    Ayana Sakanagi/Swim Swim 
Ayana Sakanagi, Goddess of Cathartic Deaths (Swim Swim, Swim-chan, Swim2, Waifu Killer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_swim_swim_maho.jpg
Human form 
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Symbol: A bunny underwater
  • Portfolio: Asshole Victim, Elemental Shapeshifter, Blade on a Stick, Making a Splash, The Stoic, School Swimsuit, Book Dumb, Nigh Invulnerable, There Can Be Only One, Dragon Ascendant, Younger Than They Look, Friend or Foe, Hero Killer, Cast from Lifespan
  • Domains: Magic, Death, Water
  • Followers: Teppei Hojo, President Shinra, Carver, Shinji Matou
  • Allies: Yunael and Minael, Anybody who'll help her become Ruler
  • Enemies: Snow White/Koyuki Himekawa, Weiss Winterprison, Sister Nana, Anybody who gets in the way of becoming Ruler, Anybody who learns Swim Swim's identity, Light, Sound, Ice and Lightning users, Juvia Lockser, Eneru, Groudon
  • Respects: Princesses
  • Special relationship: Tama
  • Ayana Sakanagi's ascension came with a lot of disappointment from several deities who happy to see her put down after the atrocities she committed during her time as a mortal. It doesn't help that she (through a technicality) also made an Asshole Victim out of Forest Musician Cranberry by having one of her minions open a hole (normally for tunneling) through Cranberry's body.
  • There are very few deities who like Swim Swim because they're aware of her personality from when she was mortal ans don't want to associate with a 7 year old who's Nigh Invulnerable and would kill them the moment they became an obstruction to her goal of becoming Ruler. The fact that a few children and even a pregnant woman were among her victims don't help matters, even among villains.
    • Several deities use the phrase "Fuck Swim Swim" whenever she does something particularly asshole-ish. Bonus points if Swim Swim does something mean to her allies.
  • Ayana Sakanagi's magic allows her to turn her body into water and swim through surfaces as though they were water.
    • Because her magic makes her immune to any physical attacks, the only ways to hurt Swim Swim is with light, sound, lightning and ice attacks. Due to these weaknesses, Swim Swim keeps her distance from the houses of Electricity, Music, Ice & Cold and Light & Brightness.
    • Two deities in particular that Ayana doesn't get along well with are Juvia Lockser and Eneru as the both of them have similar abiities to Swim Swim and because of this, there's nothing Ayana can really do to harm them. Anybody with a basic grasp of science would be able to tell you why Eneru is more dangerous than Juvia.
    • Swim Swim also tries to keep as far away as possible from Groudon as his Desolate Land can completely invalidate her existence.
    • There are those that hope that among those that might end up discovering Swim Swim's true identity, Saitama will never be among them, because she will have to kill him, which will be impossible for her to do. They would be incapable of harming each other, since Swim Swim No Sells his physical attacks regardless of strength or speed, Saitama is practically impervious against anything she can dish out on him, and he won't kill humans, which Swim Swim still is.
  • Most of the time when Ayana needs to leave her temple, she does so in her human form as very few deities suspect that a small child walking around is actually Swim Swim.
  • While the number of deities who are indifferent to/like Swim Swim is smaller than the number of snowballs in Hell (the rest hate and/or somehow pity her), Ayana was glad to see the Peaky Angels had ascended before her and since they're no longer constantly fighting for their survival, the 3 of them can be seen hanging out together.
    • Despite not needing to fight for survival, that hasn't stopped Swim Swim from being at odds with the already ascended Winterprison and Sister Nana as she had a hand in both of their deaths.
  • After Swim Swim ascended, she was surprised to find that she didn't have Ruler with her. When she found out that Snow White had it, she immediately went to confront the Magical Girl Hunter. Snow White told Swim Swim that she'd give her back Ruler if she could land a hit on Snow. Because of the nature of Snow White's magic, Swim Swim has yet to succeed in this dare.
    • Shortly after the Divine Powers ascended, Odin tracked down Swim Swim and learned about what happened to her spear. Feeling pity for her, he allowed her to borrow Gungnir for until she could retrieve Ruler, at which point she would have to return Gungnir to him as stated in a contract. Swim Swim, to everyone's surprise, accepted the contract. This has made her even more dangerous as she can now pierce through any resistance to physical attacks.
  • While Swim Swim has little regard for those she attacks, you'd be hard pressed to see her attacking a goddess who's a princess as Swim Swim has nothing but respect for those in a position to command respect. This still doesn't earn her any favors from Princess-themed magical girls like Cure Ace, the Princess Pretty Cures and the Mermaid Princesses (especially the last group, since their powers are music/sound-based).

  • Unwitting Pawn of: Gill
  • Respects: Remy
  • Pities: Juri Han
  • Opposed by: Urien
  • Opposes: Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke
  • Supported by: Crimson Viper
  • Conflicting Opinion
  • Complicated Relationship with: Kolin
  • He used to hold the title of Those Doomed in Canon, but the guardians of the House of Life and Death found no traces of him in his temple for a good reason. Charlie somehow reappeared in his very temple, with a new title no less.
  • Many deities already know his history, as he's the Air Force captain who pioneered the specialized fighting style including the arts of Sonic Boom and Somersault, then proceeded to train Guile in these same arts. Thanks to this fact, Guile is present in the Pantheon.
  • Ever since his return, Charlie is on the black list of the Grand United Alliance of Evil, due to his superior fighting prowess. In fact, many fear him, save M. Bison for obvious reasons.
  • His philosophy for surviving in combat is to keep a cool head, avoid making mistakes, and strike at the right time. However, M. Bison and Shadaloo's crimes were able to make him lose his cool to the point that he charged headlong straight into what turned out to be a fatal ambush including a Cavalry Betrayal on the part of his own backup.
  • Along the way in his career, Charlie has forged alliances with many of those who would turn up to compete in World Warrior tournaments and end up fighting alongside Guile against Shadaloo, such as Interpol detective Chun-Li, Shadaloo Doll-turned-Delta Red agent Cammy, and Anasatsuken pupils Ryu and Ken. He and Chun-Li once posed as a husband-and-wife duo on one particular mission, and he's done enough research on the Satsui no Hado to see that Ryu's power could be important. Unfortunately, in his return he's even willing to kill said friends if they get in his way. He stopped trusting ANYONE because of the above ambush.
  • The reason for his return is explained: Charlie did indeed die in the waterfall ambush, which took place some time after saving the life of Abel at one point. The organization who led to his rebirth is in fact…Illuminati, hence the jewel is located in his forehead. In fact, his sickly-looking stitched-together new skin came from one of the special prototype vessels in Urien's laboratory. On top of that, he was amnesiac at first but has recovered his memories, though he's still being manipulated by said organization as he isn't fully aware of who they are. Urien thinks of him as a worthless puppet who should be exterminated, but Gill and HelenAKA  are hopeful that he will serve their prophecies.
  • He hid himself from everyone including Abel and Guile until it was time for him to act against Shadaloo in his revival since he just plain doesn't trust anyone anymore. Even his mysterious nurse Helen. While he's grateful that she's been tending him back to form amd doesn't fully know what's going on with her, he's no idiot to the fact she has ulterior motives behind the anti-Bison alliance she's forging.
    • Aside from Nash himself, said alliance also includes the sadistic Juri, who Nash pities for how the dark path she's taken of infiltration for the sake of vengeance has reshaped the core of her being.
  • Nash is currently holding a photo of Guile as a memento. The reason behind it? Guile has an important chess piece Helen needs him to take from the man. He went after Guile and took the piece without a word because it's key to stopping Shadaloo. It would turn out the piece was one of the keys to seven artificial "Black Moons" used to amplify negative emotions and spiral global society into chaos in order to feed Bison's Psycho Power up to nigh-invincibility.
  • Charlie had a strong sense of righteousness as well as a seldom-spoken faith during his life, having sworn to protect God's creation, peace, and justice back when he first became a soldier. This puts him over big time with President Jed Bartlet. Jed was disappointed to see that he lost that spark when he resurfaced after being revived as his idealism had given way to an impatient vengeance. But when his good sense returned to him and he quietly reconciled with his friends and honorably sacrificed himself to weaken the unduly-powered Bison enough to cause the Dictator's ultimate defeat in their mortal universe, the Pres was once again pleased with Charlie and happy to greet his reappearance in the Pantheon.
    • Shortly after reviving in the Pantheon, Nash once again sought out Guile, partly at the request of President Bartlet. This time, he ended up saving his old friend from the ambush of Balrog and his new criminal friend Kano, flooring Kano with a Sonic Hurricane and scaring Balrog away. Furthermore, due to the above epiphany Charlie had much friendlier intentions of his own for finding Guile.
    Charlie: "We never did get to finish that conversation at Miss Kanzuki's, did we, Guile?"
    • Aside from informing Guile of Bartlet's request for a conference, Charlie resumed said conference by revealing to Guile some of the horrors he saw in a mission he conducted against Shadaloo which had made him lose his cool in the first place, as well as the precious little he knows about the people that revived him.
  • Nash finds commonality with Sylvanas Windrunner in that they both came back from the dead to stop and destroy a tyrant. However, unlike Charlie, Sylvanas is a true Revenant Zombie and cannot get past her hatred, something he pities her for.
  • On one hand, he respects the Repliforce trio as well as Rebellion commander Epsilon for leading military orders that represent fighting for freedom. On the other hand, both of their armies have been used as the rubes for one megalomaniac or another with similarities to Bison, so he knows they've been pretty corruptible in the past.
    • On that note, Nash is not a fan of Sigma at all and plans on encountering X and Zero to see about a potential alliance to monitor and stop both Sigma and Bison before the two villains can beat everyone to the punch.
  • Despite knowing Nash is ultimately here to stop an evil dictator in Bison, Edward Elric has trouble trusting him because he was brought Back from the Dead by means of arcane experimentation in a clearly affected state, something the high command in Amestris would've done without hesitation if it was at all possible in Ed's world.
  • Roy Mustang, however, likes Nash's pragmatic (if sometimes ruthless) approach, and finds Nash reminiscent of two of his own military buddies when they're being serious. Mustang has taken it upon himself to tell Nash about Father, with Charlie agreeing to keep an eye out for the Homunculus.
  • Through his constant association with death, Nash managed to run into Ichigo Kurosaki. Ichigo's various powers as well as his balance between being cool-headed and hot-blooded impressed Charlie, but he thinks the young man is a bit too trusting.
  • Remy, a fighting savant with similar abilities to Guile and Nash, has also caught Nash's eye. Upon looking up his backstory, Charlie understood the young man's hatred towards his father but considered it to be hopelessly misdirected. Upon learning Remy had an epiphany which has enabled him to get past his hatred without having to be beaten by the object of said hatred and stirred to it with some words from Rashid of the Turbulent Wind, Nash gained a small measure of admiration for Remy. That said, he still wants to find out who Remy's father is before Remy himself does.
    • On a related note, when he met his old ally Rashid again in the Pantheon, the young Arabian was overjoyed to see him in better spirits than before, even if he's still stitched-up and a bit grim and serious. At some point Rashid asked him about a one-time partnership with a woman named Maya, claiming that another friend of his also named Maya had been approached about this, saying it wasn't her but she'd be open to a future alliance. Nash recalled a time when a Royal Thai Police detective helped him investigate Shadaloo while he was working with Interpol in Hong Kong, adding that many basically-incorrect and self-contradictory details were publicized about that incident. Given that Rashid's friend is a redheaded CIA agent, they're confident it's not the same person.
  • Wonders if Ryoma Sengoku had any involvement in his resurrection, but this is not a positive musing as he has zero trust for the process nor the state of his return and he knows Sengoku is an evil scientist.
  • Has approached Selena Recital about a mission-related opportunity of some sort, knowing that she too is a former soldier who once struggled with revenge. They are not divulging any details about it.
  • Upon Helen's ascension under the name Kolin, he immediately set out to try discovering who she was, which he'd already been wondering, and now who helped her ascend. His next step was to meet up with Chun-Li and Guile, confirming to them that she was the one who had resurrected him. When Guile then explained that he had encountered her while looking for Charlie but she fought him away, the group's suspicions grew further.
  • When a barracks suddenly appeared in the Pantheon with new magic-eyed candidate deities rising from the surface only for a single one, King Bradley, to mow down all the others, Guile and Chun-Li went to investigate his temple, with Charlie tailing them. However, this was a decoy: he helped Selena infiltrate the barracks behind everyone's backs before backing his friends. He was able to barely rescue the two from the onslaught of Father's Homunculi, who had all convened with Bradley at the base.
    • The truth about Bradley's revival was soon disseminated: not only was Bradley another Homunculus, with his sin name being Wrath the Furious, Father used help from Master Xehanort and Gul'dan to both draw Bradley out of the afterlife and to create weaker-powered clones of all the other candidates so Bradley could have a glorious display of his power to secure his ascension. When Bartlet contacted Nash to meet again after this revelation, he took Selena to the meeting, and Jed gave her a knowing glance as he congratulated Charlie on a job well done.
  • Mustang introduced him and Guile to Maes Hughes, Roy's own late glasses-wearing best friend, some time after Maes' ascension to the Pantheon. Aside from relating to each other's discovery of the traitorous elements of their governments, Nash appreciates that Hughes has still maintained his levelheaded demeanor.
    • What he doesn't appreciate, however, is Hughes constantly waving around that Fatal Family Photo. He makes him stop doing that by threatening to kill him. Despite this, Charlie intends to help Maes with getting payback against his actual killer, the shapeshifting homunculus Envy.
  • "If you stand in my way…I will kill you."

    Kessler 
Kessler, The God Who Seeks Death (Cole MacGrath)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kessler_avatar_3472.png
  • Theme: End of the Road
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A Ray Sphere
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, but was originally Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Shock and Awe, Artificial Limbs (an arm though), Can use lightning better than Cole, Flash-stepping everywhere, Light Is Not Good, Genius Bruiser, Badass Grandpa, Time Travel, Doing what was necessary to prepare against The Beast, Atoning his mistakes by being the villain, being the dark future version of Cole himself
  • Domains: Lightning, Delivery, Time, Knowledge, Evil Counterparts
  • Heralds: The First Sons
  • High Priests: Kratos, The Nameless One
  • Allies: Samaritan, Ozymandias
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: SCP-1440, Dark Danny, Most villains, especially Omnicidal Maniacs.
  • Commonality Connection with: Portgas D. Ace, Deadshot, Jellal
  • Opposed by: Majority of the House of Time and Space and Prophecy. This heavily extends to Chromie, Clockwork and Nozdormu
  • Enemies: Cole MacGrath, Alex Mercer, Eneru, Billy Baston/Shazam
  • Not So Different from: Lord Gwyn
  • A man of an unknown past, Kessler was one of Cole's first enemies he hunted down in his story. While fighting him, he had no idea of his origins and his motives, until the reveal came up, in which he is an alternate version of Cole but in a terrible future, where his girlfriend and kids are dead by the Beast. And to make up for this, he became a villain to correct his mistakes. Not only did this reveal give Cole a Heroic BSoD, but gave him a potential spot in the Pantheon.
    • But what did give him a spot in the Pantheon was his objective to search for another alternative Cole (aka the one he's fighting against) and fight him to the death in order to see if he's worthy against The Beast, in which is a sign that he wants to end his miserable life. This became his marking spot in entering Pantheonic grounds.
  • During his first day of ascension, he wanted to bring his army, the First Sons into the Pantheon to secure his position. It failed, but the Main House agreed to only keep them as heralds for now, as what they would be ascended for will be unknown.
  • As the evil, alternate version of Cole, he seeks Cole MacGrath for more preparations to come. He has been trying his best to avoid Kessler as much as he can, since he has vehemently hated him as him, but on a darker past. Because of this, his searches on Cole has become aggressive, to the point of harming his allies to attract him down.
    • On a larger note, the reason why he wants to fight Cole is to prepare him for a larger entity known as the Beast. Sadly for him, the Pantheonic Cole is still the weaker version, meaning it will take more than just simple confrontations to "train" him down under.
    • However, he also doesn't like the fact that this Cole also has two sides, Good and Evil, mostly on the Evil one, since later on, it absorbs the Beast's power to became the new beast. Making his confrontation and objective All for Nothing. He's planning to see which side he can control.
  • While he is a Death Seeker, his ascension to the Pantheon rather left him in disappointment, as his wishes in death weren't entirely fulfilled (since the Pantheon had to revive him just to claim his position). However, upon hearing of many powerful deities in the Pantheon, as well as Cole himself, this has given him motivation to become the villain once more, and forewarning to the presence of The Beast.
    • Thanks to this discovery, he's sometimes seen having chatting sessions with Portgas Ace. Both have seeked death once in their life (though he got better by Luffy, but still died anyway) and have to deal with the fact that they have to live once more even though they want to stay dead (because its the Pantheon's Death Is Cheap status). Thankfully, he shares his sympathies with him too.
    • Jellal and Deadshot also visits him, as they were also Death Seekers at their own primes. The former however sees danger in him, since he reminds him of Mystogan, Jellal's otherworldly counterpart.
  • Studying the Pantheon for potential candidates he can use to merge Cole into, he has looked on a few potentials:
    • He finds Alex Mercer to be the true candidate for confrontation since his virus powers can prove worth for fighting against Cole. Problem is, he's also hated by him for reminding him too much of Cole even though he's actually Cole from another universe. He's only bidding his time for the two to fight to the death and see who's worth.
  • His ability to Time Travel at will, along with going back in time to the current Cole has earned him a heavy ire towards most gods in the House of Time and Space. This is because while he may have time traveled to warn him of a Bad Future, his actions and atrocities against Cole alongside his manipulation of the prophecy of The Beast was almost against most morals for the keepers of time. Nozdormu and most especially Clockwork have placed him on probation should he attempt to use his powers again.
  • Shazam has placed a huge watchlist on him, as his powers and his First Sons reminds him greatly of Black Adam. Because of this, the two clash, though Kessler admits Shazam may have great potential.
  • Despite being oddly similar, he has a mixed relation with Dark Danny. They may be similar in terms of characteristics, with Dark Danny being the future of the phantom himself and Kessler being Cole's future self in an alternate universe, but in objectives, thats where the comparison ends. Kessler only wanted to fight Cole, so that he could prepare him for the Beast but for Dark Danny, he only wants to cause destruction at his own will. This placed both on odds against each other.
  • Due to his objective with Cole and his actions, he's almost compared to Lord Gwyn, possible for many similarities, such as using the good guys as tools (Kessler for Cole, and Gwyn for most humans), going to heavy lengths to acheive their goals, (being the villain for the former and the latter forcing chosen undead to be fed into the fire) and being extremely powerful in their own right. However, this did not sit well for the Old King, as he still sees Kessler nothing more but a human.
  • With his plans of seeking new allies, he has planned to join many other villains, but only if they will fight with him against the Beast. Anyone else that are too evil for his tastes are taken down with no mercy. Just ask him about his first encounter with Eneru.
    Kessler: Anyone who allies with me must follow me to death. If you aren't worthy, stay out of our path.
    • Because of this, Samaritan and Ozymanidas have joined in his crusade against the ultimate threat. The latter expresses his sentiments to Kessler's current life, something most villains wouldn't do.
    • As a result, his resume to the GUAE has been on hold as most villains sees him as not evil enough. Melkor is disappointed upon hearing that another potential candidate was not worthy for his alliance.
  • "I've always been there, Cole. Every step of your life."

    Mami Tomoe 
Mami Tomoe, High Prophet of Early Deaths (Candeloro)

  • Theme Song: Credens Justitiam, but when being really badass, Mirai and Absolute Congifuration.

  • Enemies: Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke, Masashi Sudo/Kamen Rider Scissors, Ninethe Phantom.
  • High Priests: Ryoji Hase/Kamen Rider Kurokage (also a High Priest to Cú Chulainn), Alpha-Church
  • Opposes: Joel
  • Ascended to the Pantheon after aiding in the defeat of a mad prophet called Oriko Mikuni and her mass-murdering, insane compatriot (Kirika Kure, a blade witch) while she kept her resolve to fight as a Puella Magi rather than snapping and killing her teammates... again. Mami is thankful to the young Yuma Chitose for keeping her on the right path.
    • Unfortunatly, Oriko has since ascended to the Pantheon with Kirika as her Herald. Mami has made it clear that she will stop them if they try to kill anyone.
  • She has no malice towards her mortal killer, Charlotte the Dessert Witch, in fact Charlotte has become something of a pet of hers, which she loves in an unconditional fashion. In turn, Charlotte is rather protective of Mami's well-being... And gets a lot of cheese.
  • She and Kyouko Sakura use to be old friends and a team. Much has happened, but they have recently reconciled that friendship. Litchi notes that when the two of them are together... they are more like sisters than friends. Kyouko agrees.
    • In a somewhat hilarious example, this was partially what lead her to become friends with Squigly, as she's almost like a more lady-like version of Kyoko.
  • Being High Prophet of Early Deaths, Her task in the pantheon is to hear the life and times of the forgotten... to allow their passing. If she deems them worthy, subjects can be given a chance to fight for their credentials (which was denied in the mortal life).
  • Part of her past time is spent practising Gun Kata with Noel, particularly to increase her awareness in combat, is a regular customer at Iroh's tea-hut, meets with Litchi and Paio II ( the three of them are becoming known as the 'Boobie Trio') regularly. Mami made lots of friends since her Ascension and is really glad she won't be alone any longer.
    • This is very important as any misteps about her being lonely would result in her turning into Candeloro. Thankfully, with someone as kind as Litchi near her, the chances of her turning into that seems... low.
    • Recently, it was revealed that Paio was flat chested, and the ownership was relegated to Litchi, leaving the group down to the two of them. Fortunately, Paio's place was quickly filled by Sona Buvelle, so technically they're still a trio. Mami herself has come to enjoy Sona's music plays.
  • Nanoha and Fate once watched how Mami died once. They were REALLY scared. It seemed to provoke their motherly instincts, but they're not sure why. Mami doesn't talk a lot about that...
  • Is rather glad that her sempai, Usagi, has returned to the pantheon. Kyouko can't help but tease her about it.
  • As Eddard Stark was horrified to find that she met a similar fate as his, he decided to act as surrogate father to her. Ned feels that she reminds him of his own daughters.
  • Ever since Madoka befriended Beerus the Seventh God of Destruction, poor Mami now has to prepare ten time the treats for the Afternoon Tea Parties she holds Every Thursday because he is a Big Eater who can out-eat Son Goku himself. Mami counts her blessings that Beerus is largely indifferent about the Apple Pies she bakes for Kyouko; she simply can't handle the repair bills like King Kai did for his ravaged planet if Kyouko loses her temper about it.....
  • Prior to The Great Upheaval, Mami has refined her already powerful yet graceful fighting style to the definition of deadly-elegance by studying under Doctor Wong Fei-Hung, the Tenth Tiger of Canton; having Jet Li, his most beloved avatar as a classmate really helps.
  • Guan Yu allegedly taught Mami the secret to keeping those impossible fabulous twin-corkscrew tails nice-and-curled even in combat. Mami has not remarked on said matter, but nonetheless states she enjoys the company of The Warrior God as a scholar and a gentleman.
  • Has formed a strong friendship with the recently ascended Coyote Starrk, noting the similarities between both their fighting styles and desire for companions. She's one of the few gods in the Pantheon, aside from his Herald Lilynette, who can force him to actually get off his butt and do something. As such, he's a frequent guest at her Afternoon Tea Parties.
    • He has also taken to training both her and Noel in taking the art of Gun Kata to the next level, something about learning her own version of Cero Metralleta...
    • When she heard that Starrk had been recently seen around the GUAC, she expressed a deep sense of worry for his safety because it was she who convinced him to join as a spy at the request of Madoka to try to both find out more about Lucifer's plans and get close to Homura. Even so, she's fearful of what the fallout of these actions might mean.
  • Uneasy around her new friend Ms. Fortune considering Fortune's disturbing condition and that she sometimes dresses up as Mami.
  • Dislikes Joel ever since he made fun of her face, considering what happened to her, and decided to obliterate him at one of his fighting tournaments.
  • She kinda took a shine to Android 17 for awhile because he likes to use guns (albeit not against any serious opponents), but really warmed up to him and 18 after seeing their performance in the Tournament of Power, seeing the two repeatedly step up to the plate for each other and their teammates, 18 even knocking out a Magical Girl out of love for her husband, and ultimately sacrifice themselves for the good of the team, with 17 even giving up his life. When Usagi proposed the Sisterhood accept them as allies, Mami was one of the quickest to approve.

Masashi Sudo, God of Quickly Killed-Off Characters (Kamen Rider Scissors, Mr. Crabs, Crab Cop)

Kamen Rider Scissors 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Scissors Advent Deck
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Being an Utterly Depraved Corrupt Cop, Jerkass, Starter Villain, Joke Character, quickly killed off, Mauve Shirt, existed only to show jerkass Riders and contract-breaking consequences, fights with Scissors Pincers, fed others to his monster and died the same way
  • Domains: Combat, Corruption, Mirrors, Crabs, Death Games, Tragedy

  • There are several candidates for this trope, but while it's not saying much, Masashi Sudo a.k.a. Kamen Rider Scissors, has had more action than any of them, comparatively speaking.
    • He was first found when there have been reports of people going missing, eyewitnesses seeing them disappear in areas with mirrors and glass, and some resurrected victims describing a crab-themed Kamen Rider. Two certain Kamen Riders were immediately on the case, remembering all too well who it was. One battle later, after yet another Deck-breaking and consumption by his own Contract Monster, Sudo was resurrected by request of SHOCKER, and got him ascended. Sudo's annoyed that he was hardly known before he died, but he's here now, so he figured he'd make the best of it.
  • Shinji and Ren were not happy to see him around. While they have since surpassed him in terms of power, his penchant for feeding people to his monster doesn't sit well with them. Asakura is just vexed that another cop (regardless of lawfulness) has made it to the Pantheon. As for Kitaoka, his amicable relations with the former two is reason enough for Sudo to be enemies with him. And because he once kidnapped his sister Yui, Shiro Kanzaki has also opposed him.
  • Sudo has made absolutely sure to keep his Advent Deck protected and his Contract Monster well-fed to avoid a repeat incident of his own death. The Grand United Alliance Of Evil usually 'earn' his'loyalty' by handing over failures of minions for Volcancer to feast upon.
  • Masashi Sudo was a detective, using his job to effectively cover up his illegal activities, disposing of any witnesses to his acts. And he only got worse when he got his Advent Deck. For all the murders he has committed, the House of Justice despises him for that.
  • Mr. Krabs doesn't get why Sudo has a nickname similar to his own name, but knows he doesn't want a crook like him around the Krusty Krab.
  • Coco Reeve and Miranda Campbell are also characters that have been quickly killed off, but they refuse to be associated with the corrupt cop. The same goes for Kisaragi from the same house, who used to hold the title he holds now.
  • Mami was particularly cross when a picture of her and him circulated the Pantheon. Both their deaths were certainly messages to their series protagonist (Madoka Kaname/Shinji Kido) about the dangers of being who they are (Puella Magi/Advent Deck!Kamen Rider), but that's all.

  • Flonne, upon becoming an Archangel, recommended Artina's ascension. Initially, the other gods were afraid that Artina would be just like her superior, but were relieved to find out that she's a lot more level-headed.
  • Artina has been banned from the House of Commerce for helping Robin Hood steal from the Sheriff of Nottingham and other gods, though this hasn't stopped her from making visits to the House of Crime to plot their next heist.
    • When confronted by the members of the House of Justice, she defends it by saying that they're only collecting illegal funds and nothing more than that. When asked for proof, she always has the proper paper work detailing the various illegal transfers and transactions. The paperwork is so convoluted that some members just want to ignore her crime so that they don't have to bother looking at it. That and the fact that many of her targets tend to deserve it makes some look the other way.
    • Flonne is often asked if it is alright for her subordinate to engage in theft, though Flonne is more concerned that Artina and Robin Hood have yet come up with a name for their partnership.
  • Now acts as a "care taker" for the "Hinimizawa Club Members", being responsible for preventing them from wrecking havoc when in their "infected" state. Rika has provided her with Hinimizawa Syndrome medication (always in syringe form) for this purpose.
    • While Shion is the most psychotic when infected, Rena and her freakish strength and affinity for fire was the reason she was chosen. It helps that Artina rarely feels any fear when it comes to tending those in need.

  • In the comic universe, there was a common saying; Nobody stays dead in comics except for Jason Todd, Bucky Barnes and Uncle Ben. Well, the last one stayed true, at least...
  • Jason Todd met Batman when he was caught trying to steal the tires off the Batmobile. Impressed by the sheer nerve of the act, Batman inducted him into the Bat Family as the second Robin, since Dick had become Nightwing. Beaten to near death by the Joker with a crowbar before getting killed in an explosion, Jason Todd's death has always been seen as one of Batman's greatest failures and has haunted him his entire life. Even after he was brought back to life by a Lazarus Pit and took on a new identity as the Red Hood, his death is a cruel reminder of how truly dangerous being a young sidekick to a hero is. And he wouldn't be the last reminder.
  • Jason's mental health was a bit of a problem back in the day. At the best of times, he can pretty much act like an Anti-Hero. But at his worst, he can sometimes act just as villainous as many of the bad guys he killed. Most likely this was caused by the Lazarus Pit which has a well know side effect of causing mental problems to whoever it resurrects. Though, lately he has pretty much been in the more Anti-Hero/Antivillain side. Mostly.
    • Wait, you thought he was resurrected by Superboy-Prime punching reality? Don't be silly.
  • Pretty much hates most members in the House of Crime. Though, there are exceptions like Vi who is a reformed criminal and Isaac and Miria who don't cause any harm in their robberies. He is actually trying to figure a way to send the more sympathetic criminals away so that he can blow up the entire house with some C4.
    • He made a preempted strike to the house when he killed most of Balaika's men from Hotel Moscow. To further the insult, he delivered their heads back to the Russian Don, leaving a message that the entire house was next. This left Balaika very angry and she swore vengeance on Jason for killing her men.
  • Has stayed far away from the rest of the ascended Bat family. Some mistakenly believe he doesn't interact with Bruce because he still hates him for failing to save him. That's not true. What he hates is that he never avenged his death by killing the Joker. The only member he even has minimal contact with is Alfred who is known to always leave a hot meal for the "fallen" Robin.
  • Atleast some of Jason's problem stems from his inferiority complex towards Dick Grayson, feeling that he will never live up to him in Bruce's eyes.
  • Has found Beast Boy's constant pestering that he is Red X utterly annoying. Even when he tells him he isn't him, BB is still convince it's him.
  • Has been notice to sound just like Dean Winchester. Though, his voice went through a bit of a change. Now he sounds like Batman, Nightwing, Red Robin, and even The Joker. Let's say Jason doesn't like the voice change that much.
  • Gained rivals in both Deadpool and Revy. The former because he feels Jason stole his style in that one awesome Batman adaptation and Revy who is under contract of Hotel Moscow to kill him. The three even had a three way fight that ended with all parties injured and left a bit of the pantheon in ruins.
  • Has been seen hanging around with Shinji Ikari for some odd reason. Though, Yui Ikari is apprehensive about her son hanging around Jason.
  • Jason has allied himself with Hikage. The two have been know to rough up a few mooks that they encounter.
  • Has required special 'Magic Bullets' from Kiritsugu Emiya to counter any baddies with magic abilities.
  • What's Jason's most cherished memory? Coming down with the Flu as a child and, after being told he can't come on patrol, having Bruce surprise him and spending a night in together.
  • To say that Jason hates the Joker would be an understatement. Either he wants the clown beaten to the inch of his life, begging for it before Jason ends it... or he wants Batman himself to kill the Joker to prove his point.
  • An alternate version of Jason was revealed who instead of being killed by the Joker, was tortured by him for over a year under Arkham. The torture was so horrendous, it made him hate Bruce, believing he abandoned him. It also made him more villainous and traumatized than his comic version as he came back as the Arkham Knight with a whole army (that he trained himself) and worked with Scarecrow to inflict the entire city of Gotham with fear gas and put Barbara Gordan's life in danger. All to get revenge on Bruce.
  • Oppose any deities who have forgiven their villains no matter how much they have ruined their lives. Like Naruto Uzumaki and Madoka Kaname. Saying someone is a "cool guy" despite being the cause of your parents' death and not punishing a race for harvesting little girls doesn't sit well with Jason.
    • He also doesn't understand why the GUAG would even have a group of Token Evil Teammate. Which is ironic since he would fit right in that group.

Private Jenette Vasquez, Goddess of Expendable Tomboys

  • Domain(s): Tomboys, Military, Sacrifice

  • High Priestess: Rain Ocampo
  • Followers: Cpl. Jane Proudfoot, FBI Agent Naomi Misora, Kathryn O'Brien, Trudy Chacon, Dizzy Flores, Dayna Jurgens, Isolde, Pauline Mikado

  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: All non-evil alien deities, "Uncle Bob" T-800
  • Ripley and Hicks were surprised to hear that another candidate from their universe was going to ascend to the Pantheon. Both dreaded that it might be perhaps the Xenomorph Queen or someone else at Weyland-Yutani. Thankfully, it turned out to be one of the marines in the mission at LV-426; Jenette Vasquez. Trope she ascended for; Vasquez Always Dies, a trend where in a group, the least feminine girl in it tends to kick the bucket while the most feminine one makes it to the end, though there have been subversions to that trend.
    • Vasquez doesn't mind this, since she's reunited with not only Ripley and Hicks, but also her sister Carmen, who also "fell" in battle to the Xenomorphs just like her, and now serves as her herald.
  • Sarah and John Connor had to check twice in their encounters with Vasquez, somehow almost mistaking her for John's foster mom Janelle Voight, who was as far from being a tomboy as can be from Vasquez. By extension, she's come to know about SKYNET and the Terminators thanks to them.
  • Prior to joining the military, she was (probably) an illegal immigrant from outside the USA. She lived the life of a street gangster, which ultimately led to her committing murder at a young age and being sent to juvenile prison. As part of the Service or Jail Act, in order to avoid further detention, she enlisted in the USCM. As such, she makes time to help young individuals struggling from the same issues that had affected her in her youth.
  • As a soldier tasked with killing aliens, not to mention her experiences in LV-426, she's slow to trust any extraterrestrial, regardless of alignment.
  • Aside from her smart gun, Vasquez has a Smith & Wesson Model 39 with ivory grips for a sidearm.
  • Given who portrayed her, some wonder how stacked is she actually. Of course, no one thinking to ask has gathered the courage to.
  • Given her track record against the Xenomorphs, X-COM has also thought of recruiting her. Given that Weyland-Yutani considered her and the rest of her squad expendable, even though X-COM tends to lose its operatives quite a bit in their operations, Vasquez immediately signed up.
    • Among the allies she's made while there was Iji Kataiser. The Berserker one, that is. Vasquez is both impressed with her massive kill count of over 300 alien soldiers as well as the weapon she used to kill them with yet at the same time concerned that this was all at the young age of 20 (to Vasquez's 26) over the course of a single day (or a few), not to mention how much it affected her psyche. As for the Pacifist one, Vasquez is puzzled with her…dubious no-kill code, but the Berserker vouched for her since the aliens they fought were speech-capable and can be reasoned with to an extent and that between the two, it's the Pacifist aspect that managed to stop Earth from being wiped of life by way of Alpha Strike, whereas her rage at the time went too far and killed the only one who can call it off, dooming her planet as a result.
    • Another person she has high regards for among X-COM's allies is the Tactician due to his/her regard for soldiers' lives. While Weyland-Yutani considered its employees and even soldiers expendable, the Tactician gives a damn about each and every single unit under his/her command (though neutral forces not under his/her command can be another matter). However, getting his/her assistance is rare due to the stress X-COM missions take on him/her.

  • Enemies: I-No, Courtney Gear, HYDRA, Embryo
  • Conflicting Alliance: Kaito Kumon
  • Once the partner of Tsubasa Kazanari in not only as the music group Zwei Wing, but also in eliminating the Noise. The two were inseperable. Unfortunately, Kanade sacrifice herself to both save a young Hibiki Tachibana and destroy a horde of Noise. Her death deeply effected Tsubasa. And for a while, turned her very bitter and angry.
  • When Kanade first ascended to the Pantheon, she went straight to the House of Music, being informed that her old partner was also in the pantheon. When Tsubasa first saw Kanade, she was in brief denial that Kanade was truly in the Pantheon. However, once she was sure she was real, Tsubasa broke down in tears, hugging her once dead partner. Kanade, taken aback, also hugged Tsubasa, tears of her own falling down. Kanade was proud at Tsubasa growth and that she could soar on her own. Because of this, she has kept her distance from Tsubasa. Though, she still hangs out with her on occasion.
    • Kanade became fast freinds with both Chris, Hibiki and Miku and each gave them a hug and thank them for being friends with Tsubasa. Kanade was also surprise when she found out that the girl she saved from that Noise way back became a Symphogear user. She felt bad that a piece of the Gungnir embedded itself in Hibiki's chest and threaten her life. However, Hibiki has zero ill will over it.
  • It should be noted that Kanade does not own Gungnir. She ok with it as she feels Tsubasa and her friends can handle things without her.
    • Though, if the GUAG were to ever take a peice out of Odin's own Gungnir...Who knows.
  • Kanade was a bit surprise when she found out that two members of Suite Pretty Cure, another music theme magical girl warriors, share the exact name as her and Hibiki. What ever the case, she became friends to the four girls.
  • Even though Kanade doesn't wield a spear any more, she has made allies with some. These includes Kyoko Sakura, Cu Chuclainn, Karna, Niko Pyrrha and even Odin, the wielder of Gungnir. She is however more close to Kyoko since she sympathize with her tragic family life. She also learned, being lancer is suffering.
    • Her relationship with Kaito Kumon is a bit rocky. While she does feel for his trouble past, that whole trying to destroy the world really put a damper in any interacting. Though, he no longers desire it.
  • While not a bad person, Kanade first became a Symphogear user so she could avenge her family who were killed by the Noise. However, she started to like helping people and that it felt good doing it. She actually became friends with Iona Hikawa who lost her powers but regained new ones that was power by love and liking that feeling.
  • Gets along very well with Kamina. Might be because they are both dead partners for Tsubasa and Simon and decoy protagonists in their series.
  • While not as close to the FIS Children compare to Tsubasa, Hibiki and Chris, Kanade still became friends with the three, especially with Maria since their lives had parallel yet divergence life.
  • Has often perform in the House of Music, sometimes singing together with Tsubasa.
  • There are some who have notice Kanade sounds a bit like Pit.
  • Cloud Strife has remarked that Kanade's out going personality reminds him of his long past friend, Zack Fair.

  • Portfolio: Affably Evil, Ambition Is Evil, Big Eater, Big Fun, Face–Heel Turn, Fat Bastard, Flunky Boss, Unwitting Pawn, Walking Spoiler

  • Allies: Tommy Vercetti, Those who fell into ambition
  • Enemies: The House of Justice, Franklin Clinton, Trevor Phillips, Hotel Moscow, Niko Bellic
  • On good terms: The House of FAITH
  • Complicated Relationships: Carl Johnson
  • Melvin Harris, also known as Big Smoke, was once the right hand man of Sweet Johnson and a loyal member of the Grove Street Families. However, Smoke later was corrupted by the ambition of being powerful and famous and decided to side with the corrupt cops of C.R.A.S.H. and organized the death of the mother of his best friends. However, even after he got what he wanted, he was struck down by CJ and realized that everything he did was become he became addicted to power and died saying that everyone was going to remember his name. His friend CJ regrets killing him but it was something that had to be done.
  • The House of Justice has kept a close eye on Big Smoke after his rise of power in the crack empire. However, since his mortal his influence has died down overtime and he might not even try to regain his power back.
  • CJ was confused when he saw his old buddy Smoke around the pantheon and actually confronted him. He hasn't forgotten that he was the one that betrayed him but Smoke actually regrets his actions. However, they decided to cut ties and never speak again.
  • Big Smoke ascension didn't sit well with a few other deities from his home franchise. Franklin found Smoke having too many similarities with Stretch, the man who constantly set up his friend Lamar and Trevor doesn't like him because of how he betrayed his friends (He doesn't take betrayal lightly). Niko Bellic is also another one who doesn't like Smoke, given his backstabbing actions remins him a lot of Dimitri Rascalov.
    • On the other hand, Tommy Vercetti is open to make negotiations with Smoke, provided he becomes one of his henchmen in the drug business. Smoke is considering the offer, but doesn't want to fall into the same trap as before.
  • He is not welcome in the House of Friendship given his betrayal. Big Smoke agrees this is a fair punishment.
  • He doesn't have the best relationships with Hotel Moscow, mostly because he had a few run-ins with the Los Santos Russian mafia and even tasked his friends CJ in getting rid of a few members for him.
  • Smoke can be often found in the House of Food, not surprising given his love for eating. He always makes a particular order everytime he goes.
  • It is adviced to never enter his temple without his permission. He has become very paranoid ever since his mortal death and since he no longer has the Ballas protection, you'll be surprised at what he is going to do to you.
  • People have asked him about following the damn train. He still blames CJ for those countless failures.
    • It's not unlikely to see Smoke in the House of Travel chasing trains.
  • Apparently he is a devout christian, so he sometimes visits the house of FAITH. He can believe that he became a god after death, so he must be right that people would remember his name.
  • "Respect has to be earned Sweet. Just like money."
  • Can also be found in the House of Ambiguity.

Quasideities

    Seita and Setsuko 
Seita and Setsuko Yokokawa, Guardians of Dead Children
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seitasetsuko.jpg
Setsuko (left) and Seita (right)
  • Quasideities
  • Symbol: Fireflies; Setsuko's candy tin
  • Theme Song: "Home Sweet Home"
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Tragic child death, the horrors of war, Foregone Conclusion, downer stories, The Woobie
  • Domains: Children, Siblings, Death, War, Tragedy, Empathy, the Afterlife
  • High Priestess: Little Maria
  • Allies: The other Studio Ghibli deities, particularly Satsuki and Mei Kusakabe and Totoro, Toriel, Charles Dickens, Charlie Barkin, Mako Shiraishi/Shinken Pink, Hansel and Gretel
  • Oppose: The House of War, Cole Phelps, America
  • Seita and Setsuko are two siblings who lost their parents in World War II. Being far too young to live by themselves, they moved in with their aunt. Since they didn't earn their keep and times were trying, she eventually drove them away. Seita and Setsuko were forced to fend for themselves in the streets, living in a cave and stealing food. This being wartime Japan, food was scarce and there was no compassion to spare for the orphans. In the end, Seita's efforts were in vain and he had to bury his little sister Setsuko after she starved to death, while he lost his will to live and followed her shortly.
  • Few things evoke a sense of tragedy quite like the sight of a child dying. Accordingly, Grave of the Fireflies is one of the most notorious Tear Jerkers of all time. In the midst of the Pantheon bawling their eyes out at a screening of the film, someone drew attention to the Death of a Child trope and how Seita and Setsuko were just the perfect representatives for it, as unlike the vast majority of examples, they aren't just disposable side characters that only exist to motivate the hero, but protagonists themselves. Besides the fact that their tale is really important and considered a classic. Thus the Main House unanimously decided that they should be ascended from their status in limbo and well cared for after their trials in the mortal realm.
  • It is said that every time a child dies, these two will be there to guide them to the afterlife, with fireflies floating around them to light the path.
  • It may seem contradictory, but Seita and Setsuko's story is not, in fact, a dissertation on how war is terrible and must be stopped. It's also not a guilt trip to get rebellious teens to obey their parents. The real aesop of the children's tale is about the need for empathy among people even at the worst of times.
    • The anti-war advocates of the Pantheon will still invoke Seita and Setsuko's story as an argument even so. The siblings don't necessarily mind; after all, war did take their parents from them and put them in that horrible situation. They know all too well now that in any war, people will suffer through things no one, including children like them, should have to.
    • Seita was very patriotic in life, but considering that didn't help him or Setsuko even a bit, and how he learned about the Axis and their atrocities at the Elysium Academy, he has more conflicted feelings now. He still can't forgive the Allies for causing his parents' deaths though. He's not interested in revenge though, he just wants to live in peace with Setsuko.
      • Seita can't bring himself to have a high opinion of deities who fought on the Allies side. He's profoundly annoyed by America's boisterousness and casting himself as "the hero"; Seita feels that America is just a bully. He was also disturbed at Cole Phelps' history of ordering the flamethrower on his squad to attack a Japanese makeshift hospital (considering his mother died in one of these), even if it was by accident (Phelps thought the cave wasn't a hospital and was full of Japanese soldiers) and Cole feels terrible about it.
  • They don't have all that much in common with their fellow Ghibli deities, considering how unfantastical and brutally realistic their home universe is. Still, they managed to make good friends with Satsuki and Mei Kusakabe who lived around the same time period, so they have an understanding, if vague on account of their age, of the harshness Seita and Setsuko had to go through. Seita thinks the sisters make better playmates for Setsuko than him. The Kusakabe sisters have tried introducing them to Totoro, however while Setsuko can see him fine (and often takes naps on top of him), Seita's innocence is so broken down from his experiences that he can barely perceive the spirit (though even without that he might be too old to see Totoro in the first place).
  • Being two of the biggest woobies in history leads to a number of deities wanting to look after them. Toriel is an obvious one, as she tends to mother all "lost" child deities. Mako of the Shinkenger is also always checking on them and wanting to comfort them. Setsuko definitely enjoys their attentions and Seita is happy for her, though Seita at fourteen is growing a bit too proud to allow himself to indulge in this, even if he dearly misses their mother. He's more drawn to Charlie Barkin for his tough, street-smart style, which Seita wishes he had when he was living alone with Setsuko (also it probably helps that like the siblings, Charlie knows what it's like to be dead).
  • As an author who's always sympathetic to the plights of children, Charles Dickens finds their tale very interesting and is seriously considering writing a tract against war in his next book. In the meantime, Seita has expressed interest in reading Oliver Twist.
  • Anyone who gets the bright idea of harming these two is sure to become a target of the wrath of the entire Pantheon (well, the good deities, anyway). But considering the two siblings don't have anything of value to offer, they don't have any real enemies in the first place.
  • The House of Food reports that they are fairly big eaters, which is understandable considering how the war forced them to ration food and they both starved to death. In their frequent excursions to the House, the siblings have become friends with residents Hansel and Gretel, themselves a brother-sister duo where the brother takes good care of the sister.
    • Incidentally, the House decided to stock on Setsuko's favorite candy tins since the siblings' ascension; Setsuko's own candy tin automatically refills through Pantheon magic.
