  • Gruff and ornery, Ironhide has been fighting the Great War, in all universes, for as long as he can remember. He suffers no fools, and from all the Autobot soldiers he's mentored over the years, trains no fools either. Ironhide's Seen It All, and as such is rarely fazed by anything but the deadliest of threats, and even then it's because he fears for the safety of his comrades. His bravery, strong sense of loyalty and belief that actions rather than empty rhetoric get results earned Ironhide a spot in Optimus Prime's inner circle. Whether as Prime's former teacher, head of the Senate Guard, or an overeager young bot, Ironhide has proven himself one of the toughest and most experienced Transformers in history, and a worthy addition to the Pantheon.
    • Ironhide was among the third wave of Autobots to join the fight, following on the heels of Arcee whose ascension was particularly problematic. Ironhide's own case before the Court of the Gods ended in disaster when his gun fired off by accidentARRNHAHHD . Out came a torrent of liquid nitrogen, acid, and mud that stained the walls of the inner courtroom for an hour until the cleanup crew arrived. In return for getting the hell out of there, Ironhide was ascended with the trope Abnormal Ammo for the "demonstration".
    • Ascending alongside him was Chromia, his longtime Distaff Counterpart (of sorts) who serves double duty as herald to Arcee. They may or may not be an item. In spite of their mutual similarities (being no-nonsense, tough-as-nails veterans with a fiercely protective streak), they insist on everything from being Platonic Life-Partners to having a once-romantic past that soured after a while. Nevertheless, Ironhide and Chromia are an effective battle pairing, often teaming up with Arcee and her own partner Cliffjumper.
    • His old friend and Spychanger Mirage (who is separate from the illusion artist Autobot of the same name) also joined him in the Pantheon. Usual battle tactic is to have Mirage ride on top of Ironhide and use his expert sniping skills to take down aerial targets like attacking Seekers.
    • Rounding out Ironhide's team is the tempestuous and glory-seeking Sideswipe. In contrast to Ironhide's relentless but measured combat style (even if he still itches for fights), Sideswipe has basically zero restraint if it means declaring himself victor over a fallen foe. Ironhide has taken it upon himself to personally mentor his trigger-happy junior, fearing that his vendetta against Decepticons like Demolishor will come at the expense of innocent civilians. Sideswipe often spurns Ironhide's rebukes, but the two really care for each other.
  • Ironhide's designation as the Autobot security officer and weapons specialist is a misnomer: he's a lot more than just Prime's personal bodyguard. As a long-time friend, sometimes rival, mentor and battle buddy of the former dock-worker/data clerk, Ironhide is among the rare breed of Autobot who openly questions and chides the seemingly untouchable Autobot leader. Optimus appreciates Ironhide's candour and Brutal Honesty, always takes his advice into account, and will risk life and limb for his old friend. Those who have nothing good to say about Prime try using Ironhide as a messenger; he growls at them to grow some lead and ask him themselves. He gets antsy whenever it's remarked that he sounds like Optimus if he lived in the deep South, though Smokescreen reminds him that with some vocal exercises and bodywork, he could reliably pass as a decoy if need be.
    • Leader-aspirant and young warrior Bumblebee describes Ironhide as "a big, red, ornery miracle". Befitting the nickname, Bumblebee and Hot Rod look up to the old bot as a reliable partner in tough times, especially when the less experienced bots under them are unprepared and out of options. Regardless of whatever form they are in, Ironhide was once annoyed at their mutual eagerness and naïvety, but has grown to respect them in their own right.
    • Conversely, he absolutely hates working with the Dinobots. Not only is Ironhide put off by their lack of discipline and love for wanton carnage, he's also enraged by Grimlock's (and at one point, successful) efforts to subvert Optimus's authority in his absence. Ironhide respects Grimlock somewhat for his battle prowess as long as he's kept on a tight leash, but even so can't stand Grimlock's arrogance when placed in a position of authority. He's quick to keep their pack occupied with worthy tasks, but otherwise leaves it to Bulkhead and other deities with Dumb Muscle to spare.
    • Ironhide may also be one of the few Autobots who has the privilege of surviving into the Beast Era, transforming into a giant, lumbering elephant with monstrous strength and temper to match. Even if records differ on the subject, Ironhide is just as easily relied upon by Optimus Primal as his original counterpart, and Primal easily considers Ironhide to be more than capable of accomplishing any task set before him, especially alongside his own Maximals.
  • As with all other Transformers in the Pantheon, Ironhide can switch between the forms of his various incarnations at will, most often transforming into a red Nissan Sunny-Vanette Coach SGL with an attached weapons platformARRNHAHHD  he can ride around in. He also has a variety of other forms to choose from, including the aforementioned elephant that can combine with Silverbolt and Prowl to form Magnaboss, a Ford F150 Flareside pickup truck with a garish cow paintjob and ox decals, and a heavily modified Mitsubishi Montero with rotating gun turret. Most favoured among these is his Bayformers design, a GMC Topkick pickup truck replete with two arm-mounted cannons and a classy Mid-Atlantic accent which he uses to great effect thinking up witty one-liners after busting Decepticons into scrapheap. He's also partial to his Animated form which can transmute itself into a near-indestructible alloy, literally forming an "iron hide" that serves well as a defense against punishing assaults and the occasional corrosive Cybertronian rain.
    • If pushed too far, Ironhide is forced into the appearance of his evil Shattered Glass self; a coldhearted, unempathetic field leader who is deeply loyal to the Shattered Glass counterpart of Optimus Prime, and got killed by the alternate Ultra Magnus for his trouble. Optimus takes care when tangling with this Ironhide, since he almost succumbs to the call of his alternate self whenever he gets too close for too long.
  • Ironhide is a veteran, and counts on his decades of experience in the constant crises that engulf the Pantheon. Even at ascension, very little surprised Ironhide. The overall picture of the situation grinds his gears somewhat however: four Alliances representing good, evil, law and chaos warring against one another for dominance. As a Transformer who led smaller Cybertronian tribes against the very Primes seeking to protect them with wishy-washy ideology (before he met Optimus), Ironhide scoffs at the idea of fighting for some noble ideal which realistically can never be attainedARRNHAHHD . To do so, he maintains, would require the victors to give up whatever makes them humane, creating a forced, unhappy Utopia. Quite a few Old Soldiers agree with Ironhide on this front, and he in turn respects them as his own brothers-in-arms.
    • The veterans Ironhide feels most comfortable around are Solid Snake, Flash Thompson and Master Chief. All grew into Consummate Professionals who share camaraderie with the myriad of beings in the Pantheon, and represent Ironhide at some stage in his life. Flash reminds Ironhide of his days as a hot-tempered tribal leader who rebelled against Optimus and the once-good Sentinel Prime before becoming a full-fledged Autobot, John-117 of when he was in his prime, tenaciously defending the dying Cybertron from the Decepticons with hope that the war would end, and Solid Snake of his more recent years, weary of war yet still fighting to protect the few Cybertronian lives he has beside him. At the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, Ironhide was scouted by Master Chief and Flash as a potential addition to the Alpha-Omega Force, but he respectfully declined.
    • Can't help but feel that Gunnery Sergeant Hartmann didn't register the "love" in tough love while training Marines. Even though he's hard on his young trainees, Ironhide always stopped short of outright tormenting them into becoming cold-blooded killers and instilled the values of empathy and freedom into them, just as Optimus would have wantedARRNHAHHD . In spite of their mutual respect, the gunnery sergeant vehemently disagrees with the "pile of alien metal" five times taller than him. He rebuts that his human Marines don't have the perks that Cybertronians have, so the Marines must harden to survive. They remain at loggerheads on the issue.
  • Despite being a veteran, Ironhide still harbours much distrust towards human militaries and mercenaries, given how a majority in his multiverse either want them off Earth, exterminated, or dismantled for scientific purposes. He is quick to point a gun at any human who claims ownership or superiority over his people, but isn't above working with such organizations when necessary, especially if they show him the proper respect first. Such an example occurred when Ironhide was sent on a Vortigaunt hunting mission with the Hazardous Environment Combat Unit, a U.S. Marine Corps special forces unit which quickly dispatched the aliens that were raiding an undersupplied GUAG outpost housing Autobot hatchlings. The soldiers of that particular team did show Ironhide some respect (even if they were excessively grumpy about it), so Ironhide acted the same in turn.
  • As one would expect from one of the oldest and battle-worn Autobots, even Ironhide feels the wear and tear at times. He puts up the front of being enthusiastic and lively in his own acerbic way, but the futility of the Great War on Cybertron coupled with his age has led Ironhide to consider retirement many times. Mind you, even in retirement, Ironhide still manages to pull off tremendous feats against those who think his guard is down. Being no stranger to the woes of age and its effects on performance, Ironhide has a special sympathy for allies who in their prime were legends but can't come to grips with losing their touch over time.
    • Surprisingly cordial with Master Roshi in spite of the latter's lecherous ways. Ironhide has plenty of gripes with that side of Roshi, but is sympathetic to the fact that neither can catch up to the powerhouses they fight alongside (Goku and Optimus Prime respectively). To that end, they frequently train and exchange war stories, Roshi placing particular emphasis on his fight against King Piccolo, who Ironhide opposes for cultivating a lawless, hellish Earth when the latter was its ruler, among his many other atrocities.
    • He's taken some tips from Batman's vehicles when it comes to picking (brief) alternate modes in the Pantheon. This ironically got the attention of Bruce's butler and former SAS operative Alfred Pennyworth. His combination of wit and refusal to take nonsense from anyone, even Batman himself, impressed Ironhide enough to offer him a ride to the Hall of Justice (the Justice League headquarters) one fine day. Alfred acceptedARRNHAHHD . Since then, most of their conversations hilariously take place in the heat of battle, when Alfred gets in a pinch transporting supplies to "Master Bruce", and has to ride shotgun in Ironhide's front seat.
  • If given a choice to take action immediately or do nothing and plan for the future, Ironhide prefers the former. This is why he prefers being low in the pecking order in spite of his leadership skills; his mind is not built for the long-term strategy that Optimus, Ultra Magnus, and Alpha Trion excel in. Nevertheless, he takes kindly to those who take decisive action against immediate threats like Barty Crouch Sr., even if such actions may be controversial and extreme to some. In contrast, he distances himself from those who deny threats exist for the sake of maintaining some status quo, like Cornelius Fudge.
  • Above all, Ironhide takes loyalty very, very seriously. If, like Optimus, he thinks you're worth fighting for, Ironhide will defend you and your cause like the immovable object that he is. Mind you, it took years of fighting together for the untouchable Optimus Prime to earn Ironhide's complete support, and he's a Prime. Ironhide even respects all but the most heinous of adversaries when they stick to their guns and fight for the cause they believe in with all their mightARRNHAHHD . In summation, Ironhide despises turncoats, traitors, and those who work only for themselves at the expense of innocents.
    • There exists a lot of Decepticons among these scumbags. Starscream in particular he rues not just for the penchant for betraying anyone and everyone he works for a shot at powerARRNHAHHD . Megatron isn't much better, given that he straight-up killed Ironhide in a tremendous sneak attack that also killed his comrades Ratchet, Prowl and Brawn.
    • Betrayal by literal backstabbing is a particularly sore spot for him, since in one instance he was literally corroded to death by a handy shot from Optimus's former mentor Sentinel Prime, a sadly anticlimactic end for such a brave and storied warrior. The suddenness of it all still gives Ironhide misgivings about the Big Goods of the Pantheon, a healthy paranoia that fuels his objectivity and insistence on holding everybody accountable for their decisions, including Optimus. Ironhide has no intention of letting even the purest of deities attain elevated status over their subordinates, a highly praised quality among the equalist members of the GUAG.
    • Combats the alien race of Slugs at every opportunity. With the race's proclivity to betrayal and manipulation, he admits he has some prejudice towards them, what with how many soldiers around him fall to their sadistic attacks. He remembers when they once drained the oxygen in the transport ship he was in, killing all the oxygen-breathing organics inside.
    • Something else Ironhide hates is wanton violence. Grimgor Ironhide's endless bloodlust disturbs Ironhide enough for him to seek out the Orc in battle, out of a desire to kill the warrior before he puts an end to another helpless army that falls before Grimgor's wrath. Ironhide is wary of being compared with Grimgor due to a false alarm before his ascension where the Autobots travelled to Black Crag, thinking that he had ascended before getting Grimgor and his WAAAAGH-mongas instead.
  • Hates being called the Tooth Fairy by everyone who isn't a curious little girl. Or Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, whose litany of street knowledge from his various roles proves very useful to Ironhide when he needs it.
  • As with his fellow Cybertronians, Ironhide has information about him stored away in the Pantheonic archives for other Gods to view and better understand him.
"Stop talking, tighten your shock absorbers, and let's move out!"

    Noel Vermillion 
Noel Vermillion, Goddess of Short-Range Guns (Mu-12, The Eye of the Azure, Successor of the Azure, The Sword of the Godslayer, Kusanagi, Lacking Lady, Noellers, Saya, Slayer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/noel_vermillion_cf_0.png
Mu- 12 
  • Intermediate Goddess (Greater Goddess as Mu-12)
  • Symbol: Her Nox Nyctores Bolverk crossed her emblem (Noel); her Nox Nyctores, Lux Sanctus: Murakumo on her emblem (Mu-12)
  • Theme Songs: Bullet Dance, Sword of Doom II when she transforms into Mu-12
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (both), Chaotic Evil when brainwashed by Hazama (Mu-12 only).
  • Portfolio: Girls with Guns, Using Firearms in Close Quarters Combat, Gun Kata, Sexy Backless Outfit, Small Breasts For Someone Her Physical Age (And Is Ashamed About It), Moe, The Woobie, Artificial Human, Clones Are People, Too, Living MacGuffin, Nice Girl, Incredibly Bad Cook
  • Domain: Appearance, Law, Guns
  • Allies:
  • Not so different from: Miku Kohinata
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Jin Kisaragi (Her OTHER brother) (He hates her guts), Kaguya Nanbu (thinks she's being too "insensitive" about Noel's figures)
  • Commonality Connection with: Etna
  • Enemies: Yuuki Terumi, Revy (opposes her rough methods of how to use guns), Vergil Sparda (scares her shitless), Justice, Cell (they make her think of Nu-13), Jinx, Nu-13 (her younger sister), Monaca Towa
  • Opposes: DiDi Chastel (one sided)
  • Pitied by: Vermouth
  • Originally the Goddess of Small Breasts, she requested her trope to be changed to be less... insulting. She eventually got her request.
  • Noel's weapons are Arcus Diabolus: Bolverk a pair of giant handguns which can attack any desired locations regardless of obstacles, as well as transform into other ranged weapons. However, Noel mainly uses a Gun Kata-like fighting style, mainly using muzzle blasts for extra impact and sparingly uses her weapons at long range.
  • For some reason, at her ascension, Jin did not really take it well and just left off with mutters and curses. Luckily for him, she has new friends, so they have very little reason to be together.
  • Is very happy due to the efforts of GUAG to rescue Litchi. Which means, she can freely cuddle with her Panda again... The rescue of Tsubaki also made her feel better, especially when compounded with the arrival of Makoto Nanaya.
  • Quite often, she trains in gun-fighting with Rushuna Tendou. They're good friends despite Noel being rather insecure about her figure when compared to Rushuna... especially when Rushuna gives her a Cooldown Hug in her Marshmallow Hell, in case Noel performs poorly in training. Which is often. The class was later joined by Mami Tomoe, whose mammies make Noel jealous too. Then again, whose breasts don't make Noel jealous?
    • At one point, the amount of boobage got the best of her, forcing Noel to take a break, and after hearing someone who sounded like Ragna (but with an Angry Black Man accent), Noel investigated and ended up bumping into Lucian, just shooting some damned undeads. Noel was impressed at his gunplay and asked if she could learn something, but it turns out, Lucian was extremely harsh in the training, not even relenting even as much as Noel cried and being reminded that her meekness is going to doom her. However, she eventually admitted that Lucian has a point, and thus she started to improve, finally changing Lucian's opinion to her, and both now have mutual respect for each other. With that much gun training, Noel felt... rather confident, more than usual.
  • Has found herself as one of the few deities who aren't willing to date Didi, who is always attempting to court Noel - she had a great experience with another flat-chested blonde - but the fighter is downright intimidated by the Canadian's impressive figure.
  • She was once caught on camera in the House of Commerce, picking out new threads with her best bud Makoto. While the new outfit is certainly bolder than the old one, the paparazzi responsible wishes to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution.
    • Along the way, news has it that she has purged her former Superpowered Evil Side Mu-12... and made it a part of her.
    • However, she's NOT allowed anywhere near the House of Food since her cooking was so extremely lethal that unless you're Pac-Man or Tabane Shinonono, eating it will cause you to die faster than her bullets could make you, even if you're an Eldritch Abomination or an Uber God like Asura. This doesn't please Noel, of course.
  • Likes to hear music produced by the 765 Pro Idols, especially by Chihaya Kisaragi, because she reminds her so much of Tsubaki. Not to mention, when they meet, Noel and Chihaya are able to bond together over the flatness of their chests.
    • In fact, both of them have formed the League of Flat Chests. Despite all of this, some of the big-breasted women either poke fun or don't care about them at all. Jinx is excluded for obvious reasons. Unfortunately, despite her title, Noel had her leadership position usurped by force by Etna. At the very least, she didn't seem to mind that one very much. She recently just invited her new friend, Lux, to the group.
  • Had an unfortunate encounter with Vergil upon his ascension. Thinking that he was up to no good, Noel tried putting him down. But not only did he utterly curb-stomp Noel, he bemeaned her usage of guns, combined with her weakness and derided her as a weak and unworthy addition of the Pantheon. Noel couldn't stop crying after that encounter, locking herself in her house for days. It took a large amount of comfort from both Makoto and Tsubaki to get her back to her normal self.
    • Recently found an ally in Raiden after Vergil's beatdown. The two find similarities in the fact that they're weapons of war and have sworn to protect each other if needed.
  • The event about her defeat at Vergil's hands cements the fact that Noel is one of Pantheon's biggest cuties (even if Chiyo-chan held the throne), mess with her and you will have several other deities gunning you down. Unfortunately, that stuff was used by Jinx to insult Noel about the flatness of her breasts, causing Noel to do massive property casualties trying to shoot down Jinx to no avail. Only a matter of time until the likes of Raiden or Makoto would put Jinx into their shit lists for harming Noel...
  • Has recently, at the suggestion of Mami, formed a friendship with Coyote Starrk, who has taken upon himself, at Mami's request, to take Noel's Gun Kata to the next level. Something about her Mu-12 form and her own version of Cero Metralleta...
  • Cell scares the crap out of her with his fluctuating personality, due to the semblance to Nu, and he also once attempted to absorb her in order to ascend to a level beyond even perfection. He was only stopped when she went Mu-12 on him, and when Rushuna, Mami, Stark, Makoto, Tsubaki, and Raiden all got together with her to beat the shit out of him.
  • Has recently reformed The 3 Stooges of Torifune, a comedy troupe Noel, Tsubaki and Makoto formed during their school days.
  • Has also spent some time around the newly ascended Lambda, attempting to bond with her. Although they started on a very rocky start, not helped by Lambda's usual attitude, Makoto's help always ensured their time together is... interesting, to say the least.
  • Has met the recently ascended Miku Kohinata. Saddened to learn that Miku went through a similar situation she did with Terumi. Because of this, Noel has offered Miku to practice on their power as a means to master the latter's power and her own. She's also surprised to learn that the fighting style of her Symphogear is similar to that of the Murakumo Units (herself included).
    • This greatly worries Hibiki as she doesn't want Miku to fight anybody or get hurt anymore.
  • One of Noel’s adventures in the mortal plane revealed that her soul was actually half of the soul of Saya, Ragna and Jin's long-lost sister; the other half belonged to the Goddess of Death, Hades: Izanami. After absorbing Izanami’s soul, Noel regained Saya's memories and personality and became Saya in all but name. Still, this is all very confusing for her and she doesn’t like being called Saya, so it’s recommended to just call her "Noel".
    • As you can expect, this has strengthened her bond with Ragna, but whether or not this will mend bridges between her and Jin remains to be seen.
  • After she crossed fate, she got along with the likes of Naoto Shirogane, Hyde Kido, and Yang Xiao Long as she fought alongside them during battles with them interacting each other.

Lesser Gods

    Amélie Lacroix/Widowmaker 
Amélie Lacroix (née Guillard), Goddess of Cold Snipers (Widowmaker, Widow, The Countess, Windowmaker, Windowbreaker, Windowcleaner, Widow Movie Maker)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/widow_7.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Visor
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Once the loving wife of Gerard Lacroix before being brainwashed by Talon and killing him, Purple Skin, Spider motif, Ax-Crazy because she loves to kill, Dark Action Girl, Every Bullet Is a Tracer, Using a Grappling-Hook Pistol, Sexy French woman, French Jerk, Lack of Empathy, "Feels Alive" while killing, Spandex, Latex, or Leather
  • Domains: Assassins, Snipers, Brainwashment, Widows, Violence
  • Followers: Caine the Longshot, Bedovian, K'Pi
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Hanzo Shimada, Junkrat and Roadhog, Mr. Mundy/The Sniper, The Spy, Lupo (From the Wolfpack)
  • Worthy Opponet: Margaret Moonlight
  • Enemies: Most Overwatch Agents (Special mention to Tracer and Ana Amari), Nova Terra, Lockon Stratos, Remy, Charlotte Dunois, Perrine H. Clostermann, Shino Asada, Yoko Littner, Lynette Bishop, Caitlyn, Kardel Sharpeye, Black Widow, Ada Wong.
  • Commonality Connection: Sarah Kerrigan
  • Opposed by: The Halls of Couples Archetypes and Couples Relationships, Oyashiro-sama
  • Pitied by: Chase/Kamen Rider Chaser, Cammy White, Alex Mason, Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow
  • Annoyed by: Amélie Poulain
  • Amélie Lacroix was once the loving wife of a renowned operative of Overwatch, Gerard Lacroix, who was a frequent target of assassination from the Terrorist Organization Talon. She was captured and later subjected to all kind of experiments before seemingly returning her without consequences. However, she managed to murder her husband in his sleep and since then became the Cold Sniper and agent of Talon known as Widowmaker.
  • Widowmaker first action after ascending was stealing a title from Lockon Stratos, which he didn't take kindly. A sniper duel ensued, which no clear victor and ultimately the French sniper got away with it. Neil is clearly furious with her but says that having the other sniper title will do for him.
  • Widowmaker and Tracer despise each other ever since their encounter in King's Row, where Tracer failed to stop the assassination of Terkhartha Mondatta, which sparked a huge conflict between humans and Omnics. And Widowmaker won't let her forget about it.
  • Widowmaker's moniker essentially scares all ascended couples, usually fearing for their beloved ones because of the chance she decides to end their life. Widowmaker certainly wouldn't mind killing them, but she only responds to her higher-ups first before going for the kill.
  • After hearing her story, Hanyuu immediately became disgusted with what Widowmaker did to her husband. She also had to kill her husband but it was for a different reason entirely
  • The house of Mentalism has been secretly analyzing if the old Amélie was still present somewhere in the mind of the brainwashed woman. Turns out that she might be semi-aware of her situation, but Widowmaker is the dominant personality.
  • Amélie Poulain was certainly curious that another Amélie has ascended and that she was also French. However, Widowmaker immediately found her annoying and tried to kill her. Thankfully, Amélie was saved by Tracer in the nick of time and warned her to not approach the Assassin ever again.
  • Because she was a victim of Brainwashing, gods who suffered the same fate really pity the poor Widowmaker. She tends to ignore these moments of pity she receives but these people believe that deep down the old Amélie must be suffering.
    • Black Widow especially sympathizes with her given that she went through a similar situation and hopes that one day she may be able to free the real Amélie.
  • Because of her nature as a Coldhearted killer, she does get along quite well with Sektor. She is trying to convince him to join Talon but the cyborg still hasn't responded to her offer.
  • Respects Lupo as a fellow Frenchwoman mercenary and because they have similar pasts, but the former can help but be at odds with Widowmaker, particularly because her reason to murdering her husband wasn't that justified but understands she wasn't in control.
  • Widowmaker doesn't get along with practically any good French deity, as they are very aware of what kind of person she is. Even French Jerk Remy thinks that Widowmaker is too much for him.
    • The Spy is one of the few ones that can tolerate her, but only when they work together. Widow has heard that the Spy is known as the bane of snipers and she keeps a watchful eye on him. It helps that her visor allows her to locate him whenever he is cloaked.
    • On the other hand, Mistral was glad to meet another French mercenary like her. Widowmaker doesn't mind her presence that much but keeps their relationship with her strictly professional.
  • When she was a little girl, Amélie used to be afraid of spiders because they told her they were emotionless creatures but nowadays she identifies and feels like one. That's why she gets along with other spider-themed ladies like Juri Han and Sadira.
  • Doesn't like that Nova "stole" her position in the Nexus. For her part, Nova dismisses all threats from Widowmaker but she keeps her guard up in case the assassin decides to strike.
    • She does fares well better with Kerrigan, as the ex-ghost can sympathize with what she went through in the past.
    • Caitlyn also immediately put her into her list of 'criminals that have to be arrested'. Whether the restoration can succeed or not, that's another story. The first priority is to apprehend Widowmaker before she could do any more harm. However, it gets troublesome when Widowmaker has that grappling hook to save her in the nick of time.
  • There is another thing that annoys Widowmaker to no end, that she considered it matching with Tracer's constant buggering on her. One that she would so gladly put a bullet on the source... Kardel Sharpeye and his "HO HO! HA HA!"
  • Rumored to be a fan of Swan Lake and even sometimes likes to dress like the white and black swan on occasions. Turns out, Amélie used to be an accomplished ballet dancer back in her civilian life and she does sometimes dance from time to time when no one is looking.
  • Heroes have been on extra-awareness for attacking Widowmaker en-masse. For some reason, she kept prevailing over overwhelming odds, even when she's supposed to be the villain. Just ask Ana or Tracer.
  • If there's one reason that some people are convinced the old Améile is still in there, it's that she reacts... strongly whenever someone thinks she was a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing to her deceased husband. Ana Amari was one of the few who dared to push her button.
    Ana: Gérard was a fool to love someone like you.
    Widowmaker: You don't know anything about him.
  • Turns out that Widowmaker lives in a fancy mansion located in Annecy, which belonged to the Guillard family for centuries and has been abandoned for a long time. Not too happy that is often the site where numerous heroes duke it out in a free for all deathmatch but what can she do.
  • During one mission, she successfully assassinated a SHIELD operative. Unfortunately, his escorter Black Widow spotted her and pursued her. Already successful in her mission, she quickly called for a getaway. But the Avenger was relentless, and beat her to the transport and destroyed it before eventually cornering her, after which it was only a matter of time before Black Widow secured a Pyrrhic Victory by decapitating her with a garrote.

    Barry Burton 
Barry Burton, God of Big Revolvers

Barry Burton in Revelations 2 
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: Besides his Weapon of Choice, the S.T.A.R.S. logo
  • Alignment: Lawful Good with Neutral Good inclinations
  • Portfolio: Alliterative Name, Badass and Child Duo With Natalia, The Big Guy, Gentle Giant, Gun Nut, The Hand Cannon Is His Weapon of Choice, Large Ham, Mighty Glacier, Papa Wolf To Moira, Took a Level in Badass
  • Domains: Law, Survival, Loyalty, Family, Protection, Weapons
  • Heralds: His wife Kathy, his youngest daughter Polly and his adoptive daughter Natalia.
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Pities: The Bakers
  • Barry Burton was one the members of the Special Tactics and Rescue Service and part of the Alpha Team that was sent to investigate the mysterious cannibalistic murders in Arklay Mountains. Barry was the weapon supplier of the team and one of the few who survived the whole ordeal in the Spencer mansion alongside fellow Alpha team members Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield and Bravo Team's rookie Rebecca Chambers. Ubenknowns to most of his teammates at the time, he was threatened by Captain Wesker to erase all the evidence in the Spencer Mansion that linked to him and act as his right hand man, otherwise he would harm his family. While Barry had to comply, he later regained his senses and turned on Wesker at the last second. Since then he has been deeply ashamed of his actions and decided to atone by helping form the BSSA and combat bioweapons.
  • Barry was happy to finally join his comrades and as the last of the Spencer Mansion survivors he felt he had big shoes to fill. For starters, he was recommended by Jill herself after feeling that she needed to have one of the comrades that always watched her back and the one that nicknamed her Master of Unlocking after all. Given Barry's tendency to carry huge revolvers that pack quite the punch. In Jill's own words, "He has THIS!".
  • Naturally the Pantheon is home to many dangerous individuals and monsters, many of which were from Barry's own universe. For starters, both Albert and Alex Wesker were one of the first that Barry had unfortunately crossed paths with and he still holds a grudge to both, Albert for forcing him to do his dirty work while with Alex he hates her for almost killing his daughter Moira and his adoptive daughter Natalia Korda. Not to mention the several former Umbrella operatives and B.O.W.s roaming around the Pantheon but Barry is prepated to take them down.
    • He was also informed by Chris about the incident in the Baker State and found the fate of that family to be rather tragic considering how protective he is of his own family. So it was pretty easy for Barry to despise Eveline for what she did, even if she is in many ways very similar to Natalia. However, he has no sympathy for Lucas Baker since unlike his parents he is not under Eveline's influence at all.
  • Barry is a proud father and a family man, threatening or harming his family being a quick way to get in his bad side and as Jill can attest to, he is not someone you want to mess with. But his history with his eldest daughter Moira is a bit complicated ever since she accidentally shot her sister Polly, both Barry and Moira drifted apart but reconciled when Barry had to save her from Alex Wesker. He gets along with similar deities who would do everything for their family, with special mention going to Guile and Bryan Mills, who also have ties to the force like Barry does.
  • Wields a powerful 44 Magnum called the Colt Anaconda and it packs quite a punch, being able to down beasts like the Hunters or even the Tyrant in one shot (although it has a chance to whiff, like that one zombie Barry had to waste 3 shots to kill. He would rather not talk about it). It was only natural that other revolver enthusiasts would be interested in Barry's Weapon of Choice and he ended up befriending Ryo Saeba, an unlikely one considering how the two are nothing alike outside of being quite the jokers. He is also impressed by the T-Dolls Contender and Thunder for being named after their respective weapon, ones that pack even more punch than Barry's Magnum to boot. He likes to mentor them on the effectiveness of revolvers, especially against living things and wonders if there is another T-Doll in their unit named after the Colt Anaconda.
  • Him and Frank West are good pals but the reason Frank even bothered to approach Barry was to ask if he owned the Jill Sandwich chain. Barry was left confused that someone would even name a restaurant after one of his silly jokes but he just roll with it and clarified he had no idea such chain existed.
  • Good friends with the AMS agents as they too are not only experience with zombie outbreaks but they even share same hilarious charm with Barry. From them he learned of the Magician, a powerful creation from their universe far more dangerous than any Tyrant you could think of and Barry made his mission to destroy the creature before he gets out of control.
  • Even if Barry is a certified Gun Nut, improper use of guns do tend to get on his nerves like that one time Hol Horse challenged to a duel and even dare to cheat using his stand. Somehow Barry ended up defeating him with not much effort because he is a horrible shot either way and then got him sent to the Pantheonic jail for a while. Since then the two have been bitter enemies.
  • Barry is definitely a bit miffed by Magnificent Bastards given how he was forced into betraying his S.T.A.R.S. teammates by Wesker and it just so happen that another Gun Nut who uses revolvers, the amptly named Revolver Ocelot, is one of them. Although not as bad as his former boss, that doesn't mean he is by any means a good person and Barry has come to distrust him.
  • Experienced enough to pilot helicopters and often assist the GUAG with rescue missions whenever he can. He also prone to saving people in the nick of time but those who are saved by him insist on not making sandwich jokes.

    Caleb Quinn 
Caleb Quinn, God of Harpoon Guns (The Deathslinger, The Collector, The Gunslinger, Mad Mick, Micah)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/deathslinger_4.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Redeemer, his rifle
  • Theme Song: Chains of Hate and his chase music
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Badass Longcoat, Bounty Hunter, Evil Cripple, Evil Laugh, Looks quite old but still plenty of evil, Son of irish immigrants, Gadgeteer Genius, The Gunslinger, Lean and Mean, Long-Range Fighter, Pulling enemies closer with the Redeemer
  • Domains: Weapons, Crime, Revenge, Ireland, Death
  • Superior: The Entity
  • Allies: Aran Ryan, Erron Black, Tychus Findlay
  • Rivals: The Engineer
  • Enemies: All the ascended survivors from Dead by Daylight, The Saint of Killers, The Warden, The Wall, Amanda Waller, John Marston, Jack Marston, Cole Cassidy, The House of Businesses and Corporations
  • Conflicting opinions: John Donovan
  • Caleb Quinn was the son of struggling irish immigrant during the wild west american era and from a young age, Caleb had a knack for inventing all sorts of gadgets, often to get back at people that wronged him. His intellect managed to get the attention of an important company run by Henry Bayshore, who proceed to patent Quinn's creations as his own, which ended bad for Bayshore once Caleb found out and promptly brutalized the man as payback, but Bayshore miraculously survived, saving Quinn from being hanged. For years, a Warden in Hellshire Penitentiary employed Caleb as a Bounty Hunter to bring back escaped convicts in exchange for power and a reduced sentence, only for the Warden to sell him out to Bayshore once the latter bought the prison. Enraged once again, Quinn round off the prisoners and led an uprising against the warden and bayshore, succeeding in finally killing them but Caleb himself wouldn't be witness to their demise, as he was swiftly recruited by the Entity to acts as one of its many killers.
  • As the Deathslinger, Caleb utilizes his trusty rifle called "The Redeemer", which fires harpoons that are designed to snare his targets closer to him (although his first attempt ended up being fatal to the target). The Entity once again organized the ascension of one of its champion to ensure many of the killers found in its realm are in the pantheon and switfly turn the place into part of the Entity's realm. For Caleb himself, he mostly doesn't bother that many people unless he has a good reason to do so or the Entity commands him to sacrifice deities in its name, to him it's usually Nothing Personal. Even the measures to contain other killers aren't applied to him as he tends to have more run-ins with the law than with actual supernatural organizations, although him being among the Entity's entourage certainly complicates things.
  • Spends most of his time building the one odd invention that he tends to come up whenever he has time to kill, otherwise he is usually deploy as an agent for the Entity whenever it needs Caleb to sacrifice some survivors. His loyalty towards the Entity is unknown, some believe he never really intended to be taken by it but at the very least it allowed him to escape retribution from starting the prison break. Concerning his inventions, the Engineer as a fellow Southern-Fried Genius has actually praised Caleb for his creativity but isn't thrilled to know about his employer, though Deathslinger was quick to point out that as a mercenary he serves equally shady people himself. The two remain strong rivals and Caleb has had trouble overcoming the Engineer's creations, only being able to get around them by designing his own turrets and dispensers.
  • Moonlights as a Bounty Hunter sometimes, to remind him of the days he could reduce his sentence by bringing convicts to the Warden. Ironically, Caleb quickly became infamous for his brutal methods and so gained a bounty on his name that got him clashing with several other cowboys. John Marston thinks of Quinn as the unholy fusion of Micah Bell and Irish, and somehow finds him more bearable than the aforementioned two yet still hates his guts. A similar sentence comes from Marston's son Jack, who actually feels sympathetic towards Quinn because of his genius intellect that was wasted on a criminal life given his social status as a child of irish people as well as being screwed over by Henry Bayshore. But perhaps the oddest of the cowboys was Cole Cassidy, a man who wasn't from his time but from a futuristic setting, even having a few unusual gadgets of his own, which instantly caught the attention of the deathslinger, who wants to steal those tools from Cassidy and reverse engineer it into something new (and since Cassidy is also a wanted man, he would also collect the bounty just for the hell of it).
  • Not one to make many friends, most folks in his life always looked down on him for being irish-american. Of all deities, only Aran Ryan was crazy enough to approach the deathslinger and many expected the boxer to get skewered the second he got close to Quinn, but he actually took a liking to Ryan. Apparently, Aran is kind of a way for Caleb to get closer to the people from his heritage and even if he probably could have started with someone less insane, the fact that he is a killer working for a Eldritch Abomination doesn't exactly do wonders for your reputation.
  • Despises corrupt officials, wardens especially considering he used to work for one. The likes of Amanda Waller or the Warden (not to be confused with Hellshire's warden, who also goes unnamed) disgusts him for being callous and using criminals as fodder, swearing to rip their brains out with Redeemer should they ever try something funny with him. Quinn was also placed in the Wall after an altercation during one of his many escapades as a Bounty Hunter, which ended horribly for the organization as mere hours after being placed into a cell, the Entity snatched Quinn from his cell without anyone noticing.
  • That being said, he did manage to make some friends in the field. Erron Black, who also serves supernatural forces, is sympathetic to Quinn's plight with being screwed over by others and often works together with him, which has somehow made the relationship between the Entity and Outworld actually somewhat amicable, but even the latter is hesitant to work with an abomination that even the Elder Gods would have trouble dealing with.
  • As a Boxed Crook, Caleb is actually sympathetic to Tychus Findlay's situation. Widely different timeframes aside, they aren't that different considering how Terrans are viewed as inferior to the humans of earth just like Caleb's irish side always screwed him over one way or the other. Being knowledgeable about engineering, Caleb has actually tried to help Tychus get rid of his suit but his unfamiliarity with futuristic tech didn't help much unfortunately. That said, Tychus could get freed should he serve the Entity but even then Tychus is firmly against serving an abomination like that.
  • John Donovan is actually quite sympathetic with the treatment Quinn received back in the day, but draws the line at that considering that's not a reason for murdering innocents in the name of some evil god. Donovan has tried to persuaded Quinn to leave the Deathslinger moniker behind and go legit but he neither trusts the Pantheonic system to forgive him nor does he think he can straight up leave the Entity just because.
  • After being screwed over by his creations being patented by Bayshore, he refuses to create stuff for any big organization or rich deity. In fact, he has been approached numerous times and every time he just shanks them to death with Redeemer as a grizzly reminder that he isn't messing around. Caleb has an habit of actually targetting deities in Businesses and Corporations and sacrifice them to the Entity just to get back at those types that wronged him in the past.
  • The only time the Deathslinger was actually in real trouble was when he pissed off the Saint of Killers. Legendary for killing both god and the devil, the Saint heard of Quinn's reputation and sought him out, asking him about why he would work for the Entity. Quinn initially brushed him off as another annoying cowboy out to get him but he quickly found out how powerful the Saint was when he was instantly put down by one of his bullets. Worse yet, The Saint of Killers is actually aiming to destroy the Entity and put an end to it permanently thanks to Caleb's actions, which certainly has displeased the creature who punished Quinn accordingly by severing their connections for a few days and depowering him.

Contender
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/900px_thunder.png
Thunder
  • Lesser Goddesses
  • Symbol: Their namesake guns with Contender also being represented by a bowl of shaved ice and while Thunder has the black feathers of her coat.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Ridiculously Human Robots, Innate Night Vision, Buffing other T-Dolls but still being Mechanically Unusual Fighters among HGs, Armor Piercing Hand Cannons
  • Domains: Androids, Pistols, Armor-Piercing
  • Allies: G36, S.A.T.8, AUG, Carcano M1891 and Carcano M91/38, TAC-50, AA-12 and Vector, 2B, 9S, Barry Burton
  • Enemies: The Eliksni (particularly the Devil Splicers), T-800, T-1000, SKYNET, The Enclave
  • Opposes:
  • Complicated Relationship (mainly mistrust): Isomer Black
  • Pitied by:
  • Heralds: Python and M950A along with the rest of Team ATK (AEK-999, TMP, and K2)
  • When exploring the world, especially in places where law could scarcely shine like a star in, it is important to keep oneself armed, aware, and prepared. Firepower isn't everything, but it does help. Griffon And Kryuger's T-Dolls wield what can be considered archaic antiques and yet they're still are able to stand against the likes of the renegade Sangvis Ferri. Case in point: The ever confident and stylish Contender and the subdued and stoic Thunder, both of whom wield powerful Hand Cannons. Few amidst their Handgun wielding comrades have innate armor piercing to their attacks or skills involving carefully aimed and damaging shots with their respective Inquisitor's Bullet and Critical Point Shot.
  • Both of their ascensions came when the two were assigned an expedition alongside a couple other dolls. On the return trip back to base they were caught off guard by an attack from spider-like creatures clad in black and red and were forced to scatter and regroup latter. Contender and Thunder ended up going together though the two still found themselves under hot pursuit by their assailants. To buy themselves some time they took note of who was giving the orders and, through patience and careful aim, both of their bullets nailed it right in the head before they escaped in the confusion. By happenstance they escaped into where said creatures came from, the Pantheon, where they happened upon G36 and other androids named 2B and 9S who were kind enough to explain to them everything they needed to know alongside helping them settle in.
    • They soon came to understand later that the assailants they fought earlier were part of the Eliksni, a scavenger alien race that has been in many a conflict with humanity after they too had experienced calamity in their world. Delving onto the topic more Contender and Thunder found they had specifically fought against the Devil Splicers, a group of extremist Eliksni who utilize the nanotechnology of SIVA to further their ends, that being trying to reunite their brethren under their rule and have everyone share in SIVA's "gift". Troubled by the thought that they tried to slip into their world was a main motivator to take up a Pantheonic title.
  • As they are apart of G&K they are also participants in the Robot War waged by Sangvis Ferri dolls and as such are also enemies with the likes of the T-800, the T-1000, and their master, SKYNET. With KCCO's betrayal they are also aren't too fond of the Enclave either given their goals of wiping out the wasteland of anything they deemed "impure". With the global spread of Collapse Radiation in their world it's very likely that twisted version of the United States would see the entirety of their world as no different from the "mutie" infested one they themselves are from.
  • Strangely, despite the two having Hand Cannons with armor piercing attacks thanks to the ammo they've chambered only Contender is able to equip AP Rounds all Rifle T-Dolls and a few others use. Thunder is restricted to only the Hollow-Point ammunition for her equipment slot. As far as gameplay is concerned, at least. Some members in the House of Firearms found this baffling though they eventually just shrugged it off and moved on.
  • Applying to Contender:
    • Contender, a rare 5* Statuesque Stunner T-Doll dressed in fancy clothing who always holds her head high. The type to not rely on others but the rather be the one relied on, especially by people like the Commander. Thus, she often tends to refer to percentages and formulas, usually the ones that favor success. At her core she is a planner, but she's still one to believe and rely on chance and luck.
    Contender: Every round I fire guarantees a 99% chance of victory. The remaining 1% will require your miracle, Commander.
    • A tomboy at heart, and it shows between the demeanor she has when in a maid outfit picked out by Gepárd M1 versus her regular attire and other costumes. Whereas with any other clothing Contender exudes an unshakable aura of confidence but as a maid she's nervous and red as a beet. Of course, if the situation calls she has no problem reverting to her usual self. The Contender that avoided being shot on stage during an orchestrated bombing on a theater has not gone away just because she's in some different attire, after all.
      • Caught the eye of Rarity one day through the kind of clothing Contender usually wears as well as her other costumes when she allowed the pony to take a gander. Out of all of them, the one that captured her interest the most was the "Dragon's Son" costume where there's a clear prominence in Gem Tissue. It has been said that since that day the unicorn has helped her as well as her comrades mend any Clothing Damage they suffer while on duty.
    • She is quite the Sweet Tooth if her preference towards ice cream is anything to go off of. She says so herself that it helps her think better and is happy to invite her comrades over for some on her downtime. While exploring the Pantheon on her own Contender ended up befriending Lemres and Ann Takamki and spends some of her break with them. Though Contender admits she finds the former to be a bit of a weirdo. A talented weirdo, but a weirdo nonetheless.
      • One time while waiting to meet up with G36 to discuss some matters in the House of Family in person during the wait she was greeted by a young, energetic and ever-so curious green haired girl. The girl, named Yotsuba Koiwai, wandered over to where Contender stood waiting eating her ice cream and stuck around. In that short amount of time the two quickly bonded when the lavish T-Doll bought Yotsuba some of her own ice cream though it eventually had to end by the G36 had arrived where they continued their business.
    • Due to the gameplay reasons stated above it is stated that she would a good choice for a doll in "Gunboat Echelons" consisting of her or an AR doll accompanied by five other dolls wielding machine guns. They prominently see their use in defeating KCCO's Typhons with her company taking out the tank's escorts and escaping themselves before being hit by their heavy weaponry. From there, Contender dodges oncoming fire until a certain distance by which she gets to whittle down the tanks. Very slowly.
    • Though it is not a prominent skill of hers but when it comes to music Contender is good at the violin and can be occasionally seen performing with it in the House of Music. Classy music for a classy gal, it seems. With that said it's not a talent she seems to be willing to dabble on beyond special occasions but it is fun thing to note about her all the same.
    • When he heard that she was one of the dolls who was assigned to both participate in and help defend a theater troupe from attackers the Phantom of the Opera was quite pleased and made it a note to let such praises be known to her. While flattered by the compliment the fact that it comes from someone with a less than clean history such as his isn't quite as uplifting as initially planned. Yes, the Phantom is a better person now but that doesn't necessarily erase the past. Still, he's kind to her and has from time to time offered her a place in some of the House of Theatre and Spectacle's shows and both are willing to fend off the Great Fusilli when he tries hosting one of his own or even hijack them for his own nefarious deeds. Especially so since she nearly fell victim to the Wicked Cultured crocodile's magic, almost literally becoming a doll herself.
    • "Accuracy first, then firepower until after the enemies are defeated. Commander, this is my formula for victory."
  • Applying to Thunder:
    • A doll with an unchanging face and who speaks in an always neutral tone, that is who Thunder is. She is thought to have a dark past as the scars on her person indicate, the most prominent being the one on her neck. Her illustrator notes Thunder is an obsolete doll and was a Death Seeker who has learned to suppress herself by the time she came to G&K having experienced much of "humanity's dark side". Thankfully, she would come to understand that her place with the Commander isn't anything like her past and after the events where she and her teammates were trapped in Pocket City Thunder understands she has to fight for her own happiness as opposed to running away from her problems.
    • Has a preference towards firepower, which makes her assigned weapon of choice all the more fitting. Going off of that, Thunder prefers to express herself through taking out her namesake gun and firing it. An interesting tic to be had which can be made problematic in public areas. She first demonstrated this trait of hers with little to no warning when the Court of Gods allowed M950A, a close friend of hers, to be one of their Heralds along with Team ATK as a whole, though thankfully negotiations still went smoothly in the end. The Court made it clear to them that this isn't their first rodeo.
      • It was suggested to her at some point that she could try her hand at using a multitude of masks to express herself like with Hata no Kokoro, as an alternative to blowing holes in people's walls and ceilings with her gun. Thunder has declined it, however, still preferring actions over actions not words ("Facta Non Verba" to be precise, the latin phrase for it she stitched onto the inside of her coat). That, and Thunder doesn't feel like lugging that many masks, though she is willing to pay for the damages caused by her ability to express herself.
    • Speaking of her friendship with M950A there are some in the Pantheon who speculate that it goes well beyond a friendship. And there are some among them who speculate that PA-15, a fellow G&K T-Doll, is... a result of such intimacy be between them. Somehow. No one is pressing the issue, however, out of basic human respect towards her and her personal life.
    • During a stroll into the House of Narrative Thunder across two girls named Yuri and Sayori discussing poetry while waiting for their other friends in their Literature Club. One thing lead to another and the doll ended up writing some too while they waited having quickly formed a bit of a friendship with the two of them due to some sense of resonance. Thunder admits she's still a bit of a greenhorn when it comes to writing poems, and that she still prefers using her gun to express herself, but finds it nice all the same.
    • It can be said that Thunder and Violet Evergarden share quite a number of similarities with both once being very emotionless girls until a significant change in their lifestyles allowed them to start breaking out of that, finding their own happiness and changing for the better. Granted, comparing the two's journeys leaves a stark contrast with Violet going from life as a weapon in a war to a civilian lifestyle while Thunder goes from a plaything for infamies to one of many soldiers in a PMC but the comparison is still there as well as the understanding of one another.
    • Was once approached by Dollface while walking the Pantheon's many roads one day. While she was very cordial and could sense she means no ill will at all, Thunder couldn't help but be a bit uncomfortable by her ruthless vigilantism, as deserving as the targets of her wrath may be. Still, given Dollface's circumstances and the fact that she still developed to ultimately be a good person in a universe as twisted as hers Thunder can't quite oppose her for it either. Perhaps helping her light was the fact she also introduced Thunder to two people: Misao and Simon, both of whom have suffered quite a bit themselves though at least lead happier lives now that they're in the Pantheon.
    • On certain times in the year, such as Children's Day, she will revert to a younger form. This does little to change Thunder's overall behavior, and if anything the sad aura she gives off is amplified thanks to the now viable scars on her body. In times like these, she frequents the House of Childhood and Adolescence.
    • Routinely goes into the House of Gaming and Music. This comes from the fact that she's quite a fan of playing First Person Shooters in her private time and after getting into music she can sometimes be seen performing as a drummer. That said, she prefers to jam with her squadmates and does so every week on GKTV.
      • And speaking of music Thunder often carries an MP3 player and earbuds long enough to be worn by two people. There are many songs listed on it, though the most played out of all of them is Only for You.
    • Once came across John Merrick on one of the rare occasions in which he ventures outside his temple. Thunder was in a hurry to deliver some key items to her peers where she ended up bumping into him by accident. Initially, she thought the man was one of the shady figures from her past and made an effort to keep the meeting brief. It was only after that he demonstrated that he is not that but in fact a kind gentleman underneath it all that Thunder quickly apologized for her earlier conceptions of him. Merrick merely told her to think nothing of it and holds nothing against her for it and helped her gather her stuff. It can be said that a certain kinship "clicked" between the two, having both grown up and suffered under the more darker sides of society, different as both of theirs are as well as their abuses may be.
    • "Even a sky ruled by thunder needs birds, which is why I'm fighting here."

    König and Zaytsev 
"Autumn, 1942. Europe lies crushed between the Nazi jackboot. The German Third Reich is at the height of its power. Hitler's armies are charging through the heart of the Soviet Union towards the oil fields of Asia. One last obstacle remains. A city on the Volga where the fate of the world is being decided. Stalingrad."

Major Konig in November 1942
  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbols: A Mosin-Nagant M91/30 with a PU scope for Vasily, and a Karabiner 98 kurz with a Zeiss ZF-42 scope for Konig
  • Themes:
  • Alignments: Neutral Good (Zaytsev); Lawful Evil (Konig)
  • Portfolios:
  • Domains: Sniping, Duels, Rivalry
  • Allies and Enemies: Due to being on opposing sides, they are sworn enemies with each other
  • Receive special attention from: Lt. Karl Fairburne, Mr. Mundy, The Spy, Pvt. Jackson, Widowmaker, Ana, Lockon Stratos
  • During the Battle of Stalingrad in 1942, two snipers from the USSR and Nazi Germany would duel one another to the death in the ruins in and around the titular city for an entire month, all the while the rest of the Red Army and Wehrmacht were engaging in brutal Urban Warfare over control of the city. They were Vasily Zaytsev and Major Erwin Konig, two very different men from two very different social castes and places. The former hailed from the Ural Mountains, and before the war served as a shepherd, who learned his shooting skills through hunting wolves with his grandfather. The latter, meanwhile, was an aristocrat and the head of the German Army's sniper school, where he mentored hundreds of soldiers in the art of sniping, including a number of Soviet soldiers just before the German Invasion of the Soviet Union.
  • Vasily first arrived in the city of Stalingrad in September 1942 as a conscript. Thrust immediately into battle without a weapon, he managed to survive both the Germans and execution by his own commissars by taking shelter in a ruined fountain. It was here he encountered Commissar Danilov, who was able to finally provide him with a Mosin-Nagant rifle to use. He then went to work, killing 5 Germans near their position, saving his and Danilov's lives. Out of gratitude, Danilov helped him to get promoted and reassigned to a Soviet sniper unit while also becoming a Propaganda Hero whose exploits were published in Soviet newspapers. Through this reassignment, he began to rack up an impressive number of kills, mainly German Army officers.
  • Increasingly concerned of the new threat, General Friedrich Paulus, commander of the German 6th Army assaulting Stalingrad, decides to call their best sniper into Stalingrad: Major Erwin Konig. Konig immediately gets to work, making arrangements so that it would be Zaytsev would find him. What followed was a series of encounters between the two, with Konig having the upper hand on Zaytsev, killing several of his squadmates in quick order. Among these included experienced Soviet sniper Koulikov, who ironically had trained under the Major before the outbreak of war, and thus knew all of the Major's tricks.
  • Over time, however, Vasily managed to gain the upper hand on the more experienced Major. First, by managing to wound the Major by shooting his right hand during an encounter at the Stalingrad Tractor Factory. Ultimately, Vasily ended up luring the major into Vasily's own, improvised, trap, thanks to the death of his close ally Sacha Filipov, the Heroic Sacrifice of his friend Commissar Danilov, and the apparent death of his own love interest Tanya. Vasily would eventually reunite with Tanya a few months later, finally earning his happy ending with her, at least for the time being.
  • At least, that's the "official" story given by Soviet propaganda. Some historians dispute that Konig was never real, and that the sniper duel between him and Zaytsev was a complete fabrication. However, this is ambiguous, as a few books about the Battle of Stalingrad, including the Real Life Zaytsev's own autobiography, state that the Major was indeed a real person and that the duel did indeed take place, albeit known as "Konings", the Dutch translation of the Major's last name. The story of Zaytsev and Konig explains this by having the Major remove his dog tags, preventing the Soviets from identifying his body when the Major is later killed in action by Zaytsev. One book meanwhile claims that Konig was actually an SS Colonel named "Heinz Thorvald".
  • Following the conclusion of the Battle of Stalingrad, both Zaytsev and Konig would end up ascending at the same time as Dual Deities of the Sniper Duel. Though unlike most other deities sharing a title, they did not end up ascending together as a group due to their status as arch-enemies. Instead, they ascended separately of one another. Vasily ended up in the Pantheon via a worn out river boat not unlike the one that had first brought him into Stalingrad. Konig on the other hand arrived via a luxurious train carriage, complete with his own oak desk, comfy chair, and a king sized bed.
  • Konig, unsurprisingly, ended up in Nazi German-controlled territory in the Pantheon, serving directly under the likes of Johann Schmidt and his numerous associates. He ends up doing two jobs for the other Nazis, the first being training other German snipers, specifically the Waffen Senior Troopers and the Valkyrie Snipers. The second, more prominent job is being the Nazis' personal assassin against high-valued Allied targets. Such intended targets include the notorious "Shadow", Lt. Karl Fairburne, responsible for the destruction of several wonder weapons as well as months worth of fuel, ammunition, and dozens of vehicles, and high-value scientists such as Dr. Abraham Erskine, who helped develop a Super Soldier serum and was responsible for the creation of Captain America. Notably, despite repeated offers by other Nazis such as "Deathshead" Strasse to upgrade his Karabiner 98 kurz Sniper Rifle for a more advanced weapon, Konig ends up turning down their offers and instead continues to soldier on with his older, but still very efficient, bolt-action sniper rifle.
  • Zaytsev, on the other hand, ends up under the command of the Soviet Marshal Georgy Zhukov, who is himself a veteran of the Eastern Front, and by extension, Stalingrad. Under the Soviet General, Zaytsev once again serves as a Propaganda Hero, serving as a way for the already famous Zhukov to garner even more support from both other Russians as well from other countries. He also ends up working and serving alongside a squad of other Stalingrad veterans, namely Capt. Viktor Reznov, Pvt. Dimitri Petrenko, and Pvt. Vasili Ivanovich Koslov. Notably, all four of them, Zaytsev included, were all trained and skilled snipers, particularly with the Mosin-Nagant M1891/30 Sniper Rifle.
    • Interestingly, it should be noted that Petrenko and Koslov share several notable traits with Vasily Zaytsev, particularly elements of their backstories and service records. Petrenko in particular, like Zaytsev, survived a Curb-Stomp Battle and subsequent massacre by German soldiers, ended up becoming an impromptu sniper, and engaged in a Sniper Duel with a skilled German sniper.
    • One other thing that Zaytsev shares with Reznov's group is their mutual distrust of ruthless communist types. It's for this reason for that Zaytsev refuses to work under Nikita Dragovich or Yevgeny Borisovitch Volgin, given their reputations for being hardcore Stalinists and terrible commanding officers, not to mention working with individuals who are just as untrustworthy.
  • Inevitably, both snipers would inevitably meet one another in the Pantheon once more, not helped by the fact that many of the German and Soviet deities in the Pantheon wish to continue fighting against their ideological enemies. Instead of in the ruins of Stalingrad, however, Zaytsev and Konig would end up dueling one another in different locations throughout the Pantheon, though mostly in areas controlled by either the Nazis or the Soviets. Their activity attracts the attention of the aformentioned Karl Fairburne, who has himself fought against both the Nazis and the Soviets in 1945. Unsurprisingly, Fairburne intially distrusts both men, having seen what both factions have been capable of firsthand during the Battle of Berlin. This soon changed when Zaytsev saved the OSS agent from being killed by the Major during one such duel between the two, with Fairburne having been baited by Major Konig through elaborate use of an Outfit Decoy complete with a dummy Sniper Rifle...not unlike Zaytsev's own first encounter with the Major. This incident, and Sgt. Jack Barnes vouching for the Soviet sniper causes Fairburne to change his opinion of the Russian sniper.
  • Inevitably, other snipers in the Pantheon become interested in both Konig and Zaytsev. Some simply wish to witness the sniping skills of both firsthand, while others wish to recruit either's help for one reason or another.
    • Notable examples include Pvt. Jackson of Charlie Company, 2nd Ranger Battalion, who wants to duel against Konig, having heard about the Major through Lt. Fairburne. The American Ranger ends up befriending the Soviet sniper in the process, exchanging their combat experience and valuable sniping skills to one another.
    • Others, such as Widowmaker, wish to have Konig help them fight against their respective enemies. It probably helps that Konig is taking orders from Johann Schmidt, one of the many leaders of HYDRA, who are in fact one of her and her associates' allies in the field. The Major ultimately agrees, but refuses help from her in taking down Zaytsev due to his determination in wanting to personally kill his old foe.
  • While Konig and Zaytsev do have mutual enemies in the Pantheon, both men don't trust one another enough to perform an Enemy Mine, no thanks to Konig himself having committed a few war crimes during the Battle of Stalingrad. Rather than fight against these mutual enemies together, what usually ends up happening is a Mêlée à Trois between the two snipers and their mutual enemies, with the two snipers almost always getting away unscathed to fight another day.
  • One notable enemy of Zaytsev's that isn't shared by Konig is none other than Muruta Azrael. While neither a communist nor a Nazi, Zaytsev absolutely loathes him and his successor Lord Djibril thanks to their treatment of their subordinates, which Zaytsev himself has experienced firsthand from several Soviet commissars. But, the atrocities committed by his own countrymen pale in comparison to the devastation arranged by these two, and for Zaytsev, This Is Unforgivable!, to the point he has gone on an Assassination Attempt on the two Blue Cosmos leaders alone.
  • Many unaligned or unfamiliar deities assume that the Major is an Officer and a Gentleman, when in fact he is a Faux Affably Evil Cold Sniper who is absolutely ruthless both in and out of combat, having even committed a few war crimes in an attempt to take down his Soviet rival. While he is reluctant to kill children, when push comes to shove, he won't hesitate to do so, as shown with the fate of Sasha Filipov. There's also the matter of turning a blind eye to the treatment of prisoners of war. While he opposes torture, he isn't above using enemy captives as sniper bait.

Zaytsev: "I am a stone. I do not move..."

Konig: "He isn't dead. You know why? Because I haven't killed him yet."

    Pinstripe Potoroo 
Pinstripe Potoroo, God of Reliably Unreliable Guns (Don Pinstripelli Potorotti)

  • Alignment: Neutral Evil

  • Domains: Gangsters, Animals
  • Allies: Dr. Cortex, Uka Uka, Toon Patrol, Fat Tony, Nack the Weasel
  • Rivals: Mr. Burns, 3rd Street Saints Leader, Tony Montana
  • Enemies: Crash Bandicoot, Aku Aku, N. Oxide, Conker, Roger Rabbit
  • Friendly Enemies: Tawna & The Nitro Squad
  • Pinstripe Potoroo is one the various mutant animals created by Dr. Cortex and is every bit as unusual as anything made by the mad scientist. His mannerisms are very much like that of a gangster and he owns a power plant that is used to power up some of Cortex's plans. He also has a Tommy gun with him, something that he cares about a lot to the point of cradling it from time-to-time. Pinstripe likes to fire his gun frequently, but there are moments where it jams (or he has to reload in some cases) giving his opponents a chance to attack.
  • A few members of the Pantheon were more than annoyed to find out that another power plant was somehow built, causing one of the oceans to be polluted in the process. Some deities traversed the place demanding to find answers, having to put up with a devious layout before reaching the owner of that power plant. To their surprise, they ended up finding a potoroo with a gun named Pinstripe who happened to be the owner of that specific power plant. After a gunfight, Pinstripe got sent to the Court of Gods, but the requests to get him kicked out was denied thanks to Cortex working behind the scenes to ensure a spot in the Pantheon for Pinstripe.
  • The Toon Patrol initially mistook him as a forgotten member of their ranks given his similar appearance and gangster-like attitude when they first encountered him. Pinstripe stated that he wasn't a weasel, but took a liking to the Patrol and sometimes joins them in causing mayhem around the Pantheon. It led to Roger Rabbit having a bit of a freak-out the first time he saw the potoroo thinking that the Toon Patrol got a new member, but Pinstripe cares little about what that rabbit thinks.
    • Conker was another deity that thought the potoroo was a weasel, only in that case the squirrel thought that Pinstripe was a weird-looking member of Don Weaso's gang that had gong into hiding. Conker somehow made his way to Pinstripe's hideout and confronted him for looking too much like the weasel mafia that gave him trouble in the past. All Pinstripe saw was just a freak waiting to be shot and proceeded to do so via his Tommy gun. Conker somehow found another gun lying around and a shoot-out between the two ensued. It ended with severe damage done to the place and an explosion that resulted in the place needing to be rebuilt for a while. Even if Pinstripe had no connection to Don Weaso whatsoever, Conker is more than willing to see that potoroo dead for his gangster-like behavior and for being another nuisance to his already terrible Pantheon life.
  • The House of Crime became a frequent spot for Pinstripe to visit whenever he isn't busy aiding Cortex in any sort of plan. As the potoroo quickly found out thanks to his time there, there was a lot more to crime than just being a gangster. He's generally more used to talking with other gangsters both there and in other places at the Pantheon, with Pinstripe only having few considerations in branching out. That said, some of the more extreme methods of criminal activity he discovered during his visits at the House of Crime (mainly to selling actual human lives) are not something he'll act on.
    • Of the various gangsters that Pinstripe has encountered, he's a bit jealous of the 3rd Street Saints Leader, mainly because of the kinds of feats that the latter has accomplished as a gang-leader. The leader of the 3rd Street Saints didn't really see a gangster potoroo as anything unusual (though most of the rest of the House of Crime beg to differ) and sees Pinstripe as sort of a novice in comparison, even with the experience of owning a power plant. Both sides often get into fights with each other, but it's apparent that Pinstripe really can't match what the 3rd Street Saints leader has in terms of weapons and members at hand.
  • During a meeting with the Toon Patrol, Nack the Weasel learned about another gun-toting animal that the group has taken a liking to and wanted to see what was up spceifically. Although Nack found it odd about who Pinstripe was at first, he quickly took a liking to the potoroo. Pinstripe learned that Nack was a bounty hunter of sorts and figured that Nack could be used to eliminate rivals that Pinstripe is having trouble with, something Nack is willing to do if it means earning money.
  • Some of his visits to the House of Crime had him hearing about Tony Montana, a mobster who underwent a violent path to the top that was riddled with bullets. Pinstripe was more than curious about him and wanted to try and visit him despite warnings of what happened to Tony as a result of his rise to power. Tony had every bit of a trigger finger that Pinstripe had and a shoot-out was the first thing that happened between the two once they met. That encounter ended with Tony gaining the upper hand and both parties being very bitter towards each other.
  • After hearing the news of Pinstripe being in the Pantheon thinking that he was a rat, Fat Tony decided to meet up with him in the hopes of finally encountering a rat gangster. Pinstripe stated that he was a potoroo and not a rat, but Fat Tony still welcomed Pinstripe in open arms and decided to show the potoroo what he does. Pinstripe saw plenty of opportunities with Fat Tony's gang and decided to be a part-time member of such. This also led to Pinstripe mulling over the possibility of setting up a legitimate front to throw off anyone that's looking to stop his criminal activity.
  • Mr. Burns was bemused to learn that there was another deity who had ownership of a separate power plant and was just as weirded out when he learned that said owner was an anthropomorphic potoroo. Although Montgomery didn't have any clue (nor did he care about) on what a potoroo is, he saw Pinstripe's power plant as a competitor to the Springfield Power Plant. Pinstripe does have some resentment towards Mr. Burns on how the latter is able to make so much money throughout his life and has considered some methods to try and at least get closer to the number that Burns has.
  • Looking to expand his horizons, Pinstripe once tried his hand at being a used car salesman. He was able to get plenty of sales as a result of using his Tommy gun to coerce his customers into buying a car quicker. His repeat attempt at such in the Pantheon (which included the possibility of adding more vehicles to the lineup) didn't end well due to a combination of complaints involving his method of selling and a police raid on the selling grounds that ended with the whole place being set ablaze.
  • At the recommendation of the Toon Patrol, Pinstripe decided to raid an area dedicated to housing additional guns alongside them whilst looking for a potentially stronger gun for the potoroo to use. Some of the guns that Pinstripe tried out for a bit during his visit included a rocket launcher and a pistol, though he preferred to stick to his Tommy gun. Unsurprisingly, Pinstripe and the Toon Patrol's visit to that place ended with them getting kicked out and bullet holes throughout most of the area.
  • One part of his life that has been under contention is him being in a relationship with Tawna Bandicoot. Neither are really interested in answering questions related to it, though both aren't overtly hostile towards each other in part of the Nitro Squad wanting relatively friendly ties towards Crash's adversaries that aren't named Nitros Oxide (whom Pinstripe sees as a problem the same way the rest of Crash's friends and foes see the alien) and Uka Uka.

    Rushuna Tendou 
Rushuna Tendou, Goddess of Enemy Disarmament and Bathing Beauties (Rushuna Tendo, The Beautiful Senshi, The Smiling Enlightened, Grenadier: The Smiling Senshi)

  • Respects: The Phantom Thieves of Hearts
  • She preaches the ultimate battle strategy of embracing your opponents and erasing their will to fight. She protects the innocent from the evil, and the evil from themselves. She is capable of making even the most vile and demented villains realize the error of their ways and turn over a new leaf. She walks the Earth disarming countries and unwillingly winning Fanservice awards. This is the legend of the Smiling Senshi.
  • The Gunslinger Septet were hanging out one day having fun at the House of Weapons' shooting range, practicing their aim and skills. Then Vash the Stampede realized something: "Where is Rushuna?" The other members also caught on to this and began searching for her, eventually leading to her dilapidated temple. A note posted there reads, "I will be gone for a while. I have more smiles to make! - Rushuna." Having a feeling that the Smiling Senshi is coming back to the Pantheons after an unquestioned absence, the Septet decided to go to the Court of the Gods to keep her temple up.
    • The Court decreed that Rushuna needs a new title, so Vash suggested she has Blasting It Out of Their Hands while keeping Bathing Beauty because respectively: like him, Rushuna disarms her enemies by shooting their hands and she is constantly seen bathing. They agreed with such a position and declared her temple to be renovated by the Master Builders Four. When it is done, the Septet organized a party with Pinkie Pie to celebrate her return. And Rushuna did return; she was greeted with a surprise from them, happy that they put a smile to her face.
  • Supposedly, she is even more capable with firearms than Vash, but decided his title should stay his because she doesn't like showing off. For his part, he likes her well enough, as do others, such as Dante (a red-cloaked super-fighter who loves swords and guns just like Vash) and Kisuke Urahara (who also has a color-coded outfit including a hat and has on occasion formed a "sword-and-guns" duo with her). They would gladly concur that having a beautiful lady around who's also skilled with guns and takes their colorful styles in stride is pretty cool.
  • While she isn't open to mortal propositions (luckily for the proposer, she's among those who'll laugh and either playfully dodge the question or deliberately misunderstand it, and she's always up for being friends), she's quite open to giving anyone, deity or not, a big ol' hug to cheer them up or quell their violent tendencies if they'd prove to be more of a danger than usual. It's universally agreed that she's really good at this, probably the absolute best among any of the Pantheons. Her vast real estate holdings help a little (...okay, a lot), but her personality is agreed upon to be the main factor.
    • This is why she admired the recently ascended wrestler named Bayley who, despite being one of the best wrestlers in the world, much prefers hugging and making people happy when she's outside the ropes. One day they finally met each other and hugged for over a minute. It would soon be called one of the most tender moments in the Pantheon's history.
  • She's practically Noel Vermillion's Cool Big Sis, as she tutored her in gun-fighting and tried to help her self-esteem issues a lot, despite being far more buxom than Noel could ever hope to be. Mami later joins in her session, and Rushuna has also been teaching her about genuine smiles rather than smiles to cover one's issues.
    • After realizing what Vergil did to Noel, Rushuna comforts her, saying that she's not an unworthy addition to the pantheon, and has decided that Vergil will pay for hurting her, never forgiving him. What's worse is that he seeks strength, which reminded her too much of the Jester. Vergil has nothing but disgust for her for defending Noel and having endless faith in everyone.
  • Whenever she's busy, she leaves the Gun Kata class to Coyote Starrk as a substitute to train them. She's quite impressed with his skills, even if they are a little more… destructive than what she's comfortable with. She's also been helping him with his desire to find more friends and lazy habits.
  • Rushuna is delighted that there are other deities striving for a world where everyone smiles. Yuya and Yuzu are fascinated that her ultimate battle strategy is super effective even in a world where guns cause fear while Rushuna is amazed that they have learned to fight for everyone's EGAO from Yuya's father Yushou Sakaki, though it takes a while and some trials for Yuya to fully understand it. The doctor Emu Hojo is happy that another person who values smiles exists although he is a bit nervous when it comes to Rushuna's healing skills. Wander and Sylvia find a lot of common ground with her like traveling around places and meeting and changing people along the way. Even Miyuki Hoshizora befriended her for sharing the same ideals of happiness for everyone.
    • Pinkie Pie could not believe she hasn't noticed Rushuna until now, and they got along swimmingly with how much they want to see everybody smile. Though Rushuna would prefer the party pony be… a little more sensitive of others' feelings; throwing parties isn't everybody's cup of tea that would lead to smiles.
  • Has met other gunslingers outside of the Gunslinger Septet. John Marston is reminded of Bonnie MacFarlane when he meets Rushuna due to both being cheerful blonde girls in wild west settings. Lucky Luke and Roland Deschain are impressed at her skills but also respect her wish to not fight let alone with guns. Roland even warned her of Randall Flagg, who aims to spread chaos just by appearing at anywhere which Rushuna agrees to look out for. Jesse McCree once hit on her at a bar, but once he gets to know her he has nothing but respect and admiration for her dedication to protect everyone and changing villains for the better which McCree feels that is the justice he has been seeking. The Lone Ranger is also impressed at her shooting skills and philosophy, which perfectly aligns with his; together along with their respective heralds, they dispatch numerous enemies in the Pantheon.
    • Hol Horse also has hit on her once but Rushuna has heard of him being a mercenary who has no qualms with taking lives for a paycheck or with working with someone as vile as J. Geil as long as they serve as his backup, giving her a bad feeling. The rest of their encounter is rather weird; Hol Horse then summon his revolver Stand, Emperor... which Rushuna can't even see and shoot out of his hands due to not being a Stand user. Other reasons Hol Horse can't properly fight her is that he Wouldn't Hit a Girl, his aim is terrible despite having numerous advantages from his Stand unless his target is unimportant to his current attention and she is too busy dodging while laughing at his failures. Humiliated, Hol Horse fled and Rushuna left amused from this bizarre meeting.
      Rushuna: Pffthahahaha! Your weapon is pointing your finger at someone! You're so funny! Ahahaha!
      Hol Horse: Dammit, hold still! *shoots and misses*
      Rushuna: *sidesteps* Hahahaha! I don't know how you did that but it's not working!
    • Much like Hol Horse, Yosemite Sam is also seeking to duel Rushuna. They did and unsurprisingly, Rushuna won. Since then, he has been itching for a rematch against her, seeing that he keeps losing to Lucky Luke and Vash.
    • Relatedly, she has disagreements with Revy, Rattlesnake Jake and Erron Black. Revy is often dismissive of others and their needs, only wanting her rewards, Jake will kill his targets yet he does have a code of honor and Black find her his ideal kind of woman (girls with guns), not helped by the fact that he too will kill for money. Rushuna vows to erase their will to cause violence, which sadly neither of them wanted to let go.
    • Vincent Godfrey is someone Rushuna cannot tolerate. He kills adventurers on a regular basis (she is one), he constantly backstabs and is too crazy beyond recognition; he can even be considered the Evil Counterpart to Rushuna and the Gunslinger Septet in general. Rushuna is aware she cannot erase his will from fighting, because he is past that point for a very long time.
  • Being a force for peace, Rushuna has befriended with Lacus Clyne, Relena Darlian and Nunnally Lamperouge as they too wanted a world with no violence and are naturally pacifists, much like her superior Lady Tenshi. They are also impressed at the fact that she has exceptional marksmanship yet chose to disarm her enemies instead; Rushuna humbly accept their compliment and even offered to defend them during diplomatic meetings. Since she also treats everyone with kindness and turned her enemies into friends, she also got along swimmingly with Mai Tokiha and Nanoha Takamachi.
  • A notable trait of hers is that she is seen bathing really often, even showing a lot of enthusiasm for it. She is even seen bathing with fellow Fanservice bringers Mai Shiranui, Kasumi and Yoko Littner; Kasumi finds a lot of common ground with Rushuna in politeness and abilities, Mai is amazed that those who lost their will to fight gets to be squished by her (Rushuna) boobs and Yoko is impressed that she sniped everyone's hands with just a revolver. Rushuna even joins Yoko for wolfing down during buffets at the House of Food, since they are Big Eaters.
  • Has given encouragement to Shanoa by declaring her smile to be as gorgeous as her back, and Chihiro Fujisaki by promising to protect his smile just like what Yuya and Emu did and supporting his journey to find his strength. Shanoa is flattered by her words and take them to heart while Chihiro is grateful and happy that he befriended another trustworthy person who also believes in him.
  • Reaper and Widowmaker are enemies the Smiling Senshi is looking out for. Reaper being a Malevolent Masked Man reminds her of the power-hungry Jester and he is also affiliated with Godfrey while Widowmaker is a Cold Sniper who currently lacks empathy for her targets. She has a better time with Tracer, who also had a hard time with the villainous two and told her that they used to be good people. With this knowledge, Rushuna joins her in stopping their schemes while hoping that they will change for the better due to her beliefs.
  • She is saddened and disappointed that those like Melkor and Yuki Terumi want to stay evil and do unspeakable actions, and is also infuriated at Terumi for not only riling her up, but also threatening her friends as well. Melkor is wary of her ultimate battle strategy, which diminishes his numbers and is just as effective as Wander's friendliness. Killers like the Wild Hunt and the Brave Companions are also on her enemies list since she doesn't take losses of lives too well given that in one continuity, her friend Koto was killed in a strike by a Juttensen assassin.
    • Social darwinism is a philosophy Rushuna disagrees given that the Jester believes so, thus Charles zi Britannia and Albert Wesker are such like-minded people she needs to stop. Prime Minister Honest also proves to be someone so unbearable though luckily for her, he has a slim chance of seeing the error of his evil ways though everyone else, ESPECIALLY Night Raid say otherwise.
  • Is glad that the Phantom Thieves of Hearts are giving villains the change of heart they needed, though she also finds their methods questionable. The thieves themselves are amazed of her ultimate battle strategy and its effectiveness, prompting them (well, mostly Ren, Morgana and Makoto) to consider following her methods as an option since they too opposed killing anyone (unless they're Shadows).
  • Not to be confused with Souji Tendou. They have met and got along swimmingly, with Rushuna enjoying his cooking and Souji being amazed at her skills. In a sparring match, Rushuna knows her speed is outmatched by his due to the ZECT system granted to him but luckily Souji wouldn't push an offer to one; he is a Kamen Rider, after all. Also not to be confused for Karen Tendo as well, though they too have met and got along for also having unwavering optimism and a penchant for bathing; Karen even joins Rushuna for such.
  • "Um... would you like to join me for a bath?"
  • Also found in Physical Attractiveness, where she is seen bathing very often.

  • At the age of three, Ryo lost his parents in a plane crash after it was shot down in Central America, leaving him as the sole survivor and instilling in him a terrible fear of riding planes. He was subsequently raised in a war-torn village and, as a result, has no knowledge of his prior identity. To survive, he joined a guerrilla band in a civil war, learning how to handle weapons, close combat and warfare tactics, proving himself to be very good at being a soldier. During the civil war, he met another Japanese man named Shin Kaibara, who became his adoptive father.
    • After losing comrades during the war, his father figure injected him with a drug called Angel Dust, whose side-effects and withdrawal symptoms Ryo unexpectedly survived, a feat only one other person would replicate. Becoming a mindless killing machine, Ryo was dropped in the enemy front and killed all the soldiers in a military platoon. After the rebels group was disbanded, Ryo went to a rehabilitation clinic in the US to cure himself from the angel dust side effects and addiction. However, Ryo noticed that the effects of the drug didn't vanish over time, allowing him to keep his enhanced strength, speed and reflexes granted by the angel dust. Still, by the time everything was over, Ryo came out of it as a Shell-Shocked Veteran with near-crippling depression, daddy issues and and a whole lot of other problems that he keeps hidden with his perverted, goofy exterior.
    • Eventually, Ryo returned to Tokyo and formed the City Hunter Detective Agency, becoming a "sweeper", a sort of bodyguard/private detective who provides protection and law enforcement that the police cannot. His cases begin when troubled persons go to the Shinjuku Station and leave a brief note underneath the letters "XYZ" on a certain chalkboard. If they are lucky, and generally beautiful women, he accepts the job.
    • Ryo was initially partnered with ex-cop Hideyuki Makimura, who would often hire his services for various tasks before eventually resigning from the force to join Ryo on his sweeper business. After Hideyuki's death, his adoptive sister Kaori took his place as Ryo's new partner.
  • Ryo entered the Pantheon when one of its denizens traveled to Shinjuku Station in his world and left a note requesting his help with instructions that led him to a gateway which allowed him to enter the Pantheon. He subsequently greeted by Kenshiro, Son Goku, Joseph Joestar and Pegasus Seiya, whom he had met during the very first time that their worlds crossed over. Rushuna Tendou, who was also present, revealed that she had placed the note for him at their request, as they knew that Ryo would likely accept the request if it was made by a beautiful woman. After Ryo briefly flirted with and got rejected by Rushuna, he was informed of an upcoming conflict which involved Revolver Ocelot and that they were gathering as many expert sharpshooters as they could to match him. Ryo accepted their offer to join them and, after the conflict was resolved, he was formally ascended.
  • Ryo ended up participating in another merging of the worlds, during which he briefly got mind controlled and fought against, among others, Vegeta. After getting defeated and returning to normal, Ryo was aknowledged by Vegeta as a skilled warrior and joined Jump Force to stop the merger of their worlds. During this time, he also met and befriended Killua Zoldyck and Himura Kenshin, impressing both of them with his fighting prowess. He also flirted with pretty much every female fighter, from Boa Hancock (who, predictably, rejected him) to Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, who proved surprisingly susceptible to his advances. Likewise, he became enemies with Dio Brando, who mocked Ryo for trying to shoot him but was nonetheless impressed by Ryo's courage to face him.
  • Having been a child soldier, he quickly managed to bond with others who experienced similar circumstances and hardships like Gray Fox, Raiden, Gunvolt, Eren Yeager and Sousuke Sagara, who were able to see past his goofy Casanova Wannabe persona and recognize him for what he really is, a heavily depressed man, just on the verge of becoming a Death Seeker, with his partner's presence and his desire to protect Shinjuku being the only things keeping him from eating his gun. They frequently provide him with moral support whenever he hangs out with them.
  • Ryo is on decent terms with Niko Bellic and John Wick, both of whom have similarly experienced trauma in the past and have tried to move on from it. He also became friends with Arya Stark and Edward J. Plunkett, as Arya is similarly a hitman with a soft spot for certain people while Edward is a revolver-wielding Chivalrous Pervert.
  • Ryo is also on good terms with Jiraiya and Master Roshi, who share his perverted tendencies while still being fearsome warriors when they get serious. Both of them recognized Ryo's past trauma and tend to keep his spirit up whenever they hang out together.
  • He drew the attention of Conan Edogawa and Ran Mouri due to sounding like Ran's father Kogoro Mouri. Both of them strongly disapprove of his attitude towards murder and frequently encourage him to show more mercy, though their influence on him has proven rather limited.
  • Ryo quickly got along with fellow gunslingers such as Vash the Stampede, Rushuna Tendou, Jesse McCree, John Marston, Roland of Gilead, Lucky Luke, The Man with No Name and Bette Noir. Whenever they engage in marksmanship competitions, he likes to show off his specialty, the "one-hole shot", a series of shots that all land in exactly the same spot on the target. He also likes to regale them with stories such as how he once won a duel with an empty gun by drawing the gun and throwing it at his foe's head faster than the opponent could draw his gun.
  • Unsurprisingly, he strongly opposes Solidus Snake and Sundowner due to the two of them both being responsible for turning children into child soldiers. He also dislikes Hol Horse and Barracuda. Having learned of Hol Horse through his friendship with Joseph Joestar, Ryo typically mocks him for his terrible aim whenever they meet. On the other hand, his distaste for Barracuda stems from the fact that he's similarly a former soldier but, unlike Ryo, discarded his humanity in favor a deadly psychotic mercenary.
  • He respects both the Saint of Killers and Landon Rickets. Due to his own habit of being quite ruthless to his enemies, Ryo and the Saint managed to develop an understanding with each other. On the other hand, Landon's protection of the settlement of Chuparosa reminds Ryo of his own fight for Shinjuku and its residents, something the two managed to bond over.
  • Having been beaten up by Kaori's Hyperspace Mallet on numerous occasions, Ryo is understandably quite afraid of those who wield similar mallets, like Amy Rose and Mr. Game & Watch. While neither of them have actually attacked Ryo at any point, he still generally makes sure that they're not around whenever he acts perverted.
  • He was surprised to run into Jackie Chan, who had portrayed him on one occasion. The two quickly managed to get along and have occasionally been seen sparring together.

  • Complicated Relationship: Garrus Vakarian
  • Enemies: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, all Chaotix members, Sally Acorn, Rotor Walrus, Kamina, Simon
  • Nack ascended after Sonic finally remembered him from a long time ago. Needless to say, Dr. Eggman was happy to call on his services as a distraction/obstacle for Sonic and friends yet again. And Nack is more than happy to do so as long as the pay's good.
  • This Nack, interestingly, seems to be a combination of his two most well-known incarnations: SEGA's and Archie's. As such, his portfolio is drawn from both aspects but only as much as they converge into his divine title ("blasters" can be considered kiddified guns, after all).
  • Due to his alias, he has unfortunately gained the attention of various snipers in the Pantheon. Yoko Littner, Lockon Stratos, and The Sniper just to name a few. Fang doesn't mind this rivalry. In fact, he revels in it
    • He has oggled and flirted with Yoko, Sniper Wolf, Sinon, Lynette, and Ryoubi with varying effects. Yoko was disgusted but didn't mind using her attractiveness against him. Sniper Wolf was initially confused but upon learning that he was technically half-wolf (somehow), she became endeared to him (doesn't stop her from trying to kill him, though). Sinon was very distressed and flustered, but eventually resolved herself to considering him a worthy rival after seeing him in action. Lynette was rather flattered but wanted to just be friends (and rivals when necessary). And Ryoubi....she actually doesn't mind him and actually lets him leer at her when he's not on the job.
    • Lockon and Nack first encountered each other while cruising around in their respective machines, much to the surprise of the former as the latter managed to easily fall into pace with his Gundam. Lockon then tried to befriend Nack after looking into him (and noting his title of kid-friendly guns). To his credit, the two did spend a short time talking though ultimately it ended with Nack pointing his "blaster" at Lockon and telling him to get lost or he would shoot him. Lockon still tried to befriend him, only to get an energy shot to the leg for his troubles. Since then their relationship has been strained, at best, but they have a rivalry going nonetheless.
    • The Sniper views him as a professional rival due to both being mercenaries, though Nack's general personality does remind him of himself. Both tend to be all business unless something transpires to make things personal, both like getting paid for what they do best, and most of all - they have a similar fashion sense. The only reason they're not outright friends is because they both know that they may just have to kill each other one day, but they get along well enough anyway.
    • Golgo and Cyrus don't really have an opinion of him, though the former reminds him of his silent but stalwart teammate Bark. There's a bit of professional respect, yes, but they don't really show it even the rare times they interact.
  • Treasure hunting. Nack has tried multiple times to break into the Treasures to claim what it contained. Fortunately, the security is too tight so he hasn't been able to infiltrate it no matter how many times he has tried. It's basically a routine thing for him at this point.
    • However his Sonic the Comic self is more successful because of his shrinking and growing technology, as well knowing when to fold it.
    • He has met and chatted with various other treasure hunters in the Pantheon. Indy doesn't really like him much, Lara is annoyed at his passes at her, Fang just ignores him, and Yuna is amazed by how much of a good shot he is. Firefights have become commonplace in Nack's life because of this.
    • Nack eventually got around to meeting Rouge the Bat, who is more-or-less currently playing the role of treasure hunter in the Sonicverse. Nack really likes this particular competition with her and part of it involves taking verbal jabs at each other.
  • Nack is also quite capable of defending himself in close-combat, notably utilizing a fighting style involving his tail and his legs as well as his Sonic The Comic version's shrinking and growing technology. He prefers to keep himself at a distance, though, as that means less chance of getting hurt.
  • He threw the entire House of Beasts for a loop due to being a "wolf-weasel" (half-wolf, half-weasel). Many of the animal handlers of that house questioned him about how he came to be, to which he simply shrugged, hopped on the Marvelous Queen, and flew off at top speed.
    • Nack later met a group of actual weasels known as the Toon Patrol. He does like working with them from time-to-time, though he does have a few misgivings about them.
  • Despite his professionalism, Nack has unfortunately gained the attention of a particular vigilante: Garrus. It doesn't help that the latter is also a crack shot, but what makes matters worse is that Nack once tried to take something precious to him. Even if it was mercenary work, Garrus won't forgive him and has vowed to take him down no matter what.
  • Nack is also currently wanted by the House of Law and Justice after apparently trying (and failing) to steal something highly dangerous from the Treasury for Dr. Eggman.
