CLU 2, God of The Impossibility Of Perfection (Codified Likeness Utility 2.0, Clu, Excellency)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-Tron_legacy_clu-1-_7474.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A Yellow Identity Disk
  • Theme Song: C.L.U. (films); Gigabyte Mantis (Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance)
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Polite, charismatic, and ruthless behavior, Cannot Create New Programs, Authority Equals Asskicking, From Nobody to Nightmare, Programming-Based Morality, Anything For A Perfect System, Yet Proving There Is No Thing, The Corrupter, Visionary Villain, The Computer Is Your Friend
  • Domains: Technology, Rectification, Order, Programs, Control, Perfection
  • Herald: The Commantis
  • Allies: YHVH, Metatron, The Incubators, Glados, Rassilon, Albert Wesker, Relius Clover, Sun Li, Penelope Mouse, Lysandre, The Architect, Embryo
  • Enemies: Kevin Flynn, Sam Flynn, Tronnote , Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Sora, Riku, Kairi, Otacon, Terra, Aqua, Ventus, Axel/Lea, Roxas, Xion, Daft Punk, Neo, Gabriel Belmont, Sly Cooper, Bentley Turtle, Murray Hippo, Jak, Daxter, Ratchet, Clank, Sam & Max, Rise Kujikawa, Homura Akemi, Sigma, Agent Smith, Mayuri Kurotsuchi, Teseo, the Embryon Tribe, XANA
  • Rivals: the Master Control Program, Gleeman Vox, The Borg Queen
  • Opposes: Ash Ketchum, Pikachu, Brock, Misty, Team Rocket
  • Believes that as he was programmed to create the perfect system, he will continue to do so by ridding it of its imperfection even if that means causing Genocide. He wishes to ensure that in the Pantheon as well even if it causes many casualties as to him, it is to be sure that any system can run at its maximum efficiency.
  • He has run into Sora and his friend Riku before as they attempted to stop him from achieving perfection and attempted to take Rinzler from him as Sora helped Tron in the past. Despite being a Disney Villain, Clu has no control over the Heartless. Not that it really matters, though, considering he's got control over the Nightmare Dream Eaters, with the Commantis being his signature one.
    • He has learned that his creator Kevin Flynn is in the Pantheon and is attempting to confront his "Father".
  • Clu is banned from the House of Technology as he has attempted to Rectify good A.I.s and robots of that house, including Tron. No one, especially Sora and Bentley, wants Tron to be reprogrammed back into Rinzler. Despite this, Clu is very determined to get back Rinzler, and is often seen trying to hack in. This was part of the reason why Tron and the Hacking Quintet formed the GUAG White Hats.
  • Many are attempting to find a way to seal Clu as it seems that damaging Clu is next to impossible, the only thing that could kill Clu is Reintegration with Kevin Flynn but that could destroy them both. However, the only two people that actually seem to terrify Clu are Sam & Max. Seeing as how they've once destroyed the internet in their world with a biological weapon, his fear isn't unfounded.
  • Anyone who threatens his goal for a perfect system is generally an enemy. Mayuri Kurotsuchi opposes it on principle due to loathing perfection, as he considers it a dead end. Teseo has also been added to Clu's enemies list, though for more important reasons: he has no problem trying to trash his plans in favor of his comrades' goals for creating a paradise for people like them. And he'd get a kick out of doing so. Teseo's power over physical matter and data makes him a serious threat to boot.
  • Considers the Embryon Tribe to be abominations, due to being digital people who were given organic bodies. Clu holds a more serious disgust towards XANA, however. As a program who seeks perfection and stability, XANA's continual evolution as a chaotic virtual network is anathema to him. Along with that, XANA has an aesthetic completely different from The Grid, and who has, through various methods, destroyed other virtual systems. As such, XANA is a serious and personally offensive threat to him.
  • He has heard of Superman's alternate self and wishes to bring him to the Pantheon with the help of Funny Valentine so they can perfect the Pantheon. While they didn't actually get to do that, the operation was a success.
  • Is currently letting other evil members drop their enemies into "The Grid Games", letting them play until they have to fight either him or the Commantis, which is usually a no-win situation. Prior to 2012, Rinzler served as one of the champions… until he was defeated and freed by Sora. Unfortunately, Gleeman Vox has been getting more business with these arena battles, since at least his arena games, DreadZone, is on television. Clu is quite angry with this. Especially because his only "Exterminator" has already escaped.
  • Has decided to work along side YHVH in his Regime as to him, YHVH is the one to bring Order and Perfection to The Pantheon that to him has always been flawed and imperfect. Despite his computerized existence, Clu's not joining the Grand United Alliance of Machines as Law takes precedent over Machine Supremacy in his eyes. Mainly it's to avoid Sigma's Maverick Virus or Agent Smith from ruining his envisioned "perfect system". He does get along with the Architect however, due to trying to create a perfect system.
  • There's been recent sightings of Penelope hanging out with Clu on his Throneship, implying that they are in a relationship, despite being different species (mouse and program, respectively). Bentley was said to be mortified by this news, though he believes that she's just using Clu to rebuild her reputation after her shocking betrayal caused everyone to cut ties with her. Because of this, Clu was dubbed an "enemy of the Cooper Gang" by both Sly and Bentley.
    • Bentley was right on the money. Penelope has since ditched Clu for Vox, and is dating Reactor for his money.
  • He would not want others bringing up the last moments of The Original Clu; he still has those moments in his memory and he does not like remembering those moments. After the MCP ascended, flashbacks of the original's deresolution became quite common for Clu. Homura Akemi has even used this against him as payback for Sora's battle with Tron and later derezzing the latter out of jealousy. Just hearing "I was waiting for this moment" is enough for Clu to suffer a panic attack, but at least he doesn't have to suffer from it too much, unlike Lady Tremaine.
  • He's rather interested by Perfect Cell, though Cell disagrees with Clu's ideas of perfection. When asked by Clu what his idea of perfection was, Cell naturally pointed to himself, to which Clu scoffed "of course you'd think that". He feels that the Borg at least has a better foundation of the concept of perfection in what they're trying to achieve, just not one he agrees on.
  • Steven Universe has been trying to convince Clu at least that his dash for perfection is an impossibility, hoping that he could get him to see the light as he accomplished with White Diamond, but Clu remains dismissive and believes he's naive. The idea that he is attempting an impossible task is an idea he is incapable of accepting.
  • Unbeknownst to Clu, Clockwerk has been constantly visiting The Grid, seeing that Clu's pure hatred towards Kevin Flynn and Sora is quite tasty for him. Lady Tremaine probably is the only one to be tastier.
  • Despite their antagonism, Flynn and Clu agree that they need to keep Ash Ketchum, his Pikachu, Misty, Brock, and Team Rocket out of The Grid, out of fear of another "Seizure Episode".

    Malthael 
Malthael, Unholy Opposer of Free Will (Archangel of Wisdom (formerly), Aspect of Death, Silent Angel, Angel of Death, Architect of the Eternal Conflict, The Guardian, The Reaper, Reaper of Souls)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/malthael_0.jpg
  • Greater God (Bordering Overdeity when fused with the Black Soulstone)
  • Symbol: A pair of Shotels
  • Theme Song: Malthael's theme
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil (Formerly Lawful Neutral)
  • Portfolio: Initially the Leader of the Angiris Council until his eventual betrayal, Dual Wields a pair of Shotels, Evil Is Hammy, Evil Sounds Deep, Fallen Angel, In the Hood, Plans to destroy humanity, Knight Templar, Teleport Spam, Wants to end the Eternal Conflict at all costs, Consuming Souls, The Grim Reaper
  • Domains: Wisdom (Formerly), Death, Destruction, Free Will, Fallen Angels
  • Heralds: The Lesser Angels of Death and the Legion of the Dead
  • Allies: YHVH, Thanatos, Dhuum, The Fiends
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Darkseid
  • Enemies:
  • Unconventional Alliance: Moon Man
  • Formerly known as the Archangel of Wisdom, Malthael was a respected figure among the angels. However, after he witnessed how a human embraced evil in such a destructive way that he resolved that humanity was an abomination that must be destroyed. Eventually becoming the aspect of death, Malthael resolved that after the defeat of the demon lords, humanity was the last enemy that had to be dealt with in order to end the Eternal Conflict.
    • And how he came to this conclusion? He believes that because humans are free to choose how they want to be, then they are more likely to choose evil over good. Not only that, he actually believes that "Freedom" is something that nobody should ever choose by themselves.
  • After hearing of his ascension, both Tyrael and Auriel were not happy that Malthael was back and ready to "destroy all traces of evil" as he calls it. Tyrael went as far as recruiting the Nephalems in hope of fighting the Fallen Angel before he does a lot of harm.
    • However, it looks like Malthael has lost possession of the black soulstone after he was defeated, meaning that the demonic evils that were sealed inside the stone were freed shortly after his death. Now that he is in the pantheon, Malthael is clearly not happy that Diablo is out doing as he pleases, and is even considering taking him down himself.
  • Initially, Darkseid thought that Malthael would be a great ally in his efforts to eliminate free will, but the Fallen Archangel doesn't hold the same ideas as he does. For once, he thinks that doing that would be better for everyone while Darkseid clearly has different objectives in mind.
  • Being the Archangel of Death, Malthael is facing quite the tough competition when it comes to who gets to be the Pantheon's Grim Reaper. However, there are other more benevolent reapers, such as Lord Death, that think he has gone over the edge and needs to be stopped.
  • Is completely annoyed by how death works in the Pantheon, as it makes his job very difficult. He is not the only one with this sentiment, as both Thanatos and Dhuum share the same objectives. The three of them are planning to bring eternal death to everyone in the Pantheon, and this time, no one is escaping death for real.
  • Not seen in a very good light by the ascended angels, with most of the more benevolent angels and even some of the more Knight Templar ones think he has gone too far. Malthael is especially at odds with Michael since in the past they both weren't that different from one another
  • The alliance between angels and demons is something that he considers the most unforgivable act any angel would dare to do, as such union ended up creating humanity in Sanctuart. While he initially abstained from deciding the fate of humanity (unlike his fellow angel Imperius), he later decided to eradicate humanity by himself. He gets even more angry at Nephilim, considering them an abomination of nature that shouldn't even exist.
    • Of course, this belief had made Malthael clash with Seraph Lamington, who believes that Angels and Demons can coexist in peace and he personally knows pure-hearted demons. Malthael considers the Seraph a weak excuse of an angel.
    • He also had come into conflict with the angel Irina Shidou and the former exorcist turned demon Xenovia Quarta, who both hold an unbreakable friendship. He was almost about to execute both when Michael interfered and drove Malthael away. The Archangel of Death clearly is not going to tolerate any of these relationships any longer.
  • Not very fond of the mortal known as Reaper, who dresses as a dark figure and literally calls himself "The Angel of Death". Malthael doesn't appreciate that a mere mortal is ripping him off and he is going to teach him what real "reaping" is about.
    • Apparently, there is another mortal by the name of Hanzo Shimada who is said to sound just like him. But Malthael himself has no time for another human insect to even care.
  • One day, he was approached by the infamous Moon Man, who wanted to join Malthael's cause. Apparently, he would be happy if he is allowed to annihilate minorities as he calls.
  • He has the power to drain the soul and life essence of anyone that dare oppose him. He particularly despises Shadow Fiend and Shang Tsung, who share said power with him (With the former being a demon not helping at all).
  • Found out about the existence of The Nexus and already has plans for it after he successfully arrives. For one, he was a bit shocked to see that humans that reside there didn't have demon taint unlike before (though somehow the Nephalems made it). But he steels himself anyway because he does find a lot more demon-tainted beings there, particularly Orcs.
  • "No one can stop death".

    War the Nephilim 
War, God of Cleared Names (Horseman, The Red Rider, Rider of the Red Horse)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/war.jpg
Click to see War's Chaos Form 
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A stylized horse head (shared with his siblings), The mark on his forehead (personally his)
  • Theme Song: Darksiders Theme, War's Theme, Death VS War (Shared with Death)
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (Absolute loyalty to his siblings)
  • Portfolio: Clearing his name, Red Horseman of the Apocalypse, Disabled and deep-voiced badassery, Prosthetic arms that pack a punch, Awesome hoods, Luminescent featureless eyes, Relishing battle, Brilliant battle-strategy, Chaoseater wielded one-handed, Being the youngest but largest sibling, Being insanely tough and nigh-unstoppable, CHAOS, Honorable to a fault, Great destruction, Armaments of war, Slow but immensely strong, Blade Geysers, The Red Horse (Ruin)
  • Domains: Balance, Chaos, Combat, Destruction, Honor, Revenge, War
  • Heralds: Fury and Strife.
  • Allies: His brother Death, Archer, Bahamut, Frisk, Papyrus, Sans, Toriel, Asgore Dreemurr, Roger Thornhill
  • Opposed by: The entire Imperium of Man, other deities who adore/protect humanity, Yuji Sakai
  • Rivals: Dante, Nero, Gaara, Tokugawa Ieyasu, Akihiko Sanada, Illidan Stormrage, Kain Highwind, Undyne, Kratos, Ares
  • Respects: His brother Death, Asura, Frisk
  • At Arm's Length: Luke Skywalker, Skips, The Greater Fiends
  • Complicated Relationships: The Nephalems, Akeno Himejima, Sicily
  • Conflicting Opinion: Lucifer, Ren Hakuryuu, Enrico Pucci, Shinji Ikari
  • Enemies: All who threaten Creation, Death (Final Destination), War the Embodiment, Tiamat, The Joker, Dhuum The Angel and Demon sub-houses - and EVERY angel and demon across the Pantheon, YHVH
  • After much time, and undertaking a quest that The Charred Council had no intention of rewarding with a pardon, one which he ultimately only succeeded in by giving his life, War was granted a place in the Pantheon as the ultimate scion of those who clear their name of wrongdoing. It should be noted that the reason he was chosen above most others is that even his older brother, Death, went to extreme lengths to prove him innocent, which ultimately culminated in the Executioner resurrecting humanity to erase the alleged crime he was punished for.
  • One of the first few deities War met upon his ascension was the enigmatic Servant who prefers to be called Archer, one who has shared his position of enforcer (though War works on a much larger scale). That they sound similar and have similar attitudes (that is, being rather serious and brooding at times) only makes things more interesting.
  • Lucifer is a rather polarizing individual, especially with regards to War's temperament. On the one hand, they both strive for chaos and allowing choice... on the other hand, however, War is just as likely to treat someone with fairness as he is to be ruthlessly brutal.
    War: "Do not be deceived by my actions, Lightbringer. I serve the balance, and the chaos and mayhem I cause is for the sake of keeping tyranny and oppression in check."
    • For that matter, a great many of the deities known to have averted or cut short Armageddon are apprehensive of him regardless of his innocence. Yuji Sakai lamented that he was not able to cancel the End War, though War has repeatedly reassured the boy that his End War was unavoidable. Shinji Ikari doesn't like him much, though he does admit knowing the feeling of being blamed for causing the end of the world and humanity (even if it IS rebooted and he's not always aware of the exact details).
  • When a certain other horseman sharing his title sought him out and attempted to manipulate him, said horseman was surprised to find that War was not susceptible to his influence. The former was then sent packing by the latter, who would have slain him if not for the interference of Death the Nephilim. War the Nephilim despises any who make use of underhanded tactics, such as what War the Embodiment employed, and has made it clear that things will not be pretty if they ever crossed paths again.
    • From then on everyone in the Pantheon has taken to calling this one "War the Nephilim", which he doesn't seem to mind much, if at all.
    • He also has an odd rivalry with Kratos, the God of War, and Ares, The Most Reviled War God, as he is also a being that represents war. War the Nephilim, however, insists that he is more of an exceptionally talented combatant than an embodiment of conflict though that doesn't stop him from taking them on.
    War: "The God of War and the Much Despised War God are very satisfying opponents. Even Chaoseater is eager to face them again and again."
  • The Sentient Cosmic Force known as Death has it out for him due to him having cheated death not once, not twice, but 'three times in his lifetime. Even being the younger sibling of one of its aspects, the God of Damage-Negating Mobility, is not enough to spare him from being on its/his list. War doesn't really care about this, instead wishing only to act in accordance with the Cosmic Balance.
    War: "I serve The Balance. If Death wishes to take my life to that end then it is welcomed to try."
  • He is also at odds with Dhuum, as he has cheated death repeatedly. Though they weren't all by his own intent. The Inevitable Death respects him as he does his brother, but is still intent on making him meet his maker.
    Dhuum: "Dhuum doesn't care if brother Death saved him! The Inevitable Death comes for him!"
    War: (With a coy smirk) "Dhuum will come, and he will try."
  • Upon learning that there was a Tiamat in the Pantheon, War went to investigate. He was surprised to find not a Bat Queen but a Goddess of Evil Dragons, and promptly challenged her with the intention of slaying her. He was barely unable to defeat her, though he did earn the respect and blessing of the God of Good Dragons for this endeavor. He intends to challenge her again anyway. His brother, Death, is not amused.
  • He has become extremely wary of Luke Skywalker and Skips due to them sounding very similar to The Watcher that tormented him while he was under The Charred Council's control. The Joker, too, sounds similar but has earned War's genuine enmity for being twisted and depraved unlike the previous two.
  • Similarly to his brother, Death, War isn't on the best of terms with the various Nephilim due to his part in the eradication of his own brethren. However, unlike Death, War isn't outright hated by them and he even bears most of them no ill will so long as they aren't trying to wipe out everything else in the multiverse.
    • He is actually respectful and considerate to Akeno Himejima of The Occult Research Club, despite the fact that she would rather have nothing to do with him. He is fine with this, as he has more pressing matters to attend to. Like getting back at Tiamat for his defeat at her claws.
  • Furthermore, many deities who are fond of or sworn to stand by humanity have denounced War as an enemy of mankind. Frisk is an exception, as they have befriended him and have earned his respect for their utter determination. This friendship has also made him an ally of The Skeleton Brothers, the child's adoptive mother, the formerly underground monster king, and even earned him a friendly rival in the former captain of the royal guard of the previously mentioned former king. The Emperor of Mankind has absolutely no love for him and has commanded the entire Imperium of Man to attack him on sight.
    War: (With a confident smile) "I look forward to seeing what The Third Kingdom is truly capable of."
  • Many deities who were falsely accused of wrongdoings, however, regard him with total empathy. Roger Thornhill is one such deity, though War doesn't really have an opinion of him.
  • As he is currently in prime form to take on all celestial and infernal beings, he is an enemy of EVERY angel and demon across the Pantheon.
    • Malthael, The Silent Angel, is a particularly despised adversary, as War cannot abide by his crusade against free will.
    War: "The Creator did not want mindless puppets, incapable of thinking for themselves!"
    • There are a few examples that he has deemed to be tolerable, whom he would only fight if absolutely necessary. The angel Flonne he has deemed as mostly harmless if far too obsessed with the concept of love. The Occult Research Club (Rias Gremory, Akeno Himejima, Koneko Toujou, Yuuto Kiba, Asia Argento, Xenovia Quarta, Irina Shidou, Issei Hyoudou) proved themselves worthy of both his respect and consideration — the latter of which only meaning he will refrain from antagonizing them — as they genuinely wish to establish harmony/peace between the denizens of the heavens and the hells.
  • Contrary to popular belief, he does NOT have a positive opinion of The Great Will, YHVH. When questioned about why he would ever oppose The Lord, he will only say the following:
    War: "The Great Will is NOT The Creator. His only aim is for a world dominated by his law only."
    • He's not actually sure how to feel about one of YHVH's devout followers, Enrico Pucci. The priest DID cause the end of his world, though he did force it to be rebooted into one which he would prefer - there was a balance in that action. His belief in YHVH, however, is a point of contention for the Nephilim. War wants to respect him, but he can't condone those whom he aids.
  • Unexpectedly, he has become sympathetic to Ren Hakuryuu, in whom he can see his own struggles with family, power, and even friendships. He was even empathetic to the young warrior's motivation, which mirrored his own reasoning during his quest to clear his name. In fact, they would be friends if not for their vastly different goals.
    War: "Sometimes duty must be cast aside to do what must be done. But I cannot allow anyone to destroy all of Creation."
  • Also has a place in the House of Popularity

    Yamato Hotsuin 
Yamato Hotsuin, God of Utopia at Any Cost (The Chief of JP's)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yamato_hotsuin.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The JP's logo.
  • Theme Song: Battle of the Brave
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral, with a dash of Lawful Good when Hibiki Kuze is involved.
  • Portfolio: Utopia Justifies the Means, A Child Shall Lead Them, Asskicking Equals Authority, Benevolent Boss, Comes Great Responsibility, The Dreaded, Genius Bruiser, Glass Cannon, Sergeant Rock, Not exactly a Social Darwinist, Super Speed, Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?, The power of The Dragon Stream, Crazy Jealous for Hibiki Kuze
  • Domains: Strength, Magic, Demon and Monster hunting, Secret Organizations, Ambition, Leadership
  • Heralds: Japan Meteorological Agency - Geomagnetism Research Department, a.k.a. JP's (specific followers: Makoto Sako, Keita Wakui, Fumi Kanno)
  • Followers: Homura Taishi, Red Eye, Princess Gaia/Nightmare Whisper, Ishmael, Livia Drusilla, Lord Henry Blackwood, Mustapha Mond, Mir, Walhart
  • Allies: Alcor, Hibiki Kuze, Sam and Dean Winchester, Light Yagami, The Men in Black, The Monster Hunters
  • Enemies: The Administrators, Arceus, Magneto, Charles zi Britannia, Light Yagami, Kyubey, Sheev Palpatine, Darkseid, Big Brother, Lucemon
  • Respects: Lelouch vi Brittania, Raoh, Klaus Wulfenbach, Dartz,
  • Pities: Sartorius, Doctor Doom
  • Opposes: The Grand United Alliance of Law and Grand United Alliance of Chaos
  • Opposed by: Several proud Overdeities, especially YHVH.
  • Yamato is a force to be reckoned with, being both incredibly strong and magically powerful, to the point where he could kill Administrators and their Swords with either his bare hands or just his mind, and on top of that, he has the Dragon Stream, a conduit of unbelievable magic power that can also increase his speed.
  • The Four Prime Factors also increase his power to ridiculous levels; Heat and Time power up his magic, Gravity boosts his physical strength even further, and Space lets him move long distances in the blink of an eye.
  • His ultimate goal is to create a world where everyone gets exactly what they deserve, with the strong leading the weak and no one being able to attain an unfair advantage over anyone else through birth, wealth, or treachery. In at least one timeline, he successfully achieves this dream, but this Yamato is not from there. However, after the attack of the Triangulum, he resolved to work for the good of everyone, and although he still believes in stratification based off of merit, and will not hesitate to kill in order to achieve his goals, strives to give everyone a chance to prove themselves.
  • He was shocked to find that Canopus and his servants had ascended, believing their influence to have ended after he and the rest of the cast of Devil Survivor 2 destroyed Canopus and freed the Earth, and seeks to cast them down once again.
    • Arcturus especially is attempting to have Yamato killed, because only the Dragon Stream can harm it, but so far Yamato has defeated everything sent after him.
  • Supports Light Yagami in his mission to kill criminals and villains, although he has some misgivings about not giving them a chance to prove they can be useful to society.
  • Arceus reminds him of Polaris, ruling his world through the Mythical Pokémon, and he says that if the population needs Arceus's guidance to prosper, it does not deserve that prosperity. Arceus strenuously disagrees.
  • Approves of Sam and Dean Winchester going against every big nasty that threatens their earth, as well as admiring their resolve and ingenuity when facing down beings much stronger than them.
  • The Men in Black admire his leadership of JP's, and although he has declined to become Agent Y, they still work together effectively against strange threats.
  • Lucifer once approached him with an offer to join the GUAC, and got a face full of Dragon Stream for his trouble. Yamato agrees with his philosophy up to a point, but disagrees with the extremeness of his Social Darwinism and insists that strict order is absolutely necessary for a strong society to function.
    • He once asked YHVH how he could advocate equality while insisting that he is superior to all others, and rather than dignifyying him with a response, YHVH hit him with "divine" lightning and warned him not to challenge the Great Will again.
    • When Cosmos asked him why he is Neutral instead of siding with Good, he asked if she would sacrifice a populated city for a strategic advantage. The GUAG has not contacted him since.
      • That said, he can be convinced to help them out if fellow demon tamer Hibiki (one of few powerful non-Lawful deities Yamato is pleased to see) convinces him to do so, but Yamato's "loyalty" will only extend to him. Thanks to Hibiki, he's learned a bit more on empathy, and even got a favorite food in the form of takoyaki. That said, there are those who believe Yamato's fascination with him is... more than just friends, bordering on possible jealousy.
    • For obvious reasons, neither Melkor nor Nekron made any attempts on convincing Yamato, as his philosophy goes against theirs right from the start.
  • Calls the Social Darwinism of Magneto and Charles zi Britannia hypocritical, as they have marked advantages in their supernatural abilities and are unlikely to actually be superior to those they look down upon. Yamato says that he has earned everything he has for himself, and although he comes from a wealthy family, said family tested him to make sure he was worthy before allowing him to lead JP's. Or so he claims.
  • Yamato is disappointed with how far Light Yagami has fallen in his desire to make the world a better place to being a simple crazy supernatural Serial Killer.
  • When he is bored, he joins the Monster Hunters on a hunt, leading to mutual respect and camaraderie. He is attempting to form a new branch of JP's in the Pantheon, and many of his first recruits are expected to be Monster Hunters.
  • His opposite number as god of Dystopia Justifies the Means, Darkseid, may be stronger than Yamato, but he is working on a plan to render himself invulnerable to the Omega Beams.
  • He often critically examines some of the Overdeities. They have been annoyed with his judgments on their performance, and although a few have taken his advice and become stronger or more influential, most agree that he shouldn't meddle in the affairs of his superiors. When they say this to him, he smiles knowingly and walks off. YHVH especially is watching him closely to make sure he doesn't try to rise any farther than he already is.
  • While Kyubey actually does have well-meaning intentions, Yamato hates him just like anybody else because humanity is still being exploited in doing so. His opinions on Homura is just as dim, especially as she hijacked an Overdeity's (Madoka's) powers just so she can live a life of comfort, even if she makes herself the devil in the process, which he sees as incredibly selfish.

Intermediate Gods

    Meliodas 
Meliodas, The Obstruction Pacifistic God (Dragon's Sin of Wrath, Meliodaz, Lord Meliodas, Captain, Leader of the Ten Commandments. )
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nanatsumeliodasanime_9249.png
  • Theme Song: Perfect Time
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Dragon's Sin Tattoo
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good, Lawful Evil in the Ten Commandments.
  • Portfolio: The Atoner, A Father to His Men, Afraid of Their Own Strength, Attack Reflector, Authority Equals Asskicking, Beware the Nice Ones, Broken Ace, Casting a Shadow, Chivalrous Pervert, Lethal Chef, Lovable Sex Maniac, Made of Iron, Obstructionist Pacifist, Older Than He Looks, Hellblaze, Super-Powered Evil Side.
  • Domain: Fighting, Weapons, Strength, Good, Demons
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Ten Commandments, Mard Geer, Zeref, Gul'dan, Shinnok, Ren Gyokuen, Satan, The Beast, Fortinbras, Ghirahim, Corset
  • Conflicting Opinion On: Scanty and Kneesocks, Stocking Anarchy?, Vali Lucifer
  • Meliodas caught the initial interest of the Pantheon due to once destroying an entire kingdom single-handedly, but the pantheon lost track of him when he and his group, the Seven Deadly Sins, disappeared. He was found again after his battle with Great Holy Knight Hendrickson. Unfortunately, his greater enemies being the demon clans' elite would sooner or later arrive in the Pantheon. He would need to settle the score with his former allies eventually.
  • Meliodas's main ability, Full Counter, bounces any attack with special properties back at the user with even more power than there initially was. He also can use Counter Vanish which could have made him an enemy of several magical gods if not for his kind nature. This also tends to be an issue as his pacifism leads to everyone else from his group of friends getting into trouble.
  • Due to being a bartender, he is on good terms with some of the members of the House of Food, where he can be seen sometimes.
  • Unsurprisingly, he's made good friends with Kuoh Academy's Occult Research Club on the grounds of him being a good-aligned Devil. He gets along especially fine with Issei, especially since not only he's got an oddly similar-sounding voice as his, but his dragon bloodline reminds him of his past and title. He also sympathized with Kiba for his difficult childhood, as well as Asia for reminding him a lot of Elizabeth. He wishes he could also befriend Issei's main rival, Vali Lucifer, but the catch is that he keeps mistaking his advances for fighting challenges.
  • Although he is part Demon, he is most certainly against the Demon Clan of his world, this has put him at odds with most demons. There are exceptions to this of course like Illyana who Meliodas can sympathize with as they both have pasts they want to move on from. He does not let his demonic nature control him which she admires about him.
    • Despite hating Corset for his actions he does admit Scanty and Kneesocks are two demons he does not hate. It could be their style, voice, RRRRRRURUS, or most likely demonic looks which he can appreciate. This, however, didn't stop Meliodas from becoming good friends with Garterbelt, with whom he sympathizes for his brutal past life. Panty has also been rather... Interested on getting to know Meliodas better.
  • He gets along well enough with Natsu to even visit his world once. They act like they have known each other for years. Meliodas can't help, but feel like there is something else to Natsu that's nothing like the fire of a Dragon. It reminds him of his past, but he does not know what this feeling could be or be aware of the fact they are both demons.
  • When he is frustrated, some people notice him speaking in an Irish accent and notice him offering potatoes and cocaine at his bar.
  • Lucy was rather fond of Meliodas considering him like a brother to Natsu. Then he sneaked into her temple with Natsu which lead to getting a Lucy kick in the face.
  • Naturally he's been made a personal enemy of Mard Geer Tartaros. He is disgusted one of his own kind would throw away his demonic nature to side with mankind. The following exchange happened...
    Who are you? Mardi Gras? Oh, so you're the Underworld King then. Second-in-command of Tartaros a guild of demons. You remind me of some people or rather demons I know, but I should give you a warning don't overlook mankind. Continue to act like a jackass here and I will be greeting you again, but not alone that will be for sure so keep your ass in that chair!
  • He's also come into contact with Zeref who seemed more friendly than Mard Geer. Zeref was surprised to learn Meliodas is a demon despite his personality and appearance. Meliodas was not fond of explaining his past, but Zeref was willing to listen. Still, the Sin of Wrath does not appreciate the black mage's hatred of humans not to mention the Etherious demons he created.
  • Aladdin was more than pleased to learn about Meliodas ascending into the pantheon. They tend to speak about their friends, previous battles, or the value and weight of a female's figure. Morgiana could stare in silence at their interactions together.
  • Gul'dan is one of the few gods Meliodas despises being forced to obey commands like a slave. He will admit the warlock is a good musician, but he would love nothing more than to shove his sax down his throat.
  • He's gotten along with Shirou, Eren, Flynn, and Kirito as he noticed all four of them had a similar kind of voice. Eren and Flynn, in particular, noticed they have the same voice in another language as well.
  • He heard about Merlin being in the pantheon and went to find his comrade from the Seven Deadly Sins. Instead, he finds a guy looking nothing like the Merlin he knew from his world. Despite this, he gets along with the other Merlin impressed by his magical abilities... until he saw the Boar's Sin of Gluttony wave at him with her usual smirk.

  • Interested in: Alex Mercer
  • Conflicting Opinion: Kaworu Nagisa
  • Opposed by: Madoka Kaname, Homura Akemi
  • Known simply as Yuu, he is the envoy of Da’ath, an ancient organization that existed for centuries. He and his group attempted to bring forth the Fourth Apocalpyse, which consist of two individuals they call "Adam and Eve" which are tasked to rebuild humanity with the best genes, but their plans were thwarted when Shu destroyed the Apocalypse Virus for good. Da'ath has since then dissapeared without a trace, but Yuu has learned of the existance of the pantheon and decided to ascend on behalf of his group.
  • Neither Shu nor Inori were too happy about Yuu's ascension, as that meant that their worst enemies now had an opportunity to start the apocalypse again, but in the pantheon. However, Yuu never thought that Mana would refuse to return to her role as Eve and has noticed that the influence of the virus has faded overtime. Worse, Mana still has the powers of the Virus within her, but the intervention of the GUAG plus Mana's own disinterest in Da'ath's plans means that Yuu is going to have a lot of work to do if he wants humanity to evolve in the pantheon.
  • Yuu is also capable of extracting voids from peoples bodies, meaning that he can be dangerous to anyone 17 or younger. He can also teleport, so be careful.
  • People have said that Da'ath is similar to other ancient conspiracies like SEELE or the Geass order. Neither the EVA children nor Lelouch are very fond of the nature of Yuu.
    • The former especially have a beef with them given the similarities he has with Kaworu, who Yuu is intrigued to know about his nature as an angel. He also has allied himself with Keel Lorenz, so both SEELE and Da'ath can cooperate into a common goal.
  • Yuu has also been in contact with the Incubators due to their similar views of mankind. That also made him a target for both Madoka and Homura, especially the latter since he fears that he might try to make Madoka another potential Eve.
  • Has heard of Ragyo Kiryuin and her attempt at giving earth to the Life Fibers. Yuu finds that aspect of human evolution through the life fibers to be fascinating and has formed a partnership with Ragyo in order to fin more about the true nature of the Life Fibers. He also has considered the possible fusion of Life Fibers and the apocalypse virus, which has put both Ryuko and Satsuki on edge as to what could happen if he went with his plan.
  • Yuu's organization views Kouta and Mai as a threat, with them being the Man and Woman of the Beginning who were potential threats of interfering his Adam and Eve Plot.
  • On other attemps to find another alternative for the evolution of mankind, he stumbled upon the Xel'naga Amon. Yuu has heard about how he created both the Zerg and the Protoss with the only mean to create a perfect race out of the two. Of course, he hasn't quite allied himself with the alien given his Chaotic nature, but has considered him for a secret plan of his.
  • Another evolution idea came in the form of Mesogog. However, Yuu isn't quite sure about returning to the prehistoric times as Mesogog wants, but still considers him a valuable asset for a later time.
  • Given about his similarities with Shuichiro Keido, Yuu has approached Ryoma Sengoku in order to strike a deal with him about the potential development of an artificial Kamen Rider powered by the Apocalypse Virus. Sengoku was interested in the deal, but only if Da'ath were to take part in SHOCKER and give a sample of the Apocalypse Virus to the organization. Rumours said that both parties agreed on an alliance.
    • The only problem? The apocalypse virus only resides within Mana, and since she has no interest in being the pawn of Da'ath again, there is no secure way to getting the virus back. Sengoku has suggested kidnapping her but that would prove dangerous since she still has the power of the virus and would not doubt in using it against them should the provoke her.
  • In the hopes of trying to find an alternative to Mana, Yuu learned about an ally of her that also was the embodiment of a virus, Alex Mercer. Although he is not sure about how to approach Mercer since he is much more dangerous than Mana plus his chaotic nature would prove troublesome for Da'ath. Not to mention, he has been interested in taking the Apocalypse Virus for himself.

Claire Bennet, Goddess of People Who, Oddly, Don't Want Superpowers (Claire-Bear, Claire G. Petrelli, Vivian Lewis, Claire Butler, Bonnie Monaco, Alice Shaw)

  • Domain: Healing, Good
  • High Priestess: Daphne Powell
  • Allies: Kim Possible, Juliet Starling, Buffy Summers, Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott
  • Enemies: Libby Chessler, Jason Voorhees, Slade Wilson/Deathstroke
  • Opposes: Erik Lensherr/Magneto, Scott Summers/Cyclops
  • Annoyed by: Veigue Lungberg
  • Fears: Lucy
  • Odd Friendship with: Wade Wilson/Deadpool
  • Despite not wanting superpowers and that being reason why she ascended in the first place, she doesn't seem to mind being a goddess. Was the subject of a manhunt from evil forces to use her abilities for their own gain. She has long gotten past that stage of her life
    • Her story in the mortal world ended with a massive explosion that killed hundreds of people. Although she survived the blast, she was pronounced dead after giving birth to twins. Further research revealed that one of them could siphon powers, which happened at a horrible time for her.
  • Is glad to have a number of benevolent cheerleading gods in the Pantheon, sponsoring many of the ones that has ascended:
    • Buffy has been a long time friend of Claire. Not surprising as the two girls share their grievances with their duties. Claire usually manages to get Buffy back up and face her responsibilities.
    • Along with Buffy, she tried to get either Kim Possible or Juliet Starling for the title of Divine Cheerleader. When that failed, she and Buffy helped find titles for both characters. Juliet and Kim were highly grateful for their assistance.
    • The reason the exchange failed was due to the workings of Libby Chessler, who successfully vouched for a cheerleader more in line with her personality. She detested her from the start as her followers often took the brunt of bullying from Libby's, but that only caused Claire to hate her even more.
  • Even after Magneto made a Heel–Face Turn, Claire stands to oppose him. Why? Because she gets irritated by people who want to force people to choose sides, when many just don't have a strong enough opinion to do so. The same goes to Cyclops in his later years. She is particularly disdainful of such crises that has been affecting superheroes.
    • Of course many give her flack for being a hypocrite, pointing out that she was the one that revealed the existence of evolved humans to her world. In her defense, those were under unique circumstances.
  • There was a time where she would always here someone shouting her name in the House of Quirks. It got to the point where she stormed into the temple to give the man a piece of her mind. Veigue Lungberg perked up, thinking it was her long lost girlfriend returning. Instead, he found an angry blonde girl shouting at him for saying her name one too many times. He apologized, promising not to say her name as often.
  • While she was on her way back to her temple, she was grabbed from behind and brutally stabbed multiple times. Thankfully, her powers allowed her to heal from that ordeal rather quickly. She ignored the circumstances and moved on... only for the same thing to happen the very next day. That's when she went to the House of Knowledge to help investigate. Some sleuthing concluded that she is being stalked by Jason Voorhees. It's likely that he considers her to be a Final Girl, an archetype he vehemently hates. The best way to solve this was to get the help from Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott and their various followers. After some tips, Claire managed to turn the tables on her opponent, leading him right to a firing squad headed by Judge Dredd. Jason's body was destroyed, though it's likely he will appear once more. After thanking the girls, she offered to sleep over at their house for the night. And thus a wonderful friendship was born.
  • Stays as far away from Lucy's temple as possible, given that one of her most prominent followers hunted her down for years, hoping to steal her powers. He succeeded, though he later had a change of heart.
  • Once found herself in the middle of a fight between Deadpool and Deathstroke. Meaning, her body was skewered in half by a sword slash from Deathstroke when Deadpool got out of the way, even though it didn't even get to half her torso. She ended up growing her lower half back in about 20 minutes, at which point Deathstroke realized she was one of the targets he signed a contract on. Deadpool seemed to recognize her too and decided to defend her, and then she stepped in to help the Merc with a Mouth, so Slade decided to fall back for the time being. And then DP said this.
    Deadpool: Okay, I know we healing factor types tend to get injured, our parts cut off, and all that stuff a lot more often than the normies do, but your body is just ridiculously weak. That thing didn't go through enough of you to take you apart like that. What gives?

  • Enemies: Ganondorf, Moby Dick, Cia, The Enclave, Big Brother, Kraken, Tamatoa
  • Opposed: King Harkinian, Khan Noonien Singh
  • King Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule was the last king of the old Kingdom of Hyrule that witnessed Ganondorf's bloody return and the flooding by the Goddesses. When Ganondorf broke the seal and wreak havoc on the flooded world, the King assumed the form of the King of Red Lions to search for the Hero and his descendant. In the final battle, Ganondorf assembled the Triforce but before he could make his wish, King Hyrule touched the ancient relic and wished for the destruction of Hyrule and stayed behind, alongside the stone statue of Ganondorf, so that the new world can have a future.
  • While he does appears in his original form, he would assume his form as the King of Red Lions, a boat that let Link sail through the Great Sea, due to his original form being bound to Hyrule itself.
    • The King of Red Lions is often spotted during a Smash tournament in the Great Sea, providing another platform from the waves.
    • He has some weird expressions when meeting the Fleet Girls, in which these girls are supposed to be ships.
  • Though Ganondorf is his enemy and stopped him from conquering Hyrule by washing away by the Flood, he admits that he is just like him, wanting Hyrule to rise from the waves of the Great Sea and its greatness restored based on nostalgia of the old world. Even then, he admits that holding onto the memories of the past will do no good in moving onto the future, hence his wish to destroy Hyrule forever.
    • He got alone with Picard, who understood the need to let go of the past and move on. At the same time, the King opposes Khan Noonien Singh because of his quest to regain his former glory led him on a misguided vendetta against James T. Kirk, making him no better than Ganondorf.
  • He heard about another King of Hyrule in the Pantheon, in which he doesn't seems to have expected or was even amused. Like everyone else in his universe, he pretends that the King doesn't exist with insistent that he is the only true king in Hyrule. Still, he is greatly annoyed with people asking him what's for dinner or even if his ship will set sail in the morning, even though he was a ship for a time.
  • He doesn't agree with Captain Ahab's unworthwhile vengeance against the whale Moby Dick. With that said, he agreed that Moby Dick is a dangerous creature that attacks humans without warning and he has his fair share of sea monsters in the Great Sea.
  • He disapproves of the Enclave and their attempt in rebuilding the glory of America after being nuked to hell and back. As terrible as the wasteland is, their goals never helped the state of it all either. Mr. House, on the other hand, whole-heartedly agrees with the King, having personally sneer at people clinging to old world values like democracy... despite himself being a living, breathing relic of the old America. House is pretty attached to Vegas and even civilized the tribe living out to be the reflection of people from back then.
  • As a king who wants the best for his people, he does not like Big Brother and how he created a dystopia world as its ruler, while he founded a utopia for the future of his people.

  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Baine Bloodhoof
  • Enemies: Mordremoth, Garrosh Hellscream
  • Opposes: Apocalypse, Ares, War the Horseman, Lord Tirek
  • Good Counterpart to: Flowey
  • Once a proud warrior who fought humans, centaur sage Ventari grew to abhor the violence engulfing the centaurs and humans. Escaping to the south to avoid conflicts, he met and befriended the human Ronan, and together they planted the Pale Tree and founded a sanctuary of peace for all races seeking it.
    • Though Ventari has passed on, his legacy has made an impact on the Pale Tree and the Sylvari, who now (With some exceptions) hold his views and teachings written on his tablet in high regard. So strong is Ventari's legend, that Revenants can invoke him in the form of the Legendary Centaur Stance, granting them access to purely supportive abilities.
    • When Mordremoth learned that Ventari is the reason why most of the Sylvari didn't immediately join him, the elder dragon has made sure to remember to kill Ventari when the opportunity arises.
  • Gets along with fellow centaurs Chiron and Centorea, especially the former as they're both wise centaurs who're different from their more bloodthirsty brethren. However, Ventari doesn't get along with Lord Tirek for obvious reasons.
  • Refuses to participate in the wars between the Grand United Alliances, and will seek refuge to his temple during their battles.
  • Because of his experience and beliefs, Ventari naturally opposes malevolent pro-war deities like Apocalypse, War the Horseman and Ares.
  • Gets along with Asgore Dreemurr, as they're both peaceful monsters by nature. However, Ventari did not hesitate to call him out on promising the underground denizens with false hope when he made his declaration to annihilate humanity in a moment of grief. With that said, they're still allies.
  • Quite fond of Frisk as their pacifism goes well with his ideals, and they both have experiences with Interspecies Friendship.
  • Ventari's peaceful nature did not sit well with Flowey, who tried to provoke him with a Breaking Speech. To Flowey's annoyance though, Ventari claimed that his experience trumps Flowey's and decided to just ignore the flower. However, the centaur feels uneasy about Flowey's alliance with Mordremoth.
  • Ventari reminds Malfurion Stormrage and Tyrande Whisperwind of Cenarius, who could also be described as a peaceful centaur. The difference is that Cenarius wouldn't hesitate to go berserk if someone threatened nature.
  • Ventari wants peace. Garrosh Hellscream wants war. To the surprise of nobody, they don't get along. At all.
  • Interestingly, Baine Bloodhood does not trust Ventari's claims of being peaceful. After all, he and the Tauren has had many problems with the centaurs of Azeroth, and he finds it hard to believe that one centaur of the warlike centaurs of Tyria would desire peace instead. Ventari actually does not blame him for being on the cautious side, though he is hopeful that Baine would eventually come to realize that he genuinely means well.
  • Naturally gets along with fellow pacifists Himura Kenshin, Meliodas, Mamori Tokonome, Iji Kataiser, and Frisk.
  • Made allies with Charles Xavier, as he too wants peace between two people (Humans and Mutants in Professor X's case).
  • "The outside world is a violent place, where the seeds of chaos are sown with innocent tears. The only peace to be found is within the self. Forging the path of serenity from the mind to the heart is more difficult than any battle fought with steel."

Quasideities

    George And Lennie 
George Milton and Lennie Small, Gods of Tragic Dreams
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/of_mice_and_men_6.jpg
From left to right; Lennie and George.
  • Quasideities
  • Symbol: A small farm with a rabbit sitting in front.
  • Theme: "George and Lennie"
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Big Guy, Little Guy, Heterosexual Life-Partners, forced to travel in search of work, Plan on owning a farm with rabbits but never comes to fruition,
  • Domains: Goals, Agriculture, Tragedy
  • Allies: The Farmer, Ed, Edd and Eddy, Fone Bone, Phoney Bone, Jimmy Hopkins, Dumbo, Charlie Chaplin
  • Enemies: The Killer Rabbit, The Lepus, Eustace Bagge, Gary Smith, Trollkaiger
  • Annoyed by: The Three Stooges
  • Opposed by: The entire House of Beast
  • Complicated relationship: the ascended Looney Tunes
  • During The Great Depression, migrant worker George Milton and his physically strong, yet mentally-impaired friend Lennie Small arrived in California to work on a farm so that they could earn enough money to set up a rabbit farm. Despite their best efforts to achieve their relatively humble dream, things don't go according to plan, to put it lightly. Both had been going from place to place due to Lennie's dim-wittedness and uncontrollable strength costing them their jobs Things quickly escalated even more-so when Lennie accidentally murdered the wife of the hot-tempered Curley, which lead to him being wanted by Curley himself. It all culminated in George having to shoot Lennie in the head so that the latter didn't have to suffer anymore, rendering the duo's efforts and dream for naught despite their friendship.
  • A train arrived in the Pantheon one day, with George stepping out and finding himself in an unusual place. It was clear that he was looking for a place to go to after what had happened back then, though some claimed to George directly that he can see Lennie again much to Milton's disbelief given that he pulled the trigger on Lennie. George was taken to a place in the Pantheon that is described as where those have died can come back to life. George had never been used to hearing anything about the supernatural, but he would understand what kind of place the Pantheon is after seeing Lennie show up in front of him, and even then it took time for George to process everything that was happening. Lennie then asked George about the rabbit farm and the latter then knew what he was trying to do before tragedy had struck. It was entirely possible for a second chance to have a peaceful life in the Pantheon and to get a rabbit farm set up, though not much has changed in terms of George taking care of Lennie.
  • While the duo were looking to see if there were other farmers interested in helping them out, a young boy referred to simply as The Farmer showed up at their place. George was surprised to see a kid like that would be able to tend to a farm successfully and do so for long periods of time. The Farmer was sympathetic to George and Lennie's plight and offered them plenty of help in having their farm set up. In turn, George and Lennie would check in on how The Farmer is doing on their end and make sure problems don't come up.
  • Eustace Bagge didn't take it well after learning that more farmers were around supposedly threatening his job and has presented himself as an obstacle for George and Lennie. All of Eustace's attempts at obstructing the pair have ended in failure, though George does get really annoyed at him. Not helping Eustace's case is him lacking the skills of a farmer (and various other things) needed to take himself seriously in front of George and Lennie. George has even compared Eustace to Curley as far as his condescending attitude is concerned, with Eustace having a greedy disposition on top of that.
  • Their efforts to have their rabbit farm established in the Pantheon would come with some obstacles and help separate from what they first attempted. It was a given that they would find a multitude of rabbits, but what they (George more-so) didn't expect from those bunnies was them having minds of their own. While looking for rabbits for their farm, Lennie ended up coming across a white bunny that some people nearby were acting scared towards, with George having concerns about it. Lennie hugged that bunny, not fully being aware of what it was trying to do to him. Lennie had a few injuries, but the Killer Rabbit was worse off and was limping away. George and Lennie were told about the Killer Rabbit, alongside a whole group of deadly rabbits known as the Lepus and were advised to have caution in making sure these particular rabbits don't end up in their potential farm.
  • The pair have had a tough time getting along with the Pantheon's ascended Looney Tunes. The reason? Most of them have met or worked with individuals similar to Lennie, with Sylvester having to put with being called "George" by his partner Bennie,note  whilst Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and later Marvin the Martian encountered an abominable snowman named Hugo, who also loved to hug and squeeze bunny rabbits and name them George. For their part, the Tunes hold no ill will towards the real George and Lennie, and have offered to help them in whatever way they can... which lead to George telling Lennie to "hang out" with them, knowing their Toon morphology would be able to handle his strength.
    • On that note, the vast majority of the lagomorphs, rodents, and just about every other animal in the Pantheon, keeps a healthy distance from Lennie, due to his tendency to accidentally kill everything he hugs due to his immense strength. They know Lennie means well, due to his love for rabbits, but they aren't taking any chances.
  • The dynamic between George and Lennie has been noted by other like-minded deities. As such, the pair have formed a friendship with the Ed and Eddy, partially because of their shared similarities. Both pairs are comprised of a big and ridiculously strong oaf with an obsessive love for a specific animal (chickens for Ed and rabbits for Lennie) and a short Jerk with a Heart of Gold (well, sometimes) who makes get rich quick schemes. Just in their case, they're all ultimately balanced out by the addition of Edd (Double D), who acts as the weak and meek brains in the roster. They also found companionship with the Bone cousins, with Fone Bone happily helping out the duo while Phoney Bone trying to get Lennie aid in his money-making plans. It didn't end well for the bone.
  • Despite all five coming from the Great Depression, George finds the Three Stooges to be absolute morons, even more so than Lennie and only because Lennie actually knows more than he lets on. However, that doesn't mean he's opposed to the knuckleheads. Lennie gets along well with the Stooges, and Moe has admitted to have gone on multiple adventures with Larry and Curly all for the sake of finding a job. For that, all five can be seen trying to help pay for the rabbit farm... as long as the Stooges don't screw things up.
    • The pair also get along with Charlie Chaplin, who's sympathetic to their cause and often tries to cheer them up whenever things don't work out.
  • The reason George became friends with Lennie is an interesting one. Turns out George had been picking on Lennie back in their school days, but later stopped after realizing the latter didn't notice he was being bullied in the first place. As such, both have no interest in the Pantheon's resident bullies. Chief among them was Gary Smith, whose sociopathic behaviour rubbed George the wrong way and immediately made him quick friends with one Jimmy Hopkins. Jimmy keeps an eye out for anyone willing to pick on Lennie behind his back, ready to kick their ass in the process.
    • This disdain for bullies was what lead George and Lennie to befriend Dumbo, as they sympathized with the flying elephant's own predicament of being bullied and picked on by his peers in the circus. They help out at Dumbo's circus from time to time, even getting free tickets to the performances, but there was one condition. Lennie must be kept from handling the small animals, especially Dumbo's own mouse friend, Timothy. That said, Lennie is allowed to hang out with the elephants, who are more than capable of dealing with his strength.
  • It should be noted that while Lennie is a Gentle Giant and not one who usually fights back, he can and will end a fight rather quickly if pushed far enough. It was how Curley's hand got crushed into a pulp in the first place. One day, the Trollkaiger decided to take some time to harass Lennie, mostly for the heck of it. When George told his large friend to fight back... well... they all ended up in the House of Health and Diseases for about two weeks afterwards.
  • "Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. They got no family. They don’t belong no place. . . . With us it ain’t like that. We got a future. We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us. We don’t have to sit in no bar room blowin’ in our jack jus’ because we got no place else to go. If them other guys gets in jail they can rot for all anybody gives a damn. But not us."
