  • Gaius is the commander of Emperor Mateus's forces and as such has shown great skill with his single Gunblade Heirsbane. With it he is able to take on many opponents at once as he has shown here. He now is ready to show The Pantheon the strength of a newly formed Empire.
  • Serves his Emperor with complete loyalty and under his orders was given the task to help him conquer The Pantheon. His actions had earned him the rivalry of Alexander and Shao Kahn as they also seek similar goals.
  • He now holds The Ultima Weapon, A powerful Machine that was created to conquer ancient Gods called The Primals, He pilots in when he needs to use it to fight the more powerful members of The Pantheon, though he would reframe from using it if pushed he will use Ultima.
    • This has earned him the ire of Odin as in Gaius's world he is one of those Primals and seeks to destroy such a machine.
  • Has sided with Corypheus on the idea that Divine Power from false gods is only from misguided, weak, false rulers. He believes that the stability and absolute order that would come with Mateus's rule is the only true strength that is needed.
    • Gaius has earned Hawke's anger due to this.
  • He often tries to dissuade uses of power that would outright devastate any part of The Pantheon as he wishes to conquer every part and cannot due so if they are turned into a smoking crater.
  • He has tried to get Gabranth to work with Mateus as he believes that they are after something similar, though he has turned him down in every turn Gaius admires the man's loyalty to his ideals.

Link over the ages.
Hero of the Wild 
  • Intermediate God (the Hero of Time is a Greater God, potentially Overdeity, with the Fierce Deity Mask equipped)
  • Symbol: The Triforce of Courage
  • Theme Song: The Legend of Zelda Main Theme
  • Alignment: Varying with each incarnation, but always Good.
  • Portfolio: Ancestral Weapons, Arrows on Fire, Chain of Deals, Cosmic Keystones, Fetch Quests, Wordlessness, Being Equipped to handle anything, Hyperspace Arsenals, Hammerspace, Heroism, Destined To Be A Hero, Heroic Spirit, Humility
  • Domains: Courage, Strength, Time, War, Reincarnation

  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Caim, Firion, Cloud, Spawn
  • Enemies: Ganondorf, Zant, Ghirahim, Majora, Bowser, Cia, Claude, Ardyn Izunia.
  • Weapon of Choice? Pfft! Whatever Link pulls out of his bag is his Weapon of Choice. Yes...even a big chunk of meat and a bottle. When forced to choose only one, however, it is usually his Sword of Plot Advancement, which is often (though not always) the Master Sword.
  • Destined to reincarnate in an endless cycle for as long as there is evil. Over the past two thousand years or so has started wearing a green tunic and pointy hat in each life for reasons he isn't sure about - every time he is born, he forgets very nearly everything, to the point of being surprised every time he learns that he is a god. This is just as well, considering the tantrum he threw the last time he didn't. Growing up and collecting all that weaponry is time consuming!
  • Used to hold the title of Silent Protagonists, until it was stolen by Claude. He is understandably upset.
  • In 2017, the Court of the Gods allowed Link to acquire the title of Eternal Hero, given how his series handled his multiple incarnations across separate timelines. This, of course, meant a return to the House of Heroes; more specifically, Heroic Archetypes.
  • Didn't know what to say in regards to how the Nostalgia Critic dressed up as him during the quest to find Malachite's Hand.
  • To combat the GUAE's growing power, Link has been training with other gods. Notably Ieyasu , Yukimura, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei and Liu Bei. The results have been impressive.
  • Subject to an equally endless line of prophecies, most of which only apply to one lifespan each.
  • The other Prophecy Gods let him in to this house to do their errands. When it comes to MacGuffin Delivery Services, particularly matched sets, you can't hire much better than Link. And he can get a bottle of milk from the cow to the god paying in two minutes flat, or it's free.
  • Needless to say, with all of this reincarnation going on, he is pretty much Virtuous' bitch.
  • Finds kinship with Lucina, due to having once also worn masks to impersonate others.
  • In recent times Link has had conversations with other gods. While the gods remember the subjects they talked about, no one can ever seem to remember exactly what the hero said or what sort of voice or accent he might have had.
  • Never, never, NEVER put Link into a wrestling match, unless it is a sumo wrestling match. He can Body Slam EVERYTHING to death!
  • Because of his unrelenting heroism, courage and benevolence; Link has proven to be one of the nicest gods in the Pantheon, capable of forming long-lasting friendships with fellow heroes and defenders of justice:
    • Link is a good friend of Nintendo deities Mario, Samus Aran and Fox McCloud. They are always on the look out for any dangers that might threaten the Nintendo realms.
    • Has become friends with a kind-hearted Artificial Intelligence from AlfheimOnline called Yui, as well as her parents Kirito and Asuna. Yui is very fond of Link because his relationship to Navi reminds her of her own with her father; a Charming Elvish Sword-Loving Bad-Boy and his adorable fairy companion. Link is also warmly reminded of his relationship with Zelda when he sees how close and loving Kirito and Asuna are.
    • One day, he started beating the stuffing out of Donald Duck and Goofy without warning. Sora stepped in to knock some sense into Link. He succeeded. Turns out, Link was possessed by Dark Link, who gained more power by combining with the Heartless. Link, Sora, Donald, and Goofy beat back Dark Link and his minions after a long fight, and now the four are staunch allies after everything they've gone through.
    • One of Link's most recent allies is Optimus Prime. They became friends after dicussing their recurrent roles as heroes across space and time. Also, Link can ssympathize with Optimus because of his unyielding heroism despite... certain events.
    • Link is also fond of travelling with Ash Ketchum and his trusty Pikachu. Seeing how close Ash and Pikachu reminds the Hero of Hyrule of his companions.
    • Link also struck up a friendship with the Master Chief, as they are both green-clad heroes who saved their worlds from unspeakable dangers. John also sees Link’s loyalty and devotion to Princess Zelda similar to his own friendship to Cortana, and wonders how can Link, a legendary hero the same as him, can also function as a regular person. By his own admission, the one time John traveled to Hyrule, he was taken aback by the everyday kindnesses of the Hyrulean people.
    • Also finds common ground with James Ramirez, what with them being their universes' errant boys and not saying much. Ramirez considers Link something of a forefather, since he does all the hero work in his universe all by himself.
    • The Soul Series deities, who he fought once, like to invite him for battle. Sometimes just for kicks he enters the bouts with his Bug-Catching Net.
  • Recent peeks into Zelda's diary have revealed that the primary reason for Link's reputable silence is to cope with the stress of his many responsibilities.
  • It has recently been theorized that Doomguy is one of Link's incarnations. He and Zelda were both unnerved by the idea.
  • Link eventually found out that, in a separate universe, Hermaeus Mora was responsible for completely destroying Hyrule in his obsession to find the ancient knowledge that the kingdom held. Because of this, Link keeps a steady eye on the Daedric Prince just in case he feels Hermaeus Mora is about to pose a visible threat to Hyrule.
  • Despite being in a setting with Medieval Stasis, he has experience with riding a motorcycle.
  • Also present in the Heroic Archetypes.

  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her large scroll
  • Theme Song: Her theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Wields Multiple Ranged Weapons, Anime Chinese Girl, Arms Dealer, Butt-Monkey, Flechette Storm, Hyperspace Arsenal, Can effectively wield weapons that she has no prior knowledge on, Skilled at using close-range weapons, which she also frequently uses as throwing weapons, Odango Hair, Plucky Girl, Tomboy with a Girly Streak
  • Domain(s): Ranged Weapons, Ninjutsu
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Rodin, Marcus Kincaid
  • Enemies: The Shredder, Leopold Goenitz
  • Conflicting Opinion: Mr. Mundy the Sniper
  • Since her time as a student in the Academy, Tenten admired the legendary kunoichi Tsunade, one of the Sannin, and desired to become just like her, a goal which she openly shared to others. After graduating from the Academy, Tenten was assigned to Team Guy alongside Rock Lee and Neji Hyuga. Tenten initially attempted to emulate Tsunade and become a medical-nin, but her efforts repeatedly failed. Eventually, Tenten discovered her talent for Sealing Jutsu and thus developed her own unique fighting style, which involves storing a numerous amount of weapons into her scrolls and later unsealing them to bombard her opponents. Realising her own nature, she stopped trying to become like Tsunade, but did not give up on her dream of becoming a legendary kunoichi in her own right. Following the end of the Fourth Great Ninja War, Tenten's hobby of collecting every type of ninja tool from across the world escalated to the point she opened a weapons shop to sell the tools, though it's nearly always empty due to the peaceful era.
  • Tenten initially entered the pantheon as a follower of Yamcha, due to how often she occasionally tends to suffer and be humiliated, as well as Yusuke Fujisaki and Hime Onizuka, due to how she frequently ends up being the Straight Man among her team. Eventually, her talent for weaponry was noticed and after giving a demonstration of her excellent markmanship skills in which she hit 100/100 marks each time, she was allowed to enter the pantheon. She quickly reunited with Rock Lee and Might Guy, who greeted her in their typical enthusiastic manner, much to her exasperation. Afterwards, she opened up a weapons shop inside her temple, hoping that she would have better luck selling ninja tools in the pantheon.
  • She quickly befriended the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who were quite impressed by her ability to wield each of their weapons with great efficiency. She enjoys spending time with them, but is rather disappointed that none of them can buy weapons from her shop due to not having any money. However, her friendship with the Turtles also resulted in her becoming enemies with the Shredder, who regards her as a threat to him.
  • She gets along quite well with Link, who, although he doesn't practice ninjutsu, is known for wielding numerous weapons in each incarnation. She was impressed by the fact that he owns several weapons that she had never seen before, including several supernatural ones.
  • When Tenten heard of Sakuya Izayoi, a Ninja Maid who is similarly known for throwing large barrages of knives, she sought her out and challenged her to a battle in order to compare their abilities. However, the battle ended pretty quickly due to Sakuya's ability to stop time. Nonetheless, they remain on good terms and Tenten intends to challenge her again someday.
  • Tenten has also formed a friendship with Sakura Kasugano, as the two bonded over how they're fangirls of someone. However, while Sakura copied all of Ryu's moves, Tenten differentiated herself from Tsunade after discovering her own talent with weapons. Due to their mutual respect for one another, the two are frequently seen training together.
  • Tenten's perfect marksmanship drew the attention of various snipers and archers in the pantheon, who wished to see her in action. She became good friends with Shino Asada/Sinon, who invited her to join in playing GGO and ALO in order to see how good she is. Surprisingly, Tenten didn't really struggle much with understanding the concept of an MMORPG, as videogames also exist in her own world, and is interested in playing both games to see what it's like. She has also earned the respect of archers such as Hawkeye, Green Arrow and Hanzo Shimada due to not only being surprisingly proficient at archery, but also having achieved that profiency in a very short time. Her interactions with Mr. Mundy are a bit less friendly, not only due to his cold attitude, but also his strained relationship with Sinon. However, he has aknowledged and complimented her excellent marksmanship and she, in turn, has developed an interest in firearms, as they don't exist in her world.
  • Tenten was amazed by the Tenno upon meeting them, as they're (primarily) ninjas and wield a whole plethora of weapons both ranged and melee. She was particularly impressed by how some of the weapons they use weren't even originally intended to be weapons, yet the Tenno still found a lethal use for them anyways. However, she was disappointed to learn that they would not be frequent customers in her shop, as most of the time they make their own gear in their ships thanks to Ordis.
  • Due to fortune-telling being her hobby, Tenten became friends with other fortune-tellers such as Madame Xanadu, Chihaya Mifune and, surprisingly, Amy Rose (who uses her fortune telling skills primarilly to know whether or not she is destined to meet Sonic). They all occasionally meet up to hold fortune-telling sessions.
  • Tenten also quickly became friends Momoko Akatsutsumi and Biscuit Krueger due to their shared attraction to Pretty Boys. Unlike them, however, Tenten is bit more cautious and generally tries to make sure that the boys she pursues are, in fact, boys, as she had once mistakenly become attracted to one who later turned out to be a girl.
  • Being a weapon seller, Tenten became something of a rival for arms dealers such as Rodin and Marcus Kincaid. However, the fact that she exclusively sells ninja tools has prevented them from developing any kind of outward antagonism, as she is unlikely to interfere in their respective businesses.
  • Still wanting to have a rematch with Temari, Tenten decided to overcome her weakness against wind-based opponents. As a result, she befriended Joe Higashi and frequently spars with him. However, she also became enemies with Leopold Goenitz, a wind-based follower of Orochi who became intrigued by Boruto after seeing his destiny.
  • When not running her shop, Tenten spends most of her at the Armory and the House of Weapons, frequently looking for either new weapons to collect or to witness the various weapon users in action.

    Xiahou Yuan 
Xiahou Yuan (style name: Miaocai), God of Bow and Close Combat Mastery (The Happy General, Miaocai, Marquis Min, Enjeru)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/XiahouYuan_7653.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Bow and Club/Sword
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Bow and Close Combat Mastery, A little fat yet powerful, improbable accuracy
  • Domains: Archery, War
  • Allies: Cao Cao, Xiahou Dun, Dian Wei, Oda Nobunaga
  • Rivals: Green Arrow, Hawkeye
  • Enemies: Lu Bu, Huang Zhong (also a close friend), the other Oda Nobunaga, Lucifer
  • He ascended after demonstrating his skill but taking out many enemy soldiers with his bow and club.
    • Gods who are verse in the Asian ports of his current portrayal find it fascinating in that his primary prior clubs have referenced the nine constellations of heaven. Xiahou Miaocai himself is proud of such a motif.
  • He's not too pleased to hear that Huang Zhong might make it to the pantheon though he would gladly take this opportunity to even the score with that old man. He only teamed up with his hated rival along with Slyvanas Windrunner, Hawkeye and Green Arrow in order to challenge the Gunslinger Quartet and show them that archers are just as good as any other gunmen. This legendary fight lead to the formation of the Five Great Archers of the Pantheon.
    • However, some people may deem Huang Zhong and him to get along as friends due to Xiahou Yuan's more jolly nature. It eventually came into true fruition ever since their war against Orochi. Xiahou Yuan is even amused in that Huang Zhong is even curious about the qualities of his son, Xiahou Ba. Yuan wishes that Huang Zhong wouldn't be so stubborn and would ask for help more often from people like him.
  • Like Cao Cao, he also dislikes this Nobunaga because of his unpleasant nature and reprehensible actions compared to the one he worked with. Thankfully for him, the Nobunaga he knew of arrived, giving him an ease in mind.
  • He is happy to join his lord and Dun along with Dian Wei and together they will end the chaos. Namely the GUAC, in particular.
  • He has come to terms that he's related with Zhang Fei of Shu via marriage between his niece and Zhang Fei's. While at first pissed that the marriage might not be one of consent and a certain crime was involved, he eventually calmed himself down and decided that there's no decisive evidence about that crime to mull it over. However, it did pique his curiosity, and when he found out from Cao Cao that there was a realm that worshipped them while being hateful on Shu for being whitewashed by Luo Guanzhong, even Xiahou Yuan wouldn't mind putting an Enemy Mine with Zhang Fei, since he can't let such hypocritical yet powerful claims bring chaos to the land.
    • He's also considering bringing Huang Zhong along for the ride just as their form of "bringing out the big guns", just in case.
      • Though after looking at his distant relative, Zhang Xingcai, Xiahou Yuan has said to himself with a few chuckles "I wonder if my niece just made Zhang Yide rather henpecked...? That Xingcai must've picked it up from her, heheheheheh....that's my niece for ya." *Small trolly smile in the distance*
  • Is rather notably getting along with his Distaff Counterpart portrayal by the name of Qiulan/Shuuran, and is quite proud of her fighting game debut; he hopes one day to give her a session in the arts of wielding a straight club just as well as he can.
  • Whenever he speaks in Japanese, people are surprised to find out that his pronoun usage is "ore-sama" while also being anything but an Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy. His jolly happy smile also seems to be quite infectious as it is shiny.

Demigods

    Revy 
Rebecca "Revy" Lee, Goddess of Guns Akimbo (Two-Hands)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/e4395e46bebe9533cf9e0b28e5a3bcf3.jpg
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: Her custom Berettas
  • Theme Song: Red Fraction
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil leaning towards True Neutral, Chaotic Evil when she loses it
  • Portfolio: Villain Protagonists, Guns Akimbo, Sociopathic Heroines, Frequent Swearing
  • Domains: Destruction, Death, Evil, Guns
  • Followers: Jake English
  • Enemies: Teana Lanster (who, although she uses a similar combat style, frowns upon Revy's callous and violent methods), Johan Liebert due to Hansel and Gretel becoming devoted to him and seeing him as a father figure to him, Lucy due to similar reasons with Johan Liebert, Hansel and Gretel, Roberta, Yuno Gasai (due to similar reasons as Hansel and Gretel), Motoko Kusanagi, Samus Aran, Noel Vermillion , Nu-13, May
  • Rival: Domino
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Noel Vermillion (When they put aside their differences.)
  • Some members of the Pantheon likes to compare her to Lara Croft at times. None of them dares to do it in Revy's presence due to her short temper, though.
  • Her opponents have grown used to not trying to Badass Boast when fighting her. She often takes it as the perfect opportunity to load them full of bullets.
  • Revy despises Yuno Gasai since she makes her think of Hansel and Gretel.
  • Since Revy and Noel Vermillion belong to different factions (GUAG and GUAE), both often fight against each other whenever they cross paths. However, they will put aside their difference when it comes to Nu-13 and Yuno Gasai.
    • Noel Vermillion is currently trying to stage a takeover against Revy or have a spot in the house as her Good Counterpart.
  • Rainbow Dash feels a bit awkward around Revy, as she has the same voice as her old friend Gilda. Revy looks at Rainbow with interest as she sounds similar to Hansel.
    • Now that Gilda has ascended, one wonders what would happen if they would meet.
  • Didn't feel too bad about Yuna, one of her previous followers, going back to her roots in the House of Magic. Yuna comes by to target practice with Revy every now and then, though.
