Overdeities

    Hircine 
It is time for my hunt, and the Pantheon is to take part.

Hircine, Daedric Prince of the Hunter Role Reversal (The Huntsman of the Princes, The Father of Manbeasts, Hungry Cat, Alrabeg the Hunter, Gulibeg the Quick Fox, Hrokkibeg the Mighty Bear, Storihbeg the Manbeast, Uricanbeg the Great Stag)

  • Overdeity (though don’t expect him to fight at full power)

  • Respects: The rest of the House of Hunters (such as Gondar, Rengar, and the Monster Hunters)
  • Within the island of Solstheim there lives a tribe of Nords known as the Skaal and in their folklore there exists an event known as the Bloodmoon Prophecy. Once every era when werewolves hunt throughout the lands, when a pillar of flame erupts over a lake of ice, when Horkers are slaughtered along the coastlines, and when the moon turns blood red is when the Daedric Prince Hircine’s Hunt is brought to Muundus. None embodies the sport and glory of the hunt better than Hircine whose very realm, The Hunting Grounds, has this going on forever. But he is not without fairness. Indeed, in his hunts and even in his realm the prey are given the sporting chance to survive or even turn the tables on the hunters (slim as they are) since if they weren’t then it isn’t a true hunt to begin with. For example, to the few mortals who get a chance to face Hircine he does not fight with full power but in a weaker form as it would be virtually impossible to best him otherwise. This is how the Nerevarine was able to defeat him and end the Third Era’s Bloodmoon.
    • This is also true with his werecreature followers: When transformed they are more often than not the predators, tearing apart anyone unlucky enough to cross their paths due to intense bloodlust. But when in their normal forms they are in turn hunted by those they once preyed upon, usually by factions dedicated to hunting them like the Silver Hand.
  • Though polite, doting lord and father over his followers who is respectful to those who prove their worth this does not mean Hircine is benevolent. He's still Daedra, after all, and they don't operate under the morality mortals follow. Once, when a man summoned Hircine the Prince said that to prove his faithfulness he must hunt his children and when the man denied the request Hircine destroyed the cave, turned the family into trolls and decided to hunt them all anyways. Speaking of Daedra, he's not the first Daedric Princes to have claimed some amount of influence in the Pantheon, Hermaeus Mora (and possibly Mephala with her Ebony Blade in the Treasures) having been here long before Hircine. They stay out of each other's way seeing as though their spheres aren't in conflict with one another.
  • The creation of lycanthropy and the diseases that cause it is very much attributed to Hircine. While werewolves often come to mind, often glossed over are the werebears, wereboars, werevultures, werecrocodiles, supposedly weresharks, etc. Unlike the Daedric Prince Molag Bal, who simply created vampires as a massive "screw you" to Arkay and only involves himself with them once in a while, Hircine actually looks after his werebeasts whether communicating through dreams or claiming their souls to partake in the Hunting Grounds after they die. To him, it is his gift to mortals and though the other werewolves in the Pantheon aren’t really his, he looks over them regardless. Fenrir Greyback is one such werewolf favored by Hircine, who isn't at all against his monstrous nature. As a result, many other ascended werecreatures don't return the affections if he's willing to let someone as depraved as Fenrir into his fold, not that Hircine minds.
    • Interestingly, he doesn't have any ill will towards vampires and his werewolves don't really have any sort of conflict against them either barring certain individual cases.
    • Not everyone sees the ability to become werebeasts as a 'gift'. Hircine was furious when he heard how Remus Lupin sees his blessing while Remus hates the fact that someone as vile as Fenrir is praised by Hircine for his monstrous nature. While he’s still pondering what to think over the existence of a Hug Wolf being a more affection form of his gift, Hircine was still offended that Finn cured his lycanthropy. Finn meanwhile has it out for the Daedric Prince after he decided to go and order a hunt on his brother Jake and another one on Marceline thinking they'd make great game.
    • Having heard of the Daedric Prince through Hagatha when he keeps sending hunters to go into Witchwood, Vincent Godfrey utterly despises Hircine for creating werewolves and though he can't do much to the Prince himself he's glad that he's already earned the Prince's enmity through his dedication to kill each and every one of them. The Hunter and Ludwig aren't are no allies to the Huntsman either due to their own troubles with werewolves in Yharnam. It doesn't help that Hircine actually affiliated himself with the Moon Presence, wanting to encourage the hunts even further.
  • Has five different forms he can take on when dealing with mortals. First is a humanoid man known as the Hunter; Alrabeg, who not only participates in hunts and represents guile but is also perhaps Hircine's most well known aspect of them all. Second is a speedy canid known as the Quick Fox; Gulibeg, who uses its inherent speed to trick opponents into falling into certain doom. Those who have their own wit may find themselves lent some pointers by the Quick Fox. Third is the Mighty Bear; Hrokkibeg, who simply seeks to rest. Disturb him, and you'll be torn to tiny ribbons with his strength, but if you show respect he'll be nice right back. Fourth is the Manbeast; Storihbeg, who is assumed when Hircine wants to interact with his werewolf progeny. Lastly, the fifth aspect is the Great Stag; Uricanbeg, who appears either to cull the weak within herds or if he is on the hunt for a mate.
    • After Hircine's bold claim of being the Deity of Hunting in the Pantheon (which was mostly directed to Artemis and Erastil), many deities like to point out the similarities between his Hunter aspect and Erastil, mostly due to the deer head thing going on. Still, the difference in alignments was made clear and oppose each other.
    • Hircine once encountered Xerneas while he took the form of the Great Stag. Witnessing the Life Pokémon evade and fight off gods greedy enough for immortality (despite the redundancy of being gods already), they struck conversation. Having witnessed it pull off Geomancy and a Total Party Kill soon after, Hircine praised the Pokémon for turning the tables on its pursuers. Xerneas however was cautious of the Daedric Prince and for good reason as it wouldn't be out of the question for Hircine to suddenly dub Xerneas "the Hare" and hunt it soon. After hearing the encounter, the Nature Preservers quickly took note that while Hircine is strongly affiliated with hunting that doesn't mean he's one with nature.
    • After accidentally stumbling onto a shrine depicting Hircine as the Hunter, Mordecai and Rigby immediately turned the other way since they thought the deer that tried to hunt them while camping with Margaret and Eileen was back, only that he was god this time around. Hircine clarified that no, that deer-man was a different entity and they all would of been slaughtered if it was him. While Eustace was out camping with Muriel and Courage, Eustace saw an outline of Hircine. Thinking it was the deer that both tried to hunt him and embarrassed him on a game show he tried to take the opportunity to finally take revenge. While Courage and Muriel escaped, the old farmer was found riddled with spear wounds. He got better soon after.
  • Like all Princes, Hircine has his own set of artifacts. As the Hunter, he has been known the wield both the Spear of Bitter Mercy and the Spear of the Hunt though the former is more famous despite its mystery. One legend surrounding the Spear of Bitter Mercy is that when a Nord hunter named Thane Icehammer unknowingly used it to kill werebeats Hircine personally stabbed the Nord with it whereupon the tip remained inside and soon drove Icehammer insane. There's also Savior's Hide where in common legend was a gift to the very first and only mortal to have survived and escaped the Hunting Grounds, made from the hide of Hircine himself. Though only the curiass is found nowadays, it grants the wearer resistance to magic (or vulnerability to it but protection against oathbreakers, it depends). Lastly is the Ring of Hircine, which can grant the wearer the ability to control one's werewolf transformations or the ability to become one if they weren't one already. The Dragonborn came (or rather was cursed) into possession of it to help out a remorseful werewolf and depending what they decide to do, Hircine may of rewarded them his ring without the curse or the aforementioned Savior's Hide.
  • Because of the Daedric Prince’s devotion to the hunt and those worthy of his time, Hircine has little care for the grand conflicts in the Pantheon. The times where he does it’s only when his sphere overlaps somehow, such as when he needs to hunt down new query. While fascinated by many of the House of Beast’s wildlife gathered throughout all time and space, he'll hunt sapient life as well if he so chooses. Given the general populace of the Pantheon it isn't as quite rigged towards the predators as before which pleases Hircine. While generally quite fond of the House of Hunters in general — having given the likes of Gondar, Rengar, and the Monster Hunters praise for their skills — Hircine took special note of the Yautja's representative god, Scarface. He awaits to face them when the Pantheon's Bloodmoon arrives in the Pantheon, win or lose.
    • That being said, the Daedric Prince has shown visible disdain for the YHVH. This is mostly due to being threatened by a Daedric Prince not unlike the Absolute Lawmaker; Jyggalag, Daedric Prince of Order. His power was that much of a threat that all the other Daedric Princes (including those not originally Princes like Malacath) cursed Jyggalag into perhaps the worst punishment possible: He was transformed into his polar opposite, the Daedric Prince of Madness Sheogorath. While Hircine has little to worry about YHVH due to no longer being an active force, that hasn't stopped his hatred for those like Him such as Yaldabaoth and Zelenin. The hatred is returned as Daedra themselves represent change, in other words the chaos to their law.
  • He’s much more cautious around the more tricky deities in the Pantheon thanks to one fateful encounter with Sheogorath. The story goes that the Daedric Prince of Madness challenged Hircine to prepare a champion to do battle with his in three years. When they met again, Hircine came with a Daedroth inflicted with lycanthropy. A were-daedroth, if you will. Sheogorath came with... a songbird. The bird won because Hircine’s champion tore itself to pieces trying to hit the thing. Even though he hasn't tried his hand at making something like the were-daedroth since that defeat apparently he doesn't want another suffer another hit to his pride, which is something people like Loki and Xingo are capable of doing. This thankfully means the Pantheon won't see something as fearsome as a creature like that any time soon.
Take my token, and wear it well. Hereafter, take your prey, and whisper my name.

    Protectors of the Plot Continuum 
The Protectors of the Plot Continuum, Divine Organization of Mary Sue Hunters
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ppc_4751.jpg
Agents Jay and Acacia
  • The organization as a whole are Overdeities, and it's necessary in order to keep Sues under control. Most individual members range from Demideities to Intermediate.
  • Symbol: The PPC Logo
  • Alignment: Lawful Good as a whole, though at their worst they may slip into Chaotic Neutral due to losing their sanity over time during their careers.
  • Portfolio: Mary Sue Hunters, Running The Risk Of Becoming Like What They Are Hunting, Using any means necessary, Preparation Varies, All Stories Are Real Somewhere, Mega Crossover, Requiring a bit of knowledge in source materials, Deconstruction of fanworks, Not giving up in their mission, Genre Roulette, Using technology powered by stabilized plot holes, Metafiction, Overstaffed
  • Domains: Hunting, Creativity, Continuity, Narrative
  • High Priests: The Anti-Cliché and Mary-Sue Elimination Society
  • Allies: The SCP Foundation, The Men In Black, Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, Terry Pratchett, Cosmos, Lieutenant Mary Sue, Dream Of The Endless, Ichigo Momomiya, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Ryotaro Nogami/Kamen Rider Den-O, Rintarou Okabe, Ahiru/Princess Tutu, Rika Furude, Peacock, Pinkie Pie, Meteora Osterreich
  • Enemies: Barbatos, The Anti-Monitor, Lord Fuse, Melkor, YHVH, Lucifer, Nekron, Merged Zamasu, Galeem and Dharkon, Tabuu, Polygon Man, SCP-173, BEN, Bernkastel, Herr Drosselmeyer, Altair
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Malal, Cthulhu, Lambdadelta, Popuko & Pipimi, ZONE, Master Hand and Crazy Hand, Deadpool, Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith
  • Currently Surveying: Haruhi Suzumiya
  • Okay with: Shiroe, Akatsuki
  • The PPC is a strong organization of multiple Agents, tasked with the capture and extermination of Mary Sues. Their work over the years granted them a position in the Pantheons. At first, they were a little irked considering their Department of Implausible Crossovers dealt with nonsensical crossovers but when they see that a considerable number of characters actually got along perfectly fine, they ultimately gave in.
    • Every agent packs a Mary Sue Litmus Device, which detects whether or not the person is a Sue note note note note note note note .
    • They have decided to kick out the Disgraces from the Pantheons entirely, seeing them more of a trouble than they're worth (and after getting a rude wake-up call from how people on the Isle of the Lost are treated). They're one of the few to remember them. They have also retconned the Fallen (not just the Transformers villain) as well, though not completely since their treatment were not as bad as the Disgraces.
  • Their role in the Court of the Gods are the pursuers of alleged Sues. In essence: They investigate potential Sues, and they prosecutes them with the help of the Senior Attorneys. donk-donk.
    • Nowadays, the Sues and the Realm of the Castaways are brought to a near non-existent minimum, which they are grateful for. But since they fear that more will come, the Protectors requested Gygax and Arneson to be official Perimeter Guards of the Pantheons. The request was accepted and that's where the Protectors have been ever since.
  • The Organization finally ran a Litmus Test on Lieutenant Mary Sue and found that she passed. This let her escape out of their hellish custody and land her own Temple in the subhouse of Protagonists. Mary is forever thankful for them, and aids the PPC in their missions against the bad-fic Sues as a full-fledged member.
  • They have been trying to fend off SCP-173 since it has proven to be a troublesome annoyance for them thanks to 173's powers. Luckily, they are not alone as the SCP Foundation teamed up with them to contain 173 for longer. They also help keep up Masquerades around the Pantheons as not everybody takes being a fictional character too well. The same goes with partnering with the Men in Black; it helps that the MIB loaned neuralyzers to the Protectors to aid them in keeping the stability of the plot continuum.
  • To gain more allies in maintaining the plot continuum, they have made partnerships in Sir Terry Pratchett and Dream of the Endless, who gave them help should the Sues be more of a hassle than usual; it helps that their stories are inspired by Pratchett's which makes him get along with them easier. The Protectors also partnered with Ichigo Momomiya, Harry Porter and Percy Jackson since their followers often made a lot of Wish Fulfillment stories with them and their friends in it; Harry is grateful that he's allies with them so that he can get away from a certain Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way...
    • They have made a diplomatic alliance with Cosmos, who supports their endeavors in their mission to maintain the continuums and that they'll make it in spite of their dysfunctional work environment. The other GUA leaders are obviously unhappy about this since for Melkor and Lucifer, less Sues mean less intervention from the GUAG and less freedom for every being respectively, YHVH is angry that a lawful organization refuses to cooperate with Him and Nekron is pissed that the entire universe is one step farther from destruction just by extermination of Sues.
    • Of course, when there's allies there's also enemies as well. Enemies that threaten The Multiverse like Barbatos, the Anti-Monitor and Lord Fuse are on their shitlist since they can potentially screw over the plot continuum if left unchecked, and the same goes for crossover villains like Galeem, Dharkon, Tabuu and Polygon Man with Galeem and Dharkon nearly destroying the Pantheons since their arrivals. They have better opinions on Master and Crazy Hand, though their ideas of maintaining order in the place clashed a lot with the Protectors quite often; Crazy Hand finds it a shame that he'll never be friends with some of the PPC's chaotic members because of this.
    • They hate BEN for not only his usual threat but spawning endless terrible OCs that serve to fulfill every horror fangirl's wet dream which some are trying to intrude into the Pantheons. Surprisingly, even BEN agrees he doesn't like his Fangirls too much.
    • Rick Sanchez and his grandson, Morty Smith often intervene in their missions. He does more harm than good since he's not there to kill Sues, he's there for getting materials for his experiments. Rick mostly doesn't care for them while Morty tries to at least smoothen their relations... well, emphasis on "tried".
      Rick: Come on, Morty! I don't have time for their 'kill all Sues' bullshit. That's on them! *burps*
    • Because of her potential to disrupt all of space-time and the plot continuum, Haruhi Suzumiya is currently being surveyed by the PPC to prevent that. Kyon almost feel like it's a violation of privacy for him and the others, even though it's still necessary to keep her unaware of the Pantheons' true nature.
  • Malal was tasked to keep the Disgraces from coming back by keeping them in Retconnian. He threatens time and time again that he'll do anything to become canon again, which is why he has a rocky partnership with the PPC. On the topic of the Disgraces, it seems that Ryotaro Nogami and Rintarou Okabe were also aware that the Disgraces once existed due to being a Singularity Point and having Ripple Effect-Proof Memory respectively; thus they cannot be affected by continuity changes, both space-time and plot-wise. Because of this, the two became liasons of the PPC to not let word get out of the Disgraces' former existence (not that they want to anyway).
  • Being from a metafictional story, the PPC allied themselves with Rika Furude and Ahiru and made enemies in Bernkastel and D.D. Drosselmeyer; Ahiru knows about story conventions since her previous adventure and Rika joins them just to have a chance against Bernkastel who violated norms of stories to give readers crises about what they love. Drosselmeyer abuses his characters and even his son just to make his story interesting which normally the PPC gloss over but can't this time because he has bent enough fictional laws to do so. Lambdadelta might not be a helpful ally to the PPC, because she would rather see them getting hilariously hurt by Bernkastel instead though she will help if Bernkastel's Trolling did go too far.
    • Meteora Osterreich provides a lot of help to the PPC, giving out exposition to them as per her original purpose. Altair nearly destroyed the real world of her universe in order to avenge her Creator, which makes her as guilty as the other villains they have faced before; even more so that she admitted to not even regret her actions towards the world.
    • Deadpool prioritizes doing whatever he wants over helping the PPC, though how much he's helping them depends on his mood. His other mates in the fourth-wall-breaking biz, Pinkie Pie and Peacock have better chances in providing cooperation; Peacock understands their situation fully since... well, she'll reference anything and Pinkie finds the Sues absolutely no fun since who would wanna like a perfectly perfect person?
  • The Protectors once had a procedure where they feed Mary Sues to Cthulhu in order to dispose of them forever, but the practice stopped once he became too full to eat them. Nowadays, Cthulhu doesn't want to eat anymore Sues not just because he doesn't want to be full, but also because the Sues left a lot of bad tastes in his mouth.
  • There has been numerous reports of gag manga characters being more powerful and bring more destruction than any other character, which led them to Popuko & Pipimi. Despite giving them warnings, the agents sent to do so got smacked hard the moment one of them said "subculture bitch"; they still admit they would give Sues a beating should they cross the girls' paths. The artist ZONE also got warnings from the PPC that her characterizations of other characters will bring in unnecessary OOC duplicates of ascended deities that can potentially swarm the Pantheons and cause endless chaos. She ignores them, forcing the PPC to prepare themselves for this hypothetical situation.
  • Surprisingly, they hold nothing against Shiroe, Akatsuki nor their creator despite said creator approving and implementing OCs into the Log Horizon canon. They reason that since they are rounded enough to be good characters, they are good in the PPC's book.
  • Also part of the Pantheon Protectors.

Greater Gods

    Ryu Hayabusa 
Ryu Hayabusa, God of Ninjutsu (Dragon, Wielder of the Dark Dragon Blade, The Ultimate Dragon Ninja)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Hayabusa_DOA_6268.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A falcon
  • Theme Song: Ryu's Determination, alternatively The Shooted, or The Dead or Alive Dimensions Mix.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Ninjas of the Visible Variant, Big Freaking Sword Wielders, Lock and Load Montages, Really Hard Games
  • Domains: Stealth, Knowledge, Darkness
  • High Priest: Joe Musashi
  • Followers: Storm Shadow, Raven, Sarutobi Sasuke, Fuma Kotaro
  • Allies: Irene Lew (his wife), Kasumi, Ayane, Bang Shishigami, Taki, Naruto Uzumaki, Raiden (Metal Gear), Jann Lee, Elliot, Kokoro, Sol Badguy, Strider Hiryu, The Kinkou Order, Snake-Eyes, Yoshimitsu, Lady.
  • Rival: Jack Sparrow, The Marked Ninja
  • Engaged in an eternal battle with Jack Sparrow to determine which is greater once and for all… Pirates or Ninjas. Followed by the chosen ones of Naruto and the Ninja Turtles.
  • At first, dislikes Bang Shishigami for being so highly visible, but surprisingly met an intelligent rebuke by Bang himself. Hayabusa grudgingly accepts the harsh truth that he might be not so invisible after all, but retains the position on the basis that at least he still tries to act like a proper ninja sometimes.
  • Part of the Pantheon Ninja Shi-Tennou alongside Bang, Schwarz Bruder and Naruto Uzumaki. Hayabusa is seen as the unofficial leader on basis of Pantheon seniority.
  • Has recently been spotted fighting alongside historical warriors from Three Kingdoms and Warring States. Despite being the God of Ninjutsu and Ninjas everywhere, Hayabusa stays humble and considers it an honor to fight alongside some ancient ninjas like Hattori Hanzo.
  • The relatively lackluster reception of his newest game has called into question what his god level should be. However, he retains his power thanks to the efforts in the past that is still permeated throughout the ages. At least, it gave him some new 'bond' with Samus Aran, who struggled through similar ordeal. Though he has since attempted to make up for the blunder via the event christened "Razor's Edge"
  • In other regions of the world, his teachings were spread by what he would refer as his greatest high priest: Joe Musashi.
  • Has faced one of his followers, Strider Hiryu, in a clash for who is the better ninja. Despite being a close battle, Hiryu's blade was able to cut through most of Ryu's weapons, and ultimately triumphed. Ryu's only was response was to congratulate Hiyru for his victory.
  • One critic suggested that the Marked Ninja should at least have a place here, if not as the High Priest or even the God of Ninjutsu himself, given that he's faithful to real-life ninja protocol (moreso than even Ryu Hayabusa) instead of what popular culture has painted them as. Ryu has considered it, praising that Marked Ninja could have been a more 'accurate' ninja than himself, although the waves of 'nostalgia' empowering Hayabusa is something beyond his control.
    • Right now, some of his followers are at work on ascending the Marked Ninja to a position of his own: The God of Real Life Ninjutsu. They do respect his faithfulness, but are not about to let Hayabusa's position be compromised.
      • The mission was a success, though it's as God of Realistic Ninjas, found in the same house.
    • There's also the statement that stealth will work wonders against human enemies. But for someone like Hayabusa who constantly fought demons and fiends who more likely had superhuman senses and would spot stealth in a second? Maybe he wouldn't have the luxury to keep up the image of stealthy ninjas and had to resort to another tenet of a ninja: They'll do anything to secure victory, including eschewing some honors (of course, Hayabusa does have lines he won't cross), so appearing on a daylight is an option for him.
  • Reunited with Irene Lew following her ascension to the Pantheon. Those who wished to see Hayabusa with Kasumi were floored upon finding out that Hayabusa was a married man.

Intermediate Gods

Dante, God of Demon Slaying (The Son of Sparda, Dante Sparda, Tony Redgrave, The Legendary Demon Hunter)

  • Intermediate God (Greater God in Devil Trigger, Overdeity in Shin Majin/Sin Devil Trigger form)
  • Symbol: Rebellion with Ebony and Ivory crossed over the quillions.
  • Theme Song: Devils Never Cry, Subhuman, alternatively the MVC3 arrangement or the HR edition.

  • Followers: Allen Walker, Ryo, Shauna Vayne, Sango
  • Complicated Relationship with: Vergil (his brother)
  • Allies
  • Respects: Shadow the Hedgehog, Taki, Ryuko Matoi and Senketsu
  • Rivals: Raiden (Metal Gear), Kratos
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Demitri Maximoff, Alucard
  • Worthy Opponent: Torin/Kyoryu Silver, Deadpool

  • The Anti-Hero Half-Human Hybrid Demon Slayer son of an Ascended Demon named Sparda and a human named Eva who might have been a powerful witch. After losing his mother to demons as a child, Dante grew up to become a demon-hunting mercenary who runs his own devil-hunting business named Devil May Cry. Being half-demon, Dante has Super Strength, Nigh-Invulnerability and a Healing Factor, along with the ability to transform into a demonic Super Mode called Devil Trigger. His weapons of choice are two custom handguns known as Ebony and Ivory, and a memento broadsword of his father's named Rebellion which he later fused with Sparda's own Devil Arm Sparda/Force Edge to finally form his true Devil Sword Dante. While often cocky, deep down he is a compassionate man devoted to fighting for the good of humanity and helping his friends. Still, he does like getting paid for it.
  • Loves to visit the mortal realm to gorge himself on pizza. Has invited many of the "babes" in the various pantheons to come along, but so far has not managed to get a positive response (Some of them — mostly C.C. — might have said yes, had Trish not strenuously objected. With her guns).
  • Has found a good deal of common ground with Naoki Kashima, despite their very different attitudes. The two first met in combat, with "the kid" and his allies managing to fight Dante to a draw. After all that was squared away, Dante invited him out for pizza, his treat.
  • Made another fast friend in the dragonslayer Lina Inverse, who's about as ambitious as Vergil (which is a lot) but carries a chipper and flashy attitude similar to Dante himself. He even got her to be a guest member of a team of hunters that he joined along with Buffy, The Hunter from Yharnam, and Mana. Unfortunately, she got ahead of herself during a treasure hunt of some sort and has been lost for awhile.
  • Used to fight Kratos, but now they're so busy they only have time for the occasional impalement, so they've had to mostly settle for constant one-upsmanship in their adventures. The battles tend to spike up in intermissions between campaigns…
    • Then there's also fellow Stylish Action hero Bayonetta, though Dante seems more fond of her. Maybe because they share similar styles. Or maybe because he likes hot girls that can kick ass like her.
  • There's been someone who's taking the name 'Dante' but has black hair, looks emo and likes smoking. Dante was not amused.
    • Over time, Dante had since grown a bedgrudging respect for the so-called 'Donte' (as he coined before), because if they take away the things surrounding his big name, this guy was actually a slick combatant on his own with his own style. As a result, he's decided to instead call him Tim.
    • Dante was invited to compete in Polygon Man's Battle Royale, but he was too busy with his godly duties, so he asked Tim to cover for him. This did not go down well.
      • He did get a bit of a laugh when Heihachi Mishima sent him flying into the sky though.
  • More or less replies to Vergil's ascension with "So when's the next reunion party again?"
    • For the record, said "reunion party" could easily involve them either fighting against each other or working together depending on the circumstances. He's cool either way. They're moreso on the same page these days thanks to their counterparts' friend Kat, who Dante looks out for, partially out of sympathy and partially as a favor to Tim just in case the guy ascends. As for Vergil, well, Dante figures he has his own reasons.
    • For some reason he's decided to call Vergil's alternate David. When asked why, he reply is "That guy's just a little too much of a rat for my brother's taste, y'know?" When said brother got to finally see firsthand how far he himself could fall in his pursuit of power, he wound up calling Vergin "Urizen" to serve as his reminder. While gladly teasing Vergil about this, Dante decided to go with it.
  • Contrary to popular rumor, the name of Sparda has never actually been Dante's last name. He and Vergil just allow others to use it as such as a nod to their father and as a way to separate them from the Comedìa poets Sparda named them each after.
    • Met the poet Dante when he broke up a fight between Alighieri and Vergil shortly after Alighieri's ascension. He admires the fact that Alighieri knows how to go badass when it's time to kill demons and monsters, even if he thinks the guy could be a bit less stuffy and uptight in general about things.
    • When the body-surfing alchemist Dante ascended, however, the Son of Sparda had no respect for her, claiming that no matter how young and appealing the form she steals she will always give herself away a bitter, ugly, old hag.
  • Recently went on an adventure with the other Gods in order to stop the merging of worlds.
  • Gets a bit ticked off when people accidentally mistake him for Ken Masters, Sephiroth, Torin or Date Masamune. It's probably because they sound similar. Otherwise he's cool with all of them save Sephiroth.
  • Befriended the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles over their shared love of pizza. However, they are careful to ensure that there is an equal amount of slices for the five of them. One time, there wasn't enough to go around, and the fight for the last slice resulted in the near destruction of the House of Food. It took three weeks to put things back the way they were.
  • Also mentioning that one time he was about to "fill Trish's dark soul with LIIIIIIIGGGGHHHTTT!!!" is going to erect a Face Palm from Dante as he tells the speaker to never mention it again. It was too cheesy even for his standards.
  • Despite his fondness for Bayonetta, he's not exactly a huge fan of her father Balder, given the man's alliances with various demon lords despite being a Lumen Sage. However, he doesn't seem too surprised about this. His reply when he's asked why?
    • And then Jubileus and Queen Sheba were brought to the Pantheon. He's expecting to learn what it's like soon battling the angels too.
  • Polygon Man has recently started to abduct those who did not compete in his Battle Royale and forcing them to compete in Round 2, with Sora and Lightning being his first targets. Because Dante was invited to the first competition, but sent Tim in his stead, Riku has warned Dante that he could be a potential target of Polygon Man, and to keep an eye open for him.
    • He was right, as Polygon Man sent Caius Ballad to capture Dante, burning down his temple in the process, and got Master Xehanort to recreate a corrupted version of Tim out of Dante's darkness (in a matter similar to Vanitas' creation). Dante was rescued by Raiden and would get payback on Caius by sending him the repair bill for his temple.
  • Some time after the clash between Ragna the Bloodedge vs. Sol Badguy, Dante was sent to an unknown laboratory to investigate something, and dispose of it. It turned out to be some white-coated clone of Ragna and several Hakumen clones of unknown origin, the latter of which were all destroyed by said copy. Dante tried to kill it, but the clone Ragna managed to defeat Dante in precisely one minute, after which no one is sure what happened to the clone Ragna.
  • Was scheduled for a Death Battle against Bayonetta. For the first time in Death Battle history, their allies Trish and Jeanne invited themselves in and assisted their partners before eventually splitting off to clash with one another. Ultimately, Dante proved to be the superior one, slaying Madama Butterfly and skewering the Umbra Witch with multiple swords before blowing her up.
    • While Dante was victorious in his challenge, he soon discovered that Trish was cut down by Jeanne in the side battle. Wiz and Boomstick explained to him that they'd planned to place him in another realm where Kat could travel to and rescue him if he lost, so maybe Trish could be found there. Kat guided him into and through Limbo like she had with 'Tim' before. Indeed, they found Trish's soul and got her out of there, before taking her to the House of Life and Death in order to restore her body.
  • As of late, Dante has noticed that Sailor Mercury and Lady sound similar. What's strange is that he swears that this wasn't the case before.
  • Has been hired to help Kimihito Kurusu and protect the Monster Girls from potential troubles. While at first he was hesitant and wanted everyone to believe it was only for the payment, Dante eventually warmed up to them and made friends with both Kimihito himself and with all of the girls. Likewise, at first the Monster Girls were scared and untrustful towards the demon slayer, but soon enough befriended him and came to accept his demonic heritage after seeing his good side as he helped them several times (being the son of the Legendary Dark Knight Sparda probably helped). Nowadays he hangs around them, shares a place over dinner and helps out whenever needed, though he refuses to partake in any of the more humiliating tasks.
    • Feels mutually uneasy around Rachnera, Suu and Lala due to them reminding him of some of his past enemies, though eventually they learned to respect each other and are on good terms. Meroune Lorelei and Centorea Shianus feel sympathy towards Dante due to having a tragic past and for Centorea due to being a fellow Half-Human Hybrid. The latter also challenged Dante to a duel, but was quickly defeated effortlesly without being harmed at all. Dante told Cerea his demon blood gives him an unfair advantage, but assures he will never hurt her due to being a friend and making a promise he will protect them. While a bit ashamed and envious, Centorea values Dante as an ally, a fellow non-human and a superior swordsman even to this day.
    • Out of all the girls Miia seems to be treating him the best (possibly due to being a red-skinned, yellow-eyed reptillian humanoid in his Devil Trigger form), something which has earned her the half-devil's friendship. However she also acts slightly weird and shy, making everyone think she has feelings of attraction towards Dante. Miia obviously denies this and says she will never cheat on her Darling. Despite this, all the Gods and Goddesses have seen that she is happier when Dante is around her and sadder when he is away on his demon-hunting duties.
  • After recently getting involved with a group of Capcom and Marvel heroes to stop a merging-of-worlds plot involving various villainous sides, Dante encountered Blade while trying to undo any remnant traces of the residue from this plan so that no demon lords could take advantage of any opening. He got a kick out of Blade talking like a black New Yorker despite being from England, asking who the Daywalker picked it up from.
  • Was present when Maya summoned the Hunter Squad to her temple to accept Buffy's offer to join them, proposing that they in turn become the new Night Hand to replace her original order which had been slaughtered. The group agreed to this. When she later suggested to possibly bring in Blade, Dante backed her up fully and even went with her to recruit the black vampire; Blade accepted on a part-time basis just like Lina did before. Trish doesn't seem to like Maya very much, but he's not worried.
  • A few years following the job in Fortuna, Dante stepped back into the fray to confront the threat of an evil World Tree as well as an antagonist who stole Nero's devil arm. The antagonist? Vergil himself. Dante was encountered by V, the decaying human half of Vergil, after Vergil had ripped off Nero's arm and then cast his two halves into separate beings in order to heal from an intense state of corrosion, asking him to help stop the demon half, which V called Urizen. However, once Dante finally did beat Urizen after several attempts by both him and Nero, V plunged the Yamato into Urizen to merge back into Vergil and Dante decided he had to be stopped. Between Dante finally telling both Nero and Vergil that Vergil was in fact Nero's father, Nero intervening to stop them both from killing each other, Vergil's new perspective on his humanity, his honor, and his power through the eyes of V, and Dante explaining that Eva got killed looking for Vergil rather than abandoning him to die like he'd believed for decades, the two set aside their differences and entered the demon world to both cut down the demonic Qliphoth tree as well as spar with each other for at least a few weeks, finally seeing somewhat eye to eye as true brothers again.
    • Sometime after returning to the Pantheon with Vergil, Dante found himself, Nero, and the newly ascended Nico ambushed and kidnapped by a set of demons known as The Fiends, who wanted to harvest them for the power of their bloodlines. To everyone's surprise, it was Vergil who ambushed The Fiends right back in order to rescue his kin. The ensuing ride in Nico's van was awkwardly silent, as the brothers are still competitive with each other and Nico is the granddaughter of Dante's old gunsmith who Vergil had killed years ago, but Vergil didn't carry any air of malice about him before they dropped him off at the House in which his temple is located.

    The Dovahkiin 
Dovahkiin, God of Dragonslaying (The Last Dragonborn, The One They Fear)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dovakhiin_7544.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A silver dragon emblem
  • Theme Song: Dragonborn
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Shouting, Action Survivors, Chosen Ones, Inspiring Fear in Dragons, One-Man Armies, Soul Absorption, Dragon Riding
  • Domains: Dragons, Magic, Fighting
  • Followers: Dragonhunters of Tyria
  • Allies: Paarthurnax, Bahamut, Spyro, Lady Amalthea, The Monster Hunters
  • Rivals: Natsu Dragneel, Caim, The New Kid
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: The Puella Magi, the Elric Brothers
  • Enemies: Nearly any dragon out there, Alduin, Seto Kaiba, Godzilla (He thought it was a dragon), The Ebon Dragon, Ornstein and Smough, the Colossi, Johan Liebert, Ridley
  • While Dovahkiin's appearance (along with alignment and personality) is often different, his/her more frequently seen look is a male Nord with brown hair and a short beard, wearing an Iron Helmet, Studded Armor, Iron Gauntlets, and Iron Boots.
  • Once went to the House of Music and got challanged to do a rap. So he did. These, three, songs are what he sang.
  • Many gods have learned not to make any "arrow to the knee"-jokes in his presence, unless they want to have both of their knees impaled and be blown through a wall. They tend to be one of his biggest Berserk Buttons.
  • Though there are many members of the pantheon who has a history of killing dragons, not many of them actually knows their language (that can be used for powerfull spells) or even knows how to kill them permanently, since some dragons can return from the dead. That is where Dovahkiin comes in. Because of the fact that any dragon that dies in his presence will have their soul drained by him, thus adding to his power, has made him feared amongst nearly any dragon. Even a few dragon gods fear him.
  • He made himself an enemy of Seto Kaiba ever since the day he destroyed his Blue Eyes White Dragon-shaped jet by shouting it apart.
  • He's not sure what to think of Bowser since he can't understand if he is a dragon or an overweight Argonian who happens to be able to breath fire. Nobody has seemed to tell him the answer for some reason.
  • Since he's known for killing Dragons permanently, Daenerys Targaryen has made a point of not fighting with or pissing him off. Viserys, however, lacked such wisdom, or even a dragon to fight with...
  • Is on relatively good terms with Bahamut, Bahamut explaining he isn't evil and the Dovahkiin pointing to his history with Paarthunax in his home universe as proof that he doesn't kill good dragons. Some reports say Bahamut taught him a Thu'um to summon him for aid if the Dovahkiin should be overwhelmed in battle, but considering his levels of power, it is unknown if this will ever be proven.
  • Despite showing prowess on par with a Lesser or even an Intermediate God, he has no wish to ascend beyond demigod status, as being partially mortal is the key to his Dragonrend shout, which cripples any dragon it hits.
  • After finding out that Mehrunes Dagon, perpetrator of the Oblivion Crisis, is apparently a powerful daemon affiliated with Tzeentch, the Dovahkiin has expressed hatred towards the God of Chaos, as Dagon's downfall resulted in the resurgence of the Nazi-like Aldmeri Dominion in the land of Tamriel (a series of events which was most likely planned by Tzeentch). However, the Dovahkiin has been rumored to wield Mehrunes' Razor, Dagon's powerful dagger that has a small chance of killing anything it cuts, so he may not be enemies with Tzeentch after all...
  • He has an intense hatred towards bears, claiming that they are stronger than a good number of the dragons he has slain. And don't even get him started on Giants. He has had some bad experiences with them to say the least.
  • The Puellae Magi are rather uneasy around him, mostly because his Item Crafting involves the destruction of Soul Gems. As such, whenever the Dovahkiin is taking quests from Madoka, he and any Puellae Magi involved have Teeth-Clenched Teamwork at best.
  • Despite being both dragonslayers, Dovahkiin does not exactly get along well with Ornstein and Smough, partly because the fanbases of the games they come from aren't on really good terms. He also dislikes the fact that Ornstein hunts dragons for sport and definitely does not approve of him obsessively hunting down Hyodo Issei.
    • Issei is instinctively afraid of him due to his nature as a dragon slayer, which is understandable given Issei's second death due to Samael's curse. Bahamut does reassure him that he would not attack allies though as long as Issei doesn't make any references to arrows and knees. Humerously, deep down the Dovahkiin is actually wary of Issei: the dragons he fights may be destructive, but still capable of being killed with iron blades and bows and arrows, while Issei at full power is quite a bit above their level. He's not even sure his coveted Dragonrend would work: ultimately, only Issei's body is that of a Dragon, while his soul is demonic or human, making him well capable of comprehending Mortality, Finality, and something being Temporary. Nonetheless, many have positively compared Issei to Dovahkiin as they're both equally badassnote .
  • After a little fiasco involving the first Dragonborn and a deal with Hermaeus Mora, the Dovahkiin gained the power of a Compelling Voice; when used on a dragon, it is forced to become his servant and steed. This has made his lethality on the battlefield increase tenfold; all beings, dragon or not, now have more reason to fear him.
  • Annie Leonhart and Eren Jaeger are amongst the few deities who he fears to fight without the aid of a dragon. The reason for this is because they are shown to be FAR worse than any of the giants inhabiting Skyrim.
  • Horses and other steeds gain the odd ability to defy physics whenever he seats himself upon one. Some gods have begun to wonder what would happen if he used Derpy Hooves as a mount for one day.
  • May or may not have a mortal avatar in the form of The New Kid.
    • This was debuked when it became clear the the New Kid and Dovahkiin, while both were technically Chosen Ones in their stories, they both have very different backstories and abilities. Neither of them were bothered by this though and have since taken up being rivals in the art of combat.
  • Dovahkiin and Spyro became friends after Hermaeus Mora tricked Dovahkiin into trying to attack Spyro. The two plan to attack Hermaeus Mora in retaliation, but before then Dovahkiin wants Spyro to teach him the Words of Power for the Superflame shout.
  • After spending some time in the House of Sports, he picked up a few wrestling moves.
  • Dovahkiin is also mortal enemies with the man known as Johan Liebert; not because he's a monstrous sociopath (though that doesn't help matters), but his voice hearkens back to a rather obnoxious individual back in the mortal realm.

    Eredin Bréacc Glas, King of the Wild Hunt 
Eredin Bréacc Glas, Unholy King of The Wild Hunt (King of the Wild Hunt, Sparrowhawk)

  • Opposes: The God Emperor of Mankind, The Wild Hunt (Akame ga Kill)
  • Opposed by: Every human in the Pantheon, good or evil, Merrill, Lor'themar Theron, Varsuuvius, Lady Amalthea, Princesses Celestia and Luna
  • Fears: Harry Dresden
  • In Pursuit of: Ciri
  • Comflicting Opinion: The Warden and the Inquisitor
  • It was a day Geralt had feared ever since he and Ciri set foot in the Pantheon, even though he knew it would happen eventually. The signs were happening all the same; first sightings of spectral emanations were forming throughout the Pantheon. Then there were the random killings of followers. All of that accumulated into that faithful day when the temperature dropped rapidly. The day when he heard the rumbling of horses signalling the arrival of undead wraiths. That was the day Eredin Bréacc Glas had returned, ready to enact his revenge upon Geralt.
    • The Witcher immediately amassed a great number of his allies shortly afterwards to confront the threat. What followed was a brutal brawl between his forces and that of The Wild Hunt. The fighting was fierce and ferocious. Just when Geralt was about to be slain, reinforcements from the GUAG as well as that of the Emperor of Mankind were able to contain the threat. Not used to such a powerful army, Eredin retreated to a new location. Fortunately for him, he gained a large enough following to stay within the Pantheon.
    • Ciri was understandably furious as well as a little shaken about the return of her persistent foe. This is a group that has pursued her through countless worlds, killing everyone she had loved before finding Geralt. She does not want the same thing to happen to any of her friends she has met in the Pantheon. The thought that she was even in love with the conqueror at some point in her life disgusts her even more. At least now she has Geralt, Yennefer and Triss at her side as well.
  • The Wild Hunt is merely a nickname of their group. As a matter of fact, Eredin leads an elven kingdom called Aen Elle. At the height of their power, they were capable of capturing large swaths of the multiverse, killing an enslaving those who came against them. The group heard that Ciri was the key to stop the White Frost, the one thing that could put a halt to their plans. As a result, they hunted her down through countless universes. Nowadays, they aren't quite up to full strength. Still, Eredin has a formidable arm that can give many deities trouble.
    • The group is among the most frightening armies in the Pantheon... but they are neither wraiths nor undead. They merely wear bone-like armor to install fear into their victims. It helps that up to Geralt's last stand they seemed to be an invincible army.
    • The reveal that the Wild Hunt were elves was one of the biggest black eyes that the God of High Elves endured during his time. The fact that he was their patron during their reign of destruction did not sit well with him. He revoked their membership, but by then the damage was done. Now that the Wild Hunt has ascended, Lor'themar swears to put an end to their march. Other elven deities have supported him in their opposition.
  • Impressed with the dark elf's tenacity against the Norse Gods, Eredin applied the high priest status to Malekith. While he only invoked the Wild Hunt a couple of times, he remains a constant threat to the ten realms. Predictably, this has caused the ire of Thor as well as the other Norse Gods. They too are familiar with the Wild Hunt in their mythology, but the inclusion of Malekith to their ranks was an insult to injury.
  • One of their main targets has been human enclaves, a fact that enrages the God Emperor of Mankind. Eredin confirms this is intentional; the mere fact that humans are the majority of high beings they face is an affront to the group. As such, the Wild Hunt tends to deliver the most suffering to humans. It's little wonder that no sane human want anything to do with them.
  • Humans aren't the only species concerned with his ascension. The unicorn deities are well aware of the stories of the vast number of their kin who were either slaughtered or enslaved in their name. The two unicorn deities set out to save any of their followers from the invading army. However, the unicorn deities consolidated their forces with Geralt's in direct battles.
  • This is not to say he is below making any alliances. When Darkseid entered via Boom Tube, Eredin decided to hear what he had to say. The subsequent conversation was positive for both sides. Darkseid did not care what race delivered the dystopia, only that one carries it out and he was impressed with all the worlds the Wild Hunt has conquered. Eredin was fully capable of transportation through dimensions, but Darkseid's technology certainly makes things easier for him.
  • One of the few fantasy figures to embrace their conquest, Sauron delighted on the Wild Hunt. The Evil Overlord always makes himself elven in appearance in order to appease the Aen Elle. It's a tiny tradeoff for the chance to finally rid of Gandalf of his Fellowship.
  • Was not pleased that some humans have started to take up the form for themselves, even if they were every bit as tyrannical as he was. Altria Pendragon Alter Lancer has taken several elements of The Wild Hunt into her own ruthless reign. Eredin tried to confront her, but was defeated in single combat. His army was forced to concede that the two would have to coexist for the time being.
    • It turns out the Aen Belle were not even the first beings in the Pantheon to call themselves the Wild Hunt. That group is Syura's band of psychopathic mercenaries. Enraged at that prospect, Eredin invaded their temple in order to bring them low. Syura's crew may be Chaotic Evil, but they showed a great deal of teamwork to drive off the captures. The two groups have fought on many occasions afterwards, mostly because few people care who would come out victorious as long as one group bites it for good.
  • Rivals in any other sense, the deities from Thedas were willing to set their difference aside to take on this new threat. Eredin holds Hawke to great disdain as well as that world's treatment of elves, but was intrigued that the Warden and Inquisitor could be an elf themselves. With the right attitude, the elf might even be persuaded to join his side. That hasn't happened thus far with the two siding with Geralt for the time being.
    • Merrill was displeased with the Wild Hunt's wanton destruction and has thoroughly rejected the group as well. Instead of convincing her, the Wild Hunt seeks to capture her and manipulate her to use the full extent of her blood magic.
  • Much of the fantasy world was on high alert with his ascension. Long-heald rivalries between the factions are set aside when dealing with the Wild Hunt. Even Raislin, a wizard who usually scoffs at working with the likes of Gandalf, felt pressured to pitch in to mobilize a defense to make sure the Wild Hunt are contained to their temple and nothing more.
  • There is another name besides Ciri and Geralt that gives him pause. The magician Harry Dresden encountered a version of the Wild Hunt and the results shocked him; Not only Dresden defeat the leaders, he also took over the Wild Hunt as his own. Whenever Harry shows up, Eredin is forced to retreat to safer ground. The Sparrowhawk will have to do more research to see if his group can taken on the magician.

    Heishiro Mitsurugi 
Heishiro Mitsurugi, God of Ronin (He Who Lives for Battle)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mitsurugivi_6.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His katana Muichimonji
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Badass Normal, Blood Knight, Duel to the Death, Katanas Are Just Better, Never Bring a Knife to a Gun Fight, Rated M for Manly, Samurai Ponytail, Walking the Earth
  • Domains: Combat, Katanas, War, Glory, Strength
  • High Priestess: Ran Tsukikage
  • Allies: Kenpachi Zaraki, Reiji Arisu and Xiaomu
  • Rivals: Miyamoto Musashi, Samural Jack, Afro Samurai, Himura Kenshin, Haohmaru, Ryu Hayabusa, Sanjūrō, Geralt of Rivia.
  • Opposes: All gun users in the House of Ranged Weapons
  • Opposed by: All pacifist deities
  • Respects: Samuel Rodrigues
  • Worthy Opponents: Taki, Nightmare, Algol
  • A lone figure with a samurai sword slowly made his way into the House of Professions. Once he entered his new temple, the man gave out an boast: he will roam the entire Pantheon, seeking out fighters that can give him a challenge.
    • His initial journey came to an end when he was faced with Taki, his arch nemesis. The two fought to a draw once more, with Taki telling him continuing one will eventually get him in trouble. Mitsurugi relented, but decided to hold up a sign his temple challenging others to face him in combat.
    • As a result of his long feud with Taki, he has grown distaste for ninjas in general. He usually puts out all of that anger at their patron Ryu. He hopes to strike him down in order to weapon Taki's forces.
    • Surprisingly enough, there is currently no official god of Samurai. Mitsurugi himself doesn't qualify as he works as more of a mercenary. Thus he holds the title of Ronin
  • Has become a Blood Knight like no other, offering up his services in the House of War whenever they need a warrior to send to battle. He even prefers to side with the outnumbered forces just to give him a challenge. Kenpachi regards Mitsurugi as one of his most promising practitioners of his philosophy. Those who challenge him end up in a fight to the death. Mitsurugi wouldn't have it any other way.... except for Setsuka apparently. When asked why he spared her, he shrugged his shoulders before stating even he has his exceptions.
  • His ascension was not taken lightly to the Azure Knight. A long known irritant of his, he knows that Mitsurugi would eventually want to challenge him. Either way, he hopes to use him as a potential asset, possibly corrupting him or even using him as his next host.
  • Has made a rival in none other than Algol himself. The most powerful deity in his world, the ronin believes he will receive the ultimate battle if he gets the chance to face him. The God of Shape Shifting Weapons raised an eyebrow in the man's insistence to fight him, but is willing to unleash his power on the ronin in a future date.
    • He has more recently made yet another rival, in the White Wolf himself, Geralt of Rivia, after Geralt wound up entangled in the battle between the two swords. After an initial encounter that went poorly for the samurai, he pursued his new rival relentlessly, aiming for a rematch. Although he did get to fight against Geralt again just before he travelled back to his own world, the witcher did find Mitsurugis' skills with a blade impressive, and even commented that the samurai would have made a good witcher in his world.
  • He sees all samurai as rivals to eventually defeat. Not even Miyamoto Musashi, his possible inspiration, is exempt. Good or evil, he just hopes to be the best fighter with a Katana.
    • His rivalry with Kenshin has a special note. As a Technical Pacifist, Kenshin holds a special sort of contempt for the ronin, reminding him too much of his old self. Mitsurugi hopes to get him to use a more deadly katana should they cross paths, a request that Kenshin has consistently rejected.
    • Also of note is his rivalry with Haohmaru. The God of Anime Hair had long sought the title Mitsurugi currently has. Also of note is the fact that they match perfectly, in personality and in looks. It's only intensified their constant battles. The two ronin have constantly fought to a draw so far.
    • There have been a growing number of pacifistic deities that have stood up to oppose him. They have been responsible for interrupting many of his duels before they come to their logical conclusion. Mitsurugi has to be more discreet in where he can challenge foes.
  • The one katana user he decided to pay homage to be Samuel Rodrigues, God of Katanas. A former follower of the half-Brazilian, he had made constant attempts to claim the title himself, failing each time. Mitsurugi eventually relented, gaining enough respect of the man to admit defeat.
  • Hates guns with a passion. It took him many years to learn how to deal with Western rifles used to invade Japan. Nowadays, he's comfortable handling anyone with a bullet. That doesn't make things any less pleasing to fight against.
  • As a matter of fact, Mitsurugi does remember the faces of many deities in the Pantheon. This is due to participating in an incidence bringing him any many others to Japan in the year 20XX. To his surprise, he also found the two people who helped team up everyone to fight a coalition of villains. For that challenge, he thanks the two for the battle.

    Hidden Phantom 
Hidden Phantom, God of Futuristic Ninjas (Guardian of the Cutting Shadow, Model P, Hidden General Phantom)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/MMZ_Phantom_9342.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His Biometal, Model PX

  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Literal Cyber Ninja, The Most Loyal Guardian, Willing to Die to Stop Zero, Cool Mask, Honorable Foe Working For The Main Villain, Bonus Boss, My Master, Right or Wrong, Ninja Run, Always Calm, Cool Scarf, Dark Is Not Evil, Praetorian Guard, Shurikens
  • Domains: Enforcers, Ninjas, Androids, Cyberspace
  • Heralds: Hanumachine, Hyleg Ourobockle, Burble Hekelot, Tech Kraken
  • Unapproved High Priest: Sianarq
  • Followers: Cyborg Ninja, Ryo Murasame
  • Superior: X (robotic father/true master)
  • Allies
  • Conflicted on: Copy X, "Jetstream" Sam Rodrigues
  • Enemies: Dr. Weil, Omega, Elpizo, Dr. Wily, Prometheus and Pandora, Sentinel, Sektor, Hexxus, The Master Control Program, Ultron, Deathwing, The Grox, Gohma Vlitra, Monsoon, Sombra, The Infested, The Corpus
  • Opposes: Rotom, those that would harm humans
  • Like the other Four Guardians, Hidden Phantom was created from Mega Man X's DNA, serving as both a military general for Neo Arcadia and protector of their master/creator. Specializing in intelligence and ninja-style sleight of hand as the head of the Zan'ei Army, otherwise called the Cutting Shadow Squadron or the Slashing Shadow Corps, Phantom epitomized the loyalty and dedication of his "father", serving with Undying Loyalty to his country and master. When Zero bested him and tried to go after his current lord, Copy X, the Reploid self-destructed to take out Zero. Though it failed, the Pantheon was impressed by his dedication and allowed him membership.
    • As a fellow guardian, Phantom gets along with Delta the Big Daddy.
  • Death was not the end for him. When his body was destroyed, his spirit persisted in Cyberspace. There, he would test Zero's strength, to see if he'd be ready to fight Omega. In the Pantheon, he helps guard Cyberspace. He often gets frustrated with Rotom, who keeps messing with his domain for his amusement. Phantom usually gets the last laugh due to lacking the Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors of his siblings.
  • Was heavily displeased to learn that his Biometal avatar had been utilized by Sianarq, a psychotic, nearly emotionless servant contributing to the master plan of Dr. Weil, Neo Arcadia and humanity's greatest enemy.
  • With the events of Mega Man Zero 3, his relationship with Copy X is…conflicted. He has sworn loyalty to him, and Copy X does still wish to better Neo Arcadia. However the replica of X committed a great atrocity via missile strike, and became the Unwitting Pawn of Dr. Weil. He is trying to act as a conscience for Copy X, hoping his master will see the light.
    • Due to this loyalty, the GUAE is hoping to turn Phantom into a Token Good Teammate. On the other hand, the GUAG wants to make him a Reverse Mole. Phantom's true loyalties lie in Eiki Shiki, as he agrees with her revision of a reformed GUAL.
  • Gets along with the other good ninjas in the Pantheon such as Shikamaru Nara and Tsubaki Nakatsukasu; he's really good friends with fellow Cyber Ninja Raiden for protecting the weak. On the other side, he considers Sektor an affront to both ninjas and advanced tech.
    • He also was impressed with Samuel Rodrigues, though wishes Jetstream Sam would work with more savory fellows than the Winds of Destruction. Especially after they started coming after some of his new teammates (more on that below). Monsoon, another Cyber Ninja of sorts, is a member of that team who he likens to Sianarq…if Sianarq was loud. He's easily Phantom's least favorite Desperado cyborg.
  • Though not specifically designed for it, he wishes to protect the environment like his siblings. He's proven a great bane to the Grox, because of his ability to traverse cyberspace and hack into their software.
  • Harpuia has kept Phantom (as well as Fefnir) up to date periodically on a pro-Reploid advancement group he recently formed including Epsilon, Green Biker Dude and Neo Arcadia's Dr. Ciel. Per the plan of action, said group would turn into a full-on Robot Republic resistance against any Maverick machine deities' ambitions of empire. When approached about joining, Phantom held off to consult Eiki Shiki and X on the matter. Once both gave their approval of the group's aims, Phantom promptly joined, and was pleased to see Fefnir do the same; Labrys and Lambda-11 also joined in upon recommendation of Harpuia's ally Aigis.
    • While this was going on, the Maverick Hunters along with many other heroes were stopping Sigma and Ultron's plans of havoc in both the Marvel and Capcom worlds and the Pantheon. Following all that, the team finally went public under the name Liberion Arcadia. At that point Phantom consulted X, Alia, and Dr. Light to get as much information as he could on the Sigma Virus; Harpuia smiled upon noticing this, knowing that he's already preparing a strategy for the coming battle against Sigma and his allies.
    • With Harpuia leading the recommendation, Phantom and others approved bringing in the android 2B, who came seeking membership after claiming she had wanted to form something just like their group in the Pantheon until she discovered it already existed.
    • Phantom and the heralds from his squadron would also gather the intelligence necessary to pinpoint when potential candidates to join the team had made it to the Pantheon, enabling LA to quickly reach out to and successfully bring in Quote, Curly Brace, and ICEY. When he floated the possibility of recruiting Big Daddy, though, it wasn't so warmly received.
    • As Phantom knew would happen from overhearing her conversation with Epsilon and Harpuia shortly after getting in, 2B's inclusion later led to that of 9S, whose hacking skills have proved vital against some of LA's other adversaries. Phantom was the first to notice when 9S's performance began lagging, however, as the YoRHa hacker droid had been distracted with various issues; this eventually led to Labrys accompanying 9S and 2B into another world. Both 9S and 2B seem to act and think more clearly and efficiently since then.
  • The ultimate boon from all this, though, saw Leviathan finally join the rest of the Guardians in the Pantheon, as 9S's hacking got her case finally pushed forward. Trouble is, Sianarq, who was already counted as a "follower" to Phantom, became his temple's High Priest without his approval through the use of immortal Reploid data.

The Hunter, Patron Deity of Monster Hunters (The Good Hunter, You)

  • Distrusts: Ysera
  • It's been said that the Good Hunter had discovered one of the roads to the Pantheon's main gates while out on the Hunt. Normally these paths are Invisible to Normals unless they have been selected for ascension. The Hunter claims to have found this invisible path (among many other things), through something called "Insight".
  • In simple conversation, trying to narrow down a consistent history of this new god has been a fruitless endeavor. The same story is never said twice, the Hunter could have been anything from a military soldier to a complete waste of skin. The Hunter's story has even been that of a woman at times, though many deities use male pronouns just to keep it simple. Those who have straight out asked them if they're a man or a woman have only ever recieved the answer "I am a Hunter." Some others are sure, given the definite memories the Hunter has, that he no longer is sure of his own perceptions, even his own memories.
  • He finds his friendship with the Chosen Undead, the Bearer of the Curse and their High Priest the Demon Slayer a great one, since all four of them have fought similar enemies and bizarre creatures no one sane will ever take kindly.
  • Joined Buffy and Dante to create a faction of hunters of different fantastical creatures, also including Mana Tatsumiya and Lina Inverse (before she got lost looking for treasure).
    • Said faction has since become known as the Night Hand by the suggestion of one of its newest members, Maya Fallegeros.
  • Due to his experiences during his time in Yharnam, he's currently seeking for allies to aid him in his journey. His most prominent member is Solaire of Astora, a jolly co-operative. He feels like he's met someone like him before.
    • Though in alliance, the Hunter was given a look by Solaire when the Hunter made an off-hand remark about his stance on shields.
      • Though his travels to the Hunter's Nightmare gave him The Loch Shield, which can resist arcane attacks, and using it seems to have changed his stance on shields a bit.
  • Due to his time in Yharnam, he is very wary of Ysera.
  • Despite a very mortal origin in a world of death, the Good Hunter has stood in the presence of Cthulhu. To the creature's surprise, the Hunter showed no signs of madness and seemed to even comprehend his true form. The two parted without a word, though Cthulhu wishes to know just what sort of things the Hunter has seen.
  • Even when clean, the Hunter reeks of blood, and has been asked to give the House of Vampirism a wide berth. Many of the gods get a craving after catching a wiff of such a powerful scent, and those that give in to their hunger often end up in rather...bad condition.
    • When the Vampires found out about Yharnam, the city which deals with blood that's more intoxicating than alcohol…let's just say they have been given an eternal banquet on a diamond platter. Many a trip to Yharnam has been made, and they left The Hunter alone afterwards.
  • The Hunter possesses a wide range of weapons and firearms if one peeks into the temple. However the Hunter's shown a preference to the Saw Cleaver and Blunderbuss, and is often seen carrying the two about.
  • He notes that many of the Dark Souls deities in the other pantheons bear a striking resemblance to many of the enemies he has faced during his travels, much to said deities' surprise and intrigue.
  • Considered something of a wild card in larger fights. Admits the number of violent combatants, there are a plethora of means for the Hunter to be covered in blood, and thus made the stronger for it.
  • Recently the Hunter has fired off a bone ash-empowered cannon in order to kill a common spider. When asked about such Disproportionate Retribution, the Hunter was heard muttering about cliffs.
  • Went straight to the House of Emotions when he heard Plain Doll ascended. He gave her a bow to which she curtsied right back.
  • Recently seen preparing to go into The Hunter's Nightmare, Yharnam's mirror world. No one knows why The Whirligig Saw looks like a glorified pizza cutter, though.
  • He found an artifact, a special bell, that is able to summon old hunters from the Hunter's Nightmare. One of these hunters goes by the name Yamamura.
  • His fighting style, while devastatingly effective, has one major flaw: it literally runs on blood. He uses blood to heal and blood to make some of his weapons function. Any one who can't bleed has a fighting chance against him, but considering his allies and the bells he carries with him, it's a very small fighting chance.
  • Eventually, The Hunter was able to retrieve a weapon called the Holy Moonlight Sword. The Dark Souls deities were surprised there was a weapon like the Sword of Moonlight.
    • He also met Lady Maria of The Astral Clocktower, who's actually also the person The Plain Doll was based on. This information caught him off guard.
  • Usually a silent individual, The Hunter can sometimes be heard humming or whistling a creepy little tune when he thinks he's alone.
  • The Hunter's high amount of Insight allows him to see past the thin veil some gods and goddesses use to disguise themselves. This trait has made for a few awkward moments; at one point, he nearly attacked Nyarko. The Hunter had been going along his way when he saw an unspeakable, faceless abomination trying to wrap itself around a young boy. The Hunter leapt into action, and after a short scuffle (in which the Hunter took a fork to the head), they all calmed down enough explain themselves. The Hunter sheepishly apologized, shook one of Nyarko's tentacles, and went on his way.
  • While he usually walks the streets of Yharnam alone, the Hunter has cooperated with a couple of other gods on occasion, one of whom is an eager, if rather reckless young knight named Ceri. The two first met when she was fighting Father Gascoigne; he lent her aid when he noticed she was in over her head, and the two have cooperated every so often after that. He's even given her a Hunter Set as a gift, and actually laughed a bit when he saw what Ceri's lover Yomi had done to the outfit, much to Ceri's chagrin. At the moment, The Hunter is debating with himself whether he wants to tell her about what she'll find if and when she makes it to Byrgenwerth College; part of him thinks she deserves forewarning, the other doesn't want to spoil the surprise.
    • The Hunter's not sure what to think of Yomi. They've only met once, and she seems nice enough, but The Hunter can't help but feel a little uncomfortable around humanoids with canid features.
  • The Hunter's alliance with Gwyn has been put into question following a discovery made within the fabled Ringed City. Gwyn placed a "seal of fire" aka the Darksign upon humanity out of fear of the Abyss even though humanity had full control over it and was extremely loyal to Gwyn. Gwyn compensated the pygmies by granting them a city on the edge of the world to isolate them from everyone as well as gifting his youngest daughter, who was stuck in an endless slumber, to the pygmies. The destruction and madness this "seal of fire" would cause as the Darksign reminded the Hunter of the chaos in the Hunter's Nightmare which was also caused by the Great Ones who were godlike figures in Yharnam similar to what Gwyn was like in Lordran. The fact that parts of the Ringed City were becoming part of the Abyss also reminded the Hunter of how parts of Yharnam, specifically the Byrgenwerth College's Lecture Building, was being pulled into the Nightmare Frontier by the Great Ones like Amygdala. So while The Hunter can understand Gwyn's fear after seeing what happened to the people of Yharnam, The Hunter is not completely certain of keeping his alliance with Gwyn since his actions reminded The Hunter of Kos and her orphan who placed a curse upon all of The Old Hunters for what they did to the Fishing Hamlet. The Hunter will come to a decision after finding time to discuss Gwyn with The Bearer of The Curse and The Chosen Undead and The Ashen One who made the journey to the Ringed City and stumbled upon this discovery.

    William "B.J." Blazkowicz 
William J. Blazkowicz, God of Nazi Hunters (B.J. Blazkowicz, Blazko, Terror Billy, The American, Big Bad Wolf)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bj.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The OSA emblem
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Badass Normal The Big Guy from the Deep South, The Comically Serious, The Dreaded, Silent Protagonist, Shell-Shocked Veteran, One-Man Army, Icy Blue Eyes, Nazi Hunter, Lightning Bruiser, Good Is Not Soft, Surviving his arch-nemesis's Taking You with Me but getting crippled then getting decapitated and then coming back strong.
  • Domains: Good, War, Strength, Destruction
  • Superior: John Carmack
  • Allies: Steve Rogers/Captain America, Angel (Buffy), The Basterds, Hellboy, Indiana Jones, The Doomguy, Ryuko Matoi, Sol Badguy, Seras Victoria, Integra Hellsing, Master Chief, Richard Winters and Ronald Spiers, Boyd Travers, Lance Corporal Jack Jones, Iowa, Warspite
  • Enemies: Wilhelm "Deathshead" Strasse, Red Skull, Millennium, Adenoid Hynkel, Albert Wesker, Voldemort, Sheev Palpatine, Big Brother, Ragyo Kiryuin, Relius Clover, Charles zi Britannia, Nazi Storm Elite, Waffen Infantry and Waffen Officer
  • Uneasy Relationship: Alucard
  • Teeth Clenched Team Work with: Lelouch via Britannia, Satsuki Kiryuuin
  • Opposes: Cornelia li Britannia
  • While there are many deities dedicated with stomping out nazis, there isn't anyone that has that as their singular goal. The Basterds had long thought to have been given the title, but their methods proved to be too offputting to certain characters. Eventually, they managed to find a worthy person. That person is BJ Blazkowicz, a hulk of a man who dedicated much of his life ripping nazis apart. What's even more impressive is that he's doing so in a world where nazis rule the world. All BJ sees are a bunch of nazis that are much too complacent in their domains.
    • His ascension has put Deathshead and his followers on edge. Long thought to have taken Blazkowicz down with him in his final act, he now has to deal with the Nazi Hunter in the Pantheon itself. Both are now locked in an eternal battle. It's not likely that it will ever be resolved.
    • Puts the Red Skull as number two on his list of nazis to curbstomp to the ground. Schmidt was irritated that he has to much so much of his resources just to keep the man contained. It may also be a personal affair. It is rumored that it was BJ that knocked the original Adolf Hitler from the throne of Nazism.
    • Millenium didn't think much of the man at first. After all, he looked like a mere soldier from the Deep South, and they were right. However, that hasn't stopped him from defeating all sorts of supernatural threats. It didn't stop him from laying waste to Millennium's shock troops either. The group will have to think of another strategy to defeat him.
  • Not even the comedic Nazi figures are safe. Both Hynkel and Downfall Hitler have to keep their eyes peeled at all times. They are considered to be the most vulnerable to his attacks.
  • The Doomguy was with him from the beginning, with both characters revolutionizing the first person shooter. Blazkowicz is often referred to as the "grandfather of 3D shooters" among the deities in the House of Gaming. Shockingly, the two of them continue to do so to this day. Nowadays, the two friends are more than willing to rip and tear through nazis and demons alike. Even better if they deal with demon nazis.
  • The two have been under the watchful eye of John Carmack ever since their creation. While he hasn't been in the gaming business for a while, he can always be counted on to give his feedback. He has gained renewed interest ever since the two have restarted their franchises.
  • Despite his more gruesome tactics, Captain America nevertheless welcomes one more enemy of nazis into the fold. He's also willing to help Blazkowicz take down the Nazi empire BJ lives in.
  • Gets along well with Sol Badguy and Ryuko Matoi.
  • It couldn't be stated enough on how lethal the man is. It also doesn't matter what kind of nazi you are; you are good as dead in his hands. He got that philosophy from Angel, whom he pondered on becoming a follower as a mortal.
  • He later came over to the House of War to honor Real Life soldiers Winters and Spiers.
  • Indiana Jones regards to the man as a valuable asset in finding treasures. The professor has had more than one run in with Nazis who wanted to use powerful artifacts. BJ figured he could use Indy's incredible luck at times when Nazis wield ridiculous weaponry.
  • Is also allied with Hellboy, though Nazis are credited in bringing him to this world. Unfortunately to them, they only brought forth one more person who wants to stomp them to the curb. He was hesitant to bring BJ along, but was surprised to hear about just how much supernatural enemies the Nazi Hunter mowed down. Hell, he's contemplated about giving him membership to the BRPD if he wasn't needed elsewhere.
  • Sees Master Chief as a good friend, even when they are rivals in video gaming to this day. Still, BJ would take him over the Flood any day of the week.
  • While there are plenty of Nazi deities to crush, he's realized that there are more people who act like them in all but name. Regardless, he has decided to help those who are dealing with such monsters.
    • Voldemort is a well known example. The author herself admits there are some analogies there, even though she did so specifically in mind. It's not like Voldemort shows him any love; he hates all humans equally and has BJ as one of his prime targets to eliminate.
    • The Social Darwinist in Wesker disturbs him as well. Wesker has specialized in experimental enhancements and may be working with Nazis as well. The problem is that in this case Wesker is more than a match for Blazkowicz. He would have to work with Chris Redfield and his allies to have a chance against him.
    • He also sees comparisons with the Galactic Empire headed by Emperor Palpatine. The Sith Lord has sent multiple Stormtroopers to deal with the threat, only to watch in dismay as BJ destroyed every wave that was sent to him.
    • Big Brother is also a target of his. First of all, he needs to figure out who has been pulling the strings, something that has eluded many freedom fighters for decades.
    • He also has Ragyo Kiryuin high on his shitlist, especially because she's every bit like his father.
    • Out of all of them, facing off against Charles zi Britannia has hurt him the most, The United Kingdom has one of the few free pockets in his world. To see them adopt many nazi platforms has left him disappointed. Yet it will make its liberation all the more satisfying.
    "How many goddamn Nazis are there in this world?"
  • Aside from Nazis (and Nazi-alikes), the other type of enemy highest on B.J.'s shitlist is Abusive Parents (in particular fathers). This is because of his father, who was horribly abusive towards him, such as making him shoot his own dog. As such he holds high antipathy towards the likes of Relius Clover, he describes as Deathshead + his father.
  • Either recalls encountering the colored ghosts that hounded Pac-Man in a secret level at Hitler's bunker or recalls the Ghost Hitlers which were actually just (armed) props.

Lesser Gods

    Boba Fett 
Boba Fett, God of Bounty Hunters
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fett.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His helmet
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Domains: Murder, War, Travel, Bounty Hunters, Popularity
  • Portfolio: Breakout Character, Anti-Villain, Badass Normal, Is pretty human for a clone, Consummate Professional, Cool Helmet, Enigmatic Minion, Guns Akimbo, Hired Guns, Only in It for the Money, Pragmatic Villainy, Punch-Clock Villain, The Stoic
  • Followers: Mostly Mandalorians, Train Heartnet, Jonah Hexx, Marquis Warren and John Ruth, Domino Harvey, Django, Stephanie Plum, All Freelancers
  • Herald: Jango Fett, his father
  • Employers: Jabba the Hutt, Aku
  • Allies: Lobo, Sheev Palpatine, Samaritan, Deathstroke, Lockdown, Gondar the Bounty Hunter
  • Rivals: Samus Aran, Captain Falcon, The Man With No Name, Deadpool, Deadshot, Spike Spiegel
  • Enemies: Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa/Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Obi-wan Kenobi, Beatrix Kiddo/The Bride, Malcolm Reynolds
  • Opposes: The Sarlacc, Mace Windu, Vile
  • Respects: John Wick
  • Complicated Relationship: Rau Le Creuset
  • Lobo's departure from the subhouse of Hunters left a huge hole in command for bounty hunters. Without a patron to watch over them, their ranks devolved into chaos as they fought over the leadership. It took the actions of a son of a clone to discipline the clan. The legendary exploits of Boba Fett was enough for his followers to fall in line. The helmeted one has claimed the throne as the premier Bounty Hunter of the Pantheon.
    • Of course his ascension wasn't completely without drama. A few mumbled about his lackluster performance in his debut film. Fett usually responds with his accolades in his later stories, though it's not always enough to stop dissent.
    • A few more sadistic gods would also point out the nature of his first appearance, which wasn't in the movies… but the holiday special. Not one of his followers would mention that incident for fear of backlash.
  • There are only two deities in the Pantheon who can shake him out of his cold, calculating exterior. Mace Windu is thought to be responsible for the death of his herald and father Jango Fett. The bounty for the Jedi is far higher than that of any other bounty in the Pantheon. Meanwhile, he was appalled that the very beast that nearly ended his life resides in the House of Beasts. That is one being he refuses to deal with, mostly out of fear.
    • There are numerous stories that have tried to explain how he managed to escape the pit monster. Boba Fett would rather not dwell too much into those details other than being glad that he managed to come out alive.
  • Gaining the approval of Lobo, the former holder of the title, certainly helped his reputation. The Main Man eagerly handed him all the paperwork required before heading off on his bike. At least someone else will handle the responsibility now.
  • Jabba the Hutt was pleased to have his most reliable clients in the Pantheon. It would certainly make running his empire in the Pantheon much easier. Palpatine is also glad to have the Bounty Hunter division more devoted to defeating the rebels. As such, he has renewed hostilities with Luke Skywalker and his allies. All Han would say about the bounty hunter was they should have made sure he was dead.
  • Most other ascended bounty hunters see him as a rival more than anything else. Captain Falcon, Spike Spiegel and Samus were not too pleased with some of the bounties the human has handled. His rivalry with Samus resulted in a brief battle between the two. It didn't end well for him.
    • Went in a rap battle with a certain merc with a mouth. The two have been battling for hired help ever since.
    • Is wary with making any sort of deals with the Man With No Name. The cowboy may not care too much about his targets, but he has a habit of getting the better end of a deal, no matter how careful he is.
    • Both he and Deadshot have merely agreed not to get in each others' ways in regards to their business.
    • Fett does enjoy a more professional relationship with Deathstroke. Both know better than to get into petty squabbles. They are even comfortable enough to work together in bigger jobs.
    • Gondar is a valuable asset of his. Fett may be infamous for his success rate, but no one can track a target better than the Bounty Hunter of the Ancients. It helps that the money is all he cares about.
  • Fett holds great pride in the professional way his followers go about their business. Which is why he has no time to deal with sociopaths who would rather cause destruction than actually carrying out their duties. All of those defectors head over to Vile's domain. The similarities to their helmets only further unnerves the two.
  • While he wouldn't say why Vader was keen to make sure Boba Fett didn't disintegrate his bounties, the bounty hunter did acknowledge he has taken that advice at heart. It's why he was initially a follower of Lockdown before his ascension.
    • There were also two occasions where he has squared off against the Sith in a lightsaber duel. Neither is giving out any details about those.
  • Aku is a frequent client of his, hiring many of his bodyguards to go after the dreaded Samurai Jack. Boba Fett was impressed with how well the samurai has handled many of his challengers, sometimes all at once. He's mulling whether he has to take up this job himself.
  • Many of his services are now done online. This is due to the increased usage from Samaritan. He doesn't care either way; as long as the machine can find the cash, he will send mercenaries for it.
  • Has told his followers never to go after John Wick. Boba Fett realized early on that the best way to handle a man like that is not to piss him off.
  • Some of his followers have tried to coerce the Bride back into the fold… which usually results with the Bride walking out with bodies of slain assassins behind her. Fett himself doesn't care much about her defection.
  • As his father served as the basis of Stormtroopers, Boba Fett does feel awkward around them. While he understands the anguish Rau has for being a clone, it's not enough to say Humans Are Bastards.
  • He was once hired by Felix the Cat to track down his stolen Magic Bag of Tricks, which had once again fallen into the hands of The Professor, got scammed off of him by Count Dooku, and got stolen back by Professor with the help of Dr. Eggman and Dr. Wily. Fett got wind of them retrieving the bag and trailed them, but Felix had warned him on no uncertain terms to not deal with the thieves violently, so Boba was forced to bide his time. Eventually, the trio were caught up in an argument over who got to keep the Magic Bag, and Boba took advantage of this to steal the bag from right under their noses, and he returned it to Felix for an undisclosed fee.

    Buffy Summers 
Buffy Summers, Goddess of Vampire Hunters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The First Goddess of the Trope Pantheons)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c1.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A simple wooden stake
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Vampire Hunters, Chosen Ones, Bad Liars, Unusual Speeches, Avoids Killing Humans, The Wooden Stake, Problematic Powers, Natural Abilities from Her Portrayer, Pragmatic Combat, Cool Losers, Deadpan Snarkery, Escalating Douchebaggery, Broken Cuties.
  • Domains: Strength, Good, Feminism, War, Glory
  • Followers: The Non-ascended Scoobies and other slayers, Zero Kiryu, Baron Vordenburg, Abraham van Helsing, Gabriel van Helsing, Rashel, Abraham Lincoln (the vampire hunting one)
  • Superior: Joss Whedon
  • Allies
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Every good and neutral aligned vampire within the Pantheon, including Blade
  • Enemies: Every evil aligned vampire within the Pantheon, The Mayor, Satan, Slender Man, among other evil monsters, Libby Chessler, The Ashleys, Sakuya Izayoi
  • Odd Friendship: The Survivor Crew
  • Pities: Hope Summers
  • "Into every generation a Slayer is born: one girl in all the world, a Chosen One. She alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers. She is the Slayer." And among the greatest of them all is a short blonde cheerleader, who's legendary fights against evil landed her a spot in the Pantheon.
    • Another vampire hunter did try to lay claim to the title. Ultimately, Blade did not have the lasting power of Buffy. He is content with the high priest title for now…lest he gets an opportunity to ascend himself.
    • He received said opportunity much later on thanks to Adrian Tepes being able to cast aside the God of Dhampyrs seat to gain another ally against Dracula.
  • Because the dimension that the Pantheon exists in used her world as a base, she was initially bumped straight up to Overdeity. However, Buffy herself has insisted that she be judged by the same criteria of power and influence as everyone else. Her credentials got her to Lesser Goddess.
  • The vampire slayer has recently been hard at work, ascending her fellow Scoobies into the Pantheon. So far, she has successfully found temples for Willow and Xander. She hopes to add more to the tally.
  • One being from her world she was not glad to see again here? Mayor Richard Wilkins. She was quick to convince the GUAG not to fall for his good-mannered nature: he's a villain all the same, intent on taking over the world.
  • Among vampire hunters, she works best with Simon Belmont, God of Whips. Together, they hope to permanently destroy Dracula, who oddly appears in different forms depending on who he faces.
  • Although she does know that there are more friendly vampires in the Pantheon and even had one serve as her High Priest, she's still wary with working alongside them. Receiving aid is the best those allies can expect from her and vice versa. She seems to have an easier time accepting non-vampire demons and cursed humans, as Dante Sparda and the Good Hunter can attest to ever since she founded the Hunter Squad alongside them.
  • Often gets confused with Daphne Blake, who tends to look like her at times. She does respect Daphne and the rest of the Scooby Doo Gang in regards to their trek to stop monsters, applauding at how they stopped the Nibiru Entity without having any known powers or combat skills. Her group is named in their honor.
    • That wasn't her first encounter due to her avatar. A group of zombie hunters also came by to give thanks. Turns out her avatar was involved with killing nazi zombies, helping the group to survive. She managed to stay friends with them despite the confusion.
  • Buffy may not be in contention for the Woobie award, but most of her group have suffered immensely to the point that Sam and Dean became one of their biggest donors. Expect followers of the two to work hand in hand in fighting monsters.
  • Was glad to see Xena enter the Pantheon as the two were among the most popular female protagonists at the time. Their followers have long requested a match to determine the better fighter, a request both women declined (although neither would back down from the challenge when the time comes).
  • Is seen as an inspiration for teens Kim Possible and Juliet Starling who started off in the same ways…just in different fields. Buffy, along with fellow cheerleading heroine and longtime friend Claire Bennet, initially hoped to ascend one of them as the Goddess of Cheerleading. Those efforts were thwarted by Libby, who pointed out that while the two may be cheerleaders, they don't represent their personalities. In the end, she and Claire managed to find spots for both women in different fields, but the four still hold a grudge towards Libby.
  • Although the Scoobies no longer reside in high school, she still despises posse girls such as Libby and the Ashleys who are very much like those that have harassed them in the past.
  • Rumor has it that Sakuya Izayoi was once a follower of Buffy…that is until her defeat at the hands of Remilia Scarlet. Whether this is true or not is speculation, but it would explain why she gives Sakuya a disdained look on her face whenever they fight. The maid's time-stopping powers have proven to be more than a match for Buffy's powers.
  • To her surprise, there were two more deities with Summers as their last name. Although she had a lukewarm reception with Scott Summers, she bonded more easily with Hope Summers. Much of the reason has to do with how similar Hope's situation was with her younger sister Dawn; both hunted down for their mass potential.
  • Struck up an unexpected friendship with Supergirl when they found out that, being blonde action girls with super-human abilities who started out their careers fighting eldritch monsters in their teen years, they had plenty stories to share. To her surprise, both girls also found an alternate reality where they teamed up every so often.
  • Scouted out Maya Fallegeros as a prospect to join her Hunter Squad. Maya sat on the offer for awhile, before ultimately accepting as more evil threats surfaced in the Pantheon. In turn, the squad has now become the Night Hand, with Maya's temple, the City of Dawn, serving as their base of operations. Furthermore, Maya, with Dante's backing, was able to convince both Buffy and Blade to have the latter join the team part-time. While Buffy is still the primary leader of the team due to being the most experienced at that, she has no issue making use of good resources offered by a partner.

  • High Priests: Erin Gilbert, Abby Yates, Jillian Holtzmann and Patty Tolan
  • Always called when there's something strange in the neighborhood. Even if some people think the number called is considered lame after a while, business is still going strong for them and they're ready to believe anyone that calls them.
  • Now if someone asks them if they're gods, they can say YES!!!
  • Probably the only Mad Scientist gods that Balthier does not oppose. No one ever questions him about it.
  • Should any news reporters such as April O'Neil be absent from their activities, Venkman sometimes reports events of the supernatural throughout the pantheon.
  • Some deities suspect that there is some sort of Commonality Connection between Venkman and Garfield. It's a bit complicated to state fully, though the live-action depictions of each are portrayed by a certain person while the animated depictions of them are by a different, but shared, person.
  • Venkman is the current human host for Osmosis Jones, largely because something about Venkman reminds Ozzy about his original human host. Neither of them have any issues with that.
  • When Phil Connors ascended, he was shocked at how Venkman looks like him, while also being a bit of a selfish jerk like himself before being trapped in a neverending Groundhog Day.
  • On an infrequent basis, they often have to combat Brachydios (and the Raging variant as well), given their experience in dealing with slime. The group consider this to be challenging, especially compared to dealing with ghosts.
  • For some reason, Ray still won't talk about the time that he tried to visit a house that Casper was at and got scared off by some ghosts that were there.
  • The four have plenty of admiration towards Luigi, given that the latter visited some haunted mansions in the past to go ghost-hunting (even if Luigi isn't the bravest member of the Pantheon). They consider the plumber to be an honorary member of the group because of it.
  • Brief currently has an internship with the group, particularly since he views the four as inspirations (and the fact that he wears a similar costume and backpack).
    • In addition, since Panty and Stocking hunt ghosts as well, the duo sometimes works with the Ghostbusters...provided that Panty and Stocking aren't doing their own things at the moment.
  • They have commended Mickey, Donald, and Goofy for making an upstart ghost-busting group, even if it isn't the strongest group out there. Goofy's willing to prove to the Ghostbusters that the Ghost Exterminator Agency ain't afraid of no ghosts.
  • Danny Fenton has proven to be a highly valuable ally for the four given his ability to find ghosts and defeat them. He is often called for help whenever the Ghostbusters are having a difficult time battling certain malevolent ghosts.
    • With the ascension of Erma, she has also proven her worth as a valuable asset to the team, helping them keep track of and holding down some of the stronger and more powerful ghosts here. She also has taken a liking to their team pet, Slimer, going on candy store raids with him at times.
  • They are opening up positions for newcomers to take up should these particular people have an interest in busting ghosts. They're just as open to offshoots of their own unit as well (an all-female team is just one of the offshoots that's happening).
  • Currently, there are three ghosts that the group is trying to target to prevent catastrophic damage to the entire Pantheon: King Boo, Spooky, and Dark Danny. There are suspicions among many that the three ghosts will team up to create a ghostly calamity. Naturally, the Ghostbusters are trying to prevent such a ghostly team-up from happening.
    • Likely because of that, various other mechanics such as Tails and Reed Richards have offered to help improve the Ghostbusters' technology to make defeating the more dangerous ghosts easier.
  • Although capturing and defeating the dangerous ghosts is important to them, they are still called on to handle mischievous prankster ghosts like Gengar and Rotom. The Ghostbusters have already dealt with Rotom before.
  • After review of the Tiamat Incident, it was decided to ascend the other five official members of the Ghostbusters who participated in said incident. Now all ghosts in the Pantheon are more alert over the presence of the nine Ghostbusters.
  • Although unrelated to the deity that is sister to Gozer, the Ghostbusters are not on friendly terms with Tiamat, especially Winston, who lost someone important to himself that no one else can remember as a result of Tiamat's actions.
  • Have been hired by Mike and Sulley to help put a stop to the Bogeyman scaring children.
  • They are keeping tabs on Jack Horner, on the grounds that he may still actually be a ghost. It also doesn't help that he was/is the Jack-O'-Lantern.
  • Kylie Griffin makes frequent visits to the House of Knowledge whenever the main four Ghostbusters are on an active case, as the House of Knowledge contains information on all known ghostly deities or entities that inhabit the Pantheon, and she relays information she finds to them. She became close friends with Luigi, and often helps him when King Boo causes trouble.
  • Melaine Oritz is not sure what to think of all the aliens in the Pantheon, or of Agents K and J, since her first run-in with the Ghostbusters involved a case of the ghosts of Human soldiers who handled Roswell popping up as "alien ghosts", and since her mortal partner in the FBI was obsessed with ghosts.
  • No one in the Pantheon is really fond of Ron Alexander, especially the ghosts who are aware of his tenure as a Ghost Smasher, who dispersed ghosts instead of captured them. Also, he hates children who annoy him. He tried to bust Casper once when the friendly ghost called him out on his attitude. Regardless, his technological genius is still acknowledged, having been able to reverse-engineer the technology originally developed by Egon and maintain it.
  • Peter Venkman loved the fact that Janine Melnitz was finally ascended to the Pantheon, if only because he got his secretary back to handle all the paper-work for him. Meanwhile, Winston was happy that he and Janine could change hands from time to time on managing the three mad scientists of the group. A general consensus among their allies is that the Ghostbusters is that the ship began running much more smoothly since Janine ascended, showing how well she held the business together.
  • The Ghostbusters immediately put the Rookie to work with testing out some prototype equipment, modified to deal with the new varieties of ghosts, spirits and Gods to be found in the Pantheon. He reassures himself that he can still come back even if he does get blown up, now that he's a God. Nevertheless, he already had some street cred as a professional Ghostbuster before the Tiamat Incident, having played a role in the Ivo Shandor Incident, and setting up his own Ghostbusters branch in Chicago.
  • The Ghostbusters once had a run-in with an incarnation of Death as a result of Ron Alexander's screw-up with his original plan for dispersing ghosts as a Ghost Smasher. This Death was trapped in a magical bag for decades by Eugene Visitor, a friend of Egon's who seemingly died, which caused excess psychokinetic energy to build up, energy which Death was responsible for siphoning. Once released, Death quickly took care of the problem caused, which had manifested as a super-powerful Ghost that broke out of several dozen Traps linked to a Megatrap able to sap Gozer's essence.
    • Death of the Endless holds no grudge against Egon's friend, and is simply happy to have one of her children back. She simply advises them to make sure no one pulls the same trick on her.
  • Gets along well with Ellen Ripley, even if sometimes they get scared of her destructive methods. Venkman has hit on her, and promised the Ghostbusters will always protect the child Ripley looks after (they know what happens if something goes wrong).

    Gondar the Bounty Hunter 
Gondar, God of Tracking (Bounty Hunter)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bounty_hunter.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His shuriken with his blades crossing it.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Bounty Hunter, Blade on a Stick, Cat Folk, Awareness of Track Target's Location, Fuuma Shurikens, Highly Visible Ninja Except During Shadow Walk, Excels at Hunting Users of Stealth, Jinada, Offhand Dagger, Letting Nobody Escape Him.
  • Domains: Stealth, Money, Combat.
  • Allies: Kaede Nagase, Spike Spiegel, The Outlaw Star Crew (especially Aisha), Greninja
  • Rivals: The Champions of Runeterra especially Miss Fortune, Captain Falcon, Samus Aran, Lobo, Bridget
  • Enemies: Anyone on his list of bounties. Though he assures them that it's Nothing Personal. Other than that, B.B. Hood
  • When he's given a contract, nothing will stop Gondar from hunting down the target. Once he tracks them down, they can't even escape him with stealth. And god help them if he brings allies along on the hunt, as his tracking skills are so potent that his allies gain awareness over the position of the target.
    • In fact, it even applies to Gondar's shuriken. When thrown, it will bounce and attempt to reach whoever he's tracking.
    • As a bounty hunter, Gondar frequently competes with fellow bounty hunters. When the bounty targets are people who're extremely difficult to find, Gondar has the highest success rate.
    • While Gondar generally has a rivalry with most bounty hunters within the pantheon, Niko and John Marston are very special cases, as not only did these two hunt for bounties in the past, but there's also bounties on them...
  • Has learned that a great evil known as Aku has put a massive bounty on Samurai Jack. Aku isn't in the Pantheon though, so there is no point to hunting Jack right now. However, Gondar has expressed that he is interested in the challenge.
  • As an user of large shurikens, Gondar sometimes exchanges tips and tricks with Kaede Nagase, a ninja and expert on oversized shurikens.
  • While B.B. Hood are enemies with just about every bounty hunter, she seems to hate Gondar most of the hunters. This is likely because that Gondar is non-human.
  • Because of his tracking ability, Gondar is often hired to help track down Scarface, to make it easier to tell where he is when he's invisible.
  • While generally rivals with bounty hunters, Gondar's rivalry with Spike Spiegel is much more friendlier for some reason. Some gods think that it's because Spike is just that likeable.
  • Has befriended the Outlaw Star Crew, especially Aisha for being catlike just like Gondar, even if Gondar is more of a catperson than Aisha.
  • Gondar doesn't really make a big deal out of being a 'ninja', even with his invisibility and shurikens. However, he has become buddies with Greninja, since they're both beast ninjas in a sense.
  • "For the right price, anything."

    Greninja 
Greninja, God of Frog Ninjas (The Ninja Pokémon, Master of Stealth)

Ash-Greninja 
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A Water Shuriken
  • Theme Music: Battle! Trainer (Pokémon X & Y), or XY&Z by Rica Matsumoto
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Gender: Male
  • Ability: Protean
  • Moveset: Dark Pulse, Water Shuriken, Substitute, Double Team
    • Z-Move: Hydro Vortex
  • Portfolio: Being both water and dark type, using water to create weaponry, having the Protean Ability, using the Substitute move, due to being a Ninja Frog, tongues that double as scarves
  • Domains: Water, Ninjas, Frogs
  • Allies: Pikachu, Ash Ketchum, Lucario, Chesnaught, Aegislash, Darkrai, Ryu Hayabusa, Gondar the Bounty Hunter, Big the Cat, Espio the Chameleon, Misty, Calem and Serena
  • Enemies: Lysandre, Plesioth
  • Direct Rival: Kaede Nagase (due to her fear of frogs)
  • Opposes: Vali Lucifer
  • Opposed By: Cirno, Mewtwo
  • Odd Friendship: Terrorblade
  • Back when Frogs and Toads was a trope, Greninja ascended by defeating Wart, the previous god, with a Water Shuriken to the face, and being handpicked to represent the Generation VI Pokémon line for the 4th Smash Bros. Tournament. Mewtwo wasn't happy to find out that he was once again overruled, especially when he saw Greninja's announcement for said tournament.
  • Cirno hates his guts, as he's preventing her from freezing frogs (her favorite hobby). The two have an on-and-off again fight with Greninja, being a ninja, teleporting and escaping her every time, with the additional advantage of naturally resisting ice. Cirno is training herself to learn Freeze Dry and see how he likes it.
    • It is unlikely to work, however, due to the Protean Ability and his access to the fighting move Low Kick.
  • Despite being a frog, Greninja's weak against Bug-type Pokémon. Thus he stays away from Lord Tommyrod and all other insects. This made him good friends with Misty due to him being a water type and also one who doesn't like bugs.
  • Has been evading Kaede ever since he ascended, since her fear of frogs tend to augment her ninja skills on occasion.
  • No comment has been made at this time if there's any connection between Greninja, and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
  • Due to his friendship with Misty, Greninja was asked to help her save Ash from the clutches of the "Friendship Asylum". Since Greninja is a Water/Dark type, the darkness of the asylum shouldn't affect him at all, though Meowth (due to hearing that Riku, who's immune to darkness, was still corrupted) highly doubts this. The rescue was successful, thanks to Greninja sneaking a Key Stone into Neku Sakuraba's hand to trigger Lucario's Mega Evolution, allowing him to block Ash's Aura Sphere.
  • Greninja has been getting along well with Asuka and is partners with her due to the latter's love of frogs and being a ninja as well.
  • The Pokémon has been trying to keep its distance from Plesioth, given the latter's appetite for frogs. Greninja is also opposed to the idea of being used as bait to lure out the creature.
  • Since the original trope he represented had been cut, a few Gods have been taunting him with "Better Nerf Greninja".
    • However, Overly Long Tongue was removed from Midora and given to Greninja at the suggestion of the Court of the Gods, since the frog uses his tongue as a scarf. Midora isn't happy about that.
      • In addition, Greninja is getting tired of the nerf jokes it's been getting and has grown to have a Berserk Button towards them to the point where he started to hate Vali lucifer just for his title.
  • Keeping an eye on Ash's Greninja, as it is a special one that has a form known as "Ash-Greninja".
  • Diancie was afraid of it and Chesnaught and Aegislash, due to the three of them trying to make off with her. However after they assured her that they were working under orders, she became good friends with them.

    Jimmy Hopkins 
James "Jimmy" Hopkins, God of Bully Hunting
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bullyjh.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Bullworth Academy Emblem.
  • Theme Song: Bully Main Theme and Walk Theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, with some shades of Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Bully Hunters (Codifier of the Trope), Casanovas, The Only Sane Kid in a School of Oddballs, Redhead Wearing a Signature Blue Colored Uniform, Jerks with Soft Spots, Smart, Fast and Short Powerhouses, Suffering Genre Blindness Because Gary Smith Used Him, Being a Proud Momma's Boy.
  • Domains: School, Pranks.
  • Heralds: Pete Kowalski, Russell Northrop, Zoe Taylor
  • High Priest: BB
  • Allies:
  • Friendly Enemies: The Ashleys, Sae Kasiwagi, Seymour Skinner
  • Enemies: Gary Smith, Agatha Trunchbull, Eliza and Neil Reagan, Biff Tannen, Libby Chessler
  • Odd Friendship: Aran Ryan
  • Jimmy was always a rebellious student, a huge reason he was expelled from a lot of different schools for the crimes of vandalism, violence, vulgarity, insubordination and arson. After entering Bullworth Academy, he met Gary Smith and he showed Jimmy how to get around Bullworth, but as it turned out Gary was not only a bully but a sociopath as well and double-crossed Jimmy the moment he saw an opportunity. This took Jimmy on a quest to put take control and dominate every clique in the school, whatever the means and defend those that take advantage of weaker students. After taking down Gary, Jimmy was later invited to the Elysium Academy as one of its chief students, becoming an honorary Hall Monitor (A title he isn't very confortable with, given his relationship with the Prefects at Bullworth) and even getting the title of Bully Hunter.
  • Jimmy is usually fairly easy-going and likes to stick up for the weaker students. He may be a shortie but he is not any less dangerous because of it and his fighting skills, while not very perfect, are good enough that he has no trouble keeping up with foes double his size.
  • Despite his anti-heroic stance on bullying, Jimmy is actually a good friend of the Kamen Rider Club. This is mostly because Gentaro Kisaragi found a kindred spirit in getting people to get along with each other, and Jimmy Hopkins respects Gentaro as a friendly delinquent that doesn't bully others. The two sealed their friendship with Gentaro's Secret Handshake and have now become the "Academy Hunters", preparing to capture any and all bullies to administer justice.
    • Jimmy also holds lots of respect for Shun, Miu and JK for many different reasons: Shun for being a Lovable Jock who fights for the side of good because it feels good to do so, Miu because she works hard in order to get to where she is, and JK for his knowledge intel. It's also because all three of them have their own mechas (The King, Queen, and JK Dizer respectively) and is itching to build one of his own mechas to help administer justice.
    • Was not happy to find about "Project: Alternate Gentaro" because he and Gentaro got along pretty well despite their attitudes. Upon finding out who caused it (Mitsuzane) he's been preparing to get back on this bully who caused Gentaro to fall into despair. He was also present during the Friday the 13th that took place, where he helped Sora, Donald and Goofy get inside the Darkness Proxy castle, and later distracted Eric Draven when he caught the trio and tried to corrupt them.
  • Not that along after the whole "Alternate Gentaro" incident, Jimmy decided to be a lot more proactive in fighting bullying, making many friends and plenty of foes along the way. Some people started to praise and even help Jimmy in his attempts at taking down bullies. Some like Kyo Kusanagi, Asuka Kazama and Chie Satonaka respect his combat prowess, with Jimmy often tagging along whenever they run into a problem (running errands and fixing stuff what he usually does).
    • Then there was Makoto Itou, at first Jimmy didn't have a good opinion about him, considering his womanizing nature, but hearing that bullies is the one thing that sets him off, he ended warming up to him. Makoto has even attempted to convince Jimmy to help him deal with both Kotonoha and Sekai, but Jimmy being savvy enough to know that those are bad news, he decided to abstain and only get involved if things get messy.
  • Jimmy is no stranger to meeting eccentric or borderline insane people (He used to think Gary was a friend to him) but becoming friends with Irish boxer Aran Ryan, notoriously for being insane and a cheat, is something he never ever expected. The reason Aran respects him is because in the past he was bullied because of his name pronunciation and so he likes to join him in some bully beatdown if available. While Jimmy appreciates the help, he is a bit wary of the irishman.
  • His days as the Pantheon's Bully Hunter got a lot more difficult once Gary Smith entered the picture. Having learned that his old nemesis manipulated and stole a temple from a deity, Jimmy quickly confronted Gary and kicked him out before anything bad happened. Unfortunately, Gary was here to stay and so Jimmy swore that he would take down Gary whatever the cost. Thankfully, Jimmy made enough friends that Gary had to sneak his way into the House of Villains to avoid getting ganged up by all of Jimmy's pals, and this time these people aren't as gullible or stupid as the ones at Bullworth were.
  • Speaking of bullying victims, many of those adore Jimmy for standing up for them, even if many would prefer a less violent approach to calming things down. Gary was a huge reason why he ended up befriending both Chihiro and Misao, since they were targetted by Gary and given their history with bullying, he didn't want them to suffer more than they already did. That and in a way both remind him of Pete Kowalski, his one true friend.
  • He is respectful towards teachers that treat him well, even if his general delinquent appearance may say otherwise. While at first he thought Skinner was another useless principal like Crabblesnitch, Jimmy's opinion changed the moment he discovered that, even with his flaws, Skinner wants the best for his students.
    • That said, he hates Agatha Trunchbull for embodying the worst traits of both Mr. Burton and Mr. Hattrick while looking like Edna, Bullworth's cook. The moment Trunchbull caught sight of Jimmy, she wanted nothing but to punish the young man but thankfully, Matilda was there to help Jimmy handle her. After that, both Jimmy and Matilda became friends, usually being her best partner when it comes to keeping the halls of School safe.
  • Besides Gary, he's been keeping tabs in a few notable awful people. He constantly is on the watch of Biff Tannen since at least he is dangerous enough to know how to time travel but when it comes to a fist fight, Jimmy thinks he is just a wuss. He is also not fond of rich assholes like Princess Morbucks or the Reagans, having dealt with the Preppies hasn't left Jimmy with a nice impression of rich people in the first place. He personally has beaten the crap out of Neil a few times after he kept pestering some of his associates and other times because he is one of Gary's confidants.
  • When it comes to female bullies or Alpha Bitches, Jimmy likes to take a less direct approach since he doesn't like hitting women. Libby Chessler and the aforementioned Eliza Reagan have been two of the most frequent female bullies he has encountered and usually to combat this he has enlisted the aid of his female Bully Hunter friends to deal with them if things get physical. Other time though he prefers to just egg them or hit them with a slingshot.
    • That's when he ended up meeting Pippi. Her unassuming looks tricked all bullies into thinking she was just a weird girl, only to get plummeted. Jimmy saw potential in her and since then recruited her as another Bully Hunter friend, usually having her patrol the younger members since they are more likely to be safe with her.
  • Believe or not, he is a very good artist even if Jimmy sells himself short. He tends to visit the House of Craft on ocassion, often because he likes to gather items.
  • Niko Bellic believes to have spotted him once on Liberty City, wandering around the park. Jimmy has never really been to that city and he can't quite confirm Niko's suspicion, especially since apparently this was a more grown up Jimmy. Even then, the similarities of both men made them bond and Jimmy fears that his rebellious nature may land him in a similar life as Niko.
  • Can also be found in School Activities.

  • Once upon a time, a young archaeologist from England decided to use her knowledge to raid sites in search of ancient and valuable treasure. Her harrowing adventures and... interesting assets quickly gained her fame. It wasn't long before she was formally invited into the Pantheon.
    • Unsure of which house to reside in, Lara once occupied on the House of Travel. Her occupation took her to many dangerous places on Earth, and being in this house gave her access to all the cool vehicles so that she could continue her search for the wonders of the world (a new one seems to pop up every day). She eventually settled in the House of Professions, filled to the brim with hunters. The victims of her adventures just happen to be inanimate objects.
    • Has agreed not to step foot in the House of Treasures. As tempting as it is, she figured some of the items there would be too dangerous in her hands. Worse, they could end up in more malicious hands.
  • Has undergone not one, but two revisions of the character. There were calls for her to redefine herself to be known other than just her looks. Not surprisingly, she busted through the Polygon Ceiling with flying colors. She just needs to find the right take of her life.
  • There are two men who are considered her biggest rivals in the archeological department:
    • Indiana Jones would rather that artifacts end up in a museum rather than at Croft Manor. Nevertheless, the two end up working together more than what not, usually in the face of more malevolent forces. With that said, few stand a chance when Indy's instinct is combined with Croft's weaponry. The only question is who ends up with the item sought after.
    • Her biggest video game rival is Nathan Drake by far. In this case, they had a slightly better relationship, sharing their bounties after working together. Some say it had something to do with Croft being a poster child for Playstation. Which made her decision for her next game to be Xbox-timed exclusive devastating for him. They still work together if the situation calls for it, but they are not nearly as close as before.
      • It was the perfect situation for Wiz and Boomstick to devise a Death Battle to determine the ultimate Adventurer Archaeologist. Lara defended the crown rather easily, which only further strained their relationship.
  • Is seen as a video game icon of The Fifth Generation of Console Video Games. As such she has received accolades from the likes of Mario and Sonic (though the latter would admit it wasn't his favorite time because of... bad memories).
  • Was also one of the more prominent video game characters that became a movie franchise. While she appreciates the effort Angelina Jolie did for her character, she would rather not talk about it. Lara is a bit more positive regarding Alicia Vikander's attempt to adapt her current incarnation.
    • The old movies made her befriend Tigress (who decided to forgive all the tigers Lara has killed for the sheer fact they share an avatar) and the new one brought Lara to the attention of Jason Bourne (who mistook her for CIA agent Heather Lee).
    • There are a lot more deities that share her Japanese avatar. She tries to keep in touch with them every once in a while.
  • Also competes with Oerba Yun Fang, though in his case he wanted that the item he sought after to be destroyed. In such a case he's sure to give Croft a call for help.
  • Apparently has an Odd Friendship with Shinji Ikari and Makoto Naegi, mostly because they have the same voice.
  • Before her latest game, people had hoped that Polygon would have chosen Croft for his Battle Royale. Alas, she was never considered to be a participant, though she considered herself luck with how it all turned out.
  • If there's ever a time she would team up with Indy and Drake, it would be against Zoran Lazarević, a warlord hellbent on achieving immunity. It was Croft and Indy that helped break the blockage when he held Drake captive in the House of Luck & Fortune. She also refused to get hired for his services. Croft have been on his 'shoot to kill' list ever since.
  • There is one video game character that competes with her for most memorable female character. That would be the bounty hunter Samus Aran. It's a good thing Samus wouldn't take Lara as a bounty; the two have in fact become close friends. Having a space ship on the call is a cool perp for a tomb raider.
  • While she is not exactly a fan of Lara stealing Greek artifacts, Diana does sympathize with how Lara had to deal with her critics. Both have been accused of being oversexualized despite becoming role models for girls everywhere. They can be seen chatting about it in the House of Philosophy.
  • Competes with Scrooge McDuck when it comes to hosting ancient artifacts. While the God of Finance has much more money to fund his expeditions, he just can't match her expertise to traverse the various traps there. The only thing Lara would say about the man is he at least doesn't try and steal them from her.
  • Gave Jackie Chan his blessing during his time as an archaeologist. Not exactly in the fighting part, but in figuring out the history of temples.

  • Enemies: Eustace Bagge, Ratigan, Cuccos
  • Opposes: Dr. Zomboss, Twitch
  • Disliked by: The Farmer
  • A fox that's every bit as wily as one would think, Mr. Fox also has a family he tends to, even if that family isn't quite normal. His main job is to try and steal food from three cruel farmers, but he has a fairly good reason for doing so: to feed his family. Those farmers wouldn't go down without a fight, but Fox and his companions were able to outwit them and give his family the food they need regardless of the circumstances.
  • His temple on the surface looks like a fairly scenic landscape, but his home is actually underground. While this meant that it would be easier for anyone trying to stop him to know where he's at, he does have a couple of backup locations underground. He does have these locations far from the paths of deities who have expertise in tunneling.
  • Even though he is aware that there is a House of Food along with the fact that he could just visit that place legally with to get his family meals, he seems to prefer stealing food from amoral people, especially if said people are farmers. It may also have to do with Mr. Fox being wary of ending up with some weird and highly questionable food if he does attempt to steal stuff from that place.
  • It didn't take that long for him to find some poultry in the Pantheon, but trying to get close to them proved to be more challenging than he thought. Foghorn Leghorn was far more crafty than any kind of chicken Mr. Fox had stolen. That and Foghorn is greatly offended by Mr. Fox's primary occupation, regardless of the fox's reasons. If Foghorn is tasked with guarding chickens then chances are he'll be in conflict with Mr. Fox whenever the latter sets foot.
    • Of course, that is nothing compared to what happened when Mr. Fox got his paws on some Cuccos. At first, it didn't seem too difficult to reach them, but by the time he stole six of the Cuccos, they retaliated and Mr. Fox was forced to retreat from a bunch chickens pecking away at him. To add insult to injury, Foghorn was watching the whole debacle from afar and made jokes at the fox's expense. Mr. Fox really wasn't happy with what unfolded.
  • He doesn't like Ratigan all that much due to encountering a rat that worked for the farmers that Mr. Fox was trying to steal. Given that Ratigan has quite a bit of brains, the fox is worried about what would happen if Ratigan targeted him and his family, though Ratigan doesn't care a whole lot to even notice him.
    • Although he doesn't have the same level of animosity towards Twitch as the Plague Rat isn't really malicious, it's clear that Mr. Fox not only distrusts him, but he can't help but feel that things would be very different if Twitch were really a bad guy. Other issues include just how rancid of a lifestyle Twitch has and why anyone would even like moldy cheese.
  • Dr. Zomboss heard about Mr. Fox's exploits in stealing livestock and figured that it would be of use to him to try and steal some edible plants since they are a thorn on Zomboss' side. Mr. Fox wasn't interested in the offer since he would rather steal things on his own accord rather than do so for someone else. Zomboss' goals are also something that bothers Mr. Fox, if only slightly.
  • No attempts came out of him thus far to try and break in to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. At the very least he might be aware of blueprints of the place, but considering how much more advanced the chocolate factory is compared to a simple farm, he hasn't tried to break in for the time being.
  • There were a few farmers present that it led to Mr. Fox deciding to pay them a visit. He found Eustace Bagge to be very mean-spirited, though not on the same level as Boggis, Bunce, and Bean. While Mr. Fox doesn't really hold a grudge against The Farmer, it was clear that the latter isn't happy about having his hard work taken away from him by some crafty animals. Lucky for The Farmer that Mr. Fox doesn't visit him that much since the initial encounter and that Eustace tends to get in some trouble with the Fox on occasion.
  • While he was able to meet a few other foxes, most of them obviously weren't the same as him in terms of their specialty. It didn't stop him from being friendly towards them and respecting how they care about their friends. He is very friendly with Nick Wilde given that they are both wily foxes and used their wits to help them get past problems. Nick's partner Judy is a bit more mixed on Mr. Fox as while she understands that he has a family to support and that Mr. Fox's adversaries are not very kind, she believes that are ways to support family's without getting into trouble.
  • It's not something that comes up frequently, but he did have a job as a newspaper columnist before he returned to being a thief. When it comes to Pantheon life, Mr. Fox is more of a guest columnist for some newspaper and seems to prefer being a thief whenever he isn't asked to write a column.
  • Telling him to stop swiping is not going to get him to stop swiping. At the very least, he'll probably just stop his planned heist at the moment, but he'll likely have a Plan B to try and get that heist completed for good when he gets back to it. Earplugs may or may not be a part of Plan B, but Mr. Fox does have a hunch that his desired items are going to be better protected next time he tries.
  • As compelling as it sounds, he has no plans to steal anything with a high material value such as jewels. That's better left to more skilled thieves. Not that Mr. Fox isn't skilled, but trying to do such a thing is very much beyond what he can do normally. That and food & drink are more necessary to keep him and his family sustained.
