  • Opposes: Ramses, Moses, Lucifer
  • Opposed by: Geb
  • Without the sun, there'd be no light, no warmth, no life. Without Ra, there'd be no sun. The self-created Egyptian deity is the god of the sun, and protector of life on earth. Every night, he fights against Apophis to preserve the cosmos from ending, where he is swallowed and thus the sun goes out. Though Osiris is just as important in Ancient Egyptian religion, it is Ra who commands the Egyptian gods. Learning that other gods have become involved with the Trope Pantheon, Ra felt it time to enter the pantheon.
  • Is often involved with the god kings of other faiths. Him and Zeus are rivals, along with Arceus(though mainly Zeus). He's friendlier(though still competitive) with Amaterasu. The main Top God he's interested in is Odin. Like him, Odin is a champion of order and the safety of the world against chaos and destruction, though Odin's a bit more dickish about it. They've recently been seen brawling. When Zeus was assassinated, he worked with Athena and Mercury to find the culprit, with Neith assisting him. He opposed Hades due to taking over Olympus in the meanwhile and assassinating Zeus, and Ares for starting a conflict between the Egyptian and Greek gods while making it seem Anubis was responsible though was tricked by Hades as well.
  • Depending on the Writer, he is either the husband or father to Hathor/Sekhment, Bastet and Mut. He's definitively the father of Ma'at, Shu and Tefnut and sometimes Serket. Maybe both since they ARE Egyptian gods, but that's usually brought up in cattiness. Sometimes merged with Amun or Horus, and the gods Khnum, Kherpi and Raet-Tway have been described as aspects of him(though Raet-Tway is sometimes his daughter instead).
  • Has some issues with patrons of the Abrahamic faith, given their own history. Moses naturally has some issues with him and the Egyptian gods, as does Ra to him, but they've agreed to disagree. And much to Ramses' dissatisfaction, he doesn't approve of the pharaoh since Ra's no longer enemies with the God of Abraham. He's actually an ally with God(the one from God, the Devil and Bob) since he's a Nice Guy and opposes destruction like Ra(still have some issues working together though). Of course, he agrees with the three of them in hating YHVH, as He represents the incredible dickishness of Old Testament God and the desire to get rid of the competition.
    • Isn't fond of Lucifer, due to representing chaos while Ra is a force of order. Though he doesn't butt heads too often with Lucifer, as he deals mainly with destructive chaos and Lucifer opposes YHVH. Also royally pissed off at Caligula due to his attempt to move to Egypt and be venerated as a god there.
  • One of the most outspoken opponents of the GUAD. It has always been his duty to protect the world from the destroyer Apophis, and was enraged to learn that a whole organization of those who follow in its footsteps exist. On the plus side, he also learned that their leader's Arch-Enemy was none other than the Life Entity, a beacon of light and life just like himself. In addition, he regards Orochi with contempt due to being an insane, abominable serpent like his arch-enemy. Always ready to serve them some Vitamin Dnote . Trying to get the GUAG to focus on the GUAD rather than the GUAE, who he sees as the lesser threat to Destruction.
  • Him and Geb are on pretty bad terms, as he separated him from his beloved sister Nut; he feared Nut's children would overthrow him, so when she snuck off to have kids split the two apart. His response was basically "deal with it". That being said they're still under the same pantheon and kind of have to get along. He can be somewhat of a Jerkass God, but he's firmly on the side of life and it's more of carrying the Jerkass Ball than anything. For instance, he's regretted Hathor's violent side of Sekhment.
    • Worth noting he was poisoned to near-death by Isis, just so he could say tell him her true name and tremendous magic boost. He's not a jerk without reason.
  • When Isis dethroned him, he took various steps to stop Apophis having Khepri become/create a prison for Apophis, but ended up a senile old man and eventually went to stay at the Sunny Acres Assisted-Living Community without the other gods knowing. He thankfully god better thought thanks to the work of the Kane siblings. Later gave Carter Kane his crook and flail and even made him pharaoh at the House of Life, for execrating Apophis.
  • Has a number of skins available. Sometimes he wears a silver or solar eclipse get-up, sometimes he gets drunk with Roger the Alien and acts like an alien abducting things, sometimes he's even an android. And on one occasion he had an American get-up called "Ra'merica", in the form of a bald eagle man. This form likes to hang out with Captain America.
  • Though they don't seek to destroy the world, those who wish to take out the sun are naturally on his hit list. The Grand Duke of Owls was hopping mad to learn that yet another sun god, and a fellow bird nonetheless. Chernabog finds his light to be another problem he wants dealt with, as does Nightmare Moon. Zs'skayr hopes to kill Ra so as to shroud the world in darkness, and eliminating his weakness to the light.
  • Was most pleased to learn of Ancient Egyptian figures, who venerated him in the past. His favored worshipper is Yami Yugi, who kept the peace against chaos and destruction as pharaoh. It is he whom wielded the Winged Dragon of Ra, and now that he's ascended makes sure that the Egyptian God Cards don't fall into the wrong hands. One incarnation of his Horakhty incarnation was summoned to stop Zorc thanks to him fusing the Egyptian God Cards.
  • One of the oldest solar deities, many associated with the sun consider him an elder and defer to him. Those molded on the sun's image like Volcarona and Ho-oh seem him as a father figure, and Ra would claim he created them in his shape. He shares the position of "the greater light god" with Ezalor, and the two hope to form a group in the pantheon for solar figures. As Superman is powered by the yellow sun, he has been using his solar powers to power up the Man of Steel.
  • He, along with Odin and Vishnu, were the ones who slew the initial Eldritch Abomination that Aku spawned from. He later helped out Samurai Jack, and has made it clear he now seeks to take out Aku personally. He's also grateful towards Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase for helping out the Kane siblings in a crossover. And for that matter, he's remarkably similar to Azir, who is probably his Runeterra counterpart. The two often compete for who's the best god of the desert, usually reacting like this. None notice the irony.
  • No, he has no relation to the Goa'uld of the same name. And he's not a member of the Osirians(the alien race specifically, not the Osirian Pantheon). He did serve as an Ultimate Persona at one time though. This was before Nyarlathotep made his ploy, though now that he knows of the Crawling Chaos he intends to take out him due to trying to destroy mankind for a pointless bet.
  • Has been doing a few commercials as of late.

Intermediate Gods

    Global Occult Coalition 
The Global Occult Coalition, Divine U.N Superpower (GOC)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/goc.png
  • Intermediate Deity-level organization
  • Symbol: The picture as seen above
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: United Nations Is a Superpower, Fictional United Nations, Justified Extremism, Partially Rooted In Nazi Occult, Murder Is the Best Solution, Van Helsing Hate Crimes, Limits To What They Do And What They Destroy, It's Thaumatology, Not Magic, Blue-Collar Warlock
  • Domains: The United Nations, Anomalies And Their Destruction, Security, The Occult, Thaumatology
  • Special relationship with: The Illuminati
  • Allies: Hoss Delgado, Dib Membrane, The Emperor of Mankind, Doctor Strange, Jack and Maddie Fenton, The Hunter (Bloodborne), The Ghostbusters, Rudol von Stroheim
  • On speaking terms with: Pokémon in the Pantheon
  • Headbutting Heroes with: The Protectors Of The Plot Continuum
  • Rivals: The SCP Foundation, The Men In Black, The League of Explorers
  • Enemies: The various SCPs (especially SCP-166 for killing her mom), Red Skull, Millennium, The Pillar Men, Zim, Bill Cipher, SHOCKER, Trayzn, Majora (most of Magical Items for that matter), the Otherness Abominations sub-house, Nightmare
  • Opposes: The paranormal (though they aren't above using it), including the Houses of Magic, Otherness and Undead.
  • The SCP Foundation is not the only group that tries to tackle the anomalous and paranormal. The Global Occult Coalition, or GOC for short, was created after WWII by unifying various anomalous factions and occult groups. Head by the United Nations, they go under more aggressive doctrines and prefer the destruction of anomalies instead of containing them. Their relationship with the SCP Foundation has often fluctuates, but they are generally considered rivals.
  • They will usually try to destroy anything anomalous, but with non-hostile entities they are not above containment or diplomacy. Because of their opposition to the paranormal, they are often on bad terms with that side of the pantheon such as magic, the undead and otherly beings. That's not to say they won't use them for their own purposes, and have used or recruited anomalous things. Many were quick to point out the hypocrisy of this.
  • They are willing to work with Dr Stephen Strange. The Global Occult Coalition use the Blue-Collar Warlock, or "Type Blues", in their rank. And as Sorcerer Supreme, he is an acceptable defender of the Earth from magical and anomalous threats. He is wary of their more amoral side, though. Dib Membrane has been picked as a potential GOC given his eye for the paranormal and opposition to Zim(not that they think he's much of a threat, but Dib's enthusiasm helps).
  • Along with the SCP Foundation, the Global Occult Coalition are rivals towards both the Men in Black and The League of Explorers, because of their differing opinions on what should be done with the unusual and paranormal. They are more open working with the Protectors of the Plot Continuum as they regard Mary Sues as a sort of anomaly to terminate, though what they and the PPC see as a threat varies and sometimes they screw up the other's plans.
  • The Emperor of Mankind agrees with their policy, and is helping fund them along with the SCP Foundation in order to get rid of threats to humanity. The Ghostbusters, The Hunter and the Fentons want to help out them and have joined the GOC. While the paranormal entities weren't happy with this, they do admit their opposition of the anomalous is often justified. Hoss Delgado is also a member due to his shoot-first attitude to the supernatural.
  • Trazyn was utterly offended by their habit of destroying the anomalous, as they are much better served in his eyes being in his collection. This is something the GOC vehemently oppose and have been trying to raid his temple to destroy everything in his possession.
  • Objectively opposed to SHOCKER, being a malevolent organization that sends out various monsters, along with Nightmare just like the SCP Foundation sees the Living Dream. They spend a lot of time dealing with the various items in the House of Magical Artifacts, and while nobody is going to call them out for wanting to destroy Majora most there call them out for causing problems there, particularly due to the hypocrisy of using some of the items to help their cause.
  • They have roots in Nazi occult organizations, though are in no way a Nazi organization. They very much oppose the Red Skull due, asides from being detestably evil, his abuse of objects of cosmic power and the paranormal to advance his world conquest schemes. Millennium is even worse in that regard, actively embracing the monstrous. Not that some Nazis can't work with them, like Rudol Von Stroheim for having the sanity to work on destroying the Pillar Men rather than using them to help the Nazi cause.
  • The Illuminati is one of the 108 Member Organizations under the Global Occult Coalition. No, they aren't planning on a new world order...at least there. This makes a complicated relationship with the Illuminati in the pantheon, and only further confuses their goals and ambitions. The GOC has made it public that they refuse to associate with Bill Cipher in spite of his position, due to his ultimate chaotic ambitions. On the contrary, they've identified him as a level-4 threat to humanity, and consider stopping his plans for Weirdmageddon a top priority.
  • For what it's worth, they have agreed that no matter how paranormal Pokemon might be or seem, they are not a threat and won't terminate them. Some of the higher-end Pokemon might actually help them deal with dangerous anomalies.

    Repliforce 
General, Colonel and Iris, Triumvirate Gods of the Robot Republic (Repliforce)

  • Enemies: Sigma, Vile, Copy X, Dr. Weil, Lumine, Omega, Judge Dredd, Agent Smith, SKYNET, Count Dooku
  • Opposed by: The House of Justice
  • Conflicting Opinion from: Charlie Nash
  • Support: Ciel
  • Doctor Light's dream for a world of robots and humans in peace seemed to go wrong at every turn. The creation of the Reploids led to Mavericks, and the leader of their Hunters turned on them. Doctor Doppler's "Maverick cure" proved a placebo, and he became a pawn for Sigma. To fight against the Mavericks, Doctor Cain created a second peacekeeping unit; Repliforce. For years, they served in tandem with the Maverick Hunters. However a frame-up and accusations would lead the two organizations at each other's neck, and their own classification of Mavericks.
  • Repliforce has been labelled Mavericks, however they'd like to point out that they don't desire to harm humanity. Their dream is to found a nation for Reploids, free of human persecution. While a noble goal, they kind of botched it by refusing to answer to the Maverick Hunters out of pride and they did have a superweapon in space. In the pantheon, General has sworn not to make the same mistake and try to be more cautious in order to establish a Robot Republic. He's come to regret his actions, having sacrificed his life to stop their superweapon from firing.
    • They hate Sigma, due to framing them and fanning the flames of conflict between them and the Maverick Hunters.
  • In hopes of improving their order's image and keeping their more unsavory hunters in order, General has sided with Optimus Prime. He believes in the freedom of all sentient beings and gets their plight, however will make sure they follow by the rules. Proto Man and Galaxy Man have also tagged along since the idea of a world for robots is something they'd like, but given their loyalties to humanity it's a frayed alliance.
  • Asides from General, the two most important members of Repliforce are Colonel and Iris. Initially meant to be two halves of the ultimate battle android, the compatibility problems led to the formation of them as twin units. Colonel is aloof while Iris soft and passionate. Colonel is the fighter, while Iris helps is a Navigator. Their relationship with Zero is complicated, given Colonel is Zero's rival and Iris his love interest. When Zero killed Colonel, it drove Iris mad with grief and she merged with her brother's power, fighting against Zero who had to put her down. This haunts Zero to this day.
  • Zero was anxious to see Iris alive and well, given what had happened. Though the two forgave each other, they can't bear to continue their former relationship. Colonel didn't want the relationship to continue either, and was quick to point out he learned his cry of anguish was a ridiculous WAT AM I FIGHTING FOOORRR!! to drive a wrench into it. The two would've probably tried to re-kill each other for that if it wasn't for not wanting to repeat past mistakes and trying to keep Iris at peace of mind.
  • General has made it clear that while they're political Mavericks, Repliforce is not the same kind of Maverick as Sigma and his cronies. They aren't infected with a virus, and they don't want to destroy humanity. They vehemently oppose the likes of SKYNET and Lumine because they seek to not only exterminate humanity, but enslave machine kind as well. Omega isn't welcome either, and they consider Agent Smith's take on freedom to be deranged.
  • Bender was happy to learn of Repliforce's ambitions, as he often gets sick of how he feels robots are being treated as objects. Of course he's not exactly a trustworthy figure and does like to Kill All Humans, but since it's almost entirely bluster he can accept the Bending Unit. That, and he is interested in the legion of Robot Hell he got during Yivo's invasion. Repliforce has also opened their door to Bass, knowing he's sick of being bossed around by Doctor Wily.
  • Elpizo was very happy to learn that Repliforce had returned, and immediately tried to get membership. However at first they turned him down; oh sure, they completely get behind his cause, however when he's Drunk with Power things turn out...badly. However they do share a common enemy in Copy X, who does not accept the idea of independent reploids especially when Doctor Weil is on the scene. They will work together so long as a firm eye is kept on Elpizo.
  • While focused on the freedom of robots, Repliforce promotes anyone who wishes to be free from tyranny. They fully support Leia's rebellion against the evil Galactic Empire, and Jim Raynor's rebellion. They also can fully understand Neo's predicament of wanting humans to be free from machine oppression, though it's a reversal of what they had to deal with. However they oppose the truly evil revolutionaries likes Arcuturus Mengsk and Count Dooku.
  • The House of Justice isn't pleased with Repliforce's actions. They were supposed to enforce the law, after all, and "we were framed" isn't a defense for resisting arrest and starting a war. Judge Dredd is planning to deal with them.
  • After recently being rebuilt within the Pantheon, Rebellion Army commander Epsilon approached the Repliforce trio in short order due to his longstanding respect for their similar ambitions of Reploid independence and willingness to fight despite being declared political Mavericks. However, General was at first hesitant to trust Epsilon, and the black visionary treaded with caution in turn. They soon realized that both were being wary of manipulation by a nefarious figure, at which point things eased up and an alliance quickly blossomed. Colonel and Iris are since being mentored by Epsilon so Colonel can take questioning and Iris can deal with grief without going insane.
  • Similar to how he feels about Epsilon, Charlie Nash is torn between respecting Repliforce for being a military organization built around goals of freedom or mistrusting them for having been manipulated to serve the schemes of a corrupt megalomaniac.
  • The Repliforce themselves acknowledged that Doctor Weil is the shining example of how bad and oppressive humanity could be when compared with Reploids or other races, further boosting their antagonism to them and how they wish to usher a nation for Reploids, just as long as the likes of Weil will never come to existence again. Of course, not all humans are like that, but they couldn't be too careless. Fortunately for them, even their former enemies will put aside their differences whenever Weil is involved, he's just that bad. And after their incident with Sigma, the Repliforce has been more cautious in case Weil decided to manipulate them.
    • Of note, Iris is also terribly angered with the sight of Weil. She was just really distressed that Zero had to face that kind of monster after her departure.
  • Iris was last seen during the merging between worlds within the Cyber Space where she managed to give out some encouraging words to Zero, lifting a good portion of burden within him. Afterwards, Iris returned to the Pantheon satisfied with the burden she lifted from Zero, and she feels fine if Zero could move on. She took a look at Ciel and despite her human nature, even Iris acknowledged that she'd be a good partner for Zero. Her only regret was that she didn't get to tell Zero that directly when they met in Cyber Space.
  • Can also be found in the House of Technology.
