  • Opposed by: Tohru Adachi
  • Special Relationship: Jeanne d'Arc and Jeanne Alter
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Ritsuka Fujimaru
  • These two have a lot in common. They love murdering people, especially young children. This is good, because their logic behind their motives for murder can only be comprehended by one another since Gilles de Rais has the skill, Mental Pollution, which makes him resistant to mental manipulation but also makes it impossible for him to comprehend others that doesn't share his distorted mentality. Both of them got along pretty well thanks to their twisted minds.
    • Gilles was a French nobleman who served during the Hundred Year Wars. It was that war where he met the Holy Maiden, Jeanne d'Arc, and have loyally served her in the campaign. When she was burned in the stake, he despaired and became a serial murderer and a blasphemer until the nobility had him executed for his land.
    • Uryuu Ryuunosuke was a serial killer that resided in Fuyuki City. What seems like a normal man who does small jobs, he is a murderer that enjoys the thrill of death and cruelty. When he discovered a book that allowed summoning servants, he was inadvertently drawn into the Fourth Holy Grail War and participated as the Master of Caster.
  • None of the participants of the Fourth Holy Grail War were pleased with these two psychopaths who took advantage of the chaos by murdering young children and enjoying the thrill of the suffering of others. Artoria is the most disgusted, as not only are they both murderers of young children, but also Gilles believed that she's "Jeanne" and that he is willing to murder so that she could "remember."
    • They are not happy to find that Iskander and his master were the one to destroy their lair and "ruining their art."
    • Gilgamesh is clearly disgusted by their presence and considers them an eyesore. But the biggest offense they made is getting his swords dirty when he made his presence clear in the Fuyuki Bridge where Gilles summoned his abomination.
    • When they were on a spree of kidnapping and murdering children in the streets of Fuyuki, Uryuu possessed a bracelet created by Gilles to brainwash the young kids to lure them in a trance. But one night, their operation was ruined by a young Rin Tohsaka who went on an investigation for a missing friend. Now that they soon learned about the now older girl, both are plotting their revenge against her.
  • Gilles is "reunited" with the real Jeanne d'Arc in the Pantheon. Jeanne is horrified to seeing Gilles in what he has become, from a loyal friend to an insane murderer. The sight of seeing the Holy Virgin in his eyes caused Gilles to grovel before her and, much to Uryuu's confusion, beg for forgiveness even if his crime can never be forgotten. Though Jeanne is willing to forgive Gilles if he atone for his sins, she cannot forgive Uryuu who enables his behavior in the Fourth Holy Grail War and being a serial murderer in his own right. Uryuu understood why Gilles is so obsessed with her but still doesn't want to get her way because she was going to punish him for his crime.
    • In a singularity, where Gilles have taken possession of the Holy Grail in the aftermath of the Hundred Year War, his hatred and bane created a distortion of his vision of Jeanne, Jeanne Alter. Jeanne Alter is not happy to deal with her "father's" idolatrous ramblings, but deep down, she's graceful that he brought her into existence and wouldn't experienced what it's like to be her person. But Jeanne Alter refuses to acknowledge Uryuu as her "uncle."
  • They are both looked down upon by their successors in the Fifth Holy Grail War, Caster Medea and her master, Souichirou Kuzuki. Medea found his magical abilites both laughable and insulting as the only thing magical about him is his book, while she is a powerful sorceress at the time of the Age of Gods. Plus, she was disgusted that he and his master wants to murder people (especially young children) and was lusting over Saber, as it is she that would have Saber all to herself.
    • Meanwhile, Kuzuki completely disapproves of Ryuunosuke wasting his life by choosing to commit murder. When Ryuunosuke point out that he kills people too, he rebute as he was raised to be an assassin but wants to live a normal life.
  • With Prelati's Spellbook, Gilles could summon and control water demons from the depths of the ocean of an alternate dimension. Deep in his own lair within the Pantheon, he tried to summon some gods of the depths for the power of inflict suffering to others, which somehow summoned Cthulhu.
    • He tried summoning creatures affiliated with the Old Gods, which doesn't really affect him much as he was insane that the Old Gods has nothing to corrupt.
    • The Daedric Princes seems pleased with their vileness and made themselves clear as alternate gods to worship. As a mad god himself, Sheogorath revels at Gilles's lost mentality while Molag Bal enables their sick satisfaction of death and suffering.
    • Gilles is one of the few people that can see Saya's eldritch form without losing his mind since he was already insane and utilize Mental Pollution.
  • BANNED from the House of Faith. While obvious, Gilles is prohibited for rejecting God by slaughtering innocent children and worshipping abominable beings, Uryuu is banned because of his suggestion that God wanted suffering in his creation.
    • They are currently wanted by some of the more militant faithful as they will not tolerate heresy and insults to God. The Flaggelant views them as no different from the deranged cultists that plague the Darkest Estate and will punish them the same way he did under the Ancestor's employment. But he is specially offended by Uryuu and his belief on suffering and God, being a martyr of pain with his practices of worship to the light.
  • Wanted for child murder, they will be shot on sight if they come near the young deities of the Pantheon, as their crimes extend not on just the murder but also the mutilation and dissection of the rotting cadavers. Naturally, parents and protective adults are very furious about them, that even Batman (who dealt with his sidekicks being maimed horribly) is willing to break his "do not kill" code.
    • On one night, the two men kidnapped Nanako for one of their sick games. Naturally, the Investigation Team and her father, Ryotaro, were furious about the kidnapping and broke their way through Gilles's creatures in order to rescue the little girl. Even Adachi sided against the two strangers, despite being a murderer himself, because he cared about Nanako as well.
    • Though not a summoned servant in the Fourth Holy Grail War, they are despised by Atalanta, who loved children and wanting to wish for a world where children can be loved and accepted. She is not hesitant to shoot them in the head or even unleashing Agrius Metamorphosis to tear them to pieces.
    • Mr. Slave is disgusted by them that if he caught them trying to harm or corrupt kids in front of him, he'll shove them up his "hyper-dimensional" ass. At the same time.
  • One of the most known feature of Gilles's disgusting visage is his bulging fish eyes, which solidifies his insanity. However, according to Jeanne, she poked her eyes some times and it somehow turns him back to normal temporarily, much to Uryuu's confusion. It hurts like hell and prefer not to get his eyes, especially since one of Moe Howard's gag is poking his companion's eyes.
  • With their disturbed mind, they got along well with other insane murderers, especially if their victims are young children. They are willing to share their visceral furnitures to their "friends."
  • Despite their motive of murdering children, they seems scared of Hanzel & Gretel, at least in regards to finding victims to maim. Otherwise, the two found the murderous twins to quite entertainment and once asked them to film their carnage... and that snuff film.
  • Gilles is so insanely infatuated with Jeanne that anyone that vaguely resembles her will cause him to ramble crazily. Though only if she matches the description in his eyes, as he views neither Mordred nor Nero as anywhere near as pure as Jeanne.
    • There was one time where he tried to reach for the hand of Cassie Cage, in which according to Geras is compared to Joan of Arc. Gilles is seen leaving with almost a bullet to a head, a bubblegum, and a restraining order.

    Homestar Runner 
Homestar Michael (Stipe) Runner, The Ditzy God (Homeslice, Kevin DuBrow, Mr. Dee Williams, The Deckeman, Homestarrunner.com, Lionel Richie)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/180px-NewestHomestar_9833.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His propeller cap
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Former Fools, Being Out To Lunch, Being A Really Big Kid, Having a Hawd Time Speaking Pwopuhwy
  • Domains: Love, Luck, Stupidity, Trickery
  • Followers: Chris Griffin, T-Rex, Italy
  • Allies: Marzipan (off-and-on), Strong Bad (he thinks they're allies, anyway…), Ayumu "Osaka" Kasuga.
  • Rivals: Squirrel Girl (his greatest rival in the All-Squirrel Football League)
  • Among all of the figures in the Pantheon, Homestar Runner stands out as perhaps the single ditziest deity of them all.
  • Everybody loves the him! He's a terrific athlete!
  • During the Free Country Wars, Homestar Runner ruled over Marzistar/Homezipan alongside Marzipan, until Strong Bad was able to trick King Homestar into bringing Coachnya into the war against Marzipan's wishes. The country then dissolved into East Marzistar and East Homezipan.
  • According to Homestar, he once ate Luigi during Halloween, saying, "He tasted like mushrooms." Luigi has declined to comment, although considering he once survived being eaten by Bowser, there may be some truth to Homestar's statement.

Lesser Gods

    Abed Nadir 
Abed Nadir, God of Genre Savviness
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abed_7105.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A video camera, a fortress made out of pillows, and a room with dark walls and orange tape arranged in squares on the walls.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: The Genre Savvy, Meta Guys, Tropers and other pop culture fanatics, cosplayers, those with Ambiguous Disorders and those who those who lean heavily on the fourth wall without quite managing to break it.
  • Domains: Stoicism, Craft, Creation, Balance, Knowledge, Insight, Awareness, Analysis
  • Allies: Batman (reluctantly)
  • Enemies: The Joker, Nicholas Cage (He doesn't understand him)
  • Followers: Troy Barnes, Annie Edison.
  • He's a God now. Cool. Coolcoolcool.
  • He actually made a video about his ascension to the Pantheon for his film studies class ... one week before his ascension to the Pantheon. He's not an actual prophet or anything (although this did lead him to almost be assigned to the House of Prophecy at one point), he's just that good at recognising what tropes are going to be applicable to his current situation. Some will still approach him as an oracle, however, but those who do are usually too Genre Blind to heed his advice until it's too late. He doesn't mind; he knows as well as anyone that Cassandra Truth is a trope and that it works that way for a reason.
  • He tends to unsettle a lot of the other Gods who pass his way due to his calm, stoic and emotionless nature, his ability to predict what's going to happen to them based on the tropes they're dealing with at any given moment, and his insistence that the Pantheon itself is merely an unofficial collection of various characters from different media assigned various ranks and roles of Godhood for the amusement of those doing the ranking.
  • Although he does enjoy and dabbles in creating fiction, he tends to act best as a documentarian, and has a tendency to follow the members of this House and others with a video camera to record their actions. Even the less Genre Savvy Gods have noticed that whenever Abed's filming them, a lot of chaos tends to follow.
  • He is a huge admirer of Batman and tends to cosplay as him, which has drawn the attention and ire of the Joker. Both the Joker’s attempts to do battle with him and Batman’s attempts to discourage him have met with failure, since Abed’s just so Genre Savvy he’s aware of what they’re doing, and thinks that it's absolutely awesome. He’s also admires the Doctor, although he does believe that the Doctor’s Inspector Spacetime cosplay leaves a lot to be desired.
  • There are rumours that an evil, twisted version of Abed from a timeline where everything went wrong due to a failure to catch a dice exists somewhere out there in the multiverse, as equally versed in tropes as Abed himself but malevolent to boot, seeking to replace Abed and warp reality into a mirror of his own darkest timeline.
  • He is particularly strong at noticing when the Pantheon has undergone a Art Shift, but due to his many issues many — the other Gods included — tend to just view this as symptomatic of a breakdown on Abed's part.
  • Although Abed is one of the lesser-powered Gods, it is unwise to pick battles with him — not only does his innate knowledge of genre tropes enable him to hold his own regardless, but he is also part of a study group of True Companions who will not tolerate any one of their number being messed with.
    • That said, he considers Nicholas Cage his Achilles' Heel. He can figure out every actor and person in the pantheon, but when asked if Nicholas Cage is a good or bad actor, all he came up with is a spot on hammy imitation and the sad conclusion that "people are random and meaningless." It took a good 2 weeks of therapy to get his head on straight after that, though his friend Shirley did give a hand.

    Aegon the Unworthy 
Aegon Targaryen, The Fourth Of His Name, The God Who Doesn't Think Things Through (Aegon the Unworthy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aegon_iv.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His crown, huge and heavy with red gold and dragon points
  • Alignment: Stupid Evil
  • Portfolio: One Of The Worst Kings Of Westeros, Being a Jerk To Self-Destructive Levels, Really Gets Around, Source of The Blackfyre Rebellions, Posthumous Character, The Hedonist, From Good Looking To Bloated Monarch, Big Brother Bully, Didn't Think This Through, Wash Her and Bring Her to My Bed, King on His Deathbed, Hedonism Born Of Parental Abandonment, Fat Idiot
  • Domains: Lust, Royalty, Vices, Family(abused)
  • Allies: Caligula, Smaug, Hansel and Gretel, Kinzo Ushiromiya, Nikolai Dmitri Bulygin, Billy, Zapp Brannigan, his favorite bastard Daemon Blackfyre
  • Vitriolic Best Buds with: Glenn Quagmire, Panty Anarchy, Zeus
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Sigmund Freud
  • Additional relationship with: Aemon, Rhaegar, Aerys and Daenerys Targaryen, Robert, Stannis and Renly Baratheon, Jon Snow (descendantsnote ), Aegon and Rhaenys Targaryen (ancestors)
  • Enemies: Oogie Boogie, The Nohr Royal Siblings, The Kasugano twins, Mad Moxxi, Dokuro Mitsukai, Hera, Princess Bubblegum, Zelda, Lancelot
  • Opposed by: Most of Westeros, the intelligent members of the Leadership and Royalty
  • Worships: Slaanesh
  • Aegon Targaryen, Fourth of His Name, was the eleventh Targaryen king. Son of Viserys II, he would start out promising and attractive young prince, skilled with lance and sword. However he suffered from a Fatal Flaw; zero foresight and the inability to rule himself. His petty wiles and lusts would devastate the realm, perverting the law and upon legitimizing his bastards start a series of civil war that would trouble Westeros for decades. By his death, he is regarded as one of the worst kings to ever rule Westeros, becoming known as Aegon the Unworthy.
  • Though his descendant Robert Baratheon is quite the manwhore, the Unworthy makes him seem chaste. He would take nine mistresses, in addition to sleeping with countless other women(he reckons 900 in total). He has fourteen known bastards, though probably dozens more unacknowledged. It'd get to the point men would get favors from him by pimping out women and even their own daughters. To continue with his whoring, he has hired Nikolai Dmitri Bulygin. The more women he gets him, the more he'll look the other way and do whatever he wants.
    • Can be seen going on ventures for women with Zapp Brannigan and Charlie Harper.
  • Much of the disasters of his reign come from his unchecked libido. He would continue sleeping with opposing families, giving away valuable dragon eggs for sex and hiring the wrong people. He also used wooden-siege "dragons" filled with wildfire, gave the sword Blackfyre to his bastard and other stupidly bitter things. Even Glenn Quagmire, Panty and Zeus, who like his lustiness and go on adventures in the House of Lust, believe that he's going too far. His response to the pantheon's criticisms? Doesn't matter, had sex.
  • Some speculate that he was outright trying to be the worst king ever, but it's most likely he just didn't give a shit since its all about him.
  • Is on poor terms with the House of Family, given how much of an utter dick he was to his. He constantly bullied his brother Aemon despite guarding him, treated his sister-wife cruelly and consistently butted heads with his responsible son Daeron. He'd much rather prefer his bastard Daemon Blackfyre, and the Blackfyre Rebellion was in part a spiteful "fuck you" to his heir. The Nohr Siblings hate him quite a lot, being much like their own perverted, cruel father Garon.
  • Speculated to have poisoned his own father. This remains unconfirmed, but he is an indirect kinslayer by cuckolding the prior king Baelor the Blessed, who fasted to death upon learning his wife had a kid with another man. Also speculated that one of his mistresses was a child he had with a previous mistress.
  • Assumes that a lot of white-haired deities in the pantheon are his bastards, given he has a lot of them. He mainly assumed that the twincestous Kasugano twins were his, but they hate the Unworthy for being abusive to his sister-wife and generally being a terrible person. He's had more success with Hansel and Gretel, if only because he enables their batshit craziness.
  • Tried to make Princess Bubblegum and Zelda his tenth and eleventh mistress, but they found him repellent and kicked his ass. Later he thought he could tame Dokuro Mitsukai, only to be proven completely off the mark.
  • Most gods believe that he and Mad Moxxi would get along swimmingly, however they were quickly proven wrong due to how much of a hypocrite he was. Despite being a massive philanderer, he reacted violently when Ser Terrence Toyne broke his vow of celibacy with his mistress Bethany Bracken; he dismembered the poor kingsguard while making Bethany watch, before killing her and her father. Were he to sleep with Mad Moxxi, he would likely try to "reserve" her and probably try killing her in a mercurial fit.
  • Would eventually die from flesh worms, eating him alive and leading him into great pain that even the milk of the poppy could not deal with. As such, he despises all worms and bugs, particularly Oogie Boogie.
  • Much of Aegon's hedonism can be explained by his background; his father was often busy and he had a Missing Mom, so his lust could be part of a coping mechanism. It's possible that with women he was looking for a mother's comfort. Sigmund Freud is trying to study it, but otherwise they do not get along.
  • Was nothing short of elated to learn of the House of Dragons, and became interested in Smaug's riches. Smaug seems to tolerate him, mainly to use the king as an Unwitting Pawn and giving away valuables to him for maidens. He also approves of Kinzo Ushiromiya's crazy wills, and actually agrees with the insane logic that Billy has.
  • While officially the ancestor to all the pantheon's Targaryens(sans Aegon the Conqueror and his sister-wives), he insists that Daeron the Good is not his but rather from an affair between his sister-wife Naerys and his brother, Aemon the Dragonknight. Rather unlikely, given their own virtuous nature and he likely started it to disown his competent son. Aegon would argue that if the pious Lancelot and Elaine can break their vows and father Galahad, so could Aemon. He then decided to blame Lancelot and attack him in some vain, stupid way to get back at his brother.
  • Stannis hates the fact he is descended from Aegon, and steers clear of his ancestor.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/majimay5.jpg
  • Theme Song: One-Eyed Slugger, One-Eyed Dancer, and One-Eyed Assassin or Alternatively the Majima Construction Anthem
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His eyepatch crossed with a baseball bat.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Ax-Crazy Anti-Hero Breakout Character, Uses the Slugger style as well as knives, Recurring Boss, Consummate Professional, Eyepatch of Power, Blood Knight, despite this is also a Jerk with a Heart of Gold and Friend to All Children.
  • Domains: Strength, War, Chaos, Knowledge, City
  • Herald: Nishida, his long suffering right hand man.
  • Allies: Kazuma Kiryu, Phoenix Wright, Ryu, Ken Masters, Taiga Fujimura, Raku Ichijou and Chitoge Kirisaki
  • Rivals: Ann Takamaki, Heihachi, Junpei Iori, The Council of Four
  • Enemies: M. Bison
  • Respects: Babe Ruth
  • Admired by: Makoto Niijima
  • Feared by: The Judge
  • Annoyed by: Arsene Lupin
  • Complicated Relationship: Claude
  • One day, Kiryu was walking down the street when his head was smacked into a wall by a baseball bat. The impact and weapon choice told him exactly who it was. As if on cue, a laugh was heard as a man with an eyepatch egged him on to fight him. After a grueling fight, the man shook his hand, stating he needed to make sure that it truly was his rival that was in the Pantheon. Shortly afterwards, Goro Majima had completed his temple, ready to take on any challenge.
  • Known as the Mad Dog of Shimano, he is well known for a tendency for violence and a lust for power. And yet... he can be calm and amiable when needed. His professionalism allowed him access to the House of Commerce where he maintains a solid business. Unlike Kiryu, he isn't as keen in helping others though nowadays he's more likely to work with him than against him. That courtesy does not extend to his criminal lackeys, who he won't hesitate to beat up for failing him.
  • Considers the fact that no one has laid claim to the title of Yakuza to be unacceptable. Unfortunately, he himself was disqualified for not consistently associating himself with the group. He hopes to find someone worth of the title.
  • His style of moral compass may be confusing to many, Kiryu summed it up nicely; he only truly respects those who can defeat him in some way. Those who can't are considered weak in his eyes and subject to be ransacked when he felt like it.
  • His most well-known weapon of choice has always been the baseball bat. He has shown great versatility with the sports item. While he was bummed for not getting into consideration for the title, he did like one aspect of this: he gets to challenge the one holding the title. That's exactly what he did when he showed up to Junpei's temple dropping the battered body of high priest Casey Jones (who was still alive albeit barely). After a skirmish, the rest of the SEES squad broke up the fight and swore to protect him from future brawls.
    • Surprisingly, he hasn't challenged Babe Ruth to a fight. Majima agreed that the legend was probably better at playing baseball than him. That and he would totally kick his ass in an actual fight.
  • Is known for donning a number of disguises in order to get close enough to attack Kiryu... without caring much about the disguises actually working. This lack of care has earned him Lupin's ire.
  • Was involved with a merging of worlds where he along with Kiryu teamed up to find out who was responsible. It was there where he had some encounters with various gods.
    • Even before the he saved Phoenix Wright from a zombie attack, he was well-acquainted with the Crusading Lawyer when Mr. Wright helped acquit him of a crime he didn't commit. He still thought that the case would have gone more quickly if he was allowed to punch the judge in the face, but appreciated the help. The Judge quickly slapped a restraint order to keep him safe.
    • Loves that Ryu and Ken are always eager to test their skills in brawls whenever they feel like it. The three have been on close terms ever since they helped him and Kiryu thrash that bastard M. Bison for the Kamurocho outbreak.
  • Quite a few of the Phantom Thieves have taken an interest of the man, seeing how popular his adventures are. He'd received some admiration from Makoto, who had a surprisingly accurate depiction of one of his adventures. He was happy to deliver the story of his other adventures... but left out the name of the blind woman he protected. Having the same name left things awkward with him.
    • Recognizing the man, Ann challenged him to a dance off. What made things even more outrageous, she was wearing his iconic outfit. Smiling, Majima accepted the challenge. When time came of the challenge, Ann was shocked to find out he decked himself up with her own suit. This wasn't the first time he dressed like a woman. The two did manage to enjoy their dance off either way.
  • Majima wanted to know just how good Taiga was at Kendo, so he challenged her to such a duel. While he managed to beat her, he was willing to teach her how to better defend herself due to her association with the Yakuza.
  • Despite his penchant for violence, he has a way with children that has both sides laughing their asses off. In general, he is rather protective of kids and would never try to hurt them. Those that do so in his presence... one better hope that they have insurance to cover the upcoming beatdown.
    • He's especialy fond of Raku, the son of Yakuza crime lord. Impressed with his bouts in a fight, Majima offered to teach the kid in how to become a better fighter.
  • He was warned about the one known as Claude, someone who took down an entire Mafia organization just to get his revenge on his ex-girlfriend. He thought Claude had a justified cause due to being left for dead, but the more he knew about him, the more Majima decided his rage has made any lasting alliance with the man impossible. He's still willing to teamup with Claude in any interesting fights, but has stopped short of considering him an ally. The God of Silent Protagonists figured it would be best not to get on this man's bad side.
  • A house for Anti Heroes enticed the man, and he paid a visit shortly after his ascension. It was there where he met the Council of Four. There he set a challenge to fight all of them. That's right, all of them. It didn't take long for him to get stomped at the curb. After which he responded by... clapping at their success. He needed to know if they were worthy of the titles. Mr. Freeze was appalled by that logic, but the others shook his hands in respect. They now have Majima as an ally among their ranks.
  • Majima leads a small band of powerful followers that he refers to as "Majima Construction" to take on actual construction work for other members of the Pantheon. Majima's herald Nishida is often seen spreading around flyers for part time employment. Many other deities are shocked to learn that Majima Construction is a 100% legit construction company instead of a front. Many gods from the House of Combat actually sign on for a few shifts every once in a while once they learn that, inevitably, someone tough will always attack a Majima Construction work site trying to take it over.

Demigods

    Lieutenant Columbo 
Lieutenant Columbo, God of Obfuscating Stupidity and Exiting One-Liners
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/colombo_falk_1129.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A rumpled beige trenchcoat, cigar and faded green Peugeot 203 convertible.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Investigators Who Are Much, Much Smarter than They Appear, Finding the One Loose Thread in a Well Thought-Out Lie And Slowly Unravelling It, Getting Wrongdoers to Trip Themselves Up.
  • Domains: Law, Knowledge, Good, Trickery
  • Followers: Vila Restal, Robert Goren, John Steed, Brenda Johnson
  • Allies: Patrick Jane, The Doctor, Perry Mason, Miss Marple, Judge Dredd, Shawn Spencer, John Crichton
  • Enemies: Manfred von Karma, Professor Moriarty, Jack the Ripper, Hannibal Lecter Revolver Ocelot, David Xanatos, Norma Desmond
  • Teech-Clenched Teamwork: Dirty Harry, Travis Bickle
  • Believe it or not, this man might be the best detective in the Pantheon. Might be. No one's really sure. He certainly doesn't act like it most of the time. Don't let the antics of this police detective fool you, though. Many gods and mortals have been tricked into thinking they had nothing to worry about, only realizing too late that he already has them trapped. Columbo has proven to be an invaluable asset in the House of Justice.
  • If someone has been unlawfully accused of a crime, he turns to the services of defense attorney Perry Mason. Together, they form a formidable team few bad guys are capable of stopping.
  • Many younger deities have used his playbook in order to trip up their foes. Patrick Jane is among his most famous pupils before ascending himself.
    • While she ascended later than him, Miss Marple may well be the only deity that has been using the playbook longer than him! Nevertheless, the two respect each other immensely. Miss Marple is not bound by the rules of the law and can her her hands dirty where he cannot.
    • While there may not be many as famous as him, there's another who even he can't figure out if he's faking. Phony Psychic Shawn Spencer out does him in terms of playing the Genius Ditz (mainly the ditz part). It doesn't help that Shawn implies that he is indeed a psychic. He remains impressed with his detective skills and helps him out whenever he needs it.
    • Another pupil of his is Gibbs, God of Making Criminals Sweat. While Perry Mason originated the technique and Columbo mastered it, it was Gibbs who made it an art form. He helped grant Gibbs his divine powers soon after. He's also tried to convince Gibbs to give Tony some slack, to little effect.
  • While not in the House of Justice, he frequently resides there to help the gods there interrogate criminals. Dredd placed Lestrade in charge of dealing with Columbo's inquiries. Well known for helping Holmes as well as a number of other detectives in the Pantheon, he tries his best to decipher what the lieutenant is trying to do.
  • If there is one person capable of thwarting his investigations, it's Manfred von Karma. The Amoral Attorney has proven to be an effective prosecutor, sending many of the innocent in jail. He also seems to be one of the few who are not fazed with his clumsy nature.
  • Revolver Ocelot has also proven to be an counter for the villains. Even shutting down his operations turned out to be a part of a greater scheme of his. It was revealed to be due to a truce with Xanatos. While usually rivals, the two saw the potential threat of the lieutenant and decided to work together to put him out of their hairs.
  • Is currently in the process of training his followers against the counterattacks of Hannibal Lecture. Many have fallen to his sharp tongue, capable of driving men to suicide. Columbo himself is cautious against the man, as Hannibal isn't as easily swayed by his demands.
  • Moriarty proposed a document specifically warning his followers of the antics of Columbo, lest they too underestimate him. He hired Tarquin to add a section of his minions book just to warn them of the man. Truly the bane of evil masterminds.
  • The same goes to Jack the Ripper, who saw many of his kind fall for similar tricks. He hopes to add the lieutenant to the latest list of his victims.
  • Resident vigilante cop Dirty Harry doesn't usually have the patience for the lieutenant's methods, even when they work most of the time. As such, he only helps out in capturing suspects when Columbo thinks he can trick them into confessing.
  • Tasked himself to keep watch over Norma Desmond. After her first Villainous Breakdown, he suspects she would snap again at any time. Despite her objections to keeping her watch, he genuinely wants her to reform and kickstart her career. He even drops his act to try and look more sincere to her. Norma doesn't think she needs it, believing she just needs to expose herself more to the audience.
  • While he thinks Travis' actions were noble in theory, he doesn't approve of assassination without the due process of law. Any situation that these two work together will be strained at best.

    Curious George 
George, God of Curiosity (Curious George)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9d42a7f581d4b54aa26f1657e6defcb1.jpg
  • Demigod (Lesser God when tagging along with The Man with the Yellow Hat)
  • Symbol: The words "Curious George" written in a yellow and red font. Alternatively, a pair of binoculars in a yellow background.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good. VERY Chaotic. (Though some believe he eventually mellowed out into a borderline still ever-curious Neutral Good)
  • Portfolio: Really Curious Monkeys, Cheerful Baby Monkey... Maybe a little too much, Naïvety, Having Art Shift Imagine Spots, Being Allowed to Wander around by Himself By The Man with the Yellow Hat, Quickly Messing up Everything But somehow Escaping from Troubles
  • Domains: Curiosity, Mammals, Innocence, Childhood, The Color Yellow, Edutainment Shows
  • Herald: The Man In The Yellow Hat
  • Followers: Yokoi, Beastbox, Bode, Pandora, The Curiosity Core
  • Allies: Almost all of the non-Evil aligned Children Gods (But especially Ash Ketchum and The Cutie Mark Crusaders), Taokaka, Dee Dee, Pinkie Pie, Byakuya Kuchiki, Eru Chitanda
  • Opposes: Any god with Nazi sentiments (Surprisingly enough)
  • Nobody actually understands how George actually got into the Pantheon. He simply wandered into the various Houses, exploring every single place he managed to get into, wreaking havoc all over the place until he was told to stop. Instant Godhood.
    • Dee Dee, who requested the position first, was rejected because a) She would mess around the House of Technology and maybe even destroy it and b) George is a literal Curious Monkey anyways. But she was allowed to stay as his High Priestess until she was given a title of her own.
    • Inmediately after George's ascension, The Man with the Yellow Hat apologised for any mess George provoked while he wasn't around. He was allowed to stay as long as he kept taking care of the mischievous monkey.
  • To the displeasure of everyone, his temple was placed in the House of Knowledge. On his part, he was happy to be there. He quickly started reading the books from the Children Section of the Library with the Man with the Yellow Hat.
  • Once, George went to the House of Commerce and stole Ash Ketchum's hat. He gave it back after a while and quickly became friends with him. The Man with the Yellow Hat has Ash on speed dial after that incident in case he needs help taking care of George in parts of the pantheon he cannot reach as a non-combatant non-deity. He is actually grateful to find someone who can understand George as well as he can.
  • George loves playing with people as cheerful as he is and for that reason he has become friends with most of the more energetic gods and the younger gods.
    • Pinkie Pie, for example, became one of his first friends inmediately after the Welcome Party she threw for him. It helps that, unlike many other gods who dread those parties, he actually enjoyed himself. And she's volunteered to babysit George despite having a rocky start the first time around. But after she had a crying fit (not deliberate, honest!), George took pity in Pinkie and started behaving a little more.
    • He also loves playing with the Cutie Mark Crusaders, specially when he feels like taking a new job. The fillies also like joining in his curiosity-driven adventures.
    • Due to George's many trips to the House of Family to play with the younger gods, The Man with the Yellow Hat soon requested for someone to help him supervise the energetic monkey. Byakuya soon took the job. This was quite unexpected for the rest of the members of the House of Family, but not to his fellow Bleach Gods. Byakuya's Zanpakuto Senbonzakura and even Byakuya actually happen to understand the baby monkey's childish curiosity.
  • All of the Gods were surprised to find out that George was against the Nazi Gods. According to an unknown source, it all started with a trip he made to Paris…
    • Eru Chitanda was later confirmed to be the unknown source.
  • The most sane Gods dreaded the day Eru Chitanda and George would meet each other, since they didn't know and did NOT want to know what would happened if the Constantly Curious goddess and the More Curious God joined forces. To their surprise, Eru and George already met each other, as soon as she heard the news of a fellow curious god, she inmediately went to his temple to greet him. Many questions to George and his owner later, she was the first to find out about his trip to Paris.
    • Eru also happens to be quite good at managing the monkey, putting his curiosity to good purposes such as looking for the clues of mysteries. She also likes his enthuasiasm, that reminded her of Satoshi. She has decided George should be her Non-Human Sidekick. Oreki's response to all of this is obvious

    Indiana Jones 
Henry Walton Jones Jr., God of Instinct (Indiana Jones, The Man with the Hat, Indy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2AF00BCD71_365.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His Fedora and a Bullwhip
  • Theme Song: You know the one
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Whips, Dangerous Archaeology, Spur-of-the-Moment Plans, Last-Second Escapes, Named After the Dog, fears of snakes (Trope Namer)
  • Domain: Good, Luck, Investigation, Travel, Ruins
  • Superiors: Steven Spielberg, George Lucas
  • Followers: Daring Do, Shuuya, Judau Ashta, Nikolai Dante, Victor Cachat
  • Heralds: Marion Ravenwood and Henry "Mutt" Jones III, his wife and son
  • Allies: Ashley J. Williams, The Punisher, Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, Malcolm Reynolds, Rick Blaine, Hellboy, Steve Rogers/Captain America, John McClane, Han Solo, Rick Deckard, Simon Belmont, Zorro ... honestly there's too many heroes to count.
  • Friendly Rivals: Lara Croft, Nathan Drake, Oerba Yun Fang
  • Enemies: Lesale Deathbringer, Chuck Norris, Zoran Lazarević, Johann Schmidt/Red Skull, Nikita Dragovich, Adenoid Hynkel
  • Fears: Apophis, Orochimaru, Lord Voldemort
  • Annoyed by: Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage
  • Henry Walton Jones Jr. may look like a lowly professor who part-times as an archeologist, but don't let his profession fool you. He has overcome insurmountable odds through various countries around the world. His entry into the Pantheon increased his scope to include multiple worlds. All of this wouldn't be possible without his incredible ability to go through situations without any plan to help him.
  • Is not just the Patron Saint of adventures. Millions of people from all sorts of sports depend on him in all sorts of situations. When a relative newbee is able to pull off an upset, they usually turn to him for thanks.
  • Is determined to have nothing to do with either Orochimaru or Voldemort, due to a pathological fear of snakes. Apophis' recently ascension did not help as the Egyptian deity has proven to be every bit as sinister as he imagines snakes to be.
  • Never forgets his hat. Hell, don't even try to ruin his hat. There is no plan in the world that could ever save you from his wrath.
  • He's also hoping to find an opportunity to pay back Chuck Norris for that bone shattering kick. Some wondered if he could have survived such a blow (most don't).
  • Would rather that his fanbase would put his later movie behind them. Despite the good reviews, fans did not like the direction his creators went with him. There is hope that the next movie coming up will patch up his fractured base.
  • There is some overlap between the archeologist and John McClane. Both have an uncanny ability to ruin even the best laid out plans. That combined with Indy's insistence of going with the flow makes it nearly impossible for any villain to put a stop to their followers.
  • You would not think that he would be at home among the Library's shelves, but between the giant bookworms and lumbering thesauri, there is plenty of adventure to be had. Somewhere, the Holy Grail sits forgotten on a shelf, and some day, Indy will find it. Besides, 70% of archaeology is done in the library anyway.
  • Is in an eternal battle with Lara Croft and Nathan Drake over hidden artifacts. He initially held a more antagonistic relationship, berating them for keeping loot to themselves rather than to the public. But he has grown to depend on them for bigger discoveries over time. Nowadays you are more likely to see them work together than against each other. It's only a question of who keeps the prize. Indy admits both rivals can easily kick his ass, but he makes up for it with his insane luck.
    • They have often brought along their own enemies to deal with. Zoran offered to off Nathan Drake after the bald villain's ascension, but he refused. Indy later helped Croft break the blockage Zoran developed over Drake's temple. He has had to fend off against his forces ever since.
    • A lesser known rivalry has formed between him and Oerba Yun Fang. Things can still get heated if the prize is expensive enough.
  • Scoundrel aside, he gets along fairly well with Han Solo. And not just because they look alike. Solo depends on Indy for applying some of his strategies for escaping. In return, the smuggler gives Indy clues on the next find.
    • Much like Han, Malcolm loves to think on his feet, thanking the archeologist multiple times for making those close shaves. With that said, not robbing his items seemed like a good enough way to return the favor.
    • Another deity who looks like Indy (and gets beaten up just about the same amount), Rick Deckard, got along with him even if he's a complete cynic.
  • In some other life, it is rumored that he was a great smuggler who fell in love with a rebel princess. He's not all that sure himself. Part of the reason he rarely leaves the shelves is because Jabba the Hutt has something against Indy, and wants to talk to him. Indy says "He's a wonderful human being, but I'll pass." Jabba has been banned from this House since that incident with the gravy-d pages, so he never shows up here.
  • Has aided Ash Williams in keeping the Necronomicon safe from dark forces. This is probably one of the few things he doesn't want in a museum. Is currently negotiating placing it in the Treasures section.
  • It should be noted that Indiana Jones HATES Nazis, more than most deities in the Pantheon. Few groups have been more of a pain in the ass to deal with. They all adhere to the Red Skull, who has become increasingly frustrated with Indy's efforts to thwart his acquisition of powerful artifacts.
    • Impressed with his handling with Nazis in Casablanca, he struck a friendship with Rick Blaine. It's never too late to denounce them in his book.
    • Some of his greatest friendships with punching nazis have been with Cap and Hellboy, the former for thwarting his archnemesis and the later for occasionally helping him out navigating certain temples.
    • Communists are low on his likable list ever since his latest adventure. Nikita Dragovich has taken a different approach. Brainwashing the archeologist for his bidding could make him a valuable asset.
    • It should be noted that Indy is not amused with the portrayal of Adenoid Hynkel. He doesn't believe in normalizing dictators' behaviors.
  • Was the hallmark of the following philosophy: "If you see an idiot displaying his swordplay and itching for a fight, just grab a gun and shoot him."
  • Looked in interest at how The Cinema Snob dressed as him during the hunt for Malachite's hand, especially at how Snob could only fight with a belt, instead of the trademark whip.
  • There is a so-far unfounded rumor that he, Samurai Jack, and the Mane Six embarked on an adventure together. Indy is saying nothing on the matter.
  • Is recently seen drinking beer and playing pool with one Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, who also courageously stormed an underground warren and single-handedly destroyed an army (in her case, of monsters) to protect children.

    John Crichton 
John Crichton, God of Smart Folks Who Look Dumb
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crichton_john_1923.jpg
  • Theme Song: Farscape Theme
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The Moya
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good personified
  • Portfolio: Action Survivor, Fish out of Water, Obfuscating Stupidity, Southern-Fried Genius and Gentleman, Hot Scientist, Genius Ditz, Audience Surrogate, Badass Bookworm, eventual Stranger in a Familiar Land
  • Domains: Chaos, Good, Knowledge, Madness, Travel
  • Allies: Captain Kirk, The Doctor, Lieutenant Columbo, Malcolm Reynolds, Indiana Jones, Leon (Dead or Alive), Samantha Carter, Jean Grey
  • Enemies: Daleks, The Combine
  • Admired by: Xander Harris
  • It was only a few years ago that John Crichton was a mere astronaut studying the nature of wormholes. It was only when he fell into one that he started his journey into greatness. Finding a crew crazy enough to follow him, he has amassed a stunning amount of accolades in the new world he made a home of. And it was enough for the God of Space to officially give him a spot in the Pantheon. He later thanked Kirk for the invitation.
  • The Doctor doesn't seem to mind. He was fascinated at the human's work on wormholes. He was also intrigued how well Crichton was able to be clued in on his ideas. A spot as a companion could have happened if Crichton didn't have a crew to take care of.
  • Proved to be one of Columbo's most gifted students in the art of Obfuscating Stupidity. Many don't even know that he's a scientist until they enter his temple. Some say even Columbo doesn't know, only letting him in to find out the truth.
  • His temple contains many memorabilia from Earth. While he remains fond of the planet and is willing to protect it, he has long since rejected it as his home.
  • As stated before, most of his crew are just as crazy as he is, only sticking around because he seems to be the only one in their galaxy that knows what he's doing. He is most fond of Aeryn, who he learned how to fight and use weapons. It didn't take long before they became a Battle Couple. With that said, threaten Aeryn's life at your own peril. Crichton is guaranteed to make your life a living hell for doing so.
  • As a fellow pilot, Malcolm Reynolds respects the astronaut for managing such a raucous crew. They have a blast teaming up whenever the time requires it. As a friend, he thinks Crichton is batshit insane. He has no love for the military, but to use that to create a wormhole is insane even for him.
  • His arrival is another blow for evil-aligned aliens everywhere. He may not like Earth in its current state, but he won't let it fall to invaders. Many have been struggling to counter his ability to deliver flummoxing schemes to come out on top. His archnemesis calls it a 'brutal elegance' that makes him so unpredictable.
  • His ability to make things up as he goes has impressed Indiana Jones. He even hitched a ride on their ship in search of an ancient artifact. It was pretty obvious that there was no stopping those two from getting it. In the end, Indy took some articles on Crichton's wormhole theory to take a look for himself.
  • Long has Xander hoped to find a Pop-Cultured Badass, one who could deliver beatdowns as well as deliver quips. He has finally found one in John Crichton. Expect a lot of pop culture references whenever these two meet, and they make sure to meet often. All while the rest of the Scoobies and the crew of the Moya roll their eyes. The two hope to find someone who could represent people like them in the Pantheon.
  • And to think that their story was close to going unresolved. It was only a constant demand from fans that saved the show and their lives from cancellation and death respectively, giving the crew a reasonable conclusion.. They give Leon alms givings as a result.
  • Is a big fan of Samantha Carter's work, even when she keeps insisting it wasn't a big deal. Luckily, he is just as interested in her work as a scientist. She proved to be just as interested in his theory of wormholes. Both crew are wary of keeping those two together for too long, lest they end up sprawled on the ground after staying up the night.
  • He may as well have a life-time membership with Jean Grey's temple with the amount of times it appeared he died on his show, including the first time his show got cancelled. It's safe to say that he's a difficult man to keep dead.
