  • 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 Space Garrison. 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. He's nominated The Four Heavenly Kings of the Alien Empara, Camilla, Chaos Darkness and Dark Zagi as his lieutenants. 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 most of them personally.
    • 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.
  • 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.
Stand for all eternity in the gaze of your fallen people!

    Randy Marsh 
Randy Marsh, God of Amazingly Embarrassing Dads
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/randy-marsh_8649.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Tegrity Farms Logo
  • Theme Song: Tegrity Farms
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Amazingly Embarrassing Parents, Manchildren, Breakout Characters, Author Avatars, Bumbling Dads, It's All About Me, Never Accepts Blame For His Actions, Large Hams, Becoming Gradually Dumber, Hypocrites, Takes Mundane Things Way Too Seriously, "Stan? Staaan?"
  • Domains: Parents, Idiocy, Embarrassment
  • Herald: Towlie (his business partner)
  • Special relationship with: Stan Marsh (his son)
  • Allies: Homer Simpson, Bender, President Garrison, Laine Cartman, Chef, Barney Gruble, Jay and Silent Bob, Snoop Dog
  • Enemies: The Guinea Creatures, Walter White
  • Opposed by: Every single good Disney deity, the House of Justice, Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Christie and Bonnie Plunkett
  • Mixed Relations: The New Kid
  • Banned from: The House of Sports and Magic
  • While it's common for kids to see their parents as embarrassing, Stan's dad, Randy Marsh, takes this idea to a whole new level. Despite starting out as one of the few somewhat level-headed adults in South Park, Randy regularly gets himself involved in all sorts of zany schemes and situations: all of which embarrass Stan to no end. From getting into drunken fights with other dads at his son's little league games, to saying a racial slur on national television, Randy's constant antics serve as a regular source of shame for Stan and his family. Seeing his long list of embarrassing misadventures, the gods deemed Randy to be a shoe-in for the title of Amazingly Embarrassing Parent.
  • Stan wouldn't be made aware of his father's ascension until one day when reports were floating around about a man high on drugs roundhouse kicking Officer Wiggum after he and other police officers attempted to arrest him for selling cocaine. Apparently, he was shouting "I thought this was America!" (despite it indeed not being America) as they forced him into a police car. Despite knowing immediately who this was, Stan went to the House of Crime just to be sure. Predictably, he was greeted by a now detained Randy, who nonchalantly greeted his son before immediately asking him to pay for bail. Stan just looked down and pinched the bridge of his nose before silently walking away.
  • It should be said that despite all of his faults, Randy, for the most part, isn't a bad parent and genuinely does care about his family above all. Granted, he is prone to prioritize his latest obsession over them, particularly Tegrity Farms.
  • He's currently fighting to legalize the sale of cocaine. As of now, the movement has made no progress, given the generally greater intelligence of the Pantheon's populace when compared to that of South Park's. This hasn't stopped him from constantly protesting outside of the House of Justice.
  • The New Kid had conflicting feelings about Randy's ascension. While he is still grateful for helping him breaking out of the Grey Aliens' ship, he's also still a bit uncomfortable around him after he drunkenly attacked him and Coon and Friends.
  • Being his former high priest and fellow embarrassing parent, Randy managed to become good drinking buddies with Homer Simpson. The two are often seeing getting hammered at Moe's Tavern along with fellow beer enthusiast Bender. These get togethers always lead to the trio getting into some sort of shenanigans.
  • He's often seen wandering outside of his temple absolutely hammered and generally making a fool of himself. Despite this, he vehemently denies that he's an alcoholic, earning him the ire of recovering alcoholics Christie and Blonnie Pluckett.
  • Takes pride in the massive shits he's able to take, to the point that he insisted on having his most legendary one be kept in the house of Treasures. Of course, the gods denied Randy's request for obvious reasons. Being Randy, he refused to take no for an answer and attempted to break into the house with his massive shit on hand to put on display. Unfortunately for him, other deities anticipated as much and had him apprehended by the police before he got far.
  • Given his business in selling quality marijuana, Randy has gained the approval of stoners such as Jay and Silent Bob, as well as Snoop Dog, all of whom openly endorsed Tegrity Farms' weed on more than one occasion.
  • Since he expanded Tegrity Farms into the cocaine market, Randy found himself a foe in Walter White. On top of being business rivals, Walter is absolutely insulted that a destructive idiot like Randy made it big in the drug industry, insisting that he only got as far as he did because of dumb luck and how stupid the people that populate his world are. Randy, meanwhile, has no idea why someone in the drug dealing business is so stressed out. That said, he tries to keep his distance, because even Randy thinks Walter is pretty fucked up.
  • Because of his tendency to get into drunken fights with fans of rival teams, Randy is forbidden from attending any sports sporting events held in the House of Sports. On a similar note, he's banned from the House of Magic after he showed off his "cock magic" to its residents.
  • Spider-Man wants nothing to do with Randy after he accidentally flooded a Broadway theater whilst donning the Spider-Man costume.
  • Ever since he viciously murdered his version of Winnie the Pooh, Randy earned the scorn of every good Disney deity in the Pantheon. Hell, even a few of the Disney villains were disgusted by Randy. Despite Randy's insistence that the Chinese government was to blame, since he only did it to get in their good graces for the sake of Tegrity Farms, he's forbidden from stepping within a 10 mile radius of Pooh or any other resident of 100 Acre Woods.
  • Despite his faults and reckless idiocy, Randy does care about his family above all else and will readily beat the crap out of anyone that speaks ill of them. Given his tendency to take things like these way too seriously, Stan avoids mentions any conflicts that he may have in the Pantheon, lest Randy gets involved and needlessly escalates things.

    Professor Utonium 
Professor Utonium, God of Fatherly Scientists (Professor, Drake Utonium, Powerprof)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/utonium.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A flask of Chemical X
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Those Eyebrows, Truly Single Father, Literal Fatherly Scientist, Great Parents(Though He Can Go A Bit Overboard), Standard '50s Father, Reasonable Leaders, Dislikes Cats, Team Dad, Nice Guy That You Don't Mess With, Scientist In Many Fields
  • Domains: Fathers, Science, Chemicals, Superheroes
  • High Priest: Dr. Ochanomizu
  • Followers: Professor Trevor "Broom" Bruttenholm, Dr. Noonien Yoong, Dr. Pietro Polendina
  • Allies: The Powerpuff Girls (his daughters), Nibbler, Mary Poppins, Carl and Ada Clover, Son Chichi, Yui, Astro Boy, Samurai Jack, Kotetsu T.Kaburagi, Krim Steinbelt
  • Friendly Rivalry with: Dr Thomas Light, Dexter
  • Good Counterpart to: Relius Clover
  • Opposes: All ascended cat and spider gods, the House of Crime
  • Opposed by: Homer Simpson
  • Professor Utonium is a brilliant scientist in the once crime-ridden city of Townsville. Hoping to bring some happiness and comfort into his life, he planned to create the perfect little girls using sugar, spice and everything else. An accidental dose of Chemical X resulted in the girls coming alive with superpowers, becoming the Powerpuff Girls. Though artificial creations, the Professor treats them like his biological daughters and loves them dearly. He and the Powerpuff Girls were glad to meet each other in the pantheon.
  • Back in the day, Mojo Jojo used to be a troublesome assistant chimp called Jojo. The two have a rather complicated relationship, and was the one who broke his vial of Chemical X which resulted in both the girls having powers and Mojo Jojo's super-intelligence. Because of this he's also the girls' "father", but it's only brought up to aggravate him.
  • His first name is unknown, so people usually refer to him by the Professor. According to one source his first name is Drake.
  • He is essentially the Good Counterpart to Relius Clover. The two are expert scientists and fathers, however while the Professor treats his creations as family, Relius sees his own family as tools for experimentation. He's expressed a disgust towards the truly single parent Father for his treatment of the Homunculi, and considers the fact they're aspects of himself a sign of immense self-loathing. In general, he isn't a fan of cruel parents or evil scientists. Being in the same house, he's put his focus on Dr Wily. The most positive thing he can say about the man is that he's got some odd fondness for his creations Bass and Zero, but it doesn't justify his actions or the psychopathic Omega.
  • There isn't a Mrs Utonium, something of which he often feels lonely about. He once dated Sedusa, who used him to stop the Powerpuff Girls' heroism. This experience has led him to go against gold diggers and horrible girlfriends like Lady Tremaine and Raynare.
  • The Professor is a very passionate and loving father, and is determined to raise his daughters the best he can. However, he can get rather overprotective of them, such as setting up elaborate situations to teach them morals. And the less said about his Dynamo mech, the better. Often spends time conversing with Son Chichi. Like Utonium, she can get a tad obsessive about protecting her incredibly powerful children and trying to raise them. Both are deeply respected by and deeply care for their kids, though. Has been trying to protect artificial kids out of his fatherly instincts, such as Yui and Astro Boy. He does sometimes cause trouble for Astro Boy however, though this is just because he's worried he might try to date one of his girls.
  • Looks an awful lot like Samurai Jack. He believes that the former is an ancestor of his, and has offered his assistance with the girls to stop Aku. Is a big fan of silent movies, pancakes and golf. He tries to avoid not getting too obsessed over golf anymore, as it led the Powerpuff Girls to steal a perfect set of clubs to help out. He's tried to be a superhero or fighter in his own right, but often needs his kids to save him.
  • Is a brilliant inventor, having developed technology such as time travel, body switching machines and containment fields. However, his greatest inventions were accidental or the result of some mistake, which has given him some angst. The girls have managed to make him feel better by pointing out numerous great inventions like penicillin were accidental in origin. He's making more progress working with fellow kind-hearted scientists and inventors. He has a Friendly Rivalry with both Dr Light and Dexter. With Dr Light, they're very similar in attitudes to their creations and kind fathers, but still wish to prove to one another who's the best. With Dexter, he's the other famous Cartoon Network scientist.
  • His experiences with Dick Hardly lead him to dislike people like Felix, and has warned Gharnef to back off after trying to steal his Chemical X. These experiences also lead him to try and protect Kotetsu T Kaburagi so he won't be exploited. Naturally, he's no fan of unscrupled scientists and inventors like Ryoma Sengoku.
  • Does not like cats. He was mind-controlled by one, and as such cannot trust them or let any near him. It's this distaste that broke his relationship to Ms Keane. At the very least, it led to him getting along with Nibbler who agrees most cats are shifty, devious creatures. He's terrified of spiders in any form, which leads him to steer clear of the House of Insects(and insists that since they're arachnids, they shouldn't be in that house). He's not sure whom to be more frightened of; Arachne, mother of spiders or Ungoliant, the abominable arachnid. The Powerpuff Girls are doing their best to hide the fact that the Overdeity Chakravartin has his Golden Spider Form.
  • In spite of his arachnophobia, even he thinks Billy's fear of spiders and treatment of his friendly spider son goes too far. Generally he doesn't like the boy due to his extreme stupidity. He's also accepting of Peter Parker due to being merely spider-themed rather than an actual spider.
  • Given he had the chemical knowledge to create the perfect little girls, one would imagine that he is a decent cook. And they're be right...unless it's about chili, which he cannot cook for his life. During the pantheon's chili cook off, Homer Simpson was on the scene to judge the participants. When he tried the Professors', Homer had to drink way more beer than before and passed out drunk, but not before declaring it "the worst chili of all time". He's sworn to get back at the Professor for the awful taste. He did manage to make a better chili next time with Chemical X, however the resultant methane it gained a life of its own and became homicidal. It took the Kid to save the day from an exceedingly ignoble end.
  • Tries to insist to the Powerpuff Girls he likes liver and onions, so as to get them to eat it. In truth he hates the stuff and wants to come off as more adult.
  • You can find Professor Utonium working in the House of Science.

    Henry VIII 
Henry the Eighth, Godly Head of the Heir Club for Men (Henry Tudor, Henry the Ate, Protector of the Faith)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/HenryVIII.jpg
An official portrait of the King
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_tudors_l_9.jpg
Henry as portrayed in The Tudors
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The House of Tudor symbol, combining a white and red rose
  • Theme Song: Many, but he's fond of the one from Tudors
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, though considers himself Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Historical Domain Character, The King's Issue, Serial Spouse, Love Ruins the Realm, Bloody Marriages, Well Done Daughter Guy, Spare to the Throne, Big Kings With Big Appetites, Formerly Fit, From Romantic and Passionate To Dour and Ruthless, Glory Seeker, Fiery Redhead, "Do as I say, not as I do"
  • Domains: Kingship, England, The Church, Marriages and Divorces, Lust and Passion, Food
  • Special relationship with: Queen Elizabeth the First of England (his daughter)
  • Allies: Robert Baratheon, Asia Argento, King Dedede, King Arthur
  • Vitriolic Best Buds with: William Shakespeare, Pacman
  • On good terms with: The House of Food
  • Enemies: Cersei Lannister, Smaug, Edmund E Blackadder, Nurgle, Typhus, Melisandre, Diaochan, The Queen of Hearts, Irene Adler, James Moriarty
  • Envies: Anyone with happy marriages or many male children
  • Opposes: Ebeneezer Scrooge, The Matsuno Sextuplets
  • Opposed by: Alexander Anderson
  • Additional relationship with: Amy Pond (ex-wifenote ), The Doctor (former son-in-law)
  • Henry is the younger son of his namesake Henry the Seventh, whom won the War of the Roses. Though second in place to his brother Arthur, the death of said brother would propel him into history as King Henry the Eighth. Unlike his miser father he was frugal, warm, romantic and sporty. However an infatuation with his mistress compounded by "the king's issue" of needing a prince would turn English politics and religion upside down, transforming him into one of the most notorious and dramatic kings the British Isles ever had.
  • Has always been vexed to produce an heir. Despite conceiving eleven children through three wives and a mistress, only four ever lived to grow up; two daughters, one an illegitimate son and one legitimate son. It is no exaggeration to say he reshaped English history to get the son he wanted, and to say the least he was infuriated upon learning Edward would die as at fifteen after his death. Learning about the success of his daughter Elizabeth has led him conflicted to say the least, commenting "it seems God intends to humble me, by making my greatest heir the daughter of that treacherous Anne."
    • His illegitimate son Henry Fitzroy may be a vampire, but he considers this nonsense.
  • He dislikes the Matsuno Sextuplets, as their parents managed to produce six sons.
  • Remarkably similar to Robert Baratheon; they both were strong and handsome yet became fat, have unhappy marriages/relationships, love to eat and have a cynic disposition. The two are good friends, and both like to complain about Cersei Lannister. The Tudor king is disdainful towards her due as her incestuous adultery reminds him of Anne Boleyn, whom he still insists was a cheating witch. He hates Melisandre even more due to being a witch and a pyromaniac fundamentalist, combining the worst perceived aspects of Boleyn and his daughter Mary.
    • He does share antagonism for Irene Adler with Cersei though, as he assumes she's Anne Boleyn. Also thinks James Moriarty is further proof of her scheming nature.
  • Often seen hanging out in the Houses of Leadership and Royalty, as one might expect. Being a fat, hungry king he's gotten along rather well with King Dedede. Learning that King Arthur was in the pantheon pleased him greatly, and he immediately went up to him to essentially fanboy over Arthur. Still hasn't gotten over how the other Arthur is a woman, though.
  • He's (in)famous for divorcing England from the Catholic Church and setting up his own Church of England, all to definitively annul his marriage with Catherine of Aragon and no longer be subject to the Holy See. Alexander Anderson is still not over it and remains pissed at his actions. He would tear down monasteries and strip them for resources, filling his coffers despite disliking his father's own miserly behavior. Made himself more unpopular by hiring the Sherrif of Nottingham for this task.
  • Has tried to loot the many valuables belonging to Smaug in order to fund his religious endeavors, but this hasn't gone anywhere as Smaug keeps killing his men
  • He has always had a big appetite, setting up lavish feasts-feasts he often helps plan out for the House of Food, of which they are greatful. He's even got into some friendly eating contests with Pac-Man. However he was able to balance it out with physical activity. Eventually numerous injuries and comfort eating, combined with horrible leg ulcers would cause him to let himself go. At his death, he was so fat he needed help to be moved around. To fit these maladies, he has gone to the House of Health and Diseases, paying Asia Argento a pretty penny to help with him. Naturally he's worried about Typhus and Nurgle.
  • He's rather friendly towards Rhaegar Targaryen, as they both ended up fundamentally changing the kingdom due to their love for another woman; Lyanna Stark and Anne Boleyn respectively. Rhaegar would rather not be associated with Henry, and is quick to point out that they're not that alike; he kept on loving Lyanna, while Henry would later grow tired and execute Anne.
  • At one point he accidentally married Amy Pond of all people, though this was quickly rectified and historical records ignore this. So do they forget that the Doctor in his tenth incarnation married his daughter. He's not sure what to think about either of them, but is at least glad that the Doctor is fond of the nation he rules.
  • Heard of his daughter's fondness for William Shakespeare, and requested a visit to the Globe Theater of his temple. Henry ended up enjoying his works, and is a recurring visitor. William is fine with this, but doesn't like to hang out with him that much.
  • Rather dissatisfied with Marge Simpson's retelling of his life, and comparison towards Homer. He executed two of his six wives, but he's not as much of a bluebeard as she states.
  • Once confused Superman with his old friend Charles Brandon, simply because they looked alike.

    Red Forman 
Reginald Albert "Red" Forman, God of Veteran Fathers
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/images4_1493.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His blue Corvette
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Threatening to ram his foot into others' rectums, fighting in two wars and retiring after three jobs to raise two kids, real men, Deadpan Snarker, Grumpy Old Man, The Comically Serious, nice moments among stern behavior, rarely being called "Reginald"
  • Domains: Fatherhood, Patriotism, Annoyance
  • High Priest: Cotton Hill
  • Allies: Kitty Forman (his wife), Dr. Cox
  • Enemies: Any god that annoys him
  • Complicated relationship: John Rambo
  • Fears: RoboCop
  • Worthy Opponent: The Janitor
  • Red Forman ascended after he retired from being a mere mortal. He now resides in his and Kitty's temple, watching the Packers from in his armchair, and tending to his new, divine Corvette.
  • Some people thought that Red would get along famously with Cranky Kong and to a lesser extent, Eustace Bagge. However, Red's reactions upon meeting them were respectively, "Why the hell is that monkey talking?" and calling Eustace a "dumbass farmer that can't grow anything". They did not take kindly to that, and the three old men have a bitter indifference to each other.
    • Hank Hill isn't entirely fond of Red either. They get along well enough, but the fact that his own father, Cotton, is Red's high priest doesn't sit well with Hank.
  • Red does get along with Dr. Cox due to their similar personalities and outlooks on life. Most gods made mental notes to leave the two of them alone, if they were together and in a bad mood.
    • Red also accompanies Dr. Cox when they go and drink with the Janitor. While Red and the Janitor get along, and he doesn't mind the Janitor's behavior towards Dr. Dorian, Red thinks the Janitor should "get up off [his] ass and get back to work" more often. Red was kidnapped and placed inside a water tower for one day, by the Janitor. After the former let him out, Red invited him over for a spaghetti dinner, the spaghetti contained gutter cleanings and dead moths. When the Janitor found out, it was agreed that they had found Worthy Opponents.
  • While this was only in a daydream, it has been shown that Red can be very fun to watch whenever he's intoxicated.
  • Is terrified of RoboCop, who has a grudge for some reason and nearly beat Red up the first time he saw him if not for the intervention of other deities.
  • Rambo mistook him for Robert Briggs and decided to talk to him. Red respects a fellow veteran and likes how Rambo is soft-spoken and wants peace, so they can be seen together at times, when Red's abrasive nature doesn't drive the other away.
