I would like to propose two gods for ascension.

Shiki Misaki Goddess of using toy cats and girls who like them I want Shiki inducted because she's the only one of TWEWY cast not ascended.

Clare Goddess of gaining powers through other's body parts (Badass Transplant) I say this because the transplants plays a big part of Clare's character.

Just some ideas. Let me know what you think and work on it.

Adding Suggestion for the Ranged and Explosive Weapons Sub-house:

Marida Cruz, Goddess of Remotely-Operated Weapons (Ple Twelve, Purustitute)
  • Theme Song: Mobile Suit
  • Rank: Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Sleeves Logo, or alternatively the NZ-666 Kshatriya.
  • Alignment: Lawful to Neutral Evil; Neutral Good post-Heel-Face Turn.
  • Portfolio: Attack Drones, Anti-Villany, Artificial Humans, raging upon sight of a Gundam, Affably Evil Redheads, Dark and Troubled Past, Lightning Bruisers, Morality Pet to nearly the entire cast, Stoicism
  • Domains: War, Combat, Space, Mind
  • Allies: The GUAG Robot War Division, Nanoha Takamichi
  • Rivals: Haman Karn, (weirdly enough) Attenborough Cortitch
  • Enemies: the rest of the GUAE Mecha Cohorts, Lord Djibril
  • A lot of debate occurred in the House of Prophecy regarding the said title, as elaborated:
    • Initially, they predicted Lalah Sune to ascend to the title, being the one of the very first to utilize thought-controlled weapons. However, they feared that her ascension would cause Amuro Ray and Char Aznable to add fire to their already-intense rivalry, causing the House of War to completely collapse on itself.
    • Some even predicted one Descarted Shaman to ascend, his main unit holding the record for the most number of remote weapons thereof. Unfortunately, he got hit by The Worf Effect hard during his second sortie against the ELS, thus voiding his chance at the title.
    • Other deities suggested appending this title to Haman Karn since she was already here for quite a while as Signum's evil counterpart.
    • Ultimately, they settled for allowing Marida's ascension to the House of Weapons since she is completely neutral in the eyes of the two aforementioned Ace Pilots, AND her MS outguns Haman's, with at the least 24 individual funnels compared to the Qubeley's 10.
  • While she's not that much on good terms with Char and Haman, she has surprisingly become a Cool Big Sis to Aila, as both can relate to having Dark and Troubled Pasts. Also, she shares the latter's hatred over Lord Djibril, but for the reason that she reminds her of the time when she was reconditioned by the Vist Foundation.
    • In relation to that, her hatred of Rau LeCreuset stems from her time as an expendable clone during the First Neo-Zeon War, where she was sent by her former master Glemmy Toto to do battle in a losing war.
  • Deities who pilot Gundams (or even other units that look suspiciously like one) are quite wary of showing up to her in their respective units, due to her inherent Berserk Button. She has become a bit better in adjusting after breaking away from her second reconditioning.
  • So far, only The God of Beam Spam has been able to actually out-Beam Spam her Kshatriya. She doesn't mind though.

If there something else that needs to be added, do place them in the comments...

I would like to suggest Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long of Web Animation/RWBY fame as the Goddesses of Enhanced Archaic Weapons since all save Weiss's weapons are essentially normal weapons (scythe, katana/sickle, and gauntlets) with firearms integrated into them for extra killing power, while Weiss's is a rapier that has a revolver mechanism for using Dust.

Could also serve as the Goddesses of Impossibly Cool Weapon, though I think that's taken already.

Well, while Shirou's been projecting swords for most of the time, he's more known for "armament projection"...

And we cannot afford to create pages with few deities contained. That's the reason for the current format.

Updating my previous suggestions:

Kaede Nagase, Patron Deity of Oversized Shurikens (Student No. 20)
  • Rank: Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Her Oversized Shuriken. Alternatively, her artifact, Tengu-no-Kakuremino.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good.
  • Portfolio: Absurdly Large Shurikens, Cool Big Sis, Flash Step, Harem Nanny, Ninja, Statuesque Stunner, Supernatural Martial Arts.
  • Domains: Stealth, Weapons, Combat.
  • Allies: Negi (her teacher), Asuna (classmate, sparring partner on occasion) Nodoka, Yue, Evangeline (views her as an on-off acquaintance, but nonetheless occasional ally), the Ninja Shin-Tennou
  • High Priest: Sarutobi Sasuke
  • The Gods in The House of Prophecy had anticipated a ninja to take up the title, but most of them were expecting that the same would be appended either to Sasuke or Naruto (the latter because of his Rasenshuriken). None of them expected Kaede to lay claim to the title, until she brought out her shuriken from the Tengu-no-Kakuremino and demonstrated its use in combat, both as an offensive and as a defensive weapon.
  • She has been invited to be a part of the Ninja Shin-Tennou, but declined due to her association with her teacher and the Ala Alba group, serving as one of its best combatants (especially in light of "The Great Upheaval"). Nonetheless, she promised to lend them a hand whenever possible.
  • She was apparently left speechless when Simon narrated to her of the time Team Dai-Gurren fought the Anti-Spirals in a pocket universe. She scratched her head upon mention of "galaxy shurikens", then breathed a sigh of relief at the end of the story.
  • She's apparently wary of Wart from the House of Beasts. The reason for such relief has yet to see light.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Trowa Barton, Patron Saint of Alpha Strikes (No-Name (Previously), Triton Bloom, Dokter T)
  • Theme Song: Back in the Smell of Blood and Gunpowder
  • Rank: Demigod
  • Symbol: A Half-mask of a crying clown. Alternatively, the Gundam Heavyarms.
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral; becomes Chaotic Good once he unloads his Gundam's entire arsenal.
  • Portfolio: Alpha Strikes, Anti-Hero, Bottomless Magazines, Gatling Good, Genius Bruiser, More Dakka, Macross Missile Massacre, Peek-a-Bangs, The Stoic
  • Domains: Weapons, War, Combat
  • Allies: Heero Yuy, the rest of the GUAG Robot War Division, Chris Yukine
  • High Priestess: Leena Toros
  • Rivals: Revy, Laguna Loire, Max Jenius, Heavy Weapons Guy
  • Enemies: Joker, Warboss Ghazgkull and his legion of Orks
  • While all his rivals have excelled in their respective weapon specialties, none of them have effectively used a multitude of gunfire and missile barrage during battles in one single stroke, and all at the same time. Trowa silenced them (and by extension the rest of the House of Weapons) by unleashing his Gundam's entire payload on a large contingent of Orks, annihilating a sizeable portion thereof.
    • This apparently made Warboss Ghazgkull very cross since he was amassing those Orks for an upcoming WAAAGH! And, in his own words, "a puny hummie with a clunky hummie mek managed to git moar dakka and kill off me boiz!"
  • His ascension had apparently earned the ire of The Joker, due to his Clown Half-mask... and the fact that Trowa can just blast away anything Joker throws at him.
  • Other Gods have been speculating that he was more fit for the title currently held by his contemporary in the House of Emotion. The only catch was that he tends to be a bit more quiet than Heero.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Do check for errors, and in case no one has any better suggestions within 24 hours, permission to include them into this house...

I would like to suggest a replacement for one of gods. And that would be for Kogasa. You see, even if she is a living umbrella, she doesn't use her umbrella to fight much. She can fire danmaku with it and summon other umbrellas, but none of those things aren't really usual for how to fight with umbrella. So I think she should be replaced and be made a goddess of Surprises or something.

A replacement for her? Yagyuu. She has many things about her what involve her umbrella from blocking with it, whacking people with it, hiding blades into it or hiding a sword inside it and shooting energy from it. I decided to make a mock portfolio already for her.

Yagyuu, Goddess of Umbrellas

So what you people think? Should she replace Kogasa or not?

We don't seem to have a God for Weaponized Baseball Bat. I would recommend Junpei Iori for this, considering he really goes baseball on the Persona 4 Arena expansion, and he always use his BFS in a baseball stance for it to work anyway.

Did Gunbuster use baseball bat in the original series? The trope page only lists him using one is SRW 3.

Also, I noticed that the baseball bat belonging to Donny "The Bear Jew" Donowitz in in Treasores, so there's something to consider.

As for SEES, where I don't mind it, I cannot see who could get in. Most weapon tropes have been filled up. Even for other positions, Robot Girl has been filled up.

What about a Goddess of Naginatas? Goddess, because it is primarily used by women. The one I am most familiar with would be Keladry of Mindelan from the Tortall Universe, and so would be able to write an entry on her. There are many anime example as well, however, and if someone feels that one of them would be best suited to be Goddess of Naginatas, they can write up the entry.

I nominate The Wonderful 101 as co-deities of Morph Weapons and Equippable Allies. I know we've got Tsukasa Kadoya there already, but the 101 blow anything he's got clean out of the water.

Theme Song: The Won-stoppable 101

Symbol: A Wonder Pendant

Allignment: Lawful Good

Rank: Alone, Demigods. With ten or more working together, Lesser Gods. Twenty, Intermediate. Fifty, Greater Gods. One hundred or more, Overdeities.

Portfolio: Morphing Weapons, Teamwork, Henshin Hero, Zerg Rush, Calling Attacks, Bunny Ears Superheroes

Allies: Dante, Bayonetta, Amatarasu, Asura

Followers: Necrid

Ousted Tsukasa Kadoya upon their defeat of the Gethjerk Commander, thereby saving their planet. Their seamless teamwork, ability to temporarily recruit ANYONE into their ranks, and the sheer versatility of their Unite Morphs quickly won the favor of the House of Weapons. Tsukasa himself is less than thrilled at this turn of events.

General consensus is that their Lietmotif, while suitably upbeat and catchy, is in dire need of new lyrics. ("Go, go team, demolish those fiends, toss them in the garbage can?" Really?)

Considering how eccentric they are, underestimating them is very easy to do. It is also VERY unwise.

Asura is quite impressed by the Wonder Hand.

I've come up with a few changes here and there. I posted this on the main discussion page before coming here. Everyone's thoughts?

Jack Cayman, God of Chainsaws (Jack the Chaser, Deathwatcher)
  • Theme Song: Sound the Alarm
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Skull and cross-wrenches on his back.
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral, though will slip into True Neutral
  • Portfolio: The Gator Tooth, leather, Bounty Hunter, Anti-Hero, Cyborg, Chained by Fashion, former smoking, Fire
  • Domains: Weapons, Gore, Bounty Hunting
  • Followers: Buccaneer, Cars, Giriko, Ash Williams, Skorge, Tachibana Muneshige
  • Allies: Blacker Baron, Big Bull, Bayonetta, Gene
  • Though formally a follower to Marcus Fenix, Jack came into power by proving to the Pantheon that Marcus' chainsaw was his secondary weapon rather than primary. After he was dethroned, the gods hosted a contest to decide who among the followers would surpass him. Being vouched for by other gods, and cutting through laser blasts, clinched the victory.
  • Though the thought was at one point appreciated, Jack no longer accepts cigarettes or cigars as tributes, having given up smoking.
  • Since becoming a god, the Chaser business has since slowed. Most days he relaxes at the Pantheon's bar.
  • Also known to frequent the House of Technology for regular check ups on his arm and skeleton. "Outdated" though his chainsaw may be, he still likes to keep it in top condition.

All love to the current god of chainsaws Marcus Fenix, but I think his chainsaw is a secondary weapon, considering Gears of War is a shooter first and foremost.

Big Bull, God of Rocket Powered Weapons (Bull, King of Altambra)
  • Theme Song: Over in a Flash
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: [死角] "Blind Spot"
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Cyborg, the Jet Hammer, puns, Bulls, Glowing Mechanical Eyes, Large Ham, Transforming Mecha
  • Domains: Weaponry, Propulsion, Machinery, Gangs
  • Followers: The Bull Gang, Ido, Labrys
  • Allies: Jack Cayman, The Bloodhooves, Gene, Bayonetta
  • Was upset that the prime beef that he was didn't get included in the House of Beasts, but is willing to make due with this ranch instead.
  • Petitioned to have his shrine near Jack's, to make sure his sworn brother is well.
  • Since having his gang join him in the pantheon, things have gotten remarkably louder than normal, if such a thing was possible.
  • Has been striking a friendship with the two gods of minotaurs, though they are flattered by his choosing his body in their image, they do often get uncomfortable with his speech pattern.

I'm suggesting that we move Excalibur into the Treasury. I thought the house of Weapons is about weaponry-usage, not the weapons itself. Hell, Master Sword, Goldion Hammer, etc are already in Treasury... why isn't Excalibur there instead?

I could excuse it if the Excalibur we're talking about in the Weapons house is the Soul Eater version (the highly annoying one), but this implies that this is a more universal Excalibur, which is just that: A Sword.

So shall we pass it to the Treasures?

Isn't there a deity for Pile Bunkers? I suggest adding this portfolio to Kyosuke Nanbu...

04:30:09 AM Jan 21st 2013
I don't think that... fits, as much as it is pretty good for Kyosuke. See, Pile Bunker / Revolving Stake is not Alt's sole weaponry, there's also the Claymore. I'm not sure if it's the most famous, though, but it wasn't Kyosuke or Alt's defining feature. Besides, Kyosuke is more known for his death-cheating, devil's luck and relationship with Excellen. So I think making him a God for Pile Bunker is a bit too much stretching it.

Open for debate though.

My suggestion? How about Taizo Hori from Dig Dug? That thing he used for digging? Turns out to be one hell of a Pile Bunker and everything about him depends on that one bunker. Could be a good substitute for the title of 'Digging' because that portfolio has been taken by Simon.
CelPrevZero

Clint Barton God of Archery (Hawkeye, Goliath II, Ronin II, The Golden Archer)

Considering the trope name change of The Archer, and Clint/Hawkeye himself has been in the new trope entry, while Huang Zhong is not, then I'm going ahead with the replacement

Can we have Simo Häyä as the new God of Snipers? I mean, the guy is far beyond the term legendary! And if that doesn't work, can we have two gods of snipers?
Sorantheman
12:12:12 PM Jun 13th 2012
Actually I have a better idea: Lockon can stay as god of Friendly Snipers, wile Simo can be the God of Cold Snipers.

Commissar Ciaphas Cain, HERO OF THE IMPERIUM, will now contest Marcus Fenix as master of the Chain Weapon.

His primary weapon is a chainsword; its not a mini-sized add-on bayonet secondary melee attack like the Lancer is. Commissar Ciaphas Cain, HERO OF THE IMPERIUM, uses his chainsword as a primary weapon: one of two, the other being a laspistol issued mainly for field executions and closing with the enemy. He is considered a top-tier swordsmen (not limited to chainswords) in the known galaxy, alongside gene-modified, power-armored supersoldiers who are literally 10000 years old and are a literal step away from godhood, Ciaphas can stand among them as one of the best, and at the same time bring the light that is comedy to the grim darkness of the 41st Millenium.

Two problems in this house.

1. Duplicate entries for Drop the Hammer. Is there an alternate trope for weapons like maces and other blunt weapons?

2. Abbadon the Despoiler has a duplicate entry here along with the ones in Heroes and Villains and Leadership. This one is considerably different from the one in the other two houses, leading me to suspect a second author and a lack of either searching or communication.

I think we're gonna need a God for Simple Staff. Who, really? Kilik? Jade? Billy Kane? Or is there a God/Goddess that could dual role with this?

Likewise, we're also going to need a God for Sinister Scythe. One that comes to mind is... um, Testament. Anyone else?

...I'm curioujs, exactly HOW much weaker is the Duke after returning? What with the fact that Duke Nukem Forever didn't live up to the hype, apparently, and more relevant, the fact he's now technically under the authority of Utsuho (she IS the godsdess of Nuclear Fusion, after all...)

It's the latter fact that makes me wonder.

One a more interesting note wondering if there is a likely to have god of Gun Kata. Given it's association with the art-form, I would assume that Grammaton Cleric John Preston would be fitting for that role?
ChrisX
03:17:24 AM Jun 23rd 2011
It needs to be someone from the one originating the word. Someone from Equilibrium. Is that Grammaton Cleric John Preston from there?
DrakeClawfang
08:27:58 AM Jun 23rd 2011
Yes he is.
ChrisX
03:43:20 PM Jun 23rd 2011
Good. Then put him in? Because I haven't watched Equilibrium.

However, since Gun Kata is more on the technique, does that mean he goes to the War house?
TheLeangle
01:00:41 AM Jun 26th 2011
Not really, the Gun Kata as a method is all about guns, (how to acquire the weapon while unarmed, how to shoot and position of the "kill zone" of a body etc.). Not that he can't do hand to hand, but with a gun the man is nearly unstoppable.

And like Gun Fu, Gun Kata is pretty much unheard of without the gun...

I'm nominating either Kitana or Anji Mito. So, who'd fit?

Mifune, of Soul Eater, god of More Swords Than Anyone Could Ever Need

Sora, god of really wierd weapons
Rakuen
02:42:54 PM May 23rd 2010
I would say yes to Mifune as Lord of the Field of Blades. I would consider him a demigod.

If you're talking about Sora from Kingdom Hearts, he's quite comfortable in the Nature Pantheon right now. Also, "really weird weapons" is kind of a shaky position to just make up.
ExplodingFrogs
04:54:20 PM May 23rd 2010
Really? We have a trope for that, you know. Although I'd agree that someone other than Sora might be a better choice.

Also, if he doesn't have a different portfolio already, Archer from Fate Stay Night would also be a good candidate for Field of Blades.
Rakuen
10:47:07 PM May 23rd 2010
edited by Rakuen
I don't think Sora's keyblade is really improbable, it's just weird. And according to the laws of his universe, it's not only a valid weapon, it's perfectly normal for only one person to have it.

Archer is God of Weapons Fabrication right now. It's a bit more appropriate since he does make all of his weapons, both inside and outside the Reality Marble.

Hm... how cold is he? Since Lockon is more on the 'Friendly Sniper', if he's a distant guy, he'd fit well as the 'Cold Sniper' God. Well, nobody says There Can Only Be One god of one portfolio. Look at both Cloud Strife and Jack Rakan. Same portfolio, pretty civil together.
68.69.209.96
11:34:33 PM Mar 19th 2010
Well, he got his ring by entrapping sorry asteroid workers in his shell, and devouring them. And in his premier issue, he sniped a Green Lantern through his eye in mid-speech, when he was the aforementioned three sectors away, and proceeded to snipe even more (before John Stewart sniped back). In order for him to be Sinestro Corps, he's got to be cold-blooded.
