Pantheon / Canines

Go To

Given some accomodation issues that the Court of Gods had to deal with in relation to the House of Mammals, it was decided that every deity who represented a canine should be relocated to this house.

If you are either a feline or a squirrel (or you bring one of them), we recommend avoiding this house as the residents are very prone to chasing them (some, granted, more than others—there are many residents of this house who have no such inclinations).

Intermediate Gods

    Chibiterasu 
Chibiterasu, Son of Ōkami Amaterasu, God of Puppies (Child of the Sun, Chibi, Mutt, Squiddy, Pooch, Dude, White Dango, Egg Head, Pork Chop)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Chibiterasu_7242.PNG
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Celestial Brush (just like his mom)
  • Theme Music: Preparing for Action
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: The Time of Myths, Clapping of Believers, Götterdämmerung, Physical God, noble wolves, Spinoffspring, Badass Adorable, having many Embarrassing Nicknames, Generation Xerox
  • Domains: Sun, Healing, Puppies, Purification, Life, Childhood
  • Heralds: His various companions; Kuni (his first and main partner), Nanami, Kagu, Kurow (though deceased), Manpuku
  • Allies: Amaterasu (his mother), the rest of the Sun Quartet and its Guest Star Party Members (of which he is),, Yukiko Amagi, Ken Amada, Team RWBY (except Blake Belladonna), The King of All Cosmos, San, Ashitaka
  • Enemies: Yami (specifically, one of his remnants known as Akuro), the rest of the Bringers of Everlasting Night, Yuuki Terumi
  • Ascended after his time in Nippon had come to a close, back to the Celestial Plain on a UFO flown by Issun. Chibiterasu and his mother were promptly reunited in a heartwarming manner.
    • In the early days of the Trope Pantheons, an envoy from there on behalf of the Court of the Gods arrived to invite Amaterasu among their ranks. Chibi and Issun couldn't join her that time, but she was allowed to visit them from time to time, and both were updated in what was going on in there, though we're sworn to secrecy.
    • Years later, sometime during Diana and Yuuki Terumi's attack on Amaterasu (where she lost her ability to call for the moon), the Court requested for Issun's help. Taking the UFO Gen made for him using Moon Tribe blueprints he found, he and Chibi (who did not want to leave his mother at her time of need) set off.
    • While Chibi was ultimately unable to contribute much in his mother's battle against Terumi besides warming her seat as her (temporary) herald, he drew the hearts of many during his time in the Pantheon that the Court decided to give him a seat as well; due to what he is and how he brings out the Cuteness Proximity in others, he was given his current title and promoted to a Pantheon god. The fact that he's friendly and heroic just like his mother only helps his reputation.
  • In spite of the fact that he's among fellow gods, he still has a tendency to get saddled with unfortunate nicknames. Mainly because calling him Chibi doesn't sound appropriate, and the nickname Snowy is already taken by his mother. Of course, there are several who just call him Chibi either out of respect or they couldn't bother with a nickname.
  • Chibiterasu and Amaterasu are regularly found playing with each other as parental and child canines are known to do, when they're not on celestial errands throughout the Pantheon (alone or with each other). And sometimes he gets caressed by her in her humanoid form, and the feeling of her fingers against his fur is so comforting. She's also been taking the time to teach him how to read, given that he was illiterate prior to that.
    • Chibi was a little confused at first that his mother had taken a more humanoid form due to circumstances pertaining to Terumi's beef with her, but eventually recognized that it's still the same mother. Hence, he's also occasionally seen cheering at the Battleground of the Gods in case his mom takes field.
  • Many of those who love all creatures have taken an especially keen liking to Chibi, so he's regularly detained and kept late by others in the Pantheon petting him, playing with him, and picking him up over their shoulder. He doesn't entirely seem to mind it, though.
    • On the top of his favorites are Yukiko Amagi (who is a friend of his mother), Team RWBY (Ruby and Yang having a Precious Puppy of their own, and Weiss having a weakness for them, though Animal Jingoism prevents him from connecting to Blake the same way), and Ken Amada (or more precisely his herald Koromaru, but Chibi likes hanging with the kid, too).
    • Sometimes, his mother assigns San and Ashitaka to watch on her as she handles other matters. The pup's ever cheerful demeanor never fails to put a smile in the "Princess"'s face.
  • Do not underestimate Chibiterasu. In spite of his cuteness and relative lack of strength (can't swim well, Wall Jump, or Double Jump), he has almost all of the same powers as his mother, even some powers that she does not, and he certainly knows how to use them.
    • While he can't change the time of day by using the Sunrise technique like his mother, he can use it to banish supernatural darkness.
    • Because of what he did to his mother (taking her Moon powers away and attempting to kill her), Chibi despises Yuuki Terumi and likes the King of All Cosmos for saving Amaterasu's life. Especially when he saved Chibi's when Yuuki tried to pull a Revenge by Proxy; being weaker than his mother, despite his accomplishments against Akuro, Chibi didn't stand a chance. But once the King of All Cosmos showed up to protect the pup, still remembering his last encounter with him, Terumi immediately bolted.
  • It is not known if Chibi's droppings can be explosive just like his mother's, but he hasn't learned to use them, nor has Amaterasu ever deigned to teach him to.
    • If he runs out of ink, Chibi resorts to ramming, bumping and 'butt-stomping'.

    Huehuecoyotl 
Huehuecoyotl, God of Wily Coyotes ("Very Old Coyote")
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/huehuecoyotl_cb.jpg
Huehuecoyotl depicted in the Codex Borgia.
  • Intermediate God
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (sort of)
  • Portfolio: The Trickster, Those Wily Coyotes, Amusement Motive Mixed With Blue and Orange Morality, Laid Back And Totally Amoral, Really Gets Around (Men And Women, Animals, Doesn't Care), Voluntary Shapeshifting, Jerkass Gods, Would Rather Pal Around With Humans Than Be Worshipped, Bunny-Ears Lawyer
  • Domains: Trickery, Mischief, Conflict, Sexuality, Song, Music, Coyotes
  • Alliesnote : Loki, Gabriel(Supernatural) (fellow trickster beings), Sam and Max, Wade Wilson/Deadpool, Mad Moxxi, Calistria, Panty Anarchy, Lucifer(SMT), Bart Simpson
  • Vitriolic Best Buds with: Homer Simpson, Wile E Coyote and the Road Runner, Nick Wilde, The Three Seekers of Knowledge, Kyu Sugardust, Pinkie Pie
  • Mixed relationship with: Quetzalcoatl (sometimes ally, sometimes opposed), Bugs Bunny, Ratatoskr, Screwy Squirrel (allies, rival and/or enemies depending on the mood)
  • Enemies: The Emperor of Mankind (one-sided), Merged Zamasu, YHVH, Lucifer(Supernatural)
  • Opposes: Yuuki Terumi, Dag
  • Annoys: A lot of people, including the House of Felines (except Bastet), Cerberus and Krypto the Superdog
  • Many mythologies have a trickster god, and Aztec Mythology is no exception. Huehuecoyotl, the "very old coyote" is the god of male sexuality, trickery, music and song. Taking the form of a coyote, he was a dualistic god who both had great wisdom and great immaturity. He's laid back, friendly and totally amoral.
  • Has a complicated relationship with humanity. He is generally friendly and laidback, but is rather callous and will incite war and genocide just to amuse himself. However he doesn't hate humans, and will help them when asked or share stories and music. The Emperor of Mankind believes that he is far too chaotic for humanity and is trying to get rid of him, but it's one-sided on his part.
  • Though Huehuecoyotl will cause problems for humanity and mess with them out of boredom, he does value them and is literally the closest Aztec god to mankind. For this, and his chaotic nature, he finds himself siding with Lucifer from Shin Megami Tensei, who despite some of his more amoral actions he'll never give up on mankind.
  • Zamasu finds him a childish mockery of a god, as does the Lucifer of Supernatural due to being a pagan god. Huehuecoyotl in turn feels contempt towards their absolute misanthropy. Yes, he causes problems for amusement, but he likes humanity, and doesn't put himself above them. He doesn't care for worship, instead he'd rather pal around with them.
  • Doesn't care for fellow coyote Dag. He's a jerk, and not a funny one. He does like Nick Wilde and Wile E Coyote, though Nick thinks he goes overboard at times. Also, he keeps flip-flopping on whether to help out Wile E Coyote or the Roadrunner, mainly because their antics are funny and he wants to "improve" them.
  • Upon hearing of the coyote god, Homer Simpson thought that this was somehow the same coyote that served as his spirit guide during a super spicy pepper-induced hallucination. He complained that Huehuecoyotl gave bad advice on his soul mate, only for the coyote god to point out he wasn't that coyote and played some pranks that Homer laughed at...at least until he became the butt of the joke. Bart found it pretty funny and Huehuecoyotl finds his prankster attitude endearing.
  • Has a habit of bothering the House of Felines, except Bastet due to being a goddess of fun and sexuality. He also likes annoying Cerebus and Krypto the Superdog, due to the former being tight-laced in doing his job and the latter because it's fun to mess with superheroes and their super-pets. More than often his pranks blow up in his face, much like when he bothers other gods. As YHVH has No Sense of Humor and wants to subjugate/replace all other pantheons, Huehuecoyotl doesn't bother.
  • The god of male sexuality, Huehuecoyotl will seduce whoever he feels like. Women, men, animals, he doesn't care. As such, he often hangs out in the lust sub-houses and sleeping with the inhabitants. He likes Kyu Sugardust as a fellow entity of lust, but she thinks he can go too far.
  • Has the same kind of sexual appetite as Mad Moxxi, Calistria and Panty Anarchy. Particularly Calistria, as he's effectively a lust deity much like Calistria. He also showcases his hedonism when it comes to partying, so he likes Pinkie Pie even if she finds him too amoral at times. However he is also having a civil conversation(as much as that's possible) with the Three Seekers of Knowledge, as he's a being of wisdom like them and likes to tell stories. At least when he's not eating loudly.
  • Hangs out with Loki and Gabriel from Supernatural, due to being high-tier tricksters. Or the House of Trickery as a whole. Also likes messing with people alongside Deadpool and Sam and Max. However while he is one to troll, even he thinks Yuuki Terumi is a douchebag and needs to improve his sense of humor. Terumi doesn't care what he thinks.
  • When it comes to fellow tricksters Bugs Bunny, Ratatoskr and the Screwy Squirrel, his mood and interaction with them varies. Often, the three enjoy pulling pranks and screwing with people. Sometimes, they compete and it causes a prank war. And once in a while, Huehuecoyotl acts like an actual coyote and starts chasing them for being a rabbit and squirrels in hopes of free lunch.

    Krypto the Superdog 
Krypto, God of Heroic Dogs (Superdog, The Last Dog of Krypton)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/krypto_5290.jpg
  • Intermediate Dog
  • Symbol: The S Shield with a bone nearby
  • Theme Song: Krypto The Superdog (during his most lighthearted moments, which are fairly common)
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Animal Superheroes, Cool Pet, Sacrificing Itself for His Master, Heroes Love Dogs, Tough Hound
  • Domain: Heroes, Animals, Powers
  • Allies: Superman, Supergirl, Power Girl, Steel, DC Heroes, Hachiko, Pikachu, Luna, Bubbles, Sora, Hibiki Ganaha, Chibiki, Inori Yamabuki, Gardevoir and Gallade, SCP-999
  • Enemies: Doomsday, Lex Luthor, Darkseid, Brainiac, most deities in the House of Crime.
  • What do you get when you combine the loyalty of dogs with the moral values of Superman? Krypto, The Superdog. Sharing the same heroic spirit as his master, Krypto does his best to help the innocent and defend his master. In fact, it performed two Heroic Sacrifices in different timelines; he died of Kryptonite poisoning against the Kryptonite Man while defending Clark. He also dived into the Phantom Zone to stop the Phantom Zone criminals from torturing Jor-El, Lara and Kal-El. And in the latter, Krypto didn't even have powers.
  • When Krypto ascended, he made a beeline towards Clark, super tackled him to the ground, and gave him a super slobber kiss that he wouldn't forget. Lucina thought it was cute.
  • Like many Kryptonians, Krypto gains super powers under the yellow sun, just in dog flavor. So not only does he gain super strength, super speed, vision powers, and flight, but he also has super sniffing.
    • Also, since canines already have greater senses then humans, being a Kryptonian dog, Krypto's sight and hearing are superior to Superman's.
  • Even though Krypto is a Superdog, he still poses the same level of intelligence of your average canine. Maybe.
  • Back in his home universe, Krypto usually stayed in the Fortress of Solitude, but with his ascension, he has way more freedom in the pantheon. Though, he is sometimes seen guarding the Pantheon Treasures.
  • Made a strange friendship with both Pikachu and Luna despite their species being consider natural enemies. They all decided to make a group of "Super Animals".
  • Is very protective of the Super family. That includes Clark, and both Karas, Supergirl and Power Girl. He will defend them if he sees any one of them in danger.
  • Like many beasts of the pantheon, Krypto can be summon by Chibiki when she sheds a tear. And like always, something always get destroyed once summoned.
  • Inori once use her Pickrun to talk to Krypto. She said he kind of sounds like Double D.

    Moro-no-Kimi 
Moro-no-Kimi, Goddess of White Wolves (Moro)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/moro_8.png
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: A wolf head silhouette, with two tails pointing out on each side.
  • Theme Song: Forest of the Shishi God (shared with Okkoto)
  • Alignment: True Neutral / Blue and Orange Morality
  • Portfolio: White wolf goddess, really big wolf, Physical God, adopted and raised the human San, who she'll protect no matter what, ships San and Ashitaka, calmly accepting death
  • Domains: Wolves, Nature, Divinity, Family
  • Heralds: Ichi and Nii (sons)
  • Allies: San (adopted daughter), Okkoto-nushi, Ashitaka, other Studio Ghibli deities, Amaterasu, Jon Snow, Arya Stark, Mowgli, Aisling, Spring Sprite, Xerneas, Yveltal, Suicune, Celebi
  • Enemies: Lady Eboshi, Cersei Lannister, Mr. Burns, Looten Plunder, Hexxus, Lysandre, Firebird
  • Complicated Relations: Baloo and Bagheera, Leman Russ, Balto
  • Moro is a wolf goddess who protected the dwindling forest surrounding a human settlement called Iron Town. A baby girl was once abandoned at her paws by her parents, trying to save themselves from the wolf's jaws. Moro adopted that baby and named her San, who she raised alongside her pups Ichi and Nii. Years later, in a confrontation with the Iron Town people, Moro was fatally shot. She decided that was it for her and awaited her death, even as an army of boar gods clamored for an ultimate showdown with the humans and her children fought alongside them. Moro's last act before the Forest God took her life was to save her daughter from The Corruption.
  • Moro and her fellow giant animal god Okkoto ascended together in time to fight a battle that was going on between San, Ashitaka and most of the Nature Preservers, and several polluters from the Houses of Commerce and Toxicity. The surprising reinforcements resulted in a swift and decisive victory for the Nature Preservers. San spent that night cuddling with her dearly missed mother and brothers.
  • She was never exactly nice to Ashitaka back in the mortal world and still remains relatively aloof from him in the Pantheon, but at the same time she goes on supporting the blossoming romance between her daughter and him. But as any good mother would do, she's made it clear that she'll tear Ashitaka into pieces if he ever hurts San. In the meantime, they fight alongside each other against their enemies.
  • Moro once saw Ichi and Nii playing with a strange white wolf that was surprisingly as big as them. San explained to her that the third wolf was a direwolf, he was called Ghost and he was owned by Jon Snow, a human she was interested in. Moro went to see for herself this boy who could claim that a giant wolf was his pet. She thought that he was like Ashitaka in some ways, and if Ghost approves of him enough to call him master, then it's not her place to contest that. Also, Jon is happy to tell her all he knows about direwolves, and Moro enjoys listening, so they're pretty good friends despite him being human.
    • Moro also likes Jon's half-sister Arya Stark, as the wild and deadly young girl reminds her of San at a certain age. Moro thinks that of all the Starks, Arya is the only one who lives up to the wolf that her family likes to compare themselves to. Probably also has to do with the fact that Arya set her direwolf free. Arya herself likes to hang around Moro and her pack, precisely because they remind her of Nymeria.
  • There's something about Cersei Lannister that really sets Moro's fangs on edge. It's probably that Cersei is like Lady Eboshi, just much, much worse with none of Eboshi's good qualities; Moro thinks the queen has nowhere near the amount of dignity that Lady Eboshi, who the wolf sees as a Worthy Opponent despite everything, had. She's completely willing to fight alongside Jon for a chance at ripping her head off.
  • She likes Mowgli as he reminds her of San, being also a human child raised by wolves. She can be very protective of the boy, even as San thinks he should learn to fend for himself better. Moro thinks the boy already seems resourceful enough, considering he defeated a tiger by himself, he just needs to be distanced from that bear who's planting unrealistic ideas in his head. She sees more eye-to-eye with Bagheera, though she thinks he worries too much sometimes.
  • While Leman Russ piqued her interest for similar reasons to Mowgli, the fact that he fights for humanity puts them at odds. Sure, Moro is not nearly as war-mongering as Okkoto, but she still doesn't think highly of the species that killed her forest. She also wonders if the wolves Leman uses in battle are there of their own will, or if they were enslaved like dogs. Leman himself has a ton of respect for the giant motherly wolf, though.
  • As far as other wolves go, she gets along okay with Sif, even if Sif seems inordinately loyal to a dead human in Moro's opinion. Zinogre looks nothing like any wolf Moro has ever seen, but she respects his strength. She doesn't really acknowledge Wolf O'Donnel as a real wolf though, due to his humanoid stance and customs. Moro bows down to Amaterasu, though this has less to do with Ammy looking like a wolf and more with the fact that she's the top goddess in Shinto. She also takes good care of Chibiterasu when he visits (technically it's Ichi, Nii and San who interact with him more).
    • Aisling easily befriended Moro and her pack through use of her white wolf form. Moro ironically approves of her over most real wolves in the Pantheon, perhaps because Aisling's story reminds her a bit of San's. Also, being a forest fairy, Aisling is comparable to the kodama that lived in Moro's forest.
    • She doesn't really like how Balto went on serving the same humans who mistreated him despite embracing his wolf heritage, but she leaves him well alone for the most part, especially as one of his brood, Aleu, did distance herself from humans. Balto himself looks up to Moro as she reminds him of the white wolf apparition who gave him the resolve to continue his journey.
  • As Moro is a protector of nature, she will often fight in the name of the Spring Sprite, who's capable of restoring wrecked landscapes; the nature spirit has come to love the wolf as one of her "knights". She is naturally at odds with the Firebird and the unnatural, gratuitous destruction it causes.
  • With Xerneas resembling the Forest God of her universe in both appearance and powers, it's a given that Moro would ally with the Legendary Pokemon. However the Forest God ruled over both life and death, so Moro considers that Xerneas, who only gives life, is not complete without the death-bringing Yveltal. Some may say this is a contradiction given what she thinks of the Firebird, but the Firebird is needlessly destructive and Moro understands that Xerneas and Yveltal are two halves of an essential cycle. Given how Yveltal tends to be vilified, the two Pokemon are glad that there's someone capable of comprehending that. For these reasons, Moro despises Lysandre for wanting to control life and death to create his perfect world where most beings are killed and only a few chosen by himself become immortal.
    • Moro has noted striking similarities between herself and Suicune; the wolf-like Aurora Pokemon also fights to protect the forest spirit Celebi, and is capable of purifying water on top of that. Moro's decided that she should give Suicune a paw once in a while.

    Zinogre 
Zinogre, God of Savage Wolves (Zinogre: The Living Thunderstorm, The Usurper, Zin. | Stygian Zinogre: Hell Wolf Wyvern, The Emperor of Hell | Thunderlord Zinogre: True Awakening, The King of the Thunder Wolves)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mh4_zinogre_render_001_1.png
Stygian Zinogre 
Thunderlord Zinogre 
  • Intermediate God. Borderline Greater God for the Thunderlord Deviant or when its under Apex status
  • Symbol: Its Hunter's Guild icons
  • Theme Song: Sparkling Blue Light, Resolve Flaring in the Heart (Thunderlord only)
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Literal Lightning Bruiser, Canis Major, The Slow Walk, Noble Wolf At Least In Presence, A Hellhound-like Subspecies, Charging Its Own Rage Mode (A Golden Super Mode for its Thunderlord Deviant), Unstoppable Rage, The Dreaded, Multi-Colored Lightning,
  • Domain: Walking, Savagery, Wyverns, Wolves, Lightning, Solitude
  • Allies: Terry Bogard, Cerberus
  • Rivals: Lagiacrus, Rajang, Xurkitree, Cole MacGrath, Gunvolt, Rathalos and Rathian, Deviljho, Brachydios, Iggy, Zapdos, Raikou
  • Enemies: Gore and Shagaru Magala, Deviljho, The House of Birds, Riptor, Azula
  • Interests: Agitha, Sig, Shino Aburame
  • Avoids: The House of Ice & Cold (standard and Thunderlord) The House of Electricity (Stygian)
  • Opposes: The Monster Hunters, The House of Weather
  • Size: 1295.31 - 2063.16 cm (Standard) 1397.18 - 1887.00 cm (Stygian) 1488.43 cm - 1902.73 cm (Thunderlord)
  • Fanged Wyverns are a classification of monster that lack wings and are quadrupedal with highly developed forelimbs. The first of the monsters to be classified as such is the large, lupine-like Usurper himself, Zinogre. The Fanged Wyvern Zinogre very slowly made its way into the Pantheon, uncaring of the peons as the Emperor made its entrance... And then some of the Monster Hunters jumped onto it and after the ensuing fight, the Zinogre was made the God of Savage Wolves. Zinogre seems a bit miffed about how that played out, though it seems proud that it carted a few of the Hunters who did so and got a godly title to boot.
  • Zinogre use of Thunder is only possible through its symbiotic relationship with Thunderbugs. The latter hide behind Zinogre, granting the Fanged Wyvern its signature powers through charging up while it turn provides protection from predators such as the Gargwa. Anyone stupid enough to try and get to the Thunderbugs anyways are turned into free lunch for the giant Savage Wolf. As you can imagine, neither Zinogre or the Thunderbugs are ever far from each other.
    • Because of this, individuals such as Sig and Agitha took an interest to Zinogre and have done some observing on their own. From a good distance away. Because they don't want to end up like any foolish Gargwa either. Shino Aburame is also intrigued by the Thunderbugs, but is also called to scene to help subdue a troublesome Zinogre through controlling the Thunderbugs themselves.
  • Almost immediately after its recovery from its introductory battle during its ascension Zinogre took to establishing its dominance among the canines in the Pantheon, way back before they got their own House and before Moro-no-Kimi came to the Pantheon. Perhaps rivaling them at the time was Grey Wolf Sif, though this hasn't been explored all that much due to her concerns primarily revolving around her master, Artorias. Zinogre soon came to acknowledge the Stand using boston terrier, Iggy, after having challenged the Usurper to fight. While the act of bravado didn't amount to anything other than defeat, Zinogre did respect the fire even if it came from such a tiny runt.
    • And speaking of dominance, it frequently clashes with other monsters formidable as it. Of note while the battles between Zinogre, Deviljho, and the Raths can only be described as slugfests, its fights with Rajang and Lagiacrus are a lot more flashy. Really, really flashy. And all to often has the Mêlée à Trois has dragged both Cole MacGrath, Xurkitree, and Gunvolt into the fray.
      • Eventually the Zinogre became so bold as to challenge the likes of Raikou, Zapdos, and Zekrom, all of whom are Legendary Pokemon. Although the Fanged Wyern maintains a rivalry with the former two, it and Zekrom has lot more animosity going on.
  • The Living Thunderstorm used to be the only monster classified as a Fanged Wyvern until the Hunter's Guild came to the New World. Now there's many Fanged Wyverns with some even inheriting part of the traits Zinogre hasnote . People often point out that it sort of killed the uniqueness Zinogre had though no one dares to bring it up to the monster's face. As far as Zinogre's concerned, however, it scoffed as if to say none of the newer monsters live up to him.
  • Zinogre can sometimes be seen prowling near the entrance to the House of Birds. As you can accurately guess it favors eating Bird Wyverns the most and found the residents to be a good enough substitute. The current ban on the Usurper has led the situation above and thus many are petitioning the Court of Gods a full on restraining order. At the very least Zinogre has also gone after velociraptors like Riptor, so it isn't quite dead set eating specifically them.
  • Though based on wolves though unlike them Zinogre prefers to hunt and travel alone than work in packs. Not like they really need each other anyways. Don't let Zinogre's large, burly body and occasional slow walks fool you, they have the speed, strength, and power to back themselves up. It's acrobatic breakdancer-like fighting style makes this Fanged Wyvern a very formidable foe to fight. Those who managed to watch or even fight the Zinogre themselves find that the beast takes some cues from the Lone Wolf of Southtown, Terry Bogard.
  • One day, there was an influx of reports concerning Zinogre suddenly turning Red and Black and Evil All Over. It is actually a member of the subspecies Stygian Zinogre, named after the River Styx, and it has been occasionally seen around the Pantheon. Rather than using the Thunder Element it instead uses the Dragon Element thanks to the bugs around it feeding on Dragonfell Berries, though it still takes the form of electricity. However this variation of Zinogre is actually weak to regular electricity.
    • Eventually there was another Zinogre that deviated from what was considered normal for the species. This time around there was one who's horns are curbed like the crescent moon and is perpetually surging with electricity in a now golden hue around emerald scales thanks to surviving previous encounters with Monster Hunters. This is Zinogre's Deviant, Thunderlord Zinogre, and to many its now Golden Super Mode may jog certain memories of those going even further beyond.
  • Zinogre strength is enough for some individuals in the Pantheon to target him by using the monster for their own ends. For example as a lightning bender herself Azula has plans on harnessing the power behind them, particularly wit the Stygian and Thunderlord. Though she's banned from the House of Beast for her abuse of animals and likely to be destroyed by the Beasthood if she tried to get past them, Zinogre promises to crush her.
  • Ever since the Magala's have made their presence in the Pantheon known through an outbreak of their signature the Frenzy Virus, the Zinogre has been uncharacteristically wary of it. Granted, many monsters know better than to cross paths with an Elder Dragon but the Magalas are different given the Zinogre doesn't want to get infected again. If you see a Zinogre in a sickish purple tint along with red, almost bloodshot eyes, then you already know it has fallen prey to the virus and became an Apex variant with all the strength that comes with it. That is, assuming, it hasn't noticed you first and mindlessly mauled you. The best one can do is put down the monster and wait for it to be reborn in the House of Life and Death.
  • Despite their title as the Usurper much of the species were, ironically, driven out of their original habitat by Amatsu Magatsuchi, an Elder Dragon with a control over storms which includes high pressure water jets. No member of the Zinogre species have any positive opinion on those affiliated with storms as a result and are more than likely to look at them with disdain.

    Fox McCloud 
Fox McCloud, God of Foxes and Dogfights (Fox Jr., Leader of Star Fox, Star Fox, Foxy Boy, Pup)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/foxssbu.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: An Arwing
  • Theme Songs: Star Fox Theme or Venom overall, and Area 6 for attacks on enemy bases
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: A Fox Named Fox, Guile Foxes, Reflectors, Incredible Piloting Skills, Barrel Rolls, Fire Fox, The Landmaster, Metallic Legs, Being A Leader, Looking A Lot Like His Father
  • Domains: Foxes, Space, Pilots, War, Leadership
  • Allies: The Star Fox crew (Falco Lombardi, Peppy Hare and Slippy Toad), Good Gods in the House of War, Samus Aran, Captain Falcon, Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen, Jon Jafari, Shiki Tohno (though he opposes his Nanaya-persona), Lu Xun, Zorro.
  • Worthy Opponent: Wolf O'Donnell
  • He and the rest of Star Fox were on patrol in the depths of space when they were attacked by one Captain Bucky O'Hare who mistook poor Slippy Toad as one of the malicious toads they usually fought against and seemingly killed him. This caused a righteously indignant Fox to send a Smart Bomb to the Righteous Indignation before having a one-on-one battle with Bucky himself. The match ended with Fox's legs blown off and him ramming into Bucky on his jetpack, choking the rabbit to death before blowing his head off with the blaster.
    • Thankfully, Slippy was able to make a full recovery from the attack. Nobody knows what happened to Bucky's soul, however; we only know that he has not ascended.
  • With Fox's ascension, this meant that the original 12 Smashers of Master Hand's first Smash Bros. tournament were in the Pantheon. The eleven veterans: (Mario, Samus, Captain Falcon, Pikachu, Yoshi, Kirby, Ness, Link, Donkey Kong, Jigglypuff, and Luigi) helped celebrate this with an epic free-for-all. It ended with the House of War, Combat and Technology in shambles when Fox used the Smash Ball to summon the Landmaster.
  • Would really like it if the Gods stopped asking him to DO A BARREL ROLL! Besides, it's an Aileron Roll! (The only reason Peppy didn't say anything at the time is because he decided the Aileron Roll sufficed.)
  • Together with Captain Falcon, they have performed the Wombo Combo.
  • He wishes to debunk rumors that Miles "Tails" Prower is his illegitimate son. Tails, an orphan as far as anybody knows, has yet to comment, though the parallels between the two characters do make one wonder.
    • If nothing else he could be more distantly related, like a long-lost uncle.
  • Is very annoyed when some of his followers demand about "NO ITEMS. FOX ONLY. FINAL DESTINATION."
  • Nobody is entirely sure whether or not Fox knows of any woman named Krystal. He has in some timelines, however, but our Fox doesn't seem to come from any of those timelines.
  • Even now, Fox wonders whatever happened to his father, who supposedly got killed in a struggle against Andross. He has made occassional visits to the House of Life and Death to see if his father was alive, but the gods of that house were unable to confirm his status. Still, Fox is determined to find out the truth.
  • Has recently been getting along with both Shiki Tohno and a portrayal of Lu Xun, of all people, possibly due to one certain similarity.
    • However, he finds Falco's friendship with Cao Ren a bit odd. Yes, (they sound somewhat alike), but Fox feels a bit odd about Cao Ren's personality: a stoic, no-nonsense attitude combined with being a bit of a "crane" with a very big heart.
  • Also has a spot within the House of Travel, under Air-Based Travel.

    Grey Wolf Sif 
Great Grey Wolf Sif, Goddess of Giant Canines
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-sif_4976.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Greatsword of Artorias
  • Theme Song: Great Grey Wolf Sif
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Heartbroken Badasses, Wielding Swords Between Teeth, Fragile Speedsters, Noble Wolves, Undying Loyalty
  • Domains: Wolves
  • Allies: Artorias, Gwyn, Guts, Murakumo,
  • When she ascended, the graveyard that she guarded was integrated into the Pantheon, to put her more at ease. Of course, this also means she never leaves said graveyard, as she continues to guard the tomb of her late friend, and reacts hostilely to anyone entering it. She's a little more at ease with the Chosen Undead, but still won't grant him/her access to the graveyard.
  • When she learned that her master had been ascended alongside the Lord of Sunlight, she was filled with great joy, though seeing Artorias so corrupted by The Abyss saddened her. She is happy to be by his side, nonetheless.
  • Artorias has decided to allow Sif to keep the weapons he gave her long ago, since they cannot help The Abysswalker now.
  • Has helped Guts every now and again due to him being similar to her master.
  • It had never been previously specified whether Sif was male or female, but one look through a book of Norse names revealed that "Sif" is a female name of Norse origin.

    The Hellhounds 
*Ominous Fog appears*

FETCH ME THEIR SOULS!

The Hellhounds, Deities of Demonic Canines

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hellhounds.jpg
  • Lesser Deities (They get stronger overtime)
  • Symbol: A Drawing of them
  • Theme Song: Hellhound round theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Hellhound, Raising the Steaks, Incendiary Exponent, Action Bomb, Originated in a Teleporter Accident
  • Domains: Canines, Undead, Aggresiveness, Fire
  • Allies: Samantha Maxis (Their master/owner), Cerberus, Hades, Chuck, Erma
  • Enemies: The Survivor Crew, Most Zombie Apocalypse survivors (especially mention to the Resident Evil deities), Cruella De Vil, Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, Mr. Burns
  • Source of interest for: Pyromaniacs
  • The Hellhounds are a pack of demonic undead dogs whose job is to hunt down anyone that their master wants dead. Their origin dates back to a Teleporter Accident involving Samantha's pet dog Fluffy that ended up reanimating her as a hellhound, not to mention she was pregnant. Nowadays they are under the command of Samantha and will not hesitate to attack anyone that she decides is her enemy.
  • Originally they made quite a mess since they started to attack numerous deities before Samantha managed to calm them down and relocate them to a new position. Usually they can be seen wandering in their temple, but they are very aggresive, so it's advised to not approach them.
  • The deities they mostly target have been those that are already use to zombies, mostly the Survivor Crew partly because Samantha's hatred for Richtofen has made her unleash her minions against him. Other times they have attack Chris Redfield and his allies, but they have previous experience when dealing with the Cerberus, so the hellhounds were not big deal.
  • They seem to treat Cerberus as their superior when he is around, being the most recognizable and powerful hellhound around certainly helps. His owner Hader has also taken interest in the zombified dogs and is probably considering adopt them if Samantha allows him.
    • Another dog that caught their attention was Chuch, where they unknowingly attack him thinking he was someone else. They certainly took a beating after he transformed into a bigger hellhound and proceed to maul the small pack that attacked him, but have stayed on friendly terms ever since.
  • Cruella De Vil is apparently crazy enough to be considering to try to make a coat out of them. Unfortunately for her, Samantha already her about what she tried to do to the dalmatians and had preemptively send a few of her own hellhound to pay her a visit.
  • Although they are called Hellhounds, they aren't actually demonic dogs, just undead ones. The House of Demons is thoroughly disappointed about that.
  • Their origin was thanks to a Teleporter Accident, so Mad Scientists are the people more likely to end up being attacked by them. Considering Richtofen was behind said accident, it surprises no one.
  • There are certain types of Hellhounds that come doused in flames, which is an indication that said hound will explode upon being killed. This has earned the attention the Pyromaniacs, not because of their usefulness, but because the flaming ones look cooler to them.
  • Erma got to meet with the hounds after Samantha personally invited her, knowing that she wouldn't be too bothered by them. Erma considers them really cute creatures and often drags her dog Siris to "play" with them. Surprisingly, the Hellhound don't mind the presence of him.
  • Samantha developed a small rivalry with Mr. Burns since he kinda envies her for having more "efficient guard dogs" as he says. That said, he sensed that the Hellhounds might be too dangerous to attempt to capture one and make it his own, so he prefers to stay away from them.

    Iggy 
Iggy, Annoying Little Yappy Dog of The Gods
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iggy.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Stand, the Fool, and/or a pack of coffee-flavored chewing gum
  • Theme Song: Fool of Sand or Iggy Walk
  • Alignment: True Neutral with heroic tendencies
  • Portfolio: Small & Annoying Purebred Boston Terrier, Sapient Anti-Heroic Dog, Loves Coffee-Flavored Gum, Getting Human-like facial features at times, Humans Are Bastards/Morons (former philosophy), Sand Manipulation, Gass Hole, Spanner in the Works, Accidental Hero, Heroic Sacrifice
  • Domains: Dogs, Sand, Antiheroism
  • Followers: Mr. Muggles, Percy, Chloe, Gidget, Snowy, Lillipup, Spunky, Bandit
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Krypto, Great Wolf Sif, Zinogre, Lloyd Irving
  • Enemies: VANILLA ICE, Dio Brando, Hol Horse, Ungalo, Rikiel and Donatello Versus,The Pillar Men, Yoshikage Kira, Diavolo, Enrico Pucci, Giorno Giovanna (one-sided), Cerberus, Sir Crocodile, nihilists, human haters,
  • The final member of the Stardust Crusaders, Iggy the Boston Terrier ascended at last after his Heroic Sacrifice saving Polnareff from Vanilla Ice. Of course, he could've ascended much earlier if he hadn't pissed off the Court; he made his displeasure known by jumping up and farting on the face of anyone he could. Eventually, the Court finally allowed Iggy to enter the Pantheon after his lengthy evaluation.
  • He was welcomed by all his allies in the Stardust Crusaders. Polnareff couldn't hold back his tears as he picked up Iggy and the others looked on with proud smiles. The moment was cut short when the terrier once more jumped up and bit Polnareff's hair, stunning the Frenchman and making the others laugh.
  • Later on, he was introduced to other members of the JoJo. At first, he thought Jonathan was Dio, but was soon informed that Dio later took his body for his own and that Jonathan was the original owner. He later allowed Jonathan to pet him, as Iggy reminded Jonathan of his own dog.
    • However, as much as anyone would tell him otherwise, he does not get along with Giorno. Anyone related to Dio, even though he doesn't share his father's evil tendencies, is unforgivable to him.
    • But Iggy will not hesitate when comes to the others sons of Dio
    • He was furious to learn that not only was Dio in the Pantheon, but so was Vanilla Ice, Iggy's murderer. He would immediately start training to prevent his weakness — being a simple dog — not stop him from exacting his revenge.
  • After settling in the Hall of Canines, he immediately began to establish dominance over it the same way he did with his dogpack in New York. Some of the dogs just shook their heads at his bravado and others eventually challenged him to a fight. Nobody expected Iggy to then show human-like levels of intelligence and cunning, along with revealing a stand, named The Fool, and using its versatility. Iggy put up a decent fight, but even he was outclassed by the likes of Krypto and Sif. Instead of being upset at his loss, Iggy merely grinned. He would enjoy his stay in the Pantheon.
  • Iggy used to hold a distrust of humans, considering them to be stupid and/or bad. It was after journeying with the Stardust Crusaders that he warmed up a bit to them, but still doesn't look very kindly on humans in general. The only way to accept humans, he decided, is by earning his respect. Still, many nihilistic deities and/or human-haters try to turn him away from the slight goodness of humanity. He replies by either farting in their faces or siccing the Fool on them.
  • Even though he isn't too fond of humanity, he does have a soft spot for innocent children, hence why he enjoys being around both Chiyo-chan and Yotsuba. Woe be to anyone who would harm them in his presence.
    • The same courtesy was also given to Colette Brunel, as she is a kind-hearted dog lover as well. Amazingly, without even knowing his name, she called him Iggy (as is customary of her to identify the name of any dogs she has never met) and this made him really happy. He does tend to get annoyed with how klutzy she is, but he also chose to protect her as well. Naturally, he and Lloyd don't get along; the swordsman has been the target of a few face-farts already.
  • Since Iggy tends to get himself easily injured (even as a Stand user, he's still a tiny dog), he is one of Tesshou's frequent patients. At first, he mistrusted the R.E.D. vet, but through talking with Dog, he decided to give him a chance. Iggy shows Tesshou respect, being his personal vet, though even he wonders just what drove Tesshou to name his dog, Dog.
  • For some strange reason, Iggy's facial features tend to change to a more human-like appearance the longer he spends around any member or ally of the JoJo faction. When far away from them for a long time, he regains a more canine appearance.
  • Iggy often threatens certain humans of the Pantheon with a "Tonight, you". Though when facing Vanilla Ice in the mortal realm, Polnareff tried getting him to say this to see if he was alright, only for him to say "Tonight... Me."
  • When not in the Hall of Canines, he tends to wander off to explore the many Houses and Halls within them. Many gods have seen him steal random scraps within the House of Food, sleep on empty bookshelves in the House of Knowledge, walk down the halls of both the House of School and Elysium Academy, spectate in matches at both the Combat Dojo and the Sports Stadium, and has even been caught (somehow) eavesdropping in the Main House. Nobody knows just how he manages to do it and that suits Iggy just fine.
    • It was during one particular sojourn to the Hall of Earth & Metal when he witnessed the blind earthbender Toph Bei Fong and the sand ninja Gaara once more sparring with one another. Scoffing at their abilities, Iggy chose to crash their fight. The two fighters were stunned seeing (figuratively in Toph's case of course) him alongside the Fool and agreed to have him join their battle as a three-way. Iggy put up a decent fight but was clearly outmatched by Toph's superior sense of earthbending and Gaara's total mastery of sand. Still, the Boston Terrier didn't give up, because in his mind, a loss to them would mean the liability to lose again to Vanilla Ice. Eventually, he had to give up; he couldn't take any more damage to his small canine body. The two earth masters noted how Iggy kept going even when clearly outmatched and each offered to help him train and improve his abilities. Iggy was upset at first, since he was too proud to ask for help, especially from humans. He eventually swallowed his pride, knowing full well he has to be stronger for his eventual rematch against Vanilla Ice, and agreed to be trained. What results will come from Toph and Gaara's regimen towards improving himself and the Fool have yet to be seen.
    • During one of his excursions to the House of Logic, Iggy was approached by Mako Mankanshoku who thought Iggy sounded like her dog. After a lengthy battle, Iggy thought Mako was an okay human to be around to get some extra scraps.

    Jake the Dog 
Jake the Dog, God of Canine Companions (Groucho, Baron of the Grasslands, Randy Butternubs, JMO)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jakes_at_transparent.png

  • Symbol: His Head
  • Theme Song: Bacon Pancakes. Alternatively, My Name is Jake
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Big Friendly Dogs, Sizeshifter, Rubber Man, The Slacker, Interspecies Romance and Beta Couple With Lady Rainicorn, One of the Kids, impatient and tactless, Heroic Comedic Sociopath, Very Susceptible To Belly-Rubs, Mellow Fellow, Not That Good Of A Parent, Real Men Cook, Reformed Criminal, Superpowerful Genetics, Half-Magical Dog, Half Stretchy Alien
  • Domains: Adventure (why not?), Shape, Family, Comedy.
  • Heralds: Joshua and Margaret (His parents and Finn's adoptive parents), Jermaine (His brother and Finn adoptive's brother)
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: The Lich, Orgalorg, Tirek, Death Phantom, Princess Morbucks, Baby Bonnie Hood, The Facehuggers, Hero Killer Stain
  • Fears: The House of Vampires
  • Jake ascended to stay close to his brother Finn. His loyalty was rewarded by O-Haruhi-sama, who gave him his current position: Big, Friendly Dog.
    • That turned out to be a mistake, as Jake wasn't even that big most of the time. So the Court scrambled to find a better one and found Canine Companion. That is what he is to Finn, after all. The trope might normally apply to pets, but Tropes Are Flexible, so that's what he's taking.
  • His stretchy powers are something to admire, capable of shrinking and enlarging to massive amounts and forming just about any shape, though he cannot do so infinitely. This is thanks to his partial alien heritage after Warren Ampersand bit his father's head, and he was born from pustule that grew there as a result of that. He has the potential to become an Intermediate God, but he's too lazy to use his full potential. Naturally, he gets along with Monkey D Luffy due to being an amiable Big Eater with stretchy powers.
    • He also gets along with Amethyst, who's also a jokester with shape-shifting powers. While all the Crystal Gems have this power, she uses it more often, and sometimes tries to convince Jake to use his more often for whatever pranks they might come up with together. He's also surprised to find out that she's also a proficient cook (despite her palate) just like him, and they sometimes (though not often) share recipes.
    • The extent of his powers go so far as to be able to stretch himself to create an entirely new "person", move objects through his body freely (as Princess Bubblegum can attest to personally), enlarge his liver to nullify a poison in his body, and so on. He can also be stretched against his will, as Finn has done at least twice, and even his body might use his power against him, when his stomach punched him in order to wake him up and start eating.
    • The way he was born has drawn comparisons to Athena, who isn't amused by this.
  • He displays a prowess for skateboarding, being able to perform jumps, ollies, and grinds, even atop a moving train. He can also read Braille.
  • Jake is a skilled musician as well, going so far as to have his first words after coming out of Joshua's head be a song and dance. He's particularly good with the viola, but can also do the acoustic guitar, the ukulele, beat-boxing, singing, and turning his butt into drums.
  • Gets well along with both Aquaman and Bender, since they all have the same voice, it's OUTRAGEOUS!.
    • For that reason, many mortals and some deities used to try to get Jake to say "bite my furry yellow ass!" However, he made it clear he didn't want to do that; nobody has bothered him about it since.
    • After meeting Bender, Jake was soon introduced to Fry. They got along wonderfully, impressed with his treatment of Seymour.
  • Every time he has a chance to have any wish granted, his first choice will always be a sandwich. This is likely because the idea of wishing for something important terrifies him.
  • When the House of Gaming was founded, he eventually decided to introduce Card Wars to it, and is willing to teach people how to play it.
  • Apparently, his insides smell like vanilla because a wizard cursed him.
  • Used to be a criminal, and probably would've remained so had Finn not entered his life. Of course he's reformed, but he's under the eye of every deity in the House of Justice. One of his kids was later involved in a gang, but he's sorted that out.
  • When Lady Rainicorn ascended, Jake was the first to greet her. The two were very happy to be together again, and they immediately visited the House of Love. The two have Rainicorn-Dog hybrids, known affectionately as corn-dogs.
  • He despises the Lich, arguably more so than any other pantheon member because he got personal with him; the Lich killed Billy, and later turned Prismo to ash (the latter got better). And to his horror, an alternate version of Jake was transformed into the Lich, though they later on managed to undo that incarnation.
  • Jake assumed that he got his stretchy powers from rolling in a mud puddle. The truth is his father was impregnated by an Eldritch Abomination shape-shifter, making him half-abomination. He remains clueless about this, but has some subconscious awareness as he is wary of the Facehuggers. Recently, however, Jake learned the truth of his origins while investigating Joshua and Margaret's old headquarters and has managed to make peace with it.
  • He gets along quite well with the Guardians of the Galaxy, particularly with Star-Lord, since he also knows what it's like to have a long-lost dad who's a shape-shifting jerkass that only wants to use him for his own gain. He can sometimes be seen trading stories with Rocket about their criminal pasts.
  • For anyone in the Pantheon that can't dance, Jake's always more than happy to show them how it's done.
  • He, along with the rest of the Adventure Time were given a huge send-off from the Pantheon gods when his show finally came to an end. The newer Cartoon Network deities in particular were torn up about its ending, many of them drawing influence from the show.
  • With his show now over, he, along with Finn, Mordecai and Rigby now look over the other CN deities of The New '10s and regularly offer them guidance.

    Renamon 
Renamon, Goddess of Fantastic Foxes (Lunamon, Relemon, Viximon, Kyubimon, Taomon, Sakuyamon, Youkomon, Doumon, Kuzuhamon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/renamon_ex_collectors.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess (Intermediate as Taomon and Sakuyamon)
  • Symbol: A taijitu with triangular dots and the purple symbol on her knees
  • Theme Song: "Flaming Ice", "One Vision" (Sakuyamon version)
  • Alignment: True Neutral —> Neutral Good
  • Domains: Foxes, Kitsune, Mysticism, Taoism
  • Portfolio: Foxes as symbols of magic and mystery, graceful fighter, Koyosetsu, Gabumon expy, increasingly humanoid as the levels advance, The Stoic, ability to show up and disappear into thin air, nocturnal and a Nightmare Soldier but not evil, shapeshifting powers in the lower levels
  • High Priestess: Ninetales
  • Allies: Good Digimon deities, Fox McCloud, Mr. Fox, Tails, Kurama, another Kurama, Judy Hopps & Nick Wilde, Anubis, Rei Hino/Sailor Mars, Reimu Hakurei, GUAG White Hats
  • Enemies: Evil Digimon deities, Love Machine, Enter, Sombra, Master Control Program, YHVH, Shelob, Ungoliant
  • Friendly Rival: Lucario
  • Renamon is a Digimon based on various Asian fox myths, including kitsune (even though her name actually comes from the French word for fox). Though she's at the Rookie level, she already has the stature, power and mental maturity of a Champion. In her early levels she's a good, fast attacker, akin to a ninja in her fighting style, while in higher levels she takes on the garbs of onmyouji and becomes more defense-oriented, becoming specialized in barrier and summoning magic. The species' most remarkable accomplishment is fighting and destroying the D-Reaper, who wished to delete everything, including the real world, alongside a human partner, Dukemon and Beelzemon. One was also part of the Xros Heart army.
  • Her ascension happened at the request of Omnimon to reinforce the ranks of Digimon in the aftermath of Millenniumon and Diaboromon's ascension. Since she's an excellent representation of the mystical attributes of foxes, she was given the Fantastic Foxes trope.
  • She's good at concealing her presence. Not only does she have the usual kitsune gift of shapeshifting, she also has an uncanny ability to make herself completely unnoticed without actually hiding. As such, she has freaked some deities out of their skin by showing up at their side before they could even sense her.
  • Her long-time friend Dukemon was overjoyed at her ascension and welcomed her with open arms. Beelzemon was also glad in his own, standoffish way, considering how much concern she showed for him back in the mortal planes. The remaining good Digimon also welcomed her, since she's another Digimon with a just heart and considerable power, and thus an invaluable addition to their ranks.
  • Like all good Digimon in the Pantheon, she fights to protect cyberspace from any who'd destroy it or use it for nefarious purposes, which naturally makes her allies with a great deal of Internet-based good-aligned deities, namely the GUAG's White Hats.
  • She took notice in particular of the aloof hacker Lisbeth Salander, realizing that despite her harsh and anti-social demeanour, Lisbeth really does care that good triumphs in the end. Not able to bring herself to leave Lisbeth alone, Renamon took up watching over her, because as violent as Lisbeth can get, she's still only a petite human. Whether Lisbeth liked it or not, the Digivice that marked her as Renamon's Tamer materialized in her hands. Lisbeth indeed had a few reservations about being bound to a Digimon, being used to working solo. She definitely saw the value of such a connection, though, when she was attacked by the Kecleon brothers and their swarm as revenge for the stunt she pulled on the House of Commerce when she first appeared in the Pantheon. Renamon evolved for the first time and fought the swarm off, solidifying their partnership.
  • Prefers to ignore her status as a sex symbol in the Furry Fandom. She won't declare the furries who fetishize her to be blasphemers or persecute them or anything, since at the end of the day they're some of her most devoted followers. She just wants their particular mode of reverence to be kept where she won't see it. If anything good has come of this, it's that it's served as an additional bonding factor with fellow fox deities as they all shake their heads at their followers' follies, and got her another friend in Anubis, who feels her pain like no one else.
  • Renamon is interested in testing her strength against all the mons in the Pantheon. Lucario is a particularly Worthy Opponent for her because of their very similar fighting styles, and when he decides to Mega Evolve, she's forced to evolve to her highest level as well to keep up. Despite what Wiz and Boomstick might claim, though, they're actually pretty good friends and aid each other against enemies, and they make quite a fearsome combo.
  • Few people realize that Sakuyamon has a Super Mode akin to Dukemon's Crimson Mode. It's called Miko Mode. Admittedly it seems less suited for fighting than standard Sakuyamon, but it gives her heightened exorcising abilities. Renamon in general has a lot of affinity with the ancient East Asian faiths, and with her resembling a sacred fox spirit and her higher forms being religious figures, she has curried favor with the Mikos of the Pantheon, such as Sailor Mars and Reimu, and can sometimes be seen helping to protect their temples like a good fox spirit. Conversely, YHVH and his goons hate her because she "promotes" false religions.
  • In the mortal planes, one kind of Digimon that managed to get one over on her (at least briefly) was the spider-based Dokugumon, which poisoned her and ensnared her in its webs. Because of this, Renamon's mane spiked at hearing that the Pantheon contains some giant, venomous spiders that love nothing more than eating those who wander into their lairs and are way more powerful than Dokugumon. They weren't amused at hearing she'd defeated one of their followers either. Renamon will use her holy powers to drive them back into their lairs whenever they come crawling out of them.

  • Opposed by: Soap MacTavish, anyone who doesn't like dogs, Papyrus, Lemongrab, Eustace Bagge
  • It's a dangerous world in the Wastes, and exploring it alone isn't recommended save for the more enduring of individuals. Maybe your choice of ally is a former greaser bully back in the Vault, a grandmotherly super mutant suffering from insanity and past memories, or it could just be your run of the mill canine. The name Dogmeat actually refers to a series of canine companions that follow legendary wastelanders. The original one that traveled with the Vault Dweller to stop the Master and the Unity died from a forcefield (didn't get the memo, though). Another in the Capital Wastes helped the Lone Wanderer in their exploits to find their Dad, take back Project Purity, and take down the Enclave for good. The one in the Commonwealth helped out the Sole Survivor in their travels to find their son.
  • The Commonwealth's Dogmeat was the first to ascend, seeking to follow the Sole Survivor. They, along with their Heralds, welcomed the wasteland hound. Not too close behind are New California's and the Capital Wasteland's Dogmeats, although both are disappointed to hear that their masters have not ascended yet. The two stay here alongside the Commonwealth's to await their return. When not travelling somewhere, they can be seen in their temple, a Red Rocket truck stop, alongside their Heralds and followers.
  • Cute as the Dogmeats are, don't underestimate them. Normal dogs, yes, but ones that have endured the harsh wastes' inhabitants. Abominable mutants born from radiation or otherwise, remnants of the United States clad in top of the line Power Armor and weaponry, synthetic humans created from a shadowy organization, and much more. Especially if it means defending their loved ones, they will tear someone's throat out if they can. It doesn't always mean it's a good idea, though.
  • Suggested by the Sole Survivor themselves they went out to try and befriend deities. In their House they became allies with Krypto and Jake, and are pretty happy when they are around. The same can be said with Bladewolf, acknowledging the troubles he went through and his noble views on free will. The Courier seems fond of them as well, their Canine Companions Rex and Roxie being their followers, and it's not uncommon for them to accompany the Mojave Wastelander when the Sole Survivor is busy.
    • Have heard many tales of Pikachu and Yoshi's travels with Ash and Mario, respectively and bonded with them as a result. Some days you can actually find all five of them having their own adventures, although you likely never would of seen them in its entirety. Apparently one of those involved them helping out Courage and Muriel, who was being chased by Graboids at the time, by luring it to Lemongrab's temple to wreck havoc there. Couldn't of helped Eustace though, he died before it got resolved after being rude to them.
  • Being canines themselves, they have a poor view on those who wish harm on them. Dr. Borous' cruelty towards his own loyal dog Gabe along with his other experiments involving Cyberdogs was pretty sick, but at the very least he felt bad for what happpened to Gabe. Cruella de Vil on the other hand, and her attempts of turning little puppies into a coat sickens them to the core. They also hate any raiders they come across within the Pantheon given their own bad experiences (old owners got attacked or killed by them). None of the Dogmeats hold any respect to Immortan Joe, Junkrat, or Roadhog.
  • Papyrus can't really trust any of the Dogmeats, mostly due to the fact that one dog seems to exist to annoy him. Soap MacTavish also doesn't like them, though nothing against them specifically, he just dislikes canines in general. They don't seem to mind either, though. Ordis seemed to be on the same boat, given his attitude on Kubrows... until they learn his disdain for dogs is a facade, he's actually really fond of them. So much so that any threats to them results in something akin to a Berserk Button.

  • Many gods made their case in the Pantheon through sheer acts of bravery. This deity merely showed unprecedented amounts of Undying Loyalty to his owner, and just so happens to originate in the real world. A purebred Akita dog, Hachiko always came by to Shibuya station in order to see his master. It was a feat that would continue even after Ueno died at work. He waited for his deceased master to return until his own death occurred, going to the train station where his master would go to for thirteen years. This is true loyalty. For this, he ascended into Godhood, but still waits for his master to come home.
    • Eventually, someone revealed the truth to Hachiko. The next few days were filled with nothing but Hachiko's howls that caused many emotional gods to cry along with him. The Pantheon ran out of tissues because of this.
    • There is a bit of a bitter sweet ending in all of this. A new statue was recently created with him reunited with his owner at long last. It would be the best that he can hope for.
    • When Gottwald found out about the dog's ascension, he volunteered to take care of the dog's temple. He knows that he would never be able to replace the old companion, but Gottwald hopes to be the best alternative he can be. For his part Hachiko has shown positive reception to it.
  • Because of this, Hachiko now serves as a symbol of loyalty and love. The dog is especially highly regarded in the Houses of Love and Friendship. Couples come to his temple to pronounce their undying love and loyalty to one another. True Companions renew their vows to stick around.
  • Neku and Beat usually can be seen with Hachiko, sometimes even playing with him.
  • Whenever Philip J. Fry walks by the temple, he can't help but shed a single tear. He too was torn away from his loyal dog who waited for a master who had no way of returning back to see him. It would be many years until he found out that Seymour did indeed obey his command to his dying breath. Even then...Distraught over the revelation, Fry again contemplated over cloning the dog... that is until Hachiko brought Fry to his side as his high priest. Overjoyed, Fry embraced his pet... then told him that he would rather have Seymour stay at Hachiko's temple. While restricted from entering the rest of the Pantheon, Fry is at least satisfied that his dog has new companions to call friends.
  • His kind is revered by virtually all dog deities residing in the Pantheon. While not all of them have owners to care for, none of them speak ill of the canine. Even evil ones such as Hellhounds shy away from attacking his temple out of respect.
    • Scooby Doo is among the few deities that has visited his statue in Japan. While he was initially obsessed with getting a statue of his own there, he later became more respectful once he met the dog.
  • While Hachiko isn't a primary target of his, Garfield isn't above delivering a prank on him every once in a while. Much of the disdain is probably due to his loyalty aspects mimicking that of rival pet Odie.
  • Animal lovers everywhere have made a coordinated effort so that Hachiko does not end up anywhere near Cruella de Vil. The animal coat maker was interested creating coats of many iconic animals. Hachiko has become a primary target both for being an easy target and for being a famous canine. Such a pelting would be devastating to all who look up to him. As such, various people have volunteered to keep Cruella at bay.
  • Persona 3 team member Ken Adama is thankful for providing a loyal companion like Koromaru by his side. The kid has always liked animals, and the ascended members of his team invite him to visit the temple every once in a while.
  • While Snowy is Tintin's herald, the dog is allowed an honorary follower title from Hachiko. While usually mischievous, Snowy knows of his significance and attempts to be at his best behavior when entering.
  • It is true that Rainbow Dash represents Loyalty for the Mane Six. However, she was able to enter the Pantheon through other means. As such, the dog has her full blessing for representing Loyalty to not just companions but to friends in general.
  • Filia has given Hachiko similar approval as she represents those who set the needs of others before themselves. She herself was sad that for Hachiko's case, it meant his owner's life over his own. It helps that she's a fan of dogs in general.

  • Besides being a dog, Odie is Garfield's foil in more ways than one. The prominent difference is that Garfield isn't friendly all the time and Odie is very much a good-hearted idiot. Odie's tongue is sticking almost all the time and is reportedly very long. He is more often than not a victim of Garfield's pranks, but there have been a few instances of the dog getting back at Garfield. Despite all that's been described, Garfield isn't actually antagonistic towards Odie all the time.
  • Garfield learned about Odie coming to the Pantheon and decided to be involved with the event by having the ascension party held near a ledge. At first, people found it strange that the party would be at a place like that, though Pinkie Pie didn't fret too much over it. During the festivities, Garfield decided to show Odie the ledge and when the dog wasn't looking, Garfield kicked him from behind and sent Odie falling several feet to the ground. Odie wasn't seen for a few minutes, but came back without any injuries. Garfield felt that things in his Pantheonic routine weren't going to change that much now he's with Odie again.
  • Even with all of the abuse that he's suffered at Garfield's paws, Odie doesn't hold any real grudge against the orange tabby. There have been a some events where Odie offered a bit of payback towards Garfield for his mischief, but otherwise Odie is friendly towards him. Some deities have actually questioned this given how often Odie has been abused by Garfield and believes that Odie should be more proactive in getting even with the cat.
    • Amazingly, Odie already makes up for the abuse without even meaning it by regularly licking Garfield, something that annoys the cat to no end.
  • Animal lovers such as Bubbles and Fluttershy tend to visit Odie whenever he's by himself. He really enjoys their company and the animal lovers find him to be endearing despite the flaws that he has. Fluttershy and the other animal lovers find it strange that Garfield, a cat, abuses Odie whenever possible and are hoping that Garfield acts more friendly towards the dog more often as Odie seems to like Garfield most of the time despite what usually happens.
  • He had a meeting with Courage the Cowardly Dog after the latter had an unusual adventure in the Pantheon. Odie ended up heading to Courage's home, where he met the Bagges and witnessed what their dynamic was like with Courage. While Odie had no issue with Muriel, it was Eustace's treatment of Courage that Odie didn't like even as other crazy things happened around them. Whereas Garfield was willing to have some fun with Odie that doesn't involve abuse, Eustace often torments Courage and makes very little attempt, if at all, to get along with him and has other problematic vices on top of it. Odie personally finds it funny whenever Eustace gets some sort of humilation after Courage's adventures.
  • Odie and Pluto both like each other's company, being a pet dog that suffers comedic abuse one way or another. Even if they are dogs that have extremely limited speech capability, they have some level of awareness of the situation they're in. The two also do some activities together if their owners aren't around, with Pluto sometimes surprised at Odie's performance in a few instances.
    • Generally speaking, Odie is someone whom deities that have had a history of unfair and unjustified abuse like a lot. His ability to keep his chipper attitude, combined with willingness to get back at Garfield and pulling it off from time-to-time, are something that those deities like about the dog.
  • Despite Odie's default stupidity and general friendliness, even he has a problem with Napoleon. Odie's face gradually become more upset after learning from some of his canine friends about who Napoleon is and what he did to some puppies. On his end, Napoleon considers Odie to be more of an annoyance than anything important to deal with and is also frustrated at how Odie and Garfield don't make much of an effort to drive their owner Jon Arbuckle out after learning of a few instances of Garfield and Odie working together to humiliate Jon in some way. Odie's dislike of Napoleon is something that Garfield shares, even if the cat's reasons don't involve puppies.
  • Screwy Squirrel frequently enjoys using Odie as a target of mischief whenever the squirrel is bored. Given Odie's default level of intelligence, it's pretty easy for Screwy to make the canine off worse, similar to how Screwy often targeted a dog named Meathead. It's very similar to how Garfield abuses Odie and while it's still very cartoony, the slapstick tends to get more extreme than what Garfield can normally do.
  • While Odie has gone through plenty of abuse from Garfield, that abuse pales in comparison to some other deities such as Shou Tucker who have done horrific things to animals while attempting to provide an excuse no matter how flimsy it is for their actions. Odie actually shuddered a bit after hearing what happened to a pet dog that Shou used to own and later used for an experiment, especially since unlike what goes on between Garfield and Odie, Shou's situation is definitely no laughing matter.
  • Since there have been a few instances of Odie being smarter than normal, a few deities have wondered whether or not there's actually two separate Odies: the dumb Odie that many are familiar with, and the smart Odie that puts others off-guard when they see him. Most other deities prefer not to think too hard into it and the whole thing is more of a matter of if there's something happening that would justify Odie acting more than just a slobbering dog.
  • Many of the stranger accomplishments that he has had is likely the result of him not being aware of something. One really weird instance in the Pantheon involved a number of cars getting buried instead of bones. The House of Travel was confused after hearing about it, especially since Odie doesn't look like he has the strength to move cars into dirt as far as anyone is aware of. No one driving the cars as Odie buried seemed to have suffered severe damage, but they are rather annoyed about it.
  • Questions tend to arise from others as to what happened to his former owner Lyman. It could be argued that after Lyman went and took some job somewhere, Odie was adopted by Jon, but others who aren't aware of Lyman have argued that Odie was always Jon's dog. Given Odie's character, he's not too concerned with these questions...or even acknowledge the whole thing to begin with.
