Pantheon / Weapon Wielding

This sub-house can be seen as the training ground to those who are starting their training, but are more concern on wielding the weapon itself than what the weapon itself is. The house has marks from different weapons being used.

    EMIYA/Archer 
EMIYA, God of Weapon Imitations (Archer, GARcher, Counter Guardian, The Hero of Justice)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nr3zpdo_crop.png
  • Theme Music: Unlimited Blade Works and Archer, the Hero who Nobody Knows
  • Intermediate God (Greater God within Unlimited Blade Works)
  • Symbol: Kanshou & Bakuya
  • Alignment: True Neutral, leaning towards Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Making people of the same sex gay for him, Memetic Badass, Unlimited Blade Works, Anti-Hero, Hunters of Temporal Paradox, Snarking, Future Badass, Archery, Chronic Backstabbing Disorder.
  • Domain: War, Personal Appearance, Heroism.
  • Allies: Rin Tohsaka, Shirou Emiya, Sayaka Miki, Kiritsugu Emiya, Jetstream Sam, Kung Jin, Itachi Uchiha
  • Rivals: Hakumen, Vergil.
  • Enemies: Gilgamesh, Kirei Kotomine, Relius Clover, Balrog
  • After hearing of one knock off of him, to say that he's disgusted would be an understatement. He finally succeeded in destroying it... for now.
  • When Kiritsugu ascended in the pantheon, only a smile came on his face.
  • Respects Hakumen as a Worthy Opponent, occasionally dueling him. Likewise, he wishes to test Vergil's skills some day... Whenever he's free.
  • Recent events in the Pantheon have been bad for Archer; after a fight with Itachi Uchiha, Archer found himself on the receiving end of a Mind Rape and is now brainwashed into fighting for the GUAE. Really, he was just acting, and needed a convenient way to sneak back into the GUAE and break their plans. His end goal is to assassinate the Joker, a threat that he feels has become too dangerous yet Bruce Wayne is unwilling to kill.
  • The fact that both he, Balrog and Relius Clover share the same voice is what shocks him so much.
  • Despite now being on the same side, he and Lancer still have a slight problem of fighting whenever they get within sight range of each other. It's not that they dislike each other. Lancer just refuses to let a fight go unfinished, and Archer feels the same about letting Lancer think that he won.
  • Visits his master Rin Tohsaka on occasion, mostly to make sure she hasn't melted the universe into a sea of anti-time by mistake. Oddly enough, these visits usually end in multiple explosions.
  • Is one of the members of the Agents of Balance, a neutral faction preventing the Regime and Forces of Chaos from getting an edge over the other. The guardians are considering a decision to make a mediator for the House of Personal Appearance for this reason. Archer, on his part, initially declined on this, but reluctantly accepted it.

    Erza Scarlet 
Erza Scarlet, Goddess of Superfast Equipping (Titania, Armor Girl, The Seventh Guild Master, The Battle Mage of the Fairy Tale Guild)

  • Theme Song her titular theme, Wings Of Liberty, Scarlet
  • Intermediate Goddess (Greater God when wearing Amadura Fairy or the Nakagami Armor)

  • Symbol: Her Heart Kruez Armor and Scarlet Hair
  • Portfolio: Fashionable Asskicker, Immense strength, Instant Armor, Lightning Bruiser, Multi-Melee Master, Powered Armor, Storm of Blades, Stylish Armor, Summon to Hand, wielding multiple weapons at once, a love for strawberry cake, True Companions
  • Domains: Weapons, Justice, Sweets, Good, Combat
  • Followers: The Pandora
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Every other weapon-wielding god (especially Zoro, whom she fought for the title of Dual Wielding god; so far, the fight has been postponed for another time), Gilgamesh
  • Annoyed by: Space Dandy
  • Enemies: Johan Liebert, The house of Hatred except Barney and every demigod there except Lysandre and Teyrn, anyone who messes with her strawberry cake, Ornstein and Smough
  • Not related to in any way: Remilia and Flandre Scarlet
  • Made her way into the Pantheon after being invited by Natsu and Lucy, who were surprised that they made it before her. She then came here and decided to challenge Zoro to a fight for the god of Dual Wielding. However, it was postponed once she obtained her current position.
    • Years after that, upon hearing that he and she will be the participants for the next Death Battle, Erza's looking forward to settle the score once and for all. Zoro proved to be the superior one, but it only spurs her further to get stronger when they next duel.
  • She later befriended Yui and Yotsuba due to their love of strawberry cake. If anyone messes with it (like making it fall on the ground and stepping on it), she will have no hesitance to beat people to the ground. Marissa Picard Gordon did the unthinkable and stole her strawberry cake; the resulting beatdown that ensued caused the victim to fear strawberries. As a result of this incident, pissing her off is ranked the fifth stupidest thing to do in the Pantheon.
  • She became friends and sparring partners with Signum after noticing their similarities. Their battles are among some of the greatest sword-wielding events to shake the Pantheon's core.
    • They recently welcomed a new addition to their spars: Pyrrha Nikos. Erza is very respectful of the young Huntress and her skills, and is happy to spar whenever they have the time.
    • They also welcomed Shigure Kosaka and Morgianna to spars. The former was welcomed because of her combat prowess and the latter was taken in as a disciple, as Erza can relate to young Fanalis due to their similar pasts.
    • They have also welcomed Ryuko Matoi, Chifuyu Orimura, Satsuki Kiryuin, Ikaruga and Kaori Kanzaki in an all-around Melee similar to Jetstream Sam's Katana tournament.
      • She has also expressed interest in the former Kamui, hearing that many gods and goddess have donned the infamous outfit.
  • She often visits the House of Food thanks to their awesome strawberry cakes. Upon hearing of Princess Peach's ow cake, she tasted it for her own, before exclaiming "SO GOOD!!!" and launching into the air like a rocket.
  • It's stated that she sounds very similar to Yuko Ichihara. However, the two have never crossed paths.
  • She is secretly a fan of Jiraiya's works and has a collection of books hidden somewhere.
  • She has heard of Ornstein and Smough attacks on her fellow guild members for being dragon slayers and immediately put them on her shitlist.
  • Has been looking into finding some dragonslaying weapons upon learning of Acnologia's ascension. She refuses to allow her friends to fight him alone.
  • After Makarov ascended she was more than happy to him the job as Fairy Tail's Guild Master.
  • She was rather happy to hear of Jellal's ascension. While some of her friends are currently rooting her on.
  • Her voice and surname has made her a target of Dandy. This has understandably annoyed her, though Dandy hasn't stopped trying to make a move on her.
  • She's definitely a contender when it comes to Frank West's quest to find "Perfect Erotica". After he find out about her various outfits and shameless about her sexiness.
  • Did battle with Gilgamesh, the wondering dimensional traveler one, when he heard of her many collection of weapons and armors. During their fight, each of the Warriors lost and gain. For Gilgamesh, he lost his Muramasa and his Genji set. But he obtain her Spike Mace from her Purgatory Armor and Spear of Lightning from her Lightning Empress Armor.
  • She once lent her clothes to Kasumi after encountering the ninja. No one particularly knows why. Maybe it's a way to get Dandy off her back.

  • Serves his Emperor with complete loyalty and under his orders was given the task to help him conquer The Pantheon. His actions had earned him the rivalry of Alexander and Shao Kahn as they also seek similar goals.
  • He now holds The Ultima Weapon, A powerful Machine that was created to conquer ancient Gods called The Primals, He pilots in when he needs to use it to fight the more powerful members of The Pantheon, though he would reframe from using it if pushed he will use Ultima.
    • This has earned him the ire of Odin as in Gaius's world he is one of those Primals and seeks to destroy such a machine.
  • Has sided with Corypheus on the idea that Divine Power from false gods is only from misguided, weak, false rulers. He believes that the stability and absolute order that would come with Mateus's rule is the only true strength that is needed.
    • Gaius has earned Hawke's anger due to this.
  • He often tries to dissuade uses of power that would outright devastate any part of The Pantheon as he wishes to conquer every part and cannot due so if they are turned into a smoking crater.
  • He has tried to get Gabranth to work with Mateus as he believes that they are after something similar, though he has turned him down in every turn Gaius admires the man's loyalty to his ideals.

Shirou Emiya, God of Spontaneous Weapon Creation (Archer, Hero of Justice)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/latest_3.png
  • Intermediate God (Greater God within Unlimited Blade Works)
  • Theme Music: EMIYA. One of very many.

  • Allies: Rin Tohsaka (his "girlfriend"), Arturia Pendragon (his other "girlfriend"), Sakura Matou (his other, other "girlfriend"), Illyasviel von Einzbern (his adopted big sister), Yuji Sakai, Sayaka Miki, Kiritsugu Emiya (his adopted father), Kouta Kazuraba, Eiji Hino, Rider, Peter Parker, Meliodas, Clark Kent, Haruto Soma, Hercules, Cu Chulainn
  • Odd Friendship: Ahri
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Jin Kisaragi, Archer (his future-self), Sir Lancelot
  • Completely Confuses: Mordred
  • Enemies: Gilgamesh, Kotomine Kirei, Ryoma Sengoku, Dio Brando, Apocalypse, SHOCKER
  • Can't Work Well With: Shiki Tohno
  • Emiya Shirou's status as an Intermediate God is the result of him being split between himself and his Future Badass self: Archer, God of GAR. The two cannot approve of each other, but if they ever came to terms, Shirou would become twice as powerful.
    • Once, in some Alternate Universe that got annulled by Tohsaka's dimensional antics, Shirou had Archer's left arm attached to replace his own. While the invasion of Archer's powers slowly killed him and destroyed his mind as he called upon them, the sheer determination and badassery that he showed trying to save his loved one allowed Shirou to become the Greater God of GAR.
  • Unbeknowst to him, his father Kiritsugu has watched him venture on, and was quite impressed when he finally took up his ideals to become a hero.
  • Stays far away from the House of Love for two reasons; one is that most of the gods will tell him to "jam it in" when it comes to sex, and the other is their fighting about which girl he should be with. It gets tiring really quickly.
    • A third reason came up where they tell him to get that harem ending. This just caused him to stammer like crazy.
  • Was revealed from above that Shirou and Shiki Tohno can never work together because of their conflicting personalities. Despite that, the two once tried to work together to decide whether they should try and go on a date with all their potential love interests or just date the main one. No matter what they chose, it would end in disaster.
  • Shirou's alignment is in constant influx. One day he might be Lawful Good and the next Chaotic Good. This changes based on how idealistic or cynical the pantheon is feeling. Thankfully, Shirou hasn't crossed to the Chaotic Neutral point which would make him become just like, or maybe even worse than, his father.
  • Somtimes people would remind Shirou of his people die when they are killed quote and make fun of the saying. Of course, most don't realize this was a response to Shirou giving Arturia back Avalon, her magic sheath that houses Excalibur and has a Healing Factor, which was inside Shirou and healing any wounds he was inflicted. He was just saying that once someone is killed, they stay dead. But try telling that to most in the pantheon.
  • Became close allies to both Kouta Kazuraba and Sayaka Miki, all three sharing the same ideals of being heroes and wanting to protect the people they care about. Not only that, but all three went through a point of having their ideals torn down. Sayaka looks up to the other two for support as they were able to overcome their trials and became stronger for it.
    • Shirou also became friends with Eiji Hino when the two found out that they both went through a tragic event that caused them to become empty inside and devoted themselves to helping others, and to lack self-worth.
  • Shirou's place tends to get crowded thanks to Arturia, Rin, Sakura, Illya, and even Rider coming over for whatever reason. Of course, it gets chaotic very quickly; e.g., when Illya put a sleep spell on Shirou so that they could nap together and she and Rin ended up fighting while Arturia stood there stupefied.
    • This caused of a bit of a funny situation with Lancelot, who thought his king was being dishonored by Shirou. A brief altercation between the two occurred. Nowadays, although the two will team up, it's a bit bumpy.
  • Is somewhat at odds with Mordred, Arturia's "son". He does have some pity for her and her past, but he refuses to let her carry out any revenge against the King of Knights. That said, he would like the two of them to reconcile and has offered his aid on several occasions.
    • Mordred has also made it clear that while she doesn't approve of the relationship he has with her "father", she accepts it...though she warned him that he would suffer if she ever caught him being unfaithful to Arturia...or even hurting her in some fashion. That's her job.
  • Struck up a great friendship with Peter Parker. They found common ground in wanting to help people and having a traumatic past that defines who they are. They also both had their ideals deconstructed at one point. The two also notice that they sometimes sound alike.
  • For unknown reasons, Ahri would sometimes be seen going into Shirou's place, eating his cooking. He doesn't really mind her coming over. The girls, however, don't really like her spending that much time with Shirou, especially Sakura and Illya.
  • Has often been known to do some "mana transferring" with either Arturia or Rin. No matter how much the three tell people there is no sex involved, others don't buy it.
  • Doesn't like Dio Brando, because Dio reminds him of Gilgamesh. He also opposes Ryoma Sengoku for his callous personality, and is appalled at Apocalypse's extreme views, which, again, remind him of Gilgamesh.

    Hol Horse 
Hol Horse, God of Atrocious Aiming
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/holhorseanime.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Stand, Emperor
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Know When to Fold 'Em, Dirty Coward, Jerkass, The Gunslinger, Improbable Aiming Skills (Improbably Bad, that is), A Stand that's Ultimately Less Useful than it Sounds
  • Domains: Guns, Incompetency
  • Allies: Dio Brando, Yosemite Sam
  • Rivals (mostly one-sided on his end): John Marston, Jesse McCree, The Man with No Name, Erron Black
  • Enemies: Jean-Pierre Polnareff, Muhammad Avdol, Noriaki Kakyoin, Jotaro Kujo, Joseph Joestar, Lucky Luke, The Lone Ranger
  • Other Relations: J. Geil
  • Hol Horse is one of Dio's hired guns that tried to stop Jotaro and his crew from completing their journey. His stand, Emperor, is basically a gun that Hol Horse can summon at will. What makes it different from most other guns is that Hol Horse can control the direction of the bullets shot from it, presumably due to the bullets being a part of his Stand. In theory, this would sound like an effective skill, but the truth couldn't be more different. In all the time that Hol Horse was active in pursuing his targets, he was never able to kill any of them (and the one time where it looked like he actually killed Avdol didn't really count due to the latter faking his death). To add insult to injury, his journey to hunt down Jotaro's team ended with Hol Horse getting hit with his own bullets, causing him to get hospitalized.
  • There is a shooting range within the Pantheon that lets visitors test various firearms or see how their aim is. A person dressed up like a cowboy decided to visit that place and made a claim that he had the ability to control the direction of his bullets. The visitors allowed Hol Horse to see if his claims were true and gave him a dummy to shoot at. While his claims of controllable bullets were true, it turned out that he somehow managed to miss the dummy entirely. Hol Horse was rather humiliated with this outcome and has tried to improve his shooting skills since then.
    • What made things a bit more awkward for him during his initial visit was the fact that some Stormtroopers of the 501st were present to witness his shooting abilities and that unit isn't really considered to be the best shooters in general. While those Stormtroopers didn't really mock Hol Horse, they felt that given his abilities he could have been better.
  • Compared to other Stands, Emperor is weak from a strength-based perspective and Hol Horse knows it. It's why he prefers to find someone stronger than he is and work with them. As soon as things go bad for him, he runs away from the battle and then resorts to looking for a better partner so that he can be at an advantage again.
    • It was a bit of surprise for him to see J. Geil alive and well since their initial teamup. Hol Horse ended up having an encounter with J. Geil's mother, Enya, and things went badly for him during that meeting. While J. Geil doesn't have much issue reteaming with him if it means ruining the lives of others, Hol Horse is a bit wary on that prospect, if only to avoid incurring the wrath of Enya again.
  • He is one of the more unorthodox cowboys of the Pantheon due to being a gunslinger with controllable bullets. That said, most other cowboys (or anyone from a Western for that matter) either don't take him seriously because of his poor track record or dislike him for his mean personality. Arguably the only cowboy that's fine with him is Yosemite Sam and the two have found work together every now and then. It hasn't done much to boost their success rates though.
  • If he isn't looking for a new partner to work with, then there is a decent possibility that he is trying to improve his chances of getting a good shot at a target. At the very least, Hol Horse was able to shoot off a random jerk's ear one time, but it wasn't an important person and Hol Horse wants to be able to get a shot at more significant targets whenever the opportunity arises.
  • Aside from being a gunslinger, he fancies himself as a sort of womanizer. For the most part, he also Wouldn't Hit a Girl (though the one exception was a result of some weird circumstances involving Boingo, a kid with a comic book that can predict the future). Hol Horse has gotten himself in a bit of a mild rivalry with some other womanizers due to that.
  • He doesn't want much to do with the House of Prophecy due to how the aforementioned team-up with Boingo ended for him. Even if that House makes accurate predictions, he is rather suspicious that there is going to be a twist in their predictions that would more often than not hinder his progress.
  • Unlike most of Dio's other subordinates, Hol Horse is only loyal enough to follow him out of fear. If possible, the gunslinger is willing to take up offers of hunting down heroes if only to get a decent paycheck. Despite this, some other bounty hunters such as Boba Fett (whose motivation for targeting heroes is also for the money) ridiculed Hol Horse for his subpar shooting skills.
    • When Hol Horse ended up meeting Taskmaster, another being who takes up jobs hunting down people for money, some trouble would ensue. Not only did Hol Horse perform poorly during a battle between the two, but it led to additional conflict since Taskmaster preferred if the targets they're pursuing aren't killed, just merely incapacitated. Then again, Hol Horse was intially working for someone who wanted Jotaro and his team dead.
  • The one time that he ended up on the Stardust Crusaders' side was an Enemy Mine situation due to Enya, but as soon as that battle ended, he left them and ended up working for Dio. While Hol Horse will try to get payback against the Crusaders if possible, there is some irony to the aforementioned scenario in that Hol Horse could have been an actual member of the Crusaders. That forgotten possibility doesn't really concern Hol Horse that much.

    John Preston 
John Preston Divine Master Of The Gun Kata (The Cleric)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2015_08_19_085704.jpg
  • Theme Song: Cleric Preston
  • Lesser God

  • Portfolio: The Ace, Badass Longcoat, Guns Akimbo/The Gunslinger/Offhand Backhand, The Stoic, Tranquil Fury, Showy Invincible Hero, Went From Being The Stoic To Not So Stoic Upon Experiencing Emotions For The First Time
  • Domains: Firearms, Emotions
  • High Priestess: Violet Song jat Shariff (his understudy)
  • Followers: The members of The Fraternity, particulary Wesley Gibson, Cross, Fox, 'The Exterminator,' Earl Spellman, and 'The Repairman'
  • Allies: Judge Joseph Dredd, Katniss Everdeen, Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Leon S. Kennedy, Dante Sparda, Nero, Samus Aran, Integra Hellsing
  • Rivals: Coyote Staark, Doomguy, Revy, Rebecca
  • Enemies: Big Brother
  • Odd Friendship: with Asura and Kratos
  • Worthy Opponents: Wade Wilson/Deadpool, Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, Tony Masters/Taskmaster, Balalaika of Hotel Moscow, Mana Tatsumiya, Hawkeye and Green Arrow
  • Ascended to the Pantheon after aiding 'The Underground' in overthrowing the totalitarian Tetragrammaton Council.
  • While Preston did not create the Gun Kata, he is indeed the master at it. A ballet of death, to be precise. To quote Vice-Counsel DuPont: "Through analysis of thousands of recorded gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically predictable element. The gun kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on the maximum number of opponents while keeping the defender clear of the statistically traditional trajectories of return fire." In layman's terms, Shoot where the enemy should be standing when they're aiming at you, and to not be where standing where the enemy is trying to shoot back.
  • While Preston is prone to showing emotions from time to time, he's usually emotionless, as it helps him to concentrate more.
  • Jill Valentine, Johnny Cage, and Cassandra Cage sought out Cleric Preston to learn Gun Kata from him. In Johnny's case, it's for his latest film project. For Jill and Cassie, they both want to improve on their respctive firearms techniques. While Johnny learns from Preston, Cassie and Jill learned from Preston's high priestess, Violet.
  • For some odd reason, Lord Eddard Stark reminds Preston of his deceased comrade, Errol Partridge.
  • Balalaika of Hotel Moscow was unimpressed with the former cleric, until he proposed a test of skill. Fortunately for Balalaika, her men was wearing body armor...and Preston wasn't going for headshots.
  • Revy, the ascended member from Lagoon Company, had been present when Preston had blasted his way through Balalaika's elite troops. After watching the gun kata in action, she is seriously considering taking lessons from the former Cleric.
  • Because of his uncanny resemblance to Bruce Wayne, Preston gets strange looks from Bane, Ra's and Talia Al Ghul.
  • Despite being rivals, Coyote Staark is on somewhat good terms with Preston. So much so that Staark has Preston to teach the gunkata class on occasion.
  • Judge Joseph Dredd is Preston's chief ally. Seeing as how Preston's job as a Grammaton Cleric didn't pan out, he's considering offering Preston a job with the Judges. If Preston is as dangerous with his dual guns, imagine what kind of damage he can do with. Lawgiver...

    Xiahou Yuan 
Xiahou Yuan (style name: Miaocai), God of Bow and Close Combat Mastery (The Happy General, Miaocai, Marquis Min, Enjeru)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/XiahouYuan_7653.jpg
  • Symbol: His Bow and Club/Sword
  • Lesser God
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Bow and Close Combat Mastery, A little fat yet powerful, improbable accuracy
  • Domains: Archery, War
  • Allies: Cao Cao, Xiahou Dun, Dian Wei
  • Rivals: Green Arrow, Hawkeye
  • Enemies: Lu Bu, Huang Zhong (also a close friend), Oda Nobunaga, Lucifer
  • He ascended after demonstrating his skill but taking out many enemy soldiers with his bow and club.
    • Gods who are verse in the Asian ports of his current portrayal find it fascinating in that his primary prior clubs have referenced the nine constellations of heaven. Xiahou Miaocai himself is proud of such a motif.
  • He's not too pleased to hear that Huang Zhong might make it to the pantheon though he would gladly take this opportunity to even the score with that old man. He only teamed up with his hated rival along with Slyvanas Windrunner, Hawkeye and Green Arrow in order to challenge the Gunslinger Quartet and show them that archers are just as good as any other gunmen. This legendary fight lead to the formation of the Five Great Archers of the Pantheon.
    • However, some people may deem them to get along as friends due to Xiahou Yuan's more jolly nature. But since historical portrayals have often deemed them to be enemies, those are all but fleeting theories and dreams.....
      • ...until that is, it eventually came into true fruition ever since their war against Orochi. Xiahou Yuan is even amused in that Huang Zhong is even curious about the qualities of his son, Xiahou Ba. Yuan wishes that Huang Zhong wouldn't be so stubborn and would ask for help more often from people like him.
  • Like Cao Cao, he also dislikes this Nobunaga because of his unpleasant nature and reprehensible actions compared to the one he worked with.
  • He is happy to join his lord and Dun along with Dian Wei and together they will end the chaos. Namely the GUAC, in particular.
  • He also makes it a point that his "rarely-used-outside-of-Asian-dubs" style name is like his cousin's Cao Cao's name; the "c" in "cai" is a "ts" sound, making it "Meow-tsai".
  • He's also nowadays, VERY IFFY towards the historical Zhang Fei for kidnapping his niece from Runan and making her his wife (thus having her give birth to Xingcai and Zhang Bao). However, a less-squicky light has been shed on the whole story thus making Xiahou Yuan a bit more accepting of him, since he also teases and takes pride in his own son Xiahou Ba as well.
    • Zhang Fei however, is a bit too embarrassed and lip-tied to comment on the whole thing. It seems Xiahou Yuan loves to tease his overall family, that's for sure. Even then before and now, family reunions are pretty awkward between them, especially when Yuan gets a taste of the linked family between both Shu and Wu and what Sun Jian would have to deal with.
  • Is rather notably getting along with his Spear Counterpart portrayal by the name of Qiulan/Shuuran, and is quite proud of her fighting game debut; he hopes one day to give her a session in the arts of wielding a straight club just as well as he can.

Demigods

    Jagi 
Jagi, God of Using Weapons Against Unarmed Opponents, Black Sheeps, and Easily Beaten Threats (Twisted Butcher of Hokuto)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jagi_6595.jpg
  • Demi God (Jagi is an unstoppable monster when up against most people. Unfortunately for him, no one in the Pantheon counts as most people.)
  • Theme Music: Jagi's Heliport
  • Symbol: His helmet in either it's black and gold or black and red color schemes with his shotguns displayed behind it in an X formation
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil/ A rather Dark shade of Chaotic Neutral when near Anna.
  • Portfolio: Underhanded Fighting, Failed attempts at greatness, Ax-Crazy, Jerkass, Wanting His Father's Approval, Unrepentant Bastardness, Tragic Villain.
  • Domains: Weapons, Siblings, Villains.
  • Allies: None. Most of the stronger deities have little use for him, and weaker ones are wary to work with him.
  • Enemies: Kenshiro, Shin, Most any of the more honor bound deities.
  • Despite Jagi's insistence that he is the true successor to Hokuto Shinken, the other deities felt that he reliance on weapons earned him his place here.
  • While Alpharius is representative of the Combat Pragmatist taken to a strategic level, Jagi is more of a bruiser. He does plan things out to some degree, but it's rarely more advanced than just finding some way to hurt the other guy as much as possible be it spitting needles, burning gas, or using pillars as clubs. That being said, many of the weaker deities are still somewhat wary of Jagi. They are VERY aware that there is no level he will not stoop to in order to gain an edge, and is somewhat unpridictable because of that.
  • In spite of his rather humiliating defeat, he still stands that he can defeat Kenshiro and is constantly planning for a re-match. Most of the other Deities are forming a pool to bet on just how long he'll last this time.
  • Is known for telling people to Say His Name. Though it is wise to know if he wants you to call him by his own name or call him Kenshiro: failure to do so usually means death.

    Lu Lingqi 
Lu Lingqi, Goddess of Dual-Ended Spears and Wielding Large Weapons One-Handed
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lu_lingqi_4687.jpg
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Her crossed pike
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Impossibly Cool Weapon, wielding a rather large weapon one handed, Surpisingly Loyal To Her Father Despite His Reputation, Spinning Her Weapon at lot, Bifurcated Double Weapon, Throwing her weapon and controlling it remotely Blood Knight, Has issues with being left alone
  • Domains: War, Combat, Weapons
  • Followers: Kisame, Zabuza
  • Allies: Lu Bu (her father)
  • Rivals: Guan Yinping, Ina, Xingcai
  • Enemies: Cao Cao, Liu Bei, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei
  • Odd Friendship with: Mithra
  • Ascneded after her father gave her his old weapon finding it less effective than his halberd. Using this opportunity to impress her father she quickly mastered the weapon with one hand. Lu Bu reluctantly had to accept her ascension though he was proud of her nonetheless.
  • She has never met Diaochan mostly because her father is surprisingly cautious about letting the two meet.
    • Some people theorize that they're not actually related; history via confirming someone else to be Lu Bu's wife can back this up.
  • Lu Bu cares very deeply for her. Even if you have managed to have him restrained, should you try to kill her, he will break out and kick your ass. Cao Cao learned that the hard way.
  • She planned on challenging Asura, in an attempt to regain her father's honor and somehow though he casually ignores her challenges mostly because she sound a bit like his own daughter. Not to mention he'd like to not be so hypocritical.
    • She managed to befriend Mithra after said encounter.
  • Her loyalty to her father reminds some of Mr. T of his devotion to his mother.
  • A big mystery is how the hell she managed to wield that weapon of hers so effectively with one hand. Then there's the question on how she managed to control it like a remote boomerang despite having no Psychic Powers.
  • Was surprised when first entering this house when she thought she heard her father but instead met Algol, this maybe due to the fact that he sounds like her father, though it was a strange encounter Algol has decided to have her under his protection due to his respect for The Mighty Lu Bu.
    • Often is worried about the relationships and rivalries between her father, Leo Whitefang and Ira Gamagoori. It doesn't help in that she hears her father's Japanese voice from three sides at once. Huang Gai, another person who also has that very voice, has stated that he himself would rather leave Lingqi alone during those moments.
  • Like her father, her surname is actually pronounced "Leer/Lur" in pinyin due to the double-dot tone (AKA the umlaut) above the "u". Thus, her name is pronounced as "Ler Lee-ng-chee".
  • Has gotten some looks from other people due to her attractiveness; other female gods will have to prepare for the day to teach her how to act like a more proper lady.
    • Some people are also noticing that unlike her father, Lingqi seems more civil and less willing to act like a beast on the battlefield. Perhaps it's because of this she may need to learn how to keep Lu Bu in check occasionally. Xingcai can relate.

     Revy 
Revy, Goddess of Guns Akimbo (Two-Hands, Rebecca)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/e4395e46bebe9533cf9e0b28e5a3bcf3.jpg
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Her custom Berettas
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil leaning towards True Neutral, Chaotic Evil when she loses it
  • Theme Song: Red Fraction
  • Portfolio: Guns Akimbo, Sociopathic Heroines, Frequent Swearing
  • Domains: Destruction, Death, Evil, Guns
  • Followers: Jake English
  • Enemies: Teana Lanster (who, although she uses a similar combat style, frowns upon Revy's callous and violent methods), Johan Liebert due to Hansel and Gretel becoming devoted to him and seeing him as a father figure to him, Lucy due to similar reasons with Johan Liebert, Hansel and Gretel, Roberta, Yuno Gasai (due to similar reasons as Hansel and Gretel), Motoko Kusanagi, Samus Aran, Noel Vermillion , Nu-13, May
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Hotel Moscow, Noel Vermillion (When they put aside their differences.)
  • Some members of the Pantheon likes to compare her to Lara Croft at times. None of them dares to do it in Revy's presence due to her short temper, though.
  • Her opponents have grown used to not trying to Badass Boast when fighting her. She often takes it as the perfect opportunity to load them full of bullets.
  • Revy despises Yuno Gasai since she makes her think of Hansel and Gretel.
  • Since Revy and Noel Vermillion belong to different factions (GUAG and GUAE), both often fight against each other whenever they cross paths. However, they will put aside their difference when it comes to Nu-13 and Yuno Gasai.
    • Noel Vermillion is currently trying to stage a takeover against Revy or have a spot in the house as her Good Counterpart.
  • Rainbow Dash feels a bit awkward around Revy, as she has the same voice as her old friend Gilda. Revy looks at Rainbow with interest as she sounds similar to Hansel.
    • Now that Gilda has ascended, one wonders what would happen if they would meet.
  • Didn't feel too bad about Yuna, one of her previous followers, going back to her roots in the House of Magic. Yuna comes by to target practice with Revy every now and then, though.
