Pantheon / Gaming Styles

Go To

This is a gaming lounge where both ascended deities and those in the mortal world can come in and try out various kinds of games. Most Let's Plays are held here, as are reviews of different games.

There is no right or wrong way to play a game here, so it's entirely possible for someone to completely screw over the other players whenever they're engaged in some sort of task. Nevertheless, things are mostly under control in this house (though certain games have been reported to have caused increased hostility between players whenever a playthrough of them is in progress).

    Rampage Wrecking Crew 
George, Lizzie and Ralph, Divine Avatars of Player Cruelty (The Wrecking Crew)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rampage_1.png
From left to right: Ralph, George, Lizzie
  • Intermediate Deities
  • Symbol: A broken SCUM Labs logo
  • Theme Song: This
  • Alignment: CHAOTIC (with unpredictable changes)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Monsters, Science, DESTRUCTION
  • Heralds: The other 37 SCUM Labs monsters & their movie counterparts.
  • Allies: None. The trio are far too chaotic for anyone to be friends with.
  • Enemies: Everyone else, with special emphasis on evil-aligned deities related to Mega Corps and Mad Scientists, the Postal Dude (for stealing one of his tropes)
  • Rivals: King Kong (for George), Godzilla (for Lizzie), all Kaiju, all ascended Titans, Kumbhakarna, the Colossi
  • Odd Friendship: Toxie, Wreck-It Ralph, Steve Irwin, Dwayne Johnson, The Draconians
  • The day the Wrecking Crew ascended was the only day the Welcoming Committee wasn't even allowed near the Gates for fear of getting eaten. The trio wasted no time in making their presence in the House of Gaming where they destroyed the Postal Dude's Video Game Cruelty Potential digs to make it their home. Dude tried to fight them as best as he can and ended up being George's snack for his trouble. Once brought back to life in the House of Life & Death, he learned the Judge revoked his old temple leaving him with his other place at the Hall of Naming Convention. Dude swore he'll regain his old home back from the creatures whatever the cost.
  • Through the nature of the Pantheon, the trio has lost most of their balancing abilities and have become adept in various different ways. George, by nature of his primate body, is far more athletic and acrobatic, able to climb with the quickest of ease in comparison to the other two. He has also kept his devastating ape stomp which damages anything near him and completely annihilates any strcuture if it's underneath him. Lizzie has gotten speedier but lost some of her natural strength but gains the ability to breathe fire in projectiles or a single long stream. Ralph, being old even when still human, still is slow in movement and climbing, but is far stronger and his claws are even harder and sharper than before. And then there's his howl, which he weaponized to great effect.
  • Due to their destructive nature, many GUAD acolytes attempted to sway the trio to their side, only to be all devoured. If there is one thing the monsters can agree on, despite having absolutely no loyalty to anyone or each other, is for someone to force them to do their bidding. Thus, Lucifer was able to convince them to join the GUAC instead as he allowed them to do whatever they wanted and that suits the trio well. Still, the Morningstar is now the target of complaints from those who have their followers eaten or their temples ravaged by the three's chaos.
  • Several measures have been taken whenever the Monsters decided to go on, you guessed it, a rampage. The Houses most hit whenever the trio are let loose are Commerce (due to the abundance of tall buildings which they enjoy destroying), Food (where they get their fill on nonhuman meals...by usually destroying certain temples related to their current appetite), Profession (also known for its tall buildings), Science (for reasons explained below), and War (where they enjoy crushing and destroying all types of military hardware the local deities there send their way). Lucky for the Pantheon, construction on whatever they destroy is quickly fixed...until the next time it gets destroyed, that is.
  • The most frequent targets of the Trio's collective wrath are all evil Mega-Corp and Mad Scientist deities as it was through the machinations of their world's SCUM Labs that they ended up the way they are. As such, the Houses of Commerce and Science are the most hit.
  • Even though they don't have any friends as they see everyone else as either potential meals or enemies, they refrain from harming Toxie. The fact that the Toxic Avenger was once a regular human who underwent radioactive mutation just as they did could be the reason. While his presence may not dissuade them from wreaking havoc, they enjoy the few moments Toxie joins up with them (as best as he can) to rampage across mutual enemies.
  • As Wreck-It Ralph can attest, the Rampage Wrecking Crew are known as veterans of Bad-Anon and they are quite punctual when it comes to their meetings, which is one of the few times the Pantheon can relax from their destruction. Strangely enough, it's only whenever they enter Bad-Anon HQ that they surprisingly act in a civilized manner and to the shock of everyone present, speak in perfect language. It's only once they leave that they revert to their monstrous destructive ways. Some chalk it up to them enjoying their roles as playable bad guy protagonists too much.
  • Whenever they aren't pigging out on food and humans or destroying everything in their path, they usually can be found fighting the other giant deities within the Pantheon. All three like to take turns fighting the Draconian Beasts of New Urth. George finds a bitter rival and Worthy Opponent in King Kong, whereas Lizzie gets her fill fighting the King of Monsters himself. Ralph, due to the lack of any other giant werewolf around, opts to just brawl with whoever else can satisfy his inner beast. That role usually goes to any Kaiju, Titan Shifter or the Colossi.
    • It was one particular day when the Monsters stormed the House of Food to get their usual chow that they intruded upon several cooks that were delivering Kumbhakarna's breakfast to the awakened Sleeping Giant. Without a care, they immediately ate up everything (including the cooks) which made the rakshasa furious and went on the attack. Even with their combined power and superior numbers, the Crew found Kumbha an opponent that wouldn't go down easily. When the smoke finally settled, the free-for-all ended in a draw with the Trio knocked unconscious and the Giant snoring away in his sleep.
  • When asked during a Bad-Anon meeting what they thought about the film adaptation of their series, George and Lizzie (mostly her) didn't like how they were changed from mutated humans to mutated real animals but understood why their film counterparts were so different as they themselves are Expies of Kong & Godzilla to avoid lawsuits, and Ralph had mixed reactions over being a quadruped animal but earning spikes and a flying ability in return. They all eventually agreed to not mess with Dwayne Johnson as courtesy (he even grew up a fan of their arcade) and being a badass.
    • However, George has been seen Flipping the Bird more often now, which serves to taunt his fellow monsters and those who attack them, whenever they go on their rampages. Many wish that part of his film counterpart didn't rub off on him.

    Roahm Mythril 
Roahm Mythril, God of Challenging Oneself and Unlocking Everything (ArcadeDragon, Durgon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/RoahmMythrilButton-TVTropes_2478.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Mahjong Green Dragon symbol.
  • Theme: "Samurai Scanners"
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Issuing Challenges to Oneself, Getting Everything he Possibly Can, viewing this Wiki, Being a Different Dragon, Liking Cuteness, Liking Shineys Even More, Never Giving Up on Even the Most Grueling of Sidequests and Challenges
  • Domains: Scalykind, Magic
  • Allies: Mega Man, Lan Hikari, Bahamut, Spyro the Dragon, the Pikmin, Shovel Knight, Link, Harry Mason, James Sunderland, Heather Mason, Remilia Scarlet, Sakuya Izayoi, Alexandra Roivas, Soma Cruz, Pikachu, Cuphead
  • Enemies: Quick Man (though one-sided), HughesNet, Pipis and other small fast enemies
  • Opposes: Bright Man
  • Uneasy Relationship With: Tommy Wiseau
  • High Priests: Pink Kitty Rose, Jirard Khali (for 100% Completion trope)
  • No matter the challenge, no matter how hard it is, Roahm will make sure he completes it 100 percent. Nothing will stop him.
  • He has a strange friendship with both The Runaway Guys and Mat and Pat as the two groups are Let's Players just like he is, but their dynamic when it comes to completing challenges aren't to his level. Still, he joins the groups for some friendly competitions.
  • No, he will not play Mega Man X. Even if it would put all of his skills to the test.
    • When questioned by X himself on the topic, Roahm told him that it wasn't because he hated the series, but because he doesn't really enjoy it. X accepted his explanation and let him be after that.
  • His temple has an odd habit of spontaneously vanishing on occasion, typically when it's cloudy. Roahm's only comment on this is "HughesNet." The same thing happens from time to time when Altaria roosts close by.
  • He is forbidden from entering the Vault, due to his habit of hoarding "shinys."
    • Similarly, it goes against his nature to avoid anything colorful and shiny thrown at him. He states this as the reason for not taking part in spellcard duels, much to the bemusement of his Gensokyo-based allies.
  • Has an uneasy relationship with Tommy Wiseau. On one hand, The Room has always been a great source of amusement for him. On the other, Roahm regrets selecting Tommy as his travel agent for his 2012 Halloween vacation after he ended up in South Ashfield.
  • That said, his primary travel agent is Alessa Gillespie. Heather Mason, who used to be Alessa, doesn't get how that is possible but is alright with not giving it a lot of thought.
  • Shuddered and resolved to stay as far away from Quick Man's temple as possible after discovering that the Robot Master had ascended. Quick Man for his part is actually not as much of an enemy of Roahm as one would think, actively taking pride in the 10/10 difficulty rating he received.
  • It was discovered during an encounter with his High Priestess that Roahm is capable of holding his own in combat when pressed, using attacks that recall some of his gaming experiences. As he is a friendly dragon by nature, though, he goes out of his way to avoid fights in general and keeps away from all of the Pantheon's major factions. Gaming is much more preferable to him.
  • Has several agents working for him. One of them is Pikachu, referred to as "Agent #25", who (somehow) drives his car. The other is a being called "Deckert", whose presence is more felt than seen by way of keeping Roahm focused on his gameplay. Both of them were instrumental in his escape from South Ashfield.
  • As he loves cold environments more than his temple's warmer one, Roahm occasionally visits the Ice & Cold house for a quick recharge.

    The Wither 
The Wither, The Ultimate Destroyer of Crafts
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/minecraftwither_9189.jpg
  • Intermediate God (Greater God if fused with a Command Block to turn it into a Wither Storm)
  • Symbol: Three black skulls
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Destruction of Everything Built And Living, Stuff Blowing Up, Eldritch Abomination, Airborne Mook, The Juggernaut, Omnicidal Maniac
  • Domains: Creatures, Destructions, Undead
  • Followers: Anyone who wishes to wreak havoc in online games For the Evulz
  • "Allies": Undead gods, Ghetsis
  • Enemies: Almost every god what is alive (special mention to Steve?) especially House of Craft.
  • One day, a non-documented god decided to create a monster using a material called Soul Sand and three black skulls. When the thing was finished, an explosion happened, and from the smoke, The Wither emerged, starting to destroy everything on its path, creating massive amounts of chaos in the Pantheon. Where the Wither was eventually slain, it had managed to gain godhood, causing it to not quite die.
  • The Wither can fire skulls what not only inflict a status called Wither, what will slowly drain target's health, but can destroy almost anything. Because of that, the Wither's temple is built out of Bedrock, a material which not even it can break.
  • Besides how destructive The Wither is, there is one thing it doesn't target: other undead creatures. Of course, attacking the Wither is not a good idea even if you are undead, because it will target you if that happens.
  • For surprise for many gods, the Wither doesn't attack Ghetsis, possibly due of him having the Pokémon Hydreigon, a three-headed dragon who is almost as destructive as the Wither.
  • Won against Deviljho once by destroying everything it could use as food in order to cause Deviljho to get exhausted for not having enough energy to fight back.
  • Was made one of the Elite Mooks of the Lich's Army of the Dead.

    Yami Yugi 
The Other Yugi, God of Absurdly High-Stakes Games (Dark Yugi, Yami, Yami Yugi, Other Me, Pharaoh, Nameless Pharaoh, Atem)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yami_yugi_render.png
Spoiler for the last arc of the series 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Millenium Puzzle; alternative the back of a Duel Monsters card
  • Theme Song: "Passionate Duelist"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, formerly Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Character Development, Anti Heroes, Dark Is Not Evil, Sexier Alter Egos (as well as buffer and taller in the anime), Superpowered (Not Quite) Evil Sides With Even More Ridiculous Hair, former inflicter of Disproportionate Retributions before Taking a Level in Kindness (due to Yugi's influence), Amnesiac Heroes, willingly letting his soul be sealed in a puzzle for 3000 years, being the King of Games (Trope Namer), as in being good at all games (not just card games)
  • Domains: Games, Magic, Transformation, Craft, Inquisition.
  • Followers: Nate Mitotsudaira, Giorgio Tsoukalos, the Signers, Chrono Shindou, Usogui
  • Herald: Yusaku Fujiki
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Seto Kaiba, Ash Ketchum
  • Enemies: Dark Marik, The Spirit of the Ring, Zorc Necrophades, Eliphas, Vector, Ramses II, Sora Shiun'in, En Sabar Nu / Apocalypse, Nobuyuki Sugou
  • Opposes: Keith Howard, Pegasus J. Crawford, Noah Kaiba
  • Pities: Takuma "Sartorius" Saiou
  • Complicated Relationship with: The Egyptian pantheon
  • Gained his title not only due to his habit of saving the world by playing a children's card game, but also because of those times he used his powers to impart justice by playing games (known as "Shadow Games"), in which the loser received a (often magic, sometimes lethal, always poetic) punishment, with him often wagering his life. Several opponents ended up burnt alive or stuck in an endless insanity-inducing illusion, but he doesn't like to talk about that.
  • Was very happy to meet Yugi again. In the Pantheon, they're now allowed to exist separately, so any issues regarding Yugi's independence are no longer a concern, especially since Yugi has already proved he surpassed Atem in their Ceremonial Duel.
  • Despite of his title, card games by themselves aren't actually really Serious Business for him, unless they're somehow attached to plot or used to hurt others. Seto Kaiba, on the other hand...
    • Speaking of, he has received numerous calls to his House from Kaiba asking to arrange a duel. Yami Yugi has barely had any time to meet his old friends again, so he really wishes Kaiba to stop calling. Of course, he does feel glad to see him in the Pantheon (though he's probably the only one from his world who actually does, aside from maybe Yugi), and even more so as Kaiba is the reincarnation of his cousin and friend, Priest Seto. He is willing to duel him again, just... not right now.
    • After seeing just how far Kaiba was willing to go to be able to duel him again, he finally acquiesced to his requests. In a long, arduous battle in which ancient powers entered a new era and both duelists were brought to the end of their ropes, the Pharaoh managed to once again pull the win against all odds. Kaiba's been temporarily content with the match ( even if he's not happy about the result), but Yami knows it won't be long before he'll be back.
  • Spends a lot of his free time in the House of Gaming, not playing card games, but looking for new games to play (he's actually really good at many games; he isn't called the King of Games for nothing, after all). Often seen with his friends, but especially Yugi. He'd go alone more often, but he isn't quite used to go out casually by himself (in his day and age, at least), and he enjoys the company anyway.
  • Just like in his world, Yugi's allies are his allies:
    • Was glad to meet Judai and Yusei again, and is willing to arrange another duel with the two after he's rested enough, and this time it will be just for fun.
    • Got along really well with the friends of Judai and Yusei. He's also both amazed and amused by the similarities between Sho and Yugi, and encourages both the Duel Academy student and Yuma to keep evolving as duelists. He is saddened to see the 5Ds crew broke up and gone their separate ways, he is happy that, like Yugi, the experience has changed them to become better people.
    • Also gets along really well with Shark, who reminds him a bit of Jounouchi.
    • Doesn't particularly like spending time with Yuma due to the latter's immaturity but tolerate out of respect for Yugi and the fact that Yuma's friendship with Astral reminds him of his friendship with Yugi.
    • Doesn't approve of Sora Shiun'in's bigotry, which he finds completely unreasonable.
    • Wasn't as forgiving as Yugi is when concerning their former enemy Keith, Pegasus and Noah because both of them had hurt people he cared about, something he would have easily punished them for if not for Yugi's presence. The two of them are on the same page concerning Sartorius, Keith Howard, Eliphas and Vector, however.
    • Doesn't particularly like spending time with Aichi Sendou because of his Failure Hero tendency, which Yami hates to be reminded of. However, he tolerate him because of the two's friendship with Yugi and the fact that he can sympathized being brainwashed.
    • Doesn't know what to make of Gaim but gets along with him well enough for his similarity of Yugi.
  • Feels uneasy around thieves and genocide victims, due to having learned about the massacre in Kul Elna, a village of thieves, from which 99 people were sacrificed by one of his priests for the creation of the Millennium Items. Even though he wasn't actually responsible for the incident (it happened when he was still an infant, and it was done by his uncle behind his father's back), he still feels like he needs to make amends. He also advises against touching the Millennium Items now, due to their origin.
  • He's also still trying to atone for his actions back from when he had just awoken from the Millennium Puzzle. He made a conscious effort long ago to stop dealing his (often excessive, if somewhat deserved) punishments against evil-doers, and even has gone as far as to call out hurting people for fun, so he really wouldn't like that to be thrown in his face. Despite drastically toning down his Ax-Crazy and Knight Templar tendencies, though, he's still retained his dark sense of humor.
  • Has found a kindred spirit in Midna because both of them are non-evil dark-inspired ruler.
  • Despises Ramsay with a passion due to their difference viewpoint on slavery, especially after Yami spent a lot of time in the modern world. Yami does respect Anakarkis for his willingness to fight for his people, something Yami had done in his past life.
    • Because of their shared hatred for Ramses, he developed a bond with Moses.
    • This hatred however, is nothing comparing to Apoclypse for actively waging war against humanity, especially ancient Egyptians, that eerily reminds him of his old enemy Zorc.
  • Is the only person that can access and use the Egyptian God Cards. All good-aligned deities from the YGO universe are working hard to keep it that way...especially after what happened when they were let loose during "Project: Alternate!Gentaro", causing destruction and the death of gods in their wake.
    • And even before then he was absolutely mortified to what he (and Yugi) did to the Cutie Mark Crusaders in stealing their souls and sending them to Limbo. The fillies have forgiven him though, but the events of "Tarot Crusaders" revealed that the actions weigh heavily on his shoulders to the point that he was easily manipulated by someone wielding Saika to do some unsavory dirty work.
  • Formed a friendship with Nabu, as they were (are, in Nabu's case) both spirits of Ancient Egyptians that wield magical powers who possessed a host using a golden artifact. Nabu the Wise used to serve as an advisor to the Pharaohs of his world when he was mortal, and now takes up the role again for Yami as Doctor Fate. They are now currently doing research to determine if there is a potential link between the Helmet of Nabu and the Millenium Items.
  • Is glad to see Dark Magician Girl again because he can be close to his friend from the past life Mana. Whether or not they're a couple remains to be seen.
  • While Yami and Yugi were respected by Harth Stonebrew for influencing card games as we know it, the Innkeeper denies them entry into his place because he fears that their insane luck and skill would make the atmosphere boring.
  • Has a complicated relationship with ascended ancient Egyptian gods in the Pantheon. While he still respects them, his faith and fear for them isn't as strong as he was before considering the fact that Yami has faced and defeated various dark forces and command some Egyptian gods as Duel Monsters. Not to mention that the name Anubis reminded him of a man who wielded something known as the Pyramid of Light...
  • Doesn't like Nobuyuki Sugou because he reminds Yami of his more sadistic enemies and Yami himself during the early time released from the Puzzle.

Lesser Gods

    Cucco(s) 
Cuccos, God of Video Game Cruelty Punishment (Cucco's Revenge Squad)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cucco.png
  • Lesser God(s)
  • Symbol: The plain white chicken
  • Alignment: True Neutral (unless provoked)
  • Portfolio: "Fantasy" Deadly Chicken, Powerful for their size, Attacks when provoked, Does Not like being attacked
  • Domains: Cruelty, Provoked, Punishment
  • Followers: Pigs
  • Allies: Foghorn Leghorn, Billy Hatcher, The Farmer, Rolf, The Villager
  • Enemies: The Dwarves, Jack Ryan, Claude, Tommy Vercetti, Carl Johnson, Niko Bellic, Luis Fernando Lopez, Huang Lee, Michael De Santa, Trevor Phillips and Franklin Clinton, Postal Dude
  • Opposes: Link, Mario
  • Pities: Yoshi
  • The Cuccos are ascended as a reminder that all Video Game Cruelty Potential is punishable. At first, these Cuccos mind their own business. But once they are provoked by being abused, they'll retaliate with a swarm of Cuccos coming out of nowhere and attack their aggressors. As the result, they are feared by many deities who thought these chickens are harmless.
  • These birds despise Link as he would be the one who always provoke them. Link has since been cautious to not invoke the wrath of the cocks.
  • Representing Video Game Cruelty Punishment, they detest those who take Video Game Cruelty Potential to its' limits, viewing them as no different than Link. It especially despises the Postal Dude since he is the representing deity of Video Game Cruelty Potential and thus his anti-thesis.
  • Foghorn found the Cuccos to be adorable little chicks and is pleased that the cuccos are willing to defend themselves when Link pointlessly attack them.
  • Billy has helped hatch some of the Cucco's eggs, in which the birds were (in a way) appreciative. Though Billy doesn't like their furious retaliation considering that chicken shouldn't be violent.
  • The representing Cucco is a Giant Cucco that leads the cucco in the Pantheon. Members include many white cuccos, some rare gold cuccos, and a special Cucco like the Pocket Cucco and Cojiro.
  • Cuccos aren't just for violating anyone that attacks them, they can also be used to gliding when being grabbed and fly over obstacles. It is also a popular sport as seen with Falbi's Flight by Fowl.
  • The Dwarves were far too dumb to heed the warning of the cuccos and tried to capture and eat the chickens. Many dwarves died as a result of the swarm clawing their flesh and pecking their eyes out.
  • Some of the Cuccos were founded in various arenas in the Fourth Smash Bros. Tournament. Suffice to say, some of the fighters hurt these birds and the horde begin pecking at their aggressors. Now, many of them could understand how Link felt when he thought hurting the Cuccos was a good idea.
  • It pities Yoshi for the several time that Mario would jump out of the mount to give an extra height while sacrificing him to the bottomless pit. The Cucco sometimes attack Mario at random and without warning.
  • Lana has the possibility of summoning Cuccos and even the giant versions of them through her Summoning Gate, among other monsters. It's probably one of the few people that the Cuccos like.
  • Cuccos show some respect to farmers since they raise chicken with care.
  • There are only four ways to kill these cuccos, sprinkling magic powder on them, blasting them with the magic rod, throwing them into the ocean, or throwing them into the volcano. They are not amused by such abuse.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yu_gi_oh__duel_monsters_muto_yugi__render__by_raidengtx_dbid4u2_fullview.png
  • Lesser God (Intermediate God when his Yami form takes over; Great God with all of the Egyptian God Cards)
  • Symbol: The Millennium Puzzle
  • Theme Music: "Warriors" for the Japanese version or "It's Time to Duel!" for the English version.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Card Duelists, Adorkables, Being the King of Games (Namer of the Trope), Nice Guys, Being Older Than They Look, Heroes, Anime Hair Colors with Improbable Hair Styles, Good Guy Hair, Expressive Hair, The Necessity of Blue Hair
  • Domains: Games, Hair, Friendship
  • Followers: Nate Mitotsudaira, Giorgio Tsoukalos, the Signers, Chrono Shindou
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Seto Kaiba, Ash Ketchum, Shobu Kirifuda
  • Enemies: Dark Marik, The Spirit of the Ring, Zorc Necrophades, Eliphas, Vector, Number 96: Black Mist
  • Conflicting Opinion: Pegasus J. Crawford, Noah Kaiba
  • Pities: Keith Howard, Saiou "Sartorius" Takuma, Dartz
  • Admires: Bruce Lee
  • Yugi has challenged Ash Ketchum to a children's card game for his title and portfolios; the duel is still going on. The rest of the Pantheon breathes a sigh of relief at keeping these two busy.
  • Plenty of gods and goddesses envy Yurika for her hair, but no one really wants the abstract explosion-shape that is Yugi's hair. Sigh.
  • Has watched Dragon Ball Z Kai Abridged and wondered how many subscribers the show has gotten.
  • As his wish on the Millennium Puzzle was about finding friends, he is grateful to have lots of friends when he came to the Pantheon. However, when word of "Project: Alternate Gentaro" surfaced, Yugi knew he had to get involved with it somehow. Too bad that the only way that happened was by Alternate!Gentaro brainwashing him, not unlike the time Yami became corrupted by the Orichalcos....
    • And then he was absolutely mortified for what he did to the Cutie Mark Crusaders in the "Muse Hysteria" chapter of "Project: Alternate!Gentaro". Sending the Crusaders into Limbo and then he set a Zombie Apocalypse upon the Pantheon traumatized the poor boy for months. As of the "Tarot Crusaders" incident, many gods still haven't forgiven him for the incident, although the Crusaders have honestly forgiven him.
      • And it gets worse: sending the Crusaders to Limbo was the worst thing that he could've done—the darkness within Limbo became so interested in why someone would send three ponies into its landscape that it escaped its confines in order to see them again, unleashing chaos in its wake, making Queen Mystica try to send the Crusaders back into Limbo to return it home and having to learn that he was carrying the vital component to stop its madness—an All-Star Core/Keystone of Limbo—that could've only been taken out under dire circumstances like a threat to his/his friends' lives after being tricked by Gentaro's shadow (long story) and then realizing he was suckered by the real Gentaro who didn't show qualms if Yugi did die (since they were gods) but was more focused on stopping the mess Yugi caused in the first place. He was a nervous wreck after learning what happened.
  • Despite the fact that Bandit Keith had planned and failed to kidnap him to force him into a duel (much like his friend Jounouchi was once), he can't help but feel sorry for him after everything that has happened to him. Wonders about the possibility of redeeming Keith somehow. Yuma is the only one who has supported him so far, though.
  • Spends most of the time in the House of Gaming. While he doesn't duel as much as he used to, he really likes finding new games to play with his friends. Especially as those are not usually connected to cults, magic, the destiny of the world, or other not-exactly-"fun" stuff.
  • Really sympathizes with Sho Marufuji/Syrus Truesdale (who was totally starry-eyed upon meeting him), as Yugi also suffers from the plight of being shorter and Older Than He Looks. He has consoled him by telling him that true strength comes from within... And that eventually he could get much more buff and adult looking, anyway, just like with Yugi himself.
  • Was very happy when seeing Judai and Yusei again, especially after they saved all realities from Paradox. Yugi has finally managed to meet the 5Ds crew and, while initially sad that all of them had broke up and gone separate ways, he's glad that they've been there for each other and grow to become better people. He is, however, creeped out by Yubel's presence after hearing her backstory.
  • Isn't actually very comfortable with the attention he gets from other duelists. He was never really the showy-kind of guy. Despite managing to save the day several times along with the Other Yugi and beat Atem himself in the Ceremonial Duel, he's still kind of shy, and he's not really one to brag, either.
  • Was really happy upon meeting Yami Yugi again.
  • Unlike Yami Yugi, he actually likes spending time with Yuma due to their shared love for game and both being child-like at heart. Yuma's friendship with Astral also reminds him of his friendship with Yami Yugi.
  • He once wandered to the House of Combat to watch Bruce Lee fight (few people know, but he's a big fan).
  • Wasn't very pleased when seeing his former foes Pegasus and Noah ascended. While he did mend fences with Pegasus during their time as mortal, Yugi still doesn't trust both of them.
    • The same can be said for Sartorius. But Yugi does pity him for being brainwashed by the Light of Destruction. He absolutely despises Eliphas and Vector though.
  • Has a kinship with Kent Nelson, the current host of Doctor Fate, as they can both understand being the host of an Ancient Egyptian spirit, although the bond between Kent and Nabu is not nearly as strong as that of Yugi and Yami.
    • He's the one that told them about Mario and Cappy, who he of course knows of, but has no real special relationship to yet.
  • Feels very sorry for Aichi Sendou because of his Failure Hero status and is trying to improve his record.
  • Gets along very well with Kamen Rider Gaim because of both their idealistic nature.
  • Has recently revealed aspirations in becoming a game designer himself, and is currently working on developing his own game, which he's thinking of calling "Spherium". He's still working out the mechanics, but it looks quite promising.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_chosen_undead_4597.png The Chosen Undead
  • Demigods, though with enough persistence and skill they can defeat even Greater Gods and possibly Overdeities.
  • Symbol: The Darksign mainly, but the covenents they have joined also count too.
  • Theme Song: You Died! or Lordvessel (For The Chosen Undead), Fires Far (For The Bearer of the Curse), Soul of Cinder (Together)
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Both of them: Undeath, Being Very Different From "Normal" Undead, Brutal Challenges and Rising to Them, Possible Cruel Opportunists, Unwillingness to Remove Armor
  • Domains: Undeath, Combat, Tenacity, Patience
  • Followers: Gamers who desire a challenge, Kingseeker Frampt, Darkstalker Kaathe,The Emerald Herald, And various other undead from their world.
  • Allies: Solaire of Astora, The Hunter, The Ashen One, Alphonse Elric, The Guy, Grenth, Undyne
  • Enemies: Shadow Fiend
  • High Priest: The Demon Slayer
  • Used to have a different temple, but Grenth proved to be a better representative of it. The Chosen Undead and the Bearer of the Curse holds no bad ill toward Grenth however, and they received a different temple in the House of Gaming.
  • The Chosen Undead ascended after slaying Manus, Father of the Abyss. The Bearer of The Curse ascended after sitting upon the Throne of Want.
  • Both of them refuse to remove their armor, making it impossible to tell if they are male or female. A few curious members of the House of Knowledge tried to find out by looking into their pasts, only to find that no two accounts matched up.
  • The Chosen Undead has been occasionally spotted offering humanity to a bonfire in the center of their temple. This is because beneath the temple there's a room containing Quelaag's Sister.
  • Once, one of their followers decided to charge through the pantheon armed with nothing but a pair of bows and a pair of underwear. While most of the other gods were confused or disturbed, a good deal of them thought it was hilarious.
  • The Chosen Undead was overjoyed to learn that Sif and Artorias had become proper members of the Pantheon and has expressed interest in a proper duel with the Abysswalker.
  • One of the fastest ways to piss off The Chosen Undead is by saying "WOOOOOOOOOW!", "OH, COME ON!", "PFFFFT!", making an annoying laugh or clapping your hands every time they die. Apparently it reminds them of a certain mortal who once played their game.
    • On that note, anyone telling The Chosen Undead or The Bearer of the Curse that their games are "too hard" or "unfair" are met with a stony stare and a firm shout of "GET GOOD."
  • Neither was pleased to find out Manus had ascended. The Chosen Undead, keeper of half of the monster's precious amulet, remains alert. Whether to destroy the Father of the Abyss... or to succeed him. The Bearer of the Curse is busy gearing up as well, worried about the horror's Soul Fragments.
  • To the shock and awe of his equal, Lord Gwyn, and every other god who's known the sting of the Curse of Undeath, the Bearer of the Curse found a cure in the three lost crowns of the fallen kingdoms, which, though not making him immortal, makes him immune to hollowing on death. He now seeks to find a way to permanently end the curse forever, now that he has transcended the cycle that has held his world for so long.
  • Both are keeping a sharp eye on The Hunter, a human from a different but similar world who's embarked on a journey not unlike theirs. Jury's still out on whether or not they'll welcome him in and make the position a trinity, presumably it depends on if he lives to the end of the adventure.
  • Speaking of candidate, both deities were keeping one last position for The Ashen One. In the end, though, the Ashen One instead ascended to a different position in the House of Profession.
  • Their High Priest/ess, The Demon Slayer, is personally distrustful with Demons of any kind, much to the good demons' annoyance. Though, since the Demon Slayer is the one who actually started the combat style in the first place, many of the demon gods and goddesses are incredibly wary of them. Especially when his/her deities along with The Hunter are around.
  • Much like the Hunter, even the most powerful members of the pantheon tend to give them a very wide berth, out of either fear or respect for their ability to topple enemies far beyond their own powers.
  • If a situation ever becomes bleak enough that even they cannot overcome it, they have learned through Gwyn that they can combine their souls together with Gwyn inside the First Flame to become the "Soul of Cinder", if they chose to to link the Flame all those years ago.

    Oboromaru 
Oboromaru, God of the Pacifist Run (Oboro)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oboromaru.png
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: An Invisibility Cloak active, so you would think that he didn't have any symbols.
  • Theme Song: Killing Field
  • Alignment: Formerly Lawful Neutral, now Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Ninja Fighting And Ninjutsu, Spiky Purple Hair, Stealth Expert, Glass Cannon, The Option To Complete Missions Without Killing Men Unnecessarily, Beating Down The God of Hatred, Believer of The Power of Trust
  • Domains: Gaming, Stealth, Missions, Ninja
  • High Priestess: Dove
  • Allies: Ryu Hayabusa, Riki, Himura Kenshin, Miyamoto Musashi, Tokugawa Ieyasu, Hattori Hanzo, Solid Snake, Genji Shimada, Pacifist!Iji Kataiser (previous holder), the Human Child
  • Enemies: Odio, Oda Nobunaga, Liquid Snake, Toyotomi Hideyoshi
  • Respected by: the Marked Ninja
  • Oboromaru was but a normal, typical ninja in service of the Enma clan. On his mission to rescue a certain Ryoma Sakamoto from a diabolical warlord, he's given the choice to use whatever ways to fulfill his mission, including killing everyone and leaving no survivors. He had thought that killing others would be fine if it's for a mission, but on meeting Ryoma, he's getting second thoughts so he tried not to kill anyone in his run. This impressed not only Ryoma, who gave him a special sword, but also the Pantheon that it allowed him to rise after another multi-dimensional battle against a certain Demon King.
  • From that point on, seeing on how much he benefited from not killing anyone in a mission, Oboromaru is the deity who rewards those who do their missions without killing anyone.
  • Despite having purple neon hair, Oboromaru actually follows the tenets of a ninja to never be seen, impressing even the Marked Ninja (that only gave his congratulations by a letter with no name) and Genji. Oboromaru was unimpressed with how Genji massacred the Shimada clan, but sympathized with why he did it. At least the Enma clan didn't send his family member to kill and mutilate him! Besides, he used to fight with a robo-ninja and at least Genji isn't afraid of mice.
    • And speaking of that robo-ninja, another O-Robo was gifted to him to take his place while Oboromaru is off doing other things.
  • He lived around the Bakumatsu era, and thus made great camaraderie with those originating from there, but especially Himura Kenshin, as they share the 'no-killing' policy. As stated, just because Oboromaru prefers not to kill doesn't mean he should be treated as a pushover.
  • That Demon King he fought was Odio, and Oboromaru was quite surprised that he's in the Pantheon at the form before he defeated it the first time, full of misanthropy. Sure, he might not have his original allies, but he trusts that he won't be alone even this time.
  • Several Sengoku-era deities came to his notice, he respected Tokugawa Ieyasu for being quite similar to the Sakamoto Ryoma that he met, he opposed Toyotomi Hideyoshi for being a ruthless warlord, but in the same time, could respect his zeal and vision, so it was a bit complicated. At least, Oda Nobunaga was simpler, he's no different than Ode Iou, so this is one guy he could attempt to assassinate any day (though he proved to be way too powerful so he has to plan it right). Just the more demonic version, though. The normal Nobunaga would require further thoughts, but unless there's an extreme order, Oboromaru really prefers to not get in his way.
    • He's also quite surprised to see Miyamoto Musashi, in flesh and blood, and actually being a normal, decent guy (if a bit impulsive), since the last time he met him, he was a haunted ghost in service of Ode Iou. Even Musashi was shocked about that, and thanked Oboromaru for putting that version of him to rest.
  • As the former holder of his title, Pacifist!Iji sent her regards to Oboromaru, claiming that he's a more deserving holder of the title than she ever was. Sure, he's slain ghosts and his O-Robo exploded to kill three guards he wouldn't have been able to bypass otherwise, but her (flimsy) excuse was mainly the use of a reflector weapon, as well as tanking explosions, dropping objects from way above, getting two opposing sides to attack each other, and not counting machines as sentient. It's one of the reasons why she moved (that, and her other aspect ascended).
    • As a fellow embarker of a Pacifist Run, the Human Child approves of his actions as well.

    The Runaway Guys 
Chuggaaconroy, ProtonJon and NintendoCapriSun, Gods of Let's Play (Emile-Chuggaaconroy, Jon-ProtonJon, Tim-NintendoCapriSun, The Runaway Guys)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trg_logo_7435.png
  • Demigods (Their powers of video games combined let them reach Intermediate God status)
  • Symbol: The Runaway Guys Symbol
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good/Chaotic Neutral (Chaotic Neutral according to Jon)
  • Portfolio: Let's Play, Large Ham, Power Trio, Dream Team, being incredibly incredibly loud, not giving up on difficult levels, exceptionally good gamers...sometimes, epic hilarity, weaponising karma, explaining mechanics and trivia in their works.
  • Domains: Fun, Hilarity, Video Games
  • Progenitor: Unknown. Though Slowbeef is one of the few confirmed ones, one can still go 'way back''
  • Followers: Several, with PewDiePie as the most prominent of them.
  • Allies: Gods of games they have let's played (which includes Mario and Amaterasu, Yoshi, Link, Kirby, Sackboy), Brainscratch Commentaries, Roahm Mythril
    • Fanboying: The Xenoblade Chronicle gods, Miror B. (Chuggaaconroy only)
    • As far as non-ascended is concerned, Jon's moderators, and various L Pers they have associated themselves with.
  • Alone, they were powerless. But when they teamed up together, their power was so great that they ascended into the Pantheon.
    • That said, the three also have their own rooms in their Temple for their own projects. NintendoCapriSun has the most games in his pocket (many of them falling under Self-Imposed Challenge), Chuggaaconroy is the most prolific and ProtonJon, the originator of the three, and his Super Mario mods. Visitors are allowed to look around and get advice on how to advance the games, or have a good laugh at what goes on.
  • Each of these three are specialized in different areas. Chuggaaconroy is said to be Born Lucky, ProtonJon is said to be the one that runs away the most, and NintendoCapriSun is said to be exceptionally well with non-joystick based games.
  • The history of how Let's Plays even began is faded from history, but one follower has attempted to piece it all together. And it turns out that Let's Plays as we know them today are Older Than They Think, going all the way back to companies releasing video strategy guides on VHS, to "how-to-win-at-video-games" books, to chess guides'.
  • The volume that these three generate can sometimes match with ones of Gentaro/Kamen Rider Fourze, BRIAN BLESSED, and Kamina. It is said that the heavens would crumble if their voices merged.
    • If anyone hears someone scream "GAAAAMEEEE!!!", they had just heard ProtonJon being screwed over by Mario Party… multiple, multiple times.
  • They once held a special tournament with other LPers. Chuggaa once mentioned that Diabetus should be considered the God of Let's Play, but ProtonJon suggested against that. Diabetus even suggested that while he created the concept of Let's Play, the Runaway Guys deserved to be the symbol for all of them.
  • Chuggaconroy's luck is so great, that if he should ever be reborn as Pokémon Trainer, all of the Olympus Mons (particularly Arceus) had better pray that he's not wielding a Pokéball. Chances are he's gonna capture them in it. He wasn't Born Lucky for nothing. His attempts in Pokémon capturing include capturing both Groudon and Latias in Nest Balls (both of them close to full health), Kyogre in a Net Ball and Ho-Oh in a Pokéball. The House of Knowledge calculated that the chances to capture them were slim to none. And then that escalated when he caught Dialga with a Luxury Ball and both Giratina and Palkia with HEAL BALLS. At this point, gods are curious as to how Chuggaa will fare with Arceus. It turns out that Arceus ran away from Chuggaa in the end.
    • ProtonJon is considered The Mentor for both Chuggaa and NintendoCapriSun as they were both inspired by him to create Let's Plays. Thus, he plays the biggest part in their ascension as gods as a whole.
    • NintendoCapriSun is said to be an exception singer and can make lyrics in a heartbeat. Despite this, he denied a place in the Pantheon of Music and wants to focus more on his Let's Plays. He also can hold his breath for a long time, once starting off a race by screaming "Let's get ready to RUMMBBLLLLLLLEEEEE!" for at least an hour. He could've held it longer.
  • They frequently make comments on how Bowser Land is the 'happiest place on Earth'; the Villainous Gods agree on that statement.
    • Not to mention that Bowser Revolution is like Communism.
  • They are extremely popular in the House of Technology, mostly for the laughs the Gods get when they see them in action.
    • The three host a little event known as "Thrown Controllers" every now and then. Everyone is free to participate in a videogame quiz/challenge hybrid. They will also accept any challenges in this event—but they will not go easy on you. To be prepared, one must have an encyclopedia of videogame knowledge (ranging from the Konami Code to how to spell out "Tatsumai Senpuukyaku") and skill (such as surviving Battletoads and fighting Glass Joe blindfolded) in order to be out on top.
  • ProtonJon has recently received the power to weaponize Tempting Fate. One should be careful when playing games against him; he will invoke Tempting Fate to screw his opponents over.
  • The Runaway Guys have a fierce rivalry with Mat and Pat in the House of Friendship and the five get into epic Let's Play contests with one another. It makes a killing in the House of Commerce to see which side gets the most Epic Fail moments, who screams the loudest, and most importantly, who wins in the end. They also invite Roahm Mythril to their matches.
  • The three usually play Mario Party but really hate it whenever they fight Peach. It's not that they don't like her, but it's just that she is a monster to fight against on harder difficulties.
  • ProtonJon is never allowed to have coffee after the higher-ups saw this.
  • Dudley and Professor Layton once came and gave the three some lessons on politeness, and so the trio used it during an adventure across Sackboy's temple of LittleBigPlanet. It only lasted 30 minutes.
  • Due to the "Steve" incident, Pikmin are to be kept away from the Guys' temple. Early after their ascension, when the Runaway Guys were still in the House of Theater, the Pikmin, being the way too plentiful pests they can be in other houses, snuck into Chugga's room. Upon seeing a red leaf Pikmin, his resulting scream was so loud that it shattered every window in the pantheon and left several sound-power based gods clapping in respect.
  • Because of the above incident, when the House of Gaming was being built, the other gods suggested that each of the guys' rooms, plus the meeting chambers they record in, be soundproofed with reinforced adamantium, except for Chugga's room, which got two layers.
  • Among the members of the gaming house, Chuggaa is considered to be more morally ambiguous than NCS and Jon are, due to his extreme fanboyism towards the house of Villains (especially Bowser and Hades).
    • Chuggaa also has stated how he ships Viridi and Pit. He was just one second away from Viridi dropping a Reset Bomb on the House.
    • ProtonJon and his followers have since started shipping Chuggaa and Daisy together after a stream event done by Jon (about 2:10:00 is when the game in question shows up). Chuggaa only has himself to blame for his poor word choice.
    • And when Miror B. ascended, Chuggaa actually wanted to join his posse. Unfortunately to him, Miror B. decided to decline his offer.
  • With Shulk's recent ascension, Chuggaaconroy has been fawning over him. When Shulk heard of him discussing his adventures in heavy detail to others, the Monado wielder came to respect his appreciation for his adventure, but often gets a bit flustered because of the heavy attention to detail. And when Shulk's allies also ascended, Chuggaaconroy let out a squee of exciement...especially around Melia.
  • Recently, ProtonJon has started a "league" for Bomberman Act:Zero where people maim each other with bombs for sport, almost like the gladiators of old.
    • One of the competitors, a moderator for Jon's streams named DanTheEnigma, challenged Jon to a match for his title of godhood after defeating 31 other competitors in a tournament. Jon ended up squashing him in seconds. Since then, an Act Zero match has not occurred.

    Solaire of Astora 
Solaire of Astora, Divine Initiator of Jolly Co-Operation (Brolaire, Sunbro, The Soul of Cinder, The Red Knight, The Incarnation of Kings)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/solaire-of-astora_7347.jpg
  • Demigod, but is capable of standing his ground against Intermediate Gods at the very least
  • Symbol: The Warriors of Sunlight symbol
  • Theme Song: Soul of Cinder
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Badass Normal, Cloudcuckoolander, Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold, Kindhearted Simpleton, Legendary in the Sequel, Nice Guy, Shock and Awe, The Power of the Sun, Wide-Eyed Idealist
  • Domains: Sun, Lightning, Multiplayer, Co-operation
  • Followers: The Warriors of Sunlight
  • Allies: The Chosen Undead, The Bearer of the Curse, Gwyn, Amaterasu, Celestia, Sven, Leona, Volcarona, Solrock
  • Enemies: Manus, Nightmare Moon, Yami, Balanar, Merascylla
  • Pities: Diana
  • Solaire was happy- no, downright thrilled to learn that the Chosen Undead resides within the Pantheon too. Seems like their jolly co-operation has yet to end.
    • Also met the Chosen Undead's Drangleic counterpart, the Bearer of the Curse. Solaire was quite amused to hear from the Bearer that he would become immortalized in the future on the design of a shield.
  • There are rumors and speculation going around that Solaire is in fact Gwyn's firstborn. Both of them has declined to comment on the rumor.
    • The arrival of the The Nameless King has brought most of the questions concerning Solaire's relationship with Gwyn to an end since those that stumble upon information related to the Nameless King quickly come to the conclusion that he is Gwyn's son and not Solaire.
  • Tend to spend a lot of his free time gazing at the sun. Most of the gods don't really understand why, but won't stop him from doing so. Solaire often has conversations with his allies and friends during his sun gazing. When asked if he wants to come with them, he usually declines with this line.
    "I will stay behind, to gaze at the sun. The sun is a wondrous body. Like a magnificent father! If only I could be so grossly incandescent!"
  • Solaire is always ready to PRAISE THE SUN whenever Celestia raises it.
    • Speaking of praising the sun, he's willing and happy to teach his sun praising gesture to anyone who asks.
  • He has considered asking Amaterasu if he may receive his own sun, then decided against doing so. He has a feeling that she may find it rude.
    • He DOES greet every sun-aligned deity in the Pantheon with his trademarked PRAISE THE SUN gesture. Some reciprocate, and some just politely nod at him.
  • Was once requested to go to the Field of the Ancients and the Summoner's Rift to teach the heroes and champions the virtues and joys of jolly co-operation, because of one too many incidents of excessive flaming. Solaire met and befriended Sven and Leona during this, and frequently shows up to the former's pumping up activity for rigorous training.
    • Solaire's meeting with the heroes wasn't all jolly however, for he met the sunlight-hating creature of darkness, Balanar. Needless to say, Solaire wasn't exactly happy about the existence of a monster who wished to cover the entire world in darkness. He has teamed up with Leona to protect those who Balanar would prey upon.
  • When he heard of Diana and her story, Solaire felt sorry for her. He's hopeful that she'll one day see that the sun isn't all that bad. He will gladly help her out if she asks him, though he don't expect it at the moment.
  • In an event where a solar eclipse blocked the sun by magic, Solaire was once again targeted by the Night Stalker. Despite fighting as well as he could, Solaire did not stand a chance against Balanar and would surely have died if it wasn't for Volcarona's intervention. Ever since they forced Balanar to retreat and got to Amaterasu in time, Solaire has been visiting Volcarona more out of gratitude.
    • Fortunately, this earned the Chosen Undead and The Bearer of the Curse's ire, even their High Priest/ess and fellow Slaughter demigod The Hunter are incredibly pissed off.
  • At one point, Solaire has been studying about a certain Pokemon that resembles the sun. He saw it and attempted to capture it. After 7 hours, Solaire came back preaching everyone of what he saw. However, when asked what happened, he would not respond. Fortunately, many artists in the Pantheon decided to draw what he described. This is what they have drawn under Solaire's observations.
    • When said Pokémon ascended, he's been thinking of appealing to it, though the fact that both of them already have partners means the best he could hope is to be allies, which is easy.
  • Is possibly another part of the "Soul of Cinder", many are investigating whether or not he linked the fire in his own world.
  • Has recently gained the notice of Karna, the son of the Sun God Surya. After a brief skirmish where Solaire managed to dodge roll a Brahmastra eye beam and parried a Vasavi Shakti strike, he has gained the Hero of Charity's respect.
  • "I will stay behind, to gaze at the sun. The sun is a wondrous body. Like a magnificent father! If only I could be so grossly incandescent!"

The Tactician, God of the No Casualties Run (Mark, Superb Mind, Robin?, Morgan?)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fire_emblem__the_tactician_by_sirmaxyukina_d34b82j.png
Art by SirMaxYukina with their default name
  • Demigod/dess, Intermediate God/dess if they're actually Robin
  • Symbol: Their overworld sprite
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Ambiguous and Purely Aesthetic Gender, extremely vital Player Character with little actual importance to their story, faceless and featureless, Heroic Mime, Mission Control, shipper to their army
  • Domains: Tactics, Casualties (Zero), O.C. Stand-in
  • Followers: many a Fire Emblem player, Nuzlocke Challenge Pokémon players
  • Allies: Lyndis, Sain, Roy, Marth, Jagen, Ike, Sigurd and Seliph, Chrom, Lucina, XCOM, The Immortal God-Emperor Of Mankind
  • Enemies: Mori Motonari, Grima
  • Opposes: Those who would sacrifice others to win.
  • Rivals: Grand Admiral Thrawn, Leader Abelt Dessler, The Commander
  • Special Relationship: Robin
  • The title was meant for Robin, but because Robin didn't want to be god/dess of two different tropes, the Tactician decided to take it up, since no other character can fit it better. Even if the Tactician might actually technically be Robin, or at least related in some way.
    • Another theory behind the Tactician's identity is that they might be Robin's child and Morgan's opposite-sex sibling from the Future Past timeline. This would explain why they resemble one another and why the Tactician is always the same gender as Robin without them being the same person (though the nature of the Pantheon can change that sometimes). It helps that Morgan shares the Tactician's Canon Name ("Mark") in the Japanese version of Awakening.
    • Yet another theory is that the Tactician was one of the lost Primarchs, and—after defeating Nergal—was approached by the Imperium, explaining his/her disappearance. Neither party confirms or denies this theory, but the God-Emperor is impressed with the Tactician's skills either way.
  • The Tactician embodies the player's desires to achieve victory without any casualties, going so far as to start over if even one soldier dies, because for them, the loss of one unit is too many. As a result, they'll aspire to achieve victory without a single casualty, thus their title is earned.
  • Out of all the gods happy to see him/her again, Lyn and Sain were the most enthusiastic, having been under his/her personal command before. They look forward to more future victories with the Tactician.
  • During long campaigns, the Tactician has the tendency to "play matchmaker" by putting together those s/he believes would do well together, even "skipping turns" after/just before defeating the enemy commander/seizing the enemy stronghold just to wait for them to start talking.
  • During battles, the Tactician would rather deploy Jagen and other veterans only if they're short on available troops. Another thing the Tactician likes is to make strong as many soldiers as possible, which means that s/he's gonna go out of his/her way to get rid of every single enemy in the field and, if confident enough, will even wait for enemy reinforcements.
    • They also somehow know which enemy soldiers can be convinced to join their side on the spot, given the right soldier of their own. Because of that, they prefer leading "small" squadrons of numerous unique soldiers/mercenaries/volunteers/nobles over platoons reaching so much as a hundred or more, since it's harder to keep track of everybody in the case of the latter.
    • In regards to units by other allied factions, what the Tactician does in account to them varies wildly between these three mentalities. One, s/he does not consider them in his/her plans. Two, s/he uses them as Human Shields to protect his/her own troops, unless that goes against his/her mission or there are rewards that would be lost if s/he did. Three, s/he'll count them as his/her own and extend his/her zero-casualty streak to cover them as well.
    • As for the likes of Priam, s/he will seek them out whenever s/he gets the chance, despite not needing his kind by the time they come around. Maybe s/he's a completionist at heart.
    • This however seemed to bring into question just now moral the Tactician really is. Does s/he really care for his/her tropps? Or is s/he just a perfectionist who happens to see death as failure? Concerned with these rumors, the Tactician decided to request a trip to the TV World; sure, s/he might be a sort-of-blank slate, but so was (Insert Name Here). In addition to the Investigation Team, Robin decided to come along, and given that his "Shadow" is already in the Pantheon, he's safe from running into it there. S/he's aware that Personas awakened there (which s/he managed to do) are only limited in where they are summoned, but since s/he's doing it to come to terms with that notion in him/herself, that's fine. After all, if his/her perfection is keeping people alive while also attaining victory, should it really matter in the end?
  • Despises Motonari for his blatant disregard of his troops' casualties. They basically serve as antitheses to each other.
  • Since Dessler is a master tactician with plenty of know-how on devising trap maneuvers, thus giving his prey an impossible choice between two forms of death, the Tactician is often hard-pressed to either make difficult decisions, or somehow manages to find a way out with sheer crazy-preparednessnote .
  • Doesn't know what to think of Andy. While he shows potential in maintaining the survivability of his troops, the fact that they're still expendable doesn't sit well with the no-deaths-period Tactician.
  • Whenever s/he's serving part-time as XCOM's commander, s/he always has his/her work cut out for him/her, given the immense difficulty to keep all of his/her soldiers alive.
  • Sometimes considered to be one of the many facets of The Commander, although the Tactician is somewhat offended, as s/he sees his/her counterpart to be all too often willing to throw expendable forces away for an advantage.
  • Doesn't appear to talk. Or at least nobody can remember his/her voice when s/he speaks, only that s/he does. To outsiders, no one is sure how they are capable of commanding their troops without (seemingly) a single word. Heck, not even their troops have any clear idea. The best they can say is that when they are around the Tactician, it's like there are some invisible arrows they follow. It might be telepathy, it might be something else.
  • Always runs into Tommy Wiseau in the Language house, and is always greeted by "Oh, hai Mark.", interrupting whatever Tommy was talking about before.
