Pantheon / Hatred

Go To

This is, hands down, the nastiest House of the Pantheon. The opposite of the Houses of Love AND Friendship, they consider these things to be either worthless delusions, adversaries to destroy, or matters to be played around with as tools for their own nefarious purposes. Many gods here are absolutely depraved, but some are sympathetic, and there were some depraved beings that found their way into another house instead. However, don't expect any deity of good to visit this house. The Gods of the Villains House do find good kinship in this House, though, as hatred makes for a very good source of strength, seeing how it gives a person reason to act so that others may suffer.

The house itself is... a bit hard to describe. If the House of Emotion is a Swirly Energy Thingy of pure psychic feelings, the House of Hate is what happens when too much negativity accumulates in it and it vomits it right back out (literally - a constant item on the agenda of these gods is to get the Emotion House sick like that and puke out more building materials - both for territory and because, as befitting Gods of Hatred, most can't stand each other and want as much space between each other as possible). While it's definitely more physical than the House of Emotion, the sheer concentrated bitterness causes it to warp constantly into new, horrific forms. Everything in it, from acidic seas of liquified resentment to cold metal made of solid loathing, serves to remind everyone inside it of darker times, of betrayal, distrust, and jealousy, and every echo contains a mocking whisper. It's even been suggested that the House contains a soul-wrenching intelligence made of all the hate that comprises it; a perhaps-literal ball of implacable, unrelenting, merciless retribution that constantly seethes in its heart, hating. Unsuprisingly, "being moved to the House of Hatred Touristry Panel" is divine slang for being fired.

This house does have one certain number one nemesis, and that is Kenshiro. As he hunts down those depraved enough, he often makes a pass here and whenever he passes, Ludicrous Gibs occurs by his courtesy.

The Trio of Endless Hatred

    Kefka Palazzo 
Kefka Palazzo, God of Madness and Hate (The Mad Mage, the Madcap)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kefka_palazzo_01.png
  • Intermediate God (pending Greater Godhood due to hostile takeover of "Magic" thrones)
  • Symbol: A cracked theater mask with clown makeup.
  • Theme Music: "Dancing Mad" when in battle; otherwise, his personal theme.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Amusing Japanese Translations, Evil Laughs, Demented Laughs, Monster Clowns, Irredeemable Evil, Power-Induced Madness, Power-Induced Wings, Ascension to Divinity, Deriving Joy from Evil, World Destruction Plots, The Power of Hate.
  • Domains: Chaos, Destruction, Hatred, Evil, Madness, Spite, Magic.
  • Allies: Lord Chaos (his boss), also has a love-hate relationship with the Red Lanterns and The Joker, Hisoka, Ardyn Izunia, Red Skull
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Yuuki Terumi, Veigar, Broly
  • Rivals: Sephiroth, and to a lesser extent, the other Warriors of Discord.
  • Enemies: Terra Branford, Flonne, Yayoi Ulshade/Kyoryu Violet II, Leonidas, Noctis Lucis Caelum, Spawn
  • Is strictly banned from entering the House of Magic since the other Final Fantasy deities have spread the word of what happened the last time he got around magical deities. No one on either side trusts Kefka to be peaceful around them since he's proven loyalty will be quickly discarded if it means more power for him.
  • Has been approached by Flonne numerous times, Goddess of Love Freaks, who is certain she can open his eyes to friendship and happiness. Kefka is not amused, commenting that her constant preaching "sounds like the pages of a self-help book".
  • The next person in line for the seat of "Madness" was Luca Blight, who narrowly missed out because his greatest crime was "just" genocide. Kefka beat him by zap-frying an entire planet.
    • The Joker would like to remind everyone that he did the Mad Clown with evil laughter first. That's why he's part of the Main House. However, he does think Kefka's "Light of Judgment" skit is utterly hilarious. He once tried to his own variation, but it wasn't quite as successful.
  • The next in line for the seat of "Hate" was Bonecrusher, who hated the rest of the Pantheon too much to be an effective deity. Bonecrusher is now Kefka's war chariot. Bonecrusher hates being a taxi, but he'd hate not having an excuse to destroy everything in his path even more. He also hates having to work for both Kefka and Suiseiseki and Souseiseki; his schedule gets confusing.
  • King Leonidas of the War House opposes him, partly.
  • Hates being at the beck and call of Lord Chaos, especially since it means having to work alongside Sephiroth on occasion, whom he considers to be a "mama's boy". Then again, Kefka HATE-HATE-HATE-HATE-HATE-HATE-HATE-HATE-HATE-HATES a lot of things.
    • While he loathes having to work alongside Sephiroth, he does find amusement in the Fandom Rivalry their followers carry on and tries to encourage it from behind the scenes. Anything that spreads hatred and bitterness gets Kefka's approval.
  • Yayoi Ulshade hates him with the utmost of passion because he sounds so similar to her own grandfather. Kefka knows this and uses this to troll the young Kyoryuger whenever they are in the same vicinity.
  • Has an on-and-off friendship with Discord. While the two delight in causing mayhem and chaos together, Kefka often goes too far for Discord's tastes and the spirit reverses the damage Kefka has done after the fact. Though initially outraged, Discord's argument that the world is more fun prior to destruction quelled Kefka's anger somewhat. Still, Fluttershy is keeping an eye on Kefka in case he starts being a bad influence on her new friend.
  • Is at war with Albedo, the God of Insanity and Regeneration. More lucid gods are taking bets. Less lucid gods are taking hits to the face with large amounts of fire. The Joker just finds the whole thing hilarious.
  • Anyone who dares to compare themselves to Kefka will be recognized by his followers as "intelligent, nihilistic and with a wicked sense of humor".

  • Subordinates: Monokuma & Junko Enoshima, Redyue
  • Enemies: The rest of the Pantheon (except some female gods, who find him very appealing in his more lucid moments, but especially I-No), Nyarlathotep, surprisingly. One notable enemy (One that isn't one-sided) is Bob and Rei Shingetsu/Vector, Lord Hater and Commander Peepers, Yuno Gasai (after she took Yandere Quartet down with her), Usami/Monomi, Amaterasu, The King of All Cosmos, Roboking, Team RWBY, Nine the Phantom, Ragna the Bloodedge, Simon Belmont
  • Opposes: Izanami (from Persona 4, mind you).
  • Former Ally: Monaca Towa
  • He is the one who will halt time's march and return the world to its original form. This is not very pleasing news for Dio Brando, since that was supposed to be his job.
  • In the words of Terumi, which he insists to become the one truth, the whole Pantheon is a lie, thus, there's one truth that he'd like to show: DESPAIR. He's not gonna ask Despair the Endless to bring it forth; he wants his own brand of despair. Needless to say, the majority's answer to that is: "Dude, that's just, like, YOUR OPINION! Not fact!". Not that this, or any other sign of the majority of the Pantheon's disdain for him, really deters him at all.
  • Terumi, alongside with Johan Liebert, was also involved in Yuno Gasai's ascension to the Pantheon into the House of Emotion, and, to a lesser extent, Love, by respectively trolling and manipulating her into murdering the would-be holder Kaede Fuyou (the anime edition) without Yukiteru Amano knowing about it.
  • Has lately been seen hanging around with the Incubators, hoping to revive the old days before Madoka Kaname rose, during which Magical Girls could be engulfed in despair. He didn't quite take the fact that Usagi Tsukino was the Predecessor into account.
    • Terumi himself seems to have a weird thing going on for one Incubator called Kyubey. On one hand, he's extremely delighted that Kyubey gets to generate a lot of hate with movements like "Everybody Hates Kyubey", etc. However, he's a bit miffed that the hatred was not directed to himself.
  • The GUAG has been plotting to overthrow him, especially for those who consider him nothing more than a whiny, pathetic little coward behind his bravado and 'luxury of Plot Armor'. However, he may or may not be plotting to usurp Melkor in a covert fashion alongside Relius.
    • The full extent of this turns out to be that he's trying to usurp not just Melkor... but the whole Pantheon, everything for himself, so he can watch all those Gods squirm, struggle, and kill each other for his own amusement. He has struck the first deal by having his 'allies' Troll Weil, so he could claim his devil aspiration and malice for himself. Apparently, after Weil, Ali al-Saachez and his throne of For the Evulz is going to be Terumi's next target, followed by Geese Howard and Rugal Bernstein, also Shao Kahn, and probably his 'former roommate' Gilgamesh for his throne of self-aggrandization.
    • Unbeknownst to him, Bernkastel plots to usurp his Trolling portfolio.
    • Hades has already claimed Terumi is just keeping the crown warm for him.
  • Was once utterly humiliated by Deadpool, who called him small-time in terms of utilizing Memes and the Fourth Wall. He only managed to retain his Trolling God position by getting the ASW higher ups to not fulfill Deadpool's wish of him not appearing in the next BlazBlue game.
  • Is one of the evilest deities in the Pantheon aside from Made of Evil deities like Nyarlathotep and Melkor. He's tied with Dr. Weil, barely past Johan Liebert and Relius Clover, and only surpassed by Griffith, Zamasu and Majin Buu in the depravity department. This also makes his fiction one of the darkest fictions ever.
  • With the ascension of his former follower Handsome Jack as the God of Petty Villainy, rumors have begun to spread that Terumi, Izaya, and Jack have allied themselves as the "Troll Triumvirate". The rumor, of course, was started by them as their first act of tripled trolliness. Now revamped to Trollkaiger, with Bernkastel and Basco as the fourth and fifth members.
    • His designation is Trollkai Green; he's the leader of the group. Got demoted as Bernkastel's second-in-command.
  • When he learned about the ascension of Monokuma and his mastermind, Terumi laughed so hard he cried as a form to show how much he's proud of them, his finest apprentices on the arts of spreading despair; he promises to one-up them by making something worse than "The Worst, Most Despair-Inducing Incident in the History of Mankind".
  • Everything was eventually found to be against Terumi's favor when it turned out that he was killed by Hakumen. In a sense that he's utterly trashed, but he was saved in the nick of time by Nyarlathotep, who proceeds to taunt the hell out of him for how much of a chump he turns out to be and decided to keep him in the Pantheon so he will become a laughing stock of many Gods here. Oh and Bernkastel grins evilly here, this means she has all she needs to demote Terumi as the leader of the Trollkaiger and take over for herself. Terumi did not take it well, and looks forward to rubbing the "Fear Toxin Incident" in Nyarlathotep's face, it being a failure of epic proportions on Nyarly's part. That is, after the Crawling Chaos regenerates himself after being nuked by an utterly enraged Madoka.
    • Terumi is planning his revenge against Hakumen and to restore his reputation.
    • However, what most Gods may not know that before Terumi got beat up by Hakumen, he and his Hazama half got separated into two entities. Where Hazama is keeping a low profile for the time being, mainly only visiting the House of Knowledge to do research on other gods in secret, he is looking in the shadows to see what will happen next. He has been researching Izanami so that he and Terumi know how to deal with their universe's Izanami if they return.
  • If there is one thing that you shouldn't try to counteract Terumi's actions is that of feeding him food from a Lethal Chef. He actually adores stuff like that, saying the more disgust others would be by it, the more delicious it is.
  • Got pissed off when he learned that Kokonoe managed to have Lambda-11 ascended after he was certain he killed her, and then got then more pissed off when he learned that she was returning to the battle lines.
  • It was him and Relius that ascended Arakune as a way to get Litchi under their thumb. However, he went one step further and decided to completely slander Ms. Litchi with Trollkaiger. Unfortunately, this was a complete success for Trollkaiger as a good portion of the Pantheon started to slander and scrutinize Ms. Litchi. This got to the point where parts of the Pantheon have split over what to do with with the situation, with some that see Ms. Litchi as a victim and will do there best to protect her and supporting about saving Arakune but in the same time condemning the likes of Kokonoe and Rachel further, while others see Litchi as a complete idiot and an unsympathetic git for trying to save Arakune who they claim is already dead (to the point of going along with Relius' Pantheon-destroying plan), along with another group who wants Litchi to be happy, but they see in order for that to happen Arakune needs to be killed and tries to force her to just 'deal with it'. Needless to say, Terumi and Trollkaiger might have kick-started a civil war in the Pantheon, dating way back even before the formation of Trollkaiger. To make matters worse only a few of the gods actually suspect Trollkaiger and Terumi himself might have been behind the whole affair (especially Downfall Hitler but nobody listens to him), instead choosing to blame each other, or Litchi for bringing this upon herself because she couldn't muster the strength to let go. This act has caused him to laugh like this.
    • And to note, this act has taken effect after his defeat against Hakumen, thus even beyond the 'grave', Terumi is still laughing at his parting gift.
  • Some say Raynare is a creation of the mind of Terumi made to cause extreme psychological damage to Issei Hyodo. Raynare and Terumi haven't commented on that regard, but Terumi is utterly delighted to see that Raynare has screwed Issei up in romance and made him unable to confess to his haremettes. Rumor has it that Terumi himself has planned Raynare's ascension all along just to let her screw with Issei once more...
  • It is heavily rumored that it was Terumi, bitter about his constant failures and ridicule around the Pantheon, that allowed The Flood to enter the Pantheon. While it is unknown if it is true (for Terumi could have just been lying his ass off), the Gravemind has a very special interest in him and seeks to teach him the finer points of bringing true despair to others through its particular brand of torture. For just like Terumi, the Gravemind also desires to bring unlimited despair to the Pantheon, and it too seeks revenge for sins long past. Needless to say, this has made Terumi very happy.
  • He was NOT happy to see his former follower Vector ascend and betray him. Terumi is planning to make him regret doing that.
  • Even though he died at the hands of Hakumen, he still is in the next chapter of his home-series. No one knows how he came back, or what are his plans, but many deities surely aren't pleased whatsoever. Then it was revealed he never died because of Hakumen, but instead managed to No-Sell the effects of Time Killer, though not without consequences. Needless to say, he's been laughing his ass off at the looks on everyone's faces, including Nyarlathotep and Bernkastel, the latter of whom he claimed better be prepared to hand the crown of trolling back to him.
    • In fact, while many have seen this as him getting his well-deserved karmic payback and moved on... Terumi DOES NOT forget such humiliations, and swore that the whole Pantheon will pay for his humiliations, he's going to make them all his bitch.
    • For his first strike, he first manipulated the Lunari sympathizer Diana to get him to aid his assault on Amaterasu with chances that the Moon throne will no longer belong to Amaterasu, and they succeeded, though the throne didn't get to Diana and Terumi ended up failing to kill Amaterasu as she ended up gaining a humanoid form in exchange. If you wish to know why he staged it in the first place? He says it's For the Evulz, but in truth he remembered a Noodle Incident where the dog!Amaterasu tackled and humiliated him by striking him and ending with her peeing on his face as 'payback for his general bastardry towards humanity'. No way he's going to let a mutt like her get away humiliating his radiant self like that.
    • As his true self Susanoo, he hates any deity that has anything to do with Amaterasu's name, especially the goddess herself. While none of them are the same type of Amaterasu from his home world he intends to destroy them all none the less.
      • He actually did attempt to fight her in this form one other time, this time, more in secret lest other deities begin to pray for her safety. However, he still had two other people he had to worry about. One was the Prince of All Cosmos, who served as a Spanner in the Works, telling his father, the second person Terumi had to worry about, and having them arrive and save her by exhausting Susanoo by having the king fight him. Susanoo held his own against the king, but the Prince eventually somehow managed to roll him up into a Katamari that was turned into a small sun to help heal Amaterasu. Ever since then, the King has become a massive wall between him his revenge on Amaterasu, and after reviving as his Terumi form, has sworn revenge against the King of All Cosmos. His response? Toss one of Amaterasu's bagged "accidents" at him, having it explode all over his face. He had to steal the only shower from the House Of Family for two hours to clean up, leaving a mess on the way in to also get his daily despair desire in. And nobody's gonna let him forget it.
  • A lot might say that he has crossed the Moral Event Horizon ever since birth and his other atrocities were merely Kick the Dog. However, if there's another level of Moral Event Horizon that existed, he definitely crossed it with his overenthusiastic antics to break Nagisa Furukawa, starting from emulating the voice of Tomoya Okazaki to make Nagisa feel horrible, making Black Humor over her death, and hammering home that her family looked so miserable in her departure that they died miserably, all just to see Nagisa keel over in pain because of her illness. This would've killed her as well if it wasn't for her friends sending her to the nearby doctor. Why is this especially bad? Because unlike his other victims like Noel, Tsubaki and Litchi, Terumi did this knowing full well that Nagisa is a non-combatant. The sight of him torturing those who couldn't even fight back was considered extremely vile even for Pantheon standards, especially knowing the nature of Nagisa's origin. His reaction? He's so happy he's Laughing Mad that he broke a new record of vileness and wants to see more exciting misery above that.
  • In light of the above, something else needs to be explained regarding Terumi. He is literally fueled by The Power of Hate. By stoking everyone's hatred towards him, he increases his power and sustains his existence. This is why he will be seen in many profiles across the Pantheon engaging in some act of malicious trolling. While usually his acts are more of a great annoyance that often gets rebuffed or paid back violently, it still builds up the substenance of ire in his direction. And then he crosses the line and does things like the above that are capable of truly causing harm.
  • His quest for misery had led him Commander Peepers who was alongside Hater at the time. Paying no mind to the skeleton, he decided to mess around with the eyeball alien to the point that his eye was burning up from being spat in and irritated. He was laughing his ass off about how much pain he was causing Peepers and how much hate he was feeling to further his powers, only for Peepers to make a remark that Hater ALSO gained powers from hatred, and he was NOT amused by Terumi trolling Peepers. He woke up in the House of Life And Death after being brutally assaulted by Hater and all the hate he was feeling. He was NOT amused upon learning that he actually ascended as a god because of this incident, and the fact that Hater's power from hate is strong enough to bring him back from a Disney Death.
    • One such instance was having his Trollkaiger group troll him into submission. Needless to say, it didn't go well. Because of this incident, Lord Hater is around the top of his threat list as well as Trollkaiger's "Do not enrage" list.
  • He and Hazama have been completely seperated as of Central Fiction. They work together, yet Hazama seems to have his own plans.
  • He also regained his true power after getting revenge on Hakumen, killing him and taking back the Susanoo unit (which, as it turns out, originally belonged to him), attaining the power level of an Overdeity and once again becoming his true self: Takehaya-Susanoo-no-Mikoto, god of storms and darkness, Satanic Archetype of the BlazBlue Universe and destroyer of worlds.
  • As Susanoo, Terumi's influence is present, but he has lost his trademark insanity. While his arrogance remains, Susanoo is a terrifying monster who will destroy everything in sight, seeing that it is his divine right to do so. Unfortunately for him, Ragna still managed to blow him away, but the force remains within him. This also draws ire to the actual Susanoo at the House of Pride for actually daring to sully his name by flanderizing his past. Even so, Terumi's essences remain within the Pantheon, but while he did not lose any ranks, he was severely depowered. That being said, he can easily remedy that by reassuming his Susanoo guise to give himself a massive power boost, not to mention that the power he lost is gradually returning, so it won’t be much of an issue for him. He’s also claimed that As Long as There is Evil (or people who think he's such a cool villain worth worshipping), the Pantheon will never get rid of him.
  • Severely disappointed at his former subordinate, Monaca Towa, for jumping ship and joining the Itazura Griefers, much to the chagrin of Junko and the rest of Trollkaiger. He has vowed to "tear her a new asshole" when he catches her, but so far he's been busy with other things and doesn't have the time, nor the will, to hunt her down.
    • He also showed severe disapproval in Junko for her simply brainwashing Ultimate Despair into loving despair, alongside their teacher, and having her sister do all of the tough work for her, calling her lazy and how it severely degraded her as a threat, enough to the point he decided to refuse her into Trollkaiger, walking and laughing all the way.
      • As of now, the two did team up one more time to try and ascend an enemy of the King himself from his dimension, and found Roboking as a result. Seeing how his Robo-Katamari once caused an apocalyptic scenario within the King's world, the two of them tricked Roboking into ascending and starting a war with the King again. Unfortunately, this stopped shortly after the Prince caught wind of them and managed to talk him down. Even worse, the King now just knows who ascended his most hated enemy from his dimension. Cue Junko and Terumi trying to pin the blame on the other and preparing for the worst.
  • While incredibly strong as Susanoo, he has been beaten on some occasions. For example, one day while fighting the LOL Rangers as Susanoo, he managed to severely wound several of it’s members, but despite that, they managed to lure him into a trap created by Usami. Using magic that she learned from Amane Nishiki she quickly trapped him into a circle and turned him into a strange but harmless black version of the creature known as "Pakumen". While he got better,the mad god is pissed at the little rabbit creature for humiliating him and viciously mauls any copies of her when he sees them. Of course, the LOL rangers are proud of themselves for managing to troll someone as powerful and evil as Susanoo, but they’re also more wary of him because of how risky it was and because Susanoo came really close to killing them several times in the process.
  • One of Terumi's more surprising hobbies is playing the guitar and being really good at it. Sometimes he even heads over to the house of music to have a duet with I-No.
  • Even he's surprised by how he well he gets along with Zamasu now. They initially got off on the wrong foot, with Zamasu taking offense to him invoking the name of Susanoo, a god, whenever he saw fit, and Terumi getting pissed off by his long-winded monologues the former spewed out. But when push came to shove and Terumi needed someone to help reclaim his original body and remembering his own overbearing contempt for mortals and hatred for his "big sister" and superior god, he saw an opportunity to work with the fallen Kai. Needless to say, Zamasu's killing of his masters, and nearly every other god who would stand in the way of his freedom and the eradication of all mortals positively delighted Terumi, as did learning that the god took great pleasure in rubbing the death of Goku's family by Goku's body in Goku's face. Now, he can almost appreciate Zamasu's rantings: it's basically just a more eloquent version of Terumi's own ego-stroking. It's also helped by the revelation that Terumi isn’t actually a mortal taking a god's name as many deities (including Zamasu himself) originally thought, but actually IS the god Susanoo, meaning that he was never a mortal to begin with. The new partnership naturally alarms nearly everyone else in the Pantheon.

  • Zamasu was the former North Kai of Universe 10, and the apprentice Supreme Kai of that universe. Though a prodigy, he distrusted mortals because of their propensity for evil. An encounter with Goku, who proved stronger than him, exacerbated the issue and began his turn to evil. Out of his inability to discern moral gray areas and believes that the gods are perfect, he plans to slaughter all mortals to create a better world for the gods. Even if he has to kill the other gods to do it.
  • The ascended Zamasu is a fusion of two versions of himself, equal partners in crime. One half of him is Goku Black, the main timeline Zamasu before Beerus killed him possessing Goku's body. The other is the Zamasu of Trunks' timeline, who was partnered with his counterpart after the former had put his plans into motion. He's gone on saying this is proof of the sin of time travel, as if Trunks never travelled back in time his Start of Darkness would never happen... ignoring that the Future Zamasu was planning on killing Gowasu anyway and Trunks only went back in time to save his world (not to mention that Cell would've probably screwed Universe 7 over if he never went back in time so the Androids would be killed). He possesses a lot of contempt for Cell due to abusing time travel, and Dr. Gero for being the impetus for it. As such, when Dr. Gero approached him to help him kill the humans, Zamasu immediately dismissed the Doctor as being just another lowly destructive mortal, not even making any pretense to want Gero's support.
    • It has been revealed that Potara Earrings are only permanent for Supreme Kais, though other methods like wishing for a split are possible. It is advised not to wish Fused Zamasu to split back into Goku Black and Future Zamasu. While a lot less powerful, Goku Black is far less likely to screw around. Fused Zamasu acts much more like Future Zamasu since his fusees were the same person and Black was so different because he inhabited Goku's body.
      • In another timeline, Fused Zamasu does split up once their time is up since they are not official Supreme Kais due to not being properly appointed as one. Unfortunately, whether it is due to their immortality or the fact that they are the same person, they instead split into two halves of Future Zamasu and Goku Black and they actually mutate even further so they split into thousands of immortal Zamasu clones, each being as strong as the original, making them even more dangerous than before.
    • As for his contempt for Dr. Gero, this only grew with the revelations surrounding both the link system and the creation of Android 21. Once again, the Red Ribbon scientist has provided yet another shining example of humanity's inherent predilection to destructive folly, all out of paranoid love and twisted grief. As a result, 21's ascension disgusted Zamasu to the point he had to let her know exactly what she represented in his eyes. The psychological torment that his explanation put her through resulted in her heart giving way to her hunger, thus proving Zamasu's point; the monster then tried to overpower him in order to consume him, but managed to destroy the grounds of the Mentalism and Hatred houses FAR more than actually damage Zamasu.
      • Eventually she fell suddenly unconscious, which Zamasu later learned was due to Android 16 activating the Red Ribbon Army's power-sealing waves on her, and then was suddenly rescued by The Flash before he could finish her off. The houses were repaired by Sailor Moon, and when 21 came to, her heart was in control again. All the aforementioned hate his guts and contend that he is at fault for the entire incident. Not that he cares for the disgusting opinions of Ningen.
  • Finds the very concept of the Pantheon to be repulsive. Of its members, the majority were not gods in their home universe, and he considers the very idea of a mortal reaching the position of god to be the height of blasphemy. He particularly incensed by mortals who deified themselves in their own series or achieved god-like levels of power, like Madoka Kaname for becoming hope or Team Dai-Gurren for their god-like antics. Thanos and Victor Von Doom are also near the top of his hit list for successfully usurping godly power on a number of occasions. On the flip side, just about everyone who was a god pre-ascension to the Pantheon hates him because he committed genocide on the other gods due to his delusions. This attitude makes him one, if not THE most hated and antagonistic gods in the Pantheon, even more than Melkor and arguably more than the Anti-Monitor since the latter's at least impersonal about it.
  • Despite being a villain, Zamasu doesn't feel like he has anything in common with the other Dragon Ball villains. Unlike them, who either don't care about their evil or take pride in it, he believes he's doing the multiverse a service. Most would argue he's just as, if not worse than the likes of Frieza or Majin Buu, which he refuses to believe. However, if need be, he will work with Broly due to sharing hatred towards Goku and one of his bases fusing with him into Karoly Black. The GUAG is in fear of if the Fusion Zamasu ever seeks to combine with him.
  • He claims that he is the true form of justice, and should be made the leader of the House of Justice. Said house laughed at his proposal, which Zamasu responded by claiming they are "ignorant of what justice really is". A chance encounter with Barbatos finally made him drop all pretenses of justice and admit that he doesn't care about justice and order, but about creating a Multiverse where only he is its sole inhabitant... because he will be the Multiverse.
  • Vehemently denies that, at the end of the day, he's more interested in being THE Top God of creation than bettering the multiverse. No matter how much of a Satanic Archetype he is, do not claim that he is one. He goes into bouts of Unstoppable Rage if compared to Melkor. The Dark Lord finds his self-denial of just how utterly irredeemable he is hilarious. As for Zamasu's view on the Dark Lord, he views him as an abomination. Given that he is the living embodiment of evil, he abhors him for influencing mortal evil rather than trying to abolish it. As such one of his top goals is to permanently kill Melkor believing that it will purge the multiverse of all evil. But of course, his very actions propagate evil itself and therefore help Melkor's cause.
  • Words cannot begin to describe how much Goku, Vegeta and especially Future Trunks hate him. As Goku Black, he stole Goku's body and murdered both him and his family in cold blood, killed Future Bulma and laid waste to Future Trunks' world. There's also the fact that, when he lost his physical body, he rendered his entire timeline lifeless. They were horrified to learn that Zamasu had returned, considering he not only died, but was completely erased by Future Zen'o. It was eventually revealed that the Grand United Alliance of Destruction was behind his return, seeing as how his hypocritical ambitions would help lay waste to everything. At first, he considered them to be disgusting for trying to kill everything, despite his own plans not being much different. However, he has begrudgingly accepted they are the best hope to successfully pull off his Project Zero Mortals and has an ally of convenience with them.
  • For a god to not interfere or get involved is a sin to him, and as such he looks down upon any All-Powerful Bystander. He considers the Living Tribunal to be corrupt for only getting involved in the direst of situations rather than regularly judging mortals, while the Tribunal himself simply considers Zamasu out of his mind. Absolutely despises the Supreme Kai of Time for using mortals, especially a certain Trunks, as her proxies in correcting the timeline, not to mention still allowing Trunks' changes to stand. Philemon's tendency for this in spite of supposedly being the embodiment of all that is good about humanity re-affirmed his belief on the evils of mortals, as did learning of Nyarlathotep.
  • Hates Darkseid with every fiber of his being; dumbfounded that an inherently evil god can even exist. Zamasu flat out refuses to call the Lord of Apokolips a god due to him indulging in and even boasting about committing the same kind of evil deeds as mortals. Darkseid, on the other hand, couldn't care less about what he has to say about him. Even pointing out that he's Not So Different from the mortals he so utterly despises.
  • Were they not human, he'd consider Shinobu Sensui and Seryu Ubiquitous near-perfect allies as he shares absolute hatred of humanity with Shinobu and absolute merciless justice with Seryu. He also applauds the Dark Judges for realizing how criminal the lives of mortals are but would prefer them to exterminate sentient life specifically instead of life itself. He considers Light Yagami "an honorable member of a despicable species" as they are very similar, wanting to kill all those they see as evil to purify the world so a beautiful new one can emerge and have a god complex. That being said, Light thinks of him as too extreme even for his tastes.
    • He's trying to work with Maltheal to make mortals behave, Zamasu, however, thinks The Evils of Free Will isn't enough to deal with mortals as he considers them that corrupt. He does consider it a good stepping stone, however.
  • When his physical form was destroyed by Trunks, his spirit tried to become justice itself by assimilating the timeline he was in. The downside was losing what little sanity he had left, similar to Giygas-a comparison Zamasu isn't comfortable. The House of Justice considers him an abomination, and Madoka Kaname is quick to point out his One-Winged Angel form is a complete failure at Abstract Apotheosis.
  • Usually keeps his cool, however when it comes to Funny Valentine he is absolutely terrified of him. As a composite of two alternate versions of the same being, Valentine's Stand is his major weakness. That being said, there's some ambiguity as to how it might affect him considering he's physically half-Goku and possesses corrupted Complete Immortality. Considering what he became after he lost his physical body, Valentine is afraid of what might happen and only plans on using Dirty Deeds Done Cheap on Zamasu if absolutely necessary. He's afraid of what Enrico Pucci might do to him as well. Mainly Made in Heaven, as the Time Acceleration could screw with the fusion and possibly even erase him from the new reality. However, Pucci is not entirely sure if Made in Heaven would actually work, considering the Time Ring prevented Goku Black from being erased in a similar manner.
  • He has under his possession a time ring, stolen from his former master Gowasu, who he personally killed. If this isn't enough, he also stole a Time Machine from the Future Supreme Kai of Universe 12, all with the intention to eradicate humankind in every possible timeline. As such, he is an enemy of every time god, who find him detestable. And as powerful as he is, he is aware he is no match for Zen'o. As such, he wanted to obtain the Infinity Gauntlet to gain absolute omnipotence in order to eliminate them and take his place as the absolute lord of creation, in a universe where his justice couldn't ever be sullied. Thanos didn't allow any of that.
  • Asura despises Zamasu, as he sees him as what would have happened if Deus had gotten his way. Likewise, Zamasu despises Asura as a mortal who would dare reach the gods, even killing the Top God of his realm.
  • Despite all he's done his misanthropy is not without reason. The inaction of Universe 7's gods allowed the likes of Babidi and especially Frieza to lead to countless suffering. By contrast, Universe 11's gods have shown to be quite active in enforcing justice with the Pride Troopers, and that universe is 5th in rank. Beerus was quick to remind him that he shouldn't get cocky, as one of the things Zen'o values is average mortal level. Zamasu was quite pleased to know that in a timeline, the Supreme Kais from Universe 7 weren't lazy and destroyed any mortal that was considered a menace to the universe, including an infant Frieza and Cooler, Majin Buu and Broly when he was a baby. He, however, was disgusted that they later went to a Tournament between alternate timelines to participate instead of finishing the job.
  • Is revealed that his complete immortality allows him to survive the "Hakai" technique from Beerus and other Gods of Destruction, meaning his boasts about being a flawless god do have some merit. However, he is still no match for Zen'o, running away from him in a timeline. He was utterly horrified to learn that two Zen'o have become part of the Trope Pantheon, completely losing his composure and refuses to ever visit his house. Which is pretty justified, as he's personally experienced Future Zeno's full wrath.
  • With the ascensions of Baby and SCP-682, Zamasu seems to have finally found some genuine allies. Baby is a creation of vengeance, like Goku Black was thought to be, whose parasitic methods had the potential to unite mortals under a divine rule that could've brought them to heel and order if it wasn't for Son Goku ruining things again, and while his interests lie purely in the eradication of mortals, complete subjugation could be either an interesting test or a step in his ultimate direction... which he shares completely with the reptilian SCP creature.
    • The most unlikely alliance Zamasu actually managed to make was with Sargeras. While their appearances and methods might differ a lot, it is in their backstories where they are truly Not So Different. Sargeras was formerly a Champion of the Titans, similar to Zamasu's status as his Universe's North Kai, and after fighting the demons for so long and seeing how corrupted creation has become Sargeras decided that complete annihilation of all creation was the best solution. Both believe that all corruption must end, even though Zamasu doesn't quite think that corrupting worlds with Fel and later destroying them is a better alternative but he agrees with the Titans ideas.
  • The alliance with Baby started once a version of Goku Black decided to do something his counterpart never did: kill Trunks. He travelled to a timeline and killed a version of Trunks. This was part of his plan, as in that timeline, Future Gohan managed to survive the attack of the Androids, and even reach a form his main counterpart never did: Super Saiyan 3. When the time was right, Black fought with Gohan to unlock his Super Saiyan Rosé form and killed the Saiyan. After that, Black went to another timeline and convinced Baby to kill Goku before it was too late. After that, however, both Baby and Black had to fight Broly, who due to the high Zenkai boost during his fight against Gohan and Goten, managed to achieve a Super Saiyan 4 transformation. Baby and Black decided to fuse into a distorted version of Vegito and killed Broly once and for all. This also awakened the Beerus from that timeline, but time will tell what happened after that day...
  • He is utterly despised by the extremes of all alignments, and even The Divine Powers has a lot of issues with him. And it's pretty obvious to see why. Cosmos despises how he can be so completely evil yet still believe he's the hero, Melkor can't possibly work with someone who wants to destroy all evil in his eyes despite being irredeemably evil themselves, YHVH needs human followers and Lucifer can't stand his utter contempt towards mortals considering how he thinks Humans Are Special. And he's done too much damage for the Grand United Alliance of Machines to consider accepting him. Hell, even his own team, the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, can barely stand him because of his oxymoronic desire to destroy all sentient life besides the gods (or more accurately himself) for the sake of a vibrant multiverse.
  • If his own ego wasn't big enough, Zamasu felt further validated upon learning about the various universes where As Long as There is Evil, Gods Need Prayer Badly and Clap Your Hands If You Believe. The fact that Warhammer 40,000 has Chaos shaped by the thoughts and feelings of sentient beings, and is one of the biggest Crapsack World galaxies because of it, was absolute proof in his demented worldview that mortal beings are as evil in his eyes as Zamasu himself is in reality — the latter of which the Emperor of Mankind wants to remind him of violently. The Idea of Evil was further "proof" for him that people are beyond salvation.
  • He feels the same about the Shin Megami Tensei Multiverse and the Forever War with Law and Chaos, given how sentient beings' belief shapes it. It was pointed out to him that the various divine or demonic beings can also shape things with belief such as the Fake YHVH, but he brushes this off since they're no gods in his eyes. He also remains blind to the underlying message that Humans Are Special, and has decided the SMT Multiverse itself is better scrapped. Frighteningly, he sided with the White as he promises to help them eradicate their own multiverse once and for all, and all the realities where human belief is a real power that affects reality... though only then because he'd rather the other realities "merely" have humanity exterminated. And as is typical of Zamasu, he made a long-winded speech about it most either ignored or tried to refute:
    "When worlds are shaped by the belief of mortals, by their emotions and thoughts, and they turn out twisted, it is absolute proof of how truly rotten and irredeemable mortals truly are! The likes of YHVH and Yaldabaoth call themselves gods, but gods are meant to be above mortals! I only made a mortal into my flesh because that very mortal perfectly represents the failure of the gods, and shall serve an eternal reminder so it never happens again! To claim that these creatures born from mortals' collective sin are gods is among the worst sort of blasphemy, and for anything beyond mortals to think Humans Are Special is among the worst kind of ignorance. Only the gods have the right to shape existence. The Chaos Gods, the Idea of Evil, are symptomatic of realities so poisoned and cancerous they must be utterly destroyed so as to salvage the rest of existence! And I shall be the one to do so, for the sake of justice!"
  • Found a kindred spirit in fellow Trio of Endless Hatred member, Yuuki Terumi. Though the Kai originally despised Terumi and his obnoxious attitude, seeing him as the embodiment of mortal arrogance, that all changed once Terumi sought him out to help retrieve a certain original body of his and explained his true nature and plans. Finding out that Terumi was a legitimate god like himself, who yearned only to destroy and enslave mortals in terror all to spite Amaterasu, intrigued Zamasu to worrying levels. He himself had taken a mortal's body as a vessel, rebelled against superior deities, and enjoyed eradicating mortals, after all... Now, Zamasu can almost applaud his fellow god's attitude, since he is right to be smug and cruel to ugly mortals. One shudders to think about what the two's alliance bodes for the Pantheon.
  • Fused Zamasu was both horrified and jubilant at learning about the Dark Multiverse. A realm created by the living hopes, fears and failures of people, it's the perfect reflection of all he sees wrong with mortals and gods. It is horrifying for embodying that, and the best proof he has for his view that Humans Are Bastards and his cause is validated. It is also proof of what the inattentiveness of the gods will get you since the Dragon Barbatos abandoned his job of disposing of these inherently broken realms, which tainted the main multiverse. While his argument has legs to stand on, Zamasu's inherent hypocrisy prevents him from realizing he's Not So Different: when reduced to Infinite Zamasu, Zamasu utterly corrupted the Future Trunks timeline into something so malignant it threatened the other timelines and had to be completely erased. In other words, he became a Dark Multiverse in his own rights, one even worse than the actual Dark Multiverse.
    "Do you see it now?! THIS is what happens when mortals have their way and when gods forsake their duties of quelling mortal sin! All these realities, all of them the reflections of the fears, failures and evils of mortals! And pray tell, what did the dragon who was supposed to destroy these worlds do? NOTHING! He allowed them to fester, to rot! He betrayed his master and became a conqueror so he can take over Multiverse! Do you need any more proof that mortals are inherently evil no matter what and that gods are failures who cannot admit their own mistakes?! That's why if none of the gods will do nothing about their mistakes, I WILL!!!!"
    • When Barbatos himself heard this, he just laughed and pointed out his hypocrisy and flaws, wearing down Zamasu until he reached a breaking point when he said, "Face it, Zamasu, for all your talk of justice and order, you're just as much a sinner as the mortals you hate. In other words, in a metaphorical sense, you are a mortal, too." Driven insane by rage and denial, Zamasu tried to attack the dark god, only to have the Time Ring snatched off his finger. Without the Time Ring, the Goku Black component keeping the fusion together was erased, leaving only Future Zamasu. However, the already unstable fusion affected his immortality on a cellular level, causing his body to turn back into Fused Zamasu, but as his half corrupted form. His mind completely gone, Zamasu threatened to turn into his Infinite form, only to have Barbatos drain him to a withered husk barely clinging to life, stopping him from achieving the transformation. While he recovered in his temple, Zamasu's sanity partially returned as well, and his hate for the gods and mortals grew as he shouted,
    "The Creation Trio, the Main House, the Overdeities, and this so-called Pantheon, they are all unnecessary! Every single intelligent life that isn't myself shall be terminated!"
  • Absolutely loathes Luka and Alice with a passion due to the two of them being responsible for the death of their universe's top goddess, Ilias. To him, Ilias was in the right, all mortals and monsters should have been exterminated by her and her angels, and the world should have been replaced with something better... or in Ilias' case, better for her. Luka and Alice hate Zamasu, seeing him as an even more insane version of Ilias. A chance encounter with the duo led to him being attacked by Alice's Monster Lord Cruelty and then sealed into a weaker form by Luka's Angel Halo, much to his anger and humiliation.
    "A righteous god defeated by a half-blood mortal and a devil spawn? It's sacrilege! It cannot be!"
  • During his final fight with Zamasu in the mortal realm, Future Trunks once summed up Zamasu perfectly:
    "It's not about gods and mortals! You don't believe in anyone but yourself and we won't let you win! I don't give a damn about you, or your so-called justice!"
  • Also holds a position in the Main House.
