Smaug, God of Treasure Hoarding (Smaug the Golden, the Magnificent, Chiefest and Greatest of Calamities)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/smaug_6972.jpg

  • Theme Song: Score by Howard Shore
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Collecting treasure, being feared by all, a missing scale, Pride, Greed, hostility at minor offenses, clever wit, claims of grandeur, searing fire breath, psychological torment.
  • Domains: Treasure, Destruction, Greed
  • Followers: Glaurung, Scatha the Worm, Chrysophylax Dives, Ladon, The fucanglong, the Red Dragon, SCP-1779, Equestrian dragons, The Snowager, Lofwyr

  • Evil counterpart to: Nozdormu
  • Odd Friendship: Daenerys Targaryen
  • The coming of Smaug was fast and violent. In a flash, the dragon had torn his way into the House of Commerce breathing fire and tearing apart defenses. Eventually he had caused enough chaos to create a temporary evacuation which he used to hoard the riches of the house together for himself. He didn't have long to enjoy these godly spoils as he was quickly opposed by those he had just stolen from to include the likes of Wario and Scrooge McDuck. These conflicts escalated continuously until the King of Dragons and finally the Dragonborn himself were sent to drive off Smaug. Although driven off, the dragon did not leave empty handed and was able to carry with it a portion of the treasure into an empty temple he claimed as his own.
  • As his great wealth was stolen from others long ago, Sly Cooper has been preparing his gang for a few raids against the dragon, while Carmen Sandiego was ready to live a childhood fantasy of robbing a dragon itself. These moves have caused Smaug to attack the House of Crime almost as readily as the House of Commerce. The Pantheon as a whole has become a little more violent with the dragon's inclusion.
  • Tried to swallow the young dragon Spike whole when the would be thief tried to eat one of his many gems. Fortunately for Spike, he was able to learn not to antagonize Smaug further.
  • When not trying to build his own wealth or defending it from burglars, the dragon is normally buried in his gold for a long nap. A good number of gods breath easier when these times roll around.
  • Following his initial attacks, Queen Alextreszia has always volunteered to subdue Smaug should he attempt to run attacks on other Houses again. Smaug is particularly annoyed with this troublemaker because she constantly berates him as if he were her disobedient child.
  • Chester A. Bum, who was reviewing a movie at the time of Smaug's arrival, returned to the House of Commerce to find a massive hoard of gold and, unaware of Smaug's presence, began helping himself to the pile. When Smaug made himself known, Chester's abject horror and the quick return of the gold amused Smaug enough that he let Chester flee unharmed. However, Smaug has said he won't be so forgiving if Chester tries to steal from him again.
  • Has been compared with the bronze dragon Nozdormu because of their tendency to stay in his temple and rarely leave. He just laughs about that statement, claiming that he is not an old geezer who is lost in his own Mystical world of magic and generally does nothing productive with his temple. At least he has gold.
  • Much to the Pantheon's shock, Daenerys Targaryen is friends with Smaug. When she approached him asking for an alliance, Smaug was unimpressed. His opinion of her changed when she was left unscathed from his dragon fire. In High Valyrian, Dany had said, "I am the Blood of the Dragon. Fire cannot kill a Dragon." Impressed with Dany's gumption, Smaug is now one of Dany's main allies, much to the dismay of Tywin and Littlefinger. Of course, Dany now has to keep the peace between Smaug and Alextrazsa.
  • Smaug got enraged upon learning the little person who forced him out of his cave and thus caused his death is in the Pantheon. One of the few things that makes him leave his treasure is an attempt to kill Bilbo, though the hobbit has evaded him so far.
  • Sometimes his temple gets visits from people who mistake Smaug's voice for Khan, Doctor Strange, or Sherlock. He's definitely not pleased at this.
  • he once agreed to do an interview with Stephen Corbert..... it went as well as you'd expect.
  • Also present in the House of Dragons.

    Ultra Greed 
Ultra Greed, God of Throwing Away Money (Ultra Greedier)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultra_greed.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Greed Machine
  • Theme: Chorus Mortus
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Greed, Summons Keepers, Taking high amounts of damage to kill, Final boss of Greed Mode, Stealing coins, Using money as projectiles, Spinning, Turns Gold, Gambling To Attack, Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever, Turning things to gold, Stone Wall, Noose Necktie
  • Dominions: Money, Gold, Greed, Gambling, Gauntlets, Final Bosses
  • Herald: Super Greed
  • High Priest: Million Gunman
  • Followers: Various Keepers and Greeds
  • Allies: Merasmus, The Keeper, King Dice, the Devil
  • Rivals: Any Greedy figures in the Pantheon
  • Enemies: Isaac, Cuphead and Mugman, Mr. Krabs, Sayori
  • Popular with: Blood Knights, The House of Combat!
  • A mysterious door was found in the House of Commerce, appearing silently through the mist of hectic activity within the Pantheon. Titled "Greed Mode", it functions as a gauntlet that spawns in more and more difficult enemies. After someone endured the challenge they soon were met with... a bunch of Greeds. After clearing them out they then fight the actual Final Boss of Greed Mode, Ultra Greed. After defeating him (which took a lot longer than expected), they opted to kick him out until they recalled the entirety of his attacks rely on throwing away money at others where he was officially deified. Ultra Greed really didn't mind, but didn't plan to waste such an opportunity and accepted. He would of preferred Flunky Boss, but that was already taken by Onyxia and he didn't feel like fighting over it.
    • His first step as a new deity was to update Greed Mode since the enemies present isn't anything too noteworthy or threatening even in the later floors and the Pantheon's general populace wouldn't even think of it as challenge should he leave it that way. It originally started pulling Mooks from within the Enemies Sub-House but after a mix of complaints for a lack of variety and annoyance of being pulled over and over again he had to pull members from organizations and races to mitigate both problems. Of course that ended up with them complaining about taking their men without warning. Long story short, there's a lot of enemies you can potential encounter in his gauntlet as the Court of Gods allowed for him to pull many, many types of enemies throughout many different worlds.
      • He also updated the item pool since his challenges are no longer limited to Isaac. It got really popular thanks to the rapid influx of Blood Knights alongside many members from the House of Combat!, though he had to offer up a better reward for their troubles. Apparently a video showing Isaac turning into another Greed, in other words dying, doesn't cut it...
    • And speaking of Isaac, the aforementioned little boy wasn't happy to hear that one of the Final Bosses were in the Pantheon, but still runs the gauntlet as usual. There isn't really much say about their relationship since it's hard to fit Ultra Greed with the fact that Isaac's adventures were nothing more than hallucinations born from suffocation inside a toy chest.
  • There was another candidate for his title: Million Gunman, the 9th Ranked Assassin in the UAA, known for wielding a golden Mauser that fires rolled up dollar bills. In the ascension process he kept repeating on and on about how he either asks others if they're greedy like he is or how he shoots money, sometimes interrupting himself. In the end, he ended up as a High Priest to Ultra Greed. Even if Million Gunman didn't end up annoying everyone, Travis' Herald Shinobu would've diced him anyways (although he did took his loss against her well, surprisingly). His duties only really involve him being anther boss people have to fight in Greed Mode, though fortunately for him (and unfortunately for everyone else) he gets access to his elevators to teleport all around the room. Supposedly, he only appears to those who try and cheat the gauntlet.
  • A thing to keep noted about Ultra Greed is that his health scales to whatever sort of power the enemy has. In actuality, he's not as durable as you may think but fighting him sure doesn't feel that way. Those who have trouble dealing damage will find the battle will take ages to finish. Add the fact that he can also heal himself a little bit through heart coins and money itself, and you got a fight in which you have to outlast to win. That being said Ultra Greed's isn't adamant on the overabundance of projectiles, unlike some other bosses from his game. His second form has him fight as a gold statue with new attacks like golden brimstone lasers along with existing attacks now exploding. This form is only available through Greedier Mode, so no cruel surprises in the regular mode. For this reason he gets along quite well with Merasmus mostly due to the fact that they are both highly hard to kill bosses with lots of health. He sometimes appears as boss during Greed Mode as a result.
  • Because of the trope he rules over, there was a wide slew of people out following him to hopefully get whatever cash that's been thrown in battle. To their disappointment, most projectiles just get destroyed upon impact. It doesn't mean that no currency is dropped but the ones that do are disproportionate to the ones he throws out willy-nilly. And since he can heal with them, however little it actually does, by coming in contact with them it doesn't make for a great scheme to get rich. But of course, that doesn't stop people from collecting it anyways. Mr. Krabs, for instance, has done so in the past.
  • His appearance is basically a giant version of Greed, with the added noose around his neck, which earned ire from Sayori as a result as many start making jokes about her suicide when he's around. And it doesn't help that he's supposedly not too far behind to get people to make said jokes. One striking feature people tend to note about Ultra Greed is how he has a really large and nice ass while walking. Then there's the fact that its the ass of a gargantuan corpse monster. Not so nice anymore. Apparently he originally was supposed to have a beard and have only a single tooth. More specifically, his appearance was supposed to be based off one of his creators.
  • His Keepers are not to confused by the Keeper, notable for the same thing (at least by technicality) and his incredibly complex dungeon design. Ultra Greed could't really believe the talk of how much of a nice boss he is until some of his minions flocked towards his dungeon. "Meeting" the man himself, he had to admit: He really is a nice guy. Although miffed about that, he decided to let them go and gained an ally out of the dungeon designer to get some tips to add help spice up his gauntlet.
    • And speaking of confusion, Ultra Greed himself is not to be confused with the other Greed. The Ultra part of his name is important.
  • Ultra Greed got along well with King Dice due to being a fellow runner of a gauntlet of sorts whilst being undoubtedly evil. Through the literal Card-Carrying Villain, he would then become allies with the Devil himself (or, King Dice's Devil at least). The Cup Bros weren't pleased to hear of his involvement with their greatest enemies and has fought him while he was assisting the Devil. He at first didn't get what was so special about the Cup Bros, although he quickly he realized the error of his ways. Even as he tried to get the jump on them by faking his defeat by turning into a golden statue then into Ultra Greedier, they still sent him with his tail between his legs.
  • Can turn certain inanimate objects into gold with his Ultra Greedier form by touch, like turds for instance. It's not something he can weaponize, but it's still something he is capable of. Some folks follow him whenever he's walking around to steal away whatever got solidified into gold to make a profit or to hang in their temples. It's at least better than depending on his projectiles. And for the record, no, there's no relation to the Golden Turd as that's Rogers's doing. He can't create gems alongside it.

Intermediate Gods

    Tsunade 
Tsunade, Goddess of Compulsive Gamblers (Fifth Hokage, The Legendary Sucker, Granny Tsunade)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/naruto_tsunade_6.png
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: A purple diamond
  • Alignment: Neutral Good with Neutral tendencies
  • Portfolio: Compressed Vice that Come To Dominate One's Identity, Ninja, Combat Medic, Loves to Drink yet Can't Hold Her Liquor, Bare-Fisted Monk, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Older Than They Look, Super Strength
  • Domains: Good, Healing, Trickery, Strength
  • Followers: Setzer Gabbiani, Yumeko Jabami
  • Allies: All Godd-aligned Naruto deities, Remy LeBeau/Gambit, Sven the Rogue Knight, Marge Simpson, Asuka Langley
  • Enemies: Orochimaru, GUAE Trollkaiger
  • Fears: Skarlet, Jedah, Sorin Markov, Eliza
  • She initially served as the co-goddess of Compulsive Gamblers with Marge Simpson after battling her to a draw at Texas Hold-Em. But after an evaluation, it was decided that Tsunade would remain the sole holder of the title. She still visits her in the House of Personal Appearances and has promised not to bring any cards with her.
  • May not have ascended at all without the persistence of Naruto, convincing her to be the 5th Hokage after the 3rd's death. She proved to be an effective ruler despite the gambling.
  • Fought harder than any other deity to bring Sakura into the fold. Her ascension was met with a bone-crushing hug followed by a party in the House of Health & Medicine. It was a memorable experience.
  • One can't talk about her without her Sannin members, both of whom now give her conflicting opinions. She still holds a grudge of Orochimaru for betraying the Hidden Leaf village, and while he is less malevolent, she remains unconvinced of his redemption. She knew of Jiraiya's feelings of her. Hell, she even nearly killed him for spying on her. But she holds grief for his death at the hands of Pein. She was glad he remains in the Pantheon, just that he can't go back.
  • While she has done her best to quell her habits, it is stated that she will never deny any bet given to her, deity or mortal.
  • Although stationed in the House of Commerce, Tsunade is also an extremely gifted healer who has many times assisted the House of Health & Diseases in solving difficult cases and successfully treating difficult injuries, as well as a frighteningly powerful combatant who uses a combination of decades of experience and her unique style of Super Strength to devastating effect when she ever has to get serious. In particular, her "Strength of 100 Healings" technique is held up as the pinnacle of techniques for combat medics throughout the Pantheon.
  • Despite this, don't expect her to stay there for long as she has a crippling fear of the mere presence of blood. Trollkaiger has taken advantage of this, using her fear against her for pranks as well as to make their getaway.
    • Unfortunately for her, there are plenty of blood related deities in the Pantheon. And most of them won't hesitate to use this against her. The GUAG offered to help her get over this fear as it makes her vulnerable against such foes.
  • Her legendary strength could strike down any person in her universe in a single blow. Sven has taken note and is considering a test of strength with her.
  • Should not be confused to be the Goddess of Tsunderes. Asuka retains that title and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. But there is no denying she has some elements of the emotion, especially the "Tsun" part. That helped build a friendship between the two.
  • Applied to be a part of the next Poker Night game. She had to be shooed out of the previous two games but remains confident the third time will be the charm. That remains to be seen.
  • Whatever you do, do not ever call her an old hag or grandma. She won't hesitate to use said strength to punt you into the atmosphere. Also, don't try to take a peek while she's changing. Jiraiya nearly died in such an attempt.

Lesser Gods

    Anise Tatlin 
Anise Tatlin, Goddess of Love Based on Wealth
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/AniseProfile_213.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Symbol: Anise's doll, Tokunaga
  • Portfolio: Gold Digger, Token Mini-Moe, Girlish Pigtails, Ambiguously Brown, Child Mage, Light 'em Up, Casting a Shadow, Genki Girl, Stepford Smiler, The Mole
  • Domains: Magic, Money, Love
  • Allies: Luke fon Fabre, Tear Grants, Jade Curtiss, Guy Cecil, Natalia Luzu Kimlasca Lanvaldear, Sophie, Rom and Ram, Wendy Marvell, Neptune, Plutia, Yukiho Hagiwara
  • Cantor Anise Tatlin is the guardian to Fon Master Ion, and member of the Malkuth military.
  • Despite being only 13 and constaantly claiming that she is a "beautiful maiden", Anise is perfectly capable of holding her own in battle as she can not only use magic but also control her doll, Tokunaga to beat her enemies to death.
  • Due to her parents being gullible beyond belief, they frequently lost a lot of money to scams so Anise frequently falls for anyone who has a lot of money.
    • She hasn't had any luck with this clearly. However, what Anise really wants is to become the first Fon Master so she can reform it the way Ion wanted it, a religion that saves people rather than control them. It's a hard road to walk as there's a lot who wouldn't let her live down that she caused Ion to die when she could have prevented that, thus cursing at her name and hoping she will fail, but not only she will persevere, the rest of her friends are more than willing to stand up for her.
  • Anise has become good friends with Neptune due to the both of them being very cheerful most of the time and also due to the both of them sharing vocal similarities.
  • It's not uncommon to see Anise with Rom, Ram or Wendy Marvell due to all of them being children who show exceptional skill at magic.
  • One time when Anise went to the house of Otherness, she spotted Sophie there and Anise was very surprised to see Sophie wearing her uniform. After Anise asked Sophie where she got one of her uniforms from, Sophie said she had received it as a gift from someone a long time ago. Since then the two of them have been good friends.
  • Sometimes when she goes into battle, Tokunaga will be wearing a different hat or hairstyle usually ranging from something like a viking helmet to Presea or Heihachi's hairstyle.
  • She's not very pleased with her underdeveloped body because supposedly she's Older Than She Looks. She has stated that one day, she'll get as big as one of the Poly Racks. Any god that feels sarcastic enough usually replies with something along the lines of, "No way you could get melons like those!"
    • For that reason, she also likes to execute what she calls 'Operation Sexy Anise', in which she fights in nothing but her swimsuit. She doesn't seem to care that instead of everyone getting 'mesmerized', everyone instead starts ganging up on her, or at least reacts with mere confusion. However they react, it's never the effect that Anise was hoping for.
