  • One of the most enigmatic yet powerful figures of the DC Universe is the Phantom Stranger. He tends to show up to help people deal with supernatural events, but rarely has a direct hand in things. He has an habit of appearing (and disappearing) when nobody is looking, which most people find very annoying. Though it's know he is Walking the Earth, the reasons for so is unknown. No-one is certain of his origins, though intentionally conflicting origins have been given. Whether none, any or maybe even multiple origins are true is debated, but most tend to consider him Inexplicably Awesome.
  • Part of the Quintessence, a benevolent Omniscient Council of Vagueness comprised of himself, Zeus, Ganthet, Highfather and the wizard Shazam. The Phantom Stranger tends to show up in the Pantheon Protectors, given his role as an enigmatic aide and protector. He's found a kinship with both Gandalf and Merlin, the latter due to their mystic nature. Naturally he opposes the Legendary Foes.
  • Started off as a host of "supernatural" mysteries he'd reveal as hoaxes, only for the audience to wonder if he was supernatural. Be it nostalgia for his old role, the Phantom Strange has become fond of Mystery Incorporated and has aided them in uncovering hoaxes. Sometimes he even shows up to aid the detective goals of Detective Pikachu. However he is no less reliable than with superheroes, tending to come and go as he pleases. One time he was asked to get some bread, and it took him two years and he didn't remember which type of bread to get.
  • At least four potential origins have been posited for the Stranger, which affects his interactions with certain gods. According to Nekron he is neither living nor dead, and is enigmatic enough a Black Lantern was burned trying to take his heart. Regardless he has a kinship with AZ, as regardless of the origin they are stuck as wanderers. And in some, atonement and regret is a motivation for the Stranger.
    • The Phantom Stranger was a man called Isaac, the Wandering Jew. His son was a victim of the Massacre of the Innocents, and resented Jesus for this. He ended up bribing a guard to torture Jesus, who sentenced him to wander until doomsday for this. He eventually realized his mistake and devoted himself to doing good, even turning down an offer to be allowed to die and go to heaven. Christian deities were intrigued by this and have generally accepted his repentance.
    • Another origin that intrigues the House of FAITH was the "good man" origin. He was spared God's wrath when punishing a group of people, and when questioning God's actions committed suicide. However he was Barred from the Afterlife and condemned to walk the Earth, saving one soul at a time. The various incarnations of God in the pantheon debate on the judgement of (presumably) the Presence, except for YHVH who remains oddly silent about His thoughts on the Phantom Stranger.
    • The Phantom Stranger might actually be a time traveler from near the end of the universe, where his colleagues were trying to use time travel to stop the end. However an Omnicidal Maniac was trying to hijack the program to Ret-Gone the universe. The Stranger would go back in time to stop this and be transformed by the energies of the Big Bang, living to eventually to start his past self's journey and die at the end of time. With this is mind, he has ties to the Pantheonic Time Police and the Doctor. They have suggested he could circumvent a lot of the waiting by visiting Milliways, only for the Stranger to give them a sad smile and say "I'm sorry, I just can't do that".
    • It has also been suggested that the Phantom Stranger was an angel who stayed neutral in the War in Heaven, only for Neutrality Backlash to hit afterwards as he is neither welcome in Heaven or Hell. And his wings were later ripped off by a demon. The House of Demons support this by calling him a coward and a traitor, though they may just be trying to screw with him. Whis, a more neutrally inclined angel(though definitely in good graces with the Top God), seems to like the Phantom Stranger, what with them both being angelic beings who aid in a light touch, though very subtly in Whis' case. The Stranger simply said to him "I'm but the lifeform known as the Phantom Stranger".
  • During the New 52 the Phantom Stranger seemed to have a definitive origin, though his background has been retconned back to be mysterious again. He was Judas Iscariot, and alongside Pandora and the Question was cursed due to the enormity of his sins. It was divisive, due to lacking mystery though also giving him a more definitive character and humanizing him. And some in the pantheon have been searching for this specific version.
    • The Emperor of the Kingdom Dolorous wants to know why he's not being chewed forever in one of his mouths. Having become the epitome of absolute evil, and being associated with demons, the Phantom Stranger was never welcome near him. The Stranger seems to relate to both Brutus and Akechi Mitsuhide given their similar backgrounds, but how he feels about them depends on their moods.
    • As Judas, the Phantom Stranger was cursed to inevitably betray all he worked for, however he doesn't like it. While any given origin wouldn't stop the Stranger finding Mannfred Von Carstein to be repellent, this incarnation has particular contempt due to the shame he feels in betraying the Messiah. It's possible that his nature as Judas makes him an Alternate Self to Karin Yuuki . She gives him weird looks and isn't going to explain why.
    • The first murderer sought out the Phantom Strange as another Biblical Bad Guy, but now doesn't know what to think of him. Neither does SCP-073. The fact that he refuses to go anywhere near the Saint's Corpse and doesn't like talking about it suggests whatever the truth of his nature, he has at least some ties to Biblical lore.
  • Though his true origin remains a mystery, the Phantom Stranger's foes in the pantheon reflect more than one possible origin. His opposition to Lord English and Sarda suggests the time traveler origin, his contempt of Dis suggests the neutral angel and Brutus origin. In general he opposes the GUAD's plans to destroy all life.
  • Has a complicated relationship with the Spectre, the only other DC character who could compared to the Stranger in terms of nature and powers. The two are quite associated to each other through continuities, though they are alternately presented as Headbutting Heroes, Arch-Enemies or even Those Two Guys. His Overdeity status is because he can actually fight toe to toe with the Spectre, and Depending on the Writer beat him.
  • The SCP Foundation is fascinated by the Phantom Stranger and wishes to know what exactly he is. They classify him as an anomaly, though Euclid class as he is benevolent and doesn't show any overtly destructive powers. However they aren't containing him (yet) because he has aided them in some containment breaches. Mainly SCP-682. The two faced off one another and neither seems to get a hold on the other. 682 screeched "you do not belong here [DATA EXPUNGED]!", which just raises more questions.
    • No, the Phantom Stranger is not Dr Clef. Just because they are enigmatic and have an unreliable Multiple-Choice Past doesn't mean they're the same person. For one, Clef is a lot ruder than the Stranger.
  • Castiel seems fond of him, though mainly if the idea that the Phantom Stranger was a neutral angel is in fact the truth. Otherwise the two have been seen complimenting each other on their fashion sense. The House of Capes & Coats are impressed by his Badass Longcoat. Sometimes the Stranger helps out Linkara, and the two can be seen complimenting each other's hats.
  • His face is always framed in shadow, regardless of the position of light around him. Or if he's even wearing a hat. He's just cool like that.

  • Allies: The Powerpuff Girls (her "sisters" and "mommies"), Professor Utonium, Kaworu Nagisa, Yuuki Konno
  • Enemies: Any enemy of the Powerpuff Girls or Professor Utonium is an enemy of hers.
  • Friendly Enemy with: Bizarro
  • Opposed/Feared by: Muggle police deities
  • One-shot characters aren't often memorable unless they have performed something worth remembering. Sometimes, this is a memetic moment either by hilarity or awesomeness. Sometimes, it's by impacting the main characters in a way so significant it sticks for the rest of the story. And sometimes, these characters die or otherwise meet a tragic end, and are remembered greatly for it. The Fourth Powerpuff Girl, Bunny, is a prime example of this.
    • The first thing that was done to Bunny after resurrecting her was stabilizing her body so that it won't explode again. There was nothing that could be done with her appearance, though, but Bunny was okay with it.
    • The moment they received word of Bunny's ascension, the Powerpuff Girls pulled a record speed for being first on the scene and gave her a much-deserved Tackle Hug as well as a tearful confession and apology for how harshly they regarded her. Being the simpleton that she is, Bunny forgave them. Everybody who arrived got the luxury of seeing Buttercup's tender side, which for once she didn't bother denying when it was realized who else bore witness to the scene.
    • When Professor Utonium arrived in his Powerprof suit minutes later, he beheld Bunny in person for the first time, asked his girls who she was and why she looked similar to them, reprimanded them for experimenting without his guidance which resulted in Bunny's... gonky appearance and short lifespan, and accepted the fourth Powerpuff Girl all the same.
  • The first thing Bunny's sisters, together with their surrogate father, did for their new arrival was (patiently) drill into her head the difference between criminals and lawmen. They don't want a repeat incident of... what happened last time. Also, they were able to at least get Bunny to comprehend directives correctly. Without her limited lifespan to worry about, they had plenty of time to teach her.
    • That said, normal police officer deities are still uncomfortable whenever she's in their presence, given that she mistakenly beat up several of them once and freed some criminals.
  • As fellow one-shots, Bunny got along with Yuuki and Kaworu and sometimes spars with the former when the swordswoman asks for a friendly spar, even if fists aren't normally good in a sword fight.
  • Half the time, due to the strange powers of fandom wishing, Bunny sometimes wakes up with the same size and cuteness as her sisters. The only thing that remains the same in her is her mental state. Professor Utonium wonders why this anomaly occurs and performs passive research on her whenever this happens.
  • Somehow triggers some sense of familiarity from the following deities:
    • Darkwing Duck at first thought some villain had turned his daughter Gosalyn into a mutant or something and upon seeing Bunny, he was torn between attacking and just standing there. Upon then recognizing her similarities with the Powerpuff Girls, he decided to stand down, to their relief when the trio arrived on the scene, Blossom diplomatically clearing up the confusion.
    • Babe didn't exactly panic when Bunny wanted to give the pig a hug.
    • Sonic panicked a bit when he heard a distorted version of a voice of one of his friends in a different continuity, Bunnie Rabbot, then remembered that Eggman either uses animals as energy resources or roboticizes them, and the voice he heard definitely didn't fit what Eggman would do. Upon seeing Bunny, he calmed down and decided to make friends with her, though he probably wasn't expecting a crushing hug to be her answer.
    • The Ashleys could swear hearing three of their classmates (Library Kid, Digger #2, and Sue Bob Murphy) all from whenever Bunny speaks and elect to keep their distance from her.
  • She also feels an extra sadness sometimes for reasons she couldn't comprehend.
  • Bunny was very angry to learn that another fourth Powerpuff Girl named Bliss exists. She views herself as the fourth Powerpuff Girl and, in the unlikely chance that Bliss should ascend, will likely attack her. Most deities are still trying to figure out how she knows of the alternate universe when the only other person who knew about it was HIM.

    Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel and Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel 
Carol Susan Jane Danvers and Kamala Khan, Co-Goddesses of Lasting Affirmative Action Characters (Carol: Captain Marvel, formerly known as Ms. Marvel, Binary, "Vers" | Kamala: Ms. Marvel)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ms_3.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess (Carol, Greater in the MCU), Lesser Goddess (Kamala)
  • Symbol: Carol's insignia or Kamala's lightning bolt.
  • Leitmotif: Slugger
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Carol), Chaotic Good (Kamala)
  • Portfolios: Action Girl, Half-Human Hybrid, Super Strength, Affirmative Action Legacy
  • Domains: Heroism, Good, Strength, (Carol: Sun, Void, Law), (Kamala: Chaos, Rubber)
  • Herald: Sam Alexander/Nova
  • Followers: Courtney Elizabeth Whitmore/Stargirl, Michael Holt/ Mr. Terrific, Kaldur/Aqualad. There were many others... only to be replaced/killed off.
  • Allies: Billy Batson/Shazam, Avatar Korra, Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Miles Morale, James Howlett/Wolverine,
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Anna Marie/Rogue
  • Enemies: Victor von Doom, Lex Luthor, Ultron, Johann Schmidt/Red Skull
  • Opposes: Raven Darkholme/Mystique
  • Neutral with: Alison Blaire/Dazzler
  • It takes a lot of determination to make a name for oneself in the Superhero Pantheon. That goes double for those who hope to take on the legacy of previous characters. Out of those, Carol may win the title of those who went through the roughest times. Her perseverance finally paid off when she took over Marvell's title of Captain Marvel. Her warm reception while replacing a male character with a female one earned her a place in the Pantheon. But she wouldn't enter alone. A Pakistani girl named Kamala Khan took her former title of Ms. Marvel. For being such a popular character while replacing a white female, Carol decided to make her a full-fledged goddess instead of a herald.
    • It was not an easy decision. Many like the two strive to become legacy characters to their inspirations, with many failing to do so. Some of their kind were either killed off or sidelined shortly afterwards. Carol and Kamala seek to help those in need, with Carol especially distraught with her followers suffering the same abuse she had endured.
  • Kamala made sure to visit every single house in the Pantheon. Twice over. Sure it left her exhausted for a week, but it was well worth it. She squeed to find not only many of her favorite superheroes, but characters she read and played games in.
  • Billy Batson put up his best smile when the two ascended, but he couldn't help but feel deflated. That's due to being involved in one of the most peculiar naming battles in the Pantheon. After Billy's stories were shut down, Carol's predecessor took the name "Captain Marvel" for himself. Once Billy returned, he wasn't allowed to use that name in his books. It got to the point where DC decided to just call him Shazam and end it there, even though he has never been called that before now. Carol and Kamala heard his plight and decided to pay him a visit, saying he could use the name whenever he wanted. A teary Billy gave the two a hug before taking them to the House of Food to eat.
  • Rumors have been swirling around the Pantheon, claiming that Danvers still has a crush on Spider-Man. Carol refuses to buy into the claim, but Kamala thinks she's lying. She even wrote a fanfic of the two together. Spider-Man takes the notion with pride and even teasing Marvel about it.
    • This has come to bit him on the butt when many pointed out Peter's thoughts indicated he may have wished the two became a formal item, successfully shutting down the Spider and causing a large blush from Carol and a squeal of excitement from Kamala.
  • Some say Ms. Marvel shares a resemblance with Korra, especially after the later cut her hair. Kamala was grateful for the compliment, but points out she usually doesn't have the physique to match. It's that some of her artists that don't know that.
    • Carol seems to have the opposite problem. Despite having a figure most goddesses would dream of, some still think of her a more thick-skinned than most other superheroes. This accusation dates back to when Doctor Doom called her a "fat cow" Doom admittedly stated that it was a Doombot that said that, as he would never resort to such childish insults. Carol felt even more embarrassed that she let that get to her.
  • Both stand opposed to the usual villainous gods in the Pantheon, particularly Lex Luthor, God of Supervillains. The GUAE have acted accordingly to counteract the threat.
  • It is almost certain that Carol is currently finding an opportunity to ascend her best friend Jessica Drew, AKA Spider-Woman, into the Pantheon. To her surprise, she previously had a seat in the House of Heroes before circumstances disqualified her from the title. Carol hopes to find a new one for her. Many deities theorized their friendship is more than that given Jessica's sexual tendencies. Both parties deny those charges. Carol even noted she was already in a relationship; that with James Rhodes, formerly known as War Machine.
  • One of Carol's lowest points as a mortal was the time when she was depowered by Rogue, forcing her to live her life with no superpowers for a long time. She may have forgiven the mutant for ruining her life, but the two still don't see eye to eye on a number of issues.
    • The reason she could forgive Rogue is that she found out she only acted on the will her former superior: Mystique. So when she found out that the shapeshifter had a temple of her own... well, saying she was angry would be an understatement. Carol flew over to Mystique and gave her a beating to remember before being restrained in the House of Justice. She may not be allowed to kick her out, but Carol is willing to make her life a living hell for what she did.
  • As such she serves as a motherly figure to all deities who felt neglected, superhero or otherwise. That attitude was why she supported Jessica Jones more than any other superhero at the later's lowest point. She was elated to find her ascended in the Pantheon.
  • After her initial tour of the Pantheon, Kamala settled down in the House of Gaming, fulfilling her wishes of playing video games. She was glad there were many other deities who were gamers like her, even willing to roleplay online.
  • As an Inhuman, Kamala respects the lone deity in the Pantheon. Black Bolt and his wife Medusa have tasked themselves in training Kamala to improve her powers.
  • It was no surprise that Kamala got along well with Steven Universe. Kamala was in contention for the title herself given how well received she has been with her fans. Her in-universe popularity... could use some work. She hopes that Steven can win back her support in Jersey City.
  • She was also a fan of her appearance in the Avengers Academy. Amusing, as she is probably the only one who appeared at their exact age.
  • Carol also placed shrines in her temple to her predecessors (and successors of the original Captain, most notably Spectrum, Monica Rambeau ( a female Afro-American who was the second Captain Marvel and the first Photon) along with Mar-Vell's children (Genis-Vell, his son who was the third Marvel before becoming the second Photon and Phyla-Vell, who became the fourth Marvel before becoming the second Quasar). All next to a shrine of Mar-Vell himself. The Vell family's shrines also serve as memorials, given their ultimate fates.
    • Kamala also made one to her predecessor and Carol's successor for Ms. Marvel, who is now She-Thing when she learned about her.
  • Some have pointed out why Carol chose to call herself Captain Marvel despite her being a US Airforce Colonel in rank and thus technically outranks Captain America himself and making her new title a demotion. She takes it in stride since she did choose the name to honor Mar-Vell though she has said that Colonel Marvel had a nice ring to it.
  • Marvel has been trying to make Carol into their counterpart for Wonder Woman, thus leading Carol to befriend the Amazonian. Both of them hit it off well, while Kamala has been spending time with both Wonder Girls.
    • Diana and Carol also find a hilarious common ground in that both of their metaphysical origins were inspired by those of Billy Batson as Captain Marvel; (For Diana, both got powers from the Greek Gods, with Diana having been made by DC to Captain Marvel back when he was with Fawcett Comics. In turn, Carol and her predecessor, Mar-Vell, were Marvel's answer to Billy.
  • Unfortunately, the two are rarely seen together nowadays as a result of the events of the second Civil War. Both heroines are also seen in much more depressed moods.
    • Fortunately, the two are able to patch things up when Carol goes to talk to Kamala and convinces her to come out of retirement.
  • During the HYDRA takeover of the world Kamala had met Illyana again, but despite their different nature as Inhuman and Mutant both joined together in the fight eventually coming to respect one another. Illyana wasn't ready to call Kamala a friend, even when she was invited over for some more sweets in Kamala's house.
  • Carol's live-action debut has brought her to the attention of some other deities. Trent Reznor, in gratitude for her wearing a Nine Inch Nails shirt, gifted Carol with a specially made one. Her portrayer made Scott Pilgrim consider Carol familiar and King Kong to take a liking to her.
  • Due to the One Steve Limit, Khan is often confused with Kamala Harris.

    Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen

  • Enemies: Norman Osborn/Green Goblin, Otto Octavius/Doc Ock, Frank Castle/The Punisher, Tsumugi Shirogane, Felicia Hardy/Black Cat
  • Very Conflicting Opinion: Matt Murdock/Daredevil
  • Ascended to the Pantheon after the war against the Inheritors. The Court of the Gods enjoyed this version of Gwen Stacy so much that they decided to give her a place her. Spider-Man, the original himself, personally vouched for her.
  • When she heard that everyone calls her the "Best Gwen Stacy in the Universe", she was more than curious and went to the House of Time and Space to check on the last of her counterparts.
    • The first one was her Earth-616 counterpart, the original, where the most famous event took place and almost every universe copied the events of that location: The Bridge, or what she calls it "the place where many of [her] been fridged off a bridge". Her initial personality was that of a mean girl but thanks to her interactions with Peter she became the Nice Girl that everybody knows from that point on. Gwen promised this world's Peter that she will not die and that she will watch his back…not just because he vouched for her to come here, but because she had lost her Peter Parker, which wounded her deeply.
      • Once Gwen discovered the original had been frequently impersonated by clones, the Pantheon decided to stop such an exploitation of her memory by reviving her. Spider-Gwen is now teaching self-defense to her alternate counterpart.
    • Next was Earth-26496 where she was a nerd like Peter. Gwen finds this version's ability to stare at someone and make them do what she wants them to do very amusing.
    • The one from Earth-1610 she found to be most interesting. That version of her formed a Cool Big Sis relationship with the Peter of that world before eventually dating him. Sadly, that version also ended up killed, that time by Carnage... temporarily. She felt the whole bit of her Earth-1610 self becoming Carnage 2.0 to be out of whack. Even more so with the Peter of that world learning that he was immortal after a climatic fight with the Goblin.
    • Then there was Earth-120703, her most recent version. Again a nerd, but this time with a relationship so deep that she rivalled 616 Mary Jane's. Her death was not on a bridge, but on a clock tower. What's even sadder is that this Spider-Man almost did save her. She was saved from the fall, but it was the whiplash from the momentum and the bump on the head that ended her. Still, she was grateful that this Gwen had given a moving speech which inspired him to continue being Spider-Man.
  • Gwen found Earth-616 Mary Jane was in the Pantheon. The first thing MJ did when she saw Gwen was hugging her with tears in her eyes. They talked and bonded and Gwen was glad that this Mary Jane is nothing like her counterpart, where she has the me, me and just me attitude.
  • She and Peter can be found practicing in the House of Combat, where he does not take any chances and makes sure she has all of his skill to protect herself. Likewise, whenever he's going through a tough time and it's obviously affecting his fighting, she never fails to cut the sparring off early and get him talking through the issue.
  • Some superheroes wonder why she has a hood as part of her suit.
  • Gwen is also a drummer in a band called "The Mary Janes" which also shows the ego of her world's Mary Jane. Not only is she wicked with the drums, but she can also use those skills to beat bad guys.
  • Batman sees parallels with Gwen and Barbara Gordon, in that both are daughters who are heroes with fathers as cops, one as Commissioner and the other as Captain. He took her to the House of Time and Space to show how much George Stacy is like his friend Jim.
  • Was worried learning that Matt Murdock was also in the Pantheon, as her world's version of Matt serves as the Kingpin and was also the one who sent a hit out on her father. Spider-Man told her not to worry as the Matt Murdock he's familiar with is nothing like that. Daredevil for his part became rather depressed to find that there exists an alternate reality of himself that would stoop to crime, let alone take the mantle of his arch-enemy.
  • Gwenpool, who in a way was inspired by Gwen, idolizes her and envies how her uniform has pants. Gwen is favorable to her, even if she finds weird her view of the multiverse (namely, that it's all a comic from her dimension).
  • Has recently formed a bond with Venom to gain revenge against her universe's Rhino for hurting her father, but now she is losing control of herself much to the horror of her friends in the pantheon. Now, she is Gwenom and they are here to stay!
  • Gwen's voice brought her to the attention of Bumblebee. Both have since spent a lot of time together, as Gwen knows a giant robot that even serves as a car is an invaluable ally.

  • Conflicting Opinion: Doctor Doom
  • Koudelka was born in 1879 to a very poor Gypsy family in the remote Welsh village of Abergynolwyn, beside the Taliesin river. Her birth name is Zslato, which means "treasure". Her strong psychic abilities frightened her family and neighbours and things came to a head when she predicted her father's death down to the very minute, days before it happened. Her mother, fearful of her daughter's powers, tried to kill her, but was unsuccessful. After being brought before the Gypsy elders, Koudelka was banished and chased from the village. In 1888, at age nine, she was found in London by Mrs. Blavatsky, a renowned medium for the spirits. She raised Koudelka as her daughter, helping her hone her skills until she passed away. Afterwards, Koudelka set off travelling around Britain, supporting herself by finding lost articles for other people and serving as a medium for those who wished to communicate with the spirit world. In Autumn of 1898, Koudelka heard a desperate plea of help from a spirit asking her to travel to the Nemeton Monastery in Aberystwyth, Wales. After arriving at the monastery, Koudelka met and teamed up with Edward Plunkett and Father James O' Flaherty in order to investigate the events happening there. 15 years later, Koudelka teamed up with Yuri Hyuga and his group in order to prevent Albert Simon from summoning a being a known as "Meta-God" and cleansing the world.
  • She ascended into the pantheon after the gods heard about her show-stopping appearance in the adventure of her successor, Yuri Hyuga. She was quite surprised to hear that it is considered to be such a big deal.
  • Koudelka quickly befriended fellow Gypsy Esmeralda, who was happy to meet another Gypsy within the pantheon. The two bonded over their shared hardships and formed a mutual respect. However, Koudelka also became enemies with Judge Frollo, who was outraged about the ascension of another Gypsy and started threatening her the same way that he did Esmeralda. Koudelka managed to get him to keep his distance by threatening him with her magic powers. While this has successfully resulted in him generally avoiding her, the fact that she can use dark magic further convinced him that she was evil and has fueled his desire to destroy her.
  • She became good friends with Sophitia Alexandra and Terra Branford due to her strong bond with her son and her willingness to prioritise his safety over that of the world or herself. She sympathises with Sophitia for having been Forced into Evil in order to protect her daughter and generally agrees with Terra about the joys of love, as it helped to soften her outlook on life and resulted in the birth of her son, Halley.
  • Koudelka is also good friends with fellow spirit channeler Maya Fey, which came as a surprise to many as the two have very different personalities. However, Koudelka managed to bond with Maya over their shared desire to help people. Similarly, Koudelka befriended Anna Kyōyama due to having a similar past of being ostracized as a child because of her powers.
  • She is on friendly terms with Vent and Aile and sympathises with how they lost their parents at a young age. They bonded over their shared desire to help others despite their respective hardships.
  • Koudelka was initially quite alarmed to hear that there were two Amons in the pantheon, as she thought that one of them could be a powerful demon with the same name from her world who is one of the three Gods of Destruction. Although neither of them is the Amon from her world, she nonetheless became enemies with both of them. The leader of the Equalists opposes her due to the fact that she is a magic user while the fallen Xel'Naga dislikes her due to his view of humans as being insignificant.
  • She generally opposes evil Psychics and is frequently called upon for help whenever any are causing trouble. However, she also feels sorry for certain evil psychics, such as Lucy and Psycho, as their bad childhoods contributed to them becoming evil and make her wonder if she could have ended up like them if not for the kindness she had received from others.
  • She's rather unsure of what to think of Doctor Doom. On one hand, they're both Gypsies who have experienced hardships and are very skilled at magic. On the other hand, she disagrees with his dictatorial methods and his willingness to resort to extreme and immoral methods to achieve his goals. However, his Heel–Face Turn has resulted in their interactions becoming more amicable.

    Lunord 
Lunord, the Easily Condemned God of All There in the Manual
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/783e22f47d2c2006ee1c1f5c98f871db.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A black circle containing the gold outline of a crescent moon atop a pyramid.
  • Alignment: True Neutral (with shades of Lawful, Chaotic, and Good)
  • Portfolio: All There in the Manual, Former Big Good (or closest equivalent), Dark Is Not Evil, Slap-Slap-Kiss Brother–Sister Incest, Abusive Parenting (reformed), Easily Condemned for Out of Character Frame-Up, Chalice MacGuffins, Purview over Wind and the Night.
  • Domains: Night, Moon, Wind, Chalices, Manuals.
  • Followers: Assassins, (now undead) Adepts, and Spirits of Darkness.
  • Allies: Ezio Auditore, Talim, Barry Allen, Thrall, Balanar
  • Rivals: Amaterasu, Princess Celestia... basically, any divine associated with the sun.
  • Enemies: Conan, Nighmare Moon, Valkenhayn R. Hellsing, the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog
  • Odd Friendship: Nurgle
  • Opposes: Queen Elsa
  • Manual: Prima Official Strategy Guide - Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim.
  • The majority of Lunord's deeds in the Ardanian pantheon were transcribed by the prophet-strategist Prima. Lunord suspects that part of the reason for being Easily Condemned is that not enough people had read Prima's manual to realize that he was framed.
  • Lunord's transcribed deeds include:
    • A sibling rivalry with his his sister Helia (the Ardanian sun goddess) that resulted in a full war that Lunord nearly won... until abused mercenary barbarians crushed both sides. Both he and Helia were so weakened that there was winter for six years.
      • Because of this, Lunord opposes Queen Elsa for endless winters, however "benevolent" they be, and is a full enemy of Conan for his abuses against barbarians (and the fact that Krolm, Ardania's god of Barbarians and Lunord's father, bears more than a passing resemblance to Crom).
    • Siring seven children with Helia during their post-war truce: three that were ejected from the pantheon (Grum-Gog, the hideous god of pestilence and father of goblins, and two non-god abominations) and quintuplets that ruled over Life, Death, Law, and Chaos. Helia and Lunord stepped back and allowed those four to take over the pantheon.
    • His sacred chalice being a key artifact is establishing the first king Sydrian, heralding the existence of the new gods to the people of Ardania, and saving the life of Ardania's greatest sovereign since Sydrian.
  • Despite all of the above, when the religious orders suddenly went into upheaval, the blame was placed on Lunord and he was kicked out of his home pantheon. He eventually cleared his name with the help of Grum-Gog, which helped reconcile the goblin god with the rest of the Ardanian pantheon as well.
    • While it took a long time for Lunord to do so, Thrall is happy that Lunord has come to accept and support orcs and goblins as people, rather than Always Chaotic Evil monsters.
    • How he cleared his name involved transforming a werewolf into a not-quite-killer rabbit. This has put Lunord in hot water with the werewolf and killer rabbit communities. On top of that, the werewolves of Ardania have a strong affinity towards the sun, so he's not exactly fond of them back.
  • Lunord has had a complicated relationship with his sister Helia, not only for their past fighting and their mutual children, but it was revealed that she was the one who framed him out of jealousy. He isn't fond of her, but he can't bring himself to hate her. He's come to project this frustration against any god associated with the sun. Amaterasu has it particularly bad because of her additional association with the moon; as far as Lunord is concerned, she's a Yin-Yang Bomb waiting to go off.
  • Given his experience of being weakened during the Six Winter's War, he knows the dangers that a lack of sunlight can do. He therefore cannot support Nightmare Moon's goal of eternal night, just as he opposes Queen Elsa's endless winter.
  • Lunord's reconciliation with his son Grum-Gog has not only improved his relationship with goblins and orcs, but also made him extremely tolerant of Grum-Gog's pestilence aspect and disease in general. So much so that he's developed a friendship with Nurgle, of all people.
  • Despite being a god of the night, one of Lunord's stronger aspects has been control of the wind. One of his main blessings is having the wind enhance one's speed, making him a strong ally of speedsters and speedster aspirants. He and Talim has also bonded over his wind aspect.
  • When all of his speedster followers died in the war Lunord was blamed for, he took to supporting assassins with his night aspect. The Adepts have since been revived as undead, but assassins still can count on his patronage.
  • While Lunord isn't a full-on enemy of the sun, Balanar still supports his antagonism toward sun deities. Likewise, Lunord sympathizes with Balanar for the sun making him the last of his kind.
  • Because of being Easily Condemned in his own pantheon, he opts to steer clear of the House of Justice due to lingering trust issues with the system.

Lesser Gods

    Casca 
Casca, Goddess of Traumatic Rape and Amnesiac Love Interests (Big Sis (When in the Band of the Hawk), Potato)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/casca_300.jpg
Click here  to see Casca's appearance after the Eclipse
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A fine sword with a heart on the hilt, pointing upwards
  • Theme Song: Guts
  • Alignment: Neutral Good -> True Neutral post-eclipse
  • Portfolio: Rape as Drama, Amnesiac Lovers, Ambiguously Brown, Going insane from rape, Pressure of leadership, Protectorates who prevent their protectors from becoming evil, Mystical Pregnancies Gone Wrong, Crazy yet beautiful women
  • Domains: Insanity, Love, Leadership (Formerly), Pregnancy, Tomboys
  • Allies: Guts (her lover), Asuka Langley Soryu, Oberyn Martell, Satsuki Kiryuin, Bullet, Mami Tomoe, Mitsuko Souma, Lady Maria
  • Enemies: Griffith, The Godhand, Nosferatu Zodd, Wyald, Gregor Clegane, The Grineer,The House of Demons, rapists in general
  • Pitied by: Red Sonja, The Ancestor, any rape victims in the Pantheon
  • Opposes: Ragyo Kiryuin
  • Avoids: Sasha Brouse
  • Wary of: The Ancestor
  • As one of the original members of the Band of the Hawk, Casca was Griffith's second in command and his closest friend. However, Guts eventually entered their lives when Griffith defeated him in a duel and makes Guts join. While Guts proved to be a valueable member of the Band, he and Casca didnt like each other at first and fought alot. A battle which caused Casca and Guts to be seperated from the others forced them to help each other and became closer to each other. Eventually, Guts left the Band to pursue his own dreams, creating a chain of events causing Griffith to be imprisoned and Casca leading the remaining members of the band to safety after being ambushed. Casca held the band until Guts came back to rescue them from an attack. Afterwards they officially became a couple and launched a raid to rescue the imprisoned Griffith. While the resue was successful, Griffith was tortured and mutilated to a shadow of himself, causing him to go into despair and activating his Behelit, branding everyone including Guts and Casca as a sacrifice to demons. While Casca managed to fight off a few demons, she was then overwhelmed by them who eventually parted ways for Griffith, now a demon god called Femto. Femto grabbed Casca and raped her infront of a wounded Guts, causing so much damage to her that she mentally regressed to an infantlike state from the experience.
  • Originally a High Priestess to Mitsuko Souma and Lady Maria, Casca became known to the Pantheon after her traumatizing experience in the Eclipse. Wanting her to be back to normal, Guts helped take her to the Pantheon in hopes she would be cured. While a cure is still being looked at, the gods felt sorry for her and gave her a position in the Pantheon.
    • While there is an ongoing attempt with Guts and his companions going to the magical kingdom of Elfhelm and getting Casca cured, the House of Health and Disease in the meantime managed to find a temporary cure for Casca, however the cure only partially works so Casca frequently shifts between her pre-eclipse and post-eclipse personalities with most of the time spent with her post-eclipse identity
  • Her post-eclipse state is usually compared to a potato, due to her decreased mentality thats usually compared to a potato, going to an extent where her travelling outfit was compared to a potato sack. Due to that, she usually tries to avoid contact with Goddess of Potatoes Sasha Blouse, who seems to be a bit too fond of her.
  • Hates Ragyo Kiryuin for her many similarities to Griffith, including being evil albinos, betraying their species for power and are both rapists. Due to that, she made an alliance with Satsuki and also that they felt similar to each other.
  • Is wary of The Ancestor after he once sold a girl to fish people for money, causing her to turn into a mermaid monster. The Ancestor pities Casca and her condition, but she is unnerved by his connection to an Eldritch Abomination.
  • After her ascension, Oberyn Martell instantly took a liking to her as she reminded him of his sister who was raped and murdered by Gregor Clegane. He has sworn to protect her and not let any more harm come to her, expecually when it involves Gregor.
  • Encountered Mami Tomoe while wandering the Pantheon. Mami thought Casca sounded like her and took a liking to her. It also Helps that Mami had previous experience with Guts.
  • Since her ascension to the Pantheon, demonic spirits frequently target Casca due to her Brand of Sacrifice. Since she is usually defenseless, Guts is there to defend her from any demonic creature that tries to harm her.
  • Since she came back to her senses, Casca is no longer defenseless but, given that she's a lesser Goddess, Guts still considers her to be under his protection. As such, Guts is often seen in both her houses but he's often there in the form of a black wolf or a large guard dog with glowing eyes, either way often roaming around her. While he appreciates the work of Oberyn as her bodyguard, Guts would still rather do the job himself.
  • Also in the House of Love Interests

    Eliwood and Ninian 
Eliwood and Ninian, Co-Deities of Measurements of Non-Badassery (Eliwood: Knight of Lycia, Eli; Ninian: Child of Destiny, Nini)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eliwood_heroes.png
Eliwood
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ninian_heroes.png
Ninian
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: The Blazing Blade Durandal with an Ice Dragon stone in front of it (not stabbed) and the crest of Pherae behind it
  • Theme Song: One Heart (Eliwood), Reminiscence (Ninian), Precious Things (shared)
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Eliwood), Neutral Good (Ninian)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domain: Characterization, Combat, Support
  • Allies: Roy (their son [definitely in Eliwood's case]), Hector, Lilina, Lyndis, The Tactician, Sain, Marth, Caeda, Tiki, Corrin, Ephraim & Eirika, Ike, Azura, Shinji Ikari, Alexstrazsa, Paarthurnax
  • Uneasy Ally: Guts, The Dragonborn
  • Enemies: Gharnef, Grima, Alduin
  • As the last of the Lycian trio, despite being the father of the more famous Roy and the main protagonist of his debut series, Eliwood struggles in showing his worth because for some reason, how dare he be reluctant instead of being more inclined for battle unlike Hector and Lyndis. Then people discovered that badassery doesn't come in just kicking ass, but also to stand strong in conviction without giving in to despair, such as the time he calls out the Queen of Bern for the mistreatment for her son or calmly condemning Nergal that he just had pity on him before commencing the final battle. That was officially decreed by the Pantheon that he would be the one to manage and protect those who was falsely accused as a non-badass. But...
    • In the same time, they discovered that his 'official' girlfriend, the half-dragon Ninian, wasn't doing too well either in this department: She's only support, a non-combatant, a Damsel in Distress and the time she turned into a dragon, she got cut down by Eliwood in accident. Then people saw her breathing enemies to death around the realm called Askr and 'took back those wimp accusations'. Since it was very true to the spirit of the trope, the Pantheon elevated her to stand by Eliwood's side, much to both's joy.
  • Obviously, there was A LOT of rejoicing with the union of the 'Lycian League' with Hector and Lyndis greeting them both, and their children (Roy and Lilina) also present. Though it kind of confused Roy if that means he's quarter dragon now, but Eliwood assures that it doesn't matter: He saw him saying things like 'One day, we'll be in a day where humans and dragons can co-exist together', which is the greatest pride he can have, and for that matter, so is Ninian.
  • That said, Eliwood was also baffled that him calling out the Queen of Bern apparently wasn't enough to improve the lot of Zephiel's life to the point he caused the war that Roy had to clean up and costed Hector's life. He thought that maybe he should have directed that calling out to the King instead...
  • One day, Ninian decided to perhaps do one thing that is impossible: Calm and purify Grima down like she did with the Fire Dragon. Unsurprisingly it fails and she narrowly escaped being breathed down to oblivion, but props for trying.
  • At first they were a bit too creeped out by Guts and his Dragonslayer, since the name and the shape of the sword kind of brought bad memories about Eliwood cutting down Ninian by accident, until he explained that it's In Name Only, it slays demons better, he hasn't really fought dragons. Though they draw an easier breath, they're now just slightly unnerved at Guts due to his brutality, and in the same time pities at how his life turns out. (He rejects that pity notion, however)
  • For someone who went through a lot of shit like losing his father and accidentally killing her mate before resurrection, Eliwood surprisingly gains some respect for never giving in to hate, but just having pity, against even the worst megalomaniac. He did that to the Dark Druid Nergal, he'd do it again to any other evil bastards out there, including Gharnef. Boy, was the Dark Pontifex pissed at Eliwood...
  • Eliwood and Ninian's actions against the Fire Dragon caught the attention of Alexstrasza. Those dragons happened to be some of her lost children, and they apologized to her for having to struck the dragons down (Ninian was particularly over-apologetic). But, Alexstrazsa tells them to not too think about it too hard, she understands the situation.
  • On the other hand, Alduin is furious at them since an union between two differing species, especially when one of them is a superior species, a dragon, disgust him and he has been thinking of words that could separate them or make them serve him, but constantly coming up short (just coming up with mentioning their 'less badass' personality). Eliwood and Ninian found themselves in yet another uneasy alliance with the Dragonborn, as he could help them fight Alduin, but his accomplishment is more literal than Guts' sword name.
    • Not to mention with rumors that because Roy possibly being quarter dragon makes him a target to Alduin also spurred Eliwood and Ninian to protect the young lion too.
    • They have a more positive relationship with Paarthurnax, however. He appreciates their company and they respect his change in attitude to betray Alduin despite it being in his species' blood to dominate and destroy. Paarthurnax promises to aid them when met with future encounters from his brother.

    Kathryn Janeway and Jonathan Archer 
Kathryn Janeway and Jonathan Archer, Dual Gods of Interpretative Characters
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trek_janeway_4367.jpg
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trek_archer_7280.jpg
  • Janeway frequently goes to the House of Food to drink lots and lots of coffee, especially after a difficult mission. She is joined by Picard, who keeps to his usual Earl Grey tea. Archer, on the other hand, is concerned that all that caffeine could affect her decision-making.
    Archer: You drink coffee more than you drink water. Aren't you concerned it will do something to you?
    Janeway: Trust me, when you see the things I've seen, a cup of coffee will be your best friend.
  • In his early years as a captain, Archer felt certain animosity towards Vulcans because he felt they were holding humanity back from exploring the galaxy and put a severe hamper in his father's work. In time, he mended bridges with them, partially thanks to his interactions with his first officer T'Pol. Spock is also thankful that Archer briefly held the katra of Surak, Vulcan's most revered figure, allowing Vulcans to become reacquainted with Surak's true teachings and experience a spiritual rebirth.
  • Janeway normally keeps her distance from entities born from fusion, as they remind her too much of Tuvix. She still feels remorseful for forcibly separating him even when he made clear that he considered himself a completely new person, not just a fusion of Tuvok and Neelix. The more benevolent fused gods, like Omnimon and Garnet, understand that it was not an easy choice for her and have agreed to let her off the hook.
  • The House of Philosophy is unable to pass an official judgment on all the morally ambiguous actions they have taken in their travels. Some accuse them for setting a bad example to other space explorers for their aggressiveness, ignorance of Starfleet regulations and willful lack of diplomatic ability. Others are more sympathetic, claiming that Archer had to rise above many mistakes to eventually form the Federation and Janeway was deep into the Delta Quadrant, a place previously unexplored by any Starfleet vessel. They are so controversial in that House that her very presence caused an in-fighting between everyone there.
  • Time travel is something of a pet peeve to Archer, as he was constantly heckled by a Timecop called Daniels. Apparently, Archer was supposed to be a major figure in the Federation's founding, and Daniels was tasked with keeping him safe until that happened. And he did... sort of. For that reason, he is wary of time travelers and will only work for them if the situation calls for it.
    • One time traveller he does like is Dr. Samuel Beckett for his honesty and kindness and for sharing the same mortal avatar. He feels sorry that Sam never returned home and hopes he succeeds one day.
  • Janeway and Archer have become friends with Commander Shepard, finding common ground in Shepard's player-dependent personality with their own creators' differing ideas in how their TV shows should have been handled. You will usually find them having drinks, discussing moral dilemmas or fighting evil deities in the final frontier.
  • The more malicious gods enjoy telling Janeway that her captaincy of Voyager was so controversial that Starfleet promoted her to admiral just to get her out of the way. Janeway usually responds to those comments with a volley of photon torpedoes.
  • Many in the House of Love encourage Archer to do a Relationship Upgrade with T'Pol, saying that after everything he went through, The Good Captain clearly deserves some happiness in his life. Archer politely declines, as T'Pol was previously in a relationship with his friend Trip and they even had a daughter together. Unfortunately, both Trip and Elizabeth died, something that T'Pol never fully recovered from.

Northern Ocean Princess, The Unintentionally Sympathetic Goddess (Northern Hime, Hoppo, Dutch Harbor, Mittens)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bbv_northern_princess_581_full.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her rigging
  • Theme Music: Protect the Shikon
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil on the job, True Neutral otherwise
  • Portfolio: Unintentionally Sympathetic Villains, Mystical White Hair, Horned Humanoid, Badass Adorable Precocious Child, Creepy Child, Smallest Humanoid Abyssal, Being Really Popular
  • Domains: Villains, Creatures, Children, Sea
  • Allies: Her fellow Abyssal Fleet (Seaport Princess (practically her big sister), Wo-Class, Re-Class), Ika Musume, Lieselotte Achenbach, Angelia Avallone, Reisuke Houjou, Steven Universe
  • Enemies (on a bad day): Admiral, all of the ascended Fleet Girls, whoever tries to come to her guarded area
  • Originally, the title of Unintentionally Sympathetic Villains belonged to her fellow Abyssal Wo-Class. The reasoning is that even though the Abyssal Fleet is supposed to be almost heartless monsters trying to drive away humanity from the sea and might be resurrected Fleet Girls, no one can find them that evil. The reason why Northern Princess usurped Wo-Class was that even though she is meant to be a Creepy Child, everyone finds her to be a cute girl.
  • Due to how things are, she is only really evil when she has a duty to fulfil. She will ask others to go back, but she will return fire if she is threatened. But when not on duty, she acts like a cute little sister to Seaport Princess. No, we're serious.
    • When she is in her better days, she seems to hang around with Tenryuu the most of the Fleet Girls.
  • She constantly tries to get into House of Travel, demanding them to give her Zero back note . Double for Ryuujou. Eventually, they followed her command and gave her Zero. All four of them.
  • She seems to be getting along really well with Ika Musume of all of the Abyssals for whatever reason.
  • Of all of the Abyssal constructs, she seems to be the one who gets stacked with most special supplies based on what time of the year it is, were they presents for Christmas, hishimochi during Hinamatsuri or plain old mackerel when there is a good supply. Some gods tend to "bully" her for her resources, which she isn't happy about at all.
  • She wants to hang around with more child deities, but due to her base alignment, she really can only get to hang around with more "nasty" children. They aren't that bad in comparison, though. The only exception is Steven, but the Crystal Gems pose as the only problem in that regard.
  • Is sometimes seen to resemble something similar that of a Moomin.
  • She may be named after the latter's domain, but Karen of the Mermaid Princesses isn't at all amused.

    The Warden and the Inquisitor 
The Warden and The Inquisitor, Co-Gods of Those with Varied Pasts (Warden-Hero of Ferelden, Inquisitor-Herald of Andraste)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_the_warden_4910.jpg
The Warden(s)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/inquisitor_5.jpg
The Inquisitor(s)
  • Lesser God(desse)s, whose power levels depend on the class
  • Symbol: A painting of a red dragon
  • Alignment: Varies between various levels of Good and Neutral
  • Portfolios: The Hero, Asskicking Equals Authority, A Father to His Men, The Leader,
  • Domains: Community, Heroism, Nobility, Magic, War, Randomness
  • Followers: The Amnesiac, Mike
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Corypheus, all evil dragons
  • Opposes: Thresh
  • Complicated Relationship: Teyrn Loghain Mac Tir, The House of Magic
  • Ascended after Hawke successfully vouched for two more influential heroes of his world into the Pantheon. They were appreciative of being recognized
  • The two don't actually met up that often in their temple, instead spending time in other temples. The Warden employed himself in the House of Profession; The Inquisitor helps out Judge Dredd in the House of Justice.
  • All of the initial followers who have already ascended were grateful to see the three legends side by side. Their relationships depend on the gender and race of the trio. The Warden and the Inquisitor plan on bringing more of their group into the Pantheon. Merrill is happy to have two potential elves from her world as with Varric with potential dwarfs. Isabela merely brags that she got to bang the former.
    • It gets complicated once Loghain joined the in. His hatred of Orlais caused friction between him and the Warden, resulting in a duel. Whether or not The Warden executed him or not is up to debate, but the two at least have a healthier relationship... as long as s/he is not an elf. Then he lashes out against the Warden and Inquisitor. This is avoided with Hawke as s/he is always human.
    • It didn't take long before many of their companions joined in one after the other. For the Warden, Alistair, Morrigan and Leliana became staunch allies and even lovers depending on the personality. All three of them played a role in the Inquisitor's quest to seal the rift. The Inquisitor was also glad to see Cassandra make it into the Pantheon. Their relationship varied from companionship to rivals and even paramonts.
  • It would be easy to call the trio the fantasy version of Commander Shepard, but there is a key difference. While Shepard could be in two genders and different behaviors, s/he has the same backstory behind him. This group not only has different genders, but different races and classes as well. And different combinations of such will have a different backstory. Nevertheless, no one knows how to recruit a group of strangers better than these two. As such they share a bond towards each other.
    • Among Shepard's followers, the two were interested in meeting with each and every one of them. As usual, the interaction could change due to the different races, gender and class. That made meeting with them awkward, even when they are used to the different personalities of Shepard.
  • Another ally with similar upbringings in the Bhaalspawn. In fact, s/he served as a footprint for all other Western RPGs that followed. Though the Bhaalspawn could never have imagine meeting a group with an even greater amount of selves than his/her own.
  • The same can be said with Geralt, even though their followers see each other as rivals in the fantasy world. The Warden is especially fond of the man as the two hold similar jobs.
    • The Inquisitor has been seen with Ciri more often than not. It has been rumored that the former was a follower of the later before his/her subsequent ascension. Unlike her, the Inquisitor was brought up for the leadership role, putting him/her in more pressure. Still, both sympathize with each other for having to handle stress.
  • Corypheus was greatly displeased that he now has to deal with all three of his greatest enemies in the Pantheon, especially the one that led to his defeat in his mortal life. He stands opposed to any attempt to ascend a new member of their crew.
  • A recurring theme in his/her world is the mistrust of magic. Their actions affect how mages will be treated in subsequent games. It makes for a complicated relationship with the House of Magic; they are great friends if s/he sides with mages or is a mage himself, but gets strained when s/he sides with the templars in eliminating mages.
  • For those who are tired of humans saving the day all the time, the fact that an elf or dwarf could be the main character was a welcome surprise for the gods of those two deities.
  • Some would say that these two gods could have taken the title of Right Beings in the Wrong Place if not for the fact that they want nothing to do with that role anymore. They were more than happy to lend that role over to Gordon Freeman, who sympathizes with their plight.
  • Both of them are well-versed in fighting and defeating dragons, making them a threat to all evil dragons in the Pantheon. A special note goes to the Inquisitor, who faced up to 10 dragons in his/her adventure, not to mention The Red lyrium dragon he had to face in the final battle.
  • The Warden would like to distance himself/herself from the more sinister former warden known as Thresh, especially since Grey Wardens are supposed to respect character over their criminal background.
  • Has developed an odd friendship with Robin, both being potential best friends with/spouses of warrior princes, and both sacrificing their lives to slay an evil dragon-god

After things settled down, Fone Bone was brought forward to the council, who found that he, along with his cousins, were a peculiar bunch; Cartoon Creatures lost in a High Fantasy setting and becoming integral to the events of their universe. As a result, the High Gods bestowed Fone Bone a title and position in the Pantheon.
    • The title and position weren't the only things Fone Bone was bestowed with. As an added bonus, he was given a Herald; said Herald was Ted the Bug, the first friend the Bone made when he entered the Valley. Ted mainly serves as a messenger bug, bringing and sending messages from and to other deities.
  • Though a little disappointed the Great Red Dragon was nowhere to be found, Fone Bone is always welcomed to the House of Dragons, where he's befriend many of the good-aligned deities there. Spyro, Mushu and Tiki have all been curious to learn about the dragons from Fone's homeworld, while Bahamut has shown admiration for the small mammal's bravery. But out of all the deities in the house, Fone gets along best with Daenerys Targaryen, who in some ways reminded him of his good friend Thorn. The two have been seen discussing the differences between the Dragons of Westeros and the Valley among other things, and Fone has even gotten to ride atop Drogon. It was through this friendship that Fone also met Jon Snow, who instantly made him think of Thorn due to having a Secret Legacy as Aegon Targaryen.
  • There are two things Fone Bone doesn't like people doing; making fun of his nose or threatening Thorn. He may break out Kingdok's club if either happens but as Thorn is not in the Pantheon, he only needs to worry about the nose remarks.
  • Fone Bone's relationship with his cousin Phoney Bone is, to put it bluntly, extremely complicated. The pair can't even get through a single conversation without breaking into an argument, whether it's over Phoney hatching new schemes to get rich or over which deities to trust in the Pantheon; the list goes on. However, it should be noted that it was Phoney who took care of Fone and Smiley when they were children and when all is said and done, the two do care for each other and won't hesitate to look out for one another.
    • Even then, he doesn't approve of some of Phoney's "acquaintances", including Varrick, Wario, Mr. Krabs, and Daffy Duck. All of whom share the same money-obsessed, schemey behaviour as his cousin.
  • Fone, along with Phoney and Smiley, have found themselves becoming friends with the Three Stooges, note  and the Ed trio, whom share a similar dynamic to the Bone Cousins. They sometimes hang out in the House of Theatre, where they partake in the three way, slapstick free for all, before ending things off with evening drinks at the Stray Dog. note  It helps that the Bones are on good terms with the bar's owner, Greed the Avaricious. While it took a while for Fone to trust the homunculus, he did eventually warm up after hearing about his redemption and helping to protect the Pantheon from King Bradley's High Command and other threats.
  • As a fan of literature, Fone Bone found himself befriending Frodo Baggins, his cousin Bilbo, and close friend Samwise Gamgee, with all four hanging out from time to time at Bilbo's temple and sharing tales of their epic adventures together. They've also agreed to keep Phoney well enough away from the One Ring, currently stored away in Maximum Security. It's for the best.
  • Due to his past experiences with the Hooded One and The Lord of the Locusts, Fone Bone is wary around the same dark gods as his cousin; namely Gigyas, Vanitas, Makuta Teridax, and Dr. Facilier, all of them wanting to spread darkness and chaos upon the Pantheon. He's also not a big fan of Scar, as the lion reminds him way too much of the giant mountain lion Rock Jaw. Note 
    • Darkrai though is a bit of an exception to the rule. Despite being aware of the Pitch-Black Pokémon's attempts to destroy the world, Fone knows from experience that nightmares are just as important as dreams, and Darkrai by nature isn't evil. The Legendary in turn doesn't seem to mind the Bone, due in part to his connection to The Dreaming. It was this connection that lead to Fone Bone befriending NIGHTS, as well as the Dream Weaver Ysera, whom reminded the Bone of the dragon Mim.
  • While he may not fear her like Phoney does, Fone has no good words to say about Melisandre of Asshai. He outright opposes the red priestess not only for her use of blood magic, but for also sacrificing Stannis Baratheon's daughter Shireen to the Lord of Light, even if it did eventually aid in the reclaiming of Winterfell and restoring the Starks to power. This, along with their shared love for the sea, resulted in Fone becoming friends with former smuggler Davos Seaworth, who also shares a disdain for the Red Woman.
  • When he was first introduced to the House of Theatre, Fone Bone decided to join a talent show by reading an excerpt from his favourite book, Moby-Dick. The audience immediately fell asleep… As per usual. Interestingly, it doesn't seem to be the case whenever other people read it aloud.
    Smiley: Maybe it's not Moby-Dick at all — maybe it's you!
    Fone Bone: Oh, Shut up!
    • It also turns out that Fone Bone's poetry... is really bad. He personally finds them to be good but outside of a few individuals he hasn't shared them with the House of Theatre, mostly because he's shy.
    • Speaking of Moby Dick, Fone Bone was overjoyed to learn that two of the novel's characters were found in the Pantheon; Captain Ahab and the titular white whale itself. However, as a fan of the book, Fone was quick to not hang around the peg-legged captain, knowing full well how revenge brought about his downfall. It also doesn't help that he doesn't want to encounter Moby Dick at all, and not just because the last time he met the whale it had the face of Smiley Bone. It also doesn't help that there is another, even more ferocious whale lurking in the Pantheon's waters; one Monstro, to be precise. The first time Fone Bone met him resulted in a prolonged and violent chase throughout the House of Aquatic Life. Had it not been for Pinocchio, Jiminy Cricket, and his own cousins, Fone would have been swallowed whole.
  • Like Phoney, Fone Bone is well aware of the time his story was adapted into a pair of video games. While not inherently bad, he would rather not talk about them. That said, he did end up befriending Lee and Clementine, as they too originated from game adaptations of popular comics.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d09a6fd1d596d3f87d87be32fbccbc6f.jpg
Spinneret 
  • Demigoddess (Intermediate Goddess as Spider-Woman, Spinneret, Carnage Queen, or Venom)
  • Symbol: The initials MJ
  • Theme Song: Face it, Tiger (shared with Spider-Gwen)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Unlimited Wardrobe, Outfits That Fall Out Of Fashion(Sometimes Horribly), Being The Redhead Heroes Want, Smiling To Hide Pain, Victims of Executive Meddling, showing her true personality from the get-go
  • Domains: Appearance, Vanity, Pluck, Theater, Love
  • Marvel-Allies: Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Gwen Stacy, Miles Morales, All Ascended Marvel heroes, Venom, Jean Grey/Phoenix, The One Above All
  • Enemies: Abusive parents, All ascended Marvel villains including Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin, and Dr. Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus, Raynare, Juri Han, Joe Quesada (mostly from his side), Tsumugi Shirogane
  • Unknown Relationship: Felicia Hardy/Black Cat
  • Pitied by: Trip and Grace.
  • Made her appearance to the Pantheon when the Court of the Gods found out about the time she violently refused to be stuffed into a fridge by a crook, thereby establishing herself as a strong-willed, Fiery Redhead.
    MJ: Face it, tiger! You just hit the jackpot!
  • MJ is the go-to girl for experimental new fashions. She's not too shy about some of her past, "ginchy" outfits, and is aware that some day, everything in her current closet will be amusingly out of style.
  • At one point, MJ was the Goddess Of Supporting Cast, dwelling in the House of Love. She's since suffered a Magical Abortion and no one else remembers when she was married to her husband due to the Everyone Is Single law, but MJ keeps on smiling and hanging out, attending every party. Nothing's ever wrong with Mary Jane Watson, no, never, because if she starts to cry she'll never stop.
    • This seems to be her default coping mechanism whenever got mistreated by the gods of her universe again. When asked how she can keep being so positive, she just points out that if she survived being Stuffed into the Fridge twice and the whole cloning incident, she can surely handle being mistreated for a year or two.
  • Because both of them have pluck, red hair, and the initials "MJ", and they've never been seen together, it has been speculated that she is Mara Jade. Both of them reject this, Mara Jade saying that it's just coincidence and their portfolios really don't overlap. Mary Jane wistfully said that she'd like to have a lightsaber. It would come in handy.
  • Even if MJ is no longer with Peter Parker as a couple, she still cares deeply about him, and might even love him still. However, even she can only take so much of Peter's life as a crime fighter and has left him because of this. Of course, since those time always coincide with trying to make Peter more hipper, she might not have been in her right mind.
  • Doesn't know what to think of Felecia Hardy aka Black Cat. While she doesn't hate her, she doesn't like it when she flirts with Peter when he is Spider-Man. But they do agree they both got shafted.
  • A lot of her former fellow deities in the House of Love feels sorry for how she was treated by her gods in the main universe throughout the past and the live action universe, but their sympathy (and outrage) skyrocketed when the event called One More Day published that submitted her marriage with Peter to the Superheroes Stay Single route through a Deal with the Devil filled with Voodoo Shark. The only thing that lessens the stings for them is that Mary Jane herself is blissfully unaware with this development or she would probably never forgive herself and Peter.
  • One time she was able to tell that the Chameleon disguised himself as Peter and beat the crap out of him with a baseball bat. Oddly, she couldn't tell that Doc Ock was inhabiting Peter's body even though he was acting strangely. Though, it seemed nobody in the Marvel-verse couldn't tell either.
  • Had to use some Brain Bleach when she found a Alternate Universe in which she died by radiation poison by sperm from Peter Parker.
  • Was at first seen as nothing but a shallow Hard-Drinking Party Girl until she showed her true self when she stood and comfort Peter after the death of Gwen Stacey despite him yelling at her.
  • At least some members of the House of Love have been trying to hook MJ back up with Peter Parker while another half have been trying to keep the two separated. Stay clear when this happens.
  • MJ has made both Rarity and Erika Kurumi as her official fashion coordinators thanks to them having great taste in clothing. At least ninety percent of her clothes were created by Rarity or Erika.
    • Has also been hanging out with both Starfire and Hinata Hyuuga because of some share attributes
  • Hates abusive parents since she was abuse by her father growing up. She actually repress those memories and fell victim of Baron Mordo and Dormammu and gave her false memories of her childhood.
  • Interesting enough, there have been certain alternate versions of MJ who gain actual spider powers. Including one that was a lesbian and was in a relationship with Sunspyre.
    • She, along with many New Yorkers as well, also gained spider powers in an event that saw her helping Peter and other heroes defeat the Spider Queen.
  • Prides herself in being one of the few (of many) women Peter involved with to know about his Spider-Man persona before dating him. Many women came to her for advice when they have doubt about their love interest's persona or just the hardship to be a Secret Keeper.

    The Vahki 
The Vahkiunits , Unholy Avatars of Creator Hatred
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vahki.png
  • Demigods individually, Intermediate Gods in large numbers
  • Symbol: Their staffs
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral at first, turned Lawful Evil by Makuta Teridax
  • Portfolio: Mecha-Mooks, Relatively Simple Programming That Gets Corrupted Later On, Variable Language, Transforming Mecha, Horribly Reprogrammed after the Great Cataclysm, Zeroth Law Rebellion, Hated by their Creator, Permanently Destroyed
  • Superior: Makuta Teridax, (secretly) Nuparu
  • Followers: Drago Wolf, Mara Jade, Hsu Hao, Professor Hamilton
  • Allies: Sentinels, Triborg, Fulgore
  • Enemies: Mata Nui, the Toa Nuva, the Turaga of Mata Nui, the Toa Mahri, Victor Stone/Cyborg, Dexter
  • Pitied by: Mary Jane Watson, Son Chichi, good deities in the House of Narrative
  • What's worse than being hated by your target audience? Being hated by your own creator. Unfortunately, this is what happened to Vahki. Like the Bohrok, the Rahkshi before them and the Visorak after them; the Vahki were mindless drones simply following orders from their leader. Unlike the others, the main creator of Bionicle had no love towards the Vahki and set out an endgame to get rid of them. This gave them a reputation of having wasted potential.
  • Originally serving as law enforcers in the glorious city of Metru Nui, their heyday came to end when Makuta Teridax ushered in the Great Cataclysm, which caused enormous damage to the city and destroyed most Vahki. Those who survived had their programming warped in a power surge, leading them to decide that law could be best kept if there were nobody alive to break it. However, they got wiped out in the Visorak invasion and after the Matoran returned to the city a thousand years later the Turaga elected not to rebuild them. All of this happened because the guy in charge of writing their story didn't want anything to do with them.
    • To make their fate even more tragic, they actually had fans. Wasted characters indeed.
  • Teridax was able to bring a contingent of Vahki into the Pantheon to further his plans of domination. These new Vahki were reprogrammed to serve as Teridax's military strength and have entered in strategic alliances with other machine deities, making them even more dangerous. Their combat efficiency increases whenever they work alongside Sentinels, having an advantage in firepower and numbers. They also show no trouble working alongside Triborg and Fulgore, either. The Borg Queen shows some interest in their technology, but Teridax has no interest in sharing with her. Their alliance is only out of convenience.
    • Despite these upgrades, they still get curbstomped en masse. Pikachu zaps them faster than he does Team Rocket, Robocop easily dispatches them with some well-placed shots and additional heavy artillery and Dexter and Cyborg can easily hijack their programming to get them to attack each other. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano have gone on record saying the Vahki are easier to destroy than battle droids. Even Teridax himself is aware of their incompetence and knows their only real advantage is strength in numbers.
  • The original designer of the Vahki was Nuparu, now a Toa Mahri, back when he was a Matoran in Metru Nui. There are some who report that Nuparu, unhappy with the Matoran Universe's greatest scourge's control over his creations, has managed to reverse-engineer them and is now building an army of them for himself. Teridax is unworried.
  • After hearing of their ascension, the Turaga warned the Toa Nuva and Toa Mahri of the Vahki and advised them in how to dispose of them. Admittedly, the Toa have no trouble fighting them under regular circumstances, but they do not dismiss the possibility that their presence in the Pantheon could make them a bigger threat. If they are properly written, that is.
  • Given their assigned trope, some deities actually feel sorry for the Vahki's fate in the mortal plane; such as Mary Jane Watson (whose marriage with Peter Parker was undone by a certain editor who had it against her) and Son Chichi (whom her creator admitted he wasn't fond of her). Despite being on opposing sides, some part of them cannot help but feel glad the Vahki had another chance to prove their worth.
  • Surrender or run.

Quasideities

    George R.R. Martin 
George Raymond Richard Martin, God of Creators Who Kill Many of Their Creations (GRRM, Evil Santa, The Great Bearded Glacier, Fiction's Most Notorious Serial Killer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Not-your-slave---George-R-007_3334.png
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: His beard
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Takes a long time for his work to finish, Creates morally ambiguous characters, Only Known by Initials, Trolling Creator AND Lying Creator
  • Domains: Death, Ambiguity, Destruction, Knowledge
  • Underlings: All from The Song of Ice and Fire Universe
  • High Priest: Kentaro Miura
  • Allies: William Shakespeare, Andrew Hussie, Joss Whedon, Yoshiyuki Tomino, King Richard III, the House of Ambiguity
  • Friendly Rivalry: J. R. R. Tolkien
  • Opposed by: Rorschach
  • Annoyed by: Cosmos and Melkor
  • Respected by: Guts the Blind Swordsman
  • Hold the distinction as THE most feared creator in the Pantheon. Known for creating all sorts of characters and making you like most of them. only to get them killed off, many of them in the most gruesome way possible. All while the some of the most despicable people known to the multiverse to live on. Not even protagonists are safe. Ned Stark can attest to that.
    • As such, there are a wild range of opinions on those who were created by him. It can rage from adoration to hatred to outright horror at his sadistic imagination.
    • Hand-picked Kentaro Miura to be his high priest, who is notorious for sending scores of named characters to their deaths. Guts gives the author a rare form of respect and not just for choosing his creator. Anyone who can think up such horrifyingly awful characters have to be someone you don't want to mess with.
    • His most infamous event, The Red Wedding may in fact have been inspired by a similar incident in Scotland.
  • His other most consistent theme has to be his lack completely morally good characters. To him, the fight between good and evil is far too cliche. He prefers stories that have more morally ambiguous characters. Which made him disappointed in the current conflict between the GUAG and GUAE, though he's intrigued with the concept of Law and Chaos having their own factions. Prefers to work on Low Fantasy where it is easier to write stories.
  • Is a bit more fond of Shakespeare's work... possibly due to the massive body count of most of the poet's tragedies. It's most likely Martin's biggest influence in the Pantheon.
    • Would like to point out his stories kill off WAY more characters than his own.
    • One of his inspirations may well have come from Shakespeare's depiction of Richard III. Some say he is even the inspiration for fan favorite Tyrion Lannister. When he did manage to meet the king, the two had a lengthy discussion on their works. When he left, George was satisfied with his choice to admire the vilified king. It's safe to say he's a huge fan with British lore.
  • There's already a joke about him and Joss Whedon walking into a bar, killing everyone you love. The two love to put their characters through the winger, though Joss believes GRRM wholeheartedly deserves that title over him.
  • Andrew was a big fan of his work, especially with his ability to throw his followers off on who would die. Abhorrent characters aside, he can respect those who follow his craft.
  • Would like to assure his fan that he won't die before the story ends. His legendary ability to get bogged down by writing still keeps his fans worried.
  • His ascension means that the author has to share followers with Yoshiyuki Tomino. As a matter of fact, GRRM was his high priest as a mortal. Not that he could blame the Pantheon for ascending Tomino first; anyone who wipes out entire universes deserve the title for Massive Casualties.
  • Rorschach is an odd case. While George admire's the vigilante's struggles over maintaining his Black-and-White Morality, Rorschach despises the author for forsaking such arguments. Thus, GRRM enjoys observing but from a distance; any encounter will guarantee a heated argument that would likely end with a bullet into his chest.

    Samantha Carter 
Samantha Carter, Goddess of Revered Moments of Awesome (Sam, Doctor Carter, Captain Carter, Major Carter, Colonel Carter)

  • Quasideity, though many claim she has a much higher rank
  • Symbol: SG-1 badge superimposed on an exploding star

  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Intelligence-based party members, Ace Pilot, Badass Bookworm , Boyish Short Hair, Touchedby Vorlons, Alien Technology, Gender-Blender Name, Military Brat, Number Two to O'Neil, Blowing Up A Sun Once, The Squadette, Science Hero, Tomboyish Name, Workaholic Hot Scientists
  • Domains: Void, Knowledge, Good, Travel, War, Law
  • Heralds: her crew
  • Followers: Snake Plissken, Wedge Antilles
  • Allies: The Doctor, James Kirk, Squirrel Girl, Spock, McCoy, Sam and Dean Winchester, Commander Shepard, Tali'Zorah nar Rayya, Cassie Cage and Jacqui Briggs, Cammy White, Johnny Cage, Jax Briggs, Sonya Blade, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon
  • Enemies: The Master, GUAE Trollkaiger, Grand Admiral Thrawn
  • Rivals: Malcolm Reynolds
  • There was a time when there were many more Stargate Gods in the Pantheon, among them were Daniel Jackson and Rodney McCoy. Their worship was far fewer than most others, something the Master used to her advantage. Going back in time, she set events that eventually led to the loss of many lesser known gods' divinities. Hardest hit was the Stargate universe as all of them had lost their godhood. The Court of the Gods acknowledged that while the Master's meddling was reckless, there was simply no titles that they could receive at the time. Just as they were about to be sent out, the Doctor pointed out that the one Samantha Carter had performed a rather remarkable feat, namely blowing up a sun by herself. Awed by this information, enough followers flocked to her for Samantha to regain her powers. Though annoyed by the circumstances of her reascension, she is at least appreciates the Doctor's efforts. It was with a heavy heart that she saw her crew members cast out and she strives to find a way to bring them back.
    • It's little surprise that she holds a severe grudge on the Master to this day. Still, she recognizes the mad Time Lord is a dangerous foe, and usually calls on the Doctor for assistance.
  • Many of the evil gods were disappointed that Samantha Carter had escape depowering. Despite her low ranking among other deities, her remembered feat has been an inspiration for many good deities to match her feat. Many hope that someone else can finish the job.
    • Trollkaiger has taken up the task of discrediting her accomplishments in the hope of stripping Carter of her title. Unfortunately, their efforts only drew even more followers to her temple to defend her. The group has laid off the propaganda and are currently plotting a new strategy. Carter is actually thankful that at least someone thinks her actions are a bit overblown.
    • Thrawn has taken a personal interest in the task. He theorizes that merely discrediting the Brigadier General will not work. The best method to do so will be to reveal herself as the fraud she is by embarrassing her in combat. To his surprise, Samantha Carter proved to be a capable strategist herself, with their fights ending in a standstill. Still, he claims the initial skirmishes to test her skills in the hope of finding weaknesses to exploit in future battles.
  • Was met with Kirk shortly after moving her temple, comforting a fellow space officer while hoping to get some pity points. Thankfully, she let him down easy, but mainly because she admits the two share similar philosophies. She provides military support if the Enterprise is in need of some firepower.
    • Both Spock and McCoy acknowledge her similarities to Kirk, especially when they have to hear from her whenever the two have their legendary arguments. Spock is more or less reserved on her restructured title, while McCoy was sympathetic towards her plight.
  • Is not particularly fond of Malcolm's crew and his philosophy, and once sought to put the outlaws to justice. Too bad that the two often have to work together to defeat a greater foe. Nowadays, she tolerates him enough to give him a head start once the alliance is over.
  • Her revered moment gained her an admirer. Squirrel Girl was most impressed with her feat, hoping to learn how to perform more awesome feats. Carter would rather not compare herself to someone who has tussled with powerful gods such as Doctor Doom, Thanos and Galactus. Her sun feat is little more than a trinket than what Doreen is capable off.
  • Has a tendency to overwork herself when interested in a task. In fact, it's not uncommon to walk into her temple passed out on her desk after days of studying That usually calls for a trip to the House of Food to regain her strength.
    • Often, this time would be spent with Tali. Sharing a history of interest in the sciences as well as space travel, the two became fast friends. It's often Tali that has to take an exhausted Carter to the House of Food.
  • At first, Sam and Dean were wary of her appearance, given she shows a similarity to a jerkass of an angel. Thankfully, the misunderstanding was quickly resolved.
  • Spends much of her time in the House of Technology with her fellow scientists.
  • Sometimes accompanies Jacqui Briggs and Cassie Cage as their pilot in war missions whenever the latter's parents are away. Sonya, Johnny Cage and Jax hold her to a high regard despite her lower ranking to them or even their children, not only for her well-known feat but also for her piloting skills and various military awards. The two military brats has grown fond of Carter and now regards her as one of their closest mentors.
  • Another friendly member of the military, Cammy is one of the few gods who doesn't just revere her for her sun-destroying feat.
