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.

  • Overdeity of Evil
  • Symbol: His iron crown, with the Silmarils absent from it.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, however, he can just as easily pretend to be Lawful or Neutral Evil if it suits his purposes
  • Portfolio: Those Modeled After the Devil, The Greatest of the Valar Turned the First Dark Lord, Source of All Malady, Made of Evil, Evil Is Deathly Cold and Burning Hot, The Dark Side Will Make You Forget, Casts a Shadow Over Arda, Creative Sterility, A God Am I, Dark Is Evil, Villains Want Mercy, Lord of All Discord and Malady, Corruption, Omnicidal Maniac
  • Domains: Evil, Darkness, Corruption, Tyranny, Destruction, Hatred, Fear, Greed, and many more negative things.
  • High Priest: Lord Foul the Despiser
  • Followers: Torak, The Crimson King, The First Evil, Melzas
  • Superior: J.R.R Tolkien...for the most part
  • Allies: For now, he has an alliance of convenience with Nyarlathotep and Aku. In addition, he is in good graces with most card-carrying villains, dragons, orcs, sorcerers and demons of the evil alignment, and those who are Made of Evil
  • The Man Behind the Man to: Quite possibly almost every villain to exist, with the certain exception of Nekron, Amatsu-Mikaboshi and the Anti-Monitor (and the debatable exception of Ungoliant and the Lich)
  • Rivals: The Beast, Chaos (also occasional allies), The Anti-Monitor
  • Enemies: Though he has many enemies, Melkor considers the subjugation and/or annihilation of Manwe Sulimo (his brother), Ungoliant (his former ally), Cosmos, YHVH, Lucifer, Nekron and Philemon to take precedence. On a more personal and petty note, he considers Io, Iroque, Amaterasu, Goku, Vegeta, Superman and every creator god to be on top of his hit list.
  • Opposes: Eru Ilávatar himself, the Houses of Craft and Music, the sub-houses of Dragons.
  • Ambiguous relationship with: Krona the Mad Guardian
  • Melkor, later renamed as Morgoth came to be as the first and mightiest of the Ainur, created from the thought of Eru Ilúvatar. Though second only to his Creator, he was not content to follow Eru's sacred design. He sought to create of his own, to make his own tunes which would bring discord and darkness. Thus would begin his transformation into the First Dark Lord, the Great Enemy of Arda and the God of Evil who sought to remake and destroy all things in his image, above even Eru. Though his corruption still echos, Melkor himself was locked away in the Timeless Halls. It was initially believed he would stay that way forever, or at least until Dagor Dagorath. However, something caused his chains to break, and the Dark Lord wandered to find the Trope Pantheon. Now free of the narrative rules and structure of his home universe, Melkor believes he may finally be able to achieve his goal of degradating, corrupting and annihilating all existence.
    • Has spent the past few score thousand years sealed away in the Void by gods now long forgotten. Is highly curious about this newfangled technology stuff mortals have come up with in his absence, but is learning fast enough that he's only set his hair on fire twice so far. Credited by ancient scrolls as developing genetic engineering roughly 20,000 years before any other villain.
    • Is rather pissed at Sauron for how poorly evil in Arda was managed in his absence. It took the gods themselves to dethrone Melkor's reign of terror, but all it took was a few midgets and a "hey, look at this squad over here" to dethrone that incompetent minion he had running things.
    • Melkor has sought out new enforcers, leading him to seek out the deadliest and most evil souls in creation. He has joined with three of them, founding the Four Horsemen; Majin Buu was chosen for sharing his tastes and to serve as the muscle, Johan Liebert was chosen to break the wills of men and help with intelligence, and The Ebon Dragon was chosen to defile and corrupt. While Buu has been kept in check due to his Sweet Tooth (for the most part), the other two bide their time to usurp him. The Grand United Alliance of Good is deciding which would be a greater hassle for them.
  • The Dark Enemy of the World is not merely the "god" of evil, but in all but a few rare occasions the source of evil itself. Through his hateful thoughts Melkor brought discord into creation, marring the initial design. It hasn't been fully confirmed if he's responsible for evil in all universes, however, most cataloged in the Trope Pantheon do recognize him as the source. Almost all villains from 20th and 21st-century works are said to all originate from Melkor. It is a role Melkor has wholeheartedly embraced, leading to him becoming on of the four Cardinal Alignments. Many villains now serve under him in the Grand United Alliance of Evil, though it's hard to find those truly loyal to him.
    • Melkor's influence and power seems to depend on how morality works in certain universes. He's stronger in worlds of Black and White or straight up black morality, while weaker in worlds of grey morality. Places like the Cthulhu Mythos where good and evil are quaint concepts are where he's most impotent, however.
    • It's worth noting that while Melkor is responsible for evil in creation, he is not responsible for evil outside or preceding it. Nekron is unaffected by him, having been created from the darkness preceding light, while Amatsu-Mikaboshi existed long before the multiverse came into being, as does Orgalorg. It's debated if the Lich was one of the few evil beings preceding Melkor, but he doesn't think much of them.
      • Depending on who you ask, Ungoliant was either corrupted by him or actually an independent entity outside Ilúvatar's dynamic. Though if Melkor ever had influence over her, it's gone.
    • Recent evidence may suggest that even Melkor is not the initial source of evil. Rather, it may be Krona. Having interfered with creation, many in the GUAE believe that he may have been responsible for Melkor's Face–Heel Turn, and possibly even more. The Mad Guardian feels insulted by this; he wished to look back at the dawn of time in order to understand how all things came to be and why, any damage he did because of it is accidental. Further research revealed a more confusing truth; Melkor became evil on his own, but it was Krona's tampering that resulted in it manifesting as an actual substance he could spread and diffuse. Given the timey-wimey experiment Krona was doing, it may be a lot more accurate to say Melkor and Krona were behind each other.
  • Having spread his spirit across all of Middle-Earth, Melkor CANNOT die unless Arda itself is destroyed. He has used this opportunity to mock Death herself, as she seemingly can never take him. Didi hasn't responded, simply because she knows this is crock; Middle-Earth's destruction and recreation is inevitable. And when that happens, he'll be snivelling at her feet as Eru Ilúvatar comes for him.
  • The First Dark Lord is not just evil on a grand scale, but on a petty level as well. Though once great, he now takes greater joy in the corruption of mortals, and the misery of his enemies in even the most minor of achievements. It is this which in part led him to form the Grand United Alliance of Evil; to befoul creation and create a playground for evil all to spite existence and Eru Ilúvatar.
    • Desires to slay Amaterasu, Goddess of the Sun, in hopes of re-living his destruction of the Two Lamps. He also seeks to slay Io and take over the sub-house of Dragons, whom he claims to be his creations.
    • Will go ballistic if anybody mentions Fingolfin.
  • Many regard Melkor's backstory and portfolio as being remarkably similar to the well-known tale of Archangel Lucifer, better known as Satan or The Devil. It is believed by most that he is none other than the Devil himself. The Beast would disagree, stating that he is the true Devil and influenced Melkor. Lucifer thinks they're both full of shit.
    • Is likely the source behind The Dark Side, however Sheev Palpatine believes the reverse to be true. He certainly emanates it, putting him at odds with the entire Jedi Order.
  • More recently, The Golden Spider has pissed off Melkor by claiming to be above the God of Evil. The Golden Spider's reasoning is that he is a Creator of Life, much like Eru, who was the one who created Melkor, meaning that Melkor was below him. Understandably, this turned many heads, considering the Golden Spider called such a thing into question. Given his previous experience with Ungoliant, Melkor might have arachnophobia
    • In general, the presence of other creator deities is something that aggravates the Dark Lord to no end. Ultimately impotent against the forces of his own creator, Melkor seeks to take his anger out on the other creative forces in the pantheon.
    • Though J.R.R Tolkien is a superior of sorts for Melkor, the Dark Enemy argues otherwise, as he passed before The Silmarilian could be finished. Tolkein is still recognized as his superior by most, as he's still behind the tales of Middle-Earth and the story was completed by his son Christopher(who has been promised a position if he ever ascends). Most regard this as just Melkor unable to accept he has superiors.
  • Is GREATLY displeased by recent events caused by the Great Upheaval which has led to him being upstaged by both Lucifer and YHVH being tied for the position of the Pantheon's number one threat. No one knows what he intends to do yet, but he has been heard muttering that "Law and Chaos are nothing compared to the merciless, annihilating power of True Evil, I shall teach them all that...''
    • Upon learning that some of the most significant members of his alliance had jumped ship over to Lucifer and YHVH's newly created ones, his fury knew no bounds. Volcanic mountain ranges rose all across the streets of the Pantheon and erupted with titanic force, as violent thunderstorms raged in the skies not just above the Pantheon, but above the world(s) of mortals as well. Melkor's ranting earthquake-like voice, full of absolute malice and insanity, echoed and boomed across every House and Temple as he screamed forth a terrible vow: note 
    • The Great Will yawned and responded: note 
    • Lucifer's response was considerably more succinct: note 
  • Behind all his dystopic ambitions, unending cruelty and malice, Melkor was driven due to a desire to create. It is a power he could never obtain, due to the nature of evil in his universe. And it is a power he'll never have outside, as he cannot escape the limitations put on him by his creator. Only able to mock and corrupt, Melkor seeks to steal the power of all creator gods in the pantheon, and if not will befoul, torture and destroy them the best he can. Good, neutral and evil, all those with The Power of Creation unite in enmity towards the Enemy of Middle-Earth.
  • Recently, a (non-canon) novel known as the Black Book of Arda has been uncovered that details Eru as a tyrant who oppressed the world to force true perfection on everything and depicted Melkor as a bringer of freedom to the people of Arda. He has since tried to use it to attract others to his side. No one is buying it for a second.
  • Also resides in the Main House and the Houses of Philosophy and Villains.

    YHVH 
YHVH, the Absolute Lawmaker, and Leader of the Grand United Alliance of Law (YHWH, Yehowah, Yahweh, Elohim, Sabaoth, Shaddai, Kagutsuchi, Demiurge, Ancient of Days, the Great Will (Or rather, its rogue avatar), The Lord)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yhvh_4.png
  • Overdeity of Law
  • Symbol: His Countenance
  • Theme Music: Omega (YHVH), Major Boss (Sabaoth, Shaddai, Elohim, YHVH), Kagutsuchi Battle 1, Kagutsuchi Battle 2, Merkabah I (Ancient of Days), Merkabah II (heard when he gets REALLY angry), Foreseeing the Horizon Battle, Evil Incarinate (heard when he's DONE with your sins)
  • Alignment: Pure Law, which translates out to Lawful Good to his loyal followers and Lawful Evil to everyone else.
  • Portfolio: Villainous Supreme Beings, Tyrannical Abuse of Law, Abominable Abuse of His Own Creation, Soulless Worlds, The Evils of Free Will, Gods Influenced by Their Worshippers, Absolute Moral Authority, Immortality by Proxy, Once-Benevolent Deities Driven Insane, Genocide, Lack of Empathy, Order Is Not Good
  • Domains: Light, Law, Creation, Tyranny, Faith, Order
  • Herald: Metatron
  • Followers: "The Loving God," The Creator, a second The Creator, The Occuria, various not-good light-aligned beings, at least until he crosses one too many Moral Event Horizons for even them
  • Allies: Metatron, Yaldabaoth, the God of Control, tenuous alliances of convenience with Darkseid, Sheev Palpatine, Sauron, Megatron, Dolores Umbridge, Arthas Menethil, Red Skull, Lex Luthor, Destro, Copy X, Frollo, Seymour Guado, Ozymandias
  • Enemies: Lucifer, and for that matter, the entire Chaos Pantheon, benevolent creator-figures (he gives them a bad name), Sosuke Aizen (Aizen sees him as an obstacle to his ambitions), Yuuki Terumi, Valvatorez, Shu Shirakawa, Luka, the GUAG Sisterhood... Pretty much everyone with a modicum of Free Will, which is to say, Everyone not listed under "allies".
  • Apart from the ones hailing from his own multiverse, his "followers" listed above don't so much follow him as work toward the same goal, as they're all fairly powerful themselves and would gladly try to take over his portfolio if given half the chance. However, given the massive legions he has amassed, none of the competitors come nearly close to challenging his role as the Overdeity of Law.
  • YHVH is also highly intolerant of other Top God candidates, outright seeking the annihilation of all other Creator Gods with limited success. He refuses to acknowledge the existence of any Creator who has proven stronger (not that there are many), and indeed, many of the friendlier Creators prefer it so, given the kind of press he generates for them. While there have been countless attempts to overthrow him, the desire to return to the stability and order he promises is too great, and as many times as he is destroyed, he invariably comes back. This is why he mocks any and all attempts to remove him from the human spirit or from the Throne of Law. And why he regards the "Pantheonic Rebellion" as a particularly funny if stupid joke
  • His Blue and Orange Morality isn't hard. to comprehend. It's merely that his Law and Good axes and the Chaos and Evil ones overlap perfectly. Consequently, Chaotic Good is a complete oxymoron to him, as is Lawful Evil. It would be a terrible mistake to define the Great Will as purely evil - horrifying as his acts may be, he ultimately seeks the best for his Chosen, and to save as many as he can to usher them into an egalitarian paradise, with everyone serving as a well-oiled cog under his benevolent, perfect will, happy and protected forever and ever. Any form of freedom or difference is an unnecessary luxury he eventually intends to dispense with, and if a few have to suffer for the many to achieve his dream, so be it.
  • Through the power of Kagutsuchi and the Conception, he constantly creates and destroys universes in an eternal quest to create his perfect world, studying the variables of Humanity and how to manipulate them better, so he can ultimately purge them, no matter the cost, on every world and every timeline, of The Evils of Free Will. This worked so well some believe Shinryu might have been cribbing ideas from him.
  • He's the ultimate incarnation of the concepts of Law and Tyranny. It's said that he was once a benevolent god, but was driven to insanity and corruption by a massive flaw in reality. There are literally none who remember how he once was. Few are willing to broach the subject, either for fear of provoking him...or finding out what he has to say. Even worse, nobody's sure of exactly what was/is the flaw in reality that caused the shift. Efforts to find out what this was and eliminate its influence on the Mad God have all failed miserably.
    • There was one universe where he tried being more empathetic. More or less worked, except that due to an earlier act of dickery (orchestrating the whole Abel And Cain scenario to create the first martyr and the first murderer) what seemed to be a perfect plan for the domination of Law got derailed and he had to settle for at least preventing that Earth from falling into absolute Chaos. Metatron was ordered to take a note on the incident, file it, and lose it for a while.
    • One of Flynn's more recent timelines has given a partial explanation. Apparently, he is actually a rogue avatar of the Great Will, which has responded to his actions by giving humanity the means to defeat him over countless times.
  • He personally has little interest in the Pantheon (he isn't even around most of the time), though he regularly sends envoys and avatars to oversee the situation.
  • Very similar to the Abrahamic God, but not the same thing.
  • His legions, while completely loyal, seem to have various degrees of understanding as to what exactly His will is. Most glaringly, the Four Archangels have twice created societies based on deep classist principles against His wishes. Satan is loyal to the principles of Law, not necessarily to Him, Merkabah is half crazy but has a firmer grasp on Law's tenets, Mastema ping-pongs between a selfish jackass and a genuinely helpful Guardian Angel, the Ancient of Days is merely a killing machine, Kuzuryuu was created without a will, the Demiurge is obsessed with sealing all human souls in the physical universe, and He no longer bothers to try to track Samael's allegiances. His sole actual link to the Pantheon and Speaker of His Will is Metatron, but the Voice cannot be everywhere at once.
  • The ascension of YHVH and Lucifer to the Main House caused quite an uproar, especially considering their most recent crimes. Officially, the reason YHVH was finally let in was due to him being an Overdeity and the fact he is the Anthropomorphic Personification of a character alignment. To be truthful, it was due to the ascent of Lucifer: Dream wants to keep a close eye on the fallen angel after he actually managed to bring down a Main House deity, an act originally thought utterly impossible. So he allowed Lucifer in under the pretense of needing to maintain the balance between him and YHVH. The Great Will ate it right up. Lucifer didn't.
  • One of the few gods to tell Mr. Rogers where to stick it (not in those exact words, perhaps, but still). While YHVH is powerful in his own right, general consensus chalks the action up to YHVH's delusional inability to comprehend the fact that ANYONE could be stronger than him. Still, he did appreciate, however slightly, Rogers' willingness — nay, devotion — to help others.
  • At the end of the Pantheonic Rebellion, he was captured and sent to the Court of the Gods. Before his trial commenced, he was subjected to a Vigilante style No-Holds-Barred Beatdown. His formal punishment was to be split apart into multiple pieces, and cast back into his own universe with only quasi-deity power until he learned that law and good are not synonymous. Unfortunately, it didn't take. He realized that indeed, law and good are not the same, and declared that law was vastly more important. To everyone's horror, he regained his full power before everyone's eyes and proceeded to form the Grand Alliance of Law, cementing his place as an official member of the Alignment Incarnations and a huge threat in the Pantheon.
  • After the Pantheonic Rebellion, Etna hacked his title to better reflect his true nature on a metaphorical level (labelling him as a Demon). She had some time to laugh before Lamington appeared before her and warned her very sternly not to try such a reckless action again, lest she be marked as a target for more... imaginative punishments. He's willing to stick his neck a bit for her and distract the Great Will, but he's not going to save her should she keep her antics. Predictably, Etna blew him off. Moments later, she was struck with a curse that downgraded her to Level 1 and prevented her from both gaining experience and levelling up. It took her a lot of favors, quests and humiliation to get the curse broken, making her the laughingstock of the House. Even then, she had to level grind all the way back... at which point she was hit again with the curse, as a final spiteful gift. Due to Naoki Kashima preparing for his fight with Barbatos Goetia, it took Killia's intervention to break the curse a second time.
  • YHVH is still pissed off at Valvatorez and his allies for what they did to him at the end of Disgaea 4. In Disgaea 4, Valvatorez not only prevented YHVH from destroying earth, the netherworld and Celestia, thus saving the lives of billions of humans, demons and angels, but he also kicked YHVH's ass in an alternate ending where YHVH turned into four giant Mushrooms in an attempt to prevent Valvatorez from destroying his magic planet-destroying computer (no, seriously, that's really what happened)
  • Seeing the greater threat in man's actions against him, YHVH decided in a change of tactics and would correct mankind on a psychological level. By forcing his concept of Order into the collective unconsciousness, an avatar that bared his likeness was born, who would control the masses through rehabilitation or erase the failures on a metaphysical level.
    • Once he realized what had happened to Yaldabaoth he became enraged and has added the Phantom Thieves to his evergrowing list of enemies, vowing to never let the entire group ascend, sparking yet another conflict between him and Lucifer.

  • Enemies: YHVH, Melkor, The Magical Girl Sisterhood, Satan, The Flood
  • Humans to impress him: David Bowie, Shu Shirakawa, Kenshiro, Luka, Lina Inverse, Isaac
  • Secretly watching: Zero (Drakengard), Kouta Kazuraba
  • Conflicting Opinion: The Chaos Gods (Tzeentch, Khorne, Slaneesh, Nurgle), Discord
  • Uneasy Relations: Ren Amamiya and the Phantom Thieves of Hearts
  • He's highly secretive of exactly who he is, how he came into being, and his relations with YHVH and humanity. Some claim that he is indeed the fallen angel of Biblical legend. Other subscribe to the idea that like YHVH, he sprung from the hearts and minds of humans yearning for freedom. In any case, it was he who sparked the creation of the concept of Chaos itself, and he is very vocal on what he believes: a world with absolute freedom where all sentient beings are free to do as they please. He's utterly ruthless in his actions, but make no mistake: he, for good or bad, is with humanity all the way. Yes, he believes in a wild, savage world where power and freedom are the apexes of life. But considering the alternative...
  • Whatever you do, don't mistake him for Satan. You'll just piss both of them off. Lucifer simply had the misfortune of being given the same name that the Devil had back when he was an angel of the Lord (not YHVH, but the being he was based on). Better not ask about the fact that Lucifer was once Helel, YHVH's most beloved archangel, either.
  • Freely accepts that his most often-seen avatar owes much of its appearance to one of his favorite musicians, David Bowie.
  • Has a cordial relationship with the Chaos Gods, though he is a bit exasperated that they're stuck in the worst of their respective emotions instead of becoming entities of true Chaos and fully encompassing the entire spectrum of the emotions they are supposed to embody.
  • Has a similar relationship with Discord. Each respects the other's dedication to breaking up the sovereignty of the local Top God in favor of absolute Chaos, but Discord finds Lucifer's interest in humanity's potential boring while Lucifer finds Discord woefully under-motivated. Since Discord forged a bond with Fluttershy, however, Lucifer is cautiously optimistic that Discord may just learn what he's talking about yet. It's at least a first step.
  • On the other hand, he does not get along with Melkor at all since Melkor believes that Chaos should be all about causing infinite destruction and suffering for the sheer sake of it and sees humanity as nothing more than a mere plaything. Lucifer just sadly shakes his head and muses on "wasted potential".
    • Despite holding truly antagonistic feelings toward YHVH and Melkor, Lucifer has noted he doesn't feel the same way toward Cosmos: while he acknowledges her as an adversary and has no intention of losing the War of the Alliances to her, he respects her quite a bit, and has noted that if someone besides him absolutely had to be the winner of the War, he would much rather it be her than the others. After all, she too acknowledges the dignity of sentient beings and respects their right to freedom, while Melkor and YHVH are both, as he put it, "on a self-indulgent ego trip". Despite Lucifer's opinion toward her, Cosmos does not reciprocate; she holds nothing but disdain for the Great Darkness.
  • He's not entirely certain how he should feel about the newly ascended Luka, due to the fact that he's the boy's mother in the world he comes from. This makes most any gift-giving day awkward and has made him the butt of several jokes by his enemies. Still, the Lightbringer always manages to feel pride in his "son" for successfully slaying Ilias, YHVH's own Expy and has reserved a spot in the GUAC for him should he decide that he wants to join. This offer has also been extended to his wife Alice.
    • Similarly, there is also the matter of Lina Inverse, whose entire universe is actually spawned from the Sea of Chaos, the essence of Lucifer herself, who appears physically in that world as the Lord of Nightmares. On the one hand, Lucifer has wanted to destroy that world due to it spawning without the LON's consent. On the other hand, Lina is the only person in that world to have ever called upon Lucifer's power, and even though it backfired with Lina almost being possessed by it, her friend's determination to get her back impressed Lucifer enough to let her get out unscathed.
  • In his attempts to subvert any timeline where the future is determined by YHVH, he has experimented and manipulated others to see what potential futures there are. After many battles against him, he has come to the conclusion that Raidou Kuzunoha the XIV is the "spark" who can ensure that YHVH never has his way.
  • A very firm believer in the power of Humanity. However, he is also of the opinion that power and freedom are rewards to be seized/earned and not inalienable rights that can be taken for granted. This has caused some friction with Asura and is one of the major points against Lucifer.
  • Occasional ally of the Fiends. They are not obligated to obey his commands, but are more than willing to work with him if they feel their duty goes hand in hand with Lucifer's plans.
  • Seems to be on a bit of a Gender Bender streak as of late. He's also been noted to have put a bit more effort into his most recent alias's name and personality.
  • In contrast with the Great Will, Lucifer understands the concepts of Chaotic Evil and Lawful Good in comparison to his views — he simply has little use for such labels given he himself allows for no limits in his own desires. Despite committing some less-then-savory acts of his own, Lucifer ultimately seeks the best for humanity, and to guide as many as he can to a paradise of true freedom, with everyone given a chance to shape the world based solely on their own competence, without having to worry about being silenced by rules based on arbitrary, ultimately self-serving nonsense. Any form of law or structure are suffocating nuisances he eventually intends to dispense with, and if there are people too weak to survive in the world he dreams of, so be it.
  • Sick to death of people asking him if he plays the fiddle. For the record, he doesn't, and for a while couldn't for the life of him think of why people kept asking him such a frankly inane question. Eventually someone told him, and, to everyone's surprise, it quickly became a favorite song of his: the idea of a human beating him in a fiddle duel with nothing but his own skill, having the gall to call him a "son of a bitch" and saying he welcomes a rematch at any time was incredible. He still has no intention of learning to play the fiddle himself.
  • Summoned twice due to The Power of Friendship and representing free will against the Order of Yamato, Satan, and Ameno-Sagiri. Did we mention he defeated Satan with a hug? Kinda important thing to note. He is also the powerful Persona/Demon unlocked by the Seekers of Truth Judgement Arcana and Alcor's Fate.
  • Important: he's Chaos, not Evil, at least in this incarnation. That portfolio belongs to Nyarlathotep. That being said, don't think he's entirely benevolent, either. While he's not necessarily a Social Darwinist, he is The Unfettered and has been known to support (and act on) extremely Chaotic Evil acts and deities for the sake of his goals. There's a reason so many are wary of him and just how far he's willing to go. Case in point:
    • Was noticed observing Homura Akemi from afar, much to the worry of many in the Pantheon; when it comes to finding those with the potential to become powerful warriors of Chaos, Lucifer has proven to be an excellent judge of character. The Pantheon's fears were realized when Homura was spotted spending time with a blonde magical girl calling herself Louisa Ferre. The extent of Lucifer's involvement was shown in full when Homura betrayed Madoka at Lucifer's urging, kicking off an event known as the "Great Upheaval". Using a magatama she got from the Chaos Lord, Homura was able to gain the power she needed to make her strong enough to steal Madoka's own, overthrowing the Law of Cycles with the goal of taking Madoka off the front lines and out of danger. Judging by his previous actions, it is speculated that Lucifer is attempting to lure Homura further into the ways of Chaos, and turn her into yet another general in his war against YHVH. While he is pleased by his success, Homura's clear regret for her actions have given him cause to worry. He has tried to act as a grounding force for her in this regard, convincing her that what she did was a great kindness for Madoka and lending an ear to her worries.
      • When it became known that he was behind the "Great Upheaval", Lucifer quickly became one of the most reviled gods in the Pantheon. Most of the good-aligned gods declared that he has officially crossed the Moral Event Horizon in their eyes and are going to see that he is brought to account for it. The forces of The GUAG are currently gearing up for a showdown with him, especially the Magical Girl Sisterhood. He manipulated and twisted Homura's pure feelings of love for Madoka and in their eyes, that is absolutely unforgivable. The only issue is that even inconveniencing him is a rather difficult task, and by doing so, they risk the direct, undivided attention of the Great Will. And Lucifer just won't stop smiling…
      • When approached for comment, Lucifer posed a chilling question:
      Lucifer: Is it not reasonable that Hope be tested and shattered if found wanting? Would you rather her powers have failed to protect her apostles at a critical moment? Her weakness nearly destroyed the Pantheon: I hope they remember that as they search for a leader truly capable of leading the Sisterhood.
      • Declared that he actually felt a little bad for them upon learning more about Madoka's replacement.
      • These plans were recently put on hold: YHVH's recent actions, namely threatening to subject the defenseless Madoka to a Fate Worse than Death to prevent her from ever regaining her former glory, have taken precedence as an immediate threat. No one is sure if this was a fortuitous circumstance for Lucifer, or if he actively planned for it; either way, he is perfectly content to observe the conflict and intervene only to prevent it from cooling into a cold war.
  • Recently he also seems to have taken an interest in another girl, the Intoner Zero, who with some help from Lucifer ascended as the One-Woman Army goddess, despite strong opposition from a number of gods intent on depriving the Lightbringer of as much support as they could.
  • Has finally encountered someone capable of astounding even him, in Shu Shirakawa, who managed to temporally annihilate both his and the still absent YHVH's temples with his Neo Granzon upon his arrival in the Pantheon. Lucifer seems genuinely confused as to why a man of such utter unpredictability is choosing to oppose rather than side with him. Shu, for his part, claims that he finds any deity who manipulates others for their cause, be they Lawful or Chaotic, to be a great personal offense to him and promises to send him, the Great Will, Nyarlathotep, Melkor, the 4 Chaos Gods and anyone else he deems distasteful to the inescapable oblivion of going beyond the event horizon of a black hole, someday. This did not have the desired reaction; instead, Shu only received raucous applause from Lucifer - his goal is to free Humankind from the yoke of all Gods, not rule it! Should Shu manage to enact such a feat without harming the human spirit, Lucifer has agreed to go quietly into his can. Now the matter remains of proving this is possible…
  • Is entirely aware that the only reason he ascended was due to the Main House wanting to keep closer tabs on him.
  • Has taken an interest in Isaac after seeing that he ascended by suffocating himself in a toy chest, not only sending him to the Pantheon, but also giving him a devil form. He sees Isaac as a possible son he could adopt for him to teach his ways to. The Pantheon is not only freaking out at the idea of a powerful, evil Isaac with Lucifer's help, but also because the SCP Foundation want Isaac as well, and a potential fight may break out between the two.
  • Never one to lose tabs on YHVH's movements, Lucifer soon learned about his latest scheme and decided to throw his monkey wrench in more subtly. By granting just a sliver of his own power to the Phantom Thief "Joker", the power of his Persona swelled to create an impressive homage to a counterpart of Lucifer himself to trump Yaldabaoth.
    • Afterwards, Lucifer was quite pleased and interested with the Phantom Thieves; despite not fully embracing Chaos, the Thieves were presented undeniably as the heroes of that story, and needless to say they were on his side, if only by proxy, earning his side more than a bit of favor from undecided deities. He cleverly maneuvered afterward to help ascend all of the Phantom Thieves, as while it wasn't clear whether they would ever join him or not, it would surely undermine the side of Law. This has sparked another conflict with YHVH, who had vowed to never let the Thieves into the Pantheon. More darkly, however, Lucifer has taken a special interest in Goro Akechi and his ideals, and is trying to figure out if he would be a good addition to the forces of Chaos.
    • While the Thieves and Akechi have all been ascended much to YHVH's dismay, Lucifer ultimately did not profit much from it, as the Thieves' leader noted the similarities between Lucifer and Akechi as well as his later alliance with Steve Armstrong as grounds enough to reject him. Despite this, Lucifer remains friendly toward the Thieves for standing opposed to absolute order and hopes that they will come around in due time.

  • 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 God of Evil, Yuga Khan, and his wife, Heggra, Uxas abhorred 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... Darkseid!
    • As the God 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 Trope Pantheon since its beginning, and every iteration of TV Tropes. It's unsure what, if anything, he's planning with this information.
    • 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. The possession of the Anti-Life Equation has allowed Darkseid to claim a seat for himself in the Main House, which puts him within striking distance of the Anti-Monitor, who he's been itching to have a rematch with. His move to the Main House was both because he came to earn the position, and in order for the powerful deities there to keep his power in check. This does not make anyone more comfortable.
    • 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.
  • 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.
  • Since draining the powers of and killing Zeus (and a number of his demigod children), and attempting to do the same to the rest of the Greek Pantheon, 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 Darkseid's daughter, 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. Heroes, 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 them 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. As mentioned above, although he is often referred to as the God of Evil and he does live up to that title very well, Darkseid is not actually the God of Evil, but of Tyranny. His father, Yuga Khan, is the actual God of Evil and, true to form, Yuga Khan is much, much worse than Darkseid is, both as a father (which is really saying something) and an individual. Darkseid hates his father with a passion, and this hatred justifiably extends to those that remind him of him, such as the Pantheon's God of Evil, Melkor, and Aku, the being made of evil.
  • Also has a spot in the Main House.
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!

    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, Index, 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 currently 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.
    • Unfortunately, being part of Bad-Guy Anon, several of the chaotic gods consider him a bad guy has-been. Angered at those accusations, he went directly to the Gladiator Pit and demanded a challenge. One look at his comical appearance and the crowd and the pit mocked and jeered him. His anger reaching its breaking point, he donned his Mask of Power, changed his wooden hammer to one made of steel and went on the attack. The rampage was so legendary, the impact silhouettes in the Gladiator Pit still remain where several gladiators and some Knights tried to overpower him to no avail and as a warning to never get on Dedede's bad side. Needless to say, the insults and jeers ceased.
  • 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.
  • Had recently 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.

    Theodore Roosevelt 
Theodore Roosevelt, God of Badass Presidents (Teddy, The Bull Moose)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/troosevelt3.jpg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A Bull Moose
  • 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
  • Allies: Nice Peter and EpicLLOYD, Captain America, Chuck Norris, Scrooge McDuck, Larry Daley (well, through a wax replica).
  • Enemies: All the Evil-aligned members of the House of Commerce.
  • Followers: Michael Wilson, James Marshall
  • 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 currently 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.
  • Has a good deal of respect for Tavi of Calderon, thanks to their shared backgrounds of overcoming extreme weakness in order to lead.
  • Is not (historically) actually a member of the Knights Templar, enemies of the Assassin Order. Ezio had to make absolutely sure with this one.
