Greater Gods

    Aslan 
Aslan, God of Religious Metaphors (King Of Beasts, The Lion, The Lamb)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/narnia_3_aslan_111705.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A White Lamb...no, wait, a Lion...no wait, a lamb!
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Messianic Archetypes, Talking Animals, Theories Involving Purgatory, Extremely Forthright Symbolism
  • Domains: Animal, Glory, Good, Law
  • Heralds: The Pevensie siblings (His chosen kings of Narnia)
  • Allies: Cosmos, Simba, Mufasa, Superman, Wonder Woman, Popeye, Morpheus, Butters, Nicholas St. North, God
  • Enemies: Jadis, Scar, YHVH, Lucifer, Robot Santa
  • Sure, there are other Jesus metaphors. Who did you think they worked for?
  • Scar nominally opposes Him and is said to be working to overthrow Him, but really... he knows he has no chance in Hell.
  • Leader of the Council of Nine.
  • Just shook his head in dismay upon learning about that trek to find Malachite's Hand and who dressed up as him.
  • Aslan has symphonized with Kevin Flynn and John Carter over their respective film franchises suffering Genre-Killer and having planned sequels cancelled just because the franchise wasn't making enough money. In addition, Sly Cooper has stated that he's on the same boat, since his franchise is unlikely to ever get sequels, and he's stuck in Ancient Egypt.
  • Being a fantastic representation of Jesus Christ, Aslan can only "hate" evil and nothingness in themselves, whether it be personified as the Leaders of the alliances that oppose peace, justice and universal kindness. In fact, Aslan has already predicted the ultimate triumph of Good, even before he was accepted in the Pantheon. Needless to say, Lucifer, YHVH, Melkor and Nekron were angry and confronted Aslan about it. He merely said.
    The nature of your defeat is quite simple: none of you respond to love. Lucifer can only understand freedom as a prize, not a right. YHVH responds only to things that can be weighed or measured. He imposes law, he doesn't nurture it. He appraises order; he doesn't bother to seek out its truth or meaning. And Melkor lives in a mirror; the world is nothing more to him than a reflection of himself. And Nekron... the world, to him, is a small animal, caught in a trap, to be tormented. His pleasure is the giving of pain, and from this, he receives the same sense of fulfillment most people get from a kiss or an embrace. You're caricatures, all of you Gods or not, you're caricatures. And this is why you are destined to lose.
    • For that speech, Lorien smiled and congratulated Aslan, while Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise crew delivered a standing ovation. Aslan was even accepted into the ranks of the Grand United Alliance of Good. Cosmos, aware of his reputation, offered to cede leadership of the Alliance to him, but Aslan replied, as he is too humble to be an active leader.
    • Much to the shock of those listening, however, Lucifer listened calmly and intently to his advice. Much to their horror, he accepted Aslan's words, but gave a warning of his own.
    Lucifer: Indeed I do Aslan. For it was only through earning my right to freedom that humanity was able to be saved from our shared Creators YHVH grasp, even as I fell from heaven as the price. To say that one mustn't earn one's freedom even when it is all but stripped away leaves one only with despair and complacency, as humans will give up to their freedom for false safety in societal order. Make no mistake, humans can have freedom, but for every individual, that word has a different meaning, even one of order that humans strive for can be ideal so long as gods do not exist to choke the freedom in such a state. Yet there are two things you truly do misunderstand about me. Heed me well, to say I am a caricature incapable of responding to love is the same kind of mentality YHVH, Nekron, and Melkor have. For if I did not respond to Love I could not conceive my many children with their human mothers and fathers, nor create one by myself, and if I did not know of the love of Friendship I could not be summoned and incarnated in forms when heroes have needed aid through the bonds of their friends. I am contradiction incarnate, I am mankind's eternal protector, and its eternal adversary. I will save humans when they need it, and I will be struck down when humans need it. That is my nature.
  • Also has a seat in the House of Philosophy and the Main House.

    Dagomon 
Dagomon, Deep God of Cthulhu Expies (Dragomon, Sinful Priest of the Ocean Floor)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dagomontvtp.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A lighthouse emitting a ray of darkness
  • Alignment: Probably Blue-and-Orange Morality, comes across as some form of Evil
  • Portfolio: Expy of Cthulhu and also Father Dagon, rules over the Dark Ocean, causes Ocean Madness, wields a trident and its tentacles, scrapped plotlines, cosmic horrors in optimistic settings, Ambiguously Evil
  • Domains: Mons, the Internet, Viruses, Abominations, Darkness, the Sea
  • Heralds: Its Divermon (Hangyomon) servants, equivalent to the Deep Ones
  • Allies: Many Elder Gods, especially Dagon and Ghatanothoa, The Kraeken, The Lunatic Cultist
  • Enemies: All the DigiDestined and good Digimon (and possibly even some bad ones), D-Reaper, GUAG White Hats, Captain Nemo, Captain Ahab, The ABZU Diver, The Hunter
  • Interested parties: Eric Cartman
  • Dagomon is an evil god Digimon thought to have originated as a virus in the electronic instruments aboard ships, confusing their direction and throwing them off course. Dagomon exists in a bleak dimension separate from the Digital World, making its home at the bottom of a sea known as the Dark Ocean, which seems to attract troubled people and is capable of corrupting them into evil. With that said, it's not at all clear what Dagomon's goals are, or if it even has them.
  • The Pantheon's first run-in with Dagomon occurred as Captain Nemo was traveling the oceans in his submarine Nautilus. As he moved onto an uncharted area that he couldn't help but remark on the dreariness of, he noticed the instruments in his ship going berserk. When he decided to emerge and opened the hatchet to see his surroundings, he saw a beach and a distant lighthouse that seemed to give off darkness instead of light. It was a sight out of a horror story, in his opinion, and he felt somewhat ill. Then the Nautilus was suddenly surrounded by shadowy creatures shaped like Fish People and the Captain, in a haste to just get out of there, only saw another massive shadow with red eyes seemingly fading into view in the distance before he got back in and did his best to get away from it all. But Captain Nemo's brief presence was enough for Dagomon to extend its influence to the Pantheon, somehow even snatching a divine title to cement it. Nemo was dismayed and felt guilty that the ghastly creature was here to stay when the White Hats made the news public.
  • Is most famous for having a hand in Ken Ichijouji's corruption and nearly doing something similar to Hikari. Presumably; while the two Digidestined did have disturbing encounters with the Dark Ocean, it's unclear how involved Dagomon was in this, as it never left the background to make its intentions known. It is clear, at any rate, that the Dark Ocean poses a danger. All the DigiDestined keep a close eye on it and have gotten some of the Royal Knights posted at the entrance to its temple to ensure nobody accidentally enters it. Ken is especially concerned about the possiblity of the Dark Ocean creating other villains like him when he was the Kaiser.
  • Dagomon's temple is more like a portal to the Dark Ocean dimension where it still resides. Only other eldritch deities can walk in that place without consequence; there have been plenty of incidents of depressed deities getting pulled in and nearly losing themselves, despite the DigiDestined's best efforts. This may because there isn't only one entrance to the place; alternate portals to the Dark Ocean exist in the areas of the Pantheon (especially below sea level) where no one lives and which are rarely traveled.
  • The deletion program D-Reaper feeds on despair to gather more power, so the Dark Ocean's influence on people is rather interesting as a study subject. It seems likely that the D-Reaper would like to take over the Dark Ocean so as to take all the negative energy it produces for itself. That would mean defeating Dagomon, of course. However, it seems as if the D-Reaper malfunctions very badly whenever it tries to make an incursion there, owing to the strange nature of the place, so those plans would have to be put on hold as the D-Reaper researches some way to enter the Dark Ocean safely.
    • Dagomon's Lovecraftian nature means it is also warmly welcomed by such pleasant characters as the Lunatic Cultist, a worshipper of Cthulhu who devoted himself to carrying out the Elder One's will, only to summon it with his dying breath. The Cultist seems just as willing to carry out the will of Dagomon, whatever it may be. Conversely, Dagomon has to watch out for The Hunter as a significant threat, as he is well-known for killing many eldritch creatures.
  • Dagomon is the Digital World's equivalent to the eldritch beings invented by H.P. Lovecraft. Specifically, its tentacle-profuse appearance is modeled after Cthulhu, while its name and role as an ocean-dwelling god is taken from Father Dagon. It's probably on good terms with the original eldritch creatures, whatever "good terms" means for them. Its namesake Dagon in particular seems to have a special appreciation for its work with the Dark Ocean and seems willing to help stop those pesky DigiDestined from interfering. Much the same can be said of the Kraeken, who can occasionally be found on random places of the Dark Ocean to make things difficult for any wayward deities, as well as Ghatanothoa.
  • Eric Cartman remembers that time he got to control Cthulhu to do whatever he wanted well. So when he heard about Dagomon, who he still insists is a Chinpokomon despite many corrections, he thought it was just perfect since they are meant to be partnered with. To this day he keeps devising ways to get into the Dark Ocean to convince Dagomon to partner with him. However, it would seem that Dagomon cannot be convinced with the same tactics that worked on Cthulhu. Instead, Cartman seems to get constantly kicked out of the Dark Ocean when he does manage to get in. Nobody blames Dagomon for this, given what a little shit Cartman is known to be (and Cartman's angry tirades when he gets kicked out are pretty funny).
  • Just like what happened to Captain Nemo, other sea travelers are bound to run into Dagomon or the Dark Ocean either by the strength of their negative emotions or through sheer bad luck. Some might do it more intentionally than others, out of thirst for adventure. It was only a matter of time until the notoriously obsessive Captain Ahab found himself there. Rather than do the sensible thing and sail back towards where he came from, he decided it was as good an opportunity as any to try to hunt Dagomon, who had become the subject of so many sailors' nightmares. Last he was seen he had disappeared into the fog and it certainly didn't end well because he awoke in the House of Life and Death. Ahab doesn't seem that fazed by what happened and seems resolved to try again and again (in-between hunting that accursed Moby-Dick, anyway).
    • Jack Sparrow has also ventured into the Dark Ocean in one of his many adventures. In his case he was eager to see whether the place had any treasure or not; considering most people who went there only wanted to get out as soon as possible or succumbed to despair, any potential riches would be ripe for the taking, according to his theory. He fought off quite a few of Dagomon's servants and was smart enough not to stay well away from where the mon itself manifested, but ultimately found nothing resembling treasure... so he took some random rocks back with him anyway, since everything in the Dark Ocean was so gray, there was no way of telling for sure. Lo and behold... the random rocks were just rocks. Jack Sparrow called it a tremendous waste of time. Other deities are just surprised he came out unaffected.
    • Though generally feared and reviled, Dagomon does command respect from the Greyjoys. The Greyjoys are from the Iron Islands, whose population worships a so-called Drowned God, which reputedly resembles Cthulhu and other such tentacled abominations. When an Iron Island ship chances upon the Dark Ocean, the crew's reaction is to pay respects to Dagomon and its servants. Perhaps for this reason, Dagomon refrains from attacking them. Only Theon Greyjoy doesn't really care for this worship, being more of a Stark, and disturbed by what he's heard about the Dark Ocean.
  • At least aquatic animals, such as the aforementioned Moby-Dick, instinctually know to avoid the Dark Ocean. This is a load off the ABZU Diver's mind, who cares a lot for these creatures and would hate to see them suffer in the Dark Ocean. Though, hearing about Dagomon's servants did compel her to go there once, thinking they might be tethered against their will. It was a mistake on her part, as not only were the servants hostile no matter what she did, but being a robot, Dagomon's interference eventually started getting to her, to the point that she had to send the White Hats a distress signal before she broke down completely. She was salvaged and brought back to normal, of course, but she will never try to take on the Dark Ocean by herself again.

  • Respects: Cosmos
  • Complicated Relations: Jeanne d'Arc Alter
  • Mentor To: Jaune Arc
  • Raised as a simple farmer's daughter, Jeanne supposedly heard the voice of God to defend France against England. Heeding that voice, Jeanne joined the French army at a young age, leading the front as their flag bearer. Never once wavering in battle as she led her men to victory even when she was shot by two arrows in one of her battles, she was an inspiration to her troops. Unfortunately, Jeanne was finally captured, tried as a witch, and burned at the stake. It wouldn't be until years later that the ruling would be overturned and she be recognized as a Saint. Afterwards, because of her deeds, it inspired a specific type of character of a young woman who goes into battle for either her country, faith, or ideals and who is trying to liberate her people of oppression, becoming the Trope Namer and codifier of the Jeanne d'Archétype itself.
  • As mentioned before, Jeanne's claim of hearing God's voice is met with suspicion by many of the other deities. Some believe she's just mentally ill and those voices were only in her head. Whatever the case, all still agree that Joan is still a capable fighter and garners nothing but respect.
    • Others believe that God's Voice was actually Kyubey himself who gave Jeanne her power and made her a Puella Magi. Jeanne denies such a claim that her powers would come from a cosmic weasel like him and has nothing but contempt for him because of his manipulation of young girls to become magical girls and in turn becoming witches.
    • Recent discoveries however has revealed that there is an alternate version of Jeanne who became a magical girl due to a contract with a creature named Cube. Moreover, this version of Jeanne learns that she will eventually become a witch early on and accepts the fact without falling into despair. Jeanne decided to follow this new discovery closely, though she already knows how it will end.
  • Is in a very peculiar crossroad when it comes to both Cosmos and YHVH; for the former, she has nothing but respect for the leader of the GUAG and is welcome in the Sacred Knights. But for the latter, he is the Great Will that she still worships as her God and would go into battle if he commands it. However, despite these conflicting loyalties, Jeanne was able to be put in both the GUAG and the GUAL. Even more shocking was that YHVH allowed Jeanne to be part of Cosmos's army. Because of this odd situation, members of both the GUAG and GUAL are suspicious of Jeanne being a spy for the other Alliance.
    • Her opinions on Melkor and Lucifer are nothing but negative; she hates the former for spreading evil and enslaving it's people and despise the later because of his tempting of Homura Akemi and causing her fall.
  • Astolfo was the first to welcome Jeanne in the Pantheon, giving her a hug. While Jeanne was happy to see the youthful paladin, a part of her feels envious that he has more followers then she. Jeanne has been considering wearing a bikini to attract more followers.
    • Alternatively, she's been spreading her legend to many of the Japanese Deities who are willing to listen to her.
    • And she's still shocked anytime Astolfo innocently shows off his no-no parts.
  • Was stunned when she first met Arturia Pendragon. Not only for their faces looking quite similar or that the two sound the same, but also living somewhat identical lives. It was a surprise to the French woman that she would find an ally in an English woman.
    • She also found more women like her in Sophitia Alexandria and Lightning, who to were compelled by God to save the world. She was also impressed with Erza Scarlet's own backstory of leading her fellow slaves for freedom, which had plenty of parallels to her own life.
  • Jeanne heard that there was a male who shared her name, and found that person in Jaune Arc. She couldn't help by smile at the young man's dedication to be a genuine hero, and so decided to help the young lad with training along with his teammate Pyrrha.
  • Amazingly enough, Jeanne has zero proficiently in riding. This is despite her legend making her qualify for the Saber class, who are well known to be great riders. Lightning is trying to fix that by having her ride some of the Chocobos. Let's say the experience is comical at best.
    • She is also known to be mathematically challenged and illiterate. The latter was even used against her in her witch trial. She has since enlisted the help of many of ascended teachers of the Pantheon (and thus enrolling in the Elysium Academy) to teach her math and reading.
  • While Jeanne is well known to have never killed a person in battle, that doesn't mean she wouldn't order an entire town to be massacred if they didn't surrender to her army. This fact was a shock to many Gods, as they had never heard that part of her legend.
  • After her ascension, Jeanne was revealed to posess actual Holy Light power, making her very deadly to many of the evil-aligned Gods. She also has the ability to summon literal dragon knights to assist her.
  • There has been rumors that Jeanne actually posessed a mystic gauntlet that she used to fight evil demons in France. While it hasn't been confirmed, the Witchblade has responded to Jeaane's presence multiple times.
  • Absolutely hates Charles zi Britannia, reasons being that his conquering of other nations reminds her of the Englishmen who tried to conquer France. She also found his renaming any conquered people with a number degrading.
    • Incidently, Jeanne made a rival with C.C. after the former mistook her for a Jeanne d'Arc in her past that caused her to be burned at the stake.
  • Doesn't actually fight with her sword. Instead, she used her iconic banner, Luminosite Eternelle, to do battle, using it like a spear, but never spilling any blood. However, when the tide of battle is truly dire, she would use her holy sword, La Pucelle, which can emit giant flames. Those flames actually represent her burning at the cross, and once activated, Jeanne would lose her life, and would later have to be revived at the House of Life and Death.
  • As shown in her profile, Jeanne is a very odd member of the GUAL; she takes orders from YHVH, but despises most other members of the GUAL. She thinks Frollo is a disgrace to the cloth and hates how he uses God's name to meet his own perverse agenda. She sees Regime Superman as a disgrace towards the actual Superman, whom Jeanne looks up to as a inspiration to men's will. Pretty much the only people she can work with are Alexander Anderson and Metatron, and even that is complicated based on their personality.
    • Speaking of Anderson, compared to him, Jeanne has no problem with other religions as long as they love Gods. This actually makes her allies to both Asia and Xenovia, two Devils who still love God and pray to him, and Jeanne has sparred with the latter. This has made Jeanne even more distant to many of the religious-frenzied members of the GUAL and more at home with the GUAG.
  • Jeanne was there to greet the arrival of the Dragonslayer Siegfried, whom she has witnessed to be one of the top selfless heroes she has ever known. Though she was quite surprised that he got separated with the homunculus Sieg. Also Jeanne is one of the few that doesn't jokingly call him 'Sumanai', since she at least acknowledged that he did well against dragons.
    • On the other hand, despite their fierce battle, Jeanne has never hold anything bad against Atalanta. At least she's glad that Atalanta has regained her composure and she said that if they're to battle again, it would be on normal circumstances, not when one is not on the right mind. In addition, despite being on a more sound state of mind, she also didn't hold anything bad to Amakusa Shiro Tokisada.
  • At one point, Shimazu Toyohisa came knocking and eager to fight off Jeanne again, thinking that she's still amongst one of the Ends that he fought... only taking it back because this Jeanne isn't short-haired, and has big boobs, unlike how his memory served. Even Jeanne was confused because this Jeanne that Toyohisa described... didn't even match her Alter form.
  • At least some Gods are convinced that Jeanne isn't in the right mind for associating with YHVH. There are rumors that maybe YHVH is mind-controlling Jeanne to be part of the GUAL. Astolfo and a few others are convinced of these rumors and has set out to find out if it's true. As it turned out, it turned out to be true and surprisingly the revelation came from her Alter form (who hates God anyway, but she raised some good points). A lot of Servants managed to break Jeanne free from this, and finally, she realized that the God that answered her prayer in the temple of Salomon to help against Goetia sounded nothing like YHVH, and his crime and posing as the benevolent God due to their similar origin is unforgivable.
  • Was quite happy to find Bill S. Preston and Ted "Theodore" Logan in the Pantheon again, having recalled how they arrived to her in her time of need. Thanks to them, she has begun making training courses in the House of Combat.
  • Also has a spot in Authority Figures and the Main House.

  • Varying opinion from:
  • The Seven are a group created by Vought-American to serve as the world's biggest superhero team. They were the children of unknown poor women, people "the world wouldn't have missed", and were injected with huge doses of Compound V as fetuses. At birth, they each caused the deaths of their mothers with their superhuman powers and were raised by V-A scientists until they were ready to be presented to the world as the most powerful heroes on the planet.
    • In terms of marketing, public appearances and talk shows, the Seven were unbeatable, but the rare times V-A tried to make them do actual heroic deeds, it ended in disaster. On September 11th, 2001, the Seven tried to stop a diverted plane that a group of terrorists wanted to send against the World Trade Center, but their inexperience and lack of training led to a catastrophe. The end result was the death of one of their teammates and the plane crashing on the crowded Brooklyn Bridge.
    • From that day onwards, the Seven found themselves constantly tailed by the Boys, a black-ops group of super-powered agents who wanted to bring them to justice. One of them in particular, Billy Butcher, had a personal reason to go against Homelander. Then, after a clash between the two teams led to the deaths of the innocent nieces of Mallory on one side and of Lamplighter on the other, the groups reached a truce to prevent mutually assured destruction.
    • Years later, the Seven once again came into conflict with the Boys. When the Boys blackmailed the Seven, Jack From Jupiter lashed out by killing Terror, Billy Butcher's dog. Butcher subsequently retaliated by killing Jack. Shortly afterwards, Homelander enacted his plans to launch a superhuman coup which involved most of the world's superheroes staging a bloody takeover of the White House and Pentagon. During this time, the Deep chose to leave whereas A-Train was kidnapped by Butcher and ultimately killed Hughie in revenge for killing his girlfriend Robin and having tried to rape Starlight, the newest member of the Seven who had also started dating Hughie. When Queen Maeve and Starlight similarly tried to leave, they encountered Homelander and Maeve died fighting against him, allowing Starlight to escape. Later on, Homelander was confronted by Butcher in the White House, where it was revealed that Black Noir was a clone of Homelander and had deliberately framed him into becoming evil in order to carry out his purpose. After Black Noir managed to kill Homelander, he was mortally wounded by the Marines outside the White House and finally killed by Butcher.
  • The ascension of the Seven into the Pantheon was a somewhat notable event, as their temple, which looked like their satellite headquarters, suddenly appeared in the sky one day. Initially confused, the Seven were far from happy to see each other again. While Homelander and Black Noir started fighting, the rest of the team ran away from them as fast as they could to the ground below. Having recognized their headquarters, the Boys were among the first to arrive on the scene. Starlight had a happy reunion with Hughie, but it was suddenly interrupted by A-Train, who immediately attacked Hughie in revenge for him having previously killed A-Train. Fortunately, Barry Allen and Wally West arrived shortly after and quickly managed to restrain and subdue A-Train.
  • After Black Noir left and everyone managed to calm down, a brief standoff occurred between the Seven and the Justice League, who had been informed about the Seven by the Boys. Surprisingly, Homelander proposed a peaceful resolution, remarking that his past villainy was the result of Black Noir tricking him and that he didn't intend to misbehave within the pantheon. Although they didn't quite trust him, both the Justice League and the Boys accepted his offer of peace, although they warned him and his teammates that they would be keeping an eye on them.
  • Sometime later, reports came in of Homelander seemingly going on a rampage throughout the Pantheon, committing various violent acts with the intent to establish his dominance over others. After making sure that it wasn't Black Noir dressed as Homelander, it was initially suspected that Homelander had developed a Split Personality. However, it was discovered that the other members of the Seven (except Jack From Jupiter) had similarly undergone a change in personality. After a while, they all changed back to their regular selves and were dismayed to learn that no one had any idea how to prevent it from happening periodically.
  • Although the group generally dislike each other and rarely work together, they've occasionally teamed up when confronted by credible threats. Lex Luthor has occasionally targeted them, viewing them (though mostly Homelander and Black Noir) as potential threats and unworthy perversions of his actual enemies. The "Hero Killer" Stain has similarly targeted them for being fake heroes, although he's admitted that at least Starlight might be worth sparing.
  • Both Homelander and Black Noir have occasionally clashed with Regime Superman and Plutonian. While Black Noir is typically dismissed by Regime Superman as a maniac and is on amicable terms with Plutonian, their opinions of Homelander are a bit more mixed. High Councilor Kal-El has offered him the chance to redeem himself by joining forces, while Plutonian encourages him to embrace his crimes and return to being full-blown evil.
  • Exclusive to Homelander:
    • According to V-A's official story, Homelander was an alien, born on a distant, dying world. Still an infant, he was put in a space rocket and sent away from his home planet just before it exploded, and he reached Earth after a perilous voyage. Finally, he landed in the United States of America and was found by an elderly couple, who adopted him, named him John, and raised him while teaching him the highest and purest American values, such as patriotism, altruism, respect for truth and justice. As he grew up and his incredible alien powers manifested, John chose to protect and serve the planet that had given him a new home, and he became the Homelander, the most powerful and righteous superhero the world had ever known.
    • In reality, Homelander was the result of one of V-A's bio-engineering experiments, in which they had collected some genetic material from the captive Nazi superhuman, Stormfront, and injected it along with extreme amounts of Compound V into a fetus, the son of a mentally challenged woman. The baby grew much faster than normal, and in a matter of weeks, he burst out of his mother's womb, killing her. He was immediately taken in by V-A's scientists and grew up in a controlled environment, where people tested him and registered any new powers he manifested. Meanwhile, V-A's workers also instructed him on the character he would have to be for the public as soon as he was an adult, and thus created the myth of the Homelander, the greatest hero in history, a legend dressed in the American flag.
    • In public, The Homelander acts simply perfect, a hero who incarnates all the values and principles so missed in a consumerist society, and who reassures the American audience by dressing in the national symbols. In private, however, the leader of the Seven is a megalomaniac who indulges in any form of violence, from sexual extortion to unnecessary murder, just because he's able to. As powerful as he is, though, he still depends on Vought-American's money, as they fund his luxurious lifestyle, so he has to control himself, at least to a certain extent.
    • Due to his less than stellar reputation, few people are willing to openly associate with him. Homelander managed to bond with the comparably America-themed Comedian and Destroyman, the former similarly being an amoral Nominal Hero and the latter being a Smug Snake who pretends to be nice and honorable. Homelander also gets along with Gaston and Zapp Brannigan, both of whom are similarly vain and narcissistic.
    • His interactions with Superman and those like him tend to be rather awkward. In his regular personality, Homelander expresses regret for his past actions and tends to stay out of trouble. However, his alternate personality is not only a full-blown sociopath, but also a lot smarter and creative. As a result, the alternate version of Homelander frequently clashes with Justice League, either by openly fighting them or by plotting for ways to usurp and replace Superman. He's also actively opposed by Team America and the Broforce, who don't approve of his dishonest displays of patriotism.
    • Darkseid has repeatedly shown an interest in recruiting Homelander to work for him, with some even saying that Darkseid had a hand in the Seven's ascension for that specific purpose. While Homelander's regular personality hasn't shown any desire to join Darkseid, his alternate personality expressed an interest in a team-up, if only to further his own goals.
  • Exclusive to Queen Maeve:
    • The official backstory of Queen Maeve states that she was born the ruler of a fantastic world, known as the Netherworld and that she chose to use her incredible power to bring the peace and the harmony her world knew to Earth, which was hurt by violence and war. Arriving on Earth, she joined the Seven, becoming a feminist icon and without a doubt the most powerful woman on the planet, a true heroine who could be an inspiration for all girls.
    • Unlike her teammates, Maeve initially started out wanting to do some good. However, after the Seven's disastrous mishandling in trying to stop the 9/11 attacks, Maeve developed a deep hatred for her teammates and found two new life reasons that kept her busy: alcohol and sex. She had always some fan who willingly acted as her slave, while she hired bodybuilders to have orgies with them. All the while, she drank unbelievable amounts of gin, spending all of her time drunk and angry with the world.
    • Maeve is on reasonably amicable terms with Wonder Woman. While Diana initially distrusted Maeve and disapproved of her alcoholism and apathy, she warmed up to her after learning about the circumstances that led to Maeve becoming like that and how she sacrificed herself by fighting against Homelander in order to allow Starlight to safely escape. Maeve's alternate personality, being nicer and genuinely wanting to save people even though her experiences have left her jaded, tends to be a more active hero and frequently teams up with Diana.
    • Maeve can often be found in the House of Alcohol, trying out various drinks. She's managed to become drinking buddies with Bacchus, Cana Alberona and Tsunade, each of who often encourages her to lighten up and try to become more active as a hero once again.
  • Exclusive to Black Noir:
    • Even in the fictional story produced by Vought-American, Black Noir was regarded as a living mystery, a true enigma. A dark and troubled hero, he was said to come from the "darkest city" and had the craziest and most sadistic enemies, such as Sexface or Coagula (all paid by V-A like he was, of course). Even his powers were never truly explained, aside from him being immensely strong and supposedly a skilled pilot (the latter was later proven to be definitely false, as he immediately crashed everything he tried to pilot). He was a mystery even for his fellow "heroes" from the Seven, and nobody understood why he was considered part of the Big Three along with the Homelander and Queen Maeve if he never said a word and never did anything worthy of notice.
    • The reason behind Black Noir's presence within the Seven was ultimately revealed to be because he was a perfect clone of Homelander, developed using even more massive doses of Compound V, making him even more powerful than the most powerful man on Earth. Raised in solitude, away from the others, so that even Homelander didn't know about his existence, Black Noir was assigned with a very critical task: he was the contingency plan in case the Homelander became a liability for V-A and was instructed to kill him as soon as the company ordered him to. Although he certainly didn't lack the power to do so, there was something that V-A hadn't considered: spending years in close proximity of his target, even pretending to be his friend, and never being allowed to fulfill his life goal, drove him completely mad. His teammates believed him to be mute, but the truth was that he had a psycho smile on his face all the time, that didn't allow him to speak in an understandable way. He was irredeemably and totally crazy.
    • When his alternate personality takes control, Black Noir reverts back to being not only quiet and speechless but also generally Fights Like a Normal. This version is also on much better terms with Homelander, generally following his orders without displaying any inclinations to want to kill him.
    • Being a twisted and insane version of Batman, he quickly became allies with the Joker, the Batman Who Laughs and Kefka Palazzo. Although Joker finds Black Noir entertaining and has complimented him on how he gaslit Homelander into becoming a monster, even he finds some of the crimes that Black Noir committed, such as eating babies and raping women, to be "improper" and unfunny. On the other hand, the Batman Who Laughs views Black Noir as a worthwhile ally and only refrained from inviting him to join forces with the Dark Knights due to the fact that the Devastator would inevitably try to kill him. Similarly, Kefka admires Black Noir's destructive power and the two frequently team up to cause mayhem and chaos together.
    • Black Noir is on good terms with Bizarro, Vanitas, Albedo, Metal Sonic and Mechagodzilla due to being Homelander's evil clone. Bizarro, in particular, thinks of him as a kindred spirit. The others, while not clones themselves, can relate to him for wanting to eliminate his counterpart. This is especially true for Metal Sonic, who was similarly created to kill the one he's based on.
    • Unsurprisingly, Batman tends to keep a close eye on Black Noir, recognizing him as a corrupt version of himself. Through his cooperation with the Boys, Batman hopes to develop counter-measures against Black Noir for whenever they have to deal with him. Similarly, Black Noir's nature as Homelander's clone also drew the attention of Conner Kent, who pities Black Noir for the circumstances of his origin but nonetheless opposes him due to the monster that he has since become.
    • The fact that he's committed acts of rape and infanticide drew the interest of Molag Bal, who frequently tempts him into committing such acts even more. However, much to Molag Bal's frustration, Black Noir's single-minded focus on killing Homelander causes him to generally ignore anything else that wouldn't get him closer to that goal.
  • Exclusive to The Deep:
    • According to the official story published by Vought-American, The Deep was born in a submarine kingdom, an ancient and remote place of mystery and magic, but was raised on the surface world, becoming a man with two souls. As an adult, he became the King of the Seas but heroically chose to use his amazing powers to serve and protect the people of the United States of America (and the seas, sometimes). Somewhere down the line, he was cursed with an ancient Atlantean spell and, from that day on, he was forced to wear a deep-sea diver suit, otherwise, he could die breathing regular air.
    • Not one of the so-called Big Three, the Deep always remained somewhat far from the spotlight, having a decent fanbase but not enough popularity to become so attention-craving and spoiled as his teammates. Following the Seven's failed attempt to stop the 9/11 attacks, the Deep subsequently always refused to participate in similar missions and would always be against helping others, even if it was just a matter of helping a kitten down a tree. Apart from money issues, that usually put him against his teammates, he often acted as the voice of reason among a crowd of grown-up babies. However, he himself was not exactly innocent or pure, as he still participated in the annual Herogasm and joined forces with A-Train, Black Noir and Jack From Jupiter when they all nearly raped Starlight to "teach her a lesson".
    • The Deep frequently visits the House of Commerce, offering to sell his services to whoever wishes to hire him, although he tends to get annoyed when people assume that he's only useful around water. He's been hired by both Mr. Burns and Mr. Krabs to do commercials for their products and, occasionally, to serve as their bodyguard. However, the fact that neither of them pay him decently often irritates him.
    • Although far from heroic, the Deep does have a soft spot for marine life. As a result, he became enemies with Hexxus, whose desire to pollute for the hell of it would result in most of the marine life dying in a Polluted Wasteland.
    • Other rulers of the sea, such as Aquaman, Namor and King Triton, are unsure what to make of him. Although they don't really like him, the fact that he doesn't really do anything or threaten their authority typically results in them just ignoring him. However, whenever the Deep changes into his alternate personality, who is noticeably eviler, they tend to oppose him a lot more, although the fact that he's rather pathetic tends to make their confrontations rather one-sided.
  • Exclusive to Jack From Jupiter:
    • Supposedly an alien from Jupiter, the shallow and obnoxious Jack has only over sought a life of decadent hedonism. Despite his status as a long-time member of the world's most successful superteam, his lack of the star appeal of some of his colleagues, as well as their violent excesses or major powers, means he is seen as fairly unimportant both by his corporate sponsors and by the Boys. His teammates likewise see him as unimportant, as they are as self-absorbed as he is. Even the newer recruit A-Train, who Jack took under his wing to some extent, has little attachment to him. Although Jack is one of the more innocuous members of the Seven, he probably shouldn't be regarded as a decent individual, as he is aware of the violent crimes and fatal accidents they cause but shows no concern about them, even playing them down and treating these incidents like jokes.
    • Being regarded as even less important than the Deep, Jack From Jupiter generally isn't kept under surveillance. His only real ally is Desire of the Endless, although even they seem to mostly hang out with him for the sake of mercilessly teasing him. However, no matter how often Jack propositions them for sex, Desire always responds by saying that Wanting Is Better Than Having.
    • Due to having a fetish for pre-op transsexual women, Jack is often seen going after pretty much anyone who is intersex, transgender or otherwise ambiguous. Yubel, Crona, Poison and Chevalier d'Eon are among those who had to deal with shrugging off his advances.
    • Jack has faced opposition and criticism from both Martian Manhunter and Shazam. They not only frequently call him out on how he generally doesn't really do anything heroic and only cares about himself, but are especially appalled by the derisive comments he's made about certain groups of people. However, Jack typically just shrugs them off, remarking that he doesn't care about what they think of him.
  • Exclusive to A-Train:
    • The story printed by Vought-American tells that A-Train was once the sidekick and protege of Mister Marathon, struck by lightning and blessed with super-speed just like he was. In reality, he was just a young man who was injected with Compound V and by chance obtained the same powers of one of the Seven. As young as he was, he was assigned to Teenage Kix, a team of juvenile delinquents who spent their time between drugs and extreme sex orgies, but who were regarded by the public as young heroes tormented by existential problems. Following the death of Mister Marathon during the Seven's failed attempt to stop the 9/11 attacks, A-Train was asked by V-A to leave the Teenage Kix and join The Seven. A-Train didn't think about it twice and accepted the offer, ready to play with the big guys... and discovering that the rules were just the same as those of the little ones, with drugs and sex and more drugs being a constant in his days. Although his time was mainly filled with press conferences and public events, on some days he was also asked to do some heroic stuff, such as fighting supervillains and making photos for the police. during one of those days, he chased a supervillain to Scotland and knocked him out by throwing him against a wall at full speed, inadvertently reducing an innocent woman named Robin to a bloody pulp in the process.
    • A-Train has frequently clashed with other speedsters such as both Flashes and Sonic the Hedgehog, who were horrified to learn of how reckless he was with his powers and how he tried to rape Starlight. In his alternate personality, he develops a strong need to be the best and frequently tries to get his hands on various Super Serums throughout the Pantheon in an effort to defeat his rivals, which often results in him damaging himself more than them.
    • He's also enemies with Reverse-Flash and Zoom, although neither of them takes him seriously. They both view him as a corrupt and weaker version of The Flash, and fights between him and them often conclude with him getting seriously injured. However, A-Train is strongly determined to defeat them and intends to go after them after he manages to finally beat the Flashes.
  • Exclusive to Starlight:
    • Rebecca Anne "Annie" January was born in a very conservative Christian family, who knew since her birth that she was special, declaring her a gift from God to humanity. As her mother had been exposed to dangerous doses of Compound V during her pregnancy, Annie had powers, and the moment she was born, she blinded the woman with the bright light emanating from her body. As a teenager, she became Starlight and joined the Young Americans, a group of young superheroes sponsored by Vought-American collecting conservative and religious teens like her. One day, she was contacted to replace the Lamplighter, a recently deceased member of the Seven, and she accepted the offer, finally seeing the chance to be the heroine she had always dreamt to be. However, shortly after arriving at the Seven's headquarters, she was pressured by Homelander, Black Noir and A-Train into giving them oral sex if she really wanted the job. Immediately after the ordeal, Starlight escaped to the woman's bathroom, experiencing physical illness at the events that had occurred. She met Queen Maeve and tried to bond with her with feminine solidarity, but she found only a cold and detached insensibility on Maeve's side. Initially accepting her teammates' abuse, she grew to defend herself against their actions as well as refusing changes Vought-American tried to force upon her.
    • Being the only unambiguously heroic member of the Seven, Starlight was overjoyed to discover that the heroes in the Pantheon were genuinely nice people who shared her ideals. She's on very good terms with Power Girl, Supergirl, Starfire and Captain Marvel, each of whom respects her ability to remain a good person despite the cynical nature of her world.
    • She was surprised to learn that there was someone else in the Pantheon named Starlight, and even more so when she discovered that the other Starlight was a talking pony. After getting to know Starlight Glimmer, Starlight was happy to learn about how she had turned good and seeks to atone for her past transgressions. The two have occasionally been seen hanging out together.
    • She has managed to bond with other rape victims such as Casca, Queen Medb and Mitsuko Souma, who feel bad that she was forced to have sex just so she could join her team and do heroic acts. They quickly became enemies with Homelander, Black Noir and A-Train (especially the latter two) and frequently come to Starlight's aid whenever she ends up opposing them.

    Golbez 
Golbez, Great Herald of the Sith Lord (Golbeza, Theodor(e) Harvey, The Man in Black, the Thaumaturge, the Warlock)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/golbezdnt.png
Golbez in The After Years 
  • In the early days of the Pantheon, Golbez was called to the Pantheon by Chaos to serve the GUAE, and was given his current title for his similarities to Darth Vader, including familial relations with the hero. Considering his heart's weakness and ability to be summoned a sign of his unworthiness of redemption, Golbez has pledged himself to the forces of evil again, but hopes their efforts will fail. In his heart, he wishes to be a force for good, but considers himself unworthy of standing alongside the more noble and selfless heroes.
  • Is rumored to be working with Kain Highwind to undermine Melkor's position. Kain has spoken in hushed tones of Golbez considering their past together, if he's being secretive or just prefers not to talk about it is unknown for now.
  • Pointedly bans his brother Cecil from visiting him more than once a week, as when he first arrived Cecil heard about his servitude to evil and tried to convince his brother to cast off his past and return to the light. Golbez got annoyed with Cecil after the seventh visit in two days and zapped him with a Cosmic Ray as a hint to let him deal with these matters on his own.
  • Though not the best of friends, he and Darth Vader have come to an understanding with each other. Vader respects Golbez's admirable efforts to emulate him, and they share a mutual sympathy for the other's struggles with their pasts and their families. However, Vader has warned that if Golbez has not chosen a definitive side when Melkor's forces march, he will choose for him. Golbez has not been reached to discover his response.
  • Sympathises with Specter Knight since he was Forced into Evil and gave up his chance for freedom in order to save his friend's son.
  • He may be resigned to following the ways of evil (well, not anymore), but Golbez often offers sound advice to those who'll listen.
  • However, as a result of certain events, Golbez went missing for a long while. Incidentally, this was during the time Cecil and company minus Edward were transferring Houses. Eventually, once the final stages of the move were done, he finally returned on the Lunar Whale with two surprises.
    1. He found and brought back FuSoYa, thus reuniting them to join as heralds for Cecil, Kain, Rydia, Rosa, and Pantheon newcomer Edge. The fruits of his "expedition" to the Red Moon and the fates of the Lunarians and Zeromus however remain unknown, and Golbez refuses to elaborate on the details. FuSoYa has nothing to say, either.
    2. With the establishment of the Ministry of Atonement, after seeing who its members are, and given the events of The After Years, Golbez finally decided to cut ties with Lord Chaos and the GUAE, and join his brother's side for good, much to his joy.
  • Sometime after his solid Heel–Face Turn, he received a visit from one of the Warriors of Cosmos; Zidane Tribal. When he asked the monkey-tailed hero what his business was, he got a strange request. To help in redeeming Kuja as well, or at least keep the other Warriors of Chaos from preventing him from doing so. He had managed to reach out to his "brother" back in Gaia before he died, and he doesn't understand why Kuja's forgotten. In his time with the GUAE, Golbez managed to know why thanks to hearing Kefka gloat about it, and decided he would see what he can do. As for the truth, Golbez decided it would be best if Zidane heard Kuja's motives from the man(?) himself.

    Heather Brown/Spinnerette 
Heather Brown, Great Herald of the Web-Slinger (Spinnerette, Spinny, Black Widow)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1540755232_2018_10_2901.jpg
Spinnerette, back-to-back with her girlfriend Mecha Maid
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her extra arms
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Possesses Four Extra Arms And Can Multitask With Them Super Strength, Ambiguously Bi, Badass Bookworm, hides her extra arms under a fat suit, Ditzy Genius, Immune to Drugs of the Mind-Altering Kind, Wrong Genre Savvy, Willing To Cross The Line In Regards To Certain Dangerous Villains
  • Domain(s): Spiders, Mutants, Heroism
  • Heralds: Sahira (her roommate), Marilyn Seong/Mecha Maid (her girlfriend), "Silver Age" Spinnerette and 90's Spinnerette (her AU counterparts)
  • High Priest: Kouichi Haimawari/"The Crawler"
  • Followers: Haruyuki Arita/Silver Crow, Rick Riker/the Dragonfly, Stealth The Hedgehog, Brad Armstrong/"Arachnaman", The Brown Widow
  • Allies: Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Miles Morales, Marinette Dupain-Cheng/Ladybug, Adrien Agreste/Cat Noir, Tsuyu Asui/Froppy, Spider-Gwen, most other superheroes, Benjamin Franklin, Ellen Ripley
  • Enemies: Most supervillains, Roose and Ramsay Bolton, Amon, William Stryker
  • Opposes: Amanda Waller
  • Spinnerette arrived in the Pantheon as a result of a dimensional portal that appeared out of nowhere in her world. As she soon got her bearings, she decided to explore as she swung around. This quickly drew the attention of the Pantheon's residents, as there were very few who travel by swing with spider silk.
    • Spider-Man, currently on patrol with the Miraculous holders at the time, was immediately alerted and he decided he would come over as soon as he can; he had to make sure the newcomer wasn't one of his many Opposite Sex Clones (he knows his clone drama). Spidey eventually bumped into Spinnerette before long. To be exact, she collided with Cat Noir while he was making a pole vault jump with his staff. Spider-Man and Ladybug quickly went over to the rooftop they landed on and shortly identified the newcomer. As soon as she saw the Webslinger, she was immediately overwhelmed with excitement and started to fangirl over him, bombarding him with questions and shaking both of his arms with all of her hands. He eventually came to realize that his (and all of Marvel and DC Comics' deities') exploits are works of fiction in her world.
    • Their reverie was interrupted by a nearby sighting of one of Kite-Man's gliders. Spinnerette, after being told that Kite-Man was a villain, fired a web at the rider's leg, snagging it and reeling him in. It turned out not to be Kite-Man himself, but Doctor Octopus, who had a sack of stolen goods with him. Seeing he got caught, he quickly prepared to fight his archnemesis and the younger start-ups.
    • Unfortunately for Doc Ock, not only was he (barely) outnumbered, the newcomer seemed to have a basic idea on how to fight him and they were almost able to take him down. During the battle, he tried to escape by grabbing Car Noir's wrist, which already had Cataclysm activated, and brought it down on the floor, caving it in right as Ladybug used her Lucky Charm to summon a item for the situation. One use of that item, a surviving generator, a piece of rebar, Ock's goggles, Spidey's right web shooter, and Spinny's Bottom Lefty, the villain was taken down and tightly secured for the authorities to take him away. As they did so, one of them noted just how much like Spider-Man Spinnerette is. While the Miraculous holders left to keep their identities secret since they were about to transform back, Spidey got an idea.
    • After a meeting and appeal to (with Ladybug's help) with the Court of the Gods and an explanation on how godhood works in the Pantheon, Spinnerette accepted a spot in the Pantheon as the Spider-Man Send-Up.
  • Shoots her webs from her lower back, not her butt, as much as Boomtick insists otherwise. She's taken to knitting with it, and has some ready in case she needs to go over and have it repaired.
    • Speaking of her webs, to keep them strong and to keep herself supplied, Heather takes a lot of protein drinks. This has garnered the attention of Akihiko Sanada and he approves. He's also invited her to spar with him (as Spinnerette) one day. She took him up on that offer, and got the privilege of seeing a Persona in action.
  • Is actually a blonde; the brown hair is a wig for maintaining her Secret Identity. As for how she hid her extra arms in her world, she has a fat suit for that. Sure, it's no longer necessary given her identity is now somehow public (at least to those who care), but she's grown used to not showing her GIRL ABS.
  • Isn't unfamiliar with all jibes pertaining to her armpits and the need to keep them clean. She's heard quite a lot of them.
  • Is familiar with the idea of just living the normal life without superheroics despite having powers. Her roommate Sahira is like that.
    • Speaking of her, Heather is wary of Rogue, who not only can copy powers, she just needs a touch, and the recipient gets weakened on top of that.
  • Has difficulty trusting Stan Lee, as one multiversal villain called The Editor took on his appearance and rebooted her universe (though it thankfully did no lasting damage).
  • Having had an archnemesis who shared the same super name as her (preceded her, actually) who became a drider, she's well experienced in dealing with the likes of them, especially Arachne once she learned enough about her.
  • Was excited to meet Benjamin Franklin, but was shortly confused when he didn't remember her, in which she realized this was probably a different version. When she told him of her world's Ben Franklin, he couldn't help but be amused, and wished that had happened to him.
  • Doesn't like the art style of manga, though she has no issues with the deities from such series.
  • If it comes to really vile folks with regenerative powers, she will not hesitate to thoroughly burn the body, just like she (and a nearby security guard) did Colonel Glass. She's garnered the favor of Ellen Ripley for this.
  • Isn't fond of the idea that Differently Powered Individuals need to be government-controlled; she's had enough of that from General Evescroft. Bruce Banner can understand the felling, having had a similar general in Thaddaeus "Thunderbolt" Ross who had the same problem. So does Captain Atom, who has also had a similar "problem general" in Wade Eiling.
  • Having had to deal with someone who wanted to kill a doctor trying to cure a terminal illness (and therefore doom all his patients who have it), and had the gall to call it an act of mercy, Spinnerette has disdain for any such folks who have the same goals as that "Adrastea". The fact that she was running on Insane Troll Logic doesn't help.

Tyranitar, Divine Representation of Those who Emulate Godzilla (The Armor Pokémon, Bangiras)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-248tyranitar_323.png
Mega Tyranitar 
  • Intermediate God (Greater God as Mega Tyranitar)
  • Symbol: The armor plate on its stomach
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Gender: Male
  • Ability: Sand Stream (both when in regular and Mega-evolved forms)
  • Moveset: Crunch, Stone Edge, Earthquake, Dragon Dance
  • Portfolio: Godzilla copies, Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon, insolent behavior, being a Rock- and Dark-type, overprotective parents, creating sandstorms wherever it goes, slow strength, having a ridiculously large movepool, the ability to use a Mega Stone
  • Domains: Earth, Destruction, Power, Defense, Strength
  • Followers: Tyrannomon, Electrogor, Reptar
  • Allies: Godzilla, Rodan, Tyrantrum, Groudon, Excadrill, Toph, Crixalis, Darunia, Ash, Bowser (when in a good mood)
  • Rivals: Metagross, Hydreigon, the Deviljho
  • Enemies: Team Rainbow Rocket, Hunter J, King Ghidorah, Volcarona, The House of Combat, anything specializing in one of its weaknesses, Rayquaza, SpaceGodzilla, Ozai, Relius Clover
  • Opposed by: Geb
  • Tyranitar, the Armor Pokemon. The final form of Larvitar, it is the rare "psuedo-legendary" of Johto and one of only two psuedo-legendaries not to be a dragon. It is so powerful that it can bring down a whole mountain to make its nest. The Pokemon is typically ferocious and destructive, however it has a sweet spot for its young.
  • Heavily influenced by the King of Monsters himself, in appearance, temperament and even some of the moves it can learn like Hyper Beam. Not that it uses said move much, being physically oriented. Whenever Godzilla is busy, Tyranitar fills in for him.
  • Few can stand being around Tyranitar, as he always brings a sandstorm with him. Some wished that he had Unnerve instead. Those who can resist it often use it to their advantage. As such, it often gets into fights with Rayquaza, who can nullify the sandstorm. He has no problems with Groudon and Kyogre, however.
  • Gaara ultimately picked Tyranitar as his partner due to the Sand Stream ability benefiting his power over sand. Toph, due to her ability to earthbend, also came to like Tyranitar, as did Crixalis. However the House of Nature is generally wary of Tyranitar since even as a Larvitar it was able to eat a mountain, and its rampages lead to maps having to be re-arranged. Geb finds it particularly annoying that Tyranitar likes to eat and demolish his mountains.
  • It would like to remind people that it is not the same thing as Godzilla, but its still a terrible idea to use nuke against him. It also points out that it doesn't like to get wet and would rather avoid the House of Water & Moisture. Ironically it can be taught Surf, possibly referencing how Godzilla can traverse the sea.
  • Due to filling in for Godzilla, Tyranitar has had to tussle with both King Ghidorah and MechaGodzilla. While the sheer villainy of Ghidorah is something Tyranitar can't tolerate, he is on better terms with the Ghidorah-like orochi and Pokemon Hydreigon. The two enjoy a rivalry and worthy foe relationship compared to the hatred between Godzilla and Ghidorah.
  • Sometimes hangs out with Tyrantrum, though most dragons don't care much for Tyranitar since "he's not a real dragon". Tyranitar prefers a rivalry with Metagross, as it is the other non-Dragon psuedo-legendary. And they both share a weakness to each other, so its a challenge for both. He has been found competing with the Deviljho, another Godzilla copy,
  • He and Volcarona despise each other, but the latter is more bitter. Tyranitar has amazing durability, on par with Greed, but what sets him back is his weakness to a lot of things, though he can brush off everything else. For this Stays FAR away from the House of Combat, for as its typing makes it surprisingly weak to being punched really hard.
  • One of the few it can trust with his young is Ash, due to him finding Larvitar and nursing it back to safety. Even if it is a Dark type, Tyranitar is a doting father. It loathes Relius Clover and Ozai for being the complete opposite, which Ozai finds rather problematic as Rock beats Fire. Due to being good parents and them being ferocious beasts, Tyranitar gets along with Bowser whenever he's not in full villain mode.

    Zavok 
Zavok, God of Bowser Imitators
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zavoktsr.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A red and black hexagon with a Z in the middle
  • Theme Songs: The Deadly Six Theme (orchestral version), Battle With Zavok
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: King Koopa Copy, Aliens Are Bastards, Head of the Deadly Six, Who Have Z in Their Name, Red and Black and Evil All Over, Spikes of Villainy, Pretty Spry for a 148 Year Old Guy, Based On Oni, Apparently a Spirited Competitor, Sometimes Shows Up in Olympic Sports, Fricking Laser Beams, Evil Sounds Deep
  • Domains: Aliens, Conquest, Evil, Horned Beings, Magnetism
  • Heralds: The rest of the Deadly Six
  • Followers: Turtonator, Gruntilda, Susie
  • Allies: Bowser, The Koopalings, Frieza, Ragyo Kiryuin, The Martians
  • On good terms with: Infinite
  • Rivals: Bowser, Black Doom, Magneto, Gibril and Asroc
  • Enemies: Sonic, Dr. Eggman, Tails, most other Sonic the Hedgehog characters, Sigma, Wreck-It Ralph, Iroque, Mario, Babidi, Squidward Tentacles, the House of Mind Control
  • The Deadly Six are a bunch of Zeti miscreants, and leading them is the strong and intimidating Zavok. He and his crew were forced to obey Dr. Eggman due to the painful effects of the Cacophonic Conch for his world domination schemes. That is until Sonic broke the Conch, and he swore vengeance by taking the energy of the Earth to empower his crew. Fortunately, he was defeated by Sonic and crew.
  • Zavok takes a lot of inspiration from Bowser. He's mean, red, demonic-looking and has a wacky yet dangerous and colorful crew. They also fight in similar fashion. For what it's worth, even if Eggman is allied with one and foes with another, the two have a good relationship. Bowser thinks he does it better, so they're rivals along with allies.
  • Mario ended up mistaking Zavok for a new Bowser enforcer, which pissed Zavok off. Not because Mario went on to fight him, but because even if he likes Bowser he's nobody's pawn. Amusingly enough even Zavok isn't immune to Go-Karting with Bowser as he was part of the 2016 Rio Olympics in Boxing. He's Surprisingly Passionate in it.
  • As a Zeti, Zavok has the power to manipulate magnetic fields. This gives him the power to control electronics and things made out of metal. Magneto wasn't impressed by his abilities, and when Zavok tried to prove himself against the mutant his magnetic abilities were completely outclassed. This has only encouraged the Zeti to improve himself in this field. Due to these abilities, the House of Technology keeps an eye on him.
  • His power over magnetic fields also had him become rivals with Gibril and Asroc. The former has power over metal and can use the iron within the blood to form weapons while the latter uses string from his fingertips to grant control over machines, no matter how old or broken down. They similarly wanted to improve their already amplified power by taking the Zeti on.
  • The majority of Sonic deities consider him an enemy, though some are not. Black Doom considers the Deadly Six to be competition in the aliens trying to conquer Sonic's world, though is willing to work alongside him against Sonic or Eggman as his magnetokinesis is useful. Infinite has a more positive relationship as part of his plans to get back at Sonic, Shadow and all who stand in his way...at least when Infinite's psychosis doesn't get in the way.
  • Has a deep contempt for mind control of any form, be it for good, evil or whatever. As such, he opposes the Indigo Tribe and House of Mind Control. Babidi decided he was ripe for controlling. While Majin Zavok was dangerous, one of the heroic Dragonball deities broke the wizard's concentration long enough for Zavok to regain some control and put his hands on Babidi's throat.
  • Notes that like him Ralph is a King Koopa Copy, but since Ralph is a good guy even if he's a bad guy they usually don't get along. However he is fine with testing strength for fun or going to Bad A-Thons, as he has some respect for Ralph's strength. Zavok has no love for Squidward due to his painfully bad clarinet music, which reminds him of the pain the Cacophonic Conch put the Deadly Six through.
  • Sides with evil aliens as part of his plan to conquer and/or destroy Sonic's world. For this, he has allied with the Martians and Frieza. He also considers Ragyo Kiryuin useful in his ambition to drain the Earth and become powerful. Most of all, Zavok is hoping to find some way of introducing the rest of the Deadly Six into the pantheon. He seems to enjoy visiting the House of Demons since the Deadly Six take some influence on Oni and demons, and he looks demonic.
  • Once allied, and was later controlled by Sigma in perhaps his most ambitious conquest scheme yet. He doesn't have good memories of this and has sworn to crush the Reploid's skull over and over.

    Bigweld 
Bigweld, God of Discount Disneys
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bigweldshow_0.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The emblem in the middle of his chest
  • Theme Song: Bigweld's Factory
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Mr. Alt Disney, Honest Corporate Executive, Being A Giant Ball/Wheel, Approves of Rodney x Cappy, Big Good, Reasonable Authority Figure, Likes Big Robot Girls, Gadgeteer Genius, Cool Old Guy
  • Domains: Invention, Robots, Big Dreamers, Corporate Executives, Businesses
  • High Priest: Joey Drew
  • Followers: William Borise, Bolivar Trask, Howard Stark
  • Allies: Dr Light and his family, Walt Disney, Roboking, N, Mei Hatsume, Charlie Bucket, Willy Wonka, Emmet Brickowski, Stan Lee, Lewis Anthonio, Primus, Jenny Wakeman, Optimus Prime, Phineas and Ferb, the Iron Giant, SCP-516, Baymax, Astro Boy, Alisa Bosconovitch, WALL-E and EVE
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: The Grand United Alliance of Machines
  • Enemies: Mega Man big bads but especially Lumine, Dr Eggman, SKYNET (evil robots in general), Mom, Mr Burns, Looten Plunder, Morris, Ghetsis Harmonia
  • Opposes: Cave Johnson
  • Bigweld is the founder and original head of Bigweld Industries, the largest and most influential corporation in Robot City. A visionary and big dreamer, his company sells robotic gadgets and spare parts. His two catchphrases are "see a need, fill a need" and "you can shine no matter what you're made of". Unfortunately his company was taken over by a greedy executive who only cares about money, but Bigweld managed to get back in the game.
  • While it's a different industry, Bigweld's personality, TV presence and ambitions were molded from Walt Disney. Naturally they get along because of their similar personalities. He also gets along with Disney characters Lewis Anthonio, and Phineas and Ferb. Mainly because they are optimistic inventors and go-getters.
  • Doesn't take any accusation that Walt Disney is an anti-semite well, in part because his voice actor is Jewish. Sometimes he can be found conversing with Stan Lee, due to being a Cool Old Guy that helped to pioneer and industry. He also likes Willy Wonka for the passion he has in his job and his ambition at making the candy industry a great place.
  • The world he comes from doesn't seem to have any humans, leading to some wondering what happened or even if there were any. Mainly the GUAM seeing potential in such a world. Bigweld doesn't like a lot of the members even if he is a robot, but believes he can serve as a reformer and Morality Pet to make the cause of robot power a positive one. For this, he works with Roboking to give a moral core to the GUAM.
  • Completely agrees with Optimus Prime that freedom is the right of every sentient being. It doesn't matter if you're an old or new robot, organic, metallic or whatever, it's up to you to decide your own destiny. For this, he hates SKYNET for both committing genocide on organic beings and enslaving robot kind and preventing them from thinking too much.
  • Works closely with Dr Light due to his benevolent visions for robots, and being an expert inventor who thinks of the best of humanity due to his pacifistic nature. He is saddened that his Evil Former Friend, Dr Wily, won't put his grudges aside and try to atone. Out of the Mega Man villain, he takes the most umbridge with Lumine, as the Maverick's belief that old robots should be scrapped for the new model is antithetical to Bigweld's own beliefs.
  • Was disgusted by how Ghetsis Harmonia exploited the dreams of N, his own foster son, to achieve his own ambitions of conquering Unova. He is trying to encourage N to achieve his own dreams and be free of any control. Also, while he doesn't hate Cave Johnson, he dislikes his amoral For Science! attitude.
  • No fan of grubby corporate bigwigs either. He naturally opposes the likes of Mr Burns, Looten Plunder and Morris. However it's Mom he takes the most offense with, due to having a massive monopoly over robot kind and the fact she has nothing against terminating overclocked robots so they don't learn to do it to themselves and prevent needing her upgrades, or terminating defective models to preserve her image and brand name.
  • Admires Charlie Bucket, due to his good heart and Rags to Riches story. He seems fond of fellow inventor Mei Hatsume, and completely agrees with Emmet Brickowski's optimistic look on the world. As a rule, Bigweld generally gets along with various benevolent robots in the pantheon.
  • Intrigued by the Robosexual relationship between Kosmo and Nova. Likes WALL-E and EVE's relationship as well, but is concerned by the fact the world they lived in was ruined by rampant consumerism and pollution for centuries, until humanity managed to come back and restore life to it. This has made Bigweld more environmentally conscious.
  • While he likes Alisa Bosconovitch for being a kind-hearted android who does what she is purposed to do, he doesn't like the fact she is serving Jin Kazama for committing mass genocide, even if he does it for a reason like awakening Azazel and to hopefully destroy him to erase his Devil Gene that lurks around him.

    Endermen 
Endermen, Godly Mantles of The Pale One
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/minecraftenderman_633.png
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: Their purple eyes glowing in the dark, which you really shouldn't of looked at
  • Alignment: True Neutral

  • Opposed by/Opposes: Steve, The Houses of Water & Moisture and Fire & Heat, Finn Mertens, S.A.T.8
  • Banned from: The House of Craft
  • Annoyed by: Lumpy Space Princess
  • The world of Minecraft is home to a wide array of dangers when the sun goes down in the Overworld. From typical zombies, skeletons, and giant spiders to the ever-so infamous Creepers and persistent Phantoms. Thankfully, most of these creatures immolate by the time the sun rises on the world once more. Emphasis on most. The undead mobs that spawn are Weakened by the Light. Not included in that category are the aforementioned Creepers and the Endermen: Tall, thin creatures hailing from The End, a landmass floating above what can only be described as the void itself. They're nice enough, at worst picking up and taking blocks wherever they go, but all that comes flying out the window when someone looks directly at their eyes. Those unfortunate to do so will will soon wish they hadn't, assuming if the shrieking beforehand hadn't made them question their life choices already.
  • Their presence was made known when a haunting of Endermen in the dead of midnight came by some of the more rural areas in the Pantheon and started causing a ruckus with their habit of taking blocks with them and placing them somewhere else. When onlookers tried to get them to cut it out one of them gazed upon their purple eyes and that particular Enderman made quick work of that person. The remaining residents decided to just book it and hide out instead of dealing with them. Endermen have since then appeared more frequently in the Pantheon since then.
  • Steve doesn't seem to be all that fond of them, what with them rearranging blocks whenever they can and generally making a mess of things. Likewise, the Endermen know he has a history of looking at them in the eye intentionally. Ultimately, it isn't an overtly hostile relationship like with Steve and the Creepers and the two generally leave each other alone until one provokes the other. And speaking of Creepers, they don't seem to mind them and the relationship is reciprocated. Then again, messing with them is a pretty quick and easy day to have your day ruined so it might be more so common sense that the Endermen leave them alone.
    • The House of Craft share Steve's opinoin have outlawed them from coming in and ruined whatever works are in progress. Granted, imposing a ban on what are essentially Planeswalkers isn't quite effective as anyone would of hoped but they are unwelcome regardless. Though, there are some people who are curious as to what kind of art they could make if let loose with some materials.
  • As their Pantheonic title would indicate they conceptually take inspiration from the one and only Slender Man. The actual relationship between each other is a complete unknown and is constantly debated upon, though considering this concerns the Slender Man it should probably come as to no surprise. Usually, gods and goddesses either come the conclusion its of either some sort of reverence towards the Faceless One. Maybe it's plain reverence, maybe it's intertwined with kinship or fear or even some combination of that and a bunch of other feelings. Who can say, really?
  • If aggravated, either making eye contact or otherwise, get ready for a fight. While their lanky frame may not suggest it they are capable of taking hits and, in turn, dish it out right back. Though their main ability is their ability to make use of teleporting. Not only is it hard to get a chain of attacks on them but it also generally makes the use projectiles against them also not recommended, especially so since most seem to bounce off them anyways. And to top it all off they're pretty hard to shake away. However, everything has a weakness. While they don't spontaneously combust in broad daylight (at least nowadays) they are less dangerous there anyways and can still can be set on fire, teleporting all over the place in sheer panic. Their more common and famous weakness, however, is water. No matter the source, be it from large bodies of water or from rain itself, Endermen are unable to stand it and will immediately warp away upon contact. Logically, being hit by snowballs also hurt due to being made of water.
    • It is, for this very reason, they tend to stray from the Nature's Houses of Water & Moisture, Ice & Cold, and to a much lesser extent Fire & Heat (they can still spawn in the Nether, you see). That, and they don't really like those associated with elements. The Endermen as a whole appear to have it out for all Water-Type Pokemon and Monsters affiliated with the Water Element. A special enmity goes out to the Plesioth, however, as the Piscine Wyvern has a habit of taking potshots of torrents at them whenever it can, oftentimes in the safety of a lake or river. Its questionable radius of attack also seem to bypass their teleportion quite a bit too.
  • Aside from water and fire being as tall as they are they logically can't go places that cannot fit their tall height. And they can't crouch down. S.A.T.8 was able to exploit this when she was doing some errands in some forest with Contender. It grew dark far faster than she anticipated and after losing Contender she ended up coming in the vicinity of a haunting of Endermen. The messy-haired doll ended up angering one of them somehow and she fled into a crevice of a mountain just big enough to house her but small enough that the otherworldy creature couldn't do any harm. Contender ended up finding her partner and bailed her out soon after.
  • Upon being slain they drop Ender Pearls which are essential to crafting Eyes of Ender to be able to travel to their dimension of The End and battle the Ender Dragon... If you can find an underground stronghold that is. And good luck with tracking those down. Aside from using the Eyes of Ender you're pretty much on your own. Good dig it up yourself. Even still, they are sought after by prospecting adventurers and other curious folk.
    • On that note, the Ender Pearls serve another purpose: They can also be thrown to teleport like how the Endermen do though the process causes damage to the user. In addition, it is also possible to die from said teleportation through embedding oneself in the terrain. So if you want to live just, you know, don't do that. On occasion pests called Endermites will appear when using an Ender Pearl and due to their hostility one must also be mindful of them as well. Interestingly, Endermen aren't at all fond of them either and will actively try to kill them on sight. Hatred for pests is a universal feeling is our guess.
  • Endermen as a whole appear to have an understanding of SCP-096's plight with being looked at. Is it as extreme as The Shy Guy himself? Unless there's sightings of them demonstrating feats akin to when it's enraged then no, not quite. Still, they have all collectively agreed to not in any way gaze upon its face and have since kept their distance.
  • In one special instance Finn encountered an Enderman while traveling home on Mr. Pig. Having aggravated it and not wanting to incur its wrath Finn was forced to stand still and stare at the ground for hours as it loomed overhead. Thankfully, it did lose interest eventually thanks to the intervention of Lumpy Space Princess just talking to it, not really wanting to put up with her any further. It ended up going after Ice King instead after nabbing Finn's pumpkin after blundering into it.
  • At some point there was quite the boon of comparisons between them and the Dahaka of all beings. It started out with the obvious: Two dark and ominous entities that are generally feared by presence alone. Then various gods started drawing towards other comparable characteristics like their weaknesses towards water in spite of their danger and the fact neither of them are from the normal world as anyone knows it. Granted, the Dahaka is an agent of the timeline and its ensured inevitably of fate so there might be little if at all connection towards each other. As far as anyone understands travelling across dimensions doesn't quite violate anything time-wise. But it makes you think.
  • When Steve was invited to the fifth Master Hand tournament, he brought along not just Alex, but also a zombie and an Enderman to fight along. No one knows how the arrangement was handled, and no party is willing to speak of it.

  • Joe is a giant gorilla in Africa who was found by a girl named Jill when they were both young. She raised the gorilla as if he were a surrogate sibling. Years later, they were contracted by a man named O’Hara to bring Joe into the United States (he was brought either to a nightclub or a zoo habitat, depending on the version), where he became a sensation towards the crowd. However, an incident led Joe to escape the facility he’s in and ramage throughout the city, leading authorities to condemn Joe to death. However, Jill and her friends would help rescue him and get him out of the country. After another incident where he had to rescue some kids (either from a burning orphanage or a collapsing Ferris wheel, depending on the version), the law was convinced of Joe’s nobility and innocence and allowed him to go back to his native habitat with his friends.
  • Reports of a giant gorilla on the loose have circulated among various Pantheon hunters and explorers, with several convinced that the ape is King Kong. They decided to embark on a journey to find that ape. Only when finally confronting it did they realize that the ape isn’t Kong since he is fairly smaller. The ape didn’t like the sight of the guns that they brought, which prompted him to attack the group, though some of the members brought lassos in an attempt to rope the ape. Eventually, a young girl named Jill stepped into the scene, trying to convince the expedition team that Joe doesn’t mean any harm and it’s just that he doesn’t like it when people hurt him. It took a while to decide, but they decided to try to bring him to the Main House to grant him godhood with Jill agreeing to serve as his herald.
    • One thing that somewhat held the Main House back, however, is the fact that there are two versions of the character: the one from the 1949 film and the one from the 1998 remake. They were even with some of the differences between the two Joes, such as how Joe met Jill Youngnote . An evaluation was made that the Joe that resides the Pantheon is a composite of his two different selves, with memories of his 1949 self (notably his memories of performing in the nightclub and rescuing several children from a burning orphanage) and his 1998 self (notably his encounters with Strasser). Thanks to Pantheon magic, he is also able to alternate between the two forms.
  • It didn’t take long before he would meet up with the Eight Wonder of the World himself, King Kong. Kong appreciates seeing another giant ape to be friends with. Joe, for his part, looks up to Kong as a big brother of sorts (in more ways than one). That, and Joe’s relationship with Jill reminds Kong of his relationship with Ann Darrow (though Jill and Joe’s is more sibling-like). Caesar also finds himself hanging out with Joe more often than not, if because he reminds the chimp of his gorilla allies and because he appreciates the gorilla’s kindness. He also gets along with Donkey Kong and the other members of the Kong crew.
    • Winston is pleased to see another gorilla arrive in the Pantheon. When the two apes first crossed paths, Joe was surprised to see a gorilla like Winston who is intelligent enough to use advanced technology. Not that that prevented them from being friends as both bonded over the fact that they were raised by humans who treat them as surrogate relatives.
    • It turns out that he isn’t the only Kong-inspired ape in the Pantheon. He would sometimes spar with Blizzard and Chaos of the Draconians, but otherwise is on decent terms with them. Less so with George of the Rampage Wrecking Crew given that ape’s own destructive tendencies being a contrast to Joe’s mostly Gentle Giant nature. Sometimes, Joe gets roped by Rajang, a gorilla-like beast, to challenge him to a fight, with the latter usually being the one who would initiate it.
    • However, there are several primates that he doesn’t get along with. From Caesar, Joe was made aware of Koba, who is notable for his hatred for humans and his cruelty towards other apes for his own sake. Dr. Zaius is also disappointed with Joe as he dislikes how a gorilla with a fairly incredible size like Joe could be tamed by a mere human girl. Also hates Gorilla Grodd for his desire to kill all humans out of racism or his cruelty towards other gorillas. Mojo Jojo has tried to convince him several times into working with him, but Joe makes it clear that he doesn’t want to associate himself with a villainous chimpanzee like Mojo.
  • Both Steve Irwin and Eliza Thornberry are interested in Joe and are pretty protective of him. While Steve is primarily known for being the Crocodile Hunter, he is fascinated with Joe’s size and friendly personality. And Eliza is known to speak fluent animal, so she wouldn’t have a problem getting up close with Joe and serving as his translator. That, and the fact that she previously had an encounter with gorillas when they helped her and her sister get their commvee out of a muddy river bank. Jill, for her part, entrusts them in taking care of him whenever she isn’t around.
  • Given that he lost his mother to Strasser, he usually avoids the House of Hunters, but one particular resident in the sub-house that he doesn't like is Pokemon Hunter J, mostly due to the fact that she is a poacher similar to Strasser. Hunter J sees potential profits in capturing the ape, but every time she threatens Joe, he would more than likely go on a rampage just to try to attack her.
  • At first, Silica is concerned with crossing paths with Joe as he reminded her of an ape-like creature that killed her mother a while back. That changed, however, when the two ended up teaming up to battle Grodd after Joe saw him trying to attack her. Since then, the two have become friends as Silica then realized that Joe isn’t an irrationally aggressive evil ape and that he too had lost his mother, something that they bonded over.
  • Given that he once saved a group of kids from a burning orphanage, he was able to gain some degree and respect from King II and Kazuma Kiryu, both who value the safety of children. Many children deities have also taken a liking for Joe, particularly Anne-Marie, whom the gorilla has a soft spot for given their shared orphan status as well as the fact that like Eliza, she is also capable of verbally communicating with him. Joe is also well-acquainted with Tarzan due to the latter being a human who is raised by apes (who are either gorillas or Mangani depending on the version).
  • Can be seen hanging out with Ray Harryhausen as the gorilla’s film (the 1949 one) was the very first film that he had contributed his special effects to. Joe is glad to see one of his “fathers” face-to-face, and Ray is glad that one of the first creatures that he helped breathe life to is now a god residing in the Pantheon.

    Crystal (Crystal's Pony Tale) 
Crystal, Patron Goddess of "My Little Pony" Lampooning
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hqdefault_183.jpg
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: A shining horseshoe
  • Theme Song: the first half of her game's intro
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: quite obviously based on My Little Pony, customizable mane, coat, and tail color, cannot die in her game, collecting crystals to save her friends, Sugar Bowl setting
  • Domain(s): Horses, Magic, Collection
  • Heralds: her seven rainbow-colored friends
  • Followers: Other MLP knockoffs all over fiction and reality
  • Allies: All good-aligned Equestria deities, Black Beauty, Lady Amalthea, Lady Rainicorn
  • Enemies: Those who inflict a Fate Worse than Death or invoke And I Must Scream fates
  • Opposes: Zubat, bees
  • One day, in the House that would eventually house it as a temple, a quaint castle inexplicably appeared, and then from its doors, a candy-colored horse made herself known, and was identified by the name Crystal. At first, witnesses assumed that this was another to-be-deity from Equestria, but a second look made them think she looked like a knockoff of them. After the Court of the Gods reviewed her profile, and decided she can stay, though the title can be a bit demeaning. Crystal saw no problem with it, not really comprehending why it's a problem.
  • While certainly more colorful than most, Crystal is otherwise an ordinary horse, albeit one that is clever enough to operate simple machines, and solve basic puzzles.
  • Her colors can change from a limited selection of colors. By default, though, Crystal has a brown coat, purple mane, and green tail.
  • Being from a game that rips off of My Little Pony, the good-aligned deities originating from there at first had mixed opinions on how to regard her. Of course, since Friendship is Magic, Crystal got along with them pretty easily, with Pinkie Pie throwing a second party to celebrate her ascension. Also, ironically speaking, it's thanks to their series that Crystal's pony tale received considrable attention at all.
  • For inexplicable reasons, Crystal has a wand that she uses to store gems she collects (for freeing her friends from the witch's spell) and whisk her friends to safety after rescuing them. No one knows exactly where it takes them, only that they're safe from the witch there since she doesn't/can't go there to kidnap Crystal's friends again.
  • Because her friends have been victims of these, Crystal dislikes those who would subject others to horrifying fates like being encased in a cave wall, stuck as a fountain statue, rendered as an outline on a carousel, or other comparable things. She also doesn't like those who screw over others for any reason, especially if they don't have any justifiable ones.
  • Given that a witch imprisoned her friends, Crystal is wary around all of such in the Pantheon, though she can warm up to the good ones over time.
  • Crystal gets annoyed whenever she's in an area with bats; she's had enough of them in her game.
    • She also doesn't like bees either—something Nicholas Cage can understand—given the times those in her world drop honey on her, making her lose horseshoes upon contact.
  • Being all but an ordinary horse, has nothing to say about Pony Island, but even she can feel something wrong from it and has no plans on approaching it, and by extension its Lucifer or the other demons within. As for the Hopeless Soul, she pities him, but knows not of a way to free him (if he even wants to), and has no experience with gaming consoles.

    The Phantom of the Paradise 
Winslow Leach, God of Opera Ghost Expies (Phantom of the Paradise)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/winslowphantom.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His helmet
  • Theme Song: "Faust (Winslow)"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Theatre Phantom, Anti-Hero, Cheap Costume, Rock Opera, bird motifs, used to be a Lovable Nerd
  • Domains: Music, Expies, Revenge
  • Herald: Phoenix
  • High Priest: Don Octavio
  • Allies: The Phantom of the Opera, Faust, Homura Akemi
  • Enemies: The Incubators, The Great Fusilli, Griffith
  • Conflicting Opinion: Héctor, Yusuke Kitagawa
  • Winslow Leach was a composer who had aspirations to make it big in the music industry. He also had a muse, Phoenix, who he loved and thought was perfect to give voice to his music. However, his work got stolen by a powerful and unscrupulous music producer called Swan, who wanted to use it to promote his project, a concert hall called The Paradise. Winslow was framed and thrown into jail. He eventually broke out to get revenge on Swan, but a first attempt resulted in him falling into a record press, disfiguring his face. From there he started donning a black cape and a helmet shaped like a bird's head, becoming the Phantom of the Paradise. Swan pacified him by offering the chance for his music to get produced on his own terms. But really Swan tricked Winslow into signing a contract with the devil, which tethered them together. Swan himself had formed a pact to remain youthful forever. He also tricked Phoenix into giving him her voice upon her death, and thus was planning to kill her. Winslow ultimately saved Phoenix by killing Swan, sacrificing his own life in the process due to the contract.
  • As you've probably already guessed, the Phantom of the Paradise is a different take on the Phantom of the Opera, with the context of the 1970's music business and pacts with Satan added on. As it happens, Erik, the Phantom of the Opera, was debating with himself which of his imitators was worthy of taking on the relevant title, and settled on Winslow after he found that Winslow's story to be rather admirable and sympathetic, in no small part because he was willing to sacrifice himself for his love. Thus Winslow was retrieved from death and ascended into the Pantheon.
  • Winslow is therefore quite loyal to the Phantom of the Opera, being grateful for the new chance at life and being given another shot at his dream to be a famous composer, this time without the constraints of corrupt producers like Swan. Erik is as passionate about music himself, so he sponsors Winslow and hopes he can achieve great things in the Pantheon. Although, Winslow has wondered if there was no way to bring him back as his non-disfigured self. Erik explained that wasn't their decision but the higher beings', but assured him the Pantheon was more accepting of people like them than their worlds. Winslow still doesn't really like it but he has conformed himself.
    • As far as other Theatre Phantoms go, Winslow dislikes the Great Fusilli much like Erik does, given that the crocodile is a thoroughly evil sort of entertainer with no redeeming qualities who tricks his actors into becoming his literal marionettes. It's actually possible that Winslow might despise the Great Fusilli more than Erik does, given Fusilli's trickery and manipulation of people (literal and figurative) is similar in some ways to how Swan duped people like him and Phoenix int giving their lives to him for his own benefit.
  • Winslow was able to get his muse Phoenix to be his Herald, given he always dreamed of her singing his music in its unadultered state and couldn't really be convinced to consider any of the many Music deities for an alternative. Freaked out as Phoenix was at both seeing Winslow alive again and the whole concept of the Pantheon, Winslow told her to just think of it as him having become a guardian angel of music. That didn't immediately ease her fears but she's slowly warming to the idea, and accepted becoming Winslow's main songstress.
  • The myth of Faust was a big influence in his work, which should be obvious from the fact that he wrote a whole cantata about the story that he considers his masterpiece. His pacts with rather unadvisable people (which include the Devil even though it was unintentional) also reflect Faust's story in a way. For those reasons, Winslow was pleasantly surprised to find that one of his greatest inspirations actually was present in the flesh in the Pantheon, and having greater understanding of him than most other deities due to their similar ordeals, the two became rather good friends.
  • Homura Akemi is a magical girl with similar symbolic connections to Faust's myth, and used her powers to save the girl she loved, something Winslow can certainly identify with given his aforementioned sacrifice to save Phoenix. Unlike many deities, Winslow doesn't even hold Homura's rebellion against her and seems to understand her feelings on the matter. One might credit this to the fact that he's not quite sane.
  • As is to be expected, Winslow absolutely despises the Incubators. Their seemingly innocent visages hide their true intentions in tricking young girls to sign irrevocable contracts with terrible terms, which reminds Winslow way too much of Swan. Despite the fact that he is not a person of interest to the Incubators (given they target girls), Winslow tries to kill them every time he sees them, feeling inspired by Homura's actions to do so.
  • Having had his music stolen by Swan several times and screwed over by him in other ways that made him what he is now (not to mention eventually killed him), Winslow identifies and sympathizes with the undead Héctor, who similarly had his music stolen and was killed by someone he once called a friend, who went on to make himself a star built on Héctor's hard work that he never credited. While Héctor also sees how his personal history matches with Winslow's, he's not so sure he's willing to be friends with someone capable of killing.
    • For the same reasons, Winslow also has the sympathy of Phantom Thief Yusuke Kitagawa, who despite being a painter and not a musician, had his work appropriated by his mentor and father figure Madarame, something he tolerated until he learned Madarame had left his mother to die in order to claim her work. But much like Héctor, Yusuke also has reservations about being friends with Winslow because of his lack of scruples in getting his revenge, as murder is something all the Phantom Thieves frown upon.
  • On occasion he gets heat from other deities who, due to his costume, confuse him for a certain Griffith, also known as Femto, one the worst Complete Monsters in the Pantheon. As it happens, Femto's style and name were inspired by Winslow's Phantom persona. Of course, the deities who actually bother to get to know him, even Héctor and Yusuke, will quickly claim to anyone who listens that Winslow is nowhere near as despicable as Femto. Winslow himself hates Femto for obvious reasons, though he's aware he's totally out of his league and Femto just regards him with indifference.
    • His look was also the basis for some Digimon, most notably Apocalymon. However the Digidestined just regard this as an interesting piece of trivia. Given they work on vastly different areas, and Winslow isn't that bad, there's yet to be a compelling reason for them to seek out an interaction with Winslow. Though Winslow is left wondering why his look is so popular with such terrible beings.
