    William and Elizabeth Turner 
Captain William Turner, Jr. and Captain Elizabeth Swann Turner, Holy Patrons of Couples Who Wed At Sea (William: Will, The Whelp - by Jack Sparrow; Elizabeth: Poppet, The Governor's Daughter, Lizzie, Bonnie Lass, Calypso, The Pirate King, Pirate Lord of the South China Sea)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wewlcu0e4mt01qc1upkv.jpg
Will and Elizabeth's wedding, during the Battle of Calypso's Maelstrom.
  • Intermediate Deities
  • Symbols: Will's sword and Elizabeth's Jian sword, crossed together
  • Theme Song: Will and Elizabeth's Love Theme
  • Alignment: Between Chaotic Good and Lawful Good
  • Portfolios:
  • Domains: Piracy, Marriage, War Against Piracy
  • Herald: William 'Henry' Turner III (their son), The Crew of the Flying Dutchman and The Pirates of the South China Sea.
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Davy Jones, The Phantom, Cervantes de Leon, Stannis Baratheon
  • Suspected Mentor To: Arya Stark (for Elizabeth)
  • Worthy Opponents: Red Sonja, Zorro
  • Annoyed By: Jack Horner (Fables)
  • In General:
    • Getting hitched at sea? Very romantic. Getting hitched at sea in the midst of a violent maelstrom whilst in the middle of battle, with Hector Barbossa himself conducting the ceremony? Pure win. Just ask William and Elizabeth Turner, as they have just ascended to the Pantheon (and freeing Will of his duty of ferrying the dead onboard the Flying Dutchman).
    • Thanks to Jack Sparrow, Will and Elizabeth's exploits were already the stuff of legend. The Battle of Calypso's Maelstrom was the icing on the cake. Of course, knowing Jack's habit of embellishing the truth, it was a surprise to discover that most of what Jack was saying about the Turners were true.
    • Stannis Baratheon is not a huge fan of pirates. While he did pardon Davos Seaworth and granted him a knighthood, he did chop off the tips of his fingers on his right hand. As for Will and Elizabeth, Stannis vows to show Elizabeth the same courtesy that he had given to Davos (i.e., chopping off her fingers), while for Will, Stannis wants to make him a head shorter.
    • The Phantom is not a big fan of the Turners either. Despite Will being the ferryman for those who died at sea and Elizabeth having retired from active piracy (yet retaining the title of Pirate King), they are firmly in the enemy category.
    • Cervantes de Leon is not on good terms with the Turners. Primarily because he wants to seize control of the Flying Dutchman from Will, usurp the title of Pirate King from Elizabeth, and torture their son for his own amusement.
    • As for Jack himself, he's still sore about Elizabeth burning his hidden stash of rum. Being left for Kraken bait, that he understands, and would have done the same thing. But burning the rum...that was unforgivable. Elizabeth did earn her way back into Jack's good graces by giving him several barrels full of premium rum upon arriving in the Pantheon. Jack's response? "Welcome to the Pantheon, love."
    • Whether you love or hate Will and Elizabeth, one has to admit that their wedding during the Battle of Calypso's Maelstrom was romantic, and very much badass. Granted that Will did end up dying, but he was later brought back from the dead.
    • Jack Horner has found himself earning the ire of the deified pirate couple. If it's not attempting to steal the Dead Man's Chest containing Will's heart, it's his attempts to steal Elizabeth's prized Chinese jian sword, a memento from her pirate days. Jack Sparrow himself is also not a fan of Jack Horner due to repeated attempts to steal his compass.
  • Will Only:
    • Before becoming a pirate, Will was a blacksmith's apprentice. When asked about his former occupation, Will replied, "I don't know. I guess I'm an old hat when it comes to being a blacksmith." When he's not hanging with his fellow pirates or spending time with Elizabeth, he can be seen at the forge, fashioning himself and Elizabeth new swords. So much so that Will got a visit from Vulcan himself. After seeing some of Will's work, he was impressed.
    • Once got an odd look from Odysseus. "Apologies. You look a lot like Prince Paris of Troy." Aragon also mistook him for the Elven archer Legolas.
    • Davy Jones was absolutely irate upon discovering that the Turners were not only alive, but have ascended into the Pantheon. He wants the Flying Dutchman back from Will, come hell or high water.
    • Will is on friendly terms with Jon Snow. The fact that they both were slain and brought back from the dead certainly helps. Of course, like his wife, both Jon and Will often engage in a friendly sword duel to see who is the better blade.
  • Elizabeth Only:
    • Arya Stark was dismissive towards Elizabeth at first, as she reminded Arya of Sansa. Then she learned about Elizabeth's exploits as the Pirate King. Elizabeth is amused, but admires Arya's spirit. The pair bond over the fact that they both lost their fathers, Arya seeing Elizabeth as an older sister.
    • Elizabeth found a friendly rival in Snow White due to her background in swordplay. That, and Snow's cubs adore Elizabeth. When she's not at her and Will's temple, she can be seen hanging around the House of Weapons.
    • While she respects Isabela of Rivain as a fellow pirate, she is wary of the looks that Isabela have been giving her now-adult son. "At least she's not trying to seduce the whelp," Jack had commented, referring to her husband.
    • As with her husband, Elizabeth is often confused with someone else. Padmé Amidala thought that her handmaiden, Sabé, had gone rogue upon looking at her. When placed side-by-side, even Will and later, Anakin Skywalker, had problems in figuring out who's who. "They both look exactly the same," Anakin notes. Surprisingly enough, only Jack was able to tell the two apart.

    Yoh Hinomura and Emu Hino 
Yoh Hinomura and Emu Hino, Divine Patrons of Non-Stop Lovemaking (Yoh: Yo Hinomura, Crying Freeman, Ron Tayan/Long Tai-Yang/Dragon Sun; Emu: Emu O'Hara, Fu Chinran/Fu Ching Ran/Hu Qi-Lin/Tiger Orchid)

  • Symbols: The Dragon Tattoos For Yoh; The Tiger Tattoos for Emu
  • Theme Song: Theme Of Crying Freeman
  • Alignment: True Neutral

  • Domains: Crime, Romance, Tattoos, Assassination, Chinese Mafia (despite being Japanese), Pottery (for Yoh), Painting (for Emu)

  • Rivals: For Both: James Moriarty, HYDRA, Balalaika and Hotel Moscow, Niko Bellic; For Emu: Kisuke Uzuki and Elektra Natachios; For Yoh: Bane, Grigori Rasputin,
  • Enemies: Vaas Montengegro, Jason Todd/Red Hood, Mai, Shiki Nanaya and Kano.
  • Opposed By: Vega, Talia Al Ghul, Kim Kaphwan, Sadira
  • Odd Friendship: with Kenshi Takahashi and Vergil Sparda for Emu, and Kazuma Kiryu and Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow and Lady Shiva for Yoh
  • Both Freeman and his wife (better known as Long Tai-Yang and Hu Qi-Lin in the criminal underworld) found an invite to the Pantheon while on vacation in Japan. The pair accepted the invite, which meant that the 108 Dragons' influence would increase.
  • Before becoming an assassin and later, the boss of The 108 Dragons, Freeman was originally known as Yoh Hinomura, a potter who had came across a roll of film which showed a hit being carried out by the 108 Dragons. When Yoh refused, the Dragons kidnapped him and transformed him into an assassin, one who sheds tears after he kills his targets. Yoh is given the codename Freeman, as a reminder of the freedom which he will never have.
  • For Emu Hino, she was a 29-year-old painter who came from a once-wealthy family. She was vacationing in Hong Kong when she witnessed Freeman assassinate several rival gang members, shedding tears over their bodies. Despite seeing this, Emu fell for Yoh hard. Knowing that she was to die at Freeman's hands, she asks not to die a virgin, a request that Freeman grants. Through a series of events following that event, which included a crooked cop and the Yakuza, she becomes Freeman's wife and the No.2 in the 108 Dragons.
  • It's said that the reason why no woman could ever come to kill Freeman solely because he is in their eyes, the perfect man. Which leads to the alternative: Freeman screwing their brains out. Aside from Emu, Freeman does have a small harem of ladies he has aside from Emu: Dark Eyes (formerly Bugnug), the boss of the Askari, Kimie Hanada, the widow of Ryuji 'The Blade' Hanada, formerly of the Hakushin Society, and Wong Shaku, a computer analyst working for the Pentagon, who is also a member of a prominent Chinese family. Safe to say that Freeman and da missus is well-connected. In a surprising - and touching - gesture, Yoh has also taken in the widow and son of Oshu Togoku and placed them under his protection.
  • You know how a single line from The Rains of Castamere is more than enough to make anyone reconsider rebelling against Tywin Lannister? It's the same for Yoh in regards to his Dragon tattoos. One glimpse of them will be more than enough to make anyone reconsider going against him...most of the time.
  • Yoh and Emu are easy to get along with and are quite pleasant. Just don't piss them off. They're really good at killing people. It's because of the circumstances which led to both of them being part of the 108 Dragons that most of the heroes have conflicting views for both of them. They are, however, in agreement that it was Emu's love for Freeman is what (sort of) redeems him.
  • You think Freeman is deadly with those knives of his, his wife is even worse. After learning swordplay from a master in Kowloon, the Muramasa - known to be a cursed sword - recognizes Emu as its master. Because of this, Emu is very deadly with her sword. Naiji Kumaga, the leader of the Kumagism Bear Cult, found out the hard way, as Emu took him down in two moves: the first costing Naiji his hand, while the second cost him his head.
  • Vega absolutely hates Freeman for the fact that he's a Chick Magnet. He believes that women should be swooning over him. So what if he decides to cut them up afterwards? He still believes that he is still better than Freeman.
  • Freeman is at odds with Balalaika and Hotel Moscow, seeing as how he had wiped out their Japanese contacts with the Russian Connection (Tsunaike and Tanya). Mr. Chang, who serves as the couple's High Priest, is working overtime in trying to keep the peace between the 108 Dragons and Hotel Moscow. Revy, on the other hand, thinks that Yoh is hot.
  • While Emu is already deadly with her Muramasa, she spends time at the House of Weapons' Bladed Weapons training hard to keep her skills in check. However, as she wields a Muramasa, she has drawn the attention of Kisuke Uzuki, who made it his quest to destroy every single demon blade. The only thing that's stopping him is the fact that he does not want to piss off Emu's hubby.
  • Surprisingly, Emu is on friendly terms with both Vergil Sparda and Kenshi Takahashi, with Takeda correctly assuming that the reason why Emu is friends with them (sort of) is due to all three wielding either enchanted or cursed blades.
  • Yoh is also friendly with the Chairman of Dojima, Kazuma Kiryu. As it turns out, Kazuma is a big fan of Yoh's pottery. He is also plenty impressed with the fact that Yoh - being Japanese in origin - is now the head of the Chinese Mafia.
  • Dean Winchester is already a well-known ladies man. But seeing the ladies swoon over Yoh has led to asking him what's his secret. "No secret," Yoh replied.
  • The couple also teaches various art classes at Elysium Academy part-time; Yoh teaches a pottery class while Emu teaches painting. Not only are they doing this for free, but they want to share their passion for the arts. There was talk that the couple was actively recruiting for the 108 Dragons, but that was proven to be false.

Lesser Gods

    Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy 
Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, Holy Guardians of Perfectly Matched Couples (Elizabeth: Mrs. Darcy, Lizzie, Lizzy, Eliza, Lalita Bakshi)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lizziedarcy.jpg
As zombie hunters 
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: Pemberly
  • Theme Song: "Dawn"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good with Chaotic tendencies
  • Portfolio: Couples who have a lot in common, even if they don't admit it at first, insane amount of adaptations, dry wit, learning to be less prideful, also they kill zombies sometimes
  • Domains: Love, Marriage, Pride, Sarcasm, Regency England, (Zombie Slaying)
  • Heralds: Jane and Charles Bingley
  • Allies: Belle and the Beast, Harry and Sally, Twilight Sparkle, Princess Cadance, Shining Armor, Elizabeth and Will Turner, Sam Malone and Diana Chambers, The March Sisters, Anne Shirley, Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Liz Lemon
  • Enemies: House of Undead, Prince Hans
  • Elizabeth was a young woman living in Regency England with ideas ahead of her time, finding the society's customs exasperating and dealing with them with a dry wit. Her path crossed with that of Mr. Darcy, a taciturn, unsociable and elitist man who she immediately found disagreeable, but with whom she had much more in common than she initially thought. After a series of misunderstandings, Darcy changing his attitude for the better and both him and Lizzie learning that first impressions aren't everything, they realized they were made for each other. Because of this, and because their tale continues to enchant, they were selected for the Pantheon.
    • There are quite a few alternate universes of their world; some take place in different time periods, some in different countries. But a special mention needs to be given to an alternate universe where they still go through all of the above... while fighting a war against zombies. For some reason, the Darcys in the Pantheon came in with the abilities (sword-wielding and eastern martial arts) they had in this universe. It certainly helps them to fit in more comfortably, and they may perhaps be of use in taking down Nekron. Although they prefer to speak of this aspect of them as little as possible, as they don't exactly find zombie-slaying an agreeable topic of conversation.
  • Their temple is a recreation of Darcy's country estate, Pemberley.
  • Lizzie is a known bookworm, and probably the most intelligent person from her family. Darcy admires these characteristics of hers and also likes books himself, as he takes great pride in his family's collection of books. They frequently peruse the House of Knowledge's library for interesting books. This habit got them first acquainted with Belle and the Beast, who're fond of books themselves. Both couples learned that their respective love stories have a lot in common, in that the male halfs started off with very unpleasant personalities, which they overcame thanks to the influence of their kind but strong-willed love interests.
    • Lizzie also became friends with Twilight Sparkle, who proceeded to read Pride and Prejudice and loved it so much, she just had to sing its praises to her sister-in-law Princess Cadance, thinking she'd certainly approve of Lizzie and Darcy's love. She wasn't wrong, as the princess and her husband Shining Armor requested to meet them and became fast friends.
    • Jo March and Anne Shirley are other book lovers who've loved meeting such an important literary heroine. Lizzie has noted how similar Jo and Anne are to herself in that they're all Spirited Young Ladies who don't strictly conform to society's expectations. She also thinks that Jo's family reflects hers in some aspects, like how Jo's good relationship with her Cool Big Sis and Proper Lady Meg is akin to what Lizzie has with Jane, as well as both Lizzie and Jo having had to tolerate an Annoying Younger Sibling, though at least Amy got better and Lizzie unfortunately can't say the same of Lydia.
  • Their tale's status as one of the codifiers for romantic comedies earns them much respect from the House of Love in general, and especially from certain specific couples like Harry and Sally, who also didn't have the smoothest path to true love, Sam Malone and Diana Chambers, who also bicker a lot, and Elizabeth and Will Turner, the former of whom has been noticed to have a resemblance to Lizzie sometimes.
  • They cannot abide those who affect affability while being rotten on the inside. Back in the mortal world, Lizzie had to deal with being duped by Wickham into believing him to be the victim of Mr. Darcy, when in truth, Wickham had cheated him out of money and attempted to seduce his sister out of pettiness. While Wickham isn't in the Pantheon, Hans of the Southern Isles is remarkably similar to him. The Darcys despise him for seducing Anna with a view to steal her sister's throne and then trying to dispose of them both. They're both glad that Anna learned a lesson of not jumping into relationships with men she barely knows from the ordeal.
  • Mr. Darcy can't walk by the House of Memes without hearing someone yelling "Ooh, Mr. Darcy". Both he and Lizzie had to blush upon learning the meaning of the meme. Given the impropriety of the subject in their eyes, entreatments to tell of whether their marital relations are that good have been met with refusal. Well, that's in public. When in the privacy of their temple, they have a good laugh over the whole thing.
  • Lizzie and Darcy were some of the sanest and most practical people among their social circles, being able to see the long-term consequences of actions that no one else can or is willing to. They are well-liked by Liz Lemon, Stan Marsh and Kyle Broflovsky for this reason, as they're also sensible people who have to deal with those who act borderline crazy on a regular basis.
    • Stan and Kyle weren't really sure they wanted to be seen hanging out with deities from a romantic novel, but they got over it once they saw that Lizzie and Darcy weren't exactly Sickeningly Sweethearts, and besides, they're reasonable adults, a sight that's sadly rare in South Park. Stan and Kyle also sympathize with Lizzie for having to put up with Amazingly Embarrassing Parents like they do. Doesn't stop Cartman from making fun of them, though.
    • Liz, meanwhile, is a bit frustrated that Lizzie is basically a housewife despite being well-read, but she supposes it can't be helped given the time period she comes from. She thinks it's totally awesome whenever Lizzie is in zombie hunter mode though.

  • In General:
    • Robert's Rebellion was kicked off with the deaths of Rickard and Brandon Stark. But depending on who you ask, people will tell you different things in regards to the Bard Prince and the She-Wolf of Winterfell. Robert claims that Lyanna was taken against her will. Ser Barristan Selmy says otherwise, that she came with him willingly. With the ascension of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark into the Pantheon, the matter was settled once and for all.
    • So how does the Bard Prince and the She-Wolf of Winterfell fit in all of this? It all began at the tourney at Harrenhal, of which Rhaegar himself was participating, and Lyanna herself was in attendance. Upon being named the winner of the tourney, Rhaegar names Lyanna the Queen of Love and Beauty, rather than his wife, Elia Martell. Whoops.
    • In fact, it was confirmed by Lyanna herself that she had went willingly with Rhaegar. Her hotheaded brother, Brandon Stark, blew it out of proportion when he went to King's Landing to challenge Rhaegar. Actually, his words were "Come out and die!" This would lead to not only his demise, but that of his father as well on the orders of the Mad King.
    • Eddard Stark did not take into consideration that Jon Snow - now revealed to be his nephew, rather than his bastard son - finding out the truth about his lineage not from his aunt Daenerys, but rather, his parents when Jon Snow was summoned to their temple. Of course, as King of the North, with this revelation, Jon realizes that he is ice and fire.
    • With the exception of Varys (who already knew), Petyr Baelish, Robert Baratheon, his brother Renly, Tywin Lannister and his three children were shocked once the truth was known that Lyanna was the mother of Jon Snow, rather than a supposed hookup Ned had with some wench in the waning days of the Rebellion. What shocked them the most was that Ned Stark himself was privy to Jon's origins. Upon finding out from Dany, Tyrion Lannister was seen laughing his ass off in schadenfreud-tastic hilarity over the fact that Eddard Stark, of all people, was able to keep the secret of Jon's heritage for 17 years, fooling the major players in the game of thrones, his father included.
      • It also vindicates Ned, in a way. Rhaegar and Lyanna both appreciate the sacrifice that Ned had made, sacrificing his honor in making all of Westeros believe that Jon was his bastard, rather than the song of ice and fire. Lyanna can almost imagine the reaction from Catelyn Stark once the truth is revealed, as she knows of the ill treatment her son has been given. thanks to her.
    • Caligua has earned the ire of both Rhaegar and Lyanna, not to mention their respective siblings due to his comments about wanting to fuck Lyanna. Now, the mad emperor keeps his distance, lest he finds himself either bisected by Ice or burned alive by Dany's dragons.
    • The Greek Pantheon (and Kratos) see some similarities in regards to the supposed abduction of Lyanna by Rhaegar, as Hades had kidnapped Persephone to make her his Queen. It's left for debate on whether or not it's a coincidence.
  • Exclusive To Rhaegar:
    • The first thing that Oberyn Martell did upon meeting his brother-in-law was to slug him in the face. Rhaegar had it coming due to his actions which led to Robert's Rebellion. What surprised Oberyn was that Rhaegar owned up to his sins in regards to him cheating on Elia. It took Oberyn a while, but he buried the hatchet with his brother-in-law.
    • As he is known as the Bard Prince, he can be seen in his temple, playing his harp. It is said that he can move a woman to tears with his playing, a fact proven by several of the female deities that pass by. So much so that he holds concerts inside his temple for the female (and some male) guests. Just don't insult his harp playing around Lyanna. She has a mean right hook.
    • Spends a lot of time at the House of Prophecy due to the prophecy in regards to the prophecy regarding The Prince That Was Promised. Basically, the prophecy states that the Prince will deliver the world from darkness. Rhaegar was thought to have been the chosen one, but a terminal case of warhammer-to-the-chest brought that to a halt. Some says that the Prince was supposed to be his son with Elia Martell, Aegon VI. Ned Stark believes that the Prince will come from the Pact of Ice and Fire, in which a Targaryen princess is to be betrothed to a male Stark. However, with the reveal that Jon Snow is his and Lyanna's son, it seems that Jon is the Prince foretold...although rather than a Targaryen princess and a male Stark, the genders were reversed.
    • Berates his father for not heeding the warnings of the House of Prophecy. While Rhaegar owns up to his faults, Aerys is adamant that he was not wrong in his actions in barbecuing and strangling Ned Stark's father and brother. The fact that it was Cassandra of all people who prophesied his family's downfall really, ''reallu
    • Rhaegar is none too pleased with the Lannisters. Sure his dad was a total dick in refusing a betrothal contract between himself and Cersei ("A man does not marry his heir to his servant's daughter"), but Tywin crossed the line when not only he ordered King's Landing to be sacked, but also the murder of his children and wife. Granted that Tywin ordered the deaths of only Aegon VI and Rhaenys, apparently, Gregor Cleagne did not get that memo. He did however, got a real good laugh over how the Lion of the Rock had met his end at the hands of Tyrion. Even Lyanna said that he had it coming.
    Tyrion: "But the stink that filled the privy gave ample evidence that the oft-repeated jape about my father was just another lie. In the end, my father did not shit gold.''
    • Actually met Arthas Menethil. The meeting left Rhaegar shaken, as it showed what could happen if he succumbed to the Targaryen madness.
  • Exclusive To Lyanna:
    • Sure enough, Robert Baratheon had came to Lyanna, professing his eternal love and devotion. To which Lyanna replies if Robert would be loyal to her, forsaking his wine and whores. Robert had no answer to that. He was seen inside his temple, getting shit-faced, the totality of the truth sinking in. The rebellion was All for Nothing. That hurt him even more than Cersei's actions that led to the War of Five Kings. The House of Lust saw massive profits that day.
    • Cersei Lannister hates all Starks, but it's Lyanna who takes the No.1 spot with a crossbow bolt. For Robert, Lyanna was The One That Got Away. The fact that Robert called her by Lyanna's name on their wedding night didn't help matters either.
    • Lyanna, for lack of a better term, is a tomboy. Ned said that she, like Brandon, was "wolf-blooded," meaning that she was "headstrong, willful, courageous and hot-tempered." Had Rickard Stark allowed it, Lyanna would have trained with the sword. She was also a skilled rider, and loved winter roses. Tywin Lannister's brother, Kevan, notes that Lyanna was a "wild beauty."
    • Somehow, Lyanna made friends with Koku-oh, the God of Horses. Yes, Lyanna is friends with Raoh's elephant-sized horse. While Raoh won't allow Lyanna to ride his steed, he is impressed with how Koku-Oh warmed up to Lyanna. "The girl has spirit," Raoh compliments.
  • As the sigil of the Stark family is the direwolf, it's no surprise to Rhaegar that Lyanna has made friends with Bigby Wolf and his wife, Snow White. Lyanna is a sucker for kids, seeing as how Bigby and Snow's children warmed up to her right away.
    Petyr Baelish: Prince Rhaegar loved his Lady Lyanna, and thousands died for it.

  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: A pipe bomb
  • Alignments: Neutral Good (Sarah became more True Neutral in the second film)
  • Portfolios: Shell-Shocked Veterans, Badass Normals
  • Domains: Protection, Love, Family
  • Followers: Kate & Leopold, Henry and Clare, Tim Lake and Mary, Phil and Keely

  • Enemies: SkyNet, The Original Terminator, T-1000, The House of Technology, but especially Dr. Eggman, Megatron, Starscream
  • Rivals:
  • Conflicting Opinion: Robocop
  • Part of the reason why it has been difficult to ascend the two is with their convoluted history. One timeline had the two as adults, while another timeline had a slightly younger Sarah. Tired of the ambiguous timelines, The Doctor sought to end it once and for all. In the end, he managed to fix the time continuum. Sarah and Kyle survived the initial encounter with the T-800 and entered the Pantheon shortly afterwards.
  • Tend to distrust all forms of machinery in order to prevent Skynet from happening in the Pantheon. The two have been subsequently banned from the House of Technology after it was ransacked.
    • The two have their eyes set on Eggman, as they see him as the one most likely to set off an event similar to Skynet.
    • Robocop has been assigned to guard the House of Technology from further meddling. The two are are not sure what to think of this super cop. There is the chance that the Machines can corrupt his systems, but there is definitely some for of humanity left in him. They're sure to keep an eye on him for now.
    • The sole exception of course is the T-800. The former Terminator may not show it in its mechanical mouth, but many theorize it is most pleased with the couple's ascension.
  • Neither expected to have a temple in the House of Love of all places. Still, the House appreciates the additional firepower the couple possesses. Kagome in particular became one of their closes allies in the House, talking with them about her relationship with Inuyasha.
  • Although wary of Optimus Prime, they agreed to focus their efforts on the Decepticons. Megatron has them on his sights as the first humans to crush once victorious.
  • Kyle
    • Turns out he wasn't the only god sent from the future. He was visited by a purple haired saiyan wielding a sword. The two sat down to chat on their adventures as well as the troubles of dealing with living in the past. With a smile on his face, Trunks paid a small tribute before leaving. Kyle simply grinned back, happy to find some companionship.
    • Solid Snake made a surprising visit to the temple to talk to Kyle. Turns out he arrived to thank him for being the inspiration of his Metal Gear Solid NES cover. It wasn't long before the two realized just how many similarities the two shared.
  • Sarah:
    • Lucked out of the Action Mom title to Crimson Viper, ending up as the High Priestess. Her time there was rather strenuous, as Viper's reliance on technology to fight unnerved her.
  • Is best friends with Ellen Ripley, who ascended shortly after her. The two are seen as one of the most recognizable Action Girls in film.
    • Was sought out by Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott who were impressed with her evasion of the Terminators. Sarah offered her protection from the evil horror gods.
    • Gained the approval of Belle when the princess thanked her for playing her in a little known TV series.
    • Once she learned of a timeline where John was killed before her eyes by a Terminator, she got really depressed and said that dying of cancer but certain that he'd live was preferrable. Still, Sarah has made 'For John' into a motto to prevent such tragedies.
    • There was yet another different timeline that depicted her and her mortal son preparing for Skynet. Although it was well-received by various gods, footage of these chronicles was cut shot. The Pantheon is searching for more footage of this timeline - a project that Cersei Lannister leads for unclear reasons.

Ichiro Sato and Ryoko Sato, Divine Couple of Separations and Later Reconciliations (Ichiro: Koga Maryuin)

  • Alignment: Neutral Good

  • Enemies: Bullies in general, the House of Tainted Love (except for Erina Joestar)
  • Conflicting Opinion: Homer and Bart Simpson, Sam Malone and Diane Chambers, Ross Geller and Rachel Greene
  • Break-Up/Make-Up Scenario has been a staple in character-driven storytelling since time immemorial, as it serves to test the strength of the heroes' feelings, and to make the audience wonder whether they’ll come back together and have a Happy Ending. Problem is, this scenario is used so often in fiction that it would be easy to expect it whenever a story focuses on the relation of the couple. Over years, it went from a major plot twist to a convention, or even a cliché. The Pantheon's higher-ups debated who would be the most appropriate holder for this trope. Fortunately, they didn't have to search for long, as Ichiro and Ryoko proved to be the right candidates.
  • Their story was one of the most poignant to ever happen: after a traumatic experience with his chuunibyou past, Ichiro attempted to be normal, until he met Ryoko, who still harbored the same fantasies he previously indulged into. At first, Ichiro tries to keep up her distance from Ryoko but learns to grow closer to her. Things go south when a Gang of Bullies found out about Ichiro's chuunibyou past and threatened tell everyone about unless Ichiro abandoned Ryoko. As you can expect, this caused a lot of grief to both Ichiro, who goes through a period of self-loathing, and Ryoko, who got tired of the real world and wanted to live in her fantasies forever. Fortunately, Ichiro reached out to Ryoko and promises to her that they will confront reality together. Among cheers of celebration and Tears of Joy, Ichiro and Ryoko ascended.
  • Ichiro and Ryoko quickly became friends with Kaito Kirishima and Ichika Takatsuki, who weren't all that different from them, aside from one tiny detail. They enjoy going on double dates, which involve exploring exotic places, eating fancy meals, watching movies and playing video games. Another couple fond of Ichiro and Ryoko were Harry and Sally, who were shocked that despite their young age, Ichiro and Ryoko endured a harsher and more difficult experience to reaffirm their relationship. Harry and Sally ultimately decided to become their mentors in the ways of love, but there are times when Ichiro and Ryoko come off as more mature and reasonable than their adult counterparts, at least, they don't complain as much whenever they visit the House of Food.
  • Ichiro and Ryoko were amazed by the existence of magic, space travel and epic adventures in the Pantheon, as they were the things they fantasized about in their chuunibyou days. Many feared their stay in the Pantheon would cause Ichiro and Ryoko to have a relapse, but fortunately, no such thing has happened. As a method of precaution, Haruto Tsukishiro offered them the chance to visit the dreamscape, where they could live out their fantasies in a healthy manner. While Ichiro and Ryoko accepted the opportunity and visit the dreamscape as much as they are able, they have come to understand that dreams are only valid if people have the will to make them a reality, much to Haruto's satisfaction, as that was the lesson he was trying to teach them.
  • Their stay in the Pantheon have earned them friendships in gods who teach them lessons about life. For example: Mario taught them to seek joy in their activities, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda taught them to appreciate the bond they made, even Trip and Grace confided in them the many mistakes they have made in their marriage and advised them not to repeat them. Also, their chosen trope earned the friendship of Yuya Sakaki and Yuzu Hiiragi, whose relationship was an important factor in their series; not to mention as hard as their experience was, Ichiro and Ryoko didn't suffer through a war between dimensions.
    • They also befriended Samurai Jack and Ashi. More specifically, Ichiro connected with Jack because of their struggles to overcome depression while Ashi was worried that Ryoko could have lost her life in the climax of her story and gave her some words of support.
  • They don't like bullies. Bullying is not acceptable. Bullies are the reason why they broke up in the first place. Any bullies shall earn Ichiro and Ryoko's eternal enmity. Hearing of their experience with bullies, Yugi and Pharaoh Atem were quick to befriend the young lovers and invite them to their card games. Their attitude earn them Chihiro Fujisaki's sympathies, as bullies caused him to develop a meek demeanor and deep rooted issues regarding his own strength.
  • Ichiro and Ryoko's problems in the mortal plane were not at all helped by the ineptitude shown by their parents. The Heroic Protectors of Family took pity on the young lovers and placed them under their collective protection, giving them solance and counsel whenever they need it.
    • They faced a moral dilemma when confronting Homer and Bart Simpson, who shared one of the most dysfunctional father-son relationships in the Pantheon. Unable to decide who was the perpetrator and who the victim, given both were prone to episodes of sudden Jerkassery, Ichiro and Ryoko consulted the Heroic Protectors of Family and agreed to let the Simpsons to their devices, much like Mario had done before them.
  • They are confused as to why Sam Malone and Diane Chambers share the same temple even if their relationship ultimately didn't work, not to mention they can barely spend five minutes without having some pointless argument. While there is hope for Sam and Diane to improve their relationship, the young lovers still keep their distance from them, as they have a very turbulent relationship and that's the last thing the young lovers need at the moment.
    • Their encounter with Ross Geller and Rachel Greene even more awkward. Aware that Ross and Rachel took their relationship problems into decades-long absurdity, Ichiro and Ryoko said that they were glad they finally got their act together but they kinda expect they would break up, as their relationship looked kinda toxic and damaging after ten years. Offended by such comment, Ross and Rachel haven't contacted the young lovers since.
  • Before anyone asks, they are not related. Their similar last names are just a coincidence, so don't get any funny ideas. Many deities have joked that if they ever tie the knot, Ryoko will at least have the benefit of going by her maiden's name.
  • Exclusive to Ichiro:
    • Ichiro was amazed to find that, as hard as his situation was, it was nothing compared to Shido Itsuka's duty to protect the Spirits. Needless to say, a friendship bloomed between Ichiro, Shido, Haruto and Kaito, motivated in no small part to their attitudes and voices. Still, Ichiro can't help but think that Shido, Kaito and Haruto have the same situations that he only experienced through his chuunibyou fantasies.
    • While is not what most people would call an everyman, Ichiro still gets along fine with those that fit the archetype, like Spider-Man and Yuu Haruna, as he can relate to their love problems, well except for one thing. He is also friends with regular men chosen by destiny to become heroes like Link, who accepts his heroic destiny with dignity and honor, and Luke Skywalker, who always wanted to be part of something greater than himself. By the time Ichiro earned Luke's trust, the Jedi shared his darkest secret: in a rare moment of fear and distrust, he attempted to kill his nephew, with disastrous consequences for the galaxy. Ichiro, while naturally unnerved by such revelation, understood where Luke was coming from and that he had tried to fix things. Hopefully, it will all work out just fine.
  • Exlusive to Ryoko
    • Because of her shyness and awkward demeanor, Ryoko had trouble making friends in the Pantheon. That changed, however, when she came across Fuuka Akitsuki, who was exhausted from a singing practice and met Ryoko when they visited a restaurant in the House of Food. Fuuka was able to break through Ryoko's shell and they related on many things, such as their love problems and desire for self-improvement. Tohka Yatogami, having received an invitation from Fuuka, joined them for dinner. At first, Ryoko was a bit scared from Tohka, as she had the same voice of one of the people who bullied her, while Tohka was confused that Ryoko spoke with the voice of Rinne Sonogami. Fortunately, Tohka earned her trust fairly quickly and the three have been inseparable ever since.
    • Honoka Mitsui, having heard of Ryoko's problems, came to console her and gave her support in anything she needs to improve her relationship with Ichiro. She even said that while Ryoko speaks like Mayumi Saegusa, she behaves like Kokoa Watatsumi. Ryoko earned similar support from Mayuri, who loves Shido enough to sacrifice her life for him. Knowing she would have likely died had Ichiro not reached her in time, Ryoko thanks her new friends for believing in her.

    Sam Malone and Diane Chambers

  • Demideities
  • Symbol: The Cheers sign
  • Theme Song: Where Everybody Knows Your Name
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (Sam); Neutral Good (Diane)
  • Portfolios: Snarky guy meets Haughty gal, All Girls Want Bad Boys, Slap-Slap-Kiss, One True Love
  • Domains: Love, Madness, Destruction, Chaos (Sam), Good (Diane)
  • Allies: Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, Anne Shirley, Charlie Harper (Sam)
  • Rivals: The ''Seinfeld'' Group, The ''Friends'' Crew, Moe Szyslak (Sam)
  • Admires: Peter Warne and Ellie Andrews
  • Pities by: Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu, Sheldon Cooper
  • Special Relationship: Fraiser Crane
  • When talking about romances that keep teasing whether they will happen, few of them are as notable as between Sam Malone and Diane Chambers. Some may have found it annoying, but there was no doubt that this laid the groundwork for future flirting between two main characters. Once ascended they took off where they left off, flirting with each other. It is particularly awkward as the two failed to permanently hook up as a couple.
    • Many in the House of Romance balked at the prospect at taking in the couple. Many pointed out at how self destructive their relationship was towards each other. It also put that House in a pickle; where could they put the couple? The prospect of being sent to the Tainted Love section was frightening to the both of them. In the end, it was decided they would be sent to the Couples Relationships section. It was hoped that the two could take cues from various couples in that subhouse to improve their own relationship.
  • Things were tense when Sam and Frasier eventually met face to face. It was little wonder that Sam was on edge during the meeting, as Sam was responsible for his breakup with Diane. Frasier merely stated that he has made peace with that mistake, though he laments about having to deal with the two of them continue to deny their love for each other. It's safe to say that he will not become their therapist to sort things through.
  • As the God of Sitcoms, the Ricardos were happy to have successfully brought one of the most famous comedies of all time into the fold. The two turn to them for advice on how to deal with each other. This usually happens with the same gender talking to each other. Hilarity Ensues when they both find out about their partner's schemes.
  • The Seinfeld group took things differently. Sam found his temple defiled with spray paint saying "Seinfeld #1". Thus began a series of pranks between the two groups with no end in sight. It is especially personal as the two come from rival cities.
  • The only group that may have a comparable romantic progression may be Ross and Rachel. Their sexual tension lasted the entire show with some people getting tired of it going on.
  • Sam initially applied for The Bartender... and was annoyed that the position was already taken by Moe Szyslak. In retaliation, he decided to set up his own bar just like in his mortal world. It was a decent hit, taking customers away from Moe. Things are likely to heat up as long as the two of them keep their bars.
  • After an adventure too wild in the subhouse of Lust, the deities there decided to put him in a sex addiction therapy in the House of Philosophy. Hosted by Wonder Woman, she put him on her lasso to tell him how she felt. His reply was "So... do you like Chinese food?" He was subsequently kicked out of the house until they could find a proper God of Therapists to help him out.
  • Was a lot more haughty before a series on unfortunate incidents caused her to tone it down. Fuyuhiko knew how that could feel and was there to greet her and talk about those instances. In the end the two of them felt better about themselves.
  • Peter and Ellie decided to have a go at it. The two were at each other throats during a road trip before it blossomed into a romance. It turned out to be rather successful. Sam may not be the traveling type, but he was impressed with how they managed to deal with each other. Diane loved Ellie's stories as a socialite.
  • Few people would turn to them for romantic advice, but that's exactly what Anne Shirley did when he met up with them. She wanted advice on what to do with Gilbert, her academic rival. She wondered how Gilbert was able to forgive her even after she threw away the apology. A snide remark on Sam's part on women's stuffiness later, Diane chalked it up to hidden feelings for the man. To her, the reason they are so antagonistic towards each other is that they have yet to accept that a relationship between the two just might work out. She's proud that Anne was able to figure it out in time.
  • Sam likes to hang out with Charlie Harper who turns out to be a reliable wingman. All bets are off whenever they both see a hot woman.
  • Diane likes to act like the smartest person in the room... bringing out plenty of derision from said room. One day she was confronted by Sheldon Cooper. He sympathized with her having to deal with "bottom feeders". It looked like a beautiful friendship... until he began to belittle her too. It didn't take long before she found herself back at Cheers restaurant, promising not to brag as much.

  • Enemies: AUTO, HAL 9000, Syndrome, Omega, GLaDOS
  • Opposes: Sora Shiun'in, Ato-ko Shirogane
  • It is something of a rare occurance to witness machines having feelings towards each other. This was the case with WALL•E and EVE, as a relationship between them grew during their journey.
  • The entire Pantheon has unanimously agreed that any attempt to usurp, attack, or demean WALL•E and EVE's positions in the Pantheon will result in a horrible, HORRIBLE demise. Most likely by EVE.
    • This is also the reason why many, including the two, are wary about Ato-ko Shirogane interfering with them. So far, she has decided not to get involved with the two, but measures are in place in case anything happens.
  • Friends with fellow deity Chance the Gardener and his companion Eve Rand. It's probably coincidental, but deities wonder…
  • The two sometimes "dance" across the Pantheon, with many aspiring lovers take as a sign of eternal love and devotion to one another. They can sometimes be listening to some old "Hello Dolly!" videos and singing to the song "Put on your Sunday Clothes".
  • WALL•E is known to be very curious with many of the items in the Pantheon and sometimes just wanders about picking up little knick-knacks and such. Many of the gods don't mind, and even if they did, EVE is close by with her gun ready.
  • The two were surprised to hear that EVE had some similarities when talking in Japanese with some of the other deities. While friendly with most of them, the one they have issues with is Sora Shuin'in as the latter's attempts at acting cute for his own gain is off-putting to them.
  • The two naturally weren't happy to hear that there are plenty of robots in the Pantheon that are far less kind than the ones from their world, such as Omega.
    • However, the two seem to be in good company with Haro as its behavior reminds them of their own robot companions from their journey.
  • They have been asked as to whether or not Syndrome is using BnL for his future plans. Given what his past actions were like, the two robots can only hope the rumor is false and they also disapprove of his actions.
  • The two were surprised to see a not only new temple built within their own subhouse, but also that it was a deity couple for Human and Robot love. The two were immediately fascinated by Kosmo and Nova and became fast friends with them, especially seeing how they were also experts in space travel as well.

  • Annoyed by: Kaito Kid
  • Abhorrent Admirer(s): Any single cops in the Pantheon (Sato)
  • A lot of eyebrows were raised when Conan Edogawa filed an application to ascend one of his allies, whereas the previous Detective Conan deities ascended based on their own merit. Everyone assumed it was Juzo Megure, an inspector at the homicide unit of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department who was ascending under the trope Inspector Lestrade, but it turned out Megure was already in talks with the Trope Namer himself. Mr. G. Lestrade bargained Megure down to being his high priest. The officers Conan was actually having ascended were his two subordinates, couple Wataru Takagi and Miwako Sato under Almost Kiss. The House of Love rejoiced as Takagi and Sato joined their ranks. Sato and Takagi promptly applied for recruitment at the Pantheon's police force that was slowly being built up in the 77th Precinct, amid 'informal concerns'.
  • In the early stages of their relationship, every time they attempted to go for The Big Damn Kiss, anyone, absolutely anyone would unknowingly interrupt them, be it Megure, a fellow cop or Conan. Even though the kiss did come to pass in Episode 535/Manga Volume 64, this rule still applies. While progress on their relationship was slow since both had their own trials and tribulations, it eventually did blossom into a full-on romance.
  • Their knowledge of the Black Organization and Conan's true identity is a chaotic affair. In fact, they entered the Pantheon because of the Organization. They were tailing a low-ranked Black Organization operative as his superiors were making a move to the Pantheon. but he lagged behind long enough to murder an unsuspecting witness. Sato and Takagi entered the House of Crime via a secondary gateway (the main Organization party was attacking the Janus Checkpoints). They later found his body in a nearby alley riddled with bullets courtesy of Chianti and alerted a nearby officer, who turned out to be one of Commissioner Gordon's men patrolling. You know what comes next.
  • Applies to both of them:
    • Sato doesn't want her mother to know of her relationship with Takagi. This is in spite of the fact that Mrs. Sato worries for how her daughter is past the prime age for marriage and is trying to force her into marriage with other men as a result. Sato has her reasons, and whatever they are, Takagi respects them. Mrs. Sato does have a legitimate reason to be concerned: she wants her daughter to marry a well-off and financially stable man which Takagi certainly is not.
    • They have met quite a lot of opposition with regards to their relationship. While most of Sato's problems are merely frivolous jabs and teases from her colleague Yumi Miyamoto (angsty over being the only single person in her circle of friends), Takagi has it a lot worse. Most of his male colleagues also love Sato to the point that they regularly intimidate and interrogate Takagi on the progress of their romance, even forming a lobbying group to boycott their dates. Commander Vimes, a senior officer of the House of Justice expressed concern for this, seeing as how the 77th Precinct is not the Tokyo MPD, and many corrupt and outright sociopathic officers exist in the Pantheon like Jigsaw's herald Mark Hoffman. It's not as serious as in their homeworld, but Takagi is still facing minimal resistance from his new colleagues.
    • They're very sexually active, but obviously for privacy reasons, they never advertise this or discuss it in public. This has happened often enough for Takagi to think his girlfriend was pregnant when in reality she had merely lost her red police badge. This hasn't stopped nosy deities in the Pantheon (specifically those watching the show) from asking. Don't Ask what happened to them, let's just say broaching the subject insensitively is one of the few ways to make Takagi angry.
    • Their colleagues occupy pretty much the same positions as they did in their homeworlds. Yumi's been finding more ways to tease the couple on their relationship (when she's not off on traffic duty with Naeko), and Chiba's still working on his budding romance with Officer Miike (which unlike Sato and Takagi's is just beginning). Shiratori, who once led the lobbying group opposing their relationship, is now opposing those very same people. It's obvious he'd rather be doing anything else, but now that he's in a committed relationship with Sumiko Kobayashi, he takes it as his duty to make others stop bothering his colleagues. Then again, the Metropolitan Police Love Detective Love Stories showcase enough of their romantic journey for their colleagues to bother them about, to the point it may have reached Never Live It Down levels of embarassment.
    • As with all deities in the Pantheon, the mandate regarding Conan's darkest secret applies to them, more so as denizens of Conan's homeworld. However, the fact that their ascension was caused by a BO operative was too important to ignore. They were allowed to retain this initial knowledge upon ascension, since they know nothing about said member being part of the Black Organization or its existence. Nevertheless, Conan worries for their safety in the Pantheon, since their status as his staunch allies renders them helpless if the Organization discovers his true identity. Alleged Organization member and police superintendent Hyoue Kuroda is similarly looking out for them, but leaves matters to their direct superior and herald Megure. Thankfully, plenty of matters come up that keep them away from Organization-related crimes.
    • For professional law enforcers, they place an awful lot of trust in a six to seven-year old kid. They can clearly see his above-average intelligence even though he's Kogoro Mouri's 'apprentice'. During their investigations, they frequently listen to his counsel and feed him classified information from time to time. For some reason, they haven't been caught or reprimanded for such actions in their world, but they have in the Pantheon, but for different reasons. Unlike in their world, high-ranking officers like Vimes and Gordon know exactly why they trust Conan so much, so they've warned Sato and Takagi to refrain from doing so. Their more hardliner colleagues could easily report them.
    • In a place like the Pantheon, there was bound to be children that reminded them of the Detective Boys, most conspicuously Dipper and Mabel Pines. They first met the Pines twins when they were called to a murder scene at a House of Family diner by an entire host of witnesses (which included Grunkle Stan, one of the Pines' heralds), with the description given of a short, dwarf-like figure. Dipper persistently tried to help them with his journal despite opposition from the rest of the police team, and Sato allowed him to give his two cents on what was going on.
      • Resolution: Turns out that Yuuki Terumi, who seems to get off on causing havoc, no matter petty and unbecoming of his title, fed Shmebulock, a gnome from the Gravity Falls forest an entire litre of Wonka Buttergin, which left him drunk, delirious and murderous. The deaths were caused by him. Before they could take Shmebulock into custody however, military police from the Grand United Alliance of Good came in. They claimed that since Terumi had committed the crime on behalf of his team, the GUAE Trollkaiger, it was an Alliance affair now. The entire team wasn't happy but was forced to go along with it. They still maintain regular contact with the twins when in their immediate vicinity, and Sato absolutely loves to pet Waddles.
    • As a cop couple, they have working relationships with others of their ilk, including Jacob Peralta and Amy Santiago. Since married officers cannot serve in the same division, they work with Santiago in Homicide more while Jake works in Organized Crime. Sato can personally respect her competitive spirit and dedication to Captain Raymond Holt. Both of them are more than a little amused at the extravagant personas Amy takes on when she's drunk. Yumi, ever the teaser, sometimes gives Amy new alcohol brands off-duty just to watch the fun. Amy once took on a very Scottish persona when Yumi gave her a scotch (and played makeshift bagpipes for a full thirty minutes.)
    • They have similarly warm feelings for Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, They first met when a string of grisly murders erupted around the House of Beast. The quartet performed a raid on a Night Howler warehouse in the area and arrested seventeen suspects who were hired by amoral Professor Hojo. The mastermind himself managed to escape, though not before filling the room with a gaseous form of the serum which infected Nick. Nick managed to hold himself back from fatally injuring Takagi long enough to be sedated, while Sato took care of a ravaged Takagi. Thankfully, Asia Argento's treatment managed to prevent a costly resurrection fee in the House of Life and Death. Since then, they've met once a month to go to a double date (Judy's and Nick's in a platonic sense) to a Gazelle concert (and a Yoko Okino one once).
    • Unlike some police officers, they don't have any unfavourable biases towards private detectives, looking up to some of them as far more honourable than their own colleagues. Most pertinent to their work so far is Ryotaro Dojima (considering how much Persona-related crimes take place in the Pantheon). The three all have some lingering trauma from That One Case and the subsequent jadedness impeded their lives, though Ryotaro had it a lot worse than them. Oddly enough, they've been the ones to help him improve his relationship with his daughter in the Pantheon despite not yet being married themselves.
    • They are appalled by the corruption of the police force in the Pantheon. Granted, it's not nearly as bad as in places like Gotham and Basin City, but the sudden change from the highly professional and clean Tokyo MPD forced them to step up their game. This is especially so since deities Made of Evil exist in the Pantheon, such as Nyarlathotep who they vehemently oppose on the idea that Humans Are the Real Monsters. They don't enjoy violent approaches to crime either, and are dead-set on capturing and rehabilitating John Wick. They can sympathize with Jet Black for leaving his corrupt police department in response, but since he's a bounty hunter, they often come to blows. Police officers like Chun-Li and Lei Wulong have similar philosophies, with the latter attempting to convince them to join the Delta Cops. They politely refused.
  • Exclusive to Takagi:
    • Like all the officers in Detective Conan, Wataru Takagi is a morally upstanding individual who views even the most minor of crimes as absolute blasphemy. He is characterized as the Shrinking Violet to Sato's Tomboy, yet is the police officer in his unit who has received the most near-death experiences, ranging from being held hostage by a criminal multiple times, kidnapped because of a case of Mistaken Identity and trapped in a tower with a ticking time bomb. This still holds true in the Pantheon.
    • He's a nervous and insecure fellow, which tends to make criminals underestimate him. In reality, he is one of the most dedicated officers in the police force, with a self-sacrificing trait that as stated before, gets him in a lot of near-fatal incidents. Many heroes in the House of Heroes can respect this trait and like with a number of other deities, consider him an honorary member of their house. None more so than Spider-Man and Clark Kent, who see his desire to get at the full truth of a crime and catch the true culprit mirroring Conan's. Clark, being a meek man in his civilian self masking a confident and brave hero underneath, likes Takagi for his strong conviction and bravery in duty but warns him to be wary:
    Clark: There's a fine line between bravery and recklessness, Takagi-san. Don't be that guy.
  • Exclusive to Sato:
    • Sato has endured much heartbreak in her life. Her father Masayoshi, a well-liked police superintendent, was killed in a traffic accident while escorting a bank robber to jail. This traumatic event would greatly scar her and her family and spur her to become a police officer in his stead. Hence, like most other law-abiding figures in the world of Detective Conan, she views all crimes, including petty thievery and kidnapping as complete blasphemy.
    • She absolutely detests serial bombers, terrorists and pyromaniacs in the Pantheon. This is because her partner and First Love Jinpei Matsuda died in a Ferris wheel bombing, cementing her belief that she was a "bad omen", and repeatedly tried to stop Takagi from courting her to prevent him from dying, as much as she loved him. While she has since moved past the trauma of the incident, she is determined to ensure that such tragedies never befall others in the Pantheon. One of the objects of her hate is Garfield Lynns, a madman who loves setting fire to anything and everything.
    • When she first entered the 77th Precinct, she was slightly apprehensive about entering deep friendships with anyone else due to her unfamiliarity with the environment. She would find many veterans willing to help her get oriented with the craziness of the Pantheon, some of which would become close friends.
      • Kyoko Kirigiri, originally a private detective in the House of Costumes, had graduated from the police academy soon before Sato's ascension, and was assigned to her as an intern officer. She has since become one of Sato's closest partners, and her unofficial protege. Sato is very impressed by Kyoko's detective skills, stating that they exceeded some other teenage detectives she knew given that her family's detective trade had lasted for decades. Sato is a tad disturbed by her habit of examining corpses though.
      • She had seen Batman in action quite a few times, especially when Scarecrow gassed the House of Emotion with a new version of his fear gas. But it isn't him that she's enamoured by. It's Batgirl. The Joker is among the highest on the "Most Wanted" list in the House of Justice, and Barbara Gordon was among his most high-profile victims, having temporarily gotten paralyzed from the waist-down and molested thanks to him. She often goes to her for counsel whenever a suspect is determined to be an Arkham escapee, and is very impressed of how she's continued to get back up after years of torment by her enemies, especially when continued her war on crime as Oracle after The Killing Joke incident. Commissioner Gordon is very supportive of this dynamic.
    • Shino Asada is a prime example of how badly even a single crime can affect someone, and Sato saw herself in the traumatized girl. Sato checks on her from time to time to see if she's okay, and has even made an ALfheim Online account as a Sylph.
  • Takagi: It doesn't matter whether it's a petty or a major crime, all crimes are unforgivable!
  • Sato: The word "justice" isn't a word you can involve in any occasion... it's something we must hold secretly in our heart.

  • The couple who both decided to wipe out all the memories of each other's relationship, the couple's story that deconstruct romantic comedy reached the Pantheon. The sheer Tearjerker nature of their story as well as the exploration of memory and love has ascended the couple into the Pantheon.
    • With their ascension, the couple have been working together to avoid the mistake of their last time together and build a better relationship this time around.
  • Because of the fact that the two of them intentionally wipe themselves of their memory of the others, they have a rather... complicated relationship with the House of Love. The entire house always erupt into a big argument over whose fault it is for their break up: Joel's judgmental attitude or Clementine's wild and irresponsible personality. Nevertheless, the House has high hope that the two will work out their relationship this time around.
  • Their temple has a lot of visitor due to sharing the experience of someone they romantically involved with lost their memories. However, because the couple chose to wipe their own memory instead of the usual route of an outside force, most of the visit are rather awkward...
    • Both of them are rather confused when EVE dragged WALL•E to their temple not only because they are robots, but also because they have very limited vocabulary to express their story. Luckily, with time and effort, EVE was able to communicate her love story.
    • Link and Zelda starts almost every new installments by entering and exiting the couple's temple since in almost every games they are romantically involved.
    • Katniss refuses to visit their place because it triggers her memory of the time when Peeta's memory is lost and he became a puppet for her enemies. The same story with Guts because the temple's story just reminds him too much of Casca.
    • Those who have happier ending on their love ones with lost memories tend to have more positive interaction and hope that the couple will have a healthier relationship this time around. Among them are Elie, Chuck and Goliath.
    • The couple is glad that Kermit has broken up with Miss Piggy after hearing how poorly Miss Piggy treats him when he lost his memory.
    • Feels very sorry for the Ice King after hearing his story and hopes that he remember his love Betty as well as finding a cure for him.
    • Learns from Sabrina Spellman, who also once has her love Harvey lost memory, that Libby Chessler once took advantage of this to tricks him into thinking Libby is his girlfriend. This caused Clementine to despises her with a passion since the latter was a victim of a similar trick.
  • One of the few civilians that have an extended relationship with Jason Bourne considering he went through similar experience of spontaneously remembering his old life.
  • Joel bonds over with Truman Burbank and Stanlet Ipkiss over their complicated love life. The fact that they looks the same is a nice bonus. The same situation happens when Clementine encounters Ophelia and Rose.
  • Joel absolutely hates Bruce Nolan for his reckless use of the power that was given to him, as well as his callousness toward his love interest reminds Joel too much of his own. The fact that the two looks the same also doesn't help.

  • Domains: Couples, Workers (Kaoru), Otakus (Hajime)
  • Allies: Nyarko and Mahiro Yasaka, Ichika Orimura, Son Chichi and Son Goku
  • So what would you get if you put an office lady who is passionate about her work (to an extend) and an otaku who spends most of his time home? A surprisingly good couple, believe it or not. Where they might have some issues about understanding eachother, they really do love eachother for that to not matter.
  • Hajime was rather happy to ascend due of being able to actually meet all of the anime characters he so adores. Kaoru was happy, but for not for any particular reason.
  • Mahiro, believe it or not, seemed to look up for the two. While Nyarko and Hajime seem to hang out, Mahiro talks to Kaoru about how she can stand Hajime, wondering if he can have a similar relation with Nyarko. Though the two have promised to keep it between the two of them.
  • Where Kaoru cannot get that easily drunk, when she does, she gets utterly smashed. Some gods claimed that she once got into a drunken frenzy where she mugged Nui Harime's clothes and went on the night dressed as her, laughing manically. They really thought they heard Nui raving around.
    • However, it might be some weird rumour, as Kaoru has toned down on both drinking and smoking (not like most people see her smoke that much). Her being pregnant is the reasoning for the fact.
      • As the day of the baby's birth is going closer, some god have been wondering what gonna happen if an entity is born here in the Pantheon.
  • Hajime spends most of his time back at their temple, where Kaoru is more outgoing.
  • Many were surprise that an otaku like Hajime was able to marry someone like Kaoru. Atleast some believe they are a part of some Japanese Propaganda.
  • Hajime was very upset about the Reset Button being destroyed. Since he wanted to use it to restore Kaoru's hymen. That earned him a punch in the head.
  • Kaoru often visits the House of Food to practice her cooking. Unfortunately, her skills haven't improve one bit despite having some of the best cooks in the pantheon. But she hasn't given up just yet.
  • The House of Craft were commission to build a storage house for Hajime's many apparels. They had to build two more.
  • Have often gone on double dates with some of already ascended married deities. However, they don't go on the ones with Gomez and Morticia. Their last one was a boat ride to the Black Lagoon. It, it wasn't a good trip.
  • No one is not sure how it happened (though some evidence support it was Hiyori Tamura's fault), some of Hajime's brother's doujins about his brother ended up in the Pantheon. Hajime didn't even bother trying to get them back.
  • There seem to be some questions on how Kaoru went from having black hair to having blonde hair. Most gods think that she dyed it for Hajime's sake.
  • Besides his flaws, the fact that Hajime would make a better parent in the near future than some other people is something to consider about.

  • The House of Love turned to the streets of 19th century France to the story of Christian, who told the story of a Dramedy through the means of a flashback. It told of the time when he entered Paris as a naive poet striving to make it big. It was there that he was drawn to the Moulin Rouge, a nightclub/brothel that was the hottest sell in the city. There, he met the star attraction, a High-Class Call Girl named Satine. He was instantly smitten. What followed was a tale of wonderful and tragic woe, ultimately ending in her death due to tuberculosis. The house took interest in the story, particularly when she rejected his proposition so that her jealous suitor Duke wouldn't go after him. With that story in mind, the deities there decided to bring not only Christian but also Satine. Finally together, the couple settled down to have their happy ending.
  • The couple draw a big crowd from the House of Music as well. The movie is believed to have helped revive the Musical film genre. It didn't matter that many of their songs were a mix-mash of cover songs fro the modern era, it was the way it was depicted that made the songs enjoyable.
  • The Greek Goddess of Love took a liking to the couple, especially how Christian was able to wrest her from the Duke, even if it didn't work out well for them in the end. The couple has been sprinkled with gifts of wine and flowers in the hopes of rekindling their relationship.
  • Now that they can be together, Satine set up a cabaret of her own filled with dancers from all over the Pantheon. Their temple quickly became the new Moulin Rogue for all to attend. Within is a memorial of Zidler, her former boss. Sure, he was the one who propositioned her to the Duke, but she knew he was doing so for the best of the Moulin Rogue.
    • There was one time when she invited a group of people claiming to be from the Transsexual, Transylvania. Little did they know that their leader, the infamous Dr. Frank-n-Furter had plans of his own. It didn't take long before he took over the temple for himself, transforming all the dancers to his own troupe for his entertainment. Thankfully, others received word of the takeover and drove him out. Frank was subsequently slapped with a restraining order from both the couple and the building.
  • As with many couples in the Pantheon, a lot of comparisons have been made between the two and Romeo and Juliet. This is especially true as the two couldn't have been more different from each other. At least one of them survived in the end. Still, both are happy to have their happy ending in the Pantheon.
    • In that regard, the two have more in common with Tony and Maria. In Maria's case, he comforted Christian for the loss of his love in a gender reversal. In fact, Maria suspected she had similar misgivings against the wilder suitor at first until they found out there was a soft side under that exterior. One can often see the two couples go on double dates with each other in classic diners. The two aren't that too far off in terms of timelines.
  • Ichiro and Ryoko watched the couple's relationship flow and ebb throughout their lifetimes in the hope that they complete the loop that many of their followers go through. Which made it more tragic to them when the two made up when she was already about to die. Thus they were excited to see the two have arrived in the Pantheon. Both were willing to help them sort out their new leash of life as well as where to go from there.
  • Much of their problems in their story stemmed from a wealthy suitor code-named the Duke of Monroth. The Duke was to invest in the cabaret to keep it flowing and he would receive Satine as his prize. Christian's arrival threatened those plans and he raged war against the man. This infatuation with her was the cause of many of their problems and was openly sponsored by none other than Lezard Valeth. The couple have made great pains to make sure he doesn't decide to bring the Duke over to bring them more misery.
    • Christian's ascension means that another of Jack Dawson's followers have made the big time. Jack and Cal share deistic powers between rich and poor suitors to love interests. Of course, Cal wasn't too happy about getting one-upped and has banked rolled multiple suitors towards Satine in the hopes of breaking the two apart.
    • The two brought the attention of Rose Bukater, survivor of the ill-fated Titanic... and also the love interest of Jack Dawson. Christian felt that he had a similar pain to that of Rose when both of their love interests died. She proved to be the perfect person in handling their reunion. At least on their part, the couple do not have to worry about their rich suitor ruining things between them.
  • Apparently, tragic figures compliment the French, so the couple thought when they came upon the case of Jean Valjean. Satine in particular took the fate of him and Fantine to heart. She understands the dangers of prostitution and wanted to speak her mind about Valjean abandoning her at her time of need. Yet it was is care of Cosette that won her over. In the end, the three French people threw their anger at Javert for his pointless pursuits. Their temple has become a popular hiding place for the runaway when escaping the officer.
  • As with all other couples Ato-ko Shirogane has sought them out in order to break up their relationship. In this case, she has an easy line of attack: focusing on Christian's insecurities in dating a call girl along with Satine's suspicions that her lover will never accept her for who she is.

  • Tony and Maria are a fascinating pair, drawn to each other one night at a school dance and became lost in each other's eyes. It was Love at First Sight... but there only one problem.note  Tony was a white American and former co-founder of the Jets street gang, while Maria was the younger sister of Bernardo, leader of Puerto Rican based Sharks. To make matters worse, on the night the pair fell in love the two gangs decided to end their feud once and for all. While Tony managed to keep the fighting to a simple Combat by Champion... things still went wrong. And it only got worse from there. It was after that terrible night that Cosmos took pity on the couple, and so she brought Maria up to the Pantheon and resurrected Tony. They were originally tasked with serving as High Priests to the Star-Crossed Lovers Romeo and Juliet who were, much to their surprise and horror, their inspiration. But their story, and the circumstances behind their first meeting, met the requirements for the Boy Meets Girl trope, allowing them to be granted a temple of their own. With the consent of their counterparts, of course.
  • Their temple leads to Manhattan's West End, home territory for both the Jets and the Sharks. They rarely visit it though. The turf war between the two gangs may be over but the memory of what transpired, not to mention the lives lost and destroyed by the conflict has left a bitter taste in both Tony and Maria's mouths. Despite so, they will make stops to check up on the surviving gang members and have even invited them to the Pantheon to showcase their dance skills to the other deities, much to the surprise of anyone watching the performance at hand.
  • It was Tony's suggestion to bring Maria's close friend Anita up to serve as their Herald, seeing how she was willing to keep their relationship a secret... and boy did it backfired horribly! Anita was not happy to be made a Herald, not only due to being nearly raped by the Jets, but because her boyfriend Bernardo - Maria's brother - was murdered by Tony's hand during the supposed "last rumble." She only took the job for Maria's sake, but most of the time spends her time away from the duo, interacting with other Latino deities and practicing her own dance skills in the House of Music.
    • It was through Anita though that Tony and Maria became friends with several other deities of Spanish/Latin origin. Amigo, Zorro, and Inigo Montoya are among their first acquaintances, though Don Flamenco was a bit too flamboyant for the pair and Vega... is off the list. Interestingly, SomeCallMeJohnny of the Super Gaming Bros relates to Maria and her family's predicament considering he too is Puerto Rican. He's even invited Tony and Maria to join in on his let's play channel alongside Elliot, Matt, Mark and Sabrina but they've politely declined. They're not exactly the "gaming" type.
  • The pair are often seen in the House of Theatre, taking part in the various productions presented there. Most of the time, they help with the choreography and singing practice which produces a plethora of artistic masterpieces. Shakespeare himself has complimented the pair for their work but did goof up when he offered them the chance to play Romeo and Juliet. They politely declined and stuck to training. Kermit the Frog later offered the pair an opportunity to become a part of the amphibian's new Muppet Show cast, an offer that they're considering.
    • Speaking of Shakespeare, Tony and Maria's relationship with the Bard's other creations can be described as... complicated. They help out in taking care of Ophelia's temple - all the while calling out Hamlet for his treatment of her, and have been seen conversing with King Lear and his daughter Cordelia, who also shared a tragic ending to their story. As for Othello, the young couple came to realize the Moor of Venice's fatal flaw and were just glad to get away from him after their first meeting. Romeo and Juliet have confessed that their fellow deities can be a bit... extreme, but reassured Tony and Maria that things will get easier.
  • Both Tony and Maria were amazed by Team JNPR and their ability to dance in unison, so much so that all six have been seen working on their choreography in the House of Music along with the Elite Beat Agents. They've even gotten together with Michael Jackson, whose music video Bad took several cues from their home world, and performed their hearts out To all of them, dancing is serious business.
  • The pair get along well with the other couples in the House of Love, often hanging out and trading stories with them on their off times. Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth Bennet, Belle and the Beast will share tips and advice to the couple for improving their relationship whilst Alana and Marko have connected with the pair due to their connection to Romeo and Juliet. This is a major asset to have, as the pair only knew each other for a few nights and in that time, several of their loved ones lost their lives. Romeo and Juliet echo the advice of the others too; don't rush into love.
  • It's no surprise that They oppose the House of Hatred, as the hatred between the Jets and Sharks led to Riff, Bernardo, and Tony's deaths. The House, of once, understands the pairs' stance, and all member have kept their distance... though they have shown up to their performances to show support.
  • Though they have put the gang war between the Jets and Sharks behind them, the Pantheon's ascended gangsters and mob bosses leave a bitter taste in both Tony and Maria's mouths. The 3rd Street Saints Leader, Giorno Giovanna, Birdie are more organized than the youthful gangs but they've given the pair cold glares whenever they pass by. The pair also have trouble with some of the more corrupt officers in the Pantheon, being reminded of the Detective Schrank and Officer Krupke. This extends mainly to Rosco Coltrane and Scott Shelby but the pair are wary around the likes of Chief Wiggum and Cole Phelps too, despite the latter's honest work and actually showing support for their relationship. It may have something to do with Phelps cheating on his wife for another woman.
  • Rumour on the street is Tony and Maria have been conversing with Steven Spielberg about remaking their story for a new audience. Things have been hush-hush but their excitement is more than evident. As a result they've been practicing harder than ever, as well as recruiting young new talent to join in on the fun.

  • Quasideities
  • Symbol: A butterfly (Victor) and a Victorian dress (Victoria).
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Arranged Marriage that worked out well, Birds of a Feather
  • Domains: Love, Kindness, Class

  • Pities: Trip & Grace
  • Conflicting Opinion: Medea & Souichirou Kuzuki
  • Arranged marriages are an old practice that saw its use dwindling nowadays and they usually were enacted to either extend a family, unite two kingdoms or companies or even for monetary gain. Victor Van Dort, a butterfly enthusiast and Victoria Everglot, a recently poverished lady were set to marry each other to both raise the Van Dorts' social class and restore the Everglots' wealth, benefitting each other; it helps a lot that Victor and Victoria actually like each other. But their elopement was interrupted by Victor's nervousness causing him to ran off and him attempting to regain confidence at an old forest ended up having him meet Emily and causing the rest of the events to play out, eventually ending with Victor and Victoria marrying with love and certainty. Their arranged marriage which not only benefited them but also their families has earned them the right to enter the Trope Pantheons.
  • Emily was one of the first people to greet the couple as she vouches for their ascension in the first place, and not only they are also happy to see her again she is also delighted that they and their families were doing much better than before. Also greeting them is Jack Skellington who is a friend of Emily that was curious about her adventure with Victor; he decided to befriend him to alleviate his nervousness and Victor likes Jack once he looks past his scary exterior. It helps that they share the same creator.
  • When the couple first settle into their newfound temple (which is a recreation of Victor's family mansion), their neighbours Sanada Nobuyuki and his own wife Inahime came by to greet them. Like Victor and Victoria, they too were arranged to be married to bring benefits to both of their families and their love for each other strengthens the success of it so they were very happy that it turned out the same for the other two (well, after some scuffles with Emily no less); they are even grateful that Nobuyuki and Inahime are willing to protect them since they have little to none combat experience. La Muerte & Xibalba initially scared them since they are all-powerful in their homeworld but Victor and Victoria managed to look past their intimidating exteriors and see that despite their quarrels, they do love each other which is something they are awed at since they are Physical Gods. Like with other couples, Princess Cadence wishes the best in their marriage and hopes that it lasts long, a compliment they accepted wholeheartedly and Trip & Grace tells them to cherish each other since their own marriage is not one of perfection, something Victor and Victoria feels bad about.
    • However, not all of their housemates are that friendly. Caster and her husband Souichirou Kuzuki had committed murders as they pleased during the Fifth Holy Grail War, causing Victor and Victoria to stay away from them coldly. The evil couple expected it since said actions warrant some criticism but deep down, Caster is a little sad that because of her actions, she and Kuzuki technically pushed them away and kept their social network minimal.
  • Of course, those that threaten relationships is instantly disliked by the civilized couple. Ato-ko Shirogane is determined to break them up for her sick amusement and satisfaction for her fetish to the point that they outright hate her, Raynare and Gideon Graves are terrible significant others that the couple are glad to never run into and Embryo & Akio Ohtori treated other women with little to no respect let alone their humanity all for their vile and selfish needs. Their powerful allies agreed with their oppositions against the aforementioned and are ready to defend the couple against them.
  • Scary villains like Oogie Boogie and the Headless Horseman unnerve the couple and Victor is horrified that Oogie is made up of bugs, something he's exploiting given Victor loves butterflies. The Horseman is willing to go after their heads, Victor's especially which gave the couple some sleepless nights.
  • Through Jack, Victor and Victoria meet James and his Bug Friends and were amazed at his adventure and his bravery that he experienced. Victor is a little bummed that there is not a single butterfly among the Bug Friends but he does find them a lot more pleasant than most other people he has met before and Victoria can agree.
  • Victor van Dort is an avid butterfly enthusiast and he's delighted to find Sig, Agitha & Shino Aburame who share his love of butterflies on top of bugs in general; they all even go on butterfly catching activities whenever they have the time together. Through them, he and Victoria also befriended Mothra and was both scared and amazed that she is a giant butterfly; it helps that she's very benevolent. She'll even defend the couple against the Radiance, which he accepts given that even though he knows that butterflies evolved from moths, the Radiance is one moth he does not want face with her dangerous plagues and aims of stripping free will from bugkind for subservience to her.
  • Victoria Everglot was a poor aristocrat before marrying Victor and as such, sympathizes a lot with those who share unfortunate situations like her such as Sara Crewe and Perrine Clostermann. She gave her full support to them once she heard their stories of paying for her education after her father's death and rebuilding her homeland after a Neuroi invasion respectively; Sara even comes over to Victoria's temple to tell stories to her and Victor. Charlie Bucket also befriended Victoria and Victor and impressed them when they heard he was chosen to become Willy Wonka's successor of his chocolate factory.
