    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 enmity 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.

    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 caliber 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.

    Vampirella 
Vampirella, Goddess of Ladies with -ella suffixes
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vampirella.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her iconic outfit
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Domains: Charm, Good, Vampire
  • Portfolio: Action Girl, Boobs of Steel, Dark Is Not Evil, Friendly Neighborhood Vampire, Horror Hunger, Lady in Red, Most Common Superpower, Progressively Prettier, Statuesque Stunner, Stripperiffic, Vampires Are Rich, Vampires Are Sex Gods
  • Followers: Goombella, Wonderella, Booberella, Stripperella
  • Allies: Arcueid Brunestud, Adrian Fahrenheight Ţepeş/Alucard, Eric Brooks/Blade, Marceline the Vampire Queen, Ash Williams, Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Seras Victoria, Grimsley of the Unova Elite Four, Gasper Vladi, Gangrel and Luna Vachon, Barbarella
  • Rivals: Demitri Maximoff, Mai Shiranui, Marge Simpson
  • 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 servants, 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-husband 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...

  • Dr. Neo Periwinkle Cortex is an ambitious Mad Scientist out for world domination. and the arch-enemy of Crash Bandicoot. Initially planning to mutate and brainwash a batch of animals to use to take over the world out of revenge for being mistreated, one of his most promising creations, Crash, ended up escaping, who then preceded to completely wreck both Cortex's plan and his castle. Recovering from that defeat, he quickly changed plans to collecting enough Power Crystals to power a mind control device to hypnotize and enslave the world with, only to once again be stopped by Crash when he attempted to dupe him into collecting the crystals for him. Ever since then, the doctor has made it his life's goal of finally eliminating that infernal bandicoot so that he can conquer unopposed, his boss Uka Uka eventually getting involved and soon adopts the same mindset. While Cortex is generally bumbling and unlucky, with his plans often ending in humiliating defeat for him, his formidable skills in an actual fight, alongside the occasionally well made scheme, has kept him a threat to the bandicoots throughout their entire lives.
  • This longtime grudge extended to the Pantheon, where he had ascended for almost as along as Crash had been there. Initially, it was just the two of them, where Cortex allied himself with the resident mad doctors of the realm to combat his fuzzy nemesis, while Crash did the same thing. Overtime, however, more of their allies and enemies started joining them, either by Crash or Cortex ascending them to help fight each other, or they just happened to come across the Pantheon by chance. More importantly, the court started realizing that Cortex's initial title, They Called Me Mad!, didn't quite fit anymore: sure, it was initially his core motivation to get back at those who called him mad, but overtime he became consumed with both taking out Crash and committing evil for evils sake, leaving his motivation a mere footnote afterwards. Cortex was fully aware of this, and so proposed he'd take Brain Themed Names since his own name is a pun on the cerebral cortex and ended up inspiring similarly Punny Names for the other villains (or as he called it, "hogging my style"). The court agreed to the change, and Cortex resumed his previous role otherwise uninterrupted.
  • His relationship with some of his allies is... strained, to say the least. The most notable would be his "boss" Uka-Uka, a horrendous boss that regularly belittles and abuses the poor doctor for his many failures and while Cortex was at first merely scared of him, he soon grew to hate him and attempted a few times to overthrow him, something that Uka Uka is fully aware of and often also tries to replace him. It's not a stretch to say that the only reason that they haven't killed each other yet is because they're each others best shot at world domination. He's barley any more friendly with his former assistant Dr. Nitrous Brio, mostly for the time he sabotaged his hypnotization plot out of revenge for being mistreated. It is shown that they work together far better than with Uka Uka, but don't be surprised if they start subtly taking jabs at each other. Out of all of his "allies", however, he straight up despises N. Tropy for constantly replacing him and hijacking his plans, with one of his schemes having him nearly reset the universe and take Cortex with it, forcing Cortex to team up with the Bandicoots to stop him. Ever since that scheme, he's been more than happy to sabotage any plan Tropy comes up with just to spite him, a sentiment that Tropy is all too eager to share.
  • Seeing as he's an Evil Genius that, on a good day, can be honestly pretty chummy with those he likes (Emphasis on a good day, he can be pretty cranky and rude on a bad one), he's naturally good friends with his fellow pantheon Mad Scientists, Doctors Eggman, Wily and Nefarious. All three of them find his expertise in mind control and mutating animals, with him often combining both to create loyal minions to do his dirty work, fairly useful in their schemes, and Cortex just finds the fact they aren't as failure prone or treacherous as his other allies a nice change of pace. They are aware of Cortex's bumbling streak and how unlucky the guy could be, but he otherwise proves himself to at least be competent at what he does, and hey, it's not like they had it much better sometimes. All four can usually be seen together at a pub, scheming to take out their enemies, sharing and exchanging their latest plans, or just generally hanging out in their free time. Unfortunately, he also ended up making enemies with their respective nemesis's, specifically Sonic, Ratchet and Clank, and Mega Man, who have each taken turns fighting the doctor. Usually, they tend to not take him as seriously as the other villains, and while that usually just pisses Cortex off, there are a few occasions where he showed them that he could be a legitimate threat, though they're often followed up by humiliating defeat as usual.
  • If there's one enemy from an alternant universe that he finds himself fighting most often, it's Spyro the Dragon. The story goes that one day, the maniacal Rynoc wizard Ripto teamed up with Cortex to take out their respective enemies, doing so by disguising their minions as Crash and Spyro. By doing so, they'll trick them into fighting and destroying each other, leaving the diabolical duo free to conquer both worlds unopposed. Unfortunately, the heroes quickly caught on to their plan and teamed up to take them out, forcing Ripto and Cortex to use their combined armies to try and kill them, an attempt that, needless to say, ended miserably. Even worse, the whole incident ended with Crash and Spyro becoming friends, with the purple dragon more than happy to help Crash roast Cortex's behind. If nothing else, it also resulted in Rypto becoming a close ally, and the two will gladly team up if the situation calls for it, even barring the occasional bickering that inevitably comes with pairing two egomaniacs up. While he was glad to see that Ripto was also in the pantheon alongside a few other villains from his world, his pride was immediately replaced by dismay as he learned that not only had Spyro had ascended, but so did a majority of his allies as well, all of whom will take a shot at the doctor if given the chance. Anytime he's fought Spyro, he's forced to team up with Ripto and company just to even the playing field.
  • Sometimes, Cortex is forced to team up with the bandicoots to take out a bigger threat, usually just to save his own hide. Usually, he ends up double crossing the bandicoots and returns to his usual evil ways afterwards. However, one particular occasion, he ended up joining the Skylanders of all people alongside Crash after an incident involving Fake Crash ended with them getting involved, even becoming a Sensei for training the new Imaginators. While his time as a Skylander made it abundantly clear that he was gonna return to his evil ways once he's done with them, he ended up enjoying his time with them thanks to being treated with a surprising amount of respect from the team, who're no strangers to allowing villains joining as long as they behave themselves. It was reported that he even left on oddly amicable terms, and while he now faces them as enemies in the Pantheon, he treats them with much more respect than he does with his other enemies. Plus, it actually ended up discovering another villain who joined the Skylanders temporally: Bowser, the King of Koopas himself, who ended up stranded in Skylands alongside Donkey Kong and joined the Skylanders after he was essentially bribed with a new car. The two ended up bonding over their time doing good and can be seen teaming up to face the army.
    • The same cannot be said, however, for their arch-nemesis Kaos, who he ended up fighting during his time on the team. It's less that he finds him too evil for his tastes (he actually thinks he's rather tame), it's just that he finds him an insufferable moron who underbakes his plans and only occasionally gets lucky with his schemes. Unfortunately, since he's against the Skylanders, he's often forced to team up with the sorcerer in an effort to combat them. For the record, Kaos also dislikes Cortex: putting aside the whole "he was once a member of my most hated enemies" thing, he just finds his overbearing ego and embarrassing screwups annoying (Yes, the irony is completely lost on him). They're willing to at least try to work together, but it'll be full of bickering and insults towards each other.
  • Most gods think that his origins started at the Academy of Evil, an evil boarding school that he grew up in where he was taught to do evil, and where he carried out his first experiment with his pet parrots. What few gods actually know is that it went further than that: he was first raised in a circus and belonged to a family of performers, which tragically came to an end when a "freak" explosion seemingly killed everyone but Cortex, who was then taken in by the Academy to be raised as the evil scientist we all know today. Cortex does not have fond memories of being a carnie and generally keeps the fact to himself, though that hasn't stopped some from finding out about this, to his dismay (Hey, we never said he was good at hiding it). One of these gods was Razputin Aquato, another performer and junior Psychonaut, who was once sent out to stop the mad doctor from carrying out one of his mass brainwashing schemes and had run astray of his poorly hidden diary. When Cortex found out, he attempted to resonate with him and paint himself as a Tragic Villain, only to be immediately shot down by Raz, who was part of a slightly embarrassing but otherwise loving family of performers and thinks Cortex is giving people like him a bad name. Cue ass whooping by Raz. The fact that, as Raz deduced, it was very likely Cortex himself who caused the explosion that killed his own family did not help matters at all.
  • His biggest regret by far is the fact that, by not testing the Cortex Vortex before using it, he was responsible for the creation of Crash Bandicoot, who proceeded to be the biggest factor behind his defeats. He was responsible for Coco and Crunch as well, with Coco undergoing tests around the same time as her brother only to end up escaping through a hatch, and Crunch was a successfully hypnotized weapon used against Crash that ended up snapping out of it and escaping alongside the two. His regret was so great, that one of his closest victories involved him going back in time just to stop himself from experimenting on him, only to end up being the reason why the CV rejected Crash in the first place. It's this very fact that led him to sincerely bond with Mojo Jojo, a supervillain monkey and sworn nemesis of the Powerpuff Girls, who eventually discovered that it was his recklessness as Professor Utonium's lab monkey that ended up creating the girls, a fact that drove him completely bonkers when he found out. He also thought that befriending Ultron, a robot villain who was created by renowned hero Ant-Man, would be a fun form of irony considering his origins, only to nope the hell out of there when he realized that the guy was an immoral nutjob that would absolutely kill him the first chance he got. Either way, some villains have come to see Cortex as a fine example of how villains end up creating their worst enemies and how badly that could go.
  • If there's one thing that he could match Crash in regarding skills, it's kart racing of all things. As it turns out, Crash and his friends have found themselves racing each other in karts a few times, with Cortex and his minions joining in during all of them, usually just so he can try to show up Crash. It's generally one of the few times where he isn't trying to kill the bandicoots, though he'll usually still be opposed to them: He participated in the "Survival of the Fastest" Tournament to save both the earth and his own hide, was forced to compete in Emperor Velo's tournament, and joined the search for Von Clutch's power gems so that he could claim Motorworld for himself. If anyone's wondering about his skills, he's roughly the same as Crash: A Jack-of-All-Stats who's balanced across the board, making up for not particularly specializing in anything by being good at all three stats. His habit of racing carried over to the Pantheon, where he frequently challenges Crash to races when he's in a good mood, though some sources say he does it so that he has an excuse to throw dangerous weaponry at him and not get reprimanded for it for once. One time he even found himself invited to a Mario Kart tournament consisting of the Pantheon's residents alongside Crash, though he ultimately rejected it on the basis that he was working on something at the time (Yes, another scheme to hypnotize the pantheon, why'd you ask?)
  • Alongside his Evilutionary Biologist gimmick, he's also fond of hypnotizing others to do his bidding, most often his very creations so that they have less of a chance of turning on him, most prominently shown when he created and brainwashed an entire army of brutish "titans" during his stay on Whumpa Island using magical Mojo. He knew that the Pantheon would be big enough that there had to be someone that could help him with his hypnosis projects, and sure enough he ended up encountering Hugh Bliss, the leader of a cult that was secretly behind a conspiracy involving mass hypnotism, cumulating in him attempting to, and briefly succeeding at, brainwash the world to be as happy as him so that he can feed off of their happiness. After Cortex got used to how bizarre the sentient mass of bacteria was, he realized that he was pretty gung-ho about helping Cortex as long as he got to feed on some happiness, supplying the doctor with some items that'll secretly hypnotize the victim. He also managed to convince the hypnotic snake Kaa to help him in exchange for some food, but he found Kaa to be much trickier to work with: while one version is fairly good at delivering victims to the doctor, another one was far more failure prone and bumbling, and one version flat out wanted nothing to do with Cortex and his schemes, to his frustration. He'll still hire the snake as he's good at what he does, he has to make sure he's talking to the right one first before acting.

  • 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 disagreements, 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!

  • The Kitauji High School Concert Band Club was once an esteemed and respected school band specializing in playing classical music and were frequent competitors for the national competitions that were held each year. However, in recent years, the club's performance started to dwindle in quality and reputation and they were unable to be qualified for a spot in the nationals, much to the dismay and anguish of a music student prodigy named Reina Kousaka, who excelled in the trumpet. Reina's Childhood Friend and a longtime euphonium player, Kumiko Oumae, volunteers to join the band, alongside fellow friends and music aspirers, Hazuki Katou and Sapphire "Midori" Kawashima who picked up to play the tuba and contrabass respectively, though they end up in an intense community against fellow students on who gets to win a specific spot to allow them to represent the band and their roles in the nationals. Reina also joins along, though remains aloof and distant from everyone else, despite Kumiko's failed attempts to reach out to her at first. Through an intense struggle in honing and improving their musicianship, Kumiko, Reina, Hazuki, and Midori were able to succeed in getting the role to play their specific instruments for the band club. Their performance paid off and the Kitauji band were able to qualify for the nationals. With the third-year students having to depart from the band upon graduation soon, new students joined the fray and the band struggled to practice and train for their nationals competition whilst also dealing with their personal struggles, namely Kumiko and Reina's feelings for one another. Ultimately, the band ends up winning bronze in the nationals competition, and the Kitauji band celebrated the occasion with the graduation and departure of their third-year seniors, in addition to Kumiko gaining a sense of admiration for the band's vice-president, Asuka Tanaka. As a memento, Asuka presented Kumiko with a music piece her father wrote, titled "Sound! Euphonium".
  • The efforts of the Kitauji Club were notable enough that they received attention from another realm, unbeknownst to them as they felt that the band had a lot of potential and drive to be great musicians in their own right. Kumiko was simply taking free time in school conversing with Hazuki and Midori when she was given an invitation from a fellow band member about a message addressed to them and Reina. The three girls read the message to realize that they were to be granted a position in a place called the Trope Pantheons. Kumiko took to approaching Reina about it, only to find out that the latter had already read the message prior. Initially, the idea of being invited stressed Kumiko out as she was afraid that she may have to leave school to become a member of a new world, though Reina reassured her and explained that they'd still have a home here regardless, words which helped Kumiko to gain some confidence. The two of them, alongside Hazuki, Midori, and the rest of the band took to performing an opening ceremony in the House of Musicality to great success, helping the quartet to be welcomed to the Pantheon with strong enthusiasm.
  • Compared to other notable clubs and bands that started off from high school, especially Houkago Tea Time and μ's, the Kitauji Band stick out far more in the sense that their music and their instrumentals are more archaic and rooted to more traditional sets of performing. It is noted that physical training and self-taught coordination are a shared trait, but the band's genre means their musicality is a lot more complex and difficult to master. It's a major reason the competition for the Nationals is considered a high prestige, especially for Reina, who has made it more than clear that she puts her heart and soul into music.
  • Even with their differences, it doesn't stop the Kitauji Quartet from bonding with Houkago Tea Time and μ's, as aside from their music genres being very different, they do have their fair share of similarities, namely the core group's dedication to one another as companions and their determination when it comes to their dreams and desires. Despite their seemingly contrasting nature, Kumiko got along with Honoka Kosaka as they have a rather magnetic nature that allows them to keep their bandmates and friends together, which allows them to persevere in the first place, not to mention Honoka's energetic nature was something Kumiko and her core bandmates found really endearing. The same thing was also attributed to Yui Hirasawa, who often tries to break through Kumiko's caustic nature and allow her to dictate others in a better light. In a more standard sense, Reina became well-acquainted with Umi Sonoda as they related to each other easily with their headstrong nature and their insistency to be in top shape when it comes to performing music. Hazuki and Midori seem to find themselves really liking Ritsu Tanaka and Tsumugi Kotubuki respectively for sharing some personality traits, namely a headstrong nature and for being compassionate and willing to help out others in a time of need.
    • By association with μ's, the band also got to learn about and connect with a fellow Idol Pop band, Aqours, rather quickly. Surprisingly, both bands were similar in the sense that they were struggling with peer pressure and didn't really meet much success in their goal of being recognized and successful. Both bands did win, but Aqours failed to save their school from getting shut down (which was part of the reason why they enlisted to compete in the Love Live! competition) whereas the Kitauji Band only scored Bronze, which meant that they were still overshadowed by better bands and performances. Still, it did provide both bands with a memorable experience and journey that they will never forget and they seek to carry On with the talents that they learned from that time.
    • When it comes to the art of music itself, the Kitauji Quartet seems to relate most to Maki Nishikino and Riko Sakurauchi, as they happen to take the most influence from classical music compared to the other members of μ's and Aqours respectively. This helped both parties as Maki and Riko were invited to perform as special guests for some of the Kitauji Band's setlist in their tours. This made for a good opportunity for the main quartet and their friends to try striking up conversations with the two of them during breaks and free times, where they spoke about their experiences with music and getting into some zany situations. Regardless, it paid off with Maki and Riko appreciating their time and experience with the band.
  • Even if the Pantheon has proven to be a pretty good experience, no one in the band, either the Kitauji Quartet or the other members, has anything kind to say to Terrence Fletcher. It's one thing to be strict, but it's another to be physically, emotionally, and psychologically abusive to the point where you twist someone into solely seeking perfection and driving another student to suicide. Kumiko and Reina are upfront about telling Fletcher about what a terrible person he is and just a terrible teacher. Fletcher's response is to proclaim how the Kitauji Club are pathetic and worn down in their effort to play music and make it the Nationals, but his ridiculously negative attitude only further asserted Kumiko and Reina's perspective, in addition to the former taking steps to be more concise and complimentary in her remarks towards others.
    • The mention and thought of Fletcher also brings about Andrew Neiman, Fletcher's most prized student and a masterful drummer for Jazz Music. As mentioned before, Fletcher's abusive and toxic nature meant that Andrew went through a hellish experience to get to where he is, and even then, his outlook on life is warped, being content on dying young and fast, like Charlie Parker. The Kitauji Band took to greatly pitying Andrew for his circumstances and his story did present the band a realization that support and encouragement is a key to not only assuring one's success in skill and reputation but to also allow themselves to be happy and glad of their decisions and those who rooted for them, in addition to keeping up a healthy mindset. They do want to help Andrew, given that he's Fletcher's herald in the Pantheon, but given his growing selfish and dismissive demeanor, courtesy of Fletcher's influence, this is going to be no easy task.
  • Tom and Jerry are not normally associated with classical music, what with them being the biggest mascots of slapstick comedy. However, the cat-and-mouse duo actually has some history in playing classic music, with Tom even getting to perform in the prestigious Hollywood Bowl, though all those times ended in failure on Tom's part while Jerry got all the applauding and praise. The quartet found that information to be amusing. One incident ended up with Tom having a special guest role in performing with the Kitauji Band, and it turns out that he's a great performer. Still, there's the occasional nuisance with Jerry sabotaging the effort either because Tom harassed him in some way or Jerry just felt like it. Hazuki finds these events fun to look at, though Reina is less than impressed and is not afraid to get angry at Tom and Jerry if they ever end up putting a slip up in her performance. It seems to work as the two are now afraid of inciting Reina's wrath on the two.
    • They also took awareness of Sergay Stepanov, better known as the "Epic Sax Guy". Given how Reina is an exceptionally talented trumpet player herself and how the sax is pretty similar to the trumpet, Sergay took an intrigue towards the band, but mainly her, and makes a lot of effort in trying to immerse himself with them. Results are... complicated, considering the heavily boisterous nature of Sergay himself, to the point where he would interrupt practice sessions. All things considered, Sergay isn't a bad guy, just someone who's a little too enthusiastic for his own good and ends up annoying the bandmates for his sudden entry and randomly playing his sax. It's a small gag for Kumiko to reference how distracting and annoying Sergay can get, only for him to accidentally peep out from nowhere, much to Kumiko's embarrassment and having to reaffirm that she does see Sergay as a good saxophone player.
  • Aiming to be skilled classical players, the band was interested in Kousei Arima and Kaori Miyazono, considering that the two were also well-known for their ability to play elegantly, especially for Kousei's whose mastery in the piano lead to his title of "The Human Metronome". That said, there was more to Kousei and Kaori than just the fact they were musicians; both had a series of emotional turmoil that they went through, which culminated in Kaori's mortal death, which upset the Kitauji Band. The Quartet sympathized with the two, especially Kousei, as Kumiko, Reina, and Midori know the experience of training since childhood, but was shocked to learn of how Kousei had to deal with the fact that he suffered from low self-esteem following his mother's death and how he stopped playing piano up until he met Kaori for the first time. Hazuki gets along with Kaori pretty well thanks to their shared energetic nature and the two often plan on having fun and making the most out of their time in the Pantheon, with Kaori having a giggle at the fact that Hazuki affectionately calls her tuba "Tubacabra".
  • Like any other enthusiasts of Classical Music, the Kitauji Band heavily credits the ascended historical pioneers of the genre as major influences and are more than open to crediting them for each piece of music played that is by them. Some of them, like Beethoven, Mozart, and Wagner are welcoming of them trying to use their music to reach out to a wider audience and do wish for the best, though they would like to reprimand the fact that it's going to take a long amount of time and practice before the entire band would be considered eligible for working on a performance with them. The main quartet themselves don't stress on this information too much, already aware that with them only having won Bronze, there's still a long road ahead of them to hone their skills.
    • As with any other genre, there are cases with Classical Music being mixed in with different genres to present and create subgenres of sorts. In the case of a band named Epica, they combined it with Heavy Metal to showcase something known as Symphonic Metal. The Kitauji Band were impressed by what Epica had to showcase, combining two very contrasting genres, complete with aggressive guitar riffs and drum beats synching with symphonic notes and vocal orchestra, though they admit that aren't into the harder instrumentations. Regardless, Epica themselves appreciated the Kitauji Band's respect for them and the two groups have maintained a good relationship since. In a surprising fact, Heavy Metal music itself takes a lot of influence from Classical Music, something which the Kitauji Band found rather interesting due to how both genres sound aesthetically different, yet there persists a similarity in complexity and craftsmanship.
    • The band also received a measure of respect from Lex Luthor, CEO of LexCorp who has admitted to finding Classical Music to be his favorite sort of music genre. Furthermore, Lex also appreciates those who strive for hard work and commitment to create character and success for them, and that he sees the Kitauji Band in general as a good example of that, the fact that they play a mutually favorable form of music is what caught Lex's attention in the first place. As a measure of goodwill, Lex donated a series of refined instruments and tips for advertisement as his way of providing help and assistance. That said, Lex did this not out of altruism, but to ensure his prestigious reputation and charitable endeavors, which is a front for his true, insidious nature as a Supervillain are kept intact in the Pantheon and he helped the Kitauji Band mainly because them playing a genre he liked and that he felt entitled giving them a favor. That said, even with Lex providing them with new gear, the quartet is fine with what they have, especially Hazuki, who is more content with keeping Tubacabra, but nonetheless, respects Lex for his supposedly helpful nature.
  • Kumiko, Reina, and Midori are no strangers to romance, and their story about this subject is as awkward and complicated as it can be. One of the Concert Band members, Shuichi Tsukamoto, has a crush on Kumiko, however, it is Hazuki who is attracted to him, with Kumiko not even noticing Shuichi's romantic interests towards her. Unfortunately, it doesn't pay off for Hazuki, who doesn't take being unreciprocated well for a time and causing it to hamper her playing abilities for some time before rebounding and Kumiko would eventually respond and start dating with Shuichi, though they put their relationship on hold so that they could hone and improve their musicality during their second year in school.
    • Reina, on the other hand, has a crush on her high school teacher and Band Leader, Noboru Taki, which also went off unreciprocated as Taki instead saw Reina's attraction to him as platonic appreciation for his teaching, something with didn't sit well with Reina. This did catch the attention of a few individuals who've had a Teacher/Student Romance beforehand, namely Hanabi Yasuraoka, who had feelings for a teacher named Narumi Kanai, who instead fell for a literature teacher, Akane Minagawa. That would be complicated in a sense, except Akane was a sociopathic vamp who used her relationship with Narumi to torment Hanabi, though, in a surprising turn of events, Akane herself mellowed out and truly began to love Narumi, even getting married and having a child. It's here where Reina came to respect and empathize with Hanabi, considering the circumstances she went through and that it is best for her to work around on her best interests and what makes her happy. Hanabi was more than open to oblige.
      • Of course, Reina does not like Akane, even after the latter had mellowed out to become a less bad person. Reina takes caution towards interacting with her and she makes it blunt and clear that whoever Akane is doing, it'd better not hurt Hanabi or Narumi, though Akane herself has tried to be civil about this matter, trying to make sure that her relationship with Narumi isn't compromised and nor is the well-being of her child put into question. By extension, Reina's distaste for Akane also goes out to Mrs. Robinson, due to her own manipulations towards seducing a student for her own ends and not feeling ashamed of the matter. At the end of the day, while Reina is not prejudiced about students and teachers having a romantic thought about one another, given that she had one herself, she doesn't like those who manipulate this feeling for their own ends as Akane and Mrs. Robinson have demonstrated.
    • Kumiko and Reina have a very strong friendship. Or according to some in the House of Love and Affection, perhaps a little too strong, to the point where some speculate that these two would end up being a couple with one another rather than Kumiko and Reina staying with Shuichi and Taki respectively. Not helping matters is the amount of intimate and tender moments the two girls have with one another, alongside the fact that one can see a lot about themselves within another. It's made them a popular topic in that particular House, but Kumiko and Reina don't really have much thought about them and are sometimes oblivious about the fact that some people would rather have them hook up with each other. At the very least, they, alongside Hazuki and Midori, are well-respected by the House of Friendship and Camaraderie, where they're usually welcomed warmly.
  • Kumiko and Reina have an unusually shared quirk in that they would much rather prefer if they would rather be barefoot, even in public spaces, than be wearing footwear. In fact, it's a frequent occasion, whenever the two of them want to exclusively spend time together, though some were able to not just how much Kumiko and Reina take off their shoes and they'd happen to stumble across them, usually when they don't mean to. Thankfully, it's not really something embarrassing for the two girls, considering that they naturally feel more comfortable barefoot and that because of how much time they spend outdoors and standing up to play music, they often experience sour feet.
  • Compared to the usual leading members of a girl group in music, Kumiko sticks out mainly due to her personality and her demeanor towards others. She is nice and supportive, but while not a Jerkass, Kumiko is rather critical towards others and honestly expects herself and others to be better in their craft, a sentiment shared with Reina. She's also not exactly the best person when it comes to communicating with others and has a tendency of saying the worst things about someone impulsively, even when the person of focus is right beside her, much to Kumiko's dismay.
    • In spite of her profession and goals, Kumiko is not without having some good contacts outside of music. She was surprised to see herself getting along with Haruka Kotoura as the two of them were noted to not be very good in expressing thoughts and feelings towards others, though it was worse in Haruka's case as she revealed confiscated and private information of others without meaning to, which led to her getting bullied and ostracized by others. Kumiko was relieved to learn that Haruka has been dealing with her problems and has found some closure and happiness in overcoming many of her struggles.
    • Kumiko's tendency of being blunt about her feelings and generally being rather ineffectual about her speech led her to become acquainted with fellow deities with similar issues, such as Violet Evergarden, Rachel Roth, and Tomoko Kuroki, all of whom had to deal with expressing their thoughts in an appropriate manner. Though their circumstances regarding their communication difficulties differ as Violet was raised for war and had to readjust herself into a civil societal lifestyle upon its end and even then, she had to learn how to express feelings via becoming a typewriter, Rachel usually acts cold and aloof due to her insecurities of being the daughter of a demon lord, but does have a softer and caring side, which is difficult to express for her. Tomoko seems to be socially distant and awkward in general but actually desires to be appreciated and have friends. Regardless, Kumiko still feels as if they have something in common and gets along with them rather well, with herself still trying to better herself by not being accidentally dismissive.
  • Reina is easily among the most talented members of her band, but even so, she puts in a lot of standards for herself and towards others, much like Kumiko. Coincidentally enough, both face the same issue of not being good socially, though, in Reina's case, it's more that she is blunt and more open to expressing her true feelings towards someone, which doesn't exactly help with anyone's situation. Even so, she is a kind and considerate girl who is more than willing to help others. She is open to visiting fellow music players and trying to help them out in improving their playing skills, though, at the same time, many have tried to get Reina to better her communication skills.
    • Her perspective on trying to check up on her musical craft and expecting herself and her friends and peers caught the attraction of Diana Cavendish, who instead was a student learning magic from Luna Nova Academy. Like Reina with music, Diana was a prodigy in witchcraft, though the circumstances of her interests were rooted in family history, in addition to passion, whereas Reina saw Classical Music as something that she not only was really good at but also something that she had to take seriously, something which Diana herself could relate to as she wanted to preserve the legacy of her family's history with magic, which was why she acted strict and cold to her contemporaries. Needless to say, both look up to each other as relatable figures and developing a slight interest in each other's talents.
    • Diana also found herself having some similarities with Yusuke Kitagawa, a member of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts and an artist who is very stern about making sure his works are refined and well-done. That, and he's not exactly a very sociable man, mainly because he simply not good in communicating with others. Reina personally didn't mind this and the two have since tried to work together in improving their social communication. They were hence able to get along with one another, in addition to Reina and Yusuke finding some appreciation in each others' craft and their dedication to it as it represents one of the best sides of one another.
  • Unlike Kumiko and Reina, Hazuki seems to be more well-adjusted socially and is the most enthusiastic member of the quartet when it came to their thoughts in the Pantheon. That said, and much to her annoyance, she is the least respected member out of the core group, though it's not against her as a person, but rather because she is the least experienced member when it comes to music, given that she was a first-timer in that field during her first year and that she didn't make it in representing her band during the preliminary performances for the Nationals. This, and the fact that she didn't get to win Shuichi's affections has made Hazuki more inclined that she will be working hard in the future. Still, it's not going to stop her from being the Genki Girl that she normally is.
    • Like Reina and Diana getting to bond over with them being exceptionally talented in their interests and having a helpful and caring nature despite their cold and assertive attitude, a similar relationship brewed between Hazuki and Akko Kagari, who like Diana, was also a student in Luna Nova, albeit she started off by being clumsy and not having any magical proficiency, despite her enthusiasm in magic. With Hazuki and Akko being newbies when starting off their experiences, they found themselves to be quite relatable and wound up hanging out with one another and going out to a few events for their own fun. Hazuki is glad to see that Akko is beginning to grow more competent and confident in her use of magic, especially after learning of the circumstances behind her lack of magical talent, whereas Akko is sometimes eager to try out Tubacabra, with amusing results.
    • As mentioned above, Hazuki doesn't have the best experience in romance. Though as compensation, she ended up finding some common ground with Mugi Awaya and Noriko Kamomebata, two students who also had close ties with Hanabi, in the sense that Mugi was the boy she dated to make up for her inability to spend time with Narumi, though Mugi himself ended up genuinely loving Hanabi, whereas Noriko loved Mugi and saw Hanabi as a romantic rival, though she decided to move on from it and instead spend her thoughts on working on her own future endeavors. Hazuki felt empathetic for them and got along with them, with her encouraging Mugi to look out for Hanabi and for Noriko to make the most out of her goal. Another similar figure was Quasimodo, a well-meaning, but facially deformed man who fell in love with a Gypsy named Esmeralda, who instead fell for and married a knight named Phoebus. Even then, Quasimodo and Esmeralda saw each other as great friends and kept in contact with each other, which endeared Hazuki a lot. Of course, they related with similar romance circumstances and became friends, with Hazuki finding Quasimodo to be cute instead of what most people would think otherwise.
  • Midori is the most approachable member of the band; polite, sweet, and more than willing to support and help others when it's needed. She does have one major gripe for herself; she's not fond of her given first name, "Sapphire", and normally has to tell others to simply call her "Midori" as that's the name that she prefers first and foremost. Additionally, she has a rather... "unique" way of perceiving events and moments, which is in an idealized, romantic way of sorts.
    • With her preference of a different name, Midori came to be well-associated with Darkness and Phonon, both of whom also try to distance themselves from their real names for their own reasons. Midori and Darkness have a simple reason in that they simply find "Sapphire" and "Lalatina Dustiness Ford" to be embarrassing to mention and call out. With Phonon, it stems from the fact that she is a Chuunibyou and that she doesn't like to be reminded by the more mundane aspects of her life, not to mention she reacts to this rather poorly, so caution tends to be held in these sorts of situations. Even so, Midori respects the two of them and does the best she can to get along. At the very least, Midori wants to make sure Darkness doesn't mess up her musical instruments and she doesn't accidentally call Phonon "Yoshiko".
    • Midori's weird sense of her life outlook has been noted to not exactly be the best when it comes to advice, especially when it was tried on Hazuki when she tried to confess her feelings for Shuichi and that didn't go anywhere, much to her dismay, though Hazuki knew that Midori isn't to blame here. Oddly enough, this is how Midori got to be friends with Anna as she, too, was someone with a "romantic" outlook on life, which backfired horribly as demonstrated with Prince Hans. Still, with all their faults, Midori and Anna don't dwell on sulking on it and prefer to liven up and spend time happily, which allowed them to connect. Often times when they're together, Anna tries to sing along whenever Midori plays her contraband either alone or with her band. The results seem to be rather solid, much to their excitement.

  • 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.
