Leadership

The House of Leadership is a small house, but it is one of the most important of them all. Leadership is the quality of being able to take control of forces and let them follow through tough times. The deities here may not have the sheer power or money as other Gods have, but their charisma and ability to take charge is what makes them some of the deadliest.

Ever since the Court ruled it as such, the Grand United Alliance Faction Leaders (Cosmos, Melkor, YHVH and Lucifer) are no longer part of this House, but still retain honorary membership.

  • After becoming aware of the Pantheon, Darkseid met with Miraak (who, of course, arrived at his temple to find him sitting on his couch) to make a deal to get himself into the Pantheon in exchange for the chance to experience unimaginable power. Believing that this power would give him the strength necessary to take over the GUAE, Miraak quickly accepted and got him ascended. When he went to get what he was promised, Darkseid merely grinned, thanked him for his effort, and used his Omega Beams to disintegrate him.
  • Born the youngest son of the last Old God, Yuga Khan, and his wife, Heggra, Uxas abhorred him and the rest of the Old Gods, who required belief and worship of mortals to sustain themselves and yet cared little, if anything, for their followers. Aspiring to usurp them, Uxas provoked them into fighting amongst themselves by spreading falsehoods and rumors to them and, when they were weakened and dying in the ensuing conflict, stole their powers away, eventually killing his father and stealing his power as well. After a fight with his older brother Izaya ended up destroying their world and splitting it in two, Uxas established himself as the ruler of his half, Apokolips, as the New God of Tyranny and Evil... Darkseid!
    • As the Anthropomorphic Personification of the very concept of Tyranny, Darkseid is obsessed with gaining control of everything and everyone, whether by breaking them... or other means. YHVH and Melkor have both expressed interest in recruiting him into the GUAL and GUAE, respectively, but Darkseid would only agree to join if they stepped down and deferred leadership to him. Needless to say, that's not happening. From Apokolips, he plots to eventually depose them and consolidate their Alliances into a part of his empire to take over the other Alliances, starting with the GUAC, which he loathes as the antithesis of his very existence, and, in time, the rest of the Pantheon. Such is the will of Darkseid!
  • As a New God, Darkseid's incorporeal true form lies outside of the multiverse, existing only in Fourth World. He creates weaker physical incarnations of himself to interact with beings beneath him. This means that, unlike the majority of deities, Darkseid's memory is completely unaffected by retcons, both small and large. As such he possesses knowledge of every iteration of the DC Universe since its beginning, and as such every iteration of the DC Multiverse. It's unsure what, if anything, he's planning with this information.
    • There is, perhaps, one sole exception to this. Before the Flashpoint Event, Darkseid's origin was a bit different: as a young man and second in line to the throne of Apokolips, Uxas stole the Omega Effect from his older brother Drax, then killed him and his mother Heggra to ensure his ascension to ruler of the Hell planet, taking the name Darkseid as his godname. Though Drax himself no longer seems to exist and his role in Darkseid's new backstory (outlined above) has been appropriated by Izaya, how much, if any, of this former backstory Darkseid still retains is unknown, especially after Superman's split pre and post-Flashpoint selves fused back into one and amalgamated their continuities.
    • Darkseid reaffirmed his place as a Multiversal threat in the New 52, with one documented story of his war on Earth-2 revealing he is in possession of the Anti-Life Equation, having retained it from Final Crisis, and another revealing he had been systematically slaying the Supermen of the Multiverse for unknown purpose, even making a clone of one of them to lead his armies on Earth-2 in place of the defiant Steppenwolf. He is now powerful to the extent that the Anti-Monitor had to build up strength for the expressed purpose of fighting him.
    • What's even worse, he has allied with Shao Kahn in a certain universe and both have the ability to perform a Fusion Dance which results in... Dark Kahn. This does not make anyone comfortable.
  • Many deities have wondered about the true nature of the Anti-Life Equation. The Anti-Life Equation is, among other things, a mathematical formula that instills within any sentient being that hears it with the mathematical truth that all hope and freedom is meaningless, and strips them of their free will, rendering them subservient to Darkseid. This power is known as "Anti-Life" due to the belief that beings that possess no free will... aren't really alive. Darkseid has used this power to corrupt the minds of a number of deities in the various Grand Alliances to act as moles for him, though they've been instructed to otherwise act normally. He has refused to comment on exactly how many he has enslaved in this way or their exact identities. YHVH, whose ultimate goal is a world where no one is capable of doing unlawful and has gone to insane lengths in pursuit of this goal, is insanely jealous that Darkseid, a God of similar power and motivations to Himself, possesses something of this nature, and has made it a high priority objective to learn the full equation... not an easy task, as Darkseid knows full well.
    • That said, the two of them did eventually begin to warm up with one another eventually. By the time Darkseid managed to create his own alliance, he came to the conclusion that the Grand United Alliance of Law would be the easiest part to establish some sort of relationship with, given that YHVH if a fellow tyrannical god, like he is. When the two finally met after patching things up, Darkseid proposed a deal to allow YHVH an allowance of his military strength while The Great Will would also present him with some backup. To the shock and dismay of many, they actually went ahead with the deal as YHVH felt that Darkseid's aid can give him an advantage against his other enemies and vice-versa, though they consider themselves as equal partners as a distinct way of letting others know of their partnership. Obviously enough, some members of the GUAL are not pleased with the results.
  • Since draining the powers of and killing Zeus (and a number of his demigod children), with the help of his daughter, the Apokoliptian-Amazonian hybrid known as Grail, to return to his original self after being turned into a baby , gods who are members of various mythological pantheons and those related to those gods (particularly if they're Greek) are not fond of Darkseid. Wonder Woman and Hercules (who was one of the aforementioned demigods killed by Grail), in particular, have sworn vengeance on him for that act. His ability to drain and absorb the power of other gods makes him a massive threat to every single deity in the Pantheon, possibly even more so than he was outside of the Pantheon. However, when against beings lesser than himself, he prefers to force them into serving him, if possible, rather than kill them.
  • He has a few plans for changing some of the Houses and sub-houses after he takes over the Pantheon. All the time-related sub-houses of Time and Space and the House of Music would have to go, as Darkseid doesn't like how many things can go wrong with Time Travel, and he doesn't like being reminded of that time when he was defeated by Superman singing. Then the Happiness sub-house in Emotion (with special care to kill Joy and Pollyanna) to get rid of all happiness in the Pantheon. The House of Heroism, of course, don't want to forget that one, for obvious reasons. To most people's surprise, he expects to keep the House of Opposing Fate around despite his hatred of it, as he considers free will to be a terrible thing and can't understand why anyone would want to live with it, so he sometimes likes to use it as a form of punishment.
  • His willingness to use any method to gain control of everyone and everything has gotten him supporters in Big Brother and Molag Bal. His goal of Dystopia perfectly aligns with Big Brother's, and as Darkseid's ally, Big Brother uses his propaganda in a similar manner as Darkseid's servant, Glorious Godfrey, convincing deities to turn against their Alliances and spreading distrust and despair throughout the Pantheon. Darkseid considers Molag Bal to be similar to his Master Torturer, Desaad, except more ambitious and competent, which is quite the compliment from someone like Darkseidnote . To wit, Molag Bal finds himself quite at home in Apokolips, and Darkseid in turn finds Molag Bal's realm of Coldharbour to be a very wonderful place. Although they acknowledge that fulfilling their ambitions will eventually lead to them fighting for dominance, and have prepared for the day that comes, they enjoy working together for the time being.
    • Captain America, much like Darkseid's adopted son, Mister Miracle, champions the fight for freedom and liberty that America represents, making him a natural enemy to the evil god whose tyrannous nature makes him the literal antithesis of all that Captain America fights for.
  • Has been known to manifest himself in the House of Commerce as "Boss Dark Side", the owner and operator of his personal club, the Dark Side Club, which appeals to the richest (and most morally corrupt) deities in the Pantheon, offering the opportunity to gamble on fights between different deities, who he pits against each other by temporarily warping their minds with the Anti-Life Equation. If two deities have battled each other outside Wiz and Boomstick's simulations, odds are good they're matches set up in the Dark Side Club.
  • Despite the reputation Deadpool seems to have with most villains, Darkseid seems to not mind him much and can tolerate much of what the Merc with the Mouth has to say. Perhaps this is because Deadpool reminds Darkseid of Ambush Bug, someone who, like Deadpool, also breaks the fourth wall and is someone Darkseid openly has fun spending time with.
  • Views Galactus as a worthy opponent, as the Devourer of Worlds is one of the few who can tank his Omega Beams (though he insists he was just getting warmed up). Apokolips has no life force for Galactus to feed on, so it holds no value to him. Darkseid has attempted to convince Galactus to aid him in taking over the Pantheon, but so far Galactus isn't terribly interested. His curiosity was piqued when Darkseid told him of New Genesis, which did present a very appetizing prospect. Highfather and the other New Gods on New Genesis did not appreciate the trouble that brought.
  • Finds Santa Claus incredibly annoying, because he somehow manages to break through his defenses on Apokolips for the sole purpose of giving him coal every single year on Christmas. Of course, the reason Santa Claus does this is because Darkseid is at the very top of his naughty list, and still is, even compared to the rest of the Pantheon, so Santa is obviously not too fond of him either.
  • Bowser doesn't get along with Darkseid. While the two are rulers with incredible power and a massive fear factor backing them up, Bowser dearly loves his son and is openly and genuinely respected by his troops and supporters. In stark contrast, Darkseid despises his sons, Orion, Kalibak, and his adopted son, Scott Free AKA Mister Miracle, and has no problem killing them while also subjugating his followers using terror to force them to revere him.
    • As much as he hates his sons, he does have a strange caring for his oldest son, Kalibak, which is more fueled by the memory of his mother, Darkseid's first and only love. For this reason, he hates High Councilor Kal-El for killing Kalibak almost as much as he hates the High Councilor's mainstream counterpart.
    • Speaking of abusive fathers, Darkseid's is not exactly a nice guy. Though having ascended to the title of God of Evil and living up to the title well, Darkseid does not actually embody Evil, but Tyranny. His father, Yuga Khan, is the original God of Evil whose title was usurped by his son. True to form, Yuga Khan is much, much worse than Darkseid is, both as a father (which is really saying something) and an individual (Yuga Khan, despite not being a Pantheonic deity, may technically be in the Pantheon, as he’s perpetually stuck to the Source Wall). Darkseid hates his father with a passion, and this hatred justifiably extends to those that remind him of him, such as the Pantheon's own God of Evil, Melkor, and Aku, the being made of evil.
    • There was one intergalactic being that was similar to Darkseid in some way or another; Ultraman Belial. Like Darkseid himself, Belial was a being who desired to rule the universe with an iron fist and was a member of a divine race that began to rebel against his kind the moment he desired ultimate power much like Darkseid himself when he was Uxas. When the two met, both took to respecting one another for their determination and their prowess. However, any chances of establishing a firm partnership were dashed the moment Darkseid learned that Belial was a member of the Grand United Alliance of Destruction. Fortunately, Belial's respect for the Lord of Tyranny meant that he was, at least, more tolerable than Melkor in some capacity so the idea of an alliance is still possible, that is if Belial relinquishes his GUAD membership in favour of Darkseid. There's also the fact that both have opposing sons so there's more to their similarity than just being Galactic Evil Overlords. Naturally, Riku Asakura, Belial's successor and biological son opposes Darkseid and so does the rest of the Ultramen due to how he resembles Belial so much, in addition to his capacity to destroy entire planets and being a cosmic threat who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals.
  • The alliance long-planned by Darkseid has now become a reality. The Harbingers of Repression has members from other alliances like the Grand United Alliances of Evil, Law, Chaos and Destruction. This sudden shake-up has many Alliance leaders worried about the dual membership and some have even considered brief truces with Darkseid so they can keep an eye on him and hopefully keep his rising role in the Alliance war minor. However, Darkseid only considers brief team-ups if the proposal acknowledges him as the superior being.
    • Had a chance encounter with Sauron who felt dissatisfied with his position in the GUAE and Melkor favouring Lord Voldemort over him in a leading position on the GUAE Malum Magia. Darkseid decided to convince Sauron to quit the GUAE and to enlist him as a chief enforcer and a personal right-hand man, both to bolster his forces and as a way to spite Melkor.
    • The Anti-Spiral was a being that intrigued Darkseid greatly as the former was driven by a need to subjugate others via fearmongering and putting a halt to their potential evolution in an effort to stave off the Spiral Nemesis. While it did do this with good intent, it eventually drove the Anti-Spiral mad to the point where it became a control-obsessed tyrant. Seeing as the Anti-Spiral felt alienated by all the other alliances and was disappointed by Team Dai-Gurren, Darkseid assured him that he, too, was seeking order and that together, they can work together to strongarm their enemies and pin them down to submission. Seeing the Lord of Tyranny's methods as heavily effective after taking a glance at Apokolips, the Anti-Spiral decided that Darkseid was the most worthy ally they could hope to have and serves as the closest asset Darkseid could have to a mecha sub-unit. Incidentally, this caught the attention of Team Dai-Gurren themselves, who expressed dread and disgust at just what Darkseid was capable of, thinking that he's worse than the Anti-Spiral regarding control, immediately declaring him a threat.
    • Shortly thereafter, Darkseid crossed paths with Archaon the Everchosen, who at first wanted nothing to do with him. Darkseid managed to catch Archaon's attention by mentioning the Chaos Gods and how every alliance opposed him, given his reputation and him destroying his own world, which stunned Archaon. Darkseid offered an arrangement in which he would supply Archaon with resources to rebel against the Chaos Gods as long as he commited his service and the loyalty of the Everchosen to Darkseid, which would give the Lord of Apokolips a substantial legion of Daemons to add to his forces. Archaon agreed, albeit hesitantly, and has taken the role of Darkseid's ace.
    • Impressed with AM and his nightmarish approach to torturing its opposes. Darkseid feels as if AM is the perfect replacement for Desaad, viewing the former as more competent in its speciality. AM also likes Darkseid for his approach in instilling fear and hopelessness towards others. However, AM also has ties with Melkor, something which Darkseid wishes to abolish in hopes of having AM on its side.
  • Due to embodying Tyranny, Darkseid has made foes with those who promote hope, but the one he has special enmity towards is Madoka Kaname, whose actions regarding redemption, love and peace disgust and anger Darkseid to no end. Despite knowing the pact that Madoka and her quintet make holds consequences, Darkseid isn't too keen on the Incubators either, seeing them as counterproductive beings whose wishes can be used against them. The Lord of Apokolips has vowed to either brutally kill Madoka or imprison her in the Omega Sanction as a means to spread helplessness and terror towards his opponents.
  • Angra Mainyu upon ascending into the Pantheon, declared many of the residing Evil Gods a rival, Darkseid included. However, Darkseid not only ignores it, but considers Angra Mainyu to be someone who is highly incompetent and pathetic for someone to champion himself as a God of Evil. Angra Mainyu wishes to have Darkseid acknowledge him, to no avail as Darkseid backs up his villainous credibility with numerous feats and for instilling fear and terror towards his oppressors, all of which Angra Mainyu lacks.
  • Zamasu outright loathes Darkseid with a passion, seeing him as a perversion of the concept of Gods and finds the very concept of an "Evil God" to be blasphemous and twisted. Darkseid on the other hand, finds Zamasu to be a joke in his belief and goals, outright stating him to be no different from the races he wishes to destroy. The very fact that Zamasu champions himself as a "well-intentioned" and righteous bringer of Justice only causes Darkseid to further underscore what a deluded, hopeless figure he really is. He knows full well it infuriates Zamasu, and he enjoys it.
See what I have made! Imagine what is yet to come! I take away their confusion and give them obedience. I take away their fear of themselves and give them fear of Darkseid. I have liberated them from the chaos and indecision! I have given one straight path! One clear purpose! One goal: To die for Darkseid!

  • It's not easy to envision and live out a life as a politician. You can try to imagine trying to be the leader of a country, and the amount of stress and effort needed is more daunting than one could ever imagine, on top of needing to possess an incredible display of ambition and wit to get ahead in the political game, let alone becoming leader. Such is the case for the United States, but what if the president played his game through emotional and mental manipulation, discarding his assets once used and committing any act of irredeemable action, all to become the 46th President of the United States? This was accomplished by Francis Joseph Underwood, a brilliant schemer and manipulator who was able to fool the general public into seeing him in good light and doing a very good job in masking himself in false charm and politeness.
  • Frank's first feelings in the Pantheon were one of total apathy and initial discontent. He was surrounded by commoners who minded their own business and went along with optimism and smiles. Frank gritted, marching his way around a city street. He soon managed to collect a newspaper about a recent event by the Court of the Gods. This was surprising to him as Frank realized that he may not be in Washington D.C. at all and immediately made a dash towards the closest city exit. With a quick scheme, he was able to convince a taxi cab into driving him to a city outskirts and was able to hide his face effectively well throughout the whole incident. Upon exiting the cab, Frank walked up a hill and glanced at the city where he once was moments ago, confirming his guess that he was in a new world.
    • It was from this hill that Frank came across Griffith, who greeted himself and asked of him. Frank sneered at the Godhand member, stating that he couldn't give a crap about the concept of gods, but Griffith redacted by stating that he'll be meeting several gods and that he would need to get ready for it. This amused Frank as he found the idea that he, the president of the United States was now in a position of Godhood, despite Frank being dismissive of the concept. Griffith then offered him a position in the Grand United Alliance of Evil, given how Frank lived out his life personally and as president. Initially divided, he begrudgingly accepted, but told Griffith that he would like to receive a leading position, thinking that a president in a lowly position would look embarrassing on his part. Frank was then accompanied by Griffith to be taken to an apparition of Melkor, who introduced himself as the Pantheon's top God of Evil. Deciding to work on Frank's leadership and manipulation skills, he allowed Frank into the GUAE Mastermind, under Griffith's service. Though he accepted the deal, Frank opted to work things out mostly in his own way.
  • Melkor was asked if Frank can establish a collection of cities for the GUAE forces. Frank stated that although they are a massive force that can reach up among the cosmos, the absence of a city would not work well for villains who seek accommodation, plus he can kickstart financial earnings and an economic system for their gains. He wanted this to happen so that he could provide some kind of influence for the GUAE and to feel accomplished in some way. He got his wish, although to his dismay, Melkor established a small number of cities exclusive to the GUAE. Although disappointed, Frank went ahead, vowing to work into expanding the GUAE's territory.
  • Frank is... not liked by numerous residents, or at least after they find out what kind of person he really is. They think Frank is disproportionately petty and vindictive and they'll underscore that his presidency only ruined the lives of several citizens, especially mentioning his orchestrated cyber attacks, bombings and dumping sarin gas, the latter as a Pretext for War. Not that Frank couldn't give a damn about morality and his critics's feelings. Melkor likes Frank for that habit.
  • He is a political genius who is able to quickly deduce and exploit laws and regulations to his advantage. This is a trait not many members of the GUAE possess and this serves to make Melkor more impressed. Frank however sneers at the God of Evil over the fact that he preps so much time trying to settle scores in fighting and waging wars that he couldn't take the time to win competitions using only his wits and knowledge. Melkor held off his anger, but does know that the GUAE doesn't have many politicians on their side.
    • Griffith is somewhat unusual. Frank does express some respect over his leadership and being able to play with other's emotions and expectations to his means. Upon hearing of Griffith's sacrifice of the Band of the Hawk, Frank took to talking to him about it and what satisfaction did it bring. Griffith stated that the event got him everything he ever wanted and that its a waste of time to consider grieving for others. Frank agreed with what Griffith had to state, but has told him that he'd remain human than be an Apostle. They're currently on decent terms, with Frank often thinking about teaching Griffith on how to be a skilled manipulator and exploiter of politics and law.
  • Every once in a while, Frank will talk without anyone around his presence. He will often state how crap humanity is, how easily manipulable people are in general and ask if you really are considerate and beneficial as an individual. He'll often rant about numerous events, small or large scaled, play it up to be a supposed great or terrible thing and then profess that in the end, you're worthless in simply just witnessing it and providing nothing about the events. Turns out, he is talking to the audience. Once Frank is all alone without anybody, he'll resort to taking out his frustration towards his supposed audience and his viewers. He's somewhat well-aware that he is a fictional character, but that is not going to hold him back.
    • For his fourth-wall exploitation, he found a companion under Bernkastel who is also someone who takes to interacting the Fourth Wall and insulting her viewers over the fact that they're her allies (whether they like it or not). Frank seems impressed by what Bernkastel is capable of and both sometimes talk about how to exploit people and ruin their opportunities to do better.
  • Previous United States Presidents, especially Theodore Roosevelt, despise Frank for his callous, self-serving and remorseless nature and declare him to be a complete disgrace in representing their country. Frank shot back, stating that they too, were self-serving to some extent and that they didn't always provide back for the US populace, not to mention how every US President tends to be negatively viewed by some. Unfortunately for Frank, lots of residents pointed out on how all of what Frank said applies greatly towards him more than the other presidents. This had Frank back away for quite some time before throwing in another rant privately (Or rather towards his viewers outside the fourth wall).
    • Frank, however, reserves his greatest scorn towards Jed Bartlet when it comes to American presidents. He is astonished and outright disgusted to learn how optimistic and idealistic Bartlet comes off, seeing him as unrealistic and a showoff. Bartlet sees Underwood as a complete disgrace to America and questions how can such a vile and condescending man even become president. While he does his best to hide it, much of Underwood's hatred towards Bartlet can come off as petty as Bartlet loves his wife and daughters and is usually beloved by the people he works with while Frank couldn't care less about anybody and sees them as chess pieces to be used and discarded, even his wife.
  • Some have noticed that Frank looks a lot like Lex Luthor. Turns out, the two have met and conversed with one another. Frank was surprised to see that Lex also became the American President a few times before entering the Pantheon and the two quickly became accommodate with one another. When Lex started to mention "the alien", Frank, preferring to go with "Superman" replied with a condescending "He's overrated as fuck. No novelty, just a generic representation for the populace to flaunt on and whine for". This amused Lex quite a lot.
    • Unsurprisingly, Superman and Captain America despise Frank for being the complete antithesis to what America stands for and for being a morally bankrupt individual in general. Lois Lane also hates him for exploiting a journalist and then killing her when she served him no purpose and wanted to eliminate evidence. Frank, on the other hand, sees Superman and Captain America as cheap and pathetic in his own point of view.
    • On a flipside, Frank hates his other lookalike, John Doe, for being someone who is far too deluded in his own killing spree and his religious philosophy. John sees Frank as an idiotic leader in return and a perfect representation of Pride, which Frank rather takes as a compliment. Frank has a rather... interesting way of summing up John Doe:
    Frank: John Doe, eh? Thinks he's a deep and righteous person? Like fucking hell, Christians will ever take to even giving him one good compliment. Isn't it in the rule that we aren't supposed to kill because of Damnation. Then again, he decided to screw a woman, kill her and be a sin representative himself, throwing himself into this belief bullshit that he had established. While messing with her lover cop is a rather interesting twist, he's a delusional mess, always was, and my respect to him is like how I treat toilet paper.
  • He has been compared as a tyrant, which only amuses Frank further. Alongside this, he finds himself in good company with Palpatine and the two seem to relate to one another regarding a Lack of Empathy and trickery. Even Darkseid seems to respect Frank to a degree, despite the Lord of Tyranny being opposed to Melkor, seeing his intellect as challenging and focused. Another admirer is Sauron, who thinks that Frank is noteworthy for his species and would sometimes talk to him. That said, being a defector of the GUAE, Sauron can't interact with Frank for long, unless he brings in Melkor's presence.
    • Other tyrannical figures like Gihren Zabi, Muruta Azrael and Tywin Lannister are cordial with Frank and are willing to establish diplomatic relations with him as a means to strengthen the GUAE's unity and accelerate budget increase for propaganda, weapons development and other actions that would please Melkor. Gihren and Muruta have praised Frank for committing attacks and killing innocents to further his career and Tywin can relate to Frank's methodical and sharp tactics and thinking to get ahead and outsmart his foes.
    • However, being a tyrant-like figure has gotten him enemies under Night Raid and Akame, who've made no stops in attempting to assassinate him at any given moment. Frank, however, has a collection of Apostles sent by Griffith to keep him protected. The Phantom Thieves of Hearts are also gunning for the chance in rewriting his heart, and Frank isn't going to allow a pack of teenage thieves to change his entire character. However, he became more concerned when he found about what they did to Shido to make him confess his own crimes. Since then he has begun to secretly fear them.
    • However, he is somewhat nervous at the prospect of SCP-2578-D, considering they're hellbent in targeting and killing tyrants, with which Frank isn't any different from. This is one of the few instances where Frank feels that he needs Melkor and Griffith, as he's a politician, not a fighter, and thus, can't defend himself against beings who would fire a Kill Sat to make sure the job is done.
  • Senator Steven Armstrong has conflicted feelings about Frank. He believes that he is very proficient and clever in politics and mind games, but he also thinks that he's too self-serving and petty to the point where he's actually poisonous towards America. Frank, on the other hand, chides Armstrong for being a Well-Intentioned Extremist and believes that while Armstrong would be of great physical asset, his worldview contradicts his, and that doesn't sit well for him. A similar sentiment comes from lookalike Jonathan Irons who, while also malicious and oppressive thinks what he's doing is good for his country. Irons thinks Frank should drop his petty games and focus on building up his ambitions, which he took to doing as soon as Irons said this.
    • Frank also has a working relationship with Lord Djibril, although their feelings are strained at best. They're both utterly depraved, have used war as a slogan for promotion and would sell-out their associates to further their own goals, but Djibril's cowardly nature when it comes to dealing with opponents leaves Frank frustrated. Lord Djibril thinks Frank is too self-centred. Frank came up with this retort...
    Frank: You think I kiss my own ass too much when you fail to realize you're no different. We are shitty politicians, but that's where it ends. You're a cowering whelp who can't find a solution to handle yourself when things go against you. At least I learn enough of my associates to learn of their weaknesses and counter them in the off chance I'm potentially opposed. It's easy why Muruta was said to be better; he got shit done. Heck, being a coward is what you're known for. It's your godly moniker after all.
    • That said, Frank is rather cordial with the Enclave, given how they are a morally twisted iteration of America. Frank is currently thinking about establishing bilateral relations between the GUAE and the Enclave by any means necessary, yet also wants to attempt to convince them to give up seeking any remotely noble intentions so that they may be able to easily work together. He also gets along with fellow Corrupt Politician Ethan Roark Senior and Frank is willing to give him money and resources for Roark Senior to carry on his political career in the oath that Frank also gets to keep his position intact and strong. That said, he hates Ethan Roark Junior for being uncontrollable and a pain to work with, despite knowing that he's just as depraved as he is. Frank finds it annoying that he can't kill Roark Junior unless he were to ruin his working relations with Roark Senior.
  • Is very open about his disdain and contempt for children. He'll mention it every once in a while. Naturally, this made him an enemy towards the House of Family and numerous Good Parents have come to dislike Frank for his approach towards the young, especially considering he convinced his wife to have an abortion.
  • Thanks to Frank, the GUAE are able to gain prominence in the topic of Government and Politics, something which Melkor and Griffith found pleasing as they feel they could challenge the Court of the Gods in this regard if they continue to engineer and bolster their political interests higher up. They intend to have Frank be one of their representing politicians due to his skills and intellect, but they also have to keep in check of Frank's ego as they've noticed how needy and ambitious he could get.

  • Special Relationship with: Jeanne d'Arc Alter
  • Raised as a simple farmer's daughter, Jeanne supposedly heard the voice of God to defend France against England. Heeding that voice, Jeanne joined the French army at a young age, leading the front as their flag bearer. Never once wavering in battle as she led her men to victory even when she was shot by two arrows in one of her battles, she was an inspiration to her troops. Unfortunately, Jeanne was finally captured, tried as a witch, and burned at the stake. It wouldn't be until years later that the ruling would be overturned and she be recognized as a Saint. Afterwards, because of her deeds, it inspired a specific type of character of a young woman who goes into battle for either her country, faith, or ideals and who is trying to liberate her people of oppression, becoming the Trope Namer and codifier of the Jeanne d'Archétype itself.
  • As mentioned before, Jeanne's claim of hearing God's voice is met with suspicion by many of the other deities. Some believe she's just mentally ill and those voices were only in her head. Whatever the case, all still agree that Joan is still a capable fighter and garners nothing but respect.
    • Others believe that God's Voice was actually Kyubey himself who gave Jeanne her power and made her a Puella Magi. Jeanne denies such a claim that her powers would come from a cosmic weasel like him and has nothing but contempt for him because of his manipulation of young girls to become magical girls and in turn becoming witches.
    • Some discoveries, however, have revealed that there is an alternate version of Jeanne who became a magical girl due to a contract with a creature named Cube. Moreover, this version of Jeanne learns that she will eventually become a witch early on and accepts the fact without falling into despair. Jeanne decided to follow this new discovery closely, though she already knows how it will end.
  • Is in a very peculiar crossroad when it comes to both Cosmos and YHVH; for the former, she has nothing but respect for the leader of the GUAG and is welcome in the Sacred Knights. But for the latter, he is the Great Will that she still worships as her God and would go into battle if he commands it. However, despite these conflicting loyalties, Jeanne was able to be put in both the GUAG and the GUAL. Even more shocking was that YHVH allowed Jeanne to be part of Cosmos's army. Because of this odd situation, members of both the GUAG and GUAL are suspicious of Jeanne being a spy for the other Alliance.
    • Her opinions on Melkor and Lucifer are nothing but negative; she hates the former for spreading evil and enslaving it's people and despise the later because of his tempting of Homura Akemi and causing her fall.
  • Astolfo was the first to welcome Jeanne in the Pantheon, giving her a hug. While Jeanne was happy to see the youthful paladin, a part of her feels envious that he has more followers then she. Jeanne has been considering wearing a bikini to attract more followers.
    • Alternatively, she's been spreading her legend to many of the Japanese Deities who are willing to listen to her.
  • Was stunned when she first met Arturia Pendragon. Not only for their faces looking quite similar or that the two sound the same, but also living somewhat identical lives. It was a surprise to the French woman that she would find an ally in an English woman.
    • She also found more women like her in Sophitia Alexandria and Lightning, who to were compelled by God to save the world. She was also impressed with Erza Scarlet's own backstory of leading her fellow slaves for freedom, which had plenty of parallels to her own life.
  • Jeanne heard that there was a male who shared her name, and found that person in Jaune Arc. She couldn't help by smile at the young man's dedication to be a genuine hero, and so decided to help the young lad with training along with his teammate Pyrrha.
  • Amazingly enough, Jeanne has zero proficiently in riding. This is despite her legend making her qualify for the Saber class, who are well known to be great riders. Lightning is trying to fix that by having her ride some of the Chocobos. Let's say the experience is comical at best.
    • She is also known to be mathematically challenged and illiterate. The latter was even used against her in her witch trial. She has since enlisted the help of many of ascended teachers of the Pantheon (and thus enrolling in the Elysium Academy) to teach her math and reading.
  • While Jeanne is well known to have never killed a person in battle, that doesn't mean she wouldn't order an entire town to be massacred if they didn't surrender to her army. This fact was a shock to many Gods, as they had never heard that part of her legend.
  • After her ascension, Jeanne was revealed to posess actual Holy Light power, making her very deadly to many of the evil-aligned Gods. She also has the ability to summon literal dragon knights to assist her.
  • There has been rumors that Jeanne actually posessed a mystic gauntlet that she used to fight evil demons in France. While it hasn't been confirmed, the Witchblade has responded to Jeaane's presence multiple times.
  • Absolutely hates Charles zi Britannia, reasons being that his conquering of other nations reminds her of the Englishmen who tried to conquer France. She also found his renaming any conquered people with a number degrading.
    • Incidently, Jeanne made a rival with C.C. after the former mistook her for a Jeanne d'Arc in her past that caused her to be burned at the stake.
  • Doesn't actually fight with her sword. Instead, she used her iconic banner, Luminosite Eternelle, to do battle, using it like a spear, but never spilling any blood. However, when the tide of battle is truly dire, she would use her holy sword, La Pucelle, which can emit giant flames. Those flames actually represent her burning at the cross, and once activated, Jeanne would lose her life, and would later have to be revived at the House of Life and Death.
  • As shown in her profile, Jeanne is a very odd member of the GUAL; she takes orders from YHVH, but despises most other members of the GUAL. She thinks Frollo is a disgrace to the cloth and hates how he uses God's name to meet his own perverse agenda. She sees Regime Superman as a disgrace towards the actual Superman, whom Jeanne looks up to as a inspiration to men's will. Pretty much the only people she can work with are Alexander Anderson and Metatron, and even that is complicated based on their personality.
    • Speaking of Anderson, compared to him, Jeanne has no problem with other religions as long as they love Gods. This actually makes her allies to both Asia and Xenovia, two Devils who still love God and pray to him, and Jeanne has sparred with the latter. This has made Jeanne even more distant to many of the religious-frenzied members of the GUAL and more at home with the GUAG.
  • At least some Gods are convinced that Jeanne isn't in the right mind for associating with YHVH. There are rumors that maybe YHVH is mind-controlling Jeanne to be part of the GUAL. Astolfo and a few others are convinced of these rumors and has set out to find out if it's true.
  • Once had a rap battle against Miley Cyrus. It was decided that Jeanne won.
  • Also has a seat in Character Archetypes.

    King Dedede 
King Dedede, God of Unofficial Rulers (The King of Dream Land, Self-Made King, His Royal Nemesis, King Erasmus Dedede III, D the Third)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fxs52me.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A circle with his hand doing a peace sign. Alternatively, his star hammer.
  • Theme: King Dedede's Theme, Masked Dedede (with Mask of Power equipped)
  • Alignment: True Neutral, though he can have both good and evil tendencies
  • Portfolio: Penguin (maybe?), Fat and lazy, Unofficial King, Big Fun, Wields a large hammer, Big Eater, Friendly recurring bad guy, False Final Bosses (sometimes), Respecting mooks and being respected back, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, Capable of raising his power through the use of a steel mask, Having the best interest of Dream Land in mind but through questionable means
  • Domains: Leadership (unofficially labelled), Hammers, Penguins (WMG)
  • Followers: His loyal army of Waddle Dees and other assorted mooks. Also, The King of Town and Captain McAllister
  • Allies: Meta Knight, The Gourmet Racer Club composed of fellow big eaters (Pac-Man, Toriko, Goku, Luffy, Murray, Shaggy, Scooby-Doo), Wreck-It Ralph, Vita, Guy Shishioh, Maximus, Vi
  • Rival: Kirby, Wario
  • Enemies: Zero (Not that one or that one), Jabba the Hutt, Jinx
  • Opposed by: Tabuu, Queen Sectonia, the Penguins of Madagascar
  • With a loud fanfare and a parade of Waddle Dees, King Dedede was carried towards the Pantheon on a palanquin held by two of his Waddle Dee subjects. Demanding his right as King and Ruler of Dreamland to be allowed into the Pantheon and take his seat in the House of Royalty, Dedede was led before the Court of Gods. His ego, however, was burst when the Judge reviewed his case and proclaimed that he was never officially given the authority to rule over Dreamland and therefore not allowed into the House of Royalty. Adding insult to injury, the Judge instead led him to the House of Leadership as the God of Unofficial Rulers.
    • Even there, the "King" likes to show-off his authority with his temple (or palace, as he prefers to call it) being the fanciest of them all. Most of the other deities there don't pay him attention or humor him just to leave them alone.
  • Even though he was a villain the first time he fought Kirby, their enmity has mellowed over the years. Dedede even hugged the little puffball where he came running over to greet him. However, he applied a little pressure to make it a bear hug and he gave a sly smirk. Some things never change.
  • On his arrival, Kirby and Dedede initiated one of their favorite activities that same day: the Gourmet Race. However, word of the free-for-all eating race reached some well-known big eater deities and they crashed the race. The Dreamlanders didn't feel upset and even enjoyed the extra competition. In the end, it was a three-way tie between Kirby, Pac-Man and Goku for first place, Toriko and Luffy together for second, and Dedede in third place. The King didn't feel too bad about his loss as other entries like Murray, Index, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo had yet to even reach the finish line.
    • Having met many who share the same passion of eating such as he, he set aside a special table within the House of Food for his "Gourmet Racer Club" composed of all the racers who attended the first Pantheon Gourmet Race. Chairman Kaga and his apprentices appreciate this since it allows them to be in one place for a continous buffet and leave enough food for the other gods.
      • Due to the rich amount of food available, however, many have tried to bribe their way to this special table, only to be rejected or pushed away by the Waddle Dees blocking access. Jabba the Hutt tried to muscle in only to be kicked out after displaying his legendary dining etiquette. Furious, the slug is plotting to take over the club table for himself.
  • Dedede and Wreck-It Ralph really hit it off and he was even invited to a Bad-Guy Anon meeting where he received a standing ovation to what it means to be a video game villain. Even though they are friends, Ralph doesn't allow the King to visit Sugar Rush on account that his appetite will get the better of him and he has little self-control, compared to Kirby.
  • Having a penguin appearance, Skipper and his men tried to take over his position for some reason. The King responded with one mighty swing of his hammer that sent them flying.
  • Some gods are confused on how to pronounce his name.Some of the Comic Book and Western-based deities pronounce it "Dee-dee-dee", whereas the Anime and Eastern-based gods prefer "Day-Day-Day". The King himself simply shrugs.
  • Whenever Dedede feels exceptionally lazy, he sends a squad of Waddle Dees to run errands for him within the Pantheon. Harming them, though, is not a good idea as Dedede himself is exceptionally protective of them. Then again, he wouldn't hesitate to launch a few of them at his foes or smack a few of them around when they displease him.
    • One day when Dedede sent a squad of Waddle-Dees to deliver some letters for his club members, Jinx saw them and decided to use them for target practice. The second the first bomb hit a Waddle-Dee, the King instantly arrived with a mighty Dedede Jump and went berserk on the Loose Cannon. Only with the arrival of Vi and several members of the nearby Combat Dojo was the fight broken up. Dedede, however, made sure she hasn't seen the last of him. "You can't be mean to my Waddle-Dees! Only I can be mean to my Waddle-Dees!"
  • Tabuu LOATHES the king since it is because of the king's special badges that revived him, Luigi and Ness from permanent statue-fication, rescuing the other Smashers in what was known as "The Subspace Emissary". The king's response to seeing Tabuu? Firing up his mask and jet hammer, along with a Smash Ball, and proceeded to wail on him.
  • Has a somewhat of a bad habit of being a subject of Demonic Possession. This annoys him a bit as not only is it annoying when it happens, but also because there are many who cannot take him seriously when good potion of his fights against Kirby were against his own will.
  • Has tried using a battle axe instead of a hammer after it turned out he was far more threatening with it, but that seemed to be because of yet another case of Demonic Possession. He's since gone back to using the hammer, finding it far more comfortable. Time will tell if he actually decides to train with it.
  • Big Bull has been seen conversing with King Dedede, impressed with his jet hammer. They've agreed to have a jet hammer duel in the near future.
  • Some gods are even surprised to hear that Dedede can occasionally speak actual dialogue.
  • While Dedede has always had some amount of Stout Strength in order to wield his mallet, he can apparently put on a staggering amount of bulk if he chooses to.
  • As Wiz and Boomstick proved when they pit Dedede against Wario, Dedede is actually a lot more dangerous than most people give him credit for. Like Kirby his rank of Intermediate god doesn't really do justice to just how strong and how durable the greedy king is. Consider in a vortex all the feats of durability, speed, and power that Kirby can show off and then consider that Dedede can keep an even pace with Kirby in all circumstances, and you start to get a good idea of just how dangerous Dedede is... which is thankfully reigned in by how lazy he is.

    Theodore Roosevelt 
Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt Jr., God of Badass Presidents (The Bull Moose)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6800056a_1.jpg
  • Demigod (has Greater God levels of Authority)
  • Symbol: A Bull Moose
  • Theme Song(s): Hard Times Come Again No More (Ancient, Medieval, Industrial, and Atomic versions)
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Badass Moustache, Badass Presidents, Genius Bruiser, Great White Hunter, Gunboat Diplomacy, Handicapped Badass, Specs of Awesome
  • Domains: The White House, Conservation of the Environment, Politics, Square Deals
  • Heralds:
    • His family: Edith Roosevelt (his wife and First Lady), Alice Roosevelt Longworth, BG Theodore Roosevelt Jr., Kermit Roosevelt, Ethel Roosevelt Derby, Archibald Roosevelt, Quentin Roosevelt (children)
    • His Cabinet: Charles Fairbanks (VP), Elihu Root (Secretary of State), James Rudolph Garfield (Secretary of the Interior)
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: All the Evil-aligned members of the House of Commerce.
  • Followers: Michael Wilson
  • He ascended when he was Kicked Upstairs as a result of a failed Batman Gambit by the GUAE. It was a close four-way race between Teddy, George Washington, Andrew Jackson, and Michael Wilson for this position, but ultimately Washington stepped down, Jackson was disqualified for the "Trail of Tears", and it was pointed out that unlike Wilson Teddy didn't need a Mini-Mecha.
  • It is rumored that he was the Super Prototype for Chuck Norris and many Gods are placing bets on which is more powerful: Chuck's beard or Teddy's moustache.
  • He frequently visits the House of Knowledge and can often be found reading books in the library section or bugging the gods there into taking up "the strenuous life".
  • He frequently goes on hunting trips to the House of Beasts, but uses non-lethal ammo because Fluttershy asked him not to kill any of them.
  • He also visits the House of War to either discuss tactics and swap war stories with fellow Colonel Badass Jade Curtiss or to just kick some ass.
  • He used to challenge other gods to boxing matches, but after sparring with Asura he stopped doing that and know just challenges them to Judo matches instead.
  • Candle Jack once tried to kidnap him, but it turns out that Teddy was hunting for Candle Jack and said his name on purpose in order to lure him out. He then proceeded to beat seven shades of hell out of the kidnapper with a big stick.
  • Unlike almost every other President in the mortal world, he doesn't need any bodyguards at all. Teddy is a bad enough dude to fend off ninjas of the GUAE who once tried to kidnap him.
  • It is said that most of the gods in the House of Life and Death only dares to face him when he is asleep. They claim that if he was awake during their encounters, there would have been a fight.
  • In a simulated scenario, he faced off against Lawrence of Arabia. Due to his hidden "being American" X-factor coming into play despite being behind in most of the stats by comparison, Teddy won that fight.
  • Once engaged in a wrestling match with Chuck Norris. The result was a tie.
  • Despite his extensive reputation as a Memetic Badass, he is not ashamed in the slightest to admit there's a fight he roundly lost - to Scrooge McDuck. Teddy has also freely admitted he would have probably stayed a rancher had the duck not persuaded him he could be so much more than that in their first meeting. Best decision he ever made.
  • The only god Death the Horseman refused to face head on: he had to wait until Teddy was asleep to kill him.
  • Teddy once happened to visit the House of Music during one of their rap concerts. To prove he was knowledgeable and respectful to today's times, he loudly greeted the audience with a shocking "What's up, BITCHESSSS?!" When the shock ebbed, he was met with roaring applause.
  • Is not (historically) actually a member of the Knights Templar, enemies of the Assassin Order. Ezio had to make absolutely sure with this one.
