Emotion

What the House of Emotion looks like is irrelevant, for within its walls is quite literally a raging storm of rampant, unpredictable energy not too different from a massive Swirly Energy Thingy. Fueled by the various emotions and feelings radiating from every sentient being in the cosmos, the deities of emotion rank among some of the most powerful and unpredictable in the entire Pantheon. Only one with a truly strong will and, perhaps, a signature emotion of their own are able to resist. Sensible visitors that want to keep their sanity intact are best advised to avoid this House at all costs.

It has however been reported that if visitors keep their trips in short, the catharsis of experiencing these various strong emotions in rapid succession is both exhausting and satisfying. Rumor has it that under the storm, this House has just as much drama as the House of Family.

As Snow White is a Princess of Heart, security here is tight, so any attempts to capture her or use her to recreate the χ-blade will result in a temporary ban from the House.

Due to the increasingly massive number of deities, this house has been divided into six halls. In fact, the House got so large that four particular Halls, Regret and Sadness eventually splintered off to form its own House in Despondency while Fear and Courage & Cowardice followed to become Dread and Valor. Ever since then, they, alongside the Houses of Love and Affection, Madness and Insanity and Hatred and Rancor are often considered Sub-Houses to this one due to how the five of them still embody a certain aspect of emotion. The House of Emotion keeps great relations with Despondency and Love, although it does have a difficult time in getting along with Insanity and Hatred. As for Dread and Valor, the relationship is an odd schism at best, due to the shared prominence between benevolent and malevolent deities.

  • In the DC Universe, there is power through emotion. Emerging from the white light of life was the Emotional Spectrum, where the seven emotions of rage, avarice, fear, willpower, hope, compassion and love would be presented by the colors of the visible light spectrum; ROYGBIVnote . The first to feel these emotions would become the Emotional Entities, cosmic beings who usually express themselves with hosts. Hidden behind the Source Wall was another side to the spectrum; one based off hidden emotions and wavelengths outside human perception. The only one known so far is Umbrax, the ultraviolet entity of shame, guilt and nihilism.
  • Applies to the lot
    • These entities were for a long time thought lost; except for Parallax who had bonded with Sinestro, and Umbrax who was hidden, they sacrificed themselves to replenish the emotional spectrum by sinking into the Source Wall. However the Life Entity found itself in the Pantheon due to passing through whatever is beyond the Source Wall. When the Wall was broken the other entities started following the White Light and eventually all of them managed to arrive to the pantheon. This led to a merger of the ascended entities' profile with their brethren.
    • The SCP Foundation believes the entities should be contained and studied, especially Umbrax. Some like Parallax are at arms against this, others like Ion think this is a good idea but do not trust the Foundation. Despite the attempt at containment, the Emotional Entities managed to secure a place as one of the two general heads of the Emotion House alongside, well, the Emotions. Mainly it's that they feel a kinship towards them, being emotional embodiments. They're a lot more alien and some have compared them to the Chaos Gods, those asides from Khorne and the Butcher there isn't a 1-1 correlation and they regard each other as rivals.
    • Their trope was once held by Koro-Sensei, however he has permitted them having it as he has his own trope. Their ascension came as big news for the various lantern corps. Having been imprisoned for so long by Larfleeze, Ophidian was reading to settle the score with him. Ion, Adara, the Proselyte and the Predator were on good terms with the Green Lanterns, Bro'dee Walker, Iroque and Carol Ferris. Parallax is a somewhat reluctant ally of Sinestro, and Umbrax has had a working relationship with him in the past. The Life Entity tries to keep a check on their interactions so they don't compromise its plans. As for the Butcher, it is generally kept in check by Atrocitus.
    • The Emotional Entities tend not to hang around each other, instead exploring the pantheon to promote whatever emotion they are and find nourishment from. The exception is the Life Entity, who has a leading position in the Grand United Alliance of Nature and despite its somewhat manipulative nature is the most grounded of its "family". It has gotten the entities to agree on one important thing: life and emotions must continue to exist, which is why the GUAD must be opposed no matter what. Asides from Nekron, the entities hold a shared contempt for Nagash as his "make everyone" my undead slaves" would rob them of emotion and being.
    • The entities do not all share an ally, but they do have a shared enemies list. They are usually related to beings who would stamp out emotion, life itself or have other issues with them. Within their own universe this is Nekron and Krona, the latter having ensnared them for a time for his emotional experiments and they're rather salty about it; Parallax being the exception as it found the Mad Guardian's ends useful for it.
      • None of them care much for the third or sixth Hadou Gods. Nerose Satanel doesn't wish to snuff out the Life Entity as that would kill almost every DC Comics god, but his enforcing of happiness at the cost of free will to everyone would starve out the entities. Hajun inflicting a Hate Plague on the multiverse would derive all but the Butcher of food, but Hajun would inevitable derive him of hate to feed off.
      • Cyrus doesn't oppose the Life Entity as he wants some form of life to persist, but his belief in the chaos of emotions has him loathe the Emotional Entities. The Auditors of Reality regard all, even the Life Entity, to be too chaotic for their tastes. Though Cyrus has arguably reformed, he still considers the emotional entities too dangerous...and for most he's probably right.
      • Ungoliant, noticing they are all entities of light, considers the Emotional Entities a banquet waiting for her to feed on. She can't fight them off when they're in a host, so she waits until they are on their own so she may feed on them. The majority of the entities consider her abhorrent, but Ophidian and Parallax regard her as a rival; the former relates to her gluttony due to being avarice incarnate, and the latter respects her fear factor.
    • The Imperium of Mankind is well aware of their similarities to the Chaos Gods and consider containing them (the Life Entity Ion, Adara and the Proselyte) or exterminating them (The Butcher, Ophidian, Parallax, the Predator and Umbrax) to be important. Discord had a more bemused opinion as he was curious about what they would become if he Discorded them, though he refused to do on the Life Entity. Given their inherent nature as certain emotions, this lasted all of five minutes, but had interesting results. Visually their colors were inverted
      • The Butcher and the Predator basically swapped places. Personality-wise they become a Tsundere and Yandere.
      • Ophidian and the Proselyte became the entities of charity/selflessness and selfishness. Not quite taking each other's attributes, but close. An anomaly of the process, which other emotional entities experienced, was spitting up an inverted Lantern Power Battery and ring. Ophidian created a Teal Lantern battery and ring that represents charity, while the Proselyte created an Amber Lantern battery and ring that represents selfishness.
      • Parallax became the entity of courage, more or less the same as Ion but still held more autonomy than Ion. It spit up a Purple Lantern battery and ring that represents courage. Ion, rather than inverting its colors like most of its kin, instead turned grey and become the entity of apathy. The result was the creation of a Grey Lantern batter and ring based off apathy.
      • Adara became the entity of despair, and spit up an Orange Lantern ring and battery. This enraged Larfleeze as he felt it was mocking him, but while they use the same color scheme they were powered and inflicted despair. He decided to use it as a "fools gold" booby trap for whoever tried to steal his stuff. Discord tried to see what'd happen with Umbrax, but couldn't figure out how to Discord an entire star.
  • Applies to the Life Entity
    • God spoke: "Let There Be Light", and there it was. The Life Entity is the White Light, the one from where all life began in the DC Universe. This makes it Nekron's number one enemy, for not only disturbing the darkness with life and light, but being the linchpin to all life. The first and most powerful the Emotional Entity was also the first of the pantheon, coming to benefit under the Flame Imperishable of Eru. Melkor noticed the similarities it had with that fire who's failure to locate began his fall and hopes to obtain the Entity to get something close to it. Rumor has it he even wishes to subjugate it as a host. The Entity's response to such claims?
    Life Entity: "Better men have tried. Overdeity or not disgraced Valar, I am subject to none, lest of all a soul as hopelessly nihilistic and corrupted as you".
    • The Life Entity is closely guarded within the House of Life, as it is feared what will happen should Nekron succeed in capturing and attempting to kill the Entity again. Asides from him, the Life Entity has a number of other worries such as SKYNET who is unattached to life due to being a machine, and would love to terminate it to exterminate organic beings. It is less concerned with the House of the Undead or Chernabog, but the latter dislikes the light it brings while begrudgingly admitting its existence is necessary. And the former have many who are damaged by the white light.
    • The Life Entity once had Firestorm, the Martain Manhunter, Hawkman, Hawkgirl and Aquaman play the four classical elements routine to forge a successor; Swamp Thing. It was done rather manipulatively but was for the best of life. Captain Planet felt it was similar to how he is formed, and the Entity agreed. The White Light has since become an important figure of the Grand United Alliance of Nature, due to its desire to protect all life.
    • Holds a kinship with Xerneas due to being a figure of life and replenishment. Initially it and Yveltal, along with Dhuum were on poor terms as they were death entities and Dhuum disliked how it revives people. However Dhuum calmed down when he realized the Entity only does that for very special occasions and normally doesn't like reviving people. It also accepted Yveltal when it became more clear it represents destruction as a necessity, not as an enemy of life. On the flip side the Life Entity has become more skeptical of Chakravartin for how sinister his scheming is despite the kinship of being progenitors of life. It is less skeptical of Nurgle as he loves all life, and the Life Entity agrees, but feels he is a bit too obsessive.
  • Applies to the Butcher
    • The Butcher was created from the first murder, out of rage from it; be it the slain or the slayer is unknown. However it is likely the former, as the rage it is attracted to is retributive and vengeful. As such it doesn't think much of the House of Hatred and Rancor as most members inspire rage and/or are completely unjustified in wrath, but not all. It prefers the House of Vengeance. As far as the Spectre is concerned, the Butcher is its Evil Counterpart. Scar regards the Butcher as a being to be opposed, as he doesn't want to be consumed by his anger once more.
    • One of the beings in the House of Hatred that the Butcher likes is Mephisto, as the Lord of Hate brings it plenty of hate and even rage to feast on. Another is Angra Mainyu. When it bonds to a host the Butcher allows one to achieve vengeance, and its allies are brimming with a desire for revenge. For said allies the Butcher is content to simply aid them. For an actual host, the Butcher's ultimate goal is to take Bruce Banner as his host, creating "The Butcher Hulk" persona. It hopes this is retained as a personaltiy even if removed. The Hulk has other ideas.
    The Hulk: "Hulk is Hulk!" *punches the Butcher*
    • Others the creature is fond of is Kayeko and Sadayo, who it wishes well in their vengeance and hatred even if it knows it can never get the two to get along. The Butcher wants to aid Painwheel on her path of revenge as well. The Butcher, unlike the other Chaos Gods, actually gets along with one of them; Khorne. Granted as personifications of rage "get along" is relative, but they do feel a certain kinship. Khorne represents rage and hatred in all its forms, not just the mindset of the Butcher, which can lead to some disagreements, but compared to their usual temperment it comes off as civil.
    • Using certain symbolic cues, it is believed that the first murder which created the Butcher was Cain's murder of Abel. Again, it's unknown if he was born from Cain's rage towards his brother or the rage at Cain for fratricide, but given the Butcher prefers hosts of pain-born rage it was probably the latter. The SCP Foundation considers it relatively important to prevent the Butcher from interacting with any incarnation of Cain or Abel because of the possible consequences of the Butcher meeting one of its "creators".
  • Applies to Ophidian
    • Ophidian the Tempter was the first to desire more than they should have, becoming the embodiment of avarice. Or greed, if you will. Along with Parallax and Umbrax Ophidian is on the malicious side of the Emotional Entities. It is known as the Tempter as it brings out greed. Larfleeze captured it because he was too full of want for even the orange snake. It is most fond of Famine for inspiring greed through hunger, and considers the ever-gluttonous Gluttony "kind of a cute pet". Ophidian likes his brother Greed the most due to being the exact emotion it embodies, though at the same time it considers him competition and a potential host. Not that Greed doesn't like the snake. When it comes to the Chaos Gods, the being is closest to Slaanesh since s/he is all about desire and self-interest; something avarice is all about.
    • Ophidian resents Larfleeze's capture of it, and wants a replacement for the Orange Lantern...more specifically one that it believes it can cowe and do its bidding. It has been considering Mr Krabs and Smaug, and though it's intentions towards them is selfish it does seem to like their greed. Ophidian has promised them many riches to aid in taking down Larfleeze. The Tempter is more seriously interested in powerful hosts most befitting of its avarice such as planet, star and even dimensional eaters. It is also interested in Android 21 and taking control of her Heart and Hunger, which horrifies her.
    • All of the Emotional Entities oppose Apophis, one of the major figures in the GUAD, for obvious reasons. Ophidian is the first to oppose it, being a fellow snake. Though malicious, the destruction of the universe would deny it things to covet. Apophis regards the ordered universe as somewhat offensive and antithetical to chaos. Neither can fully understand each other's desires, and they certainly don't accept it. Ophidian also opposes Moro, but more so as a rival than an outright enemy; he wants it all and the Tempter respects that. Moro knows Ophidian wants his power and intellect, and knows their combined power would likely surpass even Lord Beerus. However he cannot the snake's desire to make him a host unless he is capable of subjugating the being to his will and not the other way around.
    • The creature was implied to be the serpent that tempted Adam and Eve. Like the Butcher how that works when it apparently predates the human race by billions of years is left to the theologians. Out of the many demons, Crowley and the Satan of Paradise Lost confirmed they were/took the form of said serpent. Ophidian has yet to speak about how it feels about Crowley and its true relationship with either, but it does find kinship in Satan for desiring that which is beyond their reach.
  • Applies to Parallax
    • Associates itself with the Dementors due to being malevolent emotion eaters. While their palates of fear and despair are different, they are closely related and can easily work in each other's favor. Plus it has the easier time possessing people consumed by loss, despair and fear. It associates with Pennywise as well due to their love of fear, with Pennywise finding it like "salting the meat". Other "friends of fear" the bug has is Cell (who's ambition beyond obtaining and fluanting his perfection is to see people's faces contorted in terror) and Freddy Krueger (who lives to bring lethal nightmares).
    • Parallax also formed an alliance of convenience with Nurgle as the despair the Great Unclean One brings fuels Parallax, but their methods and worldviews are very different. For starters the Fear Entity can't grasp how Nurgle demonstrates a propensity for depondency and love simultaneously. The Imperium regard Parallax as the worst of all the emotional entities and something they must exterimate, however it mocks them, and the Emperor of Mankind to his face, by pointing out the imperialistic, oppressive regime has generated so much fear that it could forever subsist on their terror, even boasting to the Emperor's face that he is the Chaos God of Fear and Repression. The Emperor proceeded to go at its sore spot by saying it is deep down a terrified little bug. Parallax responded very poorly.
    Parallax: "I AM FEAR AND FEAR FEELS NOTHING!!!"
  • Applies to Ion
    • Ion was initially believed to be an honorary title of the Green Lantern Corps, given to an empowered Kyle Rayner. His newly found Overdeity status was in fact due to an emotional entity, Ion. Barring the Life Entity it is the first emotional entity, the very first creature to will itself to act. Unlike Parallax Ion is wholly symbiotic and passive. It resembles a winged dolphin with a living lantern on its jaw. The being is easily the most controllable and understood entity, which is why the SCP Foundation is the least concerned with it.
    • Given the feud of their lantern corps and Parallax's past history, Ion really doesn't like the Fear Entity. It has the bravado to get under its nerves by reminding it it was once a fearful insect, causing Parallax to scream that it fears nothing. Beyond Parallax Ion really doesn't care for the Anti-Spiral, who's desire for suppression of evolution and development makes him against willpower. That said, it is knowlegable of the Spiral Nemesis and fears it as itself free of restraint and reason. However Ion is confident people won't go that far.
    • Other enemies include YHVH and Nurgle. The opposition to YHVH is obvious; YHVH believes free will is an evil to eradicate, and Ion is basically free will personified. Lucifer just wishes it wasn't nearly as passive. The Willpower Entity prfers not to talk about Lucifer as he represents the dangers of the emotion it embodies, but prefers him over YHVH. As for Nurgle, the being is all about giving up and accepting stagnation. In short, the antithesis to will.
    • The opposition to the Anti-Spiral led to Ion getting Team Dai-Gurren's attention. As the first life form of the DC Universe to will itself to act, it is basically the first instance of Spiral Power. Ion could see the power's similarity to the green light of Will and soon became really fond of them, though still has a closer relationship the Green Lanterns. It is also fond of James Henry Trotter for overcoming fear, and Team Lightyear for being space superheroes like the Green Lanterns.
  • Applies to Adara
  • Applies to the Proselyte
    • The tentacled Proselyte is no terror, but alongside Ion and Adara one of the nicer Emotional Entities. The personification of compassion, the Proselyte hopes to expand that and with the ability to use multiple energies of the emotional spectrum simultaneously it is good at this. It may be the entity on the best terms with The Love That Moves The Stars, due to His omnibenevolence. He does wish it could be a bit more orderly but as the first being in its universe to be compassionate, considers such a being wonderful. As a being of compassion it is somewhat baffled by Elmer Albatross acting compassionate despite not feeling compassion.
    • The Proselyte finds it difficult to find enemies, as even with evil deities it believes they can be changed to see the light, even if the Indigo Tribe must forcibly convert them. However it does indeed have enemies; the omnimalevolence of Dis is intense even for the Proselyte for he has rejected all that is good from himself, and detests the idea of it spreading compassion out of a delusional belief it would deny souls for Hell and thus catharsis in them sharing his torment. It and Parallax are old enemies, though not to the extent Ion is; the war of compassion and fear is ancient, and the Proselyte denied Parallax a powerful host in Barry Allen.
    • Unlike the reprogrammed Indigo rings the Proselyte seeks out the truly compassionate. It is this reason that it seeks the all-loving SCP-999 for a host, and the blob is willing to allow this provided they have mutual control. The SCP Foundation is currently deciding if this should be allowed: benefits are 999's calming abilities will be magnified and become a powerful ally, detriments is that they can't predict any side effects of a Cosmic Entity bonding with an anomaly. The Ethics Community and O-5 Council have yet to reply and this dissapoints the Proselyte.
    • The entity naturally gets along with Jiminy Cricket, what with him being The Conscience. Unlike its brethren the Proselyte is somewhat fond of Nerose Satanel, even if it believes his desire to stamp out all other emotions than happiness is going too far; by eliminating sin everyone will be by default compassionate. The Third Hadou God respects the Proselyte but feels its oppositon is a bit hypocritical given it is happy to ally with the Indigo Tribe, however the tentacled indigo being explains there's a certain limit it feels Nerose passed. The Proselyte is also frenemies with Nurgle; Papa Nurgle has compassion towards all life, but the Proselyte believes making bacteria and viruses equal to the point of infecting everything is misguided. As far as Nurgle is concerned the Proselyte is a full friend, but could be more of an equal opportunist.
  • Applies to the Predator
    • Like Parallax and Ion, the Predator was thought to be something else at first. In its case, Carol Ferris believed the Predator represented her aggressive male side. It split from her and that male persona tried to win over the female side. However it turns out the Predator was in fact the Emotional Entity of love. In its natural state the creature resembles some sort of dragon/dinosaur made of pink/violet crystal. The Crystal Gems were intrigued by this and the being personifying love, speculating that perhaps their ancestors were the ones who's love birthed the Predator.
    • Unlike Parallax who corrupts its hosts, the Predator is corrupted by its hosts insecurities and issues when it comes to love. This is why the Predator isn't interested in hosts, alongside the Life Entity (cannot be controlled) and Umbrax (doesn't seem physically capable). While the Predator is inherently pro the House of Love and Affection, it is against corrupted and obessive loves. Most members of the Romantic Loss, Infatuation and Obsession and Tainted Love sub-houses would likely make it a dangerous force if it were to bond with them.
    • It took a while, but Carol Ferris was able to realize the Predator is love in its pure form and was Good All Along. She has managed to tame and protect it. As with the Proselyte, the Love That Moves The Stars considers it a virtuous force and the Emperor of the Kingdom Dolorus despises it for just that. Another who sees it with contempt is Thouzer, as he believes love is a weakness. However this is on him alone, as the Predator merely regards him as misguided and lost in his conceit. On the opposite side of the coin, it has respect for Anna and Elsa due to their pure familial love for each other.
    • The Predator is under the protection of Aphrodite and Shelyn, what with being love goddesses. The former can be questionable at times, but the Predator is love incarnate and that is to be protected. She makes sure to keep the creature away from yanderes which it is a bit afraid of, and Slaanesh who the Predator percieves as a corrupted version of itself or possibly what a Fusion Dance of it and Ophidian would be like. Aphrodite also protects the Predator from Eos. The goddess of the dawn wishes she got to the Predator first as it may have allowed her to overthrow Aphrodite as goddess of love and even free her of the unquenchable lust. The Predator disagrees as it believes bonding with Eos would only make her curse worse.
  • Applies to Umbrax
    • Even compared to Parallax, Umbrax is the Black Sheep of the Emotional Entities; it is of the hidden underbelly that is the Invisible Emotional Spectrum. There emotions control you, not the other way around, and Umbrax uses it to great effect. Sinestro was able to turn millions into Ultraviolet Lanterns. Umbrax doesn't take willing recruits and regards the Hall of Regret and Shame as potential thralls. Travis Buckle is a surprising choice for its potential slaves due to being a normal human. But he has plenty of guilt to exploit.
    • Umbrax is a purple-black sun, who's native location is a phantom galaxy. It is not the only living sun as SCP-1548 and the Lumas are a thing. The latter are terrified by Umbrax, but the former was intrigued by it. Umbrax realized that the Star That Hates would destroy the Earth if it arrives, and while not against that in general Umbrax wants to dominate the minds of humanity instead, so SCP-1548 is getting in the way. 1548 wonders why it's so concerned given Earth beat it back with the power of the white light, but Umbrax countered this by saying "I want to get even".
    • Umbrax exploits the emotion of shame and guilt, leading to people siding with Doom. It attracts self-destructive people and causes them to act out on their darkest impulses. This has intrigued the Grand United Alliance of Evil, and though he is currently waiting to see more from it Melkor has hopes he may use this to achieve his "Vile Lantern Corps"note . Umbrax isn't convinced yet.
    • It is most pleased by both Junko and Johan's efforts in bringing out the worst of people, inflicting despair and exacerbating guilt and shame. It'd love to make them willing and high ranking members of the Ultraviolet Corps, but they lack a sense of shame or guilt to drawn on. Another being it is fond of is Malal, the outcast Chaos God who represents self-destruction and anarchism. In short, perfect for it and the Ultraviolet Corps' cause. Umbrax itself can relate to being an outcast, as it wasn't part of the conventional emotional spectrum and has spent much of its existence locked away from the rest of the universe. Sinestro is less than pleased with Malal.
      • Despite Malal's animosity with the Chaos Gods, Umbrax has no problem with them. It actually likes Nurgle for its association with despondency and nihilism, which the shame and guilt of the Ultraviolet Corps can work with.

    The Emotions 
Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger, the Personification of Emotions and Monitors of the House of Emotions
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/inside_out_emotions.png
Left to right: Fear, Disgust, Joy, and Anger, with Sadness below.
  • Intermediate in headquarters, Quasideities elsewhere
  • Symbols:
    • Joy- a star
    • Fear- a raw nerve
    • Anger- a brick
    • Sadness- a teardrop
    • Disgust- broccoli
  • Theme Song: Bundle of Joy
  • Alignment: Depends on the person. as Riley's emotions, Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Colored emotions, Ekmanian emotions, Ghost in the Machine, Cannot do each other's job
  • Domains: Emotions, Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, Disgust
  • High Priests: Ara Mitama, Nigi Mitama, Kusi Mitama, and Saki Mitama
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: All who are evil or amoral, those who would tamper with minds, YHVH, The Chaos Gods
  • Opposes:
  • Pities: House of Despondency, Eeyore, Yasha (Sadness)
  • On the day the Pantheon was born, they too were created. As the basic aspect of emotions, they would monitor the House of Emotions and to each others' respective sub-houses. Obviously, Joy is rather happy with what her sub-house would do, Sadness would feel sorry for the House of Despondency, Fear is afraid of his own sub-house, Anger is enjoying the company of being with people who are angry and raging, and Disgust is... well, disgusted that she doesn't have her dedicated sub-house, then again, she wouldn't enjoy it.
  • Everyone has them within their brains, observing how they should emote. This group of emotions, however, is part of the Pantheon themselves and can monitor others' brain to see their emotions. They also could see others that are in the brain at the moment, as they meet Osmosis Jones through Peter Venkman when he occasionally goes to the brain.
    • That said, they are horrified when delving into the minds of sociopaths, serial killers, monsters, and abominations, almost losing themselves from the mind.
      • Thankfully, they don't need to do this often, as each and every living being with a mind has their renditions of the five emotions. That said, certain individuals lack certain emotions altogether or some of them are corrupted or suppressed. For example, the Anti-Spiral's Joy and Sadness are absent and its remaining three twisted to form constant paranoia, Leeroy Jenkins's Fear is all but absent, Batman's Sadness leads while suppressing his Joy just as (Riley's) Joy herself once did with Sadness, and so on.
    • They hold low opinions with the Chaos Gods, especially Disgust in how Khorne is constantly making a mess and gore all around, Slaanesh and whatever it's into and Nurgle? Does she really need to ask? Anger even admits that Khorne is too much for him.
    • They also take pity in those who have had their memories tampered (Sora, for one) and bear contempt for those who do such tampering as that makes their work more difficult.
  • To others' surprise, they are missing another component of emotion: Surprise, an emotion of reacting to unexpected events. Though Fearnote  might take this role depending on the situation.
  • As Imaginary Friends are part of the life of many people and usually joyful, they clearly are companions of the imaginary friends in the Pantheon, especially since Joy remembers one of Riley's imaginary friend Bing Bong. Some say that he materialized in that world and is staying in Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.
  • It is said that they may have played in the role of creating the Lantern Corps, each founding their respective color of the emotional spectrums used to power the rings. Anger creating the Red Lantern Corps, Fear inspiring the Sinestro Corps, Joy giving hope to the Blue Lantern Corps, and Sadness shows empathy to the Indigo Tribe to give them compassion. It is unknown if Disgust have played a role in the Corps' creation, and the origins of the Green Lantern Corps, Agent Orange, and the Star Sapphires are still unknown to this day.
    • They oppose Nekron, leader of the Black Lantern Corps, who is the enemy to all life, and therefore emotions.
  • Since YHVH wants to create a World of Silence, absent of free will, he sees them as vermin that need to be eliminated. All Anger did is tell him to piss off.
  • Anger HATES Ear Worms. Hearing the song more than it should and refusing to stop getting headquarters would ignite him. Of course, not that it would ever stop. Everyone else find it inconvenient.
  • When he gets "REALLY" angry, he would pick something from the swear word button, which he couldn't show since he wasn't allow to use it during the Pantheon's younger years. He's no longer restricted to it, but he does sometimes get cut off by Fear "accidentally" pressing the siren button. However, when they watch a sports game or a match in Summoner's Rift and the Field of the Ancients, not even a siren could get past the swear word.
  • Routinely, they would take turns watching the dreams in the Pantheon, represented as movies and plays presented in the House of Theater. Fear usually commentates them like So Bad, It's Good movies, in which he likes to watch movies discovered by the MST3K Crew.
  • Despite being the monitor of the House of Fear, Fear ended up hating it, since everyone there is too scary. And there is Sinestro, who uses Fear to control, in which he is openly against. Because of it, he practically only monitors James, Satellizer, and Courage, since they are safe in his book.
  • Not many know this, but it's thanks to a research session by Sadness that the often-overlooked and underappreciated Mitamas managed to get positions as High Priests. That, and the Emotions' title is too unique.

The Emotional Spectrum

    Anger: Asura 
Asura, God of Unstoppable Rage (Asura the Destructor, Primarch of the Angry Marines)

  • Good Counterpart to: Raul Menendez
  • Keeping an eye on: Guts, Bloody Marie
  • Approves: Atreus
  • So let's get this straight. A demigod who serves as one of the Eight Guardian Generals to a great kingdom leads the way in slaying a terrible monster, so the other seven decide to kill his wife, kidnap his daughter, murder the emperor they're supposed to serve, frame him for this, and then kill him, all as part of some convoluted gambit to get rid of the monster's kind. Sounds like a terrible plan in and of itself. Then factor in his daughter, now isolated by this scheme, having the power to manipulate power itself (it's called mantra in their world). Okay, so they have a Living Battery to make this work. Here's the problem. The one they got rid of, whose daughter they are using for this, is their strongest and angriest general, and they have rechristened themselves the Seven Deities. If he EVER gets out of the near-literal Hell they put him in... Welcome to the justified carnage of Asura's Wrath.
    • Naturally, he did, after several millennia, find his way back to the living world, taking down the Seven Deities and their armies in painstakingly epic battles, including his brother-in-law and his former teacher. And the whole thing actually led past the Deities/Generals themselves... to the very golden spider that created his universe. Yes, he even took down his world's Top God, earning the title of Destructor; such was his great power, his fury at being manipulated and betrayed, and his desire to protect his daughter. Following the end of his adventures he was ascended after everything he went through was shown to the other members of the Pantheon, in which almost everyone nearly SHAT themselves at his raw power.
  • Has a major fatherly instinct, and really wants his daughter Mithra to ascend to the Pantheon to be with her. Is also pissed off at abusive parents, and has at one point almost destroyed the House of Family with the aid of Devil Jin, intent on destroying Relius Clover after witnessing the latter attempting to "experiment" on his son Carl. Kazuya and Heihachi Mishima weren't spared from Asura's tremendous anger, either.
  • Is often compared to Akuma. The two had a fight so massive that it took 500 years to conclude. Who won the fight is still up in the air.
  • Recently took Sweeney Todd's place as the God of Vengeance and Rage. To this day, no one dares to speak about it, as it was not pretty. Even most of the other violent deities in the house hid in terror after it happened.
  • Despite similarities between the two, Asura despises Kratos with a passion for his carelessness towards humanity in how he often killed all who opposed him with no remorse, even innocent villagers. It brings to mind the other Demi-Gods that he had fought before ascending to this Pantheon.
    • In more recent times, Kratos has learned to greatly temper his rage, and most of his violent actions are now almost entirely for the protection and wellbeing of his son. Asura has not forgiven Kratos for causing his own apocalypse (Kratos has neither apologized nor shown any significant remorse for his actions), but there is some grudging respect between the two for now, as the problems Asura would have with him are apparently already being addressed (Kratos is clearly trying to teach his own son not to follow his own folly with a stern yet understanding hand).
    • With his permission, he allows Atreus to be around Mithra after the boy found his father and Asura to be alike. Asura, knowing that Atreus isn't the type to "seduce" Mithra, allowed him to be around her, on the condition he does not make her cry, knowing that he once lashed out at Sindri in anger. Atreus, flinching at the memory, nodded.
  • Since Asura has had less than ideal encounters with gods in his life, he rarely visits the Pantheon or even his own temples. Although he does go to the House of Combat every now and again to keep his skills sharp, and he has another temple there he uses to rest up.
    • On multiple occasions Asura has been seen with another fighter, his brother-in-law Yasha, when visiting the Combat Pantheon. Although he hasn't ascended (at least not yet) and he looks more calm then the raging Asura, the gods tend to give him space since he seems to be the only one on par with Asura. This thought has given Melkor much to worry about.
      • Unfortunately for Melkor, Deus's ascension ultimately led to Yasha becoming part of the Pantheon as well.
  • Asura gives his blessing to anyone who has been betrayed and seeks revenge. But this blessing comes with a warning, as he tells those who follow him that they should always be careful managing their rage, lest it consumes them. This doesn't mean that he accepts followers, due to his stance against gods.
    • He keeps a watchful eye on Guts, who almost lost himself to his own rage and vendetta against Griffith, for this very reason. This is also why he utterly dislikes Sasuke Uchiha, because he thinks he's not worth carrying the torch of "revenge" since his mind is too weak to handle it.
    Asura: A whelp who doesn't know his place does not deserve to fight for rage and revenge!
    • His opinion of Sasuke has softened over time, however, since he now has a wife and daughter which he protects fiercely much like Asura. He wishes the young man luck and gives him his blessings for being a protective father... even one that wasn't around for a long time. Sasuke in return promised to protect Mithra whenever he can. Asura is also giving his support in getting Sakura and Sarada ascended, so the Uchiha family can be together again.
  • It is common knowledge in the Pantheon that Asura, in the rare instance that he visits, should be given a very wide berth, since an angry Asura is very bad news.
  • He's formed a strange friendship with Pit of all people. Probably because both of them actually like humans and have fought the entirety of their lives to protect them, plus having to fight some really Jerkass Gods in that effort. Some have also compared Asura's father instinct with Pit's desire to protect his goddess.
  • Making Asura mad has been voted "The most idiotic thing anyone can ever do" by the House of Mentalism, Asura has shown no objection since he knows that meant having more time to himself and his daughter. Even Hazama refuses to troll him, after a "mere attempt" caused Asura to use Hazama as target practice for his Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs for three whole days. Hazama was forced to apologize to prevent a bigger beatdown, and the two have agreed to never speak of it again.
    • There is also an incident regarding Lu Bu mocking him for his theme. The end result: Asura delivering the biggest No-Holds-Barred Beatdown the Pantheon has ever seen. And thus the universal agreement that pissing off Asura is a really bad idea.
  • Cell once attempted to absorb Asura in order to obtain his powers for himself. The result was a massive No-Holds-Barred Beatdown in which Asura completely floored Cell. Cell even used his Solar Kamehameha in an effort to kill him, and it looked for a moment it would work, but even that failed against Asura's Mantra form.
    • Cell apparently did receive a MASSIVE power boost afterwards, when he recovered from near death. Whenever Asura appears, however, he immediately leaves for the safety of his temple.
  • Is actually pretty chill in regards to Lucifer, especially because they both share the same ideas about giving any asshole from above a good ass-kicking for trying to mess with them or those under their protection, and since one of Lucifer's similarly named generals fell trying to oppose YHVH, Asura offered his help if Lucifer decides to take on heaven again (presuming Naoki Kashima isn't around to lead Lucifer's armies) and put his knuckles across the Great Will's face.
    • Which he will soon be doing as YVHV provoked Asura's wrath by targeting Madoka. He was amongst the first to sign up for the Pantheonic Rebellion.
    • Also has high levels of respect towards Luka, Lucifer's son, for both his desire to protect the innocent and his efforts to make coexistence possible between different races, something he is keenly aware of the problems of ever since the Seven Deities and humans. He doesn't even mind his official position since Mithra's not the type of girl he attracts. When he learned about how the boy fought and killed Ilias, a Goddess not unlike Chakravartin, his respect only grew further, to the point he doesn't mind letting him hang around his daughter... provided he always keeps his hands to himself. He's also close to Luka's wife Alice because he reminds her of her own mother, and he feels sympathy for Alice having to watch her die in front of her. Given her nature, though, he keeps a close eye on her to make sure she doesn't "corrupt" Mithra though.
    • Despite Asura and Lucifer being on good enough terms, the Upheaval had caused more strain on their partnership, namely the actions of Homura, and the fact that Lucifer instigated those action directly. Following those events Asura had a private meeting with Lucifer, simply to have Lucifer swear on his life that Mithra will never be part of any of his plans, directly or otherwise, or Asura will cut all ties with the GUAC. Not wanting to lose one of his strongest allies, Lucifer complied.
  • Several Evil deities, thinking they can defeat him while he's armless, have sent entire armies' worth of mooks. They taunt him, saying they'll take Mithra away from him again. Armed with only a shard of his master's sword, he eventually got so pissed off that this happened, resulting in a giant arm that wiped out hundreds of millions of minions like rice paper. Even armless, it shows Asura shouldn't be fucked with.
  • Has learned to suppress his Berserker/Wrath form by meditating with Cosmos. That being said, he has a MUCH easier time in accessing his Mantra form, terrifying almost everybody in the Pantheon.
  • Upon learning of the ascension of Gohma Vlitra, Asura has decided to form a task force in order to end it once and for all. Aside from Yasha (who helped him slay the beast), Travis Touchdown, Ryu Hayabusa, Kratos (albeit reluctant), Goku and Augus (just to be able to fight Asura after all is done) have joined him. Though Deus had incidentally started amassing the other Seven Deities for the same purpose, it was Asura's company that would launch an offensive against the monster and succeed in slaying it permanently. While parting ways as an organization, the ex-members are on solid terms; they held a disbandment feast, of all things, that concluded with Asura, Yasha, Goku, and Augus all enjoying a good free-for-all smackdown afterwards as the other three watched on alongside Mithra.
    • Unfortunately, the Gohma later returned to the Pantheon in what turned out to be some sort of pollution incident. Asura was quietly incensed at this, but composed himself long enough to swear he would put an end to the creature once and for all, while recognizing that he can't punch it dead and expect that to work permanently anymore.
  • Despite acknowledging they're all very good guys, Asura originally refused to be on friendly terms with the Chick Magnet Quartet, thinking that they could "corrupt" his daughter. He has even made the Quartet's leader, Issei Hyodo, promise him to never pursue Mithra, and beaten up Hayate Ayasaki when he stumbled onto Mithra after mistaking her for her Ojou-sama, Nagi Sanzen'in. The latter event, however, landed Asura on Nagi's shit list when she ascended to the Pantheon, and also earned him the mistrust of Hinagiku Katsura. Since then, Asura has decided to befriend the Chick Magnet Quartet and apologized to Hayate for his beatdown. Surprisingly enough, Asura has also given his blessing to Issei, for how he gets enraged whenever his harem is hurt.
    • After learning what Issei's ex-girlfriend Raynare did to him to give him self-loathing issues, Asura was imminently reminded of what his own former comrades did to him and is ready to support Issei in any way possible.
  • His absolutely gigantic Destructor form has piqued the interest of the Mecha piloting gods to try to take on said form. He has yet to respond to the challenges, but notes it as being interesting.
  • His reputation as the most Badass member of the Pantheon was cemented with his battle and victory against The Golden Spider (aka Chakravartin).
  • Asura, despite his overwhelming power, has no real political power in the Pantheon, like Flandre Scarlet. Unlike Flandre, however, this is mostly out of choice. We use the word mostly because whenever he is asked for a solution to any given problem, he always answers...
    Asura: Punch it.
    • Now granted this solution worked for most of his problems, but the Pantheons' problems are a little more complicated.
  • It was noted by the Pantheon that when he and Evil Ryu did a Shun Goku Satsu against each other, The Kanji for "anger/hatred" popped up during the fight, which translates out to "Ikari". Some have wondered what would happen if an angry Asura and an angry Shinji Ikari fought (although Shinji's name is written with a completely different kanji)...
  • When asked about his opinion on Shinji Ikari's actions he stated that although sacrificing the rest of the world along with himself was not the "right" thing to do he then admitted that if he and Mithra were in the same positions that Shinji and Rei were in he would have done the same. He then said that hoped that if Shinji decided to use his newfound power to protect those dear to him at all costs then he would have Asura's full backing.
  • Occasionally lends his strength to the likes of Yu Narukami as the leader of Sun Arcana. Asura said he's going to need it, especially in his upcoming battle against Nyarlathotep.
  • Has been seen speaking with Caius Ballad a few times. Asura has shown a level of respect to Caius for his concern over Yeul, though whether or not he's aware of the lengths Caius took for her is unknown.
  • Gets along well with Eren Yeager, considering the two have a few similarities in losing a loved member of a family, being easily angered which is hardly a good option for an offender and being able to increase in size and power.
  • Asura absolutely loathes Sweet Tooth, both for the fact that he's a gleefully unrepentant serial killer, and that he happily killed his own family.
  • Both he and Kenshiro have expressed great respect for each other due to their similar family relations, morals and fighting styles. Although neither has vocalized it out loud, and since Ryu and Akuma have fought Asura to standstills, every member of the Pantheon (including some knowledgeable mortal combatants) secretly wish for and dread the day both Asura and Kenshiro will cross fists.
  • Regarding the Street Fighters, he's encountered both of his famed opponents again in the Pantheon. He and Akuma have both learned to respect the other quite a lot, and while he doesn't think highly of Akuma delving with dark powers, Asura is looking forward to a rematch in the future, as is the Master of the Fist. He can say similar with Ryu, though in his case he's even more curious as the Eternal Challenger has since managed to overcome the darkness that fueled the second half of their battle and tap into a light that is equally powerful. As for that darkness, it manifested in a separate body now addressed as Kage, who actually did draw Asura into another fight only to be restrained by Pantheon authorities. Kage later tried to taunt him into another battle by taking on his costume, which almost worked—only for Mithra to talk him down from wasting more energy on the hollow being.
  • Just as many wish to see an epic duel between Asura and Kenshiro, equal interest is for Simon the Digger and Asura to challenge each other, what with their ability to become ever more powerful, attain planet-sized forms, and destroy creator-gods of their respective universes. Some whisper of a prophecy that the resulting explosion from their fists making first contact will create several new universes made of awesome and GAR (but result in an unsatisfactory draw).
  • Was impressed by the power that Twilight Sparkle showed in her battle standing up to Lord Tirek, especially the "Rainbow Power" she and her friends used to stomp Tirek. That said, he does become somewhat melancholy in the pony's presence, which some would attribute to her sharing a vocal base with his late wife Durga.
  • He is one of the few people outside of the God Emperor of Mankind who has earned the loyalty of Space Marines. In fact, one specific group even sees him as their Primarch. They are known as The Angry Marines.
    • This has begun to worry Asura to some degree. Not only because those marines are a group of completely uncontrollable berserkers, but that it also creates the possibility that he might be one of the sons of the God Emperor.
  • Is somewhat wary of Bloody Marie. While he completely understands the lengths she would go to get revenge for herself and her best friend, he is worried about the item she used to achieve those goals, especially with the risk it presents to Mithra. However, Marie promised him she would do everything in her power to keep Mithra from becoming a Skullgirl, to which he was grateful for.
  • He has gained respect for Might Guy after the latter went so far as to activate the Eighth Gate to protect his student Lee. He was doubly impressed by his god-tier physical abilities as well as his appearance. As such, he helped defend Guy's position after Guy was left a cripple, which had caused some members to question his belonging in the House of Power.
  • Befriended Niko Bellic after hearing his past as a soldier in the Yugoslav Wars. He immediately identified with him after hearing how he was betrayed by a comrade similar to Asura. He occasionally joins Niko and his cousin Roman to go play some Bowling.
  • After an encounter with Yhwach, the Vandenreich Emperor earned the demigod's contempt for his treatment of his subordinates, and sees him as no different from the Seven Deities for absorbing the souls of others upon death to empower him.
  • Has learned that there exists an opposite of himself within someone named Raul Menendez, who like Asura lost everything he loved. However, while Asura sympathies with everything that has happened to him, he cannot except the fact that Raul has decided to take out his anger on everyone else. Asura swears that he will put a stop to Raul's madness.
  • Many fear the day that three of the angriest deities (Guts, Kratos and Asura) might fuse together to create not only the strongest deity in existence but also the angriest being in existence. In fact, some deities have stated that if that ever happened, the entire world would be obliterated by the being's sheer rage.
  • Also has a spot in the House of Combat.

    Calmness: Rachel Roth/Raven 
Rachel Roth, Goddess of Sugar and Ice Personalities (Raven, Lady Legasus)

  • Intermediate Goddess(Greater Goddess when she loses control of herself or as White Raven)
  • Symbol: Her cloak covered in darkness(Her cloak in white covered in light as White Raven)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Chaotic Neutral or Chaotic Evil if her evil side takes over)
  • Portfolio: Empathy, Good Darkness, Cold, Dismissive In The Outside, Caring In The Inside, Deadpan Snarkers, Stoicness, Apocalypse Maidens, Defrosted Ice Queens, Telekinesis, Hating Satanic Fathers
  • Domains: Emotion, Darkness, Heroism, Empathy
  • Followers: Elisabeth Branctorche, Eucliwood "Eu" Hellscythe, Lapis Lazuli
  • Allies: Dick Grayson/Nightwing, Tim Drake/Red Robin, Victor Stone/Cyborg, Garfield Logan/Beast Boy (though they might be something more...), Koriand'r/Starfire, Jin Kazama, Carl Clover, N, Miranda Lawson, Bruce Wayne/Batman, Hayate Ayasaki, Bruce Banner/the Hulk, Aila Jyrkiäinen, Chun-Li, Takumi Inui/Kamen Rider Faiz, Silencer, Jean Grey/Phoenix, Twilight Sparkle, Garnet, Ben Tennyson, K.O., Riku Asakura
  • Enemies: Trigon the Terrible, Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, Nyarlathotep, Kazuya and Heihachi Mishima, Yuuki Terumi, Ghestis Harmonia, Sophia Lamb
  • Mostly meditates in her own House, reciting "Azarath Methrion Zinthos" time to time. NO ONE is allowed in her personal room.
  • The first and only daughter of the greater overdemon Trigon the Terrible, Raven was taken by her mother Angela to Azarath, an interdimensional land where Trigon could not reach them. There, Angela took a new name, Arella, and gave Raven her birth name, Rachel. She was eventually forced to flee back to Earth alone when Trigon discovered where she was hiding, and became a member of the Teen Titans using the name her father gave her: Raven.
    • The reason why she's so subdued is because she struggles to hold her father back; the monks of Azarath, most notably the land's founder and leader, Azar, trained her to keep her emotions—and, by extension, the demonic powers passed down to her—restrained. Were she to lose control, she could wind up getting involuntarily possessed or influenced by her father and opening a portal allowing him to invade the plane of existence she resides in. Considering the Pantheon has been occupied with dealing with gigantic threats like Melkor, Nyarlathotep and the Chaos Gods, Chakravatin, etc, getting Trigon in would just add up further headache. Raven is a very serious Goddess at doing her job for that.
  • She has seen and learned what would happen if Superman would go mad, became tyrannical and removed many of her friends... giving in and doing what she's trying not to do: Bringing in Trigon. On learning that, Raven was extremely shocked... but she resolved to strengthen her will to never let that happen, and not ruin her respect to Superman, while keeping the usual deadpan scowl on her face.
    • To her shock, said version of 'Raven' takes a new form within the universe known as 'New 52', and becoming a more willing servant of Trigon and secretly plotting to backstab that universe's Titans. Raven... is not pleased. At all. In her own words, "She is not me. End of question."
  • She was approached at first with both Jin Kazama and Miranda Lawson, and on one telepathic link, Raven found out one thing they share in common: jackass fathers (and grandpa, in Jin's case). The three struck an alliance afterwards and their wrath would be unspent to any abusive fathers out there.
  • Although when no one is looking and she felt sufficiently safe, she either makes a vision to look/spy at Twilight Sparkle and friends or watch Pretty Pretty Pegasus in private, switching back to her moody self in instant when she detects someone else nearby... even Twilight. She think it'll help her much to not be overly negative.
  • Has taken notice that she's got quite a leg... and with the help of Chun-li, Raven now knows how to use them. Whenever she's revealing her legs, she'll kick REALLY HARD as she's also known as 'Lady Legasus'
    • Speaking of legs, she feels kind of down because whenever she decides to use them, a particular green shape-shifter wasn't ogling at her nice, curvy legs while making wolf-whistles. She's been known (only by her friends, though) to be frequently touring the houses of Beasts, Nature and Shapes looking for him to no avail. The others tell her to cheer up… but know better than mentioning the "L-word" in front of her, since they don't want to be zapped to another dimension where it would take years just to figure a way out.
  • When Beast Boy finally ascended, she went to his Temple personally to greet him, and, in a rare moment of emotion, gave him a hug. He definitely wasn't expecting that, though she quickly told him not to get used to it. She still refuses to laugh at his jokes. That said, the next time he saw Lady Legasus again and resumed ogling her legs while making wolf-whistles, she just gave him a small smile.
    • There have been rumors of them once being a couple, but ever since the DC universe rebooted itself, neither have fully commented on it of late.
  • Unfortunately for her, Trigon ended up unleashed into the Pantheon in any way, making Raven feel very guilty on not keeping him in place. Thankfully, a lot of good Gods here rallied and made sure she's not possessed by her father, and assured her that she did her best. And so, Raven now stand to block off whatever evil her father will bring, with the power of the Pantheons, she think they may have more chances than re-sealing him.
  • Once upon a time, Wiz and Boomstick pit her against Twilight Sparkle in a Death Battle to see who would win...and Raven ended up winning. Despite that, Raven and Twilight are both still on good terms.
  • Has heard that some deities ship her with Damian Wayne. She is somewhat Squicked by this due to their age difference, though the two are on good terms. Plus, she understands that in that universe, Raven and Damian are around the same age, so it’s not too bad in her opinion, even if she’s still wary of it. However, when it comes to being shipped with Dick Grayson, she doesn’t seem to mind it as much and even smiled a bit at the idea.
  • Has congratulated her newest friend, Riku Asakura, on being able to truly overcome the sinister fate his father, Ultraman Belial, has set for him. She hopes that she's able to do the same one day, with Riku very much voicing his support on this wish, promising that he'll be there on day to help her to the best of his abilities.

    Happiness: Pollyanna Whittier 
Pollyanna Whittier, Goddess of Optimistic Outlooks (The Glad Girl, Girl of Love)

Pollyanna as seen in The Story of Pollyanna, Girl of Love 
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A pair of crutches in a missionary barrel; alternatively, a prism
  • Theme Songs: Pollyanna’s Song, Happy Carnival for her anime incarnation
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: The Pollyanna (Trope Namer), Blithe Spirit, Break the Cutie, Cheerful Child, For Happiness, Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold (Disney version only), Happily Adopted, Heartwarming Orphan, Literal-Minded, Plucky Girl, Think Happy Thoughts
  • Domains: Optimism, Orphans, Children
  • Allies: Fred Rogers, Pinkie Pie, Princess Uni-Kitty, Yotsuba Koiwai, Sara Crewe, Pippi Longstocking, Charlie Brown, Butters Stotch, Dipper and Mabel Pines, James Henry Trotter, Madeline, Amélie Poulain, Timmy Turner, Wander, Haruhi Suzumiya
  • Enemies: The House of Hatred and Rancor, Flowey
  • Opposes: Most South Park kids (especially Cartman), Mandy, any god who wants to spread despair.
  • Opposed by: Grumpy Bear
  • Pities: Eeyore
  • Whenever the term "Pollyanna" is brought up, one might think of such words as "happiness" or "optimism". Just ask Pollyanna Whittier, a young orphan who goes by a little philosophy from her father called the "Glad Game", in which she finds something to be glad about in a horrible situation.
    "There is something about everything that you can be glad about, if you keep hunting long enough to find it."
  • When she arrived in the Pantheon, one of the first gods to greet her was Pinkie Pie, who threw her a party in celebration of her ascension. Most gods who reside in the House of Happiness also attended the party. Because of this, Pollyanna was quick to befriend the pink pony.
  • It should be noted that despite certain “knowledge” that she is a silly naïve optimist, she wasn’t without her Stepford Smiler moments as she did crack once or twice when she lost her father and when she was crippled after an accident.
  • Her task in the Pantheon is to find happiness in every god in the Pantheon by means of her Glad Game.
  • As her story was adapted several times, her appearance tends to vary. Sometimes, she appears in a form of a blond girl in a turn-of-the-century dress (similar to the Disney version). Other times, she appears in the form of a chestnut-haired girl sporting a pink shirt and maroon overalls (similar to the anime version).
  • Pollyanna is glad to encounter and befriend several child deities in the Pantheon. Among such deities she likes to hang out the most, they include Pippi Longstocking, Sara Crewe, and Yotsuba Koiwai (whom she once gave an ice cream cone to).
    • She is good friends with Charlie Brown and Timmy Turner due to the former’s determination despite constant failures and the latter’s role as a Loser Protagonist despite having fairy godparents. She believed they are both capable of happiness despite such flaws.
    • She is also glad to find another Heartwarming Orphan in James Henry Trotter after she learned how he was raised by two evil aunts. She believed that not even her Aunt Polly would act like them.
    • However, she is reluctant to hang out with the South Park deities due to their rude behavior (especially Cartman, who frequently mocks her happy-go-lucky personality). Though she does have a soft spot for Butters.
    • As for Mandy, she is told that the Glad Game would not work on her as her smile would result in another universe being wiped out of existence. The Glad Girl has to be careful whenever the two cross paths.
  • Pollyanna looks up to Fred Rogers as a respectful father figure since as she appreciates his kindness. It helps considering that she was raised by a pastor before he died and she was taken by her Aunt Polly, not to mention Mister Rogers himself working as an ordained Presbyterian minister before his success with his show.
  • Although she gets along with Amélie Poulain due to their similar motivations, the only thing holding her back is that she doesn’t know any French. Luckily, Madeline also accompanies her as her interpreter.
  • She pities Eeyore for his apparent life of gloom, hoping to find something that he can be glad about. However, she is somewhat disappointed that the donkey does not have any real tragedy to overcome, though relieved that he can smile when he wants to.
  • Not all gods approve her cheery personality. The House of Hatred despised her on account of her unyielding optimism.
    • At least a few cynical gods like Grumpy Bear were also annoyed by her presence just as she was trying to cheer them up.
    • She once had an encounter with Flowey, who claimed to be her new best friend. Turns out that he was only pretending to do so long enough to trick her into letting him kill her. To this day, the girl regretted paying such a visit. Likewise, Flowey was utterly disgusted by her positive attitude that he would constantly try to break that optimistic streak the next time they meet. At least that's what he tells everybody. He doesn't try too hard when he does, given his true allegiance.
  • She does her best to stay away from any god who wants to spread despair (especially Kyubey and Monaca) as she felt that she would give in to them if she goes near them.
  • Is great friends with Wander, and can be seen traveling with her around the Pantheon whenever he isn't with Sylvia. She is also impressed with how positive Wander is, traversing the galaxies and transforming villains who others would have given up on. She has given him the title of "The Glad Game Master".

  • Scrooge Mcduck has encountered several adversaries throughout his adventures, some more than once, with Flintheart Glomgold being one of Mcduck's most frequent foes. Glomgold is the Second-Richest Duck in the World, a title he's not happy about to say the least. His main motivation in going after Mcduck is to take the title of Richest Duck in the World from him and will resort to anything, including using any sort of underhanded trick in the book, to surpass Mcduck in riches. Those attempts are never successful, but it hasn't stopped Flintheart from trying again no matter how futile the attempts may be.
  • Glomgold had heard rumors of a place far beyond Duckburg where riches beyond anyone's wildest dreams exist. Flintheart saw it as his biggest chance to finally surpass Scrooge Mcduck as the Richest Duck in the World and decided to set out for that place. What Flintheart didn't expect was that his journey would lead him to the Pantheon, a place that the rumors were apparently referring to and where so many characters beyond what Flintheart was used to reside. He was more than willing to use this place as a chance to surpass Mcduck, but rage quickly set in upon meeting Mcduck in the Pantheon. It became clear that no matter how hard Flintheart tries and where he goes, Mcduck will be there and Flintheart will always be in Mcduck's shadow when it comes to money. Despite all this, Flintheart decided to get a spot and to use the Pantheon as a means to further his attempts at surpassing Mcduck.
    • If Mcduck being in the Pantheon wasn't enough for Flintheart to get angry, then him finding out about a wide variety of equally rich beings did no favors to his temper at all. While learning about folks who could be potentially richer than Mcduck should be something that would please Flintheart in theory, he saw them as obstacles comparable to Mcduck when it comes to being rich. Flintheart is more than willing to use any sort of trick to surpass these rich beings and surpass not only Mcduck, but those who could be richer than that.
  • There's been a bit of discussion regarding his nationality amongst certain deities. To start with, he originated from an African country, though some have seen him as Scottish much like Mcduck. This isn't going into a separate set of deities who claim that he is from an African region, but acts very Scottish as part of his attempts to one-up Scrooge (in addition to being much fatter than normal and not even having Flintheart Glomgold as his birthname). For the most part, it's not really a topic that's generally been focused on in the long run.
  • One of his attempts at trying to beat Mcduck in monetary value was eavesdropping on a conversation between Mcduck and a few others about going to Smaug's temple and attempting to steal some riches that the dragon has. It proved to be a dangerous journey for those involved, but Flintheart somehow figured out a way to bypass many of the traps and reach Smaug's lair before Mcduck could. What Flintheart encountered was a massive dragon far more dangerous than many other threats that both Mcduck and Flintheart had encountered in their adventures and conflicts against each other. Not only that, but what Smaug has could surpass the value of both Flintheart and Mcduck. Although Flintheart boasted about his riches to Smaug and how the dragon's treasure hoard will make his richer than Mcduck, Smaug retorted that it didn't matter what Flintheart will try to do and that even if Flintheart did become richer than Mcduck, then there's no way to surpass those even richer than Mcduck. It ended up being a very dangerous task for Glomgold to get ahold of some of Smaug's treasures, but by the time he was boasting to the press about his findings, Mcduck appeared and showed off an even more valuable jewel that was hidden in Smaug's lair, overshadowing Glomgold's findings. All it did was add to Flintheart's resentment of Mcduck even further and Smaug was enraged at both Flintheart and Mcduck overall.
  • Phoney Bone saw Glomgold as yet another greedy man determined to become incredibly rich and saw him as a rival at first. Then Phoney learned about the measures that Glomgold is willing to resort to just to gain money and surpass his rival. Phoney begrudgingly conceded that while he's very full of himself and desiring of fame (that would include trying to get to Mcduck's level in terms of money), he wouldn't stoop to Glomgold's level of earning money and is honestly thankful that he has Fone Bone as a friend whereas Flintheart cared only about himself in the long run. All Flintheart saw in Phoney was a major annoyance and the two have gotten into trouble with each other in their various meetings with each other. A very similar case also applies with Flintheart's encounters with Daffy Duck, another duck with a multitude of schemes to become rich and/or famous.
  • Mr. Burns once made an attempt to work an alliance with Flintheart on the grounds that the two could share some money together and do so to surpass Mcduck's wealth. As enticing as Flintheart found the idea, the partnership didn't last long thanks to Flintheart getting too greedy and taking some of Burns' money for himself when Montgomery wasn't looking one day. During a meeting together after that incident, Flintheart boasted that he'll surpass Mcduck and that it wouldn't matter who gets in his way. Mr. Burns broke off the partnership and proceeded to "release the hounds" on Flintheart, chasing the duck out and starting a bitter rivalry between the two crooked businessmen.
    • By extension, the methods that he's willing to use in order to surpass Mcduck has led to some friction between Flintheart and the amoral rich folks. While some of these specific deities did try to get on his good side to ensure a partnership that wouldn't end as badly as with what happened with Mr. Burns, Flintheart is willing to double-cross them if possible. Adding to these problems is that some of these partnerships ended with Glomgold getting betrayed by his former "partner", further adding to his rivalry with many other rich deities.
    • What might be the biggest factor in Flintheart having significant difficulty in securing any consistent businesspeople to work with him is that despite being very rich, he's known to be very reckless with spending his money not just just to defeat Mcduck, but to surpass other rivals as well. While he does have Zan Owlson to keep him in check (as much as its possible considering how determined and selfish Flintheart is), there hasn't been a lot of luck within the Pantheon in trying to find someone who understands money that can curb Flintheart's more unscrupulous and petty behavior.
  • Ebenezer Scrooge and Jacob Marley were both repulsed by Glomgold's greed and willingness to beat Mcduck by any means necessary. Ebenezer sees Glomgold as what he could have become had he not been visited by the Christmas Ghosts and Marley sees Glomgold as someone who is unable to let go of his desire to become rich no matter what and possibly a worse version of what Marley was like before he became a ghost.
  • Varrick had an encounter with Flintheart during one of the former's travels. Varrick initially thought that Flintheart had a connection with Mcduck, but Flintheart made it very clear that he's only interested in surpassing Mcduck's wealth, a task that Varrick felt was extremely difficult. Flintheart ended up tricking Varrick into tagging along with some money-making plans. As Varrick saw Flintheart in action, it became clear that what Varrick saw was an even worse version of himself and one who would end up being fully absorbed in obtaining money no matter what. Varrick more than understood why he became a better person to begin with and betrayed Flintheart when the latter was busy. Both have made it clear that they don't want to get involved with each other since that incident.
  • Glomgold read about a fatal accident that Mcduck suffered from as a result of cursed gems and had a laugh at Mcduck's expense. Some time later, he learned about a girl named Hazel Leveseque who had with her a wide variety of jewels, but Glomgold wasn't aware of their true nature at first. Glomgold saw the girl and demanded that she hand over some of her jewels to him. Although she felt a bit threatened, she willingly handed over some of her jewels to Glomgold, who was too happy with his newfound "riches" to even know what was wrong with the jewels. A few days later, Glomgold attempted to dive into his money bin and fell on his face, requiring an operation to put him back together. Once that was finished, he learned that Hazel owned these cursed jewels and that Mcduck ended up being a victim previously, which resulted in him not wanting anything to do with her again. Even if Glomgold became aware of the cursed jewels, he simply felt mocked by what had happened and is trying to figure out a way for some payback against her.
  • One day, Flintheart discovered that some of his riches was stolen when he was asleep and demanded to know who took it. After going around the Pantheon trying to find the thief and getting himself into plenty of trouble along the way, he managed to find someone named Wario, having his hands on what Flintheart recognized as his money. Not only did the duck learn that Wario was willing to travel anywhere just to get richer, but that he owned a company. Flintheart also found Wario to be a disgusting person and obstacle during their battle. It ended with Flintheart being unable to get his money back from Wario, so he simply decided to go out adventuring and try and recoup that loss.
    • Wario's break-in wouldn't be the only instance of someone trying to break into Flintheart's place and stealing his valuables. With how much money he has combined with his selfish and unscrupulous demeanor, he's become a target for a multitude of various thieves throughout the Pantheon. Carmen Sandiego is more than willing to break into Glomgold Industries and not just steal all the money inside, but the value of all of Flintheart's riches. The Phantom Thieves have also declared him as a target, not just for his money, but to try and change his personality if possible. Haru Okumura has a particular hatred for Flintheart for being a possibly worse version of her dad when it comes to greed and plans.
  • True to its name, Envy saw Flintheart as a potential target to go after. After overhearing how he wanted more gems than Mcduck could ever get his hands on, Envy approached Mcduck with a task that would involve finding gems that could help him surpass Mcduck in terms of riches. Flintheart was all too eager to take up on the task, but he had no idea that this was meant to help Envy further its goals amongst its homunculi and that Envy never said anything about Flintheart keeping those gems if he manages to find them.
