Pantheon / Earth & Rock

Go To

The lands of Earth and Rock are composed of an arid desert, rocky mountains and a small town made entirely out of jewelry. Those who wish to enter this place are advised to bring water supplies with them, as sources of water are non-existent here. Sandworms are a common sight, so visitors are warned to make sure that they can outrun them in the case they would attempt to devour them. Thankfully, there's several paths of rock that can ensure survival from the worms, and said rock paths can bring gods and mortals to the temples of the deities who make their home here.


A volcano lies dormant closely nearby, connecting the lands of Earth and Rock with the lands of Fire and Heat.

Greater Gods

Geb, Divine Rock Monster (Seb, Keb, God of Earth)
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Snake, Geese, Bull and Barley
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Gentle Giant, Dishing Out Dirt, Action Dad, Longing to be Reunited With His Lover, Nut Who is His Sister, Literal Stone Wall
  • Domains: Earth, Harvest
  • Allies: Osiris (his son), Optimus Prime, Groot, Iron Giant, Usagi Tsukino, Jeanne de'Arc, Ghost Rider, Captain Planet, Graboids
  • Enemies: Hexxus, Hedorah
  • Rivals: Ascended SMITE deities
  • Oppose: Most of the Wind deities
  • High Priest: Tiny
  • Followers: Pebbles, Malphite
  • The Egyptian God of Earth, Geb has taken the form of the Earth itself to do battle in a war against the Gods.
  • Despite Geb's fearsome appearance, he is a gentle God. In fact, not only does he commands the earth, he also blesses the land with a plentiful harvest for men. This makes him pretty good friends with both Groot and Iron Giant.
  • Has been known to create earthquakes every time he laughs. Once saw a comedy special at the House of Theater and nearly destroyed the entire house.
  • Is very untrusting to most Wind deities. This is because Shu, his own son and a wind deity, was commanded by Ra to separate him and his wife Nut as their relationship was inappropriate. So he is very wary of these deities as well.
    • However, he mainly hates Ra for commanding the separation in the first place. He thought he saw Ra and nearly tore the Pantheon apart battling him. Turns out he mistook Azir as the Egyptian Sun God. After being informed of his mistake, Geb apologized for his action.
  • Some of the more sinful members of the pantheon try and avoid Geb. This is because Geb is known to swallow sinner beneath the earth and drag them into the underworld.
  • Geb doesn't like when others try and bathe in his pond. More often then not, he might just grab you and throw you out of there.
  • While it's not surprising he can form from other parts of the earth like volcanic or sand, it was surprising that he had a mech form. It was in his mecha form that he did battle with Hedorah.
  • When in combat, Geb always tries to end it as peacefully as possible. This mentality has made him good friends with the likes of Optimus Prime and Usagi Tsukino.
    • Usagi has also sympathized with Geb's plight of being seperated by his wife and she hopes to help on anyway she can to reunite the two.
  • "With shields and rocks, and stones, we shall force our enemies to yield peacefully."


Intermediate Gods

Heatran, God of Volcanic Habitats (The Lava Dome Pokémon)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A volcano with Heatran's footprints imprinted on it
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Gender: Male
  • Ability: Flash Fire
  • Moveset: Magma Storm, Flash Cannon, Earth Power, Will o Wisp
    • Z-Move: Inferno Overdrive
  • Portfolio: Volcano Lair, Magma Man, Extra-ore-dinary, Olympus Mons, Wall Crawl, Unusually Uninteresting Sight, My Blood Runs Hot, Secret Art
  • Domains: Volcanoes, Magma, Metal
  • Allies: Ash Ketchum, Pikachu, Arceus, Volcarona, Charizard, Ika Musume
  • Enemies: Ghetsis, The Grand United Alliance of Destruction
  • Opposes: Any Water, Earth and Martial Artist deities, anyone who moves the Magma Stone, Ragnaros the Firelord, Fleet Admiral Sakazuki
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Other Metal deities
  • Because Heatran has blood as hot as magma running through its body Heatran makes its home in a volcano, due to this almost no one ever goes to Heatran's volcano temple unless they can handle its extreme temperatures.
    • If one does decide to go to Heatran's temple, Heatran will usually leave you alone and just walk on the walls of its temple, unless you take the magma stone which will cause the volcano to erupt and Heatran will chase you down relentlessly until you return the magma stone and then pay no attention to you.
  • It's not uncommon to see Heatran getting along well with other fire deities who visit Heatran's temple, however, Heatran isn't very fond of other water and earth deities for obvious reasons.
    • Heatran has a very odd relationship with other metal deities as they get along well due to Heatran being metal armor on it, however, they're also wary of Heatran due to his primary typing being fire, thus being dangerous to them.
  • While Heatran was still in the mortal realm, Heatran was aware that there were several other Heatran that were in the care of other trainers. This caused Heatran to wonder if other humans ever felt weird about seeing a Legendary Pokémon among crowds of people or if they just didn't pay it any mind.
    • That curiosity caused Heatran to strike up a strange friendship with Ika Musume due to her being a talking, anthropomorphized squid that garners no strange looks from others whatsoever.
  • Despite Ragnaros the Firelord, Fleet Admiral Sakazuki and The Firebird having control over magma like Heatran, he's not a fan of any of them as Heatran finds all of them too insane for Heatran's liking.
    • Fortunately, Heatran has become good friends with Vulcan due to being a lot friendlier than the other magma controlling deities as well as being a weapons forger goes well with Fire-Steel Pokémon.
  • The Grand United Alliance of Destruction have shown interest in removing the magma stone from Heatran's temple as they'd love to see the destruction caused by Heatran's temple erupting. However, Heatran isn't making it easy for the GUAD as Heatran is keep a vigilant eye over the magma stone.

Medusa, Goddess of Petrification (The Gorgon)
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her hair of snakes
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Unjust Punishments Bringing About Abominations, Snake People, Eye Contact Powers, Fitting Deaths, Turning Flesh to Stone, Demises Brought About by One's Own Powers
  • Domains: Petrification, Hideousness
  • Followers: The Basilisk, The Cockatrice, Cassiopeia
  • High Priest: Mukai
  • Allies: Arachne, Lesale, Crixalis
  • Enemies: ATHENA, Simon Belmont, Pit, Flynn, Sven, Zeus, Both Hades, Aphrodite, Ares, Palutena, Kratos, Poseidon, Ghatanothoa
  • Opposes: Every true God in the pantheon.
  • Rocky Relationship: the other Medusa
  • Applied for this position in the hopes that as a goddess, she'd be able to break the snakehead curse she was hit with a while back by Athena for fornicating in a temple. Unfortunately, she forgot that the petrification effect is a product of the snakehead thing, so by taking the position, she made it permanent. She takes her frustration out on the people around her. This has bitten her back very hard, with a small but steadily growing legion of heroes out for her blood for this, either for her direct involvement or that of her followers. Taking important guardian positions in Castlevania didn't help, and neither did taking up an "artistic career" in the Tokyo Sky Tower.
    • Nor is being picked amongst "The Dire", which put her at odds with Sven, and even occasionally Zeus. At the very least, she finds a bit of comfort that fellow Dire deity (and fellow snake-like at that), Lesale, has ascended.
  • There is one alternate myth of Medusa who willfully gave up her beauty to be transformed into a monster so that she could save her sisters. Also, that version actually prefers her stronger, monstrous form.
  • Fluttershy is one of the few deities presumably immune to her gaze, thanks to The Stare. Though, it has been demonstrated that The Stare may fizzle when used against very powerful beings, so Medusa just might have a chance.
    • The other one that Medusa would absolutely refuse to stare is Ghost Rider. He'd usually win in a staring contest leaving Medusa with heavy burns, the only reason she's not a vegetable yet was that she wasn't in complete control of her atrocities.
  • Extremely relieved with the ascension of Arachne, seeing that it's another being that Athena screwed over. They were plotting to actually ascend Athena but in a depowered state so they can exact vengeance.
    • They finally executed the plan, but... the "vengeance" part failed. However, there were rumors that Medusa is planning to slither her way to the Battleground of the Gods in the future. Eventually, armed with a bow and a white mask to stop her from petrifying her allies, she managed to slither in, also donning her serpentine lower body to further differentiate her with a certain other 'Medusa' that doesn't.
  • Medusa hatred isn't limited to just the Greek Gods, she hates every God that's in the Pantheon. Well, to be more precise, she hates the Gods who are considering Gods in their own world. She sees them as nothing but selfish and cruel beings.
  • Despite Medusa's antagonistic nature, there are some who do feel sorry for her predicament and think her punishment was unjust. Especially since she wasn't courted by Poseidon but was instead raped by him. And since Athena couldn't punish Poseidon, she instead directed her wrath towards Medusa.
  • Stays as far away from mirrors or shining shields since they are able to reflect Medusa's gaze right back at her.
  • Rumored to have dated Hercules once. Though, both deny it. Still, the Pantheon is attempting to recreate the sunglasses that if worn by Medusa, block her petrifying powers.
  • Once had a death match against Steven Irwin. Irwin won that match by accidentally decapitating her. Yes, accidentally as Irwin didn't want to kill her. He was actually happy that she ascended to the pantheon.
  • Her and Rider Medusa's relationship is a bit rocky. While Rider Medusa dislikes her for her action painting a bad picture to the Medusa name. Snake hair Medusa, on the other hand, dislikes her for still retaining her beauty. However, they both sympathize for one another over the fact they were both screws over by the gods.
  • Some deities are trying to give Medusa a beautiful appearance. She has declined the requests so far, especially if the petrification still remains.
  • Would on occasion petrify a Mook or Red Shirt and take them to her temple. She would then pretend to have a lively conversation with them. It's quite the depressing sight.

    Raigor Stonehoof 
Raigor Stonehoof, God of Seismic Devices (Earthshaker)
Binding of Deep Magma set 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The enchanted totem
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Fissure, Aftershock, Enchant Totem, Echo Slam, Dishing Out Dirt, Fissure creates a wall, carries a huge totem, Ground-Shattering Landing, A Form You Are Comfortable With, Magma Man (in Binding of Deep Magma set)
  • Domains: Earth, Seismic, Totem
  • Allies: Baine Bloodhoof, Thrall, Goliath, ETC, Toph Beifong
  • Rivals: Champions of Runeterra especially Darius and Vi, Sand King, Azmodan, Poseidon
  • Enemies: Sakazuki
  • Odd Friendship: Ancient Apparition
  • Opposed by: Phantom Lancer, those who relies on numbers, electric, fire, poison, rock, and steel type Pokémon
  • High Priest: Behemoth
  • A spirit made manifested into a physical form, he controls the very earth through his enchanted totem. His abilities include creating fissures and earthquakes from his totem and create seismic aftershocks.
    • Through an ancient totem deep in magma, Earthshaker could use it to control the magma and manipulate its power to amplify his abilities, in which the ability were changed as the result of its power.
  • It was once thought that he was a member of the Tauren race but his physical form only nearly resemble them. Nonetheless, he manage to get along with the Taurens.
    • He befriended the Orc shaman, Thrall, because of his friendship with the Tauren, though he criticized him for trying to steal his style (Sundering, anyone?)
  • He have made many stupid usage of his Fissure in which he blocks chasing which either save the enemy or trap their ally, block off special items which allowed the enemy to grab them, or isolating teams which give disadvantage in teamfights. But he's helping!
  • Because of his ability to deal more damage when there are more people in his range of Echo Slam, he is despised by those who use numbers to their advantage, especially Phantom Lancer. Even moreso when he gives a SIX MILLION DOLLAR ECHO SLAM with Ancient Apparition.
  • The master of dunking, he'll slam down the ground to deliver a powerful seismic reaction. And with the upgrade from the Aghanim's Scepter, he'll leap to literally dunk with his Enchant Totem. CHAOS DUNK!!!
    • He's a rival to Darius and Azmodan because they dunk their enemy as well, and they refuse to allow him to join their basketball team.
  • Back in the days, Lex Luthor once tried to steal an earthquake-creating machine. Nowaday, Lex figures that he could try again by stealing Earthshaker's totem to find out it's properties. The Earthshaker is not amused.
  • He is a friend of Goliath since he's happy to find a gargoyle in the Pantheon as he miss his old gargoyle friends at Nishai peaks. Everyone in the Pantheon are so soft.
  • The Behemoth of the Forests of Caldavar serves as his High Priests, but for some reason, Raigor can't seem to bring him to literally dunk. Especially after he learns the secret of Aghanim's Scepter. Still, he's satisfied that the Behemoth is still spreading his teachings.
  • He is not impressed with Poseidon, the god of the seas, especially since he is "stealing" his title and powers when Poseidon is capable of creating earthquakes.
  • "There may be many earths, but there's only one Earthshaker."

Sakazuki, God of Magma (Fleet Admiral, Akainu, the Red Dog)
  • Intermediate God (possibly Greater God as a Fleet Admiral)
  • Symbol: The emblem of the Marines
  • Theme: Red Dog Red
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil, though will insist he is Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Magma, Overkill, Insane Admiral, General Ripper, Undying Loyalty, Person of Mass Destruction
  • Domains: Magma, Lava, Law and Order, Justice
  • Allies: Nikolai, Inspector Jarvet
  • Rivals: Crixalis
  • Enemies: Over half of the House of Crime, the House of Villains, Monkey D. Luffy, Whitebeard, the Gokaigers, Portgas D. Ace, Popeye, Risky Boots.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Boa Hancock
  • A follower of the idea of "Absolute Justice", which says that anyone who's convicted of a crime should be wiped out of existence, down to blood relatives and children who may not even be aware of what their family member did wrong or that said family member was even related to them in the first place.
    • Sakazuki's first appearance took this to an extreme that earned him the ire of most of the good gods, when he annihilated a civilian ship that might have had a "dangerous criminal" (read: An eight years old Nico Robin) onboard who was guilty of the "crime" of investigating his world's unwritten "lost age". He adamantly refuses to admit that the last time he tried something similar to this, it started a second Golden Age of Piracy.
  • Is despised by nearly every pirate in the Pantheon, even the normally indifferent Crocodile. Both Luffy and Whitebeard hate him especially due to killing Portgas D. Ace, their adoptive brother and son respectively.
    • Despises all pirates in return, and goes to great lengths just to kill one.
  • Because of his mentality, he has continuously attacked the House of Crime, seeking to wipe all but a few choice gods out of existence. The House of Villains he intends to leave nothing alive. Naturally as one god he has made no significant progress, but is relentless all the same.
  • Due to the No-Holds-Barred Beatdown Whitebeard gave him in the mortal realm after the death of Portgas D. Ace, Sakazuki tends to avoid him.
  • Unlike his situation with Whitebeard, he intentionally seeks out Monkey D. Luffy. However, great efforts from other parties (including Luffy's own crew) have been made to ensure that the two aren't even in the same house together, much less the same room.
    • It eventually reached a breaking point when he decided to bring up the un-ascended Aokiji and Kizuru with the latter distracting the Straw Hat him while the former froze Luffy. His plan almost worked, but a Spanner in the Works appeared in possibly the worst way possible; Ace himself ascended to help defend Luffy, taking out Aokiji by himself and than, with Luffy, killing him. Once he woke up with the other 2 generals in the house of life and death, Ace has reunited with Whitebeard as well with Luffy bringing him there, more or less forcing Akainu to stop his assault on Luffy. He sent back the other 2 admirals in anger, and has been looking for allies for his next plan since, with little results, as the few offers he DOES get are often from those he is also looking out to kill, like Monokuma and his Mastermind.
  • Has found and recruited a few like minded gods in his campaign against "evil". Though it's believed that should he discover Nikolai's concept of justice is not truly as absolute as his own, he would not hesitate to eliminate him as well.
  • When Luffy heard about his ascension, he went on a rampage that wrecked much of the Pantheon, and had to be restrained by many members of the Main House in order to prevent him from encountering Sakazuki and quite possibly destroying the rest of the Pantheon. Whitebeard was similarly enraged and also had to be calmed down. Since then, the two have made attempts to avoid him lest they risk a similar incident.
  • Despite wearing red, having red-based power and having the same voice as Char Aznable, Sakazuki is still in training about how he can move three times faster than normal admirals.
  • One day, he decided to try and get Popeye to engage Luffy and used a bounty poster of the pirate to lure the sailor into fighting with him. To his horror, Popeye and Luffy actually respected each other, and are even flat out friendly towards each other. There WAS a fight, but it was much more cheerful than Akainu hoped for. He was trying to set up another plan to destroy the pirate, only for Popeye to burst open his temple door and scolded him for being such a terrible name to the marines themselves, even flat out calling him a dirty pirate in the process. In return for such an act, Akainu sees Popeye as a traitor to all sailors, and plans on getting rid of him as well. None of his attempts have provided a satisfying ending for the fleet admiral.

    Toph Beifong 
Toph Beifong, Goddess of Earth (Toph Bei Fong, The Blind Bandit, The Runaway)
As an adult and as a elder 
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: A Winged Boar or Badgermole
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolios: Earth, Cute Bruisers, Disability Superpowers, Snarky Comments, Living Lie Detectors, Stone-Facaded People Whose Hearts Soften Slightly, Bare Feet
  • Domains: Earth, Strength, Wealth, Truth
  • Followers: Kwame, Sherri Phoraena, Lexaeus, Cornelia Hale
  • Allies: Sokka, Avatar Aang, Katara, Iroh, Zuko, Lin Beifong (her daughter, formerly Teeth-Clenched Teamwork), Appa, Momo, Naga, Pabu, Avatar Korra, Asami Sato, Molly Hayes, Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Snake, Mio Sasuga {of the Masou Kishin Heralds}, Captain Planet, Bloody Marie, Crixalis, Kenshi Takahashi, Domino
  • Friendly Rivalry: Gaara
  • Approves of: Greed the Avaricious
  • Toph is not blind. She is merely physically incapable of seeing anything less awesome than she is. Don't believe us? She's the greatest earthbender in the world. She taught Avatar Aang how to earthbend when he needed to master the elements in a year to save the world. And she pioneered the art of metalbending. All at the mere age of twelve.
    • Okay, on a serious note, she actually was born blind, and she makes clever jokes about it all the time. It's why she goes shoeless; she's fine-tuned her earthbending to be able to use her feet on the ground to "see" things. She was even part of a group called the Blind Trinity at one point.
  • Is on very good terms with Iroh, but the rest of the Gods have forbidden her to get too close to him, for they fear that so much concentrated awesome could put in danger the foundations of the Pantheon.
  • Loves wrestling, and actually has participated in a few tournaments in the House of Combat. Many of them were unsure whether or not to fight a little blind girl…until she kicked their asses without any trouble.
  • Did we mention how she loves to proclaim that she's "THE GREATEST EARTHBENDER IN THE WORLD!" yet? She's not lying.
  • She's also recently opened a metalbending school for those who'd like to learn how to do it. It ends up being passed on to the point that metalbending becomes the primary skill of the Republic City Police. Ask Lin.
  • She's been scheduled for a Death Battle against Gaara.
    • She actually won. Gaara himself actually congratulated her, and said he would learn from the experience. Though Gaara did end up scolding her about intruding on sacred grounds, Toph was impressed he still stood up to her and so she bumped fists with him, later saying she "wouldn't mind hanging out with the sandbag again."
    • Unfortunately, some of Gaara's supporters are incensed at the result of the fight, saying that Gaara wasn't at his best in the confrontation. Gaara doesn't really care, and neither does Toph. However, she was feeling trollish enough to say this:
      Toph: All these minerals in the ground, and you chumps want to be salty!
    • She caught the eye of Bloody Marie during this time, due to her voice sounding just like hers. Surprisingly enough, Toph actually doesn't mind hanging around the Skullgirl, claiming the Skull Heart's got nothing she wants. Apparently, she reminds Marie quite a lot of Peacock back when she was still Patricia…
  • In her later years, Toph becomes Republic City's Chief of Police, has two daughters, each with a different man, and raises them the exact opposite of how her parents raised her: too loosely instead of too strict. So one becomes too loose with the rules and gets wrapped up with criminal friends while the other becomes too rigid and follows her in enforcing the law. They come to blows, she tries to wash it away, and suddenly no one's talking for 20 years. Eventually they get around to starting working things out…during the advent of the legend of Korra as the new Avatar, and all play a part in Korra's adventures. The point to this? The rigid daughter, Lin, is now in the Pantheon's House of Leadership.
    • And there's already a man that's interested in Lin, of whom Lin herself is suspicious but Toph approves. His name is Greed, and he is a homunculus in the House of Power who owns a bar, can turn his own body into steel, rebelled against his evil family like her good friend Zuko did, and most importantly, Toph can know this, tells no lies. Except when he needs to sacrifice himself to protect those he cares for, but that hasn't come up yet.
  • There's been talks on getting her to learn how to read. Besides Braille, which doesn't exist in her world, given that her seismic sense is sensitive enough to sense the tiniest contours on things, including ants in the dirt, why not physical marks in paper? And the paper wouldn’t even need to be in view. Wouldn’t need to be facing her. Wouldn’t need to be OPEN. Just would have to be near enough with enough vibrations running through it for Toph to feel it out. Sokka can see the advantages, since who would expect a blind person to be able to read written messages?

Lesser Gods

Baragon, the Tunnel King (Subterranean Monster, God of Earth, Varagon, Sea Baragon)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A sihoulette of himself
  • Theme Music: His theme from Godzilla: Unleashed or GMK
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Tunnel King, Acrofatic, Determinator, Spring Jump, Big Eater, Dishing Out Dirt, Everything's Better with Dinosaurs, has a glowing horn
  • Domains: Monsters, Tunnels, Girth
  • Followers: Taizo Hori, Muddy, Molier, Najarala
  • Allies: Godzilla (except in one instance), Anguirus, Rodan, Mothra Leo, Tyranitar, Simon the Digger, Korra, Raleigh Becket & Mako Mori
  • Rival: Anub'arak
  • Enemies: Frankenstein's Monster, King Ghidorah (except in one instance), Gigan, The Lich, Mesogog, Indominus Rex, SpaceGodzilla
  • A number of tunnel passageways was found throughout the Pantheon, all of them leading to the House of Nature. When the witnesses found out who created these tunnels, they decided to give the creature a fitting title.
  • Much of Baragon's strengths lie within his ability to dig. This is also helped with a glowing horn and the ability to breathe fire. On a bad day, he can get pretty hungry, so you should probably not meet up with him during these instances.
  • Not particularly happy to see Frankenstein's Monster again. The fact that The Creature may have another form in addition to the one Baragon fought against back then only made the Subterranean Monster very upset. No one can say for certain how a battle between Baragon and Berserker of Black will play out.
  • Apparently, he was able to use his tunneling skills to survive the extinction of dinosaurs. Baragon was practically livid upon hearing that The Lich was responsible for killing dinosaurs (at least in his respective universe). Whether or not Baragon can survive The Lich's dinosaur-killing comet by digging underground is hard to say in the least.
  • Baragon is in a bit of a rivalry with Anub'arak, largely because they are skilled at digging underground passageways. A number of deities are looking forward to a serious battle between the two.
  • Some scientists discovered that there was another form of Baragon with the DNA of walruses and narwhals known as Sea Baragon. Compared to regular Baragon, the sea variant relies exclusively on close-quarters combat.
  • For all of Baragon's tendencies to eat quite a bit (mainly cattle and humans) whenever in a foul mood, he finds the destruction caused by Indominus Rex to be too much.
  • Mesogog reportedly took an interest in Baragon's abilities and is seeing if he can recreate them through his creations. Naturally, Baragon has taken offense in the dinosaur scientist and is making sure it won't happen.
  • Whenever he is in a particularly good mood, Baragon will occassionally help others navigate the underground world with his glowing horn.
  • Has been seen side-by-side with Simon the Digger, likely given their digging abilities. While both are on good terms for the time being, Simon won't hesitate to fight against Baragon should the latter be in a bad mood and take the anger out on innocents. Given both of their determination, a battle between the two of them will take a while.
  • Some are considering Baragon to be a possible means of a counter against Godzilla should the latter ever get out of control. The idea came from Baragon fighting against him once and while he wasn't successful in defeating him that time, at least he tried.

Barroth, God of Mud-Covering (Landslide Wyvern)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: Its Hunter's Guild icon
  • Theme Song: Earth Sand and Fiery Winds
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Covering Itself (And Others) in Mud, Head Hard As Solid Rock, Charging At Potential Foes, Almost literal Stone Wall, Tyrannosaurus rex What Is Actually a Wyvern, Barrier Change Boss
  • Domains: Mud, Wyverns, Charging, Deserts, Bogs
  • Size: 1237.9cm - 1744.3cm
  • Allies: Swampert
  • Enemies: House of Insects, All Bug-Type Pokemon, Seltas and Seltas Queen, Ahtal-Ka, those wanting to weaponize it
  • Opposed by: the Monster Hunters, Agitha, Sig
  • Opposes: The House of Ice & Cold, ice-related deities, wielders of fire (to a lesser extent)
  • Herald: Jyuratodus
  • A creature native to hot deserts, Barroth is known to roll in mud to most likely cool itself off. Because it's nostrils are located at the top of its head, it can spend extensive periods of time submerged in mud. Though mostly docile, should someone intrude on its territory or if it feels threatened the Barroth can shake it off to cover its predators in mud to make it harder to move, before charging right at them with its stone hard head. It first made its appearance near a mud pool where it headbutted nearby denizens (who wished to remain anonymous) for arguing nearby and thus disturbing it.
  • It makes its home in this very House and rarely leaves, being very accustomed to the hot and sandy lands. Besides living in deserts, Barroth also can live in bogs. It spends a lot of time around Swampert's area of inhabitant because of this reason. Barroth actually provides good security due to its territorial nature, deterring those who wish harm on either of them. Its odd, considering what the Pokemon is capable of dishing out and Barroth's own weakness when in mud.
    • Due to its weaknesses it always avoids the Ice & Cold as its really out of its element there. To a lesser extent, it avoids the Fire & Heat as its weak to fire without its mud armor. With it, its somewhat okay but the place is far from a suitable environment.
  • While Barroth itself might be in much lower league than other Monster Hunter deities residing in the Pantheon (its hard compete against a Brute Wyvern that causes explosions or a Super Saiy- er, a really aggressive Fanged Beast), it still provides enough of a challenge to shock unsuspecting deities.
  • Its Herald is the Piscine Wyvern Jyuratodus, who can be pretty much found somewhat near Barroth's mud territories. We say somewhat as, because they are natural rivals with each other in the New World, frequently beat the shit out of each other if either intrude on each other's territory. If anything, the Mud Fish Wyvern is sometimes seen trying to usurp the Barroth's position but such attempts haven't really gone anywhere besides trying to take on the thing. One wonders why the Jyuratodus was made Herald in the first place since there's barely any loyalty from it.
  • Despite its intimidating appearance reminiscent of a Tyrannosaurus Rex merged with rocks, Barroth is actually an insectivore. As such, it is known to attack House of Insects if it gets too hungry. It always eventually gets driven off by the higher level deities within there, but it always manage to chow down on someone, even a little bite. The House is currently trying to appeal to more defenses in the near future. Outside of that, it also frequently fights against the Seltas duo not only for food but also out of territory as well. It tried the same with Ahtal-Ka, but it didn't go so well.
    • Its choice of meals raised issues with the likes of Agitha and Sig, who are well-known fanatics for bugs and don't appreciate it ruining their activities. There are times where the Barroth can be seen tailing them to find its next source of food. Sig actually has fought the Landslide Wyvern before, although the only benefits both sides gained from an encounter was some scratches for the Barroth and a blanket of mud for Sig.
  • It has a cousin of sort called Jade Barroth. It is hardly seen in the Pantheon as instead of mud, it covers itself in snow, hence why its not officially ascended alongside its regular counterpart. More or less, its a side effect of its ascension. That doesn't subtract from the danger it brings, since it always for a U-turn after its charges meaning you have to employ the teachings of the Prometheus School of Running Away From Things. This catches a lot of people off guard, sometimes more than once.
  • One of many potential monsters that can be raised and bonded with in another adventure. It got a few deities thinking considering the power it can bring with a Kinship Stone, leading to some finding similar substitutes while others went to work to control it in other ways. The Monster Hunters are greatly opposed to the later since someone tried it before, and it's seen as pretty horrible. Others agree after the incident with the Zamtrios and the Frickin' Laser Beams mounted on its head. The Barroth seems to understand this, acknowledging its defenders and does try to aid them.


How well does it match the trope?
