  • In Superman's Rogues Gallery, you will never find someone with the phenomenal cosmic powers tied with a sense of whimsy and playfulness as you will with Mister Mxyzptlk. A jester and magical imp from the Fifth Dimension on the planet Zrfff, he's typicall just jester, a comedian and everyman on his home turf.. But due to the 5th dimension's higher nature, he comes off as a god-like Reality Warper in the third dimension. Rather than anything outright evil like most of Superman's villains, he's content with pranking and messing with the Man of Steel. He can make the universe his clay but prefers to match wits with him by causing (relatively) harmless chaos. For a win condition, you have to get him him to say, spell, write, or otherwise communicate his own name backwards. So have him say "Ktlpzyxm" and he'll be gone for 90 days. He does have a sense of honor and respect behind his clownish behavior, making him more of a Friendly Enemy.
  • Mr Mxyzptlk is relatively unique in that he isn't a specific version that ascended to the Trope Pantheon; all versions of the imp, unless specifically stated otherwise, are the same guy. His pestering of the Man of Steel spans the multiverse. Surprisingly, one mortal did the math and found this actually holds up. And because he can break the fourth wall with ease, he knows what the Trope Pantheon is. He came on his own accord to meet up and mess around with others, and there's no way he's gonna let Superman be where without him. Though Superman finds him annoying, they don't have much in the way of hard feelings and Mxy considers him his worthiest adversary. Second worthiest is Supergirl, who was a victim of his pranks during her early career. Some things he did include temporarily amping power levels up and removed her weakness to Kryptonite to humiliate Superman, depowered her, repowered her, lured her into a future century where everyone had been brainwashed into hating her, tried to get married to her (don't ask), banished her and Batgirl to other dimension and pretended to be her enemy Black Flame pretending be Supergirl as a part of a convoluted scheme to prank Superman and Batman (again, don't ask).
    • His relationship with Superman got a little strained when he was tricked by the mysterious Mr. Oz into being captured along with countless other heroes and villains. He figured Superman would rescue him once he stopped his regular visits, but when that didn't happen, he made his own escape and decided to steal Superman's son as his new best friend. To challenge Mxy's attempts, Superman challenged him to a game, where the winner gets to keep John. It was a back and forth contest where Mxy almost won several times, but ultimately the love of the Superfamily managed to merge his 2 halves back together and reclaim John. Mxy, as part of the game, agreed to go "far away" for a while, but he's fairly certain that Batmite and Gsptlsnz can keep him amused for now. And besides, he'd always be game for another game eventually.
  • Where exactly Mr Mxyzptlk stands in the Fifth Dimension is often Depending on the Writer. In his original appearance, he was basically a nobody on Zrfff. Back in the Golden Age of Comics, his name was Mr Mxyztplk. He's got a bombshell of a wife in Ms Gsptlsnz, though as they're both higher dimensional shapeshifters they could just prefer those appearances. On that note, he thinks Roger and Jessica Rabbit are a cute couple. Originally it was suggested the Golden and Silver Age Mxy were counterparts though with the "all Mxys are the same guy" reveal it's possible this could be just "fifth-dimensional weirdness"...or maybe it's as simple as them being Mxy from different points in his timeline. Supes once managed to get to the Fifth Dimension and cause trouble for him on his home turf. He let Luthor use red kryptonite so long as he didn't reveal his involvement. It's also not clear how he would stand compared to the Daedric Princes in a no hold bars fight. The only one Mxy seems to care about is Sheogoroth, due to his precedent for tricking mortals and not even his fellow Daedric Princes were spared from being made a fool of. Oftentimes he can just do nothing, which you can learn about in a book series called the 16 Accords of Madness.
  • Earlier in his timeline he used to be a serious minded researcher, but in order to complete a Stable Time Loop Young Justice they inspired within him a sense of humor via a Three Stooges bit. He was happy to meet them in the Trope Pantheon and thank them for the laughs. He's been experimenting with his look recently by looking like a Supreme Kai. The impish Glossyark attempted to mess with Mxyzptlk's timeline by getting two "temporally distinct" iterations to show up and cause chaos as he was feeling particularly impish. Present Mxyzptlk wasn't factored in and he ended up throwing a pie at Glossyark, before admitting what he was doing was Actually Pretty Funny. He likes to play games with him, with one being a gamble to be able to mess with Superman in his place. Glossyark always loses this because Mxyzptlk cheats by getting his even further future self's advice, but the former isn't away of that. The further future Mxyzptlk mentions he has something big in plan involving making Rick works with other Ricks and the Doctor work with their various incarnations, but he won't spoil what that entails.
  • There are a few Mxys that are clearly not the same guy, but they're the exception rather than the rule and the main Mxyzptlk is well aware of their antics. Chiefly his Antimatter Universe counterpart Mixyezpitellik, a serious-minded and neatly dressed Reality Warper. He hates being compared to Mxyzptlk, calling him a "madcap imp". There's also a Bizarro Mxyzptlk made as a result of a Bizarro duplication ray, who's interested in creating order and usually pretty dour. Mxyzptlk jokes that they're somehow the same guy as only a Bizarro of him could be so humorless. Mr Mxyzptlk claims that Loki, Anansui and the Coyote are in fact just him under an alias but since he's from the DC Universe this is suspect. For what it's worth he gets along with Loki, seeing him as a kindred spirit if significantly more ambitious than him. The god of mischief decided to prank Thor by having Mxy disguise himself as Loki and the real Loki trying to "clear his name", keeping the act up until he gets bored and betrays him by working with his "imposter".
  • Well aware of Marvel Comics, when he showed up Post-Crisis he initially went under the alias "Ben deRoy as a nod to the Beyonder. When the Beyonder ascended the two formally met (or more accurately the Beyonder met Mxy) and became friends since they enjoy playing with their phenomenal cosmic power. And yes, this is reference to the Genie. In the DC Universe, genies are often Fifth Dimensional imps, and his ilk have inspired other whimsical beings like leprechauns. He and the Genie enjoy stand up, however the Genie thinks Mxy can be a real jerk and while Mxyzptlk usually reverses the damage he does, he has killed. Still, he got a good chuckle over Mxyzptlk disguising himself as Iago and messing with Jafar by tempting him with great power only to put him in the Thousand And One Nights book and figure out how to get out. Afterwards he went after Hoopa and tried to test himself by summoning a bunch of legendaries and see if Hoopa Unbound can send them back with his rings. He's come to like the little scamp and decided to make another Pokemon his partner, that being the tricky and goofy Blacephalon.
  • His true form is incomprehensible to third dimensional beings; being an imp is simply his preferred form to interact with them and not expose the Eldritch Abomination he really is. His true, secret imp name is unpronounceable...though the Joker would argue otherwise. Much like Rumpelstiltskin, knowing his true name gives you some power over him. The possible fae tried to get him in a deal spelling out his true name, but Mxy laughed saying "buddy, I like your trick but I don't need your name to make you do what I want. Don't worry though, it's not my style. Your little trick with Shrek, tricking him into It's a Wonderful Plot just by taking a day? Pretty clever trick". Said ogre would rather just ignore the imp, due to bad memories. This unpronounceable status is different to HIM, who's name isn't spoken more out of dread...or to get past the censors. HIM and Mr Mxyzptlk get along surprisingly well considering HIM is blatantly evil, as the demon loves to mess with the Powerpuff Girls in mind games and bending reality while only getting broken teeth at the worst. Unlike some other demons HIM is happy to just Poke the Poodle when he wants to subvert expectations, like pulling a bunch of mind games to make the Professor pay...for his flapjacks. He thinks a lot of what Mxy does to the Man of Steel is pretty funny. The two have made an agreement never to interfere with each other's turf if they're going to get along, something the imp can easily enforce.
  • Said Powerpuff Girls deeply mistrust Mxyzptlk, having pointed out that sometimes he forges the "nuisance" part and becomes more of an outright villain. Their "Exhibit A" was My Adventures with Superman, where he made a new design based off a Supreme Kai, messing with Clark and Lois' relationship and trying to live up to the status of a chaos god. Mxy noted their "looks like a Supreme Kai" comment and decided to use that for some pranks; he pretended to be a Kaioshin there to help Goku with training. He offered "spiritual training", giving him a glowing black rock...akin to Black Kryptonite. The result was Goku undergoing a Literal Split Personality, one half an Unskilled, but Strong Blood Knight called Kakarot and the other a Weak, but Skilled humbler Goku that didn't like each other, being "his Saiyan and Earthling halves". The two ended up fighting until the Goku half tricked the Kakarot into "doing a little dance to show he's not just a brutish jerk"...and he did the same dance, aka a Fusion Dance. This returned him to normal and impressed the imp, saying he'll figure out something smarter. Enraged by this, Beerus confronted Mxy and said that if he tries this stunt again he might destroy him. The imp said "go on, bring it!". Beerus used Hakai...only for the purple energy to do nothing but light his cigar. Learning he got along with and was more powerful than Zen'o shut Beerus right up. The ascended Kaioshins have decided not to mess with him for now.
  • All being said, his alias hardly pronounceable due to its complete lack of vowels, and usage of rare consonants. All his kind have the lack of vowels in their name. How do you even pronounce it varies; "Mix-pih-tulk", "Mix-yez-pitl-ick", "Mix-el-plik", they're all valid. Him having to say his name backwards might be a blessing in disguise. Rumpelstiltskin considered making another trick of getting Mxyzptlk to make him say his own name backwards or else he'll keep interfering with his mischief. Mxy accepted the deal, only to end up getting frustrated waiting for the other guy to say "Nikstlitslepmur" and accidentally saying his own name backwards in an angry rantnote . Ryuk used his Shinigami eyes to figure out his true name only to get "Mxyzptlk" in English instead..."nice try" said the imp. There wasn't any hard feelings as he likes the cut of the Shinigami's jib, being someone who's more proactive and interested in stirring the pot to see what happens. Mxy won't admit that him giving a mortal great power was done smarter than when he did it. Speaking of which...
  • Famously, the Joker once scammed him of the majority of his power by exploiting his true imp name. Mxyzptlk only wanted to give him 1% of the power as he was curious to see what he'd do with that power, but he ended up taking 99.9% instead. Becoming Emperor Joker the universe bent to his insane vision and reality started tearing apart at the seams, requiring Mr Mxyzptlk to work with Superman to find a way to beat the Clown Prince of Crime. It's very much an Old Shame and by his own admission, a bone-headed move. Because of this he's made sure never to let himself be in that position again, staying clear of Dr Doom has he has a...reputation for taking god-like power for himself. He has no interest in giving anyone a drop of his power after that, so he stays clear of Moro and Lord Tirek as they can't be trusted with even a zillionth of his power. Much as it left him with egg on his face, Mxy was still interested in other cases of someone handling god-like power. He thinks Bruce Nolan being God for a Day was amusing, giving him props for yanking too hard on reality.
  • Doom speculated he might actually be the Impossible Man for a bit, but the two ended up meeting and not getting along as the Impossible Man thought his pranks went a bit too far. He was outraged that not only did Mxy not care about innocent lives being endangered, but he lied to him. For context, this was a crossover between the Man of Steel and the Silver Surfer, where they joined powers to both make the crossover and prank the two heroes. The latter wasn't enthused about meeting him again given his more cavalier attitude towards danger. That's why the Collector is mistrustful of him, however the imp still has a soft spot for the kid and they like to compete at planetary billiardsnote . That said, Mxy does have standards and a sense of honor. He's not like Bill Cipher who's idea of a good party is causing mass chaos and devastation, and he's not a Sadist like Yuuki Terumi. That said, he does enjoy playing games with Bill, but it's more about showing that triangle up. They regularly play reality-bending games in the Nightmare Realm, specifically there because Mxyzptlk feels Cipher needs to be on a leash until he learns how to play nicer, often with him making fun of Cipher for using his hedonism in part to cover up the fact he misses the home he burned down. Him wanting to prove he's a better mischief maker is meant to distract the villain.
  • Got a bit bored of playing poker with Bill in the Nightmare Realm and he manifested into somewhere a bit more colorful...Equestia...which history has shown is a bad idea. Discord immediately confronted Mxy given his fight trying to fight off the menace of Bill, who responded with "just ask Ktlpzyxm over there". The imp's response was "that's Ktlpzy-...oh you scummy Dorito chip!" and turned Bill into a Dorito before kicking him out. Mxzyptlk apologized for that, since he's a fan of Discord and enjoys messing around with reality, but not too much. The Mane 6 were curious, if a bit concerned over someone "who's been playing Discord's game before De Lancie was a glimmer in his daddy's eye!...oh yeah, I should probably mention I can see the bronies too." While his specialty is messing with Superman, he's decided to mess with Pinkie Pie by summoning her and Deadpool into a World of Chaos and see if they can figure their way out together. He wanted to be sporting and ran a deli for them when they get hungry, but he got tricked into saying his name backwards when asking to be paid for the chimichanga and ice cream. 90 days later, he wanted a redo and they were happy to do so.
  • The Fifth Dimension is described as being "imagination". It is one ontological layer below the Sixth Dimension, the "multiversal control room" which Perpetua and her relatives come from. The planet he's from, Zrfff, is the home of imps, genies and similar beings, who's magic is advanced 5-D science. Visitors have described Zrfff as being a wacky and chaotic place, something close to a Looney Tunes sketch. To some degree, you could say that Mr Mxyzptlk is like a trickster who uses Toon Physics. Mxy corrected this by saying "my powers aren't toonforce, I simply present it like that!" Judge Doom still despises Mxyzptlk for how close in temperament and to a degree powers he resembles a toon, even if he's a toon underneath that human suit. Emperor Belos holds Mxy in contempt as someone that resembles, seeking his power for himself to purge the world of "sinful" races. Not wanting to take any chances, he turned him into an action figure and played with him as the Collector played with an "action figure" of Zamasu. The mad Kaioshin made the mistake of trying to attack Mxy because he saw him as an irresponsible god at best, god-complexed juiced up mortal at worst. Said action figure doesn't have a voice box because the imp didn't want the "action figure" to say slurs in front of the kid.
  • Mr Mxyzptlk is a big fan of the Looney Tunes. The imp waxed on a (possibly untrue) story that before the Man of Steel he was in a prank war with Bugs Bunny and lost, but liked the moxie and decided to improve his craft. The story may be made up, but the point is that the two got along long enough for Mxy to ask him for a favor and go humiliate the Joker as payback for the time he stole his power. The Joker thought he could get one up on Bugs by making him say " Ynnub Sgub" but as Bugs was using Toon Physics alone, no dice. The whole thing was recorded by Future Zeno who figured out how to use a camera, in order to show off to Present Zeno. Mxyzptlk likes those kids, musing "sentimentality isn't my style but hey, I'm a dad myself". Mxy's fondness for the Zeno duo might be because of sadness over how his son (sort of, it's complicated) Vyndktvx turned out. He tried killing him only to take out the Thing-King (actually a future Mxyzptlk) he systematically destroyed all of the planets inside his pocket dimension to spite his enemy, and inflicting a massive amount of misery towards Superman for burning Vyndktvx's arm during one of his attacks on Earth. He'll entertain him in exchange for getting to mess with Goku. So long as he comes back in one piece and he gets to watch, Zeno will allow it.
  • Mr Mxyzptlk is absurdly powerful by simple virtue of being from a fifth-dimensional Wackyland, but just how absurdly powerful depends. Sometimes the way to banish him is a self-imposed limitation, sometimes it's a hard rule. He's a self-admitted sucker for games, not necessarily that he is bound to their rules as the Celestial Toymaker is that he really likes them. Not coincidentally, the Toymaker happens to be a good friend of his. The two are reality warpers who occupy themselves and their immortality with games. The Toymaker uses more "official" games while Mxyzptlk does mind games and jokes. They each have their personal Worthy Opponent in the Doctor and Superman respectively. They're also significantly more powerful than nearly every other member of said opponent's rogues gallery. The Toymaker's games are considerably more nasty, with the occasional Fate Worse than Death, however like Mr Mxyzptlk he has rules and some sense of fairness he follows. The imp has tried to make it a regular thing every week to meet up with the Toymaker and play games, often requiring the Doctor and Superman to work together in order to mitigate collateral. In Mxy's defense, he'll reverse whatever damage the Toymaker didn't bother to as he's not as bad. Sarda will sometimes be invited for game night.
  • By his own admission there are some beings beyond him, such as Dr Manhattan and, given the aforementioned Sixth Dimension, the Monitor and his relatives in their true form. He doesn't exactly care for Jon Osterman's attitude and has tried to tell him to lighten up, but is otherwise ambivalent towards him. Unfortunately, it also means that as the Darkest Knight, the Batman That Laughs is a threat and one just as comparable to Emperor Joker, if not even worse. He's definitely above Darkseid given he was no match to Emperor Joker, at least regularly as True Form Darkseid is not a form the Lord of Apokolips uses lightly. Beings like Darkseid and YHVH consider him utterly insufferable for not using his powers for anything serious. The Living Tribunal isn't all that impressed by his actions and general irreverence, and Mxyzptlk isn't exactly fond of someone much more powerful than him being, as he sees it, a stick in the mud. Still, he recognizes the Living Tribunal's importance and the two begrudgingly tolerate each other. Also of note; it's ambiguous where SCP-3125, another being from (a different) Fifth Dimension would stand compared to the imp. What is known is that the Escapee finds him obnoxious and insufferable, and Mxy thinks he's no fun.
  • His focus on the DC Universe is usually just Superman and friends. As annoying and chaotic as he is, more than a few times they've had a laugh at what transpired. While he is on speaking terms with Lex Luthor, that's more down to him being ok with helping him once in a blue moon to cause mischief, not because he likes him. Bizarro seems to get along with him a bit more, though that's more down to one incarnation of Bizarro coming to be because of the Joker using the imp's powers and Mxy being nice enough to keep him around when reality went back to normal. Mxy has a Friendly Rivalry with Batman's most powerful fanboy, another 5-D imp called Bat-Mite, who in the (possibly non-canon) "World's Funniest" they ended up rampaging and destroying the multiverse in their little conflict, only to put reality back together good as new like nothing happened. Again, good thing he's only interested in mischief. One of his antics was dunking on the Spectre with planets, something the angel is not impressed by. He's more livid at the time Mxy impersonated him to watch over Regime Superman when he was troubled by Trigon, as no-one messes with his Supes but him! The fact Trigon wasn't squashed like a bug would solidify his Overdeity status in the Trope Pantheon.
  • Once faced an Eldritch Abomination called the Ultimator, who was a 10-dimensional being that almost succeeded at consuming and assimilating the Fifth Dimension into itself. Being completely outclassed, Mxyzptlk had to resort to other comic books to figure out a solution. His solution? Make his own version of Dream of the Endless to bore the Ultimator into a slumber. The actual Dream tolerates this parody, but he didn't think it was all that funny. Since the Fifth Dimension is imagination, one could argue that it falls under the domain of Dream...though there's always the question of "how canon is Vertigo to DC anyway?" He does respect Dream, though he gets along a lot better with Delirium due to sharing that spirit of chaotic whimsy, though even Mxy is cautious not to truly upset her. As the Fifth Dimension is imagination, that puts Mxy in opposition to the Nothing. On a related note, the Auditors despise Mxyzptlk for his boundless whimsy and imagination coupled with the power to make his chaotic whims a reality.
  • As much as he's seen as a Laughably Evil or even Harmless Villain, it's very important to remember the only reason Mr Mxyzptlk is not one of the most dangerous villains in all of DC is because he chooses not to. At heart he's Above Good and Evil and acts out of boredom; he spent the first 2000 years of his life in stasis, the next 2000 doing good deeds and now being a prankster. In one scenario he decided to try being a villain for 2000 years, and afterwards maybe he'll feel guilty about it. It did not end well, with many innocent people and much of Superman's supporting and rogues gallery dying. Xenophanes wants to goad Mr Mxyzptlk into doing that again, but he's given a firm "no" since that ended with Superman killing him, and he's not that bored yet...or maybe that's something that happens at the end of his personal timeline. He finds Lord X to be droll and unimaginative, but this doesn't change the fact that he and Bill Cipher are well aware he absolutely has the potential to be more dangerous than them.

Greater Gods

Beetlejuice, God of Those Who Shall Not Be Named (Betelgeuse, The Ghost with the Most)
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A gravestone that reads “Here lies Betelgeuse”.
  • Theme Song: Beetlejuice Theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Black Comedy, Dirty Old Man, Faux Affably Evil, I Gave My Word, Jerkass, Lack of Empathy, Large Ham, Laughably Evil, Nightmare Face, Psycho for Hire, being summoned by saying his name three times, forcing Lydia to marry him so he can escape to the world of the living
  • Domains: Neitherworld, Nightmares, the Dead
  • Allies: Yuyuko Saigyouji, Spooky, Koume Shirasaka, Erma
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Danny Phantom
  • Enemies: The Ghostbusters, Courage, Dark Danny
  • Opposes: Leto Atreides
  • Opposed By: Casper
  • Annoys: Bruce Wayne/Batman, Jo March
  • Commonality Connection with: Voldemort, Hastur
  • Complicated Relationship with: Lydia Deetz (his would-be bride)
  • Beetlejuice is a freelance poltergeist who specializes in the art of “Bio-exorcism”, the act of scaring living opponents out of their own house. If his employers hire him, he can be instantly summoned by reciting his name three times in a row.
  • Originally, Beetlejuice resided in the House of Ghosts as the God of the Neitherworld. However, it was revealed that the title he held wasn't a proper title. The Court of God threatenened to remove him from the Pantheon unless he got a proper title. Beetlejuice ended up taking the title of God of Those Who Shall Not Be Named.
  • Betelgeuse is actually the true way to spell his name, but after years of being called "Bettle Guys", he settled for "Beetlejuice", because of course, he wants people to say his name.
  • He can be seen hanging out with other ghosts in the Pantheon. Yuyuko Saigyouji and Spooky are among those that he get along with. On the other hand, most good-aligned ghosts like Casper tend to avoid him.
    • He's also impressed with some of Erma's scares/pranks, and can't help but smile in stride at her enjoyment for his rides. Due to this, they help out Jack Skellington from time to time on his yearly Halloween parades.
  • He opposes Leto Atreides. In his words, "Sand Worms. You know I hate 'em."
  • Lydia’s relationship with the ghost is a bit uneasy. Although she once summoned him to save the Maitlands from exorcism, she didn’t forget how he once tried to marry her so he can escape to the world of the living.
  • He couldn’t help but compare himself to Batman given their similarities. The Dark Knight himself wasn’t pleased with this.
  • After finding out about another woman who looks like Lydia, Beetlejuice went to her temple to pay her visit. Needless to say, Jo was annoyed with his antics and has ousted him out of her temple.
  • At one point, he faced off against the Ghostbusters. He possessed them into singing various pop songs until they managed to break free of his control and capture him.
  • Has been a subject of comparison towards Voldemort due to both of them being summoned whenever their names are being called on, especially considering that the latter is also known as “He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named”. People dread the day the two cause havoc at the same time.
    • Others have pointed out that his title is a bit similar to Hastur’s, given that he would often appear whenever his name is summoned out loud.
  • Many have wondered what Beetlejuice’s “scary face” actually looks like given that it was only seen from the back. Needless to say, however, Courage is one of several gods frightened by that face.
  • Koume Shirasaka is one of a few human deities who managed to befriend Beetlejuice. Perhaps because she’s interested in ghost and zombies and she finds him to be cute.
  • Like with most other ghosts, even he has a dislike for Dark Danny. As such, he sometimes teams up with Danny Phantom, though Danny was a bit reluctant to help him.
  • ”It’s showtime!”

Hastur, He Who Must Not Be Named (The Unspeakable One, The King in Yellow, Patron of Decadence, Nihilism and Shepherds, The Feaster From Afar, Deity of Wind, Old Entity Hastorr, Fenric)
  • Greater Deity
  • Symbol: The Yellow Sign
  • Theme Music: The King in Yellow and The Yellow Sign (both composed by Graham Plowman)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Eldritch Abomination Commonly in Human Form, Prefers to Dress in a Yellow Cloak, White Mask of Doom (Actually, that is his face), Deity of Wind, He Who Must Not Be Named Or He Comes, Creator of The King in Yellow
  • Domains: Abominations, Colour, Decadence, Nihilism, Shepherds, Wind
  • Heralds: The Byakhee, The Rapine Storm
  • Superior: H.P. Lovecraft (more like adoptive superior)
  • Allies: Maya Amano
  • Rivals: Cthulhu (his half-brother)
  • Enemies: Azathoth, Yog-Sothoth, Nyarlathotep, Old Man Henderson, ICEY
  • Relatives: Ithaqua (son)
  • Beloved "Son": Hasta
  • It is hard to say how Hastur managed to find his way into the Pantheon. Some say some madman decided to actually read The King in Yellow out loud, thus summoning him. Some say that some madman tried to make the Unspeakable Oath, thus summoning him. And some say that some idiot decided to call out his name out loud, thus summoning him. It is hard to say.
  • For a while, Hastur used to appear whenever his name was spoken out loud. However, over time, some gods started to call out his name just to screw with him, which started to irritate him. Eventually, he decided to say screw it and if someone tries to call out his name, he will send a pack of Byakhee to kill the fool. If they somehow manage to kill them, then, and only then, will he appear to slaughter them.
    • Also, don't try to call him. The pile of dead telemarketers should be enough proof why that's a bad idea.
    • However, he doesn't seem to mind if you try to call him out as a way to screw with someone. When Maya did that to a fortune teller, he actually granted her the ability to use him as a Persona. Even he has a sense of humour.
    • And one last note is that there are some who are safe to say his name when they want and not suffer from it.
  • Old Man Henderson was furious when he heard that Hastur is now in the Pantheon, and this one being the real deal. The reaction is mutual, but Hastur is making sure that Henderson never finds his way to him this time (one reason why he wants to send Byakhee out when his name is called), and if he does find him, he will regret the day when he first saw him.
  • If there are two things what Hastur has any real compassion for, they are shepherds, who he is really friendly to if they worship him and he will protect them with no drawbacks, and the alien boy called Hasta, who he calls his "son". Hasta is... bit mixed on the matter, but he does bring a sort of human side from Hastur, which border to Papa Wolf if he is in danger. Surprisingly, he is rather fine with his attraction forwards Mahiro, though it might be due of sick sense of humour.
    • However, he has made it clear that he does not approve of Luhy's attraction forwards Hasta, and will personally end her if she gets any weird ideas with him. Though if the feelings are mutual, it might be a different tale.
    • Also, assuming he really can be called Hasta's dad, he also runs an intergalactic videogame company called Carcosa Computer Entertainment.
    • However, he is sure to remind people that Annie is not of his heritage, whatever it might be. He has no idea why she has the surname she has.
  • He is a bit disappointed how the only shepherd in the Pantheon is Moses.
  • While there are man ways that Hastur can end your existence, with one of the grosser being sucking your brains out with tentacles, there is one rather cruel way he can end you which he is willing to teach to those who can bear to face him: The "Song of Hastur", a wail what can cause the blood of those who hear it boil, which is not a pleasant experience.
  • He actually decided one day to create a comprehensive version of The King in Yellow book, albeit one what he calls incredibly abridged and saying that the parts that actually do drive people mad or suicidal are the best parts. Still, it hasn't driven anyone mad yet.
  • He is rather irritated that the one they call Yogg-Saron tries to use the same moniker as he. However, he considers Voldemort as an insignificant mage, one not worth his attention.

  • Enemies: YHVH, Athena, Hexxus, rapists, anyone unfortunate enough to piss her off
  • Complicated Relationship with: Cú Chulainn
  • Of the various Celtic deities, one of the most notorious is The Morrigan. A triple goddess, she is mainly associated with war and fate. A shadowy deity who encourages warriors to do brave deeds and able to bring victory against one's opponent, she is also associated with fertility and blood. The Morrigan does this through her wits, and is guaranteed to ruin your life if you truly offend her.
  • Associated with several related beings, such as Nemain (a spirit-women representing the frenzy of war), Macha (a goddess or one of The Fair Folk), and warrior goddess Badb. Some have associated her with Morgan le Fay, but there isn't a connection. King Arthur found this to be a relief. She(at least the ascended version of The Morrigan) isn't connected to the Dagda of the Amala Network either. She's rather stay clear of that multiverse' squabbles, and finds that version of the Dagda weird compared to the one she's familiar with.
  • She was happy to see that Boudica was already in the pantheon, as there aren't many in the pantheon who were Celtic mortals in life. That, and Boudica she has the kind of warrior spirit and vengeance that she respects. Roman deities she cares less for, but that's more of a concern for mortals. She doesn't get why there are two Neros though.
  • Demands to be referred to as The Morrigan, not Morrigan. Yes, it causes some confusion, but not like she cares. It is a way of distinguishing herself from Morrigan Aensland, who the Morrigan seems to be fond of. There's general respect, but the Morrigan's lasciviousness was a trait that got her to like anti-heroic succubi for.
  • Her ascension to the pantheon is not the first time she has met gods from other pantheons. The Battleground of the Gods was primed for her to manipulate. She was put off by Bellona's bloodlust, though people were quick to point her out as being hypocritical as an unashamed manipulator who revels in chaos and war. Asides from that, the Morrigan and Bellona get along just fine because of their similar personalities and fields in their respective mythologies.
  • Capable of crafting pretty nasty fates for those who piss her off. It's thought that she was behind the death of Cu Chulainn for scorning her. You usually have to directly anger her to incur her wrath, and the Morrigan does graciously reward those who pass her tests. This personality might be why she and Beerus have a cordial relationship; they love the fight, can be jerks but have a lot of good attributes, and everyone knows not to mess with them.
  • The Morrigan tends to get along with other war deities, or at least is their rival. Often a mix of both. The big fact exception to this is Athena, who is the goddess of necessary warfare along with knowledge. She doesn't like how the Morrigan uses her wits to cause and fuel wars for as bloody a reason as her brother Ares. Probably why her and Ares get along, though not whenever he's acting like a Dirty Coward.
  • On other war gods, she was attracted to Khorne for being the embodiment of rage, war and bloodshed. He was at first put off by her lustful nature given his contempt for Slaanesh, however the Morrigan, violent as she may be, does have a code, and Khorne does have standards of his own so the lustfulness isn't something he's concerned by. Bandos was too contemptible to even fit into the Friendly Rivalry category, but enough dedicated to the art of war and fighting he managed to be a rival and not straight-up enemy of The Morrigan.
  • While Asura appears neutral on her, The Morrigan does respect him for his fighting prowess, iron will and determination. By contrast, she hates YHVH for His obsession with suppressing and eliminating all other pantheons to assert supremacy and His desire to be the only god. The Morrigan doesn't like rapists either, though pretty much any who'd try to rape her is a Darwin Award winner.
  • As mentioned, she's a fertility goddess. She's the kind of deity who Really Gets Around, having no trouble trading sex for things like glory and prosperity. However she represents a more traditional type of fertility in plants. The phrase "Garden of Morrigan" refers to how battlegrounds tend to be overgrown with plant life due to the fertilizer of human remains and blood left behind. As such, she has a fondness for the House of Plants, and a contempt towards Hexxus due to being a dire threat to greenery.
  • Holds a role in the House of Prophecy because of her important role of foretelling doom. However she's far more seen in the House of Military and Warfare, where she often takes the form of a crow. She seems to be fond of Yousoke Otoha due to his heavy association with crows, along with the actual corvids of the Murkrow flock. Otoha would rather not attract her attention, what with the Morrigan being a dreaded Blood Knight goddess and all.

  • Yo-Kai are mysterious, mischievous creatures that exist beyond the eyesight of regular humans, possessing their environment or other people through inspirits. There are many ways for a Yo-Kai to be born, such as an inanimate object gaining sentience or a living being being reborn as a Yo-Kai shortly after death. One such Yo-Kai, Jibanyan, fits in the latter category. Once a regular housecat, he was reborn after getting run over by a truck, hearing his owner Amy call him lame in his last moments. While carefree and lazy in general, he can get fired up if the situation involves fighting other Yo-Kai or squaring off against oncoming trucks. Being one of the first Yo-Kai Nate Adams met, Jibanyan became a regular companion of his, often having to deal with the chaotic antics of his fellow Yo-Kai when not hanging around the human boy.
  • It was a day like any other; the sky was clear, people were walking down the street, and Jibanyan was standing stalwart on the asphalt road. This time, he'll best that pesky truck for sure! As the wheeled menace rolled onwards, Jibanyan leaped upwards and unleashed his signature Paws of Fury at the vehicle. Alas, the truck won again, slamming onto the Yo-Kai and launching him across the neighbourhood. When Jibanyan came to his senses, he noticed that the street looked... different. There were different buildings and all sorts of weird people and beings that didn't look like any Yo-Kai he knew walking around. Not only that, but some of them were looking at him like they could see him! Somehow, his archnemesis spirited him away into a completely different world... oh well, like that's gonna stop him doing what he does best! He'll get his revenge for sure next time!
  • Curiously, it seems that multiple Yo-Kai have made their home in the Pantheon way before Jibanyan was unceremoniously punted there. Is it just proof of their worldwide reach, or a sign that someone he knows came in before him? It didn't take long for Jibanyan to find the answer; his old pal Nate Adams became a god before him! The undead cat tackled the human boy when he found him, and Nate was surprised to find out that Jibanyan was also granted a divine title. He honestly expected Whisper to get anointed after him, considering that the ghost butler is his constant companion, but he can't complain about his other invisible friend getting in. Since their reunion, Jibanyan likes to crash in and sleep at Nate's temple much more than his own. As much as Nate is annoyed by the cat Yo-Kai's antics, he's still glad that Jibanyan's now around in this other realm.
  • Sometime after they reunited in the Pantheon, Nate decided to introduce Jibanyan to one of his new friends, Ash Ketchum. Ash was excited to see another Yo-Kai up close, but any friendly feelings Jibanyan felt at that moment were quashed when he saw Ash's Pokemon partner Pikachu. Somehow, the electric rodent made the ghostly cat feel aggressive... must be the classic cat-and-mouse enmity at play again. Pikachu returned the negative sentiment and glared at Jibanyan, his cheek crackling with electricity. Ash and Nate had to restrain their partners from duking it out like wild animals and ended their meeting prematurely to calm the two down. Even now, Jibanyan and Pikachu can't look at each other without glaring with a burning desire to fight a rival.
  • Jibanyan isn't just some magical cat; he's a nekomata as evidenced by the split tails. While many other nekomatas in his world greatly resemble him, in the Pantheon they can take on plenty more forms. Koneko Toujou was the first nekomata he met in the Pantheon, and he was pretty confused at first for she looks perfectly human with nary a cat feature on her. He took his words back when he saw her Shirone form, being reminded that Yo-Kai can also have humanoid forms as well. Since then, he sometimes hangs out with her, though their fiery tempers do make them squabble occasionally. She wasn't the only humanoid nekomata around, as he would later encounter Chen, who thankfully has actual cat ears and a split tail. While he does enjoy playing with her, he unfortunately gets to be on the receiving end of Yukari Yakumo's pranks, including her summoning a truck to run him over. When he met Espeon and the Meowstics, he tried folding his ears and placing a gem on his forehead to get psychic powers... no luck, sadly. He's stuck with fire and his paws.
  • The Pantheon has no shortage of cats, from the mundane to the supernatural. Jibanyan falls squarely on the supernatural side, and he has bumped into some other divine felines. For starters, it was no surprise that he would get along with Garfield very well, being very lazy companion cats. Garfield finds the Yo-Kai more bearable than Odie, though Jibanyan does get on his nerves sometimes. Sissel is also someone he hang around with, being undead cats with supernatural powers. He is weirded out how he mistook himself for his dead owner Yomiel, but then again he did forget the exact circumstances of his own death, so it's probably not a bad mistake.He also likes inviting notorious freeloader witch Blair into Nate's temple for kicks, finding Nate's exasperation with his new friends funny. NoLegs, another mischievous cat with spiritual powers, also became another catty companion of Jibanyan, with them joining forces to annoy Nate and the EBF team. Sometimes, Jibanyan practices his fire powers with the Spectral Lion, believing that the Familiar can help him get stronger. And while they're not cats, Jibanyan loves basking in the attention from cat lovers like Sakaki and Ichimatsu Matsuno. It makes him feel like a pampered celebrity!
  • Of all things Jibanyan is, productive is not one of them. He's content to spend his unlife lazing around (especially at Nate's home) and is frustratingly unresponsive when asked to participate in something that doesn't immediately interests him. Such laziness made him natural friends with Sans the literal lazybones, who feeds the Yo-Kai hot dogs whenever they hang out. Houtarou Oreki and Tanaka happen to receive his approval in their laziness and lack of will to expend energy in unnecessary things. Why bother doing something if you don't have and want to? He's also not above assisting Robbie Rotten in his schemes to make his and everyone elses lives lazier, though he is kinda confused about how he ironically works hard to be lazy. However, you won't catch him around Sloth the Indolent and Merak; them being on the side of evil and around very unpleasant and violent folks make them bad bedfellows and thus not really worth the effort to be around.
  • Nothing angers Jibanyan more than trucks. His death came at the hands-er, wheels of such a vehicle. From the first second he became a Yo-Kai, he dedicated himself to standing on street roads, waiting for oncoming trucks to approach him so he can fight them, which always ends with him getting rammed by the vehicle instead. Vehicular collisions are no joke; even godlike aliens like Fecto Forgo can become roadkill if they're on the wrong side of those wheeled menaces! Not even ambulances are safe; just ask that Yoshikage Kira guy. This is why Jibanyan has sworn to defeat Optimus Prime with his Paws of Fury, for he suspects that he's an evil truck who likes running over people and animals, much to the Autobot's confusion. The Ooga Booga, while a mysterious figure who mainly wants to cause mischief and terror by literally jump-scaring people for no good reason, did find Jibanyan to be both a decent monster to hang around, and also having enmity for oblivious automobiles (assuming the driver wasn't terrified in the first place) running the Ooga Booga over, leading to a quick trip to the hospital. Occasionally, they can be seen together standing in the road in an attempt to menace the next truck driving by, to the inconvenience of everyone nearby. This hatred of trucks made Jibanyan an enemy of Walter, lover of fire and monster trucks. The dog is even considering riding one of his favorite trucks just to run over the cat. However, he does get along well with Yusuke Urameshi, who started his journey as a spirit detective after getting run over by a car. Maybe he can tag along with him on his adventures battling spirits as well... By the way, his existence angers a certain incarnation of death that takes the form of a wolf. Not only did he not meet his final end, but as a Yo-Kai he flippantly throws himself at traffic thanks to his near immortality as a Yo-Kai! As if that absurd nine lives thing didn't tick him off already... maybe he should terrorize that nekomata like he did with Puss in Boots, then that will teach him to respect the unlive he lives.
  • Sakura Minamoto of Franchouchou fame was running late for a rehearsal, and in her panic she failed to notice that she crossed the street at a red light and was about to meet the business end of a truck. Miraculously, Jibanyan tackled her out of the way, taking the brunt of the hit instead. After realizing that she wasn't struck, Sakura looked around and saw a cat lying limply on the road and picked him up to carry him to the sidewalk. When Jibanyan came to his senses, he bragged about being her brave savior who snatched her from the jaws of death, an ego trip that was deflated when Sakura sheepishly mentioned that, being a zombie, she wouldn't die from such a thing anymore. Still, after learning that they were brought back as undead beings after getting rammed by trucks made the Yo-Kai decide to give Sakura his Yo-Kai Medal so that she can call him anytime in case of truck-related problems. Sakura is glad to make a new friend and accepted his offer. Now, he sometimes hangs around the zombie idols during their free time.
  • Jibanyan's Soultimate Move is the Paws of Fury, a furious flurry of paws that pummel anything in front of it. While effective against the living and Yo-Kai, it doesn't do much against something made of steel, like a truck. Still, it's a move that Jibanyan is proud of and continues to refine, hoping that one day it'll be strong enough to destroy those wheeled menaces. However, such a move is not unique to the nekomata; others like Kenshiro and Jotaro Kujo have also mastered that technique to the point that it's incredibly deadly, even lethal, to their opponents. Naturally, Jibanyan is more than willing to fight them to prove that he is the strongest one around. Unfortunately for him, they never accept his offers for battle; Kenshiro judges him as not evil, thus undeserving of being slain by the Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken, and Jotaro simply doesn't care about an annoying cat like him.
  • Jibanyan's absolute favorite food in the whole world is chocolate. More specifically, he eats a brand of chocolate bars called Chocobars, of which he stashes a few of them under his yellow haramaki. This aligns very well with Chip, who's also a connoisseur of chocolate bars. They band together to eat tasty chocolate bars of different brands and favors. However, one human boy has caught the Yo-Kai's eye... a boy by the name of Charlie Bucket. Hearing of his trip to Willy Wonka's esteemed chocolate factory, Jibanyan has come up with a most ingenious plan: convince Charlie to take him to the factory, usurp the Wonka guy, and hoard all the chocolate for himself! Yes, this plan will be so much easier than to make his own chocolate factory by himself. Now, if only he could actually convince him to hand over a golden ticket...
  • Jibanyan is a big fan of an idol group named Next HarMEOWny, where its members are all dressed in catlike uniforms. Being a diehard fan, he buys their merch and attends their concerts like any good idol otaku. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be any merch of Next HarMEOWny in the Pantheon, nor do they have any concerts booked anywhere. Really, Sakura's idol group is cool with their undead gimmick, and 765 pro and μ's are nice and all, but none of them have a strong cat aesthetic like them... oh well. The best thing Jibanyan can do is advertise Next HarMEOWny all by himself in the hopes that the other deities would gain an interest in them and eventually invite them into the Pantheon for a concert that would draw in millions. For now, he's settled for the next best thing: the Jellicle cats, who fulfill the singing cat thing very well.

  • Imagination and fantasy isn't at all a bad thing, especially at a young age, but like all good things too much of it can quickly turn into a negative. More so if it doesn't subside when one gets older. Yosh-, er, um, Phonon is a young girl longing to be special and escaping from her perceived normal and uneventful life. After hearing rumors of living shadows and cases of people suddenly falling unconscious from encounters with them, she blindly jumps onto the idea of an opportunity to exit said life. This lead to her first encounter with a Void, one she barely escaped with her life, and ended up passing out from the sheer stress of it all. Not too long after that fateful night she gets scouted out by the Existence Force Guardians, a group comprised of another school's student council, who wish to help out their fellow students who have turned in In-Births themselves. Phonon agreed to join, but only did so for her own gain as to learn more about her new powers and the phenomenon of the Hollow Night itself, and after a month she ditched the EFG to become an unaffiliated In-Birth.
  • Phonon managed to ascend after getting into a fight with the Inspector regarding her name. She intended to be another follower to some god but the insistence that she present her real name set her off. Once the Court of Gods caught wind of this, they decided to invite her for that very reason as it connects to her disassociation with reality and her desire to live out her fantasies where she, like her curiosity with the Hollow Night, jumped right along with. Calling her "Yoshiko" is practically her Berserk Button. In fact she saw the Pantheon as something not too different from the Night in the end: "A special dimension that only the chosen can enter". Phonon would of liked that her reason for entry as a goddess to be cooler than that but she'll take what she can get. Godhood is godhood.
  • Her power is the EXS of Resonance: Baroque Noise. With it, she's able manipulate soundwaves which she uses in conjunction with her whip to either create projectiles or enhance her physical attacks, allowing Phonon to even break the sound barrier. Likely to make sure she doesn't get harmed by her own powers, Phonon wears headphones to protect her ears. This may or may not be also be representative of her loner nature. Combined with her whip, Meuniel, and she's basically a Long-Range Fighter. It's a weaponized fragment of a void, taking its form from Phonon's personality, and doubles as a cute talking snake that moos like a cow when it is not in use.
  • A Jerkass with a habit of wise-cracking she naturally didn't have that much friends back home and it is a mystery as to how Nanase is even good friends with Phonon given their conflicting personalities (Nanase herself is a brick-headed Tsundere, you see). She even attacked her in a fit of rage in one possible instance of the Hollow Knight at some point! Though that seems to be an isolated incident stemming from her Berserk Button as in other instances she's willing to have her tag along and mentor her given her role as her sempai. Setting aside she's as just as much of a newbie to the Night as Nanase. Not helping things is Nanase not wanting to shatter the fantasies the chuunibyou makes for herself, even going along with it after the instance when she attacked her just to make her sempai happy.
  • Phonon wasn't glad to meet Hyde again in the Pantheon, finding him an annoying idiotic dork after killing the cool atmosphere she put tried up when they first encountered each other. A bit of a disappointment considering his personality is a sharp contrast to his appearance. Hyde returns said feelings, and its not hard to see why. While we're here it would be worthwhile to note how they are Foils to each other. While Phonon wanted to be an In-Birth and her disposition is that of an edgelord and wants to distance herself from her normal life as much as possible, Hyde wasn't so happy with becoming who he is. As much as he's willing to help people out he in the end just wants to return to being a normal kid.
    • She also wasn't pleased to hear that Hilda was in the Pantheon, whom she originally sought out in order to help with her image before realizing that's a bad idea despite having meet with a former associate of Hilda's who specifically told her not to in the first place. While the Amnesia leader was pretty off her rocker by default, calling her an old lady right in front of her face to keep up her facade had only worsened things. Hilda still remembers that comment, by the way, and still wants to pay Phonon back for that. In spite of that, Phonon still thinks she's cool and someone worth looking up to. Considering how they're not so different in the end it may come as no surprise. The Chemeti displays similar distaste towards the likes of Merkava and Carmine like so many other denizens of the Night before her.
  • Despite her haughtiness, Phonon has actually been genuinely friendly towards the idol Ranko Kanzaki despite being a lot nicer person than the In-Birth. Chuuni stick together is our guess, and she's apparently more forgiving towards her Adorkableness in comparison to Hyde. Though the time where she along with many idols got transported to Sky World and actually gained powers might have helped things. That wonderful thrill of finally being able to live out ones "true self" as Phonon puts it? She gets that, not a lot of people do.
    • And speaking of chuunibyou, through Ranko she managed to also befriend the likes of Rintarou Okabe, Jurai Andou, and Megumin. Quite the odd, merry band they have going on. Now they have a "Domineering S&M Queen" in their midst.
  • She was quite the imaginative storywriter in her younger years and even a fan of magical girls, which likely gave rise to her motivations latter down the line. As a person with actual powers now she aims to grow pass them and for that Phonon is looking for cool people to follow. That encounter with Hilda turned out to be a bust, but the Pantheon has so many more individuals to scout for and look up to. For one, there's Morrigan Aensland whom she heard about when a multitude of people have commented on how she reminds them of the succubi due to her color scheme. Aside from her there's also Akasha as well as Ann Takamaki.
    • Having said all that she's too intimidated to confront any of them save for Ann. As far as how her relationship with the Phantom Thief goes while they do choose to idolize the sort of villainous characters, Ann thinks Yosh- ahem, Phonon takes it way too far by going for the genuine article. That, and she tries way too hard on that attempted S&M queen persona. The two have their bickering, but it usually doesn't go any further than that. Not after that one time where they did fight and got stuck on each other's whips and had to be untied by G36 after blundering into her while they were still tied up.
  • While wandering the Pantheon she initially mistook the members of Xanadu Research Club for the EFG catching up with her though was quickly corrected when she initially confronted them. Even so, she had to admit they weren't far off the basic descriptor of a group comprised of students that banded together thanks to some supernatural phenomena. In any case, they're a goodie-two shoes group like them but since none of them have any affiliations with the EFG Phonon has no further interest in them. That, and she didn't want to put up with Kou Tokisaka's First-Name Basis. On the XRC's end they cannot help but be concerned by her notorious overconfidence when it comes to the Hollow Night and wouldn't place it above her to get cocky when it comes to the Greeds they've faced. Of them, Asuka Hiiragi seems to be most bothered by that conclusion as she is somewhat reminded of the situation when it came to them encountering the Grim Greed and she tried taking on it by herself, thinking it's too much for the rest of them, only to pay for it dearly by being captured.
  • The thought of being a normal girl is horrible enough to Phonon that she only discarded it when her life was in danger by the Void from long ago. It's just that bad of a situation to her. When it had turned out she gained powers in that whole debacle she quickly went back to her usual self, completely ignoring any sort of epiphany or lesson that could of been gained by the experience. Thus, when she heard that Amon and Copen Kamizono are capable of disabling people's abilities she was genuinely terrified of them and is working. Though her fears are far from unfounded the two seem be more concerned with more persistent threats. Namely each other, for one.
  • Though she hold the title of hating one's own birth name it would be silly to think she's the only one with that sort of problem. Setsuna F. Seiei and and Celestia Ludenberg are also not at all fond their own names. Having said that Setsuna thinks Phonon's reasons for doing so and violent reactions are much more ridiculous compared to his own. Calling him Soran Ibrahim comes with the not-so great connections to his days as a young terrorist under the will of Ali al-Saachez, but even his reactions are moreso anger or shock rather than full on violence. As for Celestia, she chides Phonon for the lack of elegance on display and should at the very least improve on that front. This is of course ignoring that the Ultimate Gambler herself can get quite nasty in her anger once pressed sufficiently, especially if it pertains to her past as a plain girl. In that sense, she's not too dissimilar from Phonon in that regard. It's just that Phonon is all too eager to use Meuniel should it come to that.
  • "I guess I'm kind of like those heroines who awaken to special powers one day. I'm an In-Birth, or whatever they're called... Might as well use these cool powers for my own benefit."

  • News of Rumpelstiltskin arrival came from Billy, one of the few people in the Pantheon who didn't know how to deal with him. Mandy and Grimm made short work of that puzzle, and Rumpelstiltskin tried to convince the Court of the Gods to retract his name from the minds of those who knew. His plea was swiftly rejected. Now, he targets people who do not know of him and are too scared to ask for help.
    • His story is one of ulterior motives. He agreed to help a woman to make gold out of straw... for the condition of claiming her first born. It seemed like things would go as planned, but his arrogance convinced him to give her one chance. All she had to do was to say his name... one he had never previously given her. Again, his arrogance did him in when he proclaimed his name in the forest... right when one of the woman's spies were spying on him. Once the gig was up, he went in such a rage that no one can truly say what happened to him in the end. Some say he ripped himself in half. Other said he stomped his way all the way to Hell.
  • Shrek and his friends were on high alert upon his ascension. They knew Rumpelstiltskin still holds a grudge for robbing him of a deal with Fiona's parents. Indeed, the magical being tried to goad Shrek into wishing away his existence. This time, the ogre responded by punting him out of his swamp. One can expect Rumpelstiltskin to wait for an opportunity for Shrek to slip up.
  • Some theorize that Rumpelstiltskin is associated with dwarves. That theory isn't supported by any of the dwarven deities as all of them have disassociated themselves with the short man. Rumpelstiltskin does not care one bit, claiming jealousy at the fact that he can create gold, a feat no dwarf has done before.
  • Courage was not happy with his ascension. He already had to deal with a version of him in Scotland named Rumpelstiltskin. While that version became more friendly once he knew his name, this one has no intention of losing gracefully.
  • The Muppets were happy to remind others of the story of Rumpelstiltskin. Gonzo himself even reprised the role of the dwarf. As far as performances go... Rumelstiltskin thought it was pretty decent. It at least let him off better than most other stories.
  • Turns out another fiend gave some people a similar challenge to say their name in order to win. Beetlejuice made sure that the only way to beat him was to say his name three times. The poltergeist didn't starting things on the right foot, saying the dwarf shouldn't have said his name in song form. But it didn't take long for the two to bond. Both hand magical powers and loved to use them in mischievious ways.
  • In one reality, he used the Magic Mirror to go to a world without magic in order to conquer it. He did this all while antagonizing Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood in the process. The women already had a low opinion on him (Rapunzel especially since she lived through what Rumpelstiltskin could have done with the queen's baby), but this stunt was enough for all of them to put him on their shit list.
    • The Magic Mirror didn't take too kindly the idea of becoming a conduit between the fairy tale world and the real world. With that said, he sees Rumpelstiltskin at the middle of the road in terms of evil beings he had to deal with. Worse than the Evil Queen but not as bad as Lord Faruqaad.

    The Voice inside your Head 
The Voice Inside your Head, Deity of Not Needing Names (Gay Mexican-Ass in my Ass)
  • Lesser Deity
  • Symbol: Himself. He doesn't really need symbols

  • Alignment: Lawful Evil, but believes himself to be Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Affably Evil, Arc Villain, Back from the Dead, Came Back Strong, Evil Brit, Knight of Cerebus

  • Respects: All ascended deities of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
  • Oppose: Anime in general, as well as Otakus and Weeaboos.
  • The entity behind the Reboot, The Voice inside your Head seemingly took over SiIvaGunner's channel with one particular goal in mind, delete Snow Halation from existance. While his plans ultimately were foiled by Chad Warden after he sacrificed himself using the power of the MF Like Button, the Voice resurfaced during Christmas, his resurrection apparently caused by none other than Wood Man.
  • The Voice seeks to destroy all anime as he considers it "Weeaboo anime bullshit" and after he returned during the Christmas Comeback Crisis, he put his plan in motion. Now that he is here in the pantheon, the targets he has to exterminate has increased by a lot but he is determined to follow through his plans.
  • He wasn't happy to learn that Chad Warden was already present before he came along, but the voice tried to negotiate a deal with Chad. It failed horribly, as Chad kept calling him Gay Mexican-Ass in my Ass and calling him other names, so he will have his revenge by other methods if necessary.
  • He hates μ's with a passion and they were primarely the reason he caused the reboot in SiIva's channel. In the reboot universe he replaced the "Snow Halation" rips with "GO MY WAY!" instead. But the latter aren't to his liking either, since he publicly executed the Cinderella girls as a warning to his enemies.
  • Believe or not, the only one exempt of his wrath are the ascended cast of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure since he doesn't consider them anime, but "Manime". Said characters have no strong opinions on the voice, but they aren't fond of him either.
  • He was the one that created Wood Man in the SiIvaverse, mostly so the Voice would stay alive thanks to Wood Man's will. However, Wood Man eventually left the Voice's command and now hunts superheroes with Robbie Rotten
  • Sometime after the Christmas Comeback Crisis, the Voice was overthrown by none other than Inspector Gadget with little effort. Obviously he hates the inspector after what happened, but it's not sure if the ascended Gadget is the same one that actually attacked him.
  • In his crusade against anime, he found an unlikely ally in Filthy Frank who also got to deal with a lot of weeaboos himself. Although Frank keeps their relation casual, since he finds the voice to be a weirdo.
  • Was once caught singing "GO MY WAY", which prompted other deities to call him in a Hypocrite given his hate for anime. He has yet to respond.
  • Really loves pizza, to an unhealthy extent.

  • Rivals: Mandy
  • Dislikes: Kokichi Oma
  • Wary of: Laetitia
  • Adored by: All child deities in the Pantheon (except for the most evil), especially the House of Childhood and Adolescence
  • Sympathetic to: The Delightful Children From Down The Lane
  • Maki was the V3 Killing Game participants, ironically bearing the tile of "Ultimate Child Caregiver" despite being a Child Hater due to children at the orphanage adoring her. It later turns out she's actually the Ultimate Assassin, and while she initially acted cold towards everyone, she begins to warm up to some of her fellow students, especially Kaito Momota. She ends up being one of the three survivors of the Killing Game alongside Shuichi and Himiko.
  • Maki would be invited to the Pantheon due to the gods taking interest in how she came to accept Kaito's nickname for her. Maki finds it a little embarrassing and would rather let Kaito call her that. While she's disappointed that Kaito hasn't ascended yet, she still accepts her invitation due to Shuichi being present in the Pantheon, and is willing to wait as long as it takes for Kaito to ascend.
    • Maki, now having becoming a kinder person after making friends in the Killing Game, begins to interact with the other deities from her universe. While she still talks mainly with Shuichi since he and Kaito were the people she spoke with the most, she does manage to interact with other people. When Maki expresses some surprise when some of them eagerly accept her as a friend despite her talent, they all point out that Toko Fukawa has a split-personality as a serial killer, not to mention some of them aren't exactly innocent themselves.
    • Kaede, though surprised to learn that Maki is actually the Ultimate Assassin, still accepts her as a friend, while Maki slowly builds a friendship with the Ultimate Pianist due to being moved by her kindness and acceptance. The two tend to meet in their spare time, engaging in conversation as they get to know each other.
    • Tends to spar with Sakura Oogami on some occasions, being one of the most athletic girls in among her classmates. Although, Maki states she isn't really interested in fighting all that much.
    • Once teamed up with Genocide Jill during a sports festival, mainly because of how unpredictable she is. On the other hand though, Maki does seem disturbed by Jill's insanity, as well as her lust for Byakuya Togami.
    • Aoi Asahina likes to hang out with Maki and play sports with her while also eating snacks with her (especially donuts unsurprisingly). While Maki did get roped into it once, she admits she actually enjoyed it. Kyoko also hung out with the two girls, so she and Maki are also on civil terms.
    • Chiaki Nanami (both the AI and the human) introduced Maki to video games and suggested she try playing them with the children. They generally play First-Person Shooters.
    • Chihiro Fujisaki came to see Maki as a supporting figure, not only because she helped him when it came to burying a dead bird, but also because they came to an understanding over their secrets. The two quickly learned the other's secret in the Pantheon (Maki being the Ultimate Assassin, Chihiro being male), but neither ended up judging the other.
    • Maki has nothing but utter contempt for Junko and Tsumigi Shirogane for the Deadly Games they put their fellow classmates through. Maki has experience in dealing with Shirogane and promises to stop her and Junko for the sake of her new friends.
      • Because of her experience with Hope Crushers, Maki has become enemies naturally with the likes of Terumi and Joker, both of whom enjoy breaking people's hopes and driving them to despair. Since Terumi gets from his enemies hatred of him, Maki decides to get rid of her emotions entirely when fighting him, turning her into an apathetic killing machine. This also helps her in dealing with Joker, who can't break her due to her apathy, though he has managed to break her stoic attitude by reminding her of Kaito.
    • While Maki claims to dislike children despite them liking her, a lot of people in the Pantheon seemed to doubt such a claim, just like Kaito. However, this truly does seem to be case for Monaca Towa, considering how she brainwashed other children and had them kill people around them, even going so far as to attempt to manipulate Komaru into killing them all and potentially starting a war. Maki finds this young girl truly rotten to the core, finding her actions towards both children and adults outright atrocious.
    • To say Maki is less than fond to reunite with Kokichi in the Pantheon is a huge Understatement. He was the one who revealed her true talent to everyone in the Killing Game, and constantly antagonized her throughout it. Maki still has utter hatred for him, even if his actions did contribute to stopping the Killing Game, all the while Kokichi still messes with her occasionally.
  • Other assassins in the Pantheon have taken an interest in Maki's skills. The members of the Brotherhood of Assassins have offered Maki a place amongst their order. Maki is honored, but has turned it down due to feeling she needs to help her friends right now. Yoruka Kirihime, despite being different to Maki in personality, also fell in love with someone who treated her with kindness, so the two form an Odd Friendship with each other. Gunvolt's personality can be described as the opposite of Maki's initial demeanor, but the two also become good friends, with Gunvolt also showing pride in Maki growing beyond her solitude and actually finding friends. Night Raid's friendship with each other reminds Maki of her friends, and while she does decline the offer to join their group, she does become an Honorary True Companion to them. Especially with Mine due to their initial attitudes towards their Love Interests before falling in love with them. Koro-Sensei, despite his eccentrics, was once one of the best assassins of his time and even trained an entire class of high school students to be assassins. Maki finds his behavior bizarre, she is honored to meet him and also surprised that the skills of assassins can actually be used in a beneficial way.
  • Maki's well-liked by children in general, despite her claims of hating them. This seems to stem from the fact she had to look after the children at the orphanage she once lived at. Just like in the mortal world, Maki is adored by children in the Pantheon as well. Despite her claims of being annoyed, the other deities don't seem to buy it at all, especially not her friends from her world.
    • Nanako finds Maki to be a supporting figure despite the latter's attempts to act cold to her, which isn't helped by the fact she still looks out for the girl's well-being and gives her sound advice. This earned her the friendship of Yu Narukami and the Investigation Team, all of whom look out for Nanako and happily accept Maki as a friend.
    • Maki is downright shocked and concerned by Baby Bink's fearlessness and tendency to get into trouble without actually getting harmed. Maki is unamused by Baby Bink's tendency to disappear the moment she takes her eyes off him for a second, forcing her to go to great lengths to find him. Kaede, Shuichi, and Tenko are willing to help Maki with keeping Baby Bink safe, even if they tend to meet the same misfortune as her.
    • Seems to get along the most with Momo Isshiki, most likely due to how she's the most mature child she's ever met. Maki and Momo admit that while they both find the people they care about the most a handful, they will still be there for them no matter what. They both respect each other for this.
  • Despite claiming to not like children, even Maki is disgusted with grown ups and adults who abuse children. Some of the most notable include:
    • Vicky for being a cruel and barbaric babysitter. It's gotten to the point where Maki ends up protecting children from her, with Vicky actually feeling fear towards the assassin's killing intent and staying away from her.
    • Agatha Trunchbull for being a Sadist Teacher. Just like Vicky, Agatha has learned to fear Maki's killing intent and see her as The Dreaded.
    • Alessi had assaulted a few children in the Pantheon. When Maki immediately fought him in defense of those children, Alessi tried to de-age Maki to make her an easier opponent to fight. But just like with Jotaro, Maki showed that even as a child, she still manages to knock him to ground with ease, since she started her assassin training when she was very young.
    • Dolores Umbridge probably fears Maki, especially after the latter learned of how she used the blood quill on Harry and a few other students. Feeling her presence is the one of the two things that will elicit an Oh, Crap! from Umbridge, the other being the sound of horse galloping.
  • Dorothy Haze and Maki form a surprising friendship due to how they're a friend to children (even if Maki claims otherwise). Just like everyone else, Dorothy doesn't believe Maki's claim of being a Child Hater, stating that children had to like her for a reason, not to mention she went out of her way to take care of them even though she didn't have to. While Maki still denies this, she does admit Dorothy does provide good company.
  • While she isn't the type to show fear, Maki is rather wary of Laetitia. Her Deadly Pranks, even if they aren't done out of malice, make her a very dangerous threat to her, so Maki prefers to stay away from no matter what.
  • Maki is surprised to find out how much she has in common with Killua, since they were trained to be assassins at a young age, but eventually found friends that brought out the best in them. This is probably why Killua and Maki are able to form a quick friendship with each other, with Killua and Maki helping each other with their personal problems.
  • Besides Monaca, Maki has interacted with several vile children in the Pantheon. Many of those evil children, such as Rhoda Penmark and Eric Cartman, have felt Maki's killing intent and have learned to fear her as a result. Hansel and Gretel are far too Ax-Crazy to care, which naturally makes them Too Dumb to Live. The Delightful Children From Down The Lane are perhaps the only evil kids Maki feels sympathy for after learning of their circumstances.
    • Mandy shows many similarities to Maki in personality, such as her aloofness and seriousness, but Maki has learned to care for her friends. Mandy only rarely shows good intentions, but mostly hasn't changed at all. Maki has formed an intense rivarly with Mandy due to their similarities as a result.
