  • A Saber from an alternate timeline where she was corrupted by Angra Mainyu after dying from her fight against True Assassin, turning her from a Knight in Shining Armor into a Fallen Hero. Even the once magnificent Excalibur was effected by the evils of the world, transforming the holy sword into something unholy. She then served Dark Sakura as her dark muscle so that Angra Mainyu's birth into the World cannot be stopped. When Shirou fought her and eventually won against her, there seems to be a trace of her former self...
    • Saber Alter started out as a Superpowered Evil Side to the normal Saber, but as the years went on she began to manifest separately and eventually become her own person with her own Saint Graph and Spirit Origin. She has now ascended under the trope of Paint It Black, due to the Black Grail turning her once splendid silver and blue outfit pure black. She cares little for her title but if it keeps her in the Pantheons, so be it.
  • Needless to say, none involved in the Fifth Fuyuki Holy Grail War were ecstatic to see her especially her original self. Saber Alter still sees her as a foolish idealist while Saber vow to never let herself be swallowed by the Black Grail's mud EVER. Though due to the Pantheons' weird nature, they can often fuse together should the time comes with Saber Alter becoming Artoria's Superpowered Evil Side once again (activated by removing her Idiot Hair), but that would require a great enemy for them to unite against; there's plentiful of them, but they're not each other's businesses until things do hit the fan.
    • The Master of Chaldea is pleased to see her again and she likewise can't help but softly smile back. He is one of the only people to bring out her soft side, with Shirou being another possible candidate. Shirou himself is still heartbroken over being forced to kill her though she and Ritsuka understands that there's nothing else he could do; her death was necessary to stop Dark Sakura after all. She still holds affection towards Shirou, both out of respect and maybe in love and more often than not, she visits his temple while the other girls aren't there and eats all the food he made. Incidentally, everytime she finishes eating his food, she calls it shit, yet she stills comes back every time for more leading him to believe that she's still the same old Saber deep down.
    • Due to her servitude to Chaldea, she now can call down her Lancer Alter and Mysterious Heroine X Alter counterparts. Lancer Alter is technically the same as Lancer Artoria but her transformation was due to her holding onto her humanity while wielding the holy spear Rhongomyniad, making her embodying The Wild Hunt instead while MHX Alter behaves like Saber Alter except all she want to do is to laze around and eat all day despite being a Sith-like Servant meant to counter the original MHX. The three don't see eye to eye a lot, but they'll put their petty rivalries aside for their Master.
    • She has also stayed close towards Sakura Matou, seeing her despair not unlike her own. Sakura herself is creeped out by the fact that she has command over a corrupted version of Saber (though she doesn't question her as her dark self) so she tries to play nice to her every time they meet despite Angra Mainyu not bringing them together anymore. Rider is still cautious of Saber Alter and is always on guard regardless of how calm the situation is and Saber Alter herself still thinks she wouldn't match up to her prowess. Saber Alter also often distances Sakura away from Rin who she thinks fails at being there for her, which Rin actually accepted much to her shock; Rin is also determined to at least be a better sister to Sakura from now on, though it might take more than a confession to sway the Dark-Tainted Tyrant.
    • Speaking of Angra Mainyu, she actually hates him for corrupting her into Dark Sakura's attack dog and making her losing her former sense of self. Angra himself expects this from her and actually stays away from her since she now has autonomy of her own will and he's currently weak to even fight her. He does consider manipulating her into his side by appealing to her wish for the Holy Grail, but quickly decides against it now that she sees it as a means to an end, not to mention not hesitating to destroy fake Grails like him.
    • Gilgamesh should be opposing her due to his beef with the Black Grail and disgusted that she's no longer the king he's chasing after, but he can't help but be enamored by her stepping on him a lot to the point he acts like a love sick puppy, in spite of Alter's low-ranked Charisma skill. Saber Alter herself is annoyed at this behaviour of his but she needed powerful allies so she's forced to let him stick aroundnote . The two can be seen in the House of Food, with Alter devouring every meal and drinking every wine she is served by him. The keyword?
    • Has found Irisviel very naive as ever and expresses sorrow when finding out she became part of the corrupted Grail, but Irisviel doesn't return that as she's more alarmed over the fact that someone she known was corrupted in an alternate timeline (and a dark one at that). Also despite the whole Fallen Hero shtick, Saber Alter isn't considered evil by her creators. At most, she's a dark hero who did what she had to do. Ironically, she's now Not So Different in many ways to Kiritsugu Emiya, the man she once despised. Despite allying with him if necessary, she actually hated him far greater than before.
      Saber Alter: Tch! The mere thought of being like you is abhorrent enough for me! Had it not been for my current Master, I would have slaughtered you on sight!
    • Both Illyasviels had their own bad experiences with Saber Alter, who do have a feeling that they are Irisviel's daughter(s) but she knows that their next meetings won't be civil. Hercules also considers Saber Alter as an enemy, since not only is she stronger than him but also defeated him and get him corrupted to serve the Black Grail. Miyu and Chloe groaned that they have to face the Dark-Tainted Tyrant yet again, who is not over her loss at their hands.
    • Neither Sir Gawain, Sir Lancelot, or Mordred like Alter that much as they are irked or horrified at her darkened nature. Saber Alter called Mordred a "failure of a knight and son", unworthy of the throne she sought unless she grows stronger and called Gawain and Lancelot failures of a knight that even she refuses to give orders to. Mordred is not surprised by this since she's well... corrupted and she has experience taking down Lancer Alter in the London Singularity, not to mention that Saber Alter no longer has access to the Grail's Near Infinite Mana most of the time and with her relying on brute strength over skill in her attacks and having a blunt nature, most would comment she's just become a lot more like her child; Gawain and Lancelot even noted that she behaves like the Goddess Rhongomyniad who is also a tyrannical version of Artoria.
    • Merlin frowned that Artoria died in a bleak timeline and seeing Saber Alter racks him with so much guilt that he would rather oppose her than fully supporting her. Alter understands his feelings but he doesn't realize that she too, is saddened by her fate that she can't happily see him once more.
    • Most people have a fondness for seeing Saber Alter with Jeanne d'Arc Alter for being much alike, backstories notwithstanding. The thing is, they have a fierce rivalry towards each other, as in "they would rather kill each other in cold blood than become true allies" fierce with their bitter opinions not helping to calm them down. They do agree on a few things, such as defending their Master and humanity in general and their own merits being worthy of each other's respect. You'll mostly catch them fighting if you see them around.
      Saber Alter: ...Mad dog.
      Jeanne Alter: Ice bitch queen.
      Saber Alter: It seems our rivalry doesn't end in Chaldea. I fully expect you to start it again, no?
      Jeanne Alter: Heh, of course I am! These days, you and I will settle this to the death real soon.
      Saber Alter: I cannot wait to pummel you into a puddle myself.
    • She sees Nero and Quetzalcoatl as rivals in being Santas around Chaldea, as she herself believe she only knows how to be a good Santa. Nero sees her determination as a challenge to one-up her and Quetz won't mind squaring her off again in the ring to see who's the better Santa. Altera, despite having guidance from her to be a Santa herself, mostly stays away from her otherwise since as the alien weapon Sefar she was defeated by King Arthur and she's even more wary of the corrupted Saber Alter, who won't hesitate to cut her down again should Altera become Sefar once more.
    • Arcueid sees her as a dark reminder of Red Arcueid/Warcueid, an alternate version of her consumed by hunger for blood; Alter may not be blood-hungry, but she is a dark threat that needed to be stopped. Alter herself is more concerned that she might become Archetype: Earth just to get rid of her, and is making sure it doesn't happen.
  • Since she is a much darker version of Artoria, her views are also reflected in darkness. For one, she believes that heroes are to be feared and hated for their actions, and that those who oppose her should be struck dead without restraint. The Hero Killer Stain disagrees with her on that, as he still thinks heroes should be looked upon and admired despite killing heroes of varying interest in the job and not hearing out heroes who sincerely want to be good because of one minute detail. Due to their disagreements, they clashed a lot and it doesn't help that he's in talks with Avenger.
    • Alter also hates those who abuse their powers; while she believes that heroes should be hated and feared for the betterment of the people, abusing powers for your own gain is unforgivable. This is why she hates Broly, Cioccolata, Kun Lan and Elpizo for doing so with Cioccolata especially for being utterly depraved and won't hesitate to use Excalibur Morgan on them. The aforementioned villains tread carefully around Alter since she will stop at nothing to kill someone, with her reasoning varying on the opponent.
    • On the subject of Fallen Heroes, she has gained rivalries in Katsumi Daido, Plutonian and Arthas Menethil with Arthas having more similarities with her. She may have looked at her past ideals in a very jaded manner, but she still holds on to them as a code of honour and she will never stoop as low as them not to mention that Arthas may not always be the paragon he was once. The fallen Kamen Rider finds it a shame as he sees potential in her powers, Plutonian is angry that she can do what he can't (which is holding onto said ideals) and Arthas lost a potential ally to stand with, but at least Saber Alter respects his kindness to his men so he's cool with that.
    • As she gave in to her predicament of being evil, she finds herself pitying Odio since he lost his bright worldview from going through so much to Save the Princess he won over who later committed suicide, rendering his journey All for Nothing and made him to become a horrible abomination across time; a far cry from her Despair Event Horizon that came from her corruption. Odio rejects her pity, thinking that she doesn't know what it's like to lose someone you love; Alter concedes to that and concludes that they will never see eye to eye in the coming days.
  • As she is now an Enemy Without, Vanitas approached her and offers her a chance to prove her strength to others, by force or otherwise. Seeing as he has little to no benevolent intentions yet still relating to him in some way, she agrees with his pact but only to watch over him. She trusts No. 96: Black Mist better despite not being an Enemy Without but that's because he thinks she's better to hang out with than Vanitas; her only condition is that he doesn't try to possess her, which he begrudgingly accepts. Kage can't get along with her despite their similar origins because given the latter's code of honor and not being a destructive as the demon, she usually prefers to fight him off than actually ally with him and even when they share a goal they barely cooperate.
    • She seem to grow a liking towards Dark Link and Cia as she relates to the latter's affection for Link reminding her of her own affections for Shirou and believes the former can truly be formidable against his good self. Cia and Dark Link at first was intimidated by her, but later became grateful for their alliance as she proves to be a formidable ally. The same can't be said for Dark Pit, who while deriving from the regular Pit doesn't oppose him that much unlike Alter; Alter herself think he should be trying to kill Pit by now while Dark Pit finds her no better than Vanitas.
    • As she gives off a vibe similar to one's Shadow, the Investigation Team and the Phantom Thieves of Hearts are wary of her and are ready to oppose her should the time comes; doesn't help that the thieves found her Palace to be a labyrinth, as Angra Mainyu's corruption made her very soul dark to the point of near-irredeemable. Saber Alter thinks their fight against her will end swiftly with them losing as she refuses to believe she can be fully benevolent again.
  • Just like regular Artoria, Saber Alter has a big appetite. However, unlike her, Alter isn't picky with her food. In fact, her favorite food is burgers. It's because of this love that she always go to Bob's Burgers, and he seems to be one of the few gods that she shows any real sign of kindness to. She did feel bad for Burgerpants who got the crappy job after failing to smuggle some Glamburgers, citing that she would have done the same in times of desperation. Burgerpants feels wary of her, not just her being attractive and evil but she would make him work ten times as hard serving her burgers but he nonetheless appreciates her mercy.
  • Sees Sayaka Miki as a fool not unlike the regular Artoria and believes that her chivalry would and did lead only to heartbreak. However, she also believes Homura Akemi's actions to be far too extreme and idealistic, disgustingly reminding her of Kiritsugu. Madoka Kaname does not take her opposing her friends lightly, not to mention not being any better than the Witches; Alter finds her idealism to be her eventual downfall despite commending her for creating a utopia once she finally got her powers (and later lost them). They all do agree that Kyubey is terrible, who always run in fear of Saber Alter cutting him down with Excalibur Morgan.
  • Artoria Alter is opposed by Kouta Kazuraba; not only does he have experience with being corrupted by a dark force, but he draws the conclusion of being hated by others just to save people to be fruitless and he still held on to hope and never turned his back to humanity in spite of becoming a god. The same goes for Judai Yuki, Tsubaki Yayoi and Artorias who were corrupted by their respective worlds' dark forces and are still moving on from that point in their lives. Kouta even agrees with Hiiro Kagami that she is a cancer to the world if she doesn't stop being a relentless villain.
    • Makuta Teridax does not corrupt anyone, but his scheming makes Alter on high alert. He asks her to join him but unfortunately for him, she still have a code of honour which disgusts him and making him reconsider how to keep fitting her in into his plans. Molag Bal corrupts and torture living beings, not unlike Avenger (minus the physical torture part) and because she hates Avenger she ended up hating Molag Bal as well. The Daedric Prince finds her interesting and hopes to break her down even further to see the despair she'll possibly have.
    • She pretty much often behaves like Darth Vader, what with the black-clad armor, charisma through force and being scarily strong. The real Darth Vader, Anakin Skywalker opposes her as she reminds him of what he has done throughout the galaxy and his son Luke believes there is some good in her underneath her darkened exterior. Saber Alter is bummed that she misses out on an effective alliance with Vader and thinks Luke is just as foolish as the Persona users to ever redeem her again.
  • Artoria Alter does however hold some respect towards Kaito Kumon's view on strength, as in how ones must use their power to crush those with power who oppose the weak, which he feels wary about given her darkened nature even if the Master of Chaldea has a metaphorical leash on her. It's also why she's allies with Vergil and Senator Armstrong, with her and the former being rare allies to the good guys of their own worlds and her having a professional relationship with the latter despite not advocating for his methods of order through chaos most of the time, which he understands.
    • She has a better footing with Akuma as he too have a code of honour and a dislike for pure evil like her; the Shun Goku Satsu does work on evil people, after all. Their sparring sessions are fruitful, so much that they became confidants who see each other as Worthy Opponents.
    • Kuroto Dan AKA Kamen Rider Genm offered a professional partnership with her and Jeanne Alter, promising them extermination of their enemies in exchange for their prowesses which they reluctantly accepted. Saber Alter finds him annoying with his megalomaniac antics, but he provides a mediation between her and Jeanne Alter that no one else dares to be aside from Ritsuka.
  • Artoria Alter once met with the talkative Excalibur. Compared to most encounters, it ended badly for him as once he started his demands towards her, she responded by stomping on him. Repetitively.
    Excalibur: C-Come on! Don't you wanna use me? I promise I won't talk when you do!
    Saber Alter: *continues stomping* No.
  • Has found the actual Angra Mainyu no better than Avenger and despite resigning herself to evil, even she sees that Ahriman's attempts to defeat Ahura Mazda will lead him to nowhere. Ahriman himself feels that she hasn't fully succumb herself to evil and hopes he can be the one to fully tempt her.
  • Marathoned through a bunch of Christmas movies and specials and because of that, gained the holiday spirit. She then decided to temporarily become the Pantheon's Santa Claus. She even got her own Santa outfit, black of course. She even had her own sleigh called Llamrei II and was pulled by the reindeer skeletons provided by Jack Skellingtonnote . To the surprise of many, and even despite Alter calling herself "Evil Santa", Alter took her role as Santa very seriously to the point she was considered Lawful Good. She gave presents to all children, regardless of alignment, like the female child version of Jack the Ripper.
    • This actually gained the respect of Santa Claus and Nicholas Saint North, as much as they hate to admit it at first; they initially distrust her usual behaviour off the holidays but her dedication to giving gifts changed that. She does agree with them that Robot Santa Claus and SCP-4666 make bad Santas, giving the holiday a bad name.
  • Saber Alter avoids Alucard, not just because he has no mercy on Santas but that he can potentially outmatch her and worse yet, give her the worst death possible or even assimilate her into him. Alucard himself is happy that in spite of being corrupted, she still fights for humanity because Ritsuka changed her for the better; he would love to spar with her but was disappointed that she does avoid him.
  • During the summer, she becomes a maid and uses Cuiraiser Alter as her main Noble Phantasm, earning her the nickname "Maid Alter". As the regular Artoria is very competitive, it's not surprising to see Alter behaving the same and in any competition, the other competitors are making sure she doesn't try to win underhandedly.
  • "Cry. It's time you come crashing down."

Intermediate Gods

    Black Shadow 
Black Shadow, God of Dark Villain Outfits (The Emperor of Brutality)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9ada1c99a2c51b3e371da3afa2cd0ea3.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Black Bull (his F-Zero machine)
  • Theme Song: Theme of Black Shadow (F-Zero GX)
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Domains: Evil, Blackness, Shadows, Speed, Vehicles
  • Portfolio: Obvious Villain, Stereotypical Bad Guy Name, Black-Wearing Evildoer (Although the Black Looks More Like Purple), Infamously Cheating A.I.
  • Herald: Blood Falcon.
  • Allies: Several members of the Council of Shadows, Bowser, Ridley, Dark Link, Megatron, Master Xehanort, Nitros Oxide.
  • Enemies: Captain Falcon, Viewtiful Joe, Batman, most of Batman's Rogues Gallery, Ryu, Ghost Rider, all good-aligned Kamen Riders, most Autobots, several gamer deities and mortals.
  • Rivals: Beelzemon, Darth Vader, The Green Biker Dude.
  • Respects: Norio Wakamoto.
  • It's not exactly clear how Black Shadow managed to ascend into the Pantheon, as he didn't appear to have been observed or under consideration for any seat. It's believed that the Council of Shadows may have pulled a few strings to allow it to happen, but the reasons behind that are still unknown. At the very least, he appears to know Ganondorf well.
    • He wants to kill Captain Falcon in front of several viewers, which is why he eagerly awaits for the next divine racing tournament in order to execute his evil plan.
  • Many deities recognize him as the guy who got Falcon Punched by Captain Falcon along with the whole galaxy. He claims that this event only happened in an alternate timeline, and that it wasn't even the Falcon Punch that ultimately defeated him, but no one seems to listen.
    • In any case, he respects this specific version of him, in particular his voice.
    • Due to both of them having the same name and voice, Black Shadow suspects that Ryu might be related to Ryu Suzaku, possibly even the same person.
  • Black Shadow didn't take much time to take over the racetracks of the Pantheon after ascending. He's a tough one to catch up, as his machine, the Black Bull, is known for being one of the fastest and strongest machines in F-Zero.
    • To make things worse, Black Shadow can be a scarily competent pilot, sometimes a bit too competent, with many suspecting that he might be cheating somehow (which wouldn't be surprising). Black Shadow credits his skill to the "Creators" of his universe, whatever those may be.
    • His skill has actually become infamous among mortals who attempt to challenge him, especially after leading one of them to a legendary rant.
    • He heard about Darth Vader's past as a pod-racing champion and thus challenged the Sith Lord to a race at the House of Travel in order to test the skill of one of the Pantheon's most famous deities. As they fiercely raced against each other, an "accident" that was definitely not intentional on Black Shadow's part caused both vehicles to crash, ending the race with no winner. Black Shadow admits that Vader is not a completely worthless racer and plans to crush him next time.
  • Black Shadow has shown interest in working with the Decepticons, believing that both him and Megatron can benefit from technology that the other possesses.
  • Sometimes confused with Batman due to looking a lot like him, which probably explains why he keeps getting attacked by The Joker and Co every now and then.
    • Batman himself has kept a close eye on Black Shadow, believing that the mysterious Black Shadow Group led by him might bring trouble to the Pantheon. The Dark Knight is already prepared for him though, having attached a Tracking Device to the Black Bull in order to monitor Black Shadow's movements and upgrading his Batmobile so that it may keep up with the Black Bull's power.
  • He is also sometimes confused with Satan, which is not strange at all as the Pantheon already has many Satans and Black Shadow wouldn't look out of place among them.
    • Not that Black Shadow doesn't have any ties with the literal underworld, as he is subservient to his universe's own version of Satan, Deathborn. This alone has put him on the sights of the Ghost Rider, one of the few able to keep up with him.
  • Suspected to have a connection with Master Xehanort due to his Heartless-like outfit and shared magical ability to create Evil Knockoffs of other heroes.
  • "WATASHI WA SHINEN. SHINENZUUU!" - Black Shadow about his undying self and dreams, circa 2003
    • "FARUCON PANCHI!" - Captain Falcon about the above sentence, circa 2003
  • Also has a seat in Villainous Appearances.

Lesser Gods

    Agent K and Agent J 
Agent K and Agent J, Divine Agents of The Men in Black (K: Kevin Brown | J: James Darrel Edwards III)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/69993b699414cd256b9ecb4720ed017e.jpg
  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: A pocket neuralyzer
  • Theme Song: "Men In Black" and Black Suits Comin' (Nod Ya Head)
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral as a whole (K is Lawful Good on occasion, and J has shades of Chaotic Good)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Illusion, Inquisition, Knowledge, Protection
  • Heralds: the rest of the organization by extension
  • Allies: Griffin (one of the aliens under their custody), The SCP Foundation, Captain Kirk, Rosalina, Mamizou Futatsuiwa, Michael Jackson, XCOM, General Fletcher, Professor Paradox, The Elite Beat Agents
  • Enemies: Boris the Animal, Giygas, Lavos, Frieza, Boros, Black Doom, Lord Brevon, ADVENT, The Combine, Facehuggers, Dr. Wallace Breen, Thanos, Ragyo Kiryuin, the Harvesters, the Headcrabs, SCP-1548, The Mars Attacks!Martians, The Colour Out of Space
  • Opposed by: Danny Fenton
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Dessler
  • The Men in Black is an organization that is dedicated to eliminating malicious aliens (and wiping the memories of those who witnessed such aliens after the aliens have been fought), as well as keeping an eye on the less villainous aliens. Two of the most prominent members of the organization are Agents K and J. Although other members of the organization are involved, these two tend to be the ones that are the most recognizable. They have bases established in the House of Defense and the sub-Houses of Colored Outfits and Plain Neutral.
  • Applies to the organization as a whole:
    • While protecting the planet, they have frequently worked together with Captain Kirk and Rosalina, two of the guardians of the House of Time and Space, keeping an eye out for any invaders.
    • There are rumors that Michael Jackson is a confidant of theirs had attempted several times to be signed up as an Agent M. Any conclusive evidence of this has since been neuralyzed and neither the organization nor the King of Pop are giving answers.
    • So far, only two of the aliens from their realm have appeared in the Pantheon; Boris the Animal, and Griffin. The MIB are keeping a close eye if anyone else shows up, specially considering the damage "Edgar" and Serleena could cause.
    • With aliens of such world-ending capacity like Giygas and Lavos in the Pantheon, the Men in Black have quickly deemed them as two of their biggest threats. Of course, those two are not the only aliens that's being targeted.
      • Frieza is also on their blacklist. A slew of other dangerous aliens such as Boros, Black Doom, and Lord Brevon have made the agents more prepared to counter any damage the aliens cause. Really high on the list are the Harvesters, who are not only deadly, but harbor a grudge against J for some reason.
      • They are also very wary of the G-Man, a very different kind of Man in Black…
      • A close eye is also being kept on both Ragyo Kiryuin and Wallace Breen, who have been largely allying themselves with various aliens to cause trouble for humans (even if Breen's reasons to ally with the aliens were meant to be well-intentioned).
    • One of the more unusual aliens the organization encountered was Dessler, who was originally evil at first, but then changed himself for the better. Even though he and the MIB are (sort of) on the same side for now, the organization is still keeping an eye on Dessler.
    • For some unexplainable reason, they (or more accurately, the organization in general) are convinced that Lady Gaga is an alien. No one has even tried to comment on why they think that is the case and Lady Gaga herself has no idea what to make of it.
    • They have a pretty strong partnership with the X-COM soldiers when it comes to dealing with the aliens. Of course, both organizations are kept separate from each other and no major plans of a merger between the two is going to happen anytime soon, but they keep touch quite often.
      • A partnership was also established with the SCP Foundation, who are all about maintaining a masquerade just like them.
    • Danny Fenton is not a fan of the organization, given his experience in dealing with a similar group known as the Guys in White.
    • Rumors have been spreading around that the organization is much more ruthless than it seems to be, along with K being a more unscrupulous person. Any attempts to talk to them about that only elicit confused reactions from the duo (and the other agents of the organization).
      • In addition, some think the organization might have also had a hand in monitoring various paranormal creatures that aren't limited to aliens. For now, the focus is placed largely on monitoring aliens and keeping them in check.
    • Some deities have been trying to use their neuralizers if said deity has witnessed something so bad they wished to forget it and the Brain Bleach in the Treasury is being used by someone else. Most of this happens if the deity encounters the agents by chance. The agents have no comment on this particular matter.
    • As expies of them, the Elite Beat Agents actualy got into their good graces, especially hearing that they managed to rally the humans together to help fight off aliens by The Power of Rock. It's also something of note that the EBA also have an Agent J.
  • Applies to only K and J:
    • Their initial encounter with Futaba Sakura was hostile on her end due to her terrible history with them. J tried to get to cool down by explaining her reason to them.
      • After hearing that the Men in Black in her world basically straight up lied to her that her mother committed suicide and blamed her for it, J assures that the MIB he's in would never do such a thing... but K didn't immediately support the statement, leading J to be suspicious and to confront him. The elder agent then finally stated that what Futaba's will-readers did was unnecessarily cruel and that he was sorry she had to go through so much pain. By the end of the day, they parted on awkward terms.
  • Exclusive to K:
    • As a fellow protector and one of The Comically Serious, K has gotten along with Cable, who also reminds him of his younger self.
    • K (and the rest of the organization sans J) thought Elvis Presley was an alien who just returned to his home planet rather than die. He was thus disappointed that the Pantheon's Elvis seems more human than he thinks, though he enjoys his music anyways. Elvis himself meanwhile is rather baffled that the Men In Black (sans J) would think he's an alien.
  • Exclusive to J:
    • There was a point in time where J had to travel back in time after the past was messed up by a revenge-driven alien in order to restore the present. Because of that, J is on good terms with other heroic time-travelers. Unsurprisingly, J has been keeping an eye on those who use time travel for evil purposes.
      • And now said alien has ascended, though by this point, he's just another target on their list.
    • Is keeping a sharp eye on Deadshot when he can, given since he can also look just like him.
  • Would you please look at this red light? *flash* Troper, there is no entry here. The text you saw was a hallucination caused by swamp gas from a weather balloon trapped in a thermal pocket reflecting the light from Venus onto your computer screen.
  • Also seen in the House of Ambiguity.

  • Holly Golightly is a young café society girl in the Upper East Side of New York. A child bride who escaped her impoverished Texas roots at the age of fourteen, Holly makes a living as a companion to various wealthy and important men, who lavish her with money and expensive presents.
  • Has once resided in the Pantheon before as the Goddess of Pure Iconic Perfection before someone pointed out that it wasn’t a real title. However, the Court has found out that her Little Black Dress is part of her iconic appearance.
  • Was surprised to see others inspired by her fashion sense, with varying degrees of approval. Apparently, she uses her dark glasses and her clothing to conceal her identity. Still, she appears to be on good terms with those who have wore a black dress including Betty Boop, Carmelita Fox, and Buffy Summers (even though she initially considered wearing one as "Hi, I'm an enormous slut!" before she wore one herself).
    • However, she might not want to go near Lust despite her also wearing a black dress.
  • Is sometimes compared to Jay Gatsby given their charismatic nature and both of them driven to dreams ideals that ultimately didn’t go well for them. Holly has taken pity towards the man upon hearing his fate. She also takes pity towards Norma Desmond as she felt that the former star is who she could have ended up like if she wasn’t careful.
  • She might be one of a few good(ish) cigarette holder-users in existence (although ironically, it was supposed to be an affectation that Holly assumes to cover her insecurity). Several other deities mistake her for a villainess because of it. She doesn’t take it kindly and has butted heads with Cruella de Vil over it.
  • Her relationship with Inspector Clouseau is a bit complicated. While the two are on cordial terms in account of having the same director, Holly thinks that he’s quite silly and easy to fool and would keep a distance from him at certain locations knowing he’s clumsy and would get her beautiful dress dirty.
  • Has been given odd looks upon encountering Fred Flintstone. For some reason, whenever she hears his voice, she couldn’t help but think of her friend Sally Tomato.
  • She once had a cat who’s simply named Cat, whom she doesn’t claim as her own because “we don't belong to each other: he's an independent, and so am I” and has felt guilty for briefly abandoning him in the streets when it was pouring. The House of Felines has taken pity on her upon hearing that.
  • George Costanza, upon encountering her, couldn’t help but be reminded of the time he read the book as part of the book club he joined. Apparently, he mixed up plot points about the book and the movie and was humiliated by it.
  • Whatever you do, don't play this for her. Holly is not amused at being indirectly responsible for such a bland love song.
