  • Interests: The Houses of Investigative Work and Science
  • Emerging from decades old hibernation with scales as black as the tar that drips from its own body is the Gogmazios, the Giant Halberd Dragon. Abominable even among its fellow Elder Dragons little is actually known about it other than its appetite for sulfur. In ancient times it was known to raid the gunpowder stores of cities, and at one point it involuntarily stole the first Dragonator from Dundorma during its attack. Getting in the way of its feeding is ill advised, it completely wiped out an entire settlement during its time to end its hunger.
  • Perhaps fittingly, Gogmazios was around the Pantheon since its simpler but ever-so hectic beginnings. While it had many encounters with its denizens it ultimately went back into hibernation and soon its presence was forgotten and its title was mistakenly marked as otherwise empty. Fast forward to the present and it ended up becoming hungry again and arose from... somewhere, and was said made a beeline to the House of Explosives. The Monster Hunters, with the little knowledge of its behavioral hunger in mind, gathered support to deter its rampage. As the Court of Gods made it clear it still holds a right to its title various deities pitching in by gathering as much gunpowder as possible. While they proved to underestimate its cravings, the sustained fire eventually drove it off. As a result of this encounter it's probably not going back to hibernation anytime soon and it hasn't given up on going after the House of Weapons.
  • It goes without saying: The Giant Halberd Dragon is as menacing as they come, and as an Elder Dragon it has the power to back up its fearsome appearance. Its claim to infamy is the sticky flammable tar it constantly exudes from its body which also entraps those caught in its droplets. It is essentially sweating impurities that it exudes after its consumption of sulfur in gunpowder. Gog itself is burdened by its own tar, but this does little to hinder its surprising amount of mobility. In fact when enraged it begins to suddenly heat up despite there being an organ for heat exhaustion and the tar that once burdens it follows suit. The drops of tar will now explode and without the substance now dissipating in this state Gog can also force itself into the skies and rain down burning oil lasers.
    • The tar that covers it may also be viewed as a double-edged sword. Because of how viscous it is there is nothing stopping it from entrapping whatever comes in contact with Gog's body, such as the prototype of a giant lance meant to impale monsters. And being covered in volatile tar, old and hardened or not, leaves it weak to the Fire Element. For this reason it stays as far away from the House of Fire & Heat under the possibility that being there would ignite too much of the tar when its still on its own body. This does open the question if it could survive such an explosion as the Monster Hunters claim its durability surpasses Dalamadur, an Elder Dragon whos boundless serpentine body can constrict mountains.
  • On its quest for more gunpowder, Gogmazios was reported to have assaulted the cruel Lord Shen's temple. Though his fortresses' mounted weaponry were enough to drive it off, the attack still came off as an unpleasant surprise due to not properly damaging it. And the encounter hasn't stopped Gog from coming back and trying again from time to time, much to Lord Shen's displeasure.
  • At some point, the Elder Dragon encountered and did battle with the Pavilion Mantis, Ahtal-Ka, and her mech the Ahtal-Neset. Though her ability to stand her ground was admirable, Gogmazios eventually overwhelmed the Neopteron and forced her into retreat and set back progress on her construct. As Ahtal-Ka rebuilds she expresses a desire to avoid the Elder Dragon in the future, supposedly until the new Ahtal-Neset is even deadlier than before.
    • Some say that the time frame of this encounter was not too long after when Gogmazios faced off against the Extinction Dragon, Nergigante, while it sneaked into the Pantheon prior to its official ascension. Though the outcome of the fight was more ambiguous due to Nergigante's pursuers managing to catch up to where he decided to turn his wrath against them and escape once more. As its hunger for the bioenergy from Elder Dragons continues, so too does its challenges again the tremendous tar dragon.
  • Ever the Egomaniac Hunter, one day Hircine declared the Elder Dragon his new query and right as his hunters were about to corner it his fellow Daedric Prince, Molag Bal, opportunistically spirited away the weakened Elder Dragon into his realm. After some amount of time Gogmazios reemerged corrupted into the Lord of Domination's service as a daunting pseudo-Daedric Titan and was let loose against a GUAG base out of spite. Thus, the skies rained with molten flame. Still vexed that Molag Bal ruined his hunt he tipped off Ornstein, Smough, and Artorias to go help kill it in his stead while he went to reap what remained. The Elder Dragon doesn't anyone involved in that day in high regard.
  • Its name comes from the names of Gog and Magog, two Biblical names typically associated with negative aspects like destruction and demons whether its referring to individuals and/or lands. The parts are "geos" referring to the land, and the french word "érosion" which is there to resemble the English word invasion. As the conception behind its design is basically an almost otherworldly dragon that has to be fought off it altogether fits quite well.
  • When it stands upright and holds its head back there are visible openings resembling a face that glow a burning orange, an eerie sight especially as that's the cue its about to fire its Wave-Motion Gun. Yet some people took to a more humorous approach and equated it to a sad face, hence it's nickname of "Gogsadios".
  • As stated earlier little is actually known about the Gogmazios save for the living encounter with hunters in the Battlequarters in and around Dundorma. The reason for this is that, setting aside its long hibernations, no one lived to tell the tale of such a beast. In the Pantheon with its more capable of gods and goddesses people plan on changing that and some among the Houses of Science and Investigative Work have begun working alongside the Monster Hunters in helping understand it. Gog is not easy to work with, being prone to lashing out when it feels threatened, but it's better than nothing.

Intermediate Gods

    Brachydios 
Brachydios, God of Powerful Elements (Crushing Wyvern, Brachy, Bracchi, Bura, Dios; Raging Brachydios: Critical Brachydios, Critical Brachy, Nuclear Brachy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mhwi_brachydios_render_001_5.png
Raging Brachydios 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The hunter's guild's icon for both versions
  • Theme Song: Brave Icon
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Theropods with Developed Forelimbs, Exploding Slime, Agile Destructive Creatures, Very Good Jumper, Resists Explosions for Defensive Reasons
  • Domains: Slime, Explosions, Combat, Monsters
  • Size: 1339.18cm-1902.213cm
  • Rivals: the Ghostbusters
  • Opposes/Opposed by: The Monster Hunters, the Houses of Water & Moisture, Ice & Cold and other deities that can use water and ice attacks
  • The world of Monster Hunter has various monsters that are classified by elements. They include water, fire, thunder, ice, and dragon. Slime is another element and compared to the others, it is very powerful as it does well against other elements and can explode. Brachydios is a monster that is capable of using such element. Obviously, it's one of the more powerful monsters that's out there.
  • It was briefly in the Pantheon at one point Having a Blast (pun intended). However, it disappeared not long after, with its title taken by Solf J. Kimblee. It later resurfaced in the Pantheon, this time, with the title of Infinity +1 Element as the Court of the Gods noticed how powerful the slime element is in its home universe.
    • Ironically enough, the Slime element was later changed to the Blast element.
  • The Brachydios is allowed to roam free throughout the House due to the fact that attempts to physically quarantine the beast end with smoldering debris of the containment walls, ruined environments, and the fact that casual layabout of its slime puddles turns any territory of the beast into a minefield. To prevent outright destruction, restraining teams are called in to engage and subdue the beast on a regular basis.
    • Members of the Houses of Combat! and Weapons regularly volunteer themselves for these restraining teams to test their abilities against one of the more formidable species in the House of Beasts. Only the most powerful return on their own feet, and even then they tend to be covered in scorch marks from slime charges.
    • In the times they volunteer for the restraining team, the House of Friendship tackle the Brachydios en masse, and are markedly more successful due to heightened coordination between members.
      • Any members of selected restraining teams that are capable of using water and ice attacks seem to have an easier time dealing with this monster.
  • The secretions of the Brachydios are being tested for military applications due to its unique explosive properties. Restraining teams are ordered to bring in any samples they manage to salvage from it when it is subdued.
  • There was an incident where Makoto Nanaya unleashed the Planet Crusher on the Brachydios, causing the fragments of the shattered moon to explode from slime dispersion. She is allowed to continue facing the beast, but was lectured on the consequences of using that particular move on that particular monster at great length.
  • Compared to the other Brute Wyverns, this one doesn't use it's head for attacking. Instead, it relies on its fists. The House of Knowledge is still trying to figure out why that is the case.
  • A variant known as the Raging Brachydios has been seen roaming the Pantheon. The fact that this version's slime explodes faster (and is more volatile as such) has made restraining this monster more difficult than doing the same things against the regular kinds.
  • Given that the Ghostbusters have dealt with slime before, they are among those who are called in to deal with the monster. They have mentioned that taking on this creature is more of a challenge compared to taking on ghosts.
  • The wyverns have been aggressive to the point of invading the temples of other large monsters to try and claim the territory as their own. The attempts haven't been successful for the time being, due to restraining teams having to drive Brachydios out.
  • Also has a spot in Abilities.

    Delsin Rowe 
Delsin Rowe, Celestial Conduit Of Bizarro Elements (The Terrorist, Banner Man, Del, D, Smoketastic Man, The Smoker, Smoke Guy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/infamous_second_son_delsin_rowe_render_cutout_2_by_mizukimarie_d74dhq1.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbols: His Red Beanie Hat And Chain
  • Theme Song: Second Son
  • Karma Meter: Between True Hero Or Infamous
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Conduits, Native Americans, Delinquents
  • Heralds: Abigail 'Fetch' Walker and Eugene 'He Who Dwells' Sims
  • Powers: Can Absorb The Powers Of Other Conduits, With Smoke Being The Primary Power
  • Allies: Cole MacGrath, Tomas 'Smoke' Vbrada, Alison 'Dazzler' Blaire, Kat (DmC), Nightwolfl, Vulcan Raven (kinda), Ruby Rose, Eikichi Onizuka, Rogue, Jubilee, Gunvolt
  • Friendly Rival: Beat
  • Enemies: Kessler, Cinder Fall, Cinder (Killer Instinct), Gabriel 'Reaper' Reyes, Big Brother
  • Scouted By: Havik and Hotaru
  • Odd Friendship: with Chris Redfield
  • Commonality Connection: often confused with Joel, Booker DeWitt, Ryu Hayabusa, Bruce Wayne/Batman, Erron Black, Shinnok, Jake Muller, James Sunderland
  • Someone has been leaving graffiti tags and making crank phone calls to the Grand United Alliance of Evil's emergency line. Case in point:
    GUAE Operator: GUAE Emergency Line. The hell you want?
    ??? (in an old man's voice) Uh, a damn god is on the loose, his painting skills are top notch...umm I mean defiling your billboards!
    GUAE Operator: Yeah, yeah. Shut up, ya old fart. We're sendin' out the hit squad.
  • Not to say that the Grand United Alliance of Good's emergency line is exempt from the mystery God's antics:
    GUAG Operator: You have reached the GUAG Emergency Center. How can I direct your call?
    ???: (with a faux-French accent) Oh dear! A strikingly handsome god has covered this billboard in amazing avant-garde designs! Please assist! 
    GUAG Operator: Emergency Response Team has been deployed. Please standby.
  • Orders are given to find the newcomer. Ironically enough, Kat discovered the perpetrator by accident; an Akomish delinquent who was working on his latest tag. As a tagger herself, she warmed up to him, as she liked his style. Then, Kurtis Stryker showed up, and attempted to place said delinquent under arrest. Imagine his shock to see that the man transformed into a plume of smoke and escaped through a ventilation shaft. Delsin Rowe has come to the Pantheon.
  • Delsin was just your average delinquent hailing from the Akomish tribe, located in a quaint coastal town in Washington state, spending his time tagging billboards and being a general pain-in-the ass for his brother, Reggie Rowe, who served as the town sheriff. After an encounter with an escaped Conduit, Delsin discovered that he was a Conduit himself.
  • It had been Cole MacGrath that finally caught up with Delsin as he touched up a mural dedicated to his late brother, Reggie...and scaring the crap out of Delsin. Suffice to say, both Delsin and Cole are diametric opposites when it comes to how they view their respectice Conduit powers; Cole sees them as a burden while Delsin is clearly enjoying himself. Either way, the two became friends, bonding over being Conduits and losing loved ones in the process.
  • There is a bit of conflicing information as to how Delsin's ascension was cleared, regarding his actions in Seattle. On one side, Delsin freed Seattle, captured the DUP Boss Brooke Augustine, and used her powers to save his people. On the other end, Delsin and his two friends seize control of Seattle, killed Augustine, and when he was disowned from the Akomish, destroyed the longhouse and killed all inside with an Orbital Drop.
    • Due to these conflicting stories, Havik and Hotaru are actively scouting Delsin to join their respective sides. Hotaru believes with the right amount of old-fashioned Seidan discipline, Delsin could be a formidable warrior of Order, while Havik wants to make Delsin a disciple of Chaos.
  • While put off by Nightwolf's revenant appearance, Delsin has come to see the Lakota shaman as one who provides good counsel when he doesn't go to Betty.
  • While his views on law enforcement are on the fence due to DUP boss Brooke Augustine killing his brother, he does have a level of respect for Chris Redfield, mainly in part that he helped raised and trained his sister how to defend herself. Surviving zombie outbreaks also earned her some serious brownie points with Claire as well.
  • The Ascended Kombatants thought that there was another god posessed by a malevolent smoke demon, as in the case of Tomas Vbrada. Delsin cleared everything up by saying that he is a Conduit with the ability to absorb the powers of other Conduits.
  • Found himself on Reaper's shitlist when the former Overwatch operative saw Delsin's smoke powers and claimed that Delsin ripped them off from him. Good thing Delsin had that Healing Factor handy, plus plenty of smoke from destroyed cars to recharge his batteries as he survived Reaper's assault.
  • While a bit put off that he is an assassin, Delsin is on friendly terms with Gunvolt, as unlike most hitmen, Gunvolt shows kindness and compassion, of which surprises Delsin.
  • "You are not in control."

    Gill 
Gill, God of Color Specific Elements (Lord and Emperor of the Illuminati, The Savior of Humanity, The Dark Messiah)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gill_3so.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The All-Seeing Eye of The Illuminati.
  • Theme Song: Nile (Drum & Bass Mix or The Emperor Doesn't Look Back), The Judgment Day when enacting plans, Psyche Out in battle
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Respects his Opponents and Recognizes Their Abilities, Made Emperor of the Illuminati Simply Because of His Power and Destiny, The Dark Messiah Who Declares Himself as a God, Combines Ice Powers with Fire Powers, Well Intentioned Extremists, Hard to Defeat and Cheap Bosses, Stripperific Combat Loinclothing, "RESURRECTION!", The Seraphic Wing, Anti Villains, The Big Bad of Street Fighter III
  • Domains: Fire, Ice, World Saving, Balance, Combat
  • Superior: Bill Cipher (or so it seems)
  • Associates of The Illuminati: Kolin, Vandal Savage
  • Allies: Kars, Esidisi, Santana, Wamuu, Algol
  • Rivals:
  • Enemies:
  • Manipulating: Charlie Nash, Juri Han, Rashid
  • Closely Watching: High Councilor Kal-El/Regime Superman
  • Genetically modified to become the Emperor of The Illuminati and The Savior of Humanity, Gill has been given the power to use both flames and ice through his red and blue sides.
  • He is currently trying to conduct a tournament that would allow him to be able to weed out the weak and lead the worthy to be able to live in paradise.
  • It has been prophesied by many that he would become the Messiah when the world ends and lead those worthy of surviving into The Promised Land. As such he is attempting to scour the various parts of the Pantheon to find the worthy and get them ready for such an event.
  • He once had troubles with Dudley in the past due to that his organization owned Dudley's Father's Car, though they are still enemies Gill has given it back to him due to his combat skill and that Gill really didn't need it.
    • Now that Alex ascended... he's currently trying to convice him to join the Illuminati. Alex rejects, and since then, they're sworn enemies. The fact that he injured Alex's mentor Tom doesn't help at all.
  • Gill has also been able to fight on par with Akuma though he is not immune to the Shun Goku Satsu, he can resurrect himself as he did after his fight with Akuma.
    • His Resurrection Super Art, giving him the ability to resuscitate himself instantly completely unharmed should he be killed or knocked out in battle, is one of the Sixty-Six Secret Arts of the Illuminati.
  • He also has the ability of Seraphic Wing, a display of his Messianic power in which he unleashes a powerful field of energy which may be either multicolored or pure blinding white, overwhelming any close opponent or bystanders that are not ready instantly.
  • He prefers balance and has a dislike for both forces of Order and Chaos, though if they prove worthy then he will also bring them to The Promised Land.
  • Earned the scorn of Chun-Li after one of the adopted children she took care of was kidnapped by Gill's oganization in order to do genetic experiments on her; though it was his brother Urien that did that deed, it was approved by Gill.
    • Speaking of Urien, he has mixed feelings towards his brother. These are surfacing now that the former joined the Pantheon.
  • He's also the anti-thesis of Orochi. Wiz and Boomstick spent a long time trying to arrange a potential Death Battle between the two, but were forced to give up when Orochi left the Pantheon.
  • Is getting help from Kars and The Pillar Men to try and pick out the Worthy in other parts of the Pantheon.
  • Despite ostensibly appearing on the same side, The Illuminati and Shadaloo have secretly opposed each other for a long time, since Gill has far more altruistic intentions for his world-ruling agenda than M. Bison does. At the advent of Bison's final plan to become invincible using the power of seven artificial Black Moons, he had his secretary Kolin work under Urien using the fake name "Helen" to assemble an anti-Shadaloo team including recruiting Juri and resurrecting Nash. Kolin's team, along with one assembled by Karin Kanzuki, were ultimately successful in taking down the Dictator and clearing Gill's path to rule. Gill is watching Karin as a potential rival for future global leadership in the wake of Shadaloo's downfall.
    • The moment he chose to reveal himself to the world after the fall of Shadaloo has finally been shown. He met the challenge of the so-called "President of the World" and seemed to recognize something familiar about his power.
  • Was very pleased to hear that Kolin ascended into the Pantheon and is hoping that she brings in more potential allies for the Illuminati. This has seen dividends in some ways better than others: while Gill is very much appreciative of the alliance she's forged with Regime Superman, with he and Savage both looking forward to seeing if she can bring the Kyrptonian into the Illuminati fold, he is also nearly as annoyed as the Phantasm of Snow and Ice herself is at Kano's obsessive lust towards her.
  • When a full-scale Illuminati group made its ascension to the Pantheon, an investigation into which active deities were involved in this matter naturally sent questions the way of Cipher's alliance. Gill and Savage both tried to take advantage, claiming to be high-ranking leaders in this group in order to get seats in the Main House. These were the only statements the lie detectors caught as lies. They each shrugged, saying it was worth a shot.
    • Unbeknownst to Bill Cipher, Gill and Savage both have plans which far outweigh worshiping the whims of the chaotic triangle; in fact they've been motioning toward his elimination this whole time, as risking the existence of the Pantheon for another Weirdmageddon is not what they want.
  • Can also be found in Color Combinations.
  • "The mark of my divinity shall scar thy DNA."

    The Nothing Card 
The Nothing Card, Avatar of the Fifth Element and Crafter of Destructive Spheres (The Hope, The Sealed Card)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_nothings_main_body.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess; but wields the power of a Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: A red winged heart with a black shadow.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Element #5, Power of the Void, Yin-Yang Bomb, Empathic Weapon, Knight Templar, Sealed In A Can, Mercury's Wings (on her head), Nothing Is Scarier, Scenery Gorn, Perpetual Frowner, Sphere of Destruction, Dark Magical Girl, Lonely at the Top, The Unfettered
  • Domains: Negativity, Void, Magic
  • Allies: Sakura Kinomoto, Zeratul, Nanoha Takamachi
  • Enemies: Yin Yang Bombers, Dune, Tabuu
  • Creates spheres of destruction via Beam Spam.
  • Spent much of her existence imprisoned in card form beneath Clow Reed's mansion, acting as a negative counterbalance for the positive magic of the Clow Cards. She was freed and went on an unfettered mission to reunite with her friends, destroying Sakura Kinomoto's hometown in the process until Sakura and the transformed Sakura Cards into performing a Heel–Face Turn. She then fused with a nameless card made by Sakura and became the Hope Card.
  • Intended by the Main House to be a negative counterpart to the positive energy of nature and magic itself. Terrified of being imprisoned in a lonely dark place again, Sakura came to the aid of the Nothing and with help of Phoenix Wright, convinced the Main House to give the Nothing a less traumatic position.
  • Gets on quite well with Zeratul due to their similar powers, and he helps convince her that she is not evil nor are her powers.
  • Hates Tabuu, realising he is pretty much a male version of her, and vows to stop him from dragging the universe into the Subspace World.
  • Destroys only what needs to be destroyed, erasing them from existence within her black orbs. Has tried to destroy SCP-682 on more than one occasion but her powers have no effect on it for some reason. Further attempts have been performed on some of the destructive reality crushing members of the Pantheon, but they've defied the Nothing's powers in various ways. The Joker avoided erasure by throwing a custard pie in her face.
  • Can also be found in Ruin & Destruction.

Lesser Gods

    Miyuki Hoshizora/Cure Happy 
Miyuki Hoshizora, Goddess of Heart Blast (Cure Happy, Ultra Cure Happy, Emily, Glitter Lucky)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/CureHappy285_4002.jpg

    Noriko Ashida/Surge 
Noriko Ashida, Goddess of Elemental Absorption (Surge, Nori)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2015_08_11_100159.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Gauntlets, crackling with electricity
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Disowned By Her Father For Being A Mutant, Bare Your Midriff, Big Sister Instinct, The Big Girl On Her Squad, Hot-Blooded, Ms. Fanservice, Shock and Awe Combined With Super Speed, You Gotta Have (Dyed) Blue Hair
  • Domains: Mutants, Electricity
  • Allies: James Howlett/Wolverine, Ororo Munroe/Storm, Anna Marie/Rogue, Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat, Hope Summers, Jubilation Lee/Jubilee, Elizabeth Braddock/Psylocke
  • Friendly Rivals: Thor, Cole MacGrath, Barry Allen/The Flash, Raiden, Killua Zoldyck
  • Enemies: Willaim Stryker, Azula, Heihachi Mishima, Kazuya Mishima, Sheev Palpatine
  • Headbutting Heroes: with Charles Xavier/Professor X, Scott Summers/Cyclops, Emma Frost/The White Queen, Erik Lensherr/Magneto
  • Noriko Ashida had been at her part-time job in the mortal realm when word reached her of her ascension to the Pantheon, the first of Dani Moonstar's New Mutants Squad to ascend. When Cyclops called her and told her that she was going to be late, Surge unleashed her powers and arrived at the Pantheon, albeit just barely late. Of course, as she charged through the Pantheon on her way to meet Cyclops and Emma Frost, for the ascended Kombatants, she would be mistaken for Kabal due to her insane speed.
  • For the record, her blue hair has nothing to do with her powers. She dyes it. Ironically enough, the dye is named 'Electric Blue.'
  • As her codename is Surge, Nori's mutant powers stem from her constantly absorbing electricity at all times, be it from static in the air, electrical appliances, outlets, and so on. Seeing as how she can't control it, she has to wear specialized gauntlets designed to regulate her energy absorption. It also allows her to discharge the energy via lightning blasts or granting her superhuman speed. However, should she takes in too much electricity, then it causes her brain to overload, which can be identified by Nori speaking too fast, scatters her thinking, and her control over her lighting blasts worsens. And despite her ascension, she still needs the gauntlets to control her powers. Only difference is that she now has on a pair of smaller gauntlets.
  • The Flash has heard of a new deified speedster having just arrived in the Pantheon. He thought it was Quicksilver. But he was surprised to see that it was a Japanese schoolgirl with dyed blue hair and wearing oversized gauntlets. While Barry knows that he is faster than Noriko, he sees the potential in her when it comes to speed.
  • Became the de facto student to Cole MacGrath in learning how to control her powers...and free-running. Much to Cole's surprise, Noriko became a fast study, not only in honing her electric powers, but also in parkour. Noriko found a second love in parkour, and can be seen roof-hopping and line-grinding across the Pantheon with Cole. While Cole tends to absorb the lightning from anything electric such as cars and powerlines, he has to admit that in spite of everything, Noriko's got a pretty sweet deal.
  • Dislikes Heihachi Mishima, as he reminds Surge of her own father, who had disowned her shortly after finding out that his daughter was a mutant. Speaking of Noriko's father, when he discovered that his wayward daughter had been deified, he attempted to reach her, as with a daughter as a god, then the prestige of the family would increase. Noriko, however, threw her father's words back in his face when he made contact with her: "My father did not wish to be a part of my life. He has brought nothing but shame and hurt to my mother and brother. And he would never contact me."
  • Speaking of fathers, Bryan Mills has become something of a parental figure to Surge, as she reminds Bryan of Kim, in a way.

    Will Vandom 
Wilhelmina Vandom, Goddess of Pure Energy (Will, Wilma, Keeper of the Heart, Guardian of the Veil, Guardian of Quintessence, Pink Perky Poopy Pumpkin)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/will_vandom1.jpg
Click here  for her in Guardian form
Click here  for her Zenith form
  • Lesser Goddess (Intermediate in her Zenith form)
  • Symbol: The Heart of Kandrakar or the Quintessence symbol
  • Theme Music: Keeper of the Heart
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Friend to All Living Things, wielder of the fifth element, nice girl, being a tactical genius at times, Beware the Nice Ones, older and sexier alter ego, opposer of bullies, being in command, disaster magnet, overly-emotional redhead, can converse with normally non-sentient machines, Pure Energy, teleportation, being the heart, dizziness upon proximity to dark magic
  • Domain: Emotion, Love, Technology, Quintessence
  • Allies: Ma-Ti, Heart Aino, Captain Planet, Jimmy Hopkins, Billy Batson/Shazam, the gods her teammates follow (John Egbert, Percy Jackson, Recca Hanabishi, Toph Bei Fong), Greninja
  • Enemies: Phobos, Most large scale villains in the pantheon
  • High Priest: Oracle Himerish of Kandrakar
  • Heralds: Irma Lair, Taranee Cook, Cornelia Hale, Hay Lin
  • Formerly High Priest to Ma-Ti, Will ascended when in her mortal life she became one with the element of Quintessence, also known as Aether. Upon careful consideration, it was decided she be given the position of Pure Energy, as her element is exactly that.
  • As Quintessence is Absolute Energy and she holds the source of magical energy, in addition to standard magical bolts, she can make magical barriers, teleport, turn invisible, sense magical phenomena, create mindless physical copies of her allies, can communicate with inanimate electrical objects, and possesses animal empathy.
  • Due to her representing Kandrakar, the center of her respective universe, Will has a strong opposition to any kind of larger threat towards reality at large.
    • Surprisingly, she has no ill will towards Beerus, due to his job of keeping balance in his own universe. However, that doesn't mean she likes him either.
  • When asked to explain what makes Quintessence different from other similar-looking powers, she proudly notes that her element is really just will-power.
  • That's not to say she can't also be The Heart, as she was such for her team for a long time, even when she was considered powerless, and as such is extremely eager to make friends with all her fellow do-gooders.
  • Does not like bullies, so gets along well with Jimmy Hopkins, despite (or perhaps, because of) his anti-heroic stance on the matter.
  • A few gods find it amusing that Will's friends are followers of gods in this house who are higher ranking than she is. Will does not.
    • As such, Will has been frequently known to put in requests for her fellow guardians to be ascended into full godhood as well and join the Magical Girl Sisterhood, as they are part of how she got to where she is now, and she hates the fact that they've been seemingly left by the wayside. Unfortunately, no real headway has been made as of yet, but Sailor Moon herself is equally interested.
  • Even when she transforms into an older body, she is still just a little insecure of her chest size and is rather jealous of Power Girl and others like her.
  • Many gods admire her for the level of tactical skill it took to pull off tricking Phobos into helping her and then anticipating his own betrayal and planning around it. Though Phobos being himself betrayed prevented the final result of this gambit from being seen, it is all but ensured that it would have paid off otherwise.
    • In fact, some gods have suggested that it might be worth recruiting her into the GUAG as a tactician. However, Will apparently has enough burdens as it is and preemptively turned down the offer.
  • Will heard there were other Guardians in the Pantheon, so she sought them out. However, while they weren't quite what she imagined (more guns and definitely more alien), she was incredibly impressed with their abilities and that they were definitely the good guys. Even though they may not need them, she's offered her powers to support them in their endeavors if ever they do.
  • As a fan of Pokemon, she was ecstatic to finally meet Ash and Pikachu, but especially Greninja as she has a passion for frogs to the point of collecting anything that's frog related. Greninja was unsure how to take this excitement, but is flattered nonetheless.
  • Would like you to know that she and her friends are not witches, that is just their initials.
  • Rumors have gone around that there is an object called the Star of Threbe that can completely negate the powers of Will and her fellow guardians in certain circumstances. Due to the risk that this effect could extend to other gods, Will has ensured that she never give away any hint whatsoever as to where the star ended up after its last use.

  • Takuya, Koji, Izumi, Tomoki and Junpei were chosen to go to the Digital World and give physical form to the Legendary Spirits of Fire, Light, Wind, Ice and Thunder respectively. They were tasked with fighting Cherubimon, a rogue angel who was using the other Spirits (Earth, Wood, Water, Steel and Darkness) to gather the Digital World's data. The children eventually found a sixth companion in Koichi, Koji's older twin brother, who was chosen for the Spirit of Darkness. Together they brought the remaining Spirits home and unlocked new powers, allowing them to defeat Cherubimon. However Cherubimon was merely the pawn of Lucemon, a tyrannical angel who was sealed away by the Ten Legendary Warriors (the ancient forms of the Spirits) and was bidding his time until he could rise again and lay a new claim on the Digital World. The children refused to allow it and combined all the Spirits into Susanoomon, succeeding in defeating Lucemon once and for all and saving both worlds.
  • Initially Koichi ascended on his own. He did rather well by himself, but was lonely without his companions and often asked the Main House about ascending them. Then one day, a being called the Light of Destruction appeared, and it hated and sought to annihilate Koichi for being its opposite as the wielder of the sacred Spirits of Darkness. At the same time, Chernabog tried persuading him to fully embrace darkness and become Duskmon again so that together they could put the Light in its place. Seeing this, Norn sent messages to his friends (not unlike Ophanimon when they first started out), giving them back their Digivices and allowing them entry into the Pantheon so they could help Koichi. All together, they were able to evolve into Susanoomon and send the evil light and dark gods packing. This got enough attention that the Main House reviewed their case, and seeing that the children all possessed the Legendary Spirits who represented certain elements of nature, granted them godhood over Elemental Embodiment. As a little extra, they were also reunited with their good friends and guides Bokomon and Neemon, who serve as Heralds.
  • What makes them stand out from the other Digidestined is their lack of partner Digimon, instead turning into them. The only Digidestined that have run into something similar are the DATS Agents; they once fought an unhinged trio that could turn into Digimon through a man-made process called Bio Hybrid Evolution. The Agents are relieved to know the six have good intentions. For the rest of the Digidestined, theirs is a power that makes them somewhat envious, since having it would mean they'd be more useful in a fight instead of relying on their Digimon all the time and risk them getting hurt for their sake. The six admittedly do enjoy their power and independence, though they sometimes lament that they cannot normally meet and talk to the Spirits.
  • A problem they infamously had is how Takuya and Koji had to use the rest of the team's Spirits in order to turn into KaiserGreymon and MagnaGarurumon, rendering their teammates defenseless and useless in a fight. The White Hats came up with the obvious solution: since Digimon are data, it should be possible to copy the data required for Takuya and Kouji's highest evolutions. It was a difficult process, but thanks to it, Takuya and Koji can now use their Transcendent Forms without taking away the other four's power to Spirit Evolve, making things a lot more balanced. Also, Koichi had managed to achieve his Fusion Form Raihimon during his time in the House of Darkness and Shadow before the others ascended, so it's not out of the question for Izumi, Tomoki and Junpei to do the same. To show their appreciation for the significant power boost, the team often works in tandem with the WH to protect cyberspace.
  • The GUAM is ambivalent towards them; they generally hate any Digidestined for lording over digital lifeforms (as they see it), but these six are a less clear-cut case due to turning into Digimon themselves. The GUAM reasons that if they'd only settle on their Digimon forms, they'd have a place in their ideal world ruled by machines; some Alliance members even think that if a similar process could be applied to all humans, they could achieve their machine revolution in a peaceful manner. As things are though, the six have no plans to allow the GUAM to hurt or subjugate humans in any way.
  • They aren't happy about Lucemon having established himself in the Pantheon a while before they came up. However that won't stop them from working hard to ensure Lucemon doesn't have his way and create an oppressive world where everyone bows to him with no question. Though, the Fallen Angel has endeared himself to YHVH and thus has the GUAL supporting him, so things are shaping up to be even tougher for the team than in their universe. Still, they have plenty of their own allies to help them against Lucemon's.
    • Those allies do not include the GUAC; although Lucifer is quite happy that the six are as opposed as they are to the GUAL's tenets, they themselves do not trust him as far as they can throw him, seeing him as just another Lucemon who wants to shape the world into his ideal image of it regardless of everyone's opinion. It just so happens Lucifer's philosophy is the polar opposite of Lucemon's, but the six find it no less revolting.
    • The Daedric Prince Meridia also brings the six bad memories of Lucemon; she has much of the same MO as the Fallen Angel, as even though she's not entirely opposed to free will, she has an army consisting of brainwashed people and she thinks all should worship her, considering those who do not do so to be evil people.
  • Getting constantly beat up by two Royal Knights that sided with Lucemon made them initally skittish around the ascended Royal Knight members. Fortunately Omegamon and Dukemon gradually proved to them that their Knight in Shining Armor looks weren't for show as they often worked together for WH-related missions. In addition, Norn vouched for the Royal Knights. Norn's identity as the highest authority in the Digital World surprised them as they'd never heard of anyone with more authority than the Three Angels. Unlike the '99 or '02 Digidestined, the six have had no encounters with Yggdrasill, and she also helped them ascend, so they are more willing to believe in her. Norn herself thought their turning into Digimon was odd, but they have their own bonds with the Spirits and truly care about the Digital World, which is enough for her.
  • It's often noted that the six have a very similar look and feel to the various Super Sentai and Power Rangers teams. It's a sensible comparison, what with the transformations into super-powered forms, color coding and team make-up. For their part, the Super Sentai and Power Rangers are happy to welcome them as honorary members. The Digidestined might be a bit on the younger side compared to the usual Sentai, but their power is a valuable asset all the same. They themselves, especially Takuya and Tomoki, are quite giddy at being respected by the awesome heroes they often saw on TV.
  • The gang's main transport in the Digital World was the Trailmons, a Digimon species with many variations that are all sentient trains of some sort. Lacking a Trailmon, they followed the rails to their next destination. Thus they have a sentimental predilection for traveling in the Pantheon by train, and they've become friends with Thomas the Tank Engine for being frequent patrons of his. They also have a close bond with the ToQger compared to the rest of the Sentai, considering they practically lived in a moving train throughout their adventure. The six have taken their share of trips in their train, as well as Ryotaro Nogami's.
  • Takuya is your typical Digimon gogglehead; brave, just, optimistic and prone to strong emotion. The way he takes the initiative made him the natural leader of the group, though he eventually learned to also use caution when making decisions. He has a little brother Shinya, who he used to be aloof from, but his interactions with Tomoki eventually awoke his Big Brother Instinct.
    • In his capacity as Tomoki's big brother figure, Takuya would often dispense advice and set examples that helped the younger boy overcome his insecurities. This won him the approval of Yu Narukami, who likewise made a good big brother figure to his little cousin Nanako. Besides that, both Yu and Takuya are the leaders of their respective teams, which both coincidentally consist of teenagers who have trouble fitting in with their peers for various reasons. Yosuke has expressed awe at how awesome Susanoomon seems to be compared to his Persona.
    • At some point, Takuya was somewhat coercively brought before Flame Princess (the only reason the others didn't jump to his rescue was because Kouichi calmed them down by saying Flame Princess was probably okay). Being the Fire Elemental, she was naturally interested in the Warrior of Fire. She couldn't believe a kid like Takuya deserved such a title, but as time went on and she saw him in action, plus seeing that he had a similar personality to Finn, she ended up warming up to him, and decided (on her own) that the Warrior of Fire was her knight. Takuya isn't really thrilled about this, but he also knows that Flame Princess isn't necessarily a bad person, so he goes along with it.
      • Another benevolent fire deity called Alexstrasza observed these events and was amused at Takuya's interactions with Flame Princess. She hopes his closeness to her will steer her away from Ragnaros. Takuya agrees with Alexstrasza that Ragnaros is bad news, and doesn't buy his talk that fire is meant to destroy everything. Besides that, the dragon thinks Takuya is generally admirable for how he handles the Spirits of Fire.
    • Wants to become a pro football player. Tai and Daisuke think it's ironic to see a successor of theirs seriously take up the sport they were into when they were younger but which they eventually dropped to take different career paths. They're curious to see just how far Takuya can go. At any rate, of all the soccer-related deities it was Nao Midorikawa who caught Takuya's attention the most, especially her March Shoot attack as a Cure. It's given him ideas to create a similar technique as a Digimon, which he has yet to succeed yet. His enthusiasm is endearing to Nao, who treats him like a little brother.
  • Koji is the brooding lone wolf (literally) whose stoicism opposes Takuya's exuberance. He refused to join the group at first and tried to do things alone. But for all that he projects that loner bad boy façade, he's really just bad at expressing his emotions; for a long time he lived with his single father, believing his mother was dead, causing him a lot of angst. He was also having trouble accepting his new stepmother (not the wicked kind), but eventually managed to do so in his adventure. He found further peace of mind upon meeting his twin brother Koichi for the first time and learning his biological mother was still alive.
    • Koji uses laser swords as Wolfmon. That and his connection to light got him the attention of Luke Skywalker, who mistook him for a Jedi. Despite that misunderstanding (Koji also made it clear that Koichi was not affiliated with the Dark Side), Koji and Luke saw they had quite a bit in common beyond weapon choice; both fought previously unknown family members who were serving an evil power, but fortunately made a face-turn, and they also discovered their long-lost twin sibling in the meanwhile. Of course for Koji, the formerly evil family member and the long-lost twin are one and the same, which Luke imagines must have made things even harder.
  • Izumi was raised in Italy and spent much of her childhood there, so when she came back to Japan, the switch to a different culture made her feel dislocated, which wasn't helped by how her classmates saw her as different from them and set her apart from everyone else. Not wanting to compromise herself to please others, Izumi grew rather individualistic. She was one of the most enthusiastic about coming to the Digital World, and in Takuya and co. she found friends who accepted her.
    • She's unfortunately saddled with the reputation of being, combat-wise, the worst of the team. Not only did she need Wolfmon to save her in her very first fight after acquiring Fairymon, she also went through a long stretch without being able to evolve at all due to losing the Spirit to the enemies, and even after acquiring the stronger Shutumon, she never really defeated anyone on her own besides Ranamon/Calamaramon. And of course the whole "Takuya and Koji taking everyone else's Spirits" that's already been talked about at length. She doesn't like the thought of being dead weight and she certainly doesn't appreciate it when deities accuse her of being useless in the team, feelings that Keyblade wielder Kairi understands, having had to rely on Sora and Riku a lot even as a fledgling warrior. For that reason, Kairi has invited Izumi to train with her and find the best way of using the Spirits of Wind; who knows, she might even discover how to turn into JetSilphymon.
    • One day she was flying around as Shutumon and spotted a gondolier, a very Italian sight which Izumi felt incredibly happy to see, and she swooped down to talk to her. The gondolier was Alice, the youngest of the three Undines in the Pantheon, and though surprised at the sight of Shutumon, she answered her questions. Izumi also shortly met Akari and Aika and was fascinated at the mature girls rowing gondolas and the city of Neo-Venezia they come from, which they told her could be visited any time from the Pantheon. Eventually Izumi gathered the team and they went on a trip there, which they all enjoyed. Izumi remains in touch with the Undines, with Alice being the one she's especially close to, as Alice also struggled with being treated differently by her peers and having no friends, though in her case it was due to being a young prodigy instead of having a different background.
  • Tomoki used to be a bit of a coddled crybaby, having no friends and being bullied a lot. He also had a strained relationship with his older brother, who tried to get him to grow up. He never really wanted to come into the Digital World and just wanted to go home, which Takuya promised he would help him with. Tomoki became attached to Takuya as a result and regarded him as an older brother. Through his guidance he became brave enough to face danger and he came out of the adventure more mature and confident in himself.
    • He knows now how to stand up to bullies and rise above them, knowledge that he applies when at the Elysium Academy. For the more physically imposing bullies that Tomoki would have a hard time dealing with without going Digimon (he thinks it would give him an unfair advantage and make him no better than the bullies), he has Jimmy Hopkins on his side; the older boy has a lot of respect for Tomoki's guts and is willing to give him a few pointers on anti-bully measures. Tomoki sees Jimmy as a champion of justice, but given his propensity to get into fights, the rest of the Digidestined worry about the kind of influence he might have on Tomoki.
    • Found a few good friends who share his icey affinity. The Guardian Jack Frost will often egg him on to join him in a snowball fight and show off what Chakmon can do. The demon Jack Frost is cute and funny to Tomoki, and he likes to imitate his "hee-ho" Verbal Tic. Elsa takes Tomoki's position as the Spirit of Ice a bit more seriously, being that she is now a Spirit of Ice of sorts too; given he's around the age she was when everything went wrong for her, she just hopes he keeps being responsible. Tomoki for his part has been noticed blushing a lot whenever Elsa's around, and getting inventive with his powers to make gifts for her. He also likes playing with Olaf and Elsa's Glaceon, enjoying pretending to be a snowman (as Chakmon) to prank them.
  • Junpei enjoyed some popularity among his peers before his adventure. However it was a shallow sort of popularity that he achieved by showing off magic tricks and giving out free candy (he always seems to have his pockets full of chocolate bars), out of desperation because he hates being alone. Nobody actually cared to get to know him and become his friend. As such he started out fairly cynical and selfish, and was the most skeptical about the Legendary Warriors stuff. But as the adventure went on he wound up getting true friends in Takuya and co..
    • HerakleKabuterimon naturally felt the need to pay respects to the one who's inherited the power of AncientBeatmon, Warrior of Lightning and ancestor to all insect Digimon. Junpei felt a bit flustered at all the reverence the enormous Thunder Beetle was showing him, and its bug-loving partner Sig wasn't helping either, being incredibly fascinated with the idea of an ancestor to all bugs. Then Agitha stepped him and shooed them away to Junpei's relief, only for Agitha to state that the two were being a bother to her future husband. Izumi gave the scene a thumbs-up while Takuya and the rest stiffled their laughter. Junpei's Big "NO!" could be heard outside the House.
    • As far as deities who share his element go, Junpei finds himself in awe of Gunvolt for his sheer coolness and determination to protect Joule. He dreams of one day being like GV and protecting Izumi like he does Joule. GV respects Junpei for his deeds in the Digital World, reconning his team would be an asset against Teseo, and has suggested that Junpei could train with his friends Cole MacGrath and Blanka. Junpei finds all the things Cole can do with electricity amazing and wants to learn to do that. Blanka took some getting used to, though Junpei eventually saw himself in him after hearing how he gradually made more friends.
  • Koichi wasn't with the team when they started out. He'd been surreptitiously following Koji at the time, partly curious and partly resentful of his younger twin brother he had only just learned about but too afraid to approach him. Cherubimon intercepted and brainwashed him into being his servant. After the team defeated the Warrior of Darkness's corrupted forms, Koichi came to terms with his feelings for Koji and awakened the true, pure forms of Darkness.
    • Before moving in with the team, he lived in the House of Darkness and Shadow, which he hasn't forgotten as he'll still give tours of the House to show people darkness is not inherently evil. He also has a good friend in Midna, despite the fact that by all appearances she treats him more like a servant and a replacement for Link who only has eyes for Zelda these days, which Koichi laughs off as he knows she really does care for him as a good darkness deity and regards him as an honorary Twilight Realm dweller. He also gets along well with Judai Yuki, who carries the Gentle Darkness within him, opposing the Light of Destruction.
