    Weeping Angels 
The Weeping Angels, Divine "Statues" (The Lonely Assassins, The Deadliest Assassins in the Universe)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Blink_Doctor_Who_1882.jpg
  • Greater Divine Beings
  • Symbol: A seemingly harmless angel statue that looks like it's crying...
  • Theme Music: Time of the Angels
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, often leaning to Stupid Evil when dealing with the Doctor
  • Portfolio: Breakout Villain, Killing You Nicely, Eldritch Abomination, Turns to Stone When People Are Looking and Can Move Super Fast When They Look Away or Blink, Only Exists to Kill, "For fun sir", Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant, As Old as Time Itself, Tricking Weeping Angels Into Looking at Each Other as Their Only Weakness, Counterproductive acts of evil
  • Domains: Aliens, Stone, Angels, Time, Stealth, Surprise
  • Allies: The have no friends, SCP-173 (somewhat)
  • Enemies: EVERYONE, no mater who they are or what alignment they have. Special mention goes to the Doctor and all others from the House of Time and Space, the two Medusas, Nozdormu, Raul Menendez, Akeno Himejima, Irina Shidou, Raynare, the Anarchy Sisters, Batman, Gandalf, Wildstyle, and all other Angels in the Pantheon (yes, including both Satans).
  • Weeping Angels are among the most dangerous beings in existence. They look like harmless statues but if you blink or turn away just for a moment they'll be in your face before you realize it. They are fast, faster than Sonic, faster than Superman, and even faster than the Flash. The only thing you can do to keep them from killing you is look at them for as long as possible. If you do, they turn to stone and can't hurt you when they're like that. Most frightening of all is until they get you, you can never be sure if a Weeping Angel is just a statue, and you can't be sure if a statue is really a Weeping Angel. Any statue, however old, however broken, could be a Weeping Angel looking for its next kill.
  • As stated above, they have no interest in aligning with anyone. They only want anything and one thing only, to hunt down anything that breathes. They hunt because they feel like it, and nothing more. And what's worse, they are almost completely unstoppable. You can't destroy them. If you do, they'll just reform back and snap your neck.
  • One touch from a Weeping Angel sends you into the past. They consume the energy from the life you might've lead. Luckily, that's where the House of Time and Space comes in. They travel into the past and retrieve any Weeping Angel victims. This makes the Weeping Angels quite angry, as it doesn't really give them much to eat, especially since the House is aided by the Doctor.
  • They have heard of Raul Menendez's actions against the Spy and thus decide that out of everyone, he could make excellent prey. This is bad news for the Old Cyclops because his skills as a manipulator are useless against them. There is no reasoning with the Weeping Angels. They do as they like. He has even lost many of his followers to them. Good news is that he managed to get a book on how to escape them should the time come.
  • A lot of the other angels don't like the Weeping Angels at all. They are far too creepy to even be considered angels. To be fare, they aren't angels. They are aliens that appear as such. Still very creepy though. Even Satan (both of them) doesn't want be anywhere near them.
  • More so, because they turn to stone when sentient beings are looking at them, they are immune to petrification. So Medusa can't turn them to stone because they already are stone, much to her frustration.
  • Apparently, they once confronted Geralt of Rivia but didn't attack him. No one knows why, and they obviously aren't talking.
  • And don't even try to take a picture of one. "That which holds the image of an angel becomes itself an angel." Even if you have only a picture of a Weeping Angel, that doesn't mean you're safe. Video footage of Weeping Angels is even worse. The most frightening.
  • And even if you don't blink, they can always turn out the lights.
  • The Daleks don't think very highly of them though.
  • Spooky has employed the Angels to act as Specimen 6s in her house. The Angels don't really complain about it at all. They're just happy that they can kill people. They're also happy that there are so many floors to the house. It is for that reason that they usually have one on each floor.
  • What? You're still here?! Close this folder and turn back now befo--

Intermediate Gods

    Agent Carolina 
Agent Carolina, Goddess of Chameleon Camouflage (Sis, Miss Fussy-Britches, Carolina(?) Church)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_girls_by_montyoum-d4gfswz_5713.png
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her helmet
  • Theme: Extraction (or VelociROCKtor, in her off days...)
  • Alignment: True Neutral to Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Armor Color Change Power, Close-Range Dance Battler, Tragic Hero, Not Taking Well Becoming Always Second Best, The Atoner, Big Good for the Blood Gulch Crew, Defrosting Ice Queen, Easily Forgiven, neglects her teammates in a competitive scenario, Fiery Redhead, Lightning Bruiser, became very much a jerk before becoming nicer, The Worf Effect, father is Dr. Leonard Church
  • Domain(s): Mercenaries, Camouflage, Tragedy, Determination
  • Superior: Monty Oum
  • Allies: Epsilon, Agent Washington, Leonard Church, Dexter Grif, Lavernius Tucker, Caboose, Simmons, Donut, Sarge, Pyrrha Nikos and the rest of Team RWBY and JNPR, Qrow Branwen, Master Chief, Commander Shepard, Solid Snake.
  • Complicated Relations: Agent Texas (AI based off of her mother), Locus
  • Enemies: The Meta, Felix, Cinder Fall, Adam Taurus, Roman Torchwick, AM, Harley Quinn
  • As the Blood Gulch Crew campaigned to get the rest of their team ascended, the outstanding member of Project Freelancer who wound becoming a worthy leader and combatant had no problems getting to deity status, even with all her personality flaws.
  • Her ascension meant Epsilon could return to being Carolina's AI, a partnership that led to great results in Chorus. It's also a deeply symbolic relationship, as Epsilon is based on the memories of Carolina's father Leonard Church.
  • For her title, the Pantheon decided to recognize Carolina's Adaptive Camouflage, that allows her to disguise as both the environment and enemy soldiers. This drew the attention of Solid Snake, who had similar enhancements with the OctoCamo and bonded with Carolina for similar traumas and combat skills. Snake eventually learned she was a fan of his, but got surprised that Carolina's also a fangirl of his enemy Revolver Ocelot.
  • Has become closer to many deities in the house of Family with parental conflicts, as her upbringing was tough: her mother died while in the military, and his father spent the rest of his days trying to revive her in some way, leading to Carolina becoming one of the best in the Project Freelancer he spearheaded just to make him notice her and approve what his daughter had become.
  • Another tragedy in her life regards York, a fellow Freelancer who she was quite close with possible Unresolved Sexual Tension, but the last time Carolina saw him they fought, and he died a few years later. Many hope this doesn't repeat with Washington, as their brotherly friendship seems to be going on a deeper level.
  • Wiz and Boomstick once answered the question of who would win in a fight between Carolina and The Meta. She didn't like the prospect of fighting a former friend (even if it's one who threw her off a cliff), but she's a little relieved to know that when it came down to it, she'll come out on top, as the research showed.
    • If you value your life, never talk about him in her presence, or worse, compare her to Tex. While Carolina had some revenge once by beating up drones that resembled Tex, her presence in the Pantheon still brings some bad memories.
    • On the other hand, she takes comparisons of between Pyrrha and her (as both look and sound rather alike) rather well and they occasionally spar. She also expresses pity for Pyrrha's departure from the mortal realm. Pyrrha's teammates and her friends from Team RWBY have grown to admire Carolina as well.
  • Seeing Felix already ascended made Carolina uneasy, as the mercenary is basically her Evil Counterpart. Her opinion about his former partner Locus has improved, on the other hand. And Roman, who makes her think of Locus without any morals whatsoever, has gotten her instant dislike. Roman's boss Cinder ascending was also terrible for Carolina, as she's the responsible for Pyrrha's death. Carolina also dislikes Adam Taurus, an extremist whose blade might be powerful enough to cup her armor, and Neo, as she's not pleased to see a killer good at disguises on the same house as Wash.
  • Master Chief said he considers her his female equivalent, something Carolina was deeply proud to hear.
  • Got closer to Commander Shepard due to equal battle skills and the fact Carolina resembles Shepard's female form.
  • The house of Music prefers not to comment on her singing skills, and not because Carolina could easily kill most of them. However, they managed to keep her away by saying she's only allowed to perform if this is played right before.
  • Harley Quinn was amused at how Carolina had a similar voice to hers and decided to approach her. While Carolina is getting used to living with quirky people, Harley was too crazy and morally reprehensible for her, and she has responds aggressively whenever Harley decides to pester her again.
  • Ever since Temple locked Carolina down in her suit for days, she's terrified of repeating such an ordeal, and became a fierce opposer to AM given the computer prefers this type of punishment.
  • Upon his ascension to the pantheon, Carolina was introduced to Qrow Branwen through her allies from the world of Remnant. They’ve formed a mutual appreciation of each other’s skills in combat. Qrow in particular respected her tactical knowledge, and Carolina in turn respected his weapon techniques.

    SA-X 
SA-X, Deity of Different-Looking Doppelgängers
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4557df296e5cf1ec34fa69e210037e49.png
  • Intermediate Deity
  • Symbol: Purple version of Samus' helmet with blank eyes staring out of the visor
  • Theme Music: The SA-X Approaches, Escape From The SA-X, SA-X Boss Theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Dressing Up Differently Than The Thing It Is Duplicating, Big Bad, Humanoid Abomination, Implacable Man, Hopeless Boss Fight, Footsteps, Blank Eyes, Weaker Transformation, Self-Duplication
  • Domains: Appearance, Viruses, Hunters
  • Allies: Pyramid Head
  • Enemies: Samus Aran, The Metroid Hatchling, Dark Samus, Mother Brain, Mega Man
  • X Parasites. A parasite what infects other organisms to gain their DNA after killing them, gaining the ability to turn into perfect replicas of them. One of them infected Samus Aran but was saved by a vaccine. However, the Parasite had already infected parts of her Varia Suit, eventually mutating into a replica of her called SA-X. However, aside of having purple parts what the real Varia Suit lacks, Samus having the Fusion Suit makes it so that you cannot really mistake the two.
  • No one is sure how SA-X is still alive, considering that Samus destroyed BSL Station which it inhabited, with it crashing and detroying SR388, the planet where the X Parasites originated from. Maybe one of the offspring got lucky and somehow survived.
  • SA-X is a heartless creature. You cannot reason with it. You cannot even talk to it. It does its mission, whatever it is, and will kill anything what comes to its way. If you see SA-X, run. After all, it is like Samus without zero sense of morality, and we know how powerful she is.
    • However, where SA-X copied Samus' arsenal like Screw Attack, Ice Beam, Super Missiles and Power Bomb, and can think two steps ahead of its target, like destroying any terminals they can use to help themselves, SA-X didn't copy brains for combat.
    • The actions of one particular SA-X have piqued the curiousity of Master Xehanort. Particularly, saving Samus from the Omega Metroid, an action that resulted in its own demise, yet also granted Samus the Ice Beam needed to defeat the Omega Metroid. Could the SA-X have been starting to develop a heart of its own? Or was it simply seeing that it and Samus shared a common enemy in that moment? Whatever the case, Master Xehanort has been observing the SA-X closely in secret.
  • It doesn't seem to trust Mother Brain, even though they both hate Samus. It seems to stern from the fact that Mother Brain is deeply involved with Metroids, the thing what was made to kill X Parasites.
    • Ridley also doesn't seem to look that high on SA-X, maybe stemming from the fact that one of the X Parasites harvested Ridley's remains for his DNA, eventually turning into Ridley X. Granted it was the remains of a clone, but still.
    • It also doesn't trust Dark Samus due of the fact that she was born from the remains of Metroid Prime, meaning that she might have Metroid DNA. However, SA-X has no intentions to mess with Dark Samus for now.
    • Many have pointed out however, that Metroid Prime is the result of extreme mutations of a Tallon Metroid from Phazon exposure, and not a natural part of the Metroid life cycle. It is possible that Metroid Prime would no longer recognize an X-Parasite as its prey due to being so horrifically mutated and feeding primarily on Phazon. This has done little to change the SA-X's mind.
    • And of course, it despises the fact that the Hatchling is in the Pantheon now, due of Metroids being its one true weakness.
  • SA-X is able to reproduce asexually when it can, meaning that it can potentially create a small army if given enough time. Most gods are keeping their eyes on it.
    • One of the clones managed to escape into Earth, where it fought against Mega Man. Where Mega Man at first defeated SA-X, its greatly upgraded mutation form almost destroyed the Blue Bomber if the real Samus hadn't come to save the day.
  • The only deity what SA-X has even any sense of respect is Pyramid Head due of how unstoppable he is. Good thing that SA-X doesn't have any X Parasites around to infect Pyramid Head, otherwise we would be in major trouble.

    Thel 'Vadam 
Thel 'Vadam, God of Invisibility Cloaks (The Arbiter)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_arbiter.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Prophet's Blade
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Formerly Lawful Neutral)
  • Portfolios: Asskicking Equals Authority, Badass Baritone, Four-Star Badass, Blue Blood, Cool Sword, Combat Pragmatist, Frontline General, Hero of Another Story, Laser Blade, Reasonable Authority Figure, Shameful Strip, The Strategist, Warrior Monk
  • Domains: War, Law, Good, Trickery, Alien
  • Followers: The Sangheili
  • Allies: Adrian Shepard, Isaac Clarke, Worf, Urdnot Wrex, Zeratul, Riku, Sarah Kerrigan, Zuko, Gabriel Belmont, Harry Potter
  • Rivals: Jago, B. Orchid, Spinal, Hisako, Riptor, Maya Fallegeros, Sadira, Scarface
  • Opposes: The Flood
  • Opposed by: The Combine, Arthas Menethil
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Master Chief
  • Among the Covenant, there was once a revered warrior among their fold. That one was supposed to eliminate Master Chief. Instead he befriended the human, earning his banishment (To be fair, he was already disgraced when he first lost to the Chief). Yet the stories of his adventures did not end there. This warrior ended up to be one of the biggest thorns in the Covenant 's back. And it will be the same in the Pantheon, as he graces his way into the Pantheon due to his iconic invisibility cloak.
  • Master Chief was naturally the first to meet up with the Arbiter. The two have a rather… complicated history to say the least. Starting out as enemies, the two have now become crucial allies. Their followers work together to take down the Covenant.
  • The Arbiter remains one of the Covenant's greatest failures. There was a time where he was one of their most reliable strategists, stymying their human opponent with victories. The fact that he has ascended has further shaken their ranks. There are already talks of the Covenant breaking rank form a rival temple. Luckily, such efforts have been unsuccessful due to a lack of leadership as well as infighting within their group. The Combine are much more organized, quelling such talks for now.
  • On the other hand, Thel 'Vadam's redemption may be one of the greatest Heel–Face Turn stories of the known Omniverse. various other gods who went through the same process congratulated him on his ascension. Zuko especially was proud of the Arbiter for achieving this moment.
  • Although he hasn't played such an active role in fighting the Flood as Master Chief, he remains among their greatest enemies. Of course, this put him in opposition of Arthas Menethil.
  • He ultimately declined a spot as high priest of Adrian Shepard, God of Popular Mooks. He has long since outgrew that notion, thus initially disqualifying him from the role. Still, he maintains a tight friendship with the soldier.
  • There has been rumors suggesting that he took part in the latest Killer Instinct tournament. Only that proved to be false. As there were many before him that took the role as the Arbiter, this one is from another time. Thel 'Vadam is not yet sure which one it is though.
  • His race came from a long line of Proud Warrior Races called The Sangheili. They used to be one of the most prized forces for the Covenant as the Elites before the organization betrayed them. The humiliation prompted Wrex and Worf to fight bitterly against their benefactors. When the Arbiter ascended, both gods welcomed him with open arms. They can seen either kicking evil alien ass or their own for training.
  • He is well aware of another group of aliens known for their prowess, one who are interested in the hunt above all else. They are led by Scarface, the most well known of their kind. The two races respect each other, though they aren't exactly allies. The Predators are interested in putting the Arbiter to the test, of which the Arbiter declined to take up.
  • To his delight, he has earned the aid of Zeratul. The Void God holds the Combine with nothing but contempt and is glad to see another alien group fight against it.
  • One of the most famous practitioners of the Invisible Cloak, Harry Potter greeted him and have him thanks. The wizard helped develop formed the temple so that magical users would feel just as home as their technological counterparts.
  • In addition to his customized plasma sword, "Prophet's Bane", Arbiter Vadam's position as a Pantheon member allows him to call upon any weapon or vehicle made or used by his people, for use by him or his allies, in the event of trouble breaking out; more than once, when battle has broken out within the Pantheon, he has lent the forces of good various plasma weapons and versatile vehicles. And if some serious power is needed, he can even call in a Scarab, allowing him and his allies to easily turn the tide of a battle or break nearly any siege.

Lesser Gods

    Fa Mulan 
Fa Mulan, The Goddess Who Disguised Herself as the Opposite Gender (Ping)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_mulan-disneyscreencapscom-9215_7384.jpg

    The Kaernk 
The Kaernk, Deity of Invisible Monsters (The Water Monster, Lurky)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaernk.jpg
The Kaernk making splashes
  • Lesser Deity
  • Symbol: A pile of limbs and fresh meat
  • Theme Song: Kaernk Theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Elite Mooks, Invincible Minor Minion, Elite Mooks, Invisibility
  • Domains: Monsters, Water, Eating, Horror, Invisibility
  • Allies: The Gatherers, Spooky, Dr. Griffin, The Kraken, Bruce, SCP-169
  • Enemies: The Houses of Water & Moisture and Aquatic Life (Particularly Ecco the Dolphin), Scarface
  • The Kaernk is an aquatic creature with a ferocious appetite and a terrifying presence. It's invisible to the naked eye, so few people are actually able to see it and has a preference from consuming meat, particularly that of humans. It was originally found at the flooded halls of Brennenburg Castle, where it proceeded to chase after whoever wandered into their vicinity. Its ascension occured when a few mangled bodies where found on the house of Aquatic Life but no culprit in sight, until someone discovered that an unseen creature was behind the attacks. Nowadays it resides in a temple where it's a giant dark flooded corridor where it tends to eat the fresh meat provided to eat and also any wanderer that dares enter its temple.
  • Since it's closer to an aggressive predator rather than an actual monster, the Kaernk is more manageable than the other creatures found in the same universe. Infamously known as the Water Monster, the Kaernk is often considered the scarier than the Gatherers for the simple reason that you can't see him coming and has made some people be terrified of water.
  • While no one has been able to decipher how he looks, some people have discovered that the Kaernk resembles an eldritch dolphin, something that Ecco the Dolphin found concerning.
  • Its relationship with the Gatherers is neutral at best but they remain alliance in a sense. However, the Kaernk is known to have eaten the remains of mauled grunts before so it's not picky if they happen to be the only thing that's around to eat.
  • Spooky has heard great things about the Kaernk, although she knows it better as the Water Monster. She has a specimen who behaves like it, Specimen 13 better known as the Siren and has tried to get the Kaernk to become another of her Mansion's dozens of monsters that roam the halls. Of course, that proved a challenge considered the pantheon authorities have limited her involvement with other mosnters but relocating the Kaernk wasn't that much difficult for her. She however, finds it hard to have the Siren and the Kaernk to cooperate.
  • Given its Invisibility, the common deities find it hard to see outside of the splash it makes. Thanks to the advanced methods that the higher ups in the pantheon has access to, deities who can use X-Ray Vision or have Super Senses are often tasked to deal with the Kaernk whenever it breaks loose from its containment zone, although given the lack of large bodies of water in most of the pantheon temples, this is rarely an issue.
    • The deity who tends to go after the creature the most is Scarface. The Yautja are very proficient at hunting and he considers the creature worthy of a good hunt, even if at the end the Kaernk proves to be no challenge for him.
  • Dr. Griffin took a liking to the Kaernk since it can appreaciate the invisibility of the creature and he himself has been interesting in studying. Given the animalistic behavior of the monster, Griffin hasn't really become friends with it but the Kaernk is unusually chummy with the Invisible Man.
  • Given it's aquatic nature, it was a matter of time before the monster interacted with others of its kind. Most of said deities detest it, the more evil ones either tolerate him or brush it off as a annoying creature. Then there is the Kraken and SCP-169, whose sheer size intimidates the invisible monster to the point that are probably the few aquatic creatures the Kaernk won't bother attacking, the same goes for the Ancient Ones such as Cthulhu.
    • Also has some begrudging respect for Bruce given his sheer hunger and vicious nature, which resemble the one of the Water Monster but it's a lot more effective at killing anyone that approaches his vicinity.
  • Hates barrels and boxes, most deities that enter its temple can simply avoid it by standing in one of them and avoiding contact with the water. The Kaernk can also be killed by it since the creature is small enough that a simple wooden box can kill it.
  • There are a few variants of Kaernk that are bigger and move a lot faster. The pantheon version is a regular one but it is said that the bigger version are more vicious and dangerous.
  • Can also be found at the House of Monsters.

    Lucina 
Lucina, Goddess of Impersonating Historical Figures ("Marth", Foreseer, Warrior from a Doomed Future, Defiant of Destiny, Future Witness)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lucinassbu.png
As "Marth" 
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The brand of the Exalt, or her Parallel Falchion
  • Theme Song: You May Call Me "Marth", or Rival when fighting
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: having hereditary blue hair, being revealed to be a woman, Adorkable, The Comically Serious, rarely smilling, but doing so at the right time, being a pretty girl disguised as a pretty boy
  • Domains: Disguise, Renown, Identity.
  • Allies: Chrom(her father), Robin, Tiki, Lissa, Owain, Kellam, Tharja, Sumia, Cordellia, Marth, Ike, Caeda, Sigurd and Seliph, Madoka Kaname, Link, Anna, Kouta Kazuraba, Kazuma Kenzaki, Pit, Silver the Hedgehog, Future Trunks, Artoria Pendragon, Squigly, Parasoul, Palutena, Nozdormu, Serah Farron
  • Enemies: Grima, Skull Face, The Dahaka, Acnologia, Nightmare, Soul Edge, Deathwing, Lust
  • Rival: Captain Falcon
  • Adores: Meta Knight
  • Lucina's ascension was an accident. At one point, Marth was missing from the Pantheon (he was summoned as an einherjar to assist wanderers in the Outrealms), and a search party was sent to find him. They later found Marth and returned him to the Pantheon, only he seemed to be wearing different clothes and a new mask. It was actually Lucina, and for one reason or another, she did not drop the act. Her secret was only found when the real Marth returned.
  • Impressed by how convincingly she could make herself resemble Marth (voice needed some work, the gods admit), she was given the title of being the matron deity over Dead Person Impersonations, and those who also impersonate men and women of times past.
  • She was allegedly disguised as Marth because after the fall of Grima, she left Ylisse to find her own place in the world. As such, she accepted her new role.
  • Upon learning of Lucina's presence in the Pantheon, Robin reunited with Lucina, much to both of their joy. No one is completely sure which gender Robin is (though the incident with Captain Falcon suggests male, it's not conclusive). Therefore no one is sure what the relationship between Robin and Lucina is. Friends? Lovers? Parent and time-displaced child? Different gods have asked Lucina, but there have been differing reports of her answers.
    • Speaking of Captain Falcon, she and Robin are now considered rivals, by the Captain himself. He's apologized for attacking them and her father, and their rivalry is now more lighthearted, as he was impressed when they showed their moves.
  • When he returned to the Pantheon before she ascended, blowing Lucina's cover, she was very excited to learn that Hero King Marth himself is in the Pantheon. Since everything was cleared up, she's begun to see him as something of a mentor, though Marth's not sure how to take this. He is glad that his descendant ended up as good a person as she is, though. Both of them are planning to test their respective Falchions against each other in the 4th Smash Bros. tournament.
  • Her belief that hope will never die has made her a friend of Madoka Kaname. Skull Face also approves, which makes Lucina uncomfortable.
    • Due to this friendship, after learning of the Great Upheaval and the upcoming Pantheonic Rebellion, she has decided to cast her lot with the Rebellion to defend Madoka from the wrath of YHVH.
  • Learned that she's Not So Different from Link, who also wore masks to impersonate people in one timeline.
  • When returning to the mortal plane for any reason, she tends to don her mask once more.
  • Was unbelievably horrified to learn that Grima is alive in the Pantheon, but is aware that he is thankfully not as capable as he once was. She knows that she, Robin, and their allies can stop him again.
    • After hearing rumors that he might be involved in whatever happens during the Pantheonic Rebellion, she has joined forces with Robin in preparation.
    • When she learned about the only dragon deities whom Grima calls allies, some of that hatred transferred to them as well.
  • When Marth's High Priest, Chrom, heard that Lucina had ascended, he was happy for his daughter. He still wished he himself could ascend though, remarking that he supposes he'll get his chance another day.
    • That day did come and both father and daughter were finally reunited.
  • For her actions in changing the Bad Future of her world through time travel, she has earned the ire of the The Dahaka, which hunts her down without end. However, she has allies who will stand by and aid her to the end, so she does not fear it. In fact, whenever she confronts it, she only has one thing to say:
    Lucina: "I challenge my fate!"
  • Despises both Nightmare and Soul Edge, seeing them as no better than Grima in how they desire to absorb souls and spread chaos throughout the Pantheon. As such, she's often one of the first to offer her services in combating them.
  • Due to her past, she's not one to understand levity, and Cannot Tell a Joke.
    • Pit has made it something of his mission to try and get her to laugh or at least smile. He hasn't had much success, but she appreciates the sentiment behind his antics.
  • Has befriended Artoria Pendragon over how they both pretended to be men at one point in their lives, watched their respective kingdoms fall into destruction and despair (albeit for different reasons), and how they traveled through time to prevent those futures from happening (though Lucina is glad that Arturia didn't follow through with her plan). They often spend time either sparring together or talking about their worlds or their respective friends (and maybe something more?) of Robin and Shirou.
  • Has recently been befriended by Silver the Hedgehog and Future Trunks over their similar circumstances. In particular, something about Lucina's voice reminds Silver of his mortal friend, Blaze the Cat.
  • Seems to have developed a fascination towards Meta Knight. It's to the point that her bed is modeled after him and had a replica of his mask to wear. Also, she thinks he is cute.
  • Rumor has it that Lucina and Palutena have a very deep relationship. She denies the claim as the two are just friends. Though, there are times when she gets annoyed with the Goddess.

    Lurantis 
Lurantis, Goddess of Pretending To Be What You Are (The Bloom Sickle Pokemon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/754lurantis.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her blades, glowing like the sun, or the Grassium-Z
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Gender: Female
  • Ability: Leaf Guard
  • Moveset: Solar Blade, Leaf Blade, X-Scissor, Ingrain
    • Z-Move: Bloom Doom
  • Portfolio: Slaying Mantis and Man-Eating Plant, A Plant Pretending To Be A Mantis That Pretends To Be A Plant, One Of The Totem Challenges, Blade Below the Shoulder, Glacier Waif, Powered By The Sun, Only Pokemon Who Can Learn Solar Blade, Green Thumb, The Fighting Narcissist
  • Domains: Plants, Mantids, Mimicry, Solar Power, Blades
  • High Priest: Barrage
  • Allies:
  • On speaking terms with: Pamela Isley and Petey Pirahna
  • Enemies: Evil Pokemon trainers like Team Rocket, Hunter J and Ghetsis Harmonia, The Grand Duke of Owls, Queen Sectonia, Zs'skayr, Chernabog, Nightmare Moon, Mr Burns, Hexxus, Exdeath, Mordremoth
  • Avoids: The House of Birds and Fire & Heat
  • Scares: Misty
  • Lurantis is the evolution of Fomantis, and known as the Bloom Sickle Pokemon. Like Sudowoodo, it is pretending to be something it's not-an orchid mantis. In reality it is based on an orchid flower, which oddly enough is the very plant orchid mantises pretend to be. So it's pretending to be something that pretends to be what it already is.
  • The Lurantis in the pantheon is in fact the very same Totem Lurantis of Mallow's trial, in the same vein as the pantheon's Wishiwashi. Her native home of Lush Jungle and Grass typing makes her more comfortable in the House of Plants than her own house, though. She's chosen to become partners with Yuri the Fusion Duelist, as they share some mutual allies and enemies, and she reminds her of the Predaplants.
  • Gets along with any of her fellow Pokemon in the House of Plants, except Gourgeist for being an asshole. A lot of non-Pokemon there thought she was an actual bug, such as Treebeard. She thought it was a fair mistake since she mistook him for a Trevenant. Lurantis respects the ent for being a guardian of forests and jungles like the ones she lives in.
  • Easy going enough that she gets along with any plant in her house. She even gets along with Poison Ivy and Petey Pirahna, though doesn't agree with their villainous paths. However she can't tolerate Exdeath for being an Omnicidal Maniac of a tree. Or Mordremoth, who'd rather have the jungle to herself. She doesn't like Mr Burns either since he wants to use the House of Plants as dumping ground for his radioactive waste, or Hexxus for wanting to replace it with shopping malls.
  • Misty is creeped out by Lurantis. Sure, Lurantis isn't a Bug type but she looks like a giant praying mantis(even more so as she's a Totem Pokemon) and that's scary enough for her. Being Grass type makes it worse because of the Bloom Sickle's type advantage against her favorite type, Water type Pokemon. Scyther seems to be get along with her even if she isn't a true Bug type. Some in the House of Insects like to ship the two together.
  • When slashing at her enemies, Lurantis looks like she's dancing. Lurantis is considered the most elegant Grass type Pokemon, and she likes to show it off to other plants and bugs. Most in the House of Insects think she's a Bug type, so she likes to claim she's the most elegant insect as well. Queen Sectonia doesn't take kindly to a faux-insect claiming such, and wants her to bug off. Mothra came to her defense and reminded her that she'll always have a place in her house.
  • The signature move of Lurantis is Solar Blade, a physically-oriented Solar Beam that gathers sunlight to unleash as a blade through its scythes. As this move doesn't require charge time in strong sunlight, Lurantis tends to work with those who can provide it. That's why originally she called upon Castform, who fortunately for her was in the pantheon. She's aware there's a certain irony in it given Sunny Day boosts Fire type attacks, her weakness.
  • Gravitates towards any deity relating to the sun, or the light-related Ezalor(so long as they aren't evil) since it lets her immediately use her Solar Blade. That, and as a orchid flower/orchid mantis she prefers the sun. She does not take kindly to gods who wish to block out the sun forever, and in spite of his issues with birds is perfectly willing to work with Chanticleer so the sun will always shine. And like every other Pokemon, she opposes Ghetsis, Giovanni's forces and Hunter J.
  • Like Durant, some have criticized her pretending to be a bug(that pretends to a plant) as a poor method of disguise. Sure she avoids other bugs nibbling on her, but bugs are just as vulnerable to Fire and Flying types. She tries to avoid those houses, particularly Ragnaros as he still treats her as one of many INSECTS!!! he wants to burn. She's willing to stand up for Durant to those that call his steel armor stupid against Heatmor.

Captain MacMillan circa 1996
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The S.A.S. Logo.
  • Theme Song: All Ghillied Up
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Asskicking Equals Authority, Big Good, The Faceless, Four-Star Badass, Friendly Sniper, Being still badass after breaking his leg, Improbable Aiming Skills, Reasonable Authority Figure
  • Domains: Disguises, Sniping, Scottish, Military, Infiltration, Commanding
  • Allies: Captain John Price, Tracer, Tavish DeGroot/The Demoman and other Scottish deities, Solid Snake, Ana Amari, Lockon Stratos, Yoko Littner, The Sniper, The Commander
  • Rivals: Nova Terra
  • Enemies: Imran Zakhaev, Vladimir Makarov, Khaled Al-Asad, General Sheperd, Sniper Wolf, Widowmaker, Hotel Moscow, Spectre
  • Odd Friendship: Chuck Norris
  • A high ranking member of the S.A.S. and the former superior of Captain Price, MacMillan was tasked by the British Goverment in 1996 to assassinate Imran Zakhaev alongside the then-lieutenant Price. Both MacMillan and Price sneaked their way accross Pripyat to a vantage position and shot Zakhaev dead, except he narrowly survived the encounter and only lost an arm. Now in the pantheon, as he has not been seen without his Ghillie suit he was chosen to ascend with it, although he can choose to take it off.
  • Macmillan is notable for almost never missing a shot and being the person who taught Price everything he knows. As such, he ended making friends with several other snipers who were impressed by his marksmanship, even after he broke a leg following an accident with an helicopted falling onto him (Which he personally shot down). Of course, there were a few particular deities that weren't impressed by him like Sniper Wolf or Widowmaker, Macmillan himself plans to bring them to justice someday.
  • Many quickly noticed that Macmillan was Scottish and it shows. Amusingly enough he gets along pretty well with the Demoman, even if their combat styles are pretty much the opposite.
  • Nowadays, Mac takes the role of Baseplate and watches over the S.A.S. teams assigned to certain jobs. He does miss the times he was on the field but he is too old for that now.
  • Not happy to learn that Zakhaev was part of the pantheon's criminal underworld but at least the bugger is still missing an arm. He has been organizing another operation to capture Zakhaev and his lackeys and bring them to justice, but the GUAE has been keeping tabs on Mac because of that.
  • Many thought that the position would go to Solid Snake given his famour carboard box. It turned out that Snake already had a different seat altogether and left the position vacant. That said, Snake and MacMillan do get along very well.
  • Nova Terra just laughed at the sight of MacMillan's Ghillie Suit, saying it doesn't compare to her cloaking device. She may be right, but doesn't mean she is the better sniper.
  • Seems to have a good relationship with the Commander, as his role as Baseplate did turn him into Non-Entity General for the most part. The Commander has taken the role of Baseplate in the past, so he is very familiar with Mac's job.
  • Some say that MacMillan could have stopped the Russian war by himself and he has been compared to Chuck Norris numerous times. Both men respect each other just for that.
  • It has been discovered that Mac may have an alter ego named Captain MacMellon. No comments have been made on the matter.

  • Enemies: The Riddler, The Spy, Penelope Mouse
  • Conflicting Opinion: Celestia Ludenberg
  • The Phantom Thief, Phantom R, is widely known and both feared and awed. Feared by the police force due to him seemingly easily stealing priceless artifacts and artworks of French history, and awed by the public for looking good while doing so. However, he isn't just Phantom R; at day, he's just an average looking lad with a dog named Fondue by the name of Raphael. The odd thing about this is that when looked side by side, Phantom R and Raphael really don't look that different; save for the hat and black suit. Despite this fact, he manages to trick the police force into thinking they are different people. While it is hinted some of his closest friends figured it out, the Court Of Gods were impressed by this feat and approved of his ascension.
  • Phantom R's ascension into the Pantheon was first widely known when there were reports of a deity running around in the shadows near the house of Craft, namely its art museum, which was proven true by the security there reviewing security footage and slowing it down to show him exiting with a painting alongside his dog. Despite their best efforts trying to track down the mysterious purloiner, he escaped into the night. Even weirder for the guards, he was later seen returning a painting later that same night and escaping again. The guards closed the museum down to examine if the new painting was forged and if anything else was tampered with.
    • Cue the next day with Raphael walking by the house to check on how it dealt with him, the authority figures there quickly realized that it was him and surrounded him for questioning. Despite being shocked at how competent they were, Raphael than explained that he was actually checking out the art museum yesterday with Mordecai to judge a work of art he put up, only for Mordecai to realize that someone replaced his painting with a forged copy alongside a calling card from the Riddler with a green question mark on the back of it. Raphael than pledged to help him track down the original copy the Riddler stole and return it. Mordecai was more than happy to verify not only the case, but the artwork that Raphael retrieved as his own, and the Riddler also testified (before getting arrested by Batman), pissed that Phantom R managed to succeed. Given that he technically didn't break any crimes, Raphael was cleared of all potential charges.
      • This incident wasn't the only time Raphael or Phantom R dealt with forgery. As a child, he was deadly ill, and he only survived thanks to his father painting fake copies of famous paintings and selling the real copies, up until he went missing. Now, Phantom R is trying to steal all the fake copies his father created and placed in museums, and return the original works of art to their rightful place. This revelation led to him being placed on much more friendly terms with the house despite their first encounter.
  • In terms of disguises, Raphael's Phantom R disguise surprisingly working is just as audacious as Superman's look or Perry The Platypus's fedora counting as a disguise. They sometimes have friendly banter between which disguise is the most obvious and which disguise could pass in certain circumstances. So far, it's mutually agreed that Perry is the most obvious case of Clark Kenting while Raphael and Clark Kent are neck to neck in how many situations their Phantom R and Superman costumes could be seen as normal.
  • Surprisingly, Scrooge seems to be rather amused by Phantom R. This stems from the fact that he is a Self-Made Man like Scrooge was, going from being a bit of an overconfident jerk to the suave, smooth thief he is today. He can definitely respect that, and even is ready to call on him should he need help trying to find someone who tries to steal from him.
  • Despite his incident with Fondue, make no mistake; they both greatly respect and look out for each other. No matter in his Phantom R clothes or his Raphael clothes, Fondue is always close by. The majority of dogs in the house of Canines seem to at least respect Raphael and Fondue's bond, especially when seeing them train for dog shows. Their impression of Fondue only grew after learning of how he tried to woo female dogs by eating meat in rhythm to music with the female dog he wanted to court.
  • One day while passing through the house of Music, he heard a familiar song by the name of "Samba Carnival" being played within the house, alongside a crowd jumping along to the music. Seeing some nearby maracas for sale, he decided to purchase them, put on his Phantom R outfit, and join in on the fun. Amigo quickly took noticed of how well he was doing and invited him onstage for a on the fly maracas duet. Despite his initial surprise at seeing Amigo as a smart monkey who can use the maracas well, he quickly got in the groove and danced amazingly with him. Amigo was more than pleased to have him perform with him and is more than willing to dance with him again.
    • As a lover of music if it wasn't obvious from his nickname of Rhythm Thief, he has befriended a good number of deities related to music besides Amigo. He has also got into the good graces of the Nerima Daikon Brothers, especially Mako for obvious reasons. While Hideki is peeved that Mako seems more interested in Raphael than him, Raphael's declinal of doing anything romantic with Mako is what keeps Hideki happy with him. He's willing to do missions with the group that interests him. He is also being scouted as a potential new member for the Elite Beat Agents.
  • During his attempt to successfully grow the list of people he successfully backstabbed, The Spy tried to take down Phantom R with his signature attack. Thankfully, Fondue managed to see him trying to backstab him and bit him on the rear, causing the Spy to scream in agony while dropping his knife. Before he could try and reclaim his knife, Phantom R took the knife first, forcing Spy to bring out another knife, forcing Raphael into a Knife Fight, lasting from the grounds of the house of Royalty all the way to the rooftops of the house of FAITH. Surprisingly, he managed to fend off the Spy, having already performed a couple swordfights against someone who claimed to be Napoleon Bonaparte, even managing to backstab him to end the dual. The other mercenaries had a field day upon learning of Spy's defeat, and the French assassin has since sworn revenge on the Rhythm Thief.
  • Celestia seems interested in enrolling Raphael as one of her butlers, given that he actually underwent training on how to be a butler to get closer to Queen Elisabeth. Raphael, not even taking into account the whole "killing to get out of a dangerous school thing", still declined, saying that he already has good connections with Queen Elisabeth for helping her reunite with her daughter, Marie, who he is a friend of. Surprisingly, Celestia actually respects said wish, as even she can't really argue with the power of a French duchess, but claims she'll keep a spot open in case he changes his mind. He's on decent terms with her but still prefers Queen Elisabeth.
  • As a Phantom Thief, he has gotten into the good graces of other thieves in the pantheon. He became fast friends with the deity who holds that title of Phantom Thief, Ren Amamiya, alongside his group of other Phantom Thieves. Phantom R is rather interested in their work and has offered his services to them should they need it. He is also friends with Aladdin, a fellow Lovable Rogue who is a fellow thief that he can trust. However, he has the fondest connection with fellow Gentleman Thief Sly Cooper, who commented on how it was nice to finally have another thief who knows how to be polite and virtuous while committing his crimes. The fact he also has some distaste for Penelope Mouse, being reminded of Jean-Francois betraying him and Marie, also scored him some goodwill with the raccoon. He plans on joining him and Lupin on their thieving competition, whenever it happens.

He was given this position the Pantheon has problems finding a fictional version of the Trope Namer El Cid that focusing on the trope while Patroclus is famous for his embodiment of the temple.
  • His reunion with Achilles is the stuff of legend. The sound of their... celebration can be heard all through out the Pantheon.
  • His relationship with Achilles have had many fans since the ancient time, both as comrades or as lovers. Some of the more famous admirers are Plato and Alexander the Great, both of which consider them to be a shinning example of love.
    • However, Patroclus is displeased when reading William Shakespeare's depiction of Achilles and Ajax and denounce the bard from visiting his temple.
    • Because of his relationship with Achilles, Patroclus is the only one that can snap him out of a bloodthirst rage or his moments of pride because Achilles doesn't want him to die again.
  • Feels great sorrow for the story of his fellow Greek Trojan after the Trojan war like Penelope, Odysseus and Cassandra. He has been meeting up with the first two to catch up while has been praying for Cassandra to get better.
  • Dislike Full Frontal as Patroclus considers memory implant to be cheating in combat and doesn't consider him to be worthy of using his temple's power.
  • Despite Light Yagami with a passion for his action and narcissism while respect L for his intelligence. The fact that L's allies employ the power of his temple after the latter's murder by Light is just a bonus.
  • Is a good friend with Dick Grayson as the latter asked to borrow the power of his temple for his run at Batman. The Pantheon is more surprised that two didn't end up sleeping together. The House of Love theorizes that this is because all versions of Patroclus only interested in either women or Achilles.
    • While visiting Dick, Patroclus discovered that his incarnation in the DC universe was actually reincarnated as Patrick Cleese, who ends up in a relationship with DC's version of Achilles, who was revived by Zeus to try and better humanity.

    • A similar situation happened with Jeanne D'Arc because one of Patroclus's followers is her friend Liane who died after impersonating her.
  • Had an encounter with Peter Pan after the boy mistook him for Captain Hook. Even after clearing their misunderstanding, the two still not on good term to each other because of their different perspective on violence: Peter Pan consider them fun and game while Patroclus is a soldier up until his death.
  • Sophitia at first confused because she thinks her own son Patroklos has ascended to the Pantheon. After clearing the misunderstanding, the two bond over their shared experience of being soldiers.
