The Incubators, Divine Weasel Mascots (Kyubey, QB, Jubey)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kyubey_and_Jubey_Fanart_3223.png
Left: Jubey. Right: Kyubey.
  • Greater Divine Beings
  • Symbol: /人 ◕ ‿‿ ◕ 人\
  • Theme Song: Sis Puella Magica!
  • Alignment: True Neutral in their own minds, roundly considered Lawful Evil or Neutral Evil by everyone else, particularly Post-Upheaval.
  • Portfolio: Devil Deals, Super Empowering, Truly Alien Morality, Manipulative Bastards, Weasel Mascots, Batman Gambit, Lack of Empathy, Cat Smiles, Hijacked by Ganon (for Kyubey), Wreaking Suffering For The Sake Of The Universe.
  • Domains: Magic, Wishes, Despair, Hope, Emotion, Secrets, Reincarnation.
  • Allies: Bernkastel, Nui Harime, Satan, Nagi Homura, Monokuma, Mard Geer Tartaros, Kogane/Kamen Rider Mars, Yuu, Bill Cipher.

  • Evil Counterpart to: Haro, Morgana, Luna, Daxter
  • Special Relationship: Madoka Kaname.
  • Opposed By: Shiro Kanzaki (their former High Priest)
  • So far there are two known Incubators, the one known as Kyubey (who goes by many names) and the one known as Jubey. There are likely more of them - though whether they differ significantly from the ones that already known is up for debate, and Jubey is a special case: an incomplete Artificial Incubator created by Kazumi's friends to replace Kyubey.
  • Incubators lack an understanding of emotion, believing it a rare mental illness, and as such have made an enemy of the entire House of Emotion. Kyubey is uninterested in the rivalry, but they keep punching it in the face anyway.
  • Residents of Gensoukyou may to bring a chill to Kyubey, if it could show fear. Especially Flandre Scarlet, whom seems to think of Kyubey as a doll to play with. Jubey doesn't understand this fear of Kyubey's.
  • Can't be in the same room as Sayaka Miki/Oktavia von Seckendorff because of her habit of impaling them with her swords.
  • Can't be classified as Gods/Goddesses due to the fact that they are not of earth.
  • Kyubey can't understand why, after everything his kind did for them, those humans hate him so much (then again, Kyubey has trouble understanding the very concept of hatred).
  • Kyubey's emotionlessness caught the eye of Discord, who attempted to pull one of his signature discordings on him. Discord first tried to provoke Kyubey, which failed, leaving Kyubey as untroubled as ever. Then he attempted to manually reverse his emotions, which again failed because Kyubey has none. Rather than give up, Discord developed a new spell that forced Kyubey to experience every emotion that exists at once and left him like that until he was rescued by Madoka. Needless to say, this experience has not improved Kyubey's view of human emotion. It DID, however, earn Discord an earnest round of applause from Johan: THAT is how you Mind Rape someone.
    • This last spell left something of a side effect, he is forever connected to Discord first (and maybe only) friend, Fluttershy. In response of discovering this, Fluttershy has made it a mission to subject Kyubey to THE Stare... which can't work; the Stare can only work with someone that has some emotion. And Kyubey has none.
  • Kyubey once expressed interest in Mithra's power to manipulate Mantra, but only did so when Asura was outside of the Pantheon. Like everyone else, even he admitted that making Asura angry is a mistake no matter who you are.
  • Has since found out that Tzeentch was the one who was behind the system for contracting Magical Girls and their eventual transformation into witches. Thankfully, Madoka Kaname reworked the system and excised the corruption.
    • Kyubey would like it known that they had no idea that the previous system was powered by such a force as The Warp. Using that to keep entropy at bay would have ended up causing a worse end to the universe than simple heat death, and they are genuinely concerned with the fate of the cosmos.
    • All this considered, everyone was genuinely stunned when Kyubey tried to bring the Witch system back during the events of the "Great Upheaval". When questioned, he revealed a shocking truth: the entire above statement turned out to be patently untrue! The Witch System never ran on the Warp! The entire time, that had been a lie spread by Madoka Kaname, in order to dissuade Kyubey from trying to bring the System back. Unfortunately, the little weasel had learned the truth. Its former ally, Kroak became furious with it, and if not for Homura pulling her own retribution, he would have nuked the little weasel with a "Deliverance of Itza".
  • Their Resurrective Immortality has made them a target for many gods who've had off days and need to blow off steam. Issei Hyodo enjoys using a decidedly lethal variant of "Dress Break" to reduce them to what vaguely resembles pulled pork. After, of course, his best Kenshiro impersonation. Broly frequently enjoys blasting the little weasels to hell, since he'll never run out.
  • Beerus The Lord of Destruction absolutely detests the little creatures; the reason least of which is that they insist on preserving a decaying universe by creating despair and destroying hope, but more importantly that they made his beloved friend Madoka cry. Perhaps worst of all is that no matter how many he vaporizes, there's ALWAYS more of them.
  • Has lately found good company in Satan, who enjoys his deceptive nature and common view of humans as cattle: the two are scheming a two-pronged plan that benefits them both, where Satan gains dominion over the Earth and rules it with an iron fist, while Kyubey convinces the oppressed masses to make contracts and fight back against Satan (efforts that would be doomed to failure) and thus gain tons of energy for the universe. He has since joined up with The Usurper faction.
    • It's for similar reasons that he has good company with Mard Geer, who is pleased to meet another who thinks of humanity as he does and likes the method by which Witches are made. Kyubey in turn is impressed with the Mard's utter dedication to his goals and allows nothing to get in the way.
  • They have recently shown a great fear (or as much fear as they can show) of Mr. Slave, due to an incident where he shoved both of them up his ass. They have since refused to go anywhere near him.
  • Gust is enemies with Kyubey because she hates his methods of business.
  • Their lack of emotion means Nekron can't see them, something they plan to use against him one day.
  • Recently, he attempted to make a contract with boys instead of girls. This was the result.
  • Kyubey used to be great allies with the Anti-Spiral, who also utilizes despair for the greater good, until Kyubey decided to find Madoka following her deification. The Anti-Spiral didn't like the idea of bringing back a Hope Bringer from another plane of existence, and declared Kyubey insane for crossing the line.

    MGM Lion 
Leo the Lion, God of Studio-Identifying Symbols (The Bald Lion)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mgm-logo.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Stylized Lion, The Marquee, the red drama mask, and the phrase "Ars Gratia Artis"
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Those idents at the start of movies, lion's roar, the roaring became more impressive as the years went on, The Golden Age of Hollywood, shadow of former self
  • Domains: Advertising, Cinema, Lions, Logos
  • Followers: CLG Wiki
  • Heralds: The MGM lions before him, mostly Jackie and Tanner.
  • High Priest: TriStar Pictures Pegasus
  • Allies: Cosmos, Dream of the Endless, House of Theater and cinema-related deities in general, Aslan, Bugs Bunny
  • Enemies: Onaga
  • Rivals: Walt Disney, Mickey Mouse, Simba, Mufasa
  • Complicated Relations: Don Bluth
  • Opposed by: Eric Cartman
  • MGM. One of the oldest, most important and influential film studios in existence, although it's lost a big chunk of its immediate importance as time went on. Has a really memorable logo, or vanity plate, consisting of a lion roaring. Said lion, known simply as Leo, ascended on the strength of his "church", the Closing Logos Wiki, praying hard enough for it. And because he's one of the few vanity plates who's actually viable as a character.
  • Though it's agreed that he's supposed to be the very personification of Hollywood studio MGM, some deities and theologists go a bit further and believe him to be Irving Thalberg reborn and given immortal status after his untimely death at the age of 37. Whatever the truth, Dream of the Endless respects him as a fellow storyteller deity, and Cosmos because of so many of his films created essential heroes and have brought people joy.
  • His temple is a generic one, except for the entrance, which was sculpted to resemble the film ribbon that surrounds him in the logo. The Ars Gratia Artis motto is carved on the upper part of the ribbon, while the drama mask is painted on the floor right at the entrance. It creeps out some deities to have to walk over the mask to enter Leo's temple.
  • The House of Beast had to investigate whether the claims going around of Leo being a victim of animal abuse were true. Leo spoke for himself; no, he was never strapped to a table to do his thing in the logo. He was simply incited by his trainer and photographed as is.
  • Nostalgic for the Golden Age of Hollywood and the Hays Code, the latter to some deities' alarm. Though it's understandable to some degree because he was far more imposing in those times. His reminiscing often takes the shape of a Rambling Old Man Monologue, which other deities, including his subordinates, roll their eyes at. Despite everything, he's learned a long time ago to accept that times and people just change.
  • Has quite an amount of influence over the House of Theater and tends to be involved with any arts program that's going on in there, especially if it's film-related. He gets a significant say in the organization of film cycles, helping choose themes and selecting films to be shown. Of course a little bit of bias towards his films is inevitable, but then that's why these things are decided in a committee.
  • Has authority over any deity created under him, and to a lesser extent over deities whose tales were spread by him. Most of those deities perceive him as a Benevolent Boss who can take a joke (like how Tom the cat takes his place in the logo sometimes), even if he's a bit out of touch with modern times. Evil deities like HAL 9000 and the Wicked Witch of the West don't like having to obey him, but they don't have much say in the matter. But Leo knows better than to make any of his creations do anything that goes against their nature.
  • He had become estranged from Don Bluth back in the mortal world, on account of creating sequels of questionable quality to some of his tales made under his banner. Now that both are present in the Pantheon, Leo has been trying to apologize and rekindle ties. Bluth refuses, having developed a distaste for the big studios. Mrs. Brisby remains loyal to both of them.
  • Doesn't much care for Walt Disney since they've always had a bit of a feud over The Wizard of Oz. It's gotten especially bad since his successors have made a sequel, a prequel and are in general trying hard to make people associate Oz with the Disney name. Leo would have less of a problem with this if these efforts weren't blatantly using MGM's vision of the work. He regularly reminds Walt that even if he ends up taking possession of Oz in the end, it's still MGM's beloved classic they are building on. His relations with Mickey Mouse (who's pulled Vanity Plate duty as well, sometimes) are coolly civil at best, for related reasons.
    • Leo has also has a rivalry with Disney creations Simba and Mufasa, but it's more a good-natured rivalry; they like to compete to see who has the most impressive roar. Given how unnaturally loud they are, other deities in the vicinity clear away to avoid the risk of becoming deaf. Ironically it's been pointed out by the more animal-savvy deities that their roars all sound like an enhanced tiger's, with a dash of plane engines.
  • Very good friends with Aslan, as Leo has a similar benevolent role towards his subordinates as Aslan to Narnia, besides having similar moral views. Aslan is sort of related to Disney, but that's not a problem since he wasn't created by them.
  • Much of MGM's pre-1986 library is owned by Warner Bros., in the mortal world. In the Pantheon, Leo has full guardianship of MGM's library; this fact has served to assuage some of the bitterness he has over having to rely on others to take care of his creations in the mortal realm, so now he's on pretty good terms with Bugs Bunny, the closest thing to a top WB representative in the Pantheon, and therefore the guardian of MGM's library until Leo ascended; he didn't have a problem with passing on those duties to the lion. After patching things up, Leo has discovered that MGM and WB's close ties now manifest in the ability to summon the Warner shield to defend himself. Many deities find this fascinating and wonder if other logos can be summoned and what their effects would be.
  • Is a target of mockery for Eric Cartman because MGM was founded by Jewish people, so Leo serves as a proxy for Cartman to take out all his antisemitism and create conspiracy theories about how the Jews are taking over the Pantheon. Leo has nothing but contempt for the badly raised, foul-mouthed boy and is offended at his prejudice, not just for himself but because many other studios in his time were founded by Jewish people. The lion has decided that an insignificant kid isn't worth mauling and that it's better to pay no attention to Cartman other than yawn boredly at his rants.
  • He and Onaga are natural antitheses to each other, both being logo gods but of polar opposite alignments. Leo absolutely despises the gratuitous violence and evil that someone like Onaga promotes.

Lesser Gods

    Ash Ketchum 
Ash Ketchum, the Merchandise-Driven God (Satoshi, Pokémon Master, Twerp, "Ashley," "Satoko")
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alolaash.png
  • Lesser God (Intermediate God when using Aura)
  • Symbol: A PokéBall next to his trademark hat (it varies with each region that he goes to)
  • Theme Song: Gotta Catch 'Em All, Mezase Pokemon Master
  • Alignment: Lawful Good, mostly
  • Portfolio: Monster Hunting, Collection, Being A Master, Mass Media, having the ability to use Aura, always being ten years old, Befriending Beings Worthy of Divinity, Absolute Benevolence, Determination, Chastity
  • Domain: Destiny, Glory, Spirit, Temptation, Trade, Innocence, Beasts, Traveling
  • Allies: Arceus, Yugi Muto, Misty, Brock, Chase, N, Mewtwo, Lucario, Latios and Latias, Neku Sakuraba, Beat, Rhyme, Curious George, Shobu Kirifuda, Greninja, Mario, Link, Samus Aran, Lilo & Stitch, Sparkynote , Lan and Megaman.Exe, Gentaro Kisaragi (and every other member of the Kamen Rider Club), Atalanta
    • Partner: Pikachu
    • Heralds: Ash has an entire lab full of Pokémon back in Kanto he can use in the pantheon and Pokémon spread out all over the Pokémon world who will come when he needs them to. As of recent note in the Alola region, his current team is Rowlet, Dusk Lycanroc, Torricat, and he has the Rotom Pokédex with him.
    • FRIENDS! with: Serena
  • Rivals: Red, Hareta, Kazuya
  • Enemies: Team Rocket (although they can go into Enemy Mine territory if need be), Ghetsis Harmonia, Cyrus, Lysandre, Melkor
  • Was challenged by Yugi Muto to a card game for his powers; the duel is still going on. The rest of the Pantheon breathes a sigh of relief at keeping these two busy.
  • Is rather annoyed when Gods prefer the girth of his first rival, Gary Oak, and not his.
    • It was yet another day when Terumi was rambling about his magnificence to the pantheon yet again. Ash, along with Brock and Misty, secretly went to his temple without getting caught to write in posters of what Gary would say to Ash when he was a Jerkass. The Next thing he knew, there posters on Terumi's temple saying "Gary was here; Terumi is a loser." Many deities find this very funny.
  • Seems to have a kindred spirit with Cosmos. It's probably because they have similar voices.
  • Is happy to find his friends Misty and Brock also in the Pantheon, but is also weary on Team Rocket as opposing gods. He is willing to put that aside though when it comes to Ghetsis, since the Team Plasma member tested his mind control technology on Pikachu as part of another plot to gain control of the legendary Pokémon in the Pantheon.
  • Became quick friends with Chase, sharing their deep passion for their respected Mons. Chase had once attempted to try his hand on landing a position in the House of Commerce with his Foodons to share Ash's position, however they didn't make nearly as big an impact as Pokémon had. Despite this, Chase holds no grudge and still enjoys his company.
  • When he gains a new Pokémon on his team, he often discusses their relationship with N. This also made him a great friend to the Friendship Gods. This aspect of him made him shocked upon finding "Project: Alternate Gentaro". Alongside being one of the original gods chosen to help figure out Gentaro's death, he is now preparing to enter the Friendship Asylum with Pikachu to end this madness. His encounters with the Kureshima brothers have been brief for fear of Pikachu unleashing Volt Tackle on them both. Ash's attempts have also failed due to the Asylum feeding him a dark "Aura", increasing his Aura powers tenfold but at the cost of his sanity. Pikachu was able to escape though.
    • Fortunately, Ash's strong will prevented his soul from being snatched, and thanks to the influences of Misty, Brock, Lucario, Neku Sakuraba, and Beat, he was able to fight off his corruption (with the help of Pikachu's Thunderbolt) and be the only Asylum Guardian to avoid being comatose.
      • And he topped that up by somehow getting his soul in Limbo—swapping him with his mirror self—and helped the Cutie Mark Crusaders who wound up in Limbo a second time where his kindness and innocence helped stopped the darkness within Limbo from destroying the Pantheon by rousing everyone to give their prayers and hope to the fillies to knock it away. During that time, he rescued an amensiac Gangrel and Xion from being swallowed by a collapsing Limbo, the two of them grateful for his actions...not that he remembers them anyway.
  • Has the ability to use Aura. While many Gods have suggested that he train with that ability, he's declined. But with Lucario's ascension, Ash has decided to give it a try once more.
    • A recent discovery has noted that whenever he battles alongside Greninja, Greninja somehow obtains a form dubbed "Ash-Greninja", and their minds become one, to the point that whatever pain Greninja obtains, Ash also feels. There's now a big case of study between the two gods. Unfortunately this lead to Lysandre kidnapping Ash and Greninja in order to claim them both as "guides" for his new world. One thing is for certain, Mega Evolution energy can't control both of them. Has become good friends with Lan and Megaman.exe, who helped him control the Ash-Greninja form although that wasn't enough for him to win the Kalos League, though he did finish in second.
  • Do not confuse him with the trainer Red and any of his different versions. It will most likely not end well. Naturally, Ash is oblivious to the whole conflict. Some gods do wonder what would happen if The Mob decided to possess him though.
  • Was pleasantly surprised to find Latios and Latias in the Pantheon, particularly after Latios' Heroic Sacrifice. It doesn't seem he's noticed the blushing, affectionate way Latias acts around him.
  • Once, Curious George went to the House of Commerce and stole his hat. He gave it back after a while and quickly became friends with him. The Man with the Yellow Hat has Ash on speed dial after that incident in case he needs help taking care of George in parts of the pantheon he cannot reach as a non-combatant non-deity. He is actually grateful to find someone who can understand George as well as he can.
  • Along with Misty, Brock, Pikachu and Team Rocket, Ash is expressly forbidden from entering Cyberspace after a certain incident.
  • One of the nicest gods in the Pantheon, Ash has earned the friendship of many gods of different genres:
    • He quickly befriended Samus Aran after hearing she saved Pikachu in the Subspace Emissary. "Any friend of Pikachu is a friend of mine." he said.
    • Both the Master Chief and Jim Raynor speak fondly of Ash; John because he finds a kindred spirit in Ash for his heroism and determination; Raynor because Ash reminds him of his second-in-command Matt Horner.
    • Arceus, God of all Pokémon, enjoys Ash's company, because Ash returned the Jewel of Life and proved humanity's inherent goodness. For that reason, both Arceus and Tyrael, the Archangel of Justice, have made a covenant to protect the boy from demonic threats.
    • Other Nintendo gods, such as Mario, Link, are friends with Ash and wish him well on his travels.
    • Ash was happy to see Diancie and Xerneas again after their last adventure together. He felt a bit nervous around Yveltal but Xerneas was able to smooth things over. Ash and Xerneas are yet comment whether or not Xerneas is behind Ash's ability to remain a ten-year-old.
    • Is best friends with Twilight Sparkle since they both believe in The Power of Friendship. Ash agrees with Twilight that friendship is the greatest power of all. This has also made him really good friends with Gentaro Kisaragi, the god empowered by friendship. When they first met, they exchanged handshakes.
    • Also BFFs with Steven Universe, thanks to sharing the same all-loving nature as him.
  • Because of his wholly heroic nature, Ash has a bad habit of making enemies with evil gods in the Pantheon:
  • He occasionally visits the House of Food, whenever he feels hungry. Which is a lot. Quite a few gods are amazed at how a kid can eat so much.
  • A common subject of debate among the Pantheon is how Ash attracts the attention of several females in his home universe and yet is too oblivious to notice.note  The Nurturers of the House of Love have joked that perhaps they should help Serena ascend to the Pantheon, if only to make things more interesting for Ash. After all, she was the subject of his first kiss (not counting Latias).
  • Met Atalanta after the latter had heard his reputation of befriending beings worthy of divinity. After hearing Atalanta's story, Ash couldn't help but feel sorry for her, as she had come from a world harsher and crueler than his own. Even so, he said that her desire to protect children was truly admirable and promised to do whatever he could to support her. He is also fond of patting her in the head the same way he does to Pikachu, and amazingly, Atalanta doesn't complain.
  • Has gotten the interest of various gods upon learning how he now has an Ultra Beast on hand. Poipole, for the most part, has just been snuggling Pikachu or any god that has a bright electrical discharge and means no harm, but considering what Poipole evoles into...
  • Ash dislikes Kazuya for several reasons. To start with, the battles he participates in are far more brutal (summoners are expected to attack and be attacked with live weapons), often end with the losing party forced to give up their valuables at swordpoint (if they survive at all), and summoners have the nasty habit of fusing off their old demons once their usefulness has passed. Kazuya retorts his world is nowhere as well-off as Ash's, so everyone has adopted a dog-eat-dog mentality, and since his demons don't grow or evolve like Pokémon and he only has a limited amount of storage, as much as he might want to keep his old demons, he needs stronger ones to survive.

PEPSIMAN!

Pepsiman, God of Products Transformed Into Superheroes

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/b76t_vciaaejpb2.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Pepsi Logo
  • Theme Song: PEPSIMAN!
  • Alignment: Lawful Good, Chaotic Evil in the The Angry Video Game Nerd's universe
  • Portfolio: Amusing Injuries, Mundane Made Awesome, The Blank, Butt-Monkey, Long Song, Short Scene
  • Domains: Drinks, Superheroes, Advertising, Injuries, Products
  • Allies: Segata Sanshiro, Protonjon, Vinny, The House of Heroes
  • Enemies: Morris, The Angry Video Game Nerd, Anyone who makes fun of Pepsi
  • Opposes: Jontron, Soldier: 76
  • Pepsiman is the living embodiment of Pepsi, bringing all the thirsty people the refreshing and tasty drink that is Pepsi. He arrived one day where the House of Food was a having a shortage of drinks, quickly arriving and using his signature powers to fill the house with Pepsi. Before he got the chance to leave, he tripped over and ended up accidentally destroying half of the House he was in. The court of Gods later allowed him to have his own temple to keep doing his job in the pantheon.
  • By default he is considered a superhero, even if he doesn't do much crimefighting. He is more or less a delivery boy (Or Super Delivery Boy if you will) of Pepsi, but even then, he seems to be on good terms with the House of Heroes and he did help the authorities of his world a few times (At least for Pepsi related things that is).
  • Pepsiman's claim to fame comes from his videogame, which is a source of his constant Amusing Injuries and bizarre hijinks he gets involved with. The other most notable from said game is the live action segments featuring an unknown man with a Pepsi addiction, said footage make some people believe it comes from a Snuff Film.
  • It's obvious that Pepsiman is not fond of his parent company's biggest competitor, Coca-Cola. In fact, whenever someone brings up the Pepsi Invaders/Coke Wins game, he gets very mad.
  • He doesn't pay too much attention to other competitors outside of Coca-Cola, but one in particular has been bothered by his ascension and that's none other than the CEO of Joja Corporation, Morris. He is pissed that with Pepsiman's sudden arrival, his products have been getting less and less attention (besides obviously many people knowing they are terrible) and instead prefer to seek Pepsiman for a more refreshing drink.
  • A former follower of Segata Sanshiro given their shared over the top advertisements and (surprisingly for Pepsiman) being from Japanese origins. Segata himself welcomed Pepsiman to his temple, but he was initially upset that his main game was on the Playstation. Before Segata tried to beat him up, as he usually does, he did mention the time he appeared as a Guest Fighter in Fighting Vipers, a Sega Saturn game, which was a Sega Saturn game and so Segata spared him.
  • There have been a few deities that are familiar with the Pepsiman videogame, like Protonjon for example. However, one particular deity that stood out for Pepsiman was Jontron, who mistakenly assumed his game didn't have any music, ignoring the trademark theme song that is characteristhic of Pepsiman or that he believes that because his world is very centered in Pepsi that maybe there is a hidden conspiracy pulling the strings from the shadows.
    • There was also Vinny from Vinesauce, who did manage to beat his game but also tried to corrupt it, but arguably had a hard time doing so. Initially he had a conflicting opinion on him but because he let it slide after he heard he finished the game for real.
  • One time he had an encounter with Soldier: 76 which didn't end very well. Jack was having trouble with a Pepsi vending machine and so Pepsiman as usual went and provided him with a Pepsi. But because he objectively prefers Coke, Pepsiman got mad and used his PEPSI PUNCH! on him, sending him flying. The two haven't been on good terms ever since.
  • Another incident involved Pepsiman's Evil Counterpart Bepisman engaging him in a duel. Pepsiman came out on top and prefers if no one talks about Bepisman.
  • Some people are a bit unneverd about Pepsiman's lack of features besides his mouth that he tends to open when using his powers, which doesn't help much.
  • Can also be found at Heroic Archetypes.
  • As of 2019, there's an alternate version that's pretty much the opposite of what the ascended version stands for, and has targeted the Angry Video Game Nerd into reviewing the video game adaptation of his exploits. This one was defeated by the Nerd with the help of the TV-Games dude from the same game as this Pepsiman. Thanks to this traumatic experience, the Nerd refuses to drink Pepsi, much less allow Pepsiman anywhere near him.

  • Afraid of: Mello, Uncle Howee
  • Mixed Opinion by: Benson
  • SpongeBob ascended after his second movie was released for a generally positive reception from critics and fans alike as well as outgrossing the first movie, showing that his franchise was still going strong. His best pal, Patrick Star, ascended alongside him for being, well, his Fat Best Friend.
    • In fact, SpongeBob had the chance to ascend even earlier as the God of Hamburgers after beating King Neptune in a cooking duel, but refused once he was told that he couldn't bring his best friend Patrick with him at the time.
  • SpongeBob is well-acquainted with all the deities originated from the Nickelodeon universe. In fact, he is even seen as a sort of leader by them, despite the presence of powerhouses like avatars Aang and Korra. This might because of all the attention he receives in their own universe.
  • Dog from CatDog is particularly loyal to him, probably because they sound similar.
    • SpongeBob's own voice has also allowed him to form Odd Friendships with Spyro the Dragon and The Ice King. It's not every day that people see a talking, cheerful sponge befriend a little, cocky dragon and an insane, old wizard.
    • However, SpongeBob appears to be scared of Uncle Howee, who he finds too creepy even for him. Even stranger is that SpongeBob thinks Howee looks a lot like his #1 fan Patchy The Pirate, which makes things even creepier for him.
  • SpongeBob has tried to befriend every cephalopod deity in the Pantheon with mixed results. Octodad reminds him of his old "pal" Squidward and they seem to get along nicely, The Inklings think he is fresh enough thanks to being "pals" with this Squidward figure that keeps popping up on street art in their world, Ika Musume likes him on virtue of him being a sea creature in the first place. SpongeBob also received a magic conch shell fossil as a gift from Omastar, using it frequently to tell him what he can do or not and occasionally worshipping it as a greater deity called "Lord Helix".
    • The more malevolent cephalopods are not very fond of SpongeBob though. Blooper dislikes sponges as one was once used to defeat its superior, Gooper Blooper. Cthulhu doesn't appear to scary him at all, and his presence annoys the ancient God. The Kraken once tried to eat SpongeBob, but spat him out for being talkatively obnoxious while inside its stomach. Ursula was busy preparing a new magic potion, but SpongeBob's well-intentioned ditziness made Ursula screw up the recipe and have it all backfire on her, causing her to send her eel henchmen, Flotsam & Jetsam, after SpongeBob.
    • The worst would be his relationship with Davy Jones. It all started when SpongeBob came to the legendary pirate in order to return all the dirty gym socks that were left inside Jones' locker, which ended up with Patrick accidentally showering the pirate with them. Davy Jones swore revenge at both SpongeBob and Patrick for that.
  • He is a big fan of Aquaman (Arthur Curry), although the Atlantian is a bit confused on why SpongeBob keeps referring to him as "Mermaid Man".
    • He and Patrick once tried to befriend Kingdra, Aquaman's partner, in order to ride her around. After several attempts and Dragon Pulses to the face, they eventually succeeded.
  • Sometimes, SpongeBob joins Ariel in spontaneous musical numbers at the House of Music. The numbers are usually a hit or a miss as SpongeBob tends to vary between being an amazing singer or an atrocious one.
  • Oddly enough, despite being a confirmed Asexual (never mind about him having an actual gender in the first place. The House of Knowledge is still conducting studies about this), SpongeBob has a curious attraction for the fishman known as Rikuo, as such, he sometimes tries to act as a sort of manservant, competing with Patrick.
  • While strolling around the Pantheon one day, he eventually had a Random Encounter against Undyne, who challenged him to a duel. Unfortunately for SpongeBob, it was one of those days where he could barely lift a teacup, so he stood no chance against her. He did, however, challenge her to a rematch, which she accepted. As such, SpongeBob is now training every day by practicing his karate at the House of Combat and working his muscle mass by lifting plushies.
  • He and Patrick tend to get along with Steven really well, usually dragging him along on for some fun, reckless antics, much to Pearl's chagrin.
    • Things didn't get better when SpongeBob casually mentioned that Pearl reminded him of his whale friend who also shares the name "Pearl".
  • SpongeBob, being a lover of karate, has found a sparring partner in Makoto Nanaya at the House of Combat. He thinks Makoto resembles a lot his squirrel friend Sandy Cheeks, except for the lack of an astronaut suit.
    • Through Makoto, SpongeBob has also met Doreen Green, a.k.a Squirrel Girl, who claims that she does know his friend Sandy, having summoned her and several members of her family once in order to defeat Doctor Doom (again).
    • The Engineer also claims to have met a super smart, karate squirrel back in Texas, although he admits it could have been a hallucination caused by him accidentally ingesting a piece of peyote cactus.
  • SpongeBob is currently working at the House of Food under Bob Belcher, who thinks the sponge is a talented fry cook, albeit a bit too eccentric.
    • He also has a side job selling chocolate bars to deities around the Pantheon alongside his best friend Patrick. Needless to say, they had some trouble when they tried to sell some to Mello.
    • Being the workaholic he is, he also has another side job restoring certain parts of the Pantheon, working alongside Mordecai and Rigby and under Benson. The gumball machine admires the sponge's dedication to his job (unlike a certain blue jay and raccoon), although he often gets annoyed by SpongeBob's more childish traits and occasional clumsiness. SpongeBob himself loves working with Mordecai and Rigby, even though the latter two barely do any work at all.
  • SpongeBob once made a hilarious Light Yagami impression during a skit at the House of Theater, which everybody loved, except Light himself of course, who was not amused at being mocked by a talking sponge.
  • He once had a laughing contest against Tidus, which lasted for hours. There was no clear winner, as no one was really able to stand around for more than 3 minutes in order to judge.
  • SpongeBob sometimes gets into debates with other mascots about who has the most popular and profitable franchise, although those tend to get nowhere.

  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: A pink flower bow.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: The Color Pink, Merchandise Everywhere, Funny Animals, Civilized Animals, Appealing to Girls, Boys, Children and Adults, Japanese Cuteness.
  • Allies:
  • Kitty has no actual powers, but she was elevated from Quasideity to Demigoddess once the gods learned of her true secret ability: being in many places at once.
  • Has befriended a few of her heavily-merchandised Western counterparts, such as Garfield, Spongebob Squarepants, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Mickey Mouse. None of them realized that she could talk, because they rarely ever saw her mouth. Likewise, she was confused by Garfield, another Talking Animal who (rarely) opened his mouth when he spoke.
  • Her cuteness pretty much caused a three way struggle between Chiyo, Yotsuba and Rena Ryuguu who immediately went into I'm Taking Her Home with Me! mode when they met for the first time. This then caused other gods to pretty much die of cuteness overload from the four until Hello Kitty handed the three stuffed toys of her liking, that way they had their own Hello Kitty of their own. Then other younger goddesses came and begged for their own Hello Kitty toys from her. Let's just say that Hello Kitty's been going into the House of Craft often because of that.
  • Once got into a Street Fighter mood and soon had dolls of her dressed up as Ryu, Chun-Li and M. Bison (OF COURSE!). Ryu's reaction was confused, Chun-Li cooed over hers, and M. Bison just took a doll of his own and stormed off.
  • Is actually not a cat, despite her appearance!

  • Domain: Commercial, Bathing

  • Enemies: Those who use lady-scented body wash, Albert Wesker.
  • He's on a horse (backwards).
  • Surprise, he's actually on a mountaintop playing those sweet "sha-la-las" you love to hear.
  • Can turn tickets into diamonds.
  • Asks any ladies to 'look at her man, then back to him, now back to her man, now back to him'… before starting an awesome conversion.
  • While he was flattered that Wesker would parody him, being a good man he is, he is not amused with Wesker's evil acts and, in a deadpan tone, wishes that Old Uroboros wouldn't sell.
  • One of his followers revealed a parody of his commercial starring Madoka. She giggled after watching it. Her friends had different reactions, though. Kyoko laughed raucously at the ridiculousness. Mami smiled at its silliness. Sayaka and Homura agreed that it was insulting to Madoka as it also promoted Kyubey. The Incubator was amused and hoped to use this to lure girls into making Contracts but was…forcibly prevented. Charlotte…turned away in shame, as cake was why she ended up a Witch in the first place.
  • It's rumored by some that he is actually an Overdeity hiding his true power. The Old Spice Man has laughed at the idea and denied it — it's just that his manly scent is so overpowering to even the greatest gods of the Pantheon that it distorts their view of his other abilities.
  • There's actually another Old Spice Man in existence, a constantly-shouting bald muscleman who loves showing off his muscles and yelling mostly about "POWEEEEERRRR!!!!" (unrelated to one of Emperor Palpatine's more infamous moments). Both the current Old Spice Man and this man have been debating who should get to sit on the throne or whether they should share.

  • Enemies: The House of Ruins and Destruction, the House of Crime, Sideshow Bob
  • Opposes: Bigby Wolf, most of the House of Reptiles, except for the TMNT, Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner
  • Rival: Segata Sanshiro
  • The small and charming gecko one day appeares and challenges Segata Sanshiro for his position. The Pantheon as a whole favors the gecko with the reasoning that Sanshiro only appeared for one year while the gecko has appeared for much, much, much longer and more numerous commercials than him and thus give the former the position while Sanshiro was given a new position of Abusive Advertising.
    • Sanshiro was NOT happy with losing his position. He tried to get back at the gecko by trying to step on it when the latter was still mortal, which the gecko retaliates by trying to bite any body parts of Sanshiro he is able to reach. Fortunately, the Pantheon was able to intervene before any serious damage was done. The two have been rivals ever since.
  • A representative of the GEICO auto-mobile and homeowners insurance, the gecko has extensive relationship with many homeowners and the House of Travel in the Pantheon.
    • However, his position as representative of an insurance company has earned him the ire of the House of Ruins and Destruction as well as the House of Crime since, according to them, he and his company "took out the joy of destroying properties".
  • Dissociates himself with the House of Reptiles since he thinks many of them are too destructive and is bad for his reputation. The only one he is willing to talk to is the TMNT, even though he is sometimes confused by their lifestyle.
  • He is one surprisingly good terms with most superheroes since the superheroes job creating a lot of need for Hero Insurance paid for by their world's government, something which he is happy to provide. The fact that he sounds like one is just a bonus.
  • Because the gecko represent the GEICO company as a whole, the gecko has many different heralds from his company in order to run the temple for him when he is busy making a new commercial. These heralds has made him many allies in the Pantheon. Most notably Babe, a friend of Maxwell the Pig and Fred Flintstone, whose followers is the GEICO cavemen.
  • He has an extensive network of connection with many fairy tales characters since his company put out quite a few ads that parody classical fairy tales. Of notes is his friendship with Princess Aurora since he pities her being cursed and unable to wake up unlike the Sleeping Beauty of his world while being wary of Bigby Wolf since the guy blew down an entire house in his warpath.
  • Has nothing but disgust for Sideshow Bob because of Bob's destructive behavior, threatening children and voice that sounds similar to him.
  • Form a solid relationship with the Blorg race after the aliens mistook him for another ally aliens. The gecko is interested in their culture and selling spaceship insurance for them while the Blorg have an interesting specimen to study.
  • Grows to dislike Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner because of their destructive tendency after an encounter with the two of them.
  • Most people who visit his temples are unnerved when encounter Kash standing in a corner and just staring at them while wearing a paper note that said "This is the money you could have saved with GEICO". It happens often enough that the gecko made a designated area for Kash in order to not freak out visitors.

    The Trix Rabbit 
The Trix Rabbit, God Of Sadistic Cereal Commercials (Silly Rabbit, Tricks)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trix_rabbit.png
  • Quasidiety
  • Symbol: A bowl of Trix and a cup of Trix Yogurt
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Harmless Villain, Butt-Monkey, Wears Easy To See Through Disguises, Always Fails
  • Domains: Cereal, Yogurt, Breakfast, Rabbits, Sadism
  • High Priests: Sonny the Cuckoo Bird, Chip the Wolf, The Crazy Good Kids, Toucan Sam, The Craver, Lucky The Leprechaun
  • Allies: Anyone who lets him have a bowl of Trix, Bugs Bunny, Wile. E Coyote, Miltank, Nostalgia Critic
  • Enemies: Anyone who does not let him have a bowl of Trix and taunts him while doing so, Calvin, The Trix, all members of the GUAE Trollkaiger
  • The gods noticed one day that there was no one occupying the Cereal Vice Reward trope. They also noticed a surprising lack of Trix cereal and yogurt at the House of Food. When they investigated the cause, they found that this rabbit had stolen it all. He was eventually forced to give it all back, but some gods took pity on him after learning that he was constantly bullied by children from his world who never let him have Trix, even after he bought some with his own money, and so they gave him his own temple.
  • The Rabbit can often be found trying to steal Trix from people. Sometimes the gods are nice and let him do so, but sometimes they aren't and stop his attempt and taunt him by saying, "Silly Rabbit, Trix are for gods!"
  • Every year there is an election in the US, the gods allow the Rabbit to eat a bowl of Trix unimpided. They have scrapped having votes because it's clear that the Rabbit would always get an overwhelmingly high Yes vote.
    • On some days, though, the GUAE has the members of the Trollkaiger steal it anyway and make him look even more pathetic. When this happens, he usually spends the rest of the day sulking in his temple, refusing to speak to anyone. Some gods asked him if he would like to punish the Trollkaiger for messing with him, but he replied that he was not a violent rabbit.
  • Some gods have suggested letting the Rabbit buy his own Trix from the House of Food. The Rabbit replied that he didn't think that was any fun or sneaky, and he likes being both. However, it should be worth noting that at one point he did by his own Trix, but the kids stole it anyway.
  • In another sick event while he was mortal, the Rabbit did actually buy some Trix on his own.... But his milk carton was empty. He has since made certain to buy milk to go along with any Trix he gets. He gets it from Miltank, who doesn't mind helping after hearing how badly he was treated while he was mortal.
    • When the Nostalgia Critic was looking through commercials to review one day, he saw that paticular incident. Viewing the people who made it as bad as the kids who constantly tormented the Rabbit while he was mortal, he decided to help the Rabbit get Trix whenever he could.
  • It was discovered that once the Rabbit got Bugs' help to try to steal some Trix, but even this was not enough to actually get a bowl. Still, he remains on good terms with Bugs.
  • Once, when Calvin was eating some Trix, the Rabbit tried to steal it from him. He wasn't successful, and was humiliated thoroughly after being forced to play Calvinball and finding it extremely confusing. The Rabbit still isn't over that.
  • After hearing that there were a god known as the Trix, the Rabbit tried to go over and see if they were the cereal. However, Icy, Stormy, and Darcy were none too pleased with the Rabbit, viewing him as an oddball. The Rabbit ended up being blasted by magic and forced to retreat, later making sure to stay well away from their temple.
  • The Rabbit has often tried to get Wile E. Coyote to help him with his schemes to steal Trix, but, unfortunately, Wile. E's reputation for failure proceeds him and things just get worse whenever he does. Notably, the Rabbit insists that he cannot eat Trix if it is blown up, but Wile. E still insists on using explosives.
