The Bladed Weapons Sub-House

Upon the decisive splitting of the House of Weapons, this very house was one of those created. Here lie the realms of all Deities whose preferred weapons are known to slice through anything that can be thrown at them, even bladed ones that can be thrown at unsuspecting enemies. Known to be littered with slash marks.


Because so many of the deities here wield some manner of swords, a sub-house designed especially for them was soon created.

Greater Gods

Poseidon, God of Tridents (Neptune, God of the Oceans, Earth-Shaker)
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His trident
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Master of the seas and prefer method of attacks, God of storms, of earthquakes, possesses an enormous, easily triggered temper due to always being second-best
  • Domains: Tridents, Oceans, Horses
  • Allies: Zeus, Percy Jackson, Kyogre, Hercules, Hera, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, King Triton
  • Rival: Raigor Stonehoof
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Athena
  • Enemies: Kratos, Medusa, both Hades, Odysseus, Ghatanothoa
  • Opposes: Groudon
  • In the House of Water and Moisture, the wave moved when Poseidon first stepped into the Pantheon after his ascension. It was the suggestion by his brother Zeus who wanted another Olympian at his side. With Poseidon's trident that could cause storms, earthquakes, and tidal waves, it convinced the Count enough to ascend Poseidon.
  • A few days after his ascension, Poseidon underwent a medical examination per a request from Percy, as he was concerned that his father may still be infected by the evils of Pandora's Box, specifically Wrath. The results have since come back clean, much to Poseidon and Percy's relief.
  • Still hasn't forgiven Kratos for sinking Atlantis, and plans to see him answer for his transgressions, especially for that uncalled butchering of that princess he kept. That was a rather dear princess to him.
  • Though Zeus was partly responsible for his ascension, he himself is very resentful toward him due to his status as second-best to Zeus. He managed to hold on to that resentment, almost...
    • There was one time when Poseidon sided with his imprisoned father and the Titans for Zeus' throne. His plan was thwarted by the mortal Arkantos and since then, Zeus has kept a close eye on Poseidon so that there will be no sign of rebellion among the Olympians.
    • At the very least on this, however, Poseidon managed to counter that Zeus was once inflicted by the evil Fear from Pandora's Box, turning him into an exaggeration/mockery of his usual self. Zeus counters back that he was also infected by the evil Anger since both of them went through divine cleansing together, but Poseidon wondered if he really changed that much.
    • On the other hand, he doesn't have the same problem with either one of the Hades in the Pantheon, as he sees them as twisted mockeries of his older brother.
  • Do not mention the "Poolseidon" around Poseidon, an incident that Poseidon could never live down.
  • He despises Odysseus for blinding his son Polyphemus and made him suffer in his voyage home until the gods convinced him to stop. Since Odysseus' ascension and much of the gods are not intervening, he is likely to unleash his wrath against him again.
  • As the god of the ocean, he holds a domain within the House of Water and Moisture, even if he isn't a presiding member of the House. He's known for keeping a cage of sea monsters in his ocean home and known to send them on anyone that enraged him, especially the Kraken.
    • He is a bit intrigued with King Triton who bears a lot of resemblance to him, especially since he has a son who bears the same name. Though whether he would question him of their familiarity, he is certainly pleased to see him running his undersea kingdom.
  • He and Athena do not get along, especially since the two competed on who will name the great city in Greece which was given the name Athens. Regardless, the two would put aside their petty fighting for a common goal.
  • Medusa is certainly unpleased of the god of the ocean who raped her in Athena's temple and getting the blame by the virgin goddess.
  • He once mistaken the Bride for Medusa as they look alike. Medusa and he once "dated" in which it is confirmed by Percy.
  • Among his role of the god of oceans, he is also the god of horses and one of his offsprings is Pegasus, the winged horse. Pegasus himself is rather conflicted with Poseidon's "side" of the story and method of his birth, and most equine deities seem to not care about heeding his call, much to his frustration.
  • He is also capable of creating earthquakes, hence his other name, Earth-Shaker. Earthshaker himself was rather flabbergasted that the god of the seas can also manipulate the earth and create earthquakes, even annoyed that he "copied" his title.
  • In a conflict between Groudon and Kyogre, Poseidon would take the side of Kyogre as Groudon's power to evaporate the ocean would pose a danger to his domain.

  • Opposed by: Princess Cadence, Marcus Cole/Statesman
  • The incarnation/son of Lugh the Long-Handed, the Hound of Culann started out as Setanta where he gained the name "Cú Chulainn" after killing a guard dog and substituting it. At the age of seven, he was prophesized to live gloriously at the cost of dying young. As he get older, Cú Chulainn trained under the warrior Scathach in order to make Emer's father let him marry her and Scathach was the one who taught him how to master the Gae Bolg, a deadly spear capable of turning his enemies' insides outwards. Since then, he became Ulster's mightiest hero as he decimate entire armies led by Queen Medb with his might and training and more so with his riastrad or warp-spasms which culminated into his fight with Ferdiad, his comrade during his training under Scathach. Cú Chulainn's final fate varies in some versions, either he succumbs to his injuries from fighting Ferdiad or he died after Medb & Lugaid (in some versions, the Morrigan) planned to kill him by making him break his Geas to weaken him. In the latter, after being severely injured Cú Chulainn straps himself to a rock so that his enemies are fooled that he's still alive, until a raven lands on his corpse that signals to his enemies his absolute deathnote .
  • The Hound of Culann ascended to the Trope Pantheons during its early days, mostly due to his infamous participation in the Fifth Holy Grail War and ascended under the title of Divine Lord of Spears as the Gae Bolg is his infamous weapon; if it means having more people to fight for fun, Cú Chulainn accepted it for that. To accompany him, the people close to him Laeg, Ferdiad and Emer have been appointed as Heralds along with his separate Servant incarnations; it's even heartwarming to see the Hound hugging his closest contacts since the last time he met them, he either witnessed them die (Laeg and Ferdiad) or they found out he did (Emer).
  • The first group of people he decided to reunite with is Shirou Emiya and the girls that loved him, specifically Saber and Rin Tohsaka. Lancer liked Shirou a lot since he's such a good guy, enough for him to be open about his past to Shirou when asked and while Shirou likewise is able to befriend a great hero like Lancer, he's very put off by how he can be chummy with those he was supposed to be enemies with. On that note, Saber is often threatened by his presence even if he's just there to eat Shirou's cooking and it took her a while to get used to him without fighting and that's because they last time they fought, they were both very hostile; Lancer himself thinks she's getting too worked up on it. As for Rin, Lancer resumed his teasing towards her and her displeasure is what amuses him a lot; some think this is his way of showing her his affections but Lancer denied those claims since he's not really romantically interested in her.
    • The moment Lancer and Archer saw each other again, they began to fight like before; it took Saber and Rin to stop them from causing too much damage and both parties know this won't be over anytime soon. Lancer and Archer's rivalry is so great it violated the idea that most Heroic Spirits cannot keep their memories of previous Holy Grail Wars and made some perverted deities think it might be something more; luckily for everyone, they are Vitriolic Best Buds on a good day though that doesn't stop them from being competitive. He and Caster also got off on the wrong foot since the war, but nowadays they're very civil with each other if a little snarky towards each other. For the Hassan of the Cursed Arm, Lancer was still sour that he killed him and hopes for a rematch while Cursed Arm insisted he needed to be intelligent that time and assassinating him per orders dealt two birds with one stone. As for Berserker AKA Hercules, whenever he's not a Servant the Hound finds him to be good company and sparring partner with similar life experiences to relate with but when he is, it's somewhat the same except he has to dread getting beaten up and also becoming Boome-Lancer since their previous comic escapades.
    • It's pretty obvious that Lancer is not happy to see his Master Kirei Kotomine, considering that he had to do his dirty work for him and the priest also forced him to hurt Rin at times, something he doesn't like. Kotomine hopes to have him under control again though that's easier said than done considering there are more people he's more loyal to and he is not willing to give them up anytime soon. Gilgamesh is also not pleased that Lancer's back, seeing him as just another mongrel to dominate over while Lancer is aiming to get him to fight fair and square for once while Avenger also got his ire since he made circumstances that forced him spoiler:to fight Bazett his supposed Master; Avenger himself couldn't care less but he does see how Bazett likes him so much for once.
    • Cú Chulainn is very ecstatic that the Master of Chaldea has finally arrived and is ready to serve him again, finding him to be a way better Master than Kotomine was; he would even ask him to join on boar hunts as well. A perk of serving under Fujimaru is that he is now able to use his survival skills to the max, making him near-invincible such as Protection from Arrows; when asked how can he avoid attacks which clearly aren't just arrows, Cú jokingly claims that to him, everything is an arrow he can dodge. Also, joining his Heralds are his separate Servant incarnations, including his Alter version created by Queen Medb who was able to barely tank Karna's Vasavi Shakti note . Cú can also switch into a Caster, but he loves using Gae Bolg a lot so he had his separate Caster self do that job, much to said self's chagrin.
    • The Hound of Culann is also glad that his old teacher Scáthach is in the Pantheon. The Witch of Dun Scáith noted her student needed a bit of a refresher, citing "performance issues" so she arranged a fight with Flynn and sealed him back into his younger self, Setanta. After a brutal fight, Scáthach declared herself satisfied and released Cú Chulainn to his true form and power; while the Lord of the Spear did gain some valuable experience, he's begged her not to repeat the lesson without some advance warning. Speaking of going through harsh training, Achilles also relates to Cú on that front as well as other common ground like having at least one male lover (Ferdiad and Patroclus) and loving a good fight; they love to spar every now and again if they are available and often times, their teachers butt in to keep them in ship-shape.
    • He has also reunited with Diarmuid Ua Duibhne, Vlad III (mostly his EXTRA incarnation), Karna and Fionn mac Cumhaill and together, they all form a group called "YARI-O" or as most other people call it, "The Backspear Boys" which they also accept. They are mostly seen doing farming work, but will accept singing in concerts though so far no one has booked them yet. Besides, they normally spar with each other and serve Fujimaru anyways so there's no need to get worked up on those endeavours.
    • Of course, he isn't happy to see Queen Medb of Connacht yet again as their enmity stems from the fact that she aims to steal Ulster's prized bull many times; she herself also hate his guts yet at times she lusts after him (which is why she created Cú Alter in the first place), something she questions quite often. But their bitter rivalry must take a backseat as they prioritize taking down the Beasts of Humanity as commanded by their Master, which he considers a good way to take his mind off of that.
  • Aside from Medb, Cú Chulainn is also not pleased at seeing the Morrigan yet again since she played a part in his death in some versions of his life and seeing her at the Battleground of the Gods. Some even speculate that the Morrigan is composited with Medb since the Morrigan has affections for Cú which explains why Medb is lusting after him but so far, no one can confirm this rumour yet. The Morrigan herself is also angry at Cú since she thinks he rejected her when she wants him in one telling which may play a part in his death; their meetings nowadays are very hostile.
  • The Hound of Culann had also appeared in the universe where total order and total chaos clashed and is able to be summoned both as a demon and as a Persona by Kazuya, the Demi-Fiend, Flynn, Raidou Kuzunoha and all of the Wild Card Persona Users; he'll obey them the same way he'll obey Fujimaru. The Demi-Fiend in particular managed to get him as one of his allies in a very rough fight to test the abilities of Serph who groaned at having to fight him yet again in the Pantheons and in return, Naoki suggested him to use an Axereaver spear to battle Barbatos Goetia which is something that Cú is considering since Barbatos is a very dangerous opponent, having killed many heroes in his world before though he would rather kepp hanging on to Gae Bolg instead. Also ever since, Cú Chulainn being involved with Bonus Bosses seems to be a thing, as Yu Narukami can say that the Velvet Room attendant named Margaret has also summoned him. He also doesn't like YHVH and Lucifer like everybody else, as he feels their tyranny and social darwinism respectively are philosophies he knows most people won't get behind.
  • Cú Chulainn appears to have different standards of heroism, as he feels heroes are defined by their legendary deeds, not virtue. Added to that fact are him having no problems killing innocents or guarding something while others are dying should his superior commands him to and disregarding those who are not someone he knows aside, often to their doom. This trait of his is heavily criticized by Marcus Cole AKA Statesman who sees him as rather unheroic for a demigod hero and demands him to shape it to modern times (or at least what Statesman expects a hero to be); Cú for his part ignores him and finding him rather ancy to be worked up over his values.
    • Of course, Cú Chulainn is not that heartless as he does respects the hard work of everyday people, he will even help them out whenever he's free and he won't hold anything against them, because this kind of virtue is hard to see in the Ulster of his time. It's why respects Misaki Ayuzawa, Hinagiku Katsura and Sonico for working hard to make their ends meet, so much so that he wouldn't hit on them if they meet to Misaki's relief.
  • Speaking of hitting on women, the Ulster warrior is ridiculously handsome that they flock to him instantly because of it and not even after getting together with Emer stopped that because she knows it's not love he's experiencing with other women and his heart is for her only. As such, he's a frequenter of the sub-Houses of Lustful Acts and Behavior where Kyu Sugardust enjoys his company, though she's a little baffled at Cú and Emer's kind of marriage and outlook on extramarital sex since she's used to respecting couples being together. Princess Cadence on the other hand is also baffled at Cú but also angry at him because to her, it's unfathomable for the wife to be okay with her husband sleeping around with other women even after Emer telling her he will always be faithful to her.
  • Cú Chulainn is a warrior who loved to fight and its thrills, but not to the point of bloodshed because he knows fair fights are supposed to prevent that. Still, notable Blood Knights like Kenpachi Zaraki, Eugene Gallardo and Undyne found him to be a worthwhile opponent. In Kenpachi's own words, "At least he lasts better than a certain clown Arrancar". Other fighters Cú enjoys sparring with are King and Wamuu, with King reminding him of Bazett Fraga McRemitz who is also a masculine-dressing woman that admired him and was supposed to be his Master and Wamuu also fights honorably to a fault, something Cú can totally get behind even if both of them can get dirty in their tactics.
  • Cú also has a soft spot for kids as evidenced by the fact that the Ulster Youth Corps. died while he was recovering and he avenged them by warp-spasming to slaughter their killers and regretting killing his son Connla when he didn't tell his dad his name out of tradition of not telling your opponent your name. This is why he hates the Child Abuse Supporters for hurting children without a second thought, and while they usually scoff at him they do become cautious since the Gae Bolg can either stop your heart or turn your internal organs inside out, in which neither are pleasant fates.
  • He's also got some ferocity/anger issues, as Zeus noted when he witnessed him back at the Battleground of the Gods as well as accounts of both his riastrad rampages and one time when he was young, he killed someone who was sent to wake him up because he was abruptly awoken; this might explain why he is usually very friendly and open especially as a Lancer, probably because it helps him cool down significantly. Two residents of the sub-house of Anger, Namor the Sub-Mariner and Natsu Dragneel relate to Cú in letting their anger overtake their judgement and while he's a lot more chummy with Natsu with relating over being nice to their enemies (enough for them to turn over a new leaf in Natsu's case), Namor is too prideful to ever hang out with Cú which he considers fine but he knows Namor can't really go anywhere with that kind of behaviour.
  • The Lancer Servant has a Luck stat with the rank of E, symbolising his fated early death. This abysmal luck ended up embodied in either painful deaths or constant beatings of humour, with the latter evidenced by his mishaps elsewhere.
    Person A: Lancer died again!
    Person B: You are not human!/You bastards!
    • This gained the attention of Kenny McCormick and Blacker Baron (stop starin'), the former constantly dying as a source of humour and the latter also constantly dying but at the hands of Mathilda while introducing Bloodbath Challenges, which allowed contestants to amass a greater amount of points through murderous minigames to demonstrate their lethality and had spent all of his lives by the time Jack Cayman met him in a boss battle. Kenny winced at his misfortune, finding his deaths comedic and dramatic, rather painful to experience and Cú in turn also feels bad for Kenny's own while for Blacker Baron (stop starin'), he found common ground in getting around with ladies and joy in fighting others with the Hound; they both have enjoyed their drinkings and sparrings together like bros, as Mathilda and Laeg can attest.
  • "You asked for a cursed, crimson spear?"

Lea, God of Deadly Rings (The Flurry of Dancing Flames, Axel, Number VIII)
Axel, his Nobody 

    Strider Hiryu 
Strider Hiryu, God of Audible Sharpness (Strider, The High-tech Mercenary)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His cypher, Falchion.
  • Theme Music: Raid (Climber, Not One for Manners in serious action)
  • Alignment: True Neutral, but is commonly set as Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Highly Visible Ninja, Plasma Cypher, *SWHING!!*, One-Man Army, Consummate Professional, The Stoic, Scarf of Asskicking, Super Soldier, Retired Badass, Super Speed
  • Domains: Ninjas, Weapons, Sound
  • Followers: Lion-O, Taka
  • Allies: Ryu Hayabusa, Raiden, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Takeshi Hongo and Hayato Ichimonji, Miyabi, Greninja, Maximilian Christiansen, Luke Skywalker, The Marked Ninja, Beatrix Kiddo, Link
  • Enemies: Lord Deimos, Galactus, Onslaught, Albert Wesker, Doctor Doom, The Kurgan, Palpatine
  • Rivals: Wolverine, Vergil, Ghost Rider
  • Feared by: Crimson Viper
  • Admired by: Batsu Ichimonji
  • Hiryu is a Strider, a highly-trained ninja-like Super Soldier. He is one of the few ninjas who can run straight into a group of trained soldiers with firearms and survive without a scratch. Mainly because of his Falchion, a plasma "cypher" that can cut through anything like butter. All while making a lot of sound. SWHING!
    • To his surprise, he has gained a massive following. Aside from being a badass ninja, his famous sounds have inspired many across multiple worlds to to the same. Though Strider is quick to point out to his followers not to overdo it, citing many cases where weapons sing even with the smallest of movements.
  • Was considered to be the new God of Ninjas after he managed to defeat the current owner of the title. Ultimately, the idea fell through, but Hiryu held no hard feelings towards it or Ryu. In fact, it was Ryu that helped find a title for his former high priest, respecting him as a Worthy Opponent.
    • Some also say that Hiryu would have also ascended for Scarf of Asskicking, but the dual Riders beat him for that. Though again, he doesn't seem to really care for it.
  • He really rarely talks. But when he does, they say that he sort of sounds like Donatello or a Greninja/Gekkouga.
  • There was one time when he was send to defeat Miyabi for reasons he didn't know at the time. Miyabi herself took Hiryu as a challenge, wanting to test his Falchion against her Seven-Pronged Sword. While Hiryu defeated Miyabi in the end, he quickly found out that it was a trick by GUAE to get rid of her. As such, he refused to kill her, and the two have mutual respect of each other.
  • Is really close allies with Raiden not only because both are ninjas with really sharp blades but for another aspect; Hiryu hates innocent people being used for experiments and easily discarded masses, especially children. If he finds you doing any of those things, then hope that he merely slices you in half.
  • Has been involved in multiple world mergings, though he was bit late on one of them. Still was a great occasion as he was one of the most dearly missed omissions in the initial game.
    • No one was more excited for his return than Maximillian, citing Strider as one of his favorite characters as well as one of the Pantheon's greatest advocates for his ascension. He's currently trying to get his team of Strider, Doctor Doom and Wesker together, with poor results. The three gods despise each other and would rather not work together, although Doom does admit he and Strider were a formidable team, especially in the previous game.
    • Has a rather rocky relationship with Wolverine despite the fact that the latter has a famous audible sound of his own. It's most likely due to the fact that Wolverine has an unfavorable relationship with ninjas in general.
    • Dante entered his temple one day, offering a box of pizza as a gift. That's because Strider's seen as the only cause of the sounds of Rebellion, Dante's sword in Devil May Cry. It doesn't even have a sheath. The high-tech mercenary quietly accepted the gift, becoming close allies afterwards. The same cannot be said with Vergil, though the two respect each other for similar styles. The battles the two have usually end in stalemates.
    • When Crimson Viper learned of his ascension, she quickly retreated to her temple and made many new safety precautions against ninjas. It's safe to say that she' frighten that the myth has finally attained godhood. Strider himself dismisses her, claiming she uses her technology as a clutch instead as a tool to fight.
    • Ghost Rider was amused when Strider had the gall to not only to challenge him, but calling him the prey. However, many gods assumed that Strider merely wants to lift some of the burden of judging the guilty, feeling pity over a many who was tricked into his current role.
  • Many gods hope to improve the sharpness of their blades and have turned to Strider for help. Strider ultimately decided to help Luke Skywalker's lightsabers as well as taking paid missions to thwart the Empire, drawing the ire of Palpatine.
  • Respects the Marked Ninja's emphasize in stealth instead of combat. The two can agree that a shared mission simply won't work, as any use of Strider's blade would alert their position. If there is any sort of cooperation between the two, it would be on separate missions.
  • Respects the The Black Mamba's reputation as a revered assassin. The two would have certainly been rivals if she was still in the business but now pay each other tribute from time to time. Beatrix does it for how her blade sounds whenever she unsheathes her samurai sword.
  • Has denounced the Kurgan, both as a brute without any sense of code and for horrible use of audible blades.
  • Gave his blessings to Link for the famous shhhwing whenever he performs the Spin Attack, going back to his first game. Don't expect the two to converse though; Link is the God of Silent Protagonists after all, which suits well for Strider.
  • Batsu, being his long-time fan, is surprised to see him in the Pantheon.
  • "Unless you're a target of mine, you will never see me. If you see me, then it's already too late."


Lesser Gods

    Elektra Natchios 
Elektra Natchios, Goddess of Sais (Epsilon, Miss Ketterman, Mrs. Salvatore, Nicole, Weapon, Giselle, Lost One, Perfect Death, Tainted Death, Black Sky)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her pair of Sais
  • Theme: Elektra
  • Alignment: True Neutral, with shades of Good
  • Portfolio: Sai Users, Anti Heroines, Being a Greek Ninja, Waif-Fu, Being Impaled and Surviving From It, Professional Killers, Pressure Point Paralysis, Constantly Changing Sides, Femme Fatales
  • Domains: Weapons, Combat, Trickery, Darkness
  • Allies: Matt Murdock/Daredevil (currently Just Friends), Frank Castle/Punisher (another ex of hers), Steve Rogers/Captain America, Kain Highwind, Deadpool, Raphael of the TMNT, Wolverine, Chun Li, Kasumi, Mai Shiranui, Kevin Levin, Gabrielle (Xena), Jean Grey, Ryu Hayabusa, Jenna Rink, Maya Fallegeros
  • Rivals: Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Ra's Al Ghul, Shadow Yamoto
  • Enemies: Bullseye, Mileena, The Shredder
  • As a mortal, she was trained in China and by the Hand as a deadly assassin, seeking revenge on Daredevil. After nearly succeeding in taking him down, she met her end at the hand of Bullseye. She was eventually revived and found herself in the Pantheon.
    • Elektra had one mission at first... to get a payback on her killer, Bullseye. She tracked him down and started a long and epic battle with the enforcer. Daredevil got himself involved and together drove him off. Daredevil managed to convince her to hold back thoughts of revenge and merely enjoy the Pantheon as it is.
  • It was surprising that it took so long, but she did eventually meet up with Black Widow. After coming to blows because someone leaked Natasha's files on superheroes, Elektra eventually gave her a shot at fixing the mess. The two haven't said much to each other ever since. A shame, as many point out how similar these morally ambiguous women are.
  • Wolverine isn't exactly a fan of her. She admits she played a part in that; she has attacked him in a few occasions. She has also worked for the Hand, which Logan has a strained past with. Neither wants to put up the work to amend their relationship, so they avoid each other whenever they can.
  • It's a bit complicated with Ryu Hayabusa. She has let go of her ninja past, but maintains good relationships with the God of Ninjutsu. The Dragon Ninja warrior claims that the Hand is a sect that separated from his domain long ago. He has long since tried to rein back control with no luck.
  • As the Goddess of Sais, she has worked and trained many other fighters using that style. She had a hand in helping Gabrielle ascend after training her in the use of sais along with Xena.
    • Has a friendly rivalry with Raphael. The turtle was interested in the title and has fought her over it. All of their battles have ended with a standstill. It's likely that Raph likes her style too much to kick her out of the Pantheon. She has also become a valuable ally against the Shredder.
    • Elektra would love to find a way to kick Mileena out of the Pantheon. Loathes Mileena for being just as ugly on the inside as she is on the outside. She sees Mileena as what she could have been if she fully embraced the dark side. She takes solace that Mileena lost her mortal body in the events of Mortal Kombat X, but not that she was somehow brought back as DLC in the sequel.
  • Fought Catwoman in the DC vs. Marvel crossover… and won in short order. Not that Catwoman minds. Elektra is one of the few superheroes that wouldn't bat an eye over her trade. Then again, both admit agreeing all the time would make things boring, hence why they stick around with heroes.
  • Has... mixed feeling of her portrayl in the Daredevil series. While she was impressed with her avatar's fighting skills, she wasn't sure what to think of the character's personality (and don't get her started on The Defenders (2017)...). Still, she paid homage to the show by adapting the look in the comics.
    • Currently, and for the shock of not Daredevil, but of Deadpool (former teammate in Red Hulk's Thunderbolts), she's now dating The Punisher. It turns out they had a lot more in common than they thought. While the team didn't work out in the end, the two promised to see each other more often. After all, they both enjoy sticking projectiles at Deadpool to shut him up.
  • In spite of being an Anti-Heroine, she gained the respect of Captain America through hard work. He hopes that his influence can inspire her to become a better person. It remains to be seen if that will work.
  • Even though she has died only once as far as she recalls, her death remains a defining moment of her history. Jean holds sympathy for her as she went through the same ordeal.
  • Elektra would rather not hear this song. It just brings out bad memories. Also don't talk about the playground scene. Some things are just better off buried.

  • Maka can often be found in the House of Knowledge reading up on different universes.
  • Maka has on occasion sung the Excalibur song, or at least hummed it, which irritates Soul to no end.
  • She also speaks with Crona quite a bit and has struck up a friendship with Pit, who is a little jealous at her ability to fly with Soul's help. She sometimes tries to help him fly, with him usually crashing.
  • Soul is usually hanging around Black Star and Death the Kid, but has recently begun talking to Artoria as both have served as their respective ally's "weapon" in battle.
  • As Soul uses the piano in his soul as a weapon, some wondered if he should have a place in the House of Music as the new God of Pianos, but he respectfully declined the position, claiming his playing wasn't good enough to qualify.
  • Soul has been the subject of several seduction attempts on the part of the Aensland sisters. He ends up getting massive nosebleeds every time. Fortunately, Maka always stops them, but unfortunately, he ends up on the receiving end of a Maka Chop every time.
  • They can sometimes be seen together, even holding hands. They deny any implications that they're boyfriend and girlfriend. Everyone Can See It though.
    • Any further pressing has resulted in one or the other quoting their creator's words on how their relationship isn't much different compared to a normal meister and weapon, though whether anyone believes that is another topic.
  • Rumors has it that Maka has once been seen with Edward Elric, who flexed his automail muscles.
  • Due to Airi's soul-draining ways, Maka and Soul have crossed blades with her a few times. It should be noted, however, that there is a level of grudging respect between them, as the two of them realize that should Airi stop draining souls altogether, she'll fade away, making her actions a little more understandable than that of the average Kishin. Airi herself admires their teamwork, and admits Maka's ability to wield a scythe is outstanding.
    • They also have a rivalry with Ruby Rose, one of their former followers, though it's of a far more friendly type. They currently have a bit of a competition on who can use a scythe better, and they genuinely enjoyed each other's company. Though Soul's been slightly worried ever since Maka took interest in how Ruby's scythe is also a gun...
  • Maka has recently had to correct a long-standing theory on her mother's name being Kami. It turns out it was a translation error (basically, Spirit was referring to the woman as his ex-wife). This cause a bit of a stir as the supposedly only bit of definitive information on her was now false.
    • Maka has become uncomfortable with discussing her mother in general recently. She's even admitted that she is unsure on how her mother actually is as a person and how she's actually doing. This has become a larger issue since she hasn't appeared during any of the crises in their universe. When Maka tried to rationalize her mother's lack of presence due to her avoiding Spirit, she was reminded that her father is willing to work with Stein (despite the latter's experiments on the former for the five years of their partnership that led to their fallout and led to Spirit meeting his future wife) and even managed to repair their friendship. Then when Shibusen allied with the Witches to stop Asura and even ended their bitter centuries-long feud, Maka was forced to admit that her mother really had no excuse for this. Since then, she's become tight-lipped and melancholic whenever she thinks about the implications.
    • Soul eventually intervened and told the questioners that it wasn't cool they kept bringing it up since Maka is uncomfortable about the implications. However, he has promised to deliver a definitive answer should their superior ever reveal it. As of right now, people have ceased questioning Maka about her mother though many note that since then, she's become more amicable and openly nicer with her father, Spirit (especially since he would've died along with several other comrades in the final battle, if not for the timely intervention of Mabaa, the Witch Queen).

  • Lesser Goddess
  • Rank: Greater Ninja of the Hayabusa Clan

  • Portfolio: Action Girl, The Apprentice To Ryu Hayabusa, Badass Shrine Maiden/Kunoichi, Boobs of Steel, Lady of War, Last of The Shrine Maidens, Rapunzel Hair/Tomboyish Ponytail, Friend to All Children, Took a Level in Badass
  • Domains: Ninjas, Shrine Maidens, Naginatas, Apprentices
  • High Priestess: Seong Mi-Na
  • Signature Weapons: The Heavenly Dragon Naginata and the Heavensong Bow
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Saito no Musashibo Benkei, Billy Kane, Hotaru
  • Worthy Opponents: Takeda Takahashi, Blake Belladonna, Oberyn Martell, Red Sonja, Hawkeye, Green Arrow, Kung Jin, Shigure Kosaka
  • Enemies: Kitana, Juri Han, Sadira
  • Odd Friendship: with Hisako
  • Ascended to the Pantheon at the recommendation of Ryu Hayabusa when the Main House was looking for a protector to guard the House of Treasures. That and she was trained by Hayabusa himself.
  • Momiji had aspirations to become a kunoichi, while her elder sister, Kureha, served as the Shrine Maiden of the Hayabusa Clan. However, she was slain by Doku, which left Momiji to take over. This, however, does not stop Momiji from becoming a powerful warrior in her own right.
  • The first of her two signature weapons is the Tenryuu Naginata, or the Heavenly Dragon Naginata. Like the Dragon Sword, the naginata's blade was carved from the tailbone of a dragon. The Naginata is a 'shizuka' type naginata weapon used by the Dragon Shrine Maidens, and as Momiji can tell you, the weapon is pretty damn light, flexible, and powerful, allowing attacks that are impossible for a normal naginata to perform.
    • Her skills with the Naginata has attracted the attention of both Oberyn Martell and Billy Kane. But it's her rivalry with Takeda Takahashi and Blake Belladonna that really gets her blood pumping...and depending on where the fight takes place, either Momiji or Blake's temple is riddled with bullet holes, various slashes and scorch marks.
  • The second weapon Momiji wields is the Heavensong Bow, and is traditionally carried by the Dragon Shrine Maidens. Carved from the wood of a sacred tree, the Heavensong Bow is used in what is know as the 'Heavensong Rite,' in which the shrine maidens-in-training pluck the bowstring like a music instrument to drive away evil spirits, and the power of the arrows launched by is is for lack of a better term, insane.
    • Momiji also spends time at the Ranged And Explosive Weapons given her love for archery. A friendly rivalry has formed between her and Kung Jin, while she has formed a friendly rivalry with both Hawkeye and Green Arrow.
  • Somehow, she, like Kasumi and Hayabusa, finds herself in Feudal Japan, where she met other famous heroes of the past such as Joan of Arc and Achilles. She did manage to return back home.
  • Whenever she speaks English, she tends to get weird looks from certain deities, as she sounds similar to some of the other deities, such as Toph Beifong and Sailor Mercury.
    • She gets even more weirder looks from the Japanese-speaking deities, especially from the deified House of Son, as she sounds like Pan...and Videl.
  • Maya Fallenegros has scouted Momiji for membership with the Night Hand. Momiji refused, citing her responsibilities as the Shrine Maiden to the Hayabusa Clan. Momiji did say that if Maya needed help, then she would aid her in any way she can.
  • Most guys think that if you disarm Momiji, then she is defenseless. Guess again. Those who try to fight her hand-to-hand discover a bit too late that she was not only trained by the aforementioned Ninjitsu God himself, but that her signature ninpo, the Art of the Crimson Lotus, hurts like crap.
  • Saito no Musashibo Benkei didn't think too highly of Momiji at first. That changed when he found out that she was Hayabusa's former pupil in the ninja arts. Now Benkei is curious about the deified shrine maiden. He is now waiting, biding his time, until the perfect opportunity comes to challenge het.
  • Frank West is now working on a PERFECT EROTICA photospread, only this time, he's doing various kunoichi. Momiji, Ayane and Kasumi top that list.
  • Momiji has a soft spot for children. Threatening and/or harming any children is her Berserk Button.
  • How is Momiji friends with Hisako, you may ask? Both had experienced tragedies in their lives, with Hisako's being lethal, and both are masters of the Naginata. For Hisako, Momiji's presence is soothing for her tortured soul.

  • Conflicting Opinions: Cinderella

  • Enemies: Cinder Fall, Roman Torchwick, Adam Taurus, The Meta, Felix
  • Complicated Relationships: Achilles
  • Pyrrha Nikos was once a famous Huntress hailing from the region of Mistral in the World of Remnant, where she was known as one of the best students that attended Beacon. Her ascension happened no longer after her leader, Jaune Arc, ascended as well, and she was given the title of the Goddess of Javelins.
    • However, there was a period of time that Pyrrha went missing from her temple and the rest of her friends weren't around to answer what happened to her. As it turns out, she was killed during the Grimm invasion in the Vytal Tournament while fighting a woman named Cinder Fall. Luckily, she recovered in the House of Life and Vitality but she was too scarred emotionally to talk about what happened to her.
  • The first few days after her ascension, many noticed that she might have a crush on his partner Jaune Arc but Pyrrha has denied it so far, Even though everyone knows she is lying. She however knows that one day she might get the chance to be someone special for him.
  • Her semblance is Polarity, which gives her the ability to control any metal around her. That ability caught the attention of Magneto himself and the mutant was very impressed with Pyrrha's powers. Nevertheless they both considered worthy opponents.
    • Another one who also challenger her was the Cyborg Monsoon, who was very interesting to learn about Pyrrha more thoroughly. Their battle was very even but monsoon decided to drop the fight after a while and declared himself her rival ever since. Given her fate after the Grimm invasion in vale, Monsoon has gained even more interest on the Huntress given her Philosopy on destiny and to learn more of her Heroic Selflessness. She also understand how scarred she is, given that he too died in his home verse
  • Since so many people has some trouble spelling her name, many started calling her P-money. She actually doesn't mind being called like that.
    • Other has also started calling her Captain Canada, given how she uses her shield and because she is a really Nice person.
  • She also made friends with other redheaded heroines that are also very strong warriors, like Erza Scarlet or Signum. She often joins them for training in the house of Combat
    • Another redhead she befriended was Stella Vermillion for being a world-wide famous fighter just like her and even they both have sparred occasionally. Stella also helped her slowly open up to her Teammate Jaune and encouraged her to confess her feelings just like she did with Ikki. This gave Pyrrha enough will to kiss Jaune one time before never seeing him again. Stella has tried to console the broken down Pyrrha after hearing such story
  • Often been compared to Kanade Amou, for being both Redheaded heroines who happen to be The Aces of their respective teams. Their relationship also goes deeper, given that both turned to ashes after their respective deaths. While Pyrrha knew of Kanade's story and even was friends with her, she became much closer friends after having experienced a similar situation
  • As a lancer, Pyrrha was jokingly told that she would suffer like the others. They were eventually right, as she almost becoming the Fall maiden and having experienced death did leave her in a broken down state
    • Trollkaiger once dedicated her the song "You Give Love a Bad Name" by Bon Jovi, which she didn't found funny at all. Apparently, It has to do with her demise. (And Cinder's to blame)
  • Unlike her teammates who get along quite well with their Genderbent inspirations and counterparts, Pyrrha is unease around Achilles. While she acknowledges him as a supremely skilled warrior, his general attitude is off putting. Plus, she hasn't forgiven him for what he did to Jaune when contacted him by mistake. However, when Achilles heard that Pyrrha also suffered a similar fate like he did, she started to warm up to her.
  • There was a time where she went into a period of mourning, along with the rest of people of her world. When asked, she would only say, "A very important person to all of us has passed on." Thankfully, she was glad to see said person ascended.
  • Given her celebrity status back in remnant, she became a mascot of cereal brand called "Pumpkin's Pete". She says that it was a fun experience but stated that the cereal isn't very good for your health. Still, the endorsement led to the House of Food being perpetually stocked with Pumpkin Pete's.
    • That's why she befriended fellow mascot John Cena and he has been teaching her a few of his moves so she can use them in combat.
  • There was one time where she was confronted by a Fishwoman creature by the name of Undyne after hearing that Pyrrha was an extraordinary fighter and challenged her to a battle. The match ended up being a draw and Pyrrha was very impressed with Undyne's resolve and eagerness to keep fighting. They became Friendly Rivals since then and occasionally spars with her whenever she has time.
    • They dropped their rivalry and got to know each other better after a while. What surprised both women was that they had a lot similarities like being two Redheaded Warriors who were pretty famous among their peers and they both are very Heroic people. Undyne even gave her a hug after hearing how Pyrrha battled against Cinder Fall in spite of losing in the end. Undyne on her part says that she would have done the same thing if she was on Pyrrha's place (Which given their nature of her world's timelines, she is not lying at all if the fabled "Undyne the Undying is to go by)
    • She also often joins her with Papyrus' training. She's been enjoying training the skeleton because it reminds it of the time she trained Jaune to become a better fighter, (Which she sadly can't do anymore). She also has taken a liking to Papyrus after he referred to her as a cuter and nicer Undyne, which made her blush.
  • Has a very strained relationship with Felix after he threatened to shoot Jaune and because she didn't like how Felix sounds exactly as Jaune. Felix doesn't like Pyrrha either, being reminded too much of agent Carolina and also threatened to shoot her and Ruby in the face.
    • With the exception of Felix and The Meta - who really doesn't like anyone - the other Red vs. Blue deities have a good relationship with her, shared background and whatnot. Sister says Pyrrha's hot, Tex relates to her suffering, Epsilon says she's one of the best warriors he's met since Carolina... Pyrrha only doesn't understand why upon finding Grif, Tucker and Caboose in the House of Music's practice hall, they instantly ran away.
    • After hearing much about Carolina, the Freelancer's ascension made Pyrrha finally meet her. She was downright spooked at how Carolina is a version of herself in a Powered Armor, but Pyrrha bonded with her easily and both have sparred on occasion.
  • Out of everyone ascended who comes from her universe, there was only one who could relate to Pyrrha's situation and that was surprisingly, Roman Torchwick. They are both still enemies but he has also expressed surprise that he wasn't the only one to get killed in the invasion of Beacon.
  • Of all her friends, only Ruby approached to her and they both had a private talk about their situation. She says that Jaune was really devastated after he found out about her death and Ruby stated that she joined the rest of JNPR to search answers on Mistral, where Pyrrha happens to be from. She only wished Ruby good luck and asked her to look after Jaune in her absence.
  • She's conflicted on her views towards Cinderella. On one hand, she's a version of Cinder Fall, the woman who killed her, and is a Princess of Heart, a maiden who holds special powers to unlock great evil when in the wrong hands, similar to how Cinder is the current Fall Maiden. On the other hand, Cinderella is a Nice Girl who herself almost met the same fate as Pyrrha because her stepfamily's hatred of her attracted creatures similar to the Grimm. When Cinderella learned about Cinder, she has set to work with trying to keep Pyrrha's legacy alive and atone for Cinder's crimes.
  • "Do you believe in Destiny?"

    Kaede Nagase 
Kaede Nagase, Patron Deity of Oversized Shurikens (Student No. 20, Mahora's Koga Chuunin, Baka Blue)
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Her Oversized Shuriken. Alternatively, her artifact, Tengu-no-Kakuremino.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Absurdly Large Shurikens, Cool Big Sis, Flash Step, Harem Nanny, Ninja, Statuesque Stunner, Supernatural Martial Arts, Younger Than They Look
  • Domains: Stealth, Weapons, Combat
  • High Priest: Sarutobi Sasuke
  • Allies: Negi (her teacher), Asuna (classmate, sparring partner on occasion), Nodoka, Yue, Evangeline (views her as an on-off acquaintance, but nonetheless occasional ally), the Go Ninja Legion and the Kunoichi Go'nin-shuu (Pro tempore/Floating status), Suzune (secondary teacher), Gondar the Bounty Hunter
  • Friendly Rival: Mana Tatsumiya
  • The Gods in House of Prophecy had anticipated a ninja to take up the title, but most of them were expecting that the same would be appended either to Sasuke or Naruto (the latter because of his Rasenshuriken). None of them expected Kaede to lay claim to the title, until she brought out her shuriken from the Tengu-no-Kakuremino and demonstrated its use in combat, both as an offensive and as a defensive weapon.
    • Furthermore, other Gods worried that her entry into the House of Weapons would all the more expand the control of a certain goth-loli vampire deity. She nonetheless assured them that such concern would not be possible as she has already pledged her allegiance to Negi (and the fact that Negi views her as a Cool Big Sis, who occasionally keeps his female students (and her erstwhile classmates) at bay).
  • She has been invited to be a part of both the Ninja Shi-Tennou and Kunoichi Go'nin-shuu, but declined due to her association with her teacher and the Ala Alba group, serving as one of its best combatants (especially in light of "The Great Upheaval"). Nonetheless, she promised to lend them a hand whenever possible.
  • She was apparently left speechless when Simon narrated to her of the time when Team Dai-Gurren fought the Anti-Spirals in a pocket universe. She scratched her head upon mention of "galaxy shurikens", then breathed a sigh of relief at the end of the story.
  • She's apparently wary of Wart from the House of Beasts. The reason for such concern has yet to see light.
    • When Wart got replaced by Greninja though, she had a rather satisfied look on her face since she finally found a good "Practice Target" for her ninja skills.
  • She quietly welcomed Mana upon her ascension by challenging her to an old-school sparring session reminiscent of their Mahora Budokai showdown years ago. After that, they went to the House of Theatre and Spectacle for the usual R & R, but like Mana she struggled to get a student discount.


How well does it match the trope?
