  • Elite Tauren Chieftain is a famous Musician known all accross the World of Azeroth and it shows as he can found battling numerous heroes in The Nexus or in a quiet Inn as a prominent player. The next big objective in ETC's mind was get a spot in the Pantheon and he surely did in a spectacular way.
    • After reviewing his history and finding out that his Music had an interesting Charm into it (Which mean that his music made people near him dance Uncontrollably) he was allowed to have the title of Involuntary Dancing.
    • It should be noted that Mosh Pit's influence is so strong that ETC can even perform it beyond the grave!
  • His band used to have different names over the course of thier career. First they were called Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain, then Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain and Level 90 ETC and Level 100 ETC, until they said "Screw it" and sticked with Elite Tauren Chieftain ever since.
  • He sports a particularly pink goatie, which he is really proud of. As a result, he has made friends with many people who also has Pink hair and is not ashamed to admit that his Favourite color is Pink.
  • Believe or not, ETC and his band used to be buddies with Arthas before. Apparently, he was the lead Guitarist of the band and even had a part in the making of "The Power of the Horde".
  • Unusually for him, ETC became friends with Sona Buvelle given that both have the power to make other people Dance uncontrollably. Even then, the Tauren is slighty dissapointed that she doesn't "Rock it out" like he does but acknowledges her power and considers her an equal.
  • He also has the ability to "Stage Dive" anywhere he wants which caught the attention of another Mighty jumper, Pantheon. While the latter is impressed by the Tauren's abilities, he still mocks him for not beings as strong as him with his jumps and became rivals ever since.
  • Ever since the release of one of his bigger hits, I Am Murloc, the Tauren has been good friends with Murky. ETC definitely enjoys the little fellow's antics.
  • He gets along surprisingly well with Diablo, even though they would more likely be enemies if the other good guys were around. ETC on his part wants Diablo to be part of the cover of his next album but the Demon is having seconds thoughts.
    • Even then, ETC will not particularly care if The Lord of Terror decides to antagonize him and even he has defeated him on a couple of occasions.
  • If you ever wondered what would have ETC become if he didn't started his band? Well, he would have tried jumping into a Country music Carrier. In fact, he once designed a costume just in case he really wanted to try Country music.
  • While he is normally a pretty Chill dude with others, he really cannot stand Brightwing, because she is always trying to befriend him and in his words, "She is ruining his cred".
    • He also can't get along with Malfurion Stormrage given his "Hippie" Personality. ETC always mock him, telling him to Go hug a tree.
  • Has declared himself the rival of Haruko Haruhara because they both use Instruments as Weapons. They often spend their time "Rocking out" in the House of Music and ETC is even considering her a spot in his band.
  • He is looking for something "Brutal" enough to be part of the cover of his next Album. He's strongly considering Abathur.
  • The Mermaid Princesses don't particularly like him, mainly due to the fact that one of their enemies back in the mortal realm had similar powers as he.
  • Also present in Support Powers.

Yew and Magnolia
  • Exclusive to Yew:
    • In his first days in the Pantheon, Yew was immediately onto recording everything he could in his journal (and even had to purchase new ones after those were full).
      • And after hearing of the House of Knowledge, he spends most of his time there if he's not with friends. Somehow, he's popular with the (non-taken) ladies there, even if he's already taken by now.
      • During one of his research sessions there, he heard a kid who knew him call for his name and asking for help in a school problem. He decided to come over and help... as did a silver-haired teenager barely older than him and who sounded just like him. Turns out his name was also pronounced the exact same way, and since both were already here, they tutored the kid, and eventually parted as friends. They would eventually meet again at the House of Combat while sparring with other folks, and that's how Yew learned about Personas.
    • While Yew's food tastes good, his cooking lacks variety, as all of his dishes are loaded with garlic and he only uses simple sauces.
    • Doesn't like Liquid Snake for not only his desire to spend chaos and shatter peace, the fact that he sounds like his brother doesn't help. Liquid likes to taunt Yew on occasions when they're in the same area by screaming "BRRRROOOOOTTTTHHHEEEEEERRRR!" at him.
    • As a Giver of Lame Names, he's never permitted to name things ever since it was revealed that he named the party's ship, which was also a bath house, the Rubadub. And that was the least lame name he had planned for it.
    • Ever since getting shot from halfway across the world by Aimee Matchlock, the more implausible a sniper's skill is, the more Yew is afraid of them, only less so if the sniper's on the good side.
    • It's hard being from a family that has done plenty of atrocities. As such, he gets along with the likes of Maria Robotnik, Lars Alexandersson, and Varric Tethras, fellow White Sheep in their families.
    • But most prominently, there's Go Shijima, whose father Tenjuro Banno, committed crimes so great that Go not only has to bear them, but also punish his dad for. Tenjuro also proved to be a bad father to him and Kiriko.
    • That said, there are also some "gray sheep" Yew cannot condone the actions of, such as Lelouch and his bloody rebellion, as well as his final Genghis Gambit.
    • Doesn't like those who reached their high station by way of connections, but respects those who earned it via their own merits (even if Yew did have noble blood to support his own standing at Al-Khampis). That said, he can't support a full-on meritocracy like what Yamato Hotsuin desires.
  • Exclusive to Magnolia:
    • As someone who came from the moon, she gets along with some deities dedicated to it, and opposes all who seek to destroy it as it had already been done in one failed timeline.
    • Only Yew knows her real name as people in the Moon only tell it to the one they marry. Not even the Celestial (the Player) knows, since they're not marrying Magnolia.

  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Music, Magic, Combat
  • Heralds: Hummy and the Fairy Tones
  • Allies: Every other Pretty Cure within the Pantheon, 2nd Division Symphogears, Madoka Kaname, the Sailor Warriors, Keroberos, Satoko Houjou, Pantheon, Chun-Li, Mai Shiranui, Väinämöinen, Tobias, Zuko, Aqua, Yurika Kirishima, Rise Kujikawa, Haruka Kotoura, Satori Komeji, Makoto Naegi, Chase/Kamen Rider Chaser, Mitsuzane Kureshima/Kamen Rider Ryugen, Mamoru Chiba/Tuxedo Mask, Koneko Toujou, Sapphire Rhondanite, Yuzuko Nonohara, Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger
  • Enemies: SHOCKER, Junko Enoshima & Monokuma, Courtney Gears, I-No and most other evil people in the House of Music
  • Conflicting Opinions: Himeko Kurusugawa & Chikane Himemiya (Kanade and Hibiki)
  • Aside of their Precure designation, they're the magical counterpart of the Symphogears, right down to fighting 'creatures' known as Noise, both having a member named 'Hibiki'. Also, Kanade shocked Tsubasa because she had the same name as her respected, deceased partner. However, the vast difference of their personalities made her shock just last about 1 second. Ako also founded interesting that they also know a person name Shirabe. And while there's no one with the name Eren that the Symphogears know, most think it's a matter of time before that change.
  • While they're no singers, all four of them are capable of playing musical instruments well. They also guard a sacred 'item' called 'Melody of Happiness', a song that is able to bring and happiness if sang. They can at least play the instruments.
  • Before ascension, it's known that both Hibiki and Kanade bicker a lot. They still do, occasionally, but they never let it get in their way to achieve their goals, whatever it is (mostly kicking evil's ass)
  • Nearly anything Hibiki does, she's betting her woman's pride on it, giving her extra drive in what she does.
  • Kanade likes to visit the House of Food, baking sweets and showing everyone there her recipe of motivation. So far, she's receiving positive reception. Especially from Keroberos.
  • They once mistook Usagi/Serena as 'Hummy's humanoid form' due to their voice and similar naivete. Of course, that got straighted out quick, but Usagi/Serena promises to introduce them her own cat familiar one day. Kanade instantly wants to know what kind of paw the latter has.
    • Kanade finally got the chance to feel Luna's paw once she ascended. She was absolutely in bliss.
    • Later on, it seems that Usagi herself has been eyeing on Hibiki herself. She says that her friend Makoto has been sounding like Hibiki...
  • After finding out the Black Hole was in the GUAE's possession, Hibiki nearly went into a panic attack, remembering what had happened the last time they dealt with him. However, she and Kanade were quickly reassured that, as long as the GUAG and the Magical Girl Sisterhood still stood, they wouldn't have to perform such a traumatic sacrifice again.
  • It's been asked before, but no. Hibiki has no relationship with Teppei Houjou. And really, just hearing his 'exploits' can make her explode and yell that he's embarrassing her with the same surname. Until she received the help of one Satoko Houjou to kick his butt.
  • At one point, Kanade was shocked that there's this muscular Spartan-like warrior, Pantheon, walking to her house. When asked about his business in the house, she was surprised that Pantheon actually asks her to teach him how to make tasty cupcakes for his 'dream profession' as a baker. Glad that's out with, Kanade willingly taught him her recipe of determination, because reaching out for dreams is very important.
  • Both Hibiki and Kanade are bit conflicted about Himeko Kurusugawa & Chikane Himemiya, more about latter. This is because of Chikane raping Himeko so she would hate her enough to kill her so she could die in Himeko's place. It's a very touchy subject for all four.
  • Eren was once ascended as the Good Counterpart to I-No's Musical Assassin. The two still clash despite losing the title.
  • Eren was once an enemy towards Hibiki and Kanade until she made a turn for good. This makes her very close to fellow Pretty Cure Setsuna Higashi and Regina who also were bad until they became good.
    • This also makes her very sympathetic towards other deities who change to good like Mitsuzane Kureshima and Chase.
  • Eren once visit the House of Love and ran into Peko Pekoyama, who mistook her for Junko Enoshima and tried to attack her. Thankfully, that was cleared up, but it left her with a massive hatred of Monokuma.
  • Occasionally, Eren can be seen reading in the House of Knowledge, although most of the books are on how to not act like a cat.
  • Ako was once a former follower of Koneko Toujou before ascending into the Pantheon. The two are still close, and occasionally meet with each other in the House of Music.
  • Kanade knows that Ako is dating her younger brother Souta. Even the other ascended Pretty Cures are impressed with that one to the point of Squeeing. This cause Ako to blush furiously.
  • Due to some similarities between them, Ako is on good terms with Chibiusa Tsukino, and occasionally spends time with Mamoru Chiba due to both of them playing semi-similar roles in the past.
  • Black Star isn't sure why Ako thinks that he sounds kind of familiar
  • Upon hearing about the ascension about an old man called Väinämöinen and his feats of magical music, they feared that he might try to do something for them. However, he had no intention to harm them or anything like that, and even acts as a sort of mentor for them. If only they would understand him most of the time...

Lesser Gods

    John "Scatman" Larkin 
Ska-badabadabadoo-belidabbelydabbladabbladabblabab-belibabbelibabbelibabbelabbelo-doobelidooI'm the Scatman!

John Paul Larkin, God of Scatting (Scatman John)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scatman.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Nice Hat
  • Theme Song: Too many to count, but his most remarkable ones are Scatman and Scatman's World
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Cool Old Guy, Disability Superpower, Motor Mouth, Nice Hat, One-Man Song
  • Domains: Music, Singers, Scatting, Disabilities
  • High Priest: Scatman Crothers
  • Allies: Porky Pig, Epic Sax Guy, SiIvaGunner, Mario, Jazz, Lisa Simpson, Mozart and Beethoven, Rowf the Dog, Kaede Akamatsu, Kousei Arima and Kaori Miyazono, The Blues Brothers, God
  • Dislikes: Scaramouche
  • Odd Friendship: Scáthach
  • Adored by: Gods from Europe and Japan
  • John Larkin, AKA Scatman John, was a famous musician who was remarkable for how he took advantage of his Speech Impediment to make music, which actually made him quite good at scatting. While he passed away on December 3, 1999; the legend of Scatman lived on and was strong enough that he was raised as the god of Scatting.
  • John was amazed by the oportunities that the Pantheon presented but he first decided to get to know his assigned house and meet other deities. Scatman has a very optimistic outlook on life even if he hadn't the easiest time living with his stuttering and many people appreciate that aspect of him.
  • His temple is officially labelled as "Scatland", a land where war and sadness do not exist and everyone gets along. On the outside his temple looks normal but those who John have personally invited for a tour have seen that Scatland is a lot Bigger on the Inside, with Scatman taking his sweet time making his temple be as welcoming to other deities as possible.
  • Scatman John never expected Porky Pig to be a pantheonic deity and given his similar stuttering the two became friends and Porky finds John's story very heartwarming. He also heard from him that his friend Daffy is a pretty good pianist sometimes so John is eager to learn of Daffy's ability.
  • Originally performed as a Jazz pianist to be involved in his passion while hiding his stuttering. Scatman John has since grown from that phase and is willing to sing more often and his connection to Jazz landed a very unlikely fan in the form of Jazz the Autobot, who is a huge fan of Jazz in general and he found John's music to be wonderful.
    • John also ended up befriending Lisa Simpson after she noticed his story mirrored the one of her deceased mentor Bleeding Gums Murphy. Scatman believes Lisa could become an accomplished saxophonist if she really puts effort and she appreaciates how kind he is.
  • John is a devout christian and prefers to not be called a god. While they belong to different genres, he and the Blues Brothers are good friends and he often joins them in their mission if he can help them in any way. Speaking of the almighty himself, he has come to respect certain versions of him and wonders if he believes he was a good man all along, which God responded by reaffirming John he indeed was a good man.
  • Scatman has broaden his horizons in terms of music as he has collabed with a colorful bunch ever since he got here. He learned of SiIvaGunner using his two best known hits as samples for his High Quality rips and John is just happy that his music brings joy even if that can be very bizarre sometimes. He also ended up teaming up with Sergey Stepanov, the legendary Epic Sax Guy, in order to release a new jazz album featuring the instrumentals from the latter.
  • While he is best known for his scatting and surprisingly catchy tunes, John is still a respected pianist when he decides to take a break from singing. He ended taking some classes from the legendary composers Mozart and Beethoven in order to improve and he even has given some pointers and listened to other skilled pianists like Kaede Akamatsu and Rowf the Dog. There was also two young musicians in particular that caught his attention were Kousei Arima and Kaori Miyazono, who in many ways mirrored Scatman's story from Kousei's troubled upbringing to Kaori's illness and being an optimistic person regardless of that. The two respect him a lot for managing to achieve what he did even if he was approaching his twilight years.
  • While John may be one of the friendliest deities in the pantheon, he does understand there is bound to be a few bad apples. Case in point, Scatman is not a big fan of Scaramouche given that he uses Scatting for very evil purposes but at least has complimented his abilities at least. He wouldn't mind working him if he wasn't a hired assassin.
  • He is aware that the tern "Scat" has picked up another meaning over the years and had to clarify that his name is related to musically scatting. He shares this burden with Scáthach, who possibly has it worse since that's her real name. She finds John to be quite a heartwarming fellow and acts a lot nicer to him that she is otherwise, especially for trying to make the world a better place.
  • Apparently his scatting has been linked to Mario of all people, particularly on some of the 64 bloopers according to certain sources. As a fellow good-natured moustache man, John doesn't mind it and is good friends with Mario.
  • Notably for being really popular in Europe and Japan, not only for his most famous tunes being Eurodance but in Japan he even released exclusive tracks that not many people have heard. He tries to let his fame get to his head and still plans to invite all the good souls to join him on Scatland.
  • "I welcome you to Scatman's World"

  • Feared by: Ramo, Lola and Quill
  • Ask around the House of War about how battles are won. They'll probably recite stuff about tactics, strategy, logistics, the quality of equipment and soldiers, and a whole load of other factors. Well they're wrong. All major battles in history were won by throwing giant boulders down a hill. Case in point: Sisyphus, King of Ephyra, condemned for his trickery and cheating of death to the hellish punishment of rolling a boulder up on the hill. Forever... Then dear Sisy and the boulder got tired of that and used the latter to escape the Underworld and enjoy newfound freedom. This boulder, who we'll identify as the Rock of Ages from here on out for sanity's sake, would go on to wreck havoc across history. Smashing buildings, fighting spirits of the ages, and overall just squishing people as they futilely try to squish his master with their own boulder. Yes, the games run on an Excuse Plot for such Genre-Busting gameplay involving the squishing of people and their puny little defenses with giant rocks, but they're good Excuse Plots.
  • It was yet another quiet day in the Pantheon. One of the more same-old, same-old. Clear blue skies, fresh air, and Wile E. Coyote (gluttunous foolii) was out conducting another one of his schemes to catch the Road Runner (acceleratii feathacus). Indeed, business as usual. And today he's was committed to another one of his schemes to catch the Road Runner. Setting up a yet another makeshift see-saw and giant boulder he planned to nail the speedy bird when the time was right. Alas, the result remained constant and the Coyote was squashed as flat as paper. Then the boulder proceeded to jump from the crushed predator and rolled off to parts unknown. Later that day a rather heated dispute erupted between two gods and before anyone knew it one of them was crushed flat by that same giant boulder which bore a face. The whole thing was rather hard to miss, the entirety of the ordeal was in tune to Dies Irae as the soon-to-be-pancaked god pleaded for mercy. After some review from the Court of Gods it was at this point that the particular boulder itself would ascend as the Patron Saint of Usage of Iconic Scores for the ubiquitous use of often times classical pieces in its games' soundtracks which of course includes the use of Dies Irae. There's some alterations, sure, but at the end of the day they're still recognizable once heard by ear.
  • It, along with the boulders following it, can come in a variety of different forms. There is, of course, your standard vanilla Rock of Ages but there's also stranger ones like those encased in armor, shaped like a wheel, made of magma, is a balloon/a really rotund cow, and an outright bomb with the fuse to boot. Now, you may raise the question of: Wouldn't many of them not be boulders anymore? By definition they are large objects made up of rock and blah blah blah blah blah. Why would you care? Why draw the line here of all places? But if we were to give a properly formal and constructive answer: "Break thee off unless thee wanteth to beest did crush by a rocketh too, thee clotpole"Translation .
  • Since its ascension the art of throwing giant boulders down a hill has been something of a tool to settle disputes, major and minor alike. Now, if they aren't use to crush people like they're potatoes in an upcoming salad then they're also used for things such as obstacle course racing or a giant version of skee-ball. If all else fails, however, there is the tried and true method to settling the score: Holy foosball.
  • Has met (and crushed) a great deal of many famous figures throughout the ages, many of whom have already made their residence in the Pantheon. This large (and still incomplete) list includes the likes of Leonidas, Vlad the Impaler, Leonardo da Vinci, Bacchus, Archangel Michael, Marie Antoinette, Napoleon Bonaparte, Jeanne D'Arc, King Henry VIII, Vincent Van Gogh, Baba Yaga, Hercules, Medusa, Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan, Grigori Rasputin, and even the Flying Spaghetti Monster. You would be surprised how none of them hold any grudges towards the boulder, and some of them have even partied with Sisyphus in the afterlife without a hint of ill will. It would help that they all have boulders of their own and frequently employ it to crush other people at a moment's notice. That, and when they're using these rocks they tend to become pretty nutty. Bacchus, for example, is constantly hungry and anything he comes across he's willing to slurp like fresh ramen. Leonardo da Vinci, meanwhile, is apparently disgusted by the existence of the deranged activity known as video games whereas Jeanne D'Arc mistook hearing God's voice asking where Atlas went as a call to action and is notably more out-there than ever. And that's not going over Vincent Van Gogh being a creepy oil-paint vomiting monster...
    • It wasn't entirely sunshine and rainbows for this big little rock. Cronus is still peeved at the boulder for being complacent in Sisyphus' escape from his punishment and when he tried to drag him back the boulder defeated him the only way it knew how. Cleopatra VII also has it out for the rock for smashing The Sphinx's nose repeatedly, though she didn't know that until the rock itself came to the Pantheon and thought nothing more of it when she put a Cone of Shame on the Sphinx. Meanwhile Gandalf and Simon Belmont have it out due to being killed by said boulder (or rather, Vlad's own boulder). Killed unceremoniously, we might add. The worst kind.
  • And speaking of Sisyphus' escape, both Thanatos and Hades were rather angry at the boulder for essentially help break out someone who conned even the gods themselves out of his prison. Thanatos especially has a rocky relationship with it considering he was chained up and made a fool of by Sisyphus himself. The only reason neither of them are outright enemies is because of said boulder's beef with Cronus, and both relished in replaying that final hit on their progenitor. And anyone with some knowledge in mythology ought to know that Greek Gods and Titans go well together like oil and water.
  • Despite his horrible track record with boulders, this one included, Wile E. Coyote still employs it and its Heralds into his schemes involving the Road Runner. In all honesty the rock doesn't have anything against him or the super speedy avian but just kinda wishes it would leave it and its Heralds out of their conflict completely. After the Coyote at one point got smashed by the Fire Boulder and blown to pieces by the Gunpowder Boulder out of nowhere you'd think that maybe it's a sign that involving boulders his plans is destined to fail but there's epiphany for, unfortunately. Such is the nature of the Road Runner vs. Coyote.
  • Being a boulder capable of thought and feeling it caught the interest of Maud Pie and Tiny the Stone Giant and can often be seen hanging out with them not really doing much of anything, just being in their company. Woe to those who mess with them while the boulder is aound, a Fast Ball Special with it as the ball and them as the pitcher will not end well. No cow-powered fans would be able to help you by that point. Aside from them the boulder can also be seen lounging around both the House of Earth & Rock and the House of Metal & Minerals. Freqeuently, it and its Heralds test their mettle with the Monkeys, owing to their shared origins of Tower Defense even if the Monkeys are from a more straightforward example. They're pretty cautious of the balloon-like boulders, though.
    • To many a god's horror both the Goat and the Goose have not only found the boulder one day but have also successfully befriended it and has from then on been involved in all sorts of destructive shenanigans with them. What's worse is that countering them with another boulder and defenses is easier said than done as apparently the Goat took lessons from The Great He-Goat and passed it on to the Goose. In one such chaotic adventure involving the boulder and its numerous Heralds they had somehow managed to sow untold amounts of chaos in the House of Commerce. Not only did they destroy a sizable portion of the House but also made some serious dough too. The House has since sworn revenge and enacted a ban but given this is the Goat and Goose they're dealing with it's more than likely a futile effort.
  • In addition to a Titan and a Sphinx this rock has fought other otherwise greater threats. Giant mechanized statutes, an angel and a demon, and some dragons too. While the Houses of Angels, Demons, and Dragons have taken notice and aren't quite as willing to write it off normally they are honestly more so baffled by it all. Like really, how can some of their kin get done in by a rock of all things? Additionally, in the House of Demons you'll find some hushed sniggering by the existence of Urian. Meanwhile some aspiring mech-building Gadgeteer Geniuses taking note to protect the privates. You don't think a giant robot would be vulnerable to something like a Groin Attack but you'd be surprised.
  • It wasn't just figures in history, literature, and art that got tangled with the intricate skill of throwing giant boulders down a hill. Isaac, along with the other "forms" of ??? and Azazel he sometimes takes, have participated in such acts as well. To further drive home the point he even has rocks that bear a striking resemblance to his face which is noted to be as floaty as the cow and balloon boulders. Quite an unusual boulder... is what we would say but there are some who through a block of stone off a hill and make it work. Lack of actual acceleration be damned.
  • This boulder has the uncanny ability to make its opponents, when cornered, scream like a little girl. It matters not if they're men, a sentient goat and burning giraffe, the zombified corpses of Plato and Aristotle, the personification of The Black Death, or the figure in The Scream. Although, that last one probably goes without saying. You'd scream too if the sunscreen you applied on your face turned out to be super glue. And no, your tears won't help loosen it.
  • Anyone who went through the classic Indy Escape with a boulder chasing them down naturally did not come to like the Rock of Ages or its various Heralds. A giant rock coming to crush you is pretty bad. A giant rock coming to crush you that is also cognizant and able to move on its own accord? Pretty worse. Now, there's too many who went through such an ordeal but the highlights include, of course, Indiana Jones himself, Crash Bandicoot, and Leon S. Kennedy. Chris Redfield would of been apart of this list too but the Rock and its Heralds fear it after hearing of his final confrontation with Wesker where he punches boulders with nothing but his bare hands.
  • Recently, the Rock was involved in a third time-traveling adventure, where it helped Elpenor and the crew of Odysseus make it back home while crushing all those who stood in their way. (The Rock, you see, had been made to block the cave of Polyphemus the cyclops.) During this affair, the Rock challenged Poseidon to a race and defeated him, as well as saving the crew from Moby-Dick when the whale attacked their ship.
    • At one point during this adventure, the Rock was made to fight in a Mortal Kombat like setting against the Vitruvian Man, who acted very much like a Shokan, and won against it. Despite this show of power, Shao Kahn has refused to let the Rock take part in any tournaments, on the grounds that a boulder is not technically a fighter, and that it will likely crush anyone it faces.

  • Rivals: Birdie, most gang member gods
  • There was a huge mystery surrounding the disappearance of Alex Delarge. Formerly the Greater God of Ultraviolence, it was revealed that he had been stripped of his title by force: He was caught rummaging through Purgatorium, where he was accused of killing a local woman (though here are reports that the murder charge was fabricated). YHVH took the opportunity to test out his latest experiment to 'fix' troublemakers and release them to society with a strenuous (and some would say torturous) procedure that ended up depowering him. His attempts to return to the society that despised him were disastrous, going through a Humiliation Conga that culminated in a suicide attempt. Only the intervention of Chaos saved his life, offering up a new position for him. Alex jumped at the chance of redemption, offering his loyalty to the God of Chaos. Still, these events have severely weakened him and is not nearly at the same strength that he used to be.
  • Nowadays, he's not that far from GUAC headquarters, spending his time engaging in a bit of the old ultraviolence, the in-and-out and drinking milk. All to the tune of usually sunny songs such as Singing in the Rain. He abhors YHVH just for the fact that his philosophy stands against everything he loves, not to mention subjecting him to torture and temporally depowering him. Melkor's neglect of his plight has caused Alex to despise him as well, now aligning himself with Lucifer.
  • He was delighted to hear that his new temple was the same as his inspiration, Ludwig van. Beethoven can only ask for Picard to grant him infinite facepalms. Nevertheless, Alex is a staunch supporter, and will respond to anyone who criticizes his favorite musician with a cane to the nads.
  • Torchwick could help but appreciate the coming of his inspiration, handing him a customized cane for keeping. Still, the God of Canes wish the young lad could channel his tenacity into something more meaningful (namely serving his own interests). The friendship has put team RWBY on edge. Given the nature of Delarge's motivations, it wasn't difficult putting him on their shitlist.
  • Has been banned from most parts of the House of Love due to obvious reasons. To the shock of many, the House of Lust has allowed him entry as long as he behaves. Many in that subhouse admit that the man is a smooth sweet talker when he decides to ask and pretty good in the hay too. The mere threat of sending him to Slaanesh is more than enough to keep him in line.
    • One woman who resents the decision is Red Sonja. She swears to put his head on a pick if she ever lays her eyes on him. It with good reason that Alex only visits when he knows the She-Devil is not around.
    • This has earned the bitterness of Gregor Clegane, who sees this as an unfair bias against him. Alex merely sees him as a poor excuse of a rapist.
    • Bellatrix Lestrange made the mistake of thinking he boy would be easy prey for torture. That turned out to be a mistake as he caught her offguard with a sucker punch to the gut and a cane to the head, sending her sprawling before he took off. Quite a few in the House of Lust couldn't help but snicker at her embarrassment by a mere muggle. The witch did not take his lightly and plans on his capture and descent into insanity.
    • Probably one of the few gods in the House who likes his constant company, Moxxi enjoys his willingness to volunteer in the Circles of Slaughter. For his part, he acts like a complete gentleman in her presence. It's safe to say that the two like their sex rough whenever thay enter the bedroom.
  • Often spends time in the House of Commerce, mostly to beat the crude out of Chester A. Bum, god of the homeless. His hatred of stinky, poor old men is well documented.
  • Isabela publicly outed him out to a duel, not surprisingly the one involving weapons due to her resentment towards rapists. Her pirates fought against his drooges for several minutes, but the the resulting duel put the Pirate Queen on top. many gods believe that a rematch is inevitable.
  • Found out there was a rival hooligan in town that ascended while he was gone. Birdie and Delarge often to battle against each other for supremacy. So far, both sides seem to be equal in strength. Alex just enjoys the fact he has a group to dish out a bit on the old ultraviolence on.
  • Is under the supervision of Omar Little, who was not pleased with his acts of violence on women. To his surprise, Delarge is one of the few gods who won't back down. Not even in his presence. Though Omar merely suggests this is due to Alex being to young and dumb to realize what he's dealing with. The Karmic Thief hopes to make him learn some day.
  • If there's one thing the House of Justice admits to be a blessing, it's rattling the pot of the criminal underworld. His tendency to break out in fight with rival gangs has been exhausted their resources by fending him off. The only reason he hasn't been dealt with is that he's mostly harmless and the fact that many believe his depowering was unjustified.
Viddy well little brother, viddy well.

    The Dancing Skeletons 
The Dancing Skeletons, Deities of Dancing Undead and Xylobones
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/The_Skeleton_Dance_8632.jpg

  • Symbol: Femurs hitting ribcages
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Dem Bones, Mime and Music-Only Cartoon, Just Want To Have Fun Though Some Are Pricks, The Dead Can Dance, Xylophones for Walking Bones, Uses Their Bones As Instruments, Rubber Hose Bones, Mickey Mousing
  • Domains: Cartoons, Skeletons, Comedy, Dancing, Music, Bones
  • Allies: Jack Skellington, Sans and Papyrus, Lord Death, Death(Regular Show), Grim, Hector, Ember McClain, Brook, Karthus, Amigo, Lord Raptor, Marceline Abadeer
  • On good terms with: Night-related deities (Princess Luna, Nightmare Moon, Selene, Nox)
  • Enemies: Nekron and the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, The Grand Duke of Owls, Dhuum, Chernabog
  • Avoids: Deities who control the day
  • During the day, the dead stay in their graves. But during the night, the skeletons get out of their grave and dance. They can use their bones in playful manners, most notably ribcages as makeshift xylophones. These spooky scary skeletons were the first of the Silly Symphonies.
  • Though they appeared in a short and never spoke, their charm and merriment was an iconic moment in animation. It's actually a reference to the danse macabre. They were very happy to learn there was another skeletal entertainer, Brook, in the House of Music. The skeletons now serve as Brook's back-up singers.
  • Stand up for the argument that "dead lives matter" and Dark Is Not Evil. They work to give the undead a better name, and perform for living deities that enter. Sans and Papyrus consider them to be really fun and have joined them in the dance. Only during the night however, as during the day they sleep.
  • As they are only active during the night, they avoid any day-related deity. Instead, they prefer to be under the cover of night and moon-related deities. The big exception to this is Chernabog, who's own views on ghoulish entertainment is corruption and acts of evil. He betrays the night, in their eyes.
  • They don't like Nekron, and Nekron doesn't like them. Nekron is of the belief that death is a silence and peace that all must undergo, and finds the Dancing Skeletons to be an insult to death. The Dancing Skeletons in turn see Nekron as a cosmic killjoy who gives the undead a bad name, and they don't want everyone to die. They are afraid his herald might control them with his Black Lantern powers, though even Black Hand sometimes joins in with their merriment. He actually seems to like them.
  • Some of the evil undead do get along with the Dancing Skeletons, such as Lord Raptor who loves rocking out with them. Of course, this could be because some of the skeletons are assholes like one who used a cat as a violin. Karthus' positive attributes are shown whenever he hangs out with them, treating them with the upmost respect. Sometimes they get to come to Pentakill concerts.
  • Jack Skellington was the exact kind of "skele-bro" they were fond of. He's an excellent host, and they feel at home in Halloweentown. Unlike Nekron, reapers Lord Death, Grim and the Death of Regular Show enjoyed them. Dhuum, on the other hand, hates the fact that they're undead and don't just stay in their graves like everyone who died is supposed to(according to him, of course).
  • Don't like owls, as they tend to spook them. One of them threw their skull at an owl to get it to quit hooing. The Grand Duke of Owls spooked many of them, and while they do like the idea of a night that never ends they don't like the idea of an evil owl bringing it forth.
  • Marceline has joined in their fun, and introduced rock and roll. Being from 1929 it wasn't something they knew about, but it was something that really caught on with them. As did Amigo, who livened up the place. Jack O'Lantern tried to get in, but they had already sided with Jack Skellington and opposed his efforts. Also, his pranks were pretty cruel, though some of them thought they were Actually Pretty Funny. Hector and Ember McClainget along with them as well.
  • Off duty Guardians, when given the opportunity in the dead of night, also join in with the Dancing Skeletons. Despite their looks, they're actually liches. Of course, the Guardians who wield Solar abilities are mindful to hide them when accompanying them.

    Dr. Zalost 
Dr. Zalost, God of Sad and Haunting Scores
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dr_zalost.png
Zalost after his change of heart 
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The letter "Z" framed in gold
  • Theme Song: The Tower of Dr. Zalost
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral with shades of Neutral Evil. True Neutral leaning towards Neutral Good after his change of heart
  • Portfolio: Tragic Villain, Initially Green-Skinned, Evil Sounds Deep, Gloomy and Depressed which makes him want to make everyone feel as he does, Lean and Mean, Mad Scientist, Meaningful Name, Sore Loser, Becomes a better person after eating Muriel's Happy Plums
  • Domains: Science, Sadness, Tragedy, Villainy, Happiness, Music
  • Herald: Rat, his assistant.
  • Allies: Courage, Muriel Bagge, Eustace Bagge, Sadness, The Doki Doki Literature Club, Simon Henriksson, Eeyore, Hikari, Rapunzel, Pinky and the Brain
  • Rivals: Dr. Evil
  • Enemies: Dementors, Ratigan, Nerose Satanael, Dr. Screwball Jones
  • Depression is often a condition that can plague basically anyone in the world and such fate fell upon the tragic figure of Dr. Zalost. A brilliant scientist who one day came to Nowhere and demanded huge amounts of money to fund his unhappy cannonballs project. He attacked the town after being negated his money and being mocked, causing everyone to be as unhappy and as miserable as he was, but even if he got what he wanted he was still not happy. That's when he came accross Courage and the Bagges, who Zalost decided to target after realizing there were people that he missed. After hitting Muriel, Courage embarked in a quest to save her and in doing so brought down Zalost's Tower and the Doctor was not happy with that. However, after eating Muriel's Happy Plums, Zalost became a more cheerier person and realized the errors of his way. That's why much later he ended up atoning for what he did and later awarded godhood thanks to a recommendation by his new friend Courage.
  • The reason for his arrival? The forebonding and sad music that encompasses his present, hinting at Zalost truly sad existance. His title isn't really representative of what he became after losing his tower to Courage and would rather not be near a place as dreary as the side of the House of Emotion he was put in and so prefers to stay in the House of Music instead.
  • As stated before, Zalost is a reformed person and a good friend of Courage, often visiting him and Muriel to have himself a doze of those happy plums. He also brought along Rat, who was turned into a baby after eating a happy plum and Zalost has tried his best to raise him right after mistreating him a lot, often giving Rat lots and lost of hugs.
  • Zalost means sorrow in slavic languages and the good doctor has tried his best to combat his constant sadness and depression even if he was misguided in his attempts. He also ended up making friends with several people who too suffered with depression one way or another although they wouldn't go as far as to harm others because of that like Zalost did. He is often seen with unlikely people you would find someone of his archetype, like that one time he joined the Doki Doki Literature Club because he thought doing poetry would be fun and he find a lot of common ground with Sayori and believe it or not, relating a lot to Monika for their shared roles as Tragic Villains who regret their actions.
    • Related a lot to Simon Henriksson in the sense of how they wanted to take their rage upon others because of their depression. Simon was initially hesitant to approach Zalost not because of his appearance but because he has had his share of bad experiences with Mad Scientists but after noticing that Zalost was too a struggling person just like him, he decided to give him a chance.
    • Hikari was another one who overcame her own depression thanks to help from other parties and as a future cinema director she though making a documentary on Dr. Zalost tale would be a good starting point. She approached him with the idea and he instantly fell in love with it, but he is not too happy to relieve those sad memories but if he at least gets to do something fun and make more friends then he is up to it.
  • Dr. Evil was a bit jealous that Zalost was succesful in his attempts of ransoming money out of the Nowhere Mayor unlike Evil's plan to get 1 billion dollars. He is also a bit dissapointed that he stop being evil and is dedicated to finding ways to be a heroic figure but he is not overly antagonistic towards him and more of a rival.
  • Given that Courage accidentally found a way to turn his Unhappy Bombs into Happy Bombs, Dr. Zalost has been studying Muriel's happy plums in order to find a way to make incredibly sad people like he used to be feel fine again. His first test subject was Eeyore, notorious for how gloomy he is and shoot a ball to see if he felt better. It worked for the most part, as Eeyore felt a little more upbeat than usual but later returned to his usual self. Zalost is hopeful he could repicate the result that undid his attack in Nowhere.
    • However, he received some backlash by some deities for trying to force people into being happy, something he couldn't quite understand why would people dislike what he is doing. He later learned that some people trying to force happiness into people regardless of their feelings like Nerose Satanael and Dr. Screwball Jones. In a Heel Realization, Zalost discovered that he maybe shouldn't try to push his attempts at making Happy Bombs but he still believes it could help some people feel better.
  • He still lives in his tower but has taken a great effort to make it less ominous. It's officially labelled as his temple and he can take his tower whenever he wants to, making it a few of temples that can move from their established location, but for the sake of being simple he is officially listed in a single place to avoid any confusion. Rapunzel got a few nasty memories after a chance encounter with the tower but thought Dr. Zalost himself was a nice individual overall and even became friends with him.
  • Often seen visiting the House of Rabbits & Rodents since that's where usually he takes Rat to make friends. Rat has grown up a little ever since he was shrunk down to a baby and he is not as grumpy as before (although he is bound to let an annoyed grunt out whenever Zalost makes a bad joke). Outside of that house the duo tend to be seen with both Pinky and the Brain, mostly because the latter respects Zalost inventions and wouldn't mind using those for World Domination but knows that Dr. Zalost wouldn't allow him to use them.
    • However, neither Zalost nor Rat are big fans of Ratigan, who tried to coerce Rat to join him in his criminal activities, with Rat just groaning at his insistance and not bothering to respond to his proposal. Ratigan since then wants to get back at them but knows that the Doctor is more dangerous than he looks.
  • If there is one thing he would rather avoid is succumbing to his sadness again and that's why he both fears and hates the Dementors for feeding on emotions, not helping that the creatures took an interest on Zalost Unhappy Bombs. He was also initially a bit wary of Sadness, the Anthropomorphic Personification of said emotion, but seeing as she was just an emotion from another person who too suffered with similar complicated feelings he felt more comfortable becoming her friend (She is a bit horrified at the prospect of Unhappy Bombs but she doesn't hold it against the doctor).
  • Loves hugs and can be often seen hugging Rat whenever he has nothing better to do. He will often go looking for cozy people to share hugs with and he even is trying to open a program where sad people will get free hugs in order to feel better.
  • Can also be found at Sadness, but he prefers not to stick around much there.

  • Hangs out with Snow White, Cinderella and Aurora in the House of Royalty where they have their animal friends help clean up. The other three princesses have gotten used to the cockroaches, rats and flies that Giselle brought with her.
  • The Music Meister sees her as his rival, seeing as she can make people go into a huge Crowd Song at her leisure. Giselle argues back that she doesn't do it out of any evil, compared to him.
  • Master Xehanort is looking at her to see whether or not she can be used as a replacement Princess of Heart, since there's still one missing from the pantheon. Giselle has no response to this.
    • He's since changed his mind after discovering that the Unknown Thief also lacks darkness in her heart, and is opting to use her instead. Xehanort has no idea that the Thief is the missing Princess of Heart: Kairi. When she heard of this, Giselle was relieved that she's no longer being stalked.
  • Loves going to the House of Craft to sew dresses. Many Gods have complained when they wake up in the morning to find their bedsheets and curtains with giant dress-sized holes in them, though.
  • Has been known to hang out with Lois Lane on occasion, sharing a laugh at their occasional look-alike status. Lois has been silent so far on whether she's ever joined in singing with the princess, although Giselle's been known to sing "Can You Read My Mind" on occasion....
  • Once the Heptapods mistook her for Louise Banks, leading to an amusing incident where Giselle sung about them. The aliens are still trying to both translate the song to their language, and understand why every other human around was entranced by it.

  • Enemies: Ganondorf Dragmire, Ghirahim, Zant, The Sumeragi Swordsmen, Zonda and the Seven
  • In the windy canyons of the Tabantha Frontier lies the Rito Village, the home of a race of avian humanoids known as the Rito. While the Rito are primarily known for their excellent archers, they are also known for singers such as Kass the wandering minstrel. Having left his family behind in Rito Village, Kass travels across the land of Hyrule to learn new songs in each region, with each song often containing hints regarding hidden secrets for Link to find. Although Kass's assistance of Link may appear to be coincidental, Kass is actually helping the Hylian Champion so that he can keep alive the memory of his teacher, who was a Sheikah poet that harbored feelings for Zelda but had put them aside to collect songs about the Champion in the hopes that the songs will someday help Link. Now that the bard is in the pantheon, Kass is looking forward to acquiring new songs that might aid Link in his adventures.
  • Realizing that there were not only more deities from his franchise residing in the pantheon, but that they also originated from different eras and timelines altogether, Kass immediately set out to find said deities in the hopes that they will provide him with many more songs for the Champion.
    • One of the first people that Kass encountered in the pantheon was the Hylian Champion himself, who found Kass practicing with his accordion on the tallest mountain in the house of Nature. Link of course stopped by to listen to an ancient verse that Kass was reciting that pointed towards a hidden shrine in the house of Undead, to which Link paraglided to after Kass finished. Sure enough, by the time Link had gotten to the shrine, Kass was somehow already there, practicing yet another verse. To this day, Link is still uncertain as to how Kass is able to do that.
      • Kass was more than delighted to finally meet Princess Zelda in the pantheon, and has promised her that he will do everything in his power to craft a song worthy enough for her. That said, Zelda admitting that she had no idea who his teacher was even though he was one of her courtiers had upset the Rito bard greatly.
    • Since his former teacher was a member of the Sheikah tribe, Kass was pleased to meet with Impa, the tribe's elder. At first, Kass was thankful of Impa for bringing the Champion to the Shrine of Resurrection. However, first meeting between the bard and the elder almost instantaneously descended into bickering when Impa stated that Link should be with her granddaughter Paya instead of Zelda. While the two were able to put aside quarreling over the matter, it still remains a sore spot between the two.
    • Kass was a little surprised to find out that there was another Rito in the pantheon. He was even more surprised when said Rito was Medli, who looked less like an anthropomorphic avian and more like a normal Hylian girl with a bird-like nose and arms that can turn into wings. Still, Kass was able to befriend the young Rito, and the two of them even join up time to time to perform a duet for Link.
    • Wasn't exactly excited to hear that Ganon was already in the pantheon before he ascended, especially since the Demon King can switch between his humanoid form and the animalistic, malevolent force that ravaged the Hyrule that Kass had originated from. Ganondorf's followers, Zant and Ghirahim, also aren't fond of the bard for helping Link locate shrines throughout Hyrule, with Ghirahim even planning on killing the bird in the most painful way possible.
  • Was welcomed into the pantheon by Edward Chris von Muir, who introduced Kass to fellow bards Elan and Leliana. While Kass has gotten along with Edward and Elan just fine (even if their combined foolishness has exacerbated him on more than one occasion), Kass is noticeably more put off by Leliana given her former occupation as an Orlesian assassin. Not to mention that Kass still hasn't forgiven Leliana for that one time where she referred to Link as "one of the good elves."
    • Managed to befriend Brook after the Gentleman Skeleton had accidentally scared the Rito to death with his skeletal appearance. After calming the bard down, the two properly introduced themselves to eacher other after hearing about Kass' tendency to collect songs from certain regions, Brook decided to contribute by playing a violin version of Bink's Sake. Needless to say, Kass absolutely enjoyed the song, and hopes to create an accordion version to play for Brook and the rest of the Straw Hats one day.
    • Kass has also allied himself with Kiwi the Bard, whom Kass respects over how they had Jumped at the Call to be hero by leading the Wandersong even when they were weighed down by things like not being the only chosen one in his world. While Kass is unable to provide Kiwi with any sort of Magic Music, the Rito still hopes to use whatever talents he has to assist the Bard however he can, talents which include a rather... unorthodox fighting style.
  • While he was traveling through the House of Nice & Nasty, Kass stumbled upon Gunvolt, with the latter being drawn to the sound of the former's accordion music. After Kass had exchanged his story with the Azure Striker, Gunvolt in turn told Kass about how the Rito had reminded Gunvolt of Joule, a singer who utilized Magic Music to aid Gunvolt in his world. Delighted by this newfound knowledge, Kass, while unable to provide Gunvolt with Magic Music, has opted to help the Adept by showing him the various shortcuts that Kass has encountered throughout the pantheon so that Azure Striker will not have anymore trouble navigating the pantheon.
    • Kass' support of Gunvolt has unfortunately made him an enemy of both the Sumeragi Swordsmen and Zonda and the Grimoired Seven. While the former are planning on capturing Kass alive in order to subject him to increasingly tortuous experiments, the latter are in the middle of a debate over whether or not killing Kass counts toward their ultimate goal of killing all of humanity.
  • May the light illuminate your path.

    The Mad Piano 
The Mad Piano, Infernal Deity of Improbable Piano Key Physics (Killer Piano, Vampiano, Pianoforte)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mad_piano.jpg

  • Symbol: Itself
  • Theme Song: Haunted House (Super Mario 64)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Jump Scare, Scary Teeth, Paper-Thin Disguise, Instrument of Murder, Nigh-Invulnerability
  • Domains: Pianos, Teeth, Fear
  • Allies: None. Don't bother asking
  • Enemies: Anyone that thinks it's an actual piano
  • At first the thing looks like a regular piano, but as one gets closer to it, it makes a noise that is a mix of someone banging on piano keys and chomping. The surprise is bound to have people running away when they first witness it coming to life upon getting too close to it. If one were to take a look at the keys while it is attacking before fleeing, it looks like the keys are moving.
  • The Pantheon got an unusual package one day that was directed to the House of Music rather than the Treasures as was the norm for any sort of package. It looked like a regular piano, but it was stated that it wasn't what it appeared to be. The thing didn't get much attention until someone wanted to take piano lessons and was directed to this piano. To that deity's shock, it tried to eat him alive and that deity ran in fear.
    • Following the incident, a few requested that the piano be removed, but the request was turned down as the piano was somehow given a title and place to stay in the Pantheon.
      • It was later discovered that Trollkaiger was responsible for this turn of events. As for that group, as they were celebrating the occassion and started to play the piano, it came to life and attempted to eat them alive. Needless to say, the group had to run for it after their own prank turned against them.
  • Some think that a red coin is attached behind it. The claims are false, but it hasn't stopped some from making dare challenges out of it for others to handle.
  • Sometimes it will attack the instant someone gets to close to it. Other times, it waits a little bit before making its move on them. Its this unpredictability that makes it feared by many.
  • Given how surprisingly sturdy it is, a few ideas have been tossed around on how to damage the piano. Progress has been slow to say the least.
  • No one is bothering to think about how to use it as a legitimate weapon, simply because many think that the piano will turn against the user as soon as it attacks.
  • Dancing on the piano is not advised at all. Snoopy learned it the hard way and decided not to go near it following the encounter.
  • Rumors have been spreading that Diablo is actually afraid of the piano. Any attempts to ask him about it will result in a severe punishment at his hands. The fact that he reacts as such didn't really help his case, as it led others to believe that he truly is afraid of the piano.
    • Some of the other members of the House of Fear (alongside the Emotion Fear) are believed to be afraid of the piano as well, though to varying degrees.
  • Some of the more paranoid gods are thinking that it will team up with the Perfect Trumpet Thingy in order to scare as many deities as possible. It isn't true, simply because the piano is always visible in one room while the Blue Creature is (apparently) invisible with no possible indication of when it will strike.
  • A few deities (at least the German ones) have called it the Vampiano. It's been debated as to whether or not the spirit of an evil vampire has possessed the piano.
  • Chuggaaconroy came across said piano while making a let's play for Super Mario 64 DS, and tried to go over why it was so dangerous and scary. This was the result of his efforts. It was possibly the only time that the deities thought that the piano was Actually Pretty Funny.

  • Kurt was the first of thee New Directions to ascend in the Pantheon. A beloved character, he was thought to be one of the prettiest boys in the Pantheon. Yet his popularity waned along with that of the show he was in, and before long he had all but disappeared from the Pantheon. As it turns out, he was only planning. It wasn't long before he returned, and this time be brought his entire Glee Club with him. The wait was due to the long argument over who would ascend. In the end, they decided to go with the founding members of the New Directions as well as their teacher Will. Together, they plan to be the best Glee Club in the Pantheon.
  • Almost immediately after their ascension, they were harassed by the Greendale Study group, trashing their opening number in the Pantheon. The group has not forgotten the time when Kurt nearly successfully turned their group into a Glee Club. The two groups have been at each others' throats ever since.
  • The world is also home of one of Agatha Trunchbull's most popular subjects: Sue Sylvester. The gym teacher spent much of her time disrupting the Glee Club at every turn, yet she became one of the most popular characters in the show her her actions. While Sue herself hasn't ascended yet, Agatha grants her limited access to the Pantheon to harass the New Directions. However, this hasn't always been the case, as she has a tendency of helping them take on an even greater threat.
  • The House of Music's reaction to their ascension has been mixed. The Glee Club are well known for their insistence of using songs of beloved singers into their fold, including those who have spots in the Pantheon. Some of the ascended did not like others to take credit for the songs they have created themselves while others felt flattered for others to use bring their songs out for the modern era.
  • Of course, one of the Master Composers have taken a big liking to them. As with the New Directions, Freddie Mercury spent much of his life doing cover versions of songs before making it big with his band. The lead singer was pleased that a show about cover songs managed to be so popular. As such, he was one of the big reasons why the group managed to ascend.
  • Everyone was fairly excited to find out that there were other high school band groups in the Pantheon. New Directions quickly took them for competition for the title of best high school music group. The School Idols know they are at least better at dance (though Brittany and Mike give them pause) while Tea Time claim to be louder despite the lack of variety.
  • The Glee Club is usually good friends with the Flash... until he looks like his CW counterpart. Then they can't help but be reminded of Sebastian Smythe, a private school student who was once their rivals. Kurt in particular did not like the times he tried to ruin his relationships. While all of that drama is now water under the bridge, they remain at arms length from that version of the Scarlet Speedster.
  • Lady Gaga was quite pleased with their ascension. The group dedicated two episodes to the Goddess of Outlandish Costumes as well as a number of other songs. She considers the appreciation a 'dream' come true and often collaborates with the club on some of their acts.
  • Have volunteered to be one of many Crowd Singers what come up whenever Giselle finds the need to belt out a number. Brittany and Mike provide the dancing as well. As both are fond of using situations to sing a song, the two clergy get along nicely.
  • While the group mostly focus on pop songs, they do dabble on the occasional rock song. Bill and Ted met up with them and showed them just how powerful rock music can be with the right skills. The two friends don't mind at the cover songs as they see it as an appreciation for the classics.
  • When the club surpassed Elvis Presley for the most number of songs that reach the Billboard top 100 list, the God of Rock and Roll Stars was graceful upon defeat. Will repaid the favor by doing a cover version of A Little Less Conversation the next year.
  • Once a Spanish teacher of the class, Will Schuester had the job at Glee Club forced upon him. Though he had a rocky start, he managed to find enough talent to make his school competitive. In the end, his efforts were even enough to win Nationals in at least two occasions.
  • He may be a Nice Guy, but he is also driven to push his students to the top to the point of sometimes ignoring their personal feelings. Whenever that is brought up, Will admits he shares a lot of traits with the jock Finn under pressure. He strives to find the right balance to help the New Directions.
  • Yes, Will admits he doesn't know a lick of Spanish. The only reason he taught that class was because it was the only available job at the time. Thankfully, he managed to get a job at history and was much more attuned to that job.
  • If the group were to pick who is their best singer, chances are they will choose Rachel for that spot. She has the most experience in song and she's not afraid to state that fact. Her ambitiousness was grating at times to the rest of the cast, but over time she has learned to be a team player for the group.
  • Many have speculated that she had b een modeled by Friends member Rachel Green. The often self-absorbed woman believes that and was glad that people have begun to model others after her. Regardless, the two get along with each other mainly by talking about grievances with each others' friends.
  • Is proud the proclaim that she was given the most number of solo songs in the show as well as the only one to have a duet with every original member of the New Directions.
  • Finn's ascension was by far the most memorable for the other cast members. He died along with his avatar, his absence felt throughout the school. Even the auditorium was named after him. It was safe to say that his return was met with much rejoicing.
  • Finn didn't even mean to join up in the first place. He was content being the star quarterback for his football team. It was only when Will stumbled upon him belting a song while in the shower that he was offered the job. Despite the scorn he received when he joined Glee Club, Finn proved to be an invaluable member of the team.
  • Despite being an original member of the team, he had always feared that hi efforts were never enough. Even when he bullied people, he let them bully him back to push himself away from people. It didn't help that he later lost his father and that Rachel broke up with him before they married. He hopes that his tenure in the Pantheon will wash away those doubts.
  • The first member to ascend, he is seen as a fan favorite amongst fans. Despite being Camp Gay, he can be ruthless in getting his way, even at the expense of his friends. Regardless, he has always been supportive of his competition and his teammates and is a Graceful Loser where it counts.
  • His first relationship with Will led to some issues, mainly some people did not like that Will ended up kissing Kurt despite being bullied by the teen. Kurt's relationship with the unascended Blaine was more highly received and the two have been considered icons for normalizing gay relationships.
  • Has long been considered for the role of Sassy Black Woman as she is one of the most well-known examples of the modern era. Mercedes has taken those criticisms with pride, noting that she's never afraid to state her piece of mind, especially when her friends go out of line.
  • That was especially true with Rachel. The two headstrong women made it a sort of competition to see who was the best singer. That mellowed out when the two realized how much they kept the other in check of their worst vices.
  • Has been Kurt's best friend for as long as she remembers. She admits she initially had feelings towards the gay teen, but has since come to terms with the fact that she can't be with him.
  • Artie comes from a long line of Disabled Snarkers, disabled people who aren't above joking about their immobile limbs to make others uncomfortable. Unfortunately, it didn't save him from being subjected to bullying. Still, no one can say he isn't a great singer.
  • Artie initially took up the challenge on a dare from Tina. The two have been close ever since. It has been heavily hinted that the two hooked up in the series finale and it was confirmed when they kissed each other.
  • Was a former follower of Lydia Deetz, playing up the roll as the goth girl. Yet she found out that she merely liked wearing 60s and Victorian style clothing instead. She still keeps tabs with the God of Goths as friends.
  • Joins a growing list of cheerleader deities. Quinn herself boasts a 4.0 GPA... and she's not afraid to flaunt that fact. She will likely have a say for choosing the next God of Cheerleaders.
  • In the beginning, she was hired by eternal antagonist Sue Sylvester in order to spy on New Directions. Yet after spending some time with them, she grew to like her. Namely, they were one of the few people in high school who didn't ostracize her for her pregnancy at the time.
  • The vintage Spicy Latina of the group, to the point that some thought she would hold the title herself. Santana eventually passed on the opportunity, stating she would rather compete with Rachel for best singer in the group.
  • Of course there is one big reason for deciding to join the Pantheon as a group. With bringing the original cast, she brought along her girlfriend Brittany. Long thought incapable of committing in a serious relationship, she revealed her feelings for the Dumb Blonde in spectacular fashion. After a lot of sorting things out, the two finally got married
  • Puck's initial entry came as a surprise for the other members of the group. He started off by berating their group and hooking up with other women, even being the child of Quinn's baby. Yet he has proven to be a prolific singer himself and he eventually swallowed his pride enough to join the group.
  • At a time when Dumb Blondes were a dying breed in the multiverse, Brittany brought it back in style. Despite her lack of intelligence, she is one of the best dancers of the group and often incorporates it into her singing.
  • Brittany has also proven to be one of the more well-adjusted person of the group when it comes to relationships. She may have a wide list of lovers, but has managed to avoid drama throughout. The one issue she has was when dealing with Santana's declaration of love. She eventually reciprocated those feelings, and the two have been together ever since.
  • Is one of the few Lovable Jocks of the entire school. A member of the football team and a prolific dancer, he was one of the most popular students in school.
  • As evidence of his stability, his relationships with both Matt and Tina can be said to be one of the most stable in the entire show, with the former former nearing Those Two Guys status and the later seen as the Beta Couple of he group... at least until he left the school. Even then, he wished her and Artie the best when the two ended up together.
  • Not much is known about Matt as he left the group sooner than anyone else in New Directions. What was picked up about him is that he was part of the football team and was best friends with Mike.

    The Pied Piper of Hamelin

  • Once upon a time, the small German town of Hamelin was suffering from a rat infestation. Suddenly, a mysterious man wearing colorful clothing appeared and claimed to be able to solve Hamelin's rat problem. The mayor of the town promised to pay him in return, and so the Piper played his flute, leading the rats to drown in the nearby river. However, the town refused to give him his pay, and even blamed him for the rat problem. Enraged, he vowed revenge on the town and left. On Saint John and Paul's day, he played his music and lured the towns children out while the adults were praying in church. The fate of the children is much disputed, but the adults were incredibly distraught over the disappearance of their children.
  • It was a sunny day in the Pantheon when trouble arose; an infestation of rats in the House of Food, eating the food supplies in the kitchens. The deities of the house were requesting help from any rat exterminators when a man wearing bright clothes approached the house, willing to remove the rats from the house for a decent sum of money. Recognizing who he is, the deities accepted his help and promised him that he'll be payed for his work. With the toot of his flute, the Piper lured the rats away from the house with his song. When he returned to receive his pay, the house held up their side of the bargain and gave him the money he was promised. The Court of the Gods recognized his legendary status and usefulness and ascended him with a proper title within the Pantheon.
  • The Pied Piper is an enigmatic one. He doesn't hang out with the other deities and prefers to keep to himself, only when he's doing his job as a pest exterminator is he seen interacting with others. He is also rather secretive, refusing to tell exactly where he took the children of Hamelin. Because of this, many deities feel a bit unnerved by him, and generally don't interact with him, not that he minds.
  • There are two houses that the Piper has been banned from; Rabbits & Rodents and Children. With the former, the residents of the house detest and/or fear him because he could easily control them with his music and his job as a pest exterminator involves getting rid of creatures like them. With the latter, the members of the house of Family were spooked out when they found out what he did to Hamelin's children, and decided to take no chances in deciding to ban him, even if he only did it to punish the townspeople.
  • Some deities have compared him to Peter Pan, as both of them led children away to someplace unknown without their parents. Peter Pan is rather unnerved by the Pied Piper, as some tales say that he brought the children to a better place, but other tales say he drowned the children in a body of water, and the Pied Piper's refusal to tell anyone exactly what happened just makes Peter Pan more avoidant of him.
  • Two children who happen to really dislike him are Hansel and Gretel. Given their experience in getting lost and nearly getting cooked by an evil witch, they assumed the worst when they heard of the Piper luring children away from Hamelin. The Piper doesn't pay much attention to them, but doesn't really bother to argue agains them, so the two children avoid him whenever they can.
  • As noted, he lured out Hamelin's children as punishment for the townspeople's refusal to pay him reward money after doing his job. This scenario is similar to what La Squadra Esecuzioni members Risotto Nero, Pesci, and Ghiaccio went through, as their boss, Diavolo frequently refuses to pay them enough money and giving them land like he does with his gambling and narcotics team, which ends up being one of the reasons why they ended up clashing against Team Bucciarati. The Pied Piper is a bit disappointed that even more people keep not earning expected rewards like he did, but other than that doesn't interact with them much, knowing their jobs as assassins and Giacchio's short fuse would make a very risky meeting.
  • Because of the popularity of his legend, several gods once tried to imitate his "play the flute to get rid of mice" routine, to varying degrees of success. Sylvester the Cat once tried to imitate him to get rid of some mice, but was thwarted by Speedy Gonzales. Tom Cat also imitated his technique in another attempt to get rid of Jerry, but just couldn't outwit the mouse as usual. Porky Pig once took up a job similar to the Pied Piper and did actually get his reward money, but had to fight a giant cat disguised as a giant rat first. The Pink Panther's first attempt at being a Pied Piper went a bit awry when the mice went back to the village, resulting in a series of events that ended with the Panther and the mice scaring some elephants away. Pinkie Pie managed to successfully lure the hungry Parasprites away from Ponyville by playing multiple musical instruments. The Piper is rather amused by his fame, but doesn't interact with them much.
  • In Shrek's world, there happens to be two Pied Pipers; one lives in the original timeline, wearing white. The other one wears black, lives in the alternate timeline, and works for Rumpelstiltskin. His Magic Music allows him to control any living being and objects under its thrall, and is appropriatelly feared by the heroes and even Rumpelstiltskin. Because of their unfortunate experiences with him, Shrek, Donkey, and Fiona were apprehensive at the Piper's presence. While they eventually realized he wasn't the Pipers they knew, they're still incredibly uncomfortable with him, not wanting to get on his bad side.
  • As it turns out, another piper was present in the Pantheon before the Pied Piper; Scaramouche, the Pied-Piper of Ruination, whose flute can create golems, scatting that can invoke telekinesis, and an explosive tuning-fork dagger. The Pied Piper isn't really interested in meeting him for certain reasons, like them being of different professions.
  • Apparently, in the Whoniverse the Pied Piper is an Eldritch Abomination also known as Elijah Spellman, who wanted to hunt down more children and terrorized Sarah Jane Smith, made especially harrowing because of her fear of clowns. While this Pied Piper isn't the same one Sarah knew, she still dislikes him and would rather aavoid him whenever she can.
  • As it turns out, there is a girl that shares her name with the town of Hamelin; Hamelin of the Blood Team. When they ascended, she was one of the few members who didn't have their inspiration or fairy-tale counterpart ascend before them, so when she heard of the Pied Piper's ascension, she rushed over to meet him in person. She then became one of the Pied Piper's only friends in the Pantheon, as he tolerates the girl's quirky attitude and Hamelin's just happy to meet the original Pied Piper.
  • While the Pied Piper has somewhat of a bad reputation for what he did to Hamelin's children, he refuses to be associated with people who are willing to harm children like Pennywise, Scott Shelby, Ryuunosuke Uryuu and Caster, the Slender Man, Springtrap, and the 456 Ambassador. He will insist that he only did it as payback for the ungrateful townspeople not paying him in money for doing his job, instead of cruelty or some other nebulous goal.

    Weezer 
Weezer, Gods of Self-Titled Albums
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/weez2015_4.png
The group in 2015. From L-R, Scott Shriner, Brian Bell, Rivers Cuomo & Patrick Wilson
  • Weezer is a Los Angeles-based Alternative Rock/Power Pop band led by singer/guitarist/songwriter Rivers Cuomo. They became a household name with the release of their self-titled debut album (known to many fans as The Blue Album), standing out with their poppy, mostly upbeat style during the gloomy, grunge era of alt-rock. Since their breakthrough, they've released 12 albums, six of which don't have a title. While they haven't had the most consistency in quality (though, don't try to ask fans specifically when they declined), they have still prospered (and won back most of their fanbase) after many years.
  • One day while the band was touring, Rivers somehow found a doorway that led to "a strange, yet interesting place", in his words. After looking around for a place to stay, he found a house centered around something very familiar to him, the House of Music. The house itself was vacant to more bands, so after a hearing from the Court of the Gods and some convincing from Rivers, the entire band got their own temple. Though, one of the band members did have one question to the judge.
    Patrick Wilson: "I do have to ask, before I sign this contract, is their a way to quickly get out of this place and vice-versa? We're still touring, you know."
    The Judge: "There is, but..."
    [One four-hour, overly detailed explaination later]
    Patrick: "Eh, worth it."
  • Upon entering the Pantheon, the band were gleeful to meet some of the iconic bands and artists they took inspiration from or payed tribute to that have resided in the place. The Beatles were impressed by their Power Pop style, (though, they thought their truely great material came from their first two albums) Freddie Mercury was pleased to see the band took a few notes from Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" for their Epic Rocking, grandiose "The Greatest Man That Ever Lived (Variations on a Shaker Hymn)", and Michael Jackson approved of their take on one of his most famous songs, "Billie Jean".
    • When the band went to go see Metallica, Rivers was a little worried, as he'd accidentally near-ripped-off "Sanitarium" for Weezer's breakthrough single, "Undone - The Sweater Song", and felt they wouldn't care for his practical-plagiarism, considering their views towards stealing their content. Fortunately, Metallica was surprising okay with it, and were just glad that they've inspired a band who gained millions of fans.
  • After they settled in their new home, Weezer decided to tour across the Pantheon and set up a few dates. While on the stage, they were rather surprised to see the large amount of fans that came by to see them perform; the crowds weren't as massive compared to some of the other ascended band's shows, but nevertheless, they were filled with joy.
  • The band (well, mostly Rivers) has wrote all kinds of songs, but the type they're perhaps most familiar with are about love (or lost love) and relationships, whether it be about a guy expressing his love to a girl by comparing them to pop culture figures, a man clinging for his girlfriend not to leave him, or about Rivers' experience at college crushing on a girl, only to realize she's a lesbian. They have held a few concerts at the House of Love, though the guardians over there keep them from playing a couple of their creepier songs (I.e. "El Scorcho", "I'm Your Daddy").
  • Probably the most notable thing about Weezer is their status as a clean cut, slightly losery, and kinda geeky band, which is shown in songs like "In The Garage" where Rivers sings about performing in his, well, garage complete with X-Men and Kiss posters hanging on the wall, and "Beverly Hills" which is about being a beatdown guy dreaming about living in the title city. Steve Smith seems to like the band for all of the aforementioned traits, which is pretty fitting considering his status as a virgin.
  • They got along quite nicely with Linkin Park for a very strange and specific reason. Basically, their first two albums are respectively considered alt-rock and nu-metal classics (though, it took a little longer for Pinkerton to get that treatment), but opinions on the rest of their discography vary widely within their fanbases. While Linkin Park feels that fandom criticism towards their later albums went too far, Weezer is a bit more receptive with backlash, hence why they revisited the roots for Everything Will Be Alright in the End after Raditude with it's mainstream pop-orientated sound didn't go over well with fans. They still moderately change their style from time to time, though.
  • One time, a persistent fan wanted Weezer to cover Toto's "Africa". While they initially trolled said fan by covering "Rosanna" instead, the band later relented and recorded their own take on the song. This version surprisingly did so well, that they recorded an entire Cover Album titled The Teal Album. In the Pantheon, Weezer continues this trend by covering some of the ascendent's own songs during their concerts.
  • Like most bands, some of their songs come with music videos, a few of which resulted in good relationships with some of the deities (and even an entire house).
    • In the video for "Buddy Holly", Weezer is shown performing at Arnold's Drive-In from Happy Days, with the Fonz even showing his moves to the song. While Arthur has yet to recall that ever happening in the place, he still finds it cool that they've held a show in his regular hangout.
    • In the "Keep Fishin'" video, the band are playing the song as special guests in The Muppet Show, complete with some of the cast singing and dancing on stage during their performance, though Animal had to fill in for Patrick for most of the song as he was busy being kidnapped by Miss Piggy for, er, her own amusement. Weezer ties with the The Muppets has since then strengthened, as they've made a cover of "Rainbow Connection" with Hayley Williams and performed in a couple of their Pantheonic shows, albeit with both parties putting a restraining order between Patrick and Miss Piggy.
    • For the "Pork and Beans" video, they got a plethora of then-huge YouTube stars and internet memes to be featured with the band. All members in the House of Memes have gushed about the video, with a few of them even calling it "the best YouTube Rewind ever made."
    • The video for their cover of "Africa" was a parody of their video for "Undone - The Sweater Song" with all band members replaced with stand-ins, including "Weird Al" Yankovic playing Rivers. The band got to see the comedic musician hanging out at his temple and this encounter inspired him to record a new song parodying one of their tracks titled "Muddy Collie".
  • Also present in the House of Titles.

  • Do not be fooled by their laidback attitudes; they know about time travel and are not afraid to show what they can do.
  • The two are exceptionally good friends with historical figures since they were all gathered for their history report. They were happy to find Beethoveen already settled in — playing synthesizers, no less — and have helped Joan of Arc create an exercise program.
  • Whenever Halloween comes close, the two head off to prepare for a Halloween Adventure. Their shows are hilarious and the revenue helps prepare a kickstart for an upcoming tour.
  • Ted doesn't understand why the heck Neo sounds oddly familiar. It's probably for the best though (as Neo would like it that the Gods don't make remarks on their voices).
    • Ted was also weirded out by John Wick, though he has since built a hobby out of playing guitar along with Wick's head shooting rampages.
  • The two met up with Paul London and Brian Kendrick, who dressed up as them and called themselves "Brian D. Kendrick and Paul 'Paul' London". The four hit it off pretty well, with Paul and Brian allowed to go on adventures with the two, and Bill and Ted learning to play their entrance theme (which they think is "Excellent!") so they can one day perform at Wrestlemania.

  • Domains: Otters, Music
  • Heralds: Wendell Badger, Harvey Beaver, Charlie Muskrat
  • Allies: Kermit the Frog, Della & Jim Young, Hijiri Mochizuki, Muse
  • Dislikes: Evil musicians
  • Emmet & Ma Otter are a poor mother-son duo scraping by via odd jobs and laundry work respectively from their home. With Christmas around the corner, a talent contest in a town nearby gives them the opportunity to earn 50 dollars. They enter separately; Ma selling Emmet's toolshed to make a costume for herself and hoping to use the prize money to get her son a guitar whilst Emmet drilled a hole in Ma's washtub to make a washtub bass and hoping the get Ma a piano with the prize money. Both of them meet during the contest performing their own songs, but lose in the end. Luckily for them, they get a job as the band for their local inn after playing a combined version of their talent competition songs near the inn.
  • With Christmas coming to the Pantheon, it was also time for the House of Theater to hold a talent competition. The winner of that contest would receive some prize money. A number of contestants joined, with one of them consisting of Emmet & Ma Otter, who performed one of their songs with their jug-band when it was their turn. Although they didn't win the contest, the audience liked their performance enough to have them be a part of the Pantheon.
  • Kermit the Frog has told other deities that particular story during the holiday season. He is more than willing to allow the Otters alongside their bandmates to perform in the House of Theater whenever Christmas comes around, sometimes by themselves and sometimes as part of an act in a larger performance. The Otters' don't actually perform traditional Christmas carols; rather they perform songs of their own making.
  • Hearing a jug-band has been described by others as a nice change of pace from more traditional bands. That said, the Otters are more than aware that there are many other musicians that are far more lavish than them when it comes to their presentation. They were a bit relieved to hear from some that what's more important than a strong visual presentation is the heart that's put forward in performing a song.
    • What the Otters weren't as happy to hear was that there were some musicians with a really bad attitude. The worst that their competition, the Riverbottom Nightmare Gang, could be was just being a bunch of bullies with talent. In the Pantheon, not only do these evil musicians potentially have talent, but they are clearly capable of acting even worse than the Riverbottom Gang. The Otters would prefer to keep their distance from these villainous performers.
  • The sight of otters and other small animals playing music was considered adorable according to Rena Ryuugu, Sapphire Rhodonite, and even Schezo Wegey. Even if the otters know that they aren't mostly bad people by any means, the idea of being taken by them because of perceived cuteness didn't sit well for the jug-band.
  • Emmet's deceased father has been described as a Snake Oil Salesman...in the sense that he was a salesman that sells oil for snakes. As far as anyone in the Pantheon is concerned, no one wants to oil any of the ascended snakes around there, even if oil for snakes was available.
  • Ma & Emmet weren't the only ones who participated in a talent competition in order to get something important. They learned how a Girl Group known as Muse took part in a singing competition to save their school. Like the otters, something happened that prevented the protagonists from winning the competition (Muse having to drop out of the show due to Honoka's illness at the time in that case), though things were ultimately able to work out after the contest (the girls were able to save their school). Both otters and girls have shown goodwill towards each other and have sometimes performed separate acts during Christmas concerts.
  • Hijiri Mochizuki was eager to meet up with additional carolers, but didn't expect them to be a group of small animals that are also a jug-band. She doesn't mind it at all and has even joined them in their carolling. There's also the fact that they are more active in making music during the holiday season.
  • Their tale can be seen as something of a variant of Della & Jim Young's story, but instead of selling their prized possessions to get the other something meaningful, Emmet & Ma otter had to sacrifice something important related to the other as a stepping stone to get something for the other, but failed to get the money to do so during that crucial moment. That didn't stop the Youngs from liking the Otters for thinking about each other in the long run regardless.
  • It took a while for some deities to realize that one of the Otters' songs, When the River Meets the Sea, was symbolic of death and about a peaceful transition to the afterlife. Regardless of how death works in the Pantheon, some of the friendlier entities related to the afterlife have taken a liking to the song.

  • One upside in being in the Pantheon is the fact that you don't have to worry about the being that killed you if they had not ascended yet. Marion had the same privileges for much of her own ascension. That all changed when Aerith dropped by to her temple... only to find out she was brutally murdered. In a shower no less. After being revived, Marion confirmed her worst fears; Norman Bates has returned. Sure enough, the man was discovered shortly afterwards in the House of Music. He denied the murder deftly, but there was little down on the mind of many. The Pantheon has one more killer on the loose.
    • There has been additional footage found that recorded his life as a teenager. This has only made the character even more sympathetic as it showed Norman did try to solve his insanity... only to succumb to it in the final years.
  • Given his title, whenever Norman is killing someone high-pitched violins are heard nearby from some unknown source, warning whoever isn't cowering from all the Scare Chords that a murder is occurring.
  • For Freud, Norman's ascension was one of the happiest days of his life. If there's anyone who could prove that previous experiences with one's parents can shape their lives, its Norman Bates. Freud was quick to shove out any competition to examine the man for himself. Though it did give him some publicity, Freud also hopes to find a way to cure him of the madness. He may have after all by the end of the films.
  • Of course there are just some people he couldn't push away. The silver tongue of Hannibal Lecture was just to dangerous for Freud to ever compete with, giving the cannibal some time between the two. Unlike Freud, Hannibal has no interest of curing the man. Instead, he hope to manipulate Bates' psychotic tendencies to his benefit. It would certainly help to have someone who could shank some of his enemies without warning.
  • His ascension has put Dexter Morgan in a dilemma. He doesn't trust Norman's attempts of redemption even though he himself is hoping to do the same. So for now, Dexter decided to give Norman a chat as well as an ultimatum; be careful what he does, because Dexter may just put him on his hit list next.
  • Eddie Low on the other hand is more sympathetic, especially when he looks towards the film version. It is part of an attempt to befriend Norman. Still, a few GTA deities belief he is only doing this in order to amass allies to get his revenge on Niko.
  • As expected from such a prolific killer, he has his share of fans, even he doesn't like the fact that he's inspired an entire army of killers. In fact, one of his more direct inspirations was already in the Pantheon to meet up with him. American Psycho Patrick Bateman took Norman to his room. Instead of indulging in murder, Batman handed a wine bottle as a celebration. He also gave Bates some advice: embrace who you are and don't give a damn about those who criticize you. Norman Bates left the apartment perturbed by the advice.
  • Most detectives have kept an arms length from Norman Bates. Not Shawn Spencer. The detective couldn't wait to interview one of the most well-known Slasher Movie killers on the big screen. To Norman, it was intimidating having someone ask so many intrusive questions. Luckily, Gus was there to talk him out of it. After all, there is always the chance that his Split Personality makes him more murderous.
  • As so many other Slasher Movie killers were inspired by him, there's no surprise that many of them keep an eye on him. One such encounter had him taking a walk at night. Suddenly, a man with a white mask turned him around from behind and pushed him down. Fearing for his life, Norman tried to crawl away but the assailant grabbed hold of a leg and dragged him closer. The assailant was no other than Michael Myers. The two stared at each other for a tense few seconds. When Norman looked away for a brief moment, Myers had disappeared. He believed that Myers wanted take a look at his genre ancestor.
  • There has been competing claims as to his fate. The books claim that he had completely given into his insanity up to his death. The films showed a more optimistic story. Norman tried his best to live a normal life, even though his Split Personality reared its ugly head from time to time. But in the end, he confronted his fears by destroy the same house that was the source of all his pain. With the last vestige of his past life destroyed, Norman Bates managed to live a normal life with a family of his own.
    • Luke and Shido are both keeping a close watch on him in the hope that Norman can find redemption.
  • Ever since a fateful encounter with Charlie Bucket, Norman felt some sort of connection and has since always always stocked his temple with Wonka candy. Charlie, on the other hand, has avoided Norman like hell.
  • In one of his murder attempts, he accidentally came across Erma Williams taking a bath. Fortunately, all that happened was him apologizing for having entered the wrong bathroom.
