Sarah Kerrigan, Goddess of Hive Queens (The Queen of Blades, The Queen Bitch of the Universe)
As a Xel'Naga 
  • Greater Goddess borderline Overdeity as a Xel'naga
  • Symbol: The Zerg Swarm Emblem
  • Leitmotif: Ascension
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, can slide to Chaotic Good or Chaotic Evil depending on the day she's having. Nowadays, solidly Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Hive Minds, Alien Parasites, Strength In Numbers, One Women Armies, Attractive Monsters, Ruling Over Planets, Purple Is Powerful, Villains With Heroic Tendencies, Psychic Powers Too Great To Measure, Became A Xel'Naga To Atone For Her Sins
  • Domain: Aliens, Hive Minds, Psychics, Power
  • Allies: Jim Raynor, Abathur, Zagara, Zeratul, Tassadar, Artanis, The Tyranids, Lesale Deathbringer, Mars, Gabriel Belmont, Riku, Zuko, Anakin Skywalker, Killia, Madoka Kaname, Alexstrasza, Oyashiro, Valvatorez, Sol Badguy
  • Enemies: Arcturus Mengsk, Amon, Samir Duran/Emil Narud, The Borg Queen, Trakeena, The Flood, The Combine
  • Kerrigan ascended in control of one of the largest military forces in existence, the Zerg Swarm, whose numbers are in the billions and are still growing, and is herself a very powerful and skilled psychic warrior. However, Kerrigan has yet to pledge herself and her forces to either side, mostly because after gaining her independence, she's not keen on submitting to an authority figure again.
  • Is very volatile and should be approached with great caution. While Kerrigan has mostly reformed for a force of good, she will not hesitate to murder anyone who sleights her with her own hands regardless of alignment, and that's if they're lucky. Otherwise...
  • She is occasionally spotted battling in the Nexus, having signed up there together with Jim Raynor.
  • She was a shaky ally of Zeratul, God of the Void. While they have a history of being enemies, her reformation and Zeratul's advice to her in fulfilling an ancient prophecy that granted her greater powers than ever have soothed the waters between them, and Zeratul is interested in protecting her until that prophecy is done.
    • As a favor, Zeratul has arranged for her lover and partner Jim Raynor to serve as Kerrigan's high priest, mostly out of concern for her own sanity, until Raynor himself ascended.
    • Turns out, Raynor was already in the Pantheon for a long time thanks to Kerrigan, but didn't have a position until Zeratul found him.
  • Her alliance with the Tyranids is sturdier since she completely understands their position. After all, when you've got billions of mouths to feed, sooner or later you're gonna have to invade a planet or two.
  • Despite the Swarm's similarities to the Borg, Kerrigan is an enemy of the Borg Queen, the brainwashing and lack of individuality personally offending her. This is also the cause for her hatred of The Flood, who are arguably even worse.
  • She's... not very fond of Nova, only seeing her as a minor inconvenience and a "second rate Ghost" when compared to her, but not enough to earn her eternal hatred. However, she still didn't take her being with Mengsk and shooting Raynor in the head well.
  • She's NOT happy that Mengsk has found himself within the Pantheon. However, part of her seems to be… 'looking forward' to it. As in, when the time comes, she could call in Raynor and then kill Mengsk over and over again… She'll never get tired of it.
  • In an alternate timeline, she was transformed into a succubus. This one, in particular, could be blamed on Gul'dan.
    • In yet another timeline, she became Countess Sarah von Kerrigan. This has made her enemies with a lot of vampire slayers due to her ruthlessness.
  • With her turning into a Xel'Naga, Kerrigan has become a lot more dangerous than ever before. However, to avoid having more enemies than she already has or making them that much more determined to capture her, she sticks to her Primal Zerg form for now.
  • In light of her new form, she has managed to make a lot more allies.
    • As others who redeemed themselves from evil, she has connected with the likes of, Gabriel Belmont, Riku, Zuko, and Anakin Skywalker.
    • Due to what Kerrigan did for her universe, Killia found a friend in her too.
    • As yet another 'guardian of life', Madoka made herself a fast friend of the Queen of Blades.
    • As atonement is also part of their philosophy, Alexstraza also became friends with Kerrigan.
    • Finally, with her new outlook in life, Kerrigan has decided it was time to join the Grand United Alliance of Good, and plans on forming a group composed of former villains, dark magical girls, people whose philosophy is about atonement, and those who abandoned the darkness in their heritage. Its name would be (as suggested by Riku) Way To The Dawn.
  • "I am The Swarm."

    Mars People 
Mars People, Divine Race of Octopoid Aliens
The Average-looking Mars People
  • Intermediate Deities as a whole. Rootmars is closer to a Greater God
  • Symbol: Their Spaceships
  • Theme Song: First Contact and Final Attack
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Aliens Are Bastards, Alien Blood, Enemy Mine in the Sixth Game, Flying Saucer, Homing Projectile, Ray Gun, Starfish Aliens
  • Domains: Aliens, Invasion, Betrayal, War, Conflict, Kidnapping
  • Followers: Gallaxhar, Exceller, Octoombas, Kang and Kodos
  • Allies: The Martians, The Harvesters, Marvin the Martian, Vilgax, ADVENT
  • Enemies: The Peregrine Falcons and the Sparrows Team, Leona Heidern, Martian Manhunter, John Carter, Amy Wong, Rei Hino, XCOM, Brainiac, Harbinger, The Grineer, The Xenomorph Drone, Inklings, Octodad, Ika Musume, Most of the Ascended SNK and Capcom deities
  • In a world torn apart by conflict between an Evil Army and the heroes who oppose them, one wouldn't expect aliens to be involved in the conflict. Enter the Mars People, who decided to ally with General Morden in hopes of defeating the Regular Army once and for all. Thing is, the Mars People had plans of their own and betrayed the Rebel Army at the last minute since they were only interested in taking over the Planet Earth. Thankfully they were defeated the first time but they have returned countless times in hopes of suceeding but the brave team of the Peregrine Falcons and The Sparrows have been able to prevent the Martians from suceeeding, even taking down their leader Rootmars the second time.
  • Generally they sport an appearance of a squid and come in different types and colours. Their weaponry consist of ray guns, guns that shoot explosive spores, robots and even spaceship of variable size, the biggest being their mothership. The leader of the Mars People is a psychic alien known as Rootmars, being much bigger than them and also having powerful laser attacks. They came to the pantheon believing it was planet earth but they faced opposition from the XCOM who are used to fighting alien invasions and had to establish themselves somewhere to avoid being wiped out and kicked out of the pantheon.
  • Their ascension alarmed the Metal Slug Crew and they were among the first to oppose their invasion. The four are considered by the Mars People to be the most dangerous enemies they have ever faced, them being the primary reason most of their invasions to planet earth failed. And it only got worse when they discovered that they had a few allies who were experts in dealing with alien threats.
  • While they have an established temple in the pantheon, most of the time they prefer to be in their home planet of Mars. However, they were taken aback when they found out that other races inhabited the planet, some even calling themselves "martians". They almost got into a heated conflict with the martians given their resemblance to their sworn enemy the Invaders (who are said to come from Venus) but all confusions got cleared when they indeed discovered that both races were Not So Different and had the same goals. There was also Marvin the Martian, who most of the Mars people considered a bit quirky and think his plan of blowing up earth is a bit stupid consider the potential the planet has for them.
    • However, not all Martians were sympathetic to their cause. J'onn J'onns, better known as Martian Manhunter, considers the Mars People as threat to the pantheon and will not hesitate to stop them if they go too far. His inmense power that even surpasses that of their leader hasn't gone unnoticed by the squid aliens and they are aware of his weakness to fire and will try to exploit it whenever it's possible. They were also insulted that there were certain earthlings that had connections to Mars or even called themselves "Martians", such as John Carter, Amy Wong or Rei Hino and they plan to deal with them eventually.
  • They have a good relationship with the Harvesters being a fellow planet invading alien race. It is said that the Mars People's mothership resembles that of the Harvesters, with both of them being destroyed by a kamikaze plane hitting their core. They also allied with Vilgax given that he is also a Cthulhumanoid planet conqueror but they've heard of his backstabbing tendencies so they have been keeping an eye on him (Granted, the Mars People do that a lot too).
  • As standard for any malicious alien race, the Mars People are a prime target by the XCOM, Master Chief and The Guardians. The latter group often visits their home planet since it's a sacred place to them and since they tend to be fairly proficient at eliminating extraterrestrial targets, they had to secure their home bases in case they got attacked.
    • But this animosity did have its benefits. ADVENT noticed the octopoid aliens after they had a confrontation with their arch-enemy and proposed an alliance since both factions seeked to conquer earth.
  • They may be plenty of evil, but the Mars People even detests other alien races that are too much from them. Xenomorphs remind them of the Invaders that prey of them, with their Queen being a huge rival towards Rootmars. The Grineer's Absolute Xenophobe tendencies coupled with the fact that they have occupied Mars have made them a huge threat to the Mars People and they have been constantly at war ever since they set foot in the pantheon.
  • They may look like squids, but they don't consider themselves ones. Inklings at first confused them for Octolings before they discovered too late that these "Octolings" were far more evil and dangerous. Octodad thought that they were also octopuses and he even managed to full them into thinking that he was another mar person like them, before they found out he was from earth and he almost got fried instantly. Lastly, Squid Girl thought that the octopoid aliens were fellow aquatic creature that rose up to oppose humanity, but they weren't aquatic nor were looking to start a revolution, they wanted to conquer planet earth and Ika was also one of the targets to exterminate.
  • They are said to be perfect for being a Master of Disguise, impersonating General Morden during one of their attempts and even managing to capture one of the agents of the Regular Army. They also know how to create superpowered clones of those they have abducted but after the last clone test subject escaped and caused the remaining existing clones became zombified, they have reduced the production of them.
  • A few of their members made appearances in other titles, engaging in a hand to hand combat against certain fighters from other SNK franchises and a few Capcom deities. They aren't very fond of the squid creatures and would rather beat them within an inch of their lives if they came accross them.

Roger Smith, God of Grey Aliens (The Legman, Ricky Spanish, and too many others to count)

Yrel, Goddess of Space Elves (Light of Hope, Jeanne d'Argus)
  • Theme Song: Yrel (at 1:33:59).
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: The Icon of Argus
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Space Elves, Light Is Good, Taking Levels In Badass, Jeanne d'Archétype, Healing Hands, The Paladin, Taking Up A Dead Friend's Hammer, Holy Hand Grenade, Alternate Universe.
  • Domains: Light, Leadership, Faith, Healing.
  • Allies: Jaina, Tyrael, Thrall, Baine Bloodhoof, Alexastrasza, Aang,, Liara T'soni, Jeanne D'Arc
  • Enemies: Arthas Menethil, Xykon, Redcloak, Gul'dan
  • Conflicting Opinion: Zeratul; while she recognizes him as a comrade, previous experience with the Shadowmoon orcs has made it hard for her to trust anyone using The Power of the Void.
  • Herald: Prophet Velen, an alternative counterpart of her teacher
  • Became friends with Aang after they found common ground in having to take a leading role in their worlds during a war despite their relative ages, and a lack of combat experience or training beforehand.
  • Rumored to have been in a relationship with Vindicator Maraad before his death. Has yet to confirm or deny this.
  • It is unknown what her opinion on the Grommash Hellscream in the Pantheon is, even though she is working with the one from her universe to rebuild Draenor after the Iron Horde's defeat.
  • Often goes to the Houses of Leadership and War in order to increase her knowledge of tactics or diplomacy. She met Jeanne d'Arc during one of these trips, and the two hit it off swiftly.
  • After meeting Liara T'soni, formed a partnership with her, due to both their similar appearance, and their specialties working together well (Liara as an information gatherer, and Yrel as a leader in combat using the info she gathers.) Liara, in turn, sees her as similar to Commander Shepard.
  • Greatly respects Tyrael, due both to his Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right! attitude in regards to mortals, and his former status as an angel.
  • Clashed with Arthas Menethil upon her ascension, due to him being a former paladin who killed many of the other paladins, and causing millions of deaths after he became the Lich King. While she lost the fight, she was saved by the other good Blizzard deities before he could kill and raise her, and has been practicing for a rematch ever since.
    • Apparently, from other deities that healed her, she learned that Arthas has been training via the Nexus battlefields and... well it was kind of reckless of her to challenge a seasoned veteran like that even when she's pretty new in the business. Yrel has learned her lessons well and wonders if one day she could apply to that battlefield... in which she eventually did.
    • Also holds a grudge against Xykon and Redcloak for similar reasons. While she has shown some interest in trying to talk things out with the latter due to his personal history with paladins, she sees Xykon as being similar to Arthas.
  • "Do your worst."

Lesser Gods

Chang'e, Goddess of People of the Moon (Chang-o, Heng'e, Jouga, Goddess of the Moon, Faerie of the Moon)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Moon with a visible outline of a rabbit.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Goddess of the Moon, Turned Into a Mortal Alongside Her Husband, Drank the Elixir of Immortality And Regretted Her Actions Later, Ascended Into the Heavens, Accompanied by the Jade Rabbit, Star-Crossed Lovers with Houyi
  • Domains: Moon, Immortality, Dancing, Rabbits, Love
  • Allies: Houyi, Reisen Udongein Inaba, Usagi Tsukimo, Chibi-Usa, Tyrande Whisperwind, Django, Cecil Harvey, Golbez, Princess Luna, Artemis, Selene
  • Enemies: Junko, Doctor Eggman
  • Mixed Relations: Eirin Yagokoro, Kaguya Houraisan
  • Chang'e in many stories is known as the wife of the celestial archer Houyi. Stories differ how their relation began, was it that she was with him in the Heavens before his exile from there, with her being send with him or that she is related to the river god He-Bo and the two met on Earth. Whatever the case is, one day Houyi received two vials of Elixir of Immortality, which would allow the two of them become immortal. However due of reasons unknown, Chang'e drank both vials, after which she ascended into the Moon. With no one but a rabbit with her side, she was doomed to life her existence as the only person on the Moon.
  • When Chang'e was given the power to ascend to the Pantheon, it was the first time in practically an eternity that she and her husband Houyi managed to reunite. After all, the distance between them is the distance between the Earth's Moon and the Sun. The House of Love actually celebrated this moment due of being one of longest lasting Star-Crossed Lovers stories there is.
    • ...Unfortunately their reunion did not last without problems. When the actual celebration was happening, there was a really unfortunate party crasher who came and stopped the celebration. The woman in question? None other than Junko, who had finally reunited with her archenemy after who knows how long. She was sadistically gleeful for this reunion.
    Junko: Chang'e... Chang'e... CHANG'E!! For ages I have waited for the moment I and you will meet once again! Now everyone witness as I will kill her ten, hundred, thousand, how many times I need to finally satisfy my desire for pure revenge!!
    • To say the least, the whole party was ruined due of Junko's actions. She only stopped trying to attack Chang'e when she was captured and put into custody. Of course everyone knows that it won't stop Junko forever. Now Chang'e has to life in fear that Junko might one day find her and exact her revenge on her.
  • While Chang'e does know what happened to Houyi after she ascended to the Moon, she can't really blame him for it. In fact, she sort of hold responsibility for it as it was her mistake what lead to his Start of Darkness.
  • While the believe is that she is the only human on the Moon, it might not always be the case. In some cases, she is from an entire race of Lunarians. Unfortunately, when she drank the Hourai Elixir, the Lunarians locked her away due of their believe that absence of death is an impurity by itself. Not only that, but due of the actions of her husband, she is being targeted by a divine spirit named Junko who wants to kill her as revenge of sort (even if Chang'e has Complete Immortality). The fact that she can't really do anything to it bothers her.
    • Note that she has no ill will against Eirin and Kaguya, as she knowns that it wasn't really their fault. Though she feels nervous that someone out there is able to create an Elixir of Immortality due of fear what it might do to someone.
    • Speaking of which, Chang'e is also a goddess of sort to the Lunar Rabbits. And while she and Reisen hasn't really met eachother, Reisen is compelled to be with her.
  • There are some stories that once she ascended to the Moon, she transformed into a toad. She can't really say anything about it.
  • Some gods wonder why she is mute when she is send to the Battleground of the Gods. Some think that due of what she did, Chang'e simply decided not to speak ever again. It's not like she can't talk... but sometimes it is probably better that she doesn't talk.
  • While some say that she is trapped in the Moon forever, she might still be able to visit Earth sometimes. For example, she once visited Earth to hold a conference about the state of the Moon. She also does not like anyone who tries to mess with Moon's surface for sick kicks. She lives in there, you know.
  • She has really good relations with those who were either from the Moon or are somehow related to those who have lived there. Which ironically includes Django.
  • There are some confusions on what gender the Jade Rabbit is. Some say that the rabbit is female where as some say that the rabbit is male.
  • She's at odds with Doctor Eggman, due to him blowing up half the Moon.

Commander Torque, God of Little Green Men (Shellduck)
Click here to see his disguise 
  • Theme Song: Horizon Starport
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Ray Gun
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Supporting Leader, Martial Pacifist, The Smart Guy, Drives Like Crazy, Goggles Do Nothing
  • Domain: Aliens, Rebellion, Space
  • Allies: Sash Lilac, Carol Tea, Milla Basset, Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower, Liara T'soni
  • Enemies: Lord Brevon, Raul Menendez, Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa
  • Just as Anthony Higgs was sent to the Pantheon on behalf of the Galactic Federation, Commander Torque was sent here by the Chasers after they heard that Lord Brevon was spotted in the Trope Pantheons. And then he was in for a surprise when he was told that he was already given a position in reserve for his arrival. And there came further surprise upon finding Lilac and her friends in the Pantheon as well.
  • When it comes to Little Green Men, they are either hostile or mysterious. If hostile, they will wield ray guns, speak English, and will ask anyone they find to take them to their leader. If mysterious, they will probably not speak, or speak only in weird beeping noises, possibly abduct people, and then disappear quickly and mysteriously, leaving little trace. Torque speaks English, and he has a ray gun, but he's far from hostile or mysterious, making him something of an oddity when compared to other "little green men".
  • Much like Lilac and the others, he gets along pretty well with Sonic and his friends as the blue hedgehog was the one who got Lilac ascended in the first place. He especially gets along with Tails, another mechanical genus.
  • Has befriended Liara, another alien fighting against an oppressive alien race. No surprise, Torque does idly find her attractive.
  • Don't ask him to drive. Just don't. The last time he got behind a biplane, he crashed into a wall.
  • Is absolutely despised by Raul Menendez. The man once tried to turn him against Lilac and the others as he's something of their leader, but having dealt with the ruthless and cruel Brevon for years, he knows all the standard traps. He is the one time Raul's manipulations failed. Torque actually pities Raul for what he's become, but won't back down if it comes to fighting him.
  • Given the fact that he's an alien, Masato did try to attack him. He wasn't in the mood to fight the deluded Rider. Still, he's quite pissed over the fact that Masato views anyone who isn't human as evil.

Madame Vastra, Goddess of Reptilian Aliens (The Veiled Detective)

The Venom Symbiote, God of Symbiotic Organisms (My Psycho Ex, The Symbiote, The Black Suit, Corrupter, The Spider's Dark Spirit)


    Dr. Hämsterviel 
Dr. Jacques von Hämsterviel, God of Aliens Resembling Earth Animals (Hamster-wheel, Rupert)
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His "H" brooch
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Intelligent Gerbil (hates being called a gerbil, he is HAMSTER-like), The Napoleon, Usually A Harmless Villain, Iconic Sequel Villain, Jerks, Evil Genius, Cardboard Prison, Being Very Irritable, Volleying Insults that are Shaped Like Itself
  • Domains: Science, Criminals, Ego, Fluffiness, Aliens, Irritability, Funding
  • Followers: Ch'p, the Bugs, the Ssi-ruuk
  • Interested in: Most Pokémon (particularly the legendaries), the House of Genetic Engineering, many SCPs
  • Allies: Leroy, Ghetsis Harmonia, Doctors Eggman and Wily, Marvin the Martian, Babidi, Wat Tambor, Dr. Gero
  • Headbutting Villains with: The Professor (on their end), Professor Hojo (on his end)
  • Enemies: Lilo and Stitch, the other experiments, many Pokémon but primarily Silvally, Mew, Mewtwo and the Eevelutions, Iroque, Felix the Cat, The SCP Foundation, SCP-040, The Men in Black
  • Fears: SCP-542, The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog
  • Avoids: The Facehuggers and the Xenomorph Drone
  • Dr. Jacques von Hämsterviel was the financier and business partner of Jumba Jookiba, aiding him in the creation of over 600 experiments. After Experiment 626/Stitch escaped and Jumba settled down on Earth, Hämsterviel enlisted the aid of the disgraced Gantu to get the remaining 625 experiment pods. They ended up being scattered on Earth, and from prison, Gantu tried reclaiming them. When that didn't work and they were all turned good, he took matters into his own hands with a new experiment, Leroy, and planned to take out the experiments and rule through the Leroy clones. However, they were defeated, and Hämsterviel was locked up again.
  • Resembles some sort of gerbil, hamster, and/or rabbit. He doesn't take kindly to those that mistake him as such, insisting he is hamster-like and shouldn't be compared to any other rodent. He doesn't care much for the other rodents, mind you. Some thought he might get along with the Killer Rabbit, but after seeing what it does to those who come too near it, the doctor is terrified of the Killer Rabbit.
  • Abrasive, irritable and having an ego inversely proportional to his size, Dr. Hämsterviel doesn't come off as an impressive villain. The fact that the Leroy clonesnote  are still locked up doesn't help matters. Still, he is an Evil Genius not to be underestimated, even managing to conquer the world in a Bad Future. The Professor decided to work with him since he felt together they might permanently be not so harmless, and while Hämsterviel is fine employing him he is quick to insult his new partner for his incompetence. Felix the Cat has managed to fool both of them.
  • Is willing to employ himself to Dr. Eggman and Dr. Wily. After all, he is a fellow Evil Genius and shares ambitions of conquest, so it's in his best interest siding with them. He is more cordial when it comes to Babidi, however, as they're both short, Napoleon-complexed aliens. Babidi's mind control appealed to Hämsterviel, though it's not going to work on the now redeemed experiments. He's just hoping he can get it to somehow.
  • He has also sided with Marvin the Martian, as they're comical yet sinister evil aliens. Marvin is more Affably Evil, though he's arguably eviler. Wat Tambor isn't the former and definitely the latter, but is otherwise willing to work with Hämsterviel in hopes of weaponizing monsters and other means to conquer worlds.
  • Hämsterviel has hopes of somehow turning the experiments back to evil, in a vain hope of starting over. He finds Indigo-1 some serious opposition as the Indigo Tribe is all about brainwashing evil beings to feel compassion and be good. He finds how the Men in Black deal with aliens to get in the way of his ambitions as well.
  • Interested in the many Pokémon within the Pantheon, especially the legendaries, who he compared to the many experiments. He is willing to help Ghetsis in his own plans in order to get both Pokémon and experiments, all for their mutual desire for conquest(at least until they get in each other's way). His biggest targets are Mew and Eevee due to their genetic potential. Also Mewtwo and Silvally for being more direct experiments.
  • Also interested in the various SCPs, and believes that he can use them instead of the experiments for taking over the galaxy. He almost certainly can't. To his credit, he won't try to touch SCP-542, though it's mainly because he's terrified by the Extreme Omnivore rabbit. He is also smart enough to know he shouldn't bother with anything related to the Xenomorph.
  • Has been working in the House of Genetic Engineering, in hopes of creating new experiments loyal to him. One of the first things he did was try to get control over SCP-040, to make her use her Biomanipulation powers as part of his "Experiment 630+" plan. Professor Hojo will help with that For Science!, however, Dr. Hämsterviel walks on eggshells around him since even he thinks Hojo's a creep.

Emir Wat Tambor, God of Aliens In Exosuits (Wat Tambor, Rosie the Robot)


Facehuggers, Celestial Beasts of Alien Impregnation
  • Quasideities (by alien standards)
  • Symbol: Their own silhouette
  • Alignment: Seen as Chaotic Evil, True Neutral by nature
  • Portfolio: Always Chaotic Evil, Blue-and-Orange Morality, Evil Is Not a Toy, LEGO Genetics, Face Hugger (and by extension, Chest Burster)
  • Domain: Fear, Beast, Space
  • Sibling: The Xenomorph Drone
  • Rivals: The Tyranids
  • Allies: Lord Hater, and ONLY him.
  • Enemies: Ellen L. Ripley, Samus Aran, Baraka, Gordan Freeman, really, the entire Pantheon
  • Natural Enemy: The Hatchling
  • Stalked by: Scarface
  • The Facehugggers, the first stage for the growth of the Xenomorph. They reproduce by first using their mandible claws to grasp the face of its victim and using its tail to suffocate them. They then force an embryo into their victim's mouth, from which a chestburster is born.
  • Often considered the nightmare horror of both female and male reproduction organs.
  • It should noted that the Facehuggers were not ascended legit as some were smuggled into the Pantheon. So far, the most likely people who did this are either GUAE or GUAD. Either way, many consider this a bad idea on their part if they think they can control these creatures. It never ends well.
  • While mostly known to impregnate humans, the Facehuggers can attach to other living organisms like like dogs and even panthers. It can even impregnate a Yautja to create Predalien. And somehow, one even got Baraka and produce a Xenomorph Tarkata.
  • Ritsuko Akizuki once had nightmares of these guys.
  • Ms. Ripley was not happy when she heard that the Facehuggers found their way into the Pantheon. Considering the havoc they cause in her life, it's very understandable.
  • One of the easiest ways to deal with these creepy crawlers is the use of fire and before they hatch. There's plenty of fire deities who would gladly do the job of incinerating these alien scums.
  • There is another variation called a Queen Facehugger. As its name implies, it's able to implant a Queen embryo into into its victim's body.
  • Since their means of reproduction is through the mouth, they are utterly useless against those without them. Which is good for the ascended Protoss (Tassadar, Zeratul, and Artanis), who don't have mouths.
  • Seems like the Metroid Baby sees the Facehuggers as its own natural enemy as they both latch onto their victims' face.
  • As well as the Headcrabs, Lord Hater and Captain Tim get along smoothly with them, as being a skeleton, he can let chestbursters pop out of his rib-cage with ease. In return, all the watchdogs are trying to make sure they NEVER make it onto the skullship.


How well does it match the trope?
