Hank Henshaw, God of Irrational Hatred (Cyborg Superman, Cyborg II, The Man of Tomorrow)

  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A red and black version of the Superman "S" shield
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil

  • Hank Henshaw was once an astronaut who was part of the doomed Excalibur mission with his wife and two of his friends. A solar flare mutated them horribly and ultimately led to their deaths. Though his body disintegrated, Henshaw's mind survived and learned to control machines. After all of this, Henshaw had gained a delusional belief that Superman was somehow responsible for his woes, and the ability to inhabit technology that could match the Man of Steel.
  • Possesses an Irrational Hatred of the Man of Steel that surpasses even Lex Luthor's. As the solar flare was indirectly caused by Superman throwing the Eradicator into the sun, he thinks Superman should be held responsible. During the time he has dead, Henshaw managed to create a cyborg clone of him and posed as him Back from the Dead, to ruin his reputation by strong-arming Mongul into working for him, bombing Central City and planning to lay waste to the planet. Naturally, he has often been in conflict with the Green Lantern Corps as well.
  • Recognized some commonality with Zamasu, specifically his Goku Black component. They both despised a hero, eventually leading them to become homicidal maniacs who stole the visage of that hero. While the Cyborg-Superman is willing to work with the mad Kai, it is only to achieve their mutual vengeance, as Henshaw doesn't trust Zamasu and while Zamasu thinks he is a useful tool in his Zero Mortals Plan he is still a dangerous mortal not to be trusted either. Though they both consider how it could ultimately benefit them both if they actually succeed, where Henshaw would likely allow himself to be included among the mortals destroyed.
  • The GUAM requested he be banned from the House of Technology, due to being a dangerous and deranged technopath. Namely they were afraid he would try to hijack them and that house, having once notably controlled an entire planet's population of machines(though not without considerable strain on his part). The Grox have banned him for ever getting close lest he hijack them and discover the many secrets of their cybernetics and other technological marvels.
  • Decided to try and control Axl and X. Axl was because his abilities to shapeshift and copy other machines would be incredibly useful, X because of his unlimited potential and weapon copy abilities. His "Cyborg Superman" self being but a physical shell, his consciousness managed to hijack a Reploid to do his bidding. In this body he met Sigma, who agreed to a mutual alliance in order to deal with both of their enemies. Of course the two don't trust each other and are waiting for the opportunity to try and override each other's programming. Since Henshaw was a living being, it is unclear what will happen if they try. Most don't want it to get that far.
  • A prior crossover alliance showed up with SKYNET. It is hard to deny a Terminator homage with the Cyborg-Superman, and during the time Superman and the Terminator crossed over the Cyborg formed a cross-time alliance with SKYNET. Of course now SKYNET is much more aware that the alliance is going to be a volatile one due to Henshaw's insanity. Linkara once riffed on the first issue, and it was when his arch-enemy Mechakara first appeared. Naturally, he was apprehensive of Henshaw's ascension.
  • One hell of a Death Seeker, though as Doomsday found out he dies on his terms. The Cyborg-Superman is one of the very few allies of the Anti-Monitor since he promised to kill Hank Henshaw, and has promised again to help Henshaw find oblivion so long as he follows orders. He served the Sinestro Corps for a time as part of this endeavor, though Sinestro has stated he has no further use of the Cyborg.
  • Sought out the GUAD for the sole purpose of having them help him die, even if it means everything else must. He had tried to get Nekron's attention during the Blackest Night, but as he had no heart he and the Black Lanterns couldn't even sense him. That is more or less true now, but various living deities serving destruction's cause have served as interpreters of the Cyborg Superman. Henshaw supposes there is an irony in the only beings who sought out what Nekron was offering were ignored by him.
  • Though they absolutely want nothing to do with him, Henshaw feels some pity towards Fujiwara no Mokou for wanting death, yet being completely incapable of doing so. Or Suzaku Kururugi for not being able to end his own life. He deeply relates to Albedo Piazzolla given their similar immortal condition and wanting to die, along with being Ax-Crazy.
  • Sees himself as Captain Ahab and Superman as his white whale. He hates Superman so badly that he deliberately used a magic space stone to turn himself back into the Cyborg Superman, even when he had the chance to have a normal life. Given what he's done, Captain Ahab was rather disturbed by the comparison.
  • Recognized a similarity between his crew and the Fantastic Four, though their fate were far more pleasant. Naturally, thinks went south in the Fantastic Four-Superman crossover.

    Mephisto (Diablo
Mephisto, Demonic God of Equal Hatred (Dul'Mephistos, Lord of Hatred, Odium, Mefis, Spirit of Love, The First Brother)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mephisto_8.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His insignia
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Evil Genius, Evil Laugh, Lean and Mean, Manipulative Bastard, The Power of Hate, Weak, but Skilled
  • Domains: Hatred, Demons, War, Cunning, Planning, Trickery
  • Allies (Or people he doesn't quite hate as much):
  • Rivals: Azmodan, Belial
  • Enemies:
  • Odd Friendship: Alarak, Murky
  • Dul'Mephistos, also known as Mephisto, is one of the three Prime Evils of the world of Sanctuary, the Lord of Hatred and the elder brother of both Diablo and Baal. He is the most cunning of the three and an expert manipulator who has given the demons of the Burning Hells an edge in the Eternal Conflict. He is fueled by Hatred and has contempt for every single living creature, but he prioritizes angel and humans over other demons since he is smart enough to work with others for a common goal. His arrival to the pantheon was heralded by his two brothers reuniting and personally receiving him. With all the Prime Evils in the pantheon, nothing will stop them from taking over the place for their own.
  • Was delighted to find out his asigned temple was the House of Hatred itself. He could easily be one of the leading deities of the house considering how common the feeling of contempt is present but he decided to stay out of the spotlight to avoid attention. His hatred is equal for all living beings, even his closest friends and allies, but he is smart enough to not let that hatred prevent him from making alliances.
  • Amused by the presence of the Lesser Evils, Azmodan and Belial in particular. Mephisto is keeping an eye on them since he hasn't forgotten about the time they banished him and his brothers to Sanctuary and they often butt heads with them. There is also the fact that Mephisto was the one that taught Belial everything he knows, of course you know how well Belial reciprocated to his master.
  • Not impressed by the strong presence of angelic deities. Of course, he hates them all, especially the Angels from Sanctuary who Mephisto has been at war since the dawn of time and considering that the angelic forces are much more numerous this time, he has been trying to device new ways to get rid of them.
    • Of course, there is an exception for Mephisto and that would be the Archangel of Hope Auriel. He believes that hope is the only virtue without purpose, otherwise suffering and, by extension, hatred would not exist. Auriel feels nothing but disgust when it comes to Mephisto but the Lord of Hatred himself seeks to corrupt her and drive the archangel to his side.
  • He is aware that his name is quite common for demons, as shown when he met the other Mephisto. While the Lord of Hatred is not flattered by the constant confusion, he nevertheless was interested in allying himself with the Prince of Lies since his powers and cunning rivals his own and he could be a great asset for the total corruption of the Pantheon and the fight against the Angels.
    • Speaking of Mephistopheles, Faust utterly despises Mephisto even if he is not the same aforementioned demon, since he screwed faust over their deal and made his life miserable. Mephisto was only bemused by it, he doesn't mind someone hating him, as long as that happens he will only get stronger.
  • Of course, his ascension did bring the attention of the Nephalem, the misbegotten spawn of his daughter Lilith with the angel Inarius and they did take action against Mephisto and his brothers once more to prevent them from corrupting the pantheon. However, he holds the most contempt to Deckard Cain, a member of the group that imprisoned him, and the mortal adventurers that slayed him, particularly the Necromancer Xul.
  • As if it wasn't obvious, those who are powered by Hatred delights him (Of course, he still hates them anyway). He has paid special attention to Guts and Velvet Crowe, two deities whose hatred define and empower them and their mere presence makes the Lord of Hatred that much more powerful. Both are not stranger to dealing with creatures like Mephisto but since his domain is tied to their powers, they try to minimize the amount of Hatred they feel, even if that little hate still empowers the demon lord.
  • Mephisto made a surprise entrance into the Nexus, deciding to aid his brother Diablo in the conquering of the many realms inhabiting and to spread his hatred. However, he found himself making two unlikely allies. The Highlord of the Tal'darim Protoss Alarak has heard of the demon before and has shown a rather surprising amount of respect for Mephisto while the latter is aroused by the sheer amount of hatred the Tal'darim harness. The other more unorthodox ally was Murky, whose sheer hatred and desire for revenge earned the attention of Mephisto almost instantly.
  • His physical appearance tends to differ from time to time but the body he possesses is not his own. He possessed the body of Zankekur, a Zakarum priest and twisted it beyond recognition to the point that it barely resembles a human skeleton. Sometimes he adds a little meat to his body, nobody is sure why he does that.
  • All those who serve and protect life are some of the deities that he loathes the most and seeks to cull them all. In return, the sheer aura of corruption that Mephisto represent has made him one of the prime enemies for the protectors of life but they do know that hatred only makes him stronger so they only focus on dealing him when absolutely necessary
  • "YOU ARE TOO LATE!"

    Adrian Fahrenheight Ţepeş/Alucard 
Adrian Fahrenheight Ţepeş, God of Those Who Go Against Their Vampire Fathers (Alucard, Genya Arikado, The Sleeping Soldier, Floating Vampire Jesus)

  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Dracula's symbol reversed (AKA: Empty wine glass facing downwards. The wine obviously fell off)
  • Theme Song: "Dracula's Castle" Alternatively, "Tragic Prince" or "I am the Wind" (Don't sing this in front of him nowadays, even though he's quite fond of it)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Breed of Human And Vampire, Good-hearted Vampires Hatred towards Vampiric Father, Backward Names, Non-Evil Dark powers, Rebellious Princes
  • Domains: Darkness, Vampires, Good
  • Followers: A couple of the 27 Dead Apostle Ancestors (Zelretch, Enhance, Merem Solomon, Alcatraz).
  • Allies: Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades and Grant DaNasty, Simon Belmont, Shanoa, the Dovahkiin, Evangeline A.K. Macdowell, Rachel Alucard, Arcueid Brunestud, Eric Brooks/Blade, Kanaya Maryam, Gaius, Giorno Giovanna, Doctor Strange, Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider
  • Enemies: Dracula, Yuuki Terumi, Alexander Anderson
  • After years of following Dracula, he finally grew sick of his father's evil and cruel methods and finally broke out on his own. Currently on a crusade to free the other vampires following Dracula.
  • In his crusade, he was joined by Rachel Alucard, on basis that she's bored and for the lulz, she playfully proclaim herself Alucard's sister. Alucard never minded.... until Rachel noted the emergence of Terumi and Alucard found out that his House's name was struck out and be replaced with "House of Shitty Vampires" by Terumi. That being said, Alucard has taken extra caution on that man.
    • This relationship and teamwork continued, even after Rachel was elevated. In exchange of him agreeing to keep an eye on Terumi, Rachel also agrees to keep an eye on Dracula.
  • He and the Dovahkiin are on good terms, and sometimes work together, as the Dovahkiin's close friend Serana is a nice girl who was turned into a Vampire Lord by her abusive father for his own ends.
  • There has been recent rumors that the same title of Alucard was held by a certain Trevor Belmont. This has confused Adrian, because as he knew of, Trevor is always a good friend of his, not himself. For that end, he arranged a recommendation to bring two of his original friends, Trevor Belmont and his wife Sypha Belnades, to the Pantheon in order to clear this confusion. They succeeded as well recovering their missing final member, Grant after he was enslaved by Davy Jones.
    • That said, when he heard that the Alucard of the alternate universe succeeded in doing what the main one had always dreamed of; redeeming his father, Trevor said he smiled the most genuine smile he's ever seen Alucard wear.
  • Unknown to many of his more recent followers, Alucard wasn't always this good looking. This is how he used to look and for the safety of his followers (in case they end up feeling betrayed because of his looks), Alucard usually hides this image and only shows it to his followers that he deems not judging Gods by their looks only.
  • He always held the philosophy of "Evil triumphs when good men do nothing", thus he's just as workaholic, just like the Belmonts, in fighting evil. However, Alucard is aware that there are some who would use his slogan in a Knight Templar way, condemning some Anti-Villain in process. He's not too pleased when he hears people doing so and dragging his slogan for it.
  • During the whole Morality Civil War, Alucard's relations with Rachel was strained due to her suddenly using the aforementioned slogan to put down Litchi Faye-Ling for not doing as she suggested. Fortunately Alucard managed to get a wind that something was amiss and possessed Rachel and worked his way to free her from that something's influence, and reminding her that this wouldn't be the way to honor the efforts of her friend Ragna the Bloodedge. After helping her come to her senses, they once again rekindle their 'sibling' relations.
  • Is not in good terms with Remilia Scarlet, due of his father having captured her for a long time. Even after Alucard apologized his father's actions and promised that he is different from him, Remilia's pride was too shattered to let it pass.
  • While he is still very wary around the Lord of Shadows' Dracula, Gabriel Belmont, he's more then willing to give the newly redeemed vampire a chance.
  • Has noticed similar vocal ranges between him and historical figure Sima Shi, especially with portraits of them done by the one and only Ayami Kojima of all people.
  • Has a very awkward relationship with Soma Cruz and his friend Mina Hakuba, considering that Alucard is now technically older than his own (reincarnated) father and mother. Alucard tends to be overprotective of Soma since he doesn't want him to go back to his old ways, but other than this their relationship is at least functional.
  • Can also be found in Vampires.

    Father (KND
Father, God of Child Haters (Benedict Uno)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/father_chair.jpg

  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His own Silhouette on fire.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Degraded Villains, Child Haters, Evil Is Burning Hot, Unfavorites, Moral Myopia, Pipes, Evil Is Hammy, Clothes That Gain Fire Powers, Broken Haughties, Card Carrying Villains, Cowardly Lions, Villainous Woobies, Evil Uncles, Freudian Excuses, Family Revelations
  • Domains: Family, Evil.
  • Allies: Every Evil Deity in the House of Family, especially Relius Clover
  • Enemies: Every Good Deity in the House of Family, the Kids Next Door Sector V, Anakin Skywalker, Bryan Mills, Superman, Batman
  • Opposes: Every child in the Pantheon, especially The Dimensional Counterparts, Bart Simpson, Dennis the Menace
  • Uneasy Relationships: Professor Hojo, Yoshino, Bondrewd, Bowser
  • Annoyed by: Lord Dominator
  • Special Relationship: The Delightful Children From Down The Lane
  • Here is the story of a father who started off as a terrifying villain and yet takes a fall from grace. His first few encounters with the Kids Next Door showed the GUAE how threatening he can be. Already a deadly pyrokinetic, he also proved to be a cunning adversary. All of this was destroyed with the arrival of his own father, who promptly took over his own organization upon his arrival. Even when Grandfather was ultimately defeated, he played no part in his redemption. That prompted the GUAE to oust the man from the Pantheon. After some years, it was decided their initial ruling was harsh, with his accomplishments showing he was still a threat even to the end. Thus, his original title was reinstated. Now, he gets to exact revenge on all children in the Pantheon.
  • This re-ascension came over the objections of Numbah One and his teammates. They did not want to have to deal with a deified version of himself once again. With their opposition rejected, the crew have no choice but to declare battle-stations to take on their old foe.
  • He returns with a bit of help this time. His kids the Delightful Children from Down The Lane had ascended in his absence and were keeping the Kids Next Door busy on his behalf. He briefly thanked them for keeping the seat warm before taking over once more. It is difficult to tell whether he likes his own children (though they may well be the only ones he would ever like).
  • His temple is completely off limits to any snot-nosed brat within 200 feet of the premises. He promised to burn alive any child who violates his policy, even those who pose no threat to him.
  • Bart and Dennis saw his ascension as their personal mission to annoy the living hell out of Father. It's one target the majority in the Pantheon wouldn't mind the two go after. Two two can be seen launching water balloons and eggs at his temple lawn. Father is planning to hit back at them tenfold.
  • The Dimensional Counterparts also have a personal beef, with Father reminding them of Professor Leo Akaba except the professor was a Well-Intentioned Extremist. Father merely hates children and seeks to correct them into beings that he can tolerate. Yet that would be a fight that may not end in his favor; he is unfamiliar with the game of Duel Monsters and would unlikely be able to defeat their strongest cards on his own.
  • Procured an uneasy alliance among the evil-teenagers on the Pantheon. They have helped him back on his world and was ready to ask for their assistance once more. Still, not all of them agreed to do so, and there were a few who proved to be just as annoying as children.
  • Thought that Yoshino would be easy picks to beat. While she was initially afraid of his flames, a few stray hits with her cold powers was enough to knock him out. He has since stated that she got lucky, but the LOL Rangers pointed out that he has yet to demand a rematch, calling him a coward.
  • Relius Clover remains as one of his closest allies, even during his exile. The Antagonistic Father took over the spot for evil dads until Father made his return. With his return, the two can now pool their clergy to wreak havoc upon kids.
  • Has received a strong reaction among other fathers in the Pantheon. Virtually all good-aligned fathers outright booed his reintroduction into the Pantheon. There were especially strong objections from Bryan Mills and Anakin Skywalker. Bryan was disgusted with Father's contempt towards children, which went against his philosophy of saving loved ones. Anakin felt the need to take care of his children even as Darth Vader. He could not accept someone who hated children as so and wondered how Father treated his own kids.
    • As a matter of fact, Father retorted that he actually likes them. He sees the Delightful Children as the prime example of what every kid should be like. And if they refuse... he won't be opposed to turning them to adults, animals or something even worse that that.
    • There are many superheroes who have a rather soft spot when it comes to taking care of children. This is especially true for Batman and Superman, both of which have children of their own. The World's Finest are not fans of him at all.
    • Any alliance with the villain Bowser is one with one eye open at all times. Bowser has a son of his own who he takes care of. And while Bowser Jr. can be annoying at times, the elder would never go so far as to brainwash him like what Father did to his children.
    • Yet even he won't go so far as to experiment on his own children. While Professor's fascination for genetic engineering seemed promising, Father suspects that the scientist merely wants to put him in a lid for testing.
    • Bondrewd is another scientist that is simply too batshit insane for Father to consider an ally. That scientist wouldn't also mind taking a look at the Delightful Children.
  • Not everyone thinks he should return. Lord Dominator has been masterful at tearing down villains emotionally and she quickly went to work on Father, stating how pathetic it was that he never got to stand up to his own father. While it was clear that those words stung him, Father has managed to steel himself from her attacks.

    Jasper Batt Jr. 
Jasper Batt Jr., God of Purposely Hated Characters (Bastard Twat Jr.)

  • Opposed By: Margaret Moonlight, Philip Price, Houses of Family and Vengeance, The Killers & Assassins Sub-House (regarding the more moral members)
  • Commonality Connection: Zamasu, Yuuki Terumi (not that Zamasu would like to admit it)
  • So, an up-and-coming assassin who fights his way to the number 1 spot of the United Assassins Association kills the CEO of Pizza Butt and his two sons so that he could earn extra cash to buy a bunch of shirts, some wrestling and anime DVDs and enlist in the next ranking battle. Three years later, there happens to be a third son, who manages to take the company, rename it to Pizza Bat and dominate the commercial industry in Santa Destroy and eventually become the top assassin of the UAA. Above all, he desires revenge on Travis Touchdown for killing his family, so he decides to hire some goons to kill Travis's best friend, Bishop "Sidaks", while Travis was busy fighting against another assassin and reenters the UAA in 51st place.
  • Jasper Batt Jr. is not like your typical Corrupt Corporate Executive, and that's not even in a critically complimentary style. He's a scrawny Psychopathic Manchild whose appearance and demeanour simply comes off as laughable and obnoxious. Sure, Travis was evidently furious when they met, but that look and personality hides something even more sinister... and frustrating. It's there where Jasper really demonstrates why he's the UAA's top-ranked assassin, and people hate him for that.
    • Still, Travis managed to kill Jasper and exact his revenge... except there was nothing to really gain out from it (maybe not even freeing Santa Destroy from his control). At the end of the day, revenge just seems pointless. And with the route he took, Travis instead took to fixating himself on targeting the UAA for their corrupt business practices which involved ruining people's lives and vows to one day dismantle the Association...
  • When Jasper ascended into the Pantheon, he threw a hissy-fit for not being able to defeat Travis, despite having most of the advantage to his side during his fights. He was even more pissed to see that Pizza Bat also went down with him and that without his company, he pretty much has nowhere to go.
    • While Jasper is normally associated under the Unpopularity Sub-House, even there, he's barely welcome with only fellow Hate Sinks being able to tolerate him. Instead, he just heads off to the House of Commerce where he's struck a deal with Mr Burns in an effort to revive Pizza Bat to its former glory. It's a slow start, but Jasper is making sure he'll get there.
  • Jasper is... not liked at all by many. It's not enough that the guy is a smarmy asshole who boasts about how he was able to take over the commercial district of Santa Destroy, but he's also very vainglorious and prideful about his position. His voice isn't helping matters either and some people just want to make him shut up.
    • He's easily one of the most hated beings in the Pantheon, what with many people proclaiming that he less a challenge and more someone who cheats his way to the top with a series of moves that are almost guaranteed to hit. Some even took to comparing his unpopularity to Zamasu, who himself had nothing to offer to Jasper beyond just being "another mortal insect" to his eyes. Others went as far to agree with this.
    • Yuuki Terumi finds his battle against Travis to be an example of epic trolling, given how people got turned off by Jasper's incredibly cheap moveset and for his obnoxious attitude, though Terumi States Jasper isn't better than him when it comes to pissing people off. Jasper, in turn, sees Terumi as competition, though they don't get onto each other's necks all too often, given that they have way more people gunning for them. Finally, there's Dolores Umbridge, who previously held Jasper's position. Despite their severe unpopularity, Jasper and Umbridge don't seem to bond with one another due to differing priorities, plus Jasper thinks Umbridge is just too sickeningly sweet and bright for his liking, despite Jasper's own getup being rather boisterous and over-the-top (he probably doesn't like her color scheme).
  • When Travis woke up to discover that Jasper made his way into the Pantheon, his response was to... give a wide sigh and simply walk off. As mentioned above, he already killed him, it wasn't satisfying and he wasn't worth the effort and time. If anything, Travis just recited what Henry said before the latter's departure upon seeing Jasper's final form.
    Travis: I mean I've got standards, for fuck's sake!
    • Jasper's response to Travis hearing about the former's ascension drove him mad for a moment and then went to confront Travis himself. Travis simply wasted no time and slashed the hell out of him, though he left Jasper alive for extra humiliation and told him to "get lost, fuckhead!". However, rumour has it that Travis escaped as far as he could, just so he doesn't have to fight Jasper's second form again.
  • Because of how he was so driven by the assassination of his father and brothers, Jasper approached the House of Family for solace and goodwill. Instead, the Heroic Protectors of Family bluntly refuted any attempts to make a relationship with Jasper, straightforwardly telling him that Travis killing his family doesn't justify him ordering a hit on Bishop just for revenge. Some of them even said he wouldn't have even known if he actually killed them at the time, because they seemed hard to tell apart from the employees. The Child Abuse Supporters don't really have much to add on regarding Jasper, though given that Jasper might have loved his father and brothers, striking a relationship may be intrinsically difficult.
  • Jasper's domain is set in a massively high skyscraper with a bustling shopping mall covering the first three floors, a series of apartments and offices all around the building and Jasper's personal office being on the top floor. Before someone asks, yes, there's a window behind Jasper's desk. Said window is something not a lot of people don't like to talk about, especially considering how Jasper likes to weaponize that as a death sentence to those who dare fight against his second boss.
  • Before someone asks, yes, his company does indeed sell and deliver pizzas. Unfortunately, the Ninja Turtles aren't so happy with that as they think Jasper gives pizzas a bad name. Not to mention getting pizza delivered by a company that's owned by a certain hated figure doesn't exactly help matters.
    • There are a few Pizza Bat food restaurant chains in the House of Food. Fortunately, not everyone who works in these chains are bad people by heart and may even get along with good-hearted visitors, but the fact that they're Pizza Bat restaurants is a sight of contention by many. It's mildly popular for villains who like pizza. Many heroes don't visit them, mainly because they don't want their money spent on Jasper, though they sort of feel bad about those who work in the restaurants as they're probably in need of work and money themselves.
  • His high business position and having firm control over Santa Destroy meant that he could completely get away from want crime with his own name and fortune. This earned him the ire of Seito Kaiba, who personally believes that no one can do that but him. Plus upon looking at Jasper, Seito decided not to waste his time associating with him and promptly declare him an obstacle to clear out of. Jasper, on the other hand, decided to want to take over Kaiba Corp someday so that Pizza Bat may play an influence in Duel Monster gaming.
  • Regarding revenge, Jasper took notice of Corvo Attano and Jack Marston, mainly because the two of them were very revenge-driven and seemed to try meeting up with them. Unsurprisingly, both Attano and Jack saw Jasper as a pathetic manchild and warned them to stay away from their sights. Jasper proceeded to activate his second form and mercilessly pound them down for daring to speak against him. The fact that Attano and Jack now hate him, even more, doesn't faze Jasper all that much, though the two of them are making plans of sabotage.
    • While revenge because your family members were murdered is common and sympathetic, Jasper's unlikable personality and attitude doesn't wholly justify everything he's done. The House of Vengeance took notice of that and many of the good-natured deities there openly dislike Jasper and don't want anything to do with him, despite his consistent attempts in trying to find an alliance with someone.
  • Despite once being the top-ranked assassin in the UAA, the Killers & Assassins Sub-House don't have a positive opinion on Jasper either because he has no honour and his motives are simply self-serving and pathetic, a sentiment that is shared by Night Raid, who simply avoid Jasper for simply being worthless to meet up with. He's pretty much as hated as the Brave Companions (which, in itself, says a lot), though Jasper thinks having them, especially Rorge would damage ratings and reputations regarding the UAA and Pizza Bat.
    • Regarding UAA assassins themselves, only Destroyman seems to be enthusiastic about joining forces with Jasper out of a desire to seek revenge against Travis. Margaret would much rather write a song about how pathetic and hated Jasper is rather than fighting against him and Kimmy Howell really has no opinion about Jasper and would much rather be left to her own devices regarding fighting against Travis.
    • While it is true that Jasper beat the shit out of Attano, the latter simply states that he was caught off-guard and that if he was more aware, Jasper would soil his pants the next time they met. Jasper himself has slowly become more aware of what Attano is truly capable of and seeks to prepare himself for the moment.
  • Elliot Alderson unsurprisingly hates Jasper for how his company has seeped Santa Destroy's economy and warped it into being dependent on Pizza Bat, which Elliot and Mr Robot see as leeching off of people's banks and work as well the idea of televised assassination challenges being disturbing and disgusting in its own right. Philip Price also sees Jasper as a petty idiot who's more concerned with revenge and flaunting over his position than actually trying to run a company, though Jasper retorts by stating that if given enough time, Pizza Bat would be a lot bigger than E Corp ever was.
  • Jasper has some physical not-so-subtle references to Batman and the Joker, namely his bright aesthetics, his company's name and having an over-the-top superhero attire for his second form.
    • If it couldn't be any more obvious, Bruce Wayne wants nothing to do with him and would rather spend more of his time worrying about his own set of enemies than someone who is too fixated on wanting revenge against someone for an utterly pathetic reason. That said, Jasper views Batman with some level of concern, given that he's probably thought of a plan to take on his second and third forms.
    • The Joker, however, doesn't have a high opinion about Jasper, despite the extremely theatrical tone and look of the latter. They'll work together, but the Joker will always remind Jasper that he should show a bit more excited and playful about his actions. Jasper says he does, but he's missing what the Joker really wants him to do; relish in wanton destruction and carnage. In regards to the more psychological stuff, Joker thought showing off to Travis the decapitated heads of his remaining loved ones was a good trick, but it would have hit him even harder if they weren't just wax replicas. Jasper explains he simply didn't have enough time to get the real heads. They're professional assassins too, after all.
  • About the only "true" alliances he could make were Mr Burns, Eliza and Neil Reagan, Porky Minch and Nui Harime. The former is a case of business relations, given that Mr Burns has helped Jasper in getting back his financial reputation and he seems to be of good company towards Eliza and Neil for being scummy brats who want to make someone's life miserable. Him, Porky and Nui are widely hated in the Pantheon, which makes them an odd trio of sorts. While their relationship is rocky at best, Jasper is keen on enlisting Nui into the UAA assassination rankings to see just how far is Nui willing to go in her killing spree. He also wants to see if he and Porky can establish a working partnership via spreading Pizza Bat store chains in New Pork City as a sign of goodwill.
Now you're feeling it. That's your life losing all meaning. You've got nothing left except this fight. Now I know you'll put all you have into this!

  • Ju-On. A curse that strikes fear (and death) in the hearts of many. The product of an individual dying a violent death, it is a dark supernatural force that brutally ends every living being it comes in contact with. And there is no more infamous example of this curse's terror than Kayako Saeki. Once an ordinary (albeit shy) Japanese housewife, she was killed by her husband Takeo along with her son Toshio and the family cat Mar after he discovered her love for another mannote  recorded in her journal. Spraining her ankle, getting her neck snapped, and stabbed multiple times in quick succession, she revived as an onryō hell-bent on killing everyone who steps foot in the Saeki household, with Kobayashi and her husband among her first victims. Last seen having merged with Sadako Yamamura to form Sadakaya, her curse has now reached the Pantheonnote .
  • The Ghostbusters happened to be visiting the House of Ghosts to stop another disturbance by King Boo. Walking back to their temple after a successful operation, they stumbled on the old house and wandered inside. Since curiosity kills the cat, they were cornered by Kayako and splattered in the attic. When their remains were found by patrolling 501st stormtroopersnote , they were immediately carted to the House of Life and Death for revival. It took several weeks for them to come back to themselves and retell what happened (which was not pretty). Since then, Kayako's new temple has been relocated to an area farther away from the rest of her neighbours and heavily quarantined to prevent her curse from permeating the rest of the Pantheon.
    • This hasn't hindered Kayako in the slightest, since the Ghostbusters had gotten her curse (as well as the 501st stormtroopers) and it spreads like The Plague. Merely stepping into the Saeki house curses you, and there is no way to break free of it. Granted, the fact that Death Is Cheap in the Pantheon has heavily mitigated the death toll, but Kayako won't cease pursuing whoever has disturbed her abode and this in turn only increases her fear factor. The only way to be directly killed by Kayako now is to step into her temple and remain there long enough for her to attack, as the Ghostbusters discovered to their peril. Only Ray has any semblance of wanting to get back at her.
    • Don't try running away from her either. While an ordinary villain would pull a You Can Run, but You Can't Hide on the pursued, Kayako can just appear in front of you, behind you, even below you. Nowhere is safe. Not even under the covers or even the clothes on your back!
    • Kayako has similarly been targeted by various Occult Detectives and Monster Hunters, although none of them have had any real success. The Winchesters mistakenly believed her to be a Shojo, a Japanese alcohol spirit which can be killed by being stabbed with a samurai sword consecrated by a Shinto blessing. It didn't work. Others like John Constantine, Harry Dresden and Skulduggery Pleasant have tried various Magical Incantations, Full-Contact Magic and Elemental Powers, which also didn't really do much to her. Finally, there are those such as Hellboy and Danny Phantom who tried to attack her more directly, which also failed.
  • Note that this Kayako is an amalgamation of several versions of herself (the one from the original novel, the one from the first four films, the one from the American adaptation, and the one from the reboot films). The Court has decreed that while this Kayako has memories from all four incarnations of her, she most heavily draws from the Japanese film versions of her. Not that it makes much of a difference anyway, since they all died the same way and share near identical characteristics.
  • Kayako is a very different animal from Sadako Yamamura, the Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl from her sister franchise, the The Ring. Sadako at the very least is seen to have a visible awareness of her abilities, having used her psychic powers to manufacture her signature videotape curse and later adapting to spreading it via the Internet, Kayako's Ju-On curse is almost entirely a byproduct of her violent death and she is entirely fueled by her rage and anger. Because of this, Atrocitus is wondering if he can force her to wear a Red Lantern ring to serve as a weapon for him to kill Krona with, after determining it as useless to control Alma Wade with a ring. All attempts have proven unsuccessful since you don't control Kayako. She controls you.
  • Before entering the Pantheon proper, Kayako was one of the many J-Horror ghosts roaming the halls of the Dominion of Heavenly Host Elementary School, killing trapped people there in much the same way as she would have done normally, her infamy rivalling that of the school's main spirit, Sachiko. When Kayako was beamed out of there following her ascension, Sachiko tagged along to became her High Priestess so she could have more fun outside her nightmarish realm. This was tepidly supported by the Main House who saw giving her someone to interact with as a better option compared to her rampaging alone across the Pantheon. To her credit, while mostly ignorant of Sachiko, when she does, Kayako does love her like her own daughter. Sachiko is still disgruntled that the dynamic paints her as the Number Two to Kayako to deities that don't know of Corpse Party, where in Heavenly Host she reigned supreme, yet remains supportive of her so-called mother in killing and torturing, encouraging her in this attitude.
    • Eveline has a similar dynamic with her, as her chief desire is to have a family of her own. While usually with the the Bakers, she acts as a surrogate daughter to Kayako and acts as a secret weapon of sorts in the family to combat Sadako, since her powers are far more diverse than simple killing and teleporting, reaching even the ability to control matter. Hence, Erma Williams should be an enemy, yet an odd kinship with Toshio (and going on a picnic with the family) completely flips the script here.
  • Speaking of Toshio, her son is probably the only individual she expresses any sort of affection (or even positive emotion) for. A common tactic of his is to appear as an ordinary child (he is normally a naked pale ghost) to lure sympathetic prey closer for his mother to attack. He mocks them with his signature meow signifying how his soul has merged with that of Mar, the family cat. Besides that, he mostly hangs around his mother, silent and hopeful for new victims to come. New evidence has come to light that Toshio may not be Kayako's child at all. In truth, he is the reincarnation of a child named Toshio Yamaga, left in a closet to die during a heat wave. His resultant Ju-On spirit entered Kayako's womb and fulfilled her wish to have a child. In essence, this means that Takeo's suspicion of Kayako's child not being his was correct and Toshio indirectly caused Kayako's own demise and Ju-On curse.
    • Kayako seems to have a twisted sense of affection towards other children in the Pantheon, and saves them for last in any one of her killing sprees. Some children have tried to help her out (if they're powerful enough). Timmy Turner once wished her back to life, but the power of the curse proved too strong and she snapped back within four seconds. Da Rules probably should update its pages.
  • The only person she was never able to scare or outright kill is Son Chi-Chi, who looked her straight in the face and did....something. Eyewitness reports state that Kayako quailed in terror and disappeared in a pool of blood.
    • She is scared shitless of the Ghost Rider as his Penance Stare could permanently incapacitate her. Yes, it works on ghosts.
  • Zamasu was very intrigued by her arrival. While he groused about how she was an example of the foolishness of mortals as usual, since her love for another man led to her death by an equally foolish and crazy husband. After Terumi suggested he actually do something again for once, he checked out the house to witness one of her murder sprees and had a brief skirmish with her. You can guess who won. Now he has the slightest tinge of respect for her unbridled desire to decimate anyone who comes near her or her family, a slave to her own hatred. The fact that she has a second place in his own House has only increased his interest in manipulating her to commit petty murders for him to ensure plausible deniability.
    • Mephisto finds her to be the perfect source of Hatred, the Ju-On potentially making him all the more powerful given his domain being hatred and a tool he could use for his schemes. Doubt she would like him back.
  • As mentioned above, Kayako can forcibly merge with Sadako Yamamura to form an entity containing both curses: Sadakaya. The resultant spirit has Sadako's attire and mannerisms but emits Kayako's death rattle. The videotape also is played in the doorway of the Saeki household instead of the traditional well. This form has double the power of its constituent ghosts combined and is nigh invulnerable to Intermediate deities and below. Now that they are separated again, it would be unwise to wish for them to fuse again.
    • This hasn't stopped people from trying. Dr. Gero in one of his 'phases' captured Sadako by purposely cursing himself with the videotape and entering Kayako's temple. Once this was accomplished, he used a shock collar to trap Sadakaya and increase the fusion rate via stolen Potara Earrings. The result was 'Super Sadakaya'. The ghost unleashed a psychic wave that utterly decimated the House of Ghosts and necessitated a full rebuild of the place to prevent a chain reaction of ghost invasions into the Pantheon. Miraculously, Dr. Gero escaped justice for this heinous act. In fact, he has plans on trying again, only with more ghosts.
  • If Sadako had never existed, Alma Wade would take the top spot as Kayako's chief rival and enemy. As they are scarily similar in traits and personality, they get into altercations often with Alma winning almost all the time. At least twenty victims can be caught in the crossfire, and the anger exuded was so great that even Red Lantern Corps member were terrified and longer certain that they can control Kayako in any way, shape or form.
    • This bitter rivalry has gained the attention of Dark Danny, who sees her as a useful substitute for Alma Wade as a potential ghost-in-chief for him. Danny is determined to prevent that from happening.
  • Every When They Cry deity hates her with a passion as her Ju-On curse is nothing more than a worse version of the Himamizawa Syndrome that can't be sealed because is it contained within a sentient being. They never venture near the Saeki household if they can help. Shion in particular sealed herself in her temple for 24 hours after learning of her ascension.
  • In her own twisted way, she sympathises with Scorpion in regards to him losing his family, and Scorpion doesn't mess with her due to the nature of her death.
  • If there is any hope for Kayako, there is speculation that she returns to her normal self on her birthday, like Sachiko. Since her birth date has never been divulged, there is no way of determining if that is the case.
  • Also has a spot in the House of Ghosts.

  • Conflicting Opinion: Master Xehanort
  • Long ago, there was once a villager who was just going about in his day. Then his fellow villagers decided to ostracize someone in order to rationalize all of the disasters they had gone through, and that someone is him. Since then, he had every atrocity committed inflicted onto him and gets blamed for them until his old age and after that, they placed a curse that made him represent the world's evil on him to seal the deal. Throughout all of this, he was confused at why would they do this to him, but eventually he began to hate them back and later, his forced sacrifice qualified him to become a Heroic Spirit. Throughout the years, he has seen generations come and go and hatred becomes second nature to him, then eventually becomes his entire being once he lost all of his humanity.
    • He was later summoned into the Third Fuyuki Holy Grail War, where he was swiftly killed due to his weak powers and gets stuck in the Holy Grail. The Grail then grants every evil wish humanity has placed on Avenger, turning him into an actual daemon designated as All the World's Evil, Angra Mainyu. Within the Greater Grail, he tainted the grail system, allowing irregular spirits to manifest in Holy Grail Wars. During the Fourth and Fifth Holy Grail Wars, he taunted Kiritsugu Emiya and his ideals by claiming his methods will make him an enemy of humanity by impersonating Irisviel and granted Kirei Kotomine's wish for destruction with his black mud swallowing Kotomine and gave him a blackened heart; in separate timelines of the Fifth War, he lies to Illyasviel von Einzbern that her father killed her mother and contracted with Sakura Matou to manifest in the material world but in the end, the physical Grail corrupted by him get destroyed in all of the three timelines.
    • But one of the timelines ensured his survival by having enough souls of Servants to fuel his resurrection, and later he wandered to find one last desire to fulfill due to being a weak Grail. He then found Bazzett Fraga McRemitz, the Master of Lancer who was left to die by Kotomine who also wished for life, so he made a contract with her and put her in a comatose state, until Caren Hortensia found Bazzett and nursed her in her mansion. To keep both her body and consciousness up and running, he made a four-day time loop and impersonates Shirou in mind and body but reverts to his true form as Bazzett's Servant; during the loop, he enjoyed becoming Shirou and began feeling wrong about the timeloop while Bazzett eventually realizes the situation but keeps the loop going to keep herself alive by sealing him in her left arm. With Caren's help, Avenger finally ended the loop once and for all with his time in Shirou's daily life represented his desire to live a normal life.
  • Melkor once realized that after all of the Forever War that's going on in the Pantheons, the blame needs to go to at least an entity worthy of taking all of them. Sure, there's Zamasu but he wants someone that best embody the very concept of scapegoating and its horrible consenquences; later while browsing through universes, he found the Avenger Servant, Angra Mainyu who Melkor finds fascinating due to also being banished by Eru Iluvatar for embodying evil. Seeing Angra's worth, he made his case to the Court of the Gods, who while feeling uneasy towards Melkor actually got convinced of his reasoning; the papers filed in and Angra Mainyu ascended to the Trope Pantheons. Angra also saw himself in Melkor, and so they hang out around the place off-hours though he can't but feel Melkor is very extreme against Eru and everything else good.
  • It's an Understatement when the participants of the Fuyuki Holy Grail Wars are not pleased to see him given that he basically screwed up their lives both indirectly and directly. Angra outright expresses that he has no regrets doing his wrongs to them, especially to Kiritsugu and his family, as well as Sakura and Gilgamesh. All parties are readying themselves to face him once more, which shows that all innocent people want is a good life.
    • Bazzett and Caren were the only two people that he legitimately cares about after the time loop fiasco he had a hand in creating. The Court decides to appoint them so that he's kept on a metaphorical leash, which Angra is actually grateful for. It was a sweet reunion, albeit a bizarre one to see an embodiment of evil and two women hanging around happily.
    • Kotomine arrives to Angra's temple once he heard news of his ascension in order to request more great power from him so that he can satisfy his lust for destruction. Since he helped him before and he's totally advocating for evil in man's heart, Angra agrees to give him aid once again. As for Bazzett and Caren, the latter has a lot of questions for her father while the former is hesitant to work alongside him since he killed her and stole Lancer from her before the Fifth Grail war started.
    • Angra is responsible for the corruption of Saber Alter and made her oppose Shirou to keep himself preserved until his full birth into the world. Saber Alter is bitter towards Avenger for that and is finding a loophole to get back at him; not that he cares much for her anyways...
  • Avenger is surprised that his Master, Ritsuka Fujimaru ascended at the same time as him. When Ritsuka bonded with Angra, by now his loops with Bazzett and Caren has already happened and he now takes a backseat in Chaldea's missions until needed. Angra's enemies along with Bazzett and Caren are counting on the Master of Chaldea to keep him in line.
    • Angra finds Amakusa Shirou very interesting, particularly his sheer determination to go after the Holy Grail for his wish of salvation for all and even their summonings by the Einzberns determined the outcomes of the future Fuyuki Holy Grail Wars. Amakusa could care less about Angra's opinion of him, because a corrupted Grail is still a Holy Grail and he'll not stop to get it... at least, had it not been for Ritsuka keeping him in line.
    • Jeanne Alter finds it disappointing that the very first Avenger-class Servant is pretty weak, so she's not gonna expect much of him sooner or later. Angra could care less about her, although he's fascinated that there's more Servants under his class which delights him that his influence towards the Greater Grail is working.
    • Angra considers himself a cheap imitation of the Beasts, because an Evil of Humanity is comparable to them. Funnily enough, he can actually go head-to-head with them especially against Goetia which prompted him, Tiamat and Kiara (when she's Heaven's Hole) to be careful around him.
  • Having just redeemed himself, he acquainted himself with Beatrice the Golden Witch and Vector who also used to screw around their victims maliciously before their calling out. They would be antagonizing had it not been for that they have been equally vile to others as well, so they gave in and ultimately exchange their past experiences with glee over coffee. Onlookers are still intimidated despite the happy situation.
  • Being a nearly unstoppable force of chaos and evil, Angra finds himself at odds with Lucifer and Don Thousand, who scoffs at his general weak Servant form and preferring him as the Black Grail. Unfortunately for Angra, most of the Pantheonic higher-ups are banning him from going near the Treasury's Grail so he can't impress them after all. The Nyarlathotep of the Shin Megami Tensei world is delighted to see more proof that Humans Are Bastards, but he calls dibs on ending humanity first; Angra finds it a shame that another embodiment of humanity's evil would want to compete with him than cooperate with him.
    • YHVH and Yaldabaoth are furious that another chaotic being has ascended and the latter refuses to let himself be corrupted by him while Philemon and Eru Iluvatar sees him as no better than Nyarlathotep nor Melkor. Angra couldn't care less about them, as long as they don't mess with his plans.
  • The ACTUAL Angra Mainyu scoffs at Avenger, laughing at the fact that his village sought out him and ruining his life to do so; the feeling is mutual since Avenger blames him and his name for his unjustified suffering. You won't be seeing these two in cahoots even if they have common ground. Despite sharing the Zoroastrian devil's name, Freddie Mercury and the Prince still antagonize him regardless since not only he's not better than Ahriman but also potentially more dangerous than he will be.
  • By this point, Avenger has done enough monstrous stuff to warrant him a lot of understandable hate which put him at odds with Yuki Terumi, Evolto, Zamasu and Dr. Weil. Terumi and Evolto had a party of their own when they found out what Angra embodies who proceeded to not be involved in their schemes while carrying out his own, as opposed to Zamasu who uses him as proof that humans deserve to be wiped out for, which actually offended Angra since at least he values humanity in spite of hating them so much. Terumi did call it a shame since like Angra, he too keeps himself alive with hatred and they would have debated about humanity evil all day long. Dr. Weil could care less about humanity's evils, he still wants Reploids to serve them regardless of their feelings; Angra even wonders if he ever needs redemption at all.
    • Since he can also corrupt others with his black mud, he also gained rivals in Phazon and BEN though BEN doesn't really use black stuff to corrupt his victims and surroundings. Phazon reacts negatively in Angra's presence which means it sees him as competition rather than ally.
  • Sure, he made a time loop to save Bazzett's life, but Phil Connors, Tree Gelbman and Stefan Butler are staying very far away from him because his Heroic Spirit form alone is Obviously Evil. Angra himself could care less for them, unless they are standing in his way.
    • He did feel bad about Homura Akemi using time loops to save Madoka forever, stating that he would have done the same for Bazzett. Homura wants nothing to do with him since he reminds her of what she has becomed: a monster warped by her love for her friend; Angra may not be warped by twisted love, but he still understands her situation nonetheless.
  • Avenger also embodies the very idea that heroes are a worthless idea and was interested in the Hero Killer, Stain regarding this. Except, Stain has a twisted idea of what a hero should be and while he finds Avenger interesting as well he does not want to completely dismiss heroism entirely. In spite of not seeing eye to eye, they remain civil even when debating the importance of heroism.
  • Because he got shunned by his fellow villagers and sacrificed later on, he truly sympathized with Gai Tsutsugami (who shunned himself willingly), Shinji Ikari, Haruka Kotoura, Sirius Black (who got convicted of a crime he didn't commit), Ramza Beoulve, Lazlo and Oyashiro. All of them feel ashamed, not because he's patronizing but because his actions outweigh his aforementioned sympathies which Angra surprisingly accepts as a fair criticism. Lelouch & Suzaku, while they too set themselves up to become public enemies number one refuses to find him any more than abhorrent.
    • Also found sympathy in both Ren and Naoya’s cases. He pities the Phantom Thief for being wrongfully charged as a criminal by society and Naoya for being setup by YHVH to become a figure none shall strive to become. Naoya is more kinder to him since Angra got unfairly sacrificed to banish evil while Ren stays very far away from him, finding him very hard to fully redeem since he's... you know, "All the World's Evil".
    • The one fellow scapegoat who actually allied with Angra is the Outsider, who The Abbey of the Everyman condemns for all the corruption and sin that plagues humanity while he just sees them as "that cult dedicated to hating me." While yes, he is behind what is considered witchcraft in his world and people do use it to commit terrible things, he never actually goads them into doing so. In fact, he gets disappointed when people opt to that route. There's also the fact that the Outsider was just some street rat sacrificed by a cult that the Abbey descended from. The higher ups are aware he isn't as evil as they say, but don't say anything and fear of losing their power when he dies since they don't have anyone to blame then. Since then, these two are seen together, intimidating nearby onlookers. What are they planning? Who knows...
  • Naturally, he'll hate anyone who would pin the blame onto someone else. One example would be Robert Edwin House because during the power struggle for New Vegas and by extension the Mojave scapegoating was one of his plans, House opted to let President Kimbell and General Lee Oliver live so that when he does pull the rug under the New California Republic they will be blamed for the loss. If they die, then they'll be seen as martyrs instead and be inspired to take action against him, which isn't ideal. Angra wishes the latter happened cause people like House who unjustly blame someone else should get their throat slit while House himself understandably gets scared shitless everytime he sees him.
  • As they too represent the evil in everybody's hearts, Vanitas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness got aquainted with Avenger. He's not really keen on joining their schemes, but still finds no harm in seeing how they go against heroes anyways. As for their boss Xehanort, he loves his villainy but finds his hidden motive of using the Kingdom Hearts to purge the worlds of their evils to be unfitting for him (not to mention offending Angra since he's an embodiment of evil).
  • Has affiliated himself with Noob Saibot, who also has dark-like abilities like Angra and they turned evil once they died under circumstances beyond their control. Bi-Han thinks by allying with Angra, he can use him as a way to gain control of a clan that would follow his command and finally plunge the universe into darkness while Angra himself should keep the doomsaying down. At least the wraith is considering him a possible alternative should Noob's alliance with Kronika fall short.

  • Domains: Heroism, War
  • Allies: A majority of the house of heroes, Funabori
  • Enemies: The Demonic Legion and the various evil demons throughout the pantheon, Raynare, stairs, and most of the denizens of hatred with a few demigods such as Eren Yeager and Barney being the only exceptions. YHVH and his angels.
  • Conflicting Opinion/Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Maou and few of the good demons in the pantheon.
  • Commonality Connection with: Eren Yeager
  • Pities: Issei Hyodo
  • After hearing of Maou's ascension to the pantheon she quickly found a way to ascended in order to keep an eye on him and make sure he doesn't try anything. As she will cut him down if necessary. Concerning their condition, he can no longer take her seriously. Though he does find her to be a Worthy Opponent. Unfortunately, her approach to dealing with Maou tends make other think that she is in a relationship/ex-girlfriend. As they tend to act Like an Old Married Couple.
  • Is... less than pleased that she was transferred to the House of Hatred, despite her extreme dislike of demons. She finds a majority of the inhabitants to be extremely dislikeable and even down right despicable. In short, she would rather not have anything to do with any of them, except for Eren, who she formed a kinship with, and Barney, as she doesn't understand why anyone would hate such a harmless and plushy dinosaur who enjoys giving hugs.
  • Even though there are many demons, she can't bring herself to hate all of them. She gets confused when she always was raised to believed that all demons are despicable creatures, but after seeing many demons such as Maou not being evil such as the Occult Research Club, specifically the kind Asia who once worked in a church. It tends to make her not as judgmental.
  • Her temple has both a training ground dedicated to perfecting her sword skills and a room filled with computers that accommodate her job as a call center agent. Distracting her from her job with prank calls in inadvisable. At best, she will give you a stern talking-to; at worst, watch out for the Better Half.
  • Many evil demons are trying to stop her from reaching her full power as they know she would become a force to be reckoned with as she was the one who drove Maou from Enta Isla and he was at full power.
  • She has found a job as member of a Call Center. Unfortunately for her she constantly being victim of prank calls courtesy of the Trollkaigers.
  • She has been invited to join Sacred Knights acknowledging her many victories over the demons of her world.
  • She isn't to happy about her chest size though she tries to play it off saying that armor is cheaper for her size unfortunately she isn't fooling anyone. She might join the League of Flatchests... maybe.
  • She has met the gods who might share the same voice as her unfortunately almost all of them have large chests (Rias, Mio, Stephanie Dola, Houki, Sakaki, Asuka the shinobi) and she excuse Ryobi of cheating which usually end with them fighting because of it. Then she gets to Kei Kugimiya and Funabori in which she breathe a sigh of relief. Though Kei and Funabori believe that they were just insulted because of her reaction.
  • She has befriended Eren Yeager thanks to their similar pasts when one of they parent was killed by a demon/titan, they also train in order to take down the demons/titans, and they both have a pretty mean Death Glare.
  • Surprisingly enough she has a child with Maou... Not that way, as she is horrified at the thought that someone would think that she had that type of relationship with her archenemy.
    • Said child, Alas Ramus, is part of Better Half and is with her at all times. Emi is very protective of her and will go to great lengths to keep her safe.
  • Although he's half-demon, she can't help but feel sorry for Issei Hyodo for being murdered by his ex-girlfriend and causing him psychological issues. In turn, she's disgusted by Raynare for being so unbelievable cruel and is uneasy on the fact that they share the same voice. She also wonders how horrible of an angel, even a fallen angel, she was if she can make a demon look like a better lover. She then thinks of Lucifer of her world as well as the angel Sariel and remembers that not everything is all Black and White.
    • Of course it gets rather awkward with her and Issei. Mostly because she sounds like his beloved buchou in Japanese and his evil ex Raynare. Also to make things even worse he sounds like the aforementioned angel in English, and even begun sounding like Maou himself. So they tend to avoid each other whenever possible.
  • Being half-angel, Emilia has been granted access to the House of Angels. There, she has made friends with some of the righteous angels, such as Michael, Manwë, Pit and Tyrael; all of whom agree with her mission to keep an eye on Satan. She also was pleasantly surprised to know the holy energy in that house replenishes her magic, so she has made visits to to spar with her fellow angels and keep her abilities in top form.
  • Completely tired of YHVH's angels trying to remove Better Half/Alas Ramus from her grasp.
  • Has been helping out Chiho train in holy magic with Crestia and... Sariel. So far, it's been a success.

  • Admired by: Dr. Nefarious, John Doe
  • Interested in: Majin Buu, the House of Technology
  • Headbutting Villains with: Ghetsis Harmonia
  • Lysandre either died after the failure of the Ultimate Weapon or was granted eternal life while trapped in the ruins of his base. Regardless, the pure unrestrained hatred and cynicism of his consciousness allowed Lysandre to appear in the Pantheon.
  • Lysandre has gone too far over the deep end, and cannot be reasoned with, as much as other gods in the Pantheon have tried. Only certain mortals may be his followers, as long as they dislike humanity as much as he does. There are no signs of him attempting to cause mass extinction again, but he has been spending an uncomfortable amount of time around the House of Technology.
    • He's also been giving Majin Buu some odd looks, muttering about his Human Extinction Attack.
  • YHVH and Metatron practically fell in love with the guy once he ascended. Likewise, Lysandre was drawn to their mentalities and has offered to assist them.
    • This includes helping them during the Great Upheaval.
  • Viridi and Ika Musume had no problems with Lysandre's point of view that people were tarnishing the world's beauty, and thought his plan to wipe out most of humanity was a good idea. But then they found out that this would also include the extinction of Pokémon (essentially animals), and neither of them would stand for it.
  • Despite being a fellow Pokémon villain, Lysandre finds Ghetsis utterly disgusting, citing him as not being the kind of person Lysandre would want in his perfect world.
    • On the flipside, Ghetsis thinks Lysandre is even crazier than him for trying to exterminate all Pokémon.
    • They have agreed on one thing though: they both loathe Ash Ketchum for interfering with their plans. This agreement is due to Ash just coming into conflict with Team Flare over the third most important legendary Pokémon of the Kalos region, Zygarde. However, later on, Lysandre was intrigued by the mysterious "Bond Phenomenon" between Ash and Greninja and sought to gain control of both using Mega Evolution energy. It didn't end well for Lysandre, in fact, it ended with Lysandre taking a fully powered Core Enforcer from Complete Zygarde.
  • Lysandre is under heavy watch when he enters the House of Technology since no one wants him to find the pantheon's ultimate weapon, the Yamato Perpetual Reactor and use it to destroy the entire pantheon.
    • For this reason, The White consider him an ally and are keeping a close eye on him, while Flynn considers him an enemy, while also keeping a close eye on him, mainly to prevent him from using the Reactor.
  • Considers Clu an inspiration, based on their similar goals, and (directly or not) forcing an innocent being (Emma and Tron, respectively) into helping him with his dirty work.
  • Tragically, Lysandre succeeded in destroying his world in one timeline where Calem and Serena never existed, or at least never rose up to become the champions as they did in their canon timelines. In response, Master Xehanort admitted that he's impressed and offered an alliance. Jadis sent her admiration to him, since she succeeded in destroying her world, too. Dr. Nefarious is now looking into using the Ultra Beasts to creating his world where robots are the sole life force, and where heroes always lose.
    • In contrast, Yuna now has to spend a long time sending the billions of murdered souls to the Farplane. She called Lysandre out the genocide, comparing him to Yu Yevon. Leia also called him scum for his action, citing what happened to Alderaan and the Hosnian system. And Aqua has pointed out that, like Lady Tremaine beforehand, it would be almost impossible for Lysandre to live down the actions of his alternate self.

  • You know Dasher and Dancer, and Prancer and Vixen. Comet and Cupid, and Donner and Blitzen. But do you recall... the most famous reindeer of all? Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeernote , as his name implies, was born with a shiny red nose. So bright in fact, that people would even say it glows. While his parents tried to hide it from public eyes, his unique snout was soon discovered and turned Rudolph into a laughing stock. All of the Other Reindeer in the North Pole mocked and humiliated the poor fawn. They called him cruel names and wouldn't let them play in their reindeer games. Even Santa himself acted incredibly jerkish towards him. Time soon passed, and a terrible storm engulfed the North Pole, not letting up even as Christmas Eve approached. Santa was close to cancelling the holiday altogether... until he realized something. He approached the now-adult Rudolph and asked, "Rudolph with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?" And he did. With his nose piercing through the fog and mist, Rudolph led the way around the world and allowing Santa to deliver the presents on time. Christmas was saved, and the reindeer changed their attitude. They came to love him and cheered with glee, that Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer would go down in history.
  • Rudolph ascended to the Pantheon alongside Santa during one particular holiday season. A strong winter storm rolled over the entire Pantheon, causing mass concern over whether or not Christmas would come at all. All hope seemed lost, when, hidden in the fog and snow, a red light was spotted. The deities, both young and old, knew instantly who the light belonged to, with the younger ones cheering as Rudolph led Santa's sleigh through the blizzard, delivering presents as they went. Christmas had been saved once more, with Santa and Rudolph being given temples and titles within the Pantheon as thank you for their efforts.
    • Santa and Rudolph share a temple, leading back to Christmas Town, better known as the North Pole. It is a quaint little area, with the Claus' and their elves living on the first castle on the left. note  The reindeer either live in the castle's stables or in the nearby caves. Business goes on as usual in preparations for December 24th, so should one ever visit, don't be surprised by all the elves and reindeer working and practicing.
  • The version of Rudolph seen in the Pantheon hails from a bizarre timeline, where he, the son of Donner, ran away from home and travelled with an aspiring elf dentist named Hermey and Canadian prospector Yukon Cornelius to an island of misfit toys, confronting the Abominable Snow Monster, and eventually saving his family from said monster. However, his appearance tends to fluctuate from time to time; sometimes he looks like an adult and other times he reverts into a young fawn. As well, his origins are often thrown into question. Some claim he was born to Blitzen, and was rivals with his cousin, Arrow, while others say his story was more simplistic. He will transform into these alternate forms occasionally, but he is most comfortable in his stop-motion body. Besides, it allowed for Hermey, Yukon and fellow reindeer Clarice to arrive as Heralds.
  • Rudolph's love for Christmas is an absolute given and he was surprised to learn there were many other deities associated with the holidays living in the Pantheon. Luckily for him, most of them are on good terms with the reindeer. Besides the Santa and Mrs. Claus he's most familiar with, Rudolph came to work alongside the Guardian, Nicolas Saint North, the young idols Hijiri Mochizuki and Eve Santaclaus, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet To Come. They all do their duties to spread Christmas cheer and joy to the Pantheon and to the Worlds, with Rudolph always leading the way with his nose lighting the darkness.
    • Initially, Rudolph had a difficult time trusting Ebeneezer Scrooge, Jack Skellington and The Grinch, due to their previous attempts to take over, sabotage or simply disregard Christmas altogether. Not to mention the latter two having dogs (Zero and Max) that they used in roles similar to reindeer. Then the young buck discovered their histories, learning how all three went through epiphanies and changed their ways to cherish the holiday season. Nowadays, Rudolph will occasionally enlist their help to spread Christmas cheer to the Pantheon... while keeping Jack from stealing the show.
  • One Christmas Eve, Rudolph and Santa met three (former) homeless folks from Japan, named Gin, Hana and Miyuki, and witnessed their story of helping reunite an abandoned baby with her parents. Santa noted the trio's incredible luck on their journey and kindness to the child and decided to give them a place in the Pantheon. Rudolph often stops by the check up on them and even invite them to the North Pole to help in the festivities.
  • Rudolph knows first-hand how it felt being ostracized for his differences and has gone about the Pantheon making friends with others like him. He is close to Naruto Uzumaki since the two were picked on in their childhood before earning the respect of others after saving them. He's also friends with Dumbo, often flying alongside the big-eared elephant during the holidays and helping Santa, The imaginative, Canadian red-head Anne Shirley, and the Fire Nation born circus performer Ty Lee, who took to the reindeer almost instantly, even praising him for using his gifts for good. The more cynical deities often make fun of these friendships, considering the red-nosed reindeer and company a bunch of mismatched misfits and freaks. Rudolph and the others don't really care for their opinions. Friends stick together no matter what, after all. He also became close to Haruka Kotoura and was heartbroken when he heard how she couldn't control her telepathic power, causing major issues. Haruka was surprised to find out that she could read Rudolph's mind despite being an animal. She's actually ok with it because most times, his mind is filled with sugar plums, fairies, Christmas and Clarice.
    • Despite this, Rudolph does have limits. He once heard of the dealings of the Diclonius, Lucy. While he did feel sorry for her at first, once he heard about the end result of her bullying he felt sick to his stomach. He avoids interacting or even being near her.
  • Rudolph's not exactly a big fan of bullies due to his own experiences being picked on. He initially frowned at Shoya Ishida and his bullying of his deaf classmate Shoko Nishimiya, as well as distrusting the young Katsuki Bakugo for him picking on the young Izuku Midoriya, which reminded Rudolph of his cousin Arrow. After hearing about the two bullies going through their own major changes, Rudolph tried to interact with them a bit more. Shoya and Shoko are on good terms with the flying deer, though Bakugo wishes not to be pitied by the deer.
  • His journey to the Island of Misfit Toys and meeting its forgotten inhabitants came back to Rudolph's memory when he encountered an equally bizarre group of sentient toys in the Pantheon; led by a cowboy doll named Woody and a spaceman action figure named Buzz Lightyear. The toys had their own experiences with being lost, forgotten and eventually finding new owners, so they connected quickly with the red-nosed reindeer. They even travelled to the island to help other forgotten toys find new owners to play with and cherish.
  • Not long after ascending, Rudolph found friends in the Pantheon's other resident hoofstock. In particular, the white-tailed deer Bambi, former farm cow-turned-reindeer Annabelle, and the Legendary Pokémon, Xerneas, who is sometimes spotted in the forests surrounding the Arctic, its multi-coloured antlers glowing with the aurora borealis. He was also happy to meet the blue-nosed reindeer Tony Chopper, although he was initially weirded out by his small size and strange appearance. All four have come by the North Pole from time to time, with Bambi bringing his own friends, Thumper the rabbit and Flower the skunk, to enjoy the Christmas festivities. They all, however, know to stay away from the ruthless goat Grogar, who isn't quite up for the holiday joy, happiness and... you know, being nice whatsoever.
    • Speaking of deer, Rudolph encountered a strange woman named ViVi, a member of a K-Pop girl group called LOOΠΔ. She was considered an oddball due to her being an android, not to mention being from Hong Kong. Despite this, Rudolph began talking with her, at the urging of her fellow idols. It turned out that she was a friendly individual, even revealing that her symbolic animal was a deer, which made things all the more perfect. From then on out, Rudolph often stops by to check up on the singer and dancer, even inviting her to the North Pole to hang out. On one such occasion, ViVi came over to Rudolph and called him cute. His response was to leap into the air and shout;
    Rudolph: I'm Cute! I'm Cute! She said I'm cute!
  • One time, Rudolph and his friend Frosty the Snowman had a run-in with an evil winter warlock called Winterbolt, who once tried to use them in his plan to destroy Santa. After that, the young reindeer has remained cautious around similar ice-controlling beings, as well as a revived Winterbolt, who continues to haunt the Pantheon. He's wary of Lissandra and The Night's King, both of whom want to plunge the Pantheon into a long and unforgiving winter. To that end, Rudolph found new help with Jon Snow, the former King in the North having a bit of experience in dealing with wights and White Walkers. He also befriended the time-travelling warrior Lucina, following a scenario similar to when the reindeer had to save the New Year.
    • He actually feels sorry for Ice King, however, due to his tragic past. He can't really imagine what it's like to be that insane.
  • Rudolph became good friends with Queen Anna, her older sister Elsa and the living snowman Olaf. The former initially was a tough sell, due to her cryokinetic powers, but then they started talking. He learned of Elsa having to hide her talent under her parent's instructions, just as his parents once did, as well as being ostricized by the public once it was discovered. Elsa often makes it her duty to provide a white Christmas for the Pantheon, and is more than happy to help Rudolph by keeping the worst storms at bay. Anna meanwhile loves to prepare and throw extravagant parties around the holiday season, and she likes to invite Rudolph over to entertain the kids, not to mention giving another reindeer friend to her fiance Kristoff and his faithful caribou Sven. As for Olaf? Rudolph gets along with him because, in a way, he reminds the deer a great deal of Frosty the Snowman.
  • He once had a nasty run-in with the Wendigo, a flesh-eating monster whose sharp teeth and piercing call reminded the buck of the Abominable Snow Monster of the North. Luckily for the reindeer, he was saved by Braum, who reminded Rudolph of Yukon Cornelius. However, after hearing that the Wendigo was actually a girl who was forced to eat her dead sister's body, Rudolph was both saddened and disgusted. He also stays clear of the. Rudolph is also incredibly disturbed by SCP-4666, due to its sadistic brutality towards naughty children, Spooky the ghost, who murdered Santa on one occasion, and Robot Santa, who often attacks people on Christmas regardless if they're naughty or nice.
  • There are many rumours surrounding Rudolph. Some claim to have seen Rudolph shooting laser beams out of his shining red nose, while others heard he was hit by a 747 and a flock of seagulls while flying over Barcelona. Rudolph has denied these claims, citing that the instigators probably drank too much eggnog and just hallucinated it. But eyewitnesses were quick to report that the reindeer in Spain was hit mainly by the plane.
