    AJ Styles 
AJ Styles, God of Popularity Power (Allen Jones, The Phenomenal One, The Original Mr. TNA, The Face that Runs The Place, Mr. Olympia III, The Best Wrestler in the World, Prince of Phenomenal)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/feature2.jpg
  • Hates: YHVH and most of the Grand United Allegiance of Law
  • Worthy Opponent: John Cena (yes, seriously), Kofi Kingston {The New Day}
  • Respects: Ric Flair, The Rock
  • Conflicting Opinion: Hulk Hogan
  • Not to be Confused With: AJ Lee, Applejack (aka AJ)
  • AJ Styles joins the Pantheon thanks to his incredible popularity with the audience; no matter the role he takes in the wrestling ring, the fans will gravitate to his skills and to his cause. This is because he has consistently been one of the top 5 wrestlers in the world in any given year for over a decade as well as the heart and soul of whatever operation he puts himself into.
  • With his ascension, he will become the harbinger for original talents of both TNA and ROH, since he checked that the Pantheon is already filled with WWE superstars and so far, Vince McMahon hasn't picked him yet.
    • Speaking of former WWE talent, he's verily impressed to see both the Hardy Brothers and Colt Cabana in the Pantheon. He's not sure about Matt's BROKEN phase though…
      • And now he's learned that the Hardys have left TNA. He's not sure how to react if he ever has to fight BROKEN Matt in a "Final Deletion"-esque setting.
  • To the shock of, well everyone, he's officially a WWE Superstar, joining the company as the 3rd entrant in the 2016 Royal Rumble much to the shock of gods like Roman Reigns. He was unfortunately eliminated near the end. At the next day, Styles fought against Chris Jericho, and won.
  • Has no regrets for his time working with both Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan, in fact he still maintains a healthy respect for Flair despite their falling out at the end of Fortune. However, there's one person AJ prefers to not bring up: Dixie Carter. He seemed to be reconsidering the Carter matriarch after she apologized for her past faults, even shutting up her own entitled nephew Ethan Carter III, but ultimately does not have much glowing praise for her or TNA management in general at the end of the day.
  • Bray Wyatt is considering inducing him to the Wyatt Family, however he's aware that Wyatt is convincing him to return in his "Lone Wolf" persona. Styles, determined as always, is prepared for a match. The fact that Bray Wyatt's actions remind him of his old friend James Storm, who once formed a cult-like revolution some time after Styles left TNA, adds more fuel to the fire.
  • Expect him to get cheered most of the time in his matches for the Pantheon Wrestling Federation, no matter each time Vince Russo tries to swerve the outcome.
  • When he ventured into the House of Personality one day, he was honestly confused as to why gods kept saying "AJ is best pony". Then he met with Applejack and just slowly nodded his head as if fully understanding it. From then on, the two make sure to call each other by their full names.
  • As a Christian, he absolutely 'detests YHVH for perverting the idea of faith itself and has sworn to never be involved in the GUAL. Upon finding that God was in the Pantheon though, he made his way to his temple and performed the sign of the cross out of respect.
    • Because of this, he does not like it whenever someone makes fun of his religion. Upon hearing Steve Austin quote his famous "Austin 3:16" speech, apparently not even knowing what it actually was, he stormed toward to Austin and stated:
    ''Don't you ever...EVER mock my Jesus."
    • He later realized what the line really meant and apologized for it.
  • Has told John Cena that he will never be as good as The Rock in the movie business or himself in the ring, and has taken offense to Cena wanting to beat him and become a 16-time world champion as that would have him tied with Ric Flair's official recognized title stats. Later came to see Cena as a Worthy Opponent after John accomplished the feat.
  • While he takes wrestling losses well, video game losses are a whole different story. He's known to be a bit of a Sore Loser in that regard and has been known to smash controllers in fits of anger. The House of Gaming looked in worry on something called the "Six Days of Smashmus" that was him celebrating via destroying video game controllers with an absolutely fury.
  • Has gotten very very aggravated at being the target for a Groin Attack. The next person who does it is getting punched in the face.
  • Has raised respect for Kofi Kingston of the New Day after Kofi ran through a hellacious Gauntlet Match for over an hour, pinning the likes of Daniel Bryan (the World Champion), Randy Orton and Jeff Hardy before going against AJ Styles who was practically telling Kofi that he had proved his worth. Kofi refused and the two had an epic brawl that, after Styles finally defeated Kingston, caused the audience to applaud in a standing ovation.
  • "I AM the House of Popularity. This is The House That A. J. Styles. Built!"

    Hayden Tenno 
Hayden Tenno, God of Following Popular Trends
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tenno.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Technocyte Glaive
  • Theme Song: Dark Sector Title Theme
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral initially, nowadays he is either Chaotic Neutral or Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Infected with the Technocyte Virus, Barrier Warrior, Deadly Disc, Has Congenital Analgesia which is why he doesn't go insane from Technocyte exposure
  • Domains: Agents, Viruses, Missions, Morality, Betrayal, Popularity
  • Allies: The Tenno, Alex Mason, Alexei Stukov, Mamori Tokonome and Mirei Shikishima, Ikoma and Mumei, Marcus Fenix, Leon S. Kennedy, The Merchant
  • Enemies: The Technocyte Infested, The Grineer, The Corpus, Alex Mercer, Nikita Dragovich, Albert Wesker, Edward Richtofen
  • CIA Agent Hayden Tenno has been deployed in the eastern european country of Lasria with the orders of gathering information about an epidemic known as The Technocyte Virus, which has driven all people infected to mutate into metallic monstruosities which is extremely painful and drive them insane. Agent Tenno was unfortunate to get infected by the mysterious Nemesis stabbing his arm and transforming it, but given his lack of pain reception he was able to resist the mental strains of the virus and use it for his advantage. What happened to Tenno after he succeeded in his mission is unknown but after years of being missing, he showed up in the pantheon, looking for a place to relax.
  • It is believed that Hayden could very well be the first Tenno, even though the group weren't even created until centuries later. But after learning of Hayden's existence, the Tenno welcomed him to their ranks and consider Hayden to be an honorary member of their faction.
    • However, they were worried that the virus that inhabits Hayden's body is the Technocyte and they already a different group called the Infested before. Hayden wasn't even aware that the virus evolved and was used by the Orokin empire, but it works very differently. They are glad that at least Hayden can control his infection and even opposes the influence of their universe's Technocyte Infestation, going so far as to kill many of their numbers when they tried to take him by force.
  • Needless to say, given his ties to the Tenno, that Hayden has also been targetted by both the Grineer and the Corpus. One because they see interest in a seemingly human individual who happens to control a variation of Technocyte and use it for their forces while the Corpus are solely interested in acquiring a sample of Technocyte and sell it to the highest bidder.
  • Given his control over his infected arm and taking advantage of other perks the Technocyte Virus has brought to him, Hayden actually made quite a few allies who possess a Beneficial Disease just like him.
    • The strangest one would be Alexei Stukov, him being russian would certainly bring some animosity between the two but surprisingly, since both were screwed over by others and had to deal with their respective mutations, they hold a great deal of respect for each other.
    • He finds Mamori's and Mirei's virus to be unorthodox and fairly bizarre but he sees that it can be useful and so they have trained together from time to time, not to mention they are trying to mimick Hayden's control over his glaive.
    • Then he also met another duo in the form of Ikoma and Mumei, who also are came into contact with infected creatures and are now immune to their effects, even able to use some to their advantage just like him. They find his fighting style impressive and decided to take some pointers from him
  • As his title would imply he takes a lot of inspirations from different popular characters, with Marcus Fenix and Leon Kennedy being the biggerst influences for Hayden. He sympathizes with Leon given they status as goverment agents and understand Marcus on how war can mess someone up.
  • Suffers from Congenital Analgesia, which makes Hayden be unable to feel pain or at least be aware of it. This is actually the primary reason why the Technocyte didn't mutate him all the way, since it's implied that the virus is very painful to those infected by it.
  • Fellow CIA agent Alex Mason became a close friend of Hayden after learning about their similar pasts about failed missions and being guinea pigs for other people, particularly their respective antagonists. Considering how he brainwashed Mason and the history behind his use of Nova 6, Nikita Dragovich is someone Hayden detest with all his heart.
  • Usually gets his weapon bought from a Black Market weapons dealer but he has been unable to contact him in the pantheon. Luckily for him, he ran into the Merchant, who has access to all the weaponry Hayden never even thought of getting his hands on. Since he heard good things from his buddy Leon, he often looks for the Merchant whenever he needs to get a new weapon.
  • Many theorize that Hayden's virus could very well be similar to that of Alex Mercer, something that didn't go unnoticed by the later. In fact, he is very curious about Hayden and could possibly benefit a lot from absorbing him. Unfortunately, Tenno proved to be too elusive for the Prototype and has escaped him numerous times, something that infurates Mercer.
  • Unfortunately for Tenno, he has been hit by a surprise attack from both Albert Wesker and Edward Richtofen in an attempt to get ahold of the Technocyte and use it for their nefarious purposes. Luckily, the Tenno were alerted and came quikcly to the aid of Hayden, fighting off both Wesker and Richtofen until they were forced to retreat. Both swear that this is not over and that Hayden Tenno will become theirs eventually.

    James Howlett / Wolverine 

James Howlett, God of Hand Claws and Character Publicity (Wolverine, Best There Is At What He Does, Wolvie, Logan, Huge Jackman, The Vicious Anti-Hero of the X-Men)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wolverene.jpg
  • Theme Music: Combo of his MVC and MVC3 theme.
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His fist pointing upward with his Adamantium Claws extended.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good, Chaotic Neutral in his first appearances.
  • Portfolio: Code Names, Ensemble Darkhorses, Genius Bruisers, Those Who Shoot the Dog (Not his brother), Those Who are Fueled by Rage, Those With Endlessly Convoluted Histories, Those Who Are Fortunate Enough to Recover From Anything, Retractable Claws on Hand
  • Domains: Bestial, Chaos, Darkness, Fury, Wrath, Regeneration
  • Follower: Wolfgang Grimmer
  • Allies: X-23, Professor X, Molly Hayes, Storm, Thor, Human Torch, Captain America, Elektra, Spider-Man, Daredevil, Cable and Domino
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Hulk (In Savage Mode), Cyclops, Emma Frost, Spock, Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider
  • Friendly Enemies With: Magneto
  • Annoyed By: Deadpool
  • Special Relationship: Jean Grey/Phoenix
  • No X-Men is as well known as the Canadian killing machine known as James Howlett, also known as 'Logan' and codenamed the Wolverine. This popularity is often for better or for worse. On the one hand, he has brought about unprecedented popularity for his team, especially during The '90s. On the other hand, he is seen as the poster boy of what's wrong with the current state of comics: a character who wishes for The Dark Age of Comic Books while changing little in how to deal with people. With his claws through someone's guts. As such, he can be seen as both a popular ''and'' unpopular figure. This does not mean he has his moments of brilliance. He has had popular runs in both the comics and films. It will be up to him and his creators if he can properly balance his savagery with Character Development.
  • Despite his questionaly publicity, Logan will always be associated with the X-Men and the mutants associated with it:
    • It may come to a surprise to many when he states that he wasn't wasn't an original member or that he didn't even debut in an X-Men comic. He was instead part of a new team of X-Men to save the old guard. This group has proven to be a popular bunch, with Nightcrawler, Storm and Colossus ascending after him. He is still friends with all of them in differing ways; He considers the 'elf' to be one of his best friends. Ororo helped to calm him down during his berserker states and has even dated him. And Pietro has enjoyed the camaraderie between the two.
    • Of course no rivalry has shaped him than that of Scott Summers, also known as Cyclops. It has ebbed and flowed throughout their time together. In some instances, they are able to tolerate each other. But there has more than a few instances where their rivalry exploded into exchanging blows. Among grievances include pinning over Jean Grey (with the pairing with Logan and Jean gaining popularity after the Ultimate X-Men and live action films), Logan's callout against using kids as weapons leading to the Schism of the team and Logan's allegiance to the Avengers over the X-Men when the two teams battled it out. The cusp of it all is that Wolverine's popularity was coming at the cost of that of the X-Men (and especially Cyclops in particular). Logan responded that Scott was just too boring to carry a team by himself. As of right now, the two are trying to regain traction after disappearing for a while.
    • As stated above, his relationship with Jean Grey is... complicated. It also depends on the medium they were in. There have been an increasing amount of mediums depicting them as a couple. Both decided that it would be better that the two not to pursue such a thing in the Pantheon to keep the peace within the X-Men.
    • Avoids Magneto whenever possible (while they're not allying). Man with metal skeleton trying to fight man who controls metal generally means a one-sided fight. Erik even tore off his adamantium skeleton at one time (revealing that it's his claws and regeneration that's his mutant powers).
    • Despite his gruff nature, he has a definite soft spot for teenage girls. He's more protective and considerate of them than of anyone else, starting with Shadowcat and continuing with Jubilee. Both achieved ascension and hang out with him on occasion.
    • Is one of the few X-Men to call out Professor X whenever he does a morally ambiguous act. It's not because Wolverine thought it was wrong, just that he wishes the telepath to set a high standard than himself.
    • Rogue counts as that as well... depending on the medium.
  • Many find his rivalry with Spider-Man amusing. As far as cameos go, Spider-Man is the only one in his world that can match the number of times Wolverine has teamed up with someone. Of course, they don't really like pairing up with each other. Spider-Man can get on a lot of people's nerves, but he just happens to know how to raise Wolvie's blood pressure.
  • Logan's relation with Captain America is... complex. It was rumored that the two had met even before Cap froze in ice. While Logan is thankful for handing a spot in the Avengers, he laments Caps insistence in not killing anybody, even those he believes deserve it.
  • His first adventure was a bout against the Hulk. The two made amends later on, but the two remain distrustful of each other. It shows with their subsequent fights between each other.
    • Oddly enough, they were amiable enough to work with Spider-Man and Ghost Rider to replace the Fantastic Four when they thought the group died. The group was formidable, but none of the four think they could keep up as a team without under duress.
  • Molly Hayes has stated that Logan was her favorite X-Men. Even when she was disappointed about his attitude when they first met, she still tries to visit him.
  • Wolverine was one of the first superheroes Ms. Marvel visited upon her ascension. She has constantly stated how Logan is one of her favorites in her world. The appreciation wasn't exactly mutual for him. While he has learned to tolerate her, he tries his best to avoid the inevitable superhero teamup.
  • Baraka holds a similar position for his blades, but Logan doesn't like the Tarkian at all, especially for his insistence in conquering Earthrealm. One can expect the two to fight many times.
  • Worked with Captain Kirk and the Enterprise when they were confronted by the Imperial Guard. It was there that he had an altercation with the Vulcan Spock. A tussle ensued, and he was laid low by the Vulcan Neck Pinch... for a few seconds thanks to his regeneration abilities. The two haven't traded blows since, but neither like the others' company.
  • He usually just retort to an annoyed eyebrow raise when people think his theme song sounds like the Power Rangers theme song.
  • Once went on an adventure across Los Santos with Joel.
  • Was chosen as a combatant to fight Raiden to the death. Wolverine is confident about his victory, although he is also wary of Raiden's HF blade lest it can weaken his Adamantium skeleton's molecular bonds. Too bad it does cut through Adamantium, and thus Wolverine's head got cut by Raiden's Blade Spam into pieces.
  • Some nerds wonder if his claws can cut Superman. He likely can, though at best it merely means Supes is not invulnerable to Wolverine's claws. The Man of Steel might still be able to overpower Wolverine, though.
  • Biologists are also baffled by the size of Wolverine's claws in proportion to his body (not that they'll say it in his face). Of course, given his attitude and his history as a test subject, nobody's willing to ask him to lie down and be researched.
  • Domino and Logan both confirmed that Dom got "lucky" with him during a case with the Hand and the Assassin's Guild. The motel room was trashed, but both parties were left very satisfied. Logan went on record saying that he's up for a repeat performance...just without people shooting at him. "Ruins the mood, an' it makes me grumpy," he said.
  • Also present in House of Weaponized Appendages.
  • "I'm the best there is at what I do. But what I do best isn't very nice."

    Tremor 
Tremor, God of Playable Promotion
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tremormkx2.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Black Dragon emblem
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil. True Neutral off the clock.
  • Portfolio: Adorkable, Affably Evil, Ascended Extra, Badass Baritone, The Big Guy, Breakout Character, The Comically Serious, Extra-ore-dinary, Even Evil Has Standards, Guttural Growler, Mistaken for Scorpion, Taken for Granite
  • Domains: Earth, Mercenaries, Crime, Playable Characters, Popularity, Coolness
  • Allies: Gaara, Diancie, Heathran, Regirock, Deadpool
  • Rivals: Scorpion, Toph Beifong
  • Enemies: Jax Briggs, Sonya Blade, Cassie Cage (Although he is willing to spare them), Kotal Khan, Fleet Admiral Sakazuki
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Kano
  • Respects: Johnny Cage, Geb
  • Odd Friendship: Leon
  • What seemed to be at first just a quirky underling of Kano, Tremor made a huge impression after he fought Jax Briggs given his earth control powers. Eventually he lost the fight and died, but he wasn't forgotten and in the new timeline, the story of Tremor took a radical turn. After Kano sent him to retrieve an item in the Dream Realm, Tremor's powers being exposed to that realm increased their strength, enough that it is said his power rivals those of Raiden and Fujin, two demigods. After that, Tremor appeared among the pantheon ranks, triumphally claiming the title of Playable Promotion.
  • For a Black Dragon Clan member, he is actually not that bad even being very affable towards his foes and even willing to let some retreat. That doesn't mean he doesn't want to crush the ascended Special Forces members Sonya Blade and Jax Briggs. He especially wants some payback with Jax given his death in the original timeline and this time he is going all out.
    • Unexpectedly, he seems to unironically enjoy Johnny Cage's movies enough to respect the man himself in combat. Cage does consider him a dangerous threat but appreaciates his support.
  • His relationship with Kano has been strained given his rather...shady ways he goes around. They seem to tolerate the other enough to at least work together, but he has quit being a Black Dragon (at least in the pantheon) and has stated that he plans to off Kano before he departs.
  • His impressive earthbending skills haven't gone unnoticed and he sometimes can be found in the House of Nature honing his skills. He considers Toph Beifong a Worthy Opponent and their bouts have ended in stalemates multiple times, most impressive is that they also have control over metal (As demonstrated by Tremor's Metallic variation and Toph's metalbending). He respects Geb for being an ancient deity of earth elementals and hopes to one day match his strength.
    • He also has Crystalline variation where he can adopt moves based on crystals. This drew the attention of Diancie who was perplexed by their similar appearances. Tremor and Diancie actually became good friends, to everyones surprises and he seems to be super protective of the Pokemon, to the point that if Diancie gets in serious trouble, he won't hesitate to come to her aid.
  • Sometimes can also be seen in the hottest places of Nature, probably assuming his Aftershock form to practice. There he also found Heathran and confronted the creature to see if it had some combat in it. He wasn't dissapointed and ended up befriending the creature, strangely enough.
    • He also heard of Fleet Admiral Sakazuki, a man with a fearsome reputation and even more fearsome powers. Tremor also challenged him to a fight to see if he the rumors were true and ultimately ended on a stalemate. Though their conflict didn't end there, as Akainu clearly wants to terminate Tremor for his connection with the Black Dragon clan and won't rest until he finishes him off.
  • While he might be better and more morally upstanding than his partner Kano, Tremor at the end of the day is still a criminal and mercenary and is judged as such. He has some received some job offers from the likes of Shadaloo, HYDRA and the Regime but he usually prefers to take smaller jobs, even if those don't bother him that much.
  • Once got to work with Deadpool and surprisingly, Tremor was able to tolerate his constant talking without too much trouble. Well, until he started to bother him about his old look and Tremor decide to crush the merc with the mouth with his Stone Tomb. Of course, that didn't kill him but it kept him quite for a few minutes.
  • Used to be confused for Scorpion in the past. A lot. So it's understandable why the two are rivals, besides their contrasting elements. The next person who will mention that he resembles Scorpion will get their bones crushed though.
  • Has some degree of respect for Leon, who also like him was Saved by the Fans. Initially though Leon didn't have a high opinion of Tremor considering his ties with Kano but since Tremor showed to be quite the honorable fighter he ended up also respecting him in return.
  • He seems to be closely connected to the House of Dreams, possibly since his powers increased after being exposed to the Dream Realm for so long. But the reason he visits the house is entirely unknown.
  • Can also be found in Game Characters.

  • Domains: Lonliness, Friendship, Ghosts
  • Allies: Casper, Banette, The House of Friendship (particular Teddie), Team Rocket, The Cutie Mark Crusaders, ppPantheon/Emotion Raven]]f
  • Enemies: Metal deities
  • Envies: Pikachu
  • The Disguise Pokemon Mimikyu has seen how popular Pikachu is and how many friends Pikachu has and thought to her self that if she dressed up like Pikachu, then Mimikyu would be able to have lots of friends too.
    • After learning Mimikyu's reasons for dressing like Pikachu, many deities wanted to become friends with Mimikyu, either because they felt sorry for her, or because they took and interest in her. The Avatars of Friendship gave her a party, a hug, a handshake (or "Tail" shake) and a promise to be there for her when she needs it.
  • While having ones neck snapped would be inconvenient to many people, whenever Mimikyu's diguise gets busted, Mimikyu's more sad about having its neck snapped because her costume could get torn.
    • While Mimikyu would much rather dress like Pikachu, sometimes unforeseen circumstances, Mimikyu's Pikachu costume gets damaged so Mimikyu has wear costumes based off other characters.
  • There used to be many deities who were really curious about what Mimikyu looked like under her costumes, but upon hearing stories of the last person dying from shock after seeing what Mimikyu looked like, a lot of deities abandoned their curiosity.
  • Even though Mimikyu has made a lot of good friends since her ascension, Mimikyu's developed a particularly strong bond with Koume Shirasaka due to her love of spooky things, going so far as to find zombies cute.
  • While Mimikyu has made a lot of friends since ascending, Mimikyu became friends with the Cutie Mark Crusaders since they came up with the idea of Mimikyu finding the one thing that she excels at so that she can make even more friends. Gods are just more interested as to how long it will take for the ponies to invite Mimikyu to see their wrestling friends.
    • That day eventually did come, and Mimikyu finds herself watching horror movies in the House of Vampires every now and then.
  • Despite a lot of deities no longer having an interest in Mimikyu's true form for fear of their lives, Mimikyu developed a close friendship with Raven due to her also having a true form that would terrify a normal person.

Regular Al
Cheese Sandwich 
Wreck-Gar 
  • Theme Song: Dare To Be Stupid
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: An Accordion. As Cheese Sandwich, it's his cutie mark (two halves of a cheese sandwich with gooey strings of cheese)
  • Portfolio: Affectionate Parody that are more remembered than the original, Satire, Parody and Pastiche, Those Who Are White And Nerdy
  • Domain: Parody, Accordions.
  • Allies: Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Coolio (after a long rivalry), Pinkie Pie, Optimus Prime, Johnny Bravo
  • Opposed by: Eminem, Prince
  • If there's a song to be written, Weird Al will find a way to make it funny by changing the words to include easy-to-recognize pop-culture references. He scoffs at the Friedberg/Seltzer directing team for taking the shotgun approach to parody by throwing out unrelated references to see what sticks.
  • He also has the magic ability to turn nearly any song into some form of polka mix. all he needs is his divine accordion.
  • Morrigan Aensland once tried to seduce him, but when he noticed that one of her teeth was 0.0019 milimeters smaller than the others, he simply replied with the following line before calmly walking away: "You're close, but no cigar!".
  • Al is, however polite enough to ask before he parodies the work of someone else in the House of Music, even though the Higher Gods agreed he isn't legally obligated to. Usually this is considered a high honor, as Weird Al normally doesn't parody a song unless its enormously popular. Different deities have different feelings about his making parodies of his work, though. For example, Michael Jackson always found him Actually Pretty Funny, and is happy to allow him to continue to parody his work. However, Eminem snubbed him, and instead Weird Al did a scathing parody interview.
  • Al has been petitioning to get his pet Harvey the Wonder Hamster ascended as God of Hamsters, but no luck so far.
  • His temple is modeled after the set of The Weird Al Show, and is situated twenty miles below the Earth's surface.
  • A pony version of him known as Cheese Sandwich can sometimes be seen. This version of Al hangs out with the Equestrian gods, particularly Pinkie Pie, to make amazing parties.
    • A Transformer known as Wreck-Gar has also hanged out, who has been trying to find his purpose in life. One thing is for sure, everyone knows that Wreck-Gar "dares to be stupid."
      • And now, there's a young boy named "Milo Murphy", descendant of the man who coined "Murphy's Law" that causes unexplainable mayhem wherever he goes. This avatar has become friendly with both Phineas and Ferb.
      • Yet another version of him can be seen, this one the most bizzare of them all- a banana named Dr. Screwball Jones, a villain who wants to force happiness onto others. Wander really doesn't like him.
  • Is very impressed that Joseph Joestar would know in good details about his works.
  • Alongside Don Knotts and the Blue Falcon, Al attempted to do a makeover on Johnny Bravo and his show, although the changes weren't well-received by the target demographic. Nowadays, Johnny doesn't mind Al, but makes sure to keep him away from his hairdo.

  • Elvis Aaron Presley is the Mississippi born, Tennessee raised son of common southern folk Gladys Love and Vernon Presley. Surviving his stillborn twin and a devastating hurricane storm, they believed the kid was gonna be Born Lucky. As it turns out they were right; he would rise fast in the fifties as one of the greatest music artists of the era, and certainly one of the most iconic. After decades of shaking his hips for the angels(though some would argue he's been in hiding), the first true rock star returns in the Trope Pantheon.
  • Known as the King of Rock and Roll, or simply "The King". He hates this phrase due to being a rather religious man, or as he puts "there's only one God, and He sure don't dress like me". Him and Ned Flanders got on surprisingly well for someone judged Too Hot for TV, though given he's got a big Beatles connection this isn't that unexpected.
    • Furthermore, Elvis actually even rejects being called the King of Rock n' Roll. When asked who he thinks it is, he says that it was Antoine "Fats" Domino Jr. In fact, Elvis claimed the only reason his fame eclipsed that of Fats Domino (aside from the man's own shyness and humility) was because of his (Elvis') white skin.
  • Waylon Smithers is a big fan of him, taking pride in the picture that Mr Burns gave him with being next to Elvis. The latter couldn't understand a word he was saying. As Smithers puts it, "he was so good to his mother". Elvis was fine with him getting an autograph personally, though this could be in part interest in his boss' financial abilities and desire for funds.
  • Has a Friendly Rivalry with Michael Jackson, his former son-in-law. They even had a rap battle. There's a similar rivalry with the Beatles who become one of the next popular things during what he considers his Dork Age and wane in popularity, but like Michael there's no hard feelings.
  • Grew up a fan of Captain Marvel comics, even stylizing some of his outfits off him. It was a real treat for Elvis to meet Billy Batson in person.
  • Practically worshiped by Lilo and Stitch, who consider him an idol to look up to. They use him as an example of a model citizen, and have tried to get him ascended. They succeeded, and Elvis gladly visits their temple for songs and autographs. Meanwhile they're allowed to visit Graceland whenever they want for their help.
  • He was utterly awed by Bill and Ted. Oh sure, he popularized rock and roll but they managed to create utopia as the Wyld Stallyns. He's nothing short of impressed by them, even asking for their autographs, leading them to squee. He's gone on a time-travelling adventure with them of late.
  • Likes Josuke Higashikata for defending the pompadour hairstyle, though until he learned just why he has the hair thought he went a bit overboard with it. Initially believed it was based off his own hairdo, but Josuke's stated it's a Prince nod.
  • Official sources say he died at his throne due to heart complications and his addiction to prescription drugs. Many didn't believe this, and assume he's still alive, possibly undercover drug-busting with the FBI. Now that he's ascended Elvis seems fond of claiming this, however he's probably lying due to embarrassment over his Undignified Death.
  • Suspected to have been some sort of alien, and gone home in 1977. The Men in Black have claimed this about him, and his appearances in the House of Extraterrestrials is somewhat suspicious. Most agree he's probably human, though many alien gods enjoy his works. On rare occasions he looks pretty elvish.
  • Loves him some bacon, particularly burned bacon like ma used to make. Him and Goku bonded over their love of bacon, and was quick to take some of that heart medication Future Trunks got Goku. Was somewhat annoyed to learn that he's been trying to get rid of bacon stores in his timeline. You can often find Elvis in the House of Food, getting cheeseburgers on demand there.
  • Also spends his time in the House of Weapons and Travel. He has a lot of cars he wants to purchase, and feels like pulling his old Shoot the Television trick out again(he doesn't like cathode rays). He was briefly kicked out from the House of Theater due to trying them out on the televisions there and pulling some pranks.
  • Proud to admit he loves him mom, and looks down on bad mothers. He shows contempt to exploitative bosses and con-artists as well.
  • Has plenty of imposters, something he sees as rather flattering. Currently trying find someone to serve as the god of said trope. On his search he was pretty surprised to learn that in an alternate universe, Galactus lost his powers and essentially became the new Elvis of that reality.
  • Doesn't know what to think about the current state Richard Nixon is in, who wants him to pick up the slack on the war against drugs.
