[[folder:"Sensei"]]Given recent chapters, we may be fast approaching a time where Sensei becomes viable for the Pantheon.

With one addition. Let me know if you think that the titles should be changed or merged.

* Followers: Black Mist, Artificial Human Noumu, League of Villains

* Enemies: [[{{Pantheon/Heroes}} All Might and Izuku Midoriya]], [[{{Pantheon/Heroes}} the Heroes Pantheon]]
* A villain from the first generation of Quirk users, "Sensei" possesses that Quirk that allows him to steal the Quirks of others, and to bestow those same Quirks onto others. Using his powers to rally others under him, he became a super-villain that conquered Japan in the past.
** Sensei can transfer multiple Quirks to individuals, [[PowerAtAPrice but most bodies cannot handle the strain and end up as mindless dolls.]] [[spoiler: This creates Artificial Humans such as Noumu.]]
** In the past, he transferred a Quirk that stockpiles power to his younger brother, who was opposing him, unaware his brother had a Quirk that allowed him to pass his power onto others. [[spoiler:The two Quirks mutated and became "One For All".]]
* Tomura Shigaraki is the leader of the League of Villains. Although sometimes child-like, such as seeing the invasion of U.A. as a game, his Quirk, Disintegration, allows him to disintegrate anything he touches with all five fingers, from people to thick steel plates.
* Sensei is the villain responsible for inflicting the crippling injury upon All Might in their last encounter, although he himself did not get off unscathed either from their battle. Because he has yet to recover from his injuries, he usually communicates with others through a screen that obscures his appearance.
** Regardless, All Might knows of All For One's presence in the Pantheon, and stands in staunch opposition to All for One.
* Although a villain, All For One seems to genuinely care for those he considers allies, as part of his enmity towards All Might is because the hero defeated all of All for One's former comrades. This is expressed when he made sure the League of Villains run by Tomura got out safely when he and All Might began to clash.
** He is determined to destroy All Might, having killed the previous owner of One For All, Shimura Nana, and he even took in [[spoiler: her grandson, Shimura Tenko/Tomura Shigaraki]], and turned him into a villain, [[MagnificentBastard knowing full well what effect this would have on All Might]].
** It is unknown if Tomura is aware of his distant relationship with All Might's predecessor. All that is known about his intense hatred for All Might is that he accidentally killed [[spoiler: his own father]] with his own Quirk, and that he hates All Might and all other heroes for not being there to save him. The one who did come to save him was All For One.
* Above all else, All for One ensured that his student and successor, Shigaraki Tomura (born [[spoiler:Shimura Tenko]], would be able to stand on his own, even after his defeat on the mortal plane by All Might and subsequent imprisonment, hoping the PowerOfHate would turn Shigaraki into the successor he groomed him to be.
* Initially, Tomura was without a creed of his own to follow, and questioned it when Stain, the Hero-Killer, over-shadowed him. But a conversation with Midoriya gave him clarity - to create a world without All Might, and to expose the fragility of "justice". Now that he is in the Pantheon, he has extended this creed to all the Heroes who stand as "pillars of justice" in their world. All For One was most pleased by the growth of his student, and hopes that he and his student will make even more allies.
** Because of his frequent words of encouragement to Tomura, it is actually said by many that he's a better 'father' to Tomura than many abusive father figures, despite also being the most dangerous villain in his world.

* Beneath the Multiverse and the Pantheon, there rests an oceanic, subconscious realm comprised of "reactive matter" - a Dark Multiverse. Within this realm, worlds live and worlds die, worlds created from the fears and nightmares of all those who live. One being presided over this nightmarish realm - Barbatos, a dark horned-god whose presence is felt through other evil deities.
* Barbatos' existence was initially unknown to the Pantheon, but his presence was revealed after, [[ComicBook/DarkNightsMetal after he attempted to drag Earth down into the Dark Multiverse]].
** Dream of the Endless revealed Barbatos' true nature: the Dark Multiverse was originally home to the World Forge, the place where [[TheMaker The Forger]] [[ThePowerOfCreation would hammer out worlds from the hopes and fears of living beings]], creating new worlds from the "metal of possibility". Those worlds that were stable became part of the Orrery of Worlds; the twisted, unstable worlds were once destroyed by Barbatos to have their energies returned to the Forge, as he was the Forger's Great Dragon. However, he killed the Forger and allowed the Forge to darken.
* Barbatos was a former DestroyerDeity, but rebelled and chose to be a conqueror instead. Beerus the Destroyer is nothing short of disgusted with the dark god; while he destroys things([[EvilIsPetty and often for poor reasons]]), he's trying to keep balance. Barbatos is just like Merged Zamasu, except arguably worse in scope and a destroyer instead of creator. Merged Zamasu hates Barbatos as well, though it's more projection of his own wicked nature and hating any comparison. That, and the Dark Multiverse is an eternal reminder in his deranged worldview of the evil of mortals and failure of the gods.
* The Creation Trio harbor a deep loathing towards Barbatos. They are dragon guardians of dimensions, namely time(Dialga), space(Palkia) and antimatter(Giratina). And as Barbatos is a dragon god who once maintained dimensional stability, that later went rogue, he is an abomination that must be vanquished by them. Giratina in particular takes umbridge since while it is a scary looking {{Dracolich}} guarding the creepy-looking Distortion World, it would never shirk its duty and fall to the depravity Barbatos has.
* Although now trapped at the bottom of the Dark Multiverse while the World Forge burns anew again, Barbatos' influence is still felt within the Pantheon, and he schemes to break his chains and enter the Dark Multiverse of the Pantheon to raise the denizens there up against the Pantheon, and to drag the Pantheon itself down into darkness.
* As a byproduct of the conflict with Barbatos, the World Forge became accessible to the Pantheon, and the Tenth Metal of possibility that resides there is now being considered for use in constructing new structures in the Pantheon. However, the immense power of the Tenth Metal means any materials are kept under Maximum Security, and only allowed for use by a very select few deities [[spoiler:after use by the Justice League inadvertently shattered the Source Wall]].
* Due to Barbatos' association with nightmares and fears, especially his use of them in torturing his enemies, he has many allies among nightmare deities, but also a number of new enemies:
** Freddy Krueger and Pitch Black both sought him out for the purpose of combining forces and spreading fear and terror throughout the Pantheon.
** Darkrai has no love whatsoever for the bat-god who revels in the nightmares and suffering of others, and is part of the forces that fight against those in the Dark Multiverse who would seek to free their master.
** Antasma leapt at the chance to join Barbatos' side, perhaps seeing the bat-god as the source of his ascension into what he is now, as it was a nightmare Antasma fed on that turned him from a regular bat into a creature of nightmares. Perhaps, so he believes, he was intended to be Barbatos' avatar in the Mario world.
*** However, when Antasma directed Barbatos to assail the dreams of Luigi, [[BerserkButton Mario]] wasted no time jumping into his brother's dreams to team up with Dreamy Luigi and forcing Barbatos and Antasma out.
* A disturbing theory began circulating around the Pantheon that the Dark Multiverse which Barbatos hails from is just one section of a far vaster domain, one which may be directly responsible for the creation of many of the darker entities in the Pantheon. [[Pantheon/CthulhuMythos H.P. Lovecraft]], [[Pantheon/TheatricProduction James Cameron]] and [[{{Franchise/Alien}} H.R. Giger]] all based their respective creations upon nightmares which they themselves have had, and their nightmares reached out to all those terrified by their works and gave their creations shape, many of which have made their way into the Pantheon proper.
* Disturbingly enough Melkor gets along swimmingly with Barbatos. Like him, he was once loyal to his creator and a guardian of reality. However Melkor's envy, pride and contempt led him to disrupt and marr creation as the god of the Dark Multiverse did, and they share a goal of [[DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans despoiling reality into a miserable state of despair and fear]]. To say their alliance sent a chill down the spine of those in the Pantheon/GrandUnitedAllianceOfGood is an understatement.
* Most of his army, such as the Dark Knights, consists of [[AllianceOfAlternates alternate selves allying together]]. As such, Funny Valentine is capable of exploiting NeverTheSelvesShallMeet quite easily. This and his utter disgust to the Dark Multiverse [[EvenEvilHasStandards despite his villainy]] makes him a thorn in Barbatos' side.
* " '''All roads lead back to darkness''' ".

NOTE: This next part is a big part of the reason why this profile is tentative, so I need to see if the next piece of info is accepted or not.

* While it cannot be confirmed, some suspect that Barbatos' Dark Multiverse may, in fact, be the realm where terrible fiction and fan-fiction alike 'exist', the horror of their existence or perversion of real universes causing them to manifest there in a cycle of horrific creation and destruction. As such, he rules over every failed story and every failed character within those stories and all of them desire to usurp the original characters and the true stories.
** One of the greater dangers of the Dark Multiverse is that it is also a place which villains could have their own desires fulfilled, as many villains sided with Barbatos for the promise of having their own worlds to rule.

[[folder:World Forge]]'''[[ComicBook/DarkNightsMetal The World Forge]], [[UltimateForge The Birthplace of Universes]]'''
* Description: [[InfinityPlusOneElement Home of the Tenth Metal]] [[{{DCComics}} and source of the DC Multiverse]]. Located within the [[{{Shadowland}} Dark Multiverse]] ruled by Barbatos.
* Symbol: A Forge in a celestial constellation
* Alignment: Formerly ChaoticEvil, now TrueNeutral
* Portfolio: {{Shadowland}}, ThePowerOfCreation, InfinityPlusOneElement, CreationMyth, UltimateForge, ImaginationBasedSuperpower
* Domains: Creation, Imagination, Emotion and Desires
* The existence of the World Forge was revealed to the Pantheon in the midst of [[Comic/DarkNightsMetal Barbatos' assault on the DC Multiverse]] when Dream of the Endless spoke of it to Superman and Batman. It is the source of the Tenth Metal, a metal of pure possibility and the element from which universes and matter in the DC Multiverse are created. It was once dark due to [[TheUsurper Barbatos' actions]], but the Forge is now ignited once more.
* The Tenth Metal of the Forge, also known as the Element X used by New Gods, is an immensely powerful element, and the Metal can be used to sync with the trace amounts found in all matter in the DC Multiverse to accomplish miraculous feats. However, the energy of such a process was so overwhelming that [[spoiler: it shattered the [[Pantheon/OtherDominions Source Wall]], revealing all the secrets and dangers from beyond (and opened up a hole into the Pantheon), and had side-effects resulting from the sublimated members of those who used the Tenth Metal. As a result, the Main House deemed the Forge off-limits, and the Tenth Metal to be put under maximum security.
* The World Forge, and the Dark Multiverse within which it resides, is highly reactive to the thoughts and emotions of living beings, whether they be good or evil. As a result, potentially trillions of alternate worlds are able to be born from the World Forge. Formerly, it was the Forger's duty to hammer out stable worlds from people's hopes and fears and allow those worlds to join the Orrery, while Barbatos' duty was to destroy the twisted, unstable worlds. Now, Barbatos is in chains, and a new Forger has yet to be found to tend to the stable worlds.
** Because access to the Dark Multiverse and the World Forge is restricted, it is unknown whether the Dark Multiverse contains worlds where the members of the GUAE have their desires made manifest, though the Pantheon as a whole shudder to think of the possibilities of all the twisted worlds in the Dark Multiverse, made from the desires of GUAG and GUAE alike, potentially rising up to assail the Pantheon proper.
* The World Forge is native to the DC Cosmology, though [[Pantheon/MainHouse Ugo]] has theorized that the World Forge and its Tenth Metal are just one manifestation of the "powers of creation", comparing Tenth Metal to the [[Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic Rukh]] which is the foundation of all matter and life in his native universe.
* [[{{Pantheon/Anger}} Altair]] is barred completely from going anywhere close to the World Forge, though that has not stopped the Creation from wondering if such a phenomenon like the Forge is responsible for the manifestation of a Creator's story as a Universe in her world. Meteora, on the other hand, is one of the few granted unrestricted access to the World Forge for study. For her, the World Forge is strong evidence of her theories on the relationship between Creators and Creations, as well as the fans of said Creations.
* [[{{Pantheon/Demons}} Samael]] has been asked whether he was aware of the World Forge's existence when he made the DC Universe under the guidance of [[{{Main/God}} the Presence]], and if the World Forge had any connection to his powers and those of his brother and Father. Lucifer simply shrugged and said nothing.

* Description: [[InfinityPlusOneElement Home of the Tenth Metal]] [[DCComics and source of the DC Multiverse]]. Located within the [[{{Shadowland}} Dark Multiverse]] ruled by Barbatos.
* Symbol: A Forge in a celestial constellation
* Alignment: Formerly ChaoticEvil, now TrueNeutral
* Portfolio: {{Shadowland}}, ThePowerOfCreation, InfinityPlusOneElement, CreationMyth, UltimateForge, ImaginationBasedSuperpower
* Domains: Creation, Imagination, Emotion and Desires
* The existence of the World Forge was revealed to the Pantheon in the midst of [[Comic/DarkNightsMetal Barbatos' assault on the DC Multiverse]] when Dream of the Endless spoke of it to Superman and Batman. It is the source of the Tenth Metal, a metal of pure possibility and the element from which universes and matter in the DC Multiverse are created. It was once dark due to [[TheUsurper Barbatos' actions]], but the Forge is now ignited once more.
** Due to the demiurgic nature of the Tenth Metal found in the Forge, it is suspected that the Tenth Metal element bears some connection to the powers possessed by various Creator Gods, and so steps have been taken by the Main House to ensure that it is not readily accessed by any of the evil-aligned Gods in the Pantheon.
* The Tenth Metal of the Forge, also known as the Element X used by New Gods, is an immensely powerful element, and the Metal can be used to sync with the trace amounts found in all matter in the DC Multiverse to accomplish miraculous feats. However, the energy of such a process was so overwhelming that [[spoiler: it shattered the [[Pantheon/OtherDominions Source Wall]], revealing all the secrets and dangers from beyond (and opened up a hole into the Pantheon), and had side-effects resulting from the sublimated members of those who used the Tenth Metal. As a result, the Main House deemed the Forge off-limits, and the Tenth Metal to be put under maximum security.
* The World Forge, and the Dark Multiverse within which it resides, is highly reactive to the thoughts and emotions of living beings, whether they be good or evil. As a result, potentially trillions of alternate worlds are able to be born from the World Forge. Formerly, it was the Forger's duty to hammer out stable worlds from people's hopes and fears and allow those worlds to join the Orrery, while Barbatos' duty was to destroy the twisted, unstable worlds. Now, Barbatos is in chains, and a new Forger has yet to be found to tend to the stable worlds.
** Because access to the Dark Multiverse and the World Forge is restricted, it is unknown whether the Dark Multiverse contains worlds where the members of the GUAE have their desires made manifest, though the Pantheon as a whole shudder to think of the possibilities of all the twisted worlds in the Dark Multiverse, made from the desires of GUAG and GUAE alike, potentially rising up to assail the Pantheon proper.
* The World Forge is native to the DC Cosmology, though [[Pantheon/MainHouse Ugo]] has theorized that the World Forge and its Tenth Metal are just one manifestation of the "powers of creation", comparing Tenth Metal to the [[Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic Rukh]] which is the foundation of all matter and life in his native universe.
* Currently, the Forge is safe-guarded by [[Pantheon/MainHouse The Holy Trinity]] to prevent anyone from gaining access to the Forge and the Tenth Metal that lies within it.[[/folder]]

* Although now trapped at the bottom of the Dark Multiverse while the World Forge burns anew again, Barbatos' influence is still felt within the Pantheon, and he schemes to break his chains and enter the Dark Multiverse of the Pantheon to raise the denizens there up against the Pantheon, and to drag the Pantheon itself down into darkness.
*As a byproduct of the conflict with Barbatos, the World Forge became accessible to the Pantheon, and the Tenth Metal of possibility that resides there is now being considered for use in constructing new structures in the Pantheon. However, the immense power of the Tenth Metal means any materials are kept under Maximum Security, and only allowed for use by a very select few deities [[spoiler:after use by the Justice League inadvertently shattered the Source Wall]].
* The GUAD has shown a disturbing interest in Barbatos, because his final goal was to destroy all positive and negative matter worlds [[spoiler:by shooting the Over-Monitor with the astral brain of the Anti-Monitor]], and because his former purpose in the World Forge was to destroy all failed worlds, just as he sought to destroy the Multiverse and leave the Dark Multiverse remaining as the sole existence.

** Dream of the Endless revealed Barbatos' true nature: the Dark Multiverse was originally home to the World Forge, the place where [[TheMaker The Forger]] [[ThePowerOfCreation would hammer out worlds from the hopes and fears of living beings]], creating new worlds from the "metal of possibility". Those worlds that were stable became part of the Orrery of Worlds; the twisted, unstable worlds were once destroyed by Barbatos to have their energies returned to the Forge, as he was the Forger's Great Dragon. However, he killed the Forger and allowed the Forge to darken.
