    Aurum 
Aurum, The God Who Broke the Pedestal (Super Hero Aurum, Evil God Aurum, Geoffrey)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/superhero_aurum_8.png
Evil God Aurum 
Geoffrey 
  • Intermediate God (Greater God as Evil God Aurum)
  • Symbol: The Superhero Sword, stabbed onto a construct made out of demon parts
  • Theme Songs: CosmicRays and Last World
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil, used to be Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Hero who Fell Out of Grace, Standing on a Broken Pedestal Before Breaking It, Just Wanting to Die, Not Understanding the Power of Love and Friendship, Purposefully Provoking Create Your Own Villain, Needing Villains to Stay as a Hero, Used as an Guinea Pig
  • Domains: Fallen Heroes, Manipulation, Butlers, Final Bosses
  • Allies: Lordgenome, General Grievous, Plutonian
  • Enemies: Mao, Almaz, Raspberyl, Sapphire, Mr. Champloo, Teddie
  • Begrudging Understanding between: Saitama
  • There are those who have a Broken Pedestal. And then there is Super Hero Aurum, whose pedestal started cracking when he started to get tired of being the hero and just wanted to die in the blaze of glory, resulting him going after Mao's father, which broke Mao's pedestal for him. Then he utterly broke it by trying to turn Mao into the strongest and most heartless Overlord for 200 years as the butler Geoffrey so that he can either die against him, or defeat him and grow stronger. And due to Mao intentionally locking away his memories, not only did he more or less re-break the pedestal for Mao, but broke the pedestal for Almaz. Needless to say, even the demons were against him for this (Disgaea demons, but that's beside the point).
  • He was considered to be thrown into the Fallen, but judgement was postponed for a long time, due to Mao keeping him as his own personal guinea pig. However, he lost control of him after he used him as a power source for his Getter Mao, which fell into the hands of Valvatorez. He eventually got free (possibly due to Fenrich scrapping the machine), but was captured and brought to justice, where he was thrown into the Fallen.
    • However, after some revaluation, gods considered that Aurum did not deserve to be in the Fallen as he pulled off Broken Pedestal rather greatly, and was moved out.
  • Even today, Mao still tries to turn Aurum back to a guinea pig. Unfortunately for him, Aurum is making sure that he isn't going to be experimented (or brainwashed) again.
  • When needed, Aurum turns back to his Geoffrey disguise to act as a butler. Due to how prepared he is, especially with portals, he does a really good job at it.
  • Teddie really doesn't like him due to them sounding the same and due to how he thinks that friendship is meaningless. Though Aurum himself is annoyed by Kefka for sounding like someone trying to mock him and swears to kill that clown like many Overlords he has slain before.
  • Lordgenome, being a Fallen Hero himself, does sympathize with Aurum a little bit, and has tried to teach him how he could repair his pedestal. Aurum does appreciate it as he does feel a little bit bad for everything he has done.
  • Due to his twisted sense of what it means to be a hero, he is not part of GUAG, but refuses to join GUAE or GUAC. Even GUAL is out of question, not wanting to be dragged by them endlessly.
  • He seems to share an understanding with Saitama, as both of them grew into the point where neither of them were satisfied with victory.
  • Among the handful of allies that the Plutonian has is Aurum, another Fallen Hero that's had a Broken Pedestal for some time. No one can say for certain if it's true or not (and many are hoping it's not), but the Plutonian is trying to get Aurum to embrace his own powers and cause chaos.

    Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel and Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel 
Carol Susan Jane Danvers and Kamala Khan, Co-Goddesses of Lasting Affirmative Action Characters (Carol: Captain Marvel, formerly known as Ms. Marvel, Binary, "Vers" | Kamala: Ms. Marvel)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ms_3.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess (Carol, Greater in the MCU), Lesser Goddess (Kamala)
  • Symbol: Carol's insignia or Kamala's lightning bolt.
  • Leitmotif: Slugger
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Carol), Chaotic Good (Kamala)
  • Portfolios: Action Girl, Half-Human Hybrid, Super Strength, Affirmative Action Legacy
  • Domains: Heroism, Good, Strength, (Carol: Sun, Void, Law), (Kamala: Chaos, Rubber)
  • Herald: Sam Alexander/Nova
  • Followers: Courtney Elizabeth Whitmore/Stargirl, Michael Holt/ Mr. Terrific, Kaldur/Aqualad. There were many others... only to be replaced/killed off.
  • Allies: Billy Batson/Shazam, Avatar Korra, Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Miles Morale, James Howlett/Wolverine,
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Anna Marie/Rogue
  • Enemies: Victor von Doom, Lex Luthor, Ultron, Johann Schmidt/Red Skull, Kang the Conqueror
  • Opposes: Raven Darkholme/Mystique
  • Neutral with: Alison Blaire/Dazzler
  • It takes a lot of determination to make a name for oneself in the Superhero Pantheon. That goes double for those who hope to take on the legacy of previous characters. Out of those, Carol may win the title of those who went through the roughest times. Her perseverance finally paid off when she took over Marvell's title of Captain Marvel. Her warm reception while replacing a male character with a female one earned her a place in the Pantheon. But she wouldn't enter alone. A Pakistani girl named Kamala Khan took her former title of Ms. Marvel. For being such a popular character while replacing a white female, Carol decided to make her a full-fledged goddess instead of a herald.
    • It was not an easy decision. Many like the two strive to become legacy characters to their inspirations, with many failing to do so. Some of their kind were either killed off or sidelined shortly afterwards. Carol and Kamala seek to help those in need, with Carol especially distraught with her followers suffering the same abuse she had endured.
  • Kamala made sure to visit every single house in the Pantheon. Twice over. Sure it left her exhausted for a week, but it was well worth it. She squeed to find not only many of her favorite superheroes, but characters she read and played games in.
  • Billy Batson put up his best smile when the two ascended, but he couldn't help but feel deflated. That's due to being involved in one of the most peculiar naming battles in the Pantheon. After Billy's stories were shut down, Carol's predecessor took the name "Captain Marvel" for himself. Once Billy returned, he wasn't allowed to use that name in his books. It got to the point where DC decided to just call him Shazam and end it there, even though he has never been called that before now. Carol and Kamala heard his plight and decided to pay him a visit, saying he could use the name whenever he wanted. A teary Billy gave the two a hug before taking them to the House of Food to eat.
  • Rumors have been swirling around the Pantheon, claiming that Danvers still has a crush on Spider-Man. Carol refuses to buy into the claim, but Kamala thinks she's lying. She even wrote a fanfic of the two together. Spider-Man takes the notion with pride and even teasing Marvel about it.
    • This has come to bit him on the butt when many pointed out Peter's thoughts indicated he may have wished the two became a formal item, successfully shutting down the Spider and causing a large blush from Carol and a squeal of excitement from Kamala.
  • Some say Ms. Marvel shares a resemblance with Korra, especially after the later cut her hair. Kamala was grateful for the compliment, but points out she usually doesn't have the physique to match. It's that some of her artists that don't know that.
    • Carol seems to have the opposite problem. Despite having a figure most goddesses would dream of, some still think of her a more thick-skinned than most other superheroes. This accusation dates back to when Doctor Doom called her a "fat cow" Doom admittedly stated that it was a Doombot that said that, as he would never resort to such childish insults. Carol felt even more embarrassed that she let that get to her.
  • Both stand opposed to the usual villainous gods in the Pantheon, particularly Lex Luthor, God of Supervillains. The GUAE have acted accordingly to counteract the threat.
  • It is almost certain that Carol is currently finding an opportunity to ascend her best friend Jessica Drew, AKA Spider-Woman, into the Pantheon. To her surprise, she previously had a seat in the House of Heroes before circumstances disqualified her from the title. Carol hopes to find a new one for her. Many deities theorized their friendship is more than that given Jessica's sexual tendencies. Both parties deny those charges. Carol even noted she was already in a relationship; that with James Rhodes, formerly known as War Machine.
  • One of Carol's lowest points as a mortal was the time when she was depowered by Rogue, forcing her to live her life with no superpowers for a long time. She may have forgiven the mutant for ruining her life, but the two still don't see eye to eye on a number of issues.
    • The reason she could forgive Rogue is that she found out she only acted on the will her former superior: Mystique. So when she found out that the shapeshifter had a temple of her own... well, saying she was angry would be an understatement. Carol flew over to Mystique and gave her a beating to remember before being restrained in the House of Justice. She may not be allowed to kick her out, but Carol is willing to make her life a living hell for what she did.
  • As such she serves as a motherly figure to all deities who felt neglected, superhero or otherwise. That attitude was why she supported Jessica Jones more than any other superhero at the later's lowest point. She was elated to find her ascended in the Pantheon.
  • After her initial tour of the Pantheon, Kamala settled down in the House of Gaming, fulfilling her wishes of playing video games. She was glad there were many other deities who were gamers like her, even willing to roleplay online.
  • As an Inhuman, Kamala respects the lone deity in the Pantheon. Black Bolt and his wife Medusa have tasked themselves in training Kamala to improve her powers.
  • It was no surprise that Kamala got along well with Steven Universe. Kamala was in contention for the title herself given how well received she has been with her fans. Her in-universe popularity... could use some work. She hopes that Steven can win back her support in Jersey City.
  • She was also a fan of her appearance in the Avengers Academy. Amusing, as she is probably the only one who appeared at their exact age.
  • Carol also placed shrines in her temple to her predecessors (and successors of the original Captain, most notably Spectrum, Monica Rambeau ( a female Afro-American who was the second Captain Marvel and the first Photon) along with Mar-Vell's children (Genis-Vell, his son who was the third Marvel before becoming the second Photon and Phyla-Vell, who became the fourth Marvel before becoming the second Quasar). All next to a shrine of Mar-Vell himself. The Vell family's shrines also serve as memorials, given their ultimate fates.
    • Kamala also made one to her predecessor and Carol's successor for Ms. Marvel, who is now She-Thing when she learned about her.
  • Some have pointed out why Carol chose to call herself Captain Marvel despite her being a US Airforce Colonel in rank and thus technically outranks Captain America himself and making her new title a demotion. She takes it in stride since she did choose the name to honor Mar-Vell though she has said that Colonel Marvel had a nice ring to it.
  • Marvel has been trying to make Carol into their counterpart for Wonder Woman, thus leading Carol to befriend the Amazonian. Both of them hit it off well, while Kamala has been spending time with both Wonder Girls.
    • Diana and Carol also find a hilarious common ground in that both of their metaphysical origins were inspired by those of Billy Batson as Captain Marvel; (For Diana, both got powers from the Greek Gods, with Diana having been made by DC to Captain Marvel back when he was with Fawcett Comics. In turn, Carol and her predecessor, Mar-Vell, were Marvel's answer to Billy.
  • Unfortunately, the two are rarely seen together nowadays as a result of the events of the second Civil War. Both heroines are also seen in much more depressed moods.
    • Fortunately, the two are able to patch things up when Carol goes to talk to Kamala and convinces her to come out of retirement.
  • During the HYDRA takeover of the world Kamala had met Illyana again, but despite their different nature as Inhuman and Mutant both joined together in the fight eventually coming to respect one another. Illyana wasn't ready to call Kamala a friend, even when she was invited over for some more sweets in Kamala's house.
  • Carol's live-action debut has brought her to the attention of some other deities. Trent Reznor, in gratitude for her wearing a Nine Inch Nails shirt, gifted Carol with a specially made one. Her portrayer made Scott Pilgrim consider Carol familiar and King Kong to take a liking to her.
  • Due to the One Steve Limit, Khan is often confused with Kamala Harris.
  • Carol despises Kang for his villainy but mostly for what his son did to her when she was Ms. Marvel. Kang actually doesn't hold it against her as he hated Marcus too.

  • Enemies: Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious, Maul, Darth Nihilus, Sauron, Darkseid, Thanos, Frieza, The Tyranids, Ezekyle Abbadon, Madara Uchiha
  • On Good Terms With: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano, Cal Kestis, Yoda, Qui-Gon Jinn, Raiden
  • Commonality Connection: Malekith, Mordred
  • Special Relationship: Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader (his grandfather and a former herald of his), Leia Organa (his mother), Han Solo (his father), Luke Skywalker (his uncle and former master), Rey
  • Additional Relationship: Henry Cooldown
  • Allegiance: Difficult to Pinpoint as Kylo works with more morally ambiguous deities. That said, his actions do tend to favor more towards the Grand United Alliance of Good.
  • Kylo Ren is the mysterious mascot and frontline general of the First Order, a remnant of the Galactic Empire dedicated to rebuilding itself to match it's predecessor's might and oppression. Kylo was the Order's most notable and feared member, being a former Jedi with a very strong affinity to the Force. In truth, he is Ben Solo, the son of Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo, heroes of the Rebel Alliance who put an end to the Galactic Empire. This also made him grandson to Anakin Skywalker, better known as Darth Vader. He has convinced himself into fulfilling Vader's wishes into restoring order to the galaxy, never really considering that Vader turned back from the Dark Side shortly before his death.
    • He was an apprentice to his uncle, Luke Skywalker, who established a new Jedi Order after the defeat of the Galactic Empire. However, tragic circumstances prompted Kylo to turn on his master and fellow students, slaughtering most of them and joining Snoke to become his personal apprentice. Despite his affinity to the Dark Side of the Force, Kylo's psyche felt incredibly conflicted. He tried to sever this by personally killing his father, but that only worsened his situation. Eventually, he would execute Snoke to take his place as Supreme Leader of the First Order. Along the way, he formed a surprisingly positive relationship with Resistance Fighter Rey and tried to convince her to join alongside him as a means of leaving the past away and starting anew. Likewise, his considerations were not reciprocated.
      • Kylo would eventually realize that he was manipulated by Emperor Palpatine throughout his entire life. He was commissioned to kill Rey, but soon after, he finally let go of the Dark Side after talking to a vision of his father Han. He would join alongside Rey in defeating Palpatine, though he gave his life to revive a dead Rey, but not before having a first and last kiss of affection.
  • Kylo was initially a herald to his grandfather in his first days in the Pantheon. That said, he was relegated to events regarding his mortal life, never really getting a chance to have an opportunity to act in a multiversial world. It was only after he shed his mortal coil that Kylo managed to ascend into the Pantheon, though his representing trope was an allusion to his sins and faults.
    • It turns out that even as his herald, Kylo never met his grandfather. Upon meeting for the first time in a military base for the 501st Legion, Vader shared his heartfelt experience about his life as Anakin Skywalker and as Darth Vader. Now understanding how it truly felt to be like his grandfather, Kylo tearfully embraced his predecessor, cursing himself for being far too reckless and angry to fully realize the path he was going down on. Vader simply reciprocated by telling him that much of his grief wasn't fully his fault either and that he could try to do something about his newfound redemption in the Pantheon.
  • In a very short amount of timespan, Kylo found himself to be a very polarizing figure; heroes aren't too trusting of him given his actions as First Order Commander, yet villains are wary of Kylo being willing to go against their orders and wishes due to his conflicted feelings towards the Light and Dark Sides. Vader, in addition to giving him joint-leadership position in the 501st Legion, nominated him to join a band of morally complex deities headed by Nagato. Kylo has since taken up the offer, feeling like this may be the crowd that he would integrate into without much issues.
    • While Kylo gets along with Nagato, given that the latter understands suffering and is willing to aid the former out in emotional aspects, Kylo's feelings towards his new companions are mixed. Captain Cold seems easy to work with given his code of ethics, but Golbez and Vlad von Carstein seem to be more difficult. Golbez seems incredibly aloof and spends more time monitoring his brother Cecil. Vlad's ruthless demeanor towards his enemies and his vampire forces renders him a very hard man to come across. Illyasveil von Einzbern seems sweet and polite, but Kylo is wary enough to not push her buttons too much lest she unleashes Berserker to wreak havok. In spite of these issues, they acknowledge Kylo's presence, power and past and genuinely see him as a valuable ally to work with. Kylo himself doesn't have any hard feelings towards them and would often send them Stormtrooper factions to provide them with additional artillery.
  • Despite his reputation however, he has managed to back in good graces with the ascended members of the Jedi Order. It helps that he was redeemed before his death and that he was comforted by his grandfather during his ascension. Still, they're wary of what the former Jedi and First Order Commander is capable of and considering for his future actions. Kylo has assured that he'll try to do better in the future.
  • Because of his conflicted thoughts, emotional nature and his redemption, Kylo is often sympathized by Raiden. He understands the burden of carrying too much expectations and drama thanks to his experiences in defending Earthrealm. That said, he acknowledges that his circumstances and Kylo's are vastly different. Still, Raiden will try to see if he can work to socialize and help Kylo open up more about his insecurities.
  • Despite his eventual turn to Good, he's still seen wielding his trademark red lightsaber with a customized crossguard. It seems to be because it is his most notable weapon and Kylo would be most recognizable ad favored with his First Order garb by the Pantheon, much to his dismay. Fortunately, he doesn't have to replicate Vader to the point of wearing a life-support armor which his grandfather is pleased to know about.
  • Despite his obvious affection, Kylo refuses to meet with his parents. Maybe it's to do with the guilt of killing his father, putting further grief towards his mother and playing a role in his uncle's death. So far, no one has asked Kylo about why he keeps distance, even if there's an obvious answer. For now, the only family he regularly meets up with is Vader, which thankfully, is on a more healthier and productive approach.
  • To his surprise, Kylo seems to find himself relatable to Malekith. The Witch King acknowledges this and poses no enmity on Kylo, despite his Friendly Enemy stance on Vader. Kylo highlights the fact that Malekith's desire to live up to the reputation of his father Aenarion is pretty similar to his past actions of trying to surpass Vader. That, and both were lulled into darkness through a series of tragedies and manipulations. They have a ceasefre for now, though Malekith has pondered about working with Kylo when it comes to fighting the Grand United Alliance of Evil, seeing as the two of them have a common enemy in mind.
    • There is also Mordred, a man with antagonistic feelings towards his father/uncle, King Arthur. While Kylo finds the situation around his conceiving to be pretty controversial, he does sympathize with him to an extent and wishes to find a way to help him out. On the other hand, the other Mordred, Saber of Red, is a straight ally as the two of them get along with their similarities of having difficult familial relationships and trying to better themselves as a person in the very end. Saber of Red has since been encouraging of trying to get Kylo to be a leader in his own unique way.
  • Kylo opposes space tyrants like Darkseid, Thanos and Frieza. It's mainly to do with the fact that Kylo himself was raised by a Galactic Conquerer and the experiences around it were not nice to say the least. Still, it's a relief that Kylo managed to stop a potential threat despite that being but a ploy devised by Palpatine himself. That, and he also saved Rey from being killed. The other space tyrants however think of Kylo as inconsequential and annoying compared to their grand scheme of things.
    • Some might see Sauron as an Evil Counterpart of his to an extent. While their settings can't be any more different, the fact remains that both Sauron and Kylo were apprentices and the top commander of their master, Melkor and Snoke respectively. The differences end there however; despite both of them proving themselves treacherous towards their masters, Sauron continued to commit evil having completely forgone whatever good intentions he may have had whereas Kylo clung onto to the fact that he may be the galaxy's best chance of maintaining order and control. The Dark Lord found this comparison amusing, but still sees Kylo as just another pest to deal with.
  • While he may be better known as Kylo Ren, it's rare to see someone actually call him by his real name, Ben Solo. Initially, his family members were the only ones to refer him by the latter, though overtime, a few of his allies have begun to do it too, either as a means of being playful or showing a sign of respect. Kylo doesn't mind it.
  • Was amused to see that the lightsaber crossguard concept was done by Henry Cooldown 8 years prior to his formal introduction. As a result, Kylo pays some degree of respect to him and is eager to one day fight against Henry to see how well he could hold up against him.
  • To a lot of people's surprise, Kylo was able to defeat and even kill the legendary Zillo Beast. Even Darth Vader wasn't able to do the deed. This has been able to strengthen the 501st Legion's morale up by some notches, given he was able to accomplish a feat that very little have managed to do. The Monster Hunters have admitted to giving Kylo some sort of respect about this in some regard and even considered inviting them for creature hunting. He declined, stating that monster hunting isn't exactly his job, but respects the Monster Hunters' wishes regardless.
  • Is linked to Rey via the Force, hence them being a Dyad. This is one of the reasons that Kylo wanted Rey to join with him in the First Order rather than killing her. Additionally, it's what redeemed him as well. While some Force users are impressed by Kylo's feat in this and him no longer being an evil threat means the Jedi don't have to worry about him too much, Maul has expressed interest in such a concept. This led to scuffles between the two every now and them. That said, Maul has expressed interest in being a Dyad with Savage Oppress, should he be ascended, an idea that Kylo couldn't care less for.
  • Kylo is apparently very muscular and fit. Not exactly news-worthy, but some took his physique and promoted it like wildfire, alongside proclaiming him as Ben Swolo. He finds this pretty amusing.
  • While he's mellowed out considerably thanks to his experience of being humbled and understanding his flaws, many simply remember Kylo for losing his shit to the point of exasperation. Didn't take long before he was declared an Edgelord, complete with a compilation of songs emphasizing this nature. Again, Kylo doesn't know what to make of it. And no, he doesn't have built-in headphones in his mask either.
  • Also in the Destinies Sub-House.
I'm being torn apart. I want to be free of this pain. I know what I have to do but I don't know if I have the strength to do it. Will you help me?

  • Alignment: Neutral Evil, Chaotic or Lawful Neutral post-ascension (True Neutral in the "Fateful Brothers" timeline, Neutral Good in MasakoX's most popular hypothetical timeline).
  • Portfolio: Starter Villain, The Weakling of His Group, Evil Brother and Uncle, Cowardice, Meant to be Unlikable But Popular For Some Reason, Small Role, MASSIVE Impact, Big Brother Bully, Rapunzel Hair.
  • Domain: Evil, Storytelling, Paper Tigers.
  • Saiyan Army Comrades: Nappa, Bardock (his father), Paragus, Turles (Teeth-Clenched Teamwork)
  • Former Ally: Babidi
  • Pities: Yamcha, Father (KND)
  • Enemies: Vegeta, Lord King Shin, Greed the Avaricious, Lin Beifong
  • Supports and is supported by: The Dragon Ball Z fanbase
  • Opposed by: Kenshiro, Kara Zor-L/Karen Starr/Power Girl, Android 21, Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk
  • Fears: Frieza, Broly, Broly: BR
  • For years, Raditz had dwelled in Hell, believing his Saiyan brethren had taken vengeance. Instead, Vegeta has long since forgotten about him, and his brother hasn't even bothered visiting him. The cowardly Saiyan is pretty damn pissed about this, and with his revival in the Pantheon, he plans to get back at them both.
  • Things went worse for him when he finally saw his parents again in the afterlife, who were very disappointed with his treatment of Kakarot, their grandson, and his general attitude together. He tried to call them out on this, asking why they didn't tell him his brother was sent to Earth for his own protection, instead of slaughtering the population like normal.
  • His anger has cooled down after discovering he has a relatively large fanbase, who believe he should've had a bigger role. He's happy that somebody cares about him.
  • Once allied himself with Kenshiro's evil brother Jagi, something which Kenshiro and especially Lord King Shin do not regard well at all. He can sympathize with being the Black Sheep and comparative wimp of the Pantheon. He works together with KND's Father for similar reasons.
  • Though he hates the Z-Fighters, Raditz has nothing bad to say about Yamcha. He can feel for him being treated as such a weakling.
  • While a weakling in the large scale of things, one must remember if it weren't for him, the events in his home universe wouldn't have happened. Kakarot would've never known about the Saiyans and fought them, Piccolo might never have become an ally, Vegeta would still be under Frieza's reign (or dead), Frieza himself would still be terrorizing the universe, Kami knows what the Androids or Cell would be like, and Majin Buu would be stuck in his ball. In the grand scheme of things, he's made quite an impact.
    • Ironically, were it not for his death, neither Kakarot nor Vegeta would've become the pinnacle of his Saiyan race, the very thing he thought he could help Kakarot with by stealing his son and being a general dick to him. This has made Raditz feel slightly better about his predicament, but still cross it involved his death.
  • Babidi has seen potential in him as a minion. Raditz has chosen to submit to his Majin spells willingly, hoping to no longer be a glorified Saibaman. It won't really help him against most foes. Babidi has tried to get him a haircut, but the Saiyan was able to ignore this order despite his mind control.
  • In his search for a better life, Raditz came across an alternate timeline where he lost his memory and had a gradual Heel–Face Turn as a result. He still presumably died. The main Raditz isn't sure what to take from this.
    • He much later came across another possible exploration of a potential better life for himself. Long story short, had he been able to escape Kakarot's full nelson hold, dodge Piccolo's Makankosappo, and survive to report to Vegeta after recovering, he would've replaced Vegeta as Kakarot's link to the Saiyans and Kakarot as Vegeta's despised rival, as well as achieved both a life of peace on Earth and incredible power much like they did. This time he was much more pissed off at his own missed opportunity.
    • Since seeing this, Raditz has been trying to make passes at strong attractive female deities in hopes that one of them will serve as his key to catching up. He made a passing remark about how Karen Starr would make a great female Saiyan in a way that he knew would get spread out and catch her ears, as well as offered to serve as Android 21's assistant the minute she ascended. Naturally, these proposals have been rejected out of hand. Furthermore, She-Hulk, a friend of both of theirs, has had the message sent out that he needn't bother try with her. Vegeta and Turles note that per the usual, he's going about this in a "coward's way".
  • Once attacked Republic City on behalf of the GUAE while Avatar Korra was absent, hoping to earn some respect. However, Greed and Lin Beifong both used their powers and team coordinating skills to lead the defense of Lin's city in fending him off. Though they couldn't do much damage, they were able to stall him long enough for Vegeta to show up and send him packing.
    • This was the first time they had worked together as Beifong had previously rejected Greed's advances. Upon learning about this, Raditz was not too amused about once again being a forgotten kickstarter to other people's development.
  • Some people have joked about Raditz's hair in regard to going Super Saiyan, in particular, what Super Saiyan 3 would be like. With the recent reveal of his newly attained Super Saiyan 3 form, that question has finally been answered.
    • Vegeta's reaction to this is as follows:
    Vegeta: Hahahahahahaha! Well, it looks like the cowardly mouse has finally gained enough power to be worth some respect!
    • Overconfident of his power boost, Raditz engaged his prince in combat, only to promptly discover he was still outmatched when Vegeta turned Super Saiyan Blue. However, rather than kill him, Vegeta sent him off telling him this:
    Vegeta: Abandon this nonsense about taking revenge on Kakarot or myself, or gaining respect in the pond of scum they call GUAE. Get stronger, come back and fight me again, and then we'll see what you've got. Understand?
  • Was given the order again by Melkor to try and attack the World of Avatar, but refused this time, as he was far more interested in watching the Tournament of Power; partially in hopes that Universe 7 survives and he stands a chance at an honest revival, partially because he wants to see what the Saiyans from Universe 6 can do. He was surprised to see Frieza alongside the Universe 7 party, amused at how badly the tyrant and Vegeta got along, intrigued at the newfound strength of Kakarot's human friends and the guts of the old teacher, slightly gobsmacked at the U6 Saiyans' strength including the Broly-esque berserker Kale, surprisingly pissed throughout Frieza's entire betrayal gambit involving Gohan and playing Frost, but what truly caught him in disbelief was seeing Kakarot survive a Singularity by achieving Ultra Instinct, a power which even frightens the Dragon Ball multiverse's Physical Gods, as well as Vegeta push beyond his Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan power to fulfill a promise to one of the Universe 6 Saiyans:
    Raditz: WHAT THE HEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • With his father's ascension, Raditz finally learned the truth in a shouting match that Kakarot being sent off-world was for his own protection, not a mission to destroy Earth. Raditz and Bardock have agreed to patch things up for the sake of the family. Bardock is currently trying to teach Raditz to be less of a self-preserving coward. Because of this and the Super Saiyan 3 development, Babidi is no longer strengthening Raditz with his spells.
  • Well after being consumed in the Android 21 incident, Nappa finally ascended to the Pantheon. The former Saiyan General was glad to see his longtime charge and teammate, and unlike Vegeta this case wasn't complicated by said former charge executing him for failure and then turning to Kakarot's side. That said, Nappa has attempted to get Raditz to formally step away from Frieza for good, since he tried to stomach that overlord's rule to survive 21's schemes only to find it wasn't worth it.
  • Later, the Saiyan known as Paragus came to him with an offer to join forces and get payback against Vegeta, even acknowledging the forgotten fact that Raditz was actually regarded as an above-average warrior within the overall ranks of the Frieza Force. Glad to finally get some respect, Raditz accepted this. Not too fond of Kakarot's doppelganger Turles, though, who holds a low opinion of him regardless. After Paragus talked Bardock into joining, and then Bardock got Nappa on board, Raditz agreed to the conditions put in place by his father and the former colonel as to the missions they would take on, which included no full-time conscription, no ineffectual targets, and no attacks on Kakarot's friends aside from Vegeta. After hearing Nappa gloat in celebration that the Saiyans had now "freed themselves" of Frieza's domination once and for all, Raditz had to admit it felt nice.
  • "A fine display of dust.. if such were your intention. Is it my turn? May I show you some real power now?"

  • Allies: Greg Universe and Pearl, Garnet, Amethyst, Connie Maheswaran, Peridot, Izanami-No-Mikoto, BoJack Horseman, The Big Friendly Giant, Gaea, Maria Robotnik, Hazel Levesque
  • Complicated Relationship with: Steven Universe (her son)
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The Emperor of Mankind, and the other Diamonds
  • Opposes: The Child Abuse Supporters
  • Enemies: The Sleeper
  • Rose Quartz/Pink Diamond is one of the most important characters in her universe, in terms of how she has directly or indirectly influenced nearly every character in the series to some degree - in many cases, how her absence has affected them.
    • The original rebellion against the other Diamonds was started by her and Pearl, and her decision to fake her death when the other Diamonds refused to let her stop the colonization of Earth led to the survival of the human race, the corruption of nearly every other gem on Earth, the start of Era 2, and the Diamonds more or less disintegrating as a family unit.
    • Her decision to fake her death also led partly to the deterioration of Jasper’s mental state, given that Rose was her Diamond. As well as the “Famethyst” being sent to watch over the Human Zoo (though they are in a much better state mentally than Jasper is).
    • Later on, after giving birth to her son Steven, her passing was part of what caused the character arcs of the Crystal Gems in the main storyline, since she was previously their Living Emotional Crutch (a role that her son Steven took up later).
  • Her son Steven has issues with her, to say the least, considering that most of her actions came back to haunt him. While Steven knows that Rose never wanted her mistakes to cause him problems and the fact they did before he even turned 18 was more or less sheer coincidence, her attempts to fix things in the Pantheon or apologize haven’t been able to fix all of Steven’s trauma and issues with her.
  • Was previously the main thing keeping the Diamonds a semi-functional family unit before she faked her death and ran away. She claims to not miss the Diamonds, and has been avoiding them since her first encounter with them in several thousand years, when they ascended to the Pantheon at roughly the same time. They tried to talk to her. Rose's response was loud and (according to other people) expletive-filled.
    • To clear things up - she knows that they are trying to change, and was not opposed to them joining the GUAG's Ministry of Atonement. But eons of abuse at their hands has left her with very little love for them, and not much of a desire to try to mend that relationship on her end. No matter how much the other Diamonds are sorry... in the distant future, she might reconsider. But for the moment, them being sorry is too little, too late.
  • Due to the circumstances of her disappearance when she gave birth to Steven, it wasn't clear at first if she was actually dead or if she continued to exist dormant in his Gem, which was a contested subject that prevented her from ascending to the Pantheon. However, the Diamond Days arc finally concluded through the Pink Steven that emerged from Steven's Gem when White Diamond forcibly extracted it from his body that she was definitely gone for good, and so she was finally cleared as dead and therefore permissible for Pantheon ascension.
  • Is never found in her temple (which looks like her Room in the Beach House on Earth), partly because she prefers to be roaming the Pantheon and partly since she is the goddess of Present Absence.
  • Currently, she wants to spend time with Steven, since she has never had the chance to know him before. She was horrified to learn what had happened after she died, but is not sure how she can make it up to him. However, after some… initial friction… between the two, she is willing to give him his space until he is willing to approach her.
  • Don’t call her Pink Diamond or “My Diamond”. It’s not quite a Berserk Button, but it isn’t a name she wants to use anymore. Comparisons have been made that it’s similar to deadnaming someone who’s transgender. This particular fact has not helped the attempts of the other Diamonds to bond with her again.
  • The Emperor of Mankind (and thus, the Imperium) have a somewhat… conflicted opinion on her and the Crystal Gems. On one hand, they’re all aliens, but they also saved humanity despite being aliens, and in her case alien royalty. For that, he's willing to give them a pass, and if the Imperium’s alien issues ever boil over the Crystal Gems would likely be spared their wrath. Rose herself, on the other hand, sees the Emperor's treatment of the Primarchs as being far too similar to the Diamond's family relationship - and while he is more sympathetic and understandable in some ways than the Diamonds are, the Emperor is in a lot of ways the human version of the Diamonds. Considering what he is capable of and how he would probably react, she has never voiced this opinion to his face.
    • It should be noted that the Imperium’s opinion on the other Diamonds and Homeworld Gems in general is far clearer. If any of the Homeworld Gems, especially the Diamonds, ever backstabs the Imperium or betrays the GUAG, or gives them any reason to think they have done so, they will be ground to dust beneath humanity’s boots.
  • Heavily opposed to the Child Abuse Supporters due to her own history with the other Diamonds (said history of abuse is also why she avoids them even within the Pantheon despite their attempts to turn over a new leaf).
  • After learning that her sword had been destroyed by Blue Diamond when Connie Maheswaran tried to use it on her, she quickly went to speak with her, and assured her that there was no real grudge on her part. And that if she did have an issue, it was with Blue Diamond, not Connie herself. She also is trying to strike up some sort of friendship with both Connie and Peridot, since they are the newest members of the Crystal Gems in the Pantheon (not to mention, she and Connie are the only Crystal Gems in this sub-house).
    • Is also striking up a friendship with the newest members of the Crystal Gems, Lapis Lazuli and Bismuth; she started by making them her heralds.
  • While things were awkward at first when she arrived in the Pantheon with the other Crystal Gems, given that they all now knew everything she had been hiding, things are... not going back to the way that they were, but the newly arrived problems between them are being worked out. If nothing else, Pearl and Greg were both overjoyed to have her back without anything happening to Steven.
  • Currently seeing a therapist in the GUAG to help her work through her many psychological problems. Given how long said issues have had to sink in, it's slow going.
    • It should be noted that Rose currently does not seem to be capable of accessing her more destructive abilities, such as the ones used in "Pink Mode" by her son Steven. Some people think this is just due to her own regret at having cracked her first Pearl, "Volleyball", while others theorize it is a mental block she unknowingly placed on herself.
  • Has started developing a friendship with Izanami, originating at first because they both succumbed to Death by Childbirth. However, their lives being similar at several points beyond that started cementing a deeper relationship between them. Izanami herself is trying to get Rose to realize that she has changed over the years and become a better person, like Izanami herself did.
  • While she and BoJack Horseman are very different people, their similarly Dark And Troubled Pasts caused them to bond, considering they both involved Abusive Parents. Their shared self-loathing and issues with relating to other people even though they cared for them have led each to consider the other a kindred spirit of sorts. Albeit, considering said low self-esteem, their friendship has had its share of rough patches.
  • The Sleeper brings up… some bad memories, to say the least. The whole “turning everything into gems/crystal” part, and the infant Eldritch Abomination inside the Magic Meteor itself… yeah. Basically a more disturbing version of gem reproduction.
  • Nobody’s sure what Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth would do to Rose if she ever came into contact with it. Wonder Woman isn’t really in a big hurry to create additional stress for her fellow heroine, and has stated she only plans to use it on Rose with her permission.
  • Rose didn't initially understand the concept of marriage, since she didn't entirely understand human culture (and gem culture not having any equivalent of marriage, and Rose herself not being a legal human citizen). After having it explained to her, both Pearl and Greg have started to approach her on the subject. Whether she plans to marry both of them, just one of them, or neither of them, is not something she has told anyone else yet.
  • In her Pink Diamond form (which she rarely takes), she's a Large Runt compared to the other Diamonds, in addition to being their Token Good Teammate. She bonded rapidly with the Big Friendly Giant as a result of this.
  • There are more than a few gods who are... displeased with her actions in the past. While she's not a borderline The Friend Nobody Likes in the Grand United Alliance of Good like the other Diamonds are, she's not exactly Ms. Popularity, despite her Nice Girl personality.
  • Rose was Gaea’s High Priestess before she officially entered the Pantheon (before people realized that she didn't really work for the trope that Gaea represented), and while she isn’t always a fan of her methods, or an official member of the Grand United Alliance of Nature (yet), the two of them remain on good terms. Gaea is grateful to Rose herself for protecting Earth instead of trying to create another Gem colony, and if nothing else, makes an effort to treat Rose better than the other Diamonds did (whether it’s to ensure she’s semi-loyal to her, out of gratitude or kindness, both, or something else entirely depends on who you ask and/or Gaea’s mood).
  • As it turns out, someone in the Court of the Gods got things mixed up and declared Rose to be the High Priestess of Maria Robotnik as well. Rose has continued to speak with Maria after her own ascension, and the two remain on close terms. Opinion widely holds that part of the reason for this is because both of them are the White Sheep of their family. If nothing else, Rose is closer to and more trusting of Maria than she is to Gaea, her other former patroness.
  • Has an… odd relationship with Hazel Levesque. While the two get along fine, the fact that Rose was Gaea’s high priestess before the position was corrected, and her remaining on (mostly) good terms with Gaea to boot, has soured any camaraderie they might have beyond being friendly acquaintances within the GUAG.

Lesser Gods

    Impa 
Impa, Goddess of Legacy Characters (Sage of Shadow, Servant of the Goddess, Agent of the Goddess, General Impa)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/impa_collage_9.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Sheikah Eye symbol
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Member of the Sheikah, the shadow tribe, Undying Loyalty to Zelda, Last Known Member of the Sheikah, Ms. Exposition, Zelda's Nursemaid
  • Domains: Legacy, Shadow, Incarnation
  • Allies: Princess Zelda, Link, Lana, Midna, Fi, Ryu Hayabusa, Kasumi, Ayane, Alfred
  • Enemies: Ganondorf, Ghiraham, Demise, Cia, Zant, King Boo, Sadako Yamamura, Gengar, Shredder, Zed
  • Impa is a name associated with the woman of the Sheikah Tribe, a mysterious tribe who guarded the Royal Family of Hyrule (or more specifically, the Goddess Hylia). These incarnation of Impa has only one important purpose: to protect Princess Zelda and she intent to do so from any dangers.
  • Impa is constantly different from every incarnation, much like how Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf. Her appearance, as one can see, can differ in age, size, and method of mentorship, even as a large, fat woman. However, there are two archetypes that are consistent in her role of guardianship: one as a young warrior who will fight for her liege, and the other as an old mentor and nursemaid who leads through wisdom.
  • As her name is passed down from the Sheikah Tribe and given to women who would be given the purpose of protecting Princess Zelda, she is found to be a more suitable to this purpose of legacy than the Phantom, where he takes up the legacy to the point of being mistaken as "immortal."
  • Strangely, as she ascended in the Pantheon to guard her lady, many Gossip Stones sprung from the ground everywhere in the Pantheon. As she is the only known deity to understanding the Stones due to owning a Mask of Truth, she knows the secret and information of the Pantheon and some of the deities.
  • It is said that she made Zelda an honorary member of the Sheikah as Zelda assumed the identity of Sheik in order to hide from Ganondorf in his seven-year reign of terror.
  • Impa respects Alfred Pennysworth due to his loyalty and servitude to Bruce Wayne, much like her servitude to Princess Zelda.
  • Due to her training as a warrior resemble that of ninjas, she earned some respect by many ninja in such. Though she doesn't respect to evil ninjas as she had to deal with a splinter faction known as the Yiga Clan who sided with Ganon and betrayed their loyalty to the Goddess.
  • Due to the reclusive nature of her tribe, much of her culture and past is left in the shadows. It is only through some word of mouth that her people used to be an advanced civilization until they were feared by the people of Hyrule which forced them to abandoned them. Despite this, Impa expected the people would both feared and be tempted by the power and dependence of the technology, much like the Triforce.
  • Impa has been in charge of dealing with evil spirits as she once sealed away Bongo Bongo in the bottom of the Kakariko Village's well. With that said, she is more likely going to destroy them as they are proven to be too powerful for simple sealing. Considering that her village is near the Shadow Temple which hosts many evil spirits and the undead, she is not taking any chances with the dead in the Pantheon.
    • It is said that her people honored the dead as her village's graveyard is the resting place of many loyal citizens, the Royal Family of Hyrule, many Sheikahs, and even the Zora King. Her people would watch the spirits of the dead, even in their eternal slumber, making it clear that she is vigilant of spirit that may cause harm to the living.

    Zhao 
Zhao, God of Counter-Exemplars (Captain/Commander/Admiral Zhao, "Admiral Choi", "Zhao the Conquerer, Zhao the Moonslayer, ZHAO THE INVINCIBLE")
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/general_zhao_5.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The Fire Nation flag
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: First Major Opponent of the Avatar, Firebender, Glory Seeker, Bad Temper, Prideful, Wants to destroy the Moon Spirit without consideration, Sent into the Spirit World by the Ocean Spirit, Trapped in the Fog of Lost Souls for Eternity
  • Domains: Bad Examples, Admiral, Fire
  • Allies: Ozai, Azula, Miles Quaritch
  • Enemies: Zuko, Iroh, Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph, Appa and Momo, Korra, Tenzin, Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon, Princess Luna, Nightmare Moon, Selene, Nebby/Lunala, Tyrande Whisperwind, Thrawn, Ackbar, Euron Greyjoy, Twilight Sparkle
  • An ruthless officer of the Fire Nation and a dangerous Firebender, he has relentlessly pursued the Avatar in order to claim glory and spite his archrival, the then-exiled then-Prince Zuko. Through the contrast with Zuko's very real virtues, numerous standards and countless Pet the Dog moments, he ironically proves that the Fire Nation is not inherently evil.
    • His last moment in his life was the siege of the Northern Water Tribe, where he tried to kill the Moon Spirit, Tui. Though he succeeded in killing the Spirit, this moment sealed his fate as Aang and La the Ocean Spirit merged to destroy his invasion forces and was taken into the Spirit World by La (self-inflicted as he refused to take Zuko's hand out of pride). He was thrown into the Fog of Lost Souls, where he will forever wander in its mist, losing mind believing his self-glory and arrogance.
    • While he was ascended from the Pantheon, he was still insane from his experience in the Fog of Lost Souls. It was said that the GUAE rescued him from the Spirit World and recuperated him until he recovered from his mind. While he regained his arrogance, he still experienced some episodes as a result of his imprisonment, though Ozai doesn't seems to lead his rescue or even care about his fate.
  • This man is the rival of Zuko, butting heads in regards to who could capture the Avatar. He views him a failure for his exile, then a traitor upon learning that he was the Blue Spirit that freed Aang when he captured him. It becomes humiliating for him when he learned that Zuko is now the Fire Lord after Aang defeated Ozai. He still refuses to acknowledge Zuko's sovereignty out of petty arrogance and spiteful anger.
    • The Gaang are not happy to see Admiral Zhao again. Toph doesn't really seem to care all that much since she never met him once in her life, as she joined after Zhao was imprisoned in the Spirit World.
    • Tenzin recognized him as that crazy guy that he was rambling about "being a legend" and "capturing the Avatar for his lost glory" when he and his siblings were in the Fog of Lost Souls to look for his daughter, Jinora. The fact that he doesn't recognize him as a legend, not even mentioned as an adversary to his father, wound his pride quite a lot.
  • Many will not forget his "destiny" of destroying the Moon because his brash arrogance could have nearly destroyed the world as the result of the lost balance. Lunar deities of the Pantheon glare at him scornfully for murdering Tui the Moon Spirit.
    • Even Nightmare Moon was concerned with his moon-destroying "destiny" that she was willing to end opposition with the Protectors of Night and Day to prevent a disaster like that from happening again.
    • Tyrande will tear him a new one if he were to do something like what he did to Tui to her people. Hell, there is a precedent for that considering what happened to her after Telldrassil burned.
  • He is an Admiral of the Fire Navy who lead its forces for the capture of the Avatar and sieging the North Pole. However, not many naval officers took him very seriously, considering that the one time he fought Aang, he inadvertently destroyed his ships because Aang was making fun of him. Thrawn viewed this man as a disgrace to the navy for his negligence.
  • Arrogant and ill-tempered, his firebending is strong but very uncontrollable. He once tried picking fights with other fire deities in an Agni Kai, but it comes to an end when Zuko decided to put an end to his persistence. Zuko defeated him easily since he had a lot from the last year of the War, but Zhao refuses to accept his defeat from the exile.
  • Knowledge seekers were furious when they learned that when he found Wan Shi Tong's Library, he took the knowledge of the Moon Spirit and destroy much of the information stored that could harm the Fire Nation. Such disrespect practically banned him from the House of Knowledge.

  • Opposed: Nanashi
  • Disappointed in: Robb Stark, Rhaegar Targaryen, Nero
  • Cleopatra VII Philopator is the last pharaoh of the Ptolemaic dynasty, and the last pharaoh in over 3000 years of Egyptian history. Born in a time where the Roman power held a grip on Egyptian power. While her father Ptolemy XII was a weak vassal, she was determined to restore the might of the pharaohs and independence. She would go on to shape Roman history and become one of the most influential pharaohs in history, however would fall in battle and kill herself rather than be subject to humiliation.
  • Considered by many through history, and her own time, as the World's Most Beautiful Woman. This isn't exactly true; while not ugly, she wasn't too spectacular. However her intelligence and charm, combined with her famous seduction of Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, led her to get a Historical Beauty Upgrade. She competes with many goddesses in her house for who's the most attractive. Notably had a rap battle with Marilyn Monroe.
  • Realizes that she is one of several pharaohs in the Trope Pantheon. Determined to prove herself as the greatest leader Egypt has, she competes with all of them. That rivalry is very strong with Ramses, who's in top billing for the one of the greatest pharaohs ever. She admires his desire to keep Egyptian values though believes he goes too far. Ramses considers her somewhat hypocritical as her family is Greek, yet identifies completely as Egyptian. There's no good will towards Apocalypse and Nyarlathotep however, for obvious reasons.
  • Claims to be the reincarnation of Isis, though Osiris says that's bull. Zia Rashid and a lot other other magicians in the House of Life don't have a high opinion of her since in her universe the fall of Egypt was partly caused by her failed attempt to host Isis. While she keeps Hellenistic customs, she promotes the Egyptian Pantheon. As such, she opposes YHVH like so many others.
  • She was not pleased at all to learn that the Caligula would try to rule as a pharaoh in Egypt. She considers the man a complete disgrace to the lineage of her lover, Julius Caesar. She was rather upset to learn that the last of his line in power was Nero. Not that she dislikes her, she does doesn't think she should be the final link to her beloved.
  • Had a rather turbulent relationship with her family. Granted, the Ptolemies were infamous for familial backstabbing and the more reasonable/compassionate members of the House of Family would rather her not visit. She spent a good portion of her life trying to bump off her sister Arsinoe, and spent time co-ruling with her brother-husband while at each other's throats. She can sympathize with Azula over this.
  • Competes with other famed female rules from history. Right now, that includes Elizabeth the First, Artoria Pendragon and Jeanne D'Arc. It's all a Friendly Rivalry, as the four respect each other's achievements. Is a straight up ally with Daenerys Targaryen. The two are products of Royal Inbreeding, and the last of a once glorious line of rulers. She really respects what she's done and her willpower, hoping the Mother of Dragons succeeds where she has failed.
  • Is thankful of Xena and Gabrielle for saving her life from an assassination attempt. While they couldn't prevent her death, they did keep Egypt out of Roman hands for the time being in their world.
  • Managed to seduce both Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, both who fathered her children, which was one of the main reasons Rome considered her such a threat. Allegedly she sent herself to Caesar in a rolled up carpet. Her and Caesar were overjoyed to see each other once again, though they are trying to take a more professional relationship at the moment given everything that's happened. She despises Akechi Mitsuhide for his betrayal, as it reminds her of Brutus'.
  • Seen often in the Persons of Desire sub-house. In terms of consorts and seductresses, she is very impressed by Margaery Tyrell and her rise in power, especially with handling a psychopathic brat and a Puppet King. Sad to see her consumed by wildfire, though hopes her literary counterpart has a lot more success. Contrasting this is her disappointment with Robb Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen; the former for letting his Sex for Solace utterly doom him and the latter for screwing over the realm due to his love for Lyanna Stark.
  • Feels plain old sorry for Romeo and Juliet due to how their love went. Given her own relationship with Mark Antony, it stings to see how they ended up. She found it mildly interesting that like them, she was a subject that the Bard wrote about. Sometimes she joins the Virgin Queen in watching Shakespeare's plays.
  • Very rich, and refuses to let anyone in the pantheon get their hands on her treasures. When she committed suicide by asp or overdose, she managed to make sure the Romans would never get their hands on it. Became really angry when Fafnir managed to steal her gold.
  • May have some demonic influence ties to her. It's said she is a demon queen of lust, and the epitome of Fan Disservice. Cleopatra is vehemently against this incarnation due to the Historical Villain Upgrade and claims it's an imposter, though Dante does not believe this. She's a lot more pleased with her SMT iteration however. She was summoned with specific body parts of 1465 women with the hope of making a world of "peace and salvation". Despite showing a stunning amount of power in her new demonic form, she was ultimately defeated, killing herself rather than dying by the hands of the Hunter sent to defeat her.
  • Recently served as a Servant, existing as an Assassin and spirit of magical and bewitching beauty, and may have been a magical girl. Ironically, the fact that she was one of the Assassin Brotherhood's first enemies has not been overlooked.
    • When Julius Caesar ascended as a Saber-class Servant, she called out to him with a very familiar-sounding "CAESAR!!!", earning her a friendly rivalry with Joseph Joestar; once she learned about his crossdressing caper, she volunteered to help him perfect the craft. Naturally, he refused... but that golden snake hovering around her looked a lot like a Stand, which she denied, as litigation would be too much of a hassle for her.
    • Her time as an Assassin-class Servant also brought her into contact with Michael Jackson, and she's working on picking up the choreography for "Remember the Time".
  • Beerus was confused upon seeing Cleopatra. She looked distinctively like Helles, the Goddess of Destruction of Universe 2, and was wondering what she was doing in the Trope Pantheon when most gods of destruction are busy with the Tournament of Power. He was informed otherwise. She smirked at this, knowing her beauty is comparable to a Cosmic Entity who values beauty.
  • Has been portrayed by a number of actors, such as Claudette Colbert, Vivien Leigh and Elizabeth Taylor. As such she's said to resemble Ellie Andrews, Scarlett O'Hara and Amy March. River Song once impersonated her...132 years after her death.
  • She also totally did not use pharaoh magic empowered with the work of slaves cheered by the Ouendan in order to attain her beauty, otherwise she's a fat slob. What kind of story is that!?
  • Has a good relationship with Asterix and Obelix, who once helped build a palace for her. Both are often seen complimenting her nose.
  • Can also be found in Physical Attractiveness.

  • Symbol: The House of Plantagenet's Coat of Arms
  • Theme Song: his Horrible Histories song
  • Alignment: Varying between Neutral Good and True Neutral, but definitely Chaotic Evil under Shakespeare
  • Portfolio: Deadpan Snarker, being the cause of the Wars of the Roses
  • Domains: History, Storytelling, Villany
  • Superior: William Shakespeare
  • Allies: Oda Nobunaga, many deities from France, Caligula
    • His Shakespeare version: Scar, Macbeth, Lady Macbeth
  • Enemies: Lady Macbeth, Macbeth
    • His Shakespeare version: Many competent rulers in the Pantheon, Ratigan
  • Opposes: William Shakespeare
  • Pities: Tyrion Lannister
  • Spiritual Successor: Stannis Baratheon
  • Followers: King John of England, George III of Britian, Mary of Scotland, Elizabeth I, Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, Lizzie Borden,
  • His ascension is a long fought battle from many portrayal of Richard and a society that admires him who all want to verify his reputation and separate those portrayal from the famous Shakespearean one that influenced many of the following vilified ones. The Pantheon came with a compromise: They still acknowledge the Shakespearean portrayal because how influential it is, but agree to give him a temple that acknowledge him being vilified.
  • Has a tense relationship with Shakespeare given that the writer is the one that doing the aforementioned version of him. Not help by the fact that Richard is significantly more likely to slip into his Shakespeare version when visiting the latter temple.
  • He and Oda Nobunaga are surprisingly on friendly term despite Richard taking one title away from the latter. Reasons were given that Oda appreciates someone else to take off the workload and sympathize with being vilified. The same story happens with Caligula.
  • He has good reputation with French deities for one of the few people that helps them to repel the myth of Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys that is usually associated with them.
  • Doesn't particularly like Robin Hood given that his myths usually vilified King John, one of his followers.
  • If there's one thing his Shakespeare versions and the other versions can agree on is how both of them pities Tyrion Lannister for being discriminated. More so for the Shakespeare version giving that Tyrion is based off of him.
  • Can't help noticing how similar Stannis is to him. Stannis still slightly disapproves off how Richard had illegitimate children but holds respect for his lawful methods.
  • His more sympathetic portrayals and his Shakespeare version differ widely on their relationship with Macbeth and Lady Macbeth for being usurpers. Richard's sympathetic versions are very displeased with the fact that Macbeth shares many look-a-likes with him. This also the same case with Scar.
  • The Shakespeare version of Richard and the more sympathetic version absolutely despises each other to the point that each have their own side in the temple and ban the other from entering. This has numerous incidents when one of their look a like visit and enter the wrong side:
    • Sherlock Holmes accidentally entered his temple during one of his pursue and ended up almost getting killed.
    • The Shakespeare version of Richard is seeking to destroy Ratigan because the mouse has been using the fact that their voice sounds similar to commit crime.
    • Bilbo Baggins is also on bad term because his simple personality clashes with the Shakespeare version of Richard and the fact that they share the same look.
    • Richard made an exception for Gandalf and Magneto though, mostly because that they can ignore him if they want because of how powerful they are.

  • Tutankhamun was a young pharaoh from the 18th Dynasty, ruling from about 1334-1325 BC over Ancient Egypt. Believed to be the son of Heretic Pharaoh Akhenaten, he became pharaoh young and lost his life at just 18. He would've remained an obscurity had his tomb not had the fortune of avoiding graverobbing for over 3200 years. Howard Carter discovered the tomb in 1922, proving one of few intact mummies and becoming an iconic figure of the times.
  • It was initially believed that "King Tut" was killed by his vizier and eventual successor Ay, however evidence shows it was probably a broken leg that got infected and malaria. The archeologists are thought to have damaged his skull. Of course, this doesn't mean he likes the evil chancellors in the pantheon. By contrast, he appreciate honest advisors like Tyrion Lannnister.
  • He also wasn't a mere inconsequential Puppet King, at least not as much as you'd expect the young pharaoh. His leather armor has marks of cuts and rust, along with various injuries suggest he was a Warrior Prince. He is quite capable of taking care of himself, though he has ailments like scoliosis. Still, he has sympathy for those like Tommen who are made puppets of those around them, and wishes he lived to become a strong king in his own right.
  • Tutankhamun respects those who are determined and tough even if they're disabled, much like himself. His disabilities are down to being the product of incest-his parents are thought to be siblings, and he married his sister. He doesn't get why those in the pantheon were grossed out by this, since Ancient Egypt haven't got much of a taboo over it, particularly among royalty. That's not to say he's insensitive to those disgusted at realizing they're related to their significant other; he finds Oedipus tragic because of how this and fate screwed him over.
  • Tutankhamun finds King Aerys II Targaryen to be a disturbed individual, and the fact like him the Mad King is the result of Brother–Sister Incest is something that worries him. King Tut's tried to console himself by pointing out that Aerys's madness was more the result of increasing paranoia and envy than genetics, and only a handful of Targaryens were truly mad. The young pharaoh doesn't care for Mordred either, being an incestuous rebel and traitor to the king/his father and uncle.
  • Much of his reign was reversing the religious upheaval caused by the Heretic Pharaoh, who he's reluctant to refer to as his father, and will get angry if people refer to him by his birth name of Tutankhaten. Ironically the monotheism that Akhenaten pursued would become a whole lot more mainstream thanks to the Abraham faiths he predates. Still, while he only truly opposes YHVH because of His inherent pushiness and desire to supplant other faiths, Tutankhamun would prefer the monotheistic gods in the pantheon to leave him be.
  • Tutankhamun understands where Ramses II is coming from and his frustration with the God of Abraham, and has respect for a fellow pharaoh not all too removed from him. However he feels his pursuit of the Hebrews goes a bit too far. He is on better terms with the more reasonable pharaohs in the pantheon, particularly Yami Yugi. And Tutankhamun was disturbed by Apocalypse(who he regards as a usurper and threat to Egypt) and Nyarlathotep.
  • Tutankhamun was welcomed to the House of Royalty. Though turned off by some madmen like King Aerys, there were good princes and royalty to meet him. As a charming and honorable prince, Tutankhamun has some fondness for Prince Eric. Due to his handicaps, King Tut is empathetic to Nunnally's wheelchair status and was impressed to see she became the empress of Britannia.
  • Was overjoyed to see that many Egyptian deities had entered the pantheon and he could talk to them in person. And he was even more overjoyed to learn they were proud of him for playing an important part in removing heretic Akehnaten's monotheism and restoring their roles in Egyptian life. Unfortunately both Apophis and Set had ascended as well, the former particularly horrifying the boy king.
  • Tutankhamun believes that Sutekh the Destroyer is some alternate form of Apophis, given they're complete omnicidal maniacs. His pharaoh association is rather sinister. Others he was quick to put on his enemy include the Spirit of the Millennium Ring and Zorc, for being Ancient Egyptian-based villains seeking to bring an end to the world. Plus the former is a graverobber, and really that gets under King Tut's nerves. Tutankhamun's there to help Ryou fight him/them off.
  • Holds contempt for the House of Thieves, and above them graverobbers like Seth Briars. Given his belief that the body needs to be preserved to have a proper afterlife, and how most pharaohs ended up being robbed, it's completely justified. The monstrous Ah Puch's treatment of the dead is absolutely horrific for Tutankhamun. The House of Vengeance believes he may have cursed those who found him given the mysterious deaths of some involved with his uncovering. However King Tut has explained that most of these are coincidences, and his mummy is being treated with dignity.
  • Tutankhamun and his father have learned of The Tomb Kings and know that they took a lot of inspiration from their own domain of Ancient Egypt. They're impressed by how they are a lot more active in death than the pharaohs. On the ascended Tomb Lords, father and son had an immediate feeling and disgust for Nagash the Undying due to how cruel, omnicidal and utterly devoid of redeeming qualities he was. Settra, however, they remain neutral on so long as he doesn't interfere with them.
