[[folder:Sakuya Izayoi]]
'''[[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Sakuya Izayoi]], Goddess of [[FlechetteStorm Knife-Throwing]]''' (Perfect and Elegant Maid, PAD-chou, Dog of the Devil.)
[[quoteright:235:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/th105sakuya_3372.png]]
* Theme Song: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01skyPMeeoc Lunar Clock - Luna Dial]] or [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wFRIWFraWQ Flowering Night]]
* Lesser Goddess
* Symbol: A silver pocket watch surrounded by knives
* Alignment: LawfulNeutral
* Portfolio: [[FlechetteStorm Throwing Barrages of Knives]], [[TimeStandsStill Time Manipulation]], NinjaMaid, [[LadyOfWar Elegance In Battle]], MysticalWhiteHair, [[VagueAge Mysterious Age]] [[MultipleChoicePast And Origins]].
* Domains: Knives, Time, Servtitude
* Allies: [[Pantheon/FormsOfImmortality Mistress Remilia Scarlet]], [[Pantheon/FantasticalJobs Elenore Baker, Hong Meiling]], [[Pantheon/MagicArchetypes Patchouli Knowledge]], [[Pantheon/CausesOfMadness Flandre Scarlet, Fiona Mayfield]], [[Pantheon/{{Gaming}} Reimu Hakurei]], [[Pantheon/MagicArchetypes Marisa Kirisame]], [[Pantheon/{{Otherness}} Valkenhayn R. Hellsing]], [[Pantheon/CriminalPunishment Jolyne Cujoh]]
* Enemies: [[Pantheon/TimeManipulation Dio Brando]], [[Pantheon/MotivationsForEvil Enrico Pucci]], [[Pantheon/{{Vampires}} Dracula]], [[Pantheon/HardwareAndSoftware Joel]], [[Pantheon/SoldiersAndWarriors Doomguy]], [[Pantheon/{{Birds}} Lord Shen]]
* Conflicting Opinion: [[Pantheon/{{Ghosts}} Youmu Konpaku]] (her relationship with her debatable due to the large and inconsistent fanon)
* She is the finest there is for Dio's students. Like Dio, she also dislikes Yuuki Terumi since his tirade against vampires also goes to her mistress Remilia.
* She was extremely angered about years of not being put in ZUN's products, although she always said about only taking actions if the Scarlet Devil Mansion is involved, in her anger she was goaded to stay more loyal with the GUAE. As of recent, ZUN gave her appearance in the recent Touhou game, slightly appeasing her anger, but she's still unable to escape their clutches, unless someone elevated Remilia.
** After appearing in another game as a boss, she finally decided that she had to save her mistress. For that, she gathered the rest of the Scarlet Devil Mansion crew and the surprising help of [[Pantheon/{{Mentalism}} Seija Kijin]] in order to save Remilia. The mission was successful, allowing Remilia to ascend into a goddess, free Scarlet Devil Mansion and break the last link she had with GUAE and Dio Brando.
* [[BerserkButton Do not bring up pads around her.]] However, this is not because she cares about her breasts, but because she is sick of people bringing them up.
* There is a chance that if something unexpected would happen to [[Pantheon/{{Profession}} Elenore Baker]], Sakuya would take her place as the Goddess of {{Ninja Maid}}s until things get better.
* There is really big question about Sakuya's origins, with many theories having been thrown around. Sakuya refuses to comment on them and discussing about them Remilia is equally unsuccessful.
* Some time after her abandonment of GUAE, Dio, most likely bitter for her not only betraying him, but getting away with it, attacked Sakuya, thinking that [[WebAnimation/OneMinuteMelee he would kill her in a minute]]. [[spoiler:Unfortunately for him, the student overcame the master, as Sakuya had both learned enough of Dio to survive his attacks and had studied his defeat by the hands of [[Pantheon/{{Power}} Jotaro Kujo]] extensively, and the battle ended with Dio being covered with knives.]]
** After this, Joel came after her, and with the help of Doomguy, managed to take her out. Unsurprisingly, she's opposed to Joel as a result of this.
* Besides what many would think, she seems to be fine with the fact she isn't appearing right after being brought back. At least she got to appear after a long hiatus. And she thinks that maybe Reisen deserve a spot in limelight.
* Some of the members of [[Pantheon/HighSchoolDxD Occult Research Club]] note that she looks like [[{{Expy}} Grayfia Lucifuge]] to them. Issei wonders in the back of his head [[InVinoVeritas what kind of person she is drunk]].
* Often has to make sure Lord Shen doesn't make his way through the Weapons house. These battles happen largely because of their skills with knives in combat.
* After hearing of her rebellion against Dio, Jolyne became interested in her, and the two have become steadfast allies, helped by the fact that [[Creator/MiyukiSawashiro they sound alike]].
* In terms of being friends with others, she may or may not be as close to others and mainly works with them on a professional level; one such person people theorize annoyingly is Youmu Konpaku, a fellow [[MysticalWhiteHair white-haired girl]] and stage 5 servant boss who also is a master of bladed-weaponry.
** Some people say Youmu tends to act as a fangirl towards Sakuya via [[CoolBigSis Onee-sama]]-[[OneeSama style]], but a few other parallels lead to the fact that both of them are notable ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' references; Youmu's said to be the Polnareff to Sakuya's Dio.
* While she's usually very calm and collected, do [[BewareTheQuietOnes NOT make her angry]]. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLAQm2OcC-4&fmt=22 She will chase you as long as necessary, something that not even her mistress is exempt from on occasions]].

[[folder:Mai (''Avatar'')]]
'''[[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Mai]], Goddess of [[KnifeOutline Outlining Knives]]'''
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mai_knives.png]]
* Demigoddess
* Symbol: A knife embedded in a wall.
* Alignment: TrueNeutral when with Azula/the Fire Nation, leans towards NeutralGood later on.
* Weapon of Choice: Throwing knives.
* Portfolio: VictoryIsBoring, KnifeOutline, BadassNormal, DeadpanSnarker, TheStoic, [[DieForOurShip Shipping Sacrifice]], EmotionlessGirl, NotSoStoic [[LoveRedeems When her Boyfriend is threatened]]
* Domains: Calm, Knives, Love
* Allies: '''[[Pantheon/SupportiveCombat Ty Lee]]''', [[Pantheon/{{Meals}} Iroh]], [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} Rachel Roth/Raven]], [[Pantheon/WeaponizedObjects Temari]], [[Pantheon/FriendsAndCompanions Kairi]]
* Former Enemies: [[Pantheon/{{Nature}} Avatar Aang]], [[Pantheon/ElementalPairings Katara]], [[Pantheon/RangedWeapons Sokka]], [[Pantheon/EarthAndRock Toph Beifong]]
* Enemies: [[Pantheon/VillainousAttitude Azula]], [[Pantheon/WeaponizedObjects Lester/Bullseye]], [[Pantheon/SupportMagic Führer King]] [[Pantheon/EyeAbilities Bradley]]
* Complicated Relationship with: '''[[Pantheon/BetrayalMotivation Zuko]]''' (currently on a "down", but time will tell what happens)
* Opposed by: [[DieForOurShip A portion of the Zutara fandom]] (she, for the most part, doesn't care about them unless they try to kill her off)
* Didn't really care about her ascension, though she was surprised to discover several people from her world had already ascended.
** Though to their credit, she was happily greeted by Ty Lee on her arrival, and despite their clashing personalities, the slightest of smiles played on her lips as she was given a bear hug.
* Mai has been trying to avoid Azula since her ascension, and Azula has been trying to capture/kill Mai since her ascension.
* While she will not comment on it, many believe that she has become friends with Temari and Raven due to their somewhat abrasive personalities towards those they don't care for and often those they do care for, as well as their ranged expertise.
* Does care for her little brother Tom-Tom, but often pretends not to.
* Sometimes confused for May and Mei, or vice-versa. All three are used to it by now, but are considering putting up signs in their temples with directions to the other temples.
* Doesn't really care for followers, but won't dissuade them as long as they don't bug her. (Though those who bring her fruit tarts and leave her alone otherwise she often looks on somewhat favorably.)
* Dislikes Bullseye, who says she was an amateur for not killing anybody with ''sharpened'' weapons, whereas he had killed hundreds with NoodleImplements.
--> '''Mai:''' Sure, let's ignore the fact that I wasn't ''trying'' to kill anyone.
* Stays away from the house of Emotion, due to her stoicism. Though rumors abound that she and Zuko have been seen together near the House of Love.
* Some of the more compassionate Gods gave a coo of sympathy on hearing of how she almost had her individuality drained out of her due to her noble upbringing. She just rolled her eyes and them a bit, before letting a surge of anger out by shouting at the more…stalkerish gods, "LEAVE ME ALONE!"
* Once, the Trollkaiger trolled her by showing her ''Webcomic/HowIBecameYours'' and its sequel while she was in her temple. While nobody else knows what her reaction was, several of the team's members were found later in the hospital with knives in…[[GroinAttack certain locations]].
** Also, she went missing for several hours afterwards and was later found visibly smiling. When questioned what she had done, her response was to look at Katara and tell her to not do the same thing…[[MurderTheHypotenuse or else]]. [[note]]Katara, for her part, was disgusted by the idea she would ever cheat on Aang.[[/note]]
* On a similar note, several of the gods ask if she ever had a daughter named Izumi. Sadly, both Zuko and Mai have been very tight lipped about the whole thing.

** They also have a rivalry with [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Ruby Rose]], one of their former followers, thofugh it's of a far more friendly type. They currently have a bit of a competition on who can use a scythe better, and they genuinely enjoyed each other's company. Though Soul's been slightly worried ever since Maka took interest in how Ruby's scythe is also a [[SniperRifle gun]]...
* Maka has recently had to correct a long-standing theory on her mother's name being Kami. It turns out it was a translation error (basically, Spirit was referring to the woman as his ex-wife.) This cause a bit of a stir as the supposedly only bit of definitive information on her was now false.
** Maka has become uncomfortable with discussing her mother in general recently. She's even admitted that [[AdaptationDeviation she is unsure on how her mother actually is as a person and how she's actually doing.]] This has become a larger issue since she hasn't appeared during any of the crisises in their universe. When Maka tried to rationalize her mother's lack of presence due to her avoiding Spirit, she was reminded that her father is willing to work with Stein (despite the latter's experiments on the former for the five years of their partnership that led to their fallout and led to Spirit meeting his future wife) and even managed to repair their friendship. Then when [[spoiler: Shibusen allied with the ''Witches'' to stop Asura and even ending their bitter centuries-long feud]], Maka was forced to admit that her mother really had no excuse for this. Since then, she's become tight-lipped and melancholic whenever she thinks about the implications.
** Soul eventually intervened and told the questioners that it wasn't cool they kept bringing it up since Maka is uncomfortable about the implications. However, he has promised to deliver a definitive answer should their superior ever reveal it. As of right now, people have ceased questioning Maka about her mother though many note that since then, she's become more amicable and openly nicer with her father, Spirit (especially since he would've died along with several other comrades in the final battle, if not for the timely intervention of Mabaa, the Witch Queen.)

* His other 'activity' is teasing other women. His favorite teasing victim is Signum, because 1) He likes breaking TheStoic. 2) She fights good as a sparring partner. 3) He feels like [[RelationshipVoiceActor they're destined to fight since the past, except last time, he remembered riding some sort of giant, and she had an angelic giant...]]
* Somehow [[Pantheon/{{Gaming}} Naoki Kashima]] managed to get him as one of his allies in a [[BonusBoss very rough fight]] to test the abilities of one of his followers, [[VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga Serph]].

** [[VideoGame/FateGrandOrder Nowadays]], Cú is known for being [[StoneWall nigh unkillable]]. [[MemeticMutation To him, everything is an arrow he can dodge.]]
* Is known to also possess hidden Berserker traits. Lancer usually kept it hidden, but if he faced the [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics same-named Lucavi]], he wouldn't mind elapsing to it to kill him, as he ''really'' hates that demon that brings shame to his name.
* In the [[VideoGame/FateGrandOrder Grand Order incident]] made some reveals on some alternate aspects of him that can be summoned, aside from the Lancer most are familiar with:
** What was believed to be a counterpart from the world where the Holy Grail War [[Anime/FatePrototype takes place in Tokyo]] resulted in just being a younger aspect of him during the middle of his training, behaving more energetic and somewhat naive compared to his older self.
** In the Holy Grail War that preceded the Fuyuki singularity, he was summoned as its respective Caster, using the runes taught to him by Scathach. It's in this form that he met the Master of Chaldea, assisting them through the singularity. He's known to be uncomfortable in this form due to lacking his trademark spear.
** During the E Pluribus Unum singularity, an imitation of him was created by Queen Medb with the use of a Holy Grail as an altered Berserker, being her ideal vision of him, an origin similar to Jeanne d'Arc Alter. In this state, he was able to, barely, tank Karna's Vasavi Shakti. Though, that version of Cú Chulainn was being supplied with unlimited mana from a Holy Grail and Karna was weakened. Still, some have wonder what a "normal" Berserker of the Hound of Ulster should be like.
*** An aspect of him that is similar to his Berserker form is used by Akechi Goro in his fight against the Phantom Thieves, This does not sit well with Cu, especially when it comes to Goro's [[AxCrazy Black Mask form]], which he sees as an even worse manifestation of his riastrad.
*** [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Zeus]], however, has some sort of idea of what a "normal" berserk Cú Chulainn would look like, being seen in [[VideoGame/{{Smite}} The Battleground of the Gods]]. He's described as a mighty spear warrior, but has ferocity/anger issues.
* Reunited with his old teacher Scáthach in the Pantheon. The Witch of Dun Scáith noted her student needed a bit of a refresher, citing "performance issues", so she arranged a fight with [[Pantheon/HairStyles Flynn]] and sealed him back into his younger self, Setanta. After a brutal fight, Scáthach declared herself satisfied and released Cú Chulainn to his true form and power. While the Lord of the Spear did gain some valuable experience, he's begged her not to repeat the lesson without some advance warning.
* Despite hanging around and occasionally fighting with or against Hercules, Cu Chulainn kind of avoids him when he's [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight maddened.]] Because that was the only form that could just at one point grab him and then [[Anime/CarnivalPhantasm turn him into a super destructive bullet known as]] [[https://youtu.be/qUNo7URfsQ4?t=5m39s Boome-Lancer.]]

* The incarnation/son of Lugh the Long-Handed, the Hound of Culann started out as Setanta where he gained the name "Cú Chulainn" after killing a guard dog and substituting it. At the age of seven, he was prophesized to live gloriously at the cost of dying young. As he get older,
Cú Chulainn trained under the warrior Scathach in order to make Emer's father let him marry her and Scathach was elevated the one who taught him how to master the Gae Bolg, a deadly spear capable of turning his enemies' insides outwards. Since then, he became Ulster's mightiest hero as he decimate entire armies led by Queen Medb with his might and training and more so with his ''riastrad'' [[HulkingOut or warp-spasms]] which culminated into this status his fight with Ferdiad, his comrade during his training under Scathach. Cú Chulainn's final fate varies in some versions, either he succumbs to his injuries from fighting Ferdiad or he died after Medb & Lugaid (in some versions, the Morrigan) planned to kill him by making him break his {{Geas}} to weaken him. In the latter, after being severely injured Cú Chulainn [[DiedStandingUp straps himself to a rock so that his enemies are fooled that he's still alive]], until a raven lands on his corpse that signals to his enemies his absolute death[[note]]some interpretations say it's the Morrigan in that form doing so out of spite[[/note]].
* The Hound of Culann ascended to the Trope Pantheons during its early days, mostly due to his infamous participation in [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight the Fifth Holy Grail War]] and ascended under the title of '''Divine Lord of [[BladeOnAStick Spears]]''' as the Gae Bolg is his infamous weapon; if it means having more people to fight for fun, Cú Chulainn accepted it for that. To accompany him, the people close to him Laeg, Ferdiad and Emer have been appointed as Heralds along with his separate Servant incarnations; it's even heartwarming to see the Hound hugging his closest contacts
since his death, but nobody took notice until the events last time he met them, he either witnessed them die (Laeg and Ferdiad) or they found out he did (Emer).
* The first group
of ''Unlimited Blade Works'', where people he earned decided to reunite with is Shirou Emiya and the attention of the Goddess of ZettaiRyouiki, Tohsaka Rin, who in turn helped him restore his fame.
* Likes to spar. Kenpachi has taken a slight liking to sparring
girls that loved him, but not as much as he fights Absolute Virtue (whom specifically Saber and Rin Tohsaka. Lancer liked Shirou a lot since he's such a good guy, enough for him to be open about his past to Shirou when asked and while Shirou likewise is also an avid sparring opponent). Kenpachi says "At least able to befriend a great hero like Lancer, he's very put off by how [[FriendlyEnemy he lasts better than [[RelationshipVoiceActor a certain clown Arrancar]]".
* His other 'activity'
can be chummy with those he was supposed to be enemies with]]. On that note, Saber is often threatened by his presence even if he's [[Manga/TodaysMenuForEmiyaFamily just there to eat Shirou's cooking]] and it took her a while to get used to him without fighting and that's because they last time they fought, they were both very hostile; Lancer himself thinks she's getting too worked up on it. As for Rin, Lancer resumed his teasing towards her and her displeasure is what amuses him a lot; some think this is his way of showing her his affections but Lancer denied those claims since he's not really romantically interested in her.
** The moment Lancer and Archer saw each
other women. His favorite teasing victim again, they began to fight like before; it took Saber and Rin to stop them from causing too much damage and both parties know this won't be over anytime soon. Lancer and Archer's rivalry is Signum, because 1) He likes breaking TheStoic. 2) She fights so great it violated the idea that most Heroic Spirits cannot keep their memories of previous Holy Grail Wars and made some perverted deities think [[FoeRomanticSubtext it might be something more]]; luckily for everyone, they are VitriolicBestBuds on a good as a sparring partner. 3) day though that doesn't stop them from being competitive. He feels like [[RelationshipVoiceActor and Caster also got off on the wrong foot since the war, but nowadays they're destined very civil with each other if a little snarky towards each other. For the Hassan of the Cursed Arm, Lancer was still sour that he killed him and hopes for a rematch while Cursed Arm insisted he needed to be intelligent that time and assassinating him per orders dealt two birds with one stone. As for Berserker AKA Hercules, whenever he's not a Servant the Hound finds him to be good company and sparring partner with similar life experiences to relate with but when he is, it's somewhat the same except he has to dread [[Anime/CarnivalPhantasm getting beaten up and also becoming]] [[https://youtu.be/qUNo7URfsQ4?t=5m39s Boome-Lancer]] [[Anime/CarnivalPhantasm since their previous comic escapades]].
** It's pretty obvious that Lancer is not happy to see his Master Kirei Kotomine, considering that he had to do his dirty work for him and the priest also forced him to hurt Rin at times, something he doesn't like. Kotomine hopes to have him under control again though that's easier said than done considering there are more people he's more loyal to and he is not willing to give them up anytime soon. Gilgamesh is also not pleased that Lancer's back, seeing him as just another mongrel to dominate over while Lancer is aiming to get him
to fight fair and square for once while Avenger also got his ire since he made circumstances that forced him spoiler:to fight Bazett [[spoiler:his supposed Master]]; Avenger himself couldn't care less but he does see how Bazett likes him so much for once.
** Cú Chulainn is very ecstatic that the Master of Chaldea has finally arrived and is ready to serve him again, finding him to be a way better Master than Kotomine was; he would even ask him to join on boar hunts as well. A perk of serving under Fujimaru is that he is now able to use his survival skills to the max, making him [[StoneWall near-invincible]] such as Protection from Arrows; when asked how can he avoid attacks which clearly aren't just arrows, Cú jokingly claims that [[MemeticMutation to him, everything is an arrow he can dodge]]. Also, joining his Heralds are his separate Servant incarnations, including his Alter version created by Queen Medb who was able to barely tank Karna's Vasavi Shakti [[note]]granted, Karna was weakened and he himself had unlimited mana from a Holy Grail[[/note]]. Cú can also switch into a Caster, but he loves using Gae Bolg a lot so he had his separate Caster self do that job, much to said self's chagrin.
** The Hound of Culann is also glad that his old teacher Scáthach is in the Pantheon. The Witch of Dun Scáith noted her student needed a bit of a refresher, citing "performance issues" so she arranged a fight with Flynn and sealed him back into his younger self, Setanta. After a brutal fight, Scáthach declared herself satisfied and released Cú Chulainn to his true form and power; while the Lord of the Spear did gain some valuable experience, he's begged her not to repeat the lesson without some advance warning. Speaking of going through harsh training, Achilles also relates to Cú on that front as well as other common ground like having at least one male lover (Ferdiad and Patroclus) and loving a good fight; they love to spar every now and again if they are available and often times, their teachers butt in to keep them in ship-shape.
** He has also reunited with Diarmuid Ua Duibhne, Vlad III (mostly his EXTRA incarnation), Karna and Fionn mac Cumhaill and together, they all form a group called "YARI-O" or as most other people call it, "[[Music/BackstreetBoys The Backspear Boys]]" which they also accept. They are mostly seen doing farming work, but will accept singing in concerts though so far no one has booked them yet. Besides, they normally spar with each other and serve Fujimaru anyways so there's no need to get worked up on those endeavours.
** Of course, he isn't happy to see Queen Medb of Connacht yet again as their enmity stems from the fact that she aims to [[EvilIsPetty steal Ulster's prized bull]] many times; she herself also hate his guts yet at times she lusts after him (which is why she created Cú Alter in the first place), something she questions quite often. But their bitter rivalry must take a backseat as they prioritize taking down the Beasts of Humanity as commanded by their Master, which he considers a good way to take his mind off of that.
* Aside from Medb, Cú Chulainn is also not pleased at seeing the Morrigan yet again since she played a part in his death in some versions of his life and seeing her at [[VideoGame/{{Smite}} the Battleground of the Gods]]. [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Some even speculate that]] [[CompositeCharacter the Morrigan is composited with Medb]]
since the past, except last time, Morrigan has affections for Cú which explains why Medb is lusting after him but so far, no one can confirm this rumour yet. The Morrigan herself is also angry at Cú since [[WomanScorned she thinks he remembered riding some sort rejected her when she wants him]] in one telling which may play a part in his death; their meetings nowadays are very hostile.
* The Hound

* Somehow [[Pantheon/{{Gaming}} Naoki Kashima]]
total chaos clashed]] and is able to be summoned both as a demon and as a Persona by Kazuya, the Demi-Fiend, Flynn, Raidou Kuzunoha and all of the Wild Card Persona Users; he'll obey them the same way he'll obey Fujimaru. The Demi-Fiend in particular managed to get him as one of his allies in a [[BonusBoss very rough fight]] to test the abilities of one of his followers, [[VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga Serph]]. In Serph who groaned at having to fight him yet again in the Pantheons and in return, Naoki suggested him to use a [[Franchise/FireEmblem an [[VideoGame/FireEmblem Axereaver spear]] to battle Barbatos Goetia.
** Somehow,
Goetia which is something that Cú is considering since Barbatos is a very dangerous opponent, having [[HeroKiller killed many heroes in his world before]] though he would rather kepp hanging on to Gae Bolg instead. Also ever since, Cú Chulainn being involved with {{Bonus Boss}}es seems to be a thing, as [[Pantheon/SpecializedNarratives Yu Narukami]] Narukami can say that a woman the Velvet Room attendant named Margaret has also summoned him.
him. He also doesn't like YHVH and Lucifer like everybody else, as he feels their tyranny and social darwinism respectively are philosophies he knows most people won't get behind.
* Nearly lost Cú Chulainn appears to have different standards of heroism, as he feels heroes are defined by their legendary deeds, not virtue. Added to that fact are him having no problems killing innocents or guarding something while others are dying should his position superior commands him to and disregarding those who are not someone he knows aside, often to their doom. This trait of his is heavily criticized by Marcus Cole AKA Statesman who sees him as rather unheroic for a demigod hero and demands him to shape it to modern times (or at least what Statesman expects a hero to be); Cú for his part ignores him and finding him rather ancy to be worked up over his values.
** Of course, Cú Chulainn is not that heartless as he does respects the hard work of everyday people, he will even help them out whenever he's free and he won't hold anything against them, because this kind of virtue is hard to see in the Ulster of his time. It's why respects Misaki Ayuzawa, Hinagiku Katsura and Sonico for working hard to make their ends meet, so much so that he wouldn't hit on them if they meet to Misaki's relief.
* Speaking of hitting on women, the Ulster warrior [[{{Bishonen}} is ridiculously handsome]] that they flock to him instantly because of it and not even
after getting together with Emer stopped that because she knows it's not love he's experiencing with other women and his heart is for her only. As such, he's a frequenter of the sub-Houses of Pantheon/LustfulActs [[Pantheon/LustfulBehavior and Behavior]] where Kyu Sugardust enjoys his company, though she's a little baffled at Cú and Emer's kind of marriage and outlook on extramarital sex since she's used to respecting couples being together. Princess Cadence on the other hand is also baffled at Cú but also angry at him because to her, it's unfathomable for the wife to be okay with her husband sleeping around with other women even after Emer telling her he will always be faithful to her.
* Cú Chulainn is a warrior who loved to fight and its thrills, but not to the point of bloodshed because he knows fair fights are supposed to prevent that. Still, notable {{Blood Knight}}s like Kenpachi Zaraki, Eugene Gallardo and Undyne found him to be [[WorthyOpponent a worthwhile opponent]]. In Kenpachi's own words, "''At least he lasts better than [[RelationshipVoiceActor a certain clown Arrancar]]''". Other fighters Cú enjoys sparring with are King and Wamuu, with King reminding him of Bazett Fraga [=McRemitz=] who is also a masculine-dressing woman that admired him [[spoiler:and was supposed to be his Master]] and Wamuu also fights honorably to a fault, something Cú can totally get behind even if both of them can get dirty in their tactics.
* Cú also has a soft spot for kids as evidenced by the fact that the Ulster Youth Corps. died while he was recovering and he avenged them by warp-spasming to slaughter their killers and [[MyGreatestFailure regretting killing his son Connla]] when he didn't tell his dad his name out of tradition of not telling your opponent your name. This is why he hates the Child Abuse Supporters for hurting children without a second thought, and while they usually scoff at him they do become cautious since the Gae Bolg can either stop your heart or turn your internal organs inside out, in which neither are pleasant fates.
* He's also got some ferocity/anger issues, as [[Pantheon/{{Electricity}} Zeus]] noted when he witnessed him back at [[VideoGame/{{Smite}} the Battleground of the Gods]] as well as accounts of both his ''riastrad'' rampages and one time when he was young, he killed someone who was sent to wake him up because he was abruptly awoken; this might explain why he is usually very friendly and open especially as a Lancer, probably because it helps him cool down significantly. Two residents of the sub-house of Pantheon/{{Anger}}, Namor the Sub-Mariner and Natsu Dragneel relate to Cú in letting their anger overtake their judgement and while he's a lot more chummy with Natsu with relating over being nice to their enemies (enough for them to turn over a new leaf in Natsu's case), Namor is too prideful to ever hang out with Cú which he considers fine but he knows Namor can't really go anywhere with that kind of behaviour.
* The Lancer Servant has a [[BornUnlucky Luck stat with the rank of E]], symbolising his fated early death. This abysmal luck ended up embodied in either painful deaths or constant beatings of humour, with the latter evidenced by
[[Anime/CarnivalPhantasm one instance]] of [[ButtMonkey being constantly killed for laughs all the time]], something that even made Kenny wince. He managed to reverse the events and even survived a bone crushing volleyball crash on the head, one that was designed to smash his head by [[Franchise/FinalDestination Death]].

getting around with ladies and occasionally joy in fighting others with or against Hercules, Cu Chulainn kind of avoids him when he's [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight maddened.]] Because that was the only form that could just at one point grab him Hound; they both have enjoyed their drinkings and then [[Anime/CarnivalPhantasm turn him into sparrings together like bros, as Mathilda and Laeg can attest.
* "''You asked for
a super destructive bullet known as]] [[https://youtu.be/qUNo7URfsQ4?t=5m39s Boome-Lancer.]]cursed, crimson spear?''"


** During the E Pluribus Unum singularity, an imitation of him was created by Queen Medb with the use of a Holy Grail as an altered Berserker, being her ideal vision of him, an origin to Jeanne d'Arc Alter. In this state, he was able to, barely, tank Karna's Vasavi Shakti. Though, that version of Cú Chulainn was being supplied with unlimited mana from a Holy Grail and Karna was weakened. Still, some have wonder what a "normal" Berserker of the Hound of Ulster should be like.

* Though formally a follower to [[Pantheon/{{Headwear}} 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.
* Has been compared to [[Pantheon/{{Shape}} Alucard]] and [[Pantheon/MotivationsForHeroism Sol Badguy]] since he shares [[Creator/JojiNakata the same voice]] as theirs.
