Costumes and Equipment

Formerly part of the House of Personal Appearance, the House of Costumes is a big wardrobe with hundreds of clothing for every deity in the Pantheon.

There are mirrors, but fortunately are present only in their changers. It should be noted that the members of the House of Crime are not allowed to enter due to their tendency of stealing clothes.

Many Deities are obsessed with buying new outfits, so much that members of the House of Commerce authorized this House as a shopping mall.

Notwithstanding the split, as mentioned above, this house still maintains its close proximity with the House of Personal Appearance.

As Jasmine and Cinderella are Princesses of Heart, security is very tight, so any attempts to capture them or use them to recreate the χ-blade will result in a temporary ban from the House. Repeated offenders will receive a full ban from the House.

For reasons unknown, people who wear a costume during Halloween and are present in this House will become their costumes.

Due to the large amount of deities, this house has been split into the following divisions:

The Clothing Trendsetters

    Castiel 
Castiel, God of Angels in Overcoats (Jimmy Novak is his vessel, Cas, Clarence, Asstiel, Feathers, Halo)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/castiel.jpg
  • Intermediate God (Was an Overdeity briefly)
  • Symbol: His longcoat
  • Alignment: Neutral Good with neutral tendencies (Lawful Neutral when an Overdeity)
  • Portfolio: Breakout Character, Uses Jimmy Novak's body as a vessel, Angelic Beauty, The Atoner, Badass Baritone, Beware the Nice Ones, No Social Skills, Perma-Stubble, Limited Wardrobe, Unkempt Beauty, Cannot Tell a Lie, Friend to All Living Things,
  • Domains: Light, Healing, Travel, Repose, Good
  • Allies: The Winchesters, Bobby Singer, Chuck Shurley, John Constantine, God (God, the Devil and Bob), Archangel Michael, Rosemary Woodhouse, Father Damian Kerras and Father Lankester Merrin, The Fonz
  • Enemies: Lucifer, The Princes of Hell, YHVH, Lucifer, Mephisto
  • Odd Friendship: George Bailey, Bob Belcher
  • Odd Relationship: Crowley, Gabriel
  • Not so different from: Klaus Wulfenbach
  • Once thought to be around for only a few episodes, the angel Castiel quickly became one of the most prominent characters of his world. Even when many of the Winchester's allies have perished, the angel has endured everything in order to help them out. The Fonz himself was present to usher in his ascension.
    • He only made it into the Pantheon under the request of John Constantine. He even managed to take some of his followers for a start. That does mean that Cas now owns the Hellblazer a favor, one of many that do.
    • It should be noted that much of the reason for his ascension is because of the sheer massive amount of popularity among his followers. He has firmly put himself as the One True Threesome with Sam and Dean. The pairing has said to have singlehandedly kept the show running for so long. None of the three have said whether they will actually do it to keep the fanbase from getting too upset.
  • Castiel is an angel but can only maintain a physical form through possessing a human host, much like demons in his world. Only this time Jimmy Novak voluntarily gets possessed. Turns out Jimmy had a much higher pitched voice as a human. Trollkaiger had a field day mocking Cas over it.
    • The possession isn't completely absolute. The angel seemed to have inherited a desire for burgers, even though Castiel doesn't really need to eat. This became a huge boon for Bob Belcher's business because he knows Cas will eat a whole lot of burgers and can pay for it.
  • Once had the power of God himself... for all of one episode before utterly failing at it. He would rather not be reminded of that time.
    • Klaus thought otherwise. As someone who thought he was justified in his actions, he hopes that Cas would revert to his omnipotent form. With enough experience, he believes Cas won't make the same mistakes the first time. The angel retorted by saying there won't be a "next time" as he will never let that happen again.
    • He did have an interesting conversation with Bruce Nolan about it. The regular human knew that taking over said powers was a lot harder than it looks. Neither would say who had it worse, but they bonded well over the experience.
    • His constant ability to screw up his abilities has caught the interest if Mephisto. A known manipulator of pure souls, he hopes to steer Castiel away from the GUAG into his own domain. Cas has thus far resisted temptation. He's dealt with enough corruption with Dean, Lucifer and others on his world.
  • Is in the unenviable position of being courted by BOTH sides of the Law-Chaos side. YHWH once disguised himself as God and tried to indoctrinate him into serving the Absolute Lawmaker. It may have worked if he had done it in an earlier time. Cas now knows better than to blindly follow orders. He firmly rebuffed the offer before moving on. Lucifer tried a more lenient approach, taking him to his temple and showering him with gifts before asking for some favors. That didn't go well either, as he did not want to be under the control of Lucifer as he had been before.
    • Was surprised to find the God in the Pantheon. He was more friendly towards that deity, though he hasn't promised full devotion just yet. Cas was just surprised at how laid back this deity was.
  • If you ever need someone to sling insults at your foes... Castiel is not that person. At all. His crowning achievement was calling the Archangel himself "assbutt."
    • This made his eventual meeting with Archangel Michael to be an awkward affair. Thankfully, this version understood the situation, even thanking him for preventing the Apocalypse. He did make sure to watch over Castiel, given his penchant to making stupid mistakes.
  • He may be an angel, but he's far from what one would expect of a Guardian Angel. That and Cas has made so many mistakes he's considering to get himself a guardian angel. Even then, George Bailey has faith that he can continue to do good.
  • With that said, he did promise to watch over Rosemary after the incident with her child.
  • Knows a thing or two about exorcising demons from people and does so on lesser beings on a regular basis. The Gods of Exorcism have seen him as a huge help in dealing with possessions. Cas hopes that they can produce enough followers to deal with the many demons in his own world.
  • People have yet to live down Castiel's ineffectual 'assbutt' insult. Even the LOL Rangers can't help but snicker whenever they hear the word.

    Rarity 
Rarity, Goddess of Fashion Designers (Marshmallow, Radiance, Diamante Elegante)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rarity_5.png
Rarity in the Distant Finale 
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Cutie Mark (three diamonds)
  • Theme Songs: "Becoming Popular" (The Pony Everypony Should Know) and "Generosity"
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Fashion Designer for art's sake, getting into fights despite it, loving her sweet cat Opal, doing stuff for others first, having an obsession with cleanliness, Attention Whore With A Heart of Gold, Self-Made Mare, Feels Good Doing Good, Makes elaborate dresses encrusted in gems, Dramatic over minor things, Girly Bruiser, realizes her own mistakes without others pointing it out, occasional Skewed Priorities, benevolent Social Climber
  • Domain: Fashion, Gems, Generosity
  • Heralds: Opalescence, her Persian cat (Opal for short), Sassy Saddles (manager of the Canterlot Branch, Canterlot Carousel), Coco Pommel (head of the Manehatttan Branch, Rarity For You), Sandbar and Yona (inheritors of Carousel Boutique in the future?)
  • Followers: Bronies, Topaz, Jacobim Mugata, Madame Sharn, Matilda King
  • Allies:
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Gangrel and Luna Vachon
  • Enemies: Nightmare Moon, Queen Chrysalis, King Sombra, Lord Tirek, Grogar, BROKEN Matt Hardy, Junko Enoshima, Ragyo Kiryuin, Nui Harime
  • Opposed by: The Houyhnhnms
  • Rarity began creating costumes in her days as a filly, though her perfectionism made her think of her dresses as inferior despite the opinions of her teacher and classmates. One day, her horn led her to a rock filled with gemstones which finally made her satisfied with her costumes. From then on, Rarity worked hard on creating only the best and most luxurious of garments, befriending Twilight Sparkle when she first moved to Ponyville. She represents the element of generosity.
  • Having been among the first deities to arrive here in its early days, the rush to ascend the Mane Six in response to Discord's presence (back when he was still evil) shafted her with the tropes All-Natural Gem Polish and Gem-Encrusted. While gems are what she works with, it's not what defines her. What does define her though—in terms of tropes at least—is her career as a fashion designer. As such, she has moved once more, this time in the House of Costumes. And as a House guardian, too; a privilege among the Mane Six shared by Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash.
    • She was horrified by the greed in her original residence in the House of Commerce (and has left it), with the possible exception of Jem and Charlotte LaBouff. As such, she spends most of her time in her new home, or in the House of Personal Appearance. She provides clothes to those who are both deserving and are in greatest need (or pay her well, usually in favors owed, or truly exotic fabrics and other materials) throughout the Pantheon. It helps that her temple is a copy of her home/store Carousel Boutique.
  • Uryu Ishida once challenged her to a sewing contest, and Rarity was quite surprised that she lost by a huge margin, since she had never realized that the contest was being judged on technical skill and difficulty, rather than the attractiveness of the results. Both parties readily agreed that neither had any ability or desire to challenge the other in their own facet of the sewing arts.
  • Still "Just Friends" with Spike, much to his chagrin. And despite some efforts by shippers in the House of Love to hook them up (or hook her up with Applejack or any other friend of hers), she has not changed her stance, though she's come to treat him like a little brother.
  • Would like to remind everyone that she is "not whining" but "complaining." Whatever you do, do NOT give her the chance to whine as she will reply, "But I thought you wanted whining!"
    • Amazingly, she actually found that someone in the House of Combat also copied this tactic. Said God? John Cena. There was a bit of silence when she heard what he sounded like. Three seconds later, she was rolling on the floor laughing and quickly asking if she could design some new shirts for him in purple.
      • It turns out, Rarity is actually a huge wrestling fan and even has her own wrestling name called "Diamante Elegante" and was capable of easily defeating two wrestlers all by herself. It does make her reactions to her sister and the other Crusaders being friends with two vampire wrestlers — later the New Day — to be more hilarious now.
  • Compared to other unicorns, who usually rely on their magic to do the heavy lifting, on top of wresting, Rarity is quite capable hoof-to-hoof, and is exceptionally strong for her race (still pales in comparison to her other physical-oriented friends), being able to drag large carts of gems with ease, and carry a rock twice her size on her back. By the end of the series, she's become a Jack-of-All-Trades in terms of combat with a few extra laser blast and barrier spells.
    • In terms of telekinesis, while her lifting limit pales compared to Twilight, not even the Spirit of Magic can telekinetically manipulate multiple small objects with as much precision as Rarity does, mostly for dressmaking supplies.
  • Befitting the Element of Generosity, Rarity is really good at reading most people (that thing with Prince Blueblood was more of a willing blindness before she was eventually pushed too far by him), and shows a much more profound ability to catch on when she is being callous or inconsiderate to someone by herself, compared to her friends who usually need to be handed An Aesop after their actions have already spiralled out of control.
    • This is justified in that her job as a fashion designer requires her to both be observant of minute details and form a quick and accurate judgment of someone's personality.
  • For your own good, never speak of Tom the Boulder in her presence or of her initial "infatuation" for him.
  • Has politely suggested that the Princesses might wish to wear a tad more clothing whenever they are actually IN the House of Beast, so that nobody gets confused about their intelligence levels.
  • Is usually seen designing clothes in her own shop, the Carousel Boutique. Other times, she's trying to make sure her little sister isn't getting into trouble. Again.
    • However, upon learning of Sweetie Belle obtaining her cutie mark, Rarity was shown bursting into tears on how her sister has grown up.
    • Samurai Jack often visits her shop to have her mend or replace his clothes, and she seems to enjoy listening to whatever story he has for how it happened this time.
    • As of late, just as she now has at least two additional branches of her Boutique in Canterlot and Manehattan, Rairty hopes to expand her franchise in the Pantheon as well, each hosted by certain followers of hers. Her time in the Pantheon has given her experiences with several body types. Pony, little dragon, human, it matters not; if someone can wear clothing, she can make clothes for them, and if she can't, she can learn how until she can.
    • Eventually, after helping ascend Millie Collins, she thought it was necessary to establish an official organization in the name of fashion. It was decreed in a joint effort by the Houses of Costumes, Commerce, and Profession to create a pantheonic fashion industry (named Dressed for Divinity), where fashion deities can come together to recreate trends of old, or start completely new ones, and show them for the world to see.
  • Gets along well with Charlotte LaBouf, who shares her ideals of finding a prince charming of her own and consoled Rarity over the Grand Galloping Gala incident with Prince Blueblood. Rarity has also helped design dresses for Charlotte, who in turn has also given away many of the dresses to girls so that "we all can be princesses".
  • She has a very dark secret. She wears FALSE EYELASHES!
  • Befriended the zombie-girl Squigly over their mutual friendship with Spike, similar personalities, tastes, and love of baths. Rarity has even gone so far as to make new combat-capable dresses for Squigly to wear, stating that, even undead, a lady needs to look her best at all times, especially in battle.
  • Was given her ultimate task by GUAG; recreating Senketsu with required Life Fibers. Even though they were used to make combat clothing in its own universe, it was still a difficult task for Rarity because of the unknown material. But after weeks of trial and error, Rarity was able to bring Senketsu back to life. She also made him Better Than New with the ability to change his form to any other clothing. She also added some gems on his scarf.
  • Her brony fans have been petitioning her to fight Shen Gaoren for some inane reason. She sees no reason to entertain this notion.
  • Months after Nightmare Moon first ascended to the Pantheon, an unknown deity managed to remove her from Princess Luna completely… only for it to be plunged into Rarity, turning her into Nightmare's second coming. A fierce skirmish between Nightmare and her allies against Luna, Celestia, the remainder of the Mane Six, Spike, and all of their friends (including some gods whose followers were Equestrians), which eventually became a skirmish between forces in the Grand United Alliances of Good and Evil. Eventually, the Nightmare was purged, and Rarity was saved.
  • One day, a young doe named Velvet approached Rarity while she was at work in her boutique and begrudgingly asked for a round in combat. After an unspecified prodding of a Berserk Button, the two engaged in combat, with Rarity forced to use her sewing supplies and gems in conjunction with her own martial arts to counter Velvet's ice magic. Rarity has since refused to go into further detail regarding the aftermath, other than that it was like fighting a "dark mirror" version of herself.
  • Somehow, she can play a few moments with a intense metal guitar solo on an acoustic guitar. The House of Music is baffled by this feat.

The Ominous Garbs

    Albert Wesker 
Seven minutes... seven minutes is all I can spare to read my profile.

Albert Wesker, God of Sinister Shades (Wesker, Practical Al, Specimen no. 013)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wesker_revelations_2_render.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His sunglasses with a red eye glowing behind them.
  • Theme Music: Mercenaries theme, Wind of Madness, or its MVC3 remix
  • Alignment: Neutral or Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: The Chessmaster, Uncomfortable Subtext With His Enemies, Evil Is Sexy, A God Am I, Genius Bruiser, Sunglasses at Night, Social Darwinist, Large Ham, Impaling People Through The Chest With His Bare Hands, Being Associated With Eggs For Some Reason
  • Domains: Hubris, Power, Planning, Betrayal, Charisma
  • Followers: Ubik, Scourge the Hedgehog, Hernan "Shades" Alvarez, Megumi Kitaniji
  • Additional Relationships: Jake Muller (illegitimate son), Alex Wesker (his 'sister')
  • Allies: William Birkin, HUNK, Relius Clover, Caleb Goldman, Mesogog, Shiro Tagachi, Edward Richtofen, Dr. Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus, Charles zi Brittania, Senator Armstrong, Thrax, The Combine
  • Rivals: Erik Lensherr/Magneto, Peter Parker/Spider-Man
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Victor von Doom
  • Enemies:
  • Supported by: Nurgle
  • What can be said about Albert Wesker? He is the man who is behind almost all of the events concerning his franchise as part of his plan to Take Over the World by weeding out all of its weaklings. He almost won but was foiled by his old archnemesis Chris Redfield and finished off by eating rockets near an active volcano. That didn't stop Wesker: his death brought him a bigger purpose, to take over the Pantheon and rule alongside the strongest people he can find.
    • Both he and Charles zi Britannia held positions related to the Evilutionary Imperative, a complication which led to Wesker having to move. Although the position he was assigned afterward didn't really have to do with his motivations, he nevertheless doesn't mind. After all, his dark shades are a very iconic part of him.
  • Wesker's first villainous act was to betray and manipulate his S.T.A.R.S. teammates, acting as The Mole for Umbrella Corporation until he was supposedly killed by the T-Tyrant. It's no secret that he would rather see Chris and Jill dead; in fact, he actually went to confront them one more time, but he wasn't able to quite finish them all since the GUAG had their back. Wesker promised that he will return and crush them like the bugs they are, especially Chris.
  • Turns out he has a son, although an illegitimate one named Jake Muller. Although he doesn't have a strong opinion about daddy Albert, mostly because he just abandoned him and his mother at a very early age, of course so caught up in his "take over the world" scheme that he didn't even care. Both eventually met, but they quickly came to blows after Wesker showed no signs of sympathy for Jake and was only interested in the C-Virus he carried within. They had to be separated and Jake swears that he will take down his father for good.
    • The meeting with his 'sister' Alex went much better than his encounter with Jake, mostly because their goals are very similar, even if Alex also has her own ambitions. Turns out that the Weskers were Not Blood Siblings, but rather test subjects of Project W, an eugenics project masterminded by Lord Ozwell Spencer with the intention of creating a race of advanced human beings. Surely enough, he did, even if Albert and Alex, the two lone survivors, turned to have ambitions of their own that went against Umbrella's wishes.
  • Wesker's goal in the Pantheon mostly aims to one thing, and that is gathering all types of biological weapons and viruses and using their power to take over the Pantheon and then the world. His research over the various viruses attracted the interest of others who shared his goals of evolution like Edward Richtofen, Dr. Octopus, Dr. Neo Cortex and Mesogod, all of which Wesker made special partnerships with.
  • Has formed a friendly rivalry of sorts with Spider-Man, after the Galactus incident. He is the only hero who doesn't seem to be worth killing, mostly because Wesker is actually very interested in researching Spidey's powers to see if he can weaponize it.
    • He also has a fierce rivalry with Magneto, mostly because he stole a sample from him, and while Erik recognizes Wesker as a strong foe, he doesn't consider him a true mutant, saying that his strength was only achieved by artificial means. They have come to blows many times because of that.
  • Endorses the product "Old Uroboros" as "The Man Your Man Could Kill Like".
  • Wesker is a big believer of Might Makes Right, this being one of the big motivations of why he wants to "cleanse the world" with Uroboros. He has a few supporters like Charles as aforementioned and Senator Armstrong. Wesker even offered both the gift of Uroboros but they refused, preferring to stay with their regular powers powers, though they are still willing to go along and support Wesker's plan.
  • Even though he actually is a god now, Wesker is still not satisfied, and now seeks to become something greater than an Overdeity so that he may rule over the Pantheon as "the only god". This drew the ire of fellow Mad Scientist Mayuri Kurotsuchi, because Wesker seeks perfection, which is also what Relius Clover seeks. And this also drew the ire of Miki Aono, as she correctly stated that he's making 'perfection' look bad by being a bastard.
    • Ultimately, however, Wesker would betray and backstab Relius, in tandem with Revolver Ocelot, as both of them proposed to Melkor about tossing Relius aside, leaving the puppeteer severely depowered. Wesker only smirks in return; that's one more obstacle for the sole perfection throne removed.
  • Due to his work on diseases, Nurgle has become quite fond of him, even thinking of maybe turning him into a Daemon Prince.
  • While the two worked together during the merging of two worlds, his relationship to Dr. Doom is tenuous at best, particularly after the time they spent as roommates.
  • There was one incident that occurred in GUAE where after successfully creating a B.O.W. made of Technocyte Infested, it escaped and Wesker wasn't able to retrieve it. He wanted to make up for this when he heard about Hayden Tenno's Technocyte Virus and partnered with Richtofen to capture him. Both almost succeeded but the Tenno managed to fend them off before they could capture Hayden, leaving Wesker furious. He's still planning to somehow locate the missing B.O.W. in the future.
    • There was also another incident where Wesker descended from the Pantheon and discovered the Arms Virus, a mysterious pathogen that bestows powers to the women who contract it. He once mixed it with the T-virus to form the T-Valkyrie Virus, a virus that could infect both men and women and turn them into Extars and Liberators, while humans who rejected it turned into the twisted half-Arm mutants called Draugr. Whatever he has sought to achieve with this apparently failed, but rumor has it that he hasn't gotten rid of it entirely: indeed, during the Ragnarok Incident, T-Valkyrie made a triumphant comeback, creating both male Liberators and Draugr to further complicate an already-chaotic mess. Additionally, a BSAA hack into his files revealed a chilling phrase: Project ARM/URO-Jormungandr.
  • "The right to be a God… That right is now mine."

  • The son of the Phoenix King Aenarion and the Hag Sorceress, Morathi, Malekith was believed to have destined to be his father's successor, although some digressed, thinking his hot-headed nature made him unsuitable. This culminated when Bel Shanaar was chosen to lead the Elves, a fact that Malekith and his mother did not take kindly. Around this time, Malekith struck a friendship with a Dwarf, Snorri and from there, an alliance between Dwarves and Elves was formed. This made Malekith relatively popular as a warrior and general. He later came across an artifact known as the Circlet of Iron. This bolstered his already high magical affinity, but it also allowed Malekith to witness the Forces of Chaos, which further convinced him that he was to govern the Elves and that Bel Shanaar was too weak. He plotted an overthrow, which succeeded when Bel Shanaar was poisoned to death and Malekith framed him for being a believer of Chaos. When the time came, Malekith approached the Flame of Asuryan, which his father had stepped into and emerged unscathed, earning his title of the Phoenix King. He entered the flame... only to suddenly wail in agony as the fire seared his body horribly before barely exiting the flame in terrible agony. His followers immediately carried him over to his mother, who commissioned a priest to forge an armor to save Malekith. He was soon encased in the Armor of Midnight permanently as a means to keep his burnt wounds from further harming him. After a civil war against the new Phoenix King Caledor and the destruction of the city of Nagarythe, Malekith would later find and govern the city of Naggaroth. He would later instigate a conflict between Elves and Dwarves known as the War of the Beard in an effort to prevent the two races from allying against him.
  • Malekith learned about the Pantheon sometime after The End Times. His curiosity piqued when he realized there were numerous races and individuals there who shared great power unlike any that he had seen before and that this new world was unlike his own. His attention was fully caught when he realized Nagash, Archaon and the Chaos Gods were also in the Pantheon. Not wanting to miss the opportunity in ruling the world, Malekith willed himself into the Pantheon, riding his draconic steed Sulekh and glancing at the new lands with a look of anticipation and determination. He swung his sword, The Destroyer forward, followed by a legion of Dark Elves roaring through to cultivate a new land for themselves. Malekith was now ready to duel against his greatest enemies again, and once again, he assured that he will succeed.
  • Malekith is mentally unpredictable. He is an excellent strategist and a tactical genius when it comes to combat, but if things however do not go his way, he reverts to a raging madman who would go out of his way to butcher anyone in his vicinity. The latter has had to do with when Malekith tried to enter the Flame of Asuryan, which also damaged his mental thoughts to the point where he has psychotic bouts.
  • Because of his draconic steed, Sulekh, Malekith takes his time to visit the Dragons Sub-House in an effort to capture and tame a few dragons for the Dark Elves to use as mounts. This is also mutual for Prehistoric Beasts as Malekith and several Dark Elves have mounted creatures known as the Cold Ones. So far, Malekith has taken an interest on various tyrannosaurs to have as a secondary mount should Sulekh become unavailable. This caught the attention of the Gang of Seven, who are fiercely opposed to him, knowing that Malekith would likely capture dinosaurs for his own nefarious uses.
  • His reputation and villainy aside, Malekith isn't utterly depraved like how a lot of people tend to think him as. If anything, Malekith does have some valor and honor which greatly contrasts his bloodthirsty race in a lot of ways. He has a lot of respect for his father and much of his personality can be interpreted as Malekith wanting to really live up to the Phoenix King's legacy. There's also his wife, Allisara whom Malekith dearly misses. And lastly, while he can come across as disproportionate towards his servants, he is willing to reward and praise them should they get his job done.
    • He does have a very strained and complicated relationship with his mother Morathi. While she did save Malekith's life and has fought alongside him countless times, Malekith isn't too trustworthy of her, in addition to Morathi being far more devious and manipulative than the Witch King himself. Not helping is the fact that Morathi is secretly a believer of the Chaos God Slannesh and Malekith is entirely opposed to Chaos in its entirety. However, there are rumors that Malekith actually might have slept with his mother. Malekith hasn't said anything on the matter, but its noted he gets incredibly furious over these comments.
  • Hates Chaos in all of its forms and has dedicated himself to vanquishing it as they pose a threat to all of Elvenkind. The impeding Invasions of Chaos was also one of the reasons Malekith sought out to become a leader. Hence, he opposes the Grand United Alliance of Evil and Melkor due to their alliance with the Chaos Gods.
  • Hates Darkseid, thinking his brutality and goals are only a means for himself, despite Naggaroth and Apokolips not being too different towards one another regarding the treatment of other races and slaves. However, despite this, Malekith would be forced to fight alongside the Lord of Tyranny, much to his dismay and anger when it comes to the Chaos Gods and the GUAE. Not helping is that Archaon is also working for Darkseid, despite the Everchosen not being comfortable with him either.
  • Is amused to see there are two beings who proclaim the title of Phoenix King and Witch-King. However, when he did meet this particular Phoenix King, Fire Lord Ozai, Malekith immediately disliked him, thinking of him as a pathetic man who would rather rely mostly on his henchmen and while being a strong combatant, not being well-versed in it either. However, what solidified his hate on Ozai was the fact that he was absolutely shit at being a family man. Sure Malekith is bloodthirsty and ruthless like the rest of the Dark Elves, but he still loves some of his family and respected his father above all. The Witch-King of Middle-Earth is a lot softer when it comes to Malekith's thoughts. The two have a fierce rivalry due to their titles, but other than that, they're just amused by it and they do respect each other's efficiency in battle.
    • Some Pantheon residents have compared Malekith as being a skinnier Sauron. This made the Dark King want to meet the Dark Lord, which culminated when the two decided to just meet up after several comments. While Malekith dislikes that fact that Sauron is Darkseid's right-hand man, they did acknowledge each other's power and Sauron has stated that Malekith is far better a magician and fighter than Saruman would ever be. They're currently rivals, though Malekith would be willing to provide some military support for Sauron, though in his mind, its because he secretly wants him and Darkseid to destroy the GUAE and the Chaos Gods.
  • Respects the House of Family due to Malekith having strong family values and has made it very clear that it would be one of the few Houses that the Dark King would not consider attacking. That said, not everyone is accepting of the fact that Malekith is a warmongering, occasionally insane warlock. Hallie Parker and Annie James are among those who have openly expressed dislike on the Dark King, stating that he failed to live up to his father's legacy and that his relationship with his mother is already incredibly strained. Malekith however scoffs these claims, but has decided not to attack Hallie and Annie out of honor and respect.
  • His unquenchable rage and dreaded reputation has made Malekith respected by Atrocitus and Sinestro who feel as if Malekith is a great candidate for possessing a Red and Yellow Lantern. Malekith is interested in the Lantern Corps and their emotion-driven powers, but has currently held off from wearing a ring until he really needs to.
  • Thor now has to deal with another enemy by the name of Malekith. The Dark King finds this rather interesting and has traded blows against the God of Thunder several times. There's also Wonder Woman who has given Malekith trouble various times to the point where the Dark Elf has treated the Amazonian Heir as a Worthy Opponent.
  • His mastery in Magic has made Malekith several enemies, but he especially recognizes Medivh and Homura Akemi as his most notable ones due to their incredible potency in their skills and power. Strangely enough, despite being enemies, Malekith doesn't bear any ill will towards Madoka Kaname, even being rather sympathizing about what she has been going through regarding Kyubey and the Great Upheaval. However, he's fervently opposed by Sayaka Miki, so Malekith doesn't have much to interact with regarding Madoka.
  • Even he admits to think that Nagash is a monster. Unsurprisingly, nearly everyone, heroes included, is on Malekith's side when it comes that this consensus. Nagash however couldn't care less and simply mocks Malekith under the pretense that he learned further Dark Magic from a trio of Dark Elves that he killed anyway. When if comes to family, Malekith and Nagash contrast each other a lot, though in the end, Malekith comes out as the morally better out of the two.
  • Malekith has found himself to be rather similar to Darth Vader and Golbez. While the two of them are opposed against him, Malekith is rather courteous of them and does sympathize with them in more ways than one. Although that said, Malekith is a lot less honorable than them and indulges on some degree of sadism, just like the rest of his race.
    • Asdrubael Vect likes Malekith and his race for being excellent practitioners of torture and general sadism. Malekith on the other hand thinks Asdrubael is too much, even for him to bear. That said, Asdrubael would really want Malekith to be a part of his alliance, though the Dark King knows well enough that he'll be quick to backstab him and isn't taking a chance.
    • Met Madara Uchiha whilst Malekith was travelling around the Pantheon in an effort to familiarize himself with the world. The two have acknowledged each other for having a ton of family baggage and that both were outcasts, though Malekith would rather keep to himself, in contrast to Madara's prattle on the worthlessness of the current world. Despite a few battles now and again, the two respect each other to an extent.
  • He is known to pity those who've been through severe family issues, considering much of his personality and goals stems from winning his father's approval and being a worthy successor. He has sympathized with Tenzin, Naruto and Hinata over this and treats Zuko more formally than most of his opponents. That said, they aren't going to be any gentle towards him.
  • Has recently returned to the Warhammer World ready to once against wage war against the the High Elves, Tyrion, Teclis and the Forces of Chaos all over again.
I am Malekith! Son of Aenarion, the daemons’ bane. Hear my name and know me, the rightful king of the elves!

  • SCP-035 is a malevolent mask capable of possessing anyone who wears it, having escaped containment during a breach initiated by SCP-106 and latching onto a unsuspecting Foundation personnel. Having managed to escape and wander about the Pantheon, the mask kept changing locations secretly and many decayed bodies were found overtime, all with a black corrosive element flowing from the corpses. Eventually it was caught after it latest host perished and was unable to find another in time, being discovered by the Court of Gods and immediately recontained by the Foundation. Having noted of the highly dangerous nature of the mask, it was given the position of Murderous Mask.
  • Given that once latched it can mentally manipulate its host to do whatever it likes, SCP-035 is usually given a new host and made to stay far away for anyone higher than lesser. Recurring to D-Class in containment was something the Court of Gods was very unhappy to allow but they also tend to grab any evil doer that needs punishment (since death rarely sticks) and so when they are caught, they are thrown into SCP-035's temple, provided they are irredeemably evil.
  • Some believe that SCP-035 is best suited contained in the House of Toxicity due to its secretions, however it was advised against since many there could resist its corrosive effects, making them ideal hosts. One figures that the mask tried to take over was the Lich, who proved Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth and SCP-035 fell off. The Possessive Mask would rather not mention what he experienced.
  • Due to resembling a comedy mask, SCP-035 tried to sneak itself into the House of Theater to find a new host. 035 was quickly identified and relocated back to its containment/temple, so it couldn't hijack anyone there. It later showed interest in Metron, due to the potential of the Mobius Chair's knowledge merged with its own ambitions.
  • Seeks those who can resist or are immune to its corrosive nature, so it may have a permanent host. Because of this, it wants in on the Forms of Immortality, and they want it out. Heroic masks and mask users like Aku Aku and Hata no Kokoru want no part of him either.
  • SCP-035 has tried to take control of those under control of Jervis Tetch's hats, but the rival mind control got in the way of its control, annoying SCP-035. 035 is quite interested in the House of Mind Control in hopes of controlling more people than just it's host, or somehow overcoming the corrosion.
  • For an evil mask, SCP-035 is polite and charismatic, always looking to manipulate people to escape containment. He was most amused by Johan Liebert for how he uses charm and skill to manipulate and emotionally destroy others, though knows he isn't someone who it shouldn't try to take as a host. It admires the Wicked Cultured behavior of Zinyak as well.
  • Seems to be a demon of some sorts. About the only house where SCP-035 is on its best behavior is the House of Demons, and has become friends with Pazuzu. Faust was warned deities not in the know that the Possessive Mask cannot be trusted. The exorcists are looking to purge the demon from the mask.
  • Aware of many other sentient masks in the pantheon. SCP-035 was most annoyed that it couldn't attach himself to Stanley Ipkiss or Doctor Fate, since they already had masks on and 035 wanted the masks' power for itself. It competes for power with the other evil masks, however has a fondness with Jack of Blades due to the demonic-like force inhabiting the mask reminding the Possessive Mask of itself.
