* Opposed by: The House of Magic, the Warhammer 40000 universe
* Under watch by: The Houses of Crime and Justice
* Eons ago, [[DivineConflict there was a war in Heaven]] by Lucifer for control of Heaven. The angel Aztar would side with him, but repent his sins and pray for redemption. The Presence answered those prayers and determined he would become a champion for justice; becoming the Spirit of Vengeance, ensuring no sinner would escape justice. He would punish all [[KarmaHoudini karma houdinis]], one man at a time, [[CruelAndUnusualDeath no matter how grisly]], [[OmniscientMoralityLicense all part of the Presence's ineffable plan]]. To keep the Spectre grounded, he would take on human hosts. The most noteworthy and current is Jim Corrigan, a 1930s detective killed by criminals. Later on Crispus Allen would also take the role of the Spectre. In the pantheon, Hal Jordan spent time as the Spectre and tried to reshape him into the Spirit of Redemption [[TheAtoner to make up for his own actions as Parallax]]. They would discover [[DemonicPossession the true nature of Parallax]], and the Spectre would help with Hal's revival.
* At first, the Spectre assumed that YHVH was the same as Yahweh aka the Presence, his multiverse's God. He figured that [[GodIsEvil his attitude]] was some sort of SecretTestOfCharacter like the time He acted [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/10/104521/2126072-presence.jpg completely insane]]. It'd later turn out YHVH was ''not'' the Presence, and the Spectre was offended by the Mad God of Order's actions as God. The Spectre got along better with God in the House of Faith, but made it clear "You are not the Creator I serve". Of course, since his Creator has ascended, he defers strictly to Him.
* As the Spectre, his job is to punish evil-doers; specifically, those [[KarmaHoudini who escaped mortal judgement]]. As such while he hates the GUAE on principle, most did get their just desserts and aren't a focus; [[StoryBreakerPower which may be for the best]]. The Justice League and Justice Society of America appreciate the help, but they find him [[HorrifyingHero seriously disturbing]] and [[CruelAndUnusualDeath the sadistic punishments he performs]] go against [[ThouShaltNotKill their own moralities]]. Still, it's even worse to tell him not to kill since [[AndIMustScream he has ways around that]]. The Spectre may not have found friends with the superhero community, but he has found friendship with Nemesis and Johnny Blaze. Though the Spectre's specialty isn't punishing people for hubris, he thinks she's doing a great job. Him and Johnny Blaze have a ''lot'' in common for being spirits of vengeance. Having once served under Lucifer, Aztar's not going to complain about this.
* ''Hates'' the Godhand. Their mission statement to pervert the very concept of karma so [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished goodness is punished]] and [[KarmaHoudini evil is rewarded]] [[BerserkButton struck a nerve with the Spectre]]. Guts is glad to have him on his side, and the Godhand [[OhCrap are terrified]]. His views on this matter have led the Spectre to pity Ramza Beouvle greatly.
* Though ultimately a force of justice, the Spectre [[GoodIsNotNice not a nice guy]]. As in, ''[[HeroWithAnFInGood borderline villainous]]''. He possesses an astounding LackOfEmpathy and [[{{Sadist}} grim satisfaction in punishments]], only alleviated by [[AssholeVictim his victims being far more evil than he could ever be]]. It's why he's bonded to a human host in the first place; the Presence realizes he needs humanity to keep him in check. Despite his dark personality, [[OmniscientMoralityLicense he's permitted to do so because it works out in God's favor]]. Of course, that may play into why the Presence hasn't taken the burden of being the Spirit of Vengeance off of him; He needs the Spectre for a job, but cannot accept him until he learns humanity.
* It's worth noting that Aztar's not the original Spirit of Vengeance. That would belong to Eclipso, who fell to evil completely and has become the poster boy for DarkIsEvil and one of the deadliest, [[OmnicidalManiac most omnicidal]] beings in existence. No matter what you think about the Spectre, he's way better suited for the job than Eclipso. And even he thinks Robot Santa goes too far in his KnightTemplar ways.
* The House of Magic is no fan of the Spectre. When he was tricked by Eclipso into thinking magic was the source of evil, the Spectre went on a rampage without a human host to ground him, devastating the sorcerers of Earth and ''killing'' the wizard Shazam. They've warned the Spectre never to try this again, and are preparing to take him down just in case. Nowadays, the Spectre figures that Melkor is the source of evil.
** Was happy when an old Justice Society colleague of his, Kent Nelson, ascended to the pantheon as the host for Doctor Fate. When they finally met Nabu was wary of him at first, due to the fact that he himself was the final victim of the aforementioned rampage against magic. Seeing as how it was a hostless Azar that had done the deed, Fate agreed to overlook this, and will work with him so long as he has a human host.
* In spite of his loyalty to the idea of Justice, both that house and the House of Crime is keeping their eye on Aztar. He has a bad tendency to declare that AllCrimesAreEqual. Mercifully for reality, it's not to the extent of [[OmnicidalManiac the Dark Judges]]. At the very least, he and the Living Tribunal get along due to having previous teamed up to protect their respective universes. The Presence Himself had to warn the Spectre to never interfere with the Warhammer 40000 universe. The sheer [[CrapsackWorld grimdarkness]] and evil of that universe would drive him completely insane.
* There are a number of supervillains out there whom the Spectre has tried to judge, only to be hit by TheWorfEffect. He tried to judge Darkseid, however the BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil made it futile. Darkseid would later have his followers humiliate him in [[ComicBook/{{FinalCrisis}} his fall from Heaven]]. The Spectre also tried to judge Nekron after Nekron made him a Black Lantern, however as he was TheSoulless it didn't work. The Spectre still wishes to make them pay for their massive amounts of sins. The Spectre also isn't permitted to judge [[Pantheon/{{Laughter}} the Joker]] or Vandal Savage. The Joker, being criminally insane, can't be judged for his actions. Vandal however has the Mark of Cain, so is already punished. The Spectre finds this outrageous, and Vandal has taken advantage of this. Also, he's unclear as what to do with [[Pantheon/{{MindGames}} Kirei Kotomime]] due to getting his just desserts but being revived.
* Despite TheWorfEffect getting the best of him, the Spectre has managed to fight against a fair number of [[EldritchAbomination eldritch beings]]. Such as the time he wrestled with the Anti-Monitor at the dawn of time, preventing him from subverting creation. Whenever the Anti-Monitor tries to attack the pantheon, he's the first to got at him.
* Naturally, the Spectre spends time in the Houses of Angels and Ghosts. Many angels find him creepy, even the powerful Archangel Michael and Manwe. Sure, as a force of justice and loyalty to God he's on their side, but they don't like his NominalHero nature. Michael in particular feels he reminds him of [[KnightTemplar his more ruthless days]], and Aztar has stated that he's not the same Michael as the one from his multiverse. The House of Ghosts are for the most part scared of him and would rather he stay away.
* Naturally, the Spectre's no fan of Lucifer, however does admit he's better than YHVH. Or the Castlevania, for that matter. The SMT one, however, the Spectre's oddly amiable with. He can get behind his desire for judgement and justice, but believes he needs to abandon YHVH completely to be worthy of justice. Doesn't like DemonicPossession, due to his experiences with Asmodel hijacking him and Parallax getting bonded with him. [[spoiler:Or the time Mxyzptlk took over him]].
* Heavily disapproves of the destructive Galactus and Beerus for all they've done, however they were quick to point out despite their "villainy" they serve a higher purpose. [[NotSoDifferent Much like the Spectre, really]]. The Spectre seems to be more accepting of Eliphas. Often hangs out in the House of Vengeance. As a vengeful spirit, he treats Hisako as a "little niece" of sorts.
* Due to his own experience fighting [[TheAntiGod the Great Evil Beast]], the Spectre worries about the PrimordialChaos. Particularly concerned with Amatsu-Mikaboshi, who comes off as an even worse version of Nekron to him.

* Conflicting Opinion
** Towards: [[Pantheon/TimeManipulation Homura Akemi]]
** From: [[Pantheon/OpposingFate Eldrad Ultharan]], [[Pantheon/AuthorityFigures Jim Raynor]]
* Opposes: [[Pantheon/AuthorityFigures Present and Future Zen'o]] ([[spoiler:for the most part]])
* The personification of the human race. Spent 40,000 years manipulating humanity from the shadows before events forced him to take a more active role. Did not want to be worshiped, but humanity needed a god and he was the only one up to it. That said, he has [[https://youtu.be/Pq-6aj9sNvo?t=1m45s had some success in convincing them he's not really one…just better]].
* Ironically, while he is himself a rather "glass half-full" kind of guy, his power is proportional to the [[WorldHalfEmpty grimdarkness]] of the dimension he is in at the time. In Manga/{{Bokurano}}-land he is mightier than O-Haruhi-Sama, and in [[SugarBowl Teletubby-land]] he wields less than half his usual might, though still possessing great power. It's probably because he [[StrongAsTheyNeedToBe doesn't really need much power in worlds like the latter]] anyway, where things tend to be going fine.
* [[http://youtu.be/97CmxA1FA5s?t=14m7s Would like to note he does]] '''[[AvertedTrope not]]''' [[FantasticRacism want to exterminate xeno life wherever it is, and wouldn't mind living in peace with other alien races]]. [[http://youtu.be/97CmxA1FA5s?t=14m15s He'd just prefer they accept his idea of peace (mainly the aliens under his rule) and not the aliens' idea of peace (like exterminating all life in the galaxy or keeping humans like zoo animals).]] Furthermore, he thinks the current Imperium's goal of trying to exterminate all aliens in the galaxy is not only impossible but also impractical, and is working day and night to fix this problem.
** However, he originally [[http://youtu.be/6-9XSiNfgk0?t=10m51s refused to allow the Tau to join the Imperium]] due to the fact they [[SeriousBusiness refuse to fight in melee]], but changed his mind when [[spoiler:Magnus]] informed him about [[http://youtu.be/6-9XSiNfgk0?t=15m22s one Tau named Commander Farsight who does fight that way and leads a small rebel faction of like-minded Tau]].
* For some reason, many of his followers have an intense hatred of ponies, especially [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the divine ones]] in the Pantheon. Same thing goes for furries or anyone from the ''Starcraft'' universe. What his own views of these species are, well, that's one of the many questions about him that nobody knows.
* He learned of an {{Expy}} of his that is the BigBad in ''TabletopGame/StrikeLegion'', and after looking at her rule over her own [[TheEmpire Imperium]], he is ready to confront her for her crimes against Humanity should she ever ascend to the Pantheon, though is also pulling some strings in the Celestial Bureaucracy to ensure that she never ascends at all.
** His actions in his own universe were made out of necessity and the current state of his Imperium was beyond his control but his expy's actions are needlessly cruel and evil, plus her insistence on forcing Humanity to worship her as God is anathema to him.
* The God Emperor is the only being the Chaos Gods ever truly feared. He is the greatest embodiment of Order in their home universe and their eternal enemy, so much so that the Dark Gods have dubbed him as the Anathema.
** The God Emperor does not oppose the Chaos Gods for petty reasons such as power or influence, but because of his love and dedication to all Humanity. Without the Emperor to oppose them, the Chaos Gods would taint Mankind with their corruption, twisting and defiling all Humankind by their dark powers. His love for Mankind is so great that even on the brink of death, he chose to be eternally preserved upon the Golden Throne for all time, neither living nor dead. His will is constantly challenging the Dark Gods even as his body decays, trapping him in eternal torment as his soul suffers agony beyond measure lighting the Astronomicon to light the way for the Imperium.
*** What makes his sacrifice even greater is that he could have let himself die and be reborn in a new body but a single moment of lapse in concentration would result in Terra being overwhelmed by legions of Daemons, that would mercilessly butcher the hundreds of billions of people living on the planet and turn the homeworld of Mankind itself into an abominable Daemon World.
* Now and then, he will have enough of sitting on The Golden Throne and transfer his soul into a Tarrasque in order to REALLY shake things up. A healthy body to inhabit allows him to perform feats greater than what he can in the mummified remnants of his original body. Said feats include freeing the Eldar goddess Isha and Eldrad Ulthran from the clutches of Nurgle and Slaanesh respectively, rescuing his son Jaghatai Khan from a chronovortex, curb-stomping the armies of Chaos, etc. Slaanesh and Khorne are fuming in rage for this, Tzeentch offered no comment, and Nurgle ''was'' mad, but surprisingly got over it quickly.
* Now and then he gives Asura questioning looks. Some speculate that this is because he thinks that Asura may be one of his erased Primarchs, which would explain how he managed to create [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Angry_Marines The Angry Marines.]] Only the most pissed off being in the universe would suffice for such a Chapter.
** On a similar note, he gains a sad but proud look whenever he sees Gimli. This may be because of the grievous losses and near extinction the [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Squats Squats]] suffered through in their continued existence in the galaxy. He is also pissed off at the massive amount of stupidity that ensued when the Imperium realized the Squats [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/File:The_results.jpg survived]]. Seeing the Adeptus Mechanicus, the Inquisition, and the Administratum argue about who to blame for losing the Squats really didn't make him happy.
* Though he is fully capable of interacting with the other gods in the immortal planes, he is unable to do much in the mortal realms, due to his avatar still being a dying corpse on the Golden Throne. Nobody wants to unplug it, uncertain of what will happen if they do.
** However, he did later get a [[WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice Text-To-Speech Device]] installed into the Golden Throne. He has become a lot more chatty since then.
-->''[[AC:ABOUT FUCKING TIME! I HAVE SO MANY THINGS TO COMPLAIN ABOUT.]]''
* Despite the bitter and caustic manner he voices himself, the God Emperor is genuinely sorrowful at what has become of his Imperium; his intended paradise of reason and science has been twisted into a despotic and bureaucratic mess, but with the installation of the Text to Speech device, he has begun restoring the Imperium to what it was meant to be.
* He's not too happy about Kars [[http://youtu.be/R9w_uoUHgiE?t=1m15s convincing The Adeptus Custodes to dress up like the Pillar Men]] in order to show him tribute.
* Upon learning that the traitor Primarch [[TheUnfavourite Magnus]] had ascended to the Pantheon he ordered Marneus Calgar and the Ultramarines to capture and bring him before the Golden Throne for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cxfPPvX4Bg&t=2m58s judgement]].
** [[spoiler:A binary encoded message from the Captain-General of the Adeptus Custodes has revealed that Calgar has somehow succeeded in his mission and is now returning with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgmPFEu5_ck&t=0m11s Magnus]]]]. However, the Emperor's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjBmT8y9PAU response]] to this development is not what anyone would have expected…
** [[spoiler: After a long heart to heart and revelation of previously unknown secrets the Emperor and Magnus have began overcoming their mutual issues with each other. To prove his goodwill, the Emperor overpowered the Chaos God Tzeentch to restore]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bM8YGsAmeqE&t=5m33s Magnus's soul]]. Afterwards, the Emperor revealed that he intended to recover the Primarchs once more and fulfill Mankind's birthright as the masters of the Galaxy.
** To that intent he has since ordered the Ultramarines to [[http://youtu.be/bM8YGsAmeqE?t=19m48s discreetly recover]] [[spoiler:Vulkan's artifacts for the Salamanders to find and bring him along]]. Apparently, he thinks only they can get the job done.
-->'''MY REASON SAYS "FUCK NO, GET RID OF THAT BLUE BLOB OF NAMBY-PAMBY FECAL MATTER." BUT MY INTUITION SAYS "SEND THEM TO DO SHIT AND STUFF WILL GO FORWARD." I WILL GO WITH THE LATTER BECAUSE I HAVE, LIKE, PROPHETIC POWERS AND STUFF.'''
* There are not many things that can bring a smile to his face. But one of those things that can are a [[http://youtu.be/Z_2nM1GEllg?t=1m46s Centurion from The Imperial Fists]]. [[spoiler:[[https://youtu.be/M56aycpd9kA?t=16m37s Who, as it turned out to even the Emperor's amazement, is his supposedly-dead son, Rogal Dorn of the Imperial Fists]]]].
* He also appears to have a very weird father-son relationship with the Captain-General of the Adeptus Custodes, calling him son and getting called Dad in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgmPFEu5_ck&t=0m11s return]].
* His alliance with Madoka Kaname is because she represents the hope humanity both needs and deserves. When he heard that [[spoiler: YHVH was planning to kill her, he became one of the masterminds of ''Fanfic/ThePantheonicRebellion''. He has since ordered three entire chapters of the Adeptus Astartes (Space Wolves, Salamanders, and Blood Ravens), three regiments of the Imperial Guard (Cadian 8th, Tannith 1st and Only, and Valhallen), 9 Bane Blades, 4 War Hound Titans, 2 Warlord Titans, and 1 Emperor Titan to Madoka's defense.]]
* The Emperor abhors both YHVH and Lucifer, seeing the two of them as abominations that feed on human emotions and only cause suffering much like the Chaos Gods. [[spoiler: YHVH's order to have Madoka killed]] only intensified that disgust but he remembers that it was Lucifer who put all these events into motion.
* The God Emperor has gained an alliance with another founder of the Magical Girl Sisterhood, Usagi "Serena" Tsukino, as well as another of the Sailor Senshi, Hotaru Tomoe, by the existence of an alternate universe wherein [[FanFic/LovehammerInc the Senshi were resurrected as the Emperor's daughters]].
* Homura Akemi reminds the God Emperor too much of his fallen son, Horus. Both so filled with passion and drive, only to be twisted and broken. With the existence of a universe where [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7642230/1/Puella-Stellae-Madoka-Magica Homura became the temporary host to the Emperor's soul while he acted as a replacement father to her]], creating a bond between them to the extent that she called him [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7642230/5/Puella-Stellae-Madoka-Magica dad]], the Emperor has decided to try and convince her to abandon Lucifer.
** The Gods of Chaos fear the possibility of this alliance occurring elsewhere in the Multiverse and within the Pantheon. Such an alliance would likely result in their destruction and as such they act with all their powers to prevent this from happening.
* Has begun having [[https://youtu.be/FyeoBm5QFnA?t=8m28s humanity's history from before the Age of Strife]] written down and sent throughout the House of Knowledge for mass copying and distribution, angry at the fact that most of it is currently censored for some reason.
* The God Emperor is furious and greatly disappointed at the result of the [[http://warhammerfb.wikia.com/wiki/The_End_Times End]] [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/The_End_Times Times]]. To see a world that has withstood multiple Chaos incursions [[spoiler: destroyed because of idiocy and treachery]] and the lives of billions of human lives lost as a result, has greatly infuriated Him.
** The Lord of Mankind has begun to consolidate His forces and made motions to ascend the remaining loyalist Primarchs and other champions of Mankind. His servants have shown an increased preparation for conflict and the other Gods fear the potential beginnings of the Second War in Heaven.
* After learning the end results of the End Times, the God Emperor has ordered His servants to apprehend the necromancer Nagash and bring the lich to justice, for both his crimes against Humanity and his actions during the End Times.
** He also gave hints that He seeks the ascension of the Warrior-God Sigmar Heldenhammer. A legendary Champion of Mankind that defeated the first Everchosen of the Chaos Gods and banished Nagash for more than two thousand years, Sigmar's arrival would be welcome sight within the Pantheon for the God Emperor.
* Upon being asked his opinion of both ''The Great Upheaval'' and ''The Pantheonic Rebellion'', The Emperor's response was rather simple.
--> '''''"IT'S LIKE SOME COMPLETE [[{{Jerkass}} ASSWIPES]] SUDDENLY INVADED AN EXCLUSIVE GIRL'S CLUB, DEMOLISHED ALL THEIR BELONGINGS, AND [[KillEmAll SUBJECTED ALL MEMBERS TO SUMMARY EXECUTIONS AND/OR HUMILIATION]]. [[HereWeGoAgain AND THEN ANOTHER COMPLETELY UNRELATED GROUP CAME ALONG]] AND [[HumiliationConga DID THE EXACT SAME THING ALL OVER AGAIN]]."'''''
* As one of the foremost Champions and God of Humanity, the Emperor was one of the first deities to help the Master Chief fight the Flood. During the conflict, He, the Master Chief, Madoka Kaname and (much to his great reluctance) Lucifer combined powers to banish the Primordial and ensure its imprisonment outside the Pantheon. He now stands alongside the Spartan as the first line of defense against the Parasite should it ever escape from its prison.
** After the conflict, the God Emperor made his made his thoughts on the Precursor very clear:
--> '''''"THESE TENTACLE-FETISH ASSHOLES ARE NOTHING IF NOT THE ABOMINABLE EMBODIMENT OF THE [[AbusivePrecursors COMPLETE AND TOTAL ASSHOLERY THAT AN ANCIENT SPECIES CAN LAY CLAIM TO]]. THE ONE-TIME ULTIMATE RULERS OF REALITY AND EVOLUTION, THEY WERE [[NeglectfulPrecursors THE SHITTY, NEGLECTFUL GRANDPARENTS OF ALL THAT IS LIFE]]. EVERY LIVING AND NON-LIVING BEING IN EXISTENCE SHOULD LET OUT A SIGH OF RELIEF THAT [[PayEvilUntoEvil THESE ASSHOLES WERE HUNTED DOWN AND KILLED BY THEIR MUCH-ABUSED CREATIONS]]."'''''
** The danger of a Flood invasion of the Pantheon is great enough that he is even willing to [[EnemyMine join forces]] with the Chaos Gods to defeat it, as both sides agree that the Flood is a far greater threat than they are to each other.
* The Emperor has low views of [[TheSocialDarwinist Social Darwinism]], regarding it as a badly disguised Realpolitik underneath false science that has often been used as poor justification for [[ANaziByAnyOtherName cruel and inhumane actions]]. He is often found calling those who hold to this philosophy:
--> '''''"[[{{Jerkass}} BRUTISH]] [[WhatAnIdiot ASSCRACKS]] WITH SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST MINDSET, THAT THINK ALL "WEAKNESSES" WITHIN THE HUMAN SPECIES NEEDS TO BE DESTROYED. WHICH WOULD BE ALL FINE AND DANDY IF THAT'S WHAT THESE FUCKERS WERE REALLY DOING, BUT USUALLY THEY'RE TOO BUSY BEING PRETENTIOUS PRICKS AND TRYING TO TEAR DOWN EVERYONE WHO'S WEAKER THAN THEM, SO THEY'RE [[{{Hypocrite}} ACTUALLY ACCOMPLISHING THE OPPOSITE OF]] [[{{Irony}} WHAT THEY CLAIM TO STAND FOR]]."'''''
** He has come to conflict with En Sabah Nur and Charles zi Britannia over their philosophies and disregard for the lives and well-being of Humans.
* Odin and the God Emperor of Mankind met one another after several correspondence through their sons. The two came to instantly respect one another from their mutual struggle against great enemies of their peoples. The determination to overcome seemingly impossible odds and unbeatable foes in order to preserve one's people was resound in both figures. Odin's ages old struggle against Ragnarok and strings of fate was well known to the Emperor while the King of Asgard learned about the Master of Mankind's millennia of warfare against the foul Gods of Chaos. The two forged a powerful alliance with one another. Much to their mutual amusement, they both possessed the title of Allfather.
* [[WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice May or may have not]] been [[Pantheon/{{Profession}} a certain Cimmerian]] in a past life.
* Despite maintaining a presence within the Pantheon, being the God of Humanity and worshiped as a God Emperor by his many worshipers, the Emperor still holds many reservations about the title of God. Many would go as far as to say that referring to Him as a God is actually demeaning, since as a Human being, He is so much more. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pq-6aj9sNvo&t=3m17s The Emperor prefers to be called The Man Emperor of Mankind]].
* As a proud proponent of [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Humanity_Fuck_Yeah HUMANITY FUCK YEAH]], the Emperor wishes that Humanity would stop doing stupid shit such as worshiping obviously [[GodOfEvil evil and malevolent entities]] (especially if they do so for the petty promises of power and fame), get their act together and finally [[https://youtu.be/97CmxA1FA5s?t=14m32s achieve their birthright]].
** For this reason, Rem sees the Emperor as one of the few humans she can stand. He spends his time with her trying to see the potential humanity can achieve, but every time he gets close to convincing her, some human in the Pantheon does something stupid and evil, and they're back at step one.
** This is also the reason he first began to take a look at the Elric brothers' journey, as one of their first landmark achievements as State Alchemists was to expose a false religion based around a sun god designed to convince the townspeople to get themselves murdered in a coup. Everything he saw after that proved them to be great champions of humanity's potential, to the point they even managed [[spoiler:to impress [[Pantheon/SourcesOfInformation The Truth]], an entity whose entire design centered around punishing humans for thinking they could play God with transmutation knowledge]]. Needless to say, the Emperor approves.
** He's also offered his full support to Philemon and Igor for their service in guiding the Persona-using human youths of the Pantheon into fighting back divine entities to protect humanity. Their most recent Wild Cards, Yu Narukami and Ren Amamiya, are particularly impressive, as Yu is proof that humans can seek and handle the truth even when it's uncomfortable or inconvenient to do so, while Ren is proof that humans can reject mundane nihilism and strive to achieve more in their lives than serving prisoner to corrupt systems.
*** As Nyarlathotep and Yaldabaoth are both proponents of humanity's hopelessness who refuse to let up after being shown they're wrong, the Emperor considers them to be a danger akin to the Chaos Gods themselves. Once said Chaos Gods are finished being dealt with, they're next.
** With Android 17 [[spoiler:rising past his artificial programming from Dr. Gero's experiments to become the ultimate human, not only surviving near-elimination and self-destruction to win the Tournament of Power but also using his wish selflessly to restore the erased universes]], the Emperor approves of the MVP chants 17 has gotten since his return from [[spoiler:the planet-wide cruise he earned for himself and his family. The Emperor even had a trophy created to commemorate 17's victory and valor. The old doc can suck it]].
* Zamasu's plan to exterminate all mortals "for godly justice" makes the Emperor sick to his goddamn stomach. Aside from the fact that the brutal species he observed at two points a thousand years apart was closer to xeno than human, Zamasu refused to understand the concept of the Kais serving as guides to humanity when it was taught to him. While he applauds Gowasu for trying his best to get through to the prick, Zamasu was hell bent on judging and destroying those he could've instead facilitated towards greatness. For the Emperor, ThisIsUnforgivable.
** [[spoiler:He laughs at how blatantly the Tournament of Power proves not only just how dead wrong Zamasu was about how hopelessly destructive humans were, but also that Zen'o, the childish TopGod who eliminated Zamasu from his multiverse, knew he was wrong the entire time.]]
* Despises fellow "Emperor" Frieza for trying to destroy his Earth at least twice and callously destroying countless lives, including [[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF wasting one Earth city with a single beam as a way to say hello]]. Upon hearing that he's found the sudden interest of helping other despotic Social Darwinists achieve rule over their Earths, the Emperor of Mankind is not mincing words.
--> '''''"I WANT THAT MOTHERFUCKER ELIMINATED. AND I. WANT IT. NOW. OH, AND HIS FUCKING ONE-EYED BLONDE FRIEND CAN GET REKT TOO."'''''
* He has a fondness for Duel Monsters, though he was a little disappointed that he couldn't use broken cards in the Pantheon. To compensate, he's constructed a deck based around powerful LIGHT monsters.
** Despite their enmity, he hosts regular Duel Monster tournaments with Tzeentch.
* He hates when people mention that one time he was being choked to death by, of all things, an Ork. Odin sympathizes with him for this; he is still getting shit for having been enslaved by space ants once.
* Few alien species love humanity as much as the Doctor. So it is rather conflicting for him to side with its patron who thinks little of him or any other aliens. The God-Emperor hopes that the humans in that would will learn not to rely on the Time Lord's help all the damn time.
* Is not a big fan of Zen'o for being so childish with ultimate divine power. [[spoiler:That SecretTestOfCharacter with the Tournament of Power did impress him, though.]]
* He hates when people mention that one time he was being choked to death by, of all things, an Ork. Odin sympathizes with him for this; he is still getting shit for having been enslaved by space ants once.
* Also holds a spot in the [[Pantheon/PantheonLeaders Main House]].

* TeethClenchedTeamwork With: [[Pantheon/{{Monarchs}} Artoria Pendragon]]
* Enemies: [[Pantheon/MindGames Kotomine Kirei]], [[Pantheon/{{Villains}} Johan Liebert, Melkor, The Vandereich]], [[Pantheon/{{War}} The Millennium]], [[Pantheon/OutlooksOnLife Monsoon]], [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} Gilgamesh]], [[Pantheon/OtherRelatives The Huckbein Family]], [[Pantheon/ActsOfWar Sundowner]], [[Pantheon/{{Laughter}} The Joker]], [[Pantheon/VillainousAttitude Esdeath]]
* He's always known for his most surefire and pragmatic ways to solve problems and defeat evil. No matter how disgusting and dishonorable the method is, so long as it gets the job done. Opinions about him in the Pantheon are kind of...mixed.
* He finds his ascension rather ironic - having openly criticized the Throne of Heroes for taking glory in war, he now finds himself in a literal Pantheon of Heroes. He made it clear that he's not here for the glory, but only for the chance to do the right thing.
* He's somehow very fond of Homura Akemi for [[{{Expy}} some reason]]. He cannot figure out why. He's also close to Jack Bauer due to kind of similar method in dealing with what he considered evil, and he likes [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga4nNSqsYp0 one of his theme songs]] [[Creator/RikiyaKoyama for some reasons]]. For that friendship, Jack has shared some knowledge with Kiritsugu, in particular [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique his interrogation technique]].
** Likewise, he and Master Chief are on good terms, for [[Creator/RikiyaKoyama a similar reason as Jack Bauer]] as well as their agreement that WarIsHell. While the Chief would definitely like to see Kiritsugu use his methods against the Covenant, he's not so sure he could see him go against Insurrectionists.
* Usually visits the House of Travel to relax at Inns.
* As a man who has seen through the hells of war, he develops a good rap with Martin Walker, often sharing stories on how hellish war is and how people should avoid it at all cost. Walker is a bit stunned with Kiritsugu's extreme pragmatism, though, to the point of comparing him of his bloodthirsty part.
* He made sure that not even his son Shirou knew about his ascension. But the first thing he did when he ascended was to sneak to Shirou's House, and after seeing him doing well on his own and learning about what a hero truly meant... [[SoProudOfYou There's just a satisfied smile on Kiritsugu's face]].
** He also knows Archer's identity and always made sure that he gave him a sad, but understanding smile on him.
* Is considered the bane of MANY Gods and Goddesses in the House of Magic, even Homura. None dared tried to piss him off or get on his bad side. When asked why, most followers would reply with "Does the term [[MageKiller Magus Killer]] ring a bell to you?" Kroak does, however, approve of him and his philosophy.
** He's still considered a more respectable 'Magus Killer', when compared to some like [[Pantheon/{{Family}} the Huckebein family]]. Kiritsugu also has nothing but disgust for that family.
** Thanks to his skill as a 'Magus Killer', he was eventually befriended by Tavish [=DeGroot=] since the Demoman has a large amount of hate towards the [[{{Pantheon/Magic}} The House of Magic]], mostly the evil ones. Because of this, both of them do normal hunts for evil deities within the house. Ironically though, Kiritsugu didn't want to befriend him since he may get into Arturia's bad side. He still became friends nonetheless.
*** However, at one point, [[Pantheon/MagicMixed Gul'dan's]] ascension in the House caused both of them to hunt the Darkness Incarnate. The damage around the house was catastrophic, and even destroyed half of the house itself. This became the last straw for Arturia and decided to place the Demoman in her TeethClenchedTeamwork list, with him being the '''THE 2ND LAST RESORT''' she will work with. This got both of them disappointed but still tolerable to each other.
* Ever since hearing all about Kiritsugu and how he suffers so beautifully as he's forced to lose everything he loves due to his ideals from Kotomine, Melkor is deliberately going out of his way to torment him even further with his forces of the GUAE.
* His hairstyle has been compared to [[Pantheon/LoveOther Spike Spigel's]]. This has sparked no reaction from the Magus Killer so far. Some gods have actually thought of a line by the words of "See ya, Magus Killer"
* Sympathizes with Raiden after hearing about his past as a ChildSoldier, and having experienced what war can do to a person. Also sympathizes with Yuji Sakai after hearing that he is trying to end a war that has lasted for millennia and the war would eventually [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt end]] [[ApocalypseHow humanity]].
* Arturia will work with him '''as a last resort.''' Despite no longer caring about him forcing her to [[spoiler: destroy the grail]], she still harbors disgust over his dishonorable actions and lack of decency. For his part, Kiritsugu will always consider her someone who is too bound by a romanticized view of war and chivalry to amount to much good in the world. And he could say the same with Diarmuid Ua Duibhne (since he never got to say that to him when he was around). He considered the hatred he got from them to be a natural reaction, they're never going to get along like water and oil.
* Has been training for his inevitable rematch with Kirei Kotomine. The Grail War may be over, but the bad blood between the two men will never truly quiet.
** In addition, he has been looking for a way to destroy Araya's apartment complex. Araya has anticipated this, however, and has erected new barriers to counter the origin bullet.

* TeethclenchedTeamwork with: [[Pantheon/KillersAndAssassins Ezio Auditore]] (one-sided on his part... sort-of), [[Pantheon/AntiVillains Shay Patrick Cormac]] (again, one-sided for him... sorta)

* Scares: [[Pantheon/{{Memes}} JonTron]] (Sheele only)
* Opposes: [[Pantheon/NiceAndNasty Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa]]
* Ascended because Esdeath is in the Pantheon, and they feared that her presence would bring another tragedy like the ones they had to go through. What they didn't expect was all of them appearing in the Pantheon together [[spoiler: especially given how some very bad things happened to most of them]]. Still, it was a very joyous reunion for all of them. Now, the full force of Night Raid is in full gear.
* Their arrival did not go unnoticed by Esdeath herself, of course. Not soon after they arrived, she was the first one to appear before them. Before they could prepare for an impending fight, Esdeath quickly grabbed Tatsumi and kissed him full on the mouth, [[{{Troll}} fully aware that his fellow Night Raiders were watching]]. Mine was clearly ''[[ClingyJealousGirl not happy]]'' and nearly rushed over to to confront the general before being restrained by teammates, [[spoiler:[[DeathByAdaptation which is a good idea given what happened the last time she did it]].]] Tatsumi and Mine aside, the few of the other member's reactions to Esdeath are as follows:
** Najenda: Still disappointed in her.
** Susanoo: [[spoiler: Regrets falling to her and wants another go.]]
** Chelsea: Hates her [[spoiler: for desecrating her body.]]
* "Necessary evil" means exactly what it says; to commit evil deeds for the sake of good. They don't even consider themselves as heroes despite being clean-cut good guys. Because of that, they put a notice on Bane, who considers himself as such [[spoiler: though destroying Gotham just to get revenge on Batman makes him anything but]].
* As the Pantheon is nowhere near as corrupt as the Empire they originated from, it gives Night Raid some time to wind down and relax somewhat. They still deal with the occasional CompleteMonster, but not as much as they used to.
** In an effort to conform to the LighterAndSofter nature of the Pantheon, they [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNEePLbgCf8 have occasionally attempted to re-brand themselves as the]] ''[[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Mighty Morphin' Night Raid Rangers]]''.
* Evil gods from the House of Family stay ''far'' away from them, since they are willing to ([[EstablishingCharacterMoment and did]]) kill families who torment and torture others for shits and giggles.
* Since they ''are'' serial killers, the House of Justice would like nothing more than to bring them in to make them face their sins. [[Pantheon/MainHouse Cosmos]] is the only one keeping that from happening.
* There was a time that Chelsea felt that Bulat and Sheele were failures as assassins due to their companions, something that she believed assassins can't afford to have. After spending time with Tatsumi however, she felt herself growing attracted to him to the point that she finds herself moving to the risky front-lines to impress him. It was at that point that she relized that she no longer had the right to insult Bulat and Sheele anymore. [[spoiler: Her actions wound up killing her, but she doesn't regret what she did.]]
* Their relations with Ezio Auditore is a bit… strained to say the least. They at first seemed to interested in joining ranks with a legendary assassin, but Ezio made it clear that he's less than pleased with how they do things; that is, killing anyone who is '''remotely''' involved, while the Assassin Brotherhood tries to minimize the number of causalities as much as possible. Ditto with Shay Patrick Cormac, the infamous [[HeroKiller Assassin Hunter]], who [[WhatTheHellHero outright chastised them]] for their bloody rampages. However, after hearing just how [[CrapsackWorld terrible their world is]] [[KickTheDog and their marks are far worse than what the Assassin Brotherhood and the Templar Order deal with]], they (separately) let it slide, and they seem willing to work with Night Raid, although reluctantly. But given how much Ezio and Shay don't like each other, the group makes sure they aren't in the same House when negotiating with either.
** Unbeknownst to them, Shay plans to find a way to eliminate them (and Esdeath) one day, and when he does, he will do it ''alongside Ezio'', who in turn is actually open to the idea, though more on Esdeath than Night Raid.
* Maya Fallegeros seems interested in their abilities against Danger Beasts and hopes to recruit them in order to rebuild Night Hand. The group's unsure on whether or not to accept her invitation. However, it is through her that they met the siblings [[Pantheon/{{Combat}} Jago]] and [[Pantheon/OtherWeaponTropes Black Orchid]], giving the trio more allies against Ultratech.
* As they make a living hunting down bastards, they have become allies with Kenshiro, who pledges to aid them.
* Leone seems to get along with Yang [[{{Expy}} as they seem a lot alike]]. She's pretty solid with Blake too [[spoiler: and thinks she'd look cuter with her cat ears]].
* Oren Pierre Alfonzo is interested in seeing Bulat in action. To the surprise of no one, Bulat is interested in learning about Oren, but the pastry chef told him not to get any ideas, as he's attracted to only [[Pantheon/AntiVillains one man]]. Chelsea is also Oren's frequent visitor.
* It goes without saying that Tatsumi has a way with girls. Though he sometimes wishes he doesn't have such luck, and who could blame him after seeing ''Esdeath''? He often confines with Issei, who doesn't mind the attention, but can see where he's coming from. He also sported an OddFriendship with Esmeralda, who knows what it's like to gain attention from the wrong people.
* [[spoiler: The House of Prophecy claimed that Tatsumi and Mine's relationship will not end well. They declared that even if it's true, they will enjoy as much time they have together.]]
* Mine is pretty close to Ange as they both experienced the dark side of racism. She also admires how good she is with guns and explosives, having learned to use them in a short amount of time. She does wonder if Ange's AntiMagic can affect Imperial Arms, though. Ange also commented that she [[Creator/YukariTamura sounds a lot like]] [[Pantheon/{{Children}} Hilda]].
* Sheele scares the crap out of [=JonTron=] because of [[VideoGame/ClockTower someone else who uses big scissors to kill people]]. He tried to 'stop' her by throwing wet pieces of ham at her. Not only did it (obviously) not work, but Sheele made it worse by cluelessly eating the ham on her face. He immediately collapsed to the floor like a toppled statue, having suffered the equivalent of 10 heart attacks at once. To add insult to injury, there were two iPods placed on both sides of [=JonTron=]'s hospital bed with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TZieWmwKGM this song]] set on repeat and maximum volume. It caused him to immediately wake up from his coma, screaming at the top of his lungs. To the surprise of no one, the one behind all of it was [[Pantheon/{{Hatred}} Yuuki Terumi]].
* Not that Tatsumi was all that happy-go-lucky to begin with, but he wouldn't be quite the same after meeting Johan Liebert. Johan asked him if he ever regretted killing. Tatsumi stated that he never thought of it, only that he made his first kill after seeing his two childhood friends killed brutally. It's something that he didn't want to experience again. [[MindRape Johan took the moment to inform Tatsumi that]] [[spoiler:[[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom he has indirectly caused EVERY death of his fellow Night Raiders]]]]. Tatsumi immediately went into shock as Johan went through a list:
** [[spoiler:Sheele's death]] at the hands of [[spoiler: Seryu]] occurred because [[spoiler:Seryu]] began to actively hunt down Night Raid to avenge the death of [[spoiler:her mentor, Ogre]], who Tatsumi personally killed.
** [[spoiler: Bulat's]] concern for Tatsumi's safety during their fight with the [[spoiler: Three Beasts]] definitely proved to be a hindrance to him. In addition, had Tatsumi just held off [[spoiler:Nyau]] for just a few more seconds, [[spoiler:Bulat would have been able to kill Liver, and thereby preventing his own death]].
** [[spoiler: Chelsea's]] death at the hands of [[spoiler: Kurome]] was caused by [[spoiler:her out-of-character, brash decisions]]. [[spoiler: Chelsea]] admits to herself that her out-of-character actions were the [[LoveMakesYouDumb result of her feelings for Tatsumi]], as well as her desire to impress him.
** [[spoiler: Susanoo]] was killed by [[spoiler: Esdeath]] when she used her recently acquired Trump Card, which had the ability to freeze time. to defeat him. The primary purpose of the Trump Card was to prevent Tatsumi from escaping her again after his escape at Mt. Fake.
** [[spoiler: Lubbock's]] death at the hands of [[spoiler: Izou]] was the result of [[spoiler: him trying to escape capture.]] [[spoiler: Lubbock was only captured]] because Syura was able to identify Tatsumi. Syura even admitted that he was not entirely sure that [[spoiler: Lubbock]] was a member of Night Raid, and only [[spoiler: kidnapped him]] because he was with Tatsumi.
** [[spoiler:Mine ended up in a coma (or killed depending on the incarnation)]] because of her decision to save Tatsumi from his [[spoiler: execution at the hands of Esdeath.]] The icing on the cake was that [[spoiler:Esdeath had no intention of getting Tatsumi killed, and he would have survived his apparent "execution", whether or not Night Raid would have saved him.]]
*** As Tatsumi stood there [[HeroicBSOD devastated]], his team found him and Johon left before anything could be done about it. Tatsumi was so completely frozen in shock that it took several visits to Dr. Tenma to snap him out of it. [[spoiler: Sheele, Bulta, Chelsea, Susanoo, Lubbock, and Mine]] also told him not to beat himself up over what happened to them, because anything could have happened and they don't regret their actions. He eventually got back to normal, and unfortunately for Johan he has now been blacklisted by Night Raid.
* As he is responsible for almost every bad thing that has happened to Norma's, they have also placed a mark on Embryo. It would be, however, rather difficult.
* Ra's has spoken an interest in their abilities and views them as a rival organization. Talia and Lady Shiva also wishes to test their skills to see just how deadly they are.
* Mine really hates Masato Kusaka for attacking anything not human, particularly the Orphnochs such as [[spoiler:[[Pantheon/{{Tics}} Takumi Inui]]]], even if they have no ill intent. It reminds her of how her life was back before she joined Night Raid. Though she does find it amusing how Esdeath also hates his guts. If someone like [[{{Jerkass}} Esdeath]] thinks you're an [[EvenEvilHasStandards irredeemable jerk]], then there must really be something wrong with you.
* They absolutely despises Ryoma Sengoku and Tenjuro Banno due to their stint as {{Mad Scientist}}s which reminded them of their enemy Dr. Stylish. Not to mention that they also put them as part of their assassination list after they found out that Sengoku has Stylish as one of his followers and Banno's ambition of initiating another Global Freeze in the pantheon, which has made their point to put a stop on them.

* Sometimes, it does [[GoodFeelsGood feel good doing the right thing in and of itself.]] However, there are often ulterior motives. Sometimes, it's just to butter them up. Sometimes, the ulterior motive is evil or at least non-benevolent. But then there are people who seek to benefit others because it benefits them as well and as such, everyone wins. This is the sort of man Professor Horace Slughorn is and as such, he was invited to the Pantheon to represent this ideology.
** Specifically, Horace Slughorn often handpicks promising students to join his Slug Club, a social club where he uses his connections to invite colleagues and other important figures to help promote his students so they may be able to achieve their full potential and promising careers in their future, likely ahead of what they could've done on their own.
** And what does Slughorn ask in exchange for these generous benefits in helping to secure his students' successful futures? Not much surprisingly, preferring to use his new connections for comforts such as sports tickets, sweets (especially his favorite, crystallized pineapple) and opinions in the newspapers. Many are a little surprised by this though some note given how he was retired when first introduced, it was likely he wished to enjoy his golden years in peace and comfort. Though meeting Harry Potter and Albus' convincing got him back into teaching.
* In fact, Idubbbz opposes him, fearing that he would fund bad Kickstarter and Indiegogo projects, even though Horace completely agrees with Ian that most of said projects are useless in the long run. He has a careful eye for prospects, after all, and won't fund someone who doesn't catch his eye.
* Some of the kinds of wishes future Puella Magi make with Kyubey to get their powers happen to be out of EnlightenedSelfInterest. As such, Slughorn pities those who've made such wishes such as Sayaka and Kyoko[[note]]Mami's was justifiably selfish, Homura's was selfless (and self-destructive given what she's now become), and Madoka's was ''both'' ultimately selfless and ultimately selfish[[/note]], and despises Kyubey for his manipulations so that their benefits are never earned.
* There are those who think that while the Tau Empire employs EnlightenedSelfInterest, the [[UnreliableNarrator possibility that]] they [[BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood use mind-control devices to make sure their allies don't forget about the "benefits everyone" part]]. As such, Slughorn doesn't know what to think of them. Or of its only representative so far, Commander Farsight.
* Sometimes logic calls for helping others in exchange for tangible future benefits, which Spock respects and has thus forged an alliance with Slughorn. Batman also understands the pragmatic benefits of what Slughorn represents.
* Trunchbull reminds him too much of Umbridge and conversely commends Matilda for her actions and is considering helping her out, given her intellectual and telekinetic potential.
* Given the mistakes they've done, Slughorn has pity for Celestia Ralgris, Kyoichiro Kuroi, and Raiden.
* Like Piglet for being able to stand by his friends even when he's afraid and loathes Djibril for being a DirtyCoward.

* Conflicting Opinion: [[Pantheon/TimeManipulation Homura Akemi]]
* Klaus first ascended upon uniting a war-ridden Europa by crushing all opposition with an iron fist. Some say that was excessive, but with the rampant [[MadScientist Sparks]] with their crazy inventions, he was the nation's only hope at that time. In all fairness, he has his empire is not a Byzantine clusterfuck like most; the only demand he makes of the nations he conquers is "Don't Make Me Come Over There", Which covers only two things: starting wars, and possessing the LostTechnology left behind by [[BigBad The Other]]. Otherwise, his empire is mostly peaceful. [[spoiler:At least before his…removal, after which war has resumed in his empire]], showing that dictatorships, regardless of intent, only last as long as they have a strong leader to keep everyone in line.
* Upon ascension, the first thing Klaus did (after getting his empire set up) was finally get the time to look at the advances of science [[AlternateHistory humanity can make]] ''[[AlternateHistory without the need of Sparks]]'' (and was told that it was precisely the fact that they had no Sparks that these advances can be made in the first place). Without Sparks, theoretical study was developed, which eventually led to atomic energy, computers, and decent aircraft (like airplanes, helicopters, and up to spacecraft).
** Also, without Sparks running rampant, societal progress was able to advance (more than just getting past the role of women and racism), leading to things like democracy and a working-class consumer society. Due to his cynicism as a result of ruling, he has difficulty comprehending the former and altruistic actions in general.
* You won't find his temple on the ground like most. You'll have to look to the skies just above the House of Personality instead, because Castle Wulfenbach is a fleet of airships.
* Don't make him come over to the battlefield. If you do, you'll regret it. Unfortunately, given all the other powerful deities in the Pantheon, this threat is mostly hollow here, at least to the Greater Gods and stronger.
* Klaus's Spark manifests in his analytical prowess, like dismantling and improve the designs of other Sparks, "finding the right monster for the right job" (i.e. making good use out of [[HumansAreBastards horrific monsters]]), and figuring out secrets his people try to hide from him in an attempt to undermine him or break his rules.
* Has an ambiguous amount of respect for Steven Armstrong. Reasons for this are unknown.
* His respect for [[Pantheon/AntiHeroes Kiritsugu]], Raiden, and [[Pantheon/CharacterRoles Martin Walker]] is more certain, citing their mutual hatred of war as his reason. He agrees entirely.
** For Walker in particular, he also expresses pity for [[spoiler:the versions that didn't make it out of Dubai]].
* Used to respect Charles zi Britannia, but then he discovered [[spoiler:[[AssimilationPlot what he was really going for]]]]. The fact that Charles promotes war [[SocialDarwinist to create social progress]] also goes against what Klaus had to do (rule ruthlessly to ''stop'' and discourage war).
** As for [[Pantheon/ActsOfWar Lelouch's]] [[spoiler:final GenghisGambit]], he thinks the kid's too reckless and overly reliant on how people will behave in a future [[spoiler:without Lelouch]].
* Regarding Homura's actions to protect Madoka [[spoiler:by depowering her]], he believes the Puella Magi is being unreasonably selfish, even though it protected her from Kyubey's machinations (and he hates them just as much as anybody else). However, upon discovering that there may have been [[PoorCommunicationKills severe communication issues]] on top of Kyubey's manipulations behind her decision, he's at a loss on what he should think of her.
* Valvatorez hates warmongers, and sympathizes with Klaus on what he had to do to stop the war on his world.
* Because of the threat of "the Other", Klaus has been trying time and again to get the GUAG to surrender Agatha over to him due to the threat she can pose in the Pantheon. That said, with all the other threats that make her comparatively small beans, Agatha's presently a medium priority.
** However, if there's a way to remove "the Other" from Agatha without destroying her, he's willing to back any such plan. That said, he's still taking into account her family's past, so…
* Ever since [[spoiler:his meddling with time by sealing away Mechanicsburg in a temporal stasis field with himself inside it]], [[EvenEvilhasStandards something not even the Heterodynes of old were willing to (let anyone) do]], Klaus got [[spoiler:the Dahaka]]'s attention (and not the positive kind), [[spoiler:especially in revelation of [[ClockRoaches what's coming to his world]]]]. [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20180629#.WzieUzG-nIW And it's only recently that Agatha's come to realize the ramifications of his actions]].
* Has joined the GUAL after the Pantheonic Rebellion to prevent whatever chaos Lucifer and his minions are causing.
** The arrival of [[Pantheon/AntiVillains Eliphas the Radiant]] has made him question his loyalty to YHVH due to the large number of atrocities the latter has committed against His own followers. He is considering taking [[Pantheon/{{Justice}} Eiki Shiki]]'s side in the GUAL Reformation, realizing he might have to "come over there". He has thanked Eliphas for helping him see the truth.
* While not really allies with the GUAG, [[spoiler:after an attempt was made on [[Pantheon/LightAndBrightness Sora]]'s life by Lucifer, Klaus and his men were tasked in sending the Keyblade bearer and his friends to [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Alola]] to hide there for the time being. Thanks to him, they're back in their own world to get stronger and prepare for the clash with [[Pantheon/{{Villains}} Xehanort]].]]
* ''"I was away for a '''few years''' and I came back to a world in '''ruins.''' Death, destruction, chaos, the endless fighting--it was like the [[WhiteSheep Heterodyne Boys]] had never '''existed.''' Things were worse than ever. So I stopped it. And I did it '''my''' way this time. No more '''negotiating.''' No more '''promises.''' No more '''second chances.''' And I did it '''alone.''' Because I had to."''

* Raven Reyes, along with the rest of the crew aboard the Eligus IV, was brought to the Pantheon during the [[spoiler: [[Fanfic/RainbowRivalries Team Rainbow Rocket Crisis]]]], where she was awoken from her cryosleep by Ghetsis Harmonia, who forced her to not only reconfigure the DNA splicers to work on the Legendary Birds, but also [[spoiler: decipher the files needed to convert [[OlympusMons Lugia]] into its [[TheCorruption Shadowed form]]]]. She didn't have much choice in the matter; either she did what the Team Plasma Sage said or else the others on board would die. Luckily, when the Plasma's guard was down, Raven took the opportunity to briefly escape and send a DistressCall to the Pantheon. This allowed for several surviving deities to come up, defeat the Team Plasma grunts, capture Ghetsis, and secure Raven and the other passengers aboard the Eligus IV. She would later lend a hand in helping the resistance reach an [[AlternateDimension Ultra Universe]] and aid in [[spoiler: the defeat of Giovanni and Team Rainbow Rocket as a whole.]] For aiding in the victory against the criminal syndicate, Raven was given a temple and position as a Goddess in the Pantheon.
** When she was being shown around her Temple, which was a near perfect replica of her workshop back in Arkadia, Raven was given the biggest shock of her life. Standing by the desk side was a middle aged man, with brown eyes and frizzy black and grey hair adorning a neutral yet formal face. At first, Raven assumed that it was another hallucination, a leftover from the destroyed A.L.I.E. chip. That all changed when he came over and pulled her into a hug, speaking in a soft voice.
--> '''Sinclair''': "Hey, Spacewalker. What took you so long?"
** That was when Raven realized her mentor and ParentalSubstitute Jacapo Sinclair had been selected as her Herald, and after so many years apart, was reduced to tears and returned the hug in turn.
* Raven's new home gave her plenty of interesting neighbours to hang out with, with Luke Skywalker and Killua Zoldyck becoming her first allies in the Sub-House. Killua has questioned why Raven, as well as the rest of the 100, would have to kill so many people, to which Luke correctly noted that it was to save many other lives in the process. While Raven was saddened by the thought of what she and the others had to do, The last Jedi Knight reassured her that it was for the greater good. The Vulcan Spock, who was also in attendance, agreed with Luke's statement. After all, the needs of the many outweighed the needs of the few.
* Raven has found herself making friends with some of the Pantheon's mechanics and technical geniuses, many of them praising her own work as mechanic for the 100. Tony Stark and Reed Richards have had their gear fixed up by her and Bentley the Turtle and Otacon have approached Raven with an offer to join the White Hat Hackers. She has yet to confirm the offer but she has been considering it. But more often than not, Raven is seen working with both Sinclair and Alpha 5, with the little robot giving her special access to the Zords to work on and study their inner workings. It was like a dream come true for her and has been making modifications to them to help with against the Demonic Legion and SHOCKER's ever-growing arsenal of monsters.
* During her rescue, Raven was more than shocked to see the [[spoiler: former]] Commander of the 12 Clans, Lexa, alive and well. In fact, it was a total surprise due to not only Lexa being killed in their home world, but also [[spoiler: the Flame being passed on to Clarke's adoptive daughter Madi, making her the new Commander.]] Now while Raven has plenty of reasons to hate Lexa - with the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAL2NMjGfL8 execution of her first boyfriend Finn]] being high on that list - she only has to deal with her from time to time and even then she's on MUCH better terms with Clarke Griffin, even if they [[TeethClenchedTeamwork get on each other's nerves.]]
* The death of Finn, coupled with several other tragedies in her life, is the reason Raven stays away from the House of Pantheon/{{Love}}, as she doesn't want to be reminded of what she had lost. However, every now and again she'll meet up with Spike Spiegel and discuss their past relationships together, usually over drinks at the Stray Dog Bar. Spike is always welcomed company, and when they're together, the pair go on talking their many adventures, sharing a couple of laughs along the way. It was through Spike that Raven became friends with Radical Ed, whose technological expertise surprised even the Spacewalker in spite of her age. The pair have also been seen working with Ed's neighbour Winry Rockbell, often making comparisons between their work and helping one another improve upon their skills.
* Considering what Team Rainbow Rocket did to the Pantheon, her friends and to herself, Raven opposes the evil members of the organization for varying reasons; Giovanni for wanting to take over the world and the Multiverse, Lysandre for destroying his homeworld using the Ultimate Weapon, and Ghetsis... [[HateSink For simply existing and giving her hell.]] That said, she's cool with the leaders who have reformed such as Maxie, Archie and N. Cyrus is still on the fence, [[spoiler: as he did aid in corrupting Dialga and Palkia as part of the plan,]] but he's been true to his word about reforming himself.
* Having been [[spoiler: [[BrainwashedAndCrazy possessed by the A.I. program A.L.I.E]]]] and seeing what it has been capable of when multiple individuals are under [[spoiler: her control]], Raven is in extreme opposition to all forms of artificial intelligence in the Pantheon, even if they're good natured. She's wary around Lan Hikari and Mega Man.EXE, TRON and Kevin Flynn, with TRON especially seeing as he was corrupted before as Rinzler. But CLU and the Master Computer Program are even more dangerous, and when push comes to shove she will work with TRON to stop them, even if she doesn't like it.
** Though Clarke was [[spoiler: able to destroy A.L.I.E., [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_ECmTkoAPQ a small remnant remained.]]]] It gave Raven an increase to her already incredible intelligence but it threatened to kill her unless permanently removed, which she did... by drowning herself and remaining braindead for fifteen minutes. The House of Pantheon/HealthAndDiseases was fascinated by this, and wanted to bring Raven in to examine her brain more closely but to that, she gave a flip of the bird and went straight back to work.
* Having been through more than her [[DeathByAThousandCuts fair]] [[BrokenBird share]] [[ButtMonkey of]] [[{{Understatement}} torture]], Raven steers clear of the House of Pantheon/{{Slaughter}}, more specifically the Sub-House of Pantheon/TortureAndMutilation. That didn't stop her from doing research on the deities residing there and, as a result, it's made her completely stand against the likes of Ramsay Bolton, who is well known for his sheer brutality, and the Allied Mastercomputer, whose cruelty and sadism reminded Raven way too much of how A.L.I.E. not only [[TheCorruption possessed her]] but also for playing horrible mental games in a manner to gain control. Despite this, she gets along with Lewa, as the Toa of Air once was possessed in the past by the Bohrok swarm.
** It's because of her time being possessed that Raven opposed the two neighbouring Sub-Houses; Pantheon/MindControl and Pantheon/MindGames, much to the frustration of the good-aligned deities there. She still doesn't want to take her chances with them.
* Raven does not like to be [[DontYouDarePityMe helped when it comes to her crippled leg]]. she would rather take care of things herself. Still, she did get some sympathy from Tyrion Lannister, who is rather fond of bastards, cripples and broken things.
* Much like Lexa, Raven is absolutely terrified of Godzilla and the immense power he possesses. Avatar Korra has tried to reassure her that the King of Monsters won't unleash Primafiya upon the Pantheon, but the Spacewalker's worries haven't been eased whatsoever.
* Even though Raven was the only one granted with godhood, she has been looking for a way to ascend her friends so they can share the position with her. Progress has been slow, and with so many people to choose from she has to be careful.
* Not to be confused with the other "Ravens" in the Pantheon. This one is neither a [[Pantheon/BodyParts a cyborg]], [[Pantheon/{{Shapeshifters}} a mutant shapeshifter]], or [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} the daughter of a powerful demon bent on world domination.]] There's been rumours about a team forming with all the Raven's involved but only time will tell.
