  • Spam Intermediate Gods
  • Spam Symbol: Giant barefoot stomp and Spam.
  • Spam Alignment: Chaotic Spam Neutral

  • Their most recent rendition of "Spanish Inquisition" was treated to an ad-lib that quite frankly wasn't planned by anyone involved, and yet it got the entire audience howling. Mami Tomoe had been in the audience when Charlotte had decided, for reasons known only to herself, to jump out of Mami's arms and run onstage. Mami gave chase, and darted on stage just as the Head Inquisitor had made his request for "a Rack". And a Spam.
  • Quite surprised in the face of Presea Combatir, because she's a lumberjack and she's OK, and probably if allowed to grow up, will cut down trees while wearing high heels, suspendies and a bra.
  • Treated Chaldea Security to a free performance of Monty Python and the Holy Grail as thanks for saving the Human Order. All the Knights of the Round Table marvelled at its authenticity. Even Fou. ESPECIALLY Fou.
  • To the surprise of some, King Arthur and his lackeys have no problem with being associated with them, and sometimes appear like their Holy Grail appearances.
  • Strangely, they based their show out of London for its' entire run rather than moving to Austin, Minnesota to be close to the Spam factory.

    Samantha and Darrin Stephens 
Samantha and Darrin Stephens, Co-Deities of the Fantastic Comedy
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bewitched.png
Samantha to the left, Darrin to the right
  • Intermediate Goddess (Samantha); Quasideity (Darrin)
  • Symbol: Their show's logo
  • Theme Song: Bewitched Theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good with Neutral tendencies (Samantha) Lawful Good (Darrin)
  • Portfolios: Muggle–Mage Romance, Deadpan Snarker
  • Domains: Good, Magic, Community, Travel
  • Followers: The Librarian, Ned, Lisa
  • Allies: Jeannie
  • Enemies: Evil witches, especially Bellatrix Lestrange, Maleficent,
  • Opposed by: Lisa Simpson, Cersei Lannister, The Dursleys
  • After a bit of convincing, Jeannie was finally successful in bringing an old friend into the Pantheon. The oldest version of Hot Witch in the known Multiverse, Samantha won hearts over in her show Bewitched. The idea of a Pantheon intrigued her, and she decided to gain godhood herself. Darrin obliged to join her. There's no telling what kind of trouble his wife can get into. Somebody has to watch over her.
    • There were some detractors. Lisa argued that her show promoted that powerful women should submit and be mere housewives. While many agreed she had a point, their series was thought to be to iconic for the negatives to bring her down.
    • Cersei joins the list of detractors, but for completely different reasons. She bemoans the fact that a powerful wizard would be subordinate to her husband. Both Samantha and Darrin objected to that reasoning.
  • Othe than his romance with Samantha, many know Darrin for being the subject of the most prominent actor switch in the history of fiction. There is at least one person that's on the same boat as him. Asagi goes through many voice actresses in the search for her own game Darrin wished her the best.
  • There were no shortage of evil witches that disapproved of the couple's ascension. There are a few that are of particular note.
    • Maleficent was one of the main detractors who wanted to keep her out of the Pantheon. She commented that it was only her looks that managed to land her a spot. Samantha shot back, stating if Maleficent was a better guest she would have been invited. Tensions have only continued to simmer.
    • There was a time when Darrin got kidnapped. Seeking help in the House of Magic, the Three Magicians managed to track him down. It turns out he was being tortured by Bellatrix. It was no surprise that she saw any romance between a muggle and a witch as an insult to her kind. Together they were able to defeat her, forcing her to flee. Darrin was able to make a full recovery, but remains on edge.
  • Is held to a particularly high regard among Magical Girls. It is said that the creator of the first magical girl drew his inspiration from Samantha. Thus why Sailor Moon and Madoka were so excited to finally meet with her in person.
  • Sabrina refers to her as a "cool aunt" in contrast to her real aunts. She liked that Samantha was more lenient in expressing her magic. That does get the two into trouble, with Hilda, Zelda and Darrin scolding them for their actions. It's not that it will hold them back for long.
  • It was her that inspired many other witches and wizards to use broomsticks as a means of travel. One of which ascended as one of the most iconic examples. Kiki was glad that Samantha made it into the Pantheon. While delivering mail seems like a bore to Samantha, she does enjoy racing the girl at times.
  • Poor Darrin has been changed to so many things one wonders if he developed a superpower of it. As it turns out, Lois Lane can attest of one of her colleagues who went through as many transformations. Jimmy Olsen used to fool around Superman's alien tech during the Silver Age and turned into all sorts of monstrosities. She herself even turned into a black girl. While she won't delve too much into the matter, she is at least glad there's someone she can talk to that has been through the same ordeal.
  • As an advertiser, he is well versed in working with Don Draper. While Darrin knows the man has a knack for the stuff, he has called Don's behavior somewhat troubling. He also outright refused to have Samantha star in a commercial. Not because of the risk of prying eyes, but due to her unpredictable abilities.
    • Gets along better with Roger who understood what being thrust into the limelight could be like for an ordinary advertiser. The fake spy also showed Darrin the benefits of being in the Pantheon, which includes meeting all sorts of new people to converse with.
  • It is a hard find, but some mortals were able to find a movie version of their adventures, with actors playing the roles of the co-deities. But don't expect to be able to watch it for long without incurring their wrath. Samantha has done away with most of them with a spell, but copies do exist.
  • His arrival in the Pantheon revealed a long-kept secret. Darrin was a secret part of the Dursleys clergy. The foster parents had hoped that he could contain Samantha and force into a normal life. Yet he has long since accepted her for who she was, which angered the Dursleys greatly. Yet they wouldn't dare go up against a which that could turn them all into toads with a wiggle of her nose.

    White Mage 
White Mage, Patron Saint of Brick Jokes
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whitemage.png
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her robes
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: White Mage, Dude Magnet, No Good Deed Goes Unpunished, Using a Huge Mallet, Defeating the Final Boss For the Sake of Joke Whose Set-Up Was Years Ago
  • Heralds: Priest, Shaman, and Healer
  • Allies: Fighter, Warrior of Light, Rosa, Terra, Aeris, Rinoa, Yuna, Cosmos, Amy Rose, Ryu
  • Conflicting opinions on: Black Mage, Thief, Red Mage, Vivi, Garland
  • Enemies: Sarda, Chaos, most of the Final Fantasy villains, YHVH, Zamasu
  • Ascended in recognition of her defeat of Chaos, even if the only reason White Mage and her group defeated the dark lord was to fulfill a punchline to an anticlimactic joke set nine years before (as Black Mage was in disbelief that a party of only healers could go anywhere). And needless to say, both Chaos himself and his vessel in White Mage's world, Sarda, are pretty unhappy about her presence.
  • Aside from Token Good Teammate Fighter, she's not all that positive about the Light Warriors, given they're jerks who caused her much pain, even if indirectly, and still wanted to take credit for the defeat of Chaos if not for her eventually campaigning for the Dark Warriors as the true saviors. Special contempt is reserved for Black Mage, who's not only as evil as it gets, but a perverted Abhorrent Admirer. Still, Red Mage and Thief seem to not have much resentments for White Mage.
  • She's gotten along pretty well with Fighter's original inspiration Warrior of Light, and all the magic women of the Final Fantasy series. Even if her Black Mage forever taints her opinion of him, Vivi is still trying to win White Mage over, and the fact that in her world Garland was a Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain who White Mage decided to campaign as part of the true saviors also makes her not fully oppose the version in the Pantheon.
  • Amy Rose decided to go after White Mage hearing she was another girl who attacked with an Hyperspace Mallet, and their similar personalities made them get along, even if their love lives are true opposites (Amy is ignored by the object of her affection, White Mage is disgusted to no end by the guy with a crush on her).
  • Decided to come closer to Ryu for reminding of his former bodyguard, Black Belt, and White Mage has since assisted Ryu on occasion by healing him after fights.
  • Even if she indirectly is the God of her world as Sarda accidentally sent her to the beginning of time, where White Mage ordered the creation of light and matter, the Main House still thinks she's not that much more powerful than the Light Warriors. That being said, being a creator figure makes White Mage an automatic enemy of YHVH.
  • Is well-liked by Cosmos for her defeat of Chaos and being a paragon of good even if the Crapsack World White Mage lived in made sure all her benevolent deeds eventually collapsed. Zamasu argues her world is awful because the universe being created by a mortal breaking the time taboo and declared it beyond saving, expressing his interest in wanting to blow the whole thing up out of disgust. White Mage proceeded to hammer him in the face for being such a prick.

  • Domains: Dark Comedy, Swearing, Ranting
  • Followers: Many, many mortal comedians.
  • Upon ascending and having it explained to him what it meant, he proceeded to launch into a twenty-five minute long rant about how ridiculous the idea was that now he's the invisible man people pray to, what the hell sort of universe is this, although if it's for real, now that he's a god he can have fun playing with the mortals, especially the ones who were assholes to him while he was alive on earth. He concluded by saying "fuck the pantheon, fuck the gods...and fuck everyone now that I think of it!"
  • He still performs his famous routines on-stage every week for packed audiences. When it was once asked how he can continue to mock religion now that he himself is a god, he replied "You're just gonna have to figure that shit out on your own". He's eagerly waiting for the final battle between good and evil, as he think it's funny when a lot of people die — now a lot of gods dying, that's hilarious.
  • Is actually a very nice and gentleman, and is happy to receive visitors and chat with them when he isn't on stage.
    • In fact, when Ringo Starr of the Beatles isn't telling stories to child deities about Thomas the Tank Engine and friends, Mr. Carlin is happy to take over.

    Gudako 
Gudako, God of Publisher Mocking Humor (The Nameless Master, Beast VII)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/female_protagonist_riyo.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Learning with Manga!FGO logo (and a broken phone)
  • Theme Song: Learning with Manga! FGO Opening
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (borderline Chaotic Evil)
  • Portfolio: Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist, Complains about Fate/Grand Order mechanics, Abusive Master, Psycho Lesbian, Gacha-Addict
  • Domains: Humor, Gacha, Self-Publisher Bashing
  • Allies: Quagmire, Nobuyuki Sugou, Ethan Roark Jr., Katsuragi, Tsunade, Christy Plunkett, Popoku and Pipimi, Howard and Kreese
  • Rivals: Angry Birds, the Monkeys, Fire Emblem deities, Puella Magi deities
  • Enemy: Master of Chaldea, Paul Bunyan, Goetia, any female deities
  • Opposed by: The Servants, The Idols
  • A very unstable girl who was assigned as a Master of Chaldea, but rather than actually saving the world, she decided to spent time gambling away to get Servants that she'll never get and harass those that she did get for her own amusement. Apparently, this is all humanity depends on.
  • Gudako emerges from the depths of the phone containing an app for Fate/Grand Order and now wants to cause havoc. One problem... she doesn't have her Servants with her, and nobody wants to make a contract with her because they find her creepy. At best, Artoria, Jeanne, Altera, and Elizabeth Bathory find her pitiable to hang out with except the part about Gudako making fun of Altria.
  • For some reason, she is incredibly uninterested on Astolfo. Maybe because there was someone like her named Gudao who has a massive hard-on for Astolfo.
  • Gudako is... obsessed with servants. But because of her terrible luck, she never get what she wants from the gacha. It was so terrible that she tried to create her servant made of udon dough and Grail Mud, one that has the power of the creator god without actually being a Divine Spirit to avoid dealing with the summoning issue and loss of power. However, when she found out that "Paul Bunyan" has the power of a 1-star servant, she abandons it until Bunyan was founded and contracted with the Master of Chaldea. The Master does not respect Gudako's obsession for rarity rather than the strength of the servants themselves.
  • She is not very thrifty, considering that she's willing to spend countless amount of money for servants that she will almost certainly never get. Long story, short, she has a gambling addiction. She often go gambling with Tsunade to get more money so that she could spend more money for Fate/Grand Order but will probably lose more money and the vicious cycle continue. At least she knows that there is another sucker suffering from the pain of never getting what they want through sheer bad luck.
    • She refuses to attend Gamblers Anonymous alongside fellow gambler Christy Plunkett, saying that she will not stop until she gets every last waifu in the game.
  • Many of the Masters in the Pantheon are very skeptical of Gudako's status because of how unprofessional and uncaring of her servants, even by some standards of Masters. She doesn't care because none of them mean anything to her. For all she cares, they are just people she sees in Craft Essense.
  • Because she often sexually harasses many of her female associates, many of the women are very distant toward her, especially with the heroic spirits. Strangely, she seems to be hanging with other sexual harassers, probably because it'll get her closer to other girls.
  • Her constants ranting toward Type-Moon and Delightwork for the quality of their game caught the attention of Popoku and Pipimi, who has a tons of beef with Takeshobo, their publisher. Their crude humor despite their chibi appearance gave them something to bond over.
  • Much of the House of Gaming find her to be an annoyance as they find her outside, ranting about the game's lack of an Noble Phantasm animation skip button or the severely low summon rates in banners.
    • She seems to only be in interested in Fate/Grand Order. Anything other mobile games often go past her, so she neglects the gods of Kantai Collection. She also refuses to play Fire Emblem Heroes or Magia Record out of belief that they are taking ideas from Fate/Grand Order.
    • Even other mobile games are out of the question for her, with none of them has the flair as F/GO.
    • In the past, she used to play THE iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage, another gacha. She hasn't touched it for a while since getting into Fate/Grand Order, but it doesn't stop her from getting more idols to suit her unwanted desires.

  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: A birdcage next to some birdseed
  • Theme Music:
  • Alignment:
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Chases, Comedy
  • Heralds (moreso for the former pair): Granny, Hector the Bulldog, Sylvester Jr.
  • Allies: Bugs Bunny (less so in Wile E.s’ case), Tom & Jerry
  • Enemies: Judge Doom
  • Frequently Involved with: The Rock of Ages (Wile E. only)
  • Chases are a common occurrence in the wacky world of Looney Tunes, with Bugs Bunny commonly being pursued by and outwitting those who are targeting him. Among the various chases that happen feature two pairs of animals: a cat and a canary, and a coyote and a road runner. Sylvester the Cat and Tweety Bird are the pets of Granny, with the Puddy Tat frequently trying to find ways to eat Tweety, but to no avail, be it as a result of Tweety’s wits, Granny’s protectiveness, Hector the bulldog’s brutality, or some other unfortunate circumstance. In a far off desert, the perpetually hungry Wile E. Coyote devises a bunch of ideas to catch the Road Runner, but fate is especially cruel to him as no matter what he does, everything that the coyote comes up with backfires on him in some way.
  • Inside a house, Sylvester was chasing Tweety around in yet another bid to eat the bird, but nothing would work out for him. A bungled attempt resulted in Sylvester crashing into a box full of papers, with one of those papers positing a good vacation spot. In a desert elsewhere, Wile E. Coyote was trying to blow up the Road Runner with some dynamite, only to be blown far away and onto an airplane. The Coyote was desperately trying to hang on for his dear life, sometimes crashing head first into a bunch of hawks that clawed at him, all while he was holding up a sign signaling how painful things would get for him. Eventually, the Coyote and the plane landed and Wile E. got off, hoping that the worst was over only to be run over by a separate airplane. The Road Runner managed to reach the Coyote and proceeded to mock him before speeding off, much to Wile E.’s irritation. As for Sylvester and Tweety, they ended up getting off the airplane and making their way to a much larger home alongside Granny, with Sylvester biding his time until he can eat Tweety for good.
  • Generally speaking, conflicts that happen between both parties don’t intersect all that often, but when they do, things get chaotic mainly for Sylvester and the Coyote. The two have previously worked together in an unsuccessful endeavor at trying to catch Speedy Gonzales and the Road Runner when the latter two were competing in a race. Both Tweety and the Road Runner find it amusing just how hard their respective enemies fail at their goals, even if teaming up with each other was an option. That and how Sylvester and Wile E. sometimes blame the other for certain attempts that backfired on each other.
  • Many of Tom and Jerry’s antics have reached both Sylvester & Tweety and The Coyote & The Road Runner. While most of Tom and Jerry’s spats have intersected with that of Sylvester and Tweety given how both pairs tend to fight at home often and various other locations at times, not to mention how they’re frenemies overall (even if the latter part isn’t as apparent with Sylvester and Tweety), the cat and mouse sometimes end up in the desert, where Wile E.’s contraptions sometimes end up cartoonishly maiming Tom alongside the Coyote. Tom has helped out Sylvester from time to time and in turn, Jerry and Tweety have taken to helping each other out, be it from their respective frenemies or from some other threat. Sylvester is a bit jealous of Tom scoring a few victories against Jerry whereas Sylvester never won against that bird (and even if Sylvester was victorious, it was during instances where he isn’t up against Tweety or Speedy Gonzales).
  • Whenever Sylvester isn’t trying to make a meal out of Tweety or Speedy, he’ll get caught up in some other hijinx (at one point, he got into a spat with Foghorn Leghorn over what a chicken is and lost). Sometimes, he’ll travel with Porky Pig and try without much luck to convince him that the place they’re staying at for a couple of nights is haunted. Other times, he’ll act like a good, if dimwitted, father to his son. And then there’s the instances in the Pantheon where he’ll join some other stray cats in harassing some sleepyhead and things during that time turn out a lot better than what one would assume from Sylvester.
  • As far as most people are aware of, Tweety is a cute little bird that doesn’t warrant being eaten by anyone. That said, he has shown to have a surprisingly cruel streak beneath that cute look towards his would-be tormentors (including Sylvester). Unlike other fake cuties who are just doing it for their own gain, Tweety has stated that it’s for self-defense given how often he’s targeted. Tweety’s hidden sadism is mostly reserved towards those in the Pantheon that have attempted to target him enough times to the point of trying to kill him.
  • Having gotten tired of his constant failures at eating Tweety, Sylvester learned of Katz Motel and met with the owner, Katz. Sylvester explained his dilemma to Katz and the latter agreed to take care of Tweety. The puddy tat later realized that this was a bad idea after learning just how much more ruthless Katz is and after learning that Katz was going to try and kill Tweety instead of eating him, returned to where Tweety’s birdcage was at and got into a fight with Katz. While Sylvester initially succeeded at driving out Katz, the latter made another attempt to kill Tweety a couple days later, only to be thwarted by the latter’s craftiness, with Katz swearing vengeance on Tweety and Sylvester while being chased by armed aircraft. Having recalled his rivalries with other cats that wanted Tweety for themselves, Sylvester grew to hate Katz and Tweety shared that opinion, calling Katz a “worse puddy tat” than what he was used to.
  • Thanks to Granny’s numerous stints as a sleuth, Sylvester & Tweety have gotten themselves involved in a handful of mysteries that strike the Pantheon. Even in those times where the two are working together, the puddy tat still can’t resist the opportunity to eat Tweety for himself much to the latter’s annoyance. Even if Sylvester does manage to play a role in providing closure to a mystery, he never gets the credit for it to his frustration. Detective Pikachu, Basil, and Dawson, all of them animal detectives, have sometimes gotten involved with Sylvester and Tweety whenever the two are sleuthing around (loosely speaking), though the three often have to tell Sylvester to (at the very least during these instances) seriously keep his desire to eat Tweety in check.
  • As part of a bet to save a park from closing, Tweety traveled around the world in 80 days to collect pawprints from 80 different cats. He succeeded in that goal, with the 80th pawprint being from Sylvester himself. Phileas Fogg & Jean Passepartout, both of whom have already taken on an 80-day journey of their own, have given Tweety their approval for the bird’s own journey and berated Sylvester for repeatedly getting in the way of such just for having a snack.
  • One of Wile E.’s frequent attempts to catch the Road Runner involves using a boulder and putting it on different kinds of contraptions, with these attempts ending with a flattened coyote. Not one to really learn his lesson in spite of being a so-called “super genius”, Wile E. has taken to getting The Rock of Ages and its heralds involved in his various schemes, with those particular attempts ending in even more humiliating ways than if he tried to do this with a regular rock. While The Rock of Ages doesn’t hold anything against both the Coyote and the Road Runner, it really doesn’t want to be constantly involved with them, especially after seeing just how badly the Coyote’s plans backfire, with or without specialized boulders.
  • The Coyote sees a lot of himself in The Professor, highly intelligent individuals who are always trying to thwart their respective enemies and constantly failing no matter what. The Professor, already suffering from a bad losing streak from Felix the Cat and hearing from Wile E. about how sometimes The Road Runner ends up getting caught by someone else, was willing to help the Coyote out in not just capturing the Road Runner, but so that The Professor can at least win in something. As with just about everything from both parties, their joint effort in capturing The Road Runner ended in failure. Despite this, The Professor and The Coyote have met each other on a regular basis since then, with Wile E. sometimes giving The Professor advice on how to make sure the latter’s next attempt to defeat Felix doesn’t go badly.
  • With how much suffering both Sylvester and Wile E. endure in trying to capture their respective prey (and Sylvester still suffering outside of his normal chase routines), the two have managed to find solace knowing that there’s plenty in the Pantheon who have suffered a lot of comedic abuse, but still keep on going. Both have regularly hanged out with Chuck and Pluto, with the Coyote understanding Chuck’s pain very well and is hoping to at least have some of that hidden power Chuck has. Sylvester is a bit jealous of how Pluto has an owner that at least treats him better than how Sylvester normally is, but the puddy tat has at least tried to be open to meeting Pluto, even if the cat’s various encounters with other dogs have ended badly.
  • The many speedsters in the Pantheon have proven to be a source of irritation for the Coyote (and to a lesser extent, Sylvester thanks to his conflicts with Speedy Gonzales). To him, seeing those speed demons run around freely and get the upper hand against their adversaries is like a cruel reflection of the Coyote repeatedly trying and failing to snatch the Road Runner. As for the Road Runner itself, that bird seems to enjoy the company of other speedsters (except Eobard Thawne apparently) and has sometimes raced with them across the Pantheon for fun.
    • Speaking of Thawne, the Coyote did try to get ahold of the latter for a plan, but ended up being on the receiving end of a scathing speech about how futile the Coyote’s efforts are at being a “super-genius” and just wasting his time overall on something unachievable when Eobard himself has proven much more effective in just about everything. This ended up only angering the Coyote further to the point of begrudgingly agreeing with the Road Runner about how twisted Eobard is.
  • Both Wile E. and Sylvester see the Houses of Science and Technology as good places to cook up a good plan that would enable them to capture their respective enemies. The Coyote has used those places more often than Sylvester has given the former’s self-serving claim of “super genius”, but even with access to some highly advanced parts that would theoretically give the Coyote a better chance at catching his prey, those devices somehow always find a way to blow up or crush the Coyote, with the ideas that Sylvester got from those places not faring any better either. Adding insult to injury for the Coyote is how many actual geniuses and technicians see him as a wannabe that doesn’t know what he’s doing.
  • Given the numerous similarities between Wile E. Coyote and Ralph Wolf (mainly in how they are focused in capturing a certain animal and failing at it, as well as their visual similarities to the point where Ralph is Wile E.’s cousin), the two have gotten along with each other very well. Wile E. has even asked Ralph for some help in trying to catch the Road Runner, but the results have proven to be obviously fatal for both Ralph and Wile E.
  • If there is one deity that all four share a hatred towards, it would be Judge Doom. It’s not just his goal of wanting to destroy all toons that unnerve them, but his creation, The Dip, would prove fatal if it somehow ended up getting involved in the regular chases. Sylvester and Wile E. both agreed to never use The Dip in any of their schemes no matter what, with Tweety sharing a similar sentiment and the Road Runner just flat out runs from that substance should he see it. If anything, taking down Judge Doom would be one of the very few, if not only, instances that both parties would work together to stop a justified danger. Wile E. and Sylvester are also frightened of the possibility that any of their failed plans that fall into Judge Doom’s hands could become a lot more dangerous if used against them and other toons.
  • Wil E has been thinking what kind of silly Latin name he could assign to Sylvester and Tweety. So far, the ones he could come up with were respectively "Chasius Puddytatus" and "Punius Littlebirdus"

  • On Good Terms with: Superheroes in general, unless they wear capes.
  • Tense Relations with (but sometimes also Respects): Fellow fashion designers, such as Rarity, Erika Kurumi/Cure Marine, Tomoyo Daidouji, Marinette Dupain-Cheng/Ladybug (as a designer, but not as a heroine), and Hayate Yagami
  • Enemies: Syndrome, Junko Enoshima, Eobard Thawne, Cruella De Vil, The Plutonian, Supervillains in general, Ragyo Kiryuin
  • Annoyed by: Any god who uses capes (NO CAPES!) or other dangling pieces of costume. Also, supermodels and the scantily-clad.
  • Pities: Adrien Agreste/Cat Noir (when she's not complaining about his belt-tail)
  • A question that has lingered in the minds of several people: Where do superheroes obtain their suits? The answer for some? A specialized tailor whose job is to create suits for superheroes, in a parallel industry. One of these tailors is a loud, hammy eccentric by the name of Edna Mode, who was sadly forced to turn her talents to fashion models after Supers were rendered illegal. However, when Bob Parr, also known as Mr. Incredible, was needed for a situation involving the villain Syndrome, Edna jumped at the chance to return to her old passion, having grown tired of dealing with such a monotonous job.
  • Edna Mode ascended under the request of Bob and Helen Parr after a particularly devastating battle against the villains of the Pantheon. Of course, there was the issue of what title she can hold. Helen then had the idea of her taking the title of Fashion Designer, but she had forgotten that someone else has already moved there and is honestly a better pick; Edna doesn't even like fashion (super)models anyway.
    • Bob then noted that her mannerisms are always reminiscent of Camp, his note was heard, and so it was done.
  • Edna was happy to see the Parrs once again and for helping her take a spot here. And she's made it clear that she will be their exclusive designer "throughout the known universe and until the end of time."
  • Her temple takes the form of her mansion, complete with base where she creates the super suits. She also has security covered, but won't say no to improvements.
  • With a lot of superheroes in the Pantheon, she's willing to do repair work on their costumes if they so desire, and is knowledgeable enough to proof them against (Super Speed) friction and explosives, can adapt to heroes with stretching powers, be comfortable for the skin, and machine-washable, too. She's can even make clothing that can turn invisible with its wearer, if the wearer can't already make it so. Bulletproofing and resistant against burning is also a default feature for all of her outfits.
    • However, she is put off by the fact that several of them wear capes and refuses to work with them until they ditch it. For those who have practical reasons to wear capes (Batman uses it as a glider, ensnarer, stunner, and to better evade attacks; Doctor Strange's Cloak of Levitation is sentient and so can un-snag itself if need be; Spawn's morphs to his needs) or have no reason to worry (Batman's prepared enough at least to have a quick-release mechanism on his cape; Superman's invincible and strong enough for this not to pose a problem usually, it's tough enough to protect a weaker person behind it when he covers them with it, and he does use enemies' capes against them and even once used a Cape Snag on him against the puller), she still gets annoyed.
    • Of course, capes aren't the only thing she's annoyed with. Other dangling pieces of costumes are things she doesn't like, as they can be just as dangerous as capes, and she sees a lot of this in the GUAG Magical Girl Sisterhood. Long hair is a problem, too; while Violet does at least keep hers down, some other magical girls have their hair decorated in ways that leaves it more vulnerable to grabbing than usual; she's looking at (high or "thick") ponytails or twintails (and thus has contention with the latter's Holy Protector Souji Mitsuka), and overly [like beyond waist-length]] long hair).
    • Another issue she has is with outfits that are skimpy or revealing; after all, a costume should protect one's identity and oneself (unless the person in question has Super Toughness that can protect the suit like Superman's bio-electric field), not to mention kid-friendly as children are among those who would be witnesses/rescued. People like Wonder Woman and Black Widow skirt the line of what is acceptable for her, but Emma Frost crosses it completely as what she wears is essentially glorified lingerie.
  • Given that so many of her previous superhero clients have met their ends due to Syndrome's schemes, she naturally opposes him. And his demise by getting his cape snagged to a turbine only proved her point.
  • Had contested relations with other fashion designers in the Pantheon, given that she hates supermodels.
    • The first was Rarity, whom she naturally had some problems with given that she was in the fashion industry. That said, the unicorn does more than just design clothes for models, having a touch of practicality, and actually making them maneuverable in. And being in the Pantheon for much longer means she has more experience with other body types, which Edna at least can respect. There's also her experience with the Life Fibers.
      • Speaking of those, after being given everything there was to know about the Life Fibers, and weighing all the pros and cons, she decided that perhaps it was in the GUAG's best interests to reclaim the supply the GUAE stole from them. That said, strategy isn't one of the qualities she's exhibited so far, so she's delegated it to GUAG Command and hopes to get some results.
    • Is a little impressed with how Tomoyo at least keeps most of the costumes she makes for Sakura simple, even once having the foresight to use rubber in an outfit she made for a battle against an electric elemental creature (the Thunder card), and is at least using better protective materials since her ascension.
    • As a superheroine, Edna approves of Ladybug's outfit, being cape-less and form fitting, though she sees the pigtail ribbons a little concerning, not to mention the, ahem, visual appeal in her skintight costume (alas, given it's magic, Edna can't do a thing about it). As a budding fashion designer however, Edna can see that Marinette has potential, though things got tense when the supersuit designer badmouthed Adrien for being a fashion model, which Marinette was very defensive about.
      • Upon meeting Adrien himself at a different time however, this turned to pity as he only did it because of his restrictive father. As for his Cat Noir costume, she finds his belt-tail a glaring design error as it can be easily grabbed, even though Ladybug has needed to use it in a few occasions, and tells him to at least wind the belt around his waist after transforming to avoid this problem.
    • Has nothing good to say about Junko Enoshima; she's the vilest of vile, and is easily a supervillain with her plans to sink the entire world into despair, plain and simple.
  • Even with all that, she still works for the fashion industry even if she's bored with it, and she's apparently enough of a fashion icon in-universe for her recognizable hair and glasses to be featured in her "Mode" business logo. In her opinion, supermodels are profoundly uninteresting subjects.
  • Of course, she's at odds with Ragyo as her motives to betray humanity are just one of many high-end supervillain motives.
  • When once asked whether working with superheroes was difficult, she replied..
    "Superheroes are easy, dahling. Mediocrity is much more difficult to work with — and it is in such great supply."
  • "No capes!"

  • Opposes: Brynhild, Ato-ko Shirogane
  • Annoys: The entire subhouse of Chefs And Establishments (Sally)
  • Special Relationship: Rick Blaine
  • There are some couples who met for the first time, knowing that they will be together for the rest of their lives. And then there's these two. Harry and Sally met in their college years and it took ten years just for them to become friends and a couple more after that to become loves. Even then, that relationship didn't last long. All in all, it took a long-winding adventure for the two to stick in the end. Despite all of that, it is considered one of the most enduring love stories in The Multiverse. For that, the House of Love decided to officially recognize the two by helping them ascend into the Pantheon.
  • As a crucial aspect of comedy, they were given dues from both the Ricardos and the Stephens for their story. Harry and Sally were amused that the patrons tended to be just as chaotic as they were (and still are).
  • It's clear that the two have plenty of fans in the House of Love, but there are a couple of people of note. They were highly valued by Sam and Diane, who also had to go through a rough and tumble relationship that included love. While the later weren't able to stick together, they wish the newest couple the best.
    • It is noted that their first meetup happened in a road trip. To their surprise, there was a temple dedicated to romances that started with a road trip. Peter and Ellie hoped that their first road trip would get them together. While that wasn't the case, the couple took credit for eventually getting the two hooked.
  • Given that the Pantheon has many people some may have thought to be fiction, Harry and Sally had a unique opportunity to settle a Seinfeldian Conversation. They both went to see Rick Blaine in order to ask if he truly wanted his former lover to leave on that plane. Rick merely stated that he didn't want her involved in the war, especially after he decided to abandon his neutrality. Unfortunately, he doesn't know where Ilsa is at the moment, so he can't answer truthfully whether she wanted to stay or not. Nevertheless, the couple noticed how much his film influenced their own.
  • Few couples have had to suffer as much as those two. Much of the blame was set on Brynhild, though the Valkyrie is sympathetic with their complaints. The two groups have agreed to move on from the kerfuffle.
  • Unlike Brynhild, Ato-ko Shirogane has no such qualms when it comes to breaking up potential couples. She is one of the biggest reasons many of their rank are kicked out of their temple. Hell, she nearly succeeded in derailing their relationship until they fixed their communication problems and got honest with each other.
  • Maeda Keiji recognized them as pretty good matchmakers... just not to each other. When they tried to find someone the other would like, the two matches ended up dating each other. Surprisingly, the two married and has been together ever since.
  • Sally once got Harry to go to the residence of Kaito Kirishima and Ichika Takatsuki. She thought that they could use some Intimate Healing in order to improve their relationship. Naturally, Harry was against this from the start, claiming it wasn't natural for males to want such healing. That won't stop Kaito from convincing him otherwise.
  • Exclusive to Harry:
    • Is quite popular in the House of Philosophy, much to Sally's disbelief. Many of his theories and phrases are used to this day. Of course that doesn't mean that he is right all the time. He could not have predicted that the two would fall in love with each other in the end.
    • Mike from Monster's Inc saw the perfect joke to plan on the couple. He impersonated Harry to trick Sally into letting him. That was when he planned to scare her. Unfortunately, she reacted by spraying pepper spray on his eye, causing him to go in spasms. When Harry found out about that... he decided to help the monster out by buying him a drink. Turns out they have the same voice.
  • Exclusive to Sally
    • What most people remember from her is not her romance with Harry, but her uncanny ability to fake orgasms. Sally insisted it was only to prove a point, but she has been asked to repeat the process various times. Even Kasuga, Goddess of The Immodest Orgasm came by for a demonstration.
    • May well be one of the most hated customers in the House of Food. Sally is notoriously picky with how different foods touch each other. Harry jokingly called her the "Berlin Wall of gourmets". Even worse, when a waitress complains about it she denies ever being that picky. As Harry claims, she is high maintenance that claims to be low maintenance. As such, only the most patient of chefs are able to tolerate her. If there is one bot of solace, people often say they'll "...have what she's having" for seemingly having so much pleasure with her food.

    Lennie Briscoe 
Leonard W. "Lennie" Briscoe, Divine Speaker of Evil Lawyer Jokes

  • Enemies: Manfred von Karma, All evil deities in the House of Crime, especially Jack the Ripper
  • Headbutting Heroes with: John Luther, Gene Hunt
  • The folks over at the world of Law & Order were one of the earliest entries into the Pantheon. Lennie and Jack Mc-Coy, together with Phoenix Wright helped make up the court system in the House of Justice. Despite their influence, their clergy did not have nearly as much influence as the Crusading Lawyer did. As the Pantheon grew, their presence continued their retreat until the two simply disappeared. Phoenix Wright hoped that he could bring them back someday. Years later he got his chance. Dr. Grissom and detective Caine both agreed to make their case for the man's return. When the Court of the Gods appeared nonplussed at bringing him back, Lennie made a Lawyer joke that sent the entire courtroom bursting with laughter. In fact, it was good enough for the House of Quirks to open up a spot for him in the Pantheon. Thus the detective was able to regain his divinity.
    • Calls Phoenix Wright "the only lawyer worth a damn." Despite his animosity towards defense attorneys, Briscoe knows that Wright only defends those who are truly innocent unless threatened. His attitude has changed somewhat with the addition of more good-aligned lawyers.
    • It was inevitable that he would butt heads with Manfred von Karma. What makes things more infuriating to him is that the Amoral Attorney is a prosecutor who would stop at nothing to send his defendant in jail, even if they were truly innocent. Lennie only has unkind words to someone who bends the law just to keep his perfect record.
    • Was met with Horatio Caine, a follower of his when Briscoe held the title for Quip to Black. Before the Miami man popularized the quirk, it was the New Yorker that started the trend for others to follow. Nevertheless, he felt that the redhead was a worthy successor for the title and thanked the fellow detective in bringing him back.
    • Judge Dredd did a good job hiding his pleasure in Briscoe's return. He felt Briscoe was one of his hardest working officers, seeing too it that criminals aren't just captured but also properly indicted, charged and sentenced.
    • Things were more rocky when he tried to work with John Luther. The detective has a tendency of using more questionable methods to get his man. This is especially difficult given how often villainous lawyers are able to throw out cases due to this. Lennie has always been a By-the-Book Cop and his coozy relationship with the lines of Rosco disturbs him, even if they make a pretty good team. There is speculation that the two may well be in the same universe since Luther knows about JOhn Munch. Neither detective is interested in delving deeper.
    • Is less cozy with the likes of Gene Hunt than he used to. In the beginning, they would have probably enjoyed exchanging jokes at the expense of Italians and Latinos. Briscoe has since moved away from such jokes.
  • It's obvious that Briscoe isn't liked in the House of Crime, but his show did have a big bit of influence on the genre. It doesn't matter what kind of crime he investigates, it always seemed to involve a dead body. This has annoyed Jack the Ripper over the decades with how often Briscoe's team manage to stumble upon the work of his followers, even unintentionally. It has become a bigger problem when other investigators followed suit.
  • Is never far away without his trusty revolver, even those those weapons have been out of service of the police force for decades. Coincidentally, there isn't a deity based on that sort of weapon. He hopes to find someone worthy of the name.
    • Captain Holt commended the detective for his tastes in weaponry. The two compare revolvers all the time in their coffee breaks.
  • Had a rather destructive bout of alcoholism that led to the death of a loved one. This convinced him to go to AA. In the Pantheon, those services are led by the Pluncketts. They may not be the most stable of families, but both are committed to help the detective get out of his funk for as long as it takes.
  • Unfortunately, his avatar died of cancer, and he would fall along with him. The Pantheon made a heartwarming tribute to his permanent stay. While he is sad to see his original show gone, he is satsfied with the longeviety of its original successor.

    You should always carry condoms for safety!
  • Panty's former high priestess, Shino apparently ascended after hearing about the pantheon. She later met her fellow goddess Ayame and the two quickly hit it off. As they both share the same sense of humor. Though occasionally she'll snark at her fellow goddess to fill in the gap that Tsuda and Tanukichi since they haven't ascended yet. While the latter tend to get creeped out with the former if she tries to playfully call her out on her experience with sexual things.
  • She is actually horrified after hearing about Ayame's world. She doesn't even know how Ayame could survive as she herself constantly blurt out perverted things. Of course she became an honorary member of SOX.
  • Shino has a habit of going to the house of quirks and announcing various rules in the pantheon most are rather perverted in nature though.
  • Shino is rather awkward around deer, as she was once molested by one but not the reasons one would think. However, some may think that she is secretly into that.
  • She doesn't like her average sized breasts and gets rather annoyed about. She is opposed by the League of Flat chests for this reason as they think she's a hypocrite.
    —Pantheon divine rule NUMBER TWO! NEVER TALK ABOUT BREASTS!
    The League Of Flat Chests: AT LEAST YOU HAVE BREASTS!!!'
    • Of course after this she hear that some gods sound similar to her. She first met Emilia and sigh in relief much to her irritation. Then met Houki, Rias, Maria Cadenza Eve, Mio, Stephanie Dola, Laura a post shinobi transformed Ryobi and immediately decided to occasionally snark at them.
    • She was once caught by her fellow goddess massaging her breasts much to their embarrassment
  • She is also worried about her large posterior.
  • She once was scouted to by Maria to be an Idol Singer. She later declined for various reasons. Actually, she later found out it was just a dream.
  • It's heavily implied that more often than not she goes commando. She tends to subtly hint at the fact this seems to be her default state of dress.
  • She like Mio doesn't like blood as she and Mio panicked at Yui's papercut.
  • She also befriended fellow Ace Student Council President Hinagiku as they both hate heights and has trouble confessing with their Love Interest.
  • She doesn't like bugs even the little ones and unfortunately most of the bugs in the pantheon are huge. She hated to reminded of the time she met Beelzebub (the fly not the baby). She had a rather large freak out over the whole thing and doesn't want to be reminded of the terrifying incident.
  • She managed to befriend the Sonozaki sisters. Thanks to their shared humor.
  • Surprisingly, she gets along with Jolyne Kujo. She first meet the Jojo after finding her in the dirty section of the house of knowledge. Shino would start a conversation about how the latter forgot her panties and she forget hers too. Which would lead to the birth of a beautiful friendship.

  • Meet the Sket Dan, a club in Tokyo's Kaimei High School created with the purpose of assisting anybody who needs help. Consisting of Yusuke "Bossun" Fujisaki, an overly sensitive boy with a slew of arguably useless talents, Hime "Himeko" Onizuka, a violent ex-delinquent, and Kazuyoshi "Switch" Usui, a voluntarily mute otaku who only speaks through his computer, things can get quite silly when they are around (especially since they know a lot of eccentric folks), silliness which belies their issues from the past that led them to form such an altruistic club in the first place. From giving advice or finding lost objects (that's what they do most days) to exposing public figures as frauds, one can count on them going the extra mile for someone who's feeling troubled.
  • One random day the capricious goddess Haruhi felt suddenly very interested in comedy. She noticed there was no representation for the Japanese genre of comedy called manzai and so decided to put on a contest to choose the representative. She roped the Council of Cloudcuckooland into this, with the idea that their strange logic would provide much fodder for retorts, and much entertainment for herself. The Council sent their strongest (no one's sure if they meant strangest) member Mako Mankanshoku, and among many contestants that included the fairies from Ni no Kuni, it was the Sket Dan that emerged victorious, as they were the only ones that weren't stunned stupid by Mako's Insane Troll Logic and kept the retorts coming. Thus they were awarded with godhood by a very entertained Haruhi, who expects they'll make the Pantheon even more interesting.
    Bossun: What a lame way to become a god!
  • Despite having their temple in the House of Theatre and Spectacle, they mostly spend their daytime hours at the Elysium Academy operating their club and helping out whoever has a request for them. But on Sundays and other free days, they operate from their assigned temple. They take on all sorts of customers, though non-students generally avoid bothering them if it's a school day.
  • The club had constantly been at odds with the student council in their school, since their objectives of supporting the student body tended to overlap, so there was a lot of competition between them. The trio were prepared to stand their ground when they met the student council president at the House of School. As it happens, Makoto Niijima turned out to be very accepting of the club after looking at their accomplishments, and thought they were just what the Academy needed as she is often too busy with the Phantom Thieves. She's particularly close to Bossun after hearing about his relationship with his brother Tsubaki, who was also student council president (and therefore one of Makoto's followers). Makoto can still get exasperated at them when she gets complaints about their antics, though.
  • Pretty much everyone they help ends up becoming their friend. The trio likely fall just a bit shy of Gentaro Kisaragi in sheer number of friends. In fact, the Kamen Rider often goes to them to ask for advice when a particular deity is being too stubborn about becoming his friend, or to share his concerns about someone else he feels is in trouble. They've also become close to the Kamen Rider Club as a result, especially as they are a group of very different people brought together by Gentaro's belief in them despite their flaws, not unlike how Himeko and Switch relate to Bossun. The trio think it's awesome that they're trusted so much by a Kamen Rider, though they still play the straight man when Gentaro is having his dumber moments.
  • One time they participated in their school's music festival; originally each of the trio was going to form their own bands, but they fell apart due to certain events and instead the trio came together under the name Sketchbook, and proceeded to put all their heart and soul into their performance to convince a classmate of theirs to pursue her dream of becoming a violinist. This story caught the interest of Houkago Tea Time of the light music school club, who think they should do it again whenever the House of School decides to put on such an event. In the meantime, the two clubs tend to visit each other in their school rooms to hang out and laze around.
  • They've had adventures involving Gintoki Sakata and the rest of the Yorozuya accidentaly coming to their universe, where they proceeded to irritate each other with their similar yet also different (the Sket Dan are more family friendly, the Yorozuya trade in more adult and gross jokes) senses of humor. The Sket Dan were also shocked to discover Gin-san shared his voice with Switch; the two call each other Sugita-san as a joke. When the Sket Dan went to Yorozuya's world, they competed to see who were the better odd jobbers (since that's what the Sket Dan is from a certain point of view). That competition ended in a tie, with each side promising they wouldn't lose next time. In the Pantheon this translated to the two groups competing to see who completes the most requests.
  • Trying to get Hachiman Hikigaya to join their club since he was part of the very similar Service Club in his universe. Being an Ineffectual Loner, Hachiman is ostensible about not wanting to get involved, but his conscience often drives him to work with the trio anyway, though he can get quickly annoyed at their antics.
  • Since their club opened in the Pantheon, they kept hearing from their schoolmates about how the coolest, most respected guy around is Ferris Bueller. This caused Bossun to daydream about how good for their image it'd be if Ferris were to ever rely on them, while Himeko's impression was that he must be really arrogant. So when Ferris visited the club to size up he new kids, Bossun acted a bit too obsequious, with Himeko retorting at every one of his actions as he was practically treating Ferris like a king. Ferris caught on fast though, and assured the Sket Dan that he was at their service, since he thought their goal as a club to help everyone to be a really cool one and he'd use his considerable influence in the academy to support them. In the end all the Sket Dan came to think favorably of Ferris. Bossun still grovels a lot around him, unfortunately.
  • One of their regular clients in their world was the geography teacher Yamanobe, who kept requesting to help him get some incredibly obscure sport or game to be better known. Hearing of this, Calvin went to them to help him set up a calvinball club in school. The Sket Dan was as bewildered at the sport as any of Yamanobe's, but eventually, somehow got the hang of it and they sometimes hold demonstrations to get people interested. No one's really stepped up to form a club with Calvin yet.
    • As a joke, Switch has also passed a copy of Yamanobe's video game Special Mariko Broken on to AVGN and requested that he make a review of it (LOL). AVGN ended up inviting Switch to his temple to guest-star in the episode. They wound up becoming friends as Switch is also quite a connoisseur of horrible video games, and he's promised to share any others he might find with the Nerd.
  • The Sket Dan are not normally the sort to have mortal enemies, but unfortunately the Trollkaiger seem intent on doing them harm since the club has great potential as a source of hope due to their goal. The Trollkaiger cannot tolerate this and are determined to eradicate them, forcing the trio to make use of their faculties to the maximum to escape them. It's in these occasions that Bossun's marksmanship and Himeko's skill with a hockey stick come out, at least long enough for Switch to contact more powerful help.
  • When Bossun turned 15, he discovered that he was actually adopted by who he thought was his mother, who claimed his father had run off. In truth, both his parents died the day he was born, his father having sacrificed himself to save a child from an incoming car, as he'd always had a strong impulse to help people. Bossun inherited this trait of his father's, and although he was in denial about it at first, he would end up devoting his life to help others as well. That was the day he decided to form the Sket Dan.
    • On top of that, he also had a twin brother, something he only found out on his 17th birthday (as his mother didn't know either, long story). That twin brother was Sasuke Tsubaki, the then vice president of the student council that Bossun always butted heads and couldn't get along with. Despite their initial claims that they could never see each other as brothers, as time went on they made a serious effort to have a good relationship, even as their rivalry at school continued. Such an amazing story of long lost brothers drew the interest of Koichi Kimura, who also didn't realize he had a twin brother until he met him in the digital world through a twist of fate. Bossun for his part had an indescribable feeling at the story of how they at first fought and then complemented each other as the warriors of light and darkness. In a way, he thinks he too is the darkness to Tsubaki's light.
  • Himeko used to be a delinquent known as Onihime (Ogre Princess) who was widely feared for being capable of beating up whole gangs by herself using only a hockey stick. Her classmates kept away from her because of this, so she moved to another city when she entered high school and resolved to not be friends with anyone for fear they'd discover her reputation. Then she met Bossun, who made her realize how contradictory she was being and got her to admit that she did want to be accepted and have friends. So Bossun, not minding her past, drafted her to join his club (then still in the planning stages) as he needed someone with her strength.
  • Himeko often goes into the House of Food to taste the next extremely strange flavor of Pelollipop, or Pelocan. The wide variety of flavors available has drawn comparisons to Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, but at least with Pelocan you always know what you're getting, be it blue cheese or Century Egg. Much like the Beans, it's become a popular party game among the deities to test one's endurance through eating Pelocan. The trio once went through a whole box of the Beans and Himeko was the only one to not tap out, and perhaps unsurprisingly she even enjoys them, though she still prefers Pelocan for the aesthetic. Bossun also uses Pelocan as ammo as the disgusting flavors put most enemies out of commission.
  • The club has the full approval of Great Teacher Onizuka since its members have proven several times over just how far they'll go to help someone, much like Onizuka does for his students. Aside from that, Onizuka shares a particular bond with Himeko due to their pasts as delinquents before turning a new leaf, and since Himeko decided to become a teacher, Onizuka has expressed interest in mentoring her. The fact that they share the same family name is cause for much suspicion among deities (including Bossun and Switch), given their many similarities.
  • While on the topic of shared names, Himeko is known to become weirdly excited if two people with the same name are in the same room, and since entering the Pantheon that has extended to deities sharing the same voice. She always tries to get such deities to say hello to each other, to which they tend to react with confusion at such misplaced enthusiasm. Rumor has it Himeko was the one who started the practice of keeping tabs on shared names and voices. Bossun isn't surprised at all at the rumor, considering it to be the exact kind of thing someone crazy like Himeko would do (that comment earned him a megaton slap from her, as usual).
  • Switch has not always been a computer, anime and idol geek with a constant frown on his face and under a vow of silence. He used to be, in all respects, an average guy who felt jealous of his brilliant younger brother, Masafumi. Masafumi died from a knife wound he got from saving the brothers' childhood friend from a crazed stalker who had feelings for him. Switch felt responsible for his brother's death since it was an offhand comment of his that led to the stalker locating Masafumi. In his grief, Switch started dressing like Masafumi and became a shut-in. From there he started a vigilante website against bullies, until he met Bossun and Himeko, who stopped him and convinced him to put his skills to better use by helping people.
  • Being very good with computers, Switch often gets requests from the White Hats to help them out in some way. His frequent trips there have gotten him acquainted with several regulars there, and he was shocked to discover that the Digidestined Ken Ichijouji has a practically similar backstory to him; he also felt jealous of his prodigy brother and felt responsible for his untimely death, succumbing to darkness because of it. And like Switch, he was pulled out of that place thanks to his future friends giving him a reality check. The two boys have become friends over their similarities, especially as each reminds the other of his dead brother.
  • Switch did eventually set his computer aside and start speaking with his own voice again. However he's aware that the "computer voice" is part of his image, so he still uses a computer to speak with other deities most of the time. He doesn't do it if he's only with Bossun and Himeko. He naturally feels sympathy for those who've elected to remain mute in response to trauma in their lives.
  • Switch detests all yanderes, as Masafumi's fate was due to one who had become interested in him. Hearing there's an entire association of such people over at the GUAC really ticked him off and he's determined to undermine their operations as much as he can. He doesn't automatically side with all their victims though; he considers Makoto Itou to be a fool and utterly reprehensible for toying with women the way he did. Bossun, for his part, would still accept helping them as long as they had a legitimate problem, and Switch defers to Bossun in those occasions.
  • Switch kept files on all the student body back in Kaimei, which freaked people out with how detailed his knowledge about others could get. He's currently expanding his database to include every single deity in the Pantheon, and at some point he'll probably start including Heralds, High Priests and Followers as well. While disturbing to deities who like their privacy, it's certainly useful for the Sket Dan to get the background on who they're trying to help.
  • Switch has always been dismissive of the existence of the occult as impossible. Since their universe is mostly mundane, he always managed to prove his belief correct, but since entering the Pantheon he has had to come to terms with magic and things not explainable by science being indeed possible. He still staunchly believes science is superior, though, and he's always happy to expose false supernatural phenomena. Due to his beliefs he's often at odds with one of the heads of the House of School, the magic teacher Professor Snape, with them making snippy remarks at each other's preferred area whenever they chance to meet. Snape has a distaste for the whole Sket trio as he considers them undisciplined and crude, but it's more personal with Switch.

    Tsubame Kamoi 
Tsubame Kamoi, Goddess of Comedic Lolicons
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tsubame_kamoi.png
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Her rose-pattern eyepatch
  • Theme Song: Tokimeki☆Climax
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Unhealthy Obsession for Little Girls Played for Comedy, Meido, Actually Good at Her Job, Really Ripped, Doesn't Really Realize Why Her Behaviour Is Bad, Goes into Too Much Details, Sometimes Accompanied by "Psycho" Strings
  • Domains: Lolicons, Maids, Cooking, Sewing, Military
  • Allies: Quetzalcoalt (as Lucoa), Edward Teach
  • Enemies: Champ
  • Opposed by: Chris Hansen, Dokuro Mitsukai, Rom and Ram
  • Tsubame is an ex-JSDF pilot who after leaving the special forces took the job of being a maid to the half-Russian girl Misha after her mother's death. The problem being that she is a hardcore lolicon, being obsessed with cute girls, especially towards "Milady", who she wants to dress up, observe and even maybe marry in the future when she gets close to her. A lot of antics ensue.
  • Upon getting into the Pantheon, she was "dragged aside" by Chris Hansen. He knew that a day like would come someday. What he didn't know was how absolutely oblivious Tsubame is towards her action. She really doesn't realize how creepy her actions are unless someone points individual ones at her (and even that might not help). Heck, she herself hates child predators, when she herself can be considered one. It got to the point that Hansen wanted to just give up and ban her from the Pantheon if it wasn't for the fact that much more depraved individuals were already here.
  • Due to potential Aesop Amnesia she could suffer due to her position, it was eventually decided that she should at the very least follow some guidelines:
    • 1.Do not lay your hands on little girls. This could apply to anyone underage, but she has said in the past that she has no interest on girls who have started menstruating, so it is a moot point.
    • 2. If you were to interact with young girls, she must do it under heavy supervision.
    • 3. No catfishing online. She may use young-looking avatars when playing games, but she cannot pretend she is actually young.
    • 4. No disguises. Most do admit that her "clever disguises" aren't really that great, but she can disguise herself rather well if she wants to.
    • 5. If she sees any pedophiles herself, she must report them immediately. This is kind of community service to her (alongside fixing doors).
    • 6. More of a courtesy thing, but she really should keep her fantasies to herself rather than spout them out.
  • She generally appears ditzy, but she has her serious side. When she was transferred to train guard dogs, she immediately caught their obedience due to her demanding aura. Nowadays she hardly shows that side. One of people who have caused her to become serious is Ryouna due to her reminding her of her former first lieutenant Ukai (mainly her masochism and Delusions of Doghood).
  • Is really good at sewing clothing for girls due of knowing what makes girls cute to her. She makes doll clothing as her main source of income to support her main job. Unfortunately she can't really approach Suigintou, Suiseiseki or Souseiseki. She once tried few things with Medicine Melancholy and got severely poisoned for touching her. Though that just made her think her as an unapproachable flower she can only observe from afar.
  • The reason why she joined the special forces in the first place was because after her military dad died, her mother told her that her father was in the skies now, making her want to become a pilot to hopefully meet him again. Of course that never happened, something which she did come to terms with, and eventually had to leave the special forces due to an eye disease. Pharah can relate to her since she wanted to follow her mother's footsteps in terms of joining the army (though it was before Ana "died").
    • Speaking about her dad, she thinks that the reason why she likes cute things so much is because she never had that many girly things or hobbies when she was young due of her dad. She doesn't really use it as a proper Freudian Excuse, though.
  • Is sort of a Guest-Star Party Member to Seven Servants due of her wanting to improve her skills as a maid, even if her skills are already really good, especially inn terms of cooking. There are rumours that the reason why she got approved is because some third party is blackmailing Sakuya with discriminating photos in regards to her feelings towards her two mistresses.
  • Miu Matsuoko has been using her to get free access to new cute clothing, as much as she dislikes interacting with her. Tsubame hasn't yet realize that she is being used.
  • Is just absolutely disgusted with Champ due of his raping and killing children. Even hearing his angel comparison with children does not spark her fairy comparison when it comes to girls. She simply wants the clown dead.
  • Dokuro is trying her best for her not to find out about the future where Sakura created a device that could halt women from aging past age 12. Dokuro has tried to kill Tsubame before, but has found her surprisingly hard to kill due of her army training. Dokuro is also joined by Rom and Ram who themselves have problems with lolicons.
  • Has particular interest with Illyasviel since she reminds her of Misha, and she is sort of curious if homunculi menstruate. That being said, she hasn't really tried anything when it comes to Illya, since she feels like she would be cheating on Milady. That, and there is the deal with Heracles being her bodyguard (who sort of reminds Tsubame of Misha's MMO avatar).
  • Seems to be trading notes with Lucoa in terms of how to get close to their significant ones (because who else will?). Tsubame finds Lucoa's methods bold, but she herself prefers more "subtle" methods. No words on what she thinks about how Lucoa operates in maid cafe.
  • On the internet she has come across someone who also has appreciation for cute girls like her and frequently chats with her. The person is none other than Edward Teach. She hasn't yet figured out that he's the legendary pirate Blackbeard himself and Teach realizes that Tsubame probably wouldn't react well if she found out who he was.
  • Has found herself to be "harassed" by Hammond for some reason. Maybe Misha's hamsters has talked to him about Tsubame's antics?
