  • Arceus, the Original One, is believed to have been the progenitor of the Pokemon universe itself. It emerged from an egg before time and shaped reality with 1000 arms, using the Creation Trio to shape the dimensions and the Lake Trio to shape the soul. Mew, supposed genetic ancestor of all Pokemon, is unclear where it fits but most agree Arceus came first. The Alpha Pokemon is capable of taking on any type depending on the plate or Z crystal it holds, and has balanced stats across the board; all of them with a BST of 120.
  • Technically genderless, however given most creator deities are masculine Arceus has decided to identify as such in the Trope Pantheon. Mew serves as his publicist as it was a good idea when he went on a billions-year long nap. He tends to chill at the Hall of Origin and rarely comes out to meet the Pantheon Leaders, though he usually converses with Eru Illuvatar as they are both vectors for creation of their respective universes. Arceus stands far away for Hircine because he is worried his Egomaniac Hunter nature will lead him to target him.
  • Due to Arceus's strength and the fact that he rules over the entire Pokémon universe, he initially ascended as the god of Olympus Mons. Not to mention directly created the Pokémon of time, space, dimensions, and willpower, knowledge and emotions, all to carry out his will. Instead he has chosen the role of Cosmic Egg, as the Original One is always described as having emerged from an egg before the universe even existed. When asked if this makes him related to Flumpty Bumpty, Arceus responded with "he's my weirdo neighbor from back in the Primordial Chaos days, I tend to avoid him".
  • Considered the leader of Pokemon everywhere, what with being their answer to God. Not interested in worship, just respect, though he is not the strongest Pokemon thanks to Mega Evolution, Primal Reversion and Ultra Necrozma. Still, Arceus is the strongest non-transformed Pokemon. Mewtwo, designed in mind as the strongest Pokemon, has a rivalry with the Alpha Pokemon and the two regularly throw down to declare superiority. Whenever Mewtwo tries to up things with one of his Mega Evolutions, Arceus has a Spooky or Dread Plate on standby.
  • As the Alpha Pokemon, Arceus had high standards for who to pick as his partner. Ultimately he settled on Mata Nui, for being a level-headed and benevolent god. He tends to chill with supreme beings who prefer a light touch, such as Eru Illuvatar. Arceus seems to agree on Primus in terms of how he goes about his divine and heroic duties. Just so long as they don't rib on how a supreme being can become a trainer's pet; it really annoys him.
  • Doesn't really like Zeedmillenniummon that much. Nor does Arceus like YHVH, due to His ego issues driving Him to try and supplant every Top God He can. The Alpha Pokemon doesn't really care about worship anyway. And with most literal deities, Arceus considers Zamasu an insane fallen deity, while Zamasu decries the Mythical Pokemon for not getting more involved in the world of Pokemon. Arceus simply responded "because it can take care of itself 99% of the time, that's why I tend to stay neutral". Also, he thinks that Chakravartin is a total prick.
  • Stays clear of Chuggaaconroy after hearing how he was able to capture Latias and Groudon in Nest Balls and then Dialga in a Luxury Ball and both Giratina and Dialga with Heal Balls. Many gods are awaiting the day that Chuggaa decides to go after Arceus and to see which kind of Poké Ball he'll use to capture him. And then they all groaned to learn that Arceus ran away from Chuggaaconroy and thus have to wait for Chuggaa's next adventure.
  • Upon hearing about the high following of "The Great Helix", he simply laughed at how mortals can latch on to one of his minor creations as a god. He doesn't have hard feelings against it, though. He has mixed opinions of the "The Mob" after they started imagining the man behind these events ("The Streamer") looking like him with glasses. This hasn't stopped him from interacting with them, like how they summoned him in the land of Ransei with the warlord host Lady ABnp3a, which caused him to join her in order to defeat Nobunaga or how they eventually did meet up with Arceus for real (but then ran away in terror).
  • Given how Arceus emerged from a Cosmic Egg, he's uncomfortable with the Divine Powers harvesting human souls on mass to form a universe free of YHVH. While he gets why they may be motivated, the Original One doesn't think they're much better and pointed out to Khrisna Lack of Empathy, the new universe would still have serious problems for humanity despite their claims. By contrast, Arceus has a much better relationship with a fellow Cosmic Egg creator, Pangu, who's Creation Myth of "making the universe and not doing much before it" is reminiscent of Arceus'. And the two are rather chill for gods.
  • It is unwise to piss him off in any way, shape or form. Promise to return what is a materialized form of his power to him, then break that promise? He'll destroy the land it helped to restore, even in the far future. Try to make him destroy the world because you are a nihilistic sociopath? He'll ascend you to another plane of existence as a punishment. Throw sand in his eyes? He'll go Old Testament on your ass. And never talk about where his "wheel" comes from. How Cyrus avoided angering Arceus is unclear, but Arceus has warned him not to mess with cosmic powers a second time or he's coming for him. Thanks to Hareta's influence, he may no longer be a problem for the Original One.
  • Said to have been emerged in the Primordial Chaos and void of reality. Amatsu-Mikaboshi is indignant at this, as he is towards all creation, and Arceus was legitimately afraid of the Chaos King. It's rather justified for him to be afraid. The Lich was aggravated by Arceus as being one of the beings "from before there was anything, even nothing" being a force for creation and wishes to slay the Alpha Pokemon. Arceus isn't sure what to make of GOLB, though. However he is willing to accept Amara, who has gotten over her destructive and creator-hating tendencies once making up with her brother Chuck. There seems to be a nostalgic fondness for her. Arceus isn't hanging without her brother after he proved himself Evil All Along.
  • No one, not even the smartest deities in the Pantheon, has any idea how to pronounce his name, though the dub of the movie has it be pronounced as Ar-kee-us. And no-one is certain on what the equine Arceus' thousand arms are, but the common theory is that they're armaments, as the Unown. As the Unown are reality warpers, and Arceus can summon them to make another member of the Creation Trio, it's rather plausible.

  • Interested in: The House of Genetic Engineering, All Pokémon, Kryptonians, Martians, Saiyans, Namekians, Frieza's race, The Jedi and Sith Order, various SCPs
  • In the vast cosmic landscape, there is a race of beings that are older than Eternity, more feared than Galactus, more mysterious than The Watchers, and more powerful than the Gods. They are known by many names. They are the Celestials and they have arrived.
  • When the Celestials ascended, they were quick to act. Seeing a plane of existence that they had nothing to do with creating intrigued them greatly, as did the many races and beings in the Pantheon. Such beings that have caught their interest and approval are the Kryptonians, Martians, Saiyans, Namekians, Frieza's race, the various species of Pokémon, and both the Jedi and Sith Order. With the nature of the Pantheon, only more may be added to this list.
  • The Celestials are potentially the most important race in the Marvel universe. It's actually because of them that there even is a universe, or more specifically Eternity. While the involvement of the Celestial race can (literally) be found across the entire universe, none owe their existence to them more than the Mutant race. It's due to their experiments that the X-Gene exists. It's due to their technology that Apocalypse is who he is today. Something he's very much aware of and unhappy about. Apocalypse could only use it because they let him use it and he owes them for it.
  • To the surprise of others, both the Celestials and the Watchers have had a long-lasting rivalry. As both are incredibly knowledgeable and powerful, the two are some of the only beings that could potentially match one another in intelligence and ability. But due to how both parties operate differently, they don't actually "interact".
    • Another rivalry was developed between the Celestials and the Flood. Both are the precursors of their worlds, existing long before time itself, having been the ones to seed life throughout the universe, with both knowledge and power unmatched by anyone. They even have a habit of eliminating worlds and species that they don’t like. Although they have much in common, they do not however agree with the others' plans and goals.
  • When they had ascended, Kronika was one of the first to greet them. Believing that as both she and they are Above the Gods, she could form a sort of alliance. Unfortunately, due to how she tried to reset their home reality, forcing their creator The One Above All to personally move into action, all she found were a race of incredibly angry Space Gods. When she appeared before them, they didn't even bother to let her open her mouth before letting her know how they felt about her. Instead of just blasting her into oblivion, what they did was arguably much, much worse. As such, she absolutely refuses to EVER be near them again.
    • To those who wonder what they did, they placed her into a form of Lotus-Eater Machine. One where her perfect world was nearly realized. The problem? It was only nearly perfect, therefore Kronika reset the timeline to correct the mistake. Only instead of correcting the problem, it only made it worse. She reset the timeline again and again and again and again, each one becoming worse than the last. Eventually, she completely gave up and didn't even try to fix it. But the timeline reset itself regardless. It was then when Kronika realized exactly what the Celestials had done to her, nearly driving her mad. Kronika only escaped because they wanted her gone from their domain.
  • As anyone familiar with Galactus's history, it should come as no surprise that he was NOT happy with their ascension. As the ones responsible for the destruction of his home universe, and forcibly turning him into the Last of His Kind, the hate is understandable. He's at least content that he can ensure that their race doesn't expand further and overrun the universe. As Celestials lay their eggs inside planets, he devours whatever Celestial egg he finds.
    • Besides Galactus, most Marvel deities were not happy with their arrival. But regardless of how they felt, there was nothing they could do about it. Any time they've tried to battle one, they've either lost horribly or only survived due to outside interference. The only thing they could do was to warn everyone to STAY! FAR! AWAY! Odin, in particular, hates them, stemming from a time he once battled against them for the protection of the Earth. Donning the Destroyer Armor, Wielding the Odin Sword, empowered by the life force of every Asgardian (except Thor's), while also being aided by two other High Fathers. They never stood a chance. Incidentally, there is also another reason why Odin hates them, because in his youth, he battled against the Celestials with a team of Prehistoric Avengers, with him as the only survivor.
    • Many DC deities weren't happy either, seeing as they reminded them of the Omega Titans. This similarity was enough to have Brainiac consider making an alliance with the enemy factions, rightfully believing them to be too much for them to handle alone. Unfortunately, (and predictably), nobody was willing to compromise. The GUAG wasn't willing to trust them, the GUAL and GUAE were too arrogant to believe that they needed help, the GUAC didn't really care and actually wanted to see what they were capable of, and the GUAD... well that one's actually pretty obvious. Even his own team, the GUAM, wasn't certain, since the Celestials don't seem to have any interest in the Forever War in so much as furthering their understanding of the fictional Omniverse.
  • While some have heeded the warnings of Marvel deities to stay away, many have ignored them, Zamasu included. He despises them for their status as Neglectful Precursors, as it reminded him of how his fellow gods acted, as well as believing them to be responsible for the existence of the various evil and despicable beings in the Marvel Multiverse, akin to Krona. Had that not been the case, he would have been fine with them, as they tend to eliminate anything that doesn't live up to their standards. Their title also repulses him, since he refuses to believe that anything can be Above the Gods in any way, shape or form. He would eventually go to confront and challenge them. His screams were heard not long after.
  • Given their habit of eradicating entire alien species for not living up to their standards, the Doctor doesn't really have much of a high opinion on the ancient race. But he does understand that they are not ones that should be trifled with.
    • Speaking of Time Lords, due to their vast level of intelligence and power, Rassilon has viewed them as a sort of rival, not wanting to be outdone by anyone, or anything.
  • One of the few gods that were willing to actually seek them out, were the ascended Jedi and Sith deitiesnote . Believing that they may have been the very same race of Precursors of the same name. When they all went to search, they came at the same time, but before a massacre could break out, the Celestials teleported all of them into their temple. It was at this moment they all immediately understood why the ancient race was so feared. Thankfully they were all given an approval by Scathan, and left with no injury. Unfortunately, while they were uninjured, they were given a haunting vision of a Parallel Universe, were Jedi are Sith and Sith are Jedi. This had left everyone in an uncomfortable state, especially Yoda and Sidious, and they all decided to never speak of it again.
    • The only one who had any desire to learn more was Darth Vader, having seen a vision of him fully healed from his injuries, and as a Jedi once more. He went to the only being that he knew that could answer his questions, Uatu The Watcher. Uatu explained that what he saw was what the a possible future. What Vader saw and learned intrigued him, as he could not only be at full health, but more powerful than ever before. Ever since, Vader has intensified his many visits to the houses of Time and Space, Health and Diseases, Science and Technology to see how he could become the man in his vision.
  • Like anyone else, The Celestials have a very low opinion on both Barbatos and the four Chaos Gods. Their low opinion escalated to full-blown hatred after dark gods pulled a stunt that nearly destroyed all of Pantheon. Tzeentch had convinced the other Celestials into trying to amass an army of Celestials from the Dark Multiverse. As the Dark Multiverse is made up of worlds where the worst case scenarios are made into reality, this went swimmingly for everyone. They unwittingly summoned an army of Celestials that not only came from a world where they overpopulated the universe, but were also infected by The Horde. The first thing these "Dark Celestials" did was to immediately blast their summoners and run rampant in the Pantheon. It wasn't until the Living Tribunal had personally stepped in to stop the chaos did things finally calm down. This officially made the Celestials enemies to both Barbatos and the four Chaos Gods.
  • It was only a matter of time before their interest would turn towards not only the numerous SCPs. But when they did, the Foundation found an unexpected ally. The Celestials choose to stand back, observe and do nothing. But while they literally do nothing, their presence seemly keeps the more dangerous SCPs in line. Case in point, when SCP-682 made another breach in containment, it immediately took notice of a Celestial observing it from afar. SCP-682 then quietly walked back into its cell, and stayed there the remainder of the day.
  • If there's one thing that the Celestials do not tolerate under any circumstance, it's Cosmic Unbalance. If someone were to use something that would effect the Cosmic Hierarchy, like say the Infinity Gauntlet? Then prepare yourself for war. This the main reason why they don't like Thanos, because of his history with the Infinity Stones. It's also why they don't like Darkseid and his quest for the Anti-Life Equation.
    • Because of their hatred for those who would disrupt the cosmic balance, they've marked the GUAD as personal enemies. Yes, they too have destroyed the universe on a number of occasions, but that was because it was time for the universe to end. It was time for the old world to die, so that the new world could live. The GUAD wish for the destruction of all life and creation to be permanent. Since they were responsible for shaping the Marvel Multiverse, Nekron and his allies have marked them as top priority enemies.
  • One day in Pantheon, a certain Celestial encountered Ben Tennyson. Unlike other gods, Ben and his friends weren't actually very worried about them, having already defeated a number of powerful aliens. The only ones who didn't feel as confident were Azmuth, Professor Paradox, and Grandpa Max. This was until they actually encountered one, when they did the Omnitrix seemly went haywire until Ben transformed into Alien X. Instead of fighting the Celestial and Celestialsapien just stood and stared at each other, as if they were having a staring contest. When Ben transformed back, the Celestial turned around and left, only stopping to give Ben a thumbs up, to which Ben sheepishly smiled. Ben told the others what he could. One, the Celestial they encountered was the One Above All. Not the same Supreme Marvel God, but the leader of the Celestial race. Two, the One Above All hacked the Omnitrix to both scan all the alien DNA inside, and to use Ben as a form of a bridge to speak to the other Celestialsapiens. And that both the Celestial and Celestialsapien race have formed an alliance. Three, the Celestial race will be watching Ben and his progress for the proceeding future. When Kevin asked if Ben got an alien out of it, he said that Scathan wouldn't let him.
  • To the surprise of many, they were approached by none other than both the Monitor and Anti-Monitor. Having learned of the ancient race, they approached them to ask (demand in the Anti-Monitor's case) if they were somehow related to their mother Perpetua, as the race of their mother was known as the Super Celestials. Their response... was not what they were expecting. The Celestials were in a massive state of panic, only stopping when their leader, the One Above All, demanded them to. The One Above All told them that they have no relation with Perpetua or her kind, but even they know to fear her. They all agreed to form an alliance, the Celestials would stay uninvolved with the whatever conflict happened between the two brothers, but if or when Perpetua ascends, they will be there to help stop her. To further aid in the potential war against Perpetua, the Celestials are also working in bringing the third brother, Alpheus, the World Forger, into Pantheon.

His Golden Spider form 
  • Overdeity

  • Theme Songs: Aurora Borealis, One Who Spins Samsara, One Who Spins Ideas (Golden Spider)
  • Alignment: Claims he's Neutral Good. In actuality, Neutral Evil

(The Golden Spider)
  • Domains: Life, Mantra, Godhood, Creation
  • Followers: The Lifemaker, The Lord Ruler
  • Allies: Fortinbras, Father Balder, Zanza, Dartz, Lysandre, Apocalypse
  • Rivals: YHVH, Dio Brando, Virtuous

  • Enemies: Asura, Augus, Mithra, Yasha, Deus, Nekron, Melkor, Lucifer, Spawn, Ungoliant, every member of Team Dai-Gurren, Arceus, Gaea, Aleph, Ezio Auditore
  • Chakravartin is the creator and god of the world of Gaea, and the true identity of the Golden Spider. The embodiment of Samsara, he comes off as a distant if loving god, but in truth is a cold-hearted sociopath who masterminds tragedy for his benefit. He would mastermind conflict in Gaea, all for his greater purposes. Learning of the Trope Pantheon, Asura now seeks to play his many, many hands.
    • He has earned Asura's great ire for kidnapping Mithra, but they must settle their score in their own world before settling it in the Pantheon. As far as the outcome, the Pantheon consulted The Fates: the last images seen were the Brahmastra falling to Earth, and Asura and Yasha fighting one another again. "This is going to be fun", was the one comment The Golden Spider made on this subject.
    • After his defeat at the hands of Asura, he has had very little to say due to coming down with a case of acute 'Missing half of your face' syndrome.
  • For a time, Chakravartin would serve as the the Embodiment of the Wheel of Life, going by his Golden Spider form. However it wasn't considered a specific enough trope for him, and enough time had passed that everyone knew the truth about him. Chakravartin has re-instated himself as the God of Prime Movers, likely to keep an eye on others in the House of Faith.
    • Considers YHVH to be his main rival in the god department. In his own house, he sits next to Aleph, the Flying Spaghetti Monster and God. With Aleph, he's concerned he may try to kill him as he did YHVH. With the Flying Spaghetti Monster, he regards him as horribly irresponsible and a mockery to the divine. He hasn't anything to say about God, but God thinks he's undeserving of his Creator status.
  • Chakravartin believes himself to be a wise and beneficent Creator, who only causes suffering to get an heir and be free to other worlds. He's not a good god. He really isn't. He may use an Omniscient Morality License, but Asura rightly told him to shove it up his ass of which everyone agreed. Team Dai-Gurren agrees, seeing him as another selfish, ruthless monster like the Anti-Spiral. For now, Chakravartin has teamed up with the Anti-Spiral in order to counter both Asura and Spiral Power.
    • Has sought to recreate the conflict with other gods. So far, he's gotten Dartz, Lysandre and Apocalypse on his side; Dartz and Lysandre to fulfill their dreams of a better world through destruction, and Apocalypse by fanning the flames of war.
    • Zanza can get behind Chakravartin's views, as they both agree the world exists for them and feel they're better off working together. Fellow creator deity Arceus doesn't get along, as Chakravartin hoped to ensnare the weaker Alpha Pokemon for his own purposes and Arceus thinks he's a terrible god.
  • He is virtually the only known individual in the Pantheon to talk down to Melkor of all people, and does it to his face, citing that as the spinner of life in Asura's universe, and with Melkor having been created by Eru, the "Lord of the Rings" universe's God, he is above him. To quote what he said: "I am the Creator of all life in my world; you are merely a creation of your God". Melkor has apparently vowed to squash him for this "insult".
    • Given his spider form and disdain for Melkor, it would seem that Ungoliant and he would get along. However, the Animalistic Abomination could not help but try and feast on the life force he emanated, resulting in Chakravartin swatting her away. He does permit Arachne to visit his webs, possibly as some sort of scheme against the Greek gods of the pantheon.
    • Tends to distance himself from Nekron, and has been seen making a spider's web in a tree near The Entity's residence, claiming that as fellow weavers of life, he's comfortable around the White Light Entity. Nekron and the GUAD seek to despoil the lifestreams they maintain, in hopes of making the annihilation of all life an easier feat.
  • Chakravartin is the master of Mantra, cosmic energies produced by the emotions from souls and prayers. Interestingly, the eight forms of Mantra are similar to the Seven Deadly Sins. Some suspect Chakravartin may be a devil, rather than a god. He reacted, dispassionate yet clearly furious; "I am no servant of a higher being, fallen or otherwise. I am a higher being, never claim otherwise."
    • Chakravartin is in control of reincarnation in his world, however, cannot reincarnate himself and thanks to Asura killing his "mortal" body cannot survive outside the pantheon. He considers this to be... unfortunate. Has been also trying to usurp Virtuous' position as the goddess of reincarnation.
    • In his Golden Spider form, he rules Naraka; an afterlife realm with an endless number of pillars. Often will associate with the House of Life and Death because of this.
  • Like most Creator Deities, The Golden Spider remains silent on the subject of YHVH. While he claims his form is simply an efficient guise, the explanation is at odds with his requiring Mithra's body as a temporary vessel and the small fact that YHVH's upper-tier Angels have started carrying golden flyswatters.
    • Is amused by "The God of Light" Fortinbras and decided to work alongside this Creator God for the moment as a means to further his own plans.
    • Knows what lurks in Balder and through that connection has gained angels to work alongside The Golden Spider.
  • As one of the most powerful entities in the Pantheon, Chakravartin has interest in other Overdeities. Lucifer has nothing but disdain towards him, seeing the Creator as similar to YHVH. Gaea, in particular, has a personal vendetta towards him for being the mastermind behind Gohma Vlitra, whom she regards as a parasite trying to usurp her being.
    • May have picked his time-freezing powers from Dio Brando. Dio Brando considers him a possible rival in that field and may seek to usurp his power one day.
    • Though Chakravartin may best Beerus in combat, he prefers not to provoke him. His experiences with Asura has made him wary of destruction deities, and he doesn't have a reason to antagonize the Overdeity.

    Eru Ilúvatar 
Eru Ilúvatar, God of Creation (God of Arda, Creator, The One, The All High, The Father Of All)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eru_iluvatar_8622.jpg
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: The Flame Imperishable.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: God of Arda, God Among The Ainur, Creating Life, Complete Immortality, Light Is Good, Death Is A Gift, Divine Delegation, Source Of Goodness, The Only Way They Will Learn
  • Domains: Creation, Fantasy, Spirituality, Wisdom, Life
  • Superior: J. R. R. Tolkien

  • Allies: Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, The Emperor of Mankind, Primus, God (God, The Devil and Bob), Mata Nui, The Life Entity, Aslan, Cosmos, Manwë Sulimo, Gandalf, The One Above All
  • On good terms with: The House of Music, most creator deities
  • Opposes: Sauron, Nurgle, Chakravartin, Alduin
  • Opposed by: Melkor, YHVH, Nekron
  • All things have a beginning, all things have a source. And for those of Middle-Earth, this source is Eru Ilúvatar. Timeless and transcendent, he would bring the spark of life to the Ainur, and create the world of Arda. Though more of an indirect God, he would still guide his creation and be the source of all that is good within it. Together with Dream and Haruhi Suzumiya, and with the behest of the Progenitor's designs, he guides and crafts the Trope Pantheon.
    • Many believe Eru created everything. EVERYTHING. Including other Gods in the Pantheon, hence making him the actual big cheese. When asked why he's not ruling the whole show then, most followers of this theory shrug and say "he doesn't want to".
  • Eru is the source of all creation in Arda, the creator of the Ainur and Valar as well. This act of creation is expressed in the form of music, which has led some to believe he played a direct role in creating the House of Music. He doesn't always create things directly and often lets his creations do some of the work. It's believed that he brought the Life Entity into existence, with the help of The Presence, and while this hasn't been proven it seems to regard him as a parental figure.
    • Being the main God of Creation, he is held in reverence by all other Good-aligned deities in fiction. Every time a new universe comes into being, he gives it his own divine spark. However, he rarely intervenes in the conflict between good and evil.
  • Was pleased to see that the Ainur Manwë and Gandalf had entered the pantheon.
  • Will often consult with other creator deities and god figures in the Pantheon. Most get along well, but a few evil gods have gotten some friction with him; YHVH especially can't stand the fact that Eru is part of the Holy Trinity and not him, but has to tolerate it. He doesn't like Chakravartin that much due to how amoral he is and abusing the Omniscient Morality License. Would probably have done something about it had Asura not taken him out.
    • Often mistaken for being God of God, the Devil and Bob, much like how people have mistaken Melkor for Satan or Lucifer. They're different entities who have different methods of helping out their creations, but both are really nice Gods. Sometimes they argue about how to better do their job, but it's very rare and always a respectful debate.
  • Some have suggested that Eru is actually True Neutral considering that Melkor is a reflection of his thoughts. They have cited the destruction of Númenor as evidence of this, considering that many innocent people have likely died. However, Eru has always claimed to love all of his spiritual children. Even his adopted spiritual ones. And he allows free will, hence the existence of evil. Manwë's ascension was likely part of his gambit in helping out the GUAG.
  • Has not spoken on what Ungoliant is exactly, or has proven/disproven the belief that the Spider of Night comes from the Void rather than him. Conversely, the Lich, Orgalorg and Amatsu-Mikaboshi aren't speaking on where they stand on the issue of Ilúvatar.
    • Also hasn't expressed his views on the GUAC and Lucifer. Lucifer is ambivalent towards him, as he respects free will and seems like a nice guy.
  • Though he allows death for his creations, this is not a curse or punishment. Rather, death is a blessing. Naturally, he's not a fan of those that pervert the gift of both death and life, making it a terrible thing. Personally regards Nurgle as an offense against life itself. He may have been responsible for Aza'Gorod being kicked out of the Pantheon due to making death something to be feared.
  • Trying to get the GUAG to deal with the newly found Grand United Alliance of Destruction, headed by Nekron. Nekron does not like Eru, believing him to be responsible for the coming of the light and life in the first place. He can't do much about Eru, however, due to the rules set by the Court of the Gods, as well as being way out-matched and being near his presence burning him.
  • It is suspected that he uses his power to aid Michael Carpenter in his crusade against the GUAE, and this is why Michael tends to show up exactly when he is needed, and to touch him (or in some cases, even get near him) is painful to all evil.
  • Melkor believed he could use the infamous Black Book of Arda to finally discredit Eru, but Eru got the last laugh, saying that he actually enjoyed reading the book and considered it a fine comedy. Outraged at being outsmarted yet again by his father, Melkor was forced to retreat.

Oh, you've come to learn about me, then. The Mad God? A bit redundant because in a way, you already have. I am that fault on the surface of your mind, the faint voice dwelling- oh just read the bloody thing already. It's not like you do much else, anyways. Quite sad, really.

  • They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results. It, of course, can, in a way, be attributed to the Daedric Prince of Insanity himself. See, in his realm, Shivering Isles there exists a prophecy known as the Greymarch where once every era the Daedric Prince of Order, Jyggalag, and his Forces of Order come and destroy everything before Sheogorath comes in to rebuild it all over again. The kicker here is that Sheogorath is Jyggalag, having been transformed by his fellow Daedric Princes in fear of his growing power. Justifiable, as one example of this included a library that, through deductive reasoning alone, was said to know everythingnote . This, however, is no longer the case as the Greymarch was eventually broken thanks to efforts of a mortal who mantled Sheogorath and defeated Jyggalag. Their identity? None other than the Champion of Cyrodiil. Over time, they grew to the position although those perceptive would realize there are some inklings of their original personality in there beneath that madness. Apparently mantling the Mad God isn't anything new.
    "It's a family title. Gets passed down from me to myself every few thousand years."
  • The Mad God came into the Pantheon one day by following his fellow Daedric Princes Hermaeus Mora and Hircine. Though originally he did so carrying Mephala's Ebony Blade cheerily claiming that she had misplaced it and was going to take it back for "safe keeping"read . But after giving it away to some schmuck in the House of Betrayal (and predictably causing some chaos there in the process) he found the Trope Pantheon to be a very nice vacation spot (more than Emperor Pelagius III's mind, especially since he's cured now) and decided to set up permanent residence here should he leave the Shivering Isles. Haskill came in to support his case, or more accurately reign in the insanity and directly inform the Court of Gods of his Lord's demands.
    • In the end, the Court allowed him in. Not because of the contemporary consequences (valid as they are) but they have looked over the mantle of Sheogorath and found an ideal title for the Daedric Prince to take. His fellow Daedric Princes don't seem all that pleased with the news though continued on with their business with Hircine grumbling of a time where he lost his champion to a songbird. Knowing the complicated affairs in Oblivion, there's probably way more to his relationships with his fellow Princes. Although, the Champion of Cyrodiil releasing someone whom they viewed as a threat for all of them to work together against may not have helped things in the slightest.
  • Has a bunch of artifacts associated with him. For example, the Fork of Horripilation is a cursed dinner fork that stunts the magic of the wielder. There's also Folium Discognitum, a book of knowledge not unlike Hermaeus Mora's Oghma Infinium, save for the fact it is written and reads like a madman. But his most famous artifact is the Wabbajack, a Magic Staff that is unpredictable as Sheogorath himself. Helpful or harmful or useless, it's all the same. Wabbajack. Wabbajack. Wabbajack. Not exactly as a reliable artifact as his others, though it's the most well known for a reason. For cats can be bats can be rats can be hats can be gnats can be thats can be thises. And doors can be boars can be snores can be floors can be roars can be spores can be yours can be mine. Nonetheless it is very amusing to use. Wabbajack. Wabbajack. Wabbajack!
    • Wario saw the Wabbajack as another get-rich-quick scheme, thinking he could change whatever he wanted to gold, and attempted to steal it, but when he did all he was able to do with it was briefly turn some furniture into sweet rolls, cats, pumpkins, and even a Spriggan at one point. When Sheogorath caught him he stole back the Wabbajack and turned Wario's head into a clam, but found that Wario seemed to shrug off the magic and acted as if nothing had happened to him despite having a clam for a head for the rest of the afternoon.
      "Well now. This makes things infinitely more interesting."
      • Since then Wario hates Sheogorath now because, because he seems immune to anything that would otherwise be fatal to a normal mortal the Prince encounters, Sheogorath loves to transform him into all sorts of things when he's feeling sad. Or happy. Or bored. Or angry. Anything really, the many different forms Wario takes is just that interesting to the Mad God.
  • Wario isn't the only person he consistently toys around with as the Gamers! crew, the Question, and the Adoring Fan are also targets to his whims. Though the former two have relatively harmless pranks done on them so far, be it getting the crew to overreact and escalate the situation either by telling truths and lies to them or spouting rabbit-hole theories which require an extensive amount of evidence to validate. The Adoring Fan's pranks seem a lot less harmless, often ending in him getting gravely injured in some form or another and he honestly doesn't know what did he do to the Daedric Prince to warrant such wrath.
    • The Daedric Prince appeared to the feminist-hating conspiracy theorist was through his dreams, sympathizing with his plight and promised to help him out under the condition that he gather certain items to take to a shrine of his to not only earn his favor but also help in his fight. Kenji agreed and though the journey was harrowing as the items included things such as blades of grass from the House of Technology or a cloud's tears (which is not rain, apparently). While on his way back from the aforementioned "tears" he sensed a feeling that he was being followed. Instinctively he took to the nearest tree hole which turned out to be considerably deeper than he thought. As the light hit Kenji's eyes he found he was in some sort of room with the same figure who turned out to be... Haskill.
      • Disgruntled that he was forced to chase down Kenji, he explained that came to congratulate him for fulfilling his Lord's tasks and that he was going to take him to a celebration, males only of course. And Kenji soon took off to the next door and found the party and whatever details came after that remains unclear, only that the next time people saw Kenji he was a gibbering, murmuring wreck next to a Shrine of Sheogorath.
  • Some deities noticed in that the previous appearances of Sheograth there is some vocal contrast. In a time when Morrowind was threatened by the Blight he sounded quite like a calm gentleman and there were some reports that he also had a more sinister hiss of a voice during the Oblivion Crisis up until he personally invites the Champion of Cyrodiil to the Shivering Isles. While the former can be chalked up to Haskill mantling Sheogorath, the latter has no such explanation. Knowing Sheogorath, it's likely for amusement.
  • Has a positive connection to the Houses of Music and Craft for bringing music to mortals and his overall association with creativity and makes it a routine to visit the Houses if he can. Creativity and madness can go hand in hand, after all. On their end, while the two Houses are flattered they're still overall cautious of him given that in one legend he managed to give mortals music by tearing apart a random woman to make the instruments when she commented on the beauty of songbirds. In another, he cursed a city so that all children born be born from then on after hearing their pleas that their king banned any and all forms of creativity. This ended with the king's own son committing patricide where he later died as he incidentally made it so that his own quarters was his own tomb out of paranoia... not that the people mind, for they were free to be mad and continued to act as though still had a ruler.
    • The only musician in the Pantheon he bonds really well with would be Weird Al. Sheogorath admires the zaniness of his music but is particularity — and rather unsurprisingly — fond of the song "The Night Santa Went Crazy". Weird Al introduced Sheogorath to the accordion and he's been hooked ever since, playing joyous songs on it at whether he can. Unfortunately for everyone else in his vicinity Sheogorath is terrible at playing it. Though none suffer more than his dear Chamberlain Haskill — who being the Cloudcuckoolander's Minder that is — has to put up with such dreadful cacophonies. Purposefully dreadful cacophonies, if he is to be believed. It wouldn't be out of character for Sheogorath to do things just to be annoying.
    • Sheorgorath is also connected to is the House of Insanity (no elaboration needed as to why). When it comes to its guardians, the reactions are mixed. Alexander Rovias wants nothing to do with him given her own issues (especially when it comes to Eldritch Abominations), at least on good terms with Delirium even with her sporadic mood, and he surprisingly leaves Ice King alone at least when it comes to Simon Petriokov. And even then, his jokes tend to be on the more tame side of things with Ice King. and the House of Mentalism and can be seen hanging around the Trickery section of the House, mainly for inspiration for how he can drive the next person to blessed instability. He's quite fond of Mr. Mxyzptlk's shtick for that matter and was grateful when he introduced Xingo to him. Sheogorath tried including Q into their schemes but apparently, even he got tired with the Daedric Prince. Through them, he managed to hear the word of the three trolling groups in the Pantheon; Lol Ranger, Trollkaiger, and the Itazura Griefers. The Mad Lord sees them all as rivals to his craft.
      • One would think he'd also be good pals with Calypso. After all, they're both insane beings with near-limitless magic at their disposal, but Sheogorath actually isn't too fond of the guy. Sheogorath told Calypso once that he felt Calypso got his sick kicks way too easily and his way of having "fun" vastly differed from his own. "Too simple, too predictable, not twisting the Monkey's Paw enough. Mostly only giving it a wee little handshake". Calypso, being himself, didn't take too kindly to Sheogorath's criticism, especially when the Daedric Prince offered to run his Twisted Metal competition for a while until Calypso could get a better imagination, apparently offering to send him on a long quest in the Shivering Isles to "get his mojo back", and has since wanted nothing to do with the Mad God.
    • Lastly is House of Food for his association with cheese and... somehow embodiment of it. He would have liked another trope about cheese to go with his existing title, something Monterey Jack stood in the way of. People got weary when news broke out and even Monterey Jack was cautious after hearing one of Sheogorath's monikers as the Skooma Cat, though the Daedric Prince just handwaived it off as something no one should worry about. No one's fooled by this and the House of Meals are anxious, paranoid even.
      • On the topic of cheese he heard of fairly known cheese-lovers in the Pantheon: Charlotte the Dessert Witch and Nagisa Momoe. Though, in Charlotte's case, Sheogorath already knew her from Haskill after she came into the Shivering Isles and ate some of its denizens while he was away. Still quite vexed about that, he walked up to the witch, cast some spell on her, and told Charlotte to "enjoy the view". Charlotte then woke up in the House of Life and Death, having told by Nagisa that Sheogorath teleported far above the House to fall to her death with her only cushioning being an X made up of Camembert. The two don't hold the Daedric Prince in high regard since then.
  • Being a Daedric Prince would have already made Sheogorath enemies with the Grand United Alliance of Law. But with his spheres being creativity and madness he quickly shot up as the worst out of all the ascended Princes to them and wish to destroy the Shivering Isles, much like Jyggalag. Predictably Sheogorath returns such special enmity, the similarities to Jyggalag is not lost to him as Sheogorath finds them as about as fulfilling and inspired as stale bread.
    "You lot are all such bores. How can you live with yourselves? Oh, you go on and on about order and structure it's all so, so, so boring! Reminds me of listening to Mora sloooowly drone on, but at least that crab-slug of a bookworm keeps things interesting. You? I reckon you'd make an ice-wraith cry hail from dejection just by being around you."
  • Once met with the Dovahkiin during his vacation in the mind of the aforementioned long-dead Emperor Pelagius Septim III, though they didn't expect to run into the Prince as they only wanted to help out a man whose master wouldn't leave. To their suprise, he was pretty easy to convince to leave with the only that condition that they use the Wabbajack to help cure Pelagius of his madness. Pretty benevolent in contrast to, say, tricking the Daedric Prince Malacath into killing his own son as revenge for killing another orc and damning him to the Shivering Isles, said son doing so with a sword that Sheogorath gave to him in the first place that predictably drove him mad.
  • If you really haven't gotten it by now messing with Sheogorath is a terrible idea, as Punishment Point can clearly attest to. Matter of fact, messing with any of the Daedric Princes is ill-advised but with his approachable personality, people lacking in good judgement tend to forget that. His victories either stem from trickery, such as with Hircine and Malacath, or in the case with Vaermina and Ravate, simply doing nothing.
  • Once he and Haskill participated in a lore video about himself after having turned the narrator (who was apparently a follower to the Prince of Madness) into cheese.
Well that's just about everything you have to know me that your puny little mind can stuff in. But enough about me. What about you?
...
Oh, was that it? Did you just come all this way to meet a Daedric Prince... just to ask questions and leave? No requests, no offerings or tribute, not even a plead for some epic merry quest to give you? *yawns* A bit despondent, don't you think? Yet... it's also quite mad. Oh well. I grow tired of this conversation. Go on. Get out already unless you want me to turn you into a rock. Or maybe a book... about my favorite color.

    Ugo 
Uraltugo Noi Nueph, Manager of Divine Ranks (Ugo)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ugo.GIF
  • Overdeity (has power over the ranking system)
  • Symbol: Rukh
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Divine Ranks, The Archmage, Beware the Nice Ones, Imagination-Based Superpower, Older Than They Look, Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality, Top God
  • Domains: The Divine Ranks, Magic
  • Allies: Aladdin the Magi, Eru Ilúvatar, The One Above All, Aladdin the Thief, The Genie, Madoka Kaname
  • Enemies: Ren Gyokuen, Melkor, Jafar, Zamasu
  • Respects: The Truth
  • The Main House's (now defunct) Holy Trinity appointed Ugo to the newly-created position of "Manager of Divine Ranks" after learning he was able to exchange the hierarchy of Gods in his own Universe, and decided he was a perfect fit for regulating the ranks of entities in the Pantheon. Ugo very happily agreed with the decision, because now he had a whole range of new people he could make friends with. He is also employed in the Court of the Gods.
    • Extra care has been taken by the Progenitors to ensure that Ugo's knowledge of how to switch places in the divine hierarchy does not spread to other Gods, for fear that evil-aligned Gods may use it to give themselves more power in the Pantheon, as David was able to accomplish in Ugo's world. However, Tzeentch may already know...
  • Ugo has garnered the ire of a number of evil deities, both because Ugo was able to do what so many of them failed to do (usurp their Universes's gods and become Gods themselves), and because of the apparent hypocrisy in Ugo's treatment compared to them. It is believed that Ren Gyokuen/Arba was the one who first started the complaints.
  • Ugo holds great respect for The Truth as a guardian of the Gate of Truth, and the purveyor of justice and karma. The Truth may have had a guiding hand in David and Sinbad usurping the Sacred Palace from Ugo, but the implication is that David is the one The Truth wanted to be punished. The Truth may be the only other being outside of the Holy Trinity with whom Ugo's knowledge was shared.
  • Ugo was also very happy and surprised to meet Aladdin in the Pantheon, and the two frequently talk about the other characters and worlds as Aladdin shows Ugo around the Pantheon. Aladdin is also helping Ugo readjust to being outside of the Sacred Palace, since being in there for 1x10^51 years made him a little insane, and making sure that no evil deities try to trick him into doing something by projecting an illusion of Solomon. Aizen Sousuke, in particular, is high on the list of people to keep Ugo away from.
  • Unlike Aladdin, Ugo is completely frightened of well-developed female physiques, much to the humor of some Goddesses, but also makes many Gods wonder where on earth Aladdin got it from, since Ugo was the one who raised Aladdin.
  • Ugo's expertise in magic is considered to be unparalleled in his home Universe, enough so that it was his mastery of magic that created the Djinn, the Universe in which Aladdin and his friends live in, and the source of his ability to re-order the divine hierarchy.
    • He heard about the plight of Madoka Kaname shortly after arriving in the Pantheon, and he has promised to help Madoka in any way he can.
  • Zamasu was... not happy to hear of Ugo's exploits after the latter ascended to the Pantheon, and immediately went on a rampage against Ugo to destroy the NINGEN!!!. Ugo quickly over-powered Zamasu and put him in a fish-tank, and the latter was only released on the instruction of the Main House after he had calmed down.

  • Domains: Titans, Time, Manipulation, the Harvest, Abuse, Paranoia,
  • Followers: His brothers Hyperion, Crius, Coeus and Iapetus
  • Special relationship with: Gaea (his mother), Tartarus (his uncle/step-father)
  • Allies: Typhon (his half-brother), The Divine Powers, Set
  • On good terms with: Scar, Relius Clover
  • On speaking terms with: The House of Plants
  • Enemies: All his descendants, but especially ZEUS (youngest son), Hestia (oldest child), Percy Jackson and Kratos (his grandchildren) and Annabeth Chase (his great-granddaughter). Also an enemy to Diana/Wonder Woman, YHVH, Cersei Lannister, Nicholas St North, Eren Yaegar, Mikasa Ackerman, and especially his father Ouranos
  • Opposes: The House of Prophecy
  • Opposed by: Anyone with an abusive father, Osiris
  • Not to be confused with: Chronos (his uncle)
  • Before Zeus ruled, his father Cronus was the king of the gods. The youngest and strongest of the Titans, he ruled the first age of man, Golden Age. However, he feared the prophecy that one day his children would overthrow him. Whenever his wife Rhea gave birth, he would swallow the infants and imprison them in his belly. Only through a trick was the last child, Zeus. Eventually, Zeus would grow up and confront his father, rescuing his siblings and usurping him.
  • Cronus also served as the god of the harvest, a role that his daughter Demeter would inherit. Because of this he often visits the House of Plants, often just doing his old job. He is also seeking a partnership with Mordremoth to help his cause. Cronus is also seen as the god of time and seems interested in the House of Time and Space, but this wasn't the case in the original mythology. It comes down to being mistaken for his uncle Chronos, the primordial god of time.
  • Was ascended by Melkor, who saw the Titan King as a useful pawn in his plans and thus gathered some of his scattered essence to reassemble him. However, no sooner was the Titan resurrected than he proclaimed that he was no servant of the Gods and destroyed much of the GUAE headquarters, after which he claimed the temple for the God of Archnemesis Fathers for his own.
    • When other gods protested, Cronus reminded them that he tops all other Archnemesis Dads due to devouring his own children the moment they were born. This quickly silenced any opposition, and Cronus ascended unopposed.
  • Though a horrible father, Cronus didn't have the best role model growing up. His own father Ouranos/Uranus, the cosmic embodiment of the sky, hated his children and imprisoned the Titans within Gaea. As the bravest and most ambitious Titan, she gave him a flint sickle to catch his father by surprise and castrate him, the severed organs eventually forming Aphrodite. The prophecy originates from his father's last words to him.
  • For his followers, Cronus has chosen his fellow Titans who helped him overcome their father; Hyperion, Crius, Coeus and Iapetus. Hyperion is the Titan of light and the father of the sun and moon Greek deities, Crius was the Titan of constellations, Coeus was the Titan of oracles and Iapetus is the father of Prometheus. Sometimes the Titan of the seas, Oceanus, is depicted as his ally. This is inaccurate to the original myths, where Oceanus was neutral in the conflict between the Titans and the Olympians.
  • Osiris stays far away from Cronus. This is less due to his villainy as Cronus is neutral on the Egyptian pantheon, but because the whole "castrating Uranus" thing causes him to wince since he was castrated with a sickle, just like him. Set seemed amused by this and felt he might serve an ally due to being a displaced god with an axe to grind. Cronus agreed, but only for the time being.
  • Interestingly, while Set was a more positive deity who was demonized, Cronus was a negative Titan who later on the Ancient Romans gave a more positive spin, adapting him into Saturn. He even had a holiday called Saturnalia, a precursor to Christmas. One of his more pettier plans is to take back the December holidays for himself, putting him into conflict with Nicholas St North. He has been working with the Divine Powers as a fellow old god, to restore his power. He's contemptuous toward YHVH due to his overthrowing of gods being a painful reminder of the fall of the Titans, though the Great Will is worse about it than Zeus.
  • For general affairs, Cronus typically takes the form of a middle-aged man in a fancy suit or a 9-foot tall, golden-eyed black-haired and goateed man in a toga. However, if utterly pissed off, he can easily become a 1600-foot-tall giant with a titanic temple chained to his back. Due to his mutilation he tends to use host bodies, or put his broken pieces back into a monstrous, demonic-looking goliath as seen in Sea of Monsters.
  • Soon after Cronus's ascension, the GUAG was told of what the Titan was capable of by Percy Jackson, and so collected Kronos's remaining essence, locked it in a sarcophagus and put it in the Maximum Security section of the Vault. This has annoyed the Titan to no end, and he is determined to find the sarcophagus and regain his full power.
  • Despite his villainy he loves Gaea, though she is more conflicted about him due to turning out a lot like his own dad and the fact she helped protect Zeus. She's more mad about what happened to most of his siblings as well. He attacked Kratos because he believed he killed her(which he later did), all while having the gall to call him a coward who kills his own kin as the Ghost of Sparta killed him. He was at least amused to know his own son would suffer the same fate as both himself and his own father.
  • Stays clear of the House of Prophecy like the plague. This is due to prophecies biting him in the ass with the whole "your son will overthrow you", but everyone agrees he brought it on himself. He shares this paranoia about prophecies with Cersei Lannister, however it's other way around as the death of her children made her paranoid. She really doesn't take kindly to how he ate his children compared to her love of her own.
  • His eldest son is a well-known philanderer, but Cronus has dabbled in some of his son's behavior. He ended up having an affair with the nymph Philyra, who he turned into a horse so his wife didn't catch him. Because of this she gave birth to the centaur Chiron, the only one of his kids he didn't try to eat. He hasn't used any of his tricks in the House of Love yet, likely because Zeus probably castrated him.
  • Would like to remind the pantheon that his Titans have nothing to do with the anime Titans. "Titan" was a title from his father meaning "straining gods", those Titans have more in common with the giants born from Uranus' blood. He is still hated by Eren Yaegar and Mikasa Ackerman however, given his cannibalism.
  • Also in Consumption.

  • Enemies: YHVH, Lucifer, Satan, Angels in general, The Old Gods, All Seven of the Grand United Alliances and every Mythological deity under those alliances, Thor, Guts, Asura, Flynn (when not taken hostage and left comatose), Guthix, Nanashi and Dagda, Amaterasu, Merged Zamasu, Griffith, The God Hand
  • Unwitting Pawns: Yuma Tsukumo, Beat, The Emotions, the Chaos Gods, No Face
  • Opposed By: Enrico Pucci, Funny Valentine, Humanity and Human ascended deities in general
  • The Divine Powers, a cabal of ancient gods who were overthrown by YHVH in the previous universe and the one in ancient times, formerly worked separately to lead their pantheons against the tyranny of the Hebrew God. Eventually the gods began to work together in the shadows, uniting under the avatar of Vishnu: Krishna, along with the Bodhisattva Maitreya, and the leader of the Aesir Odin. He had been sealed inside the Ark in ancient times for his crimes against the world in his attempt to overthrow YHVH, leading him to be imprisoned in the well of Kanda-no-Yashiro. He was freed through the machinations of Odin, who then quickly worked to capture their Godslayer, the Kalki Flynn, and began to collect the souls of humanity through Vishnu's dragon Shesha to fuel a new universe where the Old Gods would once again reign at the top and share the souls amongst humanity equally amongst them. No matter how the souls are used, they will enter a cycle of reincarnation via a Great Singularity that will unite the souls in death and redistribute them. Their plans ultimately fell through, the Powers were slain, Shesha either used or dead, and Krishna sealed once again in the Ark.
    • The Powers would not let this be the end of their cause, however. Thanks to mystical forces in the Pantheon interacting with Norse deities, Odin was able to restore himself using their Observation. Taking this chance as an opportunity, he sought allies in the Pantheon in order to prepare for the release of Krishna, though that was difficult since (aside from YHVH being a main player here) there was already an Odin in the Pantheon, so he had to act fast before the present Odin decided he was to be removed before he could do anything. Eventually, he spun a fabricated tale, deceiving the gullible Yuma and Beat by having them go unseal the Ark, which found itself somewhere in the Dominions. With defenses being prioritized on personal needs in the war effort as well as the Yamato Perpetual Reactor, Kanda-no-yashiro was left with defenses easily neutralized by Odin before the three entered the Ark, freeing Krishna in the watery pit beneath it. Fortunately for the Powers, none of the deities bar Satan had seemingly suspected a thing.
    • Restored to glory, but aware of YHVH and the other Top Gods in the Pantheon, Krishna discreetly called out to the other members of the Divine Powers to once again stand together and make a new universe free of YHVH. Maitreya was restored through the House of FAITH, using the faith for Christian Salvation to return and bring Enlightenment to all. Krishna called from the earth the serpent of Death and Renewal, Shesha, to serve as their permanent new base and gather the souls of humanity. The Divine Powers have ascended, and they won't stop until they have brought Salvation to all of humanity.
  • Inanna was the most difficult of the group to return, requiring the limitless Aether born of human emotion to restore her, even though there was enough Observation for her to maintain a physical form. Because they needed her, the Powers took The Emotions and No Face captive via Shesha swallowing them before anyone could react (and thus alert the entire Pantheon of their existence), turning the five emotions into a conduit that channel the power of the Chaos Gods and forcing them into No Face. The massive amounts of chaotic emotions horribly transformed No Face until he collected enough Aether to restore Inanna to her full power. The Powers then cut off the link, keeping the six captive until they could properly remove and use all the Aether stored within the six. With Inanna restored, she proceeded to birth an endless number of heralds to act as the groups' army.
  • Maitreya, seeking fellow deities with connections to Buddhism and the ancient powers, took captive Asura's daughter Mithra. Having Maitreya hold her by the neck, while lesser members held No Face and the Emotions as hostages, Krishna forced Flynn to once again be his Kalki. With reluctance, Flynn once again dropped his weapons and allowed Odin to take him out via several Zionga, with the Aether now removed from them No Face and the Emotions were discarded. This has earned the attention of Flynn's allies and Asura, earning their enmity. Asura, filled with rage, sought them out over Mithra's earlier abduction, but Shesha snatched them away to parts unknown before he could. Asura will never forgive them for their actions and he would've chased them down to the ends of the universe, but his allies (especially Yasha) calmed him enough to see reason; since Shesha can go anywhere in an instant, Asura would just be chasing ghosts if he did that.
  • Odin meanwhile had traveled around, talking with fellow cruel and evil gods with the guise of his Crow Familiar and an old man. Odin managed to convince Gods who seek to be in control that in the new universe they seek to make free of the old one they have more of a chance at power, with free humans that will always be handed out and will never run dry thanks to the Great Singularity Krishna shall become. Zeus, Hades, Zanza, Chakravartin, and even demons or aliens like Jedah Dohma and Black Doom have been tempted by this offer. Set for his part cares not for this new universe, but that it will not so much destroy the old one as overwrite it, which fits enough into his own goals to make him a personal ally against YHVH for slighting him in the past.
    • Although alien in morality with a strong desire to procreate and have new children with humanity, Odin conveyed the goals of a new world where the Great Ones can do just that with humanity in the universe they seek to make as "All humans shall be shared equally among all Gods". The Great Ones understand the more selfless part of their goal, but do not see the vast selfishness that fuels it beneath. He then appeared before and spoke sweet words to Warboss Ghazhgskull Mag Uruk Thraka after showing the Warboss his own strength in a battle, telling him the Powers will help him achieve the greatest WAAAAAGH! that will ever be achieved once the Divine Egg has been given form. Ghazhgskull was impressed with his skills, and liked how they offered him the lowest members of their Buddhist Heralds, the Pretas, to be replacements for the "bana wavas". Once his forces had left the battlefield covered in souls to gather, the Powers plan to betray him afterwards, using the Pretas to spread espionage and betrayal amongst the Orc forces.
  • The Prinnies really prefer working for the Powers, as they give them even more benefits and profit than even Valvatorez. The fact that they have allowed a number of them to reside in Shesha away from the likes of Ghazhgskull also helps. What they don't know is that once the Cosmic Egg has collected the required human souls, as human souls themselves they will then be absorbed into the egg.
  • Guthix personally dislikes the Powers as a whole, especially Krishna, for he seeks to make humanity completely dependent on them in the new universe. The fact that he plans to be part of his own Great Singularity with them in the afterlife before the souls return to life. He hopes to one day be in reach of the Powers in order to neutralize their abilities long enough to meet their end.
  • Shesha both mocks and hates the dragon slayers in the pantheon for potentially being able to kill him. Even if his death results in him being revived later more powerful than ever, Shesha dislikes the feeling of death. The Pendragons especially for being wielders of Excalibur(Ame-No-Habakiri) a Blade capable of great harm to him, while the Dovahkiin seeks to see if he can stop the resurrection by taking the soul should he ever fall before him. He always leaves an ominous warning after each battle:
    Shesha:"Next time I see you…I'll KILL YOU!"
  • Maitreya spouts a very nihilistic version of Buddhism, combining the Light of Dharma and his own belief humans are too ignorant and stupid to guide themselves after visiting 5,700,600,000 worlds. He preaches it to all who will hear, and with their hostage Mithra's powers and name connected to the same origin in name as his own, can briefly become Mitra-Buddha to regain his true nature as a Buddha until the new universe is made and he can truly be Maitreya-Buddha. Yuu and the Da'at Cult are one group who have listened and allied with the Powers to see the enlightenment he speaks of. Several of his fellow Buddhist figures such as the Saint Virgo Shakka and Byakuren see his Buddhist teachings as too self-righteous and self-destructive, making humans more dependent on Gods than anything. Though they have seen that trying to protest his beliefs results in his Self-Righteous Vows empowering him rather than dissuading him from this perverted path.
  • Inanna is the most distant of the group, having secluded herself to give birth to children. Unlike the others she has solely joined to protect her desire to have children, but is overbearing to all her children due to her fear of losing her power and thus parts of her identity, which happened in the past when she gave birth to her daughter-sister, the mother of the Tuatha De, Danu. She feels a kinship with Shub-Niggurath as a result of their natures as fertile mothers, but due to their conflicting alliances the two have been unable to interact much. Inanna has offered a place in the Powers should Lucifer fall, knowing that the fellow mother will not steal her power and motherhood from her, and together they can stand against YHVH and any who would try to stop them from being themselves.
  • The entire group despises Merged Zamasu as his plans to become the sole god rings too close to home, and it doesn't help that Zamasu is completely incapable of seeing anyone but himself as a God. Along with being the cause of wiping out an entire timeline of souls, Zamasu's holocaust made it harder for The Divine Powers to create a new universe.
    • Indeed, when they tried for a repeat performance, they were found out and confronted. Despite a massive show of force and even managing to capture and brainwash Flynn, the many enemies they made across the Pantheon tore their plans apart. While they are slowly regenerating their power, Krishna was once again forced into the Ark, this time under much tighter security. He can briefly move around, but the bulk of his power is within the Ark, forcing him to rely on the other Powers.
    • They were all heavily criticized by every military god. Their plan was audacious and clever... but crossing such a horizon that even the diametric opposites of Law and Chaos decided to actually stop fighting and join in alliance to destroy them was seen as a plainly stupid idea.

    The Four Holy Beasts 
Qinglongmon, Zhuqiaomon, Baihumon and Xuanwumon, The Four Gods (Digimon Sovereigns; The Harmonious Ones; Qinglongmon: Azulongmon; Zhuqiaomon: Sutsemon; Xuanwumon: Ebonwumon; Huanglongmon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fourbeastsgroup.jpg
Clockwise from top: Xuanwumon, Qinglongmon, Zhuqiaomon, Baihumon
  • Greater Gods
  • Symbol: A compass rose with the four signaling their respective directions
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Digimon versions of the four cardinal gods of East Asia, physical gods who rarely do anything, protectors of the Digital World, really big monsters, having four eyes
  • Domains: Divinity, The Internet, Mons, Cardinal Directions
  • Superior: Norn Mikihara
  • Allies: Eight Digidestined, 02 Digidestined, GUAG White Hats, Arceus, Shin Megami Tensei heroes, the Bladebreakers
  • Enemies: Evil Digimon deities, especially Lucemon, Master Control Program, Clu, Grand United Alliance of Machines, YHVH
  • The Four Holy Beasts are four Mega-level Digimon that are some of the highest authorities in the Digital World. With twelve DigiCores each instead of one, they're on a whole other level of power, even compared with other Megas. They've reigned over the Digital World since the age of myth and are extremely difficult to track down, though they may appear of their own will to someone. The four are the Digital World's version of the animals of the cardinal directions in Asian folklore. Being actual major deities in their home universe, the Main House thought they were excellent choices to be bequeathed the trope The Four Gods.
  • Qinglongmon tends to be the most active in attempting to stop crises in the Digital World, though at the same time it has a reputation for aloofness. Zhuqiaomon has a bad temper and can be outright antagonistic, though it generally means well in the long run. Baihumon is the youngest and most hot-headed, as well as reputedly the most powerful of the four. Xuanwumon is the eldest and has a folksy, patient personality.
  • Although they have a proper temple like everyone else, they're not usually in it and instead can be found guarding the edges of the Pantheon's digital landscape. East, South, West and North, respectively. They may or may not come if someone tries summoning them through the computer at their temple; these four are known for not lending their help to just anyone. The White Hats try to keep track of them at all times so they can be easily contacted in times of crisis, and the four acknowledge and praise their efforts to keep the digital world safe, though they still won't easily go out of their way to help the group, believing they should prove they're worthy of it first. The conditions for this "proof" are known only to the four. And yes, the White Hats have to prove their worth for each new crisis that arises. Gods (actual ones) work in mysterious ways.
  • Their ascension was well-received by the 1999 and 2002 Digidestined; Qinglongmon had a large role in advising them and giving Paildramon the ability to evolve into Imperialdramon. They were also excited to finally meet the other three gods face-to-face and Koushiro took the opportunity to ask them whether they were really the partners of the Digidestined before them. The four cryptically answered that there were many truths to their origins.
  • As far as Digimon go they might be at the top of the chain, but even they answer to whatever host computer rules their world. In certain universes the four are ruled by ENIAC (yep, the first ever electronic computer), but in the hierarchy established in the Pantheon, their boss is Norn Mikihara, aka Yggdrasill. With that said, the four aren't as tethered to Norn as, say, the Royal Knights are. The four just do their thing in overseeing the Digital World and make periodic reports to Norn. Other than that, Norn has encouraged them to show more interest in the perspective and affairs of humans, which is something they have to get used to, given they made a point of being elusive in the past.
  • In the distant past, Lucemon sealed their superior Huanglongmon and overthrew the four so he could establish his own rule. While Lucemon eventually got overthrown himself thanks to the Warrior Ten and the four were restored to leadership, they do not take kindly at all to the fallen angel's presence in the Pantheon and resent him for what he's done to Huanglongmon. They do not tolerate any Digimon that destabilizes the peace and harmony of the Digital World, but It's Personal with Lucemon.
  • Despised by YHVH due to their claims of godhood and "promoting false faith", and it doesn't help that the evil Law god knows them as being Chaos-aligned (although these four mons would probably be considered Neutral in SMT terms). And given Lucemon is a favorite of YHVH's in the Pantheon, the Four Holy Beasts are in for a bad time against the GUAL. However, the heroes of the SMT universe sought them out and proposed that they fight alongside them against YHVH as their analogues so often did; given they use computers to summon demons, this method should be comfortable for the four. As a result, the four mons are summonable by SMT heroes, though only once a day as they still want to focus on the digital world.
  • They don't butt heads with every other universe's major god, as proven by their friendly relationship with Arceus, who like them is a major deity that rules over mons. The four often have diplomatic meetings with the Pokemon Top God to promote peace and good relations between Digimon and Pokemon, and like Arceus, they oppose Millenniumon for its wanton and gratuitous destruction. Although they are surprised and curious that a quirky hacker seems to have been able to tame the Millennium Bug and they wonder if Millenniumon could be redeemable after all.
  • Were paid a visit by the Bladebreakers, who wanted to see how the chosen four gods stacked up against their Bit-Beasts, who were drawn from the same source. The Bit-Beasts spontaneously manifested to meet their counterparts, and after the two groups sized each other up and danced around each other for a while, the Bit-Beasts were satisfied and receded into their Beyblades. While the Bladebreakers were wondering at the mysterious display, the four gods simply said they had their blessing.
  • Being such important and powerful digital deities, they are frequent targets of various evil computers and viruses for corruption or control. Clu once succeeded in taunting Baihumon, luring it into the Game Grid and trapping it there, where he proceeded to try to torture it until its mind broke, at which point Clu would force the strongest of the four to become his Digimon partner. Before that could happen, Sam Flynn and Qinglongmon teamed up and fought to free Baihumon, knowing it'd be a disaster if one of the four gods fell into evil hands. Sam and Qinglongmon succeeded, and the latter was impressed enough that a Digivice appeared in Sam's hands, tying the two as partners, surprising most of the Pantheon that one of the four gods would deign to be partners with anyone (then again, if legendary Pokemon do it...).
  • And then Kevin Flynn came out with the reveal that he and Xuanwumon had actually formed a partnership a while before Sam and Qinglongmon did; it just occurred in much more uneventful circumstances that caused it to go unnoticed. It happened when the four had paid a visit to converse with the God of Cyberspace and Xuanwumon remained a while longer, feeling that it and Kevin were kindred spirits, and after talking at length about their beliefs they formed a strong enough bond to become partners. Since then, Kevin can often be found meditating among the branches of Xuanwumon's tree.
  • While Norn may have been very pleased that half of them had managed to form strong bonds with humans, Zhuqiaomon for its part was rather grouchy at the developments and didn't see why they had to debase (that's how it sees it) themselves like that. At any rate, the four at some point were visited by the Priestess of Suzaku, Miaka Yuuki, who was itching to see if the four were kinder gods compared to the ones she knows. Qinglongmon was disappointed, to say the least, to hear about its analogue's terrible deeds and balked at learning Seiryuu was the god of war, though when hearing that Suzaku was the god of love, it had a good laugh because that didn't fit the bad-tempered Zhuqiaomon at all. Zhuqiaomon itself thought Miaka was actually quite different from how it usually envisions humans, after hearing about how she used the three wishes granted to her by Suzaku to save others when the temptation to waste them on herself must have been great. Zhuqiaomon stated, in somewhat Tsundere fashion, that if Miaka was ever in such danger that she needed greater help than her Guardians, Zhuqiaomon would probably come flying. Somehow that was enough for Miaka to obtain a Digivice, which confirms Zhuqiaomon has a softer spot for Miaka than it cares to demonstrate.
  • Following that, seeing that Baihumon was the only one left without a partner, Miaka got the idea to bring her friend Sarasa to meet it, due to the young woman's ties to the White Tiger. Sarasa was certainly interested in seeing the four gods in the flesh, though she doubted they would see anything of value in her. On the contrary, after hearing how Sarasa liberated her country, she had Baihumon's full attention. Baihumon decided that it would become Sarasa's partner, after she showed it her battle prowess first hand by fighting it. Almost everyone present thought a Mega Digimon versus a human was just unreasonable, but Sarasa unexpectedly agreed. So Sarasa fought Baihumon, but with a twist; she had her whole army backing her up and they made extensive use of strategy to beat the tiger. Sarasa explained to Baihumon that she had no chance of beating it by herself, just like she wouldn't have beaten Japan's monarchy without the help of her comrades, because she's really nothing special. Baihumon, instead of being angry, was won over by the trust between Sarasa and her army and decided she was the most worthy partner for it after all.
  • At some point Xuanwumon was confronted by a strange clown who referred to it as Maturin and said that this time IT wouldn't allow it to interfere with ITS goals. Xuanwumon was just sort of confused and commented that for a clown, ITS jokes needed work. Kevin Flynn explained that it was no joke and the clown was Pennywise, an evil abomination that liked to eat children, and also explained who Maturin was. Xuanwumon thought that it couldn't be helped and that it would just have to do Maturin's job of beating Pennywise to a pulp once in a while. No sense in letting the young ones suffer.

  • Greater God, but his RG/UG form is that of a Lesser God
  • Symbol: His cell phone
  • Theme Song: Calling
  • Alignment: True Neutral at first with an Evil leaning, Neutral Good after development
  • Portfolio: Tough, Effeminate Men, Has An Eye For The Brooding Anti-Hero Kind, Ambiguously Gay, Uses His Cellphone To Drop Objects From The Sky Or Cast Down Beams Of Light, Deadpan Snarker, Insufferable Genius, Physical God, Lonely at the Top, Being The Composer Is Hard, Authority Equals Asskicking, Victorious Antagonist, tries to corrupt Neku but ends up being "purified" by him instead, Not-So-Easily Forgiven, Restored My Faith in Humanity, Smug Smiler, Took a Level in Kindness
  • Domains: Death, Disguise, Holiness, Tokyo (or specifically, Shibuya)
  • Herald: Sanae Hanekoma, The Producer, and is actually of higher rank than Joshua. However, he prefers not to have that much attention, which is why he isn't the representative deity.
  • High Priest: Peco
  • Followers: Mokona, The Rainbow Faces, Fizban/Paladine, The Celestial, Luna/Althena
  • Allies: Neku Sakuraba, Shiki Misaki, Beat, Rhyme, Sora, Riku, Kaworu Nagisa, Bruce Nolan
  • Enemies: Master Xehanort and his cohorts, YHVH, enactors of Assimilation Plots like Keel Lorenz
  • Respected by: Crow
  • Opposed By: Sho Minamimoto
  • When Neku first met Joshua, it was during his second Reaper's Game where Shiki became his entry fee, requiring him to find a new partner. He was like Neku, but encouraged his isolationism, which Neku resisted since by that time, he's been learning to open up to people thanks to Shiki. There was also the fact that Joshua might've been the reason he was in the Reaper's Game in the first place by killing him. Despite that, Joshua has come to think of Neku as a friend.
    • The truth turns out to be a lot more complicated than that. He's actually the Composer, who orchestrates the Reaper's Game in the first place, and he planned on Shibuya's destruction because he thought it was losing its Imagination and wanted it destroyed before its influence could poison the rest of the world. His Game Master Kitaniji was against the idea, so the two played a Game to determine the district's fate. And Neku was Joshua's Proxy, meant to represent the worst of Shibuya to validate its destruction. However, his time spent with Neku, who changed almost completely for the better over the course of three Reaper's Games, ultimately convinced him to spare the city; if even the worst can improve, maybe it isn't hopeless for Shibuya to do the same.
  • Joshua has been in the Pantheon for a long time now, despite having no trope to his name (although he could've been someone's follower/high priest for awhile), and he had observed the ascensions of Neku and Beat, but never made an appearance until shortly after the Great Upheaval. He had distracted himself by playing Tin Pin Slammer in an alternate universe, which he had visited before for most of Neku's third week in the UG playing the Reaper's Game a third time before Hanekoma called him back. After satisfying his boredom, he returned to the Pantheon, and soon found a trope for his own: God Was My Copilot.
  • Joshua is usually found on the mortal plane, observing mortals from a distance. Whenever Neku and Beat make trips down to the mortal realm to spend time with Shiki and Rhyme (before their own ascensions to the Pantheon), Joshua keeps his distance, but still watches. He wanted to join them as Neku's friend, but never did, at least until Sora convinced him to.
    • It was thanks to him that Rhyme eventually ascended, by channeling her dreams.
  • He's a rather annoying person to be around, but is still rather smart, to the point where he can keep up with Minamimoto's rambling.
  • Ever since returning the Pantheon, Sho Minamimoto has once again started making attempts on Joshua's life. He's more interested in being the Composer than taking his position in the Pantheon, however. CRUNCH! He'll add God Was My Copilot to the heap. No attempts were successful as of yet. He's rather amused by these attempts, over all.
  • Is in direct opposition of Master Xehanort and his cohorts for the Heartless destroying his and his friends' world sometime after the whole Reaper's Game business. Joshua saved what he could of them by bringing the remnants of their dreams to Traverse Town when it appeared before him and used Rhyme's dream to open the portal into it. That was where he met and befriended Sora and Riku.
  • Is perfectly alright with wearing women's clothing.
  • Shio Ramen is his preferred form of tribute.
  • Only a select few in the Pantheon have seen Joshua in his full Composer form. Even Sora and Riku only got a glimpse at his wings. Minamimoto may have seen it, but both refuse to comment on the matter.
  • Despite his godlike powers, he too was a victim of the Friendship Asylum. Neku, Rhyme and Beat were able to save Joshua from the asylum, but not without a corrupted Riku being able to torture Joshua with his magical feathers. The resulting wounds would require Black Jack to operate on Joshua to save his life.
  • Has the respect of Crow of all gods for his victory in deciding on the fate of Shibuya and using the hero Neku as a pawn for accomplishing that plan. Sure, he ultimately decided to spare the city when his original plan was to destroy it, but that's not that much different from Crow's own change of mind when it came to his plans.
  • After one time where Shinji Ikari briefly confused him for Kaworu, Joshua decided to pay this other character a visit. At his temple, they both learned about each other's roles and worlds, which has also brought SEELE to Joshua's attention. After hearing of their Assimilation Plot by way of Instrumentality, it deeply disturbed him how much worse other variants of Kitaniji's plan could've gone in the hands of other people and has promised to help put these to an end.
  • Has been compared as bit to Izaya Orihara due to their plots to destroy humanity in a city, but for Izaya, the reason why he did it is because he wanted to go to Valhalla whereas Joshua had lost faith in on Shibuya's capacity for Imagination and didn't want its influence to infect the rest of the world. The Composer eventually regained his faith thanks to Neku, but Izaya never lost it, since he loves humanity for their unpredictable nature and it's this love that is the reason why he became The Chessmaster. That said, since Joshua is a supernatural entity, Izaya despises him, and the feeling is mutual, though Joshua's reasons are different.
  • Does not answering any questions as to why he's "abandoned" Neku after Coco killed him in the events of A New Day.

  • Opposes: Ramses, Moses, Lucifer
  • Opposed by: Geb
  • Without the sun, there'd be no light, no warmth, no life. Without Ra, there'd be no sun. The self-created Egyptian deity is the God of the Sun, and protector of life on earth. Every night, he fights against Apophis to preserve the cosmos from ending, where he is swallowed and thus the sun goes out. Though Osiris is just as important in Ancient Egyptian religion, it is Ra who commands the Egyptian gods. Learning that other gods have become involved with the Trope Pantheon, Ra felt it time to enter the pantheon.
  • Is often involved with the god kings of other faiths. He and Zeus are rivals, along with Arceus (though mainly Zeus). He's friendlier(though still competitive) with Amaterasu. The main Top God he's interested in is Odin. Like him, Odin is a champion of order and the safety of the world against chaos and destruction, though Odin's a bit more dickish about it. They've been seen brawling. When Zeus was assassinated, he worked with Athena and Mercury to find the culprit, with Neith assisting him. He opposed Hades due to taking over Olympus in the meanwhile and assassinating Zeus, and Ares for starting a conflict between the Egyptian and Greek gods while making it seem Anubis was responsible though was tricked by Hades as well.
  • Depending on the Writer, he is either the husband or father to Hathor/Sekhment, Bastet and Mut. He's definitively the father of Ma'at, Shu and Tefnut and sometimes Serket. Maybe both since they ARE Egyptian gods, but that's usually brought up in cattiness. Sometimes merged with Amun or Horus, and the gods Khnum, Kherpi and Raet-Tway have been described as aspects of him(though Raet-Tway is sometimes his daughter instead).
  • Has some issues with patrons of the Abrahamic faith, given their own history. Moses naturally has some issues with him and the Egyptian gods, as does Ra to him, but they've agreed to disagree. And much to Ramses' dissatisfaction, he doesn't approve of the pharaoh since Ra's no longer enemies with the God of Abraham. He's actually an ally with God(the one from God, the Devil and Bob) since he's a Nice Guy and opposes destruction like Ra(still have some issues working together though). Of course, he agrees with the three of them in hating YHVH, as He represents the incredible dickishness of Old Testament God and the desire to get rid of the competition.
    • Isn't fond of Lucifer, due to representing chaos while Ra is a force of order. Though he doesn't butt heads too often with Lucifer, as he deals mainly with destructive chaos and Lucifer opposes YHVH. Also royally pissed off at Caligula due to his attempt to move to Egypt and be venerated as a god there.
  • One of the most outspoken opponents of the GUAD. It has always been his duty to protect the world from the destroyer Apophis and was enraged to learn that a whole organization of those who follow in its footsteps exist. On the plus side, he also learned that their leader's Arch-Enemy was none other than the Life Entity, a beacon of light and life just like himself. In addition, he regards Orochi with contempt due to being an insane, abominable serpent like his archenemy. Always ready to serve them some Vitamin Dnote . Trying to get the GUAG to focus on the GUAD rather than the GUAE, who he sees as the lesser threat to Destruction.
  • Him and Geb are on pretty bad terms, as he separated him from his beloved sister Nut; he feared Nut's children would overthrow him, so when she snuck off to have kids split the two apart. His response was basically "deal with it". That being said they're still under the same pantheon and kind of have to get along. He can be somewhat of a Jerkass God, but he's firmly on the side of life and it's more of carrying the Jerkass Ball than anything. For instance, he's regretted Hathor's violent side of Sekhment.
    • Worth noting he was poisoned to near-death by Isis, just so he could say tell him her true name and tremendous magic boost. He's not a jerk without reason.
  • When Isis dethroned him, he took various steps to stop Apophis having Khepri become/create a prison for Apophis, but ended up a senile old man and eventually went to stay at the Sunny Acres Assisted-Living Community without the other gods knowing. He thankfully got better though, thanks to the work of the Kane siblings. Later gave Carter Kane his crook and flail and even made him pharaoh at the House of Life, for execrating Apophis.
  • Has a number of different guises available. Sometimes he wears a silver or solar eclipse get-up, sometimes he gets drunk with Roger the Alien and acts like an alien, abducting things, sometimes he's even an android. And on one occasion he had an American get-up called "Ra'merica", in the form of a bald eagle man. This form likes to hang out with Captain America.
  • Though they don't seek to destroy the world, those who wish to take out the sun are naturally on his hit list. The Grand Duke of Owls was hopping mad to learn that yet another sun god, and a fellow bird nonetheless. Chernabog finds his light to be another problem he wants dealt with, as does Nightmare Moon. Zs'skayr hopes to kill Ra so as to shroud the world in darkness, and eliminating his weakness to the light.
  • Was most pleased to learn of Ancient Egyptian figures, who venerated him in the past. His favored worshipper is Yami Yugi, who kept the peace against chaos and destruction as pharaoh. It is he who wielded the Winged Dragon of Ra, and now that he's ascended makes sure that the Egyptian God Cards don't fall into the wrong hands. One incarnation of his Horakhty incarnation was summoned to stop Zorc thanks to him fusing the Egyptian God Cards.
    • However, he was not happy when he learned how Yami Yugi (and Yugi Muto) unleashed The Egyptian God Cards upon the Pantheon in what is known as the Asylum Incident in which the gods destroyed most of the Pantheon, killed many a god and more. And when he learned just what Yami did to three adorable little ponies... he was even more outraged. However, after learning that most of the actions were due to brainwashing than sheer malice, Ra has forgiven the Pharaoh for his crimes and now focuses on the true mastermind for the chaos... YHVH.
  • One of the oldest solar deities, many associated with the sun consider him an elder and defer to him. Those molded on the sun's image like Volcarona and Ho-oh seem him as a father figure, and Ra would claim he created them in his shape. He shares the position of "the greater light god" with Ezalor, and the two hope to form a group in the pantheon for solar figures. As Superman is powered by the yellow sun, he has been using his solar powers to power up the Man of Steel.
  • He, along with Odin and Vishnu, were the ones who slew the initial Eldritch Abomination that Aku spawned from. He later helped out Samurai Jack, and has made it clear he now seeks to take out Aku personally. He's also grateful towards Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase for helping out the Kane siblings in a crossover. And for that matter, he's remarkably similar to Azir, who is probably his Runeterra counterpart. The two often compete for who's the best god of the desert, usually reacting like this. None notice the irony.
  • No, he has no relation to the Goa'uld of the same name. And he's not a member of the Osirians(the alien race specifically, not the Osirian Pantheon). He did serve as an Ultimate Persona at one time though. This was before Nyarlathotep made his ploy, though now that he knows of the Crawling Chaos he intends to take out him due to trying to destroy mankind for a pointless bet.
  • Has been doing a few commercials as of late.

"When the sun rests, and the world is dark, and the great fires are lit, and the ale is poured into flagons, then it is time to sing sagas as the Dwarfs do. And the greatest saga is the saga of Sigmar, mightiest warrior. Harken now, hear these words, and live in hope."

  • Sigmar Unberogen was once a man of the Unberogen tribe, one of the mightiest tribes of men in the early days and a devout believer of Ulric, the Warrior God of Winter and Wolves. He was born in a day when a twin-tailed comet passed through the world, a sign that he was destined for greatness. Indeed, Sigmar took to finding a way to unite Humanity, whom had become too indulged in fighting against one another and were under the threat of the increasing might of the Greenskins and Beastmen, Taking the helm of a Warhammer named Ghal Maraz, Sigmar unified the 12 tribes and rallied them against the Greenskins and Beastmen separately, ultimately winning and becoming their leader. He created a civilized, orderly empire and was anointed Emperor by the Ar-Ulrich of the Church of Ulric, whereafter he ruled his empire for 50 years and personally took to defending his home and people from various enemies such as the Morkar the Uniter, the first of the Everchosen, the Norscan Tribes and the return of Nagash, the Great Necromancer. In the last documented moments of his life, Sigmar took one last glance at the people and land that he dearly loved and departed to the direction of the Worlds Edge Mountains. He was never seen again. In his legacy, a religion was created that revered him as a messianic figure and a ruling establishment was formed under the Elector Counts, different rulers of different lands who still swore fealty to their leader, the Emperor.
    • It was believed that Sigmar died while travelling to the Worlds Edge Mountains, though because he was never found, this was debatable. Some speculated that he ascended to Godhood, but chose to not return. However, what actually happened was that the Chaos God, Tzeentch had captured and subjected him to the Winds of Heaven. To Tzeentch's surprise, Sigmar became stronger over time and was freed from his prison due to the machinations of the Elf Wizard, Teclis, during the advent of the End Times. During these events, Sigmar embedded a part of his power to Valten and his soul to the corpse of Karl Franz, effectively resurrecting him.
  • In the final moments of the Warhammer World, Sigmar reclaimed his hammer, restoring his full power and presence and confronted the fifth and final Everchosen, Archaon, to determine the fate of the world. Archaon, embittered by his former god not being there during his crisis of faith back in his early days, challenged the God-Emperor in a brutal and vicious battle as the world around them was crumbling and disintegrating and everyone around them panicking and dying. In their last moments, Sigmar and Archaon gripped onto the handle of Ghal Maraz, wrestling for control after which both tumbled down into a Chaos Warp Rift.
    • Even after everything was destroyed and no one was left around, Sigmar and Archaon continued to brawl in the rift for countless years, a seemingly endless battle where neither seemed to be having a particular advantage. Then, it happened; the God-Emperor and the Everchosen were not in the rift anymore, but rather a brand new world where nothing looked familiar. This didn't deter their focus in any way, with Sigmar and Archaon still fighting, their epic duel witnessed by bypassers from the forces of good, evil and many others. Finally, the battle came to a sudden and abrupt end with an unknown cosmic force blowing both forces away from one another and knocking them unconscious.
    • Upon regaining consciousness, Sigmar looked around to realize that he was in a whole new world. Composing his will to fight and honour his homeland, he travelled around, stumbling across Cosmos. The Goddess of Good expressed curiosity on who he was, to which Sigmar replied that his homeworld was now gone and that he is in the mood of rebuilding it. To his surprise, he was delighted when Cosmos told Sigmar about the Warhammer having surfaced somewhere, albeit in a fractured and incomplete state. He visited the rebuilding Empire and gave his graces to Karl Franz, who reciprocated by thanking him for doing the best possible to try defending their home. From there, Sigmar decided to leave the ruling duties to Karl and returned to Cosmos, telling her what he knew about his world, all of his allies and enemies, especially the Chaos Gods and Archaon and how their influence is still being projected in the Pantheon. He pleaded for an alliance, citing that he will do whatever is necessary to unite and strengthen the morale of her collective forces. Seeing his words as just and humble, Cosmos accepted, appointing Sigmar into the GUAG Command, for Sigmar had every intention of wanting to keep forces of good united and in control. This time, he will not let the Chaos Gods triumph again.
  • Regarding Karl Franz, there was a debate as to whom would take over the possession of Ghal Maraz in the Pantheon. Out of respect, Karl handed it over to its original wielder, whereupon Sigmar decided to bestow Karl with a replica to fight with. While not as strong, the replica is still a formidable weapon, though with Godhood now embedded within him, Sigmar's control over the original Ghal Maraz not only makes the Warhammer stronger, but it also allows him to manipulate electrokinesis whenever he wills it.
  • Sigmar makes it pretty clear that despite his reputation, he still allows himself to listen to Cosmos in regards to her wisdom and influence. That said, Sigmar does assert that in a battlefield, he feels as if he should take top leadership as he believes that his influence towards mankind would allow him to assert control and discipline to the forces of Good. Cosmos understands him but tells the God-Emperor to be wary of succumbing to becoming far more militant than he should be, which he does worry about.
    • Regarding the GUAG's leadership, Sigmar has a mostly positive reception, though his failure to save the Warhammer World has underscored him with some form of criticism, a fact that Sigmar is forced to accept without hesitation. Batman once asked him about ever employing a strategy to his final fight against the Forces of Chaos, which Sigmar replied that by the time he reemerged, the world was already coming to an end and that he was the only remaining force left to fight against Archaon. Being a lone survivor hasn't done him favours either, with Sigmar proclaiming that one of his major goals is to re-establish his influence from scratch, even if it takes a millennia.
  • As a former mortal who ascended to Godhood, Sigmar doesn't know how to think of or communicate with Shegorath. He's not evil, but he's certainly ambiguous, plus Shegorath's main shtick is joking around and having fun, though not in a sense that would entice people. That said, Shegorath does find Sigmar rather interesting and often attends his presence to entertain him, much to the God-Emperor's chagrin.
  • Zamasu hates Sigmar, utterly baffled and disgusted that a human being transcended into godhood and represents a race as corrupted and destructive (in his point of view) as mankind. Having heard of the Kai's tales and the eventual destruction of his timeline's multiverse, Sigmar directed much of his contempt to him, giving Zamasu his own statement about what he really thinks of him;
    Sigmar: You refer to yourself as a saviour, eh? Because if you certainly seem to think so, then you seem to be in denial of the damage you've done, even dragging your own kind to oblivion and for what? You clearly haven't any idea about standing up for what is true and just, only looking at the benefits and view's of oneself. You, Zamasu, are a scourge. A scourge who spreads chaos and misery because you cannot fathom anyone and anything but yourself. But it doesn't matter either way because there's no hope for salvation and your pride all but renders you blind.
  • Having wandered around the Pantheon for a long time, it didn't take long for Sigmar to realize that there were threats just as grand and devious as the Chaos Gods. Among them was the Daedric Prince, Molag Bal, who took delight into how Sigmar was tortured by Tzeentch upon imprisonment, though he was disappointed by how he was able to break free and resume his crusade against the Forces of Chaos. Regardless, Val's creation of Vampirism in his universe didn't sit well with Sigmar, given how the vampires of the Warhammer World were relentless in their aim to plunder the world into darkness.
    • By extension, Sigmar has a rather difficult time regarding the many vampires in the Pantheon. To his credit, many of them are feral, bloodhungry or even morally depraved beasts who may sometimes kill for the hell of it. However, Sigmar realized that there were good-natured vampires around as well and is eager to at least try helping them out, despite his powers being a repelling force to them. It helps in that one particular vampire, Genevieve Dieudonné, happens to be a renowned figure for the Empire.
    • Of course, he was not happy to learn of the presence of the Von Carstein Counts, Mannfred and Konrad in the Pantheon, especially given that the former was responsible for allowing the Warhammer World to be destroyed. Even worse was that both of them were under the allegiance of Nagash and that both of them pitted themselves in a Cold War of sorts, partly to determine who's the better (or in this case, worse) of the brothers and partly to increase the influence of the GUAD. Their father, Vlad is also contemptuous of the situation, prompting him to establish a ceasefire against the God-Emperor in dealing with them.
  • He comes to see Madoka Kaname in very high regard. They can both relate in the sense that they decided to ascend to Godhood in an attempt to stop humankind from suffering and are incredibly dedicated to their causes and to those that they love, especially provided that they represent hope. However, Madoka is a pacifist who prefers to nurture and look after others whereas Sigmar is more proactive in stepping into the battlefield and leading humankind to victory.
    • When Sigmar caught news of the Pantheonic Rebellion that sapped away Madoka's influence and powers, the God-Emperor became furious over the events that transpired and the rising powers of Law and Chaos weren't helping matters either. He backed Madoka's decision to be more proactive in the future and was in support of her getting her powers back, even if it meant going against Homura Akemi.
    • Regarding Homura herself, Sigmar sincerely hopes to bring her back to the side of good, knowing that most of Homura's actions were out of love and affection. At the same time, however, Sigmar disagrees with the way she went through with protecting Madoka and feels that if left unchecked, Homura would be dooming the Pantheon out of an obsessive desire which Madoka wouldn't appreciate either. Sigmar aims to reason with Homura, though given her pact with Lucifer, things don't seem to be too bright on either side.
  • In time, Sigmar realized that there were many threats that were just as big and destructive as the Chaos Gods themselves. Chief among them were Melkor, Darkseid, Thanos, Chakravartin and Chaos, all of whom have threatened to destroy entire galaxies and realms to satiate their desires. Sigmar sees some of them differently in a sense, but always with contempt; Melkor for his petty excuse of not being able to create anything, Darkseid for wanting to prolong suffering and entropy as long as he can, Thanos for his obsession towards Death and destruction, Chakravartin for not taking any responsibility in his destruction and looking down on anyone and anything and Chaos for her malicious manipulation of her servants and towards the Sailor Guardians, and not to mention Chaos reminding Sigmar of the Chaos Gods themselves, especially Tzeentch.
  • While normally considered a God-Emperor, Sigmar is also a God of Thunder in all but name, given that with the help of Ghal Maraz, he is able to manipulate electricity and thunderstorms. He, Thor and Raiden all share their ability of electrokinesis and are sworn defenders of what means a lot to them, so it's not surprising that they quickly became close allies and a Power Trio. By extension, this also meant that Sigmar came to learn a lot more about different realms and cultures and asserts that he will use the powers granted to him by the GUAG to further understand, preserve and respect them.
    • And then there's Zeus. Sigmar has made it very clear that he doesn't see the Greek God of Lightning in high regard, unlike Thor and Raiden, primarily because Zeus was heavily opposed to granting humankind (and by extension, mortals) wisdom and further understanding, which led to him chaining Prometheus when he dared to provide humans with fire and damning him to eternal torment. Zeus sees Sigmar as an imitation and just because he's now a god doesn't brighten his opinions on him either way. While the fact that Sigmar and Zeus aren't on good terms is public knowledge, they are forced to work together as they seem to have a lot of mutual enemies in the Pantheon.
  • His reputation caught the interest of the King of Heroes, Gilgamesh. When the two met, Gilgamesh expressed disappointment towards Sigmar failing to save his world, but at the same time, complimented and respected his resolve and determination to lead his people and help his empire preserve, noting that his commitment is not unlike that of Arturia Pendragon. Sigmar, in response, urged Gilgamesh to work together to no avail, as the King of Heroes stated that he has his own business to attend to, but quipped that he will be looking forward to fighting against the God-Emperor one day and seeing him as a "worthy member of a large pack of mongrels". Despite the disappointment, Sigmar accepted that he's better off working with Arturia for the moment, but is preparing for a time when Gilgamesh will approach him for battle.
  • The story of Liu Kang was a tragedy according to Sigmar and regretted to be an enemy to him, given his fall to darkness. This changed when after Kronika's attempts to alter the timeline to her liking bought forth a younger Liu Kang and was pitted against his evil older self, the God-Emperor was happy to see that he may come back to being a hero after all. His words were proven correct when Raiden infused all of his power and influence into his protege, turning Liu Kang into a Fire God who successfully stopped Kronika and Shang Tsung from distorting time further to their liking. As for Liu Kang himself, he sympathizes with Sigmar in losing his homeworld, given that Raiden went through a similar crisis regarding his chosen warriors. The God-Emperor has asserted that he will not falter this time, extending his protection to the Pantheon as a whole as well and establishing a working partnership with the current Fire God.
    • He also became good friends with Kitana as Sigmar found her experiences and turmoil to be one of character and growth and was impressed to see her uniting the several races of Outworld into her services and loyalty. Sigmar himself took this as a sign that he should begin to work on bettering his relationship between the Dwarfs, Elves and Lizardmen if they truly must win against the Forces of Chaos. And of course, he's got nothing complimentary to say to Shao Kahn, seeing how his leadership made him hated by nearly everyone who worked for him and only working for his own benefits. Shao Kahn, on the other hand, scoffs Sigmar's mindset and considers him weak for trying to unite his services under respect when that should be done by fear.
  • Inevitably, he would learn of a setting where the Forces and Daemons of Chaos had a dominant control over a universe. This, too, had an emperor like Sigmar, except that he was crippled and kept barely functional by a life-support system. Luckily, this God-Emperor of Mankind resided in the Pantheon in a fully healthy condition, and Sigmar decided to visit him. The two of them greeted each other formally and, despite some arguments regarding the treatment towards other races like elves, dwarfs and aliens, they found themselves in an agreement. The Emperor of Mankind, thinking he would make an excellent second-in-command, offered Sigmar a high position in the Order of Humanity, but because of his leading position in the GUAG Command, Sigmar politely declined. Still, he did state that he will have a working relationship to aid and compete against each other in civil terms, to which the Emperor of Mankind nodded in approval.
  • The Elves are a difficult topic for him. This stems from the fact that the residential Elves of his world tend to be either prejudiced, aloof and more concerned about themselves. He does get along with Tyrion and sympathizes with his struggles, though Teclis is a lot more difficult, given that reviving Nagash as a way to engineer the End Times was not a welcoming signal, though he'll cut him some slack as Teclis aims to atone himself. Orion is best left to defend Athel Loren and obviously has the least personal relationship with him. Malekith of the Dark Elves normally sees Sigmar as an opponent, which is not helped by the fact that his race has been an enemy to humankind for a long time. However, they do have a common enemy in the Chaos Gods and the GUAE and hence, they will set aside their differences for this occasion. For once, Sigmar does compliment the Witch-King for trying to work with other races, though Malekith makes it clear he's going to have to prepare for himself.
    • He was surprised to learn of Orcs that were willing to pursue a more civilized society and learn to coexist with other races. Chief among them was Thrall, who himself wasn't exactly fond of Grimgor himself. Sigmar was initially wary, but once Thrall spoke out his reasoning, he presented himself his allies, which intrigued Sigmar into consideration for the Orc. Soon, the God-Emperor decided to establish a partnership, which worked on Thrall's favour as well, leading to the two becoming warrior friends and Thrall being a welcomed visitor to the Empire.
  • Despite his reputation of maintaining his celibacy, Sigmar actually fathered twin sons with Queen Freya of the Asoborns. This is information that not many know about, save for a select few, but Sigmar has made it pretty clear that he would have instead preferred if the ruling system of the Empire was more based on votes and the peoples' choices as a way to determine who would be most fit to govern. That said, he does solemnly admit that the Empire did undergo its fair share of corruption and fraud, something that he and Karl would like to remedy. As for Queen Freya and their sons, Sigmar has yet to make a comment about it.
  • As the founder and ruler of The Empire, Sigmar is also associated with the Monarchs Sub-House.
"Aye, the Empire needs heirs. And you are all my heirs. Everyone who lives in this land is my heir. Everyone who fights and bleeds to protect the Empire... They will all be Sigmar’s heirs"

  • A jotunn who is the goddess of winter, bowhunting, mountains, and skiing. Enranged by the death of her father, Thiazi, she planned to take down all of the Aesirs as they are all responsible of his father. She and the Aesirs instead reach a compromise and to reconcile. The first one is to make her laugh, which Loki managed to succeed in doing so, which lets Odin's take Thiazi's eyes to the sky to turn into stars, which pleases. The second is letting her choose a husband among them, but only by looking at her feet. Wanting to marry Baldr, she failed as she accidentally choose Njord, which also makes her the step-mother of Freya and Freyr. Their living conditions eventually led them to lie an awful wedded life, which causes them to seperate and return to their lives.
  • The reason why she ascended is because of this. Her domains like winter, bowhunting, and mountains are very understandable, but skiing? It is one of the weirdest things thst you think would inhabit by a deity since not a lot of deities inhabit that and there isn't anything important to skiing in a mythological setting if you really think about it, which is why she ascended.
  • She's very happy to see her fellow gods again the Pantheon and celebrated. She's shocked to see that the Thor is different from the one she knew, being that he is much more noble, less of an asshole and more kindhearted, and has different requirements of using Mjolnir, because of this, they get along pretty quickly. She's very happy to hear of Loki's redemption, and because of that, they become friends again, although it did take a while for it to happen, but Loki still doesn't forgive her for placing a venomous snake around his face. She's not exactly happy seeing Loki's children and Surtr as they pretty much one of the reasons why Ragnarok happened, killing most of the gods with only a handful of them and two humans survived to rebuild civilization.
    • From her fellow gods, she heard a different counterpart of Hel existed and she's not pleased upon hearing the details. Considering she's the Goddess of Death and using that position to caused greater death than what is imagined, destroyed Thor's hammer, and slaughtered the Asgardians in that universe, she is not exactly pleased.
  • Due to being the goddess of winter, she met the House of Ice And Cold. She befriended all of the deities due to her association with it and although they're weirded out with one of associations is skiing, they didn't spat her out of it since it's a winter sport. It also helps that she knows how to fight, which managed her to get some bonus points with Olaf and Ymir. The only god in that House she didn't get along with is Kaldr. This is because he is the personification of heat death in his universe, uses his powers for evil, and the fact he doesn't mind it really sets her off.
  • She got to meet a living snowman in the Pantheon, who is Olaf. Olaf feels bad hearing the story of her father's death, and attempted to console her for it. The fact she managed to reconcile with the people that are responsible for her father's death pretty much astounded him. She is warmed by his loyalty to his friends and is happy to see that he could live in summer without melting. It also helps that he is created by one of her new friends in the Pantheon, Elsa.
  • Hearing about a Lostbelt where a Celtic figure became an avatar of her instead of being a warrior queen and goldslayer, she decided to go off to meet that person, who is Scathach. The goddess of winter is not impressed with what happened in that world and wanted to knock some sense into her....that is until she was stopped by the Master of Chaldea. Hearing about the story from them, she apologized to Scathach from confronting her mercilessly. She admires the Master from saving humanity as a whole even if the situation requires to destroy other Lostbelts to survives and that Scathach is one of the Servants he summoned. She became good friends with them after that and hearing about her other self, she wonders if she could be summoned as a Servant someday. Although for the moment, she has been having extra fatigues because she received a lot of summons for 'farming problems'.
  • Seeing that one of her domains as a goddess is archery and is an actual goddess, she was approached by Artemis and became rivals because of this. Artemis feels bad for her awful marriage, ststing that she didn't deserve any of this and wanted to kill the Aesirs for this, but Skaði calmed her down, as she already reconciled with them. Hearing about her association with the mountains, Artemis is happy to hear that there is someone share the same positions with her, even though Skaði is much more associated with winter. Because of this, the two established more of a Friendly Rivalry.
    • Through Artemis, she met other archers as a result, including her student, Chiron. She admires the centaur for his good wisdom and his good nature compared to the other centaurs and his family members, with Chiron admiring her sense of justice and judgement (though he does feel uneasy with some of her punishments), which is why they got along and passed more as friends rather than rivals. She also met other human archers, such as Hawkeye, Green Arrow, and Katniss. She is impressed with how keen sense of eyesight and their mastery of archery, and most of all, they're able to do it without having any superpowers to contribute it and are just mortals. With that, they're more like rivalry because she doesn't see them as the type she could hang out with and they're much more likely to have other archers as their own rivals, though she does admire the first two for their jobs as superheroes and the latter for volunteering as tribute in the Hunger Games, seeing it as a selfless act.
    • Hearing about an another archer named Hanzo Shimada, she feels bad for him. She thinks it sucks that he is in a redemption quest that is entirely pointless and thinks that he is irredeemable. He is also a bit of Death Seeker, but it also infuriates her that he couldn't find a way to forgive himself and also accepting Genji's forgiveness, which really sets her off. But she seems that he suffered too much that she calmed down a bit, but she hopes that he'll find a way to forgive himself and also accepting Genji's forgiveness and to become true brothers again. As someone who pursues justice and judgement, she forgives him for his actions, knowing that he has so much regret in his heart that she could feel sympathy for him, and seeing that she forgive the Aesirs for killing her father, it would be hypocritical of her to spite him if it wasn't for his desire of atonement.
  • Passionate in the pursuit of justice and judgement with some sources saying she is also the goddess of justice and judgement, she got along with the good side of the House of Justice. She is horrified to learn that there are evil deities of the House of Justice, wondering why they have a position there in the first place. She wanted to say that they should be disband from that House, but she knew she couldn't do anything and decided to leave them be.
  • She can be summoned as an SMT demon and as a Persona. She was contracted by Nanashi, Makoto Yuki, Aigis, Yu Narukami, and Ren Amamiya. Hearing that they are already in the Pantheon, she's very happy to see them again, congratulated them in their efforts to save humanity (though Nanashi's situation is different), and is willing to be contracted with them again if they ever need her help.
    • The Demi-Fiend is a special case. In his universe, she was one of the guardians of the flow of Magatsuhi and she represents the red temple. The Demi-Fiend was requested to liberate the three temples and in order to safeguard the place, they have to battle. After their battle, she joined him as one of his demons coincidentally by evolving Scathach. Seeing that he is not as different as the one she knew, she's willing to join him again.
  • She used to be one of Mem Aleph's enthralled Mothers until being defeated by Tadano Hitonari. Seeing that Skaði is different from the one Mem Aleph knew and that she truly doesn't care about humanity and wants to eradicate them, the goddess doesn't want to serve under her anytime soon, even though she understands her reasons of doing so.
  • Some sources say that after she and Njord have a divorce, she remarried Ullr, others said it's Odin. When a lot of deities ask her about it, she gives no comment about it. She doesn't want it to spill around the Pantheon any longer, especially in the House of Love, which really annoys her, as that House is known for it's Ship-to-Ship Combat, so she doesn't say anything about the issue, which disappointed some of the deities.

  • The daughter of the Divine Dragon, Naga, she was put into a deep slumber by her mother and Gotoh because they feared her immense power may destroy humanity should she grew feral. She was awakened by a manakete Bantu out of sympathy for the little manakete girl and took her outside to see the world. There she was separated from her guardian and was captured and brainwashed by Gharnef, until she was snapped out of the trance by Bantu and joined Marth's army. She was eventually forced to return to slumber by Gotoh until Marth retrieved the spheres to restore the Binding Shield, in which he allowed Tiki to awaken and live among humans.
  • Thousand of years later, she lived in the continent of Valm where she was known as "Naga's Voice" where she aided Marth's descendants, Chrom and his daughter from the dark future Lucina from the Fell Dragon.
  • She is a manakete, a ancient race of dragons who resume a human form who keep their powers though dragonstones. As the child of the divine dragons, she is the most powerful of all dragons and she could defeat other dragons with the Divinestone. So when she found many evil dragons who threaten humanity, she would surely show the power of the divine dragons.
  • She happily hugged "Mar-Mar" upon finding him in the Pantheon. She also greet happily to all her friends that been at her side and was glad they will never go away. But she sometimes mistaken Lucina for "Mar-Mar" because of her strong resemblance to him.
  • She is completely horrified of Gharnef, because he uses his magic to brainwash her in the Fane of Raman. Just his presence could give her nightmares.
  • She learned about other dragons in various Outrealms with mixed reactions:
    • She heard of a faraway land where the dragons gave their blood to empower twelve heroes to defeat Loptyr the Earth Dragon and meet some of their descendants. She was not happy with one who desecrated the dragon's lineage and created an empire that grew corrupted.
    • Then there was a land where humanity exiled the dragons from their world. At first, Lyn was a bit hostile with her because she faced a powerful dragon that tried to return to their world which could be catastrophic as well as Sain and the Tactician, but Roy convinced them that she means no harm when he befriended a divine dragon Fae from Arcadia and they opposed the Scouring.
    • In a world where monsters nearly destroyed the continent of Magvel, dragons and the Five Heroes defeated Fomortiis the Demon King and sealed him in the Sacred Stones. The tribe retreated into seclusion and only the people of Caer Pelyn remembered them.
    • In another world, she meet Ike who told her about a kingdom of isolated dragons and admit that fighting them would be very hard, especially their king.
    • Finally, she was awestruck when meeting Corrin and the royal family of two kingdoms who were descendant of the First Dragon who's blood allowed them to shape the land.
  • She's present as a mirage but also a visual character of a software called Singaloid. She governs the Bloom Palace that aid the party in powering up the other Mirages.
  • She wants to befriend more other dragons since she felt lonely from many centuries of sleeping and countless eras. She even wants to befriend dragon who could assume a human form as they are much like her. She considered the two Dragon aspect like her aunts and thought they were Manaketes as well because of their pointed ears and dragon form.
    • She wanted to befriend the other Dragon Aspect sans Deathwing but Nozdormu doesn't care and Malygos REALLY doesn't care.
  • Gwyn and Nito both hold hatred toward dragons and since she is among the most powerful dragons in Archanea, they view her as a threat. Still, she told them that Divine Dragons have protected humanity from the degenerated Earth Dragons but since they killed dragons during the Age of Ancient, she realize that it was a lost cause. She also have to deal with Ornstein who want to kill her for sport, especially as a challenge to see if she's as powerful as they claimed for a Divine Dragon.
    • The Nameless King has done his best to protect her from them. While she might not appreciate that he betrayed his father Gwyn, the fact that he committed a genocide on dragons, she found a reliable ally who would fight for dragons.
  • When many worlds merged, Juri tried to kidnap her under M. Bison's orders. It was also the merging where she meet Yuri Lowell and his friend Flyn-Flyn (Flynn Scifo), in which she compare them to Ogma and Navarre. Once, in the Outrealm Hot Spring, she invited the party to relax in the spring.
  • She was not happy being merchandised by Anna, in which when she found out about it, she threatened to eat her unless she makes an apologize and giving Tiki all the money she monetized. Of course, Anna decided to make profit someplace much to her annoyance.
  • Tiki has an interesting relationship with dragon-slayers. While she is a bit scared of those kind of people who would kill dragon, she is very powerful enough to overpower other dragons (mostly feral dragons and evil Manaketes like Medeus). In fact, Marth and his lineage was given a weapon designed to pierce dragon scales made from the fang of her mother, Naga. So, she's okay with good dragon-slayers. She's not okay with dragon-slayers who kill other dragons because they see them nothing but feral.
  • Sometimes when someone tell her to behave or act her age: "Thbbbbbbt!"
  • Also has a temple in the House of Beast.
