Pantheon / Military Technology

Go To

Also known as the treasure vault of the War house, this domain has the exclusivity of guarding many of the most powerful weapons of the Pantheon that aren't dangerous enough to be in the main Treasures vault, many of those with incredible destructive power. It's also very common to see Mecha Pilots and their Humongous Mechas being safeguarded here, often doing maintenance work in their free time. Mostly those from non-affiliated units though, because the well-known ones like the RX-78-2 Gundam are at the respective Alliance's hangars. The Pantheon's branch of Anaheim Electronics has a secondary facility here serving all sides of the Forever War.

As the name implies, this was originally going to be part of the House of Technology but it branched out after arguing that it could prove devastating to keep there. Nevertheless, engineers and mechanics from the entire Pantheon tend to show up here as well.

  • Millions of years ago, on a distant planet called Cybertron, a brutal civil war was waged between two factions of sentient robotic lifeforms; the Autobots and the Decepticons. Their conflict lasted for countless eons, with many of the planet's population becoming involved, including an Autobot by the name of Orion Pax. Whether he started out as a lowly dock worker, or a clerk in Iacon's Hall of Records, or a rogue cop, one thing was for certain; his fate became entangled with that of a former gladiator turned revolutionary named Megatron. Thus, either by injury or rite, Orion was christened Optimus Prime and became the supreme commander of the Autobots, leading them in the battle to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons.
    • This war eventually led to the Pantheon, where after a brief firefight, Cosmos and Melkor approached Optimus and Megatron respectively and offered them a place in the Grand United Alliance of Good/Evil. As per tradition, Optimus sided with Cosmos. He has come to respect the Goddess of Good, and has worked closely with her to achieve peace and prosperity for not just the Pantheon, but for all the worlds. After all, freedom is the right of all sentient beings.
  • For a time, the only Autobots stationed in the Pantheon besides Optimus were Bumblebee, Grimlock and his fellow Dinobots. While they managed to hold their own for a time against Megatron, Prime knew they would be quickly overwhelmed, so he sent a distress signal to Cybertron, requesting back up as soon as possible. Help soon came in the form of Ultra Magnus, who brought with him a small strike force of Autobots and Maximals with him to drive off the Decepticon forces that had previously outnumbered them. Once the battle ended, Jazz, Blaster, Dinobot, Rattrap, Hot Rod, Kup, Drift, Nightscream, and Magnus himself, were appointed as gods and heralds in the Pantheon, with Magnus becoming Primes' own herald. The pair often discuss matters of keeping the peace, and treat each other as brothers. Later on, Alpha Trion, one of the oldest living Transformers and recordskeeper of the Primes would be brought into the fold as well to monitor Prime's activity in the Pantheon and to converse with Primus on Optimus's behalf. Prime has absolute faith in him. After all, in several continuities Alpha Trion was responsible for making him a Prime. Finally, he's also elected his best friend Ironhide to the position of herald to replace Ultra Magnus and Prowl to continue his role as a strategist for the Autobot cause (and also to keep an eye on him following some 'questionable' moral decisions on his part).
  • Prime's descendant, the Maximal commander Optimus Primal serves as one of his less personal heralds, alongside his high priest, the Super Robot known as Raideen. While both have aided the Autobots in their ongoing struggles, Prime was a little disappointed with Primal's descent into religious extremism when fighting the Vehicons, as opposed to the more fair-minded and reasonable leader he was during the Beast Wars. Still, he was thankful for having his life saved by Primal when his version of Megatron attempted to rewrite history and kill Prime.
    • Things got particularly weird when the House of Time and Space discovered an alternate Beast Wars timeline where Optimus Primal - now transforming into a bat - was in fact, the original Optimus Prime in a new body. The pair treat it as a fascinating experiment but both agreed that Prime will remain a truck and Primal a primate.
  • As a Transformer, and a well-known one at that, Optimus has taken on many different forms, which he can freely change into in the Pantheon to take advantage of their perks, his primary one being a red and blue White Freightliner WFT-8664T cabover semi-trailer truck. Sometimes he's a fire truck that can combine with Ultra Magnus or Jetfire, other times, he can use the Minicons, become a Megazord-esque Powerlinx combiner, wield the cyber planet keys, occasionally uses Magnus's war hammer, or Star Saber. All these bodies can transform into trucks still but all of them have proven to be incredibly useful on the battlefield.
    • While a patient individual, if Optimus is pushed too far, he'll take on the appearance of his alternate universe self; a corrupt and sadistic tyrant who rules over Cybertron with his army of evil Autobots. He may appear to be a calm and collective individual but one must be extremely careful. Taking on the Shattered Glass Optimus is akin to dancing with the devil.
  • Prime quickly became allies with Mata Nui and the Toa, to aid them against the threat of the Makuta. It was through this alliance that he was introduced to Saint Jeanne d'Arc and Sieg, who viewed him as a paragon for the inherent goodness of all of life and the values they must uphold. Despite Jeanne being part of the Council of Liberty, Prime knows she has the best interests for everyone in mind. Jeanne in turn then introduced Artoria Pendragon and Shirou Emiya to Optimus and they ended up liking him as well, often joining him on council meetings. Optimus though was saddened that Saber had great regrets for not being there so much for her kingdom to the point of wanting to undo her rule and Shirou is desperate to help and save everyone due to his severe Survivor's Guilt weighing him down his entire life. Optimus though assured them respectively that Artoria does not need to be burdened by her kingly duties and start being human again and Shirou has saved enough people that he needs to leave it to others and focus on protecting his loved ones instead.
  • Not even Optimus is immune to death. He's met his maker - both literally and figuratively - on numerous ocassions. Some of these deaths, like being gunned down by Megatron, were certainly more dignified than committing suicide after "cheating" in a video game world. In fact, it's gotten to the point where he's actually become immune to permanent death, with some of his comrades treating it as a minor inconvenience.
  • Before anyone asks, yes. He's got both the touch ''and'' the power. Yeah! And when all hell is breaking loose, he shall be riding the eye of the storm. The song only plays in dire situations, and when it does, pray you're on Optimus's good side. He will wipe out anyone who dares cross his path.
  • One day, Optimus Stopped Megatron from killing Tony Stark and Heero Yuy, but in doing so further escalated things into an event that threatened to divide all gods associated with the House of Technology into one of two sides. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed, and the House keeps a relative peace.
  • Optimus Prime's greatest weakness is his sense of nobility and honour. If an adversary claims to have had a change of heart and discovered inner goodness, Prime will fall for it almost every single time. The GUAE has taken advantage of this, and often try to dupe him into letting down his guard. But that isn't to say he's stupid. Far from it. Optimus is a quick learner, and with so many enemies in the Pantheon, he's well on his guard.
  • Despite his appreciation for humans, there are several in the Pantheon whom Optimus has become enemies with. In particular, he distrusts Dr. Albert Wily, Ivo 'Eggman' Robotnik, Professor Hojo not only for their inhumane experiments, but also for reminding him of the Decepticon-aligned scientist Dr. Arkeville. Doesn't help that Hojo has attempted to send some of his neighbours, the android Cell and Indominus rex after the Autobot leader. Optimus held them off, but afterwards, he allied himself to both Mega Man and X to aid them against Wily's Robot Masters.
  • Optimus was amazed by the multitude of human-piloted mechas found throughout the Multiverse, ranging from the Mobile Suits, Zords and Evangelions. He quickly aligned himself and the Autobots with the ascended Sentai, Power Rangers, Gundam and Eva pilots, along with the Kamen Riders, due to all sharing a similar sense of justice and duty. It has however led to him opposing the Lightning Count, Zech Merquise, due to butting heads with the Sixth Ranger Tommy Oliver, and Misato Katsuragi, due to her treatment to Eva pilot Shinji Ikari, who Optimus has begun treating like a son.
    • Despite being a giant humanoid-looking lifeform, Optimus and the other Cybertronians are not titans. They had to get that cleared up when Eren Yeager attacked them. After a very humiliating defeat on Eren's part, the Autobots declared partnership with the remnants of humanity, vowing to aid them in the fight against the Titans. Progress has been going well, though Annie Leonhart and Bertolt Hoover have considered ascending their comrade Reiner Braun, the Armoured Titan to deal with the Transformers.
  • As their philosophies and colour schemes are not dissimilar, he gets along well with both Captain America and Superman, with the former having met the Autobot leader on previous engagements. They get together frequently, discussing matters of spreading peace throughout the Pantheon and how to best defeat the GUAE.
  • Regrets not being able to join Madoka at the regular "Savior's Tea Parties" due to the fact that as a robot, well, he can't drink tea even if he wanted to.
    • When he got word of YHVH's monstrous plot against Madoka, he prepped his upgrades from Revenge of the Fallen, and went forth to take part in "The Pantheonic Rebellion". "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings."
  • Though perfectly content as a Greater God, Optimus's reputation went up after it was revealed that he is the 13th Prime, who took mortal form to guide and inspire the children of Primus. But even with this in mind, Prime remains humble about it, and tries his best to not let it get to his head.
  • Optimus is a pacifist at heart. He hates bloodshed, but even he understands that sometimes, war is the only path to achieving peace. Every death on his watch weights heavily on him, but this just makes him fight with more fervour. Unfortunately, his desire to protect every living being has caused him to but heads with the leaders of the other alliances, who view his methods to be too detrimental to their own ideals. That said, he has a healthy respect for the Council of Liberty and occasionally helps them against the corrupt individuals in the Grand United Alliance of Law.
  • Optimus is considered by many to be the god most protective of those weaker than him in the entire Pantheon. In his multi-million year war against the Decepticons, he's seen countless sentient species extinguished, and he's sworn to never let that happen again on his watch. Hurting someone under his protection, especially a human, is to incur his wrath. To anyone who dares to do such a thing, well... Sucks to be you. Megatron learned this the hard way and, needless to say, he was lucky to survive it.
  • Has a strong friendship with Jean-Luc Picard. They practically share the same philosophy, and both are leaders who put their subordinates' lives first and foremost, so their relationship is based on deep mutual respect and admiration. One can often see Optimus and Jean-Luc having a nice cup of Energon and Earl-Grey tea together, respectively, and when danger threatens the pantheon, they both unite in giving tear-inducing speeches of supreme inspirational capability. Rumors has it, when no one is looking, Jean-Luc likes to ride Optimus into space.
  • While the Autobots and Maximal forces stationed in the Pantheon have proven to be quite resilient, Optimus has found himself approached by additional allies, some of whom being organic in origin. Gunvolt and The Guardians became fast allies with the Autobots, both supporting Prime's ideals considering how much conflict they've dealt with in both their home universes.
    • In Gunvolt's case, his war revolved around the hatred between humanity and the dangerously powerful Adepts. While still a hitman - at the age of fourteen, no less - Jazz has described Gunvolt to be a good person, and noted the similarities between his dream of an ideal world and Prime's own virtues. Prime has offered to help in whatever way he can, to which the young hitman accepted.
    • As for The Guardians, Optimus reached out to them to aid in their fight to protect the last of humanity against time travelling killing machines, space pirates and omnicidal undead cults. They appreciate the assistance, but the alliance displeased the Vex, Oryx and the Eliksni, who quickly designated the Autobots as their enemies.
  • He has a mixed relationship with Michael Bay over his film adaptations of the Cybertronian war. While he appreciates the fact that these stories are being enjoyed by a new generation, there are certain practices Optimus objects to, such as the objectification of human females and the overuse of explosions. He is also a bit of embarrassed of people telling him to aim for the head of his opponents whenever he goes into combat.
  • Optimus was shocked to learn that Prowl, one of his most trusted lieutenants, defected from the Autobots in at least one universe. An extra punch to the gut is that in in another universe, Prowl sacrificed himself to save his leader. It only made it worse when Cosmos learned that Prowl forced Prime, Sunstreaker, Mirage and Ironhide into becoming the Combiner Optimus Maximus, whose battles with Devastator helped cement a negative reputation for all Cybertronians. While he can't combine in the Pantheon, Prime doesn't even want to bring it up, especially since a piece of his former Lieutenant's mind lingers in him.
  • Having dealt with Planet Destroyers such as Unicron and Galactus, Optimus came to despise Gendo Ikari and Kamen Rider Evol as both could potentially destroy Cybertron as well as the Pantheon in general. He also sees Regime Superman as a reminder to never, ever be his Shattered Glass incarnation. For their part, Evolto might not have much of an opinion on Cybertronians, but he would like to have a chance at destroying Cybertron himself while Regime Superman sees Prime as naive to keep believing in heroics.
  • Optimus once fought against Amuro Ray in a battle simulation set up by Wiz and Boomstick. While he dislikes the idea of fighting a fellow hero and peacekeeper, he fought the White Devil to the best of his ability out of respect for his opponent. The fight ended with Amuro being killed by a point-blank blasted from the Matrix. Optimus did compliment the pilot for forcing him to use said Matrix, however, and this was with an outdated mech, the RX-78-2 Gundam. The two have given Wiz and Boomstick crap about the simulation, though it did allow them the chance to upgrade their weapons, armour and skills.
  • He's wary around Godzilla, not just because of the Kaiju's devastating power, but also for taking a bite out of him like Scruff McGruff takes a bite out of crime. Still, he's proven to be a valuable ally, especially against threats like Ghidorah, Biollante and Gigan.
  • Also a member of the Wizard Tetrad of Technology and the Main House.
  • "Till all are one."

    Ryoma Nagare 
Ryoma Nagare, God of Super Robot Pilots
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ryoma_68.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A twenty-foot tomahawk, a torn red scarf
  • Theme Music: Heats
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Super Robots, Combining Mecha, Screaming Attack Names, Hot-bloodedness, Victory Through Sheer Stubbornness, Final Attacks, Demented Attacking, The Complete Obliteration Of The Laws Of Physics
  • Domains: Courage, Martial Arts, Energy Beams, Axes, manly sideburns
  • Allies: All Gods who are in any way involved with Super Robots defer to him. Also, any Gods who represent ideals of hot-blooded heroism earn his respect. His fellow Getter pilot Musashi, Guy Shishioh, Kamina and Noriko, in particular, are always there for him and him for them.
  • Followers: A great deal many, but he only respects those who live up to his very strict standards.
  • His place was supposedly reserved for Kouji Kabuto. However, after he was once reduced into the sidekick of Duke Fleed, Ryoma takes his place. Now Kouji has claimed a place in the House of the Weapons and his spot in the Holy Trinity of Mecha pilots, Ryoma is delighted and looks forward to many joint ass-kicking.
  • Any God who wants to earn Ryoma's respect must be manly, brave and determined. Ryoma does not suffer wishy-washy gods. Any God with an Evil alignment is a target to him.
    • Isn't quite sure what to think of Shinji Ikari of the House of Emotion. On the one hand, the kid's practically King Wuss in day-to-day life. On the other hand, when push comes to shove, the little dude completely flips his lid, which earns some of Ryoma's grudging respect. The question of where exactly Eva Unit-01 falls between Super Robot and gigantic Eldritch Abomination also causes some confusion.
    • He respects Shinji's red-haired teammate, Asuka Langley Soryu of the House of Personality, and he praises her fighting prowess, hot-bloodness and fierceness, but he realizes the girl is very fragile and unstable deep-down, so he is mentoring her to help her to master her inward rage and grief and turn them into useful tools, and he is teaching her to wield a battleaxe properly.
  • Ryoma has received approval of Khorne for his fighting prowess, his hot-blooded rage and his sheer insanity. Ryoma just shrugged. He seems completely indifferent to have a Chaos God's approval.
  • While he is a devout vanquisher of evil, he has also noticed that kids tends to get scared off on him. For their sake, he would usually don upon a Lighter and Softer version of him, merely a virtuous Hot-Blooded student fighting for justice. Even that form was very formidable in vanquishing evil. But there are times that Ryoma would be forced to take off the kiddy gloves and take upon his original batshit insane form to utterly wreak havoc and destroying evil.

    Graham Aker 
Graham Aker, God of Personalized Combat Machines (Mr. Bushido, The Union's Greatest Ace Pilot, the Flag Fighter, Captain of the ESF Solbrave Squadron, Bushido Bob, Mr. Bullshito, Flag Fucker, Trans-GrahAm, Graham Crackers, Major Graham Aker (GUAG rank)formerly )
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_62.png
Click here for his appearance as "Mr. Bushido" 
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The emblem of the ESF Solbrave Squadron (previously, the emblem of the Union of Solar Energy and Free Nations)
  • Leitmotif: "Union", as default. "Masurao", under his alternate persona.
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (dips to Chaotic Good on occasion)
  • Portfolio: Ace Custom, Ace Pilot, Arrogant Samurai guy, Badass Normal, Boisterous Bruiser, oft-shipped with Gundams, Hot-Blooded Char Clone who is into Fragile Speedsters, usually equipped with Katanas, The Rival, Occidental Otaku, Samurai, The Southpaw, Valorous, Villainous Underdog
  • Domains: War, Mentalism, Weapons, Travel
  • Allies: Char Aznable, Zechs Merquise, Steve Rogers
  • Worthy Opponent: Setsuna F. Seiei
  • Rivals: Hilda
  • Odd Relationship with: Musha Gundam, Knight Gundam, Beet J. Stag, Sheryl Nome, and Nagisa Furukawa
  • Headbutting Heroes with: Javik and most Samurai-disciplined Deities
  • Enemies: Harbinger, The Gravemind, Ragyo Kiryuin, Nui Harime, Bask Om, Girhen Zabi, basically any evil-aligned deity who opposes The Federation, or who's obsessively into Assimilation Plots.
  • Once served as a follower of Char and previously considered as a High Priest Candidate after Zechs' ascension. Turns out that due to his extensive combat records aboard mobile suits tailored to his combat ability, he was deemed eligible for a post in the Pantheon. Thus, with the endorsement of the Red Comet himself, he was allowed to ascend (leaving Char without a High Priest. Again.)
  • The first thing he did after ascending was to meet up with Setsuna, in order to acknowledge him as a warrior who has reached the point of enlightenment upon becoming a Half-ELS Innovator. Setsuna initially doubted this friendly gesture, as the last time they tussled in combat was when Graham was still part of A-Laws, and was totally obsessed with surpassing him and his Gundam. Remembering his blaze of glory moment during the ELS conflict made him accept him anyways.
    • For the record though, Graham did acknowledge the fact that he would never be able to surpass the Gundam Pilot, moreso in his current state as a Human-ELS Hybrid. Doesn't stop him from being a Badass Normal aboard a mobile suit though.
  • Speaking of his A-Laws days, he's surprisingly abrasive as to the "Mr. Bushido" appellation. According to him, he's rather respectful of the Japanese Code of Honor, having trained as a proper Samurai after one of his battles with the Gundams gave him a scar on the face, thus forcing him to cover his face with a samurai-inspired mask which was the basis of the nickname. Quoth Mr. Aker: "That's what they decided to call me."
    • Ditto with the "Flag Fucker" nickname, though he accepts the fact that he may have had a hand on that due to his previous obsession to surpass the Gundams, particularly Setsuna's. Some mischievous deities obviously misinterpreted this as Ho Yay, Foe Yay, or both, to the point that they tease him into screaming "I WANT TO EMBRACE YOU, GUNDAM!" anyway. He just dusts it off and flies away after peppering them with beam rifle shots.
    • Nonetheless, he has formed quite a decent bond with both Knight and Musha Gundam, occasionally allowing him to refine his piloting skills; he has yet to be seen embracing them though. And for the record, Lockon Stratos has "yet" to forgive him for that time that he tackled his Dynames with the OverFlag he was using.
  • Thanks to some particular similarities, Captain America has been inviting him for a couple of drinks and some exchange of stories. Surprisingly, he has managed to attract the attention of The Galacic Fairy, making her blush on ocassion. Turns out she reminds him so much of her beloved Alto. Ditto with Nagisa as his voice reminds her of her husband Tomoya Okazaki.
  • Frequently tussles with Max and Hilda whenever in their respective mechs, with both of them unable to scratch his Brave Commander Type, moreso when it activates Trans-Am.
  • Thanks to his participation in the ELS Conflict, he has grown a slight hatred for evil deities who are into Assimilation Plots. This made him a character of interest for the Prothean in the House of Narrative, seeing as Graham's skills in dispatching aerial targets is basically up there with the best pilots of the Pantheon. Though Graham was quick to clarify to Javik that he had not known much of the ELS's intentions during that time, and was just protecting humanity from imminent danger.
  • Surprisingly, Domon Kasshu has been adamant of the time he lent his God Gundam to Graham, ever since he performed his infamous "God Graham Finger" move. Mere mention of the same would make him Face Palm.

    SCP- 516 
SCP-516, Deity of Sapient Tanks (Intelligent Tank)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/551.jpg
SCP-516 on testing range
  • Rank: Safe by SCP Standards, Lesser Deity by Pantheon standards
  • Symbol: A photo of it taken by SCP-978note 
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Gentle Giant, I Am Not a Gun, Hates Traitors To Their Country Who Are Shown No Mercy, Never Hurt an Innocent, Three Laws-Compliant
  • Domains: Tanks, Sapience, Patriotism
  • Followers: Bogey, Sir Cyrano De Bergerac, Sheila, Rynn's Might, Tiny Tank
  • Under watch by: The SCP Foundation
  • Allies: John Connor, Zero, T-800(Uncle Bob), the Iron Giant, Optimus Prime, Dizzy, Dr Light, Herbie, Vash the Stampede
  • On good terms: A.I who are Three Laws-Compliant, the Grand United Alliance of Good, Baymax, the deities from Girls und Panzer
  • Enemies: Traitors to their own country, regardless of alignment, Khorne, anyone who tries to weaponize it, Grand Moff Tarkin, Omega(Mega Man), XANA, SKYNET, Gregor Clegane, Anavel Gato
  • Conflicting opinion on: AUTO
  • SCP-516, known as the Intelligent Tank, is a standard model T-55 main battle tank. Originating from Ukraine, SCP-516 appears to be sentient and possesses a moral code. It can control and stop its main armament and turret assembly (known as SCP-516-1), only allowing itself to fire on combatants. It will Never Hurt an Innocent, and jam if someone tries to fire on a non-combatant. Of the many anomalous subjects and items in the SCP Foundation, this is one of the most benevolent.
  • Usually a Gentle Giant, and is adamant about not being seen as a gun. It shares this belief with the Iron Giant, who has become a good friend. When it comes to traitors to their country, however? It will show no restraint, no mercy. Even those more justified like Jake Sully aren't exempt from this. Naturally, it isn't welcome in Betrayal.
  • Despite its attitude to betrayal, 516's views on AUTO are more complex. Due to its peaceful heart, it can understand where AUTO is coming from in wanting to keep humanity away from Earth to protect it, but dislikes how it goes against orders. It has yet to make a stance on it.
  • A favorite with the Grand United Alliance of Good. Because of SCP-516's ethics, it is guaranteed to follow the principles of the Geneva Convention, and is almost impossible to use for evil purposes. The Grand United Alliance of Evil is frustrated by this, and wish to weaponize it. Khorne certainly wants to, and SKYNET wants to hijack its A.I, however it resists their efforts.
  • Isn't a Transformer in disguise or mode-lock, though it does admire Optimus Prime due to his Martial Pacifist personality. In general, it gets along with good-hearted weapons like itself such as Dizzy, and benevolent artificial intelligence. Despite being a weapon of war it seems to like Baymax, due to the importance physicians and doctors play in war, along with being a benevolent AI.
  • As a result of having strong ethics when it comes to conflict, it hates whenever soldiers and war commanders attack the weak. Such as its disgust towards Gregor Clegane. It hates the fact that Clegane not only rapes and/or kills non-combatants but prefers defenseless opponents. While not a traitor to his country, the Mountain That Rides is one of few exceptions to its restraint. It told Gregor "you're everything a soldier and knight should strive NOT to be!", though being Gregor simply responded "tell me something I care about".
  • Revolted by the Mountain, but just as if not even more revolted by Grand Moff Tarkin. This is due to using the Death Star on Alderaan, a pacifist planet which had no way of defending itself. Or most planets from such a weapon. It is disdainful towards Anavel Gato either due to wanting to hijack it.
  • Likes Zero and Uncle Bob. Like it, they were weapons that gained a conscience. Both of them started out as robotic psychopaths but through amnesia and reprogramming became heroes in their own right, learning the value of life. Why SCP-516 has a conscience is unknown and its admiration for them might hint it was not always the Gentle Giant of today, or it may just be general appreciation.
  • Impressed by Vash the Stampede's skill at using firearms non-lethally, and wants lessons in case its necessary for him to use firearms on a non-combatant without killing them. Friendly with Herbie as they're both sentient vehicles, and those from Girls und Panzer given their relationship with tanks.
  • While Dr Light would rather robots not be used for war, he was pleasantly surprised at SCP-516 due to its moral center. 516 admires Dr Light because of his desire for a world of peace, and for robots to be fundamentally good. As he does John Connor for his desire to see an end to the Robot War.
  • Would rather not be involved in war. SCP-978 revealed its ideal dream is living peacefully in a meadow, overgrown with plants. Still, it will do its duty in the House of War, preferably with other Ukrainian deities but is fine working with good-aligned members of its house.
  • Bill once got drunk, stowed away into the Pantheon and somehow piloted SCP-516 like the last time he stole a tank. And like last time, Hank Hill was able to talk Bill into stopping. 516 thanked him, though it wouldn't have done that much damage.

He withdrew from the final battle of the One Year War on the orders of then Captain Aiguille Delaz and subsequently participates in Operation Stardust as part of a Zeon remnant force to crash a space colony (again) into North America, where most of the Earth Federation's food was being produced. In the course of the operation, he successfully stole a prototype Gundam, the RX-78-GP02A "Physalis" amid a cover barrage, in an extremely risky move, which motivated the Court of the Gods to ascend him under the trope of Grand Theft Prototype.
  • This was further exacerbated when upon learning of his imminent ascension, he broke into the GUAG Robot War Division vault and hijacked the GP02A Physalis that was kept under maximum security within its confines. A lot of the deities there are still scratching their heads as to how he managed to infiltrate AND escape the base with the suit without being detected.
    • In fact, this is what led to the relocation of the other, untouched Gundam Development Project suits to the Mechas section of the Vault.
  • After mysteriously disappearing for a few weeks after the theft, he re-emerged during a skirmish between Grand Admiral Thrawn and Lord Castellan Creed in one of the House of War's many battlegrounds. They are particularly pissed at him for dealing massive casualties during his ascension; some deities who were present in the incident heard a loud cry of "PANTHEON! I! HAVE! RETURNED!!!" from within the halls, followed by a very large nuclear explosion, and later the sight of charred remains from three whole battalions each of both the 501st and the Imperial Guard (Including at the very least three out of the 100 Baneblades that Creed loaned from General Stubbs.) Suffice to say, Vader was not pleased upon receiving the news.
  • As a result thereof, he received his second title (and by extension, an elevation to Demigod status), but was advised not to conduct visits in the House of Theatre and Spectacle upon threat of having the said house's deities of equal or lower rank to him being nuked to kingdom come. After all, he did set the record for the highest kill rate per one-liner (his famous line at the expense of an entire Earth Federation Fleet). Not to mentioned he actually succeeded in the mission he was tasked with, he just didn't survive it.
    • This may also be the reason why the recently-ascended Fleet Girls (even those above his rank) are deathly afraid of him once he's piloting the Physalis. Surprisingly, he's invoking such fear factor at the Abyssal Fleet as well; so much that both factions have issued a "disable-or-flee-on-sight" order against him.
    • As Gato is the first ascended deity to bear the "Nightmare of Solomon" nickname, he has earned the ire of a certain blonde fleet girl deity who recently entered the House of Quirks because she had the same title. He doesn't care all that much though.
  • After getting his bearings, he immediately looked up any Zeon-based deities in the Pantheon. And since Char's name came up first, he proceeded to the GUAE's headquarters to volunteer for the GUAE Mecha Cohort. Impressed by the young man's gall to steal a mobile suit from the GUAG Robot War Division, the Red Comet put him under the divisional command of Haman Karn. He serves under her in the Cohort's Axis Zeon and disorganized Zeon remnants. Currently resides alongside Delaz in a replica of the Garden of Thorns base.
    • The situation has been complicated by the fact that Gihren Zabi has ascended to the Pantheon, since Gato and his herald Aiguille Delaz were devout loyalists to him. After this problem escalated into full-on civil war, Gato joined Gihren's side in earnest in its early stages, as one of the faction's top aces alongside the unascended Black Tri-Stars. He later defected back to Char with the unascended Garma Zabi upon realizing that his Glorious Leader was an Insane Admiral who desired a dystopia governed by the principle of 'survival of the fittest' comparable to Hitler, and had no scruples about sacrificing lives to achieve this. He was almost reduced to tears when Char told him matter-of-factly that Gihren had orchestrated the downfall and subsequent murder of Sovereign Degwin. The Nightmare of Solomon promptly declared loyalty to the true heir of Zeon and has become one of the Red Comet's most patriotic combatants yet again, though his idea of Zeonism differs greatly from Char's (and by extension Zeon Zum Deikun's). He's naturally a little bit afraid of the Newtype superiority Char always preaches, but is slowly coming to terms with it. His current view of Gihren is of all-out hate, but when engaging with the GUAG, he has been forced to work alongside him in these situations.
    • Gato has made an unlikely friendship with fellow GUAE pilot Ali al-Saachez, his polar opposite in every way. One wonders how, given Ali's desire for war and death in comparison to Gato's more controlled style. When the Mecha Cohort takes part in battles, Gato serves as a ranged fighter with his nuclear armament while Ali backs him up in close combat. For obvious reasons, Setsuna F. Seiei has become a prime target of his, having absolutely wrecked his Gundam in battle after the Gundam 00 Qan[T] survived all the nuclear blasts he could throw at it.
  • Has recently been put in charge of a strike force to steal every top-class Gundam the GUAG has. Hasn't had much luck lately other than making him an enemy of nearly every good-aligned Gundam pilot ever.
    • After Zechs Merquise, Char's former high priest, helped Gato out of a tight spot with his Gundam Epyon after he failed to secure the Turn A Gundam from the Vault, they have formed a very good friendship off-duty. On duty however, they occasionally battle when Zechs joins the GUAG Gundam Corps, but very rarely.
  • Despite the many threats from the Cohort's primary target, the GUAG Gundam Corps, Gato's biggest enemy has got to be Bask Om, field commander of the Titans, now in the Grand United Alliance of Law. He is incensed that Operation Stardust turned out to be for nothing and only served as a way for him and his superior, Jamitov Hymem, to strengthen the Earth Federation even more and repress all Spacenoids. He is secretly thankful that Kamille Bidan and the AEUG managed to put an end to their machinations, and fellow pilot Scirocco for killing Hymem, but chooses to keep quiet about this. Bask just sneers at the prospect of being able to get rid of another piece of Spacenoid vermin.
    • With Kou Uraki absent from the Pantheon, Gato's current rival is Titans member Jerid Messa, who pilots the NRX-055 Baund Doc. Gato thinks the mecha he uses is absolutely stupid-looking. Jerid, on the other hand, holds the traditional stereotype for Gato since his ascension, a trigger-happy Large Ham who only knows how to nuke people. He's obviously sour that Gato's a much better pilot with loftier ambitions than him that he is never going to achieve.
    • On that note, he's also being cautious around deities like Vegeta, Captain Falcon, and Dunban due to how they also sound like Kou Uraki. He'd rather not end up hearing "GATOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" in that distinct voice, only to turn around and see any of them instead.
  • Unsure what to think of some of the more morally grey Gundam deities, like Gilbert Durandal. Rau Le Creuset has sent Gato to assist Durandal and his ZAFT forces on occasion and he found the man to be generally amiable and friendly. With the discovery that he is a Social Darwinist akin to Gihren, but much more benevolent has raised Gato's eyebrows. As of now, he still hasn't passed judgement on him. Has nothing nice to say about the Cohort's liaisons to the Demonic Legion, Muruta Azrael and Lord Djibril, viewing them as Complete Monsters with a racism towards Coordinators far worse than any Universal Century Earthnoids could have. Their willingness to use nuclear weapons wantonly to destroy the PLANTs has provoked his fury towards them, citing that every nuclear missile he deployed was deployed with the guilty burden of killing millions of civilians, while they just used them mercilessly just because the Coordinators were 'genetically superior' to them.
    • He isn't a fan of how Durandal manipulated his star pilot Shinn Asuka into near insanity to help fulfill his goal of realizing a world where genetics determine a person's life. He looks forward to challenging the boy in his extremely powerful Destiny Gundam. Absolutely disgusted by the genocidal madman Rau Le Creuset, seeing him as unfit to be in the Mecha Cohort due to his desire to destroy all of humanity, but acknowledges that it may be his status as a clone of Al Da Flaga that may have sparked this. Meanwhile, he is willing to work with him but wants the man out of his sight as soon as possible.
  • Grand Admiral Thrawn, after their rocky first encounter, has since become one of Gato's most trusted allies outside the Mecha Cohort. Gato deeply respects the Chiss for his sheer military prowess and effectiveness in a corrupt and feuding Empire. Thrawn has since gained more positive opinion of Gato, offering him a position on the Chimaera if the civil war among the Zeons became too much for him to handle. Because of this, the Chiss has told the House of War to lay off on their many insults to Gato. He appreciates the gesture.
    • What insults, you say? Ever since Gato's ascension became sensational news across the Pantheon (since he decimated the 501st Legion a second time) courtesy of Kent Brockman, he has been laughed at by his entire House as a Large Ham with nothing to back it up but that obnoxious quote of his. The pilot ignored the comments since there were far more important things to attend to. Nevertheless, he still remains an object of scrutiny in the House, with some just waiting for him to slip up again.
    • A lesser point of contention among them is how Gato could have slipped up in his guard duties at the Battle of A Baoa Qu and allowed Amuro and his Gundam to penetrate enemy lines. He maintains that it was the fault of a stupid Earth Federation pilot who painted his RB-79 Ball unit to resemble the Gundam's head and messed up his squad's concentration. Most aren't buying it though.
    • Even though he isn't technically from the House of War, Scrappy-Doo hates Gato's guts as the ace soldier once taunted him for his failure to steal a mobile suit from the Pantheon Vault. He is determined to try again and stick it in Gato's face. Like with Yuudachi, Gato doesn't care all that much.
  • Though he is a human, much of the Eliksni have some amount of respect for Gato and his ability to hijack and are sure to keep the war machines they built or stole closely guarded. Those affiliated with Kell's Scourge in particular want to protect INSURRECTION PRIME from his clutches. Inversely, Eliksni affiliated with the Scorn view Gato with disgust because the majority of their brethren respect him as it is representative of the old ways they so desperately want to wipe the man from the face of the Earth.
  • First met the Lich when the Mecha Cohort had their inaugural battle with the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, with the God of Nuclear Waste as a principal commander of the forces. Is disgusted that a nuclear accident created such a revolting physical form for him, and if he had the time and leeway would go back in time to prevent his existence. Similarly hates Nekron for his desire to kill all life in the Pantheon.
  • Michael Bay offered him a role in one of his films. He isn't interested.
    • He did however visit the set incognito to see what the fuss was all about and met Duke Nukem at his trailer, who was serving as a stand-in until Bay could find a good star to play some nuclear commander deity. Don't ask. The guy uses loads of explosives, so he asked Gato if he could use his Physalis. Of course, he said no but the two make polite conversation as and when they happen to cross paths, since both are on opposite sides.
  • Once caught Rogue One when they embarked on a black-ops mission to the Garden of Thorns guarded them while they were held under detention. Engaged in a fistfight with Cassian Andor when chaos ensued amid a Rebellion rescue mission. He has since connected to Director Krennic after-the-fact as an envoy to the Death Star. The fact it was codenamed 'Stardust' has nothing to do with it. He thinks Krennic's a Smug Snake who deserves to be deprived of command of the space station but keeps these feelings to himself.
  • Intrigued by Vladimir Makharov, who sees him a potential ally given their mutual liking of nuclear-based weaponry. The two have had brunch once at the Villain Pub, but that's probably it.
  • "I have taken this field! On to the next!"

  • Honor Harrington has been in the Pantheon for as long as man has built legions of spaceships in the name of war. After a while, she decided to take a break from the Pantheon to take care of some personal business. When she returned, Honor was shocked to see the area in shambles, with no one to take up her role. She immediately reinstated herself into the Pantheon. With her empowered fleet, order was swiftly restored. She promised never to abandon her position, striving to make space safe for all to travel on.
  • Some have speculated that Thrawn had suggested for Honor Harrington to go on her vacation. With her gone, he can sabotage her temple to prevent her from re-entering the Pantheon. It may hold water as relations between the two have deteriorated ever since her return.
  • Is on good terms with both Samantha and Susan, being seen as their superior. Samantha is grateful that Honor is one of the few officers that doesn't see her as an almighty space ace.
    • As a result, she has banned any of her followers from supporting the Empire as well as the First Order. Palpatine responded by sending his troopers against her navy fleet. The two have engaged in conflict ever since.
  • As much as she is proud of her heritage, she does not think of war as a way to give others a way to profit from. As such, she has cut all contracts with Sundowner and encourages others in the House of War to do the same. The fact that he encouraged child soldiers made the decision even easier.
  • Her followers see Mal Reynalds as a thorn to their fleets, disrupting their operations with raids. Honor has agreed to uphold the law and capture the crew. Still, she feels that the man has been rightfully wronged when he served in his world. When Mal revealed what his world government did to River, she swiftly kicked them out of her temple.
  • Goes about telling Minna-Dietlinde about her experiences when she was a Commander in her fleet. Nowadays, her official rank won't even fit in a business card let alone her speeches.. Admiral is good enough for her.
  • Few people would guess that she's a cyborg. It's just that her enhancements are easy to hide from plain view. Some theorize that she got help from the God of Cyborgs himself.
  • Her armies have been instrumental in keeping the Chaos Gods contained. Thus, she works closely with the God-Emperor in their journeys. She isn't comfortable in all of their activities, but understood what he had to do in the face of his terrifying opponents.
  • While her fleets are formidable, sometimes a smaller force is necessary to surprise a superior foe. She is responsible for assigning missions Shepard and his crew to protect space. Shepard finds her much easier to cooperate with in comparison to the Illusive Man.
  • It is advised never to get in the way of Honor and Godot whenever they start one of the most legendary arguments in the Pantheon: coffee or cocoa. Their debates can go on to days. And woe be the person that tries to chime in, lest that person gets eviscerated by one side, likely ending with that person running away crying.
  • Can also be seen enjoying steak with Chie. If you're lucky, you could see them in a steak eating contest. Both have rather big appetites, making it an even affair. Still, Honor would rather have it be a kept secret, especially to her peers in the House of War.
  • Although the Federation no longer acts as a military, they still appreciate the support Honor gives them when going through dangerous swaths of space.
  • The recent Doctors have an aversion to working with military figures. This has put a strain in their team ups as of late. Honor admits he does a great job in crises, but wishes he stops being so stiff about using military force.
    • There is one enemy that she consults the Doctor with at all costs: The Master. The mad time lord has successfully outfoxed her and her fleets at every turn. Whenever the Master strikes, Honor admits she can't usually beat him/her alone.
  • Humanity in general has thank her for being in the front lines against alien invaders. The Daleks and Combine forces constantly clash with her own throughout the multiverse in the Pantheon in general. Though of lower rank than either, she manages to bounce back due to her strategic prowess and help from some individual heroes.
  • Cyberman and the Borg Queen seek out to assimilate her followers. They believe that their knowledge can help them develop better strategies to help their conquests. Honor has been aware of this and has fortified her forces to make them less vulnerable to ambushes.
  • While the Flood is already hated by virtually every other deity in the Pantheon, Honor personally lists wiping them off the face of the multiverse as one of her main goals. She works together with Master Chief to makes this a reality.
  • Originally remained neutral in the Pantheon's Forever War but eventually conceded to joining the GUAG after being forced to intervene in a battle kept off the books today. James T. Kirk has since retired his position as Commander of the GUAG's fleet operations in favour of her since she clearly has the experience and he's only The Captain.
