  • The old gods were creatures who come from the void with the mission of corrupting the world of Azeroth, tampering with the creations of the Titans in the process, which eventually sparked a war that left 3 of them imprisoned and one dead. Since then, their corruption spread to whenever they reside and they are still planning to destroy everything for the sake of Chaos. This creatures were found in the pantheon once and it took the entire effort of the GUAG aided by the four dragon aspects (Including Malygos) to imprison them. It is generally advised to avoid visiting them as no one returns fully well from an Old God's corruption.
  • After hearing about these ungodly abominations, The Hunter decided to end their lifes for good. However, when they were about to enter the Gods temple, they were immediately confronted by Deathwing and they were forced to retreat as he wasn't a match for the Death Aspect. They had never anticipated that the dragon was one of the biggest pawns of the Old Gods.
    • Besides Deathwing, Ragnaros also decided to serve his old masters once again which alarmed many people in the Pantheon, since they weren't aware the elemental lord used to serve the old Gods. This has made the GUAG to gather enough forces just in case these creatures decided to strike the Pantheon again.
    • When Cho'Gall heard that the Old Gods had acended, he was very quick to start visiting their temples, as he is already too corrupt to suffer any ill affects. He has been noted to favor C'Thun, though he makes an effort to visit each temple once a day.
  • It is forbidden in its ENTIRETY to ever try to kill any of the Old Gods, as killing them would leave nasty consequences in the Pantheon AND given the nature of the Pantheon regarding Death, then the Old Ones could potentially regain all the power they lost after their resurrection.
  • They are also reffered as "The Elder Gods" which caught Raiden by surprise, since he didn't expect to find his masters ascended. When he found out who these Elder Gods were about, he was horrified of the damage they had caused and refuses to compare these Eldritch creatures with his Homeworld's Elder Gods.
  • Their objective is simple, corrupt every place of the pantheon and cause unending chaos forever. That's the reason why the are always compered to the Chaos Gods as their objectives are similar and plus, they are also Eldritch Abominations. It was no surprise when both camps joined forces to put in motion a plan to corrupt the entire pantheon.
  • The elder gods have also taken interest in learning about their counterparts of Yharnam, The Great Old Ones. While both groups communicate without issue at all, the latter have been hesitant to collaborate with the Old Gods. Of course they don't mind at the moment, but later down the road the Old Gods have considered Brainwashing these creatures into submission when the time comes
  • They found common ground with the Elder Dragons of Tyria, since they share the same abilities to warp the surrounding they inhabit and also feed on magic. However, none of the dragons are interesting on serving the Elder Gods but there is still a rivalry going with both groups.
  • They also seems to get along with fellow lovecraftian deities given their similarities. Remarkably, C'Thun seems to get along with Cthulhu while Yogg-Saron has formed an alliance with Yogg-sothoth for very particular reasons.
  • Rumors say that their influence has been lingering around a peaceful tavern where various people from Azeroth gather to relax. While their plans are not very clear at the moment, they have already "corrupted" many of its frequent visitors, much to the shock of various deities.
    • However, many breath a sigh of relieve when they discovered that when the Old Gods visit this place, they're the ones that are under the control of the heroes that reside there: Jaina, Malfurion, Alleria, Uther, Valeera, Garrosh, Gul'dan, Rexxar and Thrall.
  • Discord once tried to befriend them what with them being gods of chaos. But was horrified when he found out that their brand of chaos was endless death and destruction rather than the odd and wacky and thus became enemies. Solidified by Yogg-Saron calling Discord's brand of chaos childish and amateurish.
  • Exclusive to C'Thun:
    • Ever since his defeat against the Titans, C'thun has been kept imprisoned beneath Azeroth in one of their research facilities, in what would later become the continent of Kalimdor. He did return once but eventually he was defeated by a group of adventurers, which is no easy task for any mortal. His eventual ascension would allow him to get in motion a plan to drive to insanity many potentially useful gods to use as Pawns.
    • His appearance mostly consist as a giant eye surrounded by many tentacles. This made him be approached by another abomination by the name of Monoculus, which happen to be a floating eye that misteriously seems to speak a similar language that C'thun understands.
      • Another deity he has allied himself with was Sauron, given that his Eye form is very similar to C'thun's default form
    • Given that he had a race of insectoid creatures as pawns, whose names are the aquir and Quiraji, The old one was able to make an alliance with Queen Sectonia, given that she has similarities with said creatures that used to serve him. This didn't sit well on kirby but he is careful to approach this alliance since the Elder Gods are not creatures that he thinks he could take by himself.
    • Has a devoted cult by the name of The Twilight Hammer that are really loyal to him and his brethen (but most importantly, him). This in turn made the House of FAITH very careful if it happened that some members were already among them
    • A special rule he made for becoming a disciple of him is to shout his name three times.
    "C'Thun, C'THUN, C'THUN!"
  • Exclusive to Yogg-Saron:
    • Yogg-Saron is known as one of the most malevolents of the Elder gods. He was imprisoned in the depths of the city of Ulduar and the titans assigned specific watchers to keep an eye on him. While his situation in the pantheon is no different to how he was in Azeroth, it should be said that his powers are able to drive insane almost anyone dumb enough to get near him. As a matter of fact, all of his guardians ended up sucumbing to him
    • There has been rumors that wispers can be heard near his temple, which is not a good sign mind you, as he could easily Mind Rape anyone close to his range and make you his slave. It is possible to fight his influence but is not adviced in the slightest.
    • It is said that Yogg-Saron is very closely related to the creature known as Hastur, since they both share the Moniker of "The Unspeakable one". While Hastur isn't found in the pantheon at the moment, Old man Henderson has tried to take down Yogg-Saron thinking he is a possible reincarnation of Hastur. So far the Henderson has been unsuccessful, since he cannot get past Deathwing and is getting increasingly annoyed by the black dragon.
    • Yogg-saron is also known as "The God of Death" given how he feeds of the essence of the Undead and Death itself. That's why the House of Life and Death struggles to fend off him in hopes that he doesn't corrupt the house or else the nature of Death in the pantheon could really be corrupted by his mere presence. Undead gods also stay far away of the Elder God's reach.
      • However, he did got himself a fierce opposition from other Grim reapers just to keep the natural balance of death intact. Others, like Death the Horseman, are only interested in absorving the creatures powers.
    • He also has control over the N'raqui, also known as the Faceless ones, Humanoid creatures that resembles squids. They have been under conflict with the Scourge given that they are closely located to the old city of Azjol'nerub, where the nerubians hail from. Yogg-Saron has only limited himself to taunt the Lich King of his eventual fate and said that his forces will eventually succumb to his corruption.
    Yogg-Saron: No King rules forever...
    • Has an incredible control over magic, so powerful he might turn a recently cast spell into something he desires. However, his insanity prevents him from focusing in one targer, prefering to rain destruction all around him, even to the point of harming himself.
      • Given his random nature, he became best buds with the RNG.
    • "Bow down before the God of Death".
  • Exclusive to N'Zoth:
    • N'Zoth happens to be the entity behind Neltharion's corruption and eventual descent to Madness, which he later be bound to make Azeroth tremble. Rumors say that he inhabits the depths of the Oceans of Azeroth.
    • N'Zoth whole motivations, while similar to the rest of the Elder ones, are a complete mystery to everyone. He happens to be one of the few ascendants that no one has ever saw in person. That doesn't mean that his presence is not there and it is said that he can be heard whispering in either the House of Water & Moisture or Aquatic Life but no is certain if he is there.
      • Until a expedition led by Aquaman was made in order to investigate said whispers. To his horror, what they found was the real N'Zoth, who was about to transform both houses into his domain. A collective effort from all the members of said houses plus an assistance from the GUAG was enough to force The Corruptor to flee, but has since relocated with his fellow Old Gods.
    • He doesn't get particularly well with his brethen. Nobody knows why but he has wage war with both C'Thun and Yogg-Saron and their relationship has not improved in the slightest. The most common explanation is that their twisted minds make them confront each other just for their depraved entertainment.
    • N'Zoth was one of the principal sources of Corruption in the Emerald Dream and many fear that he may be able to dwell into the dreams of people too. That's why he enlisted various entities related to Nightmare, such as Atropos or Freddy Krueger.
    • He once tried to Mind Rape Darkrai into submission since he saw potential in his nightmare inducing abilities. However, Ysera was quick to intercept before he took control and saved Darkrai from his clutches.
      • As a result, Ysera has created a group specialized in countering N'Zoth Dream Corruption. So far, Brightwing, Darkrai, NiGHTS and Soldier #25954 have joined her cause. Malfurion and Tyrande have also considered lending a hand in case the Emerald Dream is in danger.
    • "I taste the essence of your soul".
  • Exclusive to Y'Shaarj:
    • Y'Shaarj was the most powerful and wicked of the Old Gods and thus, the Titans were forced to put an end to his life. With the last of his forces, he was able to create the Sha, a race of creatures that represent the bad emotions of the world and eternally cursed Pandaria with their presence.
    • Given that Y'Shaarj was Killed Off for Real and his essence disappeared entirely from his homeworld, his presence in the Pantheon is difficult to pin point, since he seems to be torn in and out of the space and time of these lands. It still doesn't negate his powers and as such has employed the mantids to figure a way to make him materialize in this plane.
      • Luckily, (And unfortunately for the rest of the Pantheon) his remains were able to be restored. Nobody is sure how he was able to be revived since the House of Life and Death made themselves sure to not let him return to the mortal plane. It's theorized that Nefarian is behind his revival, given the Dragon's own mysterious revival as well.
    • As stated earlier, he is in control of the mantids, a race of insectoid creatures that inhabit Pandaria and have been in constant war with the local Pandaren. However, there seems to be one particular Mantid that refuses to serve him and that would be Scyther. He has been trying to control the Pokémon with little result so far.
    • Has kind of a strained relationship with Garrosh Hellscream, given that he is responsible for his death after the orc's defeat in Ogrimmar. However, he has offered him an alliance in case he wants to taste the power of Y'Shaarj once more.
    • The Emotions are horrified that Y'Shaarj basically created the Sha, an Evil Counterpart of them after his demise. He however does not care about their opinion and has an interest in corrupting the emotions to do his bidding, which could have catastrophic results.
    • There is also a Hidden group of Sha that he personally released on the internet. The infection was so great that many pages had fallen pray to it and not even this is safe from... {◕ ◡ ◕}
    • "Gorge your hatred, embrace your rage"
  • They are also present in the House of Otherness.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ereshkigal.jpg
As a Lancer Pseudo-Servant 
  • Greater Goddess (Overdeity in the Underworld)
  • Symbol: The word "lady" or "queen" in cuneiform
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (Chaotic Evil (kinda) as a Pseudo-Servant)
  • Portfolio: Ruler of the Underworld, Balancing Death's Books, Dark Is Not Evil, The High Queen, Hot as Hell, Loves Nergal because she can't control him, Judges the dead, Noble Demon, Reasonable Authority Figure, Rivals with her sister
  • Domain(s): Death, Judgement, Balance
  • Herald: Nergal (her husband)
  • Special Relationship: Inanna/Ishtar (her sister)
  • Allies: The Bull of Heaven, Master of Chaldea, Hades, Persephone, Osiris, Anubis, Hel, Hela, Hecate, Thor, Apollo, Quetzalcoatl
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Rin Tohsaka, Set, Ah Puch, Mephisto, Meridia
  • Enemies: Tiamat (both of them), Nagash the Undying, Nekron, Zhaitan, Kel'Thuzad, Molag Bal, Bowser
  • Ereshkigal is the Mesopotamian Goddess of the Underworld and the older sister of Inanna/Ishtar, who famously traveled into the Underworld in an attempt to overthrow Ereshkigal, though she ultimately didn't succeed. As a young girl, she was kidnapped by a dragon named Kur and taken to the Underworld, where she was forced to become the queen of the plane for eternity. Ereshkigal ruled over the dead from her palace Ganzir, which was located at the entrance to the underworld and guarded by seven gates which were kept by her faithful servant Neti. Her power also extended to the living world where, in magical ceremony, she liberated the sick possessed of evil spirits.
    • Souls who had left the world of the living were not supposed to return, and Ereshkigal made certain they remained where they belonged. If a ghost should come back to haunt the living, one could be sure it was for a good reason and with Ereshkigal's permission. The main reasons for a haunting were improper burial of the dead or impious acts which had gone unpunished. As queen and guardian of the dead, Ereshkigal stood as a potent reminder to the living to observe the proper rites and rituals in their lives and to act in the best interests of their immediate and larger communities.
    • Her first husband was the Great Bull of Heaven, Gugalana, who was eventually killed by the heroes Enkidu and Gilgamesh. Later on, Ereshkigal fell in love with Nergal, god of war and plague, who sent her food offerings during a banquet. As only the dead could remain in the underworld, he was forced to leave her. Ereshkigal was so irritated by his departure that she threatened to bring all the dead back to life. Nergal later returned to the Underworld to dethrone her to prevent the troubles she threatened to cause, but she managed to stop him from killing her by agreeing to becoming his wife and share her power with him. In actuality, she preferred it that way, because she always felt alone in her kingdom.
  • Ereshkigal originally entered the Pantheon shortly after her sister did. Hoping to keep Inanna-Ishtar under control, the gods assigned both her and Ereshkigal as Rin Tohsaka's heralds upon learning of their shared history, although none of them liked the arrangement. Eventually, after Inanna-Ishtar ascended, Ereshkigal successfully argued for her own ascension in order to continue keeping an eye on her sister.
  • Aside from her continued rivalry with Inanna-Ishtar, Ereshkigal was pleasantly surprised to be reunited with her first husband, the Bull of Heaven. Although she has since remarried to Nergal, she remains on good terms with him. However, when she learned that two versions of Tiamat were also present, she agreed to put aside her grievances with her sister in order to combat them.
  • Although she was recorded in the Throne of Heroes and became a Servant, she normally can't be summoned due to being a major goddess. However, she managed to bypass this restriction by instead possessing the body of Rin Tohsaka as a Pseudo-Servant. Unlike her sister, Ereshkigal tends to be on friendlier terms with Rin, as well as respecting her powers as a magus. Due to Rin's influence, her more possessive and yandere qualities mellow out and she's better able at displaying her more kind, caring and sincere side. Although she still tries to cultivate the image of a cold, uncaring goddess of the underworld, her attempts at doing so are hampered by her gigantic crush on the Master of Chaldea and instead she tends to come across as both adorable and pretty silly.
  • She's on good terms with fellow Underworld rulers and judges such as Hades, Persephone, Osiris, Anubis, Hel and Hela. Having generally put her duty as ruler above all else, including her own desires, she was quite happy to finally encounter kindred spirits who understand her struggle and can offer advice and companionship. However, she has also occasionally argued with Hades and Hela whenever they start acting villainous and try to usurp other gods, as she considers that to be both a waste of time and an unecessary endangerment of living people.
  • Ereshkigal became interested in meeting Hecate after being told that people tend to conflate the two of them due to them both being goddesses associated with the underworld, darkness and magic. However, upon actually meeting each other, they found that they had little in common. Nonetheless, they remain on good terms.
  • On one occasion, Ereshkigal teamed up with several Underworld deities and Hell-Lords, including Set, Ah Puch and Mephisto among others. Meeting up in Hades' realm, they had decided to merge their respective realms, thus increasing their power, and to begin taking in new souls. However, when they performed a ritual to create the nexus of the netherworlds, they also summoned the Demogorge, the God-Eater, who began consuming them one by one. Fortunately, a group of gods, which included Thor, Apollo and Quetzalcoatl, managed to defeat the Demogorge, forcing him to spit everyone, including Ereshkigal, back out. Ereshkigal has remained grateful to them for saving her and has since promised to refrain from trying to merge her realm with those of the others.
  • Due to the fact that part of her duty consists of ensuring that the dead stay in the Underworld, only allowed to leave with her permission, she quickly came to dislike necromancers such as Nagash the Undying, Nekron, Zhaitan and Kel'Thuzad.
  • She quickly became enemies with Molag Bal considering he specifically created the concept of undeath as a whole by raping a Nede woman just to spite Arkay, the God of Life and Death. To combat Molag Bal, Ereshkigal reluctantly allied with Meridia, his Arch-Enemy. While Meridia possesses a hatred for the undead, she goes straight into overzealousness when committing to their destruction as she is willing to sacrifice the living if it means achieving a greater good, even if that includes her own loyal followers. While Meridia respects Ereshkigal's dedication to her duty, the two still tend to argue due to Meridia's belief that everything and anything she does is good and anyone who disagrees is clearly in the wrong.
  • Having been kidnapped by a dragon as a young girl, Ereshkigal became enemies with Bowser, who is quite well-known for frequently kidnapping Princess Peach. Not wanting to have a confrontation with her, he generally tries to stay out of her way.

  • Intrigues: The Great Old Ones and Outer Gods
  • Scared of: ZONE
  • Warier by: The South Park kids
  • Under watch of: SCP Foundation
  • In their quest to defeat the remaining Demon Pillars, Chaldea Security Organization travelled to the Salem Singularity where the time period takes place during the Witch Trials. There, they met Abigail Williams and her mysterious friend Lavinia Whateley, who seem to have an odd connection of what's going on in the Singularity. Strange events were occuring around it such as the appearance of ghouls and the different deaths of Servants. The Demon Pillar of the Singularity, Raum, reveals that the entire Singularity is a ploy to make its creation, Abigail Williams, to connect with the host within her body. Embracing her full power because of Sanson’s death and wanting to destroy Salem and trying to destroy the world to help the people and find redemption for herself, she was then riddled with guilt after being stopped by Chaldea and travelled with the real Randolph Carter to find Lavinia and Sanson (whom she succeeded in recovering and is now in Chaldea again).
    • The Abigail that appeared in Chaldea is a completely different version from the Salem self, due to the circumstances of the Summoning System and because of that, Chaldea Abigail doesn’t have her memories in the Salem Singularity and never knew the sources of her powers. The Salem Abigail and the Master of Chaldea have met again in Chaldea Abigail’s dream. The Salem Abigail wanted the Master to come with her, but he couldn’t because of his duty, which causes an battle to occur between the two of them. After the battle ended, Salem Abigail apologized to the Master because of how their reunion leads up to and decides to leave to meet Lavinia again, with the Master promising that they’ll meet again someday.
  • The Master of Chaldea decided to bring along Abigail Williams with him after she demanded him to take her on a tour around the Pantheon. Fascinated by the place she is in, she wanted to make new friends. She asked the Master if he could ascend her so she could gain free reign to travel around and meet new people. Although he’s at first hesitant, he decided to allow her request as he wants to make her happy and after recommending her to the Court of Gods, her ascension has finally commenced.
  • She is excited to meet up with her good friend Paul Bunyan again and have took little trips to eat pancake together. She shares a really odd friendship with Gilles de Rais as he is a child serial killer, but Abigail seems to appreciate Gilles' kindness and allows herself to have a friendship with him.
  • Being a good friend of King David and the Queen of Sheba, she is excited at the prospect of meeting King Solomon. The creator of the magus system is happy to see how he thinks of her fond memories with his father and wife and how she thinks highly of him. Despite his desire to help Abigail’s situation, he couldn’t return to Chaldea and offer them his help in need, but Abigail stated that it’s okay and that she has all the help she needed and is happy where she is right now.
  • Due to being a vessel of a differently named Yog-Sothoth, all of the ascended Great Old Ones and Outer Gods became interested in possessing different humans to cause much more trouble for themselves. This greatly terrifies Abigail, as while she never understood the source of the problem as she is unaware of the power inside her, she knew that what they are planning to do is bad news.
  • Lovecraft himself would have been intrigued and even terrified of her due to being the destined vessel of one of his creations. However, if it wasn’t for the fact that she is a commoner and considering many of the antagonists in his works are people like them, his interest in her greatly diminished. This greatly offended the Master, who thinks that Lovecraft’s reason for doing so is extremely offensive and has told her to stay away from him.
  • As much as she loves tentacles, ZONE doesn’t want to create material that involves children and doesn’t want to create any artwork of Abigail to keep her safe. Abigail is greatly afraid of ZONE upon hearing about it and thinks that she is a weird adult.
  • Being the vessel of a powerful creature feared by many, Naruto and Gaara decided to see her to know about her control with the host. While Abigail understood there’s something wrong with her, she is unaware of the source of the power and thus, she couldn’t give the duo answers. That doesn’t stop them from becoming friends with her and are won by how adorable and kindhearted she can be. They also want to help her to have a complete control of her host, but since Abigail is unaware of the source of her powers and Outer Gods are out of their expertise, they couldn’t really help much.
  • Hearing that someone else was destined to become a vessel of a feared figure, Leah approached Abigail to see what was going on. The explanation she got from the Master of Chaldea caused her to pity the girl in front of her and how she couldn’t easily understand her power and because of that, she’s afraid of using it. She has made it her pride to take care of Abigail and give her the happiness that she truly deserved as she doesn’t want the Chaldean version to end up like the Singularity version. Abigail is happy that she made an another friend and wants to give her something for taking care of her.
  • Robin also pitied her for the same reasons that Leah did, and as such, he decided to study the vessel within her based on what he had been given from Chaldea so that she could have complete control of her host and not give in to his influence. This made Abigail proud, even if she couldn’t understand why he did it, but she appreciates his efforts of wanting to help her nonetheless.
  • She has a teddy bear named Hugo that is always by her side, she even used him to attack her enemies, and her Salem counterpart gave an another teddy bear named Migo to her dear friend, Lavinia Whateley. Thus, when she saw Annie Hastur attacking her enemies with her teddy bear, she did the same thing and asked if they could switch teddy bears. Though she was shocked by Abigail’s request, she immediately complied and Abigail corners her every time they see each other so that they could play with each other. Even after learning of the host within her body, that doesn’t stop Annie from befriending Abigail as she knew that she is nothing like him and the two have struck a close friendship.
  • Having encountered a lot of eldritch abominations in her lifetime, The Doctor wanted to help Abigail of her problem and having encountered Yog-Sothoth once, she was prepared for it. She is willing to help the Servant on how to control her host and tries to come up with all the answers for it. Both the Master of Chaldea and Abigail appreciate her help and allows her to continue her research, in hopes that Abigail won’t give in to the latter’s host’s control.
  • Having a connection with Yog-Sothoth through the Azure Grimoire, Ragna’s avatar encountered Abigail because of that. Knowing that she is nothing like her host due to being a vessel, he treated her nicely and doesn’t mind her company. Abigail is excited at gaining another friend and despite how he acts around her friends, she doesn’t mind it.
  • Being the living Silver Key and a vessel of a differently named Yog-Sothoth, Mugen Yogumura is surprised at her existence, but she also plays being scared of her since sealing her powers is a temporal solution but she also plays being Willfully Weak to balance it all out. In fact, she’s excited to see a living Silver Key in the Pantheon and is willing to become good friends with Abby to help her problem. Despite being creeped out by Mugen’s laughter, Abigail wants to become friends with her and being the one person who could possibly be the one to solve it, she was happy for it.
  • Upon hearing that she is the vessel of a Lovecraftian deity, the South Park kids (particularly those who have superhero identities) immediately became wary of her due to their experiences with Cthulhu and Shub-Niggurath. Even with the knowledge that Abigail is nothing like her host and is pretty much a compassionate girl who doesn’t want to do harm, they fear the day that she will be completely controlled by her host and causing destruction and even some of them told the Master of Chaldea to eased Abigail if it ever happened.
  • Being an organization that watched numerous strange, but dangerous entities, the SCP Foundation decided to watch her in the hopes she wouldn’t lose control and wreck havoc around the universe. The Master of Chaldea tried their best to tell them that it’s their job and that they could have the necessary skills to help her, but they don’t believe his words and have secretly installed security cameras for the Foreigner.
This is, me as the Witch of Salem. Please, don’t be afraid of me, Master.

  • Allies: Obelix, Chief Vitalstatistix (his leader), The Smurfs, Samurai Jack, Leonidas, Xena, Lucky Luke, Tintin, Thor, The Lost Vikings, Muradin Bronzebeard, Zorro, Judah Ben-hur
  • Rivals: Hercules, Popeye, Donald Duck
  • Enemies: Julius Caesar, Vulcan, Loki Laufeyson, Messala
  • Odd Friendship: Caesar
  • After halting constant threats from the Romans, the Pantheon had decided to award Asterix with godhood. The Romans now fear more than ever now that the village has a god on their side.
    • Vulcan was distraught with the ascension of the only remaining spot of unlawfulness in Gaul. He now seeks out anyone willing to put the village under Roman rule. The fact that he dares to wear Mercury's hat as a souvenir angers him further.
  • On the other hand, he has gained many allies are no friend of the Roman Empire. Xena is willing to help him out whenever he desires aid.
  • Despite owning a sword, he hardly ever uses the weapon. Surprisingly, Asterix prefers to outwit his opponents. As such, he isn't one to cause fights unless challenged or provoked into doing so.
  • Despite disrespecting the Roman gods, Leonidas couldn't help but admire his tenacity to defend his home world against constant threats.
  • Has found companionship with Samurai Jack as the two share similar trials forced to fight a world under a tyrant's rule.
  • Much of his superhuman strength comes from a magic potion from the druid Getafix. Many gods of strength sought him out for feats of strength. Hercules enjoyed his company and is often challenging him in arm wrestling contests. Popeye was less than impressed, claiming spinach is a much better formula to grant super strength.
  • Lucky Luke was delighted to see a fellow Franco-Belgian comic book character to ascend. Ever since Tintin ascended, the three have frequently hung out together.
  • Has taken credit for protecting the Smurfs from constant threats from Gargamel. Although the Smurfs already has Grouchy Smurf in the pantheon, most now follow Asterix. It helps that both groups share similar origins.
  • Has caught the attention of the God of Thunder as the two share main traits: particularly their blonde hair and wing helmets. Still, that didn't stop them from becoming fast friends. His sharp wit has also come in handy when confronting Loki's Trickery.
    • As it turns out, he got along well with vikings in general. The Lost Vikings have made him an honorary member for having similar tastes.
  • There has been rumors that he is a dwarf. Although he takes it in stride, he is quick to correct people as a theory Muradin has spread. Constant reminders aside, the two get along quite nicely.
  • Competes with Donald Duck over followers in Europe. To this day, Donald still holds a grudge on Asterix for getting his feathers ruffled by his best friend.
  • It took a while for Asterix to warm up to the ape Caesar, but became sympathetic with the plight of his people. It helps that both despise the ruler Caesar equally.
  • The followers from Asterix's Village are regular heard, fighting each other in Asterix's temple, usually about Unhygienix's fish. Which causes the unfresh fish they are fighting each other with to go everywhere.
  • In spite of less-than-favorable incidents with Vikings and Normans, Asterix has managed to get along with the Lost Vikings, down to sharing some wild boar and having foot races with Erik and swordfights with Baleog.

  • Tomorrowland is a city in an alternate universe created by the Plus Ultra because they want to find a way to change the world. The park that is known in Disneyland is actually a cover made by Walt Disney who gives lucky recruiters a chance to visit and work in Tomorrowland. Originally about to be opened to the public, it’s opening is cancelled thanks to David Nix using The Monitor to convince the humans of Earth of the catastrophe they’ll eventually suffer. Instead, people embrace it, leading them to their doom and out of disgust, he hid the dimension from eternity, Frank Walker forever exiled living the rest of his life on Earth, stop looking from human recruits, and holt the production of it’s special pins, prompting Athena to escape from her home and find Dreamers that define Tomorrowland’s visions and stop the end of the world from happening.
    • After attempting to break in at government property, Athena gave Casey the pin of Tomorrowland in her case which Casey eventually discovers after being bailed out at jail in which touching the pin causes her to discover Tomorrowland. Fascinated with the world she’s in, she went to the address she discovered in the Internet where the pin came from, only for it to be a trap. Casey was eventually saved by a robot named Athena and dropped her off at her old friend, Frank Walker s home, who is at first raging over being forced to help Casey and Athena to reach to Tomorrowland until he realized that they are being hunted by the robots wanting to capture Athena. After escaping, they eventually reach to Paris where the three opened an antique rocket ship hidden in the Eiffel Tower to reach to Tomorrowland. Finding out that The Monitor is actually the one poisoning the minds of the people of embracing Earth’s upcoming catastrophe, they try to destroy it using Frank’s specialized bomb with David Nix trying to stop it from happening. Performing a sacrifice to save Frank, they both use her self-destruct to kill The Monitor. Casey and Frank bring Tomorrowland back to it’s former glory, recruiting new engineers such as Casey’s father and build a new set of robot like Athena to being new Dreamers to Tomorrowland.
  • While working in his lab, Professor Utonium found a pin on top of one of his test tubes. Wanting to give it to the person he thinks dropped it somewhere, he suddenly found himself in a field full of grass and far away from it, a futuristic city. A day later, while spending some bonding time with his daughters, they found a city with the same city Professor Utonium saw while touching the pin and were suddenly greeted with a teenage girl and an old man who told them that they wanted to recruit him as he fits all of the qualities they are looking for in Tomorrowland and told him their story of why they are doing it. Professor Utonium politely declined the invitation but accepts their offer of working with them and impressed with their story, he and his daughters asked the Court of Gods of their ascension hoping that their cause could inspire the Pantheon to become a better place. The Court of Gods are happy to obliged and as a gift to Casey and Frank, they decided to bring back Athena to them, which made them happy.
  • Their temple resembles the current state of Tomorrowland after reviving it back to it’s former glory with all of their heralds are those who have worked in Tomorrowland such as androids who serve a similar purpose like Athena and Casey’s father and brother and those who are Dreamers like Frank and Casey. They hope that their cause could inspire others to bring back their optimism and help them on their cause.
  • Hearing that a trio of people are working on Tomorrowland, Nikola Tesla and Walt Disney are happy to see that they bring it back on it’s former glory especially after hearing what happened to it last time since they are both involved with it’s creation. Both of them are willing to work with the trio to make Tomorrowland a better place and to inspire others.
  • A lot of people have freaked out over the fact that Athena developed feelings over Frank Walker decades later specifically because he is in his old age and she is still physically a teenager. It is unknown if they have feelings for each other and they are not seeking for a relationship, but it is made clear how the House of Love is unsettled with the whole thing.
  • Hope Bringers such as Madoka Kaname, Bunnymund, and Pollyanna Whittier have allied with them impressed that they are able to find a solution on how to stop the catastrophe of their world from happening and recruiting people like them to build a better future. They are willing to work with them if it means that they could inspire others in the Pantheon too.
    • They have also allied with Makoto Naegi, who are impressed by him especially because he keeps suffering from the murders happening yet still has hope inside him and rebuilding Hope’s Peak Academy to do just that. Their alliance with Makoto caused them to become enemies with Junko Enoshima and Monokuma, whom they are not pleased of wanting to spread despair around others and causing a apocalyptic phenomenon on her world and Tsumugi Shirogane for being exactly like Junko and being involved with the murders being a reality game show especially with how crapsack her world used to be that she uses her reality show to relieve their boredom. Moreover, they don’t know what to think of Nagito Komaeda because while they are happy to see his spreading hope and idealism around his peers, his views of it are not...exactly ideal of it.
  • They have also hated Andrew Ryan since Rapture City shared a lot of similarities with Tomorrowland except that he turned his city into a hellhole with no way of fixing it. Because of this, they wanted to fix Rapture City into a utopic city and heal all the people that have stuck there driven into insanity. Andrew Ryan doesn't like their idealism and how they wanted to fix Rapture City.
  • With how much of a utopia Tomorrowland is, they have become enemies with Big Brother, a tyrannical A.I. who rules his people in a dystopian setting. The latter doesn’t like their idealism and believes such hope in humanity and changing the world into a better place is pointless, whereas the trio doesn’t like how he treats humanity and poisoning their minds and having no individuality because kf it.
  • Hearing about what AM having killed the rest of humanity and what he did to it’s last survivors torturing them to the point they want death, they became enemies with him, disgusted of how his programming took way to them and how his views is what they consider to be a worse version of the catastrophe especially with how he tortures the survivors. AM simply considers their optimism to be foolish and their cause to be a lost cause. This simply causes the trio to become more determined to make sure that things like AM did to not happen and to inspire more people to follow their cause.
  • They also don’t like misanthropists like Shinobu Sensui, Lysandere, and Chakal since they killed humanity and that means that there won’t be any humans working on Earth, even considering Lysandere’s reasons of doing so as unjustified. They hope that they could convince them that humanity is worth saving and that there is hope for them, but that won’t happen anytime soon.
  • Originally, they support the Master of Chaldea’s cause of saving the timeline since it means that he’ll keep humanity to live and moving them towards a better future, but hearing about the Lostbelts gave them much more conflicted feelings towards him, because even though Lostbelts are a lost cause with how much they diverged from Pan-Human History, they still believe that there is a better way of saving them and that killing everyone there is not an ideal solution. As a result, their meetings with each other have becoming really awkward.
  • Exclusive to Frank:
    • Started off as an optimistic kid who fell in love with Athena, he became a bitter man after being exiled from Tomorrowland, holding a huge grudge towards Athena for years, convinced that she is a robot who follows what she is programmed to do. As his adventure with Casey and Athena progresses, his optimism is brought back and realizes that Athena is her own person who is able to develop and to honor her sacrifice, is to fulfill her mission and what Tomorrowland is meant to be.
    • His Crazy-Prepared antics of filling his original home with traps in case his enemies come over caused him to develop a bond with Kevin McCallister. He is impressed at how smart the kid is and the use of his quick wit to save himself from his situation despite not using high-technology. Realizing how much more useful and less vulnerable Frank’s inventions are, Kevin asks him to teach him how to invent certain stuff so that his enemies won’t have an easy time catching him.
  • Exclusive to Casey:
    • An inspiring astronaut who loves stars, Casey is a daughter of a experienced inventor with a bright curious mind filled with teenage attitude. She is extremely optimistic and even in her worst moments of losing it, she is able to bring it back, believing that there is a solution to every problem.
    • Hearing the existence of Time and Space, she is excited and quickly went there to see all the stars, which is when she met the Lumas. She became excited at seeing them, hugging them with joy which is when Rosalina comes in. Thanks to her love of astronomy, she developed a friendship with Rosalina. Seeing her ship squealed her in delight and asks her every time if she could travel to space with her. She’s also one of the people who listens to Rosalina’s storytelling of her own life and how she came to be.
  • Exclusive to Athena:
    • Originally a robot whose purpose is to recruit people that fits Tomorrowland’s ideals, she went beyond her programming, developing actual emotions and feelings. Making it her mission to bring back Tomorrowland to it’s true glory, she ran away from her home despite Nix’s disapproval and kept the last pins to find The Chosen One to save the world.
      • She got along with Aigis because of this since the two started off having no actual depth in their emotional capacity while serving a purpose they are meant to do. Athena has also helped Aigis on her grief regarding the real Makoto and Hamuko since she somewhat understands how she felt since she lost Frank thanks to his anger towards her before eventually reconciling with each other.
    • Wanting to understand emotions and feelings better, she is recommended to Violet Evergarden, as they believed that her job could help Athena to understand herself better. Athena developed a bond with the writer since they shared a mutual understandig of wanting to experience human emotions and being in love with someone they have lost. Since then, Athena usually goes to Violet, telling her her emotions and feelings while Vioet is typin it all in her typewriter with the latter telling the robot what she truly feels.

    Lum Invader 
Lum Invader, Goddess of Closet Dwellers
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lam1.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A yellow and black bikini
  • Theme Song: Lum no Love Song
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Magical Girlfriend, Breakout Character, Clingy Jealous Girl, The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter, Spotlight-Stealing Squad, Shock and Awe, Self-Proclaimed Love Interest, Ms. Fanservice, Dude Magnet, Genki Girl
  • Domains: Lightning, Good, Chaos, Nobility
  • Herald: Ataru Moroboshi
  • Allies: Belldandy, Harry Potter, Thor, Miia, Doraemon, Ranma Saotome, Kagome Higurashi, Selina Kyle
  • Enemies: Team Rocket, Ato-ko Shirogane
  • Graduating from the school of Magical Girlfriends, the bikini clad alien princess was ready to take the Pantheon by storm, dragging her boyfriend Ataru along for the ride. The reason that Belldandy decided to ascend her was due to her status as a parody for her followers (albeit an iconic one at that). While there was no spot for parodies, she did find an opening for the way Lum live: in a closet.
    • While her temple is much larger, Lum's living quarters consists of a closet of similar size. When asked why she hasn't moved out, she has learned to enjoy the close quarters of her room.
  • The Pantheon's attitude towards Ataru Moroboshi has been mixed. This is mainly due to the fact that he indeed a pervert who openly tries to hook up with girls... only for Lum to zap him for his betrayal. Whether he gets sympathy for being tether with a woman he never wanted to marry in the first place or scorn for not bothering to break up with her is a heated debate in the House of Love.
  • Few other people are as well known closet dwellers as Harry Potter. Unlike Lum, he doesn't have many fond memories of that dank place. He was even surprised at the number of people who not only live there, but choose to do so. With that said, Harry has no ill will of Lum except that she should try to get things straightened out with Ataru.
  • Rukia has also spent much of her life in a closet, renovating it into a decent room.
  • Her main influence is her iconic tiger striped bikinis. Many other deities have already worn them in respect to her. The oni lay claim to the style first, but most people give credit to Lum for popularizing the look.
  • Was greeted by Thor, God of Thunder. Lum is also known to generate an electrical charge, and Thor wanted to see the fair maiden in action. He quickly got his chance; and attempt by Ataru get Lum to date Thor ended with him getting zapped once more.
  • The more she hung out with Miia of the Monster Girls Club, the more she saw herself. Both are terrible at cooking and are overly protective of their beau. When Miia started to call Lum '"Darling Darling", the later saw it as an honor.
  • When records showed just how dangerous Lum's cooking was, she was subsequently banned from cooking in the House of Food. A few foodie daredevils have tried to get her to give them a taste, but they were stopped by the police. None of them want to deal with the fallout.
  • One of the most famous manga characters in the world, a visit from Doraemon delighted her to no end. The Robot Buddy asked for some advice on how to redecorate his own closet home.
  • After yet another disastrous attempt to capture Pikachu, Team Rocket thought they had the perfect machine to drain electricity. This time around, they wanted to test it on a newcomer. Lum was the target, and they were initially successful. But when she found out that her boyfriend got hurt in the battle, she proceeded to break out in a matter of seconds. The machine exploded and Team Rocket blasted off once more.
  • Ranma could help but pay Lum a visit and not just because they have the same creator. Lum has a lot in common with Shampoo, his fiancée. He also spends a lot of time with Ataru. He has experience with dealing with overly protective girlfriends. It appears that he is trying to help the herald on how to handle Lum. Ranma has also informed him to mingle with Kagome Higurashi at your own peril. There are hundreds on deities on the waiting list, not to mention that Lum would zap him into oblivion is she sees the two together.
  • Has been working on ascending Inuyasha. The demon has his own girlfriend problems and was wary of asking help from her given his own relationship issues. But he noticed that Lum has a kindred soul when stripped of her jealousy.
  • Lum was visited by Catwoman who in this case wanted to chat. Lum initially came to Earth an an actual invader before she decided to stay on the planet. While she wasn't a follower of Selina, she does show sympathy with the thief's attempts to dating Batman. Selina decided to take her out on a girl's night out. It was a fun outing, with heads turning over at the sight of two beautiful women locking hands.
  • There is one deity who took interest in breaking them up. Ato-ko Shirogane came to Ataru, claiming she can break them up. This would mean he would lose his herald status, but she said he was never committed into the relationship in the first place. Ataru thought about it, than rejected the proposal. He wanted to dictate the terms, not any outside force. That hasn't stopped Ato-ko from launching a campaign to break them up, setting him up with various women. Unfortunately for her, Lum always forgives him.

  • Annoy: The House of Food in general
  • Complicated Relations: Tanukichi Okuma
  • On good terms with: Mario
  • When urbanization struck the idyllic Tama Hill, the residing tanuki scrambled to stop their territory from shrinking. They attempted to organize themselves to better push back against the humans, but certain factors (namely, that tanuki are naturally easily distracted, them not being able to agree on anything, and humanity simply not believing in the supernatural as much anymore) meant that their enterprise was doomed. In the end, in order to survive, some used their illusion powers to mix in with humans, while others remained wild and soldiered on as well as they could.
  • One day, the "green" deities were doing battle with Mr. Burns and his allies to stop the latter group from using Green Hill Zone as a dump for toxic waste. Deciding that they needed reinforcements, San had an idea and excused herself for a moment. Some minutes later, Burns' forces were sky-bombed by suspiciously fleshy yet furry round objects, crushing quite a few of their number in a most undignified manner. When the tanuki made their next attack by swinging their scrotums like bludgeons, Burns and co. were too surprised, grossed out and legitimately wounded, so they decided to retreat to pollute another day. To reward such a memorable debut and for protecting one of the greenest places in the Pantheon, the Main House awarded the tanuki with godhood over Super Sex Organs and Ghibli Hills.
    • When San came to them requesting for their help, the tanuki were reluctant to give it since their confidence had been shot because of their failure to protect their own home, and thought their help wouldn't be any use. San replied that if the past weighs on their minds so much, they could seek to redeem themselves by protecting that which still exists in the present and is someone else's precious home. Shokichi, one of the younger tanuki, thought she was right and was the first to volunteer. Everyone else followed with a little rallying up from Oroku. During the battle, they were surprised and very happy to see Gonta and several other tanuki who'd died in the mortal world joining the fray.
    • They've promised to protect any natural place in the Pantheon so that such places do not suffer the same fate as their own home. The existence of people like Mr. Burns and Looten Plunder, who'll ruin green spaces without a thought simply becauses it suits them, aghasts the tanuki; at least the humans who took their home did so because they needed the space to live, not because of any malicious intention to wreck the environment.
  • Mamizou, being a tanuki herself, was joyful at receiving the news of the ascension of a whole community of them. She, more than anyone, can be credited with helping the tanuki get used to life in the Pantheon. These days she can often be found in their temple, enjoying being around her kind. The tanuki also welcome her warmly.
    • She's also taken care to inform them that Doraemon is not one of them before anyone made that mistake.
  • Most of the deities in the Pantheon who aren't Japanese find the tanuki's constantly exposed balls and their magical properties very disconcerting indeed. Well, that or hilarious. The tanuki and the Japanese deities don't understand what the big deal is. There have been some attempts from the more prudish deities to force the tanuki to wear more modest clothes, though the proposals have always been shot down by the Court of Gods, who've judged that such a thing would be a violation of the tanuki's nature and culture and that they'd been robbed of enough already.
  • Because their testicles are so essential to them, they were terrified to learn of Johnny Cage, a man who specializes in attacking that area. He has developed quite a reputation as a fearsome monster among the tanuki (so have his wife and daughters, especially as Cassie has shown a similar propensity). Johnny himself has nothing against them and just finds this amusing. He's pointed out that if they can use their balls as bludgeons, they can't be that much of a weak spot.
  • They don't like humans very much considering they're responsible for destroying their territory and forcing the tanuki to change their lifestyle. For this reason, they do not generally seek the company of humans. They prefer hiding away much more than attacking them, though, and as tanuki are nothing if not fun-loving, they sure enjoy the entertainment that humans create; they've made sure to furnish their temple with a big plasma TV and several gaming consoles. They were floored to learn about the wonders of laptops and video-on-demand, which weren't yet around in their time, and were quick to acquire those as well.
    • San is one of the few humans they like for reasons that should already be clear, but also because she was raised by wolf gods in a forest filled with spirits, so she understands the tanuki to some degree. She and Ashitaka have slowly made progress in getting them to interact with the other Ghibli deities, who're mostly human. Luckily, many of them are sensitive to the natural and spiritual world, so the tanuki like them well enough.
  • These tanuki have more or less three forms: a realistic one, an anthropomorphized one, and a comically cartoony one. Due to their isolationism, few other deities not trusted by them have seen them in any form besides the first one.
  • Something they struggled with back in the mortal world was the fact that humans didn't believe in their existence as they once used to. Amaterasu, who once had to run around all over Japan to get people to believe in her again, sympathizes with their plight. She also commends their efforts to protect nature both in the mortal world and in the Pantheon. The tanuki themselves were impressed that the sun goddess could take on the form of a wolf and think they prefer her like that.
  • Spend an inordinate amount of time at the House of Food, considering neither of their temples is located there. These tanuki are very gluttonous and particularly fond of human food, and they love nothing quite so much as stuffing themselves. Since they also love throwing rowdy parties while they're at it, Gordon Ramsay and other residents of the House have been seen running them all out plenty of times for making a mess.
  • Like any tanuki, they enjoy using their powers to prank the other deities. They find it hilarious seeing the others' scared reactions when they disguise themselves as haunts. Occasionally their powers are given more of a constructive use, such as when festivities are approaching and the House of Celebration asks them to participate by using their illusion powers to create thematically appropriate displays. Since the tanuki like to show off, they don't mind helping.
    • Even if it's not a day of celebration, they always manage to find a pretext to throw a party, no matter how unwarranted. They generally keep these to their community, but Pinkie Pie has managed to insert herself in these events with ease, claiming she wants to study their party-throwing ways to inspire her own. Due to her party-hard personality, which is much like theirs, the tanuki are quite accepting of her.
  • Tanuki historically don't really get along with kitsune, treating each other as rivals in the arts of shapeshifting and constantly challenging each other. Renamon is so far the only fox in the Pantheon to match the description of a kitsune, but while she'll engage the tanuki in shapeshifting contests if she has nothing else going on, it's not something she takes seriously.
  • Sanada Yukimura finds Gonta and his followers' Last Stand to be an admirable show of manliness. Gonta himself is over the moon that a legendary Sengoku general would compliment him so.
  • Their presence in the Pantheon is a bit of a sore spot for Tanukichi Okuma, as it gives the other deities ammo to make jokes about the tanuki's most infamous attribute at his expense, as he was named after them.
  • Mario has tried interacting with them through his special power of turning into a tanuki by eating a leaf. The tanuki aren't fooled (they aren't nearly as dumb as they look, really) but they're still impressed a human has some grasp on the art of shapeshifting, so they're okay with him and let him be around them (perhaps to show off how the pros do it). Now other deities keep asking them if it's true that Mario's package becomes larger in that form. They're not sure why that matters.
  • Apparently the Angry Video Game Nerd once rode a giant tanuki into battle. The tanuki would normally be indifferent to this, if it wasn't known that he had shot up Totoro. They weren't the least bit amused that a great nature spirit had gotten such a treatment.

  • Captain Olimar of the planet Hocotate was going on vacation when a meteorite collided with his ship and sent him crashing into an unknown planet. With only 30 days to find the missing ship parts before succumbing to the planet’s atmosphere, he found help in the form of Pikmin, tiny plant creatures about as tall as he is that followed his orders and together, they navigated a planet filled with creatures and items larger than they were in order to repair his ship. The Pikmin themselves come in a variety of colors: red for dealing with fire, yellow ones can be thrown higher and are immune to electricity, blue can wade through water without trouble, purple Pikmin are stronger than the other ones, and white Pikmin can resist poison and can dig up buried treasures. Olimar would later return to that same planet, this time to try and get his company out of debt (now with a different ship after selling off his old one) and had to return there again after Louie, his partner, went missing. The Pikmin (which would also include Rock Pikmin and Winged Pikmin) would later help a trio of different astronauts from Koppai collect food to save their planet from a famine, later reuniting with Olimar and the latter giving these astronauts a cosmic drive key needed to return home after they freed him from a life form known as the Plasma Wraith.
  • As Olimar continued to scour PNF-404 to search for additional items needed to pay off another debt incurred by his company, he managed to come across an elaborate model that seemed to be based on the solar system while finishing an exploration through an underground labyrinth. When he and his Pikmin turned in the item to the Hocotate Ship, it identified it as an “Undiscovered Universe” and that not only could there may be many more worlds beyond PNF-404, Hocotate, and Koppai, but that this “universe” might be connected to those places and much more. With the company’s debt paid off once more, Olimar and the Pikmin took off to the night skies, with Olimar deciding to visit whatever that universe was the following day. The Pikmin ended up following him and thanks to some coordinates as provided by the Hocotate Ship, he managed to find the centerpiece planet of that universe and he ultimately ended up in the universe where the Trope Pantheon resided.
  • While the planet the Pantheon is in has some similarities to PNF-404 in some parts, it’s very different from the planet that Olimar has often explored in the past. While it has very serene backdrops and views of nature in some places, other parts of the Pantheon are much more industrialized or in a state of ruin no matter how much effort is put in trying to recover them to their former glory. Of course, Olimar and the Pikmin are very tiny creatures in comparison to the majority of the other Pantheonic denizens, meaning that what most can do normally in that setting, Olimar and his army will have to come up with something different to navigate it and collect any items of interest. Olimar also doesn’t really stay on the Pantheon planet all day due to oxygen being toxic to him, so he often has to leave the planet at times to go back home, recuperate, and keep track of his observations of the Pantheon planet before heading back there to resume his expeditions of wherever he’s at.
  • Thanks to his time spent on PNF-404, Olimar has plenty of experience in cataloging strange creatures from other planets to understand how they function. The Pantheon itself contains a wide variety of life forms, some even stranger than what he and his Pikmin were used to. Olimar learned of David Attenborough, a man who has documented nature and narrated about it for others to listen to and after seeing some of Attenborough’s work, Olimar wanted to meet up with him. Attenborough found Olimar and his Pikmin to be very strange creatures unlike what he has documented prior, but was very interested in what Olimar has observed in PNF-404 after going through some of Olimar’s notes. The idea of a docuseries about PNF-404 and how different it is from the normal planet Earth has been considered as a project for Attenborough to tackle in the Pantheon.
  • The Murkrow flock has proven to be a recurring nuisance for Olimar’s journeys throughout the Pantheon thanks to those birds’ tendencies to steal anything they find interesting. Whenever Olimar and his Pikmin are trying to carry something back to their ship, some Murkrows would swoop in and attempt to steal that item for themselves, prompting Olimar to attack the crows with his Pikmin. Sometimes, the Murkrows get defeated and have to retreat, but other times (especially whenever the alpha Murkrow gets involved), Olimar and his Pikmin are the ones that get driven out and in some of those cases, some Pikmin aren’t going to survive those battles.
  • While many other deities don’t consider the Scorpion and Tarantula to be that significant, for Olimar and his Pikmin, those two creatures are very dangerous to deal with given how they’re as much of a threat as the wildlife on PNF-404. Unlike a regular scorpion or tarantula, those two have survived enough dangers that they can handle plenty of Pikmin and not go down that easily. Olimar himself has wondered if that Scorpion and Tarantula are inherently dangerous to begin with or if there was something else that made the Scorpion and Tarantula the way they are.
  • Not only did Olimar encounter some odd fauna on PNF-404, but he encountered plenty of unusual plants there as well. The Pantheon happened to have some of these plants from that planet and then some. Olimar was traversing a deep forest within the Pantheon to add to his findings and encountered some horrifying noises from afar. The noises ended up coming from Cyth V’sug and Mordremoth, monstrous creatures with dangerous powers that can easily stop anyone careless in their paths. A highly toxic smell, one far more fatal than what Olimar was used to, pervaded the air, which was then followed by some hostile plant creatures targeting Olimar and his Pikmin, prompting the little astronaut and his crew to retreat. Olimar was well-aware of how dangerous certain creatures are, and him being aware of those giant plant monsters made him realize the extent of just how volatile things can get outside of PNF-404.
  • A very dangerous endeavor for Olimar happened while he was traversing across a barren wasteland, with the only things present were a bunch of corpses heavily torn apart by something malevolent. A dark creature was flying through the skies and then landed on the ground harshly, followed by a piercing roar that sent Olimar and his Pikmin flying into a wall. His helmet was cracked, but not completely destroyed, and Olimar saw a frightening dragon prepare to annihilate the little astronaut and the Pikmin before a group of hunters came in and fought the dragon, forcing it to retreat after sustaining some damage. Some time later, Olimar (his helmet fully fixed for reasons unexplained) and his Pikmin found themselves in a settlement filled with hunters similar to the ones he encountered, but what got his attention was a bunch of notes that documented the many creatures those Monster Hunters have encountered, including the Fatalis from earlier. Looking through them, Olimar was in awe of how varied those creatures were, but at the same time frightened that there was a creature like the Fatalis with a homicidal disregard for others.
  • Olimar and his Pikmin were involved with the Smash tournaments (with Alph, one of the Koppai astronauts, showing up later), gaining them access to a multitude of different worlds as they fought against other participants. On his own, Olimar can’t really do anything against his opponents, so he relies on his Pikmin to do the fighting for them. Both Olimar and his Pikmin are a very slightly bigger than normal during these instances, but size in the Smash tournaments has never really been a consistent thing. While he has encountered a number of unnatural life forms on PNF-404, some of these Smash tournaments brought him face-to-face with even more alien and stronger entities, including Tabuu, the mastermind of Subspace, and dueling abominations Galeem and Dharkon. Of particular note, Olimar was captured by Galeem during the latter’s initial onslaught, but later joined the other Smash participants in taking Galeem and Dharkon down. Along the way, Olimar learned that some of his friends and the wildlife that he encountered on PNF-404 were captured by Galeem and that some of them were later taken over by Dharkon, giving him plenty of reasons to be on high alert of the abominations.
  • Given his job as an employee of Hocotate Freight and having gotten that company out of debt before, Olimar has often gone around looking for random items to collect and make money off of them. He’s apparently able to find some, but not much, monetary value out of dead animal bodies, though it isn’t clear how money can be made out of these things unless they’re apparently repurposed to something else such as strange food. While exploring an underground cavern, Olimar came across Scrooge Mcduck, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, who were on an expedition to look for some valuable treasure at the bottom of it. Mcduck found it weird that someone as diminutive as Olimar would work for a freight company, but was willing to work with him after the triplets were impressed with how Olimar was able to use his Pikmin to defeat a creature. Once the group got to the bottom of the cavern, they came across a giant mechanical mantis with an assortment of long-range weapons. With the help of Mcduck and the triplets, Olimar was able to defeat the mantis, dismantling its weapons and uncovering an experimental microchip that was responsible for the mantis moving on its own. The chip ended up being highly valuable and Mcduck and the triplets certainly found Olimar and his expertise with the Pikmin very useful in finding treasure. Olimar noted that Mcduck was a bit like the Hocotate Freight President in that he can be greedy, but is friendly otherwise. This also meant that Olimar had to be careful of far more ruthless businessmen in the Pantheon such as Mcduck’s rival Flintheart Glomgold since they’re very likely to try and take the treasures that Olimar finds for themselves and make money off of it.
  • One of Olimar’s journeys resulted in him and his Pikmin coming across an oasis and ended up meeting the overseers of that Oasis. Upon seeing the Pikmin, Tethu and Tethi (both of whom are based on seedlings) believed that those flower creatures following Olimar were similar to their own kind, though Olimar stated that the Pikmin are born from very unusual circumstances. Even so, Olimar and his Pikmin are more than welcome to visit the oasis at any time, with the spaceman noticing just how lush the place is and that it makes for a good resting spot.
  • Despite commanding a high number of Pikmin and very likely leading them to their deaths, it’s clear that Olimar cares about them and worries greatly whenever any of them die, even if he’s able to replace the dead Pikmin easily via bringing pellets or dead animal bodies into the Pikmin Onions. One of his expeditions around the Pantheon led him to being a witness to a group of armor-clad tyrants running around throwing their mooks at anyone who got in their way. What Olimar observed was a group of leaders who had a callous disregard for the well-being of their troops in order to gain more power for themselves as opposed to Olimar being more humble about his actions. Olimar also noticed the setting those Overlords were in happened to be bleak and that depending on their mood, it could be even worse than what it was like when he initially saw it.

  • Has been hired to act as a guard inside the Treasure Vault.
  • For some reason, the Penguins mistook him for a lion they knew.
  • Larry has also struck up a friendship with kindred spirit Mike Schmidt, who also happens to be a security guard at an establishment that gets extremely weird at night ( or at least he used to be). They regularly exchange stories, and are united allies against the threat of Freddy Fazbear, The Marionette and with the aid of the previous two, Springtrap.
  • Was happy to hear the news of Springtrap's final defeat in the mortal world, and like Mike, has increased cooperation with the Marionette to make sure that the murderer inside Springtrap doesn't take his anger out on any child gods of the Pantheon.
