  • While the dragons of Tamriel in general are widely feared, none inspire more terror than their leader Alduin, the World-Eater. Present in the Nordic pantheon as the God of Destruction, Alduin built the dragons’ civilization and is prophesied to reawaken after a long absence with an intent to destroy all life as he had periodically done before once the following events have occurred: when misrule takes its place at the eight corners of the world; when the Brass Tower walks and Time is reshaped; when the thrice-blessed fail and the Red Tower trembles; when the Dragonborn Ruler loses his throne, and the White Tower falls; when the Snow Tower lies sundered, kingless, bleeding.
    • However, it is also said that he will be defeated by a hero known as the Last Dragonborn, a mortal with the soul of a dragon and gifted with the ability to wield the Thu'um with unusually little effort and absorb the souls of other dragons. Yet it is possible that Alduin will be allowed to return once again at the end of time, when the world is finally ready to be consumed. This is supported by the Dovahkiin being unable to absorb Alduin's soul when he finally was slain.
  • Alduin grew in arrogance due to his status as a god among dragons. Eventually, in the primeval Merethic Era, he shirked his fated role and instead cruelly enslaved the mortal races of Tamriel and Atmora, granting power to the dragon priests who ruled as kings. A rebellion soon erupted against the tyranny of the Dragon Cult, and eventually the dragons themselves. Alduin himself was overthrown when a trio of Nordic heroes subdued him with the Dragonrend shout, before casting him forward in time to the year 4E 201 using an Elder Scroll. What few of his kin remained unslain scattered and hid themselves abroad the world of Nirn.
  • The most notable distinction of the dragons of the Mundus universe from other dragons is the fundamental connection of their souls to a magical force known as the Thu'um, which causes words spoken in their language to affect the environment around them, and so a dragon that appears to be breathing fire is in reality saying "fire" in their own tongue. So integral are the Words of Power to these dragons that each of them has a name consisting of three of these words, which can be used by other wielders of the Voice to summon them. It is thus fitting that Alduin, the leader of these dragons, would become god of the Words of Power upon his ascension.
    • While each Word of Power can be learned almost instantaneously by a dragon (or a Dragonborn, provided that they absorb a dragon's soul or "absorb the knowledge" from another), a regular mortal can learn the words and put to use their effects through rigorous training and meditation. This fact allows the Thu'um to be turned against the dragons, as a group of humans invented the Dragonrend shout which forces them to experience mortality, a concept completely alien to them, and land to leave themselves vulnerable.
  • One of the main reasons why the World-Eater is so dreaded is because not only can he kill most other beings with ease, but he can consume their souls afterwards to replenish himself, thus destroying them both physically and metaphysically.
  • There is much debate about the precise connection between Alduin and Akatosh, the Dragon God of Time and chief deity of the widely revered Nine Divines. It is thought by many outsiders of Skyrim, such as scholar and High Priest Alexandre Simon that the former is an aspect of the latter, marking the Great Dragon as both the creator and destroyer of time, and Alduin himself boasts that he is the Firstborn of Akatosh. The Nords themselves, however, generally see the World-Eater as a similar but entirely separate deity, making such arguments as that it is illogical seeing as Akatosh is seen as a benevolent being while Alduin makes himself known through destruction and tyranny.
  • One legend has it that he was responsible for the corruption of a being then known as the Leaper Demon King as punishment for hiding parts of the world from him that he was "entitled" to consume. The Leaper was cast into Oblivion and could only make infrequent returns to Mundus through great effort, but would never be truly free until he found and destroyed what he had shielded from the World-Eater. The denizens of Tamriel recognize this being today as the Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon. If indeed this legend is true, this means that Alduin is indirectly responsible for the Oblivion Crisis which became the catalyst for the collapse of the Tamrielic Empire.
  • As they are both feared enemies of Tamriel, there initially was worry among the gods that Alduin would form a duumvirate with Hermaeus Mora. This did not happen, however, as Alduin hates Mora almost as much as the Dragonborn and Paarthurnax for turning a portion of the Dragon Cult against him, including their leader Miraak.
  • The Adoring Fan is terrified of him, even more so than he is of other hostile creatures. It is speculated that this is because if Alduin were to eat his soul then it would permanently stop the Fan from respawning. For some reason, not many gods seem very upset about this possibility.
  • In his quest to destroy most of the Pantheon and enslave what remains of it, he has allied himself with Darkseid. He is currently wondering if he can unlock a Dragon Language translation of the Anti-Life Equation in order to control the gods.
  • Is surprisingly amiable with Voldemort, since he approves of his contempt for apparently lesser and weaker beings, his garnering of respect through fear and power, and is impressed with how he put a taboo on his own name in order to seek out insolent enemies who try to use it freely, although he still considers spells to be inferior to dragon words. Voldy is also currently safe from having his soul eaten by Alduin, as there is so little of it left inside him that it would do nothing to sate the dragon.
  • Has rivalries with many other Destroyer Deities, Planet Eaters and Omnicidal Maniacs, as he desires as much for himself to destroy as possible.
    • His fiercest antagonism is towards Deathwing- while he has uncharacteristically praised the Destroyer for the magnitude of the destruction that he has wrought, and still fondly remembers the days when they slaughtered terrified villagers and smoked pipe-weed with Smaug, Alduin asserts that if there is going to be a dragon deity who will bring forth the end, then the right belongs to himself and himself alone.
    • Finds himself competing with Oryx since both feed their everlasting hunger through ruin and carnage. The Taken King has an advantage in that, while both of them are very difficult to kill, he can only die permanently in his throne world. He is, however, hindered by the constant threat of being consumed himself should he fail to keep himself satiated.
    • Became miffed when he came across Hades munching on a bowl of souls that could have been his. The Lord of the Underworld remained undeterred.
      Hades: Now, now. I know how tasty these are, but there’s no need to be greedy. There’s plenty to go around, and even more are being formed with each grisly, senseless death. Ha, why don’t we two go for dinner sometime and order the most exotic souls painstakingly prepared by the most esteemed cooks in the Underworld? You would like that, wouldn’t you? Of course, you would! Here, have one now to appetize yourself. *gulp* Whoops! Oh pity, it would appear that I’ve already eaten the las- OOAAAARRRRGHHHH!
      • To make a long story short, the collateral damage took quite a while for the gods to clean up.
  • Naturally, he receives little approval from other magic users who wield the power of words in their spellcasting.
  • Detested by Malygos due to reminding him far too much of Deathwing and due to his presence in the House of Magic.
  • Perceiving his own kin as the supreme race and seeing other life as slaves who are obligated to pay tribute to them (or more specifically, to him), he harbours disgust for any dragon who willingly forms bonds or alliances with lesser beings.
    • Considers Arokh a disgrace for going so far as to bond his soul with his rider. He is looking forward to making a meal out of their shared soul.
    • Was utterly repulsed upon hearing of the relationship between Angelus and her rider. She and Caim do not consider Alduin particularly pleasant either, and note that he does not help with their preternatural prejudice for black dragons.
    • For the same reasons as Caim and Angelus, he has no love for Donkey. The presence of the Dronkeys baffles him almost as much as the concept of mortality.
  • Upon hearing of Alduin's rampages, Daenerys Targaryen rode out on Drogon, accompanied by Rhaegal and Viserion, to confront him in the skies of the Pantheon. While remaining cautious, after enduring a blast of fire from Alduin and remaining unburnt, she became quite confident that by telling him that she was blood of the dragon, she could bring him over to her side as she had done with Smaug. She was wrong.
    Alduin: Kos nahlot, bein jul! You would abase yourself by likening your filthy mortal body to the flesh of a dovah?! You may have braved my fire, but can you truly assert your claim? Kod hi fin Thu'um? You will have the chance to prove yourself... after your insolence has been punished.
    • Alduin then blasted Dany off of Drogon. Immediately, the three Essosi dragons attacked the World-Eater in a frenzied panic. He simply subdued them with Frost Breath and said with a chuckle, "Your false master is dead. Now you will serve me." He then noticed a shadow pass over him, and looked up to find that the sun had been eclipsed by Balerion, carrying King Aegon I. This was the last thing he saw before he was rammed by both Vhagar and Meraxes, ridden by Aegon's sister-wives. After Daenerys was caught in mid-air and deposited back onto Drogon, the four Targaryens and their six steeds proceeded to charge Alduin who, while outmatching the other dragons in his intelligence and range of abilities, could only put up only so much of a fight against so many opponents at once and was eventually forced to flee, albeit with the belief that the six exhausted dragons would make useful servants once he had devoured their masters. The Targaryens then looked around and saw that the surrounding area was in ruins. In awkward silence, they flew away in search of deities who could fix the place up again.
  • Despite being an enemy of most of the ascended Targaryens, he has respect for Maegor the Cruel. Praising the oppression of his subjects and brutal treatment of his enemies, he has gone so far as to say that Maegor is "almost worthy" of being a true dovah and has considered inducting him as a dragon priest. He would never dare, however, to allow Maegor to use him as a mount.
  • While Gwyn and his knights are generally indiscriminate about the dragons they kill, they have taken special notice of Alduin due to him being uncontrollably destructive and knowingly malicious. Even the Nameless King, who opposes Gwyn in his crusade against dragons, agrees with him that he needs to be put down.
  • Is intensely disliked by fellow temporal dragons Nozdormu and Dialga. The possibility that he is an evil aspect of Akatosh reminds them too much of their own evil selves (Murozond and Primal Dialga, respectively).
  • While they do have a commonality connection in being deities who went against their duty for selfish and egotistical reasons, he is annoyed by Melkor's claim that he created dragons (as evidenced by the fact that he was known to breed them in his own world of Arda), claiming that nobody, not even a god, could make such great beings if they were not a dragon themselves.
  • In spite of his insatiable desire for destruction and dominance, he occasionally takes some time off from being the World-Eater, but not before hiring a carefully-selected substitute. Thomas adamantly denied any association with Alduin when he was accused of being a very naughty engine.
  • Also present in the House of Quirks.

Intermediate Gods

    Brightwing 
Brightwing, Goddess of Depowering Transformations (Faerie Dragon, Fey Dragon, Sprite Darter)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brightwing_3.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: A crown she occasionally wears.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good.
  • Portfolio: Cute little Dragon but really dangerous in battle, The Fair Folk, Murderous little Whelp, Healing Abilities in battle, Original Generation, Faerie Dragon, Sociopathic Heroine, The Ditz
  • Domains: Support, Dragons, Magic
  • Friends:
  • Mean Friends: Murky, The defenders of the ancient
  • Meanies: Arthas Menethil, Diablo, Deathwing, Nefarian, Leoric, Abathur, Kerrigan, Acnologia, Grima, Tiamat, Ornstein And Smough
  • Special "Friends": The Killer Rabbit, Liesolette Achenbach
  • Watched carefully by: Most members of the House of Magic
  • This strange creature right here is Brightwing, a Faerie Dragon who wants to make lots and lots of friends. However, behind her saccharine and friendly demeanor hides a psychopathic monster that has no qualms with slaughtering her foes and eat her fallen opponents, but nonetheless she is a good friend. Brightwing ascended one day when she was bored, warping in and out of the Emerald Dream until she took a portal that she assumed was for the nexus but ended up in the pantheon by accident. She started making friends and all was fine until, according to Brightwing, some bad people showed up and were very mean to her friends, so she decided to polymorph them into squirrels and violently eat them. While her friends were left terrified and glad at the same time, Brightwing ended up earning her title after how she displayed her polymorph ability...in a rather brutal way.
  • She frequents the house of Friendship to find friends to play with and quickly befriended Fluttershy thanks to her kindness. Although, Fluttershy is a little terrified of the "Games" Brightwing wants to play. note 
  • This isn't the first time that Brightwing came to Pantheon. One time, she came to visit Lady Ysera and stumbled upon some people prone to Cuteness Overload. Sapphire Rhodonite grabbed the creature and gave it Marshmallow Hell and Rena Ryuguu tried to "take it home" with her. After blinking away, both of them ended up briefly polymorphed into squirrels. Ysera couldn't help but chuckle for hours at such an amusing turn of events.
  • Being a Faerie Dragon (YES, she isn't the only one), Brightwing has caught the attention of many Fairy Deities in the Pantheon, particularly The three Good fairies who are still cracking their heads at the existence of such creatures but nevertheless are on good terms.
    • She did once stumbled upon altaria and Brightwing confused her for another Fairy Dragon like her. They have become friends but altaria doesn't like playing with Brightwing much... since all her games always involve biting
    • For the record, she isn't a real dragon. Just a similar species who behave like fairies and have a great apetite for anything that moves. The only draconic origin she has is that her "mother" is Ysera.
  • Many of the Defenders of the Ancient confused her for another Faerie dragon they know called Puck but her fighting style is totally different that the Dragon they know.
  • Frequently seen visiting The Rabbit of Chaernabog. Apparently, she claims that "Bunny friend" likes to "play rough", which Brightwing finds entertaining.
  • She can warp in and out of the Emerald dream at will whenever she wants. She however, advices against travelling there as it can cause you a headache. (Not even her is immune to the occurances of that place)
  • Became friends with both Anakaris and Mamizou because their powers are similar to hers. Unfortunately, they don't usually are available for brightwing "Games" which greatly upsets her.
    • She also tried to befriend Liesolette Achenbach but she keeps ignoring her and finds the Faerie Dragon super annoying
  • One of her most important abilities is the fact that she is immune to all kind of magic. This particular fact caught the attention of Kiritsugu Emiya and tried to befriend the Fey dragon. Even tough she can be very erratic at times, she can be an important Ally in the fight against mages.
    • On the other hand, Anti-Mage invited her to "play" with some of his "friends" in his world. Brightwing is excited to meet new Friends in another world.
    • With the formation of GUAE Malum Magia, Brightwing has been offered a part in a gropu called "Magus Killers". She doesn't know what all that's about but if he goes to "Play" with the "Evil wizards" then she is fine.
  • Has been seen wearing a Crown on occasions and actually behaves like she would be an actual queen when that happens. If you don't respect her Authority, you will probably be Mauled and Eaten alive by her for your insolence.
  • In her quest to meet more friends, she heard about the friendliest of all the friends from her universe, the Inkeeper from the Hearthstone Tavern. Brightwing went to meet him and as usual, the dwarf and the faerie dragon became fast friends, Brightwing even asking him to let her join the card game but Harth couldn't find a way to include brightwing. That is until Ragnaros and Sylvanas were "retired" from the official ruleset after a rather strange incident and Brightwing was invited to fill in one of their spots. Since then, Brightwing is happy that she can meet even more friends
  • "We are friends now! Hello, friend!"
  • Also making friends in the House of Power. Please don't be mean to her.

    Calypso 
Calypso, Unholy Wish Corrupter (William Sparks, Dr. Ospylac, Billy Calypso)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Calypso_smiling_5130.png
His 2012 incarnation
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His grinning face
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil. How bad he is tends to fluctuate depending on the form.
  • Portfolio: Varying appearances, Those who change reality, Karma Houdini (most of the time), Characterization Marches On, Even Evil Has Loved Ones, Travels on a Cool Airship, Literal Genie
  • Vehicle of Choice (If he has to drive): Nuke-Mobile
  • Domains: Magic, Chaos, Evil, Wishes, Consequences, Vehicular Combat
  • High Priest: Clavicus Vile
  • Allies: Howard and Kreese, Gleeman Vox, The House of Demons
  • Enemies: Needles Kane, Dollface (2012), Rubick, The House of Justice, The House of Angels, Katniss Everdeen, All Killing Game Participants, many deities from Super Mario Bros. and Crash Bandicoot, The Genie, Jeannie, Jorgen Von Strangle
  • Sympathized by: The House of Family
  • Opposed by: The Incubators (Difference of opinion), Dollface (Black) (edging on enemies)
  • Intrigued with: Davy Jones
  • "My name is Calypso. My previous contest destroyed much of my own world. Down below life has come to a halt as survivors struggle to stay alive. With it awash in flames and nothing left to destroy and no continuation in sight I face a dilemma: Where will my next Twisted Metal contests take place? A long line of combat drivers has already been chosen, waiting to battle to the death in hopes of becoming the victor, claiming whatever their brave hearts desire. But where will the contests be held? Oh... the Trope Pantheons will be my battleground. There will be no safe zones, no places to hide, in the next 24 hours the entire Pantheon will know my name! They will see my beautiful work of art first hand! No one will be safe! I promise you that. Welcome, to Twisted Metal."
  • Calypso is the one and only host to a series of Vehicular Combat contests. He's a man of many origins as his incarnations are various, some showing a man with a burned face while others show a balding man with a missing eye or just some snot-nosed bully. The source of his powers vary from stealing it from a demon, using a magic ring, or is pretty much the Devil himself in all but name.
  • Contrasting the many different versions, there's only one background for him that only really accounts for one incarnation of his character. He was a suicidal man as a result of accidentally killing his sister and later took up demolition derby driving in an attempt to kill himself. But at some point, he married and had a single daughter, but it didn't last on account of a stray tire hitting his wife and he ended up accidentally driving into a wall while dozing off, instantly killing both of them. Now trapped in hell, he managed to outrun a demon named Minion, and the man ended up impressing Satan enough to grant him the power to host the Twisted Metal tournament in an effort to harvest many, many souls.
    • There's some piece of information going around that there are multiple Calypsos upon overlooking parts of the origins behind the driver known as Black. Though he eloquently talks about his desire to murder the malicious, apparently this creature was sent by a "colorful" Calypso to kill his darker self in another universe. This seems to have put a bit of a spin on the various personas Calypso takes since that could mean the Pantheon would allow the existence of multiple Calypsos. So far, only one can actually be seen to the relief of many people.
  • Regardless of who he is, Calypso actually has acquainted himself with the House of Demons to further the development of his contests. He's already got Minion under his belt (most of the time), so he might as well go the extra mile. Conversely, he's very much despised by the House of Angels if his apocalyptic games weren't a good enough of a reason to do so already.
  • Calypso was here long before Needles Kane and the Dollfaces were in the Pantheon, and he actually assisted in their ascensions to further his contests by exploiting Needles and Krista's grudges and desire to pay him back for their botched wishes in the reboot, knowing they're willing to total both each other and many other people to try and get to him. The Dollface from Blackfield Asylum was not an expected addition, but he doesn't mind regardless, knowing the events behind her world fuels her distaste for Needles. At the same time, she's also very cautious of Calypso after hearing more about him having not thought of it before while participating in the contests.
    • Even if he doesn't admit it out loud, part of Calypso is pretty concerned with Needles. He has a very long history with the clown which didn't start out antagonistic at first, though things started to shift and change as time went on. There have been periods of time in which Needles not only killed him but others in which he took over as host for Twisted Metal. In one case, Needles managed to accomplish both. Sure, the Monster Clown is primarily known for him being a psychopathic brutish serial killer, but people should really 'ought to watch when he does go beyond that.
  • Rumored to possess some of the most potent magic in the Pantheon, due to his ability to easily warp reality, space and time itself in accordance with the wish granted. The only thing that keeps him from becoming a Greater God is the fact that he can only use his magic in order to grant someone's wish. To make matters worse for him, he can't exactly refuse to grant a wish either, even if it may end up screwing him over. Of course more often than not the wishes tend to not be well thought out in wording or just the wish itself. Such is the case with Dollface (2012), who wished to be on the world's largest runway — she ended up on an airport landing strip and could not runaway in time.
    • Along with the likes of Jafar, Calypso doesn't give genies a good name even if he isn't actually one and is just a wish granter associated with them. Not that the Genie or Jeannie care, anyways. Jorgen sees Calypso as justification for his grudge against genies in general.
    • Some say he's a bit biased towards people with wishes that involve revenge, although he stated that with those kinds of wishes there isn't much for him to twist unless they themselves have a poor choice of words. To support this, he referred to the time where Sweet Tooth wished to see his daughter again to murder her (particularly for stabbing him in the eye), but because she already committed suicide he ended up dying in her coffin, cursing Calypso's name all the while. This admittedly didn't do much to convince people but he said they're free to think whatever they want.
    • The Incubators don't seem to like him much, citing the waste of energy that comes from Calypso's habit of twisting the wishes to end with the wisher's death almost instantly, rather than letting the victim "simmer". Calypso repeated he doesn't have that much control on wishes, whether or not they suffer in the short or long term. One person hungry for souls who wished that the whole world be engulfed in war and death wouldn't suffer as fast as someone who wished for the ability to fly and jumped off the ledge, not realizing Calypso gave them plane tickets instead.
      Calypso: "Let's not dwell that much on the past and move on, shall we?"
  • His Twisted Metal contests are open to many deities provided they have their own vehicle to enter with, which tend to house a plethora of weapons which only got more diverse now that's open to the floodgates of the Trope Pantheon. Just as often he'll also end up roping whatever crazies or unwilling deities of interest to participate in his contests as well. He understands there are those who will try to cheat their way through, but he isn't willing to take the case of another Cousin Eddie lying down. If all else fails, he erected a stop sign that blocks undesirables from continuing further. It reads: "No losers allowed beyond this point."
  • If there’s one real redeeming factor for Calypso it’s his love for his daughter. It’s genuine. The first time she got brought back he chose to hug her despite being rebuilt as a suicide bomber specifically meant to get close and kill him. The second time around she was brought back to fill up the roster for that Twisted Metal game... but at the same time, it was still also done to help bring her back to life through a wish. When she ended up instead wishing that the car accident that killed her family never happened she is put in a deep coma while Calypso is forced to wait for her recovery. While very much educated on his infamy, it did touch some people in the House of Family for how much of a humanizing trait it is for someone like him.
  • Due to having a similar way of doing things, he quickly made a partnership with Gleeman Vox. Hearing of another Deadly Game from Gleeman, along with a pair who commentated over such a thing and being quite fascinated with it (even being former competitors themselves) along with being quite interested in the Jerkass Genie's harem of girls, Calypso hired Howard and Kreese to spectate over some of the matches. The two took a great liking to the carnage of the wishmaker's competitions, and they even brought over some Death Watch Mooks riding motorcycles to participate. Mainly to spice up the matches and see them get maimed in all sorts of ways. They're thinking about commissioning an arena armed with all sorts of ways to increase the carnage like the various death traps in Varrigan City.
    (A Death watcher gets rammed by a large truck causing the bike they're riding on to explode)
    Howard: "Jesus!"
    Kreese: "Look at that fucker fly! He's burning up!"
    Howard: "This Krista chick should be a plastic surgeon. He looks completely different. I can't even tell that schmuck was even the same person!"
    Kreese: "Would ya really call it a gift to just go and slam some random cocksucker with a truck?"
    Howard: "Are you doubting this young woman's dreams to change lives?"
    Kreese: "If yer just gonna leave it at "changing lives", then sure. I mean she just took his away!"
    Howard: "Compensation for her efforts. An artist has got to be paid after all. And hell, it's not like her modelling career is going anywhere with that look. It's not too late for her to find her passion."
    • Their more serious contributions to Twisted Metal have been when they brought along Kojak (Jack Cayman's Evil Doppelgänger) and Martin (a grey piloting a giant Killer Robot). They quickly became popular entries within the games soon after their introductions.
  • If you honestly haven't guessed already, Calypso really isn't popular with the House of Justice for the sheer amount of damage that his Twisted Metal contests can cause and have made efforts to evacuate any area when they can. Not only that but in some incarnations he's seen as one the world's most wanted criminals and public enemy number one has had many officers and agents sent after him, but they ultimately have to participate in the contests to actually get to him. All attempts have been unsuccessful so far, leading some to think about bringing in Carl and Jamie Roberts considering their experience in the games. Even so, Calypso also has his guards and seemed to have upped their stopping power to account for the more dangerous people here. If they do get past security, he's happy to leave behind gifts. And by gifts, we mean bombs, with a note.
    Screw you! Love, Calypso.
    • People who were forced into Deadly Games have nothing good to say about him either. Katniss, along with many of the ascended Danganronpa deities who participated in a Killing Game of some kind, have made it their mission to oppose Calypso while cautious as to not get roped into Twisted Metal behind the wheels or not by their enemies. Calypso, however, is simply unconcerned with them.
    • The House of Justice seemed to have more consistent success when they started reaching out the Badass Drivers who are actually good people, particularly those who participated in their fair share of Wacky Racing. Not only have they managed to not only survive but also win his games in spite of the many roadblocks he tried to set. They haven't quite reached the man himself, though they have indirectly sent him many aneurysms over the whole thing. But it's only a matter of time until Calypso gets his just desserts. After all, he isn't quite as invincible to karma back then either.
  • During a match that took place in a battleground on a boat out in the seas and while out spectating on his blimp, some people have managed to catch a glimpse of Davy Jones' ship. He had heard of someone named Calypso who was out in the House of Water & Moisture, but after coming there himself the captain soon found out it's a case of mistaken identity. Initially, Calypso shrugged it off, though he soon got the idea that he could also rope Davy Jones into participating somehow as well, under the promise of seeing "his" Calypso again... through a wish, of course.
  • On his off times, Calypso finds himself reading books, specifically those written by Steven King as he's quite the fan. His favorite out of all the novels is Needful Things since he can relate a lot to Leland Gaunt. So much so that Calypso promised him a free wish with no strings attached. No one has followed up on this sort of information regarding what wish he did make, if Steven King did so.
  • I am Calypso, and I thank you for reading my profile.

  • Opposes: Majin Buu
  • Opposed by: The House of Narrative
  • Fears: AM, Admiral Akianu, Lord Tirek
  • Erazor Djinn is a malevolent genie based partly off the genie from Aladdin. Sealed for his misdeeds in days past, when he was freed his hatred had grown and made Sonic a slow sacrifice as part of his plans to use the Seven World Rings. When Shahra got in the way, he used this sacrifice instead. It ended up in him becoming an incomplete monster with only able to access some of their power, other rings ending up turning Sonic to Darkspine Sonic, who gave him the mother of all beatdowns.
  • Erazor Djinn was meant to be sealed forever in his lamp, and dead after it was thrown in lava. Upon his resurrection in the pantheon, this was no longer the case since the lamp itself was melted away. However, he is paralyzed with fear when it comes to something involving lava due to how he died. He also fears AM due to how he inflicts And I Must Scream, and Erazor was locked away in the lamp.
  • Relates to Jafar. The sorcerer has grand ambitions like himself, and was trapped in a lamp. They are also pretty malevolent sorcerers and/or genies. Together, the two work to conquer everything related to Agrabah and the Arabian Nights, before eventually turning on one another for power of course. And he's the only Arabian Nights figure that doesn't oppose him on sight, due to how he carved up the Arabian Nights to remake them in his image.
  • The House of Narrative has warned him to be on his best behavior, or better yet never visit. This is because of his ambitions to remake and rewrite stories so he may rule them. As stories are part of their domain, both Dream of the Endless and especially the Pagemaster regard him as a bane. The Protectors of the Plot Continuum regard him as a serious threat as well.
  • To expand his will beyond the world of the Arabian Nights, Erazor Djinn has been studying the House of Metafiction. He is working with Nefarian and White Face for this long game, but has gotten the opposition of heroic metafictional characters in the Crimson Chin. He has offered Bob a chance to get back at the Author, as he completely understands being trapped in a work of fiction, and Bob has agreed. However, he absolutely doesn't trust Erazor and will test his supposed immortality when all is said and done.
  • Was abused in his past, but as it's partly punishment for his misdeeds he's not to be pitied. Perhaps because of this, he found himself getting along with Dr Weil. They were both given a dire punishment, but rather than learn became more misanthropic and developed a hate for the world. As if Erazor wasn't already hated.
  • Often insults Sonic by referring to him as a rat, which Sonic is quick to point out he's a hedgehog. It's a tic he shares with Infinite. The two seek vengeance on Sonic, are absolutely egotistical, and will try to work together, but Erazor regards Infinite as unstable and would rather work from a distance. He has a much more contentious alliance with Dr Eggman in their opposition to Sonic, since King Shahyrar was the Alternate Self to Eggman.
  • As an evil genie, he sides with Calypso and Desiree. More so the former; he attempted to have a more personal relationship with Desiree, however, as he's an implied abusive boyfriend to Shahra she doesn't like that. He has sided with Father to achieve their desire for power, as Father relates to Erazor being sealed away since that was what the Truth inflicted on him post-mortem.
  • As a pink, evil genie Erazor Djinn's design may have been based partly off Majin Buu. Erazor doesn't like either of them, as the Fat Majin Buu is an idiot and the original Majin Buu is an uncontrollable Almighty Idiot who wishes to destroy everything. He'd rather reality be intact or reconstructable to make himself the supreme power.
  • His monstrous form resembles Hoopa Unbound, being a massive genie with six arms. With the use of rings, Erazor Djinn accused Hoopa of being a rip-off, though this is probably just a projection of his ego. Hoopa tried to deflate this by pointing out that its One-Winged Angel isn't some half-baked abomination.
  • Having heard of his plot to rewrite the story he was in, Mordecai and Rigby were advised by the House of Narrative to keep him away from the Realm of Darthon game to which they complied given that they had to go through it along with a killer cheating game master to get their refund. Plus, the game still blows.
  • Erazor Djinn was curious about SCP-682. It survived a story specifically written to destroy it by rewriting the story itself, even increasing the page count from 12 pages to 209. Of course, he'd didn't want to even approach it, let alone associate itself with.

Lesser Gods

    Alice Margatroid 
Alice Margatroid, Goddess of Puppetry (Seven-Colored Puppeteer)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/th105alice_1505.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Theme Music: Doll Judgement ~ The girl who played with people's shapes
  • Symbol: Two dolls ("Shanghai" and "Hourai") guarding her Grimoire.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Magical Puppeteers, Tsunderes (maybe), Holding Back, Badass Bookworm, Danmaku, Magicians, Alice Allusion, Lonely Doll Girl
  • Domains: Puppets, Magic
  • Followers: Kankuro, Dave's Bro/Dirk Strider
  • Marionette: Suigintou.
  • Allies: Marisa Kirisame, Carl & Ada Clover, Haruka, Voodoo, Satori Komeiji, Fiona Mayfield, Haruka Takayama, Rubick, Banette
  • Enemies: Relius Clover
  • Opposes: Donquixote Doflamingo
  • She is good friends with Marisa... apparently after she stole her precious heart.
  • She found Suigintou and nursed her back to her health after the latter was thoroughly discarded and abused by Tomoe Marguerite. Alice has since gained Suigintou's respect and at one point came to blows with Tomoe... with Alice on the winning side, of course.
  • Is hiding Carl Clover in her house per his request since he needs time to plan his counterattack against his evil father Relius. Alice accepts him, if only his mastery over BIGGER puppets (Nirvana) interests her.
    • She eventually used information from interacting with him to develop her "Goliath Doll".
    • Kind of annoyed with how Amane Nishiki pesters her with handing Carl over to him. Not only her "Goliath Doll" is still in development, Alice has kind of grown fond to the boy. There's usually a battle that broke out with Amane's... whatever skills and Alice's Danmakus, but none of them are able to gain upper hand.
    • At one point, Carl decided to leave her house and ended up helping Relius with one his plans. Alice was at first shocked about this, but was relieved to hear that Carl had no plans to actually help Relius and is watching him until he turns Ada back to normal. Carl and Alice still keep in contact with each other, helping each other in need. Alice is also fine if Ada gets turned back to human as she can then harvest any parts leftover from Nirvana and use them on her Goliath Doll.
    • Unfortunately later on, Carl stopped keeping in contact with her for good, and the last Alice heard was that he had a 'talk' with Relius, who was then freed from his containment. With the Goliath Doll project put on indefinite hiatus because of this, that was the last straw for Alice. She would hunt down Relius and make him regret ever messing with her plans.
  • She possesses a staggering amount of dolls in her arsenal, being able to sent them at her opponent in huge numbers. And the fact that she tends to blow them up, one does wonder where does she keep them.
  • She refuses to open her Grimoire up at any cost, even if it makes her even powerful. She has only opened it once as far as anyone knows.
  • Has been hanging around Uncle Howee because of the latter being interested in her puppetry skills and has asked her to teach him how to garner more viewers to his show. However, Alice wishes not to know where Uncle Howee gets his marionettes from.
  • Was little more than an acquaintance at first with Haruka when she first ascended, because where Alice doesn't view Haruka in such a good position, her puppet creations impress Alice and she wishes to learn from her. However, their interaction did eventually lead to the creation of "The Grand Puppeteer Court" with the two of them, Carl and Ada Clover, Suigintou and Uncle Howee, with her being The Leader.
  • Is really interested in the new doll that ascended in the House of Living Objects, Banette and can be seen hanging out with him and Suigintou.
  • Actively opposes Doflamingo for his People Puppet tendencies, Razor Wire abilities, and incredibly manipulative attitude towards people in general. Doffy for his part sees Alice as little more than an understudy unworthy of his time, not perceiving her as much of a threat.

  • Enemies: Killer Rabbit, Tharja, Quan Chi, Zouken Matou, the Incubators
  • Mixed feelings: Sakura Matou
  • Opposes/Opposed by: The fearmongers in the House of Fear.
  • Annoyed by: Michael Bay, the Bob-Ombs, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage
  • Annoys: Rabbit (Winnie-The-Pooh)
  • Ruby is a Jewelpet, a race of beings resembling various anthropomorphised animals that is born with the gift of casting magic. They're called Jewelpets because their eyes are made of minerals, which are the source of their magic. In some myths, the Jewelpets specifically exist to be familiars to humans, but others posit that they lead completely independent existences.
    • Many myths say that Jewelpets cast their magic with the help of Jewel Pods (basically magical smartphones). Ruby has one of these, which she can, in critical circumstances, use to summon the remaining 41 Jewelpets in existence so they can all together cast an Overdeity-level spell.
  • Despite the above, Ruby is actually very bad at magic. Although she's powerful, she has a lot of problems controlling her spells and getting them to do exactly what she wants. Sometimes the results are just hilariously wrong, sometimes they create a literal explosion.
    • Most deities aren't fazed anymore when they hear a kaboom from around the area of the House of Magic. They just keep at what they're doing while remarking "As expected of Ruby."
  • There are many different myths associated with Ruby, with no apparent connection between them except that she always seems to be The Heroine or the partner of a human heroine. Seven myths in particular are well-knownnote . The Ruby in the Pantheon is an original one who simultaneously holds the memories of all the different myths she has been in.
    • One of the more consistent things about her is being the personification of courage. Naturally this puts her at odds with all the deities that represent fear, and on very good terms with those who face their fears. The God of Courage himself, Guy Shishioh, likes her style and has taken her under his wing (although he's clear on one thing: no more spells to artificially increase someone's courage, no matter how well-intentioned she may be).
  • In her universe(s) there is a force known as Dark Magic that is known for being very evil and having a will of its own, to the point where there have been attempts to outright seal it. Dwelling in it is the highest taboo, so she's not comfortable with practitioners of black magic, believing they are making use of Dark Magic. Although Ruby knows from experience that some practitioners might be misguided instead of truly evil, so she doesn't completely discard the possibility that some might repent.
  • Since she is the mascot of her franchise, she gets along well with most other mascots in the Pantheon. She was particularly glad to meet Hello Kitty as they both come from Sanrio.
    • She is also very good friends with Bugs Bunny as they are both rabbits with a taste for mischief, but also default to good during dark times. On the other hand, the Killer Rabbit gives her nightmares.
  • She thinks that Cosmos is another facet of Jewelina, the major goddess of her universe. Or maybe it's Jewelina who was a facet of Cosmos all along. She's not sure, but Cosmos gives off the same motherly feeling as Jewelina, so Ruby really likes her and often tries to get her to pet her.
  • As much as Michael Bay tells her her explosions are totally awesome, Ruby isn't glad about it at all as she'd rather her magic NOT explode, period. Also the Mythbusters keep using her as a prop in their activities; dumb as she is, she never realizes it until it's too late.
    • Oddly, her propensity for explosions seems to lower significantly whenever Marvin the Martian is around. However she has no idea why this is and actually hasn't even connected it to Marvin.
    • The Bob-Ombs once proclaimed her their queen based on the sheer size and force of her explosions, much to her dismay.
  • Willow understands her because she once really sucked at magic too.
  • Due to aiding magical girls in many of her myths, the Magical Girl Sisterhood holds her in high regard (although they always politely decline her assistance lest it literally blow up in their faces). She is particularly close to Sakura Kinomoto, probably because she looks a lot like Akari Sakura, one of her partners.
  • Really hates Incubators for making magical girls suffer and tarnishing the reputation of Mentor Mascots (which she is in some myths).
  • Greatly irritates the very orderly Rabbit with her erratic and slovenly behaviour. The two are practically perfect counterparts.
    • Usagi Miyamoto is much more tolerant of her because despite her lack of finesse it's obvious that she has a just heart eager to help people.
  • In an effort to learn to stabilize her magic, she has requested Rin Tohsaka to teach her her ways. Rin said sure, as long as she shows her Jewel Land someday; she's interested in that place because it's so rich in magic, unlike her world (and maybe she can collect some mana-storing jewels for free). Friendships with other Fate deities followed; Shirou sympathizes with Ruby because he's not so talented at magic either, and Illya thinks she's adorable, besides having an affinity for her as a Magical Girl. Sakura Matou threw her off at first given the nature of her magic and what she has done with it, but Ruby understands that Zouken is really to blame. Doesn't mean Sakura doesn't still give her the willies.
    • Trying to learn stabilizing techniques from others is kind of a hopeless endeavour at any rate, because of her lazy and easily distracted nature. The only way she can consistently perform spells to perfection is through Heroic Resolve brought on by high stakes such as her friends being in danger, or the entire world.
  • After introductions by Guy, Domon Kasshu found the bunny's hot blood very promising and wants to help her learn how to harvest it in order to use it to cast successful spells.
  • Tohru Honda was surprised to hear someone who sounds like Momiji Sohma in the Pantheon. And a rabbit at that! With Ruby having a similar personality to Momiji, she has become quite close to Tohru.
  • Has a lot to talk about with Po on account of both being unlikely and unexpected chosen ones.
  • Fluttershy often invites her to her temple to hang out. Ruby reminds her of her pet bunny Angel, though Ruby is way nicer.
  • Her heart goes out to Nabi and Doki for their terrible situation. She can't help but think of some of her relationships, especially with Mikage, a human, which was considered taboo in one myth. Incidentally she too used to have a crush on a cat called Tour, though that wasn't forbidden since they were both Jewelpets. It makes her think that she's lucky in comparison to Doki.

    Tharja 
Tharja, The Hex Goddess (Sallya, Grim Stalker, Sunshine, Rhajat, Black Magician (?))
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ae6e88fdcccbb7e877e1d6522f75fb4a.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Tomes
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Stripperiffic, Crazy for Robin, Regardless of Gender, Brutal Honesty, Deadpan Snarker, Dark Is Evil, Tharja Has Standards, Hidden Depths, Has a Somewhat Kind Side, Ms. Fanservice Who is Reluctant, Abusive Parent or Parental Neglect
  • Domains: Costume, Magic, Appearance
  • Heralds: Noire (her daughter), Rhajat
  • Allies: Robin, Lucina, Chrom, Juvia Lockser, Tomoko Kuroki, Tomoko Nozama, Kellam, Anna, Rubick, Tailto
  • Rival: Charmcaster , Nine the Phantom
  • Enemies: Grima, Ragyo Kiryuin, Zeref, Sofia Lamb, Medusa Gorgon
  • Uneasy Alliance: Most good-aligned mothers
  • Conflicting Relationship: Yandere Squad
  • Odd Friendship: Rutile, Hinata Hyuga, Orihime Inoue
  • Realizing that the Pantheon lacked a person who specifies in Curses, the Court of the Gods went through the list and chose Tharja for her wide variety of curses. Though, some believe she was ascended because of other reasons.
  • Is absolutely obsessed with Robin, whether they're male or female. She couldn't help but smile madly when she found out that there were two Robins in the pantheon. She's been sleeping very well after hearing this.
    • In one alternate route, Tharja would marry Robin and give birth to both Noire and Morgan. And if she does get him, she said she'd murder him if he leaves her. Oddly, if Robin gets together with another girl, Tharja doesn't mention the classic yandere trait of murdering the love rival. Though, by that time, she might be with someone else. Still, she hasn't said anything when he hangs around Lucina.
    • With the reveal of Rhajat probably being Tharja reborn, it has shown that gender, lives, and even dimensions are a mere annoyance to being with the love of her existence.
  • Is in a very weird position when it comes to other Yanderes, especially for the former Yandere Quartet. On one hand, Tharja doesn't want to associate with YQ because they do have a body count, especially Yuno in her murdering of Yukki's classmates. However, Tharja isn't a rose as she has used her curses on her daughter which means she would be on odds with Yuno because of her own Abusive Parents. Though, Tharja has shown she does cares about her Noire with her future self sacrificing herself to save her. Because of these factors, the two won't interact if only under THE MOST EXTREME CIRCUMSTANCES. Though, it's not the best since Tharja did curse the YQ. Nothing serious, just a case of running noses. The curse broke after the fall of YQ, but she still keeps her distance from Yandere Squad.
    • This same reason is also why any of the good mothers in the pantheon are reluctant to work with her because of how she treated her children. However, Tharja despises the evil matriarchs here. This is especially true with Ragyo Kiryuin in which the former would taunt that the two aren't so different since they both experimented on their daughters. This only makes Tharja hate Ragyo more as there are two major differences between the two; one being that she would never rape her own daughter and two she still loves Noire and would die to protect her, which her future self did. Tharja actually cursed the abusive mother by giving her sores all over her body.
  • While Tharja might seem like a jerk, which she can be, she does have a good heart, a well-hidden heart. Most notably, which nobody knows, was when she help cured half the pantheon who were inflicted by a new disease created by the GUAE by cursing the disease away.
  • Has struck an Odd Friendship with Hinata Hyuga. The two bonded over the fact that the two kind of have the same voice. The two also converse at the fact the two are stalkers. However, Hinata is more sympathetic on that compare to Tharja. Though, Hinata is willing to help her curve her Yandere tendencies.
    • Has also made friends with her total opposite in both power and personality in Orihime Inoue. The two are so close that Tharja actually considered offering her own outfit to wear but reconsidered after seeing her in her new attire.
  • Has also been hanging out with Rutile, the half-demon reminding Tharja a little bit of Nowi.
  • Some of the ascended Strike Witches thought they heard their friend Gertrud Barkhorn. They were disappointed when that wasn't the case.
  • Has been followed around by Tomoko Kuroki. The reason for this is because Tomoko believes she can be more like her; a Yandere who stalks boys around and would make her more popular. She also wants to learn curses to inflict on stuck up high school girls. While Tharja is ok with the socially awkward teen hanging out with her, she's totally against teaching her any curses as it's too much of a burden to teach someone.
    • She has also been seen around with Tomoko Nozama. The reasons are unknown but some believe it's because of their share creepy aura. Incidentally, if both Tomokos and Tharja were together at the same time, some deities would suddenly collapse. Something about 'too much waifu material'
  • Many were shocked when they found out Tharja hates wearing bikinis because it exposes too much skin. Many would point out that her attire pretty much does show skin already. She points out that she is still covered up and that the only way she could wear a bikini is by putting a curse on herself not to feel embarrassed.
  • The existence of a newcomer to Fire Emblem by the name of Rhajat has not escaped her attention. When told that she and Rhajat might in fact literally share the same soul her curiosity has only piqued further. The idea that Rhajat's Avatar might also be another version of her beloved Robin gives her comfort in that she will not only love Robin in one lifetime but in fact in several and that not even gender, time, lives, or dimensions will ever stand between them and that she will always find them.
  • Seems to have a bond with fellow mage Tailto, but the real reason is that Tharja felt that they have a lot in common together, including motherly instincts, though she gets called out for some abuses she did to her child, though she gets pass for ultimately being protective to the extreme. Her creepy stalker attitude creeped Tailto out, though from this friendship, Tharja has wondered if she could go back in time, go meet that Hilda, then put the worst hex ever on her... but then she backed away, saying that hex is too good to be wasted on monsters like her.
  • Has come to form a friendly rivalry with Nine the Phantom. Both are powerful spell casters, mothers, and are incredibly attractive.

  • Allies: After what he did to Discord? Ha Ha Ha No. Aside from Mard Geer, even Melkor stays clear of the guy.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Queen Chrysalis
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: King Sombra
  • Enemies: Twilight Sparkle, the rest of the Mane Six, Discord, the entire House of Magic due to what he could (and most certainly would, if given the opportunity) do to them, anyone who relies on some kind of mana to survive, Zeref, Han Jee-Han, GUAE Malum Magia, Mordremoth, Sauron, Cerberus (his warden)
  • Fears: The Lich, Kiritsugu Emiya, Darth Nihilus
  • Opposed by: Ventari
  • Prior to his incarceration to Tartarus (and his eventual first escape), Tirek was a prince in a faraway kingdom of centaurs and gargoyles. Already power-hungry and talented with magic, he had gained interest in Equestria after Sendak the Elder smuggled in a unicorn to try and drain the magic from.
    • Years later, while it's not known if he took over his homeland or overthrew his parents, he and Scorpan would invade Equestria with plans to Take Over the World afterwards. And he would've gotten away with it too, were it not for Scorpan learning friendship from Starswirl the Bearded and turning against his brother.
    • He would stay in Tartarus for centuries to come until Cerberus left his post one day, after which he snuck out and restarted his reign of terror once more. He would eventually be defeated by the Rainbow Power of the Elements of Harmony and imprisoned again.
    • That was when Melkor decided to send an envoy to offer Tirek a second chance for conquest in a place called the Trope Pantheons. The centaur eagerly took the offer. Melkor would eventually come to regret this decision.
    • As soon as he thought he had more than enough power, Tirek went on a mana-consuming rampage against everybody, and news of his existence eventually reached the other denizens of Equestria. The Mane Six were quick to mobilize and acquire the Elements of Harmony from the Treasury while every other Grand United Alliance (separately) waged war on him, keeping all their mages away. Eventually, the six managed to make their way to Tirek, and used the Rainbow Power to drain Tirek once more and return the stolen magic to their owners.
    • After he was sent to the Court of the Gods for trial, it was decided that the best way to keep him under tight security would be to ascend him for Mana Drain, his most potent power.
  • He is one of the very rare Gods who have been deemed too dangerous to even be given the permission of freely wandering around the Pantheon. He is drained of all magic and sealed inside his own cavernous temple to make sure he will remain that way. Given how powerful he can grow if only he is allowed to devour enough magic, considering that there seems to be virtually no limit to how much he can absorb, and seeing how many magically affiliated Gods exist in the Pantheon (a lot), this is probably for the best. That said, he cannot absorb magic from nonliving things. He's also capable of releasing the magic he's absorbed willingly, as Queen Chrysalis can attest to when they worked together back in the mortal realm.
  • Considering his betrayal of Discord, not even Melkor wants anything to do with him. He is fully aware that if Tirek is allowed free rein in the Pantheon, he will eventually turn on him, and could full well succeed. What he isn't mentioning is that during Tirek's betrayal, he had been pretty close to draining Melkor himself before the Dark Lord managed to escape.
    • That said, ironically, he values trust and loyalty, since Scorpan's betrayal hit him really hard, and he notably only turned on Discord right after his outrage at the fact that the draconequus had withheld information from him (about a fourth Princess, Twilight Sparkle, after draining the other three).
  • Being a very powerful unicorn, aka a very appetizing meal for Tirek, King Sombra stays as far away from his temple as possible. Tirek himself laments the fact that he never got a chance to have a taste of Sombra's dark magic, which he surmises would have tasted delicious and could have been of great help against Princess Twilight Sparkle. For a while, Sombra had been removed from the Pantheon courtesy of Chernabog which forced Tirek to find another source of power, and the Pantheon breathed a sigh of relief; Chernabog would be too strong for him to handle. After Sombra's reinstatement, he's gone back to trying to absorb his magic again, though they're willing to work together due to them sharing a common goal of wanting Twilight Sparkle crushed under hoof.
  • Despite being a cunning schemer, when loaded with magic, Tirek prefers to resolve his problems using sheer power, only resorting to manipulation when that isn't working.
  • Rumor goes that, long ago, he may have wielded a powerful magical force known as the Rainbow of Darkness, with the power to bring a neverending night and to transform victims into dragons subservient to the user. Tirek himself has so far refused to comment on that, but many villains are interested in the possibilities. What they don't know is that Tirek is just waiting for a gullible villain searching for the Rainbow of Darkness to make a deal with him and break him out of his prison. After all, he's a far more menacing villain than that previous incarnation of his.
    • Mard Geer is one of the few to express enough interest in this very same force and Tartarus in order to revive his master, E.N.D, but he's not foolish enough to allow Tirek to be free just yet. In addition, since his powers rely on "Curses", not magic, Tirek can't absorb them at all in his state, to his eternal anger. Still, it's the best hope of freedom he's gotten yet, so he endures. As for the question of Tartarus, Tirek would only reply with...
    "Only a foal dares to walk into Tartarus willingly. But... there might be something of use to you there..."
  • Is scary enough that even the likes of Bernkastel and Lambdadelta are afraid of what he could do to them. If you can frighten a member of Trollkaiger into submission, you know you're a threat.
  • Of of the few beings that actually terrifies him is The Lich. It was one day in the Pantheon when he somehow managed to escape his prison again, and went around doing what he usually does. However, not too long into his rampage, The Lich showed up. Seeing that he possessed magic, Tirek absorbed it, not knowing that he would absorb The Lich as a whole, and ended up getting a Mind Rape. Tirek resorted to begging Twilight and her friends to use their Rainbow Power, knowing it was the only way to remove him. It was sucessful, but Tirek didn't bother trying to get out for weeks after that. Many gods speculate The Lich was the one behind his jailbreak, wanting to steal his ability to absorb magic.
  • Despite one of its heads being afraid of him, Tirek stays far, far away from the House of Ambiguity, for that house is the domain of one of the other beings that manages to terrify him… Kiritsugu Emiya. Tirek does not want to have an encounter with the dreaded "Origin Bullet", a weapon that is the bane to his existence due to its effects being more lethal the more mana its target has. Then again, who in the House of Magic isn't afraid of that to some extent?
  • He is a walking nightmare for every deity hailing from the Underground. The reason for this is that, while most magic users are simply stripped of their magical powers upon being drained by Tirek, the monsters of Mount Ebott are made of magic. To them, being drained of magic is not only a death sentence, but an extraordinarily painful death at that, akin to being slowly eaten alive. The exception is Undyne, who claims that if Tirek just tries, she will pull a Lich on him and take control of him from within using her sheer willpower and determination. While Undyne has accomplished extraordinary things in the past, no one is sure that such a feat of strength is even possible, and no one - except Undyne herself, of course - wants to find out.
  • It is rumoured that Tirek is willing to answer any letters that arrive at his temple, mostly so he has something to do, because he is bored. That was how he met with Cozy Glow.
  • Thanks to having been strong-armed by Grogar, Chrysalis is one of the few besides Mard Geer who can safely visit Tirek without (much) risk of getting drained. They even get along to an extent, though not without occasionally sniping on one another.
  • A while ago, he was freed and started draining magic users once again. He went on a rampage and he eventually managed to become even more powerful than he was during his defeat at the hands of Twilight Sparkle. However, Batman had a plan for this (because of course he did). Batman had a few deities with non-magic teleporting powers teleport Tirek to the House of Language... where he met Darth Nihilus. Tirek, unaware of Nihilus's true nature, tried to drain the Sith Lord to see if his powers worked on Force users... which, of course, backfired spectacularily, in a manner ironically similar to Nihilus's own defeat at the hand of Meetra Surik (except that this time, Nihilus was obviously on the opposite end). Nihilus completely drained Tirek and almost completely devoured him whole, with Tirek barely escaping within an inch of his life. Since then, Tirek has done everything in his power to avoid the House of Language and Darth Nihilus. Next time, he'll be sure to take care of those annoying teleporters first so that they don’t do something like that again. Tirek also opposes Nihilus out of principle. In his eyes, Nihilus is much, MUCH worse than he is and he considers the Sith Lord to be an abomination that needs to be destroyed ASAP, due to what Nihilus is and what he plans to do to the rest of existence.
