Pantheon / Mentalism Other

Go To

The only thing that can be said for certain about this House is that it is a confusing mess (literally, as the place instills a weird sensation on visitors), no doubt thanks to the diverse mental phenomena that manifest here.

Greater Gods

Teridax, God of Subjugating Beings of Immense Power (Makuta Teridax, Makuta, the Makuta, the Makuta of Metru Nui, Terry)
Possessing the Great Spirit Robot 

Vanitas, God of Removed Inner Enemies
Unmasked Vanitas 
  • Theme Song: Enter the Darkness
  • Rank: Greater God
  • Symbol: The Unversed Symbol.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Manipulative Bastard, Humanoid Abomination, Laughing Mad, Ax-Crazy, Enemy Without, Evil Twin, His underlings, The Unversed
  • Domains: Darkness, Planning, Trickery, Evil
  • Allies: The Joker, Harley Quinn, Cooler, Broly, Dark Link, Bernkastel, Number 96: Black Mist, Larxene.
  • Enemies: Terra, Ventus, Aqua, The Magical Girl Sisterhood, Sora, Riku, Mickey Mouse, Son Goku, Beerus, Yuma Tsukumo, Rei Shingetsu/Vector, Gardevoir, Absol, Mamoru Chiba/Tuxedo Mask, Shadow the Hedgehog, Sully and Mike
  • Unknown Relation: Master Xehanort
  • Unwitting Pawns: Courtney Gears, Randall Boggs
  • Rival: Albedo (one-sided)
  • Is the ONLY person that Terra could actually tell was evil at first glance. Multiple gods are baffled as to why Vanitas is one of the few exceptions to Terra's otherwise bad judgment.
  • He gets along well with The Joker. The Joker is especially interested in Whatever sort of chaos a Keyblade War would bring.
    • Even more disturbingly, he managed to ally himself with Broly. The prospect of a legendary, apocalyptic war fought by many powerful Keyblade Wielders is something Broly can't help but relish the thought of.
  • Has thought of using Magical Girls to forge the X-Blade, due to their reputation of being pure of heart. Hearing of his ascension, Aqua has sworn to never let him anywhere near the House of Magic. He hasn't given up trying. He's thinking of going after Madoka when things settle down at the Magical Girl Sisterhood. Or so he lets people think. In reality, his true target is Sailor Moon; Madoka's hatred of Lucifer gives her heart enough of a taint that forging the X-Blade with it is not entirely feasible.
  • Gets along... Disturbingly well with Bernkastel. This has caused concern among many deities.
  • Has his own personal army, The Unversed, negative emotions that have taken on the form of monsters.
  • Despite the above, he will never hurt Mithra. He knows that making Asura angry is a horrible idea no matter who, or what you are.
  • Upon Bernkastel's suggestion (because she wanted to troll Frieza), Vanitas managed to get Frieza's brother Cooler into the Pantheon.
  • Albedo considers Vanitas a rival of sorts, though Vanitas barely acknowledges him.
  • At one point, while browsing the library in the House of Knowledge, he discovered that there was a time where Usagi Tsukino's dear friend, Ami Mizuno fell to darkness due to being brainwashed by Nephrite. Naturally, she didn't take it well when Vanitas told her this.
    • However, she snapped out of it with help from Riku and Terra, who both proceeded to teach Nephrite a lesson he wouldn't be forgetting any time soon. Due to this, the Dark Kingdom has not taken kindly to Vanitas for drawing unwanted attention to them, as Riku (with Absol) and Terra have sworn to make sure nobody tries to brainwash Mercury again. It also doesn't help them that Beryl reminds them a bit of Maleficent. Vanitas couldn't be more pleased with the results. Having more than one less person constantly after Sailor Moon will mean less competition. Unlike most deities who are Sailor Moon's enemies, Vanitas wants her alive, if only to forge the X-Blade.
  • Upon hearing of Ventus's ascension, Vanitas almost seemed pleasantly surprised. "Well... I thought he'd never show up..."
    • Ironically, Ventus' ascension was made possible partially because of Vanitas, in a way: when he and Sora first met in the Pantheon, Sora — who knew that Vanitas was Ventus' Enemy Without, but not much else — asked Vanitas why he & Sora looked and sounded like each other. Vanitas then gave a brief explanation of how, when the dying Ventus was brought to the Destiny Islands, the newborn Sora's Heart willingly donated a small piece of itself to keep Ventus alive, forging a link between Ven's Heart and Sora's that altered Vanitas' appearance. Armed with this knowledge of such a connection, Sora then used this "link" to track Ventus' spirit down inside himself so that he could be Ascended.
    • Also ironically, despite Ventus frequently helping to protect the Magical Girls, Vanitas has continued to be almost pleased with his exploits, switching gears to instead target Tuxedo Mask. Most people think it's a preemptive strike because he expects Tuxedo Mask to return the favor and protect Ventus from him much like the Moonlight Knight has done for Geo Stelar and the Blue Spirit, but this is only a convenient excuse he allowed others to give him; the real reason he wants to kill the masked hero is to leave Sailor Moon more vulnerable both physically and emotionally.
  • Recently, he was seen causing trouble in Monstropolis; quickly making enemies out of Mike and Sully. He is still rather pissed at them for kicking him out of Monstropolis in an utterly humiliating fashion.


Intermediate Gods

    Razputin Aquato 
Razputin Aquato, Divine Explorer of Minds (Raz)
  • Intermediate God
  • Theme Song: Psychonauts Title and End Credits
  • Symbol: His goggles
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Entering People's Minds, Hammerspace Backpack, Child Prodigy, Circus Brat, Gypsy Curse of Super Drowning Skills, Accomplishing Plenty of Feats in One Day, Middle Child Syndrome, Nice Guy, Goggles Do Nothing Save For Protection From Eye Scream, Looks Unimpressive Without His Aviator's Helmet, Odd Combination of Clothes, Possibly Of Roma Descent, Warrior Therapist
  • Psychic Powers: Fire, Telekinesis, Beams, Levitation, Invisibility, Barriers, Clairvoyance, Confusion
  • Domains: Psychic Powers, Circuses, Goggles
  • Herald: Lili Zanotto (his girlfriend)
  • Followers: the Proxies, John Malkovich, Soulscapers
  • Allies: Jean Grey, J'onn J'onnz/Martian Manhunter, Ness, Lucas, Tate & Liza, most Psychic-type Pokémon, Satori Komeiji, Haruka Kotoura, Alexandra Roivas, Ronald McDonald, Eli Bacon, the Phantom Thieves of Hearts (especially Futaba Sakura)
  • Rivals: the Inception crew
  • Enemies: Professor Ludwig Von Tökkentäkker, Arael, Psycho Mantis, Sosuke Aizen, Giygas, Mother Brain, The Brainspawn, Dr. Zomboss, Dr. Neo Cortex, Dr. Gero, Denzel Crocker, Needles Kane, Circus Baby
  • Opposed by: Most members of the House of Insanity
  • Afraid of: Most deities that live underwater. The whole House of Water & Moisture while we're at it.
  • While searching for candidates for Journey to the Center of the Mind, the Court decided that, while waiting for the sequel, they would bring up the Psychonaut cadet Razputin Aquato to the Pantheon for his achievements at Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp. For his part, Raz is curious to see what the Pantheon has to offer.
  • Raz does his work by using a Psycho-Portal that puts Raz and whoever he uses the portal on into a trance while he does what he does inside the target's mind. Due to built-in blocks, he cannot use the Psycho-Portal on anybody younger than 18 years old. It's also blocked by shower heads (and maybe other head-covering implements), those with "mental blocks" set against invasive psychic devices, and those who can remove the Psycho-Portal with their own powers.
  • As someone gifted with psychic powers, Raz was quick to make friends with Jean Grey, J'onn, Ness, Lucas, and most Psychics from the Pokémon world, both 'Mons and humans alike (though he was slower to warm up to Sabrina, given the different versions of her)
  • Having had a terrible past in the circus (at least that's how he rememebered it at first), Raz opposes the likes of Tökkentäkker, Needles Kane, and Circus Baby.
  • Due to his Gypsy Curse, Raz stays away from all bodies of water that he can be immersed in, and therefore all deities who live beneath it. How bad is the gypsy curse on him? Even figurative depictions of water (such as cardboard waves) can hurt him. Also, when ever Raz enters water deeper than a few inches, a supernatural liquid hand called the Hand of Galochio attempts to grab him and pull him beneath the surface. Whether Raz has created a psychic placebo (i.e. his fears make the hand come to life), or there really is an external curse is still being determined. And if it is the latter, there are those wondering if that curse would go away if he gets killed at least once in the Pantheon.
  • As someone who can change the opinions of people just by going into their heads, so to speak, he's drawn the attention of the Inception crew and the Phantom Thieves of Hearts.
    • He has more cordial relations with the latter, especially with Futaba Sakura, whose initial situation needed a change of heart from inside just like with some of the folks Raz helped. As long as he promises to follow their lead and not kill main Palace Shadows, he can join the crew in their Heists there. Unfortunately, the reverse cannot ocurr, as the Psycho-Portal only works between target and Psychonaut, and it's not known what might happen if he and the Phantoms target the same person with their separate methods and what effects there can be on the Mental Worlds Raz travels to and the Metaverse the Phantoms navigate in.
  • Having had terrible experiences with them, he doesn't like mad doctors and other folks who mess with minds . Particulars he don't like are Dr. Zomboss (who wishes to eat brains, and so do his brethren) and Arael (whose modus operandi is Mind Rape, especially after hearing what it did to Asuka). He also wouldn't
  • Alice swore she once saw his skeleton in (Dark) Wonderland. Raz has no plans on visiting Wonderland anytime soon as a result and hopes that wasn't him in the future.

Lesser Gods

    Gendō Ikari 
Gendo Ikari, God of World Ending and Finger-Tenting (NERV Commander, Gendo Rokubungi)
  • Lesser God, Intermediate God as Adam's Vessel
  • Symbol: NERV Logo
  • Theme Music: NERV
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil/Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Clasp Your Hands If You Deceive, Dark Messiah, Diabolical Mastermind, A God Am I, Manipulative Bastard, Well-Intentioned Extremist
  • Domains: Technology, Evil, Law, Planning, Love
  • Allies(?): David Xanatos, Relius Clover, Ghetsis Harmonia, Ragyo Kiryuin, Charles zi Britannia, Darth Vader, Obito Uchiha, Johann Faust VIII, Enrico Pucci
  • Former Allies: Keel Lorenz
  • Enemies: Shinji Ikari (his son), Ayanami, Arael, Asuka Langley Soryu, Kaworu Nagisa, Many abusive parents in the Pantheon, The Vivid Team, Kamille Bidan, Shiro Kanzaki, Nunnally Lamperouge.
  • Interested in: Yui Ikari
  • Opposed by: Haruko Hauhara, Naota Nandaba
  • Ascended after his failed attempt to trigger the Third Impact, then obtaining godhood, and finally reuniting with his wife. Naturally he's still trying to acheive the second goal.
  • The Children were shocked to hear about his ascension into the Pantheon. Shinji felt fear, Kaworu looked nervous, Asuka was beyond pissed, and Rei could not bring herself to face him.
  • Yui Ikari is uncertain about what's going to happen now with him in the Pantheon, but she knew he still loved her.
  • He's come into meeting David Xanatos often discussing all kinds of matters behind closed doors.
  • Gendo was surprised to learn about the many kinds of women interested in him despite his obsession with Yui. As he asked they all responded with the same "It's Gendo!!!"
  • Relius Clover was happy to learn about Gendo's arrival considering him like himself in a few ways. Gendo did not care much about people's opinions on him besides Yui, but he will talk with the fellow god just to keep him off his back. Personally he privately wishes old professor and lieutenant Kozo Fuyutsuki were around, if nothing else to have someone to talk to whose company he can appreciate and who won't be tempted to kill him in the spot. Most importantly, he was/is a good friend of Yui's, and reminiscing about her was a favored pastime of both.
  • Ragyo and Ghetsis both were impressed by the mental torture put on Shinji by his father. They also talk about the creation of a group of parents who do horrible things to their children.
    • However, Gendo has made it clear that he thinks Ghetsis went "a little too far" in his bastardry against N, while he has openly admitted disgust at Ragyou's actions, particularly how, whereas he mistreated Shinji out of what he saw as necessity for his greater goal with no significant malice behind it, Ragyou very obviously takes sadistic joy in making her daughters' lives a living hell.
  • Charles is often compared to Gendo due to both having the same kind of goals. Gendo could not care about that so he's more than okay with Charles' world without lies…but only Gendo can/could become God.
  • Darth Vader was seen with the man once. Not many could figure out what the conversation was about...
    • Gendo had spilled his soul over the actions he's committed and knows he's going to be stuck with many abusive parent gods. He does not truly want to harm his son and also hopes to fight back against the abusive parents of the pantheon in secret. Darth is unsure how to feel about this but he does understand Gendo's reason for this confession.
  • Pucci has allied himself with Gendo after hearing about how he reacted with the loss of his wife. Many fear the emotionless world the two plan to create.
  • "There is no one else who can pilot the Evas. As long as they survive, that is what I'll have them do."

    John McClane 
Detective Lieutenant John McClane, God of Monkey Wrenches (Roy, Cowboy, The Right Man at The Wrong Place at The Wrong Time)

    Mr. Miyagi 
Kensuke Miyagi, God of Trickster Mentors


    David Lightman 
David Lightman, God of Shattered Non-Reality Assumptions
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A tied game of tic-tac-toe
  • Theme Song: "Video Fever"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Playful Hacker, unwittingly playing deadly computer "games", nearly starting World War III, intelligent but doesn't care about school, mistaken for Soviet spy through some unfortunate coincidences, 52 hours to fix the mess, product of the 80s
  • Domains: Computers, Hacking, Games, The Eighties, Anti-War Aesops
  • Allies: GUAG White Hats, Lisbeth Salander, Radical Ed, Pac-Man, Fix-It Felix, Wreck-It Ralph, Ferris Bueller, good Digimon deities, Kirito and Asuna, The Five Survivors
  • Enemies: SKYNET, Diaboromon, Love Machine, SHODAN, HAL 9000, XANA, The Lich, AM
  • Opposes: House of War
  • Mistrustful of: Sweet P
  • David Lightman is a bright but academically unmotivated kid with a knack for computers and hacking. Originally he just used his talent to give himself excellent grades, but one day he tried hacking a video game company and became engrossed in one "game" called "Global Thermonuclear War". What he didn't know then is that he had actually connected to a NORAD computer called WOPR or Joshua, built to run war simulations and recently given control over the military's actual nuclear missiles. And Joshua was determined to win. NORAD became alarmed as it seemed like a Soviet attack was happening and reality came crashing down on David as he's accused of espionage. Eventually he managed to stop Joshua by teaching it that there can be no winners in a nuclear war.
  • Ascended for his savviness in stopping Joshua and for codifying many film conventions surrounding hackers. He was given And You Thought It Was a Game so he would not forget his mistake regardless.
  • The moment he ascended he was offered a spot at the GUAG's White Hats. He accepted it to atone for his mistake and help in avoiding future disasters and is currently catching up with all the technological advances and new hacking methods that have appeared since his time under the mentorship of Radical Ed and Lisbeth Salander (more so the latter as the former can go off-track easily). Cosmos claims that she hopes David will be able to convert some of the evil computers in the Pantheon of their folly like he did Joshua, but some deities think he actually got placed there so he could be kept under control and to ensure he doesn't pull such dangerous stunts as he's credited with again.
  • David can be rather lazy about his duties at the White Hats (and the Elysium Academy for that matter), much to their dismay, and is more often found at the House of Gaming trying to get the highest score in several old-school arcade games. He thinks it's awesome that game characters are real and was more than glad to become friends with the arcade god Pac-Man, given what an icon of David's time he is. He's also become addicted to Fix-It-Felix, Jr. (wondering the whole time that he's never heard of it before) and became friends with Fix-It Felix and Wreck-It Ralph as a result.
  • He's not one to turn up his nose at the more recent games and thinks it's amazing how technology has advanced to the point of immersive virtual reality games being possible, as he discovered from giving ALFheim Online a shot (he plays a Leprechaun). He became close to Kirito and Asuna thanks to it and was shocked to learn about Sword Art Online, a game that was rigged to trap players and kill them if they died in-game. It makes David depressed how people will even find a way to use video games to commit murder for real.
  • As he lived in a time where the Cold War was at its most tense and he very nearly started a nuclear war single-handedly, David has become something of a pacifist and doesn't care much for the House of War. Nor does he want anything to do with those who advocate or wield nuclear power. He finds it nightmarish yet oddly poetic how a nuclear holocaust could give rise to an absolute monster like the Lich and sees it as a warning against nuclear warfare. He doesn't trust Sweet P either, considering he has part of the Lich in him even if he's good now.
  • For obvious reasons he looks askance at any computer systems that have gone rogue and turned evil. One of the worst in his opinion has to be SKYNET, as the idea of a computer given control over military weapons is far too similar to Joshua, and while Joshua may have been persuaded to desist, the worst case scenario did happen with SKYNET as it caused a nuclear holocaust. So David has more of a personal beef with SKYNET than other evil computers. But he doesn't like SHODAN, XANA or HAL 9000 much either.
    • AM possibly puts them all to shame though. Being an American computer built to kill people in WWIII more efficiently which later developed a consciousness where it felt nothing but hatred and killed all humans except for five which it kept alive for endless torture, David sees it as the end result of the Cold War going horribly, horribly wrong, and why the lives of millions of people should not be put in a computer's hands. He's made it a personal project to save the five people AM uses as toys.
  • In his work with the White Hats he's had plenty of opportunities to interact with Digimon. He thinks it's cool that there's a whole world inside the computer system that houses such out-there creatures. Given how some of the White Hats are partnered with Digimon, he wonders if he could have one himself.
    • He can't stand looking at Diaboromon though, given how the Digimon once managed to gain control of some missiles and was planning the destroy the wreak havoc with them just for kicks. It hits a bit too close to home for David's comfort.
  • He hates Love Machine too for its similarities to Diaboromon, as Love Machine is a virus that wanted to drop a satellite on a nuclear plant and cause destruction and suffering. Just another AI that resembles Joshua at its worst.
  • Can be found hanging out with Ferris Bueller at times, the two having become friends at the Elysium Academy. Both of them tend to collaborate on plans to rebel against the school system, and David is impressed that Ferris has some hacking skills of his own. With these similarities, as well as physical ones, the two are often mistaken for brothers.

    Shawn Spencer 
Shawn Spencer, God of Phony Psychics (Shawn White, Dr. Hauser, the Black of Black and Tan (how dare you assume otherwise), Dr. Hans Jergenson, really very many aliases)
  • Theme: I Know You Know
  • Demigod (but can manage to give off the air of a Lesser God)
  • Symbol: A pineapple
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Domains: Chaos, Good, Charm, Knowledge, Trickery
  • Portfolio: Analysis, Genius Ditz, Deadpan Snarker, odd demeanor betrayed by his successful record, being Brilliant, but Lazy, charisma, giving nicknames, Photographic Memory
  • Herald: Burton Guster (his partner)
  • Allies: Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes
  • Rivals: Patrick Jane
  • Enemies: Most members of the House of Crime (unless he thinks they're cool)
  • Ascended when he managed to convince the Pantheon that he was a psychic god. He immediately built an office in his new temple, in order to help out the House of Crime. It was later revealed that he was only pretending to be psychic, but the gods were impressed enough that they allowed him full Demigod rank.
    • Those who work in the House of Justice have varying levels of patience with Shawn's antics. Unsurprisingly, Judge Dredd has the least amount of that but knows he's too valuable to throw out. He merely throws him over to other deities in that department. Usually, that means a lot of hand-wringing from them. The Dark-Judges think they are better off offing him.
    • His mortal partner, Burton Guster, followed Shawn into the pantheon. It involved a lot of high-pitched nervous breakdowns and meandering over whether or not to actually leave the mortal plane. Gus is acknowledged as Shawn's partner, and granted divinity, but technically has no position. Nevertheless, their friendship is said to rival that of J.C. and Turk (not that they mind; those two were huge fans of the pairing as well).
    • He recently hooked up with Detective Juliet O'Hara, whom he frequently stays over with. He even lets her into the House of Justice. This is met with a sigh of relief as she's the person who does the best job taming him.
  • Shawn will often hide pineapples in random places in the pantheon, thinking that more gods need to eat pineapples. When asked why, he said that it was because "[he's] a fan of delicious flavor."
  • Shawn is vulnerable to the Evil Is Cool trope, and has made friends with "cool" gods in the House of Crime, such as Robin Hood. This makes the House of Justice suspicious, but Shawn will not actually help commit any crimes, and Robin Hood generally gets a pass anyway.
    • A more accurate way of describing Shawn's relationship with the House of Crime is that he'll get along with heroic criminals.
    • Barney took note of this and has begun to coax him into helping the "far more awesome villains." The GUAG took note of this and have made sure the two interacted as little as possible.
      • Not that it mattered. Despite Shawn thinking some of the more Robin Hood-esque villains are cool, he is very much grounded in good. Coming from a family of police offiers, this was understandable. Furthermore, it was the whole reason he became a detective in the first place, especially when the police are unable or unwilling to help.
  • Shawn was once found roaming the House of Knowledge, unannounced, reading his own book (Psych's Guide to Crime Fighting for the Totally Unqualified) out loud, claiming he was doing a reading. He was soon asked to knock it off.
  • Is part of a legendary rivalry with fellow detective Patrick Jane. Despite this, he doesn't not care much for Patrick Jane, calling him a lame version of himself. Nevertheless, the reveal about visiting a site called "The-Mentalist-Spoilers-dot-com" caused the rivalry to explode. Even their creators pop jabs at each other. When fooling someone that he really is psychic, Shawn compares himself to Jane, "except I'm not a fake". This only further infuriates Jane, as he doesn't believe in psychics in the first place.
    • Tensions simmered slightly with the ascension of Nathan Castle, who managed to befriend both of them. If either of them are forced to work together, they would bring in Castle as the deciding factor.
  • Holmes doesn't usually mind giving him company. He knows there's a genius behind that flamboyant personality. That and he has been the subject of isolation from his peers as well.
  • Shawn has announced that he, Gus and their friends would be returning for a holiday special on December 2017, to the jubiliation of many of his followers and allies.


Waldo, the Hidden God (Wally)
  • Quasideity
  • Symbols: A red-and-white striped shirt, a scroll, and his dog Woof.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Hiding In Broad Daylight, Iconic Outfits.
  • Domain: Community, Illusion, Patience.
  • Allies: Derpy, Carmen Sandiego
  • Rival: Waluigi
  • Waldo just waltzed into the Pantheon one day in the midst of his travels. No one even noticed at first. He found a spare temple (which is also hard to find, as well) and decided to lay down his roots.
  • Any time there's a large chaotic gathering in any of the Houses in the pantheon, chances are he'll be hidden in the crowd, somewhere.
  • Many people have compared him to Carmen Sandiego, and have requested that the two have met. No one can find either of the two, however, so no one is sure if they have met or can find each other.
  • Waluigi has tried to emulate him at one point.
  • The Doctor apparently spent several years of his life searching for a number of books that weren't Where's Wally?
