Pantheon / Killers & Assassins

Go To

Of all the Crime sub-houses, this may be the most illegal and dangerous. Here lies those known for murder, whether it be the rogue actions of a deranged madman or the high-pay professional assassinations. Similar to Methods of Killing, but a lot more professional. Also similar to Hunters, but more focused on the general art of killing than specific targets or techniques. The House of Heroes has a low opinion on it as most there have a Thou Shalt Not Kill mentality, but surprisingly enough over half the killers here are principled and have standards, even the nastier ones. Of course there are psychos like the Brave Companions, but they aren't well-liked by their fellow gods here either.

The House of Killers & Assassins is a flat for the gods there to rest and prepare for their latest hit. They're willing to hire themselves out at their own individual prices, though it varies on the individual (along with who they will and won't go after), who's hiring them, and because of the Death Is Cheap nature of the Pantheon, putting a hit on other gods instead of mortals will cost more depending on how long they want the target to stay dead. The Black Organization, being an especially large group, operates from a secret headquarters connected to the flat...somewhere.

Other serial killers and hitmen are allowed to stay over, but the rent isn't cheap.

  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His Skull or His Sword, Azrael
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: The Strongest and Oldest Assassin, Able to Kill Anything, Brilliant, but Lazy, Chopping Heads Off, Reasonable Authority Figure, Religious Bruiser, Sink-or-Swim Mentor
  • Domain: Death, Power, Leadership
  • Herald: Cursed Arm Hassan, The Hundred Faced Hassan, Hassan of Serenity
  • Allies: Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Skull Knight, Night Raid
  • Enemies: Ra's al Ghul, Ainz Ooal Gown, Evil "Heathen" Gods, Canopus and Admins, Shiro Tagachi, Malthael, Yaldabaoth
  • Worthy Opponent: Alucard (Hellsing), Odin (FF)
  • The Hashshashin, a group that codified and named the assassin concept. While they weren't the first assassins ever, their skills were well known. Always lead by an assassin named "Hassan-I-Sabbah", they would assassinate those they deem deserve it.
  • The Hashshashin to ascend for the title is the first, the Old Man of the Mountain. He is a complete mystery as there's nearly zero info on his past. Rumors have been going around that he may be Azrael, the angel of death. True or not, there is something unnatural about him as he still lives despite there having been seventeen other Hashshashin who succeeded him.
  • Is perplexed of some misconceptions about his Assassins. For one, he doesn't know where people got the idea that they and Knight Templars were enemies. In fact, the two groups were allies against common foes. He also doesn't take too kindly that many see his Guild as nothing but cold-hearted killers. He personally cut down those who had fallen into evil.
  • King Hassan's affinity for assassination is so great that he has domain over death. In that even a single swing from his sword has the possibility to kill someone. And if that person is immune to death, say immortality, he can impose the concept of death onto them so they can be killed.
  • Has become enemies with Ra's al Ghul and his League of Assassins. While most of the conflict of the two mainly centers on opposing ideology, the fact that the two are opposite spectrum of death, Ra's is afraid of it while Hassan can cause it, is also the reason for the animosity.
  • There are some in the Pantheon who are either intrigued or wary of his Death Powers. Malthael while interested in the Hassan's powers, feels like a corrupted being shouldn't wield such power. Ainz Ooal Gown fears that he could impose the concept of death on him when he was otherwise immune to it. The same goes for Canopus and the Admins who fear their immortality would be threatened. However, Fujiwara no Mokou is one of the few one who is happy about it since that means she could be killed for good. Alucard meanwhile was thrilled at facing a opponent with such tremendous power.
  • Doesn't really see any of his successors as being worthy of the title of "Hassan". In fact, he has stated that he would gladly chop off their heads to relieve them of their duties. It's unknown whether he was joking or not.
    • However, whenever he's about to chop heads off, he has enough decency to command his victim to bring him their heads first.
  • Once clashed swords with the Esper Odin. The two Death deities complimented each other's swordsmanship and their ability to cause death. The two have battled many times afterwards to test the other's strength.
  • As a man of faith, Hassan doesn't care for the Heathen Gods that are in here. While he can tolerate most, he draws the line at the more evil or corrupt Gods.
    • Speaking of Gods, he has a very dim view over YHVH and his tyrannical approach to spreading his so call Law to the the masses. He also dislikes Yaldabaoth for not only being a false God but representing the Holy Grail which Hassan believes doesn't exist
  • Approves of the actions of Night Raid as they fight a corrupt empire. It reminds him of his own past fighting against invaders of his land and people. He’s also shown interest in their skills as assassins and has been observing them for awhile.
  • Many have remarked on the similarities between both King Hassan and Skull Knight. Not just from their appearance but their personal morals. The two skull warriors did meet and they have shown each other respect for what they do.

Intermediate Gods

    Gunvolt 
Oversurge! Azure Striker!

Gunvolt, God of Compassionate Hitmen (real name: unknown, The Azure Striker, GV, Geeves)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gunvolt_asg2.png
  • Intermediate God. Briefly a borderline Greater God with Mytyl's Anthem.
  • Symbol: His gun, Dart Leader, alongside a white feather.
  • Theme Song: Lightning Unleashed, Opening Stage (Gunvolt), Vs Gunvolt, Indigo Destiny (Duet version)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good

Moves, Leaving Joule to live a normal life without him
  • Domains: Terrorism (formerly), Mercenary Work, Dragon Motifs, Psychics, Electricity, Darts
  • Herald: Quinn Sakurazaki
  • High Priest: X9
  • Followers: Pasha the Peddler, Jaffar, Shelly de Killer, Richter Berg
  • Allies: Blade, Cole MacGrath, X, Zero, Axl, Isaac, Shovel Knight, Quote and Curly Brace, Blanka, Hyde Kido, Ludwig van Beethoven, Tenri Ayukawa, Raiden, Tien Shinhan
  • Rival: Copen
  • Enemies: Zonda and the Seven, The Sumeragi Swordsmen, The Corpus, Erik Lensherr/Magneto, William Stryker, Gigabolt Man-O-War, Aurum, The Brave Companions, Jack the Ripper, Senator Armstrong, Mistral, Monsoon, Sundowner, Larxene
  • Sympathizes with: The Falcons, Mao, Almaz Von Almandine Adamant
  • Though the Sumeragi Group's hold on their island nation is ironclad and their security is tight, regular people and Adepts alike learn to beware the Azure Striker. Lightning won't stop at striking just twice, after all. Having forgotten his real name in the time where he was experimented on, this freelance mercenary and former terrorist in the not so distant future goes by the name Gunvolt. Though his line of work is harsh and his exterior is usually straight and serious, he's a lot more empathetic in reality. GV's sense of right from wrong are as firm as his resolve. His Establishing Character Moment is choosing to disobey Asimov and leaving QUILL to spare a young Adept girl named Joule after seeing her hooked up to a machine instead of killing her, showing the same kindness his father-figure did for him. Moments like these are only the tip of the iceberg for GV. Despite his job, he still feels remorse and is even willing to try and talk down some of his foes from fighting him. It never works, though.
  • Was initially helping out Quinn around her Big Fancy House when they noticed the scenery around her home starting to warp and change. Thinking it's the work of a Septima, he told Quinn to take cover while he geared up to deal with the situation before being met with neighboring deities who cleared things up for him and Quinn. GV got adjusted to it pretty quickly all things considered, as he's no stranger to these sorts of things. After learning Zonda and the Seven are at large, he wasted no time to intercept them with some help from other gods. Sure enough, he surprised them when he decided to bust an operation to steal technology at a Corpus base headed by the Full Metal Jacket, Gibril. The authorities had to step in and break up the fight, though not before this exchange took place.
    Gibril: "G-Gunvolt! So you're here too... well, I was hoping to run into again. I realized something about my feelings... for you!"
    Gunvolt: "Your feelings, huh?"
    Gibril: "Y-Yeah!... So, you already know about it, then?"
    Gunvolt: "You could say that."
    Gibril: "Then talking is pointless! We must have something! So let's clash once more! You'll scorch me with your voltage while I hack away in return... Let us trade intoxicating amounts of pain, Gunvolt!"
    • Though the Corpus were lucky that Eden didn't take their tech to use against them in future attacks, they didn't appreciate GV trashing it to stop the two from using it in the future. As far as GV is considered, they're not a different cloth from the Sumeragi Group. Though at least Sumeragi bothered to appear benevolent. Most Corpus don't.
  • It didn't take long for him to find allies in the Pantheon. Due to the aforementioned experience with crossovers, he's met a few deities already. GV remembers Isaac, Quote, Curly Brace, Shantae, and Shovel Knight, either fighting with or against them depending on the situation being referred to. GV decided to congratulate Shovel Knight for making it onto Smash Bros, even if it's through as an Assist Trophy, as its a big honor regardless. This also led to an awkward conversation about Shantae also being in Smash when GV asked. She is, in Spirit. Thanks to Galeem and Dharkon vaporizing her.
    Gunvolt: (Yikes.)
  • GV wields the Azure Striker Septima, the first recorded in history and one of the most powerful. It allows him to manipulation over electrons, basically granting him the ability to generate and manipulate all forms of electricity. GV can electrify things via tagging enemies with needles of his hair darts fired from his Dart Leader, but this is only the tip of the iceberg. Projecting barriers with Flashfield & slow his descent, dodging by briefly turning his body into electrons aka Prevasion, calling down lightning, creating giant swords and chains, inducing Status Buffs on himself, healing through accelerating his natural regeneration, dashing at incredible speeds, jumping and dashing mid-air, and even hacking to an extent.
    • The downside to all this is that GV's basic abilities which include Flashfield, Prevasion, Air and jumping dashing run on an EP Meter (Electro Psycho Meter as he calls it) and if pressed too far is that he can overheat. Though GV is capable of instantly refilling his EP given time to compose himself if he hasn't overheated, though even then he has things to cover this. There's also his weakness to magnetism and water. This isn't to say that type advantage would be an instant win condition, however. GV has faced Adepts with control over such elements before, even a Badass Normal that could shut down his Septima. Yet he has prevailed over all of them, multiple times.
    • Heard of a Psycho Electro originating from South America and assumed they were the first Azure Striker user that Asimov talked about. GV went to the House of Combat to check it out and found who he was looking for in Blanka, though he wasn't what GV was expecting. For one, he wasn't an Adept, but rather a Wild Man empowered by electric eels, somehow. Despite his brutish appearance, GV found him a good guy to be around.
    • No, don't ask him to use his powers to help save on your electricity bills. That's just stingy.
  • The world GV came from was wracked with conflict between the regular humans and the Adepts and he has bore witness to both extremes. He sincerely believes that they can coexist, something that's a bit of an unpopular opinion. In the Pantheon, the tension isn't quite as severe despite the many Fantastic Racists running around with deities like Magneto and William Stryker hold beliefs that wouldn't be too out of place back home.
  • Frequents the House of Food for not only groceries but to also polish up on his cooking. GV's fairly skilled at it as it gained some level of notoriety back at QUILL, something he thinks can't be said for his other life skills. One visit had him run into Hyde Kido, who was happy to trade notes to aid each other's craft in addition to some of their exploits. GV can relate to Hyde's Innocent Cohabitation with Linne, Waldstein and later Vatista given that he also let Joule live with him before Quinn showed the same kindness by letting him stay with her.
    Hyde: "So your darts are basically needles from your hair?"
    Gunvolt: "More or less, yes. With conductive metal casing."
    Hyde: "Hair darts, hair needles... kinda like splinters or something, hair splinters..."
    Gunvolt: "I'd appreciate it if you stop giving my 'Tags' such lame names."
  • Though GV has a place in the House of Crime he prefers living in the House of Personality due to how homier the atmosphere is, even if he does concede to the fact that he is a killer. As such he keeps his visits to the Killers & Assassins House limited especially when it comes to the likes of the ever-so infamous Jack the Ripper. And especially with the band of mercenaries known as Brave Companions are utter monsters whose depravity are only driven by the fact that they just could. Though GV still stands by the idea that humans aren't inherently evil like what Tenjian or the rest of the Seven say they are, he thinks that they have a point when it comes to people like them.
  • Due to sharing the same creators, GV's been compared to the likes of Zero, X, and Axl. A 2D Run-and-Gun protagonist with a cold exterior but compassionate interior clad in blue who is notable for their use of a Handgun. Basically sharing traits with all three of them, with Zero being the primary inspiration. Meanwhile, his electrical powers and conflicts involving Differently Powered Individuals in his world have also earned some comparisons with Cole MacGrath. GV's gotten along with all of them, respecting their actions throughout, and is willing to give them a hand when the need arises.
    • His help came sooner than expected when he heard one of the Maverick Hunter's enemies wreaking havoc on an urban-looking area in the Pantheon. After chasing them down into the outskirts it turned out to be Gigabolt Man-o-War, who was trying to drain the power supply for himself. The ensuing battle turned out to be a Mutual Disadvantage due to both parties' immunity and empowerment through electricity leading both GV and Gigabolt to use other options. This didn't last however as GV eventually got the chance to cleave through Gigabolt with Luxcalibur.
    Gunvolt: "Oversurge! Azure Striker! Send this drifting fool careening into the abyss below!"
  • Having gone through the revelation that his father figure and personal hero Asimov was actually a genocidal maniac, he can definitely understand where Mao and Almaz are coming from when it came to Aurum. He also can relate to Ludwig since he went through this with multiple people throughout his life, even managing to criticize them. And on the topic of former father figures, GV also thinks vengeance isn't anything fulfilling in the end. While there's no doubt about how justified he was in killing Asimov (especially since he shot him and Joule), it did not help make him feel better at all. In fact, it (combined with the fact she's Sharing a Body with him as a sort of Septimal ghost) contributed him going into a depressed and callous slump for a while before getting back on his feet after helping Quinn. And even then, he still had nightmares about Joule being shot.
    • He did eventually get over it after a lengthy chain of events involving Zonda's machinations end with Joule becoming a normal human with no memory of her past. Seeing as she's in the kind of life he wanted Joule to have ever since he met her, GV decides to leave her be. Tenri Ayukawa found the situation not too different from her own when it came to Keima Katsuragi and expressed her empathy for him because of it.
  • There is a rumor going around that originally GV would have had turned evil and for whatever reason took control of the Sumeragi Group. In addition, GV would've used not one, not two, but a thousand Glaives to transform when fighting. Plus, he wore a mask. Being utterly confused by the whole thing, he decides to just shrug off this information. At the very least, he'll make it a point to stay away from those wanting to tempt him to evil.
    • The reality does bear some similarities. GV has indeed fought an evil masked doppelganger created. And while its not through Glaives, he did get empowered by Mytyl's Anthem as one of the True Final Bosses. With this overwhelming power he gains not only unlimited Prevasion but can also spam more complex versions of his Special Skills especially in some frustrating cases. In short, he deals damage like a highway full of runaway freight trains but without exploiting his weaknesses his Prevasion practically makes him invincible.
  • When undergoing missions in addition to the Dart Leader and its various clips for tagging objects and/or enemies he also wears special pendants, rings, and contacts to enhance his Septimal Powers. Defense, offense, Kudos & money gain, reduced cost for EP or Skills, etc. GV takes them off when not on duty though he still wears glasses due to his poor eyesight such as when he goes. Speaking of, him putting on glasses and ditching his signature duds is how he was able to hide his identity, basically Clark Kenting. Since everyone is aware of his identity as an Adept and most don't really mind it the disguise is more for times where he can relax.
  • GV became fast allies towards the cyborg Raiden. The mercenary not only shares lightning motifs but was also once a Child Soldier working for his mentor Solidus Snake before he betrayed him. Of course, Solidus was abusive on top of that, but the similarities remain. The resulting connection also has GV becoming enemies with the entirety of the Desperado LLC and Senator Armstrong for the countless atrocities they committed along with their goals of launching the world into conflict.
  • There’s recently been sightings of him wearing the Sumeragi emblem on his back. At the moment, Gunvolt has yet to offer any explanations for this but many have taken it as a sign that he’s getting involved with something big some time in the near future.
  • "Don't be willing to throw your life away so easily! If you wish to be free, I'll do what I can to make that happen."

  • Domain: Death, Terror, Fear
  • Allies: Joker, Carnage, Dio Brando, Yoshikage Kira, Hansel and Gretel, Springtrap, Johan Liebert, SCP-542
  • Enemies: The House of Justice, Raiden, Bruce Wayne, Jonathan Joestar, Robert E. O. Speedwagon, William A. Zeppeli, Maka Albarn, Soul Eater Evans, Sebastian Michaelis, Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, Lois Lane, Basil & Dawson, Mordred, Karna, Achilles, Atalanta, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Shay Patrick Cormac
  • Abhorrent Admirer towards: All Equestrian Deities
  • Rival: Hannibal Lecter
  • Opposes: Freddy Krueger
  • The first and most infamous Serial Killer known to the world, Jack the Ripper brought fear to the heart of London. He plagued its streets and the district of Whitechapel, brutally murdering at least five prostitutes in four terrible nights. While he was never caught, his actions left a mark on the entire world.
  • Because he was never caught, his identity is a complete mystery. Because of this, his appearance is in influx. One moment he can be a man in a black cape and top hat or even a small girl who represents the dead poor children of London. Hell, he can even be a zombie vampire. Under certain circumstances, Jack the Ripper might be actually more than a single person. Particularly, when summoned to the Snowfield Holy Grail War as the False Berserker, he showed the possibility he was actually a demon. He himself has no more idea of who he truly might be, identifying completely with the legend of the first serial killer.
    • Might even be the Loch Ness Monster. What?
  • As mention before, Jack can change his form. This has its benefits, and disadvantages because each version comes with their own powers and weakness. For example, as his JoJo version, he has the strengths and weaknesses of a vampire zombie and can launch knives out of his body. His Fate versions can emit mist that can conceal her presence and make it easier to assassinate people or assume multiple identities to confuse his victims, transform into a colossal demon... or generate hundreds of demon bodies to attack with.
    • Jack can even transform into Grell Sutcliff who was one half of Jack the Ripper with Angelina Durless as they killed prostitutes for getting abortions.
  • Seen as a rival towards Hannibal Lecter. It's not just a rivalry between serial killers, but also as rappers. Jack is still mad that he lost to him.
  • May actually be Lord Blackwood. Because of this, both Sherlock and Dr. Watson are keeping a careful eye on him.
  • Many members of the House of Justice are trying to bring Jack in for his unpunished crimes.
    • Jack on the flip side doesn't like that Raiden has taken his moniker of "Jack the Ripper" and wants to show him who is truly The Ripper here.
  • Might be a brony. The Equestrian deities don't really like that. Especially when they found out what he did to a horse back in the JoJo world.
  • His female form can be seen hanging around with Hensel and Gretel. All three found comfort over the fact they had bad lives that turn them into killers. Many hope that their relationship is only platonic and not sexual.
  • Still hasn't forgotten the time Jonathan Joestar use his Ripple to destroy his head.
    • Jack has also allied with many other killers like Cletus Kasady (who would of been Jack the Ripper in an Alternate Universe), The Joker and Johan Liebert. He doesn't care about Freddy Krueger that much, since he uses his crimes for his nightmares.
  • During one confrontation, he was eaten by Madame Vastra.
  • Shockingly, or perhaps unsurprisingly, Jack has revealed that he is a former member of the Assassin's Brotherhood and his killings were not all completely random. His mother, a former assassin herself, was brutally murdered in front of him when he was young and it shattered his mind. He believes that the Brotherhood has grown soft and seeks to show the world why the Brotherhood are what they are with fear. This doesn't sit well with either Ezio Auditore or Shay Cormac, especially Shay who clams that is just another assassin who doesn't deserve to exist. Jack's response? "Ello Pot. The name's Kettle."
  • Jack has noticed that at one point, his female form managed to enthrall the Greek heroine Atalanta and turned her into a raging madwoman that wanted to kill a holy woman like Jeanne d'Arc. When the dust was cleared, even Jack was amused and after Atalanta's ascension, he tried to goad her into that rage again. Unfortunately for him, that failed.

  • Rivals: Samuel Rodrigues, Samurai Jack
  • Enemies: The Corpus, Megatron, Wyald, Speed O' Sound Sonic, bad bosses in general
  • Unnerved by: Master Roshi
  • Complicated Relationship: House of Demons
  • Lo Wang was one of Orochi Zilla's most dangerous assassins and bodyguards. When his order to purchase a piece of the Nobitsura Kage from a sword collector went wrong, Zilla helped the Demon God Enra invade earth to retrive the pieces of the sword in exchange for curing his failing body. When Wang found out about this, his boss turns on him and has him hunted down for the remainder of the game and the next one.
  • Is good friends with Duke Nukem ever since their debut and was actually introduced to the Pantheon by Duke himself when Duke introduced the ninja to the Gates of the Pantheon. The both of them are trying to get Caleb to join in order to reunite the trio.
  • Due to his experience with his former boss Zilla, Wang became enemies with the Corpus, who are also an evil Mega-Corp with a heavy futuristic theme and combat robots.
  • Loves lots of western media including Transformers and western rock, even frequently listening to The Touch when he rides his Cool Car. As such, he manages to be good friends with Optimus Prime, even if Optimus thinks hes a bit too trigger happy and Wang helps him in the fight against Megatron and his Decepticons.
  • Gets along well surprisingly with Shinobu Oomiya due to their shared interest in western culture. While she was scared of him at first, they became good friends with common interests and like to Watch western movies together in the House of Theater.
  • Managed to also become good friends with Beavis and Butthead, who constantly laugh at his Wang jokes. Wang also managed to learn new joke ideas from the duo.
    • Earned the ire of Speed o' Sound Sonic and Wyald for his liberal use of penis jokes in spite of the two getting severe "wang" injures.
  • Holds a rivalry with Samuel Rodrigues as he wants to have the position of the God of Katanas. He occasionally fought him for the title, but hasnt won and eventually decided to keep his own title.
    • Also managed to be rivals from another Samurai named Jack. Jack thought that while Wang has some good intentions, he is very brutal and a major asshole at times. They occasionally get at each other due to opposing philosophies.
  • Has a complicated relationship with the House of Demons. While he has slain many evil demon Mooks and Elite Mooks, he is on good terms with the more noble and heroic demons. Sometimes he is helped by the Skull Knight or the Doomguy when he hunts demons.
  • Feels weirded out by Master Roshi since he reminds himself of his original incarnation who was an extremely perverted old man in contrast to the more work focused but still immature incarnation.

Yoruka Kirihime, Divine Protector of Betrayed Assassins (Empire's Assassin Blade)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yoruka_kirihime.jpg

  • Rival: Laura Bodewig
  • Enemies: Sheev Palpatine, Arcturus Mengsk, the Grinner, the Enclave
  • Lux Arcadia was taking a bath on his temple after a long day of work until suddenly, he felt a pair of breasts caressing his back. Then, a soothing voice began whispering on his ear about her talents in pleasing men. Lux let out a scream that was across many houses. a clear sign that Yoruka had ascended.
  • How to make a sword-wielding assassin even more dangerous? Give her a Mini-Mecha capable of mass destruction. This gives Yoruka the perfect choice for missions that involve both infiltration and large-scale combat, and the Pantheon offers no shortage of those.
  • Being an assassin can be a thankless task, and nobody knows that better than Yoruka. Since childhood, she was trained in the art of assassination and was shunned even by her own father. Only her brother, the heir to the throne, was kind to her.
  • After a war with the Arcadia Empire that proved costly for both sides, she was forced to cut a deal with Arcadia's Emperor. The deal was simple: she would serve the empire as an assassin while her brother would remain under imperial protection. Unfortunately, her kingdom's nobles killed Yoruka's brother in an attempt to curry favor with the Emperor. With a brother as kind and adorable as hers, can anyone blame her for wanting revenge?
  • Taking pity on her, Ezio Auditore and Ryu Hayabusa have become her mentors, hoping to refine her assassination skills towards more productive purposes. While they cannot break the rules of the Assassin Order or the Hayabusa clan to teach her their most hallowed techniques, they settled on improving her swordsmanship and agility. Suffice to say, Yoruka has flourished under their mentorship.
  • Shido Itsuka has a surprisingly good relationship with her, given how much she reminds him of Kurumi Tokisaki.
  • Despite both Lux and Ezio's animosity towards Night Raid, Yoruka enjoys a more positive relationship with them and have worked together in multiple assassination contracts. When questioned about this, Yoruka replied that as long as war exists, assassins will always be necessary.
  • Gets along swimmingly with Stella Vermillion and Ayame Kajou, thanks to their shared voice. Ayame is curious to know about their sex lives and constantly teased them until Stella revealed that she actually had sex with Ikki. Ayame was uncomfortable with this while Yoruka displayed a mild form of jealousy, as she had been trying to do the same with Lux. Neverthless, they remain good friends.
  • Anyone who reminds Yoruka of the Arcadia Empire will meet the wrong end of her blade. Darth Sidious and Arcturus Mengsk are on her hitlist for being as cruel and destructive as Lux's father. She also doesn't take it kindly to the Grineer and the Enclave using aggressive military expansion to unify their worlds. All of them have expressed a desire to convert Yoruka to their cause, or at least revese-engineer the Yato-no-kami's technology.
    • On an assassination contract on a Grineer target, she came across a group of Tenno operatives. Finding their experiences not too diferent from her own, Yoruka has agreed to help them in their fight against the Grineer.
  • Jealous that Celestia Ralgris ascended before her, thinking she got a headstart in taking Lux all for herself. Nevertheless, they remain on the same side.
  • Delighted to learn Lux defeated Ichika Orimura in a simulated duel, saying that it was the only logical conclusion. Unfortunately, her comment was overheard by Laura Bodewig, who didn't take it kindly to her "wife" being called weak. Sure enough, another simulated duel was in order. Yoruka's assassin training and the Yato-no-kami's Divine Raiment won the day.

  • Alignment: Lawful Evil (supposedly, but Lawful Neutral might be more likely)
  • Portfolio: Consummate Professional, Professional Killer, Scannable Man, Super Soldier
  • Domain: Assassination, Professionalism, Discretion
  • Allies: None, by 47's own choice, as he believes there's a chance he could be hired to kill anyone in the Pantheon. That said, he seems to have a soft spot for Fluttershy and Chester A Bum
  • 'Professional' Rivals: Ezio, The Spy, Sniper Wolf, Corvo, Night Raid, Niko Bellic, Vodka
  • Opposes: Anyone who forces people to kill
  • When Pinkie Pie tried to host him a party upon his ascension, she was surprised and disappointed to find 47 never came, after eventually giving up on waiting for him, Pinkie caught Homer Simpson waking up in a trash bin with only his underwear on, which confused some of the gods who reportedly saw Homer leaving the party fully dressed, which caused Pinkie to shortly figure out how 47 slipped past her and noted she was actually quite impressed. Though Homer is still trying to find 47 to get his clothes back.
  • Being the professional assassin he is, 47 is not afraid to assassinate anyone in the Pantheon he is contracted to kill, regardless of the deity's rank and power. He won't even refuse to assassinate Asura if contracted to do so. Though he admits that such a task would be… difficult.
  • Despite usually distancing himself from other deities, 47 has a surprising soft spot toward Fluttershy, holding a fair amount of respect toward her love of animals. When he learned about what Gilda did to her, he offered to kill Gilda for free. Fluttershy quickly, but politely, refused, not wanting any unnecessary violence caused for her sake.
  • Agent 47 has an unusual respect toward the House of Faith, a fraction of the money he earns from his contract killings go to that house. The Gods of that house, however, have mixed feelings about it.
  • Agent 47 is one god that Chester A. Bum always looks forward to seeing, whenever 47 has to do 'business' in the House, he would consistently drop money into Chester's styrofoam cup whenever they meet. Chester is even one of the rare gods that always forgives 47 whenever he has to 'borrow' Chester's clothes.

  • When Conan was on one of his regular visits to Ai Haibara's temple, she sensed a presence she had not felt in a long time and began cowering in terror before an invisible force. Conan was savvy enough to recognise her plight, and immediately went to the sub-house of Social & Recreational Work and questioned The Inspector on any anomalies. Sure enough, a terrorist incident had occurred at the checkpoints with an army's worth of hitmen dressed in black crossing over in the ensuing chaos. This can only mean one thing...the Black Organization has entered the Pantheon.
  • The main antagonists of Detective Conan, this criminal syndicate has an undefined objective which uses assassinations to fund its operations and secretive research projects, killing near thousands to maintain its secrecy. The most dangerous aspect of this is that nearly all of said killings were never traced back to them, and as such almost no one knows of their existence with the exception of a small handful of individuals.
  • They entered the Pantheon after receiving leaked intel from Former Chief Justice Johnson, one of their many informants that turncoat member Shiho Miyano (codename Sherry) was still alive despite being thought dead after the Bell Tree Express incident. She was actually Kaito Kid in disguisenote . They tested the waters by sending several lower-ranked members as followers and visitors. After successfully accomplishing this without incident, plans were drawn up for them to bypass the checkpoint via a suicide bomber, which eventually came to fruition after a lapse in security while changing shifts. Like it or not, Conan and company will have to accept that the Black Organization is here to stay.
    • Their position in the Pantheon was legitimized quickly due to them bribing clerks in the Court of the Gods to hasten their ascension. Johnson's residual influence may have been a factor in their ascension under the title Murder, Inc., since some Court members still have a tinge of loyalty towards him. The reason given is that they are so efficient at their assassinations that only a handful (including Conan, Shiho and a few FBI and CIA agents) know of their existence. That and it took close to thirteen years for Conan to discover the boss' name, Renya Karasuma, who had appeared far earlier in the series, Hidden in Plain Sight as the former owner of the golden Sunset Manor.
    • Since their ascension, Haibara's temple in the House of Health and Diseases has been given heavy police protection and the interior is now only accessible by portal. As of now, the Black Organization has no knowledge of where she is in the Pantheon, but are sending search parties everywhere to look for her. To compound matters, Shuichi Akai is now in charge of her security personnel.
  • It should be noted that the members named above are not the only ones in the Pantheon. It is an organization, after all. Hundreds of men and women serve in the Black Organization's ranks, with their higher-ranking members working under code names, sneaking into advantageous roles in the Pantheon's ranks. Supposedly this is to ensure better security for their organization, but it's painfully obvious that their intent is to weed out prominent threats to eliminate or manipulate for their own agenda. Worst of all is that with only a sliver of the Organization's membership being known to most of the Pantheon, no one knows who or where these spies are. Even Overdeities and Greater Gods have some trouble with this, a testament to their criminal prowess.
    • This works both ways, as the Organization itself has plenty of sleeper agents from other espionage bodies working under non-official cover (NOC). Gin himself once commented that the Organization for all its efficiency is 'full of rats'. Already five confirmed kills of special agents working under codenames have been documented since their ascension to the Pantheon, from MI-6, SHIELD, the GUAG Intelligence Division, and the like.
  • This impressive move has made them a force to be reckoned with as well as business partners of more prestigious organizations such as HYDRA. Their leader, the Red Skull, personally commended them for how quickly they acclimatized to their new environment and implanted sleeper agents everywhere but interjected that HYDRA did it first.
    • Via HYDRA, the Black Organization has cultivated ties with other prominent syndicates and groups such as SHOCKER, which has loaned the Organization some of its employed members to assist in creating new killer drugs and poisons. The Great Leader is presumably Not So Different from the Boss, since he is The Man Behind the Man to a good number of wealthy groups in his home world and is one of the most powerful people in all of Japan.
  • After HYDRA, most other big organizations and crime families in the rest of their House have tenuous alliances with the Black Organization, given that it is a certainty that most of their own henchmen are on the Organization's hit list. James Moriarty is a tactician of the Organization, important enough to have the codename of 'Smirnoff'. Sherlock Holmes is painfully aware of Moriarty's intimate connection to the Organization, and is an arch-enemy of theirs on principle. Since he is the pretty much the Detective of Detectives, The Boss has declared him Public Enemy Number One in Shuichi Akai's absence but so far all assassination attempts on him have been unsuccessful. James Bond comes a close second, as the Pantheon's premier secret agent.
    • Vito Corleone, the king of organized crime in the Pantheon, treads carefully with them if he hires them for the rare bounty hunt, since he prefers to handle things personally. His Sicilian Code of Honour prevents him from associating too openly with them, and he has warned Michael to avoid contact with them if necessary to prevent any power struggle. The Organization would probably be second to the Corleones in influence if they diversified.
    • Is in a ceasefire with Raymond Reddington, when Chianti and Korn had a run-in with some of his agents when the duo were targeting a visitor to one of the Corleone's restaurants. Suffice to say, a shootout occurred where Chianti was fatally injured. Korn had to carry her to the House of Life and Death for revival. Had the Boss not intervened, Chianti would have killed Reddington on the spot. He has reserved judgement on the Organization in lieu of the failed assassination. Time will tell.
    • Outside the House of Crime, their closest ally is Giovanni from Team Rocket. The power of Pokémon and the high profits they yield, as well as the efficiency in which they can be used in battle to dispatch targets, especially Ghost-type Pokémon, opened their eyes to how much more they ought to understand the fantastical nature of the Pantheon, acting as the impetus for them diversifying into alliances with more 'exotic' organizations. The Boss is especially pleased at the gift that Giovanni gave him in their first meeting: a new armored Mewtwo clone which his scientific branch is rearing for combat use and a pet Murkrow, but he keeps this to himself. Mewtwo, already nursing a grudge against Giovanni for the cruel treatment at his hands, has plans to devastate their joint operation. The Boss has a similar realistic outlook to Giovanni on the use of Pokémon, thus he treats the more delusional Team Leaders with disdain, believing they are striving for the unreachable. They think him (personally) as inferior to them in tapping the power of Legendary Pokémon, even though they don't know much about him at all.
    • Honest is one of the many powerful individuals they have on their payroll, due to his immense power and influence over the Capital and now the Politicians sub-house. The Penguin, who Honest split ties with for this, is not pleased. Though he and Honest seemingly parted on good terms, Mr. Cobblepot wants revenge on the Organization for stealing his profits. Obviously, Akame and the Night Raid group have no love for the Organization as compared to the Penguin, the Organization takes a much more offensive stance towards them.
    • Yet another politician they have working with them is Senator Roark, the amoral and unethical 'mayor' of Basin City. They see a unique opportunity for them in his dominion as Sin City is as wretched and corrupt of a hive as anyone can think of, where their assassination and narcotics businesses (along with other undisclosed motives) can bear fruit on a daily basis. Roark Senior is watchful though, because the Organization's secretive nature could easily lead to him being assassinated by Chianti or Korn and control of the city wrested away from him. So the answer's no for now, but that can easily change in the future pending further developments.
    • Among their other business partners include company executives Lex Luthor, Norman Osborn and Mr. Burns, who provide them with metahuman-based samples such as adamantium and Nth metal and illegal nuclear waste respectively. Don't ask what they're using them for.
  • When a sample of APTX 4869 fell into the hands of Walter White, word of his tests with the poison reached Vermouth quickly, and she offered him a position as a liaison. He accepted, and his blue meth has become one of the Organization's most profitable side ventures. Walter is not truly loyal, just using the handy connections to more conveniently sell his narcotics in the Pantheon.
  • They are slightly averse to working with non-human or advanced individuals in the Pantheon, which is what prevents them from achieving first-class infamy in the House of Crime, since they are unnerved by the many otherworldly beings that can warp reality or kill millions in an instant, whereas in their homeworld they could control much of the world from the shadows and eliminate whoever was unnecessary. They will just have to get used to an environment where they can't control things completely, to which the God of Planning, Tzeentch, sneers at, considering he 'planned' the Organization's entry into the Pantheon.
    • Related to this, Agents K and J have been closely monitoring the Black Organization since their ascension because Conan once investigated them due to a case of Mistaken Identity. They do not have clearance to act against them yet because the Organization has not yet engaged in direct criminal activity with aliens. This may change after getting word that the Organization has their sights on the Thing and the Xenomorph as possible bio-weapons. Changed to a 'Definite' after they struck a deal with King Cold for access to Frieza Force supplies. King Cold only, mind you. No word yet on whether they have ties with Boris the Animal.
  • Their most prominent rivals are the Fire-Starter faction of the V.F.D. (Volunteer Fire Department). Their unassuming nature makes them very similar to the Organization and could have led to a promising alliance. Unfortunately, a Fire-Starter just happened to commit arson on one of the Organization's caches of APTX 4869 and lose them a substantial amount of their most successful poison. Suffice to say, the leadership, particularly Rum, is reportedly livid at the lost profits, and are seeking to catch the agent responsible for the attack, whom the Fire-Starters claim was drunk from, you guessed it, rum. The other faction of Fire-Fighters is not overly involved in this affair, but their desire to make the world a quieter and peaceful place puts them at odds with the Organization.
    • This rivalry has gained the attention of the V.S.S.E., whose Cooperatives could have infiltrated the Organization, given their bitter opposition to terrorist groups, especially since the Black Organization is more Obviously Evil than the V.F.D..
    • The entire Assassin Brotherhood, regardless of alignment, has all of them as targets.
    • The Dark Brotherhood became Public Enemy Number Two for the Organization, which stings because the Organization beat them to the punch for the Murder, Inc. title. The Brotherhood made their displeasure clear by foiling one of their hits and slaying the assassin in turn. Some say it was part of a contract, but others say it was but simple spite to show they were definitive competitors in the business and aren't afraid of encroaching on their territory not unlike the Morag Tong. Regardless, the Black Organization seem to be vying for bringing along the Dark Brotherhood's various detractors over the course of history, assuming they haven't already.
  • Thanks to some masterful manipulation by Vermouth, Keel Lorenz has a tense partnership with them. They only see him as their meal ticket into the Council of Shadows. A mysterious new sub-division may also have been formed exclusively for contact with the Illuminati.
  • They had planned an audience with Kuroto Dan and Genm Corp to establish a partnership with Tequila as liaison but abandoned the move after learning that he regained his sanity and morality. They hope to get his father, Masamune ascended to solve that problem. Said plan has been fulfilled and now they have a healthy collection of powerful Bugsters to use against their enemies when the time comes. Good thinking on the boss' part. It has officially unseated Walter White's meth as their most profitable venture. Let's hope that Masamune doesn't stab them in the back.
  • It is implied that their ultimate aim may be to unlock the secret of immortality (This is far more apparent with their High Priests from the Magic Kaito Organization). Lord Voldemort, repugnant at the thought of having anyone other than himself attain this, has considered Fenrir Greyback as a liaison to keep an eye on them. Some jokes have been poked at this given that the Organization labels its primary threats as 'Silver Bullets'. Have been banned from the House of Life and Death for their many incursions into the place.
    • To get around this, the Boss has extended the hand of friendship to Ra's al Ghul, leader of the League of Assassins and a fierce competitor to them in terms of kills. Ra's is impressed that the Organization has managed to remain hidden in the shadows for so long with only a small group of members being known by the authorities and has permitted their scientific branch limited access to the Lazarus Pits. In return, they let him take the lead on particularly high-level assassinations from time to time, including a raid on Batman's temple. Batman is livid at the Organization for being behind the sacking of his temple, but regards them as a low priority, He has noted their uncanny similarities to Leviathan and the Court of Owls. They have responded by contacting corrupt employees of Wayne Enterprises to freeze the Dark Knight's assets and halt his operations for good. Of course, they are too daft to connect the dots. The employees, not the Organization.
    • While he has not openly antagonized Ra's yet, the Shredder (the whiny one at least) is miffed that the Organization didn't think of approaching him first, since his mutagen is an equally profitable venture. For now, he's a passive ally and sometimes foe, but is not adverse to pulling an Enemy Mine should the need arise.
  • Exclusive to Gin:
    • The third-in-command of the organization, Gin is basically their Field Leader. He is personally responsible for Conan's 'vertically-challenged' condition. Unquestionably the most loyal member of the Organization, he has no qualms about committing mass murder to further his boss' goals, even his allies.
    • A merciless and efficient assassin, he revels in fulfilling every task the Organization sets him with. He has staunch 'friends' in Pantheon deities who are as cold-blooded and merciless as him, though he would gladly eliminate them if ordered to. May or may not have an Ax-Crazy side.
    • While the rest of the Organization is subtly opposed to associating with the less grounded-in-reality deities of the Pantheon, Gin feels it to be a great help to their cause, no matter how volatile or dangerous they are. Examples such as Millennium come to mind for him, with their Nazi vampires as a useful source of manpower for the Organization. To this end, he has led many operations to capture certain enhanced individuals in the Pantheon, including the two Tokyo Ghouls, Ken Kaneki and Touka Kirishima, from which his colleagues have extracted Rc cells to mass-produce quinques for battle against vampires and paranormal beings. Souji Tendou sees him and Vodka as a Badass Normal version of the Hell Brothers (PunchHopper and KickHopper), only with no morals this time.
    • Do not talk about the time his team tried to experiment on Tetsuo, unless you want a slow and painful death. And then there are the episodes of him almost succeeding in stealing the Titan powers of Eren Yeager, Bertolt Hoover and Annie Leonhart simultaneously, and on and on and on... It's not a string of failures, though. Each capture of his has yielded positive results in one way or another, he just doesn't disclose them.
    • Gin, of all the Organization's members, takes great pleasure in hunting Sherry, imagining her nude several times, implying that he and Shiho have had a romantic history. He has neither confirmed nor denied this, only exclaiming that he will give her the most pleasurable and graceful death possible for having the audacity to survive their assassination attempts more than once. The possible implications of this statement have not been lost on Haibara's security detail. Given how morally bankrupt he is in comparison to his fellow members, this is not impossible. It is unknown how Shuichi Akai's ascension to the Pantheon as the head of Haibara's security detail will worsen things.
      • This mentality has him rubbing shoulders with anime deities of the same manner of thinking, such as Nobuyuki Sugou, who had sexually harassed his fiancé Asuna before. For convenience' sake, he serves as the Organization's liaison to him, creating an account to enter ALfheim Online as a Spriggan. Kirito and Asuna once tangled with him, not knowing who he was or where he came from. He acknowledges that the girl has spunk and would be a useful asset if she were recruited, as would her boyfriend. He expresses an odd interest in this Quinella Sugou keeps mentioning. Since her ascension, Quinella gladly accepted an offer to join the Organization, finding Gin an interestingly alluring man for their similar obsession with control, Quinella her subjects and Gin Sherry. Quinella isn't above giving favours to the male members of the Organization in exchange for following her orders, yet seems to have a significant bed-warming relationship with Gin. Ask him about this and you risk death by at least 50 gunshots (if you're lucky).
      • Another is Johan Liebert, whom he sees as a psychological equal in breaking others to the point of killing themselves. Has brought him in for certain interrogation sessions to get fast results, and once requested use of his 'wife' Lucy, to test the Diclonius gene on a group of snooping SCP Foundation agents. They don't meet much though given Johan's high rank in the Grand United Alliance of Evil.
    • More than anyone else, Gin and Shuichi Akai treat each other as archenemies, no less because he personally killed Akemi Miyano, Akai's girlfriend and Sherry's sister. Gin is extremely sceptical and contemptuous of the threat he poses to the Organization, dismissing Vermouth's remarks that he may become a Silver Bullet. He doesn't know that Akai has ascended to the Pantheon under his Subaru Okiya persona, yet doesn't really care if he is alive, because:
    Gin: "If he is still alive, I get to kill him again."
    • While he has amicable enough bonds with individuals cut from the same cloth, such as Takeshi Asakura and Ali al-Saachez, his most frequent partner (besides Vodka) is Esdeath of all people. Gin was instantly struck by her desire for battle and business-like approach to murder when she first met the Organization as an envoy for Honest and was paired up with her once when the Night Raid group attacked one of their weapons caches. Since then, the two have been the Big Bad Duumvirate of the Organization, with the highest kill count, to which even some of their competitors would gape at. The House of Love as always has shipped them both with each other, yet Esdeath's utter obsession with Tatsumi puts a damper on that.
    • He is most in favour of using the numerous artifacts in the Pantheon to further the Organization's ambitions, and is primarily targeting the Death Note as a useful tool for them, living proof that 'the pen is mightier than the sword'. To be able to write a name and have it near guaranteed that the person written will die of a heart attack is a boon to them, he says. He has attempted to establish rapport with Light Yagami for this purpose, but Light's A God Am I has pretty much doomed their alliance in the first place in addition to his radical stance against crime in general. Kira thinks of Gin as an Expy of Kyosuke Higuchi and a means to an end, just like everyone else he allies with.
    • Vile as he might be, even he abhors working with That Yellow Bastard, Ethan Roark's son. To him, Roark Junior has no sense of subtlety in the Pantheon where crimes have to be done subtly. Being unashamed of doing evil deeds is one thing, but to parade it around in such a disgusting body and shove it in the Organization's face is a terrible strategy. Not surprised that even his father has regretted thinking of putting him up for the presidency.
  • Exclusive to Vodka:
    • The managerial secretary of the Organization, Vodka serves as Number Two to Gin, addressing him by the honorific 'Aniki' instead of his code name. While less intelligent than his partner, he's no dumb brute. He has exceptional memory, of which he uses to remind Gin of angles he's forgotten or particularly important murders. It perfectly complements Gin's tendency to forget the many victims he's killed.
    • Doesn't have a whole lot of independent relationships to speak of, since most of his time is spent backing Gin up. Probably due to how similar they look, Agent 47 is a subject of his ire, additionally he is a genetically-enhanced clone that has succeeded in gunning down plenty of lower-ranked Organization members.
    • Naturally at odds with the actual Dr. Watson, given his dynamic with Gin is very similar to that of the doctor and Holmes. Not that Watson knows or cares about that.
    • Has proposed keeping an eye on Saxton Hale, since his mercenaries (especially The Spy) could be in the Organization without anyone knowing it and pull a Hoist by His Own Petard on them, stealing everything they had, such as project data.
    • NEVER once attacked him alone to steal a briefcase of Gaia Memories he was transporting back to the Organization's building, and got beaten up by Katsumi just because. While the Museum operatives (on behalf of SHOCKER) took care of it, he got pretty banged up. Vodka, usually quite cool-headed, takes it somewhat... personally.
  • Exclusive to Vermouth:
    • The lead reconnaisance agent of the Organization, Vermouth is a notorious Wild Card among their ranks, pursuing her own goals above all others, which makes her an intense object of dislike among her peers. They only tolerate her because she is the Boss' favourite. She knows Conan's true identity as Shinichi Kudo and Haibara's as Sherry (including her survival of the Bell Tree Express incident), but keeps that information to herself. Shinichi and Ran saved her life a year prior to the start of the series even though she was about to kill them, and she addresses them as 'Cool Guy' and 'Angel' respectively. Also, she was Yukiko Kudo's (Conan's mother) former partner. Ran hates her for having wanted to kill Haibara before due to her Big Sister Instinct, but has no idea about who she works for and why she targets her. She has a special affinity for Kaito Kid, given he clearly took notes from her mentor, Toichi Kuroba, actually the first Kaito Kid and Kaito's father, though she doesn't know it.
    • An expert at impersonation, even certain denizens of the corresponding house say her disguises are of a frightening perfection, with even the Master of Disguise, the great Arsène Lupin himself acknowledges her talent as being on a different level to that of people like Catwoman. Mystique does not share this sentiment, although they share similar personality traits, seeing her as a non-mutant muscling in on her territory.
    • Publicly an American actress, she moonlights under the aliases Sharon Vineyard, and after she (publicly) passed away, her 'daughter', Chris. While a lauded superstar in her home world, the actually American actors in the House of Theatre and Spectacle know better than to give her English-speaking roles even if they don't know her identity as an Organization member, and for good reason. Her American accent is terrible. Listen to this: note . Samuel L. Jackson has a special beef with her, but that's for an entirely different reason.
    • Vermouth, like every other member of the Organization, wants Sherry dead, but has a good reason for it. She always believed that the research the Miyanos engaged in was immoral, and that Shiho was foolish to continue their work. Then there's the fact that both she and Sherry could have been rivals for Gin's affection, turning this into a case of Murder the Hypotenuse. Summarily, she is disgusted at any amoral scientists in the Pantheon, especially the Organization's ally Ryoma Sengoku. He snarkily offered her a prototype Rotten Apple Lockseed as a form of diplomacy, but she recognised the offing and strode off in seething rage.
    • Gin's attempts to capture metahuman deities in the Pantheon gained the attention of Emma Frost, a Femme Fatale much like Vermouth, with the difference that her Ms. Fanservice tendencies are far more obvious, as the Goddess of Sexy Uniforms. She's especially wary that Vermouth will attempt capture of Jean Grey.
    • Talia al Ghul is a bit of a sore subject for Vermouth, given that she's stolen many victories from her in group missions. She takes it all in stride though, and the two, despite remaining fierce competitors, note their stylistic and psychological similarities as devious and talented women trying to prove their worth (Vermouth seemingly to the Organization, and Talia her father).
    • Being a somewhat darker version of Yelena Belova is a key motivator in the original Black Widow, Natasha Romanova, focusing on her when Fury tasked her with spying on the Organization. Vermouth treats her as a Worthy Opponent, but Natasha does not return this sentiment, making disparaging remarks like the House of Theatre and Spectacle that Vermouth's Engrish renders her grossly unfit to be an actor, let alone infiltration and reconnaisance. Relations with Pokémon Hunter J are slightly warmer, due to their mutual partnership with Team Rocket.
    • Speaking of Team Rocket, Vermouth has worked with the iconic trio on occasion to catch and subdue Mewtwo as and when he damages their scientific facilities, despite Giovanni's best efforts. However, it's more of a one-woman show due to them blasting off...again. She, for one, thinks them incompetent idiots who are basically terrible examples of Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!, with their late parents holding high places in Team Rocket.
    • Mata Hari has a bone to pick with her, despite both being spies who exploit this skill to get what they want. Mata Hari despises her employers who don't care about anyone, reminding her of how her husband regularly abuses her and has no care of her well-being.
    • Pities Noel Vermillion, a lady who deserves her spot in the Pantheon but is derided and mistaken for a man because of her small chest size.
    • Arya Stark has put Vermouth on her kill list. She must have done something pretty bad to deserve it.
  • Exclusive to Kir:
    • Kir was introduced as Rena Mizunashi, a newscaster who was outed as an agent of the Organization. Then, she was revealed to be Hidemi Hondou, a CIA agent who had infiltrated the Organization. She essentially condemned her fellow spy Ethan Hondou (her father) to death when he killed himself to prevent her cover from being blown in her early CIA days. She was also forced to cut off all contact with her brother, Eisuke, when she began her infiltration. As an apology gift for being away from him so long, Hidemi has granted her brother heraldry alongside the FBI agents investigating the Organization, promising him a Mission Control role in her operations once he has reached the legal age of 20.
    • The Black Organization has tasked her with penetrating the only news outlet in the Pantheon led by Kent Brockman. She personally feels he is an unsavoury newscaster, due to his ego and sensationalism. J. Jonah Jameson, the editor who she reports to, is more of an honest, if somewhat boisterous and irritable man. Both don't know of her allegiance to the CIA, and merely chalk it down to her having an alcohol problem.
    • Her status as a CIA agent makes her a correspondent and contact of many other agents in the Pantheon, including the aforementioned James Bond, Agent 007. She prefers working alone (out of habit to prevent unnecessary casualties), but often liaises with deities in the House of Justice at the 77th Precinct, most notably her trope contemporary, Carmelita Fox. Much appreciates Lois Lane's help in getting her information out to the public, but would much rather keep things low and not get her husband involved. She has mixed feelings towards Leroy Gibbs (or Gibb-san) for his ruthless interrogation techniques that have struck fear in terror groups in the Pantheon.
    • Her teamwork with Commissioner Gordon is all but a necessity at this point, with Batman taking the fight to the Organization. She hasn't met him personally, with his constant patrols and whatnot. Both are well aware of how a secret society influencing life in a city through murder and slaughter can have devastating effects. That's basically Gotham.
    • An unofficial member of the Kira Task Force, reporting to Soichiro Yagami on Gin's dealings with Light. She is outraged that Soichiro's son singlehandedly murdered hundreds to become god of the new world, even allowing his father's death in pursuit of said goal. She mostly deals with the official matters; the actual investigation is left to Bourbon.
    • When the Organization partakes in particularly shady business deals that warrant further manpower, she brings in Peter Burke, the go-to authority in the Pantheon for white-collar crime. Shares his viewpoint that general crime is neglected in the Pantheon due to much more high-profile authorities, since this could be a show of strategy of the Organization to keep covering their tracks.
    • Holds Kazumi Amano in high esteem for being the big sister she should have been to Eisuke.
    • Brings her brother to Akane Hino's temple every weekend for an afternoon meal. Her tasty okonomiyaki brings back fond memories for them both, because their father ate okonomiyaki with Eisuke regularly before his death.
    • Carmelita has graciously offered her a spot in the Delta Cops. She did not immediately accept, since she was visibly shaken by the reason the group is on hiatus after Aqua's suspension due to corruption from the Realm of Darkness. Has tentatively done so on condition that she be allowed to continue her infiltration without the team interfering and ruining her attempts to avenge her father's death. Carmelita is very thankful for the added help.
  • Exclusive to Bourbon:
    • Bourbon is Tooru Amuro, an operative of the Organization who specializes in deduction and analyzing and also one of the few people Vermouth is willing to work with. Like Kir, he is actually Rei Furuya, a special agent of the National Police Agency Public Security Bureau who infiltrated the Organization. He is characterized by his rivalry with Shuichi Akai, who he blames for the death of fellow operative Hiromitsu Morofushi (codename Scotch). Scotch killed himself believing Akai was going to expose his identity without knowing he was an FBI agent. When Rei came on the scene, Akai claimed responsibility for killing Scotch, again not knowing that he was a fellow Mole. He remains distrustful of Akai to this day. Yuya Kazami, his subordinate and sometimes resident comic relief often serves as Bourbon's public figurehead in the TPPD.
    • As Bourbon, he was tasked to find Sherry and also verify Shuichi Akai's death, disguising himself as a scarred Akai to gauge the reactions of his friends and relatives. He later takes up a job as a waiter at Café Poirot and becomes Kogoro Mouri's apprentice with the promise of plentiful financial returns. He has since determined that Sherry is officially deceased and Akai's status remains unclear (actually disguised as Subaru Okiya). After Shinichi Kudo received unwanted media attention, Rum personally requested that Bourbon look into the teenage detective and make sure he was actually dead, warning him that 'time is money'.
    • This has made him the most dangerous operative of the Black Organization in a sense because his status as Kogoro's apprentice ensures he is in close proximity to Conan and Haibara a lot, increasing the risk of their identities being exposed. Thankfully, he no longer serves in this capacity in the Pantheon. The Boss has re-assigned him from his aforementioned task to focus on more pressing matters in light of their ascension.
    • It is important to note that while both Kir and Bourbon are moles within the Organization, they do not work with each other. While Kir handles official government and bureau-based contacts, Bourbon's interests lie more with actual detectives. Besides Conan and Sherlock Holmes, Ryotaro Dojima serves as one of his main contacts. They usually meet at the House of Food, bonding over their shared experiences over being unable to save a life, though Dojima's resultant trauma is far more severe than a mere misunderstanding.
    • He's a little creeped out by L and Near, who he works with on cases involving Kira. They agree that Gin should never gain possession of a Death Note, considering that would sign Shuichi Akai's death warrant in case he decided to check if he was really dead. He is very critical of L for only taking on cases that interest him. While Kira is the main threat, Rei's main target in this case is Teru Mikami, a legal practitioner who worships Light as his god.
    • Acts as the Organization's liaison to the GUAE Mecha Cohort, but obviously despises Char for his extremist views on Newtypes, and also because of this. That said, he admits that Char is better than his other enemies in terms of morals and inspiring loyalty in his soldiers. Off-duty, he often feeds information to the Comet's Arch-Enemy, Amuro, and yes, they have the same voice. Amuro has made jokes that his two names are anagrams of his name and that of their seiyū.
    • When the House of Combat for the first time to train, he met Yamcha, the Memetic Loser, trying to once again surpass the limits of Goku, limits that were far off for him. Rei decided to spar with him but got beaten soundly just to make him feel better. Like with Amuro, this selfless action may be attributed to that guy. Anyway, the two are sparring partners when Rei is off-duty.
    • Once visited the House of Gaming to play tennis with Mario. He swears he's seen a similar player character in a Mantendo game somewhere. Also really hates Ippo Makunouchi for beating him in a boxing match.
    • While on a mission with Kir transporting important electronics for SHOCKER, they were attacked by a Worm Orphnoch mimicry. Luckily, Takumi Inui, Kamen Rider Faiz saved their skin before they were evolved into Orphnoches themselves. Turns out Masato Kusaka was behind the attack in a desperate attack on Smart Brain's assets on behalf of the Grand United Alliance of Chaos. Kusaka cornered him just to threaten him. Doesn't help that the Lobster Orphnoch may be a secret member of the Organization (she sends wine to her victims before killing them).
    Kusaka: "Don't mess with me. I don't care if you're good or bad. You or Takumi get in my way again, I'll have some new Blood on These Hands. And whoever you work for too."
    • Maika Sakuranomiya lit up when her trademark scary smile caused him to burst into laughter. He would want to visit her and Chiyoko's cafe every day, but is too tied up in his duties to do so. Seemingly under the same impression as everyone else that Maika's Love Interest, Dino, is a a sexual predator.
    • Rei has become friends with Jake Peralta because he is a childish manchild yet is the greatest detective of the precinct in his home world and has shown more compassion towards his friends a lot and greatly supports them, such as helping his friend Rosa on coming out to her parents as a bisexual woman.
    • Dominic Toretto briefly was a driving instructor for him when he was on an undercover mission in the House of Travel. That's about it.
  • Exclusive to Chianti:
    • A sniper of the Organization alongside Korn, Chianti is a Dark Action Girl who like Gin, lives for her job. She loves the adrenaline rush of shooting her quarry from a long distance, but is very impatient. As such, she is repeatedly reminded not to shoot random civilians out of boredom.
    • She does have an Achilles' Heel: her maximal firing range is at 600 yards whereas Shuichi Akai's maximum is 700 yards. To rectify this problem, the Boss has employed Defense House member Taskmaster to hone her sniping skills to their optimum level and teach her some other combat skills while he's at it.
    • She despises Vermouth for being responsible for fellow sniper Calvados' death, since his infatuation with the woman led to his eventual capture and suicide. Even though he's alive and well in the Pantheon, she still nurses a desire to put a bullet in her head.
    • She has very tight standards for friends in the Pantheon, as according to her colleagues her impulsiveness has nearly led to failure several times as well as her general unpleasantness. Harley Quinn is a frequent collaborator in group operations, but her Ax-Crazy nature and her tendency to switch sides on the fly is very counteractive to their partnership.
    • Misa Amane, one of her neighbours in the sub-house, is a more balanced, yet still kill-seeking, woman whose bubbly disposition perfectly contrasts Chianti's Blood Knight personality. Out of respect for her well-being (and her own ego), Chianti flat-out refuses to use the Death Note when they work together, but is trying to persuade her to fork it over. She's too loyal to Light to follow that instruction.
    • Although she has made a lot of enemies out of the House of Firearms, Korn tends to shoulder the antagonism they face on that front. Hence, most of the duo's enemies are listed on his sub-section. Yoko Littner, however, is on her blacklist when she foiled an operation to slaughter a group of innocent children who had caught a glimpse of them. She received very painful retribution in the form of a deep scar on her cheek like Gin that still stings. She's covered it up, but when Chianti's buttons are pushed, you'd better believe she will be back for her. With. A. Vengeance.
  • Exclusive to Korn:
    • The Stoic to Chianti's Hot-Blooded, Korn is antisocial and doesn't speak much, except the rare One-Liner. As such, most of what is known about his relationships are from word of mouth. Rumour has it that he's secretly attracted to his partner.
    • There are theories spreading around that he could actually be the Boss, masquerading as an ordinary member of the Organization, attributed to his general closed-off life besides hanging around Chianti and training in the Organization's rifle range. Right?
    • Has been seen at times squaring off with the main Cold Sniper of the Pantheon, Widowmaker, and several other major snipers in the Pantheon, most notably Deadshot, Boba Fett and Hero Killer Stain. Widowmaker he gets along with smashingly based on their very similar personalities. Korn doesn't really show this though.
    • Although very apathetic, he is stealthily protective of his partner from the sub-house of Firearms, who are their main adversaries due to the Organization's many incursions into the place looking for members. Moreover, some of them have big-ticket tropes to their name, such as Roland Deschain, fastest gunslinger in the Pantheon. They are awaiting orders on whether to target him due to his supposed immortality. They get along fine with the Brave Companions in conversation, but are ruthlessly at each other's throats when on a hunt, Chianti mostly adding fuel to the fire. As much as Korn appreciates the company, he'd rather work alone than in an affiliation with other organizations.
    • Gin's association with Nobuyuki Sugou has gotten them the attention of Sinon and her mentor, Kamen Rider Zolda, who are actively trying to prevent him from forming alliances to force him and Chianti out of the House of Weapons for good. Their regular missions here looking for prospective recruits is far enough.
  • Exclusive to Rum:
    • A prime target of the entire House of Justice, since he is on the move. Compared to the rest of the named members, hardly anything is known about Rum.
    • Eyewitness reports from various former Organization members (unnamed for security reasons) have given conflicting accounts of Rum's overall appearance and build. Some say Rum is a strongly-built man, some say he or she has a feminine look, and yet others say he or she is an old man. All sources do agree that Rum has a damaged eye either covered by an eyepatch or replaced by an artificial eye.
    • The three prime suspects have at least a few qualities matching the various descriptions.
      • First, Hyoue Kuroda. The superintendent of the homicide division of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department, he was transferred from the Nagano Police Department to replace Kiyonaga Matsumoto who had been promoted to senior superintendent. He has the Face of a Thug which tends to intimidate a lot of people and rub them the wrong way. No one knows how he lost his eye except through some kind of accident, but it's mostly hidden behind a darkened spectacle lens. Additionally, he has been confirmed to be Bourbon's superior in the Public Security Bureau, usually in close contact with him. This could paint him as a higher-ranked NOC who has the codename 'Rum'.
      • Second, Rumi Wakasa. She was hired as the deputy homeroom teacher for Teitan Elementary School Class 1-B (Conan's class). She is also blind in her right eye, rendering her prone to bouts of clumsiness. However, she has amazing deductive abilities and is quite cunning, as well as having signs of a more sinister side. She also appears to have something to do with the deaths of professional shogi player Kohji Haneda and wealthy American Amanda Hughes, who are on the list of APTX 4869 victims. Moreover, Kohji's dying message 'P T ON' can be solved as 'ASACA RUM' (W(AKASA) RUM(I)), which is possibly subverted by the alternative answer of 'CARASUMA', the Boss' real name, Renya Karasuma.
      • Third, Kanenori Wakita, a sushi waiter at Beika Iroha Sushi. He wears medical gauze over his injured left eye which he expects to fully heal so he can work at the sushi counter. His workplace is a favourite hangout spot of Kogoro Mouri. He seems to fit all the various descriptions of Rum that have been given, and stands out from the other two in that he hasn't met Shiho as Haibara yet and has an injured left eye instead of an injured right eye. As a bonus, Rum tends to use the English phrase 'Time is money' in text messages, whose Japanese Romanized form is 'Toki wa kane nari', an anagram for 'Kanenori Wakita'. People in the Pantheon, as well as the fanbase in general, have less verifiable information on Wakita in comparison to Kuroda and Wakasa, further painting him as suspicious.
      • Ever since the creator himself confirmed that Rum is one of the three, investigations have been stepped up a notch in order to nab him and thus lead them to the Boss.
    • Some paranoid deities who forget that Rum is from the Detective Conan universe have Nick Fury at the top of their suspect list, since he is a chief spy in the Pantheon, has a lot of say in the GUAG's intelligence affairs and shares a sub-house with Conan. He bristles at this statement, vowing that neither he nor S.H.I.E.L.D. will be infiltrated ever again. He learns from his mistakes.
    • As a precautionary measure, all three suspects have been ascended to the Pantheon under the grounds of 'special consideration' and are heavily monitored by the House of Justice. Superintendent Kuroda has been drafted to serve in the Pantheon's police force as an intelligence officer, but is kept clear of any investigations overtly related to the Organization.
    • Known to have a special grudge against the V.F.D. (see above).
  • Ultimately, the Organization's penchant for silencing those who know about them is terrifyingly apparent, and if you're reading this, it's probably already too late... (gun cock)
  • You know too much. Sayonara. (gunshot)

    Bluebeard 
Bluebeard, Unholy Wife Killer
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bluebeard_3.jpg
  • Lesser God.
  • Symbol: Crossed katanas over a Sapphire Guard cape
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Serial Killer, Beard of Evil Faux Affably Evil, Wicked Cultured, The Sociopath
  • Domains: Evil, Murder, Hail, Charm, Nobility
  • Allies: Hans Westergard, Gilles de Rais, Sideshow Bob, Ramsay Bolton
  • Opposed by: All Couples Subhouses, Emily, Anna, Elsa, Scheherazade, Bart Simpson, Marge Simpson
  • Fears: Amélie Lacroix/Widowmaker, Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Bloody Mary
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Bigsby Wolf, Snow White
  • Special Relationship: Charlie Chaplin, King Henry VIII
  • Many in the couples subhouses talk of a dangerous spouse. Only known by the color of his beard, he is said to be charismatic in the public eye. Yet behind the scenes, he has a tendency to kill the wives he marries. As if that wasn't enough, he is fond of keeping his quarries in a door he keeps locked. It took the curiosity of one wife to expose his operation and end his scheme once and for all. Or that was what people thought. Reports sprang out that he hooked up with Charlotte LaBouff. Several Disney characters put a stop to it before they were intimate, but it was clear the man was here to Stay. Bluebeard has arrived in the Pantheon and he is here to stay.
  • The subhouses of Couples Archetypes, Couples Orientation and Couples Relationships were quick to ban him from their lands. Not even the evil deities there want to be associated with a man who desecrates the concept of their faiths.
  • There are a number of victims of his followers as well as admirers of his work who hoped to follow his footsteps.
    • Probably the most famous example at the moment was the story of Hans and Anna. Prince Hans hoped to use Bluebeard's playbook to wed his way into the House of Arendelle. Thankfully, the power of sisterly loved thwarted those plans and sent him packing. Regardless, Hans felt honored to meet the man who inspired him to carry out his plot.
    • Emily's case was unique in that her husband succeeded. She remains dead, and Barks would have gotten away with it if she had not returned to the town as a zombie. Barks remains dead, but is now a follower of the notorious serial killer.
  • The characters from Fables were in an odd position. They know a version of him who has reformed... or at least in under the impression of reforming. He even aids Bigby and Snow White on occasion. Even then, they remain wary of helping the man, and they are even less inclined to help the more sinister version.
  • To his surprise, he found another Frenchman who was impressed with his work. In fact, the man claimed that he was the inspiration of the fairy tale. Gilles de Rais may focus on killing children, but he was motivated by the death of Jeanne d'Arc, a woman he cared greatly for. With her death, he turned to killing multiple people before being executed. Gilles met with Bluebeard in secret, expressing his support in case he wants to resume his old ways.
  • It was no surprise that Sideshow Bob was singing praises for Bluebeard upon his ascension. He was even inspired enough to attempt the same thing on Marge's sister. He would have succeeded if not for the intuition of Bart. Neither member of the Simpsons family was happy with the arrival of Bluebeard.
  • Besides his more well-known trait of Flaying Alive his victims, Ramsay Bolton also had a habit of killing off his wives. Yet he wouldn't call his acts callous, blaming the wives for their misfortunes. He figured the same situation happened regarding Bluebeard's many wives.
  • Bluebeard was ready to face opposition to those who were against his killer ways. What he wasn't expecting was finding wives who have done the same to their husbands. The one he fears the most is literally codenamed the Black Widow. Natasha herself confirms that she has been spying on the man ever since he arrived at the Pantheon. She has made clear that if Bluebeard makes a move on someone, he would have to answer to her.
    • He also makes sure to check his widow for any sniper rounds from the Widowmaker... even though she is far less likely to target him. In fact, Amelie felt the need to kill her husband to be liberating. She is more likely to thank him for the idea... though this may change depending on whether Bluebeard become her latest hit.
  • There was one wife who escape death in a way that intrigued him. Scheherazade managed to placate her husband through a series of stories that ended in Cliffhangers. She doubts such a strategy would work on a cold-blooded killer like Bluebeard and has no intention of trying to redeem him.
  • Bluebeard thought he had a perfect mark in a wedding dress. The woman was desperate to find some to confess her love with and she had plenty of money on her account as well. There was just one problem; the women's desire for true love became an obsession. Her insistence in staying with her at all times grated his nerves. When he decided to cut things short, he was in for a rude awakening. The person he was with was the notorious Bloody Mary, and she was far more of a handle to kill than he could have imagined. It wasn't long before she mowed him down with her vehicle Spectre.
  • Was surprised to see that someone in the Pantheon actually acted on a character based on him. That person was Charlie Chaplin and Bluebeard wanted to commend the actor on the performance. Chaplin would have none of it. The only reason he played a serial killer was to show his disdain for the countries who killed millions at war. That didn't make Bluebeard's murders any less hideous to him.
  • Bluebeard was met with an odd guest one day: King Henry VIII. Instead of berating him, the king walked in for answers. He wondered if Bluebeard's murders have been because he was unsatisfied with his wives and if Bluebeard could ever find someone he would stay for the rest of his life. It was a question Bluebeard wasn't ready to answer at the time, so he saw the king off. While Bluebeard had been motivated by the money, he does wonder if he was capable of settling down with someone.

  • Opposes: Jack the Ripper, Hannibal Lecter
  • Conflicting Opinion on: Jason Todd
  • Uneasy Alliance: Rem
  • Feared by: Dexter
  • Originally switching between Hannibal Lecter and Jack the Ripper (who competed for the title God of Serial Killers), Dexter hoped to to use his divine powers to kill them both. Using the dispute to cause the two gods to feud with each other, he hoped that the two would face one last time to the death. Then, he can swoop in and finish off the weakened victor. Unfortunately, he underestimated Hannibal's cunning and the two turned on him instead. After a vicious thrashing, the two gods stripped him of his divine power and left him for dead, with the Ripper taking the Serial Killer title. Luck would befall on him as he did not die that day. Instead, he woke up at the gates of the Pantheon, rising up himself as the God of Serial-Killer Killers.
  • He did not get the amount of followers he thought he'd get, as his series fell out in favor due to Seasonal Rot. Luckily, it wasn't due to his own failings and thus avoided being placed in The Fallen.
  • Few gods would suspect that a serial killer would have such a neat and tidy temple. Most deities think he's just a minor detective in the House of Justice. And yet it is all a ruse: he makes other gods think of him as a normal man. That all changes when ventures off at night, luring criminals away to torture and eventually kill them. Some gods would say his actions would be downright evil if not for his targets.
    • However, he is wary for the arrival of a certain Sergeant that nearly did him in when he was a mortal. Some gods say one can always make him fidget whenever he hears this phrase
  • Bad guys should NOT by any circumstances mistake him for the Boy Genius over in the House of Technology. Anyone who would want to do harm to the boy will receive an extra-painful torture session. The kid Dexter thinks his namesake is absolutely terrifying.
  • Looks to the Punisher as a stalwart ally due to similar philosophies in dealing with bad guys. It's not uncommon seeing the two together to take down mobsters.
  • Is absolutely despised by Batman. A staunch opponent of killing criminals, he is not fooled in the least by his facade. It doesn't help that Dexter goes after many of his rogues gallery. It really says something when he sometimes teams up with the Joker to stop him.
  • One would think that he would be in good terms with fellow criminal killer Light, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Both accuse the other of overstepping their bounds and strive to kill the other. While Light does not have Dexter's full name, the later's has not been able to track down the former's whereabouts.
  • There is some confusion as to whether Dexter wants to team up with Jason Todd or kill him himself. On the one hand, the Red Hood's style fits him well. On the other hand, his initial resurrection killed quite of few innocent people. Dexter decided to let him be for now.
  • Is surprisingly nice with children. It helps that most do not know of his true dealings. It's that reason that Stringtrap is among his top priorities to slay.
    • Is also distraught that children themselves are capable of such evil. An encounter with Hansel and Gretel caught him off guard, barely escaping with his life. He's now ready to deal with the creepy twins, even if it means putting them down for good.
  • Despite disliking the methods, Dexter knows better than to mess with most assassins in the pantheon such as Ezio and Strider. But at least one assassin took interest to taking him out. While he was resting in his innocent persona, he was attacked by a knife-throwing assassin. Luckily, he managed to fend her off and identified his assailant. Turns out Katarina was hired to kill him, most likely hired by the GUAE. Every know and then the two face off once more, usually with Dexter escaping.
  • Not everyone gets scared when they find out about his hobby. When he stabbed a couple of pedophiles after Kevin McCallister, he gained favor from the God of Booby Trap Warfare. Dexter has made it clear that anyone who dare messes with the kid would get a slow, painful death.
  • Rumor has it that the Jigsaw Killer is preparing a diabolical trap specifically for Dexter. He was rather interested with the man's hobbies and hopes to use his urges against him.
  • One of the first gods to deduct that Dexter's not who he seems was Henry Jekyll, much to the former's surprise. It wasn't until he tracked down the cause of a ruffling of civilians that he found out why. After an intense battle with Hyde, he managed to follow the brute and he him transform to his meeker form. Though he could have killed him despite his injuries, Dexter decided to let him go, seeing to much of himself in the scientist. However, there is no doubt the The Bay Harbor Butcher will keep an eye on his alter ego.
  • He has also been approached by Rem, upon hearing of how similar he was to Light, to be asked to spare Misa if he comes across her. It wasn't until he heard about why she did what she did with Light that he fully understood her situation, and agreed to at least put her at the very bottom of her "to kill" list, which Rem accepted. Upon hearing more about Dexter himself, Rem also began to pity him, and has agreed to keep close tabs on him, talking about who really deserves to die here. While she is uneasy, as he was Faking the Dead to escape into the wild to keep his loved ones safe from his killing urges, she is growing more trusting of her than she is to Light.

  • Conflicting Opinion on: Lady Macbeth
  • She is a popular model and diva, very bubbly in personality. Underneath this, however, is a tragic Serial Killer. Misa was broken by watching her family murdered in front of her eyes in an armed robbery. The killers' trial constantly stalled, so when Light Yagami(the first Kira) offed them she came to worship the man. Gaining her own Death Note, she'd act as Kira, getting the attention of the original. She would become Light's Dark Mistress, and an integral part of his gambits. Though having Undying Loyalty towards Light, she will protest against Light thinking of adding any family members to his name. She also isn't too comfortable with the idea of writing someone in the Death Note to die in front of their family.
  • Though the first Kira rip-off, she's not the only example. The third Kira, Kyosuke Higuchi, is a repulsive figure who killed to further his business and was part of Light's gambit. The fourth Kira, Teru Mikami, is even more devoted to Light and the spirit of his work. Finally, there's the fifth Kira, whose identity was never revealed and gave what he believed was Mercy Kills to the old, infirmed and suicidal before offing himself.
  • Rem was absolutely ecstatic to learn that her beloved Misa had ascended to the pantheon, and is trying to persuade her not to follow Light Yagami. So far, no success whatsoever.
  • Used to be a follower of Waylon Smithers, mainly out of necessity so she could get closer to Light. Though she has no idea why he'd be interested in Mr. Burns, she does wish for the best in his efforts. Mr. Smithers appreciates it, but would rather not associate himself with a serial killer. Can easily understand where Barney Stinson is coming from, and is trying to get him to be a PR campaign for Kira.
  • She doesn't think much of her own followers; the Yorkshire Ripper is a complete scumbag to her, and while she feels bad for Roy Burns, she thinks he's focusing on the wrong kind of scum.
  • She confused Setsuna F Seiei for Light Yagami, as they sound really similar. The two weren't interested in one another, but Misa did pity him a whole lot for his Dark and Troubled Past. Setsuna wants nothing to do with the Death Note.
  • She's naturally happy to be part of the House of Crime, but for the time she's putting up a facade to be an inside woman. Through her and Light Yagami, Misa plans to destroy that her own house from the inside out. She's aware that if she's the only person left the House of Crime will collapse and she'll be Killed Off for Real, but as always will give her life to further Kira's cause.
  • She's trying to make Light the new head of the House of Justice. None of the good-aligned members of said house are letting her in. In particular, she doesn't like Gene Hunt as his tactics remind her of the time she was held captive. She immediately joined the Grand United Alliance of Law after learning that Light Yagami was there. Sidney Prescott does not like her, as she's faced off copycat killers of her own.
  • Is considered somewhat of a ditz due to her childish, hyperactive and impulsive behavior. That being said, she's not actually stupid and can be pretty smart at times (such as tricking Kyosuke Higuchi), but compared to the brilliant Light and L she does come off as dumb. This peppy attitude led her to become friends with Excel, who was interested in Kira's promise of a better world.
  • While she's really nice when she's not killing, she can get really nasty when jealous. In the pantheon, she's really envious towards Medea and Souchirou Kuzuki for being villains in a happy and loving relationship. She can get where Kotonoha Katsura is coming from. Is aware of the shipping between Light and L. She doesn't get it and hopes it's nothing but subtext so that she has a chance with Light.
  • Spends much of her time in the House of Music and Costumes, due to her job as a model and actress. She's also a singer, however sounds rather off so she hasn't gotten that far in the former house. She's engaging in a rivalry with Jessica Rabbit. Once got into trouble with Jervis Tetch, who kidnapped her and dressed her up like Alice.
  • Thanks to the Shinigami Eyes, Misa is able to see the name and lifespan of others. The downside is that it halves her lifespan, which she's done twice. The impermanence of death in the pantheon means she can make the deal as many times as she wants without worry, though it's a double-edged sword for her and Light as the same impermanence diminishes the Death Note.
  • The Pantheon is not the only time Misa has cheated death, as she's been Spared by the Adaptation on a number of occasions. Though they have also been a double-edged sword as she's gone through many a Death by Adaptation as well.
  • Though Harley Quinn is a criminal, Misa sees her as an exception to the rule and a good friend. Being a blond, perky Dark Mistress to a criminal mastermind, they can easily sympathize with each other. She is working with Poison Ivy to eliminate her obsession with the Joker and get rid of her. Due to her Shinigami Eyes, the Joker tries to avoid any contact with either her or Light.
    • Shares a friendship with Chianti of the Black Organization on account of Chianti being unnerved by Harley's constantly changing sides.
  • As her own parents were murdered in front of her, she can get where Seras is coming from. Seras is sympathetic, however, ultimately regards her as a threat due to being one of the Kiras. She's not entirely sure what to think of Lady Macbeth; Light doesn't trust her and feels she's too manipulative over Macbeth, but understands her position and desire to help her husband.

  • In the Pantheon there's always something going on. From the Pantheonic Wars to the general drama between its denizens, there's a lot to cover. Overshadowed by the absurd escapades are a spree of Mook killings which progressively get more gruesome, often with messages in bloody writing from the killer themselves talking about how a third party had forced them. One comment by a jaded if a bit arrogant detective noted the killings are "a hopeless cry for attention in a place that's weird as it can get". It wasn't until a victim was found completely eviscerated in a closed cell within the House of Justice that the authorities decided to take action. Members from the House of Slaughter claim responsibility which convinced some, but investigations continued. More followed soon after, one mutilation in the House of Food and another in the House of Travel, both within rooms that aren't broken into. The traits of the killer are as follows: Someone who craves attention and who is capable of tricking people into letting them in.
    • Looking over the facts, Kyoko Kirigiri connected it to the arrogant detective from before, who was suspiciously very interested in the mutilations. When looking over his history, this same detective was also notable for incompetency and misconduct along with gunning down gangsters occasionally. After bringing it up, authorities decided to try and track down this detective who was in the House of Crime, appearing to have been trying to hide. A shootout between the detective and the authorities would of followed soon after had not the Court of Gods intervened and decided to ascend the detective, for his actions a serial killer cop in here and back in '90s Miami. Manny Pardo aka the Miami Mutilator has ascended to the Pantheon.
      • Pardo revealed that he came to the Pantheon not long after the events that took place in Miami, which ended with his death via nuking after barricading his own home in fear of being found out by the police. After that, he simply blended in with the Pantheon's police force and laid low until now. The killings were done for attention, but while his crimes went unnoticed in Miami he got his wish within the Pantheon through deification.
  • Pardo's in a bit of a weird spot due to his deification: As a Killer Cop, he has a place within the House of Justice and the House of Crime. Much of the former's denizens really don't like him, considering him a disgrace to the badge but aren't willing to act unless he actually starts trouble. The latter doesn't consider him trustworthy either, since they know he's perfectly willing to off them if it means more fame and doesn't seem to be that type of corrupt officer. That said, Pardo sticks with gunning down criminals out of some paranoia of the more powerful deities here, as much as he doesn't show it.
    • Robocop and Commissioner Gordon have worked alongside him on occasion, though both men have little good to say about him. At the very least, that reputation of incompetency can disappear if given the chance, like storming into a hideout. But of course, Judge Dredd really doesn't like him. The fact that Pardo, of all people, has a place here really didn't sit well for the Judge.
    "Not my fault you take so long to do your jobs. The Pantheon's just like Miami at the end of the day, so you have to act fast."
    • Kirigiri, Chie, and Naoto outright voice their enmity towards the Detective with the latter being reminded of Adachi's actions (Adachi himself doesn't pay the Mutilator any mind, though). Pardo isn't exactly fond of the Former Ultimate Detective either considering he ruined his plots prior to ascension and considers Chie and Naoto a nuisance.
    "I'm not your receptionist. If you have a problem, take it to the Protectors of Justice or the Court of Gods. It saves us both the trouble. Now get out of my face."
    • That said, he watches his tongue around Makoto Niijima and Goro Akechi since both are perfectly capable of dealing with him through the Metaverse whether it's a Change of Heart or a Mental Shutdown. He just needs to divert the heat off of him somehow. Shouldn't be too hard, there's a lot of opportunities in this place. All he has to do is let them meet with some vile deity out here and watch from there.
    • Considering Big Band almost got wasted by corrupt cops, he has nothing good to say about him either, though Manny clarified that at least he's more likely to gun down criminals than work with them. There was some indication he wanted to do something about the return of The Mafia had the Son not get high off his own product and destroy his gang and then himself. He'd sooner drop dead than be some thug's confidant.
    • As someone who's all to familiar with corrupt cops given his experience with C.R.A.S.H., CJ has no sympathies for Pardo, and will not hesitate to cap him should he get the chance. The Detective just sees him as another punk, and ignores him should he stay out of his way.
  • Why commit those murders for attention? Well, besides that it stems of envy from the Masked Killings or being cohered into doing so by "them", there really isn't a shown motive as to why. For context, Richard, an entity that's shown to be very analytical of any situation he's presented with, doesn't know why he did what he did. Manny has no intention of revealing anything. If it keeps a spotlight on him, he is under no obligation to put this mystery to bed.
    • And speaking of "them", he avoids the Nestene Consciousness like the plague as well as any other dummy in the Pantheon. Doesn't matter who they are, he stays away. Similarly, he avoids those associated with nuclear weaponry, or things similar to that. Though he's not necessarily a target that could warrant such wrath.
  • Has a dim view on those who'd crave attention at all costs as Tony found out the hard way, being gunned down despite surrendering. Pretty rich coming from a guy who desperately wanted for his case to be newsworthy, which everyone brings up a lot, and it doesn't help he sometimes badgers the members of the House of Investigative Work to write about him. But don't expect him to admit to those flaws anytime soon. He's not on good terms with Big Smoke because of this, having fell to his own ambitions back in San Andreas.
    "It's no surprise that's what happens to thugs like you. You never learn…"
    • Regarding those individuals imitating him and his Attention Whore tendencies, though, he pays them no mind. Not even their insistence that he's still out to "catch" the Miami Mutilator. Some even go as far to say that all of the events back in his world went something like this. Aside from that reminder of him being nuked, he took it pretty well.
  • "Been a stressful day. You wouldn't believe what they have me doing…"
