    Iwo Jima 
Iwo Jima, The Sacred Island Base
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iwojimamap.jpg
  • An island south of Japan used a major airbase by both American and Japanese forces late in World War II
  • Symbol: A map outlining the three airfields and major strongholds scattered throughout
  • Alignment: True Neutral, as it depends on whoever's currently in control of the island
  • Portfolio: Death Island, MacGuffin Location, Having fortifications built within a Volcano
  • Domains: Airbases, Staging Points, Islands
  • Sacred To: John Basilone, The Flag Raisers
  • One of many islands the United States wrested control from Japan during the island-hopping campaign late in the Pacific War. What makes this one particularly special was its importance to both the American and Japanese war efforts, particularly the Air War over Japan.
  • During the last two years of this time, the Japanese forces based there fortified it heavily, placing numerous gun emplacements, bunkers, and artillery and machine gun nests literally into the cliffs of the island.
  • In addition, the island itself is home to three airfields, two of which were operational at the time of the American landings in February 1945.
  • The site of a major battle between US Marines and Japanese Army soldiers that lasted between 35-40 days, with both sides suffering heavy casualties.
  • Upon its capture by US forces in March 1945, the airfields were immediately fixed and put into operational condition, to be used as a temporary base for bombers targeting Japan, as well as a permanent base for fighters.
  • John Basilone had mixed feelings at first upon seeing the very place where he was killed ascend into the Pantheon. For the most part, he treats the place as a sacred location, in part due to the War Memorial on top of Mt. Suribachi.
    • The same applies for The Flag Raisers as a whole. They even leave behind both of the flags they raised over the island as respect to their fallen comrades.
  • Because it was a Japanese Army base, The IJN Admiral was...less enthusiastic with its ascension, due in part to Interservice Rivalry with them.
  • Makes several appearances in World War II -related media.

    "Kagura Millennium Festival Island" 
"Kagura Millennium Festival Island", Divine Seat of Beach Episodes
  • A large island with most of it's landscape composed of small mountains covered in trees. Only solid location known is a beach resort arena
  • Symbol: The festival grounds
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Beach Episode (and Festival Episode) Location, Mostly Deserted, Place to Send off Grieving Shinobi Spirits, Located in an Alternate Timeline Where Everything Else Is Destroyed.
  • Domains: Beaches, Islands, Festivals, Ghosts, Apocalypse
  • The seat in regards to Beach Episode is hard to really find, as they tend to be one-off things and such, don't have much presence in overall narrative. However, the nameless island where the girls from Hanzo, Hebijo and Gessen Academy as well as Homura's Crimson Squad were send to in order to take part on "Kagura Millennium Festival" is special, as the whole story takes place within the island. As such, it is one of few places where the holy seat would go to.
  • The island is mostly barren, with most noticeable being the beach resort located on one side of the island, with some smaller man-made buildings scattered around by those who might have stayed there. To make the island more interesting, more larger places have been built like a festival ground built onto a hill.
  • Note that originally, the island is located on a different timeline compared to the one where the girls were pulled out of. A timeline where a giant yoma went into a rampage, sinking almost every mass of land into the ocean, with the island being the only thing left.
  • Even though the festival is still over, there are still some lingering shinobi spirits around who still haven't gotten past their deaths. How dangerous they are varies on the spirits, some of them wanting to fight those who they come across, or those who want company before they can move on to the afterlife.
  • Haruka and especially Katsuragi has insisted that the island should hold "Surprise Shinobi Slippery Splash-n-Spray Sports" periodically, but no one outside of them wants that thing to happen again.

    Monster Island 
Monster Island, Seat of Giant Monsters
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/monster_island_ama.jpg
  • A place where monster and dangerous beasts of all sorts roam freely.
  • Symbol: An mountainous island in an ocean with monsters dotted across its surface.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Sacred To: All Kaiju, All Pokémon, Wild Animals (be they mythic, prehistoric or otherwise), Nature Heroes and anyone who loves the natural world.
  • Bane Towards: Polluters, plunderers, those without respect for the natural world. Though the land is full of monstrous mutants, it is overall a symbol of nature overcoming mankind's misuse of the planet.
  • Domains: Travel, Nature, Animals, Dragons, Monsters, Plants, Radiation, Mutation, Evolution
  • Is home to many of the monstrous members of the pantheons and their servants.
  • Many go there for training and hunting. Adventures are lured there for the fabled treasures it holds. The monsters do not take kindly to most of these trespassers.
  • Fluttershy is the one of the few being who can walk on Monster Island without running the risk of being eaten. Some of the residents still scare her a lot.
  • Steve Irwin does guided tours for those who want them, and considers himself the "Park Ranger" for Monster Island.
  • For all monsters, mutants and giant beasts, it's still a very beautiful, pristine environment.
  • Heaven of All Monster Hunters.
  • Is actually a peninsula.

    Pleasure Island 
Pleasure Island, Seat of Disturbingly Mind-Changing Land (Land of Toys, Prankster's Paradise)

    Skull Island 
Skull Island, the Island of Mystery (Kong's Island)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/skullislandmonsterverse.jpg
  • Theme Music: The Island
  • A mysterious island inhabited by many creatures, most of them dangerous
  • Alignment: True Neutral/Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Lost World, Isle of Giant Horrors
  • Domains: Islands, Danger
  • Similar Locations: Isla Nublar, ARK, the island from Lost
  • Sacred to: King Kong
  • Located somewhere across an ocean (different guesses include somewhere off of Indonesia and the Bermuda Triangle), Skull Island is every bit as dangerous as it is mysterious. Those who are trying to even reach the island to begin with will have to contend with a large cloud bank and potentially harsh weather. Upon arriving on the island itself, the scenery (which includes a knoll shaped like a skull) may be impressive, but a whole slew of danger awaits, including dinosaurs, tribes that perform a human sacrifice, and of course, a certain giant gorilla known as Kong.
  • In addition to it being his home, Kong is also considered to be the guardian of that island. While Kong keeps to himself for the most part, if the island is threatened by uninvited guests, Kong will attack the perpetrator(s) in question.
    • Besides the giant gorilla himself, there is plenty of other wildlife to be found on Skull Island such as dinosaurs. Some of the most dangerous creatures that can be encountered are known as "Skullcrawlers" and their voracious appetite spells danger to anyone who meets them, though Kong can fight and defeat those creatures. On very rare occasions, wildlife from the Pantheon can be found on the island, but it's typically the more unusual kinds that are present there.
  • Many explorers, such as Indiana Jones, Lara Croft, Nathan Drake, and the League of Explorers have sought interest in exploring the island in the hopes of finding something good. It is certainly a dangerous place for them to explore, but they are experienced in that kind of field and have made the necessary preparations for this specific expedition.
  • With how geologically unstable the place potentially is, there is a distinct possibility of the place eventually sinking. This has given some more of an incentive to visit the place, regardless of how many casualties could potentially happen as a result of a journey like that.
  • Not only do explorers want to get a good look in seeing what the island has to offer, there are more than a few corrupt deities looking to exploit the island's resources for their own gain. Needless to say, such a thing is not going to end well for anyone involved.
