    Mugen Yoguruma 
Mugen Yoguruma, Goddess of Distinguishing Giggling (The Shadow of Yog-Sothoth, Infinite Colour, Muu-chan, Kishishi Lady, (Fragment of) Yog-Sothoth)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mugen_blasterz.png
  • Greater Goddess, though might be closer to an Overdeity
  • Symbol: The Eye of Yog-Sothoth (a glowing yellow eye with a gear design)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Kishishishishishishi, Possesses the Eye of Yog-Sothoth, Keeps Her Left Eye Closed Due to That, Time Master, Space Master, Reality Warper, Has A Lot of Power And Little Sanity, Impossibly Cool Clothes
  • Domains: Laughter, Insanity, Powers, Cthulhu Mythos
  • Allies: Yog-Sothoth, Cthulhu, Azathoth, Shub-Niggurath, Nyarko, Cuuko, Hasta, Ato-ko Shirogane, Luhy Distone, Discord
  • Enemies: Nyarlathotep
  • There are many universes what the Tv Tropes, and such Trope Pantheons, has observed over. However, there are many what it hasn't covered over, was it due to inappropriate subjects or due to just not noticing them. As such, when an albino student with a medical eyepatch appeared in the Academy, no one really noticed the girl. However, as things went on, strange things started to happen, most notably with some of the students being drawn into creatures told in the works of H.P. Lovecraft. All while the students saying that they know the girl ages ago.
    • Eventually, the student with the eyepatch suddenly disappeared for a while, and things started to calm down. However, in House of Time and Space, some gods heard an odd "Kishishi" giggling somewhere where Yog-Sothoth "resides". And there the girl was, who then removed her disguise to show her true identity as Mugen Yoguruma, the Mage of Yog-Sothoth. Apparently it was easy for her to sneak into the Pantheon due to her work not being recognized here and started messing around with people's "fates" and such. Eventually, the Court of the Gods did take note of her giggling, and she was allowed to stay.
  • Mugen is a "Mage", a person who is infected by "Color", a type of corruption from the evil gods of Cthulhu Mythos (and some other monsters), corrupting the person's mind and turning them into monsters. Mugen was infected with the Color of Yog-Sothoth, gaining the ability to warp time and space. Though in reality, she might either be Yog-Sothoth, or at least a fragment of the true presence what might have died long ago.
  • Due to her background, she has varying relations with different gods and those inspired by the Lovecraftian lore.
    • Of course, her closest relationship is with Yog-Sothoth. That thing is certain. Though calling her one of his avatars or heralds might be inaccurate. Especially if one thinks that she is Yog-Sothoth (at least the Demonbane-verse's one), then it's like she is talking to itself.
    • She gets along with Cthulhu due to her being buddies with a Mage infected by Cthulhu's Color (or at least he had one of 13 artifacts who hold Color) and Azathoth as she worked her ass off to make sure that he would be brought back alive, which she was able to do thanks to Azana Hatsuni.
    • She really doesn't like Nyarlathotep, who she calls a "cheap imitation" of the actual deity, and is even more annoying than the Sphinx, saying that his "salvation" thing was more endearing than Nyarly's constant talk about humanity's darkness. The two of them play chess together, though, discussing stuff.
    • Her opinions on Hastur is bit ambiguous, though. She doesn't really care for him.
    • Even though she might not like Nyarly, she does like Nyarko, as she doesn't think everyone related to Nyarly is a bad person (like Chikage Narukami). This does extend to her buddies, as well.
  • With everything said that done, she seems to find The Old Gods mockery to the abominations they are supposedly based on, especially Yogg-Saron. The best thing is that she probably would get away from insulting them, as there is no way for them to corrupt her as she is too crazy for that. And even if they were to kill her, she can easily rewind time before the confrontation, carrying the knowledge that she made them mad.
  • Due to her unpredictable nature, some gods really want to lock her away. Too bad for them she can quite easily escape if she wants to. Fortunately, she is willing to go back to her prison if she wants to.
  • She is quite interested in the antics of LOL Rangers, Itazura Griefers and the Trollkaiger. While she hasn't really decided to which one to root for, she isn't planning to join the Trollkaiger due to Nyarly's icky tentacles being tied around it. If she would join, she would be called "Diamond Ranger"/"Itazura Diamond" note 
  • As the one who holds the fragment of the Necronomicon what has the spirit of the book, she can easily prevent anyone from using it if she so chooses, making her ironically the best guardian for it if it ever becomes a factor.
    • However, she seems to claim that she can only do it if its a genuine Necronomicon. When Ashley Williams asked her to seal away the one from his dimension for good, she said that the book actually is Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, a mimic of the real one, so she has no true power over it.
  • During the crossover battle between the Nitro+ characters, she sometimes lends a hand by using the "Fist of Yog-Sothoth" to erase all matter in certain areas... Including the people she is supposed to help. However, even though she has the role of Assist Character, she is deeply rooted to the events what took place.
    • Okay, calling her a "villain" might be wrong. You see, in one universe, Demonbane was able to become "Vortex Blaster" by absorbing the essence Glyu-Uho and finally break the dead heat between it and Azathoth to kill it, what would cause the destruction of every universe what do, did, would or wouldn't exist. However, as Mugen can stretch the instant to eternity, she used it to stretch out Azathoth's death so that she can gather the shattered pieces of Al Azif to create perfect copy of the Necronomicon to merge realities together while also taking reigns away from Another Blood who already had dwelled into universe fusing, have those in that reality to act out a "murder mystery" play note to create the Silver Key what can open any door in any point in time and space and then use the Shining Trapezohedron, what was inside Ouka, as the door to re-create the Ultimate Gate and give rebirth to Azathoth, thus bringing a new beginning to the macrocosm. So while she was playing everyone like puppets, she did it to save the existence of everyone. Not bad for an avatar of an evil god.
  • She seemed to have grown affection forwards Discord, as he knows how to use his powers to cause all sort of playful havoc. Discord does try to teach Mugen not to use her powers to bring serious harm to others, though whenever or not this will actually work is in question.

Lesser Gods

    Adam MacIntyre 
Adam MacIntyre, God of Dying While Laughing (Adam the Clown)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/adam_clown_5.jpg
  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: His chainsaws
  • Theme Song: Adam's Boss Theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Ax-Crazy, Dual-wields Chainsaws, Giggling Villain, Large Ham, Laughing Mad, Lightning Bruiser, Made of Iron, Monster Clown, Tragic Villain
  • Domains: Clowns, Chainsaws, Insanity, Acrobatics, Shows, Laughter
  • Allies: The Joker, Needless Kane, Pennywise the Dancing Clown, SCP-993, Kefka Palazzo, Dimentio, Champ, Piggsy, Leatherface
  • Enemies: Frank West, Nathan Drake, Billy, Ben Tennyson, Jack Cayman, Juliet Starling, Ash Williams, The House of Undead, Leon S. Kennedy, Simon Henriksson
  • Opposed by: Krusty the Clown, Ronald McDonald
  • Adam MacIntyre used to be just a regular mall clown, with a dedicated audience that loved him. That, until the Zombie Apocalypse hit his town and he witnessed his audience be devoured by the zombies (Implied to be mostly children), which drove him mad. Frank West was unfortunate enough to encounter him near the roller coaster, which Adam kept running so the zombies would be distracted but eventually he was defeated by Frank and died by being cut by his own chainsaws. All while laughing maniacally.
  • Ecstatic to meet a new audience to perform, the first thing he did was go to the House of Children and start juggling his chainsaws in front of a terrified crowd of kids. He was eventually kicked out, but Adam proved to be super troublesome to deal with that it took an entire group to just immobilize and then return to his temple.
  • Frank West is less than thrilled to learn that Adam has reached the pantheon and prefers to avoid him. Adam hasn't forgotten about him and while from time to time visit Frank for a "special show". It doesn't help that Frank considers him one of the toughest foes he ever faced.
  • Nathan Drake was terrified the moment he set eyes on Adam and because of accidentally bumping into him, Adam started chasing him. While there are plenty of clowns in the pantheon, Adam is the one that terrifies Nate the most after their deadly encounter.
    • Something similar happened with Billy, who once again was proven correct with his idea that all clowns are evil and want to destroy everyone. In an unexpected turn of events, Billy managed to fend off Adam by throwing oranges at him, one ending up hitting Adam in the face and accidentally he got cut by his chainsaws....again.
  • Turns out he wasn't the only clown of his brand as there were plenty of others like him. Pennywise was the first one to approach him given their similar appearances and thought that befriending Adam would aid him in his plans to feed on children. The Joker certainly finds him entertaining, if only because he finds Adam juggling his chainsaws to be impressive while Bobble the Clown has tried to convince Adam to be part of his show.
  • Other more saner clowns oppose Adam for his sheer insanity and how dangerous he is. Well, Ronald McDonald at least does, Krusty was very upset when Adam one upstaged him and actually did an entertaining show to his audience without harming any children. But he made sure to never tell one about that incident.
  • Yes, his Dual Wielding Chainsaws haven't gone unnoticed by other deities especially those who also use it for combat. Both Leatherface and Piggsy are good friends of Adam, probably because all three are deranged killer and psychopats and Adam even considers using them for his shows. Others like Jack Cayman, Ash Williams or Juliet Starling are impressed he uses two chainsaws at once but believe they are better fighters overall than him.
    • Then there are people like Leon Kennedy or Simon Henriksson that hate Adam because he reminds me of the chainsaw creatures they faced in the past and would rather avoid the clown entirely. Didn't help that Adam also is super durable like the enemies they have faced before.
  • While Adam might be a psychopathic clown, he still hates zombies and whenever he sees one he won't hesitate to attack them. He is actually fairly effective at killing most of them and often can be seen doing that in the House of Undead. Until one of the elite members kick him out anyway.
  • He is actually pretty smart for a crazy clown, as he was able to figure out that the zombies from his world were distracted by the roller coaster and usually in case a zombie outbreak occurs, he is usually very capable of fending them off. Of course, that doesn't mean that he still is very dangerous if provoked.
  • Apparently, he is able to control a small group of Servbots. The reason for that is because of a small button he has in his outfit with a servbot face in it, so that's why the follow him. Don't ask.
  • Can also be found in the House of Manners of Death.

    Carmine Prime 
Carmine Prime, God of Insane Laughter (Red of the Origin, Crimson Origins, Insanity & Pleasure)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/b3ca40040fe286aa4c8822f46f62d853.png
  • Theme song: Bad Surface
  • Lesser god
  • Alignment: Chaotic Insane
  • Symbol: A puddle of blood with a crystallised blood stalagmite
  • Portfolio: Laughing Mad, Literal Blood Knight, Cast from Hit Points, Ax-Crazy, Power Dyes Your Hair, White Hair, Black Heart, Red Eyes, Take Warning, Hair-Trigger Temper, Wild Card, Life Drain, Difficult, but Awesome
  • Domains: Insanity, Laughter, Blood, Combat
  • Allies: None really, he's too unpredictable for a lot of deities, there are some that share his insanity such as the Joker and Kefka Palazzo and lust for combat such as Augus and Kenpachi Zaraki
  • Enemies: Anyone that insults his Blood Spike, Esidisi, Jedah Dohma, Eliza
  • Opposed by: Just about everyone
  • Getting into a conversation with Carmine or even being anywhere near him is a really dumb thing to do because not only will he always get into a fight with you but he will also always start laughing for no reason other than just because he's insane.
    • Although he can be calmed down enough to the point where if someone does get into a fight with Carmine, he won't kill them.
  • Carmine got really pissed when he found out how much Potemkin and Faust Baldhead sound like him, you can probably guess what he did next.
  • There are well over a million ways to get into a fight with Carmine (hell, just existing will piss him off) but one of the quickest ways to get into a fight is to insult his EXS, Blood Spike as that's one of the few things he's actually proud of.
  • Carmine doesn't have any allies due to how insane he is, no gods can trust him to any extent. His only allies are those who are as insane as him or are as blood thirsty as him.
  • Carmine gets a kick out of challenging other deities who fight using their blood such as Jedah Dohma, Esidisi and Eliza. He also does it to prove who's the best at fighting with their blood.
  • When Carmine found out that Optimus Prime and Megatron thought he had some kind of relation to Optimus due to his name, lets just say the ensuing fight ended badly for both parties.
  • EVERYONE was astounded that he would be joining the clash between gods, as he requires a partner. Apparently, Ragna the Bloodedge, Kanji Tatsumi and Weiss Schnee are the best choices to fight alongside him, though the three of them are disgusted at his actions.

    Mandark 
Susan "Mandark" Astronomanov, God of Not-So Evil Laughs (Mr. Astronomanov, Executive Mandark, Overlord Mandark, Braindark)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mandark_324252_2465.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His round, black hair and his laughter.
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Arch-Enemy of Dexter, Evil Genius, Wants Dee Dee's affection, Lean and Mean, Affably Evil, Embarrassing First Name, Annoying and Non-Intimidating Laughter
  • Domains: Genius, Annoying, Laughter
  • Allies: Dr. Doom, Vlad Masters
  • Rivals: Dexter, Sniper, Mojo Jojo
  • Enemies: Cartman
  • "Love": Dee Dee
  • Odd Friendship: Michelangelo, Ned Flanders
  • Though some people may recognize Mandark for his genius and rivalry of another genius Dexter, many recognize him for his "iconic" laughter. HA HA HA! HA HA HA HA HA!
  • Upon his arrival, he tried to thwart his rival Dexter by being the better student, much like their first introduction which started their rivalry. Their intellects and technological prowess are essential equal.
  • People at first thought that Kardel Sharpeye has the most annoying laugh in the Pantheon, only to realize and found out that Mandark was even worse. At least you can shut Sniper up, but there's not much many would do to shut Mandark up. In fact, he spent an entire day laughing.
  • He managed to get along with the pious Ned Flanders due to both of them growing up with a hippie family and hated it.
    • Though he doesn't appreciate Cartman for his hatred toward hippies, as he just doesn't like the lifestyle of that life and is a man of science.
  • He practically fawns over for Dee Dee, to the point that he'll call off any rivalry and work together with Dexter if she is threatened. Of course, her destructive tendency is a nuisance with the relationship, if Dee Dee even likes him at all.
  • He manage to make an alliance with Viktor Doom because of their technological genius and burning hatred for their rivals. The two have practically vowed that one day that both Dee and Susan would be their's.
    • He also manage to ally himself with Vlad Masters since they are obsess with one woman and would do anything to do claim her. Though Mandark found a ghost to be very illogical in the realm of science.
  • Mandark views Mojo Jojo has another archrival in terms of both intellect and villainy, with Mandark looking at the monkey with laughter due to Dexter owning a monkey named Monkey.
    • Mandark also owns a duck named Ducky, who is secretly a supervillain and adversary of Monkey, Quackor.
  • Mandark surprising befriended Michelangelo since he befriended a surfer who saved his life in a surfing competition he entered to impress Dee Dee. He allowed the Turtle to ride on his in-door surfing machine.
  • In their most antagonistic rivalry, he desired Dexter's Neurotomic Protocore for world domination. This lead to him fighting against Dexter and several of his future selves in a battle for the future. They included a Mandark that was a controlling executive, another that was a knowledge-stealing Overlord, and one that was a brain in a jar.

    Naga 
Naga, Goddess of Aristocratic Laughter (The White Serpent, Princess Gracia Ul Naga Saillune, Nama)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0bc5d10d_1c41_4d56_8951_2bac8d8ab0ae.png
  • Theme Song: The White Serpent Naga
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A white Serpent
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: OHHH-HOHOHOHOHOHOHO!!!!, Stripperiffic, The Ditz, Having a large and bouncy bust, Freeze Arrow and Freeze Bullet, Being a heavy drinker
  • Domains: Magic, Water, Earth, Laughter
  • High Priestess: Kodachi Kuno
  • Followers: Renge Houshakuji, Nanami Kiryuu
  • Allies: Cana Alberona, Rylai, Satoko Houjou, Karin Kanzuki
  • Rivals: Lina Inverse (One-sided), the other Lina, Nanoha
  • Naga's ascension shook the Pantheon with a resounding "OHHHH-HOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO!!!!" This caused a great disturbance in the House of Beast, requiring the Beast taming trio to request assistance from the other houses. Many member of the other houses were likewise frightened, with Courage attempting to scream in fear, but drowned out by the laughter and Rincewind running in panic. Shizune and the House of Music were a few of the unaffected deities, with Shizune not being able to hear Naga and Elzam managing to override Naga with Trombe.
    • Naga's temple has subsequently been soundproofed due to the sheer volume of her laughter and its ability to scare small animals and old ladies.
  • Naga's first action was to march to Lina Inverse's temple and re-declared Lina as her rival/sidekick.
    • After hearing about someone who was named after her sidekick, Naga met this other Lina and declared a similar rivalry. This Lina began searching for Orchid Malevolence to silence Naga and declared her the "Second most annoying ice user I know."
  • Due to an incident where Naga was given ten clones and their combined laughter destroyed a minor villain, Naga was immediately put on the "Do Not Clone" list in the House of Technology.
  • Despite being extremely flaky, Naga is actually a talented and powerful sorceress capable of powerful White Magic and developing a continuous cascade of Freeze Arrows, but is not at the same level as Lina Inverse.
  • Once participated in a tournament for mages, where her laugh was found to be on the same level as Starlight Breaker. Nanoha is wary about this discovery.
  • Asuka is wary of Naga due to sounding like her abusive mother.
  • Is not to be confused with the Divine Dragon
  • As much as her laughter is very mind-scarring, apparently people preferred that over getting laughed by a certain pint-sized Sniper. However, both seems to be very immune to each others' laughter. Therefore, if they are in the same room and laughing together... BE VERY AFRAID

Quasideities

    Peppa Pig 
Peppa Pig, Goddess of Endings Where Everyone Heartily Laughs (Pippa Peg, alivebacon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/peppa_1.jpg
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A mud puddle
  • Theme Song: Peppa Pig intro
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Cheerful Child, Little Miss Snarker, Aloof Big Sister to George, Bratty Half-Pint, Everyone Went to School Together, Alliterative Names, Species Surnames, *Oink, oink*
  • Domains: Pigs, Youth, Naming, Endings

  • Allies: Curious George, The Cutie Mark Crusaders, Pinkie Pie, Yotsuba Koiwai, Chiyo Mihama, Haruhi Suzumiya, Mr. Rogers, Babe, Porky Pig, Babar, Pumba, Lucina, Dora, Otis
  • Enemies: Napoleon, Dag
  • On good terms with: The House of Arthropods and Prehistoric Beasts
  • Peppa Pig is a young anthropomorphic pig girl who lives in a village full of other animal friends. She lives with her parents and her little brother George and she likes to visit places and learn new things. One such place was the Pantheon, having paid a visit here with her family and she liked it so much that she asked the Court if she could have a temple for her. Given the tendency of her show to end with everyone having a good laugh after the episode is ending, she was given a title for that.
  • Given her young age and tendency to get herself into all sorts of trouble, she resides with her family although officially Peppa is the official deity. She is given free range by her parents to do whatever she likes and along George they tend to explore the pantheon to their heart's content.
  • Peppa was welcomed to the pantheon by a huge party organized by Pinkie Pie and Rarity to celebrate her ascension. It was meant to be a fancy tea party with all her new friends, which stressed Rarity since the likes of the Cutie Mark Crusaders and Yotsuba couldn't keep etiquette. Peppa decided to just ditch the fancy part (and even Rarity agreed that it was getting out of hand) and she, Pinkie Pie, the CMC, Yotsuba and Chiyo decided to go to play in a muddy puddle. Why? Because according to Peppa, everyone likes muddy puddles.
    All: Hahahahahaha!
  • Apparently, she likes Haruhi Suzumiya. This surprised a lot of people given that she is very young and from Britain. Haruhi appreciated the gesture and wanted to invite Peppa to the S.O.S. Brigade but Peppa found it boring and decided to do something else. They are still good friends otherwise.
  • She discovered that there were more pigs around the pantheon like her and so she set off to find them. She immediately befriended Babe who while she found it strange to see him standing on four feet, she nonetheless had a blast jumping with him on muddy puddles. Likewise, she gets along great with Porky Pig although Peppa tends to find his stutter funny. While not a Pig, Pumba was happy to teach Peppa the ways of the "Hakuna Matata".
    • That said, not all pigs turned out to be friendly. Peppa was warned to avoid Napoleon at all costs but said warning fell on deaf ears and Peppa ended up looking for Napoleon anyway. Once he met him, she found him quite scary and he tried to win her over, tried to teach him how things are supposed to work on his world and invite Peppa since after all, she walks on two feet. Thankfully, her parents came and took her away before Napoleon did anything to her.
  • Peppa is quite curious and often asks the adult deities about several things she hasn't seen in her own world. Her curiosity eventually led her to Curious George, who found Peppa to be quite perplexing. Together they tend to travel the safer parts of the pantheon looking to learn new things and the first thing Peppa taught the little monkey is how fun is to play in muddy puddles.
  • Often hangs around Mr. Rogers and Babar, both of whom Peppa adores. The former because of how friendly and approachable he is and her stories never bore her. The latter because he reminds him of her friend Emily Elephant and her family and also belonging to a world full of animal people. Dora also has invited Peppa to join Dora in her adventures.
  • Her little brother George loves dinosaurs and when he heard that there was a house full of them, he demanded Peppa to take him there. Peppa initially had no interest and it took George crying for an hour before she relented. They were escorted by The Raptor Pack so the two wouldn't get into trouble and thankfully everything went well for the two little piggies.
    • Peppa is also friends with spiders. In a rather unusual case for a young child, she doesn't find them scary but really friendly. Well at least her spider friend she met back in her home was, the other athropods weren't that friendly looking but Muffet instantly smothered Peppa the second she heard she supported spiders and gave her a tour through the house.
  • For some strange reason, some people have discovered that Lucina was wrongly attributed to being Peppa's Arch-Enemy. Shortly after the latter's ascension, Lucina went to clear up the misconception and she ended up befriending Peppa and her family.
  • She released a music album titled "My First Album" and it received mixed reviews in the pantheon. It was also brought to Peppa's attention that she is a "Gangsta" icon for some reason after one time she allegedly played grown up music.
  • There was one time where Peppa was almost eaten by Dag after he tried to lure her into her temple promising her candy. Thankfully, Otis the cow was there to prevent Dag from eating Peppa and since then her family has been grateful for saving Peppa's life.
  • Can also be found at Beginnings & Endings.
