decided, to the desbelief of the gods present, to rip off his left arm! and put it in the vault. The gods were... amazed that it was really a real arm. Orihime Inoue quickly healed the arm. When they asked why the hell did he do that, he said because one arm's enough to kick so much ass.
  • Since the one wearing the God Hand is granted improbable Kung Fu abilities that rival Bruce Lee and a brief moment of Invulnerability, the Council of Shadows have tried to get their hands on one of the hands. However, there's two problems:
    • It was kept in the farthest region of the House of Treasures, in which the 501st has put more security. Also, Bruce Lee and Ryu have been asked to protect it. Really bad luck for them.
    • Taking the remaining hand from Gene would be suicide, since he's used with fighting gang battles, robots, demons and Eldrich Abobinations, and let's not get started when he unleashes it. Then again, Xanatos has started planning something...This won't end well.

The Masamune
  • Appearance: A sword of the finest craftsmanship possible, usually a katana or other Japanese sword, but at least once as a European-style broadsword.
  • Alignment: Varies depending on who wields it
  • Portfolio: Public Domain Artifacts, BFSs, Ninjas
  • Domains: War
  • The Masamune is the ultimate sword of Ninjas, and any who wield it will receive destructive power beyond imagination. At first it was left out in the open to be found and used by innumerable heroes, but after that loony Sephiroth nearly broke his way into Greater God-hood with it, the sword was taken from him and sealed away here.
  • Has a twin sword called Muramasa, which is currently owned by Chaud Blaze and Protoman.EXE. Another copy, the crimson red Murasama Blade was in possession of a Brazilian swordsman named Samuel Rodrigues, who inherited the sword as part of a family tradition. After his employment at Desperado Enforcement LLC., he converted it into a High Frequency Blade for use against cyborgs. This sword was later inherited by Rodrigues' rival, Raiden, after their final duel in the Colorado Badlands, wherin Raiden was successful in defeating and killing Samuel.

The Elder Wand
  • Alignment: Has seen all alignments, and varies depending on who currently uses it
  • Portfolio: Harry Potter, Artifact of Doom
  • Domains: Magic, War
  • The Elder Wand is an almost unbeatable wand. Whoever holds it will be granted an incredibly augment to their magical abilities.
  • The problem, however, is that to gain the wand's "allegiance", you must either kill or otherwise defeat its current master.
  • Should someone die of natural causes while in possession of the wand, never having been defeated, its power will be broken. It will then become little more than a fancy piece of wood.

A Blue Spiny Shell
  • Appearance: A blue-colored turtle shell withgratuitous spikes. Wings are sometimes seen on it
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Seeking Out Only The Guy In Front, Ignoring the CPU, Evil Things That Come From Evil Turtles
  • Domains: Chaos, Competition, City
  • The Koopa shell is one of the more controversial artifacts stored within the treasure house. Eternal losers, such as Dan Hibiki and Glass Joe say it's necessary to maintain competitive balance against "that overpowered Mario guy". Mario, on the other hand, always shouts "Oh, no!" whenever he sees one careening his way, and the other Greater Gods, such as Kratos (and social Darwinists like Emperor Charles), decry its existence entirely, as it "discourages victory and gives unearned power to the hopelessly weak."
  • For the longest time, the Blue Shell was fortunately only seen on race tracks with small appearance in basketball court and baseball field. However, after some evidence that it will show up in the next Smash tournament, many gods have feared that it may leak to more places than that.

Laevateinn
  • Appearance: a twisted black staff, with two tips resembling spearheads (or a devil's tail). When activated, a massive fiery sword that leaves a trail of fireballs in its wake.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Really big swords, weapons made of fire, energy weapons
  • Domains: Fire, Destruction, Bullet Hell
  • Owners of Similar Artifacts: Signum
  • Originally the weapon of the wicked Norse God Surtur, the Laevatein now exists in many variations. This particular version of it, while technically a Treasure of the Gods, is in the possession of Ax-Crazy Badass Adorable Extraordinaire, Flandre Scarlet. And she would like to see the person who would try to take it away from her and lock it in some vault. Those who tried are now black smears on the floor.

The Baseball Bat

Anakin Skywalker's Second Lightsaber (Your Father's Lightsaber)
  • Appearance: A cylindrical silvery-hilted lightsaber with a blue blade
  • Alignment: True Neutral. It's entirely up to the user.
  • Portfolio: Ancestral Weaponry, Laser Blades, Elegant Weapons For A More Civilized Age
  • A weapon with an involved and sordid past, this was built by the God of Heroes before Anakin became Vader and Carrot stepped up to take his job. It's been passed around a great deal. Obi-Wan gave it to Luke, who lost it and his hand. The Emperor recovered both, and passed it to Joruus C'baoth, who created Luuke and armed him with it. Luke reclaimed it and gave it to Mara. On her death, she installed it here.
  • Anakin's Lightsaber represents the legacy, good and bad, that comes with accepting the Call to Adventure.
  • Obi-Wan, of the House of Knowledge, wrote the inscription for it.
    "This was the formal weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. More skill than simple sight was required for its use. An elegant weapon. It was a symbol as well. Anyone can use a blaster or a fusioncutter´┐Żbut to use a lightsaber well was a mark of someone a cut above the ordinary."

The Kingdom Key
  • Appearance: A giant skeleton key that inexplicably has a sharp edge. Can also morph into other forms with different attributes, but always maintains the basic appearance of a key.
  • Alignment: Depends on the user. Usually some variation of Good, though a handful of Evil-aligned characters have been able to use it.
  • Portfolio: Improbable Weaponry, Impossibly Cool Weaponry, Light
  • Donated by: Sora
  • As only Sora, Roxas and Xion are able to wield the Keyblade in its natural "Kingdom Key" state, and none of them ever gave their Keyblades to the Vault, theories abound on where this one came from. Revelations from re:coded have lead to some speculation that this may not even be a real Keyblade.
  • Voltaire ascended and brought along his own keyblade: The Vorutanian Keyblade. He and Sora went into a brief battle with their respective weapons where, surprisingly, it ended up in a draw. Sora has decided to train Voltaire to use his keyblade more often so that he can help fight off against Heartless attacks.

The Monado
  • Appearance: A large red sword with rounded edges and variable-length Laser Blade.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Well, Shulk's is, at least. Zanza's is another matter.)
  • Portfolio: Legendary Weapons, Laser Blades, Combat Clairvoyance, Danger Sense
  • Donated By: Shulk
  • The wielder of the Monado is capable of seeing a short time into the future, often revealing when a companion is in danger of grievous bodily harm. When "activated", the Monado's extendable energy blade is capable of slicing through metal with ease, making it a very effective weapon against mechanical opponents.

The Wailing Dark
  • Appearance: A large blade with a brown sheath that has the resemblance of a Katana.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral due to its power
  • Portfolio: Impossibly Huge Sword, Size Shifter, Wave Motion Sword, Planet Stabber.
  • This is a weapon that came with Asura upon his ascension. Depite being a weapon, its sheer size (380,000 KILOMETERS) and power (said length making it strong enough to stab through the planet Earth itself), it was decided by the GUAG that it should be put into Maximum Security just to make sure no one else can learn how to make it extend to that size.
  • Due to the fact that its former owner Augus has not ascended (as of now), Asura made sure that it is in Maximum Security at all times, and he made sure that trust worthy swordmaster deities wouldn't let anyone take it from where it is sealed.
  • Augus has recently ascended to the Combat Pantheon. Since he doesn't draw Wailing Dark in battle often, he lets Asura keep it in the Maximum Security vault. He does use it on some occasions, such as when he impaled Gilgamesh through the head with it because he was annoying.

The Ebony Blade
  • Appearance: A black dai-katana
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: The Corrupter, Evil Weapon
  • Throughout history, the Daedric Prince Mephala has goaded many mortals into performing heinous deeds (such as assassination, murder, and all-around chaos) and rewarded them with this corrupt katana.
  • When the Dragonborn ascended, he had the blade with him. Although it tried to convince him to murder his friends to increase the blade's power, the Dovahkiin wised up and handed the sword over to the Vault. However, there are rumors that it will manipulate its way out of the Vault soon...

Soul Calibur
  • Appearance: Varies, depending on the wielder; currently, it is a blue shortsword
  • Alignment: Stupid Good
  • Portfolio: Knight Templar, Pure Is Not Good, Unholy Holy Sword, Utopia Justifies the Means
  • Once thought to be the Sword of Salvation destined to eradicate Soul Edge, it turned out to be a Knight Templar whose ideal of salvation involved freezing the world in crystalline ice. Siegfried and his successor Patroklos determined that such a sword needed to be sealed away for good, so it was turned over to the Maximum Security vault. (Siegfried's trying to round up Soul Edge so it can be placed in the Vault as well.)

Nox Nyctores
  • Appearance: The weapons themselves
  • Alignment: Destructive
  • Portfolio: Artifacts of Doom, Evil Weapons, Powered by a Forsaken Child
  • Domains: Destruction, Emotion, Madness
  • The Nox Nyctores are a set of 10 weapons that grant its user awesome power but come at a cost of amplifying their psychosis and altering their mental state.
    • Of the ten, seven of them (one of which is another copy of an existing weapon, making the list technically six) are held by differents gods in the Pantheonnote . The other four are safekept here note .
  • The weapons were also among the items that The PAYDAY Crew robbed during their heist.
  • Under monitored conditions (mainly because Khrima trying to steal it), most gods are able to fight against Take-Mikazuchi. As you can guess, it is not an easy task to do.

Books

The Death Note
  • Appearance: A black book with the words "Death Note" scratched on it
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Artifacts of Doom and Death, Murder Weapons.
  • Domains: Death, Hunt, Planning, The Abyss
  • This note holds the names of all mortals destined to meet their death, including details on exactly when and how the victim is going to die. There are very strict rules that one must follow in order to properly use the note, but these rules are occasionally subverted by more cunning gods. One must take care not to overuse it, as excessive use of the Note can drive its user mad.
  • The current owner of the Death Note is Light Yagami.

The Demonic Compendium (The Persona Compendium)
  • Appearance: A book with varying symbols on it. Sometimes a computer, sometimes a goddess-like figure, sometimes a demonic magatama.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Making Lots of New Friends, The Mythology Kitchen Sink, Knowledge of Creatures
  • Domains: Magic, Otherness
  • Similar Artifacts: The Pokedex
  • Donated by Naoki Kashima upon arrival to the Pantheons, the Demonic Compendium is a comprehensive text detailing every single demon, spirit, or god to ever exist in the pantheons of Real Life. On top of that, it is also a vessel by which a properly trained summoner can call them forth as allies. This makes it quite popular reading with the Houses of Magic and Knowledge; the former likes to examine the summoning rituals and the demons themselves, while the latter likes the stories of their deeds and tribulations.
  • Further pages were added with the help of Flynn, who added Burroughs' and Mido's demon data to the Compendium. The book/computer/figure itself keeps growing as summoners and Persona users add their experiences and knowledge into it.
  • Mido is one of the few alowed to possess a digital copy of both the Compendium and the summoning protocols.

The Neverending Story
  • Appearance: A thick book bound by golden silk, bearing the image of AURYN upon its cover.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Writing Reality
  • Domains: Fate, Knowledge
  • Similar Artifacts: The Book of Prophecy
  • This book does not reside within the chamber with the others, but is instead being constantly written by The Old Man Of Wandering Mountain. The book within the chamber is an avatar of the true book. The nature of the true book is reality itself. Everything that happens is written into the book by the Old Man, and everything that he writes into it happens. However, it cannnot be rewritten, and nothing can be changed by writing what does not happen.
  • May or may not have some relation to Destiny's book.

The Future Diaries
  • Appearance: Cellphones, though one is a scroll, another is a coloring book, and yet another is a voice recorder.
  • Alignment: Varies between each of their respective users
  • Portfolio: Readings which predict the future
  • Granted the power by the one known as Deus, those who are given the diaries are put into a gauntlet to kill one another in order to become a god. Depending on the gods observations and the style of the diaries, the Future Diary reflects it in that way. For example: Yukiteru's diary allows him to see everything around him while Yuno's predicts everything that happens to her precious Yuki.

The Thievius Raccoonus
  • Appearance: A book with the words "Thievius Raccoonus" and a raccoon head underneath.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good/True Neutral
  • Domains: Ancestry, Family, Thieving
  • The Thievius Raccoonus is passed down from one Cooper to another, filled with the techniques of all Cooper ancestors on being sneaky. Bentley gave it to the vault to ensure that no one could steal its secrets and also to keep an eye on it after someone tried to rewrite its history.
  • Upon the merging of several universes by a being called Polygon Man, Nathan Drake discovered the Raccoonus near a shore side bar, and attempted to uncover what secrets the texts contained. The latest Cooper descendant, Sly, would go on to fight Drake over it. Whoever currently possesses the Raccoonus is unknown.

Magic Artifacts

The Chaos Emeralds
  • Appearance: Seven variably-colored, variably-shaped crystals
  • Alignment: Always Chaotic. Whether they are Good or Evil depends on who's using them at the time.
  • Portfolio: Mineral MacGuffins
  • Domains: Chaos, Destiny
  • Similar Artifacts: The Dragon Balls, the Sonichu Balls Crystals (incredibly cheap knockoffs of both aforementioned items)
  • These Emeralds take on variable forms, and have the ability to bestow super transformation upon anyone (except Tails) who holds all seven of them at one time. So far, the only gods to channel their full power have been Shadow and Sonic the Hedgehogs. No one else can get close to them, because they are always scattered to random corners of the world once every year.
    • Like the Dragon Balls, there are actually multiple sets of Chaos Emeralds. The set held by the Pantheon was originally found on Angel Island. Other sets, such as the Super Emeralds, Sol Emeralds, and so on, are kept in hidden separate locations for fear of what might happen if they were all together.

Holy Materia

The Crimson Behelit
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Appearance: An egg, covered in human facial features
  • Portfolio: Blood Pacts, Despair, Demonic Transformation
  • Similar Artifacts: The Jewel of Four Souls
  • Guts turned this artifact over to the Pantheon on his ascension, informing them that if used properly, it could instantly raise an evil mortal into godhood. It's hard to tell if this has happened before, but it is known that the behelit only works when the holder is at their emotional nadir - that is, the behelit takes a mortal at the lowest point in his or her life and gives them enough power to inflict misery on everyone else. It's also hard to tell if the behelit is unique. Gods who are concerned about this are making an increased effort to keep their followers happy, or at least content.

The Love Berry Rod (Ucha, R2003)
  • Appearance: A plasticy magic wand with strawberries and bunnies on it; a talking strawberry robot with the head and limbs of a rabbit.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (really Lawful Neutral)
  • Portfolio: Magic Wands, Belongings of Canon Sues, Weapons that Turn Into Weasel Mascots
  • Similar Artifacts: We have no idea.
  • This... thing was confiscated from Berii Shirayuki when she was thrown from grace in hopes that it would handicap her inevitable attempt to hold another hostile takeover. It is kept in a soundproof box in the corner of the treasure room, as everybody who walked by got tired of it snarking at them.

The Dominion Jewel
  • Appearance: A faceted purple gem, palm sized. On Earth, it would be enshrined in a museum and marveled over; in the Pantheon, where perfect egg-sized jewels are easily obtained, it doesn't look like much.
  • Alignment: True Neutral.
  • Portfolio: MacGuffins, Oddly Colored Stones which Do Unspecified Things
  • The Dominion Jewel can only be used by one with "the heart of a king", which is a bit of a puzzler. It doesn't always work with leaders, natural or otherwise. It tends to ignore whether or not someone has royal blood. Determination seems to be a factor. The fact that it is so picky about its users means that most gods and visitors to the Pantheon aren't particularly interested.
  • In the right hands, it can do many things. It has been used to call schools of fish and flocks of birds and caravans of merchants to a seaport city. It's been used to restrain an earthquake. It also allows a user to command plant life with great dexterity. Mostly, however, it seems to significantly boost the power of its wielder.
  • The downside is that when it is used, the things - gods, mortals, animals, plants - around it go sterile, and for a wider radius the more magic is spent. The sterility does wear off after a year or so, but in a feudal society this is the kiss of death.

The Elements of Harmony
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: The Power of Friendship, rainbows, magical jewelry
  • Domains: Friendship, Rainbows, Magic
  • Princess Celestia moved the Elements of Harmony here once every one of their Bearers was deified in hopes that the heavy security in the Pantheon might prevent another Discord fiasco.
  • The Elements of Harmony can only be activated by having all of their 6 bearers (Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy) together, and united in friendship, otherwise they will fizzle.
  • The Elements of Harmony have in the past demonstrated the power to topple beings of Godlike power, therefore needless to say the security on them is pretty high. It would have been even higher, but thankfully it is unlikely villains would be able to use them for ill intent. For the Grand United Alliance of Good, the Elements are an ace in the hole, potentially presenting a threat to even Melkor himself!
  • The Jewels are merely the conduit for the power. The Elements themselves are within their bearers.
  • The Elements were used once to remove Discord from the pantheon. Afterwards, Applejack stepped down, though she can still be called in once more. However, she has recently ascended into a different position.
    • The Elements were also used to release him from his stone prison and return him to the Pantheon. He has been in good behavior.

The Pure Hearts

Miracle Lights

Vehicles

The TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space)
  • Alignment: True Neutral (although possibly Chaotic Good)
  • Portfolio: Time Travel Devices, Bigger on the Inside
  • Domains: Space, Time, Travel
  • Similar Artifacts: the DeLorean, The Denliners, the Epoch
  • There are many time travel devices known as TARDIS, but there is a common conception that there is only one of the TARDIS, which is used by the Doctor himself, in all of his incarnations. The devices are only operable by recognized Time Lords, and they allow the user to visit any time period (within reasonable limits) by programming its destination.
  • Although the standard TARDISes are capable of altering their outer appearances to blend flawlessly into their current surroundings, the object considered by many to be the "true" TARDIS is unique in that it's outer shell is permanently locked into the form of a blue police telephone call box as could be found in Britain in the 1950s and 1960s. Although the Doctor has on occasion managed to overcome this and temporarily change the outer shell, the TARDIS will normally revert to this default setting very quickly.
  • The TARDIS is sentient, albeit in such a fashion that is beyond the understanding of most of the sentient beings in the universe. While the way 'she' tends to operate in a fashion that is incomprehensible to many and often appears to be simply unreliable, it has been noted that she doesn't usually take the Doctor to where he wants to go she has a tendency to deposit the Doctor precisely where he is needed.

The 1967 Chevy Impala (The Metallicar)

Oliver the Opel
  • Appearance: Small, boxy pale-yellow two-door sedan
  • Portfolio: Vehicle and Driving Tropes
  • Domains: Travel, Anthropomorphism
  • Clarkson has not yet placed the Opel Kadett A in the far lower corner of the "Not Cool" side of the Cool Wall. Either way, the model, like all Opels is naturally cooler than its' Vauxhall equivalent.
  • Not under any circumstances to be confused with Oliver Oken, who is not, technically, a car.

The SSV Normandy

The Batmobile

Sweet Tooth
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Evil Ice Cream Trucks, Vehicular Combat, Monster Clowns, Vehicles That Run On Pure Nightmare Fuel
  • Domains: Destruction, Night, Fear
  • Driver: Charles "Needles" Kane
  • Its distorted jingle is known to send chills throughout the air wherever it drives. Its driver is even more scary. Don't ask him for ice cream...you won't live long enough to regret it. He hates children...he especially hates children.
  • Just for the record, Sweet Tooth is the truck, not the name of the guy driving it. That guy's name is Needles Kane.... whose serial killer name is "Sweet Tooth".
  • Is capable of transforming into what Optimus Prime describes as a mockery of Cybertronian technology. Mr. Kane has used it to silence Optimus on numerous occasions.

A Baneblade
  • Appearance: Gargantuan tank with eleven separate weapon systems
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Tank Goodness, "Eleven Barrels of Hell"
  • Domains: Destruction, Law, Machine
  • Overall Caretaker: Governor-General Vance Stubbs.
  • One Mars-pattern Baneblade super-heavy tank of the Imperial Guard, taken from Vance Stubbs' personal stock for when gods need to make an entrance. Supposedly built from the finest and most efficient of the Kaurava Planetary Cluster's forgeries.
  • Lord-Castellan Ursarkar E. Creed loaned a hundred of these from Stubbs, which he used to flatten the 501st with a surprise attack. Creed has yet to return them.
    • Sadly, at least 3 of them were wiped out after Anavel Gato made his appearance the House of War by nuking both the 501st and the Imperial Guard.

A MS-06 Zaku II
  • Appearance: A roughly 55-foot tall Mobile Suit with asymmetrical shoulder plating
  • Alignment: True Neutral (though its users run the gamut on alignments)
  • Portfolio: Real Robots, Mass-Produced Machines, Mecha-Mooks
  • Domains: Machine, Army, War
  • Many of the suits that have come from this design were piloted by mostly inexperienced pilots, save one, who painted his red to stand out.

The Kickboat

The Great Sacred Treasure
  • Appearance: A Humongous Mecha made of pure orichalcum that can fly.
  • Alignment: True Neutral (considering only Pit's allowed to use it though, probably Lawful Good.)
  • Portfolio: Laser Blade, Flying Mecha, Wave Motion Gun.
  • Domains: Machine, Travel, Order, War
  • Even if it is damaged, it can change form and adapt, allowing for continuous use without any repairing. Its Laser Blade can slice through a Greater God, as Hades can attest to, and the Wave Motion Gun at full power can destroy even a Greater God and potentially damage an Overdeity with one shot, again, as Hades can vouch for.
  • Pit's only allowed to use it holidays. However, the Treasure can now be seen in the 4th Super Smash Bros Tournament if Pit ever gets his hands on a Smash Ball. BEWARE.

Miscellaneous

A Large Chunk of Kryptonite

The Green Lantern Ring and Central Power Battery
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (Good tendencies)
  • Appearance: A green ring
  • Portfolio: Flexibility of Abilities, Stringent Rules, The Inverse Law of Utility and Lethality
  • Similar Artifacts: The Death Note, Various super-powers, the other six emotion/color Rings
  • Serves as the antithesis to both the One Ring and Kryptonite, due to its benevolent nature and its lack of randomness, respectively. The Green Lantern Ring is kept in an emergency box next to the vault holding the One Ring in case somebody is foolish enough to wear it.
  • It can only be used by someone with great willpower who can overcome great fear. This is just as well, as on the hand of a user it is only limited by his or her imagination.

The Super Mushroom

The Visualizer

The World Heavyweight Championship
  • Appearance: A big gold belt
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Tournaments, Being the Best
  • Similar Artifacts: The MacGuffin
  • Domains: Competition, Glory, Corruption
  • Forged by Ric Flair in the fires of Parts Unknown, the World Heavyweight Championship Belt is the symbol of excellence in battle. The person who holds it, whether he won it by hook or by crook, has the right to call himself the greatest fighter in the world. However, it inspires in its owner a possessive mania, gradually crowding out other goals and ideals until continuing to hold it becomes one's only motivation. Once it has taken root in its owner's mind, its owner will stoop to any low to keep it. Only the strongest-willed (and/or most popular) can resist its siren song and remain good and upstanding while holding it.

Sari's Key
  • Appearance: A white key that has the ability to heal autobots
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Healing Items
  • Domains: Healing, Useful Items
  • Similar Artifacts: The Matrix, The Allspark
  • Was originally in the form of a swiping card.

The Power Glove

Alucard's Cape
  • Appearance: A kickass black cape with a glowing, red turnover.
  • Alignment: Neutral to Chaotic Good.
  • Portfolio: Castlevania, Badass Longcoats (Well, actually, capes)
  • Domains: Craft, Magic
  • Alucard's cape bestows a hefty bonus on most stats and looks awesome to boot. When Alucard retired from looking like his father, Dracula, and took on the government agent persona Genya Arikado, he abandoned his old look. Now he only rarely comes in to the vault to pick up his old cape to play around for old times sake.

Money in the Bank
  • Appearance: An aluminum Halliburton briefcase.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Showdown at High Noon, This Is Something He's Got to Do Himself, You Kill It, You Bought It
  • Similar Artifacts: The World Heavyweight Championship, Chekhov's Gun
  • Domains: Competition, Chaos
  • The bearer of Money in the Bank may "cash in" at any time of his or her choosing, using it to challenge any god to one-on-one combat at any time, and the God must accept, regardless of his current physical condition, lest they forfeit the battle and suffer the consequences. If the Money in the Bank-bearer is then victorious, they themself becomes God of the same level as the God that was defeated, with portfolio and powers appropriate to their own personality, and the defeated God becomes a mortal. Regardless of the outcome of the battle, Money in the Bank disappears, and cannot be found until March of the next year. Each year, the Gods attempt to find and capture Money in the Bank before a mortal can discover it, and secure it in their treasure chamber.
    • The briefcase has now split into two and usually appears in July, vanishing if not cashed in by March.

Glass Joe's Headgear
  • Appearance: A padded head harness, colored red
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Sudden Competence, Immune to Fists, Patronizing Assistance
  • Domains: War, Protection.
  • When Glass Joe ascended, he placed his headgear in the vault and hung up his gloves, content in the knowledge he could never win. Wizardmon believes he managed to reroute the headgear from the vault into his own hands... but what he got was a weaker, green copy modeled after the true headgear, one of many given to those who just plain suck. He hasn't gotten the joke yet.

Starite
  • Appearance: Yellow stones shaped like five-pointed stars, radiating holy light.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Star-shaped Things People Collect For No Discernable Reason
  • Domains: Celestia, Magic.
  • Maxwell is obsessed with these stones, to the point of forgoing all other activities to hunt for them. Members of the Pantheon often promise to give them to him in reward for completing simple, pointless tasks, then take them back to hide them again. While some might see this as needlessly cruel, the Pantheon views this as an essential measure in order to keep Maxwell from realizing his true potential and utterly upheaving the nature of reality.
    • Maxwell eventually told why he searches for them: they're made from doing good deeds, and his original search was to save his sister from a petrification spell caused by their father to teach him a lesson.

An L-Block
  • Appearance: Four small squares that form the shape of the letter "L" (or "J", when flipped over)
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Building Blocks, Inanimate Objects, Dark Horse Victors
  • Domains: City, Creation, Destruction
  • Is believed to have been a refugee from the old Soviet bloc (no pun intended), due to it always disappearing whenever there were improvements to be made on the Kremlin.
  • The letter "I" is its greatest enemy.
  • Is shaped like a boot to kick your ass.

Ye Flask
  • Appearance: A monochrome Florence flask
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Supposedly Unobtainable Items, MacGuffins
  • Domains: Water
  • No one knows how ye flask initially appeared in yon treasure room. Attempts by all (including Thy Dungeonman) to retrieve it had proven quite difficult. Rumor has it that the reason nobody can get ye flask in the first place is because ye flask is actually a load-bearing flask, and its removal would spell the complete destruction of the temple.

Delicious Fruit

The Bat Credit Card

(Additional) Protoss Pylons

The Ore
  • Appearance: A large rock of green, shiny ore, divided into pieces.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: The Deitifying Material, Green Rocks, Deities Fighting Each Other Until One Survives.
  • Domains: Combat, Immortality.
  • Similar Artifact: The +ii emiteer.
  • Be careful what you pray for, this large Ore from a spaceship that crashed lands to the Earth is the reason why the Pantheon is formed in first place. Before its formation, many individuals (humans, aliens, animals and mythical beings) found pieces of Ore which transforms them into the very Deities you know in the entire Pantheon.
  • It is rumored that the Money in the Bank contains pieces of Ore, which serves to Deitifying a winning mortal or gaining level to the existing Deity, at cost of the loser returning to the mortal world.
  • The owner of this piece of Ore is Exor, who's not yet deitified to the Pantheon.

Viridi's Reset Bombs
  • Appearance: An absolutely massive, tear-drop shaped mass of bramble.
  • Alightment: Chaotic Good, as per the intentions of its creator.
  • Portfolio: Gaia's Vengeance, Colony Drop.
  • A payload of pure Gaia's Vengeance, the Reset Bombs hit the earth with enough force to wipe out armies that could number in the thousands. Upon impact, the reset bomb turns into a massive forest of vines and bramble that rapidly break down manmade structures, turning entire cultivated countrysides and cities into natural forests within the span of a mere few days. Viridi used these to initiate a campaign of genocide against humanity, but only successfully dropped one before Pit destroyed the factory that produces them.
  • Viridi kept a stockpile hidden after her factory was destroyed, just in case something so destructive occurred that using the reset bomb would be worth it; but due to her temper, "Worth it", could stem from something extremely petty, and thus when the other Gods found out about it, they forced her to put it among the treasures. The only time the gods would be willing to allow Viridi free access to the remaining stockpile would be at the very start of the final battle between good and evil, when the armies are still separated and no forces of good would be caught in the impact.

The Mystery Food Recipes (X and Omega)
  • Appearance: A piece of paper with ingredient for the legendary Mystery Foods.
  • Alignment: Potentially Chaotic Evil.
  • Portfolio: Creations of a Lethal Chef, something no sane person would ever eat willingly.
  • A misguided attempt by Chie and Yukiko to treat Yu and Yosuke to a worthwhile meal on a camping trip. The curry turned out to be something so monstrously bad that it knocked them both out cold. After Yu ascended, MFX began circulating around the pantheon, it became a bit of a test of courage to try to down it, so far only Pac-Man and Andrew Zimmern have kept it down, mostly due to their bizarre palettes.
  • As if the first attempt wasn't bad enough, Chie's ascension unites all the girls on the investigation team at long last, and they were determined to right their past wrong by making beef stew... but forgot to include Naoto, the only person who bothers to actually take the time to learn how food is made. The resulting product, dubbed "Mystery Food Omega", began to drive the house of food into a frenzy as if the house collectively looked directly into the eyes of madness itself. Only Andrew Zimmern was able to devour MFO without being driven to near-terminally ill sickness.
  • Following the incident with MFO, it was decided for the good of the pantheon that the recipe Chie wrote down be locked away in the treasures, never to be released again. Though this doesn't stop Monokuma and Enoshima (Who described it as "Eatable Despair" and claimed it to be her new favorite food) from trying to find a way to get it.
  • Due to the absolute horror that what Tsubaki Yayoi called "Mystery Dinner" can invoke on the house, extra security measures were added to instantly teleport away one Noel Vermillion should she ever get within 100 meters of the vault where this recipe is stored.
  • Before its sealing, whenever someone passed out because of consuming this item, there would be this voice that chimes in (and it's also on the label in front of the seal):

Cursed Videotapes
  • Appearance: A collection of unmarked, ordinary-looking video cassettes.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Artifact of Doom, Haunted Technology, Schmuck Bait, Your Days Are Numbered, Brown Note, Ominous Visual Glitch.
  • Created by Sadako Yamamura and her parallel counterparts Samara Morgan and Park Eun-Suh to spread their wrath against the world.
  • Each tape is a little bit different, but would kill whoever watched it seven days later unless they copied it. The original tape created by Sadako containted a virus that would kill someone via a heart attack/tumour, but would also cause a Mystical Pregnancy that would lead to Sadako's resurrection as an Enfant Terrible and then age rapidly to an adult. And this happens every time two people who watch the tape make love.
  • Bannned from the House of Technology for obvious reasons.
  • All copies of Sadako's tapes were recorded over with episodes of The Clangers.
  • Also banned from being posted or shared onto YouTube.

Maximum Security

The One Ring
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Destructive Artifacts, Corruption of Souls
  • Domains: Evil, Destruction, Corruption
  • Similar Artifacts: The Necronimicon, Horcruxes, Soul Edge
  • Because one cannot simply walk into Mordor, the One Ring is kept in one of the most secure vaults so neither hero nor villain can access it. Every member of the Pantheon must be present to unlock the vault, as each one only knows a single digit to the combination. It is rumored that if Sauron should ever reclaim the ring, he would gain the power to take control of the Main House and, by extent, usurp Melkor.

The Games of Divinity
  • Appearance: Unknown. The Games are the most heavily restricted Artifact in the Vault, so very few have ever seen them, and those who have aren't talking.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Addictions That Incapacitate Even The Gods, Euphoria, Games For Which Wars Have Been Fought (Or Have They?), Negligence and Abuse
  • Domains: Charm, Competition, Dream, Madness, Pleasure, Trickery
  • One of the terms for the Celestial Incarnae's entry into the Pantheon was their rehabilitation from the Games and the confinement of the Games in the most secure corner of the Vault, where no one, even especially those who knew them best, could access them. One might wonder: who demanded these terms, the Pantheon or the Incarnae? The answer: both.
  • Despite their complete lack of any offensive application whatsoever, they are recognized by the SCP as the single greatest threat to the Pantheon in the Vault. Accordingly, no deity, under any circumstances, is permitted direct access to the Games, for fear of causing them to forever abandon their responsibilities in favor of the euphoria offered by playing the Games.

SCP-682
  • Appearance: A huge, unkillable lizard thing.
  • Alignment: Omnicidal Evil
  • Portfolio: Adaptive Ability, Kaiju, Made of Iron, Nigh Invulnerable
  • Domains: Evil, Omnicide, OMNOMNOM, Universal Target Practice
  • The gods that founded the entire SCP Foundation keep this contained. Seriously, even Sauron won't approach this thing.
  • There are a few Gods in the Pantheon who may have the power to get rid of SCP-682 for good. However, most of them won't do it due to either being evil or for mysterious reasons unfathomable to lesser beings.

The Matrix
  • Appearance: An Orange container with a shiny blue crystal inside and two handles, and absolutely not the machine that controls us all. Or a Toyota station wagon, for that matter.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Good, Creation, Destruction, Knowledge
  • Similar Artifacts: the Allspark, Sari's Key (listed above), which taps into its limitless power
  • This device is kept on hand in case Unicron turns his attention to the pantheons.
  • Has the ability to summon Stan Bush to sing "You Got The Touch" whenever opened.
  • Primus had this shipped secretly out of its usual spot in the depths of his body. It's just safer here- still in his body (as with the rest of the Pantheon), but with much better safeguards. True, fewer beings would have had any access to it if he'd kept it in the Main House, but he doesn't trust some of the deities there.

The Omnitrix
  • Appearance: A watch with the Plumbers' symbol on the face.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Clingy MacGuffin, Transformation Trinket, Green Lantern Ring.
  • Domains: Chaos, Nature
  • The Omnitrix can store data on as many as 10,000 different species and allows the wearer to transform into any of them. Well, sometimes. It's kind of fickle like that.
    • Ben has stated that the one donated to the vault is the 'prototype' that Azmuth created and that he has been currently been given the 'completed' Omnitrix.
  • In the right hands, it can be a useful tool to provide shapeshifting power. In the wrong hands, it can destroy the entire universe.

The Four Crystals
  • Alignment: Varies based on user and crystal, but usually some variant of Good
  • Portfolio: Elemental Powers, Unimaginable Power That Doesn't Help You Nearly As Much As It Should, Cosmic Keystones
  • Domains: Balance, Magic, Heroism, Water, Fire, Earth, and Wind
  • There are actually several more crystals out there belonging to other worlds, but, like the Chaos Emeralds, the Gods fear what might happen if all were placed together. The rest are all back on their homeworlds in isolated chambers guarded by hordes of monsters and various semimagical kingdoms. It should also be noted that the Good-inclined gods would rather not take what may as well be the core of the world, and cause planets to topple like a house of cards.
  • This particular set was donated by Rydia, whose world (if you count the moon) had three extra sets, and so could afford missing a Cosmic Keystone or four.
  • Depositing a set of four of these babies onto a planet more or less instantly terraforms it, giving it fertile soil, ample water, breathable atmosphere, and a temperature in the range of comfort for earthlike creatures. This has the dual side effect of creating an ecosystem with a really obvious weak point, and of providing an endless source of magical power that is easily abused.
  • Kept in high security because their presence is all that's keeping the body of Primus livable for the organics that comprise most of the Pantheon; anywhere else and the risk of a machine uprising by removal would be nigh-inevitable.

The King in Yellow

The Katamaris
  • Appearance: A number of colorful balls covered in knobs
  • Alignment: True Neutral (can be used for great good or great evil, depending on the user)
  • Portfolio: Stars, Connections, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Stickiness, Accumulation, Creation and Destruction, Making Reality Easily Confused with a Drug Trip
  • Domains: Creation, Destruction, Madness, Sun
  • Utterly indestructible. Items attached can be knocked off, but a katamari itself cannot be singed by the fires of the sun, crushed by a black hole, or blown away by the Big Bang itself.
  • Have amazing powers of attachment - anything of sufficently lower mass that it touches one will adhere to its surface, and the surface of that object then takes on the katamari's adhesive properties.
  • At the core of every star and every planet lies a katamari, covered with debris and transformed by the magic of the King of All Cosmos.
  • Between their stickiness and indestructibility, they must be kept in the highest of high-security areas, as they has the potential to reduce a planet to an empty ball with nothing but perfectly smooth rock covered with empty water- and potentially even begin assimilating worlds into their bulk. The damage they could do in the wrong hands is literally inconceivable in scope, and potentially world or even universe ending. As such, the King of All Cosmos has moved his supply of Katamaris here to prevent one of them from falling into the wrong hands.

The Fatestones
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Elemental Powers, Cosmic Keystone
  • Domain: Light, Life, Fire, Water, Earth, Wind, Energy, Illusion, Necromancy, Darkness
  • Stones created by Elore, given to Mirsa to seal away Saruin, the God of Destruction, during the second war of the gods in Mardias. They have often been used in shaping Mardias' history. One who bears a fatestone is protected from the opposite element of it. Many events in Mardias' history after the first war of the gods to Saruin's awakening resulted from humans' use of the Fatestones. Elore gave them to the Foundation after Saruin was defeated by warriors who passed his trials.

The Destiny Plume
  • Appearance: A white feather
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil (True Neutral before being cursed)
  • Portfolio: Deadly Upgrades, Magic Feathers
  • Domains: Strength, Wrath, Death
  • This is a feather plucked from the cap of Lenneth Valkyrie, but cursed by Hel, queen of the Underworld. Its wielder may imbue a close companion with its power, granting them the strength of ten men. The effect is only temporary, and the target's soul is claimed by Hel once its effects have worn off, killing the target for good.

The FATAL Sourcebook (First Edition)

A Standard Template Construct
  • Appearance: A surprisingly small personal computer
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: MacGuffin, Lost Technology, Applied Phlebotinum, Magical Computer
  • Domains: Law, Machine, Creation
  • One of the most sacred relics in the Imperium of Man, the Standard Template Construct is a device of extraordinary power and danger, even by the Pantheon's standards. Housing the sum total of mankind's technological knowledge, one need simply ask the computer how to do or how to built something to do any conceivable function, and the STC will in moments print out exact instructions using locally available materials and techniques.
  • The God-Emperor alone may authorize a deity to access the Standard Template Construct, and to date, he has never exercised this privilege.
    • Unfortunately, no one ever told him it was here.

The Chaos Heart
  • Alignment: Omnicidal
  • Portfolio: Artifact of Doom, The Power of the Void
  • The deadliest artifact in all universes, the Chaos Heart is activated by a forced marriage between a powerful king and a pure princess. Once activated, it unleashes the Void, which proceeds to consume all universes and leave absolutely nothing.
  • No relation to the Chaos Emeralds above.

The Anti-Life Equation
  • Appearance: Is not a physical object, but an equation. It's kept written down on a piece of paper in the vault.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Brown Note, The Virus, Mind Control, Assimilation Plot, The Evils of Free Will
  • This equation is the mathematical method of taking over the wills of sentient beings. It is said to be the mathematical proof of the futility of life.
  • The equation can be spread through all forms of electronic media.
  • The equation can not be used for good, as it is against its very nature to use it for that purpose.

Li'l Cal (That Fucking Puppet, Ohdeargodswhywouldyoueven, NONONONONONO, The Juju)
  • Appearance: A ventriloquist's puppet of decidedly uncanny appearance, dressed in either a blue-and-white "gangsta" outfit, purple pajamas, or a green tuxedo.
  • Alignment: Terrifying Evil
  • Portfolio: Demonic Dummies, Creepy Dolls, Perverse Puppets, Nightmare Fuel, Very Bad End, Soul Jars
  • Domains: Corruption, Death, Fear, Madness
  • Similar Artifacts: More than we really want to think about...
  • It has been said that Li'l Cal exists only to turn the lives of every being occupying the same universe as him into a living nightmare. While this has not been proven, he has played an integral role in enough multiverse-wrecking shit to lend a certain amount of credence to the theory.
    • That's not the reason he's in Maximum Security, though. The real reason is that he scares the shit out of every single member of the Pantheon.

Hinamizawa Syndrome
  • Appearance: A microscopic parasite of unknown nature. Possibly a Borna virus?
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Hate Plagues, Nightmare Fuel, Enemy Within
  • Domains: Chaos, Evil, Corruption, Death, Fear, Madness
  • Similar Artifacts: The Maverick Virus
  • One of the most terrifying hate plagues ever to exist. Sealed here under direct order from Oyashiro-sama, Rika Furude, and Ryukishi07. Also, the reason Shion Sonozaki is not allowed in the "Treasures of the Gods" is because everyone knows what happens when she gets whacked by a Hate Plague (it ain't pretty).
    • Its mechanical counterpart, the Maverick Virus, is also sealed here to prevent Zero's Awakened State from manifesting.

The Farsight XR-20
  • Appearance: An aqua-colored sniper rifle with a cross-shaped muzzle
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Alien Technology, Energy Weapons, Sniper Rifles, Extreme Game Breakers
  • Domains: War, Death, Luck, Strength
  • Similar Artifacts: The AWP
  • One of the deadliest weapons ever created by man, beast, or alien. A single shot from a Farsight has been known to penetrate any and all forms of protection, killing its target almost instantly. With a motion tracker and X-ray scope auxiliary function, any soldier wielding one becomes a walking death machine.
  • Its human-crafted counterpart, the AWP, doesn't quite possess the same capabilities as the Farsight (ballistic projectiles can't pierce through walls, after all), but is similarly feared for being ludicrously overpowered for a sniper rifle.

Ark of the Covenant
  • Appearance: A golden, intricately decorated chest, filled with sand and certain angelic energy...
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Things Not To Be Touched, Facemelting, Good Is Not Nice, Good Is Not Soft, Light 'em Up
  • Domains: Light, Death, Fire, Lightning
  • Locked in the deepest vault, put in multiple boxes and covered in chains to prevent anyone from opening it. Only YHVH might be able to open it and survive, but considering his motifs, nobody lets him in.
  • The Ark contains God's wrath, so it's only natural for it to be kept in Maximum Security.
    • Whatever being is inside appears to be at least semi-intelligent and able to fool and charm offenders with images of spectral women which later turn into hideous wraiths to immobilize the victim in terror, allowing The Ark to work its facemelting magic.
  • A few tried to open The Ark and even fewer survived with no glaring injury. Opening it from a distance doesn't work either, because it can just fry the offender with a lightning instead of melting their faces off.

The Smash Ball
  • Appearance: A circle with a pair of perpendicular lines on the side, glowing in many colors.
  • Alignment: Varies on the god
  • Portfolio: Finishing Move
  • Domains: Power, Upgrades
  • Similar Artifacts: All-star Power
  • Crafted by Master Hand, the Smash Ball has the ability to grant super powers to all gods who participated in his tournament. Note that this isn't exclusive to the Nintendo Gods as four outsiders (Sonic, Snake, Mega Man and Pac-Man) are capable of using it.

Index Librorum Prohibitorum (Dedicatus545: The Lamb That is Devoted to Protecting the Wisdom of the Strongest)
  • Appearance: A light-blue-haired girl in a nun habit
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: MacGuffin Girls, Human Knowledge Stores, Making Everything Better
  • Domains: Knowledge, Magic
  • Followers: Shiori Momono
  • The first (and so far only) humanoid to make her home within the Treasures of the Gods. She has been allowed to stay on the condition that she doesn't touch anything else in the temple, especially the Demonic Compendium.
  • Just as her name suggests, Index contains an entire printing press' worth of magical lore in her brain. For her own protection, she has made her home in the House of Treasures, kept far away from shady types like Brainiac who seek to unlock the spells within for ill intent.
  • A frequent visitor to the House of Food, she has been known to eat entire kitchens full of food, as she does not have to rely on Touma to feed her anymore.
    • She heard about the Gourmet Race and managed to escape the SCP agent escort assigned to guard her when outside the Vault to take part in the event. Though she didn't make much progress, she still impressed King Dedede enough to be an honorary Gourmet Racer Club member and allowed to sit at the table. When the higher-ups of the SCP learned of this, they demoted the agents to D-Class and assigned a tougher squad to keep an eye on her whenever she goes to the Gourmet Racer Club table.
  • Due to the excessive amount of grimoires she contains and their potency, she has been put within its Maximum Security section.

The Reiji Maigo (Midnight Lost Child)
  • Alignment: True Neutral (possibly Chaotic Good)
  • Portfolio: Being sealed in People. Granting Immortality to its user
  • Domains: Immortality, Healing
  • Yuji Sakai (its original user) used to be in the Treasures house since he had it inside of him until it was removed from him.
  • It was the most coveted item of The PAYDAY crew, next to Index, since it grants its user immortality.

An Omega Molecule
  • Appearance: A molecule. Can't get much descriptive than that.
  • Alignment: Varies on the god
  • Portfolio: Earth-Shattering Kaboom, Nice Job Breaking It, Hero, Oh Crap
  • Domain: Nature.
  • A scientificly-created molecule that, if allowed to explode, can render an entire sector of space unable to use warp drives. This is the one thing that forces Starfleet to dump the Prime Directive to try to get rid of this thing.

The Mace of Tanis

The Yamato Perpetual Reactor
  • Appearance: A large spiked ring on a pedestal.
  • Allignment: True Neutral, though its nature gives it immense potential for Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Magical Particle Accelerator, Black Holes
  • Domains: Destruction, Energy, The Void, the Multiverse
  • The Yamato Reactor was created by The White as part of a plan to create a reality-swallowing black hole. Fortunately, their plans were destroyed by Flynn, and the Yamato Reactor now supplies safe, clean power to the entire pantheon. Still the potential for abuse was too great, and the Reactor was moved to the Vault.
  • Unlike the other treasures in the Vault, the Reactor is not under the protection of the SCP Foundation. Instead, it is under the watchful eyes of Flynn and, if the situation is truly dire, his rival the Demi-Fiend. These two are the only ones allowed anywhere near the reactor; the God of Samurai Ponytails is fanatically protective of it and will not allow any others to approach it. He is fully willing to aim his blade at ANYONE in the Pantheon if he considers them a threat to the Reactor, from the Disgraces to Dream Himself. It is speculated that this attitude stems from a horrible mistake his alternate selves made regarding it.
  • Curiously, the infinite energy generation is a side-effect of Yamato's true nature - a gate to the Expanse. The reactor generates energy from nothing even when turned off. Actually activating it will open the gate, immediately sucking anybody nearby into any universe the holder of the remote wishes, and allow a massive demon infestation to spill upon the Pantheon. For this reason, Flynn keeps the reactor's remote control in his Gauntlet's inventory at all times, with orders to Burroughs to auto-summon Masakado's Shadow at full power against anyone who tries to take it by force. He has received offers from many to have the Reactor studied and analyzed, but invariably declines, citing too high a security risk.
  • The Reactor is, bar none, the single best-protected treasure in the Vault; its defenses are nothing short of obscene, as they represent the full combined might of the Houses of Technology, Gaming and Magic (the promise of free, endless energy was considered too tempting to pass up). Waves of sentry guns, Almighty magical traps, poisons, curses, homicidal Olympus Mons and labyrinthine interdimensional Domains are some of the gauntlet, among other sundry horrors. Triggering ANY ONE of these defenses sends alerts immediately to Flynn's gauntlet and Naoki's pager, bringing THEM running. Yamato itself, as a Magical Particle Accelerator, has a dimensionally-locking effect on its surroundings; after what happened to the last groups of time travelers and teleporters who tried to sneak into the Reactor Chamber, no one else is willing to try. Flynn himself is still "fundraising" to further jack up the security.

The Sacred Chalice
  • Appearance: A shining white chalice. (Not its true form. Its true form, revealed to only a few, is far more demonic in appearance)
  • Allignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Artifact of Doom, Public Domain Artifact, Unholy Holy Artifact, Jerkass Genie, Monkey's Paw, Deal with the Devil, Body Horror
  • Appeared one day in the House of Treasures. No one is quite sure where it came from, or how it came to be. What is known about it is that it is alive: it appears to people in a state of total despair, requesting a sacrifice in exchange for a wish. Upon the offering of the sacrifice, the wishmaker is transformed into a violent, mindless archfiend representing a horrifically bastardized interpretation of the wish.
  • Placed under Maximum Security after its capabilities became known. Even so, archfiends are continuing to appear.
  • The appearance of the Chalice, and the similarities drawn between its functions and that of the Incubators has put Madoka Kaname and her allies under high alert. Upon learning of the Chalice's existence, Homura immediately traveled to the House of Treasures, intent on destroying it. Nothing she tried worked. She has taken it upon herself to study it intently, in hopes of finding some vulnerability.
  • Aturia had a mild Heroic BSOD upon learning of the Chalice. She knew that the Chalice from her world was a Monkey's Paw in and of itself, but this was on a whole different level!

The Egyptian God Cards (Obelisk the Tormentor, Slifer the Sky Dragon, Winged Dragon of Ra)
  • Appearance: Three Duel Monster Cards that are blue, red and gold respectively, each bearing the image of the Egyptian Gods
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Donated by Yugi Muto for safekeeping should the GUAE try to untap their powers. Fortunately, only the chosen ones can wield them—anyone else invokes the Gods' wrath.
  • Ra is a special case: only those who can read its hieroglyphs are capable of summoning it. If not, it's just a giant glowing golden ball.
  • Out of them all, Seto Kaiba usually goes for Obelisk while Yugi is more keen for Slifer.
  • Alternate!Gentaro has gotten his eye on these cards and, knowing he was unable to use them himself, brainwashed Yugi to bring the Gods forth.

Of note is that the Triforce was originally kept in Maximum Security, however Princess Zelda's ascension caused the holy relic to divide itself and return to its three chosen bearers Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf.
