  • Opposes: YHVH
  • One day, a floating structure suddenly appeared in the House of Gaming. It looked like a temple in the sky, populated with angels. While Mario and Sonic went to investigate, because they were angels, the GUAG quickly mobilized to send envoys to negotiate with the newcomer before the GUAL could do the same. The GUAE and GUAC also mobilized (and briefly worked together) to destroy this newcomer before their influence could spread (the GUAD and GUAM had other priorities at the time, which was why they didn't actively participate, though they did send agents to observe the goings-on).
    • As it was, some time after the final battle against Tanzra, the Master had found himself and his angels, as well as the Sky Palace, in the Trope Pantheons, without a clue as to how they got here. His angels observed a man clad in red and blue and a blue blurry form jumping their way to their location, walking on the clouds like it was solid ground, and the Master instructed them to inquire on their situation. And than that's when demons started attacking the Sky Palace, shortly followed by angels not under the Master attacking those demons. Mario participated in the battle as well, while advising Sonic to send word to the Court of the Gods as soon as possible to prevent a power play from the GUAL.
    • During this skirmish, the Master's angels found a statue inside the temple that the Master could animate, and he did so, shortly joining the fray as the GUAG forces and representatives of the Court caught up.
    • Once the battle has been concluded with the Evil-Chaos coalition fleeing and the Law side pursuing them, the Court of the Gods explained to the Master and his angels about the Trope Pantheons and that the Master has been nominated for ascension to represent A God Is You, where the player controls a deity.
  • Part of the Master's ascension package is that he has access to all his Miracles, and that his avatars are always at full power with Magic. And with his own special set of followers, he doesn't need to garner favor from the masses, though he still does so anyway. Also, the Sky Palace serves as his temple, which means he often roams around the Pantheon, though like with Diogenes, a blank spot of land is reserved for him. It's also where he and his kind would respawn should he ever repeat what he did near the end of ActRaiser 2; crash the Sky Palace at a barrier to reach Tanzra's dimension.
    • Speaking of avatars, his angels and followers with help from the House of Craft have constructed statues of his likeness and scattered them all over the Pantheon so that the Master can inhabit them and wander around. Of course, these statues run the risk of being destroyed, stolen, or vandalized. And just in case, as was discovered in their first day in the Pantheon, there is also another statue in the Sky Palace for emergencies.
  • For reasons no one can tell, since the Master's ascension, his Sky Palace and angels are often at the House of Craft or any place that needs demolishing. And they always herald a fire or earthquake that brings down what needs to be brought down and (generally) leaves the surrounding best quality structures intact.
  • Due to his Manifest Destiny tendencies and clearing out wild land for his people to urbanize, he's often at odds with the extremists in the House of Nature.
  • As he works for the ultimate benefit of his people, he's also against YHVH, especially after hearing of his motives at the timeline where Nanashi takes him down. The fact that all He cares for is eternal worship and blind obedience doesn't help.
    • By default, and because they had attacked his Sky Palace, he opposes the GUAE and GUAC.
    • As such, the Master has decided to join the GUAG, as their goals best match his. Even if he might eventually not be needed or worshippped anymore once they do win, that's perfectly fine with him.
  • Not to be confused with the Doctor's nemesis, who also goes by the title "The Master", and he has sworn to have him removed.
  • When hearing his theme, some folks half-expect a history lesson to come up for some reason.
  • Is sorrowful of the Imperium's situation. Not only are they being screwed over by the Chaos Gods and all manner of galactical threats, they abhor the idea of innovation and progress (at least in their homeworld; they're a little more tolerant in the Pantheon). And knowing their xenophobia, the Master will be unable to lend his aid to them and will likely be besieged and struck down.
  • Kanako's incredibly jealous towards him for his gaining enough faith to reach his power level and is considering stealing his followers' idea of erecting statues all over the Pantheon for her own empowerment. The Master on the other hand has no comment so far.

  • Conflicted on: Nine the Phantom
  • Opposes: Vergil
  • After five hundred years of being sealed away without her memories, a woman woke up in Europe with vast skills and powers revolving around magical gunplay, martial arts, and a demonic aide called Madama Butterfly. Going by the name of Bayonetta, she went out seeking to discover her identity while taking down every angel of Paradiso that was seemingly carved out of marble to try to take her down. She discovered that not only was she, in fact, an Umbra Witch, a member of an ancient magical clan dedicated to protecting the world's sacred darkness, she was the offspring of an Umbra Witch mother and a father that belonged to the light-based clan called the Lumen Sages — a union which led to the destruction of both of their clans and resulted in her being sealed away and her memories wiped out for her own protection. Oh, and that demonic aide? Their contract together is the source of Bayonetta's powers.
  • Contrary to her bloody origin and training, Bayonetta is an outrageously carefree person who handles the angels sent after her with a mixture of playful sadism, camp, and sheer joy, all while remaining untouched by the carnage and ruin around her. This combination of pure sexiness and badass power results in everyone capable of getting aroused doing so whenever Bayonetta walks, talks or fights. No exceptions.
  • She is such a formidable fighter, much stronger than her position would indicate, that she was actually considered to join the House of War or the House of Combat, but her ally and fellow Stylish Action game character Dante Sparda suggested that this is where she most belonged, and she'd give the House of Love a powerful defender if it were ever threatened. Bayonetta accepted the suggestion with a smile, a wink and a lick of a lollipop. Many gods are still taking cold showers.
  • Many have thought she is Dante's long lost sister, but Bayonetta denies any claims of descendant from Sparda. She also has a very friendly relationship with Dante which would be… awkward if they were siblings. Although considering it's rumored that Dante's mother was also an Umbra Witch and Madama Butterfly carries a very similar appearance to Sparda in his true demon form, there might at least be some connection between the two families…
  • Has found a kindred spirit in Akeno Himejima, who looks upon her as a mentor. Bayonetta is often shown teaching Akeno some of her dances, and sometimes they share ideas for 'punishments' against their foes. Moreover, Bayonetta often teases Hyodo Issei, and Akeno, who is one of his haremettes, usually joins her, since she finds her beloved's reactions to be very amusing. Furthermore, Bayo is openly encouraging Akeno to become Issei's mistress.
    • The same thing can't be said, however, for Koneko Toujou, who, given her dislike for perverted things, thoroughly dislikes Bayonetta. When the chips are down, she will try to help, albeit reluctantly. However, Koneko did admit that Bayonetta reminds her a bit of Kuroka, her older sister. As a matter of fact, Bayonetta befriended Kuroka when she ascended — even if that came to Koneko's own annoyance. The fact that Issei's other haremettes — Rias, Asia, Xenovia, and Irina — have all decided to attend the Umbra Witch's lessons alongside Akeno only makes things harder for the young Nekomata, who hesitantly decided to attend the Umbra Witch's lessons as well.
  • Many Goddesses of the Pantheon are still trying to find a way to replicate her hair, but none has succeeded so far.
    • Especially when they found out that she cut her hair. She stated that she just wanted to reinvent herself.
    • She somehow got inspired to make her own outfits based off on Peach, Daisy, Link, Fox, and Samus. While she was at it, she even made a copy of Mario's hat (though she slapped a "B" on it for cosmetic purposes) and mustache for a cosplay shoot. Needless to say, Mario was not amused (or aroused).
  • It's been discovered that Balder is not responsible for his crimes but is in fact being controlled by an entity known as Loptr, whose soul is trapped within Balder's body. Bayonetta has gone on a quest since, looking for a way to separate Loptr from Balder to free her father from evil.
    • Rick has offered a hand to help her to free her father as he understands quite well what he's going through. Just look at what happened to his girlfriend! The aforementioned Akeno has also pledged her support for Bayo for this cause: she's no stranger from the drama of dealing with issues regarding her father.
  • She is responsible for Jeanne's ascension into the Pantheon, as she was the one who suggested that Jeanne could take the position of being the Goddess of Mirror Bosses, as well as fought Jeanne before the Court of the Gods in a very impressive test battle to prove it.
  • To the surprise of, well, EVERYONE, herself included, she was selected by Master Hand to be the final invited participant to one of the Smash Bros. events. She took to the tournament wielding Love is Blue and Scarborough Fair, but Rodin forced her to tone down her combat abilities so that no one could get super aroused by her naked body.
    • During the tournament, her "If you need to learn how to talk to a lady, ask your mum!" taunt has become notorious among the roster, since a third of them have Missing Mom syndrome. Lucas has been especially scared of fighting her because of this.
    • When she first showed up, she was so overpowered that the rest of the cast demanded that Master Hand nerf Bayonetta. Even then, she was still very powerful, though not to Meta Knight's levels.
    • She also finally met the leader of the Phantom Thieves after several people noted that there was a resemblance between the two, resulting in a rumor that he was her son from an alternate realm of reality. This wasn't her first rodeo with "alternate-reality son" rumors, although it was more or less in good fun compared to another one which had been previously investigated for awhile before being quitely dropped. While both of them were somewhat annoyed by this, they were more or less pleased with each other's company, gaining a healthy respect for each other for their great deeds.
  • The question of whether Dante or Bayonetta is the superior fighter was hotly debated for quite a while amongst the denizens of the Pantheon, and was finally answered with a heated Death Battle. For the first time in Death Battle history, their allies Trish and Jeanne invited themselves in and assisted their partners before eventually splitting off to clash with one another. The winner turned out to be Dante: the demon hunter edged out the witch in pretty much every regard, ultimately skewering her and blowing her up. Thankfully, it was only her avatar that was reduced to Ludicrous Gibs, not Bayonetta herself. Despite this, she was rather sulky, quietly leaving to blow off some steam on a small army of angels while still physically sore from being forcibly jerked out of Wiz's virtual world. During this, her grumblings revealed she also takes a bit of offense at Boomstick calling her a "Monkey Witch".
  • In an attempt at improving her arsenal even further, Bayonetta has made trips to the House of Demons. While she has yet to successfully make a contract with any of them (to the relief of the rest of the Pantheon), she has become quite friendly with the Aensland sisters.
  • Was once ambushed by the mercenary gunmen Reaper and Deathstroke, who'd teamed up to collect a bounty that had been placed on her head. While she and Madama Butterfly were able to hold them at bay, Slade and Reaper still managed to close in ever so slightly…until another stylish woman with an English accent started zipping around and shooting at them from several angles, which eventually irritated the two into calling a retreat. Learning that this woman was the famous Tracer people were comparing to her, she struck up a conversation about the source of Tracer's abilities, and the two became fast friends, each liking the other's style.
  • While visiting Rodin, she was encoutered by Lady, who decided to go see the weapons dealer herself after hearing of him through tales of Bayonetta's exploits. The two women traded stories, and Lady related to Bayo's issues with Father Balder because she too had to put down her father to stop his evil ambitions. While Lady understands Bayonetta's situation with Loptr controlling Balder since she thought Vergil was doing something similar with Arkham, she still can't condone a father being treasonous and evil.
    • Bayonetta and Lady's conversation turned to the issue of Dante and his brother Vergil, and through that they ended up mentioning a witch called Kat who herself has issues with both fathers and demons who's been seen around the two brothers. Finding her, the two discovered her story and empathized with her both for her world being completely overrun by a demonic conspiracy and for her having to kill her demonic stepfather with the help of her counterpart to Vergil, which lead to her joining his Order against the banker Kyle Ryder, who was actually that world's Mundus.
    • On that note, she was already aware of Vergil's rivalry with Jeanne, and the rumors of Jeanne being the mother of Vergil's son Nero. Learning that Kat's Vergil ultimately manipulated both Kat herself and his own brother in order to take Ryder's throne for himself rather than truly free humanity did not do Bayonetta's opinion of the Dark Slayer any favors, especially when Lady herself bitterly recounted that the real Vergil had ripped off his own son's Devil Arm and created a monster out of himself which went on to destroy his and Dante's own hometown with a demonic portal, all out of desperation to heal up from his injuries and get strong enough to beat Dante.
  • Desiring to free Father Balder from the evil of Loptr, she inquired with the Court of the Gods as to why Loptr was around undetected. The ensuing investigation revealed that Aesir had reached the Pantheon eons ago, thus giving his halves access as well. She asked for Loki to be brought into the Pantheon as a result, which was granted. Thus, the two embarked on a plan. Loki took the Left Eye of Darkness back from Bayonetta, drawing the corrupted Balder into a fight to steal the Left Eye from him. However, backing Loki were Bayonetta and Jeanne, Lady and Trish on a Devil May Cry commission, Rick Taylor, Akeno Himejima, and Phantom Thief Joker all fulfilling a promise to help her free Balder. This was the plan. Trish and Akeno irritated Balder with their lightning attacks and survival/defense skills, occasionally assisted by Rick intercepting and throwing Balder mid-move and Lady providing some well-timed gunplay, all of which provided openings for the Umbra Witches to attack him and actually do damage. Eventually Loptr had enough, throwing the lion's share of his power into a final assault on Loki; however, with a rocket launched from Lady's Kalina Ann weapon, Joker working his craft while hidden in the Metaverse, and some Umbra magic on the part of herself and Jeanne, Bayonetta was finally able to eject Loptr from her father's soul, at which point Loki begrudgingly forced Loptr to fuse back with him into Aesir, officially exposing the God of Chaos in the Pantheon.
    • In the end, Balder was freed and Loptr was not, and her father promptly demonstrated his gratitude to everyone involved as well as resumed his expression of belief in humanity's best shot. This included accompanying her on her next visit to the Occult Research Club in hopes of striking a deal to help them.
  • Was already curious about the Emperor of Mankind, seeing the great potential within humanity ever since she and Balder worked together to defeat Loptr in the first place. The moment where she knew he was a good one was when he, after hearing of his son's encounter with her father, used his influence with the Court of the Gods to press a case and have her mummy Rosa revived and brought in as daddy's Herald. Being reunited with both her parents in the Pantheon, she finally cried Tears of Joy. Also got to laugh a bit at Dante's jealousy on the matter, as the best he could do as far as reuniting family was to settle on a straightforward no-bullshit rivalry with his brother...
    • ...at least, until Sparda, finally, miraculously, turned up ascended in the Pantheon after decades of having gone missing and being presumed dead, and with the Court of the Gods' approval used the power of their contract to bring Eva with him as his Herald. As shocked as she was to see him, Sparda was also pleasantly surprised at seeing two more surviving Umbra Witches in her and Jeanne, believing that his wife had been their Sole Survivor. Both Bayonetta and Jeanne requested a contract with him, but he politely declined, stating that his wife was the only one for him.

  • Fears: The Dovahkiin
  • Sometimes, in order to get certain results, certain members need to participate. Sometimes, they're a liability if you do, but you have to suck it up and bear it, all for the sake of the story, a better ending, or even some beneficial additions later. And the "lucky" candidate selected by the Court was Fae, Divine Dragon of Elibe, and she who needs to survive to track down the real villain of Roy's story Jahn, the man behind King Zephiel.
  • She was happy to see Roy and Lilina upon finding them in the Pantheon, after they had parted pays after defeating Jahn and restoring Idunn, and also got to meet their parents. Also, now that they are all deities, she doesn't have to worry about outliving anybody.
    • There were those who worried that her encounter with Lyn might trigger hostility, but her early encounter with Tiki (as well as potentially meeting Fae once before) ensure that that wasn't the case.
  • In her time at Roy's army, she hadn't been allowed to partake much in battle, mainly due to how limited her dragonstone was in usesnote . Thankfully, her excellent Resistance allows her to sponge magic attacks without wasting its uses, which only happens when she has to attack an enemy.
    • Nowadays, dragonstones aren't rare (though not exactly dirt cheap either), allowing her to be a bit more liberal with its use. Her fellow Manaketes (usually Tiki) always take time to make sure she has one in case some schmuck has the bright idea of attacking her.
  • Fears the Dovahkiin for…well, hunting dragons, and what would happen after that. Whenever she encounters one, she always tries to hide, either behind Lilina, Roy, or Tiki (as well as Marth after the elder Divine Dragon introduced her to him).
    • She also hates Miraak for the same reasons, with the added bonus of being a narcissistic cult leader also out to brainwash any dragon he could find.
    • That said, she's on better terms with the Dovahkiin's mentor Paarthurnax, as he's a dragon who turned against his species' nature to dominate and destroy. It helps that he's acquainted with Eliwood and Ninian (Roy's parents, maybe in Ninian's case), and is willing to help them out with many evil dragons in the Pantheon. Especially his brother, Alduin.

  • Conflicting Opinion: Doctor Doom
  • Koudelka was born in 1879 to a very poor Gypsy family in the remote Welsh village of Abergynolwyn, beside the Taliesin river. Her birth name is Zslato, which means "treasure". Her strong psychic abilities frightened her family and neighbours and things came to a head when she predicted her father's death down to the very minute, days before it happened. Her mother, fearful of her daughter's powers, tried to kill her, but was unsuccessful. After being brought before the Gypsy elders, Koudelka was banished and chased from the village. In 1888, at age nine, she was found in London by Mrs. Blavatsky, a renowned medium for the spirits. She raised Koudelka as her daughter, helping her hone her skills until she passed away. Afterwards, Koudelka set off travelling around Britain, supporting herself by finding lost articles for other people and serving as a medium for those who wished to communicate with the spirit world. In Autumn of 1898, Koudelka heard a desperate plea of help from a spirit asking her to travel to the Nemeton Monastery in Aberystwyth, Wales. After arriving at the monastery, Koudelka met and teamed up with Edward Plunkett and Father James O' Flaherty in order to investigate the events happening there. 15 years later, Koudelka teamed up with Yuri Hyuga and his group in order to prevent Albert Simon from summoning a being a known as "Meta-God" and cleansing the world.
  • She ascended into the pantheon after the gods heard about her show-stopping appearance in the adventure of her successor, Yuri Hyuga. She was quite surprised to hear that it is considered to be such a big deal.
  • Koudelka quickly befriended fellow Gypsy Esmeralda, who was happy to meet another Gypsy within the pantheon. The two bonded over their shared hardships and formed a mutual respect. However, Koudelka also became enemies with Judge Frollo, who was outraged about the ascension of another Gypsy and started threatening her the same way that he did Esmeralda. Koudelka managed to get him to keep his distance by threatening him with her magic powers. While this has successfully resulted in him generally avoiding her, the fact that she can use dark magic further convinced him that she was evil and has fueled his desire to destroy her.
  • She became good friends with Sophitia Alexandra and Terra Branford due to her strong bond with her son and her willingness to prioritise his safety over that of the world or herself. She sympathises with Sophitia for having been Forced into Evil in order to protect her daughter and generally agrees with Terra about the joys of love, as it helped to soften her outlook on life and resulted in the birth of her son, Halley.
  • Koudelka is also good friends with fellow spirit channeler Maya Fey, which came as a surprise to many as the two have very different personalities. However, Koudelka managed to bond with Maya over their shared desire to help people. Similarly, Koudelka befriended Anna Kyōyama due to having a similar past of being ostracized as a child because of her powers.
  • She is on friendly terms with Vent and Aile and sympathises with how they lost their parents at a young age. They bonded over their shared desire to help others despite their respective hardships.
  • Koudelka was initially quite alarmed to hear that there were two Amons in the pantheon, as she thought that one of them could be a powerful demon with the same name from her world who is one of the three Gods of Destruction. Although neither of them is the Amon from her world, she nonetheless became enemies with both of them. The leader of the Equalists opposes her due to the fact that she is a magic user while the fallen Xel'Naga dislikes her due to his view of humans as being insignificant.
  • She generally opposes evil Psychics and is frequently called upon for help whenever any are causing trouble. However, she also feels sorry for certain evil psychics, such as Lucy and Psycho, as their bad childhoods contributed to them becoming evil and make her wonder if she could have ended up like them if not for the kindness she had received from others.
  • She's rather unsure of what to think of Doctor Doom. On one hand, they're both Gypsies who have experienced hardships and are very skilled at magic. On the other hand, she disagrees with his dictatorial methods and his willingness to resort to extreme and immoral methods to achieve his goals. However, his Heel–Face Turn has resulted in their interactions becoming more amicable.

  • Pikachu, the Mouse Pokémon, easily the most recognizable Pokémon in existance and the Mascot of his franchise. This Pikachu ascended thanks to his master and best friend Ash Ketchum, who wanted Pikachu to have his own temple, even if he didn't have any problem sharing with Ash. Having reviewed the notability of his species, Pikachu was chosen as the symbol of all the Pokémon deities and is hold to the highest honor, even if he would rather not be put on a pedestal.
  • Is on good terms with Samus ever since their chance meeting during one of her trademark apocalypses.
    • In contrast, Ridley promised that he'll skewer Pikachu with his tail as payback for preventing him from killing Samus.
  • Between playing with his friends and shocking villains, he's sometimes seen carrying around — and eating from — a bottle of the House of Food's best ketchup. The House of Food doesn't mind a bottle going missing every now and then, as a single bottle is nothing compared to what some other deities consume every meal.
    • While he doesn't mind sharing said bottle if asked, he will retaliate if it's taken from him. Whether this is by himself or with the help of friends depends on the aggressor.
  • Once got into a fight with Blanka, and despite putting up a great fight, was sorely outclassed thanks to his small size.
  • Despite his incredible speed, he sadly suffers of a case of sensitive knees. VERY sensitive knees.
  • Once got unlucky with Ghetsis Harmonia, who tested mind control technology on him in a plot to eventually control legendary Pokémon within the Pantheon. Pikachu was able to break free thanks to the efforts of Ash, N, and surprisingly Team Rocket.
  • He and Ash ventured into the Friendship Asylum, but only Pikachu escaped. It turns out that the asylum corrupted Ash, with Pikachu escaping before he too was corrupted.
  • News has come to light of Pikachu taking on an exercise regiment for the sake of facing a different competition. Even more bizarrely, Heihachi is actually interested in seeing how this will turn out.
  • Alongside Ash, Team Rocket, Misty and Brock, Pikachu is expressly forbidden from entering Cyberspace, due in no small part to his role in a certain incident.
  • Has been seen a few times in the Gaming Styles subhouse, acting as an agent for Roahm Mythril.

  • What seemed to be at first just a quirky underling of Kano, Tremor made a huge impression after he fought Jax Briggs given his earth control powers. Eventually he lost the fight and died, but he wasn't forgotten and in the new timeline, the story of Tremor took a radical turn. After Kano sent him to retrieve an item in the Dream Realm, Tremor's powers being exposed to that realm increased their strength, enough that it is said his power rivals those of Raiden and Fujin, two demigods. After that, Tremor appeared among the pantheon ranks, triumphally claiming the title of Playable Promotion.
  • For a Black Dragon Clan member, he is actually not that bad even being very affable towards his foes and even willing to let some retreat. That doesn't mean he doesn't want to crush the ascended Special Forces members Sonya Blade and Jax Briggs. He especially wants some payback with Jax given his death in the original timeline and this time he is going all out.
    • Unexpectedly, he seems to unironically enjoy Johnny Cage's movies enough to respect the man himself in combat. Cage does consider him a dangerous threat but appreaciates his support.
  • His relationship with Kano has been strained given his rather...shady ways he goes around. They seem to tolerate the other enough to at least work together, but he has quit being a Black Dragon (at least in the pantheon) and has stated that he plans to off Kano before he departs.
  • His impressive earthbending skills haven't gone unnoticed and he sometimes can be found in the House of Earth & Rock honing his skills. He considers Toph Beifong a Worthy Opponent and their bouts have ended in stalemates multiple times, most impressive is that they also have control over metal (As demonstrated by Tremor's Metallic variation and Toph's metalbending). He respects Geb for being an ancient deity of earth elementals and hopes to one day match his strength.
    • He also has Crystalline variation where he can adopt moves based on crystals. This drew the attention of Diancie who was perplexed by their similar appearances. Tremor and Diancie actually became good friends, to everyones surprises and he seems to be super protective of the Pokemon, to the point that if Diancie gets in serious trouble, he won't hesitate to come to her aid.
  • Sometimes can also be seen in the hottest places of Nature, probably assuming his Aftershock form to practice. There he also found Heathran and confronted the creature to see if it had some combat in it. He wasn't dissapointed and ended up befriending the creature, strangely enough.
    • He also heard of Fleet Admiral Sakazuki, a man with a fearsome reputation and even more fearsome powers. Tremor also challenged him to a fight to see if he the rumors were true and ultimately ended on a stalemate. Though their conflict didn't end there, as Akainu clearly wants to terminate Tremor for his connection with the Black Dragon clan and won't rest until he finishes him off.
  • While he might be better and more morally upstanding than his partner Kano, Tremor at the end of the day is still a criminal and mercenary and is judged as such. He has some received some job offers from the likes of Shadaloo, HYDRA and the Regime but he usually prefers to take smaller jobs, even if those don't bother him that much.
  • Once got to work with Deadpool and surprisingly, Tremor was able to tolerate his constant talking without too much trouble. Well, until he started to bother him about his old look and Tremor decide to crush the merc with the mouth with his Stone Tomb. Of course, that didn't kill him but it kept him quite for a few minutes.
  • Used to be confused for Scorpion in the past. A lot. So it's understandable why the two are rivals, besides their contrasting elements. The next person who will mention that he resembles Scorpion will get their bones crushed though.
  • Has some degree of respect for Leon, who also like him was Saved by the Fans. Initially though Leon didn't have a high opinion of Tremor considering his ties with Kano but since Tremor showed to be quite the honorable fighter he ended up also respecting him in return.
  • He seems to be closely connected to the House of Dreams, possibly since his powers increased after being exposed to the Dream Realm for so long. But the reason he visits the house is entirely unknown.
  • Can also be found in Effects of Popularity.

from left: Gilius Thunderhead, Ax Battler and Tyris Flare
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: The Golden Axe
  • Theme Song: The Golden Axe Theme
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolios:
  • Domains: Vengeance, Weapons, Fantasy
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Melkor, Gregor Clegane, Cervantes de Leon, Roose Bolton, Ramsay Bolton, Euron Greyjoy
  • Conflicing Opinion: Kratos
  • In General:
    • Gilius Thunderhead was already plotting to bring his two comrades-in-arms, Tyris Flare and Ax Battler into the Pantheon. Getting Tyris Flare in was easy enough, as she was the High Priestess to Red Sonja, the goddess herself plotting to bring Tyris into the Pantheon proper. When Conan the Barbarian heard of this plan, he offered his aid in allowing his follower, Ax Battler to join his friends. Conan, Sonja and Gilius worked together and their plotting finally bore fruit. The Ax Battler and Tyris has reunited with Gilius in the Pantheon.
    • Of course, this meant that Gilius had to relinquish his previous title of God of Dwarves. Now Gilius has his hands full in deciding who gets to be his successor for the position. What better way than to choose than a good-old-fashioned free-for all?
    • Ax Battler thanked both Conan and Gilius for getting him into the Pantheon. Of which the dwarf replied that it was a joint effort between the two men and Red Sonja. Tyris, for her part, is humbled that Sonja had given her such an opportunity.
    • If you like where your head and appendages are at on your body, do not mention the Beat Rider Incident to the trio, as it is a Mark of Shame for the trio, especially for Tyris, as she was the one spearheading that event. If you're lucky (or if they're feeling merciful), they'll simply hack you to death.
    • While the trio are in agreement that most of the Greek Pantheon were a bunch of jerkasses, even they were apalled at Kratos' bloody rampage through Greece and Olympus. But as they see him with his son, teaching him not to be the man that he was, but better, makes the trio pause. That, and Gilius, famous for wielding an axe into battle, fawns over the Leviathan Axe, originally belonging to Kratos' wife, now his main weapon.
  • Ax Battler Only:
    • Turns out that he has gained a sympathetic ear from the deified mothers of the Pantheon, as he joined forces with Tyris and Gilius to avenge his mother and his people following Death Adder sacking his home village.
    • There has been some debate as to what Ax Battler's name is. Some say that his name is Tarik, and that Ax Battler is just a title, while others say that Ax Battler is his real name. In a dose of irony his Weapon of Choice is a broadsword, rather than an axe.
    • Has gained sympathy from the deified parents in the Pantheon - especially mothers - after telling his backstory. He lived with his mother until Death Adder sacked his village, his mother being among the many casualties, leading to his war against Death Adder and his forces.
    • Also has his share of females chasing after him as well. That comes with being a former follower of Conan the Barbarian. Among his female admirerers are Isabela of Rivain and Queen Ashe Dalmasca.
  • Tyris Flare Only:
    • Hearing of Tyris' exploits has made Visenya Targaryen's warrior blood boil. Visenya knows of Tyris' battle prowess from her days as Red Sonja's High Priestess. Now, Visenya wants nothing more than to cross swords with Tyris herself.
    • Her time as Red Sonja's High Priestess has rubbed off on her. Not only did her swordplay improved, but she also developed a severe hatred for rapists. While Sonja would love nothing more than to geld The Mountain That Rides, Tyris loathes the Boltons, especially Ramsay. She also finds out that Euron Greyjoy has taken a shine to her, and wants to make her his latest salt wife. That and he threatenes Gilius.
    Euron: You will be mine, Tyris. I will pay the iron price.
    Tyris: Then you will accept my own iron price when I shove my sword down your throat.
    • As mentioned earlier, mentioning the Beast Rider fiasco pisses her off somethibg serious. If you want to remain in one piece, don't mention that to her.
    • As her nickname is 'The Amazon,' she certainly fights like one, hence the attention from Wonder Woman herself. Tyris was also seen in the company of Triss Merigold, as she was learning how to strengthen her fire magic.
  • Gilius Only:
    • One of the more reknown Dwarves in the verse, Gilius' services in the name of justice is very lengthy. He stopped the terrors of Death Adder, Death Bringer, Dark Guld, and later saved a group of heroes from Damned Hellstrike and returning one last time to face the return of Death Adder. And he was never alone, but he always represented the Dwarf race best: Stout and mighty in spite of his short size.
    • This is finally capitalized when he seemingly perished delivering the great final strike against Death Adder, sacrificing his life so others may live. The greatness of his sacrifice made the Pantheon re-evaluate his worth to enter the Pantheon... and after seeing Gilius even adapt to modern times by playing tennis and going karting even beyond his death, they decided that he deserves a place in the Pantheon and ascended him as the Dwarf God.
    • Contrary to the whole Elves vs. Dwarves thing, Gilius actually have no say about those, as he has never encountered them in life, and in fact would get along well with them if necessary.
    • He actually knows some magic, but much like other Dwarves, Gilius' more known for his strength, his magic is kind of lacking and he admitted his friend Tyris Flare was much more adept in that. Then again, that was enough to save at least two of the four adventurers from Damned Hellstrike.
    • He used to mine, like all dwarves as well, before all those shits with Death Adder. This is why sometimes he spends his time saving those Fortress Dwarves when they did something incredibly stupid it's life-threatening. Of course he can't be everywhere at times, so there were times he ended up unable to save them from the inevitable.
    • As one of the earlier Sega deities, he got along well with deities like Sonic The Hedgehog and Segata Sanshiro. He also seemed to note about the trio of Axel, Adam and Blaze to be fellow Beat 'em Up deities (well, Hack N Slash seems to be more of Gilius' expertise) and has noted that maybe Blaze kind of reminded him of what happened if Tyris would reincarnate in modern times.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mass-Effect-3-Ashley-Williams_2442.jpg
Ashley
  • Lesser God (Kaidan), Demigod (Ashley)
  • Symbol: A blue Alliance armor.
  • Alliance: Both are Lawful Good but can be Neutral Good if they have to
  • Porfolio: Both: Walking Spoiler, cannot be in the same party simultaneously, being The Lancer to Shepard, being Killed Off for Real (depends on Shepard's choice), military background
  • Domains: Both: Gaming, Combat, Life and Death, Narrative, War
    • Kaidan: Personal Appearance, Mentalism, Love
    • Ashley: Anti-Hero, Family, Personality, Quirk
  • High Priests: Bethany and Carver Hawke
  • Followers: Erana and Katrina, Rosary Esmeralda and Roswell Branthèse, Valeria and Kasumi, Daena and Escad, Samson and Arran
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Both: The Illusive Man, Harbinger and the entire Collectors / Reapers army, Saren Arterius, David Xanatos
  • Opposes: Both: Yubel
  • Conflicting Opinions:
  • The two are among one of the most mysterious deities in the pantheon. Both of them claimed to be Shepard's closest companions, being the only ones along with Joker that don't require a Loyalty Mission to stay with him / her, yet every time someone saw them as a representative agent for Shepard, they became either of one these two different person whenever people blink: sometimes a male biotic named Kaidan while sometimes a female soldier called Ashley. This confused and scared the hell out of everyone in the Pantheon, including the villains. To make matter worse, both of them take charge of their temple at a schedule of different days in the week or when the other is unavailable and keep having crisis over the other not survived.
    • The only ones that know about the truth about this phenomenal are the gods from the Mass Effect universe, Cosmos, Abed Nadir, Aerith Gainsborough, Sherlock Holmes, Yubel and David Xanatos. Much effort was made from a lot of different deities to hire The Laughing Man to hack into the database of a mysterious entity from the Mass Effect Universe called the Shadow Broker to figure out what the heck is going on, only to find a file that titled "Virmire".
    • It should be noted that their presence did not have a positive effect on fellow Mass Effect gods from the Normandy, especially Shepard, as it's a constant reminder of their failures to ensure the survival of one of them.
    • It was reviewed that their ascension was a plan by David Xanatos (who stumbles across them in an effort to ascend his wife) as a form of gambit: If they are ascended, he will have a chance to cripple Commander Shepard psychologically as well as a leverage / favor against Shepard. If not, their high priest Bethany & Carver Hawke will ascend thus crippling Hawke, another powerful member, instead. While Ashley & Kaidan themselves hate David's guts for his manipulation of them, Shepard him / herself has mixed feeling as at least David allow him / her to see both of them again, in a matter of speaking.
  • Both of them and Shepard have to point out that Kaidan did not spent all of his time complaining about his implant and Ashley can work with her alien teammates just fine while eventually outgrew her racism toward the other species.
  • Was understandably mistaken as a hermaphrodite deity by Yubel, who pays their temple a visit along with Juudai. Needless to say, the Duel Monster was disappointed to find out that they were two deities but was amused when Yubel notices how similar the relationship between Kaidan and Male!Shepard is to Juudai and Johan before the Virmire incident. Ashley and Kaidan were just disturbed by how similar Yubel is to the Reapers and refused any more contact with the Duel Monster.
  • Do NOT mistake Ashley for Ashley J. Williams unless you want a shotgun in the face as she thinks he is too uncontrollable for her taste. She tries to avoid this as much as possible by introduce herself as Ashley Madeline Williams or Lt. Williams. Amusingly, a lot of gods realize they are Not So Different from each other, including but not limit to calling their guns a "boomstick". She got along better with the more pragmatic heroes, especially Wonder Woman (for their willingness to do the dirty works) and Emiya.
  • Ashley dislikes the Ashleys group as it reminds too much of the teasing she used to endure under her fellow Jerkass Alliance soldiers. Although their Pet the Dog moments have somewhat soften her opinion on them.
  • In her off days, Ashley can be seen in the House of Quirk and Theater to share her love for poetry with the gods reside there.
  • In his off days, Kaidan can be seen wondering around asking anime gods he came across if they are biotics, probably due to the eyes and hair. This is followed by a secret order from Shepard to not offer any explanation for him as s/he is too amused by this. Fortunately, his personality caused him to made a lot of friends in the hero side (and even a few bad or morally-ambiguous ones). He is especially sympathetic with Ranma Saotome for their shared experience with Training from Hell and advises Ranma to seek a good therapist for the latter's crippling fear of cats.
  • Kaidan has complicated feelings on Charles Xavier and Magneto as their philosophy reminds him of his world's stance on human biotic. While admiring Xavier for his stand on the mutant's side and disgusted with Magneto's more extreme actions, he dislikes Xavier's tendency to keep secrets from his fellow X-men and admits the Crapsack World nature of the Marvel Universe tends to justify a lot of Magneto's hatred for them.
  • Kaidan's sexuality is one of the most extremely debated topic in the pantheon, especially in the House of Love and Narrative. Some (most of the House of Love) argue that he is bisexual, pointing out that he only has romantic interest in two people at most (his friend Rahna and Shepard), one of whom is potentially male. Some (most deities from the House of Narrative) think he just attracted to Shepard, points out that it took much longer for Male!Shepard to start a romance with him than a Fem!Shepard and only after buying a whiskey bottle. Kaidan is just amused (and somewhat appalled / embarrassed) by this and states that what he does in the bedroom is his business.
    • Desire of The Endless tried to settle this argument through seducing Kaidan by shape shifting into the most attractive male form he desired. However, Desire's effort was found out by The Shadow Broker, who happens to be his good friend Liara and was stopped by the combined effort of the entire Normandy crew as they heard about Desire's Lack of Empathy and Manipulative Bastard personality.

    Rick, Kine, & Coo 
Rick, Kine, & Coo, Triumvirate of Assist Characters (Collectively: Animal Friends)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ksa_rickkinecoo.png
Left to Right: Kine, Rick, & Coo
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: A brown sack
  • Theme Music: Kirby's Dream Land 2 Title Screen
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Ridiculously Cute Critters, Land, Sea, Sky, Powerup Mount
  • Domains: Animals, Assistance, Abilities
  • Heralds: Nago, ChuChu, & Pitch
  • Allies: Kirby, Gooey, Yoshi, Chocobos
  • Enemies: Zero (Kirby), Void Termina
  • Rick, Kine, and Coo are among Kirby's various allies and some of his earliest at that. They're found inside brown sacks and help Kirby via modifying whatever the puffball has at the moment once freed. Rick's abilities are suitable for land, Kine is specialized for underwater, and Coo's moves are meant for the air.
  • Three brown sacks were found one day at the House of Beast. No one was entirely sure what was in these sacks or if it could cause some potential problems. Kirby, who happened to be at the house at the time, recognized the sacks and went up to them. Out of the sacks were a hamster, a fish, and a bird, all of whom Kirby recognized as friends. Ultimately, the three were considered to not be much trouble and after additional matters were cleared with the Court of the Gods, Kirby's animal friends were allowed to stay around.
  • Their temple is a straightforward grassland setting, with accomodations specifically for each member. Since Kine simply flops on land, there is a lake for him to swim in. As for Coo, there is a high-enough tree for him to rest in, plus some other trees to fly towards. Rick has a few sections within his and his friends' temple for him to climb around.
  • All three get along great with Yoshi, who served a similar role via helping Mario after being freed from an egg. Yoshi was able to go on his own adventures independent of Mario and while the Animal Trio had far less solo adventuring than that of Yoshi's, they all still hang out and go around different places whenever possible.
    • Other animal companions that the trio became friends with are the Chocobos thanks to the general versatility that the birds had to offer to those that have them. Coo in particular is fond of the Chocobos and is seen with them by himself a bit more often.
  • While roaming around the Pantheon, Hammond managed to to come across Rick and was surprised to see not just another hamster, but one that's just a bit larger than him. Just out of curiosity, Hammond wanted to see if he could go on a ride with Rick and to his surprise, Rick was willing to go around with it. Not only that, but at a few points during their first meeting, Rick turned himself into a rolling stone ball. Going off what Wrecking Ball has translated, Hammond likes Rick quite a bit even if their meetings aren't going to happen often due to Hammond traveling frequently.
    • A few jokes have been going around by some claiming that they're both Australian, mainly since Rick somehow has an Australian accent on the rare chance that he talks and that Hammond crash-landed into Australia from the Moon. Both don't mind the jokes that much, even if they obviously don't originate from Australia (and that Rick had never even heard of that place to begin with).
  • Being a fish, Kine is unable to do almost anything on land except flop around. Kine found kinship with Magikarp, another fish that ends up land-bound for different reasons and also unable to do anything except splash around to no effect. That said, Kine's splashing does a bit of damage to some minor adversaries, but not enough to seriously stop them.
  • During an underwater swim, Kine came across Ecco the Dolphin and was surprised at what Ecco is capable of. The most the Kine could do underwater by himself is have a bit of ice powers, but ends up running the risk of freezing himself. Ecco considers Kine a good friend to swim with.
  • Outside of Kirby and his other animal buddies, Coo doesn't really have an additional friend to go with. Out of curiosity, he decided to look around and see if there were other owls to meet with. He's mostly fine with Kaepora Gaebora even if Coo isn't really the type of deity to have long conversations with. Coo was far less happy to hear about an actively threatening owl in The Grand Duke of Owls and made it a point to not go near him at all.
    • Decidueye was an owl that surprised Coo significantly thanks to its abilities. While Coo is decent enough to fend off some foes, Decidueye's skillset is well-ahead of Coo's especially when it comes to long-range capabilities. Despite that gap, the two get along well enough for them to hang around whenever Coo isn't with Rick or Kine.
  • There have been a few instances of Rick sleeping by himself. Some such as Rena Ryuugu and Schezo Wegey find a sleeping hamster cute to try and take him with them. While they are somewhat successful in taking him, they can't actually keep the hamster with them since Rick simply just walks back to where his friends upon waking up are whenever Schezo or Rena aren't looking.
  • Dark Matter was the main threat that the Animal Friends fought against with Kirby's help. While they know about the enemy known as Zero, the trio was shocked to learn about Zero Two as they weren't around when Kirby fought it. They consider this Zero Two to be just as bad, if not worse than regular Zero.
  • Rick, Kine, and Coo aren't the only animal companions that Kirby utilized on his adventures. There were a couple additional ones through Nago, ChuChu, and Pitch, who are something of counterparts to Rick, Kine, and Coo respectively as far as the land, sea, sky dynamic is concerned. While Nago, ChuChu, and Pitch sometimes help Kirby in the Pantheon, it's mainly Rick, Kine, and Coo who have had more time to help out Kirby.

Tanya and her ilks in three different wars.
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Allies Faction symbol and two pistols
  • Theme Song: Take 'Em Out, Tanya!
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Action Girl, One-Woman Army, Legacy Character, twin pistols, swimming any body of water, famous laughter, the tough girl to Eva's smart girl, armored bra, wears a black dress at the end of wars
  • Domains: Commando, Hero Unit
  • Allies: Albert Einstein, Stephen Colbert, Sonya Blade, Tresdin, Ecco the Dolphin
  • Rivals: Captain America, Kenshiro
  • Enemies: Kane, Yuri, Nikita Dragovich, Scanty and Kneesocks, Takeo Masaki, Lust, Saber Alter, Bashmaster, all the Japanese Ship girls
  • Distrust: Tashkent, Heavy Weapons Guy, good Russian and ursine deities
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Nikolai Belinski
  • Of all of the Hero Units, Tanya is the most notable where she is a character while others are either generic representations or are already characters that are represented by some other title in the Pantheon. With the Court of the God's decision, they allowed Tanya to represent the commandos and heroes.
  • A One-Woman Army, she is equipped with twin pistols in which she could put down an entire division of infantries, holds load of C4 which she uses on ships and buildings (and later in other wars, ground vehicles) to blow them up. In the War of the Three Powers, she wears the Time Belt, a prototype device created by Futuretech Corporation, which allows her to return back 10 seconds ago.
    • Those who uses walker are very afraid of her C4s, as the explosive could destroy the legs and make them useless. Though she doesn't seem to understand the idea since she will place C4 on vehicles anyways, she started liking the idea of blowing up their legs.
    • She doesn't like the ship girls and they don't like her too. Not only because she blows up ships with her C4 like the four Soviet Dreadnoughts in New York, but also because of their affiliation with Imperial Japan is reminiscent to the Empire of the Rising Sun.
  • It is rumored that her role in World War II is what inspired GDI to initiate their own commando program to create their own One-Man Army.
  • Due to different time periods (even different timelines), there was only one iteration of Tanya. However, the Pantheon managed to get a glipse of what she looked like in the other timelines. Interestingly, they note that she was mostly brown-haired, but is blonde in the latest war.
    • Some speculates that Tanya may be a codename for a female operative, hence why she always look different for each war between the Allied Nations and the Soviet Union.
  • She doesn't get along with higher authority figures as she is very vocal and shows very little respect toward them. Scanty and Kneesocks were offended for her lack of attitude to obey the RURUS!!! Regardless, despite her lack of obedience, she is still the best they got, so they allow her to do whatever is necessary.
  • Tanya is fiercely competitive of her status as the best soldier in the world, and she would butt heads with other acclaimed soldiers when she ends up having to work with them.
  • She hates commies. As one of the Allies' best soldiers, she knew of the Soviet's atrocities and cannot stand the deities that associate with the Party. Though not all Soviet or Russian are evil or ruthless, they are not very trusting to them.
    • The one things that the Soviet ruin for her is bears. Armored, loud, man-eating bears, that would maul her if given a chance. A feat that Stephen Colbert found for someone who has the same mindset. And also found that the Legion Commander has a dislike for bears as well.
  • Do not confuse her with Tanya from the realm of Edenia. She finds her despicable for betraying her own realm and allies, something that a commie would do.
  • She is usually seen wearing a small black dress when the war is at its end, something that she likes to show off to the Commander. She finds herself to be the only decent one to wear it unironically.

    Voldo 
Voldo, God of Wacky Fighters (The Hell Guardian, He Who Is Bound By Blind Allegiance)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/voldo_2.png
  • Lesser God

  • Respected by: Corset
  • Observed by: Sigmund Freud
  • Annoys: Spawn, Heihachi Mishima
  • There were quite a lot of thefts in the Treasury Room in the Pantheon. All of them have been minor so far, but it would only be a time before the thief gets away with something more important. Sam Vimes hired the best detectives in the Pantheon to track down the criminal. It was Holmes who managed to track him down to the House of Combat. It was there that a slippery man in a skimpy outfit. He may not have looked like much, but he managed to overpower Holmes and Watson and made his escape. Unluckily for him, there were plenty of more powerful foes that managed to take him down. It was Taki who identified who he was: Voldo. Turns out he had made his home in this very area. The confiscated items were placed back in their place, but this man's adventures in the Pantheon has only begun...
  • Faust appears to be the only god that can fully understand his antics. It might be because Faust fights just as crazy as Voldo, but most gods won't delve into it for long, lest their brains explode in confusion.
  • His temple is the exact replica of the Money Pit, complete with the tomb of his deceased master Vercci. Not even his followers are allowed near the tomb for fear of getting them stolen.
  • One of his most prominent traits is his ability to fight just as effectively on his back. That has made him rivals with Xiaoyu. Whether one is better than the other in that regard is up to debate.
  • None of the deities from his world were that excited with his ascension. Voldo himself doesn't bother with any of them as long as they don't try and steal anything from his vault. And yet he always seems to get involved in their stories; he's one of the few Soul deities to have been involved in every game. There are exceptions; he despises the pirate Cervantes, believing he caused the death of his master. He has also long since stopped attempting to add Soul Edge to his collection, realising the evil nature of the weapon. This made him enemies with Nightmare.
  • One would think that with his bondage outfit he would be often seen in the House of Lust, but that's not the case. It's just that he prefers to wear as little clothing as possible. It doesn't help that the man doesn't appear to have much of a sex drive. That hasn't stopped Slaanesh from trying to test the waters. Voldo merely avoids her the best he can.
  • Upon his ascension, he was immediately challenged by Dan Hibiki, furious that such a clown fighter could have a higher rank than him. Voldo proved that his ranking was no joke, defeating Dan in a minute flat. His fellow members of the House of Gaming noted that Voldo's followers are not intended to be joke characters. They may look silly, but they can hold their own as well as the rest of them. That hasn't stopped Dan from training to beat Voldo some day.
    • Not even Bambi Hughes is willing to take the risk with that man. He doesn't feel he would get the satisfaction with Voldo.
    • Frollo denounced his method of clothing, claiming it brings about sinful lust in the eyes of girls and boys. Not that he's wrong, but it's clear that it's not Voldo's intention to do so. After backlash from various defenders, Frollo back down from his statement.
    • Freud hopes to find out why Voldo acts the way he does. It has proven to be one of his toughest studies yet.
  • At least Corset respects the man for having the guts for wearing such an outrageous outfit, even going so far as to saying it's a good look for him. Too bad he feels Voldo to be a too chaotic for his taste.
  • Genos became interested in Voldo's complete devotion towards his master, even after death. Genos himself has a similar bond with Saitama and hopes to help him out the same. The android still thinks that it doesn't justify his stealing tendencies.
  • On top of his unorthodox fighting style, it was soon discovered that he is completely blind as well. Daredevil volunteered to fight him to see how he manages to maneuver. After a brief encounter, the Man Without Fear concluded that his other senses help guide his movements, much like himself.
  • Carmen quickly learned that it's impossible to effectively work with Voldo in performing heists. Voldo is too distracted with various other items to make him steal any particular item. The two now see themselves as rivals in the trade.
  • Not that it interested Voldo, but there were a few gods that recognized him before his ascension
    • Link and Ezio have both issued a restraining order, banning Voldo from their temples when he was caught trying to steal their equipment. Both were involved in separate adventures and viewed Voldo as the least pleasing person they've met.
  • Neither Spawn nor Heihachi have any beef in Voldo... as long as he doesn't get in their way.

    Jagen 
Jagen, God of Crutch Characters (Jeigan, Bones of Iron, Veteran Knight)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jagen.png
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The Spikes on his Purple Armor and a Silver Lance
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Being Powerful Early, Weak Late, Cool Old Guy, Old Retainer, Wearing armor even as a tactician
  • Domains: Protection, Strategy, Wisdom
  • Followers: Arran, Eyvel, Dagdar, Marcus, Gunther, Tellah
  • Allies: Marth, Caeda, Robin, Chrom, Lucina, Iroh
  • Enemies: Megatron, Grima, Crocodile
  • Ascended due to being the former Trope Namer for Crutch Character as well as being the namesake for an entire archetype of units in the Fire Emblem series.
  • Jagen was more important in the early days of the Pantheon when things still needed to be set up, and the more powerful gods hadn't ascended, or were still in training. Nowadays, he's mostly retired, but he still steps up when he's needed.
  • Helps train some of the younger heroes.
  • Don't let the memes fool you: Jagen is a fully-promoted unit and has a stat-line to be respected despite his old age, but he doesn't improve too much from the experience. Instead, he prefers to let the younger people improve. He is still there to help if things get out of hand.
  • Marth was pleased about the ascension of his guardian and adviser, and Jagen was, as could be expected, overjoyed to once again aid his Lord.
  • Gets along with Robin as fellow tacticians because Robin reminds Jagen of Kris, a soldier who once fought with him and Marth. Conversely, Jagen reminds Robin and Chrom of the latter's own retainer, Frederick.
    • Has, in recent times, also taken to joining in combat drills with the forces Robin directs. Jagen has observed these training drills and rather liked what he saw, opting to join in to develop himself even further then was possible in his day. After all, you can very much teach an old knight new tricks~!
  • Upon meeting Chrom and Lucina, Jagen was impressed by the action of the descendants of his prince.
  • Gets along well with Iroh as both have served similar roles as loyal retainers and mentors for Marth and Zuko, respectively.
    • Jagen is also enemies with Grima, as the dragon resembles Marth's foe Medeus, a foe whose evil Jagen is well-acquainted with.
  • Does not like Megatron. Not only do they sound similar, Jagen is not fond of Megatron's megalomania.
  • For the sake of all that is holy, don't insult Marth right in his face. Jagen may be an old man, but his stat-line is no joke, and he'll bravely stand up for Marth's honor, even if it might force him to strike and potentially rob one of his Lord's younger, less-developed allies of experience.

    Johnston 
Johnston, Patron Saint of Overrated Legendary Characters (DD-557, Radio Call Sign "NIKZ", Callsign "Brasslock", Amerikaze)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/johnston_kai_full.png
Johnston Kai
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: A model of the USS Johnston
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: A character with a legendary reputation who turns out to be mediocre in actual combat, Born Lucky, Named After Somebody Famous, who in this case is a man, Having been foreshadowed months prior with equipment that she uses, Phenotype Stereotype, Having several smaller historical details on her costume
  • Domains: Legendary Characters, United States, Destroyers
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Opposes: Cole Phelps, Takeo Masaki
  • Pities: Suzu Hojou
  • Similar characters: Cecilia
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Yamato, Shimakaze
  • Johnston, who is the personification of the Fletcher-class destroyer of the same name, is, based on her historical counterpart's own service record, a pretty legendary character. Like Yuudachi's historical counterpart, she is best known for performing well in surface combat before being sunk by enemy action. Unlike Yuudachi, however, her surface combat ability leaves much to be desired, as, despite her reputation, she is woefully average in it. So average, her firepower is actually similar to that of fellow American ship Samuel B. Roberts, whose historical counterpart was a destroyer escort that had half the firepower and displacement.
    • Despite this huge disappointment, however, her Anti-Air and anti-submarine warfare skills are still considered to be one of the best among the destroyers. If anything, it can be considered as a Necessary Drawback, allowing her to do more without being utterly broken.
  • Of special note is her costume, which has some pretty nice attention to detail to it. These include: a Medal of Honor on her left arm (which references her late captain earning the medal posthumously for his actions in combat), her ribbons spelling out her historical radio callsign (which in this case is NIKZ, or November India Kilo, and Zulu), and a bronze star and silver star on her collar (which are based on the 6 Battle stars the historical ship received).
  • Like fellow American ship girl Iowa, Johnston's ascension was arranged as a joint operation by both STEC's personnel and The Admiral, as a sign of goodwill. In addition, the members of Black Cat Mantaray 5-4 and many of the WWII-era US Marines had vouched for her.
  • Unlike every other KC-verse destroyer currently in the Pantheon, Johnston is, notably, the only American amongst them. This results in a huge contrast in weapons, equipment, and even looks.
  • Upon her ascension, she immediately begins working alongside her fellow shipgirls in fighting against the Abyssal Fleet. Despite her drawbacks, she still manages to hold her own against both the regular units and the far more powerful bosses. When not fighting the Abyssal Fleet, she is often seen in the company of Iowa.
    • In addition, she's also seen hanging around with the crew of Black Cat Mantaray 5-4, who have a history of working alongside Fletcher-class destroyers during the Battle of Okinawa. Often, Johnston can be seen accompanying them in rescuing of deities stranded at sea, especially if they've been attacked by the Abyssal Fleet beforehand.
      • During on run-in with the Abyssal Fleet, Johnston saves the Black Cats from being shredded again by Air Defense Princess' Anti-Air fire and manages to drive the Humanoid Abomination off. In another skirmish, the Black Cats end up returning the favor with a Gunship Rescue during an encounter with the PT Imp Group, all the while Booth is telling Petty Officer Locke to "Take out those fuckin' PT boats!"
  • Isn't too fond of working alongside IJN ship girls Yamato and Shimakaze, due to their historical counterparts' role in her own's demise.
  • While they are related historically, with both of them being personified Fletcher-class destroyers, O'Bannon is rather disappointed that the Johnston that has been ascended is not from the same universe as her own. Nonetheless, they both get along really well, with Johnston's anti-aircraft and anti-submarine skills complementing O'Bannon's own.
  • Is among the few ship girls to get along really well with President Franklin D. Roosevelt. It helps that the American President is hugely fond of the US Navy (having served as Assistant Secretary of the Navy during World War I).
    • John F. Kennedy also comes to respect her, due to both being veterans of the Pacific Theater. They even show each other the awards they had earned for their service.
  • Sgt. Thomas Conlin is rather jealous of her Medal of Honor. For bonus irony, Conlin's own series is named after it, despite the Marine Sergeant himself never earning one. Nonetheless, he and the rest of his squad appreciate having her around, especially when they're in need of offshore fire support.
  • Absolutely loathes Commander Masataka Shima and his allies in the Imperial Japanese Army, the Banzai Chargers, due to their attempted assassination of The Admiral. It's because of this that she also aids Pvt. Miller, Sgt. Roebuck, and Pvt. Polonsky in hunting the warmongering Japanese down.
  • Is rather disgusted by Cole Phelps' past as a Marine, due to a questionable act he ordered his squad to do, not to mention having gotten many of them killed due to his mediocre leadership. This is especially true when she finds out that he had earned the Silver Star just because he was the Sole Survivor of a disastrous battle.
  • Pities Suzu Hojou's traumatic experiences During the War, much like many of the Marines and Navy sailors who had met her prior. It also helps that unlike Shima, she's a noncombatant who had no clue of what her country's military was doing.
  • Is among the Allied ship girls being targeted by General Heinz Bohm and his Ms 300 "Razor" missiles. Like with Warspite and Iowa, the German General intends to film her demise as part of a Propaganda Piece that he intends to show to the rest of the Pantheon as warning.
  • Makes quite a few appearances or mentions on shows from The History Channel, at least before Network Decay set in.
    • Her historical counterpart has had a major appearance in the Season 1 episode of Dogfights "Death of the Japanese Navy", with two of her historical counterpart's former crew being interviewed. Here, she's depicted performing a Heroic Sacrifice in a David vs. Goliath match against Yamato's historical counterpart and the fleet accompanying her, saving several of her fellow ships in the process at the cost of being surrounded, finished off, and sunk. In fact, Yamato was among those to score a hit on her, though not with her primary armament.
    • The ship makes another prominent mention and appearance in the episode "Fletcher-class destroyer", of Modern Marvels. Here, she's among the Fletcher-class destroyers mentioned in detail by the narrator, alongside the USS O'Bannon. And again, a former crew member of her's is interviewed.
  • Outside of the Abyssal Fleet and Imperial Japanese holdouts, two other, non-aligned, threats become Johnston's concern. They are the Plesioth and the Lagiacrus. Both sea monsters have a known reputation of deliberately sinking small ships in their wake. To no surprise, Johnston informs the Black Cats about them as well, in order for them to avoid becoming casualties to these monsters as well. Thanks to Johnston's onboard anti-sub weapons and excellent ASW skills, she can more than deter both monsters in the event that they are encountered.
