Pantheon / GUAG Psych Warfare

Go To

These are the noble gods of Psychological Warfare, in charge of maintaining the morale of the Grand United Alliance of Good, keeping the Grand United Alliance of Good happy and entertained, and sapping the morale of the Grand United Alliance of Evil. Though they only enter direct combat infrequently, they are no less valiant than their more aggressive comrades.

Konata Izumi, Goddess of Viral Marketing (Lucky Star, #1 Haruhi Suzumiya Fangirl, Legendary Girl A, Shorty McBlue Hair)

  • Demigoddess
  • Symbols: A star with her face on it, or a chocolate-filled cornet
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Reason for Joining: As a Goddess in the service of Haruhi, she goes where her Lady goes. Also, Cosmos allows her to read any manga she wants without interruption.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Chain of Command, and she likes Cosmos' laid back attitude.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Low-Moderate. She's more of a morale booster than a direct threat, and a minor morale booster at that.

The Nostalgia Critic, God of Caustic Criticism (The Plot Hole)

  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His head on a Warner Bros Circle
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Reason for Joining: A combination of being a good man at heart (despite yanking off from time to time) and Genre Savvy.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: High. Unless Cosmos is secretly keeping or making a factory of Bat-Credit Cards. After merging with The Plot Hole, he then realized that Cosmos kept her words... and Melkor DOES use Bat-Credit Cards. He'll never be seen taking on Melkor's side.

  • Threat Level to Melkor: High. Inheriting from his creator Doug Walker, the Critic made it so that his tongue is sharp enough to cut tank armor. He also has a gun and love for quick and practical solutions to complex evil plots. And as the Plot Hole... he has the power to make whatever Melkor is plotting to be so inane that Melkor could slump in confusion before ever running his plans. However, his powers gained from the Plot Hole were lost when it decided that the Critic "needs to go back", deconstructing the "Demo Reel" world and placing the Nostalgia Critic back in the Awesomeverse. As of January 2013, Douchey McNitpick stabilizes the plot hole.

Chiyo Mihama, Goddess of Cuteness (Chiyo-Chan)

  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Tadakichi, her pet dog
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Reason for Joining: Wants to help Fred Rogers spread his message, and Cosmos/the majority of the GUAG find her adorable enough she's the unofficial team mascot.
  • Advertisement:
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Very high. Cosmos is like the mother Chiyo's never seen.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Non-existent in combat, but Cuteness Overload is infectious, which can be bothersome to the morale of Melkor's troops.

Yui Hirasawa, Airheaded Muse of Guitars

  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: An electric Les Paul guitar
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Reason for Joining: Cosmos liked the her band's music because it's Lighter and Softer compared to the current contemporary music most people listen to nowadays.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: High. The band views her like a mother figure to them.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Non-existent in combat, but Hokago Tea Time's sugaryness is so venomous that it could put Johan Liebert's Mind Rape skills to shame, which would pose a serious threat to the morale of Melkor's troops, as his troops could easily get lured and psychologically assaulted by all the sugaryness Hokago Tea Time's music possesses.

Bugs Bunny, God of Karmic Trickery and Rascally Rabbits (Karmic Trickster, Scwewy Wabbit, Wascawwy Wabbit, Long-Eared Galoot)

  • Greater God
  • Symbol: WB Logo, Carrot, Rabbit hole with mailbox
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Reason for Joining: Wily built a robot factory over Bugs' warren. Of course, he should have realized that that would mean war.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Just so long as Cosmos did not try his patience to the maximum. Otherwise, she should realize that that means war... too!
  • Threat level to Melkor: High.

Yotsuba Koiwai, Goddess of Joy (Four-Leaf, 404 Girl)

  • Demigoddess
  • Symbols: A four-leaf clover, a cicada
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Reason for Joining: She has no idea what she's involved with. She just saw a large group of people "playing" and decided she wanted to join. Her legion of sexual degenerates followed her, and are hard at work both helping the GUAG in her name, and keeping her unaware of the actions of the GUAE.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Very high. Yotsuba trusts anybody who is nice to her, and Cosmos knows where to find the best ice cream.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Extreme. Her ability to induce Heel Face Turns knows no bounds.

Himeko Kurusugawa and Chikane Himemiya, Goddesses of Yuri (Priestess of the Sun and Priestess of the Moon, Lunar Boobs (Chikane))

  • Lesser Goddesses
  • Symbol: The combined insignia of the sun and moon
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Himeko)/Chaotic Neutral (Chikane)
  • Reason for Joining: It is their destiny.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Himeko is unquestionably loyal, but for Chikane... if Cosmos denies her love to Himeko, she will not have that. Thankfully for Chikane, Cosmos isn't concerned about her sexual proclivities, so she has no reason to worry.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Moderate. Melkor is unfazed by Himeko, but Chikane will have none of that.

Mikuru Asahina, Goddess of Moe (Moe-blob)

  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: A wardrobe full of costumes hand-picked by Haruhi
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Reason for Joining: Haruhi made her do it. Though Kyon was good incentive...
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: That information is classified...
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Low. Despite her ability to go back in time to prevent even the creation of the GUAE, Melkor knows that she is not authorized to do that.

Luna Lovegood, Goddess of Zany Theories (Loony)

  • Threat Level to Melkor: Low to moderate.

The Cast of Toy Story, Gods of Living Toys

Ayumu Kasuga, Goddess of Spaciness (Osaka)

  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: A kotatsu
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Reason for Joining: Osaka might be an airhead at times, but even she was horrified enough at the thought someone might try to hurt Chiyo-chan she joined the good guys.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Anyone who's nice to Chiyo-chan is a friend of hers.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Moderate, she is usually relatively harmless, but even the majority of the GUAE will avoid her when she starts to become scary...

Yakko Warner, Wakko Warner, and Dot Warner, Gods of Animated Acting

  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: The Warner Brothers Water Tower
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Assignment: Are currently on "psychological warfare" detail, or as they call it, "Melkor is our new best friend!"
  • Reason for Joining: Because in a world ruled by evil, there is no place for comedy.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: She laughs at their wacky antics, which to them is pretty good reason to give their support.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Low, but they are starting to seriously aggravate him.

Stephen Colbert, God of Truthiness

  • Lesser God. Well, lesser than Stewart anyway.
  • Symbol: American Flag
  • Alignment: Lawful American
  • Reason for Joining: Wants to assist Josiah in defending the virtues of America, and opposes the many beings in the GUAE who have no respect for freedom or liberty.
    • The Grand United Alliance of Evil are the number two threat to America. (The number one threat to America is, of course, BEARS!)
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: She has no problem with America, and jumped at the chance to help out when she asked him to spread the ideals of liberty and the pursuit of happiness to those oppressed by the GUAE.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Low-Moderate, but Melkor's already made a mental note to have him silenced sooner or later.

  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His own cartoon-ish angry face, screaming FUUUUUUCKKKK!!!, while holding a NES joystick
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Reason for joining: The GUAE had captured him and forced him to play Superman 64, Deadly Towers and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde back-to-back-to-back ...and they made him do it without his Rolling Rock. Those bastards!
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: While he does have some loyalty, he's just too pissed off to express them because anybody would willingly put out crappy games, and he won't stand for it. Although of course, his mission is to purge horrible videogames ( which are a product of the GUAE designed to destroy the game industry) from existence so no more will remain, making him show indirect loyalty to her.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: High if he is completely armored. Jumps toward borderline Very High if he calls in Super Mecha Death Christ.

Freddie Benson, God of Webcast Wizardry (Fredward)

The Rock, God of Catch Phrases (Dwayne Johnson, The People's Champ)

  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His bull tattoo, with the trademark eyebrow.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Reasong for joining: The Rock says... IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT THE GUAE IS!! Because the Millions (and Millions) of Rock fans have spoken that they want The Rock to clench his fist, shine it up real nice, turn it sideways and stick it up the GUAE's candy ass! So, the GUAE jabronis better get ready, because The Rock... has come to the GUAG! IF YA SMELLLLLLLL!!!! WHAT THE ROCK!! IS COOKIN'!!!
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: The Rock has a plan, and that plan involves the GUAG and joining Cosmos, and besides, as he told her, he promised the millions (and millions) of his fans he's going to let the GUAE know what The Rock is cooking, so he's helping out of his own free will. As far as Cosmos is concerned, she gave him carte blanche to do what he wants, telling everyone else she doesn't mind.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Moderate-High, especially as a morale boosting influence for the GUAG. Not to mention that he by himself is a kickass wrestler and butts into the Combat Division often to whip some GUAE jabroni asses.

Ahiru/Princess Tutu, Goddess of Dance

  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A little yellow duck
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good

Beetlejuice, God of the Those That Shall Not Be Named (The Ghost With the Most)

  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A copy of the Handbook for the Recently Deceased
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Reason for Joining: Scaring people, be they good or bad.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: When he wouldn't join the GUAE, they went after Lydia. After hearing the GUAG was responsible for getting her out of harm's way, he's joined up. Part of the Psychological Warfare Division.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: High. He can scare various Mooks.

Amu Hinamori, Goddess of the Ghost in the Machine, Dreams (What You Want To Become), and Mid-Combat Psychological Profilers (Amu-chi, Himamori san, Joker, Amu chan, Onee-chan, Hinamori san, X-girl, Hinamori, Amu-senpai, Amulet Heart, Amulet Spade, Amulet Clover, Amulet Diamond, Amulet Fortune)

  • Symbol: The Humpty Lock over top of an X-Egg
  • Alignment: Neutral Good.
  • Reason for Joinment: One of the GUAE's intentions is to eradicate all Dreams forever. This DOES NOT make them likeable towards her AT ALL. There - fore, GUAG was the only option she would allow.
  • Loyalty Towards Cosmos: Relatively High. As was already said they're against the same force, and they relate pretty well towards.
  • Threat - Level Towards Melkor: High: Though she doesn't like to fight human opponents (Although she's fine with purifying X - Eggs), she wills as long as it is both necessary and non - fatal. As for her actual powers, due towards her relatively large amount of Chara (And, there - fore, transformations), she has a large array of abilities, which she generally uses within at least partly innovative ways, and all of them at least acceptibly powerful. Amu also has an EXTRAORDINARILY large Friendship:Defeat ratio, and probably derives alot of her effectiveness from her large ability to persuade almost any - one towards the side of Dreams and Good, and is generally avoided by most GUAE operations due towards the fact that her involvement generally tends towards the GUAG armies towards INCREASING rather than DECREASING. She may not be able to take Melkor down upon her own, but she is definitely a large asset towards any team who tries to do so.

Pinkie Pie, Goddess of Parties (Pinkamena Diane Pie, Fili-second, Equestria's Peppy Party Pony)

  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Cutie Mark (Three Balloons: two Blue ones and a yellow one)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (Heavy on the Chaotic)
  • Reason for joining: Because an impending war is no reason for not partying! And most of the Gods who were mean to her are part of the GUAE.
  • Loyalty towards Cosmos: pretty good. Cosmos is a nice person, and she likes her.
  • Threat level towards Melkor: ...surprisingly high, actually. What with her Reality Warper powers, her ability to maintain morale in the GUAG and undermine it in the GUAE, especially among the GAUE's more science-minded members, and her immense legion of incredibly devoted followers. That, and if things ever really go to shit, she can call up the other five of the "Mane Six" and break out the Elements Of Harmony.

Mion Sonozaki Goddess of Gadflies

  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her gun holster with a "Troll Face" on it.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Reason for Joining: To protect her loved ones
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: High
  • Threat to Melkor: Moderate. Really good at annoying and pissing evil ones off with her wit. Also a deceptively good strategist and melee combatant. Then there's her underworld connections.

Mako Mankanshoku, Goddess of Hilariously Absurd but Fitting Logic

  • Lesser God (Intermediate or Greater God when equipped with a Goku uniform)
  • Symbol: Her two-star uniform, A spotlight with her hands crossed over her head.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Reason for Joining: To help Ryuko and protect her family.

The Bard, Divine Bard Of Jumping At The Call (Lil' Bard, Lil' B, Bardling, Bardlet, Kiwi)

  • Lesser Deity. Can be an Overdeity if leading, keyword being LEADING, the world in the Wandersong
  • Symbol: The bard themselves in the middle of a rainbow wheel.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Reason For Joining: Was asked by Cosmos to join after seeing how many heroes love their voice and how much of a morale booster they were when singing. They happy accepted if it meant their singing would help make the world a better place.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Very High. Not only for her liking their singing but because she reminds them of the Angel that was a messenger of the Goddess Eya that supported them when saving the world.
  • Threat to Melkor: ...Pretty high actually, as thanks to their singing doubling as Magic Music, it makes them a bit of a wild card when it comes to battling should push really come to shove when defending others, even if they prefer not to throw a single punch. Not to mention the fact that they managed to save their world despite literally every single prophecy saying nothing about them, something that Melkor doesn't take lightly. Add in the fact that they are a great morale booster, and they are a great aid to Cosmos' forces.

The Elite Beat Agents, The Godly Trio of Serious Dancing

  • A group of Lesser Gods, though their good dancing causes other deities to take an immediate rank up. When THEY are cheered on as they cheer others on, they become Greater Gods
  • Symbol: Their Badge
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Reason For Joining: The GUAG cried out for help in unison, and they were summoned to join.
  • Loyalty To Cosmos: High, not only for their moral standpoint but also due to the fact that they are the most likely to keep music living.
  • Threat to Melkor: Very high, as their performances can cause other deities to boost up a level in godhood, and they can even be cheered on themselves to increase their own power. Add in other musicians that have Magic Music, most noticeably the Mermaid Princesses, and you have a team that works great with others with increasing power and defense, making them top priority targets to be taken out.

How well does it match the trope?
