Overdeities

    Sarda 
Sarda, God of Magical Handwaving (The Wizard Who Did It, An Omnipotent Jackass, The Onion Kid)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sarda_the_sage.jpg
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: The Sardapedia
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, though he claims to be Jackass Neutral
  • Portfolio: Jerkass Reality Warper, Quickly Explaining Inconsistencies And Doing Things For The Lulz, Time Abyss, Badass Mustache, Experiences Time Differently, Slow-Burning Vengeance, You Can't Fight Fate, Hypocrite, Becomes So Much More Than A Hermit, God Complexes, Phlebotinum Overload, "My Will Be Done"
  • Domains: Magic, Power, Jackassery, Madness, Rage
  • Allies: Garland, Caius Ballad, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Calypso
  • Enemies: The Light Warriors, especially BLACK MAGE, White Mage, The actual Warrior of Light, Chaos and Cosmos, Tirek, Merged Zamasu, Doctor Doom, Lord English
  • Opposed by: Most responsible magic users, Gandalf, Australians
  • In the Circle Cave lies Sarda the Sage. Intelligent and incredibly ancient, he had the Light Warriors help to recover the Light Orbs supposedly to save the world from Chaos. In truth, he detests them, and set it up to screw with them and eventually take them down at their strongest. His power and age making him more than a little mad, Sarda mainly uses his power to screw with people for his amusement. Black Mage rightfully considers him an omnipotent jackass.
  • Known as "The Wizard Who Did It", because inconsistencies and questions can be answered with "Sarda did it". Not that most mind this explanation, since the universe he comes from runs on Rule of Funny anyway. Plus he mainly uses it to alleviate his boredom. Learning that Black Mage had entered the Trope Pantheon, he rewrote reality so that he had A Wizard Did It the whole time, with Doctor Strange getting Magical Gesture. Strange didn't care that much since he wasn't an example of A Wizard Did It anyway and needed the trope change.
  • Many in the House of Magic were wary towards him having so much power, some deciding to mail a complaint to the Court of The Gods. Sarda proceeded to change their complaint from "I really think someone like Sarda shouldn't have so much power" to "I really think someone like Sarda should have so much power", similar to what he's done with Black Mage. Gandalf made that complaint, believing he was an insult to wise, powerful wizards everywhere.
  • Doesn't care about the conflict between the different alliances, merely amusing himself, trolling others and getting back at the Light Warriors-sometimes all three. He occasionally entertains himself by sending members of the Grand United Alliance of Good he doesn't care for on a wild goose chase against the other alliances, which annoys everyone. He's shortened the hours in a day just to make people hurry up and has erased people and timelines through misuse of his powers.
  • Zamasu hates Sarda, believing he's both everything wrong with a mortal having god-like power and everything wrong with god-like power period. He responded to the mad Kai that "you're a delusional monster who's a blight on the multiverse". While Sarda is far from innocent and a potential threat, most conceded he's right and is the lesser of two evils compared to Zamasu.
  • There are some gods who enjoy his dicking around with reality, namely Mr. Mxyzptlk. Like him he's an omnipotent jackass who uses his phenomenal cosmic power to dick around. He likes the ways Calypso screws with people as well.
  • Those from the Final Fantasy multiverse were surprised to see how powerful he was, given they remember him as "Sadda", a simple sage who guides the Light Warriors to the Earth Orb. The actual Light Warrior shares his repulsion for the 8-bit Theater Light Warriors, however, believes him to be a great and terrible villain as well. Cosmos recognizes him as a major threat, however, he is fine working with her to oppose Chaos since the entity hijacked his body. Garland recognizes much of himself in the sage, due to their Start of Darkness being similar.
  • Earned the enmity of every god originating from Australia, when he dropped the continent on Black Mage. Doesn't pay them any mind, though.
  • Because of his immense power, he has little to fear from most gods. That being said, there are two gods he considers threatening. Victor Von Doom, while usually magnitudes weaker than him, has a tradition of hijacking phenomenal cosmic power. There is a lot more concern about Tirek, however. Due to his ability to absorb magic, including the Reality Warper Discord, Sarda stays as far away from him as possible. Nobody wants to know what Tirek would do with that power.
  • He is none other than the future Onion Kid, a multiple-orphaned Butt-Monkey due to Black Mage's actions. Because of this he rightfully despises BM, and hates Thief and Red Mage for their own evil and not trying to stop him (except Fighter-he's a casualty). While they argue he could've stopped what happened, his counter-argument is that he can't change the Stable Time Loop, which he tried. Working with Caius Ballad to try to change things again.
  • Given much of his existence is derived, and he was ultimately screwed over by one big Stable Time Loop, he hates Lord English for utilizing them to make people miserable. The fact that English is stronger than him makes it worse.
  • Is mad beyond any reason with White Mage's ascension, as she became the creator of his universe once Sarda sent her to the beginning of time (meaning he arrived too late to do so himself).

Greater Gods

    Rand al'Thor 
Rand al'Thor, God of Pseudo-Magic
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rand12.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Callandor
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolios: It Sucks to Be the Chosen One, The Anti-Nihilist, Cool Crown, Farm Boy (formerly), Good Parents, Honor Before Reason , How Do I Channel?, Destructive Savior, Katana User, Master of All, Master Swordsman, One-Man Army, Refusal of the Call, Took a Level in Badass, Unskilled, but Strong
  • Domains: Law, Good, Honor, Fire, Water
  • Allies: Colette Brunel, Neo, Harry Potter, Gandalf, Luke Skywalker, Harry Dresden
  • Enemies: The Malum Magia, Embryo
  • Rivals: Edward Elric
  • Conflicting Opinion: Maleficent
  • Rand felt that he never had a choice when he became the Dragon Reborn. Still, he made the most of his powers, eventually sealing away his world's Big Bad away, but at the cost of his powers. Turns out he had gained over control of The Pattern instead, earning him a title of the Pantheon.
  • To this day, mages around the pantheon wonder if the One Power is truly from a magical conduit or something else entirely. What truly matters to Rand is the ambiguous nature of these powers, allowing him to take the title of God of Pseudo-Magic. Make no mistake: he is by far one of the most powerful beings in the House of Magic. With his powers, he can even erase a being from existence with no chance of bringing said victim back.
  • Is trying to get the hang of his new-found powers. Even as a mortal he had trouble channeling his incredible abilities to something truly fearsome. Gandalf and Dumbledore have offered assistance to help them out, though they have faced some difficulty due to conflicting powers.
  • Quickly befriended Harry after building his temple. The two heroic protagonists share a bond having to deal with being chosen to defeat their Big Bads. Afterwards, he pledged his loyalty to the GUAG.
  • Could help but notice a few similarities with the Force. Especially sees some inspiration with Luke Skywalker, down to even losing one of their hands. Not that the similarities got in the way of their friendship; Rand sees him as an inspiration.
  • Does have a soft spot for women though. Rand strives to make sure he doesn't kill any woman he's forced to fight, no matter how evil she is. That puts him in trouble with evil sorceresses such as Bellatrix, Pagan and Taria who would want nothing more to use that to their advantage and pick him off.
    • Is intrigued with Maleficent's alternative form and hopes that it will eventually bring out the good in her. Unfortunately, it's a past that the Goddess of Scaly Transformations has been casting aside as far as possible.
  • Appreciates Neo's tribune, but he had never truly embraced being the chosen one. Thus he shares a closer bond with Collette. Both sympathize with being forced into their roles.
  • Completely opposes First Knight Richard Cypher, seeing his grandeur of remaking the Pantheon in his own image as incredibly deluded. He fears this could have been a path he'd take if put in the hands of less competent writers.
  • Got into a bit of trouble with Edward Elric when he commented on his height. Granted, his 6'6" frame would make most gods look short in comparison. Still didn't stop Elric from going ape shit on him; it took the entirety of the House of Magic to contain him. He holds a grudge on Rand to this day.
  • Given his Pseudo-magical powers, the House of Magic has wondered whether he can be a counter to Embryo's powers. Embryo himself wants to test that theory, hoping to gain yet another powerful minion to his ranks.
  • As much as he refuses to admit it, his feats have caught the interest of Harry Dresden. One doesn't kick the ass of 100,000 soldiers single-handedly without being labeled as a badass. Not to mention their mutual love of fire magic. And blowing things up. And blowing things up with fire.
  • Some gods are wary with his future well-being. It is a well known fact that male channelers of the One Power will eventually turn mad. There is no telling whether the same would happen to Rand when he is even more powerful. The various magical gods are keeping tabs on him to prevent this from happening. It is no secret that Melkor is plotting his complete descent into corruption.

Intermediate Gods

    Asuna Kagurazaka 
Asuna Kagurazaka, Goddess of Anti-Magic (Bellatrix Sauciata, The Princess of Dusk, Asuna Vesperina Theotanasia Entheofushia, Baka Red)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/asuna_kagurazaka.png
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: The two bells she wears in her hair, or the Einsis Exorcizans artifact.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Magic Canceling (duh), Swords that are too big, unrequited crushes on old men, Metal Fans of Doom, Chekhov's Armoury.
  • Domains: Magic, Combat, Dynamic Entries at absurd times.
  • High Priest: Mikan Sakura
  • Allies: Cloud Strife, Negi Springfield, Yue Ayase, Evangeline A.K. McDowell, Rias Gremory, Nagisa Furukawa, Cherry of the Saber Marionettes, Edward Elric, Ange
  • Enemies: Sauron
  • Is currently being taught in the ways of BFS wielding by Cloud.
  • Is teamed up with Negi and Yue. The other gods didn't mind, as they are usually good-natured, although after Evangeline has taken over their training, some gods are keeping an eye on them, just in case.
  • One of the biggest advantages of Asuna's Magic-Cancel ability is that it is actually selective; while magic meant to harm, disorient, obstruct, or otherwise be used against her is completely nullified, it has been proven that magic meant to help her, such as healing spells, allies' magic-based barriers & shields, and physical-enhancement magic, still works on her.
  • Has recently been seen in the presence of Kamijou Touma; there are whispered rumours that his Imagine Breaker is stronger than her Magic Cancel, though no one is certain exactly how a potential showdown would work. No one in the House of Magic wants to ask them about this either, in fear of them testing their limits on them. After all, Anti-Magic is a highly respected (and feared) power to the magically inclined.
    • These rumors may be put to a rest with Kamijou's ascension to God of Punching Mages.
  • After Negi introduced her to Rias, Asuna teamed up with her to create a partnership between the Ala Alba and the Occult Research Club, called the "Ala Arcana". Such partnership might or might have not played a role on the inclusion of the Chick Magnet Quartet into the GUAG.
  • When Edward Elric insisted that his alchemy is science, not magic, because it involves scientific knowledge, only for the house to rebut that the way it functions is basically magic, she was the one who agreed to the compromise between the two views. This was partly so that Ed would accept the seat, but also because she recognized that her Magic Cancel ability would have some trouble adapting to science-powered magic so there is a difference.
    • This was proven correct after she visited Ed and asked to practice using her ability on his alchemy and she could only reduce the effects of his attacks, not completely stop them. Since then she's taken to the House of Knowledge to try to understand alchemy and the elements better. Not much luck so far. She might ask Negi for some help about it soon…
    • …as in, around the same time as the creation of the House of Science. Due to this, Negi gave her the idea of petitioning to get the Fullmetal Alchemist into said House so she could meet with Ed there and he could teach her more freely. The Court of the Gods heard the request and, with Asuna's test as part of the evidence, ruled in Ed's favor and duplicated his seat in the Fields of Science sub-house.

    Edward Elric 
Edward "Ed" Elric, God of Alchemical Magic (Fullmetal Alchemist)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/edward_elric.png
  • Intermediate God (Greater God when fighting in peak condition)
  • Theme: "Uso"
  • Symbol: His coat and his mechanical limbs; alternatively, the flamel on the back of his coat.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Child Alchemist Soldiers with really horrid pasts, Teen Genius, Being Short and Irritable (and incredibly sensitive about it), Not Believing in Gods despite having met one and now being one himself
  • Domain: Alchemy, Magic, Science, Strategy, Knowledge
  • Followers: the Einzbern family, Kazuki Mutou, every single Atelier protagonist, the boy from Podunk, USA
  • Teachers: Izumi Curtis
  • Allies:
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Mayuri Kurosutchi, Dovahkiin, Tatsumaki, Kiritsugu Emiya (by proxy of the Einzbern family being his followers), Alucard
  • Distaff Counterpart: Rosette Christopher
  • Enemies: Dante of the Deep Forest, Lust the Lascivious, Pride the Arrogant, Envy the Jealous, Father Homunculus, Gluttony the Voracious, Führer King Bradley, Albert Wesker, Relius Clover, Ghetsis Harmonia, Yuuki Terumi, Ragyo Kiryuin, Master Xehanort, Basco ta Jolokia, Nyarlathotep, Mard Geer, Zeref, The Joker, Lucifer, Cinder Fall
  • Rivals: Rand al'Thor
  • When offered this seat, he went on a rant about how alchemy is science, not magic or miracles or anything like that, since he has to actually carefully study and understand the elements involved in order to be able to do anything. It was pointed out to him that clapping your hands and altering the world around you is basically magic. He took the seat on the condition that they would at least acknowledge that there was a science within it. Asuna Kagurazaka agreed to this.
  • Respects Vash, Kenshin, and Kanji. The former two for their views against killing others unless they've crossed the Moral Event Horizon, and the latter for loving his mother. They genuinely love their mamas. Kanji on the other hand, seems quite fond of Ed for some reason.
  • Now that his brother's back in his human form, he'll just serve justice although he isn't very noble.
  • Is utterly disgusted at the depravity of Relius Clover because the latter's actions are similar to Shou Tucker. Wesker's also high on his target list, considering he and Relius are allies, with the purpose of seeking perfection. Ghetsis is no different than the rest of his enemies.
    • This causes him to reluctantly strike an alliance of sorts with Mad Scientist Mayuri Kurosutchi, who somewhat respects his philosophy, but still doesn't think very highly of him.
    • Has a huge amount of contempt for Basco ta Jolokia for abusing the concept of Equivalent Exchange, sacrificing and betraying humans for his own benefit.
      • Is deeply disturbed by the fact that Ragyo Kiryuin has the same voice base as him.
  • It's not a good idea to pull Grand Theft Me on him. The last time he was on the receiving end of it, he destroyed them by turning himself into a Philosopher's Stone, making it backfire.
  • For some reason, Guile reminds him of his superior, Roy Mustang, due to having the same voice and also being a soldier. He does learn that Guile has a friend he lost as well, reminding him of another military buddy, Maes Hughes.
  • Now with the return of Homunculus (Father), Ed's alchemy will be more of use than before in case of a Homonculi attack. The one exception would be Greed, who he and Al are friends with (even though hearing his "I am Greed and I want the finer things" speeches has gotten beyond tedious).
    • This only became worse with the ascension of Dante, a sad and pathetic body-stealing lowlife who thinks she's worth much more than she really is and actually intended to seduce her timeline's version of Ed with the body of his friend Rosé.
  • Is rather uneasy with Dovakhiin due to the fact that the God of Dragonslaying keeps using Soul Gems so carelessly, knowing how they are so similar to Philosopher's Stones. He has confronted him about it, but Dovahkiin always defends his actions by claiming that they either contain the souls of bandits, wolves or giant rats. It does little to make Edward feel more comfortable about it.
  • Despite the fact that he claims that he never wore it, rumor has it that he once wore a military uniform one time. There's also rumors that he was called the Tea Alchemist at the time. Lol Ranger, for their own amusement, is attempting to make these rumors a reality.
  • Was offered a position of God of Artificial Limbs, but turned it down for reasons unknown. On another note, NEVER advise that he should be The God of Half Pints. Or The God of Vertically Challenged People.
    • Unfortunately for him, Tatsumaki loves teasing him about this despite being short and childish herself even as a full-blown adult. Rand al'Thor is another one who Ed's had to be restrained from attacking due to insensitive comments about his height.
  • Is a member of the Mighty Majors along with Alex Armstrong.
  • Due to the many evil gods that betray their family members to achieve some depraved goal, he is willing to be a member of Jin Kazama's anti-parental abuse club. However, since none of his parents abused him in his childhood, he is not a full-time member.
  • Is allies with Gust over their mutual skills at Alchemy however Gust's height for her age bugs Ed frequently.
  • He and his brother Alphonse are baffled at how Rias Gremory has the magical ability to change her breast size without giving up something in exchange. As a result, he, along with many other deities, in this house, is trying to investigate the cause of this in order to not look like a pervert.
  • Has recently gotten into a feud with Alucard due to the millions of souls he has absorbed, reminding Ed too much of Father. Their relationship has gotten better when Alucard made himself an enemy against the Homunculi.
  • The Joker has incurred Ed's wrath when the clown prince left a few messages pretending to be Ed's mother and Nina Tucker. To say Ed didn't find it funny would be an understatement.
  • Edward was left absolutely mortified after seeing a video that basically told him that the human transmutation recipe he and Al used in an attempt to revive their mother was completely wrong to begin with and had nothing to do with the soul.
  • Lucifer rocketed to the top of his Shit List when he caught wind of The Lab, having heard that some truly abhorrent abuses of science were occurring there. It quickly became apparent that the examples he had heard were merely the tip of the iceberg. To quote a pale and thouroughly shaken Mr. Elric:
    "Not a laboratory…a torture chamber…no 'breakthrough' is worth…not even the GUAL deserves this…!"
  • Became friends with Avatar Aang, initially getting along well due to the latter's friendly childish nature which reminds him of Alphonse. The bond became further entrenched when Aang and the Elrics came to recognize each other's tremendous value for life, refusing to kill if it's at all unnecessary and coming to the same realization he did about how the connection between one and all. He even accepts Aang's scolding about having attempted human transmutation especially in light of the above video, though he already learned plenty of lessons about that on his path to ascension.
  • Is also somewhat friendly with Aang's successor Korra. Though the two can butt heads when competing or disagreeing on something, they both respect each other and will come to the other's defense when faced with a common threat.
  • At some point Asuna, the one who agreed for the house that his alchemy could be called science-powered magic, approached him and asked to practice using her Anti-Magic ability against his alchemy. The result officially proved both sides' point—she could only somewhat minimize the effects of his alchemic attacks on her person and immediate area, but never fully cancel them out. Because of this, Asuna approached him about getting into the House of Science shortly after its creation, resulting in a meeting with the Court of the Gods which ultimately got his seat duplicated there.
  • He and Al were invited to Asami Sato's party to celebrate Korra gaining a new seat in the Pantheon. They brought along Winry and, at Al's insistence, Hohenheim, and were both scared stiff to see that Major General Armstrong was there and actually friends with Korra's police chief and Greed's new target of desire. He was also the one who deduced from the strange commentary surrounding Illyasviel von Einzbern and her friendship with Hercules that the Greatest Hero of Greece was in fact Illya's infamous scary giant Berserker. A funny moment took place when he tried to introduce his future wife to Korra's girlfriend Asami, only to discover that Winry had already met the Sato heiress, along with MANY other "mechanics" in the Pantheon.
    • Later, the Elric brothers stuck around for the Krew's post-party conversation with Greed. They provided additional context to Greed's re-tellings of the ordeal against Homunculus and his progeny, and whenever Greed almost talked his way into trouble with his "avaricious" persona Ed was there to snark it back down to size. One highlight was when he burst into laughter when he learned the chief's name was Lin, all too similar to Ling Yao. Ed was also the least surprised to hear Greed criticize how Lin handled breaking up with Tenzin, given his insistence on never telling lies, or talk about wanting to mentor Korra's earthbender friend Bolin, knowing how the man's history started with both Ling and Alphonse.
  • Has the absolute respect of the Emperor of Mankind, who considers him and Alphonse champions for of the talent, compassion, and overall promise of humanity.
  • Often teams up with the Italian Stallion to tell people who've been hurt that they have the ability to keep moving forward.
  • Was recently approached by Ajani Goldmane and Sailor Chibi Moon, willing to hear them out after noting that Ajani was the one who allowed Al to keep shifting between his body and his armor in the Pantheon without using human transmutation or the Philosopher's Stone. It turned out they wanted him to take part in a project to create a Soul fit for another mortal world, specifically the world of Dragon Ball. This project was in response to a threat within the timeline centered around the newly-awakened Android 21, and Ed's transmutation ability would make the Soul more naturally able to Body Surf through the Z-Fighters. Through the Soul's journey, Ed and others discovered that 21 had been turned into something with powers and a hunger she was never meant to have for the same reasons as he and Al's attempt to bring their mother back to life, causing him to feel saddened for 21 when she sacrificed herself to stop her evil persona.
    • He saw 21 in the Pantheon after Ajani and Chibiusa successfully got her ascended, when she went around thanking the people that helped with the Soul. They ended up talking science, and the way she was both innocent and intelligent made it almost like talking with Al as a girl. It was a very easy conversation and he's glad to call her a friend.
  • Was overjoyed to see the return of Maes Hughes in the Pantheon, especially with his family (and his pictures of them) getting to be his heralds. For a few minutes Ed didn't even care how ridiculous Maes' gushing over Elicia and Gracia was. He was completely unsurprised to see that the family themselves were in the man's temple, and happy to receive Hughes' compliment on how tall he's grown. Later, Winry took him and Alphonse to meet up with the Hughes family and let them try out Winry's apple pie. It was slightly different from Gracia's, but everyone agreed that it was delicious.
  • Ed once met a Huntsman from the world of Remnant who sounded a lot like him. Of course, their first meeting wasn’t great since he felt the need to comment on his stature, sending the man into a rage. After the initial hostilities, they calmed down around each other. Though, there was some weirdness lingering, since Edward misunderstood Qrow’s ability to turn into a bird as him being some kind of chimera. Once all the misunderstanding was cleared, the two became steadfast allies.
  • As elaborated above, his seat can also be found in the House of Science.

    Sorin Markov 
Sorin Markov, God of Blood Magic (Lord of Innistrad, Solemn Visitor, Grim Nemesis)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sorin_markov_705.jpg
  • Rank: Intermediate God (Greater God Pre-Mending)
  • Symbol: His sword, Parasite Blade
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Blood Magic, Friendly Neighborhood Vampire, The Hedonist, Mind Control
  • Domains: Vampirism, Angels, Black and White Mana
  • Followers: Archangel Avacyn, Vladimir, Blood Mages of Thedas, Grimoire Weiss, Skarlet
  • Allies: Rachel Alucard, Valvatorez, Alucard, Karin Maaka
  • Enemies: Dracula, Galactus, Azathoth
  • Ascended to the pantheon partially due to his experience as a Pre-Mending Planeswalker, a nearly omnipotent being capable of traveling between worlds. Even in his current Post-Mending state he is a powerful mage not to be taken lightly.
  • Was delighted to meet Rachel Alucard, since as he himself puts it: "Most of my kin can be short sighted savages. I'm delighted that such is not the case with her."
  • Dislikes both Azathoth and Galactus due to their similarities with The Eldrazi, which Sorin worked hard to imprison.
  • Has an Odd Friendship with Karin Maaka of the House of Emotion. Karin sees Sorin as she does her big brother Ren: well-meaning, if kind of grumpy. Sorin doesn't talk much about their interactions, but it is implied he feels much the same: Karin is endearing, if kind of annoying and whiny. He once offered to train her in Blood Magic, considering the un-vampire has so much to spare.
    • An early attempt didn't go well. Sorin started with the absolute basic of basics: controlling the blood itself telepathically. Karin, asked to puncture her thumb to give them some to work with, used one of her own fangs to do so. The result was...messy. After leaving for a moment to clean himself off, Sorin put her through her paces, to no avail: Karin's control extended to creating little bubbles on the surface of the blood, while she ended up with a pounding migraine. Sorin is disappointed, but confident she'll get better.
  • Is currently away from the Pantheon and dealing with unfinished business on his home plane of Innistrad.

Lesser Gods

    Kat (DmC: Devil May Cry) 
Kat, Goddess of Post Modern Magiks
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dmc_kat.png
  • Theme Song: Kat's Theme, Better Half
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbols: Several Stencils and Her Spray Cans
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Had A Demonic Stepdad (until she killed him), Can Wander In Limbo In Spirit Form, Cute/Hot Witch, Determinator, Form-Fitting Wardrobe, Morality Pet To Dante, Psychic Powers, Can Create Portals To Limbo, Rose-Haired Sweetie, Hyper-Competent Sidekick, Youthful Freckles
  • Domains: Witches, Mediums, The Resistance, Grafitti
  • Teachers: Illyana Rasputin/Magik, Zatanna Zatara (her primary mentors), Doctor Stephen Strange
  • Allies:
  • Tagging Rival: Beat
  • Enemy: Mundus, Jubileus and Queen Sheba, King Bradley, Dr. Wallace Breen, the entire Demons subhouse (save for Morrigan and Lilith Aensland)
  • Opposed by: Alexander Anderson, B.B. Hood, Kurtis Stryker, most of the evil deities in the House of Magic
  • Odd Friendship: Bigby Wolf and Snow White
  • On speaking terms with: Asura
  • A tortured soul from a world overrun by a demonic conspiracy, Kat served as an agent of a resistance group called The Order, commanded by the half-angel half-demon Nephilim called Vergil which sought to take down the demons led by a king called Mundus, who was known to humans as the banking philanthropist Kyle Ryder. She eventually found Dante, Vergil's brother, who ended up being their key to stopping Mundus… as well as Vergil himself once he revealed that his true goal was not to destroy Mundus's throne, but to take it for his own.
  • While overcoming the heartache of Vergil's betrayal, Kat had found her way into the Pantheon by accident. Using one of her Stencils and a forbidden spell that given to her inside a special spray paint can courtesy of a friendly demon called Phineas, she teleported into the Pantheon from Limbo City. Fortunately for Kat, her ascension had cleared.
  • There is a reason why Kat has come to the Pantheon; Illyana Rasputin, better known as Magik, and Zatanna Zatara, of who both were responsible for Kat's ascension. Having seen the potential in Kat, the two came up with a plan to enter Kat's world, reach Phineas, and have him give her that forbidden spell can. However, they were at an impasse over who should mentor Kat, until said woman in question came up with a solution; she would study under both, Magik for half a year, followed by Zatanna for the same amount of time. Both women agreed to the proposal.
  • The fortune-teller Rose encountered Kat one day and sensed her depressed emotional state. After setting her down to help her talk through what was affecting her and then reading into her destiny, Rose was able to tell Kat that she must find Dante and Vergil in the Pantheon to resolve her troubles, though warning her beforehand that these were not the same Dante and Vergil she knew in her time. Grateful for Rose's help, she would seek both brothers out. Dante and Vergil were also told beforehand that she comes from an alternate universe in which she knew their counterparts. And just as in her universe, the brothers found themselves on opposite sides, though with a strange sense of understanding between the two. Ironically enough, it's because of Kat that a de facto truce is in effect between Dante and Vergil when it comes to protecting her.
    • As she is a witch, she finds herself in the crosshairs of both Alexander Anderson and B.B. Hood. Fortunately, Kat's friendship with Dante and Vergil gives both Anderson and B.B. pause.
    • Through her ties with the original Dante and Vergil she's also become familiar with the first Mundus, who is far more imposing in an esoteric and religious way than the political banking overlord she was plagued by. While the flavor is different, the ubiquitous evil is still very much the same, and in some ways, she actually finds this Mundus scarier.
  • As Kat is also a graffiti artist, she has drawn the ire of Kurtis Stryker due to her spraypainting the walls of the Pantheon's numerous temples. What Stryker didn't know was that Kat had been commissioned to paint some of the temples, as she does good work. Some of the bad deities try and trick her into spraypainting some of her stencils onto their walls, but Kat sees through them.
    • Beat sees her as a chief rival when it comes to tagging. Even he can see that Kat is very talented.
  • Frank West's PERFECT EROTICA contest is heating up, as Kat, Magik and Zatanna Zatara have been scheduled for a photo shoot with the zombie-slaying reporter.
  • Aside from Dante and Vergil, Kat is also friends with Bigby Wolf and his wife, Snow White. For Bigby, Kat reminds him of Nerissa, while Snow, who is also descended from a line of witches alongside her sister, is giving Kat some pointers when she is not training under either Magik or Zatanna.
  • Ended up taking Dante to Limbo, where she met Trish. She got to see the face of the original Eva, while Dante got to see the parallel world she guided his counterpart through. The blonde's soul was trapped there after she got bisected in a Death Battle and they travelled there to get her out and take her to the House of Life and Death for resurrection.
  • Recently got Vergil away from Führer King Bradley, who she'd been worried would be a threat ever since Vergil accepted joining a team Bradley formed in hopes of learning how to get stronger. When he left that team after attaining the lessons he came for, Bradley tried to kill him, but she stepped in to help him escape. Vergil then allowed her to study from his memory of these lessons, involving a type of scientific magic called alchemy, to strengthen her own magic. She asked why. His response?
    "You're going to need all the strength you can have for the coming battles."
  • Because of how broken his body had become, Vergil would tell Kat to stay away from him for her own safety while he went back home to try to fix himself. In the process he made some very bad decisions which led to abject disaster in his hometown and saw him and Dante come to blows again, with only Nero's resolve keeping everyone alive. When he finally returned from the Pantheon after all this, she was worried that he'd undergone a downfall just like her former leader. To her surprising relief, he greeted her with a sincere apology for having lost his honor. She forgave him while imploring him never to do that again.
  • Shortly after this, Lady, a comrade of the original Dante, would ascend to the Pantheon. Kat wound up meeting both her and the Umbra Witch Bayonetta as they went out looking for her after first meeting each other. She related to Lady for her issues with demons and both women especially for having to kill their evil fathers, similar to how she had to put down her demonic stepfather. Though she quickly learned that Lady hated Vergil and neither his recent actions nor the betrayal of her time's Vergil had done him any favors with Bayonetta, she accepted it as something he would just have to deal with on his own.
  • Through Bayonetta she also learned about the true nature of the Angels of Paradiso and the Demons of Inferno. This did not surprise her much; angels were not a thing she saw a lot in her world, yet she knew they existed and most likely weren't wiped out because of the Nephilim brothers, so she figured they were at least more focused on preserving themselves than helping humanity. Jubileus and Queen Sheba's ascension was not something she greeted happily, which Bayonetta understood fully despite the Umbra Witches' connection to the latter.
  • Gets along very well with Yuna and Mithra, both very kind souls who prayed for her to heal from everything she's been through, which did help a little. Asura questions this friendship (especially for Mithra) due to the somewhat grittier aspects to Kat's appearance and powers, but is not opposed to it since Mithra claims to see something in Kat which could've made her a priestess or a saint in another life.
  • While doing some reading on magic in the library at the House of Knowledge, she came across Rinoa Heartilly. Rinoa quickly befriended her and, upon learning that she was a witch, got her to trade knowledge about their magic. The conversation gave her interesting ideas for offensive spells. Rydia met her once through Yuna and thinks Summon Magic might be an interesting idea for her to learn, but Kat doesn't seem too keen on the idea of commanding inhuman creatures. Doctor Strange has also assisted Magik and Zatanna by teaching her some of his spell circles, which she is currently working on stencils for.

  • One of the brightest mind in the Pantheon. Kokonoe's great mind and capabilities to combine the aspects of magic and technology is just weighed on by her unbridled hatred towards Terumi, for revenge... something that makes even other revenge-based Gods like Asura, Scorpion... or even Sasuke Uchiha himself either raise an eyebrow or cringe.
    • In fact, Sasuke thinks that if anyone's succeeding his old house, that'd be Kokonoe. It... kinda depends on how things go. Kokonoe doesn't seem to mind that placement.
  • Pays regular visits to the Food Pantheon to buy some sweets for her own mind. In spare time, she plays video games online together with Patchouli, as both usually refuse to get out of their respective house. Handheld online games felt good.
  • Often considered a Distaff Counterpart of Mayuri Kurotsuchi, albeit a bit Lighter and Softer. Both Kokonoe and Mayuri seem to bond over in sociopathic science, and at least Kokonoe doesn't seem to seek perfection much to piss him off.
  • Kokonoe was always Litchi Faye-Ling's master. However, she was thoroughly disgusted with how she allied with Terumi in the past no matter the reason, to the point that Kokonoe will have no qualms of destroying her, regardless if she repented or not.
  • Litchi's case aside, Kokonoe herself isn't a popular Goddess, as shown with Asura and the others above. Rachel Alucard, despite one who work a lot with her, constantly worry about her sanity. Hakumen disliked her tendency to just hide in her House instead of taking an active stance in battle. Even Duke Nukem, as much as the kinda guy he is, has expressed worry about what kind of things she's going to do with those nukes... But she still secured a place in the GUAG for the same reason as Mayuri: Her intelligence score is vital enough for the fights against evil.
    • However, due to the Ascension of Arakune, more of them have started to express thier disgust with her, as many point out that she could have saved Roy if she cared. All she said was "Piss off, I don't have time to concern myself with trivial matters. Taking down Terumi is more important than caring about what happened to the coffee boy." When pressed further, she also stated that it was her who kept Arakune existing and it was a hard job, so Litchi should have listened and been thankful to her instead of consistently disobeying what she said like an 'idiot'.
    • To that end and prove that she is on the right, she has managed to gather several other Gods for one goal: Kill Arakune, and then punish Litchi for being a desperate idiot that doesn't know when to quit and kept making herself a pawn to the forces of evil. This is the beginning of The Morality Civil War.
    • Kokonoe's antagonism towards Litchi for not helping her vanquish Terumi for her sake, or continuously telling her that she's a fool to continue trying to save Arakune or hunting her down in the Morality Civil War surprisingly garnered her oppositions just as many as admirers as many instead sided with Litchi. One of them, a climatologist named Mei-Ling Zhou, instead refused to acknowledge her achievements in science and likened her to a bully. On checking what Mei accomplished, this was Kokonoe's response.
    "Climate problem-solving? Pfft... yeah, like weather report will matter when Terumi ruins everything. Fine, go fangirl over my stupid student, just don't come crying to me when she backstabs you just for the sake of that blob."
  • It is said that she secretly laments not being made into a playable character yet. Asking her about it will only illicit a "Piss off." from her.
    • Now that Valkenhayn has ascended, she is looking to ask him again on any updates regarding the matter. Unfortunately, when it was announced that it was Terumi's other form that was made playable, she sulked off in her lab again before Valkenhayn could ever say "Maybe in the future...?" Then she heard that there won't be a DLC, causing her to scream off angrily. In the midst of her screaming, she was only stopped when Valkenhayn reported that they took back those words and she will be a DLC. Kokonoe then switches into a triumphant pseudo-Evil Laugh... which was abruptly transformed into a wail yet again when it turns out she became so overpowered mortals has been banning her in events.
  • Was responsible for Lambda's ascension. Tager has noted that her presence has made Kokonoe at least a little less fixated on revenge…
    • Eventually Tager lost his seat and had to stay at her temple as a Herald. While she doesn't mind this, she's looking for another seat to move Tager into in order to secure his place in the Pantheon proper.
  • Ricotta can often be found with Kokonoe due to their mutual use of Magitek and love of sweets.
  • Also has a spot in the House of Technology.
