Greater Gods

    Baal (Diablo
Baal, God of Annoying Boss Battles (Tor'Baalos, The Lord of Destruction, Bala, Spirit of Creation, Excidium)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/baal.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His insignia
  • Theme Song: Baal's theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: An Ice Person, Ax-Crazy, The Berserker, Big Bad, Evil Laugh, Spider People
  • Domains: Destruction, Demons, Possession, Death, Carnage.
  • Allies: Diablo (His brother), Mephisto (His other brother), Most evil aligned demons, Gul'dan, Ten Commandments.
  • Rivals: Azmodan, The other Baal, Beerus
  • Enemies:
  • Opposed by: Arachnophobes, Anyone tied with Magic or Made of Magic
  • Fascinated by: The House of Ruin & Destruction
  • Baal is one of the three prime evils of the world of Sanctuary and one of the most physically powerful given his domain being destruction. Baal wants nothing more than to kill and destroy everything that opposes him and that's why he wanted to corrupt the worldstone and enslave humanity, but his plans were foiled by Tyrael and some adventurers.
  • Diablo was glad his brother was able to join him in the conquest of the pantheon, but Baal was a little suspicious of his younger brother, because he knows that back in Sanctuary he used his essence and of the other great evils to become the Prime Evil. However, they still share the same goals and so they allied once more....for a while at least.
  • One of the main reason behind Baal's ascension was that according to the adventures that faced him back in Sanctuary, most said he was very frustrating to fight, with a myriad of abilities that would confuse and irritate anyone in the pantheon. They also said he has a very annoying laugh.
    • Also worth mentioning that his Mana Burn has been known to cause trouble towards the House of Magic and deities who are actually Made of Magic are very afraid of him.
  • He first ascended into the pantheon after hearing about it from his brother Diablo and quickly stormed it looking to making it his domain. However, we was stopped eventually by the GUAG with the help from Tyrael, the Nephalem and Xul. He has special disdain for the last one since he was one of the adventurers that defeated him back in sanctuary.
  • His general arachnid appearance has terrified a huge chunk of the pantheon, especially those who are afraid of spiders. On the other hand, other Spider People aren't fond of him for his evil and destructive ways.
  • While everyone thought at first that they would get along, Beelzebub actually doesn't like Baal. One because of his affinity to ice magic and it being a weakness to him because of being a fly and second because he is pretty insulted that he shares the same name as his original form.
  • His brother Diablo told him that there was another Baal in the pantheon and that he was also a powerful demon lord. He went to personally meet him and was not dissapointed in said Baal, but they haven't become friends yet. The latter Baal has also said in the past that the other Baal was possibly much stronger than him, so he is being cautious.
  • He found Gul'dan to be a powerful spellcaster and servant, so he quickly sought to make him join his ranks. Although Gul'dan agreed, he is not entirely loyal to Baal nor any other demon from his realm. At least not until the Burning Legion gets ahold of the pantheon.
  • Baal is fascinated that a House of Destruction exists, where he is at his most powerful. The pantheon has taken measures so that he doesn't enter the House cause that would spell doom for many residents, but thankfully he has been kept at bay.
    • One of the many reason he hasn't been able to set foot there was that Beerus wouldn't let him, not because of the potential death that would have happened if Baal entered, but because he wants to be the top deity of Destruction in the pantheon and he is not going to let a nobody steal that title from him.

    Merasmus the Magician, Monoculus, and the Horseless Headless Horsemann 
EMERGIS EXMORTIS!!!

Merasmus the Magician, Monoculus, and the Horseless Headless Horsemann, The Triumvirate Gods of Damage Sponge Bosses (MERASMUS!, Wizard-Man, MONOCULUS!, HHH, Silas Mann)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/merasmus_monoculus_hhh.png
From left to right: Merasmus the Magician, Monoculus and the HHH.
  • Greater God for Merasmus, Intermediate Gods for Monoculus and HHH.
  • Symbols: His Skull Hat (Merasmus), Himself (Monoculus), The Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker or better yet, his Pumpkin Head (HHH).
  • Theme Song: Merasmus' Freak Fortress 2 Theme and Haunted Fortress 2(HHH).
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil —> Chaotic Neutral for Merasmus. The other two are somewhat different.
  • Portfolios (All three): Really High Damage Resistance And Absurdly High Health, Enemy Mine, That One Boss, Eldritch Abominations.
  • Domains: Magic, Summons, High-Health, Bosses, High Resistance.
  • Followers: The Cyberdemon, Terramorphous the Invincible, Izual
  • Allies: The Four Horsemen, Kel'thuzad, Leoric, Ostarion, Zero (Kirby), Vanellope Von Schweetz
  • Complicated Relationship with: Discord
  • Odd Relationship with: Celty Sturlson, Ms. Fortune, Lala (for HHH), The Slender Man
  • Commonality Connection with: Murky
  • Worthy Opponent: Sora
  • Rivals: Most axe users in the Pantheon, an example would be Muradin Bronzebeard.
  • Respects: Jack Skellington
  • Enemies:
  • Opposed by: Uther the Lightbringer, Dhuum and the majority of the House of Gaming.
  • During the peaceful days of the Pantheon (and at the same time, Halloween), a certain Carnival of Carnage was suddenly open inside Pantheon grounds. At the same time, the SCP Foundation decided to search and report any anomalies inside. After a few minutes, a large shout reminiscing an old magician was heard, followed by a haunting laugh and crit rockets were followed. It was decided for them to let Team RED enter inside the Circus.
  • Tavish's nightmare has finally come true. Merasmus, the person responsible for removing his eye has arrived. This made the Demoman very conscious ever since he ascended. Soldier on the other hand is going full commando to gather his hand-ridden revenge.
  • The Horseless Headless Horsemann a.k.a HHH is known to guard Mann Manor inside Merasmus' temple. Since its the only way to go further inside, many are forced to fight it. Its axe is extremely dangerous and the skeleton is very agile too, its health makes fighting it a hard match, unless one lures it to a chokehold.
    • Its also confirmed to be the "rumored" adopted son of Zephaniah Mann. Which is the reason why it goes to Gray's temple more often.
    • The Four Horsemen of the Supernatural universe has gotten heavy interest with HHH and as a result, became the personal bodyguard for the four and enemies with Sam and Dean Winchester naturally.
    • Once, it entered the House of Weapons upon hearing an Axe Competition. While it didn't manage to arrive to the finals, it did find a worthy rival of Muradin. The Horsemann did complain one thing: Muradin is too small to be hit.
  • Monoculus on the other hand is basically Demo's left eye, when he opened it while he was young. Merasmus, who had no idea how to remove the eye, decided to create a being out of it. The result: a floating monstrous being capable of shooting rockets and teleportation.
    • One of the worst aspects about defeating him is that he's smart and targets the strongest person in the party. And since the rockets can pierce basically through anything, (well except time shields), its a real pain to fight him. Even worse, since its health is double of the HHH.
    • It has found company under Zero of the Kirby-verse, on account of both of them being grotesque, flying eyeballs.
    • And yes, it can win in a staring contest.
  • Merasmus on the other hand is a magician born from old Sumer (in what he calls, born from the ancient ones). He's currently summoning the evil Sumerian Circus God, Bonzo and is 6,000 years old.. And despite being almost an Eldritch Abomination, he is roommates with Soldier of all people. No wonder he got into Soldier's bad side.
    • If HHH is just high in terms of health and damage, and if Monoculus is double the health and damage, Merasmus is basically five times higher in terms of stats. He's painfully frustrating to deal with, spamming bombs, constant teloportation and his spells HURT like entering a rocket testing chamber. Even worse, when he dies, he doesn't literally die at all.
      • Case in point, Kiritsugu attempted to kill Merasmus just after his ascension. While he got most of Merasmus' HP down, everytime he dies, he'd always comes back, prompting a heavy mirror match. It came to the point where Kiritsugu decided to say "Fuck it" and allowed Merasmus to finish him off. This little "encounter" is the reason why he's still pissed about Merasmus' ascension.
      • Merasmus on the other hand did say that Kiritsugu had very impressive powers and admitted that the match was very entertaining for him.
    • While he may be dangerous, it should be noted that he is very cocky. Even to the point where he constantly forgets your location. Of course most of the Mercs have felt this happen, most of the time.
      • It bites him back during the past, when Soldier and Demo took on him by themselves. This incident was probably why they got Intermediate Status.
  • Unlike most temples, Merasmus had a different scheme. His temple is composed of all the Team Fortress 2 Halloween Maps, with a twist, its all merged into one huge map. Ironically though, many comments mentioned that the temple is identically the size of the Vault.
    • One of the features of the map includes a Carnival of Carnage, a cursed clocktower, a Haunted Castle and lastly, a portal to the Netherworld. Good news: There is a large array of exploration. Bad news: Since the boss maps are connected, this means all three of the bosses can appear anywhere, unless one leaves the temple.
  • It is also rumored that all three of them would be on their strongest when Halloween arrives. This is actually true, except that their powers are equally skilled with Sora since he also has the effect. He considers him as a Worthy Opponent.
    "You may be human, but you have permanent powers of a god? What a spectacle!"
  • Became steadfast friends with Ostarion for reasons unknown, though this may be due to, well being a powerful wraith that can resummon all his personal skeleton army. Leoric has also gotten into interest with Merasmus after looking through his army, finally providing him a Skeleton Champion.
    • Unfortunately, he has been communicating with Kel'thuzad ever since he ascended. It has been revealed that he's willing to send Scourge Forces to accomplish Merasmus' long term plans of summoning ancient gods from Sumeria. This has gotten the attention of most Blizzard deities, particularly Uther.
    • After said event, he was greeted by Gul'dan and was invited to the GUAE Malum Magia. Merasmus hasn't accepted the offer, but he expressed that he's not interested during the same day. Though, he could change his mind.
  • Considers Kokonoe a disgrace to Magic for someone who is trying to mix technology and science. In fact, he cringes everytime he sees her do experiments regarding magic. He's always forced to shout her this:
    "Magic! It is not... an exact science."
  • Currently, he still has no idea what the hell Discord is supposed to be. He thinks he's a dragon but at the same time, thinks he's a colorful Eldritch Abomination. Discord on the other hand has a mixed relationship on him.
  • Much like Murky, he and him has the same situation regarding death. After all, they somehow can't permanently die. Dhuum, however, has a lot of plans in order to take Merasmus' immortality out.
  • Despite being evil, he still respects Jack Skellington to the highest uphold. After all, he is the avatar of Halloween.
  • Celty and Ms. Fortune (no, not THAT one) are very uncomfortable when Merasmus is around, on the other hand, they feel comfortable with the HHH due to having similarities.
    • Lala however is someone who Merasmus cringes at, even Monoculus somehow closes his eyes whenever it sees her. Its unknown why but it could be since Lala is very different for a proclaimed "Horseman" and the fact she has a lover, which is something the 3 would never have anyways.
  • Has an intense hate towards the Defenders of the Ancients for one reason: They keep calling him the Shitty Wizard.
    • He also has an addiction to ducks for no apparent reason. Some say that it was all to the Scream Fortress 2014 Event.
  • Ironically, many people have been recently calling Merasmus a girl. He says its getting out of hand, since even women are calling him the same.
  • Has been heavily opposed by the majority of the House of Gaming due to causing an unnecessary amount of bugs on the House. Want proof? Just ask the Mercs while they were pushing the cart.
    • In fact, the entire House blames Merasmus entirely for making anything into a glitchy entity. The fact that he was responsible for TF2's glitchiness already proves the point. Even worse, the first time he entered the House, it immediately dissappeared.
      • There has been some theory making from the Council of Cuckooland that if he enters any gaming realm, the realm itself will inherit Merasmus' glitchy aura. No one has tried it as they know the Pantheon will be seriously blamed for such stupidity.
    • And for that same reason, he became friends with Vanellope Von Schweetz for feeling the same pain, except that unlike Vanellope, who can glitch herself, Merasmus' glitches affect the entire game.
  • May or may not be the one responsible for summoning the Slender Man.
  • "Cower, fools! Mesasmus is here!"

    Ruined Dragon 
Ruined Dragon, Harbinger of Unforeshadowed and Unexpected Boss Fights (Lord of Lightning)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dragon_3.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Its crown
  • Theme Music: Lord of Lightning Battle
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil when brainwashed
  • Portfolio: Non-Standard Character Design, Really Giant Dragon, Lightning Powers, Purple Is Powerful, Our Dragons Are Different
  • Domains: Dragons, Lightning
  • Rival: Mario
  • Enemies: Miraak, Gwyn, Ornstein & Smough
  • Disliked by: Acnologia
  • Source of Interest for: Alduin
  • Cause of Concern for: Paathurnax
  • Mario has traveled to many unusual locations and fought plenty of enemies along the way while rescuing Princess Peach. The Ruined Dragon is just another enemy that the plumber has fought, but it somehow manages to stand-out quite a bit compared to Mario's other adversaries. Mario fought against it while trying to stop an attempt from Bowser to marry Peach. How Bowser managed to find a giant realistic-looking dragon that can use lightning in Mario's mostly cartoony world is rather hard to answer, but Mario fighting against it is something the plumber himself didn't really expect.
  • As the Pantheon was going about its normal routine, thunder strikes came from above, startling a number of deities. Some of those deities also reported seeing something that looked like a dragon in the sky, prompting various dragon hunters to go after it. They eventually reached what appeared to be ruins and were greeted by a giant purple dragon, who was responsible for the sudden thunder strikes. The dragon hunters fought a difficult battle against it, but they were ultimately able to subdue it. When the time came to ask if anyone fought it before, none of the dragon hunters said they encountered it beforehand. Mario then entered the arena and pointed out that he fought that dragon before, surprising the others. Seeing as how this particular dragon could pose a threat to the Pantheon overall, it's clear that a number of people have taken up turns in stopping it should the dragon go on a rampage.
  • It's temple is essentially the Ruined Kingdom, a place that got its name from the fact that he more than likely destroyed the entire place. Among other possible things the kingdom has other than being a desolate location (besides having two different arenas; one a bit more slippery than the other), there's an altar that has been described as either capable of restraining the dragon's lightning or even as a potential means of communicating with it. What other things that kingdom has or used to have (and what more there is to the Ruined Dragon by extension) has been a source of some discussion by a few curious deities.
  • The crown on it's head is actually some sort of mind-control device set by Bowser once the latter somehow found the dragon. Given that apparently brainwashing a very destructive dragon is possible, some evil deities have tried to mind-control the Ruined Dragon and have it under their command. It goes without saying that those attempts haven't been as successful in contrast to whatever it was that Bowser did to get the crown on the Ruined Dragon and have it attack Mario.
  • Acnologia has some issues with the Ruined Dragon as while the latter is practially responsible for bringing an entire kingdom to ruins, the former is not pleased at all with how the Ruined Dragon got brainwashed by someone and taken down just as easily by someone else who relied on a decidedly unconvential way to subdue the Ruined Dragon. Acnologia, being the battle-hungry dragon that he is, challenged the Ruined Dragon to a fight that caused substantial damage to the Pantheon. It took some time and effort for others to break up the battle and by then, the Ruined Dragon was already getting tired. Acnologia didn't see the Lord of Lightning as a worthy adversary despite the potential since then.
  • There have been a couple of dragons who are genuinely interested in the Ruined Dragon, with Alduin as a prominent example. Seeing as how Alduin is responsible for causing a lot of destruction with his great power and how the Ruined Dragon laid waste to an entire kingdom, Alduin has considered trying to get the Lord of Lightning on his side so as to cause destruction on a much grander scale.
  • Paathurnax, hearing about the destruction the Lord of Lightning caused along with how Alduin is trying to use it to create even more chaos, saw the Ruined Dragon as a source of potential concern and decided to reach it in case it was on a rampage. When Paathurnax reached the Ruined Dragon, he saw a tired purple dragon and instead tried talking to it in the hopes of preventing potential catastrophe. Given how tired the Lord of Lightning was, it wasn't really able to hear anything Paathurnax said. All Paathurnax could do for now is be with the Dovahkiin whenever the Ruined Dragon strikes and stop major damage from occuring quickly.
  • Gwyn never had the best opinion of dragons to begin with, but him finding out that there was a dragon capable of using lightning made the Lord of Cinder quite upset, as the dragons he was used to back in his homeworld are weak to that specific element. This is on top of the Ruined Dragon being really likely to be an enemy to all if left unchecked, regardless of if it's brainwashed or not.
  • Just to make it clear, this is a photorealistic dragon that was fought by a cartoony plumber who has occasionally fought against different cartoony dragons before this one. It's just really easy to assume on first glance that the Ruined Dragon would look like something that the Dovahkiin would encounter. While The Last Dragonborn was actually kind of surprised after hearing about who fought that specific dragon, he's willing to step in and fight if the Ruined Dragon causes trouble and Mario isn't available to stop it.
  • Very few, if any, have actually seen the dragon without it being brainwashed. Given that there's a high chance that the Ruined Dragon made the Ruined Kingdom what it is without being under mind control, it'd be easy to think that this is not a friendly dragon. Oddly enough, some have seen the dragon just resting by itself in an exhausted state, complaining to itself about being tired.

Intermediate Gods

    Friede and Ariandel 
Sister Friede and Father Ariandel, Dual Deities of Bait And Switch Bosses (Sister Friede: Founder of the Sable Church, Elfriede, Blackflame Friede, Father Ariandel: the Painter of the World of Ariandel, For both: Ornstein and Smough 2.0)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_202.png
Left back: Father Ariandel, Right front: Sister Friede
  • Intermediate Gods, potential Greater Goddess as Blackflame Friede
  • Symbol: The Painted World of Ariandel
  • Leitmotif: Sister Friede and Father Ariandel
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral for both with strong Neutral Evil tendencies for Friede
  • Portfolios:
  • Domains: Ice, Fire, Paintings, Preservation
  • Herald: Sir Vilhelm and the Corvian Knights
  • Followers: Piston, Letz Shake, Shadow Rise and Shadow Teddie
  • Allies: None. Due to their protectiveness towards the painting, they have less allies as one would expect.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: False King Allant, Pontiff Sulyvahn
  • Rivals: Margaret Moonlight, Maka Albarn, Ruby Rose, Xul, Kirika Akatsuki, Shiki
  • Commonality Connection with: Lady Maria of the Astral Clocktower, Kabal, Sigurd, Celestia Ludenberg, Mulan, Asterix, Tali'Zorah
  • Enemies: Lord Gwyn (also counts as Evil Counterpart), The Chosen Undead/Bearer of the Curse, Meliodas, Any fire-related deity around the Pantheon, especially Ragnaros the Firelord, Darquesse
  • Unknown connection with: Manus, Father of the Abyss, The House of Birds (for Ariandel)
  • Annoyed with: Judai Andou
  • Just as the House of Craft where gathering new pictures, one "picture" was found in the entrance: a rotting brownish piece of what it looks like a remnant of an old painting. But as deities closely examined the paper, many got sucked into an unknown world. Said world was a winter landscape, filled with snow-covered buildings. After which, they are greeted by a woman in white, telling them to return back to their world. With the warning, they returned, but not before they sent chosen deities to investigate the place further. Solaire and the Chosen Undead were picked and looked further about this mysterious world.
    • As they went further around the place, they met the woman, but this time she was more valiant about her words. The two continued and realized something about the place they have been looking at: its a Painted World, a world reflected by the image it represents. Then, they also met a person with black feathers, who was revealed to be the father of the painting. The two were suddenly attacked by the same woman they crossed with. They escaped, but after the encounter, the Chosen Undead knew something about the two, in which his follower, the Ashen One, knew of. Sister Friede and Father Ariandel has ascended and returned in the ranks of the Pantheon.
  • The history between the both of them and the Painted World of Ariandel are kinda mixed. A long time, Ariandel (the huge crow looking one) painted a world in order to create a world for the corvians and forlorn souls. As time passed, an unkindled one, Elfriede, entered the painting and met with the father of the painting. Let's just say that Elfriede's entrance to the painting changed both her and Ariandel's mindset (and by extension, the painting itself) for the worse.
  • Aside from the meeting with the Chosen Undead, several gods decided to fight and challenge her to the death. Almost all the people who tried to challenge them were shocked that as they reached the arena, they thought Ariandel was going to be fought, but Friede shows up. As the fight continued, things got worse when Ariandel stepped in, revived her, and fought alongside her for a second rematch. And as if things got to its worst level, Friede revives, but this time possessing dark pyromancy. This gave them the position of Bait-and-Switch Boss with ease.
  • Being another scythe user, she has gained a number of rivalries using the same weapons. Ruby Rose especially has been eager to challenge her but has been warned by her allies about her skill and her last form, Blackflame Friede, being too much compared to her skill level. Shiki and Xul are in waiting for a challenge, Margaret being interested in recruiting her and Kirika studying her powers.
    • Maka on the other hand has been observing her powers. After a few observations, her studies are clear about the dark pyromancy Friede possesses: its powered with the impenetrable fires of humanity. Since Maka's domain is related with souls, she fears on the effects of dark pyromancy while fighting against her.
  • Meliodas rather feels uneasy towards Friede, seeing her possession of blackflame to be similar with his dark flame. Though, the first time they met, Friede immediately took him down and shooed him away from the Painted World. He's also not happy upon hearing her atrocities inside the Painting.
    • After hearing of other dark-fire users, she has stood her ground against Darquesse for being a potential danger to the painting. The latter has seen her powers, and is willing to bring her alongisde her band of Straw Nihilists. The invitation only made the situation much worse.
    • Is rather annoyed at Judai's "dark-fire" powers, seeing him as weak and not worthy of anything great since his fires are close from useless.
  • While Ariandel may come from a race of bird-people, the House of Birds cannot take his invite sincerely. Most of the residing deities think he's too fat to be considered as a bird, even fatter than the Grand Duke of Owls. This made him albeit mixed towards them.
  • Being somewhat similar in terms of fighting syles and motifs, she and Lady Maria do get along swimmingly well. This is because they hold similar goals and are protective of the places they guard. Maria however is wary around her due to being "evil" in nature.
  • Just as they ascended, Gwyn was entirely furious upon their ascension. He has bad feelings about Ariandel for painting their world with the dark soul of man. As for Friede, its a different story. For instance, she despises flame but is actually an unkindled one. Second, she embraces rot and the abyss and third, her methods are almost the same as his actions (her objective to preserve the Painted World and his want of prelonging the Age of Fire). Problem is, her way of preserving the painting is by forcing Ariandel to whip himself constantly, compare it to the former who decided to put himself among the flame. The last one placed her on his next list of slaying.
  • As you may already know, both of them really do hate the presence of fire in their painting. Fire is the very last thing they want the painting to gain, merely because it gives rebirth to the painting, by burning the last civilization living on it. This includes her, Ariandel and her efforts. Of course, since the painting will inevitably die at some point, she chose to let it rot rather than give it a new name. Unfortunately for her, the myriad amount of deities related with fire are vastly huge. This made her wariness towards most deities increase ten-fold.
    • This is why she's on somewhat good terms with Kano and Sigurd. Both deities had a bad experience with fire in their universes, with Kano's case being the reason why his face was burned and Sigurd because he had a terrible time with BBQ parties. They also understand her cause (albeit), since fire would doom the Painted World, but they believe that something else could be done aside from utilizing rot as a delaying solution.
    • Has vehemently opposed Ragnaros among all the fire-related deities since he is the personification of fire itself. Doesn't help that he's eyeing on her powers, especially her dark pyromancy powers.
    Ragnaros: TELL ME INSECT, WHAT FLAME IS THIS YOU HAVE?
    • To counter the many flame-oriented gods around the Pantheon, she decided to ally herself with Boletaria's ruler King Allant to gather herself some Soul Arts for herself. Apparently, his interest for her stems to her hatred for Gwyn himself, which is also his objective. And thats not the case as she also allied herself with Pontiff Sulyvahn to create an alliance against the Old King. Though unlike the former, she has a problem with Sulyvahn, due to having a Lord of Cinder on his possession. However, what they don't know is that Friede is only using their powers for her keep to defend the Painted World. She also considers them highly dangerous, meaning if they'll threaten the painting, all alliances are off.
  • Oddly enough, she has a connection with the Father of the Abyss himself, Manus. Though there may be more to it such as possessing Dark Pyromancy, which is exclusive to only those who reside among the Abyss, unless she got hold of Karla that is.
  • Due to her protectiveness of the Painted World, Tali'Zorah, Mulan and Asterix deecided to befriend her, until Asterix saw what she did to the Painted World prior to her meeting. Sure they share similar protectiveness to their worlds, but the three agree that Friede is not the protective guard they would expect.
  • Do not confuse her with another Elfriede by the name of Zenia Valov.
  • Friede: “Fret no father, we have no need of thy flail. Tis only the flame, quivering at misguided Ash. Please avert thine eyes. I will snuff out these ashes for good.”

    Gilgamesh (Final Fantasy
Gilgamesh, God of Braggart Bosses (The Frenzied Swordsman, The Ancient Man of Mystery, Gilgamesh Ashur, Greg, Alleyway Jack, The Four-Armed Man, the Blademaster)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gilgamesh_xiii2.png
  • Theme Song: Clash on the Big Bridge
  • Intermediate God
  • Alignment: Varies, usually Chaotic though.
  • Symbol: The Excalibur...or is that the Excalipoor?
  • Portfolio: HAMMINESS, Swords (and many other types of weapons), Collecting Weapons, Samurai, Having Many Arms, Villainous Shapeshifting, Rivalries with Worthy Opponents, Traveling Between Worlds Aimlessly
  • Domains: Weapons, Collecting, Rivalry, Hamminess
  • Allies: Link, Yuna, Ruby Rose
  • Enemies: Exdeath, the other Gilgamesh, Odin
  • Rivals: Bartz Klauser, Erza Scarlet, Snow Villiers, Owain
  • Ascended after Dissidia 012 finally made him playable after years of cameos in other games in his universe. His followers insist his name be spelled in all capital letters, unless one is referring to a "Gilgamesh" other than this one.
  • A wall in his chambers hosts his collection of rare and powerful weapons from across the universe. Gilgamesh claims to own the weapons of every other member of the Pantheon, despite the fact that they mostly retain such weapons for their personal use. Investigation into this revealed Gilgamesh's copies of the weapons to be counterfeit, but he hasn't been informed of this yet as he's too busy gazing lovingly at them.
  • His four main weapons when he battles are the Zantetsuken, a copy of the Masamune, the Excalibur, and the Excalipoor. He also tends to just grab random weapons off his wall. He's lost more than a few fights due to his tendency to do this and leap into battle without paying attention to what weapon he's actually using. When asked why he keeps the useless Excalipoor around and doesn't just throw it away, Gilgamesh explains he fears he'll get it mixed up with the Excalibur and will accidentally dispose of the wrong one. Those who have followed his exploits note that he's almost always looking for the Excalibur in whatever world he visits even if he found it in a previous world, and suspect this mix-up to be the reason why.
    • Funnily enough, he has probably fought more battles with a naginata or other polearms than with an actual sword. He generally only pulls his swords out when he has multiple arms to use them.
  • Has a complex relationship with Exdeath, God of Evil Trees, in the Nature Pantheon. Having formerly been a bungling second-in-command to him, Gilgamesh is referred to by Exdeath as "that useless fool". Gilgamesh however harbors no enmity towards his former superior and has thanked him for banishing him to the Void and allowing him to travel to other worlds for sword collection. When Exdeath responded by offering to do it again, Gilgamesh fled.
  • Not to be confused with Gilgamesh, God of Self-Aggrandization in the House of Pride. The two briefly crossed swords, ending with one of the Gilgameshes fleeing and the other being impressed enough with his skills to not pursue him. Though those who have heard the tale are confused over which of them ran, people who know this Gilgamesh understand entirely.
  • Word travels fast in the Pantheon, and discovering that his chosen rival had at last found his way to the Pantheon was like a godsend to him. Gilgamesh wasted no time in finding Bartz and reinvigorating their rivalry. It was a rough start, but the two have settled into their roles.
  • He did try swapping out his swords with guns once, but Sarah and Noel described him as being significantly more dangerous once he went back to using his swords.
  • Met up with a fellow sword collector that went by the name of Rey Mysterio. Gilgamesh, at first, laughed at how small Rey was...and then got his ass kicked around by him due to Rey's agility. Gilgamesh went after him with the Zantetsuken and nearly demolished the House of Sports in two before Rey came in with his own sword to fight him off. Bartz had to intervene before it got too far, and Gilgamesh has began to respect the luchador's skills.
  • Has recently signed a summon contract with the newly appointed Lady Yuna, ready to slice and dice at her call. When questioned as to why he agreed to the contract, Gilgamesh replied a little sheepishly that he just wouldn't mind being summoned by someone like Yuna. He considered forming a new pact with Squall to be "fair", but the SeeD turned him down.
  • Did battle with Erza Scarlet when he heard of her many collection of weapons and armors. During their fight, each of the Warriors lost and gain. For Gilgamesh, he lost his Muramasa and his Genji set. But he obtain her Spike Mace from her Purgatory Armor and Spear of Lightning from her Lightning Empress Armor.
  • Attempted to do battle against Ruby Rose to obtain her Crescent Rose. However, the battle didn't happen as she was too busy gushing over his many weapons. Flattered, the two weapon ethusiasts instead took pictures to with Gil's many weapons.
  • Once got in a scuffle with Owain when the latter went on a quest for the legendary sword Excalibur. Gilgamesh claimed to have it, and offered to let Owain borrow it for a week if he could lend him the Mystletainn in exchange. Both parties were later disappointed when they discovered they had swapped Excalipoor and Missletainn by accident. They fought, but despite Owain managing to get Missletainn back the fight was inconclusive, leaving Gilgamesh eager for a rematch, especially after Owain had the audacity to start calling himself "Odin."
  • To the surprise of many Gilgamesh can get serious as the Blademaster, and when he does, watch out!

    Gnasty Gnorc 
Gnasty Gnorc, God of Levels Disguised as Bosses (Guh-Nasty Guh-Norc)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/609135e3_7310_449e_aa6c_205adec6a397.jpeg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Mace.
  • Theme Song: Gnorc Nexus and Gnasty Gnorc
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Big Bad of the first game, Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass, Dirty Coward, Turns all dragons into crystal after they call him ugly, "Get Back Here!" Boss, Green and Mean, Squishy Wizard, Top-Heavy Guy
  • Domains: Gnorcs, Magic, Villains, Power
  • Allies: Ripto, Warboss Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka, Skarsnik, Neo Cortex, Bowser, Ornstein and Smough
  • Enemies: Spyro and any ascended Dragon, Sparx, Hunter and Bianca, Crash Bandicoot
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Malefor, Maleficent
  • Oppossed by: Most of the ascended Orcs
  • Gnasty Gnorc is a powerful Gnorc sorcerer that was banished from the Dragon Kingdom many years ago, only allowed to live in the dumping grounds since he wouldn't bother anyone there, eventually becoming Gnasty's world. One day when he was watching television, he witnessed how one dragon called him simple, harmless and most egregiously, ugly. That caused Gnasty to release a powerful spell that turned every single living dragon into crystal, except said spell missed a small purple dragon that went on to defeat Gnasty and liberate every single dragon. That dragon was Spyro and since then he went to become a hero to many people not only in the Dragon Kingdom but in other places such as Avalar and the Forgotten Realms.
  • Gnasty ascended thanks to Ripto, both having a reunion beforehand to discuss the "Spyro problem" and he wound up in the pantheon thanks to the Riptoc wizard opening a portal to the pantheon. The first thing Gnasty did was use the same spell that crystalized all dragons, which worked almost too well except it ended up not working on a few dragons who he didn't anticipate would be much stronger that those from his universe and so he ran away to the safety of his temple.
  • Wasn't happy to learn that Spyro was around as a deity long before Ripto managed to get him in. Of course, he quickly noticed when he fired his crystalizing beam and managed to somehow miss the purple dragon again. While there were even dragons pissed off at the Gnorc for the havoc he caused, they let Spyro handle him since he already has experience in dealing with Gnorcs.
  • Said to be kind of a weakling, in his first encounter with Spyro he went down in 2 hits and spent most of the fight running away. He would rather other deities would shut up about it or else he would pulverize them in with his mace.
  • Gnorcs are said to resemble Orcs and Goblins, which caused some confusion given that Gnorcs are closer to former in appearance. Most of the orcs look down on him because of his petty nature and the more fierce one think he is a weakling. They do recognize that his magic is dangerous and Gnasty has been trying to improve his toughness lately.
    • Warboss Ghazghkull thought that his magic would be useful and recruited him, making him an honorary ork. It's said that thanks to him he got a lot tougher but also much dumber.
  • Met Dr. Cortex after hearing about him from Ripto, the former having met Spyro in the past and suggested forming an alliance in order to take down the purple dragon and Cortex Arch-Enemy Crash Bandicoot. The clueless Gnorc wondered how did a strange orange marsupial cause so much trouble to the him until a chance encounter with the bandicoot had Gnasty suffer from some Comedic Underwear Exposure from Crash and left crying after so much embarrassment.
  • Maleficent felt sympathetic to how the dragons treated Gnasty, comparing it to how other fairies would shun her out but while both share common goals and are willing to work together, neither can stand the other on a personal level. Doesn't help that Gnasty isn't fond of fairies in the first place and the fact that she can turn into a dragon hasn't done any favours.
  • Similar to Ripto, Gnasty Gnorc has a feeble alliance with Malefor not only because he is a dragon, but because he is miles more powerful and competent than both him and Ripto. Malefor respects Gnasty a little more than Ripto because at least he gets to point and doesn't mess around and his crystalization spell could prove useful for him.
  • Ornstein and Smough, two notable enemies of dragons, approached the Gnorc one day with the proposal of aiding them in vanquishing all of the remaining dragons that roam their lands. As a reward, their boss Lord Gwyn would grant him enough gems to rebuild his army of gnorcs and possibly even help him take over the Dragon Realms as a revenge for vanishing him. He accepted the offer without a second doubt.
  • While he despises all the dragons in the pantheon, he actually gets along fine with Bowser, probably because while he resides in the House of Dragons he isn't really one. He heard of how the first time he tried to kidnap Princess Peach he turned all the Mushroom Kingdom residents into objects, similarly to his rampage in the Dragon Realms and has asked him if he could teach him the spell. Bowser just simply redirected him to his right hand mage Kamek.

    The Reaper 
The Reaper, God of Time Penalty Bosses and Chest Monsters (Death, Creamer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/88942780b46a7fd995ef94c1a0811877.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A card with a black skull above a pair of revolvers crossed and held together by chains on it.
  • Theme Music: F.O.E.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil (actually Lawful Evil)
  • Portfolio: Grim Reapers, Dual wielding Long-ass Revolvers, Bonus Bosses who comes after a certain time limit or from chests, Making ominious sounds when moving, Chains.
  • Domain: Guns, Bosses, Shadows
  • Followers: Grim Reapers, The Guardians, Skel-Monster, Evil Otto, all F.O.E.s
  • Allies: Barbatos Goetia, Tohru Adachi, WarMech, The Keeper

  • Enemies: Indiana Jones, Lara Croft, Nathan Drake and any other explorers note . Hell, everything what lives and isn't listed as one of his allies!
  • No one is sure how long The Reaper has existed in the Pantheon. It only was found when some god (speculation points to Nathan Drake) was reseaching the inner areas of the Pantheon way too long, spawning the Reaper to attack the god. The entity eventually wandered into this house and stayed in the darker corridors, where it can stalk prey.
    • Upon further (risky) investigation, a single open chest was discovered deep within the halls the Reaper first stalked, calling into further question as to the beast's origin.
  • Has find an ally in Barbatos as both of them support Anti-Grinding. In fact, if any one would try to use an item what can bounce off its magic, Barbatos would rush in and beat the guy before The Reaper would even cast Megidolaon on them.
    • Speaking of which, Susan Richards briefly encountered the creature. When she deployed her shields to stop the monster's onslaught, it was driven into a mad frenzy, spamming Megidolaon against her. Mrs. Richards managed to flee when she realized her powers were useless against its Almighty magic, but the damage left was extensive and she was asked not to return.
    • There is said to be a barrier spell in existence that CAN act as the perfect defense against it. It is temporary and costly to cast, but is purported to have blocked Megidolaons FAR stronger than what the Reaper could manage with no ill effect. Said spell is called "Shield of Justice" and it is used by Naoto Shirogane.
    • A spell with a similar effect, called Infinity, exists. However, it can only be cast by Minato Arisato who much prefers to cast Armageddon on The Reaper. The boy has cited this as a reason for loathing Satan and Lucifer; he requires the power of those two to cast it.
  • Where he might not be the hardest Bonus Boss as Investigation Team of alternate universe was able to face three of them in teams of two, he shall and will kill any one who is not prepared to face him.
    • If some one would defeat the Reaper, it would either drop a really powerful weapon or armor, an orb which nullifies most common elemental spells, or a bloody button which sells for a lot of cash. Flynn once got his hands on the button, either defeating the Reaper or stealing from it (swindling it away from the Reaper is impossible since it only wants to hear people's screams), but was bit annoyed that he could only sell it for yen and not for macca.
  • It is not to be confused with The Reapers where Harbinger is part of. Also Councilor Sparatus knows better not to dismiss the claim of this Reaper's existence.
  • Its behavior has started to change due to a certain event, mirroring that of the fearsome monsters, the F.O.E.s. Yes, even on Trope Pantheon, F.O.E!
    • These events also revealed an interesting titbit about The Reaper: it has a purpose of maintaining the natural providence of the world, and kill anything who would bring disturbance to it.
  • Ended up facing against WarMech once it was moved to Gaming house. Where The Reaper was the victorious one, but the two ended up being sort of "allies" (in the sense that neither of them will attack each other).
  • Got friendly with the Keeper, and decided to make a home within the Keeper's dungeon. Heroes and adventurers has gotten highly cautious ever since news of their alliance spread.
  • Will probably never live down the time when Yuki curbstomped it with Orpheus. A surprisingly powerful Orpheus which somehow knew Megidolaon, but still.
  • Another embarrassment occurred when the Phantom Thieves defeated it easily, with its only excuse being that it had the flu.

    Specter Knight 
Specter Knight, God of Early-Game Difficulty Spikes (Donovan Placentaur, Specter Butt)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/specter_knight_6.png

  • Allies: The Reaper, Gabriel Reyes, Darth Vader, Bass, Shovel Knight, Shadow The Hedgehog, Margaret Moonlight, Michael Jackson
  • Complicated Relations: Mona
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Plague Knight
  • Enemies: Shield Knight
  • Once known by the name of Donovan, Specter Knight was a carefree petty thief that hanged with his trusty partner Luan. While robbing the Tower of Fate to find a magical relic, things took a turn for the worst and both him and his partner ended up dead. The Enchantress, wanting to build up an army, gave him new life as the man he is today. Once his story was known to the world, the gods decided to take pity on him and ascend him to the Pantheon once the Enchantress was taken care of for good.
    • The main reason he ascended was because as Shovel Knight (and Plague Knight) can attest to, compared to Black Knight (first time) and King Knight, Specter Knight proved to be a surprisingly difficult fight.
  • During his crusade against the Order of No Quarter, Shovel Knight had crossed paths with Specter Knight to liberate the town his undead have captured. And while both worked for the Enchantress, sometime after Plague Knight had been strong-armed by Specter Knight into joining the Order, the alchemist in turn turned on his fellow members to acquire their (and Shovel Knight's) essence for the Ultimate Potion to impress Mona (not that he ultimately needed it to).
    • Once the Enchantress was defeated, Specter Knight came over to Shovel Knight's temple to thank him for freeing the Order of No Quarter from her grasp. And then he demanded for the return of the Phase Locket. After hearing how Shovel Knight came to get it, Specter Knight tracked the transaction back to Plague Knight and started knocking him around with his scythe like there was no tomorrow until Plague Knight's herald Mona put a stop to it. Given that Specter Knight has hung out with her to play her mini-game, he's decided to back down, but gave out a warning to everyone that any who steal his locket will answer to him.
  • Has become acquainted with the other forms of death, like The Reaper, Gabriel, and Margaret. When you see the four of them together, you better not be near them.
  • Shadow the Hedgehog has bonded with Specter Knight over their overly sentimental brooding about their pasts. The two of them have been hanging out a lot just to talk about their pasts and cause some potential mischief.
  • Once Michael Jackson saw that Specter Knight dances in a similar way to his thriller, he has invited the knight to some of his shows as a backup dancer.
  • Although he is amicable with the King of Pop, he has upset other dancers in the Pantheon by coldly turning away when they attempt to impress him with their moves.
  • Is aversive towards gods who are too forward, mainly for his fear that they will give him a fatal kiss.
  • Upon finding out that Shield Knight ascended and seeing her enter his temple to try and apologize for her time as the Enchantress, Specter Knight immediately lunged at her with the intent to kill, still believing that she was at fault for what happened to his partner Luan as well as stealing his life away. Thankfully, Shovel Knight was also there to help defend Shield Knight and fought Specter Knight to a stalemate. He would later give Specter Knight a earful for trying to kill his girlfriend as well as advising him to seek some help with his temper. Specter Knight could only sigh and reluctantly accepted anger management training with Amy Rose.

    The Tails Clan 
The Tails Clan, The God Clan of Non-Allied Villains

  • Domains: Bosses, Neutrality, Robots.
  • Followers: Alastor, Grey Fox
  • Allies: Naoki Kashima, Baal (in a very loose way)
  • Enemies: X, Axl, Zero
  • Where many of the evil aligned gods in the Pantheon are in some ways related to GUAE, the Tails Clan has no ties with them. They are just a clan of super powerful criminals who do their own things, not caring about what the GUAE is doing.
  • For the most part, the Tails Clan usually hides underground, with each tier of them guarding the other ones up to Ninetails himself. They accept any and all challengers, but they are in no ways easy, with each Tail having their own way of fighting. Especially Ninetails himself, whose Nine Fragments technique is regarded as one of the most dangerous moves in Pantheon that isn't a certified One-Hit Kill, with it doing 8991 damage guaranteed.
  • The House of Technology has been able to scavenge members of the Tails Clan who have been defeated to research on how they are able to conduct energy attacks without any type of power source. They are also wondering if the Tails Clan is an actual clan or are they all clones of Ninetails.
  • Ryu wonders how they were able to learn Annihilator Hadoken, though based on the name, it might be that they stole it from Akuma rather than Ryu.
  • Even though they are Reploid kitsunes, they do not view Kurama as their god or anything like that.
  • They view Zero as their enemy, though only because he is the only member of the group which defeated all of them who has ascended. They merely wish to have a rematch with him, "one"-by-one.
    • That was, until X and Axl managed to ascend. Now they can have a proper rematch against those who defeated them.
  • Miles "Tails" Prower would like to remind you that he has no affiliation whatsoever with these Reploid kitsunes. This…actually kind of annoys them, because usually they're the ones disavowing the idea of being tied to others.

  • Allies: Pit, Palutena, Captain Planet... kind of, most of the other members of the House of Nature, Remilia Scarlet, Ika Musume, Yutaka Kobayakawa, Brief, Elpizo
  • Enemies: Hades, Lysandre, Mordremoth.
  • Opposes: Panty Anarchy
  • Opposed by: Chrom
  • Rival: Cera
  • Additional Relations: Dark Pit
  • Views interest in: Lucario
  • She ascended after Pit realized that the House of Nature needed a destructive nature protector. He immediately thought of her.
  • She's mellowed out somewhat on her stance that Humans Are Bastards after meeting many of the other Gods who were at one time human themselves.
  • She hates Hexxus with a passion, to the point that if he's even five feet away from her, she will not hestitate to try and hurt him with her staff or powers. If she finds out he's trying to spread his pollution, well, the last time it happened, she dropped a Reset Bomb on his head.
  • As she was The Unfought for the time she appeared, it was originally unknown what position she was going to get in terms of rank. However, after apparently showing the Pantheon what she could do, she earned the rank of Intermediate Goddess.
  • She gets along well enough with most of the other members of the House of Nature, but she's kind of disapointed that none of them are willing to take care of the obvious problem with the enviroment: humans.
    • She also wants to recruit Lucario to her cause due to his power over aura. He turns down her repeated attempts, as most of his friends are humans and knows for a fact that not all humans are terrible. She is still determined to have him in her army.
  • She is often seen with Pit quite a bit, utilizing the Power of Flight for him. She often also blushes whenever he compliments her. She denies that she has any feelings for him, but nobody believes that for a second.
    • She tried to flat-out KILL Hades when he stated that "You two should get married!" They destroyed half of both the Houses of Nature and Villains, along with most everything between the two houses. She refuses to talk about it.
    • When asked, Hades simply stated, "Yow, she's a feisty one!"
    • Any more of her words becomes doubted after she learned that Panty has been seducing Pit into having having sex with her. Her response to that was to march into the House of Love and threaten the Fallen Angel to stay away from Pit. Panty only smiled, and asked why a piece of baby-faced man meat would want to waste time with a flat chested brat like her. What took place after that was a fight that nearly obliterated the House of Love.
    • Despite her general dislike for humans, she gets along rather swimmingly with Brief, though it could be that she sees him as chance to get Panty away from Pit once and for all.
  • She needs to keep her Reset Bombs under lock and key, and is only allowed to take them out and use them when given permission.
    • To that extent, Alexstrasza has acted as a restraining factor for her given the dragon queen's ability to do a similar job in a much more surgical, precise way.
  • She is the destructive counterpart of the first Nature Spirit to reside in the Pantheon, Nakoruru. Viridi is fine with her, but she gets annoyed with how Nakoruru occasionally had to get her to calm down in case she gets a wee bit too destructive.
  • Chuggaaconroy openly said that he ships her and Pit. While Pit was just horrifically embarrassed, Viridi had to be talked down by just about every positive emotion god to keep from dropping a Reset Bomb on the House of Gaming.
  • She has a surprisingly large soft spot for many of the good Equestrian deities in the Pantheon, and is particularly good friends with Fluttershy due to their shared love for wildlife. The Main House has since secretly commissioned them to try and curb her more destructive tendencies.
  • One of her jobs is to watch over the Great Valley. Unfortunately, this has lead her to butt heads with Cera because they hate each other's incredibly different personality.
  • Used to be the goddess of Immortal Immaturity, but her position was passed onto Remilia Scarlet. Viridi was pissed... until she realized that having such title removed from her would improve her image, so she let it pass.
  • Viridi and Ika get along well due to their mutual hatred of humans and Lysandre for trying to make Pokémon (read: animals) extinct.
    • Similarly has an understanding with Elpizo over the very same subject of humans and Lysandre, though in his case he objects to the deaths of Reploids that the latter would entail.
  • Upon learning that one of Petey Piranha's Piranha Plant followers had been let into the fifth Smash tournament, Viridi decided that to be the perfect opportunity to reveal her surprisingly wide knowledge of the different Piranha Plant species. The ensuing tangent was so fast, yet detailed, that many deities (especially Palutena) went on record saying they had the word "piranha" stuck in their heads for hours afterward. Petey and his followers have not yet expressed their opinions on this.

Lesser Gods

    Burroughs 
Burroughs, Goddess of Boss Warnings (the Fairy inside the COMP, The Goddess of Tokyo)

  • There are yet others whom she's drawn the attention of for her English voice: Lightning Farron, Black Cat, Emma Frost, Dr. Liara T'Soni, and Palutena.
    • Jim Raynor sometimes feels lonely around her, reminded of a scientist he helped and had to leave behind by the name of Dr. Ariel Hanson.
    • Sasuke notes that Burroughs sounded like one of his teammates back when he formed Hebi/Taka: the only female there by the name of Karin.
  • Has noted that Utsuho Reiuji, in the Subterranean Animism story, had the distinction of prefixing each of her spell cards with klaxons while the text "☢ Caution !! ☢" flares on-screen to the player.
  • As fellow AIs on the side of humanity, Burroughs gets along with like-minded fellows such as The Machine, EDI, TRON, and Yui. On the flip side, given that they're vying for superiority over humans, Burroughs opposes the Grand United Alliance of Machines.
  • "Congratulations on reaching the end of this profile!"

    Psy-Crow 
Psy-Crow, God of Skippable Bosses (Psycrow, Scourge of the Space Lanes)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_psycrow.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Worm-Hook Grappling Gun
  • Theme Song: Psycrow, Andy Asteroids (Shared with Jim) and See Jim Run, Run Jim Run
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Abnormal Ammo, Jim's Arch-Enemy, Bounty Hunter, Card-Carrying Villain, Creepy Crows, Feathered Fiend, The Heavy, Recurring Boss
  • Domains: Bounty Hunters, Space, Weapons, Mercenaries, Bosses, Races
  • Followers: Buzzar, Benny & Clyde

  • Enemies: Earthworm Jim, Samus Aran, Yondu Udonta, The Outlaw Star Crew, The Worms, The Graboids, Leto Atreides II, Zouken Matou
  • Opposed by: Dog deities
  • An infamous galactic Bounty Hunter who after a failed mission where he lost the Super Suit meant for Queen Slug-for-a-Butt and instead falling on Earthworm Jim, mutating him into the hero he is today, Psycrow has ever since butted heads with Jim numerous times. First by stalking him accross all the galaxy and a second time by kidnapping his love interest Princess What's-Her-Name, Psy-Crow has been a thorn in Jim side for a very long time and he plans to continue to do so until he gets his hands on the super suit again.
  • He was confused about his appointed title, but understood that if Jim managed to beat him on the race to the next planet, he wouldn't be able to ambush him and so he had to leave him alone therefore skipping him. Though that doesn't happen nearly as often, as he tends to engage Jim on land instead of chasing him in space. It's much easier that way.
  • Jim was less than thrilled to learn that Psy-Crow was around the pantheon, mostly because Psy-Crow just has made his life goal to destroy that worm and reclaim the suit. Oddly enough, the two usually settle things by racing across the Pantheon and whoever gets first chooses what they are going to do next.
  • Considered the unofficial leader of the Murkrows and he commands them to do whatever he wants to do. It usually is about stealing something special from a certain place, as they usually do but other times he just brings them along and makes them fight Jim, since he perfectly knows he hates those things because they keep pecking his head.
  • Doesn't know what to think about The Crow. On one hand, he respects it for being one of his own but at the same time he he knows it isn't really an actual crow but something else entirely. Even then, he doesn't working for her as long as it benefits him.
  • Other than bothering Jim, he is a Bounty Hunter and won't hesitate in going after someone if the price is right. He is acquiantanced enough with Boba Fett and Lobo that they can work together just fine but others like Samus Aran or Yondu Udonta aren't that fond of him, particularly given he usually works for very crooked people.
    • He can kinda be also labelled as a Space Pirate, even if he usually just works alone. For that, he sometimes works along the Eliksni and Felix, often tipping them off about certain Houses and Places they could loot and gain a profit. He is also trying to convince them to go after Earthworm Jim so he can finally get rid of that pesky worm.
  • If you weren't convinced by now, Psy-Crow loves consuming worm flesh, much so that he has gone after other worm-like deities besides Jim. His favourite victims are the Worms and Graboids, even if the latter are more of a different type of worm he used to confsume but he indeeds finds them tasty.
    • Then there were other deities who, while having ties to worms, left the crow very confused. One of those was Leto Atreides, whose Sand Worm form caught the interest of the Bounty Hunter but he decided against engaging him in combat because he was way out of his league. Then there was Zouken Matou, who is said to be made of a collective of Crest Worms and Psy-Crow was curious of their taste, so he plans to eventually see what are those worms really about. They have tried to warn him about his unusual form and being actually fairly dangerous, but he didn't really pay attention to those claims.
  • Dog deities despise him after hearing about how he kidnapped Peter Puppy's children and forced him and Jim to save them from falling to their deaths, especially because he nochlantaly tossed them from a window.
  • It's implied that he may have eaten Jim's parents, so their beef is actually more personal than one would think.
  • May or may not be a cow in disguise, same as Jim and Princess What's-Her-Name. Don't ask questions about what happened there nobody can even comprehend the absurdity of those chain of events.

  • Even though Whispy Woods counts Kirby as an enemy, he does not pursue this antagonism actively, due to a combination of being far weaker than Kirby and being a non-mobile tree.
  • His ascent to the Pantheon was Batman's doing at Wizardmon's behest. Batman came to the conclusion that Whispy Woods, as a longtime foe of one of video gaming's most iconic characters, would make an ideal plant within the GUAE.
  • Is utterly powerless against Johnny Appleseed, The God of Apples and his (former) herald, Applejack.
  • The tree is present in one of the arenas that certain gods battling each other take part of. The most Whispy can do there is try to blow the fighters off the platform that they're on.
    • There is another arena that Whispy is present in and in addition to the aforementioned gale wind attack, he can also shake some apples off the tree by himself. Fighters can use these apples for recovering their health, or they can throw the apples at their opponents for damage.
  • Petey Piranha, one of Whispy's former followers, managed to find a proper spot in the Pantheon. However, the two don't interact much with each other.
  • It should be noted that, despite his title, Whispy has gradually become less of a push-over in his fights against Kirby; utilizing new techniques such as the ability to inhale like Kirby, using his roots to stab at foes, and summoning an avalanche of apples. He's still the easiest boss in every game though...
  • While already an easy boss, fire will decimate him in a matter of seconds. So obviously, he's terrified of any deities that utilized fire.
  • Is a surprisingly forgiving individual, willingly gifting those nice to him with health items and collectables, even if they beat him up just a minute ago.
  • Soon after Whispy returned back from being another helpless Spirit caught in the war between Galeem and Dharkon, Something had changed in the normally friendly and forgiving Whispy. Kirby later visited Whispy in his temple only to be immediately and viciously attacked by Parallel Woods. The battle between Kirby and Parallel Woods in his twisted temple was a fierce battle and unlike any other battle Kirby had with Whispy prior ending with Kirby as the victor with Parallel Woods reverting back to his more docile self afterwards. Despite Whispy having no recollection of his brief rampage, People in the Pantheon have become more wary of his presence and some even see him as a threat for him to be able to go toe-to-toe with Kirby as a Worthy Opponent.
