    Flash Thompson/Agent Venom 
Eugene "Flash" Thompson, God of Character Development (Colonel Thompson, Agent Venom, Venom IV, Anti-Venom)
His appearance after joining the Guardians of the Galaxy. 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A Stylized White Spider.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, Chaotic Evil when Venom takes over.
  • Portfolio
  • Domains: Military, Superheroes, Haddicapped,
  • Allies: The Venom Symbiote, Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Steve Rogers/Captain America, Martin Walker, Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman, Gwen Stacy
  • Enemies: Wade Wilson/Deadpool, Wilhelm Strasse, Felicia Hardy/Black Cat.
  • Not to be confused with: Barry Allen/The Flash, Flash Gordon
  • Was ascended after Captain America and Spider-Man put in some good words and pointed out how much he's grown over his career.
  • Due to the Venom Symbiote's potential danger, and the fact that he was an outstanding solider, Martin Walker put Flash into The AOF the minute of his ascension.
  • Flash proved his worth by singlehandedly saving Walker and Captain America from Wilhelm Strasse, who is now obsessed with obtaining the Venom Symbiote.
  • Flash has made it very clear that he refuses to ally with any members of his former Thunderbolts team, and as far as he is concerned, they are villains that need to be stopped.
  • Flash and Peter Parker met with each other in order to explain that Otto Octavius, not Peter, was the one that betrayed Flash.
  • Flash admires Superman, as he reminds him a lot of Peter. Unlike most, he prefers to talk to him as Clark Kent and not as Superman.
  • In the comics, he eventually lost the Symbiote. Flash fears that Eddie Brock ascends to take it back in the Pantheon as well.
  • When overhearing fellow deities outside the Marvel Universe or the AOF mention the name "Flash", it takes him a bit of context to figure out whether they're talking about him or Barry Allen AKA The Flash, whose heroics are much more famous than his. However, thanks to his time around Peter, he holds no animosity for the Fastest Man Alive, although they haven't met yet.
    • He also learned that certain spacefaring deities might be talking about Flash Gordon, who he also respects if only because of the Queen song.
  • At one point he ended up dating Felicia Hardy, but he broke up with her after learning about her criminal identity as the Black Cat.
  • Has resumed his friendship with high school classmate Gwen Stacy following her ascension. Spider-Gwen, on the other hand, he prefers to avoid given she took on the Venom mantle in the comics.

    Pannacotta Fugo 
Pannacotta Fugo, God of Temporary Departures (Cheese Boy)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Stand, Purple Haze
  • Theme Song: "Virus", his theme from the anime (Alternatively,"Faith in Truth", his theme from All Star Battle, or his theme from Eyes of Heaven)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (was briefly True Neutral)
  • Portfolio: A good person with terrifying powers, written out of the story, leaving the group to save his own skin, The Smart Guy, Neat Freak, being Enraged by Idiocy
  • Domains: Poison, Loyalty, Crime
  • High Priest: Launch
  • Followers: Bubba, Twist, Elora, Sparky, Ms. Bellum, Herb Simpson, Uncle Max, Dulcy the Dragon
  • Allies: Giorno Giovanna, Jean-Pierre Polnareff, Coco, Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin
  • Enemies: Diavolo, Lesale Deathbringer, Bloody Mary, Nurgle, Typhus
  • Additional Relationship: Bruno Buccellati
  • Ascended after learning to control the powers of his Stand and evolving it, as well as returning to the Passione Mafia, all while swearing loyalty to Giorno once more. Some people have heard that He personally fought and won against Gold Experience Requiem to regain Giorno's trust, though they have yet to be proven true or false.
  • Giorno and Polnareff were happy to see one of their teammates make it to the Pantheon. Bruno, however, was a different story. While he's happy that Fugo went back to the mafia under Giorno's leadership, he still can't forgive him for ditching them at the time they needed him the most.
  • His Stand, Purple Haze, has bulbs on its hands, each of which contains a dangerous virus. When a bulb is broken or shot, the virus inside it is released and infects anyone, friend or foe, within its range. Anyone infected by the virus will vaporize in a matter of seconds. The overwhelming power of Purple Haze was enough that it was rumored it was why the powers that be wrote Fugo out of the story.
    • In dire situations, it will turn into its evolved form, Purple Haze Distortion, which, in addition to having an even deadlier virus, has the ability to eat and store other viruses for Fugo and his allies to use.
  • While Fugo's Stand is a threat to others, he himself is not immune to its powers. As of late, he's been seen with Coco, trying to make Purple Haze safer for himself.
  • Was hired by several members of the House of School to teach math, but was quickly fired after they found out what he did in response to wrong answers.
    "You goddamn punk! Are you trying to mess with me!? How many times do I have to tell you something before it sinks into your thick skull?! You said that 6 times 5 is 30, so why the hell would your answer be less than 30?! YOU COMPLETE IDIOT!"
  • There have been rumors that Fugo was actually a spy of Diavolo, sent to kill one of Buccellati's teammates. Fugo has profusely denied these claims.
  • His outfit has often been criticized, much to his chagrin. Despite all the mockery, he continues to wear the same kinds of clothes.
    Joel: "'I'm going to wear a strawberry tie, and I'm just going to dress up like shit.'"
  • Has earned the hatred of Bloody Mary, who heard of what he did to the last person he fought who had mirror powers.
  • While he does torture dance every now and then against his incapacitated enemies, he says it's not the same without Mista and Narancia. He awaits the day they ascend so he can apologize for not getting on the boat (as well as the three of them doing the torture dance like old times).

Lesser Gods

    Donkey Kong Jr. 
Donkey Kong Jr., God of Characters that Vanished Without Explanation (DK Jr., Donkey Jr., Junior)
Render by Nibroc-Rock on DeviantArt
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His white singlet with the initials "J"
  • Theme Song: Donkey Kong Jr. Main theme and Donkey Kong / Donkey Kong Jr. Medley
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good, sometimes Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Conjoined Eyes, Cowardly Lion, The Dragon to his father, Kid Hero, Mighty Glacier
  • Domains: Primates, Climbing, Sons, Fathers, Rescuing, Kidnapping
  • Herald: Stanley the Bugman
  • High Priest: Chuck Cunningham
  • Followers: Tooty, Gopher, Roxanne, Launch
  • Allies: Cranky Kong (His father), Donkey Kong (Related, but it's a long story), Diddy Kong (Also Friendly Rivals), Dixie Kong, Mario, Mr. Game and Watch, Luigi, Princess Peach, Tarzan, Mowgli, George of the Jungle, Caesar, Winston, Mighty the Armadillo
  • Enemies: King K. Rool, Lord Fredrik, Baldi, Mordremoth, Mojo Jojo, Koba
  • Respects: King Kong
  • Donkey Kong Jr. was introduced as Donkey Kong's son, who embarked on a mission to save his father after Mario imprisoned him, although not without a good reason for doing so. DK Jr. managed to best Mario and save his dad, later proceeding to aid him in causing mischief as his right hand man. Eventually he started going go-karting and playing tennis with Mario and his friends, until Junior went completely missing for decades, only making small cameos ever since. Not helped is the fact that his father went on to have his own adventure unrelated to Mario, and Junior's absence was even more noticeable, until one day he suddenly showed up in the Pantheon without any notice, acting as if nothing happened. Given DK Jr.'s long absence and the fact that the Court of Gods have no idea who Chuck Cunningham even is (the records they possess are borderline non-existant) the position of Vanished Characters was given to Donkey Kong Junior.
  • The first thing that needs to be addressed about Junior considering his relation to the Kongs is that he is actually the son of the original Donkey Kong, A.K.A. Cranky Kong. The version we know as Donkey Kong is stated to be Cranky's grandson, making Junior his father by default, but then there were other claims that Cranky is actually Donkey Kong's father, meaning both DK and DK Jr. are the same person. Neither theory has been actually confirmed, not helped that Junior is in the form of a toddler, complicating things even more.
  • Confusions aside, the Kongs welcome Junior as one of their own and are happy to see him again after his long absence. His father usually leaves Donkey Kong to take care of him as a little brother of sorts since he is gotten too old to bother with Junior's antics and so most of the time DK is hanging out with him. Diddy Kong and Junior didn't start on the best of terms but they eventually became inseparable, many noting that both are quite similar and there are some behind the scenes reasons why Diddy took Junior's place, but the Kong doesn't mind. He even introduced him to Dixie, who at first was confused that there was another DK but she nevertheless accepted him as a friend.
    • Unfortunately, his family reunion brought an uninvited guest. King K. Rool, another notable character from the franchise that went missing without any reason showed up with his Kremling army to kidnap all the Kongs he could. Luckily he didn't know about the existance of Junior, which gave the Kongs the edge to best the Kremlings and drive the away. After that, Junior was lauded by the Kongs for helping them defeat their sworn enemies and invited him to eat all the bananas he could, making the gorilla toddler beyond happy.
  • Contrary to what many believe, Junior did actually have another game where he was the protagonist. Donkey Kong Jr. Math was the follow up to his adventure, where he was tasked with climbing vines to answer the question his father was holding in a sign, notable for being the only Edutainment Game in the NES. That alone is what got him to meet Baldi, the quirky teacher approached Junior to see if he would be able to do the same with his notebooks but like many others, Junior ultimately was tricked into answering the unanswerable question wrong and had to escape Baldi's wrath. Good thing he knows how to climb, which allowed him to completely avoid the crazed professor and seek help elsewhere.
  • Good friends with Mr. Game and Watch, after all he was one of the few people that gave him sanctuary before Junior completely dissapeared, also help that Game and Wath and Cranky like reminisce of the good old games of gaming and hold Junior as a good example of what has been lost in the new generation.
  • Believe it or not, Junior got to debut in Mario related sports game before his own father, first in Super Mario Kart and going to participate in most Tennis tournaments until he was replaced by Diddy Kong. Even though he started on the wrong foot with Mario they eventually buried the hatchet and became good friends, even befriending other of his close friends like his brother Luigi or Princess Peach.
  • Usually frequents the House of Beast, looking for places to relax. He is good friends with the likes of Tarzan, Mowgli and George of the Jungle thanks to their ties with nature, Tarzan even being raised by a family of Gorillas before.
    • That said, one time Junior got in trouble because his tendency to climb vines and frequent jungles got him into trouble with elder dragon Mordremoth, the Kong having entered his house by accident and managing to set the dragon off. Fortunately he was rescued by Tarzan in a timely manner before anything bad happened and so he has stayed far away from Mordremoth ever since.
  • As the biggest primate on the Pantheon and also the one his father and most of the the other Kongs took inspiration from, Junior has nothing but respect for King Kong. He wishes that when he finally grows up he becomes as gigantic and he is.
  • Curious about other primate deities in the pantheon, Junior set out to meet them and see if they were any diffrent from the Kongs he knew. He became friends with Caesar and Winston who are a lot more serious than him and the Kong Crew but they appreciate him as an unconventional ally and are very curious about his peculiar situation regarding his canonicity. Both have warned him to stay far away from primates like Mojo Jojo or Koba because they are nothing but trouble.
  • In a strange case of Odd Friendship Junior and Mighty the Armadillo bonded over being two characters that were forgotten as time went on. Junior hopes that, like Mighty, he gets a chance to return in the future.

    George and Karl 
George and Karl, Divine Duo of Ascended Extras (George: George the Fallen | Karl: Karl the Lost, Karl the Savior)
Karl and George in the Catacombs
George the Fallen 
Karl the Lost 
Karl and George reunited 
  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: The Silver Hand logo and a couple of Vine Cleavers
  • Alignment: Lawful Good with shades of Neutral Good (George briefly became Chaotic Neutral with some Neutral Evil leanings while in the League of E.V.I.L.)
  • Portfolio: No Sense of Direction, Sequential Boss, Switch-Out Move, Zerg Rush, Tag Team
  • Domains: Friendship, Direction, Characterization, Morality, Paladins
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: The League of E.V.I.L. (Particularly Rafaam and King Togwaggle), Galakrond, Mordremoth, the Dungeon Keeper
  • Oppose: The House of Prehistoric Beasts
  • George and Karl are two Silver Hand recruits whose origins are very easily missed. The two got lost in Un'Goro Crater following a expedition gone wrong and somehow wound up entering the Kobold Catacombs where they would encounter several monsters and adventurers. The two got separated and believing that his friend was dead, George fell into despair and wanted revenge so he joined the League of E.V.I.L. on a misguided attempt to avenge the death of Karl. However, Karl was very much alive and found wandering the desert of Uldum by the League of Explorers, looking for George. The two would reunite in Dalaran, this time as enemies, but Karl's determination to help his friend would make George realize the errors of his way and join the good guys once more.
  • The two got into the pantheon after, you guessed it, getting lost. Following the defeat of Rafaam and Galakrond, Karl suggested going for a drink at Bob's bar but somehow entered a different Inn and found themselves in the pantheon. By recommendation from the Inkeeper, the two were given a position of Ascended Extra given their rather innocuous origin.
  • George is ashamed of his time as an enforcer of the League of E.V.I.L. and helping revive Galakrond, which is why he wants to set things right by opposing both the League and the Ur-Dragon and have Karl alongside him. Both even ended up requesting to join the GUAG Sacred Knights in order to prove their worthiness and Artix von Krieger found them a bit of a goofball duo but nonetheless can feel that they are up to the task....provided they don't get lost again in the Pantheon.
  • George and Karl are notoriously bad at directions, Karl mostly. Many are amazed at how they managed to survive Un'goro Crater on their own and somehow end up in the Kobold Catacombs. The two decided to explore the Pantheon to get to know the place but somehow ended up choosing the worst people as guides. Given that they needed a healer and another group of adventurers willing to help them out, they first encountered the kind Celica Mercury, who was happy to help them as their White Mage but the two never realized she is even worse than Karl at following directions. Then somehow came accross the Heroes of Luxendarc and one of their members, Agnes to be exact, pointed them out at where she thought was the location of the Heroes (It was actually the House of Emotion) and the three somehow found a way to end up in another house entirely. The entire ordeal was a mess but the duo ended up becoming friends with Agnes and often like to hang out with her and her friends.
  • In a way, the two can be described as George and Lennie in a fantastical setting. Similar names aside, both duos are actually quite friendly to each other since they can sympathize with the ordeals they have gone through and the two being quite the big guys, are able to tolerate Lennie's hugs (plus they can heal themselves later if horribly injured).
  • Given how they got lost in the first place, they rather stay as far away as possible from jungles to avoid that whole ordeal again. By principle they oppose the House of Prehistoric Beasts for being filled with dinosaurs but the one the two would rather never mess with is Mordremoth, an ancient dragon similar to Galakrond who happens to be shaped like a jungle with many dangerous things living on him. And they thought Un'goro was dangerous.
    • Thankfully the two got over the fear of jungles after venturing with Dr. Alan Grant by request of the Sacred Knights Order. The two ended up learning a lot about dinosaurs with their trip with Dr. Grant and they even managed to pick his interest about the Devilsaurs from their home universe, which they recommend it totally not worth visiting. That didn't stop Dr. Grant for trying anyway.
  • George usually drops by the Battlegrounds to compete in some brawls and was happy to know Bob managed to establish his tavern in the Pantheon, being a perfect way to relax while showing Karl the ropes of how things work there. Bob was just happy that he managed to ditch the League of E.V.I.L. and start anew.
  • George isn't that fond of adventurers after their seemingly fatal run-in with those in catacombs and one thing he gladly enjoyed was beating adventurers up back in Dalaran. He seems to have mellowed out on the aspect but those that are very arrogant tend to get on his nerves.
  • Karl is an honorary member of the League of Explorers after they found him in Uldum and became good friends with Sin Finley after defeating Rafaam and Galakrond. It's worth noting that ever since escaping the Catacombs he adopted an habit of putting candles in his head, which make others suspect he slowly started to adopt kobold customs.
  • During one of their grand adventurers they somehow ended up lost in the Dungeon's Keeper temple. After a series of encounters with the Keeper's minions they both managed to escape and swore to take down the Keeper for forcing them to go through his dangerous temple, possibly a worse experience that Un'goro and the Catacombs combined.

    Hideyasu Jonouchi/Kamen Rider Gridon 
Hideyasu Jonouchi, God of Redemption Promotions (Kamen Rider Gridon, Ornac, Kurokage Trooper)
Kamen Rider Gridon 
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Gridon Symbol and the Donguri Lockseed with the word bubble "NEVER GIVE UP!".
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, formerly True Neutral leaning towards Evil
  • Portfolio: Being an Advertised Extra, Redemption Promotions, Former Villains, Determinators, Bash Brothers with Ryoji Hase, Dandies, Being Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life, Wearing Glasses, The Only Male Team Leader of Team Invitto, Mighty Glaciers, Being Unskilled, but Strong, Becoming a Capable Fighter Over Time.
  • Domains: Combat, Tactics, Redemption, Tragedy.
  • Superior: Gen Urobuchi
  • Herald: Ryoji Hase/Kamen Rider Kurokage
  • Mentor: Oren Pierre Alfonzo/Kamen Rider Bravo.
  • Allies: The Toku Base (especially the Demonic Legion Defectors), Kouta Kazuraba/Kamen Rider Gaim, Mitsuzane Kureshima/Kamen Rider Ryugen (former enemies), Nagisa Momoe, Mami Tomoe, Jeremiah Gottwald, The Absolute Victory Unlosing Ranger, Alexander the Great, Ryoga "Shark" Kamishiro.
  • Enemies: The Demonic Legion, the Trollkaiger (especially Basco ta Jolokia and Handsome Jack), Jack Spicer, Dolores Umbridge
  • Hideyasu manage to ascend into the main Pantheon by exchanging his Patron Saint to Godhood status after a very long intense training in the Toku Base. As he enters the Pantheon, his words was "Do not... underestimate a pattisier. I've been training for this moment as I....HENSHIN!".
    • Oren Pierre Alfonzo was proud of his apprentice as he hugs him very hard which Jonouchi was a almost squashed in a funny matter. Nevertheless, they are once again able to fight side by side in the pantheon.
  • In the past, Hideyasu was originally a leader and only male member of the Beat Riders group Team Invitto during the Inves Games known for his cunning tactics while he is a big coward and an incompetent fighter at that time. Making an alliance with Ryoji Hase from Team Raid Wild after the two received their Sengoku Drivers from Lock Dealer Sid. After he betrayed the de-powered Hase, due to Hase's mistreatment on him, he decides to get stronger under the tutelage of Oren Pierre Alfonzo while at the same time, he is invited to join the Demonic Legion which he became a part of it for a while until he left the group after he finally breaks out of his cowardice and became a true redeemed Kamen Rider alongside Oren during the Helheim invasion.
  • After the invasion, Hideyasu continues to work in Oren's pastry shop and became satisfied with his life until he discovered Hase's fate through Takatora Kureshima and he temporarily became a Kurokage Trooper in honor of Hase's death.
  • Even after his ascension, he still gets along with the Demonic Legion Defectors as he also shared his experience with them.
  • He gets along with Nagisa Momoe due to the fact that they had a similar experience within their respective stories. Nagisa was touched of Hideyasu's viewpoint after they shared their respective stories.
  • At one point, Hideyasu bumps into Mami Tomoe, however, the Puella Magi quickly recognize the Armored Rider, as the two of them talks each other in Oren's pastry shop before he learned that his old friend Ryoji Hase was her High Priest. Due to this, Hideyasu and Mami become close friends while he gives her a good remark on Hase that "once Hase gets ascended into the pantheon, he will apologize to him".
  • He gets along well with Jeremiah Gottwald since both of them are former villains who later joined on the side of good and became more effective fighters in their respective stories.
  • He became friends with Alexander the Great as Jonouchi reminds him of Oren for some reason while Alexander also reminds Jonouchi of Waver Velvet mostly due to their similar traits and personalities.
  • He doesn't like most of the dirty cowardly villains, especially with Basco ta Jolokia and Handsome Jack of the Trollkaigers and Jack Spicer since both three of them reminding him too much of his former self. Due to this, he will do anything to stop their villainy at all cost.

    Terry McGinnis/Batman 
Terry McGinnis, God of Former Teen Rebels (Batman II, Batman V, Batman Beyond, The Tomorrow Knight)
Without the Batsuit 
  • Lesser God, borderline Intermediate God with the Batsuit.
  • Symbol: The Batsuit.
  • Theme: Batman Beyond theme music.
  • Alignment: Between Neutral Good and Chaotic Good.
  • Portfolio: The Atoner, Badass Normal, Brought Down to Badass, Chocolate Baby, Combat Pragmatist, Contrasting Sequel Main Character, Create Your Own Arch-Enemy, Dark Is Not Evil, Former Teen Rebel, Good Is Not Soft, Killed The Joker, Legacy Character, Offhand Backhand, Spin-Offspring, "The Reason You Suck" Speech, Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World, You Fight Like a Cow, You Killed My Father
  • Domains: Darkness, Future, Technology
  • Allies:
  • Conflicting Opinion: Talia al Ghul
  • Headbutting Heroes: Damian Wayne/Robin V
  • Enemies: The Joker, Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn, Ra's al Ghul, The Lich
  • Terry McGinnis is the biological son of Bruce Wayne, and the result of Project Batman Beyond, a secret Cadmus Project commissioned and canceled by Amanda Waller that involved overwriting the DNA of Terry's actual father, Warren McGinnis, with Bruce's to ensure that The Batman would go on after Bruce Wayne. About twenty years after Bruce Wayne retired as Batman from old age, sixteen-year-old Terry McGinnis discovered his secret by accident. Though initially unable to convince Bruce to let him become Batman, Warren was killed shortly afterwards, which led to Terry "borrowing" the Batsuit from Bruce to catch the man who ordered his death. After that, Bruce allowed him to don the mantle and, with Bruce as his Mission Control, become the hero that Gotham needed once again.
  • Through his adventures, he gradually matured out of his rebellious teenager phase and grew into a true hero capable of gaining the respect of the Justice League. Because he accomplished this while ironically still in his teenage years, he was considered an exemplar for the trope of Former Teen Rebel, granting him entry to the Pantheon.
  • Gets along rather well with the younger versions of the Batclan. In particular, he was relieved to see that the Pantheon's Tim had not undergone the events he had in his world at the Joker's hands.
  • Jason Todd initially wasn't sure what to think of Terry. However, after he saw this, he immediately decided that he liked him.
    • Damian on the other hand has a bit of a rivalry with Terry due to both of them being Batman's biological son. Damian considers Terry soft for needing technology to do work, while Terry considers Damian a bit messed up due to his upbringing. But as both are committed to justice, the arguing never extends to field work.
  • Was shocked to discover that the Joker was still alive in the Pantheon, despite the clown's death in his own world. Several of the other gods have asked Terry if he intends to finish the job for good if he ever runs into the Joker. His only reply was "maybe". The Joker, for his part, still doesn't see Terry as a "real" Batman, despite losing to him before.
    • As a side note, due to Terry killing her "puddin", Harley Quinn has sworn eternal vengeance against the Tomorrow Knight. However, recent events where she had broken up with Joker and found a friendship-slash-romance with Poison Ivy leave the status of that vow of revenge in question. Terry's still being careful, though.
  • Terry harbors a massive dislike for the Lich, despite never encountering him personally. He admitted once that this was because the Lich is essentially a more evil and powerful version of Derek Powers/Blight, the man who ordered his real father's death.
  • Is on good terms with Mr. Freeze, due to his encounter with the latter in his universe, and Freeze's death shortly afterwards. The two have bonded during their time in the Pantheon, and Freeze has admitted he hopes Terry finds more happiness in his life than he did in his.
  • Though his girlfriend Dana Tan, and his friend Maxine Gibson have not ascended, he often invites them to the Pantheon.
  • One of his most well-known feats was his "The Reason You Suck" Speech to the Joker during their fight in his universe, especially since it was one of the only times the Joker had no actual rebuttal to what he said.
  • Bonded with Kim Possible after he met her about their mutual problems with Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World. Also, Terry shares a voice base with Kim's boyfriend Ron.
  • Not always totally approved of by some of the other superheroes, since unlike several of them, Terry has fewer issues than most with letting a villain die at their own hands even if he could have saved them.
  • Once, while on patrol, he came across Miguel O'Hara. Mistaking him for some sort of spliced victim gone insane, the two then came to blows. It ended with Terry using three explosive batarangs to blow a hole through Miguel's chest.
    • Wiz and Boomstick later came to Terry and explained not only that Miguel really was a hero from a future time like himself, the Spider-Man of the year 2099 to be exact, but also that their company had interns around who generated a field around the fight and captured it as a Death Battle. While initially peeved at this, Terry quickly got over it when the duo pointed out how he got himself into the fight in the first place and all they did was ensure that the loser was killed on their watch so they could quickly arrange his revival after a report to the Court of the Gods. Once Miguel was restored, Terry was relieved. He swore he'll apologize if Miguel ever ascends.
  • Is somewhat contentious towards Damian Wayne. Given both are somewhat rough-edged but ultimately well-meaning protégés of Bruce Wayne, as well as Bruce's biological son in a separate timeline/universe from each other, and they both love their dogs, they can be safely considered each other's Alternate Timeline counterpart. However, Terry insists Damian "came second" chronologically as Bruce's son, unless one counts Kingdom Come, while Damian takes full advantage of his position as Terry's mentor in Bruce's stead when Terry travels to his universe. Naturally, there's a bit of oneupsmanship involved.
    • Likewise, he's unsure what to think regarding Damian's mother Talia al Ghul. Due to what Talia's father Ra's al Ghul did to her in his universe, he felt somewhat sorry for her. However, some of her actions have left him conflicted as to whether her dying was a good or bad thing. Ra's himself, though, that's easy. He thinks the man is patently insane.

  • Andrew Ryan was the creator and ruler of Rapture. Born Andrei Ryanovski in Soviet Russia, he emigrated to America at a young age, eventually becoming one the country's richest and most powerful industrialists. However, he became increasingly disillusioned with the U.S. after the enactment of FDR's social policies, which reminded him of the country he had fled. The dropping of the atomic bombs in Nagasaki and Hiroshima were the last straw since Ryan saw them as the corruption of science and industry into making a weapon that allowed "parasites" to destroy what they couldn't seize. Wishing to flee said "parasites" and fearing all out nuclear war, Ryan created Rapture so that he and what he saw as the best examples of mankind could live in peace.
    • However, despite initially following Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism, he's eventually turned against everything his dream stood for. In response to Frank Fontaine's business empire, he used state power to absorb it instead, thus becoming the "Big Government" he founded Rapture to get away from. In response to Anna Culpepper writing songs critical of Ryan's regime, he ordered her death, becoming the censor artists were not supposed to fear in Rapture. By using pheromones to control his loyalists' minds, Ryan removed the self determination he once considered sacred. He opposed the mad science in Rapture, despite believing that the scientist should not be constrained by "petty" morality. Lastly, despite being an atheist, several institutions have Religious and Mythological Theme Naming.
    • That said, from A Certain Point of View, if one considers the very likely idea that he's taken Objectivism to its logical if excessive conclusion, he did everything for his own benefit. Add in the point of altruism being considered anathema to personal self-interest and the emphasis on "looking out for number one," it likely that Rapture wasn't meant to be a charitable refuge for the world's elite. In other words, he is—or rather was—Rapture and that all that mattered to him was himself, arguably the one thing he wasn't hypocritical about to the end. Everyone else in the city was simply invited to try their luck in his glorified playpen.
  • Some time after his being golf clubbed to death by his son Jack Ryan, Andrew found himself before the Court of the Gods after an unspecified deity petitioned for his ascension. He was initially displeased after their sales pitch, though it was less of his position and more on godhood as a whole, given that he's an atheist, but the Court pointed out that godhood in the Pantheon is less a in literal sense of that word and more of a real estate paper to own their own place in here.
  • Also, after grilling him ruthlessly of his failures (at the behest of an anonymous deity who vouched for Andrew's ascension in the first place), the Court offered to help in rebuilding Rapture (some people are actually interested in an Objectivist-following society and wish to see how it will work out, and even marvel by how socially progressive it was at the time). There will be a few caveats, though, as well as advantages. Which he was forced to accept to avoid the coup of Frank Fontaine that eventually brought the whole city to ruin, not helped by Andrew's paranoia:
    1. There will be trading to and from Rapture, so as to maintain a balanced supply and demand and decrease incentive for contraband.
    2. People are allowed to leave or enter as they please so long as they follow Rapture's creed while inside the city. It's not like his city is a secret anymore, so there's no point in enforcing Resignations Not Accepted.
    3. Any who have issues with Rapture's vision will still have to behave themselves while inside, and any who cause trouble in it will be evicted. Invaders, such as the pirate Black Manta, will be similarly fended off.
    4. To prevent the resentment that resulted in Rapture's eventual downfall, the city's (basic) food, health care, sanitation and oxygen supply are not to be exorbitantly charged (cuisines being exempt from this policy), with the last being free and supplied by outside sources. The former three are to be under control by publicly funded social programs, since they're pivotal to Rapture's stability. After all, Rapture still needs blue-collar workers to "clean the toilets" and such.
    5. Rapture will be rebuilt with better materials (for one, not using aluminum frames as it is a lot weaker than steel when it comes to handling stress, which especially applies when underwater), though aesthetics will remain under Andrew's discretion.
    6. Andrew has the right to evict and ban "parasites" from Rapture, but the Court will determine the duration of the ban and whether or not it's indefinite.
    7. No Mad Scientist in Rapture is permitted to use sapient beings as test subjects, since—ethics aside—that would invalidate Andrew's creed.
  • Andrew doesn't really spend time in his temple, which is mostly a portal gateway to the bathysphere port that takes people to Rapture, as well as a screen that serves as a means of communicating with Andrew directly from his office.
  • Being partially responsible for Elizabeth's death in his city, she and Booker naturally oppose him.
  • As for his son Jack Ryan, he has no choice but to acknowledge that he's well on his way to becoming a man and not as slave as he either took Splicers with him to the surface and launched a nuke, or fled to the surface with seven rescued Little Sisters and lived a long and fulfilling life with them. In any case, Jack wants nothing more to do with Andrew.
  • Given his life experiences, he's remaining a neutral party in regards to the Pantheonic Wars.
    • Being an atheist as well as scorning all forms of favoring the common folk and having specifically founded Rapture to escape the big governments, he's definitely not allied with the GUAG or GUAL. He also sees YHVH as everything wrong with religion worship controlling the masses.
    • Rapture would doubtless be screwed over should the GUAE or GUAD win. He will not allow tyranny or oblivion to end this dream of his.
    • Despite being the closest to his alignment and most tolerant of his vision, the fact that the GUAC also values strength and power leaves him with a bad taste in his mouth, since Rapture is mostly comprised of artists and scientists. Unless he can find someone in there capable of and willing to protect Rapture...
    • What he perceives as limited creativity from machines means he won't back the GUAM either.
  • Because of the Russian Revolution, which eventually brought the Bolsheviks into power, destroyed his family's business and got his aunt and uncle killed for opposing the communist regime, he doesn't have any favorable opinions for those who come from there, even if he was born there.
  • Considered Roosevelt and his "New Dealers" to be "spoon-feeding" Americans on the "Bolshevik Poison", and considers "parasites" those who benefit undeservedly from others. Roosevelt's social programs has the intention of restoring hope and an economic engine devastated by the unfettered excesses of men like Andrew Ryan, so that's understandable.
  • Nukes had been the tipping point for him before he decided to strike out on his own, so he loathes those who would employ such methods or use such weapons no matter their reason.
  • In hindsight, hiring Sofia Lamb to meet the demand of a psychologist in Rapture proved to be a mistake, as her personal philosophy and background ran entirely opposed to his own. The Court has provided substitutes who would prove better and would not incite a revolution.
  • Commander Shepard and the deified Federation Captains (Kirk, Picard, Janeway and Archer) oppose Rapture's ideals, the latter three due to Rapture's ideals being a perversion of those presented by the Federation. Shepherd sees Rapture as no different than Cerberus, and so does Miranda. Jack the biotic attempted to smuggle herself in once, but after last time, before Andrew's ascension and Rapture's revamp, she's been discovered and forcibly evicted.
  • When it comes to other philosophies...
    • Even if it's a philosophy unbound by tradition and morality, Yamato's meritocracy has its own constraint that Andrew can't tolerate; the need to be productive, or else be cast out.
    • Having been compared to Cerberus by Shepard and Miranda, Andrew is barely on speaking terms with the Illusive Man. While both are unconstrained by morality and work to make advancements, Andrew's distaste comes from the fact that TIM has "selfless" motivations, and while it's true that he's yet to get any actual extraterrestrials to join Rapture so far, Cerberus would oppose his city should that happen.
  • Lex Luthor, Darth Sidious, Makuta Teridax and Isaac Westcott think Andrew lacks true ambition, as the power he seeks is ultimately irrelevant in a world of gods and magic. He in return despises the latter three since Rapture won't survive under their victory, and is disappointed with the former for utilizing his advancements just for stopping Superman when he could do much more with it.
  • Robert House is his chief business rival, yet both share a mutual respect, due to the both of then coming from Rags to Riches. Ironically, one scenario regarding House's mortal demise involves The Courier braining Mr. House with a golf club, just like Andrew.
  • Is displeased with Brentalfloss's pitch of his city. This rapper, on the other hand, less so, even if he tries to imitate his voice. It can also serve as a good sales pitch for Rapture.
    • That said, being from a time long before rap was even a concept, he is utterly confused by this style of music.
    Ryan: Is this truly what the modern youth respond to...?
  • The Mob tweaked his slogan for one of their adventures when they were (at the time) opposing Lord Helix. Andrew isn't amused.
  • The Institute is interested in expanding their operations to Rapture, seeing as how their goals coincide with his own. But Andrew is put off by the Insitute's M.O. of killing and replacing humans with Synths.
  • Gets some ire from the House of Nature for the time he burnt down a forest (admittedly in his own property) in response to the government trying to claim it as a park, and again when he deprived Rapture's oxygen supply just to keep Jack Ryan from reaching him by torching the gardens.
  • Because of it being essentially a pro-capitalist utopia (on the surface that is), Andrew simultaneously respects and envies the Holy City on the Water, Asterisk, for its economic prosperity and technologic achievements.
  • To Raz, Andrew sounds too much like his father, whom he had spent much of his time getting away from and eventually reconciling with.
  • After having been given an outsider's perspective of her world's events and its characters, Spinnerette has noted Andrew's Objectivism goals, and that her city's villain Dr. Universe follows the same principle. And might probably do a lot better there than Andrew would.
  • "A man chooses, a slave obeys."

  • Allies: Dipper and Mabel Pines, Naruto and Hinata, Charlotte LaBouff, Seto Kaiba, Uncle Howee, Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zuko, Jin Kazama, Hayate Ayasaki, Miles Edgeworth
  • Enemies: Eliza and Neil Reagan, Princess Morbucks, Manfred von Karma, Bill Cypher
  • She ascended after the pantheon saw how horribly abusive her parents were, and after she had saved the twin gods Dipper and Mabel from near death.
  • She has managed to become good friends with the twins, but the pantheon has split in half thinking that she is attracted to one twin or the other and vice versa. In response, the three kids have merely stated the words of their trollish creator, Alex Hirsch.
    All three of them: We’re 12 year olds. We shouldn’t focus on romance. We should focus on pop tarts and Pokémon.
  • Many gods were appalled to find that her parents had abused her by the way of Pavlovian conditioning. Quite a few gods that protect children nearly when on a rampage to destroy them, forcing others to calm them down.
    • The Avatars of Friendship have given her a party to help cheer her up and to tell her that everything will be all right and that she has many friends in the Pantheon who will be by her side. She's been thankful for the kindness.
  • Uncle Howee went off to do his usual bit, tricking her parents into a bet they couldn’t win, turning them into marionettes in the process. However, Pacifica herself came to ask him to turn them back, determined not to be as cruel as they were. Howee respected her request; though he does do puppet shows for her every now and the, giving her a bit of a childhood she never had.
  • Bruce Wayne sympathized with her, feeling that her abused childhood was just as bad as his orphaned one. He ended up teaching her what it actually meant to hold that kind of financial power, and all the kindness and philanthropist actions that went with it. After Pacifica told him of her family’s horrible deeds, he decided that Batman would pay them a visit. Once there, he attempted to find the evidence, only to discover it had been moved. He confronted the Northwests (scaring the daylights out of them), and told them this.
    Batman: You’re sick, painting all of your most horrible deeds like they were glorious victories, and treating your daughter like a dog. You drink and eat your spoils, confident that you hid that evidence well… but I’m going to find it. And when I do, you’ll be in jail faster than you can plead ‘innocent’, and your fortune will belong to her. And there won’t be any deals that you can loophole or cheat around; it will be definite.
  • Seto Kaiba felt empathetic to her as well, having gone through an awful childhood because of his adoptive father. He has told her that she is free to enter any of his parks without pay, making sure to let his employees of said parks know. Hearing of Batman’s plans to reveal her parent’s nasty deeds, he has secretly planned ways to trick them out of their money and businesses and give them to Pacifica, just in case the Dark Knight isn’t successful.
  • Zuko also allies himself with her, having an abusive father of his own. He admires that she was able to learn that her destiny was her own, and at a far younger age than he.
    • Pacifica has felt pity for Azula for also being under the thumb of an abusive father. Unfortunately, Azula is not willing to take the pity from her.
  • Naruto and Hinata have taken quite a liking to her, and have invited her over many, many times to spend the day with them and their family. She’s often stated that they are the best days she’s had along the ones she spends with the twins, even when Naruto is swamped by work. Though she hasn’t accepted any adoption requests, most of the pantheon believes they are the likeliest candidates.
  • Meanwhile, Jin Kazama has already invited her to the Anti-Parental Abuse club.
  • Being a child, she was already friends with Hayate even before they knew about each other. The Parental Neglect they share simply helped them get along even faster.
  • Charlotte is also great friends with her, being an actual fellow nice rich girl. They often go on shopping trips together (she hasn’t lost her sense of fashion).
  • Gets surprisingly well along with Miles Edgeworth; both of them know the life with a parent abusing them using conditioning.
    • As such, Pacifica does not like Manfred von Karma, as he reminds her of her own father, Preston.
  • Does not like Princess Morbucks, considering the powerpuff wannabe’s role is the exact opposite of hers: Being completely pampered by her father while she is the villainous one.
  • She also hates Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon because she reminds her of how she used to be. But after Diamond Tiara had a change of heart and seeing how alike they really are however, she decided to befriend her and is pushing her to be ascended out of the Unsorted. She's made good friends with the Cutie Mark Crusaders (but has learned from various gods that if the Crusaders asked her to meet up with a pair of vampire wrestlers to REFUSE the offer, considering how energetic and chaotic the group can be.)
  • Is actually skilled at mini-golf, and sometimes goes to the House of Sports to play a round.
  • Being a proud father that loves his son, Bowser swore to make the Northwest family pay for what they did to Pacifica (if Batman and Kaiba fail in their respective revenge schemes). Bowser Jr. was suitably horrified as well, and he and Pacifica occasionally go on playdates (with Jr. even letting her try out the Jr. Clown Car).
  • Was weirded out when she once had lunch at Remy's temple since, somehow, the rat reminded her of her own father. However, after having some of his famous ratatouille, she's calmed down and tips the rat generously.
  • To everyone's surprise, she joined forces with Dipper and Mabel during the "Tarot Crusaders" incident, despite having no experience in fighting the supernatural. Fortunately, Jack and Annie's magic gave her the edge to fight like a professional wrestler (even though she's not into that sort of thing) and she's pretty powerful with a golf-club in hand.

    Vir Cotto 
Vir Cotto, God of Growing a Spine (Flounder IN SPACE!)
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The Centauri Symbol
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Originally a Plucky Comic Relief with Hidden Depths, Adorkable, Can't Hold His Liquor, Token Good Teammate, The Conscience, Badass Bureaucrat, ultimately The Kingslayer and The Emperor afterwards.
  • Domains: Law Good, Nobility, Leadership
  • Allies: Kosh, Lorien, Susan Ivanova, John Sheridan, Jeffrey Sinclair, Amy Rose, Jiminy Cricket, Ariel
  • Enemies: Ron Swanson, The Vogons, Tywin Lannister, Head Pixie
  • Opposed by: Lord Djibril
  • Odd Friendship: Tyrion Lannister
  • Admired by: Piglet
  • If someone from 20 years ago would say that Vir Gotto would be among the most revered bureaucrats in the Pantheon, they would have been laughed out of the building. And with good reason; Cottohe was introduced as a Plucky Comic Relief to the heroes. He was even compared to Flounder. Yet with time, he received one of the most prolific Character Development in the Pantheon. By the time his story ended, he has taken the throne for himself, free of any outside influence. Sure he had help from the many gods from his world residing beside him, but much of it was his doing. Not bad for a person who got the job by accident.John Sheridan felt obliged to bring him over to the Pantheon as thanks.
  • Received a hero's welcome from those of his friends that arrived before him. He was particularly happy to see Sheridan and Sinclair again after their disappearances in his world. They were glad to hear that Cotto's reign has been going smoothly. With that said, they are all wary in the event that the Shadows make their way into the Pantheon.
  • To be fair, Tyrion didn't think much of Vir Cotto. Then again, most people overlook the dwarf that has kept the Lannisters intact for most of his life. When he did meet Cotto, he was surprised at his composure as king. Tyrion offered a drink and the two fell into a deep conversation about including how he even got the job in the first place.
    • It does help that Vir Cotto handed his father the bureaucratic equivalent of the middle finger. While Tywin is the God of Effective Bureaucrats, he has a tendency of removing those who do not agree to his methods. Those who don't are forced to work with Leslie Knope, who while a good bureaucrat on her own has too many problems for her to be ranked higher. Cotto responded by allowing a large chuck of Tywin's begrudged followers to coalesce around him. Tywin saw this as an affront to his authority, and the two have been battling to win over recruits.
  • Early on, Vir Cotto has struggled to justify the actions of his morally ambiguous king Londo Mollari. He has more than often tried to steer them towards more morally tenable acts. It has certainly made him a Morality Pet in their journeys, something Amy Rose is all too familiar with. Amy has proven that such characters aren't spineless wimps, capable of slamming people with her hammer if need be. She's grateful to see another of her kind in the Pantheon.
    • One can also call him The Conscience to his group. Jiminy Cricket was initially unimpressed, as Londo hardly ever listened to him. But as time went on, the God of Consciences appreciated how Cotto handled the situation in the end.
  • While Cotto lays claim to much of their rank, most cowards secretly hope to grow out of their shell and become better people. To Piglet, this would mean a likely loss of rank. Yet he is fine with those who are able to overcome their fear.
    • That is not the case for Lord Djibril. He holds a bit of jealousy for those who leave his temple after becoming more than DIrty Cowards. He even tried to cause a diplomatic row by starting a dispute between the Emperor of Mankind and the House of Extraterrestrials. Not only did Vir Cotto managed to smooth things out between the two factions, he even traced the cause back to Lord Djibril. The head of LOGOS responded by strangling the man, but enough heroes came to his aid to scare him off.
  • Is not a fan of Ron Swanson's role of ObstructiveBureacracy, preventing more effective bureaucrats from doing their jobs. With that said, he does see some use to this when it comes to sabotaging more corrupt governments.
  • Was displeased to see that the Vogons have managed to gain a seat in the Pantheon. Not just because their poem reading is awful, but they are among the most annoying to deal with in terms of diplomacy.
  • Even worse than the last two are the pixies. He knew that H.P. was responsible for corrupting the Centauri Republic to the Shadows. The only way to rectify that was to purge the entire council, including the former king Londo. As the new ruler, he swore never to let their corruption take a hold on his kingdom. The Head Pixie responded with a shrug of indifference. To them, it was a world that they carelessly neglected. Then again, they never expected someone like Cotto would be able to great their hold.


How well does it match the trope?
