    • His title was once shared with Megumi Aino and Steven Universe due to their similar personalities. They are still close allies despite not sharing the same title any longer.
  • His All Loving nature is the main reason why he manage to control his powers as Kuuga, especially when he successfully access the Ultimate Form without warping his mind. Due to this, he also managed to impress Madoka Kaname since she also possess a similar traits as he does.
  • At one point, Yusuke talked to a younger Miyuki Hoshizora who was crying after she lost her parents, while Godai also tells her about his similar experience in his younger age and using his juggling skills to make Miyuki stop crying before her parents found her and thanking him before Yusuke leaves with a thumbs up on Miyuki.

  • He gets along with Miku Kohinata due to being a Nice person just like him.

  • As he fought, he made several evil-aligned deities in the pantheon, such as Johan Liebert and his Liebertarian Movement, Monokuma, Kyubey, Griffith, and the Trollkaiger, due to their immorality and they spread despair-induced chaos that causes many good-aligned deities in the pantheon breaks into the very depressive state. Because of this, he resolves to fight them in order to prevent this happening in the pantheon.
    • This reason has also made him supportive towards Makoto Naegi, Akane Tsunemori, and Haru Glory due to their shared compassionate attitudes as they also wanted to prevent this tragedy as well.

Demigods

    Makoto Naegi 
Makoto Naegi, Bringer of Hope (Super High-School Level Good Luck, Ultimate Lucky Student, Super High-School Level Hope, Ultimate Hope, Super High-School Level Screams-Like-A-Bitch, Ultimate Generic Anime Protagonist, Headmaster of Hope's Peak Academy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d3724134_a7da_488b_9869_f5a23995071b.png
Danganronpa 3 
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A Truth Bullet engraved with the word "Hope"
  • Theme Song: "Never Say Never", "Kibō no Dangan", "Saisei -rebuild-" (sung by his voice actress), "Progressive -Zan Shin-" (also shared with Komaru)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Optimism (and bringing it), NEVER giving in to despair, having 'good' luck, Wide-Eyed Idealist, supposed averageness, Amateur Sleuths, pointing out that 'it's wrong', being extraordinarily nice and forgiving.
  • Domains: Hope, Good, Kindness, Sincerity, Deduction.
  • Allies:
  • Conflicting Opinion: Nagito Komaeda
  • Enemies: Junko Enoshima & Monokuma, Monaca Towa, Tsumugi Shirogane, Shocker, Johan Liebert, Light Yagami, The White
  • He ascended after he destroyed the event of High School of Mutual Killing engineered by Monokuma and bringing about several survivors, keeping them from falling to despair. Nobody expected him to be the one to pull it off, since they think Naegi is average. But... his constant optimism made it happen. Right now, he's working to rehabilitate victims of Monokuma.
  • Cosmos saw it fit that he be put in this House, as he's always ready to yell "YOU MUST NOT GIVE UP HOPE!" whenever things go south for the force of Good, which contributes as big as any strong or intelligent force of good anyway. Philemon is also impressed, he saw Naegi's undying spirit as one shining example of how Nyarlathotep will be proven wrong.
  • Even if he survived or ascended, Naegi is known to have never gotten over the other victims of the High School of Mutual Killing. As long as he's in his seat, he would keep the memories of his deceased friends no matter if they're amoral, Maizono Sayaka, Kuwata Leon, Fujisaki Chihiro, Oowada Mondo, Ishimaru Kiyotaka, Yamada Hifumi, Celestia Ludenberg/Yasuhiro Taeko, Oogami Sakura... Which strengthens his drive to spread the hope.
    • That being said, Naegi was actually surprised to see his 'friend' Maizono Sayaka hanging around the 765 Pro group. A slightly tearjerking and heartwarming reunion occurs as Maizono repeatedly apologized for trying to frame him during the High School of Mutual Killing, in tears. Naegi responded by saying that whatever her reason is, he never blamed her. Since he got his duties, he kindly asked Maizono's recruiter, Haruka Amami, to take good care of her.
    • He's actually surprised that Celes also made it to the Pantheon, despite witnessing her execution. Instead of being paranoid that she would restart her amoral scheme to fulfill her dream, Naegi instead takes it that dying as victim or executed in High School of Mutual Killing doesn't mean they won't meet again in the Pantheon. He now resolves to reunite with the other Hope Peak Academy's students. After seeing Oogami inducted, Naegi rejoiced.
  • To many deities and mortals, Naegi is no hero... but heroine, the actual hero being Kirigiri.
  • He gets along really good with Makoto Nanaya, as they find a lot in common, not just the name, but how they treat friends and how they 'thwarted' their despair-loving enemies (Monokuma and Terumi). Naegi also bonds with Shinji Ikari, and promises that if he would fall down in depression for whatever reason, he'll think up something and say "That's wrong!"
  • They say that secretly before even going to Hope Peak's Academy, he trained in finding contradictions and spewing objections from none other than Phoenix Wright. He's 'training' a successor, Hajime Hinata. But... about that Komaeda guy? Naegi felt a little... off.
    • He, fortunately, has more success in rehabilitation former Ultimate Despair members in form of Mikan Tsumiki, that is, he had to ask Litchi Faye-Ling, Mikan's former superior, to take extra care for her. But then, in the wake of Morality Civil War, where Litchi was arrested and Mikan being unstable again, several cynical Gods said that it was inevitable because she was put under someone who'd 'selfishly kill everyone else for the sake of a blob boyfriend' and Naegi made a fatal mistake of entrusting her to Litchi in the first place. Naegi vehemently denied that, saying that regardless of the ongoing slander, he still trusts Litchi's good side and Mikan's full recovery, if there's something he's proud of, it's probably that he's a lot more optimistic and gung-ho about things.
      • Chiaki Nanami has joined him in helping to rehabilitate the rest of Ultimate Despair, due to her role in the Neo World Program After the calmer ascensions of Sonia and Pekoyama, she seems to be helping. Also, after her ascension, Sayaka Maizono has joined the two of them in this, as she wants to help them in the same manner 765 Pro helped her.
      • Alongside the Future Foundation, he was quite pleased to see Usami ascend into the pantheon proper, and she ensured him that Monokuma and Junko will have a MUCH harder time performing their killing games.
  • As a fellow Hope Bringer, he is great friends with Madoka Kaname. This is only one reason why he shouted "That's wrong!" during the Great Upheaval. In the following Pantheonic Rebellion, he assisted the Magical Sisterhood by pointing out contradictions in the rhetoric of the Homucifier splinter faction and thereby reduced the converts and causalities.
    • It was also by Naegi's influence that Madoka eventually has had enough of the Sisterhood blaming the Investigation Team for their association with Lucifer. It started with Kirigiri learning about the splinter thanks to sharing a house with Naoto Shirogane and invited Naegi to a debate session about it. When a member of the Sisterhood said something about 'Yu Narukami summons Lucifer, thus he's in cahoots'... that's where Naegi shouted out "No, that's wrong!" and makes a thorough explanation that while Yu can summon Lucifer, it's a very rare occasion and before the whole Great Upheaval happened, afterwards he hasn't been summoning Lucifer out of his disgust of the Upheaval, leading Madoka to finally realize that the Sisterhood blew things out of proportion and gave them a reprimand.
  • Naegi found himself drawn into the Monochrome Forest on one occasion, where he met The White. The White attempted to break his spirit, accusing him of 'abominable cruelty' in convincing the students of Hope's Peak to take a chance in the outside world, where he had no way of knowing if they would survive. Naegi, in turn, proclaimed their attempts to destroy the universe doesn't even take what other people want into account, and they thus had no place to talk to him about cruelty. Enraged, The White stranded him in the Monochrome Forest; he spent two days wandering the pocket dimension and dodging demons before Flynn managed to slay The White and track him down. Naegi was initially mistrustful of the Samurai: he had heard Flynn had killed the apostles of his friend Madoka after the Great Upheaval. Flynn explained that they had forced his hand: they had been driven to despair to the point they had attacked the Yamato Reactor, which would have destroyed the universe, While he would do it again if it came down to it, he wasn't proud of what he had done. After speaking for a while and realizing they had more in common then they had previously thought, the two of them have started to become friends.
  • Thanks to Touko Fukawa, Makoto reunited with his sister Komaru Naegi. The two were able to support each other, in order to get through the news that Komaru brought regarding their parents' fate. Makoto is talking with his sister about if she wants to ascend, and if she wants to share his position, or if she wants to make a seat for herself.
    • Eventually, Komaru managed to get a spot in the Pantheon and resides in the same house as Touko.
  • He became friends Judai Yuki. It was almost Friendship at First Sight when they first met each other, due to having similar views on idealism and both being Born Lucky (Though Makoto went Blue with Shock when he learnt of how quickly Judai became a Friendly Rival of Celes).

    Raleigh Becket and Mako Mori 
Raleigh Becket and Mako Mori, God and Goddess of Warrior Humanity and Neural Bridges
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/raleigh_becket_and_mako_mori.jpg
  • Demigods (Greater Gods when using their mecha)
  • Symbol: Gipsy Danger
  • Theme Music: "Pacific Rim Main Theme"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Mecha, Mental Links, Awesome, Determination, Warrior Humanity.
  • Superior: Guillermo Del Toro
  • Allies: Mako Reizei, Optimus Prime, Master Chief, Martin Walker, Setsuna F. Seiei, Shinji Ikari, Rei Ayanami, Asuka Langley Soryu/Shikinami.
  • Enemies: King Ghidorah and any other evil Kaiju
  • Ascended upon defeating the Kaiju menacing Earth, and a little Headbutt of Love at their both living through their hellish war experiences.
  • They pilot Gipsy Danger, a Humongous Mecha so humongous that piloting it alone would cause massive neural damage.
  • Despite not passing The Bechdel Test, Mako is much loved by feminist gods/goddesses, for her strength and portrayal as a character. She, being a bit of a perfectionist, doesn't think that that's enough.
  • While Raleigh often prefers to be left alone, whenever there's ass-kicking to be done for the side of good, you'd better bet that he's going to be with Mako in their Jaeger Gipsy Danger doing it.
  • Share a Psychic Link called a Neural Bridge. Can do it very well for people who aren't related, although they do suffer hardships with both of the pilots' horrific pasts.
    • Raleigh lost his brother, while mentally connected to him. Mako is the sole survivor of a version of Tokyo. They've both now decided not to let this get in the way of their future.
  • What sets them apart is not their martial arts skill or anything like that. It's their drift-compatibility.
  • After hearing what YHVH planned to do to Madoka, both of them have joined the Pantheonic Rebellion, because "Humanity always needs hope".
  • Raleigh is heavily compared to Ragna the Bloodedge and Kyon, mainly due to the fact that they share the same Japanese voice. Likewise, Mako also is heavily compared to Ranma, Yui Ikari, Rei Ayanami and Lina Inverse due to having the same Japanese voice.
  • Both Mako and Raleigh feel a strong sense of kinship toward the young Evangelion pilots due to the similar circumstances of having to fight to protect their worlds from giant alien monsters, as well as sympathy for the various traumas the children have endured. Although they recognize Shinji, Asuka, and Rei as capable warriors in their own right, they are nonetheless very protective of the children and have pledged to help them whenever they can.
    • After hearing about Shinji and Asuka's synchronized takedown of the Seventh Angel, Raleigh and Mako tried to talk the children into attempting a Neural Bridge to see if they were drift-compatible, believing it might be helpful to them both in combat and for their emotional well-being. However, upon being told that the Neural Bridge involves a literal linking of minds and sharing of thoughts and memories, Shinji and Asuka both vehemently declined the offer, saying they "just weren't ready to let someone else in like that."
  • Are still trying to wrap their brains around the concept of "Good" Kaiju, such as Godzilla and Gamera, given all giant monsters they met were mindless beasts bent on destruction. Not that they're out of a "job", as the fact King Ghidorah and other 'traditional' kaiju are present makes them highly requested to bring in Gipsy Danger for containment.
  • Would rather prefer if Pacific Rim: Uprising isn't mentioned in their presence, as they consider that movie made by people who just wanted to kill them. (Raleigh doesn't even get the dignity of having that on screen!)

    Roy Greenhilt 
Roy Greenhilt, God of the Struggle Between Good and Order
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/roy_oots_6515.png
  • Demigod (Lesser God with the Belt of Giant's Strength)
  • Symbol: His Ancestral Weapon, the Greenhilt family sword.
  • Alignment: Beleaguered Good
  • Portfolio: Back from the Dead, Bald, Black Leader Guy, Deadpan Snarker, Empowered Badass Normal, A Father to His Men, Genius Bruiser, Heroes Prefer Swords, I Am Not My Father, Interspecies Romance (with a sylph), Jack-of-All-Stats, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Morality Chain (to Belkar), Secular Hero, Straight Man, Super Strength, Vetinari Job Security.
  • Domains: Strength, Constitution, Intelligence, Wisdom, Charisma.
  • High Priest: Captain Adelbert Steiner
  • Allies: The rest of The Order of the Stick, Cecil, Ikki Kurogane.
  • Enemies: Xykon, Tarquin, HEL
  • Conflicting Opinion: Jin Kazama.
  • Roy was initially conflicted about his ascension. On one hand, it's cool and all, but he really didn't feel he was the most deserving of godhood or even the position he was given. It was pointed out to Roy that he was going to ascend "relatively" soon, because of the rules of his universe, and also that most of the "better" candidates were already ascended. Besides, Roy's struggle was a significant part of the early narrative of his comic and outlined what made him different from the standard Lawful Good Fighter. Understanding this, Roy accepted his position afterwards.
  • Roy found out fairly soon that Miko Miyazaki was in the Pantheon, more specifically as a member of the Millstone Club. Roy laughed at this at first, but when it was found that the group was made specifically TO screw up plans, he decided to explain to them that Miko would probably mess up things a little too much. Miko was soon kicked out again. Thankfully, Miko isn't actually aware he was the one who petitioned this would happen.
  • Roy gets along fairly well with Cecil, most likely because of their similarities. After all, they're both Lawful Good Fighters who have struggled between being Lawful or Good as well as being really good leaders.
    • On the other hand, his relationship with Jin Kazama is a mixed bag. He gets that his father is abusive, and yes, he DID inherit a pact made with a demon that cursed him and his life, but ultimately Roy viewed his father as a bit greyer than Jin Kazama makes him out to be. Besides, Jin Kazama is an absolute asshole.
  • Has become friends with Ikki Kurogane, given their similar issues in trying to prove the validity of physical strength in universes where Linear Warriors, Quadratic Wizards is in full effect. However, Roy was also shocked to discover how horribly Ikki was abused by his father under the excuse of family honor. Since his own father was an insufferable jackass at worst, Roy was not happy when he found out the extent of Ikki’s suffering. At the very least, Ikki has his great-grandfather to look up to, much like Roy’s admiration of his grandfather. For his part, Ikki is grateful for finding someone who has so much in common with him and has offered to give Roy a hand in defeating Xykon.
  • Roy is now leading the Order of the Stick against a new and grander enemy: Hel. Her plans to usurp control of the world by exploiting the fear of the Snarl was heinous enough and warranted stopping, but then it became personal when she did by making Durkon Thundershield into her puppet. Roy detests the Not-Durkon and her for having manipulated him and his allies while also bastardizing his friend. Their plan is to stop Hel and her allies from manipulating the meeting of the Gods and ending the world to keep her from getting the souls of all dwarvenkind.
