His true form
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/imprisoned_ss.png
The Imprisoned, his sealed form
  • Intermediate God, Greater God if his full power returned
  • Symbol: His demonic blade and his Imprisoned form
  • Theme Song: Battlefield of Demise - Demise - Final Demise
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Cursed his enemies in an eternal cycle, starting the endless strife in Hyrule, Reincarnated through the manifestation of his hatred, The Demon King, Slaughter the people of the Surface, Sealed in the Sealed Ground as the Imprisoned
  • Domains: Curse, Reincarnation, Hatred, Demons
  • Allies: Ghirahim, Diablo, Baal, Fortinbras
  • Worthy Opponent: Any "Strong" Humans, noteworthy includes Guts, Akuma
  • Enemies: Zelda and Link, Fi, Impa, Dante, Aleph, Naoki Kashima/Demi-fiend, Flynn, Nanashi, All "Weak" Humans
  • Special Relationship: Ganondorf
  • Demise led a demonic horde and slaughter the humans in the Surface on a conquest for the Triforce, but was sealed away by Hylia and her allies. He eventually was resurrected by Ghiraham but was defeated by Link in battle, in which he cursed "the Blood of the Goddess" and "the Spirit of the Hero" that his hatred will never rest and the three will forever be trapped in a cycle that will shape the fate of the world.
  • As one can guess, his main reincarnation is Ganondorf, the male Gerudo who wants to conquer the kingdom of Hyrule and the bearer of the Triforce of Power. It became a bit of a paradox with Demise and Ganondorf in one place as Ganondorf is his mortal reincarnation of himself. Though despite the two being the one and the same, they don't see eye-to-eye due to wanting the power of the Triforce for themselves, and since Ganondorf possesses the Triforce of Power, it would be inevitable for the two to fight for the piece of the Triforce.
  • Though he has reawakened in the Pantheon, he found that he can only assume his Imprisoned form as he appears to be much weaker in this realm. Of course, Ghirahim was pleased to see his master marking his demonic feet in the temple grounds so he has arranged many plans to restore Demise to his full strength to permanently remain in his true form so that he may lay claim on the Triforce.
  • He views humanity as pathetic insects waiting to be slaughter when they stand between him and the Triforce, prior to his fight against Link. In fact, it is only a big problem if Demise actually notices you rather than cutting you aside.
    • He traded blow with Guts once, when Demise wanted to test the mortal man who kills demons on a daily basis if he is truly strong to face the king of demons. He came to view Guts as a warrior equal to the Hero that defeated him.
    • He was intrigued with a man known as Akuma, who strongly resembles him, especially in his Oni form. He wishes to test the man who is capable of destroying one's soul with a single move. Rumors have been going around since that Akuma may be another of Demise's reincarnation due to his destructive power and similar appearance but it is likely just a coincidence.
  • As he leads a horde of demons in his onslaught for the Triforce, he showed respect to the demon lords within the Pantheon. He, especially, certainly respects Diablo and his brothers from the Burning Hell. Sure, they lost to humans before, but that doesn't stop them from coming back in one way or another, much like himself.
  • The Old Gods considered making a deal with him due to their similar agenda of damning their enemies upon death. If he agrees with destroying all life, then Demise may claim the Triforce without any opposition in his way. Of course, Demise won't make a deal if he is only a pawn in the plan.
  • Though he never saw any of his demons possessed or claimed by another, he would view them as weak if they allow the pathetic humans to control them. There is also the fact that he is not one to be given demands by others, in which he should be the one giving demands. So he doesn't like Gul'dan, who has summoned and controlled demons in his hand.
    • So the fact that there are three people: Aleph, the Demi-fiend, and Flynn, who are demon slayers and can control demons is quite a sport for the Demon King.
  • Angels and demons are known enemies, in which Demise know no demons in his world. As the Demon King, he is opposed by many angels that view him no different than other demon lords. Despite this, he doesn't care. As long as they bar his path for the Triforce, he'll just slay any angel that impedes his path.

Lesser Gods

    Tokiya Mikagami 
Tokiya Mikagami, God of Revenge Abandonment
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/525289-mikagami_7036.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His water sword Ensui
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Abandoning Revenge, Ice, Water, Bishōnen, Swordsmanship, Snarking, The Voice of Hikaru Midorikawa, The Utter Downside of Vengeance
  • Domains: Emotions, Sword, Ice
  • Allies: Recca Hanabishi, Cygnus Hyoga, Aquaman, Kurama Minamio, Lamia Loveless
  • Not So Different From: Kanji Tatsumi
  • "Do not dedicate your life in vengeance. Those who do so will always find death at the end of their journey."
  • Followed Todd until he realized that vengeance would get him nowhere.
  • Really, really hates being told that he looks like a girl, and shoots a Death Glare at anybody who makes that mistake.
  • After Sasuke's deification, Mikagami became his antithesis. He's not amused with his revenge prioritization and thinks despite his 'Genius Prodigy' status, Sasuke is a complete idiot who's dooming himself instead of accomplishing anything. Recently, Sasuke has started to become saner and having a reason for his revenge, along with the fact that another Goddess who just recently ascended that's hung up in revenge, he's a bit relieved. But he still choose to be his antithesis.
  • Though he never expressed it that openly, he's actually relieved that his team leader, Recca Hanabishi, has ascended. Although for one thing that Tokiya noticed... his brains hasn't grown any larger since last he met him.
  • Found quite a lot in common with the Plant God, Kurama, with Tokiya acknowledging his extremely cunning mind. Occasionally, although it's not very often, they can be seen playing chess.

Reznov in World at War
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reznov_defector_771.png
Reznov in Black Ops
  • Lesser God
  • Alignement: Chaotic Neutral
  • Theme: Call of Duty: World at War Original Sountrack: Reznov's theme
  • Portfolio: Badass Russian that suffers a lot, friendly communist, killing germans civilians in vengeance for Stalingrad, then using Alex to kill Dragovitch by brainwashing him, Being dead for the entierty of Black Ops 1
  • Domains: War, Revenge
  • Allies: Alex Mason, Takeo Masaki, Nicolai Belinski, Tank Dempsey, Tashkent, Heavy Weapon Guy, Zangief, Zarya, Alexei Stukov.
  • Teeth Clenched Team Work with: Edward Richtofen, The Medic

  • Headbutting Heroes: Prinz Eugen, Bismarck
  • Opposes: The House of Betrayal
  • Viktor Reznov was a sergeant of the Red Army that valiantly fought in WW2 against the Germans, mostly seeking revenge against the destruction they caused in his homeland. His brutality in the attacks on Berlin, where he said to kill a hundred for every victim of Stalingrad was a result of that, but what cemented his ascension was learning that he had managed to get revenge beyond death by brainwashing Alex Mason to kill the men responsible for Dmitri's fate.
  • Alex Mason was happy to see his old friend again, but he was hesitant at first, thinking he was hallucinating him again. Turns out this Reznov was the real deal and they finally can have a friendly conversation ever since Mason escaped Vorkuta.
  • He can sometimes be found reminiscing with Takeo Masaki, as while their countries were enemies during WW2, they were both betrayed by their leader they followed with blind loyalty. He is otherwise happy than Nikolaï got to be a hero of Russia, although he is kinda confused about his looks, being very similar to Chernov in his appearance.
  • Is at odds with the House of Friendship, as while they appreciate the efforts he put into venging his friend, his methods to do so isn't to their tastes.
  • Was pissed when he learned Dragovich had ascended, and even more so when he discovered nobody can die for good inside the Pantheon, and worse, he got to meet other Russians that sided with him like Vladimir Makarov and Imran Zakhaev. He considers them traitorous scum that should be punished for their crimes.
  • Given his experience in Stalingrad and how the Germans murdered his father, Reznov hates Nazis with a passion. Of course he didn't waste time making enemies with big organizations like Hydra or Millenium, but they are wary of him since he is capable of taking great measures to get back at people.
    • This even extends to the heroic German soldiers like Prinz Eugen and Bismarck. Reznov is not willing to forgive them and only stays amicable with them because they haven't provoked him yet.
    • On the other hand, he can barely stand Edward Richtofen but does so because he respects his partner Nikolai. But if it was up to him he would kill the doctor himself.
  • Used to be a marksman before losing his right finger in Stalingrad. Dimitri then took over the marksman role from them, but he isn't half bad with a rifle, just not a good as before.
  • Was happy to meet other Russians in the pantheon. He did make a few friendships here and there.
    • Was surprised to learn that in the distant future, the eastern part of Russia would get invaded by robots. Hearing this story from Zarya reminded him of the time he fought the Germans, and since Zarya also has a disdain towards the one that ravaged her home, he can understand her stance. However, Zarya isn't particularly comfortable about Reznov's brutal methods.
    • He bonded with Alexei Stukov given their shared role and how both were betrayed by their higher ups. Reznov is horrified about Stukov's fate and how even in the pantheon he can't escape his infection, but since he managed to exact revenge on the person that made him like that in the first place, he earned Reznov's respect.
  • Considered the one person that the House of Betrayal would avoid in his entirety. Reznov views traitors in the same way as the Nazis and would often hunt down members of said house because of their positions. However, they are second to exacting revenge against Dragovich, so the house isn't a huge priority for him at the moment.
  • Apparently saved Mason, Woods and Hudson from dying in the Afghan desert. However, Woods believes that Mason was just hallucinating him (Since he encountered Kravchenko beforehand, having not actually died with his encounter with Woods in Vietnam).
