King Winterbolt, God of Usurping Santa
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His scepter
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Evil Is Deathly Cold, Knight of Cerebus, The Most Despicable Rankin/Bass Foe, Seeks to Take Santa's Place as Ruler of the North Pole, Big Bad, Beard of Evil, Master of Blizzards and Cold, Former Magical Lord of the North Pole, Faux Affably Evil, Transflormation
  • Domains: Cold, Evil, The North Pole, Magic, Cruelty
  • Allies: Princess Morbucks, Melkor, Mad King Thorn, Jack O'Lantern, Turles, Oogie Boogie, Jadis, Kaldr
  • Enemies: All non-evil members of the House of Celebration (especially all versions of Santa), everyone who saved Christmas, Rudolph, The Miser Brothers, Olaf, Queen Elsa, Jack Frost, Aslan, Treebeard, Trevenant, Exdeath, Ice King, Finn and Jake, Mordecai and Rigby
  • Opposed by: Scrooges and grinches who turn over a new leaf
  • Avoids: The Hall of Fire and Heat
  • Before Santa Claus, Winterbolt ruled the North Pole with an iron fist. He was defeated by the Northern Lights who cast him into a deep sleep, only to wake up centuries later when Santa Claus had become the new head of the North Pole. Infuriated, Winterbolt sought to cast Santa down and usurp his place to get what was to him his rightful position as king once more.
  • Of the Rankin-Bass villains, he stands out as the most irredeemable and ruthless. Never being reformed or being remotely sympathetic, Winterbolt would pull strings to try and ruin Rudolph's life by tricking him into using his nose for evil, and is willing to kill Frosty. He is opposed by anyone who loves Christmas.
  • Hates all versions of Santa Claus and anyone working with him. He doesn't even like Robot Santa Claus, though this is mainly because Robot Santa Claus doesn't take kindly to those who'd threaten other Santas. He also considers Ebenezer Scrooge and the Grinch to be failures since they turned over a new leaf rather than continuing to be Christmas villains.
  • When first hearing about Jack Skellington, he though he might be a potential ally. However it was clear Jack only wanted to "help" Christmas in his own way and wasn't evil. Jack Skellington opposed him for wanting to destroy Christmas and take out Santa, adding another holiday that Winterbolt doesn't like.
  • Oogie Boogies had a very different view on Winterbolt. Wanting to take over the different holidays and bring back Bug Day, Winterbolt was the perfect ally for his war on the holidays. The two have joined to destroy all the holidays and Winterbolt can become ruler of the North Pole once more.
  • His newfound opposition towards Jack Skellington has got him the favor of Mad King Thorn and Jack O'Lantern, in hopes of expanding their evil across the holidays. Turles was jubilant to see a fellow foe of Santa, and the two also joined forces. He saw Princess Morbuck's attempt to usurp Santa, and has allied with her for it. And Melkor, being the irredeemable Satanic Archetype he is, liked Winterbolt for what he represented and an ice-themed evil sorcerer works for him.
  • Spends most of his time in the Hall of Ice and Cold, the cold making him feel at home. There, he would meet up with Kaldr. His goals of spreading cold and ice throughout the world was something that really appealed to him. As did Jadis' "winter without a Christmas". Gotten a number of heroic ice characters like Queen Elsa and Olaf on his shit-list.
  • Winterbolt's ultimate fate was to be turned into a tree, after his scepter was destroyed. He has come to hate all tree folk for this traumatizing experience, regardless of alignment. He isn't too fond of anything related to fire and heat either, given his wintry powers.
  • Sought to trick the Ice King into doing his bidding and spread blizzards everywhere, along with trying to steal the Ice Crown. Finn and Jake realized what was going on, and consider him a much wickeder version of Ice King even at his worst. Winterbolt is ignorant of its true dark power, or that things have changed with Simon Petrikov and the crown.

The Grinch, The God Who Hated Christmas and Tried to Steal it

  • The Grinch used to hate Christmas. Nobody knew why he hated it. It could be his head wasn't screwed on just right. It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight. But some think that the most likely reason of all, may have been that his heart was two sizes too small. Either way, tired of the Whos' jovial activities and the noise, noise, noise, NOISE, The Grinch decided to steal their Christmas. However, after seeing the Whos celebrating with no gifts, The Grinch's heart warmed and grew three sizes that day.
  • As stated, no one really knows why the Grinch hated Christmas. There was one version that did give a possible reason. As a little Grinch living in Whoville, he didn't care all that much about Christmas. Though, he was willing to get in to the Holiday spirit for a girl he had a crush on. Unfortunately, an incident with a shaving mishap and being humiliated at school, made the Grinch hate Christmas even more and the Whos who celebrated it.
  • There are some in the pantheon who believe that the Grinch may have turned bad again. This is because of two accounts of him terrorizing the Whos and Cat in the Hat. Others think those incidents happen before he turned good. Another theory is that they may not be the same Grinch and it was an entirely different Grinch. So far, Grinch has been behaving himself.
  • While The Grinch does enjoy the holiday festivities, he still hates noise, noise, noise. Some believe hearing certain sounds will turn him bad. He tries to stay away from certain parts of the pantheon so it won't happen.
  • His relationship with Nostalgia Critic is a bit complicated. While NC is ok with his animated counterpart, he really hates his movie counterpart as he finds him annoying. The Grinch for his part doesn't really care all that much.
    • Speaking of his two counterparts, The Grinch's personality often shifts between the two. His animated counterpart is a bit more calm compared to his movie self, who is more wacky.
  • Dogs don't like him. This is because of his mistreatment of his dog Max. Even if he started to be nice to him, it only happen in the end of his story. And there was that other version that actually left the Grinch because of being mistreated.
  • Found out that his stealing Christmas has been done by others, with different variations on what is being stolen. Even the Angry Video Game Nerd got in on the act. In this case, he stole all the good games and replaced them with crappy ones. The Grinch expressed relief that there weren't any awful games about him. Well, depending on one's views...
  • To prove that certain deities would rather deal with a seasick crocodile then the Grinch, some have given both Sobek and Renekton seasickness. Most regretted that choice.
  • While its unknown if he has spiders in his brain, it is known that he has termites in his smile. Gross.
  • Has been spotted digging through the trash of the pantheon's residents. Old habits die hard. More often then not, he uses it to build stuff for his temple.
  • Is one of the few deities to get along with the more grumpy deities like Grumpy Bear, Grouchy Smurf and Dan since he too can get grumpy.
  • Gets along very well with Ebenezer Scrooge. This is because both hated Christmas but then started to love it. Deities make fun that the two are so close that they started to sound the same.
  • One time, the Grinch attempted his most nefarious deed yet: to leak the entire Smash roster. Fortunately, his plans were foiled with the unexpected appearance of Incineroar. He's now thinking of a plan to get revenge on the wrestler.

    Tree Gelbman 
Theresa "Tree" Gelbman, Goddess of Terrible Birthdays (Crazy White Girl)
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: A poisoned cupcake atop her Dumpstaphunk shirt
  • Theme: "Stayin' Alive" by Lizzo
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, sometimes Chaotic Good (priorly Neutral Evil)
  • Portfolio: Getting Slaughtered on Her Birthday Over and Over, Hard-Work Montage Where She Repeatedly Dies In Funny Ways, Continuing is Painful, Broken Bird, Becoming Stronger and Kinder Through Her Loops
  • Domains: Death, Time Travel, Birthdays, Black Comedy
  • Herald: Carter Davis
  • High Priestess: Nadia Vulvokov
  • Allies: Phil Connors, Major William Cage, Laurie Strode, Sidney Prescott, Sarah Connor, Serge, Marty McFly and Doc Brown, Subaru Natsuki
  • Enemies: All Slasher Film villains, Airy, Mercurius, Libby Smith
  • Tree Gelbman was a snooty, unpleasant and uncaring sorority sister before being killed on her birthday, and somehow awakening that same morning again. By experiencing this deadly birthday repeatedly, in the meantime becoming a better person, she learned who wanted to kill her and dispatched the assassin, which helped her get rid of the time loop. And after she again was trapped in a deadly cycle during her birthday (which was actually in an Alternate Timeline), the Pantheon thought she deserved an ascension for going through all this misery, even letting her boyfriend Carter come along as a herald so they'd finally have all the time possible together.
  • Given Tree revealed to never have seen Groundhog Day (or heard of Bill Murray, for that matter) or Back to the Future, Carter likes to show some movies to her in their off time lest she embarrasses herself in front of other deities. That being said, she briefly served as a follower to Phil Connors and they became friends for having faced similar ordeals (though Phil pities how Tree had someone out to kill her, even if both were bad people prior to their loops); and Marty and Doc introduced themselves to Tree even if she ignored their series to acknowledge her handling being trapped in an alternate timeline, and they are on good terms.
  • Even if her movie was a less traditional slasher, Tree instantly got the attention and respect of Laurie and Sidney for going from the bitch who is usually killed first to a person who isn't afraid to fight the murderer (and also because she had to die repeatedly to get there). All slasher villains also decided to target Tree feeling the Babyface Killer was weaksauce, with Sidney's archnemes(e)s Ghostface taking particular joy in tormenting her.
  • Has gotten along with Major Cage and Subaru Natsuki as they all experienced a time loop which had them repeatedly killed, while managing to become better fighters (and find love) along the way. Serge's experience with alternate timelines also made both bond, though Tree envies how he managed to seamlessly travel between them. And she managed to find much common ground with Sarah Connor, who was also stalked by a killer, grew to be a capable fighter as a result, and had weird time shenanigans to thank.
  • Airy and Mercury, who used or intended to create cycles for evil intents, instantly became disliked by Tree. Another one she fiercely opposes is Libby, for being an Alpha Bitch that would fit at home in her sorority (while also reminding Tree of how despicable she was prior to her deadly experience).
  • Though her second time in the loop revealed what caused the phenomenon, some of the mad scientists in the Pantheon want to poke and prod Tree just for shits and giggles. She's getting annoyed by it, almost as much as when someone decides to kill her and forces Tree to awaken in pain in Carter's bed.
  • Prefers to avoid the Hall of Alcohol if she's alone - repeatedly facing a nasty hangover from the wild night before combined with the pains of whatever just killed you traumatized Tree big time!
  • Pitied in the House of Family for how the death of her mother shook Tree enough for her to become a bitch - and how when offered a chance to live again with mom, Tree decided to just go back to her regular life with Carter.
  • While her temple is a recreation of some of Bayfield University's rooms, depictions of the Baby mascot are forbidden nearby, for the sake of not annoying Tree after two confrontations with the Babyface Killer. And troll deities who show up to her wearing that mask are far from welcome. Additionally, playing a certain Embarrassing Ringtone is practically begging for Tree to beat you, as she heard it enough for several lifetimes.
