Intermediate Gods

    Acena/Dark Grasper 
Acena, The Goddess With Glasses (Dark Grasper, Anko Isuna, Tail Black)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5a85c1ab6fe18b026bea1b136e385d62.png
Dark Grasper 
Anko Isuna 
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her glasses and the horned headdress of her Glasses Gear
  • Alignment: Working as Neutral Evil, otherwise True Neutral with Chaotic edge; most likely Neutral Good as Tail Black
  • Portfolio: Girls With Glasses, Being Serious About Them, Girlish Pigtails, Human Alien, Dark Magical Girl, Evil Diva, Loony Fan, Chainmail Bikini, Badass Cape, Darkness Glaive, Darkness Whip, Chaosic Infinity, Idol Singer As A Disguise, Stalker with a Crush
  • Domains: Glasses, "Magical" Girls, Stalkers
  • Allies: Naka, Ryoubi, Ritsuko Akizuki, Sho Marufuji, Carly Nagisa
  • Enemies: Courtney Gears, anyone who would diss on glasses
  • Loony Fan forwards: Souji Mitsuka/Tail Red (might be allies)
  • A young alien girl who has a sort of obsession on wearing glasses. So obsessive that after observing that the "glasses attribute" was starting to drop due of less and less people started to wear glasses, she decided to join with Ultimaguils in order to spread and reserve it so that the Ultimaguils themselves wouldn't make it extinct. Yeah, we know.
    • Because of her rather loose reason to be evil, she was sort of laughed out of the GUAE, which she didn't care about. Since she's the Goddess of Glasses now, she doesn't need their help. And that she might become good in the future helps her abandonment.
  • It is best to never claim that someone looks better without glasses around her. She is not a slouch of a fighter with her Darkness Glaive and Whip, which she can swing inhumanly fast. And if she wants to get rid of someone, she can use Chaosic Infinity to trap them in a subspace which plays out their greatest desires. Only a strong will is able to break out of it, and only if they can see through the illusion.
  • She once looked at Homura Akemi during her school days. She says that maybe if her was longer, she would have pulled off a "brained twintails" look. And not had killed off Kerberus Guildy for wanting her to braid her hair.
  • She has a Transforming Mecha servant called Mega Neptune Mk.II (or Mega Ne as she calls her). She usually tries to tell people that Acena is actually rather shy normally and would like to have some friends, usually leaving behind stuff like her email address so that people can stay in contact with her.
  • Is surprisingly good of an idol singer. However, besides what you might think, she does not intent to use it to brainwash people. She just wants to use it as a trendsetter. That is why she dislikes Courtney Gears for actually using music for brainwashing.
  • Is rather disappointed that there isn't a goddess who shares her voice who also wears glasses. Besides Rias Gremory but they have bit of a bad blood considering that she almost took away Souji's love for twintails by kissing him. Though Acena says that she wasn't intending that to happen and was disappointed on Tail Red because of that until she got her crap together.
    • Though after some persuading, she got Ryoubi to start wearing some glasses occasionally. Ryoubi doesn't mind Acena (her breasts are small enough for her).
  • Is a total fan girl for Carly Nagisa's glasses, especially because those glasses were a key from saving the entire world from the wrath of the Dark Signers. Carly is a little weirded out by this though.

    Captain Commando 
Captain Commando, God of Always wearing Sunglasses (Mars Carlisle)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/captain_commando.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A badge with "Captain Commando" engraved on it
  • Theme Songs: Stage 1 (City), his Marvel vs. Capcom
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: The First CAPCOM icon, Beat 'em Up, The Captain
  • Domains: Heroes, Future, Abandoned Icons,
  • Heralds: The Commando Team (Mack the Knife/Janetty, Ginzu/Sho Takegami, Baby Head/Hoover J. Estefan) and Aya Maverick
  • Allies: Megaman, Ryu, Strider Hiryu, Guy, Mike Haggar, Cody Travers, Reiji Arisu & Xiaomu, Bruce Wayne/Batman, Tony Stark/Iron Man, Steve Rogers/Captain America, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, Lara Croft, Captain Falcon, Axel Stone, Blaze Fielding and Adam Hunter, Geo Stelar
  • Enemies: Dr. Wily, M. Bison, Mr. X, Ridley, The Eliksni
  • Captain Commando is the leader of the Commando Team, a group dedicated to combat crime and stop evildoers. In a futuristic world threatened by an Evil Overlord named Scumocide (Or Genocide depending the region), the Commando Team would battle the organization and best Scumocide and his lackeys, saving the world in the process. Years later, the good Captain himself would be chosen for godhood, though only because of his peculiar use of sunglasses even at night.
  • The Captain announced his presence after foiling an attempt by several agents of the Grand United Alliance of Evil to destroy the House of Heroism, most people having no idea who the Captain even was. Commando then was ascended properly and he is usually seen patrolling the Pantheon halls accompanied by Jennety/Mack, Ginzu/Sho and Baby Head/Hoover.
  • Captain Commando is no strangers to world-ending threats and once teamed up with several heroes from both the Marvel and Capcom universes in numerous occassions. He's made friends with fellow heroic captain Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America and later got to meet Tony Stark in the fight against Abyss. Many wonder after Onslaught's dissapearance if Captain Commando was the one that took him down.
  • Naturally close with the heroes of Metro City as both them and the Commando Team share a lot in common and the Captain would gladly help them against the Mad Gear if they ever rise again. Some believe that the Captain hails from a futuristic Metro City, one which somehow still has Haggar as the mayor (or a descendant of him judging from the uncanny similarity).
  • During one of the usual routine patrols by the Commando Team, they ended up coming accross some goons that apparently belonged to the Syndicate run by notorious crimelord Mr. X. One swift beatdown later, the Commando Team joined forces with one of Mr. X's worst enemies, Axel Stone, Adam Hunter and Blaze Fielding and stormed his temple in order to arrest him. Since then, Captain Commando occasionally visits the trio and hangs out with them from time to time.
  • Captain Commando has had a few run ins with mutants, robots and Mad Scientists and from his friend Megaman he has heard word of Dr. Wily and he is definitely up to no good. Commando and his teammates have been tracking Wily's movement and have warned him that he would face justice if he ever attempts something funny.
  • Speaking of tracking, his glasses are far more useful than simply aesthetic. As one could've guessed, his future world is as riddled with crime and terror as it is highly technologically advanced, and Captain Commando is very dedicated to stopping criminals and terrorists. The "Captain Goggles" are actually space scanners linked to a criminal database, allowing Commando to access existing criminal data on anyone he puts his eyes on, with clarity of vision enhanced for detection anywhere within 2 kilometers' distance. He can literally see any criminal just about over a mile away.
    • The God of Special Glasses would've had a contender were it not for how consistently Commando actually wears his glasses, allowing him to take on this different trope. As such, both the Captain and Geo Stelar are grateful for this, occasionally working together to protect their House.
  • A rather forgotten fact about Captain Commando is that he used to be the Mascot for Capcom before he was swiftly forgotten, though he still remains popular in a few circles. Popularity doesn't concern the Captain but he has made friends with those that have been in the same situation like Crash Bandicoot or Lara Croft.
  • You might have figured that the Captain hails from the future and that means he has faced a lot of alien criminals besides Scumocide. Word says that the overlord didn't perish after the Commando Team defeated him and that he contracted a few of the Pantheonic Space Pirates to crawl his way into the Pantheon and get his revenge on Captain Commando. Ridley paid a visit to the Commando Team but had to retreat after understimating them. The Eliksni being pretty desperate for any kind of treasure accepted the work given by Scumocide to try and destroy Captain Commando, with little success.
  • Captain Falcon once challenged Captain Commando to a duel to see who is the better fighter and the two fought to a standstill. Impressed, he invited Commando to participate in a race but the latter declined, preferring to focus on cleaning the Pantheon of crime.
  • He's noticed that over the years a lot of people have donned his costume like Charlie Nash and Chuck Greene. He is confused but amused that some people would try to replicate his image, even if his moves are mostly impossible to replicate.

    Relius Clover 
Relius Clover, God of Irisless Eye Masks of Mystery (Colonel Clover, The (Mad) Puppetteer, The One)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/relius_clover_cf.png
  • Intermediate God (Lesser God after his wrecking defeat, though recovered after that)
  • Symbol: His mask, aside of his opera cape...all worn by Ignis on his Emblem
  • Theme Music: Plastic Night
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil, with shades of Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Badass Colonels, Utter Depravity, Love For Opera, Mad Scientist, Mask Power, Straw Nihilists, Attempts On Killing Own Son, Necromantic, Having A Secret Motive, Sadistic Tortures of Body and Mind, Sociopathy, Rape Subtext Both Comedic and Dramatic, Making Dog-kicking and -raping a hobby, Alchemy Is Magic, The One of the Ten Mages
  • Domain: Depravity, Fatherhood, Knowledge, Nihilism, Theater, Puppetry, Alchemy
  • Allies: Ghetsis Harmonia, The Huckebein Family, Yuuki Terumi, Ragyo Kyruin, Wilhelm "Deathshead" Strasse, Kazuya Mishima, Gendo Ikari, Father Homunculus, Geese Howard, Shang Tsung, Tenjuro Banno, Arakune?
  • Enemies: Carl Clover (his son); Johann Faust VIII, Mayuri Kurotsuchi, Miki Aono, Guile, Archer, Frank Castle/Punisher, William "B.J." Blazkowicz, Colonel Roy Mustang, Mikoto Misaka, Nana, Mordred, Grey, Gaius, Albert Wesker, Nine the Phantom, Chrom
  • He separated houses from the house of Abusive Parents after finding his own calling and concentrating more on tracking Carl Clover. He really couldn't stand being slighted by him in the past...
  • Relius has been secretly on a project for building up some sort of 'Evil Family', that once created, will wreak havoc into the Pantheon.
    • That project turned out to be the arrival of Huckebein Family. Despite that, Relius still abuses them on regular basis. No child is safe from Relius, irredeemably evil or not.
  • Is also rumored that he plans to overthrow Darth Vader from his throne, as Relius was severely disappointed that Vader did not go on his plan to kill off Luke Skywalker... Relius would kill him if he's put on Vader's shoes. He still likes the Imperial March, though.
  • He had no high opinion on his replacement, Ghetsis. No, not because of his horrific torture of N (Relius would approve). But because Ghetsis sought PERFECTION, and Relius believed that only he can attain it.
    • Likewise, fellow Mad Scientist Mayuri Kurotsuchi despises him BECAUSE he seeks perfection, which reminds him of Szayelapporo Granz. Miki Aono also despises him as he's staining the efforts to be positive and perfect at the same time with his over the top depravity. It's still a wonder why Relius suddenly didn't declare Miki to be his potential experiment subject, perhaps he just finds fighting the armada of Pretty Cure troublesome for him.
      • Is also good friends with Albert Wesker, another fellow Mad Scientist who seeks perfection and had abandoned his own son.
  • His theme, created after deification, has been described as more of a turn-on than Terumi's theme. May or not be in the process of becoming a separate deity altogether.
  • As he has competed with Terumi in the depravity department in his respective franchise, Relius is one of the vilest deities in the Pantheon, and he is definitely the vilest parent ever. Those such as Frank Castle, Kenshiro, Ryuko Matoi and William Blazkowicz are all itching to grind him into hamburger for the things he has done.
  • Treads carefully when around the house of Life and Death, as Johann Faust VIII has a kill-on-sight policy regarding Relius.
  • He once again managed to make his move to reshape the Pantheon, once again coaxing Litchi into his side and even yanked his son Carl out of Alice Margatroid's house, facing against Bang Shishigami, and not just him, also Jin Kazama and anti-parental abuse group and also Valkenhayn R. Hellsing, Jade Curtiss, Miki Aono, Johann Faust and even Kurotsuchi Mayuri. This brawl, however, turned against him when he was backstabbed by Revolver Ocelot and Albert Wesker, depowering him greatly, and even Carl and Litchi didn't even lift a finger to help him note . With his movement crumbling to pieces, Relius fell into a massive Villainous BSoD and after beaten to near death by Valkenhayn, he was put under the mercy of both Carl and Litchi, until he 'fulfills' something.
  • The fact that he shares the same Japanese voice as Archer is what disturbs the Heroic Spirit so much.
  • He and Terumi were the ones to ascend Arakune as a way to try and get Ms.Litchi under thier thumb. Relius however saw some more potential in Arakune and managed to upgrade him to Intermediate-god levels and sent Arakune to do his bidding. However, most people have had a harder time finding Arakune around the pantheon. Most of the gods went to him questioning him on the whereabouts of Arakune. He simply said however that he has not seen Arakune in a while, especially after he was betrayed by Ocelot and Wesker and that he lost contact. Some people still suspect otherwise however.
  • Jedah Dohma has some interest in him, not only for sounding a kind but his plans for creating new wold would help Jedah's vision of such. He considers keeping Relius alive until he either gets his act together or until he is beyond saving.
  • The pantheon has just found out that he and Valkenhayn R. Hellsing used to work together in their younger years. Valkenhayn has refused to give any comments at the moment.
  • To everyone's surprise, Relius managed to break out from his containment and once again roamed free in the Pantheon, after learning from his mistakes before, it's less likely that he'll repeat his failures, though he saw no point in retrieving both Litchi and Arakune again. However, some say he has 'talked' with Carl and caused a jarring change in him. With this, the good people in the Pantheon once again resumed the 'manhunt' against him while the evil people that still trusted him in their evil ways welcomed him back, like usual. He does learn to not hang around with Wesker again.

    Tohka Todo 
Tohka Todo, The Goddess who Takes Her Glasses Off When Serious (Raikiri)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/296876.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Device, the Narukami
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Student Council President, The Ace, Shock and Awe, Iaijutsu Practitioner, Meganekko, Blind Without 'Em, Cute Clumsy Girl
  • Domains: School, Swords, Lightning, Glasses
  • Allies: Ikki Kurogane, Stella Vermillion (both are also Friendly Rivals), Haruka Kotoura, Fate, Cole McGrath, Pikachu, Yuri Tsukikage/Cure Moonlight, Satellizer El Bridget, Chiffon Fairchild, Mitsuru Kirijo, Yayoi Kise/Cure Peace, Mikoto Misaka, Erza Scarlet, Xenovia Quarta, Elizabeth Maybly, Tomoyo Sakagami
  • Rivals: Jetstream Sam, Raiden, Sasuke Uchiha
  • Odd Friendship: Ika Musume, Haru Ichinose, Murakumo, Ami Mizuno, King II,
  • Enemies: Basco, anyone else who harms children, Azula
  • She ascended after hearing how two of her rivals had ascended and heard how their plenty of strong opponents there. Of course she to find a title to ascended and it wasn't easy but managed to find a way in.
  • Of course many gods are intrigued after hearing about her exploits from Ikki and Stella how she curb stomped his formidable little sister and forced him to go passed his limits in order to defeat her.
  • She does have terrible eyesight. Her opponents are often rather confused as to how she is suddenly able to fight better. It has been revealed she has a Disability Superpower: her reverse sight allows her to essentially read the minds of her opponents.
  • Of course, many gods wonder how a skilled swordswoman such as herself is utterly clumsy outside battle, especially given the fact that she has such horrible eyesight without her glasses. By now, too, most of the pantheon has probably seen her panties due to her clumsiness, much to her embarrassment.
  • She befriended Satellizer and Cure Moonlight as they too tend to take their glasses off when serious. She also likes sparring with her fellow swordswoman Satellizer.
  • She also befriended other gods who uses electricity like Fate, Mikoto and Cole. She notes that her high bioelectricity content prevent her from using electric appliances. As Cole can attest to. It's noted that she should proceed with caution when strolling through the house of technology.
    • She also befriended electric type pokemon and is one of the few Humans in the pantheon who can understand them via Reverse sight.
    • She is most likely immune to mental attacks thanks to said bioelectricity.
  • Her signature technique, the Raikiri is very powerful attack and is one of the fastest attack in the pantheon as it harnesses the speed of Iaijutsu combined enhanced with power of electromagnetism. As such gods such as Jetstream Sam would challenge her to a Single-Stroke Battle. Not to be confused with Kakashi's Raikiri.
  • She also enjoy spending time with orphan as she was raised in an orphanage after her parents died.
  • She has also formed alliances with other Student Council Presidents. She also likes how some of them are also skilled swordswomen.
  • Haruka, and Yayoi/Cure Peace look up to her as she is powerful and kind also because they sound the very similar also the three of them are rather clumsy. She also formed a friendship with Ika Musume, Murakumo and Ami Mizuno for the similar reasons. minus the big sister thing.

Lesser Gods

    Date Masamune 
Date Masamune, God of Eyepatches (One Eyed Dragon, Oushuu's Number One, Azure Dragon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/date_8.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His crescent helmet and eye patch with the background of the Date clan crest
  • Theme Songs: Ready to Party, JAP by Abingdon Boys School when he gets serious
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Samurais, Sengoku Jidai Heroes, Coolness, Gratuitous English, Eyepatches of Power, Six Sword Wielding, Electric Power, Not So Jerky, Fight Seekers, Cool Helmets
  • Domains: War, Chaos, Army
  • Followers: Shokudaikiri Mitsutada
  • Herald: Katakura Kojuro
  • Allies:
  • Friendly Rivals With: Sanada Yukimura
  • Enemies: Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Mori Motonari, Otani Yoshigutsu, Ishida Mitsunari, Orochi
  • Formerly the God of Heroes Upgraded From History, until the opening of the Personal Appearance house. He left his old house in the hands of Lancelot.
  • Constantly visits the War Pantheon seeking for a good fight and inviting people to "LET'S PARTY! YAH-HA!"
  • Has made it his mission to meet his counterpart from another world and give him a spanking for being such an ass-kisser. "No man who calls himself Date Masamune should EVER bow his head to a snake like Orochi!"
    • But then, another Orochi came knocking on his temple door and tried to repeat what that happened to Masamune's counterpart. Masamune remained defiant and put up one hell of a fight, impressing and driving Orochi away from his temple, to make his point that THIS is how Date Masamune should act.
    • However, as of late, Masamune seemed to be at peace with his counterpart. It started with a dream where they fought as usual, but then, this so-called 'demon-worshipper' revealed that the Orochi he befriended wasn't all that bad and once his destructive power was separated to destroy the land, he united with the other warlords to stop it for the sake of all of humanity. The fact that he was also somewhat brainwashed didn't help matters either.
      • It also helps that both of their right eyes, both Kojuros, supported that claim. With that, Masamune promised to take it cool. Not to mention, the six-katana Masamune finds it amusing he shares a voice with both Xiahou Dun and Dian Wei from the same world. He's also started trying to encourage his dual-pistol plus saber-wielding counterpart to scream out his Engrish catchphrases, feeling it would sound great given how extra hot-blooded he sounds with his even-hammier voice...though he is a bit jealous that his alternate version actually put some guns on, since the six-katana version just can't seem to get around to adding firearms to his arsenal.
      • That, and he's thinking about adding the gun + saber-version's theme songs to his collection, due to their notable vocals. As they both yell out in the distance with all their heart: "IMBECILES!" Of course, this may require merging their minds, as their rival — Sanada Yukimura — has done with his SW counterpart.
  • The rise of Ishida Mitsunari has rekindled his one mistake: that he once took Mitsunari lightly, and was curb-stomped brutally for his hubris. Masamune has been plotting for vengeance these days...
    • The rise of Sanada Yukimura, on the other hand, is met with a great joy. "Finally can PARTY with him again!" Though he feels a bit awkward in that he needs to have better manners around Yukimura's more civilized counterpart.
    • He's also been pretty surprised about the more civil counterparts of all the fellow Sengoku figures he knows and has fought with, though he frankly finds much more endearment with that world's Maeda Keiji of all people.
  • He says he's honored that numerous heroes across the Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger universes have taken up swords with his name in the fight against evil, but he still doesn't know how the hell Sephiroth got his hands on one, insisting he must have picked up a Muramasa by mistake. Learning that Sephiroth wasn't always that bad mollified him a little, though.
    • It's been subverted with the latter in that he feels upset due to learning that the actual name for one of the Masamune swords is actually "Grandleon", but he still finds the name fascinating regardless.
  • In another universe, a Youkai bearing his name exists. His natural reaction was, understandably: "What the hell is this...?"
  • Of late, his realm has come under assault by another badass man with an Eyepatch of Power: Nick Fury.
  • Was surprised to hear that a girl called Homura was able to mimic his signature six-sword wielding technique. He does think she should try to fight with just one of her swords on occasion, too. This does take account the single sword she uses in Crimson Homura mode, due of that specific sword having magical properties. After she ascended, they have been sparring with each other.

  • Lesser Deities (their Digimon go up to Greater rank)
  • Symbol: Their goggles and Digivices
  • Theme Song: "Accentier"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Wearing goggles for no good reason besides being Digimon protagonists, Pink Girl, Blue Boy, Heroic Mimes, Purely Aesthetic Gender, Schrödinger's Player Character, Raising Sim
  • Domains: Mons, Rearing, The Internet, Nostalgia
  • Heralds: Their Digimon partners, Kouta Hirose, Himari Oofuchi, Luche, Mameo, Shoma Tsuzuki and their respective Digimon if they have one, Floatia's population, Takumi and Ami Aiba
  • Allies: Good and neutral Digimon deities, GUAG White Hats, Kirito and Asuna, Dr. Wright, The Villager, The Farmer, Tamagotchi
  • Enemies: Fatalis, Grand United Alliance of Machines, any computer viruses, evil computers and anti-digital or anti-organic fundamentalists
  • Trying to Mediate: The Yooks and the Zooks
  • Takuto and Shiki used to be very into Digimon when they were younger, even placing second in a Digimon-battling tournament which awarded them with special Digivices, but they fell off the wagon as they grew up and their adult responsibilities took center stage. One day they found the Digivices and were sucked inside, where they met their old partners WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon. Then a Machinedramon suddenly appeared and attacked them; WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon gave their lives to defeat it. Takuto and Shiki then wound up in a city called Floatia, and learned they could revive their partners by raising them all over again from DigiEggs. They learned from Jijimon about how lots of Machinedramon were rampaging in the Digital World and that Floatia had been devastated by the attacks. Takuto and Shiki got to work in restoring Floatia and uncovering the mystery behind the Machinedramon.
    • Soon they discovered that a virus called the Brain Hack (BH) Program was responsible for corrupting Digimon into violent Machinedramon. Worse, the Digital World's Enforcer, Omegamon Zwart, was also infected, preventing it from cleaning up hazards. An antivirus was developed at Floatia while Takuto and Shiki went on various adventures, recruiting Digimon to live in the city and help with their cause. In the end they were able to defeat the Enforcer and foil the plans of Analogman, the mastermind behind the whole thing, and the Digital World became peaceful once again.
  • Takuto/Shiki were summoned by Jijimon and Taomon, who informed them that there seemed to be an epidemic of a new BH Program and asked them to find and deal with the source, as the antivirus wasn't being effective for some reason. Takuto/Shiki discovered that while this new strain had the same symptoms of increased aggressiveness, it didn't cause the infected to evolve into Machinedramon. They eventually discovered the source was a tear in reality originating at the Palace of Thorns in the Ohguino Wastelands. After going in, Takuto and Shiki confronted each other for the first time. They thought it was a trap and nearly fought each other, but were interrupted by a voice, that of Norn Mikihara. She explained that the new illness' origin was a creature not natural to the Digital World that had used its privileged position as a god of the Pantheon to find its way there: the Elder Dragon Fatalis, who in its unending hatred was infecting Digimon with the Black Blight so they'd turn against the humans. Takuto and Shiki would have none of that and entered the Pantheon to defeat Fatalis, which wasn't difficult with four Mega Digimon between the two of them. Both of them elected to stick around to ensure no other threats entered their universe. After the Main House employed measures to clean up their universe of the remains of the Black Blight, they granted Takuto and Shiki godhood as a sort of apology. Their domain is Goggles Do Nothing, a cherished fashion statement among Digimon heroes.
    • Takuto and Shiki keep a watch on Fatalis to this day in order to promptly deal with any more Black Blight outbreaks. Seeing how similar the Blight is to the BH Program and how it can turn mons against their partners makes the problem a fairly personal one to the two Tamers.
  • Takuto and Shiki may not have started off in the best foot, but once it became clear to them that they were simply each other's alternate universe, opposite-sex counterpart with few to no differences between them, they bonded very easily and turned out to have great teamwork. They even have a dynamic suspiciously similar to that of twin siblings (much to Himari's relief).
  • Their temple is all of Floatia. It's necessary because most of the facilities in there are needed for their Digimon partners to have a long lifespan and good quality of life. Takuto, Shiki and their Digimon don't really have their own house and crash either at the gym or Jijimon's place more often than not (though literally anywhere will do, but it's not ideal). As the name implies, Floatia is a floating city high up in the sky, which gives it a defensive advantage against many threats; the way to access it is through a phone booth on the ground.
    • With Floatia in the Pantheon, any Pantheonic Digimon who dies is now retrieved from the city as a DigiEgg. The stat grinding that goes into raising a Digimon annoys most deities, but Takuto and Shiki argue that it's good for the mons as each succeeding generation becomes stronger than the last. The Pantheonic Digimon do not have limited lifespans like the ones in Takuto and Shiki's world do, but with the Pantheon being a Death World, there is always the danger of them getting killed. Such an event is very rare, however.
  • Besides the Digimon who maintain Floatia, their Heralds consist of Kouta and Himari, two humans who, like Takuto and Shiki, were suddenly pulled into the Digital World; they became their closest allies. Their Digimon are a Dukemon and a Holydramon, respectively. Shoma Tsuzuki is the one who beat Takuto and Shiki in the Digimon tournament, but he had cheated and that cost him his Digimon, and his guilt led to him becoming corrupted and helping the Machinedramon plague along by spreading the BH Program. In the end he was beaten out of it by Takuto and Shiki and became a friend. His Digimon is an Omegamon Alter-B. Then there is Luche, a human-shaped digital lifeform who was an unintentional catalyst of the BH Program, and Mameo, who had gone on his own adventure years ago and went into the Digital World again to stop the crisis and help Shoma snap out of it. They were all fairly confused that upon entering the Pantheon, they could remember two versions of what happened: one with Takuto and one with Shiki. But after the whole incident with Fatalis and realizing the Pantheon houses many more threats that could put their universe in danger, it was easy for them to decide that another Tamer capable of having two partners at once was a very welcome addition indeed.
  • Once they were firmly established in the Pantheon, they were visited again by Norn, who properly introduced herself, told them of her ideals of human/Digimon co-existence and that she hoped she could count on their unique insight in the matter. From there Norn pointed them to the other Tamers and Digimon in the Pantheon, who the two met in their own time. Most of them have the same basic goals when it comes to Digimon and the Digital World, so there's not much to be said there. More than anything, the Digidestined were astonished at how much effort and care Takuto and Shiki pour into their Digimon and it's made some of them embarrassed at how hands-off they can be with their partners. As for the Digimon not associated with the Digidestined, Takuto and Shiki will sometimes ask for friendly matches for the purpose of grinding up their Digimon's stats.
  • As with most deities associated with Digimon (or anything computer-related), they regularly help out the GUAG's White Hats in clearing up some hazard that could threaten the Digital World. Among the members of that group they've become good friends with Kirito and Asuna, who were trapped in a computer-generated world themselves and became famous for their power, much like the two Tamers after ridding the Digital World of the BH Program. Likewise, and despite being coerced into their first adventures, they went back of their own free will both to enjoy themselves and to take down any other evildoers. Takuto and Shiki are understandably freaked out at the idea of their brains getting microwaved if they failed their mission, though they think it's amazing how Kirito and Asuna were skilled enough to face giant, powerful monsters all on their own.
  • When the GUAM learned about the BH Program crisis and that it was caused by a human, Analogman, who believed that humans ought to enslave Digimon, they pounced on the whole thing as an argument that proved their belief that humans were evil and destructive, and should be either eradicated or made subservient to machines. Obviously Takuto, Shiki and their friends, human and Digimon, strongly disagree and tried to explain Analogman is a special case of an insane and overly ambitious human, while Tamers such as themselves only wanted to live with Digimon. Even Shoma was driven to extremes only because he regretted what he did to his partner, and he repented. Of course the GUAM doesn't have a good opinion of Tamers to begin with, so this all fell on deaf ears.
  • One particular incident involving the GUAM had them threatening the Tamagotchi into joining their cause, pointing out the many times one of them had died at a human's hands, so they were morally obliged to join. Takuto and Shiki intervened and defended the peaceful Tamagotchi, plus accused the GUAM of hypocrisy in oppressing their own. After that the Tamagotchi admired the powerful Digimon that had been raised by the two Tamers with love and care and gave them their blessing to keep at it. Takuto and Shiki could more or less be considered the Tamagotchi's guardians.
  • Takuto and Shiki have other responsibilities besides protecting the harmony and integrity of the Digital World by having their Digimon beat up whatever megalomaniac shows up. They also have a hand in building up Floatia into a proper city by collecting enough materials for construction, be they liquid, metal, stone or wood. Since contacting with the Pantheon, it seems as if Floatia might need a ton of other upgrades to keep up with the mounting danger. The case interested Dr. Wright who, as the reigning deity of Construction and Management Games, has an interest in making Floatia as safe as possible; to this end he uses his expertise in town management to advise Takuto and Shiki in making Floatia the best city possible.
  • A boy only known as the Villager, who's friends with Dr. Wright, also stopped by Floatia one day out of curiosity. Takuto and Shiki decided to give him a tour, and Villager found that the two humans living harmoniously alongside Digimon was not dissimilar from his own lifestyle, even if the Digimon are far more intimidating than his animal friends. He was more weirded out that Takuto and Shiki don't have their own house and tended to crash at Jijimon's, and so he keeps badgering them to build one. Takuto and Shiki think that wouldn't be so bad for some privacy, but also think upgrading the rest of Floatia comes first.
  • They also drew the attention of the Farmer when he heard that Floatia has a farm that grows many odd things, including meat, for the Digimon's sustenance (Takuto and Shiki actually don't require eating so long as they are digitized). After paying a visit and seeing that Takuto and Shiki tended to it every day, he liked what he saw enough to offer to study ways to cut down the time needed for growing produce. Takuto and Shiki are grateful to him for this.
  • One time they stopped a war between meat- and veggie-lovers who were fighting over whose preferred food was the superior one. They thought it was pretty dumb, especially considering both meat and veggies grow from the ground in the Digital World, so meat doesn't raise ethical concerns. Even with this precedent they didn't expect the Yooks and the Zooks fighting over which side of the bread should be buttered. Refusing to have a war break out over something so inane (though they recognize it's Serious Business to the factions), Takuto and Shiki are trying to mediate between the two peoples, using the example of the meat- and veggie-lovers in their world who eventually became at peace with each other. The Yooks and Zooks don't seem to think the two situations are comparable, for some reason.

  • Demigoddess (Intermediate Goddess as a Dark Signer)
  • Symbol: Her glasses next to her camera; alternatively, a hummingbird mark
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Chaotic Evil as a Dark Signer)
  • Portfolio: reporters who are a bit clumsy, Meganekko, Romantic daydreams, looking very pretty behind her glasses, those killed then resurrected badly but then brought back to normal, attempts at reading the future

  • Follower: Saori Bajeena
  • Allies: Jack Atlas, Jade, Ash Ketchum, Cosmos, Gentaro Kisaragi, Yusei Fudo, Shark, Aki Izayoi, Anna Kozuki, Rei Shingetsu/Vector, Acena, Lois Lane
  • While doing a report, she found word on a Pantheon of different gods and decided to check it out. When she got there, she was thrown a welcome party and was given a rank as a demigoddess. She's very thankful for the title, and has decided to use her new powers to spread good news to other people. Many gods were amazed to find out that her glasses actually stopped the end of the world as it represented the Carly that Jack Atlas loved, not the seductress that wanted to make him her "Dark King".
  • Waits for the day that Jack Atlas arrives in the Pantheon, so the two can be together forever. And then when she found out he was in the House of Travel, she personally went to him, burst into tears and hugged him. There were many who also cried at the reunion.
    • Jack's best friend Yusei Fudo and fellow Team 5Ds member Aki Izayoi have also ascended, and she visits them from time to time.
  • Has gotten unnerved when she found out about the atrocities that she committed when she was a Dark Signer and freaked out when she learned what happened if she successfully brought Jack back as a Dark Signer. She's been going to the House of Friendship for condolence to ensure that it was only a dream and nothing more.
  • Spends a lot of time in the House of Prophecy in an attempt to learn how to predict the future with her Fortune Fairy deck, and is now practicing with her Fortune Lady deck just in case.
  • Freddie Benson nearly mistook her for a similar Carly that he knows. The two got along very well with Freddie helping her make her own news show whenever he had free time.
  • Has two surnames depending on the region, as the Japanese speaking Gods refer her under the Nagisa surname and the English speaking do the same under the Carmine one.
  • Is very glad when Aki ascended to the House of Nature as she can share with her about moving on over a dark past with someone from the same universe, as well as over being the only female deities from their franchise to ascend.

  • Enemies: Ash Ketchum, Hunter J, Giovanni, The Mob, Ghetsis, Ragyo Kiryuin, Death the Kid
  • Rivals: Professor Kukui, Red
  • Fears: The Ultra Beasts
  • Waltzed in one day, boasting about how strong of a Pokémon trainer he is. Nobody really took him seriously, so he just sort of hangs around the Pantheon now. He's often seen training his Pokémon or crouching somewhere.
  • Guzma is or was the leader of Team Skull, and despite his hammy nature, he's a surprisingly powerful Pokémon trainer, probably one of the strongest in Alola, possibly coming from his training to becoming a Captain. He often spends his time slacking, training his Pokémon, or battling trainers.
  • Overjoyed to see to of his favorite Pokémon, Pinsir, Bisharp, and Scizor have ascended as well. Though he was disappointed to see that Golisopod hasn't been ascended, he nonetheless took the two under his wing. He can often be seen training or playing with them.
    • He's pretty happy to see the wide variety of Bug-types in the House of Insects as well. He often visits to play with the Pokémon or battle them.
    • Thinks Mothra Leo is the coolest thing ever, being a Bug-Type lover and all. Half the time he visits the House of Insects in just to see Mothra in person. There's actually a rumor going around that he's attempting to capture Mothra. Whenever someone brings it up to hi,m he sort of brushes them off unconvincingly.
  • Can sympathize with N for having abusive parents and being able to stand up to them. They battle each other and hang out from time to time. On the flip side, Guzma absolutely hates Ghetsis for his treatment of his son.
  • He can often be seen hanging out with Jessie, James, and Meowth. He likes how they became members of Team Rocket to better themselves, much like how Guzma founded Team Skull to better himself and terrible trainers. But, despite having stolen Pokémon himself, he refuses to help them steal Pokémon, saying how he's past that now.
  • Enjoys hanging out with Junkrat for his explosive personality and their similar appearances. Guzma hangs out with Junkrat mostly to see what he can blow up. They've blown up microwaves, cars, you name it, mostly because it's cool.
  • Pretty annoyed at Red for managing to kick his ass every time they battle. Nonetheless, he still respects him for managing to become such a powerful trainer. he still battles him from time to time to see if he can beat him.
  • Thinks Ash Ketchum is a brat. Ash dislikes Guzma for his past in Pokémon stealing, though he does have a little respect for him stopping the whole operation. Nonetheless, they still battle each other when ever they get the chance, and so far they've been equally matched.
  • Giovanni doesn't like him, as they're pretty much opposites. Guzma is laid back and arrogant while Giovanni is more serious and practical. It doesn't help that they're pretty much evenly matched. They often battle each other whenever they cross paths.
  • Tends to stay away from The Mob. He finds it really weird and just walks the other direction whenever he sees it. It doesn't help that, somehow, The Mob managed to beat him several times before.
  • Hates Ragyo Kiryuin for being such a terrible mother, though Kiryuin doesn't really care much about what he thinks. He tends to avoid her out of disgust and fear.
    • On the other hand, he can often be seen hanging out with Ryuko Matoi, since they're both delinquents, though he does find Mako Mankanshoku a bit annoying.
  • Death the Kid avoids him whenever he catches sight of him. Guzma is shabby, unruly, and wears those crooked shades from time to time. Death the Kid, being the perfectionist that he is, tried to get him to dress nice, but Guzma was impossible to civilize. Sometimes he wears the crooked sunglasses to spite him.
  • Due to being Always Second Best, he sympathizes with Matt Hardy for being the elder brother who gets overshadowed by his younger brother. He finds BROKEN Matt to be a fun guy to be around, what with his weird ideas of "Deleting people", liking green beans, owning a dilapidated boat and an alcohol drinking drone, calling his rivals "Brother Nero", etc. BROKEN Matt has now given him the name "Guzma of Team Skull" as a result.
    • And better yet, after Guzma met with Jeff "Brother Nero" Hardy, he thinks it'll be fun if he "fades away and classifies himself as OBSOLETE!" Many gods don't know how to react to this friendship.

  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The Superhero Division
  • Ascended when deities commended his devotion to his job as well as keeping up in a world that had powerful abilities. That and he looks fine in specs.
  • His story ended in a Heroic Sacrifice, using his body as fuel for his mortal grandchildren to protect the earth from a deadly solar flare. Afterwards, he made a plea to ascend the two. The gods were not impressed, noting how poorly the new series has been received, not to mention the fact that it lasted only one season. This has been especially unfortunate for the ascended members, as none of them are allowed in their mortal bodies in that world anymore.
  • Many say he has an strikingly similar resemblance to Gordon Freeman, God of Crowbars. However, they initially didn't see eye to eye in the early run, when Noah's actions were a bit too similar to The G-Man for his liking. Noah did undergo some Character Development later in life, acting in a more benevolent way. That was enough for the two to get comfortable with each other.
  • Maintains a stable relationship with the other gods in his universe, He's especially protective of his daughter Claire, even though there has been no signs of Sylar appearing in the Pantheon just yet. At most, he got frightened when he saw young Spock.
  • There was a time when his wife Angela also had a spot in the Pantheon as the God of Evil Mothers. It wasn't a well-regarded position, but he accepted the rank. Eventually, she softened up her role... which led to her downfall. Feeling that she didn't fit the role anymore, Sofia Lamb staged a coup d'état, successfully kicking her out. Not even a long plea to the Court of the Gods could convince them to reverse the decision. He despises her to this day.
  • He has long since atoned for actively hunting down evolved humans. Still, the GUAG Superhero division remains skeptical of working together with the man, even when he reconciled with his daughter.
    • Not everyone has forgiven him so easily. Amadeus Cho has been one of his harshest critics, even as a mortal when he hacked into his computers. When Cho ascended, Noah tried to patch things up between the two. Cho promised to stop hacking, but he hasn't forgiven him and may never do so.
  • He did do his best to help out the Marvel heroes when they were in hiding due to Norman Osborn and his reign as head of S.H.I.E.L.D Now that Norman managed to achieve godhood, he's more tn happy to toss a pumpkin bomb in his face.
  • At least they are willing to work with him. Magneto refuses to forgive him, going out as to swear he would crush Noah's neck with his own glasses if the two ever meet again. Noah has been advised to avoid the House of Nature because of this.
  • Although he doesn't agree with all of Noah's points, Billy does see him as an ally.
  • He is much more friendly towards Tohka Todo, especially in later years. Nowadays, Tohka wouldn't even hesitate for a second to help him out.

    Spider Jerusalem 
Spider Jerusalem, God of Eccentric Eyewear
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/transmetropolitan_2.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His eyeglasses
  • Alignment: Between Chaotic Good and Chaotic Neutral (though he’s more the former)
  • Portfolio: Anti-Hero, Intrepid Reporter, Undiscriminating Addict, Knight in Sour Armor, Based on Hunter S. Thompson
  • Domains: Journalism, Attitude
  • Allies (bordering on Vitriolic Best Buds with most of them): Norman Jayden, Frank West, Jade, Lois Lane, J. Jonah Jameson
  • Enemies: Louis Bloom, Frank Underwood, Ethan Roark Sr. & Jr., C.R.A.S.H., Donald Love, Diana Christensen, Brian Irons
  • On generally good terms with: John Oliver, Phantom Thieves of Heart
  • Not So Different from: Sans
  • In a future where corruption and excess are the norm, renegade journalist Spider Jerusalem, known for his talent and fiery temper, is forced back into his job in order to complete his publishing deal. He and his so-called “filthy assistants” go on harrowing missions to uncover the truth behind several incidents overrunning The City, with corrupt president Gary Callahan (aka The Smiler) being one of Spider Jerusalem’s biggest challenges. Even with fame presenting a challenge to him, alongside Callahan doing whatever he can to destroy Spider’s reputation and plunging The City into chaos, on top of a life-threatening neurological illness, Spider will stop at nothing to expose how much of a monster The Smiler is and take him down, an endeavor that ultimately succeeds.
  • Even after finally disposing of The Smiler and getting a much-needed retirement, work still finds a way to get to Spider Jerusalem after receiving a mysterious message that was addressed from “The Pantheon”. After a heated back-and-forth exchange with the sender, Spider packed his bags and headed for “The Pantheon”, still not entirely convinced that the trip would be worth it. Several hours later, Spider arrived at a sprawling city stated to be part of the Pantheon. Not long after he arrived, he saw a suspicious figure turn towards a seedy part of the city, prompting Spider to follow him and what the journalist discovered was a seedy underground operation perpetrated by some corporate executives dedicated to funneling money out of small business and into larger corporations. Spider Jerusalem published the story in the Pantheon newspapers, resulting in the executives in question being ousted. This was only a taste of what to expect in the Pantheon for Spider Jerusalem and he’s had his work cut out for him since getting accustomed to the place.
  • Spider Jerusalem considers life in the Pantheon to be both different and similar to what it was like back when he was making stories for The City. The Pantheon ostensibly advertises itself as a place where problems are solved quickly and that there are plenty of benefits to being part of the Pantheon. While it is half-true, Spider was able to pick up on the fact that there are plenty of parts in the Pantheon that are corrupt and parts of it are just as problematic as, if not worse than, what had happened in The City. While there is a greater number of ways for information to be obtained in the Pantheon (and by extension, the list of misdeeds of prominent figures being far more widespread), there was also a risk for that information to be suppressed in varying ways, giving Spider more of a motivation to step in and have the truth come out. Even if he doesn’t entirely enjoy living in the Pantheon, he’s more than willing to expose corruption that hasn’t been revealed yet and play a role in taking down despicable figures so that life in the Pantheon doesn’t become a total nightmare for others.
  • One thing that didn’t take long for Spider to find was other journalists and even if they have different employers, they’re all united in their goal of finding a good story for the Pantheon to take in. Spider wanted to know who these particular journalists were and was directed to a building where all the main journalists converged to exchange news stories with their primary editor, J. Jonah Jameson. Frank West, Lois Lane, and Jade all entered that room, with J.J.J. introducing them to Spider Jerusalem. Spider’s hardened attitude would lead to him exchanging barbs with the aforementioned four (especially towards J.J.J.), though his skill and willingness to make the world a better place for others in spite of his jaded demeanor did make him an effective ally for the journalists.
    • In stark contrast, Louis Bloom is someone who Spider is thoroughly disgusted at not only as a journalist, but as a human being. Louis is very cold-hearted and willing to perform morally reprehensible actions just to get a good story and Spider finds it unbelievable that someone like Louis is allowed to keep being a journalist. People such as Diana Christensen who are willing to run stories as found by Louis happened to be part of Spider’s hatred of Louis and one of his main goals in the Pantheon is to ensure that Louis and anyone who is enabling his stories will never be welcome in the field of journalism ever again. Of course, the likes of Louis and Diana aren’t going to go down easily and they have done smear campaigns to discredit Spider in retaliation.
  • One other deity who is known for making news stories and delivering them with a sharp attitude was John Oliver, who has his own news program dedicated to such. That said, he is markedly less over-the-top in some of his antics compared to Spider Jerusalem, but it hasn’t stopped John from having some audacious methods to make fun of any prominent target of his. John tends to cover stories that largely haven’t gotten much attention in the general populace, not unlike how Spider Jerusalem actively seeks out lesser-known going-ons whenever he’s tasked with finding a story and isn’t caught up in something big-enough that would put everyone at risk. John described Spider as a reckless and over-the-top man who is willing to risk everything to find stories that fell under the cracks and Spider is fine with John Oliver for the most part (even if he’s willing to make some barbs at his expense at not being wild enough to bring targets of deserved mockery down).
  • Corrupt politicians have been a source of constant frustration for Spider as a result of his experiences with The Smiler (who Spider sought to take down) and The Beast (the previous president who was very cynical and not irredeemably monstrous as Spider learned when he interviewed him). That the Pantheon had plenty of them only added to Spider’s anger and even with the more versatile and open information system in the Pantheon, Spider suspected that these politicians will do what they can to get away with more power. Spider has already written articles revealing additional misdeeds carried out by politicians such as Donald Love and Ethan Roark Sr., with Spider harboring strong contempt towards the latter for making Basin City a miserable cesspool that’s even worse than what Spider was used to. Ethan Roark Sr. having a sadistic criminal son who the senator is using as a means to continue his legacy only added to Spider’s scorn of him.
    • If there is one politician in the Pantheon that will pose a challenge to Spider that is equal to that of The Smiler, it would be Frank Underwood. As someone with no moral scruples when it comes to seeking power and keeping it, Frank heard of Spider’s journalism and was greatly aware of how much damage it would cause to him if Spider were to publish a story about Frank’s atrocities. Frank was utilized an information suppression campaign in order to silence Spider and other journalists who are trying to get information on what Frank’s actions, but it became clear that Spider is not going to go down without a fight and will use what’s available to not only bring increased awareness to Frank’s actions, but to bring down the politician’s career.
  • Spider had to contend with corrupt police forces in The City as part of a story or two and similar incidents have occured in the Pantheon between Spider and specific corrupt officers. While law enforcement in the Pantheon has generally done a better job at making sure police officers are doing their job and not abusing their power, Spider is still annoyed that there are still some corrupt people that manage to get a job with official Pantheon law enforcers. Cops such as Brian Irons, Frank Tenpenny, and Eddie Pulaski have proven to be a recurring source of irritation for Spider given their ties to some corrupt figures (mainly Ethan Roark Sr.) that Spider has been trying to take down. Even if the depravity of those cops are known in the Pantheon, Spider is willing to further humiliate them just to make a point.
  • The Phantom Thieves of Heart are a group of people that bewildered Spider for a number of reasons. On the surface, they look like normal high school students, but they take on the identity of thieves and expose corruption while attempting to change the person responsible for performing said corruptive actions. Spider ended up being a witness to one of the group’s missions and talked to their leader Ren Amamiya about the effectiveness of their missions in trying to change the world for the better. Ren initially thought that Spider was a bad person given the latter’s often abrasive attitude, but quickly learned that the journalist had a similar goal in taking down corruption where it happens. Spider wasn’t going to stop Ren and the other Phantom Thieves from doing their work (if anything, he’s kind of glad that there’s a group of people who are aware of how bad society is and has the ability to change it), even if he has a lot of questions about why changing someone’s character in the process is necessary.
  • When it comes to drugs, it largely doesn’t matter what ends up in Spider’s hands so long as he can take it whenever he feels like it. While working on a story, he managed to find a Triptocaine Tube inside a drawer, and by that point, Norman Jayden entered the room, wondering why someone would be interested in his Triptocaine Tube. Spider then learned that Norman needs to use that drug in order for him to be stable when using ARI (Added Reality Interface) glasses for his investigative work. While Spider has taken a liking towards Triptocaine as a drug to use in his downtime, Norman has been working on finding someone to make a set ARI glasses for Spider to use given how dedicated the latter is in investigating the truth when tasked with such.
  • For how angry and cynical Spider can be about the world around him, he’s willing to do whatever is possible to change the world and make it better for most others. Of all the deities that’s compared to Spider in terms of that mindset, the journalist didn’t really expect to be compared to Sans, who is generally regarded to be very lazy, but very determined when given the motivation to act. Sans also happens to be very cynical about the world around him to the point of believing that his actions don’t matter, though he doesn’t openly show his anger about it compared to Spider. Even if Spider had to deal with crimes that are not unlike what would happen in the real world (even if the world around him was very futuristic) and Sans had dealt with much more supernatural circumstances, Spider is at least understanding of the fact that someone shares a similar sentiment about the world they live in.

Quasideities

  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: His glasses
  • Theme Song: His show's theme song

  • Feared by: Hank Pym/Ant-Man
  • Admires: Superman, Spider-Man, Batman
  • Special Relationship: D.W. Read (his sister)
  • An ordinary aardvark with a hunger for reading books, it seemed unlikely that an ordinary third grader like Arthur would make the Pantheon. But many felt obliged to watch his adventures with his friends that showed thoughtful life lessons along the way. His efforts were eventually rewarded with his ascension.
    • His younger sister was quick to meet up with him afterwards, mostly to taunt him how much longer it took for him to ascend than her. With that said, she is wary with provoking him too much. There has been a growing resentment of her among those in the Pantheon, most notably for the notorious Big Hit incident. D.W. may have the vast majority in her world side with her, but she has to deal with the opposite reaction in the Pantheon, especially from Switzerland, who has such a deep hatred for all abusive siblings (and parents) to the point he is willing to and has tried multiple times to kill D.W., although the other gods always stopped him from doing so. Apparently Switzerland has no regard for the fact that as angry as she can make him, Arthur himself does not actually hate D.W. and wouldn't want to see her dead.
    • His followers have immortalized that scene in a meme to express the same anger he feels at times. Arthur doesn't condone violence... though he can't help but be proud of his increasing popularity.
  • Has spearheaded a smear campaign against Barney the Dinosaur, mostly because of his complete and utter hatred of Mary Moo Cow. Efforts to oust the purple dinosaur has so far been unsuccessful, thanks in part to his sister's counterarguments as well as alliances with the younger deities. It doesn't help that Arthur's efforts only further prove Barney deserves his position.
  • Arthur thought things may have been different if D.W. was a big sister instead. He only had to venture into the House of Technology to show how horrible that could be. It's there that he shares stories with Dexter, Boy Genius, over how their sisters ruin their fun.
  • The Kids Next Door keeps tabs with the aardvark from time to time. Arthur may not be fit for any missions, but he's decent enough at school to help out with homework in exchange for revealing activities of tyrannous adults.
  • If not for being a different species, one could argue that Arthur is the long lost brother of Charlie Brown. It turns out they share similar interests as well, such as reading books. Of course, Arthur isn't nearly as cursed, and the aardvark hopes to help Charlie Brown change his life around.
  • He may not know anyone who had their appendix removed, but he is assured that Madeline would watch over anyone who goes through it. In a way, the French girl reminds Arthur of a younger Sue Ellen.
  • Has tried to reassure Hank Pym he has nothing to worry about. He may be an aardvark, but that doesn't mean he eats ants. It hasn't convinced Hank's colonies to completely trust him just yet.
  • When he found out the existence of superheroes in the Pantheon, Arthur rushed over to the House of Heroes. While he didn't see his idol Bionic Bunny, he did find the next best thing. Superman has overseen his actions throughout his existence. It is likely that the Man of Steel would let Arthur meet his idol someday. He's also a big fan of Batman since he's very similar to Dark Bunny, another superhero from Arthur's world who he's a big fan of.
  • There may not be an equivalent in his world, but Arthur immediately saw the appeal of Peter Parker. The fact that an everyman like Peter Parker could become a superhero was amazing to see. Sure, not everyone thinks he's a hero, but Arthur remains convinced.
  • Sometimes goes to Tintin's temple to collect stories of his adventures around the world. He had a feeling that his friend Fern would love reading some of his adventures. He has done the same with Harry Potter, of whom Arthur also has a parody version in his world. The self-proclaimed reporter even has an Expy called Zut Zut.
  • Was surprised that a comic his friend Buster wrote looked exactly like Trey and Matt's creations. Arthur...would rather not meet with those kids.
  • Watching Pippi Longstocking was the most jarring thing to him. She may well be the polar opposite of his friend Muffy, red hair and pigtails aside, and yet they sound so similar. It's hard to say which person he prefers.
