  • Fears: Lord Tirek, Homura Akemi, Kiritsugu Emiya
  • Superior: Ryukishi 07
  • Bernkastel is a mysterious individual, her past is a relative unknown to most of the Pantheon. For some reason or another, the house to the goddess of miracles is that of a Shinto shrine in a wooded area much to Rika Furuede's annoyance.
  • There is a rather popular theory that Bernkastel and Rika are one in the same because they look so very similar. They are not, Bernkastel is a manifestation of Rika's suffering and rage, from the multiple Groundhog Day Loops where Rika has died, that has been given form. The misconception is something that Bernkastel delights in.
  • Because she is a powerful witch, most Puella Magi treat her with extreme caution. Homura Akemi seems to take special offense to her existence, but why she does is something known only to the Herald. Bernkastel's existence is something that reminds Homura of the Witches of the Circle and what happened to Madoka prior to becoming a goddess.
    • It's been reported that Bernkastel giggled to herself after hearing about the "Great Upheaval". Some have wondered if she knew what would happen. Others have wondered if she wasn't involved somehow; the event was miraculous after all. Regardless, she has given an open invitation to Homura for a tea party. It remains to be seen what the response will be, if any.
  • Has attempted to pull a "Not So Different" Remark on Alpha and Epsilon, claiming that her origins are just like those of the Alpha's fragments, particularly Epsilon. Neither will have any of it, however, as they compare her to Gamma (who is also a troll who tortured them for his sick amusement).
  • Rumor has it that if she were to engage Vriska Serket in battle, the sheer amount of fortune manipulation would cause the universe to implode. This, obviously has not been confirmed.
  • Has been inducted to 'Trollkaiger', along with trolling friends Terumi, Izaya, and Handsome Jack. Bernkastel is awaiting the day the five will make a big, nefarious plot for them to laugh about while others suffer.
    • She Is trying to find a way to remove the "No Trolls Allowed" sign at the House of Commerce.
    • Her designation is "Trollkai Blue" and is the 2nd in command. She's now the leader of the group.
    • Little does Terumi know that she is actually plotting to usurp Termui's trolling portfolio. She claims to be the original "Arch-Troll", pulling similar acts and dramatic reveals of her true colors years before Terumi. She might have even been Arc Sys' inspiration for him. Unlike Terumi, Bernkastel also knows the existence of Nyarlathotep and has secretly struck a deal to watch Terumi's downfall with glee, together.
    • Recently, she got the title of Malicious Trolling from Terumi the day he got defeated by Hakumen, thus automatically becoming the leader of the Trollkaigers and demoting him as her second-in-command. But since Terumi is trying to recover his bad reputation, she prefers not to steal his prized title, instead sharing it. But until then, Bernkastel chose to enjoy the "Terumi humiliation show" that Nyarlathotep promised to her, at Terumi's expense.
    • Unfortunately Terumi turned the tables on Hakumen. Not only killing him but taking back the Susanoo unit in the process thus restoring his true power and getting deity rank increase as well. Despite this the two managed to work at a deal regarding the leadership of Trollkaiger, he assumes the leadership of the group again and all that comes with it and while she is Demoted to Dragon again with Izaya, she has more influence over group decisions than normal. Both are fine with this deal as long it doesn't cause a fracture within the group over leadership.
    • She's become a mentor for Nui Harime, Trollkaiger's latest addition. The fact that Nui shares the same voice as Rika Furude and Nanoha pleases Bernkastel and she hopes to help her student become an even bigger troll than she already is.
  • Bernkastel lost both her titles upon new evidence of something even more fitting: Metafiction. Given her world's deeply metafictional nature and Bernkastel herself being a metafiction deconstruction of the way authors treat their characters, it fit like a glove.
  • Despite their differences, the only time that you will EVER see Bernkastel and Rika ever get along is if there is any talk about Teppei Houjou.
  • Gets along disturbingly well with Vanitas. Many deities are very concerned by this.
  • For all of her shrewdness, the one guy she fears is Lord Tirek, given his habit to betray his allies. Just ask Discord.
    • The Witch of Miracles despite loving the despair that follows them around, is secretly terrified of Homura Akemi and Kiritsugu Emiya. This is due to witches of her world being very vulnerable to conventional firearms. That is IF you can hit them that is. Considering Homura and Kiritsugu's proficiency with mundane guns and the right form of magic to make that weakness work, Bernkastel is justifed in her fear.
  • Is loathed by Jason Todd, for Bernkastel's behaviour is too much like Joker to him.
  • If there is any redeeming trait to the Witch of Miracles, its that she loves the viewers. Given her nature, she expresses that love in twisted ways by giving them what she thinks they want, the suffering and misery of other characters in a story. She is fond of talking to the reader too through the fourth wall (to chilling effect). Although her advice is legitimately helpful to readers when it comes to solving mystery novels, beware, for Bernkastel is trying to corrupt the viewer to her way of thinking via the spread of heartless truth.
  • Due to her being a physical manifestation of centuries worth of despair, it should come as no surprise that the Witch of Miracles dispises Kibou Go and what they stand for. Her and Trollkaiger's attempt to crush the group during its infancy did not go well. It all unraveled when they dared to taunt Alexstraza about the sacrifices of her youngest consort, "Calen", and the circumstances behind the death of Valevastraz. It ended about as well as expected, resulting in a total party kill for the band of trolls. Seems the rumors Madoka heard about how terrifying the Dragon Queen is when enraged were proven true right in front of her. It was this very experience that caused Bernkastel to recruit Nefarian to Trollkaiger, seeking protection from the Life Binder.
    • Speaking of Nefarian, he was a very happy dragon when Bernkastel moved in to the same house as him. They've been spending time cruelly manipulating the 4th wall ever since.
  • Astral is disgusted with the Witch of Miracles due to her reminding him of Number 96.
  • Another girl named Frederica Bernkastel who looks much like this Bernkastel and also claims to be derived from Rika Furude has periodically appeared saying mysterious things. Some believe this may in fact be the Witch of Miracles herself at a younger point in time.

    The Chosen One and The Second Coming 

The Chosen One and The Second Coming, the Duo Gods of Exploiting the Fourth Wall (The Second Coming: The Chosen One's Return, Orange)

The Chosen One (top) and The Second Coming (bottom)
  • Greater Gods normally, can become full fledged Overdeities if they mess around with enough coding in any game (It Makes Sense in Context) or if The Second Coming is pushed that far
  • Symbol: Themselves. Alternatively, a fiery mouse cursor.
  • Theme Song:
  • Alignment:
  • Portfolio:
  • Domain(s): Computers, Fourth Walls, Fighting
  • Herald: The Fighting Stick Figures (Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow), and the Animator Alan Becker
  • Allies: Mario, The Pokemon Deities, Steve, Glitchy, The Author, Usami, Dexter, Sackboy, Daffy Duck, Deadpool
  • Conflicting Opinions: George And Bob
  • Fanboy of: The League Of Legends Deities (The Second Coming only)
  • Enemies: Herobrine (The Second Coming only), Silico, Missingno, Love Machine, Junko and Monokuma, The villainous digital avatars, Elmer Fudd
  • Uneasy with: Henry Stickmin (The Chosen One only), Bugs Bunny
  • Pities: All slaved deities (The Chosen One only)
  • The simplest things can be often deceiving. Once just a animation that some animator made to mess around with, The Chosen One quickly exhibited unmatched power and promise, being able to not only summon a array of powers, but also fighting back against his creator by use of breaking the fourth wall and using said wall to their advantage. This only end with them being caught and forced into a mere ad-blocker...until he freed himself, won against the Animator's last ditch effort against him by befriending the Dark Lord, and destroying the computer.
    • The story continues 3 years later when a NEW stick figure, the Second Coming, seemingly went under a similar battle after the Animator deleted his friends, only to find out that not only did the Animator underwent a Heel–Face Turn in regards to the stick figures, but also that the presumed dead stick figures could be revived by refreshing the webpage they were on. As such, the Second Coming befriended the Animator and helped him out animating stuff as long as he can be free.
  • What warranted their ascension was that one day the Second Coming and the Chosen One were jumping from website to website, only to find out that the Animator had left a certain site up; TV Tropes. After literally peeling the webpage to look behind them, they spotted the Pantheon itself in the distance. Trying to reach it by hopping from trope to trope, they ended up making their presence known by several tech savvy gods noticing stick figures hopping around on their computers. Turns out when they reached certain tropes, the Gods of those tropes saw them hopping around their computers.
    • For example, the first person to notice, Dexter, the god of Boy Geniuses, saw them on his computer when they hopped into the Child Prodigy page. Using his multiple monitors, he managed to corner them onto the Exploiting the Fourth Wall page, when the Second Coming managed to finally speak by typing in his words in the search bar. Opening up his notebook feature on the computer, he was able to converse with the stick figures and found out where they came from. Presenting his findings to the council of gods, as well as the stickmen on the council's separate computer screens, the two stickmen jumping between each of them to show that they are alive, the council decided to let them stay and gave them the title of Exploiting the Fourth Wall.
  • What's interesting about these deities is that unlike other computer-based deities that can be given a form that allows them to interact with members of the Pantheon, like Usami being downloaded onto robotic copies of herself, they are purely stuck on a computer. The closest anyone has gotten to getting them out is by downloading the Second Coming to a phone. As such, this makes them one of the few deities without a temple, as they just hop around from computer to computer thanks to the Pantheon's internet, and instead, they just decided to give the temple to their animator, Alan Becker. As long as they don't cause trouble, the gods are willing to let them stay.
    • Because they are stuck inside their computer, they are more than happy to find deities that are able to join them face to face. The duo were shocked to find Usami having stored her data within the Pantheon's internet. They became fast friends after the two stickmen heard about Junko and her evil Monokuma robots and declared their intent to find a way onto Junko's internet structure and mess with the coding in whatever machine is creating the Monokuma army.
      • While walking around from computer to computer, they found a green silhouette messing with some of the Pantheon's firewalls (which were literal firewalls to them). When they tried to approach him, the figure pressed a ESC button on a wireless keyboard and vanished from sight. Since that point on, the two cyber deities have their eyes out looking for him messing around again, while Silico has been taking precautions to be extra careful so he isn't found out.
  • The way they met is pretty strange: On a certain day, the Second Coming and the Animator were drawing something, until they found out that the computer has a virus called ViraBot. After a hardened fight, the Chosen One barely saved the Second Coming from being killed by the virus, and challenged it to a fight. After killing the virus, the Chosen One went on to destroy the creator of said virus: His once-friend, the Dark Lord, who had an entire army of ViraBots. After a hardened fight, the Second Coming's friends were dead, the Second Coming went through Body Horror and the Chosen One was too injured to stop the viruses... until the Second Coming got superpowers, destroyed the ViraBots and killed the Dark Lord. After reviving his friends and returning to his computer, the two crossed paths yet again when the Chosen One was going through the internet. Becoming fascinated with the others powers, the two quickly became friends, even more so when the Chosen One realised the Second Coming is described as "The Chosen One's return".
  • The Chosen One really regrets the seven years he spend causing chaos alongside the Dark Lord. Please don't mention it to him.
  • One of the few places they can interact with other deities freely is within the Grid. But even with that, as the two don't have actual voices, they can only communicate through text to other deities.
  • Due to being part of the victims attacked when the Chosen One and Dark Lord wrecked Newgrounds, Henry Stickmin is wary of the stickmen, despite The Chosen One's best efforts to assure him that he's beyond that behavior. He was even trying to stop the Dark Lord from going too far, and the Second Coming succeeded in doing it.
  • Finding the Stickmen on his laptop, Glitchy was esctatic to find that they made it onto his laptop and offered to teach them how to use movie editing software. However, considering the types of videos he makes, these just often confuse the duo, even if they appreciate the gesture.
    • The duo also get along with The Author, who was also able to befriend his own creations...or rather, just George, as Bob decided to become a full fledged Final Boss to fight against his own creator. As such, while the two stick figures were able to get on friendly terms with George, the same kindness isn't extended to Bob, who keeps finding these two stickmen messing with his computer.
  • Due to just how glitchy Missingno can be at times, the two stick figures are often called to try and reign in Missingno's code before it gets too chaotic for the Pantheon. Thanks to how experienced The Chosen One was in fighting against the Virabot that was beating the Second Coming and his friends without mercy, he has high success rates with these missions. Missingno views the two as annoyances and are looking to find way to permamently defeat them.
    • On the topic of viruses and bugs, the two stickmen are hired from time to time to deal and take care of any bugs that may damage computers, often rallying up any other avatars (like the icons for web browsers, paint brushes, ect.) to fight alongside them, although the Chosen One has been more successful.
  • Because of his past of being a slave of war against his fight with the animator, the Chosen One has taken up the fight of freeing enslaved deities stuck within the Pantheon, even if he is restricted to cyber space.
  • Being a sentient drawing on a computer, the two are able to enter and mess with other software, including video games. While the Second Coming does this more often, the Chosen One still went out of his way to befriend those that the Second Coming befriended.
  • Love Machine HATES these two, as they are not only formidable fighters willing to stop him with his plans for world conquest, but after the Second Coming found a purple stickman messing with the files for League of Legends, he has been able to not only use those same tricks to create a army of Second Comings with ridiculous stats taking the weapons from various champions within League of Legends for use in fights, but if The Second Coming was able to find Love Machine's files, he could theoretically delete EVERY power up Love Machine absorbed, and than some, including changing his morality, destroying his ability to absorb power from online avatars, and than some. As such, Love Machine tends to not stay on the same computer as them for a long period of time, and warned other villainous deities of their powers, plotting with them to one day permanently destroy them.
  • Deadpool was floored to find out that there are stickmen who are able to destory the fourth wall and weaponize it. As such, Deadpool and the stickmen talk to each other from time to time, trading tips on how they can demolish the fourth wall.
  • As they both were victims of malicious animators, they have forged an alliance with Daffy Duck, having gone through such torment before. As for Bugs, who was on BOTH ends of the spectrum, they just hope he learned his lesson, while they are planning on combating Elmer Fudd should he gain an interest in messing with them.

  • In many worlds that JRPGs inhabit, the stories that unravel within usually often use many common tropes seen between many of them with little fanfare given to them, brushed aside, or meekly justified to maintain the Refuge in Audacity of the plot. And there are the protagonists of Epic Battle Fantasy. Fighting monsters and big bosses with little much but their own lives to be concerned about, at least until the later games, these individuals go around exploiting RPG mechanics and tropes, nabbing whatever they can pick up, and pointing out whatever offputting or unusual occurrence pops up, knowing very well that there's nothing the world can do about it. At least that was they thought until the climax of their latest adventure where they learned that a mysterious Eldritch Abomination known as The Devourer, who was responsible for putting the party through their adventures, pulling them through a memory-wiping Sequel Reset, and being responsible for the creation of the previous two antagonists in their adventures for the sake of eliminating the party, ultimately slaying the Devourer and then freeing their universe from his manipulations, finally allowing them to settle down.
  • After learning of Fancy Pants Man's ascension, Matt decided to get his party to work towards getting into the Pantheon. Unusually deciding to make a plan that somehow impressed the rest of the party (surprising given his usual lack of intelligence), and after some fourth-wall breaking discussion they broke into the Pantheon by dropping into a very frantic battle between the Grand United Alliances of Good and Evil, where the fighting and commotion let them enter unnoticed, and decided to create a bombastic appearance by buffing each other up beforehand and using all their Limit Breaks at once, figuring out that being in the Pantheon would mean that they could defy some restrictions they would normally have to deal with in their games, which ended with a large amount of villains being taken out by their destructive abilities, and some heroes in the process. Making their presence in the Pantheon clear, the party realized the one fatal flaw in their plan: They didn't decide on what trope to get ascended for. Squabbling with each other while mentioning obvious tropes that hinted at their plan's flaws, from noting how their plan was working too well in the beginning, and how the rest of the party aside from Matt were holding the Idiot Ball for not being skeptical in Matt's plan, they were eventually subdued in the middle of their conversation and later sent to the Court of the Gods, where they were noted for not only their reputation as Heroic Neutral protagonists and how often they were Lampshade Hanging in the Pantheon. Seeing an opportunity, Natalie sarcastically commented that they hope they don't get to live with that trope, and while unsure if the judges saw past her sarcasm or not, it was decided that the whole party would be officially be part of the Pantheon, holding the tropes of Lampshade Hanging and Better Than a Bare Bulb.
    Matt: Is this the part where we go collect lampshades for the sake of putting them on every bulb we find?
    Natalie: No need to get Literal-Minded, Matt. I think we're already qualified to stay in the Pantheon.
  • The party's temple is the Grand Gallery from EBF5, under official ownership of Natalie due to completing all the achievements from their latest adventure. It also has a passage into the House of Gaming, it being their favorite place in the Pantheon to hang around in. Since they're from a timeline where they fulfilled 100% Completion and had optimal relationships with each other, the party is in their state from their Golden Ending, where they were all having joyful and fulfilling lives, Matt and Natalie finally becoming an official couple after 5 games to the cheers of the House of Love, Lance being a generally more decent person (selfish motivations aside), Natalie helping Anna form a garden center after getting through university, and Anna learning new swear words from Lance. Due to this, the party is trying to be more generally good than the former Heroic Neutral protagonists they were in the previous games, which solidified their position in the Grand United Alliance of Good, which was Natalie's idea to make sure their efforts to be better people wouldn't go to waste.
  • Some of the team's greatest feats that got them recognized as Greater Gods were their highly destructive Limit Breaks, defeating (or capturing) highly powerful bosses that could qualify as literal deities themselves, and most importantly, besting the Devourer, a horrific would-be-Overdeity that manipulated their universe in an attempt to create a "clockwork universe" with goals similar to those of YHVH's desires for complete order. Not even being deleted by the Devourer, who was able to instantly delete their entire planet, could stop them from besting the Devourer and reversing all of his manipulations upon their universe, including resetting their memories and effectively soft-rebooting their world.
    • This also caused the party to be recognized as enemies of the Grand United Alliance of Law, due to their ability to stand up against similar deities to the Devourer, and the whole party opposed to the very path of Law that the GUAL stood for, since they find them to be not so different from the Devourer. Similarly, they despise Darkseid and his Harbingers of Repression for similar reasons. The GUAL takes special watch of them due to their potential in taking down other Overdeities, and likewise Matt has attempted to taunt YHVH into fighting them, but YHVH only sends his minions and avatars to fight them, which usually bores them to the point of losing motivation. Their efforts to take down tyrants has gotten them in a friendly relationship with The Liberation Army, however.
  • Due to their series being an Affectionate Parody of JRPGs, especially Final Fantasy, they're overall friendly with a majority of protagonists of such games, even the Fire Emblem and Dragon Quest deities, and it was one of their other main motivations for joining Cosmos' Grand United Alliance of Good. While some are concerned about how blatant they were about committing some immoral actions like snatching items that can picked up in towns they visit or entering other NPCs' properties without permission, the Eight Travelers don't really mind them given their own reputation for similar actions. The same goes with Sam and Max, who find each others' company to be overall enjoyable if not rather chaotic when circumstances bring them together. Though sometimes Max and Nolegs get into squabbles over the pettiest things rarely. The same applies to Peacock who are delighted by each other for all the times they reference other works. The GUAG keeps an eye on the more morally questionable Lance (though trying to improve, if only to appeal to Natalie), who formerly had been the Big Bad of EBF2 trying to take over the world for the purpose to unite humanity, and then became a minor antagonist again in EBF5. The rest of the party has given the GUAG and other allied deities their permission to beat up Lance if he's causing excessive trouble and the others aren't around to stop him.
  • Knowing the party's potential for bringing about the downfall of YHVH and his Law, Lucifer attempted to persuade some of the party to become part of the Grand United Alliance of Chaos, but Natalie and Lance had no trust in Lucifer's words. Anna cared more about protecting nature, which would lead to a conflict of interest which the less nature-concerned members of the GUAC, and Matt chose to side with Natalie. As for Nolegs, he has shown neither a peculiar interest or disliking for the GUAC, and he only rummages through their stuff for food on occasion. Lucifer has decided that at the very least, they can at least be friendly to the cat, since antagonizing Nolegs would only worsen the party's view of the GUAC. Due to having opposition to both the GUAC and GUAL, tension sometimes occurs with certain protagonists who have leanings toward either side, though not to the extent of causing a fight unless something drastic happens.
  • The party has taken down evil, dark copies of themselves twice (excluding NoLegs), with the clones being different each time. The first time, their evil counterparts were dreary looking dark clones of themselves, and the second time, their counterparts were more personalized manifestations of their flaws taken a little too far. Nolegs being the exception, since Nolegs wasn't a party member until their latest adventure, and his counterpart in EBF5 was something else entirely. The party has managed to capture their evil counterparts in their latest adventure, which had gotten the attention of some of the Persona deities, seeing it like having their own Shadows become Personas directly. Yu Narakami tried to see if said counterparts could become Personas, but when Matt tried to do so with Matteus, the idea was given up on after Matteus ate through chunks of the House of Narrative, knowing that they were overall really hard to control or stop.
  • Knowing that until they defeated him the Devourer would keep resetting the happy endings (and all their equipment and experience as well) that they earned, as well as memories, they took pity and befriended Sora who suffered from something similar between his games. Similarly, they find the presence of Ouroboros to remind them a bit too much of the Devourer, even if their motivations differ, so they'll gladly work together with his enemies to deal with him. Lance also tends to unload his weaponry on Ouroboros' subordinate Airy since to Lance she's the type of Exposition Fairy that he can shoot at with no shame at all, as petty as it is.
  • Barbatos Goetia would attack NoLegs for his habits of stealing items from enemies and especially using them too. While the cat escaped, Barbatos attempted to pursue him only to be met with the entire party, who decided to challenge him in retaliation. Unfortunately for Barbatos, he underestimated them, and so he got beaten down by the party. To add insult to injury, they didn't use a single consumable item. And on Epic Mode, too. Barbatos has been constantly training since that encounter to get revenge for his humiliating defeat.
  • Due to the fact that there are monsters that are not essentially enemies, they'd have to pay extra attention to make sure they weren't going after prominent monsters that weren't just mooks, like Rusty and Co., who still try to avoid meeting them too often, and they have an especially rough relationship with much of the Undertale deities due to how much destruction and killing they've caused in the past. To the party's defense, their latest adventure enabled them to spare their foes or make them surrender, or capture them instead of killing them, though it's not the ideal case for the two sides. There's also how Snowflake, one of the party's summons, looks and acts like someone straight from their world, and Snowflake does get along with the other Undertale deities well, so the latter group can tolerate the party, but tolerance is as far as they'll go.
    • They're also not on good terms with Flame Princess given they once attacked her due to mistaking her for a Flame Sprite enemy, who all resemble her. Matt and Natalie also recall fighting Regirock and Regice, and the Regi Trio prefer to keep away from them knowing that they're nothing but trouble.
  • They've met the more prominent members of Team Dai-Gurren in past adventures somehow, and they got along knowing very well the power of a strong drill and the ability to believe in yourself, which Matt follows well. Natalie does also get along with Yoko since the former has worn the latter's iconic outfit in their quests. They're also familiar with Canti, who was a summon in Matt and Natalie's first adventure. Aside from mutual opposition to the Anti-Spiral, the House of Prophecy is highly worried about their alliance, given the tendency of Team Dai-Gurren to defy fate, and the Epic Battle Fantasy party to have over-the-top battles, foreseeing their House having a nightmare of a time dealing with whatever they stir up together sooner or later.
  • While they did break the fourth wall a bunch of times, they never seriously thought about the existence of the player of their games until near their last adventure where they started to try to communicate with said player with little results. Now that they remember everything, they can acknowledge that player, (Insert Name Here), with complete certainty that they exist. They know both how (Insert Name Here) was instrumental in the Devourer's downfall, as the latter has claimed, and all the decisions (good and bad) that the party does in battles. They also really don't like (Insert Name Here) for that time they forced the party to fight a mysterious and freaky sentient glitch that really traumatized them, which is also why they don't like to go near Missing No, even if that deity isn't as much of a threat. They do get along with the Chosen Four since (Insert Name Here) was just as important toward the defeat of Giygas as it was for the Devourer.
  • When it came to mechanics in their games, they were able to capture monsters by giving them lots of negative status effects and then trapping them in large boxes, which they have done with many enemies, monsters, and bosses, the latter group including actual gods. Many Pokemon deities, including the trainers, aren't sure what to think of them. Thankfully for the Pantheon, the party confirms that they cannot capture protagonist characters, a majority of Big Bad deities or any of the Grand United Alliance leaders, though if they really wanted to, they could capture other less prominent gods in the Pantheon, though the party is watched to ensure they don't do so for malicious or mischievous purpose. Despite these checks, Zamasu has been very paranoid of their presence.
    Zamasu: WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THE PANTHEON? With those freakish mortals running amok, it's only a matter of time until those mortals find a way to enslave all the gods to have them bend under their will!
    NoLegs, sneaking right behind him: Meeeow. *Ominous gestures implying that Zamasu will be next*
    • Caught offguard by Nolegs, Zamasu fled into his temple and did not come out for about a few days, to the worry of his allies. While having gotten better from that event, he's still frightened about the party's potential to capture the Kai, as extremely unlikely as it is.
  • Kazuma and his party feel pretty jealous of their presence, and they want to compete with them as rivals, but given their problems with teamwork and the questionable builds that Kazuma's party members generally have, they're currently irrelevant to Matt and his party. Trying to figure out a way to better themselves, Kazuma figured out something. First of all, NoLegs the cat is a prominent party member and Lovable Rogue of Matt's party, and secondly, the party lacks a proficient archer like Anna. Therefore, in order to become a more notorious party, they would have to train Megumin's cat, Chomusuke, to become an adventurer like Nolegs is, and somehow, make Chomusuke a ranger or archer. Since Chomusuke definitely can't use a regular bow, they've tried making Chomusuke use crossbows with little success, though they haven't stopped trying. All those suggesting to remove Chomusuke's limbs are appropriately beaten up by the party.
  • Due to how often the party kills monsters and animals for various reasons, especially Matt who has a reputation for eating them, their presence generally worries the House of Beast, and in particular the Hall of Dragons are not fond of how he used a dragon arm as a weapon. Matt's more surprised at the existence of dragons that aren't just heads with really long necks. The Hall of Felines especially distrusts the party given their reputation for killing cats (despite arguments of self-defense at times) in just about every game, whether as the usual cat soldiers, cats on mounts, a goddess of cats, or even a living cat shelter. Even NoLegs doesn't seem to have a problem with killing his own brethren, so their hairs are almost always raised when he's nearby. Lance is straight up banned from the Hall due to being known to hate cats. They trust Natalie the most out of the whole party since she was the most reluctant in participating in mass cat slaughter, for the most part. Evil-aligned felines don't even consider approaching them.
  • Due to the fact that Matt and Natalie have finally become an actual couple after all of their adventures, the House of Love considers it a score for them for another hero finally shedding the Oblivious to Love trope, and they've also paid extra attention to Lance who they keep an eye on for being a generally unlikable person and for wanting to have Natalie for himself, which the House's members are not planning to let happen.
  • They're friendly with the Adventurer Sect of Fancy Pants Man's temple the most since there are plenty of RPG characters from Web Games there. Fancy Pants Man has an overall positive but still tense relation with them due to their penchant for causing mass destruction much like many of the ascending deities from Newgrounds (Matt and Natalie originally came from a Web Animation on Newgrounds before being in Epic Battle Fantasy), but given that they're generally trying to be a little more moral in the Pantheon, he can be friendly with them should they meet up. The Blue Elephant is also a good friend of theirs given their pride of themselves as Flash game characters, and the Blue Elephant even joined the party in EBF5 as a "hat" for Natalie and Anna.
    • Due to how unsavory Lance's overall character can be, he of all the party gets along with other Newgrounds deities the most, finding good company in Pico and his friends, as well as the Tankmen, heralds of the former who were astounded by Lance's Neon Valkyrie tank, as well as Hank Wimbleton, to the point they occasionally work together to blast down some AAHW Grunts, and sometimes Tricky, who finds Lance to be an obstacle in the way with his feud against Hank.
  • With all the equipment and skills they have, the party can certainly deal with whatever the GUAE or other villains have to throw at them, given the variety of bosses and their strategies that they've dealt with before. Their overall efficiency at dealing with all the bad guys is still in some need of improvement, however.
    Anna: *figuratively knocks on Lord Chaos' temple door* Hey, Chaos! We still want to beat you up again! Are you up to the challenge? :D
    Lord Chaos: *counts his fingers while sighing* No.
    • It being the 8th time they bothered Chaos within 3 days after they actually stopped one of Lord Chaos' plots to oppose the GUAG, Cosmos had to personally intervene to ask them to focus on other villains for the time being.
  • On top of their summons being technically their heralds, another character often associated with the party, Phyrnna, also Author Avatar of the games' composer, can be found playing in the House of Music to the delight of its residents. Additionally, there are buckets of water housing Slime Bunnies that heal the party whenever they're not in battle, and for other RPG protagonists like them. The GUAE Trollkaiger tried to torture one, but after hurting it for a while, it countered with Genesis, blasting the group with intense holy magic.
  • Sometimes, the party can be seen flying around with the Touhou Project deities, with Matt on a floating sword, Natalie using magic wings, Lance riding a small gunship, Anna on a giant leaf, and NoLegs on a star akin to Kirby's Warp Star, the latter sometimes hanging around with Kirby as a result.

  • Exclusive to Matt:
    • As far as we know when it comes to a backstory, Matt was apparently raised by his two sailor parents who decided to leave him to grow up on land since the sea was too dangerous for him. He's not sure of their fate but has accepted the possibility that they're long gone. At the very least, given his usual pirate attire, he decided that being friends with the Straw Hat Pirates would be a great idea for him, which it obviously was given their mutual love for adventure. He especially finds Luffy himself to be an enjoyable eating buddy, except whenever they fight over meat, which is actually somewhat often.
    • Naturally got along with the GUAG Sacred Knights, especially its leader Artix since both him and Matt originate from Web Games themselves. They're also interested in one of Matt's Limit Breaks, Ragnarok, which causes giant versions of all of Matt's swords to rain down on the opposing party, an impressive skill that the Sacred Knights could utilize by lending Matt their swords and empower said ability in the process.
    • Matt's reputation for grabbing nearly every valuable item that isn't chained down hasn't escaped the Pantheon, and the deities within the House of Swords have been extra cautious when Matt is around. However, for the more prominent swordsmen willing to put up with him, Matt will instead challenge them to sword duels for fun, having done so with Kenpachi, Zoro, and Erza so far. For getting swords from villains, Matt has tried to get his hands on Masamune, under the ownership of Sephiroth, by defeating the latter in a solo fight. It hasn't gone well so far, but Matt's determination is still high.
      • He's also gone after the swords owned by Final Fantasy's Gilgamesh, as well as Fate's Gilgamesh, which usually ends in a rough fight between them and Matt. The former admires his rivalry with Matt as a fellow sword collector, but the latter finds Matt to be a nuisance overall, though definitely not a pushover.
    • Having fought Goku multiple times before, including one time as an evil zombie version of himself, he's started a Friendly Rivalry with Goku when it comes to eating or fighting. Matt decided to also start a showdown-style duel with Goku like they did in a past game called Brawl Royale, with Matt preparing a really powerful sword slash and Goku preparing a Spirit Bomb. The result was a third of the House of Power being destroyed, so Matt and Goku are no longer allowed to have duels near the Pantheon temples and dominions for safety.
    • Found great adventuring buddies in both Fighter and Leroy Jenkins, all three of them being more than worthy of the title of Idiot Hero, and Matt understanding Fighter's love for swords and Leeroy's love for running into battle head-on. The Pantheon does try to minimize the frequency or duration of their meetings, since whatever adventure or quest they get into together, disaster is bound to occur. If they enter a dungeon, they'll either get themselves killed in dumb ways, fall flat when encountering a difficult puzzle, or destroy the entire dungeon altogether.
    • Gets along with Link due to the fact they have overall fun adventures when traveling together, as well as their teamwork making Dungeon Crawling much more enjoyable, with Link handling many of the puzzles and Matt doing much of the hitting, especially on what would be annoying enemies. Matt doesn't bother trying to nab the Master Sword since it doesn't deem him to be a worthy wielder, so he's settled with finding some replica in its place. Link eventually came to truly appreciate Matt's assistance when a stray arrow of his hit a Cucco, angering a swarm of them nearby. This would have ruined his day had Matt not suddenly jumped in and slashed at a bunch of attacking Cucco, causing them to attack him instead of Link. Link managed to escape to a safer area nearby as the Cuccos dogpiled Matt until he was downed. Link eventually came back to check on Matt, who managed to recover from the attack. Giving Matt a thank-you gesture for his brave act, they decided to head back to their temples after the exhausting excursion.
      Matt: Thank goodness for my thick skull! You know, it's a good thing I brought my sword Inferno along! *munches on some fried Cucco wings*
    • Matt managed to visit the infamous Excalibur within the Hall of Anger, and didn't seem to have a single problem with tolerating all of his annoying shenanigans. Taking Excalibur back to his own temple, and managed to use Excalibur effectively, but Excalibur's presence was so irritating to the rest of the party that Matt was forced to go and put him back. There's also Soul Calibur who deems Matt a worthy wielder since Matt lacks natural Dark skills. But being warned about the weapon, he knows better than to try anything with Soul Calibur.
    • Once tried to sneak into Doom Slayer's temple to snatch the owner's famous Crucible sword, since Doom Slayer was out to hunt other demons. However, Doom Slayer's own personal enemies had also planned to take advantage of Doom Slayer's absence at the time with the purpose of sabotaging the place, and also stealing the Crucible. Unfortunately for the demons, Matt obtained the sword first, tanking through everything the demons threw at him to do so. Once he got it, he proceeded to use the Crucible with all his swordmanship skills to thrash through all the demons with little struggle. Doom Slayer arrived back early upon being alerted of the demons' sabotage only to find the corpses of demons lying about and Matt attempting to cook and eat some of the non-humanoid demons. While Matt was forced to give the Crucible back and leave, the Doom Slayer can see in Matt a very worthy wielder for the Crucible should fate need him to put the Crucible in someone else's hands.
    • When it comes to other deities the Pantheon is mostly fine with him trying to eat, he tends to ambush or chase Napoleon for the purpose of turning him into bacon, whenever Napoleon is outside the House of Beasts. Due to Napoleon's atrocious actions and his allegiances with the likes of Darkseid and Big Brother, even the other animals don't really mind Matt trying to make a meal out of the pig. Since he shares this tendency with Eli Bacon, the two were bound to be huge friends, and Matt has enjoyed being Eli's disciple in Pig Wrestling and most of all, enjoying some good bacon. Eventually, Eli would mention Tuska at one point, and given the creature's reputation for destruction, Matt decided that no one would really mind them trying to kill a giant planet-destroying boar. Getting the whole team together, they engaged Tuska, and since Matt hardly relies on magic to get things done, Tuska would get done in by Matt's Cleaver Limit Break. To both his and Eli's disappointment, one could not make bacon from Tuska, whose meat became inedible.
      Anna: You know, I don't think the Nature Preservers would take us eating Anima Mundi infused bacon too well. I guess it's lucky we don't have to deal with those consequences.
    • His Shadow Archetype is Matteus, an Extreme Omnivore Golem who retains Matt's ceaseless hunger, but amplified. After defeating Matteus, Matt has taken some measures to restrain himself from eating beasts and animals that wouldn't be approved by the Pantheon, and opposing villainous gluttons like Midora or Gluttony. However, being friends with the Monster Hunters means he has some way to control his gluttonous desire, even if it's just focusing them on Acceptable Targets. Not only does he hang out with the Monster Hunters to cook meat from their bounties, but he's also been crafting swords from each monster he can possibly make a weapon from, just like the other Monster Hunters.

  • Exclusive to Natalie:
    • After ascending into the Pantheon, despite having passed university in her world, she figured it would be wise to learn more at the House of Magic, since it wouldn't hurt to learn more. Hermione and Diane Cavendish have been her two most reliable friends in getting used to the place, and Akko's trying her best.
    • Originally being an unnamed white mage in the days of being in Newgrounds animations, she finds the White Mage in the Pantheon to be a good buddy when it comes to discussions about their absurd adventures, with Natalie being impressed by some of White Mage's feats, and likewise White Mage respecting Natalie's usage of black magic for the greater good.
    • Natalie managed to befriend many within the GUAG Magical Girl Sisterhood, enjoying more mundane activities together, and although she does have the proper equipment to be one, she's fine with just being their friend. She's also rather sad about what happened to Madoka in the Great Upheaval, and thinks that what Homura did to her sounds a bit too much like something that Lance would do. Excluding comparisons involving guns and artillery, you really don't want to be compared to Lance. She doesn't like the Incubators either, seeing past their cute appearance, and has let the rest of her party be willing to attack them as they like.
    • While Natalie initially thought herself to like nature, it turned out that she primarily likes the cute creatures, and given her bad experience with icky critters and the gross parts of jungles, she also deems it appropriate to greet Audrey II, who reminds her too much of the monstrous Rafflesia of the Lankyroot Jungle, with a lot of fire and other unpleasant forms of magic.
    • Natz doesn't really enjoy her reputation for being the fanservice girl of the group, and notes to everyone in the Pantheon that her stripping down in her Limit Break is just a projection of her, since she would never think of actually doing such a thing herself, and she doesn't appreciate what Slaanesh represents either. That said, a once sour meeting with Mai who initially tried to encourage Natz to be more proud of her attractiveness went into expressing sympathy for Mai's attempts to get into a relationship with Andy Bogard, and Mai teaching Natalie some tricks to deal with unwanted perverts (and Lance).
    • Has the most negative opinions on (Insert Name Here) because in every adventure they keep pressing on her chest to invoke Gainaxing, and it doesn't help that said action is tied to an achievement in her later appearances either. It has yet to happen to her in the Pantheon, but if her breasts start to jiggle out of nowhere, she can immediately tell that (Insert Name Here) is present.
    • While she has yet to even be lewded by ZONE, she greatly dislikes ZONE's creations since Natalie had dealt with a few incidents with a tentacled Beholder too many, and has tried her best to avoid ZONE's attention. ZONE hasn't paid enough attention to Natalie nor has been in the mood to lewd her ever since Natalie had entered the Pantheon- yet. Similarly, knowing that Shuma Gorath can take on a smaller form to match against certain fighters has put her at odds with the Lord of Chaos. She is somewhat friendly with Koro-sensei but notes that if he tries to get indecent around her or especially towards her, she'll use a Black Hole Limit Break right on him.
    • Natalie's Evil Player counterpart is known as Natalia, a warped Knight Templar priestess (some suspect Natalia to be some undead or a homunculus) that has her sights set on purging everything tainted with sin. Due to her fears of becoming like Natalia, she greatly opposes the GUAL Templar Order. And due to Bayonetta's reputation for dealing with both nasty angels and demons, Natalie thought it best to get along with Bayonetta, even if she finds her attitude in battle a little uneasy to be around.

  • Exclusive to Lance:
    • Ever since his last adventure in EBF5, Lance has been slowly trying to improve his morality, to the frustration of the GUAE. However, many of the villains attempting to bring him back to the dark side have been responded with not force, but annoying rants and speeches about the flaws of the villains attempting to persuade him. There hasn't been anyone patient to deal with Lance, and usually it ends with Lance launching explosives and tanks in their way if they start to actually fight him. Much of the villains that thought they could bring Lance back to genuine villainy now simply want to stomp all over him.
    • For some reason, Lance is occasionally spotted entering the temple of Dio Brando, which gets followed up by screams of "WRRRYYYYYYYYY" and the cacophonous carnage of vehicles getting smashed into the ground and then destroyed. No one bothers trying to interrupt them unless they want to be on the receiving end of all of the destruction and carnage there.
    • Currently setting up a new fortress for his robots though not for any sinister purposes this time, he claims, but for competing with other renowned villains for their robot armies, specifically both Eggman and Wily. While the two scientists currently aren't too concerned about Lance for now, they have heard about another tank Lance created known as Neon Valhalla, which went haywire and floats below Lance's fortress, infamous for having a variety of elemental nukes and its absurd health regeneration, making it a nasty tank for those that Lance unleashes it upon.
    • Once plotted some schemes that would involve framing Matt to make Natalie split away from him before, but looking at what happened to another heroic knight, Oersted, who is now in the Pantheon as Odio, Lance decided that such ideas were better off abandoned, though he has wondered about Odio's situation.
      Lance: So that Odio guy, he became a demon since the setting he came from was the generic medieval fantasy with demon overlords and all. But say it was somehow me in my Iron Fortress somehow going through a similar process, what would I become?
      Lance: Yeah, I'll pass.
      Matt: What?
    • Due to his plans to turn some of the women he captured before the events of EBF5 into breeding slaves for the sake of raising more soldiers for what he expected to be a future alien invasion (which he wasn't entirely wrong about), he's had zero respect from goddesses like Boa Hancock and Tenko Chibashira who are completely against such actions, and while he hasn't even thought about trying such things again in the Pantheon, they'll be the first to come after him should he do so. The God-Emperor of Mankind doesn't condone much of his more morally questionable actions either, but believes Lance to be a victim of bad circumstances and noting that he did correctly predict the presence of a powerful Eldritch Abomination that was manipulating his world, even if it was for the wrong reasons, and as unsavory as Lance is, his actions would be more justified in a much harsher world. Believing that Lance's abilities could make him a great asset against the Chaos Gods, the God-Emperor is assisting in helping Lance reform towards being genuinely good.
    • Declared himself an enemy of all the Nazis in the Pantheon, noting that his former ways may have been considered fascist, noting that the swastika he wore in past outfits was a Buddhist swastika, and therefore a symbol of peace, and also disagreeing with some of the more extreme ideals of said Nazis. That said, given Lance's own share of problems and his reputation as a Politically Incorrect Villain, dedicated Nazi opposers don't like Lance too much either. That said, it has gotten him on more friendly terms with the Medic.
      • In general, Lance gets along with the RED Team in general for one reason or another due to Lance's questionable morality and tolerance for the mercenaries' behavior, and experience with their primary forms of weaponry. They also like to trade hats, the mercenaries just like to try some of Lance's hats on (only done if the rest of the team is fine with doing so), and Lance, on top of giving them scrap metal occasionally, also borrows some of their hats since they give bonuses to him like the hats in his game do. He still keeps an eye out for the Spy in case he decides to sap Lance's machines or put a knife into Lance's back for whatever reason.
    • Lance's troubling childhood with a horribly abusive dad and a Missing Mom has earned the Child Abuse Supporters his wrath, and he claims that the GUAG wouldn't mind a bit of carpet bombing upon them every once in a while. Lance has also stated his interest in making a lion pelt out of Scar, and unfortunately for him, his fellow bestial allies have no plans to stand between him and Lance, due to immensely high risks of getting scorched alive with a flamethrower or receiving a bullet to the head. The Child Abuse Supporters stay very far away from him knowing that he's the Token Evil Teammate of the party for a good reason.
      • Despite how terrible of a father he was, Lance was still sad when his father had died in what was implied to be an incident involving a Creeper explosion, so he got along with Steve and Alex, even giving them some of his supplies from time to time. Likewise, he has met every Creeper within range with deadly force, and also opposes the Wither due to its much greater destructive abilities.
    • Lance's evil counterpart that he can summon to battle is Lancelot, a robotic clone that acts purely on warped logic and efficiency, and turning organics into raw materials. Desiring to not become something like Lancelot, he has a personal issue with the GUAM's goals of machine supremacy, and is working with their opposers to ensure that the Grand United Alliance of Machines doesn't overstep their boundaries, being well experienced with technology himself. The leaders of the GUAM consider Lance to be quite the threat inside due to Lance's abilities to cause mass destruction against them, from his nukes to being able to blast them with a laser from a large satellite in space.
  • Exclusive to Anna:
    • The archer and naturalist of the party, Anna found the Grand United Alliance of Nature to be inviting, and decided that it wouldn't be a bad idea to be a part of both the GUAG and the GUAN at the same time. Given her devotion to nature and protecting it, she was welcomed into the alliance by Gaea pretty quickly, and also became friends of other protectors of nature, even Viridi who disliked other humans, with her reason in particular being that Anna's Mighty Oak companion was just really impressive to her.
      Viridi: You know, your Mighty Oak friend would be more than fit to be part of my Forces of Nature! What's the story behind your big buddy?
      Anna: I'm not too big on history, but our village considers it a great protector, even if we're unsure of how it got access to its metal attachments. Since I was the most active ranger, I guess it trusts me to utilize its power the most. But what I certainly know is that Mighty Oak is proficient at pummeling whatever invader dares to threaten nature!
      Viridi: That's what I like to hear! You better treat it well!
    • Deemed it a priority to get along with Hawkeye given their mastery at archery, and they both know well the fact that bows aren't for weaklings that can't handle close combat, understanding well the rigorous training and strength needed to handle bows, especially the bigger ones that Anna uses. She's also intrigued by Usopp and his use of Pop Greens in his sniping, wanting to try to learn to use such natural weaponry herself, so she's currently learning from him, and in the process, also being pulled in by Usopp's tall tales of himself which Anna gullibly believes in.
    • Given her affinity with the House of Nature, Anna quickly found enemies with Mr. Burns who she found to somehow despise nature more than Lance, and Hexxus who's living pollution, though that's nothing wind and holy magic can't deal with. Additionally, she dislikes Colonel Quaritch due to being reminded of the time when her village was under attack by Lance's forces once, except Quaritch can be a more active threat.
    • Took pity on Mustache Girl who has problems with the Mafia of Cooks taking over her home, and considering her problems with defending her village from Lance's troops once, she cooperates with Mustache Girl to deal with her enemies when they attempt to trouble her, though she definitely does not condone her attempt to rule her world with an iron fist. Mustache Girl is willing to accept her help, considering Anna's opposition to the Mafia of Cooks more valuable than the temptation of tyrannical power.
    • Due to how similar they look, and Anna's friendliness toward nature, Yotsuba considers Anna to be sort of a Cool Big Sis to look upon, and whenever Anna isn't adventuring, Anna shows Yotsuba all the wonders of nature that she's allowed to. This is only when Anna is alone or maybe with just NoLegs or Natalie, since the Pantheon doesn't want to invite the potential trouble that the whole party can bring. Anna is also not allowed to use a single swear word learned from Lance near her at all.
    • Anna has gotten along well with Lina Inverse, Noel Vermillion, and even Etna due to their shared A-Cup Angst. Occasionally, Anna meets up with the three of them so they can all give their prayers for bigger breasts in secret. Even Etna eventually got into it when Anna told her that they don't necessarily have to pray to the same goddess, let alone one unsuitable for demons.
    • Anna also has a minor reputation for having attractions to big-breasted women, as subtle as they are. It's a secret to about everyone else in the Pantheon, even her own party and allies, but she personally asked Katsuragi about being able to touch her breasts in private. While initially embarassed about the subject, and really not wanting to, despite considering how often she would grope other girls' breasts, she very reluctantly accepted since Anna was nice enough to open up and ask politely. But once that was said and done, Anna was quickly kicked into the sky by Katsuragi out of pure embarassment.
    • For Anna, the Evil Player counterpart opposing her was Annabelle, an Ax-Crazy demonic huntress that actively sought to hunt people for entertainment. Worried that other people may see her as something similar, she opposes the war-loving Khorne and his allies, as well as many of the malicious demons in the Pantheon. She also takes opposition to some of the more malicious hunters in the Pantheon, especially Eredin and Pokemon Hunter J. She's fine with showing some respect toward Artemis for being a more responsible hunting deity, on the other hand.

  • Exclusive to NoLegs:
    • Obviously, NoLegs does not have legs, nor arms. This is since Godcat, who created all catkind in his universe, stripped every cat of their limbs since her feline creations decided to become subservient to humanity, which disappointed Godcat greatly. There was a cat with visible limbs known as Meow Meow but the whole party doesn't seem to know who that cat was.
    • Little known to any of the Pantheon deities is that Nolegs' true origins are in an innocently-named Flash game known as Kitten Game, where the player shoots the heads off of many cats that look just like Nolegs, which may be the reason that Nolegs stays away from the Hall of Firearms and the Hall of Aim & Skill where people could be aiming at his head from afar.
    • With NoLegs' penchant for fancily stabbing things or using rains of stars to attack things, or bring in help from fellow Web Games character Sushi Cat, the cat got along with The Monkeys since they both found much fun in popping bloons, with Nolegs making quick work of even the toughest zeppelins among the bloons.
    • Both having pretty bad experiences with cats, both Utonium and Nibbler distrust cats in general, and while Nolegs isn't really evil, he's indeed rather mischievious and chaotic, and doesn't really care about what they think of cats, rummaging through things in their temples and occasionally stealing stuff, so neither are fond of him. Nolegs has done the same with Yosemite Sam, who considers the cat to be just as troublesome as Bugs Bunny, and has tried to either trap, capture, or shoot the cat with no success, with Nolegs occasionally attacking Sam back given the opportunity.
    • His two Limit Breaks are summoning either the Creator or the Destroyer, the Big Bad Duumvirate of EBF4 that previously tried to destroy the world since humanity became more prevalent in their world than cats. They too were just part of the Devourer's machinations to get rid of the party, and befriended NoLegs after the party proved the world worthy of being spared, which would lead to the cat having a creator deity and destroyer deity as his companions, which Dizzy of all people found to be both relatable and in a sense, adorable.
    • Nana considers Nolegs to be a very bad kitty, with his "owners" being rather irresponsible, and also finds the cat to be more dangerous than Alex the Lion since Nolegs can somehow use weapons without the need of limbs, which still baffles her. While every encounter they have always results in a nasty fight between them, they can agree that Rusty's horrible actions toward his own Pokemon are even worse, and sometimes work together on certain occasions to give Rusty a taste of justice.
    • The cat will sometimes visit the Katawa Girls' temple where he finds himself getting pet, rubbed, and fed by the deities there who all find him adorable, especially Emi and Rin. Always going around to scavenge for free food and items, this is exactly what Nolegs was planning for all along. When not in the House of Food to find yummy leftovers, he'll be looking through trash and vacant areas to look for interesting stuff to take whenever the party isn't out adventuring. Finding the cat to be relatable, being a Kleptomaniac Hero herself, and cuddly, she throws a few shiny things or food to NoLegs when the rest of the party isn't around. The same goes with Selina Kyle who also is fond of cats in general.
    • The "Evil Player" counterpart of NoLegs is a cat known as "God", with a hammer similar to Hammer Kirby's and a Super Saiyan form. God is an actual benevolent deity of their home universe, but unable to deal with the Devourer. Out of all the evil counterparts of the party, God was the one that managed to qualify as a Persona for NoLegs, given that the other counterparts are far more unhinged and deadly to everyone. Many of the GUAC have been amused by the irony of one of YHVH's enemies having connections with such powerful divine entities. Some even joked that NoLegs would be a far more suitable leader for the GUAL than YHVH himself, offending the latter with the idea of a mortal, limbless cat being superior to him in any significant aspect.

  • Pitied by: Monika
  • Complicated Relationships: (Insert Name Here)
  • It's hard to explain what White Face is. They are an entity that's known to stalk whoever they set their sights on and has more often than not caused numerous errors and glitches in his game. It's unknown whether White Face is an AI who was programmed for a simple game and Grew Beyond Their Programming or a character who became aware of their surroundings and just wanted to make friends.
  • White Face is very playful and friendly who anyone they come across, but their ideas of "games" usually end up with someone dead or terribly hurt. There is a hint of sadism in their intentions, so many try to stay as far away as possible.
    • For example, they have a tendency to bring the chair and noose to a random house in a dark room and bring some unlucky god along. Which sometimes ends in White Face challenging to escape and the poor deity having no choice but to hang themselves.
  • He is rather angry with "Insert Name Here". According to White Face, they are responsible for killing them by destroying their heart and essentially deleting White Face from the game. The former tries their best to forget about all of the games White Face forced them to go through.
  • Good friends with Spooky, after all she allowed them to be part of her mansion's many specimens that terrorize unlucky visitors. Sometimes White Face gets a little out of hand and takes over control from Spooky, but she is perfectly fine with that.
  • White Face can sometimes mess up with the computer of whoever downloaded their game, often kicking out the player out of the game and directly taunting them by sending youtube links. Their control over the Fourth Wall is remarkable, impressing Deadpool himself.
  • With how dangerous their control over computers can get, White Face has been preemptively banned from the House of Technology in hopes of keeping them away from messing up the mainframe and the digital world. They also have been targeted by numerous people specialized in taking down viruses (for the sake of simplicity, White Face has been labelled as a computer virus) like Lan Hikari and Megaman.EXE, TRON, the Lyoko Warrior, Kirito and Asuna, etc.
    • Didn't help matters that White Face is in really good terms with Love Machine, who they like to spend time messing around.
  • There are things that do really frighten White Face and that is being left alone without anyone to play. Oddly enough, he wasn't the only one that felt this way as he got to meet Monika and Flowey, who felt exactly the same in their own world. White Face related with Monika on the sense that they were obsessed with the player character and tried anything to keep them with them forever, but ultimately they both were deleted from the game because of that. Flowey more or less appreciates the creepy factor and how White Face likes to hurt people that come across to them, thinking that they would be a really scary monster.
    • This inevitably came to a head when Frisk approached White Face. At first, It was keen on "playing" with them like everyone else until the child presented them a flower. Their expression lightened into a true smile as they thanked the child for their kindness before sending them on their way.
  • It's debatable whether White Face can be considered a fictional character who gained sentience, a computer virus or a rogue AI. In any case, the SCP Foundation has set their eyes on containing them and studying the reasons they can seemlessly corrupt and warp any computer. It didn't help that apparently SCP-633 has taken a liking to White Face and has tried to contact them, seeing them as a kindred spirit.
  • Sometimes they can be spotted in the House of Friendship when they are feeling playful. The resident gods try their best to avoid them, but sometimes one unlucky soul ends up playing tag with White Face (And it isn't a nice experience).
  • Their real gender is unknown, but his regular form makes most people believe they are male. However, the existence of HER, another entity that is closely related to White Face and could possibly be part of them is female, making things harder to comprehend.

    Xingo 
Xingo, God of Fictional Characters Coming to Reality
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/xingo_the_character_4.png
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: The Xingo Show title card
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, with shades of Blue-and-Orange Morality
  • Portfolio: A Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal wearing White Gloves, a Nigh-Invulnerable, seemingly limitless shapeshifter who operates entirely on cartoon logic and can pull any object out of thin air, Type 2 omnipotent, a screwy and very powerful trickster who escaped from the TV
  • Domains: Cartoons, Trickery
  • Allies: Lucifer, Mister Mxyzptlk, Discord, Peacock, Screwy Squirrel, Sheogorath
  • Enemies: Judge Doom, Daring Do
  • Opposed By: Ben and Gwen Tennyson
  • Opposes: Bill Cipher
  • For years, Ben and Gwen thought they had heard the last of Xingo. That is, until he finally ended up catching up with them in the Pantheon. As it turns out, the only thing that could get Xingo to come out of the TV again was an offer of godhood from Lucifer himself. Lucifer seemed to think that Xingo's antics and sheer power would be more than beneficial to his cause. Some of Lucifer's ideals feel iffy to him, though, so he became a part of the Chaos Brigade instead of serving him directly. He and Lucifer still keep in touch, though, mostly because Lucifer lets him do whatever he wants. That's always a plus for Xingo.
  • Xingo first came into being when Ben Tennyson was still only ten years old. Ben, Gwen, and Max were on a trip to the Grand Canyon when the TV started acting up. Frustrated at missing the Xingo Show marathon, Ben went Upgrade to fix it. When lightning struck the satellite dish, Xingo himself popped out of the TV.
    • Despite being brought into the "normal" reality, Xingo still operated entirely on cartoon logic. He was nigh-invulnerable, capable of seemingly unlimited shapeshifting, capable of pulling any object out of thin air, and was pretty much omnipotent. Not only that, but he loved pulling "pranks," and was completely incapable of distinguishing between what is harmless fun and actually harmful.
    • In niche circumstances, Xingo is actually capable of temporarily transferring his power to others. Presumably, this happened when lightning struck Ben as he was holding Xingo. This is what ultimately allowed Ben to defeat him. Frustrated and scared straight, Xingo retreated back into the TV. To this day, Ben maintains that he is no longer a fan of Xingo or his show. Gwen, however, was never a fan of it to begin with.
  • Xingo is practically the living embodiment of everything Judge Doom hates, being a wacky toon with nearly unlimited power to boot. The sentiment is definitely mutual. Xingo considers Judge Doom to be a massive hypocrite. He also greatly fears the Dip, believing it to be one of the few things that can truly defeat him.
  • Xingo and Mister Mxyzptlk have become fairly good friends, but it seems that a lot of that has to do with Mister Mxyzptlk just watching him to be sure that he doesn't take things too far with his antics. Whenever Xingo's with his partner in crime, Screwy Squirrel, his pranks are even more of a concern for Mxyzptlk.
    • Discord seems to be close to Xingo for similar reasons. While he isn't exactly tamed, though, he is reformed. As such, even though Discord is impressed with Xingo's power, it's still important to him that he doesn't kill anyone with it.
    • Similarly, Peacock seems to be pretty fond of Xingo. They're both toony and she thinks his wacky antics are funny... most of the time. Sometimes he can go a bit too far.
  • Xingo's apparent dislike for Bill Cipher is nothing short of dumbfounding for most deities. Even Xingo thinks that Bill Cipher takes things too far, and that he would never deliberately try to kill someone, even though he almost kills people himself all the time. The key word here is deliberately, though. Xingo just frequently forgets that actions that are completely harmless in his home reality can actually kill people in this reality.
  • Xingo's species has become a matter of debate amongst the Pantheon. Some deities think he's a fox, but others argue that the name "Xingo" is close to "dingo," so he must be a dingo. Xingo's response? "I'm just a Xingo!"
  • "HERE'S XINGO!"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chowder_1.png
Back to front:Truffles, Shnitzel, Chowder, and Mung Daal.
  • Demigod (Mung). Lesser God (Chowder normally, though can get higher depending on the situation). Intermediate Gods (Schnitzel due to his strength and Truffles can become a Greater Goddess when angered enough).
  • Symbol: The Mung Daal Catering building
  • Theme Song: You know the song already...
  • Alignment: Mung and Chowder are Neutral Good with Chaotic Good tendencies. Truffles is supposed to be Lawful Neutral but has very Chaotic Neutral methods. Shnitzel is True Neutral.
  • High Priest: Neddie Seagoon
  • Followers: Rentaro Aijou, Dark Helmet, Rock Ridge Residents, Sheep in the Big City, Gerbert
  • Portfolio: Amazing Technicolor Population, City of Adventure, Breaking the Fourth Wall, Medium Awareness, Theme Naming, Widget Series
  • Domains: Food, Fourth Wall, Humor, Chaos
  • Herald: Kimchi (Chowder’s pet)
  • Allies: Toriko and Komatsu, Cabbage Merchant, Sanji, Remy, Max Tennyson, Deadpool, Gumball Watterson, The Eds
  • Rivals: Yosemite Sam (Mung)
  • Enemies: Midora, Deviljho, Starjun, Lord Fuse, Montgomery Burns, Tsumugi Shirogane, The Kankers
  • Opposed by: Century King Shadow Moon, Solaire (Mung), Monika (DDLC)
  • There is a fine line that separates a works of fiction of being aware that they are fiction, which is the Fourth Wall. However, what happens when that wall were to not exist in the first place? This is how the world revolves around the city of Marzipan, a city being essentially aware that they are in a cartoon. Likely the most infamous establishment of Marzipan is Mung Daal Catering, serving and delivering the various delicacies they cook while Hilarity Ensues. The four that made up the establishment managed to ascend to the Pantheon and yes, they are aware that they are in a webpage that sweaty nerds came up with out of boredom. Not that they mind since the company has a chance to get more customers.
  • No, they aren’t bothered by the fact they aren’t real. Their creator has literally shown up multiple times to them, they have poked fun of the floating CN logo, and are aware that most events of their lives span around eleven minutes. They would rather have not that fact impede them from their usual work. Tsumugi Shirogane can be heard screaming in the background, yelling that their casual demeanor should be an existential crisis filled with despair. Even Monika is quite appalled by their lack of the care from the fact that they aren’t real.
  • The cuisine they serve are... alien needless to say. A food that they have is literally called Purple Nurples, so that’s an indicator of what they’re cooking (sometimes, said food is sentient). Though many would find their food convulsive, Mung Daal Catering has managed to win out several deities’ odd tastebuds that could stomach these foods. And those who did try the food (namely professional chefs who’re willing to find something new) were pleasantly surprised at what they ate.
  • Their presence here takes place before Chowder screams straight until adulthood, inheriting the restaurant after maturing. Likely a few strings were pulled so that nobody would have to hear Chowder scream for that long.
  • Had a harder time adjusting to the more usual foods the Pantheon employs. They had Toriko, Komatsu, Sanji, and Max Tennyson help them try to learn how to cook these foods, especially the last one as Max is an expert on alien cuisine.
  • Thanks to cartoon physics and these Fourth Wall Breaking instances, they can do things like tearing off the entire background to clean it or force the camera to zoom in on them. Shnitzel usual does this since he’s the strongest of them. So in a way, they can threaten the entire reality of the Pantheon if they wanted to. But they would never do something like that... intentionally. They once nearly ended their show by wasting the budget, so one can pray they do not do something that makes the higher beings in charge nuke the place.
  • Get along well with Deadpool and Gumball for their lack of fourth walls. Though they were going to get fed up by Deadpool if Truffles didn’t threaten the guy to buy something every time he comes by. Deadpool laments that his cash pile shrunk a bit.
  • Starjun once challenged Mung to see who was the better chef. What happened were several explosions, a flood, and Gordon Ramsay getting into a fistfight with a bear. The tasters were Chowder, Midora, and a freaking Deviljho. This ended as badly as one would expect it to.
  • Were present during Fuse’s invasion, where they were aware that they were stuck in an MMO. They might know what really happened after the Fusion Invasion but they don’t really want to talk about it. Especially when it comes to Fusion Kimchi who was present in Chower’s mouth.
  • Their restaurant was offered to be bought by Burns who enjoyed their exquisite food. Despite the massive amount of cash shown, they did not give into it after learning Burns’ purchases of their most expensive meals is a better investment than what he offers. Burns has sworn to take revenge on them for their refusal... not before buying another meal from them.
  • Shares the same surrealness that the Eds bring in, like when they kept on getting stuck in the series of flashbacks for example. They befriended the males of the company though Truffles is very much terrifying to look in the eyes for them.
  • Exclusive to Mung Daal:
    • Trained by one of the greatest chefs of his time, Mung has taken pride in how his kitchen and cooking function, accumulating the knowledge of countless meals in his head. Though he has many other talents up his sleeve, like being a total ladies man and a really damn good guitar player but his age is catching up to him. He tries his best to train Chowder but he can do only so much before Chowder causes havoc.
    • Would call himself head of the company which is true since it is named after him. Though if he is forced at a gunpoint, Mung would say his wife really runs show business wise. Even he is too afraid to not keep himself in the spotlight this time.
    • Mung is proud of his mustache almost as much as his cooking. Mung found Yosemite Sam’s title over mustaches to be overblown and almost got shot for saying that in front of the cowboy himself. Though Mung will complement the mustache of Mustache Girl, being much more positive to the fairer sex.
    • He tasted Sojiro’s curry and was deeply impressed. Mung now is doing his best to replicate said curry as Sojiro did not give him the recipe. Not that Mung is angry about that, as he sees it as a challenge to his chef skills.
    • Qui-Gon Jinn knows the frustrations of mentoring but can only give pity after seeing Chowder has the intelligence of a hungry Jar-Jar. Also comes in from time to time to enjoy a nice meal from the company from time to time.
    • Had sung he wanted to take the moon and sun. Little did Mung know that this would unwittingly invite Solaire and Shadow Moon into his home where they asked him why he wanted to capture them. Before Mung could explain it was only a song, both parties started battling each other, causing havoc throughout the company. It took Truffles to kick them out but Mung will never forget how he feard for his life.
  • Exclusive to Chowder:
    • A cat... bear... rabbit... thingy, Chowder is the apprentice of Mung Daal and his goal is to be the next great chef after him. Unfortunately, Chowder’s stomach is bigger than his desire to cook. Also, he isn’t the brightest person in the world, elevated to a now almost absurd degree of stupidity. Still, he’s a nice boy who’s determined to become the best chef.
    • Who would win in an eating contest? Chowder, Kirby or Gluttony? It was a question that was too afraid to be answered but it was unfortunately. To spare readers from the horrifying details, the only way to stop their devouring the entirety of the plane of existence was to release the one thing that their stomachs could react to: Mystery Food X. The only being who was able to stomach it was Kirby but barely. After that, the three became fast friends though a ban from any eating competition between any of them was enacted.
      • Pac-Man wanted to join in but was mature enough to know that something terrible was going to happen. Still, since chowder is such a Nice Guy, Pac-Man befriended the boy regardless.
    • Hoto Cocoa is rather fond of Chowder, trying her best to be a good oneechan to him after seeing how adorable he was. Unfortunately for Chowder, she teases him a lot about Panini (especially learning what Chowder’s future is like) to which Chowder replies:
    • Is friends with the sponge and starfish themselves. Helps that a certain Greenblatt was also present in making Spongebob. Chowder likes eating Krabby Patties, being able to consume as much as Patrick. Even Spongebob was freaking out at his feat.
    Spongebob: How long can he keep eating like that?!
    Cocoa: I don’t know!
    • Managed to meet fellow food eaters, Goku and Naruto. As powerful as they are, they would admit Chowder’s appetite far outclasses theirs. Chowder may have thought one of the Dragon Balls were candy and ate one. It was quite disgusting to search the toilet afterward.
    • Is also friends with Beelzebub of the Seven Mortal Sins and both relate to each other over their shared gluttony. People make sure that their food stocks are hidden from them.
  • Exclusive to Truffles:
    • Likely the most terrifying of the entire four, Truffles in Mung’s wife and mans the business side of the company. When her buttons are pressed, Truffles is known to go into a terrifying rage that scares even the highest of beings into wetting themselves.
    • Shares the same tiredness of life that Squidward feels, hating to deal with customers as much as he does. Though as angry as Squidward can get, that is nothing compared to what Truffles become. After witnessing one of these rage-filled moments, Squidward inked himself.
    • Who would win in a rage battle? Benson or Truffles? Like the Chowder eating contest above, it’s a question nobody wants asking. Much to everyone’s relief, this question hasn’t been answered yet as Benson is more than happy to having Mung Daal’s catering services put into use at celebrations at the Park.
    • Admires how Kafuu Chino is efficient at her work ethic and wanted to hire her at the company. Chino said no but thanked for the offer but her priorities lie at her father’s cafe. Truffles still dotes on Chino as if she were a granddaughter, much to Chino’s chagrin.
    • Made friends with Oliver Armstrong over the fact that they are both REALLY SCARY WOMEN. When the two of them can be seen at the same room, nobody in an acre’s radius wants to be near them.
    • During an incident where the Kankers were chasing the Eds, they ended up at Mung Daal’s and tried rummaging the place, believing the Eds were hiding there. Truffles, walking in on them, was so furious at their mess it was one of the few times the Kankers became terrified of something. They were made to clean up afterwards, much to the hiding Eds’ relief. Then Truffles found them too eventually, realizing that they were the reason that the place got trashed. It didn’t end well for any of them...
  • Exclusive to Shnitzel:
    • Rada rada rada. Rada rada rada! RADA RADA RADA!
    • The muscle of the company, Shnitzel has only one word he can say: rada. Unless he is able to be stressless, that is the only thing Shnitzel can ever say. Not that it effects him much as everybody can completely comprehend what he says. So cursing under his breath is still a no go.
    • Shares the same voice as Jake the Dog and Bender believe it or not all in spite of the various radas he only says. Shares the big trait of the two as well by wanting to just be lazy at the end of the day. They tried mimicking his rada as well and now people could hear three Shnitzels arguing with each other.
    • Relates to Chewbacca over the fact someone can understand their speech though to be fair, you have to grasp on the Wookie language to know what their cries mean. Surprisingly Shnitzel had an easier grasp on Wookie language and is quite an expert... all while still saying rada.
    • Friends with fellow muscular people like Louis Armstrong and Sakura Oogami as Schnitzel can basically lift an entire building with both hands with little effort much to their shock. They all managed to bond by flexing their muscles to each other. The true way for sportsmanship to develop.
    • Could only pity Sharo for being so tired for working all the time, a struggle Shnitzel faces every time he gets to the damn kitchen. Is also trying his best to push Sharo to confessing her feelings to Rize, thinking that it could probably work out if Sharo wasn’t so shy about it. It’s a rather awkward sight to see a maid being told to do something by a Rock Monster.
    • Was once a Samurai, surprisingly one. Albeit a samurai who uses a balony sword and is a bodyguard for what is essentially a gang leader. The Shinkengers wonderd if Shnitzel could teach them a thing or two thanks to his unorthadox style but Schnitzel turns out to not be as good as it as he was before. Thought that may have all been just an elaborate lie made by Chowder that Shnitzel is riding off on.
  • You take the moon and you take the sun!
  • You take everything that seems like fun!
  • You start it all up and when you’re done...
  • Rada rada rada rada rada!

    Rafaam 
Alright, who is ne-

Rafaam: I like your trope. I think I will TAKE IT!

Arch-Thief Rafaam, God of Forcibly Taking the Spotlight (RAFAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM, THE SUPREME ARCHEOLOGIST, Arch-Villain Rafaam, Aspect of Evil)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rafaam.png
Arch-Villain Rafaam 
  • Intermediate God (Greater God while using the Staff of Origination)
  • Symbol: The Staff of Origination
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Large Ham, Big Bad, Ethereal, Red Eyes, Take Warning, Collector of the Strange, Sore Loser
  • Domains: Stealing, Collecting, Magic, Adventure, Evil
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Kel'thuzad
  • Enemies: The League of Explorers, Kalecgos, Khadgar, Indiana Jones, Nathan Drake, Lara Croft, Daring Do Waluigi, Doctor Fate, Hermaus Mora, Sheogorath
  • Opposed by: Anyone tied to a Card Battle Game and Card Games in general.
  • Rafaam is the self-proclaimed Supreme Archeologist. He first came into the scene when he stole the Staff of Origination from the League of Explorers, proceeding to cause havoc in their base before being ultimately defeated by them and some adventurers. Having laid low in the shadows, Rafaam resurfaced after putting out a team of evil villains, all the respective Big Bad of their expansion. With the League of E.V.I.L. formed, Rafaam planned to make his biggest hit yet, the Treasury.
    • With a few key members of the League of E.V.I.L. having already ascended, Rafaam decided that he needed a temple and a title. Using his Impossible Thief powers, he ended up stealing both a temple and the Hostile Show Takeover title from Waluigi after he left to play some tennis with his brother. The man returned to see one of his temples taken by the ethereal thief. Rafaam having declared himself the new owner of the title, he kicked out Waluigi and forced him to relocate. Shortly after, Rafaam was apprehended since Togwaggle forgot to close the door to the temple - however, given Rafaam's tendency to forcibly steal the spotlight for himself, he managed to keep a similar title and remain a pantheon deity.
  • Needless to say, the League of Explorers was very unhappy to see Rafaam return, possibly trying to steal something very important for the pantheon's welfare. And unfortunately for them, he managed to retrieve the staff of origination and keep it with himself.
  • Touts himself as an archeologist. Other adventurers are disgusted by his evil nature, but Rafaam just brushes them off as being just jealous of his "prowess". That, and Indiana Jones is mad that he keeps confusing him with Harrison Jones.
  • Has a habit of taking someone's else deck. While many deem this cheating, for some reason the Innkeeper Harth Stonebrew still allows Rafaam to participate in his events and games, but only as a minion, he already banned him from being an actual player. Outside of the Tavern, he attempted to play other games like Magic the Gathering or Yu-Gi-Oh, usually earning the ire of other deities because he keeps taking their decks.
  • He is the mastermind that formed the League of E.V.I.L., consisting of himself, Madame Lazul, King Togwaggle, Hagatha the Witch and Dr. Boom. Their first big heist was hitting the magical city of Dalaran, which mobilized all their residents the second they entered. Kalecgos, one of the Kirin Tor regents, immediately recognized Rafaam and tried to evict him from the Pantheon but unfortunately, he was unable to do so thanks to Rafaam being an official deity.
    • During this time, the ethereal assumed the name Arch-Villain Rafaam and wielding the staff of origination as a gauntlet (amptly named "Gauntlet of Origination"), he allied himself with the Warlocks who are willing to help him with his heist on Dalaran. He and Gul'dan may have crossed and butted heads in the past, but he is perfectly fine with working for common goals.
  • In his quests for "collecting" more precious artifacts, Rafaam heard stories from artifacts possessed by the Daedric Princes. He actually first tried and learn the forbidden knowledge of Hermaus Mora but the Daedric Prince was on to Rafaam and almost killed him for his troubles, barely avoiding death thanks to his staff. Then he tried to do the same by taking the Staff of Everscam, thinking it could be a powerful artifact similar to the Staff he uses, but Sheogorath was also onto him and simply decide to mess with Rafaam. Needless to say, the Ethereal spent countless days trapped in Sheogorath's temple and decided not to try and steal from him again.
  • Having heard of the Helmet of Nabu, worn by Doctor Fate and possessing the powers that could rival the one of his staff, Rafaam instantly wanted to get the power for himself. So he alongside his league devised a plan to strike Fate's temple. This led him to the GUAE and he joining the ranks in hope for getting support for his League of E.V.I.L. and other "collection" affairs. Both Ken Nelson and Nabu have caught onto the Arch-Thief's schemes and branded him as another agent of chaos that must be put down.
  • While he rarely, if ever, likes to share his collection, he feels that Trazyn the Infinite is like a kindred soul. Similar eccentric personality with a trollish streak and a habit of stealing rare objects, the two hit it off instantly. It helps that he is very near the League of Explorers temple, which facilitates Rafaam and his group to strike them at any time.
  • Rafaam and Kel'thuzad DO NOT get along ever since the former brazenly challenged latter to a Hearthstone duel, getting crushed in the process. A few months later he decided to challenge the Lich again and having prepared for the duel he actually managed to defeat him. Both have been at each other throats ever since.
  • Turns out that his master plan was to resurrect the ur-dragon of Azeroth, Galakrond. To do so after stealing Dalaran he unleashed 5 plagues in the city of Uldum and stole the Plague of Undeath to resurrect the Dragonlord. It's not known whether he succeeded or not considering the Plagues were stopped by the League of Explorers in time and even if he managed to resurrect Galakrond, the accounts of the story tend to differ. Rafaam claims that he and Galakrond became besties, utterly anihilated both the Alliance and the Horde and then he was forced to put down good'ol Galakrond after realizing his victory was a hollow one (And somehow succeeded). On the other hand, some claim both were actually stopped by the League in time but Rafaam doesn't want to acknowledge those claims.
    • Then it turns out that Galakrond ascended shortly after into the pantheon and he wasn't thrilled to see Rafaam again. Against all odds the ethereal was able to convince the dragon to let bygones be bygones and work together again, even if the Dragonlord would rather eat Rafaam rather than listen him ramble again.
  • "I am Rafaam, the Supreme Archeologist".

    Strong Bad 
Strong Bad, God of Reading Fan Mail Beyond the Fourth Wall (Stong Band, Professor Tor Coolguy, Tip Tappers, Vance Mudgeman, Cara Carabowditbowdit, Dr. Marvin Rubdown, The Leg, Dangeresque, Lord Barglebroth)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/strongbad2kq.png
  • Theme Song: You Can't Handle My Style or Strong Bad is a Bad Guy
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Strong Badian Flag
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Thinking he's way better than he actually is, Being stuck in gaming's past, Loves the Ladies, very popular character that eventually became the face of Homestar Runner, reads emails sent by the fans, jerkasses, starting out as a nuisance, but eventually lost his edge, catchphrases, expressive masks, comedic sociopaths
  • Domains: Creation, War, Heavy Metal, Trickery, Video Games
  • Herald: The Cheat
  • High Priest: Pig
  • Followers: Old-Timey Strong Bad, Stinkoman, Keyboard Strong Bad, Teen Girl Squad
  • Allies: Travis Touchdown, Sam & Max, Dan, Lord Hater, Deadpool, The Heavy, Robbie Rotten, Dick Dastardly and Snidley Whiplash, Bandit Keith, Papyrus
  • Rivals: Black☆Star, Tycho, Sans, Nostalgia Critic
  • Enemies: Marzipan, Wander, Napstablook
  • Opposes: Eric Cartman
  • Opposed by: Blanka, The House of Love
  • Love-Hate Relationship With: Homestar Runner
  • Unwitting Pawn to: Doc Scratch
  • For the longest time, Strong Bad shared the title of Massive Egoism with Black☆Star. However, the Gods would soon realize that forcing two of the Pantheon's biggest egomaniacs to share the same temple wasn't exactly the best idea, as the two would constantly argue about whose better.
  • It was then determined that Strong Bad would be assigned the trope of Reading Fans' Emails, due to it being the basic premise of his popular Strong Bad Email series, as well as the most popular segment of his site. He continues to read emails sent by both fans and deities alike, responding to their questions and giving out what he believes to be life-changing advice.
    • As soon as Yuuki Terumi got word of Strong Bad's new title, he immediately spammed his inbox with emails asking how he types with boxing gloves on. Unfortunately for him, Strong Bad caught wind of his trolling and proceeded to beat the ever living crap out of Terumi as soon as he found him. Since then, while Terumi occasionally sends Strong Bad emails to troll him, he now makes it a point to never bring up his boxing gloves.
  • When visiting the House of Dragons, Strong was left thoroughly unimpressed with what he saw. None of them were anywhere near as cool as Trogdor the Burninator. He's now working to get Trogdor ascended so he can show them what a real dragon looks like.
  • As of now, he's working on another installment of his critically acclaimed Dangeresque film franchise, Dangeresque 4÷2=6. Or at least he thinks they're critically acclaimed. In reality, most of the Gods consider the Dangeresque movies to be so bad, they're good, but choose to humor Strong Bad and call them "some of the greatest action films this century".
  • Gets along well with Sam & Max due to him taking a liking to their style of policing, even offering them a chance to cameo in Dangeresque 4÷2=6. Likewise, the two detectives took a liking to Strong Bad, even occasionally letting him tag along on their investigations as Dangeresque.
  • Despite his claims of being one of the greatest villains in the Pantheon, he admits that there's one villain whose style he could never handle: Robbie Rotten. In fact, Robbie has the distinction of being one of the only deities in the Pantheon that Strong Bad thinks is cooler than he is. Robbie, meanwhile, is flattered by Strong Bad's praise, and is more than willing to give him pointers on how to up his villain game.
  • Lord Hater is another villain he gets along well with, namely due to both of them finding Wander's cheerful and upbeat attitude to be annoying, as well as sharing the same love of pranking others
  • Napstablook once ran into Strong Bad and offered him a demo disc for a song he was working on. Strong Bad took one listen to it and declared it to be "lame nerd crap that Strong Sad would listen to", before decking Napstablook...only to be completely unphased by it. Frustrated, Strong Bad spent the next twenty minutes trying to hurt them, with Napstablook apologizing for inconveniencing him. Sans eventually came across the sight and offered a worn-out Strong Bad a soda...only for it to spray in his face.
    • Since that day, Strong Bad has been trying to get Sans back, only for Sans to somehow avoid all of his pranks without trying.
    • In contrast to his rivalry with Sans, Strong Bad gets along pretty well with Papyrus, namely because the skeleton's one of the few Gods to genuinely believe the boasts he makes about himself. Seeing Strong Bad as harmless, Sans had no problem with their friendship but warned him that if he hurt his brother, he was "going to have a bad time". Needless to say, the encounter gave Strong Bad the jibblies.
  • Whenever he participates in any sort of competition, always expect Strong Bad to try and cheat his way to victory. As such, he often rubs elbows with the likes of fellow cheaters Bandit Keith and Dick Dastardly.
  • Strong Bad greatly approves of the lengths Dan's willing to go to for revenge, however, even he's a bit disturbed by Cartman's more extreme methods of vengeance.
  • Out of his three poker buddies, Strong Bad gets along with Tycho the least, finding his pretentious attitude to be reminiscent of his brother, Strong Sad. Meanwhile, Tycho considers Strong Bad to be an uncultured idiot that can't appreciate his level of sophistication.
  • Ever since Strong Bad heard of the Nostalgia Critic's conquering of the micronation Molossia, he's been working to beef-up the security of Strong Badia in preparation for a potential invasion; not knowing that the Critic couldn't care less about his crummy patch of dirt.
  • Strong Bad insists that he has about 30 girlfriends, it just so happens that none of them are in the Pantheon...and they all live in France. That said, it doesn't stop him from going to the House of Love to try and hit on the ladies.
  • It's speculated that Strong Bad has some form of reality warping abilities, as the random thoughts he shares on sbemails somehow become real, such as Trogdor the Burninator, Sweet Cuppin Cakes, and the band Limozeen. When asked about this, Strong Bad simply replied by saying that his ideas are so great that the universe simply cannot continue to function until they become a reality. Whether or not this explanation holds any water is anyone's guess.
    • Some of the more malevolent deities are looking for a way to use Strong Bad's abilities to their advantage, such as when Lord English put the Lil Cal nightmare into Strong Bad's head, then got an SB email from Doc Scratch asking him what the creepiest thing he could come up with was. Strong Bad answered with a drawn picture of Lil Cal, which in turn lead his subconscious to eventually cause the doll to materialize into being, allowing Lord English and Doc Scratch to access the Pantheon.
    • Since that incident, the Grand United Alliance of Good has been trying to keep evil deities from sending Strong Bad emails, lest he unwittingly unleashes any more dangerous beings into the Pantheon.

Lesser Gods

    Daring Do 
Daring Do, Goddess of Real "Fictional" Works (A. K. Yearling, Daring-Do, Daring Do Dazzle)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/daring_do_3961.png
  • Allies: Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Fluttershy, Indiana Jones, Lara Croft, Nathan Drake, the League of Explorers, Jonathan Joestar, the Crimson Chin
  • Enemies: Zoran Lazarević, Arnold Ernst Toht, Xingo, Ungalo
  • Rainbow Dash didn't know when she had the idea for it, but after coming to a realization upon glancing at Indiana Jones while reading a Daring Do book, she sped off and began to peruse the list of tropes that haven't yet had a deity assigned. When asked who she was trying to ascend, she answered "Daring Do!"
  • The next day, after the Court reviewed her hastily-written plea (and description of the pony she wants in the Pantheon), with assistance from Dream of the Endless, Daring Do found herself ascended (she was already in the Pantheon as one of Lara Croft's followers).
  • Gets along with fellow neighbor the Crimson Chin. She's fascinated that a fictional character like him can be real outside of his comic book, while the Chin himself was initially perplexed that an author like her was first assumed as fictional, but that didn't stop him from being friends with her.
  • In regards to her work as A. K. Yearling, despite the nature of her trope, it is still mostly a secret, though now it's the author persona who's the secret identity rather than the explorer, which she finds perplexingly funny.
    • Speaking of her author work, she's rarely at her temple for that and instead works elsewhere to write in peace due to another neighbor of hers; Xingo, who annoys her every opportunity possible. She remarks that her Rogues Gallery are easier to deal with than him.
  • Besides Lara, Daring eventually met the man she was based on; Indiana Jones. Oh, and Nathan Drake as well, and the League of Explorers, too.
    • There was also Jonathan Joestar, who was also an archaeologist and became so to understand the secrets behind the Stone Mask, even though this aspect of him wasn't that explored as much as he is more known for fighting vampires and other undead.
    • She and Indy eventually read a crossover tale featuring the two of them (a fanfic written by Lyra Heartstrings and Rainbow Dash).
    • Naturally, due to her association with Indy and Nathan, Arnold Toht and Zoran have become her enemies, too.
  • Apparently, Twilight Sparkle's mother has some ambiguous involvement with the Daring Do books in her world, but it's not known if she's in the know on Daring's secret.
    • Speaking of that, there's been one other question she's asked; which of her identities does she regard as her "mask", the author or the archaeologist? She has not deigned to answer that.
  • Has an extended archive of her adventures right here. She's not saying how much of that is actual canon in her world, though, only that most of the content in that page is likely not among her actual adventures, particularly the sequels and prequels.
  • Ever since a certain incident, she's tried to take better care of her surroundings, especially when villagers might take issue with her. Because he's known to be a Walking Disaster Area, this poses a huge problem when she works with Nathan Drake on an expedition should shit hit the fan.
  • Stays far, far away from Ungalo who, unpleasant personality aside, has powers involving bringing fictional characters in image to life. If one identifies with said character, they're doomed to suffer whatever fate had in store for them. Sure, he's banned from the House she stays at, but its boundlessly widespread range is still worrying.
  • It wasn't long before a shattering revelation about Daring's work was revealed: she isn't really as heroic as her books make her out to be. The artifacts she liberated don't end up in museums, but in her private collection. Ahuizotl, her archnemesis, was actually guarding the artifacts from thieves like Daring. But—under an amulet that induces its holder to tell the truth—she honestly believed they were safer in her hooves than Ahuizotl's hands or museum security.
  • Ever since the truth of her stories was brought to light, her relationships with the other Adventurer Archaeologists of the Pantheon have since become considerably strained, especially with Lara and Indy. Ironically, this is not the case with Nathan, who has had similar motives as Daring (stealing for the thrill), and they've actually become closer friends as a result. In fact, he's considering hiring her under D&F Fortunes (the Pantheon branch, anyway, given there are no magical ponies on Earth). Given her career as an author is essentially ruined, she's considering taking him up on that.

    The Oni

  • Source of Interest for: Albert Wesker, Eren Yeager
  • Banned from: The House of Craft and Logic
  • On a particularly boring day, the GUAE Trollkaiger were looking for new ways to make other deities miserable. Researching new monsters to torment people with, they learned about the Ao Oni and its infamy for killing all but one visitor of four who entered its mansion. Noting its ability to pop out of anywhere, even behind text boxes or in the inventory screen. They decided to ascend the Ao Oni with the trope of Behind the Black and soon enough, its mansion would manifest into the Pantheon, as its new temple. While the Oni will try to kill the Trollkaiger as well, they're still very willing to deploy the Oni anywhere for it to cause mayhem. With its ruthlessness and ceaseless pursuit of unfortunate humans that stray near it, the Oni hardly bores out the Trollkaiger.
  • Besides hiding behind the black borders and text boxes, it will pop out of anywhere it can to scare and pursue its target, and at very inconvenient times as well. It'll pop out from fireplaces and furniture, come out from the floorboards, or the closets, after or even during someone completing a puzzle, when someone picks up an item, and it even had the gall to attack NintendoCapriSun while he was IN THE BATHROOM! Unfortunately for its victims, this monster practically has no standards. For this reason, it has vividly impressed the Bogeyman.
  • PewDiePie was screaming the moment he heard news of the Oni's ascension, remembering his traumatic encounters with the Ao Oni in one of his earlier LP's. Felix accused the Oni of raping him, complete with a description of it singing "Shut Up and Sleep with Me" by Sin with Sebastian. While others hardly believe his tale, deities do keep an eye out for it anyway, since it hunts down and eats humans that it finds anyway. Felix doesn't know why, but the Oni somehow found its way to his temple once, though no one was harmed since Felix would hide in the closet and escape it each time the Oni chased him, until it got bored and left. The GUAE Trollkaiger, wanting to send the Oni back when he least expects it, are patiently waiting for their next opportunity.
    • Vinny had also encountered the Oni within one of the Doom mods he was trying. Being in a new genre hardly limited its ability to chase him, which Vinny would soon learn. Failing to shoot it down with a pistol, the encounter went down horribly for him. Vinny barely remembers it enough to recognize that it's a force to be reckoned with if it might try to look for him again, but it has yet to run into him...
  • Unlike in its home universe, the Oni can be killed by those capable of unleashing sufficient lethal force to it, which Momotaro, experienced with vicious Onis himself, was willing to demonstrate by saving a few deities from one by slicing it in half, proving that it was no Invincible Villain. That said, it is still a major threat for a few Lesser Gods and as well as deities of lower ranking. It may be easy to outrun, but once it gets its hands on you...
  • Unfortunately, victims that can turn into other instances of the Ao Oni after death are not limited to those it kills. A man who was trapped in his mansion had been Driven to Suicide and despite not being killed by the Oni, his body reappeared as if he were still alive and transformed into the Ao Oni. All deities that die with the Oni's mansion, as well as those who die near the Oni may also turn into Ao Onis later themselves. Due to this, in case sightings of multiple Onis outside the temple appear, Intermediate and Greater Gods may be sent to deal with the Onis before they can attack even more people.
    • Albert Wesker has been very intrigued by its ability and wants to try experimenting with one to create artificial beings with similar beings. Obviously, his enemies aren't willing to let him get away with such a task, and the Oni itself will try to kill him on sight as with everyone else.
  • While the Scout could easily out-maneuver the Oni, he made the mistake of going into its darker corridors and got killed by a hidden Oni.
    A newly respawned Scout: Damn that stupid creep! I pity the next guy there who has to deal with some big, ugly, and purple me!
  • Since the RED Sniper zooms in with his scope all the time, the Oni often sneaks through where his scope obscures his presence, until it gets close enough to attack him. For this reason he despises the Oni as much as he would an enemy Spy.
  • Whenever the Oni is near the temple of a South Park deity, its appearance also changes to resemble the South Park character style. Not only that, but dialogue from nearby characters manifest as black text boxes, letting it exploit the Behind the Black trope even more. It can also speak in this form, but it's assumed that its personality in such a state doesn't represent its actual mentality, though it still loves to ambush and kill any human that is unfortunate enough to strike up a conversation near it.
  • For those that worry about the Ao Oni approaching, one can hide within the nearest closet, and it may not find you if you do, should it enter the room. Obviously don't do it if the Oni is already in the room. Solid Snake managed to fool the Oni with the good old box trick, evading the Ao Oni while investigating its mansion. Henry Stickmin went into its mansion to look for stuff to steal, and managed to use the same trick to fool it. He didn't notice a Blockman Oni behind him that already saw him using the trick, and Henry was caught and eaten by both Onis.
  • The Crewmates were going about their usual business, and had just gotten rid of one of the Impostors. After some time passed, they were suspicious about the lack of deaths occuring, until a purple Crewmate suddenly turned into an Oni to kill the White Crewmate, which surprised them since the Purple Crewmate had been scanned earlier at the MedBay room and was confirmed to be a real Crewmate. Not even the Impostors like the Oni since they're all just as likely to be victims.
  • The Oni's ruthlessness in pursuing and chasing its victims, even in the middle of puzzles, has made the Oni a great source of frustration for puzzle solvers in the House of Logic, so it's banned from being near it.
    • It also got banned from the House of Craft after raiding it of all its blue crayons, which it brings back to its mansion to scribble all over some of the walls inside, to the confusion of many.
  • Madotsuki had nightmares related to the Oni, especially from playing some mini-game related to it where it could eat her friends and turn them into Onis.note  Knowing that it now exists in the Pantheon has made her even less willing to leave her temple, and hopes it never learns of her. David, Sophie, Keith, and William had also heard about the Oni and they do warn her when the Oni is near, and likewise, they've made preparations for when the Oni finds them as well.
  • The Oni had found its way into Aya's temple, which the girl found to be even more terrifying than her own father, and given its tendency to suddenly appear from about anywhere, she ended up hiding as often as she could in fear of it. However, knowing what the Oni could do to Aya, her father decided to run into her temple to protect Aya from the Oni, managing to ambush and kill the Oni with a chainsaw before it could lay a finger on Aya.
  • While she can protect herself from the Oni, Misao still doesn't like it, for not only the fact that it wanders around to find people to eat and kill, but knowing that as a vengeful spirit she would ally with the Oni and send it to kill targets she despised. That said, if any Asshole Victim, especially any malicious bully, is personally endangered by the Oni, she doubts that she'll try to save them.
  • Spooky found the Oni interesting, and decided to make her mansion welcome for the Oni to wander in. The Oni often prefers to hang around in Specimen 12, where unfortunate deities now have two deities to hide from. Specimen 12 has been a much more deadly obstacle for explorers of Spooky's mansion thanks to the Oni's presence.
  • Being an Oni, it does qualify as a demon, and given its malicious and murderous behavior, the Doomslayer will hunt the Oni if he finds it wandering about, and given his arsenal, he usually obliterates it before it can get close enough to harm him. Him as well as Princess Sakuna and Dante have united in his effort to prevent the Oni from attacking weaker deities in the Pantheon.
  • Both Hiro and Zero Two were asked to try communicating with the Oni in their Klaxosaur forms to see if it will have a meaningful response. The Oni stopped for a moment when noticing them, but it attacked them anyway, and the two simply took down the Oni, since the Oni didn't seem to care, assuming it wasn't smart enough to tell that they weren't actually Onis.
  • For some reason that they're yet to understand, the Oni doesn't attack Niko, but it isn't pacified by their presence, and it'll simply kill other people around him, which obviously causes them a lot of distress. Niko has tried and tried again to sway the Oni away from its violent lifestyle, but they have had no progress in doing so. The most that Niko can do is warn others of its arrival, though they worry that doing so may invoke its appearance faster. Others believe the Oni's ignorance of Niko is a Cruel Mercy as it pursues and devours Niko's friends in front of them.
  • The Batter doesn't really think any different about the Oni than many of the monsters he's encountered, seeing them as another target to purify. Fortunately, his methods actually work on the Oni, which lets him effectively kill the Oni before it can harm him.
  • A collective "NOT AGAIN!" was heard from the Antarctic Research Crew when they heard about another entity that could eat people and disguise as other individuals. It doesn't help that any killed person near it could become an Oni too. However, the Oni refuses to cooperate with The Thing, and they try to kill each other should they run into one another.
    • It also finds itself competing with the Carrion entity and Nothing There for human victims. While the both of them will often successfully kill the Oni, this also means that the Carrion and Nothing There can disguise as the Oni, which can be a horrible surprise for those attacking what appear to be the Ao Oni.
  • Unusually, the Ao Oni and SCP-049 are not hostile to each other, and primarily ignore each other, including the instances of SCP-049-2. For some reason, SCP-049 believes that the Ao Oni does not need to be cured. The SCP Foundation has been trying to understand why, but they haven't gotten any solid answers.
  • In their rampages, Ethan Roark Junior was one of the victims eaten by the Oni. Soon enough, a yellow Oni would appear in his place, and it did catch some of its own victims before some stronger deities came to get rid of them. The Pantheon chose to refer to this variant as "Kiiro Oni" given that it inherits The Yellow Bastard's yellow colouring and his horrific smell.
  • Mami Tomoe decided to peek through the window of the Oni's mansion just in time to see someone inside get caught by the Oni, with the Oni chomping their head right off. That was the last time Tomoe ever visited that mansion on her own.
  • Alex Mercer visited its temple in an attempt to kill and absorb it, successfully finding and taking one out, but it turns out that absorbing the Oni hardly granted him any powers, to his disappointment. That said, gaining the shapeshifting ability of the Oni would be a redundant upgrade. Suddenly, another Oni resembling the Scout ran up to Alex from behind, and managed to kill him quickly before he could respond. (He wasn't the first one to be surprised by how fast the Oni could be if it catches them off-guard) Now there's an Oni that resembles Alex Mercer walking around in the mansion, and the real Alex is very unhappy to have such a humiliating death.
    • The Alex Mercer Oni eventually escaped into the Pantheon to hunt for James Heller, who was already alarmed to see what looked like his enemy coming right for him. Being more than ready to engage the intruder, he managed to kill the Oni as it revealed itself before it could try anything else.
  • The Oni seems to be welcome in the Heavenly Host Elementary School, as it can appear there and chase down whoever is trapped there. The victims there will not turn into Onis, thankfully.
  • Deep within the mansion are a room full of strange, seemingly mutated Onis of various forms and properties. Frank West was the first in the Pantheon to find this room, and took pictures of all the freaky creatures within. From the Blockman Oni to a larger Oni with huge muscles (nicknamed "Squatto") and a large blob Oni, it has horrified the public and has caused some to speculate about the origins of these purple menaces.
  • While their mindsets and desires are unknown, the fact that those the Oni kills, or at least those that die near the Oni or within the mansion, are turned into other Onis with a resemblance of their former victims, some have suspected that the Onis are some variant of Titan Shifters, which has gotten Eren Yeager intrigued about their potential origins. He admits that there's very little evidence to go off on so far.
  • Thankfully, the Oni lacks Super Strength and while it is strong enough to overpower Demigods in the Pantheon, a very tough cage can hold it down. The House of Defense has constructed an iron wall around it to minimize the chances of it escaping into the rest of the Pantheon. However, the Oni does manage to find its way past it on its own, and that's not considering the secret portal that the GUAE Trollkaiger has erected to let it reach the rest of the Pantheon on its own.

  • Party Members: Nega Scott, Travis Touchdown, Sonic the Hedgehog, Link, Issei Hyodo, Scout, Angel, Philip J. Fry, Luke Skywalker, Stitch, The House Of Food's chefs, Deadpool, Peacock, George and Harold, Yuu Haruna, have joined the party!
  • Inbox: One Odd Friendship request from Plague Knight and Lemony Snicket
  • DANGER!: Gideon Graves, Wiz and Boomstick, Tarquin, Raynare and Bowser nearby!
  • Found a shortcut through Subspace leading right into the Pantheon of Love. Also earned $35.20 though bashing several of the House of Villains minions. As such, he sometimes goes towards villains to "grind" up money and experience by beating those beneath his ranking of Godhood. Bowser has grown annoyed of Scott charging into his base to challenge his army.
  • Was once the god of Fighting For Those You Love, but Scott commented one day on how this title was more fitting for someone who actually went through Hell. When questioned about how he knew of the trope's original title, he responded, saying he looked it up on some website. Due to this revelation alongside other factors where he was aware of the media he was in, he got a new, more fitting title of Medium Awareness.
  • Gets along somewhat surprisingly well with Travis Touchdown since they're both otaku that are flawed but ultimately good-hearted human beings. The fact that they both are well accomplished swordsman of different types hasn't gone unnoticed by the two, sometimes even duking it out with each other for a sparring match. Time would tell if they actually have a full-fledged battle.
    • He also has made a habit of training with Link, though Link has yet to find a sword that can glow and cut like Scott's sword. He has however impressed Luke Skywalker with his prowess of the Laser Blade (both his The Power of Love sword and his power of Understanding sword). The two sometimes fight against each other just to amaze the residents of the Pantheon. While Luke has gained a fair share of wins thanks to his force, Scott was able to snag a couple wins, and the two see each other as a Worthy Opponent.
  • Keeps on asking Sonic what the cheat codes are for his second game. Sonic states that he has no idea what Scott is talking about.
  • Maintains close ties with Issei; the two are often seen hanging out and talking about their respective girlfriends - Rias and Ramona. He would also let him sneak into the House of Romance with Rias just so they can make out. They both are antagonistic towards Gideon Gordon Graves, too.
  • Has impressed the Final Fantasy IV gods for knowing their bassline for the wild battle theme (although he insists that it's called Final Fantasy II in confusion to Firion and the Emperor).
  • Is not happy with how Amy Rose fought Ramona in a Death Battle which ended with Amy summoning a tornado to crush Ramona amongst a myriad of arcade machines. As such, he has actually begun to offer support against them, while Wiz and Boomstick has started to call him a hypocrite due to how eager he was to start fights before. Given that he wasn't that proud of his past and is genuinely trying to change for the better, with results that do vary but show some promise, he has taken offense to that and had to be restrained by several other deities before Wiz and Boomstick decide to stick him in a "on-the-fly" match against an Overdeity.
  • He has became a bit of a big brother figure of the sorts to George and Harold, finding a similar common ground with them having some degree of Medium Awareness and even were a bit of a Jerkass in their earlier days (although George and Harold had gotten a movie where their motives from their first outing are explained better and they Took a Level in Kindness). It's not uncommon for them to be seen together playing video games or reading comics.
  • Given how similar they sound, he has been compared to multiple times with The Scout. The "Scoot" army has taken notice to these similarities between them. The both of them find this Actually Pretty Funny and are good pals with each other, even if they both are willing to battle each other for fun.
  • He is NOT happy to see that Gideon Graves himself ascended and that he has gained a new friend in the way of Raynare. As such, Scott has told him that his own party is ready to kick his ass should he try to mess with Scott again. Gideon just sneered and said that he's still getting ready for a rematch.
  • Stitch and Angel can easily get behind the idea of fighting for your true love, and have became allies to him, especially since they also hate Gideon as well, much to Scott's pleasure and amusement. They also sometimes go on double dates together, though these usually tend to gravitate eventually to the House of Combat, as Scott and Ramona face off against Stitch and Angel to see how many foes they can beat.
    • Surprisingly, Plague Knight has taken a liking to Scott Pilgrim's story of having to fight others to prove his love for Ramona, as Plague Knight also went through beating down other knights to create a potion just to prove his love for his assistant, Mona, but not that he really needed it. The fact that their girlfriend's names almost sound the same isn't lost on them. As such, Plague Knight sometimes goes to Scott for romantic advice, much to Scott's surprise, giving how many people view him as a Jerkass; not that it bothers Plague Knight.
    Plague Knight: I was told to feed a girl oats while grooming her hair, heh...I don't think I can hear much worse, hee hee!
  • To the shock of many, he is actually a very good prep chef, to the point he prides himself as Scott Pilgrim, greatest prep chef in the world. He has taken up a job within the house of Food in order to show off his skill and earn some money. Doesn't stop him from messing up a order or two and getting on the receiving end of one of Gordon Ramsey's famous yells (though given it was done at few minutes before closing time, most don't take it as big a deal.) Regardless, he still remains on good terms with the chefs.
  • Surprisingly, Scott became rather acquainted with Lemony Snicket, due to how his knowledge of literature mirrors Scott's knowledge of video games. He also does feel some pity for him how he also had a love interest whom he has lost due to unforeseen circumstances. While Scott isn't afraid to admit Lemony Snicket freaks him out a bit, he's willing to put that aside and be a surprisingly decent friend to him.
  • During a trip around the Pantheon of Music, Scott made a new friend in Yuu Haruna. A fellow bassist, Scott thinks it's cool Yuu ascended for bringing dignity and rspect to bassists while both relate to one another with their social problems and dealing with stuff from their pasts. Scott has gotten better at the bass thanks to Yuu.
  • In a visit to the house of Heroes, he weirded out Superman by asking him if he still gets his powers from being a vegan, and Captain America questioning his skateboarding skills. Carol Danvers, on the other hand, was just amused that Scott offered to play bass in her next concert.
  • After a fight with Graves resulting in him popping up a TV portal, Scott found himself pushed in by the presumably fallen fighter, being faced in a empty Chaos Theater with moments from his past playing all over TV screens, leading up to a giant movie theater with the Nega Scott watching the screen, awaiting Scott. After a minute, both of them emerged from the TV world buddy buddy with each other, with Scott suggessting that the Nega Scott get a proper title to ascend into the Pantheon as he sets up brunch for him in the house of Food.
  • Cab also be found in Learning Tools.

    Wade Wilson/Deadpool 
Wade Winston Wilson, God of the Fourth Wall and Breaking it (Deadpool, The Merc With The Mouth, The Regenerating Degenerate, The Crimson Comedian)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image9.jpg
Don't worry tropers, I won't burn down the Pantheon. Well, maybe.
  • Lesser God/Overdeity (depends on how much the writer is willing to let me look past the Fourth Wall)
  • Symbol: My belt buckle icon of myself (which I KNOW you totally want one, buddy) with a yellow text box. Oh, how fun they are! :)
  • Theme Music: "Never Do It Now"; Alternatively, the Deadpool Rap by TeamHeadKick (click here for the movie version!)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good, ever since I became an Avenger
  • Portfolio: The Fourth Wall (or lack thereof), Breaking Said Fourth Wall, Medium Awareness, Obfuscating Insanity, Whatever the Hell I Feel Like (I'm awesome and kinda fickle that way)

  • Followers: Lots…but none of them know of it, and if they did, they'd deny it out of humility.
  • Former Superior: Rob Liefeld, my creator, who introduced me in New Mutants as a copycat of Deathstroke. But that's another story.
  • Allies: Um…no, I don't think so… Except Excalibur maybe? Ooh! Wait! Pinkie Pie, too! And Lambadelta, Etna, Yakko, Wakko and Dot, who did it all first. Oh, and Lobo, another fourth-wall-breaking buddy! Oh, I cant forget about Painwheel. I feel for this girl. Cable and Domino? Just in time for the new movie! Also Alison Blaire/Dazzler who is such a great singer!
  • Not So Different From: Slade Wilson/Deathstroke (after all, I'm modeled after him), Tony Masters/Taskmaster (I have a lot of things in common with him).
  • Headbutting Heroes With: James "Logan" Howlett/Wolverine (I hate working with him, he's too inferior in comparison to me), Doreen Green/Squirrel Girl and Makoto Nanaya (I admit that Nanaya is too hot, but these two squirrel girls kicked my butt).
  • Enemies: Magneto, welcome to die! Also, I freaking hate The Joker and Lester/Bullseye.
  • Rival: Naturally, me and Dante are rivalries. I also have a bone to pick with Jason Todd for copying my style, and of course the big bad dragon Nefarian. The Mask earns some points for humiliating me!
  • So, I'm a god now? Awesome! I wonder if this means I can talk in bullet-point format now…
    • We're good.
      • Oh, little bullet point format, I've missed you so! We will have so much fun together!
  • My knowledge of the Fourth Wall allowed me to just slip into the Pantheon easily, since I know I'm popular enough for you (yes, you!) to eventually think of putting me here. Yeah. I'm such a Manipulative Bastard; eat your heart out, Batman!
  • Interestingly, with my expanding popularity, my Medium Awareness has also expanded, since I'm, slowly but surely, being featured in different media beyond comic books, and I have Medium Awareness in every single one of them. Soon, I will be able to overthrow all of the other deities in all the pantheons and create Deadpoolia! COWER BEFORE MY LIMITLESS KNOWLEDGE! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!
  • Oh yeah, and I want to be featured on the cover of the next Street Fighter game, Capcom!!
  • I once beat the crap outta that whiny-ass Terumi in terms of using memes and the fourth wall, that upstart. Boy it felt good and showed who's boss! Well, I hope Arc System Works will be impressed and feature me in the next BlazBlue game as well — Ooh! Blaz Blue Chrono Phantasma was just announced — Wait, I'm not even there!? TERUMIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!
  • After the battle with those two squirrel girls... Wait a minute. Did someone paint a message on the wall that said I was gay for Asura!? I'll find you and shoot you.
  • Hey, I don't get why people are irritated with that cute little thingy Excalibur. I mean, c'mon, we could talk all day and not get tired of each other! ...Wait, does this mean I'm now in possession of an Infinity +1 Sword because of my incredible mentality? And I can kick anyone's ass with him? AWESOME!
    • Oh hey, so apparently we also share the same seiyuu too. Aw yeah, we are seriously pals for life!
  • Soooo, if I may have your attention, you love this site, yeah? Then fair warning... DON'T. USE. MY. WACKY. VOICES. Wanna know the result? Why don't you ask good ol' Dreadpool, he— *notices Dreadpool on the open door behind, slams the door shut and seals it with nails and every other sealing things available* ...You get the idea!
  • Yeah, I was made to resemble that Deathstroke fellow. But guess what? I AM WAY BETTER THAN HIM! You don't believe me? Well, it just happened that Wiz and Boomstick decided to put me and him in one of their "Death Battles", and guess what? I WON! Suck iiiittt!
    • Okay, so MAYBE Slade came back for no real reason and tried again, and maybe he did blow me to pieces in a minute's time, but hey, still couldn't kill me!
    • Looks like I'm gonna make a return appearance in this DEATH BATTLE!! Now let's see who my opponent is... what? Pinkie Pie?! Come on, I get that we are both known for wacky personalities and Breaking the Fourth Wall, no offense to the party horse, but I've been in many more fights than her, and she's never really fought solo! Come on, ScrewAttack, you can do better than that!
    • And so because they got me to fight ON MY BIRTHDAY, I decided me and Pinkie were gonna screw them over by NOT fighting to the death and just party! Jokes on you, Ben and Chad!
    • Wiz and Boomstick apparently hate me so much that they set up a fight only to have me killed - and indeed, no matter how much I struck The Mask, that green freak just brushed it off. Even as I took out the Continuity Gem! He blew me to bits, and I'll never forgive Big Head for it, even if he sent the Gem to those jerks so I'd be revived.
  • Yo, I audition for a role as a MagicalGirl. So to get a better feel on what's a Magical Girl is, I been hanging around little miss Cry Cute Cure Peace. We are totally best friends now. I also "burrowed", read steal, the Moon Princess' moon stick and transformed myself into champion of love and chimichangas, Sailor Moonpool.
  • Seems like I met Disco MILF and psycho doll before. And utterly own their asses. Ok, so it only happen in a fan's comic and is not in pantheon canon so no complaining about shilling, worfing or what ever. But come on, you know they deserv it.
  • I cry a river when I heard about Painwheel's backstory. I just want to scoop her in my arms and carry her. In fact, I will. Troper, link, now.
  • I'm still mad at Morrigan for giving me that surprise enema. I mean, it felt kind of good, but at least warn a guy first.
  • Some have said when my face isn't Swiss cheese, I look like Hal Jordan. But that's impossible since Lantern boy was never in the movies. Plus, my avatar only played me in my own self titled movie. I was never in that Cankuckle's prequal movie.
    • But hey, Reynolds did an awesome job portraying me for my 2016 movie! Boo-fuckin'-yah, baby! You are now officially my live action avatar! Be seein' you guys again in the sequel! Just no screwups, please. And yeah, bring in Cable too. Hey Caaable! When are you going to get a seat here??
  • I'm the Sixth Ranger of the Lol Rangers. You know what that means? That means I'm the most important and strongest member on the team. I also hog all the screen time. But you love me anyway. Well, most of you do.
  • So, hey, when am I going to be feature in a Pantheon Tale? I mean, if I'm in your stories, it be ten times better. Come on, expand your horizon and stop using the same characters.
  • If you can't find me messin' around in the Narrative House or the mortal world, I'm probably in the Main House (suck it, Wolverine!) or the House of Knowledge.
  • OH OH! I almost forgot that there was this evil black dragon that also dominates the 4th wall. Can you believe it? Obviously he's no match for me. He will never be as clever or handsome or f*nn1 3r... wa1t Whtas going on? 1S TH3 P4NTH3ON GOING to EXPLODE! OH F-.

Demigods

    The Patapons 
(drum beats) "Pata Pata Pata Pon!"

The Patapons, Divine Tribe Of Addressing the Player

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/patapon.jpg
  • Demideities on their own, potentially stronger with the Almighty's help, who might be an Intermediate Deity. The Hero is a borderline Lesser God, actually reaching that as the Uberhero.
  • Symbol: Hatapon's banner, or the The Patapon Drums
  • Theme Song: Patapon 2 Donchaka (パタポン2ドンチャカ♪) Title Theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, though the Almighty can have shades of Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Musical Gameplay, War Has Never Been So Much Fun
  • Domain(s): Warriors, Drums, Rhythm
  • Heralds: Hatapon (flag bearer), Priestess Meden (spiritual leader), Hero (champion), Ton Yaripon (convert Yarida), Chin Yaripon (disciple Taterazay), Kan Yaripon (disciple Yumiyacha)
  • High Priests: Kalas, Terry
  • Allies: the Monster Hunters
  • Enemies: Hades (in God of War mode), Polygon Man, Mori Motonari
  • Opposed by: the Carapaceons, Plesioth
  • Sometime after finally reaching Earthend and seeing IT, an envoy from the Trope Pantheons approached them with an invitation. Given their history with other tribes, the Patapons were wary, but after they resurrected the Almighty after they had sacrificed themself to save the Patapons from their petrification, not to mention also reviving the Hero that they had fused with, they immediately accepted the offer. And so, after their ascension ceremony, as well as setting up an area for their "temple", they founded a new Patapolis in the Pantheon.
    • Due to spatial-related errors or some such when it came to the portal letting the Patapons through, they ended up being…bigger than expected. How big? Well, not towering or anything, but enough that even a single Yaripon, Yumipon, or Tatepon is a legitimate threat to a Quasideity-level human, though still shorter than one.
    • Additionally, their Almighty is now visible as a pair of eyes in the sky, but their voice still cannot be heard by the Patapons. The Court also decided to bestow them an avatar for communication purposes with other deities.
  • The Patapons have four drums, which the Almighty utilizes to deliver commands to the tribe, which in turn is relayed to the flag bearer Hatapon. With the drums, the Patapons can be directed to do the following (besides advance, attack, defend, or retreat): charge up their next attack/defense, jump in the air [up to five times the height of an average Patapon, as Dekapons are larger] to avoid area-of-effect ground attacks like earthquakes and low-firing laser blasts), and cure status effects afflicting the Patapons. The Almighty also mandated some extra rhythms to account for three-dimensional maneuvering.
    • There are also certain Jujus the Almighty can grant (for a maximum of two minutes at a time), like the Rain Miracle (aside from the obvious, which is often used when traversing desert areas, it can defog, remove sandstorms, stop lightning from descending in a storm, quench fires, and reveal invisible foes), the Blizzard Miracle (can defog, remove sandstorms, and freeze up both sides, especially flying units), Tailwind Miracle (clears fog, increase projectile range while decreasing that of their enemies), Earthquake Miracle (shake the earth and stagger most foes), Storm Miracle (both effects of Rain and Tailwind, plus lightning), Shock and Awe Juju (Brimstone) Juju (increase attack power), and Duck and Cover Juju (increase defense).
  • As long as the Mater, their Tree of Life stands, any fallen Patapon warriors can come back to life so long as their Cap is retrieved and buried beneath Mater. Of course, the House of Life and Death is another choice, but they'd have to go there first to get back any fallen Patapons whose Caps have been lost.
    • The Mater can also upgrade Patapons to certain Rarepons, who have varying strengths and weaknesses.
    • As for the question of reproduction, this means is only for the warriors and at the Almighty's behest. Civilian Patapons (presumably) procreate the usual way.
  • Hades wasn't particularly happy to see these little things, given that they've harassed him (and Polygon Man's contestants) once before.
  • Due to conflicts in the Pantheon being at a larger scale, the Almighty—who was given an incorporeal avatar that can interact with other deities (but not the Patapons)—has decided to call for some help. The Commander, (Insert Name Here), and the Tactician answered the call and are willing to lend a hand. Additionally, they rejected Motonari's offer, knowing he will just waste their people.
    • That said, the Tactician has the most problems with them, given that it's difficult to keep them all alive, and it still hurts to have to compromise by at least keeping their Caps from being lost. Thankfully, the Patapons deployed is just the (Uber)Hero, Ton Yaripon, Chin Yaripon, Kan Yaripon, and Hatapon forming a single combat party, making this easier on him/her.
    • With so many Patapons to look after, and so many more places to be, the Almighty has been bestowed by the Court of the Gods to be able to be in several places at once (even when fused with the Patapon Hero to be the Uberhero), so they can lead multiple hunting parties (after rediscovering—thanks to the Pantheon—how to make more Hatapons, though the original—now Hatapon Prime—has the strongest influence).
    • As for who they side with in the Pantheonic wars, while they know that both Hope and Evil bring meaning to life and are appealed by the idea of being Agents of Balance, the Almighty has decided to throw their lot in with the Grand United Alliance of Good as they believe it serves the best chance for the Patapons' survival.
  • At least once a month, Priestess Meden ends up being captured for whatever reasons the enemy has in capturing her, and each time the Almighty and the Patapons have to get her back. With new allies, this is much easier to do, but no less aggravating to the Almighty.
  • As a tribe of hunters with little (but not none) in the way of farming, the average Patapon has little experience in the concept of trade (and by extension money apart from ka-ching). The Almighty and the Hero unit have been trying to make progress in teaching them that.
    • If you're wondering what ka-ching is, it also serves as "life force" for Patapons, which is why Mater needs Ka-ching to make new Patapons. As a result, whenever the Patapons go hunting or fighting, ka-ching get dropped whenever a hunted animal or enemy falls. For some reason, ka-ching is also dropped when they attack (non-sentient) flowers or fruits, or when they wreck buildings in battle.
  • As hunters, and a nominally very hungry race, they're often off hunting for food, sometimes joining the Monster Hunters for meat, though the MHs think their pacing can use a lot of work. At the very least, stealth (at least to the level the Monster Hunters need) is out the window for them, but then there's also their preference to stay clean, thus they'll run from smelly game, and especially fresh droppings. Progress is being made to lead them to the House of Food for a bountiful meal instead.
    • As a result of being allied with the Monster Hunters, they also hunt the same game, though usually sticking to the Carapaceons or (if the Almighty is up for the frustration) Plesioth.
    • There are ways of getting around their marching speed, though, since they are capable of walking on their own, and platforms, teleports, and other stuff are now available.
  • Despite their accomplishments, the Patapons aren't that strong in the Pantheon. The reason why is because of the fact that they rely on a rhythm to follow to be effective. Even though this rhythm cannot be disrupted by loud noises since Hatapons can somehow hear the Almighty's drum beats despite that, rhythms mean patterns, and patterns mean they're easily predictable.
    • As such, allies are needed to distract the foe from noticing the Patapons. Also, mobile platforms can help them move faster.
  • Having had to face someone who can summon little tornadoes even though Gong the Hawkeye has since allied with them a few times before, they're leery around those who can do the same (or worse). Such examples would be Wamuu, Rashid, and Herr Frederick von Twirlenkiller.
  • Can also be found in Gaming Narratives.

Quasideities

    Dora the Explorer 
Dora Márquez, Goddess of Fake Interactivity
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dora_in_2018.png
Click here to see her in her adventures at Playa Verde 
Click here to see her as a teenager 
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: her Map and Backpack
  • Theme Song: her show's theme song
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, but several view her as some degree of Stupid Good
  • Portfolio: Free-Range Children, Breaking the Fourth Wall, Gratuitous Spanish, Occasionally Idiotic Heroine, Nice Even To Villains, Kid Heroine, Exploration Desire Is Hereditary, No Indoor Voice, Outdoorsy Gal, Plucky Girl
  • Domain(s): Interactivity (False), Exploration, Spanish
  • Herald: Boots the Monkey (her traveling companion), Diego Marquez (her cousin)
  • High Priests: Steve and Joe
  • Followers:
  • Allies: Spongebob Squarepants (being his former high priestess), most Good-aligned Nickelodeon deities, other animal lovers and some deities in the Bestiary, Jack and Annie, Cream the Rabbit, Hilda (Hildafolk), Zack Morris, most non-evil child deities in general
  • Friendly Enemy: Swiper
  • One day, an anonymous request came to the Court of the Gods in the form of a video where an anonymous person was nominating someone. And for some reason, the person behaved as if the viewer was supposed to answer. Still, the Court saw the point and later brought the recommended character, Dora the Explorer, to the Pantheon.
  • Often addresses an unseen subject at times. Those with special visions usually see a floating video camera, presumably the entity she's "interacting" with.
    • Among those who can see this camera are Deadpool, Gwenpool, and Zack Morris. She's often overwhelmed when the latter two mess around, Wade making a lot of derisive (but still kid-safe) comments about her show, and Gwen… not being nearly as insulting as him, while Zack is amicable enough around her and even eventually befriended her somehow.
  • She is never seen without her Backpack and Map. The former often has whatever item is needed (even ladders), the latter has some questionable credibility (depsite its frightening tracking competence), and both need to be called at by someone other than Dora (and Boots) twice.
    • Part of her ascension package is that her backpack's star pocket can summon whatever Explorer Stars she's caught and released throughout her adventures to help her out in any situation where she needs them.
  • Would eventually have adventures at Playa Verde, but she usually assumes her current appearance.
  • Tries her best to let slide the derisive comments she sometimes gets, but doesn't know how to stop them; they're not slurs to her culture or anything, but to her intelligence simply because she talks to something that's not there and expects a response from it. There's probably also how she regards Swiper, as that can easily send the wrong lesson.
    • And let's not even get into the times she allegedly gets grounded for doing... terrible things. Jimmy Neutron understands that feeling of having non-canon media depicting them in strange and kid-unfriendly things.
    • One time, she broke into the House of Mentalism with her dad's chainsaw and killed the Scooby Gang. She was not only banned from the House of Mentalism, but she ended up in the Pantheon State Prison because of it. The gang would later be revived, though.
  • Despite how her show usually goes, she's no stranger to truly vile scum (at least as much as a kids show would allow). Even then, she doesn't show much anger.
  • Occasionally visits the House of Sports to practice her baseball and soccer, the latter of which she excels at. She's taken the time to search for a representative deity for it.
  • She's also proficient in the guitar and flute.
  • As someone who's made a lot of animal friends, Dora has also become friends with those who made similar kinds of friendships as well. Examples include Fluttershy and Eliza Thornberry.
  • Isn't pleased with the notion that she's an illegal immigrant.
  • There happens to be a live-action movie featuring her in the works. Despite initial rumors, Michael Bay has denied being directly involved in its production.
  • Is advised not to try her usual tactic with Swiper on the Sniper for...reasons. He's professional enough not to do that to her on a whim, but anybody else who makes that joke will get a Jarate and a headshot.
  • She's had her fair share of inside-a-magic-book adventures, and was curious to hear of a pair of kids whose books had the same effects. One visit with Jack and Annie later, and Dora has gained two more friends.
  • Is pals with Santa after one Christmas where she asked him for the chance to remove Swiper from the Naughty List by teaching him the meaning of Christmas.
  • She and Boots apparently went on an adventure to Antarctica, beating an expedition team to it, and even asking what took them so long. She can't remember doing such a thing, knows that some things said there were condescending, and is aware that they were underdressed for the South Pole.
  • During one of her travels, Dora crossed paths with Hilda, who was on one of her own travels, too, accompanied by Cream. They hit it off well and added her in their circle of friends (with animal companions).
