Pantheon / Insects

Go To

For obvious reasons, the House of Insects is considered to be one of the least popular houses in the Pantheon (unless you’re fascinated by bugs, obviously). That's not to say that it's all that bad, it is just that there are many gods who would never come anywhere near it. There are arguments whether Queen Sectonia would be head of the sub-house since she is the Goddess of Insect Queens. Of course, whether she's head or not, she does have a seat here, as you can see below.

Ragnaros the Firelord is not welcome in this house, because of his tendency to set things on fire and because many of the gods don't find it funny he uses "INSECT" as a derogatory term.

  • Mothra is among the most significant kaiju that Godzilla has encountered and while the two have gotten into conflict multiple times, they are also capable of working together under the right circumstances. Mothra's presence can easily be determined via the arrival of a mysterious egg and a pair of small fairies known as the Shobjin are affiliated with Mothra. A Mothra larvae hatches after some time, which is then followed by a large cocoon appearing in some area. After enough time has passed, an adult Mothra emerges from the cocoon and engages in battle against an enemy. Although these battles end with the threat defeated, the adult Mothra perishes during that conflict. In the aftermath of all this, another egg is discovered, proving that even if one Mothra dies, another will eventually carry on the legacy of its parents.
  • A group of explorers managed to find a giant egg during one of their expeditions, prompting some questions as to where it came from. They decided to leave the egg alone for the time being so that they can get someone to explain what's going on, but by the time they returned, the egg hatched and a larvae emerged. The group was also introduced to a couple of diminutive fairies who stated that they were associated with the egg and creature, known as Mothra. During that time, some giant malevolent creatures attacked the area where the larvae was at and after a nasty battle, the creature wrapped itself in silk, presumably to rest. The explorers left the area again, suspecting that something will emerge from that cocoon at some point. Their suspicions were later proven true when those same monsters attacked a large city, with Godzilla trying to fend off those threats. Just as things started to get dire with Godzilla taking significant damage, the fully-grown Mothra swooped onto the scene and attacked Godzilla's enemies. The battle grew more intense and while Mothra put up a good fight, it was finished off by one of the monsters, but that threat was weakened enough for Godzilla to land the finishing attack on it. A few days following the incident, reports of an egg identical to the one the explorers found previously surfaced, leading many to surmise that it wouldn't be the last of Mothra.
  • Despite the whole Death Is Cheap principle that's prevalent across the Pantheon, Mothra isn't a deity that really falls into that rule. Given how there's a new Mothra egg that shows up whenever the previous Mothra dies, the House of Life and Death did mention that not only have they've never seen a Mothra resurface at that house, but that they've never seen any additional eggs show up there. It's mostly been reported that any additional Mothra eggs that have appeared tend to be in more nature-based settings.
  • While it is the giant butterfly that's prevalent in the world of Godzilla, it's not the only one that's flying around making sure threats are in check. Mothra Leo, who is the son of a previous Mothra and has access to a wide selection of powers, learned about the arrival of regular Mothra and set out to meet her. Although it's safe to say that the Mothra in the Pantheon isn't the same as the one that gave birth to him, Mothra Leo was more than willing to team up with her whenever there's something threatening the world.
    • Things are a lot more contentious between the Mothra lineage and Battra, who is a darker counterpart of Mothra that is much more extreme in trying to keep nature in balance. A previous Mothra was able to reason with Battra and defeat Godzilla at one point, though if Battra were to work with the Mothra line again, it's likely only to happen if there's something dangerous that both can't ignore (which may or may not include Godzilla on one of his bad days).
  • Given their interest in insects, Sig and Agitha were among those who wanted to meet up with Mothra in earnest. It came as a bit of a surprise to them that Mothra was worshipped as a goddess of sorts back in its homeworld. While they don't have a lot of time in their hands to get involved with Mothra's actions, Sig and Agitha are more than willing to provide Mothra their support no matter how small that support might be and are grateful for what Mothra does.
    • Nausicaä was another deity fond of bugs that took an interest in in Mothra, though that ended up being to a much greater degree than Sig and Agitha after learning about Mothra's role as being a protector of Earth. Having been used to industrial problems that threatened nature's serenity, Nausicaä is more than willing to go along with Mothra whenever the butterfly is busy fighting against monsters that threaten the harmony of nature. Mothra has also become protective of Nausicaä given her devotion and resolve.
  • Although a guardian of Earth, it soon became clear that Mothra wasn't the only one that had that duty in the Pantheon. There were a multitude of Earth protectors in the Pantheon that wanted to meet Mothra and gain a powerful ally to help out with their goals. Captain Planet was able to secure an alliance with Mothra for many of the same reasons that he was able to become friends with Mothra Leo.
    • Despite sharing similar goals when it comes to Earth's protection, the methods of some deities in making sure nature is thriving has proven questionable in Mothra's view. Viridi, who has gotten along with Battra, was among those that Mothra is mixed about and their encounter ended up being rather tense. San, who has been making an effort to try and get Battra to limit his attacks on those that truly threatened the environment, was with Viridi during the latter's meeting with Mothra. San explained to Mothra about herself and Viridi and although the butterfly was much more understanding about San's plight and how she got better thanks to Ashitaka, Mothra is still wary about Viridi in the long run.
  • One of the missions that Susan Murphy and her monster friends took part in involved helping out Mothra Leo fend off some dangerous monsters that the butterfly was struggling with. As much as Susan and friends put in the effort to help out, it wasn't enough to fend off the threats. The team was surprised to see another giant butterfly show up and help them out when they and Mothra Leo were in danger. After the monsters were taken care of, Insectosaurus took a lot of interest in the regular Mothra and the team learned a lot about it, especially Mothra's role in protecting Earth. Susan and co. are more than thankful to have someone like Mothra to help out in addition to Mothra Leo.
  • The Mothra lineage has long been used to fighting an assortment of giant monsters that threatened the planet in more ways than one. Not only does the Pantheon house such threats, but Mothra also has to go against an assortment of others that are willing to destroy Earth out of malice. Villainous pyromancers such as Ragnaros and The Firebird (with the latter being a major source of fear for Mothra) have proven exceptionally problematic as not only is their capacity to spread destructive fire great, but their powers can potentially take care of Mothra at a much quicker rate than normal.
  • Albert Wesker has been someone who has been looking at the DNA of various creatures so that he can improve his various experiments and try and take over the world. Hearing about Mothra's strength motivated him greatly to pursue methods in trying to extract DNA from the creature, especially after learning about how Mothra's DNA is apparently valuable. Given how powerful the kaiju is and how resistant it will be against anyone trying to target it, Wesker is more than willing to bide his time to make sure his plan of getting his hands on Mothra's DNA works out. Wesker has also told Birkin about this, with the latter having apparently stored a poisonous moth in his lab back then and Birkin is considering looking further into Mothra's capabilities with Wesker's help.
  • Learning about The Radiance, a moth-like creature that uses mind-control on its victims and is capable of unleashing a plague that can kill a large number of beings and bring about environmental ruin, was something that upset Mothra significantly. What caused Mothra to become enraged was learning that The Radiance tried to take control of Mothra Leo and Battra at one point just to try and get some powerful beings on her side. Mothra opted to fight back against The Radiance for what it did, with the latter being prepared to brainwash Mothra and have it join The Radiance's Hive Mind. However, Mothra Leo, Battra, and Zeratul arrived just in time to make sure that Mothra didn't fall victim to The Radiance and the four were able to defeat The Radiance. The Radiance is one of the handful of enemies that Mothra, Mothra Leo, and Battra are willing to fight against together given how dangerous The Radiance is to the Pantheon and themselves.
  • It can also be found in Symbolism, though the Shobjin or Mothra's other heralds that are associated with the butterfly are usually at that place instead of the butterfly having that as a resting spot.
  • Also has a spot in the Pantheon Caretakers in the Main House.

  • Enemies: King Ghidorah, Deathwing, Gigan, Hedorah, Hexxus, Lich King, Gohma Vlitra, Ragnaros The Firelord, SpaceGodzilla
  • Opposed by: Spongebob and Patrick
  • It was pretty much a normal day in the pantheon, well, as normal it can get, when millions of tiny sparkling butterflies filled the area. Before anybody could process what was going on, they gathered in one place, combining together until what was left was a giant insect kaiju. Mothra has arrived.
  • The Mothra that is part of the pantheon is very different compare to others. For one, it's male while past others were female. Another is that he takes a much more active role in protecting the Earth. He is also refer to as Leo most of the time.
    • There's also a theory that Leo might actually be immortal. This is a large contrast to the other Mothras before it who were known to die, with their children taking their place.
  • Leo is well known to gain new powers out of nowhere. He also have many different forms of himself. It's because of this that he made allies with certain Shonen heroes like Naruto and Ichigo as they too are known to gain new powers over time.
    • Mothra has also been seen with the HappinessCharge Pretty Cures as they are the goddesses of the New Powers as the Plot Demands. The girls enjoy the company of Leo, his Shobojins and Fairy.
  • As the guardian of the Earth, Leo natural oppose those who do it harm. While there is the evil Kaijus of King Ghidorah and Hedorah. There's also Hexxus, Lich King, and Gohma Vlitra who also harm the world and the people in it.
    • He did found allies in protecting the planet with Captain Planet. He also made friends with another Earth guardian in Usagi Tsukino who sometimes have a butterfly motif.
  • While Leo never teamed up with Godzilla in the mortal realm, he has made allies with the one in the pantheon. Both have a very import role for the Earth; Mothra defends it while Godzilla keeps it in check.
    • Because of Leo's immense power, people are looking to him to act as a sort of countermeasure against Godzilla if he were to ever go out of control.
  • Both Spongebob and Patrick are very afraid of Mothra. It's because they are reminded of the monster that ate their friend wormy. Yeah, they weren't told that wormy, a caterpillar, was the monster.
  • Like Godzilla, Leo has ventured in the Spirit World. In there, he made friends with both Aang and Korra, the Avatars. He also seems fond of one of their giant spirit trees as it reminds him of the tree that helped him before.
  • To say that Agitha was overjoyed at Mothra's ascension would be an understatement. When the Princess of Bugs saw the mighty kaiju, she couldn't help but squee over him. She hoping to one day take a ride on his back
  • Despite his name, Mothra does not eat clothes. So there is no fear of it eating Senketsu.
  • Leo once mistook Volcorana as another Mothra since she looks similar to one. While it turn out to be false, he still became friends with her.
  • Mothra once heard the ordeals of a deity called Ragnaros the Firelord who wants to burn and consume the world. Naturally, as an Earth Protector, Leo made him an enemy.

    The Radiance

  • A primordial goddess of light, the Radiance had gifted bugkind with the unity of mind but at the cost of their individuality. Along came the Pale King, who, in addition to freeing bugkind from the Radiance's control, went out of his way to ensure that the Radiance was forgotten by her former subjects. The Radiance, angered by this turn of events, responded by unleashing a plague upon the denizens of Hallownest that left them as mindless husks as punishment for turning their backs on her. In an attempt to protect Hallownest from the plague, the Pale King created Vessels made entirely out of void, and successfully sealed her in one of said Vessels. Now, however, the Pale King and the Vessels are no longer around to stop her. Now, the light will no longer be forgotten.
  • Before she was revealed to the Pantheon, the House of Insects had went dark, and all communications between the house and the rest of the pantheon had came to an abrupt end. Nobody knew why communications ceased completely nor did they know what exactly happened to the house. When a scout team consisting of Agitha, Shino Aburame and Sig was sent to investigate, they found the entire house in ruins, bug deities driven into a hateful frenzy, and large orange boils that have overtaken sizeable chunks of the house. At the center of it all was Volcarona, its normally peaceful blue eyes now colored an orange hue and its white fur covered in cysts. While he denies it to this day, Agitha and Sig assert that the sight of the heavily-infected Volcarona had left Shino screaming in horror.
    • Wanting to understand what kind of tragedy had befallen the house, the team had Volcarona transported to the House of Health and Diseases in hopes of finding out what kind of plague was causing such devastation. Several diagnostics later, it was revealed that at the center of Volcarona's mind was a few platforms adrift in a sunlit sky. Before anything could be done, the sun, having grown wings, immediately teleported out of Volcarona's mind and back into the House of Insects, revealing itself as the Radiance in the process.
    • Realizing that they wouldn't be able to rid the Pantheon of the Radiance, the scout team, having recruited Zeratul after learning of the Radiance's weakness to the Void, began taking measures to limit the Radiance's influence by trapping her in a nearby, void-enshrouded temple and having the Dream Weavers of the Pantheon heal Volcarona and any other insects that the Radiance had infected. While the Radiance was here to stay, at least she would not be able to terrify the Pantheon's resident insects as easily as she could before.
  • Having created an infection that effectively toppled the Kingdom of Hallownest via invading it's inhabitants dreams, the Radiance managed to pique the interest of many a disease-ridden deity within the Pantheon. This summarily resulted in an unspoken arms race over who can subdue and contain her first between the likes of Albert Wesker, who wishes to obtain a sample of the infection in order to strengthen the Uroboros virus, and Ruvik, who believes that the Radiance's Dream Walker abilities could enhance his control over the STEM system by tenfold.
    • Nurgle and his followers, for the most part, consider her a welcome addition to the Pantheon, but have found themselves confused over the Radiance's desire to punish her former subjects with her infection. After all, why would she bless said subjects with such a wonderful plague if she was so intent on punishing them for their disobedience?
    • Many a good Dream Weaver within the Pantheon are repulsed by the Radiance. Ysera is reminded far too much of how she herself was corrupted by the Emerald Nightmare whenever she thinks of the Radiance, Haruto Tsukishiro finds the Radiance's dream-induced infections to be beyond the pale, Princess Luna fears that the Radiance may not be content with controlling the minds of bugs and may try to move onto ponies next. In stark contrast, Dream Weavers such as Freddy Krueger and Antasma love having the Radiance around, and believe that her presence can help expand their influence across the Pantheon's dreams.
  • Many had predicted that she would naturally gravitate towards Galeem, given that they are both horrifyingly evil deities of light. Which made it all the more surprising when the Radiance became engaged in a bitter mutual rivalry with Galeem, with the Radiance under the assumption that something like Galeem will cause people to forget about her and Galeem finding the Radiance's infection too disorderly for his liking. The only reason the Radiance hasn't thrown her lot in with Dharkon is that he keeps attacking her under the mistaken belief that she is one of Galeem's allies.
    • Unsurprisingly, this rivalry extends to Galeem's ally, Zamasu. Unlike Galeem, however, the rivalry between the Radiance and Zamasu is more one-sided on the Radiance's part as Zamasu, who had just discovered that the Radiance was only able to have her vengeance on her former subjects because of a lone statue that a few unfortunate miners had dug up, considers her to be just as weak as the deities he had slain in his own universe.
    • In spite of all this, however, the Radiance had found a kindred spirit in Lumine, who is also a light-associated villain who sought to enslave/destroy his subjects. The fact that the Radiance greatly resembles Lumine's final form helps.
  • Wanting to ensnare powerful deities into her Hive Mind, the Radiance once tried to infect the likes of Mothra Leo and Battra. While she was successful for a brief moment, the two moths were thankfully broken from their waking comas by a nearby Zeratul. From that point onward, the two moths would find themselves teaming up to combat the Radiance whenever possible not only to avenge their previous infection, but also to prevent the Radiance's plague from devastating the environment like it did with the Infected Crossroads.
  • Being from a Dark Souls-inspired Metroidvania, it was only natural that the Radiance made enemies with the Chosen Undead, the Bearer of the Curse, and the Ashen One. Still, the three Dark Souls protagonists have admitted that they love having the Radiance around, as having a light-associated deity around that they can beat up without rendering their efforts All for Nothing has proven to be extremely cathartic for them.
  • Also has a spot in the House of Symbolism.

Beelzebub's typical form.

  • Intermediate God (Greater God as Baal)
  • Symbol: His staff with his wings coming out of it
  • Theme Music: Beelzebub
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil (as Beelzebub/Baal/Baal Zebub), Chaotic Good (as Zebul/Takajo Zett), Lawful Evil (as Beelzebu)
  • Portfolio: Demonic Lord Of The Flies, Big Creepy-Crawlies, Shock and Awe, Dark Is Evil, Bonus Boss, The Worm That Walks, Demonized Old God, Once Being A Sexy Dominatrix, Sinister Angel As Beelzebu, Dark Skinned Human and Deity Forms
  • Domains: Insects, Darkness, Filth, Gluttony, Godhood, Lightning
  • Interested in: Shino Aburame, Agitha, Midora, the Deviljho and Gluttony
  • Allies: Lucifer, Mara and the Grand United Alliance of Chaos, the other Beelzebub, the other Beelzebub, Naoki Kashima, Kazuya Minegishi and Hibiki Kuze, Makoto Yuki, Kotone Shiomi, Yu Narukami, Ren Amamiya, Dracula, Gul'dan, Fraudrin, Nurgle, Typhus, Beelzemon, Beetlejuice, Stratos
  • Enemies: YHVH and the Grand United Alliance of Law, Misty, Ragnaros the Firelord, Flynn, Spawn, spider gods, The Radiance, the House of Angels, Malthael
  • Weirded out by: Ren Hoek
  • Next to the Devil himself, Beelzebub is the most well-known demon. The demonized form of a Philistine god worshiped in Ekron, often referred to as Baal Zabul in his true form, he is seen as a demon associated with flies. Usually seen either as one of the devil's alias, his right hand man or the demon who rules over the sin of gluttony. Whatever the form, this Beelzebub serves as The Dragon to the bringer of chaos, Lucifer.
  • Ascended soon after the creation of the Grand United Alliance of Chaos by urging of his master. Out of all of the Forces of Chaos, he is the closest Lucifer can call a 'right-hand fly'; Beelzebub is fiercely loyal to the Morning Star. Though his true loyalties lie with Lucifer, Beelzebub is willing to work with those who either A) defeat him in combat and thus prove they deserve to command him, or B) show a sufficient dedication to the ways of Chaos. As such, he fought alongside Dracula himself on a whim on one occasion.
  • Was one of the demons present for the creation of the Demi-Fiend; he will be the first one to praise Naoki's power, as he witnessed it firsthand during their match together. Beelzebub later tried to convince Set to join the cause of chaos, pointing out they are both demonized deities. Set turned it down, saying that while he relates to his fate he isn't interested in the factions of law and chaos. Yes he's a chaotic deity, but not consummately so.
  • Not the only Beelzebub, however he states to be the original. Here are some interactions with other Lords of the Flies.
    • Not technically Beelzebub, but heavily based on him is Beelzemon. Already an ally of Lucifer, he is pleasantly surprised to learn that Beelzemon is willing to work with him. He found they share gluttony, but for the biker it's not hunger for food but hunger for power, something he is fine with.
    • A cuter female Beelzebub is the Token Good Teammate of the Seven Mortal Sins, driven by Horror Hunger and lacks the excess of the fly. Gets along less with him, but he's fond of the girl in his own way. There's another cute female Beelzebub that he's fond of as well
    • Baby Beel shows promise for Beelzebub, however this is a family name of the Sin Lords of Gluttony. This might mean he is a descendant, but the Lord of the Flies is silent on his ultimate ambition for the child.
    • Not explicit, but in addition to being a Satanic Archetype Betelguese takes many traits of the Lord of the Flies; similar name, is filthy and associated with bugs. Beelzebub likes his style. And though not a Beelzebub, Kazuya's position of King of Bel has made him an ally of the Lord of the Flies, and by extension he is an ally of Hibiki Kuze.
  • People assumed Stratos of the Sumeragi Swordsmen was him in human form, based on gluttony when it comes to his team's Seven Deadly Sins due to being experimented upon by Sumeragi. This comes with a strong fly motif, his powers and personality: Stratos can transform into swarms of fly-like particles that can break down any and all matter, and as a guy with a truly insatiable hunger he uses it to devour anything in sight of him. He was even called the "Lord of the Flies". Though they aren't one in the same, the sheer amount of similarities led the true Lord of the Flies to be instantly fond of the guy and Stratos is one of his favorites in the pantheon.
  • Most dissapointed by the lack of fly deities in the House of Insects. He really doesn't like the Radiance, partly for reminding him of YHVH but also because of the spanner in the works her plagues would cause due to their impact on insect life. And she would welcome subjugating one of Lucifer's top generals to her own cause. He was pleasantly surprised elsewhere to learn the bug fascination of Agitha and the power over bugs by Shino Aburame, however they aren't interested in whatever he might try to sell.
  • Misty has refused to go anywhere near the Beast House ever since Beelzebub's ascension, by virtue of him being a fly the size of a tank with a penchant for electric spells and rapid maggot infestation. Beelzebub stays out of the House of Fire & Heat upon Rangaros' ascension, due to his desire to burn INSECTS!
  • Has an interest in the House of Food, due to his role as a demon of gluttony. Pac-Man would rather be left alone, but Midora, Gluttony and the Deviljho are alright with him showing up. Pennywise is amused by the fear Beelzebub could bring and his demonic nature, but otherwise ignores what Lucifer's faction is doing because he's content being a sadistic Child Eater For the Evulz.
  • A god of filth as much as gluttony, Beelzebub is a good friend of Papa Nurgle. He sides with the forces of chaos, though Nurgle isn't ideologically interested in the fly's cause. Lucifer is trying to get his right hand fly to stop seeing the Chaos God as the fact he represents stagnation and decay makes him diametrically opposed to Lucifer's vision of a dynamic changing world.
  • Welcome in the Diseases sub-house. Obviously not liked in the rest of the House of Health and Diseases, given his power over plagues. Anton Arcane often associates with flies, so he'd like to get Beelzebub's favor. However his interests don't give him any favor from the Lord of the Flies.
  • Despite Makoto, Kotone, and Yu's lack of affiliation to Chaos, he is willing to serve them… under certain circumstances. One of these requirements include assuming they are strong enough to be worthy of summoning him, capable of summoning his human form and various devils for fusions, and submitting to the "devilish" nature of a single individual. Both Makoto and Kotone know of the shady businessman by the name of Tanaka, and Yu knows of a lustful nurse in a part-time job at the Inaba Municipal Hospital, which pleases Beelzebub enough to be called at their will.
    • With Ren, who is more chaotic than the former three, Beelzebub is much more pleased about serving him. Still, he required making a pact with an "devilish" individual, in the Thief's case a paparazzi.
  • Though Beelzebub's traditional appearance is that of a giant fly, he has shown a series of other forms;
    • There's Baal Zebul, a blue humanoid who sometimes becomes even more grotesque as a gigantic, hideous rotting corpse riddled with maggots. This form is how he was first introduced to Dracula, as he believes his opposition to God and connection to Chaos makes him a valuable asset to the GUAC.
    • Then there's Beelzebu, a Fallen Angel like the Goetia(who also fit the "demonized gods" role). Though his goals are already antithetical to the GUAC, Malthael is a figure of fear in this state as he could coaxed him into a full angel against his will by the power of Order. Beelzebu consumes demon souls for power, which will help Malthael bring law and order to the world. In turn Pazuzu fears this form for consuming his soul for power.
    • On one occasion he was a woman in dominatrix gear, and likes watching people try to figure that one out. In this form, she wishes to merge the demon and human world into one, and gives magical powers to men she fancies on a whim, or manipulate Lucifer's kin without his knowledge. The "sexy fly dominatrix" is only a form he shows in the pantheon within the House of Love.
    • Probably his strangest incarnation is a white penguin with fly wings wearing a tuxedo. Nobody gets that one. Absolutely nobody. But his true form is in fact Baal, a high-ranking Caananite deity.
  • Being a big-ass fly, even if he is a demon, Beelzebub comes off a delectable treat for any spider deity. As such, he stays the hell away from the House of Arthropods. He is straight up terrified of Ungoliant. Melkor didn't know how to feel about this; amusement at one of Lucifer's top dogs cowed by a former ally, or rather not wanting to get involved given Ungoliant was the only force of evil he feared and tried to eat him.
  • No one has dared ask him if he has a devil put aside for Freddie Mercury. Or how he responds to Ren, under Space Madness, threatening to lick a fly. That was too weird even for Beelzebub, and he initially thought that Ren Hoek was some sort of malformed mosquito.

  • HerakleKabuterimon is a Mega level Digimon who takes the form of a really, really big golden beetle. Despite the name, it's based on the Atlas beetle rather than the Hercules beetle (note the very different horns). HerakleKabuterimon combines the data of both the Kabuterimon and Kuwagamon lines to compensate for the weaknesses of both; this is evident by how its three horns resemble Kabuterimon's single horn and Kuwagamon's pair of antlers combined. It also wields some of the mightiest lightning attacks in the Digital World and despite its size is an extremely fast flyer.
  • Sig and Ken Ichijouji were just hanging out at the House of Insects, when Mothra Leo all of a sudden started going berserk and destroying everything in its path. Ken and Stingmon did their best to try to stop Mothra, but Stingmon alone was no match for the Greater God. While Sig was lamenting that he couldn't do anything to protect his favorite House, he also thought of all the bug Digimon Ken had showed him and got the idea to ask them for help. Sig used a computer to send an SOS to the Digital World, and his heartfelt pleas reached HerakleKabuterimon, who rushed to provide help. HerakleKabuterimon burst into the scene and held back Mothra long enough for Ken's friends to arrive and decisively defeat the rampaging moth. The Main House rewarded HerakleKabuterimon with godhood over Thunder Beetle at Sig's vehement insistence. Sig himself became the partner to HerakleKabuterimon, as he received the Digivice as soon as the Digimon was made a god.
    • Given HerakleKabuterimon's Child form (which it'll often be in to save energy) is Tentomon, a ladybug, it is especially appropriate for Sig to be its partner, as he's always had a ladybug trailing after him. But Sig is a true bug fanatic, so he really loves all of HerakleKabuterimon's forms.
    • By the way, it was discovered that the reason Mothra Leo went berserk was due to Enter using Millenniumon's Dark Spores to corrupt it. Neither Sig nor HerakleKabuterimon will forgive Enter for this. Mothra Leo, on the other hand, is thankful to the two for their intervention and became one of HerakleKabuterimon's first friends in the Pantheon.
  • Although it looks creepy on account of its eyelessness and its gaping maws, HerakleKabuterimon is of the Vaccine attribute, which gives it a disposition to fight for justice and protect the weak. That's why it didn't hesitate to come and help out against Mothra when asked. It's also generally friendly and polite to anyone who isn't an enemy, and it often laments how its looks and size scare other deities away. Its will to fight for good also means it won't disappoint the White Hats should they ever call upon it to help fight the villains who use the digital world as their main platform and assorted digital hazards. Sig is less happy at this new responsibility, but he'll help his partner however he can.
  • Some deities think HerakleKabuterimon looks just like the Xenomorphs, alien creatures who're also eyeless and have a mean set of jaws, which adds to HerakleKabuterimon's creepy factor as Xenomorphs are very aggressive and... messy when they deal with their victims. This comparison makes HerakleKabuterimon pretty sad, but it's declared war on them to show those deities just how different it is from the aliens. Turns out HerakleKabuterimon is quite the bane to Xenomorphs, who can't really handle it even with all their natural weapons.
  • Nancy Archer was one of the deities that was indeed scared of HerakleKabuterimon at first, which is ironic because with her size she could probably hold her own against it. Her fear of him had more to do with his lightning element than anything else though, due to how she died from electrocution. However her fear ebbed away thanks to its well-mannered ways and assurances that it'd never do anything to hurt her and only wanted a fellow big being to talk to on the same level. Now Nancy thinks of HerakleKabuterimon as a true gentlemon.
  • HerakleKabuterimon unfortunately didn't have the same luck with Misty, who remains steadfast in her fear of insects even with someone like HerakleKabuterimon, who's more articulate and human-like (in terms of personality) than most of its housemates.
  • Its personality and its deed of saving Mothra Leo from corruption made it popular with its housemates in the House of Insects. Even less moral ones like Beelzebub and Swarm have loads of respect for its power and won't engage it in combat lightly. Sometimes when HerakleKabuterimon is resting at the House of Insects, the smaller deities can be seen crawling or resting themselves on it.
  • Of all the insects in the Pantheon, it's perhaps only logical that it gets along particularly well with other Kabuto and Kuwaga beetles such as Heracross, Pinsir, Herculious Anchus and Kuwagust Anchus. The former two were initally put off by the Mega-Level Digimon due to it reminding them of Vikavolt, a Bug/Electric type the pair are opposed to. But after an incident where they teamed up to drive off Team Rocket (Jessie, James and Meowth), the Pokemon became more friendly to the digital thunder beetle. That was also the basis for a solid friendship with their human partners, Souji and Arata, who think it's fascinating that HerakleKabuterimon combines the attributes of the beetles they represent.
  • Wanted to make friends with Seltas and Seltas Queen owing to their similar beetle species. Unfortunately HerakleKabuterimon discovered that monsters from the Monster Hunter universe aren't really up for socializing. The Seltas saw HerakleKabuterimon primarily as competition and they also fear its lightning powers, due to being weak to that element (which is rather ironic). As a result, the two Seltas are hostile to HerakleKabuterimon, who's sorry for that and stays out of their vicinity to avoid unnecessary conflict in response.
  • One beetle it's really on bad terms with is the king of the nerubians, Anub'arak (even though nerubians are spiders, their kings are closer to beetles for some reason). Anub'arak's title of Traitor King and loyalty to someone as evil as Arthas really sets HerakleKabuterimon's jaws on edge.
  • Has a good relationship with Gunvolt given they share the same electrical powers and are firmly on the side of good. And although GV's appearance isn't exactly the stuff of nightmares, Adepts do have that reputation since many did help devastate the world with their powers. And terrorist groups like Eden doesn't exactly mend that infamy either. In particular, Teseo from Zonda and the Seven is someone HerakleKabuterimon watches out for, given the internet troll has already established himself as a nemesis for several Digidestined. HerakleKabuterimon and GV agree to fight together whenever Teseo decides to raise hell in the digital world.
  • HerakleKabuterimon's body shines like glittering gold and is very hardy, leading to certain deities trying to hunt it be it because they think its body parts would fetch a high price. Such is the motivation of the Monster Hunters. HerakleKabuterimon usually just flies away when it sees members of that organization, though if they were ever able to prevent its escape, the beetle would probably be compelled to fight for its life. Some more delusional deities think HerakleKabuterimon is literally made of gold; this is the case with Fafnir, who's obsessed with said metal. Unlike the Monster Hunters, HerakleKabuterimon sees no need to hold back against the evil dragon.
  • Also present in the House of Electricity.

How he's typically portrayed.

Khepri portrayed in Smite.
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A scarab moving an orange ball
  • Theme Song: His Smite theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Scarab God Of The Sun, Light Is Good, Embodies The Dawn, Depicted With Its Animal For Its Head (most of the time), Gentle Giant
  • Domains: Scarabs, The Sun, The Dawn
  • Interests: Settra
  • Allies: Ra, other solar deities (Helios, Amaterasu), Shino Aburame, Mothra, Mothra Leo, Volcarona, HerakleKabuterimon, Heracross and Pinsir, Eru Illuvatar, The Entity, Rosalina, The Lumas, Aurelion Sol, Solrock, Robert Capa
  • On speaking terms with: Black Arachnia
  • Enemies: Apophis and the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, Nurgle, Ragnaros the Firelord, Anub'arak, Ungoliant, Chernabog, Nightmare Moon, The Radiance, Beelzebub, YHVH, Darth Plagueis, The C'tan, Pinbacker, Nagash
  • Opposed by: Misty
  • Scarabs. Be it their strength, their busy movement of dung balls, their colors, a number of cultures saw something magical about them. In Ancient Egypt, the rolling of that ball of dung and how it fed their offspring was seen as alike to the movement of the sun. As such, Khepri, a scarab god, served to represent the rising or morning sun. He is seen as an aspect or subordinate to Ra, depending on who you ask.
  • Khepri doesn't have any cult, and is instead more of a servant to Ra. The Egyptian Top God was glad to see that Khepri had ascended, introducing him to other solar deities. He's seen getting along with both Helios and Amaterasu, though admits Helios can be a dick sometimes. He was intrigued by both Solrock and the Lumas, what with being a meteorite modeled after the sun and the Lumas being living stars. The Dawn Bringer thinks the latter are totally adorable. Rather friendly with Rosalina, due to her role as a goddess of the stars and being a caretaker of the Lumas.
  • Tends to take the appearance of a man with a full scarab for a head. However he is more often seen as a giant scarab due to The Battleground of the Gods bringing him to people's attention. He's said to resemble Anub'arak in this form by some, however Khepri doesn't like him all that much for his villainy and ice powers.
    • Misty had a hard time deciding which form creeped her out less, but picked the full scarab because of the uncanniness of a human with a scarab for a head.
  • Due to his close association with Ra, Khepri is active in opposing the GUAD and especially Apophis. He is also a bane for malevolent darkness gods, mainly Chernabog and Nightmare Moon. The latter is on Khepri's end, as an eternal night would among other things prevent a dawn and put Khepri out of the job. The former is on Chernabog's end because he is forced to retreat with the coming sun, which Khepri personifies.
  • Khepri is also an enemy of Ungoliant, the C'Tan and Pinbacker. Ungoliant and the C'Tan took note of the brilliant light that was the sun he was moving around and wish to devour it, and for obvious reasons the scarab god can't have that happen. Pinbacker is convinced that Khepri is one of Satan's demons trying to prevent God's supposed holy mission to shut down the sun and bring the end times, rambling that he is motivated by fearing the Day of Judgement and Lake of Fire. Khepri called him delusional and was happy to see someone sane like Robert Capa was pursuing him, not to mention Robert ended up saving his version of the sun.
  • Generally, Khepri is chill with other beetles in his house. Of course that's because they tend to be generally benevolent. When it comes to general insects and other bugs, he is rather fond of Volcarona as she is able to act as a substitute sun at times when things like volcanic ash block it. Also, while generally good-aligned Khepri isn't too concerned with Black Arachnia. Despite her evil alignment, she is deeply concerned with her swarm of offspring, which reminds the scarab of the expansive family that scarabs can have.
  • Hates the Radiance for her oppressive actions towards bug-kind, and her malevolent divinity. Being light-themed is just insulting for Khepri. She hopes to dominate him as part of a larger take-over scheme, and Khepri is having none of that. He doesn't care much for Beelzebub, who relating to his fly nature was intrigued by the connection between the dung ball and movement of the sun.
  • Though an enemy to the Lord of the Flies, he's ambivalent to Lucifer since Beelzebub has a life outside of him and Lucifer isn't involved in their feud. However they do share an enemy in YHVH, though that's because YHVH is an enemy of just about every religious pantheon. Unrelated is the fact that like just about every insect Khepri is angered by Ragnaros' desire to burn INSECTS!
  • Associated with creation and renewal, due to how scarabs emerge fully grown from the dung ball their parent moves around. This connection with creation is why Khepri is interested in the Life Entity and Eru Illuvatar, alongside their light. Being more and a lot more powerful than the scarab god is why he considers himself more of a student to them than a peer. Darth Plagueis was intrigued in this renewal as it might help his immortality experiments, and is willing to experiment on Khepri to achieve his goals.
  • Gets annoyed whenever people make Toilet Humor at his expense, due to how scarabs use dung. Nurgle was grotesquely intrigued by it, what with being the Great Unclean One and how Khepri is connected with renewal. Settra treated him with more respect, due to being heavily associated with scarabs himself; when he dies his body dissolves into scarabs that retreat to his old tomb so he can be resurrection. Khepri was intrigued by the Tomb Kings because of how similar they are to Ancient Egyptians, and like Settra loathes Nagash for his omnicidal ambitions and unremitting depravity.

    Queen Sectonia 
Queen Sectonia, Goddess of Insect Queens (Soul of Sectonia)

  • Portfolio: Evil Insect Queens, Showing the Evil of Beauty and Light, Fighting Ruler, Magic and Melee Fighter, Dual Wielding Wands and Rapiers, Not Giving Up, Was Once A Good Queen Until She Got Corrupted And Driven To Madness
  • Domains: Rulers, Insects, Beauty
  • Followers: Queen Diva
  • Allies: Zero, Vega, The Evil Queen, Kuja, Trakeena
  • Rivals: Q-Bee
  • Enemies: Kirby, King Dedede, Sho Minamimoto, Nicolas Cage, Crow, Banjo and Kazooie
  • A wasp-like queen who leads an army of insect-like creatures called Sectras and who were tyrannizing the citizens of Floralia. Ascended into the Pantheon after fusing herself with the Dreamstalk which was sent to help Kirby to take her down, almost destroying Dreamland, almost killing Kirby if it wasn't for King Dedede and her, now good, servant Taranza and only going down after being defeated by Kirby five times.
  • She, Vega, The Evil Queen and Kuja have formed a group known as "The Rule of Beauty". Where they would argue who of them is the prettiest of all, they are willing to ally together to kill anyone who thinks they are better than them.
    • At one point, Sho Minamimoto once appeared before their group, shouting into a bullhorn that he has more beauty than all of them, using his unique standards of beauty. This led to a fight between the group and Minamimoto, but it was cut short when Minamimoto decided he had better things to do. But now he's on the Rule of Beauty's blacklist.
  • Refuses to be with anyone who she considers ugly. Queen Slug-for-a-Butt tried to be one of her followers, but just hearing her full name caused Sectoria to zap her with lightning and drove her away.
  • Those who know better know that she wasn't always like this. In the past, she was a kind ruler, but her obsession with beauty eventually corrupted her to turn evil. Further research into her past suggests that the Dimension Mirror and Dark Meta Knight were the things that ultimately caused her corruption.
  • Is unknown if her position makes her the ruler of the Insect sub-house of House of Beast.
  • Is rather wary of the Evil Queen due to her plan to usurp Maleficent as the top Disney Villain, fearing that she would become The Starscream. She is looking for a potential member to replace her if needed.
  • Was more amused than anything else of the news that Q-Bee managed to ascend. Though this lead to an eternal rivalry between Sectas and Soul Bees. Sectas are winning so far.
    • However, the tide seemingly turned once Crow found out about Sectonia, making a snide comment about how she looks like Princess Apodia, another fellow bee of royalty if she was uglier with an outfit too flashy for his taste. She didn't take too kindly to it, and has Crow up on her hit-list since, with it growing even bigger now that Crow decided to side with the kinder bee queen, Q-Bee.

Lesser Gods

    Atom Ant 
Atom Ant, God of Strong Ants
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Atom_Ant_2022.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The letter A superimposed on some weights
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Pint-Sized Powerhouse, Flying Brick, Animal Superhero, Four-Legged Insect, A Name that Sounds like “Adamant”
  • Domains: Ants, Strength, Heroism
  • Allies: Hank Pym, Superman, Flik & Z, Sig, Agitha, Shino Aburame
  • Enemies: Dr. Eggman, Dr. Wily, Queen Sectonia, Terraformars, Megaguirus, The Radiance
  • Opposes: corrupt law enforcers
  • Keeping an Eye on: Them!
  • Crime is running rampant in a city and despite the police trying to make an effort to stop it, they are ultimately powerless to do anything to these criminals. In order to put these criminals behind bars, they turn to Atom Ant, an ant with the ability to fly and possess strength far stronger than the average human (and ant for that matter). With Atom’s help, plans such as a mad scientist’s faulty inventions and a dastardly flea with strength close to that of Atom’s have been thwarted. If he isn’t being summoned for help, he’ll be at his home, just relaxing and lifting weights (which are apparently needed for him to maintain his strength).
  • Another crime wave struck the Pantheon, many of the more competent officers were hung up on the crimes that they specialized in, and a lot of powerful superheroes that could handle most of the other crimes the rest of law enforcement was left to handle were unavailable. A distress signal was sent out in the hopes that somebody would pick up and help stop the criminals that were still out there. It took a few minutes, but they were able to get ahold of a superhero that offered to round up any remaining criminals that were causing chaos. They had a hard time believing that an ant would be able to do it all, but they placed their faith in Atom after being demonstrated his strength via catching a criminal that underestimated Atom. After a while, the crime wave came to an end and Atom settled down in the Pantheon, ready to spring into action whenever necessary.
  • Hank Pym learned about the superpowered ant that contributed to stopping the aforementioned crime wave and was curious to learn more about Atom. A meeting between Hank and Atom was arranged by the former and the latter was eager to meet up with a superhero that understands ants really well. Atom arrived at Hank’s place, the latter having shrunken himself to about Atom’s size to have their talk. Atom then noticed a multitude of ants nearby, looking very different compared to himself, with Hank stating that he is able to communicate with ants like those and have helped him quite a bit. Atom was eager to work with Hank, offering to help him out whenever Hank is having trouble with certain criminals.
    • It was through his meetings with Hank that Atom learned about a group of giants ants known only as Them!. These giant ants have threatened the Pantheon from time to time and Hank has made a number of attempts to control some of their numbers so that they can be used for heroic endeavors, but such a task has proven easier said than done. Atom has offered to oversee Hank’s efforts in controlling Them! and making sure that they don’t cause extensive damage to the Pantheon.
  • One of Atom’s adventures involved Superguy, or more accurately, the actor playing the latter character and in more ways than one, Superguy can be considered similar to Superman in terms of build and abilities. Atom found out about Superman via watching a bit of TV in his downtime and quickly admired the Man of Steel’s adherence to justice and protecting the weak. It helps that unlike “Superguy”, Superman isn’t merely a regular actor (though he does have to use a disguise to blend in with normal people) and that Superman is able to take on threats that are too much for Atom to handle.
  • Flik and Z were both eager to meet with another ant that can help them solve their respective problems. They didn’t really expect a superpowered ant, but they found that benefit Atom had to be more than welcome. Atom himself sometimes invites Flik and Z over to his anthill home on occasion and has offered them his aid for their regular work whenever he isn’t busy tackling dangers that are too much for the two.
  • Sig, Agitha, and Shino Aburame were taking a break from their adventures one day and decided to rest at a nearby tree, which happened to have a mailbox belonging to Atom nearby as well as his anthill. Atom wasn’t there when the three first arrived and only noticed then by the time he was returning to his home. The three were curious to learn more about him and Atom was willing to have a conversation with them. He was happy to learn that they were all fond of bugs, with Shino and Agitha also able to use insects as a means for combat. Sig (who has HerakleKabuterimon as an insect partner that will help him on dangerous missions), Agitha, and Shino are all able to fend for themselves and they’re all willing to help Atom out whenever he’s in trouble.
  • A recurring foe that Atom fought previously was Ferocious Flea, a criminal insect with abilities similar to what Atom has. He rightfully suspected that the Pantheon would have its share of villainous insects, but it became clear that they would dangers that are much more severe than what Atom was used to. Getting caught in a fight with Megaguirus proved to be fairly challenging for Atom given the former’s speed and ability to drain energy, especially since Godzilla was caught up in a different conflict at the time. Atom has also been repulsed by Queen Sectonia’s vain attitude and desire to take over the Pantheon, to say nothing of the Terraformar’s bloodthirsty behavior and large numbers giving Atom more challenges to his crime-fighting spree.
    • Even with all these dangerous insects running around, they were nothing compared to what threat that The Radiance posed not just to Atom, but the rest of the Pantheon. The Radiance has the power to brainwash insects to put them under her command and if she was able to do it to other insects in the Pantheon (including someone powerful such as Mothra Leo, to which Atom was thankful that a butterfly as powerful as Mothra Leo is fighting to protect others), and given the strengths that Atom possessed, she is more than willing to try and brainwash him to do her bidding. For Atom, fighting The Radiance would be too risky for him and he doesn’t want to get brainwashed and forced to turn against his allies.
  • Mad scientists have posed a problem back in Atom’s homeworld, even if some of the problems were the result of faulty inventions instead of genuine malice. The mad scientist problem carried over to the Pantheon when it came to foes that Atom would have to fight against, and unlike what he was used to, much of these scientists such as Dr. Eggman and Dr. Wily had clear-cut plans to conquer the Pantheon and their creations had far less problems compared to Atom’s earlier enemies. This isn’t even getting to the fact that there are other scientists in the Pantheon that are much more dangerous compared to the aforementioned two.
  • The police officers that Atom helped out ended up being very incompetent and insufficiently supplied to handle the jobs that Atom would end up resolving. Most of the law enforcement officials in the Pantheon were more than capable of handling a lot of the criminal activities that befall the Pantheon, with Atom being summoned when things end up being too much to handle. While Atom is cordial with most of the police officers in the Pantheon and respects them for doing a good job with their work, he was dismayed to learn that there were some corrupt law enforcers running around abusing their positions to get what they want. Atom finds those types of individuals to be unworthy of handing out justice and wants nothing more than to see them behind bars.

  • A pair of Mutos Reploids based on a hercules beetle and stag beetle respectively, they are respectful members of Harpuia's personal army. The two are considered to be brothers, and get along as such, due to being built with the same technology. Unfortunately, Neo Arcadia being what it was a the time, they were deployed as enemies to Zero and the Resistance he fought for. Herculious would attempt to obstruct Zero's path to Copy X in both the official shrine and core headquarters of Neo Arcadia, only to be defeated both times, while Kuwagust, partly motivated by revenge for his brother's downfall, would later be sent to commandeer an armed airship on course for the Resistance base, attacking Zero as well and also falling to the crimson reploid.
  • Resurrected within the Pantheon as followers to their former commander before being ascended with their own temple, the two of them are still loyal to Harpuia and his fellow Four Guardians, and partly to Copy X. However, neither of them have any allegiance to Dr. Weil, a fact which they are both thankful for. They were destroyed fighting Zero together in the tower sanctum Yggdrasil after being brainwashed by Elpizo, which all took place before Weil's return.
  • On that note, do not bring up how they technically died by ramming into each other. They thought it was worth the shot to defeat Zero.
  • They were probably not brought back to life by Mechanikles, though he does admire the handiwork of the two.
  • Have an on-and-off relation with the Kamen Riders. While their rather Lawful Neutral approach might turn them away from the more heroic Riders, the two brothers are trying to get better under Harpuia's guidance.
  • The two are oddities in House of Insects as neither of them are organic bugs. Fortunately that's to their advantage, as both are able to avoid the weakness to fire what most of the inhabitants share. Ice on the other hand...
  • Megatron seem to have mistaken the two for his Insecticons. They don't like the comparison.
  • With the advent of Liberion Arcadia and the Herald seats in Harpuia's temple being opened up to two of their comrades, the Anchus brothers are patiently waiting for their commander to bring them onto the team. Knowing him, they believe he may be biding his time for the perfect opportunity to have them aid in a specific mission.

    Megaguirus 
Megaguirus, Goddess of Monstrous Dragonflies (Megagilas, Megagirasu)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_godzilla_vs_megaguirus___megaguirus_looks_at_godzilla.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A silhouette of herself
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Glass Cannon, Big Creepy-Crawlies, Razor Wings, Fragile Speedster
  • Domains: Dragonflies, Agility
  • High Priestess: Yanmega
  • Rivals: Queen Sectonia, Them!
  • Enemies: Godzilla, Rodan, Spyro, Sparx, The Monster Hunters, Hunter J
  • Opposes: Agitha, Sig, Shino Aburame
  • Megaguirus is the queen of the Meganulons, a species of ancient giant dragonflies. An egg laid by one of the Meganulons that was discovered in modern-day Japan hatched into multiple larvae, later growing into a larger adult, and eventually into the queen of Meganulons. Megaguirus is very agile and can drain the life energy of her opponents along with using any energy attack that the foe may have, but it doesn't take too much effort to defeat her once a solid hit connects and fire can make very quick work of her.
  • An egg was found somewhere in the House of Nature one day, its origins apparently unknown. Someone took the egg for themselves, but they had no idea where they should throw it away, so they simply decided to toss it into the sewers, not knowing what would happen later. A few days later, a swarm of dragonflies arrived in the Pantheon, siphoning off different energy sources and transferring it over to a gestating member of their kind. Not long afterwards, that gestating member was unleashed, identified as Megaguirus, and she began to wreak havoc around the Pantheon, forcing its denizens to assemble a team in order to stop it. It took a while to land some direct hits and once she was weakened, the team unleashed a lot of fire-based weapons to finish off the queen. While Megaguirus' threat has subsided for the time being, it wouldn't be the last time the Pantheon would have to fight her, especially if Godzilla gets involved.
  • Having another giant murderous insect to deal with already made the Pantheon's slightly recurring insect problem even worse. Megaguirus' speed combined with her ability to effective use her Meganulon troops and suck out energy sources to use for her own have placed her decently high on that list. Given that the giant ants known as Them! are already an issue on their own and that them getting different mutations generally makes them worse, it's a troubling thought as to whether or not Megaguirus can gain similar power-ups as such. The idea of Megaguirus and the Meganulon fighting against Them! is already a possibility that many are trying to avoid, even if the animosity between both races of insects are already there.
  • While the Meganulons are creatures that shouldn't be taken too lightly, they happen to be a snack of sorts for Rodan. Some of the Meganulons that were trying to get energy sources one day were unlucky to cross paths with Rodan and got eaten by him. Megaguirus was nearby and after seeing what is happening to her soldiers, she became enraged (moreso than before given her perpetually scary face) and attacked Rodan and what followed was a fight between a dragonfly and a pterodactyl that caused a lot of collateral damage. Rodan got a bit of help in driving out Megaguirus, who has since developed a strong hatred towards him and wouldn't hesitate to retaliate against him once more.
  • Sparx received a tip that there was another dragonfly in the Pantheon waiting for him. He was more than eager to meet another of his kind, though Spyro decided to tag-along with him in case something went horribly wrong. Some time during that walk, Sparx got separated from Spyro, prompting the latter to call out his name to see where he was at. Spyro ended up hearing a loud scream, followed by witnessing a very scared Sparx fleeing from Megaguirus. Spyro ended up in a brief fight against her and despite the obvious size difference, he was able to stop Megagurius from killing him and Sparx. Sparx was more than disappointed that the dragonfly he encountered had no intention of being useful to them, with Spyro agreeing to help stop any additional rampages that Megaguirus may cause.
  • A handful of deities have taken to hunting down Megaguirus and her Meganulon troops, hoping to get a decent reward out of them. The Monster Hunters are among those who have taken part of various quests to hunt down Megaguirus, with some of the hunters comparing Megaguirus to a handful of insect-like monsters that the team has encountered in the past. Hunter J had the same reaction to Megaguirus as that of other unusual creatures: an interesting creature that can be captured for money. Hunter J has already set up some plans to get the Meganulons away from her main target so that she can put more effort into trapping Megaguirus.
  • Plenty of deities thought that Queen Sectonia would take an interest in the Meganulons and Megaguirus given how the latter serves as a ruthless insect queen to her subordinates. While Sectonia is indeed aware of Megaguirus, the assumption that the two would at least work together was disproven rather swiftly. Sectonia took one look at Megaguirus and decried it as hideous, prompting Megaguirus to not only attack Sectonia, but resulted in a skirmish between their respectives armies. Once the fight ended, Sectonia made it clear that she'll eliminate Megaguirus and the rest of the Meganulons from her sight, seeing them as an obstacle towards her goals of conquest.
  • One attempt to try and lessen Megaguirus' threat was to send Agitha, Sig, and Shino Aburame to her hideout. Even though some had questioned the task given that a similar attempt to approach Them! with these insect-lovers had failed, others were confident that this attempt wouldn't be nearly as disastrous despite the kaiju's capabilities. The trio's journey to find Megaguirus and reach out to her didn't start off terribly, they got attacked by some Meganulons and some of those insects were already helping give Megaguirus more energy. By the time the team almost reached her hideout, Megaguirus had already sighted them and began attacking them. The team members got injured defending themselves against the creature, prompting a retreat and the outcome being another failed mission to calm down an angry giant insect.
  • What makes her and her brood a significant-enough concern is how they're able to siphon off energy sources as a means to power themselves up. Being able to absorb Godzilla's energy was already bad enough on its own and since the Pantheon is home to a lot of different energy sources (some potentially even more dangerous than that of Godzilla's), many have set up measures to prevent Megaguirus and the Meganulons from absorbing them. The sheer number of Meganulons have made implementing these defenses easier said than done, though.
    • One source of energy that other deities are worried about comes from The Guardians, who are sometimes called upon to fend of Megaguirus' attacks. The Guardians' light-based abilities are unique in that they allow them to defeat foes bigger and stronger than they are. Since Megaguirus has been exposed to this particular source as a result, many are worried about what would happen if she and her Meganulons not only get ahold of Arc, Solar, and Void powers, but even The Guardians' Resurrective Immortality, which could result in a Meganulon swarm that won't go away.
  • Even though she doesn't have much in the way of allies outside of her Meganulons, there have been a few villainous deities that have tried to get on good terms with her. Among them is the GUAD and even if Megaguirus isn't what one would call a world-destroyer compared to a lot of the GUAD's other allies, the group does see potential, especially regarding her abilities to siphon off energy.
  • Although not explicitly classified as a dragon, some have noticed that this dragonfly's appearance has some elements of a dragon, especially when it comes to her size. In a way, she can be considered a dragon-fly. That said, it's not recommended to say it directly to her face unless one wants to get stabbed by a gargantuan bug and drained of their energy (or get assaulted by a bunch of Meganulons).

    The Terraformars 
The Terraformars, Unholy Collective of Creepy Cockroaches (Johj)

  • Earth has been suffering from overpopulation and to solve that problem, plans have been set in motion to terraform Mars and colonize it. A set of genetically engineered cockroaches were made to try and make the planet habitable for humans, but that would lead to something far more dangerous and unexpected for a crew capable of using abilities based on animals sent to scour the planet. Known as Terraformars, these cockroaches would prove to be just one of many problems a later team sent to Mars would encounter. Besides being powerful in their own right, they are able to understand each other via a strange language, possess intelligence on par with a human, and can even copy the animal-based abilities that the crew sent to eliminate them have.
  • Yet another war has broken out in the Pantheon, with soldiers from the GUAG and the GUAE engaged in yet another battle against each other. This skirmish would end up getting a lot bloodier when what appeared to be a swarm of insects showed up in the skies as reported by some GUAG soldiers. A few members of that swarms landed in the middle of the battlefield, and some members from GUAG and GUAE were surprised to see humanoid cockroaches show up. Not too long afterwards, the cockroaches began to brutally murder some of the GUAG's soldiers, prompting some to fight back and while some of the GUAE's forces opted to retreat, a few of their soldiers was willing to help out in warding off the humanoid cockroaches before the number of casualties escalated. While some of the Terraformars got destroyed, whatever was left of the swarm retreated off to a separate section of the Pantheon, prompting many other deities to prepare plans in case the cockroaches decide to attack again.
    • Before things could truly settle down for the time being, some members of that Terraformar swarm broke off and headed in another direction to a place where a number of deities dedicated to preserving nature were at. This ended up taking the preservers by surprise and required the intervention of some stronger deities to get rid of the roaches that were present there. Some also noticed the swarm that these roaches were at headed somewhere, but they were unable to track them down.
  • With how aggressive the Terraformars are as a whole combined with their strength, the GUAG has considered them to be a potent threat to watch out for, especially since they could show up without warning. Some deities have been given warnings if a group of Terraformars were to attack and to avoid them if said deities don't have the combat skills necessary to fight back. The warning also extended to bug-lovers such as Sig and Agitha, both of whom were surprised to learn about the Terraformars and their origins. Given how they are knowledgeable about different bugs, they sometimes tell the GUAG about what kind of abilities some Terraformars have so that the group can be better prepared against those cockroaches.
  • The Terraformars are able to communicate with each other via a very strange language that's noted to simply consist of "Johj" (or something that sounds like that) of varying inflections. It's hard to understand specifically what they're saying beyond that word (and by extension, what their goal is beyond just killing humans) and attempts to try and work on a specialized translator to understand the Terraformars' speech has been slow.
  • Misty is someone noted for her fear of bugs big and small. The mere fact that there are humanoid cockroaches with human-like intelligence willing to kill humans indiscriminately made her skin crawl a bit. While she does have some strong Pokemon to defend herself from a small number of these Terraformars, she prefers to avoid these cockroaches as much as possible, though it hasn't prevent some from seeking her at just to see her scared and defenseless.
  • Both Sailor Mars and Martian Manhunter weren't thrilled to hear about another hostile lifeform from Mars attack the Pantheon. It was especially troubling given that the Terraformars are very smart and have proven that can give Earth trouble in addition to putting up a strong fight against people sent to Mars. The two often get involved whenever another Terraformar infestation occurs and whenever trouble occurs in Mars and the Terraformars are involved, the two are willing to help out and stop the cockroaches from making things worse.
    • On the other hand, Marvin the Martian saw the Terraformars to be unusual creatures and given how they are dangerous threats both on Mars and on Earth, he considered for a bit trying to recruit them in his quest to destroy Earth. Although it worked for a little bit, they ended up getting unruly and didn't listen to some of Marvin's commands. It culminated in some of the roaches rebelling against Marvin, causing the Martian to go back on his plans to use them to destroy Earth and instead rely on what he normally has. It didn't help that Duck Dodgers was given an assignment to track down some Terraformars one time and came across them just as their rebellion against Marvin was taking place.
  • Trakeena saw the Terraformars' strength as something of use to her goals of destruction and made an attempt to try and get them on her side. The initial encounter went a lot worse than she thought thanks to her having the appearance of a human with insectoid traits, making the Terraformars think she wasn't much different from someone who used animal-based powers to fight them. Mesogog had to intervene and take Trakeena away from the cockroaches before she turned into a bloody beat-up mess. She is still bitter over what happened, especially since creatures like the Terraformars would be enough to give the teams of Power Rangers (and Sentai teams by extension) plenty of trouble. Even if she is able to get a swarm of them to attack the Power Rangers and Sentai teams (and have done a good job at giving these heroes enough trouble to force them to use their strongest moves), the roaches still prefer to attack on their own terms and have even fought against Trakeena again a few times.
  • Queen Sectonia, hoping to find more insects to work with her, was a bit curious about the Terraformars and the power that they had. The meeting didn't go over that well, with Sectonia quickly deriding the cockroaches as ugly and attempting to attack them. Some of the stronger Terraformars retaliated and a nasty fight resulted between both parties. Sectonia was able to fend them off, but it's possible that a later rematch might bring her face-to-face with a Terraformar with abilities on par with her own.
  • A group of Terraformars was terrorizing a group of innocents with one of those humans being murdered in the midst of all this. A diving kick came from above and what appeared to be two humanoid grasshoppers appeared to fight off the Terraformars. Although Kamen Riders 1 and 2 aren't humanoid grasshoppers and are simply superheroes themed after such, the pair still drove off the Terraformars, swearing that regardless that if they resemble creations from SHOCKER or not, no innocent human deserves a brutal end and that they will keep fighting against those roaches if they strike again.
    • Speaking of SHOCKER, the organization has taken notes of the roaches' behavior and abilities to determine how useful it will be in their plans. Leading the research is Ryoma Sengoku, who finds it interesting that creatures like them are able to possess human-like intelligence and have differing abilities amongst their kind. While trying to get the roaches to work for SHOCKER is not going to happen any time soon, the organization has taken their notes and applied to some of their plans and see if they can create monsters with attributes similar to that of the Terraformars.
  • The Toa Nuva are more than willing to help out in the fight against the Terraformars, seeing the roaches as not that different from the Bohrok Swarm that threatened to destroy everything back in their homeworld. The Toa Nuva find the Terraformars to be just as troubling as the Bohrok for both similar and different reasons.
  • Pheromosa ended up getting itself involved in an attack by the Terraformars at one point and the latter group ended up being very confused by her at first. While Pheromosa can be described as a cockroach-like Pokemon, it looks a lot more distinct and beautiful than that of the traditionally creepy and off-putting Terraformars. The Terraformars' killing intent managed to get through and while Pheromosa was able to get rid of a few, the Pokemon ended up in deep trouble until the rest of the Ultra Beasts showed up and took care of additional Terraformars alongside Pheromosa. The Ultra Beasts are highly alien beings, but are nowhere near as horrifying as the Terraformars are and both of these particular creatures have since found themselves in subsequent violent rematches. While the Ultra Beasts all don't think of the Terraformars highly, Pheromosa in particular has a lot of contempt for these cockroaches.
  • AM took notice of the roaches' unrelenting hatred of humans and saw them as potentially useful in trying to torment his victims further. Of course, AM isn't really going to go through the trouble of trying to get the Terraformars close to him and they don't care too much about him overall, but any kind of creature that will give humans more misery than before (especially those who are stuck in AM's unending psychological torture chambers and have to deal with many of their worst fears endlessly) is good enough according to AM.
  • While looking for deities who could function as replacements for the Insecticons, Megatron witnessed the Terraformars attack some humans from a distance. Their power combined with how they have no qualms in going after humans made the leader of the Decepticons take note and consider the Terraformars as replacements for the Insecticons for some of Megatron's schemes.
  • The Aparoids once caught wind of the Terraformars and their ability to copy animal-related abilities and decided to infect the cockroaches in an attempt to take over the Pantheon. What happened during the next couple of days was a swarm of Terraformars that looked far more frightening than before, along with slightly increased power to go with what they normally have. Although the threat was taken care of thanks to Star Fox's intervention, it was clear that it wouldn't be the last time that a dangerous force would get involved in making the Terraformars potentially more dangerous than they already are. It didn't help that the cockroaches are fairly smart as they are and are probably interested in looking for additional ways to kill any humans in their way.
  • In an effort to better understand the Terraformars overall, the House of Science has spent some of their time studying their traits and how they evolved in terms of intelligence and power. Some of these roaches are far more intelligent than others of their kind, acting as leader figures of sorts. The House of Science has wondered if this also includes power than other Terraformars. They have also expressed concerns that with the number of other unusual creatures running around the Pantheon, it might be possible for a Terraformar to copy the powers of some of those creatures, making them even more deadly than what a Terraformar can normally do, even with the powers of already existing animals.

  • Cicadas are best known in the world of anime as being those insects that appear during the summer, making a buzzing sound that's truly loud.
  • It was just a normal quiet day in the Pantheon. Well, as normal as it can get. When suddenly a swarm of thousands of Cicadas came down on the Pantheon. In a panic, many of the deities resorted to killing them any way possible. Unfortunately, that just got them reincarnated to the House of Life and Death, repeating the process. After spending hours dealing with the unexpected infestation, they were finally rounded up in one place, being place in a giant glass jar. After debating what to do with them, it was decided to place them in the Houses of Nature (specifically in the Hall of Planetary & Celestial Deities) and Beasts, with their very own seat.
    • Despite every measure to make sure the cicadas stay in one place, many do escape captivity and are found in certain places in the pantheon, their distinctive buzzing indicating their presence.
  • Their trademark sound is an acquired taste for many deities in the pantheon. There are some who think it's very calming, while others think it's annoying. One of those who believe the latter is The Grinch, who can't stand the noise, noise, noise. It got so bad that he created a giant vacuum to suck them up. Unfortunately for him, they escaped and filled up his temple, making the buzzing that much louder.
  • The Cicadas don't have many allies because they are just ordinary bugs. So far, only the Pokémon Shedinja, a cicada himself, and Agitha, the Bug Princess, have any significant interaction with the insects. Many of the normal cicadas can be seen following Shedinja, possibly seeing him as a leader to the rest. For Agitha, she sometimes plays with them. There have been rumors she even developed a spirit insect based on them.
  • Some of the more gullible deities were told that the cicadas could cry. Believing the lie, these individuals tried to make them produce tears. Attempts ranged from feeding them onions to making them watch sad movies.
    • Deities from the Higurashi universe get jumpy when they hear their buzzing. That's because hearing this sound meant bad things were going to happen.
  • To the surprise of many, the cicadas can be turned into kaijins thanks to the influence of the GUAE. One group of kaijins are known as the Zetsuborg. Some didn't think much of the first one since it was the size of a regular cicada. Then it started to evolve, thereby becoming a real threat. Another kaijin is a monster called Guitardo, a humanoid cicada with a magic guitar — which was stolen from the House of Music — that could control gravity. So far, these kaijins have been mostly use against both the Pretty Cures and Toku heroes.
  • In certain parts of the world, the cicada represents both immortality and resurrection. Some believe that some of the ascended ones might have actually been immortal before ascension to this pantheon.
  • As it turns out, even cicadas have dreams they want to achieve, though in the case of most cicadas, that dream is just to be able to fly (even then, it's only the cicadas not naturally capable of flight that dream this).
