  • Not long after Hector's ascension, two divine looking beings, a woman in red with a large hat and a skeletal humanoid with large black wings were seen out on a date in the House of Love. The Court of the Gods were notified of their presence and sent messengers to summon them, but the couple show themselves up to the courtroom and introduced themselves as La Muerte and Xibalba. The Court tells them that they qualify for the God Couple trope, due to the fact that they are two deities married to each other and are still going strong despite their differences. They accept their newfound position and settled in the sub-Houses of Divinity and Couples Archetypes.
  • Speaking of Hector, he at first thought they run his homeworld's Land of the Dead. They told him that is sadly not the case, but they still have good relations with him as they sympathized with his former best friend KILLING HIM and stealing the credit of a song he wrote, as well as trying to reunite with his daughter, much like Manolo Sanchez's own problems with Joaquin and Maria. On another unrelated note, the three have noticed the similarities between their universes and decided they shouldn't be discussed further than that.
  • They have donated a copy of The Book of Life to the House of Knowledge, with Histoire and the Librarian acknowledging the transaction. Histoire in particular got along with the divine couple really well for guarding a big book of information much like their Herald, the Candlemaker who she got acquainted with swiftly.
  • They have quickly allied themselves with Cosmos, Eru Iluvatar and his second in command, Manwe who have congratulated them for giving the people of San Angel an edge in fighting the bandit king Chakal. They were wary of Xibalba and his previous actions, though the latter says he is trying to redeem himself from them by playing nice; La Muerte promises them he will not cheat again, considering she's his Morality Pet.
    • Of course, Melkor did not take kindly to their ascension so he threatens them by vowing to extinguish the Land of the Remembered just out of spite, which rubs them the wrong way and also shows that there are far more worse adversaries than Chakal. Lord Chaos and Garland are also villains the couple have been wary of, since Cosmos heavily implied she and Chaos were once an item and Xibalba feels conflicted from hearing about it.
    • The other Grand United Alliance Leaders are not friendly with them either. YHVH thinks the Land of the Remembered does not deserve times of joy, a fact La Muerte takes great offense at. Lucifer may have somewhat reasonable goals, but his penchant for anarchic chaos makes Chakal look like a wannabe. Nekron may as well top their enemies list; him wanting death and destruction makes him more dangerous than Chakal, which threatens the living and the Land of the Remembered as well. Nekron called them pathetic for giving the dead too much leeway, especially Xibalba for not being spiteful enough to go against everyone; this angered Xibalba greatly, who refutes that despite his abrasiveness towards everyone, he wouldn't stoop too low to the point of raising the dead because he has someone he cares about. Nekron then leaves disgusted at them, angered at their moral upstanding.
  • The couple have a better time with Retsu Unohana than with Nurgle. That's because Retsu cares about everyone and their safety while Nurgle thinks so, but does not realize his actions are more harmful to others. Nurgle thinks he could be best buds with Xibalba, but the latter wants nothing to do with him.
    Xibalba: Yeah, sorry buddy. I can't hang out with you, I must uh... feed my snake.
    • They cannot agree with SCP-049 and his perspective on "curing" the living. That would mean far too many needless deaths entering the Lands of the Remembered and Forgotten. Xibalba is offended that someone else with the Touch of Death never thinks about what their powers can actually do to innocents. They are also enemies with Malthael, a Fallen Angel that has powers over death and seeks to purge all living beings corrupted by demons who sees the couple as demonic.
  • Being a divine couple, they have gotten along with other couples. They see a lot of themselves in Gomez & Morticia Addams and Hades & Persephone, who welcome them warmly in their respective temples anytime. They were surprised that Kouta Kazuraba & Mai Takatsukasa were once human, and Kouta does more Divine Intervention than Mai who must always look after Planet Helheim. They were also surprised that Zen, a divine being and Rei, a human can actually get together. Princess Cadance & Shining Armor have also congratulated them (Cadance especially) on maintaining their happy marriage.
    • Zeus and Hera never had the best marriage, which disappointed La Muerte and Xibalba. Doesn't help that Zeus constantly cheated on her with other goddesses (and mortals) and Hera commends them for having a happier marriage despite giving said goddesses (and mortals) punishments for getting close to him, something even La Muerte finds too much. The other Hades is someone they're enemies with, since he tarnishes their good friend's name. Considering what they are capable of, he is treading caution while still finding a way to taunt them good.
    • Aphrodite thought Xibalba would be to willing cheat on La Muerte, but the truth couldn't be more farther than that as they love each other too deeply. This relieved her greatly and she wishes them the best, which they accept more than they do with Hera's praise. They have heard of Ato-ko Shirogane and her shtick of destroying relationships and already, they are more than happy to punish her should she do the same to them. Ato-ko herself wouldn't dare to ruin their marriage, considering that they are deities and their devotion is too strong to be broken.
    • They feel conflicted over the fact that a villainous couple like Medea & Souichirou Kuzuki could be happy together. Sure, their marriage is something they can respect, but both are willing to do bad things nonetheless. Trip & Grace feel insecure and are in denial over the fact that two deities are happier being together than they are; the divine couple tries to give them marriage advice, but they are too adamant and refuses to even listen to them.
  • Given that the Land of the Remembered needs everyone remembering their loved ones, La Muerte has befriended Mithra for managing the faith for the Trope Pantheons. Asura also got acquainted with her, finding her not as bad as the other gods he met in his adventure. He and Mithra are still intimidated by Xibalba and are wary of him, despite the latter being harmless.
  • They are very impressed with The Nephalem's exploits of defeating Diablo just by not being included in their prophecy. It helps that their heroic roles are just like Manolo's, though La Muerte granted Manolo the power to be Immune to Fate while The Nephalem were already granted said power from the start.
  • Since they love making bets a lot which gives them ups and downs (severity depends on their actions), they are seeking Tsunade and Marge Simpson for counseling on reducing this behaviour. Though half the time, Tsunade often ended up enabling said behaviour instead, causing Marge to Face Palm. Tsunade does note that she and La Muerte have something in common. For Marge, she at least finds solace over the fact that they are Good Parents towards their children, even if one of them (Sartana) ended up being a bad guy. Given the bad experiences of Xibalba cheating during bets, Bandit Keith is someone they consider a bad example of, even moreso than Xibalba. Keith is staying far away from them, lest he makes a bet with them and not holding up his promises like he usually do.
  • Lord English and Doc Scratch are arguably worse than Nekron in terms of wanting destruction and the couple are making preparations should their plan nearly comes to fruition again. There's also Zanza, who wants to recreate the world as he sees fit after destroying it and Yuki Terumi, whose countless atrocities involve inflicting despair and provoking weapons of mass destruction just to get back at the creator goddess that has forsaken him. Misanthropes like Shinobu Sensui and Lysandre are also enemies to look out for considering like them, Chakal hates his fellow humans too. All of them see La Muerte and Xibalba as greater obstacles to overcome so that they can achieve their goals for the end of the world.
  • They have met Madoka Kaname and find her a really sweet girl who only wants what was best for everyone. Her friend, Homura Akemi is a bit different; sure Homura's pain of wanting to see her friend again is understandable, but she also depowered said friend just so she does not lose her. La Muerte is more willing to hear her out (despite Homura not wanting to talk about it), knowing that Homura is suffering as much as everyone she has wronged while Xibalba sees it as an injustice, vowing to end Homura for good should she pull another stunt like that.
  • The Land of the Forgotten is where the dead go whenever nobody ever remember them. However, the couple has never heard of someone being instantly erased from existence; that someone is Xion. They have met her and were saddened of her fate in the mortal world. Xion also has warned them about Master Xehanort and his plans to kidnap the princesses and other girls with similar auras for his grand master plan against the entire Pantheons, which they agree to keep in mind. They then bet each other that either one of them will ruin one of Xehanort's plans.
  • They have met Dizzy, who's also a sweetheart like Madoka. Xibalba is fascinated by her black wing, Necro though he assures her that he just find him cool-looking and not provoking him until he's out of control. SCP-1440 does not like them, since he mostly stay away from death entities after escaping death, despite the couple actually pitying his state.
  • Apparently according to their creator, they along with La Muerte's sister, La Noche and her husband, El Chamuco make bets all the time, which ended up causing every single event known in human history. Because of this, all deities (even the real ones who are still living) are now wary of them and Marge has more reasons to be exasperated at them.
  • Exclusive to La Muerte:
    • La Muerte has gotten along with other benevolent goddesses and queens like Palutena and Princess Celestia. She finds a lot of common ground with Palutena and even joins her for tea talking about their favourite people. Princess Celestia is happy that La Muerte is living proof that death is not always a bad thing.
    • She rules the Land of the Remembered, an afterlife where the dead go and stay forever as long as there is people alive to remember them. Since she shows that the afterlife is a fun place, she gets along with the good-aligned deities in the sub-house of Afterlife Entities. Her opinion on the evil ones are obvious. There is also Lord Death, who La Muerte once serve as his follower. Lord Death is ecstatic that a fellow friendly reaper is here and together, they help spread the idea that death is not something to fear.
    • She has also befriended fellow All Loving Heroes Yusuke Godai, Rushuna Tendou and Fluttershy. She is glad that Yusuke and Rushuna are fighting for everyone's happiness and Fluttershy was initially almost intimidated by her appearance, but is relieved once she find La Muerte to be quite friendly and also have met Princess Celestia.
  • Exclusive to Xibalba:
    • Finds a lot of common ground with Discord, who finds him a jolly good fellow to have fun with. It helps that they are reforming, though Celestia, La Muerte and Fluttershy are making sure that they still do so. Also got along with fellow Trickster God Loki, who also reformed though even Xibalba is making sure to be wary of his motives time and time again.
    • Has joined Death from Regular Show, Grim and Charon for their own games of poker. Xibalba feels bad about Grim's predicament of having to be the best friend of two kids (doesn't help that one is incredibly stupid and the other is scarily bossy, even for a child) and Charon being Sadly Mythtaken just like his superior, Hades. The three find him a not really bad guy, though they promise to La Muerte that his cheating habits will be punished more often than not, given they too value upholding bargains.
    • Under supervision of Dizzy's father Sol Badguy who helps other people who did bad things repent for their actions. It also helps (and is often irking) they have another thing in common.

  • Pities: Captain Martin Walker (Kiritsugu)
  • For the longest time, Kiritsugu Emiya have been killing mages left and right even before the start of the 4th Holy Grail War. That is until he is hired by the Einzberns to protect Irisviel, a homunculus who is groomed to be the vessel of the Holy Grail. She was also allowed to give birth, which sired Illyasviel. During their time together, they fall in love and their dynamic is exemplary; she comforts him when he's at his most broken. Needless to say, this doesn't last long as Iri got kidnapped by Kotomine and strangled to death by him when she told him about Kiritsugu's wish; after she fused with the Grail, Kiritsugu had to destroy dark constructs of her and Illya made by the corrupted Grail, breaking him even further. Their tragic story earns them their title to the Trope Pantheons.
    • Kiritsugu ascended first as the God of Pragmatic Heroes which he finds to be rather ironic, having openly criticized the Throne of Heroes for taking glory in war and finding himself in a literal Pantheon of Heroes. He's okay with his title... then he got lonely without Irisviel around. He could have spent time with Shirou and Illya but they have their own friends to hang out with, so he decided to change his title. The Court of the Gods found out his compatibility with Irisviel is unmatched compared to other couples with a similar dynamic; knowing he will not let a happier couple get in but at the same time saving them from the harsh world that awaits them, Kiritsugu accepts the change. With that finalized, at long last he has reunited with the love of his life, Irisviel von Einzbern.
  • Applies to both of them:
    • The first thing the couple did is to see their daughter Illyasviel once again. Illya is super happy that her father got her mother in the Pantheons and the three hugged each other as they cherish their new reunion. Shirou also happens to be there, and was surprised and happy to see his father once again. Kiritsugu is so proud of his growth, even commending him for throwing away his ideals to save Sakura (well, they are kind of unhealthy anyway). Irisviel took a liking to Shirou and proclaims herself his new mother figure; Shirou never had a proper mother figure since losing his birth parents in the Fuyuki Fire, so he's ecstatic to bond with her. Of course, she will not bring up her other self's tendency to sell off pictures of him to potential suitors...
      • They then meet Heracles, who has been taking care of Illya since she summoned him. Luckily, he was not a Berserker at the time so he's lucid enough to speak; anyway, the couple felt grateful for him to take care of Illya when they left her behind long ago to which Heracles accepted humbly since he's a hero and heroes got to take care of every children they were entrusted to. They were shocked and saddened that he was forced to kill his wife and child in a fit of blind rage, not unlike Kiritsugu who had to kill dark copies of his wife and child that nonetheless still psychologically broke him while Heracles understand why Illya's parents left her at the Einzbern manor. After all of this, they trust him enough to protect Illya and he too protects them by extension.
      • They are aware of Archer's real identity and Kiritsugu always made sure that he gave him a sad, but understanding smile on him. Irisviel can't help but feel somewhat uneasy towards him; not because she distrusts him, but she feels a great burden in his heart...
      • They are surprised that there's an Illya who actually lived a good life they wanted her to have. The young magical girl at first thought her parents are finally here, but then her original self told her that's not the case; Iri still took a liking to the more innocent Illya and Kiritsugu is blessed that he basically has two daughters now, even if they share the same name. They felt bad for Miyu Edelfelt, whose Kiritsugu is a more heartless man and never cared for her, to which the real Kiritsugu called him a failure of a father and resolves to be better at taking care of Miyu. As for Chloe, well... they do value her, but she has done very naughty things that they would consider un-childlike. Chloe is a little scared of them; sure they are nice to her, but she had bad memories of the other Iri kicking her ass like she's another mook for trying to kiss her while Kiritsugu has enough means to put her down lethally with his Anti-Magic Origin Bullets and a ruthless resolve to assassinate. She could nothing but shudder at their mere presences.
      • Taiga is ecstatic to see the two again for different reasons. She's got a Precocious Crush on Kiritsugu when she was younger and she met Irisviel after the latter pulled her in for the Einzbern Consultation Room gags. Kiritsugu entrusts her to keep taking care of Shirou while Iri is glad that Taiga got her out of Angra Mainyu's possession.
      • Their reunion with Saber is both conflicting for Kiritsugu and heartwarming for Irisviel. On one hand, Saber gets along well with Iri, even having fitting dynamics with her. On the other, Kiritsugu got along the least with Saber because back then, their philosophies clash greatly with Saber harboring disgust over his dishonorable actions and lack of decency despite no longer caring about him forcing her to destroy the grail while Kiritsugu considers her someone who is too bound by a romanticized view of war and chivalry to amount to much good in the world. Of course, Kiritsugu has long since been inactive in his assassination business (Maiya's not pushing it either, surprisingly) and he has entrusted his hidden ideals to Shirou entirely, so their hostilities has since reduced quite fairly; he and Irisviel are surprised that Saber and Shirou are romantically close, but they are not complaining since the two have been through a lot and they deserve some happiness after all that. Since their bitter opinions of each other crops up every now and again, their teamwork will be a last resort should everything go down the drain fast enough.
      • They both were alarmed of Saber Alter's existence, since she's basically Saber corrupted by the Greater Grail's black mud and under Angra Mainyu's control, which horrified Irisviel and unsettles Kiritsugu. Even worse is that she turned her back on her ideals, giving her a tyrant-like mentality and made her methods like Kiritsugu's. Saber Alter expresses that she now sees Kiritsugu's point of his cynicism, but since she was once the Artoria Pendragon that served him, her grudge against him didn't go anywhere; in fact it has grown a lot worse since she's now even angrier at him. Irisviel felt another of her worst nightmares have been realized upon just seeing Saber Alter, who she sees as very naive and said to her the following:
      Saber Alter: I have seen far worse, Irisviel. It is better if you have not experienced all of the world's evil...
      • They were surprised to find Tokiomi's daughters being alive and well. Rin and Sakura have finally met the adoptive father of Shirou and... were surprised to see him subdued in spite of his "Magus Killer" reputation. He's fine with them being with Shirou as long as Shirou makes them happy, but he's stopping himself from telling them everything about their family because he feels they don't have the mental fortitude to take it all in.
    • Kiritsugu feels he is not fit to be a "Hero of Justice" due to not only everything that has happened to him, but his morally bankrupt actions already stripped away his rights to be one. That's why he's fine with entrusting his ideals to someone who has the powers to do so, like to Shirou as well as Sieg, Jeanne d'Arc and Siegfried and said they could do a better job than him. The three were conflicted over his actions but nonetheless still determine to be better than Kiritsugu and Jeanne hopes he may find happiness with his family in the Pantheons. Jeanne also feel obligated to protect Irisviel since the latter is a conduit of the Holy Grail; Irisviel is flattered nonetheless and they hanged out over tea with Saber every once in a while.
      • He also considers Raiden, Optimus Prime and Yuji Sakai to be better "Heroes of Justice" than him. He sympathizes with Raiden after hearing about his past as a Child Soldier, and having experienced what war can do to a person and with Yuji after hearing that he is trying to end a war that has lasted for millennia and the war would eventually end humanity. Optimus shares Jeanne's opinion that Kiritsugu may not take back what he did, but at least he felt remorse for them and hopes he finds happiness again.
    • Kiritsugu and Irisviel may had gone through a horrible war, but they had never thought a war between dimensions can break out badly. Yuya Sakaki, Yuzu Hiiragi and their counterparts filled in on their experiences to them and all they could express is sympathy and horror, especially that Yuya and his counterparts are reincarnations of Z-ARC; Kiritsugu expressed he would have killed one of them if he was there, but today he wouldn't want to consider that. He and Iri got along with Yuto and Ruri Kurosaki the best since they get the worst brunt of the war by the Fusion Dimension's invasion of their Heartland and they see themselves in the kids while Yuto finds Kiritsugu to be like his friend Shun, only more extreme and brutal while they oppose Yuri who revel in the war's chaos and everyone's suffering, which Yuri feels no need to refute despite turning good at the end.
    • The couple felt bad for Homura since she and Kiritsugu would do anything for the women they love, even relating their extreme methods to one another; she confided in them because they were kind to her and Kiritsugu considers her a mini-him. Irisviel wanted to console her so badly, but Homura refuses to ever talk about her regrets and feels she deserve the bad reputation she was given, further saddening the three.
    • Master Chief has some rocky relations with Kiritsugu; the Chief is a lawful soldier that follows orders and pushes himself to do what's right and not what's easy while Kiritsugu would do whatever it takes to get the job done and honor just doesn't factor into that equation. They have gotten a bit better when Kiritsugu said he does regret his actions later to the point he quitted after saving Shirou; at least they sound like each other which they decide is something they could exploit soon and agreed that War Is Hell. While the Chief would definitely like to see Kiritsugu use his methods against the Covenant, he's not so sure he could see him go against Insurrectionists.
      • The Chief was once Homura's guardian, but then tensions built up regarding the morality of her actions and they ended up becoming distant towards each other. Due to this turn of events, Homura now turn to Kiritsugu and Irisviel for more moral support; this also contested the Chief's and Kiritsugu's partnership and who knows how long it will end badly as well.
    • Oriko found Kiritsugu to be a bit terrifying at first due to his Magus Killer reputation, not helping matters that Homura Akemi was said to resemble him, but she later was told that Kiritsugu had a certain characteristic that Homura didn't have. She liked him a bit better because of this, though he commented that "her heart was in the right place, but she escalated her actions too quickly." Meanwhile, Irisviel did pity her due to her backstory and resulting actions that spiraled from it, though she found her murder of Madoka Kaname a bit too far, not helping that she unwittingly doomed Mitakihara City due to no one able to stop Walpurgisnacht, which reminded them of the unfortunate results of the 4th Holy Grail War.
    • Because his cynicism rubs idealists the wrong way, Kiritsugu had friction among most heroic Kamen Riders since they largely fight for the sight of good. The compassionate ones do feel bad for his tragedy while the righteous ones feel uneasy towards him for his actions. Kiritsugu for his part tries not to cross their paths too much while Irisviel largely defends her husband like a good wife would.
      • There are two Riders he did got along with; Takatora Kureshima and Hiiro Kagami. Takatora felt bad for the couple and is willing to understand Kiritsugu crossing his lines while Hiiro sympathized with losing a loved one before your eyes and saw a lot of Saki in Irisviel. Taylor Herbert, who shares the same sub-house with Takatora also gained the couple's sympathy since she's just a young kid when she's Forced into Evil; Taylor herself is glad there are adults she can trust, though she does find Kiritsugu's past disagreeable.
    • Griffin feels bad for the couple because they were stuck in a hopeless war where death is inevitable and tragedy strikes at anytime. Even in a timeline where they slain the rest of Einzbern household and getting Illya safe, there is still bound to have death and tragedy. The couple didn't disagree either with Kiritsugu stating, "Even if I have the choice to turn back time, I wouldn't have changed anything. People will die regardless and I can't change that." Relatedly, Iri is amazed that Griffin can see possible timelines, which is not that different from Iri keeping memories of other Grail Wars due to being a vessel of the Holy Grail.
    • Kiritsugu and Iri have found out that there were couples who also had an ordeal like theirs. Zero and Gunvolt found a lot in common with Kiritsugu, being former cold-hearted hunters who found someone that gave them emotional security and they also took a liking to Iri, who's sad that they lost their beloved tragically not unlike her husband losing her. Joule is still alive, but she has fused with GV who refused to see her as the same person; so Quinn is helping to fix that by being saved. The thing is, Joule became a new person entirely with no past memory and GV decided to give her a new life she deserves by keeping her out of his life, even if it breaks his heart. Hearing of this, Iri took GV and hugged him to comfort him and told him he's never alone anymore.
      • As for Zero's situation, the similarly named Iris, perished after being defeated while having her brother's powers, though afterwards she's alive and well in the Pantheons; she and Zero had enough heartbreak to go through but fortunately they remain amicable and Iri wished the best for each of their happiness.
      • They had a double date with Squall and Rinoa since like Raiden, Squall was a Child Soldier going through harsh training while Rinoa is a kind general's daughter. Likewise in another instance, Cloud and Tifa are Childhood Friends who also had the same dynamic with Tifa giving Cloud his emotional needs. The four were saddened that the married couple did not last very long to the end, though Kiritsugu and Irisviel assures them that it's all good now that they are in the Pantheons.
    • The couple are not happy that Kirei Kotomine and his Servant, Gilgamesh is in the Pantheons. Their reasons are understandable; Kotomine kidnapped Irisviel and strangled her to death once she expressed Kiritsugu's wish and Kiritsugu not only will never forgive him for that, but also starting the Fuyuki Fire that took away Shirou's parents and Gilgamesh enabled that behaviour, making him just as gulity. The two have been preparing for a rematch in spite of the Holy Grail War being over, yet the bad blood between them will never be truly quiet and Irisviel will NOT stop her husband for that; Saber agrees to keep Gil out of the picture should that happens.
      • They also hate Zouken Matou for torturing Sakura to the point of her not being able to be happy and Kiritsugu called it a mistake for Tokiomi to trust him. Araya Souren is also on their hit list since he's an accomplice to Kotomine by providing him shelter in his temple (an apartment complex). Kiritsugu and Maiya are looking to destroy the temple, but Araya has anticipated this however, and has erected new barriers to counter the origin bullet.
    • Ever since hearing all about Kiritsugu and how he suffers so beautifully as he's forced to lose everything he loves due to his ideals from Kotomine, Melkor is deliberately going out of his way to torment him even further with his forces of the GUAE. Yuki Terumi, Junko Enoshima, Evolt and The Joker are also following suit to ensure Kiritsugu never moves on from his despair, which he despises them for doing and considers them lower than the Mage's Association. Esdeath might top them in the sadistic department and Kiritsugu is willing to work with Night Raid in order to stop her.
      • Handsome Jack is also someone he and Iri agree to be very deplorable, not because of his pettiness, but he did monstrous actions in the name of good and that he used to be a legitimate hero which makes him an Evil Counterpart of sorts to Kiritsugu. Even worse is he murdered his own wife and abuses his daughter Angel to fuel Eridium into a Vault Key, further cementing their intense hatred towards him. Jack has a twisted respect towards Kiritsugu which he considers killing mages in cold blood to be heroic yet still considers him and Iri to be no better than Pandora's bandits, which the couple take great offense to.
    • Since he sees war as something to profit from, the couple hates Sundowner for doing so. They also hate Monsoon and his nihilistic philosophy where memes spread among people and cause great discord which they greatly disagree given their idealism. The Millennium Organization also earned their scorn due to the Major enjoying war and his subordinates are enjoying every second of everyone getting caught in the crossfire.
    • Father Homunculus has earned scorn from Kiritsugu and Irisviel due to being an evil homunculus and planning to sacrifice a lot of human souls to fuel his malevolent ends, and Illya pointed out his Philosopher's Stone is just like the Holy Grail which makes him no better than the mages of their world. Yaldabaoth is a Holy Grail himself albeit a fake one and the couple are now wary of him and his plans thanks to Saber's warnings. Master Xehanort finds Irisviel to be useful in his plans despite her not being a Princess of Heart, since he can achieve so much with the Holy Grail; Iri is alarmed and Kiritsugu angrily points a gun at him telling him to back off. Xehanort is biding his time to find a good opportunity to fit Iri into his plans.
    • Evil parents like Relius, Ghetsis, Hojo, Banno, Ragyo, Dr. Drevis and Dr. Lamb as well as the Child Abuse Supporters are instantly on their shitlist since they would never do that to Illya and consider them lower than Zouken. It's bad enough that Kiritsugu is considering coming out of retirement just to kill these sons of beyotches, though luckily his other allies will take care of that for him.
  • Exclusive to Kiritsugu:
    • Being a Vigilante Man, he's also close to Jack Bauer due to kind of similar method in dealing with what he considered evil, and he likes one of his theme songs. For that friendship, Jack has shared some knowledge with Kiritsugu, in particular his interrogation technique. Garrus Vakarian and The Punisher also got along with Kiritsugu for taking matters into their own hands and they are willing to take over his job of killing heartless magi when Kiritsugu expressed he's done killing anyone anymore.
    • Is considered the bane of MANY Gods and Goddesses in the House of Magic, even by Homura. None dared tried to piss him off or get on his bad side. When asked why, most followers would reply with, "Does the term Magus Killer ring a bell to you?" Kroak does, however, approve of him and his philosophy and Kiritsugu returns that respect with a quiet smile on his face. He and Touma also formed a Mage Killer duo and every magic user are now scared shitless of them.
    • Like with Saber, he's gotten bad blood with Diarmuid Ua Duibhne (since he never got to say that to him when he was around). He considered the hatred he got from them to be a natural reaction; they're never going to get along like water and oil since he killed Diarmuid's Master right in front of him.
    • Thanks to his skill as a 'Magus Killer', he was eventually befriended by Tavish DeGroot since the Demoman has a large amount of hate towards the House of Magic, mostly the evil ones. Because of this, both of them do normal hunts for evil deities within the house. Ironically though, Kiritsugu didn't want to befriend him since he may get into Artoria's bad side. He still became friends nonetheless.
      • However, at one point, Gul'dan's ascension in the House caused both of them to hunt the Darkness Incarnate. The damage around the house was catastrophic, and even destroyed half of the house itself. This became the last straw for Saber and decided to place the Demoman in her Teeth-Clenched Teamwork list, with him being the THE 2ND LAST RESORT she will work with. This got both of them disappointed but still tolerable to each other. Irisviel heard about of this from Saber and forbids her husband from going out for three weeks due to that incident.
    • He was seen drinking with Spike Spiegel and Shinya Kogami and some onlookers thought three of the same people were there due to having similar looks. Spike actually relate to Kiritsugu in losing someone they loved and some gods have actually thought of a line by the words of "See ya, Magus Killer", but they pay no mind to that. Kogami also relates to Kiritsugu in the vigilante department and they made a partnership by meeting in secret since Kogami is on the run in his world.
    • The Magus Killer is the confidant of Commander Farsight and is willing to understand his reasons for his Zero Approval Gambits. Farsight understands Kiritsugu is not willing to kill anymore and also fills in for him in taking care of Homura despite not agreeing with Homura's methods in protecting Madoka.
    • Maiev Shadowsong, who also hates mages partnered with Kiritsugu in hunting Gul'dan and other mages and fills in for Maiya should she be out of comission for a while. Illidan Stormrage calls it a shame because he sees a lot of himself in Kiritsugu and now that he partenered with someone who wants to kill him, he will not be nice to the Magus Killer.
    • As a man who has seen through the hells of war, he felt bad for Martin Walker, and they often sharing stories on how hellish war is and how people should avoid it at all cost. Walker is a bit stunned with Kiritsugu's extreme pragmatism, though, to the point of comparing himself to him of his bloodthirsty part, though Kiritsugu has said he has quitted his hunting long ago. The Magus Killer hopes the unstable captain get some help, or else he will raze another city like what he did in Dubai.
    • There is a possibilty where Kiritsugu became a Counter Guardian should he not be hired by the Einzberns and thus didn't meet Irisviel, making him even more depressed than his regular counterpart. When Iri told him about this, all Kiritsugu could do was sigh.
      Kiritsugu: *sighs* It's better to have a family than not having one at all...
  • Exclusive to Irisviel:
    • Irisviel thinks Illya has her father's eyes even though Illya is technically a duplicate of her. Kiritsugu just plays along to have fun with her.
      • This actually got her pretty well with Steven Universe, who took after his mother a lot more than he did with his father. It helps that he's a sweet boy, willing to befriend both Illyas.
    • She looks really young enough to be passed off as Illya's sister, which makes her friends with Sanae Furukawa and Yoriko Yasaka. Iri enjoys Sanae's pastry and even bought some for her family while Yoriko finds herself another youngin' to look after since in homunculus years, Iri is quite young.
    • As an ingenue with so much more to learn, Irisviel got along well with Yutaka and Ventus. Ventus, having more experience in his adventures finds himself teaching them a lot of stuff; tiring, maybe but at least it's worth it. Amy Rose also befriended Iri because they both see a lot of good in people and provided morality to former cold-hearted people; it helps that Saber introduces Amy to Iri.
    • Asia Argento got along with Irisviel since they both are sweet people to talk to and they have healing powers to boot; Iri was saddened that Asia's church disowned her when they found out about her being a former devil, though Asia assures her she's okay now that Issei is taking care of her. Mai Takatsukasa also relates to Iri in having to embody a powerful object, often unwillingly. Mai is sad that Iri did not live long enough to see her daughter again, though in her eyes Iri is glad that in two timelines, Illya will finally have the good life she deserves.
      • Speaking of healers, Dr. Ziegler befriended Iri at Sanae's bakery and was surprised that they sound alike. Iri is amazed of what Mercy has accomplished while Mercy is saddened that her homunculus lifespan is so short though Iri said that's what makes her life so meaningful; with a short life, you can get everything you want quickly and cherish it forever once it ends. Mercy knows it's inevitable so once Iri finally passes in peace, she vows to be there to see her go.
    • Irisviel can drive, it's just that she doesn't care about traffic cues; that's because she has spent so long driving around her estate that she finds it exhilarating to go nuts elsewhere. This has her gotten along with Yukari Tanizaki, who is arguably worse than her when it comes to driving. At least Iri is aware that Ms. Tanizaki does go too far...
      • Shiki Ryougi remarked that she's basically the opposite of her husband, Mikiya Kokutou when it comes to driving; Iri drives recklessly with no regards to traffic safety while Mikiya drives safely like a normal person and considers traffic safety (which actually irritates Shiki).

    Kraft Lawrence and Holo 
Kraft Lawrence and Holo the Wise Wolf, Patron Couple of Divergent Lifespan Lovers (Holo: Horo, the Harvest Goddess, the Wise Wolf of Yoitsu)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5a6e89a6e68ebec5f496e234594a9702.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess (Holo) and Quasideity (Lawrence)
  • Symbol: A bag of wheat.
  • Theme Song: Tabi no Tochuu
  • Alignments: Neutral Good for Lawrence while Chaotic Good for Holo.
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Love, Life And Death, Commerce, Travel, Marriage
  • Allies:
  • Business Partners with: Most merchants and traders (with some exceptions), like The Merchant, The Cabbage Merchant
  • Avoids: Morris (for Lawrence)
  • Enemies: Reynard the Fox, SCP-953, Millenium, Ryuk
  • Conflicting Opinion: Most furries, The Abyss Watchers, The God-Emperor of Mankind
  • Economics in general is a mixed bag. Trading, distribution and even consumption are often varied from time to time, sometimes it gives way to success and other times it won't. Of all those whose lives changed thanks to it, was Kraft Lawrence, a travelling merchant delivering and trading various goods of different companies. His luck changed when he met a certain wolf spirit, by the name of Holo. She was a religious icon of a group and after meeting Lawrence and converting her town to a new religion joined with him with the purpose of visiting her hometown, Yoitsu. After travelling around the province, interacting with numerous people and recalling her memories, she has not only grown fond of Lawrence but would focus on their relationship, to the point of recognizing his short lifespan as a human, thus making her decision to marry Lawrence to enjoy their lives together before his inevitable death.
  • One point in their world, while Lawrence was doing his trading profession, he was struck with a bright white light that blinded him. After it disappeared, he saw what seems to be a courtroom, with people left and right minding their business. There, he questioned the man in the center of all of them until he was told to sit down. There, the committee reviewed his case and much decision-making later, he was given the rite of ascension, with him was the cart, and of all that popped up after the guards carried it back to Lawrence was Holo, taking a nap on it. The rite wasn't just meant for him, it was for the both, as their developed relationship and Holo's decision to marry him is what landed both into the Pantheon, a decision both slowly welcomed.
  • Even after their ascension, the duo often leaves the Pantheon in search of new business trades. Lawrence insisted in doing so to earn a lot considering they can go to different worlds, that was until the House of Commerce presented themselves to the duo, promising them good fortune, and perhaps more spices to try out. Eager on this offer, Lawrence accepted it wholeheartedly, believing a new source of income inside Pantheon grounds and meeting new business partners, some good and some... not so much.
  • An interesting thing to note is that Holo isn't a fox, she would like to iterate being a wolf and human at most cases. Many people as a result mistake her for the former considering her looks until she decided to reveal her true form, allowing her correction to be noted. Some fox deities have talked to her though and she relates to them and in other times, enjoys their company outside of fellow wolves.
    • It should also be noted that she has a hatred of being called a goddess. Her being called an Intermediate Goddess annoyed her the first time she was given a rank, though some deities would like to point out that she does indeed qualify as such with some of her powers as well as being a agriculture goddess being proof of her godhood. This only annoyed her further and has not spoken about it, but if pushed and pressed about it, she somewhat agrees with the statements, which is something she cannot deny about.
  • On the topic of economics, the duo will often engage towards economics considering most of their life has revolved on it due to Lawrence's profession. Thanks to this, Holo not only learned of such, but managed to use her powers as the Harvest Goddess to manipulate and fix certain goods like crops and vegetables, though she only does this when doing so, or when it benefits him to some degree.
    • This led to her first meeting with the Farmer, who asked if he could gather some assistance with his crops, to which she helped in most seasons. However, she did at one point, stop and let some of his crops die during the winter season, as she states that not all things are meant to prosper, and some harvests cannot be gained at certain seasons. This lesson was something he took note of.
  • Wolf-based deities are welcome for her as she has been hopeful to meet some of her kind, something she has been wanting considering Yoitsu, her hometown was destroyed for a long time. Her reactions to most of them have been pleasant as they can understand where she comes from.
    • For Moro, it seems she is partially in agreement with her, as both are wolves with powers akin to gods. The white wolf however notes how Holo isn't a "pure" wolf, but mostly a hybrid considering her ability to shift between her massive wolf form and her regular human form which she uses most of the time. Considering her bond towards humans, she believes that she might be the key for both goddesses and humans to coexist, even as a different species.
    • She would also pity the story of Great Grey Wolf Sif, a great wolf who devoted her life serving the master that tamed her, who also visited their home after Sif told them of their tales and themes. She was seen crying hearing the Great wolf’s eventual fate as well as her master Artorias, after which he saw Holo as a possible companion with her. On the other hand, Lawrence is intrigued by the greatsword she carries through her mouth, as her form of combat was based on it and not by eating, as the Wise Wolf has done in the past.
    • Her romantic tale with a fellow human also sparked conversations with both Bigby Wolf as the two have also entered through their ordeals, with Bigby's protectiveness towards Snow White like her case with Lawrence and Yomi as a kitsune related with him. She was at first shocked hearing that he was the Fables' Big Bad Wolf but ever since he's been changing it to improve his reputation, she was proud to hear his progress, that and him and Snow White has lots of children whereas the duo has one child.
    • Being a human/wolf goddess hybrid would eventually make her meet people who are similar, either a Kumiho or a Kitsune as her similarities of hers with said species are not far-fetched. Which would come eventually with meeting 3 of such, 1 being the kitsune Yomi and 2 who are Kumihos Ahri and SCP-953. On one hand, her similarities with the three would make all of them interact with each other, on the other, only Yomi seems to be the one she befriends with due to their relationships between humans and wolves being similar and possibly Ahri as the two can be lighthearted at times, except when it comes to the latter trying to charm Lawrence, which is something she will never hesitate eating the transgressor. As for SCP-953, let's just say her disgust on her being a picky eater (and a terrifying one at that) prevented the two to interact ever.
    • The couple also managed to meet Hana and the Wolf-Man, who also happened to be a human/wolf-person couple like them. Both couples were quite surprised at the similarities, but became closse confidants because of their similarities. Kraft and Holo were quite saddened by the Wolf-Man's unfortunate fate, but were proud of Hana's dedication to raising her children to the best of her ability.
    • As her day was about to get better, her visit with Amaterasu sparked joy inside her as she has met someone very close to her in both godhood and wolf-like characteristics. The Goddess of the Sun has blessed both her and Lawrence including their child to have a good life and the Wise Wolf would say the same thing to her son Chibiterasu who she finds to be super adorable.
  • Following her successful marriage with Lawrence and the birth of their child Myuri would soon lead to both Naruto Uzumaki and his wife Hinata to visit them as they get to watch their children follow their own adventures whilst they live their lives as parents. When asked if being couple was a hassle, Lawrence would give out some thoughts of being both a merchant and a father to a goddess while Holo would smile all the way of recognizing their love for each other a bond that the four have gone through to earn it.
  • As the Harvest Goddess, she has a few crops she likes but of most of the ones she likes, it would be apples. So much that she would easily win in eating as many apples as possible. Hearing this, a shinigami decided to take some of the apples from her storage and horrified of this backed him off the moment he tried getting at least one. Unfortunately, this shinigami, Ryuk, has no idea what barter trade was, so his response was repeated stealing, of which he would get subsequent steals but was ultimately warded off the moment Lawrence grabbed a few wards. He still tries to steal some apples from her with limited success.
  • Granted she may be a wolf but that has not stopped certain fox deities meeting with the Harvest Goddess eager hearing some wisdom and thoughts on her. First to approach was the cunning Mr. Fox who at first was met with harsh criticism for stealing food until she heard why he had done it in the first place to feed his family. In all fairness, said farmers are cruel in the first place and he is still stealing food but from amoral people, as she can attest meeting with thugs, henchmen and even treacherous merchants. She is willing to grow some crops for him, but he declined as he's rather content to what he has. Meanwhile his meeting with Nick Wilde shows how the past matters to some extent, with her memories and Nick's trauma being all too similar. Thankfully both have moved on and have lived out successful lives at the end.
    • Such day would be spoiled following the meeting with a certain Reynard the Fox, claiming to be a genuinely good person, when in fact he's a trickster who has a terrible reputation of all the crimes he has done on his world, that and his attempts to steal some of their fortune only angered her further and decided to show him her fury by attempting to eat him whole, which failed despite her initial efforts. She has banned him from ever getting close to their temple or get risked to being eaten, to which replied to "having fun angering a goddess around". It wasn't also better hearing a Nazi Organization also has a werewolf under their belt, and that he is arguably more powerful than her, in terms of raw strength, speed and agility. She has learned to avoid him but considering he has his sights on her, it will come a time until he starts hunting her down.
  • As it turns out Holo isn't a first timer when it comes to crossovers, even before her ascension. Hints of her earliest attempt was on a certain game where she appears as a spell spirit of the Omega Wind spell. For those wondering, this is what Holo has shown about this.
    • On the flipside, another crossover happened with her but this time, as an assist character, leading to her being their assistant when it comes to being a medic. This one she actively remembers as she is able to see some of the Pantheon members being a part of that scenario as well, that being Enju who was one of the first who greeted the duo during their return.
  • On the business side of things, Lawrence has overseen it, being the merchant who will pretty much travel a long side with a cart filled with wheat and numerous goods for barter trade. With his ascension, he has tried other packages and goods but stuff like guns and arsenals are not his thing though other goods are pretty much okay with him, just hopeful said packages do not cause a ruckus as he travels back and forth.
    • Thanks to his experience, he has been seen negotiating with a lot of traders, with Recette, Anna and even the Cabbage Merchant being regular customers. This also helps as their packages are the usual objects and goods that are not out of this world, though some argue that Recette's artifacts and some of Anna's available items do have some weird effects on the customer. Nonetheless, he'll be willing to trade with the trio at some point, with the Cabbage Merchant getting a surplus of his own product by courtesy from Holo.
    • Meanwhile, Crazy Dave sees this as one of his best opportunities. He may speak and act weird, but the travelling merchant cannot thank him enough for some of his supplies as well as his specialization of unique plants, some of which are adorable and useful. Even better is his related domains with the Goddess herself as she can help accelerate the growth of Dave's plants, making garden defense much easier. To him, both Lawrence and Holo are his best customers as not only does he help them give plants, but their trades and Holo's reputation as a Harvest Goddess makes growing plants much easier and makes zombie defense less of a hassle.
    • Even with his stance against selling guns and other weapons, the Merchant cannot help but give some offers to Lawrence out of pure interest. Even if both are merchants, he's still hesitant accepting any of his offers, seeing his looks and his said supplies being something out of his experience though when the going gets tough and he'll need more funds, he'll need his help at some point.
    • On the matter of competitive merchants and dangerous businesses, he has noted Morris to be on his blacklist simply because of him trying to scam him with his offers. He has been trying to prove that his business is not shady, but he can easily tell as his experience with rather hostile business conditions have made him less worried. Holo on the other hand has threatened eating him if he doesn't shut up and leave but he told her to stop doing such, as he doesn't to spark another conflict.
    • Outside of the Farmer, he also stumbled upon another farmer, fellow apples grower Johnny Appleseed, who was found planting a few apples into their gardan near the bathhouse. Lawrence appreciates the gesture and has promises to trade him back in return, though he also mentioned how Holo is an avid lover of apples, so when she managed to find the trees that Johnny planted, she ate them all with no sweat, leaving a smiling impression on him. In addition, the goddess decided to give blessings to most of Johnny's growths, a gift from her to him.
    • One day, his business was being reconstructed, a fellow merchant by the name of Tresssa held up her sign as if it was an advertisement in front of his property. He would ask what her interest was but she only came to announce him as if she was holding a contract offer to him, to which he comtemplated it for days. When he arrived to her temple, she was seen with other mercenaries who she hired and after seeing slowly drew his knife, at which she said she has no intention of hurting him though he retorted saying that he already has experience towards merchants with mercenaries, nearly ruining their trust. After the agreement on the contract, the two have agreed to support each other with the delivery and assessment of goods, hopefully so that neither would reach to the point of debt.
  • At some point, Van Hohenheim visited the duo to see how the two were holding up, especially following the entire successful marriage the two partook upon and the birth of their first child, but so far the two have been doing well after establishing their Spice and Wolf bathhouse. Lawrence would ask the same thing to him but he would remain silent on the matter. It wouldn't take long till he would narrate what happened to him and the rest of his relationship with the Elric family, that being that he outlived their mother (hence why he never married in the first place) and might do the same to the Elric brothers, yet at the same time would feel remorse for not being the kind and caring father he should have been. Holo would soon leave hearing this conversation, and with Lawrence following suit, the alchemist had only one thing to say to him.
    Hohenheim: May be not much to ask but, hope you can be a good father regardless of time.
  • The God Emperor's stance towards Holo has been personal, believing her to be a bastard child of Leman Russ in some feudal world, well according to some people. This news of her has left her angry and perhaps infuriated by his comments, then again, Emps has stated his opinion towards wolves being soured thanks to his Primarch's massive obsession towards said culture, to the point that it basically became their own doctrine. While she may understand why and sees it being understandable, that doesn't give the excuse of calling her a bastardized child of one his own sons. One thing the duo does agree on is their stance on godhood, to which the two would agree to stop calling them as godlike deities even if their powers are to alike to lump them into the same category.
    • Speaking of certain people upholding wolf culture, the heralds of Artorias, dubbed the Abyss Watchers have also been slowly worshiping her due to her being a wolf as well, though her size may or may not qualify as a great wolf. Sure, they venerate wolves, she has stated it is too much and that there is a thin line between worship and obsession, which ticks her off considering her stance against being considered a goddess.
  • One day, a group of certain eccentric people were seen debating in front of their temple, with her going out to see what it is the topic at hand. Said people were furries who were debating to whether she is considered as such, with some even calling her as 10% furry and others considering her to be a full-grown furry. Her comments were zero on the matter.
  • Holo: "I am not so grand, not as a god. I am Holo, and Holo is all that I am."
  • Lawrence: "I'm not sure what I did to deserve this turn of events, but I just happened to meet a strange wolf. She wants to return to the north, and I made a contract to accompany her. I cannot break that contract. I gave my word."

  • Interested In: Arturia Pendragon
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Queen Elsa
  • Ascended after the events of the Fifth Holy Grail War in 2004. Originally were torn apart but eventually found each other once again.
  • Yuno and Yukiteru were not happy about the couple taking their role as the Unholy Matrimony but the duo diary holders felt they were genuinely in love so they surrendered it.
    • They also had a nice date out with each other talking about their love lives and how they met one another getting along well.
  • Caster was more than happy to hear about Saber being in the Pantheon. As it turns out, the reason she wants to kidnap Saber is to have her wear all of the many kinds of dresses she can think of.
    • That being said, she spends an inordinate amount of time at the House of Costumes doing "research", and at the Iori Hobby Shop buying figurines and tools to practice her "dressing Saber up" skills on, much to Issei's mild annoyance.
  • Medea managed to encounter another version of herself. The alternate was glad that she was able to find someone who would give her happiness and love after a heartbreak caused by Jason. Although she disproves the fact that this version of her still lust after Saber even after got married to Kuzuki.
  • Medea does not trust any of the male gods in the Pantheon besides her former master and lover... and Iori Sei, whose shop she regularly buys from (it took her a while to get used to him — before, she insisted on buying only when Sei's mother Rinko was manning the cashier).
    • If asked, Medea vehemently denies being the modeler that inspired Sakai Minato to make the Super Fumina.
    • Ever since the incident involving Mordred interrupting Medea's figure painting in Chaldea resulting in the Knight of Treachery getting a horrible beatdown from her chichi-ue, Mordred has been bugging the Witch of Betrayal to assist in her figure making, with Mordred progressing too slowly for Medea's liking.
  • Many old faces that knew these two were shocked by their arrival in the Pantheon. Rin was prepared to fight Medea once more, Arturia refused to suffer any more torture, Rider considers the duo to be prey, Gilgamesh was ready to kill the mongrels once more, and Archer chuckled at their role as lover gods.
    • However, upon seeing that the couple arriving in the House of Love were not quite what they expected, they left the couple be, but have since kept their guards up in case Medea tries to pull something.
  • Medusa was surprised to learn about Medea's history in magic. She also had to assure her she was not like the other Medusa in the Pantheon and only wanted to learn about her craft and the Holy Grail.
  • The enemies of magic are looking to remove Medea and Kuzuki. Mard and Tirek have made their hate for the former servant clear enough. Touma Kamijou might not be as evil as Mard or Tirek but he does agree about the possible elimination of Medea and Kuzuki.
  • Hans really gets under Medea's skin, though the prince does not understand why she hates him so much. She is reminded of her past dealing with men who have told lies and tried to remove her...
  • Elsa had a strained relationship with Medea and Kuzuki. Part of her understands why they love each other along with the pain of a betrayal of that kind of love. Yet she does not fully support their actions saying they need to find redemption for their sins.
  • Being the Persona of Chidori, Medea knew the feelings her owner had for Junpei and that even if they can't be together, their feelings for each other can't be severed by anyone.
  • As far as Medea is concerned, only she gets the right to say "RULE BREAKER" (or use it).
  • Medea used to be (and actually still is) BFFs with Atalanta. Because of this, Atalanta usually tried to behave whenever Soichiro is around, and if anything she's glad that Medea found a better mate than Jason (but then again, finding someone better than him is not that hard...)

    Mister Miracle and Big Barda 
Mister Miracle and Big Barda, Divine Strong Girl, Smart Guy Pairing (Scott Free and Barda Free)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0589c8b823e717acb6b9033bd67ef7fc.jpg
Left-Big Barda, right-Mister Miracle
  • Intermediate God and Goddess
  • Symbol: The Life Equation and Mega Rod
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio(both): Our Gods Are Different, Tiny Guy, Huge Girl, Happily Married
  • Domains: Freedom, Optimism, Love, Divinity (both), Escape Artistry, The Life Equation (Mister Miracle), Warriors, Defection (Big Barda)
  • Superior: Jack Kirby
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Despite the dystopia of Apokolips and its residents seeming Always Chaotic Evil, a couple proved that even love and heroism can bloom from it. Big Barda was the original leader of the Female Furies, Miracle Miracle was the son of Highfather traded to Darkseid in a peace agreement and raised in an Orphanage of Fear. They fell in love, and ended up defecting from Darkseid's forces and becoming superheroes.
  • Their ascension did not sit well with Darkseid or the forces of Apokolips, due to two more major New Gods having risen to the pantheon to oppose him. The Love That Moves The Stars had a completely opposite opinion; He adores them for being a premiere example of how The Power of Love triumphs over evil and along with Cosmos, welcomed them with open arms.
  • Big Barda was apparently influenced by Jack Kirby's wife, which is why in the pantheon he pays special attention to her and her husband. She spends a lot of her time in the House of Combat! fighting and training, where she became a friend of Elena and Chun-Li. Scott Free is the multiverse's greatest escape artist, which makes him immune to the Anti-Life Equation. Many evil deities in the House of Mind Control grumbled at this.
  • Shockingly enough, Zamasu of all people initially acted civil on first meeting the couple. The reason for this is that they actively rebelled against an evil god's ways, and Zamasu already hates Darkseid for being an (openly) evil god, and doing it for good reasons. This almost immediately fell apart when he soon ranted about how Humans Are Bastards and his own ego, ranted that they shouldn't be hanging out with mortals, and they were disgusted by the destruction he wrought for the sake of so-called justice.
  • YHVH never even bothered with the pleasantries as while He is at least not immoral to inflict purposeful suffering, they represent freedom opposed to His dictatorial order. And as far as the couple is concerned, He is practically as bad as Darkseid. They feel the same about Palpatine and Malthael, and oppose the Divine Power's cruel ambitions for humanity.
  • Lucifer has proposed an alliance of both the two and New Genesis as a whole, because they would naturally oppose YHVH and are champions of free will and freedom, Mister Miracle literally being the god of such. They declined because they couldn't condone a number of the amoral actions Lucifer has done, though will side if it's needed to stop truly vile and powerful forces of order and chaos. Such as Yaldabaoth and Galeem or Don Thousand and Dharkon, the latter two Lucifer can't stand even if they represent chaos.
  • The God known by Bob proved much more reasonable and respectful of the couple, as did Shin. They are glad to see more benevolent and powerful New Gods ascend. Auriel ended up siding with Big Barda and Mister Miracle since she lives to preserve hope, something that puts her against Darkseid and has her agree with their own philosophy about freedom and liberty.
  • Sage Harpuia respects Big Barda for leaving the tyranny of Darkseid, as he eventually realized that Copy X was corrupt and left that dictatorship. Angel relates to her as like Big Barda, she defected for love. The two are quite well-respected by Gomez and Morticia Adams for their love. They also find themselves relating a lot to the romantic dynamic with Meryl Silverburgh and Johnny Sasaki.

  • Pities: Sasuke Uchiha (Mirai only)
  • Training Dummy for: The House of Hunters (Akihito only)
  • A half-human, half-youmu hybrid, Akihito Kanbara lived a seemingly normal life until one day when he encountered mysterious girl named Mirai Kuriyama standing on top of the roof of his school roof. Believing that Mirai was going to jump, Akihito rushed to the rooftop in an attempt to save her... only to be stabbed through his chest by a sword made from Mirai's own blood. From there, their relationship began when she started to use Akihito as target practice due to his immortality and developed when Akihito started accompanying Mirai on her youmu hunts. Their relationship would take a hit when it was revealed that Mirai was originally given the task of assassinating Akihito in order to prevent his youmu side, Beyond the Boundary, from breaking through and potentially destroying the world. However, Mirai, having fallen in love with Akihito, decided to sacrifice herself by absorbing Beyond the Boundary, wiping herself from existence. Things only get complicated when it's later revealed that Beyond the Boundary brought her back to life at the cost of her memories, forcing Akihito to distance himself from her so that she lives a normal life, followed by Mirai eventually regaining her memories only to be possessed by a parasite youmu, causing her to try to kill Akihito and his friends. Suffice to say, it has not been smooth sailing for these two.
    • Intrigued by the amount of abuse that Akihito and Mirai had suffered through within their universe, the Court of the Gods had the couple hauled before them and told to explain their story to the Court. After providing the Court with detailed description of the events that occurred during their time as a couple, the Court briefly dismissed the pair while they determined the couple's fate. Fearing that there was a mistake and that they were going to be kicked out of the pantheon, the couple was pleasantly surprised to find out that they were instead going to be deified for all of the troubles that they had been put through... and subsequently mortified when they found out that Akihito's mother, who had shown up to the Court in her most provocative Cat Girl suit, had testified on the couple's half. Needless to say, the pair was a lot less enthusiastic about their ascension now that they know how they managed to get in.
  • Due to her clan's notoriety back in her world, Mirai was expecting to face similar treatment when she heard about the House of Hunters. To her surprise, she not only didn't face such treatment when she showed up at the the House of Hunters ond day, she ended up being highly valuable to the House due to herpowers and her track record with hunter spirits. Out of all of the hunters within the House, Mirai found herself more often than not hunting with the Monster Hunters, who, in addition to inviting Mirai to a number of their hunting excursions, have offered Mirai private access to their Felyne Kitchen, which the perpetually-hungry Mirai eagerly accepted.
    • That said, not all of the hunters have been so welcoming of Mirai's presence. In particular, the Hunter of Yharnam has repeatedly avoided Mirai due to her blood-manipulation powers, primarily out of concern for Mirai potentially getting infected by the tainted blood that has plagued Yharnam and fear for what kind of monster Mirai would turn into should she ever come into contact with the tainted blood.
    • In contrast with Mirai's decent relationship with a good number of the House's members, Akihito has a rather antagonistic relationship with the hunters of the pantheon since they keep using him a practice dummy for their weapons. Hoping to appease him, the denizens of House of Hunters told Akihito that they would stop using him as a practice dummy the moment they finally manage to hunt and kill all of the beasts that inhabit the panthon. This has only infuriated Akihito even further since the various pantheonic beasts were just as immortal as he was.
  • Due to the lack of a Spirit World Warriors Society within the pantheon, the couple usually get most of their spirit-hunting assignments from the Paranatural Activity Club due to the group's job of keeping spirits within the town of Mayview in line. While the Activity Club has not shied away from assisting the couple on more than one occasion, they would be lying if they said that Mirai's powers and Akihito's youmu side didn't unnerve the group a little. Except for the anime-obsessed Isaac of course, who thought that the couple were unbelievably awesome.
  • Given the fact that a youmu within their world known as the Hollow Shadow once possessed Akihito, which caused Beyond the Boundary to temporarily break free and wreak havoc, the couple have been constanly looking over their shoulder for any deities that were capable of Demonic Possession such as Pazuzu and Killer BOB. While Pazuzu has not shown much interest in the two, Killer BOB is more than eager to unleash Beyond the Boundary upon the pantheon, figuring that the massive amount of devastation and chaos caused would net him a mountain of garmonbozia. The only reason that BOB hasn't been successful so far is that everytime he possesses Akihito, Mirai quickly stabs Akihito and uses her blood to expel the supernatural entity from Akihito's body. Sure it usually leads to Beyond the Boundary breaking free and destroying everything in the immediate vincinity, but everyone can agree that it's still preferrable than letting someone like BOB take control of it.
  • As someone who's capable of weaponizing their own blood, Mirai found it quite unpleasant when she encountered fellow blood manipulators within the pantheon who weren't nearly as benevolent as Mirai was:
    • The first two were Jedah Dohma and Skarlet, whom Mirai had the misfortune of encountering while she was hunting a monster out in the House of Slaughter. Seeing her as a potential threat to his attempts to saving the world of Makai because of her status as a Spirit World Warrior, Jedah immediately attacked Mirai when she ventured near the House of Blood and Gore, with Skarlet joining in on the fight in order to acquire some of Mirai's blood for her own use. Unable to beat the combine strength of both deities, Mirai had to forfeit the hunt and hastily retreat from the House altogether.
    • The next blood manipulator she encountered was Carmine Prime, who ended up incurring her wrath one day when he started wailing on Akihito after he accidentally looked at Carmine the wrong way. Unlike her previous fight with Jedah and Skarlet, Mirai's fight with Carmine was much more one-sided on Mirai's part, consisting of Mirai injecting her sword into Carmine and and spraying her blood through him, killing the in-birth instantly.
    • Another blood manipulator that she encountered was Gibril, whom Mirai came across while she hunting for a monster in the House of Philosophy. When she finally tracked down the monster, she discovered that not only was Gibril there draining its blood in order to fuel her Septima, but she had also did this to a number of people back in Gibril's world, essentially reducing them to zombies. Disgusted, Mirai immediately attacked her, only to be subdued captured by Gibril, who planned draining Mirai's blood to see what effects it would have on Metallon. It was only through a timely intervention from a group of Monster Hunters after Akihito had informed them of Mirai's location that Mirai was able to see another day.
  • Being the last surviving member of the Kurta Clan himself, Kurapika was able to find some common ground with Mirai, whose clan was also wiped out by people who envied their ability. Sympathizing with Kurpika's attempts to bring his clan's killers to justice, Mirai has even agreed to lend her aid to Kurapika against Chrollo Lucilfer and any other Phantom Troupe members should they ever find a way into the pantheon. While she also pities Sasuke Uchiha due to how his clan was wiped out by his brother, the ninja has mostly earned her scorn because of his decision to join Orochimaru, which Mirai considers to be unforgivable.
  • Akihito, being the host for an exceptionally powerful and destructive youmu, has befriended Yuya Sakaki after the duelist managed to make Akihito laugh during on his many duels in the pantheon. Their friendship was cemented further after Akihito learned that Yuya was the reincarnated version of a highly destructive being known as Zarc and that his friend Yuzu was reincarnated to prevent Zarc's plans from succeeding, which made Akihito realize that Yuya and Yuzu were just as abnormal as Akihito and Mirai were. As a result, Akihito, along with Mirai, can often be seen attending their duels and cheering for either Yuya or Yuzu.
  • Having a rather intense glasses fetish, Akihito has paid disturbingly large amounts of money to see pictures of various bespectacled goddesses within the pantheon, with Mirai and Tohka Todo being the subject of the vast majority of said photos. Unfortunately for Akihito, Tohka, after finding out about the photos, was waiting for Akihito at his temple, where she proceeded to remove her glasses and beat the half-youmu senseless.
  • Whenever she isn't hunting demons, Mirai is usually tending to her bonsai trees near the House of Nature. This has endeared the Spirit World Warrior to Jet Black, who was ecstatic that he finally found someone in the pantheon who enjoyed tending to bonsai trees as much as he did. He was a little less ecstatic that Mirai was using most of her money to buy and maintain said trees, keeping her in Perpetual Poverty. Not wanting Mirai to end up like the rest of the Bebop, Jet has taken to letting Mirai tend to his own trees in order to ensure that she doesn't bankrupt herself on buying even more bonsai trees.

  • Enemies: Master Xehanort, Maleficent, Jafar, Gaston, Larxene
  • Opposes: Courtney Gears
  • Evil Counterpart: Adam Taurus (Beast)
  • Pities: Yang Xiao Long
  • Belle ascended as part of Alice's plan to gather all Princesses of Heart should danger arise. Beast followed Belle to the Pantheon, by accident, tearing through the gates of the Pantheon because he thought they were stealing her from him. Seeing this true dedication of love, Alice decided that Beast could ascend along with Belle in the House of Love.
    • Most of the time, Belle is a Lesser Goddess, but whenever she is with the other princesses, her rank jumps to Overdeity. Any attempts to use her heart for evil will result in the Beast cutting the offender to shreds, as Alternate!Gentaro and Courtney Gears would learn the hard way.
  • There has been talk about returning Beast to his true human form, but there's no confirmations as of late.
    • Until the Enchantress ascended and decided to fix that straight away, given that she was certain the curse she put that made him look like that was already lifted. However, but after then learning of the dangers in the Pantheon, as well as what title he represents with Belle, not to mention getting in trouble with the Court for turning him back without their consent, she's instead allowed him to shift between forms if the need arises.
  • The two spend time in their temple, waltzing underneath the moonlight. They have also invited many other couples to partake in their waltzing parties.
  • Charlotte LaBouff came to the temple and was delighted to see the two together. She was exceptionally happy for Belle for finding her own happiness and love for the Beast and has been gathering books from their massive library (most of them collections of fairy tales) so she could expand her lore of princess tales.
  • Belle constantly heads off to the House of Knowledge to read any and all books there. She's read each book at least twice. She gets along well with Twilight Sparkle because of this.
    • Upon hearing about Jack and Annie's Magic Treehouse, she went to them and began reading them stories, letting them borrow her books so they could experience the tales that she loves.
    • Belle's love of books provided to be crucial to destroying the Friendship Asylum, and learning about the fates of Queen Chrysalis and the real Gentaro.
  • Zapp Brannigan tried to get Belle for some alone time, but was declined for two reasons. First, his ways reminded Belle a lot of Gaston. Second, Beast came in and roared in his face, causing him to retreat.
  • Master Xehanort really hates Beast due to his determination to protect Belle. The Gods were amazed at how the Beast ripped through the dimensions of reality in order to save her, not even realizing what he just did.
  • They are not happy to hear that Gaston is in the Pantheon. The former has to deal with his constant annoyance and proposals, while the latter has to keep him a sharper watch and has made a vow to show no mercy this time.
  • The Master is a sore spot for the two due to the time he turned all the humans in the pantheon, including Belle herself (despite being a Princess of Heart), into clones of himself. When Belle was transformed, the Beast became so furious with the insane Time Lord, that he single-handedly defeated the clone army to deal with The Master himself. Fortunately, Rassilon was able to reverse the transformation.
  • Beast is trying to stop dumbass mortals from doing that one facial expression. He finds to be very cheesy these days.
  • They are aware of a timeline where they are the King and Queen of Auradon, have a son named Ben, and had banished the Disney Villains to an island. Beast insists that the film's events are an Alternate Continuity, while Belle has stated she's too young to think of having children.
  • Got very well with Blake Belladonna, who is inspired by Belle and like the Beast, is partially animal. The two learned that Adam Taurus, who's named after Beast, had tried to kill both Blake and Yang out of payback for the former's Heel–Face Turn, and managed to cut the latter's arm off. Beast responded that if he were to ever meet Adam, he'd pull his arms out of their sockets like an angry Wookiee to retaliate for Yang's arm.
    • Now that he has ascended, Beast absolutely abhors Adam Taurus for a myriad of reasons. A primary reason is becaus Taurus is named after the Beast, as his name was once Prince Adam. Beast believes that due to his extremism and hatred, Taurus is dragging his name down through the mud. The pair want nothing to do with the faunus. Unfortunately for his desires, he hasn't yet had the chance to meet the faunus face-to-face.
  • Ever since their live-action incarnation, have gotten closer to Hermione Granger and Lancelot.
  • Belle gave Chise a standing invitation to visit the House of Love, saying she understands better than anyone that soulmates can meet in...unconventional...ways. After some debate, the other residents allowed it.

    Elisa Esposito and the Asset 
Elisa Esposito and the Asset, Co-Deities of Fantastic Romances (Elisa: The Princess Without Voice; The Asset: Amphibian Man, Charlie)

  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: A bathtub filled with brackish water. Alternatively, Giles’ charcoal drawing of the two together.
  • Theme Songs: “The Shape of Water”, “You’ll Never Know”, “Elisa’s Theme” (for Elisa)

  • Enemies: Gaston, Albert Wesker, Mesogog, Hermaeus Mora
  • Pities: Elisabet Vogler (for Elisa)
  • Good Counterpart to: The Gill-man (The Asset)
  • During the Cold War in the early 1960’s, there was a mute woman name Elisa Esposito, who worked as a night-time janitor in a top secret research facility. Things changed for her when she discovered what her superiors call the Asset, an amphibious humanoid creature confined to a water tank. Elisa, out of loneliness, fascination, and sympathy for its torture at the hands of head security officer Richard Strickland, befriended and developed a relationship with the creature. They were chosen to represent Fantastic Romance after the Court of the Gods took notice of their story.
  • In many ways, they have been compared to Belle and the Beast with the most obvious being that both Belle and Elisa are in love with a monster (the Beast and the Asset respectively). Not only that, but they both stand up against their respective adversaries and end up with their true love. As such, the two couples get along pretty well. Additionally, both Elisa and the Asset have a disdain towards Gaston as his disregard towards the Beast reminds Elisa of Strickland’s mistreatment of the Asset.
  • The two seem to get along well with Hellboy, who would sometimes visit their temple. Elisa isn’t quite shocked with his appearance, having been used to the Asset. For Hellboy, something about the Asset has reminded him of his friend Abe Sapien, noting his similar looks.
  • They have also befriended Edward Scissorhands as he finds their relationship to be similar to his own relationship with Kim. Edward also understands their situation of coming from a society oppressing them. Elisa and the Asset also befriended Alana and Marko given their similar Interspecies Romance.
  • It’s no surprise that some deities believe that the Asset is related to the Gill-man, especially considering their similarities to each other. For the Gill-man, he saw Elisa as a potential mate, which led to him attempting to snatch her. The Asset didn’t take that well, and the two amphibious creatures engaged in a showdown, which ended with the Gill-man retreating. Since then, the Asset has been keeping an eye on the Gill-man in case he goes after Elisa again. On the other hand, they seem to be on better terms with another fish-like creature, Rikuo.
  • Elisa is good friends with Amélie Poulain due to both of them being quirky, but introverted women. Amusingly enough, Amélie is fascinated with seeing Elisa and the Asset together.
  • Elisa can not talk given that as a child, she was found in a river with wounds on her neck. As such, she usually communicates through use of sign language.
    • Saoirse visited the two’s temple out of curiosity. Upon encountering Elisa, she is reminded of herself, particularly due to both of them being mute (well, Saoirse was for a while) and their connection with aquatic creatures. Since then, she has been hanging out with her every now and then despite the age difference. Of course, Saoirse would sometimes invite her older brother, Ben, as well.
    • As the Goddess of Adorable Muteness, Sona Buvelle sometimes visit Elisa and the Asset’s temple to play some music for them.
    • Elisa is pretty sorry for Elisabet Vogler given the latter’s situation, even though Elisabet’s muteness comes from her unwillingness to talk.
  • Unfortunately, there are some deities who are interested in experimenting on the Asset. Among those people, they include Albert Wesker, Mesogog, and Hermaeus Mora. In particular, Wesker is fascinated with the Asset as he reminds him of the Hunter Gamma variants he has experimented on. Elisa has been trying her best to keep the Asset away from them.

  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Magic, Yokai, Dungeons, Sexuality, Adventure, Romance
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Wary of: Flynn, Izanami, Kurama, all Assassins in the Pantheon (Ceri)
  • Evil Counterpart: Ainz Ooal Gown (Yomi)
  • The duo's ascension to the Pantheon began with a rather nasty misunderstanding: a routine patrol of Yomi's dungeon ended badly as a cracked warp stone caused them to be tossed into the Void Between the Worlds. Meanwhile, Flynn of the House of Personal Appearance was running diagnostics on the Yamato Reactor, and the small portal it created spit them out on the other end. Needless to say, this unexpected intrusion didn't sit well with Flynn in the slightest, particularly after the the Great Upheaval. While Ceri panicked and nearly crossed swords with the furious Samurai, which would have ended disastrously, Yomi kept her head and was able to explain they meant no ill will toward the machine, and Flynn took them to meet the powers that be so that they could work out the situation. To everyone's surprise, the interview revealed their latent divinity; having slept with so many of her servants, Yomi became the goddess of Unequal Pairing with Ceri as her 'other half', to Yomi's amusement and Ceri's mortification.
    • While Flynn has (mostly) gotten over their inadvertent 'break-in' to the Reactor Room, he still took a moment to tell the two how incredibly lucky they had been that he was the one working on it instead of the 'other guy'. The Demi-Fiend, after all, likely wouldn't have given Yomi an opportunity to explain herself, and even if he was in a good enough mood to hear them out, Ceri pointing a sword at him would have been an irrevocable death sentence.
    • While their ranks are the same, Ceri is on the lower end of the power level within that rank, and Yomi is on the higher end, reaching borderline Intermediate Goddess levels. There are those that thought that most of Ceri's power comes by being bound to Yomi, except Yomi never actually empowered Ceri as a servant, and Ceri has since been released from that contract anyway.
  • The first thing Yomi did after their temple was set up was to establish portal connection to her home world: she had already spent a length of time away after she was put under that sleeping spell, and she didn't want Sylvi, Isabella, and Charlotte to worry about her again. As soon as it was online, Yomi went to work on a new dungeon fit for a goddess: she plans to use every available resource in the Pantheon to make it her masterpiece. All except the random encounters. Those're going to be imported from her home world. Ceri helps on and off, spending most of her time exploring the Pantheon, dungeon-delving, training with other swordsmen and women and doing odd jobs as a proper adventurer should. Among her exploits are the Keeper's Dungeon and the Death Egg. Eggman has expressed irritation with her rampages through his base: that hedgehog is annoying enough, and now he has to deal with some "cosplayer" hacking up his robots and smashing his storage containers. They HAVE lids for a reason: there's no call to break them open to get at their contents. The knight has joined a couple of raiding parties for some of the tougher expeditions, fighting alongside and befriending the likes of Bell Cranel.
    • Ceri has been challenging herself in what more than a few gods and goddesses consider to be one of the most brutal 'dungeons' available to the Pantheon: the madness-addled, plague-ridden, monster-infested realm of Yharnam that has partially manifested in the House of Slaughter. Even with the occasional aid of a silent, saw-wielding man in a hat and coat who crosses paths with her from time-to-time (they first met when he pulled her armored butt out of the fire during her duel with that lunatic in the graveyard with the telescoping axe), she's still been beaten down more times than she cares to count. She persists regardless: according to Ceri, challenging and improving oneself against steep odds is the essence of humanity. Yomi is worried she'll get herself really hurt one day, and to be honest she doesn't like Ceri's new friend all that much; yes, he saved her life, and for that Yomi is very grateful, but the way he doesn't speak is a little off-putting, she noticed the way his hand twitched toward his gun when he saw her ears and tail, and she gets a strange, sinking feeling whenever Ceri talks about Yharnam that there's more to the city than her lover knows. That there's something about it that the Hunter doesn't want her to find out…
    • The Hunter quickly realized that Ceri's armor was, if anything, a detriment against the horrors of Yharnam; too clunky for full freedom of movement, but too fragile to offer a proper defense, to say absolutely nothing of the big 'insert razor-sharp claw/weapon here' spot right over her goddamned heart. As such, he procured her a basic Hunter Set. Ceri was glad to have an outfit that didn't show of an exorbitant amount of skin, and Yomi offered to send it to Isabella for enchanting, so that it would offer increased protection on top of mobility. Ceri realized her mistake in accepting the offer far too late, and to her dismay the Garb came back to her with a number of unwanted 'improvements' on top of the enchantments. She's at least glad Yomi didn't tell Isabella to do anything to the hat; to be fair, Ceri's not sure exactly how one DOES make a hat erotic, but in any case, the hat is perfect exactly as it is.
    • Speaking of armor, many gods laugh at her occasional insistence to default to her standard armor for protection, given how much 'protection' it actually gives, especially in regards to the frontal area where she's expected to be attacked from the most. And because she doesn't have Isabella as readily on-hand for each and every time the armor needs repairs in the Pantheon, she's taken the time to check out what else it offers, and makes absolutely sure to keep her findings out of Yomi's hands.
    • Ceri unfortunately has decided to put her exploration of Yharnam on indefinite hold after something particularly horrifying happened: she had been helping Isabella around Yomi's inn when Isabella accidentally cut her hand and began bleeding rather heavily. Ceri doesn't even remember the exact series of events, but one second she had noticed Isabella's injury, the next she had seized Isabella's hand and had begun slurping the blood down. It took half a day for Yomi to coax Ceri out of her room, after which Yomi made Ceri swear not to return to Yharnam until she was sure she could be inoculated against whatever the hell had just driven her to do such a thing. Ceri gave her word readily, terrified at the idea of what she was becoming.
    • As for other dungeons, other additions to Ceri's (and Yomi's) list are the Darkest Dungeon, King Togwaggle's Catacombs, and the Abyss.
  • Yomi spends quite a lot of off-time in the House of Love, allowing herself to be pampered. She especially enjoys the mud pools; they come very close to stacking up to the ministrations of the Mud Girls back home. She drags Ceri along with her every so often: while the adventurer appreciates not having to fend off amorous Mud Girls, Yomi insists on sharing a tub with her, and sometimes the fox gets a little grabby…
    • Other times, she goes to the Houses of Commerce and Costumes, hoping to add to her wardrobe of suggestive outfits; some of them she's certain she wouldn't be able to get at all in her home dimension. Of course, she drags Ceri along with her on these trips, much to the knight's chagrin.
  • Once approached the Pantheon's Anubis, thinking it was her old friend. She was thoroughly confused upon finally meeting the deity, given that this one was most definitely male and had a jackal head. It took a few seconds to clear up the misunderstanding: Yomi must've mistaken the god for his little sister.
  • Despite enjoying themselves in the Pantheon overall, the two have made a couple of enemies, Aconologia being prime among them. As if Vesta was bad enough, Acnologia's a dragon who takes the hatred of humans to a whole new level, and unlike Vesta, Yomi doesn't see either of them defeating the Black Dragon of the Apocalypse any time soon. She has sternly warned Ceri not to mess with him, and Ceri has taken it to heart.
    • Also somewhat nervous around Kurama. According to Yomi, the Kitsune back in her world are a lot smaller. And prettier. And not nearly as psychotically violent. While they're not enemies, she still gives him a wide berth.
    • On the topic of the aforementioned Keeper, Yomi doesn't like him at all. He used an imp to speak to her and suggest an alliance; he could use a powerful mage like her as a minion. She politely declined at first, having heard of his 'pedigree', but the Keeper persisted, finally noting she's not much more moral than he is; both magic to force enemies to obey against their will. Besides, he wasn't asking her to join him. He was just giving her a chance to come along willingly. At this assertion, Yomi calmly opened her umbrella, shouldered it, and then vaporized the imp with a Fire Twist. When next she saw Ceri, Yomi declared she would come along the next time the knight saw fit to attack the Keeper's Dungeon.
  • While Yomi doesn't import any monsters in the Pantheon to her dungeon, she (and Ceri) still has the Capture spell for taking down rowdier random encounters (as long as they're weaker than her) and returning to her prison cells later where they're transported (and proofed against thaumaturgic magic, divine interventions (read: prayers to gods), earthquakes, fires, slimes, and even temporal portals learning from when a Succubus she once captured used a portal to access her storage room). There, she negotiates with them, and later sets them free, or they sometimes join her (and Ceri) for a while, which is usually the case for (non-ascended) Pokémon and SMT demons. And given the dungeons Ceri goes to, the knight has convinced the fox spirit to at least let them tag along as "party members"; some dungeons may be more than any of Yomi's subordinates could handle, even the ones from the Abyss dimension Vesta once had.
  • They get along quite well with Rias Gremory and her peerage: Yomi is always moved when she sees a leader who treasures the thoughts and feelings of her underlings rather than using them as tools, and emphatically supports Rias' relationship with Issei. Ceri meanwhile has found a sparring partner in Kiba.
  • Were rather unnerved to find Izanami in the Pantheon, after having apparently defeated her down in the Abyss. To make matters worse, this Izanami is at full power. At the very least, Yomi acknowledges that Izanami is not evil, simply different in terms of morality, and is pleased to note that there are plenty to keep her suppressed should she try the fog thing again.
  • The two get along rather well with Luka and his wife Alice, though she is a little wary of the latter's affiliation with what Yomi considers an extremist group; they, like Yomi herself, support human-monster friendship and are open to romance should it come down to it. Luka enjoys Ceri's company; the two of them swap stories of their adventures from time-to-time (with Yomi and Alice close by to clear up any…embellishments that slip into the narrative), and because she's human she's immune to his 'good smell'. Luka was shocked and then immensely relieved when it became apparent that it didn't cause Yomi to pounce on him either; despite the scent, she doesn't swing that way. Unfortunately, while the scent didn't attract her to the human child, it did slowly get to her, and she began shooting amorous glances at Alice instead. Nowadays they try to meet separately to avoid any awkwardness.
  • Another swordswoman Ceri has befriended is Lumi: the two enjoy swapping adventuring stories and sparring to keep their skills sharp. Yomi meanwhile has offered her own support in taking down the God of Deep Jealousy by having some of her underlings, all Cute Monster Girls and all quite powerful in their own right, go down to the parallel world to join the fight. That's not the only thing the fox spirit has offered, though; a universal truth Yomi has learned in her centuries of being alive is that gay, straight or otherwise, skimpy clothing can act as a force multiplier for a sexual relationship. To Ceri's aggravation, Yomi has offered to hook Lumi up with some outfits Youta would just adore. Needless to say, Lumi's initial impression of Yomi being a wise, classy, elegant woman has been somewhat challenged by this: as lustful as the paladin can become, she has a feeling that Yomi is on a completely different level...
    • Once the God of Deep Jealousy was revealed to be a machine with Youta's childhood friend Nishina frozen as the core, Yomi immediately contacted Hiruko, a fox-girl alien with access to that sort of advanced technology. Unfortunately, Hiruko couldn't tell her anything of note: even for her, the idea of a machine that can 'curse' a planet's population to die at 20 is beyond even her own race's technology.
  • Among Ceri's sparring partners is William Adams, a trainer she chose because, she's ashamed to admit, his skill at battling Yokai. Maybe, with the tricks he can teach her, she can finally defeat Yomi in a one-on-one fight. During an excursion into the warrens, Yomi was surprised to see Ceri employ an unfamiliar breathing technique, staying perfectly calm as she hacked her way through the swinefolk seeming without need to pause regain her footing. Ceri described this as 'ki pulse', a trick William taught her to prevent wasting stamina. Apparently she's hoping to get a Living Weapon, but no Guardian Spirit has bonded with her yet.
    • Another sparring partner is Ciri, and the two have become close friends. Despite Ciri only using a fraction of her abilities during their duels, Ceri realizes full well that the ashen-haired girl is beyond even Yomi, and is a little bitter in the knowledge that she will never, ever surpass her. Met Geralt as well during her trips to Ciri's temple; she, too, confused the Witcher for her friend William for a moment. Not to mention the time when Geralt called for Ciri and both swordswomen answered in unison, forcing a mildly annoyed Geralt to indicate who he was addressing.
  • Yomi was surprised to find a humanoid fox spirit like herself in the form of Ahri in the House of Power. The two enjoyed each others company. Oh boy did they enjoy each other's company.
  • The two had a run-in with The Dreaded Reaper, the bane of dungeon explorers. No one knows if the encounter was accidental or Ceri actively sought it out (more likely the former as Ceri's mostly gotten over her recklessness). Either way, she and Yomi barely escaped with their lives. Ceri would later say that the Reaper "made Ella and Emma look like insects".
  • Yomi is wary of Ainz Ooal Gown. Both happen to be leaders of a large gathering of monsters, have power to back up that leadership, are benevolent to their subordinates, and have mingled with select humans peacefully at some point (one or two for Yominote , an entire village, an adventuring party, and more for Ainz). The difference is that Ainz was once a powerless human before becoming what he is now, and Yomi was once very powerful before being greatly weakened by the time she was introduced in her story. Oh, and there's the whole opposing alignments deal, and how they regard humans (he looks down on them despite once being one, she finds them interesting even if she never was a human).
  • Ceri hates assassins, considering them underhanded and untrustworthy, too cowardly to face their enemies in an honorable fight, and willing to throw entire nations into turmoil with a well-placed blade for the sake of a little coin. Even relatively civil individuals like Ezio Auditore da Firenze get a wary gaze from her (he's clarified he's less a killer for hire and more like a "grand-scale freedom fighter", but this got a full-blown eye-roll from her, as she muttered "Oh, an assassin with a cause, even better..."), she outwardly admits she's genuinely afraid of those like Corvo Attano, Widowmaker, and Agent 47, and she point-blank refuses to talk about her run-in with Melona. Ezio's a little nettled at the way she strawmans his profession, but he doubts he'll change her opinion any time soon.

  • Conflicting Opinion: Kratos
  • Oppose: Dala
  • Ascended sometime after leaving the fake Yasogami High School festival together. To their surprise, they had found themselves in the Trope Pantheons and in the face of the Court or the Gods. As for their position, which is representative of their love for one another and for what they are, as well as the reason they're even here in the first place, while Zen was confused with that reason, Red didn't care once she and Zen were told of their friends, who were here as well and were being invited to their ascension ceremony.
    • Indeed, during that, the couple re-encountered the members of S.E.E.S. and the Investigation Team, who have since been reminded of the events there.
  • Applies to both:
    • They remain in touch with their old companions from that adventure, though they're admittedly a bit adverse to the idea of Yukiko cooking for them again. On the other hand thanks to Naoto's ingenuity, they believe she may play a key role in supplying him with ammunition capable of instantly killing F.O.E.s.
    • The two are often seen at the House of Food with Rei stuffing herself and Zen commonly keeping guard.
    • Utterly confused to see a deity calling themselves Chronos in the pantheon as they thought he was defeated. They're not sure if he's a future incarnation, from an alternate world or something else altogether but they're wary of dealing with him.
    • The two were surprised to learn of Kotone Shiomi's existence since she wasn't involved with the fake culture festival incident.
    • Understandably do not like Kratos but are unsure as to feel about him sacrificing himself to give hope to mankind, as well as the fact that he's a father now.
    • Greatly disturbed by Monokuma and his Mastermind Junko because of their twisted love for the despair in life being a perverse mirror of the lesson they learned.
    • Have heard of S.E.E.S.'s and the Investigation Team's second foray into yet another labyrinth-like place, this time with Kotone and the Phantom Thieves of Hearts in the mix (and in the lead). They have reserved their opinions on the new group of Persona-users for the time being.
  • Exclusive to Zen:
    • Zen has a negative opinion of Nyarlathotep and Zanza, telling them both in the end that even they'll disappear.
    • Nobody is quite sure if Zen can regain the full extent of his power as Chronos. Most of his enemies don't want to find out as he'd readily abuse them, stopping time, rewinding it to rejuvenate himself and reducing his opponents lifespan to moments.
    • As he was somewhat emotionless himself, Zen pities emotionless deities, even Kyubey.
      • He (and Rei) also pity a large number of magical girls and respect Madoka for what she does. The two hope Homura will be able to one day truly understand Madoka's wish and the beauty of a fleeting life.
    • Reuniting with their old companions lead them to encountering more Persona-users in the pantheon. Zen was caught off guard when meeting Tatsuya Suou as the two sound similar.
    • Though allies with Eren Yeager, it did not start off well as Eren was confused by the fact that they share their voices and misinterpreting someone referring to Zen as a titan. His actions since the Time Skip as Kruger however have made a deeper wedge between them.
  • Exclusive to Rei:
    • Often always has food in hand, and can even pull more from her pockets, even if it's food normally unsuited to being kept there, such as corndogs and takoyaki.
    • Gets along well with Sasha Blouse somewhat because of their shared habits. They're somewhat amused by how similar they sound.
    • Is apologetic to a few of her old friends. Particularly Makoto and Shinjiro as they were already fated to die, making her ashamed of lashing out at them.
    • Rei is asked to stay away from Labrys for safety reasons, somewhat unfortunately as the two believe they share a connection.
      • When asked why, it's because of potential history. Rei used to be a sickly girl from Inaba named Niko who was hospitalized and had desires to go to school, but couldn't and eventually died in the surgery table, not fulfilling much in life, while Labrys' personality pattern was based on a young Ill Girl who wanted to go to school but couldn't because of her condition, yet made a difference thanks to doctors researching her terminal disease The speculation of their connection is from the theory that that girl and Niko are one and the same and that Rei simply doesn't remember due to the trauma of Niko's last moments as her surgeon failed to cure her.
      • Rei thought the restriction was stupid and eventually went (with Zen, of course) to visit, and found her in a conversation with her "younger sister" Aigis. Immediately, both androids felt something stir in their memories (especially Aigis as she began to draw the comparisons and the "mandate" to keep them apart), but they couldn't conclude anything as Rei approached them. Since she didn't see the logic of enforcing the separation now that they're in the same area, Aigis allowed the encounter to unfold as they conversed. In the end, nothing really special occured; just Rei (and Zen) making another friend.
    • Being a Big Eater, Rei understandably enjoys the feasts of her soundalike Miyu Edelfelt.
    • Perhaps surprisingly, Rei can be seen in the Houses of Otherness as well as Health and Diseases, trying to further distance herself from fears of hospitals and ghosts. During one trip to the latter, she had an unfortunate encounter with the Think Tank's Dr. Dala, who started asking her many questions not helped by her voice. Zen managed to get Rei away from the old doctor, though she clarified later that she has no intention of doing physical harm on Rei. Her studies would not be benefited by any vivasection of the sort on this "special little teddy bear". Still, they avoid her whenever they can since her disposition is closer to the Kind Doctor they met back then, and they at least want to not meet the other Think Tank members.
    • Rei is pretty disturbed by SMT!Alice, though she does have some respect for her caretakers Belial and Nebiros.
    • Heard of the TV World in the Pantheon and that her Shadow residing there. Having gotten over the fact that she had been dead (and isn't now), she's been contemplating facing it again. Having appeared in a Persona game, just like Vincent Brooks and the Dojimas, she would be able to use it out here to help Zen be better able to protect her or to protect Zen in return for all the time he did so.
      • And so a trip was arranged, with Yu, Aigis, Rise, and Labrys accompanying the couple. It was painful to hear what Shadow Rei had to say, for instead of what she had said before, she was grilling Rei of other things, such as whether or not she thinks herself worth being Zen's girlfriend, or if she really believes her tendencies to confuse certain statements with food-related words are endearing, and other such things. Unprepared for these questions, Rei quickly demied her Shadow once again, who shortly went berserk and once more transformed into Best Friend. Once more, Zen and his companions engaged it in battle.
      • After once more defeating her Shadow, Rei was given the emotional courage (mostly from Zen) to face her (not as bad as before) fears, and she was soon able to accept it, and in doing so became a Persona-user.

    Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence

  • Symbol: Two holding hands under a High School sign.
  • Theme Song: Boy Meets World Theme Song
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolios: Parental Substitute for Maya, Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome, Determinators
  • Domains: Good, Knowledge, Luck, Family, Law (Topanga)
  • Heralds: Their children, Riley and Auggie
  • Allies: George Feeny, Eikichi Onizuka, Piccolo, Nico Robin (Cory), Phoenix Wright (Topanga)
  • Enemies: Nikita Dragovich
  • Opposes: Ghetsis Harmonia
  • Uneasy Relationship: Zack Morris, Sabrina Spellman and Salem, Tashkent (Cory)
  • When the Pantheonic School needed new teachers to keep running, Feeny brought forth an unusual prospect: a mortal named Cory Matthews, how former student who has now become a history teacher. While he proved to be capable at his job, it was decided that he need to ascend himself in order to stay. Feeny had an idea; Cory would bring his wife Topanga into the Pantheon for their romance dating back to high school. Thus he got back to teaching the kids there while Topanga decided to delve into Pantheonic law.
  • Eikichi Onizuka took a liking to Cory during his time as a mortal and was glad to have more good-aligned teachers in the Pantheon. Cory tried to be a follower... but couldn't quite become the Cool Teacher he was hoping to be. It was never his strong suit in the first place.
  • The pairing was so popular, it created a spinoff that lasted three seasons. This time around, it centered on their daughter Riley. She and her brother Auggie reside alongside their parents in their temple. Maya tags along as well. While many question the decision, many in the House of Family figured that she may well be an honorary sister. Piccolo would be proud.
  • The two of them were wary of the appearance of Zack Morris and not just because of the rivalry between the two shows. It was revealed that Griff Hawkins was one of his followers. He wasn't a bully per say, but he did cause them a bit of misery. While they are in better terms with each other, he fears that Zack may have a corrupting influence on many of his students, especially Maya.
  • As parents themselves, Cory and Topanga stand opposed to Ghetsis Harmonia and his methods of raising children.
  • There was a time when they walked by a familiar duo. When Cory turned them around, he recognized them as Sabrina and Salem... which sent Cory running. When Topanga asked what got him spooked, Salem admitted that he accidentally sent the entire class into the past. They thought that they were able to wipe their memories of the incident, but it looked like their ascension jogged Cory's memory.
  • Gained the approval of Nico Robin, who temporarily took over the job after Cory's departure. While some more lustful students lamented her departure, the vast majority of them admit that Cory knows his stuff.
  • An all American boy, Cory doesn't take Communism too kindly. His daughter was almost consumed by the concept's philosophy before he managed to shake her out of it. When he found out that there was a deity for such people, Cory pinned an American flag upon Nikita Dragovich's temple. Needless to say, the Dirty Communist didn't take that insult well.
    • The first Soviet to visit him after that took him by surprise. He was visited by a ship girl calmly but firmly demanding an apology. Cory was taken aback by the kind approach but was suspicious it could be a trap. An interrogation from Topanga revealed she held no ill content. The lawyer got Cory to apologize for the rude gesture before seeing her off.
  • Cory avoids the subhouse of Water and Ice like the plague, mainly because he doesn't want to be put in a situation where he ever has to wear skis again. When one finds out why, you would understand why it's a touchy topic.
  • Topanga decided to wet her toes in the House of Justice to see just how good the lawyers in the Pantheon are. She felt most inspired by the actions of Phoenix Wright. At the least, she wished her cases were as exciting as his. At least now she gets a taste of what the Crusading Lawyer has to deal with.

  • Respected By: A Majority of the Houses of Love, Friendship, Emotion and School, Hunter Zolomon (One-sided only on his part)
  • Avoids: The Mad Piano
  • Kousei Arima was a masterful child pianist, taught and trained by his mother to be the very best he could be. Unfortunately, a concert session went awry and Kousei and his mother had a fallout, concluding with the boy stating he wished his mother was dead. Surprisingly, his mother died the next day due to illness and the guilt from the event rendered Kousei depressed and anxious, unable to properly play. Two years later in Spring season, Kousei's friends would introduce him to Kaori Miyazono, a high-spirited teen violinist who took notice of Kousei the moment they met. After a tearful pleading from Kaori, Kousei was once again motivated to play piano in his town concert. However, there was more than just motivation, as Kaori was actually ill and didn't have much time left, hence he wanted Kousei to continue playing. That, and she truly loved him, but kept her feelings to herself.
    • What followed for the two of them was tragedy. Kousei was beginning to get back into playing piano for future touring, but Kaori's worsening condition was dragging the boy back to his previous mentality when his mother died. Kaori promised that she would play with Kousei in an upcoming concert, but the promise wasn't fulfilled; she succumbed to Friedreich's ataxia during a surgery in the middle of said concert, although Kaori's spirit played with Kousei before passing on. Months later in another spring, Kousei read a posthumous letter in which Kaori admitted to having loved Kousei since childhood. Though she may be gone, Kousei has since continued to live on doing what he's best in and remembering Kaori's wishes.
  • Kousei received a letter from the Pantheon to be a part of a concert play being held in the House of Music. Though difficult, Kousei did manage to attend and was surprised to see a massive crowd of people wanting hear his playing style. Kousei played a grand and wonderful piano play, though he felt incredibly nervous at first, playing for such a huge crowd. After the concert, he took a trek in the Pantheon, though he was completely unprepared for what was to unfold once he strolled into the House of Love. There, he took a glance at a familiar figure who revealed herself to be Kaori. Overwhelmed with shock and excitement, Kousei and Kaori immediately ran up towards each other and embraced each other with a tearful hug. The event has since been recorded as one of the most bittersweet moments in the Pantheon.
  • Though most residents would often talk about how close they are, Kousei and Kaori would openly call out that they're not a couple. Kousei is calm and reserved about it, though Kaori gets huffy and boisterous whenever someone brings it up. They'd often get reprimanded by the fact that they're occupying a spot in the House of Love, so something must be going on. Kousei and Kaori nowadays tend to avoid this topic as much as they could.
  • Kousei takes therapy sessions once in a while. He is aware that he cannot always rely on Kaori, hence he's been trying to get advice from several residents on how to manage and care for his well-being at times. Additionally, playing in a concert with a huge crowd can be incredibly overwhelming, alongside being witnessed by several critics.
  • The two have struck a friendship with Tomoya and Nagisa when they attended one of Kousei's concert sessions. Nagisa and Kaori, in particular, seem to hang out a lot as the two can relate to one another in how they motivated their significant love and went through a severe illness throughout their life. Ever since their meeting, the two couples have decided to regularly meet up with one another as a means of especially keeping Tomoya and Kousei mentally well.
  • Should the two of them be out shopping, Kousei will normally be the one to do much of the heavy-lifting, much to Kaori's amusement. Additionally, while Kousei is content with just egg sandwiches and "Moo-Moo" brand milk, Kaori will chase after any sweet she can get her hands on. Her appetite has something to do with the fact that she wanted to have as much experience as she could before dying without regrets.
  • Became well-acquainted with several musicians in the Pantheon, with Beethoven and Mozart being very praiseworthy for Kousei. They have a surprising friendship with Linkin Park, despite them playing an entirely different music genre. A lot of residents have stated that Kousei and Chester can relate to one another a lot as both dealt with depression and anxiety. Kaori has since become one of the most popular violinists in the Pantheon, though she doesn't like the fact that some of her fame might have something to do with pity.
    • That said, Kaori is a very popular person to be around with kids, who reciprocate her elegant soothing playing style. Because of this, Kaori spends a good amount of time in the Children Sub-House to spend time with and play music for kids.
  • Hunter Zolomon has opened up to being a fan of Kousei. Not exactly because he is an amazing pianist (Which Zolomon agrees on), but because Kousei has been several episodes of depression, self-depreciation and stress that he had to overcome and, by proxy, praises Kaori for motivating him despite her own illness. Given what kind of character Zolomon is, Kousei and Kaori keep their distance from him.
    • That said, Spider-Man is a lot more amicable with the two, thinking that Kaori instilling Kousei with hope and responsibility has definitely helped him out.
  • Some residents aren't exactly fond of Kaori, thinking she was selfish and manipulative towards Kousei. She hasn't taken the news rather well, given the emotional trauma she went through to make Kousei motivated in life, but she's doing her best not to start feeling oppressive towards her detractors as she knows it wouldn't look good on her and Kousei.
  • Once Kousei and Kaori came across a peculiar looking piano. Although Kousei wasn't feeling the mood, Kaori pushed him into giving it a try. Unfortunately, the piano suddenly sprung to life with a jaw of sharp teeth. Kousei bolted back in time to avoid being snatched and the staff in the House of Music immediately transferred the Mad Piano to a vault to ensure no harm comes across. Kaori has since been very apologetic about the situation, though Kousei states that it's okay, plus Kaori never would have expected a musical instrument to suddenly come to life.

I practiced till I passed out. I gave my all. And if I still turned in a sloppy performance after all that, then… That’s who I am now. It’s the current me, playing with everything I’ve got.

Maybe there’s only a dark road up ahead. But you still have to believe and keep going. Believe that the stars will light your path, even a little bit.

    Nabi and Doki 
Nabi and Doki, Co-Gods of Maligned Mixed Relationships
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/theresheis_8.jpg
Nabi (left) and Doki (right)
  • Demigods
  • Symbol: The pro-interspecies relationships sign
  • Theme Song(s): Multiple theme songs
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Interspecies Romance, Maligned Love, Star-Crossed Love
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Boba Fett (for the trouble he causes Alana and Marko), Lord Farquaad, Gaston, Frollo, Hans Westergard, Queen Chrysalis
  • Opposes: Penelope Mouse (bordering on enemies with Doki), the House of Hatred (especially those with racist motivations), many bounty hunter deities (again, for the trouble they cause Alana and Marko)
  • Nabi and Doki were offered a position in the Pantheon after enduring severe persecution due to their interspecies relationship. Nabi's house was vandalized with a rock through the window and graffiti on the outside (this was also done to the vending machines they often meet at), he and Doki were kicked out of a cafe for PDA, Doki landed herself in the hospital after being beaten up by an angry mob who also killed her pet hedgehog, and Nabi was thrown in jail for unwittingly inciting a riot. Their relationship alone was enough to spark massive protests and counter-protests alike. Despite everything, they endured and fought tooth and nail to stay together.
  • Perhaps their closest friends are Alana and Marko because of how much the two of them reminded them of themselves. Or at least they used to be close until the whole situation with Boba Fett and the other Bounty Hunter deities. As a result, Nabi and Doki are not overly fond of the bounty hunters of the Pantheon, especially Boba Fett.
  • Among others that rub Nabi and Doki the wrong way are Gaston, Frollo, Hans Westergard, Lord Farquaad, and Queen Chrysalis. This is mostly due to their attitudes towards love or their extreme attempts to get in the way of love. They were especially mortified by Queen Chrysalis after hearing about why she was banned from the House of Love. There's also Zapp Brannigan and Glenn Quagmire, but Nabi and Doki are more annoyed by them than anything and wouldn't really call them enemies.
  • Similarly to Alana and Marko, Nabi and Doki are also really friendly with Gumball and his family. They are especially impressed with his parents, who are also a cat and a rabbit. For the same reason they have also bonded with Oswald and his wife.
  • Shrek and Scott Pilgrim really admired Nabi for his determination to stay with Doki despite all the persecution against them. They were especially impressed with his mad dash to stop Doki from leaving on a plane. They've been friends ever since his and Doki's ascension.
  • Nabi is extremely sympathetic of Emily and her situation. There was a time where he came really close to letting Doki go so that she would be happy and safe, too. They frequently bond over this.
  • Doki's love of animals has carried over from her pre-ascension days. She can often be seen caring for animals or pet sitting with Fluttershy. Just don't be surprised if your pet comes back with a green ribbon tied around its neck. Also, Fluttershy has always been curious about what happened to Doki's pet hedgehog, but so far Doki has opted not to tell her. Not only is it a painful memory, but it would also probably make Fluttershy cry.
  • Another pony Doki is fairly close with is Princess Cadance. Not only does Cadance admire Doki for everything she went through just to be with Nabi, but Doki is also fascinated by her love magic. She has suggested that Cadance become a relationship counselor, but alas, royal duties and parenthood keep the princess extremely busy.
  • Doki is also on really good terms with Angel. Not only does she find the experiment adorable, but she also really admires her for what she did.
  • From the moment she first saw him, Doki was completely enamored with Cream's Chao, Cheese. She thought he was positively precious. From time to time, Doki has been known to visit Cream. Not just for a chat (although that's definitely part of it), but to also play with her adorable Chao.
  • Nabi and Doki are not fond of Penelope Mouse for what she did to Bentley, Doki especially. They felt so bad for him, and have been really friendly with one another since they both found out the reason he and Penelope broke up.
  • Excited to see new kin in the Pantheon, Judy Hopps, along with her partner Nick Wilde, made a point to introduce themselves, and have been friends ever since. Nick and Judy were especially touched by what Nabi and Doki endured prior to their ascension. Just hearing about it absolutely enraged Judy. Doki also seems to think that Nick and Judy are a couple, or at least they should be.
  • Doki often watches Lady and Tramp from a distance. She has made it her personal mission to successfully execute a spaghetti kiss with Nabi someday.

  • After their death, the two found solace in the Pantheon, where they could always be together forever. They give their blessings to any and all Star-Crossed Lovers in the hope that they all will eventually find happiness.
  • Their temple has a big balcony as a reminder of one of their most famous scene and where the couple planned to runaway together.
  • Their superior Shakespeare is annoyed that the two of them have a portion of the fanbase that see them as example of a healthy love story. Romeo and Juliet themselves are too consumed by each other to really care.
  • They were reincarnated various times, once in a modern setting, then in space and even as lawn yard gnomes.
    • Artix met up with them and told them of their reincarnations whom a hero went to the underworld and brought them back to the living to have a new beginning. The two wept tears of joy and have been eternally grateful to the paladin.
  • The two are disgusted when learned about Judge Frollo and his sexual harassment of Esmeralda. Also don't like Gaston for his unwanted advanced on Belle. This, along with their theme of lovers who can't be together, has made them good allies with Belle and the Beast.
  • The couple is a good ally for Angelo due to being the opposite of Frollo and was compared to Romeo by his team for his relationship with Jessica.
  • They became friends with detective Conan Edogawa due to his condition makes him unable to be with his love.
  • Has been in contact with Simba when he found out that their story is similar to that of his daughter Kiara. The couple welcomes Simba's presence because he allows his daughter to be with her love and avoiding the grisly fate like them.
  • To the surprise of everyone, the couple can be spotted engaging in a rap battle.
  • Being one of the most famous and iconic works of Shakespeare, the couple found themselves many interesting interaction within the Pantheon.
    • The couple is incredibly jealous of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth when they heard that the two of them are Happily Married to each other, despite the atrocities that they committed. The fact that both couples have many look-a-like doesn't help the matter.
    • Both of them feel incredibly sorry for Ophelia and angry at Hamlet for how abusive he is towards her. The fact that both couples have many look-a-like also helps, even if the couple has... less than pleasant encounter with Ophelia.
    • Was surprised when found out that Juliet has the same appearance as Lara Croft, of all people. Lara feels very sorry for the couple and sometimes can be seen near their temple to receive some 16th century Italian artifacts.
      • Was also surprised when found out that Juliet has the same voice as Tigress. The couple is uncomfortable when in her presence due to her no non-sense attitude and being a talking tiger and try to avoid her as much as possible.
    • The couple found kinship and similarity in their story with Jack and Rose, right down to their ending. Especially when the four found out that sometimes Jack looks like Romeo. Romeo and Juliet express disgust when they heard about Cal Hickley's action from Rose.
      • Romeo teams up with Jack in order to rescue Rose after hearing that Calvin Candie used his similarity with Jack to kidnap Rose. Since then, Romeo has increased security around his temple to avoid the same fate for Juliet.
    • Has a very... awkward encounter with Scarlett O'Hara when she faints after seeing Romeo because he looks like one of her former lover Ashley. The couple has been trying to avoid her after that when hearing about her reputation.
    • The two of them aren't very well-liked by Sherlock Holmes because he hates their impulsive and illogical actions. The fact that he sometimes looks like them just annoys him further.
    • Has been keeping an eye on Mr. Hyde, who sometimes is mistaken as Romeo and try to kill Juliet when she runs into the man and hugs him.
    • The couple and Jack Sparrow have been avoiding each other ever since they found out about each other's different lifestyle and that Romeo looks like one of Sparrow's "friend" Will Turner.
    • Juliet had a bit of a surprise upon encountering Beth March due to how similar in appearance they are to each other. The two ended up becoming friends after hearing about each other’s tragic demise.
    • Both Romeo and Juliet used to live in Gielinor's Varrok, it's best not to remind them about it. Oddly enough they can be found in another Varrok located in a alternate universe, only as disembodied heads and though they find this disturbing they actually like those counterparts best in the RuneScapeverse.
      • Romeo can also be found in a location simply known as 'Behind The Scenes' where he helped a adventurer with a actor who plays Guthix; who not only looks like Guthix, but apparently possesses his name as well. When Romeo met the actual god Guthix in the Pantheon, he initially mistook him for the actor causing no end of confusion for them both.
  • Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodnight till it be tomorrow.

    Stephen and Lucy Steel 
Stephen and Lucy Steel, Divine Representatives of Marriages Between Elders and Minors (Steven Steel, Lucy Pendleton)

  • Symbol: The Steel Ball Run trophy
  • Theme Song: Last Train Home
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Old Man Marrying a Child (actually an Intergenerational Friendship), Ugly Guy, Hot Wife
  • Domains: Marriages, Age, Friendship
    • Stephen: Entrepreneurship, Races
    • Lucy: Probability, Attraction
  • Allies: Johnny Joestar, Gyro Zeppeli, Jonathan Joestar, Erina Pendleton, Robert E. O. Speedwagon, their universe’s Josuke Higashikata, Jotaro Kujo, Jolyne Cujoh, Solid Snake, Madoka Kaname, Roland Deschain, Jesse McCree, Raiden (Metal Gear), The Boss, Theodore Roosevelt, Jade Chan and Tohru
  • Enemies: Funny Valentine, Dio Brando, Enrico Pucci, Steven Armstrong, Roose Bolton, Ramsay Bolton, Randall Flag, rapists, The Enclave
  • Opposes: Diego Brando, Solidus Snake
  • Arriving on horseback, Lucy and Stephen Steel reunited with Johnny and Gyro once they heard Funny Valentine returned in the Pantheon. They’re grateful but Johnny is miffed that he owes both of them a few more debts. They managed to ascend under a rather Squick title much to their chagrin. Once one hears of their backstory though, it becomes more understandable. Stephen met a child Lucy when he was going through a rough patch in his life, to which she gave him the basic rundown of the Steel Ball Run race which got him back on his feet. They met again years later but not in the best circumstances, as Lucy’s father was forced her to be pimped to a gang. Stephen hatched a plan to rescue Lucy, resulting in their marriage. Fortunately unlike some old people, Stephen doesn’t treat Lucy as a wife and the two have a strong platonic relationship with one another.
  • Applies to both of them
    • Were initially confused why there are multiple JoJos and Zeppelis, another Dio, another person who had the surname of Pendleton, and a guy named Speedwagon who looks a bit like Mountain Tim. Johnny explained to them the original JoJo universe, getting them up to speed. Though they wonder why Johnny had to include the part about the dancing gangsters. They get along with the mainline Joestar lineage well enough. They also noted how much Jonathan’s descendants contrasted with him by a mile, something that irks Jonathan until now.
    • The two were pleased to see a number of heroic cowboy deities were in the pantheon, who's convictions and geniality remind them of Mountain Tim. Given the era they come from, fondness for cowboys comes with the territories. They were also glad to learn of Theodore Roosevelt and his achievements as president from 1901-1909. It's not know if T.R exists in the SBR universe or if he becomes president, but he'll certainly try to.
    • Both are uncomfortable around Solidus Snake for being similar to Funny Valentine in some ways. The know he had good reasons for his villainy but those parallels don’t allow them to have a higher opinion on him. They find themselves siding with Solid Snake and Raiden because of it.
    • The idea of Armstrong ever becoming president is a worrying idea for them, regarding his vision for America to be a chaotic counterpart to Valentine's vision. What Randall Flagg did to the part of America he took over was particuarly hellish for them, as was the Enclave who might be even more xenophobic than what Valentine's America would be.
  • Exclusive to Stephen:
    • Stephen Steel is the organizer and host of the Steel Ball Run race, a great horse racing event. He's been interested in the various horse deities in the House of Ungulates. Centaur Man was annoyed that he wasn't allowed to participate since he's not technically riding a horse.
    • Wondered how the Pantheon’s economy works so he went to the House of Commerce to check. There he met Nigel West Dickens, a merchant from the Wild West who showed him the ropes around the place. Stephen knows that Nigel is likely trying to wrap him in some scheme but considering he got wrapped into an incident about a monkey dressed as an alien that destroyed his reputation for awhile, he’s sure he can handle whatever Nigel can cook up.
    • Is a bit miffed that there are still people who still thinks he’s a Dirty Old Man for his wife alone. He shares this with Jon Arryn who did get a wife to have an heir and the two became drinking buddies. At least they aren’t the Boltons. He's pretty creeped out by Walder Frey by, along with generally utterly contemptible and a Slimeball, being a very dirty and very old man who marries young girls. Jade and Tohru were weirded out, but calmed down and got along with the too when realizing their marriage was really an Intergenerational Friendship.
    • Bonded with Foo Fighters over their hairstyles being similar. They really don’t like it when someone makes fun of their hair and call them “eggshells”.
  • Exclusive to Lucy:
    • Lucy gained the Stand, Ticket to Ride once the Holy Corpse absorbed itself into her which practically makes her invincible. As the Holy Corpse is locked up, she doesn’t have access to this power and people whether or not it actually is her Stand or not.
    • Made friends with Haru Okumura, who was going to be married but got out of it. Also made friends with Sakura who Lucy is pretty surprised at how stable she is after all the hardships she went through in life. She and Stephen met Madoka Kaname and Lucy sees Madoka as a little sister she never had. Madoka is surprised that she and Lucy are closer to the same age than it seems.
    • Once got pregnant with the head of Jesus. No, we are not joking. She got better though and can safely say she has experienced a virgin birth. Ned Flanders went into confused panicking at how unorthodox this was to his fundamentalist Christian faith, however he remains friendly to Lucy herself. The House of FAITH wants to understand how it works.
    • Still doesn’t like Diego. Sure, the Attempted Rape wasn’t actually from him but a Diego from another reality, he’s still an asshole through and through. Still, neither of them are as bad as the OG Dio Brando. And she hates rapists due to Funny Valentine's Attempted Rape of her.
