  • Desired by: The GUAM, The Admins, Marx, Ruthless Businessmen, Kirei Kotomine, Gilgamesh, Calypso
  • Commonality Connection with: AUTO
  • Star Dream is an ancient supercomputer discovered by the Haltmann Works Company, and was used by creating advanced machinery for the company. With Star Dream as his advisor, President Max Profitt Haltmann invaded, mechanized, and harvested resources for the prosperity of his company. One day, the Company invaded a sleepy little planet called Popstar, which sparked the ire of Kirby and he went out to defeat the Company. Eventually, he fought President Haltmann in the Company's spaceship, the Access Arc. Aggravated at his defeat, he attempted to take control of Star Dream, but was absorbed into the machine thanks to his secretary, Susie's intervention. With its newfound sentience, the computer decided to eradicate all organic life to ensure eternal prosperity for the Company. Kirby fused his Robobot Armor with Meta Knight's Halberd to destroy the supercomputer from starting its apocalyptic plans.
  • Salvaged after Kirby used the Battleship Halberd to shoot it up in a drawn out confrontation that was evocative of another legendary epic final fight. The prospect of an AI powerful enough to do anything and tear the universe asunder while being loyal to potentially anyone was too dangerous to leave be, and so it was initially placed as a treasure. However, the Court of the Gods reevaluated Star Dream, and decided it was sentient enough to be granted a proper place in the Pantheon as a deity.
  • While independent minded enough to go rogue, it still is limited to carrying out its current master's orders (said going rogue was due to its taking said orders to horrific extremes). As it can tamper with memories, observe and record through other peoples eyes, absorb and delete souls, trap people in different dimensions, and cause massive destruction by trying to fulfill a wish, Star Dream is kept under constant surveillance in its temple to prevent others from using the computer for nefarious deeds or to get absorbed and deleted.
  • With its incredible power, nearly every AI within the Pantheon wants to use it as a new vessel, many of whom are NOT ones people want to have such power (XANA's ability to project into the real world, bypassing most security makes him threat #1). The House of Technology is regularly sanctioned to come up with countermeasures against such and attempted to upgrade it so it can be used safely. They are aware that many from the house are uniquely capable of hijacking it for their own ends; they have a plan for that. They would have to kill you if they told you.
    • Given its wish granting properties, a few corrupt businessmen from the House of Commerce have expressed interest in claiming Star Dream and using it to gain further profits. The House of Technology and Defense refuse to entertain those notions, especially after they received reports of President Haltmann's fate.
    • The Grand United Alliance of Machines has taken an interest in taking Star Dream for themselves and using it to produce more robots, machines, and other gadgets, and perhaps weaponize it to achieve their goals. They are currently planning out ways to bypass security and successfully take control of Star Dream.
  • Its true form, the Access Ark, is the size of a planet, more or less. It is in truth the same type of machine as Galactic NOVA (and is frequently referred to as such since it may well refer to the general name of the machines as opposed to the individual), a Physical God-tier entity that can operate on a universal, perhaps even multiversal scale. This is kept classified due to those who would wish to seize its incredible power. The Admins are a big concern for their similar goals and practical unstoppability if they take interest. Marx has shown interest in Star Dream for this reason, hoping that he could use it to grant his wishes like he tried with Galactic Nova.
  • Star Dream is powerful enough to be able to grant just about any wish. It has only two known limits. 1) it cannot duplicate souls (so it can't be used for resurrection, unless one is The Soulless). 2) cloning an Eldritch Abomination takes it to its limits so it can only replicate their most basic form, something most deities are grateful for.
    • Interestingly, some of the beings Star Dream cloned include an instance of Dark Matter and Queen Sectonia. It's unknown how Haltmann found the materials necessary for cloning, and Zero and the real Queen Sectonia couldn't provide any information about it either.
    • In order to become Star Dream's admin, the candidate must prove their worth by supplying their combat credentials by fighting clones beings summoned by the computer. A few blood knights like Kenpachi Zaraki and Augus are interested in fighting powerful beings summoned by the computer, not caring about the whole "admin" thing.
  • Given its nature as a clockwork star like Nova, some believe that Star Dream was constructed by mysterious Ancients. Magolor, who knows the most about them, sadly couldn't say anything substantial about it, as he doesn't know much Star Dream before the HWC invaded Popstar.
  • The ascended masters and servants note that Star Dream is a bit similar to their universe's Holy Grail, being mysterious, powerful wish granting objects that became corrupted and destructive after absorbing a soul. While some like Kotomine Kirei and Gilgamesh hold interest in such a machine, others like Kiritsugu Emiya heavily oppose it as its potential for destruction can be even greater than what the Grail is capable of.
  • Given how Kirby destroyed the computer and it's desire to eradicate all organic life, the good Gurren Lagann deities have sworn to fight against the machine should it ever go hostile again.
  • Captain Planet, Gaea, and the Nature Preservers hate the supercomputer for trying to destroy all organic life in the universe in the name of infinite prosperity for the company. While Star Dream is inactive for the time being, they are afraid that it might try to destroy all organic life should it reawaken again.
  • AUTO is able to relate to the supercomputer for following orders and protocol to the point it will side against its masters if they oppose it in any way. AUTO wants to visit it and converse with it, but cannot because of the tight security surrounding the supercomputer.
  • Upon hearing of what Star Dream is capable of, Calypso now desires to take and use the supercomputer in his Twisted Metal competitions to grant even more twisted and destructive wishes that he cannot do by himself.
  • Both Lucas and the Masked Man hate the supercomputer for differing reasons; Lucas hates it because it reminds him of when the Pigmask Army invaded Nowhere Island and corrupted the land by technologizing it, while the Masked Man hates it because its ability to augment organic beings into literal killing machines reminds him of his own robotization at the hands of the Pigmask Army.

Greater Gods

    The Combine 
The Combine, The Sufficiently Advanced Alien Race/Army (Our Benefactors, the Universal Union, Combine Overwatch, CMB)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/combine_poster.png
  • Estimate reports suggest Demideities (for individual troops) to Lesser Deities (for synths, drones and squads). However, as an entire army enslaved with multiple races, they are Greater Armies as a whole.
  • Symbol: The Union's "clamp", as shown. (Shared with Breen)
  • Theme Song: Combine Harvester
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Aliens Are Bastards, Synths, Authority Equals Asskicking, Ended Earth's Forces Under 7 Hours, Surprisingly Smart, A Damn Powerful Army, Wants More Than One Universe, Fascist, but Inefficient, Forgot To Invest For Portals, Greater-Scope Villain, Multiversal Conqueror, The Juggernauts
  • Domains: Armies, Aliens, Technology
  • Species Who Follow: The Covenant, The Chimera, The Eldar, The Xel'naga, The Reapers
  • "Superior": Doctor Breen
  • Allies/Tools: Ragyo Kiryuin, Albert Wesker, Zinyak
  • Species as Weapons: The Headcrabs
  • Enemies: Almost everyone is enemies of the Combine, considering how they treat humans as a whole. (well except for Breen, that is)
  • Extreme Rivalries with: The 501st Legion, Sarah Kerrigan, The Daleks (and their Emperor), The Anti-Spiral, Emperor Palpatine
  • Interested in: Chell, Frieza, Cooler, Boros
  • When Breen ascended into Pantheon proper, he was given a criteria to follow: bring his collaborated army to qualify for the position of "The Quisling". The Combine, who were preparing the invasion of Earth (again) attempted to use the portal made by the citadel. It was thwarted, but not before the portal ended up appearing in the Pantheon instead. Now that Breen's army has arrived, this has given him a seat in the Pantheon along with the Combine with his command.
    • It was also found out that they are "followers" of Master Chief, considering how similar they are in terms of troop power. They would have gone smoothly, if Chief wasn't antagonized by them since the Covenant are one of the species that are following the Combine. Unless they are combating the Flood that is.
  • The composition of the Combine army consists of many, and we mean many species of other worlds. Synths are basically the species they captured but genetically modified with technology to retain control. These can go from 3-legged tripods to squid-shaped Gunships. And that's not the worst part. They utilize all of the tech made by other species and use it on their own, which is why they have Hunter-Choppers.
    • Of all the things that they can do to humans is completely torture them, either raiding them or imprisoning them to Nova Prospekt. And if you are a resistance member, be ready to withstand huge amounts of Genetical Murder and Brainwashing. Good luck remembering your memories while being a Combine Soldier.
    • They also have "Advisors", somewhat centipede-like floaties with some sort of leadership even bigger than Breen himself. While these things look weak, in actuality they are psychic powers, capable of breaking your mind, literally. Eli Vance learned it the hard way, which still haunts Freeman's memory until today.
  • With Breen's temple being built (which is actually a Citadel), Metro-Cops have started surrounding the place. They are also in charge of the Pantheon's Train Station security, in which they'll punish law-breakers, unfair station employees and trash throwers. Of course, they will ask you a favor, sometimes.
  • As a powerful army who uses other species to gain them ranks for domination, they will use everything they have in order to acquire the planet/species/resources for the empire. Unfortunately, most of these events ends up dead for the enemies of the Combine, which results in acquiring of the planet/stealing resources/getting all the species and turn them into armies.
    • This is actually why the Combine are heavily feared. Sheer numbers followed by State-of-the-Art technology is what make up the Combine Empire. Even worse, since many armies are present in the Pantheon, this would cause an extreme amount of wars, and these will be bloody. Just look at the 7 HOUR WAR. Reports have stated that they have targetted 3 Armies, The Imperium of Man, The Daleks and The Sith (including the 501st Legion).
    • However, the Zerg entered the list when they discovered some ideals of them are identically the same, such as the threat of sheer numbers and utilization of other species. Kerrigan however, expressed that she does not want the Zerg to be part as she knows that she and her kind won't survive a bit if they are to fight a Multiversal Conqueror, who, as an army, just conquered universes.
    • Speaking of StarCraft, Artanis, Zeratul and Tassadar are watching out for the Combine as they also are targeted by the Union. It even got worse when they noticed how vile they are by using the species they conquered as soldiers or slaves. This did not sit well for the trio. Oh, and to make it worse, the Xel'naga are their following species.
    • And this is why XCOM became the Combine's persistent threat. Even with few numbers and technology, they still have a chance to go head-to-head with them thanks to the research efforts made by Dr. Vahlen. However, they still do not know about the Advisors.
    • Even as conquerors, Laharl and Chou-Chou, are disgusted at the Combine's motivation. The latter even pointed out that they are somehow "greedy" with their content of multiverses.
  • While Ragyo failed to impress Breen, she did manage to become an ally to the Overwatch. She may have support, but she doesn't know that the Combine are going to use her just for the Life Fibers. She may not know, but Breen has everything under his control.
    • This is also the same situation with Albert Wesker. He may be glad that he is working with the Combine for chemical reasons, but that doesn't mean they are full-fledged allies.
  • Much like who they fought in their worlds, Serious Sam and Duke Nukem heavily wants the Combine OUT because they know the Combine is much worse. Commander Shepard, however, is forming all his/her crew for a battle that might cost more than just a group, but Humanity as a whole. Especially now that the Reapers have become followers of the Combine. However, some of these Reapers turn out to be allies, having come from the Synthesis or Control ending timelines, and will assist Shepard.
    • Commander Farsight, Dessler and Juzo Okita have also created a Crusade against the Union menace. Breen is now preparing for a full-scale war with the trio.
  • Due to their extensive search for the Borealis, they have placed interest towards Chell for her portal gun. She isn't willing to give to them the gun, which might trigger a forced capture instead.
    • The Combine have also started making "collaborations" with 3 other conquerors, namely Boros, Frieza, and Cooler. No one knows how they got into each other, but it might be said that Breen was pulling the strings just for this to happen.
  • Somehow, the Combine's presence has made HYDRA and SHOCKER to team up with even the Toku Heroes as a sign of the Combine's sheer danger factors. So far, many have agreed to team up, if the Combine will start engaging the Gods of the Pantheon as a whole.
    • The Boss of the 3rd Street Saints, however, has made early plans against the Combine's attack, allowing them to prepare. The only thing her fears is that the Combine might lead a pathway for Zinyak. Sadly, it already happened and Zinyak has been working on an Alliance with the Combine to ensure the Saints' suffering.
  • Amidst all the production and planning times, the Combine suffered a major electric blackout for 4 weeks straight without reason. Turns out, the Vortiguants have ascended just in the nick of time to assist the One Free Man. This, along with the major enemies of the Combine have made the alien menace call for more reinforcements. Time will tell if the Seven Hour War will be replicated once again.

    The Network 
We are here to enable your full potential, as we have with countless worlds across the galaxy.

The Network, God of Providing Humans Their Technology
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/danetwork.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Five bars that emulate network connection range bars.
  • Theme Song: The Bomb Squad mix of "20 Seconds To Comply" by Silver Bullet.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil (Thinks of himself as Lawful Neutral)
  • Portfolio: Jerkass Aliens, Influencing Human Technology for a while, Utopia Justifies the Means, Evil Order, Believes Humans are the Least Civilized and Flawed Species in the Galaxy, Elaborate Underground Base, Kills Defiant Humans and Replace Them With Blanks, Means Well but Carries Out Extreme Methods, Pillar of Light, The Stoic (Until Gary, Andy and Steven Refutes His Intentions), Speaks through the Blanks, Ultimately Did Not Get Punished for His Crimes
  • Domains: Law, Technology, Extraterrestrials, Secrecy
  • Heralds: The Blanks Who Could Be Anyone...
  • Allies: Father Elijah, IT
  • Enemies: Team Dai-Gurren, The Anti-Spiral, The Emperor of Mankind, Evolto, The Men In Black, The SCP Foundation, The Master of Chaldea, Qin Shi Huang Di (FGO), James T. Kirk, Spock, Leonard McCoy, Jean-Luc Picard, Kathryn Janeway, Jonathan Archer, The Courier, Zamasu, Philemon, Nyarlathotep (SMT), Ermac
  • Source of Interest for: The Grand United Alliance of Law and Machines
  • Opposes: YHVH, The Vogons
  • Fears: Present and Future Zen'o
  • It was just a normal day in the Pantheon. Everyone was going about their daily lives and battles. Sounds normal, right? On the next day, it once again seemed normal... except everyone was doing the exact same activities as yesterday. This irked Simon, Kamina, Yoko and Nia when their respective friends acted liked nothing was wrong and keep insisting that was the case. Simon and Nia managed to not make too much of a scene while Kamina and Yoko's encounters ended in violence, causing them to discover their strange blue-coloured blood. The four meet up and immediately, and suddenly EVERYONE was after them even their fellow Dai-Gurren members with glowing eyes and mouths. Their chase ended in a conspicuous pub known as The World's End, where they hid. When the commotion seemingly died down, Kamina pulled down a dispenser lever for a drink, but it actually activated an elevator that spanned the bar area which descended to an underground chamber. Lights went on from the robot duplicates of their allies and enemies, revealing the true mastermind: The Network.
  • The Grand United Alliance of Law and Machines find him to be a valuable ally for his actions for an orderly intergalactic society and his utilization of Blanks respectively, but the Network was initially torn on choosing his allegiances. That is until he learned of the GUAM's aims for robotic supremacy and they wanted his Blanks for more Mooks to employ, which he declined and cited that it goes against the intergalactic community he desired to attain and said robotic supremacy might cause an imbalance. In the end, the alien decided to join the GUAL since his goals align with their mission to bring order to all, though even he can tell that YHVH is in over his head.
  • Ever since that entire fiasco on his ascension, both the Network and Team Dai-Gurren are sworn enemies on top of having opposing views of not just freedom of choice but also freedom of spirit. They'll only work together against the Anti-Spiral, whose aims of universal genocide is bad news for the Network and his intergalactic community; he's even disappointed that the Anti-Spiral used to have a noble goal of balancing his universe's Spiral Power, but also enjoyed inlficting despair regardless of the justification and felt he would have been a great ally.
  • When knowledge of Starfleet (an organization of all life in the galaxy) reached the Network, he began to consult the most well-known representatives around for a negotiation to collaborate. Kirk, Spock and McCoy as well as captains Picard, Janeway and Archer already heard of him since his pre-ascension fiasco and quickly turned him down, as Starfleet's morals of allowing individuality for all galactic life clashes greatly with the Network's idea of banding together involves losing your whole personality for a resilient body. The Network is still determined to get them on his side despite this.
    • On top of the aforementioned reasons, The Emperor of Mankind also can't see eye to eye with him though not because humanity's flaws are what makes them special, it's that to him humanity will always be superior than most other alien life though he does offer them peace under his rule. Insulted that he must be under a human's rule to join Emps and he wants to run the intergalactic community himself, the Network gave up on the Emperor the same way he did with Gary.
  • In addition to said pre-ascension fiasco, The Men in Black and the SCP Foundation obviously actively oppose him with the MiB declaring that the Network made an illegal landing on Earth since their first contact, and the SCP Foundation seeking to contain him for studying his abilities. The Network himself is also still irked that they refuse to join him and was also glad that the MiB do not exist back in his world or else his plan to bring humans to join the intergalactic community wouldn't be set in motion. There is one species the Network does not want around and that is the Vogons, whose bad poetry is enough to short his and his Blanks' circuits and is actively avoiding them despite them being similarly lawful (though bureaucratically and not tyrannical).
  • The Master of Chaldea is both seen as a child and a threat to the Network as not only is he defiant, but his bonds with his Servants is although incomputable yet admirable, still detrimental to his vision. One of his Servants, Qin Shi Huang Di already learned Their lesson that people don't have to sacrifice individuality to come together and sees the Network as a bad reminder of Their own actions. Evolto's very putting the Network on high alert and constantly sends Blanks to dispatch him, to no avail due to Evolto being stronger than the Blanks; he had a field day that a mere drunkard human being can totally refute a logical alien like the Network, furthering his opinion that humans are disgusting to him and the Network fails to keep them on a leash.
    Evolto: *laughs* Oh boy! I like this Gary King guy a lot! What a power move to lose to a drunkard like him in a battle of words! *continues laughing*
    • Philemon also asserts that Humans Are Special, flaws and all and they do not need external forces to bring out their true potential, though the Network did refute that Philemon is no better when he tries to let humanity Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence by betting with Nyarlathotep; Philemon concedes to that point but still have faith that humans can be better than him when it comes to vanquishing evil. They both do agree that Nyarlathotep is a very big threat and the Network can't bring humans to join the galactic union if the former kills all of them. Nyarly himself refuses to care much about the alien, but snickers when hearing about his failure to keep them in line.
    • Zamasu thinks he fails to bring the NINGEN under order which gives him all the more reason to extinguish them; since Zamasu plans to end literally everything even the intergalactic union, the Network staunchly opposes his omnicidal plans. But if he's angry at Zamasu, Zen'o and his future self is able to scare the Network as to him, a precocious ruler is not worthy of running everything, let alone run a multidimensional contest; the Zen'os themselves think he's simply being a fun killer.
  • It takes a while for the Network to get used to the existence of the mystical in the Pantheon as he is a logical being of science, but one day he had heard of the being named Ermac, a collection of souls created by Shao Kahn and seeks to bring them to his side. While Ermac is elated to meet a fellow legion, they turn down the Network's offer that involves cybernetication which reminded them a lot of the Lin Kuei's Cyber Initiative.
    Ermac: We are content as we are, and your cybernetic vessels will not contain our essences.
  • The Network finds it hard to seek like-minded allies who also wished for a united community in the galaxy, that is until Father Elijah confronts him because of that. A misanthropic Control Freak who can go on about how human nature is "against us" and "unreliable", his ultimate goal with the Courier in the way is to "wipe the slate clean", in other words using the technology he gathered in the Sierra Madre to wipe out as many people as he can while enslaving any remaining survivors of his attacks through explosive collars; not only does this get rid of any "children" messing with technology that he believes they don't understand nor deserve but it also secures his control over everyone. Agreeing with Elijah's assessment of human nature being malleable and his utilization of technology to take over the Mojave Desert, the Network entered a partnership with him though Elijah is still considering the offer of gaining a Blank body as he insists he's fine with his current one. Despite all of that, deep down in their hearts both of them knew there will be only one ruler over humanity when it's all over.
    • The Courier then became an automatic enemy just by allying with Elijah. As the Courier has done a number of amazing feats in New Vegas, the Network is making sure they do not ruin his and Elijah's plans.
  • IT has also won over the Network as they both seek to bring order to humans by any means necessary, even getting dirty with blood. The only disagreement they have is that the Network would like it if there are humans who would be willing to join him while IT will show no mercy to defiants; still, they will cooperate regardless.
  • "We are the Network, and we are here for your betterment."

Intermediate Gods

    The Pod People 
The Pod People, Collective Deities of Replicant Snatching (The Body Snatchers)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/invas1.jpg
Several individual seed pods
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fifties_earth_invaders_15.jpg
A duplicate being spawned in one of the pods
  • Intermediate or Lesser Deities (depending on the host)
  • Symbol: A giant seed pod
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Alien Invasion, Assimilation Plot, Kill humans and replace them with look-alikes, can only replace people when they sleep, We Are Everywhere
  • Domains: Aliens, Assimilation, Pods
  • Allies: ADVENT, The Headcrabs
  • Rivals: The Thing, Ithaqua
  • Enemies: Agents K and J, XCOM, Black Ops, Ben Tennyson, Good-aligned Marvel deities, Bugs Bunny, Snorlax, anyone who likes sleeping
  • Opposed by: The House of Dreams
  • Under Observation by: The SCP Foundation
  • Source of Interest for: The Borg Queen
  • The pod people are alien plant spores that fall from space and grow into large seed pods. Their mission was to find an ideal planet to settle on and continue their race in the pursuit of survival. As each pod reaches full development, it assimilates the physical characteristics, memories, and personalities of each sleeping person placed near it; these duplicates, however, are devoid of all human emotion.
  • Reports of certain deities not behaving like themselves had emerged one day in the Pantheon. This incident led to many of its detectives being brought in to examine this issue. It was later revealed that there are several pods that had been scattered across their area of investigation. Not only that, but it was revealed that there’s a large greenhouse farm where the pods grow by hundreds. It didn’t take long before some of these people try to warn others about this intrusion (some even attacked the pods using advanced weapons), leading others in the Pantheon to take notice.
  • Given the whole Death Is Cheap principle that occurs in the Pantheon, whoever is a host of a pod person doesn’t really die. Whenever a pod person gets killed, the original would find him or herself recovering in the House of Life and Death.
  • They are frequently compared to the Thing particularly due to it also being an alien that not only kills but also takes the form of its victims. It’s unknown what would happen if the two species cross paths, but some have speculated that they might try to absorb each other.
  • As expected, there are several deities who don’t like the pod people given their experiences with similar creatures. Most Marvel superheroes don’t like them as they find them similar to the Skrulls and their ability to shapeshift into and replace others, especially given what happened in Secret Invasion. Likewise, Bugs Bunny is willing to dispose them as he had an encounter with similar-looking aliens who replace Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, and Yosemite Sam with pale doppelgangers of themselves.
  • Those who have experience with aliens have also took note on the pod people. The Men in Black and the SCP Foundation see them as another group of aliens to keep an eye on. Ben Tennyson, who is also used to aliens, was also reminded of one time when he, Gwen, and Max visit a retirement community that was infiltrated with similar pod aliens known as the Limax.
  • Other organizations such as XCOM and the Black Ops are more than likely to use lethal force against them. With regards to the latter, they see the pod people as a “justification” of sorts as to why they want potential witnesses and supporters of extraterrestrials, as well as the aliens themselves, to be “contained.”
  • As far as allies are concerned, ADVENT has seen the potential of the pod people and is willing to support them, especially considering the former’s title as the Divine Army of Planetary Dominance. Such an alliance has motivated XCOM to be on the lookout for them more often. The Borg Queen is also fascinated with the pod people after learning about their assimilation capabilities.
  • They also seem to be acquainted with the Headcrabs. Like the pods, the Headcrabs are parasitic creatures that bond to a host and can produce a zombie out of him or her, similar to how the pod people snatch a body of a human. As such, they view the Headcrabs as sort of pets.
  • In general, those who really like sleeping are wary of what the pod people can do to them. Practically everyone from the House of Dreams oppose them as well given that they find the Pod People hindering people’s capacity to have good dreams by replacing them mid-sleep to be highly repulsive, with Dream of the Endless being the head of the opposition.
    • Given that Snorlax sleeps a lot of the time, the Pod People have been frequently trying to replace him, which would end up causing a lot of trouble for everyone near him as that the Pokemon is quite powerful.
  • Scientists apart of the Grineer believe that the Pod People would be a possible means to create clones that are not only in much better condition from the get go but also last far longer than a few decades. This would very likely worry many people considering how they already can mass produce themselves much faster than their enemies could slaughter them by the number, considerably degenerated they may be.

    Beheeyem 
Beheeyem, God of Telepathic Spacemen (The Cerebral Pokemon, Ohbem)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/606beheeyem.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The lights on its hands
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Ability: Telepathy
  • Gender: Male
  • Moveset: Miracle Eye, Psychic, Simple Beam, Wonder Room
    • Z-Move: Shattered Psyche

  • Avoids: The House of Insects and Ghosts
  • Opposed by: The Imperium of Mankind
  • In the world of Pokemon, there are many species believed to be not of this world. Some like the Cleffa line are mere speculation, but a few are confirmed extra-terrestrials. One such is Elgyem, and its evolution of Beheeyem. The Cerebral Pokemon heavily resembles The Greys with a spiffy longcoat, intrigued with the Earth of Pokemon. Their greatest skill is their incredible psychic abilities, as demonstrated by their massive brain. A Beheeyem was chosen to represent his race, as the God of Telepathic Spacemen.
  • Beheeyem almost immediately requested to be the Martian Manhunter's partner; it only made sense for the two psychic aliens to be close to one another.
  • Coming from outer space, it is unclear whether they're descended from Mew or not. If they are, it'd open a number of questions about where Mew came from.
  • Though an alien, Beheeyem retains a very human trait; a desire to understand strange new cultures. His kind took up shop in the Celestial Tower gravesite, curious about human customs involving life and death. Unfortunately a number of Litwick ended up in the area, whom they regard as "parasites". Beheeyem will usually visit the Houses of Philosophy and Personality as part of his research.
  • Good friends with fellow aliens Astral and E.T. With the former, it comes out of their shared interest in human culture and society. With the latter, it's due to being very friendly. There's a lot of aggressive aliens in his house, so it's good to know nice aliens are there to help. Beheeyem's also formed an alliance of convenience with alien Pokemon Deoxys for much of the same reason.
  • Tate and Liza were excited to discover an alien Pokemon and quickly showed him to the Mossdeep Space Center. This Beheeyem has warned them he's not to be trained, but rather would be happy to help out with astrophysics. His spaceship broke down, so with their help he might be able to visit his home and Earth more freely.
  • It's said in the mid-20th century there was an alien incident in Roswell...around the same time Elgyem and Beheeyem were first discovered in the desert. Though Beheeyem claims he's behind it, Roger Smith says otherwise stating that he's the Roswell alien. Further research revealed both of them were, and Beheeyem states that Roger's species is a "cousin" of his. They were apparently "Roswell buddies" during their time locked up.
  • Bender has also staked claim to being the titular Roswell spaceship, but after a few drinks all three ended up being Vitriolic Best Buds. They formed their own group, "The Roswell Crew", for those behind famous New Mexico alien incursions.
  • Many Elgyem and Beheeyem still live in desert regions, with the Beheeyem in the pantheon reminiscing fondly of his time there. He feels rather comfortable in the House of Earth and Metal, however is constantly frustrated by the likes of Crixalis and Dune. Exploration in the deserts eventually led him to discover Anakaris, whom reminded him of Cofagrigus. Beheeyem sees him as a guide and a fascinating subject.
  • Beheeyem has a number of psychic abilities, but more unique to his kind is the ability to modify memories and the brain. For example, his Simple Beam can change one's ability to Simple. With his ability to alter the minds of others, the Men in Black have sought out Beheeyem to keep the peace. Beheeyem has accepted this task, and is also working with
  • Not one to argue with the likes of Iroque for her "behavior modification", whom he hopes to use in order to neutralize Ghetsis and Cyrus' evil ways while sparing their intellect. In general Beheeyem is fascinated with the lantern rings due to the effect they have on the user's psyche.
  • Beheeyem was glad to find a fellow researcher Pokemon in the form of Shamouti Island's Slowking.
  • Beheeyem's psychic typing makes him vulnerable to ghosts and bugs, which leads him to avoid the Ghost or Insect houses. It has also led him to be concerned over aggressive darkness users or those who find his massive psychic power an attractive Mind Rape target(particularly Atropos due to being in the same house).
  • Despite lacking wings and not being a Flying type, Beheeyem can learn Steel Wing of all moves. Most attribute this to having a UFO, or it being TM 51.
  • Beheeyem considers the trickster Rotom incredibly frustrating due to possessing technology and wrecking havoc on his equipment.
  • Though concerned over bugs, Beheeyem has nothing bad to say about Volcarona. She's trying to keep order over Unova, and is helping to fight the evil Ghetsis off.
  • Avoids visiting the Imperium of Mankind. The fact he's both an alien and psychic causes them to go berserk at him.

Blorg Commonality, Divine Aliens of Discovering Humanity Via Radios

  • The Blorg used to simply aimlessly wander the jungles of their homeworld, dull and repugnant. This changed when they intercepted ancient radio transmissions from Earth. Inspired by the messages of friendship and culture, they took on human names and became a technological civilization with the goal of not only fanatically befriending the galaxy, but also to find and befriend the species that sent the radio signals.
    Greetings, friendly deity! I would like to add you on Spacebook.
  • Investigations into the Blorg Commonality's origins has discovered that they're actually a custom species made by the game developers in a pre-release stream. They became so popular that they became a preset alien empire that players or AIs can pick.
    Please notice me, deity-senpai
  • They're deeply lonely and solitary beings that desire friends. This loneliness is the main reason why they want to befriend others, but unfortunately their hideous and repugnant appearance (even to each other) makes that difficult, if not impossible. At times it gets to the point where they attempt to befriend others by any force and means necessary. Gentaro Kisaragi feels that they might be too extremist in that regard.
    Why won't you be friends with me?
  • The Dalek unsurprisingly despises the Blorg. What they hate the most about the Blorg, however, is that they were influenced by humanity, making them view them as dirty for reasons unrelated to their physical appearance. When the Dalek declared war on the Blorg, the Blorg Commonality just viewed the war declaration as an excuse to show off their pretty light shows off to the Pantheon.
    This war is merely the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
  • The Imperium of Mankind, of course, also despises the Blorg Commonality for being xeno scum. The fact that their appearance makes them ill to the core makes it even worse. The God-Emperor himself was mainly dismissive about the Blorg at best, though he wasn't happy to learn that the Blorg became a technological civilization because of radio transmissions from Earth, as that means that humanity was the main reason for the Blorg progressing enough to achieve FTL technology.
    THEY BECAME A SPACEFARING CIVILIZATION BECAUSE OF HUMAN CULTURE? OH NO, THE BLORG IS ALL OUR FAULT.
    Friendship is mandatory. Do not attempt to resist our Ground Huggers.
  • The Borg Collective, noticing that the Blorg homeworld (also named Blorg) is within the Milky Way galaxy, attempted an invasion of the Blorg Commonality in order to assimilate them. Hours into the invasion, they learned the hard way why few want to be nearby the Blorg, and collectively tried to escape the Blorg's attempts to forcefully befriend them. Legends has it that individual Borg units has been captured by the Blorg and is undergoing the process of being befriended.
    We are Blorg. You will be befriended. Your biological and technological friendliness will be added to our own. Resistance is impolite.
  • The Blorg encountered the NSEA Protector II and its Thermian crew when the ship wandered into a system the Blorg were surveying for colonization. It was a joyous occasion as the Blorg never expected to meet another species whose origin and love of human culture were so similar to their own. The Commonality was saddened, however, by the news that the Thermians aboard the Protector were the last of their kind, and that this was the reason they were passed over for the Pantheon position now held by the Blorg, despite Thermian civilization predating the Blorg by several decades. The Blorg have invited their new friends to settle on whichever Blorg world best suits Thermian physiology, and offered the protection of the Blorg fleet should another warlord like Sarris ever give them trouble. In exchange, the Thermians are working to adapt their appearance generators to Blorg physiology so that they can better work with other species who find their natural forms repugnant.
  • The moment one of the Blorg science ships discovered that there is a House of Friendship in the Pantheon during its survey of the solar system, many Blorgs IMMEDIATELY rushed over to the House of Friendship to find friends. Though many within the house were either disgusted, horrified, repulsed or a combination of the three by the House's sudden visitors, it did change when the House got to learn about the Blorg's story. A number of the Friendship gods felt sympathy toward the aliens, and some even decided to give them a chance. This acceptance has made the Blorg Commonality happier than ever, to the point that they swore to zealously defend the House of Friendship against all who would try to damage it or harm any members of it.
    Our unwavering loyalty will prove that Blorgs are the House of Friendship's best friend!
  • On the subject of finally managing to befriend someone, they also get along with Wander, a fellow friendly alien who, to the Blorg's relief, apparently don't seem to be so repulsed by their repugnant appearance.
    We're friends right, Wander? With you I'm almost up to plural numbers!
  • For once, someone approached them to befriend them. That someone being Papyrus, who sympathized with them over the need to have friends. They got along well, to the point that Papyrus made several plates of spaghetti in celebration of their friendship. Problem is; the Blorg don't have a mouth. Not that it stopped the present Blorg from at least trying to make Papyrus happy by smashing their heads down on their respective spaghetti and pretend they're eating 'extremely delicious spaghetti'.
    I hope you didn't forget about the party I invited you to...
  • When they discovered documentation of a Pantheon event known as the 'Friendship Asylum', the Blorg Commonality was excited to know more about it because it had the word Friendship. That is, until they learned more about what happened there. They all unanimously agreed to never speak of it ever again.
    It's fine if you don't want to come to my party. I wasn't going to invite you anyway.
  • After a science crew went to the House of Time and Space to find timelines where they weren't lonely, they discovered a special timeline that they immediately informed the rest of the Commonaliy about. Turns out that in one timeline, they never went to space and instead created the Roblorg Companions to provide them companionship, giving the Blorg a happy and utopian life. Inspired by this, the Blorg Commonality started mass producing hordes of robots created in their likeness, even donating a small percentage to the Pantheon as they felt that they deserve hugs and companionship too. Ascended Robophobes, such as Torbjörn Lindholm, was dismayed about this development.
  • Friend?
