Guy Shishioh, God of Courage (Evoluder, God of Destruction, World's Strongest Cyborg)

    Jarvan Lightshield IV 
Jarvan Lightshield IV, God of Fearlessness Towards Death (Jarvan IV, J4, Jarvan, The Exemplar of Demacia, Prince Jarvan, JarMAN)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The 'Demacian Standard' flag, surrounded with a golden circle and 'impassable crater'
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Warrior Prince, Not Afraid to Die, Authority Equals Asskicking (and the inverse), Creating Impassable Terrains, Ground-Shattering Landing, Gold Color Theme, Determination, Manliness, Big Spears That Slices In Addition Of Stabbing, "DEMACIAAAA!!!"
  • Domain: Emotion, War, Life and Death, Combat.
  • Allies: Champions of the state Demacia (especially Garen, Lux and Xin Zhao), most Radiant heroes, Kain Highwind, Prince Marth, Queen Elsa, Kamina, Lu Bu, Riven
  • Rivals: Defenders of the Ancients
  • Enemies: Champions of the state Noxus, Prince Hans, Mouri Motonari, Lady Tremaine
  • When Darius countered to Garen that he was the sole Demacian in the Pantheon, the Might of Demacia realized that Darius had a point. Fortunately, that was countered when suddenly, there was a familiar yell "DEMACIAAAA!!!" and a groundbreaking stomp caused by none other Prince Jarvan, assuring that Garen is no longer the sole Demacian. Darius still escaped, because he still stored one Flash spell. Jarvan's dumbfounded response is "I'm... helping?"
    • Once that was cleared up, Jarvan has explained that he ascended because the Pantheon saw it that many considered death to be something to be feared and prevents them to do their best. That was the reason of his ascension, to ensure success through being fearless to death. If one would be scared of death, Jarvan would give his guidance to remove the fear and letting them do their best.
  • Considers Riven to be something of a conundrum. On one hand, she opposes the Noxian leadership. On the other hand, she has little more love for Demacia and believes in the Noxian ideal wholeheartedly. Given her strength, fighting her would just result in more collateral damage than desirable, so he's ordered the other Demacian champions to just not get in her way.
  • A top class Determinator. Jarvan's well known to state to his would be executioners that there's only one truth located behind his spear. And most of the things he said were mostly about being brave in front of death. Naturally, he didn't get the good graces of many Death-figures.
  • Jarvan once visited Arendelle and admired its beauty. He also shows respect to Queen Elsa and Princess Anna, but once he heard something about Prince Hans, he was absolutely flabbergasted and thought that Hans was a disgrace to most Princes, even if he's not about a warring prince.
  • Has a weird relationship with Marth. While Marth would encourage about no deaths ever in a war, Jarvan could get a bit too gung-ho and possesses zero fear about dying, leaping to the battlefield with no regards of his own life. Marth has gone to often restrain Jarvan if he's about doing suicidal things, but occasionally lets Jarvan wreak havoc in a death-defying manner alone, but only if he trusted his plans to be Crazy Enough to Work. Luckily, Jarvan also has a respect to the Aritian Prince and at times restrain himself.
  • Despite his title, make no mistake, Jarvan is not a General Ripper or an abusive commanding authority figure, while he encourages his soldiers to be Not Afraid to Die, he wouldn't just toss them away like pawns. This is why he had an enmity towards Mouri Motonari.
  • Is known to make Rousing Speech a lot, in the same vein of his friend Kamina. However, one thing that separates the quality of his speech was that he often got interrupted with his spear accidentally stabbing his toesies mid-speech.
  • Is known to have challenged Lu Bu to a standstill. An impressed Lu Bu rewarded him with a spare of his clothes.
  • Together with Garen, Jarvan has found out about how Lux entered the Pantheon. Needless to say, he was pissed at Lady Tremaine for daring to do that on his fellow Demacian. "With that action, you have made yourself an enemy to the entire Demacian Army. You have made a bad choice, lady, and you will regret it! And by my will, this shall be finished!"
  • "There is only one truth, and you will find it at the point of my lance."

Lesser Gods

    Lord Djibril 
Lord Djibril, God of Dirty Cowards
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The LOGOS Logo
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil/Stupid Evil
  • Portfolio: Hate Sink, Bad Boss, Lack of Empathy, General Failure, Hair-Trigger Temper, War for Fun and Profit, The Sociopath, Dirty Coward, Evil Is Hammy, Diabolical Mastermind, Psychotic Smirk, Would Hurt a Child
  • Domains: Cowardice, Hatred, War
  • High Priests: Jarek, Shura
  • Allies: Nobuyuki Sugou, Ali Al-Saachez (for now), Muruta Azrael, Sundowner, HYDRA, Millennium, SHOCKER
  • Headbutting Villains with: Ryoma Sengoku
  • Enemies: All heroic Gundam deities (especially Kira Yamato, Lacus Clyne, Setsuna F. Seiei, and Aila Jyrkiainen), All Ascended Toku Heroes, Axel Almer & Lamia Loveless, Ryu Hayabusa, Yuuki Konno, The Punisher, Batman, Kiritsugu Emiya, Dexter Morgan, Kaito Kumon, Bowser, Raul Menendez, Jason Todd, Daffy Duck
  • Evil Counterpart to: Valvatorez
  • Opposes: Piglet
  • Opposed by: Shinn Asuka, Makoto Itou, Kotonoha Katsura, Sekai Saionji
  • Hate is a word that can easily be used to describe this man. Djibril shares as much, if not more, hatred towards the Coordinators as his predecessor, Muruta Azrael. Many others hate Djibril not for how remorseless he is in what he does, but also for not being as competent as Muruta. There's also the fact that Djibril retreats without regard of his soldiers whenever things turn south for him (and he tends to come back later with more apparently dangerous plans).
  • Like Muruta, Djibril has found work at SHOCKER, having a role similar to that as Muruta's. However, Djibril is even more difficult to work with given his tendencies and there have been instances where his (arguably idiotic) actions have cost SHOCKER some battles against various heroes. Ryoma Sengoku has cited this as the reason why he can't tolerate working with Djibril.
    • Regardless, Djibril was able to get Nobuyuki Sugou to work alongside him (provided that Ryoma is not in the same room as them). Djibril has even mentioned that something about Sugou reminded him of Neo Roanoke, whom he relied on for his plans.
  • For the most part, he tends to be in a room that contains multiple TV monitors, presumably to hear about other going-ons throughout the Pantheon. It is in that room that Djibril carries out his plans and whenever he isn't at SHOCKER's headquarters, he usually communicates with his allies from that room.
  • Unsurprisingly, his actions made him an enemy of Gundam heroes (of particular note is Aila Jyrkiainen, who hates him over the whole brainwashing thing). What is a little more surprising is the fact that a number of other Gundam deities who aren't that heroic also hate him. In particular, Treize Khushrenada finds Djibril to be despicable on multiple levels.
  • One notable rumor about Djibril is that he often gets involved in wars just to make a profit. Regardless of whether that's true or not, he's found a pretty good business partner in Sundowner, who has occasionally helped Djibril with getting enough funds to make more superweapons.
    • Djibril's presumed attitude about war also earned him the animosity of those who hate war such as Kiritsugu Emiya. They've even gone as far as to cite Djibril's actions as to why war is a horrible thing.
  • The Toku heroes, primarily the Kamen Riders, quickly decided that he is a threat to be eliminated after learning of how he worked for LOGOS, a terrorist organization not that different from SHOCKER in terms of cruelty.
  • Many war commanders, especially the good-aligned ones, detest him for not only his poor treatment for his mooks, but also for not being that smart. Even Mori Motonari, who is notorious for his disregard towards his subordinates, doesn't like Djibril at all for lacking any sort of style whatsover.
    • This animosity against him is also shared by those who are mooks working for someone and it can be argued that their hatred of Djibril is even greater than that of their hatred towards Muruta.
  • As someone who is responsible for making a program that takes children by force and turns them into dangerous soldiers, Djibril earned many enemies from those who are protective of children. In particular, people such as The Punisher, Jason Todd, and Dexter Morgan are more than willing to take down Djibril if given the opportunity to do so.
  • The fact that Djibril often leaves whenever he's about to lose earned him a lot of enemies. One notable enemy in that regard is Yuuki Konno, who hates him for being so underhanded in his tactics and the fact that he's associated himself with Sugou, who she already despises.
    • Despite being a self-admitted coward himself, even Daffy Duck is unamused with Djibril entirely. While Daffy does have a few friends to at least turn to, Djibril would simply leave his associates in a bad position whenever such a thing arises.
  • Djibril once met up with Raul Menendez and the former tried to get the latter to work with him. Menendez was against the offer as not only was Djibril lacking in certain aspects, but the fact that Djibril was basically in charge of a program that turned children into ruthless soldiers greatly offended Menendez to the point that the two have become highly antagonistic towards each other. That, and Menendez had a reason to do what he is planning to do whilst Djibril mostly did his actions out of racism against a certain kind.
  • He is rather amused at the fact that Ali Al-Saachez was involved with creating a separate army of child soldiers just for chaos. In turn, Ali found Djibril's tendencies to be entertaining and has considered working for him. Needless to say, this possible alliance immediately made Djibril a target for Setsuna F. Seiei.
  • Ryu Hayabusa is incredibly disturbed at this man over his actions and willingness to do whatever it takes to eliminate the opposition. There's another reason why the ninja hates Djibril.
  • Those who have a leadership role towards their subordinates quickly detested Djibril for completely disregarding that aspect of leadership in favor of just trying to win for personal gain. This included deities like Bowser who, despite not having the best temper around (compared to Djibril who could snap rather easily), is rather reasonable to his mooks.
  • Valvatorez absolutely despises Djibril for not only treating subordinates like trash, but for exploiting wars for personal gain, something that Val can't stand. In fact, many are convinced that these two are complete opposites in terms of mook treatment and outlook of war.

    Kirin Toudou 
Kirin Toudou, Goddess of Overcoming Fears (Lightning Blade Speed, Gusting Wind, Bladed Thunder, Seidokan's rank #1)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Symbol: Kirin's Senbakiri
  • Portfolio: Not Afraid of You Anymore, Lightning Bruiser, Shrinking Violet, Fights Like a Normal, Proper Tights with a Skirt, Nice Girl, Curtains Match the Windows, Badass Normal, It Is Dehumanising, Fangirl
  • Domains: Courage, Combat, Power
  • Allies: Ayato Amagiri, Julis Riessfeld, Ikki Kurogane, Orie Paladia, Genji Shimada, Sakura, Usalia, Itsuki Inubozaki, Morgiana, Richard, Simba, Kurumi Ebisuzawa, Satoko Houjou, Yoshino
  • Enemies: Ghetsis, Jack Horner, Gaea, Tartarus
  • Like all Genestella, Kirin has enhanced physical ability that give her an edge in a fight, yet despite this, Kirin chooses to fight with a regular katana rather than a Lux. Despite this, Kirin's not to be underestimated by those who're also skilled in a fight as Kirin didn't get the name Lightning Blade Speed or become Seidokan's strongest fighter for being sluggish in a fight.
  • When she was a little girl, Kirin and her father were attacked by a mugger and Kirin's father was forced to kill the man. Normally, he would've gotten lesser charges for killing in self-defense, but since Kirin's dad was a Genestella, he recieved a much longer imprisonment sesntence.
    • Prior to meeting Ayato, Kirin was forced to become a student at Seidokan and forced to become a tool used by her uncle so she could get her father out of prison and in return, Kirin's uncle wold use her so he could join Seidokan's Administrative Board. Not long after meeting Ayato, she gained the courage to stand up to her uncle so she could free her father from prison with her own power.
  • Due to her fighting with a normal weapons amongst people with Laser Blade's and Elemental Powers, Kirin became fast friends with Ikki Kurogane who's forced to rely on physical prowess because of his low magical talent.
  • Not long after making her past about her uncle using her known, it wasn't long before Kirin struck up a frienship with Richard and Simba who also had less-than-amoral uncles. However, unlike Richard and Simba's uncles, Kouichirou needed to use Kirin to further his own goals.
  • According to many deities who've seen Kirin's fights, they've described her fighting as a marvel to behold as Kirin's Combo-centric swordsmanship combined with her agility and speed make her a marvel to see in action. Kirin quickly became good friends with fellow combo specialist Orie Paladia.
  • One time when Kirin went to the house of personal appearance, Kirin was approached by Morgiana who had heard that Kirin was used like a tool for a long time before being freed by their friends, and it wasn't long before they hit off a friendship.
  • Not long after ascending, Kirin noticed that there were a few other cute goddess who are experienced with combat and also sound like Kirin such as Kurumi Ebisuzawa, Itsuki Inubozaki and Sakura.
  • Regardless of what her family name might tell you, Kirin is not related to Tohka Toudou.
  • While Kirin is a very kind and Adorkable girl, one way to easily anger her is to make it known that you'll use your own family for selfish gains. Bonus points if you enjoy using your family. The last poor sod who did this had Kirin's Senbakiri at his throat faster than he could say I Have No Son!.
  • On one occasion when Kirin took a trip to the house of combat, and after Kirin had a sparring match with one Genji Shimada because she was interested in clashing swords with someone for the sake of some training.
    • One rousing swordfight later, and Genji told Kirin that he had heard that she was forced to be used as a tool by her uncle so he could climb the corporate ladder so Genji divulged to her that his clan's elders had ordered his brother to have him killed because Genji didn't want to be boss of a Yakuza clan. After Genji told Kirin about his past, they became good friends thanks to their shared swordfighting skills and strained familial relations.
  • It's not uncommon to see Kirin getting along well with Satoko Houjou and Usalia as they both had to develop courage so they could confront their uncle and tormentor respectively.
  • Kirin also became friends with Yoshino, who faced the same problems until becoming a better person through her friends. They are surprisingly comfortable with one another and enjoy noticing the similarities between Shido and Ayato. Kirin also encouraged Yoshino to be more proactive in fights, even though Yoshino still prefers to remain in a support role.
  • Let out Tears of Joy after hearing that Ayato had finally ascended. She quickly ran to him and hugged him... then she grabbed his head and rubbed it against her chest, all the while promising to stay by his side forever, much to Ayato's embarassment and the amusement of many gods nearby.



    James Henry Trotter 
James Henry Trotter, the God who's Not Afraid Anymore
  • Demigod (Lesser God during his trip in the peach)
  • Symbol: A Giant Peach
  • Alightment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolios: Heartwarming Orphan, Being a Gender-Flipped Cinderella, Losing his parents to a rhino, and sent to live with his evil aunts, Overcoming his fears, Calling the Evil Aunts Out, Happily Adopted by the bugs, Art Shift from Live-Action to Stop-Motion
  • Domains: Orphans, Dreams, Bugs, Courage, Family
  • Allies: His Bug Friends, Jack Skellington, Madeline, Cinderella, Satoko Houjou, Carrie White, N, Aqua, Gardevoir (Friendship) and Gallade, Candy White.
  • Enemies: Lady Tremaine, Ghetsis
  • James lost his parents to a rhinoceros when he was very little (or so he believed), and was forced to live with his evil aunts, Spiker and Sponge. How wicked did James described them? Let's just say Lady Tremaine is a saintnote  compared to how cruel they were towards him.
    • At age seven, James accidently revived an old peach tree with some crocodile tongues he got from a mysterious man, which produced a single peach that grew into the size of a house. Some bugs were also affected by the magic of the tongues, and they recruited James to help him escape. The peach was cut free, and the group would soon fly to New York City using seagulls to carry the peach west.
    • What caused James to ascend into the pantheon is that he initially feared his wicked aunts and the rhino that (supposedly) killed his parents. He finally overcame his fears of them out of his newfound friendship towards his bug friends, whom he considers family, and defeated the rhino by telling it "I'm Not Afraid of You". But when he tried the same towards his aunts, they turned Ax-Crazy and outright tried to kill him, though his bug friends saved him. Aqua is proud of James for showing such bravery.
  • Because of their own similar backgrounds, James has shown his kindness towards N, Cinderella, Satoko, Candy, and Carrie, and tells them You Are Not Alone. The six are considering on banding together to fight against abusive guardians.
  • For this reason, James has complete hatred towards Lady Tremaine and Ghetsis for being such horrible step-parents.
  • James didn't know what to say about Jack Skellington when they met in the pantheon, considering Jack (and several undead pirates) once tried to kill Mr. Centipede because he stole a compass. Turns out that Jack was only there to recruit the pirates for that year's Halloween festivities, and while he was napping, the compass was stolen. Jack through that Mr. Centipede was hostile, explaining why they attacked the group, and if they had just asked, they would be glad to give it to them. The two are on good terms now, since the misunderstanding has been cleared.
  • James has also bonded with Madeline over their bravery through hardships, and their status as Heartwarming Orphans (though Madeline might not be an orphan). It helps that their settings are in the 1930s (or 1950s), and have family-like ties with other beings.
  • James cannot stand the evil deities of the Insects section of the House of Beasts, claiming that they give other bugs, including his adoptive family, a bad name.

    Shimazu Toyohisa 
Shimazu Toyohisa, God of Fearless Fools (The Brat of the Battlefield)
Toyohisa in his younger, more eager days 
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The Shimazu clan symbol
  • Theme Song: Gospel of the Throttle
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Absurdly Sharp Blade, Anti-Hero, BFS, Blood Knight, Brilliant, but Lazy, Combat Pragmatist, Covered with Scars, Fearless Fool, Honor Before Reason, Humble Hero, Idiot Hero, Japanese Language, Katanas Are Just Better, Magnetic Hero, Not Afraid to Die, Off with His Head!, Rousing Speech, Samurai, Shut Up, Hannibal!, Sword and Gun
  • Domains: Samurai, Slaughter, War, Samurai Swords
  • Allies: The Fortress Dwarves, Alucard, Seras Victoria, Joseph Joestar
  • Enemies: The Wendigos, the Left 4 Dead Zombies, Stitches, Millenium
  • Rivals: Samurai Jack
  • Ascended by managing to take over Orte, defending it from an Ends siege, and nearly defeating an End, all within the same battle no less.
  • Toyohisa is a samurai from the early 1600s that was transported to a "new world" by a mysterious stranger. In this new world exists elves, dwarves, dragons, orcs, kobolds, and every sort of fantasy race imaginable. It is later revealed that this world is plunged into a war between the Drifters, historically significant people, like Toyohisa, who appeared in this world from different timelines, and the Ends, monsters and people like the Drifters, but have been corrupted by the traumatic events of their past and turned to evil.
    • In this world, Toyohisa teams up with the famous daimyo Oda Nobunaga and the archer Nasu Yoichi to take over this new world, become the new rulers, and defeat the Ends. Well, Nobunaga wants to be the ruler. Toyohisa just wants to fight people.
    • Despite actually being a tactical genius, he's incredibly reckless and often heads into battle without much of a plan. Despite this, he's managed to take down small armies all by himself with little effort.
  • Even with his tactical strategy of a high-ranking general, he still thinks of himself as just a warrior in a battlefield, not worthy of the title of a general. Many citizens of the House of War are annoyed by Toyohisa for squandering his tactical genius for being a simple soldier.
  • Often visits the House of Combat to fight against the other citizens. He surprisingly puts up a good fight against a few of them despite being a demigod.
  • Quite happy to see that there are dwarves in the Pantheon, and the dwarves give him a lot of respect for being able to wipe out armies with, what they consider, a flimsy sword. He often visits them to eat and share stories.
  • Good friends with Joseph Joestar. They both enjoy each other's laidback and trickster nature. Sometimes they fight for the fun of it and put up pretty good fights.
  • A few of the citizens of the House of Otherness are either afraid of him or hate him for his slaughter of many monsters when he was in the New World, and Toyohisa was just as angry when he found out that there were entire pantheons dedicated to monsters. Though he learned to accept some of them as time went on, that didn't stop the other few that still hate him.
    • The Wendigos were pretty surprised that Toyohisa was incredibly hard to instill fear into. Despite this, they still put up a fair fight for him as they nearly ended up killing each other. Toyohisa still managed to come out victorious in the end, albeit wounded. The Wendigos still try to kill him from time to time.
    • Stitches hates him. He thought that he could easily crush the little guy, but Toyohisa was able to defeat him with ease. In didn't help that the entire time they were fighting Toyohisa was ridiculing him, saying how much of an idiot he is.
    • Surprisingly became good friends with Alucard and Seras Victoria. He and Alucard appreciate how ballsy they both are when fighting and generally how they don't act like what they're supposed to be. Unfortunately, their friendship earned Toyohisa a spot on the Millenium's hit list.
  • He and Samurai Jack are not on good terms with each other. Jack thinks Toyohisa is a disgrace to samurais for not being true to their code, and Toyohisa think's he being foolish. They tend to avoid each other out of disagreement.
  • Many has wondered what Toyohisa might look like when he was at a younger age, maybe he was merely eager. Turns out, yes, he was as eager... but just as much of a Fearless Fool that he is known for that his uncle Shimazu Yoshihiro had to drag him out of trouble. When people asked what his uncle looked like, whether he used a giant-ass sword and utilizing the sword style Jigen-Ryuu, even Toyohisa was confused, recalling that he might've used a giant-ass hammer instead...



    Baby Bink 
Bennington Austin Cotwell IV, Divine Fearless Infant (Baby Bink)
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: The storybook, Baby's Day Out
  • Theme Song: Baby's Day Out Main Title
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: A Baby that Doesn't Fear Anything, Tacky Rich Names, Is Very Intelligent and Knowledgeable for his Age, The Ace, Straying Baby, Apparently has "Baby Luck", Had a Time of his Life in a Zoo, Quite Revered in South Asia
  • Domains: Infancy, Danger, Mischief, Fearlessness, Happiness
  • Heralds: Laraine and Bennington Austin Cotwell III (his parents)
  • Allies: Yoshi, The Three Stooges, Tom and Jerry, Kazuma Kiryu, Yotsuba Koiwai, Teletubbies, Nintendogs, Goro Majima
  • Odd Friendship: Donkey Kong
  • Opposes: Any deity who would be willing to hurt a child. Some examples are The 456 Ambassador, Ryuunosuke Uryuu, The Child Abuse Supporters, Syura, Champ
  • On Good Terms With: House of Family
  • Annoys: House of Crime
  • One would think that babies are completely defenceless and need to be checked closely to ensure their safety. In the case of Baby Bink, it's a different, wacky story. Coming from a rich Chicago family, he was kidnapped by a trio of burglars who wanted Bink's fortune, but the baby proved to be a much bigger and annoying challenge than the thieves were ever prepared for. Whenever the crooks tried to keep Baby Bink ahold, he would end up strolling off to one of Chicago and then the other, prompting a series of comical and failed attempts of the thieves to recapture him. Eventually, the thieves were caught and Baby Bink was reunited with his parents.
  • Baby Bink's last known action was laughing to himself while looking at a book called Baby's Trip to China. Whether he made a trip there with his parents has never been confirmed, though some believe that this may be the reason Baby Bink entered the Pantheon. That said, the first reported signs of him were of the baby simply crawling around the streets of the House of Commerce. He was reunited with his parents again, though, for the baby, he's going to be having... a very long day out, several times.
  • Baby Bink's full name is Bennington Austin Cotwell IV. Most Pantheonic residents find the name to be too long, fancy and tacky and admitted that he's probably better off with his nickname. All that elicits is a giggle from Baby Bink himself, knowing that he's probably right, but it doesn't make it any less funny on his part.
  • Has a rather notorious reputation, which is surprising for an infant. He's usually seen without his parents and wandering off elsewhere. Sitting in the middle of the jungles of the House of Beast, crawling in the rich-laden metropolis of the House of Commerce, diligently looking at statues in the House of Heroes and trying to play with children in the House of Childhood and Adolescence, Baby Bink became famous for being at different places most of the time. Despite his parents being worried, they're given some sort of relief in that there's always good company surrounding him.
    • That said, he's never been reported to have been wandering off close to areas such as the Houses of Villains, Undead, Hatred and Betrayal. Given the very numerous evil deities there, many have tried to make sure Baby Bink never ever enters those places. Whether they were successful or Baby Bink is simply too wise to know of the dangers of those places is up for anyone's guess.
  • He's rarely, if, ever seen crying and he's always smiling and optimistic about his routine. Additionally, he never shows any sort of fear or concern regard situations that would make toughened men remotely cautious. Remarkably enough, he's listed as among being the Pantheon's bravest deities, which leaves a lot baffled at how such an ordinary baby gets that sort of reputation. Alas, there are some who aren't happy about it, given the situations Baby Bink goes through.
  • Several deities have taken up to babysitting Baby Bink at some point when his parents often have to take business meetings, though they do take him with them on holiday vacations. Each babysitter has had its own fair share of experiences.
    • The Three Stooges tried to prepare themselves in managing a baby. Instead, they never expected the sort of chaos they were getting into by simply babysitting Baby Bink. Initially, the Stooges would be doing a good job, and then suddenly, Baby Bink is at the streets. In an instant panic, the Stooges rush outside, only to see the baby be in ridiculously bizarre situations like hanging in the edge of a construction tower or being inside of a factory. Still, even if they keep messing up on trying to secure Baby Bink, they have done their damn best to ensure he isn't harmed.
    • Tom and Jerry also took to babysitting Baby Bink, given that they've done a similar job beforehand. Like the Three Stooges beforehand, they were caught by surprise on how quickly Baby Bink suddenly vanishes and ends up in perilous locations. Cue Tom and Jerry getting themselves into brutal Slapstick just to keep Baby Bink out of harm. At least Tom and Jerry are better babysitters than Jeannie if that's one compensation and that Baby Bink doesn't suddenly defy the laws of gravity, unlike the other baby.
    • Yoshi, however, actually managed to keep Baby Bink safe and secure when he decided to take a try in looking after him. It helped that he kept the baby perched onto his saddle. But even then, Yoshi had a lot of difficulty trying to look after Baby Bink, especially after he suddenly wandered off to the House of Beast and ended up wanting to play with some of the primates. All that said, Yoshi did manage to return Baby Bink back to his residents before his parents could. One problem though; Yoshi made a promise he'll come back to visit him. Hopefully, the shenanigans wouldn't be bigger...
  • His parents have made good relations with Kazuma Kiryu, and Kiryu himself has taken to taking care of Baby Bink at times. Even for someone as stern and headstrong as he is, even Kiryu gets into Baby Bink's troubles. Then again, crazy things are something that's a common occurrence for Kiryu. There were a few instances of criminals who tried to kidnap Baby Bink, followed by Kiryu giving them a beatdown. Baby Bink found the whole commotion hilarious.
  • At some point, Goro Majima kidnapped Baby Bink in an attempt to force Kiryu into a fight. Even after kidnapping him, Majima treated him well and even took babysitting lessons to keep check of him. And no, Baby Bink wasn't fazed when Kiryu came in, angry and starting a tough fight against Majima. All that said, nothing malicious occurred between the two and Kiryu expressed some surprise when Majima revealed that he was also trying to take care of the baby. From there, Majima is allowed to officially babysit... if he simply asks permission from Kiryu and Baby Bink's parents.
    • While he finds looking after him very difficult, similar to almost everyone else, at least Majima can entertain Baby Bink in numerous ways. It helps with Majima being Crazy Awesome after all, he admits to enjoying the time he has with Baby Bink. He also brings along his right-hand man, Nishima, only to force him to babysit alongside him. All of this makes the situation funnier to Baby Bink, but even more embarrassing to Nishima.
      • All this considered, Majima does not want to recall the time Baby Bink suddenly appeared at a ''Majima Construction'' site. Either there was a lot of fun or a lot of mayhem that occurred there. Baby Bink couldn't talk either, so there's really no one else out there who could really describe the incident.
  • Will often be taken to the Gaming Genres Sub-House to play with a selection of dogs. Many deities suggested the parents to take Baby Bink there as they said he would love dogs, but also because they want to assure he's given some sort of active occupation. That still doesn't stop Baby Bink from crawling out and having fun elsewhere.
  • Is pretty well known for having fun with a gorilla in a zoo. As a result, he quickly became friends with Doney Kong when they first met, with DK even allowing Baby Bink to eat from his own banana hoard. Additionally, DK has also made it clear that whoever threatens Baby Bink is an enemy to him. Due to being an infant, DK is understandably nervous about Baby Bink being in jungles, though he'll have him in his clutches whenever he goes vine swinging.
  • There's apparently a book in the works known as Baby's Pantheonic Carnival. While it'll take some time before it's published, Baby Bink is rather eager to get his hands on the book. According to word of mouth, the only beings who are aware of said book's progress and date of publication in the future are the upper-ups of the House of Knowledge.


How well does it match the trope?
