    Barbara Ann Minerva/Cheetah 
Barbara Ann Minerva, Goddess of Beastesses (Cheetah, Priscilla Rich, Debora Domaine, Sabrina Ballesteros, The Apex Predator)
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Either the Claws of a Cheetah or her Alternate Self's Injustice 2 Emblem (a Cheetah head).
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Beastesses, Dark Action Girls, Barbie Doll Anatomy, Evil Redheads, Power at a Price, Super Speed and Super Strength, Cannibalism, Evil Brits, Femme Fatalons, Cat Girls, Diabolical Masterminds. Formerly Legacy Characters.
  • Domains: Savagery, Villainy, Hunting, Great Britain.
  • Allies: Lex Luthor, Captain Cold, Harley Quinn, Hannibal Lecter, Jabba the Hutt, Lust, Mileena.
  • Enemies:
  • Most stories depict Barbara Ann Minerva as a mere archeologist who discovered a powerful artifact. Sadly, it was cursed with the blood of a dead guardian and the berries/leaves of the ancient plant god Urzkartaga. It transformed her into a terrifying archetype of a humanoid cheetah. No matter what version she has become, Cheetah always goes to blows with her arch nemesis Wonder Woman. The latest version puts a tragic twist in the story. The woman once idolized the amazon before blaming her for failing to prevent the curse. Diana hopes to find a cure for the ailment.
    • Ascended at petition of Lex Luthor, God of Super Villains. She's one of the most powerful animal-themed supervillainesses in the Pantheon and can go toe to toe with the likes of Superman. Some say she even has an advantage over him over her magic claws.
    • With that said, her power level has fluctuated over the years, from managing to beat Superman to being knocked out by Batman in one blow. It was also during that time that she had a feud with antihero Catwoman. The two remain harsh enemies, with Cheetah furious that Selina actually came close to beating her. In that case, the Court of the Gods sympathized with ther and upgraded her to Intermediate Goddess.
  • Is not really a team player when it comes to working with the GUAE. All she truly wants is to see Wonder Woman dead at her hands. All else is secondary. With that said, she is a valuable asset to the cause.
  • DC heroes aren't the only ones who have to be careful with her. She has started to attack Hercules as well. The demigod has relished the challenge, though he has assured Wonder Woman that he won't outright kill her. The bouts between the two have been draws so far.
  • There was a time when Cheetah picked out a person to hold for ransom. That person turned out to be Annabeth Chase, a big fan of Diana. She was disappointed that the person who arrived was Percy instead. The subsequent fight was a brutal one as his rage was enough to drive her off. The son of Poseidon isn't as forgiving and won't guarantee that he would let Cheetah live if they meet again.
  • Her next target was Maya Fallegeros, whose organization is specifically designed to deal with threats like her. While Maya agreed to let Diana handle this, she fears that it would eventually lead to people getting killed. Turns out that she was next in line. Luckily, her daggers were more than capable of piercing Cheetah's hide. Still, it was a battle she had to retreat from. Afterwards, she manage to get Wonder Woman to reluctantly pool their resources for capturing Barbara.
    • Other hunters have flowered and not with the same restraint. Rengar sees the Cheetah as a worthy adversary to challenge. He has every intention to have her head as a trophy.
    • The Hunter decided that Cheetah was to dangerous to let roam and has set off to deal with the threat him/herself. It may be a tall order to the hunter, but it's odds that the God of Monster Hunters has dealt with in the past.
  • The only other person that she hates nearly as much as Wonder Woman is... Kratos. The former God of War can't stop attacking her, hoping to claim her fur as a prize. It's one of the few instances where she is willing to form an alliance with Diana. There is no version where the amazon would let Barbara get murdered.
  • Due to the fact that she's not a virgin to start with, she must cope with the pain when untransformed... and when she transforms again, she gets euphoria.
  • Her alternate self is shown to join a society of supervillains led by Gorilla Grodd. This one is more vicious than most and is convinced that amazon blood can cure her curse. She actually like this version of her, unlike most of the other DC deities. She hopes that her appearance would draw more to her rank.
  • Many have wondered that if her abilities include super speed. It is possible since Wonder Woman is superhumanly fast after all. While Barry doubts she's as fast as him, he did admit she has been able to tag him at times.
  • One thing that's true is that she does not speak fluent Cheetah. Inori tested this out by trying to talk to Barbara that way. The experiment nearly got her killed in the proccess.
  • Is occasionally a mercenary under Jabba the Hutt. Her skills as an archeologist comes in handy when it comes to exploring remote parts of Tatooine.
  • There was a hope that the ascension of Frasier Crane would finally get her to see a true psychiatrist. Instead, she purposely sought the service of Hannibal Lecture. There is little doubt that his service will be counterproductive of what she actually needs.
  • Has formed a rather odd team up with Mileena. Like Barbara, Mileena maintains an obsession with Kitana due to being her clone. Both woman have agreed to help kill the other.

    Ichigo Momomiya/Mew Ichigo 
Ichigo Momomiya, Goddess of Catgirls (Mew Ichigo, Momomiya-san, Zoey Hanson)

    Lady Vashj 
Lady Vashj, Goddess of Snake People (Coilfang Matron, Naga Sea Witch, The Shaman, Vashj Prime, Baron Vashj)
Vash as a Night Elf 
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Bow
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: The Dragon to Azshara and Illidan, Flunky Boss, Deeply jealous of Tyrande, Only referred to as Vashj, Mage Marksman, Formerly a Highborne turned Naga
  • Domains: Snake People, Bows, Frost magic, Sea, Loyalty
  • Allies: Illidan Stormrage, Kael'thas Sunstrider, Medusa, Ursula
  • Rivals: Slithice the Naga Siren, Laharl, Alice, Other Archers.
  • Enemies: Tyrande Whisperwind, Malfurion Stormrage, Arthas Menethil, Samuel L. Jackson, Indiana Jones, Murky, Leviathan the Tidehunter, Undyne, Ariel
  • Annoyed by: Miia
  • Opposes: N'Zoth
  • Originally a member of the Highborne, Lady Vashj was once the right hand of Queen Azsharam which Vashj was deeply loyal too, until the first invasion of the burning legion happened and as a result, the world was hit by the Great Sundering. Her people was turned into the Naga after Azshara made a deal with a powerful force (Rumored to be the old god N'Zoth) and since then they have been terrorizing the depths of the ocean.
    • She was actually surprised to find Lord Illidan ascended, and as a result decided to serve him once more. At first she had her doubts about Kael'thas but nonetheless has warmed up to him overtime.
  • She originally confused Slithice for a fellow Naga Sea Witch but the latter didn't want to be involved with her in any way. Vashj can't help but feel like she looks somewhat familiar
  • She once bumped into Laharl once and was perplexed to find that the Half-Demon sounds somewhat like her. Laharl on his part finds this interesting and considers Vashj his personal rival, but the Naga Witch only limits herself to ignore him. Although she knows for a fact that her fighting style hard-counters him anyway.
  • Murky despises her since the Naga enslaved some murlocs and usually attacks her on sight. Vashj is actually surprised that a tiny Murloc could be so persistant.
    • That also made her enemies with Tidehunter and Undyne, who are the so-called "big brothers" of Murky. She has been attacked by them in a couple of occasion but nothing she couldn't handle by herself.
  • Because of her title, both Samuel Jackson and Indiana Jones don't like being around her. One is tired of dealing with creatures like her while the other is actually scared of her.
  • She is really loyal to her master Queen Azshara, to the point of being a borderline Yandere if someone got any favours from her. That's why she despises Tyrande because she was asked to join Azshara, which made Vashj felt really jealous of the Priestess.
    • She was invited once to join other Yanderes but she turned them down because she is much more composed thanks to Illidan's command.
  • She is a very skilled archer and often likes to practice her aim by shooting at murlocs in her free time. That's why she is bitter rivals with any archer she comes accross.
  • Given her nature as a Naga, she frequently seen hanging around large bodies of water. She actually made some good friends that reminds her of her people like Ursula. Of course, Ariel doesn't like how Vashj got very friendly with Ursula and tries to avoid her at all costs.
  • She has heard interesting thing about the so called Nexus and wanted to join Illidan and Kael in the brawl. Unfortunately, she is still waiting for her invitation but she hasn't given up her chances yet.
  • Her reaction to other people like her has been...mixed to say the least
    • She does get along with Medusa because both were turned into the creatures they are today an Vashj believes that the gorgon could be a really powerful Naga Sea Witch if she wanted. She was even surprised that in the past when Medusa fought alongside the Defenders of the Ancient, she used to look a lot like her.
    • Miia originally mistook her for another Lamia and tried to befriend her, even to the point of inviting her to share some "private time" with her darling. Vashj refused, stating that she is a Naga, not a Lamia. It got to the point that the Naga once tried to Freeze Miia because she kept pestering her
    • Her poor treatment over Miia made another Lamia come after her. To her surprise, Alice was actually more powerful than she looked and Vashj finds her a worthy adversary. Alice just warned the naga to behave around Miia or she will see her again very soon.
    • She is actually very impressed by those who can assume a serpentine form; deified examples include Luna Platz and Cobra Commander.
  • She grew curious about the so called Tavern and when lord Illidan became a hero of his own class she decide to enter the fray too, as a shaman no less. She can also show up as a regular minion, though she vastly prefers being a player instead. Did you know she used to be a night elf?
  • "Your time ends now!"

    Red XIII/Nanaki 
Red XIII, God of Wise Beasts (Nanaki, "DogCat", "MeowBark")


Lesser Gods

Caesar, God of Uplifted Animals
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Apes' tribal insignia (modeled after a circular attic window Caesar had back when he lived with humans)
  • Theme: Apes Together Strong
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Leading his Fellow Apes, Guile Hero, Ideal Hero, Intelligence that Surpasses Most Humans, Magnetic Hero, Raised by Humans
  • Domains: Leadership, Intelligence, Apes
  • Heralds: Will and Charles Rodman, Caroline Aranha, Malcolm and his family, Buck, Luca, Cornelia, Blue Eyes, Cornelius, Maurice, Rocket, Bad Ape, Red, the loyal apes of Caesar's tribe, Nova
  • Avatar: Andy Serkis
  • Allies: Winston, King Kong, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, pretty much all non-evil primate gods in the Pantheon, Fluttershy, Babar, Crash Bandicoot, Nezu, Moses, Littlefoot
  • Enemies: Koba, Mojo Jojo, Scar, Napoleon
  • Opposes: Zaius
  • Opposed by: The God-Emperor of Mankind
  • Odd Friendship with: Asterix
  • A scientist named Dr. Will Rodman set out to create a cure for Alzheimer's Disease, leading to the creation of ALZ-112. An ape known as "Bright Eyes" ended up getting affected by the virus and started acting aggressive towards humans. After she was put down, Rodman adopted her baby and names him Caesar. This ape shows intelligence beyond that of normal ones and as Rodman continues to work, Caesar continues to grow. Eventually, Caesar is taken away to an abusive animal plant, starts an uprising with his ape inmates, and parts ways with Rodman. From there, he establishes a tribe with his apes and following a failed attempt at a peaceful coexistence with humans, he and his tribe set out to find a new home. After running into an insane colonel, Caesar and his apes, alongside a mute human girl who tagged along with them, find a new home for Caesar's tribe, though it ended with Caesar succumbing to wounds he incurred earlier.
  • Despite having some clashes with humans in the past, Caesar has made it quite clear, having also seen the good side of humans, that he doesn't believe humans are real monsters nor are they bastards, which has put him at odds with most gods that actually do believe those things, but he always does what he can to avoid having to get violent with those gods whenever possible.
  • With many different kinds of primates from different worlds present, Caesar got an opportunity to get himself acquainted with them. He's friendly towards most of them, but of particular note are Winston and King Kong. In Winston's case, they can relate to them dealing with resentful apes that caused significant conflict with Koba's betrayal of Caesar and Winston's caretaker getting killed by other gorilla's present in the place Winston used to live in respectively. As for Kong, it could be some sort of similarity between them, along with Caesar being aware that Kong isn't that bad by default. As for some of the other primates, Caesar was a bit surprised when he found out Donkey Kong and his Kong Krew sometimes use unconventional weapons, but was quickly assured that the weapons are used whenever there's serious trouble and not for instigating wanton havoc.
    • Even though there isn't much in the way of primates that could cause trouble aside from Koba, Mojo Jojo was someone that Caesar is very wary of. While he knows of the circumstances that would lead to Mojo Jojo becoming who he is, all those attempts at taking over the world is more than enough for Caesar to keep watch on him. At the very least Mojo Jojo hasn't taken up on Koba's offers for an alliance yet.
  • He has gained a lot of sympathy from, oddly enough, Fluttershy, who was horrified to have learned the cruelty that he and his ape tribe suffered at the hands of very bad humans. Caesar in return has shown a great deal of respect for Fluttershy, due to the fact that Fluttershy is more than happy to treat apes with kindness. Though whenever they talk, Caesar would usually just use sign language since Fluttershy found his voice a little too intimidating (though she was amazed to learn Caesar was capable of speech).
  • Caesar gets along great with Babar, and was the first to note that he and the elephant king have had remarkably similar adventures; they both ended up raised by humans shortly after the deaths of their mothers, but eventually returned to their kind and formed thriving kingdoms using the knowledge they gained from their upbringing. Babar recognizes and admires that Caesar is, by all accounts, a good person and an excellent leader to his people even after everything the primate's been through.
  • Probably the only kinds of humans that he just doesn't like are people who are abusive to animals, given his past of living in an animal shelter and putting up with a cruel headmaster. Draco Malfoy, who somehow resembles the man that abused Caesar and other apes, is someone that Caesar would very much keep his distance from. Caesar is also aware that Draco is not quite as bad of a person now compared to back then, but prefers not to be near him just to be safe.
  • Despite Caesar doing his best not to cause too much trouble for humans, The God-Emperor of Mankind is incredibly distrustful of Caesar, seeing as how the circumstances that led to Caesar and the other ape's intelligence increasing would cause catastrophic damage later, especially for humans.
  • While he was able to a number of additional animals with increased intelligence throughout the Pantheon, he managed to get along really well with Nedzu and Crash Bandicoot (though "intelligent" is used pretty loosely for the latter's case). Caesar was actually friends with Crash for some time and, before Koba ended up becoming a major problem, Caesar talked to Crash about giving Koba a tour of the Pantheon. It was something that Caesar would later regret, especially since he didn't realize Koba's true nature until it was too late. And then there was another later incident where Koba tried to kill Nedzu, but failed. Nevertheless, Caesar, Crash, and Nedzu hang out together on a regular basis, usually to talk about Caesar and Nedzu's goals and good coexistence, with Crash simply tagging along.
  • Usurpers are a bit of a sore spot for him given what happened between him and Koba. Caesar really doesn't like Scar and Napoleon to say the least, given how the two caused plenty of problems for others under their rule after taking it over. It really doesn't help that the two are already allied with Koba, especially with Napoleon being similar to Koba in more ways than one.
  • His journey to lead his apes to a safe haven and being a strong leader for them while overcoming a multitude of hardships brought Caesar the attention of Moses and Littlefoot. The two also had their own adventures in finding a new home amidst troubling times and Moses can relate to Caesar's predicament of coming into conflict against someone that was once close to him. Littlefoot in particular was saddened to hear that Caesar never got to live to see a good life in his ape tribe's home after reaching it.
  • It didn't take that long for him to find out that there's another human named Caesar. More specifically, the Roman Emperor Julius Ceasar. The ape is very cautious of this particular Caesar to say the least, especially with all of the divisive opinions people have on the Roman Emperor, along with experience in military and war. Oddly enough, both Caesars ended up being victims of being backstabbed by a former ally of theirs, though the ape survived the attempt on his life. Julius Caesar does see the primate as a good leader to the ape tribe and isn't fond of Koba all things considered.
    • This did lead Asterix to the primate, thinking that something is wrong there. The confusion was cleared up after a bit of time and Asterix was on peaceful terms with the primate. The primate's leadership skills and intentions, along with Asterix having a good heart, may have helped.
  • Apes alone weak, apes together strong.

    Hunter and Bianca 
Hunter and Bianca, Co-Gods of Carnivore Confusion
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: Hunter's bow and Bianca's spellbook
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (Hunter) and Neutral Good (Bianca)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Anthropomorphic Animals, Interspecies Romance
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Spyro, Sparx, and Ignitus threw Hunter and Bianca a lively party in the House of Celebration when it was announced that they had been chosen to ascend. They weren't too amused when they found out what they were ascending for, though. They've been enjoying godhood so far, but the both of them prefer not to bring up their title whenever possible. All in all, they just try to enjoy their stay in the Pantheon, and to not think too hard on their title or second guess themselves.
  • While they were happy to join their friends among the ranks of the Pantheon, Hunter and Bianca weren't all too excited to find out that a few of their old enemies had also ascended. Ripto who had once attempted to take over Avalar, has a temple, as well as Malefor, the dragon who wanted to take over the entire world, and was responsible for Ignitus' death.
    • While Moneybags is also a jerk, and Hunter and Bianca very rightfully dislike him, he isn't quite as malicious as Ripto or Malefor. He's on Bianca's bad side especially, though, because of his willingness to sell a dragon egg rather than turn it over to Spyro.
  • Nabi and Doki, being a fellow cat-rabbit pair, have been majorly supportive of Hunter and Bianca and are always there for them to help them ease their doubts. They completely understood Hunter and Bianca's apparent dislike for their title and confided in them about the hardships they faced as an interspecies couple prior to their ascension.
    • Ruby has become fairly close with Hunter and Bianca for similar reasons. She once had a crush on a cat, and has been with both a human and a lion. She always assures them that it really is best not to think too hard on it, and to just enjoy each other's company no matter what. Ruby and Bianca can also be frequently seen practicing magic together.
  • Miyamoto Usagi and Judy Hopps, excited to see another member of their kin ascend, welcomed Bianca to the Pantheon with open arms. They're pretty fond of Hunter, too, but they do think that he needs to put some clothes on. Nabi and Doki have been thinking the same thing, but they've respectfully elected to never bring it up.
  • What finally motivated Bianca to turn away from evil was the revelation that the Sorceress, her former master, had been planning to kill the baby dragons they had stolen for their wings. As such, she has nothing nice to say about the Child Abuse Supporters or any other deity who willingly harms children.
    • Bianca was horrified when she found out what exactly "continuity" meant when used in reference to the Grineer. Warping the minds of children into complete despair before hijacking their bodies? Despicable! As such, Bianca abosolutely detests the Twin Queens.
    • Already disturbed by the existence of Pleasure Island, Bianca was even more displeased to find out that its owner, the Coachman, also existed among the ranks of the Pantheon. There aren't enough words out there to describe her distaste for him. The fact that he wants to introduce resident Child Eater Pennywise as a clown on Pleasure Island only intensifies her hatred for him.
  • Bianca greatly admires Trixie and her efforts to become a better pony. She was evil herself once under the Sorceress and has never been better since she chose the path of goodness over evil. Trixie can often be seen tutoring Bianca in magic.
  • Hunter sometimes gets accused of being a stoner. He either gets disapproving glances from deities who think that he looks and sounds high, or deities asking where he hides his stash and where he gets it, because they want what he's having. Hunter is getting increasingly unamused by these allegations.

    "Hunter" Series 
Hunter Series, Divine Biologically-Made Reptilian People (MA-121)
Hunter α
Hunter β
Hunter γ
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: Their Claws
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Half-Human Hybrid, It Can Think, Made of Iron, Prone to decapitating their targets in a single strike, Sadist, Super Soldier, Was Once a Man
  • Domains: Reptiles, Bio-weapons, Hunting, Virus, Killing
  • "Allies": Albert Wesker, Syzoth/Reptile, Mesogog, Indominus Rex
  • Rivals: The Green Flu Hunter, The Yharnam Hunter
  • Enemies: Chris and Claire Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, Jill Valentine, Rebecca Chambers, Madame Vastra, Reiji Arisu and Xiaomu
  • The "Hunters" are a series of B.O.W.s developed by the umbrella corporation with the purpose of eliminating anyone that may have survived the impact of the T-Virus or is immune to it. These reptilian creatures are highly aggresive, predatory and sadistic, often preferring to playing with their victims before killing them. They are also incredibly smart, enough that a pack of them overwhelmed the House they currently reside and had it closed from the rest of the pantheon given that it took a while before all the Hunters were eliminated and promptly relocated to a new temple. They were kept imprisoned in their current temple to avoid any potential Hunter attack that they could attempt.
  • The temple they reside nowadays wasn't designed for them in mind, in fact it used to belong to Madame Vastra, a reptilian much like them but far from aggresive as the Hunters and apparently there are rumors that supposed invasion of the Hunters was something planned by Wesker to displace Vastra and force the pantheon authorities to contain the creatures in a temple. She doesn't mind being moved to a different place but she is very unhappy that these reptilian creatures don't help but create a bad impression about Reptilians.
  • While there are many variants for the Hunter Series, three in particular are the most common found in their containment temple. The Alpha are the standard reptilian creatures, prone to lunging at their enemies and slashing their heads off. Then there are the Betas who are as aggressive as their Alpha counterpart but because of a series of tumors in their upper body, they have limited vision but make it up by being much more intelligent. Lastly, the last Hunter variant, Gamma, are more amphibian in nature but lack eyes so they use sound to move around. Instead of decapitating their foes, they instead prefer to swallow them alive.
  • Reptile was curious about this creatures, reminding them of their extinct race of Saurians and wanted to learn more from them. Turns out he is one of the few deities that creatures are not hostile to, seeing him as a rare variant of a Sweeper who is more sapient as a result. Other more sensible deities have tried to keep Syzoth from spending too much time with the B.O.W.s in fear he becomes as aggressive as them.
  • Some deities, led by Albert Wesker, have snuck into the Hunters temple and experimented on them by throwing the Alpha variants into FEV. The results were mixed, some became a more mutated version of the Sweeper Alpha variants with a more lethal toxine while others affected by the FEV suffered mutations that resulted into a Hunter Alpha becoming somewhat similar to their Beta counterparts, albeit the actual results have been redacted since most subjects have been terminated.
  • Hunters have been a huge godsend for many that are involved in the bio-weapons market, so they are heavily sought after for how effective they are at murdering certain targets. That was one of the many reasons Kano saw potential in the reptilians, besides that he really wants to use thema against the S-F Team as well as the Cage Family.
  • Notoriously, a few of deities have met other deities in a certain interdimensional conflict where as always, attacked anyone. Two particular deities in the form of Reiji Arisu and Xiaomu are very familiar with them and were not happy to learn that a huge pack of them were contained in a part of the pantheon, so they have kept an eye on them.
  • The Gamma Variants don't tend to be lumped with their fellow Alpha and Beta versions, since they are closer to amphibians in nature and as a result need to be near bodies of water to survive. That's why those that managed to slip up from the temple tend to go to the House of Water & Moisture or Aquatic Life. This would have proven problesome for the residing deities since Gamma Hunters are still as dangerous as their counterparts but the issues have been slightly fixed by the presence of the Plesioth and Zamtrios, who are known to feast on frogs and have taken advantage of the sudden appearance of the Gammas to feed on them.
  • Surprisingly they get along with the Indominus Rex of all creatures, given that both the Hunters and the Indominus Rex are genetic designed creatures of reptilian origin that are very smart for their supposed animalistic behavior. She also has some amphibian traits so she also tends to be surrounded by the Gamma variants from time to time.
  • Mesogog sees a lot of potential for his plans and has also forcibly taken a few of the Hunters from their temple to experiment on them. There is a rumor that he has managed to create another variant of a Hunter but so far nothing has been confirmed.
  • Not to be confused with either the Green Flu Hunter nor the Yharnam Hunter. The B.O.W.s have had encounters with both deities, the infected one behaves somewhat like them but his humanoid appearances makes the reptilians target him like any other human they see and while he can hold his ground, he can't handle more than two of them before he is overwhelmed. On the other hand, the Yharnam Hunter has been able to fend of several packs of Hunters in their related pantheon adventures, as the reptilians are nothing they haven't encountered before.

    Irena Dubrovna 
Irena Dubrovna, Goddess of Sexualized Cat People
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The statue of Jovan Nenad/"King John of Serbia" stabbing a cat
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Member of the cat people, nobody believes her, abhors her nature to the point that she kills herself, Animals Hate Her, Cat Scare
  • Domains: Felines, Werebeasts, Sex, Otherness
  • Allies: Larry Talbot/Wolf Man, Bruce Banner/Hulk, Remus Lupin, Cassandra, Elsa of Arendelle, The Monsters, Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Stella Hoshii, Ichigo Momomiya
  • Enemies: Vincent Godfrey
  • Opposes: Yuno Gasai, Alex Forrester
  • Avoids: Hircine
  • Irena Dubrovna is a Serbian woman who was born in a village with a superstition that their women would turn into ferocious felines if they felt any heightened emotion. Irena believed this, which strained her relationship with her American husband Oliver Reed, who did not understand her refusal to be intimate with him and thought of the superstition as pure hogwash. He would eventually learn that it was all too true after starting an affair with his coworker Alice, which caused jealousy and fury in Irena, leading to her transforming into a black panther and threatening both of them. Irena did not mean to be evil however, but as she could not control her transformation, she ultimately decided to end her life for everybody's sake.
  • Sightings of a black panther prowling around the Pantheon's inhabited areas were being reported (and it was confirmed not to be a familiar, friendly panther like Bagheera). Authorities called for the panther to be returned to her proper place, and so hunters were sent out to capture her. They succeeded in shooting her with a tranquilizer, and everybody was surprised when the panther, upon collapsing, turned into a beautiful woman. She was brought to the House of Health and Diseases, where she was identified as Irena Dubrovna and as she was dead in her world she couldn't go back there, at least. Irena was not especially bothered by this, as she thinks she ought to stay away from people on account of her "condition", and thinks of the Pantheon as some sort of afterlife. Either way, the Main House determined her tale was significant enough and had her ascended.
  • Among the deities interested in her ascension, Larry Talbot, aka the Wolf Man, stands out in particular. Larry is cursed into turning into a werewolf much like how Irena has to deal with her cat people curse, and both are horrified by how their transformations turn them into vicious beasts. They have promised each other that if one of them ever goes on a rampage, the other will do everything in their power to kill the other before innocent lives are claimed. It sounds pretty sinister for an alliance, but then Death Is Cheap is at play, which softens the blow.
  • It was through Larry that Irena came to know the likes of Bruce Banner and Remus Lupin, who likewise have problems with transforming into beings they can't quite control and which can cause untold damage. Both of them have high regard for Irena for refusing to embrace the viciousness of her panther form. Larry also warned Irena of a few deities that are better to steer clear from, such as Vincent Godfrey, who's known for absolutely detetsing werewolves and whose hatred has extended to all kinds of were-beings since entering the Pantheon. Irena got a taste of this first-hand when they ran into each other and he tried shooting her, but fortunately her panther form was agile enough to avoid doom. Larry also warned her about others like Count Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster and Godzilla, but while she can see where he's coming from with Dracula, she finds herself a bit more sympathetic to the Monster and Godzilla. It helps that she has never previously battled them.
  • All things considered, she seems pretty okay with living at the House of Beast surrounded by various types of animals. She often says that the roars of large felines are soothing to her, like the sound of pattering rain is to some. Incidentally, most animals back in her world were hostile to her due to sensing her nature, but the animals in the Pantheon tend to have sapience, which leads to them understanding Irena's plight, which leads to them being more tolerant of her. Irena can often be seen sketching the animals in the Pantheon. She occasionally has to be admonished not to litter the ground with her failed sketches.
  • Was surprised to be extended the friendship of Cassandra, the oracle of Greek myth. Probably because they both had a terrible time with trying to get people to believe their warnings, only to be dismissed. Fortunately, every deity who knows about her also knows about her cat people curse, so Irena doesn't really have problems with getting people to believe her anymore. Some deities even think her condition ought to be celebrated instead of feared, something she would have never thought possible (and she isn't sure whether she agrees).
  • Hircine, the progenitor of werebeasts in his universe, naturally took some interest in Irena, though not necessarily positive. The Daedric Prince is not happy with Irena for refusing to see her curse as a gift, and figures that making her spend a season or so in his Hunting Grounds will make her come around and embrace her true nature. Unfortunately for him, Irena's conviction that her curse is a curse makes her surprisingly mentally strong enough that she can successfully resist any of his attempts at beckoning her so far, although she generally tries to stay far away from such a powerful creature.
  • A rather unexpected ally for Irena turned out to be Elsa of Arendelle. As it happens, Elsa also struggled with a certain potentially dangerous supernatural trait that she was born with (in Elsa's case, it's ice powers). It caused her to shut herself out from other people to avoid hurting anyone, which is not too dissimilar from how Irena deals with her condition. There is one important difference in that Elsa eventually learned to control it, whereas Irena's never learning how to do so lead her to kill herself. For that reason, Elsa feels a lot for Irena and hopes that she can one day get her transformation under control and perhaps even use it for good.
  • Similarly to Elsa, Susan the Giant Woman took interest in Irena due to her own experience with struggling to accept the way she was after becoming a giantess. Her monster friends and teammates followed her lead and are pretty friendly to Irena, interacting with her in a similar way as with Susan when she was new to the team. Being accepted this much despite her dangerous transformation is rather moving for Irena.
  • Quite a few humans with a strong connection to felines predictably felt an affinity for Irena. There is Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, who thinks Irena just needs to loosen up and embrace the panther in her instead of stressing out over it. Irena is not sure she would have it in her to live as wildly and lawlessly as Selina does, not that she doesn't feel somewhat tempted at times, seeing how comfortable with herself Selina is. Irena also came into contact with Stella Hoshii and Ichigo Momomiya after the two expressed curiosity for her, and was introduced to the concept of the Cat Girl through them. She doesn't really get what the appeal is, though she likes the two fine, helped by the fact that they are generally nicer and less edgy than Selina.
  • Despite the events that transpired in her world, she is not exactly the sort of person that goes murderous when thinking that her relationship might be threatened. Again, Irena has no control over her panther form, which can be activated through her jealousy. Though, she might not be above taking advantage of it purely to scare off undesirables. It's probably a good thing that she consciously refuses to be in a romantic relationship since ascending (which is too bad for the deities who shipped her with Larry). For these reasons, Irena does not appreciate being lumped in with deities like Yuno Gasai and Alex Forrester, who go to legitimately insane and nightmarish extents to protect their relationships. Those two don't seem to have much of an opinion on Irena in turn. Presumably they're too busy obsessing over their business.

Doctor Zaius, God of Animals That Assume the Role of Humans
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Sacred Scrolls and the statue of the Lawgiver
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Anti-Villain, Arch-Enemy to George Taylor, Fantastic Racism towards humans because he thinks that they ultimately destroy any environment they settle in, Morally Ambiguous Doctorate
  • Domains: Primates, Knowledge, Bigotry
  • Allies: Koba
  • Enemies: Humans, Barbarella, The MST3K crew (specifically Mike and the robots), King K. Rool, Winston
  • Opposes: Grand United Alliance of Destruction
  • Disapproves of: Donkey Kong and his DK Crew, King Louie
  • Opposed by: Caesar
  • Respects: Mojo Jojo
  • Fascinated with: King Kong
  • Dr. Zaius is an orangutan politician who serves as the Minister of Science for the Ape Civilization, advancing the knowledge of Ape society while also maintaining the sacred traditions of the Ape religion. Secretly, he is aware of the true origins of simian society, and will stop at nothing to ensure that secret never gets out.
  • Because he’s from a society where apes serve as the superior species and humans are seen as mere animals, he was chosen by the Pantheon to represent Animal Is the New Man. Upon his ascension in the Pantheon, he was shocked to find out that the Pantheon isn’t the same as the society that he is used to. It took him some time to adjust himself to such a new place.
  • The reason behind his hatred towards humans is that he thinks that they ultimately destroy any environment they settle in. His society’s sacred scrolls even warn of "that harbinger of doom — man." He is disgusted to learn about the existence of the Grand United Alliance of Destruction. His ideology also puts him at odds with Barbarella given that the latter lives way into the future where Earth has become super-pacifistic and completely shuns war.
    • He seems to tolerate humans who were raised by animals such as Tarzan, Mowgli, George of the Jungle and San as they remind him of the humans of his home world. But even then, he still dislikes the fact that they're not quite as docile and primitive as the ones from his universe.
  • As far as his encounter with other primate deities go, his reaction varies with each one. He is disappointed with Donkey Kong and the rest of the DK crew as he felt that they are wasting their potential. He also considers King Louie to be a disgrace to the orangutans due to the latter’s obsession with the Red Flower. For obvious reasons, King K, Rool doesn’t like doesn’t like the orangutan the same way he doesn’t like the Kongs.
    • On the other hand, he seems to be fascinated by King Kong, as noted by one particular account in which he and the other apes embark on an expedition to Skull Island after seeing a Kong washed up on the shore next to the Statue of Liberty.
    • He respects Mojo Jojo as an equal given their similar ideology. However, Mojo is way of wary of him because one of his first plans was almost jeopardized when all the super-intelligent apes he created started planning their own global conquests.
    • As another primate scientist, Winston doesn’t approve of Zaius’ extreme hatred for humans, saying that there are truly wonderful humans out there that treated Winston well and respected him as his own creature and that Zaius should put all humans in the same bag. Another thing that bothers the gorilla is that Zaius is an unethical scientist..
    • He ended up encountering at least two other primates from his own universe (well...kind of). Caesar doesn’t like his beliefs as he felt that they contradict with his attempts to make peace between apes and humans. Koba, on the other hand, seems to be okay with the orangutan’s ideology and has allied with him.
  • The MST3K crew (specifically Mike and the robots) find themselves at odds with Dr. Zaius as they are reminded of the time they crashed in an Earth ruled entirely by apes (it involved Interspecies Romance by humans and apes to begin with and one of Mike's descendants was involved somehow). One of the apes there was an ape scientist named Bobo (who started off semi-levelheaded, but became more airheaded later on). Zaius didn’t take well on how that planet was destroyed by an atomic bomb as a result of Mike helping the apes repair said bomb.
  • Is a bit annoyed with several deities walking by him singing “Doctor Zaius! Doctor Zaius!”


Babar, God of Civilized Animals (Babar the King, King Babar, King of the Elephants)
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The flag of his kingdom
  • Theme Song: Babar Theme Song
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Anthropomorphic Shift, Civilized Animal, The Good King, Happily Married to Queen Celeste, Honorable Elephant, Reasonable Authority Figure, Royals Who Actually Do Something
  • Domains: Elephants, Royalty
  • Followers: Ernest and Celestine, Peter Rabbit
  • Heralds: Queen Celeste (his wife), Pom, Flora, Alexander, Isabelle (his children), Badou (his grandson)
  • Allies: Dumbo, Lazlo, Raj, and Clam, Ganesha, Bambi, Simba, Winnie the Pooh, Tarzan, Mowgli, Madame Foster, Nicholas St, North, Madeline, Pippi Longstocking, Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, Rango, Good-aligned gods in the House of Royalty
  • Enemies: Napoleon
  • Wary of: Most hunters in the Pantheon.
  • When Babar was a young elephant, his mother was shot by a hunter which led him to flee the jungle and into a large city, There, he befriended an elderly lady and learned to behave like a human. Upon returning to the jungle, Babar shared what he'd learned about human ways with his fellow elephants, and the elephants decided to construct a city, which they named Celesteville. Finally, Babar was made king of the elephants.
  • Originally, he was considered for the title of Honorable Elephant before that title was eventually given to Ganesha given that he ascended earlier. That said, the two seem to get along pretty well.
  • He is good friends with other elephant deities such as Dumbo and Raj. Through Raj, he befriended Lazlo and Clam, especially the former since he reminds him of his monkey friend Zephyr.
  • He is very wary of most hunters in the Pantheon since they remind him of the hunter that shot his mother. This led him to be allies with Bambi, another animal whose mother met a similar end. Is also allies with Simba; he finds his story to be a little similar to his own.
  • Winnie the Pooh was at first wary of the elephant because he initially mistook him for a heffalump, but it wasn't long before the misunderstanding was cleared up and he became friends with him. It might have something to do with his creator helping to introduce his stories to English-speaking audiences.
  • While he’s a nice guy for the most part, he doesn’t like Napoleon for his abuse of power over the rest of the animals on his farm. He hopes that his children won’t be manipulated by the pig’s actions.
  • He is on much friendlier terms with Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde due to both of them also being benevolent civilized animals. He will sometimes pay a visit to their temple.
  • Is welcomed by the House of Royalty, who respects him for being a benevolent king.
  • Was surprised to see Nicholas St. North in the Pantheon; seeing him reminded Babar of the time he helped his children invite the legendary Father Christmas to vacation in their home country and received a gift that promised a visit from him every year. Is also good friends with Madame Foster, who somehow reminds him of the Old Lady who helped him during his mortal life.
  • Fellow children’s book characters such as Madeline are happy to greet him in the Pantheon and enjoy talking to him about their respective adventures. Somehow, he also gets along well with Pippi Longstocking, probably because his voice reminds her of her father. It was easy for Mowgli to befriend Babar given his encounters with other elephants, such as Colonel Hathi and his son.

Medli, Goddess of Bird People (Sage of Earth)
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: The Rito Harp
  • Theme Songs: Earth God's Lyric; alternatively, Dragon Roost Island
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: One of the Rito, The Sage of Earth, Owner of the Rito Harp, Power Through The Earth God's Lyric, Smart for her age
  • Domains: Bird, Humanoid
  • High Priest: Garuda
  • Followers: The Teppan, the Haspur, Turians, Harper the Hummingbird, Bird Person
  • Allies: Link, Zelda, Darunia, Ruto, Midna, Agitha, Fi, Lana, Papi, Hawkgirl, The Villager, Edward von Muir
  • Enemies: Ganondorf, Cia, Zant, Ghiraham, Gengar, Beetlejuice, Spooky
  • Medli is one of the Rito, a race of bird-like people who are capable of flight through the scales of Valoo, their guardian deity. She served as Valoo's apprentice attendee and the successor to Laruto as the Sage of Earth.
  • She was dragged into a battle against Cia and her forces. She weaponizes the power of her harp much like the mysterious Sheik.
  • When she needs a headstart for flight, she'll ask to be picked up and thrown into the air. She used to be rather indiscriminate about who she asked, but some more mischievous (at best) deities would throw her into a wall, which caused her to see little Ritos and speak nonsense each time. Combined with the crash landings and the concussions, her friends had become worried for her. She's more careful who she asks for help now.
  • Medli was surprised to learn of bird-like people other than the Ritos, probably because she hadn't ventured far from the Great Sea. One fateful day, she sailed out to sea on her own for the first time, and found some new land. This land turned out to be a gateway into the pantheon.
  • She doesn't seem to like ghosts. Understandable, since Jalhalla, the leader of the Poes, was responsible for killing her predecessor, Laruto.
  • She makes occasional visits to the Villager's town and can be considered a resident of his place.
  • Her race were evolved from the fish-like Zora after the events of the Great Flood. Some questioned why a fish-like race would evolve into a bird-like race. The most popular theory about this in the pantheon is that the Goddesses intervened to protect the Zoras from the Sea, which was too hostile for Zora life. It was also due to the lack of fish that lived in the Sea, and to keep the sunken Hyrule a secret.
    • She met one of her ancestors, Ruto, while playing on top of her temple. As she succeeded a Zora Sage named Laruto as the Sage of Earth, Ruto showed some respect for her. The relation between the two could be speculated as grandmother and granddaughter, though Ruto don't like the idea of the former.
    • However, in one era, Rito were found living in a remote region of Hyrule, coexisting with the Zoras, the race they seem to have evolved from. In addition, the Rito of this era have adopted a more avian-like appearance than in the Wind Waker era. Questions of the Rito within the Era of the Great Sea and these Rito is currently being investigated.
  • In her off-time, Medli may play with her harp at the top of her temple. It's said that Edward agreed to play the harp with her, and thus, the two sometimes can be seen playing together.

  • Friendly Rivals: John Egbert, D.J. Detweiler
  • Opposes: The Chosen One, Robot Chicken, Cael Cyndar
  • Opposed By: Angel Bunny
  • Pities: All humans who have lost their parents
  • One day, a group of animals were seen hill surfing that ended with them covered in oil and chicken feathers. This has happened before, because it turns out they are Otis and his friends Pip, Pig, Peck and Freddy who are then summoned to the Court of the Gods for further judgement. They were afraid that they will be punished, but then they were relieved to hear that Otis will have a position in the Pantheons, who became delighted about it. But he doesn't want to leave his friends behind, so they designated them as his Heralds as per Otis' request. With Otis officially in the Pantheons, they are ready to goof off once more.
  • Napoleon tries to coax him into hating humans by using the same method he used on Judy Hopps, who luckily was in the area at the time. Judy saved him before he is fully convinced by Napoleon, who is now a big enemy in his list considering he is no more monstrous than the coyote Dag. He is very much neutral on humans anyway... unless they cowtip.
    • ...And then Dag got in at the same time Otis got ascended. Otis quickly fortifies his temple, the same barn he calls home and ask his Heralds to be on guard for Dag. The two won't be playing nice next time they meet.
    • Judy is glad that another animal did not fall into Napoleon's clutch since she saved him and she later introduced Otis to her partner, Nick Wilde. They both hit it off pretty quickly and they team up to goof off or to grab some money, which Judy left exasperated at their antics.
  • Has gotten along with fellow bovines Miltank and Tauros despite them not being conventional animals and this extends to their partners, Kaguya Nanbu and Baine Bloodhoof. The four are baffled as to why would a male cow have an udder which most females do have, though Otis says it's probably for a joke. Otis is fascinated by Baine's appearance of a humanoid bull which Baine replies it comes with being a minotaur.
    • After hearing how The Chosen One is treating cows badly from Miltank and Tauros, Otis stay far away from him. The Chosen One calls it a shame, given that they both share a creator.
    • Otis has also heard of Cael Cyndar eating livestock to power himself up from Miltank and despite hearing that Cael means well, he's still scared of Cael and his insistence on eating him.
  • Otis has warmed up to Fluttershy, which is not surprising given that she is a Friend to All Living Things; he even cheers her up at the barn every now and then. Her pet, Angel Bunny however doesn't like his compulsion to goof off a lot and gives him looks of disapproval whenvever they meet, which still does not deter Otis one bit.
  • Has befriended Chanticleer and Foghorn Leghorn due to them reminding him of his barnmate, Root the rooster; they even hang out and perform at the barn, which Chanticleer admits the place is more fun to sing at than his own temple. The Grand Duke of Owls hates Otis for siding with Chanticleer, and tries to appeal to his and the barn animals' habits of partying all night by promising him eternal nights just for such an activity. Otis angrily refuses his offer because that would mean his temple would be vulnerable to attacks, not to mention hearing of the Grand Duke's atrocities making him as monstrous as Dag.
  • Otis and Po quickly got along, seeing that Po lost his home village (as well as his mother) reminds Otis of losing his father Ben; they both get to cheering each other up with Po serving noodles at Otis' barn and in turn Otis gives Po all the food he wants. Babe also come by to have fun too, as well as hanging out with Pig. Nezu's appearance baffles Otis, though he is still welcome to the barn anyway.
    Otis: That mouse-guy-whatever... he seems nice.
  • Otis has not heard of human-looking animals before, though his housemate Ricotta Elmar resolves to change that by introducing him to her fellow kin from Flonyard; they have not heard of animals like him, but they are willing to befriend him anyway. Kaban and Serval also befriend him after some intial mix-up on whether he is a Friend or not.
  • Of course again, not all of Otis' confrontations are not positive. Besides Dag, the Grand Duke and Napoleon, the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog is so insane to the point that he ordered the barn a highly defensive protocol on the Rabbit, though the Toon Patrol is more manageable than him just by making them laugh and he's not letting Twitch go near the barn as well as Ratigan due to their respective atrocities they have committed.
    • Scary dinosaurs like Sharptooth and the Indominus rex scare him to no end and stay away from them as far as possible. If they attack the barn, well... he does have friends this time.
    • Animal cruelty is a line Otis feels should NEVER be crossed. Unfortunately, Dr. Alfred Drevis and Cruella De Vil have done so with their abuse on animals and for Dr. Drevis, taxidermy them making them more worse than Snotty Boy. Otis now hates them just as much, if not more than Dag. And that's not getting into the Grox problem...
  • He feels sorry for humans who lost their parents like he did, though he can't do anything to comfort them 'cause he is a talking animal and allnote . Instead, he left letters to those like Hilda and Tetsuya Tsurugi saying that there is someone out there who does feel for them (of course under anonymity).
  • One day, he was out pranking some human deities by himself... until he was spotted by John Egbert and T.J. Detweiler. Feeling vulnerable from getting caught, Otis prepared for the worst. Surprisingly, they are okay with him being a talking cow, seeing they have seen more stranger stuff going on around the place. Since then, the three prank nearly everyone they can and John and T.J. became Otis' Secret Secret Keepers of his Funny Animal status.
  • The heroic cats Firestar, Bluestar and Jayfeather are impressed that a cow is capable of fending off a coyote pack, with or without help, so they ally with him and he gives them as much milk as they want. They also warn him of Scourge, their enemy who is also as ruthless as Dag, which Otis accepts and agrees to look out for; one savage animal is supposed to be enough already.
  • No, he swears he is not transgender. No matter how much Robot Chicken is insisting that he is.
  • "I'll just say this; as long as I'm still kicking, no animal will be harmed inside that fence."
