Greater Gods

    Magolor 
Magolor, God of Forgiven Traitors
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ksa_magolor_artwork_3.png
  • Greater God (Overdeity as Magolor Soul; Lesser God after being de-powered and initially ending up in Another Dimension)
  • Symbol: Himself
  • Theme Music: Magolor, the Far-Flung Traveler normally, Magolor's Shoppe in his shop, Distant Traveler when racing, Welcome to Magoland! when running Merry Magoland, Judgement of the Malus Pumila in his more serious moments when exploring, and C-R-O-W-N-E-D when fighting
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good with Neutral tendencies; Originally Chaotic Evil while claiming to be Lawful Good

  • Domains: Betrayal, Forgiveness, Mischief
  • Allies: Kirby, King Dedede, Bandana Waddle Dee, Meta Knight (reluctant on MK’s end), Siegfried Schtauffen, Ghaleon, Skull Kid, Applejack, Homura Akemi
  • Enemies: Nightmare (Soul series), Ludwig von Tokkentakker, Majora, Dr. Cortex, Galeem and Dharkon
  • Wariness from: Coach Oleander
  • Fascinated with: Applin
  • Additional Relations: Marx
  • The Lor Starcutter has crashed into Dream Land, bringing with it the mysterious traveler Magolor who requests the help of Kirby and friends to repair it. After the Lor Starcutter is repaired and the team defeats Landia, a quartet of dragons wearing the Master Crown, Magolor betrays Kirby and the others, revealing his true intentions of taking over the universe with the Master Crown. Kirby and his friends defeat Magolor, which sends him into Another Dimension and loses all of his powers in the process. As Magolor regains his strength, he realizes how badly he messed up and learns just how dangerous the Master Crown truly is. After destroying the artifact he once sought and was corrupted by, Magolor escapes, finding a new purpose in becoming a merchant in the Dream Kingdom and renewing his friendship with Kirby.
  • Another ship arrived in the Pantheon one day, which was identified as the Lor Starcutter based on its appearance. Unlike its initial appearance in Dream Land, the ship landed safely, but the owner was nowhere to be found. Some time later, a shop had been discovered and there were plenty of customers with Gem Apples in their possession, leading people to discover that the Lor Starcutter’s owner Magolor had become part of the Pantheon, selling these Gem Apples at his shop. As an interdimensional traveler, Magolor learned about a strange world close to Dream Land and decided to visit what was known as the Pantheon, believing that Kirby and his friends would also be present, a belief that was proven right just as fast. Happy to see Kirby and the others again, combined with having just a bit of his mischievous side to have some fun, Magolor is looking forward to his time in the Pantheon and hoping to find more friends along the way.
  • It wasn’t much of a surprise that Kirby was happy to see Magolor again given the former’s friendly attitude and Magolor saying that his reformation is genuine. Bandana Waddle Dee and King Dedede were also fine with seeing him again and while Meta Knight understands some of the circumstances behind Magolor’s darker actions before the latter made amends, he still has some wariness about him. That Magolor’s mischief has annoyed some denizens in the Pantheon combined with how he betrayed them before the Master Crown made things worse for everyone involved added to Meta Knight’s concerns, but Magolor has assured him that he’s not going to turn his back on his friends like before. Adding to concerns others have about Magolor is that not only does he have more than a few similarities to Marx when it comes to pretending to be friends with Kirby only to betray them at the last moment, but that Magolor might be friends with that devious jester. The main thing that separates the two is that Magolor has reformed while Marx is still willing to act on his darker ambitions, but given how the two have hung out with each other regularly, it’s clear that they like each other’s mischievous company.
  • There were many dangerous artifacts that many sought for their own gain, but the story of Soul Edge and Siegfried Schtauffen was something that fascinated Magolor. Siegfried went through plenty of trauma, including accidentally murdering his own father, but it was getting possession of Soul Edge and transforming into the destructive Nightmare that was the catalyst for Siegfried going on a path of redemption in order to destroy Soul Edge. Soul Edge having a mind of its own and corrupting others to achieve its goals was very similar to the Master Crown and Magolor believed that if someone was vicious enough to successfully wield the two artifacts (which are already deadly on their own), then it could spell danger for the Pantheon. Such possibility, along with going down a similar redemption quest, was what motivated Magolor to work with Siegfried in taking down Soul Edge, with Siegfried seeing the Master Crown as very much alike to Soul Edge and making sure Nightmare wouldn’t get his hands on it.
  • Magolor couldn’t help but notice the similarities between himself and Skull Kid, a trickster who was corrupted by an artifact that they were interested in. While Skull Kid never had plans to take over the universe like Magolor originally planned, his pranks were twisted into acts of cruelty much like how the Master Crown twisted Magolor’s plans for domination into destruction. Link and Kirby put a stop to the corrupted forms of their friends-turned-foes, with Link destroying Majora and Magolor fighting the Master Crown after he was freed from its control. With Skull Kid being wanting to have a friend which he would get with Link after Skull Kid was freed from Majora’s control and Magolor extolling the values of friendship after reconciling with Kirby, Magolor saw Skull Kid as someone who he would get along easily with, especially given the ordeals they’d go through before finding a true friend in the end. Magolor’s friendship with Skull Kid also got him into conflict against Majora, who saw the destructive potential of the Master Crown as something that could work in its favor when it comes to annihilating everything in its way.
  • His initial betrayal of Kirby and the others made him a traitor in their first adventure together, but there were a whole variety of such in the Pantheon that Magolor was interested in, especially since some followed Magolor’s path in redeeming themselves and others remained evil after said adventure. Ghaleon’s redemption story of someone who was once a hero, then became a villain, and then pretended to remain a villain following his resurrection in order to help the heroes greatly fascinated Magolor, as doing something like this would allow him to trick baddies into helping him while still giving the heroes a fighting chance against them. Beyond such a long-term play being something that Magolor wants to do at some point, Ghaleon having plenty of time to think things over between his initial death as a villain and his resurrection into a hero who believed in the power of bonds while pretending to be a villain made Magolor want to hang out with Ghaleon. The former Magic Emperor found it just as interesting that Magolor had enough time to think about his actions after his defeat and that it would lead him to destroying the same deadly artifact he once wanted to use and rekindling his friendship with those he once betrayed.
  • It was one thing for someone who others haven’t met before to pretend to be a hero before revealing themselves as a villain, but it was another for a villain the hero has always known and fought against try and propose an alliance to defeat a worse threat, only for the arch-enemy to fight the hero once everything was done. Magolor was bemused by such figures and Dr. Cortex was someone who fit the description of a known villain who had to work with the heroes he regularly fights against before going against them. Cortex found himself working with his nemesis Crash Bandicoot on separate occasions to defeat a pair of interdimensional parrots that served as a common foe, as well as N. Tropy and his female counterpart when they threatened the timestream. Neither teamup ended well for Cortex, who is a largely bumbling villain despite moments of brilliance and Magolor had his share of enjoyment out of taunting Cortex over the latter’s mishaps regardless of whether Cortex was working with or against the bandicoot.
  • Kirby was quick to accept Magolor as a friend despite the latter’s past betrayal, but while some are open to the reformed Magolor, others are not as keen on trusting him. Coach Oleander was someone who was wary of Magolor given how the latter was forgiven easily despite his treachery, but Magolor finds the coach to be amusing more than anything given Oleander’s past actions. Oleander was a member of the heroic Psychonauts, but thanks to a dark past and worsening sanity, he betrayed them and sought to conquer the world with “Psychic Death Tanks”. The plan was foiled thanks to Raz and he was allowed back into the Psychonauts, though Oleander was someone who is critical of villains being easily forgiven, with Magolor being one such figure who Oleander had issues with. Magolor didn’t pay much attention to the coach, but would occasionally tease him with words about world conquest just to get a reaction out of Oleander, befitting a light trickster like Magolor.
  • Gem Apples are the primary item Magolor sells at his shop, function as a type of currency and can be obtained through various means such as growing them on a Gem Apple Tree, though Magolor doesn’t allow customers to exchange Gem Apples for more Gem Apples in his shop. These specific apples intrigued many denizens of the Pantheon, with apple farmer Applejack taking an interest in them to see what makes them stand out compared to other apples. At his shop, she learned from Magolor about the Gem Apples and how he became associated with them, with her being more than infuriated upon learning how the Master Crown corrupted the Gem Apple Seed Magolor was building to take on the form of a murderous apple tree. Magolor dodged the question on what happened to that Gem Apple Seed after the Master Crown was destroyed, but since Applejack was an apple aficionado, he was more than willing to give her a pack of Gem Apples to try out following appropriate payment. From what others have told her about Gem Apples based on their experiences, Applejack believed that these unique apples were a good way to expand her apple farm given the many potential uses they have compared to a regular apple. Speaking of apples, Magolor was fascinated with Applin, a Pokemon a worm that lives in an apple that can evolve into a stronger Pokemon depending on the apple it’s given and even though there’s no effect to an Applin being given a Gem Apple, Magolor still likes to imagine the possibilities of what a gem-themed evolution of said Pokemon can offer, regardless of said Pokemon avoiding Kirby as much as possible.
  • Magolor has had a fondness for amusement parks and has always wanted to make one, with Merry Magoland fulfilling such a dream. The park functions as more of a series of contests for visitors to take part of, but it hasn’t stopped Magolor from learning about other figures who are involved with amusement parks, whether for good intentions or ill will. Ludwig von Tokkentakker was one such amusement park runner who was openly vile and willing to kill anyone that enters his park Carnevil. Magolor made it clear that, for all of his willingness to act cheeky in front of his friends, Merry Magoland functions nothing like Carnevil and that the attractions/games he runs are mostly harmless. There were just as many amusement parks that were run by well-meaning people that Magolor saw, but some of them such as Jurassic Park and its successor Jurassic World ended up being failures in deadly ways despite the potentially cool concepts the parks had. As much as Magolor is interested in expanding the park to include more attractions, he’s looking at what made some of the various theme parks across the Pantheon failures and is hoping not to repeat those kinds of mistakes.
  • I will show you the power of best friends!

Lesser Gods

    Ashi 
Ashi, Goddess of Talking Down the Suicidal
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/a1ef3820_2f71_4872_a748_b2d7b83c57a8.png
  • Lesser Goddess, Intermediate Goddess when using her Aku-given powers
  • Symbol: Ladybug
  • Theme Song: "Everybody Loves Somebody" by Dean Martin The Couple Song she shares with Jack.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, formerly Lawful Evil

  • Domains: Friendship, Hope, Changed Ways, Love, Strength
  • Allies: Samurai Jack (her husband), Ryuko Matoi, Laura Kinney, Satsuki Kiryuin, Iroh, Po, Nia, Simon, Clark Kent/Superman, Saitama, Zuko
  • Respected By: Mike Schmidt
  • Odd Friendship: Sanji, Rarity, Six
  • Enemies: Aku, Springtrap, Ragyo Kiryuin, Monika, any Abusive Parents or "employers" of Child Soldiers
  • Pities: N, The Nohr Royal Siblings
  • Meet Ashi, a young woman who fully appreciates what it means to be good as opposed to evil, due to how lucky she was to be able to figure it out after the reality had been hidden from her her whole life. Born into a cult known as The Daughters of Aku, Ashi was part of a set of seven sisters, all trained hellishly and raised to become devoted assassins for the enforcement of the reign of her world's overlord, Aku. The primary target of the Daughters' mission? Samurai Jack. But of course, things aren't always that easy.
    • Of all the Daughters of Aku trained to kill Jack, she was the one who seemed to take it most personally, to the point that she became the only Daughter whose name is known to the general public. She's even been known to go on loud proselytizing rants praising the "greatness" and "kindness" and "understanding" of her master. However, during one of her attempts to fulfill her training and kill Jack, Ashi ended up captured by the Foolish Samurai Warrior instead, giving her a front row seat to watch Jack and see all the good he was doing for others. This reawakened the sense of wonder from her childhood that her training and brainwashing had all but buried, causing her to question and ultimately change her ideals once Jack finally showed her the truth, that Aku had not created the world and was in fact rotting it with his evil.
    • Shortly after they got separated and she tried to find Jack, this time to help him if he was in trouble, she learned from others of Jack's noble tales, including a group of children that he'd saved. Eventually she found Jack, who was being haunted with guilt due to the apparent failure to save said children, courtesy of a ghostly samurai entity called The Omen which sought to trigger him into committing seppuku. While talking him down from seppuku, she corrected the truth about the children, restoring Jack's resolve and allowing him to cut down the embodiment of death with the very sword the entity wanted him to impale himself with. This highly unexpected act was the total opposite of her original life goal.
    • When she confronted her mother again, she had realized she and her sisters were trained for a mission that would only get them killed. This, and protecting Jack at the time, finally gave her the courage to stand up to her. Continuing to travel with Jack, she accompanied him to fight Aku once again...only for all parties to discover through Aku's scent of her presence that for herself and her sisters, the title "Daughters of Aku" was in fact literal through a cupful of his essence which her mother had drank and got her pregnant with them. This meant that Aku was able to control her as his puppet...though she broke free due to pure willpower and love. What it really meant was that she was able to use Aku's powers...including his time travel, which they used to go back to the past where Aku had first sent Jack from, allowing Jack to kill Aku. And that meant that Aku did not live to see the events that led to Ashi's existence transpire...and thus, shortly after marrying Jack in his time, Ashi faded into nothing. Until, of course...
  • A pocket of time was detected in an alternate reality wherein Aku's attempt to grab Jack and Ashi to stop their time travel was just a hair faster as he inserted part of his fist into the timestream. While this lead to Jack having to retread a lot of places, times, and battles he'd already seen to in order to reunite with Ashi, this of course meant she could still exist in that world as the version of Aku that fathered her was still scattered through all of time. Jack had to leave and go back to the Pantheon, but now knew where to find her, and a case was made that she had earned her title as a member of the Pantheon based on when she rescued Jack from being goaded into suicide. Witnesses state when she first ascended, Jack had jumped over the crowd to reach her first. He hugged her for several minutes causing surprise to those that knew the stoic samurai.
  • She soon got to know Jack's allies in the Pantheon. Po and Iroh grew on her the most; Po for being so cheerful and trying to brighten her day. Iroh became like the parent she wished she had, especially since his voice carried similar bases and inflections as her father but was actually a good person. Iroh has also introduced her to his nephew, Zuko, who had also a similar change of heart. They sit down for tea every now and then to talk since they have such a mutual understanding of each other. Whether Zuko actually drinks his tea is a different matter all together.
  • After learning about Jin Kazama and his very domain, she has started to work on her martial arts skills so she can aid him if there is call for it.
  • Immediately connected with Nia Teppelin after learning their similar fates. Nia has introduced her to Simon the Digger and Nia has met Jack. The two men, however, have not met each other yet.
  • Once she heard the strangely similar and disturbing origins of Ryuko Matoi, Ashi went out of her way to met her at the House of Costumes. Hearing it right from Ryuko seemed to make it worse. From her mother using her as experiment, having said parent brainwash her into attacking her friends, to her then killing herself to still try to win. Ashi needed to be restrained before Ryuko could finish. The only upside to her tale was that her sister, Satsuki Kiryuin, was spared from the darkness. Ryuko found a kindred spirit in her after watching her get just as hot-tempered as she does and hearing Ashi's own background. Though she has amassed a good group of allies; people commonly say if she's not with Jack then check with Ryuko. In fact, after finding out Ragyo Kiryuin was one of the heads of the House of Betrayal, Ashi has been keeping a stronger watch over Zuko as well as training more with Ryuko.
    • She and Ryuko were surprised when X-23 herself, Laura Kinney came to them, seeking someone else who had been born to be a weapon to lay down her burdens with. Ashi gladly accepted her with a hug and Ryuko jokingly laughed that they were starting a collection. She was met with death glares from both women in response. The three girls get along well now, each having a shoulder to lean on when their past memories start to get the better of them.
  • Will take on anyone that has put any of her new friends in the Pantheon into a deep bout of depression. After seeing how far down it took Jack, she is not even risking it. Much to her glee, she found some fellow heroes that have saved people from taking their own lives, stating that she would not mind starting a group against the more manipulative members of the Pantheon that would put people in such a state. She has tried to contact Tim Drake and Monkey D. Luffy about it. Saitama is not one for groups, but he said that if something happened during his lunch break to bring them to whatever rooftop he was eating at.
  • Ashi would meet Kovu, who had the exact same life she had. They both were raised by an evil cult that worshipped the Big Bad. The leader of the evil cult was their mother and raised their own children to follow in their god's footsteps in trying to kill the Big Good who would destroy their master. For years they trained for the day to eliminate The Hero until they found out everything in their life was a big lie, deceived by the evil that raised them to think they were the good ones. Finally, all they ever wanted now was to be with the ones who truly showed them the love they needed; Jack and Kiara respectively. Ashi and Kovu hugged each other.
  • She is not a big fan of her stronger powers, considering what happened when she got those powers. She has even been avoiding wearing black clothing. Though she can no longer be forced to use them against her will, she will only use them if she has no other choice. Jack has given her his complete sympathy on this front, having to watch as she went through this torment first hand. Also, the last time he wore black she disappeared in his arms.
  • Tagged along with Jack to the House of Craft when he had some gi that needed patched up. This was when she met Rarity. She took one look at her current outfit and immediately brought out all the latest fashion clothes she had. Ashi was overwhelmed. Jack spent the rest of the shopping trip hiding his face behind his hat.
  • Gained immediate hatred toward Springtrap after learning of the murdered children and what he did to them afterward. She has volunteered for guard duty over him. Mike Schmidt, however, didn't feel ok with someone so new to the Pantheon being left alone with him. He did admire her bravery, being one of the very few that actually asked for the job. She later asked Jack if he could use his sword to defeat Springtrap. Though he wished he could let them, Mike knew whatever was inside it would only become worse if unleashed.
  • Telling the story of when she and Jack fought a shape shifting alien in a crashed space ship couldn't help but gain the attention of Ellen Ripley. After hearing her stories in turn, Ashi became very grateful there had been only one.
  • Likes to spend time in the House of Nature. She will wander around just admiring all the beautiful trees and flowers. Jack will sometimes pack a small lunch which they eat together while sitting under a cherry blossom tree.
  • Ashi and Sanji know they share a common trauma in their early childhood and agreed to help the other against their various enemies within the Pantheon. The odd thing is that Sanji has kept his distance and has not hit on her once. It has boiled down to three theories.
    1. He actually respects the fact she is already in a relationship and will not intervene.
    2. He's worried about what she can do to him.
    3. He's worried about what Jack would do to him. The last two theories were suggested by Zoro.
    • Eventually Sanji invited her to eat one of his fine meals with him and the Straw Hats. But he didn't invite just Ashi alone, he invited both her and Jack. During said meal, his honest chivalry became part of the conversation, to which his answer confirmed the first of the three above theories. Then Zoro challenged Jack to a sword fight, which took place in the House of Combat. While cringing at the fight itself happening, she was proud of Jack both for winning and for stopping the fight before it got too bad.
  • Is still trying to get over the fact that so many people in the Pantheon sound like her.
  • She wants to help Six given what the young girl has been through. The problem lies with Six's powers and the things she did in The Maw. It reminds her too much of her own nightmare. It had been the first time she had been nervous around anyone in the Pantheon. Jack and Toriel come along when the girls talk to help keep things at ease.
  • She attacked Monika on sight, knowing what she had done to her other club members. Other Pantheon members had to drag her away due to their fear of Monika.

    Asuka (Senran Kagura
Asuka, Goddess of Bonds Through Combat (The Wakizashi-Wielding Whisperer of Defeat, Jugs, Tits-for-Brains)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/asuka_sk.png
Ultimate Asuka 
  • Lesser Goddess (Intermediate Goddess as Ultimate Asuka)
  • Symbol: A frog on top of two crossed wakizashi.
  • Theme Music: In The Name of Justice, In My Grandpa's Name, Successor of Hanzo, Duty of Good, Grandma's True Motive. What a Sword and Shield Strive For as Ultimate Asuka
  • Alignment: Lawful Good, with Neutral Good leaning
  • Portfolio: Friendship Through Combat, Tomboyish Ponytail, Dual Wielding, Summoning a Giant Frog, Earth-elemental, For Great Justice, Scarf of Asskicking, Not Afraid to Die, Hot-Blooded, Being The Sword and The Shield, Shinobi
  • Domains: Shinobi, Hair, Frogs, Earth, Friendship
  • Allies:
  • Friendly Rivalry with: Homura, Miyabi, Yumi
  • Former Enemies: The members of Crimson Squad and students of Hebijo and Gessen Academy
  • Opposes: Raynare, Orochi, Momoka Sagara
  • A Hot-Blooded shinobi from the Hanzou Academy, Asuka is willing and ready to discard her normal life and even her entire life to accomplish her mission. Originally the Goddess of Tomboyish Ponytails, once the spot of Defeat Means Friendship was opened up, she sought to earn that spot. And for good reason; she outright believes that people can understand eachother through fighting. Just ask Homura, who at first saw as a novice shinobi, and later became her greatest rival and strongest friend through repeated battles. Or Yumi, who eventually became friends with Asuka, would she either win or lose against her.
    • Not only that, but Asuka is a person who would become friends with anyone as long as they want to be. And to her, true power comes to being the sword and the shield; the will to protect those who you hold the dearest. And she wishes to protect everyone for her family legacy's sake, even in the shadows.
    • Due of this mentality, she has mad allies with other deities who have bonded through combat. Though whenever or not they actually fought to earn it is another question.
  • Has made a patch with Greninja to be her summon animal if the situation requires. Though some gods from the Pokémon universe wonder if she would be better off with Seismitoad due of her element.
  • Is in good terms with Kasumi and trains with her when she has the chance. She has also lend her clothes for Kasumi to wear, though with a warning that they aren't made out of best material when it comes to combat.
  • Has the most hatred forwards Orochi than the other Hanzou students, especially since she was the one who had to took the incarnation of it in her own universe down. As you can guess, she was not happy at all when her own world's Orochi pop up in the Pantheon
  • Sometimes confused with the other Asuka(s). Asuka also doesn't have a surname she wants to give out due of her being a shinobi, making things harder to really differentiate the two. They both even know a person named Katsuragi.
    • And then there was this problem of her sounding like Menoly. Made even more ridiculous when Neptune said that she sounds like Marvy... a.k.a. the personification of the company who created her. Got more confusing then Marvy herself ascended.
    • Her attempts at speaking English almost landed her a one-way beating from Issei Hyodo, due of her voice sounding like his ex-girlfriend, Raynare, who killed him in his first date. Fortunately, Asuka dodged Issei's intial attack on her and was able to unintentionally cool him down with her figure to solve the misunderstanding. He now gets along well with her, as with the rest of the Hanzou Academy students.
    • And on that note, she had an encounter with Issei's ex herself and was quick to see why Issei was so pissed off because of her smug attitude. Just as Raynare was about to skewer her with a lance of light, Homura came running in and chased the Fallen Angel away. Homura has since vowed to utterly kill Raynare, not only because she almost defeated Asuka but also because she reminds Homura of the one person who doomed her from becoming a Good Shinobi in the first place.
  • She was understandably cheerful that Homura, her rival and one of her closest friends, managed to ascend. She tried to throw a small party for her, but she refused.
    • She was also happy to see the students of other school ascend.
  • Another enemy she made was Momoka Sagara: at the request of Mamori Tokonome she attempted to reach out to Momoka through a battle with her. Despite losing to Asuka, Momoka just laughed in her face about her naivete: to think that fighting could end in the two understanding each other! The point of fighting is to kill your opponent, and anyone who hesitates in that regard suffers: she proceeded to drive the point home with a knife in Asuka's gut and made a quick escape, promising Asuka that if she ever saw her again, she'd rip her Life off and shove them up her Hometown. Asuka made a full recovery and is planning to try again, though she harbors a flicker of doubt that there's much humanity left in Momoka to connect to. That, to her, is probably the worst part.
    • Needless to say, this made Momoka a few enemies, particularly Katsuragi and Homura: the latter because Momoka nearly killed Asuka, and the former because, well, you don't defile a chest as awesome as Asuka's. You don't even threaten to.

    Bear Hugger 
Bear Hugger, God of Bear Hugs (Canadian Bear Hugger, Champion of Canada)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bear_hugger.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A giant bottle of Maple Syrup
  • Theme Song: Punch Out theme (Bear Hugger ver.)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Trained by a Bear, Big Eater, Lovable Giant Guy, Canadian, Boisterous Bruiser, Friends with Wild Animals, Gasshole, Loves to Make Fun of His Opponents, Mighty Lumberjack Who Lives in the Mountains, Heavy Sleeper, Strong Fatty
  • Domains: Boxing, Lumberjacks, Animals, Canadian Stereotypes
  • Heralds: A Bear (actually his trainer) and a Squirrel (his "sparring partner"), Mad Clown
  • Allies: James Howlett/Wolverine, Doreen Green/Squirrel Girl, Teddie, Makoto Nanaya, Rexxar, Bashmaster the Unbreakable, Po, Winnie The Pooh, Banjo, Grumpy Bear, Naughty Bear, Snorlax, Chen Stormstout, Edge, Montana, Paul Bunyan
  • Rivals:
  • Opposes: Kotal Khan
  • Spear Counterpart to: Bayley (Currently on bad terms with her)
  • Bear Hugger, a Boxer native of Salmon Arm, Canada, found himself in the Pantheon one day after fellow Boxer Little Mac recommended him for the divine title of God of the Bear Hug. After a lengthy review, Hugger was allowed a spot and since he has been thankful for Mac's hospitality.
  • Occasionally seen in the House of Combat with a bear companion, who also happens to be his trainer (we are not making this up, that bear is really his trainer). People are still trying to figure out how he managed to befriend a bear and even ask it to train him (some attribute this to mysterious Canadian superpowers).
    • He also has a boxing squirrel partner that helps with his training. Whenever Squirrel Girl requires assistance to save the multiverse, Hugger will gladly lends his little partner to aid her every time, being proud to see his squirrel buddy landing right hooks right on the faces of Doctor Doom, Thanos or Galactus.
  • Apparently, he is familiar with fellow Canadian James Howlett, a.k.a Wolverine, having seen him wandering around the Canadian wilderness a few times. While he was initially intimidated by the mutant, Hugger knew he was a good guy due to his peaceful relationship with the local wildlife.
  • Has befriended virtually every bear deity in the Pantheon, ranging from the innocent Pooh to the melancholic Grumpy Bear to even the savage Bashmaster. Rexxar was surprised with Hugger's apparent charisma among ursines, which included even his own pet bear Misha, who is totally cool with the Canadian lumberjack.
    • Grumpy Bear was the toughest one to befriend, but it was nothing that a plate full of pancakes covered in genuine Canadian maple syrup could not solve (Grumpy was complaining about being hungry the whole morning).
    • After witnessing the great teamwork between Banjo and his bird sidekick Kazooie, Hugger has been considering getting his own bird partner, like a woodpecker or something similar, much to his squirrel's protest.
    • Hugger once got into a sleeping competition against the Pantheon's resident Snorlax. The duel took place on none other than Kumbhakarna, the sleeping giant himself, who was also acting as the referee of the contest. The competition took days, and when both Hugger and Snorlax woke up at seemingly the same time, there was no way to know who was asleep for more seconds as Kumbhakarna had overslept the both of them.
  • His friendship with bears has also allowed Hugger to gain new sparring partners in the forms of Po and Chen Stormstout. Hugger hopes that the Kung Fu moves he learned with both pandas will allow him to become a better boxer (the W.V.B.A. certainly didn't have a problem with that Dragon Chan fellow).
    • For the moves that require him to be drunk (taught by Chen), Hugger uses maple syrup, naturally. This is a trick he learned with Soda Popinski.
    • Incidentally, Hugger has also learned to use bear claws and large hammers thanks to Teddie and the aforementioned Bashmaster, but mostly to help with his logging work. Even Hugger doesn't think the W.V.B.A. are insane enough to allow those in the ring (although they probably are).
  • Hugger has found a lumberjack partner in the form of Montana and they often go logging together (they also spar against each other every now and then). While the peacekeeper was initially distrustful of Hugger's coaching bear (thanks to his frequent confrontations with the species), Montana came to respect and even befriend the animal after sharing some maple syrup drinks with it.
  • In the Pantheon, Hugger's main combat rivals (aside from the other W.V.B.A. boxers, of course) tend to be heavyweights like himself such as Rufusand Iron Tager. His favorite opponents are Edmond Honda and Zangief, as they're also expert grapplers like himself (sometimes, Hugger forgets that he is a boxer). The three of them are also very fun and polite with each other.
  • Whenever Hugger gets too injured after tough "boxing" matches, he seeks Tony Tony Chopper for medical treatment. The Canadian considers Chopper the best reindeer-human hybrid doctor there is, easily flattering Chopper (he tries to dismiss compliments by being insulting while simultaneously performing an obvious Happy Dance). Hugger has taught a few of his own boxing techniques for the reindeer to use in his human form as retribution.
  • Apparently, he is a big fan of fellow Canadian fighters Christian and Edge, having asked them to autograph his boxing gloves, his wool hat and even his squirrel (incidentally, this means the squirrel's name is now "Christian Edge". It doesn't appear to be happy about this).
    • And speaking of Canadian wrestlers, it was through E & C that he learned of Luna Vachon in the House of Vampires and her ex-husband, Gangrel. Gangrel, having gotten really tired of the Cutie Mark Crusaders constantly trying to get him to befriend new gods, honestly had no idea what to think of Bear Hugger. Luna Vachon thinks he's pretty nice and even thinks that a Bewear as a follower is adorable...this made the Cutie Mark Crusaders have Bewear befriend Gangrel. After that, any mention of the "Bewear Incident" causes the vampire wrestler to freeze in terror. Bear Hugger likes the fact that Gangrel can be a softie for the Cutie Mark Crusaders and has decided to train them in boxing (much to his relief).
      • While the vampires are no longer taking care of the fillies (That's the New Day, mind you) Bear Hugger is still willing to have talks from time to time.
  • Known for being friendly and affectionate, he is always willing to give a big, old, Canadian Bear Hug to every deity he meets, including even some of the more villainous ones. The only exception so far is Kotal Khan, who may not be that evil, but certainly has a messy history with hugs.
    • Was surprised to find his female counterpart in Bayley, who wishes to hug everyone in sight. He was even more amazed at her wrestling skills, like her famous 30-minute Iron Woman match and couldn't believe that a hugger like her could be so deadly. Bayley's reaction was just that he has become her new friend, and she hugged him, his squirrel and his friendly bear coach. However, Bayley's descent into villainy has gotten nothing but a shake of disappointment out of him.
    • Another goddess that got Bear Hugger's attention was Fluttershy, but more of how the meek yellow pegasus gave a bear she was fighting a Neck Snap! Even he thinks that's going overboard (Fluttershy had to explain that she was being a chiropractor due to her bear friend having some tension on the shoulder).
  • "I'm a hugger, not a fighter. Take off, eh."

    That the folks around town
    Are wrong about
    And he cares for them all anyway
    With his signature smile
    And warm, damp loving embrace.
  • Meet Dropsy, the horrifying-looking clown and son of a circus-performing couple living on a small island. Tragedy struck one day when a fire erupted from a cigar during one of their performances which crippled Dropsy's father and took the life of his mother along with several other attendees in the audience. Dropsy would be blamed and demonized for the inferno but he is otherwise an innocent victim in the tragedy and just wants to give people a warm damp hug. Throughout his travels he, along with his dog Eughh and later his pals Mousy and Birdy, would help turn everyone's frown upside down and show he's not that bad of a guy. When his father collapses from overwork, Dropsy ends up breaking into the local S-Corporation's building to steal a special medicinal food to make him feel better. Unfortunately, it ended up making his father worse and the S-Corp CEO busted him for the theft. The CEO, after reading the situation before him, would then offer Dropsy to work for him in his newer circus in exchange for his father getting the treatment he needed.
    • After setting up the preparations, however, the S-Corp CEO reveals his true colors to kill Dropsy in the show and has mutated his animal companions for that very purpose. When that fails, he agitates them to make them go on a rampage. Dropsy is further demonized for the pandemonium but all the people he helped along the way stick up for him and direct him to go after the CEO. It turns out that both Dropsy and the CEO are alien brothers, and the CEO caused the fire in the first place to claim his birthright for himself and even killed another brother and his adoptive father but it turned out all for naught and was rejected by them. Even after everything that transpired, Dropsy tried to comfort him but is shot dead by the CEO in response. Before he expires, however, the clown is enveloped in a flash of light and wakes up in a spaceship and reunites with not only his father and pets but also his biological mother, whom he embraces with a warm damp hug.
  • On a clear starry night Dropsy made his way to the Pantheon when the his family's mothership landed in a forest clearing initially only to stop by to recalibrate some things. Dropsy only came outside to see view outside for himself but his dog Eughh ran off to mark his territory apparently not interested in the many evergreen trees around the place. Eughh went deeper into the woods which promptly Dropsy to go after him with Mousy and Birdy in tow. Meanwhile, there was a couple of deities who are out camping and were in the middle of telling scary stories to one another. Dropsy burst onto their camp just as the story hit the climax and made the two camping lovers flee in terror (and Eughh ended up peeing on the campfire). In the process of running away they lost their footing and took a deep fall off a hill. The two then woke up in a room they did not recognize but were soon greeted by a aged sickly man who managed to not only calm them down but introduce himself as the adoptive father of the "evil clown" they ran away from who ended up bringing them back to the ship and nurse them back to health with their equipment after which Dropsy made his way in with their belongings in his hands. Apparently, he doubled back to retrieve them but was side-tracked by an large mutant rat stealing them all. Having thoroughly misunderstood Dropsy they ended up accepting his hugs and said their goodbyes as they returned home. The next day, the ship was visited by envoys from the Court of Gods who invited him to the Pantheon after having received a good word for him by the couple. Dropsy made his acceptance to their proposal clear by bounding around and hugging them.
  • If one still remains suspicious of Dropsy then let this be known to all: There isn't a single mean bone in Dropsy's body. He is kind to everyone, even to the CEO who not hurt his animal friends but also killed his other family members, right down to mounting his brother and adoptive uncle's heads on a wall. He shares this trait with Pinkie Pie and Wander, who were among the first deities to welcome Dropsy into the Pantheon post-canonization and did not waste time to give the two his signature hugs. Ursula Callistis was also driven by though she did lose her way for a while due to an accident that crippled several people's magical capabilities though she does truly mean well at the end of the day. By some coincidence, Dropsy met her while lugging around a box of mangos with a golden sheen, a flashlight, an air humidifier, and some rope and decided to stop by and say hi. Certainly, he was odd, odd company but she has heard about Dropsy's innate nature of making people smile and pushed out despite just about everyone hating his guts originally. For that, he has her respect and accepted one of the mangos. And a hug too.
  • As his title would suggest Dropsy is a hugger through and through, perhaps to a fault. But as stated before he has good intentions and his hugs are just lovely. He would one day meet Bear Hugger, a Canadian boxer who is known to dole out his signature Bear Hugs (despite being a boxer, but what else is new for the W.V.B.A.), and he was gearing up for his next boxing match but was clearly stressed about his missing boxing partner. Dropsy and his friends would find out that said boxing partner was his squirrel and they found him being troubled by an ugly-looking rat (again). They rescued him and escorted him to Bear Hugger who quickly regained his spirits and not only thanked the clown for his efforts but gave him a nice hug for his troubles. Since then, Dropsy has stopped by for Bear Hugger's matches and he also had made it a habit to hug the husky maple syrup drinker's opponents as well, win or lose.
    • Dropsy also came across Bewear, a Pokemon whom Bear Hugger became the partner to during his time in the Pantheon and trains with her frequently. Notorious for giving out crushing hugs due to not knowing her own Super-Strength, Dropsy nonetheless was determined to hug her and made careful preparations by preparing some protective armor. The "protective" armor is just worn-out football gear with extra padding duck taped on but it did its job and allowed Bewear to hug without risk of hurting Dropsy and for him to reciprocate it. Dropsy's oddly squishy body might of helped in that regard.
  • For all of Dropsy' efforts, there's just no fixing the poor reputation clowns have or people's rather common fear of them. From Gotham's Joker to the extraterrestrial Klowns, and a horrific ringmaster that is Oswald, the Pantheon just seems to have a whole load of cantankerous clowns ruining it for everyone else. And Dropsy is with them when it comes to this licentious lineup. Some have pointed out Dropsy' resemblance to yet another infamous clown and thus refuse to even entertain the thought of interacting with Dropsy which has seriously bummed him out. Still, Dropsy doesn't let that drag him down for long and continues to go out into the world and make people smile, one hug at a time.
  • Regardless of the unfortunate reputation clowns seem to have, for as many ironic clowns out in the world, there are just as easily many unironic ones as well who do truly wish to put smiles on people's faces. Ronald McDonald and Balan are fond of Dropsy's commitment to bringing joy and smiles to everyone he meets and the feeling could not be any more mutual. To Dropsy, he is amazed by the large scale in which they bring joy to people and could not help but hug the two for their hard work.
  • Dropsy looks normal amongst his species but to human eyes he comes off as rather hideous, part of which contributed to his fearsome reputation. Seiichirou Kitano and John Merrik had similar troubles with their own appearances eclipsing the people beneath them, though the former is totally oblivious to such a thing. For Kitano, Dropsy himself admittedly was a bit put off by him but was nonetheless determined to make him happy and hug him. If you were to ask Kitano himself he was happy to be hugged by and be friends with an actual clown. John Merrik, while believing Dropsy to a bit overbearing when it comes to hugs, is endeared to him. It helps that the Elephant Man himself can relate to ostracization thanks to his own deformities, even if in the end Dropsy isn’t actually deformed.
  • Through word of mouth from other gods, and a good word by John, the Freaks made sure to welcome Dropsy into the Pantheon. As they came to see the clown as one of their own, they made an offer to protect a kind soul like Dropsy. Dropsy does not quite understand the full implications of such a promise, but was happy to have made and hug so many new friends in such a short timeframe. The Freaks are also very fond of Dropsy’s animal friends. (Vrkekker)
  • One day, Dropsy receive an important call from his mother regarding some important business. Said business involved an important diplomatic meeting with their race and the Blorg Commonality to forge and strengthen relations. Being the prince meant he had to attend and come the important it could not have gone any more smoothly if Dropsy tried. The new aliens were notorious for their repugnancy but Dropsy didn’t mind, though, and welcomed the fungoid aliens with open arms. Each and every one of them. The meeting ended up being way longer because of that but no one really cared, the Blorg especially. He had difficulty adding them as friends on social media, however, both because he never worked with one before and he lacks actual fingers on his hands. With some assistance, he made one but isn’t as active. He’s too busy making people happy, after all.
  • It's general knowledge that when it comes to Dropsy himself people fall into two categories of either being dead terrified of him and his appearance or having warmed up to him thanks to his inherently altruistic nature. And yet, there exists a lesser known third section of people who have come to view Dropsy as a sort of messianic figure. From the special circumstances surrounding his birth, his humble upbringing and overall compassion that's outright healing to the humiliation and betrayal he suffered and even his murder and subsequent resurrection it isn't that far-fetched to think so. While it would be a stretch to say these people worship Dropsy, they do look at him with a degree of awe wherever he goes. While general Dropsy doesn't know what a Jesus is but doesn't linger on the thought for too long and continues to go out and make people smile.
  • Dropsy had made many, many friends over the course of his time in the Pantheon. If you were to ask the person he connected the most to you would be most surprised for him to point to a nameless girl accompanied by a butterfly. Its a truly bizarre friendship, no doubt about that, especially when comparing to the many people the clown connected to. And yet, the two seem to have the greatest time when around one another. The simple answer to this question lies in the fact that on top of their similarities, and even in the Pantheon where all languages are understandable, he truly is in touch with her language.

    SCP-999 
SCP-999, Deity of Friendly Tickle Torture (The Tickle Monster)

A depiction of SCP-999 by ProfSnider.
  • Demigod (Object Class: Safe)
  • Symbol: Itself
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Friendly Tickle Torture, Blob Monster, Being Nice To Literally Everyone, Friend to All Living Things, Sweet Tooth, Loves Hugs, Induced Euphoria With A Touch, Team Pet, Shapeshifting, May Be The Scarlet King's Offspring And Destined To Defeat Him
  • Domains: Tickling, Cuddling, Friendliness, Blobs
  • Under watch by: The SCP Foundation
  • Allies: Baymax, Fred Rogers, Ditto, Zac, Olaf, Papyrus, Cerberus, Krypto the Superdog, Jake the Dog, Pinkie Pie, Stocking Anarchy, Mello, its entire house (mostly), the House of Joy and Happiness, The Blorg, Rachel Roth/Raven
  • Enemies: The Dementors and only them. It is that friendly
  • Tolerated by: SCP-682
  • A little upset over: Those who hate friendship, the House of Hatred and Rancor and Khorne, The Joker, Penelope Mouse, Long John Silver, Felix (Red Vs Blue), Hedorah
  • The SCP Foundation contains many strange and dangerous objects and entities. However there is one SCP who may be the most benevolent of them all. That being SCP-999, the Tickle Monster. An orange slime with the consistency of peanut butter and composed of an oil-like substance, touching it induces euphoria. It likes to use its gelatinous mass for friendly tickling by enveloping them, and helping out people who are sad. Unsurprisingly, the Foundation has 999 as a pet.
  • Has become a pet of sorts to its own house, and one of the friendliest deities period, up there with Baymax and Papyrus. How friendly is it? SCP-682 got along with it, though has stated that "That feculent little snot wad can [DATA EXPUNGED] and die". Unfortunately the euphoria 682 released caused a fit of extreme laughter to the personnel, allowing it to escape. The Joker is interested as to how this could be used in conjunction with Joker Venom. 999 merely gave constructive criticism that his sense of humor could be a bit improved.
  • SCP-999 has one, and only one enemy, and that is the Dementors. This is due to the nature of the two being completely antithetical to one another. Dementors spread and feed off misery, SCP-999 spreads happiness and does whatever it does to make people feel better. Amusingly enough, the adorable blob is extremely toxic to Dementors, and may be one of the few things that can kill them. Harry Potter deities are very interested with this. The creature is like a living patronus.
  • A living orange blob, it gets along especially well with other blobs. As such Zac, Ditto and Melona are very close to it. SCP-999 can shapeshift, usually to a large beanbag chair. Ditto can do it much better, leading the blob to ask Ditto for some help on better improved its own shapeshifting abilities. Given Melona, some suspect the creature might have "other" interests in her, but most just say so as a joke.
  • While not strictly a Blob Monster, Reuiniclus is another friend of SCP-999, who was attracted to the Pokemon's huge arms and thinks they'd be great to give hugs. And while a Blob Monster, Hedorah and SCP-999 aren't on the best terms. This is due to Hedorah being an entity of pollution and devastation, while it feels it should be friendlier.
  • In terms of behavior, SCP-999 acts a lot like a playful dog. For this reason, it can be seen playing with actual dogs in the House of Canines. Amusingly Cerberus was found playing with it, which led Hades to investigate. It was thought he'd be angry that something was distracting his guard dog, but seeing them play caused him to burst into laughter and let the blob be. He still needed to recall his own dog, leading to a sad and grumpy Cerberus being pulled away on a leash.
  • Doesn't have a digestive system or any organs to speak of, but instead consumes matter in the same way an amoeba does. Doesn't like meat, much preferring to eat candy like M and Ms and Necco Wafers. Really enjoys sweets, so it's completely unsurprisingly it got along great with Mello and Stocking Anarchy.
  • Usually seen in the House of Joy and Happiness, leading to near-fatal levels of cuteness with it interacting with Chiyo and Yotsuba. However it will often move over to the House of Despondency instead to make the people there feel better. Fred Rogers adores SCP-999 for bringing joy and good will to so many people, like himself.
  • Close to the entire Friendship house, however it doesn't approve of traitors to the idea of friendship. As such it is against Penelope Mouse, Long John Silver and Felix, but can't really bring itself to hate them or anything besides maybe the Dementors. Khorne despises something so adorable and loving, with not a mean bone its body, but SCP-999 is completely oblivious to this.
  • The Tickle Monster has gotten more attention from Raven recently. The reasons behind it are kept top secret, but it's likely that she knows the truthnote  behind SCP-999's existence; 999 is not Safe class but Thaumiel, and the offspring of the Scarlet King himself with the Seventh Bride. The Tickle Monster takes after its mother and is destined to defeat his father once he grows up. However he's still a child, so Raven has complied with the Foundation keeping this secret lest the numerous Satan allegories, gods of evil and malicious members of the Hall of Demons target the blob. This is also why 682 tolerates 999; they may be half-siblings, though they're different as night and day.
