Pantheon / Fantastical Beasts

Go To

The domain of fictional creatures. While pretty much all the beasts in the Pantheon are fictional portrayals of creatures, these are fictional fictional portrayals of creatures. Yes, it usually makes more sense to call them creatures from mythology, but some are a bit too recent to be called that.

Refer to the Hall of Fantastic Races for humanoid creatures. Dragons have their own Hall. While Lapras', Red Gyarados', the Krakens', and Tidehunters' titles would qualify them for this Hall, they are more at home in the Hall of Aquatic Life.

Like the inhabitants, this hall is hard to come across, with those who visit either not revealing anything or finding their claimed locations seemingly disproven. It's rumored that the hall is kept hidden and mobile in a suitcase that's Bigger on the Inside. Its inhabitants have not commented on this.

Greater Gods

    Leto Atreides II 
Leto Atreides II, God of Sand Worms (Master of Fate, Pawn of Fate, Shai-Hulud, Shaitan, The Worm Who Is God, The God-Emperor, The Divided God, The Tyrant)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fe29f5fa_f2d8_4908_82d5_958c70ede78a.jpeg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Atreides Hawk
  • Alignment: Lawful Good, Lawful Neutral, Lawful Evil, Omniscience Morality License by the time of his ascension to God-Emperor
  • Portfolio: Psychic Powers, Genetic Memory, Ancient Conspiracy, Sending in the Clones, Half Human Hybrids and of course, Sand Worms
  • Domains: Time, Space, Ecology, Religion, Memory, Oppression
  • Heralds: The Zensunni fanatic Fremen, Leto's all-female Fish Speaker army
  • Followers: the Sand Worms of Saturn, Kalros, the Thresher Maw Matriarch
  • Allies: Graboids
  • Rivals: Luke Skywalker, the God Emperor of Mankind, Shulk
  • Avoids: The Hall of Water & Moisture
  • Respects: Mandy
  • Although he now resides in the House of Beasts due to his new rule over Sand Worms (the original story he came from having codified and named the trope "Sand Worm"), he normally can't be found in this house. Instead, he can normally be found in the House of Mentalism.
  • Leto II sees all and rules all through his exclusive control of the Spice Melange, key to raising human awareness, and through his perfect prescient vision. He also possesses the heightened senses and physical abilities of a Sand Worm.
  • He is also currently in a heated legal battle with the Imperium of Man over who exactly owns the copyright to the title "God-Emperor". Given that the Imperium's idea of legal proceedings in this area involves chainswords and flamethrowers, the case is progressing somewhat slowly. The God-Emperor himself, though, doesn't really care. It's not out of a sense of hatred; Leto has done much good for humanity during his rule.
  • There has been a lot of comparisons with Jedi when it comes to The Voice, a Compelling Voice that forces people to follow its commands much like the Jedi Mind Trick. Leto has stated it should be the other way around; the Dune series predates Star Wars by at least a decade. There are a lot of people demanding that he fights Luke Skywalker. Things got fluctuated due to Luke's story changing.
  • He has gotten word that other creatures of the ground are thinking about joining forces with him. The Graboids ae outside of his domain, but he welcomes them into his domain all the same. They are under his protection as long as they don't make too much of a scene outside their temple. All while he starts research to see if they have any relations to the Shai-Hulud.
  • While the most powerful of his kind, he has been difficult to gauge his alignment. He is one of the few deities in the Pantheon who have significant cults of Lawful Good, Lawful Neutral and Lawful Evil churches. This obviously puts a strain in organization for his clergy. It is this reason that he has decided not to align himself with any one faction, preferring to aid who seems like the most suitable choice.
  • Shulk is not a fan of his methods, even if it is for the good of humanity. It would be difficult to predict how a match between the two would go as both are excellent in predicting each others movements in combat.
  • He also uses his prediction powers to plan events millennia into the future. With this knowledge, he was able to help humanity expand in a way that it hasn't done in his world. He certainly rivals that of the best in the business. With that said, he merely keeps to his own business, helping out his own followers as well as humanity in general.
  • Leto himself is notoriously difficult to kill. He claimed to be a god long before the Pantheon has existed. But there is one weakness that he avoids. It is known that Sand Worms cannot survive water-clogged environments. As such, he makes sure not to venture in the House of Nature lest he gets trapped by evil water deities. The most prominent in the Pantheon is Rain, who would have no qualms killing Leto is it means to protect Kotal Khan.
  • Leto has heard rumors that Many would turn out to be an effective ruler in the future, even turning into a Sand Worm herself to amass immense power. He always suspected that Mandy would rule over her world. It also means he has an inkling on her true weakness. Yet he has no interest in telling anyone. Indeed, he is willing to let that future play out, over the objects of more freedom-minded deities.

  • Wary of: The Butcher, Naughty Bear, The Pyro
  • In many worlds, unicorns are seen as symbols of purity and of the wonders of nature, and the world where she came from was no exception. So wondrous were they that the miserable old king Haggar knew joy only from watching them, and so used a terrible red bull to capturer and selfishly hoard them all to himself. Only one of them remained free in an idyllic forest, until she heard from passerby huntsmen that she was the last unicorn. Unwilling to believe so, the creature set out to find the other members of her kind, gaining the companionship of Schmendrick, an utterly Inept Mage, and of Molly Grue, a disgruntled woman who had dreamed of seeing unicorns all of her life. Unfortunately, in an effort to save her from the red bull, Schmendrick ended up turning her into a human. This caused the massive problem of her losing herself as her inhuman mindset changed to that of a normal woman and as she developed a romance with Prince Lir, the son of Haggar himself. Yet eventually, that identity of Lady Amalthea had to be cast away in time to stare down the Red Bull and save her kind. And though she had succeeded on her journey, she had lost her love and found herself different from the other unicorns, as she was the only one to have known both love and remorse.
  • Sometime after her tale, the Unicorn happened to notice an odd path in her forest. She followed it and ended up in a truly strange place filled with disparate landscapes and odd characters called the Pantheon. She found herself in front of a court, who offered her the chance to represent her kind, due to her exploit of saving them. Though she was more than baffled by the offer, especially since she felt she had become much unlike a unicorn, her curiosity made her accept it. The Gods gave her the ability to change from unicorn to human and back, and to say she is ambivalent about that blessing would be the understatement of the century. Though there's a part of her that yearns for humanity, staying in this form tends to result in losing herself in 'Lady Amalthea'. So, in a way, this blessing only worsens the inner conflict that unicorns were never meant to feel.
    • Sometimes, she is visited by her old traveling companions, the now powerful magician Schmendrick and his wife Molly Grue. Though they were surprised at first by the existence of the Pantheon, they both accepted this as another sort of story and are more than happy that this allows them to see their friend more often. It is another story with Lir, the prince with which she fell in love as a human and who inherited his father's throne after the latter's death. Shortly before her ascension, she came to visit one last time at the end of another story, when he was an old king who had just received a mortal blow from a griffon. Though she had intended this to be the last time they would ever see each other, he found himself in the House of Life and Vitality as the young hero he always was inside, and then was guided towards her temple. Upon reaching the beautiful piece of wood, he happily offered to serve and protect her as her Herald, now that his duty as a king was over. Though the Unicorn was hesitant about it at first, as she was very unsure about if she could give him the love he gives her anymore, the two still seem to be truly happy with experiencing each other's company once more.
  • Upon hearing about the existence of plenty of other unicorns in the Pantheon, with a good number of them coming from some land called Equestria, she grew curious enough to meet them. She was greatly surprised by how different they were from her, though. Having the tail of a lion, legs of a deer, cloven feet, the fur of a goat, the neck of a llama, and a horn with the length of a short sword, Amalthea only looks like a horse from far away, but the equestrian Unicorns do look mostly like horned ponies. But the biggest difference by far between her and them is that they are mortals, with much more human mindsets as a result. Despite this, the more classical-looking unicorn did quickly befriend them, which was helped by the fact their rulers, Princess Celestia and Luna amongst them, were indeed immortal. Upon seeing her ethereal beauty, Rarity insisted on being given permission to make clothes that would accompany it. Though the Unicorn isn't comfortable while wearing clothes in her normal form, she did accept to goes to the seamstress for dresses for her human form, if it made the latter happy.
    • She grew more than a little interested when she learned that Twilight Sparkle and Sunset Shimmer had both turned into humans, especially in the latter since she had chosen to fully adopt humanity as her kind. Though the two noted that they had much fewer issues with their new forms than the full-blown identity issues she had, no doubt due to the fact that Equestrian ponies and humans are much closer in mentality. Still, Sunset is more than happy to try to help Amalthea when she's hesitantly trying out her human form.
    • The other Alicorn in the Pantheon, Princess Cadence, was aghast upon hearing that the unicorns from Amalthea's words don't naturally feel love. Upon asking the Unicorn about it, the Princess of Love only grew more sorrowful as she heard the story of a romance that wasn't meant to be. In fact, she was the one that guided Lir's soul towards his beloved, as she wanted to do at least one small thing. While the Unicorn really wishes that her opinion had been asked beforehand, but she admits that the act brought happiness to her. Though she's very unsure about the chances of romance rekindling between them, Cadence is just happy to have given them a chance to be happy together.
    • Of course, she also befriended other non-unicorn ponies. She and Fluttershy became friends because of their shared protection of wildlife critters, though the pegasus is very disturbed as to how Amalthea deals with protecting the animals. While the Pegasus pony will simply scare or talk down a dragon if it harms her forest, the unicorn will kill a dragon in hers.
  • Dovahkiin was impressed by her dragon killing power and tried to ask her if they could fight together. Amalthea said to him that she kills them only in self-defense or protecting the forest she lives in, and had very little interest in the endless search for heroism and combat that he indulges in, though she doesn't think ill of him as long as he doesn't try to hunt the animals within her forest.
  • For your information, she does not appreciate any jokes about her race having been kidnapped by an energy drink. Given how terrifying the beast was and how his terror indirectly Emotional Entity embodiment of rage, as he too takes the form of a monstrous red bull, and unlike the beast from his world would be quite happy to fight anyone. Somewhat ironically, the Butcher actually respects the Unicorn somewhat, as she is the first of her kind to have known true wrath from the temporary death of the prince she loved, and how it allowed her to defeat the Red Bull.
    • The Predator similarly values her as the only Unicorn to have known love and thought it had brought her much sorrow, she also recognizes that it brought her joy and thus reciprocates the Entity's respect. Her status as the only one of her kind to love also brought the attention of Carol Ferris, who proposed that she would make a fine recruit for the Star Sapphire. The unicorn strongly refused as she is very uncomfortable with the thought that the ring may change her personality. Though she does think that protecting love is a laudable objective.
  • The House of Knowledge thinks that since Amalthea's horn can cancel ANY magic, she could cancel Lord Tirek's draining powers, since he was defeated with a magic-based attack (even though he can drain magic). They don't want to test it out though, fearing the centaur might instead absorb her magic-canceling powers, making him a much more powerful foe than he already is. The Unicorn and, ironically, Tirek himself are very not keen on testing it out themselves, as they each fear the opposite result from each other.
  • One day, she noticed a hawk taking a rest on the branches of one of the trees of her forest whose behavior seemed a bit odd to her. She talked to him, and as it turned out, the bird was none other than the Animorph Tobias, who told her of how he was a human that ended up stuck in his current form, and how he progressively became one in nature as well before all but abandoned living as his old species. The Unicorn couldn't help but be reminded of her own experiences and seeing him as how she would have ended up if she chose to remain human. Upon being told of him, Tobias grew very interested as well, and the two sometimes talk about their truly odd feelings of change.
  • Needless to say, she was absolutely horrified from learning that Lord Voldemort drank the blood of a unicorn just to extend his life. And knowing more about him just make her disgust for the so-called Lord of Darkness even more, as he yearns for a miserable, immortal life without any acknowledgment towards the beauty of mortal life or the miracles that love can bring.
  • As stated before, she is a fierce protector of her domain and all of the animals within it against hunters and other intruders. As such, she has very little love for the nefarious who hunts far beyond what they need. One of her most recurring threats within the Pantheon has been Pokemon Hunter J, who very much wants to capture such an elusive creature as she. Though the Unicorn's might has been enough to drive her off, Amalthea still very much despises the monstrously evil woman and is wary of her intrusions.
    • Hircine, the Daedric Prince of The Hunt has long considered unicorns worthy targets and has sometimes sent mortals on a quest for their horns in exchange for a reward. He finds the fact that the Unicorn managed to send off such a terrible beast as the Red Bull one that makes her an even more attractive quary and has been toying with the idea of sometimes trying his luck. Amalthea herself, while admitting that the hunt that he represents is a part of nature, has herself no desire whatsoever to be slain for such petty reasons.
    • Other deities who has been forbidden entrance into her dwelling is Naughty Bear, after she heard about how often he murder part-bear, part-unicorn creatures known as Unibears and the Pyro for his out-of-control tendency to burn everything around him. The Mann Co. Mercenary actually adores the Unicorn as she is very much like the creatures in his sugary delusions, but she doesn't reciprocate at all.
  • Upon hearing about a member of an immortal and normally 'perfect' species being made to feel negative emotions such as wrath and regret, the wicked priest known as Kirei Kotomine grew curious and visited her forest to watch her from afar. When she noticed him, he was surprised to see that she did not look at him with fear or even disgust, but with simple disdain. Upon being asked for a reason, she answered that she could see what he really was: a pitiful and miserable man who knew joy from almost nothing in life, much like the old King Haggar. The only difference being that while the king's only joy was to hoard beautiful things, his is to break them. Kotomine chuckled and admitted that she was completely right before leaving.
  • As her friend Schmendrick was an Inept Mage when she first knew him, she was curious to learn about another that struggled with the magical arts in the form of Akko. Upon seeing the hard work the girl was putting in her life's passion, The Unicorn told her of her old companion, and how he eventually mastered his magical potential to truly become an archmage, in an attempt to give some comfort. The young witch was thankful for the words, though she noticed that the Unicorn was rather melancholic and said that she would like to cheer up her mood. A classmate of her, Diana Cavendish, was also interested in the Unicorn as it was the patron creature of her House. Upon learning of her story, the Cavendish heir agreed that turning an immortal creature into a human indeed sounded like a blunder Akko would make.
  • The Dark Elves from the Warhammer universe are infamous for their cruel slavery and the way they abuse their mounts as a way to force them into combat, but Pegasi Unicorns are an exception as they're a religious symbol for their races, with the Hag Queen Morathi in particular riding a dark pegasus in battle. Despite this reverence, Amalthea has nothing but scorn for them, as she finds their abuse of all other creatures as abhorrent, and their adoration of unicorns as a simple extension of their utter arrogance and desire to be associated with 'higher' creatures.

  • Domains: Basilisks, Paralyzing, Venom, Monsters
  • Interests: Babidi, Caesar Clown
  • Allies: Lord Voldemort (and to a lesser extent, Voldemort's allies), Lesale Deathbringer, The Lernean Hydra
  • Enemies: All heroic deities of the Harry Potter series (Harry Potter on top of the list), "half-bloods and muggle-born", Ho-oh, Oberyn Martell, Finn the Human, Samurai Jack, SCP-682, Akame, Medusa (Fate/Stay Night), Shinji Matou, Amalthea, Princess Celestial and Luna, Toph
  • Fears: The Weeping Angels, SCP-173, SCP-096, Apophis, Johnny Blaze, Ghatanathoa, Chanticleer
  • Feared by: Kaa
  • The basilisk. A serpentine beast first created by Herpo the Foul, born when a toad hatches a chicken egg. This monster was left by Salazar Slytherin in order to get rid of Muggleborns he felt were a threat. The creature waited for Slytherin's heir, which came in the form of his descendant Tom Marvolo Riddle aka Lord Voldemort. His first horcrux contained a living memory of his teenage self, who would try to use the Serpent of Slytherin to do his bidding and eliminate half-bloods and muggle-born students.
  • The Serpent of Slytherin tends to keep to herself, serving as the servant of Lord Voldemort. He was overjoyed to meet the basilisk in his modern form, but most frustrated learning her venom was used to destroy horcruxes. Ironically, Herpo the Foul was also the creator of the first horcrux. One of the other reasons the Serpent of Slytherin keeps to herself is not a single sentence she speaks doesn't involve murder, blood or killing. She's been crawling across the House of Magic to purge her master's enemies.
  • Her plan to exterminate those her master finds inferiors led to her paralyzing and killing Shinji Matou, which got the attention of Medusa. She doesn't miss him at all, but is wary of such a monster being loose. Her own petrifying sight would likely work on the Serpent of Slytherin, and vice versa. And it's not something the beast wants.
  • Frustrated at the fact that post-mortem her venom was used against her master. She has decided to go after anyone who would dare try to harvest her venom for their own ends, leading to her to hunt down Akame and Oberyn Martell. Ironically she's not fond of the Hall of Toxicity, although she is a point of interest for the gods there anyway. Caesar Clown would love to use her as the basis for a Devil Fruit as part of his own plans. He thinks he may have immunity to her paralyzing look in his ghost form, but as even ghosts are somewhat affected he's over-reaching himself.
  • Has a couple friends in the pantheon, for what's it worth - mainly Lesale Deathbringer and the Lernean Hydra. They're extremely toxic serpentine beings, and the closest creatures that Slytherin's Monster can understand. Interestingly for as much of a ferocious beast that she is, she is terrified of Apophis for being far more destructive and far worse a serpent than her. As the basilisk is The Dreaded, this speaks miles about the Hated One.
  • Doesn't care for Finn the Human, for being a heroic swordsman, or Jack for much of the same reason. She's worried their blades will take her out, as she left the mortal realm through the sword of Godric Gryffindor. The Serpent of Slytherin wants to avoid deities who specialize in Eye Scream as well, since that played a critical role in her defeat. Despises phoenixes too, as Fawkes the phoenix was the one who blinded her.
  • Babidi was interested in Slytherin's Monster. He doesn't need to make eye contact to brainwash people and she is plenty evil, so he hopes to have a powerful servant. However he also considers her master a more useful ally than rival, at least for now. Kaa wishes that he could hypnotize her, but given her Deadly Gaze this would be suicide and he fears the basilisk.
  • The deadly gaze of the basilisk doesn't work on SCP-173 or the Weeping Angels, what with them already being made of stone/stone-like material. And her venom has no effect either. She's basically screwed the moment she looks away from them, leading to her being terrified of them. SCP-096 and SCP-682 are affected, however the latter can adapt and the former is so determined being petrified won't stop it. She knows to try and stay away from the latter, but the former won't stop hunting her down and that terrifies her. Her own glare is impotent against the blind as well, so Toph can fight her off.
    • Speaking of her gaze, it's a well-established fact that staring at her eyes directly is fatal, and indirectly leads to Petrification. Some wonder just how broad her power is.
    • As ghosts are already dead, they get Petrified. While technically neither dead nor alive, Peeves isn't looking forward to meeting the Basilisk anytime soon.
    • Magically-conjured constructs like a D&D Wizard's Arcane Eye get dispelled instantly, though the Wizard themself is unaffected.
    • Cameras get broken as proven with one Colin Creevey. While that was an analog, it's assumed that digital surveillance would be similarly destroyed upon seeing the Basilisk, and those who see such footage "live" get Petrified, though those seeing recordings of her might not.
    • As for other special lenses (like thermal vision), "live" censoring, or some other form of literal cognition-changing vision (like Pyrovision), that has not been tested yet.
  • Got a serious taste of her own medicine when accidentally glancing at Ghatanathoa's horrific visage, mummifying her while still alive. Voldemort went out for unicorn blood to heal his monster. Slytherin's Monster has grown a fear of both the Great Old One, and Johnny Blaze. The latter is highly unlikely to be affected by her gaze, and his Death Glare would be devastating on her. Hilariously Harry Potter basilisks have a fear of rooster crowing as it is fatal for their kind, making Chanticleer one of her dire enemies.

    Tyranitar 
Tyranitar, Divine Representation of Those who Emulate Godzilla (The Armor Pokémon,Bangiras)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-248tyranitar_323.png
Mega Tyranitar 
  • Intermediate God (Greater God as Mega Tyranitar)
  • Symbol: The armor plate on its stomach
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Gender: Male
  • Ability: Sand Stream (both when in regular and Mega-evolved forms)
  • Moveset: Crunch, Stone Edge, Earthquake, Dragon Dance
  • Portfolio: Godzilla copies, Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon, insolent behavior, being a Rock- and Dark-type, overprotective parents, creating sandstorms wherever it goes, slow strength, having a ridiculously large movepool, the ability to use a Mega Stone
  • Domains: Earth, Destruction, Power, Defense, Strength
  • Followers: Tyrannomon, Electrogor, Reptar
  • Allies: Godzilla, Rodan, Tyrantrum, Groudon, Excadrill, Toph, Crixalis, Darunia, Ash, Bowser (when in a good mood)
  • Rivals: Metagross, Hydreigon, the Deviljho
  • Enemies: Team Rainbow Rocket, Hunter J King King Ghidorah, Volcarona, The House of Combat, anything specializing in one of its weaknesses, Rayquaza, SpaceGodzilla, Ozai, Relius Clover
  • Opposed by: Geb
  • Tyranitar, the Armor Pokemon. The final form of Larvitar, it is the rare "pseudo-legendary" of Johto and one of only two pseudo-legendaries not to be a dragon. It is so powerful that it can bring down a whole mountain to make its nest. The Pokemon is typically ferocious and destructive, however it has a sweet spot for its young.
  • Heavily influenced by the King of Monsters himself, in appearance, temperament and even some of the moves it can learn like Hyper Beam. Not that it uses said move much, being physically oriented. Whenever Godzilla is busy, Tyranitar fills in for him.
  • Few can stand being around Tyranitar, as he always brings a sandstorm with him. Some wished that he had Unnerve instead. Those who can resist it often use it to their advantage. As such, it often gets into fights with Rayquaza, who can nullify the sandstorm. He has no problems with Groudon and Kyogre, however.
  • Gaara ultimately picked Tyranitar as his partner due to the Sand Stream ability benefiting his power over sand. Toph, due to her ability to Earthbend, also came to like Tyranitar, as did Crixalis. However the House of Nature is generally wary of Tyranitar since even as a Larvitar it was able to eat a mountain, and its rampages lead to maps having to be re-arranged. Geb finds it particularly annoying that Tyranitar likes to eat and demolish his mountains.
  • It would like to remind people that it is not the same thing as Godzilla, but its still a terrible idea to use nuke against him. It also points out that it doesn't like to get wet and would rather avoid the Hall of Water & Moisture. Ironically it can be taught Surf, possibly referencing how Godzilla can traverse the sea.
  • Due to filling in for Godzilla, Tyranitar has had to tussle with both King Ghidorah and MechaGodzilla. While the sheer villainy of Ghidorah is something Tyranitar can't tolerate, he is on better terms with the Ghidorah-like Orochi and Pokemon Hydreigon. The two enjoy a rivalry and worthy foe relationship compared to the hatred between Godzilla and Ghidorah.
  • Sometimes hangs out with Tyrantrum, though most dragons don't care much for Tyranitar since "he's not a real dragon". Tyranitar prefers a rivalry with Metagross, as it is the other non-Dragon pseudo-legendary. And they both share a weakness to each other, so its a challenge for both. He has been found competing with the Deviljho, another Godzilla copy,
  • He and Volcarona despise each other, but the latter is more bitter. Tyranitar has amazing durability, on par with Greed, but what sets him back is his weakness to a lot of things, though he can brush off everything else. For this Stays FAR away from the House of Combat, for as its typing makes it surprisingly weak to being punched really hard.
  • One of the few it can trust with his young is Ash, due to him finding Larvitar and nursing it back to safety. Even if it is a Dark type, Tyranitar is a doting father. It loathes Relius Clover and Ozai for being the complete opposite, which Ozai finds rather problematic as Rock beats Fire. Due to being good parents and them being ferocious beasts, Tyranitar gets along with Bowser whenever he's not in full villain mode.

Lesser Gods

    The Faun 
The Faun, God of Fauns and Satyrs
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thefaun.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Faun's head decorating the entrance to his labyrinth
  • Alignment: Blue-and-Orange Morality / True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Fauns and Satyrs, The Fair Folk, looks like he's made of rotting wood, lives in a Mobile Maze, commands fairies and some animals, has many names which no human can pronounce, is very old, cannot be seen by non-believers, makes a cruel final test
  • Domains: Fauns, Mazes, Fairies, Tests
  • Heralds: His fairy servants
  • High Priestess: Elora
  • Superior: Guillermo del Toro
  • Allies: Jareth, Oberon, Titania and Puck, Lady Amalthea, The Human Child, Toriel, Asgore, Mole, Rat, Badger and Toad
  • Enemies: Nobuyuki Sugou
  • The Faun is a mysterious creature who guarded the depths of a labyrinth containing the last portal to the Underworld, a land of magic and fantasy. The labyrinth itself is located in Spain, which is an okay place to live in in 1944. The Faun had been waiting for a long time for Princess Moanna's return, who had left her fairy kingdom long ago in order to live in the human world. She had reincarnated as Ofelia, a young girl fascinated with fairy tales, and the Faun gave her three tests in order to prove her identity. The Faun oversaw Ofelia's progress, chiding her whenever she went astray and helping her in indirect ways. How much he cared for her success or failure is debatable, but Ofelia did fulfill all the conditions and they both went back to the Underworld, leaving the cruel human world behind.
  • Few realize this, but the Faun is actually one of the oldest deities in the Pantheon, in that he was one of the first around. Because of this, the circumstances of his ascension proper are lost to the sands of time, but it is known that he was absent a long time to fulfill his duty to see through Princess Moanna's return. When he was finally released from that, and after ascertaining that his lieges didn't require his services anymore, he returned to the Pantheon, surprising a lot of younger deities that the seat of Fauns and Satyrs had an occupant after all, whereas the Main House reprimanded him for being away so long without checking in, but otherwise didn't bat an eye.
  • His temple is the labyrinth that serves as an entry to his fairy kingdom home, the same one Ofelia/Moanna returned through. The labyrinth is capable of movement, though that's not something that happens to those who come in peace. It's easy to meet some very strange, almost offputting-looking fairies while navigating it... provided one's mind is open to the possibility, of course. Despite how creepy they look, they're unlikely to harm any visitors, though it's best to tread lightly if you're there to make any sort of dealing with the crafty Faun; that might blow up in your face.
  • Jareth was interested in there being another labyrinth in the Pantheon and visited it to see how it compared to his. It's certainly nowhere near as intricate, though it does its job of feeling mysterious and magical. Jareth feels natural sympathy for the Faun, as fellow tricksters from a fairy land parallel to the ignorant human world. Jareth still finds the Faun and his labyrinth to be quite drab though, and has tried advising him to glam it up. The Faun, not caring for such showiness, keeps waving Jareth's advice.
  • Being a high-ranking servant to the monarchs of a Fae land, the Faun is someone of interest to Oberon and Titania and enjoys their protection. Titania's more responsible and down-to-earth nature means the Faun respects her somewhat more than Oberon or his servant Puck, who the Faun doesn't understand why they find it so amusing to meddle in humans' love lives. He doesn't really care about that either way, but he really wishes Puck would stop visiting him just to annoy him and occasionally steal his fairies to wreak some havoc somewhere.
  • Sometimes likes to do research on human takes on fairies, if only to have a laugh at the inaccuracies and pointless flourishes. This is how he first heard about Alfheim Online, and also his first contact with the concept of video games. All-in-all, he regards the game's players waging a pretend war with each other while dressing as fairies with passive contempt. He is, however, aggressively disgusted with the game's former admin Nobuyuki Sugou, due to styling himself a fairy monarch while committing atrocious actions, plus being a huge coward underneath all his bravado. The Faun doesn't care much at all about Sugou's victims (random humans are nothing to him), he just hates Sugou for being a particularly despicable human and for tarnishing the image of the fairy monarch. One of the Faun's favorite pastimes is to use his fairies to troll Sugou, and then mockingly wonder why "King Oberon" won't send his subjects away.
  • No words can convey the depth of how much he doesn't care about humans' problems, which is best illustrated by the fact that he remained impassive in his labyrinth while fascists and the resistance were killing each other a short distance away. He was also pretty callous about Ofelia's family problems and berated her whenever she put them before her quest. This lack of empathy towards human matters is something familiar to Lady Amalthea, a unicorn who had taken her magical nature for granted before turning human and learning what life is like for them. With this in mind, Amalthea sometimes tries to convince the Faun not to look down on humanity's way of life. Although the Faun respects the opinion of someone of such great import as Lady Amalthea, he can't help but think of how Princess Moanna's own fascination with humans ended up backfiring and caused her much suffering until she returned to her kingdom. At best, the Faun thinks humanity is a crapshoot.
  • About the only human who has managed to impress the Faun in some way is Frisk, due to his steadfast pacifism when dealing with the monsters in the Underground, while fixing the mess created by the Underground's monarchs Asgore and Toriel. It probably also helps that Frisk chose to stay Underground and live with the monsters instead of going back to the human world, which the Faun thinks is only natural. Frisk himself is determined to be friends with the Faun much like how he's made friends with the Underground's inhabitants. The Faun is willing to give him a chance at it, though he plans to have his own fun by devising three trials for Frisk to pass. As for Asgore and Toriel, the Faun finds those two's actions to be rather unbecoming of their positions, though he's conscious of his own place and polite when meeting them face to face for the sake of good relations between their kingdoms.
    • Thanks to his fairies spying for him, the Faun is one of the few deities aware of what's going on with Flowey, though he keeps that information to himself. Whether it's because it doesn't matter to him or he thinks it could be of use in the future is unknown.
  • Despite representing Fauns and Satyrs, he doesn't feel like he has anything in common with the ones residing in the Pantheon, so for the most part he pays no attention to the likes of Philoctetes. The sentiment appears to be mutual. There's also Hircine, who, while not a faun or satyr himself, commands such creatures back in his world. As the Daedric Prince came to find out, the Faun will show him due respect when needed, but has no interest in submitting to the will of anyone besides his lieges, and would probably make his life difficult if he tried. Hircine decided to leave it be. As for Hircine's faun-like Daedra, the Faun can't help but pity them for their baffling fascination with humans and their mortality.
  • "Why would a poor faun like me lie to you?"

    Gilda 
Gilda, Goddess of Griffons (G, Grizelda)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gilda_vector_by_peachspices_d3jminl.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A griffon's feather
  • Theme Song: Gilda's Rage
  • Alignment: True Neutral leaning nowadays towards Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Discrimination toward all ponies, Half eagle, half lion, "All awesome", Being a bully, Hurtful pranks, Tomboyishness, talking radical in her debut but not in her next appearance, broken haughtiness, Vegetarian Carnivore, actually comparatively nicer than others of her kind, decent underneath that tough demeanor, actually rather nice and shy in her youth, saving her old friend's life
  • Domains: Racism, Jealousy, Pride, Smugness, Gryphons, Reformation
  • Envoy: Princess Skystar
  • Followers: Gryphomon, Buckbeak/Witherwings, Grimwing, the Ortho, Gwiffons, Megalogwiffs
  • Allies: None at this time, as she has yet to find any non-ponies who "click" well with her. Recently, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie, as much as she'd rather not admit it. Oh, and Rarity as well. There's also Rubeus Hagrid, due to one of her followers. And she evenutally made amends with Fluttershy.
  • Enemies: Jason Brody after he had the balls to try and hunt her for her hide, Agent 47, Roman Torchwick, Draco and Lucius Malfoy (for reasons related to Hagrid)
  • Opposed By: All equine deities and those who sympathize with them. Though she's been trying to fix that.
  • Pinkie Pie's been trying to get her to go to a proper party ever since she arrived.
  • Rainbow's not particularly happy that she's in the Pantheon, and neither are on speaking or seeing terms with each other. After Gilda saved her life though, they've slowly started to patch up their friendship and spread that virtue throughout Griffonstone.
    • As a result, Gilda can sometimes be seen selling griffon scones in her own temple or the House of Food.
  • Fluttershy now has reason to be afraid while visiting the House of Beasts since Gilda's here. While she was told about Gilda's change of heart, she's still scared of the griffon.
  • She is unsure if she will get along well with Revy due to sharing the same voice actress. Not after their arm-wrestling match.
  • Her hate for Agent 47 is because she heard a rumor that he offered to kill her (for free, no less!). She has a sneaky suspicion as to why he might want to do that, but doesn't dare attack Fluttershy (whom he had proposed this offer to, and whom she [correctly] suspects) due to all the other friends the "dweeb" now has in the Pantheon and how much less merciful they could be. Making up to Fluttershy so that she can convince him to stop is becoming a more and more convincing reason.
  • Once, sometime after Rainbow and Pinkie's visit to Griffonstone, Gilda requested Rarity's help in designing uniforms for Griffonstone's boffyball team.
  • Occasionally gets attacked by Roman Torchwick whenever he passes her by, and she is not happy about this.
  • Hagrid occasionally comes over to her temple to visit Buckbeak/Witherwings. Still trying to learn how to be nice, she often comes off as a non-romantic Tsundere whenever the giant visits. It doesn't help that his love for animals (naivety aside) reminds her of Fluttershy (whom Hagrid is naturally friends with). By extension, she doesn't like the Malfoys due to what they did to Hagrid's own griffon.
  • Was concerned when the Storm King attacked Equestria. Some guess she was worried about Rainbow and Pinkie, but she just claims her worry was for Griffonstone, which was still in no shape to hold off an invasion.
    • After those events, Gilda found herself receiving an envoy to also represent her kind: Princess Skystar, whose race fits under the trope Gilda represents, even though they're not of the same species (griffon to hippogriff) and the fact that she was introduced as a seapony, which was why she isn't ascended. There's also the somewhat awkward fact that the envoy is a princess while she's just a civilian, not that Skystar minds one bit.
  • Eventually, she got the opportunity for the apology to Fluttershy after another attack from Roman and his Hired Guns crippled her wingsnote  and she required immediate medical attention. At the time, Fluttershy was the only one in the area available to tend to her, and the griffon took the chance to say sorry for her behavior all those years ago. During the confession, after seeing the Pegasus ward off an opportunistic goon with the Stare, the griffon also managed to ask to have the free hit offer on her by Agent 47 removed. By the end of the day, while not the best of friends, Rainbow is now able to hang with both of them without things getting difficult.
    • Since then, she's had more comfortable visits with Hagrid and appreciated his company more.

    Pegasus 
Pegasus, the Divine Winged Horse
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pegasus_hercules.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His wings
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Cool Horse, Pegasus named "Pegasus", Silent Snarker, The Trickster, Giant Flyer
  • Domains: Flying, Horse
  • Followers: Pegasus ponies, Blackjack
  • Allies: Hercules, Zeus, Phil, Aladdin, Zeus, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Sora, Percy Jackson, Derpy Hooves, Caeda, Sumia, Cordelia, Hinoka, Palla, Catria, and Est, Perseus, Krypto, Heracles
  • Rivals: Gilda
  • Enemies: Hades, Jafar, Medusa
  • Wary of: Princess Cadance
  • Distrust: Kratos
  • This Pegasus was created by the King of Olympus, Zeus, as a birthday present to his son, Hercules. Many years later, he became one of his companions, as well as his steed.
  • It is believed that the Pegasus was born from the decapitated gorgon, Medusa, after she was slain by the hero Perseus. The steed, it is said, was likely born from Poseidon raping Medusa, making him his "son". (Pegasus was very uncomfortable by this idea.) This steed is ridden by the legendary hero, Bellerophon, who had slain the monster Chimera. As for Medusa, "Pegasus" was very frightened of the gorgon and she wasn't the gorgon that his friend, Hercules, befriended.
    • He also found Rider, whose true name is Medusa, and was rather horrified when she summoned another Pegasus by slitting her own throat and drawing the blood that formed the steed.
    • Perseus managed to ride one of the Pegasi, though there were some inconsistency with this assumption. First, he heard that the race were driven to extinction by Calibos. Second, the one Pegasus he rode was bigger, meaner, and black. And finally, he thought that there was one only and thought that it was birth from the body of Medusa after her head was cut off. Both of them gave up thinking about it, especially now that Perseus has his own Bellerophon reign.
  • Like Hercules, he was deceived by both Hades and Jafar into fighting Aladdin and his friends. Thankfully, they learned of their plans and stopped them, and he befriended the Magic Carpet.
  • He found many small Pegasus ponies and some Alicorns in the Pantheon. He is constantly being challenged by Rainbow Dash to see which one of the two is the fastest Pegasus in the Pantheon.
    • He is a bit wary of Princess Cadance, though, because he was once tricked by Pain and Panic when they disguised themselves as a pink Pegasus and lured him into a trap.
  • He heard there was a Pegasus that aided Kratos in his journey to the Island of Creation, but it was killed during the journey. "Pegasus" doesn't want to let the God of War ride him and make him go through dangerous voyages that would get himself killed.
  • He enjoys the company of Princess Caeda and other pegasus riders. He heard how there were other Pegasi in their home continent, where they were bred and raised to fight. They could be found in the parts of the continent ranging from the Kingdom of Macedon to the Kingdom of Hoshido.
  • He became a good friend of Percy Jackson, especially since he could appease him as the son of Poseidon, god of horses in the Greek pantheon. He also found out that Percy also befriended another Pegasus named Blackjack, but since the latter is not in the Pantheon, he allows Percy to ride him when needed.
  • Gilda doesn't like him and would sometimes give "Pegasus" a hard time. He knows that Hercules met a gryphon before, but he never truly met that gryphon himself.
  • When Sora returned to the Colosseum — and when Hades sent the Hydra to destroy the Colosseum and kill Hercules — he aided Sora in order to reach the creature and destroy it.
  • He thought that Heracles was his friend, Hercules, but it was the god-king of the horses instead. Still, the two horses get along just fine.
  • He is often compared to Krypto the Superdog, in being the animal sidekick to their heroic owners. In fact, the comparison of the two could be very noticable, much like with Hercules and Superman.

    Reisen Udongein Inaba 
Reisen Udongein Inaba, Goddess of Lunar Rabbits (Lunatic Moon Rabbit, Udonge, Suppository, Useless Little Bunny Only Good For Her Sex Appeal)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/th155reisen.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Two glowing red eyes superimposed over a full moon
  • Theme Song: Lunatic Eyes ~ Invisible Full Moon
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Lunar Rabbits, Illusions, Red Eyes, Long Hair, Mind Manipulation, Laser Eyes, Finger Guns, Looking Down on Humans
  • Domains: Bunnies, Lunacy, Magic
  • Masters: Eirin Yagokoro, Kaguya Houraisan
  • Followers: Kurousagi
  • Allies: Lelouch Vi Britannia, Bugs Bunny, Scott Summers, Hibari, Hoto Cocoa, Kafuu Chino, Tedeza Rize, Ujimatsu Chiya and Kirima Sharo, Tewi Inaba
  • Enemies: The Rabbit of Caerbannog, Springtrap
  • She is a former follower of Bugs Bunny, but as Bugs has occupied a lot of Houses already, she became the Goddess of Bunnies until being moved here.
  • Is very glad about her ascension. Rather sick of being the Butt-Monkey when she served Bugs, she threatened to use her Lunatic Red Eyes to drive the next person who mocks her insane. However, she quickly found out that her powers don't affect deities higher than her, so it was a bit of an empty threat. Her main everyday duty involve making rounds through every House, peddling her master's medicines.
    • However, Itachi Uchiha, took Reisen as a student in the art of genjutsu, and has stated that, even though she does not possess the Sharingan, she may, with enough training, be capable of using the Tsukuyomi note . Around the time when Itachi was placed in the Fallen, Reisen had develop her technique long enough to affect higher powered gods, but only if they push her that far.
    • She has also started training under Scott Summers in order to improve her ability to shoot danmaku (particularly lasers) out of her eyes. While her true strength is firing them from her Finger Gun, she is making some progress.
    • Recently, she have been known to use a technique similar that of Izanagi. Whether Itachi have taught her that is still in question.
  • Hong Meiling has been the only thing keeping her from being more abused. Fortunately for Reisen, her abuse started to slowly disappear so that even after Meiling became a goddess of Gate Guardians, she didn't have to worry about much.
  • She once had a nightmare about being skinned and boiled alive in saltwater, to be later eaten by Alice. Reisen now avoids her like the plague.
  • Was formerly the Goddess of Bunnies, but was moved out of that position. She then became the Goddess of Lunar Rabbits, ostensibly a position better suited for her.
    • However, her role switch did not go without problems. When Rabbit entered the Pantheon, The Rabbit of Caerbannog tried to kill him in order to become the God of Rabbits, thinking that Reisen was gone for good. However, Reisen blasted the Rabbit of Caerbannog into pieces before anything would happen.
  • Some time ago, a certain animatronic rabbit came up to her to scare her, causing her to blast him into oblivion. She threatened to do it again if he tried the same thing again.
  • Widely disliked among Touhou deities, among others, for running out on the Moon armies in the middle of a war. Her master and teacher, Eirin Yagokoro, knows quite a bit more about her defection than she lets on, but prefers to keep silent on that matter.
  • To the surprise of some gods, she seems to get along fine with Hibari. This is to the point that Hibari has even summoned Reisen to help her couple of times. Once Hibari told her the truth about her eyes, Reisen has started to train her on mastering the art of Mystic Eye. While Reisen is rather harsh to Hibari when she fails, the latter says that she doesn't mind the lecture.
  • Some hungrier gods once came to her asking whether she could make some mochi. As it turned out, she could, and since then, she occasionally makes some to send to the House of Food.
  • Reisen have mixed feelings about fighting against the moon recently. Considering she might have to fight against her former owner, that feeling is justified. It sure doesn't improve her image as a traitor, though.
    • Fortunately for her, not only did she avoid going to outright war against them, she also managed to save them.
  • Thank to Tewi, her temple has been safe from the threat of the Killer Rabbit. They still have a hostile relationship.
  • It should be noted that Reisen is starting to feel less like a Lunar Rabbit and more like a regular youkai rabbit, though many doubt that she will drop her title so easily.
