Greater Gods

    Hera 
Hera, The Scornful Goddess (Divine Queen, Goddess of Marriage, Queen of the Gods, Juno)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hera_smite.jpg
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: Peacock Feathers
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (Lawful Evil when dealing with Zeus' lovers and children)
  • Portfolio: Badass Goddess, Clingy Wife, Punishing Others Because of Zeus, Goddess of War, Virgin Power, High Goddess, Hair-Trigger Temper, Yandere
  • Domain: Marriage, Wrath, Virginity, Revenge, Lightning
  • Divorced From: Zeus
  • Allies: Diana of Themiscyra/Wonder Woman, Hercules (former enemy; still an enemy in his DC Universe form), Athena, Vulcan, Poseidon
  • Enemies: Kratos, Both Hades, Aphrodite, Nemesis, The Colossi, Aru Akise, Ato-ko Shriogane.
  • Admires: All the ascended Happily Married deities. Even the crazier ones.
  • If there ever was a spiteful Goddess, Hera is that Goddess. Known for retaliating against any woman who catches Zeus' fancy. Once, she forced Leto (Apollo's and Artemis' mother) to never give birth on any place connected to land or sea and suffer eternity in labor. Another time, she tricked Semele to have Zeus reveal his true form to her, and when he did, his thunderbolts destroyed her body. She also killed the children of Lamia and turned her into a monster for even catching Zeus' attention. Of course, you could say these actions are "justifiable" since she couldn't directly harm Zeus.
    • Hera's wrath wasn't just reserved for the objects of Zeus' attraction. She also attacked his illegitimate children since most became more famous than any of the children he sired with her. Most famous was her rivalry with Hercules/Heracles. She first tried to prevent his birth by having Lucina, the Goddess of Birth, prolong Alcmene's birth of the demigod. After seven days and nights of agonizing pain and near death, Alcemene finally gave birth to Hercules after her maid tricked Lucina. After Zeus proclaimed that no harm would ever come to Hercules from the Olympian Gods, Hera decided to harm him in the next best way: by killing Hercules' wife and children. This was done by either her striking Herc with madness and having him kill them or taking a direct approach and killing them with a giant fireball. As Herc had to do his famous Twelve Labors for this. However, they have made peace after Herc ascended to official godhood and he saved Hera and Athena from being raped during the Gigantomachy (the war between the Olympians and Giants).
  • After being killed by Kratos, Hera ascended with a surprising new form. Instead of something resembling any deity, she instead looks like some kind of demon from the underworld. Not only that, but her attire is what people think Aphrodite would wear. Hera does mention the form is temporary until something more appropiate comes along.
  • Once thought as nothing more than a vengeful Goddess, Hera is very much a War Goddess. She even has command over her ex-husband's Lightning Bolts. Also, her new form has power over gravity, fire, ice, earth, and light. The last four actually find her changing her appearance to fit those elements.
  • Once made a bet with Zeus that he couldn't mingle with the mortals without womanizing. She was enraged when she ascended and found out he was doing just that. This prompted her to 'divorce' from him. But despite that, she still goes into a fit of jealous rage on anybody Zeus hits on. She is still fearful of the Top God (which is ironic since he is also afraid of Hera), so the High Goddess set her sights on his lovers. But this time, they are able to fight back.
  • Once she learned that Kratos was also part of the Pantheon, Hera went straight to the House of War and actually fought the War God. While the Goddess put up a good fight against Kratos, she was still overcome by Kratos' wrath and had both of her wings ripped off. But before the final blow was struck, Hera was saved by Zeus, who drove off his son. This surprised her but still didn't change her opinion on him. Maybe.
  • Because she is the Goddess of Marriage, Hera hates anyone who takes that holy right lightly. That's why she despises Scott Summers for leaving his first wife for Jean Grey, then going on to cheat on her with Emma Frost, who Hera also hates. Originally, she targeted Peter Parker for erasing his entire marriage just to save his dying, elderly aunt, but she seems to have changed her tune somewhat after finding an alternate world where he not only kept his happy marriage but also has a daughter. She instead finds a new target in the form of Ato-ko Shriogane, who sabotages the relationship of lovers for her own amusement. Ato-ko, for her part, didn't seem to care but finds herself treading lightly around Hera lately.
    • Hera was however surprised that there were certain married deities who were happy with one another. She actually swore that as long as they were faithful to each other, Hera would always be their ally. Some are wondering if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
  • After finding out about Aphrodite's own insecurities, Hera has taken every opportunity to mock her. This includes saying how her having been made goddess of adultery just proves that she will never find genuine love, as any true love she would gain would be worthless since she would just cheat on them. These constant attacks usually end with the two fighting. Guess Hera still hasn't forgotten about that contest.
  • While Hera is currently estranged from her former husband, she does share his hatred for The Colossi (being reminded of the two Giants who tried to rape her and Athena) and of course Kratos (who killed her in a previous life).
  • Has been taking 50 aspirins a day after finding out there were two Hades in the pantheon. It seems she can't handle that much ham.
  • Has been seen around the Academy bizarrely clad in a Japanese school uniform. It's at this point many are wondering if Hera's new form is her version of a midlife crisis and is her trying to act as young as possible.
  • While Hera is well known to be tyrannical, Diana of Themyscira is one of her few soft spots, being the princess and heroine of the Amazon people Hera was in charge of creating. Diana actually thought her mother was cursed or something, but the Queen of the Gods assured her she wasn't and appreciated her concern.
    • It's unknown how she would feel about Diana if she found out she might be another child of Zeus.
  • While Hera and Hercules have buried the hatchet, she, and many others including Herc were surprised and a bit confused when Hera showed actual motherly affection towards the demigod. And it doesn't end with him, as she has also been doing the same to both Vulcan (who she literally threw out of Olympus) and Athena (one of Zeus' illegitimate children). Some have theorized it's because of the influence of a different Hera.
    • This affection goes out the window, however, when it comes to how Hercules tends to act in the DC Universe. For some reason, when he's there, he's strangely addicted to schemes that either punish and conquer her precious Amazons or manipulate them (especially Diana) in hopes of achieving ultimate power and taking over the world. She's heard rumors that Herc's been seen exploring the House of Knowledge with a young pink-haired girl called Illya after a recent conversation with Diana, but whatever connection it may have to this matter hasn't been made clear to her yet.
  • Has heard comments about another deity that others say remind them of Hera. For her part, Hera doesn't have any real opinion on Yuno and pretty much keeps to herself.
  • After mulling over a new adult form again for quite some time, she finally decided to harken back to her more classical divine image.

Intermediate Gods

    Mimikyu 
Mimikyu, Goddess of Desiring to be Another (The Disguise Pokemon, Mimikkyu)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_600px_778mimikyu.png
  • Intermediate Goddess. Greater Goddess with her Signature Z-Move or when Dynamaxed.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Theme song: Mimikyu's Song
  • Symbol: A crudely drawn Pikachu
  • Gender: Female
  • Moveset: Wood Hammer, Slash, Shadow Sneak, Play Rough
    • Z-Move: Let's Snuggle Forever
  • Portfolio: Bedsheet Ghost, Dark Is Not Evil, Paper-Thin Disguise, I Just Want to Have Friends, Dressing as Pikachu, Ghost and Fairy-type
  • Domains: Loneliness, Friendship, Ghosts
  • Allies: Casper, Banette, The House of Friendship and Camaraderie, Teddie, Team Rocket, The Cutie Mark Crusaders, Raven
  • Enemies: Metal deities (except for Metal Sonic)
  • Envies: Pikachu
  • The Disguise Pokemon Mimikyu has seen how popular Pikachu is and how many friends Pikachu has and thought to her self that if she dressed up like Pikachu, then Mimikyu would be able to have lots of friends too.
    • After learning Mimikyu's reasons for dressing like Pikachu, many deities wanted to become friends with Mimikyu, either because they felt sorry for her, or because they took and interest in her. The Avatars of Friendship gave her a party, a hug, a handshake (or "Tail" shake) and a promise to be there for her when she needs it.
  • While having ones neck snapped would be inconvenient to many people, whenever Mimikyu's diguise gets busted, Mimikyu's more sad about having its neck snapped because her costume could get torn.
    • While Mimikyu would much rather dress like Pikachu, sometimes unforeseen circumstances, Mimikyu's Pikachu costume gets damaged so Mimikyu has wear costumes based off other characters.
  • There used to be many deities who were really curious about what Mimikyu looked like under her costumes, but upon hearing stories of the last person dying from shock after seeing what Mimikyu looked like, a lot of deities abandoned their curiosity.
  • Even though Mimikyu has made a lot of good friends since her ascension, Mimikyu's developed a particularly strong bond with Koume Shirasaka due to her love of spooky things, going so far as to find zombies cute.
  • While Mimikyu has made a lot of friends since ascending, Mimikyu became friends with the Cutie Mark Crusaders since they came up with the idea of Mimikyu finding the one thing that she excels at so that she can make even more friends. Gods are just more interested as to how long it will take for the ponies to invite Mimikyu to see their wrestling friends.
    • That day eventually did come, and Mimikyu finds herself watching horror movies in the House of Vampires every now and then.
  • Despite a lot of deities no longer having an interest in Mimikyu's true form for fear of their lives, Mimikyu developed a close friendship with Raven due to her also having a true form that would terrify a normal person.

Lesser Gods

    The Evil Queen 
The Evil Queen, Goddess of Resenting Someone Else's Beauty (Queen Ingrid, The Queen-Witch, A Harmless Old Peddler Woman, Ol’ Granny, Grimhilde, Wicked Witch, Wicked Queen, Wretched Witch)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c357a5fc_5b9c_42e7_8a88_82d7e2b75148.jpeg
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/evil_queen_as_old_lady.jpg The Old Hag
Wretched Witch 
  • Lesser Goddess (Intermediate Goddess as Wretched Witch)
  • Symbol: Her magic mirror on the wall
  • Theme Songs: Magic Mirror, I've Been Tricked, A Special Sort of Death
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Domains: Personal Appearance, Shape, Food
  • Portfolio: Lady of Black Magic Worried About Being The Fairest Of Them All, Traumatic Transformations, the Original Disney Villain Death, Nightmare Fuel for the Disney Animated Canon and Their Theme Parks, Being One of the Hammiest of Them All
  • Followers: Most of the villains of the Disney animated canon, as she was the first
  • Allies: Kuja, Queen Sectonia, Courtney Gears
  • Enemies: Snow White and any other woman who dares to be fairer than she, Terra, Jak, Sho Minamimoto, Weiss Schnee, Zuko
  • In terms of magical power and hamminess, she is rivaled by Maleficent and Ursula, both of whom are capable of ugly transformations of their own and serve as her second- and third-in-command; in fact, she now lets the former keep the alliance of Disney villains organized and properly led most of the time while she stays busy admiring her beauty. But even they admit that due to the lengths she will go to satisfy her vanity, she is more monstrous.
  • Her thirst for vengeance against those fairer than her remains unquenched in the immortal world due to many of the most beautiful goddesses having powers at least as great as hers, but this only makes her all the more bitter and dangerous.
  • As a practicing witch, she harbours great hatred for Judge Claude Frollo, and no other Disney villain worth their life — aside from Gaston — will be seen with him.
  • Is not very happy that Snow White has ascended into the House of Royalty and not her. Because of this, she has made countless attempts to kill her, which are always foiled, often by Jak.
  • She, Vega, Sectonia and Kuja have formed a group known as "The Rule of Beauty". Where they would argue who of them is the prettiest of all (though Grimhilde prefers "fairest of them 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 lead 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.
  • Hates Weiss Schnee, because she reminds Grimhilde a bit too much of Snow White.
  • Likes to swear up and down that she was not in love with a stable boy, and she did not eventually redeem herself. The fact that Regina is Zuko's high priest doesn't help at all, and the fact that her alternate version is quite beloved by the fandom makes her steam with rage.
  • One backstory implies that Grimhilde was originally a good stepmother to Snow White until she was driven mad by her late father's spirit becoming the Magic Mirror.
  • She doesn't really like interacting with Nixon's Head: she finds him creepy. And crazy.
  • During her research, the Queen found out Imperator Furiosa and Ellen Ripley had a connection with her. Both declined any attempt to join her forces.
  • One theorist researched the actual ingredient for her poison apple and found that it was just a dose of deadly nightshade. Oh, and that it wasn't love's first kiss by that Prince that cured the poison, but "activated carbons" emitted by the Seven Dwarfs from all their mining.

Demigods

    Mello 
Mihael Keehl, God of Second Place Hatred (Mello, M)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mello_cover.png
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A half-eaten bar of chocolate
  • Theme Music: His A or B themes
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Extreme Chocolate Addicts, Red Oni, Inferiority Superiority Complex, Those Always Second-Best, Hot Blood, Mad Eye, Badass Bikers, Badass Bookworm
  • Domains: Inquisition, Force, Passion.
  • Herald: Matt
  • Allies: L, Rem, Mashiro Moritaka and Akito Takagi, Stocking, The King of All Cosmos
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Near to various degrees, even reaching a state of an alliance in certain circumstances. Soichiro Yagami as well
  • Enemies: Light Yagami, Misa Amane and Teru Mikami, Peacock, Bloody Marie
  • Odd Friendship: Queen Elsa, Randall Boggs
  • Conflicting Opinions: Kurapika
  • With L in the pantheon, Matt by his side and Near absent, Mello has made clear his intention of joining forces with his predecessor and catching Kira once and for all. If necessary, he has no qualms about stooping to methods even more unorthodox than those used by L. In fact, his burning hatred for being second place has lead to his title of Second Place Hatred.
    • He has expressed some pity towards Randall Boggs, as he knows exactly how it feels to be in second place all the time. It is currently unknown what will come from this, but Randall is at the very least happy to finally have someone realize the pain he goes through.
      • Rumor has it that compared to Near, Mello is always losing to him at everything. EVERYTHING.
  • Little has changed since Near's own ascension. However, once Near heard that Mello had ascended, Near headed to the House of Food to meet with Mello, who at the time was preparing for another verbal fight with Near. He was stunned when Near thanked him for providing some of the final clues of the Kira case and presented him with a bar of Mello's favorite chocolate as a way of saying "no hard feelings". While Mello still refuses to call Near a friend, he is somewhat more tolerant of his presence now, even going so far as to promise to help Near should Light attempt to become Kira again.
    • Since the ascension of Misa and Teru, two other Kiras working for Light, his grudge against Near has been diminished a bit more as they are now working together with L and even Rem at times to help keep them at bay.
  • Spends a suspicious amount of time with his herald, Matt.
  • Has been in the House of Crime with Vito Corelone for unknown reasons.
  • Despite their differences, he and Elsa have formed an Odd Friendship, over their fondness for chocolate.
    • He also found his way to Stocking's good graces, even sharing some of his chocolate for her sweets. They also reached a height in their friendship when they heard of The King Of All Cosmos and decided to submit a request for a candy covered Katamari star. Surprisingly, the King also had a Sweet Tooth, and brought the duo to a real-life version of a Gingerbread House from the story of "Hansel And Gretel", where his son rolled it all up and presented it to them. Due to this, they convinced him to add this unique sweet to the house of Food's menu, with his son rolling up orders for either them or to satisfy the cravings of the Gourmet Race Club.
  • Due to sharing a creator, he has formed something of an alliance with Ashirogi Muto a.k.a Mashiro Moritaka and Akito Takagi. It did anger him that Takagi looked just like Light, but between his admiration of every Death Note character and his general lack of similarities to the personality of Light, Mello has decided to overlook that... For now.
  • Met Kurapika in one of the Kurta's one-hour-a-day forced tours to the outside and talked to him for a bit (actually pretty rare, considering the Kurapika's distant nature). Despite both being blond, hot-tempered teen geniuses with confusing appearances who had managed to reach very high ranks in the mafia in order to achieve Revenge (and against villains with similar voices), Mello thought Kurapika's methods were too soft. note  He didn't really hate Kurapika, but his Honor Before Reason attitude did irritate him a little.
  • Surprisingly, while Soichiro is willing to work with him, he is actually quite angry with him. The reason for this is because Melo is responsible for the kidnapping of Sayu Yagami, his daughter, as well as her being in such a state of shock she needs to be kept on a wheelchair and moved by her mother. Mello has yet to respond to this revelation.

    Othello 
Othello, The Crazy Jealous God (The Green-Eyed Monster, the Moor, the Moor of Venice, An old black ram, A Barbary horse, The Thick Lips - Don't EVER call him by the last three)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/othello_5.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The handkerchief he gave to Desdemona
  • Theme Song: "The Willow Song"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Ambiguously Brown, married Desdemona, killed Desdemona out of jealousy and killed himself after learning the truth, Fallen Hero, Horrible Judge of Character, Love Makes You Crazy, Tragic Hero, A Tragedy of Impulsiveness
  • Domain: Love, Jealousy, Murder
  • Allies: Those who are Star-Crossed Lovers, especially Romeo and Juliet, Jean-Luc Picard, Professor X, Mario
  • Enemies: Parsee Mizuhashi, Pride, those who cheat on their spouse, Frollo, Gaston, Lady Macbeth, Macbeth, any racist in the Pantheon, especially Calvin Candie, Stephen and Eric Cartman
  • Pities: King Arthur
  • Pitied by: The rest of the House of Love, Simba, Lara Croft
  • Superior: William Shakespeare
  • Complicated Relationship with: Esmeralda, Belle and the Beast
  • Opposed by: Stephen Strange, Neo, Superman / Clark Kent
  • The tragic man that lets his jealousy and insecurity manipulated by Iago to kill both his wife Desdemona and commits suicide after learning the truth, Othello's spirit wandering aimlessly within the Pantheon until being discovered by the House of Love. Out of pity, many of them voted to let him enter the Pantheon under the temple that is the reason for him to commit his most famous act. Othello took the chance to have some form redemption for his action and swore to make up for the spirit and memory of Desdemona in any way that he can.
  • He and his creator William Shakespeare had a sit down and heart to heart. While Othello is still uneasy around his creator because of his tragic ending, Othello is still thankful that Shakespeare gave him a name, character arc, titled the work after him and remove the racism when adapting the source material.
    • With Shakespeare's introduction, he met another Star-Crossed Lovers Romeo and Juliet. He congrats them for finally being to be together and gives advice for the young couple so their relationship doesn't turn out like him. Doubly so because Romeo and him share many look-a-likes.
  • In his daily duty, Othello usually tries to advice his followers to either give up on their obsession or working out their feeling in a healthy way to avoid the same mistake that he did and would apologizes for any incident his followers cost and harshly discipline them.
  • Dissociate himself with Frollo and Gaston because both of them have resorted to murder in order to prove their obsession, something that reminds Othello eerily of his own shameful act.
    • He especially despises Frollo because of the latter's hypocrisy, the fact that Esmeralda didn't return his affection AND being a big racist against Romani, something that Othello absolutely despises.
  • Because of his action, Othello's very presence is a point of contention in the House of Love. Some are disgusted by his action. Some pitied him for being manipulated by Iago. Even a few thinks his act is romantic and wish their their partner would do the same. Some even took his action to threaten their partner to never cheat on them.
    • Esmeralda, Belle and the Beast are all wary of him due to his action reminds them of Gaston and Frollo. He acknowledges that he can never undid the murder of Desdemona and tearfully said that he is trying to atone for it every single day in the Pantheon. This speech caused the three to soften their opinion on him.
    • The Yandere Quartet offered him an honorary membership when it was still running. Othello immediately denies it, much to their disappointment, because he is trying to distant himself from his action and being in a group filled with crazy, violent lover would... hinder it, to say the least.
  • Hate Parsee Mizuhashi with a passion due to how her temple influenced his shameful action and avoid her as much as he can. He also shares that feeling towards Pride, to a lesser extend.
  • Because of his long history of performance, Othello ended up with many look-a-like in the Pantheon, include many with different ethnicity:
    • King Arthur and Othello once had a heart-to-heart because of appearance and Othello feels sorry because Guinevere did cheat on him.
    • Was incredibly disturbed when found out that he looked like the live-action version of Dr. Manhattan and avoids visit his place as often as possible. The same story also happened when he encountered Hannibal Lecter.
    • Doctor Strange once stormed into his temple because he mistook Othello for one of his enemy Baron Mordo. After clearing out the misunderstanding, Strange doesn't particularly like interact with him given that he had lost many of his love ones to death.
    • Neo once thought he is his friend Morpheus and was quite disappointed when that isn't the case. Neo also doesn't particularly like Othello either because he also lost Trinity. Superman also mistook him for his editor Perry and, after knowing what his temple represents, suddenly had the urge to punch his Regime counterpart once again for attempting to kidnap Lois from his universe.
    • Simba was disturbed when heard that Othello shares a voice similar to his father's. After learning about the latter's story, Simba feels incredibly sorry for Othello because the lion had also let his doubt consumed and hurt everyone around him for a long time.
    • Has a deep hatred of the Macbeths because they overthrown their king and the two of them share many look-a-like with either him or his lost love Desdemona. Another part of Othello is also jealous that they're Happily Married to each other. Not to mention that Lady Macbeth once tried to seduce him to help her cause of overthrowing their superior Shakespeare by posing at his dead love Desdemona, causing Othello to nearly kill her if not for Macbeth's intervention
    • Much to the surprise of everyone, he is on decent term with Professor X and Jean-Luc Picard because, outside of similar in appearance, the two of them are sympathetic to his flaws and are working to help him overcome them.
    • Once mistook Lara Croft for his love Desdemona and broke down to tear right after kneeling in front of her begging for forgiveness. After reluctantly clearing out the misunderstanding, Lara took pity on him and is one of the people that hope for his redemption.
    • Mario was once attacked by Othello because the latter mistook one of his live action version for his arch enemy Iago. After clearing out the misunderstanding, the two has a friendly relationship with each other.
  • Advises his sort-of Distaff Counterpart Ooi to not let her jealousy turn into distrust and violence like he did.
  • Being a victim of racism and one of the first "black" protagonist whose work is a Long Runner, Othello understandably HATES any and all racists in the Pantheon, especially hearing the rising of the slave trade in the Western world during the 19th-20th century. This is why he promised to murder Eric Cartman and Calvin Candie whenever he saw them.
    • One night, when he was trying to sneak in to kill Candie, a black man named Stephen asked what Othello is doing. When answering that he is killing a slave owner and offers to free him, not only did Stephen rejects, he sounds the alarm and Othello was almost captured for Candie to enslave. Othello barely escaped and carried intense hatred for Stephen for being a Boomerang Bigot.
