    Majora 
Majora, God of Evil Masks (Majora's Mask)
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 Songs: Majora's Theme
  • 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.

    Omega (Doctor Who
Omega, God of Having No Face Under the Mask (Peylix, Omegon, Ohm)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/48df5c80_ea56_4946_86e4_74bdc73052d1.jpeg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His Mask and The Great Hand of Omega
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil (formerly Neutral Good)
  • Portfolio: Always loud, a disturbingly heartbreaking, raw, primal scream, Cool Mask, Dramatic Unmask, Not Even Having A Face Or Body Because Of Antimatter, Broken Pedestal, Creator of Time Lord Technology, Unrewarded Service, Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds, Millions Of Years of Isolation, What trapped him in the antimatter universe, Sealed Evil in a Can, Villainous Breakdown
  • Domains: Antimatter, Rage, Tragedy, Screams, Time
  • Allies: Rassilon, Altair, Malygos, Perturabo
  • On good terms with: The Five Survivors, Dollface (mainly the Black incarnation), Dr Robert Scranton, Flandre Scarlet
  • Enemies: The Doctor, Giratina, Davros and all Dalek deities, The Anti-Monitor, Sirius, Professor Paradox, Marcus Junius Brutus, Akechi Mitsuhide, Shiro Tagachi, Peter Pettigrew and traitors of their friends, AM, Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith
  • Sympathy for the Devil from: The Pantheonic Time Police
  • Opposes: Dr. Weil
  • Annoys: SCP-035
  • Confused by: Hajun
  • Omega is one of The Founders of Time Lord Society along with Rassilon, he is also the founder of The Time Lord's Time Traveling Technology. One day when he attempted to harness the power of supernovas to power their technology, someone sabotaged his machines to explode a star too early, forcing him and his entire ship to plunge into a black hole. Thought dead, the first three incarnations of The Doctor discovered that he never died but merely trapped in the antimatter universe, unable to escape. This drove him to try and force The Doctor to take his place even if his antimatter body would tear apart matter in the universe.
  • He now wants to destroy The Doctor and most of The Time Lords for forcing him to stay in Antimatter so long that it eroded his old body and for leaving him in there. Though The Doctor has attempted to try and tell him otherwise, Omega refuses to hear it. He also wants to take out Professor Paradox in part due to how similar he is to the Doctor, but mostly out of envy for how he escaped 100,000 years of imprisonment by going mad, shifting towards being very sane and gaining knowledge over time through it.
  • On the day of his ascendance Rassilon became overjoyed hoping that Omega will help him in fighting The Last Great Time War. He even allowed him to regenerate, though it has to take time filtering out Antimatter leaving Omega to keep his mask on. The Process has worked for his head and neck and it looks strangely like the face of The Doctor's fifth Incarnation.
  • There's been rumors that Rassilon was the one behind his ship's machines being sabotaged, in order to solidify his power. It's debated whether Rassilon was once a good man or was just a Villain with Good Publicity, but there isn't enough evidence and Omega believes this is propaganda against his friend. It did strike enough of a nerve that he now hates those that betray those close to them.
  • Feels the Time Lords have abandoned him and hates them for that. They didn't know he was alive, but Omega doesn't think rationally nowadays. He's proven problematic for the Pantheonic Time Police and seeks to take them under his and Rassilon's wing, though they do pity the millions of years of isolation he went through, and how antimatter dissolved his body to the point that only his will remains.
  • Although he hates most of the Time Lords he is attempting to kill Davros, the Dalek Time Controller, the Dalek Emperor and Dalek Sec to end the Time War here and now. Omega hates anything to do with anti-matter more than the Time Lords, due to it eroding his body. As such he loathes the Anti-Monitor and Giratina. With the latter, Omega hopes he can discover Giratina's secret of freely traveling from antimatter to matter universes.
  • Screams at the presence of Sirius, as his black hole-induced isolation has turned the astronomical body into a Berserk Button for him. Some of his plots to escape have involved him kidnapping Rick and Morty for their portal technology, also so he and Rassilon can further expand their influence into other universes. He managed to get away from Omega, however the Time Lord seems to understand Rick's own internal pain even if he's an enemy. He figured out that "wubba lubba dub-dub" means "I am in great pain, please help me".
  • Often gets loud and very, VERY, hammy when his plans start to fail or when he decides to gloat, easily claimed to be the hammiest villain of his universe. Is said to competition to Valvatorez for being the largest ham ever, though also not by choice.
  • Having spent eons isolated, he is on good terms with Dr Scranton and Flandre Scarlet even if they don't agree with his methods. The Five Survivors are also a group he's sympathetic towards even if they aren't willing to go along with his villainy, due to their own Fate Worse than Death. On a related note, he loathes AM for inflicting such And I Must Scream situations. Omega is also baffled by Hajun, who is only at peace in total isolation and is even more omnicidal than Rassilon and Omega combined due to wanting the destruction of literally everything besides himself.
  • Does not like people from trying to remove his helmet as he knows that it is all that is left of him until his regeneration kicks in, on a good day it looks like The Fifth Doctor with green veins and yellow eyes, on a bad day there seems to be nothing underneath the mask. SCP-035 is irritated at there being nothing to latch onto. Omega has some sympathy for Dollface, mainly the nicer Black incarnation, for not being able to remove her clothing.
  • He doesn't want to be confused with the Omega from The House of Technology, but will have no problem allying with him for the sake of his own revenge. He won't ally with his master Dr Weil, however. Sure, they suffered a Fate Worse than Death, but for Weil it was a punishment for his genocide and Omega looks down on Weil trying to make life a living death.
  • Alongside his friend Rassilon, he has joined YHVH's Regime under Rassilon's idea of that being the way The Time Lords will evolve under YHVH's Banner. For Omega personally, he perfectly understands the omnicidal frustrations of Altair, and the tragic insanity of Malygos. He also understands the desire for revenge Perturabo has and his feelings of bitterness and mistreatment.

Intermediate Gods

    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)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akuaku_ukauka.png
Aku Aku (left) and Uka Uka (right) in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  • Intermediate Gods (both go up a rank when they are Invincible)
  • Symbol: A Box with either the face of Aku Aku or Uka Uka
  • Theme Songs: Invincible Aku Aku (N. Sane remix) and Invincible Uka Uka (Nitro Fueled remix), respectively
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Aku Aku) and Chaotic Evil (Uka Uka)
  • Portfolio: Floating Masks, Witch Doctor, Cain and Abel, Expressive Mask
  • Domains: Mask, Magic, Voodoo, Good and Evil
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Majora (to Uka Uka)
  • 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.

  • Enemies: The Sumeragi Swordsmen, Zonda and the Seven, All Super Supremacists, William Stryker, Arthas Menethil, Infinite, Senator Armstrong, Mistral, Monsoon, Sundowner, King Sombra, Oryx
  • Special Relationship: The Falcons (former superior to them)
  • The law of the Sumeragi Institute of Human Evolution is absolute. The majority rules here in this world, and the majority in question are the Adepts — humans granted with an affinity for the 7th Lifewave, in other words a Septima. Those who don't possess such abilities in this world are dubbed Minos (as in minority) and are on a steady decline thanks to Sumeragi wanting to wipe them out for good through the efforts of their dispatched personnel. Of them, the stand out member is the personal agent to the Supervisory AI of Sumeragi, Blade, a mysterious swordsmen bearing an electrical Septima... or, rather, should we say a swordswoman bearing an Azure Striker Septima? The story behind Blade is that she was once a Mino herself but in pulling a Heroic Sacrifice to save her fellow comrades, her sister Kohaku included, she was granted a Septima and brainwashed into becoming Sumeragi's specialized enforcer by Demerzel. It's a carry over of his plans involving a "King" and "Queen" for his new world order a century ago where he was forced to put down the older candidates when they couldn't comply with his dream. It wasn't until Copen came along that she'd snap out of her brainwashing and fallout over remembering what she had done that'd she would go on and not only save her sister but also repay his kindness and help in putting down Demerzel for good.
  • Her ascension seems to have come roughly around the time where she and Kohaku reunited with the rest of the Minos kids while carrying an incapacitated Copen and Lola. All she could remember was a bright light and before she knew it Blade and the rest of her friends were in front of the Court of Gods. They concisely explained to her the Pantheon's ins and outs alongside a position she is able to pick up with Blade accepted without question, not just for her sake but for the Minos kids she looked after and all the hell they've been through.
  • Blade's ascension to the Pantheon puts her in an interesting spot with the rest of the Azure Striker Gunvolt Series' deities. This because of the fact that she comes from an Alternate Timeline following a hundred years after Gunvolt and Joule's murder shortly following Nova Tsukuyomi's demise and foiling Project Muse. The relationships between are described at length here.
    • The Court of Gods notified to her that the Copen she knew was but one side of him. While she and Kohaku knew the Copen (under the alias Luminous Avenger iX) as a mysterious stoic but ultimately heroic figure the Copen many people knew instead was of a cold and hateful youth troubled with Black-and-White Insanity against Adept-kind as a whole. A stark contrast to be sure, one that really troubled Blade and her allies, though luckily Copen seems to undergo the former when interacting with them. Call it a particularly odd case of literally bring out the best in a person. Blade hopes that the latter aspect of Copen does grow for the better too.
    • Both Gunvolt and Blade were hesitant at meeting each other and it was quite understandable: Neither of them had any good experiences after meeting another Azure Striker to put it mildly and were half-expecting the other to be not so different from them, even nearly coming to blows at one point. It was only until a third-party came in to help talk things over that they came to understand that both of them are far, far from bad people and in the end they were both greatly wronged by the very same person. With the tension cleared up they now have each other's backs due to how similar they are to one another, even if the fact they share powers were brought about by unfortunate circumstances (ie being made to be Gunvolt's replacement through being implanted GV's Septimal Factors taken from his corpse) but Blade is willing to make the most of it, a piece of advice given to her by Copen after being broken free from her mental reprogramming. And really, it's not too dissimilar to what Gunvolt did with the Septima the Sumeragi Group implanted onto him.
    • The leader of the Swordsmen, Nova Tsukuyomi, was appalled at the state the Sumeragi she knew was in. There was no dancing around it: That Sumeragi Became Their Own Antithesis, betraying everything that they once worked for. As such Nova has labelled Blade as a criminal and a threat to be eliminated, both for her (albeit unwilling) association with the group and for having an affinity to the Septima he originally wanted, much like GV. With all the hell she went through from Sumeragi and that the Sumeragi Group are a different kind of evil there's no real love lost in her opposing him or the rest of the Sumeragi Swordsmen and the Mega-Corp's forces.
    • Zonda seemed the most troubled by Blade's ascension, specifically regarding the world she comes from. While she's glad that the Minos are nearing total extermination what particularly troubles her is the fact that the dream of "an Adept-only paradise" isn't all that is it's cracked up to be if the world Blade comes from is of any indication. The society there is, in short, a Dystopia, not helped by the fact that the head of it all is a terminally insane despot. Still, she and the rest of her forces continue to fight under the belief that it will be different if they succeed. Blade, heaving the dealt with the strife of an Anti-Human Alliance first hand, continues her battles against them and continuously questions Eden as a whole if the world they're fighting for actually will turn out different through their efforts.
  • Much like Gunvolt, the name "Blade" is but a codename granted to her after her transformation into an Adept. Her real name was never stated otherwise and mainly goes by that name in the Pantheon. Though, at least in the case of GV it's been too long since been referred to anything other than Gunvolt or some variation of and has actually forgotten his actual name. While Blade is most likely the same after her brainwashing she at least has Kohaku — someone who knew her before such a tragedy befell her. And yet despite this Blade seems to have stuck for reasons unknown, though such a thing is inevitable due to being a bit of a Walking Spoiler albeit one not as big of a bombshell as Demerzel. At the very least rest of the Minos Kids think its cool so she's perfectly willing to roll with it for them.
    • Her name brings to mind Kazuma Kenzaki (Kamen Rider Blade) and, due to similar naming theme, Tatsu Yamashiro, otherwise known as Katana. Coincidentally enough she'd actually have the pleasure of running into the two of them individually while roaming the Pantheon on her lonesome. Blade has worked with the two of them quite a lot since then, though fighting with Kamen Rider Blade she can't help but be reminded of The Falcons, a team of Sumeragi Institute Adept she technically led. Mind you, it's not just him that brought The Falcons to mind (there's quite a lot of gods who transform to fight, of course, and Kenzaki is far from the only Rider) but still she can't help but think she's living the past but in a better light now.
  • Though Blade was once a Mino she showed a remarkable amount of capability for the Azure Striker Septima, and it truly shows. While able to use similar moves to Gunvolt such as Crashbolt her use of a special segmented sword means the way she demonstrates her dominion over electricity is considerably different from GV. For one, her Whip Sword is a more direct means of offence and her skilled swordsmanship backed by the Azure Striker means she's able to take all manner of foe straight on. It's apparently enough to give someone like Copen a difficult in time in all of the fights they had with one another and in regaining her true self she was able to fend off several Demerzel holograms to buy time for her sister. Said holograms are the copies of a century old Azure Striker who all the ample time to perfect his craft and fight Copen as an equal before unveiling the real deal. So, yes, it's safe to say she's quite strong and made into The Dragon for a reason, even without the enhancements granted by The Butterfly Effect. Still, Blade trains in the House of Combat to hone this newfound skill of hers.
    • Blade has been confronted with the possibility of somehow restoring her "access" to Berserk Trigger and by extension Thunderandal though has politely refused all requests regarding it. Still, the possibility of regaining such power is out in the open, so who knows?
    • In her time around the Pantheon Blade has attracted many a challenger who also wielded weapons similar to hers. There was of course Ivy Valentine, who has that as her title thanks to it being her mainstay, but along came Takahashi Takeda who dual wields them and even The Hunter who has wielded some trick weapons that bring weapons like that to mind.
  • Even after accepting her new situation and even partnering with her predecessor that unease when it came to other superhuman individuals when she was a Mino hasn't quite truly faded. Not helping that sentiment are the people with powers who actually are quite malicious and people like William Stryker who have demonized people like her. Luckily, kindhearted people with powers like the various members of The X-Men are also quite commonplace and have helped eased that sentiments.
  • She quickly came to understanding that people like her aren't at all uncommon in the Pantheon. At present, she has managed to be in good graces with Darth Vader, the originator of the archetype, alongside his grandson Kylo Ren despite the two's rather more ambiguous positions thanks to turning back from their actions and being unambiguously heroic herself. Still, Blade found herself more at home with the likes of The Masked Man and Koichi Kimura thanks to sharing the pain of having their minds rewritten to inherit their positions as opposed to an actual fall from grace. Blade agrees the Masked Man's fate was pitiful, though she can sleep better knowing his freedom stuck in the Pantheon. As he's not much of a talker they two primarily meet through testing eachother's mettle in the House of Combat. As far Koichi she's glad he was able to and reunite and reconcile with his brother and get the rest of his friends on board as Pantheon gods too, of whom she eventually befriended too. Special mention goes out to Junpei, whom shares her element and was already good with GV, and Izumi, whom Blade sometimes train with.
    • Conversely from this, Blade became enemies with both Arthas Menethil and Infinite. While also sharing similarities with Darth Vader neither Arthas or Infinite mean any good where they are now and has expressed nothing but contempt for the two of them. Blade is particularly venomous about Infinite considering how much of infantile manchild he is behind all his power.
  • Has no idea why people are drawn to joking around with her sister's Thigh-High Boots or "joots", as they insist. It's not really aggravating or anything like that, she just wants to understand why it's brought up every time Kohaku is around. It possibly might stem from her sister's... questionable choice in clothing, of which Copen himself and many other gods have commented on multiple times.
  • Finds herself compared to the likes of Jetstream Sam and Raiden by passing gods. The former comes from appearances, specifically in relation to fighting with the antagonists of their stories and their specialized swords and scabbards even if they are fundamentally different. Those who get to know Blade more find she's closer to Raiden overall, mostly when it comes to personality and highlighted further with the lightning motifs he has. Blade has admitted to having assisted Raiden in his ventures around the Pantheon, usually if it concerns the Winds of Destruction and Senator Armstrong, whom she is truly disgusted by after finding out about their enactment of Sears Program, not even wanting to think about the possibilities of the Minos kids falling victim to such schemes. As for Jetstream, who technically is a Wind of Destruction himself but has since jumped ship to become a mercenary again, Blade is distrustful though has on occasion sparred with him and held her own.
  • Being Reforged into a Minion has given Blade not only a fierce hatred to those adept in the ways of mind control, such as with King Sombra and Oryx, but also a great deal of sympathy towards those who went through a similar situation such as her own. She understands the pain the Barian Emperors and Kyoichiro Kuroi/Kamen Rider 3 had gone through, though cannot help feel bad about the fact that they were manipulated into becoming evil. At least she technically chose this route, even if she had no idea her attempt at a Heroic Sacrifice would put her in Demerzel's radar for an agent with the potential to become an Azure Striker.
  • "You used me as your pawn and tormented my comrades, and now... you will pay for your sins!"

  • He absolutely hates Necromancers (except Eucliwood) and won't hesitate to run them through with his Raikiri.
  • He gets along well with Natsu as he too prioritizes his comrades over everything and the latter states that his voice sounds similar to Gildarts.
  • A major mystery surrounding Kakashi, the object of a great deal of conjecture amongst the Pantheon, is what the hell he looks like under the mask. Naruto has revealed that Kakashi wears a secondary mask under the primary one, providing further fuel to the fire. The (very, very) few who've seen his face have refused to provide details, though hints suggest he is uncommonly handsome and that the mask may in fact be a way for him to avoid unnecessary/unwanted attention• .
  • Despite his seemingly-goofy nature and a Deity Title that doesn't exactly sound threatening, Kakashi is respected amongst many combat-oriented Good deities and treated with wariness or fear by many evil ones. He has years of combat experience, a vast arsenal of techniques, an uncommonly high power level, and is adept at using Awesomeness by Analysis in combat, with or without his Sharingan. Speaking of which, while he briefly lost his Sharingan during the battle against Madara & Kaguya, he has since not only regained it, but it has been enchanted to never lose its sight and to drastically cut down on the chakra cost of activation and usage of Mangekyo techniques, akin to the properties of an Eternal MS. This has only made him an even greater threat on the battlefield.
  • Found it a bit odd when his fellow colleague Asuma Sarutobi jokingly stated that in the Ultimate Ninja/Narutimate Hero games, Kakashi, via his swallow motif, has a move with the same name as Asuma's Hien (Flying Swallow) technique. It didn't help that he passed that same swallow motif onto Sasuke's younger-self in the first Storm game.
    • He's also been getting odd looks from Sasaki Kojirou and his "assassin" version in particular; while there have been many references to the famed-Ganryuu swordsman's signature Tsubame Gaeshi (Swallow Return) technique, both of them didn't like it when Kakashi also stole the name of someone else's technique beforehand. Fellow "flying swallow" motif sharer Lu Xun has been warned of them alongside Kakashi beforehand, and he too might get some of Asuma's flak.

  • 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!"

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Respects the Phantom Thieves for doing their own part to protect the Shibuya of their verse and finds himself hanging out with them on occasion, with Futaba especially thanks to them both being former loners with a penchant for wearing headphones.
    • Likewise, he also respects Kazuya for being able to survive his own death-related predicament while being trapped in Tokyo for a week and ends up befriending him as well.
  • 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. However, recent events reveal he might not be in Shibuya at all, but some other world entirely called Quadratum.

Lesser Gods

    Afro & Justice 
Afro & Justice, Dueling Deities of the Martial Arts Headband (Afro: The Number Two | Justice: The Number One, The Three Armed Gunman)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/18863cc2be9f8ce897970f348b794a13.jpg
Justice and Afro
  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: The Number Two and Number One headbands
  • Theme Music:
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral with heavy shades of Chaotic Evil, and sometimes Chaotic Good (Afro); Lawful Neutral with Ambiguously Evil tendencies (Justice)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Combat, Headbands, Goals
  • Herald: Ninja Ninja (for Afro only)
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Erron Black, Samuel Rodrigues, Deadshot
  • Enemies: Each other
  • Dark Counterparts to: The Bride, Sasuke Uchiha, Travis Touchdown (Afro only)
  • In an alternate Japan, headbands have become something of a sign of power and it’s stated that whoever wears The Number One headband is declared the greatest warrior of the land, enough that it’s believed that this specific headband has some godlike property in it. Whoever wears the Number Two headband has the right to challenge the bearer of the Number One headband, but they also end up being the target of other fighters who want the Number Two headband for themselves and thus, the right to challenge that Number One headband wearer. A gunslinger named Justice was once the owner of the Number Two headband and took over the Number One headband via killing its former owner, Rokutaro. Rokutaro was Afro’s father and the then-young kid, having witnessed this murder, vowed revenge. Years later, Afro is now the owner of the Number Two headband and has fought many bloody battles against others, including his former childhood friend Jinno, to get closer to Justice. Afro is able to defeat Justice, but as it turns out, revenge is a volatile thing especially where Afro is concerned as he has been the target of revenge by others because of his own adventure and Justice isn’t really someone who stays dead that easily.
  • Following a long and bloody adventure, Afro found some momentary peace by himself, but rumors of a place far beyond his world began to spread and that place was home to many powerful individuals. That place was known as the Pantheon, which is stated to connect many worlds (including the world where Afro is from) to each other and other rumors related to that place claimed that Justice was still alive and planning his next move at that area. Revenge was something that Afro couldn’t leave behind no matter how hard he tried and given that Justice himself might be plotting some form of revenge against him, Afro knew that his journey would never end and that he would have to keep fighting against those who cross his path. As for Justice, he had truly been plotting revenge for a while and this Pantheon has given him the opportunity to put it in motion. The fact that the Pantheon has had many conflicts over the course of its existence has given Justice plenty of motivation to try and accomplish his plan of bringing about peace by force, whatever that peace could be.
  • Samurai Jack was someone who had plenty of concerns regarding both Afro and Justice, but for different reasons. In Afro’s case, Jack finds Afro’s ordeal troubling, especially since while Afro has had a troubled past, he’s ultimately been consumed by revenge and had to learn the hard way that vengeance was something that isn’t going to go away. Jack has had much more altruistic goals compared to Afro, but came close to losing his way due to a combination of a lack of progress and a malevolent voice in his head (in contrast to Ninja Ninja, Afro’s eccentric, but ultimately benign voice in his head). Jack does understand why Afro’s plight has taken a toll on him, but is aware that he’ll have to fight him if worse comes to worst regarding Afro. As for Justice, Jack isn’t certain about his motivations, but he has a suspicion that Justice’s idea for world peace could end up being a form of tyranny not that different from what Aku inflicted on in the future. Justice was a bit amused at the prospect of fighting another samurai that could potentially threaten his ambitions and while Jack has been on Justice’s sights for a battle, he is more focused on getting retribution on Afro for the time being.
  • Another swordsman that ended up in the crossfire of both Afro and Justice was Samuel Rodrigues, but unlike Jack, Sam has a more morally grey demeanor and is interested in seeing how they fare against him. Of the two, Sam found himself having quite a bit in common with Afro seeing as how Sam went on a quest for vengeance related to his father and was able to pull it off like Afro did, though hearing about how Afro had to fight against his own dad after the latter was the subject of a botched resurrection. As for Justice, he’s simply interested in a battle against a gunslinger and Justice is more than willing to return the favor for battle against another swordsman. While Sam did engage in battle against the two on separate occasions (with both instances getting rather bloody), he’s quite interested in seeing how he would fare in a free-for-all against them and how his worthy rival Raiden would fare against Afro and/or Justice.
  • Both Afro and Justice have had their share of battles against others in the Pantheon and while individually they have fought against different opponents, there are a few in the Pantheon that both have gotten in a fight against, almost always at different intervals. Erron Black, a gunslinging mercenary who has bullets for individual targets, was one such character Afro and Justice have fought against thanks to being targeted by him at different points in time. Justice ended up fighting Erron thanks to someone believing that Justice was a threat to the Pantheon hiring Erron to take him down and a bloody fight ensued, with Justice noticing how Erron’s fighting style isn’t that different from Justice’s own. That fight lasted a while, but both didn’t go down that easily and Justice took notes of Erron’s fighting style to see how to refine his own for later fights. Erron later fought Afro while under the employ of someone who wanted to stop Afro from causing more damage to the Pantheon and dragging others into a violent cycle of revenge. The two put up a good fight that was just as bloody as Erron’s duel with Justice and Afro noticed that how Erron fought was similar to Justice and after that battle, Afro became more than aware of the fact that people are willing to hire mercenaries like Erron to stop Afro.
  • In addition to Erron Black, both Afro and Justice have had their share of encounters against other gunslingers, often due to much of the same reasons Erron Black has gone after the two. While a handful of gunslingers such as Hol Horse were little more than incompetent nuisances in the eyes of both Afro and Justice, there have been plenty of other sharpshooters who the two have engaged in violent battles with, often because said sharp-shooters are hired by someone else to deal with a problem that Afro or Justice might be involved with. With a variety of gunslingers ranging from morally dark mercenaries such as Deadshot to more heroic characters such as McCree, Afro and Justice have often gone into conflict with them and although Afro has mostly tried to ignore a majority of gunslingers in the long run if they haven’t wronged him in any capacity, Justice is more than eager to fight many of the more skilled sharpshooters, especially since a good number of them have their own gimmicks to make them stand out among others like them.
  • Given Afro’s morally ambiguous, if not outright unscrupulous nature, he’s not one to have allies in the long run, though there are a few who went through similar scenarios like he did that can understand his ordeal. Like Afro, Ninja Slayer embarked on a violent quest for revenge in a morally dark world after a family member was murdered. While both of their quests ended with them causing much more problems than there were before, Kenji Fujikido at the very least has some moral standards compared to Afro and has tried to fight against his own Enemy Within to prevent succumbing to his worst vices. Beatrix Kiddo (aka The Bride) was another sword-wielder who went on a violent revenge spree, but unlike Afro who never had anyone to keep his violent traits in check (even then Ninja Ninja is merely just a voice inside his head), she has a daughter she cared about and it served as a reason to move on from life as an assassin. Kenji and Beatrix do have their reasons for revenge and while they didn’t try to let it consume their life (moreso for Kenji given what he had to go through), Afro’s seemingly unending desire for it despite attempts to let go of it has given the two reason to help out, assuming that anyone innocent who had nothing to do with Afro doesn’t get involved. Justice merely saw Kenji and Beatrix as more fighters to go up against, but if they’re willing to work with Afro to take down Justice, then he’s eager for such a challenge.
  • Despite appearing stoic on the outside, if Afro isn’t truly showing that, then he has plenty of rage on the outside and he isn’t afraid to show it if something truly sets him off. This ended up getting the attention of Atrocitus, a major figure of the Red Lanterns who are driven by rage. The biggest source of rage that fuels their power for most Red Lanterns is grief and loss of someone they cared about and what Afro went through is something that Atrocitus can relate to given how not only was Atrocitus’ wife and daughter killed, but so was his entire race. Atrocitus can tell that Afro still has a lot of anger pent up inside of him and even saw him as a potential candidate to become a Red Lantern and although Afro hasn’t taken up on the offer yet, Atrocitus is someone who Afro is willing to talk to given their similar backstories. Many don’t know what to make of the possibility of Afro becoming a Red Lantern as while him gaining additional powers alongside his swordsmanship will make him even more of a fearsome target, there are plenty of more morally reprehensible figures that are significantly strong that Afro can go after if they anger him in all the wrong ways.
  • One particular deity who went through a revenge journey quite similar to that of Afro’s was Sasuke Uchiha, but things between the two are rather strained given how different their adventures ended. Not helping matters is how, in their respective quests for revenge, Afro and Sasuke had a falling out with their respective friends and while Sasuke did eventually get over his desire for revenge and tried to rebuild his life, it’s unclear whether or not the same can be said about Afro. Sasuke did see a dark reflection of himself in Afro as what might happen if Sasuke never got over his desire for revenge to the point of being self-destructive.
  • Travis Touchdown is no stranger to being on the giving and receiving end of vengeance and after learning about who Afro is and what he went through, he noticed just how much of a near-total opposite to Afro Travis truly was. Afro was very stoic, with anger often being the only other emotion he has by default and Travis has a more vulgar personality, but despite that, Travis gradually developed a moral backbone across his adventures while Afro became more unscrupulous as he targeted more people to get his revenge. As a swordsman who has endured many battles, Travis knew that he’d probably end up involved in whatever conflict Afro and Justice have against each other at some point and since Afro has a no-nonsense mindset, Travis knew that trying to talk to Afro about how not so different they are when it comes to the Cycle of Revenge would be difficult.
  • Justice sought to use the Number One headband in order to bring peace to a bleak landscape by force. Although the Pantheon is a much larger world that isn’t as bleak by comparison, Justice believes that what he saw of that place isn’t enough for full peace and intends to achieve his goal, regardless of whether that headband is involved or not. There are plenty in the Pantheon that have a similar goal as he does, though they have different ways of going about it and often not in Justice’s favor. Some such as YHVH and Malthael want to eliminate free will, a goal that Justice doesn’t appear to have alongside his “peace at all costs” mentality (and he really doesn’t share Malthael’s misanthropic mindset about humans as well). Others such as Gilbert Durandal believe in peace via giving humans specified roles should he succeed with pulling off his plans for such, though no one is certain if that kind of mindset is part of what Justice really wants for the world. Then again, it’s hard to say what Justice’s true motives are other than that he’ll fight others in order to gain the power to bring peace to what he perceives as a world in ruin.

    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.

  • 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!"

  • Followers: Ryoga Hibiki, 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.

    Walter Kovacs/Rorschach 
Walter Joseph Kovacs, God of Expressive Masks (Rorschach)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rorschach_gibbons.png
"Men get arrested... dogs get put down!"
  • Despises the Seven for being corrupt, hedonistic "superheroes". The irony is that much like them, he is a Corrupted Character Copy of a more noble and righteous character in the Question. In his case, he deconstructs the objectivist morality. The Question himself has difficulty working with Rorschach, though they share enough in common along with being conspiracy nuts to at least work with him. Interestingly there's a universe, Earth 4, where the two are one and the same in many ways. Same can be said of many other characters.
  • Was interested to learn the premise of his story was going to use the Charlton Comics characters, but higher-ups said no so Alan Moore made a Cast of Expies. Dr Manhattan is based off Nathaniel Adam, and Nite Owl off Ted Kord...which made Earth 4 make a surprising amount of sense to him. Given Dan Dreidberg might be his only friend, he was interested in Ted Kord's refusal to compromise and some of his objectivist leanings and wanted to make him an ally. However he considers Rorschach a bit too crazy for that.
  • Asexual, to the point of finding sex disgusting. Having a Madonna–Whore Complex, he rails at both Lust sub-houses and considers Slaanesh an abomination. Well, more so than the other Chaos Gods due to their corruptive nature and embodying emotional extremes. All attempts to convince him that the Lust sub-houses are worthwhile have failed and he wishes to never set foot there. A few have their lust piqued even if he'll just be disgusted, as if you ignore his face and the homeless stank he has a well-built body.
  • His aversion to lust comes from the fact that he is a Son of a Whore. Not only was he the subject of bullying because of this, but his mother was not a Hooker with a Heart of Gold, but an abusive bitch who Rorschach was pleased to learn died. He has an aversion to all prostitutes in the pantheon. Having a kid of her own, Lianne pities him. He is just disgusted by her son, and Eric Cartman hates him on instinct for being a ginger; he claims that Rorschach wears his mask to cover up for the fact he doesn't have a soul. Cartman himself turned out to have a ginger father, which bummed him out way more than realizing he killed him as part of a Familial Cannibalism Surprise because a bully scammed him.
  • Nite Owl finally ascending at least gives Rorschach a reason to wander in more populated environments, specially to reform their old partnership when they beat up some evil deities. Dan's current girlfriend Laurie, the Silk Spectre, is one of the few women Rosrchach is willing to respect and downright collaborate with. But remains on bad terms with the fellow Watchmen deities; Ozymandias for concocting that plan, and Dr. Manhattan for not only agreeing, but causing his death. Learning Jon had rebooted the entire DC Multiverse didn't help at all. While Rorschach has a begrudging respect to the Comedian, he can't look past all of Edward's morally reprehensible actions (raping Silk Spectre, shooting a pregnant prostitute).
  • Regards Superman with supreme mistrust, and is disgusted by most other costumed heroes. However, while he muttered direly about artists and liberals upon meeting Captain America, he will respond to slurs on the good Captain's name with extreme violence. While he dislikes that The Punisher uses guns instead of his bare hands to punish criminals, the two have an uneasy truce due to their fondness of staring into the Abyss. At one point they accidentally switched (War) Journals, no one noticed until Deadpool pointed out that their journal monologue boxes were the wrong colour.
  • Hates Tyler Durden(his lustful, anarchic, Nietzsche Wannabe antithesis), with whom he has a territorial dispute. Hates hedonists in general. Doesn't care for Lord Byron, which is rather ironic given that he'd be classified as a Byronic Hero himself.
  • Even if he left his mortal coil in 1986, has shown a fondness for The Smashing Pumpkins, and even uses one of their songs as a theme. While it was written for a Batman movie, The Dark Knight sees no problem, as he finds the lyrics to fit Rorschach and is still wishing to forget said movie.
  • Doesn't understand why people compare him to Freddy Krueger, who he considers one of the filthiest people in the Pantheon.

  • So picture this; everything is going well in a supposedly normal and quiet town and everyone is minding their own business. Suddenly, a string of murders pop up with bodies showing up with grievous stab marks and the walls having a quote written in the victim's blood; "What's your favorite scary movie?". Suddenly, the town and its inhabitants go into a panic as a Serial Killer is on the loose, playing vicious mind games to its victims, particularly teenagers and horror movie fans and gleefully mocking, torturing, and killing them when they get the chance. Eventually, the killer is revealed to be someone wearing a cheap black robe with an equally affordable white mask that resembles a ghost. Thus, the legend of the Ghostface Killer was born, killers who wound up getting inspired by watching too many horror movies and decided to enact as a Slasher Movie menace. Why? Because it's fun and exhillirating, in addition to having supposedly personal reasons.
    • The Ghostface Killers vary in their goals and motives, but a very consistent trait, apart from their insane and vicious mindset is that they have some kind of personal connection with Sidney Prescott. In fact, she happens to be related to them in some way and predictably enough, she ends up being the main killing target for the killers and they usually end up being killed by Sidney or her playing a role in their deaths. Billy Loomis was her boyfriend, Roman Bridger was her half-brother via their mother Maureen being raped and Jill is Sidney's cousin. Stu Macher and Debbie Salt, while not as personally connected get involved anyway, with the former being a conspirator and fellow Ghostface for Billy and Debbie being Billy's mother and plotting a revenge scheme against Sidney for killing her son. Regardless, whatever their excuses are, Sidney (and everyone else) will simply tell them there's no point in explaining it as the killers are all more motivated by the gratification they get from insulting, torturing, and killing someone.
  • The story of Ghostface was popular in the Pantheon, due to the killers having received some sort of martyr-like reputation after their demises, much to a lot of people's dismay, especially Sidney. The worst that can be hoped is for them to actually ascend, which actually did happen when the House of Crime became a hubspot for black cloak and white mask merchandising. It is unknown who was the first Ghostface to ascend to the Pantheon, though most guess it was either Billy or Jil, the former for being the first and most influential of the killers (though it was really Roman who encouraged them to take notes in Slasher Movie media and become killers themselves) or Jill for being the most successful of the lot. Regardless, the fact that the Ghostface Killers are in the Pantheon has become a worrying thought for a lot of people.
  • It should be noted that each and every killer has some distinct differences from one another, though, at the very least, Billy, Stu, and Debbie are willing to work together, with them figuring that doing so would improve their success factor in terrorizing people and getting a sick kick out of it. That said, Debbie is motivated less by sadism and more by wanting to get another shot at killing Sidney. Her own death has seemed to have gotten her more obsessed with revenge and probably a lot more insane than she was in her mortal life. Roman and Jill, on the other hand, are more on their own, but still make it up with their resourcefulness, tenacity, and their willingness to pull every dirty trick on the book to get what they want. They're also the worst of the bunch and take far more enjoyment out of the usual evil acts of Ghostface than the other three do.
  • Billy and Debbie had a happy reunion but considering who they are, no one was willing to celebrate the occasion, instead just calling the two of them out for being demented and selfish. This was most apparent on Debbie; for all of her affection towards Billy, it was revealed that she was actually neglectful of her son, but Debbie outright hates to be reminded by this and unhesitantly kills whoever criticizes her within her hearing range. The more benevolent and neutral occupants of the House of Family in general heavily dislike Billy and Debbie, though the two of them aren't really fond of The Child Abuse Supporters themselves either.
  • "Do you like scary movies" is something that the killers would always say, though, on occasion, they would also say "What's your favorite scary movie". They do this via prank calls in the hopes of catching one's attention and initially starting off harmless with general trivia and questions about horror films. That is, until questions about someone's personal life and information start to get asked, whereupon Ghostface really starts to find an enjoyable time in getting to mock and ridicule someone. Of course, this is followed by suddenly storming into the residence of the individual they've called in an attempt to kill them.
    • For their own amusement, Billy decided to call Bart Simpson after learning how he tends to make prank calls towards others, especially his schoolmates and teachers. Surely enough, the call started seemingly innocent, though Bart proved to be rather annoying. It was a coordinated action to get Stu to suddenly ambush Bart. Fortunately, he was able to make a quick getaway and call the attention of cops, much to Billy and Stu's dismay. They've also tried to do the same thing towards Kayla Day, though she actually ended up not responding as apparently, she got a note not to respond to a certain phrase on the phone, which happened to be Ghostface's catchphrase. Touche Turtle was another victim of their prank calls and for a moment, he stopped making and responding to calls because of just how terrified he was in a close encounter with Ghostface. While he did eventually recover, he's since been warier about his favorite hobby and wants to see Ghostface be bought to justice.
    • An organization known as 50 Blessings used phone calls to contact various sorts of killers to do murders on their behalf. Despite the promising premise, Ghostface actually didn't go on board with them. As it turns out, 50 Blessings politically-motivated aims ended up getting the countries of the United States and Russia into nuclear war, and Ghostface found this to not gravitate towards their own need for self-gratification. Plus, getting phone calls out of nowhere to carry out specific kills wasn't something Ghostface was going to do; they'd rather choose their own victims. Speaking of the killers themselves, The Fans are far too volatile to really work with, so their relationship with Ghostface is just competitive rivalry at best to see who could cause the most kills and urban uproar in the location of choice regarding their killing sprees.
  • Ironically, yet unsurprisingly enough, they are hated and feared by most other horror and slasher fans for their depravity and their selfish desire for attention. Despite her love for horror-related stuff, Koume Shirasaka does everything she can to avoid Ghostface, and on the occasion that they've close to her vicinity, Koume is frightened to the point of rushing to her fellow idol friends for comfort and assurance. Haru Okumura, a member of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, has dealt with a series of horrible beings and with the Ghostface Killers being no different from them, thinks that they deserve to have their heart changed. Ghostface, Jill, in particular, is only more motivated in targeting the two of them, but especially their friends and family out of spite.
  • Ghostface has had several altercations with cops and even killed some of them. Thus, a natural enmity was formed between the killers and those in the House of Justice where many in the Halls of Detectives and Officers are determined to try putting a top to the random attacks and rampages the killers potentially cause. That said, Ghostface is a lot more frustrating to deal with than you'd expect; costume aside, they don't look like they would be killers and they could easily blend into society whilst acting as humanly as possibly. They've caught some cops off-track, though a few have managed to figure out their identities, much to Ghostface's anger.
    • They also caught the ire and disgust of a few criminals. It says a lot when Trevor Philips, a renowned psychopathic manic, expresses nothing but disdain for Ghostface, with Michael DeSanta reciprocating the feeling. To Trevor, for all his faults, he genuinely admires and respects loyalty above all else, and most of the Ghostface identities, especially Jill, are willing to throw that aside just for fame, not to mention he, Michael, and close associate, Franklin Clinton, went on to track down and take down a Serial Killer named Dreyfuss. John Donovan, a Rogue Agent, also doesn't like Ghostface one bit and has made sure to track down and make a profile out of them for the authorities to get an advantage on. Donovan himself has dealt with serial killers, mainly in the mafia business, so the idea of one that uses pop culture references to torture others and killing them out of sadism and pathetic justifications understandably rubs him the wrong way.
  • For all of their determination and their ruthlessness, there is one figure who has managed to outright terrify the Ghostface Killers just by his reputation and his presence; Batman. Beyond the fact that he's dealt with criminals and killers for quite some time, The Dark Knight, despite his no-kill policy, is outright brutal and unforgiving when it came down to the wicked and unrepentant, traits which the Ghostface Killers embodied. Even worse, Batman knows about the identities and this knows exactly how to track them down, befitting of his status as a detective. While those using the Ghostface identity would normally go about with their killing spree relentlessly, they will immediately panic and run away as fast as they can the moment they learn that The Dark Knight is in their vicinity. Trying to fight back is also fruitless, for Batman knows each and every trick they would pull out, and engaging him in combat would end in swift defeat.
    • The Ghostface Killers have also come to become wary of Sherlock Holmes due to his masterful detective skills and work, and the fact that he has dealt with the supernatural is more than enough to make him more than just a detective. While not as fearsome and intimidating as Batman, Ghostface tends to be a lot more restrained if they ever hear that Sherlock is involved in a case about them. And despite their knack for using phone calls as nasty pranks that lead to something worse, they've come to fear Sadako Yamamura because of her connection with phones. Sometimes, Ghostface would be wary in case they ever get a phone call, hoping it's not Sadako. That, and making sure not to check out the videotapes that have become so notoriously associated with her.
  • Being fans of slasher movies, they were obviously awed at the prospect of having to meet the killers that they saw in films. Jason Voorhees was one that caught the most intrigue with them, especially for Debbie. Given that both are driven by a desire for vengeance, with Jason wanting to make his mother, Pamela, proud by taking out his rage towards anyone who stumbled across Camp Crystal Lake whereas Debbie wants to kill Sidney and her loved ones for killing her son, it seemed that the two had something in common. Except Jason doesn't really care about this and instead sees Ghostface as intruders, to Debbie's dismay. That doesn't stop the Ghostface identities from admiring Jason though.
  • Inevitably, they would come to cross paths with Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers. Despite their shared depravity and compulsion to killing, and at least Jill's (supposed) thoughts of tagging along, they weren't up for a partnership; most of the killers, being teenagers, were Freddy's main age range regarding his victims and his drooling intent to hunt them did not sit well with them. That said, Freddy did compliment their "evilness" to some extent, but a team-up is unlikely. Michael, on the other hand, has proven himself time and again that he is beyond control and any attempts to associate with him would be a roadblock at best and a future victim at worst. All Ghostface could do is ensure they don't cross paths with Michael if he's on a hunting spree, lest things get really ugly on their side. Plus, Michael doesn't give a damn about them anyway, only concerned with finding and putting an end to Laurie Strode, who's also come to despise the Ghostface killers for taking a disturbing inspiration from Michael and using it to kill others.
  • Speaking of infamous slasher figures, there were many of that kind to come across. However, the only one that Ghostface was able to make a genuine partnership with was the killer doll, Chucky. Both had an insane and sadistic sense of humor, which Chucky appreciated as he felt that trying to troll others before killing them was a great way to make comedy and that painting yourself as a false hero was a good way to troll, whereas Ghostface saw praise in the Killer Doll's utter tenacity and unwillingness to give up. Alas, it was a suitable and effective partnership, though Chucky is wary of Jill, given that she would kill even her own cohorts if it means either gaining something out of it or they run out of convenience. Not that Chucky himself is any better...
  • When learning that a certain Comedy Horror was often compared their exploits, the Ghostfaces considered that while the Babyface Killer was as successful and persistent as them (even if with only one intended victim... and wearing a much more ridiculous mask), the survivor that got ascended needs to learn what a real masked killer looks like. And doesn't matter if Tree now fights them back - it's not like every Ghostface didn't receive doors and anything the victims had at hand thrown at them.
  • Junko Enoshima found the idea of dressing up as a cheap getup, only to turn the act into a notorious symbol for horror and killers to be very much entertaining and worth looking up to. As a result, she felt as if Ghostface would make for a really good company as they share a similar desire of bloodthirst and sadism. She, however, wants to teach them despair, believing that they would be way better if they went that route. Junko expressed praise for them using phone calls and pranks to mentally harm their victims and really liked Billy, Stu, and Jill for being more than willing to learn how to break one's hope for their own means. That way, Junko thinks her future ideas for the Killing Game will be a lot more gratifying if the Ghostface Killers were to act as those who would kill students and drove others into despair.
    • Among those who came to praise Ghostface was Lionel Starkweather, a Snuff Filmographer who was interested in how Ghostface, in general, was motivated by a desire for popularity and infamy. Like himself, he quickly saw how the killers, especially Jill, were completely insane and deranged, which only further endeared him to the idea of working with them in an effort to provide mutual assistance. Lionel could work with Roman to improve and provide for each others' filming equipment and skills and work to improve their craft and find more creative ways to catch footage whenever a killing spree is taking place. Lionel expressed praise for Jill being able to portray herself as a Final Girl in her footage before death and seeks to find a way in creating more scenes similar to that one.
    • Similar to at least Billy, Stu, Roman, and Jill, Tsumugi Shirogane and Annie Wilkes are also crazed fans, with the former being obsessed with a fiction work called Danganrompa that involved death and was an attempt at imitating real life. The latter wanted to kill her favorite author for daring to kill off her favorite character in her favorite book, so the fact that both were insane was something in common with Ghostface. Insanity aside, they all get along pretty well, with Ghostface providing further inspiration for Tsumugi and Annie taking notes in becoming more resilient and determined in her goals and dealing with potential enemies. They were even offered to take up the Ghostface mantle themselves, which both were enticed by, though only Tsumugi accepted the offer as this gives her the opportunity to witness how to inflict death directly whilst also causing despair to her victims, much like Junko.
    • Their Attention Whore tendencies bought the attention of Manny Pardo. Initially, Ghostface was worried about another police officer being involved in stopping, but to their pleasant surprise, Manny is actually a Serial Killer who became jealous of a fellow co-worker and wanted to copy his fame and desire. Jill found this extremely noteworthy and thought having a potential partner-in-crime with a similar motive can benefit her. Manny thought the same thing and since then, they sometimes work as an Evil Duo with a scary level of competency in their crime, though some speculate that Jill is waiting for a time to backstab and kill Manny so that she could take the fame for herself. Whether Manny knows this or not is unknown at the moment.
  • As with all other subjects of horror, Ghostface is a subject of interest for the Bedtime Stories Crew, who have covered similar stories before as well. That said, they do want to make it really clear that they have no association with Ghostface whatsoever, especially Roman, and their product is simply meant to be a documentary that illustrates and describes their topics' actions. As for Ghostface, some of them take satisfaction out of getting regarded, but the crew instead express dismay and disgust over them, which motivated them to tell their audiences to never let their obsession overwhelm them. Ghostface is since disappointed and vows to kill the crew at some point.
  • There has been reports of another Ghostface Killer who operates in Utah and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and goes by the moniker of the Ghost Face Killer. So far, the figure has been a fascinating subject for the ascended Ghostface Killers and seek to getting him ascended in the Pantheon at some point. Though in the process, the familiarity has caused them to be enemies with Ash Williams, Heather Mason and Bill Overbeck, who think they're no better than Ghost Face. The Hawkins Party think that they should try to fight against the Demogorgon because chances are, they've met. Ghostface would rather focus on those (mostly) nerdy kids than a vicious, freaky creature that they know wouldn't really stand a chance against.

  • 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. Tim 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.
