  • Conflicting Opinion On: Lucifer
  • Odd Relationship With: Chuck Shurley
  • Before he fell, he was the most beautiful angel in Heaven, and God's most trusted lieutenant, as well as his favorite child. He was trusted so much by God that the latter bestowed upon Lucifer the Mark of Cain. That decision, however, had terrible repercussions, as when God created humanity and started paying more attention to them, Lucifer became jealous and bitter, and rebelled against God, with God eventually locking him in a Cage located in the darkest pits of Hell.
  • He was eventually freed from his Cage, and tried to bring on the Apocalypse, only to be imprisoned back in Cage again. However, he was soon able to escape from his Cage again, by possessing Castiel's vessel, after Castiel gave him permission to possess him in order to stop the Darkness. He has since been thrown out of Castiel's vessel, and was placed back in his "Nick" vessel, which had been reconstructed.
  • Upon his ascension, Death the Horseman came to him and told him exactly what would happen if Lucifer tried to bound Death to him again. Lucifer reluctantly agreed, although how much of his agreement he actually meant is up for debate.
  • Sam and Dean constantly try to avoid him, due to Sam being Lucifer’s one true vessel. Lucifer, for his part, is banned from the House of Emotion as a result of this, though he is trying his best to convince the Maintainers of Emotion that he isn't as bad as Sam and Dean say he is, and that he's not that bad of a guy. The Maintainers of Emotion luckily aren't buying it.
  • Castiel holds a major grudge against Lucifer, due to Lucifer killing him twice, as well Lucifer using Cas' vessel for causing chaos after Cas gave him permission to use it in fighting against the Darkness.
  • While Azazel, Ramiel, and Dagon all welcomed him with open arms, Asmodeus avoids him since he captured Lucifer in their universe, when the latter was lacking some of his grace. Lucifer promises to return the favor to Asmodeus when he gets the chance. Conversely, Crowley does his best to spite Lucifer whenever he gets the chance, with Lucifer making a point to cause trouble for Crowley too.
  • Despite his hatred for humans and demons alike, he ultimately despises Pagan Gods the most out of all of the residents in the Pantheon.
    "You know, I never understood you pagans. You're such...petty little things! Always fighting...always happy to sell out your own kind. No wonder you forfeited this planet to us! You are worse than humans. You're worse than demons. And yet you claim to be gods? And they call me prideful..."
  • His hatred of humans isn't just limited to heroes. He despises evildoers like Tarkin and Umbridge, due to their sadism and how sociopathic they are. At least he has some love for his siblings and father (though not as much as he has for himself); Umbridge and Tarkin represent what he sees in humanity; "broken, flawed abortions".
  • He also despises Voldemort, mostly due to Voldemort seeing himself as someone of Lucifer's caliber. But even he thinks that what Voldemort did to his own soul was nasty.
  • That being said, he gets along well with Teridax for a variety of reasons, such as sharing similar histories, and that Lucifer admires how Teridax was able to succeed in his plans, as well as how much of a Magnificent Bastard Teridax is. However, Lucifer may or may not realize that Teridax doesn't plan on making him an equal partner in his endeavors...
  • His views on humanity puts him directly at odds with the Doctor, due to their views on humanity being on completely opposite ends of the spectrum. Lucifer cannot just understand why someone like the Doctor would tolerate, let alone protect, humanity, while the Doctor swore to defend humanity from threats like Lucifer long ago. Though Lucifer doesn't know what the Doctor means by "an encounter near a Black Hole". On the other hand, his quarrel with the Doctor has brought him a new ally in the Master, who enjoys causing trouble for humanity, and similarly holds humans in low regard.
  • His opinion of the other Lucifer in the Pantheon is a conflicted one, as while they're both, well, Lucifer, he doesn't understand why the other one has such a fondness for humans, since this Lucifer's hatred of humans is well-known. However, both of them are opposed to YHVH, although for different reasons.
  • Quickly became allies with SCP-682 and Zamasu, due to the all of them sharing a "Humans Are Bastards" mentality. Lucifer also implies that he may have had a hand in SCP-682's creation.
  • Ever since he has found out that his father, Chuck Shurley, had managed to simultaneously ascend with him, the two of them have had an awkward reunion, given that the last time Chuck saw Lucifer, the latter has his ass handed to him by Amara. Not to mention that they also had an equally awkward heart-to-heart shortly before.

  • Opposed by/Opposes: William Stryker, Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa
  • Additional Relationships: Godot, Izuku Midoriya and the other heroic deities of My Hero Academia
  • Herald: Lola
  • Here is a little story from the past: A scientist by the name of Dr. Kamizono was a researcher at the Sumeragi Futures Institute of Technology’s S-FIT. Though their mission is to revolutionize energy, the sinister practice of live experimentation on Adepts thrived beneath the surface. Kamizono disapproved of such practices, but that ultimately came down to Sumeragi helping create more and more of these “monsters”. Soon one fateful day he along with many other researchers are all killed by one of their experimentees, a young boy that commanded electricity, who disappeared into the unknown while Sumeragi wasted no time in burying the incident and taking his research to further their goals. Dr. Kamizono has two children, an older boy and a younger girl, and the former would go on to pick up the pieces left behind his late father. Believing Sumeragi actually silenced his father to take the research the kid came to the conclusion he would have to take matters into his own hands. This boy’s name is Copen Kamizono and he fights to rid the world of every last Adept.
  • The removal of one of Amon’s titles was swift and efficient. Onlookers around the House of Philosophy could only toward a 14 year old kid clad in white and red dashing from building to building before disappearing without a trace. Later that evening reports popped across the different Houses of both Sumeragi and Eden’s hits. All shared the distinction of a white and crimson blur blasting through the air and eliminating their personnel and driving away their bosses through laser weaponry and abilities replicated from the higher ups. There was no mistaking it, Copen has ascended to the Pantheon.
    Copen: "Sumeragi and Eden. The fact that both of you walk in the land of the living once more is another crime in of itself. But you won't evade me, or your coming judgement."
  • Though only a normal boy his genius in technology and engineering allows to keep up and even surpass the strengths of the mystical Adepts. Preferring unrelenting attacks and quick speed he arms himself with Border Mk II, a gun from his late father that once shot anti-Septima bullets but has since switched to lasers. Copen doesn’t slack on defense, however. In addition to the many subroutines he installs on White Tiger armor Copen can quickly Bullit Dash into things to tag them for his lasers and can even take to the skies with his Rocket Boots. Plus, through analyzing an Adept’s Septisome Copen can replicate their former owner’s powers. This was how he was able to copy the Azure Striker’s mainstay of defense: Prevasion, and this would only be the tip of the iceberg to his arsenal.
    • Abilities copied from Adepts’ Septimas take the form of EX Weapons and are manned by many different drones that surround Copen called Bits, all of them managed by a spunky Robot Buddy named Lola. From Power Grab and Gorgon Gaze to Hailstorm Blade and Hydro Zapper. While EX Weapons are inactive the Bits also function as a shield known as Flashfield, another barrier against attacks coming his way. With this in mind Copen is able to juggle both offense and defense and is a force to be reckoned with though he does hold back on using EX Weapons so as to not overly reliant on them and be defeated. Really piss him off and you'll get another story, as GV can attest to. Guilt Sequence and Doppler Destroyer are good enough proof of that.
  • Speaking of, Copen can be looked at as Gunvolt’s opposite in almost every way. Copen is a Muggle who fights with technological genius clad in white and red, while GV is an Adept who fights with his granted powers and is instead dominantly clad in blue and black. Further highlighting this is the respective Tiger Versus Dragon and demon and angel symbolism between the two and with Copen originally hauling heavier armor, complete with a shield doubling as a ballista. In short, Copen was durable while GV was more nimble.
  • Being a young scientist he frequents the House of Technology to further hone his craft, though he's very careful not to diverge any of his technology publicly so as they don't get misused much like with his late father's research. It is disappointing enough that there are all too many in the field of science who like to abuse it for personal gain such as Professor Hojo, Bonedrewd, and Ryoma Sengoku. Its for that reason he agrees with Arthur Maxson and the Brotherhood of Steel's overall doctrine, though he does balk at the Brotherhood's use of a Humongous Mecha and its ability to throw nuke-like ordinances. In a post-apocalyptic world. Where everthing was bombed to hell.
    Lola: "Geez, boss. Don't sugarcoat it or anything."
    • Roboticists on the side of evil also gets on his nerves, considering who his partner is and everything and having fought an Adept with "the self-absorbed delusions of an infant" that brought an entire factory's worth of machines to life. Eggman and Wily in particular are the kind of people who fit that description like the glove. Copen and Lola hates the latter's guts more mainly for being behind the Roboenza Virus. Even if he left behind enough cures for a whole population, that hasn't excused... practically everything else he has done. If he's conducting his business but is not hunting down Adepts and other superhumans then it is likely he's trying to thwart their plots.
  • When working on research late in the Pantheon's nights he takes trips down to the House of Food. Specifically, he goes down to get some coffee and prefers it black. It's practically a favorite of his, and pretty indicative of his personality despite being so young he's wise beyond his years, even if he's quite stubborn. Here, he prefers to keep a low profile in this downtime and doesn't usually try to stick around longer than he needs to. Though he does consistently talk to Godot due to a shared love for coffee, anyways. Sure, the coffee-themed koans are quite odd and overall illogical, but the prosecutor makes for a good conversationalist anyways.
  • As the Pantheon is a much more forgiving place Copen has been put under a lot of scrutiny for his goals when it comes to pulling a Final Solution on Adepts. While there is never any doubt it is an extreme solution the state of his world and actions of organizations like Eden is glaring, so it is not like he has no ground to stand on. One of the things that stopped people from being seeing him as bad as both Sumeragi and Eden is the fact he mainly reserves his wrath towards villains and other vagabonds, though make no mistake he won’t hesitate on attacking people like GV if they get in his way. The other reason is that with the revelation that his sister, Mytyl, is an Adept herself Copen’s resolve in his cause is noticeably shaken even as he left her and the Kamizono family to continue on fighting. Then again, staying around after decapitating Eden's leadership would have dire consequences anyways. He's way too deep into his crusade for there not to have any collateral damage.
    • In any case, Charles Xavier along with the X-Men and other mutants have collectively deemed Copen their enemy for his stance against superhuman beings as a whole, not all too different from the regular humans who have their prejudices against them. Many are also weary of his ability to copy Septimas and it wouldn't be unreasonable to assume Copen would be able to do the same to their mutations if given time and the chance.
    • And speaking of mutant-hating humans, Copen and William Stryker have an interesting relationship. Though the two of them share many simalirites ranging from beliefs (in more ways than one to an extent) Copen is disturbed that he was willing to both kill his own son for being a mutant and his wife for given birth to said mutant... in some instances at least. Regardless, family is something that means a lot to Copen. It's the reason he took up fighting Adepts in the first place and the reason why he had a crisis of faith as stated earlier. One severe enough to fake his death, discard the Kamizono name, and leave his sister to live a life without him in the picture when earlier she was just in the dark of it all. William, meanwhile, most of the time finds his lack of ability to steel his convictions disgraceful.
    • Being a well known team of Cape Busters, Copen has worked with the Boys here and there. Although we would be lying if there wasn't any vitriol tossed back and forth given Copen's extreme ideals when it comes to superhumans as a whole considering his claims of wanting to rid the world of superhumans period. It's quite in line with Billy Butcher tried to do, even extending it to his teammates in the mortal world. Though even with that similarity he and Copen can hardly be called likeminded. Copen doesn't take any pleasure in what he does unlike Butcher and the revelation regarding his sister had him cast genuine doubts on what he preaches.
    • Being nearly undaunted in the idea that regular and Differently Powered Individuals are unable to coexist he is then unable to comprehend the state of the society deities from My Hero Academia are from. And thinking about it more ultimately leads him to be frustrated in the end, especially when it is about the disparity between there and Copen's world. On the other side of the coin many are wary of Copen as his use of Depleted Phlebotinum Shells and Power Grab are all too reminiscent of not only All for One but also bullets that are able to de-Quirk people. But as it is with Copen his beef is mainly with its villains, though he's a dangerous person to come across all the same.
  • At some point different people have made comparisons between him and Masato Kusaka, mainly for the fact that both are not only rivals to the heroes of their respective but also carrying that drive to wipe out anyone they don't deem human. Copen and Lola consider the comparisons offensive. While the former won't necessarily deny them (Copen himself internally admitted he is a demon bent on revenge), he would like to make the distinction that he is definitely not a Yandere who is perfectly willing to manipulate the targeted interest's friends into infighting so he could have them all for himself. On Masato's end he finds the way Copen goes about his business with Adepts intriguing and is starting to have some similar thoughts when it comes to the Pantheon's population of kaijin. As if his existing Fantastic Racism for them wasn't enough.
    Lola: "A jerk and a creep. Ugh!"
    Copen: "What a winning combination."
  • If you're still wondering: He and Amon, the former holder of Muggle Power, don't like each other by the way. Though the both have a shared hatred against their respective universe's powers, citing them as the cause of everything wrong and awful, came to that conclusion thanks to their fathers, and are both hypocritical in some way or another they are still very different. How they came to hate powers is as different as night and day with Copen doing so out of a love for his father and desire to avenge him while Amon was abused by his instead. The same can be said with how they deal with the problem with Copen wanting to kill anyone with a Septima and does the dirty business on his own while Amon took to debending people and building an following after it. In addition, both don't shy away at calling each other's hypocrisy whether its with Copen using the Adepts powers against them and ditching his sister as opposed to killing her like he always said or Amon being a Bender himself (and an incredibly capable one at that).
  • Don't let that cold demeanor fool you. Even in his line of work he's quite the Deadpan Snarker himself, one that matches Gunvolt. And when the situation calls he can also be The Comically Serious. For example, he was quite through with Ghauri's atrocious rhymes, enough so that he was actually losing focus during their rematch. And he didn't even hesitate on pressing Gibril's Berserk Button repeatedly after finding what it was. In addition, his indistinct religiousness leads to Copen also being a bit of a prude if you can believe it. He was pretty stingy on what his sister is consuming in terms of reading material, and wasn't on board with the idea of her using perfume as that's more for older girls.
  • There are times, however, in which Copen is a lot more mellow in his actions and attitude. He’s less of a Deadpan Snarker, preferring a more quiet and even respectful outlook towards his enemies and all the talk about God along with his Fantastic Racism for the Adepts and those empowered like them is oddly absent. This can be attributed to the journey where he took on the now Adept-backed Sumeragi Institute of Human Evolution where he went by the moniker of "iX". In other words, the journey involving the timeline in which Gunvolt and Joule were both killed by Asimov who then went on to usurp Sumeragi in the power vacuum from Nova’s demise and Take Over the World as Demerzel. His reign of terror would last for a century, and Copen was forced to become a cyborg to continue fighting. His new temperament here makes it all the more ironic, especially so since he now genuinely mourns Gunvolt and Joule’s death since practically every encounter with the former ended with Copen trying to murder him. Instead, he reserved every ounce of his Tranquil Fury towards Asimov. For Gunvolt and Joule's deaths at his hands, for Mytyl’s suffering as the Butterfly Effect, and for this living nightmare of a world where Adepts are heavily surveyed and forced to join in on killing the rest of humanity.
    • As a result many gods and goddesses note Copen is much easier to work with in this state of mind whereas he usually would of attacked someone with powers whether they were good or evil and would only relent if the situation proved really dire such as when an airship nearly crashed into a skyscraper. It is a bit hard to believe, and may give people some whiplash comparing the normal Copen to iX but few are willing to object having someone like that on their side for a change. Various heroic deities from My Hero Academia have come across iX by chance who was more than willing to help them out and even get along with them, though Copen perhaps gets along with Izuku Midoriya the best possibly because he used to be a Quirkless person himself. To Copen, he's reminded of an Adept who was not born with a Septima named "Blade", though the circumstances are much more tragic in their case, even if they were freed and even inspired to keep going by Copen in the end. Izuku and his allies silently hope this change of heart can be brought out more often.
  • "I'll keep fighting until the day the last Adept falls."

Lesser Gods

    Anti-Mage 
Anti-Mage, God of Magic Haters (Anti-Fun, BurNIng, Magina)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Anti-Mage_654.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: Mana Void with Manta Style crossed infront of it.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Taking reduced damage from magic, considering magic inherently vile and all its users evil, being nameless, having a taste for talking in a different way, having a title that perfectly describe his occupation, life, mission and powers, being an extremist with understandable intentions, teleporting in the blink of an eye, burning his enemy's mana with his attacks.
  • Domains: Combat, Anti-Magic, War, Profession.
  • High Priest: Magebane.
  • Followers: Mage killers and hunters in general.
  • Allies: Omniknight, Silencer, Amon, Ange, Brightwing, Tracer
  • Rivals: The Champions of Runeterra, Touma Kamijou, Illidan Stormrage.
  • Enemies: Terrorblade, Lion, Carl the Invoker and GUAE Malum Magia.
  • Teethclenched Teamwork: Good-aligned Mages and Sven
  • Immediately following Anti-Mage's ascension, because of his mission to end magic by killing all users of magic, he was banned from being even five miles near the House of Magic. Anti-Mage is still grumbling about that.
  • A common misconception is that Anti-Mage has two twin brothers. These "twins" are actually illusions created out of nowhere with Anti-Mage's favorite weapon, Manta Style. Though they're not as powerful, they're still dangerous against mages as they can burn mana just like the real Anti-Mage.
  • Anti-Mage is often quick to inform confused gods that his powers are the result of "Purity of Will", not magic.
  • Despite his nickname and reputation, Anti-Mage doesn't truly hate fun, as he has been known to laugh heartily and loudly from time to time (and not necessarily while he's in the middle of killing mages). It's just that mages from the battlefield of the ancients consider spellcasting fun. Anti-Mage, being who he is, occasionally comes around to ruin these mages' fun, thus earning him his nickname.
  • Once upon a time, Anti-Mage decided to be a hard carry when he's normally just a midgame carry. Sven shut him down. Anti-Mage still bears a grudge toward him for that day. The rumors that Sven has a relationship with a mage doesn't help.
    • And ever since that day, merely listening to that kind of Training Montage music is enough to drive Anti-Mage nuts and try to get out of the vicinity until he can't listen to that song anymore, if he's not wrecking the music source already.
  • Nortrom the Silencer is probably the one "spellcaster" that Anti-Mage don't mind, since he's technically not using magic and his spells are primarily anti-magic in nature.
  • Although he's not a major threat normally, this changes dramatically if he manages to get farmed, as accurately illustrated by this comic.
  • The phrase "Friendship is Magic" is a huge Berserk Button for Anti-Mage. If you're lucky, he will just rant about foul sorcery and shout "EVIL is Magic" in the place of commas. If you're unlucky, you will find yourself with no mana for weeks.
  • Anti-Mage used to be a Night Elf once. Ironic, considering that magic is the reason why the Night Elves exist in the first place. While he doesn't appear to remember his past, Anti-Mage admits to faintly recalling some strange memories when he learned of the ascension of the Night Elf, Malfurion Stormrage. Malfurion himself cause some worry in Anti-Mage however, for some of the memories shows a familiar looking figure as his father. He was also shocked to hear that Malfurion fought in the battlefield of the ancients in the past, before passing the mantle to a different hero.
    • Eventually Anti-Mage found out that he has similar fighting style with Malfurion's brother, Illidan. While after a bout of pure fighting made them consider each other Worthy Opponent, Anti-Mage can't help but wonder if Illidan's eye situation was yet another result of the evils of magic.
  • He had an actual name once, Magina. He probably chose to discard it for obvious reasons.
  • Anti-Mage was also once brothers with Terrorblade, as Malfurion can attest to. However, neither Anti-Mage or Terrorblade does not remember this. Not that it stopped them from being influenced into being hostile against each other.
  • Has a weird relationship with Touma Kamijou, with Anti-Mage acknowledging that his technique of punching mages are stuffs of legends. Except that Anti-Mage has been telling him that there are more ways than punching mages to counter them. Depriving them from their power source is one example.
    • He also has great respect on Kiritsugu Emiya, the well-reknown Magus Killer, as he admires some of his 'pragmatic' ways to kill off mages.
  • To him, benders are mages under a different name, and for that reason has chosen to work together with Amon. As Anti-Mage is unaware of Amon's secret, he mistakes his power to de-bend for an exotic form of "Purity of Will".
  • When news of GUAE Malum Magia's creation made its way to Anti-Mage's attention, Anti-Mage reluctantly decided that he might have to side with the "lesser evil" this time around if he wants to bring the entire GUAE division down.
  • "The magic ends here."
    • Though some can misread it as "The fun ends here."

Demigods

    Calvin Candie and Stephen 
Calvin J. Candie and Stephen, Gods of Slavery and Racism Among Humans (Monsieur Candie)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/django_unchained_stephen_and_candie.jpg
Candie (right) with Stephen
  • Demigods
  • Symbol: A cotton plant and a phrenology chart
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: (Both) Slave-Owning, Evil Pairs; (Candie) Acting like a gentleman to people he likes (read: fellow white people), Love of French Culture, Being less educated that he lets on, Plantation Owner, Phrenology and Race Science; (Stephen) Racism towards his own race, Being the real brains behind the pair, Embracing his role as a slave and using it against other slaves, Loyalty to his master
  • Domains: Evil, Hatred, Racism, Slavery
  • Allies: Candie is allied with his BEAUTIFUL SISTER and the rest of the staff of Candyland. Other known allies include Uncle Ruckus and Gleeman Vox. Candie is rumored to have a business relationship with Willie Wonka, but nothing that can be proven.
  • Enemies: EVERY SINGLE LAST BLACK OR EX-SLAVE MEMBER OF THE PANTHEON, but especially Samuel L. Jackson and Jules Winnfield. Captain Jack Sparrow isn't too fond of them either and The Basterds hate them too.
  • Upon arrival in the Pantheon, Candie erected his "Candyland" cotton plantation. Despite the protest from countless gods, Candyland continues to be profitable thanks to the patronage of Nazi and Neo-Nazi gods.
  • Stephen, though he plays the fool in public, is much more cunning and arguably even worse than Candie. Though he never steps out of line, Stephen terrorizes his fellow slaves, often overseeing their torture, execution, and even sale if they cross him or Candie. He is the brains of Candie's operations and keeps a careful eye on all of Candie's allies and business partners, especially after the last time someone tried to negotiate with Candie. He gets along great with Uncle Ruckus, though.
  • Although the Red Skull and other Nazi members of the Pantheon quietly approve of Candie's methods, Candie is wary of them. When asked why, he simply responded, "I've had bad experience with Germans..." No one has pressed him further. Plus he and Stephen find their plans to exterminate lesser races less efficient and fun than simply enslaving them.
  • Despite Twilight Sparkle's warnings and insistence that it isn't the kind of place she thinks it is, Pinkie Pie has expressed interest in visiting Candyland upon learning of its existence.
  • Although all black gods and goddesses hate Candie and Stephen with a burning passion, Stephen has a particularly fierce enemy in Samuel L. Jackson. This rivalry was especially awkward when Jackson was chosen to serve as Stephen's herald.
  • Candie is a major Francophile and prefers to be addressed as Monsieur Candie. However, as he doesn't speak a word of French, he hates it when people speak to him in French as it makes him feel embarrassed. If, God forbid, you make this mistake, he is liable to bash your skull in with a hammer or feed you to his dogs.
  • Candie frequently petitions the House of Combat to add a God of Mandingo Fighting to their ranks. Thus far, these petitions have been ignored.
  • Candie is also a fan of Death Battle and frequently asks Wiz and Boomstick to include his Mandingo fighting slaves in a future bout.
  • Interestingly, Candie and Stephen are perfectly fine with the non-human members of the Pantheon, so long as they don't mess with their "livelihood". They are racists of the human kind, not Fantastic Racists.
  • Opposed by the House of Justice, but they begrudgingly admit that Candie and Stephen technically haven't done anything illegal.
  • Candie once tried to join the House of Knowledge as the "God of Phrenology". He was promptly and harshly refused.
  • Candie once tried to flirt with Charlotte Dunois. She was charmed by his demeanor at first, but when he invited her over for "Mandingo Fighting" she became furiously disgusted and proceeded to deliver a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown with her IS with a barrage of French cursing (none of which Candie understood).
    • Likewise, a similar attempt to strike up a friendship with fellow Southern Gentleman Remy LeBeau end with a staff to the nards and several exploding playing cards in his face.
  • One of the few gods Candie would actually consider a friend is Gleeman Vox, thanks to their shared interests in gladiatorial combat, forced servitude, and lack of scruples. Candyland is one of DreadZone's biggest sponsors, and Candie often has his Mandingo slaves participate in the show. In return, Vox provides Candie with new slaves and explosive collars to keep them in line. Stephen, for his part, considers Vox to be reckless and a potential liability, and keeps a careful eye on the alien's dealings with Candie.
  • Despite being racist, slave-owning arseholes, they are notably intimidated by Davros, considering him to be a destructive and trigger-happy maniac.

  • Edward "Eddie" Valiant is a private detective and former policeman, who ended up being involved with the plot framing Roger Rabbit for the murder of Marvin Acme. A gruff and cynical man after his brother Teddy Valiant was killed, he ends up working with Roger and becomes less cynical over time. Eventually they discover the true villain, and stop Judge Doom from trying to destroy Toon Town.
  • Considered a hero by most toons, even some of the evil ones, for stopping Judge Doom's plan to destroy Toon Town and its toons with the Dip. Given the Dip literally erases toons, it's easy to see why. Eddie was interested to learn how just how many toons were introduced since 1947, and is wondering how anime fits into it. And he was horrified to learn that despite having every reason to think Judge Doom no longer exists, the Trope Pantheon brought him back.
  • Though an ally of toons, he had an issue with them because one toon killed his brother by dropping a piano on him. Of course even then he got along with Roger Rabbit and had toon friends. SCP-1171-1 of all deities found this strange, not getting that he has human friends despite being racist towards them. Then again, he's also in denial about his own prejudices, so he may just not want to see the comparison.
  • Prejudice might be something expected from the House of Hatred, particularly Categorism, but it is not a house Eddie enjoys being in(despite being the house he belongs in). He's not a really hateful figure, just jaded, and doesn't want to be near his most hated enemy of Judge Doom. It's safe to say he doesn't like the Red Skull given he's a die-hard Nazi and WWII ended just a couple years before the events of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Gihren Zabi too, since he's A Nazi by Any Other Name.
  • Was somewhat of an alcoholic before he became less of a sourpuss, but has stopped drinking. Instead he picks non-alcoholic beverages in bars and makes conversation. He gets why Drinky Cow and Captain Haddock down what they do, and wants to encourage them to not let the bottle consume them.
  • Employed by the House of Justice due to his job as a detective, even if he isn't an official member of the house. He gets along with the non-evil detectives, particularly Royotaro Dojima since he can sympathize with missing that one case. Also gets along with Jim Gordon, Bruce Wayne and John Hartigan, the last one for dealing with a rather cynical world while keeping his morality intact.
  • Initially spooked out by Doc Brown since he looks like Judge Doom and was somewhat wacky, but he soon realized they were different people. For starters Judge Doom's human disguise has an Uncanny Valley effect that he was able to pick on. Doc Brown hates Judge Doom too, and Doc was a generally friendly individual who got along with Eddie.
  • His father was a Barnum and Bailey circus clown, which surprised a lot of the people in the pantheon. Eddie pointed out that he still has some humor in him, who do you think taught him? Because of the love he has for his father he feels evil clowns bring shame on the industry, especially ones who actually did perform as clowns like the Jokernote  and Adam McIntrye.
  • While he doesn't much care for fast food, Eddie has some fondness for Ronald McDonald as he's an honest clown like his father, and trying to improve their image. Eddie also gets along with Krusty, even if he's much more bitter and cynical. Then again, he's a cynical fellow himself. Though they're more seen together in a tavern than anywhere else, though he picks the non-alcoholic drinks.
