Pantheon / Miscellaneous Flora

Go To

Here lies the greenhouse of the House of Plants, a place to study and grow any and every type of plant under the sun. It's also a place to grow fruit and vegetables for the House of Food to enjoy. While not plants, fungi are welcome and grow outside of the greenhouse, where the ground is wet and there is shade for them to use.

Pumpkins dominate the market during October. Candles and carving knives are sold separately.

    Biollante 
Biollante, Deified Plant-Animal Hybrid (Biolante, Biolannte, Biolantte)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Biollante_6035.Jpg
Rose Biollante 
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: A sihoulette of herself
  • Theme Music: Her theme from Godzilla: Unleashed
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Anti-Villain, Healing Factor, Lightning Bruiser, Planimal, Mix-and-Match Critter, Combat Tentacles
  • Domains: Monsters, Plants, Teeth
  • Allies: Poison Ivy, Fate Testarossa, Rei Ayanami, Yuuka Kazami, Grass type Pokemon
  • Enemies: Godzilla (Maybe Teeth Clenched Team Work on the rare occasion), King Ghidorah, Gigan, Hedorah, Mordremoth, Ragnaros the Firelord, Mesogog
  • Biollante was created via the cells of a rose, Godzilla, and a scientist's deceased daughter. This particular kaiju has two forms: a relatively peaceful rose in her first form and a towering behemoth that's more aggresive and toothy for her second form (not to say that her first form isn't toothy; after all, her tentacles have teeth on them regardless of her form).
  • There's a debate on what's the genetic relationship between her and Godzilla. While their own universe don't consider them related in a family sense, others would disagree. Though, whether they can be consider siblings or parent/child is still a debated issue.
    • So far, Godzilla and Biollante haven't interact with one another. Some think this is a good thing since the last time they met, they were savagely ripping against one another. However, they can put their difference aside when facing evil Kaijus like King Ghidorah, Gigan and Hedorah.
  • When some deities look into Biollante's history, many were confuse on how she still existed. You see, people from the Future transported a pre-radioactive Godzilla out of the place he would of been radiated. If that happen, she wouldn't exist as Godzilla got radiated much later then when she would be born. Yet she still exist regardless. In fact, there's even theories she was the cause of Space Godzilla when her body dissolved and floated into space.
  • Members of the House of Metal & Minerals have tried to bar Biollante from entering their temple. That's because she always spread spores that cause the desolate landscape to grow flowers. It's unknown why she does that. Though, it could be a desire base on her father's wish to bring life to desert lands.
  • Biollante became very close friends with both Fate Testarossa and Rei Ayanami since all three are artificial beings of a person's love ones. However, compare to Fate and Rei, Biollante never had to deal with a abusive parent.
  • Poison Ivy has shown sympathy towards the plant Kaiju. Ivy is also one of the few deity to be able to communicate fully with Biollante since she is part plant as well. She also became close to Yuuka Kazami. Yuuka does care for Biollante like any other plants. And because of that, she willing to unleash wrath to anyone who would hurt her.
  • Just like Godzilla, Mesogog has shown great interest in her genetic material. She wants to gain samples to use for his new Mutation Army.
  • Like many deities who are plants or are connected to them, Biollante despises Ragnaros the Firelord. The Fire elemental dismisses her as another worthless insect and is planning to burn her down.
  • Mordremoth wanted to assimilate Biollante into the Mordrem as one of his minions, so he sent a small horde of Mordrem and one of his commanders to capture Biollante for him. It is not known what the outcome of the battle would have been, but it was interrupted by Godzilla's arrival, forcing the remaining Mordrem to retreat.

    Cetrion 
Cetrion, Elder Goddess Of Plant Hair (Lady Cetrion, Elder Goddess of Virtue, Guardian of Life, The Light To Shinnok's Darkness, Steward Of Kronika's Vision, Nature Girl, Mama's Girl - both by Sonya Blade, Your Holiness - by Kano)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cetrion_mk11.png
 
  • Greater Goddess (Overdeity if she possesses the Hourglass)
  • Symbol: Herself, Surrounded By Water, Ice, Fire, And Rocks
  • Theme Song: Kronika's Hourglass
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Boobs of Steel, Combat Stilettos, Elemental Powers (including Plants And Ice), Fertile Feet, Light And Pure Is Not Good, Mother Nature, Mommy's Girl, Ms. Fanservice, Nature Is Not Nice, Physical God, Sizeshifter, Undying Loyalty
  • Domains: Light and Virtue, Nature, Betrayal, Family
  • Allies:
  • Enemies:
  • Targeted By: Every deified Bounty Hunter in the Pantheon (her bounty is $999,999,999!)
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: with Caius Ballard (just like Mom)
  • Pitied By: Satsuki Kiryuin
  • Interested In: Heather Mason
  • Conflicting Opinion With: YHVH
  • Shinnok. Has A. Sister? Kronika, sure, but a sister?? As Cassie Cage had once famously stated upon discovering this fact, "There's like, no family resemblance." Thanks to Kronika and Shinnok, Cetrion has made her way to the Pantheon.
  • With Cetrion's ascension. Kronika's scheme is made clear: she wishes both Shinnok and Cetrion to wage an eternal war against each other, Light versus Darkness, in order to restore the balance between the realms. The Main House immediately told Kronika that was not to happen in the Pantheon.
  • Cetrion despises those who do harm to their family. She especially has it in for Erron Black, as he shot his own father (despite Black claiming that the sonoabitch had it coming). And as confirmed by Cassie Cage, his relationship with his mother wasn't any better. Kratos is a close second due to his war against the Olympians. Her devotion to family is seen especially when carrying out Kronika's will.
    • But, despite her devotion to her mother, even Cetrion has her limits. She's on the fence regarding YHVH, but chooses to hold back. After all, the most important thing to her is honoring one's parents.
    • Speaking of Kratos, Atreus called Cetrion out when she criticized his father and his vendetta against Zeus and his relatives, pointing out that Cetrion herself murdered her fellow Elder Gods on Kronika's orders. Since then, Cetrion found herself at odds with the angry Spartan and his half-blooded son
    • Speaking of Erron Black, he has confirmed that the bounty on Cetrion's head is a jaw-dropping $999,999,999! Of course, this puts Cetrion on the radar of every deified bounty hunter in the Pantheon.
  • Once reached out to Ororo Munroe and Pamela Isley in order to recruit more numbers for Kronika's New Era, with the promises of reuniting with T'Challa and making Earth a New Eden respectively. Unfortunately, Cetrion's reputation proceeded her, being Shinnok's sister and being the one responsible for murdering the Elder Gods. That, and Kronika isn't a Titaness of her word, as her past actions have shown.
    • Despite being a paragon of light and virtue, Cetrion is not on good terms with Gaia and Captain Planet. Maybe it's because Cetrion is a willing participant in Kronika's scheme to undo the realms. Either way, whenever Cetrion visits the House of Nature, the other gods watch her every move.
  • If the fact that she sides with Kronika doesn't piss Raiden off, it's the fact that not only did Cetrion wiped out the Elder Gods in a decapitation strike, but also the fact that Cetrion claimed that both her and Frost assassinated Fujin, the God of Wind. Raiden is more than willing to go Dark Raiden on her just for that.
  • Discovered Kolin and her cryokinesis simply by chance. This led her to her direct superiors, Gill and Urien. Seeing potential in getting the Illuminati on board with Kronika's New Era, Cetrion seeks out an alliance, promising that should Gill's Illuminati join Kronika, then their organization shall be exalted in the New Era. In the first time that the two brothers agree on anything, both Gill and Urien refused the offer. Declaring that the New Era has no place for them, Cetrion departs, promising that the next time they meet, they shall be enemies.
  • If Cetrion dislikes Liu Kang when he's in Fire God mode, then she really despises the Avatars, mainly Aang and Korra, but mostly Korra, as she can match Cetrion move-for-move, and with the Avatar State activated, is even more powerful than Cetrion. Only if Cetrion has the Hourglass is she more powerful than Korra.
  • Was successful in making contact with Regime Superman, making him an offer he can't refuse: both the Regime and his deceased wife restored, and Batman wiped from history. The former High Councilor is seriously considering that offer.
  • Surprisingly, Satsuki Kiryuin understands Cetrion, as she herself was loyal to her own mother, Ragyo Kiryuin, who was just as horrible to her as Kronika was to Cetrion.
  • Should Cetrion usurps her mother and takes the Hourglass, Cetrion chooses to baptize the denizens of the realms in hellfire after numerous failures in trying to maintain order in the various timelines. After centuries of battle, good will triumph, and in Cetrion's eyes, "they will be humbled. Eager to embrace the light." She sees something a connection with Heather Mason (aka Cheryl Mason, aka Alessa Gillespie). Or rather, a connection between herself and her unwanted followers, The Order, who believe that Heather is Saint Alessa reincarnated, of whom will lead the chosen to Paradise "with blood-stained hands." While Heather wants nothing to do with her, Cetrion is trying to convince Heather to accept her destiny.
  • Also has a spot in Hair Styles
  • "The restoration of time will not predetermine your destiny. That is for you to shape."

    Shishigami 
Shishigami, Celestial Entity of Fertile Feet (The Great Forest Spirit)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/deer_god_5.png
Shishigami (The Great Forest Spirit)
Didarabocchi (Nightwalker) 
  • Greater Deity
  • Symbol: Itself in deer form
  • Alignment: Blue-and-Orange Morality/True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Nature Spirit, The Old Gods, Above Good and Evil, The Voiceless
  • Domains: Life, Death, Nature
  • Allies: Totoro, Xerneas, Yveltal, Celebi, Spring Sprite, H’aanit, Malfurion Stormrage, Tyrande Whisperwind, Aang, Korra, Wan
  • Enemies: Firebird, Hexxus, those who actively seek to harm nature
  • Source of Interest for: Hircine, Peryite
  • Target of: GUAD
  • Special Relations: San, Ashitaka, Lady Eboshi, Moro, Okkoto
  • There exist numerous gods in a Japanese forest, dedicated to protecting it from humans that dare threaten it. The strongest and oldest god to live among them all is a spirit known as Shishigami, otherwise known as The Great Forest Spirit. By day, it takes on the form of a deer-like creature and by night, it becomes a gargantuan entity with a starry body known as Didarabocchi (Nightwalker). As a god of life and death, it can give life to anyone it sees fit and take it away just as quickly. Wherever it goes, plants not only grow, but wither away, further enforcing its role. Should its head become decapitated, it becomes an uncontrollable force of destruction that only brings about death to anyone in its way.
  • One day, a strange-looking deer was sighted in the Pantheon, roaming around and making plants grow and wither wherever it went. The witness who was trying to describe got dismissed as thinking another Xerneas was in the Pantheon despite the Pokemon being blue. When that witness returned to the forest later that day to get video evidence of the other deer, he managed to see it, but as night was about to arrive in the Pantheon, the “deer” suddenly transformed into a towering humanoid creature, causing the witness to run off in a panic. The witness was given a bit more credibility after the video he took was turned in and plenty are curious about The Great Forest Spirit since its sudden arrival.
  • Ashitaka and San were among the first to learn about The Great Forest Spirit’s arrival in the Pantheon, with the former recalling what he said to San about the Forest Spirit surviving in some way despite getting killed off. Both Ashitaka and San have seen the Forest Spirit on occasion, and San’s animal companions being more than aware of its presence. Lady Eboshi later learned of The Forest Spirit’s return and given how horribly things turned out when she tried to go after it, she has moved on to other endeavors, but the memory of it all still remains.
  • Totoro and Shishigami managed to get along with each other very well by virtue of being nature spirits. There is a significant contrast between them as while Totoro is friendly to those that can see him (which is mostly children), Shishigami is more distant and keeps a sharper eye on what’s happening in the forest around them. For those that are on good terms with both of them (and especially Shishigami), Totoro is willing to help evacuate them from Shishigami’s headless bouts of violence.
  • Both Xerneas and Yveltal hold a good level of respect towards The Great Forest Spirit given its role as a god of life and death, much like how the two Pokemon have a role in enforcing life and death respectively. Xerneas and Yveltal tend to hang out in the forest where The Great Forest Spirit and its associates are at and are good friends with the rest of them as well. Since The Great Forest Spirit is a popular target among those looking to prove themselves, the Pokemon are willing to join with the Spirit and its allies in defending the forest and drive out the invaders from disrupting the natural balance of life and death.
  • Celebi was quite happy to find another nature-based deity, especially since Shishigami had quite a bit in common with what Celebi went through at one point. Someone had tried to take Celebi for itself, resulting in the Pokemon becoming corrupted and destroying the forest that it was dedicated to protecting, eventually getting killed and later brought back to life. Shishigami holds Celebi in high regard and both entities have taken to visiting each other’s forests and protecting them from those that seek to destroy it. Celebi is rather determined in making sure Shishigami doesn’t get corrupted whenever the two are together.
  • Among those who were highly curious about Shishigami was The Spring Sprite. As someone who values nature and is very representative about life in general, The Spring Sprite was impressed with the deer form of Shishigami and was even more in awe of seeing The Nightwalker. It was through her that the spirit learned of her counterpart, The Firebird, a destructive entity that the sprite unwittingly awoke and unleashed firey death wherever it went. Even as someone who symbolizes both life and death, The Great Forest Spirit felt that The Firebird was very extreme on the “death” part of the equation and seeing its destruction wasn’t all that different from what would happen if the spirit were to lose its head.
  • The sight of Shishigami was something that awed Bambi when he first saw it from a distance. Later in the night as Bambi was looking for it, he ended up seeing a colossal creature towering over the forest the deer was in, causing a bit of wariness from him. While Bambi was assured that the deer he saw at day and the large creature at night are one and the same and that the presence of it ensures the forest both of them walk on is safe, he was told to stay far away from it should it lose its head, as Bambi is very much unable to run fast from the destruction it’ll cause. Shishigami is a bit distant towards Bambi, but still has a degree of respect towards him as it does towards other forest creatures.
  • As it is an Avatar’s duty to ensure the balance of nature, the elements and the spirit world, Aang and Korra were quick to understand who Shishigami was and its role. When Aang first saw the Nightwalker, its appearance reminded him of when he channeled the Spirit of the Moon. Shishigami has nothing but respect for both Aang and Korra (as well as their shared predecessor Wan) for their role in ensuring the overall balance of the natural world and the spirit world. Aang and Korra are willing to protect Shishigami from those that are after it and should it become decapitated, both will do whatever they can to stop its rampage.
  • It sees humans as a flawed kind of creature, though it is willing to let them live given how much suffering humans have had in the past. Even if Eboshi is every bit as flawed as described and knew her mistakes, others in the Pantheon, including those willing to destroy nature for their own selfish ends, are far more vile than the humans Shishigami had witnessed. Those who have tried to destroy natural habitats such as Mr. Burns have made attempts to build more toxic locations on natural places, but have consistently been thwarted by various means. Shishigami is more than displeased that no matter how many times they’ve been driven out by nature, some humans are very stubborn and uncaring of greater events (including cataclysmic ones) just to pursue a goal only they are interested in.
  • Hexxus, an entity born from pollution caused by mankind, considers Shishigami to be little more than a nuisance to his desire to turn the world into a toxic landscape. Shishigami was unsettled with the fact that there was something born out of mankind’s desire to needlessly destroy serene landscapes and would want nothing more than to see Hexxus gone entirely. The fact that a spirit of nature would turn into a destructive force if it loses its head only mildly amused Hexxus, as he believes that he should be the one to go out and destroy nature as he wants.
  • The GUAD has taken high notice of The Great Forest Spirit for what it is. While it swiftly brings life and death wherever it goes, the organization is more interested in how much death it unleashes once its head comes off. They have sent a lot of their troops to go after the Forest Spirit, but most of these attempts have ended in failure. Even if someone is successful in decapitating the head, all the damage that’s been caused will be undone one way or another and the spirit itself will eventually come back later given that it can’t actually die in the Pantheon (much like everything else there).
  • Malfurion Stormrage and Tyrande Whisperwind first saw Shishigami while the two were going out on their own matters. As the two approached the Forest Spirit, Malfurion was reminded of his mentor Cenarius, who was born from Stag Wild God that was similar to Shishigami. Both Malfurion and Tyrande have gotten on Shishigami’s good side and they (Tyrande in particular) have also offered to help the Spirit out whenever it becomes Nightwalker and drive out those that seek to harm it.
  • Hircine wasn’t entirely surprised after seeing another powerful deer in the Pantheon and, as The Great Stag, was willing to meet up with it. Given that he wasn’t on the best of terms with Xerneas despite his expectations, Hircine was hoping that Shishigami would be more open to understanding him. However, Shishigami shared much of the same concerns that Xerneas had about Hircine and is very worried about the damages that could be done with Hircine’s hunting battles. For the time being, Hircine is content enough to watch others try and defeat The Great Forest Spirit in battle (be it in Hircine’s Hunting Grounds or elsewhere) and is even interested in testing his strength against Shishigami itself one day, though in a fairer, lesser form.
    • Another Daedric Prince that took an interest in The Great Forest Spirit was Peryite. As someone who spreads around plagues as part of enforcing Natural Order (according to him at least), he was willing to meet up with a nature spirit, hoping to find a powerful ally that can help somewhat offset him not being as respected among the Daedric Princes. Seeing The Forest Spirit walk around and leaving growing plants that wither just as quickly in its wake was something that earned Peryite’s approval given how it offered a glimpse of what the Natural Order should be. He has very much done what he can do get on Shishigami’s good side and although he hasn’t gotten that far aside from getting a level of acknowledgement from the spirit, he’s hopeful that it can lead to something bigger.
  • Given her background as a huntress and having previously encountered a giant deer that served as a guardian of a forest, H’aanit was more than curious about Shishigami and its overall role. She very much respects the wilderness for what it is and has no tolerance for anyone that dares defile it through anything including hunting out of amusement. Learning that The Great Forest Spirit can become a destructive monster if it loses its head reminded H’aanit of Redeye, a creature of darkness that she was tasked to go after. The remaining Travelers are willing to aid H’aanit in supporting Shishigami given what H’aanit has gone through and are even willing to put a stop to its headless rampage should that happen.

    Fresh Pretty Cures 

Fresh Pretty CuresMembers , Quartet Goddesses of Clover Symbolism (Love: Cure Peach; Miki: Cure Berry, Miki-tan; Inori: Cure Pine, Buki; Setsuna: Eas, Cure Passion, Secchan)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fresh_mahou_shoujo_on_parade.png
The Fresh Pretty Cures in their transformed state. From Left to Right: Cure Peach, Cure Passion, Cure Pine, and Cure Berry.
  • Intermediate Goddesses (Greater Goddesses in their Cure Angel forms)
  • Symbol: The Fresh Pretty Cure Symbol
  • Theme Song: "Let's Fresh PreCure!"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Magical Girl Warriors, Playing Card and Fruit Motifs, Dance Battlers, Clover Symbolism.
  • Domains: Combat, Magic, Clovers, Dancing, Fruits, Teamwork
  • Heralds: Tarte, Chiffon, Azukina, and the Pickruns.
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: SHOCKER, Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke, Katsumi Daido/Kamen Rider Eternal, Tenjuro Banno, Mayuri Kurotsuchi, M.Bison, Enter, Sou Fueki/The White Wizard, Albert Wesker, the Incubators, Light Yagami, Ghetsis Harmonia, Relius Clover, Kraken, The Chaos Gods, Bernkastel, Lambadelta, Kane, Kefka Palazzo, Nyarlathotep, Calypso, Scanty.
  • Opposes: Homura Akemi.
  • Conflicting Opinion: Dolph Ziggler (Miki only)
  • Love Momozono, Miki Aono, Inori Yamabuki, and Setsuna Higashi, are members of the pantheon for a long time, however, the Fresh Cures decided to band together as a team while they they spend their training together rigorously due to the upcoming conflict that that would brought into the pantheon.
    • Also, the Fresh Cures relinquished their old separate tropes and became the holders for the trope Four-Leaf Clover due to the team's association with the clover symbols as seen in their Chest Insignia and their Finishing Move Lucky Clover Grand Finale.
  • Love and her friends were often seen practicing some dance moves due to her intense passion to this hobby. Because of this, they also joined practicing with Mai Takatsukasa, Elena, Zack, and the idol group Muse, since they also shared the same interests as Love does.
    • Also due to 'believing' a lot, Buki got along well with PaRappa The Rapper. Him dancing around like how she did is just icing the cake, really.
  • Like many Pretty Cures before, they also gets along with other magical girls like the Puella Magi, the Magic Knights, and Usagi Tsukino due to their shared distinctions of being heroines who uses their magic powers for the sake of good.
    • However, they also start to opposed Homura Akemi after they learned her treachery towards the Sisterhood during the Great Upheaval.
  • At one point, they also happen to cross paths with Knight Gundam, they were suspicious to him at first because he sounds familiar to Westar. However, after he tells his stories of his heroic actions back in his world, the girls were touched by his heroism as they worked together as allies ever since.
  • Love forms a strong bond and teamwork with Akari. As Akari represents the 'optimism/happiness', Love's job is encouraging people to seek their happiness and leading them to Akari.
  • Also her one time doing a megaton one-inch punch caught the attention of the Dragon himself, who began to teach his training philosophies and encourages Love to try training the same punch a hundred times a day, then come back and tell her how she 'feels', not 'think'. Of course, it helps that said Dragon is a dancing pro.
  • So considering her name, you would think that she'd be in the House of Love, but she assured that she's satisfied with this placing, this 'happiness' expands more than romantic love.
  • Is noted that her breasts are a bit bigger than other Precures', which earns her a bit of a humorous envy (and even Death the Kid thinks this is part of the 'Madness of Boobs'). 'Humorous' because Love and the other Precures agree to drop the subject when there's an evil that needs to be beaten.
  • Slightly creeped out by Flonne's Pure Pink costume as it makes Flonne look almost exactly like her.
  • In fact, Love doesn't have enemies, unless they prove to be irredeemable like the Chaos Gods, Banno, Bison, Kefka, Calypso, and Nyarlathotep. Otherwise, she'd encourage them to get their happiness as long as they're redeemable.
  • Miki is utterly disgusted with many who'd boast about being perfect (like Wesker, Relius, Ghetsis), she thinks they're giving the phrase 'Perfect' a bad name. She became acquaintated and friends with Phoenix Wright after hearing his tale of evicting a certain notorious evil perfectionist mortal... Manfred von Karma.
  • At some point, she saw Sayaka Miki falling into despair and turning into Oktavia von Seckendorf. As Cure Berry, she fought with all her might, always reminding Sayaka to never lose hope. After managing to revert her early with Espoir Shower Fresh (the transformation hasn't reached a very severe level), Miki proceeded to get Sayaka to tell her troubles and assures her that everything will be all right, resulting a very sweet hug and their friendship and Miki's utter disgust on the Incubators.
  • It was a good thing she wasn't dabbling on or trying to be perfect in science. Otherwise she would've incurred the wrath of Mayuri Kurotsuchi. Miki does make an exception to avoid saying "I'm perfect" within the earshot of Mayuri, additionally because his science stuff creeps her out. Luckily for her, He has no intention on doing such a thing because her perfection doesn't focus on science.
  • While she often visits her friend Inori, she always stays the hell away from the body of water containing Kraken. The mere sight of the God of Octopi is enough to make Miki scream like a harpy and run off like hell, possibly clinging on Inori's legs and shaking in fear if she's nearby note . Insults about how this makes her look un-perfect is usually brushed away later, as Miki believes that it's OK to be like that and still be perfect.
  • Miki became friends with Go Shijima because she was impressed with his profession as a photographer, with most of his picture shots were perfect in a good way.
  • She was one of the people that helped in putting down Relius Clover, and the plan was a success. Miki wished she could breathe easier now that it's one less nasty perfectionist put down... but had to put that on hold when Sayaka approached her and told her about the disastrous event known as 'The Great Upheaval'...
  • In the wake of Dolph Ziggler's Heel–Face Turn, Miki's currently helping him to improve his perfect qualities in order to remain cool without turning heel again. Sadly, Miki was shocked that Dolph went back to his villainous ways, which she makes a point to bring him back to his righteous path.
  • Due to their similarities, Inori has found a good friend with Kyoko Sakura due to their similarities of their belief in prayer. Because of this, she's one of the few Gods Kyoko has a soft spot for.
  • Buki is in good terms with Steve Irwin because of their desire to preserve wildlife in its good natural state. Due to this, she also gets along with some good beasts deities like Pikachu, Baine Bloodhoof, and Tyrantrum.
  • Helps other humans understand various animals. She never makes eye contact with The Rabbit of Caerbannog, whom she describes as 'filled with nothing but killing impulses it scares her'.
  • She used to dislike ferrets, but now is okay with them. But recently, she has a bit of an aversion to crocodiles. After Buki paid a visit to Gustave's house, trying to understand it better, she was frozen in fear with just how much death impulses the croc had and 'animal-talking' with him always end up in dialogues of how much Gustave wants to eat Buki and hear her screaming for help in fear. She tries her best to tend to any normal crocodiles, but her encounter with Gustave scarred her for life.
    • Thankfully, she was later rescued and received an apology from Gustave's boss, Sobek, who has promised that it won't happen again and thanked her for treating the other crocodiles well whenever any of them got sent to her house. At the very least, Buki has been healing her aversion to crocodiles thanks to Sobek.
  • Buki gained an ire with the likes of Bernkastel and Lambadelta, due to both of them being Magnificent Bitches that committed alot of atrocities. She also hate Kane and Light Yagami's guts due to the same reasons.
  • Although Setsuna's not that good at robots, she seemed to gather several friends from the GUAG Robot War Division, both Axel Almer and Lamia Loveless shared the mutual feelings of how it's like to grow to like their infiltration role for real. Rim also felt something similar with her friend somewhere within Setsuna... the voice, maybe?
  • Setsuna is rather wary towards the Technology house. She has no qualms with them, but she always knew that they always have a chance to commit something that may repeat the Moebius incident. So she remains careful in what they're developing and encourages them to 'do their best' instead of overdependency.
  • Setsuna is also get along well with Vector since he also grew to like his friendship towards Yuma Tsukumo much like how Setsuna develops into what she is today.
    • Setsuna also formed a kinship with both Tommy Oliver, Mitsuzane Kureshima, Judai Yuki, Sol Badguy, Zuko, F.I.S. Receptor Children, and Chase, due to the fact that they atoned themselves as heroes due to their past actions a villains. Moreover, she also expressed her sympathy towards Micchy's older brother Takatora due him being used by his so-called allies back then.
    • Like many reformed heroes before, Setsuna also expressed her disappointment towards Katsumi Daido since his transition from being a hero to villain makes him the literal opposite of her actions, while she also start to defend her fellow reformed heroes from him after she notices his relentless attack on them.
    • After meeting each other and exchanging their stories of 'being on the dark side until pulling out of that', in spite of the differing way to get out of that (she had to reject her old values, while he was forcefully brainwashed), Setsuna has become friends and kind-of-little-sister figure to Jean-Pierre Polnareff, she also kinda admire about his ability to resist impulses to Kick the Dog while brainwashed.
  • Setsuna became enemies with Scanty after the former was annoyed by the latter's villainous antics. On top of that, the demon also sounds similar to her as the two often clashes whenever they cross paths.
  • It's unknown on how Setsuna got it, but among her personal collection is a working replica Decadriver. However the Cures are somewhat good friends with Tsukasa Kadoya, especially for Setsuna, after learning his origins of being the villainous Great Leader of Dai-Shocker until he became a true Kamen Rider due to his endless journey through dimensions.
    • Other than Tsukasa, they were also friends with the Shinkengers and the two-in-one detectives Shotaro Hidari and Philip since they have their adventures during the same year as them, particularly, the year 2009.
  • The Fresh Cures were under the watchful eye of Ryoma Sengoku who observes their battle data as a means to create Lockseeds based on their powers. It doesn't take long that they also hate his guts in the same way as many good deities hate the scientist. Also they didn't like Sou Fueki's guts as well because he uses his magical powers for his own agenda even at the cost of numerous innocent victims.

  • As one of several kinds of soldiers in Bowser’s army, the Piranha Plants play their part in serving as obstacles in the various journeys of Mario and his friends. With their sharp teeth and preferring to stay in pipes, these Piranha Plants lie in wait, hoping to take a bite out of anyone stupid enough to get close to them. They come in many varieties, with some plants able to poison their foes and others able to spit out fire, with Petey Piranha serving as one of the strongest of the bunch.
  • In a sprawling jungle in the Pantheon, a group of explorers were searching for some treasure and they managed to find an underground cavern filled with pipes. Those pipes contained a bevy of man-eating plants looking to sink their teeth into anyone nearby. Those regular Piranha Plants didn’t pose much of a problem for those explorers, but as they went deeper in the cave, the plants became more varied and in the deepest depths of the cave housed Petey Piranha, a large plant that was fairly mobile and spat out gunk to hinder anyone that opposed him. The explorers were able to outwit Petey and take the treasure that he was guarding. Despite the explorers’ success in taking the item, there were many other Piranha Plants across the Pantheon and Petey himself was bound to be somewhere else, either following the orders of Bowser or operating independently of Bowser’s army.
  • Besides being involved with Bowser and his various plots, the Piranha Plants have sometimes been seen with Wario and Waluigi whenever the duo are causing mischief. The generic Piranha Plants enjoy the duo’s company, though there is a bit of a stronger connection with Waluigi thanks to him opting to use a Piranha Plant as a partner of his during certain Mario Party events involving duels in smaller boards. Petey Piranha sometimes joins in with the duo whenever he’s bored, though he likes hanging out with King Boo, another leader of mooks within Bowser’s army who sometimes joins Petey in kart races involving two-seaters whenever they aren’t actively putting others in great danger. Not only that, Petey has often participated in numerous sports contests arranged by Mario and Co., usually representing the Piranha Plants who, at most, show up as audience members or as obstacles in some gimmicky courses.
  • At one point, Petey Piranha crashed one of the Smash tournaments just as an army form Subspace was ready to attack, trapping Peach and Zelda in cages and Kirby needing to defeat him in order to save one of the princesses (the other was captured by Wario during the chaos). Some of the generic Piranha Plants became direct participants in a later Smash tournament, with Petey temporarily showing up whenever those specific Piranha Plants can use a Final Smash. Those Piranha Plants who fought in the Smash tournament serve as some of the stronger members of the team thanks to being able to engage in direct combat against much more dangerous enemies, with Petey helping these plants out if they’re in trouble.
  • While most of their work is done with Bowser and the Koopa Troop, the Piranha Plants have taken a liking to working with other plant deities such as Audrey II (and the Piranha Plants sometimes show up to add some flair to Audrey II’s musical numbers at times), Cagey Carnation, and Poison Ivy. Of them, Poison Ivy is fond of their company to the point of not only recruiting some of them to unleash some more plant-based terror, but also keeps one potted Piranha Plant in her home that often gets a bit snappy whenever intruders show up.
  • Appropriately given her status as a Nature Spirit, Viridi has shown great admiration towards the Piranha Plant line. Whenever they’re brought up during a conversation, she’ll be quick to bring up the large number of variants they have, though many of the people that either aren’t nature-savvy or don’t like getting into long conversations will try to shut her up. Even if she can’t completely extoll how great these creatures are to others, Viridi has taken to getting some Piranha Plants to join her army to further her goal of wiping out those that destroy nature.
  • Dr. Zomboss finds the Piranha Plants to be infuriating to him given how not only do plants like them keep thwarting his plans, but the sheer number and variety of them meant the zombies have even less of a chance at getting their goals accomplished since the stronger variants (especially Petey Piranha) will make quick work of his army. It’s simply motivated Zomboss to get more creative and ambitious with the kinds of zombies he can come up with. As for Crazy Dave, he did find the Piranha Plants to be useful and did try to meet up with their “leader” Petey Piranha, but it ended poorly, partially because of Petey’s aggressive and dim-witted behavior, and partly because of Dave being crazy. Cagey Carnation, a morally dubious flower, has been convincing Dave following that meeting that the Piranha Plants really are useful in fending off Zomboss’ army and while he did acknowledge it, the initial meeting with the Piranha Plants left enough of an impression on him that they aren’t used much by him in garden defense.
  • As part of a mission to recover some underground items for others to use or sell, Olimar and his Pikmin found themselves in a partially submerged cavern with some pots and pipes, with some of the items he was looking for next to those structures. Olimar and his Pikmin were attacked by some Piranha Plants while trying to get the treasures and at the bottom of that cavern he was exploring, he found a Dino Piranha, which ended up giving him and his Pikmin a difficult time. Following the defeat of Dino Piranha, Olimar catalogued it and the other Piranha Plants he encountered underground, noting that these creatures would be ubiquitous and he’d encounter different versions of them depending on the environment he’s at.
  • While fire and poison would normally be a problem for plants like them (fire especially since it’s a common way to deal with those plants), there are some Piranha Plant variants that are able to spit out fire or spew poison as a means to deter anyone close to them. There are also Piranha Plants that have a cold bite, some with spikes covered on them, some that can elongate themselves, and even Piranha Plants that are made of bones, yet somehow able to function like others of their kind. In general, depending on the environment, there’s likely to be some Piranha Plants with the fitting abilities there.
  • The Piranha Plants as a whole are generally regarded to be nuisances, though one deity who has a more notable dislike of them is The Courier. It can be attributed to The Courier having previously visited a Vault that originally had plants sustained in order to keep its population alive. Vault 22 fell into disarray after the fungus meant for pest control wiped out the population inside and mutated some of them. That Vault also had some killer plants while The Courier was exploring it and the Piranha Plants being ubiquitous across the Pantheon didn’t endear them to The Courier and even if they didn’t look nearly as threatening as those killer plants from Vault 22, The Courier is willing to eliminate any Piranha Plant that gets in their way.

Lesser Gods

    Audrey II 
Audrey II, God(dess?) of Plant Aliens (Mean Green Mother From Outer Space)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/audrey2B_2514.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His/her/itself — a giant flytrap-like plant, ready to eat someone.
  • Theme Song: Mean Green Mother from Outer Space
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Faustian Deals, Villain Songs, Evil Is Hammy, Card-Carrying Villain, Big Bad Friend
  • Domains: Plants, Trickery, Hunger, Music
  • Followers: Lyekka, the Chomper, Bramble
  • Allies: Mordremoth, Durathror, Petey Piranha, King Boo, Shub-Niggurath
  • Enemies: Shaymin, Venusaur
  • Pities: The Kankers
  • Plants are something many have been used to. If one were to see a plant move, then they would have encountered a Plant Alien. Not only does Audrey II come from outer space (apparently), he also has a bit of an appetite.
  • He used to have the title of both Plant Aliens and Man-Eating Plant. However, he said this one time to the Court of the Gods:
    "Get this straight! I'm just a mean, green mother from outer space and I'm bad!"
  • Has attempted to get others to Feed him though many good members always chose to avoid him, evil members find it the best way to be rid of certain kinds of evidence.
  • Is often seen trying to do duets with Oogie Boogie over their favorite types of meals.
  • Whenever Seymour Gaudo visits the House of Nature and is near the plant, Audrey II will sometimes say "Feed me, Seymour!" Gaudo tends to get confused whenever he hears it.
  • Is on decent terms with Durathror. However, she doesn't have any interest in singing any duets with Audrey II.
  • King Boo gets along well with Audrey II, mostly because of the fact that the plant seems to bring to mind Petey Piranha. They are still friendly with each other even after Petey ascended.
  • Both Venusaur and Shaymin prefer to stay far away from him. The opposition towards Audrey II also extends to the other ascended grass-type Pokémon in the Pantheon.
  • There was once a viewing party for the plant's outing and there were two endings involved: one where he emerged victorious and the other where he was defeated. Unsurprisingly, the good-aligned deities preferred the ending where Audrey II was defeated and the plant liked the original ending better.
    • Because of this, the plant does not like it that much when people bring up his defeat in front of him. He also has taken a pity to The Kankers who were also victims of Executive Meddling and lost their victorious ending, even if it was in a dream sequence.
      • And for that matter, don't bring up something else when near him. He prefers to forget that entirely.
  • "It's suppertime."

    Gourgeist 
Gourgeist, Goddess of Pumpkin Creatures (Pumpkin Pokémon, Pumpjin)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/711gourgeist.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The carved-out face on her pumpkin
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Gender: Female
  • Ability: Frisk
  • Moves: Trick-or-Treat, Leech Seed, Will-O-Wisp, Phantom Force
    • Z-Move: Never-Ending Nightmare
  • Portfolio: Pumpkin Creature, Grass-Type, Ghost-Type, Cute, But Sadistic, Mighty Glacier, Took a Level in Jerkass, Prehensile Hair, Taker Her Foes to Trick-or-Treating, Curses People With Singing
  • Domains: Plants, Ghosts, Creatures, Halloween
  • Followers: Lord Pumpkin, Pumpkin Rapper, Squashini, Jacko
  • Allies: Jessie, James, Meowth, Mad King Thorn, Jack O'Lantern, Koume Shirasaka
  • Enemies: Jack Skellington
  • Evil Counterpart to: Trevenant
  • Gourgeist is a type of Pokémon who looks like a carved-out gourd with a face and hair-like arms. The species of Pokémon is known to come in multiple sizes, which modifies one's HP, Attack and Speed stats. This particular Gourgeist has the biggest possible size (Super Size), thus giving her higher-than-normal HP and Attack, but lower-than-normal Speed.
  • While Gourgeist might look cute and all, she is actually rather evil. It enjoys seeing her victims struggle in her hands if she catches them and is known to sing in the middle of the night during the new moon, with her singing known to curse those who hear her song. This particularly off when one considers that Pumpkaboo are known to be helpful Psychopomps. Just what happens to a Pumpkaboo when one evolves?
    • Note that this does make Gourgeist one of only Pokémon who can be labelled as being actively evil, so to speak. Even Bisharp is only really "evil" because it chooses to. Gourgeist is just an asshole.
  • Gourgeist is thankful of Jessie of Team Rocket taking care of a Pumpkaboo and managing to evolve it into a Gourgeist.
  • Gourgeist has a special move known as Trick-or-Treat which supposedly makes her take her foes to trick-or-treating. Somehow, this makes them have a Ghost-type when used, even if they have two different types already. And since Ghost is weak to itself, Gourgeist can abuse it to her advantage.
    • Her relation with trick-or-treating really puts a bad taste on Jack Skellington as he doesn't like something like Gourgeist to be associated with Halloween. Thorn, on the other hand, is all for her tricks.
  • Even though Gourgeist is a Grass-type, she can potentially learn a decent amount of Fire-type moves. In fact, Gourgeist can have a decent type coverage... if it wasn't for the fact that most of those moves are Special, and Gourgeist is a physical attacker.
  • If you're wondering why she is an Evil Counterpart to Trevenant, it is because both of them are Grass/Ghost-types who are ghosts possessing some sort of plant, have to be traded to evolve and have a move what adds a typing to the opponent. However, where as Trevenant is friendlier than he looks, Gourgeist is more malicious than she looks.
  • Oddly enough, Koume seems to really like Gourgeist, apparently not really realizing that what they say about Gourgeist might be true. Gourgeist is both confused but flattered by her affection, however.
  • Recently, Gourgeist found kinsman-ship with the Headless Horseman, due mainly to their shared association with flaming pumpkins. The two have since become partners, with Gourgeist serving as a substitute head for the Horseman to throw at unsuspecting travellers.

    Momotaro 
Momotaro, God of Those who were Born from Plants (Peach Boy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/momotaro_4.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A large peach
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Born from a giant peach, Given to a childless couple by the gods, Happily Adopted, Name means "Peach Boy", Befriending animals by feeding them kibi-dango
  • Domains: Heroism, Gifts, Birth, Peaches
  • Heralds: Dog, Monkey, and Pheasant (his Talking Animal friends)
  • Allies: Superman, Son Goku, Metro Man, Megamind, Samurai Jack, Mario, Princess Peach, Thumbelina, James Harry Trotter and his Bug Friends, Ash Ketchum, Pikachu, Kirby, the Animal Friends, Ryotaro Nogami, Tethu, Tethi and Esna
  • Opposed by: Private Snafu
  • Conflicting Opinion: Yuugi Hoshiguma, Zero Two, King Dedede
  • Once upon a time, there was an elderly couple with no children. Feeling distraught over their lack of children, the prayed to the gods to give them the children they desired. One day, a massive peach floated down a nearby river, which the elderly couple decided to eat. Suddenly, out of the peach emerged a baby boy, who explained that he was bestowed upon them by the gods. They named him Momotaro and happily raised him like he was their own child. When Momotaro grew into a fine young man, a group of Oni were wreaking havoc on his hometown and stealing food from the villagers. Momotaro decided to stop the Oni's mischief by heading out to their island, Onigashima, with his trusty sword and his kibi-dango rations. During his journey, he met a dog, a monkey, and a pheasant, who decided to tag along with him after he fed them kibi-dango. When the group managed to reach the island, they gave the Oni's a sound thrashing. The Oni's surrendered, and so Momotaro and his friends returned to the village with the stuff the Oni stole, as was labeled a hometown hero for his heroic deeds.
  • It was a normal day in the House of Plants, when Mary Lennox, Wirt, and Greg discovered a giant peach growing in a patch of land in a forest. Curious about the giant peach, they decided to carry it over to the House of Food for food preparation. However, the peach suddenly split in half to reveal an adult human male sleeping inside. He woke up, and was confused by his surroundings, the three children standing in front of him, and him being inside a giant peach again. When asked about what happened to him, he claimed that the last thing he remembered was living in his village before blacking out and awaking in the House of Plants. After some more explanations, Momotaro was brought to the Court of the Gods, who gave him the divine title of Born from Plants, for his rather unorthodox birth.
  • One of Momotaro's first friends is Thumbelina, who coincedentally shares similar circumstances of birth; she was given to a childless woman desperate to have children of her own, though unlike Momotaro, she was born extremely small. Momotaro was a bit surprised when he heard this, as it reminded him of another tale of a tiny Wonder Child named Issun-boshi. He felt a bit bad that she was constantly kidnapped around, while she was impressed by his bravery in stopping the greedy Oni.
  • Momotaro also managed to meet other deities like Superman, Son Goku, Metro Man, and Megamind who were gifted to childless parents, though under different circumstances; they are aliens sent hurtling down to Earth because of their home planet's destruction and just so happened to land near a house. Momotaro was amazed at Superman's and Goku's immense strength and power, while they appreciated his willingness to defeat the Oni to protect his village. Momotaro was initially a bit antsy with Megamind because of his supervillain antics, but Metro Man assured him that Megamind isn't really evil, which calmed down Momotaro.
  • Momotaro's animal friends, Monkey, Dog, and Pheasant, are sometimes seen around him during his walks around the Pantheon. Momotaro managed to find common ground with Ash Ketchum, who has captured and befriended many Pokemon, andforged a stong bond with his partners, especially Pikachu. Momotaro is impressed by Ash's large team, and wishes to meet the rest of his Pokemon someday. He also befriended Kirby and the Animal Friends, who have accompanied Kirby on some of his adventures and helped out by tag-teaming and boosting his powers, which Momotaro was impressed by. He was quite surprised by Kirby's voracious appetite believing that Kirby would eat the giant peach in one go.
  • As a fellow samurai, it wasn't long before he met Samurai Jack, who then decided to tell eachothers tales. Momotaro was floored by Jack's adventures in the Bad Future and his steadfast will to keep going despite the seeming hopelessness of his situaton. Jack on the other hand appreciated his willingness to stop the Oni from ransacking his village and befriending the animals to help him. They often like to meet up and cat in their free time.
  • Ryotaro Nogami was absolutely estatic to see Momotaro in the Pantheon, as he admires him greatly and even named his first Imagin Momotaros, whose powers even reference his legend. Needless to say, Ryotaro pretty much gushed about Momotaro when they first met, making both Momotaro and Momotaros embarrassed. After calming down, they managed to become good friends, with Momotaro appreciating Ryotaro's determination and heroic spirit, despite his bad luck.
  • There are some rumors that Mario went through the same birth and journey as Momotaro, except the Oni's were Bowser and his Koopa Troop, their base was a spaceship instead of an island, and Mario carried a gun instead of a sword. When Momotaro went up to Mario to confirm the rumors, Mario debunked those rumors, saying that the circumstances of his birth were quite different than that. With this, he introduced Momotaro to Princess Peach, and they managed to become friends.
  • Momotaro took interest in Harry James Trotter and his Bug Friends because of their experiences with giant peaches, but its role was different than his own; The giant peach in James' story came because of a crocodile tongue enchanting it and the bugs living in it, serving as their "birth" in a sense, and then James and his newfound friends decide to travel to New York on the peach to start a new life and escape from James' abusive aunts. Both parties were amused at the coincedences, and appreciated eachothers bravery in stopping the Oni and escaping from abusive guardians respectively.
  • Momotaro is rather disapproving of the times King Dedede stole Dream Land's food for himself, just like the Oni stole his village's food. While Dedede doesn't engage in such activities anymore (at least, not voluntarily), Momotaro's willing to stop him should he do such things again. Speaking of Oni, he has a rocky relationship with Yuugi Hoshiguma and Zero Two, who happen to be an Oni and resemble an Oni respectively. Both sides would rather just avoid eachother lest things get uncomfortable.
  • Bizzarely, Private Snafu hates Momotaro, believing him to be a general in the Imperial Japanese army, who managed to defeat British soldiers with his animal friends. Momotaro is completely baffled by his accusations, especially as he lived way before WWII happened, and claims he remembers nothing of the sort. He tries his best to avoid the Private and not face his wrath.
  • Goro Majima, bearing a tattoo of a hannya, once fought against Dojima Family lieutenant Hiroki Awano, who bears a tatto of Momotaro, whose story reflected Awano's life. Momotaro elevating his family to a comfortable life with the riches he took back mirrors Awano being a hedonistic, laid-back man who would indulge in his comfortable life, but beneath his lazy lifestyles is his indomitable strength and skills in extortion. Ironic that he managed to get killed by Lao Gui, a man whose name means "old demon". Goro Majima could only imagine how Awano would react if he and Momotaro ever met.
  • Momotaro isn't the only one who was born from plants; the Seedlings are an entire race of living seeds living in a harsh desert, who make pacts with water spirits to survive. When Momotaro met them, he was initially disappainted he couldn't meet Esna directly and wishes to meet her, but otherwise likes the two seedlings for standing up against Chaos. Tethu and Tethi on the other hand are surprised he's not a Seedling despite his strange birth.
  • Can also be found in Life & Creation.

    The Toads 
The Toads, Collective Deities of Mushroom Folk (Kinopio)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/toads.png
The more notable Toadsfrom left to right 
  • Notable Members: Toad, Toadsworth, Toadette, Blue Toad & Yellow Toad, Captain Toad
  • Either Demideities or Quasideities
  • Symbol: A mushroom
  • Theme Music: For the species as a whole, the Toad House theme: Super Mario Bros. 3, New Super Mario Bros., New Super Mario Bros. U, Super Mario 3D World, and their theme from Mario Strikers: Charged; for Captain Toad, it's the main theme from his own adventure
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: As a whole: Inexplicably Identical Individuals, Kid Appeal Characters, Mushroom Folk
  • Domains: Mushrooms, Advisors, Adventure
  • Allies: Princess Peach, Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Daisy, Rosalina, Crazy Dave, Bilbo & Frodo Baggins
  • Enemies: Bowser, The Koopalings, Bowser Jr., Petey Piranha, King Boo, Goomba, Lakitu & Spiny, Dr. Zomboss, Murkrow, Junkrat & Roadhog
  • Opposes: Wario
  • As one would expect from a place called the Mushroom Kingdom, it would have to have inhabitants that would resemble mushrooms. This is where the Toad species come in and typically speaking, they are Peach's assistants and give the Mario brothers aid whenever she gets kidnapped.
    • In addition to the regular kinds of Toad (of whom have different colored vests and spots on their headcaps), there are a few special ones. Toadsworth is the oldest Toad of the bunch and has a cane with him, Toadette is a female Toad, and Captain Toad who leads the Toad Brigade on treasure hunts throughout various places. There's also a blue Toad & yellow Toad who don't look much different from other blue Toads & yellow Toads, but they're willing to jump into adventure if the need arises.
  • Not only does Toad play assistant to Peach's royal duties, but he has also tagged along with her and the Mario brothers for various recreational activities such as kart-racing (Toad had a tendency to say "I'm the best!" during these races, but decided to stop) and sports. Peach even carries a Toad around with her whenever she engages in combat against other deities, mainly as a means to counter opponent's attacks. Despite taking a lot of strong attacks, the Toad who is Peach's personal meat-shield doesn't look too beat up after Peach's fights.
  • While they still help Peach out, the Toads have also decided to provide some aid for the GUAG via setting up special houses known as "Toad Houses" that can provide useful items for members of the GUAG. Shops headed by other Toads have also been established.
  • The Toads have gotten a lot of questions as to why Peach gets kidnapped so easily despite the Toads being there for her. They have not answered anything about that matter, nor are they going to say anything about requests to improve their attempts to prevent Peach from getting taken away.
  • Even though there are a few red-capped blue-vested Toads, there is one of that variation who is often seen alongside Peach the most and has even gone off on an adventure of his own. That solo adventure might be the reason why the Toads aren't trusting of Wario.
  • Debates as to whether or not the species actually are living mushrooms or if they're just humanoids who happen to resemble mushrooms have happened quite often. What can be agreed on is that they have no connection whatsoever to amphibious toads.
    • Crazy Dave seems to think that the former argument in the mentioned debate is the case. Regardless, he gets along with them since they remind him of the mushrooms that helped him fend off zombie invasions back in his world. Dave even allowed a few of these Toads to help with his shop.
      • Dr. Zomboss was very livid when he found out that there were actual living mushrooms (or at least looked like such). Even if the Toads generally don't pose much of a threat, Zomboss is still determined in getting rid of them entirely.
  • Bilbo & Frodo Baggins were intrigued upon meeting them and believe that the Toads are the fungal equivalents of their kin. Given that the Baggins are capable of going up against threats that arise, the Toads often like to talk to them whenever a calm day is happening, mostly for advice on being more proactive with confronting danger.
  • As the oldest Toad out there more or less, Toadsworth has been by Peach's side concerned for her safety. On a relaxing day he can be seen playing baseball with her, though some find it odd that he uses his cane as a baseball bat.
    • Toadsworth became good friends with Alfred Pennyworth since the two of them served as loyal retainers for their own higher authority for quite a while. Toadsworth has also asked Pennyworth for advice on maintaining a cooler head whenever trouble strikes.
  • It is very easy to identify Toadette given that she is pink and the sole female of the Toad species (at least as far as one would know). Besides being the sister of the red-capped blue-vested Toad, she's done a few things such as take part in races much like that Toad did and even go on adventures with Captain Toad. It's not brought up often, but some have also seen that she likes animals and had performances at music recitals.
  • Blue Toad & Yellow Toad appear exactly as their names would suggest. They can use some of the same power-ups that Mario & Luigi can (provided that they have a Fire Flower, Ice Flower, or Penguin Suit), though these Toads being a minor duo is the most major thing that can be said about them.
    • Given their status of being a duo that sticks together in any sort of situation (or simply being Those Two Guys), they have gotten along with other duos such as Bulk & Skull and Timon & Pumbaa. On the other hand, both Toads (and the other Toads by extension) prefer to keep their distance from Junkrat & Roadhog, especially after hearing how these two Australian menaces had a few characteristics in common with Bowser.
    • However, Blue Toad seems to be out of commissioned when Peach was kidnapped again so Toadette decided to take up the mantle to rescue her. It was reported that she discovered a special power-up known as the "Super Crown" which allows her to transform into Peachette, granting her some of her abilities. Unfortunately, the Super Crown attracted a lot of attention with the gods and with the arrival of Bowsette, the Crown has to be restricted.
  • Out of all of the Toads, Captain Toad could be considered to be the most proactive of the bunch due to him being the leader of the Toad Brigade and going off on expeditions to search for unusual stuff. For someone that can't jump, he's doing pretty well in his endeavors.
    • At times, Captain Toad would hang out with a few treasure hunters such as Indiana Jones and talk about their exploits. Sometimes, the relations are friendly; other times, there can be a bit of competition involved over getting a particular item.
    • The Murkrow flock has proven to be a frequent source of frustration for Captain Toad due to them being crows that steal things, a description that would remind him (and Toadette) of Wingo, a crow that also stole things and is potentially far more malicious than the Murkrow flock.
  • Names have been given to a few of the more noteworthy Toads (though Buckenberry & Ala-Gold were considered at one point to be the official given names of the prominent Blue Toad & Yellow Toad respectively), but so far there hasn't been any for the rest of the generic ones. Although some names have been tossed around for them, there have been few, if any, generic Toads that have distinct names.
    • Confusion as to which Toad is which can be considered the reasoning behind the idea to give the other Toads names. Although the red-capped blue-vested Toad following Peach around is considered to be the Toad, there has been confusion about if that Toad truly is the Toad or not. And then there's the possibility of if that Toad is Captain Toad or not. This is not getting to the possibility that the aforementioned red-capped blue-vested Toad has been impersonating as the blue Toad that follows around the yellow Toad.
