Greater Gods

    Spawn 
Spawn, God of Nineties Anti Heroes (Al Simmons, The Guardian, Sad Man, Omega Spawn)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spawn7.jpg
  • Greater God (was once an Overdeity)
  • Symbol: His Emblem
  • Theme Song: "(Can't You) Trip Like I Do" by The Crystal Method and Filter
  • Alignment: True Neutral or Neutral Good, depending on the situation
  • Portfolio: The Atoner, Badass Baritone, Anti-Hero (particularly the kind seen in 90s comics), Charred Body, Badass Cape, Domestic Abuser (ironic), Good Is Not Nice But Dark Is Not Evil, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Military Superhero, Using Guns Despite Having Powers, Heel Realization
  • Domains: Undead, Magic, War
  • Allies: Dante Sparda, Ghost Rider, Jackie Estacado, Jason Todd, Eric Draven, Wolverine, Venom, Scorpion, The Guy, Jax Briggs, Batman
  • Rivals: Kratos, Heihachi Mishima, Link
  • Enemies: Satan (both), YHVH, Lucifer, Joker, Kefka, Nekron, Four Horsemen, Loki's Brood, The Lich, Lex Luthor, Mundus, Nightmare
  • Odd Friendship: Yomi, Goliath
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork(?): Many of the Good-aligned Angels
  • A product of the nineties in which many of their heroes went Darker and Edgier, Spawn exemplifies many elements of that time; wearing nearly all black, being an Anti-Hero, using guns, willingness to kill, and dealing with darker themes. However, he was popular enough to survive through the nineties and make a proper place in the comic world.
  • Once a man named Al Simmons, he commit his first murder at the age of 19 when he killed a molester who was molesting his little brother. It went down hill from there. He became a cruel mercenary who took his frustration out on his wife, Wanda. Ironically enough, it was only when he was murdered and became a Hell-Spawn when he realized how much of a heel he was and wanted to atone for his sins. Though, he is still willing to kill people, even if only the bad guys.
  • Despite what others may think, Spawn can work well with many of the good-aligned Angels in the pantheon. In fact, he dated one back in his home world.
  • Actually became close friends with Yomi. This is because Spawn protected many homeless people back in his world. Yomi respects him for that. She is, however, upset that he won't eat her bean sprouts.
    • He also found an ally in Goliath, who too is a protector of humanity. Many have noted with interest how much the two sound alike.
      • Whenever Spawn uses his suit to transform himself into his former human self, he has been remarked by others to look a bit like Jax Briggs. The Joker, on the other hand, found him similar to a mob boss he killed once.
  • Spawn's most notable feature is his suit, which is actually a demon named Leetha of the 7th House of K. It grants Spawn the ability to fly and use his chains and cape as weapons while feeding off of his ectoplasm.
  • Opposes both YHVH and Lucifer as their actions remind him a bit of his world's version of God and Satan. Though, the latter two are saints compared to the former two.
  • Being acquainted with the Soul Series deities, is sometimes invited to battle them, which he does by turning his cape into an axe. For some reason, he gets annoyed when Heihachi Mishima and Link show up too.
  • Participated in a Death Battle against Kratos prior to his own ascension with Spawn winning the bout. Zeus was pleased with the result of the battle. As were Hera, Ares, and one of the two Hades. Now that Spawn is in the Pantheon, Kratos is itching for a rematch.
  • Was once so powerful that he actually outranked both the God and Satan of his world. It was during this state that he actually stopped the apocalypse and reshaped the universe.
  • Despite having incredible powers, Spawn mainly relies on his guns. The reason being too much use of his powers drains his ectoplasm, and were it to be completely spent, he'd get sent right back to Hell.
  • With the exception of Dante Sparda, Spawn seems to coincidentally bump into other dark-and-edgy anti-heroes, such as Shadow and Ryuko Matoi. Many have joked that their "edginess" attract one to the other. They aren't amused.
  • Hates both The Joker and Lex Luthor as the two remind him of both The Clown and Jason Wynn.
  • Became allies with both The Guy and Venom as they were brought to life by the same creator. He also likes Merlin, who reminds him of Cogliostro.
  • Once thought to have come back from the dead thanks to the love of his wife. Turns out it was more out of guilt for abusing her and intentionally causing her to have a miscarriage, the latter coming back to bite him later in life. He is, however, atoning for his horrible mistakes.

Intermediate Gods

    HK-47 
HK-47, God of Token Evil Teammates
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hk-47wikiart_1892.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: An Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope
  • Alignment: Originally Neutral Evil, is leaning toward Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Ensemble Dark Horse, Laughably Evil, Sociopathic Hero, Killer Robot, Token Evil Teammate
  • Domains: Assassin, Robot, Death, Violence
  • Master: Revan
  • Allies: the House of War (they love his definition of Love), Bender (he appreciates the term "Meatbag"), Belkar Bitterleaf, The Comedian, Neopolitan.
  • Opposed By: the House of Love (they don't like his definition of Love), human or non-robotic members of the pantheon (they don't appreciate the term "Meatbag")
  • Commonality Connection: E-123 Omega
  • Is on surprisingly good terms with Legion, despite their polar opposite views on organic-synthetic relations. They play paintball on the weekends, and while HK appreciates having a Worthy Opponent in a synthetic who is just as skilled with a rifle as he is, he remains baffled as to why Legion always sides with the "meatbag" team.
  • Is also an associate of KOS-MOS, whose ability for large scale destruction of "Meatbags" he is admittedly envious of. Despite this, he considers her lack of enjoyment in the undertaking a point of weakness and has been trying to coax it out of her.
  • Several members of the GUAG who were disgusted by him once installed a pacifist chip inside him. Horrified by the results, they promptly uninstalled it. 47 considered the experience a nightmare, though to his credit he does admit that having that chip installed gave him a small insight into why many prefer peace to war.
  • Some have noticed that ascended follower E-123 Omega shared some of HK-47's traits during one of his adventures. HK-47 sometimes recruits the robot for select missions.
  • Is happy to see his former follower Belkar ascend. The two certainly enjoy each other's bloodlust.
  • Despite being, you know, violently evil, he's programmed to follow his good master, and thus the GUAE is forced to admit that he's out of reach for the moment.
  • Despite newer HK models showing up, HK 47 has proven to be cunning and snarky in deposing many of his newer brethren.
  • Learned of a successor of sorts to him called Mr. Bones. HK-47 entertained the idea of making him his High Priest, but was disappointed with his untimely death.

    Iroque 
Iroque, Goddess of Reformation Through Brainwashing (Indigo-1)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-Green_Lantern_Issue-47_Teaser_1985.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: The Symbol of the Indigo Tribe
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (formerly Neutral Evil)
  • Portfolio: Heel–Face Brainwashing which she herself was subjected to, Former Sociopath, Good Feels Good, Heel–Face Turn, Good Is Not Soft
  • Domains: Light, Compassion, Redemption, Brainwashing
  • Allies: Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, Hakumen, Madoka Kaname, Zatanna Zatara, The Phantom Thieves of Hearts (Ren Amamiya, Morgana, Ryuji Sakamoto, Ann Takamaki, Futaba Sakura, Yusuke Kitagawa, Makoto Niijima, Haru Okumura)
  • Rivals: Bruce Wayne/Batman
  • Enemies: Melkor, Nyarlathotep, William "Black" Hand, Nekron, SCP-993
  • Conflicting Opinion: Philemon, Whis
  • Ascended to the Pantheon upon the discovery of the Indigo Light's properties, and the revelation that she ordered it done to Black Hand as well as all the members of the Indigo Tribe and briefly Sinestro. While many of the GUAG's members were initially leary about letting a brainwasher and sociopath join them, she was accepted in upon the discovery that she now felt guilt even without the Indigo Ring's influence.
  • Has become The Dreaded to the GUAE's more sociopathic and amoral members, due to the Heel–Face Brainwashing powers of the Indigo Light. While many of the GUAG's members are slightly unnerved by the idea of using brainwashing, even on their enemies, some of the more pragmatic members have supported the idea of weaponizing the rings against the GUAE.
  • Gets along well with Madoka Kaname, who sees Iroque's actions and repentance as proof that there is hope for even the worst sinners to be redeemed.
  • Upon her ascension, went to see Hal Jordan in the House of Heroes, due to him being the other (good) representative of the Lantern Corps. The two had a discussion on the Pantheon and, it is rumored, have made plans to ascend more of the good Lanterns to aid them.
  • Has a great dislike for all Fallen Heroes, viewing them as willfully turning away from the light despite being born to it, unlike the Indigo Tribe, who were, in a sense "born in the dark."
  • Has a rivalry with Batman, despite both being heroes, as he heavily frowns upon those who use brainwashing due to Identity Crisis. Iroque, in turn, is surprised by his willingness to prepare to backstab his own allies but being unwilling to use other unethical means. She has bonded somewhat with Zatanna over this, though.
  • Melkor and Nyarlathotep have both made eliminating her a top priority due to the Indigo Light she carries, whether to eliminate the ring along with her or to steal it as a weapon of their own. While it is unknown what would happen if a Made of Evil being such as Nyarlathotep came into contact with one of the Indigo Tribe's rings, nobody is very interested in finding out.
  • Respects the likes of Philemon and Whis, who don't allow their beliefs and job parameters to preclude them from guiding mortal heroes and warriors to do extraordinary things with their powers, but still finds all these noninterference clauses to be utterly annoying. That said, she has pleasantly noted that the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, Philemon's latest clients by proxy, take similar methods as she does to the fight against evil.

    John Marston 
John Marston, God of Retired Outlaws
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f26f0710b35ab69c6c8327f0f1616cc0.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His hat with a revolver by its side
  • Theme Song: (Theme from) Red Dead Redemption or Born Unto Trouble
  • Alignment: Heroic Neutral (but can have Evil tendencies depending on actions)
  • Portfolio: Former outlaw willing to go through all kinds of obstacles and fighting off all kinds of opponents from wild beasts to outlaws to armies to see his family safe, Dead Eye ability, atoning for his criminal past, living off the land, Hunter Trapper, unwilling participant in revolutionary struggles no matter which side he picks, a loving husband and good father, uneducated but very intelligent and quick with a snappy criticism, allows himself to be killed to have his family spared, Animals Hate Him
  • Domains: The Old West, Family, Guns, Anti-heroism
  • Heralds: Abigail & Jack Marston (his wife and son as they were also former outlaws)
  • Allies: John Wayne, The Man with No Name, Jean Valjean, Vash the Stampede, The Farmer, Johnny Appleseed, Applejack, Lelouch vi Britannia, Stephen Colbert, Chris & Claire Redfield, Leon Kennedy, Jill Valentine, Chie Satonaka, Moe Syzlak, Asura, Bryan Mills, Edward Newgate, Eirin Yagokoro, The Monster Hunters, Niko Bellic
  • Rivals: Lucky Luke, Yosemite Sam, Jesse McCree
  • Enemies: Evil gods in the House of Beast
  • Opposes: Most deities of the House of Justice (especially Inspector Javert, Carmelita Fox and Miko Miyazaki), Tewi Inaba, The Four Horsemen
  • Feared by: The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog
  • Ascended after the events of his life more specifically, taking a stand against an entire army regiment led by a corrupt law official to give his family time to escape and going down fighting to the end. He was upset at first at no longer having his family, but the Judge said that being also former outlaws, they will ascend as his heralds. John was surprised at the news that his son was an outlaw (since his wife was a given as she too once ran in his old gang), and was dismayed at hearing his son Jack taking revenge against the corrupt official who had him killed by killing him in return and following in his footsteps. He wanted to be reunited with his son, but not in this manner and blamed himself for not teaching him better. When he saw Jack, he said not a word despite Abigail’s pleas.
  • Even though they don’t have any power or authority in the Pantheon being mere heralds, it is not a good idea to threaten John’s wife and kid as he will immediately go Papa Wolf on the unlucky deity with a Dead Eye-infused Evans Repeater salvo. It’s this reason he is allied with the League of Extreme Fatherhood.
  • Because of his past, most obstinate members of the House of Justice would want nothing more than see him pay horribly for his crimes. While it is true that John agrees that he can’t change his past and tries to atone for it which was the reason for his Heroic Sacrifice, he lives for his family now. He is at least glad he has a friend in Jean Valjean to counter many of the accusations there.
  • His “temple” in the House of Ambiguity is more or less a grander version of his homestead in Beecher’s Hope, now a magnificent ranch rivaling that of his friends, the MacFarlenes, complete with a mighty herd of cattle, horses and other livestock, fields of wondrous crops (helped with assistance from the Farmer), beautiful orchards of apples (donated by Johnny Appleseed) and even a saloon for his friends in the Pantheon. The cows from his temple are considered sacred and their milk is very nutritious. Being a friendly sort, he generally ships jugs and cartons of his cows’ milk to the House of Food and Elysium Academy for consumption or cooking use.
    • Even though the saloon is not as fancy as Moe’s Tavern, it is still a simple place to have homemade Western-style cuisine (courtesy of Abigail’s cooking and the homegrown meat and crops), cold drinks at the bar, or a good game of Poker or Liar’s Dice (with a horseshoes pitch outside). John Wayne and the Man with No Name (being paragons of the West) hang out here. Chie Satonaka is also a frequent patron after she gave her seal of approval towards their steaks. Moe has a good relation with John and allows his followers/assistants to tend the bar there.
  • Applejack likes to visit John’s ranch as it reminds her of her home at Sweet Apple Acres. Abigail and Jack took a liking to her and take care of her as if she was one of their horses. To the surprise of many, she tends to enter the saloon and engage in a round of Liar’s Dice or two. Needless to say, she is very bad at it (she’s the Element of Honesty, after all). When it comes to Horseshoes, however…
  • Lucky Luke paid him a visit hearing about his former outlaw ways but stopped short of bringing him in after seeing how he has changed and meeting his family. Still, he was curious about John's shooting ability and challenged him to a duel which John accepted. While Luke won, he was impressed with the John's skill and became good-natured rivals. Luke was even glad there was a saloon in the Pantheon, in which he could have a good meal, which Abigail is happy to have ready for him.
  • The Kombatant gods tend to give him odd looks as he somewhat reminds them of a certain mercenary under Kotal Kahn’s employment. John merely shrugs it off.
  • He is quite knowledgeable about certain plants which he uses as makeshift medicines, which impressed Poison Ivy. What impressed Pamela even more is that John is completely immune to her pheromones. He is that dedicated to his wife Abigail.
    • It was being so knowledgeable about medicinal plants that he became allies with Eirin Yagokoro, who is glad to find someone able to find good herbs and plants for use in her medicines.
  • Even though he doesn’t like to brag, he is very very good with guns. His special ability is the Dead Eye, which not only allows him to continuously fire all the available rounds of a gun before reloading, but also gives him an impressive invincibility buff while it is active. Its only drawback is that it doesn’t last too much. Still, the skill has helped him not only against fighting whole bands of outlaws and army regiments but also packs of wild animals.
    • Marcus Kincaid offered some of his Pandoran-based weapons to John in order to test how the Dead Eye would work with them. While John had no affinity for the futuristic weapons, he, however, liked the Jakobs brand of guns as they reminded him more of the weapons of his time.
  • Aside from defeating outlaws and doing some bounty hunting, John is also an accomplished hunter, which his Dead Eye ability helps out when going after extremely dangerous prey such as native cougars and bears of his world. He, of course, is cautioned to watch himself when going to the House of Beasts. The Monster Hunters, naturally, made him an honorary member.
    • Stephen Colbert also holds him in high regard for fighting the good fight against the Bear Menace. (If only he ever heard of the time John faced and killed zombie bears…)
  • After hearing of his hunting prowess, some gods (particularly allies to the Trollkaiger) told him about a certain special rabbit in the Sub-House of Mammals. When John met the Rabbit of Caerbannog, he was nearly mauled when it struck him unaware. Taking out his Buffalo Rifle and loading it with blessed phosphorous bullets, he went into Dead Eye mode and…'''BOOM'''. All that was left of the Rabbit were some of its fangs, fur, and one of its feet, which he collected as trophies. The Trollkaiger (who hoped John would get massacred) wasn’t deterred, because killing the Rabbit would bring upon John the ire of Tewi Inaba, who naturally was upset at someone killing her subordinate, and was ready to curse John with bad luck. They also counted on her being so mad that she would be unwilling to listen to John explain himself, which she was. However, Eirin appeared at just the right moment and told Tewi to hold off from cursing him until John carefully explained the situation. She proved to be the Spanner in the Works for Trollkaiger, because once John was done explaining, Tewi and Eirin realized it was that group that was behind this. Needless to say, Trollkaiger suffered a bout of bad luck for quite some time. Tewi told John he could keep the fangs, fur, and rabbit’s foot, but warned him to never again go after the Rabbit. The Rabbit itself, being a deity in this pantheon, was quickly revived, but now has a deep-rooted fear of the ex-outlaw.
  • In an alternate universe, John was caught in the middle of a Zombie Apocalypse and actually survived it, dealing with not just regular zombies, but also zombified wild animals as well. This has earned him the respect of the ascended BSAA members.
    • The Four Horsemen were actually shocked to learn John was able to break and tame their mounts from that alternate verse. Most of the Horsemen consider him a nuisance, except for Death, who already had a history with John; he met him several times in his quest in the guise of a stranger with a top hat and mustache. John considers him a bothersome pest.

    Kaito Kumon/Kamen Rider Baron 
Kaito Kumon, God of Nominal Heroes (Kamen Rider Baron, New Generation Rider Baron, Monsieur Banane, Kameko, Lord Baron, Aka-Rider)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaitokumon_5341.jpg
Kamen Rider Baron 
note 
  • Headbutting Warriors With: All Ascended Toku Heroes, Satellizer el Bridget, Alex (Street Fighter)
  • Rivals: Oren Pierre Alfonzo/Kamen Rider Bravo, Lu Bu, Yuma Tsukumo (Half this, half Odd Friendship)
  • Enemies: The entire members (and employed members) of SHOCKER, the GUAE Mecha Cohort, Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke, Lock Dealer Sid/Kamen Rider Sigurd, Lord Djibril, Redyue, Nui Harime, Ragyo Kiryuin, Char Aznable, Jerid Messa, Haman Karn, Gilgamesh, Nobuyuki Sugou/Oberon the Fairy King, Raven Branwen, Anyone who uses their strength to oppress the weak. (even Lucifer whenever he does)
  • Opposes: Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa
  • Respects: Saitama, Satsuki Kiryuin, Kamille Bidan, Emu Hojo/Kamen Rider Ex-Aid
  • Wary of: Kuroto Dan/Kamen Rider Genm
  • Worthy Opponent: Kouta Kazuraba/Kamen Rider Gaim
  • Ascended after his final battle with Kouta. He often can be seen near the House of Combat challenging other gods to show him their strength. However, he found a worthy rival in the form of Lu Bu.
  • When he first heard of her, he openly despised Satsuki Kiryuin due to her policies. After hearing the full story, however, he came to respect her for having similar ideals to himself.
  • Has nothing but respect for Kouta, acknowledging him as being truly strong. However, He does desire to test his might against the Man of the Beginning again.
  • Kaito gets along surprisingly well with both Sasuke Uchiha, and Vegeta, as both three of them had a common rivalry with idealistic heroes such as Kouta, Goku, and Naruto.
    • Also gets along with Seto Kaiba as both men were orphaned during their childhood days who later became worthy opponents to their respective rivals. Kaito makes him wonder that Kaiba's voice reminding him of Redyue.
      • He was NOT happy with what happened to Kaiba. The CEO got sent with nightmares of killing someone, believing himself insane, got brainwashed by Yugi Muto to kill Kairi and that triggered the Undead Uprising and cause the near-destruction of the Pantheon. While he understands that Kaiba wasn't in the right state of mind, it still got him really upset to see what happened. And don't let him get started with that Quantum Cube incident...
  • Despite Mitsuzane's work towards redemption, Kaito still does not trust him. When he learned of "Project:Alternate!Gentaro", he was more amused at Alternate Gentaro exposing his power when he gut Mitsuzane and bringing despair and destruction to prove his worth.
  • Unlike most Gods, Kaito believes what Saitama says about how he got his great power and respects him for it.
  • Call him a Banana at your own risk. The last one to do so was Nui Harime who called Kaito "Monsieur Banane". The result was Nui gaining Kaito's undying hatred, and any gods who witnessed what followed being sworn to secrecy.
    • Believe it or not, the first one to say that is none another than Oren, whom he fought occasionally in the mortal plane.
  • Much to the surprise of many gods Kaito is actually a rather skilled pâtissier, which is surprising considering he likely cannot taste anything he makes.
  • He would rather no-one bring up the "Fresh Lockseed" Incident.
  • Avoids the House of Sports and any Soccer related gods for reasons he doesn't quite understand. Or to be more accurate, remember.
  • Kaito's temple, rather surprisingly, contains a Shinto shrine similar to the one that existed in Zawame when he was a child.
  • Kaito has a intense hatred towards Masato Kusaka due to his bad reputation among the lines of his brethren Secondary Riders, and his actions hitting too close to home by reminding him all too much of what Mitsuzane had done in the past. He's also aware that even Micchy doesn't like him either for roughly the same reasons.
    • He also disliked how Go Shijima seemed similar to both of them, having a similar attitude towards Roidmudes like Kusaka towards Orphenochs, becoming jealous towards one of his fellow riders like Mitsuzane, and eventually turning against his fellow riders with the intent of destroying them, also like Mitsuzane. However, he at least acknowledges the reasons for these. His father was the one who created the Roidmudes, and thus caused their worldwide attack on humanity, Chase is a Roidmude himself (although it's still not a good enough excuse since the latter reformed), and was apparently brainwashed into fighting his allies against his will. It sort of helps that Go wasn't brainwashed, but had a legitimate reason for his actions, can now tell apart good Roidmudes from the bad, and is practically redeeming himself faster than it took Mitsuzane.
  • Remember that one of his allies is that similarly named Kaito Tenjo? Well, his rival Yuma Tsukumo ascended and Kaito seems like he will resume that rivalry on his behalf. Though the young duelist reminds Kaito a little of Kouta and is insanely powerful (given the right conditions) to boot so he's still waiting to see if Yuma will be able to have a real battle with him. Maybe if the boy learned how to Action Duel...
    • And now the other Kaito has ascended too...
  • Even though Kaito was willing to destroy all of humanity, those ambition has been totally abandoned once he ascended. Half of the reason for it is because he did lose to Kouta and is willing to fight to protect the Earth and his view.

  • Conflicting Opinion: Kaito Kumon/Kamen Rider Baron (Marvelous only)
  • Known as the 35th Super Sentai team and the "Sentai Counterpart" of Tsukasa Kadoya/Kamen Rider Decade, the Gokaigers are a group of space pirates who traveled to Earth in search of the "Greatest Treasure in the Universe", with them possessing "Ranger Keys" this allows them to transform into their ranger forms as well as every past Super Sentai teams, using these powers in order to battle the Space Empire Zangyack which was bent for universal domination. Along the way, they were joined by an Earthling named Gai Ikari who is known to be a Super Sentai Fanboy with his vast knowledge on every Sentai teams before them.
  • Upon ascension, the Gokaigers were seen walking out of Cosmos' shrine within the House of Heroes, bearing the official documentation for joining the GUAG. When asked about this, Marvelous answered that the team was now seeking "The Greatest Treasure in the Pantheon", something to put Earth's greatest treasure to shame. The easiest way to get the information they sought was with the good guys. That's the only reason they're getting involved in any fighting.
  • The group also gets along well with the crew of the Straw Hat Pirates since both of them seeks their respective treasures. Also, both the Gokaigers and the Straw Hat Pirate crews had a lot of things in common. Since then, both pirate crews would help each other, especially whenever they're going on a treasure hunt.
  • Of course due to being a team of pirates, they have gotten into several confrontations against Sakazuki, who has vowed to erase every pirate in existence. They find that he's nothing more than another insane killer and is simply using the law as an excuse to kill people he just doesn't like.
  • Enraptured by the sudden appearance of a pirate-themed Sentai team, the Gokaigers were cornered one day by the ToQgers, one of the Sentai teams to appear after their own adventures. After some (reluctant) storytelling, the ToQgers used their imagination to create a set of ToQger Ranger Keys for their new allies to use.
    • Also, many of the ascended heroic Kamen Riders gave the Gokaigers the privileges to transform into different Rider forms with Kouta Kazuraba uses his godly powers to create Rider Keys in their likeness for them to use.
  • As a man knowledgeable in all things Sentai, Gai naturally found himself elated to meet Dr. Oliver as equals, meeting the most famous Power Ranger. He has been trying to convince the team to Gokai Change into the "Team Six" formation in honor of Tommy. However, he's hit a snag since only five would work. Gai has started to get the autographs of the Power Rangers.
  • Don, Ahim and Gai had a sympathy towards Takatora Kureshima, a fellow Token Good Teammate, after knowing of him being betrayed by his so-called comrades led by Ryoma Sengoku. Speaking of the Mad Scientist, the Gokaigers gained an ire towards Ryoma due to his own agenda of grasping the Forbidden Fruit for his own gain which makes him no different to their worst nemesis Basco.
  • While roaming across the pantheon with their Gokai Galleon, they met several deities in the pantheon, such as Belldandy, Suzaku Kururugi, and Nanoha Takamichi. At first, due to their familiar voices, they had mistaken them for being Insarn, Jealousto, and Navi respectively, however after they discussed their respective backgrounds, they became allies ever since.
    • Also at the same time, the Gokaigers became enemies with I-No after they notice of her connections with their enemy and Zangyack member Insarn.
  • The team is very close allies with the Suite Pretty Cures since both groups had their adventures in the same year.
  • Gai was very close friends with fellow Otakus like Yayoi Kise and Ryusei Date, as the former was an aspiring manga artist and fan of Anime, Toku, and Robots, who became a Pretty Cure and the latter is fan of Super Robots in general. As the trio discussed their interests, they decide to hold a Convention dedicated to Anime, Toku, and Robot genre.
  • Joe is somewhat impressed with Kirito and Asuna's swordsmanship skills while he encountered them in the New Aincrad, also he had once dueled them in a 2-on-1 match while showing off his own skills. As both Kirito and Asuna witness his skills in battle, they were also impressed with him they became friends with him ever since.
  • Like the Gorengers and the ToQgers before, the team is very close allies with the Kids Next Door as the Gokaigers were impressed with their technology and teamwork even though they were just kids. Also, both Don and Numbuh Two helped each other as they find new ways to create and provide newer weapons for them to use.
  • Both Marvelous and Joe were somewhat close friends with both Kyoko Sakura and Sayaka Miki respectively, both had found them interesting with their respective skills and their similarities between them. They also pointed out that they might be their magical girl counterparts, much to the girl's surprise.
  • They had a sympathy towards a fellow pirate named Miss Fortune, as both felt the same way due to their pasts of losing the person that was important to them. Also, Marvelous took an interest in her as the two might have a charisma challenge someday.
  • They found an unlikely ally with Lelouch vi Britannia since he also had experience battling tyrannical empires just like them. They also expressed their hate towards Lelouch's father Charles as the tyrannical emperor makes him no different to the likes of Ackdos Gil.
    • Ahim gets along quite well with Ange as she was saddened after learning of her predicament and was very upset of how people treated her like a monster due to her nature as a Norma. This makes her enemies with Embryo as well since he's the reason why the Normas were seen as monsters.
  • The crew also develops a rivalry of sorts with Jack Sparrow after the God of Piracy gained an interest in them and Jack wants them to prove their worth of what being a pirate is all about.
  • The Gokaigers were not pleased that their nemesis Basco was present in the pantheon for a long time since their last encounter. Worst of all, he was part of the Trollkaigers whose group consists of malicious trolls that commit atrocities in the pantheon. Because of this, the Gokaigers were determined to stop Basco and his band of trolls.
  • The Gokaigers also became enemies with the Psycho Rangers due to them being a group of evil ranger teams, this makes worst that Ahim develop a rivalry with Psycho Pink.
  • As they fought, the Gokaigers made several enemies in the pantheon, such as Monokuma and Junko Enoshima due to their reputation of initiating the "School Life of Mutual Killings" at Hope's Peak Academy, Ragyo Kiryuin for messing with her daughters for her own amusement, and Rau Le Creuset for being a warmonger who commits a lot of crimes in his own universe. Because of this, the Gokaigers were determined to stop their evil acts in the pantheon.
    • With Ace's ascension and his and Luffy's encounter with Monokuma and his mastermind, the two have been joining them on their quest, especially with them stopping the high-school killing games.
  • Marvelous had a conflict of sorts with Kaito Kumon as the Armored Rider's antiheroism and his appearance reminding of himself for a lot of reasons. However, Kaito's motivation of breaking the world's status quo through the Forbidden Fruit has made Marvelous cannot accept Kaito's ways.
  • After she heard the best piano music in a very long time, Ahim wanted to know who the pianist was. After searching, she became very good friends with Bulk and Skull.
  • No matter what curry shop he dines in at the House of Food, Marvelous will never finish a bowl of curry in peace. Something will come up.

  • Frequently seen with Flonne, Goddess of Love Freaks, but insists that it's just so he can throw the Pantheon of Love off guard and destroy them once and for all. Nobody believes him.
  • Has a very.....complicated....relationship with the Sisterhood. On one hand, he sides with Homura and believes in "Might Makes Right". On the other hand, he protects them because his friend is with them, has a VERY good reason for where his sympathies lie mainly due to emotional trauma suffered from selfless sacrifice (from when he was biologically 4 years old no less), and also thinks the machinations of "The Great Upheaval" went way, WAY too far.
  • Was once on Dante's hit list, but after a rather violent altercation and a stern talking-to from Flonne the demon-hunter decided to just keep an eye on Laharl for now.
  • Due to his great fear of breasts that happens to be above the average size, he has yet to win a fight against the more... endowed female inhabitants of the Pantheon...yet.
    • And then there was that one time he became a rather endowed woman. Trollkaiger are constantly bombarding him with pictures of his sexier alter ego, hoping to see him vomit his own organs out.
    • Then there was the time Shion pulled the "Angel Mort" stunt on him.
  • Would like to tell the Toku Base (especially the Power Rangers) that no, he is NOT related to Rita Repulsa, even though some claim they sound a lot alike.
  • Is taking part in "The Pantheonic Rebellion to back up Flonne.
  • One day, Laharl called out Mao and challenged him to a guffaw battle, wanting to show that his laugh was the best after the last guffaw battle was interrupted. However, their contest caught the attention of other laughing gods and goddesses and soon, everyone from Iori Yagami to the Joker stepped up and tried to drown out everyone's laugh with their laugh, even to the point of losing air. By the end, many had to be rushed to the House of Health and Diseases to get treated for sore throat. The entire episode became known as the "Great Guffaw War".

  • Dislikes: Jessica Rabbit, Crimson Viper
  • Lina Inverse is a young and avaricious Black Magician Girl from the land of Zephilia, existing within Lucifer's World of Chaos. Despite her mere age of 15, she is known throughout said world as one of the most powerful and feared sorceresses in all the land, so much so that she can apparently frighten dragons to the point that they side step her "out of sheer revulsion" (which actually does happen in the pilot to her series), infamous for her short temper, skill with her Dragon Slave blasts, and the massive collateral damage that results when she fights the forces of evil.
  • Lina prefers to focus her magical rage on living creatures and relieve them of their valuables, usually pursuing power and riches for herself, but gets dragged into saving the world along the way. She gains immense attack bonuses against dragons and Money Spiders, similar to how the legendary devil hunter Dante gets stronger through skills, red orbs, etc. acquired during his adventures battling demons and the undead. Despite their disparity in choice of targets and her greedy disposition, the two met and became friends very quickly once both were in the Pantheon, due to their interests and attitudes being similar yet different enough to balance out.
  • Lina's friendship with Dante, as well as her association with a group called the Sorcerer's Guild in her universe, would be a large part of the reason why she was occasionally brought in to help out with the Hunter Squad of which Dante was a member. She even helped him pay off his debt to his associate Lady. That said, there was a fairly long period of time where she hadn't been around said team or even seen much in the Pantheon, having gotten lost looking for treasure. During this time which the squad had added two new members, got a new base, and changed its name to the Night Hand. While a bit miffed at this upon her return, she mellowed out once Dante assured her that she wasn't being replaced.
  • Hanging out with Dante and helping out the Night Hand also reminds her a bit of her self-proclaimed protector Gourry, as well as her parents — while the latter currently own a grocery store, her father is an ex-mercenary while her mother is an ex-sorceress.
  • Dragons steer clear of her whenever possible. Because of course they do. Her Black Mage equivalent of the Kamehame Hadoken was literally created to destroy dragons, and she has a pretty steep kill count of both dragons and surrounding towns based on said attack alone. She's banned from the Pantheon Bestiary's Dragons sub-house after Danaerys launched a petition to that effect which every single dragon therein supported, both good and bad.
    • She'll oppose all the top evil dragons in that sub-house when they venture out of there and cause trouble, but the two most obvious and heated of her draconic foes are Smaug and Bowser. The Greatest of Calamities is currently hoarding a lot of stolen treasure and she hopes to take him down and get paid with some of that loot, and she wouldn't dare allow the King of Koopas to kidnap a "fair maiden" like herself. Interestingly in the latter's case, he insists she is no "fair maiden" and capturing her isn't worth the trouble; she claims he's lying to get her guard down, but her friends know she's actually pissed at the insult.
  • Is currently hatching a plan to get her "precious" thing back from Marisa of the Magic House, and has consulted with Carmen Sandiego and Robin Hood to do it without killing her (she also plans on picking up some of Marisa's spell cards to add to her arsenal).
  • Despite her status as an Intermediate Goddess, she is capable of taking down almost any deity in the Pantheon by using her unique ability to draw on the power of the Lord of Nightmares. However, she is extremely reluctant to actually do so.
    • She has managed to kill one of the seven shards of Ruby Eye Shabranigdu, who is essentially a demon god, and the fused form of Dark Star Dugradigdu and Night Dragon Vorpheed, who are each as strong as Ruby Eyes full form when on their own, without calling on The Lord of Nightmares.
  • Legends have it that she was once defending some sort of Sentinel Ancient and had grown fond to the job. Lina currently didn't quite remember doing so, until she met up the other Goddess with the same name and they eventually became friends thanks to their proud attitude. Of course, Lina's pissed that this other Lina is a lot more attractive physique-wise (largely due to being older), but she feels more content because her Dragon Slave is far more destructive than what the other Lina could muster.
  • Lately, fellow dragonslayer Ornstein has shown a good amount of interest in Lina, and wants her to replace him as one of the Four Knights of Gwyn due to the fact he's seemingly being slowly consumed by the Abyss. Lina is more than eager to take his place, but Ornstein has also set his eyes on the Fairy Tail Guild's ascended members, who are none the happier about it.
  • One of the things she fears most are slugs. Piccolo, Saonel and Pirina make her extremely uncomfortable due to being the strongest members of a humanoid slug race. Escargon likes to take advantage of this to sneak up on Lina and scare her in order to let off steam whenever his boss King Dedede has him stressed out. She also doesn't want to get anywhere near the One Piece deities' temples due to their use of transponder snails for communication.
  • Her other great fear is her big sister Luna, a Knight of Ceifeed who punished her extremely harshly for an indecent prank she tried to pull at one point. Upon hearing about the recently-ascended girl called Akatsuki who tends to shut up perverts and other nuisances with hard knees, she hopes Akatsuki never hears about what she did to Luna.
    • Despite being terrified of Luna and others like her, she's really Not So Different in the "intense punishments" regard. She's a big believer in returning threats, insults, and general annoyances with far more serious "punishments", such as blowing up a whole restaurant because somebody split her food, blowing up some ruins because they contained skimpy idol singer outfits and a book of songs instead of an ancient tome of spells, or even using the Dragon Slave on a friend for mocking her singing.
    • Yuuki Terumi has tried to annoy her with this knowledge by calling her a defective clone of Luna, then responding to her ensuing outburst by asking her if she's ten. She in turn hit him with a Dragon Slave. This got both Terumi and Zamasu to pay attention to her, noticing her power and deeming her yet another heretical mortal traversing on the territory of the gods.
  • Occasionally shares buffet tables with the likes of Birdie and Nappa, who she gets along with as long as they're off the clock. Her seriously high levels of magic use require her to eat a lot to compensate.
  • Sympathizes with Noel Vermillion and Etna due to their A-Cup Angst. While her chest is nowhere near quite as flat as theirs, it's largely obscured by her outfit and petite size and ultimately pales in comparison to her friend Naga the White Serpent's DD-cups, leaving her with similar inadequacy issues. Though she's cool with all of the Saber Marionettes, the one she'll hang out with most is Cherry for much of the same reasons. That said, she's not sure how she feels about Cherry telling her she sounds like Lime.
  • Whether her hair is depicted as orange, auburn, or red often depends on the medium and time. Her interactions with fellow redheads in the Pantheon tend to vary, however. For example, due to her body image issues as described above, she tends to get jealous and immature around Jessica Rabbit and C. Viper. And of the Saber Marionettes, Bloodberry is the most likely to draw out the insecurity about her figure, but also the most likely to get her Hot-Blooded nature flowing, as the two fiery redheads tend to feed off each other. Much to the misfortune of others around them.
  • Despite both being auburn-haired girls who employ Disproportionate Retribution, she and Seryu Ubiquitous despise each other. No one counts it any surprise that the destructive sorceress who ultimately does good but is openly in it for the riches and the psychopath who murders for her empire in the name of justice would be natural enemies.
    • This is only one of various reasons why many believe Esdeath's Jaegers and High Command partners are destined to come to blows with the Night Hand. For what it's worth, the Empire's Strongest has taken notice of Lina's power.
  • While her main obsession is obviously magic, she can sometimes be seen visiting the House of Technology, specifically the Robots and Machinery subhouses.
  • She's literally been arrested and tried for being Lina Inverse. Then again, considering "being Lina Inverse" means "being a Destructive Savior driven by Greed and prone to Disproportionate Retribution who's willing to steal and haggle for food and gold even at the most inopportune times", that's hardly unjustified. That said, her comedic sociopathy plays far less in the manga volumes compared to the anime series, so she doesn't feel like it fully applies.

  • Conflicting Opinion: Jason Todd
  • Uneasy Alliance: Rem
  • Feared by: Dexter
  • Originally switching between Hannibal Lecter and Jack the Ripper (who competed for the title God of Serial Killers), Dexter hoped to to use his divine powers to kill them both. Using the dispute to cause the two gods to feud with each other, he hoped that the two would face one last time to the death. Then, he can swoop in and finish off the weakened victor. Unfortunately, he underestimated Hannibal's cunning and the two turned on him instead. After a vicious thrashing, the two gods stripped him of his divine power and left him for dead, with the Ripper taking the Serial Killer title. Luck would befall on him as he did not die that day. Instead, he woke up at the gates of the Pantheon, rising up himself as the God of Serial-Killer Killers.
  • He did not get the amount of followers he thought he'd get, as his series fell out in favor due to Seasonal Rot. Luckily, it wasn't due to his own failings.
  • Few gods would suspect that a serial killer would have such a neat and tidy temple. Most deities think he's just a minor detective in the House of Justice. And yet it is all a ruse: he makes other gods think of him as a normal man. That all changes when ventures off at night, luring criminals away to torture and eventually kill them. Some gods would say his actions would be downright evil if not for his targets.
    • However, he is wary for the arrival of a certain Sergeant that nearly did him in when he was a mortal. Some gods say one can always make him fidget whenever he hears this phrase
  • Bad guys should NOT by any circumstances mistake him for the Boy Genius over in the House of Technology. Anyone who would want to do harm to the boy will receive an extra-painful torture session. The kid Dexter thinks his namesake is absolutely terrifying.
  • Looks to the Punisher as a stalwart ally due to similar philosophies in dealing with bad guys. It's not uncommon seeing the two together to take down mobsters.
  • Is absolutely despised by Batman. A staunch opponent of killing criminals, he is not fooled in the least by his facade. It doesn't help that Dexter goes after many of his rogues gallery. It really says something when he sometimes teams up with the Joker to stop him.
  • One would think that he would be in good terms with fellow criminal killer Light, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Both accuse the other of overstepping their bounds and strive to kill the other. While Light does not have Dexter's full name, the later's has not been able to track down the former's whereabouts.
  • There is some confusion as to whether Dexter wants to team up with Jason Todd or kill him himself. On the one hand, the Red Hood's style fits him well. On the other hand, his initial resurrection killed quite of few innocent people. Dexter decided to let him be for now.
  • Is surprisingly nice with children. It helps that most do not know of his true dealings. It's that reason that Stringtrap is among his top priorities to slay.
    • Is also distraught that children themselves are capable of such evil. An encounter with Hansel and Gretel caught him offguard, barely escaping with his life. He's now ready to deal with the creepy twins, even if it means putting them down for good.
  • Despite disliking the methods, Dexter knows better than to mess with most assassins in the pantheon such as Ezio and Strider. But at least one assassin took interest to taking him out. While he was resting in his innocent persona, he was attacked by a knife-throwing assassin. Luckily, he managed to fend her off and identified his assailant. Turns out Katarina was hired to kill him, most likely hired by the GUAE. Every know and then the two face off once more, usually with Dexter escaping.
  • Not everyone gets scared when they find out about his hobby. When he stabbed a couple of pedophiles after Kevin McCallister, he gained favor from the God of Booby Trap Warfare. Dexter has made it clear that anyone who dare messes with the kid would get a slow, painful death.
  • Rumor has it that the Jigsaw Killer is preparing a diabolical trap specifically for Dexter. He was rather interested with the man's hobbies and hopes to use his urges against him.
  • One of the first gods to deduct that Dexter's not who he seems was Henry Jekyll, much to the former's surprise. It wasn't until he tracked down the cause of a recent ruffling of civiliansthat he found out why. After an intense battle with Hyde, he managed to follow the brute and he him transform to his meeker form. Though he could have killed him despite his injuries, Dexter decided to let him go, seeing to much of himself in the scientist. However, there is no doubt the The Bay Harbor Butcher will keep an eye on his alter ego.
  • He has also been approached by Rem, upon hearing of how similar he was to Light, to be asked to spare Misa if he comes across her. It wasn't until he heard about why she did what she did with Light that he fully understood her situation, and agreed to at least put her at the very bottom of her "to kill" list, which Rem accepted. Upon hearing more about Dexter himself, Rem also began to pity him, and has agreed to keep close tabs on him, talking about who really deserves to die here. While she is uneasy, as he was Faking the Dead to escape into the wild to keep his loved ones safe from his killing urges, she is growing more trusting of her than she is to Light.

  • Followers: Belkar
  • Allies: Faust, Strong Bad
  • Opposed by: Any villain who takes themselves too seriously, innocent civilians, Senator Armstrong,
  • Feared by: Clu
  • As the only one of the duo with a semi-functioning conscience, Sam adds the "heroic" to Max's "vessel of unbridled sociopathic terror", by pointing the lagomorph in the direction of evil-doers. Neither one will shy away from excessive collateral damage in the pursuit of justice, and as a result an entire wing of Hell is devoted to innocents who've been killed or corrupted in the wake of Sam & Max's gleefully oblivious destruction.
  • Oddly enough, Sam & Max weren't in line for this position. They simply showed up and happened to complete the three complex rituals necessary to prove their right of ascension. We choose not to investigate what happened to the other candidates and why the parchments smell funny. Sam's promise that he'd let Max beat us with our own kidneys if we don't stop asking questions had little to do with it.
  • Some say that Commissioner Gygax called these two to stick around specifically in case Xanatos makes too great a power play. The actions of Sam & Max cannot be planned nor predicted by anyone, especially those who try to make Unwitting Pawns of the pair - as many a thwarted mastermind will attest.
  • Max occasionally plays poker with the Heavy, Tycho, and Strong Bad. Sam also hangs out in the speakeasy the four play in, but has also engaged with some poker with fellow god Ashley Williams, who has shown respect for Sam's adventures in saving the world, Brock Samson, who is a follower of Guy Shishioh, and Claptrap, with GLADOS as the dealer.
  • Max's case has also come into question as he is actually an alternate timeline Max due to the original Max becoming an Eldritch Abomination and destroyed by thousands of missiles. Sam doesn't seem to mind, though.
  • Was great to hear their good friend Sybil entering the Pantheon. Max is still determined that her job should be guilt slinging considering she helped name the trope in question.
  • If they are in the vicinity when a phone starts ringing, RUN. The two will immediately scramble into a mad dash in order to get it and most likely cause a lot of collateral damage when one of them (mostly Sam) finally gets their hands on it.
  • No one knows how Max pulls out all of the inventory he has on him (since he doesn't wear clothes). He'll reply that it's "none of your damn business" if anyone asks.
  • The two have the unique distinction of being the only people that Clu is actually terrified of. The fact that they once destroyed the internet of their world using a biological weapon may have something do with it.

  • Friendly Rival: Undyne
  • Enemies: Mr. Freeze, Pearl Forrester, Steven Armstrong, Gohma Vlitra
  • Worthy Opponent: Raiden, Henry Cooldown, Margaret Moonlight
  • Travis's ascension was rather...unconventional. He ascended due to paying his way in, after amassing enough funds to requisition a battle with some unimportant god. Said deity's sound defeat was enough for Travis to be deified. His first words upon ascension?
  • Travis is an avid wrestling fan, and so he has befriended and allied with many wrestlers in the Pantheon who can stand him. He's even had a few unofficial matches to seal the deal! While he was quite capable already from his time before godhood, his exhibitions with wrestling's greatest have served to make him a much more superior master of suplexes, chokeholds, special moves and pins.
    • Rey Mysterio instantly hit it off with Travis when the latter first approached him. Their friendship was only solidified when Travis offered him one of his spare beam katanas after Rey showed him his sword collection. Travis has since vowed to personally help the collection grow, causing countless other gods to shiver in distress.
      • Travis had a fangasm regarding the presence of the Masked Luchador out of them all, El Santo, in the pantheon. He had such a hard time keeping it together when he went to get Santo's autograph. That was one of the happiest days of Travis's godly life.
  • He eventually gained the attention of Asura due to having sworn revenge on the UAA for what the did to him and his fellow ranked assassins. They became allies when Travis also vowed to help Asura destroy the Gohma Vlitra for good.
  • Scott is also good friends with Travis. This was after they had gotten to talking one day over lunch, after they had caused a scene over a misunderstanding. They had a lot in common. Both are huge geeks who challenged and defeated numerous opponents for the sake of a girl they liked, they have a habit of breaking the 4th wall on a regular basis, and they both grew out of being supreme dickwads to settling for almost decent heroes. They're still kind of jerks, though.
    • Scott Pilgrim is actually thankful for Travis actually respecting him enough to not only not hit on Ramona, but to also help protect her should she be threatened by someone, namely Gideon.
  • Had a mecha in the mortal realm known as the "Glastonberry" that he had to scrap for funds. After working at it a bit he eventually managed to scrounge up enough funding to have it rebuilt for his personal use in the Pantheon. He uses it to challenge larger than life opponents.
  • Shockingly, he managed to successfully hold his own against Raiden in a duel. The fight had drawn the attention of the entire House of Justice but since no damage was done (and because the fight itself was so awe-inspiring) he was let off with just a warning. He now considers Raiden a Worthy Opponent and has begun to train for their eventual rematch. He's still a little uncomfortable about him sounding remarkably like his older twin brother.
    • Speaking of his brother, Henry regularly seeks him out to fight with him. Somehow this happens every time Travis is in a compromising position. Henry lets him finish before they start dueling, though.
      • Related, but Travis has also been forced to duel Kenpachi Zaraki numerous times. He never wins, but he gets closer each time. Zaraki is gleeful of the idea of Travis's potential to be a better challenge for him.
  • There are many, many goddesses in the Pantheon he lusts over, not the least of which are primarily located in the House of Lust. However, he never makes any advances on them. This is both due to having a thing for Sylvia Christel and the following:
  • Travis despises everyone who takes advantage of others to use their shortcomings for their own gain. This made him a natural enemy of Senator Steven Armstrong, who took advantage of desperate mercenaries in his crusade.
  • Due to their shared love of anime, he and Undyne get along. On the same lines, Travis is absolutely smitten with Konata.
    "Moe~"
  • To his surprise, after so long with just his brother in the Pantheon, Margaret Moonlight herself ascended. He once more managed to defeat her, but not before admitting he still remembered her song. He sometimes fights her just to hear it.
  • Is making a grand return which has him fighting through the worlds of various gods. Many were shocked to learn that one of those worlds belonged to Shovel Knight of all deities. He's been training with said shovel-wielding knight recently.

  • Allies: Bender, Fluttershy, Strong Bad
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: The Mane Six minus Fluttershy
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Homer Simpson (from Homer's side)
  • Rivals: Eric Cartman
  • Enemies: Eren Yeager, due to the fact that he once stepped on Dan's car in his titan form, Kefka because of his attempt to destroy everything would stop him from being able to finish his favorite TV shows, Ragyo because he hates people who would betray their own family, and all Abusive Parents, Bugs Bunny
  • Opposes: Anyone who annoys him in any way, Seth MacFarlane, The Count of Monte Cristo
  • Admires: William Shakespeare
  • A showdown of epic proportions was brewing in the House of Vengeance. Two deities held the title God of Revenge: The Count of Monte Cristo and Dan. And neither of them were willing to share. Things boiled over when Dan's car and Edmond's carriage crashed into each other. Both swore revenge, delivering every prank and dirty trick imaginable over a period of days. In a showdown in the House of Nature, Dan emerged victorious, tossing a battered Count into a river. With that, Dan laid claim to the title himself.
    • But that would not be the end of the Count. Two weeks was all it took for the Count to enact the most sadistic, debilitating and downright cruel plot of revenge the Pantheon had ever seen. The Court of the Gods had no choice but to hand it over to the Count once more. Dan managed to remain in the Pantheon on sheer willpower (so he claims; the Count actually saw to it that Dan was reinstated), picking up Anti-Role Model in the hopes of taking the title back from the Count.
  • Has a love-hate relationship with all of the Equestrian gods in the Pantheon, but he respects Fluttershy most of all for tending to animals. She's the only one other than himself who is allowed to tend for Mr. Mumbles.
    • Some have theorized that he is in a relationship with Pinkie Pie, due to them often being seen together in adds and paired in many fanworks. But no one has been able to get a straight answer from Pinkie, while the deity who asked Dan, unfortunately interrupted Dan's favorite show… and no one else has volunteered to try.
      • Of course, considering Dan is a human and Pinkie is a pony, it's unlikely. Then again, Pinkie has a human form, so the possibility, however slight, is still there.
    • Discord has shown a lot of interest in Dan's potential to bring chaos, onto just about anyone, thing, or abstract concept. Understandably, everyone has expressed worry over what would happen, if Dan had the power of the chaos spirit by his side. Discord may not be villainous anymore, but someone as spiteful as Dan with Discord's power is honestly a terrifying thought.
  • If there's anyone who could fit the role of a horrible role model, it's Bender. The robot even entered a tv show as himself, with the predictable result. Not that it mattered to Dan; the two get along nicely.
    • The same could have been said for Cartman...if not for the kid's eagerness to exact revenge on those who fault him. Thus, the two enact their revenge plots on each other...or anyone who tries to call them out for it.
  • Homer doesn't approve of many of Dan's schemes, but he does admit to paying lip service from time to time.
  • Bugs just loves to poke fun at Dan, mainly due to disliking his methods of revenge and being a bad role model to kids in general. Their feud is ongoing with no end in sight.
  • Seth Mac Farlane met up with Dan in the Pantheon, hoping to have a chat with the man. The God of Cutaway Gags hoped that Dan's new position would help bring more of his characters into the Pantheon. It was a proposal that was promptly rejected. Dan may not be liked by many in the Pantheon, but at least he admits it. That and many of his enemies deserved the retaliation (at least to him). Dan followed up by kicking Seth out of his temple, warning him never to return.
  • Despite his lack of intelligence, he is quite knowledgeable in the works of William Shakespeare. Likewise, the artist may well be the only person in the Pantheon he doesn't have beef with. The poet would rather not delve too deep into the matter, preferring Dan's silent appreciation of him.

  • During World War II, Rick was a cynical expatriate living in Casablanca, working as a manager of his nightclub visited by Nazis, Vichy authorities, and the resistance, none whom Rick sticks his neck out for. That all changed when his Old Flame Ilsa Lund and her husband, resistance leader Victor Laszlo, arrived there, prompting Rick to choose between his love and helping Laszlo escape Casablanca to continue his fight against the Nazis. In the end, he lets Ilsa board the plane and he begins his beautiful friendship with Captain Louis Renault. It is because of this act that he ascended to the Pantheon.
    • It is also due to his film’s iconic status that it became a tradition for the House of Theater to provide annual showings for the film.
  • Although little is known about Rick’s past or why he can’t return to his home country, it was known that he fought the fascists in Spain in 1935 as well as running guns in Ethiopia in the following year.
  • One of the first gods he came across was the Super Soldier himself, Captain America, who heard how Rick was becoming a patriot. Once Rick was surmised with how the captain can drink without getting drunk. Nevertheless, he has great respect for the captain’s motivations and actions. It helps that the two shared the same 1940s setting (at least Cap did before being frozen and brought to the modern age).
  • Became acquainted with Jeanne d’Arc as he found her capable of being a good leader. Somehow, she also reminded him of Ilsa right down to her appearance.
  • Speaking of Ilsa, the House of Love sympathized with him over the fact that he did not get her at the end of his story.
  • Was surprised to see his avatar Humphrey Bogart in the Pantheon. Sometimes, the two can be seen drinking and exchanging conversations with each other.
    • And speaking of avatars, at least a few actors back in the mortal realm tried (and failed) to recapture Bogie’s portrayal of Rick.
    • Once, Bugs Bunny and company put on a production in the House of Theater that homage and parodied Rick’s adventures during his time in Casablanca. Rick was pleased with how it turned out.
  • Turns out Rick is not the only one who experienced a turn from neutrality. Both Vegeta and Sasuke made Heel Face Turns after going through the revolving door. Viral was a guy just following orders and trying to keep his cause until he made a Heel-Face Turn.
  • His opinion towards Nazis has changed since he shot Major Strasser. Because of this, the Red Skull sees him as another target that needs to be disposed. Rick also doesn’t like HYDRA and Millennium due to their close ties with Nazis.
    • Rick also approves Takeshi Hongo and Hayato Ichimonji’s fight against a Nazi-esque organization called SHOCKER.
  • Recently struck a friendship with Indiana Jones as both of them were considered to be very cool and tough guys, not to mention their similar experiences with Nazis.
    • He is also on good terms with Captain Malcolm Reynolds as both were veterans of a civil war who turned to cynicism and/or disbelief after their respective sides lost.
  • He tries to stay as far away from Dot Warner as possible considering she apparently once jumped onto him and kissed him.
  • "Here's looking at you, kid."
