  • A redheaded android created by Dr. Gero, Android 21 is the first female primary antagonist in Universe 7 of the Dragon Ball multiverse, as well as the first to be both a brilliant scientist and a powerful fighter. By rebuilding Android 16, using sealing waves to block off the powers of the Z-Fighters, and forcing them to make use of a system of linked souls to revitalize their abilities, she became a serious threat to the Earth with a mysterious agenda. Ultimately, the agenda was revealed to be…a bratty teenage sweet-tooth which desired to snack on the powers of the strongest warriors in the universe, manifested in a Majin-like form.
  • Among the linked souls in the system, one particular Earthling Soul had caught hers and 16's interest, and came through with several intriguing abilities that were key to solving the mystery of who she was. Through its travels, the Soul discovered that as pithy as the bratty sweet-tooth thing sounds, the truth behind it is a horrifying tale of a kind-hearted woman fighting against an all-consuming hunger as the result of a terrible experiment by a Mad Scientist.
  • While Son Goku's attempt to respect her Heroic Sacrifice to stop her evil self by requesting her reincarnation instead of wishing her revival with the Dragon Balls was considered noble, the logic was still found dubious since almost everyone else who dies in battle there gets wished back, including Goku himself. Sailor Chibi Moon decided to ask her mother Sailor Moon to resurrect 21 in the Pantheon, while Ajani Goldmane petitioned for her ascension by using her lack of memory about her previous life as a trope seat, citing 21's own gag about herself being "less than ten years old" when the truth is she's probably closing in on a hundred.
  • With her revival and ascension cleared, she was glad to see that 16 was already ascended along with 17 and 18, but was surprised to learn that he'd been rebuilt in the Pantheon well beforehand and his time with her became a memory upgrade to his ascended self. Still, their previous dynamic of motherly boss and loyal assistant resumed as normal. After all, her pre-LEGO Genetics human self was the mother of the son 16 was modeled after, and part of her still desires the normal family life she used to have but can't remember.
    • She was extremely happy about the Android twins' performance in the Tournament of Power, especially when 17 survived his own self-destruction attack and then went on to win the tournament. Once 17 returned to the Pantheon from his cruise with his family and was met with MVP chants wherever he went, 21 started asking about it, until Yamcha told her what it meant. She started joining in and doing the chants herself.
  • 21 and Cell do not get along at all, given that her existence reveals him to be little more than a Super Prototype. She was a human converted into a bio-android by Dr. Gero's machinery, most likely placed into stasis before the Cell project even began. Naturally he was pissed off to see her back in the Pantheon.
  • To the surprise of quite a few people, she has NOT spoken with Dr. Gero since her ascension. While she would like some answers to clarify connection to her human past, she's still afraid that she'll somehow end up wishing she hadn't asked.
    • Unfortunately Zamasu came by and forced her to confront said past, utterly mocking and tormenting her with the information that Gero's love, twisted grief for their son, and paranoia for her safety was responsible for all the devastation the Red Ribbon Androids from 13 up to herself have caused. Citing her as a prime exhibition of the destructiveness of mortals, Zamasu even pointed out that if not for the inexplicably omni-compatible Earthling Soul in the linking system, she likely would've destroyed all life on Earth and beyondwhich would've made her a prime target of his absolute justice.
    • This broke her spirit to the point she quietly begged for death. However, doing so allowed her hunger persona to take control and attack Zamasu madly, causing a cataclysmic "battle" in which 21 almost destroyed both their houses entirely trying to defeat and consume the Fallen Supreme Kai but could barely leave a scratch on him. Ultimately, she suddenly fell unconscious (thanks to 16 activating the sealing waves on her), and then carried out to safety by The Flash before Zamasu could kill her. Sailor Moon used her magic to both repair the damage and encourage 21's good self to fight on, allowing her heart to retake control when she came to.
  • The HeartCatch Pretty Cures became curious about 21 after hearing about the help she got from Sailor Moon and Chibi Moon and decided to go visit her. She treated them to macarons she'd recently bought, and was very open and nice to them. Got a small kick when they noticed she sounds just like Itsuki/Cure Sunshine when speaking Japanese.
    • Her conscience has also made friends with other deities who sound like her in Japanese. She's entrusted Kasumi, Shanoa, and Presea to fight to take her down if her hunger should take over and hurt innocents, while Tomoyo is steadfast in encouraging her to push through without losing herself and Rim insists she can find a way to acclimate her other self without giving into its push. However, none of them trust Medusa Gorgon, as they're well aware that the witch is trying to manipulate her into giving in to her hunger.
  • Her normal self is food-tasting buddies with the good Majin Buu, often taking him to the House of Food. They primarily go for sweets, her favorites being macarons. That said, she's pretty terrified of the evil Buu. After all, Buu's berserk cells collected by Gero's computers are the source of her corrupt hunger, and much like Buu before her, the strong clash between her two personalities will end with fission. To her, the evil Buu represents her fear that even after splitting away from her, the hunger will come up again and consume her from within.
  • One mystery many wondered about with 21 was the mystery of the Earthling Soul. It wasn't an artificial soul, but it worked too well and had too many natural properties to just be an ordinary human soul, so what was it and where did it come from? Most believe that someone from the Pantheon had something to do with it. Given their connection to the Pantheonic Time Police, Sailors Pluto and/or Chibi Moon are usually suspected according to the two working theories that got around. Some believed that Chibi Moon created the Earthling Soul using pieces of souls from Earthling deities around the Pantheon with certain abilities that ran similarly to the Soul, others think Chibi Moon and Pluto convinced the rest of the Sailor Guardians to combine all their souls into one through the power of the Sailor Crystals. Both theories have so far been proven false, but it's still accepted that Chibi Moon and Pluto likely observed the events from the Door of Space-Time.
    • 21, for her part, made friends with some of the people who were named as participants in the would-be scheme, namely Edward Elric (as a fellow warmhearted scientist), The Flash (who researched her case early on and had strong words for Dr. Gero), She-Hulk (who is also shipped with a lot of people), and Ajani Goldmane (who's expressed interest in helping her control her Buu cells in order to contain the hunger).
  • Much like Merkava and Arakune, she is an intelligent creature afflicted by a crippling hunger who was once human. She pities them enough to want to support them, but is concerned as to what extent they may have chosen to embrace being monster carnivores.
    • Their main chasers differ in how they take to the android: Litchi sympathizes with her plight and wants to see her cured or at least able to control it, while Orie distrusts her and would rather see her gone. Vatista, meanwhile, has literally said that she's waiting for 21 to become her problem before she decides anything. This is not being taken as a sign of trust.
    • Father Anderson has declared her a threat and an abomination who needs to be destroyed. She's watching her back now in case he comes after her.
    • Another similar creature, Gluttony, is more simple-minded like Buu; she and Fat Buu are trying to get him away from his cannibalistic norm, much to the consternation of his masters.
  • Raditz has volunteered his services to her as an assistant for some reason. Not trusting Goku's nefarious brother, she has rejected this proposal out of hand.
  • Tenchi met 21 in the House of Physical Attractiveness as she was heading to Bulma's place for one of her semi-frequent visits. Seeing the attractive redhead scientist reminded him of Washu and he'd getting a bit wistful about seeing his harem ascend. She's offered to help him out with that in any way she can. She was able to research their history and discover that Tenchi would soon marry his entire harem and at least three of them would bear his children, successfully making a case that they should join him in his temple since he was a pioneer for harem kings who would Marry Them All.
  • Has been advised to stay far away from Soma Yukihira's cooking, as it's delicious enough to bring ordinary girls to orgasmic states. With her condition, one can't be too sure if food like that will satisfy her cravings or stoke her more sinister urges. Has also been advised never to get near Tsukishima or Ragyo Kiryuin because they might make attempts to rewire her missing memories for their own ends. This became further crystallized when 21 heard about Zonda and the Seven's attempt to target the Masaki house for Tenchi's divine powers, in which Tsukishima was a driving participant.
  • The Sailor Guardians eventually warned her along with the rest of the Dragon Team about a dangerous lich called Death Phantom who had returned to the Pantheon, fearing that he may try to rouse her Hunger and empower it with the Malefic Black Crystal. They weren't wrong, as he attempted it several times, but she and her friends so far have been able to push him back. When they learned that the aforementioned Tsukishima's attack on the Masakis was an indirect byproduct of Death Phantom messing with his mind when the two were first in the Pantheon, she understood just how deadly serious of a threat Death Phantom really is.
  • An easy way to creep her out is to remind her how lustful she can get about literally eating strong guys, especially Goku, when in her mad hunger state. Terumi tried to exploit this, at which point she promptly beat him into the ground with a full course assault.
  • 17 has talked about her condition with Ren Amamiya, the leader of the Phantom Thieves. Ren is currently wondering if 21's hunger can possibly be treated like a Shadow.
  • Was once introduced to Kakyoin because he's a handsome dude who shares 16's red-and-green color scheme and is apparently sweet on MILFs. They made fast friends because they're both friendly people, he seeks to be understood while she seeks to understand, she can see Hierophant Green and recognizes the Stand as a potentially handy tool should her hunger take control, and on that note they both know what it's like to have to die to stop the villain.
  • Has run into fellow scientist Sento Kiryu, and the two immediately hit it off. Android 21 felt even further kinship with the young genius since he also lost his memories supposedly due to experimentation, and can't help but admire Sento's dedication to his ideals of justice regardless of the terrible circumstances that resulted in them being brought around his identity.
    21: Even after knowing everything you believe in is a lie? Where do you find the strength to still have faith?
    Sento: Simple: it's because my belief in Love&Peace was never a lie. That is the one thing I know in this world is true.
    21: ...I can only hope to discover such a truth one day for myself.
  • Also in the House of Mentalism.

  • Self-proclaimed to be a hermit, Kasen Ibaraki is actually many things, and hiding so much more, behind her human-like appearance, ranging from being an oni, to being a Sage of Gensokyo. However, she would much prefer living life as it is now, taking in the beauty of normalcy and calm. Despite being a kind and helpful person, however, Kasen has quite a few dark shades to her disposition and process.
  • Her ascension was arranged by Yukari and Okina as a result of everything that began happening with Gensokyo and its residents since Chimata Tenykuu’s ascension. The fallout of that event has culminated in quite a turbulent series of events for the Touhou deities, both already and newly ascended. Yukari & Okina both knew that they really needed to step up their game and catch up with the modern times of the Pantheon, so they decided to enact a plan to ascend the last known member of the Sages.
    • Kasen had been mainly hanging around Reimu’s shrine up until the day she would be ascended, when both Yukari & Okina showed up before her to request her aid in something. This unnatural reunion obviously made the hermit suspicious, especially knowing of the events that occurred since the market goddess’ ascension, but given her duties as a Sage, she accepted. Once they passed through the Land of the Back Door, they found themselves at the Court of the Gods, and suddenly Kasen knew- she had mainly known of the things that recently transpired, but never got involved as she wasn’t ascended. Yukari and Okina were gonna change that, much to the annoyance of the hermit.
  • Regarding Reimu, Kasen is one of her closest true friends and allies, alongside Marisa…a feeling not so reciprocated by the shrine maiden at first. She once saw Kasen as an annoyance, but over time, she grew to learn and like her quite a bit. Kasen also served as The Mentor to Reimu, guiding and training her for when she has to seal away her cursed arm again, helping her raise more money for the Hakurei Shrine, and other such tribulations. They don’t always see eye-to-eye on things, but they are very much in agreement to them whrn it comes down to it.
    • Kasen, by extension, is also friends with quite a fair bit of Reimu’s camaderie. Marisa is a strong supporter of Kasen’s mentorship to Reimu, which while made the shrine maiden annoyed, it also pleased the hermit. Sanae is pretty much a neighbor to Kasen, as they both live on Youkai Mountain, and are also friendly with each other. With Sumireko, though, things are slightly more tense (especially given what Sumireko did), but they still have an amicable relationship, sometimes finding excuses to visit the Outside World.
    • As a Sage of Gensokyo, she has a sworn duty to maintain the land of fantasy and its integrity. However, of the trio, she is probably the most vocal when it comes to expressing her opinions on the others. Kasen, like Reimu, finds Yukari to be cowardly and annoying, pestering and bothering others into stopping or starting things for her. She echoes this for Okina as well, as well as citing that she has an idea on the inner workings of that secret god’s mind. However, in the end, she still regards them as allies, as they are just as much protectors as she is.
    • Is weirded out a little by Miko’s strange infatuation towards her. Well, Kasen does call herself a “Taoist Hermit”, so it would make sense that Miko would be asking for advice from someone like her, right? Well, she may not really know the full extent of what Taoism is, but her affinity with animals and nature as well as her kindhearted personality have made her quite a fond character in the Crown Prince’s eyes and mind. Kasen isn’t sure of what to make of all of this, really.
  • Ever since her ascension, Kasen has begun wandering around as usual, looking for new experiences. This has resulted in quite a few new friends and foes for her to juggle.
    • The House of Beasts And Fauna welcomed the hermit with open arms (or paws? Appendages?), making her an honorary member of the House. Rexxar in particular respects her quite a lot, as she is a beastmaster in her own right, also having tamed 5 beasts like him as well as being a hermit. The rest of the Beasthood, and by extension most of the House, are also respectful of Kasen, and are more than willing to take her side if she ever is put in a tight situation.
    • Howled with laughter upon seeing Sr Pelo's recreation of the events that occurred within the Scarlet Mist Incident. She found his playful artstyle and animation to be very endearing, as well as its tongue-in-cheek and slapstick humor sparsed with clever soundclips and effects. For a day or so, it was all Kasen can talk about to Reimu and co., who while annoyed at first, eventually decided to watch the video themselves. Since then, Sr Pelo had become a celebrated icon in Gensokyo, and is one of the few deities who have been allowed in and out of it freely without reprecussion.
    • Not all is fine and dandy for the hermit, however, as there are always going to be obstacles in her life. She had been made aware of some recent threats to Gensokyo and its residents, such as Tanya, Alice (not Margatroid), Brand X, Terumi, and older foes like Odio. She’s also found some rather unscripulous characters in the House of Beasts & Fauna, like Chantel DuBois and in her opinion, The Dovahkiin. To Touhou deities in particular, Kasen is quite a critic towards Keiki Haniyasushin, thiugh given their respective stances on animals, this shouldn’t come as a surprise; it’s also not surprising that Junko would be an enemy of Kasen’s as well, given that the divine spirit is in association with Gigyas.
  • Not many people beyond those from Gensokyo know that Kasen is actually an oni. But if you’ve researched Kasen’s last name, Ibaraki, then it does become a bit more obvious as to what she actually is. Her supposed actual identity became one that quite a few took notice of.
    • Rem & Ram, two fellow oni in the Pantheon, became acquainted with Kasen through Sakuya Izayoi. The hermit felt bad for Rem’s current condition, and adds herself to the growing list of deities who’ll help them whenever she can to restore Rem’s memories. Kasen was also acquainted with the Masters of Spinjitzu through the oni servants, who were, again, surprised to find more friendly oni in the Pantheon now, but have since become friends with her.
    • Ritsuka Fujimaru, the master of Chaldea, was quick to locate Kasen, as they suspected that she was their Ibaraki-Douji. Though that wasn't really the case for Ritsuka, Kasen herself was rather unnerved of their description of Ibaraki-Douji, it deeply reminds her of herself, especially when she merged with her arm to truly become Ibaraki-Douji herself. Thankfully, though, when the two oni did meet in Ritsuka's temple, no true animosity emerged, as they instead recounted their respective pasts without much judgment. Since then, both Ibarakis, as well as Ritsuka, have become friends.
    • A deity that gives Kasen some pause is Momotaro, who along with animal companions of his own, took to taking down an island full of oni. While she was more concerned about the oni that had dealt the damage first, she was wary that Momotaro's skills with a blade are not to be underestimated. The boy himself also expressed concern about Kasen, as she is Ibaraki-Douji although not as evil nor powerful without her true right arm, but was still nonetheless rather rattled at such a powerful oni could be around in the Pantheon- and that's not counting Kasen's heralds...
  • Kasen has a myriad of abilities at her disposal, learned from her many years. Ranging from hiding her home in different ways (potentially similar to how Miko does with Senkai), channeling and manipulating light spheres, instantaneous movement, and of curse, incredible strength. She also is in possession of a magical box/cup that seems to have the ability to cure its drinker's ailments and wounds completely as well as grant them strength, but in return, their disposition becomes similar to that of an oni's. For the former, the manipulation of light orbs has gotten her the attention of ne of Miko's training buddies, Oriko Mikuni, but the hermit doesn't think too highly of her despite both of them having a bond with the Crown Prince. The House of Health and Diseases are quick to ask Kasen for samples of medicinal salve from her box, but she refuses to budge when it comes to that, as she states that there's other, and probably better, alternatives that they can explore first.
  • Kasen's main reason for training and mentoring Reimu was so that the shrine maiden can be prepared to strike her, or rather her evil self that was sealed in her severed right arm, down, so that said arm can be resealed. Kasen had planned quite extensively to pull this off, much like how her other fellow Sages have pulled off extensive plans of their own. Since her ascension, she has had many aspects of those events reflected in many of the deities she has seen and met with.
    • Ritsuka, learning of Kasen's previous plight, referred her to the Hassan With The Cursed Arm to spend some time with. They both have cursed right arms, though compared to Kasen with hers being cut off and housing her malicious and evil side, the Hassan's right arm houses a full-on demon, and is attached to him still. Another such friendship would be struck with Hellboy, in the same house as Hassan, also with a cursed right arm. They both also happen to choose to leave behind what they used to be and become better people- and they do like animals, with Hellboy having a fondness for cats while Kasen is much less specific on her likings.
    • Once watched on Sumireko's phone how Samuel Rodrigues brutally slashed off Raiden's arm, and was piqued. She wondered if that, in the unlikely event the seal for her right arm would be removed, she can call upon Sam's help instead. While their first meeting was normal and they were friendly about it, he did bring up the heated moments between Yang, Blake, and Adam, especially with the fall of Beacon. She then encountered the aforementioned trio, one by one, over the course of the following day. While she sympathized with Yang's situation and what resulted from it, she doesn't hold Adam to that degree, but maintains as much neutrality with the other as possible.
  • Did you know that Kasen got banned from the House of Food for a few days? Many cite it as an incident caused on purpose, but the actual events were much simpler than that. The hermit once was at that House to get some food and talk to some of Reimu’s other friends, when she caught whiff of Ragna’s cooking. After a bit of chat about living with cursed arms that can make them evil if unleashed/unsealed and and how good Ragna’s cooking is (which, of course, he didn’t ham about), she took him to meet with her correspondents- Yuyuko and Youmu, both ghosts. Naturally, Ragna freaked out about seeing ghosts, which in turn caused Youmu to freak out about ghosts as well, and now both have their weapons drawn, shrink-eyed and scared. However, Ragna in particular laid eyes at a table where Byakuren Hijiri and her disciples sat- including Nue; his fear becoming rage, he took off and went to assault the alien for that nasty scare she inflicted upon him a while back, which devolved into a brief but full blown battle across the House. And then everyone but Ragna & Nue (who blamed each other) pinned the situation on Kasen, the only noncombatant in that whole ordeal; thankfully, Eiki and co. knew what actually happened, and only gave a light sentencing to the hermit in the form of a three-day ban.
    Yukari: That’s the spirit! Now you’ve really become a resident of Gensokyo!
    Okina: An impressive feat, indeed- what an incident you’ve managed to cause, Ibaraki.
    Kasen, annoyed: Another word from either of you and I’m going to apply intense percussive therapy on your smug faces.

  • It was believed that the SAO incident had ended once all its victims were awake and accounted for, but fate leaves marks. Some very dark marks. A VRMMO player and self-proclaimed bringer of Justice called Death Gun began murdering players in the game Gun Gale Online. Seconds after the victim's in-game avatar died, the real person died of a heart attack. The ensuing panic renewed public distrust of the genre. Word in the Pantheon even speculated that Kira had broken through his probation by the Court and was using the Death Gun avatar as a cover for his new wave of 'justice' in the SAO world. It turned out this wasn't Kira at all, but three denizens of the SAO world, two of whom were former members of the infamous SAO player-killing guild Laughing Coffin. And all three are in the Pantheon now.
    • Shouichi Shinkawa (aka XaXa) masterminded the plot with his brother Kyouji out of a desire to prove their killing ability and terrify pretentious VRMMO players. Kyouji would login to GGO with his brother's avatar 'Sterben' and spy on players inputting their personal particulars into an information terminal from under a camouflage mantle. When it was time to strike, Shouichi would break into the player's (poorly secured) house and inject them with a dose of suxamethonium chloride (succinylcholine) at the exact second Death Gun shot the player in-game. Both were caught by Kazuto Kirigaya, who was investigating the murders on behalf of Internal Affairs Ministry member Kikuoka Seijirou and sent to prison. The third accomplice, Atsushi Kanamoto (aka Johnny Black) would get the last laugh and inject Kirito with their last dose of succinylcholine, kick-starting the events of the Alicization arc.
  • Nobuyuki Sugou initiated a secret assault on the prison the three were held in, emboldened by Quinella's 'accidental' ascension and requiring more allied enemies for his ultimate plan. A group of Laughing Coffin survivors attacked the prison and caused an explosion, replacing the trio with burnt corpses implanted with their DNA. As a reward for the successful additions to their ranks, Ambassador Hell increased funding to Sugou's Fluctlight and Mind Control research and had the rest of Laughing Coffin become heralds of the Death Gun trio. Vassago Casals (aka PoH) has been put in charge of Death Gun as their main herald.
    • The three have only cordial relations with Sugou as they prefer to be left alone but love the cut of his jib. Quinella isn't above providing 'services' in exchange for special favours, though Kyouji has expertly dodged her efforts to convert him. Most of Shocker holds them in some regard as an elite assassin trio.
    • Other deities they take orders from are Masamune Dan, Ali al-Saachez and any high-ranking member of Shocker, though they don't enjoy being instructed to do someone else's bidding unless it's PoH, for whom their reverence borders on worship. Apparently they conveniently forgot that he revealed the location of Laughing Coffin's base just for kicks. Vassago managed to divert blame on Abridged Kirito and Asuna for convincing Laughing Coffin to advertise themselves as better killers-for-hire, causing the guild's downfall after they decided to reveal the location of their base. And they bought it.
  • Judge Romulus and his brother Remus were assigned to them as high priest. As much as they despise potential competition and disassociate themselves from the Viridian Killer at every waking moment, the former's influence in the Court of the Gods has gotten them out of many a court case.
  • The three co-conspirators can physically access all their in-game avatars in the Pantheon, though like Sugou, this required Shocker's intervention before they could do so. Shocker has also provided the trio custom Death Gun armors in addition to their in-game avatars. Pro-tip, they can be identified by the armbands on their left forearm; red for Shouichi, jet black for Atsushi and khaki green for Kyouji. The armbands of the former two have personalized Laughing Coffin emblems.
  • Kirito might as well have been Asura when he got wind of the trio's ascension. Laughing Coffin caused a sizeable portion of the deaths in the SAO incident For the Evulz knowing that Kayaba would be blamed for everything. As the first true foes he ever faced, there's a special place for Shouichi and Atsushi in his personal hell. When Death Gun began his new string of murders across the Pantheon to get Kirito's attention, he beat all of them to near-death (except Kyouji who he mercifully knocked unconscious). XaXa and Johnny rightly fear the Black Swordsman given that he took down the both of them and dealt their leader a long, slow Fate Worse than Death. Sinon rushed to meet Kyouji in the House of Health and Diseases hours later, promising him that things will get better.
  • More than once have their murders been pinned on Goro Akechi since his modus operandi is mental shutdowns. If not for the offline coordination, their method of murder could easily be mistaken for Akechi's. Both are painfully aware of this and have even come to blows on occasion. Their last known one ended with the trio being hopelessly outmatched even with their enhanced armor, since Akechi has surprised them with a few extra Personas that weren't Robin Hood or Lokinote . An unconscious Kyouji had to be bodily dragged away after the beatdown was over. Naturally this also makes the Phantom Thieves of Hearts their enemies (especially Futaba and Haru, who have lost their mother and father respectively).
  • Dr. Doom denounced them as wannabes when a botched assassination attempt occurred within sight of his temple. And they were stupid enough to challenge him. Let's say what happened next wasn't pretty. All three were found dead in their temples with their masks glued to their skulls (hot glue!) and crying in pain. Dr. Doom insists he didn't do it, and it would be quite petty for him to do so to. The trio maintains that he definitely did it despite no evidence of it. By Kyouji's words, who else would glue a mask to their face?
  • Laughing Coffin's reputation has earned the attention of other hunters and killing groups like the Brave Companions, who share their love of rape. Other honourable deities like Boba Fett and Jigsaw dislike their lack of honour, with the latter condemning XaXa and Black for killing in SAO simply because it would be blamed on Kayaba. He is preparing a test for those two and Vassago. Kayaba himself is just as opposed to Death Gun as he is to Sugou but is unwilling to involve himself in a war with them.
  • Exclusive to Shouichi:
    • The brains behind the operation, Shouichi Shinkawa was meant to succeed his father as a hospital director but his frailty made his father entrust the family legacy to Kyouji instead. Quitting high school and turning to virtual reality as an escape, he was trapped in SAO and fell under Vassago Casal's influence as one of the dragons of Laughing Coffin. A Nightmare Fetishist who specializes in spying and kill strategies, his sickly body is nothing to scoff at as it hides a devil inside. One of the worst examples of gaming addiction in the Pantheon, he has been banned from the houses of Gaming and Technology with a provisional ban from the House of Family.
    • Serves as Death Gun's Mission Control, relaying instructions from a darkened room full of computers and hacking devices. While he can go outside in his Sterben avatar, he prefers not to unless the target is especially important (or Kirito). Besides, no one wants him to get out of his chair. His exceptional memory, hacking and observational skills have earned him the attention of some House of Technology deities. All good-aligned deities from the sub-house of Technological Experts hate him for perverting useful technology to kill people. Fellow hacker Aiden Pearce even suggested his ban from both houses, for which Shouichi has sworn revenge.
    • Burning red eyes are present in all his in-game avatars which earned him the moniker 'Red-Eyed XaXa', a symbol of fear second to only PoH himself. Shouichi relishes in fear and unsurprisingly gets along with fellow Nightmare Fetishist Scarecrow. Shouichi sometimes tests new fear toxins for the good doctor, even though he thinks using a serum instead of inducing fear personally is cheating. Or he thinks that Crane is a sissy for getting beaten by Batman, an actual living symbol of fear.
    • Shouichi is in contact with several unethical hackers in order to boost Death Gun's information control. Two of the most notable are Sombra (not that one) and Teseo. He's undoubtedly impressed by Sombra's choice of weapon given that its rate of fire is twice that of his preferred firearm, the Type 54 pistolnote . He provides her info on Shocker's activities (as much as Sugou lets him) while she provides ammunition and dirt on Death Gun's next target. Teseo was briefly a heated rival of his but their relationship has smoothened into a tenuous Big Bad Duumvirate since they're not so different. They're both depraved, entitled maniacs who joined a villainous gang For the Evulz.
    • Hates the House of Health and Diseases since it reminds him of the father who pressured him into a life he didn't want and left him in the mud for being ill. He has tried several times to destroy the place to little success. Another reason is to kill Yuuki Konno, who's often been described as his good counterpart. Abhorring any notion of a superior version of himself, he actually tried to destroy the entire ward and got a taste of her unmatched swordsmanship firsthand. He plans to counter-attack personally but with her abilities on par with Kirito knows that he's in for a serious battle.
  • Exclusive to Kyouji:
    • Kyouji is considered The Heavy of the trio, and for good reason. The pressure placed on him to inherit the family legacy made him give up on reality like his brother and work with him on the Death Gun incident. His attachment to Shino Asada (aka Sinon) grew so obsessive that she was one of his targets so they would be together in death. Thankfully, he was stopped and for the little time he was incarcerated received moral support from Shino, who never stopped believing in him. This is the only thing that has kept him stable so far. Whether or not they will get together is still up in the air.
    • Shino is still Kyouji's best friend in the Pantheon despite knowing he's now one of Shocker's professional assassins. She recognizes that Kyouji is under the influence of worse people than himself and that on the inside, he's a genuinely good person. That doesn't mean she's a pushover though. She's not inviting Kyouji to her temple anytime soon and any violent outburst from him can easily be countered by transforming into any of her avatars, though she's promised not to use the powers of Solus on him. Her time with him is promising and no incidents of Attempted Rape have ensued yet. Twilight would be proud.
    • Has to contend with his brother's toxic influence and is a Reluctant Psycho at best, usually appearing as his friendly but lonely 'Kyouji' self who attends high school and avoids killing, even making excuses to hang out (or even bunk) with his allies, especially Sinon. When under extreme duress or in Shouichi's and Atsushi's enforced company, he slowly reverts to the more vicious personality he displayed during the Death Gun incident. The change is subtle enough not to be classified as a Split Personality just yet, but the change is frightening nonetheless. He dislikes any allusion to his instability, since some jackasses like to bring this up.
      • If he's on a solo mission, you can tell it's him based on his general hamminess compared to Shouichi. His older brother can be just as dramatic (see the quote below) but only when he's in a really good mood.
    • He sympathizes and even has ties with killers, criminals and anti-heroes with Split Personality problems. Elise of the Sumeragi Swordsmen who definitely has three identities has tangled with him before, as has Harvey Dent. An Anti-Villain who he gets along with swimmingly is Kamen Rider Tiger. Ironically their philosophies are the complete opposite: Kyouji has (or had) given up on real life and turned to gaming while Satoru pushes himself to be accepted as a hero by society. Satoru's learnt a lot since his Karmic Death and is considering teaching the wayward teen in the ways of heroism to redeem himself for killing Hideyuki.
    • Similarly gets along with Dexter Morgan who limits his serial murders to criminals who haven't been caught. Kyouji (not as Death Gun by the way) has been involved with some of these since his ascensions. Dexter's tried asking Kyouji to move to his temple but even if he's more principled than Laughing Coffin his current location isn't any better. Moreover having a police consultant bunking with a known virtual killer would provide too many opportunities for Shocker to insert a mole into the TPPD.
    • Most of all is Ken Kaneki, who Shino introduced him to. A working father who was quite the psychopathic Anti-Hero a couple of years before ascension, Kaneki knows what it's like to handle a killer instinct. Sensing something in the boy (not that), Kaneki offered him a day job at :re which he accepted for once. This is a first step on a journey to recovery that his two partners are determined to prevent. The old GUAE Re-Education Facility better get renovated soon...
    • ...which happened on the day Kyouji, Shino and the SAO gang attended a gala in the House of Music. Kyouji was almost kidnapped in the toilet tending to his ears after a particularly grating opera performance. Kousei Arima in passing witnessed the event and called for security to detain the Shocker goons and Kyouji was able to watch the rest of the concert in relative peace and thought his performance with Kaori made him feel ecstasy. When he asked Kousei how he heard him through the noise, the master pianist said this:
    Kousei: Oh it's simple really. Something about (flustered sweating) 'that voice' of yours I guess?
  • Exclusive to Atsushi:
    • Atsushi was brought into the scheme after Kyouji determined that without a motorcycle licence it would be difficult to get to victims on time. When his co-conspirators were arrested he was forced to go into hiding with their last dose of succinylcholine, which he used in a surprise attack on Kirito and Asuna half a year later. He got arrested for it, sure, but Kirito fell into a coma which took two arcs to recover from. Quinella probably has the worst relationship with him since his pathetic revenge indirectly caused her downfall.
    • Probably the maddest out of the three who isn't afraid of getting caught by authorities as evidenced by his attack on Kirito. When people see him on the streets of Mentalism, they quickly see a psychopathic gangster. The username Johnny Black makes that even more obvious. The only few people who eclipse him and his buddies in terms of blackheartedness are Nobuyuki Sugou, Quinella, Vassago Casals/PoH and Gabriel Miller/Subtilizer.
    • The trio's Master Poisoner, Atsushi has plenty to play with in the House of Toxicity, in particular Caesar Clown. They've experimented on poisons in the thousands and once raised the eyebrows of everyone in the nearby House of War when rumour spread of them using Zyklon B. They vehemently deny this because they believe that said gas is way too tame.
    • One of his partners (or tenuous allies, you do the math) is Kamen Rider Ouja, a murderer with similar tastes and appearances. Ouja's direct style of attacks complements Atsushi's poisoning skills perfectly. Atsushi has even started dressing in snakeskin shirts like him. While the rest of the team has no ethical standards, they do prioritize one thing above killing: self-preservation. Apparently Asakura didn't get the memo.
    • Billy Kane condemns him for smoking on top of being batshit crazy and Faust Baldhead is offended that Atsushi tortures people while hiding his face as a Sackhead Slasher (although admittedly Atsushi's face is pretty horrifying to look at so maybe it was for the better), grimly reminding him of his villainous phase.
  • Shouichi: "Death Gun is my name and the name of my gun. One day I'll pay you all a visit too and bring real death with this gun. You've seen my power, it is real. This isn't over, not yet. I'm just getting started. It's showtime."

    Inori Yuzuriha 
Inori Yuzuriha, Goddess of Being What She Is (Doll, Monster, Mana's Vessel)
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: An orange-red flower shaped Dress. Alternatively her void (A giant Sword)
  • Theme Song: Euterpe and Departures.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Famous Lead Singer, Pink-Haired Emotionless Girl, She is Capable In Combat, Mysterious Girl, Apocalypse Maiden, Defrosting Ice Queen, Sacrificing herself to save Shu and the World
  • Domain: Music, Discovery, Vessels, Personality

  • Complicated Relationships: Mana Ouma, Gai Tsutsugami
  • Odd Friendship: Sarah Kerrigan, Black★Rock Shooter
  • Opposes: Anyone who has done a Demonic Possession or a Grand Theft Me
  • Inori Yuzuriha is known in her world as the famous Idol Singer of EGOIST, a band that took the internet by storm and became popular overnight. In reality, Inori was secretly a member of Funeral Parlor, the rebel group that opposed GHQ, and after a faithful day she stumbled upon Shu Ouma, the boy that changed her forever.
  • Her reasons to ascend is wanting to explore more of the outside world now that she has discovered the true beauty of it and she believes that the Pantheon is a fascinating place to explore. Due to that transitional experience, Inori's gifted songs and mysterious vibe has garnered her a lof of popularity and respect.
    • She is also really happy that Shu is ascended, as now they have all the time in the world to spend it together. At least when it comes to the pantheon, because she doesn't have a physical body anymore in the real world after she sacrificed it to save Shu, but she assures her beloved that she will be always with him.
  • Given her status as a singer, Inori likes to frequent the House of Music, often found performing one of her numerous songs. She also befriended felow Idol Singers Hatsune Miku and Sheryl Nome.
  • Inori became close friends with Rei Ayanami and C.C. due to how they used to be emontionless but eventually started to warm up to their close ones. Furthermore, both Inori and Rei also bonded about how they are clones of Shu and Shinji's biological family members, something that somewhat unerves Yui.
  • Madoka Kaname has always supported Inori to open up to other people in order to become a better person and always encourages her to go live her life with Shu. It also helps that Inori seems to dislike the Incubators due to how the creatures like to play with human emotions and seem to have taken an interest over Inori due to her status as Mana's vessel. Understandably, Shu is having none of that.
  • Her relationship with Mana is a little, complicated to explain. Inori's origins are a mystery but she has been created with the sole purpose of being Mana's new physical body, until Gai freed her. Mana actually came to her and said that there is no need to have bad blood between them because she feels much more stable, but Inori is not forgetting how she hijacked her body and tried to do bad things with it.
    • Although they will put aside their differences when it comes to dealing with Yuu. Both can agree that Daath has ruined their lives enough and that they are not going to allow them free reign in the pantheon.
  • Much later when Gai ascended, Inori felt conflicted whether she should still be friends with him or not. He was the one that gave her a purpose after all, but she can quite forget what he has done to her after being revived by Da'ath and is a little upset that he is still very much dedicated entirely to Mana. That said, they can at least be sure that when it comes to a common foe like Da'ath, they won't hesitate to ally once more.
  • For a while, Inori used to get really upset when someone called her a monster, given her inhuman nature. Although she got used to it, Masato Kusaka has often tried to hunt down the pink-haired girl because of that, a thing that Shu founds unforgivable.
    • However, Takumi Inue has come forward to defend Inori from Kusaka, as he can also understand her situation.
  • Her singing has the ability to cure victims who suffer from the apocalypse virus, which would explain why she is very popular in her world. This in turn made her a potential target for others who are interested in using her for malicious purpose, since her blood can also heal the virus. People like Albert Wesker or Edward Richtofen have already tried to abduct her.
    • On the other hand, Alex Mercer has also heard of her properties and has expressed a desire to absorbe her. Inori is terrified of Alex not only because he is much more stronger than her, but given his nature as a living virus, he isn't that different from Mana and Inori doesn't want to relive the times she was possessed by her.
  • Not very fond of people able to steal bodies, because there was a time where Inori had to struggle with the personality of Mana trying to take her over. She has a special disdain towards Pazuzu, given that he is the one that represents what she hates about those people.
  • When she really needs to defend herself, she can actually pull crystal spikes out of her body, and is strong enough to take down Endlaves by herself. Many deities had noted that she looks awfully similar to Kerrigan in her Queen of Blades form, and the Hive Queen herself became a friend of Inori, only because they also were manipulated by a greater force.
  • Believe it or not, EGOIST is an actual band outside of her verse, with her being both the mascot and the face of the band.
    • She also has performed a lot of songs for other anime. She got to befriend Akane Tsunemori because she got to perform a couple of songs for her show, but what intrigues Inori the most is how she seem to sound like her friend Ayase.
    • She was happy to hear that her band was responsible for bringing Black★Rock Shooter into the spotlight.

Mistral, Goddess of Lost Identities (Cold Wind of France, The World's First Boss Fight, Handcareer)
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Polearm - L'Etranger - surrounded by her artificial arms
  • Theme song: A Stranger I Remain.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Ax-Crazy, Tons of Arms, Mechanical Body, Traumatic Backstory, Treats Her minions like crap, Blood Knight That really enjoys harm, Half-French, Half-Algerian, Dark Action Girl, Sexy French Accent, Femme Fatale, Flunky Boss, The Immodest Orgasm, Manipulative Bitch, Slipknot Ponytail, The only female member of the Winds of Destruction, Beautiful woman standing at 6'3
  • Domains: Combat, War, Craziness, France.
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Gilgamesh, Etna, The Spy
  • Enemies: Raiden, Bladewolf, Solid Snake, Ivy Valentine, Charlotte Dunois, Night Raid, 2B.
  • Evil Counterpart to: Alisa Bosconovitch
  • Odd Friendship: Ragyo Kyruin
  • Opposed by: The Prinnies, The Goombas, and every group of servant minions.
  • The sole female member of the winds of destruction and hailing from Algeria, Mistral was orphaned at a very young age because of the civil war. She eventually found her parents' murderers, and, in her words, "butcher those fuckers". Since then she hasn't been feeling like herself and became quite the accomplished killer, earning herself a spot where she is now. After pulling some strings, Armstrong's buddies eventually managed to complete the Winds of Destruction once more. Obviously, Raiden has taken note of this and is not too happy about it.
  • Mistral's stay in the pantheon was a complicated one, since she contended with Gilgamesh for the the title of Multi-Armed and Dangerous for the longest time before ultimately losing the fight. However, Armstrong had already made a backup plan in case she was due to be kicked out, and managed to give her another title. As a result, Mistral developed a fierce rivalry with Gilgamesh for snatching the title off her.
    • She does get along with General Grievous, since he also fights with multiple weapons at once.
  • Is never seen without her Dwarf Gekkos, which are her means of providing herself weaponry. However, she isn't very kind to them and even throws them carelessly at her enemies.
    • Rumor say that she also uses them for... other activities. She hasn't commented about that but laughs whenever it is mentioned.
  • She is hated by the vast majority of minions in the pantheon, simply because of how she treats her dwarf gekkos. The Prinnies in particular compare her to Etna. However, the latter isn't very fond of the cyborg. It's not because Etna cares her prinnies, but because of Mistral's bust size. The two have become rivals as a result of that.
  • Mistral's weapon consist of a staff that can turn into a whip, which really got some people of the Houses of Lust excited. She, however, clarified that she isn't into bondage.
    • She also got herself into a fight with Ivy Valentine, given that both have similar fighting styles. While the fight ended inconclusively, it's clear that they can't stand each other.
  • While she is a cyborg, it has been rumored that her chest might be all natural. The House of Machinery and Technology is hesitant to even check it out and Mistral herself just laughs it off when asked.
  • While she herself hails from Algeria, she is of French descent and it shows. She has been compared to IS pilot Charlotte Dunois, but the latter doesn't like the comparison and neither does she likes Mistral herself. The cyborg has been interested in challenging Charlotte for her title but she is biding her time.
    • Another French deity that caught her attention was The Spy, given how resourceful of an assassin he is. While the Spy has tried to hit on the cyborg, Mistral has refused his advanced so far. However, they both consider each other rivals.
  • Considered to be the Evil Counterpart of Alisa Bosconovitch, given that they are both mechanical women with Pink Hair. Mistral isn't particularly hostile towards the Robot Girl, as she considers her to be a younger sister of some sorts. But, she is interested in trying to fight her with her "safe mode" off.
  • She is on pretty good terms with Ragyo Kyruin, given that they do sound quite similar. Ragyo, for her part, isn't very fond of Mistral's boss, Senator Armstrong, but has taken a liking to Mistral over time.
  • Bladewolf absolutely despises her, not only for being a Manipulative Bitch with him, but for also promising the robot freedom that never was true to begin with. She also is one of the reasons why he refuses to give his paw to anyone.
  • A friend she never thought she would meet was General Esdeath, who sympathizes with Mistral's views of the World and is also a close ally of Armstrong. To the surprise of everyone, the thing they most like to chat about are the boys the like, which has left many perplexed.
    • This however, has gotten Mistral in the sight of Esdeath's mortal foes, Night Raid, and already plan to take down Mistral and the rest of the Winds of Destruction has been hatched.
  • Holds her boss, Steven Armstrong, in high regard. Her devotion to him is so great that many think she actually may be in love with him. Whether this is true or not, she still thanks him for giving her some meaning to her life.
    • She also followed him and joined GUAC, as she really doesn't care who she serves as long as she gets to fight. It helps that her close friend Esdeath is also part of the group.
  • "At times I envied my prey. At least they had a cause to die for."

  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Ren Hakuryuu (Yuya) | Sayaka Maizono (Yuzu)
  • Conflicting Opinion: Iroque, Jin Kazama (bordering on pity)
  • One day, the House of Theater was holding an exhibitional Action Duel and everyone is curious who will be performing. Sora Shiun'in had a good feeling who they are and bought a ticket just to see. Sure enough, when the curtains open, the performers made a familiar speech, the lights finally shine on them to reveal his true best friends, Yuya Sakaki and Yuzu Hiiragi in a jester costume and an elegant music-themed dress respectively. Their appearances are enough to put a legitimate smile on his face. During the duel, he notices that Yuya and Yuzu had mixed their own monsters with those of their counterparts, which means that said counterparts are working together to help them. The duel ends spectacularly in a draw with the performers giving it their all and the audience applauded enthusiastically. Once they left, Sora finally reunites with Yuya and Yuzu at the backstage by giving them a warm hug. After some small talk, Sora offers them a place in the Pantheons. They were both curious about it anyways, so they accept. They were brought to the Court of the Gods for pending approval.
  • Their temple resemble Yuya's house, down to the last detail. The only noticeable difference is that there is more rooms to accommodate all eight of them and a door that leads to an Action Duel Room whenever they want to practice their skills. Once they settle in, they decided to get to know each other since the Dimensional War kept them too occupied.
    • Yuto and Serena are surprised that they share some common things. Yuto also says he does not blame Serena for the invasion on the Xyz Dimension to which Serena accepted with relief. Serena even described him as "Yuya, but edgier" (which he is a bit miffed about). Yuto also mends his bridges with Yugo when they both found out they have a prior connection and they would do anything to save their beloved.
    • Yugo finds Ruri to be very pleasant to talk to, calling her "a nicer Rin". Rin both got envious of Ruri and feel offended at his remark, even if Ruri is very nice (it also helps that she's the only Braclet Girl that hasn't hit him). Yugo also get along easily with Yuya after some hearsay from Yuzu and finds a lot of common ground with him. Some would say they were closer in another timeline as well.
    • Besides Yugo and the other orphans, Rin doesn't have many friends. She finds pleasure with the other Bracelet Girls aside from sharing experiences of brainwashing and kept in giant tubes; Ruri is obviously nice and Yuzu has more kinship with her, bonding over their dumb best friends. Serena is a special mention as Rin ended up developed a Friendly Rivalry with her; one minute they are bickering and another they got along fine. Yugo wonders if the Synchro and Fusion Dimensions are destined to bicker with each other. On another note, Rin also got along with Yuya, finding him more restrained than Yugo and Yuto once she looks past his scary exterior.
    • Besides Yugo and Rin, Ruri meets Yuya and Yuzu and finds a lot of similarities between her and Yuto, only with a stronger and pre-established relationship and no romantic step yet. She offered some relationship advice to them, but they politely decline with blushes on their faces as they feel not ready for a serious relationship yet. She also got along with Serena as she contrasts her tomboyishness with Ruri's feminity as well as bonding over being brainwashed by the Parasite Fusioner.
    • As for Yuri, well... everyone but Yuya is not willing to forgive him, not after all the things he has done during the war. Yuya already learned that Z-arc played a part in his sadism and assures everyone he will not harm another life anymore. Yuto however, points out that the Court will not go easy on Yuri, seeing how the most depraved monsters ever has a place in the Pantheons by being supervised very often. Yuri admits he is ready to bear his sins and decided to take a passive role from now on. The other counterparts then forgive him, but declares that they will not hesitate to stop him once more.
  • Applies to all of them:
    • After that, they decided to meet other people who came from their universe. Yuya obviously get along with his predecessors due to metaphysically combining their abilities by mastering all four prior summoning methods and having some of their traits while still being his own person. Yuya also has an unfortunate meeting with Anna Kozuki, with the latter thinking it was her similarly named childhood friend Yuya Tsukune arriving. She quickly apologized when Yuma had to clear up the confusion, though Yuya luckily forgives her for that mistake. Meanwhile, Yuzu got along with her own predecessors, who are so proud of her for being more important in her story. She is a bit baffled that the Asuka Tenjoin she meet in the Pantheons is rather different than the one she met, to which Asuka became curious about her Fusion Dimension counterpart.
      Asuka: What was my counterpart like?
      Yuzu: A lot like you, only she never said anything about an older brother.
      Asuka: Hmm...
      • Yuto gets along with Yami Yugi and Astral due to guiding their respective protagonists, even being similar to the former in some aspects. He and Ruri also meet Kaito Tenjo, who is rather different than their home dimension's Kaito, as this one had a little brother and robot assistant. Kaito has never met them before, but when he found out about their Heartland being ravaged during the war, he offered his full support of them. Their herald, Allen has met the aforementioned Anna, who proceeded to befriend him and help him in refining his Railway deck. They both have noted the same surnames.
      • Yugo and Rin bonded with Yusei Fudo and his friends as they join together in building and tuning D-Wheels and eating some good cup ramen. They also realized that Jack Atlas seems a bit chummier than they assumed before, and luckily Jack has his Synchro Dimension counterpart as his high priest, so he understands their situation. Yugo got along with Bruno, who joins him in crazy antics, making Rin feeling like there's two Yugos now. Rin also got along with Aki Izayoi for being connected to witches in one way (Aki with her Red Baron, Rin having a Wind Witches deck). Rin was shocked that Aki's powers ostracized her from her peers when she was younger and caused her to join a cult of psychics.
      Rin: I can't believe you had such a rough life before, Aki-san.
      Aki: You tell me. At least it's better than a war that spans dimensions.
      • Judai is glad that his High Priest, Serena is here and decided to mentor her to polish her dueling skills. She finds him a better elder figure than Professor Leo, who would act distant to her sometimes. Yuri gets along better with Yubel, as they were once evil before, weirdly fixated on their respective protagonist and ultimately became one with them.
      • They have made enemies there as well. They don't like Bandit Keith for his tendency to cheat. Dark Marik is so Ax-Crazy that it even hits Yuri too close to home. Noah Kaiba may have reformed, but the counterparts will stop him if he does anything funny. The same goes for Dartz and Takuma Saiou whenever they are possessed. Otherworldly beings like Zorc Necrophades and Don Thousand are on their shitlist as well. Zorc is curious to death about his Expy while Thousand is considering reawakening Z-arc within the boys for his own plans, not realizing that Z-arc not only reincarnated in another person, he also already lost his appetite for destruction a long time ago.
    • The Bracelet Girls had an unfortunate encounter with Embryo one day. Embryo has heard about their dueling prowesses and feel they are strong enough for his tastes. They had heard rumors that he is dangerous, especially towards women and tried to escape. Before he can take them away, the Chick Magnet Quintet came to the rescue. Issei Hyodo and Ange were absolutely pissed that he would attack such defenseless and innocent girls, especially during their downtime. Not wanting to take any chances considering they are strong enough to pulverize him, he escapes after proclaiming that he will capture the girls one day. The girls are very grateful for their help and decided to ally with them, and by extension their lovers as well.
      • When news reached Yuya, Yuto and Yugo's ears, they were LIVID at the fact that the girls were assaulted while they were gone and decided to befriend the Quintet as well. Yuri is a bit fascinated about Embryo, finding some commonalities with their own behaviours. But even he has limits when it comes to kidnapping someone, as Embryo did so for his self-indulgence while Yuri was Just Following Orders.
    • Vehemently opposes all brainwashing deities as the girls got brainwashed by an evil doctor with the Parasite Fusioner and the boys are forced to duel them in that state. Johan Liebert gets a special mention, as he can control someone's mind just by TALKING AND HITTING THEIR MENTAL WEAK SPOTS. Johan tries to get to them by getting to Yuri first, telling him they are not so different from each other and he can still be evil if he joins him. Yuri promptly responds by summoning Starve Venom Fusion Dragon and incinerate him to ashes. Basically, his way of saying, "Screw off." After reviving in the House of Health & Diseases, Johan vows he will END the counterparts, one way or another.
      • They are a bit ambivalent on Iroque, though. On one hand, she means well but on the other, brainwashing is equivalent to robbing anyone of their free will. Iroque assures them she goes after unrepentant people, which doesn't really calm them down. They get along better with the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, although their methods of entering Palaces and stealing people's desires is still morally questionable. The thieves are curious and a bit scared if the Parasite Fusioner becomes a legitimate threat in Mementos.
    • Also expressed their enmity of Monokuma and Junko Enoshima, as they not only get other people to kill each other in the name of despair, they even brainwashed an entire class and their teacher to make them fall into despair and become mindless pawns of despair which brings back unpleasant memories of the Dimensional War. Enoshima finds them to be perfect toys to play with, especially Yuri although Yuri has no intention of joining her.
    • The Trollkaigers tried to torture them the same way they tortured Kirito and Asuna; by separating Yuya and Yuzu with the counterparts stuck inside their bodies in two rooms. At first they got what they wanted with the two emotionally broken and crying out each other's names, but then... the boys ended up breaking out of their room by summoning their strongest forms of their dragons. WHILE IN THEIR AWAKENING STATE. The Trollkaigers get roasted alive one by one before the boys successfully rescue the girls. Since then, both parties involved are sworn enemies, with Terumi making sure they will have more worse emotional torture the next time around.
      • This incident led to the counterparts befriending Kirito and Asuna, who went through a similar ordeal, except they were powerless to fight back. After finding some other common ground, Yuya and Yuzu offered to defend them whenever they are offline and they accepted. Through them they also became aware of Nobuyuki Sugou, who advocates brainwashing and commited atrocites to ALO players for such, something they vehemently oppose. Sugou has heard of what they are capable of and the lengths they would go to dissuade brainwashing from their loved ones, deciding to lay low and not provoke them at the wrong time.
    • Only Yuya is capable enough to befriend Touko Fukawa due to her standoffish nature preventing the other counterparts from doing so. Fukawa finds him a lot similar to the Naegi siblings and thinks he is worth her time. The same cannot be said for Genocider Syo, who openly and cheerily expresses wanting to kill the Yu Boys had it not been for everyone watching over her. Only Yuri attempts to approach her and so far, they get along amicably and safely though Yuri draws his line on killing; he prefers to seal people in cards, thank you.
    • The counterparts also befriended Cliana Rimskaya, as she also shares a body with another personality. Liana is a bit jealous that the counterparts can have their own bodies while she and Chris are stuck in one (not that they don't mind).
    • Wander heard about the newcomers arriving and decided to befriend all of them. They warmly accept his friendship because he is THAT nice, while Yuri is a bit hesitant to take his hand. Wander says that he will never judge him for his past ever, which Yuri reluctantly accepts and shake his hand, becoming Yuri's first legitimate friend aside from the counterparts.
      Yuri: [shedding tears] A... A real friend...
      • This friendship also extends to his steed Sylvia. She is still keeping an eye on Yuri, despite Wander telling her he is harmless now.
    • The counterparts have met Gentaro Kisaragi AKA Kamen Rider Fourze, Ryusei Sakuta and the Kamen Rider Club, who got along with them swiftly. A party was thrown (by Pinkie Pie, no less) to celebrate their ascension together. Since then, the two groups have many misadventures, involving school, fighting bad guys or just good old hanging out somewhere. It also helps that Gentaro can tolerate Yuri's attitude (since JK was also a bit of a prick in the past) stating that, by befriending him, that means that someone accepts Yuri. This all ended with Gentaro giving his handshake to all eight of them.
    • As reiterated, a recurring problem for the counterparts is that they are constantly mistaken for each other in spite of having enough distinctive features and the knightly Saber Servant Artoria Pendragon confronted them on this issue one day. She did so because she also had that same problem when the Caster Servant Gilles de Rais mistaken her for Jeanne d'Arc even though they are also distinct, not to mention her endless number of alternate versions of herself and others who share her face currently summoned into Chaldea not helping her case. Both parties bonded over this predicament (as well as over their experiences in miserable wars) and Saber vows she'll be there if the counterparts will face a bigger threat.
    • Much to their dismay, there has been a number of villains who seek weaponize Z-arc or turn him into their ally. The Millenium Organization's Major think Z-arc is the perfect weapon to start another war, a thing that the counterparts don't want to relive. Nekron finds Z-arc's appetite for destruction born out of the desire to please his home dimension's twisted audience to be fitting for his ideals of a dead world and Master Xehanort feels that the plan to utilize the Yu Boys for Z-arc's second revival will be one of contingency, should his current ones fail. He also finds the Bracelet Girls valuable for his plans as well, which haunts them to no end. Although he does not seek his power seeing he is more powerful than Z-arc, Zamasu thinks he failed in destroying the ningen, boasting that he could do a better job than him.
      • Even Lucifer, the leader of the GUAC wanted in on Z-arc's power. He tries to coax the Yu Boys into joining him by appealing to their respective desires; they predictably declined and proceeded to tell him off, expressing that word-of-mouth and a first look at him is enough to turn them off, even though he used a non-threatening disguise. He walks off, thinking about another way to obtain Z-arc's power of destruction without a hitch.
  • Exclusive to the Standard Counterparts:
    • Yuya and Yuzu are inseparable, even more so after the Dimensional War. Others have noticed that they seem... WAY too devoted to each other. A betting pool has opened to see if they become something more, which embarass the two greatly.
      Yuya: [blushes] W-Why does everyone think we love each other...?
      Yuzu: [blushes] I-It's not like we think of each other a lot!
    • While comical and light-hearted, Yuya's cry of "Ladies and gentlemen!" also serves as his Pre Ass Kicking One Liner. Just because he's a showboat for the crowd doesn't mean he's not serious about winning, as opponents soon found out afterward. And Yuzu will always be there to see him smile while doing it.
    • They have met Yusuke Fujisaki and Hime Onizuka as the two pairs got along for two reasons. They even joined the latter for some misadventures around the Pantheon, be they weird or not.
    • They have also befriended Izuku Midoriya and Ochako Uraraka. The latter two noted how similar Yuya and Yuzu are to them, like giving mutual support, having unrequited feelings and similar colour palettes; they even throw in their full support once they heard about what happened during the Dimensional War. The four are seen hanging out very often like best friends, talking about other things like ideals and how to achieve them and growing up with hardships.
    • As they had to grow up while under distressing circumstances (Yuya even more so), Yuya and Yuzu visited Garrod & Tiffa for their experience in coming into their own adulthood. They exchanged stories and came out as friends, knowing that they can't stay being kids anymore or else the world will make you do so. Another pair they befriended are Cloud & Tifa who also grew up together in their own hometown and going through numerous ordeals that test their resolves; Yuya and Cloud got along over their respective self-doubts and overcoming them along with tragic reasons why they're the way they are and Yuzu and Tifa got along as they both are very devoted and protective of the boys they always take care of.
    • While exploring Elysium Academy, they both met Yuzuko Nonohara. Yuya is a bit sad that there are other people named Yuzu out there, though, Yuzu assures him that Yuzuko's name is a bit different. Yuzuko herself thinks they might be fun to be with and ask if she could learn Duel Monsters just to hang out with them. On the subject of similar names, Kazuya Minegishi thought his childhood friend Yuzu Tanikawa has ascended, but that is not the case. Kazuya finds Hiiragi to be a bit more subdued than the Yuzu he knows while the latter finds him quirky. Yuzu also met Kagami and Tsukasa Hiiragi and gets along with them regardless if they are related or not.
    • They are Sora Shiun'in's true best friends and Morality Pets that keep him from going too far. When they heard about the things he did in the Pantheon while they were not present, they were understandably disappointed. Sora said that he was not in his right mind, he was still carrying out Academia's orders and his bigotry towards Xyz duelists is forcefully ingrained to his brain. They may not fully forgive him, but he is still their friend regardless and woe to anyone who dares harm or falsely accuse either of them.
    • Due to having a similar name, Yuya really didn't know what to think of the surnameless Sora but they seem to get along just fine because both of them care about their friends. This also extends to his Pokemon partner, Gardevoir. Sora and Riku have also warned Yuya about Master Xehanort because of that inner darkness the tomato headed boy has. On another related note, Yuzu gets along with Kairi and her High Priestess, Serena for being Childhood Friends of their respective protagonists and holding on their own.
    • Yuya and Yuzu also met Makoto Naegi and Sayaka Maizono after their run-in with Enoshima. Yuya gets along with Naegi without a hitch, since they both wanted what was best for everybody (Yuya wants to make people smile and Naegi wants to bring hope to them). Yuzu is a bit hesitant with Maizono, because on one hand she seems pretty nice and loves her job as an Idol Singer but on the other, given the wrong circumstances, she will do irrational things like attempting to kill a fellow classmate and frame another for it, no matter the excuse. For now, Yuzu decides to play nice while not trying to get on her bad side.
    • Yuya gets along with the Kamen Riders, especially Tsukasa Kadoya and Kouta Kazuraba as well as the Gokaigers as they seem to have some similarities, even if many people will flip out if you mention Yuya being similar to the former in any way. Ironically, Yuya himself flipped out and screamed "YAMEROOO!!!" Translation  at Decade after seeing him using the Rider cards, believing that he "carded" his fellow Riders because of a misunderstanding. It took the combined effort of all of them to snap Yuya out of Awakening. note 
      • On a related note, Kouta feels a bit sad whenever he's around Yuya for his own personal reasons. The Entertainment Duelist could only imagine what he went through to ending up losing his friend.
      • Recently met the doctor Emu Hojo and swiftly gets along with him for valuing people's lives and wanting to protect their EGAO. Emu feels that Yuya's counterpart situation reminds him of the revelation that he and Parad were one and the same down to some similarities between Yuri and Parad. Yuya sympathized with Emu on the latter's situation; Masamune wanting to control the world through an augmented reality game while controlling data of human beings is nothing different from Jean-Michel Roger wanting to control the Synchro Dimension's City with a sinister fist.
    • Yuya occasionally performs in the House of Theater, often with his counterparts for Action Duels. He gets along with theatrical performers like Oscar Diggs, Krusty the Clown and Ronald Mc Donald, although Diggs' previous life of confidence artistry is something he does not approve of. He became enemies with Ludwig Von Tökkentäkker, due to him reminded Yuya of Dennis' evil phase and his Performages as well as causing fear in people by running a scary circus and Kefka Palazzo for being an irredeemable Monster Clown.
    • Yuya was surprised to find out that Harry Potter sounds just like him; he finds this amusing since he likes magicians, though Harry had to correct him that he wasn't a magician, he is a wizard. He also befriended his Pokemon partner, Charizard as he also sounds like that trainer of Mega Evolutions who also has a Charizard. The fact that Yuya likes dragons and can ride them too helps.
      • Speaking of, he was not happy to find out that this was also the case with Ren Hakuryuu. On one hand, he doesn't know what is worse: That he turned against his friends like Sora did or that endless desire of revenge Hakuryuu has, something makes him fear that he could end up as (especially if he got struck on Awakening). On the other, Hakuryuu actually turned good after an indefinite amount of time passed and his trials being triumphed. Hakuryuu himself finds him very naive, thinking that a world with smiles is impossible to happen which Yuya takes offense to that.
    • Yuya has a lot of respect for his adoptive father Yusho Sakaki even if he doesn't have the best methods at times yet still gave Yuya enough love. For this, he respects good fathers/paternal figures like Greg Universe, Professor Utonium and Bryan Mills who in turn can see that Yusho tried his best in raising a happy kid while condemning Relius Clover, Heihachi Mishima, and Professor Hojo for being terrible fathers that abused their families; Relius, Heihachi, and Hojo themselves disregard Yuya off but Hojo later changed his mind when he heard of Z-arc and he hopes to fit him into his own plans someday. Same goes for Heihachi when he heard of Z-arc and how his power reminds him of the Devil Gene and hopes to use him in his own plans to harness Z-arc's power for himself to counter Kazuya and Jin one day.
    • Aside from Kairi, Yuzu befriended other childhood friend love interests from the Battle Harem, like Houki Shinonono, Lingyin Huang and Irina Shidou. Houki and Lingyin are a bit jealous that Yuzu and Yuya don't need romance just to show each other how much they mean to them, prompting them to consider taking some time away from Ichika to see if he does care about them. As for Irina, Yuzu also bond with her over some nicknames that grinds their gears (Miss Strong for Yuzu and "self-proclaimed" for Irina).
    • Since she uses a Melodious deck, Yuzu gets along with the Suite Pretty Cures, especially Hibiki Hojo/Cure Melody and Sonia Strumm. Evil musicians like Courtney Gears and Ember McLain get on her bad side the moment she confronts them.
    • Yuzu also got into contact with Rin Tohsaka and her sister Sakura Matou, as she has Tsundere-ish tendecies like Tohsaka and pities Sakura's situation which is way worse than Yuya's. The sisters likewise also sympathized with Yuzu for going through an even worse war between dimensions, so they help her move on which she is flattered at. Sakura's situation also had Yuzu befriending Shiori Kurashiki who again is fated to destroy the world like Yuya had to and she hopes to help Shiori however she can to help her move on as a normal girl.
      • On a lighter note, everyone else noted Tohsaka and Yuzu started to act identically after they had a lot of outings, probably because they both have the same attitude towards their boys and similar outfits. Both girls got embarrassed by the comparison but are nonetheless glad that they have more common ground with each other.
    • For some odd reason, Yuya's followers always give him tomatoes as a form of tribute. Or perhaps not so odd. Yuzu keeps getting annoyed at the fact that the living room is flooded with them.
  • Exclusive to the Xyz Counterparts:
    • Yuto met another Kurosaki by the name of Ichigo. Ichigo thinks Yuto is gonna insult him much like Sora, but was surprised that Yuto is apologizing on Sora's behalf, which he accepts nonetheless. He also notes that Yuto's relationship with Ruri is a lot like his with Orihime except Ichigo and Orihime did get married at the end and gives Yuto some encouragement and best wishes, which Yuto nervously accepts.
    • With his deck being the Phantom Knights, he gets along with ghost-human hybrids Danny Phantom and Youmu Konpaku. Danny also warns him of Vlad Plasmius and Dark Danny, and Yuto makes sure he stays wary of them. From what Danny described, Dark Danny sounds frightening, debatably even more frightening than Z-arc.
      • Speaking of ghosts, Yuto meets the Kamen Riders Ghost, Specter and Necrom. Of course, Yuto really didn't die he just merged with Yuya and guides him along the way. Takeru is very reminiscent of Yuya, Makoto's protectiveness of his sister Kanon reminds him of his friend Shun Kurosaki with Ruri and was glad Alain defied his evil family, who are reminiscent of Academia's evil forces. He joins them in eating takoyaki whenever he's free.
    • Due to his vigilantist actions and mannerisms, Batman offers tutelage to Yuto, who politely declines since Batman has a lot in his hand. Yuto would appreciate his friendship instead. Garrus Vakarian is also another vigilante who took matters into their own hands and is their respective protagonist's partner for a long time and these traits help Yuto befriend him; Garrus feels bad when he heard that Yuto wasn't always ruthless before the Dimensional War and hopes to help move on as he himself also had the same problems until Shepard steps in to intervene.
    • Ruri explores the subhouse of Nice and Nasty for more people to talk to. Aside from Sora, she finds good company in Ventus, Miku Kohinata and Yutaka Kobayakawa, among others. Of course, others like Jin Kisaragi, Masato Kusaka and Libby Chessler rubs her the wrong way. Jin sounds like Dennis, who kidnapped her for the Professor, Kusaka's prejudice towards monsters regardless of alignment is too reminiscent of the Obelisk Force's bigotry towards Xyz Duelists and Libby is just unlikable to be with. Jin and Kusaka had to be dragged away after being offended by her remarks while Libby is too busy tormenting Sabrina to even care about Ruri.
      • On Miku's recommendation, Ruri meets Noel Vermillion. They get along quite well, with Noel reminding Ruri of Sayaka with their similar shy and unconfident demeanors and Noel finding Ruri another pleasant friend to talk to. Noel even offers to teach her how to shoot along her own mentor, Coyote Starrk, which Ruri says she will consider it soon.
    • Finds Altaria to be absolutely adorable even hugging the Pokemon once, because it reminds her of her Lyrical Lusciniae. Rise Kujikawa decided to befriend her as well since she is Altaria's Pokemon partner, even letting her in on flights and inviting her to singing sessions, which is funny since Ruri's seiyuu is also a singer.
  • Exclusive to the Synchro Counterparts:
    • Yugo doesn't like being called Fusion nor Pawn of Fusion as he doesn't like people getting his name wrong. Salamandinay sympathized with him as she hates it when people don't know how to pronounce her name. Yugo also finds it cool that she is part dragon, reminding him of Clear Wing Synchro Dragon, his ace card which flatters Sala.
    • Yugo also met Yosuke Hanamura as they find common ground in windy motifs, constant unluckiness and being a little juvenile when it comes to the ladies. Yosuke is so glad he found kinship with someone as unfortunate as him while Yugo is glad he is being taken seriously for once. You will find them being on the receiving end of many gods' attacks and jokes most of the time and Yosuke's sanity perfectly contrasts with Yugo's idiotic tendencies.
    • Besides Yosuke, there are also other Butt Monkeys that he befriended and sympathized like Axel, Almaz and Satania. Together, they try to find ways for people to take them seriously, with variable and hilarious results.
    • Has gotten along with both Beats. The one from TWEWY finds kinship with him since they don't use their heads often and the one from JSR sympathize with his impoverished background. Since then, he hangs out with them separately; although Rin has concerns they will be bad influences, she let it slide since Yugo is having fun with other people.
    • Rin hears that there are other Wrench Wenches and decided to pay them a visit. Winry Rockbell and Gadget Hackwrench are worth the visit as they exchange ideas and give tips on mechanics and machinery. Winry sympathizes with Rin much more because they both have been through war although with very different experiences and decided to be her listening ear whenever the rest of the counterparts are unavailable. As for Tabane Shinonono, well... on one hand, she made some pretty awesome stuff like Powered Armors and their cores, but on the other, she is rather eccentric for such a competent genius. Nevertheless, Rin feels it doesn't hurt to humor her, since she has experience with keeping Yugo behaving.
    • Rin is noted to have a distinguishable Idiot Hair. It may or may not be living. Yugo tries to tell everyone about this, but nobody believes him. On that note, Rin gets along with Nyarko, the patron saint of such. Rin likes her, though she feels Nyarko should tone down her energy every once in a while and stop giving relationship advice on her and Yugo.
    • As Rin's Wind Witches have ice powers, she got along with most ice users including but not limited to Ashe, Anivia, Asuka Hiiragi and Rion Kugayama. Rin is afraid that Ashe will get very chilly though Ashe assures her that she's very used to it and Rion's energy reminds her of Yugo, although she would really like it if Rion would stop teasing her about her relationship with Yugo.
    • One day, Rin was accused of saying mean things to a number of deities. She had no recollection of doing so until she heard of the recently ascended Malty S. Melromarc who used their shared voice to paint Rin in a bad light. After a fight ensuing between them with Rin barely able to win, Malty retreats while knowing the girl she impersonated is in misery; luckily for Rin, her friends are able to help clear up the confusions gradually.
  • Exclusive to the Fusion Counterparts:
    • Yuri decided to meet up with the Itazura Griefers after their recent prank on the Trollkaiger reminds him of his playful attitude towards his opponents. Vector is proud of his successor and invites him and Sora for ice cream and planning some pranks anytime. Adachi finds his insane attitude admirable and Takano and Monaca gets along with him for halting their evil behaviours in the end. Lambdadelta is a bit ambivalent on Yuri; carding people may sound funny, but it also causes despair in the Dimensional War, which she doesn't like one bit. Seija offers him a position as Itazura Violet, which Yuri will consider in the future.
    • Yuri also takes his time to visit the sub-house of Plants. Finds kinships in Durathror and Poison Ivy and befriended Audrey II and Petey Piranha for his Predaplant deck, though Yuri finds Petey rather annoying and stupid at times. He and Gourgeist are like peas in a pod and team up to screw with whoever they like, causing Trevenant to oppose him. Besides Trevenant, Kurama, the Heartcatch Pretty Cures (their problem also lies within the fact that he shares his name with one of their own), Shaymin and Treebeard expressed their enmity towards him for giving plants a bad reputation, and Aki volunteered to watch his behaviour out of a favour from Rin. Yuri has standards, believe it or not as Mordremoth and Exdeath gives him the creeps, Mordremoth especially being a living Hungry Jungle and an evil dragon, essentially making Starve Venom look tamer in comparison.
      • Out of all the residents there, he gets along with Flowey the best. Not only are they near irredeemable villains, but they also turn good at the end of their stories. This friendship also extends to his confidants, Frisk, Sans, (INH) and Monika. It also helps that Vector and Monaca are there. Sans will make sure these two will not step out of line once again.
    • Has been confused for the Literature Club's own Yuri several times. The latter thinks he is so crazy to the point that he makes Monika seem tame. The rest of the club agrees with her and take every step to stay away from the Fusion Duelist, who finds them not worth his time anyway. Though due to being Flowey's confidants together and that he's not evil anymore, Monika gives him some leeway. As for the dictating Yuri, the Fusion Duelist finds him unpleasant; sure he likes his vileness and tenacity to hurt others but his dictator-like methods remind him a bit of Professor Akaba and methods of psychic mind control reminds him of Academia's Herr Doktor, a person he'd rather not see. The psychic Yuri meanwhile sees value in the Fusion Duelist's prowess and hopes to effectively have him under control for his agenda of domination.
    • Same goes for Kazuya Mishima; while he likes his ruthlessness to hurt others and willingness to use the Devil Gene which reminds him of his own powers in his Awakening state as Z-ARC's fragment, he finds his arrogant, no-nonsense, cold, stoic demeanor to be overall unpleasant. The Cold-Blooded Oppressor dismisses Yuri, barely acknowledging the Fusion Duelist as a threat to him, seeing him as beneath him. Although he admits he finds Z-ARC's power within Yuri to be intriguing, considering to take it from him to claim it for himself if the need arises.
    • Serena had a run-in with Daidouji one day. Due to their usual attitudes, they got off on the wrong foot and a fight commences. It ended in a draw, but Daidouji finds Serena not so different from her and a Worthy Opponent to fight, while Serena finds Daidouji rather tame compared to her appearance. They both decided to keep in touch after that.
    • Other tomboyish girls Serena befriended are Maki Genryusai and Cana Alberona. Serena is a bit jealous of Cana for having a better relationship with her father unlike her own with Professor Leo Akaba, who acted distant to her and his despondency is the reason why she follows his orders; to gain his approval. The Card Mage is glad she outgrew this behaviour over time and even almost offered her a bottle of beer but Serena turned her down due to being underaged. As for Maki, she likes Serena for her feistiness and would have invited her in to her gang if she had the chance but those days are over for her; even if she have no desire to join a bosozoku, Serena still appreciates her time sparring with Maki regardless.
    • Her Lunalight deck pays Homage to Sailor Moon and sure enough, Serena gets to meet the heroine herself. Usagi at first comes across as ditzy and childish but later on, she showed Serena that she earned her top position, thus also earning her respect. Since the Lunalights also has Cat Girls, Serena also befriended Ichigo Momomiya AKA Mew Ichigo and Blake Belladonna. Serena even offered to beat up Adam Taurus for them, which flatters Ichigo yet she thinks it's a bit overboard while Blake says that if Adam needs a beatdown, Serena won't be alone for that.
    • Due to her deck archetype, she gets along well with Tyrande Whisperwind and Yuri Tsukikage AKA Cure Moonlight for drawing their power from the Moon and finds Lunatone to be interesting. Serena tells Cure Moonlight that the Fusion Dimension's Yuri will be handled carefully, which Moonlight agrees to count on her. The same cannot be said for David Zappa, who gives moons a bad name and Diana, who means well, yet ended up coming across as nuts. David thinks Serena is not worth his time while Diana tries to "persuade" her to see her perspective, which doesn't work.
    • One day when wandering around the House of Weapons' archery range, Serena happened to saw two women with one of them looking cat-like practising their archery skills; she approached them asking about the cat-like woman's appearance which right away, rubs her the wrong way. The other woman managed to break off the tension before it gets worse and convinced them to introduce themselves to compensate; after Serena introduced herself the two women did the same, revealing themselves to be Atalante and Artemis.
      • Atalante answers Serena's question regarding her cat-like appearance: it symbolises her punishment of turning into a lion for fornicating with Hippomenes in one of Zeus' temples which the former she admitted to not regretting, something that dismayed Artemis since hunters under her were supposed to be chaste and baffled Serena when she first heard it. Regardless, due to Artemis' association with the moon and Atalante's Servant appearance, Serena decides to take up archery under them in case her dueling is either unavailable or unusable.

  • Stanley Ipkiss was a complete pushover of a man. He had longed to find a way to release the superego that had been holding him back. One day, he found an antique mask and put it on. He was changed forever that day, as he gained a Superpowered Alter Ego completely reliant on his id. Thus the Mask was born, and he now resides in the Pantheon. Stanley is currently trying to use his abilities for good, though it is difficult to control his actions.
  • He once had a skirmish with Freakazoid! over who would take over the title. That ended when the latter decided to take up another title instead. The Mask waited until later in order to ascend himself. Nowadays, the two have wacky adventures together... to the detriment of all who stand in their way.
  • Despite being relatively unknown in the comics, he has appeared as a film and even an animated TV series. Stanley chalks it up as the desire of many to let loose.
  • Ipkiss once tried to get the Mask to apply to become an LOL Ranger. Unfortunately, the Mask saw Bugs Bunny as the ultimate toon rival. The subsequent prank fight tore through the entire House of Mentalism. Both Ipkiss and Bugs agreed to withhold his application until the former gets better at controlling his alter ego.
    • Both personas have no issues with trolling Trollkaiger. Terumi and co have struggled to keep up as The Mask's toonforce makes him impervious to nearly all pain.
  • With other factions failing to make a good impression with him, that left an opening for Lucifer. And he was glad to find a receptive partner in the Mask. With that said, Ipkiss has stated to want nothing to do with the archdevil. That would depend on how well he can control his alter ego.
  • There were many hilarious situations to be had when he met others that shared his avatar. He first suggested that Bruce Nolan wears his mask after gaining his godlike powers. That was immediately shut down by the entire Pantheon. No one wants to know what he would do with his powers and that insane mindset.
    • No one knows how, but The Mask handed Truman his entire recorded life in DVD and Blu-ray forms. Truman wasn't too excited about reliving his fake life, but appreciated the thought. Both Truman and Ipkiss share pity over their previous love lives.
  • Whenever The Mask decides to roam the pantheon as a cartoon, for some reason there are weirder encounters than usual, standouts being Yakko Warner and the Ninja Turtles (half of them find Stanley's voice close to their own!).
  • It's not that the Nostalgic Critic hates the Mask persona; he actually liked the first movie. But there was nothing that could justify the existence of Son of the Mask, even if it meant retroactively cancelling the original movie to do that. Ipkiss did promise never to put the mask on his son again.
  • Saw a huge opportunity in the form of Captain Underpants. He tried to find a more permanent solution for keeping the nasty principal Captain Underpants by using a hypnodisc himself. But when the school descended into chaos over the lack of a principal, George and Harold decided to stick with their original scheme.
  • Lobo was intrigued with the properties of the Mask. There was a time when he wore the instrument himself. No one in their right mind wants him to put it on again. There's no telling how much destruction he could cause, no to mention the fact that he would be even more unkillable.
    • That goes double for the Joker. The last time he got his hands on the Mask, Gotham ended up in ruins. And while Lobo is more likely to use the mask for personal gain, the Joker may well hand it over to Melkor, if not use it on his behalf. That's a nightmare scenario the Mask doesn't want to happen.
  • The biggest threat may well be from the GUAD. It was proven that he could wield the mask even as a zombie, as his deceased comic counterpart has proven. This means that Ipkiss is vulnerable from a Black Lantern Ring.
  • A well known horndog, the Mask can be seen hitting things up with the ladies in the subhouse of Lust after fighting crime. Ipkiss has done a better job of controlling those urges now that he's with Tina.
  • There is fear in the Pantheon that the Mask is susceptible to the Dip, given that a lot of his powers seemed toon based. Judge Doom is taking that into consideration and wants to try it out on him. The Mask for his part has done a good job avoiding him for now.
  • Deadpool was once sent to recover the mask, Big Head himself showed up and given his Toon Physics downright translate to "if the Mask doesn't want to get hurt, he won't", utterly humiliated the Merc with a Mouth, culminating in blowing him with a huge bomb. Though The Mask still sent Deadpool's Continuity Gem to Wiz and Boomstick to ensure his fellow jokester who abuses the fourth wall was revived.

  • Respected by: The Hall of Investigative Work
  • Conflicting Opinion: The Halls of Heirs & Impostors and Impersonations
  • Ange le Carré & Princess Charlotte- one of them is a pickpocket-turned-royalty-turned-spy, and the other is royalty-turned-pickpocket-turned-spy, and who is who is always a 50/50. Their nearly-matching looks extend far down to their childhood, and while that may not be as much of a factor now, they've learned, as spies, to disguise for many scenarios- especially when they need to masquerade as the other. Their constant swapping will have most confused at first, even those close to them in terms of relationship, and they'd rarely slip up in acting as the other. Their bond is strong, and so is their ability to be the other- among other factors- that made them some of the best spies in the Commonwealth of Albion.
  • Their ascension was rather interesting; as the heralds of Carmen & Juni Cortez, Team White Pidgeon spent much of their visiting time in the Pantheon surveying everyone and everything. They slowly gathered intel of the many deities across the Pantheon through all sorts of methods, honing their skills and talents while staying under the radar. And for a good amount of time, nobody really seemed to care- that is, until Ange was caught in a restricted area in the House of Knowledge, perusing some pretty scandalous facts about some of the more questionable deities. However, when her trial in the Court of the Gods was finally held, it went along rather swimmingly, that is, until just after the end of the trial, when Eiki Shiki was just leaving the Court, she spotted Princess & Ange...talking about how they narrowly got away with that switch. Loose lips sink ships, and that resulted in a retrial, where Princess was rightfully deemed guilty for invasion of privacy, and Ange for perjury. However, Eiki decided to be nice about it all, and instead of punishing them, the judge decided that an ascension is in order, as their swap had fooled pretty much everyone, and going over the duo's history, she settled on ascending them under the Identical Stranger trope.
    • While they aren't necessarily approving of their methods at first, the Spy Kids were more than happy to learn that their Heralds (or at least some of them) had finally made the jump to ascend as well. These feelings were reciprocated by the duo, who were glad to finally be on equal standing with the Cortez family after quite a while. They've now begun collaborating on some, albeit, minor but unique, espionage projects together, as a way for Ange & Princess to get a better view of the intricacies and members of the Pantheon.
  • Many are quite confused at first as to why Ange & Princess were ascended under their trope, so the duo asked anyone curious to meet up with them at the House of Costumes one time. When most of the Hall of Investigative Work arrived, they set up a little game- both of them would dress up and masquerade in the House's Vêtements Palace Illimité, and Ange would be carrying with her a gold card; whoever would find Ange, wins. After some time idly waiting, the duo exited the changing rooms and counted to 60 before the participants went after them, resulting in a frantic and tense game of cat-and-mouse across the department store. When Princess, disguised as Ange, was finally cornered by James Bond & Solid Snake, it is revealed to the two master agents that she wasn't Ange. As for Ange, as Princess, she was basically out of sight for the whole game, only revealing herself after a full hour of searching, with many coming to ask her for "Ange's" whereabouts. Needless to say, when the duo took off their wigs and Ange flashed the card, they were all in disbelief, and word of this spread quickly.
  • The Hall of Heirs are rather perplexed at the duo. To be more specific, it comes down to the fact that one of them is the actual heir to their kingdom (though she is not exactly first in line) but doesn't want to take the throne, while the other is one who grew up in poverty but constantly seeks it anyway. Add to this conundrum that one may be the other at any given moment, and you have a headscratcher that has kept this whole Hall guessing.
  • The Hall of Impostors and Impersonators, to put it lightly, are just bamboozled. Despite being an infamous Hall in the Pantheon for stealing identities and perfecting the art of impersonation, even they couldn't tell if Ange or Princess is one or the other when either person (or both) enters. This has put the duo on quite the spotlight, as one day, they could be having a very tense time with Doctor Doom over tea, and the next, rumors would spread that they had located where Justin Pin is and are in contact with him.
  • Switching with royalty is like clockwork for the duo, having been in each other's shoes for quite a while, so getting used to each other's lives has been nothing short of interesting for them. Dawn once also did this switch with someone named Princess Salvia, who wanted to partake in a Pokémon Contest with her Togekiss, so they agreed to be in each other's shoes for the day. However, they almost immediately deduced this as something Tom and Edward would be more affinized with, but they still respected Dawn's effort at keeping up her masquerade.
  • Cavorite had been a very important part of Ange & Charlotte's world and its development; the gravity-defying mineral allowed the rise of inventions like the airship and the C-ball, the latter of which Ange personally owns one of. H.G. Wells, the author for The First Men in the Moon, was surprised to learn that the duo had possession of such an object, and that they had hailed from a Steampunk world where it is in abundance and in practical use. In a mailed request, the duo took him on a tour through Albion to learn how Cavorite operated in their world, and the effects it had on its people and the world's progress; needless to say, he was more than impressed.
    Wells: To think that a world I have yet to hear of feels so much like one of my truly amazes me, deeply. I give you my thanks, ladies.
  • When Griffith heard that Princess ascended, he assumed it would be his Princess Charlotte, and rushed to locate the duo. While he was rather disappointed at first by who actually ascended, he did take a liking to Princess, which, given who he is and what he's done, she was rightfully unnerved. This made Ange incredibly angry at the deity, for even considering Princess as his own, and won't hesitate to put a bullet between his eyes. The duo have begun looking into ways into tearing down his good standing among other things in order for him to lose interest in them, and Princess especially.
  • The following apply to Ange specifically:
    • Ange is surprised to learn that there's another Ange in the Pantheon...who happens to be a former princess...who had her life turned upside down on a very impactful day...who then turned to a life of hardship and became a badass hardass, developing techniques in order to simply live...woah. They both even have a friend in the Pantheon named Charlotte! (Granted, The blonde Ange's Charlotte is not from the same world as she is, compared to the grey-haired one's) At that point, something had to happen, but instead, they both more than understood their respective situations and upbringings, and came to be friends over those many similarities. When seen together, the grey-haired Ange usually asks to be called by one of her aliases, Chloe or Alice, to avoid confusion.
    • If Ange is one thing, she is incredibly smart and attentive to detail, so much so that it's almost frightening. When she crossed paths with Sherlock Holmes one afternoon, a simple bit of exchanged glances between the duo had given them ample time to basically know everything they've done that day, up to that point. What Ange did not expect, however, was that Holmes would greet her as Princess Charlotte, her actual identity, and nearly resulted in the young spy drawing her revolver against the world-renowned detective. Since then, Ange has calmed down and became friends with him, sometimes tagging along (and usually in disguise) with Holmes and his own assistant, Watson.
    • Operation: Changeling was a plan originally proposed by Ange to Control, meant at face value to eliminate Princess and take hold of the Commonwealth's crown, but was actually a coy so that Ange, who is actually Princess Charlotte herself, regain the crown and move to make the Commonwealth a better place. Daji, a master at impersonating dead people, is secretly trying to get Ange to pull through with this operation, however, given that Ange can act as Princess very, very well. Ange vehemently denies any advance the demon makes, however, as that would completely go against what the duo had been building up to ever since their separation.
  • The following apply to Princess specifically:
    • Despite being a member of royalty, Princess has more than her fair share of getting down and dirty if the situation calls for it, employing ruthlessness in her attitude and maybe abusing her status as royalty to get her other teammates into locations they normally cannot. Her sharp wit and quick cunning being well hidden behind her façade has earned her a kindred spirit with Lacus Clyne, a fellow princess with badassery underneath. They do tend to disagree on a few things- Princess isn't above using underhanded tactics and violence when it is really necessary, whilst Clyne is more of a pacifist and would like to solve problems without making more of them down the line.
    • Armed with The Promise that she would change the world into a happy one, one the real Princess wished for, Princess works tirelessly within the confines of her royal status to upend it and make the world a better place. This sentiment was shared with Rise Rousenin, who also wanted change, in the form of turning her school into a co-ed school in order for it to continue prospering. However, both were very much mixed in each other's views- Princess believes that Rise hadn't expanded her scope wide enough as she thinks there's other factors beyond it itself causing its downfall, whereas Rise criticizes Princess for taking her plans for reformation too far and deep, resorting to nearly cruel and very harsh tactics. Aside from these debates, however, they seem to be amicable enough as friends.
    • One day, on the way to their temple from exploring the many stores in the House of Costumes, Princess found herself face-to-face with Ange…who she thought was investigating a matter with Holmes and Watson that day. “Ange” explained that the case was wrapped up early, and with Princess always placing trust in Ange, she followed her…into the Hall of BodilyForm, where “Ange” proceeded to transform into Queen Chrysalis, and more than ready to feed off the love Princess gives off for Ange. Thankfully, there was truth in Chrysalis-Ange’s previous statement, as the master spy suddenly leaped out of nowhere alongside the rest of Team White Pidgeon and an esper named Sumireko Usami to drive away the alicorn and save Princess. Since then, the spy group and Princess in particular share a very specific kind of hatred for the alicorn, one that Chrysalis only scoffs at, not giving a care.

  • Demigoddess
  • Theme Song: 嘘つき女王 ~la reine du menteur!!~
  • Symbol: A miniature of a castle with vampire-cosplaying manservants greeting at gate
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil if pushed far enough, otherwise True Neutral, though she will insist otherwise
  • Portfolio: Gambling & Poker Face, Believing Their Own Lies, Going From Calm Cute to Batshit Angry in Seconds, 'Gendo Pose' While Smiling, Stepford Smiler, Hating Old, Plain Self, Elegant Gothic Lolita, Graceful Loser, Facing Death With Dignity (Or at Least Attempting To), Lack of Empathy,
  • Domains: Lies, Luck, Gambling
  • Allies: Revolver Ocelot, Monomi/Usami
  • Just Acquaintances with: Iroh, Judai Yuki, Margaret Moonlight
  • Enemies (AKA those designated with 'Rank F'): Monokuma, Yuuki Terumi, Honoka Kosaka.
  • Worthy Opponents: Keiichi Maebara, Tsumugi Shirogane.
  • Was once thought to perish during the High School of Mutual Killing, but in truth, Celes was saved in the nick of time by Ocelot, who's impressed with the way she lies through everything and considered making her an apprentice by deifying her. Out of gratitude, Celes accepted. She did grew to hate Monokuma for real for nearly destroying her grand death.
  • Her other title shows that in time, Celes is the go-to Goddess for those who are tired with their old identity and wishes to shape a new identity. She'll be there to teach everything to do for such thing.
  • Although she was a victim of the High School of Mutual Killing, Celes is not viewed with much positive light aside of a select few, as they were aware from the High School of Mutual Killing that if it fits her, she'd manipulate and murder some people she deems fit, all without any tinge of empathy. Celes doesn't deny such facts, treating them with stride, it's the way she is, and at least, in her opinion, better than the overly plain Taeko Yasuhiro.
    • That being said, despite being 'condemned' to the execution by Makoto Naegi, Celes never held any ill-wills on him. To her, her condemnation just meant that she lost in a fair match with Naegi.
  • Challenged upcoming God, Keiichi Maebara in a "Convincing contest", when she found that Keiichi was known as the "Magician of Words". The two went on a complete debate with Celestia's lies and Keiichi's charm coming head to head, until Keiichi somehow convinced Celes to let him win. When Celes realized what he did, she congratulated him on being beaten at her own game. She gave him the suggestion for apprenticeship under Revolver Ocelot, but Keiichi declined, but is always ready to thrown down another "Convincing Contest" over tea. Celes smiled in response.
  • A lot will say that she is the Evil Counterpart of Hikaru Shidou in the Magic and Sorcery house. Where Hikaru is brimmed with positive thoughts, hope and Hot-Blooded; Celes is pretty dark and manipulative. But she wouldn't even use her similar voice with her to fool people.
  • Is known as one of the greatest gamblers in the Pantheon. The reason why she didn't take The Gambler throne was because someone damn lucky can still beat her... like Naegi, Komaeda, or Kyosuke Nanbu.
  • Is known to get extremely pissed off if she's served with tea wrongly. Thankfully, she always got the tea she liked from Iroh. And just like every other God out there, Celes dreads the time when Excalibur visits.
    • She has also made a tea drinking friend with Margaret Moonlight. She is also one of the few gods that she will accept a target from for free, due to their calm and pleasant demeanor when not fighting anyone.
  • Naturally, due to her title, Terumi tried to goad her 'nicely' into shaping that the 'lies' she enthralled should include 'everything else' and the only truth being 'despair'. Contrary to what everyone expects, Celes goes nuts, scolding Terumi far harsher than how she got mad over tea or being exposed as a murderer and tells him that a being like him instantly Rank Fnote , especially when Terumi insinuates that she's not so different from him. She only got away with it because Terumi had to keep up his Hazama charade.
  • Is aware that she shares the same name as one of the Co-Goddesses of Winged Unicorns and the Goddess of Guilt and Unintended Large-Scale Consequences.
  • She recently helped Ocelot in his scheme for the fall of Relius by convincing Litchi Faye-Ling to not fully support him. The plan was a success, and Celes' reasoning to help? Since Relius is Terumi's friend and Terumi is the master of Monokuma, she considers the act being her middle finger.
    • While it wasn't known for real, some has sensed that Celes has a demonic hellspawn voice when trying to convince Litchi. While it didn't faze the latter, it did convince Litchi that Celes was pretty serious on that thing and decided to give her idea a shot.
  • Her other name is apparently Thebumphor, said to be an actual creature of hell. In this form there has been rumors that she's going out with... Scorpion.
  • When she heard that a god of Lucky Draws had ascended into the Pantheon, she quickly tried to challenge him to see if his luck was really that good to ascended but was disappointed that it turned out that Judai Yuki didn't actually know how to play poker They have decided to postpone it since Judai really doesn't like to turn down from a challenge. Though his first attempts at playing other card games did leave her with... quite the impression, to say the least... He couldn't even play Yahtzee without completely derailing the whole game.
  • Upon hearing of how an enemy of Monokuma not only ascended, but also that she was willing to speak on her behalf that she's not as evil as she claims to be, Celestia pulled the white rabbit aside and insisted that if they want to see her as evil, that's fine by her as she likes that view better than just being seen as another regular person, but she also thanked her for trying to improve how she was portrayed. Regardless, Celestia still has given Usami her support with making sure that Monokuma and his mastermind don't do anything problematic.

  • Conflicting Opinion: Nagito Komaeda, Monaca Towa, Tohru Adachi (Izuru only)
  • Enemies: Junko Enoshima and Monokuma, Tsumugi Shirogane, Tohru Adachi (Hajime only), people with god complexes, all corrupt authority figures
  • The two have a rather shocking tale: Hajime, who long desired to be special, volunteered for a project that would make him so. But the cost was erasing his personality, with the new persona being christened Izuru. The pair earned their places in the pantheon after Izuru set up the killing school trip, wherein he reverted to Hajime, who rallied the other students, helped to defeat Junko Enoshima, and returned the SHSL Despairs to their ordinary selves.
  • Hajime was very surprised to learn he’d ascended, considering himself just an ordinary and uninteresting “scrub”. Izuru, on the other hand, treated his ascension the same way he treats everything else—with a dry “how boring”. The only thing that perked him up a little was noticing that Human Chiaki had also ascended.
  • It was originally thought that Izuru was a violent Serial Killer out to destroy the world in the name of despair after Junko Enoshima broke his spirit. It was later discovered that he was only loosely affiliated with her, didn’t commit or was framed for many of the atrocities associated with him, and turned on her as soon as she wronged him by executing a certain gamer. That said, he’s still hardly a nice person and creeps most of the other deities out by virtue of being utterly impossible to read.
    • Due to this, the Future Foundation members watching Hajime to ensure he doesn’t relapse have relaxed a bit, as while Izuru isn’t harmless, he rarely acts unless provoked. So they don’t consider him as much of a threat anymore.
  • Their situation, that of being two separate personalities in the same body, isn’t a first for their franchise. But unlike Toko Fukawa, who can change her personalities with certain triggers, the two of them did not originally exist at the same time, nor could they switch—Izuru was only created when Hajime was erased, and Hajime only returned when Izuru stepped back.
    • After waking up from the Neo World Program, they found themselves reaching an accord and now share their body in harmony. Hajime seems to be controlling their body most of the time, but it’s implied Izuru is still in there, which accounts for how he can coexist with and take control from him in the pantheon.
  • They were both very happy to see Human Chiaki again, and had a rather sweet reunion. She was briefly confused upon seeing Izuru, having met him before but not gotten any answers on his situation with Hajime; once it was explained, she happily welcomed him with open arms as well. Now they spend a lot of time in the Gaming Pantheon with her, as she’s the one thing the two of them can agree on liking.
  • Hajime isn't exactly sure what to think of Nagito Komaeda. Was he justified in trying to kill everyone? Were they really friends? How much of what he says about himself is true? Does he really have a disease that's eating away at his brain and causing him to act the way he is? They seem to be getting along better after a while though.
    • Izuru’s opinion on Nagito is much more straightforward—“he’s boring”. He does seem a bit wary of him, though, having seen that while his luck can counter Nagito’s, Nagito’s is still incredibly volatile and dangerous.
  • Both Hajime and Izuru were very displeased to find that Junko had ascended, given her very long list of crimes against both the world and them as individuals. However, they know that there’s pretty much nothing they can do to pay her back, since she takes pleasure even in losing, so they just try to ignore her.
  • Hajime formally asked for forgiveness from Usami upon hearing of her ascension, and thanked her for defeating AI Junko. He also finally got to thank AI Chiaki for everything she’d done.
  • Due to the fact that they sound identical, Hajime gets along well with Narukami, Cecil, and Ichigo. He also really dislikes Adachi for being, in his words, “a nightmarish cross between Izuru and Junko”.
    • While Hajime just straight-up dislikes Adachi, Izuru’s relationship with him is more complicated. He does understand being utterly bored with the world; however, Adachi’s sociopathic and manipulative tendencies remind him too much of Junko for him to truly say he likes him. Adachi, meanwhile, often tries to convince Izuru to join him in livening up the world by killing. Most are reassured that Izuru, having tried that before and found it boring, probably won’t be taking him up on that offer.
  • Hajime also ended up becoming friends with Junpei Iori and Takumi Inui, as he understands the former’s desire to be special all too well and the latter’s identity crisis as a result of having split personalities.
  • One thing both of them have in common is being a source of many memes. Neither is exactly proud of this.
  • Can also be found in Psyches.

    Professor Julius Kelp and Professor Sherman Klump

  • Theme Songs:
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (for both Kelp and Klump); Chaotic Neutral (for both Buddy Love personas)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Science, Split Personality, Potions, Weight (for Klump)
  • Heralds:
    • Kelp: Stella Purdy (his student turned wife)
    • Klump: Carla Purty, Jason (Klump’s assistant), Denise Gains, The other members of the Klump family
  • Allies: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Stanley Ipkiss/The Mask, Billy Batson/Shazam, Yugi Muto and Yami Yugi, Chihiro Fujisaki, Dexter, Steve Urkel, Professor Utonium, Jimmy Neutron, Ludwig von Drake, Wii Fit Trainer (for Klump only)
  • Enemies: Biff Tannen, Zonda, Nobuyki Sugou
  • Under watch by: Severus Snape
  • Interested Parties: Oberon, Titania, and Puck, Anzu Mazaki/Tea Gardner
  • Nerd. Milquetoast. Klutz. These are just three of the many undesirable words that can be used to describe Julius Kelp, a chemistry professor at Matthews College. His science experiments lead to disaster and he often gets pushed around by other students, particularly those who are football players. One of his students whom he has a crush on, an attractive blonde named Stella Purdy, encouraged him to stand up to them, but this eventually led to him creating a potion that allowed him to transform into a suave, handsome, but rude swinger named Buddy Love. However, it has a side effect in which he can’t control when he reverts back to Kelp. Ultimately, his persona was revealed to be a fake in front of a crowd when the formula wore off. He then learned an important lesson about being yourself and ultimately got the girl by being genuine.
    • Sherman Klump, a brilliant and obese scientist, pretty much follows the same beats as Kelp’s story. However, Klump’s potion was meant to be a solution for weight-loss. When he decided to test it for himself after his date with Carla Purty goes badly, he would transform from a nice, overweight professor to an obnoxiously self-assertive braggart who, like with Kelp’s alter ego, calls himself Buddy Love. What makes his Buddy Love different from Kelp’s one is that he became a completely separate persona who plans to take over Sherman’s life, but ultimately, Sherman got rid of him after disposing of the potion. Years later, Klump would cross paths with Buddy Love again, this time separated from Sherman's body in an experiment involving an attempt to reverse aging, and gaining his own body after a mishap involving a dog. However, removing Love from his DNA ended up deteriorating his brain, but Klump would end up regaining his intelligence after reabsorbing Buddy.
  • Both of their stories have attracted the attention of the Main House, but there were some disagreements on who to ascend first. Some of the members preferred Kelp because he’s the original while others preferred Klump because he’s arguably the first of the two that pops up in their minds. Eventually, they have come to a settlement that they’ll have both of them share the trope of Sexier Alter Ego, as they equally viewed them as perfect examples of that trope. Their arrival in the Pantheon also marks the first time that they actually met, so it took awhile for them to get acquainted with each other. For the most part, Kelp likes Klump fine (though he sometimes gets annoyed with the latter’s fat and fart jokes), and the two make a decent Fat and Skinny duo (at least as their normal selves). And since their alter egos share the same name, let’s refer to them as “Kelp’s Buddy” and “Klump’s Buddy” respectively.
  • Their tales can be seen as comedic takes on the classic Jekyll-and-Hyde story, so it’s inevitable that they would meet up with the good doctor himself. Dr. Jekyll felt sorry for both of them since their unattractive appearances led them to create elixirs that led them to unleash their alter egos, though he also appreciates the fact that they were able to overcome them. They also get along with Stanley Ipkiss aka The Mask who has some empathy towards them, as like them, he also had experience in changing into a more confident, impulsive alter ego partially to impress a girl that he likes (though in Stanley’s case, he uses his mask to transform). And just like Kelp and Klump with their potions, Stanley ultimately didn’t need the mask to win over his love interest.
    • Additionally, the two are curious about Billy Batson and Zonda as they also have sexier alter egos thanks to their respective powers as otherwise they're just kids, wondering how they could obtain them without any scientific means. While they are fine with Billy, they are a little freaked out with Zonda and her aim to Kill All Humans as her case plays a part in people thinking she was dead as the older male form of hers that was "slain" was actually an illusory construct created by her. And then there’s Nobuyuki Suguo, whom they are both disgusted with, as they found his alter ego to be more sadistic than their own.
    • They also found themselves relating with the Yami Yugi and Yugi Muto given that they have a similar situation regarding their alternate personas. While the two Yugis don't really switch with each other through a potion, they do have that dilemma of "the other me is hotter." For some reason, this situation brought the interest of Anzu Mazaki, who is somehow drawn into the two professors’ Buddy Love personas.
  • Both professors serve as science teachers at the Elysium Academy, with Kelp specializing in chemistry and Klump specializing in genetics. Klump even established a new research facility for some students interested in science to take part of. Among such students that take a liking to both teachers, they include Dexter, Jimmy Neutron, Steve Urkel, among many others. They are especially surprised with not only how Dexter and Jimmy's intelligences are pretty much on par with their own, but also how they are capable of performing their own science experiments. Severus Snape has to keep an eye on them, however, in case of a chemical experiment gone wrong or if Klump’s horde of escaped lab hamsters overrun the campus. That, and he would find himself scoffing at a muggle’s attempt to create a potion.
    • Regarding their interactions with other scientists and professors, they do have some respect for Professor Utonium, as they felt that his experiments have shown capability for good (in Utonium’s case, a trio of superpowered girls). In their spare time, they also hang out with Ludwig von Drake, discussing their knowledge on science. Kelp especially finds the duck’s Absent-Minded Professor mindset to be similar to his own.
    • Unfortunately, they (Kelp especially) also found themselves sometimes getting bullied by Biff Tannen. It’s situations like these that made them want to use their potions again so that they can get back at him.
  • Not surprisingly, there are several deities who are interested in obtaining the Buddy Love potions. For instance, Chihiro Fujisaki considered obtaining the potions, but ultimately decided against it just to be better himself, which both professors respected. Even without accounting for the side-effects of the alter ego being a lot less pleasant than the original, using it would just be like running away from being who he is and would rather just work toward what he wants instead.
    • Oberon (not the same one as Nobuyki Sugou), Titania, and Puck also appear to show interest in their Buddy Love potions as they find them similar to the magical flower they gave to the mortals back in their world. One time, the fairy king instructed Puck to obtain some extra bottles of the elixir while they were sleeping. He then proceeded to slip some of the potion into a drink of an innocent quasideity, causing that person to turn into a Buddy Love-type person that tries to flirt with various female deities. Needles to say, the two professors are annoyed upon hearing about this.
  • While Professor Kelp has tried to move on to other experiments, there are times he found himself transformed into Buddy again (likely caused by his wife who fed him one of the two bottles of his formula that she kept). Usually, Kelp’s Buddy can be seen in the House of Music, performing songs like his rendition of “That Old Black Magic.” Other times, he can be seen in the House of Alcohol, insisting bartenders like Moe Szyslak or Tapper to make him an Alaskan Polar Bear Heater drink, prompting other alcoholics in the house to try that drink.
    • Reportedly, Kelp also has a grandson named Harold who rediscovered his recipe for the potion, and unleashed his own alter ego who calls himself Jack. Very rarely does he talk about these incidents, though.
  • In his spare time, Sherman can be seen exercising in the House of Sports in an attempt to stay fit without the need of his Buddy Love potion. He can also be seen participating in several of the Wii Fit Trainers’ exercising programs, much to their surprise and approval. Kelp, on the other hand, felt that training in the gym isn’t right for him, given his previous experience going there.
  • They can also be found in Physical Attractiveness.

    Rory Pond/Williams 
Rory Williams Pond, God of Wrestling With Multiple Identities (Rory Arthur Williams, Rory the Roman, The Last Centurion, The Man Who Waited)
  • Demigod (Lesser God in his Auton incarnation)
  • Symbol: The uniform of a Roman centurion
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Undying Loyalty to love, Those who choose to The Slow Path resulting in a Double Consciousness, Came Back From Being Deleted From History, Doesn't Need Powers To Kick Ass, Dogged Nice Guys, being uncomfortably death-prone, Shrouded in Myth, Henpecked Husbandry, Taking a level in badass, Was Amy's Childhood Friend
  • Domains: Courage, Love, Time, Loyalty
  • Allies: Amelia Pond, (his wife) The Doctor (his son in law), River Song (his daughter), Kenny McCormick, Neville Longbottom, George McFly, Philip J Fry, Lars Fillmore, The Green Lantern Corps, James Henry Trotter, Android 21
  • On good terms with: Benevolent members of the Healers and Physicians sub-houses
  • Enemies: Most evil Doctor Who deities but especially The Daleks, Cybermen, Nestene Consciousness and above all The Weeping Angels, SCP-173, Lord English, Pennywise, Dr. Jonathan Crane, Nazis, Fabius Bile
  • Sympathy for the Devil towards: Prince Asterion
  • Avoided by: The Bogeyman
  • Rory Williams, or Pond if you prefer, was the fiance of Amy Pond. When she tried to seduce the Doctor the night before her wedding, he decided it'd be best to bring Rory along and sort out their relationship. Ultimately it worked, and the two became a strong couple. Rory has remained dedicated to her, and a friend of the Doctor. However he's also the first one to call out his less ethical actions.
  • Ascended to divinity as a reward for spending close to two thousand years as a robot guarding his comatose love from death...initially. However Rory later got the trope of Double Consciousness as there is a fair amount of mental overlap between the his main timeline self and his experiences as The Last Centurion. The Nestene Consciousness was intrigued to learning about this Alternate Timeline, and hopes to somehow bring out this Auton incarnation, perhaps even finding a way to control humans. Fortunately there's been no progress in that.
  • He can compartmentalize his memories and identities quite well but it is still kind of a big deal. His empathetic nature has Rory sympathize with those who have to deal with conflicting identity and memories, which is why he's trying to help Android 21 out. Unfortunately for Rory his time in the Hall of Recollection and Amnesia got the attention of Szilard Quates, who plans to make him immortal in order to feed off nearly two millennia of memories. He considers it a test of his appetite before going after the Doctor him/herself, as he wants to make sure his eyes aren't bigger than his stomach.
  • Is known to spend a great deal of time with Kenny, who has a heroic heart and apparent immortality, though Rory eventually died for good...of old age after a satisfying life. He has also been seen comparing heroic exploits with Neville Longbottom and comiserating over the fact that if THEY were the main character, evil would have been wiped out three seasons ago. Despite his kinship with Kenny, he does get a bit annoyed he keeps talking about how hot Amy is, or River considering she's his daughter.
  • Was absolutely happy to find his wife in the Pantheon, and the two reunited with a hug. River joined in, making them one big happy family. And despite the snark between him and The Doctor, the two place great trust with another. Many people make a lot of jokes on how the Doctor's Nurse is just as badass. This led for a time people to claim Rory was the new Chuck Norris, due to his impressive Character Development. He even punched out Hitler and put him in the closet like it was nothing, enraging the Nazis in the pantheon.
  • Amy used to think Rory was gay before admitting his feelings to her, as he never showed interest in any other girl. In reality, he never showed interest in any other person in a romantic fashion. He was willing to kiss her when she was in the Doctor's body, but the Doctor was back in it and Amy didn't have a problem with it. He doesn't mind two time-displaced Amys.
  • An incredibly courageous man, due to all the stuff he had to put up he no longer feels any fear which made him useless to the Minotaur using fear to evoke worship it can feed off. He isn't frightened by the OG Minotaur either, who while villainous he has some pity for due to his situation. Pennywise, already having trouble with adults' more developed fears, is powerless against him. He also has some immunity to Scarecrow's fear gas, as he's Seen It All and was able to walk through visions of Amy dying...not that it doesn't mean he doesn't deeply care about her. The Bogeyman realizes he probably shouldn't bother trying to get fear out of him.
  • The courage Rory has shown led a Green Lantern Corps ring finding him. Approached by the Corps, he respectfully turned down membership as he has his own role as a nurse and as a hero to his family. However he did get a temporary ring that can be used for 24 hours, which he's put away for a rainy day in case he needs to "deputize" himself. He plans to share it with James Henry Trotter, as he respects the kid for growing out of his fears and being a kind boy in general.
  • Out of all the threats he has faced with the Doctor in his life, he has the most ire for the Weeping Angels due to threatening his personhood and technically killing him and Amy, and definitively separating him from the Doctor. The ire is spread to SCP-173, who is functionally very similar to the Angels and while not sadistic or hungry still wants to kill people that don't look at it. Rory is also at odds with Lord English much like the Doctor, who can even create cracks in time. Still, badass as Rory is he knows he doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell in actually fighting English.
  • Rory has plenty of reason to hate the Silent Priests, however they are at an armistice due to informing him the ones who antagonized his family and stole his daughter are a Renegade Splinter Faction they've cut all ties with. He doesn't trust them, but they are at least trying to compensate him.
  • Yes, he is a male nurse. It doesn't make him any less badass, and he continues his job in the House of Health and Diseases. Sometimes Rory hangs out with Philip J Fry and Lars Fillmore, who are similar to him in being time travelers who have improved themselves over time for the woman they love, though Lars is the more level-headed one due to being a more mature Fry.
  • Booster Gold is wondering if he's related to Rip Hunter. Rory asks "I dunno, are you?" Unknown either he is (at least in the comics), meaning they both have more experienced time travelling children.

  • Odd Friendship: Drizzt Do'Urden and Artemis Entreri
  • Special Relationship: Dr. Octavius, Betsy Ross/ Psylocke, D.W. (Anna)
  • It was a bit of a mess for the Council of the Gods to handle. The title itself has been undergone with several deities over the decades, but it has been codified by one franchise. The problem? There is simply too many different versions of the characters to pick them all. It was an intense argument featuring many of the various characters. In the end, it was decided that the Coleman version of the characters would be the one chosen for the roles due to having the biggest cultural impact of the films. While disappointed that their brethren could not ascend alongside them, the two decided to give their other versions herald status to represent the various versions of the characters.
  • Many in the Pantheon have attributed their plight to one named Early Hickey. He confirmed this theory soon after their ascension as a way to reconcile with their ordeal. The two were initially distraught... but ended up hugging the man, thanking him for helping them understand the other's life in a different perspective.
  • Both agree in one thing: never open a fortune cookie ever again. The two have even ventured into the House of Food in order to track down the person who gave them the cookie in the first place. She has not been spotted as of yet, but the two are wary of any future shenanigans.
  • Abed was one of the first people to find the two (given that he knows things, it wasn't much of a surprise) in order to discuss his own adventure of a swap with his best friend Troy. Unlike many other swaps, Abed was thankful for the ordeal, namely for proving him right that Troy and Britta couldn't maintain a relationship. Many contested whether the two truly had a "Freaky Friday" Flip, but the mother and daughter have been coy about whether it truly happened.
  • Happens so often in comic books that the two made a list of examples just to track down two had their bodies swapped. Doctor Doom himself has perfected the art of switch bodies with other people. As such he has no use for Anna and Tess. Instead, he would prefer the two to be eliminated in order to prevent them from switching him back.
    • One of the most dramatic cases was the one involving Peter Parker and Dr. Octavius. After driving Parker from his own body, he hid his activities and became the Superior Spider-Man. As with many things in fiction it didn't stick, but in a rare twist, he managed to create a new body out of a clone and claimed it as his own. He personally thanked the duo for his revival, though the two have been slow to accept his thanks.
    • Psylocke serves as one of the few permanent examples of a swap. She sought help from the two in order to help cure her predicament. The two agreed to help out. Shortly afterwards, Psylocke managed to recreate her original body. Not only that, her host Kwannon was back with her own body as well. The two thanked Anna and Tess for bringing them back in order.
  • All three Halliwell sisters have experienced a swap, whether it was between Phoebe and Paige or with Piper and her husband Leo. None of the three would call them pleasant experiences.
  • The two received a pointed letter of disapproval from Jimmy Neutron, suspecting they played a role with messing with one of his inventions. During the incident, he switched bodies with rival Cindy. The resulting mayhem messed with both of their livelihoods in the process. There was also one issue involving a memory that implied that he actually likes her. Anna came over to discuss the last part, stating he should at least talk to her about this development. To which Jimmy concluded that they implanted the memory to try and get the two together. Both are convinced the other created that memory.
  • Crichton on the other hand quite enjoyed his time in his future wife's body. Aeryn herself less so. In fact, she demanded that the incident to be kept to a minimum. The two have a long history dealing with spouses awkwardly handling body switches. The two are thankful to this day they didn't have to experience life in a different gender.
  • Dr. Drakken took claim as one of the few beings in the Pantheon who managed to learn how to swap bodies by himself. While he failed to do any good with it, he did see an opportunity to increase his chances of success. He had the two kidnapped by Shego in order to siphon their power in an attempt to grant him the power to switch bodies with people at will. Thankfully, the ploy was thwarted by Kim and Ron. Regardless, they were not a fan with the time they switched bodies with themselves.
  • Perry was better off at his own switch with the non-ascended Candace. It took a bit to get used to the body, but he ended up using the body effectively. His exploits was so popular he even got a theme song out of it. Still, the two expect to hear an earful once Candace ascends.
  • Xena has a lot of experience dealing with swapped identities, first with her Arch-Enemy Callisto and then with a couple other people. While the situation was annoying, she does not harbor any bad will against the two unlike many of their victims.
  • It's one thing to switch bodies with someone you hate. It's an entirely different situation when you switch with someone you have fallen in love with. Such was the case of Taki and Mitsuha when they switched bodies with one another. Unlike many other cases, the two Hooked Up Afterwards and have been a couple ever since. They were excited to find someone who underwent the same situation and invited them over to chat.
  • Tess was initially dismissive of Anna's pleas against her English teacher. It was the switch that proved that the harshness towards her daughter had a more personal reason. After their ascension, the two found out that the teacher made a bargain with none other than Agatha Trunchbull herself to help him target her. Incensed, the two attempted to confront her, but other good-aligned deities adviced against it, stating that they didn't stand a chance against that brute of a teacher.
  • Exclusive to Anna:
    • Anna can be seen stringing her guitar in the House of Music. While without her band in the Pantheon, she remains an effective singer on her own. It's there that she was flabbergasted at the sheer amount of talent that reside there, including a number of historic figures she knows about. While she admits some of the players are cute, she remains committed to her boyfriend.
    • Speaking of which, Jake is allowed limited access to the Pantheon as permitted by her mother. He doesn't have any herald status himself, but often helps her with any chores that may need to be done. Despite his dour appearance, he is a sweet guy and remains committed to Anna.
    • Libby Chessler went on the record to confirm what both Tess and Anna has suspected; Anna's former best friend Stacey came across Libby with hopes of achieving popularity in her school. The Alpha Bitch granted that wish, all while abandoning Anna in the process. Tess in Anna's body failed to convince Stacey to be friends with her again. Sadly, Stacey is too drunk in power to ever consider returning. As such Anna loathes Libby for stealing her friend.
    • The switch also made Anna take a second look at her relationship with her younger brother Harry. Initially wary of the boy for constantly annoying her, she discovered that Harry secretly admires her. He just doesn't want to admit that to her. She wondered if his patron saint D.W. had the same relationship with Arthur.
  • Exclusive to Tess:
    • Is seen as somewhat of a decent psychologist. Taking advice from her daughter, she decided to check out some of the local psychologists in order to improve her skills. The God of Psychologists Frasier Crane was more than happy to take her under his wing. He finds the fortune cookie case to be a fascinating situation regarding his particular form of psychology, asking her of what it was like to be in her daughter's shoes.
    • Occasionally brings along Ryan Volvo with her at certain times. Her first husband died suddenly and Anna was initially skeptical of her mother's choices. But he proved to be an interesting foil to her overly protective mother. In that case, she thanks Cordelia every day for finding a Second Love worthy of herself and her daughter.

  • The kingdom of Hallownest has attracted quite a plenty visitors who were interested in seeing its lush landscapes or seeking thrill of combat and glory. One of such visitors was Zote the Mighty, a Self-Proclaimed Knight of "great renown". With 'Life Ender', his trusty nail in hand he carved from shellwood at young age, he seeks to face the challenges of Hallownest and fulfill a promise he made long ago. He had vanquished thousands of enemies, and cannot be beaten, for he lacks any sorts of weaknesses...according to himself, at least. In reality, he's just a bumbling fool who always gets into all kinds of trouble and boasts about victories he never achieved. He was chewed on by Vengefly King only to get rescued by the actual Knight, who he berated for getting in between him and his prey (except in the alternate accounts that state the Knight neglected to save him, allowing the Vengefly King to eat him alive). Much later, he was trapped in the spider web in Deepnest, where he was rescued by the Knight once again and berated his savior once more for almost hitting him with his nail. And then, even more later, he was captured by the Fools in their Colosseum, forced to partake in their Gladiator Games, only to lose pathetically to the aforementioned Knight. With his pride wounded, he returned into the town of Dirtmouth, bringing "the trophy for his ultimate victory in the Colosseum of Fools" and then proceeded to badmouth the Knight to all citizens. However, nobody believed him except for a shy beetle named Bretta, who, after initially fangirling over "the White Wanderer", was quickly enarmored by "the Grey Prince" and took his words about her former idol for truth. Though the Knight did shatter her illusions in the dreamscape, prompting her to leave him, he didn't care, since, in his own mind at least, he has achieved everything he desired, and finally fulfilled his promise...said promise being a promise of glory he made to himself.
  • How did Zote the Mighty get into the Pantheon? Well, it all began when the Knight was exploring the Pantheon and noticed the fragile wall in one of the Houses. Whether it was compelled by curiosity, or some otherworldly will, or the fact that it realized that there was someone in need for help underneath, the Knight started striking the wall, damaging it so hard the wall shattered, and then entirely new temple came from the other side, with the statue of the warrior in the middle, the one slightly indentical to the Knight itself, depicting him standing in triumphal pose with a nail in his hand. Said warrior popped out through the same hole in the wall seconds later, having turned out to be stuck in the wall for the entire time. After coming to his senses, he looked at the Knight and then immediately proceeded to rip it a new one for its help.
    "Just what do you think you're doing? You almost struck me with your rusty nail, breaking that pathetic rock wall I could've destroyed by myself! And if you had, it would have been the end of you! Know this, cur. I am Zote the Mighty, a knight of great renown. Cross my path again, and you will see why they call my weapon 'Life Ender'! Now begone from my sight, lest I draw my nail and strike you down!"
    • Many deities were surprised when they discovered that Zote was stuck inside the wall in the Pantheon for a very long time, though some eventually admitted that they would've preferred him to be stuck there for a longer time, given how irritating he eventually proved himself to be. After thorough observation of his behavior, it was initially proposed to make him a divine representation of the Boisterous Weakling archetype, basing it on the fact he's absolutely pathetic in strength, yet always brags about his non-existent strength, but the title was already given to one certain ice fairy. However, it was also noted that he always refers to himself as "a knight of great renown" whenever he can, and it was established that the knight title was never officially bestowed to him by anyone, nor he can be referred as "the Knight" due to being a candidate for being the Hollow Knight, as he (most likely) isn't one of the Vessels, unlike the actual entity that bears the title of the Knight. With that in mind, he was officially bestowed upon the title of the "divine" Self-Proclaimed Knight.
  • It took him three day to realize that the Knight who saved him from the wall is actually the same Knight who he frequently had run-ins with in the past. Irritated by his presence, his rivalry with the Knight was reignited once more, and he frequently tried to make sure to discredit it whenever he can by lying to others about it being the horrible beast, or trying to steal the credit for all good deeds it did or dangerous enemies it vanquished. So far no one except few Super Gullible deities took his words for truth, as they know better than to trust someone who can't scratch even the weakest quasideity, or acts as an insufferable Jerkass. The Knight itself doesn't care for this rivalry, being an Empty Shell with no emotions, and is known to be the only one to frequently save his life whenever Zote gets into trouble, only to be scolded for one reason or another.
  • He has a set of 57 rules he lives by, which he refers to as the 'Fifty-Seven Precepts of Zote'. Their complete list can be read here. Zote himself, when not adventuring, can be seen describing his precepts near his temple to anyone who passes by, or to nobody in general, as he more often than not fails to acknowledge that nobody is listening, too deluded by his own "glory" to be aware of the lack of audience.
    • Several deities tried to point out his hypocrisy, as he often violates his own precepts, such as Precept One (Always Win Your Battles), Precept Fourteen (Respect Your Superiors), and Precept Twenty (Speak Only the Truth), and consequently, he violates Precept Fifty-Seven (Obey All Precepts) as well. To such accusations, Zote responded that he didn't violate these precepts, as he always wins his battles, respects his superiors, and it's just that "nobody in the Pantheon is his superior", and speaks only the truth, and what he said about the Knight is also true. Telepathic deities tried to read his mind to see does he know that he's lying, and were shocked to discover that Zote even thinks in lies. At the end, they gave up on trying to make him see the truth, seeing his mind beyond salvation, while Zote in turn believes they just fail to realize how amazing he is.
    • Because of his extremely warped cognition, the Phantom Thieves of Hearts feel pity for Zote due to how deluded he is, believing himself to be the mightiest while in truth being anything but, and always ending up in trouble because of that. However, they're not intending on changing his heart anytime soon, as he is literally not a threat to anyone except himself, is not evil at all (though he is a massive egotistic jerk), not to mention the possibility that, should they change his heart, he may end up becoming a terrified wreck once he realizes how weak he truly is and how much of a threat the world poses to him.
  • Zote is often seen challenging the Chosen Undead, the Bearer of the Curse, and the Ashen One to duels. They usually end with Zote getting his ass kicked, but it doesn't seem to deter him so much. He can also be frequently seen gnawed on by the various monsters of the Pantheon, including but not limited to: Ungoliant, Shelob, Drapion, THEM!, Cerberus, Zinogre, the Hellhounds, and Ramon. When other deities spot them in the mouth of some creature, their actions vary. Sometimes they reluctantly save his life, with the Knight being his most frequent savior, only for Zote to scold their saviors for "getting in the way between him and his prey", claiming he was not in the danger as "they dull their jaws gnawing on his indestructible body". And sometimes, they just leave him to die, as he's just not worth it, plus Death Is Cheap in the Pantheon, so he always finds a way to come back. His obnoxious nature, general weakness and delusions of strength also ensured that even those who love challenge and thrill of combat and hunt would find him to be Not Worth Killing, as there will be no pleasure found in ending his life.
  • Is a frequent butt of all kinds of jokes from other deities of the Pantheon who mock him for being absolutely weak, yet still believing himself to be the strongest and unbeatable, and for the fact that his 'Life Ender' never ended not even one life. Some deities decided to test how weak is Zote by pitting him against the various deities that die from one hit or suffer from severe drawback from getting hit to see will his 'Life Ender' manage to end their lives or inflict said drawbacks. The results? No matter how hard Zote struck them with his 'Life Ender', Sonic the Hedgehog didn't lose his rings, Cuphead and Mugman didn't get a single crack, and Eryi, Zee Tee, Viridian, Born and The Kid remained completely unharmed despite the fact that they die from a single hit from everything else, proving that yes, Zote is just that weak, and his 'Life Ender' cannot end lives at all. However, as far as Zote is aware, he did manage to end their lives, and nothing would convince him otherwise.
    • Another frequent subject of mockery is the fact that Cirno, the aforementioned ice fairy that serves as a prime divine representation for the Boisterous Weakling archetype, manages to be stronger than him (or, in other words, Zote is weaker than a goddess of Boisterous Weaklings). To prove them wrong and show them that he's not a weakling, he once attempted to challenge her in hopes of beating her and establishing that he's not the weaker one. However, even though Zote managed to land an unexpected cheap shot, his 'Life Ender' completely failed to scratch or even bruise her, and Cirno simply froze him into an ice block and left him alone, as even she considered him to be a complete waste of time and powers. Zote still holds a grudge against her and constantly tries to challenge her over and over again, each time ending up getting frozen solid and left behind. Similarly, he once attempted to vanquish a group of Waddle Dees, but his weakness prevented him from even hurting them. To make matters worse for him, they misunderstood his intent and now regard him as a pushy friend and frequently "play tag" with him, much to his chagrin.
    • He once attempted to challenge Glass Joe in the battle, claiming he'll end his life with his 'Life Ender' before "that puny weakling realizes his soul just left his body". Glass Joe was initially terrified on the prospect of his threat, but accepted the challenge anyway...and breathed a massive sigh of relief upon discovering how harmless Zote actually is. Even when Zote struck him with his 'Life Ender' (into his chin, nonetheless), it didn't even hurt him, while Joe (eventually) managed to defeat Zote, making him slightly more respected and giving the deities another material for making fun of Zote, much to the latter's dismay.
    • Dan Hibiki once tried to take Zote under his wing to teach him Saikyo-ryu to "awaken Zote's true potential". Zote reluctantly accepted his offer, hoping to see what Dan has to offer. Unfortunately, Zote's pitiful skills, constant tripping and falling on his face, obnoxious attitude and blatant disrespect to his mentor ended up being too much even for Dan, resulting in the "knight of great renown" being expelled from his dojo. In response to the aftermath, Zote simply called Dan pathetic and claimed that he never needed his training anyway, as he already possesses the most powerful training there is: his 'Life Ender', combined with his "awesome nail-wielding skills".
    • Another fellow weakling to end up being in conflict with Zote was the Punishing Bird, a tiny bird that punishes others by pecking them with its beak, usually very ineffectually (though it can eventually kill its targets, unlike Zote). It all began when the Punishing Bird attempted to punish Zote by pecking on him. After Zote has had it enough with being launched around by its pecks like a ragdoll, he decided to retaliate against it by swinging at it with his trusty 'Life Ender'. It ended poorly for him, as, even though the Bird was completely unharmed by the attack, it got furious anyway and immediately chomped him down. Despite this, Zote still hasn't learned his lesson and continues to attack and provoke the Punishing Bird whenever he notices it, always meeting the same fate as the last time.
    • One of the many "weaklings" Zote tried to beat was Sans, another fellow One-Hit-Point Wonder. Unfortunately, no matter how hard Zote tries, Sans always manages to dodge his every single attack, and then leaves when he grows too bored. This angers Zote even more and makes him more determined to strike him down with his 'Life Ender', each attempt being no more successful than the last one. This makes Zote a laughingstock for every other deity who witnesses him going after Sans... but that ended when he ended up striking Toriel, who stood up to protect Sans. Though the damage he inflicted was a measly 1, given the weakness of his 'Life Ender', as well as the fact that his LOVE (Level Of ViolEnce) is 1 due to having failed to kill anything throughout his life, and Toriel was able to effortlessly launch him away, the fact that Zote managed to inflict damage at all was enough to get them worried. It is feared that, should he ever successfully strike Sans down, his 'Life Ender' might actually live up to its name, and to make matters worse, it might increase his LOVE enough to make him a threat to monsterkind. Alphys is particularly worried about him, given that she's not a fighternote , but that wouldn't matter anyway, since he would have to get past Undyne first, who is always willing to protect her and is much more threatening to Zote (though she's disappointed by the fact that Zote is not challenging at all). Frisk, Flowey, Napstablook and Mettaton, on the other hand, have nothing to fear from Zote, given that he cannot damage them at all. Flowey was particularly bewildered and amused by the fact that Zote was incapable of damaging him, a simple flower. However, he won't even bother to try and kill him, as Zote is just too pathetic to kill.
  • With Zote's ascension, it was reported that a being very similar to him in appearance had manifested in the Hall of Dreams and Nightmares. This entity was a dream-born being conjured from the subconsciousness of Bretta, a shy young beetle girl who was once enarmored with real Zote's lies and imagined up a perfect, idealized version of him known as Grey Prince Zote. While still incompetent when it comes to tactics, the Grey Prince wields unimaginable strength (which grows stronger with each defeat until the 10th one), can produce massive shockwaves and spawn Zotelings, bizarre creatures that bear the resemblance to Zote himself and come in three flavors: spider-like Hopping Zotelings, fly-like Winged Zotelings, and maggot-like Volatile Zotelings. Though the Grey Prince was initially an independent entity, as it was just a figment of Bretta's imagination, Zote eventually managed to learn to take this form in the Hall of Dreams and Nightmares. After all, he did manage to take the background music normally associated with the Grey Prince form, let alone sing it, so it would only be a matter of time until he would claim the form for himself as well. Undyne is particularly fond of challenging him in this form in the Hall of Dreams and Nightmares, finding him to be much more challenging than his real-world self (though she admits that he may be a little bit too challenging, not that she complains).
    • Similarly, the statue in his temple serves another purpose beyond just looking cool and feeding Zote's ego: a long physical contact with it transports the deity into the unique place in the dreamscape, which takes form of the empty arena, where the deity must fight countless hordes of Zotelings in the event known as "The Eternal Ordeal". The ordeal is considered won if the contestant succesfully kills 57 Zotelings, but they can continue murdering Zotes for how much they would like, and they leave only if they get killed by Zotelings (in that case they would simply wake up in reality, or, if they are thought-forms, will get transported back into their temple), or if they choose to leave on their own. Many deities who are extremely annoyed by Zote find this experience very cathartic, and due to that, they become frequent visitors of Zote's temple, if for all the wrong reasons.
  • He's very annoyed by Don Quixote, another fellow delusional Self-Proclaimed Knight. He is very quick to point out that Quixote is just a crazy man with no combat experience who would most likely get himself killed the moment he would face true dangers of the Pantheon, the dangers only he, Zote the Mighty, could vanquish with his trusty 'Life Ender'. Quixote in turn is annoyed by Zote deluding himself into being all-powerful even though the truth is that he's anything but, and that he didn't really achieve anything. So far neither party had realized the irony.
  • I am Zote the Mighty, a knight of great renown. My weapon, 'Life Ender' has struck down hundreds of foes. Begone, or you'll be next!
