Intermediate Gods

    Hatsune Hirasaka 
Hatsune Hirasaka, Goddess of Jorogumo (The Spinner in Darkness, Atlach Nacha, The Girl with Red Eyes, Hirasaka-Sama)
  • Intermediate Goddess, Greater Goddess at her full strength and true form.
  • Symbol: A Spider Web coiling around a naked, half-eaten corpse.
  • Theme Song: Going On (All one hundred versions)
  • Alignment: Pure Chaotic, has none, and no longer comprehends human ethics. Does many Chaotic, and Neutral Evil acts, as well as some selfless Chaotic Good acts. On the best of days, would be considered Chaotic Neutral. On the worst, Chaotic Evil.
  • Portfolio: Tends to Target Other Rapists, Surprisingly Polite, Is the "Heroine" of Her Game, Spider Webbing, Prefers Girls Over Men, Who She Usually Eat, Glowing, Crimson Eyes, Better Than Her Arc-Nemesis, Genuinely Loves Kanako, Is Willing To Result to Rape, But Is Capable of Seducing Them With Normal Means, Chose to Become a Monster After Being Gang-Raped, Tortured, And Sacrificed by Her Village In the Muromachi Period
  • Domains: Darkness, Spiders, Cunning, Spider Webs
  • Herald: Miyama Kanako
  • Allies: Skull Face, Gabriel Belmont, Sebastian Michaelis, Ato-ko Shirogane
  • Friendly Enemies: Spider-Man
  • Enemies: Satan, Other rapists, Morrigan and Lilith Aensland, many other demons, Slannesh, Coraline Jones and Chihiro Ogino
  • Ignores: Lucifer
  • Feeds off the flesh of humans, or their sexual energy with humans, very much needing celestial energy to survive. As a Jorogumo, Hastune takes the form of a young schoolgirl (Which is offshot by her blazing red eyes) to blend in better with society. Unlike most of her species, Hatsune is attracted to the same gender, though she's willing to have sex with a male if she must. In actuality, her true form is a huge, rather hideous Giant Spider.
  • While Hatsune seems physically un-intimidating in her human form, don't let that fool you, she's still a killing machine. Possessing super strength and speed, along with the ability to manifest huge-spider like limbs from her back and hands, fighting her unless prepared is a bad idea. That's not even going into her true spider form.
  • Pissing her off is a very very horrible idea, as she will literally tear you apart, and devour you with a grin. Hurt Kanako, and she will add raping your corpse to that list.
  • While Hatsune doesn't care at all for her demonic brethren in the Pantheon, she at least has respect for Sebastian due to his class. While Sebastian doesn't care for her appetite, he readily acknowledges her politeness, loyalty to Kanako, and has made remarks that she would make a tolerable maid.
    • Doesn't get along with Morrigan and Lilith though. Despite the similarities between Succubi and Jorogumo, the duo doesn't like Hatsune's tendency to devour human flesh and how she forces herself upon others.
  • After hearing about her apparent disdain in humans, Satan went to welcome his fellow demonic sister into the Patheon and was greeted to the scene of Hatsune, rather tenderly, making love with her human lover/servant Kanako. Satan flew into a rage, demanding what she was doing by having sex with a human and taking human shape. Hatsune, in turn, dropped her normal politeness and demanded the Fallen Angel to leave, or she would kill him slowly, before devouring his corpse. Satan merely scoffed muttering under his breath about how "monkey lovers" aren't worthy of his attention.
    • Later, Lucifer himself, knowing her power, connection to chaos, and demonic nature offered her a moderately high position in the GUAC. Curiously, Hatsune turned him down, telling him she stands alone. Lucifer, chuckled, casually telling her her view on humanity is rather hypocritical, considering she views her lover, Kanako in very high regard. The two haven't talked since.
  • Despite being invited to join the GUAE, and GUAC, Hatsune chose to align with neither of them, disliking the GUAE for there status of being evil for the sake of it (While Hatsune does evil acts to survive), and thinks the GUAC doesn't embody the true spirit of chaos, which is doing whatever needs to be done for herself to "Keep going on".
  • Doesn't get many visitors, more to do with the fact both heroes and villains keep a safe distance away from her. Heroes, because of her willingness to use depraved tactics, and villains, because more often then not, she preys on them, then the fact that she keeps her nest very... messy, leaving around the cocooned remains of her victims everywhere.
    • Though Skull Face of all people, has been seen visiting her, apparently relating to her backstory, due to the fate of him and his own village. He knows a thing or two about using horrific methods to fight against a greater evil.
  • Has common ground with Gabriel, who sympathizes with the fact she was forced into being a monster just like him, and shares similar views about humanity.
  • Ultimately, the thing that she hates most in the world is herself.
  • To the entire Pantheons shock Hatsune and... Spider-Man, appear to be on friendly terms. When asked by his fellow Superheroes, Peter claimed they hang out on the occasion. Despite this, knowing her rather... unusual eating habits, Spidey will stop her if she goes too far, but has no problem hanging out with her on one of her good days, knowing how lonely the spider-demon is. Hey, web-crawlers need to stick together.

    Koneko Toujou 
Koneko Toujou, Goddess of Nekomata (Hellcat, Shirone, Hypnobutt (call her the latter at your own risk))

    Nyotengu no Miyama 
Nyotengu no Miyama, Goddess of Tengus (Naughty Tengu Princess)

    Sadako Yamamura 
Sadako Yamamura, Goddess of Stringy Haired Ghost Girls
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Either a stone well, or an ordinary looking video cassette.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Stringy Haired Ghost Girls, Haunted Technology, Blinding Bangs, The Faceless, Psychic Powers, Tragic Villains, Sealed Evil in a Can, Unsettling Gender Reveal, Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds, Xanatos Gambits
  • Domains: Ghosts, Water, Darkness, Revenge, Curses
  • Herald: Towel Man
  • High Priest: Samara Morgan
  • Followers: Mitsuko, Natre
  • Allies: Mononobe no Futo
  • Enemies: Hisako, the entire House of Technology.
  • Complicated Relationship: Erma, Pinkie Pie.
  • Sadako was formerly the high priest for Samara, but ascended herself after Kayako Saeki attacked her. It was suggested that Sadako and Samara act as co-goddesses. Inspector Zenigata received two cursed videotapes in the post, which were removed by the SCP Foundation. In the end, Sadako was voted into the position, and Samara demoted to high priestess.
  • A lot of the Pantheon freaked out when it was revealed that Sadako is genetically male. She found odd comfort in Princess Ozma, who had been in a similar position but vice versa, who told her "I know how you feel".
  • Due to Sadako's Divine Parentage, there has been mass speculation who her anonymous, supernatural father is. Aquaman, Davy Jones and most gods with psychic powers have denied it. It is suspected that her father also conceived Samara at some point due to their near identical simularities.
  • Banned from the House of Technology for good reason.
  • Approached Manny Calavera to ask him how to escape her eternal damnation, but all he said was to find a hole to hide in. Sadako then chucked him down her well and haunted him for a week.
  • Horrified when all of her cursed videotapes were recorded over with episodes of The Clangers. Samara offered several of her own until she made new copies.
  • Attempted to invade Teletubbyland but that backfired when she knocked Tinky Winky into a brief coma when attempting to crawl out of his stomach telly.
  • A pretty skilled user of the Xanatos Gambit, telekinetically creating a DNA-copying virus that can either kill victims or impregnate them with clones of her to ensure she survives.
  • Vanellope Von Schweetz and Rainbow Dash tricked Mario, Luigi and Fix It Felix to venture down into Sadako's well to make it more hospitable, but were chased out by Sadako.
  • Sees YouTube as a possible source to spread her curse, only to receive copyright messages from Viacom every time she has tried. Sadako intends on sending a videotape to Viacom's bosses at some point.
  • Secretly likes the House of Theatre due to her past hobbies and would like to restart her acting career if not for her condition.
  • To her surprise, was once approached by (read: tackle hugged into the ground,) a ghost girl whom believed her to be her mother. However, shortly after, she realized her mistake and quickly got off her. Upon learning of the fact that Erma's own mother looks like her, Sadako has eased up on her, and will try to act friendly to her whenever she seems her. Sadako does wish that Erma would stop pulling her back through TVs of those that watched her tape. Her chances of succeeding in her plans have greatly diminished due to how the other ghost girl is willing to step up and personally intervene with her whenever she tries to kill her victims.
  • She has a complex relationship with the Ponies of Equestria, possessing a hatred for horses. However, an encounter with Pinkie Pie changed all that. She discovered the strange peppy pony apparently possessed similar powers, could emerge from TVs, and even had a Superpowered Evil Side nicknamed "Pinkamena", complete with long, stringy hair. While Samara shunned Pinkie (and all other horses), Sadako was drawn to her. Pinkie now makes unannounced visits to her well, often by cannonball.

Lesser Gods

Dunsparce, God of Tsuchinoko (The Land Snake Pokemon, Nokocchi)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: Its tail
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Gender: Male
  • Ability: Serene Grace
  • Moveset: Drill Run, Body Slam, Dragon Rush, Roost
    • Z-Move: Breakneck Blitz
  • Portfolio: Our Monsters Are Weird (specifically the Tsuchinoko), Butt-Monkey, Crutch Character With A Really Good Ability, Non-Elemental With A Buttload Of Varied Moves, Wings Do Nothing, Eyes Always Shut
  • Domains: Youkai, Snakes, Cryptids, Monsters, Oddness, Caves
  • Allies: Ash Ketchum, Rubeus Hagrid, Steve Irwin, Quetzacoatl, Piglet, Karin Maaka
  • Enemies: Team Rocket, The Killer Rabbit, Apophis, Ragior Stonehoof
  • Envies: Salamence
  • Dunsparce is an odd-looking Pokemon, to say the least. The Land Snake Pokemon is based on the Japanese Youkai and cryptid known as the tsuchinko, a fat snake-like creature with a stinger. While it's stats aren't that impressive, it is useful early on and can get Serene Grace, which boosts the likelihood of moves having additional effects. And it can learn a number of moves to exploit this.
  • It's easy to think Dunsparce has a complex about it's odd appearance given it lives in caves and in darkness. This Dunsparce certainly does, and doesn't like people gawking at him. For this reason, he soon found himself getting along with Betty Suarez due to her own body conscious issues and became her partner. They look after each other and compliment each other's appearances.
  • Because of how timid and self-conscious Dunsparce is, he found himself relating to Karin Maaka due to how often she got herself in embarrassing situations. He also found himself relating to Piglet given that Piglet's a Lovable Coward, similar to the Dunsparce in the pantheon.
  • Sometimes tries to pass off as a dragon or bug, only for most there to laugh it off. The Land Snake Pokemon soon found himself jealous of Salamence. Dunsparce can merely float a bit with his wings, while Salamence has glorious red wings and is an effective flyer. And Salamence likes to remind Dunsparce of this. Amusingly the two Pokemon are the same size, being 4 foot 11.
  • Being mostly serpentine, Dunsparce is accepted in the House of Reptiles. He was pretty terrified of Apophis, which is was pretty justified. However Quetzacoatl was a friendly serpent who the Land Snake Pokemon felt comfortable near. Quetzacoatl pitied how the fellow winged serpent could barely fly, and let Dunsparce ride on his back to make him feel better.
  • As mention, Dunsparce prefers darkness and caves. If spotted, it flees by digging underground and travels in tunnels. One of these ended up intersecting the same burrow as the Killer Rabbit, who reacted violently to its territory being disturbed. Dunsparce's next tunnelling ended up with him being underneath Ragior Stonehoof while pulling an earthquake off, which is seriously deadly to any underground Pokemon.
  • Both Rubeus Hagrid and Steve Irwin were fond of Dunsparce despite, or perhaps because of the Pokemon's odd appearance. This really helped out his self-conscious personality. As did meeting Perry the Platypus, given that platypi are rather strange animals and as such make Dunsparce feel more normal.
  • For whatever reason, people like to utter the phrase "Dunsparce Real" whenever they see it around. After hearing of a chubby-snake creature coming into the Pantheon, some Monster Hunters from the New World made a mad dash to catch Dunsparce under the premise that it wouldn't be here long. Others tend to scold these individuals while also looking out for a giant Elder Dragon wreathed in gold.
  • Its tendency to burrow underground in order to flee also had it run into Taikun Zamuza by bumping into it while it was camouflaged as rock. Luckily unlike its previous encounters with the Killer Rabbit and Ragior Stonehoof the Carapaceon let it scamper off. Aside from showing signs to back off, it let the Land Snake Pokemon scamper off with little trouble while it went back to hiding.
  • A fan game posits a possible evolution called Dunseraph, a Dragon/Flying Pokemon. Sometimes it wishes this evolution was part of the official Pokemon universe but it can summon it from time to time, only for it to return back to its home universe.

Weavile, Goddess of Kamaitachi (The Sharp Claw Pokémon, Manyula)

  • Complicated Relationship: Sadako Yamamura, Jessie, James, and Meowth, Mew

  • Opposed by: The House of Food, Foghorn Leghorn, The Sub-Houses of Birds & Rabbits & Rodents, The Chocobos, Murkrow
  • Weavile, the Sharp Claw Pokémon, is a form of Yōkai known as a Kamaitachi; weasel-like spirits who ride in on cold winds and slice through unsuspecting victims with their scythe-like claws. The final evolution of Sneasel, these Pokémon are a rare occurrence throughout Sinnoh, Johto, Kanto, Unova, Kalos, Alola, and Galar, only emerging at night to prey on everything from bird eggs, to Vulpix and Sandshrews. The individual seen in the Pantheon, a female with shortened head feathers, was caught raiding the chicken pens in the House of Food, slicing through several gods before being captured. Team Rocket's Meowth was called in to translate, and it was through him that the reason for her thievery became clear. The Weavile was simply trying to feed her offspring, two Sneasel kits who were just reaching maturity. The Court of the Gods realized the Dark/Ice Type wasn't being malicious, and decided to let Weavile stay, giving her a temple and position in the Pantheon. She instantly took the job, but was a little disappointed by the single condition; not to steal anymore eggs. That part was more difficult than assumed but she's tried to keep that promise.
  • Her temple leads to the Sinnoh region. More specifically, the northern portion of the region, along Routes 216 & 217. It consists of a vast and snowy mountain range, covered with thick forests and home to a variety of Ice, Grass and even Fighting type Pokémon. It's also a great place to ski... provided you don't collide with a Snorunt or Abomasnow.
  • Weavile's entrance caught the eye of several other Yokai-based deities, including one Erma Williams. The little girl was intrigued by the Pokémon's unique appearance and powers, and even brought it and the Sneasel Brothers home for tea parties. After that, they became partners, with Erma occasionally bringing her new companion to show to her extended Yokai family.
    • It has made things awkward when Weavile met the onryō, Sadako Yamamura, mistakenly under the impression she was Erma's mother. The ghost woman quickly corrected the Pokémon but ever since they've kept their distance from each other, mostly due to Dark type attacks being strong against Ghost types.
  • Despite her Kamaitachi heritage, Weavile has had a difficult time befriending the other weasels in the Pantheon, probably because, well... Most of them aren't friendly. The Toon Patrol wants nothing to do with what they consider a "stay at home mom" - which she hates being called - and Kyubey? Well there's a reason she stays away from that gremlin.
  • Due to her Dark and Ice typing, Weavile was quick to attract the attention of the Pantheon's many cryo and necromancers, with some encounters more positive than negative. It was a given that she would get along with most of the Pantheon's Ice and Dark type Pokemon, with Lapras, Cryogonal, Umbreon, and Absol being high on the list. Absol in particular relates with Weavile as both have to deal with the negative stereotypes surrounding Dark Type Pokémon on a regular basis.
    • On the side of ice-wielders, Mei-Ling Zhou and Sub-Zero sympathize with the Sharp Claw Pokémon's need to protect her family and have offered to help her in whatever way they can. As well, Waterbending master Katara and her brother Sokka also have become allies with Weavile, with the former carrying a chunk of NeverMeltIce to boost the weasel's Ice type attacks. Mister Freeze, while a little on the cold side, is on good terms with, and has come to his defence when Batman came knocking on one occasion.
    • In regards to Dark magic wielders, Weavile gets along well enough with the Twilight Princess Midna and Absol's human partner, Riku. Having been corrupted by Xehanort in the past, Riku is all too familiar with people viewing the darkness as simply evil, as light and darkness are both essential to life. Both Midna and Riku vouched for Weavile's ascension and for that, Weavile was thankful for it.
  • She's friends with Ash and Pikachu after hearing they helped another Weavile reclaim his place in a pack. This came as a surprise, as the first time the pair encountered a Weavile of any kind, it was under the ownership of Kidd Summers, a researcher they had assumed was evil. It's lead to some awkward meetings with Mew but, much to her relief, it doesn't hold any grudges.
  • Being a Dark/Ice type, Weavile possesses a plethora of weaknesses, including Fire, Rock, Bug, Fairy, Steel, and especially Fighting. As such, she avoids all Fighting-type Pokémon in the Pantheon like the plague, mostly due to them being able to easily defeat her...
  • Despite her Ice typing, Weavile stays the hell away from the likes of Kaldr, Arthas and the Night King, all of whom desire to plunge the Pantheon into eternal winter. It's gotten to the point where she's allied herself with Jon Snow and the Night's Watch in an attempt to stop the White Walkers and other undead armies.
  • The Alpha of the trio, it is Weavile's duty to protect her Sneasel offspring from villain groups such as Team Rocket, who wish to exploit them for their own evil deeds. Lately, she's noticed that several Rocket grunts have been hijacking Poke Stops around the Pantheon, and several Pokémon have been corrupted. She's teamed up with Ash and Pikachu to put an end to this mayhem.
    • Surprisingly, Weavile was quick to befriend Team Galactic's leader Cyrus, despite his universe-altering ambitions. It may have something to do with him owning a Weavile of his own, and also because of his friend Hareta, who took to training her Sneasel twins to prepare them for the future.
  • During a food-gathering heist, Weavile heard rumours of another red and black figure going around attacking prey with some backup. Assuming this was another pack of Sneasel and Weavile, she decided to investigate and offer an alliance. She was disappointed to find out that was a human named Sora, but understood that he's mainly fighting to keep her pack's prey from being corrupted by members of Team GO Rocket. They agree to perform a team-up should they strike again.
  • Despite her promise to not steal from the House of Food, Weavile will still go after the nests and eggs of other birds, sometimes even dining on rodents and lagomorphs like real world weasels. As such, she's become the subject of scorn from the Pantheon's resident birds, rodents and rabbits. Mrs. Brisby gets plenty of unwanted flashbacks of Dragon, whilst the Chocobos and Foghorn Leghorn keep an eye on her, the latter being reminded of a weasel he knew back in his home world. Interestingly, the Pantheon's local Murkrow gang have grown to become enemies/rivals to Weavile's group, due to their eggs being periodically stolen by her.
  • One time while foraging for food, Weavile came into contact with a gigantic, shark-like amphibian called Zamtrios. A fearsome predator with the ability to forge ice-armour on its body and inflate itself to crush its opponents, it nearly killed the poor Pokémon before she could escape. Ever since, she's kept her distance.
  • Weavile took part in the third Smash tournament, using False Swipe to cut down opponents. Sadly, she wasn't invited to the later tournaments but at the very least, it meant she didn't have to contend with Galeem and Dharkon transforming her into a bodiless spirit.

    Youmu Konpaku 
Youmu Konpaku, Goddess of Hitodama Light (The Half-Ghost Gardener, Myon, Ghost 2B)
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her two swords, Roukanken and Hakurouken and her ghost half
  • Theme Music: Hiroari Shoots a Strange Bird ~ Till When?
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Being Half-Human and Half-Ghost, Young Samurai, Doesn't Think Too Hard, Katanas What Cleave Spirits, Super Speed, Undying Loyalty, Relatively Badass Normal
  • Domains: Swords, Hybrids, Ghosts, Gardeners
  • Allies: Yuyuko Saigyouji (her mistress), Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame, Casper, Gengar, 2B
  • Rivals: Kisuke Uzuki
  • Annoyed by: Champions of Runeterra
  • Conflicting Opinion: Sakuya Izayoi (her relationship with her debatable due to the large and inconsistent fanon)
  • Has been in the Pantheon for quite some time, but simply as her mistress Yuyuko's assistant. One day, however, decided that her loyalty would be rewarded somehow... even if Youmu had no idea that she was going to become an actual goddess.
  • Her ghost-half tends to provoke phasmophobia on others who suffer it. She doesn't intent it in any way, but whenever she gets near them, they tend to get a a chill down their spine. Though she isn't quite immune to it herself. One time, Yayoi Kise, upon meeting her, started telling a ghost story she once heard. Youmu was out faster than Yayoi can remember her friend Nao going.
    • Note that Youmu is afraid of imaginary horrors. Actual monsters? No problem. Stories and costumes of monsters what might not exist? Problem.
  • Small parts of fanon give her a bit of a strange affinity to Sakuya Izayoi, another fellow white-haired girl (Youmu's is arguably more paler however) and stage 5 servant boss who also is a master of bladed-weaponry. Very few but strong parallels have been drawn between the two, but their actual relationship with each other is still ambiguous at best.
    • One most likely thing that ties them together is her either fangirling her via Onee-sama-style, or the fact that both of them are made to be notable JoJo's Bizarre Adventure references; in Youmu's case, many people parallel her with Jean Pierre Polnareff in terms of being white-haired and a knack for swift swordsmanship.
      • Also tends to be someone annoyed in that people have some rather devious pairings of her and Reisen Udongein Inaba in some rather....notable relationships. Youmu states outright she does not roll that way, so it seems.
  • Boasts that the things that can't be cut by her Roukanken, forged by the youkai, are close to none ("close to none" being soccer balls and bad jokes). This did draw the attention of Kisuke, who mistook the "forged by the youkai" part meaning that it is a Demon Blade, and has tried to destroy the blade. However, Youmu seems to be oblivious of Kisuke's intentions and thinks he simply wants to fight her.
  • Really wishes that the Champions of Runeterra would just stop stealing her Roukanken to themselves. One time, she tried to trick one of them taking her other sword, Hakurouken, but quickly stopped herself when she realised that they might accidentally purify a ghost with it. At the very least they should stop calling her "Youmuu" (especially via incorrect romaji).
  • The Ghostbusters actually tried to capture her once, but she managed to run away before anything could happen. Then again, some gods wonder what happens if her ghost half would get captured...
  • Is baffled when people say that she sounds like Madoka, having no idea where they get that from. But it seems to also tie into sounding like another skilled swordswoman by the name of Yuuki Konno.
    • Funny enough, she also may or may not be friends with another ghost by the name of Reimi Sugimoto, and in one other instance, Reimi (along with another individual by the name of Miles "Tails" Prower) has had the same voice as Youmu as well.
      • From there, there are small inside gags amongst some gods in that while Youmu seems to be Tails' parallel, people may be wondering if Sakuya's her Sonic…?
  • Is supposed to be Yuyuko's gardener, but behaves more as her bodyguard/servant. In fact, she was supposed to be Yuyuko's swordsmanship tutor to fill in for her missing father, but the ghost harbored no interest. Ironically, she has since drawn a few other sword-users and those aspiring to learn.

How well does it match the trope?
