Using Zeus' image as well as including him and other pagan Gods in the trope at all for Physical God where he's grouped together with such nonsensical, fictional beings like Superman and Dr. Manhattan is quite offensive since despite whatever hypocritical nonsense most people might think about him nowadays (It's "unlikely" that Zeus can be actual God but somehow more "plausible" that Yahweh, Jesus, Shiva, etc. are?!), he really was worshipped with great respect in ancient Greco-Roman times for thousands of years and even today by Neo-Pagans (myself included)! So can someone please remove his image as a "Physical God" as well as any mention of him or any other pagan God in the tropes while fictional characters that never received worship in real life like Superman are being used alongside Gods that were and are actually worshipped?!

The trope does not concern itself with Real Life portrayal at all. I have to say no.

Replying to the following natter:

  • Discord is likely to be on the same power-level as the Princesses, but being the spirit of chaos, Discord is much less hesitant to use his full godly might than the Princesses. Still, the only thing that could defeat him (that we've seen) is the six-part superweapon known as The Elements Of Harmony.

Well, the princesses needed it to defeat him too. Also, they have not actually shown that kind of reality warping powers. So the above is just speculation, and it shouldn't have been entered as Discussion In The Main Page anyway.

For the same show: I forgot to put in an edit reason, but the reason I mostly removed the Winged Unicorn stuff is that they're slowly getting less rare all the time and it doesn't make sense to mention half of the known ones as being exceptions to the generalisation that being an alicorn could hypothetically have something to do with being a physical god.
