Overdeities

    Gan 
Gan, God of Overarching Heroes (The Other)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dark_tower_michael_whelan.png
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: The Dark Tower itself.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: God of the Stephen King multiverse, Greater-Scope Paragon, Subtly Intervening to Keep Order, Eldritch Abomination from the Primordial Chaos (A Benevolent Example), Manifests as the Dark Tower, Cosmic Entity
  • Domains: Creation, Guardianship, Divinity, Order (the White), The Multiverse
  • Allies: Roland Deschain, Cosmos, The Living Tribunal, God (God, the Devil and Bob), The Alpha and The Omega, Chuck Shurley, Amara, Eru Ilúvatar, The Love That Moves The Stars, The One Above All, The Presence, The Life Entity, Philemon, Mata Nui, Link, Zelda, Aslan
  • Rivals: YHVH, Galeem, Eliphas
  • Enemies: The Crimson King, Randall Flagg and the Grand United Alliance of Destruction (particularly the Lich, Amatsu-Mikaboshi, Merged Zamasu, Lord English, Dharkon), The Anti-Monitor, Barbatos, Melkor, Krona, Don Thousand, Hajun, The Old Gods
  • Wary of: GOLB and Azathoth
  • In the overarching multiverse of Stephen King, Gan is the creative overforce watching over it. Having spun it from his navel, Gan is the God who the Dark Tower that maintains the multiverse is his manifestation. Ka is said to be the will of Gan, a subtle sort of Divine Intervention. It's said that he has a wife, Bessa. He was the "Other" that Pennywise spoke of between him and Maturin the Turtle.
  • Almost never directly involved with the Grand United Alliance of Good, but will influence things to help them out. He is somewhat like Eru Ilúvatar, being the god figure of their respective series who function as the Greater-Scope Paragon. The two have been seen conversing with each other on the nature of existence, creation, order, chaos, good and evil. Melkor was not pleased to learn another being like Eru had ascended to the pantheon. Link and Princess Zelda occasionally receive guidance from Gan in their constant struggles against Ganondorf, seeing him as a similar entity to the Golden Goddesses of Hyrule.
  • Usually found with other Top God and God figures who think it's best to help from afar than directly interfere. There is the God known by Bob, The One Above All and The Love That Moves The Stars. TOAA recognizes his style of being a Greater-Scope Paragon, with the Living Tribunal serving a similar function to the Dark Tower. He also feels a certain kinship with the Entity, as they are both the source of life as it's known in the worlds they come from.
  • Can be found discussing with Mata Nui about what it means to be a benevolent god, as the people of the Matoran universe worship him for his goodness. However, Mata Nui was not a god in the mythical sense and ultimately failed to prevent Makuta Teridax's rise to power. He's also friends with Aslan, a fantastic representation of Jesus, and like to discuss over what it means to be a benevolent god.
  • Emerged from the outer dark of the Prim, which makes him as much of an Eldritch Abomination as the Crimson Queen or other monsters from that. He can be considered an intelligent and benevolent Azathoth. He was not happy to learn of many malevolent deities of the Primordial Chaos such as the Chaos King, who considers Gan unnecessary intrusion and "a hapless romantic".
  • Doesn't want Krona to get anywhere near him since he is willing to tear the multiverse apart in his search for the answers to how everything came to be. And Gan spawned the Stephen King multiverse, after all. However, Amara was much more pleasant, having grown out of her "not liking ordered creation" phase and along with her brother Chuck Shurley the three feel like they can sit down and have a casual conversation.
  • Is the most powerful force on the side of "the White", which represents order to the Crimson King's chaos or "the Red". A number of others who represent order consider themselves better fit to be the ultimate representation of order. Eliphas is the entity who's order is at least something Gan could understand but has stated to YHVH and Galeem that he doesn't care for "law" being suppression of free thought and obedience. Order is simply a structured, sensible existence as opposed to void and Primordial Chaos.
  • Perceives Dharkon as a major force of the Red that Gan opposes, and the Crimson King champions. The Old Gods' chaotic desires are also part of what Gan considers to be the Red, along with God of Chaos GOLB. He is less apprehensive on GOLB due to not acting with much thought and Betty's merger altering him. However, their chaos might actually be less dangerous than Hajun's desire to be utterly alone, the only thing in existence after he destroys everything. He regards Hajun as something worse, the Black or simply "the Void".
    • Like YHVH, Gan doesn't consider Lucifer's chaos to be the chaos of the Crimson King. It's more social chaos than the cosmic chaos that works against Gan's cosmic order.
  • The GUAD considers Gan to be a major block in their plans of bringing the destruction of everything. They are trying to do what the Crimson King failed to do and tear down the Dark Tower, bringing an end to his ordered multiverse. Among those who are most invested with this are Lord English (an utterly determined soul who makes sport of slaughtering Lovecraftian gods), Zamasu (who decries Gan's Greater-Scope Paragon status as him being lazy) and the Lich (who, given similarities to the Crimson King and his relation to GOLB, takes bringing down the Dark Tower as a sort of holy mission).
  • Asides from the GUAD, the Anti-Monitor and Barbatos both want to tear down the Dark Tower. Barbatos wishes to spread his Dark Multiverse everywhere, and the Anti-Monitor finds it a possibly easier way to ensure his Anti-Matter Universe is the only one to exist. Don Thousand's desire for chaos to be supreme also leads him to want to subsume the tower.

Greater Gods

    Hakumen 
Hakumen, God of Hero Antagonists (The White Void, The Cold Steel, The Just Sword, Jin Kisaragi, The White Susano'o, Masked Freak, The Susano'o Unit, The Thot Slayer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hakumen_cf.png
  • Greater God, Theoretically borderline Overdeity once he's at full power
  • Symbol: His Nox Nyctores, Ookami, surrounded by eight Magatama on his emblem.
  • Theme Song: SUSANOOH, SIX-HEROES (shares this theme with the rest of the Six Heroes)
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Hero Antagonists, British Samurai, Knights Templar, Badasses Sealed Away, Weakened Badasses That Can Still Curbstomp You, Resisting the corrupting influence of the Boundary, Badass Catchphrases, Greatly Improved Future Selves, Time Paradoxes
  • Domains: Law, Good, War, Time
  • Followers: Yomotsu Hirosaka, Agent Luke Hobbs
  • Allies: Tsubaki Yayoi, Nine the Phantom, Valkenhayn R. Hellsing, Sol Badguy, Ky Kiske, Sanger Zonvolt, Archer, Kenshiro, Captain Hammer, , Captain America, Raiden (both the Metal Gear one and the Mortal Kombat one), Nana
  • Rivals: Ragna the Bloodedge, Archer, Genji Shimada, Raven Branwen
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Rachel Alucard, Jin Kisaragi, Lambda-11
  • Opposes: Kokonoe
  • Opposed by: Miko Miyazaki, who insists he is not worthy.
  • Enemies: Yuuki Terumi, Relius Clover, Vergil Sparda, Nu-13, Johan Liebert, Majin Buu, Nui Harime, Quan Chi, Monokuma and Junko Enoshima
  • Good Counterpart to: Noob Saibot
  • He is the White Void. He is the Cold Steel. He is the Just Sword. With blade in hand shall he reap the sins of this world and cleanse it in the fires of destruction! He is Hakumen! The end has come!
  • Serves to atone for his sins committed as Jin Kisaragi.
  • He was the only one not present at the induction of Terumi, God of Trolling, into the Pantheon. Ironically, nor was Jin. His associates, however, report having seen him close the door to his sanctum and roar furiously while swinging Ookami around like a madman.
  • Held Sol in great respect since Hakumen considers him a shining example of redemption. He also gets along well with Sanger, occasionally sparing in swordsmanship and competing in "Who can make the more Epic Creed" contests.
  • Gained another Worthy Opponent in the form of Vergil, though their interaction is a bit complex. Vergil views Hakumen as a Worthy Opponent because he is Jin's future self. Hakumen, however, detests him for three reasons. One, because of his lust for power, which Hakumen views as evil. Two, because he utterly loathes his past self, and he views Vergil's "compliment" as an insult. Three, Vergil reminds him of his past self.
  • Although commonly misconstrued as a Jerkass (like his past self), those who have seen his "Old Man's Tale" scene towards Tsubaki Yayoi know better. Some gods have even cried when they viewed that particular moment in his history.
  • In addition to shivering spines upon hearing the resonance of Nu-13's voice on her ascension, a rumble was also felt within the Pantheon. Hakumen was the cause, due to a combination of his Power of Order and his quiet, but intense rage at realizing she had arrived reaching critical levels. It should also be noted that Hakumen has a long and personal history with Nu.
  • It is for said reason that he is extremely wary of Lambda-11, as she holds a piece of Nu's soul within her. It is only because he understands that there's a difference he didn't attempt to strike her down the moment he saw her.
  • Regained his status as Greater God as a result of him killing Yuuki Terumi for good. In addition to that, since he was able to bypass his legendary Mind Raping techniques and kill him easily, Hakumen is able to at least withstand Mind Rape. This has made Terumi's ally Johan place him on his higher-up shit list, as Hakumen is able to at least withstand and resist against his Mind Raping and corruption skills, which were thought to have been irreversible without Doktor Tenma intervening or having what's an overdose's worth of Heroic Resolve, and since Hakumen killed Terumi and the former was just at a quarter of his full power...
    • It is also said that while he could've done it without help, Hakumen this time slays Terumi because the latter was distracted by Excalibur's loony rants. For as much as a stoic man himself, Hakumen can't help but be entertained with Terumi losing his shit on Excalibur's complete lunacy, and that's before he told Terumi to face him and got him killed.
    • However, certain events have revealed Terumi never died and instead still lives, albeit not without consequences. Hakumen's rage at this revelation was truly something to behold, and he has sworn to finish the job.
  • He discovered that Majin Buu will come back and wreak havoc on the Pantheon once again, even after being defeated by the Z-Fighters, and has placed him highest on his shit list outside of Terumi: The very fact that he will come back even after being killed. As a result, Hakumen has been developing a plan to eliminate Buu entirely. So far, it involves summoning Excalibur and a large bag of candy he brought from Willy Wonka (to respectively exploit Buu's excessively childish personality and his wanting for candy) so he can charge up his Time Killer technique and use it on Buu to erase him entirely from existence.
  • Does not like Nui Harime, as her actions remind him of Yuuki Terumi. Surprisingly, she isn't his disciple.
  • Some portions of the Pantheon have noted that his vocal filter has been altered somewhat. No one knows how or why this has happened, but the general speculation is that it has something to do with his promotion to Greater God, where he had gained a significant portion of his power back from the Boundary.
  • Strangely, sometime after the conclusion of the battle between Ragna the Bloodedge and Sol Badguy, Hakumen heard rumors that someone was attempting to create clones in his image. An injured Dante revealed to him the rumors were true, but the clones had been already been disposed of by some super-powered white-coated clone of Ragna, who had disappeared after defeating him in less than a minute. He has since been on high alert for more such rumors about the clone.
  • Hakumen had a tussle with fellow cyborg-warrior Genji Shimada, where he was rather annoyed with how Genji called out his high ego and rigid code, considering the latter also led a hedonistic life, though no longer doing so. One thing Hakumen has an advantage about him is that he has no "projectiles" to deflect. However, Hakumen was not that pleased on how Genji's organization eventually fell and led the world into chaos... if it was him in charge... well, with his blade in hands shall he reap the sins of that world and cleanse it with the fires of destruction, with extreme prejudice.
  • Unfortunately, despite his efforts to stop Terumi, Hakumen (as in Jin's soul) was killed in an unsavory manner by Terumi, with the Susano'o unit falling into his hands as he took it over. However, in the last moments, that soul was restored with the efforts of the actual Susano'o, who told him that he'd rather have this soul be the representative Susano'o Unit than Terumi. After being tossed back to the Boundary, Hakumen resumed his position.
  • Hakumen was rather glad to see one of his old friends from the Dark War ascend into pantheon. While the two have had their differences, he's both happy and very supportive of how Nine wishes to make amends for what happened.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zelda_25th_anniversary.png
Link over the ages.
Hero of the Wild 
  • Intermediate God (the Hero of Time is a Greater God, potentially Overdeity, with the Fierce Deity Mask equipped)
  • Symbol: The Triforce of Courage
  • Theme Song: The Legend of Zelda Main Theme
  • Alignment: Varying with each incarnation, but always Good.
  • Portfolio: Ancestral Weapons, Arrows on Fire, Chain of Deals, Cosmic Keystones, Fetch Quests, Wordlessness, Being Equipped to handle anything, Hyperspace Arsenals, Hammerspace, Heroism, Destined To Be A Hero, Heroic Spirit, Humility
  • Domains: Courage, Strength, Time, War, Reincarnation
  • Followers: Dirk the Daring, The Kid
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Caim, Firion, Cloud
  • Enemies: Ganondorf, Zant, Ghirahim, Majora, Bowser, Cia, Claude, Hermaeus Mora, Sauron
  • Weapon of Choice? Pfft! Whatever Link pulls out of his bag is his Weapon of Choice. Yes...even a big chunk of meat and a bottle. When forced to choose only one, however, it is usually his Sword of Plot Advancement, which is often (though not always) the Master Sword.
  • Destined to reincarnate in an endless cycle for as long as there is evil. Over the past two thousand years or so has started wearing a green tunic and pointy hat in each life for reasons he isn't sure about - every time he is born, he forgets very nearly everything, to the point of being surprised every time he learns that he is a god. This is just as well, considering the tantrum he threw the last time he didn't. Growing up and collecting all that weaponry is time consuming!
  • Used to hold the title of Silent Protagonists, until it was stolen by Claude. He is understandably upset.
  • Didn't know what to say in regards to how the Nostalgia Critic dressed up as him during the quest to find Malachite's Hand.
  • To combat the GUAE's growing power, Link has been training with other gods. Notably Ieyasu, Yukimura, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei and Liu Bei. The results have been impressive.
  • Subject to an equally endless line of prophecies, most of which only apply to one lifespan each.
  • The other Prophecy Gods let him in to this house to do their errands. When it comes to MacGuffin Delivery Services, particularly matched sets, you can't hire much better than Link. And he can get a bottle of milk from the cow to the god paying in two minutes flat, or it's free.
  • Needless to say, with all of this reincarnation going on, he is pretty much Virtuous' bitch.
  • Finds kinship with Lucina, due to having once also worn masks to impersonate others.
  • Link has had conversations with other gods. While the gods remember the subjects they talked about, no one can ever seem to remember exactly what the hero said or what sort of voice or accent he might have had.
  • Never, never, NEVER put Link into a wrestling match, unless it is a sumo wrestling match. He can Body Slam EVERYTHING to death!
  • Because of his unrelenting heroism, courage and benevolence; Link has proven to be one of the nicest gods in the Pantheon, capable of forming long-lasting friendships with fellow heroes and defenders of justice:
    • Link is a good friend of Nintendo deities Mario, Samus Aran and Fox McCloud. They are always on the look out for any dangers that might threaten the Nintendo realms.
    • Has become friends with a kind-hearted Artificial Intelligence from AlfheimOnline called Yui, as well as her parents Kirito and Asuna. Yui is very fond of Link because his relationship to Navi reminds her of her own with her father; a Charming Elvish Sword-Loving Bad-Boy and his adorable fairy companion. Link is also warmly reminded of his relationship with Zelda when he sees how close and loving Kirito and Asuna are.
    • One day, he started beating the stuffing out of Donald Duck and Goofy without warning. Sora stepped in to knock some sense into Link. He succeeded. Turns out, Link was possessed by Dark Link, who gained more power by combining with the Heartless. Link, Sora, Donald, and Goofy beat back Dark Link and his minions after a long fight, and now the four are staunch allies after everything they've gone through.
    • One of Link's allies is Optimus Prime. They became friends after dicussing their recurrent roles as heroes across space and time. Also, Link can sympathize with Optimus because of his unyielding heroism despite... certain events.
    • Link is also fond of travelling with Ash Ketchum and his trusty Pikachu. Seeing how close Ash and Pikachu reminds the Hero of Hyrule of his companions.
    • Link also struck up a friendship with the Master Chief, as they are both green-clad heroes who saved their worlds from unspeakable dangers. John also sees Link’s loyalty and devotion to Princess Zelda similar to his own friendship to Cortana, and wonders how can Link, a legendary hero the same as him, can also function as a regular person. By his own admission, the one time John traveled to Hyrule, he was taken aback by the everyday kindnesses of the Hyrulean people.
    • Also finds common ground with James Ramirez, what with them being their universes' errant boys and not saying much. Ramirez considers Link something of a forefather, since he does all the hero work in his universe all by himself.
    • The Soul Series deities, who he fought once, like to invite him for battle. Sometimes just for kicks he enters the bouts with his Bug-Catching Net.
  • Peeks into Zelda's diary have revealed that the primary reason for Link's reputable silence is to cope with the stress of his many responsibilities.
  • It has been theorized that Doomguy is one of Link's incarnations. He and Zelda were both unnerved by the idea.
  • Link eventually found out that, in a separate universe, Hermaeus Mora was responsible for completely destroying Hyrule in his obsession to find the ancient knowledge that the kingdom held. Because of this, Link keeps a steady eye on the Daedric Prince just in case he feels Hermaeus Mora is about to pose a visible threat to Hyrule.
  • Really dislikes crossdressing, a feeling Ash Ketchum, Shido Itsuka and Lux Arcadia share. He did it once to enter the Gerudo's territory, but a lot of his followers took this particular instance and ran away with it, drawing Link wearing girly clothes. Don't misinterpret Link, he will crossdress for the greater good, but don't expect him to be happy about it.
  • Also present in Multi-Wielding Weapons.

Lesser Gods

    Bo 
Isabeau Dennis, Divine Heroic Seductress (Bo)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-bo_infobox_s4_2_6505.jpg
  • Theme Song: Lost Girl Theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (formerly Chaotic Neutral)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A leather stiletto boot
  • Portfolio: Horny Devil with With Evil Powers but a Good Nature, Can Charm Any Normal Person, Mommy Issues from Parental Abandonment and Fundamentalists, Knife Nut, ultimately an Atoner with Chronic Hero Syndrome
  • Domains: Good, Lust, Fae, Healing, Freedom
  • High Priestess: Phedre no Delaunay
  • Followers: Judith, most actual Kitsunes, Shiki Aizawa, Nancy Lee, Venus the nymph, Francesca, Linda Downey, Chiana, Sha'ira and her Consorts, Witty Ritts
  • Allies: Ann Takamaki, SCP- 166, Sol Badguy, Nancy Drew, Skulduggery Pleasant, Ahri, Chloe von Einzbern, Satsuki Kiryuin
  • Rivals: Morrigan and Lilith Aensland
  • Enemies: Handsome Jack, The Queen of Pain, Slaanesh.
  • Opposes: The House of FAITH, Hades
  • Pities: Killua Zoldyck
  • Admirers: James Bond, Mad Moxxi, Charlie Harper, Jogn Constantine, Jack Harkness, Barbarella
  • With Ann Takamaki moving in with the rest of the Phantom Thieves in a new temple, she needed a new guardian for her old one. As a fun contest, she motioned her followers to seduce someone from the GUAE to coax any useful information. In the end, there was one success from a woman named Bo. She managed to use her Charm Person spell of Handsome Jack to discover an imminent attack on the Crimson Riders. Once that was resolved, Ann officially handed the temple over to the woman.
  • Bo identifies herself as a succubus as her main ability is to charm and drain the energy out of humans. Her birth parents paint a different story. She is the daughter of a Light Fae and none other than Hades himself (albeit a different one from the ascended ones). With that, she has the potential to become much more powerful than her level.
    • Regardless of the name, Morrigan and Lilith have been out saying that she is always welcome in their temple. Regardless, Bo is wary of staying with the two for too long. She knows that the two are a corrupting influence and may compel her to activate her more sinister powers, abilities she wants to keep limited.
  • Immediately got into trouble into the Goddess of Evil Bondage when she spotted the Queen of Pain trying to seduce another victim. Not used to beings with teleportation and stunning screams, it was a fight that didn't end well with her the first time. Nevertheless, she strove to continue monitor the outsider. Akasha looks forward to the challenge as well as the opportunity to break the fey.
  • Imagine her shock when she was face-to-face with the one and only Hades, the god she considers as her father. This one in particular is quite different from the King of the Underworld and it is disputed whether the one in her world is the same as the one in the Pantheon. Regardless, Hades thought it would be a good time to invite her to his lair. The offer was soundly rejected as she wants no part with him, whether he is truly her father or not.
  • At first, Bo was unable to control her ability to absorb the lifeforce of those caught in an act of passion with her. However, with some training, she was eventually able to perform intercourse without triggering the deadly effects. Because of this, the SCP Coporation hired her to handle SCP- 166. The being has yet to know how to stop men from trying to force themselves on her. Her experience of controlling urges and the fact that she is not male made her an ideal subject to the subject. Bo was unsure if 166 was a member of her species, but is willing to help the girl out.
  • Finds Chloe to be an odd case considering that the girl does much of the same work that she does despite looking much younger. Nevertheless, Bo insists on sending Fille Fatales over the girl's way. She believes Chloe means well most of the time.
  • This initial lack of control served a purpose; it allowed her to go on a killing spree of those who wronged her, albeit without knowing the true nature of her powers. After learning more about her abilities, she regretted her previous actions and strove to use her powers for good. While her independence prevents her from playing an active role in the GUAG, she does go to Sol Badguy's temple on occasion. She wanted to learn more about the God of Atonement and his followers and their paths towards redemption.
  • Bo learned early on that she wasn't the only one knows how to charm person. It wasn't long before she was hugged by the Vastaya Ahri. The champion had long awaited someone who has had the same experience as her. Both hoped to atone for past murders. The God of Charming did want to see if their magic had an effect on each other. That turned out to be true. Regardless, the two agreed to stay friends and help each other.
  • To the disappointment of many in the Pantheon, Bo revealed she already has a significant other: a police officer named Lauren. She has already went through the love triangle route with a man called Dyson and hopes to stay committed to her. Yes, Lauren agreed to let Bo do her business provided that it is for a good cause. With that said, Bo has stated that Lauren isn't enough to will her biological needs and requires sustenance from others to meet them with Lauren's consent. As such, a number of men and women have volunteered to help Bo meet her needs.
  • That has not stopped Slaanesh from obsessing over the succubus. The being has been trying to tempt Bo over to the Chaos God's side with the promise of permanent sustenance. For now Bo knows better than to risk her life that way and has refused the Chaos God's advances.
  • Moonlights as an Amateur Sleuth from time to time in order to get close enough to people so that she could help them. Like quite a few of them, she isn't that good in the business. Luckily for her, there is a patron for such folk in the Pantheon. Nancy Drew is happy to apply her services whenever Bo gets stumped in a case. She also gives the fae advice on how to solve them to make her a better detective.
    • Of course, there are certain cases that require someone of the mythical sense to help solve crime, an aspect outside of Nancy's wheelhouse. For those cases she turns to Skulduggery Pleasant, God of Occult Detectives. She finds him odd as a good-aligned lich, but appreciates the help he gives her.
  • Readily applies to the Combat Stilettos department of Costume wear. She knows that people love women who wears them and thus are a constant part of her wardrobe. She finds it interesting that the holder of the title is rather aloof instead of upstart. Yet she respects a woman who can fight extremely well despite the footwear.
  • Raised by Bible-loving parents, they tried their best to make her adhere to abstinence. That didn't take, and it wasn't long until she ran away from her family. While she doesn't resent religion, she is wary about working with anyone associated with the House of Faith no matter what their opinion on her lifestyle.
  • It was revealed that her father sired her mother in order for Bo to be used as his champion once she learned to despise both humans and fae. Thankfully, it didn't some to pass and she strives to help people. It is this reason that she feels sorry for Killua's situation. She hopes that the boy can keep up with his redemption.

    The Heroes of the World of Balance 
The Heroes of the World of Balance, Celestial Team of Diverse Backgrounds members  (The Returners | Terra: Tina Branford, The Esperkin, The Girl Who Pilots the Magitek Armor, the Girl | Locke: Lock Cole | Edgar: Gerad, Geoff | Sabin: Macías "Mash" Rene Figaro, Mr. Thou (by Gau) | Celes: Ceres? | Shadow: Clyde Arrowny | Cyan: Cayenne, Kaien | Setzer: The Wandering Gambler | Strago: Stragus, Stragos | Relm: Realm)

Fan art by かまなつ
  • Exclusive to Cyan:
    • Cyan used to be a general in Doma fighting against the Empire. And then Kefka poisoned the river, killing everyone else inside the keep, including his wife and his child, leaving only himself and a single Doman scout. And so he vowed vengeance against the Empire, yet he had enough clarity to accept Sabin's (and Shadow's) aid when they offered it when they were also fighting Imperials. After a ride in (and a fight with) the Phantom Train, a trip to the Veldt, and a ferry to South Figaro, he and Sabinnote  and Gau eventually reunite with everyone else and he officially joins the Returners.
    • For the record, his name is pronounced kai-en, not sai-an like you would pronounce the color.
    • For some reason, when Cyan is preparing his Bushido techniques, everyone else has to stand by before he's ready. Additionally, only Umaro seems unsusceptible to this pause. However, if Quick is cast on him, he's free to use any Bushido attack twice without harming the pace of the battle.
    • One day in the House of Combat, he was set up to a duel against the God of Named Weapons, Owain. In the aftermath of that, as the one younger swordsman talked about his mother (but not by name), Cyan for a moment wondered if this was his son (somehow) all grown up given that he had died amongside his own beau (even though he saw both of them die and board the Phantom Train). And when Owain's mother showed up to fetch him, Cyan was utterly flummoxed and unable to comprehend just how a young lady like Lissa be a mother already. And even after an explanation, it was still hard to comprehend the whole Time Travel deal. Still, Cyan and Owain continue to see each other and duel at times, sometimes even mixing magic in.
  • Exclusive to Gau:
    • Gau was born in a house north of the Veldt. During childbirth, Gau's mother died, and his father went mad as a result. He believed Gau was a demon, threw him out on the Veldt, a place where monsters from all over the world migrate, and he convinced himself that the kid and his wife were all a dream. Gau survived on the Veldt on his own since then before joining Sabin and Cyan (Shadow having left them by then).
      • Sometime during the World of Ruin, he eventually met his father again (though he doesn't remember), and Sabin decided they would make him presentable. It was certainly a hilarious sequence, but in the end it was for naught, and the party discovers Gau's origins, with Sabin ready to beat up the old man, but Gau came to his defense, and is just glad that his father is still alive.
    • As a Wild Child, his speech is pretty broken. That said, it's still impressive that he's able to speak with any kind of coherence, given that he was abandoned as a newborn.
    • In battle, Gau fights using techniques he's learned from monsters at the Veldt, and given his adventures with the other heroes, he's learned a lot. Now in the Pantheon, he can be sometimes found at the Beastiary trying to learn other things, and given every Rage he's learned, it's possible he can become much stronger with enough time and as more and more unique monsters appear.
      • When Gau emulates an enemy he gains its elemental immunities, weaknesses, and absorptions, as well as their status immunities, and innate statuses, such as Protect or Float. No one has figured out how that works.
    • Due to his life in the wilds, Gau doesn't like civilized clothing in general, as he finds it cumbersome and uncomfortable. Still, he won't say no to a scarf, and can occasionally be seen wearing a Snow Scarf that absorbs ice attacks and resists fire attacks.
    • As fellow humans who've lived in the wilds, Gau became fast friends with Tarzan, Mowgli (even if he has returned to civilization, though they're relatively primitive), and George of the Jungle.
  • Exclusive to Setzer:
    • Setzer is a gambler by nature and pilot by trade. In his youth, he was involved with a girl named Darill who owned the airship Falcon. She was aware of her risk-taking nature as she casually mentioned to Setzer that the Falcon was his sheould she she ever be unable to fly. Mortified by the idea, Setzer said no such thing would ever happen, and that he would only take the Falcon after having won it fairly. After a day of flying, Darill went out on her own and pushed the Falcon to its limits. The ship crashed in a distant valley, and when Setzer found the remains he entombed them beneath the sea.
      • Shell-shocked by the loss, Setzer impressed his desires upon Maria, a wealthy opera star, and eventually threatened to kidnap her in the middle of the opera she was about to star in, "Maria and Draco". But as luck would have it, Locke Cole and his party were desperate for an airship, and so together with the Impresario foiled Setzer's plan by having Celes take Maria's place. When Setzer abducts Celes, Locke followed him back to the Blackjack, and the party sought to negotiate for the airship.
      • While disappointed upon getting the wrong girl, he found Celes more attractive. But she took advantage of his gambling desires with a coin toss; Heads, Setzer would help the Returners reach the Southern Continent to rescue Maduin and the other espers; if it was tails, Celes would agree to be Setzer's "woman". He takes the bet, loses, finds he was duped with a double-headed coin, yet was actually impressed with the trick, and he threw in his lot with the group.
    • Thanks to getting an early tenure in the Pantheon by way of being one of their Heralds, Setzer still corresponds with the Cids from time to time.
    • No, he will not bribe his opponents for victory. That DiZ guy clearly got his character wrong.
  • Exclusive to Strago:
    • Strago grew up in Thamasa, a village where Magi live in secret. He looked after Relm after her father Clyde left to keep his thieving past from catching up to his new family. It's not known if Strago knows about Shadow's past, though. He encountered the party when they visited in seach of rogue Espers, and after a night's stay, and saving Relm from a burning house, that's when he joined them.
    • While Strago does raise Relm as his granddaughter (and Thamasa believes it to be the case), it's not known if they're actually blood-related, which would also make him Shadow/Clyde's father-in-lawnote .
    • Strago is a Blue Mage, a class able to learn techniques used by other monsters. Unlike traditonal Blue Mages, he merely needs to see the skill in action (even if it's an already-copied skill from Gau's Rage), which admittedly means if his vision or mind is compromised, he won't be able to learn the technique.
    • One of Strago's Lores that he can learn is Rippler, which exchanges "statuses" between the caster and the target. It can be pretty dangerous as it can lead to him taking away Terra's Morph form, or preventing Shadow's Interceptor from partaking in any more battles.
  • Exclusive to Relm:
    • Relm is the (probable) granddaughter of Strago, daughter of Clyde Arrowny a.k.a. Shadow, and a Magi with a talent in art. She first met Terra and company when they visited Thamasa in seach of rogue Espers. Sometime while they were staying for the night, Relm was caught in a fire while spending time at a friend's house (to play with a Fire Rod). Strago, Terra, and Lock went into to save her, and were almost cornered by the flames until Shadow and Interceptor rescued them. They elected to leave her behind, but she followed them, and soon proved her worth by Sketching Ultros when he ran into them for the third time, and the drawing will scare him off.
    • Her Sketch works by painting a portrait of one of her opponents and use one of its attacks on itself. Its success rate depends on Relm's (or Gogo's if they're miming her) Level and the opponent's. If she's at equal or higher Level, then it'll always work. That said, her power doesn't work on allies, invisible foes, or if it's too "difficult" for her to Sketch, and if the ability she's Sketching is affected by Silence, then it won't work. Still, even without Sketch, Relm is still a proficient mage.
      • However, with a unique relic called the Fake Mustache, instead of Sketching an enemy monster, Relm can Control them, making it easy for Strago to learn Lores, among other things.
    • For the record, her name is supposed to be pronounced like "real" with an "m" at the end, not like "realm".
    • Of course, she's perfectly capable of doing regular paintings, and can occasionally be seen in the House of Craft practicing her art.
      • And that's where she met Eko, another person who can bring art to life. They hit it off well at first, and then things got crazy when Eko wanted a battle. As it was, in response to seeing Kazu , Relm had Sketched Kazu and that offended Eko, but when the Sketched Kazu proved to have a far shorter duration of existence than her own, Eko also felt proud that Relm's copy could not compare. And then the Pictomancer proceeded to fling magic spells. Despite that, they still get along well.
    • As someone who uses art as a force of good, Kirby instantly befriended her as she reminds him of Adeleine.
    • Before participating in a battle, Relm tends to wave at a random direction before doing so. If there are cameras in the area when this happens, she always somehow ends facing one of them to do this.
    • Despite all the kinds of people that exist in the Pantheon, she was actually hard-pressed to find other painters like herself. Eventually, while checking out rooftops, she did find someone and approached the former holder for Starving Artist, Yusuke Kitagawa. They got to know each other well over doing paintings, an almost skipped lunchtime, exchanged histories (Relm was terrified at Yusuke's "tenure" with Madarame), and warding off a few pesky zealous angels (wherein she discovered his Persona powers and he her Sketch and magic). The Phantom Thief would shortly recommend other artists he knows such as Taki Tachibana, Masao "Mark" Inaba, and Maki Sonomura.
  • Exclusive to Mog:
    • Mog first entered the scene when he met Locke tending to an unconscious Terra while Narshe guards were on the search for her, and decided to help protect the formerly brainwashed Imperial with the aid of his other moogle companions, after which they parted ways. As for why, it's because he had received dream from the Esper Ramuh to aid the Returners, of which Locke was a part of. It's also through these dreams that Mog was able to speak the human language. He would meet them again while they were chasing Lone Wolf the Pickpocket to claim some treasure he stole, who shortly holds Mog hostage. Some things happened, and when the two end up clinging onto separate ledge for dear life, and have to choose between rescuing Mog, or claiming Lone Wolf's treasure.
      • Whether or not Mog is rescued then and there, he would appear again later at the World of Ruin, as te last moogle alive. If the party finds him, he will join them, and bring along Umaro as well.
    • Like every moogle, Mog doesn't like being touched or pulled by the pom-pom top.
  • Exclusive to Umaro:
    • Umaro is first found somewhere in the Narshe mines, and challenged the party when they stormed his cave and took his precious stone (the magicite Midgardsormr). Upon their victory, he allows them to pass through, but if Mog is present, the Yeti will be convinced to join the party.
      • As for why a yeti is following a moogle's orders in the first place, it's because Umaro has a strong sense of honor and feels like he owes a debt to Mog, because Mog shared some food with him when he had collapsed from exhaustion.
    • While unable to don much in terms of armor, weapons, or accesories, he has a Snow Muffler, which absorbs ice and resists fire.
    • With the Rage Ring, he can toss allies or himself (with no damage to either) at foes (For Massive Damage), and if the ally is asleep or confused, they immediately recover from it, and he seems to prioritize on those when he's tossing. He also absorbs fire and blocks lightning with it on.
    • In places where one is prohibited to performing regular attacks, Umaro is ideal since he doesn't tend to listen to those limitations anyway.
  • Exclusive to Gogo:
    • Found inside a Zone Eater at Triangle Island, upon encountering the party, they decided to join up. And that's all there is to them.
    • As a Mime, Gogo is capable of imitating any ability the other party members have, including Gau's Rages, Strago's Lores, Cyan's Sword Techs, and so on, but can't equip Espers.
    • Bartz recognized Gogo when he ran into them, as he and his group found them at a sunken ship and the party had to stay still with Gogo for a long while before the Mime bestowed them the Mime Class. Gogo for their part, is not answering if that was indeed them.

  • Alignment: Lawful Good

  • Allies: Dizzy (his wife), Leo Whitefang, Nana, Saki Tsuzura, Fate Testarossa, Clark Kent, Siegfried Schtauffen, Tsubaki Yayoi, Shobu Kirifuda, Gallantmon,
  • Rival: Sol Badguy, Jin Kisaragi
  • Enemies: Justice, The Millennium, I-No, Yuuki Terumi
  • Much battles where he kept on a standstill with Sol has proven enough to get him elevated. Now Ky devotes to preserve righteousness in the Pantheon, working well with the house of Justice.
  • Is married to an entity known as Maiden of the Grove. Also known as Dizzy. Family reunions are a tense affair.
  • Is also a father, through Sin is known to hang out with Sol more than him.
  • Unfortunately due to his naivety, Ky is often the butt-end of Terumi's trolling, since he's so easy to manipulate due to his devotion to justice. This doesn't sit well on Ky, knowing full well on how evil Terumi is, and even he has a hard time trying to keep his goody-goody face if the topic is about him.
  • He considers Siegfried a steadfast ally, although Siegfried is kinda put off with Ky's optimism, which Ky is trying to adjust with the much more realistic world.
  • Is a member of the GUAG Five Sacred Knights.
  • Like Sol, he has also been seen smiling in relief, uttering 'Finally...'
    • They still wonder how he suddenly came with the idea of a hairstyle change, now sporting a ponytail. Eventually Ky reveals that it just kept growing no matter how he cuts it.
    • This event also yielded one surprising event... Ky gains a red eye, hinting that he's had some elements of a Gear. For the moment, he kept this piece of information a secret.
    • This event was also one way for him to help the ascension of a longtime friend: Leo Whitefang.
  • Like Sol, prefers to not think of his family situation too much. Having a longtime rival as father-in-law tends to get pretty awkward, as well as having A LOT of alternate suitors for his wife due to her popularity.
  • Nozomi Yumehara seems to be quite shocked at first, but nowadays she along with Sanada Yukimura tends to be close friends with Ky. Even if the same voice tends to apply to the latter two, and when it at first got even more awkward when the latter two met Coco. All four of them tend to sigh at the other Sanada Yukimura, however....

  • Domains: Friendship, Loyalty, Studying, Companionship, Dragons
  • Followers: Bronies, Arthur, Wang, Al Borland, Elika
  • Allies: Luigi, Alfred, Applejack, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Yugi Moto, Rarity, Twilight Sparkle, Princesses Celestia and Luna, Starlight Glimmer, Discord, Sunset Shimmer,many deities in the Houses of Magic and Friendship, The Cutie Mark Crusaders, Spyro, Caro Ru Lushe and Silica, Squigly, Sash Lilac, Godzilla, Philip J. Fry, SCP-524
  • Enemies: Queen Chrysalis, Smaug, Lord Tirek, Acnologia
  • Friendly Rival with: PaRappa
  • Just Friends: Rarity
  • Originally ascended as assistant to the Mane Six, Spike worked his way up in order to impress Rarity and be on the same plane as various super-heroes similar to those in his favorite comics. What really sealed the deal was how he single-handedly derailed King Sombra's total victory over the Crystal Empire due to his true loyalty to Twilight. This was commemorated with his own stained glass window and a giant crystal statue of himself.
    • He's also expressed great relief that Sombra has since been removed from the Pantheon altogether. Not that he likes the loser king's replacement.
  • Is occasionally seen holding discussions with Alfred and Luigi, asking for advice and to compare mustaches, respectively.
  • Is not to be confused with the Spikes of instant death, or Parappa's other rival, Spike.
    • PaRappa, having heard that a Spike had taken up a throne, was quick to take to battle with him. Although the specifics of this match and the winner is unknown, Spike and Parappa became good friends, especially when PaRappa learned of Spike's exploits.
  • Does not enjoy the attention John Cena receives from Rarity after having learn what happened when John Cena employed his "This is whining" skills and Rarity offering to make shirts for him, but knows better than to call him out on this.
    • To Spike's credit, John Cena congratulated the dragon on his never-give-up attitude and loyalty to his friends against the threat of King Sombra.
  • Is banned from the House of Commerce, mostly because he will become consumed by greed and transform into a hulking behemoth that can only be taken down by a few giant gods (King Kong and Godzilla being the prime ones) without harm. To his credit, though, not all riches in the house are gold and jewels (e.g. paper cash and various other weird currencies)
  • Occasionally visits the House of Love for advice on Rarity. Hilarity often results.
  • With his appetite getting the better of him, Spike had attempted to sneak into the newly claimed throne of Smaug to see what rare (and delicious) jewels the dragon kept for himself. It didn't take long for Spike to run for his life, lest he be roasted or eaten by the red drake.
  • Spike was pleased to learn that the Pantheon has a good amount of good-aligned dragons, especially since every other known dragon he's seen in his world so far were anything but good (barring one Dragon Town next to Fillydelphia, though its existence clashes with show canon), Spike has enjoyed Spyro's company in particular since Spyro's been doing what he can to assure Spike that dragons aren't inherently evil. Spyro and Spike also like to share stories about their respective adventures, though Spyro finds it weird that Spike, unlike him, eats what gems he collects.
  • Is occasionally gushed over by Squigly, who considers him "a cute lil' dragon". While he was embarrassed at first, he grew to enjoy the chin scratchings.
  • Spike has been targeted by Acnologia, of all creatures, for two reasons: One, Acnologia has heard about Spike's hulking behemoth form and desires to fight it to see if he's worth killing, and two, the Black Dragon believes that Spike is a fool for having feelings for ponies, of all creatures. However, Spike has plenty of friends who will back him up, or at least help him get away, so, while he is scared of Acnologia, he refuses to let that fear rule him.
  • One time, Godzilla decided to attack Ponyville while his usual target, Tokyo, was being rebuilt, causing Twilight to resort to bringing out Spike's greedy form in a desperate attempt to stop the rogue monster. To the amazement of everyone, Spike actually managed to not only fight Godzilla to a draw, but also became one of the very few to reason with and befriend the Kaiju.
  • It is rumored that Celestia personally raised Spike, until he was old enough to be left with Twilight. Though there has been no official word on this from anypony and some still speculate, that Spike was raised by either Twilight or her parents.
  • Spike often has doubts, about his own abilities and merit among such powerful friends as his. This has gotten worse, with his role increasingly being relegated to the Butt-Monkey and the news of lackluster reactions to his episodes and the doubts of some who question whether or not he can carry a story on his own. But luckily, the little dragon has plenty of friends to tell him otherwise. Even some new ones who have begun to sympathize with Spike's plight. Including one Philip J. Fry. Who knows what it's like feeling unimportant, to want to be with girl that does not see you in the same way, and constantly being held back with his role as the but monkey, but assured the young dragon, that even if you feel like the least important person in the universe, you can tern out to be the most important.
  • Spike became the target of further interest and respect when he entered a dangerous competition of royalty in order to protect ponies from a potential tyrant from becoming Dragon Lord. Spike succeeded in this though he gave the staff and title to Ember, a dragon who assisted him and wanted to rule after her father while Spike merely entered to protect his friends. The fact he still won and had the title for however briefly and especially that he was able to surrender it has garnered him plenty of respect.
    • And he's become the target for Queen Chrysalis's wrath since, without Spike willing to befriend Thorax, her reign of terror would've continued.

  • Domains: Gems, Humanity, Love, Shields, Healing, Astral Projection
  • Followers: Watermelon Stevens
  • Heralds: Lion (his... well, lion), the residents of Beach City, Lapis Lazuli
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: He’s a guy who finds it really hard to hate anybody, but there are (to the shock of the Gems) exceptions, namely The Lich, Melkor, Nyarlathotep, Eric Cartman, Monokuma and Junko Enoshima. Even then, while the former three really do earn his hate, he only finds discomfort around Cartman and Monokuma.
  • Ambiguous relations with: Marge Simpson
  • Ascended after the gods saw his powerful love and friendliness, which could soften even the hardest of hearts.
    • Unfortunately, the other Crystal Gems saw it as a hostile kidnapping attempt and managed to find their way to the Pantheon. They ended up fighting many gods before Steven stopped them and told them what happened. Pearl was highly against the idea, Amethyst simply thought it was awesome, but Garnet was just glad to see him okay, and congratulated him on getting here. The other gods are wondering if they should ascend them as well, mostly since they're his adoptive mothers.
    • Eventually, the three managed to obtain positions in the Pantheon.
    • However, it's been realized that his trope is reserved for rulers and leaders. And while Steven is being groomed to be the latter eventually, it means he doesn't count for 100% Adoration Rating. And then someone realized that he's why the Crystal Gems are able to stay together for so long after their leader Rose Quartz passed away to conceive him despite their differences (especially Pearl and Amethyst), it was decided that he be moved and given a new title. He also made a new friend in Heart Aino, who was the herald of the trope he now holds.
  • Due to his unaggressive, friendly nature, many gods find it hard to hate or even get mad at him (with the exception of villains). Many find themselves hanging out with him without even realizing it.
  • Though he doesn't share the same title with Megumi and Yusuke any more, he still hangs out with the two.
    • With Megumi, he's already used to hanging out with Action Girls. He tells her many of the adventures he and the Crystal Gems have been on.
    • Meanwhile, Yusuke in turn tells him many of the stories of his adventures. Steven's always loved hearing about all the amazing different techniques of other gods.
  • His kindness helped Fluttershy warm up to him very quickly. Steven hangs out with her a lot, helping her take care of her animal friends.
  • Steve Rogers came to him about training his combat abilities with his shield when he manages to start summoning it successfully. The Gems have stated that they don’t see a problem with it since none of them are experts with a shield. And he's even learned how to throw it like Cap does, made more useful when he can make copies of it.
  • He gets along with Sora very well. Steven often says that the two hang out eating ice cream and fry bits (he’s been ‘introducing’ them to everybody and the House of Food just goes along with it, even setting aside a warm batch for Steven every day). He's been on the pursuit for Cookie Cat Ice Cream Sandwiches, but alas, his search as been a failure so far.
    • Naruto is a similar case. They usually talk about their mothers. Steven even plays with his kids when he comes to visit. He even started hanging out with his much less sociable friends like Kurama and Sasuke; both of them begrudgingly admitted that his presence was not…‘unenjoyable’.
  • Like with many Cartoon Network gods, he’s had a run-in with the Lich. Unfortunately for him, he had little experience in fighting at the time and would’ve been killed by him had it not been for the shields his gem produced as a defense mechanism. They held up long enough for help to arrive, but Steven hates the Lich now due to his complete disregard of life, love, and many other things.
  • Cartman is an interesting case for him. He isn't really riled by his verbal assaults, even when they involve his mother, and he just thinks him to be a kid that doesn't know any better. Despite that, the fact that he emits so much hatred, even for a kid, still discomforts him, and he does his best to avoid the 9-year old.
  • Visits the House of Gaming a lot, as he's a big fan of Sonic. The same goes for Cloud and Sailor Moon, whom he visits in the Houses of Weapons and Magic, respectively. He also visits the House of Music as he is a pretty good singer and ukulele player.
  • Often hangs out with Bart Simpson and Dennis Mitchell for a few (harmless) pranks. One even got Homer's attention, and he approves of Steven's friendship with his son. (Marge doesn't, though.)
  • Steven once thought Deoxys was a Gem after reading this theory. While it isn't true, Steven still hangs around the DNA Pokémon. In fact, Deoxys sometimes use his psychic powers to levitate Steven and two are known to fly around the pantheon. It always gives Pearl a panic attack.
  • If anyone ever gets worried about him, the other gods simply remind everyone to Believe in Steven.
  • For some reason, Steven has been mistaken for a Stand user with the Crystal Gems being his Stands. He does correct the misconception.
  • Has gone into a crisis after encountering Homeworld Gems. Now, he has a sort of identity crisis on whether he is his mom or not and whether the Crystal Gems blame him for her being gone. Thankfully, this hasn't hindered Steven's still being one of the more cheerful deities.
  • Turns out Steven likes robots. So it came to no surprise when he got excited when he met Optimus Prime, a GIANT ROBOT.
  • Gets along really well with Gentaro Kisaragi. Might be the fact that the two are really friendly people who wants to be friends with pretty much everyone. This also lead him to befriend the other Avatars of Friendship (Elena and Pinkie Pie) and has become an honorary member of the group, sealed with Gentaro's handshake, a party from Pinkie Pie, and a friendly fight with Elena.
    • During their first days together, Steven asked about the thing regarding the Friendship Asylum, and had to watch his friends burst into tears from everything that happened (Elena especially). Steven has consoled them that the asylum is gone, their bonds will make them stronger, and that they will help others who have fallen into despair with their bonds. The trio thanked Steven with the speech by hugging him as thanks.
      • And when Bayley ascended, the first thing she did for Steven was to give him one of her trademark hugs. Steven appreciated it...but then he was shattered to see Bayley pull a heel turn with her good "friend" Sasha Banks. He and the other Avatars of Friendship were seen depressed for a while.
  • Has a noted affiliation with cats—he notably has his own lion and has also been associated with the SWAT Kats, whom he immediately visited upon hearing they ascended.
  • When it's been found out that as a Crystal Gem he's also capable of fusion, and that he can even fuse with a human, some gods wonder what kinds of fusions would result if he were to get close enough to any of his Pantheon friends.
    • This has earned the attention of Trunks, who invited Goten and demonstrated their mastery of the Fusion Dance to introduce Steven to Gotenks.
  • Over time, Steven has improved in terms of combat skills, like spikes in his shield constructs to double-summoning shields.
  • If there is one thing that can actually anger Steven that deities are capable of, it's betraying his faith.
  • Steven's Astral Projection powers not only allows him to project himself into any of his Watermelon Stevens or enter dreams (earning himself a friendship with fellow Dream Walker Princess Luna), but even outright possess other people. Thankfully, his good-hearted nature prevents him from exploiting this.
  • While his spit is what he commonly uses to heal others, his tears can actually revive people, though there can be certain side effects, like a pink complexion and hair color like Lion, and the hair can serve as a Portal Network between themselves and Lion, allowing Steven to go in one and out the other. Thankfully in the Pantheon, this is reversible.
  • Due to her experiences, Elphaba feels that Steven is one of the few allies she truly has, and he has been trying her best to improve her attitude. Elphie can't help but appreciate his efforts.
  • Was glad to find a fellow Kid Hero in K.O. after hearing about how teamed up with Garnet in regards to the Crossover Nexus incident. Seeing as The Heart for the Avatars of Friendship needed feeling, he requested K.O to be that heart until Bayley returns. K.O. agreed and he was hugged by the Avatars of Friendship in return.
  • Many had heard of Steven's mother shattering one of the leaders of Gemkind, Pink Diamond. However, some had noticed that the story of Pink's shattering had holes, and combined with Rose having more, different powers compared to fellow Quartz Gem Amethyst, speculated that Rose was actually Pink Diamond, and that her "shattering" was just her faking her death. These deities were mocked because of the utter insanity of the idea. When the news of Rose, and by extension, Steven, actually being Pink Diamond finally spread through the Pantheon, many were shocked beyond belief. The ones who came to that conclusion ages ago simply shouted, "I KNEW IT!"
  • Finally, he did it. He managed to talk to the Diamonds, make White Diamond see the error of her ways and heal all the corrupted Gems. Almost every single hero in the Pantheon was heard cheering.

  • Sweet, compassionate, and pure thanks to her grandmother’s teachings, Tikal is a young female echidna who wishes peace and unity among all races. However, after her grandmother’s death, her father took over her clan and with his leadership, they became warmongering and want to gain power to defeat the Noctornus Clam by collecting the Chaos Emeralds and the Master Emerald by invading it’s altar. It was her days staying in the altar and befriending the local Chao that she became good friends with their guardian, Chaos and promised them that she would protect them, convince her father that violence is not a solution and that peace should be chosen. However, her efforts were ignored as her clan try to destroy the altar and collect the Chaos Emeralds and the Master Emerald. Seeing that the Chao Chaos protected are hurt, it triggers his wrath and try to kill them. Wanting to stop the destruction that is happening, she sacrificed her own life to seal Chaos so that no more violence could be fulfilled. It was this incident that made Angel Island into what it is today and from that day onward, the Echidna Clan have now dedicated themselves to protect the Master Emerald so that no more incidents could be happened until that duty is bestowed to it’s only survival, Knuckles.
    • About 4000 years later, Dr. Eggman would eventually destroy the Master Emerald to control Chaos and use him to take over the world. With her spirit freed, she tried to convince six heroes, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Big, and E-102 Gamma, by showcasing them her memories about the origins of clan and how their warmongering ways trigger Chaos’s wrath and desire to destroy the world. Unfortunately, Chaos eventually became Perfect Chaos thanks to absorbing the Chaos Emeralds and has flooded Station Square. She tried to convince Sonic that the only way to do it is to seal herself and Chaos again into the Master Emerald, but the hedgehog knew it’s not an ideal solution since Chaos’s anger wouldn’t be put to rest and so he transforms himself into Super Sonic and used the Chaos Emeralds’ positive energy to heal Chaos from his wrath. Realizing that the Chao he had protected are well taken care of, Chaos and Tikal eventually reconciled and move on to somewhere unknown.
  • Traveling somewhere unknown in spirit form, she was visited by Chaos who told her of how he ascended in the Pantheon and hopes to reunite with her fully there by requesting her ascension. Their case was eventually reached to the Court of Gods and saddened by Tikal’s story, her ascension is commenced and as a result, she is given a physical body all of her own, but she can still have access to her spirit form if she wants to. Now that Tikal is now in the Pantheon, she made it her duty to continue to advocate for peace and become Chaos’s Morality Pet to make sure that he wouldn’t be in rage ever again.
  • Hearing about her ascension, Sonic, Tails, Amy, Big, and E-102 Gamma have visited her to congratulate her. She is very happy to see them again (especially Sonic for purifying Chaos), willing to become their companion on their adventures in the Pantheon. She is sadden to hear of Gamma’s fate and is happy to see how he has been recovered in the Pantheon.
    • She is ecstatic to hear that Knuckles has continued his duty to protect the Master Emerald from any threat even if he’s a bit gullible on trusting people. She makes it her duty to guard the Master Emerald with Knuckles as she doesn’t want to see the Master Emerald being used from personal gain lime what her father did last time. She is annoyed of Rogue constantly stealing the Master Emerald due to her love for jewelry, though she’s willing to become her ally if the circumstances have required her to do so.
    • On the other hand, she absolutely gets along with Shadow the Hedgehog, since the former reminds the latter of Maria in personality. Tikal who was interested in his use of chaos energy, is extremely proud that he has come a long way from his vengeance and has now dedicated himself to protect his planet from evil threats. The two have become close friends as a result and the hedgehog introduced the echidna to Maria Robotnik. Of course, the two have got along really well and Tikal is happy to see that some of her family members have changed from the better because of her.
    • Hearing about Cream’s love for Chao to the point and owning one, Tikal became fast friends with Cream because of it. The young rabbit is happy upon hearing the friend of the guardian of the Chao and promised her that she’ll take good care of her two pet Chao, which pleases the echidna. Cream also occasionally asks Tikal if she could ever be in her tea gardens, which she gladly accepted every time.
    • She’s still mad at Dr. Eggman since he is the one who freed Chaos in the Master Emerald and that he never changes his way of wanting to dominate the world and using violence to do so. Her beliefs and friendship with Sonic and his allies caused her to also become enemies with all of Sonic’s enemies, never condemning of their actions and how they have hurt people for what they have done.
  • Thanks to her actions and having a sweet personality, she is welcome by the good-aligned deities in the Ghosts subhouse. She gets along with Casper the most since they are both pretty friendly and she pities him for wanting to interact with humans but scaring then away instead. Casper would then introduced her to Erma whom she also got along with though she’s freaked out over the fact when she becomes angry and Erma feels bad for her former life and promised her that if her father and his clan will come to the Pantheon, she’ll scare them to death. She also became friends with Rotom and when she hears what they can do, she frequently asks them if they could help her disable Eggman’s technology, which he accepted since they want to get payback on Eggman. King Boo is one of the few ghosts to earn Tikal’s hatred thanks to his reliance of destruction and sealing people in paintings. As a result, she became allies with Luigi, whom she admires for his kindness and bravery despite his cowardice and has been aiding him on ghost-hunting activities while in spirit form.
  • Tikal has a fondness of animals and loves to take care of them, which is why she is often seen in the House of Beast, who adore her for how she took care of them. She got along with Fluttershy, praising for using her house as a animal sanctuary and often visits her home to cure the animals and taking care of them along with the Chao she decided to took along the way. She has opposed Cruella DeVil, disgusted at her cruelty to animals and wanting to kill dogs to use their fur as coats, having no remorse for their actions. She pities Red Gyarados since he is a vengeful Pokemon and wants to calm him down, however, because of how destructive he is, she couldn’t find a solution for his problem as much as she wants to.
  • While traveling around the travel, she saw Pocahontas singing and speaking to some spirits. Intrigued, she introduced herself to the native woman and the two began to their story to the other. Pocahontas could see how similar she is to Tikal, yet different, since the latter never got to stop her clan’s warmongering ways until after her sacrifice, causing her to pity the echidna, yet she’s happy that Tikal could now be in peace now that Chaos’s rage is pure, resulting in them becoming good friends and the two conversing with each other of the stories and teachings of their respective tribes.
  • Due to her hatred of violence, she has opposed the concept of the House of War and Vengeance, the former believing that she is just a naive woman for not knowing why the concept of war exists. She became enemies with Khorne, for embodying the worst aspects of mankind and using violence in bad ways and the latter thinks she is just a foolish woman. She also opposes Madara Uchiha and Lord Voldemort for causing a war that killed thousands, hating the former for his narcissism and not seeing the error of his ways, though she does pity him that his way of life is what led him to his current path and is surprised that he’s doing this for the greater good, knowing that what he is doing is not right, and doesn’t like the latter for his pureblood supremacy and his hatred of muggleborns. She also doesn't like Atrocitus and his Red Lanterns due to keeping the hate of past lives burning, though does feel sympathy towards him for his backstory.
  • Hearing about how Frank, Casey, and Athena stopping a catastrophe on Earth, she went to their temple to simply thank them of stopping it. Wanting to hear their story, she is horrified of what the Monitor did to the people of their planet and supports them of wanting to recruit other humans to make the world a better placd. After hearing their cause, she started supporting them whatever way she can to stop events like that happening ever again.
  • She gets along with Nausicaa, being sweet and compassionate girls who befriended different beings alike. Tikal is sad to see the state of the world Nausicaa lives in and wishes her the best she could offer. In spite of Nausicaa’s Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with San, it doesn’t stop Tikal from befriending San and the two indeed become friends, talking to each other about their shared love of nature and animals. She was eventually introduced to Ashitaka, who became friends because of their hatred of violence even if they reluctantly use it and San’s adoptive mother, Moro for being a protector of nature and loving her daughter unconditionally, something that Tikal didn’t experience for her father.
  • She has also befriended Ophilia and H'aanit. The former for being a cleric and reluctant warrior who hates violence and the latter for being a huntress who has a deep respect to nature and a connection to all beasts that lets her being able to understand them. In addition to that, despite the fact H'aanit understood that Tikal never wanted to use violence unles it’s necessary, she still wants to train her on using different styles of combat in fear that she’ll get hurt, which Tikal refuses every time she asked. On the other hand, Tikal has accepted Ophilia’s proposal of teaching her non-combatant spells that could help her defend herself against enemies and help her heal herself.
  • Being a young woman who willingly sealed herself to stop Chaos’s wrath, she feels bad for Naruto Uzumaki and Gaara since they’ve housed beings that hate humanity unwillingly and being shunned by the people for it. She’s proud to see that they have come a long way, being now leaders of their own villages and beloved by the people and befriending the jinchuuriki and having them set aside their own hatred towards humanity and willingly helping them. She feels much more bad for Abigail William, since the being she house sis much more dangerous that could kill and corrupt more people and not being able to understand the power she got from what she sealed inside of her. Together with Naruto and Gaara, they try to help her as much as possible and getting her to enjoy her childhood as much as she wants.
  • She befriended Relena Darian for being like her, supporting pacifism despite their family’s hatred of it and due to being a princess, Tikal became her biggest supporter of advocating for peace. Relena has also befriend Chao because of her and wants to take a pet Chao of her own. She also befriended Shoto Todoraki, pitying him for what his father did to him and is proud that he decided to follow his own path and dismisses what his father has expected of him. As a result, she stood beside to protect him in case his father arrives despite the fact she doesn’t want to fight.
  • Hearing about the trauma one Suzu Houjou has suffered because of World War II, she went to her temple to soothe her pain. She is happy to see that Suzu has since then recovered from it and decides to remain with her husband’s family despite the dangers of staying in his home because of the war. This resulted in Suzu teaching Tikal on how to cook and the chores that a housewife is expected to do, wanting her to take care of herself. Tikal has also become a babysitter of her adoptive daughter since she wants her to spend quality time for the rest of the day, something that Suzu is thankful for.
  • Due to guarding the Master Emerald, she occasionally had encounters of Rin Tohsaka and Biscuit Krueger wanting to steal the Master Emerald yet are afraid to do so because of Knuckles. She is annoyed that they are just stealing it due to it being a gem but doesn’t have the guts to fight them as usual, which is why she mostly lets Knuckles to do the job as much as it pains her to do so since it’s the only way for them to stay away from it.
The fight is over, harmony is restored, and life goes on

  • Annoyed By: Timmy Turner
  • Respected by: The Incredibles, Ra's Al Ghul
  • Interested in: Miles "Tails" Prower, Morty Smith, Maya Fey
  • Opposes: The Houses of Crime, Slaughter, and War in general
  • Shared the godhood with his adopted brother, Nightwing, until Dick decided Tim was ready to hold the position by himself.
  • After the death of Jason Todd, Tim (who, using his impressive detective skills, had already deduced Batman and Robin's secret identities) saw that Batman was becoming increasingly merciless without someone to keep him in check. Batman needed a Robin, and when he failed to convince the original to return to the role, he resolved to don the mantle himself, becoming the third Robin. Although he's since matured from that, he still has heavy ties to the identity, as his new superhero name, Red Robin, makes abundantly clear.
    • Although completely capable of leading teams himself, he actually prefers to be the second-in-command and/or The Strategist of whatever group he's in.
    • Syndrome is envious of Tim, seeing him as a harsh, irritating look into What Could Have Been had his hero simply accepted him as a sidekick all those years ago. The fact that Tim was accepted by Batman, the poster boy for I Work Alone, is especially grating. Tim has noted that, while Syndrome never got over Mr. Incredible's rejection, he never actually expected or even intended to be Robin, and his ultimate goal is to one day withdraw from the hero business, go to college, and live a normal life with his girlfriend. This has garnered respect from Mr. Incredible and his family.
    • His wish to eventually retire has made him a noteworthy opponent of Crime, War, and Slaughter in general (he's hardly alone in that). He has an especially personal hatred of Vile, who reminds him of the General AKA Ulysses Hadrian Armstrong, his arch-enemy.
  • Is the best detective of all the Robins, and may one day surpass Batman and become one of, if not the, best detectives in the pantheon. Has gotten into a professional competition with Near for that title, and together they've set up a secure chat room where detectives from all over the pantheon can consult and swap theories with each other over cases. Batman likens it to a similar amateur detectives' chat room he uses to gauge other people's viewpoints and trade theories. Using this chat room, crimes that were once considered unsolvable even by the Pantheon's standards have been solved in literally minutes or hours.
    • His investigative skills are good enough to have earned him the title of "Detective" from Ra's Al Ghul, who normally reserves it solely for Batman himself. After his half-sister failed to conceive a child with him, Ra's has been waiting for the right time to try again.
  • Although he'll work with any member(s) of the Bat Family that asks him to (and, by extension, fight any enemy of them, particularly Two-Face, who's the arch-enemy of all Robins as a whole and once beat him nearly to death on one of his first outings as Robin), he has a lot of trouble working with the other Robin, Damian Wayne. Due to his training from the League of Assassins, Damian believes that he needs to "earn" his place as "Robin" in the Bat Family and as Bruce's son, and seeks to do that by killing Tim. Even though Damian has long since learned this isn't the case, he still routinely sabotages his equipment in a way that could kill him. Tim understandably has problems with this.
    • Unlike most other members of the Bat Clan, he has no actual desire to take on the Batman persona if he can help it, though he has had to on certain occasions, and in one universe even succeeded Terry McGinnis as Batman Beyond using some time travel shenanigans.
    • Though he's acknowledged he has a thing for Batgirls, as all Robins do, he was still very confused when he heard of a universe where he ended up marrying Barbara Gordon. Not that he has anything against Barbara, but he doesn't really like her like that. If anything, that would be Nightwing's deal.
  • When not on a mission and often when he is, he's rarely seen without one of his best friends, Kon-El AKA Superboy, playing the straight man to Connor's outrageous behavior. They've been working on a plan to get their other best friend, Bart Allen AKA Impulse, into the pantheon so they can form a new incarnation of Young Justice. He's looked into other "sidekicks", like Tails, Morty, and Maya Fey, in preparation for that day.
    • He's also known to associate with Supergirl, as they've both been members of the Teen Titans.
  • Not that he actually needs a reason to be enemies with Trigon, but his enmity has become far more direct ever since he took over his mind and steered him to rape two of his teammates in the Teen Titans.
  • Although both he and Jubilee still feel the mutual attraction they had when they first met, they've realized that much has changed since that time, with Tim having a girlfriend and Jubilee having been a vampire and having an adopted son. They've decided to remain friends for now, though there are some in the pantheon who would like to see them get together.
  • Met Spider-Man (both Peter Parker and Miles Morales) while on a mission (Peter's temple is in the same House as his, but he's not there very often) and noticed how similar they are in personality. It didn't take long for him to deduce Spidey's secret identity, and they often hang out with each other out-of-costume, although Tim tried to use the alias "Alvin Draper" at first. Peter knew that wasn't his name because "no one would introduce themselves with an awful name like that when they could use a cool nickname like 'Al' or 'Vinnie'!". Superboy was grinning all throughout the exchange.
    • Peter introduced him to Danny Phantom, who was also forced to entrust his secret identity to Tim after he revealed he'd already figured it out without realizing it was even a secret to begin with. When he heard of Danny's dark future self, it reminded him of his scary future self who had turned evil, too. Tim has vowed to do what he can to help keep Dark Danny in check. After all, perhaps fighting someone else's future self will make it easier to fight his own, somehow.
  • Ashi once staged an intervention to get him to admit and discuss his suicidal thoughts with her. Although Tim was initially resistant, claiming he was too busy, he eventually relented. What they've discussed is known only by those two, but Tim's been in much better spirits since then.
  • Prefers to be called "Tim", but will also answer to "Timothy". However, he doesn't like the name "Timmy" and will not answer to it. For this reason, he tends not to stick around whenever he's in the same place as Timmy Turner. He's got nothing against the kid himself, other than the fact that he keeps following him around dressed as "Cleft the Boy Chin Wonder".

    Tommy Oliver

  • High Priest: Yamato Tribe Knight Burai/Dragon Ranger (his Japanese counterpart as the Green Ranger)
  • Allies: The Entire Toku Heroes in the pantheon, The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, Bulk and Skull member of the Kamen Rider Club (particularly Gentaro Kisaragi), CM Punk (surprisingly enough)
  • Enemies: Every ascended Toku villains, especially Mesogog and Lord Drakkon, The Psycho Rangers
  • Former Enemy: Mitsuzane Kureshima
  • Tommy wasn't amongst the initial lineup when Zordon formed the Power Rangers, but in fact a 'late-comer', having been brainwashed by Rita Repulsa to be her enforcer. However, once that was taken care of, he went to become a helper of the Power Rangers... too much of a value that eventually he got promoted into a mainstay and eventual legend of the whole Power Rangers, allowing him to ascend.
  • He wasn't the first to do so, however, his first Japanese counterpart Burai/Dragon Ranger did it first on different circumstances, but Tommy apparently had more 'tours' and 'staying' power. He nearly got killed out of jealousy by Burai himself for this, but after convincing from friends of both sides, they managed to turn it into friendship.
  • Tommy does not get along well with Char, due to constantly wanting to sacrifice all giant robots for the greater good. However, while Heero agrees with him on this point, Primus, as a god of living machines, considers Tommy a genocidal maniac. As all are "good" aligned and know it, they are contractually forbidden to fight about this, and restrict themselves to very stern looks.
  • In the Toku Base, he's the High Saint of the Power Rangers. Unfortunately, he had learned that both Katherine and Kimberly were there. The House of Love have been trying to figure out who Tommy eventually marries. Tommy... won't really comment on it.
  • Was originally going to fight Leonardo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a Death Battle, but Zitz wanted to prove his worth so Tommy stepped back (hint: Zitz lost). However, Wiz and Boomstick have announced that Tommy has finally been chosen for battle as the White Ranger, along with the Tigerzord, to fight off Heero Yuy's rival and Char Aznable's High Priest Zechs Merquise and his mecha the Epyon. Tommy is now training with his fellow Toku Base members for the big day. Unfortunately, he lost.
    • Though some claim that Tommy was actually testing out the Tigerzord's weaponry, when one of the blasts from the weaponry hit Noin, killing her & causing Zechs to go on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge, resulting in a Death Battle and Tommy's loss to Zechs Merquise.
      • Upon learning how Jason Lee Scoot was heading off for Death Battle, he helped trained him and the other Rangers so that they would achieve victory. History repeated, and the Power Rangers got defeated too.
  • Is returning in his Green Ranger form to fight in the Power Rangers "Legend War", to help the Megaforce Rangers against the Armada (Although most of his followers wished he was Black Brachio Ranger).
  • Is not fond of Lord Deimos, whose physical appearance reminds him a little too much of Lord Zedd.
  • Tommy had a rather mind-scarring experience or 'dream' of sorts when he learned about a realm where he and the rest of the Power Rangers looked like they constantly overpraise the Super Sentai, with him acting too much like Big One. While he acknowledges the importance of the Super Sentai, Tommy really doesn't like what was seen in that realm...
  • When he's not in his temple, he teaches Science in the Elysium Academy. Many gods are trying to scratch their heads as to how he even became a teacher in the first place with speculations that perhaps that brainwashing meddling in his Zeo things could've been what got him on that path. He was not happy to find Mesagog in the Pantheon though.
  • Was surprised to find former bullies Bulk and Skull in the Pantheon and even more surprised to learn of something known as Angel Grove's Last Stand which they lead. He's respected them more because of that. There was also another time where they were Power Rangers for a day and beat the monster, despite everyone's expectations that they would fail.
  • Learned of the existence of Lord Drakkon, which would've been him if he decided to reject Jason's offer to become the Green Ranger. And then he learned of the Shattered Grid incident which resulted in Lord Drakkon killing him...
    • Having learned of the concept of Personas (and that Gentaro Kisaragi and Shinji Kido have obtained Personas there), he's decided to confront Lord Drakkon once and for all. Now all he needs is a team (and no, he's not suggesting to Recruit Teenagers with Attitude).
  • Now that his Evil Counterpart, Lord Drakkon arrived, Tommy called in every Ranger, warning them all of Drakkon’s power. All took it to heart.

The Toa Hordika 
  • Lesser Deities (Intermediate Deities as Toa)
  • Symbol: (as Turaga) their Badges of Office, (as Toa) their Toa Disks
  • Theme Song: A New Constellation
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (as a Team, each member has their own alignment)
  • Portfolio: Elemental Powers, Masks, Magic Knights, Precursor Heroes and Mentors to the Toa Nuva, once mistakenly thought to be not destined to be Toa, forcibly mutated into the Toa Hordika, gaining natural Rhotuka launchers in the process, Brought Down To Almost Normal of their own volition to reawaken the Matoran, Older and Wiser, Unity, Duty, Destiny
  • Domain: Legacy, Heroism, Destiny, Friendship, Leadership, Wisdom
  • Herald: Lhikan
  • Allies: Mata Nui, the Toa Nuva, the Toa Mahri, Tassadar, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Peter Parker/Spiderman, Anivia, Zelda, Azura, Emmet, John Egbert, Hata no Kokoro
  • Enemies: Teridax, Phazon, Grima, the Gravemind, members of the GUAD or GUAM, Null Sector
  • The Makuta had ascended. Mata Nui's brother was a threat once more - and now to an entire multiversal Pantheon of beings, not just to his own people. The Great Spirit, knowing the danger that Teridax presented, decided that it was time that more beings from his own universe receive the gift and duty of ascension - and who better than the Turaga of Mata Nui, guardians of the Matoran for a thousand years, having faced the Makuta of Metru Nui in the course of doing so, and those who guided the Toa Nuva? It was thus that Mata Nui brought Vakama and the others to the attention of the Pantheon at large, thus that it was decided that they were worthy in their role as Precursor Heroes - and thus that they ascended.
    • They were, of course, more than pleased to find first the Toa Nuva and then Mata Nui himself upon their ascension - though they were similarly unhappy to find the Great Beings absent. Seeking to work once more for Unity and to protect and guide their new domain as they did Mata Nui, they have joined both the GUAG and the Pantheonic Toa in an advisory capacity.
      • They were even happier to find that Lhikan had come with them as their Herald after his sacrifice to save Vakama a thousand years before and were more than pleased to tell him that they had indeed managed to save the heart of Metru Nui. After hearing their full story, Lhikan for his part informed them that he was proud of them, for they had in their time as Turaga surpassed anything that he had done as a Toa.
      • One being that they were not happy to find in the Pantheon was Ahkmou, who had been appointed as Teridax's Herald after being his agent amongst the Matoran while they were on Mata Nui and acting as 'Turaga of Metru Nui' while Makuta was in control of the universe and the actual Turaga were locked up. They mean to corner him at some point to have words.
      • Though the journey that the soon-to-be Toa Inika undertook was against the orders of (the majority of) the Turaga, they are still more than pleased to have the Mahri in the Pantheon with them; the majority of them, in fact, were their aides as Matoran. In particular, Nuju is overjoyed to see Matoro again.
  • The Turaga are noteworthy in their victory over Teridax as the Toa Metru in two respects: first of all, they had been Toa for only a minute amount of time when they did so; secondly, and perhaps more shockingly, they managed to divert Teridax's Plan to rule over the Matoran. Not only that, Vakama, through threats to destroy the Kanohi Vahi, managed to secure from the Makuta a year-long peace with the Matoran so that they could rebuild!
  • At one point in their time as Toa Hordika, they discovered evidence that they weren't destined to be Toa at all; instead, Lhikan had originally planned to give six Matoran from their pasts who had discovered Metru Nui's six Great Disks the Toa Stones that transformed them into Toa Metru but decided against it at the last moment, instead choosing the six of them after their names appeared in his mind - and that the deception was Makuta's doing. As it turns out, Teridax had in turn been deceived; knowing that Makuta would try to disrupt the process, the Order of Mata Nui had convinced him that the other candidates were meant to be the Toa Metru so that he would give the names of the ''actual'' destined Matoran to Lhikan.
  • While they can adopt their Toa Metru or Hordika forms in the Pantheon and, if it is threatened, fully intend to do so, the Turaga spend most of their time as…well, Turaga. Upon being asked about this, Vakama answered that they prefer to rely upon their wisdom rather than their strength to solve problems these days - and, after all, what would the sacrifice of their powers to return the Matoran to consciousness be worth if they simply took them back now?
    • However, an alternative has been offered to them by Yu Narukami: given that they would prefer not to invalidate the sacrifice of their Toa powers by taking them back, perhaps acquiring a different power that they can use even as Turaga would serve as a loophole (even if its application is limited to specific dimensions). They can even interpret it as another stage of their development as individuals, as confronting their Shadows (different from the Shadow Toa the Toa Nuva faced) is basically confronting their past and deepest secrets. Vakama has promised that they'll think about it.
  • The Turaga have become particularly good friends with Tassadar after meeting in their shared sub-house and subsequently discovering that they had both mentored the foremost beings of their respective races and had a history of defying corrupt authorities. They frequently visit one another's temples to discuss leadership and threats to the Pantheon and to reminisce on their pasts. For the former reason they are also friendly with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda, though, while they respect the elder Jedi's wisdom, they tend to fall more in line with Obi-Wan's somewhat softer approach when it comes to mentorship.
  • Vakama can often be found wandering the House of Heroes, seeking inspiration from Mata Nui and talking to those who he meets to dispense advice and discuss the matters of the Pantheon. It was on one of these walks that he bumped into Peter Parker. After talking with him for a while, he realised that he had discovered something of a kindred spirit and resolved to keep him from making the same mistakes that he did as leader of his Toa Team.
  • Nokama is known to get along well with Princess Zelda, admiring her in particular for her wisdom and kindness, and was even more pleased to discover that her latest incarnation has scholarly tendencies. She has also struck up a rapport with Azura given the common ground in their roles to Vakama and Corrin respectively; given Nokama's long experience in using her now-limited Water manipulation, she is teaching the Vallite some of her techniques so that she needn't expend so much of her power at once to be effective in combat.
    • She is now putting her experience as a Ga-Matoran Teacher to use at the School.
  • Nuju's disinclination to use a language that most of the Pantheon can understand does somewhat limit his ability to engage with the vast majority of the members of the Pantheon. Fortunately for him, the Sub-House of Birds exists. In particular he enjoys spending time with Anivia due to their similar dispositions and Elemental affinity. On the other hand, he considers some of them to be something of an annoyance.
    • That said, given that he feels that only those willing to make the time to understand him are worth his time, he's rather miffed that some of those people just use translation devices (which is rather difficult as the language of bird Rahi isn't exactly a common tongue). While they can say they did put effort in by taking the time to acquire them (by way of purchase, invention, etc.), he still feels like it's cheating somewhat.
  • Whenua, after expressing significant interest in the Pantheon's equivalent of the Archives, was given the role of leading research on the artefacts there, taking over from the SCP Foundation's teams. He fully intends to put the skills that he learned as Turaga and, thus, administrator of the often-fractious Onu-Koro to use.
  • Onewa, former Carver and Turaga of a village of craftsmen as he is, spends a lot of his time in the House of Craft and, as a fellow LEGO deity and embodiment of a lot of the better traits that he can now say he wishes he had as a Toa, has gained significant respect for Emmet. He has also taken to holding and judging contests of artistry there, putting his reputation as 'The Referee' to good use. He, Pohatu and Takanuva are also attempting to introduce Kolhii to the House of Sports.
  • Matau is known for his pranks, particularly on the overly serious Nuju, and the Pantheon merely offers more opportunities for this. In particular he has made himself known to John Egbert, hoping to pick up some new tricks; needless to say, he expects his Mask of Illusion to be getting a little more use soon...
  • Like the Toa Nuva, they have elected to grant Hata no Kokoro use of their Kanohi should she need them. That does not mean that they are not concerned about her emotional instability, however; Matau and Nokama in particular have decided to take it upon themselves to take the girl under their wing, the latter because she thinks that she can help her as she helped Vakama and the former because he sees a little of his old self in her.
  • Due to their experiences with the Visorak, the Turaga are inclined to distrust the various biological manipulators and swarms of the Pantheon. Meeting with Abathur has convinced them that he is mostly harmless, if a little disturbing. They are far, far more worried about the potential alliance between Phazon, Grima and the Gravemind - Vakama has even had visions detailing the horror that the Pantheon might come to be if such an alliance is formed - and are considering forming a coalition to combat it should it ever come to fruition.
  • Of the Pantheonic Alliances, it is not actually the Grand United Alliance of Evil that they worry over most; as they and other Toa have proven before, evil can be triumphed over with surprising frequency even in the direst of circumstances, not to mention the fact that they have been able to exploit infighting in Shadow's ranks in the past through temporary pacts. Instead, it is the growing power of the Grand Unified Alliances of Machines and Destruction that the Turaga fear beyond the others; both are united in purpose to a degree that is unmatched by the GUAE, though it is a perverse Unity in comparison to their own. To counter the latter, Vakama has been working to craft Masks of Biomechanics for distribution in the event of a machine assault.
    • However, they were eventually forced to turn back to their Toa forms temporarily for the first time in the Pantheon when Null Sector caught wind of that plot and mounted an assault on their temple. The six were only barely able to hold them off, even with their restored powers, but nonetheless demonstrated the efficacy of the Kanohi in the process, slowing down their forces significantly and forcibly shutting down their weak-AI auxilia. This failure has pushed Null Sector into an alliance with Teridax, an old enemy of the Turaga who has promised them a way to counter the masks’ power.
    • They are actually highly sympathetic to Lucifer and the Grand Unified Alliance of Chaos, since a great many of its members remind them of how they were during their time as Hordika; as such, they are more than willing to speak to those deities within the Alliance who, should they suffer from similar afflictions, wish to be cured of them as they were.
  • "You are not the first Toa!"
