  • Albedo was a Galvan assistant of Azmuth, an eccentric genius who aided in developing the Omnitrix. However, he pushed his luck by asking for one of his own, not trusting "a mere human" like Ben to have it. He was fired for this, and when he made a copy this led to Ben's DNA being the default and making his default become a Palette Swap of Ben. He really doesn't like this human form, and has troubled Ben in order to cure himself. While once an Anti-Villain, revenge and resentment has led him to become a full villain obsessed with getting back at Ben and those who slighted him.
  • Ascended after nearly taking over the planet Earth with an army of To'kustars, which solidified his place as truly evil. Many of the gods had found most of his deeds to be...rather odd. Involving attempts at fame, raiding restaurants for chili fries, and sending Ben Tennyson into a deep sleep with an alien parasite. After his ascendance, he had been very antagonistic to Ben Tennyson, since the two share a very "unique" history together. They had nearly clashed once again in the Pantheon, if it weren't for Batman's intervention.
  • The knowledge of Gwen Tennyson and Kevin Levin being in the Pantheon has recently unnerved Albedo, due to the fact that the same three people who defeated him are in the same place as him. Complicating matters is his former master Azmuth has ascended, who he once held in high regard but with his increased evil and the time he stole his intelligence they are enemies. Interestingly, this brought him to an enlightened state where he realized his vendetta was pointless...until Ben caused him to lose that knowledge and realization. Ganthet, who was once the kind of person Albedo looked up to, finds his falling back to his petty villain a loss of a once brilliant intellect.
  • Despite how evil he's become, he's considered Ben's offer to join up against Vilgax. After all, he betrayed him while they worked together to get the Omnitrix, and later when he was tricked into a team-up in order to destroy every single timeline except one where Ben never got the Omnitrix and removing Vilgax's opposition. Ultimately Albedo agreed, after being reminded at how before his Face–Heel Turn he did help Ben deal with Malware. The GUAG hopes that these Enemy Mine situations might push Albedo into a less villainous role.
  • Albedo once held the position of Evil Doppelgänger, which he resented by virtue of hating his human form. Quoting Agent Smith, "it's the smell", along with other hormones and gross things about the human body compared to his Galvan one. The Reverse-Flash could actually relate to Albedo as he hates being comparable to his Arch-Enemy, yet until the Flashpoint he could not afford to remove him from the timeline.
  • Finds the fact a human got the Omnitrix to be mockery as he thinks little of them, especially after becoming human. Doesn't seem to understand what a being as powerful as Lucifer sees in them, though he assumes that as aliens are almost never shown to exist in the SMT multiverse it's probably because of a lack of other mortal options. He seems put off by Jazz and Astral for their interest in human society. They think he's a hypocrite given his fondness of chili fries, which he justifies by having his body modeled off Ben. In reality, he just happens to be fond of them.
  • Dislikes the Emperor of Mankind on principle, and the Emperor has contempt for him for being an evil scheming and smug alien. However, Azmuth's hostility towards humans doesn't compare to Zamasu. As Goku Black he experienced being in the form of the man he hates more than anyone, so he does relate to Albedo's predicament. However just because he understands him doesn't mean he likes him, as the mad Kaioshin regards Galvans as sinful as any other mortal. Albedo thinks Zamasu is a genocidal maniac in return.
  • He had kept breaking into the House of Food in order to take all the chili fries that they had. This had caused him to be hated by Phillip J. Fry, who finds him as more of a greasy slob. Everyone in the Pantheon that does not have any interest in chili fries is disgusted by the way Albedo eats them like a cannibal who had just downed his next prey. Albedo has come up with an excuse for this, saying that it's the only food he likes. It should be mentioned that while the lack of a Delta Wave does make Fry an intriguing anomaly to study, Albedo is seriously grossed by the fact it's because he sired his own father. It's all the more rationalization for him to hate the often slobbish and dim-witted Fry.
  • He's EXTREMELY afraid of Springtrap due to his terrifying appearance, and even his crimes disgust him that he won't even go within ten feet of his temple. Although, he finds Freddy Fazbear to be laughably unhorrifying. Albedo fears SCP-682 too, who regards it as "disgusting" like humans, however he has a morbid fascination due to considering it potentially the Ultimate Lifeform and wishes to gain its powers. However the SCP Foundation is doing what it can to prevent this, and it's highly unlikely Albedo will ever get the results from it.
  • Sora doesn't take Albedo kindly whenever they cross paths, most notably because Albedo is an evil copy of Ben Tennyson, and could be able to disguise himself as his counterpart at any time and ruin his name. Sora has also been wary of Albedo, almost believing him to be a vessel for Master Xehanort due to his white hair, and occasional gold eyes.
  • Albedo had once attempted to steal the prototype Omnitrix that was in The Vault, in order to have a real Omnitrix. Unfortunately, he failed and only managed to get a small chip of tech from it, which he used to upgrade his Omnitrix to the Ultimatrix. He wants Dr Hamsterviel's help in developing technology like the Omnitrix, as they both have experience with genetic engineering. He suggests that if he proves a worthwhile ally, Albedo might try to reward him with a modified Omnitrix that lets him copy abilities of the Experiments. After all, a brilliant mind could do with Experiment superpowers.
  • He attempted to scan The Doctor's DNA, so he could become a Time Lord. This caused him to be enemies with The Doctor, most notably his Twelfth incarnation. Albedo is regularly seen working in the Genetic Engineering sub-house, modifying his Omnitrix to achieve his desires. He's pretty happy to see the variety of different species in the Pantheon, but is more than a little annoyed most of them are human. He can't imagine why there's an apparent "bias".
  • Finds Jotaro Kujo to be a serious threat to him after hearing about what he had done to those who had done wrong. Has been taking a liking to Dio Brando, mostly for their shared hate of Jotaro Kujo, but also because they bonded over taking a different body for their owns, though Dio is much more comfortable in Jonathan's skin. However he does occasionally complain about Dio's dog punting, despite everything.
  • He can't imagine why Pinocchio would want to be human. When he asked Albedo why, the Galvan said that as a living puppet he doesn't have to deal with anything "gross" and can neither get sick nor age. Pinocchio countered by saying he'd never grow or enjoy other traits of a living, true real boy, and Albedo admitted he had a point. While Pinocchio doesn't like the fact he's evil and won't let go of revenge, he does have some small hope that he will one day. Probably because he pities his condition.
  • Chernamouse, Tepsekemi and Serval don't understand his complex with being human. Albedo muses "of course not; your transformations weren't nearly as drastic as mine". Lady Almathea does understand his frustration with becoming human, as she had her reservations about things like losing her immortality, but eventually came to accept it and dread becoming a unicorn again(which she ultimately did). Albedo supposes she took it better than him, but still thinks she was better off being restored to the form of a unicorn.
  • According to Professor Paradox, there's a universe where he managed to get Alien X only to get stuck for years. As such, Albedo isn't pursuing any Cosmic Entity or Reality Warper for their power. Granted his ambitions were never that lofty, but he still considers what Paradox learned to be proof that Reality Warping Is Not a Toy. Granted, the ascended reality warpers and cosmic entities don't consider him worth their time anyway.
  • Has no relation to the other Albedo, and he prefers it that way given what he's like.
  • "Why bother with a cell? This human body is prison enough. But someday I will be free, then they will all suffer, starting with Ben Tennyson. Until that day... BRING ME CHILI FRIES!"

Crowley as a Human 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Eyepatch
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Badass Longcoat, Eyepatch of Power, Badass even before turning Worgen, Empowered Badass Normal, Good Is Not Soft, The Musketeer, Rebel Leader, Shapeshifter Mode Lock, Sword and Gun,

  • Darius Crowley was once a nobleman of Gilneas who had his land were present in the north of the kingdom and he was a fierce alliance supporter. However, after King Greymane decided to wall off the Gilneas from the upcoming threat of the Scourge and exile Gilneas from the Alliance, leaving his lands outside of the wall, Crowley became enraged by the decission of Greymane and decided to rebel against him. While he was an effective Rebel Leader, he was eventually captured and thrown to jail. But that wouldn't last, as much later the Worgen were set loose in Gilneas, transforming many of its residents into the werebeasts and Greymane saw no other option but to seek the help of Crowley, whose skills where good enough for the job and he was always an effective ally in a time of crisis. Crowley accepted to help and he too became a Worgen but he didn't lose his humanity after the curse got to him and remained composed even when transformed, something he and the people of Gilneas used to their advantage and use their newfound powers to fight the Horde and the Undead, especially the Forsaken.
  • Crowley is one of the few afflicted by the worgen curse who hasn't reverted to his human form, some night elves attribute that to some inner turmoils that prevent him from exiting the worgen form. Nevertheless, Crowley doesn't mind it a lot and was even proud when he found out that the pantheon chose him as a deity to represent the struggle that the gilnean residents have to endure. It is said that the one who convinced the Court of Gods was Greymane himself, who championed Crowley's inclusion since day one.
  • He and Vincent Godfrey are sworn enemies, even before he became a worgen, Godfrey thought Crowley was just scum for opposing Greymane and the feeling was mutual for Crowley. Everything got worse after the worgen curse hit Gilneas, with Godfrey later commiting suicide and being risen as a Forsaken, Crowley things he became even more rotten. He even had the chance to personally confront him after Hagatha the Witch made a deal with Godfrey and hired him to take the Worgen Commander down.
  • His weapon of choice tend to change, sometimes he is The Musketeer, other times he likes to uses cannons to get the job done, like the time he and 3 others joined forces in hunting down the monsters in Blackwald. Shortly after settling in the pantheon, he heard that Hagatha not only had once again emerged in the pantheon, but she was behind his Arch-Enemy Vincent Godfrey being ascended.
  • Thanks to Greymane he is very acquiantanced with the benevolent werewolves, showing that even if he is stuck as a Worgen until his inner issues are solved, he can find solace that he isn't the only one who prefers to use the lycanthropy curse for good. Being neighbours to his king, Crowley got to meet both Valkenhayn and Bigby and remained friends with them ever since.
    • However, not everyone who is cursed to become a monster is lucky enough to retain their humanity. Such fate is one that befell Ludwig the Accursed, forever haunted as being the divine representative of what becoming a monster can do to someone. Crowley hopes that one day he can recover but he also has no issue performing a Mercy Kill on Ludwig should he threaten his close ones.
  • Fenrir Greyback is one of few Werewolves that is evil by choice, and it shows. He is one of the awful reminders to Crowley of what could happen to him should he lose his senses and firmly opposes him and his lot, with Voldermort not being that different from the foul sorcerers and liches he had the unfortune of meeting. That also made him meet Remus Lupin, someone who personally cursed by Greyback and he is ashamed by that. Finding out that Crowley can't simply revert to his original form upsets Lupin to no end but is glad that unlike him, he can actually control his urges.
  • Following the advice of the Night Elves, Crowley decided to become more in-tune with nature just like the original Worgen druids. Visiting the House of Nature did help him become a lot more at peace with himself and that ended up catching the attention of San. She already met Greymane before and so was a lot more familiar with werewolves unlike in the past but was surprised to meet one who couldn't return to their original self. This in turn made her seek Ashitaka to see if both could help Crowley overcome his course (Ashitaka is very familiar with being cursed after all) and he agreed to help the Gilnean commander. So far they haven't made much progress, but the pair quickly befriended Darius in the process but there were some hiccups along the way. The most significant being Moro, San's adoptive mother, who doesn't think highly of the Worgen given that he used to be human and still behaves like one, so both San and Ashitaka have been trying their hardest to convince her that Crowley and the rest of the Worgen are good people deep down.
  • While they share a few similarities, he and Wolf O'Donnel tend to butt heads. Crowley respects his display of honor even if he is a hired good but he still lacks morals and has no problem working for truly awful people. A shame considering if things were different, they could actually be friends but at least they have complimented their respective eyepatches for looking cool on them.
  • Initially confused Amaterasu for one of the Night Elves eternals but quickly learned she is unrelated. Then she showed herself to be a Goddess and took human form to reassure Crowley she wasn't just a divine wolf but an actual deity. Having some domain over the moon, Crowley wondered if she had something to do with Elune, the Goddess the Night Elves worship but once again she had nothing to do with them. She agreed on assisting Crowley in his efforts of maintaining order in the pantheon and find a way for him to regain his human form.
  • Among the Gilneans and other alliance folks he is considered a Memetic Badass, saying he could take down all the horde down with just his his sable. Some argued he could dethrone Chuck Norris, but instead of doing that he said he would rather stay on amicable terms with him.
  • While he is still a noble, he prefers to stay out of relations with the Pantheon's nobility given that he believes they would look down on his form, plus he prefers to be on the battlefield. That said, he's had his share of awful experiences with evil noblemen as Godfrey and several other Gilnean traitors have shown, preferring undeath over being worgen. That is one of the reasons he despises the Crimson Court so much, being both part of the aristocracy AND evil vampires just rubs him the wrong way. And worse, their lot also included Godfrey into their ranks, somehow making him hate them more.
    • One of their sworn enemies, the Ancestor, wanted to meet Crowley since he took interest in the Worgen curse and how that can immunity to other curses, most notably being unable to be raised as undead. On a first glance Crowley was reminded a bit of how Greymane used to be, secluded and short-tempered nbçot to mention how The Ancestor's actions caused everything that went wrong in his world, but as a monster hunter Crowley has no issue working for him if it means removing scum from the pantheon.
  • By profession he takes elements of both Rogues and Warriors, in the HS Tavern he is labelled a Warrior by the Inkeeper, which unfortunately puts folks like Garrosh Hellscream as his superior. He is also a Monster Hunter after he ventured into Hagatha's Witchwood and slayed her with the help of the Gilnean princess and two other companions. Given the nature of said monsters, he became acquiantanced with the Hunter and commended them for slaying monster that wouldn't look out of place in the service of the Old Gods. Being the ones who personally put down Ludwig the Accursed also caught his attention, wondering if they would do the same to him if he were a feral beast but the Hunter assured Crowley that, so far, he is still a trustworthy ally.
  • "Rush the enemy, defend Gilneas!"

  • Jeffrey Sinclair was brought into the Pantheon by the combined efforts of Lorien, Ambassador Kosh, finding his soul after it died nine hundred years in the past and bringing him to the present. Lorien told him that, if possible, they would bring others who have "Passed Beyond the Rim" into the Pantheon, which made Sinclair smile. He was looking forward to meeting old friends again.
  • It was a tearful reunion when he met up with his replacement. Once given the cold shoulder, John Sheridan now recognizes him as an invaluable ally.
  • The Doctor immediately struck up conversation with Sinclair, since Sinclair was one of those rare occasions of a benevolent time traveler whose going back into the past of his world and staying there was overall beneficial to the timeline, allowing for a better future to take place for his companions and allies. He also commented on Sinclair changing into Valen, which the Doctor likened to his own Regenerations.
  • He is directly opposed to the Grand United Alliance of Chaos, as the Alliance bears echoes of the reasons behind the Shadows staging continuous wars across the galaxy (one such war he went back in time to make sure the Army of Light won), and he knows too well how much that ideology costs people in the long run.
  • Sinclair is a veritable rules lawyer, as his lawyering of the Rush Act's terms on Babylon 5 - "using any means necessary" to quell a riot to divert millions of Credits from the military budget to the dock workers guild to hire new workers and get new equipment - proves. As he once said:
    "You should never hand someone a gun unless you're sure where they'll point it".
  • As Valen, he is a holy figure to the Minbari Castes, being the one who led them to victory against the Shadows a thousand years ago, and is known as "A Minbari Not Born of Minbari". As a Human who became Minbari, this is the cause for Minbari souls being born in Human bodies over the last thousand years. He was quite surprised to learn from Lorien that Delenn was actually one of his descendants.
    • Because he went back in time and became Minbari, it led to Minbari souls being reborn into Human bodies, effectively making his title have both a spiritual context for the Human race in his world, as well as an individual context for himself.
  • Kang the Conqueror hates Sinclair's altruistic nature, as the two are opposite counterparts to one another - Kang has always tried to conquer the past, whereas Sinclair went back in time to save the past.

  • Meilin Lee is a second generation Chinese immigrant living in Toronto in 2002. For much of her young life, she did her best to live up to the expectations of her demanding mother Ming, which she was successful at as she excelled at school and gladly helped with the family business. Then, shortly after her 13th birthday, Mei started going through changes; most alarmingly, she started turning into a giant red panda whenever she had an intense burst of emotion. This magical transformation is passed down through the women of the Lee family, starting with a distant ancestor who acquired that power to protect her loved ones. However, Mei and her mother saw it as a curse, since it's not very normal to poof into a big, fluffy animal in their world. On the other hand, Mei's best friends warmly welcomed this new side of her and made her feel like the panda was awesome instead of something to be ashamed of. Meanwhile, Mei and her friends aimed to see their favorite boy band, 4*Town, live. To pay for the tickets, Mei revealed the panda to the rest of her schoolmates and charged money for pictures and other things related to the panda. The more time Mei spent in her panda form, the more she liked it. Nonetheless, Ming was determined to get rid of it and to that end, some of her extended family gathered for a ritual, which coincidentally fell on the same day as the concert. Mei decided she was done always putting her mother's wants over her own and declared she would keep her panda. Ming was so furious that she involuntarily unsealed her own kaiju-sized panda form, chased Mei down and wreaked havoc at the concert. Fortunately, Mei was able to stop her mother's rampage and, with the help of her family, friends, concertgoers and 4*Town, resealed her mother's panda spirit through Magic Music. Mei then learned that Ming also suffered a great deal under the pressure of her grandmother. As mother and daughter came to understand each other better, Mei got to keep her panda.
  • Her ascension happened on the next night with a red moon. She felt the urge to go just a little wild and hop around the city in her panda form, and just like that she stumbled her way into the Pantheon. Past an initial freak-out at the sudden change in scenery, Mei realized she had no real reason to fear when taking into account the things she could do in her panda form (besides the fact that her size can be intimidating), so she explored this new world with easygoing curiosity. And then, at some point, she was suddenly glomped by a pretty blonde lady, who, just as suddenly, dragged her down to the Main House and begged for Mei to be ascended. Noel (as the blonde lady is known) was assured that the Main House was way ahead of her, and so the very taken-aback Mei was placed through the usual procedures of having the Pantheon explained to her and what was expected of her. Turns out, the idea of being one of the Pantheon's gods holds a lot of appeal for Mei; it's like she's become the heroine of a teen fantasy novel like the kind Priya reads, or something.
  • Spends roughly 90% of her Pantheon time in panda form, both because the Pantheon's strange nature means she's at freedom to do so without getting funny looks, and so as to intimidate anyone who might think of picking a fight with her. Just like in her world, there are a number of people eager to bask in her fluffiness and cuteness, with the aforementioned Noel being one of her top visitors for that reason. Mei can feel a little weirded out by how Noel seems to dip into a trance whenever she's around a panda, but reasons Noel is a good person despite all that, and probably needs to destress considering all the crap she's got to deal with in her universe.
  • Panda Mei has such a large, fluffy and rotund frame that it makes her look rather cozy to sleep on. She thinks it's way too weird to allow someone to sleep on her like that, no matter how much they beg, but regardless of that, the panda's physique reminds many of the similarly-built and often literally slept-on forest spirit Totoro. While the teen wasn't too interested in meeting a creature only children can see, the comparisons between the two brought forth Satsuki and Mei Kusakabe to see how she stacked up against their iconic friend. The sisters served as Mei's introduction to Totoro, although Mei didn't expect that she'd be roped into a friendly sumo match with the forest spirit to "settle" who was the fluffiest of the two. At the end of it, Mei found herself flipped upside down and stuck between a tree's branches, but she took it as all in good fun and has become good friends with the sisters and the forest spirit; she's particularly close to Satsuki on account of being the same age.
  • As a giant red panda with remarkable physical abilities (even if she's not actually a trained fighter), Mei was bound to get Po's attention sooner or later, especially after word of her not-so-legendary battle with Totoro spread around. Though, as it turns out, the Dragon Warrior isn't that interested in putting Mei to the test or even potentially making a successor out of her (at that point, Mei would say that between the red panda and being in the Pantheon, she already has enough of a great destiny), and just likes to have another fun panda friend to hang out with casually. He couldn't help but remark that on how she was quite a bit bigger than him and that she was really extra-plus-sized for a red panda though, given the species is usually diminutive, as exemplified by his master Shifu. The fact that Mei is a lot more laidback in contrast to Shifu also provides some amusement, but in the end, both Mei and Po could bond over being raised/trained by strict disciplinarians.
  • A night at karaoke with her best friends led to Mei running into another red panda, Retsuko, who's in the habit of going to karaoke after work to let off steam. At the gang's invitation (as they were all stoked to have a second red panda for company), Retsuko joined them for the night and both impressed them and frightened them with her vocal prowess, not to mention the subject matter of her songs. As Mei talked to Retsuko about the reasons behind her singing like that, they got to the subject of Retsuko's workplace and more generally the realities of being a working adult. 13-year-old Mei couldn't help a feeling of utter dread regarding what her life will look like in a decade or so, though Retsuko reassured her that despite all her complaints, she's able to soldier on and find happiness thanks to outlets like singing metal at karaoke, and it looks like Mei already has a pretty good one in being able to go panda. Mei is left feeling grateful to Retsuko for her advice and will keep it in mind for the inevitable future.
  • Coincidentally she is not the only second generation Chinese immigrant youth to be saddled with a powerful animal transformation as a result of her family's ancient history chasing her all the way cross-continent. There is also Jake Long, a New Yorker who around the age of 13 discovered he had dragon blood in him and could fully transform into one, which was part of his destiny as a protector of magical beings. While Mei's own transformation doesn't make her obliged to fulfill any grand tasks, she and Jake could relate to each other over the conflict between their westernized upbringing and their family's ancient traditions from another culture, as well as the fact that their transformations appeared during a time when they're angsty, hormonal and trying to figure themselves out as they go through rapid changes.
  • One of the biggest sources of Mei's angst was her overbearing mother's desire to see her daughter conform to her expectations. Fortunately Ming would come to accept Mei's desire to be her own person after much duress. A nearly identical situation, but told from the opposite perspective, can be found in the story of Evelyn Wang, another Chinese immigrant who also used to put a lot of pressure on her American-born daughter Joy as a result of the Culture Clash and their different desires. After some bizarre adventures involving an all-powerful, nihilistic, suicidal version of Joy from an alternate universe where she had been abused and mentally broken by Evelyn, she came to realize she had been trying to erase her daughter's true self for her own convenience and thus driving Joy away, which was definitely not something she wanted. Mei easily warmed to Evelyn for making an effort to change for her daughter's sake, and likewise for Evelyn as she saw how much Mei was reflected in Joy.
  • Mei would discover that some kids will get along poorly with their parents even if there is no drastic Culture Clash going on; sometimes parents are just unapologetic jerks, which is something The Breakfast Club can personally verify with much pain, between parents that are physically abusive, neglectful or using their kids to live vicariously. Most relatable to Mei is Brian Johnson for having an Education Mama, except Mrs. Johnson is psychologically vicious to her son whenever he fails to perform to her standards and doesn't seem to truly care for him otherwise, and it's gotten to the point where the pressure has given Brian suicidal ideation. This is all personally upsetting to Mei, who wonders if she would have taken the same actions as Brian if Ming were as vile as Mrs. Johnson. She can at least take comfort in the fact that Ming did mean well for Mei, but was simply misguided by her own experiences as a teenager.
  • Mei's family has some Generational Trauma that goes back at least to her grandmother, who forced Ming to conform to her standards with little regard for her opinion, and led to Ming still fearing her as an adult; Ming then went on to apply these standards in raising her daughter. Mei can thus relate to the plight of the Madrigals, a family gifted with a magical house and magical talents after their matriarch Alma lost her husband. Alma thus became obsessed with making sure her descendants used their powers to be useful to the community, and mistreated Mirabel, her granddaughter who was born magic-less. Ultimately, both the Madrigals and the Lees were healed by talking about their feelings in earnest, and resolving to do better by each other. Mei and Mirabel may differ in how powerful they are, but they could certainly bond over their similar family situations.
  • Shino Aizawa is an empowered teen girl who could relate to Mei's situation of having to control her emotions in order to control her power; Shino's own ability is to create duplicates of herself based on her emotions. Her powers, while different, have further parallels to Mei's in that they manifest sometime during puberty and are also passed down through the women in the family, with Shino's mother having the power as well; Mei remarked that she felt a little jealous that Shino's mother is a lot more chill about it than Ming. Other kids who were in the situation of developing powers during puberty are those comprising the Charlotte cast, with Yuu Otosaka having been strong-armed into joining a special academy in order to suppress his power. While Mei knows there's a time and a place to go panda, she's not sure she'd like to attend such an oppressive-sounding academy. On top of that, Yuu went around the world collecting every power into himself to save everyone from being taken advantage of by powerful organizations; Mei thinks that if anyone forcefully tried to take the panda from her, good intentions or no, she would fight them tooth and claw, and would deal with the consequences herself in time. Her panda, her choice, after all. Because of this she can't say she sees fully eye-to-eye with the Charlotte group.
  • Some are of the opinion that Mei could easily become a superhero through her panda form, what with her heightened abilities. Mei doesn't really want to go that route, knowing from comics and movies how much the superhero life is full of suffering and responsibility she doesn't want to take on her shoulders. Despite that, she finds herself with a newfound appreciation for The Hulk, what with both having the need to control their emotions so they don't transform and go feral (in Mei's case, turning into the panda doesn't automatically make her into a being of Unstoppable Rage, but it could happen if she gets really angry while transformed). It helps that they're both smart people despite their transformations giving off a more primitive vibe, as well as the fact that The Hulk's anger originates in an abusive father. Another superhero that's easy for Mei to be around is Beast Boy, since he is a fun and youthful shapeshifter, and then there's the similarly-powered Animorphs, who provide a more sobering example of what happens when teenagers are shouldered with amazing powers and the responsibility to use them, as their lives and psyches are utterly wrecked by what they have to face. Mei thinks the Animorphs just prove her point about not being involved in any heroics that are larger-scale than protecting her friends and family, and that maybe there should be a law or something protecting kids her age from becoming superheroes.
  • Michiru Kagemori and Nazuna Hiwatashi are a couple of human teens who did not at all expect to become Beastmen, rather like Mei never expected to have to deal with a red panda transformation when it first started happening. All three girls tried to find ways to get rid of their transformations (which were much more permanent in Michiru and Nazuna's case) and go back to life as they knew it, but just like Mei came to adore the red panda and not want to part ways with it, Michiru and Nazuna came to embrace the beastliness and its upsides and ultimately remained as part of Beastman society. For Michiru and Nazuna, this means being in the fringes of human society, which despises them as dangerous. Mei hasn't really come across this kind of discrimination against herself, but she supposes it could happen, since she's not making much of an effort at hiding the panda. Still, she's determined to not regret keeping the panda and reasons she will face things as they come.
  • Mei soon found she's going to have to deal with some form of discrimination in the Pantheon, with some people considering her to be a mutant, and thus sub-human or a deadly dangerous to "real" humans. One of those people is William Stryker, who in his insanity believes it is his god-given to persecute any mutants, and he fully believes Mei is one of the monsters that needs to be eradicated from the world, and the fact that Mei is just a kid certainly doesn't bother him; he immediately killed his newborn son when he turned out to have a mutation as well. While Mei knows the most reasonable thing is to stay as far away from him as possible and let professionals handle him, she can't help but feel her temper flare up in panda form when hearing of Stryker's atrocious intentions towards other kids like herself when they just want to be left in peace and have fun without hurting anyone.
  • Has had Ranma Saotome ask her if her transformation is perhaps a result of a family member falling into a spring where a red panda drowned, and the "curse" passing down through the family since they never learned to fix it. Mei thought the whole spring thing was rather morbid, but anyway, she objected to Ranma calling the panda a curse at all and explained it was actually a blessing granted to her ancestor Sun Yee, who used it to protect her family during war. At length she learned that Ranma and several members of his circle were cursed by falling in those springs where people and animals drowned, turning them into those forms whenever they get wet. In Ranma's case, he turns into a girl, and his father Genma turns into a panda, which Mei reminds him of. Ranma's parents are also unreasonable jerks who want him to become a real man or commit seppuku, which Mei was appalled at and wondered how Ranma wasn't more bothered by it. On the other hand, Mei is also annoyed by Ranma himself because he can be an abrasive, sexist jerk, but she can still sympathize with him over his parental situation.

  • Lonely woodcarver Geppetto makes a puppet modeled after a little boy from a log he received, but thanks to some magic, the puppet comes to life and would be known as Pinocchio. At first, Pinocchio has a very mischievous personality, often getting in trouble at the expense of himself or Geppetto. As he gets involved in further adventures that include being turned into a donkey and getting swallowed by a giant sea monster, he learns more about himself and becomes a better person with the help of a blue fairy. Pinocchio would eventually turn into a real boy, but no matter what happens before those adventures and sometimes after it, he’s the closest thing to a son that Geppetto never had (or previously had in some cases).
  • Even if his wish to become a real boy has come true literally or metaphorically, there’s still plenty more adventures that await Pinocchio. He would end up receiving a visit from a blue fairy (who had been keeping watch of him back then) one night who told him about a place where many parts of his adventure would return in different ways. For a youngster like Pinocchio who learned how to be a better person, he had a feeling that there was still a lot to learn, but the fairy responded that it was a chance to prove that he can hold on to the lessons he learned in this strange setting. It may be more difficult than before given the dangers present in what was described as the Pantheon, but there is a sense of confidence present in both the fairy and Pinocchio that the time spent there will help Pinocchio further, regardless of if he’s a human or a puppet.
  • Upon learning that there were some Pantheonic denizens who had a similarly supernatural birth to someone who wanted a child, Pinocchio was more than eager to meet up with such figures. Momotaro was born from a peach and given to a childless elderly couple and while it brought to mind Geppetto’s wishes to have a son, Pinocchio was equally compelled by the fact that Momotaro grew to become a hero, though he is aware that becoming one is no easy task. As Thumbelina was born from a tulip, Pinocchio couldn’t help but wonder if the magic that created her was similar to the magic that brought him to life. That said, Pinocchio is no stranger to tragedy and learning about Princess Kaguya, who was born from a bamboo shoot and eventually was forced to return to her home on the Moon despite growing fond of Earth, made him wonder how much harder it would be for Geppetto if Pinocchio ended up having a comparable background and fate as that of Princess Kaguya.
  • Much like children of his age, Pinocchio has gotten into a lot of trouble thanks to his curiosity getting the better of him, but it’s through these mistakes that he learns about being a human and how to become better. There were plenty of additional youthful troublemakers that Pinocchio heard of while traversing the Pantheon and while he isn’t above willing to have some fun with them, his past experiences have prompted him to keep his distance from them if things really spiral out of control. While some troublemakers are willing to pull some harmless pranks on unsuspecting people, others are more than willing to hurt others for the sake of an unearned cheap laugh. As much as the possibility is open for young mischief-makers to learn from their mistakes like Pinocchio, there was a hard truth he had to swallow in that some are unwilling to change their ways.
  • If his encounter with The Coachman and similar characters are any indication, Pinocchio is rightfully terrified of those who want to subject children to cruel fates. Being sent to a frightening island and later sold off is one thing, but there were entities in the Pantheon who relished in tormenting children and were willing to murder them. Pennywise was greatly feared among children for what he does to them and is someone who Pinocchio wants to stay far away from as much as possible given the nightmares that would result from an encounter. It was through experience that Pinocchio learned that blindly trusting people who would eventually take advantage of him would end badly and these child-harming monsters are proof that this is such a lesson that Pinocchio wants to follow, even if he is still prone to falling for the tricks of some harmless cons.
  • Pinocchio was able to find a connection with puppets and related mannequins despite being able to fully become human. It became apparent that not every self-autonomous puppet was going to be friendly and it unnerved Pinocchio to learn that some of them such as Slappy the Dummy exhibited murderous tendencies. He’s particularly upset about Chucky, a doll who had the soul of a serial killer that performed voodoo magic to transfer himself to it so that he could continue his murders, with Pinocchio seeing the idea of transferring human souls into puppets for selfish actions as a cruel inversion of his own wishes of being a puppet that wants to turn human. As bad as some of these puppets were, there were puppeteers who wanted to control actual people like puppets in addition to having proper puppets at their command. Pinocchio already had a bad time being turned back into a nonliving puppet against his will in one of his many adventures, so it became clear that such puppeteers who have bad intentions are someone he wants to avoid, though he is willing to help his friends if they somehow fall victim to these wicked puppeteers.
  • Whether the reasons for a non-human entity wanting to become human are sympathetic or not, being able to have that goal fulfilled can be difficult. As Pinocchio was able to achieve that goal in the face of many challenges, he’s come to understand the difficulties deities such as Kikaider face in accomplishing it, while acknowledging that keeping that human form if successful has its own challenges. Mary, a girl stuck living in a painted setting known as the Fabricated World, was someone who Pinocchio was sympathetic towards in regards to struggling with wanting to become human and while he does want to become genuine friends with her, Mary’s violent tendencies have prevented that from happening and her being somewhat jealous about Pinocchio fulfilling his wishes to become human didn’t help either. While he is also understanding of Angela's troubles in wanting to become human, Pinocchio is just as uncomfortable with the methods she took to try and achieve it, even if she eventually atoned for her actions. The fact that there was an Abnormality modeled after Pinocchio who embraced both lying and acting violent that drew even darker parallels to Angela’s motivations made the actual Pinocchio even more hesitant to meet her.
  • Pinocchio once lived through a tumultuous time in Italy, when the country was on the verge of WWII and even found himself involved with the war effort. This included singing propaganda songs that ended with him mocking Benito Mussolini and getting shot for it and later being trained as a soldier of war that he later defied. As much as it was worth it to call the fascist Mussolini a piece of poop, Pinocchio is not going to deny how bad war is for innocents and how dehumanizing it can be for children to become weapons of war. There were many warmongers in the Pantheon, with some dedicated to training children to become dangerous fighters and not only does Pinocchio feel empathy for those who were mentally damaged from being trained to be a soldier at a young age, but he understands that it’s going to take a lot more than just slinging insults at warmongers and their supporters (some more depraved than others) to put prevent any damages they may cause.
  • Not only did Pinocchio learn about the horrors of war, but he also learned to accept death and how to make the most out of one’s life. By virtue of being a wooden puppet, Pinocchio was originally granted immortality (albeit with a gradually extending timer for how long he can stay dead), but he sacrificed it in order to save Geppetto’s life. Even if the Pantheon basically made many big names immortal, that hasn’t stopped Pinocchio from befriending deities who learned to live life to the fullest before inevitably encountering death. While some entities in the Pantheon would embrace immortality, Pinocchio believes that living forever would come with some emotional baggage, mainly the fact that they would eventually outlive their loved ones based on his own experiences with it. There were also a number of Grim Reapers who had varying mindsets about life and death, with Pinocchio having some problems with the ones who are more ruthless in their profession.
  • The story of Pinocchio has become well-known to the point that not only have there been many different interpretations of the character, but a few denizens from the Pantheon are aware of him. Some have had good experiences with him such as Shrek, who sees Pinocchio as a bumbling but well-meaning fairy tale creature that’s helped him out a few times, and Sora and Riku, who have crossed paths with Pinocchio that led to the puppet becoming part of a long list of friends Sora has helped out and subsequently made in his journeys. Others such as “Big” Jack Horner, who became a dangerous magic-hating villain as a result of Pinocchio upstaging him as a child, despise him or, at the very least, have had bad experiences with him. Some of the more unusual retellings of Pinocchio have had him take on different roles such as a robot kid in the future or a troubled vampire hunter. While some of Pinocchio’s experiences took a toll on him and may be a faint memory to him, the fact that he’s gone through a lot for better and for worse is no lie.

  • To the naked eye, SCP-1867 is a variable neon sea slug with telepathic abilities and not having aged in over forty years of containment. But to 1867, he is the 19th century explorer and naturalist Lord Theodore Thomas Blackwood. A quintessential British gentleman, he claims to have been on a number of great yet undocumented adventures across the world and even beyond, and has a long experience tackling the anomalous. What's more, there's strong evidence that a Lord Blackwood of his description exists and was a great adventurer, though there is room for exaggeration. 1867 is likely Blackwood transformed or reincarnated somehow...or a sea slug that ''thinks'' it's Lord Blackwood. SCP-1867 remains completely ignorant to no longer being human and anyone who says he's a sea slug is seen as an absurdity to him...despite still needing to be in water like any non-anomalous sea slug.
  • SCP-1867 might be annoyed by Foundation personnel pointing out that he's a sea slug, but otherwise has a cooperative relationship with the SCP Foundation as he is one of their helpful and friendly anomalies. While human he has had a history with Mr Deeds, who's bell/SCP-662 he used to have in his collection. The two get along, though with his transformation they've grown somewhat estranged. He provides in-depth detail about the geography, botany, zoology, archeology, anthropology, and linguistics, as well as the more arcane mythology, mysticism, and cryptozoology of his adventures and findings to the SCP Foundation.
  • The House of Knowledge cannot verify how many of his tales are true or tall, but he has donated valuable findings to them. Lord Blackwood's journals were given to Lex the Bookworm to read as the SCP Foundation was curious on the opinion of another invertebrate who in spite of his size, has met and fought monsters much bigger than them. As far as Lex is concerned what SCP-1867 says is legitimate, and the sea slug's stories are worth listening to. Lord Blackwood was pleased to hear this as he considers Lex a good conversationalist and the two like to study and swap stories with one another. As a gentlemanly scholar from the same Hall as Lex, Wilson was invited to join their conversation.
  • The existence of Lord Blackwood has further been proven by the ascended historical figures who he met in is travels. One of their more noteworthy encounters was the adventure he had with Theodore Roosevelt himself back in 1883, where the two proved their badass chops by fighting SCP-682 (the "Tarasque") and SCP-076-2 (aka Able). SCP-1867 was glad that T.R found success in his political career and as the former still has a wanderlustnote  the two have started a correspondence with one another. He was happy to introduce the apparent sea slug to an old friend and one of the few to beat him in a fair fight: Scrooge McDuck. Though bewildered that he cannot perceive his transformation, he believes SCP-1867 to be the one and only Lord Blackwood, or at least the reincarnation.
  • SCP-1867's field of study and quintessential Victorian charm made him a person of interest to the Speedwagon Foundation, who amusingly enough Lord Blackwood always assumed was a myth. There he met Jonathan Joestar, a true gentleman who was studying for archeology before Dio through a wrench in everything. The first Jojo is one of 1867's most recurring visitors. Having heard of the menace of both Dio and the creators of the Stone Mask, Lord Blackwood wishes that he could've aided him and his grandson Joseph back in the day. He'd also like to say he was surprised to learn Jack was a vampire thrall, but that'd be rich coming from him.
  • SCP-1867 has requested the SCP Foundation allow him to talk with a number of explorers and detectives so they may give each other worldly advice and experience, and tell long yarns about their seemingly unbelievable tales. Due to the inherent crossover nature of the Trope Pantheon and their own peculiar experiences the O5 Council agreed this didn't break their pantheonic stance towards the masquerade, so the ever-helpful Lord Blackwood was given his due. Though internally incredulous that John Carter and Indiana Jones hadn't heard of him this quickly faded with the three sharing stories of their many adventures with the unusual. Lord Blackwood's friendship was later expanded to Edward Plunkett and Lara Croft because of their study and exploration. John Carter was intrigued to learn that Lord Blackwood also traveled to Mars, back in 1843.
  • Many deities have been transformed without knowing about it, but none can say they remain ignorant of it for several decades. Kuzco believes that SCP-1867 became a sea slug because of some really strong potions by Yzma and has suggested he should interrogate her for the cure, only for Lord Blackwood to ask "sorry if this sounds as rude, but did the llama potion have some side effects you're not aware of?". Having seen a really horrible version of animal transformation, Pinocchio feels that Blackwood is fortunate to still retain his faculties. SCP-1867 was utterly disgusted learning about the context of this and the continuing slave drive of the Coachman, and has sworn he will shut him down.
  • On a lighter note, the Mane Six wondered what would happen if he went through the portal from human to pony world. Would he become equine, human, some other creature or stay a sea slug? Lord Blackwood believes he'd be an Exmoor Pony. Also, though SCP-1867 refuses to realize he's a sea slug he will respect transformations of other deities. Beast Boy wanted to test his Oblivious Transformation by turning into the same species as 1867, only for Lord Blackwood to recognize what he transformed into. He finds his powers fascinating and Garfield feels he would've gotten along really well with his scientist parents. As Lord Blackwood is currently an Intellectual Animal Perry the Platypus and the G-Force consider him a potential ally to their detective/investigation agencies, and while he denies being an animal he is interested in the work they're doing.
  • No-one was quite sure how he perceives interacting with the aquatic side of the Trope Pantheon because he simultaneously needs to live in water and, because he still thinks he's human, thinks he would drown. Upon meeting Spongebob at his house, he envisioned himself wearing an old-timey diver suit. Gary panicked because he has a horrible experience with nudibranches but to his surprise Lord Blackwood was smarter than anyone he's met besides maybe Sandy. Lord Blackwood eventually got to meet Sandy and her inventions, and the two decided to put their minds together for the sake of knowledge. Spongebob tried to get SCP-1867 to eat a Krabby Patty, and while the anomaly didn't consider it all that fancy he did find it quite delicious. He does wonder just what that secret formula that makes it so loved could be, but respects the secret enough not to deal with it.
  • SCP-1867 baffles the residents of Bikini Bottom due to having absolutely no fear of the Cyclops, since while alien by their standards he's still human and mentally at least so is 1867. The Cyclops tried to collect the anomalous nudibranch for his souvenir shop, only for Lord Blackwood to yell at the Cyclops for trying to hunt another human and disregarding the sentience of Spongebob and friends. Thinking he was drunk/on some drug/hallucinating from oxygen deprivation for hearing a sea slug telepathically communicate for him, the Cyclops left. While not the plan, this led to Lord Blackwood getting a hero's welcome in Bikini Bottom for scaring the Cyclops away. The SCP Foundation had to admit this was a 100% true story, and it was one that he shared with Lemeza and Lumisa Kosugi. The two already met the SCP previous at an adventurers convention, telling him of their conflicts with creatures and deities of various mythologies.
  • Albedo cannot imagine how he still thinks pretending to be human is something he likes, mainly because he's projecting his own issues onto SCP-1867. Lord Blackwood considers Albedo to be wasting his intellect on petty vengeance and being frustrated at his transformation. Klaus Heisler also isn't fond of SCP-1867, but out of jealousy; he used to be an up and coming athlete but was turned into a goldfish. He ended up the Butt-Monkey, but Lord Blackwood remains a respected figure (if still a contained one) in a powerful secretive organization. This anger is one-sided, but it wasn't helped by the anomalous slug questioning stories he told about his pre-fish days.
  • Lord Blackwood has been an active explorer since the 1830s, and is usually consistent of being a 19th century resident. However he also recalls being in attendance to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth I; he may not have aged in the forty years when Mr Deeds was in his valet but his childhood background doesn't suggest he's that old. Before he could be further questioned, the Doctor of all people came to his defense by admitting the two had a few adventures back in the day; he first heard of Lord Blackwood from his friendship with his godson, Winston Churchill. Following his ascension in the Trope Pantheon, he's become one of the Doctor's many companions.
    • Being a proud Brit he respects King Arthur, who given the crazy adventures he's been through didn't take much convincing to believe they're real historical figures. What confused him was how there was a female King.
  • Some of the more "normal" things SCP-1867 has supposedly done include meeting up with Abraham Lincoln and finding they have the same height, paying a young Einstein's fare for a taxi, having his sexuality questioned meeting Franz Liszt and trying to become the first man to summit Mt Everest. He has faced down a number of anomalies; he searched for SCP-1000 (aka Bigfoot) in Oregon, 1857, ventured and survived the post-apocalyptic "Land of the Unclean" accessed through SCP-093 (even killing one of said "Unclean" monsters) and dealing with Herman Fuller's Circus of the Disquieting. He has bad memories of the Thuggee leading him to distrust Punjabi, and the vile actions of Mola Ram only help his prejudices. He is also not on good terms with the Hall of Fairies as he broke an Accidental Proposal in the Land of Faerie.
