Intermediate Gods

    Dex-Starr 
With blood and rage of crimson red

Ripped from a corpse so freshly dead

Together with our hellish hate

We'll burn you all—that is your fate!

Dex-Starr, God of Abandoned Pets in a Box (originally Dexter, Red Lantern of Space Sector 2814, Rage Cat, Ruffles, Pukecat)

    The Metroid Hatchling 
The Metroid Hatchling, The Divine Rescuing Beast (The Last Metroid, The Baby, Super Metroid, The Hatchling, Metroid Larva, Infant Metroid)

  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Itself
  • Theme Song: Metroid Hatchling Theme
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Big Damn Hero, Heroic Sacrifice, Implacable Man, Insect Queen, Last of His Kind
  • Domain: Aliens, Power, Races
  • Allies: Samus Aran (It's adoptive mother), Pikachu, Nana
  • Rival: Zinogre
  • Enemies: Mother Brain, Ridley, Phazon, SA-X, Dark Samus, HYDRA
  • Oppose: Ice users
  • Assigned with exterminating the entire Metroid race from their home world, SR388, Samus Aran decided to not kill a newly hatched Metroid who imprinted itself on her. This act of kindness would be awarded as a now Super Metroid would save Samus from Mother Brain and sacrifice itself.
    • That wouldn't be the last time it would help Samus. After being affected by an X Parasite, cells from the Hatchling were used on Samus to save her life.
  • Many in the pantheon were in utter shock when they saw a giant Metroid entering the pantheon. Before any retaliation could be taken, the Hatchling approached a confused Samus and nuzzled her in affection. It was at that moment everybody knew it was The Baby they heard so much about.
  • The Hatchling's size varies; most times it's the size of a Mini-Mecha, other times it's a slightly bigger Metroid.
  • Samus Aran is very protective of the Metroid. Maybe not to the point of calling it "the baby" every five seconds. But her Mama Bear instincts will kick in if it was ever harmed. Just ask Ridley and Mother Brain.
    • She is allowing some research on the baby Metroid from GUAG after it was revealed it can actually heal people and not just suck out their life. She is however keeping a watchful eye since Galactic Federation did clone metroids from the Hatchling.
  • HYDRA seems to show some interest in Hatchling. Clearly, they too have vapors for brains.
  • When not with Samus, the Hatchling can be seen hanging around the Diclonius, Nana. Since the two are considered the least hostile of a very dangerous race and have been used by others for nefarious means, it makes perfect sense.
    • It also found companionship with Pikachu as he too is friends with Samus. The Pokémon was also saved by the Bounty Hunter one time.
  • Analyzing the Metroid has revealed it to be a Queen. Yes, the Federation cloned a Queen. After some tinkering, it's been sterilized so there wouldn't be any chances of an overrun of metroids.
  • The GUAG have developed a alternate energy substitute for the Hatchlinng to feed on. Unfortunately, the baby still has the tendacy to latch onto others for energies. Luckily, most of them are evil.
  • Has been use as "violence deterrent" in the House of Beasts because of its energy-draining ability. One noticeable case was a confrontation between it and Zinogre. The encounter has created a rivalry between the two creatures.
  • The SA-X is being very careful around the Hatchling since Metroids were created by the Chozo to destroy X Parasites.
    • As a matter of fact, the Metroids are supposed to be on the side of good, being the X Parasites' predators. But, because they eventually turned against their their Chozo creators (who never had the chance to tell anybody about the Metroids' true purpose), they've been commonly regarded as evil. This hatchling is seen as the exception, proving that Metroids are not inherently monsters.

  • Yoshi is species of bipedal dinosaur that exhibit a surprising amount of sapience and intelligence to the point where they've managed to form a community of their own in two islands, one called Dinosaur Island and another called Yoshi's Island. The Yoshi's happen to be a benevolent and hospitable race who live peacefully in their homes, tending to their habitats and looking after one another. They've also displayed courage and heroism at various points, having stopped many enemies from threatening their lands, and as it turns out, the Yoshis have a historical relationship with the Mushroom Kingdom's greatest hero, Mario. It was the Yoshis that found Mario as a baby when he was dropped from the sky while his brother, Luigi was kidnapped by the mage, Kamek, to be delivered by Bowser as a new playmate. The Yoshis decided to take Mario along and go on a long adventure to save his brother and defeat Kamek and Bowser's forces, eventually being successful in getting the brothers reunited with one another. Though this was only the first of their many stories together, as when he came of age, Mario has been a consistent ally with the Yoshis, allying with one another to battle against Bowser and various other villains who threaten the Mushroom World, and their relationship has since been among the strongest any ally could have with one another.
  • The Pantheon has strongly recognized the Yoshis ever since Mario ascended himself, shortly followed by Luigi and their friends and allies, the Yoshis included. The race as a whole is represented by one member, who is green, their most common and well-known colour shade, and who has been the most frequent in travelling along in Mario's adventures. This particular Yoshi has showcased his heroism several times, being more than willing to defend Yoshi's Island and the Mushroom Kingdom, even in situations where Mario is absent. As a result, this Yoshi is very well-known and is seen as a figure to look up to in the Mushroom Kingdom as well as many others, including other sidekicks and dinosaurs. Though there has been a common confusion made up where this Yoshi is the only one in the Pantheon. That's not really the case as it's more the entire race that's ascended, the green one happens to be a mascot to represent the race as a whole, all the way down to including different invites that invite beings from his world. As a further indication, the main Yoshi in the Pantheon is said to be one of the Seven Star Children, and the youngest, so in addition to being Mario's best friend and most loyal traveling companion, he's also destined to be one of the Mushroom Kingdom's most influential figures and it's best heroes.
  • The Yoshis are some the most well-known dinosaurs in the Pantheon, and that is no thanks to their presence and their reputation as heroes, even before Mario reached up to adulthood and began fighting Bowser by himself. The race is openly welcomed in the House of Heroism, though there's not much in the way of communication. What's even weirder is that Yoshis usually communicate by saying their own name, yet somehow, everyone can understand them. They'll help anyone in need (after all, for most of them, it's in their nature), yet they have a serious quench for fruits that they couldn't ignore either. It turns out that there are a number of fruits that actually imbue Yoshis with all sorts of special powers, such as Flight and fire-breathing. In addition to being a relatively peaceful species, they're also among the most formidable ones, no thanks to their sapience, wide assortment of abilities, and being determined to protect their homes and anyone that they can consider a friend.
  • Despite being dinosaurs, its a surprise for many to see that the Yoshis don't have a spot in the Hall of Mesozoic Beasts, though they do occupy a position in a nearby Hall in the same House. That doesn't stop the Yoshis from having a strong association with the former regardless and they aren't the only dinosaurs that intrinsically aren't in the Hall of Mesozoic Beasts either. It helps that there's plentiful amounts of greenery and fruits there that they can enjoy getting around with. Speaking of inhabitants, the Yoshis enjoy a great deal of company there, especially the Gang of Seven, a group of dinosaurs who've had a wide assortment of adventures and perils to deal with. Yoshi generally likes the young dinosaurs' company and plan on going out on all sorts of journeys whereas the Gang of Seven are eager to allow the Yoshis into their domain and the Great Valley, that is if their parents and other adults are willing to let them enter as well as allow the to browse through whatever fruits they hold there.
    • The Yoshis were also appreciated by a few humans with an affinity to dinosaurs, namely Harry, Alan Grant, and Jack Tenrec. Harry, being a big fan of dinosaurs to the point where he sees his toys as sentient beings find the Yoshis to be a very enjoyable presence to be around with, wasting no time in doing all sorts of activities and planning a few adventures, though the dinosaurs do tend to be wary of Harry's well-being just in case. Dr. Grant expressed some curiousity regarding the Yoshis, but eventually came to live them thanks to their helpful nature as well as them generally liking to hang out with and even help Alan in his palaeontology expeditions, though with a "no-eating" rule to make sure they don't cause unintentional damage. Finally, Jack, a man fascinated and protective of nature, sees the Yoshis as some of the most spectacular dinosaurs he's seen thanks to their way of thinking and their nature of helping others and is more than welcome to meet, hang out, and fight alongside one. It helps that Jack himself has a pet Allosaurus named Hermes, which means he can further respect the Yoshi's camaraderie and loyalty towards others.
  • Of the many vicious dinosaurs that dwell there, the one that seems to hold the most animosity towards the Yoshis was Riptor. At first, the Yoshis were unnerved by her savage nature and tend to avoid the genetically engineered raptor whenever they could But as it turns out, there was a battle simulation done by Wiz and Boomstick that pitted a Yoshi against Riptor… and Yoshi won due to a combination of intelligence and versatility, though Riptor did get to kill a Baby Yoshi during the fight. This Death Battle, being a very old one was quickly forgotten by many, but Riptor managed to hold on to that memory, and is more than determined to turn the tables prove herself the superior dinosaur. What's more annoying on Riptor's part is that even if the Yoshis take her seriously, there's still more active and dangerous threats than just a modified raptor, and Riptor has taken this as a notice to really try making herself out as the Yoshis' Arch-Enemy, even if everyone agrees that that title belongs to Kamek, who himself finds the situation regarding Riptor humorous.
  • Outside of Riptor, other predatory dinosaurs that concern the Yoshis include the Spinosaurus, Carnotaurus, Sharptooth, and One Eye. While the former two are simply just predators, albeit with the Spinosaurus being more aggressive than most animals, Sharptooth and One Eye are more malevolent threats that sometimes kill just for fun. That said, the Yoshis aren't their main target for course, instead targeting other dinosaurs, which ends up with the Yoshis becoming the interrupters towards them instead, not willing to see their friends get devoured, causing the villainous Tyrannosaurus trio to either back down or try more defensive and strategic measures to get around. The deadliest dinosaurs as far as the Yoshis are concerned are the hybrids, Indominus and Indoraptor, and the feared Brute Wyvern, Deviljho, given that they're all capable of inducing great fear towards others as well as wreaking an untold amount of havoc and destruction along the way. The Indominus and Indoraptor intend on preying on the Yoshis if given the chance, though they'd rather do the hunt independently, whereas the Deviljho will simply consume whatever it can get it's jaws on and will fight against an entire population of Yoshis if that's what it takes to satiate it's horrific hunger. On the other hand, given the amount of damage they can cause, the Yoshis do their best to avert any sort of encounter with the three of them.
    • Speckles was one of the few predatory dinosaur who, instead of antagonizing Yoshi, found instead a decent companion to interact and hang out with. Both have paternal instincts as a major virtue for them, but Speckles does feel as if he became a little too harsh of his surviving son, Speckles Jr. when he proved to be unable to hunt to a case of PTSD from nearly being killed by One Eye. Even when the Yoshis found out about Speckles's tragic life and the fact that he has to kill because of his nature as a predator, they instead insisted on simply befriending Speckles and his son as well as being of moral support for the Tarbosaurus pair. Speckles was thankful for the Yoshis for offering him and his son some company. Jr. personally really like the Yoshis, and though he can't enjoy eating fruit unlike them, the Yoshis were still insisting on finding other ways to have fun with the Tarbsaur infant, which made the pair more than happy to have the Yoshis as their friends.
  • While Mario will remains Bowser's Arch-Enemy, Yoshi may as well be his first, and Bowser would just as easily consider Yoshi the runner-up of his list of greatest enemies, if mainly because it's because of the Yoshis that Mario and Bowser really know one another. Even then, despite their enmity, Mario seeing Bowser as a friend, and Bowser begrudgingly and conversely seeing him as a Worthy Opponent has led to the two actually spending time doing some quality events like playing sports and go-karting, with Yoshi and many other of Mario's friends, enemies and acquaintances getting involved. However, there is one foe that the Yoshis cannot see in any positive light: The Shroobs. It's bad enough that the Shroobs desire genocide above all, but what they've tried to do with the Yoshis has cemented the dinosaurs' opposition towards them, especially considering they used a Shroobified Yoshi known as Yoob as a breeding ground for more of its kind via devouring other Yoshis and processing them for conversion. And with most of the other races of their world having a similar opinion, the Yoshis are not alone in fighting against the Shroobs, alongside giving the dinosaurs an awareness to be wary of other sorts of extraterrestrial threats.
  • While it's not obvious at first sight, the concept of Yoshi as a whole was mainly centred on the Tyrannosaurus, only shrunk, more intelligent and cuter, before it's appearance eventually became more distinct. That said, there was a time where a Yoshi was instead physically based on a Velociraptor, a fact that the Yoshis don't really know what to make of. Incidentally, they were a bit perplexed by an encounter with a quartet of Raptors that were led by Owen Grady. Initially, the Raptors perceived the Yoshis as prey, though Owen was able to barely convince them otherwise. In fact, the Yoshis once even helped the Raptors out when they were attacked by the Indominus, which is what allowed them to find a measure of respect for each other. Some of the Yoshis do remain wary of the Raptor Pack, though Owen, being their Herald (and the pack alpha) is doing his best to ensure that good terms can be managed between the two dinosaur species, even if the job can prove to be quite difficult. Some of the Yoshis are optimistic enough to hold out some faith on Owen's word.
  • While he isn't too familiar with the world of Mobius, the Yoshis nonetheless do manage to befriend and work alongside many of its inhabitants, with Silver the Hedgehog even finding a form of Friendly Rivalry with the dinosaurs via participating in a couple of sporting and Olympic events. Many have wondered just how do Yoshi and Silver get along, despite having very little in common with one another, but the two have basically admitted that they simply respect each others' commitment to heroism, their abilities and strengths, and generally seeing each other as a good sport whenever they would like to compete. There was one being that the Yoshis feared and despised from Mobius; Metallix. Not only was the evolved Metal Sonic a killing machine who raved on destruction, but he also destroyed Mobius at one point as well as wreaking havoc in the Mushroom Kingdom, even once almost killing Yoshi when the two met for the first time. Needless to say, the Yoshis actually treat him as one of their worst enemies, perhaps more so than even the Shroobs as Metallix did destroy Yoshi's Island in an effort to get rid of his adversaries. The omnicidal robot would also like to get back to killing the Yoshis and their friends if he ever gets the moment to do so, but the dinosaurs alongside all their friends are more than ready to fight back if needed.
  • Speaking of sporting events, the Yoshis managed to find another friend in Dino and Hoppy, given that they're quite carefree in nature and, most of all, enjoy simply having a fun time whenever they could. Hoppy, being an enthusiast, was eager to invite Yoshi along for a few boxing matches, which the dinosaur accepted out of goodwill. While platforming, adventuring and using projectiles via converting Mooks into eggs and throwing them back is their specialty, Yoshi is still more than capable of getting into close-quarters combat if that's what it takes. His presence even attracted the attention of the Rogers, a family of genetically engineered kangaroos who specialized in boxing and decided to take their bets on Yoshi. The green dinosaur ended up reminding the Rogers of a fellow friend, a genetically engineered Velociraptor named Alex who also took to boxing as his main forte in a professional life and as his main combat style. Of course, the Yoshis were eager to accept the Rogers as a friend that they're more than welcome to invite over, and the Rogers were happy with the hospitality, seeing this as an opportunity to make more friends and hone their fighting skills.
  • Given their journey to reunite Mario with Luigi back in their infancy as well as generally being protective of babies, the Yoshis are seen with a lot of respect by the House of Childhood and Adolescence and are knighted as patron saints by the Heroic Protectors of Family in the House of Family and Relatives. While the Yoshis are more than ready to protect any child from being kidnapped, they do admit that they would rather try to interact and play around with them as a way to make them happy and make new friends and memories with them. Of course, the Yoshis' reputation and presence would not be unnoticed by The Child Abuse Supporters, who feel annoyed by the fact that they have an entire species for an adversary to deal with and considering their feats and determination, they're not easy foes to take down. So far, the Yoshis are more focused on maintaining goodwill with their newfound allies and friends and serve as a mediator of sorts in keeping things optimistic and friendly.
    • One of the most notable encounters between Yoshi and an infant came with Baby Bink, a little boy who was known to have had a really wacky adventure when he was suddenly lost and a bunch of thieves tried to kidnap him for a profit, which instead yielded hilarious results and outcomes. A Yoshi once accepted to look after Bink as a babysitter, only for the boy to just wander away and take constant sightsees in the Pantheon. The Yoshi did his best to make sure he doesn't fall in danger as well as not stumbling across some of the more unsavoury Houses, only for him to to face constant trouble and peer-pressure over his job. Oh sure, Baby Bink safely made it back home, but the Yoshi had to take up a beating from a Rathalos once Bink accidentally stumbled across the nest of the Winged Wyvern, followed by kidnapping attempt. He'll defend Baby Bink, but the Yoshi really doesn't want to be reminded of the time it was on babysitting hell. And he's not the only one to endure such, with others unfortunate enough to struggle through with taking care of Baby Bink including Kazuma Kiryu, Goro Majima, Joseph Joestar, The Three Stooges Tom, and Jerry.
  • Aside from their heroics and friendly nature, Yoshis are generally known for their massive appetite. While they're known as cute, loyal, and heroic dinosaurs for a lot of denizens in the Pantheon, there are just as many who have come to see them as a threat capable of converting a foe into a weaponized egg that they would use against all sorts of enemies and to some, the Yoshis are as appreciated as they are feared. And they're not the only one with that kind of reputation either (sort of) as Kirby is also known for swallowing enemies to attain a powerset from them. It came off as no surprise when the Yoshis and Kirby just met, played with, and got along with each other really well. Such a duo came to be really loved by kids and their friends and got their enemies on high alert on just what they can be capable of. On a lighter note, they would have eating competitions in the House of Food, though the Yoshis would also take a detour in the House of Nature in case fruits are more bountiful there. Not that Kirby doesn't mind, being eager to follow the Yoshis there as a sign of their friendship and good sport.
  • The Yoshis are more than aware of otherworldly threats and even before being recognized in the Pantheon, they were familiar with crossing over to other worlds. The aforementioned olympic sporting with the Mobius denizens aside, one particular Yoshi was chosen as one of the twelve original fighters to compete in Super Smash Bros. and has remained a mainstay ever since. It's also there where Yoshi met up with al sorts of new friends to get along with and fight alongside, such as Link when the two banded together to fight against the Subspace Army, Kirby, and even the Chocobos, whom had some degree of similarity as friendly, loyal mounts for a hero. Yoshi's experience with fighting threats like Tabuu, Galeem and Dharkon helped a lot on getting the Yoshis to recognize greater threats in the Pantheon and making the most of their efforts to be of as helpful to their friends as possible.

  • Enemies: Azula, Amon, Zaheer
  • Opposed: Kuvira
  • Appa and Naga are loyal animal companions of Avatar Aang and Avatar Korra respectively, while Momo and Pabu are small but cute pets that hang with the Avatar's party. As their reputation as the team's pets are known, they were allowed to ascend.
  • Aang and Korra were each pleased to see their friends ascend, especially the sky bison and polar bear dog who've been around them since childhood. Many gods sight them riding their pets for large stretches of miles.
  • The four greeted many famed pets in the pantheon, as their reputation as pets to famous heroes is renowned.
  • Like Aang, both Appa and Momo were believed to have been the last of their species when the Fire Nation destroyed the Air Nomads. However, sometimes after the Hundred Year War, a different species of Sky Bisons and Flying Lemurs were discovered. Though they were unable to communicate, they seemed both pleased and relieved.
  • In his sleep-deprived day before the invasion, Aang once saw a hallucination of Appa and Momo talking and fighting each other like in a samurai movie. Considering that Sokka once said that Momo said terrible things to him in his dreams, it seems to be a recurring thing in hallucinations. Naga and Pabu doesn't seems to have such strange dream stories, at least for now.
  • Appa doesn't like going underground as it confines him to a small space not suitable for flying.
  • Appa sympathizes with Dumbo as he had a very bad experience in a Firebending circus run by an abusive ringmaster. It is also this experience that made him attack evil ringmasters like Ludwig von Tokkentakker when they tried to do something funny.
    • As another result of this traumatizing experience, he dislikes fire.
  • Appa would often sleep alongside Totoro, though Totoro would sleep on top of Appa rather than the other way around. It helps that Totoro found Appa to be almost like himself and the Catbus.
  • One scientist decided to figure out how exactly Appa uses his airbending to fly.
  • Some believed that Momo may have been a reincarnation of Aang's old mentor, Monk Gyatso.
  • Korra once mentioned Polar to Naga as he reminds her of Naga as a little cub, just the weird part of being just a polar bear. Naga found Polar stumbling around the snow and grew fond of him like a mother and child.
  • Balto considered Naga to be a great sledding dog, though he admits that her size can be somewhat difficult and it could be as scary as the bear that attacked him in his journey. Fortunately, Naga reminds him of Muk and Luk, two harmless polar bear cubs, so he isn't concerned with any trouble.
  • Pabu is the mascot for the Fire Ferrets, a pro-bending team composing of his partner, Bolin, his brother Mako, and Korra. Sadly, Pabu doesn't seem to find the two anywhere, but has since taken residence in Korra's temple. But he managed to find a "weasel" partner in a form of Daxter.
    • Eventually Mako and Bolin did ascend to the Pantheon. Pabu joyfully reunited with them and found his way onto Bolin's shoulder.
    • Pabu has shown to be very distrusting of Kyubey. Despite his mischievous nature, he hated Kyubey's deceptions, being responsible for the suffering of many an innocent girl, and his smug face. And the less said about him and the Toon Patrol, the better. Pabu has gotten into trouble with the weasels.

  • Thinking that having some of their deities riding on bikes, cruising through cars, or piloting jets wasn't good enough (and the fact that horses were either not cool enough or were sentient and often would not take kindly to being ridden), the Court of the Gods decided they needed something just as cool but also alive. So they decided to ascend not one, not two, not even three, but five dozen flocks of Chocobos. Not only can anybody ride them, they can also help in battle by casting magic against their enemies and healing their riders. Though it's going to take a lot of bonding between riders and Chocobos.
  • Because of their large numbers, the Chocobos have their own special field in which they can roam free. The court is currently looking for someone to maintain the field and take care of the Chocobos.
  • Chocobos come in a variety of colors. The most well-known version are the yellow ones, which can be ridden on. It takes awhile to train them, but once you do, they can become inseparable allies. However, it's a very bad idea to try and tame Chocobos of red, black, blue, or purple, as these are more violent and will attack people. There have been unfortunate cases when these types become too violent and have to be taken down. Still, there have been a lucky few who have succeeded in doing so, although it's still generally inadvisable.
    • There is a special white Chocobo called the Angel of Valhalla that is Lightning's personal mount and ally and acts as a sort of pack leader to some of the other Chocobos. He is also a reincarnated version of Lightning's Eidolon, Odin.
  • One of the best ways to bond with a Chocobo is feeding it Gysahi Greens, which look like carrots. These strange vegetables also have the extra benefit of making Chocobos less smelly.
  • Once in a while, Yoshi himself can be seen hanging around the Chocobos. The two found common grounds for being great mounts for their riders.
  • The ascended Dog Days have remarked how similar looking the Chocobos are to their own Cercles. The only real difference being that Cercles are able to fly. Because they are so similar, the Dog Days deities are able to bond with the Chocobos much faster than the other non-Final Fantasy deities.
  • The Chocobos only have one known predator, the Chocobo Eater. As the name would imply, they eat Chocobos. Thankfully, there are none in the pantheon. Right?
  • Certain Chocobos were selectively bred for the GUAG Sacred Knights as their own personal mounts to use in battle. Each of the Chocobos has their own personal armor modeled after their riders — with the only rule being that there cannot be any pink since Artix von Krieger has a very irrational fear of that color — and they are even given names. Not only that, but these special Chocobos can use Ga-level Magic instead of the standard fire, ice, thunder magic.
  • As the war between the ancients grow ever larger and known, a group of Chocobos has been bred to be couriers for the defenders. While they may not be able to fight or be mounts for the heroes, they're still competent at bringing items to them.

    • Once archenemies, it was poetic that Dr. Doofenshmirtz was the one who brought him over to the Pantheon. The two now work at O.W.C.A fighting the good fight. Perry was eager to take over checking on the scientist. Dr. Doofenshmirtz may screw up every now and then, but Perry hopes he could be a great spy one day.
    • In case everyone was wondering, Perry specifically stated that it was Agent P that ascended. Phineas and Ferb still think that their Perry is just an ordinary platypus. A previous situation where Phineas found out about his identity did not go out so well. Thus Perry keeps his identity a secret, though he brought all those pictures of that time to keep him company.
  • May well be the most blatant form of Clark Kenting in the Pantheon. Even Superman wonders how he could fool so many with just a fedora. And yet it is enough for most of the Pantheon to believe the illusion, including his owners. Dr. Doofenshmirtz admits he still has time telling the difference.
  • While not a dog, Krypto gave him a warm welcome... in the form of several licks done in a second. Sloppiness aside, Perry appreciates the company. It makes dealing with evil spy organizations a lot easier.
  • Nick Fury was skeptical to hire a platypus as a spy, but the positive word from follower Major Francis Monogram convinced him. He has since regretted to doubt Perry, who has a high success rate.
  • Met James Bond who gave him an odd request; he wanted to know how to make a platypus sound. Seeing that it's on the rage for the ladies, he wanted to add that to his wooing arsenal. A suspicious Perry would do just that,
  • Knows Kim Possible well, but hangs out with Ron Stoppable more often. Or more specifically, with Rufus the mole rat. Perry was curious to see how such a small animal could have such a huge role with the group.
  • He is the first Monotreme god in the pantheon. The closest thing to him is a marsupial called Crash Bandicoot. Conveniently enough, Perry served as high priest for Seldom-Seen Species. He found the bandicoot to play the rules a bit too loose for his tastes. Newfound freedom aside, he does occasionally visit, mainly to help Crash beat the tar out of Dr. Cortex.
    • His bouts with Nitrus Brio are a bit more personal. The mad scientist used various animals to test his serum, turning them into monstrosities. O.W.C.A made him a top priority for Perry to take down. They do not want any of their agents to fall victim to his Psycho Serum.
  • There was a time one of Dr. Doofenshmirtz's old inventions ran amok, only new and improved. Perry was there to trash the machine, who sent it to the House of Technology to run tests. The hack has been blamed on XANA. The A.I had long wanted to use the former mad scientist's tech to do his bidding. Perry has since sent this info to the Lyoko Warriors for help.
  • Understands how Dr. Doofenshmirtz didn't take Count Olaf's ascension too kindly. While he didn't actually have one, a lot of his followers under his previous title suffered under Olaf's kind.
  • The idea of a platypus that was good at combat was too good of an opportunity for Po to pass up. He just had to challenge Perry to a duel. During the fight, Po decided to touch his spur containing his venom. It proceeded to knock him out for a couple of hours. Thankfully he made a full recovery in the House of Health and Diseases. Po took it well, excited that he could say that he felt the effects of platypus venom.
  • Is familiar with some of the heroes from Marvel. While he had a role in inadvertently stripping Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and the Hulk of their powers, he made up for it by donning a costume himself. They later managed to restore their powers and helped defeat the villains, including the deified Red Skull and Venom.
  • He had to do a Double Take when he saw Pandaikon in a fedora, confusing him for Peter the Panda at first. It took a while but he soon became able know the difference between the two, and even began to think about offering Pandaikon a spot within O.W.C.A. due to his surprisingly good abilities to bail the Nerima Daikon Brothers out of trouble, even being able to rile a panda army together should the situation call for it. Dr. Doofenshmirtz had a field day when he found out Perry couldn't differentiate between Pandaikon and Peter the panda.

  • Allies: Wander, Yoshi, Chocobos, Banjo and Kazooie, Lucky Luke, He-Man/Prince Adam
  • Enemies: Lord Dominator, Lord Hater and Commander Peepers, the GUAE, the GUAD
  • Opposes: Lobo, Cruella de Vil
  • Odd Friendship: John Marston, TJ Detweiler, Tarzan
  • Admired by: Goofy Goof
  • Long have Lord Hater and Commander Peepers been relieved that a certain Zbornak wasn't in the Pantheon. That changed one fateful day. While Hater and Peepers prepared to invade the House of Heroism, Wander made his usual appearance, offering friendship. Hater set off to eradicate the pest as usual while Peepers started the invasion... only to see half the Watchdogs in a battered mess. The second in command watched in horror as Sylvia single-handedly laid waste to the army. When confronted about not being an official god, Sylvia gleefully showed him her papers officially adding her to the Pantheon. A quick fight later saw Wander and Sylvia setting off, hugging it out while the two villains recovered from their latest clobbering.
    • On occasion, she would team up with Commander Peepers, mainly to break up any sort of teamwork between Wander and Hater when they have more pressing matters at hand.
    • It was discovered that Sylvia was once a follower of Bounty Hunter Lobo before she discovered Wander, who eventually showed her the error of her ways. It's also why she does her hardest to look away from his temple, ashamed of her past self.
    • If you thought Lord Hater is vengeful, you should see Sylvia should anyone mess with Wander. She will unleash rage that would make Asura proud. It wouldn't matter what rank you were: she will deliver a beating to remember.
  • If Wander serves as The Face of the duo, convincing villains to to abandon their ways, then Sylvia provides the muscle for those who refuse. Melkor grows increasingly annoyed as invasion after invasion has been halted by her fighting prowess.
    • She has recently made enemies with the GUAD, the faction believed to have sponsored Lord Dominator's goals to destroy her galaxy. Wander and Sylvia proved to be victorious, due to some surprising help from Lord Hater. Now with Lord Dominator ascended herself, she is seeing to it that she doesn't regain her full power and keeps getting humiliated for the Pantheon is see, namely by her freaking out whenever Wander tries to befriend her.
  • Upon Wander's insistence, Sylvia set out to meet other mount deities. First was Yoshi, a creature she admits has an appetite that rivals her own. While she finds eating her opponents to be mildly disgusting, she was moved by the creature's loyalty to Mario.
    • Next up were the avian mounts known as Chocobos. The conversation was predictably short with Sylvia deciding to give the birds some seeds before setting out. The Zbornak may have taken away some of the birds, but the Chocobos don't seem to mind.
  • She and Wander sometimes hang out with fellow duo Banjo and Kazooie in the House of Music. When they decide to play music, Sylvia sits out and watches the other three play. Her singing and banjo skills were capable of clearing out the room in no time.
  • While she dislikes her time as a Bounty Hunter, she has grown fond of John Marston. One day, when she was feeling down, the Retired Outlaw went up to her temple, telling her not to be too hard on herself. She has done much to rectify what she had done and she should be proud for taking that path.
  • It took a lot of convincing to get it in everyone's heads that she is not a horse. She doesn't mind horses, though, it's just annoying to be mistaken for something you're not.
  • Once went to the House of Combat to test her skills and promptly cleared the room in the process.
  • For a moment, TJ Dettweiler thought that the infamous Ms. Finster made it to the Pantheon. Instead, he found an equine alien, one who's much more laid back. He especially loves hanging out with Wander. There were other interactions Sylvia had due to her voice.
    • Tarzan has grown to love roughhousing with her like he did with Terk. Thankfully, Sylvia can easily handle it.
    • Cruella thought it would be a good idea to capture the Zbornak and turn her into a leather coat. All she got was a trip to the hospital. Sylvia outright despises the fact that Cruella has a similar voice to her own sometimes.
  • Goofy can't help but feel attracted to her, given her similarities with Peg Pete. After one conversation that turned a little awkward, he quickly apologized to her before going on his way.
  • Was given an offering by Jolly Jumper, herald of Lucky Luke. The horse initially turned down the offer, hoping someone worthy would take the title. The two converse over their mounters, especially on how annoying they can be at times. Nevertheless, they are never too far from them.
  • Was also met by Battle Cat, He-Man's loyal steed, in his battle form. His normal form, Cringer, is a bit too nervous to interact with Syl.

  • Allies: Hallie Parker and Annie James, Anna and Tess Coleman, Lady and Tramp, Pongo and Perdita, Bolt, Bianca and Bernard, Dogmeats, Hachiko, Eliza Thornberry
  • Enemies: Cruella De Vil, Sabor, Claudandus
  • Complicated Relations: Hagen
  • Shadow, a wise old Golden Retriever, Chance, an energetic and immature American Bulldog, and Sassy, a sardonic Himalayan cat, are pets belonging to three young siblings. The animals had to be temporarily left in a farm as their owners moved to the city. They naturally didn't understand this arrangement, with Chance being convinced they'd been abandoned (as he had been many times before). Shadow, however, didn't believe that, thinking his boy was in danger instead, so he broke out of the farm and set out in search of his owner, with Chance and Sassy coming along despite misgivings. They crossed many miles of mountains and forests and braved many dangers, eventually making it back home to their family, who'd been frantically searching for them.
    • They went on a similar adventure a second time, when their family was going on vacation and the pets got lost in San Francisco due to Chance panicking at the airport and running away. Fortunately everything ended well just like last time, and they even got a new addition to their home in the form of a Kuvasz named Delilah.
  • The fact that these animals went on two great adventures filled with danger, all so they could return to their family, was found impressive by several deities. Many vouched for them to rule over Tropey, Come Home. The three were thus brought to the Main House to receive their godhood, but the deities present discovered that the pets were very distressed by their suddenly being transported into that place. Eliza Thornberry revealed that Shadow, Chance and Sassy wouldn't stop talking about how they needed to get back home, so they were placed back where they belonged and things were carefully explained to them. Once they were assured that nobody would separate them from their owners, they were far more open to the idea of joining the Pantheon, with Shadow reasoning that if they were chosen, then it was their duty to respond in kind, while Chance and Sassy just liked the idea of being gods in general. Though they also made it clear their position in the Pantheon came second to their humans.
    • The reason their housemate Delilah is merely an Herald is because she does not represent their domain, as her story actually is that of a stray who became a pet. Meanwhile, the Burnford-Seavers remain unaware of their pets' new status and activities. There's no real way the animals can communicate it to them, but they have concluded it's for the best so any complicated situations are avoided, as the Pantheon can be quite an overwhelming place.
  • With their original owners not around to care for them in the Pantheon, there was a question of just who would care for these three pets, as it felt unlikely that they would do well without someone to at least check on them once in a while, no matter how much adventuring they had done. Luckily there were no less than four volunteers: the twins Hallie and Annie, and mother and daughter duo Anna and Tess. Annie in particular seems to be very partial to Shadow, likely because she also has a Golden Retriever back home.
  • Pets around the Pantheon hold the trio in particularly high regard for their loyalty, compassion and bravery and think they are an example to aspire to. The trio is especially good friends with Lady, Tramp, Pongo and Perdita. They've noticed that Lady and Tramp's romance comes across as a gender-inverted version of the relationship between Chance and Delilah, down to Tramp leaving his stray life to become domestic. Meanwhile Pongo and Perdita had to leave their owners for a while in order to rescue their puppies; the trio understands their motives and are just glad that things turned out well and that 101 puppies in all were saved from a terrible fate. And knowing the instigator of said fate was a horrid woman called Cruella De Vil, who's well-known for perpetrating a number of cruelties on animals for her vanity, the trio has learned to be wary of her. Sometimes they take babysitting duties to watch over the Dalmatians so she doesn't get their hands on them. This also applies to the Nintendogs and Cats, which they have come to know and care for, given Cruella also once targeted them.
    • Less celebrated than Lady, Tramp and the Dalmatians is Bolt, but this little white German Shepherd has the most similar story to Shadow, Chance and Sassy, having once been separated from his beloved owner Penny, getting lost on the other side of the country and doing everything he could to get back to her. There was also some stuff about how he once thought he was a superhero when he was really the star of a TV show, which the trio thought was a peculiar situation. Bolt is way over that now though, and is just a normal dog who is VERY loyal to his girl, even braving a fire to rescue her. For that alone, the trio consider him to be an upstanding dog.
  • For all the admiration they get, the trio are pretty humble about their accomplishments. Or rather, Shadow is, while Chance and Sassy are more eager to brag, but tone it down since they follow Shadow's lead in a lot of things. Anyway, Shadow considers that there are other pets more deserving of admiration in the pantheon, such as Hachiko, who amazed the whole trio with his story of remaining loyal to his dead owner for years until he himself died. The Dogmeats are also pretty good ones, staying close to their humans all throughout a journey through a dismal wasteland filled with things far deadlier than what the trio had to deal with.
  • Eventually they heard about a dog named Hagen who also got separated from his owner, but this tale ended less well than what they've been used to hearing. Hagen struggled to survive on the streets and was mistreated by virtually every human he encountered, to the point where he became vicious (getting trained for dogfighting will do that to any dog, in fairness). By the time he broke out of the pound and started an uprising of all the dogs that had been mistreated like him, he had nearly forgotten his bond with his owner, but thankfully her music soothed him and he entered the Pantheon while maintaining a good relationship with her. The trio consider Hagen's story to be quite a sad one, though they can't help but feel nervous at some of the things he did while wreaking havoc in the city, having gone as far as killing some humans. They deserved it, but still. It's a very different world from what Shadow, Chance and Sassy are used to. Hagen himself sees the trio as lucky and doesn't really expect them to understand him. But at the least they do seem amicable, especially when they're both around the Nintendogs and such.
  • For whatever reason, Sabor seems to have fixated on the trio as potential meals and is occasionally seen on the prowl for them. While the trio may not be impressive on the power department, they can be pretty ingenious in a pinch. Sabor realized this the hard way when she was led on by them into a trap; more specifically, she got catapulted into the air and a ways away from them. This was a simple application of their experience from when they dealt with a mountain lion in their first adventure. Either way, Sabor felt thoroughly humiliated in being defeated so pathetically by a bunch of pets and seems more intent in killing them since then.
  • There were times in their adventures when they stopped in order to help a stranger in distress. For example, Shadow insisted in staying with a little girl lost in the forest until her parents found her, and there was also that time they saw a house on fire and took it upon themselves to rescue the boy living there and his kitten. These selfless actions got the attention of Bernard and Bianca, who praise the trio for saving children in danger, which is exactly what the two mice do. Because of this, they have invited the trio to work in cooperation with the Rescue Aid Society so they can save more children in bad situations. The trio responded that they are available whenever needed. Shadow in particular thinks that it seems like a very noble occupation.
  • Sassy likes to brag about the supposed superiority of cats over dogs (encapsulated by her trademark phrase "Cats rule and dogs drool!"). It's one of the reasons she is constantly trading jibes with Chance, whereas Shadow takes it in stride. After all, for all her posturing, she has stuck with those two through thick and thin and wouldn't trade them for all the tuna in the world. And that is why she will never ever side with the likes of Claudandus, who shares Sassy's views on their kind being superior, but takes it to an extremely nightmarish extent with him actively planning humanity's downfall (his stance on dogs is unclear, but can't be good what with "Man's Best Friend" and all), even if he has to hurt innocent cats in the process. Chance couldn't help but joke that Claudandus is like a supervillain version of Sassy. Either way, considering the trio love their humans very much and like humanity in general, they're not interested in letting the evil cat have his way.

    White Fang 
White Fang, God of Strays Turned Pets

  • Demigod
  • Symbol: Himself
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (formerly True Neutral)
  • Portfolio: Nature Versus Nurture, Byronic Hero
  • Domains: Canines, Wilderness, Survival

  • Enemies: Cruella De Vil, Rusty
  • A she-wolf gives birth to a litter of five cubs, but only one of them survives following a lynx attack that killed the others and the she-wolf’s mate. They cross paths with a tribe of Native Americans, with Grey Beaver, one member of the tribe, recognizing the she-wolf as Kiche, his dead brother’s wolfdog who had left prior. The cub, now given the name White Fang by the tribe, endures a hard life in part of the tribe’s pups hating him for being a wolfdog, shaping White Fang to be a ruthless dog. Later on, White Fang ends up in Fort Yukon with Grey Beaver and ends up in the hands of the villainous dogfighter Beauty Smith who forces him to fight other canines. It’s through gold hunter Weedon Scott, who had stopped a deadly fight White Fang ended up in and forcefully bought the wolfdog from Beauty Smith, that White Fang’s life takes a turn for the better. After being domesticated by Weedon, White Fang follows him to California and learns to further adjust to being a pet. An escaped convict threatens to get revenge on Weedon, but after White Fang puts an end to those plans, the wolfdog is finally able to live a peaceful life with sheep-dog Collie and their litter of puppies.
  • Following an arduous life, White Fang has been able to relax and live peacefully, though things took a turn for the unexpected when Weedon received a letter in the mail from an unknown sender asking about a meeting regarding White Fang. There was a bit of concern, but when the time came for the meeting, the person who arrived happened to be friendly and had a dog of his own for White Fang to hang out with while the conversation with Weedon was taking place. Once the conversation had wrapped up and the visitors left, Weedon told White Fang about a “Pantheon” that was the subject of that conversation and showed the wolfdog various pictures from the place and a couple brochures that provided more detailed information about what to expect from a world as large as the Pantheon. While there was some concern from White Fang about what could happen in the Pantheon, Weedon promised the wolfdog that he’ll be by his side even in an unusual setting, giving White Fang some relief in regards to potential concerns regarding problems similar to what the wolfdog endured back then.
  • In many ways, White Fang’s adventures can be seen as a counterpart to that of Buck as the former went from being a stray animal to a pet while the latter went through the opposite progression. Regardless of the differences, one thing that they had in common was that they both have (or had in Buck’s case) an owner that had a strong bond with them that would shape them to being who they would become at the end of their journey. While White Fang went out on an adventure with Weedon, the wolfdog met Buck in the cold wilderness one day and both could tell that there was something similar, yet different about the other. Not only that, but Buck saw Weedon as having something in common with John Thornton in terms of caring masters. In the end, the two canines saw each other as a reflection of what their past lives were like, but still good friends nevertheless.
  • At times, Batman had his own canine companion, Ace the Bat-Hound, to help him in his crime-fighting endeavors, though one version of how he originally met Ace was a bit similar to how White Fang ended up with Weedon Scott, but with some notable differences in how things played out. Ace was originally involved with illegal dogfighting before running away and met Bruce Wayne, where he helped the former Batman fend off a thug, prompting Bruce to adopt him. From there, Ace would help Bruce and the current Batman, Terry Mcginnis, in fighting crime, though it took a bit of time before Terry and Ace got along with each other. While White Fang has had his share of encountering danger, it isn’t to the same level that Bruce and Terry had to go through, but meeting the wolfdog certainly brought Ace to mind and the two have made sure White Fang is safe should Weedon Scott end up in grave danger.
  • Hagen was another canine who found himself in illegal fights against other dogs as part of significant events that would shape who he would become, but while White Fang would find himself on the path of rehabilitation, Hagen went down a darker path related to revenge. Both Hagen and White Fang would also contend with discrimination related to their status as mixed-breed canines. Hagen’s former owner Lili served as a calming influence for him given how much she cared about him prior to being separated from her, though said separation was the catalyst for Hagen’s adventure while White Fang being calmed by Weedon was a later part of the wolfdog’s life. While there was a significant contrast to how things played for for them, Buck played a role in helping White Fang befriend Hagen and seeing as how White Fang’s current owner is just as caring as Lili was for him, Hagen was willing to help White Fang out when things get tough for the wolfdog.
  • White Fang’s first master was Grey Beaver, a Native American who was part of a tribe and made the then-young wolfdog a part of it alongside Kiche, White Fang’s mother. The wolfdog had a difficult time there due to the other pups hating him for being a wolfdog in spite of the tribe and Grey Beaver not showing the same kind of hostility towards him. Through Buck, White Fang met a notable Native American known as Pocahontas who showed reverence towards nature and the process of her befriending White Fang happened just as quickly as she did with Buck, if slightly quicker given Buck’s issue with Native Americans killing John Thornton and White Fang having been part of a Native American tribe and later being domesticated by Weedon. White Fang has visited Pocahontas whenever he is traversing around nature-based parts of the Pantheon and sees her as a kinder soul than Grey Beaver, who had his share of flaws as a person.
  • At the hands of Beauty Smith, White Fang ended up being abused and forced to take part in dogfighting against other animals, with a lynx being one of his opponents during such a tenure. This remains a dark chapter in White Fang’s life and seeing others treat animals poorly in the Pantheon was something that made the wolfdog bitter. Of those kinds of individuals, Rusty was one standout example of poor animal treatment (even if the “animals” Rusty has with him were more fantastical than others and some not even resembling actual animals) that it made White Fang snarl at Rusty whenever they met. Given how Rusty has attempted multiple times to make his companions do things that they aren’t meant to do, the fact that he has a record of killing his “pets”, and that he’s seemingly incapable of realizing his mistakes, White Fang has every reason to despise him and on his bad days, has even attacked the trainer to force him out of his sight.
  • Putting up with horrible human beings was an issue for White Fang as is, but he has gone through plenty of life-or-death scenarios which are sometimes tied to said humans. Beyond that, there are those in the Pantheon who have no issues killing animals like White Fang if it means gaining some monetary value out of it or for amusement. Given how much canines hate Cruella De Vil as is, it isn’t much of a surprise that White Fang harbors that same contempt towards her, especially since she has considered expanding her fashion empire to include more “exotic” fur coats made out of wolves or other canines that are more extraordinary than regular breeds. White Fang doesn’t have much of an issue going up against Cruella by herself, though if she’s hired some outside help to make things easier for her, then other canines who are on White Fang’s side will get involved to make things even.
  • While White Fang was a sled dog like Buck, that occupation only happened for a period of time and wasn’t the main thing that he was known for. It didn’t stop him from having a meeting with Balto, who was acquainted with Buck and had dealt with similar discrimination from others over being part-wolf. While White Fang’s tenure as a sled dog didn’t accomplish much other than hardening his own character, Balto knew that lives were on the line regarding medicine being shipped and a hostile sled dog that was only interested in having the fame for himself, regardless of who dies in the process. Balto certainly had his own personal angst to confront, but the sled dog was disturbed at how bad White Fang had it before finding a peaceful life in the end. Even with the darker nature of events regarding White Fang, both wolfdogs found strong kinship with each other when it came to overcoming their personal struggles with the help of trusted individuals.
  • If it weren’t for Weedon, then White Fang would have likely maintained a negative viewpoint of humans in addition to having a hostile attitude in the long run. While White Fang is able to live with a kind human that helped him reshape his behavior, the wolfdog learned of a couple of canines named Rowf and Snitter who have had a much harder life thanks to being runaway lab experiments and had a rather different opinion on humans. Rowf thoroughly dislikes humans given what he and Snitter had gone through, though the latter used to have a kind master before being an experiment and doesn’t exactly share the same belief on humans that Rowf does. The two learned of White Fang’s story and while people like Beauty Smith offered sufficient evidence for Rowf’s mindset, the end involving White Fang living a peaceful life with a mate and Weedon went over well with Snitter. Much like Buck’s view of the two, White Fang was supportive of Rowf and Snitter, though he has subtly given Snitter hints in making sure Rowf is more aware of humans who are genuinely benevolent whenever the runaway duo encounter them.
  • White Fang wasn’t the only canine who was taken in by caring people after being a stray. Despite living in a more urban setting, The Tramp was someone who never had an owner (or at least, used to have an owner before being abandoned) and wasn’t very supportive of the idea of having an owner due to abandonment being an inevitability, but relied on his wits to survive, and it was his meeting with Lady, a domesticated canine, that he improved as a canine and the Tramp became part of Lady’s family and had puppies together. As The Tramp has gotten accustomed to being a house-pet while acknowledging his past as a stray, he and Lady heard about White Fang’s story and how brutal it was for the wolfdog and how things felt dire until Weedon took him in and helped him recover. It didn’t stop the two from welcoming White Fang to their home whenever they visit and the wolfdog is willing to protect the two whenever The Tramp’s street-smarts aren’t enough.
