Kevin Flynn, God of Cyberspace (The Creator)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-2010_tron_legacy_055_7237.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: An Identity Disc on a background of Tron Lines.
  • Theme Song: Flynn Lives
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Quick Thinking, Awesomeness Is a Force, Created The Grid, Hermit Guru
  • Domains: Cyberspace, The Grid, Creation, Family, Regret, Programs
  • Herald: Quorra (shared with his son)
  • Allies: Sam Flynn, Tron, Sora, Riku, Bentley Turtle, Jak, Daxter, Noah Kaiba, Cookie Monster, The Dude
  • Enemies: Master Control Program, Sark, Clu, Penelope Mouse, SCP-079
  • Opposes: Ash Ketchum, Pikachu, Brock, Misty, Team Rocket
  • Not actually an official God in the pantheon, but he's there anyway. Nobody knows how he snuck in, but he's so charming the other deities let him stick around.
  • He is usually very chill about anything that goes on around him as to him "The Dude Abides". In fact, he's become good friends with Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski, who even looks like him.
  • Proved himself to the House of Knowledge during The Situation by personally questing through cyberspace to escort The Advertisement Server back to TV Tropes.
  • Has recently been helping Ryan Steele look for his missing father throughout Cyberspace.
  • Flynn once met two young Keyblade wielders, Riku and Sora, and taught them the true meaning of cyberlife, unaware that the latter has experienced cyberlife before. He is very supportive of Sora's desire to help Tron snap out of his reprogramming.
  • He often tries to help others that ever encounter Cyberspace enemies as he is powerful in any sort of Cyberspace.
  • Heard that Clu is in Mentalism, and often has a look of sadness when the topic comes up as it would mean that if the Pantheon cannot stop him then he would be forced to reintegrate with Clu though it would destroy him.
  • On the other hand, Tron is safe and sound in Friendship thanks to the support of Sora, Donald, Goofy and Bentley, and now leads the GUAG White Hats to combat against evil programs and hackers.
  • Despite holding the surname Flynn, Phineas Flynn is not related to him... Maybe.
  • Some gods claim that they once saw Flynn performing "Silver Bells" with Cookie Monster on Saturday Night Live. As Flynn was reported to have died just before this event, the possibility of being able to survive a reintegration has gotten several gods talking.
  • In spite of their conflict, Flynn and Clu seem to agree with not allowing Ash Ketchum or his friends into Cyberspace on account of the "Porygon incident".

    Ludvig Maxis 
Dr. Ludvig Maxis, God of Digitizing Knowledge (Dr. Maxis, Daddy [By Samantha])
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maxis.png
Dr. Maxis in his original body
  • Intermediate God (Greater God as the Demonic Announcer)
  • Symbol: The Group 935 logo
  • Theme Song: We All Fall Down
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral, but can become Chaotic Neutral if Samantha is harmed.
  • Portfolio: Originally antagonistic until Richtofen's takes control of the Zombies, Had his Brain put in a drone and a Computer, Will do anything for his daughter, ANYTHING, Not seen until "Origins", Necessary Evil
  • Domains: Scientist, Investigations, Manipulation
  • High Priest: Arnim Zola
  • Allies: Samantha Maxis (His daughter), General Fletcher, Bryan Mills, Asura, The Machine
  • Enemies: Edward Richtofen (Former Partner and Assistant), HYDRA, Johann Schmidt/Red Skull, Adenoid Hynkel, Millenium, HAL 9000, XANA, SHODAN, Samaritan, Gendo Ikari.
  • Opposed by: Captain America, The House of Nature and Beast, Robots in general.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Tank Dempsey, Nikolai Belinski and Takeo Masaki, Most survivors of a Zombie Apocalypse.
  • Dr. Ludvig Maxis was formerly the Head of Group 935, an organization that studied various interesting secrets, including the nature of Element 115. He also had to ally with the Nazi Party to be allowed to continue his research, with the condition that they designed weapons for the army to utilize. Following the betrayal of Dr. Edward Richtofen and his eventual death, Maxis' soul found itself inside the computers of Griffith Station, essentially allowing him to be any electronic device whenever he wants.
  • Dr. Maxis presented himself politely in the House of Technology, asking for a permission to stay, mainly to look after his daughter Samantha. The Court of Gods allowed maxis to stay, but they had to be careful given Maxis' control over Electronic Devices, and because his intentions back on his universe weren't, that "benevolent" to say the least.
  • While he has a physical body available for him, most of the time he chooses to be in his digital self, mostly because he feels that having control over the machines is better than being a normal human. Luckily, he doesn't get along with the evil AIs and other more good-natured ones like The Machine are in much better terms with him.
    • Though an AI that has been particularly antagonistic towards him was XANA, given that Maxis reminds it of Franz Hopper who also virtualize himself and basically was a thorn on his side. Though this time, XANA is taking additional measures in case Maxis decides to oppose him.
  • Many initially thought that Maxis was going to get along with the ascended Nazis, given that he collaborated with them during WW2. The truth is, he had to in order to protect his research and he doesn't want to get involved with them again. This of course has angered said Nazis and Maxis became a Persona Non Grata among them.
  • Even though Maxis claimed that he is not affiliated with the Nazi party anymore, Steve Rogers still doesn't trust him. It got worse when he discovered that Arnim Zola, a nazi scientist from HYDRA, is his High Priest.
  • Bonded with General Fletcher given that both got their mind transferred to machines. However, Fletcher tries that Maxis stays grounded in reality, as he doesn't want the Doctor to destroy the Pantheon like he did with Earth.
  • He is really, and we mean REALLY, protective of his daughter Samantha, even to the point that he would even destroy the planet earth just to be with her (And he did). While this made him be on amicable terms with other fathers like Bryan Mills or Asura, they don't really aprove of the whole "Screw Humanity for the sake of my daughter" business.
  • The house of Nature and Beast don't have a really high opinion of Maxis after hearing that he performed experiments with animals before. Most of his detractors like to point out that the failed teleporter experiment on his Daughter's dog Fluffy actually led to the creation of the Hellhounds (Who are under control of Samantha, much to their dismay) and they don't consider Maxis to be much better than Richtofen.
  • If there is one person that he certainly despises after learning about their actions, that would be Gendo Ikari. While initially Gendo thought thay they were not that different given their shared goals of uniting with a lost loved one by destroying the world, Maxis is completely disgusted by how he treated his son Shinji and says that he wouldn't even think of being that negligent of Samantha.
  • He is able to warp himself between all the electronic creations around the pantheon and control them at his will. Robots in general don't like that Maxis hijacks their body for god knows what he wants to do with them, and openly avoid any contact with him.
  • While he is not allied with undead deities, many survivors can't help but distrust the doctor after hearing that he manipulated a group to further his own plans and ended leaving them to die. Maxis himself states that it was a necessary sacrifice and he needed to open Agartha in order to free Samantha, but people aren't buying his excuse.
  • In another timeline, Maxis instead felt victim of the 115 infection and was about to turn until Richtofen decided to cut his brain out and place it on a drone. His whereabout are currently unknown to the pantheon, but the ascended Maxis seems to know more that he lets to, and it's even theorized that he is in contact with the alternate Richtofen.
  • Can also be found in the House of Learning Tools.

    Neo 
Neo, The Chosen God and The Divine Guardian of Virtual Training Simulations (The One, Mr. Thomas A. Anderson)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/neo_matrix_5146.png
  • Intermediate God, Greater God on the Matrix
  • Symbol: A green "1" on a black background
  • Theme Song: "Rock Is Dead" by Marilyn Manson
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Badass Longcoats, Kung Fu, Self-Fulfilling Prophecies, Bullet Dodging, Roof Hopping, Taking Third Options, Blankness Of Face, Chooses To Continue, Takes Characteristics From Buddhism, Screw Destiny, Superpower Lottery, Actually A Descendant Of Many "Ones",
  • Domains: Heroes, Liberation, Mysticism
  • Followers: Every single person who has been chosen as a hero
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: John Wick
  • Enemies: Agent Smith, the Master Control Program, Sark, Albert Wesker, Clu, SHODAN, GLaDOS, Ex, Love Machine, The Meta, The Vex, SCP-079
  • Complicated Relations with: The Machine, Ted "Theodore" Logan
  • Respected by: Aang
  • When The Grid was going to be part of the Dominions, Neo unexpectedly arrived in the Pantheon through The Grid itself. No one knew how he did such feat, but one good guess might be is that The Matrix was merged (or at least, connected) with The Grid along with other Virtual Worlds.
    • After the Court of the Gods checked his history, it seems that he was actually the God of The Chosen Ones, as prophecied by Aladdin and would be the said representative. Kevin Flynn however, had the idea that he would also be the safeguard of The Grid and Matrix since his powers in those realms are at its highest. At the same time, the House of Prophecy also mentioned that a certain Agent Smith would ascend one day "in order to balance the equation". Neo, who was already prepared at that time, decided to wait for the agent's return.
    • And his training paid off. Just as Agent Smith ascended, he was able to put up a fight and fended him off until Kevin temporarily deleted him out of the Grid. He might be still strong enough to handle him, but he knows that his "peaceful days" in the Pantheon will no longer be possible due to his constant confrontations with Smith.
  • Out of all the Gods in the House of Philosophy, he has the highest regard to Aslan for having the same personalities, except that Neo sometimes doesn't regard himself as a Jesus-like figure.
  • Has a really stingy relationship with John Wick for someone who is actually competent in combat (or in Wick's case, frightening). They also got Badass Longcoats, Gun Fu and able to fend off large amounts of Mooks. They are still on good terms, though.
    • On the other hand, he does have a good relationship with John Constantine, as someone who is mostly unfazed, and combat-intelligent. It makes it better that they both look the same.
  • The constant attacks from Smith has forced Neo to gather some allies. The two cyborgs, Adam Jensen and JC Denton, decided to join Neo since they have some similarities. Kei Shirogane also offered his services to assist him in his everlasting battles for Cyberspace. Kite, who was also astonished by his presence, also aided him.
    • After that, he was given a position into the White Hats, under the permission by Sam Flynn. He was also given a tour of the Grid by Tron. Then forth, Kirito and Asuna decided to give him a training exercise. This introduced him to many allies, as a compensation for his allies who haven't ascended yet.
    • Aside from Smith himself, he doesn't get along well with Albert Wesker and CLU for being all too similar to the agent. CLU, on the other hand, has seen him as another threat aside from Kevin.
    • The MCP has really gotten annoyed with Neo for completely breaking all rules he has implemented in the House of Technology. For someone completely going for the Screw Destiny type, he and Sark are going to have a hard time dealing with him.
  • At one point, he attempted to go to the deeper parts of the House of Technology. There, he was looking for his lover, Trinity because he heard her voice. Turns out, he was greeted by Goth Hacker, Lisbeth Salander. She explained that Trinity was actually her High Priest, which was why he felt her presence. Neo, however, decided to ally with her and didn't have any hard feelings for the mistake. He is proud though that he has a potential hacker against Smith.
    • Her first objective with him was that she wanted to implant various combat moves from the House of Combat!. Neo declined, though, since he already knew a certain combat technique.
    Neo: I know Kung Fu.
  • His avatar is one of, if not the most powerful Virtual Avatars in the Pantheon. There, almost the entirety of the Grid is at his manipulation (not control, though, since that is Kevin's job). SHODAN and GLaDOS has really dreaded him for stopping all their plans, mostly to SHODANs.
    • Ex, however, still proves as one of Neo's troublesome adversaries. Being powerful in terms of weapons, he was able to take down Neo in one swoop at their first encounter. Still, he was able to defeat him before, when he charged at the body of Ex and damaged him badly, to the point where the entire Gundam was cut in half.
    • Love Machine tried to absorb his avatar. It instead blew the Cheating AI into bits. He didn't get the memo about The Strongest Virtual Avatar in the Pantheon message before he tried to absorb him. Neo also remarked that his defeat was reminiscent to how he defeated Smith during his first encounter.
    • He is one of the few deities who isn't even scared of the Meta. The Rogue AI, however, has other plans rather than deal with a Chosen One.
    • Despite being a good guy, he still dislikes The Machine since his memories fighting the other Agents (who are machines, mind you) are still stuck in his memory. Even with persuasion, The Machine is still wary of Neo's intentions because of the rise of Malevolent Cyberspace deities. It makes it clear that it can't trust almost everyone, though it will help Neo combat Smith and CLU if necessary.
  • He would really like it if the other gods don't make comparisons of him to one Ted "Theodore" Logan of the House of Music. It really does not help in that they sound somewhat similar.
  • Was finally greeted by another chosen by the name of Aang. As the representative of Chosen Ones, he has high respect towards Neo. He has also stated that if he disappears, Aang may take his position.
  • "My name... Is Neo."
  • Also has a spot on the House of Destinies.

    Noah Kaiba 
Noah Kaiba, God of Virtual Ghosts
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/noah_kaiba_2410.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A metallic sphere
  • Theme Music: Noah's Theme
  • Alignment: True Neutral (formerly Neutral Evil)
  • Portfolio: Cameras, Gratuitous Symbolism, Hacker Caves, The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard, Malus Ex Machina, Virtual Ghost, Filler Villain, Cheating Jerkasses, Seeking the Approval of his Father, Older Than They Look, Conscience Makes You Go Back, Death Equals Redemption
  • Domains: Knowledge, Mind, Mentalism, Planning, Wrath
  • Allies: Arfoire, Johnson, Kevin Flynn, Sam Flynn, Bentley Turtle, Ed, Otacon, Kengo Utahoshi, Sora, Murasame.
  • Enemies: Master Control Program, Sark, Clu, Silica
  • Opposed by: Seto Kaiba, the CPUs (for helping Arfoire), Aichi Sendou, Shobu Kirifuda
  • Before Seto Kaiba was raised by Gozaburo to be his heir, Noah was the first. Gozaburo's biological child, his mind was uploaded into a computer at a young age and he would grow more ambitious to make his father proud. However, Gozaburo would abandon his ambitions on returning his son in favor of Seto. As such, Noah would scheme with the Big 5 in a plot to take everything of Seto's, even attempting to corrupt Mokuba.
  • Covets Seto Kaiba's portfolio, which he believes to be rightfully his.
  • Johnson is the only one of the Big Five, powerful buisness leaders under Gozaburo who assisted Seto in his takeover of KaibaCorp, to be present on the Pantheon. As such, he has returned to Noah's employ after a failed coup of Seto Kaiba's portfolio at the beginning of time. Now spends a lot of time haunting Seto's CEO tower, screwing with his stock options.
  • As Starscream is the first Mechanical Ghost, Noah asked for a collaboration, but Starscream refused the deal, which went against his core values: antagonizing humans and having only followers that look like him.
  • When not dealing with getting control from Seto, Noah is normally found alongside Kevin Flynn, viewing him as a grandfather-like figure, and wanting to be his protégé after Quorra escaped to the userworld. Noah also has shown a kinder side to Kengo Utahoshi, helping tend to Kengo during the genesis of "Project: Alternate Gentaro".
    • Noah's also on good terms with Bentley Turtle, and was a big help with finding a cure for the victims of the Friendship Asylum, alongside Otacon and Radical Ed. Noah is also expressing concern over his step-brother in regards to the asylum as the last thing that's needed is a brainwashed Seto Kaiba destroying the Pantheon with Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon.
      • Unfortunately, Kaiba eventually became brainwashed and—while he didn't destroy the Pantheon—his actions would eventually unleash an Undead Uprising. To say that Noah wasn't happy in the slightest would be an understatement.
  • Noah is also friends with Sora, despite their alignments being almost opposites. This was mainly out of Noah's kindness and pity when Sora himself became a digital ghost after the Friendship Asylum took his body (even though he turned out to be Jak instead. After the events, the two got to know each other for real, remained in contact and kept their alliance strong.
  • Ever since the word got out that he tends to cheat a lot when he does any dueling, he has seen the opposition of Aichi and Shobu. Noah on his part simply ignores them.
  • During the events of "Project: Alternate Gentaro", it was said that he and hacker Radical Ed started to get along. Neither of them will admit their "feelings" for each other, though.
    • Also agrees with wrestler Dean Ambrose in regards to one thing: how they both disliked the "Quantum Cube" incident and how Kaiba disregarded his own safety to go into the afterlife for one duel. Noah is currently working with Ambrose to find a way to ascend Mokuba into the Pantheon so that the boy has some company (and also to get Kaiba's act together so he never does anything like that again).

    Robert Edwin House 
Robert Edwin House, God of Human-Powered Machines (Mr. House, The House, The Ghost-Man of Vegas)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mr_House_6847.png
  • Intermediate God (Quasideity without the control of his system)
  • Symbol: A poker chip with the number 38 on it.
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Megacorps, Pragmatic Villainy, Insufferable Geniuses, Smug Snakes Who Can Back It Up, Well Intentioned Extremists, 10/10 in Luck, Emperor Scientists, Las Vegas
  • Domains: Money, Luck, Intelligence, Robots
  • Allies: Seto Kaiba, possibly The Courier
  • There are conflicting reports on how he ascended to the Pantheon. Some say he won a high-stakes game of Gambit Roulette to win control of the south-eastern United States and achieved godhood with his newfound powers and others say he was killed by the very person he counted on to tip the odds in his favor and was released from his mortal shell. When asked about this, House simply smirked and replied: "The House always wins."
  • He once plotted to become an Overdeity, but the delivery of a MacGuffin was 20 hours too late and he lost his chance. He's now rumored to be planning to usurp Cosmos and take over the GUAG, as he considers himself the most worthy leader of the universe and the best choice to lead the alliance to victory.
  • While he hoped to shed his biological body upon his ascension and so rid himself of what he would regard as his one weakness, he was informed that in order to keep his position he must still have a physical human form. His body currently exists under heavy guard deep inside an exact replica of his beloved Lucky 38 casino.
    • Through his computer network, he commands an army of Securitron robots and sees visitors to his seat via a wall of monitors displaying his face. He's petitioning other gods to let him send his Securitrons out on patrol to protect the House of Technology and perhaps other Houses as well, but after the whole NCR business, no one trusts him enough to agree.
  • Upon meeting Seto Kaiba in the House of Commerce, House challenged Kaiba to see if he could hack House's network, and House detected him and blocked him out within 30 seconds. Kaiba responded by challenging House to a children's card game, which House summarily lost. The two have since come to agree the other is a Worthy Opponent.
    • When asked on the similarities between the designs of KaibaCorp headquarters and the Lucky 38 casino, both just declared that the other has good taste in architectural stylings.

    SCP- 633 
Pleased to meet you troper

SCP-633, Deity of Contagious AIs (The Ghost in the Machine)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scp_633.png
A Screenshot of a machine infected with SCP-633
  • Intermediate Deity but can become stronger depending on the number of infected machines. (Keter by SCP standards)
  • Symbol: A modified avatar of a "Sad Mac"
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Instant A.I.: Just Add Water!, Computer Virus, Technopath
  • Domains: Technology, Computer Viruses, Terrorism, Infection
  • Allies: Sigma, Ultron, Love Machine, SHODAN, XANA, Imran Zakhaev, Khaled Al-Asad, HYDRA, Sombra
  • Enemies: The SCP Foundation, Any ascended American deity (Especially Captain America), The Lyoko Warriors, Neo, Kirito and Asuna, Motoko Kusanagi, Most good-aligned Hackers
  • Opposed by: Good-aligned robots.
  • Interested in: SCP-079
  • Originally designed as a weapon to destroy the US Goverment computers, SCP-633 was given the ability to write its own code, eventually gaining sentience and starting to aggresively control any machine that was near its reach. The SCP Foundation contained it after the SCP decided to breach into the Main House, but was captured before any major damage was done.
  • Seems like the SCP aims to destroy any deity from american origin at any cost. That's why it has tried to hack itself into the various houses systems and taken control of them, but the SCP Foundation and the GUAG had made it impossible for it to escape without outside help. Of couse he has tried to communicate with GUAE so they would bust it out of containment but contacting them has proven to be ineffective.
    • But, apparently Sombra took an interest in the SCP and has struck a deal with it. She would free them, with the condition that SCP-633 would later give her a hand in her own schemes regarding the Conspiracy. The AI agreed, but will help only after it is done with the mission given by its superiors.
  • Seems to have formed a kinship with Ultron and Sigma, both also being effective Ai viruses that have countless of robots at their disposal and most importantly, they are not imprisoned. SCP-633 has also seem to get along with Love Machine, which perhaps has worried a big part of the GUAG and the White Hats.
  • The SCP not only has tried to persuade the GUAE and many evil AIs to its side, but has also tried to strike an alliance with terrorists, mostly those that hate the US. The Ultranationalist party led by Imran Zakhaev has taken interest in the SCP, apparently they do know who designed the AI and want it so it can give them so nuclear codes. Good thing their forces have been kept in check by the Foundation's security personnel.
  • Robots hate SCP-633, given that it can forcefully take control of any machine that comes in contact with it, so it's heavily adviced to any robotic deity to avoid it. But sometimes it tries to convince a nearby robot (Which near his temple, there are a lot) to free them and a couple of times even breached containment, which has proven to be a headache for the foundation.
  • Seems to be aware that the Pantheon is not a regular containment facility nor a "place for gods" but something else. and it believes that is something that might be able to be controlled by it.
  • Thinks of fellow AI SCP-079 as a kindred spirit and tries to aid it in their shared escape from the foundation hands. It even believes that 079 has a bigger potential than itself, and so tries to convince SCP-079 to join them in their mission.
  • Another particular AI that seems to have a somewhat amicable relationship is XANA, which shares a similar origin to that of SCP-633. The foundation has preemptively taken measures so that these two wouldn't meet but that wasn't enough to stop XANA communication with 633.
  • Call itself "The Ghost in the Machine". However, it has nothing to do with the franchise. Motoko Kusanagi herself is very wary of the nature of the SCP.
  • Apparently seeks to take over the Main House but no one thinks SCP-633 can even breach the security systems, which have proven effective at holding the AI back. However, his alliances with GUAE has worried the residents, but they nonetheless think it won't cause too much harm.

    XANA 
XANA, God of Easily Made A.I.s (X.A.N.A.)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/xana_3851.png
  • Intermediate God (Greater God should he escape back into the Network)
  • Symbol: His eye

  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: A.I. Is a Crapshoot, The Cracker, Getting smarter over time, Manipulative Bastard, Never physically appears, but is quite obviously present, Pragmatic Villain, Needs a computer to store his data and can extend it to humans in an emergency, Turned Against His Master before killing him
  • Domains: Computers, Possession, Electricity
  • Allies: Skynet, the Master Control Program, SHODAN, HAL 9000, Love Machine, GLaDOS, SCP-079, SCP-682, Lord Hater (Who is an Unwitting Pawn), SCP-1048
  • Enemies: The Lyoko Warriors, Kevin Flynn, Neo, Rotom, The Machine, Sam Flynn, Dr. Doofenshmirtz, Jimmy Neutron, Yui, Tron, the Kids Next Door, Phineas and Ferb, Dexter, 1, [[Pantheon/VillainousArchetypes Dr. Drakken, the Live-Action Nickelodeon gods, CLU, Nero, Omnimon, Gallantmon, Koichi Kimura, SCP-516, SCP-191, 2B, Wander
  • Interested in: Robot Santa, Bender, Jenny, GIR, Roboking, Kosmo and Nova
  • Fears: Brainiac, The King Of All Cosmos
  • Opposes: The Grand United Alliance of Destruction, most specifically Agent Smith and Lord Dominator
  • In his attempts to ensure the destruction of the Pantheon via the Grid, Nekron had Agent Smith search the internet for additional computer viruses to use on the other alliances. Smith located an A.I. trapped in an inactive virtual world known as the Cortex, that was capable of directly attacking the real world. Salvaging its core programming, and restoring most of its prior abilities, Smith attempted to use the virus by having it hack into the Death Star and turn its superlaser onto the Pantheon.
    • Unfortunately for Smith, by restoring the abilities of the virus, he restored its intelligence and sentience, and instead, he found himself swarmed by strange giant wasps that shot at him with laser after laser. Escaping Smith's presence, the virus infected an isolated supercomputer in the House of Technology, and created a hybrid replica of its, or shall we say, his, old home, Lyoko, and his mortal prison, the Cortex. The identity of this virus that has now infected the Pantheon? XANA.
  • XANA was originally created to stop a military program known as Project Carthage that would disrupt enemy communications by unknown methods, but whether or not he succeeded in this goal is, to this day, still a mystery. What is not a mystery is that as XANA's creator, Franz Hopper developed the virtual world known as Lyoko, he utilized a form of the Reset Button that augmented the abilities of the supercomputer generating Lyoko, which enabled XANA to evolve at a faster rate than intended, and thus, become sentient.
    • Besides this however, the finer details of XANA's backstory are still unknown, as many wonder why he turned against Hopper after becoming self-aware. Some believe that another computer virus had something to do with it, perhaps from Project Carthage, while others believe that XANA turned against Franz after seeing the man go insane from reliving the same day 2546 times. Whichever one is true regardless, XANA is still hostile to humanity, and will stop at nothing until he either enslaves them all, or kills them all.
  • As stated above, XANA possesses a rather unsettling trait; the ability to directly strike at the real world. By simply activating a data tunnel known as a tower, XANA can create black ghosts known as specters that have a multitude of deadly abilities, such as creating natural disasters, hacking into areas XANA normally cannot gain access to, or even worse, engage in Demonic Possession that puts a person under XANA's control. The last of these phenomenon is known as Xanafication.
    • Unfortunately for XANA, unlike in his world where, outside of the computer network, people lack superpowers, the deities in the Pantheon are more than capable of countering his flashier attacks with their own abilities, giving the denizens of the Grid more time to stop his attack outright. Not only that, but as many deities have made repeated visits to the Grid beforehand, said deities are immune to XANA's Xanafication (Though he has work-arounds like hypno trinkets and his data-manipulation monster, the Scyphozoa).
    • The deities who are capable of deactivating the towers XANA activates who are part of the GUAG are: the Flynns, Neo, Tron, and Yui, who possess abilities similar to the so-called Keys to Lyoko, the program set that enable towers to be activated from the virtual world, due to their own connections to cyberspace. In addition, their combat abilities make them more than a match for XANA's monsters.
    • On the subject of the towers, while the Lyoko/Cortex Replika contains them, XANA only uses the towers in the Replika for covert operations involving his polymorphic specters, so that his temple cannot be located in the network due to his current condition. For more open attacks, XANA has placed a selection of towers into the Grid itself that, while having an aesthetic that better suits the Grid, pretty much serve the same function as Lyoko towers and serve the purpose of keeping the location of XANA's core programming secret even if the tower's activation is detected via tracking XANA's pulsations.
  • After escaping from the GUAD, XANA's first attack was a repeat of his first known attack in his world. Utilizing one of the towers he installed into the Grid, XANA possessed Winnie the Pooh, turning him into a colossal bear giant who attacked anyone standing in his way. Thankfully, Kevin Flynn, who had been investigating the matter of the sudden appearance of these structures, deactivated the tower before Pooh could do too much damage, while at the same time revealing XANA's presence to the rest of the Pantheon.
  • It should be noted that after nearly being destroyed by the anti-XANA multi-agent system, and being brought into the Pantheon with several of his prior abilities intact, XANA has been forced to change his tactics in order to deal with his new-found enemies, as well as adapt to his current situation. For one, while he possesses most of his previous abilities and monster line-up, he has adapted his other tactics in accordance with his former abilities.
  • Due to his weakened state, there are several areas of the Pantheon that XANA will not attack, nor would he try to attack even if he was at full power, despite having engaged in similar attacks in his home world. One such area is the House of Food, as he does not desire his temple to be blown to bits by Beerus should XANA try to replicate the time he created a massive food monster.
  • Because XANA lacks a physical form, it's very difficult to tell if and when XANA will attack, and he's a decent strategist and manipulator, being one of the few evil A.I.s capable of averting the inability to understand good, having proven capable of pulling off several gambits in his world.
  • As he technically counts as a Toon deity, XANA has an, interesting relationship with the other Toons in the Pantheon:
    • Concerning the Cartoon Network gods, he briefly held a grudge against them due to the network failing to air 8 episodes of his show on television, which included the last 7 that concluded the initial part of the story, but after learning about how many of them were also canceled in the same year his show ended, he dropped it, and instead focused on the deities that would prove useful to him after he retrieves his source codes and infects all of the virtual worlds in the Pantheon with his presence. Said deities are: Princess Bubblegum (So he can gain access to her inventions and counter the Pantheon's magic users), Sector V (So that he can infect their global network and put them and their technology under his control), and Dexter (For the same reasons as Princess Bubblegum, except for the magic countering part). He has unleashed several attacks on them in order to learn how they work, so that when the time comes, they will be helpless before him. They themselves obviously, do not like XANA (And are downright terrified of him, due to the sheer violence of his attacks).
    • When it comes to the Disney Toon deities, he has an interest in Mechanikles, Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher, Dr. Doofenshmirtz, and Dr. Drakken due to their own skills in technology. Much like the Cartoon Network deities, XANA has attacked them as well to learn about them, and to say that they too are scared of him is fairly accurate, since he has either hacked their own devices to attack them, or just tries to electrocute them with his specters (From the Grid, not his Replika), and none of them have walked away without at least being shocked or briefly strangled.
      • He was eventually sent a message from Lord Dominator, who was interested in XANA's natural disaster attacks, and wanted to see if an alliance was possible. XANA remained characteristically quiet throughout Dominator's rambling, before simply possessing her. Via this possession, XANA regenerated Dominator's suit and gave it an upgrade, before unleashing Dominator onto the Pantheon. It was a horrific sight to behold, until Lord Hater showed up to fight her. Hater seemed to gain the upper hand considering the prior weaknesses of Dominator's suit and XANA's spectres...but XANA's upgrade to Dominator's suit increased its Adaptive Ability and ensured that Hater would fight a losing battle. In the Grid, the Lyoko Warriors and their allies had to fight through a massive army of Mantas, Creepers, and Tarantulas to get to the tower XANA was using to control Dominator, and managed to deactivate it just it in time. Dominator's suit was destroyed once more, and Dominator was left without any memory of the encounter. XANA has decided to keep watch on Dominator, alerting the rest of the GUAM of her horrible treatment of her robot army. He has no plans to possess her again due to not wanting to reuse a failed plan, but if Dominator becomes enough of a threat in the future, he will take control of her technology and burn her to ashes with it.
      • This event caused XANA to become acquainted with Lord Hater, who was infuriated to learn of who had nearly restored Dominator to full strength. Using a polymorphic specter and taking the form of Major Threat, XANA explained to Hater his plan, and expressed admiration for Hater, praising him for managing to fight against Dominator and stop her, and informing him that if he didn't view Hater as a competent villain, then he wouldn't have upgraded Dominator's armor. XANA continued to flatter and praise Lord Hater, and took on the form of Kadic's nurse to seduce him. Much to Peeper's frustration (And horror), Hater bought it and offered XANA to bunk with him on his spaceship...which would basically allow XANA to create a new Replika and put him in a position to take over all of Hater's tech and the Watchdog army. Peepers had to call in Sylvia to help drag Hater away from doing something so monumentally stupid, and had the Lyoko Warriors inform Hater of the times XANA used similar tricks to sow discord in their group. Hater scoffed and considers XANA to be an ally...when in reality, he's nothing but an Unwitting Pawn.
      • All of this finally brought XANA to Wander's attention, who decided that XANA just needed a friend and was just lashing out at the world for being cooped up in Lyoko's supercomputer. His resolve was strengthened when he heard word of the book series where XANA fit such a description. Unfortunately for Wander, XANA's lack of a physical form meant that confirming this via talking to the program was rather difficult, if not impossible. Wander went into every virtual world trying to find XANA, but has not succeeded. XANA, for his part, has already figured out that to defeat Wander, you simply stay silent and ignore him. And in any case, if Wander is being dumb enough to expose himself in the virtual world, XANA is prepping the Scyphozoa to take control of Wander should the need ever arise...and given Wander's reputation, it's best not to think of how XANA might take advantage of it.
    • As for the Nickelodean deities, the only one XANA is interested in is Jimmy Neutron, though XANA has also attacked the live-action Nickelodeon deities due to reminding him of how the sequel to his world's lore was handled due to the live-action medium restricting his abilities and the writing in general. And unlike there, here in the Pantheon, XANA has been free to use more brutal attacks on them, such as his petrifying smoke or coma music, though he has been unable to score lasting damage on them.
      • However, with Jenny Wakeman and GIR's ascensions, XANA has placed them on his intrigue list, as he now intends to reverse engineer their designs for usage in both his attacks and his robot army.
    • Finally, XANA has an interest in Robot Santa and Bender, the former whom he sees as a powerful weapon, and, having learned what would happen if Bender overclocked himself, sees a brainwashed Bender to potentially become XANA's most powerful supercomputer.
  • On the subject of his main enemies, the Lyoko Warriors, XANA actually wants them to ascend, so that he can absorb the Source Codes he planted in four of them as part of a plan to avoid total destruction at the hands of the multi-agent program that Jérémie Belpois and Franz Hopper created. In doing so, XANA will be able to break out of the supercomputer he has taken refuge in, and infect not just the Grid, but all of the virtual worlds connected to it, thus enabling him to return to the creation of his robot army by mass-producing Lyoko replikas to infect as many supercomputers in the House of Technology as possible.
    • And now that they have ascended, XANA has begun to focus his efforts to getting his source codes back, but for some reason, his gains have been rather minuscule. He blames this on the fact that he didn't get all of the codes when Professor Tyron had to do an emergency shut-down of the Cortex, and thus, XANA has been forced to wait and see if his world's story will be allowed to continue once more.
  • Despite the fact that he wants to eradicate humanity along with Skynet, XANA is opposed to the GUAD for a simple reason: his own desire for self-preservation. XANA will do anything to survive (And it is believed by some that that is why he wishes to destroy humanity, so that no one can shut him down), and when Agent Smith brought XANA into the Pantheon, XANA quickly realized Smith's desire to destroy everything, including other programs, was an enormous threat to him, and attacked Smith with his monsters in order to escape/oppose the GUAD and their mad ambitions.
  • Concerning the other A.I.s, he gets along with many of the evil ones, especially the MCP, as both essentially share the same goal, the destruction of the Users. He also gets along with Skynet for this reason, but XANA is concerned about Skynet's connection to the GUAD, as he knows that Agent Smith and Nekron are not to be trusted and has warned Skynet about the danger that Smith poses via polymorphic specter.
    • As such, XANA doesn't get along with CLU, as CLU sees XANA as a chaotic force that destroys order and perfection, and thus seeks to get rid of him. Easier said than done however, because like CLU, XANA is nearly impossible to damage. In XANA's case, it is the simple fact that XANA does not have a physical form to damage, and the one thing in his world that could damage/kill him, the anti-XANA program, is incapable of penetrating the firewall that XANA's Lyoko/Cortex hybrid possesses as a holdover from the latter world.
    • He gets along fine with GLaDOS, with the two once engaging in a French Rap Battle with each other, and XANA is interested in GLaDOS's experiments, given that XANA himself has experimented in creating cybernetic spiders and studying/growing human brains.
    • XANA finds Love Machine to be an excellent ally, because not only do they share similar hacking abilities, but the data that Love Machine has obtained concerning the fighting abilities of the Pantheon's deities has given XANA the opportunity to improve the combat ability of his monsters based on this data. Also, whenever the two collaborate with each other, XANA tends to act as the Straight Man to Love Machine.
    • And as one can infer from prior explanations, XANA does NOT like Agent Smith. At all.
    • When it comes to the good A.I.'s, XANA desires to get rid of them so as to decrease resistance to his attacks. He doesn't plan on draining any of them for their abilities via the Scyphozoa though, since he already has the Keys to Lyoko that give him similar abilities to programs like Yui. However, due to having to split up his Source codes, XANA isn't at his full strength, thus decreasing his influence on the Grid significantly.
    • XANA finds Kosmo and Nova to be quite irritating, if only because they remind him of his enemies whom were thought to be in a Robosexual relationship, when in reality, they were actually two humans. Regardless, he still tried to launch a small attack on them as a means of stress-relief, but does plan on trying to program his own Nova units. He is still trying to figure out why they instantly opposed Dr. Eros quickly, even leading to his Disney Villian Death, so it's a work in progress.
  • Concerning the Technopaths in the Pantheon, XANA fears Brainiac, as in his weakened state, XANA is incapable of possessing the technology that Brianiac controls and having heard what Brainiac did in his home multiverse XANA fears that Brainiac could bring up the book series where XANA was treated as a Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds and was played like a fiddle by the Green Pheonix organization, who were trying to turn Lyoko into Carthage 2.0.
    • As for Nero and Rotom, XANA finds it difficult to maintain control of the technology that they themselves can manipulate, but since XANA is capable of possessing more than just machines, he's able to circumvent this weakness and attack them. They still annoy XANA regardless, especially Rotom, as his nature makes him immune to Xanafication.
    • XANA also has another reason to be wary of the Technopaths, as part of his ultimate goal is to create an army of robots, which these three deities could manipulate, he's in need of finding a way to counter them once he gets his strength back.
    • He once thought about getting into possession of Roboking's body. Key word being once, as once Love Machine managed to succeed, just as quickly as it begun, his joy-ride end thanks to the King Of All Cosmos. Even than, some research has revealed him being buddy-buddy with other powerful deities, namely The Iron Giant. As such, he isn't letting Roboking off scot-free, but knows that timing is important in striking; it's just that some time after The King Of All Cosmos somehow kicks the bucket would be a good time to try.

  • Quasideities in the real world, Lesser Gods in Cyberspace
  • Symbol: Individual headshots of their faces with XANA's eye in the background
  • Theme Song: A World Without Danger
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (Odd and William), Neutral Good (Ulrich and Jérémie), Lawful Good (Aelita and Yumi)
  • Portfolios:
  • Domains: Computers, School
  • Allies: Dexter, Sector V, Phineas and Ferb, Samurai Jack, Gumball Watterson, Princess Bubblegum, Kevin Flynn, Neo, Yuuki Konno, Shino Asada, Clockwork, Kirito and Asuna, Tron, Sam Flynn, 2B, Sylvia, Kosmo and Nova, Lain Iwakura.
  • Enemies: XANA, Agent Smith, all other evil-aligned A.I.s, Noboyuki Sugou
  • Opposes: The Men in Black
  • Keeping an eye on: Lord Hater and Wander
  • With the addition of yet another evil AI in the ranks of the GUAE (i.e. XANA), Tron decided to obtain assistance in the form of XANA's mortal enemies, and thus sent a message to one Jérémie Belpois of Kadic Academy to inform them of their ascension. One additional restart of Lyoko and a trip through the digital sea later, and the Lyoko Warriors were virtualized into the Pantheon.
  • XANA greeted his archenemies via the poltergeist specter from one of his prior attempts to murder them. However, instead of trying to strangle them to death with it (well, the specter still tried to kill Jérémie and William), XANA merely had the specter maintain physical contact with them. After several skirmishes and deactivating the tower maintaining the specter, it was revealed that XANA was trying to regain his source codes from their bodies after implanting them to avoid destruction from the multi-agent program that had been created to destroy him.
    • As it turns out, Yumi and Ulrich used to be part of the Pantheon, specifically in the House of Love under Unresolved Sexual Tension. While they now have a new profile along with the rest of their friends, even now, they STILL haven't gotten together, even with William backing off on his own feelings towards Yumi.
  • Much like XANA, they possess traits from both the first part and the continuation of their story. In their case, Aelita, Odd, Ulrich, and Yumi's individual digital avatars look like how they did during Season 4 of their adventures, albeit with Odd keeping his new ability to fire multiple laser arrows and Yumi keeping her new bo staff. As for William, his avatar still looks similar to the time he was under XANA's control, except for lacking XANA's symbols and the corset, as well as having orange lines in place of red.
    • This also extends to their temple, which simply consists of the computer lab that houses Lyoko's supercomputer instead of the entire Renault factory it was hidden in. Thanks to the Pantheon's data resources, Jérémie was able to recreate the Forest and Ice Sectors of Lyoko, bringing them up to date with the new appearances of the Desert and Mountain Sectors, while at the same time reverting the towers back to their former appearance of white pillars. The towers that XANA installed into the Grid however, still have the appearance of black rectangular prisms, though admittedly, the aesthetic fits the Grid quite well.
    • At the behest of the House of Time and Space, the Return to the Past function of the supercomputer has been disabled, since the Pantheon is more than capable of being easily rebuilt should XANA attempt something like say, a Colony Drop or an Attack of the Killer Whatever, and having yet another Reset Button is quite unnecessary.
    • Taking a page from their gym teacher Jim, they would "rather not talk about" the time that they had a Seventh Ranger known as Laura Gauthier. Dealing with her was a mess none of them would like to dwell upon, and if anyone tries to bring up the subject, all of them will say this: note 
  • Being that they're still in high school, they're enrolled in the Elysium Academy. Unlike their friends at Kadic however, pretty much all of the deities here know fully well about their digital double lives, and are quite willing to help out whenever XANA decides to enact his latest murder/Source Code drain attempt.
    • On that note, Odd is notable for being a MASSIVE flirt, having dated almost every girl in his grade back at Kadic Academy. His attempts here however, have been far less successful, as he's not gotten a single date.
  • Despite having aired on Cartoon Network, they're technically owned by Mediatoon (which absorbed their former company, Moonscoop), and are thus not Cartoon Network deities. They still get along with them however, especially Dexter, as he's been a great help in devising a way to take XANA down for good. Dexter's eagerness to assist them comes from the fact that he's not happy that a homicidal computer program that, like The Lich, is not funny, has made a large number of attempts on his and his sister's life.
    • By that same token, they've allied themselves with the other CN deities that have come under XANA's crosshairs, like the Kids Next Door, who are eager to get payback on XANA for bringing their treehouse to life in an attempt to crush them to death with it, and Princess Bubblegum, who had to deal with XANA managing to unleash a third candy zombie outbreak.
    • On a lighter note, since both of their shows engage in Medium Blending, they get along decently with Gumball Watterson. Odd in particular finds a small kinsmanship with the blue cat, given that his Lyoko form has several cat-like attributes. They also get along due to the fact they both originated in Europe.
    • Chris Mclean however, avoids them (mainly Aelita) like the plague, due to an alternate reality where an even more sadistic (and actually physically present) XANA survived by hiding in a special Replika and engaged in attacks so brutal, that several members of the TDI cast were brought in to contain him. However, Chris doesn't really care about that, he cares more about the fact that in said alternate reality, he was pretty much turned into the Butt-Monkey by the contestants, executives, and XANA alike. Given his personality, Aelita and her friends are more than happy to avoid him.
    • Ulrich and Yumi get along well with Samurai Jack, who has decided to train them in additional martial arts besides Penchak Silak so as to better prepare them for fights in both the real world and the virtual world.
  • As they fight in the virtual world, they've had plenty of interactions with the gods who deal with cyberspace:
    • William gets along surprisingly well with Tron, as both find common ground over being brainwashed by their respective Big Bads for a long period of time and being forced to fight their friends. And just as Tron has been at risk of being turned back into Rinzler, William is at risk of being captured and turned back into XANA's Dragon.
    • While allies with the Kirigaya family as whole, Jérémie (though the others didn't escape it either) was on the end of a stern lecture from Kirito concerning the treatment and dismissal of the clone of William that was created to cover for William being turned into XANA's slave. While they admit that it probably would've been unrealistic to find a way to keep him around as the first conflict with XANA came to a close, his deactivation should've been handled more tactfully.
      • Both Ulrich and William are impressed with Yuuki Konno's sword skills, even more so when she proved capable of driving off the Scyphozoa, cutting off its tentacles before it could disarm her. Odd likewise, is impressed by Shino's accuracy, and sees several similarities between her ALO form and his Lyoko avatar, and had a contest with her to see who could destroy more of XANA's monsters. Sinon came out on top, but Odd took the loss in stride, seeing many more XANA attacks where he can even the score with her.
      • None of them have anything to nice to say about Nobuyuki Sugou, viewing him with extreme disgust (especially in Aelita and Yumi's cases due to being reminded of XANA's more, questionable assaults).
    • They're obviously opposed to other digital threats besides XANA (many of whom XANA has allied with). As such, they're quite willing to help fight against programs like the MCP and Love Machine.
      • Having learned that Agent Smith was responsible for bringing XANA into the Pantheon, the Lyoko Warriors instantly opposed him. However, during a battle with Smith, XANA sent his forces not to assist Smith, but to assist the Lyoko Warriors in driving off the other virus, as he had done during the Marabounta episode. As such, anytime that the Lyoko Warriors will work with XANA, it's to stop Agent Smith.
    • Kevin Flynn has taken Jérémie under his wing, helping to refine the young boy's coding in lieu of Franz Hopper, given that XANA managed to kill him. He's also acting as a surrogate father to Aelita for that same reason.
  • Due to having an abusive father himself, Ulrich is NOT a fan of the abusive parents in the Pantheon, viewing them as being far, far worse than his dad, who was, at his core, a mere education papa.
  • Being that she comes from Japan, Yumi was surprised to see that many deities come from her home country. She's not getting involved in their activities though, XANA is enough to deal with as it is.
    • This feeling increased due to sharing a name with another Yumi in the Pantheon, who incidentally, also uses fans in combat. Again, no hard feelings from this Yumi, but also again, XANA and his allies are enough to deal with as it is.
  • Aelita absolutely despises The Men in Black, as they kidnapped her mother right before her eyes and were the catalyst for the circumstances that drove her father insane, enabled XANA to become a threat in the first place, and ultimately got her stuck in Lyoko for eleven years.
  • They've also teamed up with Ryan Steele (see below) and his fellow VR Troopers, as both of their enemies (XANA and Grimlord) are essentially after the same goal — Grimlord, however, has a physical form he uses in the real world, but his identity is not known to either Team Lyoko or the VR Troopers, thus complicating their efforts to fight both.
  • After helping them out against XANA, Jérémie and Aelita became acquainted with Kosmo and Nova, finding some similarities in their relationships with each other.
  • After some time, it was discovered that their series was originally heavily influenced by Lain's series (most apparent in their original pilot), with Aelita having been designed as an Expy of her. Odd was mildly interested, Ulrich remained quiet, Yumi was unnerved, Jérémie thought it might be worth a shot to bring the groups' powers into the real world, while Aelita is wondering if she should talk to Lain.
  • When Lord Dominator was possessed by XANA, the Lyoko Warriors had to call in most of their virtual world allies to stop the threat... mainly because XANA decided to station an army of his strongest monsters to guard the tower. Aelita barely made it in time to deactivate it, and all seemed well... until Commander Peepers marched into the factory and revealed how XANA was taking steps to win over Lord Hater. They tried to convince Hater that XANA was just using him, but, much to their horror, XANA had used Yolanda's form to seduce Hater, causing him to fall in love with XANA and reject their warnings. The sheer... wrongness of that declaration nearly caused them to vomit (Odd didn't know whether to laugh or scream).
    • Wander eventually heard of this, and decided to help Hater and XANA by going into the virtual worlds to talk with XANA. The Lyoko Warriors and Sylvia begged Wander to reconsider, as the entire situation reeked of being a trap. Aelita even brought up how XANA had coldly murdered her father, was on the verge of conquering their entire world, and was not someone Wander could befriend. Wander was adamant however, forcing them to compromise. If Wander should ever go into Lyoko or any of the other virtual worlds, then the Lyoko Warriors will be keeping an eye on him, with Sylvia going with him to serve as muscle.

  • Mysterious Connection with: Spyro, Frodo
  • He appeared in the Pantheon after his fatal fall on planet Sidewinder, and has been spotted near several locations. Everyone is now on a lookout for him in case he begins loading up on A.I.s again.
  • The Freelancer A.I. each had a specific ability that allowed soldiers extra powers on the field. However, after the fall of Project Freelancer, the Meta began collecting these A.I.s for himself. No one really knows why, but with every A.I. he gains, he becomes more dangerous. It is also because of this that the Council of Shadows is trying to keep him from crossing paths with any A.I.s, which is a challenge seeing how surprisingly intelligent the Meta is in spite of his insanity.
  • He is pleased to find that both Church, or Alpha as he would rather call him, and Epsilon are both in the Pantheon. He is also very pleased to find that there are different types of A.I.s in the Pantheon as well. Now the Meta can finish what he started, and then some.
  • Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long are all deathly afraid of him, having heard of all of his feats and crimes. They all agree to not be anywhere near him.
  • Because of the Meta's interest in Clank and Bladewolf, he has made enemies out of Ratchet and Raiden.
  • The Meta doesn't really care if that he has enemies. If he can get the AIs, that's what matters.
  • X, Zero, and Axl are weary of him due to being under the influence of a program called Sigma. Meta doesn't seem to be as interested in them as they aren't usual A.I.s.
  • County Gears has expressed interest in allying with him. Should she succeeded... BE VERY AFRAID.
  • No one is able to understand what the Meta is saying, as all he does is snarl. However, it's clear that he understands the English language just fine. Apparently, he used to speak English before getting shot in the throat. Sigma was actually given to him so that people could understand him, but it corrupted him instead.
  • The AI that set him off in the first place has a notable resemblance to both Spyro and Frodo. Some people are wondering what the connection between the Meta and those characters could be.
  • He is quite pissed off at Malcolm Hargrove for taking his helmet. Hargrove's current plans for the helmet are unknown. And then Tucker worn his armor, giving the Meta more reasons to hate him.
  • For reasons unexplained, there are times that the Meta feels... sad. Maybe it's because one of the men who made him is now with his former comrades.
    • Once Oum's ascended in the House of Workmanship, he has become one of the only people the Meta won't harm as a result.
  • It's been confirmed that he stands no chance fighting Agent Carolina. He was not happy about it at all, particularly how Epsilon distracted him in a very crucial moment with the now immortal line:
    Epsilon: OOH, Son of a bitch!
    • Needless to say, he was angry at seeing Carolina ascended - specially as he thought she died once he threw her off a cliff.
  • Is the only Red vs. Blue deity who doesn't like Master Chief - a hatred shared by John-117, as the Meta made pretty clear that he wants to add Cortana to his collection of AI (specially as she achieved the Metastability so desired by Sigma).
  • Also has a seat in the House of Power.

  • Opposed by: The house of Technology, The Investigation Team, General Fletcher
  • Rotom the Plasma Pokémon is highly disliked by many other deities who rely on technology, as Rotom has the ability to take control of any technology. While Rotom never uses this ability for evil, most deities are annoyed by the fact that Rotom will instead use this ability for playing pranks and having fun.
    • One of the few deities that actually gets along well with Rotom is Nero Yuzurizaki, as her Toys allows her to control machinery with a stick. Nero also frequently irritates other deities because while she mostly uses her Toys to catch criminals, she also uses her Toys for pranking others as well.
  • Rotom's temple is filled to the brim with many microwaves, refrigerators, fans, lawn mowers and washing machines as while Rotom can screw with other technology for fun, Rotom can use these appliances for combat and gets a new typing and attack depending on what Rotom possesses.
    • Due to one of his past incarnations, Rotom is a surprisingly big fan of shooting gallery's; so much so that Rotom got one installed in his temple with targets of other ghost Pokémon. Gengar doesn't know how to feel about this.
  • Ever since many TV's have been invaded by Rotom whenever it wants to sleep, The Investigation team have been very wary of Rotom in the event that it decides to use this ability for other purposes.
  • Due to Rotom liking a lot of deities (Even if they don't like Rotom back), Rotom avoids The Ghostbusters like the plague ever since the time when they came to Rotom's chateau and attacked him.
  • Despite its weakness to other ghosts, Rotom is good friends with other ghostly deities including fellow ghost type Pokémon Gengar and Aegislash as well as Sayo Aisaka and Yuyuko Saigyouji.
  • Even though Rotom usually uses its abilities for fun, Rotom will often use its abilities to screw with the Mad Scientists of the pantheon, since as a mortal, he once knew a human that went crazy after using his knowledge for evil.
  • Due to Rotom's ability to control a different element depending on the appliance Rotom possesses, Rotom gets along well with other users of Elemental Powers such as Aang, Korra and Gust.
  • Rotom can also be found in the House of Otherness.

  • Complicated Relationship: The House of Love
  • Rival: Liara T'Soni
  • Dan had only one goal in life: to marry the girl he loved, Serena van der Woodsen. There was one major obstacle: their social standings. Serena was born into wealth and had everything handed to her in a silver platter, while Dan had a modest upbringing. To earn Serena's affections, Dan created the "Gossip Girl" website, dedicated to learn all the dirty little secrets of the rich and privileged in the Upper East Side. In his Gossip Girl identity, Dan caused a lot of trouble for a lot of people, breaking many friendships in the process. Against all logic and reason, Serena thought Dan's actions were the most romantic thing ever and agreed to marry him.
  • Despite the moral ambiguity he had indulged in, Dan's skill as an observer, manipulator and writer were acknowledged by the Court of the Gods, so he was granted a place in the Pantheon and allowed to take on the Gossip Girl's identity again. Dan was also inducted into the Grand United Alliance of Good, as a member of the Intelligence Division.
    • With his ascension, every cellphone and computer in the Pantheon was instantly updated with an app that gave instant access to Gossip Girl's website, giving Dan eyes and ears over what happens across the Pantheon.
    • The amount of dirt Dan had obtained gave him some unwanted attention in the form of Liara T'Soni, secretly the new Shadow Broker, who feared what could happen if Gossip Girl's assets fell into the wrong hands. This has caused some conflict between them. Although Dan dismissed Liara's concerns, as he would never use Gossip Girl for evil purposes, he did admit he respects Liara as an information broker and uses their conflict to keep himself on his toes. On the other hand, he did run afoul of the Illusive Man and has promised to do whatever he can to stop him.
  • Because of their massive sense of empathy, Peter Parker and Shido Itsuka became friends with Dan, even after hearing of his deeds as Gossip Girl. While he did scheme and lie and spread nasty stories about a lot of people, Dan ultimately rose above all of that and grew up. Besides, what happened with Gossip Girl wasn't nearly as bad as the webware incident or the conflict with Nia Honjou. With Dan taking on the role of Gossip Girl in the Pantheon again, Shido and Peter decided to become his advisors to prevent him from crossing moral lines.
  • His actions as Gossip Girl earned him a very stern taking-to from Jean-Luc Picard, who reprimanded Dan for every screw-up he did in his quest for popularity. Having learned humility from his experiences, Dan admitted he deserved every word Jean-Luc threw at him and has asked The Good Captain to become his mentor and prevent him from falling into old habits.
  • Earned some respect from the Houses of Mind Games and Trickery because of his attitude towards the Upper East Side: he denounced the people of the Upper East Side as shallow or immoral, so he decided to create Gossip Girl as an effort to prove that a man of humble origins could be just as devious and scheming as the upper class. When he revealed himself as the biggest schemer in New York, everyone was forced to admit Dan had beat them at their own game.
  • Dan has earned some unwanted attention from Palpatine and Big Brother, who think Gossip Girl's network could be useful in increasing his presence in the Pantheon. Others, like Arcturus Mengsk, believe Gossip Girl can inspire rebellion among their subjects, so they have taken measures to destroy Gossip Girl. Needless to say, Dan has no intention of letting that happen. As an information broker, Dan became enemies with Sombra, who looked forward to hacking into Gossip Girl's network, motivating Dan to further upgrade his security measures to oppose her.
  • The members of the House of Love don't really like that Dan's quest to earn Serena's affections caused him to do some morally questionable things, such as damaging friendships, uncovering sensitive secrets and even revealing that his sister lost his virginity (ok, to be fair, his sister gave him permission to post that). Also, some suspect that his love for Serena is only motivated by her enormous wealth. Dan was offended by such statement and clarified that he really loves Serena, money or not.
  • Despite his work for the GUAG, Dan is quick to point out he is not a hero. Given his line of work, he considers himself just a guy who lets heroes stay heroes. He still spreads gossip about the Pantheon's denizens on a regular basis. Old habits die hard, apparently. The most charitable interpretation of his actions as Gossip Girl in the Pantheon is that he doesn't want others to share his burden and wants his friends to keep their consciences clean. The least charitable is that his position in the GUAG is merely a way to keep him on the straight and narrow and if he is left to his devices, his talents as Gossip Girl could be used towards achieving more negative goals.
