  • Opposes: Chaos (naturally and obviously)
  • Conflicting Opinions: The Incubators
  • He was ascended to replace Altena under the request of Yuma Tsukumo and Eiki Shiki to be able to reform the GUAL. They actually had a good case for this, with Eliphas being from the Astral World, under threat from the attacks of the Barians. The Astral World and the Barian World were once one realm, but its inhabitants separated the two in an attempt to remove chaos from their world so that they could achieve Rank-Up. However, removing chaos has only led the Astral World to stagnate and decay, with its citizens falling prey to diseases and despair. In the aim of saving Astral World he was willing to allow the Human World to be destroyed, and would have Mind Raped his own herald Astral in further service of that goal if Yuma hadn't kicked his butt.
  • After his ascension, he tried to ally himself with YHVH and the GUAL due to sharing the same wish for a perfect world. Many feared he would go back to do similar stuff in the Pantheon as he did in the Astral World but Eliphas has started to work with Eiki Shiki to turn back the GUAL into its former Pure Law glory instead of the corrupted variant they both found. Also, because hey, he does owe Yuma for saving the Astral World.
    • Though he blames Lucifer and believes he was somehow responsible for this because in his mind, corruption=chaos and chaos=evil. Eiki had to metaphorically (and some say that even literally) pull his ear and scold him for this ridiculous leap in logic.
  • He rarely exits neither the Astral World nor his temple unless it's a very extraordinary situation. He prefers sending his herald Astral if something needs to be done. Eiki Shiki thinks that this is for the better, as Eliphas' Lawful Evil/Neutral and Astral's Lawful Good balance each other and this is what the Yamaxanadu was what she was planning to do with YHVH.
    • This has made Astral and Metatron acquaintances but Astral does think that he and his Master could be a lot less extreme. He gets along a little bit better with Mastema, but the Angel of Hostility can be an asshole half of the time.
  • Has started to oppose the Grand United Alliance of Chaos. While he agrees that they are not as abominable as the Barian World influenced by Don Thousand, he still thinks that a pure world can only be attained by eliminating chaos. Lucifer replied to him that his wish of evolution is a Chaotic one in nature, and as nasty as Don Thousand was, Eliphas was/is deluding himself if he believed no one would complain at his tyranny. Or for that manner, that change could be achieved without the intervention of chaos.
    • Though he doesn't seem like opposing Asura. Possibly because Yuma asked not to, or simply because he is smart enough to not even bother.
  • He also respects a little the Hope Bringers in the Pantheon, especially Madoka Kaname for ascending and attempting to work with the Incubators (as much as that backfired) and Kouta Kazuraba for more-or-less and his devotion to ideals. (Then again, being beaten by an untransformed Hope Bringer would make anyone respect them...)
    • However, Eliphas is deathly afraid of Flynn and avoids him like the plague after hearing what he did to Ancient of Days.
  • Absolutely hates the Trollkaigers, as not only it was one like them that temporarily corrupted his herald, they have started to annoy him due to that defeat he had and since the one who defeated him is considered a moron, they say he's a moron by proxy. He has a No Trolls Allowed! poster outside his temple ever since and is planning to make the order on the House of Commerce the standard for the rest of the Pantheon. It's not hard for most of the deities to agree on this one.
  • Does not know what to make of the Incubators. He thinks he would have employed them back in the bad days of his world so that they could have that decay and despair that was unnecessary for the Astral World, but now that his world was rewritten, he has no need for that. He does think that the Pantheon and Homura have been a bit too harsh on them as they were doing what they were doing for a good cause.
  • Does not like Light Yagami. Eliphas thinks he could have been such a prospective chosen one for rank up and the cause of purity, but he has been too consumed by his ego to be that. Shame, as he said.
  • Has been trying to snap Sartorius out of his brainwashing as the first step towards a perfect GUAL. It would be better if he was conscious while he preaches about the Light, as he believes it to be.
    • He earned the ire of one Judai Yuki by doing this because he wanted to help his friend to be outside the influence of the Great Will. The feeling is mutual since he feels that the humanoid duelist's ability to have lucky draws that aren't a Shining Draw must be somehow related to the Chaos Barian Draws he despises so much.
    • Yusei Fudo also hates him for being similar to Paradox, Yliaster/Aporia and Z-ONE. He simply shrugged this time.
  • May YHVH have mercy on thy soul, because Eliphas will not have any if thou even suggest he could ever be... Chaotic! - Eliphas 13:13
    • . ..Not that it helps since most of the Chaos Marines like to annoy him by quoting lines from the Chaos Lord Eliphas the Inheritor in front of him the few times he is around the Pantheon. To which he always responds by zapping those Chaotic fouls.
      • Then they started to delegate this to Astral. Eliphas almost smote his herald before Yuma stopped him. He has ever since banned him from going anywhere near them anymore. Which technically speaking, he already banned him to... He simply was more lenient with him about that.
  • While he hates Lucifer for being Chaos Incarnate, there's someone else he hates even more: Homura Akemi. Hates, hates, hates, hates, hates her. Hates her guts. Hates how "damned" (aka selfish and driven by desire) she is. Hates how she cheated her way into "rank up" by stealing the powers of a worthy ascended one.

    Kuvira 
Kuvira, Goddess of Villains With Valid Arguments (The Great Uniter)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kuvira4x05.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: The Earth Empire insignia
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil, may be Lawful Neutral now
  • Portfolio: Exceptional Earth- and Metalbender, Iron Lady of War, Utopia Justifies the Means, Ambiguously Evil and Virtuous Anti-Villain, The Generalissimo, Sees Teammates as Tools But is Otherwise Polite So Long as She is Not Questioned, The Chessmaster, Combat Pragmatist, Consummate Liar and Professional, Crazy-Prepared Control Freak, Well-Intentioned Extremist, Forgot Her Original Goal Only to Remember in the End, Drunk with Power, Proud and Temperamental, Long-Range Fighter, Travels On a Maglev, Will Chain Dissenters to Railways, Skilled in Metal Strangle, Sour Outside, Sad Inside, Parental Abandonment, Break the Haughty, Life Owed to Korra, Surrenders After Defeat
  • Domains: Earth, Metal, Order
  • Allies: Satsuki Kiryuin
  • Enemies: Zaheer, Amon, the House of Plants, Hero Killer Stain (former holder), High Councilor Kal-El/Regime Superman, Ahtal-Ka, Hilda
  • Respects: Avatar Korra
  • Opposed by: Asami Sato, Tenzin, Lin Beifong, Bolin, Mako, Varrick, Toph Beifong, Katara, Zuko, Greed, Olivier Armstrong, Maes Hughes, Princess Zelda, most in the Nature Preservers and Plants sub-houses
  • Coming from the wake of losing the Earth Queen to the Red Lotus, the chaos that ensued in the Earth Kingdom required order to return. With the Avatar in recovery and later missing, someone had to pick up the slack. However, the replacement king-to-be was unfit to rule given his privileged life (and even he realized that), and Suyin Beifong, the only leader in a position to fix this chaos, had refused to provide any aid, not even supplies. That's where Kuvira came in. Dejected at Suyin's refusal to help, and resolved to not let the feeling of abandonment affect the Earth Kingdom as it did her, she left Suyin's city of Zaofu behind, picked up the slack, and became the Kingdom's temporary leader, only to then reform and unite it as the Earth Empire.
    • After a harrowing fight against bandits, dissidents within her ranks, the resistance of Zaofu as well as Republic City, and finally against the Avatar herself and her friends, Kuvira and her forces were eventually defeated, and Korra managed to convince her to surrender.
    • As for how she was ascended to the Pantheon, someone in the Grand United Alliance of Law decided they could use someone like her and hope to turn her to their side once more, so they set a course for her to ride in on her really cool maglev. Fortunately, Eiki Shiki managed to get to the former commander as soon as she could and brought her in to the Magistrate Judges. She also sent word to Korra about Kuvira's arrival.
    • Upon meeting with the Avatar again, as well as being told of what goes on in the Pantheon, Kuvira asserts that she still plans on atoning for the crimes she's done and hopes to do that by helping Eiki Shiki's faction; YHVH's agenda definitely does not have the interests of the masses in mind, which was why she became the Great Uniter in the first place.
  • One of the few allies she's genuinely made in the Pantheon was Satsuki Kiryuin, who also was a military-style dictator who did try to save the world but in the wrong way. That said, Satsuki did hold to some morals despite that, unlike Kuvira who lost sight of what was right.
  • Knows full well that not everyone else would be as forgiving of her being here as Korra, especially Lin (for betraying Suyin; Greed and Olivier both agree on this part), Asami (for killing her father), and Varrick (for forcing him to make that spirit vine cannon). She'd also rather not face Toph, especially since she's her younger self here (but still with the experiences of her 'present' self).
  • Is a pariah in the House of Nature, especially the sub-House of Plants, due to her use of spirit vines to power her heavy weaponry. Most of the more extremist members of the house (such as Battra) actively marked her as an enemy and vowed to bring her down.
  • The metal in her uniform isn't just fashionable, she also uses them as binders, anti-dissenter tools, and even wristblades. She is a metalbender, after all, and very good at it. If there's metal on your uniform, she will use it against you in ways such as tossing you around like a ragdoll or tying you down in dangerous situations. If you don't have any, she'll take strips of her own metal, latch it onto you, and do the same thing anyway.
  • Has drawn the interest of many mecha pilots, as while hers isn't impressive compared to theirs, the fact that she managed to create one at all in her setting is a commendable feat in and of itself. It's also made of platinum to prevent metalbenders from affecting it, though other metal manipulators like Magneto and Pyrrha aren't subject to that workaround as their powers exclusively affect metal.
    • Speaking of mechas, Kuvira's bending would serve as a hard counter for Ahtal-Ka's mech. It's gigantic and capable of fighting entire armies, sure, but is ultimately made out of stone and metal. As such, she's one of the people out there trying to keep it from causing trouble.
  • Re-education camps are a sore reminder of what she had once been, and has denounced those means.
  • Other villains (such as Giovanni) have approached Kuvira with the intent of bringing her to their side, but she turned them down, not wanting to go down the path of darkness once more.
  • Hilda might be well-liked by her subordinates just like her, but she doesn't have the best intentions in mind, and this makes her feel dedicated to stop her both to redeem herself and so that Hilda won't have her way.
  • When Kuvira embarks on a project, she will have both a best-laid plan and a contingency safeguard for that best-laid plan. Case and point, that 25-story-tall platinum mecha? Was the backup plan to carry and fire shots from a giant spirit energy cannon in case she needed the cannon in place sooner than she planned to get it there by railway. Her proficiency in combat and authoritative presence are one thing. That she's able to plan on top of her plans makes her even scarier. As a good man who's served armies he had to discover were led by evil manipulators in two different lifetimes, Maes Hughes is keenly watching out for anything out of the ordinary with her to make sure it doesn't lead to another empire march.

    Sage Harpuia 
Sage Harpuia, God of Noble Enforcers (Guardian of the Fierce Sky, Model H, Wise General Harpuia)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-Harpuia_7977.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His helmet facing left, or Biometal H
  • Theme Song: Flash Back, Harpuia, Resistance
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Lawful Neutral for a short time)
  • Portfolio: Neo Arcadia's Noble Top Enforcer, Very Sympathetic Anti-Villain, Aerial Combat Mixed with Electricity, Tragic Hero Blinded by Pride, Twin Weapons, Harpy Eagle Fighter Jet Armed Phenomenon, Heel Realization and Face Turn
  • Domains: Good, Law, War, Protection, Wind, Lightning
  • Heralds
  • Followers: General Leo, Kronk
  • Superior: X (robotic "father"/master)
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Rainbow Dash, Scanty and Kneesocks
  • Enemies:
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: HK-47, Bender Rodriguez
  • Additional Relationship: Erik Lensherr/Magneto
  • Is extremely uncomfortable around Katara, Cygnus Hyoga, Kuai Liang/Sub-Zero, and Mr. Freeze (despite not being so different) for obvious reasons.
  • Harpuia leads a Four Heavenly Kings-style quartet of Reploid siblings called the Four Guardians, including Fighting Fefnir, Hidden Phantom, and Fairy Leviathan, all based off the DNA of Original/Mega Man X. Loyally serving the orders of X and later Copy X, he destroyed any Reploid declared a threat to humanity without hesitation…but then his mission slowly changed when he discovered that the copy was nothing like the original and was in fact in league with the evil Dr. Weil. Since ascending after his conversion, the leader of the Four Guardians has been trying to convince Magneto that peaceful coexistence between humans and "superior" beings is possible.
  • Adell is seeking his aid against Overlord Zenon, seeing that Harpuia's nigh immunity to lightning and super sonic flight speed would (at least in theory anyway) give her trouble. His military experience as the leader of the Four Guardians and intellectual commander of the Rekku Army, otherwise known as the Strong Air Battalion or Army of the Fierce Sky, is perhaps an even bigger boon from his allegiance.
  • Has a rivalry with Rainbow Dash, which probably comes from them being so similar.
  • Possesses a deep-rooted hatred for Prometheus and Pandora for being Mavericks, to which they could honestly care less about. However, he is forbidden from directly attacking them due to their membership in the GUAG Token Evil Teammates. On the other hand, he's always at the ready in the event they slip up to be the first to exterminate them.
  • X represents hope for the human race, of which Madoka reminds him of. Which is why he is participating in "The Pantheonic Rebellion" and has designated Metatron as a Maverick to be terminated. He has brought the other three Guardians to assist in defending Madoka.
  • Harpuia had an encounter with Scanty and Kneesocks after they heard he had a connection with the devil, and were surprised that he was a good guy. They later sympathized with him over how "chaotic" Weil really was, and they became rivals of sorts. Harpuia hopes that they can become good while still enforcing the RRRRRRURUS, while the two demons think that he should return to his oppressive ways.
  • Spider-Man gained his allegiance for learning righteousness and responsibility much as he did in his day, albeit in entirely different ways; where Spidey initially didn't care so much about using his powers to do good, Harpuia for a long time was too caught up in doing so to realize he was being used to work evil instead.
  • Grey originally attacked him when they first encountered each other, due to the fact that he thought he was looking at the Model H Mega Man, Aeolus. After clearing up that mishap though, the two of them became allies, though Harpuia was shocked and angered about learning what his dishonorable and far less compassionate future counterpart was doing down in the mortal realms.
  • Doesn't have the best relationship with Elpizo, and vice-versa, both over the latter's Operation Righteous Strike and destroying X's original body to release the Dark Elf.
  • Was pleased to see his brothers Phantom and Fefnir get their own temples, as this allowed them to spread out more and perform their actual duties. The same couldn't be said for his sister Leviathan just yet, as her petition was somehow backlogged apart from the others.
  • When he heard about a certain Leviathan coming into the Pantheon, Harpuia…did not bum rush to greet that being. Instead, he ran a scan and research to make sure it's his sister, Fairy Leviathan. When it turned out to be a Tidehunter instead, Harpuia ceased all attempts to greet the being. The Siren General was found to still be in his temple.
  • Shortly after the politically-labeled Maverick Epsilon was reconstructed in the Pantheon, Harpuia went to meet with him to see what he was about. As Harpuia's attitude and design reminded Epsilon of his own loyal Cadres, Epsilon solicited the Sage's help in his quest to maximize the potential of Reploids. He gave Epsilon two conditions: no initiation of violent force against innocents of any kind, and no recruiting true Mavericks. Epsilon agreed.
  • One of their first acts was to recruit the Green Biker Dude to their cause as an example of creative Reploid engineering. Harpuia's loyalty to X, who GBD fought and died alongside in his first official mission, helped seal the deal with the former Maverick Hunter.
  • He also told Epsilon about several important things regarding his future world and Neo Arcadia, specifically tipping him off about Dr. Weil's evil, and informing him about the energy crisis as well as Ciel's role in Zero's reawakening. He was able to take Epsilon to meet Ciel upon her ascension to the Pantheon, resulting in her agreeing to work with them, in part to research Force Metal as a potential solution to the crisis.
  • Realized that their group would have to be a true resistance for all robot deities who don't wish for dominion over humans rather than a mere research and advocacy force for Reploids, with that plan hastening thanks to a surge of Maverick activity in the Pantheon. While Sigma and Ultron mucked around with both a merging-of-worlds plot and a mechanical outbreak in the Pantheon, with the Maverick Hunters joining group of heroes to stop them on both fronts, Harpuia, along with Epsilon, Ciel, and GBD all gathered and set the framework to transition their organization.
    • During this time, Harpuia convinced Phantom and Fefnir to enter this group after receiving blessings from X along with some of their own friends. He'd also had communications with Aigis, and while she couldn't dedicate enough time to join due to her capacity as a member of the Persona group Shadow Operatives, she did convince her "sister" robot Labrys as well as Lambda-11 to accept in her stead. Harpuia still pledged his assistance to her in case she ever needs it, recognizing her goodness.
    • After Ultron-Sigma's efforts were finally turned back, the set of eight appeared before the House of Justice and announced the creation of Liberion Arcadia. Then they retreated into said House where they had built a futuristic military base connected to the members' temples via teleport terminals.
    • They let a few other robots in on what they were doing, such as Proto Man, Repliforce, Grimlock, and Bass, but none of them answered the call. Instead, an android girl named 2B came to the base claiming she'd contemplated forming a group like theirs until she discovered it already existed. Showing some of her skills, she stated she was built to fight invasive machines. Harpuia was the first to recommend her approval, after which Epsilon and Ciel got on board and the others followed, making her their first new member post-announcement. Shortly afterwards, 2B spoke with the Wise General and the Rebellion Commander regarding her fellow YoRHa droids 9S and A2, who were both in storage awaiting titles; a place was reserved for 9S whenever his time came. Sure enough, 9S would take his place alongside 2B upon ascension with temples based on his hacking skills.
    • Prior to 9S joining the team, Labrys ended up recruiting ICEY, who Harpuia instantly liked as well due to her desire for freedom fitting the group's ideals as well as her X-like sense of mercy despite being built for combat. Epsilon would also bring in Quote and Curly Brace, two armed scout robots who saved an entire cave bunny civilization from certain doom. Thanks to Labrys and Lambda's allies emphasizing this point, the non-Reploid members each gained access to failsafes against the Sigma Virus.
  • After several incidents for the team taking on such enemies as the Corpus, Desperado, the Technocyte Infestation, and the members of Talon, 9S hacked into the systems of the Court of the Gods to push up Leviathan's petition to ascend, enabling Harpuia to finally officially assemble the Four Guardians together in the Pantheon, as well as figure out solid roles and ranks for each member of LA.
    • This also freed up the Herald seats in his temple to be filled by members of his air force, and since the Anchus brothers are already ascended that meant Aztec Falcon and Panter Flauclaws would be seated at his side. Unfortunately it also opened the door for Aeolus to enter through some immortal Reploid data, frustrating Harpuia and his loyalists to no end.

    Takatora Kureshima/Kamen Rider Zangetsu (Shin) 
Takatora Kureshima, God of Token Good Teammates (Kamen Rider Zangetsu, New Generation Rider Zangetsu Shin, The White Armored Rider)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cast05_4892.jpg
Kamen Rider Zangetsu 
Kamen Rider Zangetsu Shin 
  • Intermediate God, Greater God in Kachidoki Arms
  • Symbol: The Zangetsu symbol, the Yggdrasill Corporation Logo, and his two Melon Lockseeds
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral at first, revealed to be Lawful Good all along
  • Portfolio: Token Good Teammates, Showing One's True Personalities, Big Brother Instinct, Badasses in Cool Suits, Corporate Samurais, Every Scar Has a Story, Those Who Revealed to be Truly Good, Relying on Evil People, Being the Last New Generation Rider on Earth
  • Domains: Law, Authority, Good
  • Superior: Gen Urobuchi
  • Allies: All Ascended Toku Heroes (especially Mitsuzane Kureshima (his brother - former enemy), Kouta Kazuraba and Shiro Kanzaki), Kiritsugu Emiya, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, Aila Jyrkiäinen, Zhang Xingcai, Setsuna Higashi, Elizabeth Mably, Reinforce Eins, Nana, Princess Peach (long story), Shino Asada, Akane Tsunemori, Shinya Kogami
  • Enemies: Those who want to mess with him, SHOCKER, YHVH, Lucifer, Sou Fueki, Ryoma Sengoku, Lock Dealer Sid, Shogo Makishima, BROKEN Matt Hardy
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Pretty much every god who was affected with "Project: Alternate Gentaro" (all one-sided on their part, not his), Yoko Minato (still remembers that one day she betrayed him)
  • Responsible for revealing the Awful Truth to Kouta about Yuya's final fate, said fate involves turning into an Inves and then killed off by accident.
  • Attempted to tell his brother Mitsuzane to reveal the truth about the Helheim Forest, not knowing that Micchy's on the dark side. That is... until The Shield knocked some sense into him.
    • His Selective Obliviousness is almost on par with Terra's seeing as he didn't even realize how his inner circle is gunning to kill him, nor did he realize how his little brother has caused "Project: Alternate Gentaro". Everyone under Teeth-Clenched Teamwork has decided to give him a lesson on "Trust 101" due to him just choosing to ignore the tragedy that has befallen the Pantheon.
  • Has a disdain for both YHVH and Lucifer... ironically, he's of the same Lawful spectrum as the former.
  • Looked in absolute horror when he finally learned what his brother caused to Gentaro, or rather "Alternate Gentaro". Part of him was mortified in how Alternate Gentaro went about gutting Micchy, the other half ashamed that he never realized how dark and sinister his brother could truly be. Has allied with the Shield to take him down...but not before getting a huge earful from many gods who hated Mitsuzane's guts ranging from Matt Hardy (being already irked on Ryugen being purple grape based but then the backstabbing on Kota and Jeff becoming Willow made it more personal), Elena (for Mitsuzane's words to make Gentaro—a really good friend of hers—to be sent into despair), Dudley (for causing his good friend Elena to become unladylike and for not noticing such tragedy isn't like a gentleman to do) and The Shield (they are disgusted by Mitsuzane's tactics in general). Let's just say that Takatora is being kept on a leash until Alternate Gentaro is captured.
    • And then Alternate!Gentaro came for Takatora, who 'thanked' the older Kureshima brother by sending a brainwashed Eric Draven to place a powerful Mind Rape that invoked all of the suffering the original Gentaro felt in his descent into madness. The incident caused many of the gods who were angry at him to feel sorry, and he was sent into The Friendship Asylum to heal.
      • Has successfully escaped the asylum due to the help of Voltaire and Artix von Krieger, but he is unable to fight as he still believes that he has caused most of this to happen. A good slap to the face by Ratchet seemed to have helped, but it's not known for sure. However, Takatora was later crushed to death by the Iron Giant during its rampage; he, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Crash McLarson, the Iron Giant, and Sora are the only gods known to have died during "Project: Alternate Gentaro".
      • Of course, Takatora was later revived with a Life spell by Princess Peach. Takatora expected her to scold him, too... but Peach understood what he was going through and looked after him until Takatora was operated on by Black Jack. Afterwards, several other gods, including Riku, began to forgive Takatora.
      • After the above events, he attempted to deal with his brother himself as Zangetsu vs. Zangetsu Shin, but was ultimately knocked out into the ocean, but this time, he only fell into a coma with some brain damage. Apparently, if he didn't hesitate from all their good memories together, he would have won. The other deities were still surprised and/or impressed that he was able to deliver such a beatdown with just the original Zangetsu armor. Once it was all over, Kouta then healed said brain damage so he could help Micchy, who was now an empty shell by then, paving the way for his brother's redemption.
  • He's the man-crush of Oren Pierre Alfonzo, whom he saves his life in the Helheim Forest incident after fighting with several Inves. Oren pretty much thanked him for that.
  • After the events of the Friendship Asylum, Takatora had to watch Matt Hardy become "Broken" and force Jeff Hardy to become "The Nefarious Brother Nero". Takatora immediately put BROKEN Matt Hardy on his shit list, stating how the older brother has become exactly what Takatora was accused of during the asylum incident. During the events known as "Tarot Crusaders", he and Mitsuzane teamed against the broken Hardys... only to fail when he was dragged into Matt Hardy's temple to relive his experiences in the Friendship Asylum.
    • It turns out that he survived the DELETION Matt tried to put on him and aided The Brian Kendrick into pretending to work "with" (not for as The Brian Kendrick likes to tell others) into waiting to strike once the information was needed to strike. Mitsuzane wasn't happy to hear that his older brother had to keep up a charade as a broken, maniacal scarecrow turned human though, and things got worse when Takatora got brainwashed by the dark influence that had manifested from Limbo.

    Taylor Hebert 
Taylor Hebert, Goddess of Those Forced Into Villainous Roles (Skitter, Weaver, Khepri)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/skitter.png
  • Intermediate Goddess, Greater Goddess as Khepri
  • Symbol: A spider with a crown; the name of this symbol is a secret except to the highest levels of her church. It's the Queen Administrator, a representation of her "passenger", the source of her powers.
  • Alignment: Wants desperately to be Chaotic Good, but circumstances and her pragmatism usually cause her to fluctuate between that alignment and Lawful Evil. Chaotic Neutral as Khepri, as her passenger doesn't realize there is such a thing as "other lifeforms that aren't threats if I don't control them".
  • Portfolio: Terrible fortunes and necessity forcing amoral actions, Trying to act merciful and heroic despite nature of power more easily used as a weapon, Insect swarms, Consistently more competent than people assume due to cleverness with powers, Sheer refusal to give up, Horrible bug-related deaths, Chronic depression due to horrible peers
  • Domains: Animal (insect), Cunning, Intellect, Self-Sacrifice
  • Followers: The New Undersiders, much of Earth Bet, a whole gaggle of Benevolent Boss Anti Villains
  • Allies: The less monstrous members of the House of Villains (who honestly believe that she was misorted and belongs with them given her...unique appreciation for disabling people), Magneto, Eren Yaeger, Mr. Freeze, Guts, Beerus (who understands what it means to be the person who oversees the nasty-but-necessary), Leverage Consulting and Associates, Kirigutsu Emiya (initially was an enemy, but Contessa stepped in and showed him the history of Earth Bet as well as Taylor's own. He's since done a complete 180 and now regards her as something of an apprentice).
  • Rivals: Odio, most of the House of Heroes, who recognize both her virtues and less-than-admirable tactics. Cosmos is trying to get her to hang up her constant war footing, but unfortunately she's been burned by supposed Big Good females in the past. Also happy to punch Nazis with Captain America together, due to bad experience with the Empire Eighty-Eight and its descendant gangs; she has a standing deal of a two-minute head start when the situation ends.
  • Enemies: Shinn Asuka, Johann Schmidt, the Grand United Alliance of Law and YHVH, (they remind her of everything she despises about authority figures - technically this would put her in Lucifer's camp, but she's ambivalent about his anarchy). She's also not a fan of the Joker, Monokuma, or the White either, and the feeling is mutual due to an...incident; See below.
  • It's Complicated: Amy Dallon; they've moved on from their mutual loathing and into realizing they're Not So Different. This is also why they avoid each other.
  • Resigned To: The influence of Tzeentch and the Council of Shadows in her life
  • Ascended on behalf of representatives of the House of Mentalism when they realized through data obtained from the G-Man's follower Contessa that she beat a planet-destroying Eldritch Abomination through psychological warfare. Was initially believed to be dead, hence why her ascension took so long as they kept looking in the afterlife (largely thanks to Contessa lying about having killed her). Upon being informed of her title, she is reported to have had no reaction, apart from "Okay. I'm used to it." Nobody's quite sure if she's happy she's able to be important again or upset that she's been forced back into a role she hates.
  • Cursed so that invariably, the first responders to whatever action she takes are morons who naturally frame what she does in the worst possible moral light. The rest of the Pantheon knowing many of those same morons means that they have an official policy of listening to the second responders when figuring out what she's planning, but sadly, her pragmatism means the first responders aren't all that wrong.
  • It doesn't help that, no matter where she goes, she ends up being caught up in the machinations of The Conspiracy and finds herself an extremely versatile playing piece as both scapegoat and agent. This one seems to be an echo of the Cauldron organization that kept on becoming involved with her when she was mortal.
  • Was once made a target of the Joker, Junko Enoshima, and the White for driving into nihilistic rage towards existence, mistaking her bitter acceptance of her role and pragmatism for suppressed homicidal rage. While they did manage to reawaken Khepri by pretending to kill her father Danny, they also discovered the hard way that Taylor doesn't blame other people for the misery in her life, and were entirely the focus of her vengeful fury and Mind Control powers. It took the White months to reconstitute, Junko was blinded and unable to enjoy it as Taylor ensured she would be in too much pain to really experience despair, and Joker got a face full of his own gas, though he managed to be brought back by Harley before brain death. Initially, it appeared they won anyway as Taylor's passenger began to eat her brain again, but as a deity Taylor's mind has enough existence away from her meat brain that hearing Danny calling to her was able to be mentally registered and she forced it back. To add insult to injury, as far as anyone can tell the Queen Administrator still doesn't affect Taylor's mind any more than it normally does - quite humiliating for all the conspirators.
  • Was initially assigned to Motivations For Evil, but eventually, and after the above incident involving co-workers, was accepted fully into Ambiguity. Several members of the House of Villains promptly signed a petition requesting she be sorted back, as they didn't see the problem, but as it turns out that was just the reason Odio gave for ensuring the perpetual tug-of-war over followers given their similarities was at least not constant.
  • It is believed the words "Meh, I can take her", or some other version in reference to her, even thought, makes that person fated to be utterly defeated by her.

  • Seeks to overthrow the Main House and give himself the Title of "Dynast King". At first it seemed to be a purely villainous goal and he has not denied it. But he has upheld his own virtues of Honor, Love and Determination to be able to do what he believes to be the right thing to do to free the Pantheon from "The Tyranny of The Gods".
  • Tried to win people over to his side with a speech similar to this one. So far it seems that his Enemies had to go out of their way to convince others that he was villainous.
  • He has shown a large distaste for YHVH, his angels, and anyone similar to him, because his goal is, in his words:
    "The Pantheon will know a new Dynast King, and Man will keep his own history! The tyranny of the Gods is ended! We shall be their puppets no more! The freedom for which we have longed is at hand!”
  • Though on the same token he does not wish to join any of the other alliances as to him "Good" is limiting, "Evil" just for the sake of it is worthless and "Chaos" is not what he is after.
  • He has allied with Valentine and Bulygin though he has tried to convince them to break away from The Great Will, time will tell what becomes of it.
  • Has shown hatred for those that opposed him in his Realm and has since plotted for their destruction.
    “Your lives are forfeit, and your insurgence along with them. This Pantheon will again know order. For good and all, I shall put your futile attempts at rebellion to an end.”
  • While he and Gilgamesh have similar goals in mind, he believes that the so-called King of Heroes has failed to serve his people well and sees him as a petulant child throwing his toys around when he has a tantrum.
  • Has allied with The Illusive Man and Solidus Snake as he agrees that only Humanity should be in charge of its own Freedom and Destiny.
  • His temple has been relocated at his Sky Fortress and with the help of his allies he can now become "The Undying" at Will there. It provides him with the power to destroy those that would dare to invade.
  • Despite his hatred for most Gods, he has treated those that honestly want to help humanity with Respect after his dealing with Venat. Though it will not stop his attempt to conquer their realms, he attempts to have them come to his side first rather than be flat out hostile.
  • Due to both sharing the same name and he not seeing her as able to do what is necessary he has shown dislike for Ashe.
    "Such a woman is not fit to bear the burden of Rule. Weep for Freljord if you defy my Reign, for She will be lost."
  • Shares similar sentiments for Arturia Pendragon. He often questions her ability to deal with Her Subjects, if she dealt with them as he would then her tragedies would not have befallen her. When questioned on this he gave one response.
    "What am I to do with those who would oppose me...but show them death?"
  • Vayne has been seen in the cross-dimension created by Shinryu. He's a bit behind on the struggle between Cosmos and Chaos, as well as Materia and Spiritus, but he will make good use of his time there.

    Zaheer 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zaheer_6125.png
Zaheer, God of Enlightened Antagonists
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Guru Laghima's locket
  • Theme Song: Theme of the Red Lotus
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, but can lean towards Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Empowered Badass Normal, Ascended Acolyte, Warrior Poet, Villainous Friendship, Enlightened Antagonist, Airbending, Unholy Matrimony, Attempts To Bring Freedom Created A Dictatorship, The Unfettered, Flight, Advocator of Anarchy
  • Domains: Air, Flight, Chaos, Freedom, Void

  • Allies: Lucifer, Xenagos
  • Enemies: Kuvira, Korra, Aang, Asami Sato, Mako, Bolin, Katara, Sokka, Zuko, Toph, The Joker, Rei Shingetsu, most of the House of Royalty, all authority figures, The Grand United Alliance of Evil, The Grand United Alliance of Law, The Grand United Alliance of Machines
  • Respects: Lucifer
  • Uncertain Relationship with: V
  • Avoids: Asura, Mithra
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: The Grand United Alliance of Good (when needed against the GUAE or the GUAL)
  • The Order of the White Lotus is an ancient philosophical society in the World of Avatar, consisting of world-traveled masters seeking beauty and truth beyond the boundaries set by the four nations. Originally its existence was generally shrouded in secrecy; however, following the end of the Hundred Year War, they began to act out in the open as supporters of Avatar Aang's efforts to broker peace between the war-torn nations. This ran afoul of certain members, who felt that the organization had been subverted into acting as the Avatar's enforcers, leading to the creation of the anti-government absolutist splinter faction known as the Red Lotus Society.
    • Zaheer became a member of the Red Lotus, eventually creating a powerful terror cell within the organization who would carry out its goals of either converting or killing Avatar Korra, with hopes of destabilizing the world's governmental structures, ushering in anarchy, and opening the links between the physical realm and the Spirit World. Their first attempt saw them all get arrested and locked away in separate prisons designed to disable their abilities so they had no hope to escape. However, thanks to the Harmonic Convergence in 171 AG, Zaheer gained Airbending powers; this enabled him to escape, free his comrades, and try again. Still, as deadly a threat as they posed, Zaheer would be caught and incarcerated, and his teammates all killed; however, his group did terrible damage in the process which culminated in creating the exact opposite of the conditions the Red Lotus hoped to achieve.
  • After being ascended to the Pantheon and meeting Lucifer, Zaheer signed the entire Red Lotus up with the GUAC. None of them protested.
  • Avoids Asura, due to the multi-armed god finding similarities between Zaheer's attempt to kidnap Korra, and what the Seven Deities did to his daughter Mithra. He also avoids Mithra herself, for that matter, taking no chances of incurring Asura's wrath.
  • Has an odd relationship with V, due to their differing beliefs on anarchy, with Zaheer wanting to completely tear down order and leaders forever, and V simply wishing to destroy and replace the current order with something better.
  • Informed upon his ascension by Katara that she would shove his poison down his throat if he ever tried to go after Korra again or Aang.
  • The chaos caused by his group's murder of the Earth Queen saw one woman from Zaofu resolve to restore order and save her kingdom no matter what the cost, and his poisoning of Korra during their battle rendered her unable to do anything to stop or temper Kuvira's ambitions. The two share a subhouse and are both antagonists of Korra's team, but they are in no way fond of each other. Zaheer has been deeply ashamed of his role in bringing about the rise of the dictator of the Earth Empire, and Kuvira despises him for putting her country into the tailspin which she had to act to solve and ultimately driving her down the road to darkness.
  • While Aang was originally delighted that another Airbender ascended to the Pantheon, upon being informed of his actions by Korra, he now has a heavy dislike of Zaheer due to his trying to kill Korra, disgracing the culture and beliefs of the Air Nomads, and threatening the reborn Air Nation and his family.
  • Upon meeting the Joker, he was disgusted by his claims to be an "agent of chaos," and has been attempting ever since to remove him from the Pantheon.

  • Allies: Juri Han (sort of), Sub-Zero, Illyana Rasputin/Magik, Emma Frost

  • Enemies:
  • Complicated Relationship: with Charlie Nash
  • Odd Friendship: with High Councilor Kal-El/Regime Superman
  • Distrusted by: Rashid
  • Gill wanted Kolin for the position of Enigmatic Minion, but Kolin faced stiff competition from Lisa Hamilton, A.K.A. La Mariposa. Kolin suggested that she and Lisa fight to decide who would take the title. Lisa agreed. Despite the latter giving it her all, it was Kolin's Systema fighting style and her ice powers that gave the Phantasm of Snow and Ice the victory, and cleared the way for her ascension.
  • Not only did she humbly thank Gill for the opportunity, she also offered Lisa the position of High Priestess, to show that there were no hard feelings, and due to their shared love of butterflies. Surprised by the gesture from Kolin, Lisa accepted.
  • Kolin is Russian in origin, but she doesn't like to talk about her past. What we do know is that she was once Soviet military, having lost her friends and family in an unknown war. Being the sole survivor, she wandered into a frozen wasteland, having lost the will to live. Then she met Gill.
    Gill: What is thy name, child?
    Kolin: I have none...
    Gill: Where is thy country?
    Kolin: It's gone.
    Gill: Then I shall forge one. The Country of God. It could be thy new home. Siring every nameless flower, bringing forth a thousand years of peace and harmony to all. If you desire it.
  • As a devoted follower to Gill, Kolin is known for carrying the Book of Miraha, the Illuminati's holy book. Some say that the Operation C.H.A.I.N.S. Incident is what squared Gill's decision to host the third World Warrior Tournament. Granted, Nash failed to stop Bison; Ryu defeated the dictator instead.
    When the sun sets on the Soliton Mountain, the black moon will break into seven pieces and fall on the people "Ultania". Nothing can prevent this... Death and destruction will violate the land. Misery and suffering will assault the people. Then, after 130 days of nothingness, a boy who controls the elements will come to save the people.
  • Her Ice Powers were a gift bestowed upon her by Gill himself. Of course, she and her boss are not the only ice-wielding deities in the Pantheon, which is why she seeks to enhance and strengthen her powers. She was offered to learn from two people: Captain Cold and Sub-Zero. Kolin doesn't think too highly of Captain Cold, so she is learning under Sub-Zero, on the condition that Kolin doesn't preach to him about the Miraha prophecy of the Illuminati. There's a rumor that she is making a play for the Dragon Medallion, but Kolin denies it.
  • There are two things that can set Kolin off: those who oppose Gill and anyone with a military background. Guile can back the latter claim, since she did attack him. Since the Pantheon is home to several military deities, Kolin has to fight the urge to freeze them all.
    • Surprisingly, she does sympathize with Big Boss, having heard the story of how he killed The Boss and gained his current title, not to mention his goals of freeing humanity from Zero's influence. It's pretty clear that Big Boss is one soldier Kolin truly respects.
  • Kano has an unhealthy obsession with her, much to Kolin's annoyance. Even Gill is annoyed with Kano's desire regarding his secretary.
    • Kolin is also not a big fan of Sonya Blade or her ex-husband. But she is intrigued by the Mediterranean warrior bloodline, which Johnny had passed down to his daughter, Cassandra. Gill sees Cassie as a candidate to join his utopia, but Kolin must first learn to look past Cassie's family and friends.
  • As she is a blue-eyed blonde, Leatherface approached Kolin as a potential girlfriend when they first encountered each other. One Diamond Dust later, and Leatherface was left frozen in place, and Kolin walked away, muttering choice curse words in Russian.
  • Aside from being fluent in Russian and English, Kolin is quite fluent in Japanese. Due to the voice she uses to speak that language, however, people tend to get her confused with various deities in the Pantheon, such as Katsuragi, Gamora, Mistral, Pharah, and Temari Nara.
  • Kolin does not like Leopold Goenitz at all. She sees him as, in her words, "a false prophet worshiping a false god." She doesn't think too highly of the deified Hakkeshu either, despite the fact that most of them hate Goenitz due to his genocidal tendencies.
  • Black Orchid and Jago aren't too big on Kolin or her boss, because the Illuminati reminds them both of Ultratech. This animosity is mutual, as Kolin sees the siblings as a threat to the Illuminati's dream of a utopian paradise on Earth.
  • Struck up a strange friendship with the former High Councilor, Kal-El. Turns out that Kolin and Regime Supes have a lot in common, mainly due to losing their loved ones and their home. While his Regime was dismantled due in part to Batman and his Insurgency, Kolin believes that Kal-El could benefit from Gill's guidance.
  • Was very surprised and conflicted about the fact that the Illuminati had ascended itself in the Pantheon and seemed to be only vaguely connected to Gill and his allies. On the one hand, it shows the organization seems to be far larger in scope than even Bill Cipher has hinted at, with even Gill's vast dominion being but a fraction of its power. On the other hand, this would confirm that the prophecy of the Book of Miraha was not something Gill invented out of whole cloth, allowing her to further believe in her lord.

    Leonard Snart/Captain Cold 
Leonard Snart, God of Villains With Standards (Captain Cold, Mr. Freeze, Snart, Robber of ATMs)

    Tychus Findlay 
Tychus Findlay, God Who Was Trapped in Villainy (Convict 626, Scoundrel, Notorious Outlaw)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tychus.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Marine armor and chain gun
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Tattooed Crook, Criminal with A Job, Poisonous Friend, Boisterous Bruiser, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Wields Chain Gun, Forcedly Encased in his Armor, Secretly Worked for Mengsk, Pilot the Odin
  • Domains: Forced, Villainy
  • Allies: Jim Raynor, Heavy, Serious Sam
  • Enemies: Arcturus Mengsk, Amanda Waller
  • He was an old partner-in-crime with Jim Raynor, until he was eventually arrested. He was pleased to be released later, free to drink with his buddy again and help him make money off the artifacts. However, it was a ploy; when he was allowed to be free by Arcturus Mengsk, the condition was that he had to assassinate Sarah Kerrigan, or else Mengsk would shut down his major organs via his suit. Thus, Raynor had to shoot him after de-infesting her in Char, knowing about Zeratul's warning of the prophecy which requires her survival.
    • He ascended from the afterlife due to his forced villainy, both figuratively and literally. However, because his kill-switch is no longer active in the Pantheon, Tychus turned against Mengsk and rejoined his buddy.
  • He is sometimes seen drinking with the Heavy Weapons Guy due to their fascination with big guns.
  • He has an interesting relationship with Sarah Kerrigan; on the one hand, he was ordered by Mengsk to assassinate her in exchange for his freedom. On the other hand, Kerrigan wished that he went through with it; she believes she deserves no less. Admittedly, he had second thoughts about carrying the mission out and tried to persuade Jimmy out of a mission to Char, and even stated that he would rather have died by the hand of someone like Jim than to be killed by his controller.
  • Despite no longer working for Mengsk, he is still unable to remove his armor, as it is welded shut. So far, little progress have been made in freeing him from his suit. Fortunately, he has a bathroom system in his suit.
  • He once heard that Raynor partnered with someone named Serious Sam since he reminds him of Tychus himself. When Tychus met Sam, he found he couldn't agree more. With their love of guns, they will both help fight the Zerg infestation.
  • In one universe, Tychus died and was left behind on Char, where he was later resurrected and infested by the Zerg. Unlike Stukov, he was assimilated by the Swarm with memories of him being shot by Raynor. This memory was always lasting, and he ended up losing himself to the influence of the Hive Mind.
    Tychus: I sure hope she was worth it... Jimmy...
    • On the other hand, one universe showed him to have escaped from New Folsom, likely avoiding the deal with Mengsk.
  • Tychus is known to be a smoker; more specifically of cigars. However, when he is sent to fight in the Nexus, he can't have his cigar on the battlefield. Fortunately, he's good at smuggling the smokes, although it can go horribly wrong easily; for example, it might fall into his armor and he'll start freaking out and cursing a blue streak.
  • He loves big war machines, due to having to pilot the Odin, though in his opinion, some of the Mechas available to the Pantheon pale in comparison to the Odin, with its heavy cannons, missile launchers (which always launch missiles in a barrage), and a dedicated nuke cannon.
  • Though he is technically a criminal sent to fight in his armor, he admits to not like the idea of working with Amanda Waller. For example, her having a remote bomb on the Suicide Squad if they don't obey her is similar to Mengsk having had a trigger to shut down his major organs if he didn't kill Kerrigan.
  • While he's not the type to be very sentimental, he sympathizes with Sophitia Alexandra due to her being forced by Nightmare and Tira to do their bidding or else they would harm her daughter.
  • He was very annoyed when Lucio reminded him of all the times he broke Raynor's jukebox. "Look, it's just one damn jukebox, kid; if ya like it, buy another one. Should be plenty of 'em in the Pantheon. And that money ya got from DJ-ing shoulda do the job..."
  • "Hell, it's about time!"

Demigods

    Kronk 
Kronk Pepikrankenitz, God of Minions that Aren't Really Evil (Kronkie-Poo)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/emperorsnewgroove333.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His hat
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (formerly Lawful Neutral)
  • Portfolio: Gentle Giant, Supreme Chef, Capable of Speaking Squirrel, Genius Ditz
  • Domains: Amicability, Personality
  • Herald: Bucky the Squirrel
  • Allies: Squirrel Girl, Remy the Rat, Popeye, Tohru, Lazlo, Raj, & Clam, GIR
  • Odd Friendship: Conker, Screwy Squirrel, Ratatoskr
  • Additional Relations: Yzma
  • Kronk is the right-hand man for Yzma, a deranged woman who wants to take over an entire kingdom via killing its current emperor. In stark contrast, Kronk is a very kind-hearted, if very ditzy, man who knows how to cook (he's especially fond of spinach puffs) and knows what squirrels are saying. It says a lot when he officially severed ties with Yzma after she insulted his cooking and loudly declaring that she never liked his spinach puffs. It makes one wonder why a man like him would get involved with a megalomaniacal woman's schemes if Kronk never acted that evil and never had any ill-will against Kuzco to begin with.
  • Even though Kronk and Yzma have severed ties with each other, some have argued that there was a time where Kuzco attended school and Kronk was still working with Yzma in trying to oust Kuzco. Kronk didn't seem to be aware of such a thing, but Yzma made it clear that any additional work between her and Kronk isn't happening.
  • He makes visits to the House of Food to prepare various kinds of meals to visitors. In addition to the various meals he makes, Kronk knows kitchen talk quite well. While inside a kitchen, he saw a rat cook and was surprised to see that it was skilled at the job. It didn't stop him from becoming friends with Remy the Rat afterwards, though he has wondered if there exists a squirrel that is able to cook elaborate meals on its own.
  • Kronk found some good company in Tohru, another big man who used to work for someone evil and turned good after leaving the villain, even if Kronk's situation was far more ridiculous than that of Tohru's. Kronk sometimes makes meals for Tohru and his friends, though he does try to take into consideration the fact that Tohru doesn't like to eat fish.
  • Another not-that-evil minion who Kronk got along with is GIR, a robot who's possibly dumber than Kronk is and works for Zim, who is probably even more insane than Yzma is both in terms of goal and personality. GIR being a massive eater certainly gave Kronk a run for his money when it comes to cooking for him. Despite GIR eating more than just food during visits, the two are generally good friends. That said, even with multiple meetings between the two, Kronk doesn't appear to be aware of GIR having a Duty Mode and that it'd be better not to go near him when that is activated.
  • One of his talents involves being able to talk to squirrels. While he expected that there would be squirrels in the Pantheon, he didn't expect to be squirrels that are able to talk on their own. Even more surprising to him was that the squirrels that he could find weren't willing to talk to him initially. After some time, Conker was willing to put up with Kronk only because he wasn't mean and Screwy Squirrel wanted to hang out with him more because both found each other entertaining.
    • What Kronk didn't expect at all was finding someone who not only was able to talk to squirrels, but was able to use her communication skills with them to command the squirrels to do unusual feats in addition to having superpowers outside of that. Doreen Green was excited to find out another person capable of talking to squirrels and set out to meet Kronk. The meet-up involved Kronk cooking some spinach puffs for her and sharing his story about how he used to work for a villainess and quit the job. Doreen didn't really hold anything against Kronk since he never was evil despite who he used to work for and found his spinach puffs to be tasty. The two have become good friends since the meeting and some have wondered if the two are attracted to each other despite Doreen and Kronk not saying anything about those rumors.
    • Kronk later found out about Ratatoskr through a couple deities talking about the aforementioned rumor and was surprised to learn that a squirrel created that rumor according to the two. Given how Ratatoskr was a mythical figure of some kind, Kronk took it that Ratatoskr was the top god of squirrels, but was told that Ratatoskr was more of a messenger with a trickster streak rather than an all-powerful god that watches over squirrels. Kronk eventually found Ratatoskr and even with the squirrel loving to pull tricks on others and Kronk being part of a rumor made by Ratatoskr, the two get along pretty well. It helps that Kronk already gets along with other deities associated with squirrels and is very friendly overall.
  • Since he has done some work as a scout leader, Kronk was willing to take a job offer in handling Lazlo, Raj, & Clam for a few days. While the trio are certainly rowdy, he was able to get a handle of them. It helps that they think Kronk is someone worth being a scoutmaster and following the initial work, Kronk has become a part-time scoutmaster for the trio and has activities set up with them, including how to speak in "squirrel".
  • He is very good with kids and is known to play with many younger deities, including those that reside in the House of Family. He likes it for the most part, but he did hear that there were a handful of children who are much more problematic than normal to the point where they're very bratty and their behavior being almost akin to that of Yzma (minus the whole overthrowing the emperor thing, of course). Kronk was told via other deities who take care of children to be careful of the highly troublesome kids.
  • Upon being told that there was someone named Popeye who liked spinach, Kronk decided to try and look for him and see if the sailor was interested in trying some spinach puffs. Given that Popeye was already fond of spinach as is, he was willing to try out Kronk's spinach puffs and was pleasantly surprised to see someone make a good snack using spinach. Popeye sometimes visits Kronk to eat some spinach puffs in his downtime, though he still prefers his canned spinach whenever he needs to fight.

  • Enemies: The House of Justice, Franklin Clinton, Trevor Phillips, Hotel Moscow, Niko Bellic
  • On good terms: The House of FAITH
  • Complicated Relationships: Carl Johnson
  • Melvin Harris, also known as Big Smoke, was once the right hand man of Sweet Johnson and a loyal member of the Grove Street Families. However, Smoke later was corrupted by the ambition of being powerful and famous and decided to side with the corrupt cops of C.R.A.S.H. and organized the death of the mother of his best friends. However, even after he got what he wanted, he was struck down by CJ and realized that everything he did was become he became addicted to power and died saying that everyone was going to remember his name. His friend CJ regrets killing him but it was something that had to be done.
  • The House of Justice has kept a close eye on Big Smoke after his rise of power in the crack empire. However, since his mortal his influence has died down overtime and he might not even try to regain his power back.
  • CJ was confused when he saw his old buddy Smoke around the pantheon and actually confronted him. He hasn't forgotten that he was the one that betrayed him but Smoke actually regrets his actions. However, they decided to cut ties and never speak again.
  • Big Smoke ascension didn't sit well with a few other deities from his home franchise. Franklin found Smoke having too many similarities with Stretch, the man who constantly set up his friend Lamar and Trevor doesn't like him because of how he betrayed his friends (He doesn't take betrayal lightly). Niko Bellic is also another one who doesn't like Smoke, given his backstabbing actions remins him a lot of Dimitri Rascalov.
    • On the other hand, Tommy Vercetti is open to make negotiations with Smoke, provided he becomes one of his henchmen in the drug business. Smoke is considering the offer, but doesn't want to fall into the same trap as before.
  • He is not welcome in the House of Friendship given his betrayal. Big Smoke agrees this is a fair punishment.
  • He doesn't have the best relationships with Hotel Moscow, mostly because he had a few run-ins with the Los Santos Russian mafia and even tasked his friends CJ in getting rid of a few members for him.
  • Smoke can be often found in the House of Food, not surprising given his love for eating. He always makes a particular order everytime he goes.
  • It is adviced to never enter his temple without his permission. He has become very paranoid ever since his mortal death and since he no longer has the Ballas protection, you'll be surprised at what he is going to do to you.
  • People have asked him about following the damn train. He still blames CJ for those countless failures.
    • It's not unlikely to see Smoke in the House of Travel chasing trains.
  • Apparently he is a devout christian, so he sometimes visits the house of FAITH. He can believe that he became a god after death, so he must be right that people would remember his name.
  • "Respect has to be earned Sweet. Just like money."
  • Can also be found in the House of Life and Death.
