Family

The House of Family and Relatives is literally a massive house that can accommodate the entire "family". Each member gets their own room, but due to a misunderstanding with the House of Craft, there is only one bathroom in the entire house which leads to monumental clashes that have left entire universes shattered. As a result, this family ranks among one of the most dysfunctional one would ever meet, and the other deities wonder what keeps them all together under the same roof. There have been so many claims of domestic abuse and other disturbances that the House of Defense has officially stopped taking calls related to this House. The few members of the 501st that are Darth Vader's personal guard try and keep everything intact, but it never works, which makes that job the most disliked in the entire Legion.

  • Opposes: Homura Akemi
  • Pities: Nox, Old Joseph Simmons
  • Friendly Rivalry: Captain Falcon
  • Baffled by: Crazy Dave
  • Lucina was the daughter of Chrom, born in to King Chrom of Ylisse and his wife in a world that was soon ravaged by the self-proclaimed Fell Dragon Grima. Chrom was killed by a close comrade and soon his wife followed suit dying in the war. Her parents' deaths prompted Lucina to eventually travel back in time to kill Grima before the Fell Dragon could rise to power, saving both her family and the world. Followed by Grima from the future, Lucina nearly fell along with her friends and father, but eventually the heroes of Ylisse won and Grima was vanquished forever.
  • When Lucina's entire identity was proven to be a massive change and a big twist in her father's and Robin's adventure it gave the Court of Gods the idea to eventually ascend her under Kid from the Future. Once done, she had a heartwarming reunion with him, the two glad to see each other again after so long.
  • Upon learning of Lucina's presence in the Pantheon, Robin reunited with Lucina, much to both of their joy. No one is completely sure which gender Robin is nor what the relationship between Robin and Lucina is. Friends? Lovers? Parent and time-displaced child? Different gods have asked Lucina, but there have been differing reports of her answers, some even rumor that there are multiple Lucinas each accounting for a different relationship to Robin but having the same personality.
  • Still remains in a small rivalry with Captain Falcon. He's apologized for attacking them and her father that time, so their rivalry is now more lighthearted, as he was impressed when they showed their "moves" in battle and she and Robin managed to give him a really hard time. Falcon himself was also as happy as she was to see Chrom entering the Smash Bros competition, with father and daughter as well as Robin ready to have a rematch with the Captain with a little more formality this time around.
  • She was very excited to learn that Hero King Marth himself is in the Pantheon. Since everything was cleared up, Marth's has not been quite sure how to take this given her impersonation of him, regardless, he is glad that his descendant ended up as good a person as she is, though. From time to time they'll spar to test how good each other is at fighting and for Marth to stealthily teach her any techniques he thinks she might lack.
  • Her belief that hope will never die has made her a friend of Madoka Kaname, as the Magical Girl is representative of Hope and is a strong fighter for her own dreams of a world filled with hope and stopping all suffering forever. Due to her alliance with Madoka, she's come to pity and oppose Homura Akemi, as the latter's goals of overriding Madoka's own wish for an admittedly selfish love did not sit well with Lucina.
  • Learned that she's Not So Different from Link, who also wore masks to impersonate people in one timeline. Outside of it, the two became close friends after learning of each other's adventures in time travel and their status as swordfighters who fought against evil entities who spread misery and chaos. Likewise, their encounters in the Smash Bros tournament also contributed to them becoming friends. Due to her similar experiences to Link, including disguising herself as Sheik to protect herself from Ganondorf, Zelda became allies with Lucina.
  • Was unbelievably horrified to learn that Grima is alive in the Pantheon, but is aware that he is thankfully not as capable as he once was. She knows that she, Chrom, Robin, and their allies can stop him again. Moreso thanks to having allied with the likes of Kirby, Bayonetta, Sonic and others who've fought deities as powerful or more than Grima and defeated them which has made her more confident to take a more direct approach against Grima.
  • Hates evil dragons of all kinds, especially those who desire to destroy it all or destroy nations to plunder them. Among these stood out Fatalis, as the misanthropic dragon wants all other lifeforms exterminated and as such has an evil will to match Grima's. As Smaug and Deathwing have devastated entire Kingdoms and enjoy every second of their work, they also became enemies with Lucina. Finally there's King Ghidorah as the sadistic space dragon has destroyed countless planets for the sake of entertaining himself. This last enmity also gained her an ally in Mothra Leo, who also time-travelled to ensure that the King Ghidorah of his time didn't come into existence, though Leo faile in this regard, he still got to incapacitate Ghidorah and eventually gain strength by staying in the past until he could match Ghidorah's own and destroy him for good.
  • For her actions in changing the Bad Future of her world through time travel, she has earned the ire of the The Dahaka, which has taken upon itself to hunt her down. In spite of its power, Lucina refuses to lose against it, and her allies will help out whenever it tries to single her out, with Lucina at the front standing her ground and fighting back with no fear of the time entity. Clockwork, who manages time, saw no problem in her actions and has let her be, with a simple warning not to go overboard with it for the sake of preventing fractures in time.
  • Due to her past, she's not one to understand levity, and Cannot Tell a Joke. Ocasionally she finds herself frustrated over others not taking her seriously or making fun of her tendencies to unintentionally be silly, an ally of hers, Meta Knight ended bonding with her over this as he also struggled with being taken seriously at times due to his cute appearance (much to his own chagrin).
  • Has befriended Artoria Pendragon over how they both pretended to be men at one point in their lives, watched their respective kingdoms fall into destruction and despair (albeit for different reasons), and how they traveled through time to prevent those futures from happening (though Lucina is glad that Arturia didn't follow through with her plan). They often spend time either sparring together or talking about their worlds or their respective friends (who may be more) Robin and Shirou.
    • Another ally made over the issue of disguising as a woman was Mulan as the warrior woman took the place of her father when war broke out in China to protect him from dying in the battlefield due to his old age making him unfit for battle. Lucina was glad to hear that Mulan successfully saved her father and became a hero to all of China as a whole after defeating Shan Yu, even saving the Emperor from death.
  • She befriended Barry/The Flash over both travelling through time to save their parents. Though in Barry's case he ultimately had to let fate run its course, he was moved to hear that Lucina succeeded in saving her father in a way. For this alliance she became enemies with Reverse Flash who is a deprived speedster also capable of changing time and that has haunted Barry for a long time.
    • Just like with Barry, she befriended Silver the Hedgehog and Future Trunks over their similar circumstances in regards to traveling through time to save their loved ones. She felt bad for Trunks once she knew that thanks to Zamasu he lost everything he had worked for and had to move to a different timeline to live in after Zamasu forced Zeno to destroy the entirety of his original timeline.
    • Since he had been unintentionally removed from his time period and had to fight a great evil like her, Lucina befriended Samurai Jack, with an added bonus being her swordfighting skill. Just like Lucina and her allies did with Grima, Jack was eventually able to vanquish his enemy, Aku. Lucina was glad to hear about it. Initially she felt bad hearing that Jack lost Ashi, but recently it seems she managed to persist and eventually married Jack with nothing separating them again.
    • Given that both Doc Brown and Marty McFly travelled to the past and future to make things that went wrong right, they befriended Lucina, with Brown curious about how her actions changed the future for the better. For being allies with them, she became enemies with Biff Tannen, as the cruel bully hijacked their time machine for the purpose of creating a future where he rules with an iron fist, ruining Marty's life in the process and trying to kill both him and Brown when they tried to reverse his changes.
    • As he and the Taros take care of fixing time anomalies, Ryotaro Nogami/Kamen Rider Den-O initially had an odd approach to Lucina given her time-travel shenanigans, however given that she intended to do good with them, he forgave her for it and befriended her, even congratulating her for trying to fix a Bad Future and eventually succeeding at it.
    • For kickstarting a Bad Future and trying to preserve it, Dark Danny earned Lucina's ire, especially with his sadism and his cruelty towards all other living beings. Dark Danny was cruel enough to mock her inability to ultimately protect her parents in her own timeline and how she nearly screwed up her own attempts to fix things. Danny Phantom himself has allied with Lucina over this shared enemy.
    • Originally she was curious to hear of Crazy Dave's time travel adventure when she believed that he had gone back in time to stop the zombie invasion of various timelines by Dr. Zomboss alongside the Player and the Bloom and Doom Plants, however she was caught off-guard by the revelation that Dave's encounters with Zomboss were purely a coincidence and that he had originally gone back in time to eat a taco again. Needless to say, her view of him went from 100 to 0 really quickly, and was pretty baffled as to why anyone would use time travel and potentially endanger the space-time continuum for the sake of a taco.

    Mary Poppins 
Mary Poppins, Goddess of Magical Nannies
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/701_4.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her outline holding aloft her flying umbrella
  • Leitmotif: "Feed the Birds"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Magical Nanny, Bag of Holding, The Comically Serious, Crazy-Prepared, Dish Dash, Full-Name Basis, Reverse Psychology (via song), Inexplicably Awesome, Magical Guardian, Parasol of Prettiness, Proper Lady, Refuge in Audacity, Speaks Fluent Animal, Sugar-and-Ice Personality, Younger Than They Look
  • Domain: Children, Magic, Kindness, Friendship, Music
  • Followers: Jo Frost, Izabel, Shary Bobbins (tragically, she flew into a jet plane turbine and died)
  • Herald: Bert the Chimney Sweep
  • High Priestess: Nanny McPhee
  • Superior: Walt Disney (even if her creator hated the man)
  • Allies: Fluttershy, just about every (good) parent in the Pantheon, Miss Frizzle, Willy Wonka, Felix The Cat, Maria Von Trapp (who look very similar), Yondu Udonta, Major William Cage
  • Enemies: Vicky, Lord Voldemort (as of 2012), The Professor, Neopolitan, any abusive parents
  • The official nanny for the House of Family, and her talents and no-nonsense attitude have helped both good and evil family members.
  • Has used her mastery of reverse psychology, often via song, to outwit the greatest villains in the Pantheon.
  • No child, no matter how rambunctious, villainous or crazy they are, has ever got the best of Mary Poppins. This includes the likes of Hansel and Gretel, childhood-era Johan Liebert and Lucy, Yuno Gasai and Alice
  • Several people have attempted to discover the secrets of her magic carpet bag. Naruto crawled his way into the bag, followed by Hinata Hyuga to retrieve him. It took three days for Mary Poppins to find them and remove them from the bag. The SCP Foundation requested to examine the bag, but Mary Poppins refused to co-operate.
  • There has been some speculation that she is actually a Time Lord considering her bag's depth and some her powers and influence. The Doctor has made no comment on the rumours.
  • Ran into Felix the Cat and she was intrigued with the feline's Magic Bag of Tricks, a device that can rival her own portable bag. Felix agreed to see if he can improve on her bag. She also made enemies with Felix's longtime foe, The Professor, after he made an attempt to steal her own magic bag.
  • Mary Poppins made enemies of Lord Voldemort after she used clone magic and intercepted his invasion of the 2012 Summer Olympics. Voldemort has declared vengeance on her. Mary Poppins responded with "I wish you all the best of luck."
  • Along with Carl Fredricksen's leitmotif, no God in the House of Music is allowed to play "Feed the Birds" due to the last performance causing every god to not only cry a river that nearly caused the Pantheon to be flooded, but also because they began to give so much food to the Aviary-based Gods that many of them gained a few pounds.
  • The Warner Brothers deities don't want to be near her after a similar nanny annoyed them.
  • Is quite ashamed that her author, P.L. Travers, hated the film, and all gods in the pantheon that are either Disney or animatednote . In fact, she's even bonded with Willy Wonka over having their most famous adaptations being hated by their original authors.
    • Although it was later discovered that while it wasn't up to standards with the books, P. L. Travers stated that it was a good movie in its own right.
  • She usually just rolls her eyes whenever she heard The Nostalgia Critic parodies her song when it comes to shitty movies: "Iiiiit's Supercrapafuckarifficexpialibullshit!..."
  • Was amused at Yondu saying "I'm Mary Poppins, y'all!", and decided to meet him. However, she gave him a false name because Yondu's friend\adoptive son Star-Lord paid her in order to keep the joke alive.
  • Disliked the fact that her name has been jokingly used to describe Neopolitan, a sociopath who just happens to use a weaponized umbrella.
  • Has made a grand return, whose new avatar brought Mary Poppins to the attention of William Cage. Bert, her herald is working on ascending his assistant Jack, the Lamplighter.

  • Enemies: Scar (His brother), Lady Tremaine, Heihachi Mishima, the Hyenas, Prince Hans, Ghetsis Harmonia, Pete, Maleficent, Xehanort's Incarnations, Lysandre, Tywin Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Manfred von Karma
  • Questionable Relationship: The Chosen One
  • Pities: Prince Hamlet
  • The son of Ahadi and Uru, and grandson of Mohatu, Mufasa ruled over the Pride Lands of East Africa, governing over the other animals residing there. His reign was a prosperous one, and he was loved by both his family and subjects... well, almost everyone. While trying to rescue his son Simba from a wildebeest stampede, Mufasa was murdered by his younger brother Scar, though all evidence pointed to it being "an accident". It was only when Simba returned years later and made the usurper confess to his crimes that the truth became clear. And with that, Mufasa's spirit truly found peace and drifted away to the Pantheon, where he created the Heroic Protectors of Family to keep watch over those deities who have had troubled family pasts.
  • His time as a Holy Protector of Family lead to Mufasa, and his fellow peers, to become enemies with the opposing Child Abuser Supporters, with him pointing out to Heiachi Mishima that no, male lions don't throw their cubs off of cliffs. Also didn't help that their close ally Ghetsis Harmonia was discovered to be a wannabe usurper, and had emotionally and psychologically abused his son N for his own use. Mufasa befriended the young Pokémon Trainer and has made it his goal to let none of the Abusers takes a step near him, but that's proven to be difficult.
    • Due to the circumstances surrounding his death, he also hates both Manfred von Karma and Hans, since the former did the same thing to Gregory as Scar did to him and the latter trying to murder the queen to take over her kingdom.
  • As a counterpart to King Hamlet, one would think Mufasa's relationship with the Prince of Denmark would be a friendly one... it was anything but. The old king was disappointed by what graced his presence; a young man who, in feigned madness, caused more death and misery to his loved ones than what was needed, all for the sake of confirming his uncle's treachery. Mufasa though came to pity Hamlet, as he was just as lost as Simba was, and lacked the companionship his son had. But because of what the princes' "madness" brought, Mufasa has chosen to aid the young Ophelia and befriend the duo Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, who remind the old king and his son of Timon and Pumbaa.
    • Speaking of which, while he doesn't approve of their belief in Hakuna Matata, Mufasa was happy to meet Timon and Pumbaa at long last, thanking them for not only helping Simba reclaim his throne but for also raising him during his exile. Pumbaa was more than happy to meet Simba's father and while Timon tried to brush off the compliments, he admits raising Simba brought out his better nature and afterwards, the three became good friends.
  • As it turns out, Mufasa has two Heralds serving him. The first is Zazu, a blue-feathered hornbill who served as his Majordomo in the past and the second being Sarabi, his queen and leader of the Pride Land's lionesses. Both were ecstatic to reunite with Mufasa, Sarabi especially. In fact, the first thing the pair did was nuzzle and spend the night in each other's company, catching up on lost time. Nowadays, Sarabi spends a good deal of time in the Pantheon, while Zazu spends most of his time back in the Pride Lands helping Simba govern. He'll still make occasional stops to help his former king out with daily duties... provided it doesn't involved being used for pouncing practice.
  • Interestingly, Mufasa can been seen in two forms depending on where he is. In the Pantheon, he retains the body he had back in the Mortal Realm. But in the Pride Lands, he instead manifests for brief periods as a great spirit in the sky. He mainly appears in this form to encourage his son as well as give guidance to his two grandchildren Kiara and Kion.
  • While saddened that he couldn't save his homeworld from being destroyed by The Heartless, Mufasa was thankful Simba survived (as a spirit though) and aided Sora, Donald Duck, and Goofy in saving the worlds from the consuming darkness. As a result, he considers both Maleficent and Master Xehanort extremely dangerous, and was not happy to learn Scar had made an alliance with the former, teaming up with Pete to secure control over the Pride Lands. When they met face to face, Mufasa wasted no time in ripping Pete's ass a new one.
    • On that topic, he was proud to see Simba continue to aid Sora in protecting the worlds... though Mufasa has questioned why his son is set on fire every time he is summoned. Some gods like to say it's how things work around Sora; but for Mufasa, he thinks it has to do with his son's fiery spirit and drive to protect others, which made the old king eve more proud.
  • Most in the Pantheon assumed Mufasa would immediately tear Scar limb from limb should they ever meet again. After all, Scar was responsible for killing him in the first place. But the pair did cross paths, Mufasa didn't lunge at his murderer... but instead closed his eyes, shook his head and turned the other way, leaving the black-maned lion behind. Later, he explained that while Scar did many terrible things to him and the Pride Lands, Mufasa still saw him as his little brother and felt shame for not being able to help him get past his dark desires. Scar didn't take it well, and has since kept his distance.
  • One day, Simba came to him and explained about The Chosen One, who claimed to have met Mufasa's spirit in a similar manner to the last time the pair spoke. Simba didn't believe the human's claims for a second... a feeling shared by his father too. Turned out The Chosen One had mixed things up and confused Mufasa for another being named Mu-Shu Fasa. The lions simply laughed it off.
  • There are many humans in the Pantheon who use the lion as their sigil representing its royal status or strong family bonds. Mufasa was curious about these people and went to meet them... only to be absolutely horrified by what he came across. First was Lysandre, who, despite using the lion-like Pyroar on his team, wanted to destroy his world with the Ultimate Weapon to preserve its beauty. He freaked Mufasa out quite a bit... but he was more concerned about Tywin Lannister and his use of his children as pawns in his ambitions. Mufasa quickly opposed the Lord of Casterly Rock, and his daughter Cersei as well, and allied himself with Eddard Stark, who often converses with the lion king about everything except for the Game of Thrones. He's also on good terms with Aslan, and no, they're not related. Trust us. We checked.
    • That said, he became friends with Tywin's two sons, Tyrion and Jaime, though the latter initially made Mufasa uncomfortable for the whole "king slaying" thing.
  • Mufasa doesn't like hyenas. Not one single bit. One may attribute this to the natural rivalry between lions and spotted hyenas as top predators, though some quickly pointed out he never let them into the Pride Lands during his reign. But to be fair, you'd be mad too if the same animals who were involved in your death and tried to devour your son were in the Pantheon with you... and sharing the same Sub-House as the aforementioned son.
  • Once while trying to contact Simba, Mufasa accidentally emerged in the skies above Springfield, speaking to Lisa Simpson alongside Darth Vader and James Earl Jones. They were quickly told off by Bleeding Gums Murphy and were all sent on their way. For his part, Mufasa doesn't want to reminded of that incident and has come to respect Lisa's love for nature.
    • Just don't bring the fact he said Kimba before Simba. You will be met with three-hundred and eighty six pounds of muscle, teeth, and claws.
  • Unfortunately things for lions have not been looking well since Mufasa's time, with the species becoming a vulnerable species in the span of twenty years. As such, he's allied himself with Steve Irwin and Sir David Attenborough, both prominent advocates for the natural world and its conservation. The Nature Preservers have also offered to protect the Pride Lands from human encroachment as well, knowing what could be lost in such a short amount of time. Mufasa has accepted their offer but asked them not to kill any strangers... only drive them off.
  • Mufasa is well aware of the impact his death had on millions across the Multiverse, especially on the Pantheon's children. As such, he and his fellow Heroic Protectors of Family will often comfort and speak with the children, giving them words of guidance as he once did with Simba long ago. All he can hope for is for modern audiences to be prepared to see it once more. A slim hope but it's still there, nevertheless.
  • Remember...

    Piccolo 
Piccolo Jr., God of Parental Substitutes (The Namek, Mr. Piccolo, The Great Demon King Piccolo, Kamiccolo, Super Namek(ian), Ma Junior, Big Green, Mean Green, Green Dad)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/piccolo_arm_fold.png
  • Greater God (after literally re-absorbing God Himself into his being)
  • Symbol: His weighted armor
  • Theme Music: Piccolo's Theme, his Super Butoden 2 theme, Super Namek, A Little Help From a Friend when providing wisdom, Piccolo and Nail Fuse when providing motivation
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, formerly Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Father Figures, Removing his weighted cape, Taking the Bullet, Big Damn Heroes, Overprotective Substitute Dads, Doting Parent, Papa Wolf, Intense Training Methods, Formerly Literal Split Personality
  • Domains: Sacrifice, Meditation, Solitude
  • Heralds: Kami and Nail (his fusees, usually converse with him in his head)
  • Allies: Every Good God in this house, Son Gohan, Son Goku, Krillin, Son Goten and Trunks, Androids 17 and 18, Vegeta, Asura, King, Sol Badguy, Kirito and Asuna, Yui Kirigaya, Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, Commander Bryan Mills, Kenshiro, Nico Minoru, Yu Narukami
  • Enemies: Every evil God in this house, the Moon, Frieza, Cell, Raditz, Majin Buu, the Incubators, Broly, Quinella
  • Special Relationship: King Piccolo (his father/original self)
  • When Demon King Piccolo was slain by Son Goku, he spat out an egg containing a final son, one who would carry on his name and his will as a sort of reincarnation, namely taking revenge on Goku and then re-conquering Earth. After quickly aging into his prime, Piccolo Jr. started out as a heated rival to Goku, fighting him in the finals of the 23rd World Martial Arts tournament in a hellacious encounter. Years later, the two banded together against the overwhelming threat of the Saiyan Raditz. This battle concluded with an opportunity which Piccolo relished, as he used his brand new special beam cannon technique, Makankosappo, to kill both the man that took down his father/previous life and the greater threat whom Goku was sacrificing himself to hold in place, his own evil brother.
    • However, Raditz warned of his two comrades, the Elite Saiyans Nappa and Vegeta, who were leagues stronger than him. Piccolo took Goku's son Gohan away for training to prepare for the arrival of this new threat in about a year's time. He'd intended to convert Gohan into a demon-minded warrior the same as he was, but the exact opposite happened; Gohan's earnest nature had won him over to the point he became a trusted ally, regarding Gohan as his first friend. In fact, he stepped in front of a killer energy shot from Nappa to save the boy during the battle with the Saiyans. Since then and a wish orb resurrection later, he's been Gohan's trusted mentor and secondary father/uncle figure, despite being almost the same age.
  • Spends some time into the House of Commerce to open an orphanage for kids. It's really hard to remember that he was once a Demon King who tried to take over the mortal world.
  • Became fast friends with Asura, who respected his ability to care for Gohan despite not being his real father. Piccolo in return heard his tale in how he saved his daughter Mithra from a serious threat.
  • Piccolo is very good friends with Mr. Koiwai because he sees him as a very good adoptive father; however, Piccolo is not very fond of Mr. Koiwai's occasional childish and immature behavior. He soon changed his mind on the matter after witnessing how his childish behavior makes Yotsuba so happy and full of joy.
  • Is known to meditate for hours or even several days at a time. His focus is strong enough that only a select few have been able to pester him out of it. Factoring his levitation with the charged aura he can produce, the House of Food once carefully relocated him to use him as a bug zapper for one of their picnics.
  • Piccolo has gone on to assimilate two other Namekians into his being to increase his strength in response to certain threats. One was a warrior called Nail who was injured against Frieza. The other, the once-nameless child of Katas that had split off his dark side to become Kami, an act which created the original Demon King Piccolo in the first place. This made Piccolo a man of three halves, cemented the Namekian's true name, and ultimately, gave him two head-mates. For the sake of the Pantheon, they function as his Heralds.
  • As a reformed abuser turned Papa Wolf, Piccolo holds a special hatred towards unrepentant abusers and deceivers of innocent children, and is hence presently hell bent on exterminating Kyubey's entire race. Yet he is frustrated to no end that there seems to be no end to their numbers no matter how many of the little bastards he guts and fries.
  • Is frequently seen playing pool and drinking beer with Commander Bryan Mills, Lieutentant Ellen Ripley and Kenshiro; the action heroes admire each other deeply for ALL being parents or parent figures who took on and destroyed armies to protect their beloved children.
  • Jin Kazama offers him a spot in the GUAG Anti-Parental Abuse Club; something of which Piccolo accepts.
  • Is really good friends with Sol Badguy for one reason: Both atone for their actions in their pasts.
  • Piccolo's Clothes Beam comes in very handy when there are too many clothes for everything to be washed on Laundry Day.
  • Anyone who comes to him for training should note that his methods are a bit...dodgy.
    Piccolo: DODGE!
  • Befriended fellow adoptive-parents Kirito and Asuna, and regularly has afternoon tea with them; their close relationship with their adoptive daughter Yui reminds him of his loving relationship with his surrogate child Son Gohan. The Demon King is particularly fond of Yui, as her kindness, wisdom and bravery is also very reminiscent of Gohan's.
    • The trio are in discussion with Pirate Captain Edward Newgate and Dominic Torretto on forming a League of Adoptive Parents, a harbor of safety where orphaned children may seek love and shelter.
      • The League deeply respects the bravery of Lieutenant Ripley, who single-handedly stormed, battled, and triumphed against an alien hive to protect her adopted daughter Newt, and invited her to take the position of the Team Mom. After some prodding from Yui (and Newt herself), the former Warrant Officer of The Nostromo graciously accepted.
    • On the note of Kirito and family, after hearing about Underworld Administrator Quinella thanks to an incident she had with Zamasu in which she displayed surprising depths of power, Piccolo is making sure that Gohan keeps up with his training. He wants to make sure that Gohan can take the goddess in combat if need be.
  • While Piccolo admires Nico Minoru for her dedication in taking care of Molly Hayes, he holds an opinion that, being a teenage orphan herself, she also deserves a parental figure. So upon discovering a version of her in another reality he arranged for her to be Happily Adopted by that world's version of Loki.
  • Piccolo often comes to the defense of Goku whenever the latter is questioned on his parenting habits. He settles the issue by pointing out what their superior said on the matter: Saiyans lack a brooding instinct unlike humans or other beings, such as Namekians. In fact, Piccolo pointed out that Saiyans rarely got together for love and thus raising families was very much the unusual thing there, which he attributed to the warrior-based culture. Goku and Vegeta's circumstances were rare; in fact, he surmised that Vegeta being raised by his father was in part because he was the Prince of Saiyans, but does not doubt the king loved his son.
    • Furthermore, he addresses that beyond Saiyans having different neurobiologies, that Goku was raised only for a while by Grandpa Gohan before his accidental death. Despite this, contrary to popular belief, Goku was a constant guiding presence in young Gohan's formative years with the exception of time apart due to training, injury, and/or death, all related to crisis situations they and their friends faced down. As such, it's unfair to accuse Goku of bad parenting since Gohan turned out fine thanks to both; being half-Saiyan, Gohan may have been more naturally inclined towards autonomy than a human child, and Goku's steadfast habit of rising to the occasion before his son's eyes while later encouraging him that he could do the same helped push Gohan forward. Piccolo won't deny that he helped, but given his original intent for training Gohan was in part to mold the kid into the Demon King's image, their bond is a textbook cross-example of Stockholm and Lima Syndrome which only became healthy as quickly as it did because Gohan, being Goku's son, apparently inherited some of his ability to turn enemies into friends just by being his pure self.
    • Another revelation Piccolo came across involved Goku and Vegeta's choices of wives. Like many, he was confused as to why Goku would put up with Chichi's stern and feisty attitude towards education and economics to the point of disregarding how important fighting has been over the years, or why Vegeta would tolerate mess from an heiress like Bulma who's simultaneously far weaker physically yet every bit as arrogant and strong-willed as he is. Then he heard Vegeta explain to Goku that Saiyans are naturally attracted to strong-willed woman.
    Piccolo: That. Explained. Everything.
  • Had a tough time with the surprise ascension of his father/original self. King Piccolo was under the impression that Piccolo Jr.'s 'friendly rivalry/friendship' with Goku was a ruse to get stronger and kill him for good, meeting him to discuss future plans. Jr., of course, set his father off the deep end by informing him that Heel–Face Turn was sincere, and moreso that he had re-fused with his good half and became a father figure to Goku's son Gohan. What followed was a Finger Beam that destroyed Piccolo's entire temple (and an outer wall of the House of Family). Piccolo has since made it clear to his father that on no account is he to step near Goku, his family or his friends, just him if he values his life. While King Piccolo was disappointed, he still visits his son sometimes because well, he's his son. At one point, King Piccolo expressed a desire to fuse with his son to conquer the world, but Piccolo Jr. makes it clear that if both of them had to fuse, he would remain the dominant personality.
    • Piccolo grew out of his fixation on revenge against Goku after killing him and Raditz and training Gohan to face the Saiyans. However, his father doesn't consider this to count except the part where Jr. greatly surpassed the King and could potentially defeat Goku for good if he put his mind to it. Rather, he wants Piccolo to embrace his destiny and return to his side. Jr. isn't having any of this.
    Piccolo: Destiny, dad? Destiny is choice. And my choice is to stay a glorified babysitter with a friend I know I'll never surpass. It's a pitiful existence, but I'd rather live in that misery than ever have to be part of you again!

  • The grandson of Fire Lord Sozin, Ozai ruled over the Fire Nation with an iron fist, showing little to no empathy for anyone, even his own family. When his son Zuko spoke out of turn at a war meeting, Ozai challenged him to an Agni Kai, and when he didn't fight back? It got ugly fast. And though he treated his daughter Azula with a little more respect, Ozai still manipulated her into a pawn for his own conquest, treating her coldly and inducing psychological abuse upon her. He would have burnt the world to a crisp had it not been for Avatar Aang, who not only defeated the Fire Lord, but took his bending away as well. Ozai had lost the war, and was locked up in a small cell, left to rot away for the rest of his days... then three strangers came knocking. A woman with long magenta hair, a man with short blue hair, and a feline who could walk and talk like a human. The three introduced themselves as members of Team Rocket, and were sent by their boss Giovanni to free and bring Ozai to the Pantheon. Almost instantly, he accepted the offer.
    • Once back, Ozai soon met with Giovanni, who explained his ambition for multiversal conquest and made an offer the former Fire Lord couldn't refuse. Giovanni would restore his firebending and grant him a position in the Pantheon as a god. in return, Ozai would become a member of Team Rainbow Rocket, serving as an enforcer to the organization. It sickened the monarch to serve under a mere criminal thug... but some compromises had to be made. He accepted, and with some "assistance", Ozai had his bending abilities restored to their former glory. The Phoenix King had returned.
  • He was quickly placed into the House of Family as the newest member of the Child Abuse Supporters. At first, the other three members were hesitant to welcome the former Fire Lord. Then they learned of his backstory. Almost immediately, Heiachi and Lady Tremaine warmed up to Ozai, while the lion Scar took a little longer. He probably saw a bit of himself in Ozai, what with taking the throne after killing the previous King/Fire Lord. The Heroic Protectors of Family were horrified by their newest enemy, and intend on keeping every child in the Pantheon at least a good mile away from him. Two, just in case.
  • When word reached Aang that Ozai had returned, his blood ran cold. It was understandable, as the Fire Lord was considered the Ultimate Evil of his homeworld, and the atrocities committed by the Fire Nation under his rule were hard to forget. He quickly told his friends, who all shared his feelings of shock, anger and horror as they had been affected by Ozai in one way or another. But it was Fire Lord Zuko and his uncle Iroh who had the strongest reaction. The abuse Zuko had to endure was what drove him to switch sides and join with Aang, and Iroh... well it's pretty obvious. With this knowledge, Team Avatar is ready to face off against Ozai once more, and Aang will not hesitate to remove his bending once more.
  • Serving as his High Priestess is a woman who, in some ways, was different from him. Malory Archer is her name, and while she did negatively affected her son both emotionally and psychologically, she wouldn't go as far as to scar Sterling's face as Ozai did to Zuko. But she was willing to aid both Ozai and Giovanni for her own personal gain, which infuriated both Archer and Lana Kane to no end. To be fair, Malory was a secret agent once, so perhaps, in her own twisted way, she's getting back into the swing of things.
  • Using techniques similar to Northern Shaolin Kung-Fu, Ozai can bend and manipulate fire to devastating effect. So devastating in fact, that he's considered the most powerful firebender in the world, second only to Aang in terms of bending. That said, he was surprised to see other beings who could wield fire just as well as him. One such being is Roy Mustang, who learned of Ozai's arrival from the Elric Brothers. The Flame Alchemist and Fire Lord traded a few choice words, along with showing their skills in both bending and alchemy, ending in a stalemate which nearly destroyed the House of Military and Warfare. It only stopped when Aang and Edward Elric arrived and drove Ozai off, but the Fire Lord is looking forward to the rematch.
  • Being allies with his daughter Azula, it was only natural that Cinder Fall would ally with Ozai, what with her fiery powers as the Fall Maiden. This is rather ironic, as Ozai has come to cut ties with Azula following the end of the war, refusing to speak to her afterwards... which has made things awkward since she's become a member of King Bradley's High Command.
  • The deities in the House of Fire & Heat had mixed feelings about Ozai, the majority of which was negative. Natsu Dragneel and the Flame Princess weren't happy with his ascension, the latter especially since he reminded her of her own abusive father - a father she usurped. As well, Hestia opposes him for the way he uses fire for destruction, rather than comfort, and as one of the most benevolent of Olympians, she also detests the Fire Lord's megalomaniac tendencies. Ozai thought about confronting her but quickly realized it was a bad idea. Nobody is stupid enough to go and invoke the wrath of the Greek and Roman gods, in particular Zeus/Jupiter who could and would easily tear Ozai apart.
    • He was surprised to learn of another Fire Lord in the Pantheon other than Zuko. At first, Ozai thought it was his father Azulon, or even Sozin himself... but it wasn't either. Instead, Ragnaros the Firelord was what greeted him, and at first, Ozai assumed he could sway the elemental to his side, giving his firebending a much-needed boost. Many feared of the potential destruction this alliance would bring... But things went south fast. Ragnaros found Ozai too arrogant for his liking and was not a fan of sharing the title of Fire Lord. He declared the human unworthy and drove him out of his temple.
  • One deity who took an interest in Ozai was Aerys II Targaryen, better known as "The Mad King". Aerys found the art of firebending too irresistible to pass up and seeing Ozai torch the Earth Kingdom made him giggle like a little girl with joy. After that, the two became friends, with the Mad King showing the Fire Lord his cache of wildfire, and has dared Ozai to bend it. Ozai has taken the challenge into consideration.
  • Ozai is also surprisingly close to the Joker, of all people. The Clown Prince of Crime puts it down to them both "wanting to watch the world burn". The fact they have the same voice also helps.
    • Tywin, Jaime, and Tyrion Lannister, despite their differences, immediately opposed Ozai, whom they viewed as being no better than Aerys himself, with the trio even going so far as to side with Avatar Aang in trying to stop the Fire Lord from controlling wildfire. Jaime was also reminded, after watching Ozai torch the Earth Kingdom, of what Cersei did to the Sept of Baelor, and has made it his goal to prevent her from meeting with the new god.
  • He's also enemies with Zonda and the Seven, most notably Gibril, Tenjian, and Zonda herself. While they primarily have grudges against Muggles, the three have a particular hatred against parents like him given the neglect and/or abuse they suffered in the past. While Zonda at least keeps her anger contained, Tenjian and Gibril do little to hide the scathing venom behind their words.
    Gibril: "Let's see how cocky you are when I drain your blood and turn you into another drooling zombie!"
    Tenjian: "Your flames burn brightly, that much I admit. But in the name of my sister and my new family my ice shall snuff out your cinders forever. It wouldn't be the first time, would it not?"
  • Sister Friede and Father Ariandel Don't really like Ozai much at all. Their beef comes from the fact that fire is able to burn the Painted World which resulted in their rebirth. Something the pair definitely don't want, as it would wipe away the last civilization on it, along with their efforts to propagate it even as the painting rots. That said, Friede's use of dark pyromancy has caught Ozai's attention, and he's looking into controlling it for his own gain.
  • As a member of the new Team Rainbow Rocket, Ozai has become intrigued by the Legendary Pokémon of Giovanni's home universe, especially the fire-elemental ones. Moltres and Ho-oh have been considered for capture, due to their connection with The Phoenix but they were quick to avoid capture... but it was the mighty Groudon who truly caught Ozai's eye. In his eyes, the Continent Pokémon's power over the weather could be used to power his firebending as Sozin's Comet once did, and so he went after it. He forced Team Magma leader and former Rainbow Rocket member Maxie to show the location of Groudon and, most importantly, what was needed to control it. Maxie reluctantly told Ozai of the Seafloor Cavern... and that he needed the Blue Orb to control it. Ozai got his ass handed to him hard. While he escaped with his life, Ozai has learned... and he will return.
    • Maxie's rival and co-god, Team Aqua's Archie, has vowed to take down Ozai himself should he try to control Groudon upon the Pantheon, even threatening to unleash Kyogre upon the former Fire Lord. Ozai merely laughed at the remark, calling Archie's boast for what it was... then Maxie spoke.
    Maxie: "That was no boast... He meant it."
  • Luke Skywalker was not happy to learn of Ozai's ascension, as he views the Fire Lord as being no different from the Emperor. It certainly pissed him off to learn the abusive, imperialistic asshole who moved in shares his voice actor, especially after seeing what happened to Zuko in his youth. This caught the attention of Darth Vader who noted the irony of the situation but considered Ozai to be a complete disgrace of a father, praising Zuko for standing up to the bastard.
  • Ozai was surprised to learn of an alternate universe where the Autobots and Decepticons made contact with the Avatar world, leading to the latter faction to join the Fire Nation and, with the coming of Sozin's comet, became his universe's Nemesis Prime. The Megatron in the Pantheon was dumbfounded by a human becoming a Transformer but did admire Ozai's ambitious nature and offered the Fire Lord his assistance in retaking his world. Ozai thanked Megatron for the aid and plans to use the Decepticons for future invasion purposes. He just won't use Starscream for them. The Seeker is just too treacherous.
  • Yes, Ozai is well aware of Voldemort quoting his exchange with the Avatar when confronting Harry Potter, albeit with some changed words. He just doesn't like to bring it up much.
  • There has been some debate over whether firebenders can manipulate the flames of other fire elementals, or if it's dependent on their will. Ozai hasn't thought about it but he's looking into it.
  • Just like his daughter, his ego and pride caused him to earn the anger and hatred of deities way above his league. Guess It Runs in the Family. For starters, he once saw a certain purple humanoid cat eating pudding and decided to flaunt his arrogance by calling himself the Phoenix King in public and claiming he had "all the power in the world", considering the feline alien "ridiculous and weak". The extraterrestrial who turned out to be none other than Beerus ignored him and resumed enjoying his food, prompting Ozai to insult him and burn his pudding to a crisp. The Destroyer Deity turned furious, accepted his challenge to a fight. You can rightfully guess how that turned out. Barely escaping with his life, Ozai has since then become terrified of Beerus and tries to stand away from the God of Destruction as metaphysically far as possible. This made him learn that there are beings far more powerful than himself. Plenty of other deities even joke that Ozai had to change his pants after that encounter, causing the beaten and humiliated Fire Lord to swear vengeance on all who dare mock him. Though thankfully, this won't be happening for a long time due to Beerus, who remembers this incident with a grin and replied with the following:
    Beerus: There are people who honestly thought a mortal human who's in over his head even in his own world would beat a true god who can destroy planets and galaxies? That annoying bug was put in his rightful place— the bottom of the food chain.
    • Asura has also added him to his shitlist after Aang and Zuko told him what a douchebag dad he is, as well as a power hungry iredeemable sociopath. The thought of challenging the angry god to a fight quickly crossed Ozai's brain, but after his experience with Beerus as well as learning that Asura is also a being easily capable of destroying and surviving celestial bodies, he decided to keep his distance since that would be a certified death wish. The Fire Lord having suffered one defeat too many, for the first time in his life made the right choice of escaping and retreating to hide in his headquarters.

  • The younger brother of king of Pride Rock Mufasa and uncle to his son Simba, Scar had always desired to be ruler of Pride Rock, as over time he had become filled with the idea that he should be king instead of his brother. By the time of Simba's coming of age he had been consumed with hatred for his brother and even cursed his nephew's existence for bypassing him as the successor to the throne. To remedy this, he killed Mufasa by dropping him into a wildebeest stampede and persuaded Simba to leave his home as 'punishment', after which he took Pride Rock with his army of hyenas enforcing his authority. When Simba returned to assume his birthright, a series of unfortunate events left Scar at the bottom of a chasm, where his treacherous (and hungry) former minions began devouring him and left him to die in the wildfire. However, fate would not be done with him just yet, as his actions cemented his place as a patron of evil uncles and brothers across the entirety of fiction.
  • Scar staged an Evil Plan to alienate Darth Vader from his worshipers and take control of much of Vader's power. However, he still hasn't learned to actually kill his enemies, so another reversal is possible. Luckily for him, Anakin settled into a different seat in the Pantheon, one based on an iconic moment that Scar's history has no version of.
  • Loves to lord over his fellow Disney villains that he's the most successful of them by hanging on to power for years before his gruesome death.
  • Scar is one of the few beings in the universe to turn into a Heartless and retain his original appearance, though it was vanquished not long afterwards by Sora and Simba. It was said that even Xehanort couldn't believe this.
    • Scar has heard rumors of Lady Tremaine and her daughters becoming Heartless after their deaths. While Scar hasn't commented on that, he has already allied with her.
  • Many animal gods in the pantheon are told to be cautious around Scar and his hyena army, due to their desire to eat them. They nearly succeeded with Daxter before, who was saved in time by Jak.
  • While Arturia Pendragon is known to have an affinity for lions, she finds Scar to be an absolutely terrible being due to him being murderous and self-centered.
  • There have been rumors that Vergil Sparda is taking the title of Evil Brothers from him. Scar himself has stated that Vergil isn't taking the title from him anytime soon, as Vergil is too busy training to be stronger. That said, the two have been on decent terms with each other.
  • He originally had The Evil Prince when the House of Royalty was first formed, but the title was revoked upon investigation that he was not an effective ruler to hold the title. Scar wasn't pleased to hear this.
  • Ghetsis has looked at how Scar emotionally abused Simba and is considering recruiting him for a group of Abusive Parents. Scar is looking at it with interest.
  • Do NOT mention Mufasa's name in front of Scar.
    Scar: I'm TEN times the king Mufasa was!
  • Caesar doesn't like Scar that much, as the lion's actions remind Caesar of Koba did to his own group.
  • He's had a growing dislike towards the Demon Hunter Illidan Stormrage. Apparently Scar really likes his song, but whenever his song is about to blare and Illidan was nearby to hear it, he'll get disgusted about a certain 'hyena' incident, and tells him off about letting Simba loose on him and overpower him, then the hyenas attacking him, in other words, "Be Prepared? YOU ARE NOT PREPARED!" Scar prefers to think that Illidan was just being jealous that at least he could kill off his goody-two-shoes brother instead of being one-upped all the time.
  • He initially had a mutual relationship with The Professor, but when the scientist overheard the lion discussing how he nearly killed his nephew and killed his brother, and then drove said nephew away in order to conquer the Pridelands, the scientist (who is very close to his own nephew) immediately lost his composure and challenged Scar to a fight. Scar effortlessly trounced the scientist, but, aware of his reputation as a truly pitiful villain in the Pantheon, spared his life and moved on.
  • Three conflicting origins have been given of how he got his Scar, with at least two of them addressing the question of his true name.
    • The first account was that when he and Mufasa were younger, he recklessly engineered a buffalo stampede to try and make Mufasa look foolish so he'd be given the spot of king by looking better in comparison. It backfired, and he got his scar, as well as his name, as a result. According to this account, he asked to be called Scar so he'd never forget, and his original name was Taka. Unfortunately, in the source language of the Pride lions' names, that name means "trash". When questioned about this, Mufasa quickly insisted their father Ahadi was a good king who would never set his two sons apart from birth by giving one of them a name like that, while Scar pointed out that the story couldn't decide whether their father carried traits from both of them or looked similar to Mufasa and later Simba. When it was learned that this story was actually told by Rafiki as a lesson to another young lion, it made perfect sense. The crazy old monkey was always against Scar's treacherous ambitions, and it's possible he thought the scar came from that incident.
    • The second account, given by Scar himself, was that back when he was younger, he was bitten by a mysterious cobra after being snared into a trap by a strange lion, and the snake's venom was what ultimately corrupted him. Simba and Mufasa called him out on this, saying he was always narcissistic and power-hungry, and the venom only unleashed his inhibitions. In addition, he was originally named after Askari, the founder of the Lion Guard. This appears far closer to the truth, as it accounts for his own history as one of the fiercest leaders the Lion Guard has ever had and demonstrates his capricious nature, taking it as disrespect that Mufasa responded to the incident by teasing him with the nickname Scar when it was a shorthand of his honorable true name.
    • The third and most recent account was that before Mufasa was king, he had also vied for Sarabi's paw in marriage, and he got the scar in a fight between him and Mufasa to decide who would get the privillege and position of king. This seems to come from an overall more dramatic retelling of events and doesn't address Scar's name at all, though, so most people take it as if the fight maybe did happen.
  • Forged an alliance with the homunculus King Bradley, who approached him about potentially working together to aid his conquest of the Pride Lands in return for some other help. Another of the Homunculi has decided to cut himself in on this alliance. Given that these two are associated with pride, wrath, and supremacy, this is not surprising, but he is keeping them at arm's length in case what they want is too steep.
  • My anger has grown for far too long!

  • Interested In: Grand United Alliance of Evil
  • Disregards: Dis (The Divine Comedy), Yuuki Terumi
  • Complicated Relationship: Riku Asakura/Ultraman Geed (his genetic clone/son)
  • A member of the Ultra Alien Race dedicated to protecting and watching over the universe, Ultraman Belial battled against Alien Empera and his armies alongside Ken (aka Father of Ultra) in defending the Land of Light. However, Belial took to being awed by Empera's power and felt cheated that Ken was given a promotion as Supreme Commander of the Space Garrison, in addition to winning the heart of Ultrawoman Marie (later Mother of Ultra) who Belial pinned after. This led Belial to seek the artificial sun of the Land of Light, which seared him badly and resulted in him being exiled by the Ultra Race. Desiring revenge, he made a deal with Alien Rayblood to merge with one another and equip the Giga Battle Nizer. Leading an army of a hundred monsters, Belial attacked the Land of Light and defeated Ken, but not before he himself was defeated by Ultraman King and banished into the Space Prison for 20 Millennia.
    • This did not stop him, as Belial would be freed by a Zarab alien, regain the Giga Battle Nizer and embark on another crusade to take the Land of Light, succeeding in neutralizing the Ultra Race. He would later come into blows with Ultraseven and establish the Belial Galactic Empire, desiring to conquer the entire universe. Finally, Belial would confront and battle against his final Arch-Enemy, his son, Ultraman Geed, who resided on Earth as Riku Asakura. After thousands of years of attempting to conquer the universe and later wanting to destroy it, Belial was killed by his son, though Geed felt bad about the amount of frustration, exhaustion and bitterness he endured throughout and Belial himself refusing redemption.
  • In his very first moments in the Pantheon, Belial straddled across the cosmos, looking for Asakura, fully aware that he had ascended some time ago. Taking residence in the House of Family Belial demanded to know where his son was and didn't care about intrusion. A chance meeting with Relius Clover went badly for the latter and Belial promptly thrashed him around the House and forced Relius to relinquish his representation of Archnemesis Dad to him. These events, alongside his prior reputation, have made Ultraman Belial two of the most feared members in the House of Family, a position he shares with Archaon the Everchosen.
    • Ever since his beatdown and humiliation, Relius has since taken up the trope of Irisless Eye Mask Of Mystery and retreated to the House of Costumes for residence. He now dreads Belial for his vast strength, ruthlessness and sheer malevolence. Ironic, given what kind of person Relius really is, much of the House of Family have since taken up to mocking him about it. Belial on the other hand couldn't care less and has grander ambitions to look forward to.
  • Not too long after making his way into the Pantheon, Belial immediately bought fourth his empire as his heralds. Emperor Palpatine was... amused by this news, but immediately considered Belial a rival as it became clear that while both of them are galactic threats, Palpatine is more keen on governing it as a tyrant; Belial would rather blow it up, though he does seem to relish his position as a tyrant as well.
  • Although he joined the Grand United Alliance of Destruction as their end goals were aligned with his than Melkor's Belial still has a very significant role and influence in the Demonic Legion, where he takes the guise of Kaiser Belial. Because of the Ultramen's presence in the Toku Base, Belial is usually seen governing an army of evil forces who've maintained their enmity against Belial's race or have served him in the past. He's nominated his own version of the Heavenly Kings, consisting of fellow evil Ultras: Camilla, Evil Tiga and Dark Zagi as his lieutenants along with Iaron, Dark Go Ne, The Darkness Five and Kei Fukuide. Since his full-time ascension into the Pantheon, Belial was more than happy to bring them along as his heralds, even if he doesn't care for any of them beyond furthering his goals. Originally he had planned to tempt Jugglus Juggler to become one of his heralds, but the Majin rejected his offer, claiming he had work to do elsewhere.
    • That said, being in the Demonic Legion also means that Belial is in some way, associated with the GUAE, much to his annoyance. He's made it pretty clear time and again that he's more at home with the GUAD than anything else and finds more common ground with Nekron than he does with Melkor. Melkor thinks Belial is being whiny about the situation whereas Nekron is making some attempt to help out Belial in his troubles.
  • Riku Asakura immediately took to alarming the Toku Base about the threat and reputation of Belial and the GUAG faction has taken arms to begin their battle against the malicious Ultraman. Belial himself is not satisfied with Ultraman Zero not being around to combat against him, but given that his son killed him, he'll have to make do with Asakura.
    • Once he got note of Zero's ascension, Belial was thrilled, in the worst possible way that thrilled can be described, to hear the news and tried to go into his temple to "greet" the new arrival, luckily Zero's allies helped him thwart his raid and Zero once more triumphed and sent Belial packing. Ever since he's been plotting to take down Zero once and for all, as well as annihilating any and all of Zero's allies beforehand to make him suffer. Zero himself was furious upon knowing Belial's long-standing presence in the Pantheon and returns the fallen Ultra's sentiment.
  • He was quick to consider himself a competition against Melkor. The God of Evil accepts the challenge to see who gets to destroy the Pantheon first, though Belial himself is not a full member of the Grand United Alliance of Evil. Instead, he wound up allying himself with Nekron and the Grand United Alliance of Destruction as his end goals align more with the latter towards the former.
    • All that said, he has a rather cordial rivalry with Darkseid. The fallen Ultraman sees the Lord of Tyranny as a fellow dictator and is thoroughly impressed by the excessive torture and cruelty he is able to show. That said, despite being a tyrant himself, Belial prefers destruction over dystopic lording. Darkseid however sees Belial as a better competition than Melkor and encourages him to embrace his villainy, though he's made it clear that they're only allies if Belial relinquishes his alliance with Nekron and the GUAD, something which isn't easy.
  • While he's struck a deal with the Child Abuse Supporters, the latter have asserted that they are the representatives of the bad side of parenting and family. Belial however counteracted by stating that he is more powerful than all of them and that he's a bigger threat in the long run. Not that he's wrong, given he comes from a race of superpowerful aliens and has come close to destroying the galaxy at some points. That said, their alliance is rather stable and Belial is content with advocating for further child abuse and neglect.
  • Hates Superman and Orion immensely. It doesn't help in that both of them are similar to the Ultra species by virtue of being heroic and powerful in their own right. That said, he's amused by the fact that Orion is Darkseid's son, which reminded him a lot of his cloned son, Asakura. In turn, Superman and Orion see him as an maniacal warlord not unlike Darkseid and Mongul and have vowed to stop him at all costs, with Orion even forming a close relation with Asakur.
  • His omnicidal nature allowed for good relations with King Ghidorah and Gigan, two kaijus who are just as depraved as he is and Belial even offered them a chance to join his empire. Although the two are currently more concerned with their own schemes, they'll often tag along with Belial if they want to wreak havoc for the hell of it.
    • Hearing about Godzilla, Belial immediately engaged him in battle, eager to see why he was called "King of the Monsters". It paid off; Belial relished the fight and wanted to kill Godzilla partly because he saw him as a Worthy Opponent and partly because he felt killing him would mean most kaiju would swear fealty to him. Fortunately, a timely intervention from Mothra and Shin Hayata forced him to retreat. Since then, he's planning for a comeback with Ghidorah and Gigan.
  • Among his fellow comrades in the GUAD, he has a strange tie-in with Oryx, the Taken King. Both of them desire a chaotic tyranny and are willing to nuke the galaxy if it means achieving their goals. There is a major difference in that Oryx does truly care about his offspring whereas Belial would do his damn best to kill his son. Despite that, Oryx isn't going to intrude Belial from his fixation towards Asakura and the two are content with what they do best.
  • Loathes Team Dai-Gurren as he is pretty concerned with their breaking the impossible shtick. Naturally, he selects Nia Teppelin as the one hew views with most disdain as Nia's overall nature and Power of Trust annoys and baffles Belial to no end. He also finds Lordgenome to be a sore disappointment in giving up on killing Nia and honestly wishes to kill both of them with his bare hands, that is unless he goes through Simon first. And no, Belial isn't working with the Anti-Spiral in this regard as Belial is uprfront about destruction, in contrast to the Anti-Spiral's approach in maintaining population control over the universe.
  • He takes it with pride that he is the first villain from his franchise to ascend into the Pantheon. That said, he's still somewhat sore about the fact that Geed got there first. Not that it matters as Belial now has another shot at killing him, alongside Shin Hayata and Gai Kurenai.
  • Being a Fallen Hero of the worst kind, Belial quickly struck an alliance with the Plutonian, who is more than pleased to see someone be of relatable acquaintance. The two of them are currently planning out ways to invade and lay destruction towards the Pantheon. To the terror of the Pantheon should Belial reach out to his Atrocious form and the Plutonian figuring out his reality-altering powers.
  • Malicious he may be, Belial is also opposed by a few villainous deities. Chief among them was Zamasu, who is disgusted and irritated by the amount of destruction Belial caused throughout the cosmos, in addition to being a Satanic Archetype. Belial simply snickered and called out Zamasu for also being a rebel just like him, a fact that the fallen Kai does not take kindly. He's also opposed by Malekith and Evolto, though for different reasons; Malekith thinks he's bonkers about his goals and sees him as being similar to Nagash regarding destruction and egotism whereas Evolto gets reminded of his older brother Killbus whenever he's reminded by the fallen Ultraman.
  • He's also been amused to hear the ascension of fellow Reionics, Rei. Belial once tried to make the young Reionics join his cause to no avail before brainwashing him to force him into doing so. Now Belial is plotting to do so one more time, as means of having another Reionics to strengthen his forces and gain control over his valuable and powerful Kaiju, but has been seeking out allies that can help him make the brainwashing permanent this time around. Oddly enough, he's been amused to think that Rei can be considered an uncle-of-sorts to his son/genetic clone, Riku.
  • One Toku villain that he does not get along with is Yapool, Yapool loathes Belial not just for being an Ultra, evil or not it matters not to Yapool, but also for having "stolen" two of his lieutenants, Iaron and Dark Go Ne, who defected from Yapool's branch of the Alien Empera Army for the Belial Galactic Empire. Belial himself doesn't feels like tolerating his fellow villain either, despite both having a grudge against the Land of Light, and will only reluctantly work with Yapool for the purpose of taking down the Ultras, while both plot to take the other down once the deed is done.
  • Even in death, Belial's influence can spread havock, as Riku was quick to inform the Pantheon's many houses of the threat of the Devil's Splinter, fragments of Belial's body that carry his malice and evil that drive those who enter in contact with it mad, evil or empowers them as well as being useful for creating deadly weapons of war. Many villains have raced to find these Splinters and employ them in their schemes, while Belial has thought up of finding ways to use them for his plans before Yapool or any rival of his does.
  • Recent events have left an alternate version of Belial, known as Early Style Belial, running around; this Belial is distinguished due to lacking the corrupting influence of Rayblood, instead being empowered by the Absolutian warrior, Absolute Tartarus. Reports of this Belial have been scarce, though all deities watch out for the possibility of him meeting his main timeline self and possibly teaming up or causing trouble on his own.
