    Coyote Starrk 
Coyote Starrk, God of Gunslingers (The Primera Espada)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bbs_starkk_resurrecion.png
  • Has mixed opinions about Lucifer. While they can easily have a civilized conversation and he doesn't see the Lightbringer as a necessarily bad person, he disagrees with his philosophy that power is everything in the world, pointing out that it was his own great power that lead him to being alone.
    • Lucifer agreed that was indeed the case, but then noted that Starrk once said if being weak was impossible, he wanted allies just as strong as he was. As it happens, there IS an organization with members who have more than enough power to handle Starrk's presence. More than that, it's one that's rather informal, all things considered; Starrk would have plenty of time to laze around. After a long pause, Starrk said he'd consider it.
    • Sometime afterwards, he was reportedly seen among the members of GUAC, lounging about at meetings. In actuality, under that lazy demeanor, he's there spying on things out of request from Mami and by extension Madoka, as well as trying to get close to Homura. He does feel some regret about the deception though.
  • He sees the Great Upheaval as a similarly conflicting thing. While he has come to know Madoka through his time with Mami as a good person, he also personally sees Homura's actions as those of someone truly desperate to protect a friend, however misguided that desire might be. As such, he's reluctant to stand alongside the Sisterhood in the eventual battle against the GUAC in the Pantheonic Rebellion.
    • On the other hand, he has absolutely no problems battling the GUAL upon learning of YHVH's plot to kill Madoka. In his eyes, that falls under defending and taking revenge for a friend, something he can get behind. To that end, he has signed up with the "Deep Strike Front".
  • Surprised many members of the Pantheon, including Night Raid, when he became allies with Esdeath. They ended up meeting at one of the GUAC meetings and had a battle at the request of Lucifer, during which the The Empire's Strongest found herself enraptured with Starrk's power. Afterwards, they talked and Esdeath was shocked to learn that not only did he not care for his power, he secretly wished he could be weaker. Starrk originally expected his words to drive the General away in disgust, but to his surprise she instead claimed that as it would be a sin for one such as he to lose his power, and so declared herself his ally so as to make sure he would have motivation to stay strong. Starrk took it in stride.
    • This friendship resulted in him getting invited by Esdeath to join her and her Jaeger comrades Seryu and Saibot on a team created by King Bradley to help the Homunculi from Amestris. He decided it would be less cumbersome to deal with their occasional orders and potentially take relevant GUAC- and GUAE-related information back to Mami than to fight a bitter Esdeath on a weekly basis and get put on the GUAC's shit list. Surprisingly, he ended up finding others he got along decently with on the team aside from Esdeath and Seryu; namely Gluttony (when Lust isn't dragging him along), Re-Class (who sort of reminds him of Lilynette), and Wo-Class (who he can be most lazy around as long as he doesn't get in the water).
  • Used to be in the House of Power, but being challenged to way too many fights for his liking there would cut into his nap time. Also had another place in the House of Emotion for a time, but Lilynette found it too dreary.

  • Respected by: Josiah "Jed" Bartlet
  • Who says the Iron Man suits are exclusive to Tony Stark? Enter Colonel James Rhodes, a United States soldier who once served in the The Vietnam War, he first met Tony after he saved Rhodey from a helicopter crash. The results after were Rhodey and Stark becoming friends with the two of them defeating the Viet Cong and Rhodey taking up a job as Stark's personal pilot, being one of the few who knew of Tony's identity as Iron Man and becoming the chief aviation officer. That is until Tony was dealing with alcoholism and battles against the Iron Monger when Rhodey took up the Iron Man mantle and soon established the West Coast Avengers, though he soon gave up being Iron Man due to having difficulties with the suit via his helmet being calibrated specifically for Stark, hence causing Rhodey headaches and being heavily injured by a bomb attack from Stane.
    • However, he would return to duty soon, alongside receiving a modified Iron Man suit equipped with all sorts of weaponry ranging from gatling guns and missiles to flamethrowers and laser-firing tech known as the Variable Threat Response Battle Suit. Designed for all-out battles, Rhodey took the suit for himself, christened himself War Machine and went on to become an incredibly formidable superhero in his own right.
  • Initially a follower of Roy Mustang, only to be moved to Tony's temple as one of his two heralds after a certain incident, Rhodey really made his mark in the Pantheon after displaying his abilities to its residents and how his time as a superhero and as Tony's friend has made him the man that he is now. Even more impressive was when he managed to stop an attack carried out by the Green Goblin who was intending to bomb a building in the House of Commerce. His most striking feature and what distinguishes him from Iron Man, his never-ending supplement of weaponry was what made War Machine eligible to join the Pantheonic ranks, representing More Dakka.
  • Being a part of the military and for his representing trope, War Machine is undoubtedly one of the more physically offensive and destructive superheroes in the Pantheon. Most of the House of Weapons are very intrigued by his armour and what he is capable. Unfortunately, Rhodey doesn't have much time flashing his weapons to fans, instead spending more time in military services and preparing himself for future threats. Being a soldier means being prepared after all.
  • Given that he was an adept Ace Pilot, Rhodey made quick friends with Hal Jordan and, while not too phased about the Lantern Corps, was nonetheless impressed about how Hal was able to utilise his and lead the Green Lanterns several times. While Rhodey isn't interested in the rings, he states he's more than welcome to come help out Hal and the Green Lantern Corps at any time.
  • Given his military prowess the Grand United Alliance of Good were eager to have him as one of their major military assets, which Rhodey was content with, provided that they keep a good promise of the military being provided with good support just as much of Rhodey getting weaponry upgrades. The GUAG have complied thanks to Rhodey's dedication to justice and protection. Still, it wouldn't hurt if he could get some combat training from various deities.
  • On one occasion, Frank Castle took hold of an old War Machine suit and used to fight against crime, with predictable results given the fact that he's a vigilante who isn't hesitant to kill. Rhodey eventually showed up to convince Frank to give the suit up, which he does given the amount of respect Frank has for Rhodey who reciprocated. The two have been good allies since.
  • Was surprised to see that there was someone who formerly held his trope in the form of Laguna Loire. However, with Rhodey coming in full-time, Laguna was forced to pass on his title, feeling that Rhodey may be better suited to the title. Rhodey did, however, decide to keep Laguna by nominating him as his High Priest. By doing so meant that Laguna was still in the Pantheon, though he's not as prominent as he used to be. Still, Rhodey has the feeling that he and Laguna can be pretty good partners on the battlefield.
  • He became fast friends with Heero Yuy and Trowa Barton. Considering they're all skilful pilots with adequate experiences in War, Rhodey was impressed to see them utilize Alpha Strikes on their opponents to get a situation done, alongside bombarding them with as many weapons as possible. He also sympathizes with Yuy and Barton's age during their battles, especially given that Heero accidentally killed a little girl, prompting him to become reserved and quiet and Trowa forgetting about himself and his sister and using an alias to compensate.
    • He also has some sense of camaraderie with the 501st Joint Fighter Wing. Being soldiers who persevered through dedicated teamwork and friendship, Rhodey has a measure of respect for the girls. He was thinking of having Stark present them Iron Man suits as a sign of goodwill, though the girls respectfully declined. Still, wherever the 501st JFW are fighting, Rhodey is more than welcome to tag along.
  • He was once killed by Thanos. Of course, Rhodey returned from the dead to carry on his superheroics as usual. That said, he's become more aware of cosmic deities, especially Darkseid, given that not only does he resemble Thanos, but is much more malicious to boot. He'll probably be upgrading his weapons further and reach out to advanced sciences for that if it means taking on the Lord of Apokolips and other similar foes. Oh, and Rhodey hasn't forgotten about Thanos either.
    • Another thing to clarify was that he wasn't happy about the fact that there was another superhero civil war that was influenced by his death in some way. He does recall the last time that sort of thing happened and how disastrous it was for all combatants.
  • Has a sort of rivalry going on with Genos, though both remain on friendly terms with one another regardless. A battle simulation conducted by Wiz and Boomstick came out with the conclusion of Rhodey being able to near-effortlessly defeat Genos. Ever since then, Genos has been striving to become stronger and equip himself with better tech in the hopes of becoming a stronger and more capable hero.
  • He might be one of the more capable beings in the Pantheon to take on the Grineer. Rhodey was rather concerned about the fact that they're an invasive army who go out of their way to kill and plunder out of hatred and superiority. To top it off, they're no stranger to pulverizing their enemies with as much weaponry as possible. If anything, the Grineer is one of the reasons why Rhodey (With Stark's permission of course) would sometimes offer Iron Man suits to his allies and other military personnel to hive them a fighting chance.
  • At some point, he rechristened himself into an American version of Iron Man, aptly named the Iron Patriot. However, that position was first taken by Norman Osborn when he was leading the Dark Avengers. Rhodey apparently went on a brief stint with this identity someplace else which is the reason why some remember him for having an Iron Man suit styled after the Star-Spangled banner. Still, given what Norman really is, Rhodey is willing to strip the Iron Patriot identity from him. Not that Norman is bothered by it, as he's more preferable to be the Green Goblin instead.
Little late for that. If I were still... Human. I'd have lost count of how many I've killed. But I can't forget anything, now... And I can't stop seeing everything. Every woman they've raped... Every child they've shot... I hate them. God help me, I hate them. Maybe someday someone'll hate me just as much. But I don't care. All I know... Is that today... The world needs a War Machine.

    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)
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 Song: Bullet Dance normally, becomes 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, 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.

  • Shuichi was ascended into the Pantheon after he heard of the presence of his Arch-Enemy Takeshi Asakura so they can finally settle the score once and for all.
  • Shinji and Ren had a mixed reaction on his ascension. Shuichi feels the same due to their shared experiences back in the Mirror World. Nevertheless, these three men join forces whenever they're dealing with the same foes such as The Kurgan and Gleeman Vox.
  • Surprisingly, he ascended alongside another gunslinger in the form of Shino Asada. After getting to knowing her, he was impressed with her skills as a markswoman while she is playing GGO, because of that, he might try to play this kind of game with her just for fun. In the game, they have a sort of mentor-protege relationship.
    • They also had the same reasons why they ascend in the first place because they wanted to help Mitsuzane Kureshima, also known as Kamen Rider Ryugen, in his upcoming battles while Kitaoka also wanted the Armored Rider to be his apprentice so he can train him to improve his aiming skills.
  • Has made allies with the likes of Mami Tomoe, Yoko Littner, Mana Tatsumiya, Lockon Stratos, and Noel Vermillion, because of their preference of weaponry is the same as he does. They often seen practicing firing accuracy with their guns in the House of Profession.
  • It seems that both Kitaoka and Phoenix Wright can't get along because of their different prospective on their jobs as attorneys. However Phoenix was surprised that Kitaoka also hates Manfred's guts for being a bigger worse attorney than him. Not to mention that his overall stint reminding him of how he used to be before Kitaoka became a bit kinder to Shinji.
  • He also gained and ire with the likes of Ryoma Sengoku because his stint as a creator of a rider belt for his own agenda reminding him of Shiro Kanzaki, although Sengoku's actions as an amoral scientist is far worse than Kanzaki's intentions.
  • He also made enemies with the Trollkaiger due to them committing malicious acts in the pantheon. This also extends his hate with its members like Basco and Terumi since they're completely despicable being that must be stopped from their crimes.
  • Has recently placed Gauron and Ali Al-Saachez in his hit list because of them being terrorist who committed unforgivable acts and they're actions are comparable to Asakura. Not to mention that Saachez is also one of Asakura's allies too.
  • Has often visits the House of Health and Diseases for some daily check-ups due to an incurable disease that he carries and it gives him disadvantages during his battles.

    Vincent Godfrey 
Lord Vincent Godfrey, God of Shooting in Every Direction
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/godfrey_9.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Guns
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Ambition Is Evil, Commits Suicide before the Gilneans bring him to justice, Came Back Wrong, Casting a Shadow, Chronic Backstabbing Disorder, Evil Old Folks, The Gunslinger, Guns Akimbo, Mage Marksman, Pragmatic Villainy, Smug Snake
  • Domains: Betrayal, Racism, Manipulation, Murder, Undead
  • Allies: Hagatha the Witch, Gul'dan (If Begrudginly), Harth Stonebrew, Gabriel Reyes/Reaper, The Crimson Court
  • Enemies: King Genn Greymane, Sylvanas Windrunner, Werewolves, The Hunter, King Leoric, The House of Justice
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Black Mage
  • Lord Vincent Godfrey was a Gilnean nobleman who had a lot of influence in the politics of the Kingdom of Gilneas. Godfrey had an intense hatred for the Worgen and wanted nothing but to wipe them out, but once he found out about that King Greymane was inflicted with the curse, he staged a coup to have him assassinated by the forsaken only to his plan fail and commited suicide to avoid the wrath of the people of Gilneas. Then he was resurrected by the Forsaken, where Godfrey aided them in breaking into Gilneas and seizing control of it. It just so happened that Godfrey had no intention to remain loyal to Sylvanas and so briefly killed her and fled. It was said that later Godfrey was slain by adventurers but his status as a traitor and a backstabber haven't gone unnoticed, much so that to his misfortune the Pantheon saw him fit to ascend as an undead.
  • Thanks to his resurrection and later ascension, Godfrey has retained all his powers and magic, which he found useful. Unfortunately he his sanity was even more shattered and Godfrey is nothing from than a wicked gunman with an intense hatred for Werewolves. He swore to cull them all one by one, including Greymane who he was not surprised was already an established deity. He is glad that at least that the mut that is Darius Crowley is nowhere to be found.
  • He was not happy to learn about the presence of Sylvanas, who like Greymane, she wants to destroy Godfrey for shooting her in the back. Godfrey has been cautious when it comes to the Dark Lady, since after becoming Warchief she has gained a lot of powerful allies and she is not an easy target anymore so he has tried to ally himself with opposing undead who don't agree with her. One of those ended up being Leoric the Skeleton King, who dismissed Godfrey as a worthless traitor and almost murdered him on the spot. He thinks that Leoric is just like Greymane, only that his people were wise enough to get rid of him and he won't let the Skeleton live that down.
  • Some say that Godfrey was summoned by Hagatha the Witch once she set foot in the pantheon. In the past he struck a deal with the Witch to exact revenge on Darius Crowley, but the Worgen Commander was prepared and with a furious barrage from his canon, Godfrey stood no chance. After that event, Warlock have been able to summon Godfrey to get rid of their enemies, which the undead has proven to be quite effective at. However, he doesn't like working for Gul'dan at all, he might be worse than Sylvanas and that's saying something coming from Godfrey.
  • Surprisingly, Godfrey found a lot of common ground with Reaper, formerly known as Gabriel Reyes. Both are men that have betrayed their close ones in the past and have been undead entities ever since (Although it's a lot more ambiguous in Reyes' case). They also dual wield guns and Death Blossom is very similar to Godfrey's signature move. He was asked if he was interested in joining Talon but Godfrey declined saying he for the moment is not looking for any long term partnership.
  • Some people initially confused him with Black Mage. Surprisingly enough they sometimes work together, but both being very arrogant people they sometimes are at each other throats. Godfrey has stated that if it weren't for him being actually quite useful for him, he would have already shot him in the back twenty times.
  • While the life of a nobleman is a thing of the past, that status is what got him contacted by the Crimsom Court. The vampiric deities heard that Godfrey was planning to erradicate the werewolf deities and they decided to aid him in his mission, provided he would sway Hagatha the Witch to their side. In a mysterious display of loyalty, Godfrey was true to his word and brought Hagatha to meet the Crimsom Court. They also wanted Godfrey to taste their blood but he abstained, he is not entirely loyal to them anyway.
  • His most common activity is killing adventurers, he can actually make quick work of anyone who goes unprepared. For example, he wasn't a big fan of the Hunter and they actually challenged Godfrey to a duel to see if he was a tough as he claimed. The undead has defeated the Hunter numerous times, to the point that he likes to taunt them about how they are a dissapointing excuse of an adventurer. Of course, the Hunter has also beaten Godfrey quite a lot of times as well, it's just that he never takes count of those victories anyway.
  • His traitorous past has not gone unnoticed, the House of Justice has tried to imprison him for attempting regicide and commiting suicide to avoid the wrath of Gilneas falling onto him. Some may say that undeath is enough of a punishment for Godfrey but he seems to not care anymore about his previous life.
  • As a general rule, Godfrey is not to be trusted so easily. He could easily shoot you in the back the moment he has no use for you. He was regarded as a rotten coward even before he actually became rotten for real.
  • "This will be a mercy killing!"

  • 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, Badass Beard, 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.

  • Allies: Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Dinah Laurel Lance/Black Canary, Carter Hall/Hawkman, Virgil Hawkins/Static, Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning, Jimmy Olsen, Nathan Summers/Cable, Neena Thurman/Domino, Vash the Stampede, Roland of Gilead, Lucky Luke, Rushuna Tendou, Gunvolt, Jesse McCree
  • Enemies: High Councilor Kal-El/Regime Superman, General Zod, Homelander, Black Noir, The Crime Syndicate of America, Lex Luthor, Lord Recluse, Dante of the Deep Forest, Orochimaru, Zouken Matou, Master Xehanort, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Lobo, Erron Black
  • Conflicting Opinion: Clark Kent/Superman, Asa Martin/Samaritan, Marcus Cole/Statesman, Metro Man, Toshinori Yagi/All Might
  • Complicated Relationship: Qubit
  • Opposes: The Plutonian
  • A member of the Paradigm and Gilgamos' wife, Bette Noir was one of the very first superheroes to reveal themselves to the world. With her uncanny aim and customized bullets, she used her guns to fight crime and defend the world. After the Plutonian snapped, Bette hid the fact that she had a wax candle bullet that could kill him, because doing so would have revealed her affair with him. Feeling guilty for having allowed millions to die to cover her infidelity, she attempted to redeem herself by engaging in a plan to restrain and kill the Plutonian. However, Qubit saved the Plutonian by teleporting the bullet away after Bette shot it, much to her and the Paradigm's shock and disapproval.
    • After the Plutonian was captured and taken away by an alien race called the Vespa, Bette gave up on heroics, shacked up in a Beverly Hills mansion and lived an extravagant and hedonistic lifestyle while awaiting death. When the Plutonian returned to Earth and found her, he unexpectedly spared her life and made her a reluctant member of his group. Having lost hope, she attempted to commit suicide, but was saved by the Plutonian.
    • When she attempted another suicide attempt by trying to fall off a building, Bette was ultimately possessed by the supervillain Modeus, who intended to use her body to seduce the Plutonian. After the Plutonian killed Bette's body and Qubit trapped Modeus within his mind, they used a gravity-warping remnant of Bette to scrub the Earth's atmosphere of radiation, thus saving all life on the planet and allowing Qubit to scatter Plutonian's Eleosan essence across the multiverse and parallel dimensions as a way of redeeming him.
  • Bette ascended at the request of Qubit, who was hoping that the Pantheon would provide her with another chance to be a hero. Bette's reaction upon seeing him again was incredibly mixed, especially when he informed her that the Plutonian was also present in the Pantheon. However, when he informed her of how he had used a remnant of her body to save humanity and subsequently scattered the Plutonian's essence, she felt a massive sense of relief at learning that she had posthumously helped save humanity, though she continued to feel guilty for not having killed the Plutonian sooner.
  • Due to their past history, Bette holds the distinction of being the only person that the Plutonian somewhat cares for. As a result, he tends to leave her alone unless she actively goes after him. Due to the presence of genuine heroes who are either as strong or even stronger than the Plutonian, Bette generally feels safe and secure in the knowledge that, if the Plutonian tries to go on a rampage again, he will be stopped with relative ease.
  • She quickly managed to befriend Green Arrow and Black Canary, as she noticed that she resembles them. Similarly, she became friends with Hawkman, Static, Black Lightning and Jimmy Olsen due to each of them reminding her of her teammates in the Paradigm.
  • She's on good terms with fellow gun-wielding superheroes Cable and Domino, though she's made it clear that she generally prefers to use non-lethal ammo against enemies. She's also friends with gunslingers such as Vash the Stampede, Roland of Gilead, Lucky Luke and Rushuna Tendou. She especially managed to bond with Vash, Luke and Rushuna due to their aversion to killing and preference for disarming their enemies instead. Every now and then, Bette has allowed them to try out some of her special non-lethal bullets to see how well they could perform with them. She also occasionally engages with all of them in friendly marksmanship competitions, although the fact that she manipulates gravity to guide her bullets, has resulted in them occasionally remarking that she's "cheating".
  • The revelation that she was capable of becoming a Physical Goddess with powers even greater than that of the Plutonian through only a few minor chemical adjustments to her frontal lobe came as a massive surprise to Bette, though she was also very disturbed to learn that Modeus had used her powers while possessing her body in order to restrain and have sex with the Plutonian. Because Qubit possesses all the knowledge of Modeus, he was able to help Bette unlock her full potential and learn how to use her powers. However, due to the fact that using her full power requires her to drain so much energy from distant stars that a star system dies with every punch she lands, she's understandably reluctant to use it and prefers to save it for emergencies.
  • Bette managed to befriend Gunvolt due to him similarly utilizing a variety of specialized darts to tag foes, serving as a conduit for his electrical powers. From standard rapid fire and travelling across the ground and ceiling to redirection and shooting all over the place. She was initially wary of him due to him being a hitman, but warmed to him upon learning that his heart is in the right place and he's willing to stand up against anyone who goes against what he believes in, as well as the fact that he doesn't really take any pleasure in what he does.
  • She's also in friendly terms with Jesse McCree, who saw that Bette had gone through a lot and tried to assure her that she could join him in providing more justice to atone herself, much like himself after his days in Blackwatch.
  • Unsurprisingly, she quickly became enemies with other tyrannical superhumans such as Regime Superman, General Zod, Homelander, Black Noir and the Crime Syndicate of America as a whole. She's somewhat sympathetic towards Regime Superman due to the fact that he's at least well-intentioned. On the other hand, she's particularly appalled by Black Noir, not only because he has a similar codename, but also because he's even more irredeemably depraved and crazy than the Plutonian.
  • She has a strong dislike of evil geniuses such as Lex Luthor and Lord Recluse, who unpleasantly remind her of Modeus. Similarly, her getting possessed by Modeus has resulted in her strongly opposing body snatchers such as Dante of the Deep Forest, Orochimaru and Zouken Matou.
  • She has occasionally battled against Mr. Mxyzptlk and Lobo, who remind her of Orian, a demonic alien hunter with a similarly dark and crude sense of humor. Mr. Mxyzptlk doesn't view her as a threat and typically spends most of their encounters playing pranks on her, while Lobo usually just flirts with her, which generally results in him having to spend some time healing up from her firing one of her high explosive bullets at him.
  • Despite being a fellow gunslinger who also has a few trick bullets of his own, Erron Black did not earn Bette's favour because of his "killing for pay" business model, not to mention that he also hit on her once just because she's a girl with a gun.
  • Bette is understandably uneasy around superheroes similar to the Plutonian, such as Superman, Samaritan, Statesman, Metro Man and All Might. She does, however, try her best to not judge them based on that and regards working with them to be her best chance at redemption.

    Chachamaru Karakuri 
Chachamaru Karakuri, Patron Saint of Handheld Target Designators (Student No. 10, Pupa Somnians/"Dreaming Doll", the Ultimate Lovestruck Megaweapon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_chachamaru_1958.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: her Cat-shaped target desingator for the Al-Iskandariya Orbital Cannon.
  • Alignment: Lawful to Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Adorkable, Cat Girl, Covert Pervert, Daydreaming Android, Friend to All Living Things, Glass Cannon combatant with Swiss Army Appendages and a Kill Sat for a main weapon, and controlled by a cat-shaped targeting device, Ridiculously Human Robot running on Magitek and a Wind-Up Key, Statuesque Sexy Secretary, Yamato Nadeshiko
  • Domains: Combat, Magic, Technology, Weapons
  • Direct Superiors: Negi Springfield (her Teacher-slash-Magistra) and Evangeline A. K. McDowell (her original Master and "co-creator")
  • Allies:
  • Commonality Connection with: Plain Doll and Legion
  • Smash Sisters with: Cammy White, Satellizer El Bridget and Eila Illmatar Juutilainen
  • Enemies: Kane, Tenjuro Banno, Ultron, Nu-13, other evil-aligned Robotic deities
  • More known as the Dark Evangel's closest android servant, Chachamaru's appearance in the Pantheon has raised further speculation from the Council of Shadows as to the former's plans to secretly increase her influence. Contrary to such conspiracy though, the circumstances of her ascension was similar to Mana's; though it was Eva alone who facilitated the same.
  • Many deities were rather skeptic as to whether or not she is worthy of such title, especially seeing the iconic, cat-shaped targeter for the Al-Iskandariya Orbital Satellite. No one complained after she exhibited the cannon's full power against a random Brotherhood of Nod Base, completely obliterating it in the process. This made Kane feel a bit uneasy as the blast reminded him of the GDI Ion Cannon.
  • Usually drops by Eva's realm in the House of Costumes to conduct tea ceremonies with her master, and by her sensei's place at the House of Magic to assist him with his paperwork. Though, some deities do tend to hear some random noises whenever she stays there for extended periods; turns out she screams this way everytime Negi recharges her via Wind-Up Key. And she's rather embarassed about it.
  • Apart from her combat-capable 3-A Classmates who have already ascended before her, she has been seen in combat training with Cammy, Satella, and Eila; moreso the latter as Chachamaru can at least go toe-to-to-toe with the Strike Witch in aerial combat. Some deities tend to misinterpret this as a fighting with herself, especially due to very similar voices.
  • She has apparently found a kindred spirit of sorts with the Geth in the House of Otherness, as both deities had their share of inner conflicts on whether or not robotic beings have a soul. Ditto with Plain Doll as she admires the latter's devotion towards The Hunter, though she also pities her for the occasional abuse she suffers from him.
  • Conversely, she has also set her sights on both Tenjuuro and Ultron: the former because she's apalled at how he corrupts robots like nobody's business (in contrast to how her master Eva cares for her and her sisters); and the latter for not being able to understand humanity as a whole.
    • Ultron, surprisingly, shares such negative sentiment towards her as he tends to see a part of a version of The Vision in her.
  • While Chachamaru sympathizes with Nu-13 as to her getting rejected by Ragna, the fact that the Calamity Trigger has aimed her hatred and rage against everyone in the pantheon, does not sit well with her. Thus, she has made it one of her immediate imperatives to find a way for the bladed deity to accept such fact. Even if she has to use her Pactio Artifact to do it.
  • Her appearance did cause Zero to do a double take, as he was briefly reminded of that time C. C. bought a pair of headphones that looked like mechanical cat ears

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
  • Followers:
  • 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:
  • 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 Children.
    • 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."

    Erron Black 
Erron Black, The God with the Marked Bullet (The Wandering Fool [by Kitana])
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/erron.png
  • Lesser God
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, with True Neutral leanings
  • Theme Song: Gunslinger
  • Portfolio: Showing an Almost Complete Lack of Emotions, Puts His Opponent's Names On a Bullet, Interested in Girls With Guns, Guns Akimbo, Possibly Way Older Than He Appears, Professional Killer, Proud Texan, Mercenary, Breaks Every Single Law of Gun Safety and Physics (But Looks Badass While Doing It)
  • Domains: Guns, Bounty Hunters, Stoicism
  • Current employer: Kotal Kahn
  • Allies: Shang Tsung, Zeref, Ahau Kin, Wario, Syzoth/Reptile, Ermac, Ogre, Revy, Revolver Ocelot
  • Rivals: Cassie Cage and Jacqui Briggs, Kung Jin, Takeda Takahashi, Shinnok, John Marston, Jesse McCree, Lucky Luke
  • Enemies: Johnny Cage, Jax, Noel Vermillion, Mileena, Baraka, Tanya, Sonya Blade (though Erron is attracted to her), Hanzo Hasashi/Scorpion, Scarface, Facehuggers, Kuai Liang/Sub-Zero, Raiden, Shao Kahn, Kano
  • He was welcomed by his current employer, Kotal Khan, and his Praetorian Guard, Reptile and Ermac. He still however operates as a hired gun, though.
  • Whenever he's about to brutalize his targets, he shoots a bullet that has the name of the target. He is said in fact to have a named bullet for every single member of the Pantheon, including big names such as Lucifer, Majin Buu, and Asura themselves. For proof of having names of every gods in the Pantheon, he has a bullet marked for "Me."
  • He thanked Shang Tsung when he first ascended into the Pantheon, mostly for providing his service to Outworld and in exchange, having his age slowed by his magic. That way, he could very patient in any assignments where he could assassinate someone like the Kahn's enemies.
    • Because of his age slowing and the fact that the agreement with Shang Tsung took place 150 years ago, it is probable that Erron Black was in fact a cowboy from the old Wild West.
  • He is not impressed with the other resident cowboys in the Pantheon like John Marston and McCree. He warned them that they are messing with the real gunslinger and has a bullet just for them.
  • Revolver Ocelot is rather impressed by Black's shootings with his revolvers. From his shootings, he is reminded of the day when he was younger, even recalling how he almost sounded like Black.
  • He is not on good term with Kano, as when Kano retreated from the Red Dragon, he told Erron outright that he wasn't Black Dragon material for trying to help Cassie and Jacqui who were kidnapped by the Red Dragon at the time. Since then, he could barely stand one of them and, at some point, killed one of the members, Kobra.
  • Despite the fact that the two never met since the former died, Baraka doesn't like Erron Black because of his employment to Kotal Kahn. Also, he was furious when he saw that Erron Black has a Severed Tarkatan Blade, which came from an arm of one of his soldiers. However, the two did work together to free Kotal from Shao Kahn, but Baraka has made it clear to the gunslinger that their truce is temporary and he'll skin him alive if they cross each other's path again.
  • When Raiden was under the influence of the Blood Magik, he and Erron Black battle each other and he fried him during the influence. Though Raiden relented on harming him, he has very low opinion of mercenaries and the fact that he would desert Earthrealm for money.
  • Erron is less than thrilled about his ascension, him being a Hollywood Atheist and now being a god is a thing that he finds as an ironic twist of fate.
  • Is not too pleased to see that one of those creatures he dubbed "ugly mofos" are in the House of House of Otherness. To his surprise, this Predator was different from the one he came across in his quest.
    • He is also distasteful of Facehuggers and always shoot them on sight. Since he seems to know what they are and what they do, there are implication that Erron encountered the Xenomorphs before.
  • Has stated to have a small fascination with women who wield guns. This is exactly why he is rather enthralled by Revy herself, who thinks of her as his female cousin from another timeline. Revy seems to be OK with it, but did say to Erron that if he tries to do anything funny to her, she'll shoot him point-blank. This however didn't stop many deities from shipping the two of them.

  • It was a fine day at the Fields of the Ancients, when suddenly there was a LOUD gunshot, and surprisingly, only one victim, right on the head, even if there was one bullet blazing through four more opposing heroes in line... and Roshan itself. That shot was done by Kardel Sharpeye, the reknowned Sniper, with such aiming skill being his daily activity and the mark of his greatness and exile from his home. The aim was very improbable, and yet he made it anyway. Kardel actually planned that would be his claim to challenge the position of Vash The Stampede for Improbable Aiming Skills...
    • But instead, he committed a slight mistake: He laughed to boast his accomplishment, immediately catching the attention of the Gods in the Pantheon. Needless to say, they were very annoyed. But it was for that reason that they actually offered a place for him, while denying him the chance to immediately go gunbarrel-to-gunbarrel against Vash, seeing that people seem to recognize his laughter of terror more and claims say that he has a plethora of them, combined with the perfect obnoxious voice for such laughter. Sniper was more embarrassed about it, but he took it.
    • Though he did not ascend for aiming reasons, Kardel considered his ascension a new level of legend that when it's all done, the village that exiled him would recognize him.
    • However, his strong advantage in long range changed the mind of the Court and has since moved into the House of Combat. He still kept his laugh though.
  • The excerpt of just how 'dangerous' and 'annoying' his laughter is as such:
    None have yet to see the sun, the thunderous Shrapnel storms shower the landscape. Among the unrelenting din of raining bullets, another voice is heard... A phrase so evil that it frightens even the most farmed of carries... that they'd rather hear the laughter of Naga The Serpent... "HO HO! HA HA!"
  • He hates it when people get close to him and there wasn't his 'safety' item in tow: the Shadow Blade. But if allies can protect him and provide cover, he'll be more than happy to shoot things down from afar and... yes, things got shot down well. And don't worry, he'll laugh at that too.
  • Sniper's aiming skill is a class on its own that if he set his sights on someone, his bullet will reach his target. Doesn't matter if the target teleports to another side as the bullet flies, the bullet will make a turn straight to the spot, or if that someone hides behind a tall structure, the bullet will find a way to get through those structure. There were many who emulates this, but none can make such unhindered shot like Sniper. Except maybe Vash...
  • When meeting his Runeterran 'rival', Caitlyn, Sniper was quick to boast the aforementioned aiming skill and impressive aiming range, while Caitlyn explained about her various utility and all-rounder. Ultimately, Sniper's argument was shut down when he realized Caitlyn had one advantage that he can never counter: She has boobs.
  • He took the motto of his friend from a neighboring realm, Mr. Mundy (who he noted to sound like that stinky Pudge, while the Mundy thought Kardel sounded like a high pitched Heavy) very well: He's polite and efficient. Plans to kill everyone he meets? Well... he hasn't thought on that, but he's working on it.
  • As of current, he claims that he is of the Keen Folk. But in the past, rumors say that he's a Dwarf. He struck alliance with the Dwarf Muradin Bronzebeard, though the latter wondered why he traded his 'dwarven' accent into super high pitched voice that is capable of making such irritating laugh.
  • Recently he's been given requests to take care of a certain Dr. Boom as Kardel is noted to carry a certain 'Big Game Hunter''s spirit. It is usually on his Assassinate bullet, enough to take him out. Kardel proudly says that Boom's laugh may be annoying, but nothing beats his, the laughter that traumatizes a generation.
    • However, in the end, Kardel ended up victorious as one fatal shot sent Boom to a place where his movement were restricted that he cannot strike at other people willy nilly and ruining balance. In this one rare moment, instead of getting annoyed, people hailed "HO HO HA HA" as a sign of freedom from Boom's terror. Unfortunately, that's not the legendary shot Kardel needed to buy a ticket home.
    • It's also said that Kardel's victory against Dr. Boom was the impetus of his change of house, since getting close to Dr. Boom means death if subjected with his power and his bomb. Kardel made sure he kept his range long and shot Dr. Boom down. How his 'HO HO HA HA' was instead hailed made the Pantheon re-evaluate their views on him.

Pinstripe Potoroo, God of Reliably Unreliable Guns (Don Pinstripelli Potorotti)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pinstripe_potoroo_crash_bandicoot_n_sane_trilogy.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His face
  • Theme Music: Pinstripe Potoroo, Hot Air Skyway
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Damn, It Feels Good to Be a Gangster!, Lean and Mean, Seldom-Seen Species, Trigger Happy Gun Nut, Brooklyn Rage, Likes laughing, Particularly challenging boss battles (in Team Racing), Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness
  • Domains: Gangsters, Animals

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • One-time avatar: Jackie Chan
  • 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.

    Fuze 
Shuhrat Kessikbayev, Divine Operator of Cluster-Based Weaponry (Fuze, Team Rainbow's Hostage Killer, Fuze the Hostage, Pro Fuze)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fuzefullbody.png
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A cluster of grenades with one having a smile
  • Alignment: Lawful Good, sort of. Leans more on Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: The Spetsnaz' expert explosive breacher, made his own Cluster Charges albeit too well both on his team and the enemy team, wields APM-6 "Matryoshka" charges identified by the "Donk" sound it makes, a strong moral compass with disregard for human life, prone to killing the hostage
  • Domains: Explosives, Cluster Bombs, Russians (Spetsnaz), Shields, Operators, Friendly Fire
  • Allies:
  • Commonality Connection with: Caboose
  • Enemies: The House of Crime, Nikita Dragovich, Vladimir Makarov, Khaled Al-Asad, Imran Zakhaev, Colonel Volgin, Seryu Ubiquitous, The PAYDAY Crew
  • Opposed by: Most good-aligned police officers, XCOM, Batman, RoboCop, Maximillian Caxton, Conan Edogawa
  • Psychological Report: "To say that Specialist Shuhrat "Fuze" Kessikbayev is restrained does not give the full picture. I was reminded of my grandmother's phrase: "talking to him was like pulling teeth." When other operators referred to him as mysterious I thought they were joking. I wouldn't say that he's difficult. He's quite pleasant and hospitable. But he is... contained. It took some work but we finally managed to have a revealing conversation."
    • "Kessikbayev is quiet except with Specialist Timur "Glaz" Glazkov. When he does speak, people tend to hang off his every word. Field reports mention that Kessikbayev readily makes himself available in team planning but often falls into a cone of silence during operations. It's critical that he maintains communications with his team, otherwise there may be further altercations such as the one with Specialist Siu Mei "Ying" Lin regarding civilian casualties. This is doubly critical given some of our operators come from units with "zero casualty" rules."
    • "It was necessary to address past reports about Kessikbayev's recklessness, so I asked him to describe an operation from his point of view. His objective, he explained, is to break down the defense as efficiently as possible, but insists he isn't careless. It's clear that his creative engineering skills are a critical asset. He's highly intelligent and calculating. While hard-hitting, Kessikbayev does possess good situational awareness. I suggested that he concentrate on improving this during future ops."
    • "I was unable to ascertain any details about his brother who is allegedly MIA. That file remains classified. However, I did manage to get Kessikbayev to open up a bit about his personal life. He was engaged for two years but the wedding was called off after he decided it was "not the road to take." A proud Uzbek and a proud Russian, Kessikbayev said that growing up his parents encourage them to embrace all that was Russian, so it wasn't until his teens when he learned to embrace his Uzbek heritage. I asked him to elaborate on the experiences, but in his typical understated way he simply replied, 'It was interesting.'"
  • Weapons can come in all shapes and sizes. From small-arms weapons to larger-scale projectiles. Some would go to the point of putting weapons inside other weapons, forming the term of cluster weapons, notably used in explosives, such as cluster grenades, missles (MIRVs) and so much more. One person thought it would be a great idea to put a bunch of grenades into one device and use it for counter-terrorism even if such methodology would be considered outright illegal. Just ask Spetsnaz operator Shuhrat Kessikbayev, known as Fuze, who built himself a device that would house grenades and launch them from the other side like a miniature grenade launcher. Questionable but deadly, this device is his form of breaching and clearing out of hostiles in one area, which may end up killing teammates and more infamously, killing the hostage.
  • His ascension came rather unexpected during in the middle of a siege where after a breaching gone wrong, he was suddenly blinded a a flash of light surrounding him. Thinking Team Rainbow sent reinforcements only met with confusion upon seeing a vista of golden colors and large fields on the landscape. Several members of the Court of the Gods enlightened him on the current situation and informed him of his ascension, stating his usage of the cluster charges warranted him a place into the "Pantheons". The last thing he requested after hours of explanation was a phone call to Team Rainbow if this entire ordeal was real or not, with no clear response.
  • On the subject of Team Rainbow, the organization has been slowly missing its members following odd disappearances from one of its rosters, utterly dazzled at such incidents or so that is what they think. There are rumors that the same organization is retrofitting its members into the Pantheon for a greater influence against forces it cannot control. Evidence may be lacking but the disappearance of Caveira and later Fuze, alongside other operators might bend to such idea, then again, the organization has been shadowy lately, so the situation has not solved nor reached a visible conclusion, and majority of the Pantheon are making bets to which side is Rainbow taking now that there may be potential evidence of their expansion, using their operators.
  • As a member of Team Rainbow, his allies are mostly soldiers or members of their own Counter-Terrorist Units that specialize on keeping world peace. Very few hail from the Spetsnaz, making it harder for him to socialize towards others, moreso as he is probably one of the very few who specialize in demolition and the rest aren't so much. This has put him tight-lipped on anything regarding his past life, as his bio already states his contained personality, ironic for an operator with a history of unconstrained problems regarding his lack of empathy for casualties.
    • He wasn't alone though, as he was suddenly greeted by Brazilian agent Caveira, who was one of the first operators to be reported MIA on the team only to be ascended on the same place Fuze is in. For one, she gets annoyed by his cluster charges, where being able to clear an room using explosives makes positioning and roaming quite harder to manage, though Fuze shares his slight frustration on her interrogation, as he can attest by the number of times she ambushed him with ease through the use of stealth. After her meeting came a few of her allies, among those was the legendary Sam Fisher, who was one of her stealth allies and if possible has a relation with Team Rainbow on some occasions.
  • "Commander, you may want to instruct your men to exercise restraint when using explosives." Such is the quote spoken by Dr. Vahlen of the XCOM Science Division when observing Fuze's history. Key emphasis for restraint, as his tendency to use his charges in any situation hampers any recovered tech/bodies the group wants to experiment on, and that he is the worst choice for a retrieval scenario, nevermind the fact that he already has a lack of care towards hostages in general, making him only suitable for demolition missions. That has not deterred his usefulness as his charges are potentially useful for their own modifications of such gadgetry.
  • If it has not been obvious, Fuze is a terrible operator to pick when in a situation of a hostage rescue. If anything, he is the very last thing a hostage would want to see when in such scenario as his cluster charges goes against everything to rescue, and the likelihood for him to kill an innocent when deploying such charges goes against the "zero casualties" rule Team Rainbow has emphasized on its members. So to see a (intentional or unintentional) hostage killer has him head butts against RoboCop, stating he should learn a thing or two when it comes to explosive control, especially for being a member of a CTU that is meant to protect lives, and him being either an exception or a contradiction to such.
    • Batman is highly against this as well, reasonable as the Dark Knight has been adept when it comes to rescuing innocents without them getting in harms way, whereas Fuze puts them directly at harm with his charges. When studying the nature of his gadget, he saw what the gadget was meant for and saw his purpose, problem is that saving innocents is not one of the key features him and his gadget fit on. That said, the idea of cluster-based weaponry is something he has been considering, just possibly replacing the grenades with some form of gas or any non-lethal agent for multiple targets. On the other hand however, Michael Bay approached him for more details on his Cluster Charges and after the meeting, Bay was found running with one charge with him, in the hopes of experimenting with it.
    • His notoriety of killing the hostage made him a topic to compare with Seryu Ubiquitous, also known for killing hostages. But there is a difference between a justice-obsessed knight and a counterterrorist operative, in that the former is completely unreasonable with her warped sense of justice and the latter knows what justice exactly is outside of her perspective. To him, the only way to make sense out of her is to shoot her in the head.
    • More police officers grew with discontent hearing that he has a disregard for human casualties in the face of danger and both Conan and Maximillian were one of the first to oppose him, with Conan's cases having at least one or two hostages and Maximillian being reminded that he was responsible for the death of Jack Cayman's daughter at the time of his police life. This lead to both unable to tolerate his mindset and with his profile stating his lack of care for the "zero casualties" rule does not help either.
  • When word spread that an operator with a disregard for innocent casualties popped up on their radar, the PAYDAY Crew shat their pants when they saw that someone was willing to breach with such tool, seeing that the Cluster Charges can kill the civilians and end their leverage. However, there is more to that than just criminal tactics, as their boss Bain, is against the indiscriminate killing of civilians during any heist. To see that someone is willing to go that far to give an open advantage for the police (even if they find it illegal) has him even disgusted as he has his standards for his crew. After all, there is a clear difference between bank robbers and serial killers, and his crew would like to fit the former.
  • Members of any CTU agency are always on the look out for possible incursions, especially terrorism. This was his primary concern when he entered the Pantheon, sensing that if anyone could potentially ascend, terrorists would be part and his senses were right, the moment Caveira gave dossiers to certain deities: Nikita Dragovich, Imran Zakhaev, Khaled Al-Asad and Vladimir Makarov. The latter and former have been primary targets, due to their status as wanted criminals for their Spetsnaz forces in their universe but for him, its better to take them neutralized that keeping them alive for capture. Of course this was easier said than done. Considering their team's lack of support and both Dragovich and Makarov's forces outnumbering them, he would have to plot a better plan that doesn't require the need to face both alone, or better yet, bring more allies to the front.
    • The Russian infamy gained thanks to the likes of Makarov spilled to even generals, one of which was General Volgin, who he was appalled at his actions of trying to cause another massive conflict. A disgraced general at that, and with the fact that he has connections with the former has place him at odds against him, but with his powers and even more connections with Skull Face, he will have to wait until it is time to apprehend him.
    • Thankfully there was someone who can help him in taking these terrorists down and he has lots of information especially on Dragovich. That man was Victor Reznov, who exposed many of Dragovich's objectives and weapons, among which was the Nova-6 Gas, a biochemical weapon that reminded him of the White Masks, placing him as top priority on his watchlist. Then came his reinforcements, Task Force 141, who also briefed him info on Makarov, thanks to Caveira, and that they also needed a demolition man on their team. Until many members of Team Rainbow are dispatched, he will have to be patient.
  • News of a Spetsnaz member brought Artyom's interest, as the Rangers of the Order are basically Spetsnaz but for the apocalypse. Hearing his role as the sole guardian of the Metro system, he volunteered seeing his skills can be of good use. The duo have also been slowly interacting but Artyom comments how he is at times very mysterious, not planning to socialize or share much details on himself. After reading his psychological profile, he now knows why but this hasn't changed on his constrained personality, remaining either silent or talking about current scenarios rather than his own personal life.
  • Bombs or in his case, cluster grenades, don't just inflict damage on hostiles or innocents in the field of battle, but including teammates, one of the more notorious cases of this is a Fuze Ace where both sides are inflicted thanks to his Cluster Charges. Such unfortunate outcome introduced him to Teamkiller Caboose, who, much like Fuze is notorious for the acts of killing his own teammates, both intentional and unintentional. The moment he met Fuze, he played with the charges to see what was inside, only for the grenades to explode upon impact from release. The two sides of Blue Team and his allies all pointed to Caboose, while he blamed Fuze for such a volatile tool.
  • Fuze's highlight as a counter-terrorist unit has been a question of debate to whether he is actually qualified to fit. Many argue that his sense of doing good is an admirable thing and should be a factor when considering to recruit potential CTU candidates, but others point out his recklessness when it comes to human lives, or more specifically, hostage situations, where his gadget becomes less a liability and more of an actual threat to the victim. This is further worsened by the fact that his character was based on the Moscow Theatre Hostage Crisis better known as 2002 Nord-Ost siegeExplanation  This, along with the fact that his gadget reflects on the issue only fueled the flames further. What they will admit is that he is pretty damn good at the job, just not anything related to the hostage.
  • "Enough talk. Now we act."

    The Lone Ranger 
The Lone Ranger, Divine Wielder of the Silver Bullet (John Reid, Spirit Walker)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_lone_ranger.jpg
  • Theme Song: William Tell Overture
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A silver bullet
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Big Damn Heroes, The Cape, Celibate Hero, Domino Mask, The Faceless, Horseback Heroism, Improbable Aiming Skills, Proto-Superhero, Sole Survivor, Superhero Packing Heat,
  • Followers: Numerous werewolf hunters
  • Heralds: His horse, Silver, and his sidekick, Tonto
  • Allies: Most superhero gods, especially Clark Kent/Superman The Phantom, Zorro, The Spirit, John Wayne, The Man With No Name, Chuck Norris, Theodore Roosevelt, Lucky Luke, Caitlyn, the House of Justice
  • Enemies: Yosemite Sam
  • Rivals: John Marston
  • Opposes: Jack Sparrow
  • Respects: Hana Isuzu
  • Odd Friendship: Applejack
  • Whenever a mortal fires a silver bullet, whether to kill werewolves and other supernatural foes or just to look like a badass, one can always look up to the mask vigilante known as the Lone Ranger. The circumstances of his ascension has been a mystery to this day, though reports found that he was a mortal Texas Ranger before he was killed and buried by bandits. Most deities only recount his arrival on horseback with his sidekick Tonto.
  • He had far more followers in the 1930s where millions heard his stories through the radio. There was an attempt to do the same to modern audience in the form of a new film. Sadly it received lukewarm reception and middling box office numbers. He isn't too upset with the result, seeing it as a decent popcorn film.
    • Those thoughts diminish whenever Jack Sparrow trolls him by wearing the film's costume for Tonto. It doesn't help that Jack's the God of Piracy. So far the pirate has eluded the Lone Ranger's attempts of capture.
  • Many gods agree that he may be the only other god that matches Superman on the ideal heroic archetype, only losing out by not wearing a cape himself. It's by no surprise that the two heroes get along extremely well. More chaotic heroes may grown at his teachings, but even they can't seem to dislike the masked man for long.
  • Although he uses Silver Bullets as his weapon of choice, he hardly uses them, urging his followers to only use them when necessary. Some deities suggests that he uses silver bullet to symbolize the value of a bullet as well as how shots should not be wasted so quickly. It's with that reason that he approves of Hana's methods of gun combat.
  • Was quickly greeted by various gods of the pulp era. Although he was one of the earliest examples of the Proto-Superhero, he declined the title to stick with the current one. He is willing to lend a hand in choosing a worthy mortal of the title.
  • It didn't take long afterwards to receive accolades from two more cowboys. John Wayne was the first to tip his hat to the latest deity. It was the other cowboy that caused the ranger to raise eyebrows. That one has no true name like the Lone Ranger. In fact, he doesn't even have a title for himself.
  • One of the more unexpected cowboy deities to welcome him was Applejack. The pony was also quick to greet his herald Silver. In fact, she manages to understand the horse even more than he could. The friendship has the blessing from the Lone Ranger.
  • Many of his followers urged him to challenge Lucky Luke to see who is the better sharpshooter. The Lone Ranger declined the request, not one to seek competition with a fellow cowboy. In fact, the two go out on horseback at times, helping each other out.
  • His arrival into the House of Justice was applauded by many deities. Many see him as what sheriffs should strive to be. In the end he decided to instead place his temple in the House of Weapons, hoping to quell down the unnecessary violence there. It was there that he met Caityn who was more than willing to help him out in cases.
  • Gained one thumb up of approval, courtesy of Chuck Norris. Rumor has it that he became a Texas Ranger himself among other personalities. The ass-kicking god sees the Lone Ranger as a role model for future generations.
  • One of his main tasks is to track down the outlaw Yosemite Sam who ascended not long before him. The ranger's confident he can handle the God of Mustaches, but he's wary that his toonforce will make him difficult to capture.
  • Was surprised to find a president in the Pantheon when he was face-to-face with Teddy Roosevelt. The badass president presented him with a gift: a book titled "The Lone Star Ranger." Teddy believed this was the story that inspired the Lone Ranger's creation. The former texas ranger thanked him for the gift, commending Teddy for his services as one of the Buffalo Soldiers during the Spanish-American War.
  • Things took an even more surprising turn when he was visited by an American legend. Johnny Appleseed arrived with a few barrels of apples to give thanks to the man.
  • Paid a visit to John Marston's temple one day. Surprisingly there was no confrontation. All the ranger wanted to do was to commend the former outlaw of turning a new leaf. That doesn't mean he won't stop keeping an eye on him, but the Lone Ranger is far more friendly to him than most other enforcers of the law.

  • Allies: Dr. Eggman, Revolver Ocelot, Toon Patrol, Pinstripe Potoroo
  • Rivals: All other treasure hunters (Rouge the Bat, Lara Croft, Nathan Drake, Indiana Jones, Oerba Yun Fang, Yuna), other snipers in the Pantheon (Lockon Stratos, The Sniper, Yoko Littner, Lynette Bishop, Sniper Wolf, Ryoubi, Golgo 13, Sinon, Cyrus)
  • Complicated Relationship: Garrus Vakarian
  • Enemies: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, all Chaotix members, 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 crusing 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 ben 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 techology, 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 Justice after apparently trying (and failing) to steal something highly dangerous from the Treasury for Dr. Eggman.

  • Enemies: All Black Mesa personnel, the Spy
  • Punch-Clock Villain to: Chell, anyone who enters their sights
  • While Torbjörn and the Engineer were discussing sentry guns one day, and the topic eventually came to the Sentry Turrets of Aperture Science. Naturally, both had fun ridiculing its design flaws. The next day, a file from Cave Johnson with an attached video was delivered to the Court of the Gods. Turns out he had been listening in on that conversation in secret.
    • It showed the features of his Sentry Turrets, the very ones GLaDOS used in the tests she forced Chell through. After going through the file, they decided to "ascend" them for two titles: Weak Turret Gun for how easy it is to take them out, and Cartridges in Flight, since their firing system actually spring-launches the entire bullet.
    • The day after Cave delivered his file, his proposal to ascend his Sentry Turrets was approved, but there was a certain issue...
    • Given the nature of the trope and the deity, there was some debate on how to bring them up and how to represent them. It was one thing to ascend a squadron of unnamed human soldiers as can be seen in the House of War, but this was what was essentially a consumer product (with battle applications, admittedly) that just happened to never make it to the shipping stage. Eventually, a verdict was reached.
    • And so the Sentry Turrets' two temples (in Machinery and Firearms) were essentially turned into Aperture Facilities for manufacturing these things, and then actually shipping them all over the Pantheon. Due to their... "reliability", they come relatively cheap, despite Cave's protests. Shipping is handled both by on-site pick-ups and hired delivery services (though Derpy often gets them jostled, and the Courier either actually delivers on time, or his usual and they actually prove useful for the customer's situation).
    • That said, there's a chance that a Defective Turret might be manufactured instead, but the facilities actually have quality checks to make sure none of those actually get shipped. It's one of the actual competent things Aperture does, though it's done by having a Sentry Turret as a template for its quality checker; swap that with a Defective Turret and you'll get good Turrets being tossed out.
  • Here's an advertisement for the Turrets in case you wish to make a purchase.
  • Aperture Science advises to only use Aperture-brand Resolution Pellets when loading the Sentry. "Incident resolution" is not guaranteed if anything else is loaded. Also make sure the turret is in Non-Judgment Mode before doing so.
  • They don't just come in plain white chassis, one can request for different kinds of designs, like Forest Camo, Desert Camo, Wood (Table), Brick (Evening At The Improv), an orange-and-white design (What Idiot Picked This?), and more. And there's always the option to paint it afterwards.
  • As for why Turrets are able to sing, it's meant for soothing any babies it's protecting back to sleep after shooting any house intruders.
  • Due to how the Turrets fire their bullets, they're actually far weaker than if it had been fired by striking the primer hard and thus using the gunpowder to propel the bullet, which explains why Chell is able to survive their attacks despite lacking any sort of armor.
  • Naturally, with no one saying otherwise, most gods who order their turrets get theirs modified (either by themselves or someone else) in all sorts of ways, like clamps to keep from falling over, changing up the firing systems so that they actually shoot bullets like bullets, and so on. Thankfully, since the "vanilla" versions still fit their current tropes, these mods don't affect their divine positions in the Pantheon.
    • Those commonly known to mod these turrets are the Engineer and Torbjörn (only for purposes of study), Peridot, Cyborg, Tony Stark (same reasons as Torb and Dell), Lucca, San Francisco DedSec, Tali'Zorah, Nitori Kawashiro, Miles Prower, etc.
      • Symmetra looks down on these turrets not only for their "medieval" design despite their smooth aesthetic (the only positive quality she considers), but for actually being far weaker than Torbjörn's and Dell's (let alone her own). Still, she has had one purchased for modification purposes; perhaps she can come up with a far superior design than Aperture's.
      • Asroc, being his team's resident Gadgeteer Genius, would try his hand on making his own improvements on them with his Septima. Not only to further aid his comrades and their efforts, but also as an opportunity to showcase his superiority over others in his field of work. Heck, with his abilities he could even turn the Defective Turrets into something useful with just the right amount of parts of junk lying around.
  • Plenty of evil armies, such as the Helghan Empire and the 501st Legion purchase these en masse either for cheap security or as expendable mooks for their armies. After getting them all retrofitted to have more lethal shots, of course.
  • The two ascended Weyland-Yutani soldiers (Hicks and Vasquez) bought a few to see how they would fare against Xenomorphs. Let's just say the Turrets didn't make the cut, and the soldiers ceased to be customers.
  • The Spy finds them hilariously easy to thwart. He doesn't even need a Sapper to destroy them. They particularly don't like it when he uses am Ap-Sap on them, which looks like Wheatley.
  • "No Hard Feelings."
