  • For a while, some of the Endless have been evicted from the Pantheon for various reasons, but their followers have managed to find an appropriate title and return Desire to the Pantheon.
    • Of course, with their new title came a change of followers, but the former ones weren't about to step aside after bringing Desire back. Desire themself sees no problem with letting them continue to worship hir, and it's the least s/he could do.
  • Desire doesn't have a set physical sex or a definite gender. It's whatever it wants to be. It is the embodiment of Lust, Love and…well…desire in all its forms.
  • Desire will exist as long as there is desire in somebody's heart. Desire for power, for money, for sex... Desire knows what you wish for and just might give it to you. Or just might not. That's for you to convince him/her to do it.
    • This backfired on him when he met Eiji Hino and he transformed into an image of the Earth as it represents Eiji's desire to be a hand to those who need help. He's stayed away from Eiji ever since.
  • It doesn't matter if you are male, female, or neither, Desire will appear to you in the form you personally find most attractive and you will want it. You just won't be able to resist.
  • Desire is the supreme ruler of its House and oversees it with magnanimity but its rules are final. Woe betide to anyone Desire wishes to punish personally… Not even Akio Ohtori nor Bayonetta dare to provoke this.
  • While Desire can be an unpleasant character, he/she is not evil, and isn't amused with what Griffith or Slan do, as their mass murder and rape tendencies tend to deny plenty of other people the chance to feel desire.
  • Approves of Yubel's fervent dedication to protect her beloved Judai/Jaden.
  • Shows interest in the human-gem fusion Steven Universe and his Implied Love Interest Connie make when they fuse. Though s/he figures they could've made a better name for themselves than "Stevonnie".
    • Also shows interest in Crona, given their very ambiguous appearance. Although s/he is not a hermaphrodite, the issue of their true gender is still contested.
  • Desire and Dream used to be best friends billions of years ago. And then Desire, without shame or any pretense of hiding its involvement, made Dream's then-girlfriend cheat on him.
  • There are a few crazies who believe that Ash's inability to win the Pokémon League is because of his obliviousness and as such Desire denies him any chance of winning. Desire has not commented on this though has reminded people that it is easy to spot things other can't when it's not their life.
  • Grimaced when s/he saw Joshua Norton in the Pantheon, considering how Emperor Norton was able to break through each and every illusion Desire placed on him due to Norton's craziness.

  • A Servant who rescued Shirou Emiya while the latter was attacked by Lancer, and later making a contract with each other but Shirou is not an experienced mage which severely limits Saber's combat prowess. It was only until later that Shirou had her sheath, Avalon inside of him that Saber truly gained back her powers. Eventually, they have won the war but since she finally got the Grail, she finally passed on to Avalon rather than going back to her time of death. Shirou promises to find a way to reunite with her once more and sure enough, they finally reunited in Avalon.
    • How did she came here, you ask? Well, due to that timeline she got recorded into the Throne of Heroes, becoming a proper Heroic Spirit able to be summoned by the Master of Chaldea. She ascended to the Trope Pantheons with full memories of all continuities she's in for simplicity's sake and was bestowed upon the title of Goddess of Changing Historical People's Gender and Female Kings, due to being the first example of the first trope in her home series which became widespread and she is a famous and an obvious example for the second one. Shirou was there when she first ascended and they warmfully hugged which thawed the hearts of those around them since reuniting back at Avalon.
      Shirou: I told I will come for you.
      Saber: *giggles* Of course you would.
    • Was finally reunited with both the true Excalibur and Avalon. With these two items now in her possession, she has become a Greater Goddess.
  • Although her domain is primarily within the House of Gender, Artoria was designated for double duty in the House of Royalty. Allegedly, it was to even out the ratio of kings/princes to queens/princesses in the House... something that everyone finds a bit ironic.
    • However, she currently spends most of her time in the Sub-House of Weapon Creation in which Shirou Emiya resides. Her stated reason is that despite the two no longer having a contract, she vowed to always protect him. Plus, he is an amazing cook. Others, however, would think there's more to it.
  • Her relationships with the other girls are actually fine in spite of their competition for Shirou's affection. Rin and Saber may find each other disagreeing a lot in various topics, but they ultimately have Shirou in the best of their interests; most people like to tease them over being too close with each other, which was almost always met with insistent denial and furious blushing. Despite holding Shirou close, Sakura got along fine with Saber and they're able to relate over having guilty consciences. Rider has a little rivalry with Saber, with the latter being secretly jealous of the former's shapely body and Rider's biggest criticism being that Saber freeloads in Shirou's temple a lot but they're usually cool with each other otherwise. At first, Saber didn't want to think Illyasviel is truly Irisviel's daughter because she assumes Illya is another Einzbern homunculus entirely and she forgot to ask Irisviel her daughter's name; later as she interacts with her under normal circumstances, Saber is able to see Illya in a better light after the initial mistrust.
    • Initially, Taiga was apprehensive at Saber but then she gradually warms up to her, more so when they spar at kendo once and Saber appreciates Taiga's carefree yet honest attitude and knows she's worthy of being Shirou's guardian. Taiga also rivals her in the freeloading department though they are not looking to compete with each other on that.
    • Her reunion with Kiritsugu and Irisviel is both conflicting and heartwarming. On one hand, Saber gets along well with Iri, even having fitting dynamics with her. On the other, Kiritsugu got along the least with Saber because back then, their philosophies clash greatly with Saber harboring disgust over his dishonorable actions and lack of decency despite no longer caring about him forcing her to destroy the grail while Kiritsugu considers her someone who is too bound by a romanticized view of war and chivalry to amount to much good in the world. Of course, Kiritsugu has long since been inactive in his assassination business and he has entrusted his hidden ideals to Shirou entirely, so their hostilities has since reduced quite fairly; he and Irisviel are surprised that Saber and Shirou are romantically close, but they are not complaining since the two have been through a lot and they deserve some happiness after all that. Since their bitter opinions of each other crops up every now and again, their teamwork will be a last resort should everything go down the drain fast enough.
    • She and Archer at first antagonized each other, with their philosophies clashing greatly though later on, she learned about his true identity and began to reduce her hostilities towards him once realizing that they both have similar previous lives. Nowadays, they are pretty civil towards each other especially when working around Chaldea, and Saber couldn't help but fondly see his younger self in him. Due to her previous experiences with them, Saber is still wary of Lancer, despite him being legitimately friendly with her and Caster is still chasing after her hoping to dress her up in pretty little dresses; Saber often wonders if things will ever change for them for better or worse.
    • Saber also had a reunion with Diarmuid Ua Duibhne, ever since the Fourth Holy Grail War. She's relieved that he doesn't remember much of him cursing her, The Holy Grail, his former Master and said Master's fiancee while dying due to Trauma-Induced Amnesia and Diarmuid is still looking to truly finish their duel for once; they decided to remain confidants during their downtimes. The same can't be said for the Rider Servant Alexander the Great/Iskandar who berated her for her rather selfish wish, which weighs her down with her already guilty conscience. Iskandar notices that Saber is growing to be a better person and was proud that she heeded his words... well, it was Shirou who did fully convinced her to let go of it anyway, Saber thought. It seems they still don't like each other enough that it takes the Master of Chaldea to bring them together without them fighting.
    • Of course she's not pleased with Gilgamesh in the Pantheons, given that he thinks he deserves to own Saber all for himself; he seems to have gotten over that though the attraction remains clear and Saber is NEVER looking to entertain him. She was also warned by Iri that Kirei Kotomine is an evil man, and Saber decides to take her word for it; it doesn't help that it's true that he started the Fuyuki Fire which took away Shirou's past though Kotomine have nothing more to settle with her yet will still hold his ground against her if she foil his plans. Avenger is an enemy she shares with everyone no matter they stand with her, since he corrupted the Grail and caused everything wrong with the Grail Wars; Avenger himself couldn't care less about her much but he wished that she would still go after it one more time since he likes seeing people wanting their wishes to come true.
    • And of course, Saber had clashed swords with Saber Alter who was initially her Superpowered Evil Side but slowly started to manifest on her own. Saber doesn't like the fact that she has become the worst parts of Kiritsugu and Archer combined in one timeline and resolves to never let herself be swallowed by the Black Grail's mud EVER while Saber Alter still sees her as a foolish idealist of a past self.
      • Be careful if you remove Saber's ahoge while she and Saber Alter are fused. It will not end well for you. Fortunately, when they are separate Saber will just be plain angry insteadnote .
    • Artoria is glad that the Master of Chaldea has finally ascended, since she has full faith in him ever since their contract started. On top of serving him once more, she also introduced him to Shirou so that he can understand why she hold him so dearly in her heart.
    • The Saberface phenomenon is already getting on her nerves a lot, so much so that an alternate version of her "Mysterious Heroine X" persona manifested on her own to embody that frustration. Despite this, with the Pantheons' unusual nature with the space-time continuum she is able to summon her alternate versions from different continuities (including said MHX) and also assumes their form/Class by wielding their weaponsnote  which adds to her already powerful abilities.
    • She was said to be a descendant of Nero Claudius, a theory which Nero would be completely proud of if it was true though Saber doesn't really share her feelings back due to taking away her popularity by sharing her face. She feels that if they ever want to get along, Nero must bring her dessert everytime they meet, a challenge that Nero is ready accept. Altera however stays away from her due to being slain by Excalibur as the alien weapon Sefar, though Saber holds no grudge but is surprised that she is no longer that same Sefar, only a duplicate who kept the memories.
    • Artoria would never thought she would share the same face and one of her voices with a Frenchwoman, but once she has gotten to know Saint Jeanne d'Arc, she realized that it's the common ground they have in addition to living somewhat identical lives and becoming more open-hearted by a boy who they swore to protect. They often meet over tea discussing about various matters, which some say is far better than their Alters having a rivalry. Jeanne then introduces her to Sieg who she treasures dearly and Siegfried the hero who saved his life; Artoria finds Sieg to be budding like Shirou and is amused with both of them getting along while also appreciating and respecting Siegfried's ideals of becoming a "Hero of Justice", finding him being more pleasant than Archer.
    • She met Astolfo and was baffled at how he dresses to the point that he is mistaken for a girl very often, which Astolfo refutes that if she can crossdress, why can't he? She did provide a justification that Britain back then had outdated values and she was force to comply to prevent such an outrage, which earn a sad frown from the paladin of Charlemagne. Nevertheless, she still recognizes him as a knight of Charlemagne worthy of his respect while he knows she's still did a great job as a king through and through.
    • Artoria had a sad reunion with Sir Lancelot and Sir Gawain. Lancelot stayed away from her previously because he sees himself as a failure of a knight from his affair with Guinevere and his actions in the Fourth Fuyuki Holy Grail War as a Berserker while Gawain feels terrible over not seeing her true pain of her governing as king; Artoria forgives both of them, stating that she does not blame them for what happened and she would give blessings to Lancelot and Guinevere should they wish to be happy and gives Gawain an opportunity to be better. Since then, they have pledged to serve their king right this time though Gawain needs to make better food for once. She also finally found Merlin again since Avalon, and he did his usual distancing by fooling around but they both know that he's happy to see her again even if said distancing facade is annoying.
    • Saber recognizes Goetia, Tiamat and Kiara Sesshouin as enemies of humanity after Ritsuka summons her to take them down from fulfilling their destructive plans and likewise they don't care much for her except for Kiara who's expects her to join her world-destroying orgy. B.B. too after attacking SE.RA.PH. for a second time though she's less irked that she shares Sakura's face and more irked that she chooses to toy with everyone For the Evulz and B.B. herself is strangely iffy with seeing someone sharing Nero's face being righteous against her.
    • Reunites with Shiki Ryougi and Arcueid Brunestud since their antics at Ahnenerbe, which is currently not ascended to give Saber a part time job. Nevertheless, they still join together be it for taking down a larger threat, protecting their men or just screw around after a mundane discussion. Due to events causing Arcueid to distrusts Shiki, Saber often serve as their mediator in case their outings turn violent.
  • Had mixed feelings when Mordred ascended. On one hand, there's the whole rebellion of the kingdom, her bratty and unladylike behaviour and killing each other at Camlann which caused almost all her problems in the first place, not to mention her threatening to unleash Excalibur or Rhongomyniad should Mordred did something slight which others find concerning. On the other hand, Artoria does recognize that she did have some role in it all and so is perfectly willing to try and patch up their relationship. Mordred has yet to respond to these efforts.
    • And then the day finally comes. The Master of Chaldea and Jeanne arrange this meeting at Artoria's behest, and Mordred was nervous to even look at her in the eyes. They started by lashing out at each other, expressing each other's dark opinions on the other in a swordfight and ended with Mordred defeated by her "father's" hands, causing Mordred to spurt out her true reason for her rebellion: all she wanted was to not only prove herself to her "father" that she's worthy, but to lessen her burden that was clearly weighing down on her and that became twisted by her mother, their world's Morgan le Fay. After this shocking revelation Artoria dropped Excalibur to the ground and hugged her "son", sobbing uncontrollably, apologizing and self-deprecating for not seeing it sooner with Mordred doing the same and admitting that she too is in the wrong herself.
      Artoria: *sobbing* I was a fool to be very horrible to you...
      Mordred: *sniff* T-That's okay, father. Mother got to me too easily...
      Artoria: *sniff* I... I will make sure your mother will never, ever touch you, nor me nor any of the other knights when she comes around, okay?
      Mordred: O-Okay. C-Can I join you, father?
      Artoria: ...Very well, my son.
    • That said, despite largely being on good terms with Mordred now, Artoria is still critical of her reckless behaviour and unnecessarily fanatic obsession of her. Some people think she's like a disappointed parent wanting the best for her child, a comment the former king gets flustered by.
    • By the way, if you wonder how Artoria can be Mordred's "father", well it's a funny story...note 
  • Saber was strolling through the House of Royalty one day when she finally stumbled upon Arthur Pendragon, her Distaff Counterpart and to his surprise, she also exists in the Nasuverse. The two of them share stories about their time as a Servant and Arthur offers her words of encouragement to congratulate her as a leader who overcome sexism and they usually end their evening with a friendly non-magical sword fight to see which King Arthur is better. They, along with Saber of Red will team up against the treacherous Sir Mordred who is insulted that he and Arthur were female in another world. On a more mundane note, Saber and Arthur noted that they sounded like each other's Merlins which causes occasional confusions.
    • They later decided to join Artix von Krieger into the GUAG Sacred Knights division with Gawain, Lancelot and Astolfo following suit. Artix has proven to be a great leader which makes the three mutually respect each other and he likewise assures them that they did everything for Camelot and its glory.
    • Having experience with "Artie", Shrek befriended Artoria who felt bad that he was shunned due to being an ogre and not as another living being not unlike her who was accused of not caring for her people. Ash Williams was also introduced to her; she does not approve of his current behaviour and previous mistakes but that has not stop her from being impressed at his feats of defeating threats stronger than him.
  • She's recently started to form a bond with Sonic, due to him having at one point taken the title of King Arthur in an alternate universe. They get along rather well, and sometimes the two spar in order for Sonic to keep up his swordsmanship. She also looked at Shadow in confusion when she learned that he was Lancelot in that universe, but after learning more about him she actually admitted it was a fitting match.
    • And then there's Arthur and Sonic's uneasy alliance because Arthur's alternate self became the Black Knight and Sonic is too wary of Arthur being the same as him. Saber does try to mediate between the two, but it only works momentarily until they both have another reason to fight, much to her annoyance.
  • Prefers if her Excalibur is the quiet one, like the one in the Treasury's Armory. When it turns out there's another that has the same power, but instead is way more loony… (ﺧ益ﺨ) This Excalibur is SLIGHTLY more respectful to her than he is to most, as she is King Arthur, who was the only Meister he respected. He's willing to not interrupt her when she talks, and is actually willing to let her use him in combat. Regardless, he still wants her to attend his five-hour story time and listen to his "exploits." So, he still annoys her.
    • If neither Excalibur is available, she will use her other legendary weapon, Caliburn. Though more often than not since it's linked to when she pulled the Sword of Selection, she is often required to drink the Lily potion to wield it (also not to be confused with Chaldea's copy of her with memories plucked from her youthful days) but since Gilgamesh made it, she considers this method a last resort. Also, when she wields Caliburn her opponents could be seen taking extra care with their crotches out of fear from getting blasted in the nuts, in which she said the following.
      Saber: You should worry about your whole body, not just that one...part. Excalibur's beam is too big for that.
  • Jeanne introduced Saber to Optimus Prime, the Cybertronian leader of Autobots who commends Saber's sense of duty to her Master. He was saddened that Saber had great regrets for not being there so much for her kingdom to the point of wanting to undo her rule and assures her that she does not need to be burdened by her kingly duties and start being human again. By virtue of allying with Prime, Megatron has come to antagonize her and tried to insult her past to rub in some salt to her which worked too well as Saber hates him back for causing too much trouble for the Autobots. Unicron also poses a very dire threat on par with Goetia, and is working closely with the Master of Chaldea to combat the Planet Eater.
  • On a stroll one day, Saber stumbled upon a rabbit that seems harmless. Approaching to pet its head, the rabbit ended up ambushing her instead and forces the King of Knights to draw out Excalibur. After Arthur intervenes and both of them escaped, Saber facepalmed upon being told that the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog is no fluffy bunny and proceeds to abscond the moment she sees it again.
  • Has affiliated herself with a few Kamen Riders; most notably Brave, Gaim and Blade for being fellow blue swordsmen who praised her own swordsmanship and heroic actions in the Fifth Holy Grail War and OOO for being a fellow selfless hero with a broken past once introduced to him by Shirou. She also has given them support against their greatest enemy SHOCKER for which they are ever grateful for.
  • Few know this, but Artoria actually has dragon's blood running in her veins which gives her a massive mana reserve that lets her perform her most powerful attack. Crossbreed Priscilla approached her in one rare outing for her out of curiosity of said blood and Artoria replied that Merlin uses his magic to infuse her with it and not hereditary; Priscilla is sad that she's not a true half-dragon offspring, but finds Artoria a good companion. She won't mention that mana transfer dragon thing around her.
  • Don't be mistaken: even though Artoria is a Big Eater, she will only eat the most delicious of foods. Many have asked her if there was any good food in Camelot. Her only response is to stare into the distance in despair and blame Gawain for his bad mash potatoes. Though, the only food she will never eat no matter how good they are would be anything made out of octopus. The reason being that they remind her of Gilles de Rais' monsters.
    • This is why she's forever grateful towards the House of Food for providing her more options to eat... except for the Mafia of Cooks and Mystery Food X. She wouldn't want to eat anything from the former and she knows the Investigation Team didn't mean for the latter to happen, but bad luck has dictated its existence due to three members' inexperience with cooking.
  • As a (former) ruler of Camelot, it would make sense for her to visit other rulers of kingdoms to see if they did the job better than her. When she first met Simba and Mufasa, she couldn't hold in her excitement as she can't help but cuddled up next to the two, justifying it by her adoration of lions that came from taking care of a lion cub when she was younger. They were saddened that she didn't give herself the opportunity to be more open and let her people empathize with her, but Saber assures them that this time she'll make it right. She also gained a fondness for Sora's cub form because of the aforementioned took-care-of-lion-cub thing but that is just one reason why she has good faith in Sora; the other is because he's a better hero than her and Shirou that they both can't help but respect and admire his journey.
    • Gaius gets along well with Saber, as she was once a kind ruler to her people in her former life much like himself but he is sad that it was not enough to convince them that she cared enough. Kitana also allied with her for more than just a shared voice because both shared the same desire for justice and a just rule for their people, while bonding over their shared affection over another person. While Artoria thinks she wasn't the best ruler of Camelot, Kitana and Gaius believes she has done her best.
    • Surprised several among the Pantheon when she developed a rapport with the 16th Monster Lord Alice. For like her, she once believed she was unworthy of her title and sought to die to try and make things right, only to change her mind thanks to someone she loved. That said, Artoria does not come to her for any romance advice, which Alice took as fair enough.
    • Aldia considers her the worst king he ever known, finding her to be lesser than Arthur and pathetic for relying on sex for more mana; the feeling is mutual since she agrees with Shirou that Aldia does not deserve to be considered another living being anymore, because he died the moment he became immortal which stripped away his last shred of humanity. Saber's enmity with Aldia did open her eyes to evil kings like Ostarion and Arthas Menethil seeking to spread their respective influences who she finds to be just as, if not worse than Saber Alter; both Ostarion and Arthas scoff at her though they do recognise her abilities as a powerful king in her own right.
    • Relates a lot to Gwyn, as both her and him have strived for perfection for their kingdoms but they each had flaws, like Saber begetting her humanity because she thinks a king must not openly feel and Gwyn's extreme paranoia that resulted in the creation of the Darksign. Gwyn is a little irked that she had Merlin give her dragon bloodnote  but he knows that Saber is absolutely fighting for good while Saber can't fully agree on most of Gwyn's opinions and methods but she knows he has good intentions in mind even if they are questionable at best.
    • The moment Saber's tale of Camelot's fate was revealed, a large senesation was felt throughout her body, starting from her spine up to her mind. It turns out that the God-Emperor of Man felt some similarities between them both, especially on one thing: their attempts to be the perfect rulers. In a sense, both removed their emotions, especially apathy, and did all they could to be perfect to their people, but resulted in both being extremely arrogant and cold-blooded, which resulted to their downfalls. Her presence has led the Emperor on massive rants about his decision to remove his personal sentiments, believing that in a grim time, he needs it more than ever. Saber's reaction towards this was half and half, being both sympathetic on Emps for sacrificing and much like her, forced to face consequences of their inhuman statures (from Mordred's rebellion up to Primarch's lack of personal care from him resulting to their loss of faith, and eventually, the Horus Heresy). Yet on one side, she could not understand that for all his issues, he has not tried moving on from his arrogance which was a source of his grim necessity. The discovery has made her sure to reevaluate her life and implores her to be better now that she decided to live her life again with Shirou and be a better parent to Mordred for once.
  • Occasionally has a Mêlée à Trois with both Erza Scarlet and Satellizer el Bridget when she's in a particularly good mood, due to the fact that all three find some surprising similarities between each other like being good swordswomen and having close male partners. Artoria, for her part, considers them both Worthy Opponents and true knights.
  • Having empowered swords like her, Shana, Kisuke Uzuki and Artorias have befriended her on separate occasions. Shana gains Saber's respect when she helped to stop the apocalypse happening in her world with Yuji as well as saving him from himself at the end; Saber can't help but be reminded of Rin from her Tsundere behaviour, a comparison Shana oh-so denies while being flustered. Her voice brings Kisuke back some memories but he refuses to press on the matter except to ask if she wielded a bow, which she replied that she didn't do it often; some gods at House of Love have tried matching them together, something that baffles Saber who is already going out with Shirou. She felt bad for Artorias, who is currently containing the Abyss which may cause him to go on a rampage again, not unlike Lancelot becoming a Berserker; Artorias himself often treats Artoria as well as Gwyn, his king, often commenting he'd like to be a knight for both.
  • As Servants are basically guardian entities, Gardevoir & Gallade have acquainted with the Proud Knight-King hoping to keep on learning how to protect their Trainers better which Saber is more than happy to teach them. They do agree that Shiro Tagachi put a bad name to bodyguards of all as he is like any selfish Servant in a Holy Grail War who will defy their Master for their own goals; Tagachi knows Saber is dangerous to fight against, so he's staying away from her for the time being.
  • Despises both Nightmare and Soul Edge, seeing them as no better than monsters (and in the latter's case, of the Holy Grail of her world) in how they desire to absorb souls and spread chaos throughout the Pantheon as well as distrusting Soul Calibur because her facade of light does not mask her extremist goals; the three barely care for her as long as she does not intervene. They had to be on guard as she's often one of the first to offer her services in combating them, something fellow Sacred Knight Siegfried Schtauffen gladly accepts.
  • Has befriended Lucina over how they both pretended to be men at one point in their lives, watched their respective kingdoms fall into destruction and despair (albeit for different reasons), and traveled through time to prevent those futures from happening (though Artoria is glad that Lucina was at least able to succeed). They often spend time either sparring together or talking about their worlds or their respective friends (and maybe something more?) in Shirou and Robin.
    • It was during this time that she learned of the existence of the Fell Dragon Grima, and she has since offered her assistance to Lucina and Robin in order to confront him if they should ever require the aid.
  • As she is a genderbent King Arthur, Toyosatomimi no Miko and Tresdin approached her for her opinion on being the opposite gender and if it brings benefits; she expressed to them that it ultimately depends how the person takes it but for herself while having no problems pretending to be male, she never want to be biologically male again after her world's Morgan le Fay used her fluids to create Mordred who caused the rebellion that brought Camelot down which Miko and Tresdin were horrified to hear. Since then, the two kept in touch with her for later with Tresdin appreciating future friendly spars. She felt bad for Chihiro Fujisaki and Naoto Shirogane because their respective societies' expectations of gender roles caused them to crossdress under their pressure in order to not get bullied again and be taken seriously, not unlike her pressure to crossdress due to Britain's outdated sexism against female rulers. She vows to protect Chihiro in his time of need and partner with Naoto in hers which they are gladly grateful for.
    • Estonia was very surprised to see a female King Arthur, since he's too used to Arthur being male. Nevertheless, they got along for some tea once the initial shock was over.
  • Has told tales about some strange encounters she has come across. While she still wonders what connects her to them, she notes that she is surprised that she has not seen any of those fighters in the Pantheon... until she was reunited with Saya, probably the last person she would have wanted to be reunited with.
    • Luckily for her, Saya is not the only familiar face she have to reunite with. She's also formed a friendship with Heart Aino and a rivalry with Homura of the Crimson Squad due to their encounters there, with their feelings here being mutual.
  • Fuse's attack and arrival has put her on high alert whenever he is brought up as she recognizes his large scale threat and agrees with Ritsuka that he must be stopped. Fuse himself shouldn't worry about the former king that much while biding his time, but he knows she will be even more dangerous once she and Ritsuka team up with the Cartoon Network deities to bring him down with a Nano based off of her.
  • Once had a short falling out with some of the female deities when they found out about this. Luckily, the air got cleared when the GUAG White Hats clarified that it's just a meme floating around and said female deities apologized for the outrage.
    Artoria: I'm... serious. I really don't remember saying that.
  • Chiyoko Shiraishi hired Saber into her cafe after hearing about her previous waiting stint at Ahnenerbe, hoping to both give her work experience and emulate said stint's earnings without the disaster. Unfortunately for Saber, it had to be on the day that many of its costumers were a bit wacky. Despite that, she was able to convince many of those customers to order more then they wanted and scold them for any mishaps they inflicted. Chiyoko was so impressed with tripling her previous sales record that she asked Saber to work full time which the latter at first reprimanded her for even suggesting that from a king; she later gave in once Rider and Caster bullied her again for constantly the freeloading and wanting to stick in their faces for once.
  • If there is one other thing Saber and Rider can agree on, it's the fact that "eco mode" has its benefits. They hope the other Servants in Chaldea haven't caught on yet...
  • "The weight of my sword is the weight of my pride."
  • Also resides in Monarchs.

  • Mary Marvel came before Kara, but Kara's Kryptonian abilities overshadowed Mary's - even more impressive considering Kryptonians are vulnerable to magic, which powers Mary's abilities. Superman was able to ascend Kara to Goddesshood before Captain Marvel could ascend Mary.
  • Though the basic story of Kara Zor-El holds great similarity to her famous cousin's, to say that they are the same would be akin to saying that all humans are the same because "they are all born on Earth". Indeed, the differences in their origins could not be more striking upon closer inspection. Sent to Earth as a teenager, she arrived decades after she was intended to. Waking up to discover that her baby cousin was suddenly twice her biological age, and that she was now a refugee on a strange new world that gave her similarly overpowering abilities that were... difficult to control at best, Kara tries her best to embrace all that Earth has to offer, even as she longs for the world she once knew.
  • Kara is not the only character to hold the name of Supergirl (technically not even the first), but she was the most prominent, embodied the role best, and held it the longest. As of the latest Crisis Crossover, she is officially the only character to have held the title.
  • Unlike what some people may think, she has actually worn pants.
  • Although she is nicer and more compassionate that her cousin, she is more short-tempered. Beware.
  • Never, never, NEVER harm her cousin. She WILL kick your butt, regardless of your power level.
  • Neither she nor her cousin likes to talk about some of their Pre-Crisis stories that implied incest. Ask about them and they will get angry and ignore you. Persist and you will get a Death Glare. A red-glowing death-glare.
  • Supergirl gets along incredibly well with the Bat-Family, even Damien Wayne, whose... existence... she tolerates. Her favorite Bat-members are Barbara Gordon, Stephanie Brown and Dick Grayson. She also respects Batman a lot. He was one of the first heroes she met after arriving on Earth and Kara has been trained by him.
  • Kara has a good relationship with Wonder Woman from the House of Philosophy. Supergirl respects Wonder Woman for being the first female super-hero, and Diana values Kara because she is one of the strongest women in the planet and uses her powers for good (even if Diana thinks the young Kryptonian needs guidance and warrior training). Both women have enjoyed many adventures together and fought hand-in-hand. Supergirl has joined the Amazons sometimes, and in the Pre-Crisis universe, Queen Hyppolita once said "[She]'ll always think of [Kara] as [her] third Amazon daughter". In a darker universe where Superman died, Wonder Woman became Kara's surrogate mother. In another timeline, Supergirl, Batgirl and Wonder Girl -Donna Troy- are Super Best Friends Forever. She and the third Wonder Girl -Cassie Sandsmark- used to be very, very close friends.
  • Nightwing was one of the first heroes whom she met (in the Pre-Crisis timeline). Kara has a huge crush on Dick, which is not unusual, but she has heard rumors their alternate selves got married in a possible future. Kara is still trying to process this information, but she wonders why Dick would choose her instead of Barbara.
  • It's been hinted that she and Power Girl have more-than-friend chemistry with their respective besties, Batgirl and Huntress. Interestingly, she and Wonder Girl Cassie Sandsmark have actually kissed.
  • Hal Jordan has enjoyed some adventures with Supergirl, which is because he was so utterly shocked when he found she was chosen by a Red Ring. Hal was so concerned he sought Guy Gardner's help to guide her in properly channelling her anger. Kara tried to not laugh loud and hard when Hal entrusted Guy with the task to tell her cousin about her new status.
  • Supergirl often is disconcerted by Bizarro's backwards ways. Once she found out Bizarro had created her own Bizarro counterpart to help fight a planet-eating monster, but Bizarrogirl was just so loony as her cousin and needed much coaxing from Supergirl to learn how to be a hero.
  • Once Superman revealed the existence of Supergirl to the world, Lex Luthor tried to kill her to prove she was a hoax. He failed, and to add insult to injury, she saved his life (because she did not want him to escape his life sentence). Lex got so murderously furious that he grabbed a shotgun, fired at her, and then he remembered she is Immune to Bullets. He yelled that he loathed her and her cousin before being taken away.
    • Supergirl, though, did him a favor when she made friends with Lex's little sister Lena and kept her brother's identity a secret.
    • In alternate universe Earth-149, She captured Lex after he managed to kill her cousin. Luthor was banished to the Phantom Zone and she became Superman's torchbearer.
    • When Lex first fought her after the Crisis on Infinite Earths, though, he moped the floor with her.
  • When General Zod ascended, the whole House of El (Superman, Supergirl, Power Girl, Jor-El, Kon-El/Superboy and Lois Lane) declared they will NEVER kneel before Zod, no matter how much he demands it, and they WILL kick his butt before banishing him to the Phantom Zone if he tries to force them. And then the Bat-Family declared they would side with the Super-Family when he tries anything. Zod promptly shut up, but Supergirl and her cousin know he is merely biding his time and they will fight him again sooner or later.
  • Clark recruited Kara's help to stop Mongul when the alien overlord appropiated Warworld. In an act of utter badassery, Supergirl hurled herself at the planet at incalculable speed, punching through the star-sized weapon and breaking it down, which gave her cousin a chance to blow it up. Mongul attempted to get revenge on Superman but he doesn't care for Supergirl at all. Kara is understandably pissed about it but she is also glad because Mongul's sexism guarantees he will underestimate her again. And if he tries that "Black Mercy" crap on Clark again, she will show him the real meaning of the word "BURN".
  • Supergirl was a constant victim of Mr. Mxyzptlk pranks during her early career. He amped her powers up, depowered her, repowered her, lured her into a future century where everyone had been brainwashed into hating her, tried to get married to her (don't ask), banished her and Batgirl to other dimension and pretended to be her enemy Black Flame pretending be Supergirl as a part of a convoluted scheme to prank Superman and Batman (again, don't ask)...
    • Proving that he doesn't understand her cousin at all, he once and temporarily amped Kara's power levels up and removed her weakness to Kryptonite to humiliate Superman. Superman's reaction was considering that maybe he should be his cousin's sidekick.
  • Supergirl both fears and despises Brainiac for having stolen her city of Kandor and terrorized Krypton. It is speculated he may have played a hand in Krypton's destruction.
    • Once Brainiac arrived on Earth and shrank Metropolis. Supergirl fought and tore apart dozens of Brainiac's murderous robots before being captured. Shortly after she chased, caught and threw away a missile Brainiac fired at the Sun. However, while she was chasing missiles, Brainiac murdered her adoptive uncle Jonathan, making Kara hate Brainiac even more than she already did.
    • Ironically one of her main love interests is Brainiac 5, descendant of Brainiac and fellow member of the Legion of Super-Heroes.
  • Supergirl got annoyed when she found out about Metallo's ascension, although she is not too concerned about him, since she's faced him down several times. Once she was ambushed by Metallo, Kryptonite-Man, Silver Banshee and Parasite. While she fought she told them "I hope you don't think just because my cousin is out of town that you're going to actually win for a change" before punching Metallo out. An alternate Supergirl was almost killed by Metallo, though. Some deities have pointed out how ironic is that Metallo and Supergirl showed up in the universe at the same time.
  • Supergirl really hates Atrocitus. Although she liked being a member of the Guy Gardner's Red Lantern Corps, she blames Atrocitus for their transformation into berserkers who can barely restrain their negative emotions, and she hates him for trying to kill her friends.
  • Understandably, Kara holds a gigantic grudge against Doomsday. She hates him for killing her cousin and Doomsday hates her just so much as he hates any Kryptonian life-form. They have crossed path a good number of times. However, Kara usually has backup and is well-prepared when it happens.
    • During a battle she said "Smile, Doomsday. You're about to meet the Superman Family" before helping to pound on him.
    • When Doomsday's ungodly rage and hate for all things ended up attracting a Red Lantern ring in the pantheon, it took Supergirl, Superman and Atrocitus to team up and stop him.
  • Kara met Jean Grey on one occasion when the Phoenix was overtaking Jean's mind. Fortunately, Kara was flying by and managed to calm her down. Afterwards both women befriended each other, their bonding helped by the fact that Supergirl's best friend is a redhead. Jean was surprised to learn Kara serves in a team co-led by a female telepath, and noted ruefully both of them are best known by stories where they sacrificed their lives.
    • Some deities have wondered whether the Pre-Crisis Supergirl -who was able to relight a star- can defeat Phoenix Jean -who can snuff a sun out- in a kind of ultimate "Brains vs Brawn" duel. Both women put a stop to the debate when they declared they're NOT cat-fighting.
  • Supergirl has served several times in the Justice League during which she was mentored by veteran heroes like Martian Manhunter. In an alternate universe, J'onn J'onzz acts as a kind of surrogate father for the young Kryptonian.
  • She has zero luck at the romance department.
  • She and Power Girl together are contenders for the title of Goddess of the Continuity Snarl.
  • She's glad to see her best friend Babs return to the Pantheon.
  • She did NOT date her horse and is fed up with people who thinks she is into horses.
  • She doesn't regret her Red Lantern tenure because she learnt many valuable lessons and grew up a lot, but she sincerely hopes that she will never again be angry enough to become a Red Lantern.
  • Kara was delighted when her uncle Jor-El ascended. When they met, Jor hugged her and told she looked right like her mother, which made Kara immensely happy.
  • She was overjoyed when her cousin and Lois Lane become parents. She swore that she would give the Anti-Monitor treatment whenever he threatened Jon.
  • Naturally, she really doesn't like Norman Osborn, because he is basically the Marvel universe's equivalent of Lex Luthor. Not to mention that Spider-Man told her quite a lot about Norman, so she knows quite well how dangerous the Green Goblin is.
  • Tired of hearing Dru-Zod try to and justify his hatred towards the House of El on his banishment, Kara pointed out that, in at least one reality, he wasn't banished to the Phantom Zone and he still was a jerkass to her family just because he deemed it amusing. That got him to shut up for a short while.
  • Hearing of a an alternate world where her cousin becomes a tyrannical ruler, Kara saw her alternate-self fighting against Brainiac and torn between the need to stop Superman and her wish to get him to listen to reason. Suitably disturbed, Kara felt a greater eagerness to keep her own family safe.
  • Struck up an unexpected friendship with Buffy Summers when they found out that, being blonde action girls with super-human abilities who started out their careers fighting eldritch monsters in their teen years, they had plenty stories to share. To her surprise, both girls also found an alternate reality where they teamed up every so often.
  • Kara has sometimes stumbled upon other girls who took up the Supergirl mantle, but said meetings were unfortunately and disappointingly short-lived.
  • She wants everyone to watch her new TV series on CBS and The CW.

Intermediate Gods

    Kuja 
Kuja, God of Viewer Gender Confusion and Fashion Victim Villains (The Angel of Death, the Graceful Glider, Kuji-coo, Kuja-kun)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kuja_01.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A Silver Feather
  • Theme Music: "Immoral Melody", "The Dark Messenger"
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil -> True Neutral trying to be Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Disturbingly Feminine Men, Viewer Gender Confusion, Questionable Fashion Sense, Overuse of Theatrical Metaphors, Raging Narcissism, Total Mental Collapse Followed By World-Endangering Suicide Attempts, Camp Straight, Xanatos Speed Chess, Based Off Of Every Final Fantasy Main Villain Before Him, Born as an Adult
  • Domains: Charm, Destruction, Magic, Pride, Theatrics, Defying Fate
  • (Former) Allies: Kefka, Sephiroth, Chaos, Vega The Evil Queen, Queen Sectonia, Ardyn Izunia
  • New Allies: Golbez (also Odd Friendship), Megamind
  • Special Relationship: Zidane
  • Unlike Bridget, nobody confuses him for a female... when they meet him in person face to face. View him remotely, and you'll be convinced he's female. The theory the House of Knowledge has proposed is that he has very masculine pheromones.
  • If asked, The Question would argue that once you notice the man-thong, you can't un-notice it.
  • After Dissidia 012, Kuja's Character Development since his original ascension caused him to consider approaching Cosmos to ask for a chance to change sides and become Neutral Good. Kefka heard of this and played what he referred to as "Mind Rape The Genome's Memories" while Kuja was sleeping one night, and those plans were quickly discarded as Kuja embraced his alignment anew.
  • Due to him being part of the Akira Ishida family, Yuno has placed him on her shit list.
  • Was part of a group known as "Rule of Beauty" consisting of him, Vega, The Evil Queen and Queen Sectoria. They do argue who is the prettiest of them all, but they can put away their differences to kill any one who think they are better than them. Where he might be just The Dark Chick, the rest of them team know that he can potentially be the most dangerous member of the team, so they treat him with care.
  • When not in his temple, he can be seen in the House of Theater viewing the latest creations of the gods there.
  • One day, Kuja found Zidane confronting him, and Golbez suspiciously keeping his distance while staying close by. Due to Kefka's brainwashing, he attacked his fellow Genome, who countered and battled hard with intent to take him down and in a bid to make him remember their last conversation in Gaia. Allies (or at least those who oppose Zidane) tried to come to his aid, only for Golbez to keep them out of this "quarrel between brothers". The battle shortly escalated as gods joined in and took sides in the conflict, making the Lunarian's task much more complicated. Still, somehow, Zidane was soon able to incapacitate Kuja, then—as planned—the two and Golbez were spirited away with a teleporter that would take them somewhere more private.
    • In their secluded area, Zidane finally got Kuja to spill; the reason the latter turned heel again was due to what happened in the 12th cycle in the Dissidia wars; he truly was against Chaos's side, but Kefka's intervention forced his hand, and the mad clown would later alter his memories for the next cycle, which Golbez corroborated, recalling Kefka's gloating back when he was serving the GUAE.
    • After that explanation, Kuja asked what will happen next. Zidane offered him to join him in the GUAG, just like him and Golbez, at the Ministry of Atonement to be exact. And this time, there will be no intervention from Kefka or anyone else as they make their way to Cosmos, which won't be long since they had teleported to the House of Heroes. Kuja wasn't sure; he's played and reveled in the role of villain for far too long, and his tenure as an inside man didn't really go well. Zidane promised to help him every step of the way. Being a (soon to be) fellow defector from Chaos, Golbez also offered to lend a hand when he can.
    • One successful visit to Cosmos later, Kuja's redemption was solidified, and defensive measures have been arranged to ensure that neither Kefka or anyone else will be able to repeat the mad clown's stunt again.
  • Naturally, trust is slow, especially given he underwent a Suicidal Cosmic Temper Tantrum. So far, only Zidane and Golbez give him the time of day; Vivi's still afraid and won't stay around the ex-villain unless Zidane's by his side.
    • Given his flair for theatrics, Megamind is the first among those in the Ministry of Atonement besides Golbez to make an attempt to connect with Kuja. They managed to grow closer over a battle against the Plutonian, which Kuja found his reasons for villainy even more petty than his own.
  • Can also be found in Villainous Appearances.

    Kuroumaru Tokisaka 
Kuroumaru Tokisaka, The Androgynous God (UQ Holder #11)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kuroumaru_in_color_5000.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Sword
  • Alignment: Was Lawful Neutral is now Lawful Good
  • Porfolio: Immortality, Master Swordsman, Rapunzel Hair
  • Domains: Gender, Swordmanship, immortality
  • Allies: Touta Konoe, Evangeline A.K. McDowell/Yukihime, Kirie Sakurame, Setsuna Sakurazaki, Crona, Korra, Asami Sato
  • Enemies: Vaas Montenegro, Bambi "Buck" Hughes, Tsukuyomi, Hoyt Volker, Medusa, Quan Chi, Zobek, Shinnok, Gul'dan
  • He ascended after being invited by his friend/crush. He gratefully accepted, though he had to find the title as he wished to keep it a secret.
  • Unlike Crona, whose gender is completely unknown, he literally doesn't have a gender as his race choose his or her gender when they enter puberty. He prefers to be referred to as a guy, but many gods tend to refer him as a girl much to his chagrin.
  • He was initially sent by his clan to kill immortals, Evangeline/Yukihime in particular. However, Touta challenged him, and after defeating him, he decided to make him his friend.
  • As a student of the Shinmei-ryuu swordsmanship style, he has asked to be taught by the skilled swordswoman, Setsuna Sakurazaki, to improve his skills further.
  • He has a dilemma; to be a guy and have Touta's back, or be a girl and try to get Touta's heart, which is rather hard considering Touta's feelings for Yukihime. Despite coming to terms with his feelings, it was still unresolved.
  • He is very skilled in Demon Slaying that he's mad friends with some demon slayers such as Dante. Though it's something he laments as it's the only thing he's good at. The evil demons and spirits tend to be wary of him because of this makes him a dangerous opponent.
    • Gul'dan tried to recruit him for his abilities but he refused as he was already a member of UQ Holder.
  • His gender started leaning towards his love for Touta and slowly changing into a girl. Whether on not this affects her potential godhood is unknown.
    • His friends would support his crush and try helping him get together with crush, to little to no avail, as said guy is very dense.
    • However, he later decided to support Touta rather than pursue his feelings. Kirie calls him a coward at this.
  • He's not too fond of his immortality as it caused him to be exiled from his clan.
  • Because he is genderless he tries to take baths by himself. Though some curious/perverted god would try to peek.
  • He has also been hit on by may gods and goddesses, as some of them aren't sure what his gender is but they find him to be very attractive.
  • Kuroumaru was very surprised to learn that both Yue Ayase and Nodoka Miyazaki were both in the pantheon, and was eager for a rematch against them. He was shocked to learn that they were just teenage girls without the combat prowess he's seen from them in his time. As such, he decided to keep everything he knew about them to himself in the hopes that perhaps there wouldn't be a need to fight them again.
  • Along with the other UQ Holder deities, Kuroumaru accompanied Touta to a party that Asami Sato was throwing to celebrate Touta's friend and former seat partner Avatar Korra's transfer to her own new seat in the Pantheon. During the party, he was apprehensive at the few lesbian couples present including Korra and Asami, not out of spite towards them but because it reminded him of his own gender issues. Noticing this, Korra and Asami went to speak to him about how uncomfortable he was in the situation, and when he told them what it was about they gave him advice about making the best decision in his heart without trying to force things with Touta. He was a bit more confident and comfortable the rest of the night.

  • Mai was born Mai Hazuki, heir of one of the the Duodecim noble families just like Jin and Tsubaki. A week prior to enrolling in the military academy, she was changed from a boy to a girl by a grimoire, and unable to change back, was send by her father to the academy under an alias. There, she becomes the classmate and friend of Noel Vermillion, Makoto Nanaya, Tsubaki Yayoi, and Kajun Faycott. While initially sheltered and timid, as well as uncomfortable with her new gender, Mai eventually learned to open up to others and become more self-confident. She even starts to enjoy her new life as a girl after seeing how much freedom she had compared to her life as heir to the Hazuki family, and even falls in love with a male classmate. While her friends do eventually find out her secret, they still accept her for who she is and Mai soon comes to fully accept her change in life, seeing herself as a girl and deciding live life as a woman. After leaving the academy, she comes to join Sector Seven and work under Professor Kokonoe alongside Kajun.
  • The Court of the Gods read her case and offered Mai a position in the Pantheon as the Goddess of Accepting her New Gender. Mai accepted upon learning her friends were in the Pantheon, and a happy reunion ensued between her, Noel, Makoto, and Tsubaki. Mai also got to meet the other gods who participated in the Cross Tag Battle tournament, such as Mitsuru, Chie, and Ruby.
    • She was eager to eat Noel's cooking to celebrate her ascension. Because the grimoire gave her "Super Taste", Mai is the only one who can eat Noel's cooking, because her enhanced taste buds prevent her from enjoying normal food. Mai is able to taste the good feelings Noel put into her cooking, so it's the only food she can eat. Makoto and Tsubaki are at the very least grateful they have a valid excuse not to eat Noel's food.
      • The girls on the Investigation Team (except for Naoto) were also infamous for being Lethal Chefs, but their Mystery Food X is also edible to Mai. When Teddie tried using it against her, it only ended up healing her. Rise, Chie, and Yukiko said they would have gladly served their food to her if they had before sometime during their journey. Chie also likes to spar alongside Mai every now and then.
    • Makoto and Mai are Friendly Rivals, praising each over their their improved skills during their spars. Makoto also likes to get physically close to Mai, much to the latter's embarrassment.
    • She had crossed paths with Ragna the Bloodedge twice, the first during her days as an academy student (albeit not knowing who he was nor the fact he had the Azure Grimoire she and her friends were looking for), the second when she fought against him to protect Bell. Both times they did work together during their meetings, though Ragna had forgotten meeting her when they met a second time. They finally meet again in the Pantheon, this time on better terms now after Mai learned of his struggles in their world and seeing how much he's changed as the person (She outright stated once she could tell he's not a bad person despite fighting him to protect Bell, which is why she came to his rescue). Mai also learned that he's Noel's big brother, and is happy at the least Noel has a big brother she can count on.
    • She's one of the few people Jin Kisaragi treats kindly. Whenever they're fighting together, he compliments her on her skills, and she returns the favor. She's also quite surprised to learn that Jin and Ragna are brothers, and while concerned when she heard about their relationship, is at least happy to know they're on better terms.
      • Mai is one of the few who ships her friend Tsubaki with Jin. She recalls the time she tried to help Tsubaki win the position the position of Izanami during the Torifune festival so she can be alongside Jin, only for Tsubaki to ask her not to do it again.
    • Relius Clover is one the few people Mai has outright contempt for, considering how he treats people as objects. She was treated as an object once due to the grimoire fusing with her body, so Relius' atrocities are very personal to her. She's also horrified to learn that his son Carl is starting to follow in his footsteps, unable to recognize him from the same sweet boy she met in the academy all those years ago. Mai wants to save Carl from himself before he crosses the point of no return.
    • Soon got to reunite with Ruby Rose, who just like before, was excited to see her weapon and examine it. Though unlike before, Ruby has grown more mature and calm, and both she and Mai already gotten to enjoy fighting together. Mai also met Ruby's teammates, as well as the members of Team JNPR, coming to befriend them all, especially Pyrhha Nikos due to how the two of them formed friendships that helped them to open up to people.
    • Hyde Kido proved himself to be a good partner towards Mai during the Cross Tag Battle tournament. While Hyde did underestimate her strength initially, he did apologize for it once Mai proved herself. Mai also got to meet some of Hyde's other friends, such as Orie Ballardiae (who reminds her of Tsubaki) and Vatista (whose personality as an Emotionless Girl reminds her of Bell), quickly becoming friends with them as well.
  • Cu Chulainn was greatly interested in Mai's spear due to how much it resembles Gae Bolg. He is also fascinated by how Mai can alter the trajectory of the spear, to the point he has challenged Mai to battle to see which of their spears is better. Mai does accept these challenges, though is put off by how he teases her sometimes.
  • Mai has met other gods that underwent Gender Bender just like her, including:
    • Yuuta and Yui had swapped bodies as children, and it took them 8 years before they could accept their circumstances and become a couple. Mai greatly sympathizes with their pain of having to pretend to be someone else and the effects it had on their personal identity, and admits that if she didn't have her friends, she might have ended up miserable like they did in the alternate timeline.
    • Mizuki Suzuhiro was unexpectedly changed into a girl just like her, but eventually grew to like it, especially after falling in love with a male friend. Unsurprisingly, Mai and Mizuki get along very well, with the former helping her to adjust to the change while Mizuki ships Mai with Taro and hopes they can become a couple just like her and Takeru.
    • Ranma Saotome can switch between his male and female forms, though he clearly has mixed feelings and has wanted to get rid of his curse entirely. While Mai does offer try to comfort Ranma, Ranma has been unconformfortable on the subject.
    • There are also gods that undergo a Super Gender-Bender when they prepare for battle:
      • Natsuru Senou's female form is attractive enough to get the attention of both the boys and the girls, though Natsuru isn't comfortable with all this attention, nor the fact that most people tend to acknowledge him for his female form only. Mai admits she understands the identity crisis, since she was worried about losing what made her Mai before she came to accept it.
      • Souji Mitsuka's Tail Red form gets a lot of attention from everybody for being cute, something that does embarrass Souji but he doesn't make a big deal of now. Mai gets along with Souji well, though she is flabbergasted by his fetish towards twin tails and was also surprised he had didn't have too much of the awkwardness that came from first transforming (not counting the time he turned into Sora Mitsuka).
      • Souta Kishibe can become a Magical Girl named La Pucelle, which was a dream come true to him since he always admired Magical Girls. While there was awkwardness upon his first transformation, he embraced his role as a Magical Girl and vowed to become strong enough to protect Snow White, which sadly was cut short upon his death. Mai struck up a fast friendship with Souta, and sympathized with him over how his life was cut short after just becoming a Magical Girl and meeting his childhood friend again.
  • Became fast friends with Mai Shiranui, who shares both her first name and for also being Ms. Fanservice personified. The fact that Mai Natsume was originally male doesn't bother Shiranui at all, and in fact she acts like a Cool Big Sis for Natsume while also acting as a source of encouragement.
  • Mai is nervous around Merkava for feeding on people, yet also sympathetic towards him when she learns that he was formerly a man and is driven by Horror Hunger. Merkava in turn shows sympathy for Mai to the conflict between her body and soul (A former boy turned into girl), even when she denies it and tells Merkava she's happy with the person she is.
  • Due to Mai's status as a Remix Heart, she was almost turned into an Crimson Grimoire, which was first developed by Nine the Phantom. Nine apologizes to Mai for how she was almost used as a resource to create the grimoire, admitting she had to deal with Celica treated as an object all the time. She also doesn't mind Mai being formerly male at all, despite her usual dislike of men, since Mai has the heart of a girl.
    • Mai quickly came to befriend Nine's younger sister Celica, with the two coming to an understanding of what it is like to be seen as an object, yet still had people who can count on them and care for them as people. Mai tends to hang out with Celica just as much as her friends.
    • Mai once worked under Kokonoe alongside her friend Kajun. While she stopped working for Kokonoe, she still had a good relationship with her, though in the Pantheon, she did express disappointment with some of Kokonoe's actions, especially those involving Litchi. Still, since Litchi now has a happier time in the Pantheon and Kokonoe has tone down some of her antagonism, Mai is still willing to help Kokonoe whenever she asks for it.
  • Mai's spear is a known Immortal Breaker, designed to kill immortal beings by imposing the concept of death on their minds. Because of this, immortal enemies keep their guard up around her, especially Zamasu and Toffee, since they both relied exclusively on immortality in battle and have no means to protect themselves against it.

Left: Daisy, Right: Minnie
  • Lesser Goddesses (Minnie has the power of an Intermediate Goddess when in Kingdom Hearts mode)
  • Symbols: Their accessories, usually bows
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Minnie), Neutral Good (Daisy)
  • Portfolio: Alliterative Name, Funny Animal, Tertiary Sexual Characteristics, Species Surname, Distaff Counterparts (moreso for Daisy), Official Couples (married for Minnie, but just dating for Daisy)
  • Domains: Accessories, Femininity
  • Heralds: Millie and Melody (Minnie's nieces), April May, and June (Daisy's nieces)
  • Allies: Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Chip and Dale, Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck, Scoorge McDuck, Jiminy Cricket, Sora, Kairi, Riku, Aqua, Ventus, Terra, Roxas, Xion, Lea/Axel, all good-aligned Disney deities
    • Minnie only: Celebi
    • Daisy only: Ariel, all good-aligned fashion-related deities
  • Superior: Walt Disney
  • Enemies: Pete, Maleficent, Master Xehanort, Dr. XXX (especially for Minnie), Vanitas, Funny Valentine, Enrico Pucci, all evil-aligned Disney deities
  • On Good Terms with: Gordon Ramsay (Yes, seriously)
  • When it comes to distinguishing between genders (if one even has them), sometimes body shape isn't enough (or is not appropriate for the target audience to see) or the character's species doesn't have the appropriate body traits for such distinguishments, so one has to resort to stereotypical aspects.
    • Mickey Mouse was surprised that there had been no representatives for this sooner, not to mention the GUAG could use another ally, and immediately hurried over to Walt Disney to make an appeal to the Court of the Gods to ascend his partner Minnie Mouse. Donald Duck had seen him pass by, decided to follow him, saw what he was up to, and nominated for Daisy Duck to join her. One ascension ceremony later…
    • The first thing Daisy did was scold Donald for not inviting her sooner before kissing him. Minnie on the other hand is just glad that Mickey's still doing all right and they went out together.
    • As for why there're only female representatives for this title, that's because when one observes a character without any tertiary characteristics, male is often the default assumption, so it's not as necessary.
  • Applies to both:
    • While not officially Disney Princess the two are friends with them and hang out with them on occasion.
    • The two of them have a service called Happy Helpers in which they get called upon to fix up various parts around the Pantheon. One day while helping do repairs in the House of Food, they were asked by Chef Ramsay, of all gods, to help do some renovation work. Many gods would've been confused by it, but the two agreed because Ramsay reminded them so much of someone they knew named "Chef Oxley". In fact, whenever the two groups cross paths, Ramsay is shown to be quite a gentleman to them.
  • Exclusive to Minnie:
    • Minnie admits to not being the best person in her first appearances, but she has improved long since then. And the same can be said about Mickey, so fair's fair.
    • While in the House of Mouse, she's the club's bookkeeper and show planner and is often often responsible for saving the club in times of crises. And she's more diligent than ever in regards to security given the Disney villains, led by Jafar, once took over the House, and she's not about to let that happen again.
    • Minnie's intolerant of bullies, and has made that very clear. As for the god of those who hunt them, Jimmy Hopkins, she knows that he means well despite his gruff exterior.
    • While she does have Light magic, she's not actually that impressive with it by herself, needing Sora's (or Mickey's) help with his Keyblade to cast Faith, which can completely wipe out all Heartless in an area.
    • After being updated on everything that has occurred in the Pantheon from her friends, Minnie has been convinced by Mickey to help in helping protect Madoka from Vanitas due to his potential plots to forge the χ-blade in the aftermath of the Pantheonic Rebellion. However, she has a feeling that Madoka might not be the only target and is arranging for protection for all other potential marks, such as Sailor Moon, but after coming into contact with Tron and related confidants about this matter, she's kept this discrete, even from Mickey..
  • Exclusive to Daisy:
    • Not many know this, but before Daisy was Donald's love interest, there was another prior: Donna Duck. Not much is known as to what happened to her since then, but it is known that she already has a new boyfriend in Donald's distant cousin Whitewater.
    • Unlike Donald, to everyone's puzzlement and relief, Daisy voice isn't unintelligible.
    • She enjoys fashion and shopping above all else and, although well-bred and sophisticated when she wants to be, can be a bit eccentric and overbearing at times. As such, one can often find her shopping for clothes or exploring the House of Costumes.
    • While she gets along with all of the Disney Princesses, Daisy has particular fondness for Ariel, at least while working at the House of Mouse.
    • There are those who wonder how healthy exactly her and Donald's relationship are, given that when he once lost his memory of her and became an excellent singer, when given the choice of getting him back or letting him keep his fame, she picked the selfish choice. Oh, and there's her brief humorous suicidal moments during Donald's amnesiac fame as a singer. Daisy's only reply is that they've moved on from that phase since then.
    • In the House of Mouse, she serves as the club's reservation clerk. Like Donald, she craves the spotlight and constantly asks Mickey to perform, which he usually denies. On emergencies when she does perform, it's often hated by the audience, but only to the Disney cast. While there, it can be seen that she's a big fan of Ariel.
      • Don't mention the time where she practiced sorcery once and accidentally made the House of Mouse and all its guests disappear. Apparently, it also involved Jafar and Iago putting things back to normal, which explains why she's tight-beaked on the details.
    • Seems to be unaware of her boyfriend's escapades as Paperinik, and nobody who knows of it has thought to tell her.
      • Turns out she actually has a vigilante identity just like him called Paperinika and while she lacks powers, she has some martial arts and is a gadgeteer.

    Poison 
Poison, Goddess of Transgender People (Toxic Rose, Graceful, Sexy & Cool)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/poison.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Riding Crop Next to Her Hat.
  • Theme Song: Toxic Beauty, Move Over; Erm.. Is she pleased to see you? in non-action scenes
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Pink Hair From the 80's, Being Male in Japan, Wielding a Riding Crop, Fighting in Heels, Not-so-Pleasant American, Ascended Extra, Bare Your Midriff, Villainous Crossdresser
  • Domains: Gender, Wrestling, Street Fighting, Charm, Chaos

  • Rivals: King II, Cody Travers, Alex (friendly), Juri, AJ Lee, Simon Belmont, Jaycee, Jax Briggs, Zangief
  • Opposes: Corset
  • Pities: Crona
  • A former member of the Mad Gear crime gang turned wrestler and manager who sees golden opportunity for profit in many things, Poison is actually more well-known for the confusing range of stories regarding her gender over the years as well as the over-the-top bombastic sexiness she carries herself with. Before anyone asks what the heck is going on, she points to a documentary at the front of her door to give a better summary to her history.
  • Ascended after she, and her partner Hugo, went toward the source of Pandora's Box, defeating Ogre while doing so. They were only doing it to get the media attention surrounding the box, but Poison realized that just by going through all of the trouble in finding the box, it meant that any obstacles faced in the future would be easy. Thus she found her way to the Pantheon, hoping that Hugo will come soon.
    • The two soon found themselves in a certain fighting game tournament, with Poison entering for the first time ever. The two were thankful to the fans that got them the attention to enter.
    • Lost her Attractive Bent-Gender due to now officially being female pre-op. She's still a transexual in Japan and thus managed to keep that trope.
  • Is the manager of the Huge Wrestling Academy and goes to the House of Combat to see if she can find new wrestlers for her group. She hasn't forgiven King II for giving Hugo the Mighty Swing, though.
    • Met up with Mike Haggar and told him that she's no longer affiliated with gangs and is now focused on getting famous. Haggar was happy to hear that, but is keeping an eye on her just in case.
    • She's gotten into a feud with AJ Lee, and is one of the few gods who is willing to call her crazy in front of her face. Gods and mortals alike have been warned to vacate the area when that happens as the wrestlers leave widespread destruction in their wake.
  • Her relationship with Cody is a bit rougher on the edges. The handcuffed god still holds resentment over her involvement in the kidnapping of his girlfriend Jessica, not to mention the flirting had turned him off. Still the two are inching closer to burying the hatchet.
  • Unsurprisingly has a soft spot for André the Giant. This probably is because he was the inspiration for Hugo and the rest of the Andore family, and also for his heart-breaking struggle with gigantism and death from it (dying in his sleep while attending his own father's funeral). Poison was glad that Hugo became his follower, because that means she can see him whenever she wants. Some say the two are plotting to ascend The Big Show. That in turn would give Hugo the more glamorous spot of High Priest.
    • She's surprised to find that André's godchild is Luna Vachon in the House of Vampires and learned that Luna wasn't like the normal female wrestlers in the Pantheon. Poison felt pity for her too since Luna struggled with bipolar disorder before dying of a drug overdose, and then having her buried in the same plot of field as her own godfather. Luna was happy to have company, and her (ex-)husband Gangrel has shown to be very interesting to fight against. The only thing that she's really unsure of is how Luna Vachon and Gangrel became babysitters to The Cutie Mark Crusaders of all things (Luna tells her that It's a Long Story, a very long story).
  • Now that Alex has ascended, she hopes to book a rematch between him and Hugo in the ring. Vince McMahon has yet to confirm a matchup.
  • Many gods are more than willing to hook up with her despite her ambiguous nature, to which she goes along with the flow, teasing suitors enough to keep them wanting for more.
    • She's especially popular in the House of Lust, where deities such as Bond, Charlie Harper and Mad Moxxi all have a go at her. However, they have all taken an oath to keep the true nature of her gender a secret.
  • Is not a fan of Corset or his version of BDSM, citing that he gives bondage a bad name. That and she claims he doesn't make his corset fashionable.
  • Is one of the few deities that isn't bothered at all with Bridget's gender reveal. In fact, she encourages him to exploit his antics on various male gods, to their dismay.
  • She may like Juri's style, but not her involvement with Seth or her excessive brutality. However, Poison does understand why she does such things; M. Bison has ruined many lives, forcing many to go into extremes to get their revenge on him.
  • Sympathizes with the one deity who has even arguments over his/her gender. At least she can identify herself as a transexual, Crono doesn't even have that luxury.
  • Is amused with the existence of Yubel, who claims to be both male and female. The mis-translation of their genders led to a strangely strong bond. She even helped Yubel find a documentary regarding these gender issues.
  • Tried to become the Goddess of Riding Crops as well, but that domain proved to small for a title. Most of those followers belong to Simon Belmont, God of Whips. Her attempts to charm him out of those followers have so far failed.
  • When a mysterious new masked wrestler appeared in the Pantheon Wrestling Federation, Poison decided to start a feud with the woman. The two have several matches under their belts, with each claiming victories. Poison has been casually trying to guess the identity of this woman with little success.
    • Speaking of wrestlers, she had no idea what to think of newcomer Bayley who introduced herself to Poison with a hug. Poison feels that Bayley's positive attitude is bit too much, but she is still curious as to whether or not Bayley's the masked wrestler (as Bayley once went under the name "Luchadora"). That said, even she thinks that Bayley turning Heel to side with her "friend" Sasha Banks is a pretty low move.
  • Once trained Hugo to battle Zangief, God of Spinning Pile-Drivers. Ultimately the Russian Cyclone won the feud, but the two don't hold any grudges over it… at least outside the ring. Come wrestling time, they're still bitter over the loss.
  • Jax has expressed disapproval over her previous actions and is still not sure to trust her. He even refused to take part of a feud against her and Hugo. Poison isn't too upset over it, knowing it will take a while for some to forgive her.
  • Was once asked by Nanako Dojima — who share similar voices — whether she was a girl or a boy. Poison just patted Nanako's head and answered, "I'm just like you, kid" which was good enough for her. Poison has threatened to whip anyone to death if they brought up this soft side again.

    Pom Poko Tanuki 
The Tanuki of Tama Hill, Gods of Supernatural Genitalia and Defenders of Uncorrupted Wilderness

  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Tanuki, magical testicles, Ghibli Hills, Green Aesops, Master of Illusion, Shapeshifting, potentially more deadly than their behavior would suggest, Faux Documentaries
  • Domains: Beasts, the Supernatural, Tradition, Environmentalism, Genitalia
  • Allies: The other Studio Ghibli deities, the sub-House of Nature Preservers, the House of Celebration, especially Pinkie Pie, Amaterasu, Mamizou Futatsuiwa, Sanada Yukimura, Tom Nook
  • Enemies: Mr. Burns, Looten Plunder
  • Oppose: Angry Video Game Nerd
  • Rivals: Renamon (one-sided)
  • Terrified of: Johnny Cage and his family
  • Annoy: The House of Food in general
  • Complicated Relations: Tanukichi Okuma
  • On good terms with: Mario
  • When urbanization struck the idyllic Tama Hill, the residing tanuki scrambled to stop their territory from shrinking. They attempted to organize themselves to better push back against the humans, but certain factors (namely, that tanuki are naturally easily distracted, them not being able to agree on anything, and humanity simply not believing in the supernatural as much anymore) meant that their enterprise was doomed. In the end, in order to survive, some used their illusion powers to mix in with humans, while others remained wild and soldiered on as well as they could.
  • One day, the "green" deities were doing battle with Mr. Burns and his allies to stop the latter group from using Green Hill Zone as a dump for toxic waste. Deciding that they needed reinforcements, San had an idea and excused herself for a moment. Some minutes later, Burns' forces were sky-bombed by suspiciously fleshy yet furry round objects, crushing quite a few of their number in a most undignified manner. When the tanuki made their next attack by swinging their scrotums like bludgeons, Burns and co. were too surprised, grossed out and legitimately wounded, so they decided to retreat to pollute another day. To reward such a memorable debut and for protecting one of the greenest places in the Pantheon, the Main House awarded the tanuki with godhood over Super Sex Organs and Ghibli Hills.
    • When San came to them requesting for their help, the tanuki were reluctant to give it since their confidence had been shot because of their failure to protect their own home, and thought their help wouldn't be any use. San replied that if the past weighs on their minds so much, they could seek to redeem themselves by protecting that which still exists in the present and is someone else's precious home. Shokichi, one of the younger tanuki, thought she was right and was the first to volunteer. Everyone else followed with a little rallying up from Oroku. During the battle, they were surprised and very happy to see Gonta and several other tanuki who'd died in the mortal world joining the fray.
    • They've promised to protect any natural place in the Pantheon so that such places do not suffer the same fate as their own home. The existence of people like Mr. Burns and Looten Plunder, who'll ruin green spaces without a thought simply becauses it suits them, aghasts the tanuki; at least the humans who took their home did so because they needed the space to live, not because of any malicious intention to wreck the environment.
  • Mamizou, being a tanuki herself, was joyful at receiving the news of the ascension of a whole community of them. She, more than anyone, can be credited with helping the tanuki get used to life in the Pantheon. These days she can often be found in their temple, enjoying being around her kind. The tanuki also welcome her warmly.
    • She's also taken care to inform them that Doraemon is not one of them before anyone made that mistake.
  • Most of the deities in the Pantheon who aren't Japanese find the tanuki's constantly exposed balls and their magical properties very disconcerting indeed. Well, that or hilarious. The tanuki and the Japanese deities don't understand what the big deal is. There have been some attempts from the more prudish deities to force the tanuki to wear more modest clothes, though the proposals have always been shot down by the Court of Gods, who've judged that such a thing would be a violation of the tanuki's nature and culture and that they'd been robbed of enough already.
  • Because their testicles are so essential to them, they were terrified to learn of Johnny Cage, a man who specializes in attacking that area. He has developed quite a reputation as a fearsome monster among the tanuki (so have his wife and daughters, especially as Cassie has shown a similar propensity). Johnny himself has nothing against them and just finds this amusing. He's pointed out that if they can use their balls as bludgeons, they can't be that much of a weak spot.
  • They don't like humans very much considering they're responsible for destroying their territory and forcing the tanuki to change their lifestyle. For this reason, they do not generally seek the company of humans. They prefer hiding away much more than attacking them, though, and as tanuki are nothing if not fun-loving, they sure enjoy the entertainment that humans create; they've made sure to furnish their temple with a big plasma TV and several gaming consoles. They were floored to learn about the wonders of laptops and video-on-demand, which weren't yet around in their time, and were quick to acquire those as well.
    • San is one of the few humans they like for reasons that should already be clear, but also because she was raised by wolf gods in a forest filled with spirits, so she understands the tanuki to some degree. She and Ashitaka have slowly made process in getting them to interact with the other Ghibli deities, who're mostly human. Luckily, many of them are sensitive to the natural and spiritual world, so the tanuki like them well enough.
  • These tanuki have more or less three forms: a realistic one, an anthropomorphized one, and a comically cartoony one. Due to their isolationism, few other deities not trusted by them have seen them in any form besides the first one.
  • Something they struggled with back in the mortal world was the fact that humans didn't believe in their existence as they once used to. Amaterasu, who once had to run around all over Japan to get people to believe in her again, sympathizes with their plight. She also commends their efforts to protect nature both in the mortal world and in the Pantheon. The tanuki themselves were impressed that the sun goddess could take on the form of a wolf and think they prefer her like that.
  • Spend an inordinate amount of time at the House of Food, considering neither of their temples is located there. These tanuki are very gluttonous and particularly fond of human food, and they love nothing quite so much as stuffing themselves. Since they also love throwing rowdy parties while they're at it, Gordon Ramsay and other residents of the House have been seen running them all out plenty of times for making a mess.
  • Like any tanuki, they enjoy using their powers to prank the other deities. They find it hilarious seeing the others' scared reactions when they disguise themselves as haunts. Occasionally their powers are given more of a constructive use, such as when festivities are approaching and the House of Celebration asks them to participate by using their illusion powers to create thematically appropriate displays. Since the tanuki like to show off, they don't mind helping.
    • Even if it's not a day of celebration, they always manage to find a pretext to throw a party, no matter how unwarranted. They generally keep these to their community, but Pinkie Pie has managed to insert herself in these events with ease, claiming she wants to study their party-throwing ways to inspire her own. Due to her party-hard personality, which is much like theirs, the tanuki are quite accepting of her.
  • Tanuki historically don't really get along with kitsune, treating each other as rivals in the arts of shapeshifting and constantly challenging each other. Renamon is so far the only fox in the Pantheon to match the description of a kitsune, but while she'll engage the tanuki in shapeshifting contests if she has nothing else going on, it's not something she takes seriously.
  • Sanada Yukimura finds Gonta and his followers' Last Stand to be an admirable show of manliness. Gonta himself is over the moon that a legendary Sengoku general would compliment him so.
  • Their presence in the Pantheon is a bit of a sore spot for Tanukichi Okuma, as it gives the other deities ammo to make jokes about the tanuki's most infamous attribute at his expense, as he was named after them.
  • Mario has tried interacting with them through his special power of turning into a tanuki by eating a leaf. The tanuki aren't fooled (they aren't nearly as dumb as they look, really) but they're still impressed a human has some grasp on the art of shapeshifting, so they're okay with him and let him be around them (perhaps to show off how the pros do it). Now other deities keep asking them if it's true that Mario's package becomes larger in that form. They're not sure why that matters.
  • Apparently the Angry Video Game Nerd once rode a giant tanuki into battle. The tanuki would normally be indifferent to this, if it wasn't known that he had shot up Totoro. They weren't the least bit amused that a great nature spirit had gotten such a treatment.

Chevalier d'Eon, Deity of Transgender Confusion (Le Chevalier d'Éon, D'Éon de Beaumont, Lea de Beaumont, Saber, The Knight of White Lilies, Charles-Geneviève-Louis-Auguste-André-Timothée d'Éon de Beaumont)

  • Demideity
  • Symbol: An androgynous figure wearing half male's clothing, half female's clothing
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Transgender Confusion What Extends to Their Actual Sex note , Always Looked Like a Pretty Girl and Dressed as One, Was Both a Spy and a Dragoon, Was Eventually Exiled from France.
  • Domains: Transgender, Prettiness, Spies, Dragoons, Diplomats
  • Followers: Yagyuu Kyuubei, Xavin, Kizuna AI, Ellen
  • Allies: Poison, Charlotte Dunois, Naoto Shirogane, Perrine H. Clostermann, Astolfo, Ky Kiske, Ranma Saotome, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Beatrice
  • Opposes: Charles-Henri Sanson
  • A diplomat, a spy, a freemason, captain of the dragoons at one point and possibly a writer, d'Eon was many things. However, there is one thing what stands up the most about d'Eon; their gender identity. Born with androgynous looks, d'Eon used that fact to dress up as a woman some times to act as a spy like to get close to Elizabeth of Russia, and started to claim to be female at birth. Though studies made to their corpse showed that they were actually male at birth. Even to this day, people are confused on what d'Eon really was, in true gender and gender identity.
    • To make things more simpler, d'Eon asks people to see them as whatever they want to see them as. In fact, after ascending to the Throne of Heroes, their gender might as well be "whatever d'Eon wills it".
  • House of Commerce has put up a betting pool on what gender d'Eon really is. They honestly facepalmed at that, as they can't believe that someone would do that again.
  • Just to clarify, d'Eon presumably still has a male body, unlike Poison, who had outright sex change. D'Eon does sympathize with her due of constant arguments about her situation. The same can be said about Naoto, though only due of her being forced to pretend to be a man due of her line of duty.
  • Was supposedly part on trying to solve an Ancient Conspiracy. Though d'Eon has stated that those events are false. Especially in regards of their older sister possessing them occasionally.
  • Really doesn't like The Spy, another French spy. Though they have more friendly relations with other French people like Charlotte, Ky Kiske and Perrine. They are actually training Perrine how to wield a sword more properly.
  • Is little bit of confused with Kain Highwind as even though he is a "dragoon", he isn't a dragoon they are familiar with.
  • After everything is said and done, even they are confused with Mr Garrison. Because they honestly think that Garrison is screwing with everybody.
  • According to Mozart, d'Eon has an affection forwards Marie Antoinette. No one is sure how it came to be, but it could be due of them being exiled from France before Marie came to power.
  • They actually knows about the Assassins and even once asked for an assistance of the Assassin Arno Victor Dorian to help them. As such, they seem to also get along with Ezio.
  • Just for reference, "Chevalier" is not an actual name. It is a title roughly meaning "knight".
  • D'Eon has sympathies forwards Beatrice. Or rather, Sayo Yasuda, as they can't believe how badly things had to have gone for someone to develop multiple gender personas.
  • Has supposedly met Sanson in the past due of something what happened with him and his sister Marie Joseph. They really don't like Sanson due of those events, as Marie was only person who really accepted them as they are. Though they do admit that them growing a moustache was bit silly, looking back at things.

    Hideri Kanzaki 
Hideri Kanzaki, God of Wholesome Crossdressing (Idol Maid)

  • Enemies: The Mob, Bullies
  • Hideri Kanzaki is one of many maids that work at Cafe Stile, being one of the last to be hired and works as the Idol Maid, having always dreamed of becoming an actual Idol Singer. The notable part is that Hideri is actually a guy, he likes to crossdress because it brings the attention he craves for and because he likes feeling cute. He ascended after his co-worker and friend Maika Sakuranomiya casually mentioned that the place she works in has a maid that is actually a man, having draw the curiosity of the Court of Gods, Hideri was happy to apply for the position if is a means to become more famous.
  • Becoming a deity did nothing but increase his ego and his need for attention. While a bit disappointed that he didn't get any tropes concerning Idol Singers, he is content with having a title concerning his choice of clothing. Some have suggested he should drop the Idol charade and stick to the crossdressing aspect, since there are people that are into that.
  • While it may look otherwise, Hideri has been shown to get flustered around a few of his coworkers, namely Maika and Miu. While trying to hook up the former with his superior, he ended up having feelings for her eventually and he is constantly also seen with the latter. This has put a dent to the "Traps are Gay" meme so many groups like The Mob are very fond of, even if Hideri himself considers it offensive.
  • Wasted no time in trying to become an idol in the pantheon, with some moderate success. He is in friendly terms with other idols most notably the bigger groups like μ's, 765 Pro and Houkago Tea Time. He did end up befriending one of the members of the first group, Nico Yazawa, sounding a lot like her and even perfectly imitating her catchphrase. That said, she and the others think he should tone down his Attention Whore tendencies.
    • Of course has nothing but admiration towards Miku Hatsune, easily one of the biggest idols around and he desperately wants to be like her. She is flattered by his praise but still believes he has a long way to go.
  • Out of curiosity decided to meet other that are crossdressers like him. Hideri first stumbled upon Astolfo, considered one of the most beatiful males in the pantheon for some reason and he can see why, since even him got smitten a little. Astolfo, being such a Nice Guy, warmly welcome another Wholesome Crossdresser to the pantheon and decided to become Hideri's friend, even considering helping him in Hideri's idol career. Hideri turned him down on the latter, not because he doesn't want the help, but because he feels Astolfo would steal all the thunder and he can't let him do that.
    • Then there was others that were intro crossdressing for more personal circumstances than because of a hobby. For example, he was surprised Bridget was raised as a girl because of a belief same-sex twins are bad luck and then he ended up meeting Naoto Shirogane, a girl who dressed as a boy so the police would take her more seriously. He ended befriending the two because he did get after crossdressing since he doesn't like his life at the farm.
    • Surprisingly not much into transforming into a different gender, he is pretty fine with just crossdressing instead of becoming a girl, even if he could gain superpowers. Unless it did increase his chances of becoming an idol, then he would take the change without any doubt.
  • From Naoto he ended up meeting an idol friend of hers, Rise Kujikawa, who Hideri seeked out to see if she could help him get into the scene. He was a bit bothered about how the media perceived her and how her persona was warped by them into something negative, but she managed to accept it in the end. That said, Rise noticed that Hideri has a huge problem with ego that he has to work out.
  • Felt pity for Chihiro Fujisaki when he learned the reason he was a crossdresser, especially when he resembles a very good-looking girl. Hideri has an habit of lashing out at bullies for being and trolls who mess with friends and fans of him and so tried to confort Chihiro after hearing his tale. They became friends after that but he is a bit bummed out that Hideri is stronger than he looks, even if he is not proud of that himself.
  • Despite his harmless appearance he is pretty strong for a tiny guy. That's because he hails from the farms where he has been made to work for hours and he got naturally stronger thanks to that even if he doesn't look the part. He is not exactly proud about this.
  • Even if he wants to disassociate from the farm life, he is still on good terms with the Farmer and respects him for being the resident Farm Boy, even if the Farmer himself is a bit surprised by Hideri's gender and appearance.
  • Like Maika, he also tends to work extra hours on Chiyoko Shiraishi's temple like he does back in his world. She has tried to convince him to drop the idol act since it has been bothersome to a few of her costumers but Hideri rarely listens to her. Even then, his presence has brought the interest of many others that are into people like him.

    Lady Oscar 
Oscar François de Jarjayes, Goddess Who Was Raised as the Opposite Gender
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oscarrosetvtp.jpg
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Roses and her family crest (a blue lion holding a sword)
  • Theme Song: "Bara wa Utsukushiku Chiru"
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: A woman raised as a man, incredibly skilled and competent among her peers, snow-covered volcano, tragic rose imagery, so many roses, loves André, a commoner and childhood friend, contracted tuberculosis (though it's not what kills her)
  • Domains: Gender, Aristocracy, the Military, Revolution, Tragedy
  • Herald: André Grandier
  • Allies: Marie Antoinette, Jean Valjean, Jeanne d'Arc, Utena Tenjou, Sarasa, Mulan, Lucina, Artoria Pendragon/Saber, Naoto Shirogane, Charles-Henri Sanson, Isabeau, Souji Okita, Le Chevalier d'Eon
  • Enemies: Marie Antoinette's enemies, abusive nobles
  • Respected by: Emperor Calus
  • Oscar is a French noblewoman born in 1755 to the Jarjayes family. Her father only had daughters and was frustrated by the lack of a son to follow in his footsteps in the military, so he decided to raise his youngest as a man. Oscar proved herself talented with the sword, horse-riding and other masculine pursuits, and so was appointed to the Royal Guards at the age of 14. This was when Marie Antoinette arrived in France; Oscar soon became a favorite and confidante of the future queen. Nonetheless, these were the years leading up to the French Revolution. Oscar witnessed the Versailles court's shallowness and petty intrigues, as well as the commoners' abject misery and increasing rage. Despite her own noble birth, she found herself sympathizing more and more with the commoners' plight, culminating in her leading the French Guards in storming the Bastille, whereupon she succumbed to gunshot wounds one hour before its fall.
  • Her choice of Herald didn't require much thought at all; she practically demanded that it be André, the grandson of Oscar's nanny and an inseparable companion to Oscar. They grew up together and friendship turned to love as they became adults, though hampered by the fact that André was a commoner and Oscar was Oblivious to Love, not to mention her gender issues made romance into a complicated subject for her. Still, the two worked through those problems and proclaimed their love for each other... two days before the storming of the Bastille. André was killed the next day, and as Oscar lost her will to live, she followed shortly at the Bastille. But now that they're in the Pantheon, they can be happy and live as husband and wife without worrying about any societal norms, or Oscar's tuberculosis, or André's near-blindness (both were completely healed upon ascension).
  • Soon knew that Marie Antoinette was in the Pantheon, but hesitated to go see her due to her role in the French Revolution and their bitter final meeting. Marie herself had also heard of Oscar's ascension and was saddened that her closest and wisest confidante was avoiding her, and so made it a point to be the one to reach out to her (given she is technically no longer a queen and thus can't just send a summons to Oscar). Marie assured that she didn't blame Oscar for anything and both of them only did what they thought was right for France, and she only wanted to be friends with Oscar again. Oscar has always known that Marie is fundamentally a good person who was tethered by her position as queen. She affirmed that she has always been loyal to Marie as a friend and the two reconciled. Oscar hopes Marie has found the happiness in the Pantheon that she didn't have when she was queen. More than that, she seems determined to protect her and her family from those who would harrass them.
  • Reading up on the history of France post-1789 was a bittersweet experience for her as she came to learn of the intense bloodshed that ensued in the Reign of Terror and how in all the attempts to establish a republic, there were some occasions where progress just "walked back" with events like the First French Empire, the Bourbon Restoration or the July Monarchy. At the same time she also learned of some deities who were present for those troubled times. That is how she came to meet Jean Valjean, whose experiences she was interested in hearing about. Jean, who dislikes the police, was slightly suspicious of her due to her past as a French Guard, but thought she seemed like a very sharp yet honest person and she's close to Marie Antoinette, who has proved helpful to Jean. Oscar was outraged to hear about the heavy penalty he faced for stealing a loaf of bread and overall understood that things in Jean's time were about as terrible for the common folk as in hers.
  • When it comes to Charles-Henri Sanson, an executioner who was much feared before and during the Revolution, they are not exactly close. However Oscar seems to have a neutral-to-positive opinion on him, regarding him as a man who was just doing his job, regardless of how unsavory it was. Sanson may have a bad reputation as an "angel of death", but he was no sadist, and supported the guillotine as a quick and painless execution method. Ultimately, Oscar respects him, which is mutual on Sanson's end and given they are both on Marie Antoinette's side, they're more likely to be allies than not.
  • Oscar occasionally catches a glimpse of the mysterious Chevalier d'Eon, a spy and dragoon who mainly served Louis XV. Oscar and the Chevalier are easily compared, given the Chevalier was famous for their sexual ambiguity. Ironically, if one goes by the timeline, Oscar would have entered into service not too long after the Chevalier was sent into exile. For now, the Chevalier has pledged loyalty to Marie Antoinette, so they are at least nominal allies wth Oscar. There hasn't been an opportunity for much else given the Chevalier always seem to be on some secret mission or another, even though Oscar is curious to talk to them.
  • She was paid a visit by none other than Jeanne d'Arc, who had been eager to meet Oscar ever since hearing about her and tell her how proud she was of her for her contributions to their country. Oscar was, needless to say, pleasantly surprised and deeply honored to be bestowed such compliments by the Maid of Orleans herself. In the ensuing conversation, Oscar learned about the Holy Grail War, which Jeanne sometimes finds herself involved in as a Ruler after her death. Obviously it was all very strange, not to mention dangerous-sounding, to Oscar, though she supposes that in a place like the Pantheon, all manner of bizarre things that would've been impossible in her mortal life will become commonplace sights. She'll just make sure that she, André and her friends remain safe.
    • Jeanne also took the initiative to introduce her to her friend Artoria Pendragon. Oscar never would have guessed that England's mythical king was actually a woman (though it's more complicated than that, as Jeanne explained). Despite the frequent tensions between their respective countries, both Oscar and Artoria admire each other for being brave and noble warriors full of integrity, while also understanding each other's well-hidden grief at having to deny their more feminine inclinations.
  • Many, many women in the Pantheon look up to Oscar. She's an icon among LGBT deities and plenty of women find her attractive regardless of sexuality. Oscar is used to such attention and shrugs it off. Other women just admire her confidence in taking on a traditionally masculine role, especially at a time when such roles were very strictly divided. There are a lot of female deities who have had to behave like men, or even masquerade as them, for some reason or another; such deities include Sarasa, Mulan, Lucina and Naoto Shirogane. On some level, Oscar is held up as the "greatest" of them, given she pulled it off all her life, though Oscar is very humble about it.
  • Oscar's ascension ended the rumor that Utena Tenjou was supposedly her incarnation. Utena has never cared for that rumor either way, but still went to meet this woman she has been so often compared to and challenged her to a sword fight. As it turns out, Utena may have Implausible Fencing Powers, but Oscar has greater experience and a cooler head and so beat Utena. Despite Utena's relative immaturity, Oscar developed a good opinion of the girl from their fight and likes her spirit. Ever since then, Utena looks to Oscar as a Cool Big Sis, going to her for advice on various things and to train her swordfighting.
  • Utena also told Oscar about a girl who asked for her autograph back when Oscar wasn't ascended yet, so Utena ended up giving her own. She forgot the girl's name, though it was definitely something French-sounding. Oscar didn't have to think about it that long, as a samurai called Flynn soon showed up to politely ask her for an autograph for his friend Isabeau, who was a huge fan of The Rose of Versailles and Oscar. Utena remarked that this was just how it went last time, so Oscar instead refused and invited Flynn and Isabeau to a ball hosted by Marie Antoinette, to give Isabeau the opportunity to meet her in person (and frankly if she is going to give someone her signature, she'd like to know they are a good person first). Even though Isabeau was so nervous about metting her idol, she could die, she ended up having a good time, which was helped by the fact that Oscar danced with her, something she rarely does. In the end, Isabeau got her autograph and is pretty solidly one of her fangirls.
  • Oscar contracted tuberculosis later in life and would have died from it for certain, were it not for her involvement in the Revolution which cut her life even shorter. Souji Okita is likewise a samurai who fought for his country, but died at a young age from the same disease. The two appear to regard each other highly as warriors despite their wildly different cultural contexts (what with living on the other side of the world from each other). Souji seems both admiring and slightly jealous that Oscar was able to die in the middle of battle, whereas he couldn't do the same. He would like to duel her sometime.
  • Oscar's role in helping downtrodden commoners overthrow a tyrannical and exploitative regime has gotten her the approval from an alien known as Emperor Calus, who also started a rebellion that overthrew the dictatorial regime in his planet and encouraged the freed population to seek out happiness and pleasure. While Oscar sees the similarities, Calus is also known to do some things that are too ruthless for Oscar's taste, so she hasn't really approached him as a friend, though neither has she any reason to outright antagonize him, so she doesn't.

    Mizuki Suzushiro and Takeru Ichimonji 
Mizuki Suzushiro and Takeru Ichimonji, Divine Couple of Romance After Gender Bending (Takeru: Mr. Gorilla)

  • Herald: Yumeko Fujiwara
  • Allies: Loki, Thor, Odin, Alm and Celica, Lie Ren and Nora Valkyrie, Kanji Tatsumi and Naoto Shirogane, The Villager, Tippi, Noel Vermillion, Tsubaki Yayoi, Makoto Nanaya,Yuya Sakaki and Yuzu Hiragi, Chihiro Fujisaki
  • Enemies: The Terraformars, The Crimson Court, Stratos
  • Pities: Scarlett O'Hara, Robert I Baratheon (Mizuki only)
  • Opposed by: Segata Sanshiro (Takeru only)
  • Mizuki and Takeru were two male high school students who have been closer than brothers ever since they were kids. Things may have stayed that way forever if an utterly bored Loki, who bore the appearance of a young girl, didn't become interested in the very feminine Mizuki and messing with his life. The Norse deity transformed Mizuki into a girl. Takeru found himself attracted to his now female childhood friend, a fact which he was very conflicted about and did his best to suppress. Things became only more complicated when Mizuki began to also feel attracted to Takeru, causing her to outright go in denial. Several months of complicated teenage drama and self-discovery ensued, which concluded with Loki giving a choice to Mizuki: stay as a girl forever or go back to being a girl. Mizuki realized she was far happier as a girl, and so chose to stay that way. Soon after this, she confessed to Takeru and the two officially became a couple.
  • After returning to the Pantheon from this escapade, Loki actually found themselves missing the two, who they grew attached too. So when they left that world, they made sure to 'accidentally' leave the portal open between the Pantheon and it, ensuring that the couple would stumble into it. The confused teenagers were soon welcomed by some understanding deities who, after looking at their history, proposed to the court they ascend as representative of Romance After Gender Bending.
  • Naturally, Loki often hangs out with Mizuki and 'Mr. Gorilla' in female form, mostly to mess with the couple they kinda sorta set up. To say the two are conflicted about what she did would be an understatement (especially since Takeru didn't learn she was responsible for Mizuki's change until he entered the Pantheon) but they do see her as a friend if a really annoying one. Mizuki is even ultimately grateful to Loki for helping her realize what she wanted to be. The latter's response to that gratitude is typically to blush, avert eye contact and say that it's not like she did that for anything but to have fun. Nevertheless, the God of Trickery is very protective against anyone else who would mess with the two.
  • Odin and Thor went over to them to apologize for the trouble Loki put them trough. Again, Mizuki had to reassure them that while it was indeed a very harrowing experience at first, she's very happy with the change now. Though she was confused by the fact that Thor was much bigger than the first time she met him. The God of Thunder sheepishly replied that this was a 'slow day' for him. After this meeting, the two Norse gods decided to let Loki continue to have fun with Mizuki and Takeru because the couple seems to be a positive influence on her.
  • Tough their circumstances are a fair bit odder than most, they relate to and get along well with other pairs of childhood friends who became romantically involved, like Alm and Celica or Lie Ren and Nora Valkyrie. Takeru and Nora particularly empathize about being unable to confess their feelings for their respective best friends for a long time. They also get along well with another childhood friend couple, Yuya Sakaki and Yuzu Hiiragi, who even though they themselves haven't gone past just friendship yet, do support Mizuki and Takeru in theirs.
  • Because of father's strict upbringing, Mizuki had for the longest time a complex about being seen as masculine, which led to her being ashamed of her more feminine interests like plushies and women's clothing. She formed a friendship with Kanji Tatsumi, who had to deal with similar problems. The latter is more than happy to make stuffed animals for her. Mizuki similarly gets along well with Naoto Shirogane since much like her, she felt ashamed of her feminine qualities due to her family heritage and upbringing. Takeru also likes hanging out with Kanjiand is trying to encourage him to confess his feelings to Naoto. As an aside, Mizuki finds Teddie absolutely adorable, but any attempt by the bear to 'score' with her has been met with a sharp glare from Takeru
  • Due to sharing their respective hobbies of bug catching and fishing, the Villager like hanging out and visiting the more nature-filled parts of the Pantheon with the couple. Some passerby deities have noted that it makes them look like a happy family, much t the embarrassment of the two teenagers.
  • They seem to have a strangely high tolerance for Aikuro Mikisugi's stripping antics. They explained that one of their friends back home also had a very infuriating tendency to strip down to his underwear, so they're used to this by now. They still made it clear that Mikisugi trying to be too touchy-feely would result in a beatdown.
  • On one of their first days in the House of Love, they happened to see a butterfly shining with all the colors of the rainbow. Immediately enamored, Mizuki proceeded to catch it. She and Takeru were of course very surprised when it began to shout in protest. It turned out that the butterfly was, in fact, Tippi, who didn't find being caught by an insect enthusiast again amusing at all. Thankfully, after she calmed down, she understood that Mizuki didn't mean any harm, and approve of her happy relationship with Takeru.
  • Upon hearing about Mizuki, the Military Academy students Noel Vermillion, Tsubaki Yayoi, and Makoto Nanaya were reminded of their good friend Mai Natsume, who was also forcefully changed into a girl but eventually embraced her new gender. So they went over to meet her and Takeru and quickly befriended them. Makoto's energetic behavior especially reminded them of Takeru's little sister. Noel thought about offering Mizuki a spot in the League of Flat Chests but quickly changed her mind when she learned that the former boy was still growing.
    • Mizuki is good friends with Chihiro Fujisaki, another feminine-looking boy who got severely bullied for it. She does feel happy that Chihiro is aiming to make himself feel stronger soon and proposed to teach him Aikido, but he replied he'd rather train under another boy. So she convinced Takeru to begin teaching him judo.
  • Mizuki Only:
    • After she learned that other deities in the pantheons had experience in gender-bending, Mizuki was interested in meeting them. Of course, people like Natsuru Senou, Souji Mitsuka and Souta Kishibe can switch genders at will and identify firmly as male, but she still easily befriended them. She's even thinking about wearing her hair in twin tails thanks to Souji's suggestion. By contrast, Ranma Saotome avoids her because a boy choosing to be a girl forever disturbs him a bit.
    • She gets along well with transpeople like Poison and the Chevalier D'Eon. As far as they're concerned, she's also a transgirl, it just took her body changing before she realized it. At first, she was a bit weirded out by the fact that Bowsette coexists with her 'male self' and that Yubel possesses both sexes, but she also quickly warmed up to them. Yubel, in particular, approve of Mizuki's relationship with her childhood friend.
    • She befriended another person who has to face a similar choice to her in Kuroumaru Tokisaka, whose race choose their gender at sixteen. She wholeheartedly supports their crush on Touta, no matter what their choice end up being.
    • Despite her frail appearance, Mizuki is actually a master in the Aikido style passed through her family. In the pantheon, she met with fellow aikido practitioner Tenko Chabashira. Surprisingly, the Ultimate Aikido Master doesn't really mind that she used to be a boy and readily spar with her. This has much to do with the fact that she's prone to gush over Mizuki's cuteness. Of course, she gives the stink eye to Takeru when he comes to see his girlfriend after their sparring sessions.
    • Mizuki adore bugs and one of her favorite hobbies is collecting them. As such, she rushed towards the House of Insects when she heard about its existence. She wasn't disappointed, to say the least, and quickly befriended the good and neutral-aligned members of the house. She particularly adores Mothra and often catches a ride on the Kaiju. Of course, she avoids going near the Evil-aligned insect deities, but she can't help but find their appearance cool. Except for the Terraformars, who looks nothing like actual bugs. She's just plain scared of them.
      • Other buglike deities she tries her best avoid are the Crimson Court, who has been hounding her out of interest in tasting the blood of a gender-bent person, and Stratos of the Sumeragi Swordsmen after she nearly got devoured by what she thought were ordinary flies.
      • Of course, this means that she became great friends with fellow bug-lovers Agitha, Sig, Dr. Grissom, and Shino Aburame, though she finds the latter raising insects in his body to be creepy. They talk at length about what kind of bugs they like and have been thinking about forming an entomology club.
    • Even when she was a boy, Mizuki was interested in wearing girl clothing, tough very much in denial about it. Now that she fully accepted who she is, she has been thinking about trying out more outfits and so went to visit the group known as Dressed for Divinity. She was very warmly received by the designers there, who love working on such a beautiful and petite lady. Of course, she's grateful for their services, but she still finds being doted upon so much to be embarrassing.
    • Mizuki used to have a crush on her classmate Yumeko Fujiwara. However, shortly before her final choice, she realized that rather than really loving Fujiwara, she admired and felt drawn to her femininity. Because of this, she feels sympathy towards others who loved what they saw in people and not the person themselves, like Scarlett O'Hara and Robert Baratheon. Despite that, she feels those two are too unpleasant for her liking. She gets along much better with Jay Gatsby, even tough his misguided affection had a much worse result than hers.
    • Cinderella was interested in meeting Mizuki after learning the latter played her in a school play. The two became fast friends owing to their shared kind personalities.
  • Takeru only:
    • Thanks to his dad being a fisherman, Takeru's favorite food is fish, which he likes to catch himself. He gets along well with fellow fisherman Big the Cat, and the two often relax together while fishing. Sometimes Link joins these fishing sessions.
    • He also grew interested in Gon after he learned that he actually fights with his fishing rod and once caught a huge fish that was called the "Master of the Lake". Tough Gon doesn't fish must these days, he still sometime join Takeru. Upon seeing Gon's friend Kurapika, he joked that he should be careful to not wake up as a girl.
    • One time he was fishing along with Mizuki, he happened to catch a clownfish. Unfortunately, it turned out that the fish was Marvin, who immediately screamed in fear. After the initial shock, Takeru released him and promptly asked for forgiveness. At least, until Mizuki remembered something she learned at an aquarium and tried to ask Marvin about the natural gender-switching of clownfishes. This made the fish promptly leave. Things went better when he met Dory under similar circumstances. The blue tang doesn't hold anything against him for his honest mistake, though it's probably partly because she completely forgot about it.
    • He's part of his high school's judo club, and so was interested in meeting another judo-practicing god by the name of Segata Sanshiro. The meeting quickly degenerated when Takeru admitted that he never even touched a Sega Saturn. He survived the explosive judo throw that ensued but has avoided Segata like the plaque since then.
  • "But now I realized, I can't be like you. You are you and I am me. Up until now, I've tried my best to ignore my own words and feelings. But it's time to stop, and I get that, so... I'll use my own words now. I like you too."

  • In the coastal town of Iwatobi lives Haruka Nanase, noted for his love of water and rare talent for swimming. He has been friends since childhood with Makoto, Nagisa and Rin, who share his love for the pool and practiced since an early age. Rin left to train in Australia when they were in middle school and certain events led to a rift in their friendship. Rin came back during high school and was distant from his friends, who decided to revive their school's swimming club so they could meet Rin in competitions. His sister Gou was enlisted as manager and they got track and field athlete Rei to join to round out the number of members. Rin became close with his friends again after sorting out his issues with Haruka, who he considered his biggest rival, and they went on to pave their way to competing at the world level.
  • They were formally invited to join the Pantheon with sponsorship from the House of Sports, who were eager to have talented swimmers (of which Haruka and Rin are likely to go to the Olympics) representing the sport in the Pantheon. At first it was only really Nagisa who was excited about it, regardless of the inherent weirdness of a place where people like them can be made gods, which Rei pointed out only to fall on deaf ears. Haruka however was enticed when he was told about the House of Water and Moisture and demanded to see it immediately. Easygoing Makoto just smiled and went with the flow. Eventually they decided there was no harm in being gods of the Pantheon and decided to stay, upon which they were given the trope Gender-Blender Name, as their names are feminine or popular to give to girls. At length, they contacted Rin so he could join them, and, largely at Nagisa's behest, also got their club manager Gou in, with Nagisa reasoning they should have a female representative with a manly name. Gou is not the least bit amused, but stays with her friends anyhow.
  • Their temple consists of a homely clubroom. What is considered the greatest swimming pool complex in the Pantheon was also built in their honor, though that's located in the House of Sports. Deities of all stripes are allowed to come swim in it, provided they don't cause any havoc. Makoto can often be seen mentoring deities who are beginning to learn to swim. It is where most indoor aquatic sports competitions in the Pantheon occur. The gang also occasionally gets it into their heads to fill the pools with fun things like cherry blossoms or balloons for some extra fun.
  • Being that they spend a lot of time in water due to their sport of election, they have made their fair share of water-dwelling friends, especially as far as Haruka is concerned; he'd spend his whole life submerged if only he could get away with it. He and his friends have hit it off with mermaids like Ariel and her daughter Melody, who are fond of humans and thus glad to show these boys who love water so much all that there is to see underwater. To make things easier, the mermaids taught them to make use of Oxygenated Underwater Bubbles, making Haruka in particular indescribably happy at how he is not so limited by his lung capacity anymore.
    • Hanging out with the mermaids also led them to eventually meet The Diver, an underwater robot who preserves the aquatic environment. The Diver is not much of a talker and doesn't tend to seek out the company of humans like the mermaids, but she thinks that Haruka and his friends could be a sort of key to the harmony between the human world and the underwater one and is thus willing to guide them in their explorations.
    • Eventually Nagisa (of course) got the idea to get The Diver to help them make friends with their respective symbolic animals. For Haruka this was an easy endeavor, seeing that Ecco is an heroic and pleasant dolphin. The same can be said for Nagisa with penguins; he has loads of fun attempting to tap-dance alongside Mumble or witnessing the Madagascar penguins' crazy schemes. There was also a time when he dragged everybody to the Polar Bear Cafe when he heard a penguin hung out there, and sure enough, he glomped Penguin when he saw him, much to the bird's bewilderment. The whole gang have developed a habit to hang out there after practice. Makoto's animal is the orca and... well... even though The Orca is best friends with The Diver, there wasn't much she could do to convince the human-hating creature that these five boys in particular were fine. Makoto didn't take it to heart and smiled and waved at him from afar. At least, The Orca, usually very violent, leaves them alone. As for Rin, he contented himself with swimming alongside The Diver's Great White companion; sharks are generally unadvisable to try to make friends with. Rei refused to bother with this nonsense, probably because his animal is the non-aquatic butterfly.
  • On the other hand, the Pantheon's oceans also feature a lot of dangerous monsters (such as Lagiacrus and some variations on the Kraken) that wouldn't hesitate to gobble up the boys should they run into them, so they are a bit more conscientious about going in the sea than they would be in their world. Though, the fact that they've made friends out of so many good-hearted aquatic dwellers does mitigate the danger a little, since they are able to warn and protect the boys to a certain extent, and sometimes even dissuade the monsters from acting out.
  • Became friends with Houkago Tea Time after meeting at a club presentation and briefly competing (Nagisa and Ritsu's idea) to see who could put on the better show. After that, the swim club hung out with the Houkago Tea Time girls in the latter's club room, having cake and tea and talking about nothing among themselves. Nagisa started comparing everybody and arrived at the conclusion that he is like Ritsu (as they're both very energetic), Haruka is like Yui (very talented in their respective areas but have their heads in the clouds), Rei is like Mio (always trying to put a stop to their club mates' antics to no effect) and Makoto is like Mugi (both are cheerfully relaxed). Rin is Azusa, because they've run out of members to compare; Rin called out Nagisa for his laziness upon hearing that. Yui in turn proposed that Gou was her sister Ui... because they're both little sisters. Everybody thought that was groanworthy, but good times were had by all as they goofed around.
  • Another group of singers they've made friends with is the idol group Aqours, who coincidentally also hail from a seaside town (the group's water-themed name is no accident, after all). Given the two groups' shared affinity for water, they have agreed to team up on occasion for a show or to promote their relatively sleepy towns. Aqours have noticed that female attendance tends to spike when the Iwatobi boys feature as guests. By the same token, they've been personally invited by Akari, Aika and Alice to visit their homeworld of Neo-Venezia. It was quite difficult to keep Haruka from diving into the canals, but either way, they've become good friends with the Undines in the course of that visit.
  • At one point they were practicing their swimming when Rei suddenly let out a scream; he had come face to face with a little white and purple seal-like creature like he'd never seen before. That was the Gomamon belonging to Joe Kido of the eight Digidestined, who were also in the area and Joe was quick to scold Gomamon for his mischief. Despite the abrupt meeting, the Iwatobi group showed interest in the creatures known as Digimon and talked to the Digidestined at length. The Digidestined do have rather more in common with the swimmers than one might think, because despite their past heroic adventures in another world, they eventually started having to give serious thought to their adult lives in their own world, something the swimmers can relate to. Haruka and Taichi in particular struggled to really take that first step into the adult world, being a little reluctant to let go of their carefree childhoods. Other interactions went as follows:
    • It's not a coincidence that Gomamon decided to pick on Rei, as he looks rather like Joe with his glasses and blue hair. The resemblance also extends to their personalities, as Rei and Joe are both rather nervous and fastidious. Rin finds Matt's aloof behavior obnoxious for someone who has the crest of Friendship, despite Nagisa commenting that Rin was just like him when he was estranged from the group. Matt also distanced himself from the Digidestined in the past, though this doesn't seem to impel Rin and Matt to talk to each other about these similarities, perhaps owing to a sense of shame. Nagisa was mainly interested in cuddling with the Digimon, although he seems to get along with the similarly unfiltered Mimi. Gou hit it off with TK and Kari as they remarked on their older siblings' sometimes foolish behavior. Makoto and Sora quietly bonded, owing to their calm and collected maturity compared to the rest of their groups.
  • The Iwatobi boys are well-known for bringing the beefcake, of which Gou is a true connoisseur (distressingly, she doesn't mind fawning over her own brother in such a way, either). So enthusiastiac is Gou for a well-defined six-pack that she is known to prowl the Halls of the House of Personal Appearance in search of more (some of the deities there consequently think she's kind of a creep). Luckily for her, she quickly found one in the form of Alex Louis Armstrong, who is so proud of his physique that he doesn't mind showing off his muscles for Gou at her request, much to her glee. They make an odd pair for sure, but it's such a symbiotic relationship that nobody minds. That said, the boys aren't really sure what to make of it when Armstrong challenges them to a "flex-off".

  • Moriko Morioka is a 30-year old woman who quit her office job and became a NEET due to overwhelming stress and depression. Stumbling onto another MMORPG, Moriko starts the game playing as a male character named Hayashi. After a rough beginning, Hayashi quickly befriends a girl named Lily, who helps him adjust and recruits him to her guild, allowing Hayashi to make more friends. Meanwhile, Moriko has a chance encounter with Yuta Sakurai, who unbeknownst to her, is the player behind Lily.
  • Both were invited into the Pantheon not long after they started going out. The Court of the Gods wanted representatives of Cross Players, and found that both Moriko and Sakurai fit the mark all too well. While stunned by the invitation, the duo accepted and found themselves in the Pantheon, awestruck by its wonders. Moriko and Sakurai soon became excited to meet gods in the Pantheon, and from then on, started living in a temple in the House of Gaming. They still tend to play Fruits de Mer from their temple every now and then, but have learned they can still use their avatars in other games if they like.
  • The two soon became friends with other gamers such as the likes of Kirito and Asuna, Shiroe and Shizuka, and even Sora and Shiro. They were warmly welcomed into the community of gamers, which reminds of their friends from their world. Kirito and Asuna were experienced gamers and served as mentors to Hayashi and Lily, Shizuka once used a male avatar in her game but found it uncomfortable (making her a foil to the pair), and Sora and Shiro are fellow NEETs like Moriko.
    • Kirito and Asuna also supported the pair's relationship and even allow them to hang out with their foster daughter Yui, who comes to see them as good friends and even an honorary aunt and uncle. Both Moriko and Yuta felt honored by this, and even come to dote on Yui herself.
    • Moriko is a sympathetic NEET because while she was good at her job, it was too overwhelming for her to continue, so she needed a hobby to take care of the stress. She proudly calls herself an "elite NEET" since she chose the lifestyle, but is embarrassed when other people find out. Sora and Shiro are also proud of being NEETs, but they reassure her choice isn't exactly a bad one and it's okay to have a hobby to depend on in times of stress.
      • Moriko would also meet a fellow NEET and otaku, Tomoko and Umaru respectively. Tomoko came to enjoy Moriko's company so much, coming see her as a big sister or mother figure since she treated her with kindness. Umaru was also sympathetic towards Moriko when she heard that she became a NEET due to a nervous breakdown at work. All three tend to play games together in their free time, while Umaru and Tomoko also ship Moriko with Sakurai and make bets to see how long it will take for them to tie the knot.
  • The House of Love noted how Moriko and and Sakurai meetings together in real life and on game all happened coincidentally, actively wondering if fate has actually shipped them together. Nevertheless, they do think they make a good pair together, much to their embarrassment.
  • Sakurai found a kindred spirit in Ann Takamaki, since he felt ostracized for his mixed heritage. Ann sympathizes with him, having felt discriminated by the students at her high school for the same reasons. Both do enjoy playing games with each other, and Ann even ships Sakurai with Morioko
  • Hayashi and Lily are absolutely horrified and disgusted by the likes of Sugou, Quinella, and Death Watch, since they use virtual reality to commit horrible crimes or atrocities against the innocent. While they simply use a normal MMORPG, it doesn't make the three's crimes any less horrific, and they don't have the experience to deal with them.
  • Chiaki Nanami is an avid gamer, so she quickly became friends with duo after learning how they became friends through gaming, similar to herself and Hajime. Chiaki is quite supportive of the duo in their game, providing advice to improve their skills, and she also ships them after seeing how well they get along. The duo appreciate Chaiki's kindness and support, and they also ship her with Hajime after seeing how close the two are.
  • Lan and MegaMan.EXE became quick friends with the duo due to their gaming experience. Both of them are eager to show them how to NetBattle should they ever get their own NetNavi. They also introduced them to Iris, a young and peaceful girl NetNavi that Moriko and Yuta found rather cute. Iris came to see them as Parental Substitutes due to their kindness and also shipped them just like everyone else. She can be seen hanging out with them during their free time, and even decides to enter their MMORPG from time to time.
  • Hayashi and Lily would soon enter the Digimon's world, quickly the befriending Digimon such as Culumon (Yui's partner), HerakleKabuterimon, and even the Royal Knights. The heroic human deities from the Digimon world (especially the likes of the Digidestined) also became good friends with the duo, offering to help them find their own Digimon partner sometime if they ever want to join them in their adventures.

  • Yuuta and Yui were two children that initially didn't get along and were polar opposites. Yuuta was a thrill-seeking boy while Yui was a lone, "goody-two shoes" girl. One day, Yuuta fell from a tree right onto her and swapped bodies with her. Both of them were terrified of their circumstances, but they are unable to switch back, forcing them to live out the other's life, with Yuuta's best friend Kazuma Takaoka being the only one who knows their secret. Years passed as the two grew into adolescence, with everyone knowing them for their current personalities and the two desperately wishing to return to their original bodies. Yuuta and Yui still manage to make some friends though, while confiding in each other their struggles. They also tend to into arguments when one of them is being insensitive towards the other. Even though they have found someone who fell in love with them (Hayato Tachibana for Yuuta and Kazuma for Yui), the two eventually realize how much they mean to each other, especially when Yuuta's body gets hit by a truck, causing them to switch back after 8 years. With Yuuta in critical condition, Yui finally realizes how much she loves Yuuta and prays for them to switch bodies again if it means saving him. The prayer is answered, and while Yui is recovering in Yuuta's body, both of them officially become a couple and fully accept their circumstances, now calling themselves by the other's name. They would eventually get married and have a son and daughter.
    • One day in the Pantheon, the Court of the Gods reviewed their case and send a messenger with an invitation to the Pantheon, having shown an interest in their story and emotional journey. The two accepted and became representatives of Gender Bender Angst. They shortly after learned that in an alternate timeline, Yuuta fell for Tachibana and failed to notice Yui's deteriorating mental state, which apparently caused her death, leaving Yuuta to lament his failure to understand her as he spends the rest of his life in her body. The two could only look on in horror about this, with Yui even admitting she would have ended up like that if neither of them had taken the time to understand the other's pain and apologize. Yuuta notes he was only a few steps away from making such a mistake.
    • The gods have offered to help switch Yuuta and Yui back to their original bodies if they so desire, no strings attached. But the two turn down the offer, stating they have already grown used to being the other's body and even admit if it weren't for that, they never would have gotten together. They do, however, no longer have to pretend to be the other, acting fully as themselves and being able to share their history with other people in the pantheon, though they still seem to call each other by their spouse's name out of habit.
  • The two soon crossed paths with Anna and Tess Coleman, who had also gone through a body swap scenario that forced them to learn about the other's pain, albeit through different means. And unlike them, they were able to switch back after both learned their lesson. Anna and Tess can only give Yuuta and Yui their condolences about the struggles they had to go through growing up.
  • Deities in the House of Gender/Sex Miscellaneous, particularly Poison, Natsuro, Ramna, and Mizuki, show pity for Yuuta and Yui for having to live for years as the unwanted gender, with nobody but your closest confidants knowing the truth. It's even worse in their situation since nobody else would likely believe them, and everybody only knows them for their current personalities. Yuuta and Yui admit it was painful, but they eventually learned to accept it because being together makes it worthwhile.
    • Natsuro knows what it's like to only be acknowledged as the opposite gender, since his Kämpfer form became popular with both males and females. The girl he was interested in, Kaede Sakura, was only interested in his female form and showed nothing but disgust for his true self.
    • Mizuki understands Yuuta and Yui's feelings all too well, having gone through a similar experience. But whereas she had a subconscious desire to be feminine, Yuuta and Yui weren't happy at all with the change at all, and it took years for the two to accept their circumstances. Mizuki promises to be there for them when they need, something they appreciate greatly.
    • Ramna actually avoids the two since, even though they initially disliked their circumstances, they eventually grew to accept them. Ramna has been trying to lift his curse of transforming into a girl and doesn't even want to entertain the notion of it being permanent.
  • Yuuta, in the mortal world, never truly got to carry out his dream of being soccer player because of the body swap. But in the Pantheon, the Gods have told Yuuta that he is free to carry out his dream if he still wants it, so he goes to the House of Sports to try out for soccer. He has spent his days training, hoping to carry out his childhood dream, while receiving support in the Pantheon. When he's not training, Yuuta also tends to go to the House of Technology due to also becoming a web designer for his career choice, having gotten used to working on this field of choice. He admits to Yui in the Pantheon about how he lied about his dream, having given up his childhood dream because of the body swap. Yui assures him that she's not mad and encourages him to follow his dream, having long since learned to be honest and considerate.
  • Yui is also good with children, having grown up with Yuuta's brother Haruki, so she decided to be a nursery school teacher for her career choice. A lot of children get along with Yui, and Yui goes to the House of School to help teach child deities that go there for education.
  • The two are wary of body snatchers in general, since unlike their body swap (which was entirely unintentional and they tried their best not to ruin the other's reputation), they tend to take people's bodies deliberately and ruin their lives. Some of the most notable examples include Zamasu (who swapped bodies with Goku before killing him in front of his family and killing them too), Needles Kane (Granted, Calypso was far from a saint, but what Needles Kane did still reminds them of the alternate timeline), and Dante (Who kills anyone she swaps bodies with, not to mention what she intended to do when she stole Rose's body).
  • Junko Enoshima was really enticed by their trauma, but was disappointed that their relationship didn't end in tragedy like in the alternate timeline, so she wants to make it the same events come to pass. The two in turn outright loathe her for enjoying people's misery, and are disgusted by her desire for despair. They're also downright horrified when they discovered how Junko blackmailed Juzo Sakakura, with the former even admitting she would have gladly used their secret against them if it pushed past the Despair Event Horizon.
