- Enemies: Everyone and everything.
- Once a simple lonesome child that did not react to outside stimuli, he was taken by a group of cultists tired of the happiness brought by the 5th Heaven and were planning to supplant her with a new god. Purchased as a slave and then given the divine title of Hajun, he was then mummified and buried alive within a five-fold mausoleum where not even a sliver of light could reach. But Hajun's soul was far more powerful than the cultists realized. The world or its sensations did not matter to him and he only found comfort in his own solitude. This desire for solitude, however, was denied him even withing his mausoleum due to the ever-present sensation of his brother, known only as the Tumor, existing within him remained an ever-present irritation. This constant irritation eventually led him to madness and eventually lashed out as he ascended to become a god, mistaking the nagging phantom voice of his brother as the embrace of the 5th Heaven leading him to kill her and her guardians with only Tenma Yato escaping followed by him seizing the Throne.
- Hajun's lawnote , Manji Mandala Muryou Taisuu, is perhaps the most destructive law that has ever been emanated from the Throne. Born from his desire for solitude, it causes all living beings, regardless of their scale and family relation, begin to kill each other. From humans to animals and even insects. In addition, within his Law, souls cannot exist, causing those who die to never reincarnate as well as preventing new ones from being born. A slaughter-fest on a multiversal scale, and it will continue until only Hajun is left. The only thing preventing this from happening was the Law of Tenma Yato that forced everything to a standstill, preventing Hajun's from being completed.
- Just as in his home-world, his ascension to the Pantheon was equally as violent, feeling the deities that reside within as a presence he cannot accept. While he was eventually subdued by the Pantheon's most powerful members, the GUAD took notice of him and his abilities and quickly put him within their ranks without Hajun's consent. However, due to his extremely maddened and all rejecting nature, he is treated more like an attack dog than a true member.
- Despite him being subdued, however, it was noted that there was a sudden rise of unexplainable egotism within the Pantheon, with deities doing things mostly just to stroke their own egos even with seemingly altruistic actions. Hajun was quickly found to be the cause due to a secondary feature of his Law. In essence, he is so egotistical that everyone else turns egotistical as well by him merely existing.
- The White have especially taken an interest in Hajun, seeing him not only as capable of bringing the Law vs Chaos conflict they so despise to an end but also be able to do so in a way that can be viewed as heavily ironic, in essence bringing it to its logical conclusion. This is seen as especially dangerous due to the fact that as a natural law, none would even notice if Muryou Taisuu was emanated. Everyone would just spontaneously start killing each-other and through their eyes, it would seem like that is how it always has been, and anyone thinking otherwise would be seen as crazy and going against the natural order of things.
- Might be the single biggest Omnicidal Maniac in the pantheon. More so than Lord English who destroys ghosts, more so than the Anti-Monitor who can at least be communicated with. Hajun will destroy everyone but himself and is completely unreasonable. The only souls to equal his madness are Majin Buu (and even then he can at least be distracted with candy) and Giygas, who shares immense power driving it completely insane and seeking to mindlessly destroy everything it can. Dharkon felt him to be a similarly apocalyptic force of chaos and destruction that wants to shape reality to its devastating will. It is unknown whether he recognizes their similarity or is even capable of it, but it's safe to say he doesn't care. Which is probably for the best, as teaming up with them would be a nightmarish scenario the pantheon might finally fall to.
- Despite what may be initially believed, Lucifer holds Hajun in quite a bit of disdain. Since Lucifer desires chaos and free will above all, not wholesale slaughter, he finds the nature of Hajun's law nothing short of tasteless. And to the surprise of no one, YHVH also despises him, being one of the few times he and Lucifer agree on something. Not only does He see Hajun as a threat to his rule but just as a danger in general, to both Him and His chosen. Given how psychotic Hajun is, most agree with YHVH's assessment of him.
- The GUAD is the only group that can remotely have some influence over his direction, and that's only because their entire ethos is the extinction of all life. Melkor knows from personal experience dealing with Ungoliant an alliance with someone as determined in their desire to destroy as Hajun cannot be swayed over to his side. And he feels if anyone's going to take that Throne and bring about the end of everything, it's going to be him. The Grand United Alliance of Good and Grand United Alliance of Machines simply responded with "we think the destruction of everything is a bad thing".
- He really hates being touched, as in really, really hates it. And unfortunately for everyone, Hajun has a very loose definition of what constitutes as touched. At times, just being in the same realm as him is enough to make him feel like his personal space has been violated. Even Zamasu, who's ego has him loathe mortals that touch him, thinks he needs to cool off. Whether this is projection and hypocrisy from his part, or even Zamasu thinks he's insane is unclear. In fact, it could be both. Most think it's the former because he also ranted about "what do you expect when a mortal gets divine power?"
- One thing many deities in the pantheon tries to make bloody sure of is that Hajun and Gilgamesh are never in the same room. It is feared that their collective ego would break everything, or at the very least they would end up stuck in one nasty ego competition after the next. Those who are familiar with Hajun's history, however, are quick to point out that the most likely course of events would be that Hajun wouldn't even notice Gilgamesh, being too preoccupied with his own existence despite his omniscience. Even the entire House of Pride and Egotism is one to balk at the Greatest Egoist.
- Some are filled with enough hatred that they'd probably be allies out of admiration for Hajun's hate, were such even possible for the Mad God. Mephisto can relate given that he both is powered by hatred (and Hajun would be an endless source of hatred) and that Mephisto too despises everything and everyone. However, unlike Hajun, Mephisto is cunning enough to actually cooperate and work alongside others with common goals, even if deep down he hates them. Khorne loves(well, the closest thing it can have to love) the endless rage being emitted from Hajun. Asides from that, no-one in the House of Hatred wants anything to do with him. He is simply that irrational.
- In an attempt to pacify Hajun, he is kept in a separate dimensional space by the other deities, and is completely isolated from any outside interference, both direct and indirect. And for the most part, this has proven successful at keeping him calm. Unfortunately, this hasn't stopped some less than virtuous deities from trying to rile him up, most notably Yuuki Terumi tried to get his attention to wreak some havoc. Fortunately, he was stopped before being able to reach Hajun's space, though this hasn't stopped him from trying to do it again or tricking someone else into doing it. Though for now, Hajun lies dormant.
- Nyarlathotep meanwhile decided to fully embrace Hajun, but not only due to Hajun's own nature, but also with consideration to the cult that enabled his rise to power. He states that even in a world driven by inherent goodness where everyone could get a second chance, people still sought evil even within the most ideal of conditions and that it, therefore, is in human nature to always desire evil no matter what.

- Opposed by: The House of Extraterrestrials
- Bastard Understudy Of: Darth Plagueis
- Born on Naboo 82 years before the Battle of Yavin, Palpatine would become the apprentice and eventual usurper of the Sith Master Darth Plagueis. Through his Dark Side alter-ego Sidious, he would mastermind the Invasion of Naboo to get himself the position of Supreme Chancellor, and later use the Clone Wars to rise further in power. Through masterful manipulation and planning, he would accomplish Sith's millennia-old dream of conquering the Star Wars galaxy, and cause the near-extinction of the Jedi. Founding the first Galactic Empire through sheer manipulative bastardry, it came to almost no surprise he would join the Trope Pantheon as the God of The Empire, and The Dark Side.
- Upon his ascension, his former minions, Vader, Thrawn, the Death Star, and the Imperial Missile Boat flocked to his side and once again swore their undying loyalty to him and his goals. This is a source of alarm to many members of the Pantheon, since not only does Palpatine have control over two superweapons, but also Vader's 501st Legion, which gives him the resources needed to stage his own possible revolution against the Pantheon. He is aware that Vader and the 501st are waiting to turn on him, and that Thrawn and the Imperial Missile Boat are carefully looking away should that happen.
- Darth Vader has as of now completely separated himself from following Palpatine even with the blatant subtext of trying to usurp him. This has caused some discord with the Empire, and Palpatine is re-using his interregnum apprentice Count Dooku/Darth Tyrannus to fill the void. Eventually even Dooku would leave him and he even took the Separatist droid army with him. Costing both Palpatine and the GUAE the very large army of droids.
- It's come to light that he may possibly have some involvement with the Empire's remnant, the First Order.
- Apparently VERY overjoyed when he's allowed to be a God, sitting on the Pantheon. Every day, he celebrates by shouting POWERRRRRRRR! UNLIMITED POWERRRRRRRR! while blasting some poor statue (and, Maximilian's underling Selvaria Bles, who attempted a coup d'état to free Maximilian from Palpatine's grip, and he has succeeded in plotting her removal with the help of House Noxus).
- Palpatine is one of, if not the strongest Dark Siders of all time. Of his repertoire of Dark Side abilities, Palpatine's favored attack is Force Lightning; a terrible, hate-filled jolt of electricity used to cause great pain. Zapdos is not amused by his use of this, believing it an affront to electric attacks.
- As with any true Sith, Palpatine is ultimately motivated by power for its own sake, though is very skilled at playing it off as a Reluctant Ruler who established a dictatorship for peace and security. While a member of the GUAE, he's able to pull strings in a lot of the GUAL's endeavors (though for once is honest in saying he's not behind any of YHVH's shenanigans).
- Was very impressed upon reading Barney Stinson's argument for the Galactic Empire and has gotten him a job as an Imperial Propaganda agent. Palpatine's treated him unusually well, though only to keep him on his side.
- Palpatine acknowledges that Melkor emanates the Dark Side, but refuses to believe he's the source of it. He'll still pledge loyalty and attempt to serve as one of his co-dragons, but only to bide his time and usurp the God of Evil.
- Held in disdain towards most alien deities, as his regime is oppressive to non-humans. Palpatine has stated that he doesn't hold the racist views of his enforcers and mainly used it to help keep power. He consider all species to be equal... that is, equally inferior to Palpatine.
- Ultimately, Palpatine considers anyone who serves him disposable if no longer useful. This having happened thrice, it makes one wonder if anyone would want to be his apprentice. Of course, Palpatine's good at using this for his endgame as well.
- Is trying to get all the evil alignment Pantheon members to join him in support of his eventual coup d'état of the Main House, both openly and covertly. So far, he's had some success...
- Naturally, Palpatine has a lot of rivals to contend with. Mainly, he's trying to fight for the position of the Dark Lord in the Pantheon, resulting in him at arms with Sauron and Voldemort. The House of Luck and Fortune is making bets on how will usurp who.
- As one of the most well-known galactic conquerors, he considers Thanos and Frieza rivals, coveting the former's opinion. Frieza isn't concerned, but Thanos knows to be cautious with the seemingly frail old dictator.
- It's been said by his creator that he's essentially the Devil, and his avatar thinks he's worse. So far the Emperor hasn't commented on either assertion.
- Palpatine is also good friends with Aku and Lord Voldemort due to their similar personalities and powers as well as sharing a despotic lust for power. It's very frequent to see them together as a Terrible Trio among the gods and goddesses of the Trope Pantheon.
- Most gods have been curious as to what, if anything, is Emperor Palpatine's first name. Most assumed it was Cosinga like his supposed father, however, it has been revealed as Sheev. Naturally, he doesn't like using it and will use Sith Lightning on you if you make fun of him for it.
- Not particularly fond of the House of Family in general. He found his own to be severely limiting to his ambitions of being a Dark Lord, and thus killed them. It was also the familial love of Vader that got him killed.
- If there is anything good to say about Palpatine, it's that he's a patron of the arts, even the alien arts. He seems genuinely fond of the House of Theater, and can usually be seen there simply enjoying the act. Also, even he thinks that the GUAD is crazy and will pitch in to fight them off, though this is just because there's no point in being the Emperor of a graveyard.
- While Vader shed his mortal coil, some legends state he came back for a time as a series of clones. Time will tell if he's revealed to have tried to make clones for himself, but given his talk of Darth Plagueis it's not unlikely he did try. Plus a few believe he's just too good of a villain to stay dead.
- He's learned that his Empire survived him, but after thirty years it's in a broken remnant not unlike a Rebel group. Palpatine has found this somewhat amusing but otherwise doesn't care because he's not alive to rule it. Except that was just what he wanted everyone to think, as he was actually commanding it to some extent while he was trying to fully ressurect himself.
- Like Cthulhu he has a show which shows his friendlier side, though this may just be propaganda using a puppet. He also does skits on Robot Chicken when he's feeling comical, often showing his more insulting, foul-mouthed, and ill-tempered side.
- Surprisingly, there are times when he does show some camaraderie with some of his fellow Villains, as he is the owner and bartender of the Villain Pub, in which many villains are commonly seen relaxing, complaining about heroes, or discussing various subjects. This is arguably Palpatine at his friendliest, though of course, this aspect of his personality is completely absent in all other situations.
- Has told many people about the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise. As he claims, it's not a story the Jedi would tell you. As other claims, it's always as annoying when he brings it up every time.
- Is now going by a large number of names, including Frank, Alright, Evil, Too Weak, and most prominently, The Senate. Palpatine has nothing to say in response to this. He has responded however with lightning to the face against Beavis and Butthead when they successfully revived the name Darth Syphilis upon examining his face under the hood.
- Is a fan of Mr. Plinkett's reviews, and rumor has it that he has taken the man as a potential apprentice.
- Is one of the most valuable members of the Grand United Alliance of Evil, not only because of his brilliant oratory skills, charisma and utter viciousness, but also because of his ties to other prominent villains in the Pantheon. His place in the Tyrannical Figures sub-house affords him close ties to former Mastermind member Sauron (defected to Darkseid), Thanos (a member of the Grand United Alliance of Destruction) and Big Brother (a member of the Grand United Alliance of Law). Thanks to these connections, Melkor can gain intel on the activities of potential rivals and counter them if need be. However, Palpatine's neighbours are perfectly aware of this and either send back false information or minimal information on non-critical operations with enough truth to occupy Melkor.
- Also present as one of the Dictators in the House of Leadership.
Thouzer, God of Abhorrence Towards Love
, Holy Emperor, Emperor of Nanto)
- Intermediate God
- Symbol: The Holy Cross Mausoleum
- Theme Music: Thouzer's Pyramid, his Lost Paradise theme
- Alignment: Lawful Evil
- Portfolio: A God Am I, Heart in the Wrong Place, Dark and Troubled Past, Straw Vulcan, Evil Sounds Deep
- Domains: Tyrants, War, Mentality
- Allies: Geese Howard & Rugal Bernstein, The Slavers (to some extent)
- Rivals: Raoh, Immortan Joe, Tai Lung
- Worthy Opponent: Kenshiro
- Enemies: Toki, Max Rockatansky, Terra Branford, all ascended children
- Foil to: Zonda
- On generally good terms with: John Kreese
- Nanto Hōoh Ken is just one type of fighting style within the broader spectrum of Nanto Seiken and it is a fighting style that can only have one successor. This was something that Thouzer learned the hard way after inheriting it from Ohgai, the previous user of Nanto Hōoh Ken who was a mentor/father figure to a then-orphaned Thouzer, via killing him. As a result of this, Thouzer vowed to cast aside his emotions and the concept of love was seen as a weakness to him. After playing a role in causing the Nanto Seiken branch to fall apart, Thouzer became a tyrant willing to enslave children and have them build a massive pyramid meant to be both a monument to honor Ohgai and be a symbol of Thouzers reign over the apocalyptic wasteland.
- Thouzer found himself in a rather unusual place some time after his death at the hands of Kenshiro. He wasnt sure how he got here or how he came back to life, but he was told that there were a set of people who were inspired by Thouzers actions and stories and, despite the inevitable resistance that came with trying to get someone like him in the Pantheon, those efforts were rewarded. Thouzer learned what the Pantheon is and the large scope of its setting and figured that while continuing what he had started was an obvious option, it was clear that rebuilding his empire was going to come with some new challenges in addition to what Thouzer had gone up against. Nevertheless, he remained determined to achieve his goals and make his mark where he sees fit.
- Following his resurrection and getting accustomed to the Pantheon, Thouzer figured that the three Hokuto Shinken practitioners that he met in the past would be present and as it turned out, those three had very much refined their skills ever since Thouzer perished at the hands of Kenshiro. While Kenshiro very much understood Thouzers tragic past before becoming a tyrant, it didnt change the fact that Thouzer caused untold misery towards innocents and Kenshiro knew that he would have to battle Thouzer again at some point. As for the other practitioners of Hokuto Shinken, Toki is aware of Thouzers secret (that being a misplaced heart which gave Thouzer Nigh-Invulnerability) and Raoh had gone up against Thouzer in the past, though such battles between the two dont occur all that much given Raohs plans.
- Him kidnapping children and using them for slave labor to build a monument meant to declare himself a powerful figure of a ruined world was met with predictable scorn from deities dedicated to protecting the well-being of children. The Pantheon being home to a number of individuals who value and children and have power comparable to Kenshiro (and the setting mostly being less of a hellscape in comparison) meant that Thouzers attempts to build his monument via child labor were met with much more difficulty than before. This isnt getting to the fact that there are younger deities that are more than capable of putting up a fight against Thouzer, whose martial arts skills are quite formidable as is, if they are at risk of being targeted by him. Even in the face of this, Thouzer has merely brushed off those powerless dissenters as worthless, though he is more than aware of how much of a problem those powered children present towards his goals.
- On that note, one particular deity who despises Thouzer for that aspect of his character was Terra Branford. When she was young, Terra was enslaved and forced to become a murderer against her will. Since then, she has vowed to fight for good and given that she is good with children, she was repulsed that someone like Thouzer would kidnap a lot of children to force them to build a monument in his name. She considers it just as bad as being enslaved to become a killer and she, among others who hold children in high regard, have sworn to take down the Emperor of Nanto and prevent any more children from suffering at his hands.
- Even with the amount of opposition Thouzer has received in regards to child slavery, there are a very small number of individuals who have offered him some additional child victims to go along with Thouzers plans. That group was The Slavers, who were better known for their human trafficking operations pertaining to forced prostitution and while they are content with continuing their own business, they are willing to lend Thouzer a handful of kidnapped children for him to enslave. Thouzer doesnt have much to say about the groups more extreme actions in comparison to his own, but he is willing to have some form of associates in regards to adding to the number of child slaves he has while he conquers other potential locations for him to rule over.
- While the Pantheon is far from the ruined wasteland that Thouzer was used to, it meant that he would end up meeting others who have traversed such locations in addition to those he was previously familiar with. Immortan Joe was one such wastelander who shared much of the same ruthlessness that Thouzer has in addition to performing much worse actions than Thouzer has ever done. While perpetuating child slavery to make a monument for himself was already bad enough for Thouzer, Immortan Joe not only harvests people for milk and blood, but keeps sex slaves for himself and will stop at nothing to become a ruler of an apocalyptic wasteland. As both see themselves as god-like rulers of a desolate world, there is a rivalry going on between the two as to who will become a more feared wasteland leader and while Thouzer has eliminated some of Immortan Joes trusted allies, the latter still has plenty of smarts and has been working on a plan to take down Thouzer without Joe having to confront him directly. Even if Joe and Thouzer are in conflict with each other, it hasnt prevented Thouzer from being foes with Joes arch-enemy Mad Max, who sees Thouzers ambitions and character as no different from Immortan Joe.
- Thouzer ended up sharing quite a bit in common with Geese Howard in terms of how they came to be. Both had someone they cared about when they were young (Ohgai for Thouzer and Geeses mother for Geese) and lost both of them in tragic circumstances (Thouzer having to kill Ohgai to inherit a martial arts skill and Geeses mother succumbing to disease followed by Geese failing to kill his neglectful father), resulting in the both of them growing to become darker individuals seeking power at any cost, with Thouzer becoming The Emperor of Nanto who conquers any part of the wasteland as he sees fit and Geese becoming a crime lord with significant power over the city he lives in. Both are skilled in their respective martial arts and the two managed to see quite a bit in each other to the point that they are quite amicable towards each other. Thouzer also found Rugal to be a formidable fighter, especially since Rugal can pick up on various fighting styles very quickly and Rugal himself has stated that if he were in a wasteland like Thouzer was, he would take over every part of it with the help of his criminal connections and become much more dangerous than he already is.
- While John Kreese is aware of what Hokuto Shinken is thanks to hanging around Jagi, he became just as interested in Nanto Seiken, the various styles associated with it, and how dangerous they are in comparison to Hokuto Shinken. This led him to meet Thouzer and he wanted to see just how potent of a fighting style Nanto Seiken (or more specifically, Nanton, Ho-oh Ken) is. It was there that Kreese learned about Thouzers misplaced heart, how it gave him an advantage against those who dont know of it, and just how ruthless Thouzer is overall. Both also learned of their pasts and how it shaped their merciless mindsets, with Thouzer having to kill his mentor/father figure to inherit a martial arts style and Kreese having a terrible experience during the Vietnam War. That said, Thouzer has grander ambitions of being an emperor as opposed to Kreese looking to rebuild a martial arts school to get back at the people who wronged him. For someone who Thouzer considers to fight in a basic way regardless of underhanded tactics, he saw John Kreese as interesting and while Kreese generally found quite a bit to like about Thouzer in terms of fighting mindset.
- Tai Lung was another martial artist who took a dark path following a traumatic experience in his childhood, though what happened there could be seen as a contrast to what Thouzer went through. Both were raised and trained to become skilled fighters, but while Thouzer was fond of his master from beginning to end and took his murder of Ohgai very poorly after inheriting Nanto Ho-oh Ken from him, Tai Lung was unable to become the Dragon Warrior due to Master Oogway seeing a dark heart in him, resulting in Tai Lung developing a grudge against his former teacher Master Shifu and was willing to take the title by force. With those contrasting backstories in mind, Tai Lung harbors some resentment towards Thouzer for being able to inherit a potent martial arts skill from a caring master when he was young whereas Tai Lung was unable to do such a thing at a young age. A fight ensued and Tai Lungs abilities werent enough to take Thouzer down and after defeating Tai Lung, Thouzer told Tai Lung that Nanto Ho-oh Ken was much more deadly than what Tai Lung had access to and that it would take much more effort to defeat him. This had only given Tai Lung more of a motivation to not only become the Dragon Warrior that he himself believed he was meant to be, but to defeat Thouzer and those who talk down to him in a potential rematch.
- Zonda suffered a lot of hardships in the past that led her to become as ruthless as Thouzer, but the similarities between the two end there. Whereas Thouzer is a powerful martial artist who has discarded the concept of emotions (love especially) and wants to rule over a wasteland on his own terms in addition to having a misplaced heart, Zonda is a super-powered individual who wants to create a world where other Adepts in addition to herself can thrive at the cost of all other human life (mainly to put an end to the discrimination she and her kind suffered) and is a massive Love Freak. In addition to completely dismissing Zondas mindset about love, Thouzer was aware of the kind of threat Zonda and other super-powered individuals like her can pose to his potential empire, though Zonda isnt taking powerful enemies who oppose her, be it regular humans that are super-skilled in combat like Thouzer or those with superpowers of some kind, lightly and she definitely isnt going down without a fight if it means retaliating against Thouzers disparaging comments about love.
William Stryker, God of Unprovoked Hatred
(Reverend Stryker, Colonel Stryker
- Lesser God

- Alignment: Lawful Evil (thinks he's Lawful Good)
- Portfolio: Sinister Minister, Knight of Cerebus, Genocidally Racist Towards Mutants But Tolerant Of Human Groups, Knight Templar, Evil Virtues, Killed His Own Son For Being a Mutant "Monster" Despite Being a Monster Himself, Villainous Valour, Would Hurt a Child, Working Class Villain, Capable Reverend, Right-Wing Militia Fanatic, Black-and-White Insanity, Genuinely Believes Mutants Are Demons, Villain with Good Publicity
- Domains: Faith, The Military, Prejudice, Self-Righteousness, Evangelicalism

- Allies: Archibald Snatcher, The Imperium of Mankind (somewhat), Teyrn Loghain
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: YHVH, Alexander Anderson, Judge Claude Frollo, The Drowned
- Enemies: Every single mutant in and out of the Pantheon, and most who would support them, especially Kitty Pride, Magneto and Kurt Wagner, along with Turanga Leela and Philip J. Fry. For that matter every single demon and version of Lucifer/Satan in and out of the Pantheon no matter the alignment. He also detests Ragyo Kiryuin, Jake Sully, Griffith, The Godhand and Davros, along with any SMT Protagonist.
- Opposes: Red Skull
- Opposed by: Good-aligned members of the House of Religion and Faith like Father Kerras and Father Merrin
- William "Bill" Stryker was a sergeant in the army, and may have been involved in the Weapon X program. When his pregnant wife was exposed to radiation, the child was physically mutated. He believed it was a monster, stabbing the newborn. Snapping his wife's neck and attempted suicide after, he would reach rock-bottom as a drunk to his actions. When learning of Professor Xavier's news articles about mutants, he became convinced that God has saved him to save the world from mutants, which he believed were demons.
- In his fanatical belief, Stryker believes that mutants are actually Satan's plot to corrupt mankind, being literal demons from Hell. They did nothing wrong to him personally, he just happens to feel oppressed by their existence as many human antagonists of the X-Men. Admittedly mutant villains can feel the same about humans. He's a competent preacher and has made his temple a studio for televangelism, though given how varied members of the pantheon are it hasn't gotten as much traction.
- Because of his views on mutants, every single mutant despises him and in turn he despises every single mutant. This includes those outside Earth-616, like Turanga Leela. He likes the Imperium of Mankind's views on the "purity" of the human genome and the religious bent they have towards it, and is ready to serve them. That being said, he doesn't much care or agree for their more ruthless and callous actions towards their fellow men, or the Crapsack World that is the 41st millennium.
- Should be noted that he is a fantastic racist, not a contemporary example. He's tolerant towards human races, even respecting other religions despite being The Fundamentalist. He is just as repulsed by the Red Skull as most people are, only tolerating him because of his plan to commit genocide on the mutants. While their Sinister Minister profile permits him to work with Frollo, he does not agree with the perverted preacher's hatred towards gypsies.
- The religious bent he has means he despises any and all demons. While demons do seem to be Always Chaotic Evil in his universe and many others, the pantheon has plenty of morally neutral or good-aligned demons, yet he treats them as no less depraved. Even the ones from Nippon Ichi, who regard him as utterly evil. He has declared a personal war against all versions of Lucifer and Satan as well, though they aren't too concerned with the raving zealot.
- One would think that he would be lining up to worship YHVH, but not quite. He's not entirely down with The Evils of Free Will, though does admire His desire to make an egalitarian and orderly world. On the flip side, being Equal-Opportunity Evil the Great Will doesn't agree with him thinking mutants are demons, when they have just as much a right to worship Him forever and ever. They seem to agree to disagree.
- All for Alexander Anderson's slaying of monsters, wishing to team up with him. This was a contested relationship due to Anderson being more of an Anti-Hero, and lacking the Fantastic Racism Stryker had against mutants. He has made it clear that he considers him to be a disgrace against the faith, and only tolerates him to help slay monsters, vampires, werewolves and the such. The rest of the House of Religion and Faith either despises or otherwise doesn't care for him.
- Archibald Snatcher was very interested in Stryker and wanted his help to get rid of the trolls, and other "monsters". He agreed that mutants were demons, though unlike the Sinister Minister it was to increase social status by exploiting them. The two have agreed to work together...for now. As the god of Fantastic Racism, Teyrn Loghain understands him.
- Any human who sympathizes with the mutant plight, in his eyes, is a traitor to humanity. He was utterly disgusted to learn of Philip J Fry's deep and powerful love for the mutant Leela, especially upon learning he's literally gone to the end of the universe and beyond for her and helped the mutants be free from their conditions in the sewers. While it is hard for Fry to truly hate anyone, Stryker is a definite exception.
- Along with people like Fry, he considers Ragyo Kiryuin and Jake Sully traitors towards humanity due to siding with, as he sees, the enemy. Admittedly his views are totally justified with Ragyo. He hates Davros(again, justifiably) as the worst traitor of all; having his race replaced by psychotic mutants in the form of the Daleks, all to satisfy his delusions of godhood. Flipped his shit upon learning of Griffith and the Godhand due to willing transforming into actual demons, and all SMT protagonists due to siding with them.

- These thoroughly vile degenerates were high-ranking fascists in the Republic of Salò, a puppet state created by Nazi Germany when Italy was in dire straits in the later years of World War II. However, they did not care about the ongoing war; instead they took advantage of their power to fulfill a much more debauched goal. They started by marrying their downtrodden daughters off to each other, and then kidnapped about 18 teenaged boys and girls. The libertines absconded in a large estate with their captives, alongside a circle of accomplices consisting of three prostitutes to entertain them with stories, four guards and four "studs". The libertines made their captives into sex slaves, subjecting them to some of the most atrocious indignities imaginable, all for the sick erotic pleasure that they derive from watching an "inferior"'s suffering. In the end, they cruelly killed most of the captives for arbitrary reasons and faced no repercussion that could be seen, although one can take some comfort in the Fascists' eventual fall.
- Nobody precisely knows how they found their way into the Pantheon. One could be poetic and say that the hatred for these four and the sheer disgust at their actions is so powerful, that those two feelings singlehandedly propelled them into the eternity of the Pantheon. The fact remains that they are here to stay, as the Main House has given them Depraved Bisexual to rule over. Unsurprisingly, the deities that were outraged were not few and there was much wondering on how it is possible that these rapists-torturers-pedophiles-murderers could be considered acceptable as deities. Some cooler heads pointed out they were not exactly the first such villains in the Pantheon, although they may have the others beat in that they were actually very successful in their pursuits. At any rate, an instatement ceremony was skipped entirely for fear of the whole thing turning into a bloody riot.
- The libertines have no intention of abandoning their "hobbies" and are looking forward to the possibilities the Pantheon provides them with, but they are still aware enough to realize they are not as free to do as they would back in Salò. In fact, they hardly leave their temple (the palace estate where they conducted their ritual) because a LOT of deities would not hesitate to kill them on sight, thus they have left it to their guards and studs, who are rather less recognizable, to go outside and procure new slaves for them. Although if that yields no results, then the libertines are temporarily content with satisfying their sick urges with each other and the rest of their circle; Death Is Cheap, after all, and they're all such extreme sadomasochists that they don't hold it against each other.
- One can imagine that with the libertines' presence in the Pantheon, life has become ever so much worse for the younger deities, and that is entirely true, as concerned adult deities have started to enforce stricter rules to keep them safe from the fascists' abject cruelty (although this doesn't mean they all listen). Certain deities have gotten particularly bearish about protecting the House of Childhood and Adolescence from them and have agreed any of the fascists should just be eliminated the moment they are spotted within 2 km of the House. Granted, this comes with the caveat that any minor not belonging to that House is not as safe. Other deities started planting signs in the general area of the libertines' temple warning off anybody who approached, resulting in a minor war with the guards who always took down the signs or attempted to shoot those who planted them, until the matter was taken to the Court of Gods, who decreed the signs were entirely justified, and so the fascists were forced to conceed.
- Although they are some of the most loathed deities in the Pantheon, that does not make them entirely bereft of allies; remember the note about them not being the first deities with their... specifications? Well, the libertines certainly did their research and came upon a certain deranged knight, Gregor Clegane, whose obscene exploits were much admired by the libertines. The guards were sent to summon him to their temple, wherein the libertines offered that he join their circle and enjoy the "delights" they have to offer, in exchange for him fighting for them when needed. They even offered to let him smash one of their guards' head in, as token of what passes for goodwill around here. Gregor, a very sadistic rapist himself, did so, and it convinced him that he would really enjoy himself if he associated with the libertines (even if it's in-between his service to the Lannisters).
- They further obtained some more powerful allies in the equally depraved Wild Hunt, with Syura and Champ in particular feeling irresistably attracted to the libertines' activities. As enforcers for an evil empire, Wild Hunt have quite a history of abusing their position to commit unspeakable crimes against the empire's citizens, crimes which they take great pleasure in, and so they are glad to meet a likeminded group in the libertines and their circle. The libertines of course return their enthusiasm and the two groups often get together to share the stories of the depravities they've committed. That's when Wild Hunt isn't helping them fend off their enemies or kidnap new victims whom they can all abuse.
- The rebel group Night Raid already utterly despised these four; after all, they are vile, high-ranking members of a corrupt and authoritarian government which they take advantage of to indulge in their criminal hedonism; basically the types that Night Raid has enough of dealing with in their own world. Now that the libertines have gotten very friendly with their sworn enemies from Wild Hunt, Night Raid feel they have even more reason to undermine them at every step, by hopefully stopping their kidnapping operations and preventing any more suffering wrought by them. The libertines, being fascists, are used to hearing about rebel groups trying to overthrow the government, so nothing about Night Raid particularly fazes them. In fact they seem to have a lot of faith that Wild Hunt will eventually kill them all in the end and things will remain "as they ought to".
- And speaking of their historical context, the Pantheon has quite a few WWII veterans who served in Italy and definitely have a bone to pick with the quartet, not just for being unrepentantly aligned with the axis, but also for the sheer horror that their heretofore unheard-of crimes evoke. Their enemies thus include Karl Fairburne (who's personally killed some high-ranking Italian officers and wouldn't mind at all assassinating these four), Boyd Travers and Vito Scaletta. Conversely, the libertines have the help of several Nazi German units and officers, namely The Valkyrie Jäger, a Fallschirmjager unit that fought in Italy, who have occasionally been tasked with guarding high-ranking Axis officers, several members of the Waffen-SS who coincidentally also assisted them before their ascension, and Heinz Böhm, a Nazi Luftwaffe General put in charge of the Axis occupation and defense of a region of Southern Italy, and who's nearly as sadistic as they are. It's a bit doubtful whether they are on board with the full extent of the libertines' actions, but they haven't pronounced themselves on the matter one way or another.
- They have gotten blessings and patronage from certain divines who are pleased with their philosophy and actions, most notably the Chaos God Slaanesh, who's thrilled with the extents they will go to in order to fulfill their lusts. The same goes for Slaanesh's underling of sorts, Mara. While the libertines find the two to be worth worshipping, Mara is their pronounced favorite on account of its being a literal giant penis; there's nothing else that's more appropriate to worship, in the libertines' opinion.
- They can be said to embody many sins (lust is the most obvious, but they've shown just about every other one at some point); the infamous Seven Deadly Sins-obsessed killer John Doe has certainly noticed it and has accordingly put them on his hit list. If there were any human beings that proved, beyond any doubt, John Doe's incredibly cynical and misanthropic view of the human species, these four are definitely it. For that reason, John Doe would like to take his time in planning something really big for them. His murder schedule is packed as it is, too, so they might just be left for last. Needless to say, the libertines look at John Doe and his condemnation of sin with mingled contempt and pity; he is only one unremarkable guy, and besides, they wonder how he could possibly see life devoid of sin as being worth living.
- The Five Survivors absolutely hate the libertines, with good reason as they see the four and their circle as being something like a collective human version of their digital tormentor AM. The fact that there are humans whose love for cruelty towards their fellow man matches that of AM could almost drive the Survivors to despair. The libertines look at the Survivors' situation as very amusing, and would probably attempt to take part in it if AM weren't so murderously hateful towards humans in general. Actually, the libertines do wonder why AM wallows in hatred and self-loathing when he could be having the time of his life torturing his five prisoners for all eternity. They suppose it's a quirk of this newfangled technology others call a computer.
- Now that technology is mentioned, if there is one very advanced deity the libertines get along with, that would be Dr. Weil. While the cyborg is a peculiar sight to them, they soon discovered Weil has similar views to them, mainly in his belief in how there's nothing like lording over one's perceived inferiors, forcing them to do whatever you please and shooting down their hopes. In the name of creating a world where such is the rule, Weil seems to be quite comfortable allying himself with the libertines and looking the other way when it comes to their more perverse activities, which don't appeal to him. The libertines are pretty satisfied with this, especially as being allied with Weil gives them access to robotic warriors that might succeed in matters where Gregor or Wild hunt, with their human limitations, can't.
- They were more than happy to receive a film director who showed genuine interest in their activities and committing them to film; that was snuff film director Lionel Starkweather, who has made quite a name for himself filming various elaborate and gruesome murders. The libertines, having seen a few of them, thought that was all well and good, but found the lack of intercourse a pity. Well, that's what Lionel visited them for, and the libertines were more than happy to oblige, provided they get their a copy of the film for their own enjoyment, of course. Ever since then, the libertines have supported Lionel in other ways, mainly by funding more of his filmmaking efforts.
- Because they've been confirmed to be fascists, SCP-2578-D has also taken time to shoot at their temple from time to time. The SCP Foundation hopes that SCP-3922-As, which is associated with the Three Moons Initiative like 2578, don't get ascended, because things would get complicated and ugly real fast.
- "Idiot, did you really think we would kill you? Don't you see we want to kill you a thousand times, to the limits of eternity, if eternity could have limits?"
