Greater Gods

    Kurama (Naruto
Kurama, God of Multiple-Tailed Beasts (Nine-Tails Fox Demon, Nine Tails, Kyuubi)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/naruto_kurama.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: the Eight Trigrams Seal
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, but comes off as Chaotic Evil. Now Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Kitsune, Massive Size, Being Housed in a Jinchuriki, Being Composed Mostly of Hatred, protecting His Host as Needed, Tsundere, Siding with Naruto, Looking Like an Animal While Being Anything But
  • Domains: Hatred, Foxes, Chakra, Destruction, Natureture), Redemption, Leadership
  • Followers: Shippo, Kongiku and Yuzuruha, Ninetales, Saya, Kunou, Yasaka, Kyubi, Kaden, Selkie
  • Allies: Naruto, Ungoliant
  • Enemies: Orochimaru, Sasuke Uchiha, Godzilla, Steve Irwin, Mokkan, SCP-953
  • Technically speaking, as Kurama is still sealed within Naruto, he serves as Kurama's shrine within the Pantheon.
    • Thus, any communication with Kurama has to be done either through psychic links, or using Naruto as a middle man.e
    • That said, he still has a conventional temple here so that his followers can congregate somewhere.
  • Has been let out of his host a few times in the Pantheon, with the required hands at the ready for such procedures. The first time he got out, he drew the attention of Godzilla, which led into a clash that lasted for seven hours before the two were tired enough that the fight could be called off. The Nine Tails now has a chip off his shoulder towards the lizard.
  • Out of either respect for Naruto or his own obliviousness, Luffy has yet to attempt to tame the fox demon.
  • Certain events have called into question whether or not Kurama will willingly and officially join the GUAG. The fox refuses profusely.
  • Definitely not to be confused with the Bishōnen fox demon who has control over plants, Kurama ''Minamio'', who resides in the House of Nature.
  • First applied for the post of God of Eldritch Beasts, but settled for this throne when he found that Ungoliant had already taken the post, and he didn't fancy being eaten by a giant spider.
  • His Norwegian worshippers keep praying for him to reveal what sound he and other foxes/kitsunes make. The reason for this is because they have some...rather strange guesses.
    • Kurama finally answered their question, if only to shut them up, by sending a fox to a group of his worshippers one day to sit nearby and make this sound. The poor folks were terrified, but a video of it was recorded by one of the followers, the clip was spread around, and nobody has bothered Kurama about it since.
  • He is not overly fond of Mokkan, due to the Marlfox's habit of betraying everything and everyone he's ever met. Bets are being placed on how much Mokkan's going to regret trying to betray Kurama.
  • Contrary to popular belief, Ahri is not the same kind of creature as Kurama. She's a gumiho, not a kitsune. Kurama prefers that his followers, among other people, get these facts straight.
  • The Tails Clan does not view him as their god or anything like that. Kurama doesn't really care that much either way.
  • Tends to take charge of situations when with his allies, having once been called a Captain.
  • When the Beasts were freed and planned to go to their homes, they needed someone to remain sealed to serve as communications. Kurama was chosen with minimal reluctance on his part, though most have caught on to his attachment to Naruto.

    The Tyranids 
The Tyranid Hive Fleets, The Horde of Alien Locusts (The Great Devourer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nidseverywhere.jpg
  • Collectively, Greater Deities
  • Symbol: The Tyranid insigina
  • Theme Song: Xeno Presence
  • Alignment: Neutral Hungry
  • Portfolio: Alien Kudzu, Bug Wars, Combat Tentacles, Extreme Omnivores, Healing Factor, Hive Minds, Living Ships, Living Weapons, Lots and LOTS of Teeth, Multi-Armed and Dangerous, Organic Technology, Psychic Static, Tyranoform, Endless Numbers, 'Nid Rush
  • Domains: Space, Hunger, Swarms
  • Rivals: The Facehuggers and the Xenomorphs, The Flood, Ungoliant, The Swarm
  • Enemies: Just about anyone, but primarily the Imperium of Mankind, the House of the Undead, Galactus, Unicron, The Lich, Mogo, Fix-It Felix, Wreck-It Ralph, Vanellope, Jim Raynor
  • While they are considered part of the Pantheon, they are, thankfully, locked outside of it with a magic seal that prevents their entry and are not to be let in unless it is an extremely dire situation and there is no better alternative.
    • The place that holds the Tyranid seal is a temple devoted to them that is located deep in the jungles of this very house. Said temple is guarded by a magically bound Carnifex who has been lovingly named "Cuddlefex" by some of the more intelligent members of the Bestiary.
  • Resembles the Xenomorphs, leading some of the Imperium to theorize Xenomorphs are Tyranids that Slaanesh got his/her hands on. It is not known what might happen if a Facehugger latches onto a Tyranid, but it'd be pure Nightmare Fuel and the Court of the Gods has forbidden anyone from letting the two next to each other.
  • The Tyrandis are after one and only one thing; to consume all that breathes. They'll consume every bit of organic matter and resources on a planet down to the bedrock, and leave the now lifeless planet behind to search for more. Their hunger is on par with the Swarm, and as such the two often butt heads. As does Ungoliant.
  • Often engages in a great battle with The Flood, who seeks to assimilate the Tyranids into itself, or at least turn them into willing soldiers. For now, they are at a stalemate.
  • Despite being able to eat almost anything, the Grox are completely indigestible to the Tyranids; something which greatly frustrates them but they can't be bothered dealing with. They also aren't able to digest any of the undead, which give them food poisoning, and while the House of Toxicity isn't that much of a problem, the Lich is. Mogo also screwed them over when they tried to raze the planet.
  • Even they are completely out-classed by the planet-eating Galactus and Unicron who ended up eating them instead and freaking out the hive mind.
  • For some strange reason, some of their Genestealers have developed an obsession with taking people's pants, leaving their victims embarrassed but generally unharmed.
  • Felix, Ralph and Vanellope are concerned over the matter of Tyranids, due to their similarities to the Cy-Bugs.
  • Evidence suggest that the Tyranids are actually running away from something else. Given what the 41st millennium is like, most don't want to imagine what that threat might be if the 'Nids don't consider the insanity that is the Milky Way galaxy frightening.

Intermediate Gods

    Baloo and Bagheera 
Baloo and Bagheera, Dual Deities of The Animal Language (Papa Bear, Ol' Iron Paws, The Big Balooski (Baloo only); Baggy, Bags, Cousin Cat, Black Panther (Bagheera only) )

  • Intermediate Gods
  • Symbol: The footprints of a sloth bear and leopard surrounded by foliage
  • Theme: The Bare Necessities; alternatively, TaleSpin
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (For Bagheera), Chaotic Good (For Baloo)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domain: Animals, Nature, Law, Language, Music
  • Heralds: Chil the Kite & Kit
  • High Priest: Zoboomafoo
  • Allies:
  • On Good Terms With:
  • Enemies: Shere Khan, Napoleon, Scar, The Hyenas, Koba, Mojo Jojo, Tai Lung, Lord Shen, The Sharptooth, [[Pantheon/PrehistoricBeasts Riptor, Indominus Rex, Clockwerk & Neyla, The Firebird, Mr. Burns, Ghetsis Harmonia, Dr. Eggman, Cruella De Vill, Hexxus
  • Conflicted Opinion: King Louie (Baloo likes him, Bagheera doesn't, and they all had their share of conflict), Terra, King Kong, Sun Wukong, Spirit, snake-based deities
  • Complicated Relationship: Walt Disney
  • Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther arrived in the Pantheon upon the request of their former charge, Mowgli. The man-cub spoke highly of his animal friends and convinced the Court of the Gods to ascend them. All three were happy to reunite with each other, especially since Baloo and Bagheera had no idea Mowgli was in the Pantheon.
  • Baloo originally served as High Priest to Winnie The Pooh, but decided to drop the position to take up a new godly position. The two bears still remain good friends, and will often enjoy a pot of honey in each other's company.
  • Every now and again, the pair have taught special classes to the students of the Elysium Academy. Their lectures often revolve around The Law of the Jungle, how to survive in the wilderness, and learning the Master-Words of the Jungle Peoples. Interestingly, Baloo often ends up teaching the lessons to the students, with him adopting a more stern and gruff persona whilst Bagheera becomes more laid-back and a bit of Big Brother Mentor. whenever that happens, Bagheera will sit back, relax and listen, impressed by the bear's methods of teaching.
    • The students aren't the only ones who come for the lessons. Various denizens from the Houses of Beast and Nature often stop by to observe, and as a result, many in the Pantheon use the Master Words to get out of any situation involving the animal deities.
  • It was through Mowgli that Baloo and Bagheera were introduced to Simba, Timon & Pumbaa. After an initial misunderstanding - Simba thought Bagheera was going to eat his friends - the five animals managed to get things cleared up and became good friends, though Baloo and Mowgli are more often seen hanging out with Timon and Pumbaa, the four finding comparisons between the Bare Necessities and Hakuna Matata.
    • In turn, their friendship with Simba allowed for the pair to meet with his father Mufasa, who respected their teaching skills and asked them to aid Simba with becoming a good king. Scar on the other hand has shown hostility to the pair not only for allying themselves with his nephew, but also being friends with Mowgli. Both Bagheera and Baloo have compared Scar to Shere Khan, and are ready to take on the disgraced lion if push comes to shove.
  • When the two were brought to meet Mowgli's fellow Nature Preservers, Bagheera personally thanked Tarzan and San for watching over the young man-cub in their absence. From that point onwards, the older humans became allies with the panther, helping him with keeping things in order and looking out for Mowgli whenever he's off adventuring.
  • Many of the other feral children in the Pantheon have gotten along well with Baloo and Bagheera, though it has been divided between the two. Hareta and George of the Jungle hang out more with the fun-loving Baloo, while the older, more mature N and Eliza Thornberry can be seen speaking with Bagheera in private, the former practicing the Master-Words to better understand the other non-Pokémon animal deities.
  • One day, Lord Shen had caught the Iriomote mountain cat kitten Maya spying on his scheming. He decided to make an example and captured the tiny feline. It was Bagheera who came to the rescue, managing to fight off the Peacock long enough to escape with the kitten in tow. Maya's owner Sakaki was so grateful for the Panther's help, becoming close friends afterward. In fact, Sakaki often turns to Bagheera to watch over Maya when she's away at school.
  • After encountering T'Challa and hearing what had happened between him and Mowgli, all Bagheera could do was chuckle to himself. The two are on good terms, with Bagheera and fellow feline Eugene Gallardo meeting up and discussing their daily businesses in the Pantheon.
  • There has been some confusion as to what kind of bear Baloo is. Most know him to be a sloth bear (Melursus ursinus), though some disagree, claiming him to be a Himalayan brown bear (Ursus arctos isabellinus). When it was brought up Baloo merely shrugged, saying it doesn't matter what species he is as long as he can continue doing the things he loves.
  • Having dealt with King Louie and the Bandar-logNote  in the past, Bagheera is hesitant around most of the deified primates in the Pantheon. Mojo Jojo's antics and prolonged ranting greatly annoys the serious panther, though Sun Wukong is even worse. But while he can deal with those two, Bagheera was seen awestruck by the sight of King Kong.
    • On the other hand, Baloo gets along well with Donkey and Diddy Kong, often dancing with them in the House of Theatre and Spectacle. But one thing is for certain, both mammals have a great distrust of Koba for his bloodthirsty nature, and breaking the law of not killing other apes. They also hate Napoleon for his treatment of his fellow animals and wanting to be more like a human, mirroring King Louie's own desires. Despite this, the panther does respect Caesar for being a good leader to his clan and for wanting peace over war with man.
  • Have a mixed opinion of many of the serpentine deities in the Pantheon, due to past experiences with the python Kaa. In some timelines, he is an ancient creature, feared by many but still serving as an ally and friend to Mowgli. In others, he is a hypnotizing villain who wants nothing more than to eat the man-cub. There's also a timeline where he... is actually a she. Nevertheless, Baloo and Bagheera dread the day Kaa ascends, hoping that the version that is selected will be their ally.
  • Both Baloo and Bagheera have a distrust of humans who seek to poach animals and destroy the environment, due partly to the pair being considered Endangered Species. In particular, they oppose Looten Plunder for wanting to clear-cut the Seeone Hills, Mr. Burns and Cruella De Vil for wanting to turn them into fur coats (or in Baloo's case sloth bear underwear), Dr. Eggman for turning animals into robots and Ghetsis Harmonia for abusing both Pokémon and his son N.
    • Despite their fears of being hunted, it came as a shock to most when the archer Atalanta approached Baloo and struck up a conversation with him. After learning about her origins and how she was raised by bears, the pair became close friends, and on occasion, one can find them singing about the Bare Necessities. Baloo has even allowed the Chaste Huntress to call him "Ol' Iron Paws".
      • And speaking of Iron Paws, Baloo found new sparring partners in the form of the Canadian boxer Bear Hugger, and Russian street fighter Zangief. The trio have been seen wrestling with one another, with Baloo giving instructions on how to fight like a "real bear". So far the matches have mainly ended in friendly draws, but once boxing season starts up, then all three won't hold back.
  • For all the friends they made upon ascension, both Baloo and Bagheera gained a fair number of enemies as well. Both Tai Long and Lord Shen have shown hostility towards the pair and it doesn't help that the panther and bear became friends with Po. There is also the trio of Riptor, Indominus rex and the Sharptooth, who have all attempted to kill and eat Mowgli in the past. The three theropods have made the mammal gods nervous by their mere presence, but Bagheera knows that despite their fearsome appearances, they can easily be defeated.
  • Both mammals respect the Spring Sprite for bringing spring to the world and for keeping the forest vibrant. On the same note, they utterly fear the Firebird and Hexxus for their desire for environmental destruction.
  • One time, Bagheera had a run-in with the wild horse known only as Spirit, who mistook the former for a mountain lion. Not much is known about what exactly went down but nowadays the panther keeps his distance, not wanting to rile up the Mustang any further.
  • Many in the Pantheon were caught off-guard when they learned Baloo is an expert pilot, having worked as a seaplane operator in an alternate universe. Not only that, but some of his piloting feats caused even Team Star Fox to do a second take. Even Bagheera was surprised by this and questioned the bear about it. The response he got...
    Baloo: What can I say? I've got a few tricks up these furry sleeves.
  • Their relationship with Terra, Ventus, and Aqua is... interesting. Apparently, all three Keyblade wielders made visits to Bagheera and Baloo's homeworld in the past, though none of them can remember the details. Regardless, both animals formed friendships with Ventus and Aqua respectively; Baloo looking out for Ven as he does with Mowgli, and Bagheera with Aqua due to their maturity and shared desire to protect their friends. Terra though is up for debate, with the pair suspecting that he could have been tricked by King Louie to kidnap Mowgli. No incidents have happened as of yet but everyone has their eyes open.
  • The pair have a very complicated relationship with Walt Disney, which stems from the decision to change up the original Kipling story to be more light-hearted and family-friendly. Despite this though, they do owe Walt for keeping their story alive and well in the cultural mindset and were saddened by his passing in 1966. Note  When they met again in the Pantheon, Walt thanked the pair for helping carry the film with them, and was happy with how the final product turned out.
  • The pair were immediately on edge when they found out Shere Khan was in the Pantheon, and decided to keep an eye out to make sure he doesn't cause any trouble, at least to Mowgli or their other allies.
  • Some of the Russian gods have wondered why Bagheera doesn't sound like a female and doesn't have cubs around. Understandably, he was thoroughly confused by their comments.

Lesser Gods

    Asterion/The Minotaur 
Prince Asterion, God of Beasts Within Mazes (The Minotaur, The Beast of Minos, Asterius, Asterios, Berserker, Ferdinand, the Kythotaur, SCP-432-1)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/minotaur_4.jpg

Minotauros 
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: An eagle-eye view of the Labyrinth itself
  • Theme Song: His God of War boss battle
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil (Neutral Good around Diana of Themyscira)
  • Portfolio: Half-Human Hybrid Because Of The Queen's Bestiality (the gods are to blame), A Load of Bull (the OG Bull-Man), True Name Means "Starry One", To Serve Man, Beast in the Maze
  • Domains: Bulls, Monsters, Abominations, Hybrids, Cannibalism, Monsters
  • Allies: Frankenstein's Monster, Piggsy, Rajang
  • Odd Friendship with: Mordred
  • On speaking terms with: Miltank, Ferdinand
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Khazrak (but not Gorthor), The Fabrication Machine
  • Enemies: Poseidon, Percy Jackson, Kratos, The SCP Foundation, Zebediah Killgrave, The Big Friendly Giant, Baine Bloodhoof, The Hunter(Bloodborne), The Monster Hunters, Scarface, Hoss Delgado, Jareth
  • Pitied by: The Doctor
  • Opposes: Dante Alighieri
  • Prince Asterion is the monster of King Minos, and beast of the Labyrinth. Known better as the Minotaur, it was placed in the heart of the seemingly inescapable maze of the Labyrinth. Having a taste for flesh, King Minos would have youths and maidens sacrificed to it, and Athenian king Aegeus sacrificed to avert a plague. Theseus would volunteer to slay, and using a trick with string was able to escape after slaying the beast.
  • Has attracted a number of monster hunters interested in the bounty that's been placed on it, or for Scarface an interesting challenge. This has only angered the beast. The Onion has released an article that the Labyrinth is used by the military to interrogate terrorists, which Asterion has revealed in a tell-all audiobook.
  • The Minotaur finds its origins to be rather embarrassing. His mother, the Queen Pasiphe, was cursed to fall in love with a bull the king refused to sacrifice to Poseidon because of how beautiful it was. Through a hollow wooden cow, the shameful deed was done. It's aware of the disgusting details, and has come to sympathize with Mordred since he's the royal bastard of a shameful incestuous union, the complex of which drives his villainy. He seems to get along with Rajang as well, being a vicious minotaur crossed with a gorilla with a far less gross origin to it.
  • His abominable origins and aggressive temperament have some within the House of Beast on edge, however with minotaurs actually being a race in many parts of the multiverse, he feels less shameful about his existence. He's actually relieved to be part of the Trope Pantheon since he comes off as much less out of place.
  • Loathes Theseus, and by extension Poseidon. This isn't just because Poseidon is Theseus' father, but because he cursed his mother in the first place. In that way, he could be considered a Child by Rape. For this reason he hates Zebediah Killgrave for using his Compelling Voice to make women sleep with him, which has resulted in the Purple Children.
  • The original bull-man, the Minotaur wanted to ascend with A Load of Bull but Baine Bloodhoof already had it. Baine doesn't like the minotaur for being a savage cannibal, even if he's the OG. The Big Friendly Giant would rather the Minotaur grow out of it and embrace his human nature, but the Minotaur isn't hearing of it, claiming "What did humans ever do to me? Besides my own step-father locking me in a maze and treating me like an abomination".
  • The SCP Foundation identified the Labyrinth as what's inside SCP-432, and the Minotaur SCP-432-1. Well it's heavily implied, and the author of the document has confirmed it's the case. To prevent him causing a rampage, they made sure the temple was his labyrinth. This enraged him to no end. It hates Jareth to no end for representing the Labyrinth, seeing him as a symbol of his imprisonment.
  • Dante attests that the Minotaur can be found in the seventh level of Hell, with a bull's body and a man's head. It is the infernal guardian for this circle of violent sinners, and managed to bypass him by taunting the beast. The Doctor believes this in inaccurate, and wonders if it is related to the Nimons. Like the Minotaur he found, he pities the condition that Prince Asterion was left in and believes being there is why it is so monstrous anyway.
  • Generally a loner, however Prince Asterion does have friends. Piggsy is a cannibal driven that way by madness, so the Minotaur sympathizes with his condition. He found an accord with Frankenstein's Monster, since he very well know what it feels to be an unnatural creature abandoned by their "fathers". That feeling of being or made unnatural might be why it likes the Fabrication Machine, but it's a tenuous and more one-sided fondness given the Fabrication Machine's goals.
  • It has a more strained alliance with Khazrak. They're both monstrous beast-men, however some of the things that the Beastmen do disturb the Minotaur somewhat. Also it doesn't like how their race uses bestiality to increase their numbers. Still, Khazrak at least has some standards. Gorthor has absolutely none, however, and the Minotaur doesn't want to be near him.
  • Usually a villain, but in the DC Universe he had a change of heart when Wonder Woman spared him. He serves as the chef of her embassy. Though remaining a villain in the pantheon, he does behave around her. However he prefers to be called the Kythotaur and Kythira is where he comes from, instead of Ferdinand. There's another bull named Ferdinand, and in this more placid form the Minotaur gets along with him. It's hoped he could function as a Morality Chain when not so nice.
  • He lets Miltank call him Ferdinand because she's a bovine and she's so nice. She's unnerved by him, but appreciates him behaving around her. The Master of Chaldea also keeps him in check (and refers to him by his actual name). As a Servant, he goes by Asterios and is under the Berserker rank. He looks much better in this form, having a human face but bull horns. Despite being aligned as Chaotic Evil, he's a rather nice and loyal person in this form.
  • Apparently it's also the berserk form of Shadow Labrys that exists independent of Shadow Labrys, after Shadow Labrys became a separate personality of Labrys after she unintentionally stored her data, it became an actual Persona to Shadow Labrys.

    Billy Hatcher 
Billy Hatcher, Divine Guardian of Weird Eggs
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/asr_billy.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Legendary Chicken Suit, or just the helmet
  • Theme Music: G.I.A.N.T.E.G.G.; alternatively, Chant This Charm
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Widget Series, Badass Adorable, Egg MacGuffin, Kid Hero, Fingerless Gloves, Color-Coded Elements, Improbable Weapon User
  • Domains: Eggs, Morning, Heroism
  • Heralds: Rolly Roll, Bantam Scrambled, Chick Poacher, the Chicken Elders
  • Allies: Sonic the Hedgehog, AiAi, Solaire of Astora, Tails, Knuckles, NiGHTS, Mega Man, Yoshi , Volcarona, Princess Celestia, Chibiterasu, Amaterasu, Django, Leona, Ness, Finn the Human, The Powerpuff Girls, Steven Universe, Amigo
  • Enemies: The Crow, Grand Duke of Owls, Nightmare Moon, David Zappa, Yami, Diana, Balanar
  • Morning Land is a place where this kid and his friends reside, and as one might guess, it's a sunny place. Things were normal until the place came under attack by Dark Raven and his goons, who wanted to cast an eternal night there. Billy donned the Legendary Chicken Suit and used it to save Morning Land. Along the way, he could use eggs and with sufficient care, it could hatch things like helpful creatures (including Sonic the Hedgehog) and powerups.
    • Sonic actually wasn't the only outside help Billy could get back in the kid's initial journey. Tails, Knuckles, and even NiGHTS and Amigo could be found in certain eggs that Billy could find. If needed, they will come by his aide to help him out in combat.
  • With his ascension, he serves as an additional member to those who protect the sun against malevolent night deities. However, Billy was told via Princess Celestia that there were a few benevolent moon deities such as Princess Luna, Usagi Tsukino, Tyrande Whisperwind, and Yuri Tsukikage. Billy has acknowledged this and has focused his effort on the villains who want an eternal night.
  • Much of Billy's mobility comes from the use of the eggs he finds, along with the powerups and aid that comes with it. If an egg gets destroyed, there's not much he can do. This is partially why Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and NiGHTS tend to accompany him on his missions, provided that they aren't magically stuffed inside an egg.
  • Billy was invited by Sonic and a few other Sega characters to participate in a race. Somehow, Billy wasn't able to arrive for a later round and on top of that, his friends were watching the later races, but Billy wasn't present at all. He hasn't really said if he was busy that time or not.
  • Billy gets along smoothly with AiAi, another Sega character who uses a sphere as one method of travel. The difference is that Billy rolls spheres (eggs) to get better movement speed while the monkey is inside a sphere (a ball) for improved mobility.
  • There is a significant difference in how he and Yoshi use their eggs. While Yoshi simply throws the eggs at enemies, Billy has to run over enemies with the eggs (in addition to the hatching bit). Despite these differences, Billy is on good terms with Yoshi, mostly since the eggs the dinosaur throws don't really have anything inside them (aside from the occasional coin).
  • A small number of deities (mainly the ones who like to make fun of others for petty reasons) have mocked the Legendary Chicken Suit for being a ridiculous costume for any hero to wear. Although Billy was a little surprised when he tried on the suit for the first time, he's gotten used to wearing it.
  • He has a really strong disdain towards The Crow, mainly for reminding him of what he has fought against back in Morning Land. That and this aforementioned crow is most likely creepier than the ones he fought against.
  • For whatever reason, people tend to think that his Spelling Song is done as G-I-N-T-E-G-G, without the A of course (to be fair, there's lack of enunciation between the I and A). Billy has tried to correct the matter, but SomecallmeJohnny hasn't let Billy hear the end of it.
    SomecallmeJohnny: That's some good G.I.N.T. E.G.G.
  • Unsurprisingly, Billy gets along really well with other kid heroes such as Ness and the Powerpuff Girls. With the possible exception of Steven Universe, most of Billy's kid hero friends aren't really interested in trying on the Legendary Chicken Suit.
  • No one really knows who exactly laid those eggs that Billy utilizes. Even the House of Knowledge got really frustrated just trying to figure out how those eggs came to be.
    • And for that matter, there's the other question of what those eggs taste like if Billy fails to hatch them. The kid is very hesitant to roll his eggs near the House of Food since there's bound to be a handful of hungry gods there wanting to try out these eggs.

    Crash Bandicoot 
Crash Bandicoot, God of Species Rarely Represented in Fiction (Willy the Wombat, Infernal Bandicoot, Orange Delivery Boy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crash_bandicoot_nsane.png
  • Lesser God (Intermediate God with three Aku Aku masks)
  • Symbol: His extra life mugshot and a Wumpa Fruit.
  • Theme Songs: N. Sanity Beach, The Great Hall (shared with Tawna), Crash Bandicoot 2 Warp Room, Time Twister, Crash Cove
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Spin attacks, Those who are off in their own little world, Star of a big Playstation game, Seldom-Seen Species, Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal, Those who are easily distracted
  • Domain: Marsupials, Spinning, Collection, Gaming
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Ripper Roo
  • Friendly Enemy: Neo Cortex (though Cortex won't admit to such)
  • Enemies:
  • Odd Friendship: The Tasmanian Devil
  • Crash Bandicoot is an unusual marsupial who was mutated by Dr. Cortex to serve as the general of his Cortex Commandoes, but the process never quite finished like he expected and Crash ended up escaping his facility, only to return for his girlfriend Tawna and trashing all of Cortex henchment. The bandicoot went to become Cortex biggest headache and one of the most popular platformer mascots of his generation. While he underwent a period where he dissapeared, he eventually and triunfally returned with a retelling of his first adventure.
  • Crash Bandicoot was ascended into the Pantheon by Polygon Man, who forced him to fight Spyro as the main event in Round 2 of Polygon Man’s Battle Royale. Unfortunately for him, Crash and Spyro had been tricked into fighting each other once before by Cortex and Ripto, and they didn’t fall for the same trick twice. They vowed to put a stop to Polygon Man's scheme with the help of Sora, Lightning, Riku, Dante, and the ascended competitors of the first Battle Royale.
    • Crash and Spyro would later try to formally settle their rivalry in a one-on-one duel, with Aku Aku and Sparx present to spectate. Unfortunately, Sparx ended up getting hurt before the fight as a result of an accidental hit by Crash (who mistook Sparx for an ordinary bug in a moment of distraction), resulting in Spyro turning into Dark Spyro. Dark Spyro very quickly overwhelmed and vaporized both Crash and Aku Aku (who tried to protect Crash) and had to be stopped as he rampaged around the Pantheon.
  • Ever since his inception, Crash has had a fierce rivalry with both Mario and Sonic being the mascots of the rival companies that published his games. Nonetheless, Crash is a good sport and actually gets along rather well with them, moreso with Sonic since he also had to deal with Arch-Enemy Mad Scientist Dr. Robotnik.
  • Crash presence was enough of a motivator for his sister Coco to eventually ascend and get a temple of her own. The first thing she did was berate Crash for not telling her earlier but thing quickly were mended after she gave him a big hug.
  • Parappa was overjoyed that Crash had finally come to the Pantheon, since they were such good friends in the PlayStation era, but hadn’t seen each other since.
  • He was formerly a follower of Androids 17 and 18 along with his sister Coco. Now that Crash is in the Pantheon himself, he remains on good terms with them and is always ready to help stop Cell whenever he tries to absorb the Androids. Later down the line her little sister also joined in to support the Android twins.
  • Has joined a sports team alongside Jak, Daxter and Nathan Drake. They call themselves the Naughty Dogs. Daxter wanted the Naughty Ottsels, after his bar in Haven City, but he was outvoted.
  • He has bonded with Balthier over their mutual dislike of mad scientists and offered Crash to be a part of his crew. Crash politely turned him down, but accepts Balthier help whenever Dr. Cortex is up to no good.
  • Caesar is pleased to see that Crash doesn't let the fact that he was experimented upon by humans get him down. If Koba ascends, Crash has agreed to meet him upon his ascension and introduce him to the Pantheon.
  • When the more aggressive residents of the Bestiary get out of control, Crash uses the powers of his mask friend Aku Aku to jack the beasts and calm them down. Eventually Aku Aku himself ascended to aid Crash, at the cost of bringing his Evil Twin Uka Uka and share a temple with him. Crash is not happy about the latter.
  • Unlike many half-dressed cartoon animals, Crash wears pants but nothing on his upper body.
  • When he receives Aku Aku’s protection three times, he becomes temporarily invulnerable to most damage. In this form, only pitfalls can harm him. To that end, in preparation for the final battle, the GUAG have arranged for three mask boxes to be placed near Crash’s location. The GUAE, on the other hand, have ordered Team Rocket to dig a number of holes in the hopes that he will fall in.
  • He's not exactly fond of the fact that Psycho Mantis made fun of him, and was glad that Snake shot him in the face mid-sentence.
  • Crash has decided to join the Skylanders after a few years of thinking, which has pleased his rival, Spyro the Dragon. Both are looking forward to duking it out again.
  • Crash got acquainted with the Tasmanian Devil, not only for being peculiar and rare seen marsupials, but also for being fond of using a Spin Attack. Plus, neither is very bright.
  • People have reportedly seen a rather strange version of Crash uttering his signature "WOAH!" in a rather bizarre way.
  • "WOAH!"

  • On Good Terms with: Mewtwo, Godzilla
  • Meet Detective Pikachu. While at first, he may look like any other Pikachu with a funny hat, he is actually much more than that. This Pikachu belonged to Harry Goodman, a detective of Ryme City investigating a series of strange events happening around the city but then he mysteriously disappeared to thin air, with his Pikachu remaining in the location where he was last seen. Once his son Tim came to the city, he discovered he and Pikachu could talk and understand each other and so they teamed up to find out what was going on in Ryme City and where the mysterious R gas comes from.
  • He wound up to the pantheon completely by accident after he got curious and decided to check a shifty looking portal that ended up bringing him here. He was then chosen to represent the title of Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal, given that his hat is what makes him distinct from other Pikachu. He accepted, since he felt the pantheon could use a detective like him.
  • Speaking of the other Pikachu, both are good friends and Detective Pikachu has even met regular Pikachu's trainer, Ash Ketchum, who he is a little jealous that he lets his Pikachu climb to his shoulder, unlike Tim. Sometimes, both Pikachus like to switch positions to pull a prank on unsuspecting deities.
  • Shortly after ascending, he was visited by Mewtwo. The latter thanked him for helping him free himself from Howard Clifford's control in one timeline and is wondering how this Pikachu still remembers all the events that transpired in that timeline considering that Pikachu had the essence of Harry Goodman inside him. Pikachu just responded that some things are better left unanswered and left shortly, leaving Mewtwo confused.
  • Became an unlikely ally of the Houses of Justice and Investigative Work. Few expected him to be of any help but Pikachu turned out to be surprisingly good at solving mysteries. He tends to work a lot with Sherlock Holmes and Watson, usually competing with the former to see who can solve the case better.
    • Pikachu is also a frequent partner for Cole Phelps, ever since the two got involved in a Pokémon related case that Phelps happened to be investigating with leads towards Team Rainbow Rocket. While Pikachu thinks his driving skills need improvement, he likes Phelps because at least he takes him somewhat seriously (even if he can't really understand Pikachu). This joint investigation has made the two keep an eye on certain members of Team Rainbow Rocket, with Giovanni, Lysandre and Ghetsis on top of their list.
    • Speaking of actual Partners, Pikachu found out late that all ascended Pokémon had a partner except him so he decided to look into potential candidates. While he was considering asking Sherlock to be his partner, he ended up noticing that he wasn't the only rodent detective and met Basil and Dawson, both being remarkably similar to Holmes and Watson. Both ended up accepting Pikachu's offer and while they are a bit taken aback by having a fellow rodent bigger than them, at least this Pikachu is in the side of good. On the other hand, this ended up putting Pikachu in Ratigan's radar, who scoffed at the idea of another mouse detective in the pantheon.
  • Sounds remarkably similar to Deadpool and the Merc with the Mouth quickly took notice of that. They hit it off immediately and Deadpool started calling him Pikapool, which Pikachu doesn't mind at all. Although he is a bit bothered that Deadpool keeps insisting that Pikachu should wear a custom made Deadpool suit made just for him. He tried it once and he felt it look a bit ridiculous but he secretly liked it anyway.
  • He can speak, but only to a select few. At first he only believed that only Tim was able to understand him and then he found out that there were other deities that can talk to animals. Batman can also understand him (Don't ask him how, you know what Batman will answer) and later invited Pikachu to the Super Café, where he met Superman who turned out to be a huge fan of him
  • He claims to always know about spoilers of the newer shows. Those who end up believing him are then surprised by a video of him dancing.
  • Likes coffee and frequently goes to the House of Food in his downtime to drink some. He tends to be joined by Fry and Godot, who also love coffee but unfortunately they also can't understand him and tend to find him mildly amusing.
  • Surprisingly familiar with Kaijus after he witnessed giant, genetically-altered Torterra emerge from the abandoned laboratory. He find Godzilla to be cool albeit a bit too destructive for his taste and surprisingly ended becoming friends with Gamera who was surprisingly friendlier than he looks. Pikachu even managed to convince the latter to aid him whenever Pikachu finds himself in trouble and Gamera was surprisingly ok with that.
  • He was mildly curious about the Super Smash Bros. tournament after hearing about it from the other Pikachu but that unfortunately just made him fall victim to Galeem's devastating attack and become a spirit alongside a hundred other characters. Once freed, he wanted nothing to do with the Smash Universe and decided to stick with detective work and once he heard that Galeem and Dharkon were part of the pantheon, he got a bit scared that they would break free and imprison him again. Thankfully, they have been subdued and locked up which he felt relieved after hearing that.

  • Just Friends (Maybe): Raven.
  • Enemies: Deathstroke, Lex Luthor, The Joker, Team Rocket, Granny Goodness
  • Ascended to the Pantheon after leading a rag tag-team of Titans who were not captured by the Brotherhood Of Evil and showing actual leadership skills.
  • Even though Gar is mostly seen as a laidback person by most of the Pantheons, he is actually a very capable person when he gets serious in a fight. He is especially dangerous when he get mad enough.
  • Once fought Deathstroke one on one and actually had the advantage.
  • Gar's animal transformations aren't just limited to Earth-based animals or dinosaurs and he can actually transform into mythical animals and alien beasts. He can even transform into a Pokémon.
    • Because of the aforementioned Pokémon transformation, he was captured by Team Rocket, mistaking him for a rare colored Pokémon. Fortunately, he was rescued by Greninja and blasted Team Rocket away.
  • Once had his shampoo bottle replaced with red dye by Victor Stone. He chased after his friend for "ruining" his beautiful green fur.
  • While he never noticed it before when they were both mortal, Gar can't help but ogle at Raven's legs. Was once caught by Raven when he transformed into a dog and "wolf whistled" at her. He was expecting a swat in the head, but to his surprise, he actually saw a small smile on her face.
  • Has been seen hanging around with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. While Leo, Donny, and Mikey don't mind him, Raph is mostly annoyed by him because it feels like there are two Michelangelos now.
  • Became instant friends with Teddie, finding his bear puns hilarious. The two have joined forces to try and make both Raven and Yukiko laugh. Emphasis on the try part.
  • An alternate version of this character was involved in an incident that led to his departure from the Teen Titans. Beast Boy does not enjoy comparisons to this character, though he's as willing to joke about it as anything else.
  • Has a seat in the House of Shapeshifters.

  • Pities: Renekton
  • Meet Nezu, the principal of U.A. Academy and ascended solely after learning that his school ended up warping into the Pantheon. Someone has to run the place, so he happily came here and settled a temple up with the approval of the court of gods.
  • No one can figure out what type of animal he is. Some say he is a mouse, others a dog and others even think he is some sort of bear. Nezu just chuckles when he hears other people theorize what he really is.
  • His quirk is "High Specs", which grants him Super Intelligence. What makes Nezu notable from other heroes is that he is an animal and quirks rarely manifest in non-human species. That's why in the past many people experimented on him, something he would rather not to talk about.
  • Even though in the past he was experimented by humans and has been implied to have been tortured considering his scar, Nezu still choose to be a force of good and work alongside other humans. That still doesn't mean, whenever he is given the opportunity, that he won't hurt humans, but at least he limits himself to those that really deserve it.
  • The one type of person Nezu won't hesitate to attack would be Mad Scientists. More so with the likes of who already experimented on animals, as it brings painful memories for him.
  • Koba was really dissapointed to learn that Nezu chose to ally with humans when both were experimented in the past by humans and don't have fond memories of it. Nezu wouldn't be that much different from Caesar in that sense, which pissed Koba even more and tried to kill the Principal for that but he was prepared for such a setup and planned ahead so Koba wouldn't reach him. Needless to say, the primate hates Nezu as much as Caesar and other humans.
    • It didn't help that Caesar himself allied himself with the Principal, mostly out of concern when he found out about what Koba tried to do. They remained friends after seeing that their goals aligned and their past are very similar.
  • A stroll through the House of Beast got him the chance to meet many different animals who are also quite intelligent. The ones he likes to chat the most are those who are mutated animals like Crash Bandicoot, who he heard from Caesar after he told him about the incident Crash got involved with Koba. Even with their contrasting personalities, Nezu does consider Crash a valuable ally and is glad him and his sister Coco didn't choose to be evil because they were mutated animals.
    • Another deity he befriended was the kind Babar, who was also a Civilized Animal like him although the circumstances for that were quite different. He is interested that he managed to build a city alongside his fellow elephants and is quite interested in seeing it.
  • Having heard of his constant visits to U.A. Academy, Nezu and Charles Xavier shared a cordial talk where they exchanged ideas in how to run their respective academies. He also understands the pain that must be seen as an outcast to society and hopes that Charles' world becomes more accepting like the one Nezu lives in.
  • Tea is one of Nezu's prefered drinks and he can often be seen visiting Iroh's temple since his find the kind of tea he serves exquisite.
  • He is fully aware that a traitor has infiltrated his school, but hasn't been able to figure out who could that person be. He did receive some additional help from Tony Stark but not much progress has beem made on the case. There are certain deities that have theories regarding certain students that attend class 1-A but nothing too solid has been found yet.

    Nicodemus 
Nicodemus, God of Animals with Facial Hair

  • Wary of: Twitch, Pinky & The Brain
  • Nicodemus is the leader of The Rats of NIMH, a group of rats that were originally used for experiments at the organization known only as NIMH. These experiments gave the rats a boost in intelligence and later escaped the place, though they had to rely on human technology in order to survive. Mrs. Brisby, who was traveling in search of something that can help her family, came across him and learned about their origins and a plan to leave the farm and live independent lives and was given an amulet by him. The experiments that Nicodemus and The Rats of NIMH went through slowed down their aging process, though he’s very old compared to them, if the long beard and mustache is any indication.
  • Having been accustomed to life in the Pantheon and having grown from her adventures, Mrs. Brisby started to hear of rumors related to Nicodemus still being alive, but had a hard time believing any of them. The rumors persisted for some time and Brisby ended up going on a perilous quest to see if the rumors were ultimately true or not. She ended up finding herself in a setting similar to where she met Nicodemus back then, but there were a few differences she could notice. As she continued on, she ended up finding Nicodemus and was surprised to see him still alive in the Pantheon. He acknowledged that it’s been a while since they last met each other and could tell how more determined Brisby has been since then. Nicodemus then told Brisby that he’ll continue to watch her and those close to her from afar, something that she understood considering the greater dangers that can happen to them in the Pantheon.
  • Brisby’s time in the Pantheon meant that she found a few extra friends that have a close connection to her in some way. She introduced Nicodemus to Fievel Mousekewitz and Thumbelina, two deities that Brisby was acquainted with and befriended. Nicodemus saw in Fievel a strong will that allowed him to get through trouble and get to his family akin to Brisby’s willpower, though seeing a human girl that was smaller than normal was unusual for the rat. Thumbelina was nervous upon seeing what Nicodemus looked like, but Brisby assured her that he meant no harm and in turn, Nicodemus saw Thumbelina as friendly and was sympathetic to what she had gone through.
  • Miss Bianca and Bernard heard about Nicodemus through a conversation with Brisby, who told them about a wise and powerful rat who helped in her journey. One of Bianca and Bernard’s missions required Nicodemus’ help and Brisby was able to get them to his place. The pair didn’t really expect Nicodemus to look the way he did (and Bernard was unsettled by the setting in general), but the rat did find plenty of worth and resilience in Bianca and Bernard, citing a similar desire to help children out of trouble much like how Brisby did for her own. Nicodemus’ advice to The Rescuers proved useful and they’ve come to hold Nicodemus in high regard since then.
  • Basil and Dawson were given a difficult mystery to solve and one of the clues they had led them to Nicodemus’ place. The place came across as unusual to them and both wondered how they were going to solve this mystery with what they have so far. They then encountered Nicodemus, who was willing to listen to what Basil and Dawson had to say about their predicament. It was through them that Nicodemus learned about Ratigan, a devious rat with a selfish desire for power that was very similar to what Jenner had tried to do before. Noticing what Ratigan’s intentions were (alongside his connection to the crime that the detective mice were going after) and how smart Basil and Dawson are, Nicodemus offered his help to the two and after the pair was able to foil Ratian’s plans once more, Basil and Dawson viewed Nicodemus as a valuable ally, with meetings between them occurring every now and then. Ratigan saw Nicodemus as a major nuisance following this and has come up with a number of plans to get rid of him, prompting Brisby, Basil, and Dawson to step in and thwart those schemes.
  • In one of their attempts to take over the world, Pinky and the Brain found a strange passageway that the latter believed would lead them a step closer towards their goal. They ended up finding Nicodemus, who wanted to know who they were and what they wanted with him. The Brain introduced himself and his partner to Nicodemus and told him what the two wanted. Nicodemus mentioned that Brisby told him about the two and the Brain did act friendly around her. Given Nicodemus’ ties to Brisby, the Brain tried to convince Nicodemus to join him and Pinky to take over the world, but the rat mystic refused the offer, citing the repeated failures the two endured and whether or not any harm will come if an attempt does succeed. The Brain was disappointed that someone as valuable as Nicodemus wasn’t going to get involved with a world-takeover scheme, but he and Pinky aren’t all that deterred and have nothing against him given his backstory.
  • Remy the Rat was a deity that surprised Nicodemus in a handful of ways. Remy has spent much of his life in close proximity with humans, has taken up an interest in cooking, a very human activity, and even became friends with a human to the point of improving said human’s life (even if Remy can’t verbally speak to humans). Nicodemus, being someone who would rather not get involved with humans much, if at all, found it unusual that a rat of Remy’s aptitude would take a strong interest in a human activity instead of fending for himself, but understood that Remy meant well and had no malice in the long run. Remy, understanding how hard things have been for Nicodemus, did try to give one of his meals to him, but the old mystic politely declined the offer.
  • While he very much is on amicable terms with Remy, the same can’t be said regarding Twitch. Twitch’s sneaky personality, as well as his habit and expertise in using poison and weapons has Nicodemus worried about what Twitch could do even if he isn’t really evil. The latter’s title of The Plague Rat concerned Nicodemus further, especially regarding the idea of rats being associated with bringing about diseases towards others. The concept of plagues and a quick conversation with Twitch (nothing hostile occurred from either end) resulted in Nicodemus learning about Peryite, a powerful entity who spreads diseases and can transform into a swarm of rats. Nicodemus would want nothing more than to be far away from Peryite as much as possible regardless of the latter’s supposedly polite demeanor.
  • A close associate of his is The Great Owl, who has a similarly aged appearance and helped Mrs. Brisby get closer to finding the answers she was looking for. In spite of his intimidating appearance, he was very much on the side of good. Nicodemus learned of another foreboding owl in the Pantheon, albeit one that was nowhere near as benevolent as The Great Owl in The Grand Duke of Owls. In addition to having a selfish scheme to enact an everlasting night, The Grand Duke is more than willing to harm children simply because they’re threatening to him. Nicodemus made it clear that he has no affiliation with The Grand Duke at all and if that particular owl goes out of his way to harm Mrs. Brisby, Nicodemus will do what he can to help her get out of trouble.
  • While Nicodemus is someone who doesn’t say much about humans in general, the one kind of human that he dislikes at lot are scientists given his background of being an animal used for experiments. Dr. Cortex and N. Brio are two particular scientists that have earned significant ire from Nicodemus. Them having less-than-benevolent goals is one thing, but what truly sickened Nicodemus was how Cortex and Brio (even if the two aren’t really working with each other) specialized in animal experimentation, with their projects resulting in freakish animals as a means to achieve said goals. He later found out that Crash Bandicoot, one of Cortex’s creations, fought back against the scientist and thwarted multiple plans. Even if Crash is eccentric, Nicodemus finds what the Bandicoot did bold (if rather reckless), though he can’t help but suspect that he and The Rats of NIMH wouldn’t have lasted as long as they did if they tried to fight back like what Crash did.
    • On the subject of humans that have experimented on animals at some point in their lives, one particular human that did such a thing has horrified Nicodemus and that was The Ancestor. The Ancestor has done a lot of questionable things throughout his life, including doing experiments on pigs, though when Nicodemus overheard a conversation regarding The Ancestor at one point, there was a story that led to the rat truly despising him. It involved a prophet that tried to warn others of what The Ancestor is capable of and a meeting between the two (following a number of failed assassination attempts by The Ancestor) ended with said prophet mutilating himself and becoming an insane leader of an apocalyptic cult. Even if The Ancestor claims to have regretted his past actions, Nicodemus doesn’t buy into the regret that The Ancestor has and sees him as a human that’s just as bad, if not worse, than the scientists from NIMH.
  • In addition to Crash, there were a handful of other animals that were experimented on that got Nicodemus’ attention. Nezu, a rodent-like creature with heightened intelligence and has a prominent scar on his face due to the experiments he went through, found the rat’s place while going on an errand for someone and while Nicodemus was surprised with Nezu’s job of being a teacher for superpowered humans (and the mere idea of superhumans was something that worried Nicodemus), he came to accept Nezu for who he is and understanding the difference between good and evil humans (regardless of if they have superpowers to begin with). Nezu then showed Nicodemus a few other animals that the former got along with, Caesar and Rowf & Snitter. Nicodemus was sympathetic to the canine duo’s plight and was very curious about everything that Caesar went through, from understanding that not all humans are bad to trying to find a new home as things became dire.
    • Nicodemus’ conversations with these friendly lab animals resulted in him finding out about a couple of these animals that became cruel and vengeful as a result of their experiences. Claudandus was seen by Nicodemus as a worse version of Dragon, a cat that Nicodemus and the Rats of NIMH have known for a while, but the one that was truly condemned by Nicodemus was Koba. Nicodemus had problems with Jenner being untrustworthy, but Koba was someone that took Jenner’s traitorous sociopathic desire for power and amplified to a dangerous degree. Nicodemus was revolted by the bonobo’s actions and how he used his hatred of humans to justify a war that would bring down society. The rat knew that Koba and Claudandus would pose significant trouble and he, alongside the other friendly lab animals, have done their best to make sure the two don’t get far with their plans.

  • Enemies: Luke Skywalker, Leia, Boba Fett, Samus Aran
  • Deep within the Pantheon, in the Other sub-house of the House of Beasts, lies a Sarlacc (plural: Sarlacci), a carnivorous plant-like creature. Though Sarlacci have been spotted on different planets, including the infamous Great Pit of Carkoon on the desert planet Tatooine and an utterly gigantic specimen on Felucia, this one landed in the Pantheon quite some time ago, and has since grown mature. It can sometimes be seen in the Earth and Metal sub-house in the House of Nature, an appropriate location as it would function similarly to the one on Tatooine. Though it was once thought that a Sarlacc could only survive in a more damp location, the Great Pit of Carkoon proved otherwise.
    • No one is sure how it is able to move from one part of the pantheon to the other, but most are just glad it only moves to those two locations, for whatever reason.
  • Many have taken precautions to ensure that the creature doesn't snatch anyone and devour them. It has tentacles that could grab any potential food.
  • Almost no one is sure what the creature truly looks like, because no one would be stupid enough to get close to it, though some sketches suggest that this may be what its true form is.
  • Though the creature would devour anything within the vicinity, it has the intelligence to preserve its victims and devour them rather slowly. It may be a sign of sadism, a thought which causes some to question the Sarlacc's alignment.
  • The only known report of anyone falling into the pit and escaping to tell the tale is from the bounty hunter Boba Fett, but he has refused to say anything about it.
    • There was one time when Samus Aran fell into the Sarlacc. Unfortunately for the creature, Samus was prepared and set a Power Bomb to cause the creature to spit the Bounty Hunter out.
  • Jabba the Hutt likes to use this Sarlacc to feed his opponents into the pit, just like the one back on Tatooine. Just like old times.

  • Enemies: Lord Brevon, Carmelita Fox, Dragonslayer Ornstein, Acnologia, Deathwing, Arfoire
  • Not many people have actually heard of her, mostly because her exploits are overshadowed by the haunted playhouse known as Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. That was until Sonic heard about her battle against Lord Brevon and freed her planet from his clutches, also seeing how similar she is to him. He quickly offered her a place in the Pantheon. She accepted, and hopes to get her friends Carol Tea, Milla Basset, and Torque into the Pantheon as well. While godhood is increasingly unlikely, being High Priest(es)s or even a Follower will suffice for Lilac.
    • She's also trying to figure out how Sonic can breathe in space so easily, as she herself can't do it.
    • Her prayers have been answered as both Carol and Milla managed to acquire spots in the Pantheon as goddesses, and they had a heartfelt reunion. Now they all wait for Torque.
    • With Torque's arrival, all of Liliac's friends have all been accounted for.
  • Being a former thief, she tends to avoid the House of Justice as much as she can. She particularly doesn't get along with Carmelita Fox, as the latter reminds Lilac too much of Neera Li.
  • Even though she doesn't look remotely like a dragon (western or eastern), which is what she ascended for, she seems to get along rather seemingly with most friendly dragons such as Bahamut and Spyro. It could be due to the fact that they want learn more about dragons who exist in space, though even she doesn't know much about that.
    • However, there are dragons who scoff at her and even out right despise her. One such evil dragon is Ancologia who views her as nothing but a disgraceful dragon and not worth his time. Deathwing, on the other hand, took a more hands-on approach in introducing himself to her, and by that we mean chasing her around the Pantheon and shooting flames of destruction at her. Luckily, with her smaller size and speed, she was able to avoid his attacks while striking his eyes whenever she got the chance. Issei, Rachet, and Clank even gave her assistance after seeing her in trouble, the battle ending with Deathwing getting trapped in a small cave, the the Dark One roaring in frustration as he struggled to break free.
  • Of course, being a dragon means that she is also on Ornstein's hunt list. Lilac is not at all amused.
  • Lilac has found kinship with Twilight Sparkle, as the both have strange and unique friends, and reacting violently when any of them are threatened.
  • Lilac's heart skipped a few beats upon hearing that her homeworld's invader Lord Brevon ascended to the Pantheon. And the worst part, he managed to do this by attacking the Main House. In response to this, she arranged for an alliance with Sonic and his friends to ensure that Brevon is stopped once and for all.
  • Gets along well with Neptune and her sister, due to their similarities and due to the fact that they are both the spiritual successors of Sonic The Hedgehog.
  • The sequel shows a few changes for Lilac. In addition to a couple of new techniques, the fact that she might be able to get a set of Wing Gliders in the future that will enhance her Dragon Boost makes her feel giddy.

  • Pitied by: Judy Hopps & Nick Wilde
  • In a slightly futuristic world, a government decided to set up a program known as We3, which was meant to create animal weapons to be used in wars. Consisting of a dog (Bandit AKA "1"), a cat (Tinker AKA "2"), and a rabbit (Pirate AKA "3"), the project got shut down despite some progress being made. The one who spearheaded that project decided to let the animals go and from there, the trio was left to fend for themselves. Did these animals ask to get turned into weapons of war? Most likely not, but one thing was certain: their ordeal took a toll on them.
  • When their journey came to an end, Pirate was the only one of the group that didn't survive and the others removed their cybernetic upgrades a while after that. The House of Life and Death took care of bringing Pirate back to life, though the House of Technology did something unusual in regards to the armor. They can be removed from the animals and put back on if necessary, though only if someone among the group's friends does that.
  • A few animal lovers such as Fluttershy and Inori Yamabuki heard about the group's ordeal and have offered to take care of them whenever the trio isn't in action to fend for themselves.
  • Some animals are capable of human speech while others aren't. Although these three can't "talk" in a traditional sense, their suits are able to translate their thoughts into what can be considered simple articulation. All of their "thoughts" have differing speech patterns as well depending on the animal. Those who are capable of talking to animals are hoping to provide a clearer translation of the group's thoughts.
  • This trio came as a surprise for Sonic, Tails, & Knuckles as the latter three had been used to freeing animals from robots while battling against Dr. Eggman. Animals that were being used as cyborg weapons and not fully stuffed inside a robot was a different thing. Nevertheless, Sonic, Tails, & Knuckles befriended We3 given what that group had gone through.
    • As for Eggman, he's quite interested in the capabilities of these cyborg animals and is hoping to enhance them to move closer to his goals (and by that, it means stuffing them inside some sort of giant robot that is capable of using that group's individual abilities and then some). Needless to say, We3 and Team Sonic are not going to let that happen.
  • Judy Hopps & Nick Wilde learned about what this trio had gone through and were quite saddened to hear about it, especially since before being turned into cyborg weapons, the trio were just normal animals (in particular, Pirate's final fate hit Judy & Nick the hardest). The two are hoping that these three don't end up worse than before.
  • The trio was not pleased to hear about Cruella de Vil and Ghetsis Harmonia, both of whom are known to treat animals poorly (in Ghetsis' case, the animals are more fantastical than normal ones). Fortunately, for unknown reasons, neither of them really pay much attention to the trio.
  • Even though they had to deal with humans that performed some questionable actions, the group learned that there were a few reasonable ones out there, such as a homeless man they encountered during their journey. This is partially why they don't want anything to do with Napoleon and his agenda to make animals superior to humans.
  • Despite Crash Bandicoot not being a cyborg, he ended up being made to fulfill the goals of an evil scientist. Regardless of his eccentricity, We3 were able to become friends with him since they all had to escape from being used for something bad. The unusual capabilities of this trio gave Neo Cortex another idea about using altered animals for his schemes.
  • Although Bladewolf is a robot and not a cyborg, it didn't stop him from being friends with these three (Bandit is particularly friendly with Bladewolf, due to canine kinship). Not only were they also built for less-than-noble purposes, but he and this trio were also looking for freedom from their creators (or at least trying to survive, in the case of Bandit, Tinker, & Pirate).
    • It was through Bladewolf that Bandit, Tinker, & Pirate learned about the group that Bladewolf was originally created from. We3 became antagonistic towards Desperado Enforcement, especially Sundowner for using war for little justification other than profit. One would have to wonder if an equivalent of We3 is being planned by the Winds of Destruction, though Sundowner appears to be really interested in that idea in addition to his already-in-use child soldiers.
  • Both this group and Kiryu are animal-based weapons that went off on their own thanks to circumstances. Kiryu's inspiration is destructive, so to speak, and Kiryu's potential tendencies have made the group a bit unsure whether they should interact with it or not.
  • Lord Djibril & Muruta Azrael have earned the group's ire thanks to the two having an affinity for war and being heartless humans in general. What bothers the animals most is that Muruta & Djibril were involved in a program that turned normal humans into ruthless killing machines and the three dread thinking of what would happen if these plans become applicable to animals as well (in addition to the cybernetics).
  • Many ruthless cyborgs such as Sektor and Viktor became interested in the trio's capabilities and have tried to get these animals to join them. A lot of the meetings so far have resulted in violent battles. These cyborg animals are only trying to survive, and causing more misery for others to please other ruthless cyborgs is not part of the trio's plans.
    • On the other hand, the animals are much more friendly towards less hostile cyborgs such as Cyrax, Kamen Riders 1, 2, and Black, mostly due to the fact that all of them received cybernetic upgrades and became a deadly force against their will.
  • Their real names are indicative of their outsider status and have no direct relationship whatsoever to the profession of their names in question.
  • They also have a spot in Other Weapon Tropes. If they are in that house, then they are almost guaranteed to be wearing their cybernetic upgrades.

Demigods

    Mole, Rat, Badger and Toad 
Mole, Rat, Mr. Badger and Mr. Toad, Holy Quartet of Animals Named After Their Species (Mole: Moley; Rat: Ratty; Badger: Old Badger)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/witwgang.jpg
Clockwise from top left: Badger, Mole, Rat and Toad
  • Demigods
  • Symbol: (None, because Rat and Toad had a fight as to whether it should be Rat's beloved boat or Toad Hall, so Badger determined they'd do without one.)
  • Theme Song: The Wind in the Willows
  • Alignment: Lawful Good, except Toad who's more like Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Known only by their animal names, behaving exactly like late 19th century middle-class Englishmen despite being animals, Four-Temperament Ensemble, inconsistent levels of anthropomorphism
  • Domains: Animals, Anthropomorphism, Names, Adventure
  • Herald: Otter
  • Allies: The Hundred Acre Wood Gang, Mrs. Brisby, Babar, Lady Amalthea, Black Beauty
  • Enemies: Toon Patrol, The Headless Horseman
  • Admires: Kyogre (Rat)
  • Mole, Rat, Badger and Toad are four friends living in an idyllic forest in Edwardian England. Mole is a sensible homebody who nonetheless has a craving for adventure sometimes, which led him to become friends with Rat, an easygoing yet grounded gentleman with a passion for the river and boating. From there Mole was introduced to the capricious Toad, who has a penchant for taking up a different hobby every other day, and Badger, who generally prefers to be left alone in his home in the dangerous Wild Wood due to his contempt for society, though he'll do anything for his friends (and can keep Toad's fancies in check).
  • After many misadventures that famously included Toad's incarceration for vehicle theft and reckless driving, his subsequent escape, and ridding Toad's manor of the weasels who were unlawfully squatting there in his absence, it seemed as if things would at last settle down in the four animals' lives. One day they heard that a unicorn was sighted wandering in the Wild Wood. Mole and Rat, who've had some run-ins with the supernatural, were curious, but Badger thought it was all hogwash, and Toad too busy with some new hobby to care. Feeling confident after the battle at Toad Hall, Mole and Rat ventured into the Wild Wood to see the truth for themselves. They found the unicorn alright, but also found that the weasels had had similar ideas and captured and tied her up as though she were a common horse, with the intent of selling her off. So Mole and Rat gathered Badger and Toad and together they hatched a plan to free the unicorn from the weasels. They were successful and the unicorn thanked them. She revealed herself to be Amalthea and that she was in that world to verify whether there were beings worthy of godhood. She deemed Mole, Rat, Badger and Toad to be suitable.
  • Knowing how much they love their home, the Main House made it so the temple is pretty much the forest they live in, with the Wild Wood serving as the connecting point between their world and the Pantheon. While the four have a hankering to go adventuring in some far-flung corner of the Pantheon once in a while, it's definitely comforting to know they can always go back to their familiar homes in the end.
  • Rat likes to say that nothing is worth doing as much as messing around in boats; he has a great love for navigating rivers and once seriously considered leaving everything behind and setting out to sea. Naturally, as he's a Water Rat. He's very fond of going boating all day in the House of Water & Moisture, with Mole sometimes accompanying him. He became a great admirer of Kyogre after hearing of its ability to increase submerged territory, though deep down he understands that if such a thing were to pass, it wouldn't be very pleasant for his friends. He's quite sure he could never come to like Kyogre's counterpart Groudon under any circumstance, however.
  • The Pantheon being an extremely varied place, Toad has no shortage of new things to try out and take up as a new hobby. This means Mole, Rat and Badger, more than ever, have their hands full trying to rein in their friend's enthusiasm.
    • The House of Travel is on the look-out in case Toad gets it into his head to steal any of the vehicles to go joyriding. Toad has done a fairly good job of containing himself in that regard. However, one day he saw this picture and he couldn't get out of his mind what a thrill it must be to race the Headless Horseman for one's life. So he sneaked into the House of Travel one night, stole a motorcycle, then went to the Headless Horseman's temple and proceeded to taunt him to come get his head. A wild chase ensued, with Toad having several close calls as he had no familiarity with motorcycles. When Toad got to his home, the Headless Horseman was left frustrated due to it being on a river, which he can't cross. Because of this, he has a deep grudge against Toad. This was all very amusing for Toad, though he inevitably had to pay the price for stealing by getting locked up for a while in the House of Justice, while Mole, Rat and Badger shook their heads at their friend's incorrigibility and for getting them a new problem in the form of the Horseman. Though Rat was oddly proud that the Horseman's weakness is the river.
  • Given their turn-of-the-century upbringing and set of values, they cultivate cordial relationships with just about anyone, especially anthropomorphized animals, in the Pantheon, and never openly antagonize anyone who didn't antagonize them first. They've become particularly close to Black Beauty, who, as a horse brought up in Victorian England, has a rather similar mindset to them, and could be considered a Quintessential British Gentleman, just as a horse. When Toad needs a horse to pull his carriage, he favors requisitioning Black Beauty, and Toad may have many faults but treating horses badly isn't one of them, so Black Beauty obliges him whenever he can.
    • Other animals they're good friends with include the mouse Mrs. Brisby, who the four friends, especially the somewhat timid Mole, all admire because of the courage and determination she displayed in facing many deadly dangers for the sake of her children. Babar is another one they like for bringing civilized society to his corner of the jungle.
  • Once, Winnie-The-Pooh got it into his head to explore the Wild Wood and see if he could find delicious honey somewhere in its depths and got himself lost instead. Badger fortunately rescued Pooh before anything bad could happen. Perceiving Pooh as something of a child, he wasn't too hard on him and even gave him some honey, but strongly hinted that the Wild Wood was no place for... someone like Pooh, and so he shouldn't wander in again. After that, Mole and Rat were put in charge of safely bringing Pooh to his own home; that's how they met the rest of the Hundred Acre Wood Gang. They quite enjoyed their time there as Rabbit did his utmost to make them feel at home after "all that bother with Pooh". Subsequently, the two groups often visit each other and go on small adventures together.
  • There are humans in their world, however interaction between the two societies seems to be restricted only to what is strictly necessary. For that reason, the four friends rarely interact with human deities. They'll happily interact with the Token Human of the Hundred Acre Wood Gang, Christopher Robin, since he's proved himself to be an upright young boy who can keep the follies of his friends in check, but he's the exception rather than the rule.
  • They have never had a great opinion of weasels, even before the squatting incident at Toad Hall. Those weasels would be followers of the Toon Patrol, and they aren't happy with the way the four have treated them. So when Toad went away somewhere for a prolonged time, the Toon Patrol decided they'd invade Toad Hall themselves in order to avenge their brethren. Toad and co. weren't really scared of the Patrol; they'd dealt with larger numbers in the original incident and came out successful, after all. But they did not quite expect just how unhinged the Toon Patrol could be, and Rat got seriously hurt in the ensuing battle. Despite these difficulties, they quickly won back the manor once they enlisted the help of some of their allies. This is unlikely to be the last time the two groups see of each other, though.

    Rowf and Snitter 
Rowf and Snitter, Deified Victims of Animal Testing (Plague Dogs, Hinny, Boogger, Mazer, Marrer, Fyeul, Rowf: 732, Snitter: 815)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/plaguedogs_3003.jpg
Rowf is the big black dog, Snitter is the smaller one.
  • Demigods
  • Symbol: Green plastic collars
  • Theme Song: "Time and Tide"
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Animal experimentation subjects, Escaped from the Lab, woobies, miraculously surviving the ordeal in the book, ambiguously dying in the film
  • Domains: Dogs, Animal Rights, Science
  • Herald: The tod
  • Allies: House of Canines, Charlie Barkin, Pinky and the Brain, Caesar, Fluttershy, Black Beauty, Crash Bandicoot, Nezu, Nicodemus, We3, N
  • Enemies: Dr. Robotnik/Eggman, Cruella De Vil, Prof. Farnsworth, Alfred Drevis, Vanilla Ice, Dr. Borous
  • Complicated Relations: Amaterasu
  • Fears: Houses of Aquatic Life and Water & Moisture, pretty much any area with water (Rowf), House of Science
  • Rowf and Snitter are two dogs who lived at an animal research facility, where they were subjected to grueling and cruel experiments to satisfy humans' scientific curiosity and commercial pursuits. They succeeded in escaping the place and tried to make their living in the landscape of Northern England. It was harsh, but at least they were free, and they had help from a fox only known as the tod. It wasn't to last, however, as (false) news got around that Rowf and Snitter were carrying the bubonic plague and going around murdering humans and sheep, which turned them into targets to be eliminated stat.
  • Rowf was made to drown repeatedly and for progressively longer periods of time to test his endurance. The result is that he has a phobia of water. His time at the facility has also given him a very cynical opinion on humans and made him hostile towards them, even though he thinks that it's the way of the world for dogs to obey humans. Snitter had some kind of intervention done to his brain, leading to him having hallucinations and go on very odd rants. Unlike Rowf, he believes humans are not all bad, helped by the fact that he used to have a kind master. Seeing their plights as sobering examples of what animals go through when treated as disposable guinea pigs, the Pantheon decided to ascend them just as they were about to drown in the sea, trying to run away from the people hunting them.
  • Since they ascended as they were drowning, they were temporarily placed under Fluttershy's care to recover. Fluttershy finds their tale to be absolutely heart-breaking and the experiments they were subject to revolting. She cried when she first heard all about it. Since then she has invited them to hang about her temple and relax as much as they want because she'd take good care of them. Rowf and Snitter are thankful and consider her a canny lass, though Snitter at first thought he was having one of his "moments" at the sight of a yellow and pink flying horse. They also met Black Beauty, another regular visitor, there. The horse shared his own tale of being abused by humans, which led to the animals bonding over their similar sufferings.
  • Rowf's aquaphobia is so extreme, he can't even stand hearing the sounds of water without panicking. He avoids the sub-Houses of Aquatic Life and Water and Ice for this reason. He's also particularly aggressive with deities that have control over water.
  • Unsurprisingly given their experiences, they keep away from the House of Science as much as they can, since it reminds them too much of the research facility they were at and they want nothing to do with "whitecoats" (researchers and other personnel), who they're convinced exist to abuse them.
  • Being former animal test subjects and lab escapees, they've found companionship in other animals with a similar background, such as Crash Bandicoot, Nezu and We3. Much like We3, they had soldiers sent to hunt for them with the intent to kill them for being seen as a threat. Rowf likes how Nezu can be rather sadistic with humans and wishes he could be like him sometimes; Snitter by his turn is glad Nezu at least distinguishes between good and bad humans.
  • A scientist they particularly hate is Robotnik for turning innocent animals into his robotic minions, something they find to be pure Nightmare Fuel with how close to home it hits. They would not hesitate to attack him on sight. Another one they despise is Farnsworth for defending deadly animal experimentation on the grounds that science won't move forward otherwise.
  • Alfred Drevis is someone they identify as a whitecoat (since, you know, he wears one), which is reason enough for them to stay the hell away from him, though it also helps that they find his smell extremely foreboding and have heard of his past abuse and murder of animals. Drevis would most likely like to use them for his hobby, since he thinks no one would care about two strays.
  • She has nothing to do with scientific experimentation, but they still really hate Cruella De Vil for being another example of brutality towards animals by seeing them as nothing more than potential accessories and even going as far as killing a hundred puppies to satisfy her vanity. Cruella herself sees them as too filthy to be worth it, but that won't stop Rowf and Snitter from throwing themselves at her if they see her.
  • The Brain approached them with offers of becoming his minions, appealing to their shared origins as animal test subjects and promising they'd have anything they wanted once he finally conquered the world. After a while Rowf and Snitter could tell that plan was clearly going nowhere, but in the end they still sympathize enough with Pinky and the Brain that they'll help them with some scheme on a regular basis.
  • As puppies, Rowf and Snitter were told a tale about a "star dog" that created the world and nurtured everything in it. Rowf is of the opinion that the star dog did a crappy job and that the world is a bad one for animals. Upon meeting Amaterasu in wolf form, they were convinced that she was the star dog incarnate, and Rowf asked her why she'd leave her creations at the mercy of man. Amaterasu didn't answer, but offered both dogs meat bags to appease them and collect their graces. Rowf appreciated the food but said such meager offerings didn't make up for everything else, so she got nothing from him. Snitter apologized for his friend's rudeness, and Amaterasu just smiled in understanding.
  • Caesar welcomed them as fellow animals trying to escape the yoke of abusive humans, although he also supports Snitter in trying to convince Rowf that humans aren't all bad, especially as he knows his enemy Koba might try appealing to that side of Rowf to convince him to join forces with him and become his attack dog.
  • They're on fine terms with most of the Pantheon's canines. They probably get along best with Iggy and Charlie due to them living rather on the edge and being independent from humans. When they heard of Hachiko's loyalty to his human even past his death, Rowf was completely baffled, while Snitter once more assured him that there are humans worth doing that for and Hachiko must have had a truly splendid master.
  • They definitely don't like Vanilla Ice for brutally killing Iggy either by beating him to death personally or using his Stand, Cream, to erase one half of him. Nor do they like Dr. Borous for his experiments on animals such as the Cyberdog line which even extended to his own loyal pet dog, Gabe. While Ice couldn’t care less about their opinions on him and wouldn’t even hesitate to erase them if they do much as get in his way, Borous does actually seem to regret what he did to Gabe given he was the only high point of his life. He tries to get better by nurturing the young of his existing creations, but being Think Tank he sometimes lapses back to old habits.
  • They had a chance meeting with N one time they were visiting Fluttershy. They were alarmed at the unexpected human and Rowf barked at him a little. N guessed that the dogs were fearful of humans due to mistreatment, which Fluttershy confirmed. N then decided he'd be their first human friend and help them (re)gain trust in humanity. Snitter, really wanting a master who'll treat him as a good boy, yielded to N immediately, while Rowf remained testy at first, but ultimately had to give in to N's kindness and admit he was a good human.
