Pantheon / Maximum Security

Go To

Encompassing the deepest levels of the Vault, the Maximum Security area holds the most dangerous of fictional artifacts which can have devastating effects on the Pantheon if placed in the wrong hands. Due to the importance and risk if the objects in here are interacted with, access to these Treasures is restricted to everyone, even members of the Main House, the Court of the Gods, and the handlers of the The Great Treasury. Yes, even the Foundation's leadership, the O5 Council has to receive permission to do research on these Treasures. Access to these Treasures is permitted by the three A.Is, General Fletcher, GLaDOS and The Machine, with perhaps the aforementioned decision being made the latter. The levels have also been expanded from one level to two, meaning Levels 4 and 5 are dedicated to Maximum Security.

Entry to this area is extremely restricted that past the warning sign of "Under Construction" from the former Hall, the elevators do not even come down this far, and to reach this vault from the next-highest one would go through a series of vehicular transports, secured teleportation portals and other classified methods. The vault itself is protected by several layers of armored doors and walls, sentry turrets of various kinds placed in even unsuspecting corners, and reinforced by several magic-based and technology-based locks to prevent extensive damage if say, a massive army-wide breach occurs. Even the staff securing this area must submit to at least five security checks before entering. Yes, that is how tightly secured this place is, not even brute force will gurantee a success.

NOTE: A certain few Class 3 entities were originally part of the Hazardous Materials vault. It was originally meant to be labeled Biohazards, but the fact that certain nanomachines can be just as "infectious" meant that would not fit, even if one would loosely interpret "Biohazards" as "hazardous to biological life".

    The Chaos Heart 
The Chaos Heart
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chaos_heart.png
  • Class Level: 0
  • Appearance: A gray and black heart.
  • Theme Songs: Birth of the Chaos Heart, World of Nothing, Destruction of All Worlds, End of the World
  • Alignment: Omnicidal
  • Portfolio: Artifact of Doom, The Power of the Void
  • Domains: Void, Destruction, Ruin, Nothingness, Chaos
  • Sacred to: Dimentio
  • Unholy to: Tippi and Count Bleck, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, all of existence
  • Desired by: The Grand United Alliance of Destruction, The Daleks
  • Watched over by: The Living Tribunal
  • The deadliest artifact in all universes, the Chaos Heart is activated by a forced marriage between a powerful king and a pure princess. Once activated, it unleashes the Void, which proceeds to destroy all universes and leave absolutely nothing. Count Bleck tried to use it to destroy all of existence out of grief due to the fact that he believed he lost Timpani, but became a Death Seeker when he learned that she was still alive as Tippi. Unfortunately, Dimentio took control of the Chaos Heart after Bleck’s defeat and tried to destroy all worlds and remake them in his own image. Fortunately, Dimentio was stopped, but he left a shadow of his power behind to control the Chaos Heart and destroy all of existence as a final act of spite. This forced Tippi and Bleck to perform a Heroic Sacrifice, using the Pure Hearts to banish the Chaos Heart away.
  • Frighteningly enough, the Dark Prognosticus was created before the Light one...meaning that the prophecy of the Chaos Heart was the true one. Mario, Luigi, Peach and Bowser have the eternal respect of the Hall of Opposing Fate because of this.
  • Not even the afterlife is safe from it, as seen with the Underwhere and the Overthere. Unfortunately, the Chaos Heart cannot be destroyed, only banished. Benevolent Death Entities and pretty much any that aren’t Omnicidal Maniacs dislike the Chaos Heart, but they are content to leave it in the treasury to keep it away from people like Dimentio. As for what the worlds become once the Void destroys them? It isn’t pretty.
  • The Living Tribunal, understandably, sees the threat the Chaos Heart poses to be very grave. That being said, he’s been working to ensure nobody of ill intent can get near it. He’s also been trying to keep people from creating forced marriages between fair, lovely princesses and furious monster kings as that will activate the Chaos Heart and unleash the Void as seen with Princess Peach and Bowser. He even admonished Count Bleck for using it but didn’t harm him due to his Heel–Face Turn as well as being part of a Heroic Sacrifice to stop the Chaos Heart from destroying all of existence with his love, Tippi. Dimentio wasn’t so lucky.
  • The Grand United Alliance of Destruction have taken a massive interest in it, though none moreso than Nekron himself, The Lich, Lord English, Death Phantom and Davros. Nekron sees it as an instrument of doom to put an end to existence itself while The Lich desires to use it to destroy everything, including the afterlife. Lord English wants to use it to obliterate all worlds for no reason other than to be a dick, Death Phantom wants it to empower his Malefic Black Crystal to increase its already great power as well as destroy everything and Davros wants to use it in a scheme to make a new Reality Bomb, a goal he shares with the Daleks.
  • Much like Dimentio, Bill Cipher wants to use it to destroy and reshape everything to his liking. Unlike Dimentio, he wants Weirdmageddon which would eventually cause the end of existence. Yapool and Alien Empera are also interested as they see it to be a potential way to bring about darkness everywhere.
  • To the horror of pretty much everyone, Mobius the Anti-Monitor has become interested in using the Chaos Heart. This is something that everyone can agree on should never happen as him getting his hands on the Chaos Heart would likely doom us all.
  • Lucifer has assured his allies that this definitely isn’t the type of Chaos he represents, if its chaotic at all and not just Omnicidal. It is most likely the latter. YHVH was furious of the existence of such a thing. He was even more pissed upon learning that it can’t be destroyed, only banished.
  • Despite safety measures being taken by the Living Tribunal and some others and the Chaos Heart being placed in Maximum Security, the House of Prophecy is rather uneasy due to some late predictions of the Heart being successfully stolen and used, though even they have no idea who would manage that with all of the traps and people aiming to prevent access to it.

     Li'l Cal 
Li'l Cal (The Juju, Caliborn, Gamzee, Arquiusprite, Calsprite)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lil_cal.png
  • Class Level: 0
  • Appearance: A ventriloquist's puppet of decidedly uncanny appearance, dressed in either a blue-and-white "gangsta" outfit, purple pajamas, or a green tuxedo.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil, just like Lord English, as it contains his soul.
  • Portfolio: Demonic Dummies, Making everyone who owns it worse, Creepy Dolls, Perverse Puppets, Nightmare Fuel, Very Bad End, Soul Jars, Stable Time Loops, Only one in existence, Ending every universe it has appeared in.
  • Domains: Corruption, Death, Fear, Madness, Evil Puppets, Souls
  • Similar Artifacts: More than we really want to think about, with The One Ring, The Horcrux, and Zanza's Monado being at the top of the list.
  • It has been said that Li'l Cal exists only to turn the lives of every being occupying the same universe as him into a living nightmare. While this has not been proven, he has played an integral role in enough multiverse-wrecking shit to lend a certain amount of credence to the theory.
  • The truth about Li'l Cal is that it is the Soul Jar of Lord English. It has appeared in the nightmares of Sburb players from universe to universe, being dragged out of dreams and into reality to complete his Time Loops that he uses to destroy universe after universe. Li'l Cal is used to create Doc Scratch. Doc Scratch destroys the universe and summons Lord English. Lord English goes back in time to summon Li'l Cal and wreak havoc across the doomed universe. Then he does this all over again in the next Universe. Therefore, its very existence in a universe is a death sentence to reality.
  • Li'l Hal was summoned in the Pantheon by putting a nightmare in Strong Bad's subconscious, asking him to draw it and then letting his tendency to cause Reality Bleed do the rest. He is still upset about being used like this
  • The souls inside Li'l Hal consist of Caliborn, Gamzee, and Arquiusprite (who is a fusion of Equius, Lil Hal, and a Kernelsprite. However, regardless of who is inside of the doll, it is clearly Caliborn's malice that is in charge.
    • Doc Scratch, who is the first to come out of Li'l Cal, has his personality composed of the nastier aspect of Dird and Equius. Lord English, who comes from Doc Scratch, is composed of Caliborn and Gamzee, with Caliborn being in charge of everything.
  • Li'l Cal is in Maximum Security for several reasons. First, it's mere existence in a universe mean that universe is destined to be destroyed. Plus, Doc Scratch put it in there since it contains his and Lord English's soul. Other people are fine with it being there, since people who hold onto it for extended periods of time tend to become... bad people. Bro Strider became an Abusive Parent and Gamzee became a Monster Clown. Only Dirk was was unaffected and at that point, the puppet was soulless. That being said though, since they already had a version of their soul in the puppet already, it's possible they were more susceptible to its gaze. Most importantly though, the doll just flat-out terrifies everyone.
  • It should be noted that the Doll is a Juju. Juju's are objects that only one of can exist in reality. If another exists, or is created, it is either destined for either be destroyed, is the exact same item in two different places due to time shenanigans, or destined to be sent back in time to become the original. Li'l Cal had/will have (Time travel is complicated) the last two happen to it.
  • Due to the doll's incredible capacity for destruction and mayhem, Bill Cipher and Dimentio want to use it for their goals. Doc Scratch and Bill Cipher get along and Lord English likes to use clowns, so the idea isn't completely off the table, but due to the Doll's use of Stable Time Loops, the fact that Lord English isn't already there where they want him to be makes the odds of it working... unlikely.
  • Erma does not like this thing and is quite glad it is in Maximum Security. Not only does it remind her of Wittle Wallace, a Demonic Dummy, unlike him Lil Cal is destined to show up somewhere else in the future, so the same trick of having him be Dragged Off to Hell won't work permanently. If that wasn't bad enough, the doll is responsible for birthing Doc Scratch, a puppet too powerful for even her to deal with, and Lord English, the ultimate slayer of creatures like her and an utter monster.
  • There are several evil puppet Dieties that are interested in Li'l Cal. Slappy is someone who enjoys company with the doll, due to them both being evil dummies, though since Lil Cal is stuck in Maximum Security, He'll settle with hanging with Doc Scratch, which is the next best thing. Chucky is also interested in the puppet due to also being a soul in a doll. He and Slappy are hoping to use Li'l Cal to figure out how to get the First Guardian powers Doc Scratch has. (Lord English's powers come from something else entirely and are simply not an option.)
    • Speaking of puppets, John Kramer, The Jigsaw Killer, avoids the puppet and Lord English and Doc Scratch like a plague. Not only are they evil to the core, horrifying The Jigsaw Killer, but more disturbingly, Caliborn has made Saw references several times in his life despite never encountering the man, as did Bro Strider when he had the thing.
    • The Muppets are also opposed to this wretched thing. The obvious aside, when Bro had had it, he made a disturbing comic about them. He also made some perverted puppets called Smuppets, but so did Dirk who wasn't effected.
      • Eventually, the more 4th wall aware dieties figured out the source of the Muppets and Jigsaw nonsense. Turns out Andrew Hussie (the real life one) and a member of his Forum basically had a troll role-play involving Saw and Muppets. It holds the basis for some of his jokes and was referenced several times.

    The Pure Hearts 
The Pure Hearts
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pure_hearts.png
Tippi and Count Bleck next to the Purity Heart 
  • Class Level: 0 (Would be lower, but they are the only things capable of countering the Chaos Heart)
  • Appearance: Eight heart-shaped objects in all colors of the rainbow plus white
  • Theme Songs: Soft Light, Pure Heart Get, Open the Next Door, Four Heroes Unite (The latter only when Mario, Luigi, Peach and Bowser are using them to get rid of the invincibility that the Chaos Heart grants its user.)
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: The Power of Love, Made of Love, Love Redeems, Existing as long as there is love
  • Domains: Love, Creations, Good, Saving
  • These eight hearts were created to counteract the Chaos Heart so that no universe would be completely consumed by the Void. Mario, Luigi, Peach and Bowser had to travel throughout multiple worlds to collect them and are the only ones who can use them to cancel out the invincibility granted to the Chaos Heart’s user. It was also used by Tippi and Count Bleck to banish away the Chaos Heart when it came dangerously close to destroying all of existence when Dimentio performed a Suicidal Cosmic Temper Tantrum. To do this, he left behind a shadow of his power to control it even when he perished after his final defeat, but saving all of existence came with a cost.
  • Are a very important key to countering the Chaos Heart. Without them, there would be nothing to stop it from bringing about the destruction of all worlds. Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Bowser are the only ones who can use them to nullify the invincibility the Chaos Heart grants to its user and even then they need to be together to do it. Note 
  • The Pure Hearts are fueled by love and are to be kept away from those who want to get rid of them all at all times so that they can be used in case that the GUAD or someone else of ill will gets their hands on their opposite. The Love That Moves The Stars enjoys them due to their nature as does The One Above All. The Living Tribunal has been taking measures to ensure that the GUAD, other Omnicidal Maniacs and anyone else with evil intent cannot break in and try to remove them from the equation.
  • Much like how the Chaos Heart garnered interest from the GUAD, the Pure Hearts obtained interest in the form of the GUAG. They are well aware of the high stakes the Chaos Heart caused and have obtained the Tribunal’s permission to take them from the Treasury should the GUAD or anyone else successfully take the Chaos Heart from Maximum Security. The GUAD is planning to remove the obstacle in the way of the destruction of all life that are the Pure Hearts.
  • Flonne, Goddess of Love Freaks, was ecstatic that they were powered by Love and that even resulted in them overriding Dimentio’s Xanatos Gambit and saving all of existence. Flonne loves talking about this and is more than willing to lend a hand to Mario, Luigi, Peach and Bowser should someone successfully get their hands on the Chaos Heart and is convinced that Bleck’s Heel–Face Turn is more than enough proof that Love Redeems.
  • A hot topic of the House of Love and Affection, though they wont respond to tainted forms of Love. However, despite this, it is all kinds of love that happen to fuel the Pure Hearts and while they exist as long as there is love, this means if there is tainted love but not true, pure love, the Hearts won’t stop working. Most of the House of Love and Affection respects Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Tippi and Count Bleck for putting an end to Dimentio’s twisted scheme.
  • YHVH dislikes them as they are necessary to counter the Chaos Heart and he refuses to believe he can’t do anything to it on his own, especially since they require emotion to exist, something the Chaos Heart doesn’t need as Nastasia proved. The Shadow Queen is deathly afraid of them as since they are Made of Love, they can cancel out her invulnerability. She wants to find a way to get rid of them, no matter who pays the price.

    The Throne 
The Throne
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/all_shinza_throne.png
The Throne through the eras. note 
  • Appearance: Varies depending on the current holder, but in general takes the shape on some sort of ornate seat. Unknown whether it even has a true form.
  • Class Level: 0
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Reality Warping on a Multiversal Scale, Technology indistinguishable from magic, Artifact from lost times, Only usable by those chosen by it, Only one may be seated on it
  • The Throne is a powerful metaphysical device that exists above all of creation and was created by an ancient advanced civilization allowing an individual absolute domain over all of creation, becoming a god in the process and able to manipulate reality on a conceptual level. It also serves a secondary purpose of acting as a scaffolding for the God currently seated on it, as a god of the Throne is, in essence, a walking universe with things such as a single drop of their blood being more massive than even a neutron star. Their spiritual mass is simply so immense that all of creation would simply implode if not for the Throne supporting their existence.
  • Although its true form is unknown, it generally can be compared to a canvas, where every new "author" paints over the past world with their own image. The first user was a woman from the same civilization that created the Throne that believed herself the be the only true justice in the world and would become known as the 1st Heaven.
  • Since then, the Throne has changed hands several times, with new laws being created by each of its users each time with effects ranging from selfish to altruistic, and would rule for eons before being dethroned by the next one. One god's rule can never be permanent, however, due to a being called the Observer, a being the "should not be", that was accidentally created alongside the Throne. The Observer's arrival heralds the end of the current rule and the beginning of a new one. Additionally, there can never be more than one god and there can never be more than one main law. The lone exception to this was during the rule of the 5th Heaven due to the nature of her law.
  • Another part of the Throne is its archive. This contains the memories and laws of the past gods. And through the archive, the current god is able to invoke those laws, albeit only temporary and only within their own realm. And hidden deep within those archives lies a horrifying truth. The Throne's whole existence and the system it supports was meant to supress a mysterious and extremely dangerous being located in the Origin Coordinate known as Naraka.
  • The means of ascending the Throne though are not as straightforward as might seem. A being needs to achieve Emanation and that is a right that is only bestowed upon an individual from birth. Emanation itself requires someone the reject the current laws of the world on a fundamental level and overwrite with those of one's own design. But on top of that, a great amount of power is also required, usually in the form of a vast amount of souls. Only then will the Emanation occur and will put immense stress on the world until the stress is sufficient to break open a hole in the fabric of reality itself, opening the path to the Throne. Once Emanation has started it cannot be stopped until it is complete, and once complete cannot be undone save for emanating a new law once again.
  • Needless to say, due to the Thrones immense power and capabilities, storing it within the deepest depths of the high-security vault was a no-brainer. In addition to the usual security measures, it also has a trap made of the laws of the Eight Heavens. While these laws are weaker than their true counterparts since they are taken from the Thrones archive, they still have the trait of being universal laws even if it is within a limited space.
    • However, due to the Thrones metaphysical nature, what is actually stored in the vault is not the Throne itself but rather a piece of its archive. This is however considered dangerous enough as is due to the presence of numerous deities in the Pantheon that could possibly ascend to it and create their own law should the knowledge of its existence and the means to do so come to light.
  • Since the Throne overwrites and creates new laws of the entire multiverse, any God of the Throne tend to automatically find themselves in ill favor with The Living Tribunal, regardless of reason or method in using it, as it overrules any of his decisions and imposes the new laws without due process.
  • Despite the efforts to keep the Thrones existence hidden, it was perhaps inevitable that some whispers of it would start circling eventually. Shay Cormac would be one of the early ones that caught wind of it. Believing it to be tech of the First Civilization, he set out to try and pry some information from those in the know in search of it.
    • Similarly, word would reach the ears of both Aerys the Mad and Cersei. With the rumors of its power, they both seek it to give them the power to conquer Westeros and Essos completely unaware of its requirements and the true extent of its power. While the rumors speak of its might, most assume it is just exaggerations, not realizing that they might actually be understatements.
    • While Mercurius simply scoff at the information leak due to it being unlikely someone would be able to claim the Throne, Ren has expressed quite a bit of concern. Not so much over the chance that someone could emanate, but rather over the possibility of conflicts or even wars erupting from factions and individuals trying to lay claim to it on what would most likely be a fruitless endeavor.
  • Due to the way the Throne works as well as similarities in events, some among those who are aware of its existence have started to suspect that Madoka Kaname have either used or even been a God of the Throne. Madoka has however denied this while both Mithra and Mercurius have confirmed that she is found nowhere in its records. This has however shifted the gaze onto the Incubators instead and them having a possible link to the civilization that created the Throne.
    • In much the same vein, a possible link to the Three Reasons has also been put forth.

Class 1

    The Dark Soul 
The Dark Soul of Man
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dark_soul_9.jpg
The Dark Soul on the hands of the Furtive Pygmy
  • Appearance: A tiny light flame, held by the hands of a Pygmy.
  • Class Level: 1
  • Alignment: True Neutral but can go to Chaotic Evil if too much of humanity is gained and/or it burns out.
  • Museum Check: Denied
  • Portfolio: The soul of the Furtive Pygmy, so easily forgotten, seen as a tiny flame, seen as something incomprehensible yet are seen as integral to humans despite being the source of many monsters, the source of Humanity in general, being the piece of the Furtive Pygmy shared to all of Humanity
  • Domains: Souls, Humanity, Flame, Light and Darkness, Death
  • Current "wielder": Slave Knight Gael
  • Sacred to: Most humans who reside from Lordran and beyond, including The Chosen Undead, Bearer of the Curse, Ashen One and Solaire of Astora, Lord Aldia
  • Unholy to:
  • Heavily Opposed by: the God-Emperor of Mankind
  • Source of Interest for: The House of Knowledge
  • In the Age of Ancients the world was unformed, shrouded by fog. A land of gray crags, Archtrees and Everlasting Dragons. But then there was Fire and with fire came disparity. Heat and cold, life and death, and of course, light and dark. Then from the dark, They came, and found the Souls of Lords within the flame. Nito, the First of the Dead, The Witch of Izalith and her Daughters of Chaos, Gwyn, the Lord of Sunlight, and his faithful knights. And the Furtive Pygmy, so easily forgotten
    • With the strength of Lords, they challenged the Dragons. Gwyn's mighty bolts peeled apart their stone scales. The Witches weaved great firestorms. Nito unleashed a miasma of death and disease. And Seath the Scaleless betrayed his own, and the Dragons were no more.
    • Thus began the Age of Fire. But soon the flames will fade and only Dark will remain. Even now there are only embers, and man sees not light, but only endless nights. And amongst the living are seen, carriers of the accursed Darksign.
    • Yes, indeed. The Darksign brands the Undead. And in this land, the Undead are corralled and led to the north, where they are locked away, to await the end of the world... This is your fate.
  • Cycles, Gods and Humanity. In the old age where the world was ancient and had yet to be uncovered, there was only fog and dragons of old, but came fire and with it, an opposite part, disparity. This created an opposite effect on many things, most importantly, light and dark. 4 Lord Souls, each given to mighty deities that would rule the land with great power. Hollows would go out of the dark and into the First Flame, claiming these souls, 3 of which were large and given to three subjects. However, a lowly soul was given to a simple Pygmy, his soul was the Dark Soul and with it, created sprites of darkness called humanity who would become his descendants. Those who bore the markings of the Dark Soul fought against the Everlasting Dragons, but the gods who saw and conscripted these humans knew the dangers of their origin and decided to place in them a seal known as the Darksign. This sign alone would become the mark that every human would suffer with for generations to come, and as for the Dark Soul, it bore with it a monstrous side, one that occurs when having too much humanity is gained: the Abyss.
  • The addition of the Dark Soul was a contentious debacle. On one hand, the addition of it by various archeologists would answer many questions to humanity's (possible) origins from where the Chosen Undead and company resides, but on the other hand, Gwyn's contempt of such lead to arguments to whether or not the Dark Soul had the right of being brought for inspection. After various events and the slow dwindling reputation of the once Lord of Sunlight, the votes to bring the Dark Soul outweighed the denials for it, thus forcing Gwyn no choice but to surrender, resulting to the Dark Soul being added to the Treasury for studies sake. Since then, the king has not spoken back to any question regarding the true nature of it, alongside the other plethora of questions about the past.
  • Out of all the mysteries that surround the nature of Lordran and those beyond, the Dark Soul remains one of, if not, the penultimate enigma for all beings that originate from it. Whether it be those undead such as the Chosen Undead or those who even bore its curse such as the Bearer of the Curse, almost everyone has some sort of link to it, origin or hatred of such. But to make it concise, the Dark Soul was originally the catalyst of the first humans, in other words, it was part of many humans although was should be emphasized. It was a Lord Soul, a soul of great power, that was given to the forgotten being known as the Furtive Pygmy, who created sprites that would ultimately be the first humans. These humans that came out of the darkness would help with Gwyn in the war against the Everlasting Dragons, but whereas the other wielders of the Lord Souls were given great gifts, those who bore the Dark Soul were ultimately screwed by Gwyn, who was terrified of the prospect of the humans' powers. This lead to the creation of the Darksign, a mark that was placed on every human being to remove the Dark Soul from them and link them to the Age of Fire. The Dark Soul that was removed would soon turn into the nightmarish entity known as the Abyss, which would be the source of all the monsters that would terrorize the lands to come.
    • In addition, the first humans, known as pygmies, were imprisoned in the city known as the Ringed City, all built by Gwyn not as a home, but a prison of sorts, giving them idols to distract them from the outside world. The gods would soon reign, but as for every Age of Fire, there is an Age of Dark, and soon the humans marked with the Darksign slowly went hollow, creating the 'Undead Curse'. Even the Gods were not immune to the Dark Soul's removal. Artorias was corrupted by the Abyss, the Nameless King went hollow, even Gwyn himself, who dedicated his life to protecting the First Flame, went hollow as well. Thus, the nature of the universe was all changed because of the removal of one entity.
  • Various scholars and other greater beings have wanted to study the origins of the Dark Soul as they wonder how one such entity was responsible for the utterly depressing setting to come. Many have tried uncovering its origins, but few have actually succeeded, though security for it has been at an all time high. While the nature of it is mostly speculatory, there are a few things that have been at the very least confirmed. It was the origin of many humans, hence it being a birthmark, the removal of it created the effect of hollowing for the unfortunate beings later on, and that gaining too much humanity was enough for one to go mad, that being the case with Manus, Father of the Abyss.
    • Speaking of which, the other curious deities have wondered what happened to the Dark Soul following it being removed by Gwyn and manifesting as the Abyss. Well for starters, the first direction pointed to was Manus, but he represents the Abyss, the uncontrolled form of humanity so he does not directly possess the Dark Soul. On the other hand, one can point to Nashandra and the Children of Dark but that was dismissed as they were born from Manus' fragmented soul, so they do not directly possess the Dark Soul. All was lost until the Ashen One's foray to the Ringed City where they discovered the last sighting and wielder of the Dark Soul in its raw form: eaten by Slave Knight Gael.
  • Everyone in the setting have become affected by the Dark Soul and its removal from humanity, the Chosen Undead and Bearer of the Curse are forced to use Humanities (and Human Effigies for the Bearer) from time to time regain their power through souls, while the Ashen One has his dependent on Embers thanks to Lord Gwyn's Darksign. Other beings like Solaire can also go Hollow while Sister Friede's predicament of being unkindled leads to the guess that world has relied too much on the First Flame obviously linking it with the removal of the Dark Soul and forcing people to live off through the Flame alone. The Gods of the universe are also affected by it (and by speculation alone, it may be that the 'Gods' of the universe were just very empowered hollows), as evidenced by one rumored member of the Dragonslayers from Ornstein becoming corrupted as a result while the Nameless King became hollow when the Ashen One came to Archdragon Peak, even Gwyn himself became hollow upon inspection in the Kiln of the First Flame. The only outlier on this is Lord Aldia, who saw that humanity were the original bearers of the Dark Soul and that Gwyn robbed them their original birthmark.
    • That does not mean that the Dark Soul is inherently bad, quite the contrary, a few such as the herald of Gael, known as the Painter, sees the Dark Soul as a gentle entity despite its nature. Considering she has been using said entity as pigment for her painting, she wishes to make it a new place of comfort for Gael, which is exactly why the latter sacrificed himself to give the Dark Soul a form for her to use. The Ashen One's last meeting with her unfortunately points a terrible picture as while she may create a new home for people to live in, she is unaware of Gael's death and the former has kept it that way.
  • To say that the other greater deities have become delusioned at the Dark Soul's concept is putting it lightly. Many were outright confused and even mad at Gwyn for hiding something towards the other big gods while others, such as the God Emperor of Mankind rejected the idea that humans originated from the Dark Soul, seeing that he guided the first humans in the times of Ancient Anatolia, making the entire origin of the Dark Soul conflicting in his eyes. However, that does mean that people get to see the truth of Gwyn's goodness that being him gutting out the Dark Soul and prolonging an Age of Fire that only made things worse for him and the others as well.
  • The House of Knowledge has been doing a large project to study the Dark Soul and its influences. Many events and concepts of the universe were molded by its existence such as humanities and effigies, the Darksign, Dark Sigil and countless others. However, they have gathered little due to the high security of the Treasury as well as the unfortunate fact that the Dark Soul, or rather the events past the Furtive Pygmy's discovery of it, remains speculatory. For them, they will have to rely on the Chosen Undead and similar beings to understand the nature of it, especially Lord Gwyn, who seems to have seen it in the past thanks to him cursing anyone linked with it.

  • Coveted by: Every single villain and villainous faction in the Pantheon, including SKYNET, HYDRA, Shocker, The Enclave, Sheev Palpatine, Shay Cormac, Regime Superman, Madara Uchiha, Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, Yuuki Terumi, Dracula Vlad Tepes, Gabriel Belmont, Apocalypse, William Stryker, Thanos, General Zod, Darkseid, and Malebolgia
  • Point Of Interest To: Illyana 'Magik' Rasputin, Doctor Strange, Zatanna Zatara, John Constatine, The Dahaka, The Vex
  • Considered to be the two most powerful of relics in the Mortal Kombat universe, The Hourglass allows the Keeper of Time to manipulate time as they see fit. However, to reset time completely, one also needs Kronika's Crown. Without the Crown, any attempt to reset time will result in the destruction of all the realms.
    • Shang Tsung discovered this little detail whilst imprisoned and hatched a scheme that would make him Keeper of Time. However, Liu Kang (as the new Fire God) was familiar of Shang Tsung's lies and hatched a plan of his own; to allow Shang to do all of the footwork and secure the Crown at the cost of his friends' lives before intervening personally to take the Crown for himself. Shang's response as to discovering his most hated rival's scheme?
    Shang Tsung: You let me win. And to ensure victory, you sacrificed the lives of your friends. (chuckles at the irony) How deliciously cold-blooded.
  • The Crown was not created by Kronika, but rather by Shang Tsung, and imbued with countless souls Shang has collected over the years to power it. As Shang himself demonstrated, the Crown increases the powers of its wielder immensely, which allowed him to defeat Nightwolf, Raiden, Fujin, Shao Kahn, Sindel and Kronika in rapid succession.
  • Currently, the Hourglass is in dispute as to who owns it. Kronika claims that as the creator of the Hourglass, both said relic and the Crown belongs to her, while Shang Tsung declares that by defeating Kronika, the Hourglass and Crown are his. However, Liu Kang has the evidence proving that he usurped the both of them by defeating both Kronika, but also Shang in kombat. As a result the Main House rules in Liu's favor. Unfortunately, neither Shang nor Kronika will take this ruling lying down. As it turns out, the Hourglass and Crown has drawn unwanted attention for Liu Kang. Fortunately for Liu, the warring factions seeking the Hourglass and Crown are fighting amongst themselves for the prize, allowing Liu to just sit back and watch the ruckus. Johnny, being Johnny, watches the free-for-all at Liu's temple with a bag of popcorn.
    • The main threat comes from Superman's villainous counterpart. Not only does he want the Hourglass to revive the Regime, but to also bring back his deceased wife.
    • Shay Cormac is probably the easiest of the villains who want the Hourglass and Crown, the Assassin Hunter believing it to be Isu relics. Eventhough the idea has been disproven, Cormac desires the Hourglass and Crown to further the Templar's goals.
    • Out of the villains who covet the Hourglass' power, Dracula Vlad Tepes and Gabriel Belmont are by far, the least selfish. They simply want to use the Hourglass to bring their respective wives back.
    • Twice, has Shocker used time-altering equipment to change events in their favor. Using the Hourglass and Crown for a third time may be problematic, as now it has to contend with HYDRA and The Enclave.
    • Due to being the Terminator being linked to SKYNET's mainframe, the genocidal supercomputer is privy in regards to the knowledge regarding the Hourglass. Too bad that the Terminator that was sent to the MK Universe had tossed itself into the Sea of Blood, meaning that whatever knowledge SKYNET has on the relics in question is limited.
    • Spawn has sent word to Liu Kang that Malebolgia has taken an interest in the Hourglass, with the ultimate goal of using the relic to burn down the Gates of Heaven. Liu thanked Spawn for the warning and is now on his guard against Spawn's former master.
  • However, the good-aligned deities specializing in magic have taken an interest in the Hourglass. Only a select few are allowed to study the Hourglass and Crown, and that list is endorsed by Kitana, Sonya and Jax.
  • The Time Police was very concerned with the emergence of the Hourglass in the Pantheon, believing that Kronika might try and rewind the Pantheon's timeline. Fortunately, they all calmed down upon seeing that Liu Kang was in control of the Hourglass. Despite Liu's promise of letting mortals choose their own destiny, the Time Police continue to monitor the Hourglass closely, albeit from a distance.
  • The power of the Hourglass is far too tempting to pass up. It all depends on who possesses the Hourglass. For example, Cassie Cage refused the power of the Hourglass, settling for the life of a soldier, but did use its power to bring her mother back from the dead. And there's Erron Black, who dumped the Hourglass into the Sea of Blood, where it would sink for all eternity.
  • The Dahaka is keeping a close eye on both the Hourglass and Crown, as well as its new caretaker. The Dahaka was not too keen on Kronika's repeated meddling with the timeline. However, Liu Kang is the exception, as his meddling with the timeline is for the betterment of all parties involved.
  • Though displaying enough power to achieve the desired effect similar to that of Time Masters, the Vex keep watch over the Hourglass and Crown regardless. It appears that they do not want anyone else taking control of such power for themselves as it would only complicate their goals of ensuring their supremacy. It is for that very reason Vex structures has been sighted not too far outside the Treasures with their architects simply watching with their cold red eyes, ready to execute those who desire the two artifacts with extreme prejudice. Whether or not they want the two artifacts for themselves to simplify their endgame is another story, however.
  • The Hourglass has an unfortunate consequence of putting Kitty Pryde on Kronika and Shang's radar. The Black Vortex has the ability to create a cosmic being. Imagine the mayhem if Kronika and/or Shang could unleash by combining the powers of the Black Vortex with the Hourglass...

    Numidium 
Numidium (Anumidium, Brass Tower, The Brass God, Walk-Brass, Big Walker)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mw_book_divine_metaphysics_p3.jpg
Anumidium schematics from Divine Metaphysics
  • Appearance: A reality altering Dwemer Animunculi a thousand feet in size
  • Class Level: 1
  • Alignment: Dependent on who is possessing it. Defaults to the Dwemer's True Neutral.
  • Domains: Dwarves, Golems, Towers, Time, Space
  • Portfolio: The Tower to the Dwemer/Deep Elves, Reality Warping Humongous Mecha, theorized as the weaponized Anthropomorphic Personification of Dwemer Arbitrary Skepticism, Breaking Time and Reality even through mere activation, Lost Superweapon, Mechanical Abomination, Powered by the Heart of Lorkhan and later the Mantella, Unseen in Daggerfall due to hardware limitations
  • Coveted by: Fortress Dwarves, Obstructors of time
  • Under watch by: Uriel Septim VII, The Pantheonic Time Police, The Dahaka
  • The Dwemer were a enigmatic people who did not acknowledge the gods and deities for who they are and instead believed only in their logic and reasoning. Perhaps it was only natural that one day someone from a race who refused to grovel and pray to something as foolish as the gods would try their hand at transcending. Lord Kagrenac, Chief Tonal Architect, was one such mer with a plan and the key to it lied within the Heart of Lorkhan fueling Anumidium, a colossal animunculi which doubled as the Dwemer's own Tower. It wouldn't come to fruition, however, as after the Battle of Red Mountain in the First Era the Dwemer would ultimately cease to be (debated to be a variety of reasons) while a select few Chimer would use the Heart of Lorkhan to become the Tribunal, the living gods.
    • Later on in the Second Era, when Tiber Septim set about conquering all of Tamriel he set his sights on Morrowind. By this point the Tribunal were cut off from the Heart due to the reemergence of an old enemy, Dagoth Ur, and instead negotiated peace through being apart of the Empire while retaining autonomy and offered up Numidium. Tiber Septim then instructed his battlemage Zurin Arctus to repair and reactivate it once more. To control it, he devised the Totem of Tiber Septim and to power it he substituted the heart with the Mantella, a soul gem that housed his life essence (according to one story, however). With Numidium at the ready, Tiber Septim used it to crush the previously unconquerable second Aldmeri Dominion in just an hour. Officially, it was decreed that Tiber Septim soon started to misuse Numidium and a disgusted Zurin Arctus attempted to reclaim his "heart" but the battle resulted in Numidium's destruction, Zurin Arctus' transformation into the Underking, and the Mantella into Aetherius.
    • Come the Third Era and most of Numidium's pieces were found and collected by the Blades save for two special components: The Totem of Tiber Septim and the Mantella though their locations would be deduced in the Iiac Bay region and the plane of Mantellan Crux, respectively. In the ensued power struggle as to who would claim the totem one agent of the Blades would eventually settle on giving it to the Underking. After recovering the Mantella the undead entity activates the great automaton to finally rejoin with his life essence in a fiery blaze, briefly turning mortal and finally ending his suffering. In the process this, paradoxically, also caused a Dragon Break in which other parties got a hold of the Totem and Numidium as well. This period of time would formally be known as the Warp of the West (aka the Miracle of Peace or fittingly the Second Numidium Effect, to some) where the political landscape of the region would be forever changed and a lich would ascend to godhood.
    • Technically speaking, this would not truly be the last of this golem. Akulakhan, the Second Numidium, was well under construction by the Dagoth Ur. Actually powered by the Heart of Lorkhan the living god planned to drive out to not only cast down the Tribunal for good but also drive out all outlanders from Morrowind, spread his Corprus disease, and eventually conquer all of Tamriel through taking over the consciousness of every living being. Despite his victories over the Tribunal he would eventually stopped by the Neravarine, the supposed reincarnation of Lord Indoril Nerevar (Dagoth Ur superior way back when), however. Though Dagoth Ur prepared for their coming, thinking they came with Kagrenac's tools to become a god-like being as well, being blindsided by their decision to cut everyone off from the Heart's power. After being made mortal once more Dagoth Ur's ancient evil would finally meet its end by the hero.
  • Rumor has it that some of the Pantheon's powers attempted to bring forth Numidium in its entirety, Heart of Lorkhan and all, but in the process ended up accidentally activating it and causing a Dragon Break and stomped about — the so-called "blackout" that occurred sometime back in some deity's ascensions. This also had the effect of summoning back the Underking who, not wanting anyone to misuse it for personal gain again, ordered it to be segmented and would threaten a more direct course of action if they dared to ignore his warnings. Only a quarter of the pieces are stored directly within Maximum Security itself. The rest are either stored by the SCP Foundation, Turaga Whenua, and possibly even the Underking himself. While the fact that it is in pieces is known to all the Underking specifically requested that the shared possession of said pieces be kept secret to prevent further interference. Even if all the pieces are properly assembled there's still the issue of getting Numidium to activate with a power source similar to the Heart of Lorkhan or the Mantella and good luck getting that to work with hardly any schematics to go off of, wherever they may be. If anything, stealing Numidium is more akin to a badge of honor one can brag about to the common god.
  • Uriel Septim VII still retains a keen interest in this golem. But since access to Numidium has been denied to everyone, including the Empire, he has resorted to sending out his Blades to skulk around the Treasures to patrol the Treasury. He has met some criticism over this considering the protection and management of Numidium mainly falls under the SCP Foundation and Turaga Whenua though he has skillfully addressed and maneuvered around such accusations through presenting his concern with Numidium's use in wrecking havoc on any of the Alliances' behalf. Still, more often than not, the agents apart of the Blades have butted heads with the Pantheonic Time Police, who are also concerned with Numidium and its time-breaking capabilities especially should it fall into the wrong hands regardless if they could actually get it to work or not. Countless villains and conquerors have already set their sites on the Dwemer automaton already.
    • But the Time Police's concern pales in comparisons to the Dahaka's utter hatred of it. As it easily obstructs the flow of time with Dragon Breaks the Dahaka wants it (or rather it's pieces and schematics) destroyed and erased. Once, when it heard of its existence the Dahaka attempted to eliminate its traces before being shooed out by security. Nowadays, the Guardian of the Timeline has stuck with hunting down anyone who manages to get their filthy mitts on the pieces and/or blueprints. And it will not be pretty if he manages to catch up with them.
  • As a product of the Dwemer it is talked about at length by the various Dwarves within the Pantheon. General consensus is that they agree it was quite the dangerous machine they had planned and not much beyond that. The Fortress Dwarves have taken things a step further, however. Not only did they immediately state that they, as Dwarves, have the right to not only possess Numidium but also managed to somehow smuggle a blueprint for it out of the Treasures. They then immediately used it to create another golem like it and naturally people tried to stop them. Long story short the blueprints were confiscated after an event that rendered part of the House of Mentalism hazardous to the general public and gods tend to try and not talk about that. Not because the information is classified (it's quite hard to cover up a portion of the land being rendered completely uninhabitable to sapient life and death, you know) but because they would rather not recall it. If, at all.
  • According to some looser sources, Numidium's story didn't end with the Warp in the West. It was not destroyed but rather thrust into a time warp in which it reappears in the flesh late within the Fifth Era. Upon arriving, Numidium picks up where it left off with the Aldmeri Dominion. The resulting battle, where it easily reigns victorious, has the Animunculi turn its attention to the rest of Tamriel and instigates an apocalyptic event known as "Landfall" where all of Nirn is rendered uninhabitable while the surviving stragglers eek out a continued existence in the moon Secunda. It's... an interesting tale to say the least, something that should absolutely be taken with a grain of salt. Those who have gone through it usually come to the conclusion that the authorities had the right idea of segmenting Numidium after reading about the Brass God's role of being an antagonist force of nature in the text, one that is nigh-unstoppable in its purpose to see things done.

    Transporter 
The Transporter

The Export Pods

The Nucleus
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/material_tank.JPG
The Material Tank
  • Appearance: A nucleus resembling a tree root, input and output pods, and a materials tank.
  • Class Level: 1
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: A mix between a Time Machine, a 3D printer, and fax machine, 10 month recharge period
  • Domains: Time and Space, Copying
  • The transporter is a device that may or may not be alien in origin. According to Zero II (assuming he is telling the truth), the transporter was discovered in 1888 at the South Pole by a German expedition. Carefully transported back to their homeland and studied in secret, the expedition discovered the transporter can copy matter and "transport" it through time and space. After Germany lost World War II, American soldiers confiscated the device and had it studied in an American Research facility until 2008, where Zero managed to obtain it next year.
  • Just as it is described above, the transporter is like a fax machine and 3D printer, able to copy matter and send it to either the past, future, or an alternate timeline, while keeping the original intact. It can even copy people, though only one person can be copied in each input pod. The copies are reconstructed perfectly in the timeline selected using the elements stored individually in the Material Tank. This is how Delta and Phi came to be in the past, as their parents used the transporter to send copies to the past, allowing some versions of the twins to survive. It also explains how Junpei and Akane came to exist in the Virtue's Last Reward Timeline. However, the transporter takes 10 months to recharge after a single use and cannot be used during that time period due to using a lot of power.
  • One day, the transporter was delivered to the Pantheon under heavy supervision. Nobody knows who send it, but it's likely that person was Delta, since the transporter was used in the Decision Game. Currently, deities are keeping it under heavy supervision to prevent misuse, though some have also expressed the interest in reverse engineering it so they can create their own version of the transporter. Some deities hope that one day, gods from other timelines can use it to so a version of themselves can live in the timeline they want.
  • The Think Tank show a great interest in the Transporter, and are debating on what findings they would send to their past selves. Mobius, on the other hand, is uneasy about the prospect, due to how terrible they were back then even as humans. He's also a fatalist to the point he considers words like "luck" and "coincidence" to be profanity. 0 is more interested in sending his findings to the past just to spite his rival, Mr. House.
  • The Transporter interests the likes of Future Trunks. Future Trunks considers using the Transporter to send a copy of himself to Goku's time so he can stay and fight alongside the version of his family in that time.
  • The Transporter reminds Philip J. Fry of how Lars Fillmore, the latter being a time clone of Philip, came to be. Though the Transporter directly copies the person, while Philip's own actions while in the past led him to become a duplicate of himself.
  • Currently, the House of Time and Space are keeping an eye on the transporter in the Maximum Security vault so as to make sure it is not abused. Evil deities have expressed interest in using the transporter to send a copy of themselves to the past in the hopes of using the knowledge they gained to succeed in their evil plans. Even the deities with the best of intentions could end up causing too much damage if the device is used carelessly, as the SHIFTers demonstrated. This, along with the Transporters 10-month recharge period, has caused the House of Time and Space to set rules for using the Transporter.
    1. The Transporter may only be used in dire circumstances if one needs to transport items needed to save the Timeline of Choice. One such example includes transporting the Infinity Stones into the future if their destruction is foreseen and they are needed to undo the mess they made.
    2. The Transporter may be used to "send" an alternate timeline version of someone to a timeline of their choice, provided they have permission. For example, a family member born in one timeline but doesn't exist in another timeline where everyone else does may use it.
    3. The Transporter may be used to send someone to the future if they are about to be erased from existence (erased, not killed).
    4. The Guardian's votes must be unanimous. If there is anyone who disagrees, no one may use the transporter.

Class 3

    Hexenium 
Hexenium (Exenium)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hexeniumstorage.png
Stored Hexenium
Hexenium-powered nuclear warheads 
Hexenium-powered Flying Bombs 
Hexenium-powered Missile 
  • Appearance: Crystallized magical energy created by the White Witch Sophie, originally used to power various Germanian wonderweapons
  • Class Level: 3
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Used to power all of the Germanian Empire's most advanced wonderweapons designs, Has the potential to destroy entire cities when harnessed and used correctly, The weapons powered by it being used for terror bombing campaigns of Allied cities
  • Domains: Weapons of Mass Destruction, World War II, Science, Witchcraft
  • Creators and Utilizers: Sophie, Lt. Col. Arnold Berkman
  • With the successful revival of the original White Witch through the coordination of Major Berkman's Special Unit and Elisabeth's Design Division, the Germanian Empire began studying her use and application of magical energy. What they found was that the magical energy she crystallized and used for her attacks could be harnessed. Not just as a power source for their various advanced weapons designs, but even as the main component of their warheads.
  • After witnessing Izetta use magic to manipulate British torpedoes mid-air for use against the Germanian Aircraft Carrier Drachenfels, Major Berkman and the Design Division got the idea of creating similar, but more advanced weapons based on this principle. The result? Cruise missiles similar to the real word V-1 Flying Bomb, albeit with swept wings, crystallized magical energy powering and serving as its warhead, and launched and guided by Sophie herself as a form of Homing Projectile against ground targets. These weapons would debut in late 1940 under Sophie's personal control, used to target the Eylstadt capital of Landsbruck as well as several imporant Eylstadt Army garrisons near Cronenburg, to devastating effect. All of Eylstadt's major defenses were crippled, with the capital falling to the Germanian Army in under two hours following Izetta's defeat and the bombing. Their next major use would be against the Britannian capital, where a similar, but more devastating terror bombing campaign was launched, again, with little to no opposition.
  • As it turned out, the Germanians went even further with their study of Hexenium, realizing that it could be used for more than just conventional bombing. Successful experiments and tests resulted in them creating city-busting bombs with the equivalent yield of an early nuclear warhead in our timeline. It was the existence of these warheads, the missile prototype developed to carry them, and the fact that the Germanians would abuse the hell out of magical energy, that ultimately prompted Izetta to take drastic action. Said drastic action would be draining the entirety of Europe, and possibly, the world, of magical energy, at the potential cost of her own life. After a battle over Germanian and later Thermydorian airspace, Izetta achieved the seemingly impossible, causing Sophie to be Brought Down to Normal and die a Disney Villain Death, the Germanian missile prototype aimed at Landsbruck to peter out and fall harmlessly back to Earth, and all of the Germanian Army's reserves of Hexenium to be depleted, rendering all of their new weapons designs and development useless and All for Nothing.
  • Following Berkman's ascension into the Pantheon, and Sophie's subsequent revival and turning into a Super Soldier, the Nazis and HYDRA, using both the documents and intelligence recovered from the ruins of Neu-Berlin as well as Berkman's own research notes, made arrangements into developing their own Hexenium-powered weapons designs. Sophie herself as well as her Soulless Shell clones would end up producing the crystallized magical energy for them en masse. This would be part of a deal arranged between her and Johann Schmidt to arrange for the Duchy of Eylstadt to be ascended into the Pantheon as a Dominion. This is so that she can finally exact her revenge against the country and it's rulers for betraying her. Soon enough, several Nazi and HYDRA scientists, including Dr. Arnim Zola and Wilhelm "Deathshead" Strasse, strike a "Eureka!" Moment when they find out that Hexenium could, indeed, power their newest wonderweapons designs. And so, they promptly begin development of improved wonderweapons similar to the Germanian Empire's designs, but with improved range, payload, with independent launch control and guidance systems that have no need to be under the White Witch's control.
  • Having realized the scope and scale of the threat the White Witch and the wonderweapons designs derived from Hexenium pose, the Allies immediately got to targeting and destroying the Germans' existing stores of the substance, hoping to delay the deployment of additional weapons against other locations in the Pantheon. This was no thanks to their first, failed attempt at a counteroffensive against Sophie, which resulted in all Allied-aligned deities sent against her to be either badly injured or repelled altogether in a series of Curb Stomp Battles. Even worse, many in the Pantheon got to have a taste of just what these weapons designs could do, when several HYDRA-developed Flying Bombs derived from the Germanian design bombed Eindhoven and Omaha Beach in quick succession, and completely independent of Sophie's control, which resulted in massive civilian casualties and dozens of sunk Allied transports.
  • Part of the Stored Hexenium found here in The Great Treasury's Maximum Security Hall was some of the first to be harnessed by HYDRA and Nazi scientists from a Sophie clone, having been captured by Allied operatives in a daring operation just outside War-Torn Berlin. Additional stores found had been successfully recovered in a daring operation on Fort Schmerzen, where several Flying Bombs and Missiles were already being fueled and fitted with the crystallized magical energy. Unfortunately for this team of US Rangers involved in this raid, which included Dog and Charlie Companies of the 2nd Ranger Battalion, they were unable to destroy the facility thanks to the arrival of Sophie and German reinforcements under her personal command, which only resulted in the Americans delaying bomb and missile production by a few months at most. In addition to the Stored Hexenium, the US Rangers had managed to capture the original Germanian blueprints for both the original flying bomb and missile. Using this captured piece on intel, and with the help of certain deities, they were able to create exact working replicas of these weapons for display and study.
  • Thanks to the various Propaganda Pieces starring "HYDRA's new Champion", as Sophie is now being called in different parts of the Pantheon, as well as the recent Axis victories at Eindhoven and Omaha Beach, interest in the Hexenium she helped produce for her Nazi allies increased tremendously, with many feeling that this new discovery should be harnessed for good, several wanting it destroyed knowing that it has been and will be abused further, and others wanting to grab samples of Hexenium for their own nefarious purposes, and hopefully find ways to produce it themselves without the need to buy or steal it from HYDRA.
    • Among those who want to harness it for good include inventors such as Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, Reed Richards, and Hank Pym, who think that the substance can be used to as an alternate source of power for civilian use. To this end, they end up asking Wanda Maximoff if she could replicate the work done by Sophie in harnessing such crystallized magical energy. She reluctantly agrees on the grounds that it should be studied, but gives them the stern warning that what they're tapping into is very, very dangerous, and could potentially bring doom to the Pantheon should it be abused even more than it already is. Steve Rogers, having witnessed firsthand the destructive capabilties of HYDRA's Hexenium-powered flying bombs, voices out his concern against doing so, and tries, unsuccessfully to stop Stark and Co. from experimenting on Hexenium.
    • Captain America himself is of the opinion that Hexenium, much like the Tesseract before it, should not be touched at all, for the reasons stated above. Several of the servicemen serving alongside him, such as Lt. Karl Fairburne, agree, with Fairburne himself having seen the destructive potential similar weapons could unleash. In fact, the aforementioned attacks by the Rangers on various HYDRA facilities containing Hexenium and the weapons powered by it was partially motivated by the fact that anyone with the Hexenium, even the Allies, could very well abuse the substance and risk destroying the world with it. Interestingly, the Allied deities here are joined by a group not of their timeline nor time period: The Tenno. This is no thanks to two of their enemies wishing to harness the substance for their own causes.
    • Interestingly, the final camp, specifically those wanting the Hexenium for their own agendas, is actually the largest group of the three. Of the interested groups in Hexenium, the most unique are those from the Warframe universe, with two different groups out to obtain and potentially create their own stores of the substance. The Grineer, the same group that Lt. Col. Berkman had studied in order to create an improved clone of Sophie, now desire the secret to harnessing Hexenium for their own campaigns of conquest after seeing a propaganda news reel of HYDRA's new weapons in action. The Corpus, on the other hand, see a potential business profit in trying to create their own stores of the substance. Others interested would include General Nikita Dragovich, Vladimir Makarov, Khaled Al-Asad, and Imran Zakhaev, who hope to finally obtain nuclear warheads that could supplement their stores of Nova 6. Lt. Col. Berkman, seeing a potential business opportunity and his curiosity getting the better of him, ends up secretly storing documents and microfilm photographs relating to Hexenium, including the procedure on how to properly crystallize magical energy. Only time will tell if he actually sells these secrets to them...

    Horror's Hand 
The Left-Hand of Horror (Horror's Hand)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/horrors_hand.jpg
  • Appearance:
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral with Evil Tendencies
  • Class Level: 3
  • Portfolio: I Know What You Fear, Artifact of Doom
  • Domains: Fear, Power
  • Users: Mandy in one timeline
  • Similar Artifacts: Shadow of Fear
  • Horror's Hand is a object of unimaginable power, capable of bringing to life the worst nightmares of anyone. Originally starting off as the left hand of Horror the Ancient, Horror planned to rid himself of fear by magically transferring it into a single body part and cutting off, literally cutting away his fear. However, this backfires when the act of channeling so much power in form of 'fear' transformed the dismembered hand into an Underworld Object of Power capable of making people's fears reality. Horror was also left-handed and could not reattach the arm, so he stayed to guard the hand ever since.
  • In one of Grim, Billy, and Mandy's greatest adventures yet, the trio and Irwin raced against the Boogey Man to claim Horror's Hand to the stop him from using it and becoming the scariest being in the world. When they finally reached the hand, Billy, Mandy, and Irwin were faced with their greatest fears made real and unable to claim the hand, while Grim was able to do so easily due to facing his worst fear of being mistreated by Billy and Mandy every day. When Boogey claims the hand for himself however, he's faced with his worst fear of not being scary at all, suffering a Humiliation Conga that permanently traumatizes him and leaves him afraid of everything for the rest of his life (this fear was not manifested by the Hand however; Grim turned it off before Boogey claimed it and counted on nobody taking Boogey seriously). It has since been stored in Grim's Trunk.
  • One day in the Pantheon, Horror's Hand was stolen from Grim's Trunk by the Scarecrow, who wanted it's power to become the scariest thing in the Pantheon. While he was able to claim it due to it being turned off, once he turned it back, he was subjected to it's power immediately because he never actually faced his fear to claim it. Grim, with the help of Batman and the most courageous deities in the House of Dread and Valor, was able to reclaim the hand (again, he was unaffected due to facing his fear everyday). The SCP Foundation took the Hand into their custody once Grim turned it off once again, but decided it would be best kept under Maximum Security after it was stolen so easily from Grim's trunk.
  • After conducting several tests with the Hand, the SCP Foundation (after having someone face their fear place it on) saw that a user can get the better of whoever faced their worst nightmare conjured by the Hand with a little imagination. Grim may face his fear of living under Billy and Mandy's thumb every day, but what if he were to face countless copies of the two? Grim had an even worse time than usual facing countless copies of Mandy once in a nightmare, and was overwhelmed once when countless versions of Billy appeared.
  • Anyone who wishes to claim the Hand (while it is still on) must face their worst fear made real by the hand. That person cannot receive outside help, since they have to fight their own demons. When Mandy tried to save Billy from his fear (an amalgam of a spider, a clown, and the mailman), a barrier blocked her attacks. Illusions conjured by the hand keep outsiders from interfering. It's only when the Hand is claimed by someone that the fears disappear, freeing those people from it's curse.
  • Besides those who faced their fears, the Hand also seems unable to affect anyone who doesn't have any fear at all. Naturally some villains have tried to cheat by getting rid of their fear entirely, all the while vowing to get past the security measures protecting the Hand. This has led the SCP Foundation to double the security.
  • Both the Yellow Lanterns and Pennywise were greatly intrigued with Horror's Hand, who both gain their power from fear. Pennywise in particular wants to use the Hand in case his normal tactics no longer work on his targets. Currently, both parties are trying to manipulate potential pawns to help them breach security in order to acquire the Hand for their own purposes.
  • Touma Kamijou seems to be so far the only one who can touch Horror's Hand without facing his fear, since his right hand can negate the supernatural power it holds. Since he is a trustworthy man, he is one of the few who is allowed to touch the Hand. Some of the villainous deities have considered letting Kamijou take the hand for them, but they realize it won't work that way because Kamijou's power negates the hand so long as he has his right hand on it, and even if they did take the hand from him, they would still have to face their worst nightmares.
  • Sauron has shown interest in Horror's Hand, intent on combining it's power with the One Ring increase his influence and spread fear more effieciently. Since the One Ring has been shown to enhance the natural abilities of it's holders, people have feared what would happen if the ring enhanced the fear-spreading powers of Horror's Hand, possibly by increasing the range, power, and the strength of its conjurations. Measures have been taken to keep the objects apart from each other, even if one of them is stolen.

Original batch of Nova 6 produced by the Nazis at the end of World War II
Nova 6 bomb 
Weaponized Nova 6 
Coalescence-developed Nova 6 
  • Appearance: A canister containing a logo with a Swastika on top, and "N6" on the bottom (Original Nazi version); Either a barrel containing the gas with C4 strapped onto it (Weaponized Nova 6) or a briefcase containing the Nova 6 components and explosives (Nova 6 bomb).
  • Class Level: 3
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: A very deadly nerve agent that can kill any person or animal exposed to it in less than 20 seconds, Anyone without a gas mask and hazmat suit can and will die even under minimal exposure, Originally a Nazi wonder-weapons project that the Soviets salvaged and continued work on
  • Domains: Weapons of Mass Destruction, Soviets, Nazis, CIA
  • Deities Interested: Nikita Dragovich, Viktor Reznov, Alex Mason, Soldier #25954
  • Developed towards the end of World War II, Nova 6, part of Project Nova, was a Nazi wonder-weapon intended to be used against the civilian populations of both the Western Allies and the Soviets. It was developed by Dr. Friedrich Steiner, who later took all his research with him upon his defection to the USSR under General Nikita Dragovich's command.
  • During the Cold War, Dr. Steiner had created a new, more lethal batch of the chemical, with help from Dr. Daniel Clarke, a British scientist and a diehard communist. This strain allowed for use in tropical environments, and was capable of killing any person exposed to it before they even hit the ground. This particular strain was tested in Vietnam and Laos by Colonel Kravchenko through a False Flag Operation where the Americans were made The Scapegoat. In addition, it was also used in combat for the first and only time during a battle between CIA operatives and Soviet Spetsnaz troops at Rebirth Island.
    • As it turned out, Dragovich had intended to unleash Weaponized Nova 6 and Nova 6 bombs all throughout major cities in the United States as part of the new Project Nova, in order to clear way for an intended Soviet invasion force. Unlike nuclear weapons of the time, which left massive fallout and environmental damage, Nova 6 would have left no trace minutes after deployment, thus having allowed for an occupation force to settle in unopposed.
  • In the 2060s, around a century after the botched use of Nova 6, the CIA, through the private contractor Coalescence Corporation, had created a new batch of Nova 6 based on Steiner's and Clarke's recipe, which unfortunately was unleashed on innocent Singaporean civilians by the rogue AI Corvus. The resulting Coalescence Disaster would be the last known use of the chemical weapon in this timeline. It had similar effects to the Soviet version, but was now colored light green.
  • In one alternate timeline, Nova 6 was mixed with Element 115 in order to create a Mind Control serum. Instead, however, it unleashed the deity known as Deimos, who subsequently used Virus 61-15 to infect huge swathes of the Earth's population into his own undead army.
  • In another alternate time, Nova 6 became a component in the creation of the Nova 6 Crawler, a failed experiment that unleashed the gas when killed. Unlike the Nova 6 of the main universe, this one was less lethal, mainly causing only temporary concussions and blindness to anyone exposed.
  • Upon its placement into the Pantheon, it is immediately decided to seal off all existing canisters of the substance into the Maximum Security area. This is no thanks to its lethality being on par with that of a nuclear weapon or even manmade pathogens already in the Pantheon. Not to mention that any evil-aligned deity (such as Ali-al Saachez or even The Joker) who gets their hands on even a single canister can and will use the chemical weapon to suit their own agendas, not to mention the very high possibility of them producing their own new batches of the weapon.
    • While known to be lethal against normal humans and various types of animals, it is unknown if the gas can also kill those of divine origin. Undoubtedly, however, a huge chunk of the Pantheon would perish if exposed.
    • Should it be unleashed on the Pantheon in high enough amounts, it would be able to cause around a Class 0 to a Class 2 Apocalypse How, depending on how much of the gas is used, and how the gas itself is deployed.
  • General Dragovich, upon finding out about the existing Nova 6 shipment in the Pantheon, immediately decided to get his hands back on it, and thus began briefing his close associates about Project Nova. He then enlisted the help of fellow Russians Col. Volgin and Vladimir Makarov into helping him reclaim his lost superweapon. Makarov was especially interested, especially when he was told that Nova 6 was far more lethal than the chemical weapons he had unleashed throughout Europe.
  • Unsurprisingly, Mason, Reznov, and Soldier #25954, upon finding out about it themselves, fully expect Dragovich to try and steal the gas for his own twisted means, and promptly plan an operation so that he and his allies cannot get their hands on it. This includes, among other things, destroying the gas for good if possible, so as to avoid the tragedies that had taken place in their universe from repeating.
    • Because it was a weapon of Nazi origin, this immediately alerted the likes of Lt. Karl Fairburne, who saw to it that it must be destroyed. Unlike Mason or Reznov, however, he is willing to collect the dossiers containing how the chemical weapon is manufactured in order to deliver it to President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
    • President JFK, by contrast, knowing of Dragovich and his twisted Evil Plan, wants it destroyed completely, with all documents relating to it to be burnt. This causes a dispute between the two US Presidents, who both eventually settle on destroying any traces of the weapon while recovering any documents related to it in order to come up with an effective countermeasure.
  • When the various Nazi deities found out about its existence, they began a plot to take some for themselves in order to mass produce it and use against their own enemies. Without the nasty side effect of nuclear fallout, this suited Wilhelm "Deathshead" Strasse's and Johann Schmidt's intended Evil Plan: turn the Pantheon into a Nazi haven.

    The Plague Inc. Kit 
The Plague Inc. Kit
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/plagueinc.png
Packaging/logo for the kit
  • Plagues Included: Bacterias, Viruses, Fungi, Parasites, Prion, Nano-Viruses, The Black Death, Smallpox, Swine Flu, Nipah Virus, Frozen Virus, Neurax Worms, Necroa Viruses, Shadow Plague
  • Class Level: 3
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Can Unleash Many Different Deadly Diseases Around the World, Can Kill Anyone and Possibly Everyone
  • Domains: Plagues, Eradication
  • Compatible With: Simian Flu
  • Deities Interested: Albert Wesker, Nurgle, Typhus, Thrax, The Enclave
  • Cause of Concern for: Osmosis Jones
  • The world is functioning normally until someone dubbed "Patient Zero" gets infected by some sort of plague. That particular plague can come in many forms, be it something as ordinary as bacteria or virus, or something much more fantastical, including Neurax Worms and Necroa Viruses. Whatever the specific name and form of that plague, "Patient Zero" will pass it on to someone else and the plague will continue to spread, changing its abilities along the way. It will get to a point where the entire world will fight back against that plague and try to get a cure made before that plague can bring about total planetary extinction or some other dire event that will irrevocably bring about society's collapse. As for who created this plague, it could be anyone, especially if they're smart enough to have the plague's attributes changed on a whim to combat the world's efforts for a cure.
    • Neurax Worms, Necroa Viruses, and the Shadow Plague are the three unusual viruses featured in the kit. The Neurax Worm can be implanted inside someone's brain to impose mind control onto its victims, the Necroa Virus can cause a zombie apocalypse under the right conditions, and the Shadow Plague is a disease that can turn its victims into vampires.
  • It didn't take long for word of the kit to reach the various doctors and medics throughout the Pantheon. Not only have they spent plenty of time studying the individual viruses, they have also studied the kit's capabilities overall to get a better idea of what it's capable of and how to bypass its adaptive abilities of it in order to create more effective cures for the viruses it causes. On the other hand, this meant that deities wanting to spread plagues such as Nurgle have also taken note of the kit and have studied it extensively to see how useful it is in their schemes.
  • Besides the aforementioned regular and fantastical viruses included in this kit, Simian Flu is also compatible with this kit. With the correct set-up, that virus could give rise to a society full of intelligent apes whilst human society crumbles. Most of the deified primates don't want anything to do with this, though Koba is more than curious about a modified Simian Flu that can cause humanity's collapse and is willing to steal it to try and spread it. Some of the other viruses have also got Koba's attention, though the Simian Flu strain is something that's mainly on his mind when it comes to the kit.
  • Osmosis Jones was frightened after learning about this kit and what it's capable of. It's one thing to fight threats such as Thrax, but the fact that the kit is capable of viruses that can change its capabilities on a whim has concerned Ozzy and many other healers since it meant that even if a cure is developed to combat the viruses from that kit, then it can adapt to render that cure useless. Ozzy is also worried about fighting what can be borne from that kit, imagining the threat to be something even worse than Thrax.
    • Thrax himself has taken interest in the kit and the adaptability of these viruses. While he can kill anything with a single touch of his left index finger, he's taking notes about how the virus can adapt to render it immune to potential cures and is hoping that he can get some of these adaptive abilities if it means getting closer to fame. He's also wondering if sentient versions of these viruses appear inside the body so that he can potentially talk to them.
  • Various villains specializing in mind control have taken notes on the properties of the Neurax Worms. They've even expressed interest in having some samples to better understand them and how to improve mind control functions, both for the worms and for their own plans. Unsurprisingly, this didn't sit well with mind control victims and they are willing to work with others and offer advice in eradicating this particular virus.
  • Albert Wesker immediately wanted to get his hands on his kit so that he can get closer to his goals. Given that it's locked away tightly in the Pantheonic vaults, he's more than content to make plans that will end with him getting the kit for the time being. He's more than wondering if he can use the kit's adaptive capabilities and apply to other viruses such as the T-Virus. He is highly intrigued about the Necroa virus and has wondered if he can use it to create more undead monstrosities.
  • The Enclave heard about the kit from others and consider it as a potential asset in fighting for their America, especially if it means exterminating anything they deem inhuman. While The FEV already has a couple of lethal variant that can kill its victims, there's already some discussion amongst scientists on how more dangerous the FEV will be should it gain the abilities that the kit's viruses have.
  • Arguably the only instance of the kit being used for something that doesn't involve causing the collapse of society was using some Neurax Worms (specifically dubbed "Santa's Little Helper" during that time) during a tyrannical regime that outlawed happiness and anything that's constitued as "fun". Many deified tyrants have taken umbrage with how those worms could disrupt their rule and inspire a potential rebellion against their regime. In fairness, given the Neurax Worm's mind control properties, it's possible to use the Neurax Worms to force someone to accept a tyrant's reign.
  • Setting aside the fact that it's possible to give a deadly world-ending virus a stupid name, it's more than possible to recreate several infamous events such as The Black Death as a result of the kit's versatility. With enough custom tinkering, it's even possible to create something similar to The Sleeper's effects or even replicate The Thing's capabilities. The Thing somehow gaining access to the kit and obtaining it's adaptive capabilities is a nightmare-inducing scenario for many.

    SIVA 
SIVA (Ironsbane)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/siva.png
SIVA overtaking terminals
  • Appearance: Red and black nanites
  • Class Level: 3
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil in the hands of the Devil Splicers, True Neutral by default.
  • Domains: Colonization, Red, Black, Nanotechnology
  • Portfolio: Grey Goo, Transhumanism, Applied Phlebotinum, Red and black but not really evil, Flesh-like corruption
  • In the time of the Golden Age of mankind lived a man named Clovis Bray I. Clovis was ambitious, for he wanted mankind to expand into the stars and barring the unethical experiments with a disconcertingly high mortality rate, his intentions were genuine. The creation of SIVA was, in fact, directed towards the colonization effort with its myriad of applications but none of it was intended for military purposes. Whether or not it could of done its job well in colonizing is unclear as the Collapse destroyed much of mankind, leaving SIVA to be buried in their shadow.
    • It would be rediscovered by the Iron Lords thinking they could try and rebuild civilization but SIVA turned on them thanks to the intervention of the AI Warmind Rasputin after which is was buried yet again, but at the cost of all but one of the Iron Lords present. Following the events after the Taken Wars, the reformed House of Devils found SIVA and thus began their crusade to transcend everyone with SIVA's "gift". The Devil Splicers were stopped, their voice finally silenced and SIVA soon quarantined once more, but the techno-plague wasn't quite gone. A raid on one site sometime after Ghaul's attack would of posed a threat of resurfacing evil, but thankfully they were stopped before another crisis began.
    ~consume enhance replicate~
  • SIVA wasn't exactly brought to the Treasury. It was actually unleashed unto the House of Technology by the Devil Splicers, whose numbers had mysteriously spiked to dangerous proportions. The amount of SIVA turned out to have been hidden for quite some time, replicating underneath many deities noses and by the time people have noticed it had gained some serious traction. Robots and cyborgs that are sufficiently exposed to SIVA were corrupted into the machine zealots' service, as well as organics if enough of it overtakes them. Thankfully, the Splicers were driven out of the House before it could corrupt any of the other Houses and was placed under quarantine for quite some time, no deity coming in or out until it was made clear SIVA was gone.
    • Any and all SIVA recovered from the House was then immediately brought into Maximum Security and placed under lock and key within a room that's sealed off of any exits. The stuff lays dormant and on the off chance it did reactivate, it's armored enough that it would take some time to seem through not mentioning any of the other security provided from the SCP Foundation and GLaDOS. That said, all SIVA recovered only came from what was left over in the attack. It's not accounting for the ones the Splicers took as they left.
      • Orders were put out to hunt down the remaining Splicers, the Guardians and the Tenno spearheading such operations. Arthur Maxson also joined in given the Brotherhood of Steel's views on the dangers of technology should they be unchecked and fall into the wrong hands. Though this did tip people off in regards to the Brotherhood's nosiness ultimately the potential misuse of SIVA outweighed the uneasiness. For now, anyways.
  • The Grand United Alliance of Machines got to benefit from SIVA's arrival to the Pantheon the most seeing as how most of the Eliksni are already with their cause. One of their counselors, Brainiac, has his own plans for the technology in the meanwhile. This inevitably lead to people pointing fingers at them for possibly instigating such an attack given how those affiliated with them managed to evacuate safely and efficiently. Besides them, other deities seem to want to use the nanotechnology for their own benefits such as the Corpus, who want it to further enhance their technology and by extension further their armsdealing. Meanwhile the Enclave see SIVA as a great tool for rebuilding their new America in the Pantheon seeing how it was made for that purpose in mind.
    • Admittedly, individual members in alliances have shown intersest in utilizing SIVA for similar reasons above. Given how much of a glorified arms race the Pantheonic conflict is, especially if it's with the GUAL and GUAC, it should come off as no surprise.
  • In spite of the damage it had done in the eponymous SIVA Crisis on Earth and in the Pantheon, there are those in the Pantheon who still believe //SIVA can be used for good. ~consume enhance replicate~. The Guardians, despite working to stop the Splicers, were once seen adorning themselves in ~SIVA armor and weaponry for a time before Ghaul came. Regardless, much of it remains safely ~replicating~ inside the Vault. So there is no need to view (SIVA) as a major threat to the gods' well being. ~consume~ repeat~

    The T-Virus 
The Tyrant Virus (t-Virus or T-Virus for short)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/t_virus_and_antivirus.png
The T-Virus (top) and the Antivirus (bottom), as depicted in the first film.
  • Description: A series of mutant strains created from the Progenitor Virus, the most infamous being that of a mutated strain found in the body of a leech.
  • Class Level: 3
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Domains: Viruses, Mutagens, Bio Organic Weapons
  • Portfolio: The Virus That Turns Humans and Various Animals Into Zombies And Can Mutate Insects And Plants
  • Sacred To: James Marcus, William Birkin, Albert Wesker
  • Bane Of: Chris and Claire Redfield, Leon Kennedy, Jill Valentine, Ada Wong, Rebecca Chambers, The Wolfpack, HUNK
  • Notable Infected: Jill Valentine (cured)
  • Notable Monsters/Mutations Include: Crimson Heads (Zombies after the V-ACT mutation), Lickers (Crimson Heads post-V-ACT mutation), MA-39 Cerberus (Zombified Doberman pinscher), MA-121 Hunter, Fi-3 Neptune (Zombified Great White Sharks), Plant 42, Plant 43/Ivy, Yawn, The Tyrant Series (Nemesis included) Bandersnatch, Stalkers (Zombie Lions), Titan (Zombie Elephant)
  • WARNING! LEVEL 4 BIOHAZARD!
  • The Umbrella Corporation - an international conglomerate specializing mostly in pharmaceuticals, but also dabbled in various consumer products such as cosmetics, industrial machine and chemical production, various health foods, as well as being active in the transport and tourism industries. But it was all a front. It's true purpose was bioweapons and viral research.
  • The origins of the various viruses comes from the Progenitor Virus, of which can only be found inside a rare plant known in German as the Sonnentreppe, or Stairway To the Sun. It can only be found inside the Sun Garden, located inside the Kijuju Autonomous Zone. The water tribe known as the Ndipaya worshipped the plants and would consume it's petals to see who was worthy of leading the tribe, once they survived the process.
  • The T-Virus was created by Umbrella researcher James Marcus by combining the Progenitor Virus with mutated DNA from a leech. Then, in a dick move, Marcus was assassinated and William Birkin took the credit for creating the now-christened Tyrant Virus.
  • Standard symptoms of a T-Virus infection on a human being includes swollen and later, itchy skin that will rot and sometimes, will fall off while the victim is alive. Their higher brain functions will also deteriorate. Upon death, the virus reanimates the corpse. Failure to destroy the head or burn the corpse will result in the V-ACT, in which the T-Virus mutates the dormant zombie into a Crimson Head, named after the reddish hue on their skin. The Crimson Head also has enhanced agility and it's fingernails have grown into razor-sharp claws. Failure to kill the Crimson Head will result in a second V-ACT event, resulting in the Licker.
  • The Think Tank somehow got their hands on a T-Virus sample and used it on an Alpha Deathclaw. In their infinite wisdom, the Think Tank tried to restrain the zombified Deathclaw inside Z-9 Crotalus DNA Preservation Lab. You know, where the Night Stalkers were created. That led to an even bigger problem when the undead Deathclaw infected Shadis and the other Night Stalkers. It took a squad of Brotherhood troops with guidance from the deified members of the B.S.A.A. to put down the outbreak before it could spiral out of control.
  • If the Think Tank is bad, then the Enclave is far worse. What happens when you take a T-virus sample and introduce it to a Super Mutant Behemoth? Two words: Zombie Behemoth.
  • Jill Valentine's connection to the T-Virus is a personal one. She was infected with the T-Virus during her escape from Raccoon City, but was later cured. After throwing both herself and Wesker out a window it was discovered that the T-Virus had gone dormant, but was eradicated by potent T-Virus antibodies in her bloodstream. Wesker used Jill's antibodies for his Uroboros Virus research, which is a sore spot for Jill. Now, with the T-Virus in the Pantheon, Jill volunteers her time in synthesizing the cure from her antibodies.
  • Poison Ivy's hatred of mankind is well-known. But seeing the T-Virus mutate the local fauna really puts her in a rage. Turns out that several of the mutated Ivy plants (or Plant 43, as they are officially known) had ventured into her temple and attacked her, forcing her to kill them.
  • Given that the T-virus can mutate various animals or render them undead like their human counterparts (i.e., Yawn, the Cerebi, and Neptune), it's highly suggested that keeping the T-virus away from any and all animals is a very good idea. Jill Valentine had a sit-down with Raccoon survivor Alyssa Ashcroft, who told her that she and a gang of survivors had to go through the Raccoon Zoo in order to get to a train. The T-virus had wreaked havoc on the place. The zombified hyenas and birds were among those that were manageable. The zombie lions were bad enough, but the zombie elephant was pushing it too far.

Class 4

    Escafil Device 
Escafil Device ("blue box", Morphing Cube)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/escafil_device.png
  • Appearance: A glowing light blue cube
  • Class Level: 4
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Animorphism, Touched By Andalites, Super Empowering
  • Domains: Morphing, Technology
  • The Escafil device is an artifact that gives an individual the power to morph... which is not that impressive in the Pantheon given the existence of magic and other shapeshifters.
  • It is operated by touch contact, and one individual, the "giver," who should already have the morphing ability, has to touch one side of it, while those receiving the morphing ability have to touch the other sides. When touched, it gives the user the permanent ability to "acquire DNA" from live animals and change ("morph") into the animal. There is no known limit as to how many morphs one can possess, though one would assume by means of its storage that the number would be quite high (highest so far is 53). And one can also heal using the morphing process. And while the process looks painful, it actually isn't.
  • In regards to the "morph" ability, the recipient, henceforth called "the Morpher", needs to make physical contact with the subject the Morpher wishes to "acquire" the DNA of, and concentrate hard to "acquire" them. Once that is done, the Morpher needs to think of that animal to transform into it. They will still retain their own consciousness but will also have to deal with the instincts of the animal they've turned into, and they also get the ability to thought-speak, even if the morph is capable of speech.
    • As Tobias can attest to, if the Morpher doesn't turn back to their original form before two hours have passed (time to morph and time to de-morph, usually two minutes, counts in that time limit), they run the risk of suffering Shapeshifter Mode Lock, though that's relatively easy to fix in the Pantheon.
    • "Acquiring" a morph cannot be done in the following conditions: 1) making contact with someone with the same morphing power (though morphs done by other shapeshifters hasn't been tested), and 2) while the Morpher is currently assuming a morph.
    • The Morpher must return to their natural form first before morphing into another form; transitioning between morphs is impossible.
    • Using the Frolis Maneuver, the Morpher can "combine the DNA" of several samples from the same species to create a new being for a morph, as perfomed once in the book series by one Aximili-Esgarrouth-Isthill. But one cannot use a specific example used in that combination unless the Morpher "acquires" that sample again.
    • There are rare cases where a Morpher is "allergic" to DNA they have acquired, becoming nauseous, and prone to involuntary bouts of morphing when under stress. After a certain amount of time, between a few days and a week, they commit the hereth Illint (which basically means "burping DNA"), forcing out the creature in its entirety. Through the cascading cellular regeneration, an entirely new animal is created, and expelled from the Morpher's "roster", with predictable results should this animal prove to be dangerous.
    • Z-space is involved when morphing into something of a different size than their regular body, extruding that mass into Z-space when assuming a smaller morph, and extracting from that space when assuming a larger morph.
    • The Morpher can morph any living multi-celluar animal whose DNA they have acquired. However, one cannot morph a plant, a dead animal, inanimate objects (like chairs), or bacterium. Energy Beings, Mechanical Lifeforms, and other beings without DNA (e.g. the Crystal Gems) are among these exceptions. And one wonders what would happen if a Planimal was acquired.
      • However, given that there's a lot more to a living being than just DNA, some wonder if the ones among the exceptions really are exceptions.
  • There is also the issue of clothing: unless it's skintight like a leotard or a wetsuit, it's not gonna transform with the Morpher, either bunching over them or being torn apart. This also includes shoes.
  • One can actually "acquire" from sentient beings like other humans, aliens, etc., but this is ill-advised not only for moral reasons, but because there are more than enough impostors in the Pantheon as it is, and there are better methods of doing that than the Escafil Device.
  • In regards to "acquiring", the subject falls into a trance and becomes docile, similar to being tranquilized, though this effect lasts for mere seconds, so actually utilizing this is difficult. Also, the acquiring process may very rarely has no effect whatsoever, so it's not really worth "weaponizing" this.
  • The Escafil Device's creator species, the Andalites, merely use one or two morphs and master them for the purposes of subterfuge. The Animorphs however utilized this ability to the fullest, amassing a vast arsenal of Earth animals (mostly) for various purposes, specifically battle. The potential this cube has makes it deserving of its position in the Maximum Security sector, despite all the other powers and artifacts in the Pantheon that surpass this in terms of power.

    Jumanji 
Do you hear that?

Jumanji

The Outside of the Board Game
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jumanji_2.jpg
The Inside of the Board Game
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jumanjigame.jpg
The Video Game Incarnation
  • Appearance: It is a very worn and old-looking board game with the name "Jumanji" on the front. The inside contains the board, the rules of the game, four game tokens (an elephant, a crocodile, a rhino, and a monkey), a pair of six-sided dice, and an ominous orb in the center.
  • Class Level: 4
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, Neutral Evil, and Chaotic Evil have all been suggested for the board game. But the video game version seems to be Chaotic Neutral with dashes of Good.
  • Portfolio: Artifact of Doom, The Game Come to Life, The Game Plays You, Jungle Drums, It Can Think, Reality Warper, Sentient Phlebotinum
  • Domains: Artifacts of Doom, Board Cames, Reality Warping, Sentient Phlebotinum
  • Similar Artifact: Zathura
  • The rules of the game are as follows- "A game for those who seek to find a way to leave their world behind. You roll the dice to move your token. Doubles gets another turn. The first player to reach the end wins. ADVENTURERS BEWARE: Do not begin unless you intend to finish. The exciting consequences of the game will vanish only when a player has reached Jumanji and called out its name."
  • The game itself appears to possess some form of sentience and contains its own pocket dimension. As the game progresses, various hazards from said pocket dimension are summoned and will not go away until one of the players wins the game.
  • Its name apparently means "many effects" in the Zulu language, likely a reference to its reality warping nature.
  • The game leaves little frame for one to change their mind about playing. The tokens immediately stick to the board the second they are taken out of the box.
  • It should also be noted that this game does NOT like cheaters. Attempting to cheat causes the culprit to begin to gradually transform into the animal represented by their assigned game token.
  • It would seem that the game has a preferred victim as well. Its luring drums are inaudible to adults, only able to be heard by children.
  • Due to the game's reality warping nature and its tendencies to lure over the most vulnerable to play, it has been deemed to be extremely dangerous by the higher-ups of the Pantheon and is kept under heavy lock and key in Maximum Security. Actually managing to start a game of Jumanji is a very severely punishable offense. Not only are the perpetrators obligated to finish the game, but they must also face the consequences after the fact (assuming what the players have been through isn't deemed enough of a punishment). Some leeway—of course—would be given to children who manage to get their hands on it, especially if they were not previously aware of the game's existence. The same however cannot be said for adults, who should know better.
  • Further to the back of the chamber is another game called Zathura, which involves flying to the location Zathura while dealing with Science Fiction hi-jinks rather than jungle ones. This game has proven less dangerous in general as it creates a Pocket Dimension for the gamers to play in, house and all, and thus the danger is exclusive only to those playing or those in the immediate area once the game starts. That being said, it's also on heavy lockdown too, as the Pantheon has no interest in having more killer robots, sudden flash freezes, lizard animals, or mini-black holes floating around the Pantheon than are necessary.
  • When reports came of a video game version of Jumanji, the Houses of Defense and Gaming immediately scrambled to find it and contain it alongside its board game counterpart. Other gods (some in the House of Gaming) either want to try the game out for themselves or lure kids into playing it.
    • After it was found, and after a long deliberate analysis of it by the SCP Foundation, seeing that it's somewhat less sadistic than its board game version and even seemed a little more helpful sometimes. While still dangerous, its security level isn't as high, given it merely takes its players into its own dimension, and while there is still the risk of death, that's not much of an issue in the Pantheon. Still, it's advised to play at your own risk.
  • Attempts at getting The Rock to play the video game incarnation have failed, even when he chose to play as Dr. Smolder Bravestone. It is unclear whether Jumanji cannot handle this exploitation of one of the game avatars or downright refuses such a joke.
    • On the other hand, Amy Pond appeared as Ruby Roundhouse even if she chose Dr. Bravestone, showing Jumanji handles some loopholes better than others.

  • Deep within the Imperial Palace that sprawls across the former Himalayas, under what was once Mt Everest is the Golden Throne. Dating back to the Dark Age of Technology, the Golden Throne was intended to open up the Eldar Webway for mankind. However, Horus betrayed his father, the Emperor of Mankind in the 31st millennium, rendering it a massive life support for the Emperor. For over a hundred centuries it maintains his broken form, and the Astronomican which allows safe Warp travel.
  • It has been placed in Maximum Security for a very good reason-without it the Emperor would die and the Imperium would be lost. The Emperor exists in an excruciating half-life as the beacon to human Warp travel, and it's suggested that by 999.M41 the life support is beginning to fail and won't sustain him forever. On the plus side, they managed to install a text-to-speech device.
  • Requires ten thousand psykers a day to keep the Emperor a micrometer away from true death. As such, every single psychic god in the Pantheon stays the hell away from it. J'onn J'onnz is utterly disgusted that this has to happen to keep humanity in the Age of the Imperium safe, and is trying to find an alternative. He is pleased to learn it can amplify psychic powers, though.
  • Though the Emperor is capable of existing as a physical being independent of the throne in the pantheon, he is still bound to it in the mortal realm (though he does have a major presence in the Warp). He is searching through the House of Technology for those who are willing to find a means of upgrading it, providing they are not xenos, to either try and regenerate him or become more mobile. The Emperor insists that gold must remain the predominant color if upgraded.
  • Those in charge of maintaining the Golden Throne were intrigued by the various means of interstellar travel in the pantheon. They are studying the House of Time and Space to as to make the Astronomican more precise and lessen the dangers of Warp travel. The Unbidden are among the forces who want to destroy it so as to make mankind easy pickings.
  • For the fact that the Golden Throne serves as the Emperor's life support, Oryx would be more than happy to destroy it not only for his beef with humanity but its proof that the Imperium of Man as a whole is apart of a bygone age feebly trying to cling to existence. The irony of someone like Oryx saying this wasn't lost to the Emperor. Come to think of it, anyone with a grudge against humanity wants to destroy the throne.

  • Domains: Chaos, Nature, Transformation
  • Creator: Azmuth
  • Current Owner: Ben Tennyson
  • Coveted by: Vilgax, Dr. Gero, Dr. Wily, Gate, Wat Tambor
  • Related Artifacts: The Escafil Device
  • The Omnitrix (full name Omnimatrix) was developed by Azmuth to promote interstellar peace as an apology to his lover Zenith after his previous creation Ascalon brought about violence. It can preserve over a million DNA samples in which the user can transform into that being for a limited time. It can also act as a back drive for the universe it came from in case any species go extinct.
  • The Omnitrix was meant for Max Tennyson, but being Max's grandson, the close genetic match allowed Ben (and, in an alternate timeline, Gwen) to use it. The Omnitrix donated to the The Great Treasury is actually just the 'prototype' Azmuth created. The real 'completed' one is with Ben himself, having been given to him after defeating Dagon.
  • In regards to its use in the Pantheon, given that there are plenty of different species that Ben can potentially copy, he was given a decree by the Court of the Gods not to scan any overly powerful species, trusting that he would keep to this warning until they can fully work out the kinks of what to restrict. Ben being well, Ben decided to scan the low-level Saiyan Cabba on the quiet and it worked out OK - until the moon came out and he transformed into a Great Ape that promptly wrecked the area before emergency Court restrictions finally kicked it and de-transformed him. Cabba's Saiyan data was wiped in the process.
    • Since then, Ben has been very careful about scanning species which he isn't supposed to, even turning down the chance despite Son Goku’s insistent pleas. Some time after Azmuth's ascension, he and a Court committee (composed of Technology residents and GUAG White Hats) worked arduously to catalogue the multitudes of species in the Pantheon that are too dangerous for Ben to scan. He managed to convince Ben to surrender the Omnitrix for a while and input the necessary restrictions into it. This is only unlockable by Azmuth and selected GUAG members such as mid to high-ranking White Hats. The new program that prevents Ben from harnessing prohibited species updates itself periodically for every new ascension to the Pantheon.
    • The DNA samples used by the Omnitrix come from the artificially grown planet Primus (not to be confused with the Transformers god of the same name), which essentially serves as an archive for those samples. Contrary to popular belief, the Omnitrix doesn't need to be constantly synchronized to Primus (the connection of which can transcend dimensions and thus has no problem reaching the Pantheon) in order to function, any more than an iPod needs constant access to one's computer to play music that was added in. Azmuth took great care to segregate any DNA samples foreign to his and Ben's universe from the usual samples.
    • As for how these samples can go, they can go beyond just organic and can copy synthetic (Echo Echo, Upgrade), cosmic (Way Big), and even multi-dimensional (Alien X). However, it's limited to samples from species with a certain level of intellectual sapience (in Earth, available species include human, dolphin, and mouse) to avoid corruption of the user's intellectual mind, which also explains the timeout function. The most feral transformation from Ben's universe available thus far without repercussion is the Vulpimancer species (Wildmutt).
    • There are plenty of rules regarding what Ben can and cannot scan, but above all, he cannot scan a species that can manipulate all aspects of reality beyond universe-level. What does that mean? Alien X, Ben's known most powerful alien (there are actually stronger ones, but Ben doesn’t know them), can destroy and recreate universes at will provided his two personas are in agreement. Any being that surpasses this level of power, such as being able to recreate universes without any significant drawback or weakness will be unscannable, instead getting the message "SCAN PROHIBITED".
      • Hence, Ben cannot scan beings with the purpose of maintaining large swaths of the cosmos (like The Living Tribunal or the Monitors), species with the natural ability to surpass god or god-like beings (like Saiyans, even if Goku was the only known one to achieve this) and species specifically stated to be gods (like the Gods of Destruction, Supreme Kais, or mythical gods with universe-busting potential). Ben is pretty bummed out by all this, but is pretty confident that he will never need to go that far in a fight. Azmuth has assured Ben in his typical dry way that the restrictions can be lifted in absolute emergencies when help cannot be summoned.
  • The Omnitrix has quite an expansive amount of features the user has access to.
    • The first and most known one is Transformation, which turns the user (instantly) into the prime (a.k.a fittest and healthiest) version of the selected species (but never their own species) relative to their own age, and (when working properly) downloads the instincts native to that species to avoid cases of How Do I Shot Web?. These transformations come equipped by the Omnitrix with special handicaps needed to sustain the transformation, such as NRG's containment suit, Goop's anti-gravity projector, and Brainstorm's breathing brace. It may also provide the user with uniforms, some even retaining elements associated with the alien's homeworld attire.
      • Despite being able to use synthetic beings' "DNA samples", the Omnitrix can only make incomplete transformations in such cases, like with Galvan Mechamorphs (Upgrade).
      • The DNA scanned has to be different enough from the host's to be registered. The best example for "different" enough would be the Gourmands (Upchuck), which have two subspecies: Perk and Murk, both of which are accessible to a Ben as separate Upchuck forms. Therefore, he can theoretically turn into a meta-human if their DNA is different enough
      • Transformations can be automatic if the user's life is in danger and the Omnitrix will turn its user into the needed alien to survive.
      • The time limit for transformation is usually up to 10 Earth minutes (for the prototype Omnitrix), but tends to be inconsistent due to Ben slapping on the Omnitrix too hard whenever he activates it.
      • In addition, the user can only transform into one alien at a time and would need to wait out the time limit and recharge mode before continuing. However, with the Life Form Lock function or Master Control, a user can remain in one transformed state for an indefinite amount of time. That said, for the completed Omnitrix, Ben can choose to turn back earlier, skipping the Recharge mode and letting him transform again far quicker.
    • The second is Recharge, which it reverts to after the time limit has been reached to prevent the user from being overwhelmed by the DNA samples as it fuses with the user's biology itself. This state lasts until its internal core is refreshed enough to do another Transformation.
    • Third is the Capture setting, where the Omnitrix can store new DNA samples into its database, which works either by touch or by extended projection, regardless of whether or not the user is currently transformed.
    • Fourth is the Recalibration mode, only seen in the Prototype Omnitrix. This only occurred when it has been dormant for a long period of time without use, in which some time is required before it's available for use once more.
    • Fifth is the Self-Destruct Mode, which is the only thing that can destroy the Omnitrix (it can otherwise survive even multiversal-level destruction). The default time is set to 30 seconds, but if the charge were to build up long enough (as many as a few days), it can destroy the entire universe.
  • Other features of the Omnitrix include a Universal Translator (almost pointless in the Pantheon), protection from mind control and possession, protection from toxic influences, universal-range GPS, voice command, randomizer function, homing device, and audio-visual two-way communication. It can also manipulate DNA of other beings in range, mostly for restorative purposes.
  • Most significant of these functions however is the Master Control, unlockable only by Azmuth. In this mode, the user can remain transformed indefinitely, and change between forms without reverting to their default form first.
  • As for failsafes, on top of Self-Destruct Mode, a green energy eruption occurs when someone tries to remove the Omnitrix from Ben by force. It's also genetically locked to Ben in its present-day perspective (meaning even a younger version of Ben can't use it). It also preserved the user's self-consciousness for example by not going into Recharge mode while the user is still split as a Splixson (Ditto).
  • That said, the Omnitrix still has hundreds of other features Ben does not know about. For example, he does not know how to access the setting that changes the user's gender to adapt to another species.
  • There are theories as to why on occasion the Omnitrix doesn't transform Ben into the alien he desires. Most of these theories tend to assume the Omnitrix is sentient in a sense and chooses what he needs to be rather than what he wants to be. Given it's sentient enough to manipulate Ben's hand when it and he were dimensionally displaced, this is highly likely.
  • Despite the wide variety of available DNA samples, the Omnitrix has exception in what it can scan. Besides the prohibited species stated above, these include:
  • Within limits set by the Court of the Gods (and later Azmuth), Ben has tried collecting DNA samples from the following Pantheon denizens.
    • Twilight Sparkle: She wanted to see what if it would turn him into the ideal pony or the ideal alicorn, and see how far it can go. Did not work, as the Omnitrix cannot scan magical creatures. But it later turns out that was because of Twilight's overflowing potential (likely from having absorbed three other alicorns' energy once to safeguard it from Tirek), as well as the fact that she was an alicorn, that just managed to count her in the upper limit.
      • She later called for Spike, Applejack, Starlight Glimmer, and Rainbow Dash for testing the Omnitrix scanning, and it turns out that they work. His transformations' abilities were also tested, but the copied's experiences (e.g. Rainbow's Wonderbolt training, Starlight's learned spells) gave them an edge over Ben. Of course, the upper limit means no scanning the Princesses or Discord.
    • The TARDIS: Done by accident after Ben met with the Doctor, who refused to be scanned by the Omnitrix because he does not want to see a young kid running around with his 13 lives and two hearts like an idiot. Due to her nature as a living spaceship in the form of a commonplace object (for the 1960s anyway), the Omnitrix cannot scan her.
    • Scarface: Scan successful, but out of respect for Scarface and his kind's code, Ben doesn't use the transformation.
    • Groot: Scan successful.
    • Treebeard: Scan successful, surprisingly. Presumably, Ben can scan elves, dwarves, hobbits, orcs, or even Uruk-Hai, but not Maiar such as Gandalf.
    • Goliath of the Manhattan Clan: Scan successful, though because he tested it out on the day, he instantly turned into stone. The timeout function still worked to turn him back, though.
    • Lion-O (currently under He-Man's tutelage): Scan was successful, though the resulting transformation would depend on the animal form of the genetic donor and would either resemble some type of cat that has not been seen on-screen or a dog.
    • Legion: Unsuccessful since they're runtimes on a platform and not nanites.
    • Optimus Prime: Scan successful. However, Ben has to keep scanning Alt forms each time he does. Optimus notes that Ben's transformation is akin to Create-a-Bot.
    • Yoda: Scan successful, though Yoda has asked to keep this private.
    • Yoshi: Scan successful.
    • Xenomorph: While sentient enough and adaptable, they're not not actually sapient, so the impromptu scan Ben did on it while he and his friends were fighting it was unsuccessful.
    • Minions (with permission from Gru): Scan successful, though won't use it at Gru's conditions.
  • He hasn't scanned these yet, but there are theories as to the results:
    • The Crystal Gems: Would probably work, depending on the scanned Gem (Amethyst, Pearl, Peridot, Ruby, Sapphire, or even Diamond). Due to his hybrid nature, it's advised not to scan Steven.
    • Digimon: Probably wouldn't work, as they're comprised of data, though it's sort of debatable even then.
    • Pokémon: Likely a case-by-case basis depending on each species' sapience, though it's likely that most of them are available for transformations. Cases like Team Rocket's Meowth and those from the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games are almost definitely scannable, though.
    • The Flash: Could work, but the upper limit prohibits Ben from scanning Barry or Wally.
    • SpongeBob SquarePants: Possible.
    • Living Planets such as Mogo: Theoretically possible, but as Mogo is over the upper limit...
    • New Gods such as Darkseid or Orion: Theoretically possible, but both are well over the upper limit.
    • Asgardians like Thor: Possible, but he's over the upper limit.
    • Scooby-Doo: Depends on the iteration. The one with alien ancestry definitely counts.
    • Cell: Probable, more definite if the mutant limitation is lifted.
    • Quirk-activated humans: Possible, though has been prohibited from scanning Deku or All Might for their One For All Quirk.
    • Snoopy: Probable.
    • Spider-Man: Possible.
    • The Living Tribunal: Theoretically possible, but he's well over the upper limit.
    • Matoran: Possible, and the Omnitrix would generate a Kanohi mask for survival. It's not known if Ben transforming into this species would result in him becoming a Toa.
    • Genetic experiments: Despite technically being mutants and thus shouldn't really work with any of them, they are theoretically possible, mainly because all experiments are (for lack of a better word) "natively-born" sapient creatures (even the more simple-minded experiments like X-001/Shrink have enough sapience to function like people). Also, thanks to the sheer genius of Dr. Jumba Jookiba, each experiment's DNA are unique and complete enough that each one can be considered their own distinct species. However, Ben is prohibited from scanning them because the experiments are still technically in violation of the United Galactic Federation's laws against genetic experimentation, and the Omnitrix itself is also in violation of those laws because the device's functions are technically a form of genetic experimentation as well. (The experiments have been pardoned—after initially being "exiled"—thanks to Lilo proving that they can be contributing members of society, but this does not mean that others can use Jumba's existing experiments for any genetic experimentation of their own.)
  • Most absolute xenophobes consider the Omnitrix tantamount to blasphemy for encouraging "species-mixing".
