https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9cb321316e06164439147b3f627f17b4.png
Majora's Incarnation 
Majora's Wrath 
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The mask itself wreathed in flames and shadows
  • Theme Song: Majora's Theme, Majora's Wrath; in battle, any of the tracks in this video, depending on the form Majora takes
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Wanting to consume everything, Treating its atrocities as nothing but fun and games, Dropping a moon onto Termina because why not?, Using the Skull Kid as a puppet for its schemes, Ancient relic to NEVER be trifled with, ruining countless lives for its own amusement
  • Followers: The Mask of Dark Earth, The Noh Mask
  • Allies: Yuuki Terumi, Cia (?), SCP-1548
  • Rivals: Ganondorf Dragmire, Jack of Blades
  • Enemies: LINK, Skull Kid, Princess Zelda, Midna, Lana
  • A seemingly innocent, though disturbing, piece of wood used in not-so-innocent ancient hexing rituals, the true nature of Majora's Mask is that of psychotic and malevolent being that wants nothing more than to consume everything and bring about endless suffering. Just because it's fun.
  • Whether by forcing others to wear it or by enticing them to, anyone who begins to wear the mask will be granted incredible and terrifying power. At first, they might use this newfound strength for their own goals, but over time, they begin to lose sight of themselves as their most negative and darkest aspects are amplified, all the while engaging in petty and increasingly cruel tricks as the mask's influence slowly overtakes them. Eventually, all that remains is Majora's own will as it uses the host's body for its own.
  • Majora's ascension was heralded by the sudden appearance of its signature nightmarish moon in the sky above the Pantheon, which almost immediately began to descend upon the land. Knowing that the mask had appeared once more, Link brought Zelda and Midna with him to stop Majora as numerous gods and goddesses did all they could to halt the moon's descent. Though its efforts were inevitably stopped by the Hero, Majora's Mask still remains a dangerous and unpredictable threat to all who live in the Pantheon.
  • All efforts to uncover the origins of Majora's Mask have come up empty-handed, giving rise to endless speculation and rumors. Some say that Majora was once a mighty beast that resided in a timeless wasteland. Others think that it was an otherworldly being that came to ancient Hyrule during its infancy. In any case, what is clear is that the mask is easily one of the cruelest beings there is. It sees everything as a game and will do anything, from de-aging someone to a childlike form to trying to destroy the world with the aforementioned moon, just to sate its own twisted sense of humor.
  • Has NOT endeared itself to Ganondorf ever since the mask cheekily remarked that it found it hard to believe that a mere shadow of Demise could ever hope to surpass his legacy. Needless to say, the Gerudo King plans to show the mad god just what kind of power he wields.
  • Midna is particularly disturbed by the mask. It doesn't help that rumors have been circulating that her people may have worshiped Majora before...
  • People began to panic when Lana appeared one day wearing the mask, but she was VERY quick to reassure everyone that it was just a replica. Majora got a kick out of that, laughing at how terrified they were of a mere fake, but also declaring how the witch was going to suffer for daring to make a copy of it. Perhaps the next time Lana wears her costume, it'll really give everyone something to scream about...
    • Cia was later seen wearing a similar replica, but something seemed very off about it, leading people to believe that she actually was wearing the mask. Cia refuses to comment and Majora simply giggles.
  • For Terumi, it was practically Love at First Sight when he learned of the psychotic entity residing within the mask. What could be better than an insane god that only wants to spread misery just because it feels like it? Of course, he still plans to use Majora for his own devices. Likewise, the mask admires Terumi's cruelty and sees him as a potential new puppet.
  • Majora views the ascension of The Flood and The Gravemind as a wonderful thing, seeing a kindred spirit in the ancient being and wishing to ally with it to see how much FUN they can have. The Gravemind doesn’t share the sentiment, believing the mask to be far too childish and insane to bother associating with, though it has taken note of the amount of suffering Majora has caused and sees potential use for it.
  • Hata no Kokoro and Majora are to be kept absolutely far away from each other as humanly possible. There's no telling what kind of devastation that a Majora-possessed Kokoro could cause. One such disaster was barely averted when Reimu and Marisa subdued the mask after it attacked her when she tried to take a closer look at it. The poor girl was in shock for weeks and Majora now has its eye on making Kokoro its new puppet, if only for the irony of having the Goddess of Masks being controlled by one of her own.
    • As a result, a number of gods have begun to keep an eye on the two, lest the mask attempts to possess Kokoro again. Jack of Blades, of all people, has taken an active roll in warding off Majora from getting any closer to the goddess. He sees the mask as a threat to the vessel of the Queen of Blades and is doubling his efforts at finding a suitable vessel for the Knight of Blades to assist him. This isn't lost on Majora, to which it gladly welcomes this new game.
  • Has an unfathomable hatred for Hyrule's Golden Goddesses. If anyone worships or praises their goodness, it is one of the few times Majora absolutely loses it, ranting and raving that they are just as bad, if not worse than it is.
  • Aside from Terumi, the mask does not have many allies, if any. It gets along well enough with fellow Omnicidal Maniacs, but even then, they have to keep an eye on the mask in case it decides that it wants to play with them. Majora doesn't care who its tormenting; As long as it gains amusement from the pain and misery it causes, anyone is fair game.
  • Majora soon learned that its former vessel, Skull Kid, has arrived into the Pantheon and the imp is not happy about the Mask. It preyed on his loneliness and used him to cause chaos and suffering throughout Termina. He sneered at the mask and vow to never wear him again.

    Aku Aku and Uka Uka 
Aku Aku and Uka Uka, Dueling Siblings of Floating Masks (Aku Aku: Aku-Aku, Uka Uka: The Great Uka Uka, Uka-Uka)

Aku Aku (left) and Uka Uka (right) in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

  • Symbol: A Box with either the face of Aku Aku or Uka Uka.
  • Theme Song: Invincible Aku Aku and Invincible Uka Uka respectively
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Aku Aku) and Chaotic Evil (Uka Uka)
  • Portfolio: Floating Masks, Witch Doctor, Cain and Abel, Expressive Mask

  • Rivals: Majora (For Uka Uka. His brother considers it an abominable threat)
  • Enemies: Each other
  • The twin brothers Aku Aku and Uka Uka were once two powerful Witch Doctors whose spirits now reside in masks. Given his younger's brother malicious nature, he sealed Uka Uka in an underground prison in hopes of keeping him at bay. While he ended up befriending Crash Bandicoot. eventually taking care of him and joining him on his adventures, Uka Uka was indeed freed from his prison and decided to enlist the help of Dr. Cortex.
  • Both are opposed to the idea of sharing house and originally only Aku Aku was the one considered for ascension, but he preferred to have his brother around him in case he decided to wreak havoc when he was absent. Though most of the time they are very civil with each other and try to keep conversations between them as short as possible.
  • Given that they were Witch Doctors in the past, it's no surprise that Aku Aku made friends with Voodoo, Vol'jin and Nazeebo, who are also witch doctors. Uka Uka only found Dr. Facilier on his side, but even then the Shadow Man is terrified of Uka Uka given that he doesn't have fond memories about Floating Masks, but the more he obeys the mask the better.
  • They have the power to turn anyone invincible for a very short time, which the GUAG AND GUAE found useful. But Aku Aku prefers that his power isn't weaponized at all and tries his best in stopping his brother from doing the same. Fortunately, Uka Uka isn't someone to keen on taking orders from anyone, so for now he refuses to be the tool of someone.
  • To their surprise, they weren't the only magical masks that wandered the halls of the pantheon and they learned about the existance of majora. While Aku Aku is indeed horrified that such creature could even exist, Uka Uka on his part says that conquering or destroying the earth is his job and won't allow Majora to take all the credit.
  • Aku Aku became good friends with Hata No Kokoro after learning that she collects mask and she is quite impressed by him. She once decide to use him just to mess with Reimu, prompting Crash to chase after her.
  • Both once decided to settle their differences by making some of his friends and minions duke it out in a series of minigames. While the stopped doing that, sometimes they would use Mario Land when they decide to compete against each other.
  • Aku Aku has been fighting evil for many centuries and considers his duty to defend earth from evil. Given his connections to nature he is in very good terms with the House of Nature and can often be seen there with Crash.
    • Given his ties to the jungles, Aku Aku is not very fond of Mordremoth and for a very good reason. However, he has been careful about dealing with said dragon without proper aid.
  • Uka Uka is known for having a very deep and threatening voice, which has cemented his status as a villain. This has made him buddies with The Kurgan, who in a surprising turn of events also sounds like him.
  • People have tried to guess what does Aku Aku say when he is summoned. The most common answer would be "Ooga Booga!".
  • Courage is very scared of Uka Uka given his bad experiences with scary masks thanks to Eustace. Uka Uka would often mess with the poor dog by jumpscaring him.
  • Samurai Jack initially though that Aku Aku was just another avatar of his archenemy Aku and immediately set out to destroy the mask. However, Aku Aku was able to explain that he was in no way related to Aku and he actually reminds him a lot of his brother.
  • Sometimes they can't be seen looking rather differently than usual, prompting many to believe that they are actually two unrelated masks. Some may even joke that this Uka Uka lost weight.
  • If Uka Uka saw Spyro as a formidable enemy before, in the aftermath of the dragon's and Crash's one-on-one which ended in the obliteration of the mask's brother and the bandicoot, Uka Uka now fears him a bit more.
  • Can also be found in the House of Living Objects.

    Jack of Blades 
Jack of Blades, God of Malicious White Mask Wearers (The Hero of Heroes, Xiro)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jackofblades_1119.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Mask and The Sword of Aeons
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: The most feared person in Albion, Villain with Good Publicity, Body-snatching via his mask, Agelessness, stretching back LONG before the dawn of man.
  • Domains: Void, Chaos, Magic, Will, Skill, Strength, Masks, Possession
  • Allies: Satan, Mr. Scratch, The Beast, Sauron, Melkor, Maleficent
  • Odd Friendship with: Adam Taurus.
  • Enemies: The Hero of Oakvale, Theresa, The Hero of Brightwall, Dovahkiin, Ryu Hayabusa
  • Was the one to cause the events that almost destroyed Albion; he attempted to open The Void, which would allow him to unleash the monsters into the realm so that he could rule the world.
  • He did this in the past but was defeated by a hero named William Black who destroyed his physical form and stole his weapon The Blade of Aeons.
  • He is currently attempting to reclaim The Sword of Aeons as it has been hidden from him.
  • He would also be the one that drove Theresa to build the Tattering Spire to combat corruption from his very sword, which infected the land and formed into The Crawler and The Corrupter that would attempt to destroy Albion in the near future.
  • Is often seen with the mask on and rarely takes it off as it is what is left of his soul and can use it to take the bodies of others.
  • He can alter the tone of his voice. When he is manipulating people or striking up conversation he has a very relaxed and quiet yet smug and creepy tone, and when he decides to be serious or when he feels it is needed to intimidate it becomes deep and monstrous.
  • Tried to have a nice conversation with Hata no Kokoro and even went as far as to offer one of the masks that he carries with him. The reason for this is he sees her as a suitable vessel for The True Queen of Blades
  • He is indifferent of his counterpart Kane, though he seems to see him as a good replacement if this old body breaks down.
  • Is respectful to Kerrigan and will even help her if the situation calls for it, but thinks that she is not The True Queen of Blades that he serves.
  • He is also known to have a Dragon Form. He is smug to The Dragonborn, often claiming that as a creature of The Void he is not something The Dragonborn can slay.
  • Ryu Hayabusa has attacked him in the past, as Jack reminds him of "The Regent of The Mask". Jack is getting tired of these attacks and has put him as the first to fall when he reclaims the Sword of Aeons.
  • Is interested in Tobi. He thinks that he would be a good Knight of Blades.
  • Has learned of a hero doll made for him, and — to the surprise of some — he is greatly amused by it, having decided to keep it for himself.
  • He now works with Satan to try and reopen The Void into the Pantheon and take the Great Will's Throne.
  • He once stumbled upon Adam Taurus while the latter was in the house of Costumes searching for some new clothes to keep up with the change in wardrobe his enemies underwent. Jack and Adam became close friends due to the similar white masks they wore. Occasionally, they can be seen gorging on noodles together in the house of Food.
  • "I have returned. After an eternity away from you all, Jack of Blades is back!"

    Kane (Wrestler
Kane, God of Evil Mask Wearers (The Devil's Favorite Demon, The Big Red Machine/Monster, The Demon Kane, Corporate Kane, Glenn Jacobs, Glen Jacob Callaway, Issac Yankem DDS, The Christmas Creature, Jacob Goodnight, Titan, Mayor Jacobs)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wwe_kane.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His mask behind a fiery background
  • Leitmotif: Out of the Fire, Slow Chemical, Veil of Fire
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, but verges on Chaotic Neutral on a "good" day. Lawful Evil as Corporate Kane and Lawful Good as Mayor Jacobs.
  • Portfolio: Huge shifts between characters, fire wielders, having the name of Cain and BEING the Cain to his brother's Abel, completely crazy maniacs, good guys with sociopathic tendencies, evil looking grins, the serious guy in comedic situations and snarking through them, strong and smart fighters, those who take crazy amounts of punishment, hamminess, evil characters wearing red and black
  • Domains: Fire, Masks (most of the time), Wrestling
  • Special Relationship: The Undertaker (his brother)
  • Complicated Relationship: Daniel Bryan
  • Rivals: Edge, John Cena, Rey Mysterio, Shawn Michaels, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy
  • Enemies: Pete Rose (don't ask), Blanka
  • Worthy Opponent: Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, Clark Kent/Superman
  • As a token of good faith, Daniel Bryan thought it'd be a favor of charity if he brought in Kane into the Pantheon. Kane arrived in a massive plume of fire, scaring all the child gods and causing them to flee in terror as he stormed to the House of Personal Appearance.
    • To say that that he was upset upon finding Daniel Bryan has joined the Wyatt Family could be considered an understatement. Then that changed into a Big "YES!" when he saw how Daniel Bryan whupped Bray Wyatt's ass.
    • Given his role with WWE's Authority who were actually trying to keep Bryan from the World Heavyweight Championship at the time, he didn't dare show this sentiment publicly, only covertly helping Bryan gain the opening he needed to break free from the Wyatts. Unfortunately, in challenging for the championship after Bryan had obtained it, Kane tried to abduct Daniel's wife. The two have been at each other's throats since then, as Bryan considers the monster a hopeless cause.
      • They recently managed to patch things up, and in doing so began their usual hammy arguing style. Kane has stated that he sees Daniel like a brother...which is absolutely not reassuring considering that Kane has set his own brother on fire once.
  • Once had to take anger management with Daniel Bryan. This resulted in a time where Kane was…nice, to put in perspective. The Trollkaigers had a field day for a while, doing what they could to get Kane to blow his top. The one time they did manage this, Kane brought out a steel chair. The results weren't pretty, to say the least.
  • Whenever he and The Undertaker team together (which is rare), WATCH OUT. these two become the powerful "Brothers of Destruction" and the two spend time "trying to out-do each other" when it comes to beating up gods that come their way. Then after that's over, the two start tearing each other's throats out, which by then everyone in a twenty-foot radius better run for the hills as they start summoning fire and lightning to murder each other with.
  • Whatever you do, DO NOT talk about his love life. ESPECIALLY if one of the names is Katie Vick. It will NOT end well. Oh, and if one of the names is Lita, expect a Tombstone. That name brings back lingering issues with both Matt Hardy and Edge. And he wants nothing to do with AJ Lee because she's crazier than him! How crazy you may ask? She once dressed up like him (mask and all) and made out with him in front of an entire audience!
    • Speaking of which, he honestly thinks that BROKEN Matt is absolutely nuts and wants nothing to do with any Deletion battles in House Hardy, especially with the Lake of Reincarnation capable of transforming him into one of his...disgraceful gimmicks.
    • Another Berserk Button is the day, May 19th. It has some connections to an alternate self who is willing to slice other people open with a meathook in hand.
  • It was originally thought that his mask was covering up hideous burn scars from the fire that claimed the life of his parents when they were children, but when he was finally unmasked…turns out it was just smeared make-up underneath. It could be that his biological father Paul Bearer brainwashed him into believing he was scarred, but that's just one theory of many about his twisted past.
  • His character fluctuates a lot. One day, he's a malicious monster who set Gods on fire—he once did it to poor Jim Ross—another day he's going through some very comedic moments. No matter the situation, he's always ready to kick ass.
  • Somehow, Vince announced that Kane would fight Shaggy and Scooby-Doo as part of the opening for WrestleMania. Bets were made that Kane would decimate the two, but surprisingly Shaggy and Scooby managed to win. Kane took the loss pretty well, the ones who lost their bets didn't.
  • Superman once encountered him, recalling a time where he fought a being known as "Titan". Kane was all too willing to give Kal-El another go, and the two ended it on good terms with one another.
  • When he's not wrestling, gods are amazed to find him to be one of the nicest guys out of the ring. He also knows a lot about politics and has a term as mayor, making him allies with Mike Haggar and Cody Travers.

    Khârn 
Khârn, God of Pissed-off Looking Helmets (Khârn The Bloody, Eighth Captain, Equerry to the Primarch Angron, Khârn the Betrayer, A Pretty Fun Guy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kharn_traitors_hate.jpg
  • Intermediate God, but goes Greater God if his Berserk Button is pushed
  • Symbol: His infamous helmet and Gorechild
  • Theme Song: Kill, Maim, Burn
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Trying to beat his best record daily, being unable to calm down, being a calming influence for Angron, killing every foe and ally he can in battle, HATING retreat, surrender, truce or peace, being the most feared of the World Eaters, destroying two entire legions of Chaos Marines all by himself, Lightning Bruiser, Using both Chainaxes and Bolters in combat, Terran-Born Unification Wars Astartes (From Siberia)
  • Domains: Rage, War, Killing.
  • Followers: The Khornate Berserkers.
  • Allies: Angron and Khorne
  • Enemies: Everybody else.
  • There were good news and bad news with the ascension of Angron, Primarch of The World Eaters, to the Pantheon. The good news were that despite having decimated a couple of gods in brutal combat, he rarely leaves The Warp. The bad news? His best friend Kharn The Betrayer was ascended to do some killing wile he was away. Since then, it has been widely accepted that where the phrase "KILL! MAIM! BURN!" can be heard in the divine plains, it is a sure-fire sign that Kharn is there.
  • An important message to all gods who tries to employ his services in battle: Whatever you do, DO NOT CALL FOR RETREAT/PEACE/TRUCE/SURRENDER ETC! If you wonder why, just ask the Emperor's Children and The World Eaters what he did when they had a truce for a few hours.
  • Just like his master Angron, he can appreciate a good fight and a proper berserker. Among the few people he sees as worthy opponents there is Cain Marco, The Angry Marines of Asura, Guts and Mogul Khan. Some even believe that Mogul might be an ancestor to Kharn for some reason.
  • There is so far only one creature that Kharn will not harm: cats. It is speculated that Anonymous tried to lower his murderous tendencies through a series of experiments, but only managed to make him spare feline creatures. Sadly, Catgirls and beastfolk are not safe from him. If anything, they only piss him off even further.
  • For some very odd reason, there are people who consider Kharn to be a Pretty Fun Guy To Be Around. It's just that all of his attempts at having fun or making jokes involves killing hundreds upon hundreds of people on a daily basis, such as when he got his hands on a Commissar Cap and kept screaming "I'M THE NEW COMMISSAR NOW!!" wile shooting everyone in sight until someone managed to knock the hat away from him.
  • Became even more pissed off than normal upon meeting Usalia. Trying to attack her made him look like a chump, for he did not expect such a wide array of defensive passive powers, not to mention her axe resistance making Gorechild nearly useless.
  • Unknown to most, Khârn has been in a 10,000-year long Villainous BSoD following a Loyalist's failed attempt to redeem him. His boundless rage and his penchant for killing fellow Traitor Marines is born from his inability to escape the truth that was forced upon him: that siding with Horus was wrong and that he could have turned away from Chaos of his own free will.

    Neku Sakuraba 
Neku Sakuraba, God of Isolation Symbolized By Headphones and Powered Pins ('Phones, The Anti-Sora, Orangeylocks, Nekky, Hollow-skulled Hectopascal, Tiger, Spicy Tuna Roll)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/neku_standing_pose.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A Player Pin, alternatively his headphones.
  • Theme Music: "Twister"
  • Alignment: True Neutral -> Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Headphones Representing His (Former) Isolation, The Chosen One, Telepathy, Uses Pins For Psychic Powers And Can Use All of Them, Byronic Hero, Loner-Turned-Friend, Becoming The Anti-Nihilist, Brutal Honesty, Acquiring Chronic Hero Syndrome, The Comically Serious, Took a Level in Idealism, Defrosting Ice King, Becoming A Messianic Archetype, Individuality
  • Domains: Memory, Empathy, Pins, Undead
  • Herald: Necho Cat
  • Allies: Shiki, Beat, Rhyme, Joshua, Sora, Riku, Shiena Kenmochi, Ash Ketchum, Pikachu, Misty, Brock, Makoto Yuki
  • Enemies: Sho Minamimoto, Master Xehanort and his cohorts
  • Neku was once an ordinary asocial Shibuya teenager. And then he got roped into the Reaper's Game by its Composer, who chose him as his Proxy, where one needs a partner to survive. In this game, he's been required to connect with people, hone his new-found powers, and maybe even get to the bottom of the mystery beneath the Game.
  • When he first woke up in the Pantheon, in a fit of confusion he clutched his head and screamed, "WHAT THE HELL?!", before the situation was explained to him.
  • Thanks to Joshua pulling some strings in the Court, despite not having ascended proper as a Pantheon deity at the time, Neku and his friends had ascended to the Pantheon after the whole Reaper's Game business... and one other event. At first, he inherited the trope The Empath given his Player Pin's power.
    • However, given that the only thing special about giving him that was the fact that he's the last person to want it at the time, there's been talk of giving him Headphones Equal Isolation now that its previous holder, Futaba Sakura, has left it vacant with her House transfer.
    • Double however, given that he's become more open to others and symbolized that by discarding his headphones at the end of the (main) game, yet another trope was found for him; The Pin Is Mightier Than the Sword, given that he uses pins to perform Psyches. It's true that that goes for all Players in a Reaper's Game, but Neku has The Gift to use all of them rather than just one or two.
    • In the end, it was decided that he take both.
  • A perk of his ascension is that even if the Pantheon is a Realground of sorts, he's able to use his Pins' Psyches like it was the UG. This includes the Player Pin's ability to read surface thoughts. Given what the Pantheon has, he's definitely not complaining.
  • Even though he was seen discarding his headphones after his third Reaper's Game, he still keeps them around even now. They're a pretty snazzy pair and quite expensive.
  • The reason why Neku used to be so introverted? He had a best friend who died in a car accident, and he felt that if he hadn't asked him to meet up by the wall at Udagawa, he wouldn’t have been caught up in that accident and would still be alive today. It caused Neku to develop massive amounts of Survivor's Guilt and blame himself for what happened, causing him to shut himself off from the rest of the world.
    • He's still guarded even now, but not as closed off as he was before.
  • Hates being painted as a stereotypical Emo Teen.
    • Some people ask him if he needs to resist his "emo urges". Neku has no response to that.
  • For some reason, he had never noticed that Shiki had disappeared from the Pantheon Until Joshua invited him to a search party to seek her whereabouts, after which he was alarmed and immediately "signed up". The mission was a success.
    • Given how much Shiki meant for Neku, as well as the fact that Joshua took the time to set that search without Neku asking him first, some people are asking the two Shibuya teens if they're already a couple, much to their embarrassment.
  • Used to have nothing to aspire to before getting roped into the Reaper's Game. As such, and because of his character development, that's why he still considers Joshua a friend, even though he doesn't forgive him for his actions namely killing him, and making him his Proxy in favor of destroying Shibuya. It's only thanks to Neku's changes that Joshua changed his mind and spared the city.
  • Even before his character development, he does not like lying.
  • While he usually a calm person, rile him up or bring up Tin Pin Slammer and he's surprisingly Hot-Blooded.
  • Might have some interest in certain specific feminine clothing, if the exclusive bonuses two items (the Lace Bonnet lolita headdress, and the Dragon Lady qipao) grant Neku only is anything to go by.
  • Was one day greeted by Sora, who was glad to see him... for reasons Neku couldn't recall. The Keyblade wielder was a bit distraught that Neku doesn't "remember" him, but decided to ask later when Heartless surrounded the two. After making quick work on them, Joshua arrived to clarify things.
  • Neku wanted nothing to do with the Friendship Asylum... until he learned that Joshua was stuck in there, powerless. Neku, along with Beat and Rhyme, are planning an assault to get Joshua out of there.
    • After getting Joshua out (and to Black Jack due to deep cut wounds), Neku and Beat returned to the asylum in the hopes of saving Sora's body from the asylum's control. They instead find Ash Ketchum, who tried to attack them with an Aura Sphere. They were saved when Greninja secretly placed a Key Stone inside Neku's hand, which triggered Lucario's Mega Evolution and allowing it to block the Aura Sphere with it's own.
    • Since he's not a trainer, nor has any Pokémon partners, Neku gave his Key Stone to Sora so that Gardevoir can Mega Evolve whenever it needs to.
  • Is going to be roped in again to another Reaper's Game after the events of "Another Day", this time with Sho Minamimoto as his partner. Thankfully for him, he won't be missing from the Pantheon like Sora has. He promises he'll try and watch out for him, though, given implications that Sora might've ended up in Shibuya's UG in a Reaper's Game just like him.

Lesser Gods

    Blizz 
Blizz, the God in the Hood
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blizz.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A hooded face revealing nothing but the eyes
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Badass Adorable, Bounty Hunter, Curious as a Monkey, The Engineer, The Faceless, Gadgeteer Genius, Glacier Waif, Improvised Zipline User, In the Hood, The Nicknamer, Pintsized Powerhouse, Third-Person Person, You No Take Candle, Only Known By His Nickname
  • Domains: Bounty Hunters, Hoods, Salvaging
  • Followers: A good number of Jawas
  • Allies: Non-evil Disney deities, good Star Wars deities
  • Odd Friendship: Rad Dudesman
  • On Good Terms: Alana and Marko, Nabi and Doki
  • Enemies: Evil Star Wars deities
  • Opposes: The Sarlacc, Boba Fett
  • Who should represent the iconic hood is a subject that was deliberated on for a long time by the House of Costumes. The higher-ups were frequently drawn to Jawas, an entire species of hood wearers from Tatooine, and eventually decided that a Jawa would be ideal for the position. Despite the fact that they had narrowed it down, the question as to which Jawa to ascend still remained. Soon they would come to discover that they needed not look further than the one called Blizz. He was one of the very few Jawas to ever explore beyond his home planet, and unlike the others had much less of a tendency to simply run away from his problems. Not only that, but the little guy was also considered a tank, able to wield a rocket launcher that is huge compared to him. While Blizz admits that he would have preferred to have been assigned to a different House, he still showed little to no hesitation when offered the position.
  • After his ascension, most members of the House of Costumes eventually came to be thankful that he is very rarely actually seen there. They realized very quickly that Blizz isn't exactly the most pleasant smelling deity in the Pantheon.
  • It's worth mentioning that Blizz is not actually his real name. His old recruiter, Slam Streever, gave him the nickname after he kicked up a small snowstorm on Hoth upon seeing snow (which he calls "white sands") for the first time. Blizz has still never revealed his actual name to anyone.
  • Most deities in the Pantheon cannot understand Blizz without a translator. Because Luke and Obi-Wan can speak the simplified Jawa Trade Language, they often fill this role.
  • Blizz has nearly been banned from the Houses of Technology, Gaming, and Weapons several times. Though he has come close to receiving a ban, his offenses were just never considered severe enough to warrant one. They basically all amount to a few deities being annoyed when his curiosity gets the better of him and he finds himself unable to resist the urge to fiddle with various tech.
  • One of Blizz's current projects is an attempt to turn a Virutal Boy into something useful. The House of Gaming wishes him luck on that.
  • Blizz can often be seen cutting up with various Disney deities. Many suspect that he is attempting to get in tight with them in hopes of becoming an official part of the Star Wars canon.
  • At first, Alana and Marko, along with their close friends Nabi and Doki, were wary of Blizz at first. They assumed that, because of his profession, he was associated with the other bounty hunters that had been causing them trouble. Blizz insists that this isn't true, and for now, they seem to believe him and are on pretty okay terms with each other. The common misconception that Blizz is associated with Boba Fett has led the Jawa to dislike him a bit.
  • Many were surprised to see Blizz and Rad Dudesman become so close. Most expected Rad to quickly become annoyed with Blizz, but that never happened, much to everyone's shock and pleasant surprise. They often bond over their love of heavy weaponry and get along just fine as long as Blizz doesn't mess with Rad's ship. The temptation is very real at times, though.
  • Though Blizz considers the Dominion of Tatooine sacred, being his place of birth, homeland, and location where many of his followers reside, he could do without the presence of the Sarlacc. While it is true that the Sarlacc is basically an animal that only eats to survive, he still avoids it at all costs and is not too keen on the Pantheon keeping another one in the House of Beast. He has tried without avail to warn the beast keepers of the dangers of keeping it in the Pantheon.
  • Do not try to take off Blizz's hood. He knows you're probably curious. Most people are, but he definitely keeps it on for a reason. Let's just say that you probably wouldn't be able to look at him the same way again if you saw what was actually under there. This has definitely made him a subject of interest to the Trollkaiger.
  • Blizz doesn't know how to feel when people tell him that he and the rest of his species sound like the Minions. Sometimes he wonders if he should feel insulted.

    Hayate Immelmann 
Hayate Immelmann, God of Helmet-less Heroes (Haya-Haya)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_hayate_immelman_1_1.png
  • Lesser God
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Symbol: Hayate's Seigfried
  • Portfolio: Helmets Are Hardly Heroic, Ace Pilot, Blue Is Heroic, Dance Battler, Contrasting Sequel Main Character, Deadpan Snarker, The Gadfly, It Amused Me, Military Brat, You Gotta Have Blue Hair
  • Domains: Warfare, Flight, Love
  • Allies: Freyja Wion, Mirage Farina Jenius, Sheryl Nome, Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi, Amuro Ray, Luke fon Fabre, Kenshin Himura, Aang, Batman, Superman, Yuuma Kousaka, Kira Yamato, Setsuna F. Seiei, Kallen Kozuki, Banagher Links, Ichika Orimura, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mordecai and Rigby, Tenya Iida
  • Enemies: Deities who enjoy killing, Nobuyuki Sugou.
  • Stays away from: The house of Felines
  • Odd Friendship: The Strike Witches, 765 Pro.
  • Opposes and Opposed by: Heinz Windermere
  • Before joining Delta Squadron, Hayate was travelling from planet to planet, trying all kinds of jobs because he didn't know what he wanted to do with his life. Not long after joining Delta Squadron, Hayate found piloting to be his true calling in life.
  • Despite how unsafe it is, Hayate never wears a helmet while he's flying because the A.I in his Siegfried frequently gets in the way of his flying. While this presents a hazard in the event Hayate starts to crash, it also allows for more unpredictable flying.
  • Hayate was surprised to hear Sheryl Nome, the famous Galactic Fairy, was already present in the Pantheon and went out to meet her. Needless to say, a friendship quickly bloomed between them and she gave him her blessing. Hayate even noticed some similarities between Sheryl and his friend Mikumo Guynemer.
  • Whenever he's in a fight, Hayate always tries to defeat his enemies without taking their lives. Because of this Hayate is good friends with Luke fon Fabre, Kenshin Himura, Aang, Batman and Superman.
    • Because of his no-kills rule, Hayate can't stand people who revel in killing.
  • The Siegfried Hayate flies didn't originally belong to him but actually belonged to a senior member of Delta Squadron, Messer Ihlfeld who had unfortunately fell in battle not long before it was recommissioned for Hayate's use.
  • As expected of a mecha pilot, Hayate has become friends with other good-aligned mecha pilots in the Pantheon:
    • Is it really any surprise he gets along with Kira Yamato? Hayate wholeheartedly approves of his no-killing rule and ability to show mercy even in the heat of battle. He can even keep up with Kira in SEED mode with his music Synchronization ability, allowing both to perform stellar moves.
    • Feels a bit uneasy with Setsuna F. Seiei, thinking him a darker, more serious version of Messer. Still, he at least knows he has good intentions and respects him for allowing humanity to be at peace with an alien race, a much better outcome than the whole Windemere fiasco.
    • Enjoys getting on Kallen Kozuki's nerves, but also sees her as a good friend and wingmate. The way he puts it, "she has Mikumo's voice and Mirage's personality."
    • Good friends with Banagher Links and Ichika Orimura, mostly because they sound like Messer, but he can also relate to them with their romance problems.
  • Hayate tries to keep as far away from the house of Felines as he can because of his allergies, so some of deities enjoy pranking Hayate by leaving cat fur on his clothes.
    • Something that baffles a lot of deities though is that Hayate gets allergic to anything that has cat-like features, regardless of whether it has fur or not.
  • Recently, Hayate's been seen training with the ascended Star Fox crew as they're good practice for when Hayate is in a Old School Dogfight.
    • He can also sympathize with Fox given their mutual experiences with Disappeared Dads. James McCloud sacrificed his life to save Peppy Hare from Andross, much like Wright Immelmann detonated a bomb to save the planet Windemere, at the cost of his own life and reputation. Both pilots have come out stronger for it and resolved to keep flying.
  • Hayate's often been seen getting along well with the Strike Witches due to all of them being inspired by real fighter pilots. For that matter, he's also shown to get along well with 765 Pro because not only are they idol singers but have participated in a mecha battle, though it's unknown if Producer-san wants to add his company into Walkure, although they've recently banded to defend the idols from Nobuyuki Sugou following his ascension.
  • One time when Hayate went to the house of Power, it didn't take long before Hayate became friends with fellow mech pilot Yuuma Kousaka, but the fact that every time Yuuma says something, he sounds like Hayate weirds him out.
  • Formed a good friendship with fellow like-named deities Hayate Ayasaki and Hayate Yagami.
  • Given his carefree attitude, it's no surprise he gets along swimmingly with Sonic the Hedgehog, Mordecai and Rigby. You are likely to find them playing video games, eating junk food or fighting evil deities.
  • Was surprised and happy to learn his wingmate Mirage had ascended as well. There were some worries that his reunion with Mirage would be awkward, given his relationship with Freyja and Mirage's unrequited feelings for him. Fortunately, their friendship remained strong and there haven't been any trouble between them since.
  • He once found a man looking to retire his helmet in the house of Costumes. Since he shared the sentiment that Helmets Are Hardly Heroic, he struck up a conversation. He learned that the wanderer's name was Tenya Iida, and he sympathized with Iida's moment of Revenge Before Reason. He has promised to one day take Tenya into space, since he was a bit jealous over that.
  • Also present in the House of Heroic Appearances.

    HUNK 
HUNK, God of Gas Mask Mooks (H.U.N.K., Mr. Death, The Grim Reaper, Human Unit Never Killed, The 4th Survivor)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hunk.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His gas mask
  • Theme Music: The Mercenaries ~ HUNK and Looming Dread
  • Alignment: True Neutral with shades of Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Not-So Gas Mask Mooks, Badass Normal, The Ace, Neck Snap, The Stoic, Sociopathic Soldier, Lack of Empathy, Blade Below the Shoulder (and Feet), Constantly Being Sole Survivor, Inexplicably Awesome.
  • Domains: Soldiers, Survivors, Badassery.
  • Followers: The Special Forces
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Reaper, Kabal
  • Enemies: William Birkin, T-00/Mr. X, The House of Undead
  • Feared by: The Mann Co. Mercenaries (Except the Pyro)
  • Umbrella Corporation has had many operatives and groups at their disposal, the U.S.S. being one of them. A notorious member of said group is HUNK, considered one of the most effective members of Umbrella Corporation that has never failed a mission and repeateadly being the Sole Survivor against all odds. Hunk was one of several members deployed to capture Dr. William Birkin and retrieve a G-Virus sample, but after one of his trigger-happy comrades shot the doctor dead, prompting the latter to inject himself with the G-Virus and proceed to slaughter most of his squad sans him. HUNK later managed to narrowly escape Raccoon city after almost failing to arrive on time to his extraction point, the only reason he was picked up being because the helicopter pilot was a huge fan of him.
  • Being a somewhat notorious Gas Mask Mook, HUNK was given the trope on behalf of former Umbrella intern Albert Wesker, recognizing that the Grim Reaper was a very effective agent that could aid him on his plans for the pantheon. Even then, HUNK has no issue being a neutral party and even willing to work as a mercenary for all the Grand Alliances ever since Umbrella shut down.
  • Even though HUNK is classified as being "evil", he is more like a mercenary who, after the fall of Umbrella, will work for any one who he can offer his service to. He even took a mission to recover a Hinamizawa Syndrome sample from GUAG and was succeful in it. However, he did eventually find permanent job under Apollyon's rule. No one is absolutely sure how she got him to her side.
    • Because of this, he hasn't interacted with Wesker that much after the fall of Umbrella but he is employed by him from time to time. The biggest reason however, is that Wesker is still heavily associated with William Birkin and the man hasn't forgotten than HUNK's squad pretty much responsable for stealing a G-Virus sample and turning him into the G monstrosity.
    • And then the ascension of Lord Spencer also brought HUNK back into getting involved in Umbrella related affairs. While he tries to stay a freelance mercenary, his work for both Spencer and Apollyon has soured his relationship with a few Grand Alliances.
  • He didn't gain the nickname "Mr. Death" for being a killing machine (though he can and will kill you if needed), but because he is constantly Sole Survivor of any team he is part of, which pisses off almost every death-related deities in House of Life and Death. Doesn't help that now he is goes by "The Grim Reaper"
    • Some gods said that some one hired Ezio to assassinate him. Not only did HUNK survive, he also started carrying hidden blades around both of his wrists and on the tip of his boots since that day.
  • He is completely ruthless in mission, placing it over everything else, and only ways he can express emotions of some one messes up or not giving enough details on a mission, thus possibly putting his team in pointless danger. This has given him some respect from Colonel Radec, a Helghan commander that prides on efficient and resourceful men like HUNK and decided to offer him a role in the Helghast forces. HUNK considered it but he prefers to be a freelancer, even then the rest of the Helghast forces respect HUNK as much as if he were a high ranking Helghan commander.
    • However, overtime he has developed a sense of care for his subordinates, a rare development considering they usually find themselves dead and even more ironic that he started to change after witnessing Radec's treatment of his own soldiers (While fair to them, Radec is no stranger to executing his men for minor infractions). While HUNK is usually quick to use his motto of "This is war, survival is your responsability", he is very aware that this also applies to him and when he was running late to catch his evac back in Raccoon City, he was willing to be left behind just so his pilot could get away. Thankfully, Nighthawk, his evac, was a huge fan of him enough to stay behind long enough to pick him up.
    HUNK: Why did you come back?
    Nighthawk: I wanted to meet the Grim Reaper.
  • He is almost never seen without being in full costume, and only rarely showing his face. Demitri once used Midnight Bliss on him, and only thing changed was that the "Lady HUNK" didn't have any pants on.
  • When it comes to B.O.W.s, he is very skilled at handling them. However, he is still a little wary of the T-103 Tyrant, not only because one of them kept chasing him during his attempt at escaping Raccoon City, but the one that is the pantheon is still adamant of eliminating him even if he is part of Umbrella.
  • Some have asked him if he knows about Tofu, an anthropomorphic block of tofu who is said to have gone through the same ordeal with him armed only with a knife. HUNK isn't sure what are these people talking about but others believe he is lying since there is evidence he actually ended up eating said Tofu.
  • Realized he is not the only agent that goes by the Grim Reaper alias. Having met Talon Leader and field agent Reaper, both masked men worked on a joint mission and once finished, left with both a sense of rivalry and respect, helps that both share similar monikers and mindset.
  • His job as a mercenary has somehow landed him in a job alongside the Classic Team, who were more competent that he initially thought and at first they thought he looked like a weird alien soldier. On the other hand, their foes the Mann Co. Mercenaries are somewhat afraid of him given his track record and menacing mask, although that may be because of the Pyro's notorious fearsome reputation (Ironically, Pyro is the only that is fine with HUNK).
  • Some deities are wondering why he is so obssessed with his extraction point, often rudely interrupting others in their conversation. HUNK has no comments about it.
  • "The death cannot die!"

    Justice (Afro Samurai
Justice, God of The Martial Arts Headband (The Number One, The Three Armed Gunman)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/338d0b4ac015f729bb94338c9e2e73b3.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Number One Headband wrapped around his hat
  • Theme: The Movement, Come On!, and Afro Fight Groove 5
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio:Using unlimited power to bring about ultimate peace, To become God when God has failed,Doings evil actions to rid the world of conflict, A well trained revolver user, being diced was not enough to kill him, Doing harm to the few to save the world that has become lost in violence
  • Domains: Peace, Justice, Holy, Order
  • Allies: Funny Valentine, Nikolai Bulygin
  • Enemies: Afro Samurai, Anyone that has the Number Two Headband
  • It may seem strange to many that a man with the goal of becoming God choses this position but what few realize is that having The Number One Headband makes you the best fighter in the world in his universe and that it is the beginning step to true godhood.
  • He took this position to try and gain all of his world's headbands so that he can become powerful enough to rid the multiverse of conflict, and this will allow everyone young and old to live in tranquility.
  • He dislikes the other gods that have the power to rid the multiverse of conflict but only use it for selfish reasons: "I believe it's a sin not to rule the world if you've been blessed with the strength!"
  • He claims that the multiverse is lost and that all the violence and killing are never going to end if the higher powers that be will do nothing to help their worlds, then he will become God when the gods have failed.
  • If The Number Two ever reach the throne room of the Number One or if any other gods attempt to visits him they will see a decrepit shriveled Justice sitting on his throne, do not let this fool you as with a bit of blood which causes steam to rise from him as the blood fills out his veins and he regenerates to his prime
  • He is very skilled gunslinger often catching others off guard with the speed of his shots, he is quite fast being able to dodge the fastest of slashes and is able to parry blades with his revolvers, and if push comes to shove and people enter his personal space he has a third arm under his cape with a sizeable dagger capable of decapitation which is what he used to kill Afro's father.
  • He is also shown to be in control of the throne room to some degree as he is able to grow tree like arms, teleportation, extending his legs, as well as generating several spikes to spring up and impale those in his throne room, a warning to all those that have The Number Two Headband and wish to fight him.
  • Often seems to try and empathize with revenge seekers "That moment will always haunt you" but that quickly is discredited with his deep maniacal laughter.
  • If they take offense and try to attack, they are quickly told they cannot challenge him without The Number Two Headband, though he is ready to fight them. "Find it and challenge me when you're ready to duel a god" he will then deeply smoke his cigarette and laugh even harder as he makes his back to The Throne Room of The Number One.
  • He also dislikes people making big deals out of any battle that does not bring ultimate peace as to him their little battles are nothing but a sea spray of blood in the endless ocean of the world.
  • Has learned of Afro's ascent into the pantheon and is readying himself for the battle. His throne room already filled with all other headband fighters that have confronted him impaled by spikes around his throne. He now needs only one more headband and he will gain the power of God and rid the world of the chaos that has infected his world.

    Marcus Fenix 
Marcus Fenix, God of Bandanas
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marcus_11.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbols: His do-rag, his tattoo (Crimson Omen with crossed Lancers).
  • Alignment: Lawful Good

  • Domains: Law, Good, Loyalty, War, Nobility
  • Followers: Ryoga Hibiki, May, Frank Woods,
  • Allies: Damon Baird, Isaac Clarke, Doomguy, Master Chief, Zidane Tribal, Commander Shepard, Solid Snake, Will Turner, Commander Adama
  • Rivals: Jack Cayman
  • Enemies: General RAAM, Bowser, Bowser Jr., The Koopalings, Colonel Mael Radec, General Shepard
  • Respects: Bandana Waddle Dee
  • Nervous Around: Any and all canine deities of the Pantheon
  • Once the God of Chainsaws, he was discharged from the Pantheon when it was discovered he used too many other weapons to qualify for the title. After some years on reflection, the Court of the Gods determined he was a decorated, not just for his loyalty to his crew but also for wearing his do-rag at all times. Thus, it was decided that Marcus would be brought back into the fold, with the insistence of Master Chief.
  • Master Chief was joined by a number of deities who reside in the Xbox division in the House of Gaming. His inclusion is part of an effort to add more of their kind into the Pantheon.
  • He respects Clarke for his resolve and surviving his predicament. Marcus admits that not many soldiers could have that kind of willpower, never mind an engineer.
  • He doesn't express it that notably, but it's clear he still holds a grudge on Jack Cayman for kicking him out of the Pantheon all those years ago. With that said, he still respects the former marine for getting that far.
  • Respects the Doomguy, considering that the One-Man Army serves as an inspiration for many of his games. He also shares Marcus' interests in mowing down monsters and evil aliens.
  • It may not be apparent at first glance, but Marcus is brighter than he looks. He likes to read books; he just doesn't want to brag about it to his peers. Still, that knowledge earned him the respect of Zidane Tribal. Some do wish that he would express that knowledge better in his games.
  • It has been long established that the Locust Horde, a subterranean reptilian race that has opposed Marcus and his men, have been sponsored by non other than Bowser himself, God of Evil Reptilians. Now that Marcus has returned, he hopes to put the fight to him directly. In response, Bowser has sent his minions to harass his followers, thinking that the human is beneath his level. He may want to retract that statement soon, as Marcus has done a fair job holding them off.
  • Has been haggled by Mael Radec, and not just due to being in rival consoles. The Colonel knows just how dangerous a man willing to go the distance to defeat his enemies. He volunteered to dispose of the man under the order of the GUAE.
  • He may be a loyal soldier, but he isn't above showing any unruly generals where they can stick their cruel orders. That made him quick enemies of General Shepard.
  • Not to be confused with the more common Shepard of Mass Effect fame, who he has a much more amiable relationship. Boasting similar games, their teams assist each other when defeating their foes. He does find it weird how Shepard's entire personality, weapon loadout, skillset, appearance (including race and gender), even past events in his/her life can randomly and suddenly change without warning, but as long as he/she is pointing his/her gun (or biotic powers) at the enemy and not at him, he's not complaining. It definitely confused the hell out of him the first time, though.
    Marcus: Haven't seen you before. You with Shepard's crew?
    Shepard: What the hell are you talking about, Marcus? I am Shepard.
    Marcus: No, I mean Commander Shepard. You know, blond hair? Mustache? Big scar on his cheek? Got it back when he ran with a street gang on Earth.
    Shepard: A gang? I spent my whole life on military bases and spaceships, how the hell could I join a gang? You were swapping war stories with my mother last week, for God's sake! Don't you remember?
    Marcus: Uh... sure, why not?
    Shepard: I mean, come on! Me, in a gang? As if I'm anything like that freak who keeps randomly changing appearance!
  • It was inevitable that Sold Snake would meet up with the man. There were talks of giving him the title for his iconic bandana, but was ultimately given the title of Stealth. Still, Marcus has never seen him as a rival. In fact, he see's Snake as one of the most reliable soldiers to rely on. Both men become vicious killing machines when they work together.
  • Snake wasn't the only one in contention. Bandana Dee would have been a shoo in if not for the fact that he looks too adorable for the role. Oddly enough, he respects the Waddle Dee as much as any other soldiers. He appreciates someone who breaks ranks to become someone different, much like when he broke off his ties with his noble family.
  • Due to his encounters with them after the sinking of Jacinto, he's not a big fan of pirates, but he can sure as hell respect a marriage in the midst of battle. Fenix welcomed Will Turner into the Pantheon along with Elizabeth Swann.
  • Was weirded out once he saw Bender sounded just like him.

Demigods

    The Spirit 
The Spirit, God of Domino Masks (Denny Colt)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spiritcomic.png
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A Domino Mask
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Fedora of Asskicking, Badass Normal, Celibate Hero, Dating Catwoman, Distressed Dude, Nice Guy, Chick Magnet
  • Domains: Good, Heroes, Masks, Pulp
  • Followers: The Umbrella Academy, The Green Hornet and Kato
  • High Priestess: The Domino Lady
  • Allies: The Phantom, Batman, Dick Grayson and Tim Drake, Hal Gordon, Green Arrow, The Lone Ranger, Zorro, Tuxedo Mask, Humphrey Bogart, Lt. Colombo, Tarzan, Parasol
  • Enemies: The Riddler, The Baroness, Red Skull
  • Rivals: Black Cat, Isabela of Riven, Catwoman, Beaxtrix Kiddo
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Rorschach
  • Somehow stumbled onto the Pantheon with a bit of skill and a lot of luck. Luckily, he was found by fellow pulp hero the Phantom, who managed to find a spot for him in the House of Costumes.
    • He later found out that the Phantom wasn't the only hero from the pulp era in the Pantheon. Zorro formally offered his gratitude for his arrival, followed by implanting his famous mark on his shirt.
  • It was no surprise that Batman would be delighted on his ascension. He and many among his family rely on his masks to protect their identities. In fact, his temple was overrun with various superheroes who wanted to meet up with him to give thanks. Time Drake in particular had hoped that the Spirit would give him additional tips in regards to hiding his secret identity.
    • In fact, The Spirit has teamed up with the Batman in at least one occasion.
  • Not all mask-wearing deities approved; The Riddler was unimpressed in the slightest, regarding of him as a simpleton who only manages to solve crime with dumb luck. He wouldn't say that to the Spirit's face of course, as that would earn him a bloody nose.
  • Despite his status, he just can't stop being captured by the villains he chases after. It got to the point where he almost took Kevin Levin's title away. Nevertheless, he does manage to escape on his own (most of the time).
  • If there's one thing that's sure to throw him off his game, it's the sight of dames. And unfortunately for him, there's a ton of them in the Pantheon. Most vary in the ways they regard the man.
    • The Baroness has used this to particular effect in order to make her getaway. It doesn't always work, but she at least knows that The Spirit is going easy on her.
    • Is often a delight with cat burglars Catwoman and Black Cat. Luckily, these two aren't nearly as evil and the two end up fighting together as much as fighting each other. It's a coin flip who ends up on top.
    • One day, he was challenged to a duel but the Sexy Pirate Isabela , one which he turned down. Shocked but not offended with the rejected, she merely relented and planted a kiss on the cheek before she left. Some say it took hours for him to recover.
  • Has stayed far away from The Bride when he found out what she did to 88 bodyguards wearing masks just like him.
  • He can only tolerate the presence of Rorschach at best; at worst, he calls him a sociopath that can't handle the fact that some people have some gray in them. Rorschach considers his philosophy to be too naive for the Pantheon. It's safe to say that their team-ups get rough at times.
  • If there is one man in the Pantheon he holds dear to, it's Humphrey Bogart. The God of Film Noir played two of the most famous Private Detectives of the time: Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe, both of which were his descendants to the genre. He was quick to pay homage to the actor.
  • Often comes under the employment of Lt. Colombo to capture suspects as he sees The Spirit as a perfect employee. Many underestimate the two before it's too late. The Spirit himself is puzzled how such an aloof man can transform into an ace prosecutor on a whim.
  • Is not a fan of his depiction in the film version. The less said about that version of him, the better.
  • Was initially alarmed when he got word of a Reich regime over in the House of Costumes. Turns out it was all a misunderstanding, as Parasol does not affiliate herself with Nazis.
  • However, there is a god who represents those beliefs. That prompted him to make a deal with Captain America to assist in dealing with the Red Skull as well as his associates.
