  • O-Haruhi-Sama has been feeling bored lately. With the current going-ons in the Pantheon where everyone is getting traumatized left and right, she feels that she, Eru and Dream aren't really doing anything important despite having the highest positions possible. The gods way higher than them, Gygax and Arneson decided (after rolling two 20s together) that the Holy Trinity shall be no more. They were saddened, but ultimately not surprised and get packing right away.
    • After departing from the Main House, she found out that her friends have their temples in shambles due to poor maintenance and they are spending more time in the mortal realm. Not wanting to get lonely again, Haruhi decided to reunite with her friends once again by finding a new position: as the Divine Quintet of Genre Blending. At the Gods' Courthouse, she explains her reason for such a title; her series mixes a lot of genres from sci-fi to slice of life to romance among others to the point that there is no concrete genre to define the series. After some evaluating, the Court thinks she and her friends can take the title, since they have enough influence in the Pantheon for quite some time. When they reascended, Haruhi became overjoyed and declares that the SOS Brigade is back in action, much to Kyon's exasperation.
  • Haruhi also designates Tsuruya as herald due to hanging out with the Brigade very often. The latter is also excited that she gets to be part of a larger world. Some other deities might often see her as Churuya, her chibi self that often says, "Nyoron~".
  • Konata Izumi has always been the biggest advocate for O-Haruhi-Sama. She was overjoyed when the latter returned and gave full support to her and her friends. Likewise, Patricia Martin also offered to help them in school events, mostly of the anime and manga variety.
  • They also have good relations with the ESP Research Society, with Haruhi genuinely happy to meet Haruka Kotoura, a real esper in the flesh (well, everyone else knew already) and Kyon is chummy with Yoshihisa Manabe despite the latter's tendency to think in a perverse manner. Yuriko Mifune gets along with Mikuru and offers advice to her on how to seduce Kyon, like with obvious Fanservice though Mikuru takes it with a grain of salt considering Daichi Muroto's reactions to Yuriko's advances. Speaking of Daichi, he got along with Nagato and formed a club with her and Histoire, Blanc, Patchouli Knowledge and Yue Ayase because the Pantheons is too noisy and he wants to read quietly. All in all, Haruhi likes Haruka and her friends as long as they don't interfere with her plans (not that they want to, anyways).
  • Yuya Sakaki, Yuzu Hiiragi and their respective counterparts have befriended the Brigade after hearing about their many adventures. Even the Brigade is horrified by the events of the Dimensional War, as the threats of those like Jean-Michel Roger and Professor Leo Akaba have posed reminds them of various enemies they themselves have faced like Ryoko Asakura, Fujiwara, the Data Overmind and the Agency. (Luckily, Haruhi is still not aware of them.) Haruhi finds the war too much even for her and gave the counterparts full support of the SOS Brigade.
  • They also vehemently oppose Junko Enoshima and Monokuma for getting other students to kill each other in despair in a locked down school. Junko in turn thinks they also might be perfect toys to play with and is fascinated by the fact that Haruhi has god-like powers and a person like her is perfect to fall into despair, ignoring her sounding like Monaca. No one dares to tell Junko about the repercussions...
  • Exclusive to Haruhi:
    • A Genki Girl who formed the SOS Brigade after getting bored with joining the other clubs. Her aim with the club is meeting all sorts of creatures like aliens, time travelers and espers. She got what she wanted when she first ascended to the Pantheon, further exciting her more.
      • What no one is telling her is that she has god-like powers. If she did find out that she had already shaped her universe, this can break reality in and of itself and her ignorance to this is part of the Equilibrium. The Status Quo is making sure that she remains oblivious for as long as possible.
      • With this revelation, Yuki Terumi and Bernkastel think this is a good idea to shape the current reality into a bleaker and dark one. They first deceive her into thinking they mean no harm which works; then they make her believe their views of everyone should be suffering and it is all hopeless to change that. The result works too well; the Pantheons ended up becoming a Fire and Brimstone Hell and everyone is finding a safe place to take cover. Luckily this did not last, as Rachel, Rika and the LOLrangers quickly come to her aid with Rachel and Palutena giving the mischievious two a beatdown they deserve. Haruhi was too broken by the time they got to her, so they get Pollyanna Whittier's help to cheer her up. Pollyanna tells her to play 'The Glad Game' and not think about anything bad Terumi and Bernkastel told her. Haruhi believes her advice, causing the world around her to literally brighten once more and gained a Morality Pet in Pollyanna. When the rest of the Brigade heard about this, they fiercely fortify their temple and prepare for the next worst incident involving the Trollkaiger.
    • Probably not Kyon's girlfriend.
    • Some sects believe Sasaki should have ascended instead of Haruhi. But since Sasaki herself does not desire this or any other position in the pantheon, this would be a moot heresynote . Likewise, another group of schismatics believe Kyon is the true God of Tropes. He pretends not to hear them.
    • Back then, Haruhi used to always keeps her trusty Reset Button, which has resetted situations numerous times, such as how Shinji Ikari's moments of happiness get cut short from her pressing it. That is until an enraged Yui Ikari stormed through the Main House and almost killed her. Even though she didn't succeed, Yui did destroy the Reset Button, freeing her son.
    • She is considered to be the greatest shipmaster in the Pantheon. Many gods have been traumatized as a result. Maeda Keiji, the resident matchmaker greatly opposes this; while he does pair up people a lot, he does so with consideration of compatibility and prior relations while Haruhi ships everyone just because they have fanart on Deviant Art.
    • How did she had the Spy under her orders, you ask? Well, he tried to disguise himself as her after getting bored of impersonating John Carmack in the Main House and it took fifty seconds for her to catch him in the act. Instead of kicking him out with extreme prejudice, she gave him three certain conditions if he wanted to keep hanging around in there: NEVER reveal any info to any god regardless of alignment, stay invisible and check if anyone is following you in the Main House and simply follow her around. He accepted, though he is still embarrassed that he got caught very quickly.
      • The other members are still very wary of him though. Even if he already expressed that attacking them is a disobedience to O-Haruhi-Sama, his very nature will still spell trouble for them.
    • She may have a bit of an ego, but deep down she does care about those around her... unless you're her enemy. Aside from Terumi and Bernkastel, she is irritated that Monaca Towa share the same voice as her Monaca herself thinks Haruhi is not worth fighting considering the latter's powers... Haruhi finds most destroyer deities like Melkor, the Anti-Monitor, Zamasu and Nekron frightening and tries to stay far away from them. What makes matters worse is that the Pantheons can still be shaped to her will and once they learned this from Terumi and Bernkastel, they individually plan to kill her in order to cause chaos and destruction to all. And ever since his ascension, Lord Fuse is on her shitlist because of what he did to the place and her friends; Fuse also fears her as much as he fears Dream of the Endless and Gygax & Arneson because she too has power over imagination, his greatest weakness and also arguably more stronger than the previous three.
    • Haruhi is chummy with fellow clubrunner Miu Kazashiro, though Miu feels Haruhi can be a bit too overbearing. She also has good terms with the idol group Muse, even getting them to perform at events organized by the SOS Brigade. A few members, notably including Maki Nishikino are a bit wary around Haruhi's eccentricities, though Kyon assures them they will be tempered and kept in check.
    • Besides Pollyanna, Haruhi also befriended Miyuki Hoshizora for wanting everyone to be happy and Miyuki definitely did not bore her when they hang out together, thus gaining another Morality Pet. She also hanged out with Excel, a fellow Genki Girl who finds kinship with her. Aware of her uselessness, Haruhi tries to have Excel in groups Haruhi personally dislikes to which Excel, being Excel always accepts with enthusiasm and no questions.
    • Gained an Odd Friendship in Yoruichi Shihouin for reasons as of yet undisclosed. Haruhi even invites her to cosplay events once in a while, which Yoruichi do accept once her schedule has openings.
    • Haruhi rejoices at her return to the mortals of the United States with the release of her adventures on DVD and Blu-Ray, and legal streaming September 13th, 2016, after a long time of being away and legally unavailable.
  • Exclusive to Kyon:
    • A reserved guy who is responsible for Haruhi's club in the first place and regrets it ever since. And this isn't for comical reasons. Also an Unreliable Narrator due to how some events are given embellishments as well as giving too much bias. He's not bothering to refuting these claims. Regardless, he exists to balance out her energy and keep the world in a roughly constant shape.
    • He may have temporary falling outs with Haruhi like when her abuse on Mikuru reaching an apex, causing Kyon to snap and almost punched her, but he and Haruhi will ultimately reconcile in spite of that. They will not making anymore big moves other than that.
    • Kyon has met Fred Jones of the Mystery Gang, who was surprised that his adventures are super fantastical. Kyon at first thinks Fred's own adventures are just child's play compared to him... until he heard of the time Fred and his friends has beaten the Nibiru Entity. From that day onward, Kyon has nothing but respect for Fred.
    • He used to be the God of Normalcy since outside of the SOS Brigade he finds other parts of his life boring, and Naota Nandaba was the one who coined the trope's name. Because of this, the two became friends, being the Only Sane Men of their worlds. Likewise, Houtarou Oreki also shares Kyon's said trait along with being dismotivated by their boring worlds. Also joining the 'only sane men' club is Starfleet Captain Jean-Luc Picard, who often Face Palms at everything going wrong. Picard also sympathized with Kyon for the various threats he and his friends faces being all too similar to his and his crew's experiences with enemies from all over the galaxy.
    • Being a First-Person Smartass, he also got along with Peter Parker and Daria Morgendorffer as fellow Deadpan Snarkers. Daria is a bit baffled why would Kyon keep hanging around with the SOS Brigade if he's so unwilling to join their escapades, to which Kyon refuted that he does enjoy their presence after a fight with himself (yes, really) realizing that he prefers wacky adventures rather than a normal life and someone needs to temper them for once.
      • Speaking of not wanting to stay normal, Kyon also got along with Azuma Kazuki and his friends as they too refuse to live a boring life. Azuma even offered to defend the Brigade whenever a threat looms over them, which Kyon accepts, given the nature of the Pantheons.
    • Also got along with Mordecai and Rigby for constantly having weird things happen to them. Kyon even joins them in slacking off, playing video games and whatnot.
    • Ever since his encounter with Ryoko Asakura going after him, Kyon started to fear Yanderes for not wanting to relive it again. Unfortunately, Lilith Madlove refuse to give him a break by chasing him, getting mad for not accepting Asakura's love for him. It doesn't help that she is too reminiscent of Asakura.
      • This opposition also extends to the rest of the Yandere Squad, with the exception of Yuno Gasai (whenever she's not her 1st World self), Anna Kozuki and Yubel.
    • Because of his voice, Kyon gained an Odd Friendship in Ragna the Bloodedge who went through even worse hell than Kyon did. Together, they relate to one another about the most out-there experiences they had and Ragna even offered to defend Haruhi for Kyon after Terumi once broke her.
  • Exclusive to Mikuru:
    • A Cute Clumsy Girl who serves tea to the other Brigade members, often in a maid outfit. She is literally dragged into the club just to be the living embodiment of sex appeal.
    • Apart from standing around, looking cute, she is also a time traveler, with a star-shaped mole on her left chest. This causes her to befriend Ryotaro Nogami, Hiro Nakamura and the Doctor; the former can relate to her unluckiness and gentle, soft-spoken nature and the latter even let her join on his adventures just to cheer her up. Some speculate he is the reason Mikuru's future self is much colder...
    • She is suspected to be an alternate version of Orihime, due to similarity in appearance, personality, and English voice. Both of them deny being the same person, but they get along swimmingly and Orihime hopes she gets better treatment from her friends. Mikuru also has befriended Fuuka Yamagishi after they both shared similar stories of bullying from a close friend.
    • Has gotten along with Mikan Tsumiki for being a fellow Cute Clumsy Girl and having a lot of Fanservice moments and the similarly-named Aoi Asahina, who often shares donuts with her. Though she has nothing nice to say about Tsumugi Shirogane; Enoshima is one problem and Tsumugi sadly adds to that because of her end-goal of entertainment for herself, even being compared to Mikuru as her Good Counterpart of sorts. Tsumugi herself thinks she would be a perfect candidate in a killing game, though she have to get through the other Brigade members considering who and what they are.
    • Some believe she is the real force behind the creation of the band Houkago Tea Time. This is not the case, though Mikuru did befriended them especially Mio Akiyama for also being Reluctant Fanservice Girls. She oftens joins them in band rehearsals and school festivals.
    • Has gotten along with both Fluttershy and Nia Teppelin, who used to be one of her former followers. Fluttershy can relate a lot to Mikuru's clumsy and gentle nature while Nia is also kind enough to her and she never treated her like an object. Most gods in proximity, even the most stoic ones cannot handle the sheer sweetness of their free time together.
      • On a related note, Mikuru also befriended the Katawa Girls and by extension, Hisao Nakai as well. But watch out, seeing the girls having fun will also have you grinning wide and blushing beet red.
    • Those who make her cry will receive a sonorous reprimand from O-Haruhi-Sama. Kyon and Koizumi learned the hard way.
    • It seems that her future self will have already arranged for her placement in the pantheon. What could her plan be?
  • Exclusive to Nagato:
    • A really quiet girl with glasses who is actually a Humanoid Interface sent by the Data Overmind to observe Haruhi and her powers.
      • She does have emotions, she just doesn't express it much. This hasn't stop her from finding kinship with the person she was based on, Rei Ayanami and her Great Herald, Origami Tobiichi. The three are often seen hanging around in the Houses of Knowledge reading in total silence together, often with Daichi's reading club.
    • So leet, she can hack reality. Challenged O-Haruhi-sama once, but got beaten badly.(Or, at least, that's the official version. There are some who believe that Nagato would have destroyed Haruhi entirely had it not been for Kyon's influence. At any rate, nowadays she is much more preferably a follower of Kyon.)
    • She got along greatly with Spock who she once served as his High Priest. They also relate their problems of feeling emotions to each other and discusses their importance to their growth. Together, they become an excellent duo of logic and analysis, often with IF joining due to being a fellow Knowledge Broker.
    • Since they don't speak very often, Nagato got along well with Gordon Freeman even aiding him in attacks against the Combine and Dr. Wallace Breen. Also gained an Odd Friendship of sorts with Duke Togo for this very reason. Try not to expect them to talk much though, let alone with each other.
      Nagato, Togo and Freeman: ...
    • Got along with Miranda Campbell due to the two sharing a voice. She even offered to defend her and Coco from various threats of the Pantheons, which she accepts with gratitude.
    • Can play the guitar better than (almost) any human. If cheered on by the Ouendan, The Beatles can beat her. And maybe Buckaroo Banzai. Maybe. But Buckethead can.
    • Has another self from a timeline where she actually got together with Kyon. Nagato is considering opening up more to Kyon to emulate her alternate self's success.
  • Exclusive to Koizumi:
  • The SOS Brigade is also present in the House of Narrative.

Greater Gods

    Alma Wade 
Alma Wade, Goddess of Monsters Made from Tragic Pasts (Mother)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alma.jpg
  • Greater Goddess, Overdeity in the Almaverse
  • Symbol: Her face and hair
  • Theme Song: Alma's Music Box
  • Alignment: REALLY Chaotic Evil, though can cross into Chaotic Neutral where Erma is concerned
  • Portfolio: The Inhumane Definition of Rage, Reality Warper, Mind Raper, Humanoid Abomination, Determined to Kill Everything on Sight, Yandere, Similar to a certain Sadako, Her Name is "Soul", A Seemingly Different Type of Ghost, Tragic Child, Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds, Has 3 Different Forms
  • Domains: Death, Revenge, Destruction
  • Allies: Her Expies such as Hisako, Sadako, and especially Erma, and MAYBE Dark Danny. Also, she lets Samantha Maxis and Naughty Bear approach her sometimes.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Deathwing, Atrocitus, The Old Gods
  • Rivals: Broly, Lucy, Ermac, Arael, Alex Mercer
  • Fears: The Slender Man
  • Enemies: Are you kidding us? She hates EVERYONE.
  • Conflicting Opinion with: Khorne
  • Opposes: People who have a happy life to this day. On a more specific note, the Houses of Friendship and Happiness, including George Bailey.
  • Opposed by: Every single Hope Bringer in the Pantheon and anyone who got induced to Mind Rape, especially Asuka Langley Soryu/Asuka Langley Shikinami and Alex Mason
  • Applauded by: Majority of the House of Hatred
  • Special Relations: The Point Man (Her son), Erma (Alma's Morality Pet / Genuine ally)
  • On Good (or at least speaking terms with): The Human Child/Frisk, Wander
  • The child that was destroyed for the rest of her entire life, Alma Wade had a terrible childhood, from forced tests inside a vault, to being sunken down into amniotic fluid in her death and pulled out from her life support. All while being a child without reaching adulthood at all. The result from those tragic memories: A spirit entity hellbent on one goal: destruction of everything around her regardless of anything.
    • It may sound like how a Generic Doomsday Villain might work, but that's not the case. She had her psychic powers from as early as 8 years old, and her father (who was a high official of Armacham Technology Corporation's Project Origin) wanted to test her, through tasks inside the vault for the rest of her life. That wasn't the case though, as she was forced to stay in Project Origin, using DNA implants and the impregnation of her "children" through scientific ways. And when things got too much, they shut her down with her body still in the vault. This, along with her indomitable will made her able to survive death and became the monster who brought down the Apocalypse.
  • Her ascension is one the most brutal ascensions to date. After being killed by either one of her children, she ended up in an angry state, prompting the Court of the Gods to weaken her without ending her life again. A joint operation on the House of Magic, led by Jaina and Mithra assisted in in weakening her influence. While it was a success, there were heavy casualties, including Mithra's powers, half of the Court of the Gods, and even Asura himself. And worse, many scouts have reported that Alma already created a Temple inside the Pantheon.
    • The worst part out of all the events that happened is that The Old Gods have started communicating with her, prompting her to be a "maiden" to their deeds. No one knows that they are planning, but it obviously isn't pretty at any level.
    • The title also used to be the title of Frankenstein's Monster. But not until Alma yanked that title from him and a battle ensured. This has finally placed a permanent position for Alma.
  • With her presence, a certain Edward Richtofen has been stalking her day after day, curious of her potential powers. However, this has ended up mostly badly for Alma herself, as she cannot control a super crazy psychopath in terms of mind control, but on the other hand, she still can kill him with ease, particularly by placing him in the Almaverse. Richtofen had noticed the she works like a certain "Samantha Maxis".
    • Ermac on the other hand has been proven immune to Alma's mind raping abilities, thanks to having many souls in one mind. That doesn't make him immune to being physicaly mauled to death. The same can be said about Arael.
    • This got the ire of Asuka Langley Soryu/Asuka Langley Shikinami and Alex Mason, as they know Alma is much, much worse than the ones they dealt with. However, Alma has no agenda for them, meaning they don't get into fights.
  • As the spiritual personification of Anger, this has placed a somewhat "good" deal with Red Lantern Atrocitus, as he wields a ring made up of anger itself. Unfortunately, he can't give one to her because of two reasons. One, she has REALLY unstable powers and an attitude so complex, he can't handle her anger very well. And second, the aformentioned problem, added with a Red Lantern Ring will cause chaos, that even Atros himself cannot control.
    • This is the reason why she is feared by both the GUAG and GUAE, she has no intention of joining any side and is willing to kill when she pleases (or do anything she wants because she does it harshly). The GUAD did try to recruit her, but with horrible results.
    • Even the happiest people can't calm her down, and she even hates people of that personality. George Bailey has been recently harrassed by her as a show of her hate against them.
    • Also, as a note: Do NOT force her into sides, as what Johan Liebert and Raul Menendez can attest to, since they felt her wrath when they tried to recruit her in the Liebertarian Movement.
  • As a ghost (or a spirit entity), this has gotten her into sights of the Ghostbusters and Luigi. Problem is that she is almost way too hard to deal with. Let alone even used with the Ghostbuster's gear while she warps herself back into the Almaverse.
    • Dark Danny however has seen some "great" potential with Alma as a "ghost-in-chief" for his destructive plans. Seeing her powers, he decided to make a contract in terms to connect with each other. It somehow worked, but on one condition: He must bring the Point Man, Paxton Fettel and Michael Becket into the Pantheon or she will erradicate his entire ghostly presence. He reluctantly agreed, although he may have plans to avoid such fate.
    • Both Danny and Clockwork weren't impressed when they heard that Dark Danny was able to make a deal with Alma. Clockwork on the other hand pities her due to him seeing her backstory. Though he has no intentions of changing her fate, as he would rather watch time than manipulate or change its course.
  • Her presence has made majority of the GUAG's Hope Bringers try their best to contain her, only to be almost killed in the process. This event was considered a huge failure on the GUAG that they made it proof on why they shouldn't interfere with her:
    • Makoto Naegi was one of the first who tried to talk to her in order to calm her down. It didn't work, instead it made her pissed and she decided to rip his head off to half. This called for a second plan.
    • Akane Tsunemori did the second try on her, and talked to her in a calmly matter, which was a disaster, including Mind Raping her and controlling a pistol point-blank into her head. The reason why she didn't shoot was that she immediately went crazy and went off to a rampage on the GUAG HQ.
    • As a last resort, Gordon Freeman was tasked to take down this abomination for good. While Alma's Replica Soldiers failed to kill him, she instead teleported him into the Almaverse, where thousands of Replica Soldiers are already prepared to kill the One Freeman. And they did, because when the GUAG retrieved his body, he was already filled with bullets.
      • Despite the project being aborted by the GUAG, the instant Wander heard about Alam, he became determined himself to help her out, given his track record with other villains he helped out over to the side of good. Despite her constant assaults on him, he still refuses to let her suffer and keeps returning to try and pacify her, earning her wrath she has for him.
      • The human child/Frisk also joined Wander with helping Alma's spirit finally rest. So far, they made SOME progress with Alma (as they not only promise to not force her into a side, but also can No-Sell her attacks with high enough determination), but time will tell if they get any further. So far, Alma's thought on Frisk are...curious, at best, and is actually interested to see how far Frisk will go to help her out.
  • Ghetsis' life was made worse after her ascension, as her memories (which still has the mindset if her father torturing her life) are still filled with rage from the pains she received from her father, Harlan Wade, who is one his followers. It didn't help when he heard of the aformentioned follower's fate, and is currently calling help from the GUAE to suppress her, which is close to impossible.
    • Even Relius isn't spared from Alma's wrath, as his position makes him a perfect target for her rage, making Clover's future plans worthless while he has to defend himself from her.
  • Khorne has gotten very interested with the spirit thanks to her motive of destruction and bloodshed to her enemies. Unfortunately, she even doesn't like the Chaos God and that her powers almost rival his. He senses that this could be Magnus' doing.
    • But even Magnus has a hard time dealing with her, and even suffered a tie when both of them clashed, with thousands of Replica Soldiers and even a "visit" to the Almaverse almost losing his mind. He's pretty much pissed still about the result he had to put up against her. And he even still thinks that she was ordered by Lucy as a revenge gift.
    Magnus: "If anything I have to say about that psyker, is that I am both impressed AND distressed about her. And worse, she is none other than that Lucy's follower"
    • And it only got worse on Lucy's part, because it seems like that Alma wants to usurp her position. Many of her followers have heard one of Alma's screams to her:
    Alma: "I AM THE REAL ALMA. NOT YOU"
  • Surprisingly, she became one of the few people who got into the eyes of Deathwing, who saw her destructive potential and apocalyptic nature. It would have ended good for them, if Alma wasn't hostile to everyone (and yes Deathwing, that includes YOU).
    • There is however, a weakness on her sanity: Alma's tendencies to reproduce caused her downfall, which happened to an unascended Michael Becket, and with the birth of The Creep lost her powers, up to the point where her child, either Paxton Fettel consumed her or Point Man killed her. The only similarity that her and Deathwing share about their weaknesses is that, their respective weaknesses is hard to replicate.
      • For Alma herself, because both Michael, Point Man and Paxton aren't even ascended and the result after that weakness will leave the Pantheon into a wretched state. Therefore, its best to keep Alma in a weakened state, for a while.
    • There is one exception though, with recent research, it has been confirmed that Alma fears the Slender Man as it is a grave sign of The Creep, a.k.a her father. With this, they can use "it" as a warding symbol against her will.
    • And somehow, Valvatorez is a able to keep up against Alma in terms of both power and ferocity. Though, her encounter with him only happened once. And she is smart enough to not engage him all alone. Another thing that puzzles many other deities is if he can punch a ghost.
    • Uther the Lightbringer, Marona and Killia have been considered the other antitheses against Alma's powers. Uther's Exorcism works greatly against her, Marona is able to use her "Chartruese Miracle" powers to halt her, and Killia's Macrocosm is a definite killswitch for her. As a result, Alma is now plotting to end their existence first, by extending the Almaverse into the Pantheon and putting them in as the first victims of her wrath.
  • Worrisome enough, she has let a select few people approach her without harm, namely Samantha Maxis and Naughty Bear. While it's been speculated that the former had the more tragic backstory while mirroring Alma's own backstory a bit, the latter sympathizes with her for their terrible life that makes his own look nicer by comparison, while she was actually impressed the fact that he has done his own crusade against those that did him wrong all by himself. As a result, they are some of the very few people she doesn't plan on harming, and would even protect them should they get into too much trouble. It also helps that they also help her out with her own revenge plans from time to time, which just puts the Pantheon on an even greater level of high alert.
    Alma: "You are safe now.
  • For all of the worrying and panic Alma spreaded throughout the Pantheon, there was a tsunami of sighs of relief when they found something that actually puts her in a "semi-tranquil" state (read: when she'll still kill enemies on sights, but not bother with those whom don't want to bother her); Erma. Her visit to Alma's temple led to many a deity strapping down and bracing themselves for a deadly, catastrophic fight. However, there was actually a noticeable lack of anger or disgust from Alma's part; in fact, after receiving a teddy bear from Erma (it wasn't the same one that she lost, but it was the thought it counts) and seeing Erma as someone whom was just like her in terms of powers, and even downright to her own name, she decided to not only spare Erma, but to befriend her as well, willing to actually spend time with her. While some deities are shocked and awestruck to see Erma and Alma not only hang out with each other outside the temple, but also with Frisk and even Wander, whom tried to help her be happy even when she full on attacked them (though they have been warned by her to not annoy her in any way, and they seem to understand so far), they are learning to adapt quickly lest face her wrath for staring at her weirdly.
  • She once had a fight with Alex Mercer...wich surprisingly ended in a stalemate. Everyone expected Alma to win, but she couldn't kill Alex or cause any permanent physical damage to him because no matter how many times she destroyed him, he just kept regenerating himself back together. She then tried to use her powers to drive him insane via mind rape. She succeeded...sort of. Alex was already insane before, but because of that, he got even more pissed off at her. Alex, on the other hand, couldn't even touch Alma(duh, she's a ghost) and he didn't have anything that could truly damage her or any ghost deities. After a while, they both got bored and decided to stop fighting to go back to their respective temples.
  • Also has a spot in House of Monsters and Sadness.
  • "Kill them. Kill them all."

    Asura 
Asura, God of Unstoppable Rage (Asura the Destructor, Primarch of the Angry Marines)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_asura1_4267.png
  • Greater God, borderline Overdeity in his Mantra form, Overdeity in his Destructor form
  • Symbol: His Mantra Halo from when he was a member of The Eight Guardian Generals
  • Theme Songs: "In Your Belief", "Asura Unleashed" (When REALLY Angry), "One Who Destroys the Ring" (When transforming into his Destructor form)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Vengeance, Rage beyond all comprehension, Rescuing his daughter, using multiple arms, having Higher transformations than just his multi-armed form, Ungodly Strength, Energy Projection, Destroying Planet sized objects with his bare fists, planet-sized final form, Punching out Chakravartin
  • Followers: Ahria (Asura's very first), Bakumi Moriyama (a devotee of indomitable fury)
  • Allies: Son Goku, Dante, Other Combat! deities, Yasha, Augus, Naruto, Shizuo Heiwajima, Jin Kazama, Pit, Fred Rogers, Joel, Lucifer, Twilight Sparkle, Issei Hyodo, and assorted companions, people that are sensible enough not to make him angry in general
  • Daughter: Mithra
  • Enemies: Deus, [[spoiler:Chakravartin, Kratos, Relius Clover, Kazuya Mishima, Ghetsis Harmonia, Sasuke Uchiha, Needless Kane, Lu Bu, Gendo Ikari, Raynare, the GUAE Trollkaiger, basically anyone who manages to piss him off and isn't repentant about it
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Nagi Sanzen'in and Hinagiku Katsura (both one-sided on their part)
  • Good Counterpart to: Raul Menendez
  • Has a major fatherly instinct, and really wants his daughter Mithra to ascend to the pantheon to be with her. Is also pissed off at abusive parents, and has at one point almost destroyed the House of Family with the aid of Devil Jin, intent on destroying Relius Clover after witnessing the latter attempting to "experiment" on his son Carl. Kazuya and Heihachi Mishima weren't spared from Asura's tremendous anger, either.
  • Is often compared to Akuma. The two had a fight so massive that it took 500 years to conclude. Who won the fight is still up in the air.
  • Recently took Sweeney Todd's place as the God of Vengeance and Rage. To this day, no one dares to speak about it, as it was not pretty. Even most of the other violent deities in the house hid in terror after it happened.
  • Despite similarities between the two, Asura despises Kratos with a passion for his carelessness towards humanity in how he kills them with no remorse, even if they are innocent villagers. It brings to mind of other Demi-Gods that he had fought before ascending to this pantheon.
  • Since Asura has had less than ideal encounters with gods in his life, he rarely visits the pantheon or even his own temple. Although he does go to the Combat Pantheon every now and again to keep his skills sharp, and he has another temple there he uses to rest up.
    • On multiple occasions Asura has been seen with another fighter, Yasha when visiting the Combat Pantheon. Although he hasn't ascended (at least not yet) and he looks more calm then the raging Asura, the gods tend to give him space since he seems to be the only one on par with Asura. This thought has given Melkor much to worry about.
      • Unfortunately for Melkor, Deus's ascension ultimately led to Yasha becoming part of the Pantheon as well.
  • Asura gives his blessing to anyone who has been betrayed and seeks revenge. But this blessing comes with a warning, as he tells those who follow him that they should always be careful managing their rage, lest it consumes them. This doesn't mean that he accepts followers, due to his stance against gods.
    • He keeps a watchful eye on Guts, who almost lost himself to his own rage and vendetta against Griffith, for this very reason. This is also why he utterly dislikes Sasuke Uchiha because he thinks he's not worth carrying the torch of 'revenge' since his mind is too weak to handle it. "A whelp who doesn't know his place does not deserve to fight for rage and revenge!"
  • It is common knowledge in the pantheons that Asura, in the rare instance that he visits, should be given a very wide berth since an angry Asura is very bad news.
  • He's formed a strange friendship with Pit of all people. Probably because both of them actually like humans and have fought the entirety of their lives to protect them, plus having to fight some really Jerkass Gods in that effort. Some have also compared Asura's father instinct with Pit's desire to protect his goddess.
  • Making Asura mad has been voted "The most idiotic thing any can ever do" by the House of Mentalism, Asura has shown no objection since he knows that meant having more time to himself and his daughter. Even Hazama refuses to troll him, after a mere attempt caused Asura to use Hazama as target practice for his Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs for three whole days. Hazama was forced to apologize to prevent a bigger beatdown, and the two have agreed to never speak of it again.
    • There is also an incident regarding Lu Bu mocking him for his theme. The end result: Asura delivering the biggest No-Holds-Barred Beatdown the Pantheon has ever seen. And thus the universal agreement that pissing off Asura is a really bad idea.
  • Cell once attempted to absorb Asura in order to obtain his powers for himself. The result was a massive No-Holds-Barred Beatdown in which Asura completely floored Cell. Cell even used his Solar Kamehameha in an effort to kill him, and it looked for a moment it would work, but even that failed against Asura's Mantra form.
    • Cell apparently did receive a MASSIVE power boost afterward, when he recovered from near death. Whenever Asura appears, however, he immediately leaves for the safety of his temple.
  • Asura is one of the few beings to take Mister Rogers head on. They ended up tying and became good friends afterward.
  • Is actually pretty chill in regards to Lucifer, especially because they both share the same ideas about giving any asshole from above a good ass kicking for trying to mess with them or those under their protection, and since one of Lucifer's similarly named generals fell trying to oppose YHVH, Asura offered his help if Lucifer decides to take on heaven again (presuming Naoki Kashima isn't around to lead Lucifer's armies) and put his knuckles across the Great Will's face.
  • Several Evil deities, thinking they can defeat him while he's armless, have sent entire armies' worth of mooks. They taunt him, saying they'll take Mithra away from him again. Armed with only a shard of his master's sword, he eventually got so pissed off that this happened, resulting in a giant arm that wiped out hundreds of millions of minions like rice paper. Even armless, it shows Asura shouldn't be fucked with.
  • Has learned to suppress his Berserker/Wrath form by meditating with Cosmos. That being said, he has a MUCH easier time in accessing his Mantra form, terrifying almost everybody in the Pantheon.
  • Upon learning of the ascension of Gohma Vlitra, Asura has decided to form a task force in order to end it once and for all. Aside from Yasha (who helped him slay the beast), Travis Touchdown, Ryu Hayabusa, Kratos (albeit reluctant), Goku and Augus (just to be able to fight Asura after all is done) have joined him.
  • Despite acknowledging they're all very good guys, Asura originally refused to be on friendly terms with the Chick Magnet Quartet, thinking that they could "corrupt" his daughter. He has even made the Quartet's leader, Hyodo Issei, promise him to never pursue Mithra, and beaten up Hayate Ayasaki when he stumbled onto Mithra after mistaking her for her Ojou-sama, Nagi Sanzen'in. The latter event, however, landed Asura on Nagi's shit list when she ascended to the Pantheon, and also earned him the mistrust of Hinagiku Katsura. Since then, Asura has decided to befriend the Chick Magnet Quartet and apologized to Hayate for his beatdown. Surprisingly enough, Asura has also given his blessing to Issei, for how he gets enraged whenever his harem is hurt.
    • After learning what Issei's ex-girlfriend Raynare did to him to give him self-loathing issues, Asura was imminently reminded of what his own former comrades did to him and is ready to support Issei anyway possible.
  • His absolutely gigantic Destructor form has piqued the interest of the Mecha piloting gods to try to take on said form. He has yet to respond to the challenges but notes it as being interesting.
  • His reputation as the most Badass member of the Pantheon was cemented with his battle and victory against The Golden Spider (aka Chakravartin, the Creator).
  • Asura, despite his overwhelming power, has no real political power in the pantheon, like Flandre Scarlet. Unlike Flandre, however, this is mostly out of choice. We use the word mostly because whenever he is asked for a solution to any given problem, he always answers: "Punch it." Now granted this solution worked for most of his problems, but the pantheons' problems are a little more complicated.
  • It was noted by the pantheon that when he and Evil Ryu did a Shun Goku Satsu against each other, The Kanji for "anger/hatred" popped up during the fight, which translates out to "Ikari". Some have wondered what would happen if an angry Asura and an angry Shinji Ikari fought (although Shinji's name is written with a completely different kanji)...
  • When asked about his opinion on Shinji Ikari's most recent actions he stated that although sacrificing the rest of the world along with himself was not the "right" thing to do he then admitted that if he and Mithra were in the same positions that Shinji and Rei were in he would have done the same. He then said that hoped that if Shinji decided to use his newfound power to protect those dear to him at all costs then he would have Asura's full backing.
  • Occasionally lends his strength to the likes of Yu Narukami as the leader of Sun Arcana. Asura said he's going to need it, especially in his upcoming battle against Nyarlathotep.
  • Has been seen speaking with Caius Ballad a few times. Asura has shown a level of respect to Caius for his concern over Yeul though whether or not he's aware of the lengths Caius took for her is unknown.
  • Gets along well with Eren, considering the two have a few similarities in losing a loved member of a family, being easily angered which is hardly a good option for an offender and being able to increase in size and power.
  • Asura absolutely loathes Sweet Tooth, both for the fact that he's a gleefully unrepentant serial killer, and that he happily killed his own family.
  • Both he and Kenshiro have expressed great respect for each other due to their similar family relations, morals, and fighting styles. Although neither has vocalized it out loud, and since Ryu and Akuma have fought Asura to standstills, every member of the Pantheon (including some knowledgeable mortal combatants) secretly wish for and dread the day both Asura and Kenshiro will cross fists.
  • Just as many wish to see an epic duel between Asura and Kenshiro, equal interest is for Simon the Digger and Asura to challenge each other, what with their ability to become ever more powerful, attain planet-sized forms, and destroy creator-gods of their respective universes. Some whisper of a prophecy that the resulting explosion from their fists making first contact will create several new universes made of awesome and GAR (but result in an unsatisfactory draw).
  • Is happy that Twilight Sparkle visits Mithra whenever he's away, giving him peace of mind that his daughter won't be lonely. Though he tries to stay out of the same room with the pony at all costs due to her sounding eerily like his late wife Durga.
  • He is one of the few people outside of the God Emperor of Mankind who has earned the loyalty of Space Marines. In fact, one specific group even sees him as their Primarch. They are known as The Angry Marines
    • This has begun to worry Asura to some degree. Not only because those marines are a group of completely uncontrollable berserkers, but that it also creates the possibility that he might be one of the sons of the God Emperor.
  • After an encounter with Yhwach, the Vandenreich Emperor earned the demigod's contempt for his treatment of his subordinates, and sees him as no different from the Seven Deities for absorbing the souls of others upon death to empower him.
  • Has learned that there exists an opposite of himself within someone named Raul Menendez, who like Asura lost everything he loved. However, while Asura sympathies with everything that has happened to him, he cannot except the fact that Raul has decided to take out his anger on over one else. Asura swears that he will put a stop to Raul's madness.
  • Many fear the day that three of the angriest deities (Guts, Kratos and Asura) might fuse together to create not only the strongest deity in existence but also the angriest being in existence. In fact, some deities have stated that if that ever happened, the entire world would be obliterated by the being's sheer rage.
  • Also has spots in the Houses of Combat and Emotion.

One of Santa's many incarnations
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Pantheon, not a being was stirring, no, not anyone. Even those that don't sleep were caught unaware, as a reedier sleigh flew through the air. Presents appeared in the most secure places, leaving surprise on everydeities faces. Only the wicked had cause to complain, as they got but coal for causing others pain. Afterwards Santa Clause stepped forward to say, now that' he's here, he intended to stay. With such great renown and complete adorations, he was quickly ascended to prominent stations. The spiteful and wicked continued to sneer, but this was drowned out by holiday cheer.
