Pantheon / Game Design

Go To

The layout for this house is almost always changing every day, and it's been stated that no one should expect the same design twice here.

The one constant here is that there is a debate hall that's attended by aspiring game designers and talks are held to determine what goes in a game. Members are given their own interfaces that determine how well they are doing there and are used to vote on what they think of others' ideas (including, but not limited to, how characters are implemented, A.I. integration, where save points should go, and RNG-based factors).

As for why the layout here changes consistently? That's because the interfaces here also double as a level editor and members are given a chance to change the layout here using said interfaces if they do well here. However, regularly changing the area into something resembling Kaizo Mario World Platform Hell is not recommended, although not totally discouraged.

With the advent of Super Mario Maker, its now the site of where the members of the Pantheon try their hand of creating new levels for Mario to challenge traversing.trivia

Greater Gods

    Fi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hwfismall.png
Fi, Goddess of Precise Calculations and Insistent Assistance (Mistress Fi, the Goddess Sword, the Master Sword)

    The Keeper 
The Keeper, God of Malevolent Dungeons
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Dungeon Heart
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Card-Carrying Villain, Taking Control Of His Minions, Villain Protagonist, Losing Spells And Rooms During Departure From Lands, Variety Of Monsters For Minions, Converting Heroes To His Service Via Painful Torture, Taking Every Chance To Be Evil And Cruel
  • Domains: Underworld, Evil, Gold, Magic
  • Followers: His minions and some lesser keepers, Maximilian, Alexis and Shen Yu
  • Allies: The Overlord, Black Mage, Ali Al-Saachez, The Reaper
  • Enemies: A lot of good-aligned gods, but especially Nanoha Takamachi. For gods not aligned with good, Kecleon Brothers
  • Worthy Opponent: Link
  • Frequent Employee: Eario
  • After invading and ruining an once peaceful, beautiful and happy country, and even defeating (and humiliating) The Avatar, The Keeper was allowed to ascend to godhood. However, his vile actions (plus the fact that he succeeded) drew him A LOT of ire from good aligned gods, forcing The Keeper to construct an extraordinarily elaborate dungeon in an effort to stay safe from their wrath. With his skills at dungeon building, he has stayed safe so far.
  • The Keeper's dungeon is not only full of deadly traps, it is also populated by a large variety of monsters and creatures, as vile and evil as they can get. There's even heroes and adventurers that he managed to convert to his will through torture. There's also imps, but they're harmless and just wants to dig in peace. Unless you're getting close to the Keeper's heart.
  • Although he prefer to not get his hands dirty and let his hilarious traps kill heroes for him, The Keeper is also a powerful spellcaster and can and will cast his spells ANYWHERE in his dungeon. For example, he can cast a thunderbolt right on top of someone. And he only has to spend some gold (or mana on occasions) to perform his miracles.
  • Since it gets boring down there when there's no goody-two-shoes running from rolling giant boulders of death, The Keeper has sent adventurers under his control to the surface to spread the word about him having a treasure room full of riches just waiting to be grabbed by someone. As a result, The Keeper never gets bored thanks to foolish adventurers entering his death trap of a dungeon.
  • The Keeper has no physical body or voice other than a floating clawed hand that he uses primarily to pick up his own minions or captured adventurers. To talk, he possesses any of his minions and uses them as his mouth. It's usually an imp though, meaning that The Keeper is often high-pitched as a result.
  • The Keeper has imps running around in the pantheon so that he can keep track of what is going on at the moment. While a good deal of gods knows that the imps are spies, some of them finds them too adorable to do anything against.
  • The Keeper is highly unamused by Nanoha's ability to just blast through his carefully built dungeon. Not only does it ruin his hard work, but it's no fun if you're not going to navigate through his really awesome dungeon!
  • Do not under any circumstances mention the iOS game. Hell, don't even imply that Freemium is great. Last time someone did that, he dropped 20 level 10 Horned Reapers right on top of them and had an imp drag their unconscious body into the depths of his dungeon so that he may torture them. Ever since then, nobody has ever seen them.
  • As much as The Keeper hates heroes, he seem to have a special appreciation for Link, who proves to be a serious challenge to The Keeper thanks to his dungeon exploration experience. So he gets excited when Link decides to show up, so that he may learn from his mistakes and improve his dungeon design. The Keeper has sworn to build a dungeon that makes the Water Temple look like a cakewalk by comparison.
  • The Keeper is probably one of Black Mage's few allies within the Pantheon, likely because they're both villain protagonists. Plus, he finds Black Mage's antics hilarious. That said, if Black Mage tries to stab him in the back (not that there's a back to stab in the first place), he has some countermeasures in place just in case.
  • The Keeper recognizes the need to have someone clean the dungeon and make sure everything's working correctly, and he can't trust his minions to not mess something up. So he has hired Eario to take care of it during the downtimes, and gets his traps and minions to ignore Eario during work. Eario isn't sure what to make of The Keeper and his lifestyle, but the salary consisting of bags of gold convinces him to take the job anyway. He also has gone on record to say that if there's one redeeming quality about The Keeper, it's that he's a surprisingly decent guy when it comes to work.
  • Recently sent Barbatos Goetia an offer because of the demigod's reputation. If Barbatos joins his minions in defeating and killing heroes who enter his dungeon, The Keeper will grant him both riches and protection. Barbatos Goetia is taking some time to think about it.
  • Kecleons had somehow set up shops in various parts of the dungeon, selling items to adventurers who find them. The Keeper wasn't too happy to learn about that, and is currently looking for a way to get rid of these pests without triggering their rage. Until then, he's retorting to sending waves of minions on troublesome Kecleons.

    Lenneth Valkyrie 
"To my side, my noble einherjar!"

Lenneth Valkyrie, Goddess of Party Storage (The Lord of Creation, Chooser of the Slain, Platina, Meril, Battle-Maiden, Chooser of the Slain, Lady Valkyrie, Death, Angel, Thief of Their Beloved, The Accursed Valkyrie, Lenneth the Creator, Selector of Souls)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lenneth_valkyrie_8.png
  • Greater Goddess
  • Theme Song: Behave Irrationally (when collecting souls), Turn Over a New Leaf (when confronting evil)
  • Symbol: A feather plucked from her headdress
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral -> Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Einherjar Stored In Her Soul When Inactive, Benevolent Boss, Energy Bow and Sword, in Accord, Nibelung Valesti Soul Crush, Lady of War, Defrosting Ice Queens, Einherjar Need Her Alive To Continue Fighting, Timely Omnipotence, Restoring Things After The End, The Power of Creation
  • Domain: Valkyries, Crystals, Einherjar, Destiny, Creation
  • Herald: Silmeria Valkyrie (her sister)
  • Followers: Her einherjar
  • Allies: Odin, Freya, Arngrim
  • Enemies: Lezard Valeth, Kei, and Yuri, the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, The Divine Powers
  • Ascended to the Pantheon during it's early days after becoming the creator deity of her world. She used to be the Goddess of Creation, but new regulations required that she find a new title. After perusing her profile, the Court of the Gods decided she would represent Party in My Pocket due to how she literally stores her Einherjar/party members within her soul and powers them. It annoys her a bit, but as Flynn demonstrates, titles should not determine what she can or cannot do.
    • Even with her change in titles, she still takes responsibility in recreating parts of the Pantheon that have been destroyed in the wake of all the battles all over it, especially since there are several deities (even a Grand United Alliance) dedicated to destroying everything, even if there are the more "ambivalent" ones such as Beerus.
  • Given that most of them have since been reincarnated in her world, Lenneth actually doesn't have that many einherjar with her upon her ascension to the Pantheon. The only one who's stayed is Lucian, her Childhood Friend back when she was Platina, and Lenneth would rather not force the others to work for her again.
    • That said, she can still make einherjar out of denizens in the Pantheon who end up dying. She does have to surrender them eventually at the House of Life and Death for revival, though.
    • As for who she picks for einherjar, she prefers warriors with traits common in Good-aligned warriors, though non-combatants may also be recruited. Other traits include devotion to family and self-sacrifice.
      • That said, Lenneth is lenient enough to recruit less moral folk so long as at least one definite good deed has been performed throughout their life, as was the case for Badrach. The much less redeemable Gandar was only under Odin's orders.
    • Pantheon deities who temporarily become Lenneth's einherjar retain their combat abilities in life, but those without who somehow convince Lenneth's to take them in as einherjar are given Sorcerer abilities for the duration they're with her.
    • Einherjar normally have PWS attacks, but in the Pantheon, this is exclusive only to einherjar who were deities who have had a confirmed described final death (since everyone who isn't immortal all die one day), such as Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad (onscreen) or Amuro Ray (off screen, but confirmed later), but not Asterix (no confirmed death scene) or Aurora (despite having died twice, she's come back to life).
  • Given how badly things were between them, Lenneth was wary upon meeting the Pantheon's Freya and Allfather Odin, especially the latter. However, upon hearing of how... badly her versions regard humanity, the two Norse gods assured her that they're not that bad, although Freya has taken interest in her incarnation there, and has even decided to take that form on occasion.
    • As for Odin of the Divine Powers, she despises him (and the rest of his group) for their lack of regard for humans, and even finds them worse than her world's Odin or Loki.
    • Speaking of the Pantheon's Loki, she's still not sure what to think of him, but at least Thor will be there to keep watch on him.
  • Her battle cries, "It shall be engraved upon your soul!", "Come to me dark warriors, battle awaits us!" have been noted to not make a lot of sense in context. But no one seems to mind.
  • Having has to fight so much undead, demons, and other creatures, she's slow to trust such deities regardless of alignment, but it can be earned with enough time.
  • Doesn't know what to say about Mike Haggar due of one time when he piledrove Odin from Valhalla to Earth. The strength to challenge Odin reminds her a bit too much of Lezard Valeth. Though thus far, Mike has proven to be much more benevolent.
  • One of her worst fears has come true with the ascension of Lezard, her love-struck nemesis, into the Pantheon. She's keeping a very close watch on him.
    • She's also heard the unfounded rumors about how Harry Potter is an AU version of him without the lust for her.
  • The ascension of Arngrim came as a surprise to some, as other gods figured Lenneth's einherjar still existed within her. Lenneth explained that Arngrim's habit of getting reincarnated makes him a special case. And most of her einherjar have since been released back to her world with the exception of one. Still, he's willing to fight by her side if need be.

    Sackboy 
Sackboy, God of Level Creation
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/avatar_sack_boy_1_1545.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Pop-It
  • Leitmotif: "Get it Together!"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good with traces of Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: being in various degrees of punk, having a giant zipper, creating worlds of all sorts, doing what he does for smiles, not able to speak at all, able to fight others despite being tiny, always smiling
  • Domains: Happiness, Creation, Imagination, Sharing
  • High Priest: Tag
  • Allies: Steve?, Ratchet, PaRappa, the House of Craft, Maxwell
  • Enemies: The Negativitron, all gods in the House of Hatred and all members in the GUAE.
  • Rivals: Subject Delta
  • Flew all the way to the Pantheon on his base, The Pod, and immediately assembled his temple with little time to waste. His temple and power continue to grow as they are based on the creation and imagination of people around the world.
  • Sackboy has been called to help create new temples/fix areas of the Pantheon whenever a giant battle happens. His biggest achievement has been creating the new House of Friendship.
  • Visitors are allowed to enter and have their own fun in exploring, creating and manipulating the world around them. They also get the friendly help of the Narrator that guides them throughout the land. Many of the Gods have requested in Sackboy's help in additions to their own Temple, which Sackboy immediately complies.
  • Despite his friendly appearance, Sackboy recently found himself fighting other combatants from different worlds. Rather than go for power, money or glory, he went to these combatants so he could heal them and their worlds with the power of his creation. After his adventure, he came back, his prize being the smiles of people who create and share with others.
    • He unwittingly started a rivalry with Subject Delta due to having fought a Big Daddy in the Battle Royale, as well as how Sackboy was able to win the affections of his Little Sister through games.
    • There's also the fact that Sackboy, who is at best 8-inches tall, is capable of bringing Kratos to his knees (with a little help from Cole MacGrath and Nathan Drake. In fact, many are wondering why Sackboy isn't considered a full-blown Overdeity, considering that his power grows with all of the levels pouring into the world of LittleBigPlanet. The Narrator explains that it's Sackboy's mission to create to live, and that his imagination is to brighten people's worlds, not destroy them. Thus, Sackboy is fine with being a Greater God as long as people continue to use their creativity to their own liking.
  • Is adored by many of the female goddesses and conjures up many types of toys and games for them to play with. This also includes some of the more...unstable Gods like Alice.
  • For some odd reason, he can sometimes seen as a Sackboy version of Cole MacGrath, Nathan Drake, or PaRappa. Other times he can be seen as a Sackboy version of Solid Snake and even Revolver Ocelot.
  • Gets along well with Maxwell as they are known for creating all sorts of things to their liking. A prophecy states that when the end of the world comes, the two will use their powers to fill the new world with wondrous things the likes that no one has ever seen before. Until then, the House of Commerce has been making bets to see who can one-up each other to see what type of crazy things they can create.
  • The Runaway Guys have traveled through Sakcboy's temple once in their avatars: The Mustachioed Shark (Chugga), Mexican Penguin (ProtonJon) and Victorian Lady Gaga (NintendoCapriSun). Anyone who encountered them could only stare in amazement at how loud they were.

Intermediate Gods

    Final Fantasy IV Final Party 
Cecil Harvey, Kain Highwind, Rydia, Rosa Joanna Farrell, and Edward "Edge" Geraldine, Heralds of the Active Time Battle System (Cecil: The Split Soul, the Knight, King Cecil of Baron, Kain: the Dragoon, Hooded Man, Rydia: Rydia of the Mist, Rosa: Queen Rosa of Baron)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/853121_final_fantasy_iv_wallpapers_by_ff9fan99_on_deviantart_1600x1200_h_6.jpg
Left to right: Kain, Rosa, Cecil (his Dark Knight form above his Paladin form), Rydia, and Edge
Cecil in The After Years 
Kain in The After Years as a Holy Dragoon 
Rydia in The After Years 
Rosa in The After Years 
Edge in The After Years 
  • Applies to the group or two or more of its members:
    • Since their adventures during The After Years, they've learned how to perform Bands depending on their battle actions and who they perform it with. A lot of them tend to be Awesome, but Impractical, but there are a few that work well enough such as Effect Form and Trinity Crusade (initiated by Cecil, Kain, and Rosa).
    • Surprisingly, the party have battled Gilgamesh before in a moon.
    • For some reason, the group (especially Kain, Rosa, and Cecil) see a lot of things familiar to them in Gohan. Son of a well-known world saver, half-human, half-outer space race blood, undergoes strict training from a mean "sumbitch", is separated from his parents and undergoes tutelage by his father's rival, unofficial protagonist for a sequel series while his father is out of commission, and has the ability to suddenly power up at least twice his own strength in times of crisis? That sounds a lot like Ceodore.
    • Due to having fought off an entity called The Creator, who wished to destroy their planet because mankind didn't evolve to its preference, they naturally oppose other such planetary threats.
  • Exclusive to Cecil:
    • He used to shed his Dark Knight form to become a Paladin, but gained the ability to switch between the two forms thanks to Cosmos. Prior to that, he's also learned to accept it after shutting it out for 17 years.
    • Had once held the position of Yin-Yang Bomb after inheriting it from Leon Magnus. Cecil kept believing that Leon himself is battling his own demons. Now that the seat his vacant again with his own transfer, Cecil has taken to searching for a suitable candidate.
    • Is a member of the Sacred Knights, and one of the only gods capable of controlling its leader, Artix von Krieger, from smiting every single undead god in the Pantheon (which is not an easy task, mind you).
    • Thinks Firion has a thing for Lightning, and briefly played matchmaker. Firion appreciates it, but he has yet to succeed despite Cecil's efforts.
      • He also initially took Onion Knight's vow to protect Terra as a sign he's fallen for her.
      • This is all likely because out of all the Final Fantasy protagonists, he's the only one who's actually gotten married.
    • Is very against any form of being puppeted in any way given that's what he suffered in the hands of the Meanad.
  • Exclusive to Kain:
    • Other Gods look at him funny, thinking that he may betray them anytime. He claims that he has good reason to do so, and he is correct on the most part. It's just that many are wary that Melkor will to be able to make his next Face–Heel Turn a permanent one.
    • As a Holy Dragoon, Kain has a small repertoire of White Magic (Cure, Hold, Cura, Esuna, Teleport, Blink, Haste), though it's nowhere near as Cecil's.
    • When he heard word of the TV World and what it holds, Kain decided he would visit the place, as he didn't want to take the chance of another Dark Kain running rampant like before. Despite Yu's and Teddie's protests, Cecil and Rosa decided to accompany them. Thankfully, none of their Shadows interrupted the trip.
      • Eventually, the party encountered Shadow Kain, who did just like any Shadow would do; try to torment his host and bystanding companions with his darkest secrets, namely his jealousy of Cecil and his lust for Rosa. While Rosa has heard of this during Kain's final showdown against his Dark self, Cecil hasn't and this was news to him. To the Investigation Team members' surprise (though mitigated by the fact that he's conquered it once before), Kain was able to accept it, although no Persona was bestowed due to already having done so; he just hadn't done it in front of Cecil.
    • Reportedly fell against an army of creatures known as Manikins. Upon hearing that even Cosmos was unable to revive him, the Court of the Gods began searching for someone to succeed him (back when he still represented Dragon Knight). Before they could begin accepting applicants, however, Kain crashed through the roof of the building, very much alive, apparently having leapt there from the battlefield. Turns out he just got so bored slaughtering the Manikins that he fell asleep.
    • Pantheon eventually learned from Kain the arts of a 'Dragon Slayer'.
    • Back when he still held the title of Dragon Knight, there was Davion, who had once attempted to claim it but failed. Unfortunately, Davion's abilities were deemed too plain to be considered for the role. But it was a denial that Davion is now glad of, now that he holds Simple, yet Awesome.
    • While he doesn't mind those who do hunt dragons, Kain is one who prefers to emulate the behavior of dragons instead of hunting them. He is intrigued with the bond Rynn has with Arokh and how the two learned to work together to save her brother. He asked her how it was like to share a bond with the dragon, to which she replied as something that was to difficult to describe. She figured it would be better if he observed how they interact with each other.
    • Kain shares his name with an ancient vampire, and neither person has been happy with doing so. The Dragon Knight believes that it only further alienates himself from his allies, while the vampire is tired of having to answer that no, he is not associated with the former. With that said, the two are not exactly enemies rather than they have different opinions on the concept of good and evil. One wants to embrace the former over the later and there other does not care about which side he chooses.
    • While he wasn't included in the initial roster, Kain had a hand in later (technically, ealier) Dissidia cycles. He is appreciative of the support he has gotten from his Final Fantasy brethren.
  • Exclusive to Rydia:
    • Rydia kinda likes Ninjas, but refuses to go out with them. The whole invisibility thing unnerves her when she goes to the bathroom. Instead, she claims to have "fallen for" the childlike innocence of Negi Springfield, who reminds her of herself when she was his age…almost as if it were yesterday.
      • Speaking of ninjas, her situation with Edge is still ambiguous as of late. A few teases have come her way, and she ignores them for the most part.
    • Has no idea of what to think of the Demon Summoning Program used by folks such as Aleph, Flynn, and Kazuya. While far more versatile and accessible, it's also far more dangerous than her own brand of Summon Magic. That said, she's not wholly against forming a contract with some of the summoned demons herself. It's just a matter of finding the right ones.
    • Seymour had taken an interest in Rydia, and has plotted to take her life should she learn how to incorporate Magic Dances into her summoning rituals just like Yuna.
    • So far, she has formed contracts with this Pantheon’s Bahamut, the wandering swordsman Gilgamesh, and the legendary Pokémon Xerneas.
      • While Naruto offered their aid, Kurama was explicitly against becoming a Summon (he prefers Naruto only, and who knows if the shinobi might need him if he's busy aiding Rydia if he does accept?), so no contract could be made.
  • Exclusive to Rosa:
    • Unlike most white mages, she's capable of actually fighting with bow and arrows. As such, she usually goes training in the House of Weapons, or even visits Merida in the House of Royalty to improve her archery skills.
    • Serena takes great inspiration from Rosa as her devotion to Cecil parallels Serena's own devotion to Ash. When Serena had told the Arch-White Mage her talenote , and asked if there was anything further she could do, Rosa smiled warmly and replied "Just be true to yourself; he should come around in his own time". She also warned Serena not to put up with any senselessness on Ash's part, while making sure that she didn't embrace anything senseless herself. She has offered to examine Serena for any magical aptitude.
  • Exclusive to Edge:
    • In addition to his Ninjutsu, he's also learned the art of swiping items from the enemy. This goes as far as stealing Dark Matter from Zeromus (the Big Bad behind Golbez). That's right; he can somehow get his hands on a theoretical concept that has yet to be directly observed in the universe. Edge is just that good.
    • Seeing his interet in Rydia, despite his attitude, Princess Cadance and Kyu Sugardust (among others, as they're not the only ones) have both (separately, as the former doesn't like the latter) offered to help Edge in winning the summoner's heart (and in the alicorn's case, keep that love steady so he can further help Rydia raise the last Maenad).
    • Has moral qualms with hitting (friendly) women. Hostile ones, though, are no issue at all.

    Iji Kataiser 
Iji Kataiser, Goddess of Morality-Tracking Gameplay (The Human Anomaly)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iji.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Theme Song: Three Cans Later, Seven Four, Face to Face when in combat with a boss, Further by the end
  • Symbol/Weapon of Choice: Her Nanogun
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Pacifist), Chaotic Neutral (Berserker)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domain(s): Nanotechnology, Negotiation, War, Survival, Pacifism, Berserker
  • Mission Control: Dan Kataiser (her brother)
  • High Priest: the nameless hero of Dragon Slayer II: Xanadu (where the Karma Meter first originated)
  • Followers: The Hero of Bowerstone, the Spirit Monk, Valdo, Sarah, Marchal of Lander County, Daniel Dankovsky, Megaman Volnutt, the Hero of Neverwinter, the Hero of Waterdeep, Emil Castagnier, The Slayer of Demons, the Uplink Corporation agent, The Hero of Oakvale, Revan, "Cipher", Kayron Jarvis, all unascended protagonists that visited Silent Hill, Torque, Mr. Pink, Nick Kang Wilson, The Vault Dweller, The Chosen One, The Lone Wanderer
  • Diplomacy Tutors: Relena Darlian, Amu Hinamori (Pacifist only)
  • Combat Tutor: Adam Jensen (Pacifist only)
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: All evil gods in the House of War, all who desire war or are racist to humans, all Nazi deities and Expies thereof, all deities capable of destroying planets and willing to use that power to do so, Flowey, Agent Smith, AM, the Incubators, ADVENT, The Overlords
  • Distrusts: All aliens (Berserker only)
  • Respected by: The Illusive Man (Berserker only)
  • During Iji's ascension process, there were supposed to be two that would enter the Pantheon together, her Pacifist self (who inflicted 0 [direct] kills throughout her run), and her Killer self (who took out as many enemies as possible throughout her run), and they would occupy the Karma Meter seat. Unfortunately, a…disaster occurred during the transit that somehow resulted in the latter's death, and due to how things work in their world, the former decided to assimilate what remained of her Nano to 'keep her warm'. Due to that, upon arrival to the Pantheon proper, the Court of the Gods decided to grant Iji her current position.
    • Along with that Iji's Nano, she got a Reality Warper weapon called the Null Driver, which, after she first fired it in a clear area, resulted in a lot of screwing with the dimensions, after which she decided to never use after it proved potentially lethal. There was also the Scrambler, which screws with Iji's perception of everybody's words (including hers) into total nonsense. Oh, and she gets a fascination for "missile pony" toys.
    • And then it was decided that Iji's title wasn't really suiting and a trope change was in order. While the current Iji went to the TV World to acquire a Persona in order to get an advantage against magic-users, another Iji ascended after her death by Alpha Strike with a kill count of over 300. When the first Iji returned from the TV World, she has undergone some changes that better fit a pacifist as well as discovering some 'new' features in her Nanogun. When the two Ijis met, it went well, all things considered especially since Berserker!Iji realized what she had done then (though by that time it was too late), and they took their seat in their repositioned temple together.
    • There are other outcomes in their story aside from these two. In one, Iji rampages through the aliens, but either manages to restrain herself from executing General Tor after defeating him or wasn't berserk enough to even consider that. In another, whether or not Iji killed between 0 or 270 aliens, she spares Annihilator Iosa instead of killing her, and pays for it with her life. On the upside, the Komato change their ways, thus making her a martyr.
  • Applies to either or both:
    • Iji's temple is filled with Nano, which she uses to replenish her Nanogun and personal Nanofield. She can also sometimes find Nano all over the Pantheon, mostly in the House of Technology. There are also Cyborg Stations at her temple so she can re-spec her Nanofield in the event she ever needed to reboot it.
    • Her Nanofield is a work of accomplishment; it protects from all conventional weapons. Not even a nuclear bomb can get through, though radiation and force of impact would (probably, in the case of radiation) still be a factor, though she's immune to acid rain. The only things that can get through are more advanced technological weapons (though they usually have to be energy-based; most Mass Effect weapons are still ballistic, and so would be successfully stopped, but they will inflict Armor damage on her Nanofield), magic (either inflicting damage on the Nanofield or bypassing it entirely and injuring her), and weapons out of the same Nanotech as Iji's own. Melee attacks (unless they're too fast for the nanomachines to effectively block) do nothing unless coated with the same Nano, and crater impacts created if she is ever sent flying from such a blow would also do nothing, though she's not willing to test that out.
      • The Nanofield doesn't just protect the outside; somehow, it can protect the innards as well, which explains the Tasen's (the race the Nanofield was copied from) fascination for obscenely hot drinks (as in surface-of-the-sun hot). It's not known whether it blocks ingested poisons as well.
    • While not ascended, Iji's brother Dan was brought into the Pantheon as well to serve as her personal Mission Control (until such a time when a God of Mission Control ascends) as well as to give him a new place to live since their home world was essentially destroyed. Putting him in danger is one way to set her off real bad, and can even put her out of her pacifist mindset in that she'll clearly want to kill whoever harmed her brother and not feel guilty about it.
      • Now that one has come, he's sometimes over in Alia's temple, and Iji's relieved that there's another spot in the Pantheon that he can be safe in, helped by the fact that the sub-house has no evil deities in it (aside from having to exercise some caution with Varys and Lucy).
      • With Iji's trope change, he is a little confused now that there are two versions of his sister, but both treat him well.
      • A new discovery was also revealed in Iji's Nanogun; Passive Weapons, which can stun, send targets flying, steal Nano, neutralize projectiles, create barriers, hack from a distance, and so on. Pacifist!Iji uses these liberally, not that Berserker!Iji finds them useless either.
    • When half of her Nano-Health is brought down to half and she's down on the ground, Iji can unleash a Limit Break called Retribution, which consists of a massive array of explosions as she gets back up on her feet. It seems to only work once a day per House/"boss", though.
    • It's no surprise that with what she has been through that she hates the evil deities in the House of War, but given what the Komato Empire was, she also despises Nazis, actual ones or by any other name.
    • Kyubey once tried to have Iji forge a contract with him and become a Puella Magi to restore her world. While it was a sorely tempting offer, like everybody else, Iji knew not to trust him at all; the inevitable Witching-out will never be worth it.
    • Iji (both of them) has also forged a cordial relationship with Captain Martin Walker, as they have both been changed and broken as a result of war. While Walker is impressed with how she was able to stick with her principles despite the war around her, he's concerned that the Pacifist one already had to become a little insane (her really "technical" pacifism, for one) in order to reach her goal, and he pities the Berserker one for losing it like he does and failing to protect the people just like he did.
    • Iji's particularly frightened of Agent Smith's ability to convert others through data. Depending on its technology level, he can probably turn her into his unwilling conscious puppet by wresting her Nanofield out of her control. Still, his hatred for humanity means he must be stopped, and as a program, neither Iji has any compunctions about having him "deleted".
    • There are rumors that the D.C.M.F.P.R. Research Facility, where Iji's brother and late father worked in, was a separate branch or cover for XCOM, which explains how her Nanofield was reverse-engineered from the Tasen so quickly. Pacifist!Iji doesn't plan on working with them regardless, given her stance. Berserker!Iji however is all too willing to help them out and have them study her Nanofield.
    • Get annoyed when it comes to fighting those who constantly teleport in battle, having encountered their like before in the form of Komato Assassins. For the Berserker, it means they can easily deny her a kill by fleeing with their abilities. For the Pacifist, she can't tell if her next shot is going to kill them if they stay or if they're gonna eventually wise up and leave.
    • Is a participant in a tournament somewhat similar to that of Master Hand's.
    • Has read on an alternate universe where Sailor Moon and her allies battle the Komato and Tasen (who are one race in this instance) and work alongside agents of an organization called the Sisterhood of Nine, while Iji herself is confirmed to not make any appearance whatsoever. Incidentally, there has been no confirmed instances of this Sisterhood ever existing in fiction outside of this story.
  • Exclusive to Pacifist:
    • Curiously, Iji doesn't feel guilt about her kills if she reflects her foes' attacks back at them, arranges friendly fire by taking explosive shots to the face while standing next to them, rigs their weapons to explode and kill them (and hurt them enough before they fire it), dropping stuff from two stories up, setting up mutual foes against each other, of if her enemies are machines (bar more sentient ones like the Cybertronians). Other technical pacifists are a little disturbed by this.
      • As a result, a few detractors argue that Iji shouldn't represent the Pacifist Run at all. She replies that she represents the difficulty of performing the Pacifist Run in the face of discouragements in the form of relentless killers and advisories to just kill. What kind of pacifist she is is irrelevant.
      • Still, she decided to visit the TV World with a few members of the Investigation Team after much dissent from her followers. There, her Shadow mocked her for her self-delusion and prodded on her secret despisal for the aliens for wrecking her planet. Like many others who have faced their Shadows before her, Iji denied hers, but admitted before that that she could've been her Shadow in an alternate timeline, but isn't at present and won't ever be. A battle with the Shadow ensues (with the Investigation member asuring that Shadows can't be killed by their 'owners'). Once it's over, Iji confessed to her Shadow that her previous Technical Pacifist behavior (which turns out to be a borderline villainous version) was just a coping mechanism, to keep herself from becoming a berserker just like her Shadow by lying to herself that her enemies should know by now that she may reflect their shots, and so to shoot anyway would be their own fault. But now that she's in the Pantheon, no longer alone, with friends to back her up (and do the killing where she can't), and the fate of the entire world is no longer on (just) her shoulders, she can now behave more like a traditional heroic Technical Pacifist from now on; to fight without killing (well, for a start, she counts reflects as kills). And with that, Iji then acquired her Persona.
    • Iji has come to Relena Darlian and Amu Hinamori in hopes of learning better techniques in diplomacy, as she had failed multiple times when she tried. Admittedly, that was not her fault, but she still wishes to do a better job.
    • She also visits the House of Knowledge to brush up on her non-lethal fighting techniques and improve her judgment on whether someone is close to dying and how much more damage they can take from her before she has to stop. She also knows visiting the House of Combat would be best for her since marching through gunfire can only take her so far.
    • Iji's friendship with Adam Jensen is not only from both their potential to be pacifists, but from being rebuilt into cyborgs as well, though Iji is still more…human looking than Adam. That being said, Jensen puts the "fist" in "pacifist", because when he knocks someone out, he makes sure they stay down. She's hoping to learn from him on how to take down her opponents without having to kill them (in person).
    • She has also come to look up to Kenshin Himura, who is a very successful pacifist combatant, which she wishes to be. While the swordsman sympathizes with her plight, he's a little concerned with how "technical" her pacifism is, even with her no longer rationalizing reflected projectiles as not her fault.
    • Finds a bond in the Human Child/Frisk, and feels that had they not been due for their current title or had they came around years earlier, they could've been a better representation of the Pacifist Run than her. Frisk was also Iji's High Priest previously, but some people want that fact denied for some reason.
      • Some gods then realized that the two represent two polarizing ends of pacifism: one refuses to kill or hurt period, while the other merely refuses to kill personally. Of course, they have the potential to be each other, where Iji can act like a conventional pacifist if possible.
      • Through them, she found some sense of familiarity with Asgore Dreemurr, who reminds her of Komato General Tor, as both were difficult yet reluctant combatants, and pressured by public demand to commit atrocious acts.
      • Of course, she then came to befriend the Human Child's other friends, like Papyrus (who makes friends easily already), Sans (who behaves around her with a little caution), Undyne (who is impressed with her Nanogun and its abilities), Toriel, and so on.
    • Iji's too old to be manipulated by Flowey, but he decided to pester her nonetheless once, before her trope change. She refused to respond, knowing he speaks the truth.
    Flowey: For a so-called "pacifist", you sure got a lot of blood on your hands. I could say the same for that samurai in the House of Philosophy, but that was all in his past and has made an effort to actually be a pacifist since then. You may not have killed those aliens personally, but you're still the cause of some of their deaths. Sure, it could be their fault for hurting each other trying to kill you, but in the cases where you reflected their attacks, hacked their stuff and waited for it to blow up in their face, or tossed something down to hit them, that's all on you.
    • Has drawn the attention of a certain God of Stealth and found that the two of them have quite a bit in common: both brave despite the odds, only backup is someone speaking through a radio, and both fought to save their world because they were the only ones who can. Snake's concerned since she hasn't fought anywhere near as long as he did and thinks a talk with her would be nice.
    • Has casually taken up Yu-Gi-Oh! thanks to the Human Child. Reflecting her stance, her deck is a defensive one that ensures that any damage the opponent suffers is from their own doing, and has means of redirecting attacks to help with that, but its win condition is to deck out an opponent rather than reduce their Life Points to 0.
  • Exclusive to Berserker:
    • Given how she ascended (her planet (and herself) blown to bits by an Alpha Strike), Berserker!Iji's very distrustful of the following: 1) aliens, though she's been convinced to at least act civil around them when they have or are with human allies (e.g. Kirk, Shepard, Raynor), and 2) all deities with potential to destroy planets (e.g. most Dragon Ball deities), expressing outright hostility to the evil ones. She shares the second point with Pacifist!Iji, who is a little less pronounced in her caution around them except for the evil ones.
    • While she has been a berserker throughout her run, she's since mellowed down considerably, especially since it turned out that upon killing Tor, it's revealed by Kiron that Tor was giving her a Secret Test of Character, which she had failed, and it cost her her life (and planet), not to mention talks with Pacifist!Iji and her allies. That said, she's still the one among the two who won't hesitate to kill the enemy when it matters; she just knows that executing leaders isn't always the best way to stop an invasion, especially if they have WMDs primed.
    • The Illusive Man shows interest in Berserker!Iji, seeing her Nanofield as a remarkable asset for Cerberus. He also has respect for her, sympathizing with what she has been through. Unfortunately for him, she's being kept away from him by Pacifist!Iji (who has made friends with aliens), Commander Shepard, and the rest of the Illusive Man's (non-evil aligned) enemies.
    • Sans and the other Undertale deities (except the ever-loving Papyrus and the challenge-seeking Undyne) try and exercise caution around her, as her abilities make her a very dangerous foe to face. With so much Levels gained from her rampage, both in Nanofield from Nano collection and Violence from killing so many Tasen and Komato, in addition to actually having a legitimate weapon, she has the power to clear out the Underground had she fell there instead of the Human Child and if she had reason to wipe them out. Whether or not she has the determination to LOAD is a different matter.
      • Flowey approves of Berserker!Iji's philosophy, though fears her power like the others. In reality, though, he pities her, especially since her rampage resulted in her and her planet's own demise, and has cast extra doubt on his "kill or be killled" philosophy.
    • Feels a little envious of her Pacifist aspect for having a Persona, but knows that due to how the Midnight Channel works (and how Pacifist!Iji's Shadow was a lot like Berserker!Iji, she can't get hers the same way. However, upon hearing of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, she's wondering if she can get hers via the Metaverse, partly because she feels her drive has diminished after Kiron's revelation of Tor's test.

    Crono 
Crono, God of Waking Up at the Start and the New Game+ (Chrono, Cro)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Chrono_Trigger_Crono_3043.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Time Egg, AKA Chrono Trigger; alternately, his Infinity +1 Sword Dreamseeker
  • Theme Song: "Chrono Trigger"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Waking up at the start, fighting to change the Bad Future, silent main characters, wielding a sword and the light element (which covers both wind and lightning), red hair, MCs who die (temporarily or not, depending), starting all over again with bonuses
  • Domains: Time Travel, Good, Beginnings, Dream Achievement, Choice
  • Allies: Frog, Ayla, Marle, Serge, The Doctor, The Pantheonic Time Police (especially Trunks), Dialga, Present Trunks, Sora, Hiro Nakamura, The Defiers of Fate, Son Goku, Silver the Hedgehog, Lucina, Link, Phoenix Wright, Miles Edgeworth, Juror #8, Sae Niijima
  • Enemies: Lavos, Queen of Hearts, The Dahaka, Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash, Randall Ross, Master Xehanort, Manfred von Karma
  • Complicated Relations: Homura Akemi, Nox
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Magus
  • In the year 1000 AD, Crono woke up to a regular, sunny morning with no other ambition than to enjoy his town's Millennial Fair. However, that changed when his childhood friend Lucca's telepod malfunctioned and caused the disappearance of Marle, a mysterious girl Crono had just met at the fair. Crono was determined to bring her back and followed, and from there Crono and his friends learned of a plot to summon an alien parasite called Lavos that would destroy their world, leading to a time travelling adventure spanning millions of years in order to stop Lavos and change the future.
  • One of his friends, Frog, had been in the Pantheon for a long time and several times requested that the Main House ascend the rest of the team in order to keep a better watch on Lavos. His requests were delayed as it was judged that the Pantheonic Time Police would suffice and Lavos had been dormant the whole time it'd been in the Pantheon. Then one slow day, Magus apparently picked up the Idiot Ball and performed the ritual to summon Lavos so he could try getting rid of it once and for all. All by himself. It went about as well as you'd expect, and the rest of the Pantheon was taken by surprise. In the panic, the Main House finally listened to Frog and summoned Crono to the Pantheon so he could fight alongside Frog and Magus to subdue Lavos, which they did successfully. The Main House rewarded Crono with godhood over Good Morning, Crono and New Game+. Even though it took a dicey situation to achieve it, Frog is glad to have a friend (Magus doesn't really count in his eyes) on board.
    • Magus himself was indifferent to whether Crono or anyone else ascended or not and remains as standoffish and unfriendly as ever, and isn't even particularly thankful that he came to help during the aforementioned incident (some deities think he didn't grab the Idiot Ball and instead the whole thing was a gambit precisely so Crono would ascend, but he obviously ain't telling). Still, he'll readily fight alongside Crono if it means he gets to whale on Lavos.
    • Two women of Crono's team have also ascended: Ayla, who greeted him with a massive glomp followed by a tight squeeze, and with whom he has since spent playful times eating, drinking, and sparring; and Marle, who was more than happy to see her bethroted.
  • It may or may not be the case that Crono died a few years after his adventures with the fall of Guardia. He was one of the Ghost Children who appeared to Serge throughout his adventures, and at first chewed him out for messing with time and negating Crono's efforts to defeat Lavos. Ultimately, though, Serge corrected his mistake, so they're in good terms now.
  • Crono's temple is a replica of his house in Truce, where he was born. The Millennial Fair is adjacent to it so all the deities can have fun with its attractions. Leene's Bell is arguably its most notable landmark, and the one by which people know they're near Crono's temple.
  • It should go without saying that due to the major role time travel played in his epic journey, Crono has more than a few friends deeply associated with that way of travel. He is much praised by the Doctor for using time travel to save the world and generally do good.
    • Crono has formed close ties to the Pantheonic Time Police, not just to keep Lavos in check, but to stop anyone from trying to commit evil using time travel and hopefully avoid a bad future in the process. He's particularly close to Trunks as he also fought to avoid a Bad Future and the two often train their swordplay together. Trunks' Pokemon Dialga has also expressed interest in Crono, so Trunks has allowed it to sometimes accompany Crono on adventures.
      • From his time spent hanging out with Trunks, Crono met his Alternate Self. The younger Trunks became immediately attached to Crono since he reminds him of his Cool Big Bro Tapion, both for his story of time travel and looks. Crono is happy to serve as a role model for the young Trunks.
      • By the way, despite an uncanny similarity, Crono is not related to Trunks, or Goku or any of their friends, nor is he a Saiyan at all, even though his hair color makes him look like he's in Super Saiyan God mode.
    • He was a follower of Hiro Nakamura prior to ascending. The salaryman is a big fan of Chrono Trigger, so he'd been supporting Crono's ascension alongside Frog for a long time, and geeked out something fierce when he finally came up. He hopes to see the rest of the crew ascended.
    • Other heroic time travellers Crono made friends with include Silver the Hedgehog, Lucina and Link, who all relate to Crono's quest to avoid a Bad Future.
  • Conversely, Crono has made plenty of enemies who wish to manipulate time for their evil purposes, or who chastise him for daring to change his world's fate at all.
    • For the former case, there is Reverse Flash, whose machinations to ruin the Flash's life out of pettiness are abhorrent to Crono. Randall Ross is just unbelievable, wanting to destroy all of time (and therefore the world) through the Timenado just because he lost a volleyball game. To say nothing of Master Xehanort pulling various incarnations of himself from the timestream. At least Crono has an elemental advantage over that last one due to his magical element being light, which makes him good fighting partners with Sora, incidentally.
    • An example of the latter case is the Dahaka, who's furious with what Crono has done and wants to undo it, even if it involves the destruction of Crono's world. Of course, Crono isn't about to let the Dahaka steal his and his friends' futures away from them after they went through so much to secure them. Good thing the Dahaka is weak to water; Crono and Frog just spam Sword Stream whenever they face it, which fends it off for a while.
    • Crono's less sure what to think of Homura and Nox, recognizing that they have relatable and sympathetic motivations to do what they did. He can't forgive Homura for not being content with the kinder world that Madoka created and trying to undo it, or Nox for generally doing awful things. But he thinks they might be redeemable.
  • Since his quest to stop Lavos from destroying the world in the future was basically one big "up yours" to destiny, Crono has found himself some friends in deities who likewise won't let destiny stop them from achieving what they want, such as Lightning Farron and her team, who defied the gods themselves after they had given them a crappy mission to fulfill or else get turned into mindless monsters. Plus, they've had their own tangles with time due to Caius Ballad.
  • He has bad memories of being falsely accused and getting a bogus trial that nearly led to his execution had he not escaped prison. For this reason, he does not take kindly to the Queen of Hearts' penchant for Kangaroo Courts where she almost always sentences the accused to beheading, even for petty crimes. Crono also hates Manfred von Karma for his ruthlessness in getting the guilty verdict on all those accused to maintain his perfect streak.

    Draco Centauros 
Draco Centauros, Goddess of Idiotic AIs (Draco-Centaur, Dragon Woman)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_pic_13.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her green wings
  • Theme Music: Rival Battle!
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Horned, Winged, Draconic Humanoid, Cute Little Fangs, Cute Monster Girl, Butt-Monkey
  • Domains: Ditziness, Appearance
  • High Priestess: Sheva Alomar
  • Allies: Salamandinay, Tiki
  • (Mostly) Friendly Rivalry: Arle Nadja, Millie Collins
  • Enemies: Dollface (2012)
  • One of the many folks that Arle has met and played Puyo matches with, Draco Centauros is a dragon girl who knows martial arts, but her mind is not particularly bright otherwise. She often ends up confusing Puyo battles with beauty contests, something she's very interested in, and has a very competitive streak. Of the many Puyo characters, her AI is exceptionally weak and even when "Core AI" (which allows the Puyo characters to play a lot better than normal) is activated, Draco sometimes doesn't even bother with rotating her own Puyos. Then again, she's already kind of a ditz by default.
  • Draco ending up in the Pantheon was something she didn't realize until seeing Arle talk to a few people that Draco had no idea of beforehand. While it can be argued that Draco wound up there as a result engaging in Puyo battles with someone else, it's entirely possible that she just stumbled onto the place by accident and had nothing to do with playing with Puyos. After Arle finished her conversation, she saw Draco and was surprised to see her around in the Pantheon. Draco was even told that her living quarters in the Pantheon weren't too far from that of Arle's, meaning that Draco will get more chances to try (and most likely fail) to beat Arle in a Puyo battle. Neither have any ill will towards the other regardless.
  • She might have had a one-sided love towards the Dark Prince at one point in time, though unlike his repeated attempts to woo Arle, many haven't really seen Draco try to win him over. Then again, it's likely that she more or less accepted that Dark Prince is way too focused on getting Arle for Draco to even try to get his attention.
  • Draco became friends with Salamandinay, another humanoid dragon girl; though Draco was at first surprised at how Sala could actually turn into a real dragon and not just be a humanoid with draconic aspects present. Draco learned that Sala was a rival to a girl named Ange at first, but became a lot friendlier to her following a bit of friendly competition and hanging out with her. Sala noted Draco having a competitive side to her and the mostly friendly rivalry present towards Arle. She believes that given enough time, Draco will be more amicable towards Arle much like how Sala and Ange struck up a friendship after getting to know each other better.
    • She found another good friend in Tiki, who happened to have green hair in her human form at least and could also turn into a dragon like Sala can. Tiki is surprised that there was a humanoid dragon girl that not only hasn't been able to turn into a full-on dragon as far as anyone is aware of, but that Draco is reliant on close-combat skills compared to other dragons (humanoid or otherwise) who are proficient with attacking from afar (though Draco has fireballs for it). Tiki doesn't have any real issue with Draco regardless, though she is a bit unsure how to answer Draco's questions about fashion.
  • While she isn't that proficient when it comes to brains, her brawn is fairly decent and knows a few combat moves such as rapid-fire punches. Her competitive streak resulted in her going to the House of Combat to try and see if her skills are up to snuff compared to others. While she didn't do that bad during her initial session there, she ended up losing badly to some of the stronger visitors there.
  • The House of Costumes ended up getting Draco's attention since it was a potential place for preparations for actual beauty contests. Rarity, who happened to be a fashion designer, was willing to give Draco a run-down on fashion and beauty contests. Given Draco's competitive attitude, she wanted to try it out, though Rarity mentioned that it won't be as simple as just looking good in an elaborate costume to do well in a beauty contest.
    • It was then that she learned of a House of Popularity and that they were holding an actual beauty contest there. After a few preparations, Draco signed herself up for it and had a few competitors as well, including Millie Collins, who worked as a fashion model for a living. After the contest ended, Draco hung out with Millie for a bit and seeing the kinds of clothes Millie wore while the two were at Millie's place made Draco fairly jealous. The two don't hold anything against each other and Draco's competitive nature has resulted in a few beauty contests between her, Millie, and some other benevolent models.
      • Draco later learned about a couple of vile models and was very put off by them, with Krista Sparks in particular being very problematic for Draco. It's one thing that Draco can be a bit eager for competition, but she was mortified at how Krista is more than willing to murder anyone she thought looked better than her. That and Krista's idea of competition is way too deadly for anyone interested in beauty contests to accept.
  • To the surprise of some, it turned out that back then there were more Dracos in addition to this one, with a Super Draco Centauros being a stronger version of such. No one is really sure what happened to the other ones and this Draco will simply get confused if the matter is brought up to her.
  • Contrary to what "Centauros" may imply (or even more blatantly, Draco-Centaur), she is unrelated to centaurs in general. She is a humanoid dragon (or more accurately, a Dragon Woman); nothing more and nothing less.

    Duck Hunt Team 
Duck Hunt Team, Gods of Mocking Failure (Duck Hunt Duo, Duck Hunt, "Bark, Quack, Boom!"; Dog: That Lousy Dog, Mr. Peepers)

The Dog and The Duck. Not Pictured: The Unseen Gunman
  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: The NES Zapper.
  • Theme Song: "Duck Hunt Medley"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Annoying Laughs, Smugly Smiling, Being a Nearly Normal Animal, Being Nameless, Representing Other Games as Well as His Own, Taunting, Unexpected Newcomers.
  • Domains: Reception, Popularity, Hunting, Laughter
  • Allies: Insert Name Here (Stand-In for the Hunter), Jar Jar Binks, Courage, Xion, Sunset Shimmer, R.O.B., 9-volt and 18-volt, V.S.S.E.
  • Opposed By: the Nostalgia Critic, The Angry Video Game Nerd
  • Opposses: Hunters (The Duck)
  • Duck Hunt is a simple game where the player has to shoot down ducks to score points while the dog picks them up. Should the player miss all the shots and the duck gets away successfully, the Dog would proceed to laugh at the players failure. This made the dog a rather infamous figure and for the longest time the only thing people wanted was to shoot him. That mostly changed when the Dog, joined by a Duck and an unseen Hunter, were all invited to the Super Smash Bros tournament and the perception of the dog became better. The team were later invited over to the pantheon, but the Court of Gods haven't forgotten about the Dog's habit of laughing at others' failure and gave them a title related to that. The Dog doesn't really mind and it allowed his teammates to remain with him
  • Many deities that have come accross him had expressed a sudden urge to shoot the Dog in the face which variable results. Sometimes he is unharmed and sometimes he is not but if they happen to miss, he will laugh at them. This is why gunslingers aren't fond of him, since he is bound to show up if they happen to miss.
  • Many were perplexed as to how such an unlikely team was formed, considering the Duck was the usual target that the Dog and Hunter were after. There are varying theories regarding this but the most believed story is this one, which gave their relationship a more heartwarming spin
  • Then there is the mystery of who the Hunter is, who always assist both the Duck and Dog in battle. However, the only thing that any one knows about it is that the entity is a humanoid with a NES Zapper, and only trace it leaves to the actual world are crosshairs. Some people think that it is one aspect of (Insert Name Here), who's of course: "You!".
    • Some other clues other deities picked up on (them being retro game characters revived for a new generation, the use of a retro NES device during their trailer and it being used with such accuracy) has led some deities to believe that the shooter is...9-volt. Both parties refuse to comment on the speculation, and instead just do the trademark laugh of the duck hunt dog before going off.
  • And the unlikely partnerships don't end there. Sometimes the Dog is able to summon gunmen from Wild Gunmen and Hogan's Alley to assist him and the Duck on battle in all of their pixelated glory. He actually tends to find himself near western and mobster settings because of this.
  • The Nostalgia Critic fears him, as one of his previous line of work (The infamous 'you cannot beat us' commercial) made the dog poop himself badly, and due to this, he avoids him at all cost. If the Dog feels a bit trollish, he sometimes likes to bother the Critic by reenacting the commercial.
  • Due to their similar backgrounds, the dog and Jar Jar Binks have become close friends, and have been seen together on different occasions. Both are considered one of the most likely people to get suddenly attacked for no other reason than being generally annoying.
  • Fix-It-Felix Jr. of the House of Gaming played his game, and the dog got really scared. This is how it happened.
  • Was completely doted on by Xion not long after the latter's ascension, due to her love for Big Friendly Dogs. This dog is pleasantly surprised that someone's first reaction is to cuddle him rather than insult or try to maim him, thus he welcomes Xion's affections. The duck isn't as easily touched.
  • Being one of the precursors of Light Gun Games, the trio certainly get along well with the agents of V.S.S.E. who are the holders of the title but they respect the Duck Hunt Team for pioneering the genre. That said, most of the agents find the dog unbearable sometimes and because of habits, if the agents happen to shoot down a badguy, the dog will choke the bodies as if they were dead ducks, which unsettles the agents.
  • While the Duck might be on friendly terms with the Dog and Hunter, that doesn't mean that he tolerates hunters as he is very tired of getting shot at. He did admit that he finds being the moderating force behind the Dog to be a better job than being a target dummy.
  • When the Duck Hunt team learned that Banjo and Kazooie joined the Smash Bros. roster, they decided to visit Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong's temple to prank them in the same way King K. Rool pranked the Kongs earlier. However, Banjo and Kazooie soon caught wind of the prank and clobbered the Duck Hunt team.

  • By some event, or perhaps somebody's machinations, Han Jee-Han ended up learning the "Ascend" skill. Utilising it immediately thrust him into the Pantheon, whereupon several gods laughed at what his ability was, while a few of the more savvy ones seemed a tad apprehensive as to the potential of his Adaptive Ability.
    • [Ascend (Passive & Active) Lv MAX]: A skill that allows the user to attain divinity. Only having the skill is required to maintain the state after its initial usage.
  • Due to his "cheaty" healing skill, [Yunhon Soul Recovery], he sometimes helps out with the GUAG's Medical Division.
    • This skill, while effective on its own, can heal many sort of negative effects with something called a "Soul Stone", which Han Jee-Han can fortunately get just from killing monster in his own personal dungeon instances, and they apparently have nothing to do with Soul Gems. Probably.
  • Edward Elric has been researching him, due to the fact that his power broke the law of conservation by literally creating something from nothing.
    • On a related note, his powers make it so that anything broadly defined as a mob will drop loot when killed by him or anybody in his party, generally at least somewhat related to what the monster was.
  • He has made some trips now and then to the House of Knowledge, trying to find even more skills using "Skill Books". He was refused upon the realisation that using skill books caused the book the disappear, and is currently trying to reach an agreement where he can get copies of some books.
    • There are some books that Jee-Han will NOT be allowed access to, due to him being able to learn what abilities they can teach immediately, the consequences of which might be devastating. He's also strictly kept away from Zetta's Sacred Tome. Nobody wants to know what might happen with that one.
  • Because of his potential use as a Mana Farm, due to his body regenerating MP freely, some more unscrupulous energy/money-minded deities are attempting to capture him to use him, particularly the likes of Lord Tirek. Jee-Han does his best to avoid these deities. He has enough people gunning for him in his world, he doesn't wanna deal with more here damnit!
  • Gets along surprisingly well with Keima, as Keima to some extent envies Jee-Han's ability as it makes life a game, though not the sort of game Keima would prefer. Jee-Han gets along with Tomoko because he tends to gravitate towards the isolated sort of person.
  • Despises Basco ta Jolokia and Mori Motonari, the former for eagerly backstabbing allies should it suit his purposes and the latter for reminding him of The Company in how he callously treats his subordinates.
  • Has a strange sort of kinship with Kirito, Asuna and Shiroe, particularly the latter as they both tend towards using their brain to win fights over brawn. The three VRMMO players are a mite bit jealous of him not having any class restrictions for learning skills, but then again he's FROM a "real world" whereas they are bound (partially) by the rules of the MMOs they were trapped in.

    Murky 
Murky, God of Meaningless Deaths (Baby Murloc, Grunty)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/murky.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A piranha he is always carrying. (And uses as a weapon)
  • Theme Song: Roarcraft. I am Murloc when he gets Serious.
  • Alingment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Originally a pet turned full fledged badass in The Nexus, Cute little Critter but very dangerous, Not even death slows him down, Difficult, but Awesome, Wants revenge against the people who slaughtered his village, Shamu Fu, Small, Annoying Creature, his egg is where he revives faster, Murloc, Mrgglglbrlg!
  • Domains: Deaths, Revenge, Murlocs.
  • Heralds: Many Murlocs form his Homeland
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Arthas Menethil, Diablo, Leoric, Anub'arak, Kunkka, Dhuum
  • Odd Friendship: Big the Cat
  • Neutral Counterpart to: The Incubators
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Bruce the Shark, Rena Ryuugu, Sapphire Rhodonite
  • Some reports of a mysterious Egg found in the house of Aquatic Life led to that egg being investigated by The SCP Foundation. Days later, the Egg went missing and Little Creature by the name of Murky was found roaming the Pantheon.
  • Don't let his appearance fool you, Murky is very capable on holding his own against stronger opponents like Diablo or Arthas. However, he has been noted to die in battle...a lot, and he still returned for more minutes later. Tough no one can explain Murky's abilities he has been rewarded with a position in the Pantheon.
    • It has been once noticed that Bruce the shark once tried to eat him when he saw Murky. Unfortunately, Bruce learned the hard way to not mess with this particular baby Murloc, because since then, Murky has been using the Shark as a weapon.
  • He usually (When he is not motivated by revenge) is a pretty laid-back and nonchalant Murloc but he is very annoyed with Rena Ryuugu. Since the first time that he stumbled upon her, She inmediately wanted to "Take him home". Even him isn't that annoying.
    • He also had an encounter with Sapphire Rhodonite, who found him so cute that she proceed to give him a big hug that ended suffocating the Poor Murloc. Thankfully, he left his egg in his temple but since then he tries his best to avoid Sapphire at all costs.
  • No one seems to understand what he usually speaks, but his motives are much darker than it seems (even managing to scare Diablo of all people). According to Psychic gods (Since there aren't many gods who speak Murloc language), His village was slaughtered by Humans, Orcs and Elves and as a result wants revenge against the culprits but Mysteriously ended in the Nexus. This has Earned the Sympathy of many gods, particularly those who like him are Fish People.
    • Aquaman is actually one of the few people that understand his Language (Beside the Psychics). As a result, Murky usually goes to his temple for "Therapy Sessions"
    • Meron is actually a little jelous of Murky, Since she always wanted to live a tragic story like him. Murky still can't believe that a Mermaid Princess, wants to actually experience the feeling of witnessing your village getting slaughtered. Even if she really didn't meant Ill will, He can't help but Facepalm when she says that.
    • Actually good friends with Leviathan the Tidehunter after their first meeting. Tidehunter really Admires Murky's Determination and sees him as the little brother he never had. He actually is training him so he can finally defeat Kunkka for good. Murky even has gotten used to some of Tidehunter's Ocurrances.
  • Befriended fellow god Sasuke Uchiha after he heard his story, since he also lost all his village as a kid. Sasuke actually tries to warn Murky to not let hatred drive him or Pursue a similar Path like he did, Or worse, end up like Ren Hakuryuu.
    • Kratos also identified with Murky's backstory, seeing in him the young and angry boy he used to be. Murky has been acting as some kind of Morality Pet to him lately, but he still brings him to battle when the time calls.
    • Murky is one of the few animals who isn't scared in the presence of Sayo Samonji and the latter actually encourages him to take revenge on all the people who wronged him. While Murky is grateful of the Boy's proposal, he is trying to lay off Vengeance for now.
  • A frequent visitor of the house of Food where he usually order his favourite food, the Puffer fish. Since his arrival, the fish food has decreased in quantity and many suspect that he has been stealing some of them to use them in battle.
    • It was later proven true that he indeed, had stolen those fishes and illegally sold them around the pantheon. The court of gods in retalation, has forced him to repay all the loses the house of Food experienced because of him. The solution? He opened a particlar Taco joint where he mixes tacos with Fishes. Since then Murky's Pufferfish Tacos has become a really popular point of interest in the Food House.
  • Has been ocasionally spotted doing a Special dance.
  • He usually can't stand Humans, but he has found a kindred spirit in Kenny McCormick, thanks to Kenny's Condition. Altough, Murky wonders where does Kenny respawns, But since Murky does this from an Egg, he thinks that Kenny might do something similar. This was confirmed true when Kenny told him that indeed, every time he dies he is reborn from his mother
    • Mysteriously enough, he gets along pretty well with Grenth, partially because Grenth is curious how Murky manages to revive minutes later after being killed. He has been taking closer looks to the eggs that the Baby Murloc carries so he can understand the nature of Murky's Unknown powers.
  • When Dhuum heard that another god who can cheat death entered the Pantheon, he want ballistic and demanded to see him. When he found Murky, he couldn't take him seriously and cutted him with his Scythe. Unfortunately, He wasn't prepared for the Murloc's Rampage and was ultimately defeated because Murky refused to stay dead for more than two seconds. He sweared to get him back sometime, but this conflict became much worse when he learned that Murky befriended his Archnemesis Grenth. Witnesses reported that dhuum didn't take the news very well
  • Once, he was found wearing a power armor and surprisingly, it looked really good on him. Many suspect this was the doing of Rena Ryuugu but she didn't comment on being involved with the creation of Grunty.
    • On another ocation, he was seen wearing an Easter Bunny suit. It was so cute that he was later spotted running away from a legion of Goddesses who wanted him as a Pet.
  • Note: Murky's status in the Pantheon is radically different than other deities, in the sense that he is one of few deities that his "Death rules" apply differently than the rest of the Ascended deities, alongside Grenth. (Altough he can still normally die, he has the distinction of always resurrecting inmediately from his egg)
  • "Mrgglglbrlg rmrmgllg mrggggm" note 
  • Also present in the House of Life and Death.

    Nier 
Nier, Divine Herald of Save Data Deletion (Papa/Brother Nier, Replicant Nier, Twattycake, Defender of the Innocent)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nier_nier_artwork.png
Left: Father Nier, Right: Brother Nier
  • High Priest: The Fallen Child in the Genocide Path
  • Allies: the Monster Hunters, Grimoire Weiss
  • Enemies: Shades, any form of The Heartless (like Mr. Scratch), and any of its leaders (like Master Xehanort)
  • Pitied by: Celestia Ralgris, Luke Skywalker
  • Opposes: Caim and Angelus (for screwing with his world), 9S
  • Opposed by: Geralt of Rivia, A2
  • Conflicting Opinion: Yu Narukami, Ryotaro Dojima, 2B
  • In video games, the best thing about them is that you can do whatever you want. Take Your Time, get Sidetracked by the Gold Saucer, level grind, and indulge in Video Game Cruelty Potential (and wait out your punishment before doing it all over again). After all, it's nothing a little Save Scumming can't fix, right? And then there are the games that threaten to take that away, too.
    • Nier himself isn't someone who enforces this, but rather is a "victim" of this, yet his end was so It Was His Sled iconic that the Court decided to ascend Nier for Deletion as Punishment. But how do you bring back someone who was Ret Gone? Well, that's because right before the deletion, they turned that "deletion" into a "file move", thus still removing Nier and everything about him from his world as they brought his "data" into the Pantheon and reconstructed him.
    • That said, the deities at work on bringing Nier got things mixed up so that they ended up bringing in two Niers; one is a young adult, and one is middle-aged. As it was too late to rectify this issue, and because the retrieval teams technically both brought the "correct" Nier, it was decided that they both stay. After filling them in on what the Pantheon is all about.
      • That said, by Word of God, the younger Nier is the "canonical" one because he'd be the type to sacrifice himself to save Kainé, the woman he loves, whereas the older Nier would be more likely to Mercy Kill her so he can be there for Yonah. But their ascension has already been done, so they both stay, and as a result of History Repeats, both of them are "canon" anyway.
    • As for what is to be told about their worlds; they decided to relay the following (since some might tell them anyway out of spite): Nier's actions basically doomed the entire human race in their world to extinction. "Thankfully", there were still remnants on the moon that—millennia later—would eventually direct androids—such as 2B—to reclaim the planet from machines led by aliens (hey, millennia have passed; a lot can happen in that time). Although that turned out to be a farce perpetuated by YoRHa. The lie the Court did tell though was Yonah's (and Kainé's) fate. Rather than tell them she dies anyway to the Black Scrawl in a few years, they were instead told that she lived a fulfilling life until old age eventually claimed her.
    • As for why Yonah and their friends could not be brought here, the Court says that that was the price of sacrificing their existence; the price cannot be rendered moot. Grimoire Weiss though was fair game since he did also sacrifice himself in the final battle and is being ascended soon. For the time being, they have to settle with simple swords (or lances).
    • And they eventually reunited, though the book was initially confused with having memories of both Niers. And as for timeshares between being at his own temple, going with either Nier, or even going out by himself, well, that will be handed in their own time.
  • Applies to either Nier:
    • Being from a world cursed with Endless Daytime, his first witnessing of night in the Pantheon left him in absolute awe, wishing that Yonah was here to see it.
    • Thanks to the knowledge of his world's past, he greatly despises Caim and Angelus because their coming to their world led to its inevitable end. Caim on the other hand wants his weapons back as some of Nier's findings were originally his.
    • While a good man who does good whenever he can, Nier's refusal to think about his actions tend to have some horrifying consequences. What he sees as monsters he refuses to see as possibly more than that. As such, he's often forced to stand down by deities with more restraint more times than either would like.
      • On the plus side, though, he's willing to do even the most meager of tasks just for the sake of helping others.
    • There are those who use Nier as an example of why you need to have perspective if you wish to be a hero, citing his ignorance resulting in being seen as a Complete Monster to the Shades as he even slaughtered their "children" as a prime reason.
      • That said, there are those who pity him, such as Celestia Ralgris, whose attempt to do good had terrible consequences for Lux Arcadia, and Luke Skywalker, due to the events in The Last Jedi.
    • Somehow, he can even drift with a giant boar! It needs to be seen to be believed.
    • Thanks to a certain old man, Nier is an exceptional fisherman, able to pull out all sorts of aquatic life, including sharks and ancient fish. Now in the Pantheon, this sometimes also includes the aquatic monsters the Monster Hunters hunt. Sometimes, he even ends up involved in their hunts and they accept his company.
    • Has experience with having to face a ridiculous number of projectiles, though his weapons can harmlessly block them.
    • Drowns in any water deeper than his ankles. Though he'll just lose a bit of health (unless in a safe haven) and wash up somewhere nearby for their troubles. The reason why is because he never knew how to swim, since he was forbidden from coming into contact with the precious water resources.
    • Given what happened to humanity in their worlds, Berserker!Iji is reminded all too well of her own lack of thinking that also doomed hers. The worse part is that while Nier was doing it all for the sake of Yonah (with an added racism against Shades), she had "merely" sunk too deep in her rage against the invading aliens that she lost sight of her original objective; to get the invading aliens to leave Earth/Origin. By killing General Tor, the only one willing to listen (after taking a beating), the Komato responded with a full Alpha Strike.
    • Captain Martin Walker has contempt for him as well despite sympathizing with his desire to protect/rescue Yonah. Walker at least had the excuse of being completely insane when he failed to save Dubai. Nier on the other hand was willfully ignorant of the consequences of his actions like the extinction of the human race and took no time to reflect on them.
    • Given the very excessive measures Nier has done to rescue his sister (for Brother Nier)/daughter (for Father Nier), Yu and Ryotaro (who have similar family dynamics with Nanako, even though Yu is actually her cousin rather than her brother) are very disturbed by this and wonder what they would've done had they been in Nier's position. Would they have not cared about the human race all just to save her? In hindsight, of course they wouldn't (and would live with their consequences), but otherwise…
    • Heard of what had happened to Emil through 2B and 9S (that he's all right, fought a war with aliens, became a merchant, and so on), and is pissed with the latter since the Scanner android stole from Emil's house and later fought him.
    • 2B also doesn't like him either since it's his fault humanity went extinct in their world. Yet, if it weren't for him, there would never have been a reason for YoRHa to be founded at all, and she and 9S would never exist. At the very least, she wants nothing to do with him.
  • Exclusive to "Father" Nier:
    • Word of Nier eventually reached Geralt as comparisons were drawn between him and the "newcomer"; both were white-haired swordsmen who are also fathers and use magic on the side. The differences became apparent when the two finally met though in a bar; Geralt's magic is his own whereas Nier uses Grimoire Weiss, he'll hold no comment over Yonah (at least Ciri can fend for herself), Nier still goes out of his way to help the common folk while Geralt has long since given up on that (though he will help if he gets roped into it or if his loved ones are in danger), and there's also the "little" issue of Nier refusing to think things through when it comes to killing monsters, like if it's completely ambivalent, or even innocent, while Geralt isn't nearly as ignorant especially since Nier's actions brought about the extinction of the human race. The last bit triggered something fierce and it resulted in a swordfight Bar Brawl. They've been on bitter terms ever since.
  • Exclusive to "Brother" Nier:

    Plesioth 
Plesioth, God of Hitbox Dissonance (Master of the Great Lake, Wyvern of Water, The Underwater Terror, Plessy; Green Plesioth: The Tide, Green Plessy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/monster_hunter_plesioth_1753.png
  • Lesser God (Green Plesioth is an Intermediate God; the ones that can be fished are Quasideities)
  • Symbol: Its icon
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: the hipcheck, Stock Ness Monster, Glass Cannon, Threatening Shark, Making a Splash, being reduced to monsters that can be fished in the fourth generation
  • Domains: Monsters, Lakes, Hitboxes
  • Size: 2153.1cm-3877.9cm
  • Followers: Anubis Rex, Sapphiron, Thaddius, Chief Scalpem/Wigwam, a group of sentinent, man-eating pumpkins, Daimon, Ceaseless Discharge, Blood-starved Beast, Bloodletting Beast
  • Allies: Lapras
  • Enemies: Lagiacrus, Greninja, Asuka, Suwako Moriya
  • Opposes/Opposed by: The Monster Hunters, deities that can use fire or electricity attacks (and the entire House of Fire & Heat and Electricity to that extent)
  • Looked at with interest by: Cirno
  • Many who have fought against this thing tend to be frustrated for a few reasons. The fact that it's mostly underwater is only the start of it. It has an unusual height and their tail sweeps can hit those that are even overhead. That's not even going into the hipcheck as well.
  • It was in the Pantheon at a certain point in time, but it somehow disappeared. Many believe that it was simply underwater during the times it had disappeared.
  • There is a variant of this species in which it's very tiny...at first. Suffice to say, after watching that particular creature in action, some hunters have been making plans to target one in the event it's running to some water.
  • Some deities have reported seeing green-colored variants of it. Reports have stated that the Green Plesioth is more aggressive than the regular kind.
  • Frogs happen to be their favorite food. Greninja doesn't like them for that reason. The frog is also opposed to being used as bait to lure out the Plesioths.
    • This also didn't go over well with frog-lovers Asuka and Suwako Moriya, who have been going after the monster whenever it is pursuing Greninja.
    • Cirno, on the other hand, has been thinking of using the Plesioths to try and get rid of any frogs that come her way. A few are wondering how it will turn out when the time comes.
  • If either kind of Plesioth gets out of hand, deities that are capable of using fire or electric attacks are called in to subdue them. Both the regular and Green Plesioth don't really like those deities.
  • Avoids the Lagiacrus and its subspecies at all costs due to the Leviathan's strength and the fact that its attacks will severely damage or even kill these Piscine Wyverns.
  • By default, they are not very aggressive, though they end up taking the offense when it recognizes a threat. Most deities make it a point not to anger the creature when they see one.
  • Some deities have begun fishing for smaller versions of the creature. These variants are considered to be far less of a threat compared to the regular versions.

    Seija Kijin 
Seija Kijin, Goddess of Interface Screws and Contradiction
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_th14seija21.png
  • Lesser Goddess (Intermediate Goddess when using all of her items)
  • Theme Music: Reverse Ideology
  • Symbol: A circle made out of black, white and red arrows.
  • Alignment: The Opposite of You. Though to give her one alignment, Chaotic Neutral with emphasis on Chaotic
  • Portfolio: Screwing with the screen, Those who Oppose Anyone, Thinking The Opposite of People, Trolls, Weak Powers, yet being That One Boss, Turned Playable, Amanojaku.
  • Domains: Youkais, gameplay, conflict.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Her own Itazura Griefers group (Lambdadelta, Miyo Takano, Rei Shingetsu/Vector, Tohru Adachi, Gengar, Ratatoskr)
  • Opposes: Everyone else! But in particular, The Trollkaiger. Especially Terumi.
  • An amanojaku who exists to be the opposite of everyone else. In her home realm, she was the manipulative mastermind of the Miracle Mallet incident, which had effects on Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame and Sakuya Izayoi, who started to act weirdly due to their weapons having been possessed. Though she is not that strong, she was still really difficult.
    • However, her ascension came when she became a star of her own game, where she was able to clear out almost impossible spell card patterns using a bunch of (empowered) junk, truly impressing everyone.
  • If it wasn't clear already, Seija opposes everyone. Not in the sense of "being the ultimate evil" like Anti-Monitor or Grima, nor an Omnicidal Maniac Knight Templar like Zamasu, but more like "a Troll who wants everyone to hate her". That is the true nature of an amanojaku, after all.
    • Because of this, Trollkaiger has gained interest in her, and want her to join their ranks. Where Seija does not like to amuse anyone with her actions, she thinks that being in a group who would oppose almost everyone in the Pantheon would be a great idea. She has no plans on officially joining them, however.
    • Ironically, she is the only associate of Trollkaiger who knows about Terumi's existence. Why she is allowed to know about his existence? Simple: Seija thinks that telling about Terumi would be way too easy and figures she can benefit from keeping Terumi a secret.
  • She knows the visual similarities she shares with Ryuko Matoi. She has gone as far as to wear a fake Senketsu and carry a fake Scissor Blade to intentionally piss her off. However, she has made a deal that she can mess with Nui Harime if Ryuko can suggest good enough of a plan.
    • Another favourite target of hers is Viridian. She just loves to screw with him whenever he is flipping gravity around.
  • To the surprise of many, she actually helped Sakuya and the rest of the Scarlet Devil Mansion crew to save Remilia and make her a goddess. Apparently she just wanted to show that she is not really on GUAE's side by attacking Dracula and Dio Brando, and to piss off Terumi by having another "shitty vampire" ascend.
  • Was surprised that Shinmyoumaru Sukuna managed to ascend into the Pantheon. However, in something of what can be considered kindness, she decided not to give her a "welcoming party" and left her alone for now. Seiji claims that it is simply because of her being such a good tool before the Miracle Mallet incident was solved.
  • Her co-operation with the Trollkaiger came to a stop when she became the leader of the Itazura Griefers. Why is she the leader? Because that position is where she's least likely to screw with the others. Why did she accept it? Because to her, a neutral group between LOL Rangers and Trollkaigers would mean that she can mess with anyone she wishes and not be weighted down by her "Alliance".
  • Also can be found inside the House Logic.
  • "The way you reject is the way that I choose, since I know it'll drive you insane..."

  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Symbol: A scale model of the Japanese Destroyer Akatsuki
  • Portfolio: Attempting to be a Proper Lady, Aloof Dark-Haired Girl, Nice Hat, Curtains Match The Windows
  • Domains: Children, Naval Warfare, Oceans, Irritation

  • Enemies: Wo-class, Re-class, Seaport Princess, Northern Ocean Princess, Deidara
  • Admires: Any good aligned Yamato Nadeshiko's
  • Commonality Connection: All ascended Blizzard deities
  • Japanese Destroyer Akatsuki is the 21st member of the Fubuki class of destroyers and the namesake of the Akatsuki class of destroyers.
  • Akatsuki has a very childish personality and much to her chagrin, many deities often won't take Akatsuki seriously as they find it cute how she's trying really hard to be a Proper Lady and ends up coming off as more childish.
  • One easy way to irritate Akatsuki is to pet her on the head when she does a good job as she feels that she's being treated like a child despite the fact Akatsuki should be glad that she's getting praised for doing a good job.
    • Due to this, Akatsuki has been seen getting along with many of the ascended Blizzard Entertainment deities as Akatsuki shares their hatred of being touched. Especially the Orcs, they really hate being touched.
  • It's not uncommon to see Akatsuki with Mako Mankanshoku or Nora Valkyrie as Akatsuki gets along well with them due to sharing vocal similarities with the both of them.
  • Akatsuki was very surprised to find that many Fleet girls had ascended prior to her but was even more surprised to find that the rest of the Akatsuki class had ascended before her despite being being the namesake of the Akatsuki class of Destroyers.
    • However Akatsuki doesn't hold any grudges against the Court of the Gods for ascending Hibiki, Ikazuchi and Inazuma before her as "it's not befitting a Proper Lady to hold grudges".
  • You can sometimes find Akatsuki hanging around one of the good aligned Yamato Nadeshikos of the Pantheon as they're the kind of deities that Akatsuki aspires to be like and wants to learn how to be a Proper Lady from them.
  • Due to her name and when she was in service, some deities have; on occasion, confused Akatsuki for someone else who fought during the time of World War II and was called Akatsuki.
    • Don't confuse Akatsuki for a certain group of dicks as not only is Akatsuki completely unrelated to them but Akatsuki is also very familiar with the things that they've done and Akatsuki despises said members.
  • Ever since the time when Destroyer Division Six entered a curry cooking competition and ended up winning even though they made mild curry, Des Div 6 have made frequent visits to the house of food to learn from some of the deities there so they can finally make a spicy curry.
  • Due to her talents at taking care of kids and the low fuel and ammo costs of Destroyers, Tenryuu can frequently be seen looking after the Akatsuki shipgirls. This has made said Akatsuki Shipgirls a lot closer to Tenryuu than other shipgirls.
  • Has an appearance in a few video games about World War II in the Pacific.

    Kaepora Gaebora 
Kaepora Gaebora, God of Player-Agreed Expository Repetition (Rauru, Sage of Light, Spoiler Owl)

  • Opposed by: Brentalfloss, many gamer deities.
  • The Sage of Light Rauru, also known by his animal alias "Kaepora Gaebora", is one of the Ancient Sages of Hyrule. After taking the shape of an owl and using his knowledge to assist Link on his quest to defeat the King of Thieves Ganondorf Dragmire, Rauru was allowed a spot on the Pantheon, although he was only granted access through his owl form.
  • Stationed at the very entrance of the Pantheon, Kaepora Gaebora was entrusted with an important mission from the commanding deities: to explain the workings of the Pantheon to newcomers and make sure that they understood everything.
    • Because of his long and tiresome explanations, most of the newcomers tend to doze off halfway through, which might cause them to accidentally accept his offer to repeat everything all over again after finishing. He is particularly unpopular with deities who have experienced Link's aforementioned quest through gameplay, such as Brentalfloss
  • Being a representative of Light, Kaepora is firmly opposed by the Grand Duke of Owls, who hates the sun and all forms of light. Kaepora does not acknowledge the Duke's title, being only loyal to the royal family of Hyrule.
    • Aware of the Duke's schemes, Kaepora has requested Link to teach Chanticleer how to sing the Sun's Song, a magical song that can turn night to day and vice-versa, which might come in handy in case the Grand Duke attempts anything.
    • Kaepora is also keeping an eye on Clockwerk/Neyla/Clock-La, being ready to warn Link of any suspicious behavior from the robotic owl (Clock-La appears to be interested in Link's equipment, the Master Sword in particular). Thankfully, the Hylian is experienced in dealing with Giant Flyers, having slain a few of them in his many incarnations.
  • Kaepora believes Decidueye can make an excellent hero of its own, and has put himself at its service in case the Arrow Quill Pokémon ever requires guidance.
  • Kaepora has been trying in vain to convince Winnie-the-Pooh that he is not his owl friend from the Hundred Acre Wood. That silly old bear just doesn't learn.
  • Also has a seat in the Subhouse of Narrative Structure.
  • He's an owl.

He is particularly unpopular with deities who have experienced Link's aforementioned quest through gameplay, such as Brentalfloss.
  • *Button Mashing Noises* Being a representative of Light, Kaepora is firmly opposed by the Grand Duke of Owls, who hates the sun and all forms of light. Kaepora does not acknowledge the Duke's title, being only loyal to the royal family of Hyrule.
    • *Button Mashing Noises* Aware of the Duke's schemes, Kaepora has requested Link to teach Chanticleer how to sing the Sun's Song, a magical song that can turn night to day and vice-versa, which might come in handy in case the Grand Duke attempts anything.
    • *Button Mashing Noises* Kaepora is also keeping an eye on Clockwerk/Neyla/Clock-La, being ready to warn Link of any suspicious behavior from the robotic owl (Clock-La appears to be interested in Link's equipment, the Master Sword in particular). Thankfully, the Hylian is experienced in dealing with Giant Flyers, having slain a few of them in his many incarnations.
  • *Button Mashing Noises* Kaepora believes Decidueye can make an excellent hero of its own, and has put himself at its service in case the Arrow Quill Pokémon ever requires guidance.
  • *Button Mashing Noises* Kaepora has been trying in vain to convince Winnie-the-Pooh that he is not his owl friend from the Hundred Acre Wood. That silly old bear just doesn't learn.
  • *Button Mashing Noises* Also has a seat in the Subhouse of Narrative Structure.
  • *Button Mashing Noises* He's an owl.

  • In many a video game, there is a Life Meter; a way of discerning the health of the player character. It can be a Hit Point bar, hearts, but it's very common. Sparx, however, is one of few who's both a Life Meter and a character. The blood brother to Spyro the Dragon, after Spyro rescued him they've been the best of friends. Together they've faced evil sorcerors, evil dragons and have been heroes to their universe time and time again.
  • Treasures the close friendship he has with Spyro the Dragon deeply, and is always looking out for him. He respects the likes of Gardevoir and Gallade for being guardian entities.
  • His color denotes the overall health of Spyro. Each hit drops from yellow to blue, blue to green and then leaving Spyro until he gets his health back. By attacking some of the animals like sheep it brings forth butterflies, which by eating restores a bit of health. Blue butterflies, in particular, are delicious for Sparx, adding a new life for Spyro. Mothra was a bit uncomfortable with him around, though the dragonfly's responsible enough to not hurt her.
  • Suspects that Spike is related to Spyro, due to how similar they are in appearance. He thought Sonic may be on good terms with Spyro as the latter took a lot from the former, however there doesn't seem to much of a relation between the two. The similarity in personality does lead the two to get along, and he also gets along with Tails the Fox due to being the brotherly sidekicks of a Mascot with Attitude.
  • Asides from determining Spyro's help, he also can collect nearby gems and jewels. Later games would allow him to retrieve them directly from boxes without Spyro needing the bust them open. This power has caused some trouble in the Trope Pantheon due to, on his way to seeing his friend in the Dragons sub-house, he ended up stumbling into Smaug's layer and taking some of his valuables. He did NOT take this lightly.
  • Was glad to see that an old ally of him and Spyro, Crash Bandicoot, had ascended. He was much less pleased to learn that in the time between Spyro and his own ascension, the Polygon Man had redeemed himself from The Fallen and wasn't happy with the two. Or that Neo Cortex had ascended after his arch-nemesis did.
  • Doesn't have too much to do with his own houses, though does seem to be friendly with Ana Amari and Tony Tony Chopper due to their healing position.
  • Shares close ties to the Dragons sub-house. Asides from his friendship with Spyro, he lives in a world of dragons so he's on good terms whenever he visits there. Plus he is a dragonfly after all. Naturally, he is utterly opposed to Acnologia's screaming hatred of dragons and overall depravity. Doesn't like the fact that a dragon-slayer, Dovakhiin, shares the same house his closest of friends does.
  • Became more capable over time, eventually being playable on his own right. He gets along with Globox due to them becoming tougher over time, and their roles as sidekicks.
  • Being a dragonfly, he isn't fond of anyone trying to capture him in nets or jars. Bowser has become an enemy for trying to bottle him up like he did with the Sprixies, believing there's potential power in him. Denzel Crocker meanwhile believes that catching him might be useful for his bigger schemes of capturing FAIRIES!!
  • Able to travel underwater in a bubble. This ended...poorly when visiting the houses of Commerce and Friendship, as it gave Spongebob and Patrick really bad memories about Wormy and caused them to panic.
  • When Spyro joined his friend Crash Bandicoot in the go-kart racing tournament that bears the name of the latter, Sparx didn't want to be left behind and so decided to act as the protective shield of Spyro, Hunter and, weirdly enough, Gnasty Gnorc; as well as every other racer in the Spyro Track since he felt it was his duty to act as the protective mask of everyone else, even if he isn't really a mask.
