Greater Gods

    Don Bluth 
Don Bluth, God of Western Animation
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/don_bluth_8170.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Secret Of Nimh original poster (not the cutesy DVD cover made later)
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Talking Animal Movies, Nightmare Fuel, Sad Movies, WTF? Moments, Dead Parents
  • Domain: Craft
  • Followers: Butch Hartman, Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle, Craig McCracken, Genndy Tartakovsky, Jeff Goode, John R. Dilworth
  • Allies: Walt Disney (his former boss, plus previous holder of the title)
  • Underlings: Mrs. Brisby, Charlie Barkin, King Gator, Chanticleer, Fievel Mousekewitz and all The Land Before Time deities
  • His work was loved by the other members of the Pantheon so much, they made him a god.
  • Was once high priest of the former holder of this position, Walt Disney, until he retired from it in the early 1980s.
  • Of late, a petition is beginning among some of the gods that John Lasseter or Hayao Miyazaki should step up and take over the mantle. Many point out that Lasseter is not without faults as well, and that Miyazaki has announced his retirement in feature film making (not to mention being a creator of anime and not western animation). The case is currently under review in The Court of the Gods.
  • He's not a fan of ANY sequel made of his movies— and not for any reasons of quality. He's said that he can never get over all the stuff he would have done differently himself had he directed any of the movies when he watches them. This does mean ALL sequels of his movies, even the time Fivel went west.
    • Despite that, he has a warm relationship with Littlefoot despite being God of Sequels, and has stated that it's because of characters like him that he isn't surprised so many sequels of his all his movies have been made.
  • His glare can stop any god dead in their tracks, as the Nostalgia Critic was unfortunate enough to find out. He's brought enough ill fate to his own characters that people shudder to think what he'd do to characters he didn't make.

    Osamu Tezuka 
Osamu Tezuka, Divine Father of Manga
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Osamu_Tezuka_StampS_9730.JPG
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Astro Boy's Head
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Loves to Break the Fourth Wall, Cloudcuckoolander, Raygun Gothic,Depicts the horrors of War and The Environment,
  • Domain: Craft, Dream, Glory, Law, Good
  • Followers: All nondeified manga characters
  • Underlings: Astro Boy, Black Jack,
  • Allies: Virtually all manga deities, all good gods in the House of Narrative and Craft, all good Disney gods, especially Scrooge McDuck and Donald Duck, Bambi, Simba
  • Observed by: HAL 9000
  • Rivals: Stan Lee
  • Manga may have existed before his first work, but there was no doubt that he helped standardize what would be modern manga. Osamu's work goes back to 1946. By the time of his death, people have already called him a god for all of manga. Unfortunately, his temple was neglected and his spirit disappeared from the Pantheon. Desperate, Black Jack went to Ichigo and the Reapers to retrieve his soul. The group was successful and this time they called for help to renovate his temple. It took some time but the entire roster of anime deities pitched him to help Osamu settle in the House of Craft. This time, he intends to stay for good.
  • Tezuka is proud that his creations, Black Jack and Astro Boy has attained godhood. Is hoping his other creations find places in the Pantheon.
  • He is well respected by most of the characters who originate from the worlds of Anime and Manga because he is the man whose works began the genre of Anime and Manga, which allowed all of them to come into existence in the manner they have as a result.
  • Osamu Tezuka is very good friends with Scrooge Mc Duck, the character whose design was the basis for all his works, and all of his extended family through Mc Duck's own creator/father Carl Barks. He is often seen interacting with Scrooge and his family, and is very happy whenever Astro Boy drops by for a visit and happily visits with Scrooge's family, whom he essentially considers a Godfather.
    • Heck, Tezuka would get along with any Disney god (excluding the villains) very well. Special note goes to Bambi as he confirmed that he got much of his technique from drawing the deer. Bambi asked for some drawings to see and was delighted in his work.
    • Some of his followers were mad that Disney used his story Kimba the White Lion to create The Lion King. Osamu sees it as an honor that the company would saw his work as worth of adapting. Besides, his story deal with the aftermath and does into the hierarchy, something he wished the movie did.
  • Tezuka is very fond of Timeless River for it's Retraux, and is quite pleased that Sora's form there is a homage to his work. Sora, who is close friends with Donald Duck and Goofy (and one of Black Jack's patients), is delighted to hear this.
  • Is part of an eternal rivalry with Stan Lee, the God of Comic Books. Osama would point out that his manga did not derive from comic books and existed far before they became prevalent. With that said, both artists admit that the two styles have taken information from each other. Yet there are growing factions that want to do war with each other.
  • There is an interesting scenario that almost happened. Osamu was invited to draw some art for 2001: A Space Odyssey. Not wanting to leave his studio, Osamu declined the offer. The movie did well regardless, but HAL 9000 sent some code to The Samaritan over what could have been. The two AI programs have been hush about what they prosaw.
  • Was once asked what manga was about. His answer was this:
"Manga is virtual. Manga is sentiment. Manga is resistance. Manga is bizarre. Manga is pathos. Manga is destruction. Manga is arrogance. Manga is love. Manga is kitsch. Manga is sense of wonder. Manga is... there is no conclusion yet."

    Stan Lee 
Stan Lee, God of Comic Books and Making appearances In His Works (The Man [Lee], Stanley Lieber, Boss Awesome/Fred Fredricksen III)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stan_lee_5.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A generic 22-page comic book, with the words "Excelsior!" and "'Nuff Said!" on the cover
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Comic Books, Superheroes, Editors' Notes, Trope Codifier of Added Alliterative Appeal and Creator Cameo, Cool Old Guy with a small dose of Grumpy Old Man
  • Domains: Craft, Glory, Repose, Wealth.
  • Followers: Every Comic Book creator before and since.
  • High Priest: Steve Ditko
  • Allies: His former partner Jack Kirby, The One Above All, every comic book deity in the Pantheon, especially the Marvel Universe, Iroh, Sheldon Cooper, Chuck Bartowski, Phineas and Ferb, Robot Chicken
  • Enemies: Mephisto... or rather the forces that had him make that deal, Judge Doom
  • Fears: Walt Disney
  • There was once a time when Stan Lee shared the title with Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. Stan's personality was so great, that he decided to take over the temple himself. The other two more or less agreed to step down. Jack Kirby can at least keep his title as the One Above All in the Marvel Universe... along with his post at the House of Craft.
  • DC deities see him as a Friendly Rival at worse; they all know the importance of his role in comic books even if they arrived first. That goes double for anyone from outside the big two.
  • Upon hearing that Stan Lee was referred to as "The Man", Ric Flair immediately issued a challenge to the comic lords, stating that, "To be The Man, you've got to beat The Man! Wooooooo!" This challenge is, as yet, unanswered.
    • On the other hand, Stan Lee dislikes sidekicks... this was the main reason to kill off Bucky for long time, until his impressive return as the Winter Soldier, and "The Man" changed his opinion of him.
  • Stan Lee can be an ass-kicker depending on his version. In one universe, he had the powers of The Hulk and Spider-Man. In another, he's a founding member of SHIELD acting as a school janitor.
    • Also is glad to see Spider-man as a liason in the Toku Base, seeing as he was happy that a Japanese Spider-Man was able to help fight against evil.
      • Stan has once eaten at Hell's Kitchen, considering on making a comic on the aspiring chefs who cooked his meal that night.
  • Out of all of his creations, Spider-Man remains his baby, taking part of every aspect of the character as well as his supporting cast. While he has been supportive of the works of most of his creators, he remains a fan of the pairing of Peter and Mary Jane. His strip depicts an alternate universe where they are still together.
  • Stan Lee often makes cameos in all the major events in the pantheon, granting him an additional seat. Incredibly, he can appear in the MCU as well as the Fox, Sony and Disney universes. He remains a fan of Spider-Man in all his incarnations. There are rumors that he may be a Watcher in human disguise, but the closest that anyone's gotten out of him is that he's a Watchers' Informant.
    • Was surprisingly a villain in Ultimo as Dr. Roger Dunstan. He stated he rather enjoyed his time figuring out whether good or evil is more overwhelming.
    • Stan's booming and instantly recognizable voice also makes him a highly requested narrator in the pantheon.
  • Unsurprisingly has a lot in common with Iroh, the resident Cool Old Guy. Iroh loved his comic strips while Stan Lee admits he makes a great cup of tea despite preferring coffee.
  • There is growing fear among the superhero community that they may be vulnerable to the Dip, concocted by Judge Doom. Stan Lee is the ultimate deciding factor on this ruling, who made his case against it in the Court of the Gods, it remains to be seen how they rule it.
  • Once had a rap battle with Jim Henson. It was evenly match, but then something unexpected happened: Walt Disney crashed the party and proceeded to pwn them at their own game. Stan the Man may be God of Comic Books, but even he can't compete with that.
  • Stan Lee has been a source of frustration with Sheldon Cooper. An initial opportunity to meet him was ruined by his roommates, with him ending up getting a restraining order. He had no such trouble in the Pantheon, and Stan Lee was glad to give a fan of his a coveted signature.
  • There has been claims that Stan Lee is secretly a CIA agent in his spare time. When pressed with those allegations, Chuck merely stated not to comment on it, which only further spurred the rumor mill.
  • Phineas and Ferb thought it was odd that the local hot dog vendor made it to the Pantheon. It was only his revelation of his works that the two recognized him as Stan Lee. They were grateful of meeting with a lot of his creations.
  • Stan Lee was grateful for getting a spot in a Robot Chicken segment. Regardless of its divisive nature. Stan Lee had always believed it could get out of Purgatory.
  • On November 12th, 2018, Stan Lee shed his mortal coil and joined the Pantheon full-time where there was much sadness. Even a few villains came to pay their respects.
  • Excelsior!

Intermediate Gods

    Cuphead and Mugman 
A profile is surely brewing!

Cuphead and Mugman, Sibling Deities of Classic Cartoon Animation (The Cup Bros, Little Mugs)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cuphead_2.png
Cuphead (Left) and his pal Mugman (Right)
  • Intermediate Gods
  • Symbol: Their heads
  • Theme Songs: Don't Deal with the Devil, Its instrumental version and Victory Tune
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Abnormal Ammo, Badass Adorable, Bash Brothers, Made a Deal with the Devil and forced into collecting Soul Contracts, Finger Gun, Non-Human Head, Red Oni, Blue Oni, Pint-Sized Powerhouse, Defeating the Devil
  • Domains: Adventure, Siblings, Old Cartoons, Homages, Running and Gunning, Deals
  • High Priest: Bosko, the Talk-Ink Kid
  • Allies: Mickey Mouse, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Mario and Luigi, Megaman, Felix the Cat, Betty Boop, Ghost Rider, Peacock, The Human Child, Hat Kid, The Iron Giant, Grimsley of the Unova Elite Four, Princess Bubblegum, Roahm Mythril
  • Enemies: The Devil, King Dice, Most in the House of Demons and almost any incarnation of Satan, all soul-selling contractors like Mephisto and Kyubey, The Coachman, The D'arby Brothers, The Incubators, Judge Doom, Flowey, Queen Sectonia, Jafar, The Snatcher
  • On Good Terms with: The Runaway Debtors (Grim Matchstick, Hilda Berg)
  • This is the tale of two brothers, Cuphead and Mugman from the Inkwell Isle, who one day wandered into the wrong side of town and ended up entering into the Devil's casino. They soon found themself on a winning streak playing craps until the Devil himself showed up and challenged them to a High-Stakes bet: If they win, they get all the riches but if they lose, the Devil would take their souls. Thanks to Cuphead's greed the boys ended up losing and the devil forced them into collecting the runaway soul debtors just to spare their own souls, although they both later rectified the mistake by defeating the Devil and burning all the soul contracts, making them both heroes for the people of Inkwell Isle.
  • Their ascension wasn't an official one, as both boys wandered into the pantheon without anyone noticing and only after they were caught sneaking around the Treasure Vault were the boys allowed to ascend for real. Their tale has taught many about gambling and how it can mess up your life. And how you don't make deals with the devil.
  • Given their own experience, both siblings refuse to get near the House of Demons in fear that the Devil would be present wanting revenge for what they did to him. There were many different incarnations of Satan in there but none were the Devil from Inkwell Isle so they felt relieved for that but later they learned that a sizable chunk of those demons are planning something for the Cup Bros, which has unnerved them.
    • While they are not demons, the Incubators have been another group that the cup brothers dislike heavily. They feel pity for those who were tricked into making a contract with them.
  • Made good friends with different deities from the 20-30's era of cartoon animation, most notably the likes of Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, whom the Cup Brothers have taken direct inspiration from.
    • Both brothers also left a good impression on the video game deities too. Most notably they ended up befriending Mario and Luigi, who share a lot of similarities with them. At least the little cups don't have to go around saving princesses.
  • Mugman has made a huge effort in keeping his brother away from the House of Luck and Fortune given that his gambling problem is what caused the whole ordeal with the Devil in the first place. Both brothers were also startled when they came across the D'arby Brothers considering what they do, especially Daniel who resembles King Dice a lot.
  • When they heard of Pleasure Island and how many happy boys have a fun time there, the Cup Bros felt like they were being deceived. Turns out that the Coachman had heard of their ventures and wanted to punish the two naughty little cups on behalf of King Dice who had told him about them. What scared the boys the most was how similar the coachman's freaky smile was to King Dice's but they managed to get away from the Coachman after giving him a karmic beating.
  • The boys were quick to befriend Peacock, who also acts and behaves like she was a cartoon from the 30's. Their personalities aren't that far off either, as Peacock and Cuphead share the same personality with being rash and hot-blooded, which makes Mugman feel like he has to be the Straight Man whenever these two hang around. Peacock feels she can relate to what happened to the boys, although the whole soul collecting business reminds her a bit of the Medici and what they did to her, but she nonetheless is glad that they beat up that lousy Devil in the end.
  • Of all the deities they have met, they never thought that the one who would relate the most to their story is none other than Johnny Blaze. After all, he was forced to work for Mephisto before he bailed out and went to do his own thing, so Johnny respects the boys for that. Mephisto on the other hand has a very low opinion on the Cup Brothers.
  • Rumors have been circulating that Mugman may have a secret crush on Cala Maria. He has denied all claims, but his brother likes to tease him about that.
  • One trip around the House of Gaming let them befriend the Human Child, whose adventure was somewhat similar to theirs. His pacifistic ways reminded them about a turtle who taught them that violence could be avoided if they tried, and so the brothers have tried a more pacifistic approach to certain scenarios... most of the time, at least. Plus they haven't really killed anyone, although they usually avoid talking about what happened with Goopy Le Grande and Wally Warbles.
  • Many have wondered how they would feel if someone drank from their heads. They don't necessarily mind if you ask nicely, though many find it strange that Mugman will drink from himself before the start of a fight.
  • Given how many different foes they have faced in their adventures, both Cuphead and Mugman have been weary to meet a few deities who either resemble them or are a direct reference to them, even if the little cups are on better terms with the runaway debtors ever since they burned all the soul contracts.
    • One day visiting the house of Nature they stumbled upon Flowey, who like always, tried to play a trick on them. Unbeknownst to Flowey, the brothers' encounter with Cagney Carnation has taught them that not all innocent-looking flowers are harmless and they were very good at avoiding his "Friendliness Pellets". Flowey promised to get back at them in the future. After all, their dodging skills proved quite impressive and he'd like to test them again.
    • Jafar was seemingly interested in the powers the two cup boys possessed and tried to ambush them in an attempt to get a better look at them and see if he could steal and harness the brothers' powers for himself. However, the brothers were very familiar with all his tricks after their encounter with Djimmi the Great and beat the ever-loving crap out of Jafar, leaving the battered wizard to crawl away, swearing revenge.
    • While they aren't necessarily hostile, the cup brothers have their doubts about the Blue Slimes. For all they know they could be related to Goopy Le Grande and may want revenge considered what happened with him.
    • When they first saw the Iron Giant, the brothers thought their old enemy Doctor Kahl had invaded the Pantheon with a larger robot, seeking revenge. Eventually, however, they learned of his true nature, and while still a bit wary of him, they agree he is definitely a nice guy (and also because they fight via Finger Gun, while the Iron Giant despises guns)
    • A similar event to the giant happened with Princess Bubblegum, with the cups thinking Baroness von Bon Bon had ascended. After they were proven wrong, Bubblegum was quite willing to spend some time with the pair, and hopes that they can get along with fellow adventuring brothers Finn and Jake, should they meet.
  • Speaking of soul contracts, they always take potshots at Kyubey if they ever so much as see his face; his kind of contracts, even though he holds up their bargain no questions asked, the fact he targets innocent young girls who would not be likely to capitalize on these deals not to mention inevitably becoming Witches means he's arguably worse than the Devil they used to work for.
  • Many of the friends and fans of the duo cheered upon their announcement of a most exciting addendum to their adventures on a brand new isle with brand new foes, tokens and even new friends.

BRAVO!

Ray Harryhausen, God of Stop Motion Animation
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ray_harryhausen_8968.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: Seven skeleton warriors
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Greek Mythology, Middle Eastern Mythology, Cowboys fighting dinosaurs, Giant monsters
  • Domains: Stop Motion Animation, Giant monsters
  • Followers: Tim Burton, Willis O'Brian, Phil Tippett, many of his creations
  • Allies: Jack Skellington, King Kong, Gwangi
  • Ray's temple is guarded by many of his more famous creations, such as the Cyclops, the Ymir, the Giant Octopus, and Mighty Joe Young.
  • Harryhausen's ascension was celebrated by many gods, with Jack Skellington and King Kong chief among the revelers. As a creature of stop-motion animation himself, Jack acknowledges Ray as a father-like figure, while Kong is proud to claim Ray as one of his greatest followers. One of the main attractions at the event was a staged fight between the Man with No Name and Sharptooth, in honor of Ray's love for cowboy/dinosaur fights.
  • Although the Kraken is only truly a follower of Davy Jones, it is known to respect Ray Harryhausen and refuses to harm him.
  • He is one of the sole people Gwangi will not harm, as the dinosaur knows he is the one that created it and respects him for that. As such he can enter Gwangi's valley without the risk of harm by Gwangi or his followers.
  • His craft is feared by Mabel Pines, due to her fear of stop motion animation.

Demigods

    Gumball Watterson 
Gumball Tristopher Watterson (né Zach "Gumball" Tristopher Watterson), God of Medium Blending (Gummypuss, Trisha, The Blue One, Princess GumballOopsEggWobbleUnderpants from the country of GumbaldNoWigBattleAxeNinja)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/season_3_gumball.png
  • Demigod (Rank changes depending on whatever situation Gumball is in)
  • Symbol: His head, or an 8-bit rainbow
  • Theme Song: "Make The Most Of It" duet with his adoptive brother Darwin; alternatively his show's opening song
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good, with some moments of True Neutral or even Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Snarky blue cats who are otherwise nice, being able to deal with a lot of crap, finding himself in weird situations due to living in Elmore, living in a world made of art styles, Only Sane Man, Attractive Bent-Gender, Brilliant, but Lazy, The Cynic
  • Domains: Weirdness, Art, Family, Friendship
  • Heralds: His family, which including his parents Richard and Nicole, his sister Anais and his pet-turned-adoptive-brother Darwin (yes, really)
  • Allies: Bart Simpson, Finn the Human, Jake the Dog, Mordecai and Rigby, Roger Rabbit, Madame Foster, Belle and The Beast, Charlotte LaBouff, James Bond
  • Enemies: Ralph Wiggum, Dolores Umbridge
  • Opposes: Homer Simpson, Lt. Mary Sue, Deadpool, Raven Darkholme/Mystique.
  • Annoyed by: Lisa Simpson
  • Conflicting Opinion: Mr. Small, Haruhi Suzumiya
  • Admires: Naruto Uzumaki
  • Ascended because his series not only employs having different artstyle on a constant basis, but was built on the foundation of that concept, even had stories and gags focus on the different art style.
    • Because of his series's original intention of finding a home for abandoned characters, Madame Foster took a liking to him. However, Gumball initially tried to run away from her because he thought she suspected his family was screw up and tried to adopt him. After resolving his misunderstanding through a face-to-face, Gumball can be seen hanging out neat the Foster home as he is surrounded by beings as weird as his friends are.
  • His temple is one of the most peculiar place in the Pantheon: All sort of form of different art styles jumble together, yet oddly never overpower each other. This is also the only place where gods from different medium can get together without having an Art Shift. This caused his temple to be a favorite place for Roger Rabbit to hold his toon supporting group meeting to respect each toon's art style and origin.
  • After the Pantheon found out that reality of Elmore can undo itself if his family is out of money (long story), the House of Commerce has been seen lending loans for his family during hard times for mutual benefit on both side and to keep his important temple always watched and attended.
  • He once visited Lisa Simpson's temple as he heard that she was somewhat similar to his little sister Anais. However, he was annoyed when she lectured him about the time he grossly mistreated his school pet hamster and threaten to report the authority on him. He simply retorted by reminding her of the time she was responsible for her school's pet hamster dying. When she in effect retorted that she had a lot of other pets to take care of than Gumball ever did at the time, Gumball simply responded that she should know better than to overextend herself, and that he has a lot more simply happen to him for even existing. This led him to bond with her brother Bart, as well as their shared love of causing mischief. He does draw several lines he won't cross, which annoys Bart slightly. Because he likes Bart better than Lisa, this caused him to dislike Homer for how frequently he strangles Bart.
  • Absolutely, for the love of god, do NOT call him "Zach". After the Split-Personality Takeover shenanigan of the last time that name was called, his mother Nicole has swore to pursue the person who brings up that name and horribly kills them if it's the last thing she does right after snapping Gumball out of his split personality. And you do NOT want to piss off the woman who once brought a fully grown Tyrannosaurus Rex to his knees.
  • Despises Wiggum for how shockingly incompetent he is, which reminds Gumball of the instances where the police force of Elmore was useless like him.
  • Charlotte La Bouff was very excited when she heard that a princess had ascended the House of Craft and decided to visit it with her friend Tiana. However, while Charlotte kept shrieking in the new princess's ears about how awesome it is to meet her, Tiana thought that the princess's name is too weird and oddly English, which led her to discover that it was actually Gumball wearing his mother's wedding dress with the tiara after his dad had done the laundry and shrunk his clothes (again!) While Charlotte was disappointed that Gumball is not only a boy but also not royalty, she instantly squeed over how cute his family was.
  • Has mixed feelings about his teacher Mr. Small's ascension. While Gumball centainly likes him, he doesn't really trust Mr. Small managing more than two people at the same time, led alone an entire temple, due to how... unstable he can be.
  • He can be seen hanging around with Finn, Jake, Mordecai and Rigby to share stories about the bizarre adventures they went on. Gumball especially likes Mordecai and Rigby as he is also somewhat of a slacker like them.
  • Gains serious points from Belle and the Beast after they discovered that his girlfriend Penny is a shapeshifter. While it's true that Penny can change into any shape she wants, they are still impressed that he managed to look past her appearance and didn't change his affection towards her, even going to extreme lengths to protect Penny and prove his feelings for her after she ran away to the forest because she thought herself a monster.
    • Because he was dating a shapeshifter, he was disgusted with Mystique's gross way of using her power.
  • He and Darwin are in constant watch from the House of Time and Space after they accidentally broke a countdown clock and ends up traveling through timelines by changing the course of history. Needless to say, any and all countdown clocks (even those from the fourth wall) were kept away from those two, some with Deadpool's help. (Yes, they bribed me with chimichangas).
  • Hates, hates, HATES Dolores Umbridge with every fiber of his being due to how she reminds him of his own teacher Ms. Simian on her worst day Up to Eleven.
  • Has a very tense relationship with Lt. Mary Sue due to Gumball thinks that she is annoying and how similar she is to one of his least favorite classmates, Alan. The Pantheon tries to keep them away from each other as much as possible after hearing the things he did to Alan (including, among others, selling Alan's parents to circus performers) just because he wants to feel superior.
  • Has a very tense relationship with Haruhi. Haruhi is VERY excited to have such a fascinating deity ascended, with the entire Elmore no less, and spent a lot of her time watching the town. Gumball on his part found this very annoying and a blatant violation of his privacy. This gets more complicated when he learned that Haruhi is the goddess that holds the Reset Button and has power over the Status Quo. While Gumball is certainly graceful for all the time that her power saved him and his family from dealing with the mess they cost, he certainly called Haruhi out the time where her power didn't work that caused everything him and his family did comes back to bite them HARD, as well as the time which her power couldn't handle the fact that his dad Richard merely got a job, thus ended up causing a Reality-Breaking Paradox in Elmore and lamented how ridiculous that is. Amongst non-ascended members of Elmore, she gets along with Sarah the best, and both imagine outrageous scenarios together.
  • Was very excited that when speaking Japanese, his voice sounds like Naruto Uzumaki as the latter was a ninja and, more importantly, he managed to raise above his status as the loner of his town and become Hokage. However, Gumball doesn't plan to become a ninja himself after failing horribly at learning taekwondo.
  • He has some pretty sick rap skills.
  • Has occasionally exploited his Medium Blending powers, turning himself, and the people of his world, Animesque, humanized, or both.

Attenborough's work resulted in him being invited to the Pantheon, where he can narrate and document the natural worlds beyond Earth, and the magnificent creatures inhabiting them.
  • With his arrival in the Pantheon, Attenborough made himself right at home, travelling to the House of Beast and documenting several species that had gone extinct in his lifetime, including the thylacine note , Caribbean monk seal note , heath hen note , and, most notably, reuniting with the Pinta island giant tortoise known as Lonesome George. George was the last of his kind, and his death in 2012 served as a reminder of the importance of conservation, which Attenborough, who was among the last people to meet the tortoise, endorses very much.
  • While he has travelled the multiverse and showcasing the marvels of nature on other worlds, Attenborough feels most at home on Earth. The reason for it is because Earth is the only true planet - a planet outside of the fictional spectrum - that has complex life, and it is just as spectacular and unique as anything seen in the cosmos. That said, he occasionally likes to make journeys back into the prehistoric past and encounter the many organisms that came before man, with the non-avian dinosaurs being at the top of the list.
    • In his journeys across the multiverse, Attenborough made himself a number of trustworthy friends, most of whom act as guides while traversing the worlds. Three of his guides, Vixen, Aquaman and N, all share an incredible connection to nature - not to mention all being big fans of his work - and as such have helped to educate the naturalist on other fictional creatures, with Pokémon being of much discussion. It's actually through N that Attenborough came to respect the time-traveling Celebi, who often pops in during filming to bring snacks or to have some fun. However, not everyone shares in the fun times. David and the Monster Hunters find it very difficult to work alongside each other, due to the former wanting to leave the monsters in peace and the latter wanting to make armour and weapons out of them. Doesn't help that more often than not, the Hunters are busy protecting Attenborough from being turned into Rathalos's next meal.
  • David Attenborough is loved and respected by almost every deity in the House of Beast, due to his charismatic nature and friendly demeanour. That said, he sometimes has a hard time entering the Sub-House of birds. It may have something to do with an encounter with an aggressive male capercaillie when first entering the house. That said, as long as it's not capercaillie breeding season, Attenborough will enter and document the majesty of the Pantheon's avian residents... even if they want to interrupt him.
    • He does however, not want to talk about his last encounter with a rather peculiar lyrebird. It's actually the reason why he avoids Jerry Seinfeld and his crew.
    • He does not like rats. At all. When asked why that is all he responded with was simply, "Always check the lavatory."
  • Even if he is a Friend to All Living Things, Attenborough does have standards, and as such, he doesn't see eye to eye with Napoleon, due to his corrupt nature and how his Animal Farm became a dead ringer for Josef Stalin's Soviet Union. Naturally, the tyrannical swine has no time for the complaints of another human and thus keeps his distance. He also has trouble trusting Poison Ivy and Viridi who, despite being fans of his work, want to wipe humanity right off the map to restore The Green. While he may dislike human overpopulation, even David finds the plant-based deities methods to be too much and keeps his distance.
  • Attenborough doesn't consider himself a god, as he is a firm supporter of the theories of evolution and natural selection, and has a very low opinion of those who are fundamentalists that goes back even to the Mortal Realm. The House of FAITH, as well as other religious figures have mixed feelings on the matter; some like Seymour Guado, Leopold Goenitz, and Judge Frollo have declared David a heretic and want to see him dead, while others like Palutena, Erica Fontaine, and even Aslan respect Attenborough's beliefs and have offered to help him no matter what.
  • As an advocate for conservation efforts and preserving the environment, Attenborough is in full opposition of those who would want to destroy nature for their own gain. Mr. Burns and Looten Plunder are high on the list due to their destructive, monetary habits - not to mention fuelling the powers of Hexxus, Anton Arcane, and the Lich at the same time with their pollution - while Pokémon Hunter J, Gaston and Cruella de Vil receive his disgust due to the treatment of the Pantheon's diverse wildlife. He's also not a fan of the senseless destruction unleashed by The Firebird - which gave him an ally in the form of the Spring Sprite - and Lysandre's desire to preserve the world's beauty by destroying it with the Ultimate Weapon. Some of these same deities were quick to point out how Attenborough once ate raw sea turtle eggs and kept a "pet" ape back in the fifties, but David was just as quick to fight back, acknowledging how those acts are frowned upon in The New '10s and his desire to make amends with his past actions.
  • Attenborough's love for the natural world and his desire to preserve it is the main reason he was made an honorary member of the Nature Preservers, as he serves as a voice for those without a voice.
  • From time to time, Attenborough will take time out of his busy schedule and indulge in some good old fashion self parodies of his narration style. One such example happened when he narrated the intro to Adele's Hello. The entire Pantheon keeled over in laughter and it was even rumoured that Melkor himself even gave a slight smirk upon hearing it.
  • "It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living."

  • Rivals: Eiji Niizuma
  • Enemies: Airy, Herr D. D. Drosselmeyer
  • Admires: Everyone hailing from Shonen Mangas (especially if they are from Shonen Jump or their story is "dark shonen"), especially Rohan Kishibe.
  • Admired by: Yayoi Kise, Murakumo, Nagi Sanzen'in
  • Opposes: Unreasonable Fandoms
  • Uneasy around: Tharja
  • They ascended after they got their Manga Reversi made into an Anime. It took them lots of research, moral-testing, effort and patience but they actually did it!
  • The first thing they did after moving all of their stuff into The new studio that is their temple was to go autograph-hounding since they couldn't believe that the characters they have been reading were real.
  • For your information, their real names are Mashiro Moritaka and Akito Takagi. Ashirogi Muto is just a pen name they use for themselves as a whole since they work together on their Mangas. They are not related to Yugi Muto in any way for this reason (though they do get along).
    • Also, their "followers" aren't so much followers as they're rivals. All of them are trying to get their position or to get ascended in any other way to keep competing, so they will resent it if you call any of them that (At least in front of them). In particular, Eiji Niizuma seems to be eager to accomplish either one...
  • They seem to get along with the ToQgers and Alice, both of whom seem to be really impresed with their creativity at the time of making a story.
  • In spite of prefering unconventional Shonen premises (AKA "dark shonen"), they only make those for the sake of creating interesting stories for the entertainment of everyone. It's for this reason that they don't like Drosselmeyer at all, who creates angsty stories for angst's sake and makes all of his living characters suffer.
  • Can be found in their temple most of the time, brainstorming ideas for their mangas or working on the manga. Or researching in the Library, or in the House of Love, in their honeymoon with their wives.
    • Mashiro met Tsubaki Yayoi there, who thought that the reason why he started working on manga (his love for Miho that he managed to get married with her) was so romantic. He wasn't able to do anything but blush and nod to all of her statements and avoided the House of Love after his honeymoon ended for a while. Mind you, he did like Tsubaki as a friend but the subject is still a bit awkward for him.
  • They are admired by the Doujinshi-Makers Nagi Sanzen'in, Yayoi Kise and Murakumo since they represent what they want to become. They respond to this by giving them tips and advice and telling them to never give up on their dream.
    • Hiyori Tamura also likes them but she horrifies them. Not only did they not like to find out that the Doujinshi she made was all about... that, it definitely horrified them when they saw that one was about them.
  • Mashiro has become friends with Sailor Moon, Hinata Hyuga and Mikuru Asahina. He wasn't really expecting girls to have a voice similar to Miho. He has wondered if he should write a manga from Hinata's perspective so Miho could ascend to voice her. He and Takagi were also very amused to hear her voice in Aila Jyrkaiänen.
    • The same could not be said about Airy. Mashiro cringed and really hated to hear her voice from such a vile villain and hopes she never voices someone like her.
    • While she might not be that evil, hearing Miho's voice from Tharja has given both mangakas the creeps.
  • At first Ashirogi believed that Eiji Niizuma ascended but it wasn't the case, they just heard Accelerator from the distance. Ironically, Accelerator himself confused Mashiro for Touma Kamijou. Much laughter ensued from Takagi's side. They eventually met with Touma and befriended him.
    • Takagi practically had a field day when he heard his partner's voice coming from Ataru Moroboshi and Guy Shishioh, since he couldn't believe that his friend could sound so "perverted" or hot-blooded. Mashiro once tried to pay him with the same coin... And failed because the only god in the Pantheon who sounded similar to him was Yuji Sakai, who really doesn't sound so different from him.
  • Don't mention the name Taro Nanamine on their presence, EVER. Ashirogi Muto might not be as dangerous as Tron but gosh does it have the same effect as mentioning Dyson. The reason being that he's a deluded fanboy, a cheating cheater that cheats and is an utter disgrace to the very trope they represent.
  • Another thing that annoys them to no end is Fan Dumb. When Nanamine was eventually spotted on near their temple, Yayoi, Murakumo and Nagi drove him away from there. This earned them a scold from Ashirogi as soon as they got Nanamine out of the Pantheon, telling that nobody deserves to be lynched on like that by crazy fans. They are talking from experience. Especially Mashiro.
    • This has made Mashiro bond with Masaya Aoyama and Ron Weasley, who get A LOT MORE of this treatment.
  • Despite Shonen being their area of expertise, they seem to know a lot about the writers and writing process behind the members of the Toku Base. In fact, that knowledge and their rival's words inspired them to make one of their mangas. They seem like they could get along with any of them (apart from the aforementioned ToQers).
  • Currently working on a manga based on Jin Kisaragi, on Tsubaki's request. They have decided to call it Blue Ice Prince Jin Kisaragi.
  • When Rohan ascended, he instantly declared them rivals. The two were happy to see another Shonen Jump character ascend, and look up to him greatly.
