Greater Gods

    Alcor 
Alcor, God of Stellar Names (Al Saiduq, The Anguished One, Angy, The Eighth Septentrione)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/anguished_one.png
  • Greater God; Overdeity if given access to the Akashic Record
  • Symbol: The Nicaea logo
  • Theme Song: Septentrione, the Devil Survivor 2 opening, or The Anguished One
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral Orange
  • Portfolio: Walking Spoiler, Anti-Villain, Gravity Master, The Lucifer of the Star Race, Inhuman Morality, Mystical White Hair, Power Floats, Older than Mankind, E.T. Gave Us Summoning Spells, It's All My Fault, Sinister Geometry, Rage Against the Heavens, The Starscream, Dragon Ascendant, Well-intentioned Manipulative Bastard, Skill Crack, Even Chaos Has Standards
  • Domains: Enigmas, Stars, Freedom
  • Followers: Benevolent Eldritch Abominations, Miyako Hotsuin, Bifrons, Botis
  • Allies: Yamato Hotsuin, The SCP Foundation, the Grand United Alliance of Chaos, the Chaos Brigade, Greed the Avaricious, The Men in Black, The Machine, Samael, Kaworu Nagisa
  • Enemies: The Administrators, Azathoth, Cthulhu, the Eldrazi, Father and all Homunculi loyal to him, the Grand United Alliance of Law, Airy, HAL 9000, Samaritan, Loki's Brood, Lord Chaos
  • Opposes: Any Top God, like Arceus
  • Opposed by: Cosmos, Palutena, Pit, Zeus
  • Complicated Relationship with: H.P. Lovecraft, Lelouch vi Britannia
  • The first sign of Alcor's appearance in the Pantheon was when the Men in Black and the SCP Foundation each found new technology in their bases, complete with instruction manuals and [REDACTED]. He was given an SCP classification and works actively with both organizations, although neither is given full knowledge of his plans and nature. He is also responsible for the acquisition of [DATA EXPUNGED].
  • Arcturus, once feared by many for its invulnerability, is now much more vulnerable due to the presence of Yamato and now Alcor, both of whom can destroy it, resulting in something very much like hatred from the usually emotionless Administrator.
  • Polaris, after one more request for Alcor to return to her side, sent every Septentrione after him at once. Using the Four Prime Factors (Space, Time, Gravity, and Heat) he was capable of destroying all of them in only a short time. When finishing off Mizar, it is rumored that, under his breath, he said, "I'm sorry, my brother..."
  • Many Lawful deities have teamed together to protect Polaris from Alcor, as they see him with the power to reshape reality with the Akashic Record as a greater threat than the Administrators.
  • Alliance with him is very desirable, as his Nicaea app allows for the summoning of demons and the learning of one ability used by an enemy in every battle. However, no one seems to be able to find him unless he wants them to.
  • Gets along splendidly with Lucifer, since they have a lot in common. However, he is somewhat put off by the idea of Natural Selection unchecked, and refuses to join the GUAC because of that. He still works with the Chaos Brigade, though.
  • He and Kaworu Nagisa are remarkably similar, and Alcor sometimes regrets that Lucifer is in charge of the GUAC (other than the fact that anyone at all is "in charge") rather than Kaworu, who leans more towards Good than any of the Satanic Archetypes.
  • His long business relationship with Yamato has allowed them to work well together against the Administrators, as well as the Grand United Alliance of Law.
  • Despises YHVH for being so much like Polaris, despite it actually being the other way around
  • Alcor distrusts and dislikes any deities of the Top God variety, due to experience with Polaris and Canopus, as well as being opposed to authority of any kind. He is particularly skeptical of Arceus.
  • Good friends with Greed, since they both rebelled against and ultimately destroyed their evil masters. Also, they find it amusing that each of them is the rebellious one out of a group of eight (although Greed was two of them).
    • Due to this, Alcor has proven to be one of Father's most dangerous enemies, once almost defeating him before being fended off by Pride, giving Father time to escape. Alcor beat Pride, and wrote a message to that effect in the sky... with shadowy tendrils that he had skillcracked from Pride.
  • Since he is a good AI, Alcor gets along with The Machine and hates the many evil computers in the Pantheon such as HAL 9000 and Samaritan who encourage technophobia.
  • He actually gets along better with Samael than Lucifer due to Samael not being a Social Darwinist.
  • Alcor has a strange relationship with H.P. Lovecraft, since he would very probably not exist without the concept of Eldritch Abominations, but Lovecraft portrayed the Great Old Ones as uncaring and malicious, whereas Alcor argues that Blue-and-Orange Morality can just as easily go the other way, and since Azathoth, Cthulhu, and the other Lovecraftian horrors are categorized as Blue, Alcor publicly identifies as Orange, despite arguments to the effect that assigning a duality to Blue-and-Orange Morality merely creates a third alignment axis.
  • He claims to be Good, but most divinely associated deities, notably Cosmos and Palutena, get an uneasy feeling when around him, possibly due to his role in his own world.
  • Feels absolute disgust and contempt for Airy because she chose to side with her eldritch master against her travelling companions, whereas he resisted Polaris in favor of humans and the world.
  • Admires Lelouch for doing what was necessary to defeat Britannia and ultimately sacrificing himself to save the world from tyranny. Lelouch dislikes Alcor, though, because he never thought through what would happen after defeating Polaris, and in his ending to the original story dooms what is left of the world to starvation because of how little is left.
  • Seeks to defy the future by allowing people to see videos via Nicaea of those close to them dying in order to prevent it. This caused an emnity with Loki's Children, who would foretell the end of existence themselves, and do not want for it to be prevented.
  • Despises Lord Chaos for giving his namesake alignment a bad name. Alcor firmly believes that Chaos is a force for freedom, not destruction.
  • Pit doesn't like him. Other loyal angels also dislike Alcor in general, but Pit for whatever reason is very concerned about the number of Satanic Archetypes showing up, and thinks he may be able to take the Anguished One on using the Great Sacred Treasure.
  • Zeus compares Alcor to Prometheus, since he gave humanity technology to deal with demons. Other deities fear the destruction that would ensue if they came to blows, as although Alcor is not very aware of Greek mythology, he wouldn't be very fond of the Lord of the Sky.
  • Alcor was essential to showing Canopus that Earth was more than just an Insignificant Blue Planet (despite the negative consequences this brought), before defeating him. He believes that he can similarly force the Great Old Ones and possibly even the Outer Gods from the Cthulhu Mythos to respect humanity, and is confident that Azathoth could be handled just like Canopus. The ones that have taken notice of him dislike this, and intend to teach him the true meaning of a Cosmic Horror Story.

    Mem Aleph 
Mem Aleph, Goddess of Villains With Motherly Names
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mem_aleph.png
  • Greater Goddess (Overdeity in her Empty form)
  • Symbol: A pitch black globe
  • Theme Song: Take the Shield, Raise the Spear
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil in actions, True Neutral in intentions (officially Light-Neutral or Neutral-Neutral)
  • Portfolio: Walking Spoiler, One Bad Mother Of A Thousand Young, Big Bad, Humanoid Abomination, Avenging The Pollution Of The World, The Schwarzwelt, Light Is Not Good, Extra Eyes, Pitiless Sense Of Justice, Wields Many Elements, Standard Status Effects, Mother Nature
  • Domains: Demons, Mothers, The Human Soul, The Schwarzwelt
  • Heralds: Her fellow Mother Goddesses-Ouroboros Maia, Tiamat and Maya
  • Followers: Mother Machine, Eve, SCP-597, Mother
  • Allies: Gaea, Tiamat ( Shin Megami Tensei), Shub-Niggurath, Gohma Vlitra, Lucifer and the GUAC, the Demons sub-house (except the Godhand and Nosferatu Zodd), The Spring Sprite, Pamela Isley, Ra's Al Ghul
  • Respects: The Nature Preservers and those like Celebi who protect the environment, Captain Planet
  • Enemies: YHVH, Metatron and the GUAL, Hexxus, The Imperium of Mankind, Chakravartin, The Godhand and Griffith, humans like Mr Burns who ruin and exploit the environment, The Tyranid Hive Fleet, The Grox, Alexstraza, Amatsu-Mikaboshi, the GUAD, Amatserasu
  • Opposes: Humanity, The Other Mother
  • Pities: Kurama, We3
  • The Earth in its many incarnations has seen a Forever War in the form of Order Versus Chaos, despoiling its beauty. Humans have allowed themselves to pollute their home. However the will of the Earth has a face and an agenda, in the form of Mem Aleph. Mother to demons, life and the human soul, she believes their former beauty has been twisted beyond repair. She created the Schwarzwelt to unleash demons and restore the world.
  • Is One Bad Mother, but doesn't see it that way. She's not the only one either, though, whenever she appears, she's quite often the main threat. She even has a little posse: Ouroboros Maia serves as her literal Dragon, who's in charge of the lush Sector Eridanus. Tiamat is in charge of Sector Fornax, a sea goddess who plans to overrun humanity with her millions of demon children. Finally there is Maya, in charge of Sector Grus and a goddess of illusions.
  • Capable of enthralling mother goddesses with "ma" in their name, even the likes of Mara. Mara and Amaterasu managed to resist this thrall and the latter is still very sour about it.
  • While The Other Mother is also One Bad Mother like her, the two do not get along. Mem Aleph, for all of her faults, still cares about her offspring in her own way. The Bedlam steals children to be hers and to feed on them, and as such Mem Aleph considers her a disgrace to mother figures everywhere.
  • A staunch ally to both Gaea and Shub-Niggurath, due to embodying the world and being a Mother of a Thousand Young. While very similar to the Earth Mother, Mem Aleph is a lot less apathetic. She can be just as troublesome, however, as the Schwarzwelt could easily end in the world being more ruined. Though in her eyes, you can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs, however tragic doing so might be. This has happened more than once. Insists that she is the original mother goddess, and all the others cribbed her notes.
  • Similar to Gohma Vlitra, due to being the embodiment of the Earth and Gaia's Vengeance. As such, she was initially opposed by Asura. That was, of course, until she learned that his Earth was being ruined by Chakravartin, who is cut from the same stripe as YHVH, who she absolutely detests. She focused her antagonism away from Asura and immediately on Chakravartin, though he's not that concerned with her.
  • Few words can describe the depths of Mem Aleph's hatred for YHVH. She considers His Law and His arrogance to be abominable, and His genocidal plans to be worse still. She and the other Mothers battled YHVH, causing Him to shatter. One of those pieces was the Demiurge. Given YHVH Himself is not the Great Will so much as its avatar, she feels its appropriate. She's firmly on Team Lucifer as a result, trusting him to lead the way through the chaos, and has in turn been entrusted with a high position in the ranks.
  • She naturally opposes the entire Grand United Alliance of Destruction as well. Especially Amatsu-Mikaboshi...after all, in the chaotic world HE would create, there is no room for life to flourish.
  • Mother to all demons, she has an honorary possession in the House of Demons. While she gets along with them, there is one exception-the Godhand, and by extension Griffith. As former humans she doesn't consider them true demons, and the Vicious Cycle they've set up to enforce their own cruel form of fate is a sign in her eyes of how far humanity has fallen. She also doesn't care much for their general demeanor.
    • On their end, Griffith has an interest in learning about and possibly exploiting exploiting the Schwarzwelt to change the world to better suit his ambitions, in a manner similar to the World Transformation. He's also shown an interrest in the use of the Formas that happen there to create better equipment for himself and his cause.
  • Has allied herself with the Nature Preservers, and is seen as an honorary member. Good-aligned members generally steer clear of her, though she appreciates their spirit. She is often found exploring the House of Nature, enjoying the surrounds in lounged relaxation or trying to recruit gods to her cause. Naturally she's gotten along with Lucifer. Seems to be fond of Celebi and its kin, however the Time Travel Pokemon doesn't reciprocate, seeing her as too extreme. In addition she has allied with the Spring Sprite in order to help fix the world, and pities Kurama and We3 due to what humanity has done to them.
  • Alexstraza opposes her due to the value she puts on mortals, and seeing her as her Shadow Archetype. The Lifebinder is an aspect of life and guardian of nature, however is an all-loving heroine who loves mortals and has seen first hand what the best they're capable of. She has condemned her for giving up on humans, while Mem Aleph, while appreciative and supportive of what Alecstraza's trying to accomplish, wishes she were more cynical, as she'd be a worthy ally.
  • Considers Hexxus to be an abomination, and seeks to destroy him as soon as possible. She detests Mr Burns due to almost gleefully polluting with no concern or care whatsoever, along with all industrialists. Because the Grox live on ruined wastelands and the Tyranids strip ecosystems to the bedrock, she's not terribly fond of THEM either.
  • Takes umbrage with much of humanity, and of them she seems to detest the Imperium of Mankind the most. While the Earth of SMT might have its issues, Holy Terra is a polluted, overpopulated nightmare that is the center stage of a human empire consumed in xenophobia, fanaticism, conflict and is rendered barren. She was absolutely disgusted to learn what mankind had turned into in the 41st millennium, and considers everyone there irredeemable.
  • In spite of what she sees mankind become, she is capable of seeing the value in some. She admires Pamela Isley's desire to protect plant-kind over humanity, however believes she could be doing more. In particular she's impressed by Ra's Al Ghul and his goals to exterminate most of humanity so as to save the environment. She seems to be fond of Captain Planet, even if he doesn't return the favor due to her extremism.

    Tatsumaki 
Tatsumaki, Goddess of Power-Themed Names (Tornado of Terror, Terrible Tornado, S-Class Superhero)

    Basil Karlo/Clayface 
Basil Karlo, God Of "face" Aliases (Clayface, Matthew "Matt" Hagen, Annie)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clayface_profile_7d7e37_batman_detectivecomics_riseofthebatman_p95_v1_401x600_mastheadjpg__401x600_q85_crop_subsampling_2_upscale_0.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A can Of Renuyu
  • Theme Song: "Man Of Many Faces"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, (Neutral Good on a good day, Chaotic Evil on a bad day)
  • Portfolio: Shape-Shifting Clay Creature, Used to be a handsome actor before his mutation, Hating his condition and seeking a cure, Eventually joining the heroes albeit often relapsing into psychotic villainy, Superpowered Evil Side, Creating beings from his body, Large Ham, Anti-Villain(from time to time), Various different incarnations with insanely contradictory origins
  • Allies: Cassandra Cain, Sandman, Harvey Dent
  • Enemies: Hawkgirl, Barry Allen, Most of the Justice League,Carl Fredricksen, General Corrupt Corporate Executives.
  • Friendly Enemies: Ben Grimm, Hellboy, Victor Stone
  • Rivals: Raven Darkholme, Ditto
  • Pities: Gregor Samsa
  • Opposes: Any fire, ice, and electricity deity
  • Admires: No-Face, Frankenstein's Monster, Eric the Phantom, William Shakespeare
  • "Clayface" is more a title than individual, the identity constantly shifting, but that is quite fitting for an amorphous entity. Since Batman's earliest days, the menace of Clayface has haunted him as a terrifying and often tragic figure, from a sociopathic theatre actor, to a deformed, hopelessly lovelorn madman whose touch melts flesh. The most recent incarnation, however, is Basil Karlo, an aspiring actor who sought more versatile roles. When he was disfigured in an accident, he desperately tried Renu, a chemical cosmetic that lets the user mold their features, and was used by his father to create lifelike stop motion. Things went From Bad to Worse, and Basil eventually broke into the abandoned Renu factory when his supply ran out. Caught by Batman and the police, Karlo tumbled into a vat of bizarre substance-and what emerged was a living horror monster, a being of constantly shifting clay who desired nothing more than to return to his glory days, even if he had to bury the bat alive to do it.
  • Despite his recent reforming, Basil still has a rocky relationship with Batman and the rest of the Bat-Family. While he is trying to be better, he came close to killing his friend Cassandra recently, and for now sticks to his villainous role.
  • Karlo finds a kindred spirit in Flint Marko, the Sandman, as both are humans turned monstrous, Earth-shaking supervillains. They don't usually go on crime sprees together, though, since all that mud and sand gets easily mixed up, and Sandman doesn't want a repeat of the Hydro-Man incident.
  • He can often be found perusing the House of theater. Unfortunately he has a habit of impersonating the actors and trying to take over the shows, usually if he thinks he could do better with the material.
  • Carl Fredricksen recently had a terrifying encounter with Clayface when he sought some solitude in his floating house. His favorite armchair morphed into the monster and tried to eat him! With help from Hawkgirl(who Clayface fears due to an encounter in another reality), he escaped with his life. Apparently, Karlo mistook him for Roland Daggett, the man who he remembers caused his freakish condition in said reality.
  • He doesn't do so hot against ice and cold, which freezes him solid. He's also opposed to every electricity based deity, since that element is what did him in one time.
  • Clayface isn't on good terms with the T-800 mk 2 and the Connors since they mistook him for a Skynet machine. He finds this a little ironic, since this wasn't the part he ever imagined playing in a Terminator film.
  • Hellboy says that Karlo could be a valuable BPRD agent if he'd just keep his monstrous temper and destructive powers under control. He also gets an oddly familiar vibe from him.
  • It's not wise to go over his comic history with him. He once suffered a severe identity crisis from keeping track and split into multiple Clayfaces based on his predecessors. Original Karlo went on a killing spree in the House of Theatre & Spectacle, while Preston and Sondra went on a honeymoon crime spree. Annie took the time to reconnect with Tim Drake and even offered to join the Titans, which went horribly when Basil had to pull himself back together.
  • He's gone on record to say Spirited Away is a favorite animated film of his. He's even expressed interest in the part of No-Face for a live-action remake, as they're both Shape-shifting monsters who form an odd-friendship with a certain young girl. No-face for his part isn't flattered, given how well Americanized anime remakes usually go, and that Clayface is too much of a hot-tempered loud mouth to play him.

    Dickson 
Dickson, God of Assholes Named "Dick" (Disciple Dickson, Dickson of the Trinity)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dickson.png
His Homs form
His true form 
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His gun sword, Sabre
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil (thought to be Neutral Good)
  • Portfolio: Cool Old Guy, Secretly Zanza's Disciple, Really 700 Years Old, Actually a Giant, Follows Zanza for power, Named "Dick"son and Appropriately Named, Shulk's father-figure who later shot him in the back, used him as a host for Zanza, Walking Spoiler
  • Domains: Name, Evil, Dick
  • High Priest: Dick Hardly
  • Followers: Dick Jones, Yellow Dick, Dick Roman
  • Superior: Zanza
  • Enemies: Shulk, Dunban, Reyn, Fiora, Melia, Sharla, Riki, Egil, Metal Face, The Powerpuff Girls, Professor Utonium, Dick Grayson, Richard Rider/Nova
  • Annoyed by: Beavis and Butthead
  • Dickson was a veteran in the battle of Sword Valley and was friends with much of the colonist in Colony 9 like Dunban and Shulk, the latter was a father-figure to him. And then he revealed himself to be one of Zanza's Disciples after shooting him in the back and raised him only because he is the potential host for his master.
    • Since his defeat and ascension, he returns to serve Zanza once again.
  • None of his old "friends" was happy to see him again, especially Shulk and Dunban since the former was raised by him and the latter was an old war buddy.
  • Though he now knows that Metal Face was one of his former war companion, Mumkhar, he doesn't care much for him other than he is in the way.
  • He essentially sold the people of Bionis to Zanza for power, considering what he planned on doing to them. He just take orders from a powerful god and enjoys having such power. That's said, he doesn't always stick to it when he was defeated by Shulk and his party as he just gives up and let them fight Zanza when he saw how powerful the boy was so that he could deny him the satisfaction of victory.
    • While he is manipulative and sacrifices the people of Bionis for Zanza's power, he found Ragyo's sexual abuse to her daughters to be rather disgusting. This is despite him taunting Melia that her brother could be her next boyfriend in the next life.
  • This is not Dickson's true form, as he is really a Giant who serves Zanza.
  • He gets annoyed by Beavis and Butthead as they chuckled on the Dick in his name.
  • Since he raised Shulk at a young age and was seen as a mentor to him, the fact that he backstabbed him and used him as a host for Zanza infuriated several mentors in the Pantheon.
  • The Powerpuff Girls found that he is similar, if not worse, than one of his follower, Dick Hardly. They also were furious that he was a horrible father-figure as he used Shulk as Zanza's host and shot him in the back once Zanza emerges, much like how Dick care little of their clones he created.
  • Both Nightwing and Nova appropriately refer to him as a Dick for his evil deeds, in which Dickson responds with "look who's talking." They are named Dick.

Prime Timeline Khan
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/khan_noonien_singh_alternate_reality.jpg
Kelvin Timeline Khan
  • Theme Song: Ode to Harrison
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: A picture of Marla McGivers or a pod of one of his brethren
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Breakout Villain with an awesome name, Faux Affably Evil, Wicked Cultured, Tragic Villain, The Chessmaster, Evil Overlord, Genius Bruiser, in a Roaring Rampage of Revenge against his Arch-Enemy, Hero Killer, ultimately a Walking Spoiler
  • Domains: Evil, Void, Strength, Knowledge
  • Allies: Grand Admiral Thrawn, Genghis Khan, General Tarquin, Barbatos Goetia, Sauron, Most in the House of Vengeance
  • Enemies: Captain Kirk, McCoy, Spock, Jean-Luc Picard, Worf, Honor Harrington, John Sheridan.
  • Opposes: Doctor Strange, Sherlock Holmes
  • Opposed by: The Count of Monte Cristo, Tokiya Mikagami
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Shogo Makishima
  • Pities: Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze
  • Among Kirk's enemies, there is one name the God of Space won't dare forget. Khan had yet to enter the Pantheon at the time, much to the concern of the Enterprise crew. Indeed, Khan had a plan in store. He would enter the Pantheon as a Commander of Starfleet and would take his revenge on his Archenemy. Unfortunately, everyone in the temple saw his agenda a mile away. But by the time Kirk drove him out, he had already discovered that Khan had successfully entered the Pantheon. Kirk did not take this development well.
    Kirk: .....KHAAAAAAAAAAANNNNN!!!
  • There has been two versions of the character and yet both are motivated by surprising acts of love. The original version fell in love with Marla McGivers, who together ruled Ceti Alpha V for a brief time before her death. The rebooted version wanted to save his crew members from stasis. Both versions are fueled by revenge and want nothing better than the death of Kirk and his crew.
  • That extends to all of his allies and there are a lot of them, which infuriated them further. He proceeded to set a trap on Picard's crew, marooning them on a planet just as he did to Kirk. Luckily, other pilots were aware of his tactics and got him out shortly afterwards. Kirk has warned all of his allies to be wary of the man.
  • Next, he tried to take over a sizable chunk of Honor Harrington's fleet... and succeeded. She call help from friendly fleets from all over the Pantheon to quash the mutiny. Khan is now near the top of her wanted list.
  • John Sheridan has made sure to secure his nuclear arsenal after Khan attempted to hack into his entire system to target the House of Heroes.
  • Found plenty of allies in the House of Vengeance. Most of them were willing to help him get vengeance on Kirk... all except the God of Revenge himself. The Count pleaded with Khan not to let revenge destroy him just as it destroyed his mortal life. Tokiya Mikagami, but it was drowned out by Ren Hakuryuu's encouraging words. Thus Khan's plan of revenge continues unabated.
  • Has a terrifying reputation. In the past, he managed to rule much of earth during the late 20th century. In both timelines, he's proven to be a genius-level intellect and strong enough to defeat any regular human in a fight. He even managed to cause the death of Spock in the original timeline and Kirk in the reboot. Cosmos won't take him lightly. Barbatos Goetia coincidentally nodded in approval.
  • Thrawn is a huge fan of his works, impressed with his tactics despite living in an earlier time period. He lamented that his inexperience in space combat cost him his life. He invited Khan to his temple to get him up to speed.
  • Great lengths were made to make sure that Khan and Tarquin never meet with each other in the Pantheon. A duo of those two's calibur could wreck havoc on the GUAG. After some initial success, the two stated they have met 35 days ago. All of those days were just to exhaust their resources.
  • It was inevitable that Khan met his namesake and the one who gave him his godhood in the first place. It was the Mongol ruler that picked him out of various other people named after him to become his disciple. The Star Trek Khan respects the man as a result. He also took a few manuscripts Temujin wrote in his mortal life.
  • Doctor Strange did not like his approval as did most good deities, but he did see a unique opportunity. His Avatar played Khan in the rebooted era and it had mixed opinions. Strange knew that mocking Khan in his avatar would piss him off, and thus cause him to make mistakes.
    • While Holmes is above mocking Khan of Cumberbatch's performance, he saw another advantage. Namely to use it as a disguise to infiltrate the GUAE. A time may come when Khan is forced to stop using that avatar as cover.
  • Has said to have come straight out of the temple of Sauron. The Evil Overlord was proud of Khan's achievements in the 20th century, wishing he had succeeded in killing Kirk. But being a deity helps things out, giving him more power to help out Khan.
  • Has managed to form an alliance with Shogo Makishima of all people. The white haired villain does not trust that Khan won't create a Totalitarian Utilitarian but did admire Khan's desire to create a better society. With that said, it may be only a matter of time before this alliance collapses.
  • Unlike most villains, Khan has not berated Mr. Freeze for fulling embracing villainy. He only wishes that he could use that sadness to get revenge on the company that cut his funding.

    Shining Armor 
Shining Armor, God of "Shine" Names Pertaining to Benevolence (Twilight's B.B.B.F.F. (Big Brother Best Friend Forever), Captain of the Royal Guard, Prince Shining Armor)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shining_armor_vector_6724.png
  • Speaking of youth, it is said that the two meet and fell in love with each other during high-school (?). Since it was years ago and Canterlot was all 80's at the time, those who fell in love during that decade/style sent their regards.
  • The dorkiness in him despite being a knight found him a companion in Spiderman, who is also a hero and massive dork.
  • As a knight and the Captain of the Guard, he was practically the leader of what is considered the entire military force in Equestria, protecting his kingdom and family. Even after becoming regent ruler of the Crystal Empire, the only thing that changed was who he was training. He's also considered joining the GUAG Sacred Knights to find good allies.
  • He would not stand evil brothers who act cruel toward their own siblings, especially those that would dare try to harm Twilight Sparkle.
    • Though Shining Armor sometimes make fun of Axel because of his Butt-Monkey status, he admits that he like his protective of children and his siblings and willing to protect them at all cost, like what he would do with his sister.
  • Has a terrible case of motion sickness, and constantly has to fight it when on an airborne vessel. Thankfully for him, there are ways to curb it in the Pantheon, such as motion sickness pills.
  • While he agrees with Cadance's reasons for her contempt/rivalry for/with Kyu Sugardust, he doesn't share the same opinions as her and prefers to stay out of whatever fights they get into. The fact that the love fairy blessed their marriage helps a bit.
  • Apparently, his rock performance to woo Cadance was what got Vinyl Scratch her cutie mark when she was fascinated by the music.
  • The House of Sports joked about making "wife-tossing" an official sport when Shining Armor threw Cadance like a javelin in the Crystal Empire to swipe Spike and the Crystal Heart from King Sombra's reach. Jokingly, Bob Parr agrees with the assessment.
  • Domon is impressed in how he and Princess Cadance defeated Chrysalis and the that it resembled that Sekiha Love Love Tenkyoken. Both he and Cadance actually tried to imitate this act once or twice.
  • There are rumors of Shining Armor having a child not through Cadance but through Queen Chrysalis, during his Mind Control. Not only were the rumors false and demonizing (especially since that would make him victim of rape by deceit), but also aggravates him whenever this is brought up. Even more frustrating since he and Cadance now have a foal by the name of Flurry Heart.
  • Humorously, some suggest that Shining Armor was used for the voice tester for Megaman.EXE. The latter is confused of why the House of Technology wanted to use him as the basis of his voice.
    • On top of similar-voice related reasons, their shared tenures as Captain of the Guard before moving on to greater duties (emperor regent and Toa respectively) is what got him on amicable terms with Jaller. He sometimes even gets into joint missions with the rest of the Toa Mahri.
  • When asked where he was during the Storm King's attack on Canterlot, he doesn't have a ready reply save that he was handling duties in the Crystal Empire and caring for Flurry Heart. After he heard what happened, he berated himself for not being there (where he at least could've barred the Storm King's troops long enough for the guards to get in formation ("Why weren't they present at all during that?" he also asked) and for the populace to evacuate), and Cadance assured him that it's not his fault and that he probably wouldn't have made a difference given the Storm King's forces and Tempest Shadow's Obsidian Orbs. And given that the Storm King was after four alicorn princesses, it was a good thing Flurry Heart wasn't at Canterlot.

  • Enemies: Dracula, Alexander Anderson, Facehuggers, B. B. Hood
  • Observed by: Buffy, Willow, Xander
  • Possible Mentor to: Jubilation Lee/Jubilee
  • Pities: Kitana
  • No one knows of her original name... or if she even has one. The fact of the matter is, Vampirella has had so many origins, it's difficult to figure out which one is true. Quite possibly one of the first creations to produce such a skimpy outfit from her debut, Vampirella already had a sizable fanbase at her disposal. It was only a matter of time before she had enough to ascend into the Pantheon.
  • Was one of Brunestud's most loyal servents, she was among the first to serve the friendly vampire. Vampirella also happens to be a fan of her cooking... ingredients aside.
  • All vampires have to be wary of the wrath of Alexander Anderson, a vampire hunter that can even give Alucard pause. Vampirella is no different in that regard, preferring to avoid him at all costs.
  • The GUAE hired another hunter to take down the good-aligned vampire. B. B. Hood gladly accepted the challenge, knowing how to deal with her kind: with a bullet to the heart.
  • If Vampirella can cause most males to gawk over her figure, than Demetri is the female equivalent. There has been many heated arguments who has the greater effect... as well as what would have to her outfit if the Vampire Sex God hit her with the Midnight Bliss.
  • One of her most common origin stories is her devotion to ridding the world of evil vampires, led by Dracula. While not exactly the same one she remembers, they both share the same scorn for each other.
  • She had some bit of experience with Xenomorphs in a crossover. She's at least grateful that only the facehuggers are in the Pantheon, not their older brethren.
  • Was interested in Marceline's history with vampires in her world. After listening to her story, the two sung the rest of the night away. They promised to have each others' backs in future encounters.
  • May well be one of Mai Shiranui's biggest rivals in regards to her title. What makes it even more concerning is the similarities to their outfits.
  • Ash Williams can add Vampirella to the various deities he has encountered during his adventures. While the two were initially hostile to each other, they managed to work out their differences to defeat the Deadites in the area.
  • She has also teamed up with Catwoman, who helped her track down a shapeshifting thief. Unlike most heroes, Vampirella has no qualms teaming up with the thief. She does hope that Catwoman is able to turn a new leaf.
  • Was sad to see the fate of Kitana after the 25 year prophecy, especially her current Face–Heel Turn. They could have gone swimmingly, sharing an avatar once.
  • While Gabriel Belmont is her current mentor, Jubilee is contemplating whether to add Vampirella to the list. Amusingly, they bonded by making fun of their outfits. Jubes sees her as a less strict companion to Gabriel.
  • Has tried to distance himself from the Simpsons family after Marge accused one of her followers of trying to steal Homer from her. Vampirella pointed out that Booberella herself reminds her of her rival Elvira.
  • The Scoobies have taken note of the latest vampire to ascend and have stated they will take keep an eye on her. While Vampirella has stated she has good intentions, Xander has a difficult time believing her as he does with all vampires deities. It doesn't help that she looks like someone who would seduce and kidnap him... just like many of his suitors.
  • Has recently tried to respond to complaints to her skimpy outfit by donning a new look. She only seldomly wears this as her outfit is just too popular to ever replace.
  • Heard of the interesting vampire wrestling pair in the House of Ambiguity and went to investigate at the same time as the Cutie Mark Crusaders came for a play date. What happened next involved Luna Vachon absolutely pissed off with Vampirella trying to seduce her ex-hsuband while the Crusaders were absolutely confused as to what was going on and the two going at it, with Luna Vachon going as far as to hurl the Crusaders like they were cannonballs at Vampirella until Ralph had to come in and politely ask Vampirella to leave. Vampirella agreed, but not before kissing Gangrel in front of everybody. Gangrel was absolutely confused, Luna was absolutely furious, and the Crusaders have no idea what to think of it.
    • Sometime later she did return, moreso because she was curious as to why two vampires would like a trio of candy-colored ponies with shields on their flanks. The Crusaders were tasked to collect some foodstuffs as Gangrel and Luna Vachon explained how the Crusaders grew so close to their hearts and how the Crusaders had to go through the trials of Limbo. Sometime later, after the Crusaders returned with the food, Vampirella has became good friends with the vampire wrestlers and decided to keep an eye on the Crusaders should the wrestlers be busy at the PWF. Good thing too since the three are about to return to Limbo soon...

Rose, Goddess of Tragedies Surrounding The Name 'Rose' (Dark Dragoon, Black Monster)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lod_rose_2708.jpg
  • Lesser Goddess (Intermediate Goddess as a Dragoon, Greater Goddess as the Black Monster)
  • Symbol: The Dark Dragon Spirit Stone
  • Theme Song: Twilight of Rose
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good (Same as the Black Monster, except the world saw it as Chaotic Evil)
  • Portfolio: Wandering Female Fighter, Good Darkness User, Bad Powers, Good People, Shut-Down Emotions Due To Trauma, Not Even Smiling, The Tragedy Of Rose, Getting Emotionally Better Over Time, Dragoon Form, Actually Living Since Ancient Ages, Not Enjoying Immortality, The Necessity Of Being The Black Monster, Hated By Many For Doing The Good Thing
  • Domain: Naming, Heroism, Combat, Darkness
  • Allies: Aki Izayoi, Jackie Ecstacado, Midna, Cecil Harvey, Ragna the Bloodedge, Zeratul, Ivy Valentine, Zero
  • Enemies: YHVH, Chernabog, Kefka Palazzo
  • Somewhere throughout the Pantheon realms, there was once a realm ruled by the deity called Soa, whose plan is to give birth to 108 species before rendering everyone extinct in his world before he remade it. Unfortunately that plan came to halt when a new generation of his creation, Dragoons, destroyed the 108th's species, one of them being from an old generation, the Dark Dragoon called Rose...
    • ... Who, after losing every of her friends and learning about the plan about the world extinction on the 108th's species and hearing its 'prophecy' that every 108 years, a birth of the Moon Child would herald a blessing by the species' birth and wiped the world in a clean state, decided to take immortality, killing anyone in her way as long as any Moon Children gets killed and the world didn't need to restart, to the point the people there feared her and she was referred as the Black Monster, a mythical demon of evil. These years took toll on Rose that she became a cynical woman who never smiles, bottom line, her name signifies that her life is tragically shit.
    • On learning this, the Pantheon took up the matters to ascend Rose to the Pantheon, who was at that time being reincarnated to a pigeon, restored her into her humanoid form. Aki Izayoi willingly lent her other portfolio as she also felt it's more fitting on Rose and enables her to get help from the Pantheon to locate Soa... and then obliterate him for his uncaring genocidal 'plans' before he could afflict it to another world.
  • Over time staying at the Pantheon, Rose has been actually doing pretty good, as most of the good people in the Pantheon didn't care about her status as the Black Monster, and considered her doing the right thing for it. She still doesn't smile, since while the ascension was good, she kind of missed her fellow Dragoons.
  • Rose's power over darkness is not to be trifled with. Still, some people wondered why she picked unfortunate places or name-spelling for unleashing her attacks. For instance, unleashing dark 'nuggets' from what would've been her... crotch? Asstral Drain? One may wonder that Rose has something against toilets in general.
  • Since her reputation as the heroic Black Monster precede her, she's popular amongst people who uses darkness but also good people in general. Conversely, she's very against the anathema of that kind, those using light but are malicious.
    • People also seemed to kind of like it when she's spotted sharing a table with Ragna the Bloodedge, but she has made it clear that there's nothing going on between them. Rose respects Ragna's desire to not have romantic pursuits, and besides, she's still loyal to her lover Zieg.

    Fred Flintstone 
Fred Flintstone, God of Persistent Themes (Twinkle-toes, Grand Dad, Jake Steel)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flintstone.png
Fred: Yabba Dabba Doo!
  • He and his family all made their way to their new temple. Fred was the last one to enter... only to find out that his family had already locked him out. Cue his other most famous Catchphrase.
Fred: Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiilmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
  • His entry into the Pantheon was a momentous occasion to the various father gods. Many see him as the inspiration of all other dads, especially Homer Simpson.
  • One of his plans involved going into the video game making business. As the market appeared to be massive, he thought he could get a sizable chunk of it. The reception was... not so pleasant. Mario himself sued him for plagiarism and ended that scheme on the spot.
    • Not deterred by his initial failure, he worked together with Barney to make a less plagiarized game. They successfully created not one, but two games. Unfortunately, a miscommunication with Barney led to the vast majority of the later shipped to Harry Dresden's temple. The walking technobane made short work of games, making them among the rarest NES games in existence.
  • After that failed foray, he found much better luck in the House of Commerce. There he's been involved in various commercials from cereal to vitamins and even cigarettes. He got a bit of flack from the last one from several environmentally friendly gods.
  • Sometimes spends his time in the House of Music, mostly to listen to Weird Al who made a song for his ascension.
    • On one of his visits, he met the music group known as SiIvaGunner, who took his theme song and put it in many of "his" high quality rips, giving Fred a greater amount of fame. Fred is grateful for this.
  • One time when he was about to head out, he was tackled by an eager reptile. Fred initially thought it was his pet Dino. Instead, it was Mario's companion Yoshi. The mount has been much more friendly towards him than his master and offers a ride whenever the caveman needs a lift. Fred eventually grew to accepting his company, licking and all.
  • No other god is more pissed with his ascension than Indominus Rex. The genetically created dinosaur was infuriated to see Fred using animals as nothing more than work animals. It was quick to list Fred on the top gods to devour.
  • Speaking of genetically created dinosaurs, Fred came into trouble with another one. When he tried to pet Riptor, God of Raptors, he nearly lost his hand in the process. No one knows what set the raptor off. All that is known is that now Fred's temple has to ward off Velociraptors every now and then.
  • Not all dinosaur deities despised him. Littlefoot was quick to ally with the caveman, citing how his world can regard dinosaurs as pets.
  • As for the great T-Rex of the Pantheon herself, she only reacts to Fred as she would to any human: a potential meal if possible and a possible ally if need be. There are far worse humans to snack on in the Pantheon after all.
  • Much to his disappointment, there has yet to be a God of Bowling. As a talented bowler himself, he seeks out the best competition whenever he visits the House of Sports.
  • Do not under any circumstances mention any form of gambling to him. That is a sure-fire way of squandering all of his money. Tsundere and Marge for their part have made great strides to curbing their gambling habits in his presence, not wanting another soul to fall under their influence.
  • There's at least one human god that doesn't appreciate his ascension; the Nostalgic Critic was quick to criticize his ascension, believing his ridiculous use of rock puns should put him at least in The Fallen if not worse. That only caused his ally deities to rally behind him, citing how his show serves as the background of various other adult cartoons to this day. Fred swears to bash his skull in the next time the two meet for defaming him.
  • Was not too fond of what happened to him when that idiot Billy unfroze him in the present and again in the future only for his brains to be eaten by aliens. He's decided to put a restraining order on the God of Negative Intelligence for his own safety.
  • Many gods were impressed that Fred and Barney managed to not only take Santa's place, but give presents to children all over the world. Saint North rewarded the two for their help, giving their children lots of presents each Christmas.
  • His relationship with Barney has been compared with that of Mike and Sulley. Sure they have their disagreemets, but the two do care for each other. It helps that Fred and Sully shared the same actor.
  • He doesn't like to be reminded about that time he participated in a genocide masqueraded as a war of self-defense before the founding of Bedrock. It was a less than enjoyable part of his life, to say the least.
  • Please, don't question his relationship with Barney, double if you decide to joke about Fred's theme mentioning that "we Have a Gay Old Time". He's clobbered people for much less!

    Plusle and Minun 
Plusle and Minun, Co-Gods Of Opposites Theme Naming (The Cheering Pokémon (both), Prasle (Plusle, of course))

  • Moves
    • Both: Helping Hand

    • Z-Move: Gigavolt Havoc

  • Followers: Shiramine Ayaka and Kurosawa Yurine, Princesses Dawn and Eve, Kath Day and Kel Knight, Jeego and Tengo, Scott Winters and Julie Summers
  • Allies: Pikachu, Ash Ketchum, Mrs. Brisby, Chip and Dale, Lunick and Solana, Pyrrha Nikos, Garnet, Kim Possible, Miu, Claire Bennet, Juliet Starling, Buffy Summers, Son Goten and Trunks, Android 17 and 18
  • On good terms with: The House of Friendship
  • Enemies: All Pokemon villians, The Corpus
  • Opposes: The house Earth & Rock and those with ground powers, the House of Hatred, Hansel and Gretel
  • Conflicting Opinion: Deoxys, Rayquaza
  • Slightly Annoyed With: Rena Ryuugu
  • One day, these two rodents appear wandering around the Pantheon, cheering on anybody that they wanted to. It was later found out the two have ascended to share the title of Opposites Theme Naming. The duo are noticeable for being the first "Pikaclones" to join the Pantheon, in that the two have electrical sacks on their cheeks and look alike to Pikachu. Thanks to their abilities of Plus and Minus, their Sp Atk increases with a Pokemon of the other ability.
  • It was considered appropriate that the two would get to be partners with two deities that also share a title. Considering the two share similar color schemes and work well in double battles, the two little Pokemon decided to become the partners of the twins Lua & Luca. The two are now seen cheering whenever the twins (or anybody else on team 5D's) are dueling.
  • As there are very few special-oriented moves they can learn Plusle and Minum are easily frustrated by Ground types, even more than most Electric type Pokemon. As such, they steer clear of the House of Earth and Rock. More seriously, they don't want anything to do with the Corpus due to the fear of being weaponized by them. The two get along with Chip and Dale, being another friendly pair of rodents.
  • While Pikachu is the Mouse Pokemon, Plusle and Minum resemble actual mice more. Fortunately for them no-one in the House of Felines treats them like the meal they often treat rodents. The two are friendly with Mrs Brisby since she's another kind mouse
  • Rena had her usual reaction when she first saw the two. When she caught both of them, they started to struggle and started to static. Ash tried to warn her that running after them and rubbing their cheeks so hard distress them, but it was too late and she got a case of "Diamond Dandruff".
  • While they aren't their partners, Plusle and Minun around Lunick and Solana. This is due to the fact another pair of the two were the rangers' partners. Also, the two don't really know what to think about Deoxys and Rayquaza. Considering as pass interaction with another pair of Plusle and Minun, even if the two did befriend them in the end.
  • Considering both of them are the Cheering Pokemon, they're both good friends with the cheerleaders in the Pantheon and could be considered the "mascots" of the group. Among them are Kim Possible, Buffy Summeras, Miu and Claire Bennett. The Pokemon don't have many enemies because they're naturally cheerful and friendly beings.
    • Though neutral-aligned, they tend never to cheer on evil gods. Mainly due to the rule almost all Pokemon follow "there are no bad Pokemon, only bad trainers".
  • The Cheering Pokemon don't like the House of Hatred on principle; their abilities and twin status makes them pro-friendship and pro-companionship by default. And on principle, this means that they naturally associate with the House of Friendship, and cheer those who defend friendship as a whole. They're interested in Goten and Trunks' bond, and wonder if they could perform a Fusion Dance and become even more powerful than together.
  • Not literal twins, but they understand the bond of those within the House of Twins. The bond and personality of Hansel and Gretel, however, is pretty sick and twisted for their tastes. They were spooked by the Bad Future versions of Android 17 and 18, however the two present versions in the pantheon proved far more moral and compassionate, so the four came to like each other.
