Pantheon / Analysis and Records

Go To

This is where all records of the Pantheon's history is stored, including ascensions, depowerings, title changes, and major events. Even if someone were to try and cover up a stupid thing they did, this house will have the evidence here thanks to top-notch surveillance. Of course, not only are the records kept, but also looked into great detail to make sure the facts are correct. Security is very tight, as much of the information here is valuable.

Alice, Goddess of Deadly Books (The Book of Truth)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alice_bibliomania.png

  • Opposed by: Rapunzel, Quasimodo
  • Feared by: Ermac
  • Interests: Hermaeus Mora, Shang Tsung
  • I heard a loud sound. I opened my eyes. It would seem the sturdy coffin that sealed me has been broken. Did someone do it on purpose? Or was it an act of nature? I'll leave this coffin and fill my belly for the first time in a while. I'll eat without thinking of anything. I'll eat. Eat. Eat, eat, eat, and eat. It is, after all...My only happiness.
  • Alice awoke to a blank room with the number 431 on her left hand and a door labeled 430. A being known as Serpent welcomes her as the 431st guest of his manor, and the first to come in a long while. His mansion is always packed, each room being added for each new guest, and when the 666th guest arrives a “party” to celebrate its completion will be thrown. Until then, any wish she desires will be granted should she remain inside and wait, but Alice has no such interest in that. Even faced with the catch of her body rotting the more she distances herself from her own room, Alice presses on. Unlike the other guests, the little girl wished only to see the real world and all the happiness out there, not the ones built on lies inside the manor. It’s an admirable goal, but there’s something far more sinister behind it and Alice herself.
    • Once, she was a princess who could never forget but was plagued with a high fever. Confined to her bed all her life, her only happiness came in the form of reading, but she desperately wanted to experience the world. Soon, the princess burned through each and every book brought to her, all to create the book to end all books: The Book of Truth. Becoming one with this book, it went to process all of humanity into words in its pages, and nothing they could throw at it seemed to stop it. They soon got the idea to exploit its gluttony for knowledge and sealed it away in a titanic coffin, and the world soon began to move on. There was an attempt to recreate books of their own by one country, but these copies couldn’t compare to the volume of the original and soon a rival country put the facility housing them to the torch resulting in many of the books being lost. Serpent, and the “manor” he curates, is one of the said books which Alice willingly entered to personally see her “brother” after breaking free from her tomb and successfully consuming the rest of humanity, including Serpent.
  • Left with no other information to devour, Alice aimlessly wandered the remnants of her lifeless world. Despite being deprived of her happiness, she didn’t take it so hard as she cheerfully sung chouchou while skipping and weaving through bygone derelicts. Alice’s wandering would come to an end when she came across some strange beings who were exploring the cityscape themselves. These people came from the Trope Pantheons, and after turning their emotions and memories into words Alice soon came to learn about the Pantheon herself. She would once again indulge in her one and only happiness, only this time see a world far larger than her own. All their stories, all their experiences…
  • She first manifested in the House of Knowledge and while she attempted to keep a low profile Alice eventually gave in to her hunger and began consuming people at an alarming rate. The Book just couldn’t reign itself in when there’s so much knowledge in a bigger world it had not seen before. The House was quick to respond to her threat, and quickly issued an evacuation for the more vulnerable deities while advising the stronger ones to help them while exercising caution due to the Book’s abilities. The Book of Truth remained relentless, however, and only through overwhelming force was she beaten out of the House though she still managed to give them the slip right at the very end.
    • In spite of this setback, Alice fully intends to come back and consume whatever she can. Be it from those with vast sums of knowledge such as Hermaeus Mora and Histoire to those with considerably fewer pages to their name in comparison to herself such as Wan Shi Tong and Grimoire Weiss. None of them are willing to fork over their beings to satiate the voracious book, though Hermaeus Mora has an interest in utilizing her almost single-minded desire for his own ends. Twilight Sparkle and Cyrus Albright are disgusted by the lengths Alice went to acquire all the knowledge she had. Cyrus himself notes Alice to be not unlike Lucia, who also went to great lengths to hoard all sorts of knowledge simply because.
  • Her single wish to experience the world is an understandable one, as it is shared by Rapunzel and Quasimodo, but the lengths she went to do so are beyond reason or sympathy. The two were rightfully horrified by how she went about gaining new experiences of the world where she ultimately destroyed it. One can even make a point how she isn’t really experiencing the world at all and is still only “reading” about the world in a sense, and that her desire is as aimless as the other tenents in Serpent’s manor.
    • Mary, in her goal to exit the Fabricated World and become a real human being, resorted to manipulation and even murder to see it through. She also opposes Alice because of the latter’s destructive nature obviously poses a threat to the freedom she finally attained in the Pantheon, and is also concerned her process of transcribing everything would also inadventendly destroy the Fabricated World in the process. Alice finds it such a shame that Mary remains a painting in the Pantheon, if only because she is unable to transcribe her experiences in Weiss Guertena’s painting. A picture is worth a thousand words, but a thousand words is only so much.
  • Bedman and his sister Delilah were children born with vast intellect, so vast in fact that it threated to “overheat” their bodies and kill them and thus the two needed to be put into a stasis-like sleep to survive. Seeing his intellect and power, Alice desires to record his existence into her many pages. Of course, Bedman isn’t going to fork over any sort of knowledge to such a monster and he most certainly isn’t going to allow her to find out about the Backyard. Some have brought up the former princess’ similarities to Bedman, who was also bedridden but was gifted with the ability to never forget, but to those who are able to hear him Bedman is quick to note the differences as well. He, at the very least, wanted an “Absolute World” that would bring back not only his sister but all the people he has killed and even took the time to remember their identities for that very reason and was genuinely distraught upon finding out he couldn’t. Alice, one the other hand, purely wanted to fulfill her gluttony and the only reason she remembers her victims is to serve that very goal of hers.
  • If her name wasn’t already a dead giveaway, her story is very much like that of Alice journey across Wonderland. Being a gigantic memory consuming monster hasn’t endeared her to Alice, not helped by the Book of Truth’s desire to “properly” transcribe Alice’s story for herself. Other Alice Allusions tend to have the same opinion, such as Alice of the Blood Team and Zonda.
  • Alice’s defeat in the first Biblioclastic War came at the hands of biblioclastic rounds, specialized weapons imbued with concentrated magics that exploited the Book of Truth’s gluttony for knowledge. Anything else that was thrown at her didn’t even stop her advance. When humanity scrambled to use them against Alice after breaking free it had no effect by that point because she already had her fill of them by that point. The Pantheon has strong characters who are able to put up a fight against Alice, but the proposition of putting together rounds that have more of an effect against Alice was still an enticing one. Many in the House of Magic have stepped up to contribute, though their success is only temporary as the Book’s bottomless hunger overcomes the newer bullets at some point. Due to this, the Book’s ability to cheat death through sacrificing a soul, and the Pantheon’s nature surrounding death, the bullets are less about permanently stopping Alice and more so as a deterrent.
    • On the subject of weapon development, some powers around the Pantheon have thought of copies of the Book of Truth for military purposes once more. With the facility that once housed such research long-destroyed, and anyone who might have held such secrets now a part of the Book’s very being the project had to be made from the ground up. Alice herself knows about their attempts but is content to watch it unfold and see if any new “siblings” that pop up, much like with Serpent, even if she personally doubts any attempts could get even remotely close. Regardlessly of what transpires, Alice will most likley consume them by the end of it.
  • Her ability to consume and transcribe souls has attracted the attention of Shang Tsung, an ancient sorcerer whose deceit has earned him a curse that pushed him to consume the souls of others to survive. While interested in the billions of souls that lie within the Book, due to her destructive and almost thoughtless hunger he hasn’t entertained the thought of direct confrontation. For now, he seems content with using the Book against his enemies. Likewise, Ermac has no intentions of directly confronting Alice either and is genuinely fearful of every last one of his souls being consumed, a fate not unlike what happened to Serpent. Such a prophecy almost came to pass when he happened to be in a House that Alice was rampaging in, though was saved by the nearby deities repelling her attack.
    • Szilard Quates carries a similar fear in regards to Alice as she has, like him, the ability to assimilate people and their memories but on a much greater scale. And considering he went out being consumed himself, alongside suffering all sorts of other wounds beforehand, he has every right to be afraid of her.
  • Rejoice, for I shall keep you in my records. The fact that you were alive… That you surrendered yourself to desire, regretted, envied, cursed the world in your madness… I will not forget. Not even the tiniest, slightest, most insignificant wavering of your heart. All that you’ve seen, heard, felt... will remain as information forevermore. Even if all life eventually ceases to be.

    Fi 
Fi, Goddess of Precise Calculations and Insistent Assistance (Mistress Fi, the Goddess Sword, the Master Sword, the Blade of Evil's Bane, the Sword that Seals the Darkness)

    Hari Seldon 
Hari Seldon, God of Prediction Through Analysis
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hariseldon01_7764.gif
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A Scientific Calculator, the Time Vault
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Ancient Conspiracy, The Chessmaster, Omniscient Morality License, You Can't Fight Fate, Batman Gambit (on a cosmic scale)
  • Domain: Science, Math, Prediction
  • Followers: the Foundations, Aeolia Schenberg, Mavolio Bent
  • Allies: Samantha Carter, John Crichton
  • Opposes: The Dahaka, The Defiers of Fate, Akagi, The Nephalems
  • Regarded as the precursor of all sci-fi science, this little known yet powerful god resides at his lonesome in the House of Knowledge. He claims that he has mapped out the entire timeline of the Pantheon including how it will end. No one is ready to dispute that as he has been correct on many occasions.
  • Highly respected by Xanatos and Makuta, but they do not affiliate themselves with him due to the different nature of his predictions and his generally good alignment. The God-Emperor Leto, however, loathe him because he screwed up his Golden Path that was supposed to prevent prescients from controlling humanity's future.
  • Actually moved on centuries ago, but he predicted every possible event that his presence would be needed for and left videotapes labelled with a date and time of when to play them, which function more or less exactly as his actual presence would. He has the rank of Greater God because of the very real possibility that almost every deity in the pantheon is simply following the plan laid out by him. Notable counter-arguments include Deadpool and O-Haruhi-Sama, who may be impossible to predict or control. However, nobody really knows for sure.
  • The Gman may have been the one who ultimately caused Seldon to create psychohistory; or, he may just be acting all according to the Plan. Nothing the Gman has done so far seems to have screwed up Seldon's predictions, but confusingly this doesn't prove anything one way or another. Either way, Seldon's tapes haven't mentioned this and Gman isn't talking.
  • Engineering wonk Samantha Carter refers to the man as a living legend. While she did not know of him before her ascension, she held him to a high regard for all of his exploits. She often goes to his temple in order to check out his extensive library of notes. One can see her dozing off in a bench at times.
  • He was intrigued with relative newcomer John Crichton, specifically how he was able to adapt to space so quickly.
  • Is naturally opposed to those who constantly defy the odds. He is frustrated how some people manage to defy his predictions. All in all, it is all but a challenge for him to create more accurate algorithms.
  • Has devoted himself to a code of silence in regards to which faction will ultimately win out in the end. The GUAG was disappointed in his refusal to cooperate, but at least they were willing to accept things as they are. The GUAE and GUAD, on the other hand, has constantly tried to kidnap him to force the information out of his hands. This usually results in the other factions to come to his rescue. As for the GUAC, Lucifer is glad when his predictions fail
    • The only group he does hand out predictions to is the GUAL. He believes that YHWH is the best option to lead the Pantheon heading into the future. With that said, he will not assist the group any more than mere strategic battles. It is unknown whether he doesn't trust the Lawbringer or he predicts his downfall and won't tell him.

    The Nameless King 
The Nameless King, The God who was Erased From History (King of Storms, War God, Leader of the Warriors of Sunlight Covenant, Gwyn's Firstborn(?))
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maxresdefault_71.jpg
  • Greater God (Overdeity if he absorbed his drake. Which he doesn't want to do)
  • Symbol: His Drake, the King of the Storm
  • Theme Song: Nameless King
  • Portfolio: Badass Longrobe, Bonus Boss, Wielding a Lightning Spear, Riding a Storm Drake, Being the Last God of the Age of Fire, Physical War God, Betrayed Gwyn and siding with the dragons
  • Domains: War, Lightning, Battle, Dragons, Betrayal
  • Opposes: Gwyn and the majority of the Royalty House.
  • Allies: Leonidas, Mordred, Davion the Dragon Knight, Caim and Angelus, Four, Io, Bahamut, Jakiro, Paarthurnax, Salamandinay, Ange, Mr. Eaten, Xion, Solaire, Zinnia
  • Rivals: Ares, Kratos, Khorne, Hercules, Thor, Storm, Aang
  • Enemies: Gravelord Nito, Grima, Smough, The Chosen Undead, Dragonslayers, Acnologia, Ragnaros, Nurgle, Deathwing, Alduin, Nefarian, The Monster Hunters
  • Special Relationship: Ornstein
  • Odd Friendship: Zuko
  • A king who committed an act of great betrayal in the past. For this, his very existence was erased to the point that even his name was lost. Now, he roams the world as the Nameless King, his history long forgotten.
    • While his identity is unknown, there are many in the Pantheon who believe that the Nameless King is actually Gwyn's firstborn who betrayed his father for the dragons during the war.
  • Has modelled his temple after where he fought at Archdragon Peak. Because of this, his temple is known for its intense lightning storms and thick clouds.
  • The Nameless King doesn't get out much from his Temple. He seems content with staying with his Storm Drake, whom he cares for very deeply. Some believe the reason why he betrayed his father(?) was because of his friendship with the Drake, as lore describes their bond as a miracle.
    • Another possible reason why he betrayed his father(?) was because he fell in love with the Storm Drake. Not only that, some believe that the two are actually Priscilla the Crossbreed's parents, since she is the offspring of a Lord and a Dragon.
  • For reasons unknown to most of the Pantheon, Gwyn appears to have no love for the Nameless King because of what he has done in the past. The feelings seem to be mutual as the King has nothing but contempt for the Lord of Cinder. So far, the two Gods have tried their best to avoid one another, but many wonder what would happen if father and son were to cross swords.
    • Thanks to Gwyn's influence, the Nameless King is barred from ever stepping into the House of Royalty. When asked why he would do that, Gwyn's answer is that he doesn't deserve to be a Lord.
  • The deities who believe him to be Gwyn's firstborn are trying to figure out why he betrayed his father. Other then the aforementioned befriending a dragon, others think he didn't care for his father's "cowardly" tactics against the Everlasting Dragons. In contrast to the Gods, he admired the Dragons for their upfront fighting that he, as a War God himself, appreciated and respected more than his fellow Lords did.
  • Has a very strong relationship with many dragons in the Pantheon and has even become friends with some of them. He has also become friends with the dragon riders Zero and Caim with his dragon Angelus. However, there are some dragons that the Nameless King would not associate with, one of them being Nefarian whose experiments of dragons and drakes remind him very much of Seath, the albino dragon who betrayed his own kin. However, the one dragon that he loathes the most would be Acnologia. Might be because he was a human dragon slayer who turned into a dragon after killing so many of them.
  • Was well known as a powerful War God during the Age of Fire. He actually started a rivalry with other Gods of War like Ares, Khorne and Kratos.
    • The King of Storm has also become rivals with both Hercules and Thor. Maybe to see who is the worthiest son of a God King? Or maybe he wants to be stronger then Hercules and master lightning further than Thor.
  • Thinks the Chaos God Nurgle is a disgusting being... which isn't an opinion debated by many. However, the Nameless King's hatred for him has to do with his spread of disease. Perhaps it reminds him of Gravelord Nito as he spread his "cowardly" miasma of death and disease against the dragons. He wasn't very happy when he learnt he was in the Pantheon as well.
    • He also doesn't like Ragnaros wanting to burn everything in his path. Perhaps he was soured on deadly firestorms thanks to his experiences with the Witch of Izalith and her daughters of Chaos.
  • Found a kindred spirit with Mordred. Mordred, in turn, is happy to find someone to relate too when it comes to betraying your father for something you believe in. He has even offered his assistance in claiming Excalibur so she can prove to be a rightful king.
    • He has also gets along with very well with fallen princess Ange. Might be because they were disowned by their families and allied themselves with the dragons they used to fight against.
    • Nameless King has also developed an odd friendship with Zuko despite his use of firebending. Again, this has to do with both being disowned sons.
  • Rumored to have been Ornstein's teacher, thanks to their similar fighting styles. There's also the fact that Ornstein's Dragonslayer armor and weapon can be found in Archdragon Peak after leaving Anor Londo to search for Gwyn's firstborn.
  • Acts frigidly towards any dragon slayers in the pantheon. However, he is easier on the ones from Fairy Tail universe, with the exception being Acnologia, when he learned they aren't really "dragon slayers" and more that their magic is good against them. He also found out they were actually raised by dragons and consider them their family.
    • He's also icy towards the Monster Hunters when they do battle with dragon-type monsters like Gogmazios and Brachydios. And only the dragons. He has no real attachment towards any other type of prey they hunt.
  • The Nameless King holds a great deal of respect for Leonidas and his Spartan army, thanks to their bold attitude towards combat and sheer determination. It reminds him of his own attitudes towards fighting.
  • Even though King has never faced the Chosen Undead before (actually, he fought his follower, the Ashen One), he considers him an enemy. This might be because he believes that it is responsible for killing Priscilla the Crossbreed(?), though the Chosen Undead hasn't ever once claimed it hadn't.
  • The House of Betrayal have no idea what to think of the Nameless King. Was he a traitorous son for siding with the dragons even though they were enemies to Gwyn, or does his loyalty to the endangered dragons define him more than his opposition to his father?
  • Most were surprised when Solaire entered his temple and offered some "Jolly Cooperation" to the legendary warrior. If he is indeed Gwyn's Firstborn, then he watches over Solaire as he does anyone under his covenant "the Warriors of Sunlight".

    Sun Tzu 
Sun Tzu (lit. Sunzi in pinyin), God of Military Treatises and Divine Patron of Using Deception As A Weapon (Birth name: Sun Wu; style name: Changqing)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/deadliest_warrior_legends_sun_tzu.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His Book, The Art of War
  • Theme Music: The Art of War
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral

  • Rivals: Nobunaga Oda
  • Worthy Opponents: Julius Caesar, Niccolo Machiavelli
  • Enemies: Count Dracula, Mori Motonari, General Shepherd, the evil rulers in the House of Royalty
  • Annoyed By: Zapp Brannigan
  • He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot be victorious.
  • When one mentions The Art of War, one name comes to mind. One that commands respect from the good and the bad: Sun Tzu, philosopher, general, strategist, and all-around badass. And he has taken his rightful place in the Pantheon.
  • When word of Sun Tzu's ascension reached the Triumvirate of War, consisting of Alexander the Great, Kratos and Apocalypse, not to mention that the Triumvirate is now a Quadrumvirate, as Sun Tzu would be joining them, their reactions were...varied. Alexander welcomed the Chinese deity, while not a conqueror, but a skilled general and warrior nonetheless. Apocalypse, on the other hand, dismissed Sun Tzu, as he was not a mutant, and therefore, unworthy. Kratos, however, is of mixed opinion. On one part, he recognizes Sun Tzu as a skilled general and warrior. On the second, Sun Tzu rubs him the wrong way when he criticized his brutal Spartan tactics: The general who wins the battle makes many calculations in his temple before the battle is fought. The general who loses makes but few calculations beforehand. What really upsets Kratos is that he knows that Sun Tzu was right.
  • Sun Tzu's magnum opus, The Art Of War, has influenced many historical and important figures for well over 1,500 years, of which include the first Emperor of China, Shi Huangdi, Ho Chi Minh, the leader of the Vietnamese Communists, of which his top general, Vo Nguyen Giap, drew inspiration from his teachings to successfully repel the French and American forces during the Indochinese and Vietnam Wars. Sun Tzu also has Japanese admirers as well, from the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate, Tokugawa Ieyasu, and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Nobunaga Oda's right-hand man. If you were a samurai or damiyo in feudal Japan, the book is a must-read. Sun Tzu's influence even found its way to America, as copies of his book are found in various military libraries for the continuing education of personnel in the art of war. So much so that Generals Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., and Colin Powell incorporated some of Sun Tzu's teachings and methods in the Gulf War of 1990, in regards to deception, speed, and attacking the enemy's weak points.
  • Sun Tzu is tight-lipped about his childhood, but what is known is that his military skills had drawn the attention of the ruler of Wu, King Helü, who hired him as his general following a demonstration of his leadership skills. That demonstration involved training the King's harem in military drills.
    • Sun Tzu himself had verified that the legend was true, and it serves as a prime example of what Sun Tzu can do. He split Helü's harem into two divisions and made Helü's two favorite concubines the company commanders. When they disobeyed his orders, he told Helü that if the order is given, but not obeyed, it's the soldier's fault. When the harem failed again to follow Sun Tzu's orders, he said that if the orders were clear and the soldier still disobeys, then it's their commander's fault. Sun Tzu then executed the two senior members of the harem and appointed two more concubines as commanders. Needless to say, the harem followed Sun Tzu's orders flawlessly, and while Helü was upset over the loss of his concubines, he hired Sun Tzu as his general.
  • It's said that Tywin Lannister had scrimped notes on The Art of War, alongside Machiavelli's The Prince. While Sun Tzu is honorable, even he knows that honor has no place in war, a lesson that House Stark learned the hard way. Sun Tzu just hopes that Jon Snow learns from the mistakes of his uncle and cousin.
  • Really, really hates Zapp Brannigan for ripping off his material. Ironically enough, Zapp's book is called The Big Book of War. Zapp is at least wise enough to make himself scarce whenever Sun Tzu is in the vicinity. That still doesn't stop him from calling Sun Tzu's treatise a fake, albeit from a very safe distance.
  • Met Niccolo Machiavelli when it was discovered that the defied Italian philosopher had written a book that was also titled The Art Of War. As it turns out Ezio Auditore is a fan of his work, as he claims that Sun Tzu was a Chinese Assassin. These rumors have yet to be claimed.
  • While he dislikes his laziness, Sun Tzu is friends with Shikamaru Nara. The shadow user is a frequent visitor to Sun Tzu's temple to discuss philosophy over several games of Shogi.
  • Would you believe that it was Johnny Cage, of all people, had turned his daughter and her team to the teachings of Sun Tzu, making them study his works? Even more so that Johnny himself studied The Art Of War extensively and incorporated some of his teachings into his life? Even Liu Kang, of all people, is flabbergasted at this revelation in regards to Johnny, even more so than Jax and Sonya once they both found out, and studying Sun Tzu is required in both the military and in the Shaolin.
  • Speaking of soldiers, The Soldier can be considered Sun Tzu's No.1 Fan. So much so that he occasionally recites The Art Of War by heart. The Scout finds it annoying.
  • Came to blows with Vlad the Impaler. He lost that match. Sun Tzu seeks a rematch. He also teamed up with Lao Tsu and Confucius in a rap battle against Voltaire, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Socrates. While he prefers to let his sword and tactics do the talking, Sun Tzu has no problem in spitting out hot lyrics, even going as far as to turn the Eastern Philosophers on one another.
  • Needless to say, Sabaton was very happy to hear he ascended, as they did make a Concept Album about his work.
  • Know your enemy and know yourself, find naught in fear for 100 battles. Know yourself but not your enemy, find level of loss and victory. Know thy enemy but not yourself, wallow in defeat every time.

    Wikipe-Tan and Trope-Tan 
Wikipe-Tan and Trope-tan, Co-Goddesses of Wikis
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wikipe-tan_by_amitie10g_2443.png
Wikipe-tan (by Amitie10g)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trope_0.png
  • Greater Goddesses, though their authority can extend to Overdeities
  • Symbol: The Wikipedia and TV Tropes logo
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral and Chaotic Good respectively
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Neutrality, Encyclopedias (Wikipe-Tan), Tropes, Fandoms (Trope-Tan), Knowledge, the Internet (both)
  • Followers: Tropers and Editors
  • Allies:
  • Special relationship with: Lain Iwakura (their "mother"), Jimmy Wales (Wikipe-tan's "father"), Historie, The Librarian (godparents)
  • Split on: Deadpool
  • Enemies:
  • Opposes: The Men in Black, every single Wiki Vandal out there
  • For thousands of years, mankind has sought to store information for future generations. It gave way to writing, to libraries and to the printing press. With the rise of the Internet, two new websites came into being; Wikipedia and TV Tropes. One to hold domain over as much of human knowledge as possible, the other to catalog the narrative tropes and techniques out there. Whether by their own or the whim of Dream, they manifested adorable forms as Wikipe-tan and Trope-tan.
    • Wikipe-tan and Trope-tan regard themselves as half-siblings. As the goddess of the Internet, they consider Lain their mother, while Wikipe-tan considers Jimmy Wales as her father. Both Historie and the Librarian serve as their godparents.
    • The Wiki Witch of the Web is officially an Evil Twin of Trope-tan, but most believe she is in fact all the evil of her removed.
  • Though both are dedicated to easy-access information, they're very different in personality. Wikipe-tan is blunt, dedicated to being as neutral as she can in information. Trope-tan, however, is far more relaxed and public about what she enjoys. Despite this, they're both incredibly close, with Trope-tan looking up to Wikipe-tan as a big sister.
  • Wikipe-tan has a lot of respect for Alexander the Great because of creating the Library of Alexandria, one of the greatest sources of information in history. Trope-Tan is a big fan of the Doctor, who she often tries to prove that half the gods are secret Time Lords. She also has gotten help from Darth Vader to make her Darth Wiki, and is grateful towards Buffy for being one of her first subjects.
    • Deadpool is a point of contention between the two of them. Trope-tan loves him, but Wikipe-tan is really annoyed when he breaks the fourth wall to edit and glorify his own profile.
  • To help with collecting information, they get along with Chuck Bartowski and Twilight Sparkle. As the more serious of the two, Wikipe-tan sides with The Machine and Houka Inumuta, and the more lax Trope-tan sides with Patrick Jane. You can usually see the former in the House of Prophecy with Destiny, currying favors so she may look on his book.
  • As the Anthropomorphic Personification of TV Tropes, Trope-tan could arguably be considered the true head of the Trope Pantheon, above even the Holy Trinity. While she can call favors from them, she isn't recognized as such because she didn't create the gods themselves.
    • Being a huge fan of Haruhi Suzumiya, most believe Trope-tan is the reason why she became part of the Holy Trinity as Goddess of Tropes.
  • Out of a necessity for their job, Wikipe-tan and Trope-tan have few enemies, but they do exist. Big Brother is hated by both for his utter perversion of records and history, and his overall For the Evulz anti-intellectualism is completely antithetical to what they represent. And as they personify websites, SKYNET and Arfoire pose a serious threat to them. As for individual foes:
    • Wikipe-tan detests Yuuki Terumi. One of the main issues she has to face off is trolls, due to the flame wars they incite damaging Wikipedia's reputation. She has also banned Gork and Mork as their Insane Troll Logic incites similar problems, and Frieza both for being a Wiki Vandal and blowing up her home planet.
    • Asides from her Evil Twin, the Anti-Monitor is someone Trope-tan has to look out for. Seeking to eliminate the very tropes that make up stories, Monty sees her as a Cosmic Keystone to the pantheon. Even if she's not, she has the potential to be and thus getting rid of her will help his omnicidal ambitions.

Intermediate Gods

    Grimoire Weiss 
Grimoire Weiss, God of Flying Books (Shiro, Hon Shiro)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Copy_of_Weiss_2_2397.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His front cover
  • Theme Song:
  • Alignment: True Neutral -> Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Flying Book, Sealed Verses, Exposition Fairy, Power Floats, Sounds Like Either A Grumpy Old Man or A Stuffy Brit, Awesome Ego, Insufferable Genius, Large Ham, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Only Known by Their Nickname, Noble Male To Father Nier's Roguish Male, Snarky Non-Human Sidekick, Unusually Uninteresting Sight, [[spoiler:Amnesiac Dissonance, Heroic Sacrifice
  • Domains: Books, Black Magic, Knowledge
  • Allies: Nier, Meteora Osterreich, Deckard Cain
  • Enemies: Nier's enemies mainly Devola and Popola.
  • Annoyed With: Navi, Fi
  • As soon as Nier as made it to the Pantheon, work was done to ascend Grimoire Weiss as well, the only one who can join him in the Pantheon without nullifying the sacrifice he made. Given the nature of what he is, it was decided that he take Flying Books, as there are literally no other contenders for it. And thankfully, due to how the Pantheon works, he no longer needs Grimoire Noir to exist to survive.
  • Grimoire Weiss is the source of Nier's magic, the Sealed Verses, and the one actually flinging the spells; Nier just directs them, though it can be assumed that Weiss can do it on his own.
  • Isn't treated with any more intrigue in the Pantheon any more than in the mortal realm. In the former case though, it's because there are much stranger things than a talking magical book like him.
  • A thousand years before Nier found him, Weiss was a nameless young man recruited by the Hamelin Organisation to fight the Legion. He was given medicine to withstand being turned, but it didn't make him immune to being infected with WCS, it just delayed the symptoms. After he was captured and imprisoned in a room with twelve other people, he had to watch how his childhood friend was killed and sucked into a book. The killer then disappeared too, and finally Weiss himself succumbed to the Gestalt process and his soul was sealed. From then on, he was only known as Grimoire Weiss.
  • Grimore Weiss took offense with the "twins" coming to meet him after what happened the last time they crossed paths, which left everyone in a worse place off than before. They vowed that in the Pantheon nothing like that will happen again, but it took Nier of all people to come to Devola and Popola's defense for his magical book companion to accept that.
    Weiss: They are now yesterday's news I suppose. Well, the twins should be able to provide the gods with some lovely music at least.
  • Like with Neir, Weiss is notified of the fate of the Earth they left behind; humanity has gone extinct due to Nier's actions, Emil got in war with aliens, androids went to war with their machines, they founded YoRHa, and a summary of the events of NieR: Automata was provided as well.
  • Gets along well with Meteora Osterreich and Deckard Cain as the three serve as providers of exposition to their allies, though like everybody else Weiss wouldn't stay for Deckard's stories for long.
    • As for Navi and Fi, Weiss finds them very annoying for traveler's companions, though he's a lot more forgiving towards the latter since she has improved herself lately.

  • Byleth is the child of Jeralt Reus Eisner, the famous "Blade Breaker", and also a member of his mercenary group. Their fearsome skills on the battlefield, combined with their lack of expression, gave birth to their epithet "The Ashen Demon". One night, they stumbled upon three young students who were being harassed by bandits, who they defeated without much issue. After dispatching the bandits, Byleth and Jeralt learned that the students they saved are actually the heirs to Fódlan's three major nations; Edelgard von Hresvelg of the Adrestian Empire, Dimitri Alexandre Blaiddyd of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus, and Claude von Riegan of the Leicester Alliance. Accompanying them back to their school, the Officer's Academy located in Garreg Mach Monastery, they were appointed by Archbishop Rhea to teach one of the three houses of the academy as a professor. They accepted, and spent the next year teaching their chosen house about combat, as well as bonding with them and the other faculty. Meanwhile, they have discovered that they have a strange girl named Sothis residing in their head, who granted them the power to halt and rewind time itself.
    • However, this school year was not going to be a smooth one, as strange incidents keep happening in and around the monastery such as a mysterious group known as "those who slither in the dark" conspiring and disguising themselves as members of the monastery, as well as a masked person called the Flame Emperor pursuing their own agenda while allying themselves with them. One month after Remire Village's destruction, Jeralt wound up getting killed by a member of the strange group disguised as a student, and Byleth, in a vengeful rage, pursued after his killer, only to be sealed into a dark dimension, which they managed to escape by fusing with Sothis. It was during this period they learned something very important about themselves; when they were born, Rhea extracted her mother's crest stone from Byleth's mother and implanted them into Byleth, resulting in them lacking a heartbeat and making them emotionally stunted. Jeralt, noticing this strange aberration, fled the monastery with Byleth in hand. When Rhea attempted to have Byleth sit on the throne in the Holy Tomb to bring back her mother, Edelgard aka the Flame Emperor stormed the area and announced her intention to start a war and revolutionize Fódlan. Byleth's path varies depending on their choices prior to this moment, but they all share these details; Byleth, during the Imperial assault on Garreg Mach Monastery, goes missing for five years, and awakens from their coma on the day before the Millennium Festival, reunited with their students, and with their influence, won the war plaguing Fódlan and ushering a new dawn for the continent.
  • One day, the Elysium Academy were posting job advertisements in hopes of hiring a new teacher for combat classes. One person took the notice, and applied for the job. When the Headmasters looked the new prospective teacher, they realized that they have heard of this teal-haired person before, and took them to the Court of the Gods. They identified them as Byleth, and granted them a position in the Pantheon as a deity so they have a place to stay within the divine realms. They also had mind-readers read their thoughts, revealing that they remember all possible paths they took on their journey.
  • Hailing from the Fire Emblem universe, it was inevitable that Byleth would encounter other deities from that universe.
    • As expected, Byleth has interacted with the other lords, avatars, and other heroic characters of the Fire Emblem world. Byleth has felt that they met some of these people before in another land, but couldn't clearly recall those moments. Nonetheless, they decided to forge bonds with them. Some of the closest bonds they have involve fellow avatars Robin and Corrin. As a side note, Byleth is able to switch genders like Robin and Corrin, and change their hair and eye colour between their regular colours and the colours bared when they fused with Sothis, though that's about the extent of their abilities. They related to Robin about being born and used as a vessel for a dragon god, although Robin was a host to the evil, world-sundering Grima, while Byleth was a host for the benevolent Sothis. Byleth and Corrin bonded over that their choices in choosing a side meant completely changing the course of many nations and having to fight potential allies, although Byleth is a bit envious of Corrin in that they could unite both of their families and keep almost everyone alive, while Corrin feels a bit sad that Byleth couldn't truly unite the three houses no matter what. The other lords appreciate Byleth for teaching their students to the best of their ability, with the students improving thanks to their guidance. They were a bit surprised to see Anna residing in the Pantheon, however she wasn't exactly the Anna they knew, just one of her many sisters. Still, Byleth does buy her wares from time to time.
    • The world's of Fire Emblem often have a population of dragon people named Manaketes, and Fódlan is no exception to this. However, Fódlan's dragons are a bit different than Manaketes. The Nabateans are an ancient race who used to rule the land until an unfortunate incident happened that resulted in Seiros fighting Nemesis on the Tailtean Plains. Like Manaketes, the Nabateans are able to shapeshift between a draconic form and a human form, and their physical features in human form include bright green hair and pointed ears. Unlike Manaketes, Nabateans can shapeshift without a dragonstone and seem to lack the dragon degeneration problem that the Manaketes share. Byleth has met a few Nabateans in their journey, notably Rhea, Seteth, and Flayn aka Seiros, Cichol, and Cethleann, as well as the Immovable and the Wind Caller, aka Indech and Macuil. Byleth, curious about the Manaketes, encountered the Manaketes of the Pantheon; Tiki, Fae, Ninian, Nowi, and Nah. They were intrigued by the Manaketes dragonstones, and enjoy listening about their stories. They find Tiki to be a bit similar to Flayn in that they've been hibernating for much of their lives to keep themselves safe. They were a bit flummoxed that Nowi was more immature than her own daughter Nah, though they understood when they learned about why they act that way. They were pleasantly surprised as Ninian's romance with Eliwood, and sometimes play with Fae. On the other side, they pity Duma, Mila, and Anankos for succumbing to their insanity, though they don't approve of Anankos falling to evil, destroying Valla, and trying to destroy both Hoshido and Nohr. They completely detest Grima for being unapolegetically destructive and evil as well as successfully ruining the world in one timeline.
    • Byleth ended up becoming enemies with Gharnef and Berkut, with Byleth expressing disapproval that all of the terrible things he did was because he was passed over for inheriting Aura, and Berkut feels repulsed when he heard about a commoner like Byleth instructing the heirs and nobles of the continent. However, they paused when they saw Arvis, and noticed a large amount of similarities the man shared with Edelgard; a cunning and powerful to-be ruler clad in red with good intentions, wishing to free the land of cooruption and injustice, with their horrible past experiences shaping them up to who they are today. However, they take a morally dubious path by siding with a shadowy clan who wishes to subjugate the land in their own image, with them eventually rising to the throne as a conqueror. Unfortunately, Arvis wasn't as lucky as Edelgard as while she could be pulled out of the darkness with her teacher's guidance and support, Arvis couldn't have the same luxury and was doomed to perish. Byleth expressed much pity for him, wondering if he could be a better man if things were more fortunate in his life.
  • As stated prior, Byleth works as a teacher at the Elysium Academy, where they teach students all about combat, such as weapons expertise, battle tactics, and much more. Thanks to Byleth's prior experience in both the battlefield and the classroom, they quickly grew accustomed to the job, and is an effective teacher. Byleth is grateful towards Chifuyu Orimura and Eikichi Onizuka for helping them ascend, and sometimes collaborates with them on certain occasions. They also get along with other deities in the House of Teachers, like Penny, Yoshinoya-sensei, Aikuro Mikisugi (stripping habits aside), Minerva McGonagall, and Izumi Curtis, being a bit relieved that there are much more teachers in the Academy rather than the minuscule amount of professors the Officers Academy had. Edna Krabappel reminds them of fellow professor Manuela, who's also a cynical professor with a drinking problem. Outside of the house, they befriended Cyrus Albright, a dedicated scholar and professor, and like them, also went inside a hidden tomb where he and his student's lives ended up in danger. Cyrus pities Byleth a bit in that Byleth and their students inevitably had to fight eachother on the battlefield after the Holy Tomb incident. They detest Agatha Truchbull for her cruel treatment of her students, wondering how a cruel person like her could ever hold such a position. They also dislike Baldi for resulting to violence whenever someone gets even one math question wrong.
  • Before working as a professor, Byleth was a mercenary employed in their father's group, and was noted for their ferocious fighting style while wearing a stoic expression on their face, earning themselves the title of "The Ashen Demon". Ever since they're employment at Garreg Mach Monastery, they have largely stopped their mercenary duties, though they aren't opposed to indulging in a few side missions. They sometimes hang around fellow mercenary Kiritsugu Emiya, and they were saddened to hear about the many misfortunes and tragedies he faced as he tried to become a "hero of justice". Kiritsugu, meanwhile is glad Byleth's spirit wasn't crushed by the many turbulent struggles they faced.
  • Because of Sothis residing in their mind, Byleth has the power known as the Divine Pulse, which allows them to control the flow of time by either pausing it or rewinding back to a previous point. While this power was exclusive to them in their world, there are a few deities in the Pantheon with such powers. Byleth bonded with Max Caulfield, Subaru Natsuki, and Frisk, who also have similar time-rewinding powers. Byleth was a bit spooked when they heard of how Subaru's Return by Death ability works and how he couldn't communicate this in his world, plus repeatedly dying over and over made him quite unhinged at times. Byleth was able to empathize with Max over her making difficult choices, including trying to save lives, with her powers. With Frisk, they took note that their determination is what allowed them to have the power to reset time, and are quite disapproving that Flowey used his reset power to screw around and do whatever he pleased out of boredom. On the other hand, they heavily dislike Dio Brando and Yoshikage Kira, as they used their time-stopping and time-rewinding ability for evil. They feel a bit conflicted on Homura Akemi, as while they understand that she suffered greatly in trapping herself in a time-loop to save Madoka, they're not very supportive of her overthrowing Madoka's godhood and becoming a devil-figure, understandable reasons aside.
  • For the longest time, Byleth had difficulty expressing their emotion due to Sothis slumbering inside them. It was only when Sothis awakened and they bonded with their students that they became more expressive and emotional. Byleth managed to get along with two other deities with emotional problems like Rei Ayanami and AUG. Byleth and Rei related to slowly becoming more emotional over time, as well as being an artificial clone of someone's mother made to further someone else's plan. With AUG, they related to not being able to cry due to their stoicism, although Byleth cried when they held their dying father in their arms, while the closest AUG can get to crying is crying out Tears of Blood. Ainz Ooal Gown also suffers from similar problems, as his existence as a lich means that his emotions get suppressed often, although Byleth doesn't hang around him much because of his Evil Overlord shtick, plus his minions' general distaste for humans bugging them out.
  • There is a somewhat unsettling truth to Byleth's existance; they were born to become Sothis' new vessel for her reincarnation, as Rhea planned so for Sothis to rule over Fodlan again as well as her greatly missing her mother ever since her murder by Nemesis happened many years ago. However, Sothis assuming full control of Byleth's body would likely mean the destruction of Byleth's self. Byleth has met other people in the Pantheon who were intended to become hosts of powerful godlike beings like Shulk, Leah, and Abigail Williams, although in their cases, the beings they were hosts to were in no way benevolent unlike Sothis. With Shulk, he was possessed by Zanza when he died near the Monado, and was used as his Soul Jar for his own machinations. With Leah, she was born to be a vessel to Diablo, and Abigail was constructed to be the host of Yog-Sothoth, with all the eldritch powers it entails. Byleth is rather spooked that these people were possessed by much more malevolent beings, and felt grateful that Sothis is largely benevolent. They confided to them that they will oppose those beings whenever they threaten the world.
  • As Byleth had to face off against the machinations of "those who slither in the dark", a shadowy conspiracy made up of the vengeful remnants of the Agarthans, they are opposed to many similar conspiracy movements, organizations, and members in the Pantheon. The Illuminati happened to be a rather obvious enemy, being one of the most infamous conspiratory organizations in the world. Kell Lorenz of SEELE is also a target, with his goal of Intrumentality being something Byleth opposes. The Silencerz triggered some feelings of uncomfortable familiarity, as they are a covert organization who regularly sabotage others for their shadowy goals, plus the Racing Drones being advanced technology from ages past which was banished away for being too powerful reminded them of the Agarthan's advanced technology. Akatsuki are also similar, with having spies over the world and plans to Take Over the World, much like "those who slither in the dark" use spies to gain information and to wrestle control of Fódlan from the three nations grasp. Yuu and the rest of Da'ath have taken an interest in Byleth, as their existence as a reincarnation of the Goddess Sothis is somewhat similar their plans to create a better humanity by infecting certain people with a special virus, with Mana Ouma being a key example. Byleth wants nothing to do with Yuu, much less become their guinea pig/puppet for their plans, plus finds Mana to be rather creepy. Of course, some of these groups are much trickier to combat given their scope, buut Byleth still makes their dislike known about them.
  • There were plenty of people in the Pantheon that reminded Byleth of the people they knew in Fódlan. Daenerys Targaryen and Lelouch Lamperouge heavily reminded them of Edelgard, as they happen to be rulers of a nation who eventually rebel against the status quo, desiring to destroy it and build a better one from the ashes while pursuing morally dubious actions to further their goals. Lelouch's associate, C.C., also happens to resemble Sothis a bit, being mysterious green haired girls who bestow someone with great power. Copen Kamizono feels like an amalgamation of Edelgard and Dimitri, having the former's color-scheme and extreme goals to change the world, not willing to turn back because they believe it's far too late to do so, and the latter's overwhelming desire for revenge and obsession with honoring and avenging their father's death, while committing multiple violent acts. Byleth finds him unsettling as he's even more ruthless and violent than the both of them, driven purely by his rage and desire for vengeance. They find Yuri Lowell to be rather similar to Yuri Leclerc, the purple haired, pragmatic, sarcastic leader of the Ashen Wolves, with them managing to hold good relations with the vigilante. They also think Amane Nishiki to be rather similar to Yuri in the physical sense with their lavender hair, red eyeliner and pretty looks, though their personalities are quite different. They find S.E.E.S, the Invesstigation Team, and the Phantom Thieves of Hearts to have resemblances to the three houses they taught, with their motivations and actions matching closely with the three leaders; S.E.E.S and Dimitri confronting tragic events in the past and moving on to the bright future, the Investigation Team and Claude seeking out the truth through the lies, and the phantom Thieves and Edelgard fighting against a corrupt status quo through morally ambiguous means. The three groups like Byleth's presence, and consider them to be a sensei of sorts.
  • One day in a bar, Byleth overheard someone drunkenly slurring about a man with an incredibly familiar name, his great accomplishments, and that he's nearby. Believing that their father had arrived in the Pantheon, Byleth hurriedly ran outside... only to encounter a white-haired man covered in scars named Geralt of Rivia. That meeting was a very awkward one, to put it simply. While he also is a great mercenary and tries to be a good father, that's where the similarities with Jeralt end. While Byleth doesn't really mind him, they do feel a bit awkward around him, partly because of that first meeting.
  • On their free time, Byleth likes to go to the Houses of Aquatic Life and Water and Moisture to fish. Whatever fish they catch, from a common, run-of-the-mill fish to an incredibly rare one, they keep and use for meals. They bonded with fellow fishing enthusiasts like Gon Freeccs, Big the Cat, and the Villager and sometimes compete on who can catch the most impressive fish, and sometimes find Froggy for Big whenever he goes missing.
    • Speaking of food, Byleth also visits the House of Food to prepare and eat meals. They have quite the voracious appetite, being able to eat multiple meals in a day. They also enjoy drinking tea with others, which resulted in them becoming friends with fellow tea lovers like Iroh and Alice of the Blood Team, and so they tend to drink tea together.
    • Another thing that Byleth does is pick up any object a deity carelessly dropped, and then try to find the rightful owner by asking pretty much everyone they can see if they are the owner of the item. Due to their strange obsession with returning lost items, it's become a semi-common sight in the Pantheon to see Byleth sprint around and ask everyone in the area about dropped items.
  • Byleth is one of the many candidates chosen to attend the fifth Smash Bros. tournament, and they also brought in their students' Hero Relics (Amyr, Areadbhar, Failnaught) with them as additional weapons, as Sothis gifted them these weapons, noticing the sizable chunk of swordsmen in the roster. Bizarrely, when they exited the void, they were seen flying across the sky, which made some deities wonder if how exactly they did that. Even Byleth doesn't know how they could fly on that day, but they don't dwell on that too much. As with every other participant of the tournament and every person turned into a spirit, they hate Galeem and Dharkon for their actions, and will point their sword at them should they try to sunder the universe again.
  • It takes a lot to get Byleth angry. But when they do, it is not pretty.
  • Can also be found in Time Periods.
Each battle is a chance to grow.

    Houka Inumuta 
Houka Inumuta, God of Data Collecting (Information and Strategy Committee Chairman, Doggie)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/houka_inumuta_anime.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His pad
  • Theme Song: the first half of InuKa3L
  • Alignment: True Neutral (Initially pretended to be Lawful Evil)
  • Portfolio: Don't Touch His Computer, Hacking Things Just Because, Mission Control, Quiet and Cold Glasses Wearer, Teen Genius, Explaining Things
  • Domain: Technology, Science, Costumes
  • Undying Loyalty: Satsuki Kiryuin
  • Allies: Ira Gamagoori, Nonon Jakuzure, Uzu Sanageyama, Ryuko Matoi and Senketsu, Mako Mankanshoku, Mikisugi Aikuro, Peter Parker, Reed Richards, Tails, Dexter, Donatello, Team TRY Fighters
  • Partners: Rarity
  • Rival: Ryoma Sengoku
  • Enemies: Nui Harime, Ragyo Kiryuin, Quan Chi, Dio Brando
  • Ascended for his ability to collect data from battle and implement the info to better enhance the Goku Uniform for battle.
  • Just like Uzu Sanageyama, Houka was ashamed that he was unable to ascend earlier to save Satsuki Kiryuin from GUAE. He vows to do better and, to atone, has been trying to hack through the GUAE computer systems.
  • Whatever you do, don't touch his computer. It doesn't matter who you are, he will kill you.
  • Has been know to visit the House of Combat. Not to fight, since he is actually sort of hopeless without a Goku Uniform, but to collect data on those who DO fight.
  • Many in the House of Technology have considered Houka as their spirit animal because of his fierce attitude for his computers.
  • Because Houka uses the data he collects so that Goku Uniforms can be improved more efficiently, this makes him a rival of sorts towards Ryoma Sengoku, who does a fair bit of data-collecting for much the same purpose in regards to the Drivers he builds.
    • Is for this reason he is helping Dexter and Tony Stark reverse engineer the things Sengoku made, Lockseeds and the Sengoku Driver.
  • Was impressed with Rarity's ability to not just recreate Senketsu, but improve him. He is partnering with her to create better uniforms for the rest of the Elite Four.
  • Considered the weakest member of the Elite Four and isn't much of a fighter without a Goku uniform. And even then, he was easily defeated by Ryuko and Senketsu. Because of this, he mostly stands in the back, putting his fearsoe supporting skills to good use.
  • Was perplexed when he found out that many think he and Nonon Jakuzure would make a cute couple. He personally doesn't get it. Especially since the data doesn't add up.
  • Many deities are divided on what Houka's third Probe Regalia reminds them of. It's either Spider-Man, a Kamen Rider, or Greninja. Many support the first since his moves do remind them of Peter.
  • Once framed his police chief father and got him fired, because he was getting too close to REVOCS dark secrets and he didn't want him to get hurt. He did leave evidence so he could get reinstated to the force.

Demigods

    Patrick Jane 
Patrick Jane, God of Analysation
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pj_5196.gif
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A red-colored drawn face
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Knowledge of Human Behavior, Magician Detectives, Batman Gambit, Superhuman Deductive Skills, Photographic Memory, Bavarian Fire Drills, Jerks With Genuine Acts of Kindness, Brutal Honesty, Crusading Widowers, Byronic Heroes, Badasses in Nice Suits, Chessmasters, Showy Invincible Heroes, Trickery, Social Experts
  • Domains: Knowledge, Trickery, Good, Rune
  • Followers: Misaki, Ryosuke Takahashi, The Midknighter, Kyle and Jesse
  • Allies: Sherlock Holmes, Bruce Wayne/Batman, Hercule Poirot, Raiden (Metal Gear), All good deities in the House of Justice
  • Rivals: Shawn Spencer
  • Enemies: Grand Admiral Thrawn, David Xanatos
  • Opposes: Professor Moriarty, Revolver Ocelot
  • Pities: John Luther, Afro Samurai
  • Rumor has it that he managed to make it into the Pantheon by beating the Sandman in a simple game of rock-paper-scissors. Done a hundred times. Jane claimed he could beat him every time... and succeeded. Whether or not this actually happened (or if the Sandman was even trying to win) is up to debate.
    • He had to change his title as there was too much overlap between followers. Jane eventually focused on his incredible ability to reconstruct a crime scene by merely analysing the area.
  • His rivalry with Phony Psychic Shawn Spencer is the stuff of legends. Jane can't help but chide Shawn for still pretending to be a psychic, while Shawn gets tired of his lecturing and wishes he could loosen up. The two make a monstrous team together; it's just that the two can't stand each other. The infighting extends to their followers, claiming one show to be superior to the other. Even their creators have chimed in on presenting their show as superior over the other. As of right now it's hard to tell; Psych lasted longer and has more seasons, but the Mentalist has more episodes under its belt.
  • Much of his time in the Pantheon has been spent tracking down Red John, the psychopath that killed his family. In the end, he finally met face-to-face, avenging his wife and child by killing the man. Not everyone approved the outcome, though. The result soured his relationship with Batman. Things thawed eventually as Jane sympathizes with a man who also lost his entire family, though the Caped Crusader is quick to bring up the subject every now and then.
    • By extension, this pits him in direct opposition with Moriarty, second only to Holmes in his hatred of the criminal mastermind. He hopes to end his life as well so that no one else would suffer as he did.
    • Not that far from the top of his shit-list, Revolver Ocelot have been a constant target of Jane's followers. The God of Treacherous Advisors was initial amused that Patrick Jane has any sort of capabilities to stop him. That is until a meetup proved that Patrick Jane had a mean right hook. Nowadays, the two engage in intense mind games to best the other.
    • Until he finally got his revenge, he turned to revenge-based gods for strength in his search for Red John. That ended with his death, but still pays respect to them. Jane is especially sympathetic towards Afro Samurai, a god who must continue his cycle of revenge to keep his rank. Jane only hopes that the man finally finds peace.
  • Thrawn is another on his enemy list, as the two are evenly match when predicting the movements of their opponents.
  • Very few people are as good at scanning his environment, but Holmes may have him beat in that department. Their relationship may turn from congenial to snarky depending on the version of Holmes that appears to him.
  • Is one of the few deities that is delighted in deciphering Poirot's manner of speech. The God of Variable language admits that Jane is a quick learner.
  • Has taken up the challenge of bringing down Xanatos' operations. This has been a difficult task; for every scheme he has foiled, Xanatos merely moves on to various other backup plans.
  • Although his temple resides in the House of Knowledge, he spends much of his time in the House of Justice, more than most detectives in the Pantheon. That's because he can't help but feel at home. Of course, he can be hard to work with at times.
    • As much as he gives many in the House of Justice a hard time, he doesn't give that treatment to John Luther. Jane felt about going great lengths to catch his killer.

  • No one is quite sure how he discovered its location, but he is said to have found his way into the Pantheon one day whilst following a lead in the middle of a particularly interesting case. After demonstrating his famous powers of observation and deduction on a number of deities, he was offered a position as a deity in the Pantheon. The offer more than suited Holmes' ego, and he agreed, albeit on the condition that his friend and colleague, Dr. Watson, also be given a spot as well.
  • A very famous resident in the Pantheon, Sherlock Holmes' reputation as a detective is legendary, both inside and outside the confines of the Pantheon. Holmes may not have been the first detective, but he is almost undoubtedly one of the most influential ones, well-known for his use of scientific and forensic techniques (most of which he himself pioneered) to solve difficult crimes at a time long before such methods were common.
    • As little is definitively known about the great detective's personal history, it is something of a game for some deities to gather and swap theories and conjecture on the subject. Among such ideas that have arisen from this is that he has a second brother older than Mycroft named Sherrinford Holmes, or that his father's name is Siger (based off the assumed name Holmes took after he faked his death, "Sigerson", which literally means "son of Siger"). Holmes himself has so far been unwilling to confirm or deny any of these ideas or others like it, and he is uncomfortable with prolonged discussion into the subject. All that he's willing to confirm personally is what is publicly known through his friend's writings: for example, that he was born in 1854 (he refuses to give the day and month), that his ancestors were country squires, and that his grandmother is the sister of a famous French painter named Vernet (he refuses to specify which one).
  • Repeatedly insists that the deerstalker should not be his symbol, and claims to have rarely worn one. As a result of its ongoing association with him, is frequently heard to bemoan his decision to let Dr. Watson chronicle his exploits, and is frequently heard to curse "that damned artist!"
  • Has developed something of a feud with Gregory House, considering the doctor's methods to be an amateurish substitute for his own. House has responded with a war of practical jokes.
  • Has taken to indoor target practice in the Library, shooting a copy of Queen Victoria's initials on the wall next to a fireplace. This irks Yomiko and the other patrons of the Library considerably.
  • Frequently consults with those from the House of Justice when a particularly complex matter comes before them; however, he is more interested in solving complex mysteries than bringing the guilty parties to justice, and has been known to let a guilty party go free if he is sufficiently convinced that their motives are sympathetic and their reasons for crime not without merit.
  • Along with Erwin Rommel, Robert E. Lee, Hannibal Barca, and Alexander the Great, Holmes is Thrawn's father. Holmes is a little disturbed by that factoid. He'd like to think that he would actually remember an orgy like that.
  • Sherlock has a very strained relationship with his "Father", Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. While Sherlock proved to be the most successful of the man's creations, Doyle began to loathe just how popular Sherlock was becoming even once uttering "If in 100 years I am only known as the creator of Sherlock Holmes, then I will have deemed my life a failure." Sherlock always ignores the question when asked about this statement or Conan Doyle.
  • It has come to everyone's attention that he may have investigated crimes in Meiji-era Japan alongside the Japanese ancestor of Phoenix Wright, God of Crusading Lawyers. It's hard to say if this is true or not because the stories depict Holmes being accompanied by 8-year-old Iris Watson instead of John. Neither Holmes nor Wright commented on this story.
    • As it turned out, Holmes never visited Japan. Rather, Wright's ancestor visited London to study law, meeting Holmes along the way. Furthermore, the adventure of Wright's ancestor began with being accused of being John Watson's murderer, and Iris was John's daughter... or she thought she was. Also muddling things that is the Japanese version of the story, as the English version states it was Herlock Sholmes that worked with Wright's ancestor.
  • Become bored one afternoon and deducted the secret identities of everyone in the Pantheon with a secret identity. All Batman had to say on this was that he had a sneaking suspicion that he had deducted the Dark Knight's when the two crossed paths.
  • Former NEC mascot Johnny Turbo has nothing but utmost respect for Sherlock Holmes for his FMV based video game headlining the Turbo CD game console, but Holmes finds him annoying and prefers to stay at arms length from him.
  • Even if he's from way before comics were a thing, has been seen around some superheroes. From the DC side there's Batman, "The World's Greatest Detective" who's even met Holmes once. From Marvel, he has bonded with Tony Stark and Doctor Strange, whose avatars have both played Holmes.

  • Jonas is a young pre-teen boy living in an isolated town known as the Community, a place where everyone's lifelong job is decided by a commitee of elders and repeated trangressions are dealt with the rule-breaker being "Released to Elsewhere". He is anxious to know what role he will be assigned, as he will attend the Ceremony of Twelve, where all children who turn twelve will receive their lifelong jobs. During the ceremony, he is singled out as he is to receive a very important job; the Receiver of Memory. He meets the Giver of Memories, who was once a Receiver like him, and begins his special training which he must keep a secret from his friends and family. It turns out that his role is to hold all the memories that the people of the Community discarded to create their perfect utopia, such as colour, animals, war, emotion, free will, love, and music. As Jonas furthers his training, he grows increasingly detached from his family and peers, as he knows what they don't. He learned of the Givers previous apprentice and daughter Rosemary, who let herself be released as she couldn't handle the memories she has been given. Eventually, his family is given an infant boy named Gabriel to take care of. However, due to Gabriel's weak constitution, they are considering release for him. Jonas is horrified to learn what being "Released to Elsewhere" actually means; government execution by lethal injection. Jonas and the Giver agree to a plan to have Jonas flee the Community, letting the memories flood back to the people and the Giver will stay behind to help them cope. However, the plan goes a bit off the rails due to Jonas learning that Gabriel will be released the following morning, prompting him to escape with Gabriel in tow. Their escape is fraught with danger, and their ultimate fates are left unknown.
  • A blizzard was raging within the Hall of Ice and Cold, and Mei-Ling Zhou was trekking across the frozen landscape for her research. Suddenly, she spotted a collapsed person in the distance, and quickly ran to approach them. To her horror, she saw that the figure was an unconscious pre-teen boy clutching an infant in his arms, both nearby a turned over sled and suffering from hypothermia. She quickly called an emergency helicopter to carry them to the House of Health and Diseases. It was thanks to Mei's quick thinking that the two managed to recover back to full health. When Jonas woke up in an unfamiliar hospital and that Gabriel was missing, he panicked, at which the nurses and doctors assigned to him explained that he's currently in a place called the Trope Pantheons, and Gabriel is being taken care of in another room and is recovering smoothly. When asked about what happened before his discovery, he told them about what he experienced in the Community and that he tried to escape with Gabriel in two to prevent him from being "released". When Jonas and Gabriel were discharged from the hospital, Jonas was given the title of Holy Protector of Lost Common Knowledge as a way to give him and Gabriel a new place to stay, as well as allowing Jonas to become Gabriel's legal guardian. Jonas, though unsure of his new surroundings, nonetheless will start a new life within the Pantheon.
  • Living in the Pantheon was quite overwhelming for Jonas initially, for it contains many aspects that the Community lacks. Colour, animals, war, emotion, free will, love, and music... all of these aspects permeate every corner of the Pantheon, and the people who live in the Pantheon are very unique individuals rather than the uniform, emotionally suppressed people of the Community. In the end, he appreciates that he is able to truly experience these once foreign things in the flesh instead of relying on his memories, and has made sure to let Gabriel experience them too. He deeply respects the Houses that represent those aspects, though it's more of a begrudging sort for the House of War due to the horrors those conflicts bring, but he knows that the memories of war can help people remember their mistakes and try to better themselves in the future. He tends to make visits to these Houses to learn more about the things that the Community derived itself of. Even so, he is concerned with the state of the Community; how are they faring, now that he has vanished from the place entirely? He doesn't know how they potentially handled the memories if they came back to them at all, and the uncertainty frightens him.
  • In the Community, there is one value that is practiced and believed in fervently; Sameness. The Community is heavily regulated so that a perfect, orderly utopia can exist and people can live without any strife in their lives. Concepts like the colour, strong emotions, music, and the ability to choose have been heavily suppressed or outright eliminated from the populace, and knowledge of other concepts like war, death, suffering, and animals are known only to the Givers and Receivers of Memory. While Jonas is no longer living in such a place now, he has gained knowledge of those who wish to impose such extreme orderliness onto others. The Grand United Alliance of Law is dedicated to bringing total law and order to the Pantheon, of which Jonas was disturbed to find out that much of the leadership is consisted of those who are obsessed with subjugating others to their will and stamping out free will. YHVH and IT in particular unnerve him greatly due to the former's massive ego and contempt for others and the latter's ability to mind control others into acting in repetitive, uniform ways. Nerose Satanael also creeps him out in how he bended the entire universe to his will, creating a sinless utopia at the cost of free will. Upon hearing about the Community, Nerose is impressed how ordinary humans managed to get close to a sinless society. Another figure he dislikes is Horde Prime, who aims to control or destroy the entire cosmos and subjugate them to his empire, with everyone under his control being a part of a Hive Mind giving him troubled thoughts. The uniformed synchronicity of the Delightful Children send chills down his spine, as they are like the doctrine of Sameness brought to its logical conclusion by acting like one person. On the other hand, he was initially cautious of Starlight Glimmer due to her being the leader of the anti-Cutie Mark "Our Town", but realized that she has left those days behind and worked to reform for her actions, which made him warm up to her and become good, if awkward acquaintances. Hearing of the Community made Starlight rather embarrassed and mortified in that it reminded her of her darkest days and gave her unsettling knowledge that there are people out there like her past self.
  • The Community may look like an ideal place to live, but its utopian facade belies its true oppressive dystopian nature, where basic freedoms are stamped out in the name of a harmonious lifestyle and repeated transgressions are punished by death. It wouldn't take long for Jonas to meet up with others who lived in dystopian societies, namely Winston Smith, Julia, Offred, Guy Montag, and Katniss Everdeen. As he listened to each of their stories, he grew more and more horrified by their more blatantly oppressive societies, where mass surveillance, discrimination, censorship, and tortures are carried out by uncaring, tyrannical governments. The group also heard of Jonas' tale, and expressed much sympathy for his plights. Katniss is particular has begun to teach Jonas how to hunt and defend himself, as he was quite underprepared to survive in the wilderness during his escape. He was mortified to find out that those who perpetuate those systems, like O'Brien, Big Brother and Captain Beatty are present within the Pantheon, and he has made it clear that he will continue to oppose them for as long as they continue their oppression. He finds the Sybil System to be too uncomfortably familiar, as they monitor people's emotional and mental states, and often the punishment for excessive stress is death.
  • All Jonas ever knew in his life prior to his twelveth birthday was life within the Community. An isolated settlement, it has little contact with other towns and no one is allowed outside the town borders. He only truly crossed the borders when he fled away with Gabriel in tow. The psychic teenagers of Group 1 can relate to his circumstances, as they also grew up in an isolated community that appears idyllic on the surface, but hides many ugly secrets. Jonas is glad to find more people who can relate to his predicaments, but was rather disheartened to learn about the terrible fates that some of them suffered. They grew mutually interested in their powers, with Jonas being in awe of their psychic abilities and Group 1 being curious of Jonas' memory transfer powers. Truman Burbank also lived in Seahaven Island his whole life, unaware that he was living in a reality TV show his whole life until he was 30 years old. Jonas was horrified to hear of how his entire life was a lie, but was glad that he finally managed to escape into the real world. Likewise, Eren Yeager grew up within the Walls that keep the man-eating Titans out, and longed to go out the walls and experience true freedom. While Jonas did sympathize with him, knowledge of Eren's increasingly drastic and destructive actions in pursuit of his goals made Jonas incredibly uncomfortable with him, so he keeps his distance.
  • The position of the Receiver of Memory has been passed down ever since the Community's founding, with the former Receiver (now referred as the Giver) gradually transferring their memories into the Receiver and informing them of the truth of the Community and their role. This power transfer ritual is similar to a peculiar Quirk named One for All, where the current wielder can pass on the Quirk to someone else, becoming stronger with each passing holder. It has been passed down many generations ever since the dawn of Quirks, with the newest holder, Izuku Midoriya being trained under the previous wielder, the number one hero All Might. Jonas and Izuku know how much responsibility those positions carry, and bonded over their shared struggles. Jonas was in awe of Izuku's power and steadfast determination and was humbled to meet All Might in the flesh, while Izuku and All Might felt sympathy for Jonas due to learning many uncomfortable truths about his hometown, but were glad that he decided to take his destiny in his own hands.
  • Jonas was not the first Receiver for the current Giver; his daughter Rosemary was to be the Receiver of Memory. However, she could not handle the emotional strain of holding such painful memories and chose to commit suicide by letting herself undergo Release, which made her memories enter the minds of the populace. It is now forbidden for almost everyone to mention her and her name ever again, and future Givers and Receivers cannot apply for Release. The Giver was devastated by her loss, but he began to regain his hope when Jonas became his apprentice. It wasn't long before he bumped into Rey, who also served a similar role to him. Luke Skywalker fell into a depressive slump after his attempt to mentor his nephew Ben Solo failed and he turned to the dark side, only finding hope as he took Rey in as his student. Rey and Jonas mutually respect each other for their strong wills, with Jonas admiring her strength and Rey advising him to stay strong.
  • The position of the Giver and Receiver is an odd one; every holder has the ability to transfer memories to anyone they wish through touch, and they are entrusted to keep passing down these memories through successive generations as living databases. These memories are the last remnants of life before Sameness, so keeping them preserved is top priority. If a Giver or Receiver dies unexpectedly, the memories that have stored will be transferred to the populace, which will cause a massive panic as the people of the Community are completely unequipped to deal with the sudden flood of unknown memories and emotions. There happened to be another Deity whose memories make him coveted; SCP-073, whose long life and photographic memory makes him a perfect repository and fountain of information. Jonas finds the man to be a relaxing presence, though he was surprised when he saw his rot abilities for the first time. He was absolutely horrified to hear how Szilard Quates devours his fellow immortals to obtain their memories, and fears that Szilard would try to eat him too if he ever found out about his memories, so he stays far away from the man whenever possible. Of all possible abilities and powers in the Pantheon, he's most fearful of those who are able to manipulate, remove, and insert false memories in others. He was hesitant upon meeting Namine knowing about her memory-altering powers, but warmed up to her upon her informing him that he never uses her powers maliciously, and that she was forced by Organization XIII to use them to harm Sora. Blackiris and La were also those he was initially suspicious of, but warmed up when he found the truth of Blackiris' and La's Mnemonicide powers: to use them to cure those with the Dolor, a condition that drives the infected to a deep depression. On the other hand, he's very nervous when it comes to Shukuro Tsukishima, knowing that his ability to insert himself in others memories can seriously harm his memories which can cause untold consequences for the Community. Death Phantom is also one he's mortified about, as his powerful Mind Manipulation abilities allow him to turn anyone into his minion, adding in his goal to destroy the universe and his hatred of everything making him more unsettling to Jonas.
  • The memories that are passed down by Givers to Receivers are incredibly important, for they contain everything that the Community abandoned to create their utopia. As such, it is forbidden to share the memories with others as not only will it destabilize life in the Community, but also cause severe emotional distress in those who aren't prepared for the strain, thus it is important to train the Receiver so they can handle the memories and understand their significance. Hermaeus Mora also happens to be a keeper of forbidden knowledge, of which many are quite eldritch and mind-shattering to the average mortal. One near-death experience with one of his tentacles when he accidentally got too close to Apocrypha made Jonas afraid of the Daedric Prince ever since, especially since he knows that gleaming at one of the many books he owns would drive him to madness. Hermaeus Mora on the other hand is rather intrigued by Jonas and his memory transfer abilities, and ponders on how he can obtain them to add to his archive.
  • Running away from home is a though choice, especially when lives are on the line. Initially, the plan was for Jonas to fake his death and escape the Community while his memories flood back to the Community, with the Giver staying to help them cope. The plan was derailed when Jonas heard that his bother Gabriel will be released the next day, prompting him to take him along with his escape attempt. Some others in the Pantheon also ran away from their dystopian homes: Artyom was exiled from post-apocalyptic Moscow due to learning information about a major government conspiracy, and the Octolings left their militarized, propaganda-drenched lives behind to live at Inkopolis after Agent 1's victory against DJ Octavio. Jonas was horrified to hear about Artyom's situation, due to how hostile and dangerous his world is, while Artyom respects and pities him for what he went through. Jonas tried out a few Turf War matches, of which he had a hard time adjusting to the chaotic splatting, but appreciated the Octolings who taught him how to play.
  • Some time after Jonas arrived to the Pantheon, the prophets at the House of Prophecy received visions of Jonas' future: He would go on to forge his own small civilization named the Village and appoint himself as the Leader, where he uses his powers to "see beyond" to give people their roles in the community and "real names" based on their occupations. The Village is a genuinely nice place to live, a safe haven for the lost and broken, where everyone genuinely fits their assigned posts. He later gets married to a woman named Kira and meets Claire, the birthmother of Gabriel. The prophets are unsure if the visions they received will come true, especially as it seems that those sequence of events happened in a world where Jonas never entered the Pantheon and Jonas is currently a permanent resident of the realm. While Jonas is unaware of their discovery, he has a nagging feeling that he and Gabriel will one day return to their world and continue their journey.
