  • Wary of: The House of Vampires
  • After the Super Celestial Perpetua created the multiverse, she created the first inhabitants of that multiverse—her sons Alpheus (the World Forger), Mobius (the Anti-Monitor), and Mar Novu (the Over-Monitor)—to oversee the three realms of the multiverse, which were formed of the three basic forms of substance: dark matter, anti-matter, and positive matter. While Alpheus and Mobius were assigned to supervise the first two realms and were tasked with the function of creation and destruction, respectively, Mar Novu was to govern the last realm and was tasked with observing and protecting the created universes from cosmic disasters. When the Anti-Monitor awoke and began the Crisis on Infinite Earths, it was the Monitor who gathered various heroes and villain for the mother of all crossovers with the fate of existence at hand.
  • Expecting to be betrayed by a mind-controlled Harbinger, he used the situation to save the remaining universes at the time. And after ages, he's finally managed to regenerate. He's a distant, higher-up protector of the multiverse, an embodiment of positive matter who's personal strength depends on the amount of positive matter universes. And the pantheon's grander multiverse was so full of the stuff it made him immensely powerful. He is also aware of the likes of Merged Zamasu who wish to destroy the multiverse, and he's ready to take arms against such beings.
  • During his retreat, he became the progenitor to an entire race of Monitors who guard a different universe. Having reviewed the poorly-received Countdown to Final Crisis, Linkara wasn't impressed and summarized them in "We should do something! Should we do something?" The Monitor agreed with him on this and hopes to sort things out with the only active member of these new Monitors, Nix Uotan, and respects how Linkara has defended his own universe from various threats. He was also horrified to learn of Mandrakk the Dark Monitor, and the vampiric nature of these new Monitors. There's a lot for him to clean up.
  • His ilk dwells in Monitor Space, which lies above the Sphere of the Gods and bordering the edge of the DC Multiverse itself. As such, he usually searches for friends and foes in the Main House. He found much in common with Primus-both are ancient, multiversal guardians who have an Evil Twin that wishes to destroy everything. He has also allied with Cosmos, as the Grand United Alliance of Good are an excellent alliance to oppose the Anti-Monitor and his like. Unlike her he is willing to get those from the other alliances(sans the Grand United Alliance of Destruction) if it means protecting the multiverse. Sometimes heroes and villains have to work together for an ultimate threat.
  • Because of his role as Guardian of the Multiverse, he plays an important role in the House of Time and Space. He was curious about Giratina, since it is a god of antimatter yet wishes to protect the positive matter universe of Pokémon. Giratina explained that the two need each other and the Anti-Monitor is an aberration that must be stopped. The Monitor wholeheartedly agreed and was happy to see that antimatter could be used for good. He has gotten along with both the Creation Trio for their role of guardians of dimensions, and their creator Arceus for how they guide the realities below them.
  • Has been making various tuning forks to buffer the defense of the many universes in the pantheon, across both space and time. Chronoa has been giving him advice for where and when to put them, and Clockwork has been helping upgrade them to be better at protecting space-time. While doing this, the tuning forks were being assaulted and burned down by Lord English. His ambition to destroy everything ever and ability to manipulate history using the Stable Time Loop makes him just as dangerous as the Anti-Monitor, possibly even MORE so.
  • The rebuilt Monitor Sphere serves as his mobile temple, containing vast amounts of information. The Admins still have more that he does, though. The Brainspawn have been assaulting it to satiate their lust for all the knowledge in creation, then destroy it afterwards. Whenever they do so he shoots them down, and proved too out of their weight class to stupefy.
  • Has been travelling to the different higher realms in the various multiverses the pantheon has access to. He ended up travelling to the center of the Adventure Time multiverse, and met Prismo in the Time Room. He found Prismo to be very friendly company. There he also learned of the Lich, who considers the Monitor to be one of his biggest obstacles against his goal of destroying all life. The Monitor is proud of how Finn and Jake have managed to fight against this menace.
  • Has some issues with Beerus-he's not exactly comfortable with a Destroyer Deity, much less a petty one like him. However he is about keeping balance in the universe and despises the likes of Zamasu who cause destruction on a multiversal scale. He is also not quite sure what to think of the Zeno for their childishness, but they are ultimately trying to keep order like their Secret Test of Character, so he ultimately sides with them.
  • He is also not quite sure what to think of Eliphas. While he desires order, he is a Knight Templar who has issues in enforcing too much of it. However Eliphas is improving his attitude and he is far more preferable to Don Thousand's desire to spread chaos everywhere. He considers Lord Fuse a major enemy as well for his power to merge different worlds so as to assimilate them to his will.
  • Appears to be unaffected by the various reboots and tweeks to continuity that DC Comics has undergone. This has led him to be aware of those rendered under Canon Discontinuity and the pantheon's various retcons. Malal saw the Monitor's ascension as his golden opportunity to escape the Retconnian, likely the pantheon's answer to Limbo and become the most powerful Chaos God of all. He has been assaulting the Monitor for this reason, who completely disapproves of the outcast for obvious reasons.
  • For their opposition to Lord English, he finds the kid heroes of Homestuck excellent champions for the safety of creation. He considers Reiji Arisu and Xiaomu important allies due to their prior experience with saving the day in massive crossovers. He has also found a kinship with the Living Tribunal, for being the Marvel Multiverse's guardian. The Living Tribunal doesn't think he's as impressive as he should be, but otherwise they are working together to safeguard both their multiverses. He has got to know Eternity as well.
  • Doesn't believe in being overt, and is more concerned with the biggest of threats. He's more about using the various superheroes for a larger goal. It's a philosophy that Eru Ilúvatar can understand, and so does Cosmos and Whis. Following his return, however, he might have to be more active in his goal as the monitor and guardian of the DC Multiverse.
  • Also has a seat in the Pantheon Caretakers in the Main House.

  • Opposes: Whis (Haruhi)
  • Opposed by: Maeda Keiji (Haruhi)
  • Extremely Complicated Relationship with: The Spy (Haruhi)
  • O-Haruhi-Sama has been feeling bored lately. With the current going-ons in the Pantheon where everyone is getting traumatized left and right, she feels that she, Eru and Dream aren't really doing anything important despite having the highest positions possible. The gods way higher than them, Gygax and Arneson decided (after rolling two 20s together) that the Holy Trinity shall be no more. They were saddened, but ultimately not surprised and get packing right away.
    • After departing from the Main House, she found out that her friends have their temples in shambles due to poor maintenance and they are spending more time in the mortal realm. Not wanting to get lonely again, Haruhi decided to reunite with her friends once again by finding a new position: as the Divine Quintet of Genre Blending. At the Gods' Courthouse, she explains her reason for such a title; her series mixes a lot of genres from sci-fi to slice of life to romance among others to the point that there is no concrete genre to define the series. After some evaluating, the Court thinks she and her friends can take the title, since they have enough influence in the Pantheon for quite some time. When they reascended, Haruhi became overjoyed and declares that the SOS Brigade is back in action, much to Kyon's exasperation.
  • Haruhi also designates Tsuruya as herald due to hanging out with the Brigade very often. The latter is also excited that she gets to be part of a larger world. Some other deities might often see her as Churuya, her chibi self that often says, "Nyoron~".
  • Konata Izumi has always been the biggest advocate for O-Haruhi-Sama. She was overjoyed when the latter returned and gave full support to her and her friends. Likewise, Patricia Martin also offered to help them in school events, mostly of the anime and manga variety.
  • They also have good relations with the ESP Research Society, with Haruhi genuinely happy to meet Haruka Kotoura, a real esper in the flesh (well, everyone else knew already) and Kyon is chummy with Yoshihisa Manabe despite the latter's tendency to think in a perverse manner. Yuriko Mifune gets along with Mikuru and offers advice to her on how to seduce Kyon, like with obvious Fanservice though Mikuru takes it with a grain of salt considering Daichi Muroto's reactions to Yuriko's advances. Speaking of Daichi, he got along with Nagato and formed a club with her and Histoire, Blanc, Patchouli Knowledge and Yue Ayase because the Pantheons is too noisy and he wants to read quietly. All in all, Haruhi likes Haruka and her friends as long as they don't interfere with her plans (not that they want to, anyways).
  • Yuya Sakaki, Yuzu Hiiragi and their respective counterparts have befriended the Brigade after hearing about their many adventures. Even the Brigade is horrified by the events of the Dimensional War, as the threats of those like Jean-Michel Roger and Professor Leo Akaba have posed reminds them of various enemies they themselves have faced like Ryoko Asakura, Fujiwara, the Data Overmind and the Agency. (Luckily, Haruhi is still not aware of them.) Haruhi finds the war too much even for her and gave the counterparts full support of the SOS Brigade.
  • They also vehemently oppose Junko Enoshima and Monokuma for getting other students to kill each other in despair in a locked down school. Junko in turn thinks they also might be perfect toys to play with and is fascinated by the fact that Haruhi has god-like powers and a person like her is perfect to fall into despair, ignoring her sounding like Monaca. No one dares to tell Junko about the repercussions...
  • Exclusive to Haruhi:
    • A Genki Girl who formed the SOS Brigade after getting bored with joining the other clubs. Her aim with the club is meeting all sorts of creatures like aliens, time travelers and espers. She got what she wanted when she first ascended to the Pantheon, further exciting her more.
      • What no one is telling her is that she has god-like powers. If she did find out that she had already shaped her universe, this can break reality in and of itself and her ignorance to this is part of the Equilibrium. The Status Quo is making sure that she remains oblivious for as long as possible.
      • With this revelation, Yuki Terumi and Bernkastel think this is a good idea to shape the current reality into a bleaker and dark one. They first deceive her into thinking they mean no harm which works; then they make her believe their views of everyone should be suffering and it is all hopeless to change that. The result works too well; the Pantheons ended up becoming a Fire and Brimstone Hell and everyone is finding a safe place to take cover. Luckily this did not last, as Rachel, Rika and the LOLrangers quickly come to her aid with Rachel and Palutena giving the mischievious two a beatdown they deserve. Haruhi was too broken by the time they got to her, so they get Pollyanna Whittier's help to cheer her up. Pollyanna tells her to play 'The Glad Game' and not think about anything bad Terumi and Bernkastel told her. Haruhi believes her advice, causing the world around her to literally brighten once more and gained a Morality Pet in Pollyanna. When the rest of the Brigade heard about this, they fiercely fortify their temple and prepare for the next worst incident involving the Trollkaiger.
    • Probably not Kyon's girlfriend.
    • Some sects believe Sasaki should have ascended instead of Haruhi. But since Sasaki herself does not desire this or any other position in the pantheon, this would be a moot heresynote . Likewise, another group of schismatics believe Kyon is the true God of Tropes. He pretends not to hear them.
    • Back then, Haruhi used to always keeps her trusty Reset Button, which has resetted situations numerous times, such as how Shinji Ikari's moments of happiness get cut short from her pressing it. That is until an enraged Yui Ikari stormed through the Main House and almost killed her. Even though she didn't succeed, Yui did destroy the Reset Button, freeing her son.
    • She is considered to be the greatest shipmaster in the Pantheon. Many gods have been traumatized as a result. Maeda Keiji, the resident matchmaker greatly opposes this; while he does pair up people a lot, he does so with consideration of compatibility and prior relations while Haruhi ships everyone just because they have fanart on Deviant Art.
    • How did she had the Spy under her orders, you ask? Well, he tried to disguise himself as her after getting bored of impersonating John Carmack in the Main House and it took fifty seconds for her to catch him in the act. Instead of kicking him out with extreme prejudice, she gave him three certain conditions if he wanted to keep hanging around in there: NEVER reveal any info to any god regardless of alignment, stay invisible and check if anyone is following you in the Main House and simply follow her around. He accepted, though he is still embarrassed that he got caught very quickly.
      • The other members are still very wary of him though. Even if he already expressed that attacking them is a disobedience to O-Haruhi-Sama, his very nature will still spell trouble for them.
    • She may have a bit of an ego, but deep down she does care about those around her... unless you're her enemy. Aside from Terumi and Bernkastel, she is irritated that Monaca Towa share the same voice as her Monaca herself thinks Haruhi is not worth fighting considering the latter's powers... Haruhi finds most destroyer deities like Melkor, the Anti-Monitor, Zamasu and Nekron frightening and tries to stay far away from them. What makes matters worse is that the Pantheons can still be shaped to her will and once they learned this from Terumi and Bernkastel, they individually plan to kill her in order to cause chaos and destruction to all. And ever since his ascension, Lord Fuse is on her shitlist because of what he did to the place and her friends; Fuse also fears her as much as he fears Dream of the Endless and Gygax & Arneson because she too has power over imagination, his greatest weakness and also arguably more stronger than the previous three.
    • Haruhi is chummy with fellow clubrunner Miu Kazashiro, though Miu feels Haruhi can be a bit too overbearing. She also has good terms with the idol group Muse, even getting them to perform at events organized by the SOS Brigade. A few members, notably including Maki Nishikino are a bit wary around Haruhi's eccentricities, though Kyon assures them they will be tempered and kept in check.
    • Besides Pollyanna, Haruhi also befriended Miyuki Hoshizora for wanting everyone to be happy and Miyuki definitely did not bore her when they hang out together, thus gaining another Morality Pet. She also hanged out with Excel, a fellow Genki Girl who finds kinship with her. Aware of her uselessness, Haruhi tries to have Excel in groups Haruhi personally dislikes to which Excel, being Excel always accepts with enthusiasm and no questions.
    • Gained an Odd Friendship in Yoruichi Shihouin for reasons as of yet undisclosed. Haruhi even invites her to cosplay events once in a while, which Yoruichi do accept once her schedule has openings.
    • Haruhi rejoices at her return to the mortals of the United States with the release of her adventures on DVD and Blu-Ray, and legal streaming September 13th, 2016, after a long time of being away and legally unavailable.
  • Exclusive to Kyon:
    • A reserved guy who is responsible for Haruhi's club in the first place and regrets it ever since. And this isn't for comical reasons. Also an Unreliable Narrator due to how some events are given embellishments as well as giving too much bias. He's not bothering to refuting these claims. Regardless, he exists to balance out her energy and keep the world in a roughly constant shape.
    • He may have temporary falling outs with Haruhi like when her abuse on Mikuru reaching an apex, causing Kyon to snap and almost punched her, but he and Haruhi will ultimately reconcile in spite of that. They will not making anymore big moves other than that.
    • Kyon has met Fred Jones of the Mystery Gang, who was surprised that his adventures are super fantastical. Kyon at first thinks Fred's own adventures are just child's play compared to him... until he heard of the time Fred and his friends has beaten the Nibiru Entity. From that day onward, Kyon has nothing but respect for Fred.
    • He used to be the God of Normalcy since outside of the SOS Brigade he finds other parts of his life boring, and Naota Nandaba was the one who coined the trope's name. Because of this, the two became friends, being the Only Sane Men of their worlds. Likewise, Houtarou Oreki also shares Kyon's said trait along with being dismotivated by their boring worlds. Also joining the 'only sane men' club is Starfleet Captain Jean-Luc Picard, who often Face Palms at everything going wrong. Picard also sympathized with Kyon for the various threats he and his friends faces being all too similar to his and his crew's experiences with enemies from all over the galaxy.
    • Being a First-Person Smartass, he also got along with Peter Parker and Daria Morgendorffer as fellow Deadpan Snarkers. Daria is a bit baffled why would Kyon keep hanging around with the SOS Brigade if he's so unwilling to join their escapades, to which Kyon refuted that he does enjoy their presence after a fight with himself (yes, really) realizing that he prefers wacky adventures rather than a normal life and someone needs to temper them for once.
      • Speaking of not wanting to stay normal, Kyon also got along with Azuma Kazuki and his friends as they too refuse to live a boring life. Azuma even offered to defend the Brigade whenever a threat looms over them, which Kyon accepts, given the nature of the Pantheons.
    • Also got along with Mordecai and Rigby for constantly having weird things happen to them. Kyon even joins them in slacking off, playing video games and whatnot.
    • Ever since his encounter with Ryoko Asakura going after him, Kyon started to fear Yanderes for not wanting to relive it again. Unfortunately, Lilith Madlove refuse to give him a break by chasing him, getting mad for not accepting Asakura's love for him. It doesn't help that she is too reminiscent of Asakura.
      • This opposition also extends to the rest of the Yandere Squad, with the exception of Yuno Gasai (whenever she's not her 1st World self), Anna Kozuki and Yubel.
    • Because of his voice, Kyon gained an Odd Friendship in Ragna the Bloodedge who went through even worse hell than Kyon did. Together, they relate to one another about the most out-there experiences they had and Ragna even offered to defend Haruhi for Kyon after Terumi once broke her.
  • Exclusive to Mikuru:
    • A Cute Clumsy Girl who serves tea to the other Brigade members, often in a maid outfit. She is literally dragged into the club just to be the living embodiment of sex appeal.
    • Apart from standing around, looking cute, she is also a time traveler, with a star-shaped mole on her left chest. This causes her to befriend Ryotaro Nogami, Hiro Nakamura and the Doctor; the former can relate to her unluckiness and gentle, soft-spoken nature and the latter even let her join on his adventures just to cheer her up. Some speculate he is the reason Mikuru's future self is much colder...
    • She is suspected to be an alternate version of Orihime, due to similarity in appearance, personality, and English voice. Both of them deny being the same person, but they get along swimmingly and Orihime hopes she gets better treatment from her friends. Mikuru also has befriended Fuuka Yamagishi after they both shared similar stories of bullying from a close friend.
    • Has gotten along with Mikan Tsumiki for being a fellow Cute Clumsy Girl and having a lot of Fanservice moments and the similarly-named Aoi Asahina, who often shares donuts with her. Though she has nothing nice to say about Tsumugi Shirogane; Enoshima is one problem and Tsumugi sadly adds to that because of her end-goal of entertainment for herself, even being compared to Mikuru as her Evil Counterpart of sorts. Tsumugi herself thinks she would be a perfect candidate in a killing game, though she have to get through the other Brigade members considering who and what they are.
    • Some believe she is the real force behind the creation of the band Houkago Tea Time. This is not the case, though Mikuru did befriended them especially Mio Akiyama for also being Reluctant Fanservice Girls. She oftens joins them in band rehearsals and school festivals.
    • Has gotten along with both Fluttershy and Nia Teppelin, who used to be one of her former followers. Fluttershy can relate a lot to Mikuru's clumsy and gentle nature while Nia is also kind enough to her and she never treated her like an object. Most gods in proximity, even the most stoic ones cannot handle the sheer sweetness of their free time together.
      • On a related note, Mikuru also befriended the Katawa Girls and by extension, Hisao Nakai as well. But watch out, seeing the girls having fun will also have you grinning wide and blushing beet red.
    • Those who make her cry will receive a sonorous reprimand from O-Haruhi-Sama. Kyon and Koizumi learned the hard way.
    • It seems that her future self will have already arranged for her placement in the pantheon. What could her plan be?
  • Exclusive to Nagato:
    • A really quiet girl with glasses who is actually a Humanoid Interface sent by the Data Overmind to observe Haruhi and her powers.
      • She does have emotions, she just doesn't express it much. This hasn't stop her from finding kinship with the person she was based on, Rei Ayanami and her Great Herald, Origami Tobiichi. The three are often seen hanging around in the Houses of Knowledge reading in total silence together, often with Daichi's reading club.
    • So leet, she can hack reality. Challenged O-Haruhi-sama once, but got beaten badly.(Or, at least, that's the official version. There are some who believe that Nagato would have destroyed Haruhi entirely had it not been for Kyon's influence. At any rate, nowadays she is much more preferably a follower of Kyon.)
    • She got along greatly with Spock who she once served as his High Priest. They also relate their problems of feeling emotions to each other and discusses their importance to their growth. Together, they become an excellent duo of logic and analysis, often with IF joining due to being a fellow Knowledge Broker.
    • Since they don't speak very often, Nagato got along well with Gordon Freeman even aiding him in attacks against the Combine and Dr. Wallace Breen. Also gained an Odd Friendship of sorts with Duke Togo for this very reason. Try not to expect them to talk much though, let alone with each other.
      Nagato, Togo and Freeman: ...
    • Got along with Miranda Campbell due to the two sharing a voice. She even offered to defend her and Coco from various threats of the Pantheons, which she accepts with gratitude.
    • Can play the guitar better than (almost) any human. If cheered on by the Ouendan, The Beatles can beat her. And maybe Buckaroo Banzai. Maybe. But Buckethead can.
    • Has another self from a timeline where she actually got together with Kyon. Nagato is considering opening up more to Kyon to emulate her alternate self's success.
  • Exclusive to Koizumi:
  • The SOS Brigade is also present in the Main House.

  • Enemies: The ascended cast of Neon Genesis Evangelion, Light Yagami
  • Complicated Relationship with: Sofia Lamb
  • Made his ascension with multiple posters stapled across the walls of the Pantheon saying, "You must become Caligari!"
  • Despite his job as a psychiatrist, he claims that the House of Ambiguity is weird, even for his tastes. That said, he thinks that Lambdadelta is an interesting friend for tea.
  • With the reveal that all of his and Cesare's evil actions is in Francis's hallucination, the Pantheon is having a headache of trying to figure out whether or not to ascend the Caligari in Francis's hallucination or the "real" Caligari. In the end, the Pantheon decided to let the two share the temples, with one alternate the other.
  • He and Harley Quinn forge an unconventional relationship because of the fact that they are... less than normal psychiatrist. She surprisingly bonds with the "real" Caligari during her saner moments.
    • Caligari has less of a smooth relationship with Sofia Lamb, however, given that she is so evil that Caligari's "real" counterpart can't get along with her.
  • Rick Blaine freaked out when visiting his temple because Caligari and Caesar are fictional characters in his universe. Blaine has been trying to avoid the both of them ever since.
  • Being the temple that holds the mad moments of quite a few of notable figures in the Pantheon, he has earned the ire quite a few figures in the Pantheon.
    • The most prolific figures are the ascended cast of Neon Genesis Evangelion because his temple holds the mad montage from them. While Caligari promised to not use them for any evil purpose, they still uncomfortable with the montage's very existence.
    • Yagami despite Caligari with a passion due to his house holds the one montage of his breakdown when he is about to be arrested and killed by Ryuk, couples with the fact that Caligari's patient Cesare has similar looks to Light's enemy L and Ryuk.
  • Because his movie is the one that makes films grow into a valid art form, his temple received a lot of visit from many cinematic deities. The "real" Caligari is annoyed with this while the insane Caligari is welcoming visitors to satisfy his ego.
  • Can also be found in Insane Behavior.

  • The King of Britain (or France), ruler of Camelot, wielder of the Excalibur, leader of the Round Table, King Arthur Pendragon's legend and reputation is widely known in the Pantheon. The mystical king ascended after the fall of Camelot and promise to go back to Britain if he is ever needed again. In the mean time, he took up his Excalibur and promise to continue to fight for justice and goodness in the Pantheon by managing two temples that he represents best.
  • When heard that he ascended, Merlin and Lancelot immediately dropped every plans they have and dash straight through his temple. However, while Merlin and Arthur shares a hug in their memory, Lancelot was much more hesitate because he cheated on him with Guinevere and, unlike Arturia, this Arthur is much less approve about this event as well as the fact that he, indirectly, responsible for the fall of Camelot. While Arthur can't seem to find it in himself to completely forgive Lancelot, he praises what a brilliant and loyal soldier he is and agree to let him rejoin the newly reform Knights of the Round Table.
  • Because of his long history and popularity, Arthur's backstory, personality and appearance vary from world to world. Beside the traditional Arthur, he can be seen as a boy named Wart practicing magic with an elderly Merlin, a young prince ruling a kingdom with Merlin as the same age secretly a magical user, a newly crowned young king mentored by a female Merlin and another, with the help of one of his avatars, Sir Sean Connery, as an old man fighting to bring justice to Britain without any magical power at all.
  • When heard about a female version of himself is in the Pantheon, Arthur paid her temple a visit. To his surprise, she also exists in the Nasuverse. The two of them share stories about their time as a servant and Arthur offers her words of encouragement to congratulate her as a leader who overcome sexism. The two usually ends their evening with a friendly non-magical sword fight to see which King Arthur is better.
    • Thanks to Artoria, Arthur learned of other servants in the Pantheon that are alternative counterpart to servants in his world. His reaction to them are rather... unpleasant to say the least. He buttheads with Cu Chulainn over his bloodthirsty personality, Mordred quickly declares him an imposter and seeks to attack him while him and Gilgamesh also immediately engages in battle at first glance of each other. Overall, the other servants and masters are all very wary around him due to the fact that he is willing to kill off his own former master Manaka - to prevent her unleash evil to the world, but still.
    • He was very worried when heard a guy named Perseus ascended and went to investigate. He was very relief to see that this isn't Servant Perseus and the two got along well due to the fact that both are destined to save their country by higher power. Perseus was very sorry for him when learned about Guinevere's affair with Lancelot.
  • Immediately after his ascension, Arthur seeks to recover his lost magical weapon - the legendary Excalibur. His quest led him to uncover not one, but two swords of its type: A peaceful one and a loony one... Arthur just sighs and tolerate the loony one.
    • Right after learning about each other's identity, him and Artoria have a friendly competition of which one can pawn off the annoying Excalibur to the other with Lancelot and Merlin keeping score. Arthur usually loses because he is too noble to actually turn Artoria away or plays dirty even when he could have.
    • This Excalibur is also more respectful to him than he is to most, as he is THE King Arthur, who was the only Meister he respected. He's willingly to not interrupt Arthur when he talks, and is actually willingly to let Arthur use him in combat.
  • Because of his past experience fighting Morgan le Fay, he was very welcoming to anyone who has faced her like the Justice League and the Avengers, considering them continue his legacy. Some people he especially forms close friendship include:
    • Aquaman, aka king Arthur Curry, for both being king with supernatural heritage. The two share a laugh whenever they were mistook for each other due to both being blonde king named Arthur.
    • He and Superman got along really well due to both being the Big Good of their universe and helps inspire an entire genre (Clark for superheroes, Arthur for medieval romance).
    • He is glad to see Batman again after discover that he is a Knight of the Round Table. Bruce is just confused and annoyed because it is an Elseworlds version of him rather than Bruce himself.
  • Was asked to enlist to the Grand United Alliance of Good right after he ascended. Arthur was honored and promise to do his best to protect the weak and help to spread goodness.
  • His adventures into the fairytale adaptations have brought Arthur many allies. He made quick friends with deities from the Disney due to entry in their universe and promise to help them push out evil as many way he can. However, he is very afraid of being turned into a squirrel because of what happened the last time he messed with magic.
  • Has a very strong distaste for Aphrodite because she is the guardian of those who cheated on their spouses and tells her she should be ashamed of herself.
  • Goliath is very pleased when seeing one of close allies to the Gargoyle New York clan ascend into the Pantheon because he helped them fight invasion in Avalon.
    • Arthur was at first very excited when he heard that his old Vitriolic Best Buds / Friendly Enemy ascend and plan to have rematch. However, he found out that this Macbeth isn't as noble as the man he met in New York and was VERY angry about Macbeth's plan to murder his own king and kill everyone to protect his position, as well as being a lousy king. He also hates that the Weird Sisters — the ones that manipulated Macbeth into fighting him for the Excalibur, have also ascended.
    • Arthur also starting to meet Goliath lately to study how he adapts to the modern world in order to prepare for his eventual return to modern England. He also absorbs the knowledge of several of his versions who did return and started a new kingdom or a new Knights of the Round Table.
  • The Pantheon generally keep Dracula and Arthur out each other's path due to the fact that both of their previous encounter did NOT end pretty for everyone involved.
  • Was at first confused when heard the name Uther in the Pantheon. After an investigation, he was somewhat disappointed that it was Uther Lightbringer, not Pendragon, ascended. However, Uther and him quickly develop a father-son bond due to the fact that both of them are warriors who seek to bring justice to their land as well as the fact that both of them have dabble in card games before.
    • Because of Uther, he learned and was disgusted by the deed Arthas Menethil has done and declare the Lich King to be his sworn enemy. Outsider have observed that this is because they walked a similar but the inverse path of each other: They both pulled a powerful sword from the stone that marked them for the throne, was both advised from a wizard with odd life cycle and both founded an order of knight. The main difference is that Arthur's path was surrounded by people who have the best intention while Arthas was insane and manipulated by the powers around him.
  • He got along very well with Ned Stark and Daenerys Targaryen due to the fact that he is a good ruler that want the best for his people. When heard about their story, Arthur wished that Ned's life have turned out better and that both of them don't have to life in Westeros. However, he was NOT impressed by the stunts Tywin pulled.
  • Indiana Jones mistook him for his father when Arthur was in his "Old man" form and said hi. After clearing the confusion, the two develop a friendship, especially after Indy helped him to track down the Excalibur.
  • When needing to unwind, Arthur slips into his "comedic" persona in the Monty Python universe and spends time with people like Sir Robin and the Monty Python versions of his Knights while discussing about swallows and airspeed velocity of an unladen one while running and clicking two half of a coconut against each other. Lancelot isn't particularly like visiting his temple because when Arthur is in this mode, Lancelot would become a violent, homicidal maniac who kills people without a second thought.
    • In this mode, Arthur once visit his old enemy the Killer Rabbit and throws a Holy Hand Grenade into the beast to get back at the creature for killing his men. However, he needs people to help him count because he keeps skipping the number three.
    • However, when unwinding, it's best not to talk about constitutional rules within his earsight or else he'll end up doing something... repressing ("Help! Help! I'm being repressed!"). When he's actually on normal mode, he's more willing to talk about constitutional rules, just as long as it's not about just changing the way he ruled at Camelot into that.
  • Was at first terrified (or annoyed, if this Black Knight was that 'stupid bastard who got no limbs left') when meeting a black knight who attack him. After Arthur fends off the knight and learned of his story, he has nothing but sympathy for the knight whose name he learned to be Artorias for being possessed by the Abyss, also because the knight just got really unlucky with his own version of a magical and hopes that one day he can get better.
  • When heard that he has ascended, Timmy Turner paid his temple a visit because he helped Arthur fought a dragon with his godparent's magic. Arthur was honored by his visit and gave him a special visit privilege to his temple whenever he wants.
  • When heard that Arthur has ascended, Sonic assumed that his old nemesis is back and proceed to his temple to attack him. When the two fought to a stand still and heard each other out, Sonic realized his mistake and apologize. The two team up to seek and slay any versions of the Black Knight in the Pantheon but still wary around one another because Sonic thinks this Arthur may snap back into his world's Black Knight version while Arthur is wary because Sonic slew his version of King Arthur and the fact that Sonic is the true King Arthur in his world.
  • No matter what form he's in, there's one thing that makes people easily recognize Arthur as King, aside of his Excalibur: He hasn't got shit all over him.

    BEN 
BEN, Unholy God of Internet Short Horror Stories
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d39ac4ca0986ac42b2b5eb99fd88b8de.png
  • Intermediate God... maybe.
  • Symbol: A disturbing Link Statue.
  • Theme: The Song of Healing. Played backwards.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Started the 'Creepypasta' Trend, Haunted Game Cartridges, Nightmare Fuel, Contagious A.I. (?), Eldritch Abomination (?), Sealed Evil in a Game Cartridge, Bleeding Into Reality, Nothing Is Scarier, Worsening the Emotional Torture, Big Bad
  • Domains: Fear, Technology, Otherness, Nostalgia, Water(?)
  • High Priests: The Crew of the Laughingstock and Zalgo
  • Allies: Majora (surprisingly enough), Slender Man, Giygas, Phazon, Spooky, SCP-993, White Face
  • Rivals: The Outsider, Richard, AM, .GIFfany, Pony Island
  • Enemies: All other The Legend of Zelda deities, good and evil and those from other media with an accompanying Creepypasta, (Insert Name Here), Lain Iwakura, Mr. Rogers, Noah Kaiba, The Lyoko Warriors, Sombra, King Kong, Ben Tennyson, AM's five victims, The SCP Foundation, The Protectors of the Plot Continuum
  • Unknown Relationship with: Polybius, Alex Mercer, most Outer Gods, The Sleeper
  • BEN is an enigmatic figure. His nature, actions, ultimate goal and origin; all complete mysteries. Many gods and goddesses offer widely differing explanations for the creature, but there is one thing they all agree on; at some point in time, a boy named Ben drowned. (for a sinister purpose of a moon-worshipping cult...)
  • BEN appeared in the Pantheons soon after an odd event in the House of Gaming: a mortal follower playing The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask noted that the game had started to glitch up, referring to him as "BEN". When he resets the game, he was greeted with the words, "You have met a terrible fate, haven't you?" He mentioned hearing the Song of Healing played backwards before passing out. Since then, that copy of Majora's Mask has been confiscated and quarantined in a temple under Hermaeus Mora's supervision. That hasn't stopped the entity inside that copy from getting out into the corporeal world...
  • While BEN’s domain is Creepypasta in general, his specialty is the corruption of innocence; that is to say, creepy and unsettling takes on old, nostalgic pieces of entertainment. Suicidemouse.avi, Squidward's Suicide, Dead Bart and all manner of ‘lost episodes’ and ‘game hacks’ spring from BEN.
    • This ended up gaining the eternal enmity from the The Legend of Zelda deities, good and evil due to BEN tainting a copy of one of their titles to terrorize anyone hapless enough to play it. Other deities, like Mickey Mouse, SpongeBob and Bart Simpson are also horrified that BEN's influence has reached their shows as well. The GUAG is currently trying to find more effective methods to keep BEN's said influence at bay. (Insert Name Here), being every Creepypasta protagonist ever as well as the reader has every reason to fully oppose BEN.
    • To spite the Zelda deities even further, BEN often appears himself as Link with a creepy face or the Link Statue. Part of it because his followers always see him like that and part of it is just for screwing with them.
  • There is one Zelda deity that BEN can find a footing with; the God of Evil Masks, Majora. Like BEN, Majora also likes to torture others for amusement and they have sinister plans for their victims, though BEN is a lot more secretive about his. Majora is disappointed that he can't truly control BEN like a puppet, but he became ecstatic once again since his alliance with Yuki Terumi since he found another dark entity to relate to and the feeling is mutual for BEN. Who knows what kind of horrible fates they would bring to the entire Pantheons...
    • Being a fellow entity with fame from the creepypasta circle, Slender Man is seen with BEN a lot. Let's not think about their meetings. BEN also joins Spooky as her new scarer and attraction in her Haunted House because she gave him more opportunities to terrorize more people. And Giygas also has an Odd Friendship with BEN, probably because their true forms are incomprehensible. Not everybody wants to know what BEN's true form is...
    • Other malevolent entities BEN finds kinship in is White Face (for assaulting the player directly by haunting his game) and Phazon (a fellow creature capable of corruption) after Majora introduced him to them. BEN on his own met SCP-993 who also corrupts childhood innocence to the point of evil. Everybody started fearing what would happen if BEN teams up with or uses his newfound brethren...
  • Being an enigmatic entity, BEN gained rivals in The Outsider and Richard. All three have their own unknown agendas (though BEN's is easy to guess) and who knows, maybe they'll use each other for such...
    • Both he and AM have a penchant of torturing others, though BEN wants the suffering out of amusement while AM does so out of sheer malice. Due to the difference in expectations, they became rivals instead. That hasn't gain BEN brownie points from AM's own victims who see him as no better; they try to stay away from BEN just so that he'll never get any ideas of haunting them.
    • Very rare, but BEN does get compared to the Outer Gods due to his unfathomability and also capable of driving his victims mad. The Outer Gods hasn't said anything about him yet. Considering that The Sleeper also corrupt its surroundings, a select few began fearing of a combination between the two...
    • The SCP Foundation has been working with Hermaeus Mora (albeit the alliance is uneasy) on containing BEN completely, causing him to hate them for stopping his hauntings. The Protectors of the Plot Continuum also hate BEN for not only his usual threat but spawning endless terrible OCs that serve to fulfill every horror fangirl's wet dream which some are trying to intrude into the Pantheons. Surprisingly, even BEN agrees he doesn't like Fangirls too much.
  • Being a creature born from The Internet, he has gained the ire of Lain Iwakura and the Lyoko Warriors who sees him as no better than XANA. Noah Kaiba is horrified that a threat more worse than him actually exists, and Sombra not only sees him as an obstacle to her plans but a horror as well.
    • .GIFfany sees him as competition since they both get out of their game to reach their victims and the Lucifer of Pony Island is also jealous of BEN for that reason. Nobody wants to think about BEN and .GIFfany assimilating into something worse...
  • Mr. Rogers finds him everything he stood against since he wants happiness from remembering childhoods, not ruining them. Ben Tennyson is FURIOUS that he shares a name with an irredeemable evil to the point of unintentional mix-ups; not to mention having creepypastas of his series from BEN's influence.
    • Has a very confusing beef with King Kong. Probably has to do with April Fools' Day...
  • He is rumored to have some sort of connection with Polybius. Alex Mercer also has something to do with whatever is happening in BEN's universe. Mercer himself has not been reached for comment on this matter.
  • While BEN is biding his time for an opportunity, the other gods try to diminish his threat by bringing up the horrible Narmy memes coming out of terrible creepypasta like 'hyper-realistic blood' and 'WHO WAS PHONE?!'. Even BEN finds them amusing, but later on annoying as the jokes escalate.
  • “You shouldn’t have done that...”

    Fahrenheit Protagonists 
Lucas Kane, Carla Valenti and Tyler Miles, Gods and Goddess of Out-of-Genre Occurences
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fahrenheit_2005_protagonists_2.png
From left to right: Lucas Kane, Carla Valenti and Tyler Miles
  • Intermediate God, possibly Overdeity after learning the secret of the universe (Lucas), Demideities (Carla and Tyler)
  • Symbol: The Fahrenheit logo
  • Theme Song: Fahrenheit / Indigo Prophecy Main Title
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Out-of-Genre Occurences, Action Commands, Dueling Player Characters, Halfway Plot Switch, Private Eye Monologue, Sanity Meter
  • Domain(s): Genre, Mystery, Murder, Detectives
  • Allies: Norman Jayden, Jodie Holmes and Aiden, The Virtua Cops, Lucia Morgan, Caitlyn, Vi, The Mystery Gang, Most of the House of Justice
  • Enemies: Scott Shelby, Hannibal Lecter, YHVH and the Grand United Alliance of Law, The Illuminati, AM, Skynet, Master Control Program, HAL 9000, SHODAN
  • On a cold night in New York City in January 2009, a man was stabbed to death in the restroom of an East Side diner, with the killer, Lucas Kane, fleeing the scene shortly after. Detectives Carla Valenti and Tyler Miles were put in charge of solving the murder. However, what began as a murder mystery eventually escalated into a fantastical story involving Mayan cults, evil A.I. and supernatural powers.
  • Lucas Kane suddenly appeared within the Pantheon one day, with no idea of how he had gotten there. Initially suspecting the Oracle and the Orange Clan had tried to kidnap him in order to acquire the secret of the universe, Lucas was brought to the Main House and informed that the Orange Clan weren't present in the Pantheon. Simultaneously confused and relieved, Lucas proceeded to tell his story to the gods. When he concluded his story, the gods were quite impressed with how it got gradually stranger as it went along and offered to ascend him. He accepted, but requested that his wife Carla Valenti and her partner Tyler Miles ascend alongside him, which was granted.
  • They quickly managed to befriend Norman Jayden, Jodie Holmes and Aiden, whom they suspect might originate from the same world. While Norman occasionally teams up with Carla and Tyler, Jodie tends to hang out more with Lucas, whom she bonded with due to him also having powers and his ability to perceive Aiden.
  • They're also on good terms with law enforcers such as the Virtua Cops, Lucia Morgan, Caitlyn and Vi. While not a police officer himself, Lucas' powers allow him to work more efficiently and keep up better with Caitlyn and Vi.
  • They managed to strike up a friendship with the Mystery Gang, who have, on occasion, encountered actual monsters in their adventures.
  • They strongly oppose serial killers like Scott Shelby and Hannibal Lecter. Lucas dislikes Shelby due to the ordeal that he had put Ethan through, which reminds Lucas of how he himself had been possessed by the Oracle in order to kill someone. On the other hand, Carla is greatly unnerved by Hannibal Lecter due to how much he reminds her of what she experienced with Anton Janos at Bellevue Asylum.
  • Due to their experiences with the Orange Clan, they strongly dislike any conspiracy groups who seek to control other people. As a result, they oppose YHVH and the Grand United Alliance of Law as well as the Illuminati. Lucas suspects that members of those groups might have been responsible for his presence in the Pantheon in order to acquire the secret of the universe, which makes him especially wary of them.
  • Similarly, their encounters with the Purple Clan have resulted in them strongly opposing evil A.I. As such, they quickly became enemies with AM, Skynet, Master Control Program, HAL 9000 and SHODAN.
  • Lucas only:
    • Born and raised on a remote Wishita military base by his scientist parents, Lucas had periodic clairvoyant visions since his early childhood for reasons he did not understand. The disturbing nature of those visions had a severe emotional impact on him as a child, driving him to isolate himself from others. As an adult, Lucas worked as an IT manager and head of computer maintenance for the Naser & Jones Bank in Manhattan. However, his simple life was turned upside down when he was suddenly possessed by an unearthly force that drove him to murder a random man in the bathroom of a local diner. His visions, which had long been dormant, suddenly resurfaced with an increased frequency and potency following the events at the diner. He also discovered that since that night, he possessed enhanced speed, strength and reflexes, as well as the emergence of telekinetic abilities and temporary flight.
    • Lucas became good friends with Neo after noticing how much he their powers resembled each other. He's also on good terms with Gandalf and Phoenix Ikki, as he's also returned from death stronger than he was before.
    • Things are never quite what they seem. We think we understand the world around us but we really only see the outside. What it seems to be. I used to be just like you. I believed in humanity, the newspapers, soap commercials, politics and history books. One day the world kicks you in the teeth and you don't have any choice but to see things the way they really are. My name is Lucas Kane. My story is the one where an ordinary guy has something extraordinary happen to him. Maybe it was supposed to happen. Maybe it was my destiny or my karma or whatever. I know one thing for sure... nothing's ever going to be the same again.
  • Carla only:
    • Carla was born in Brooklyn, New York to Giuseppe Valenti and Anne Irpino as an only child, she is of Italian-American descent. Carla was known among the other members of the NYPD for her intense work ethic and commitment to the job, to the point that it appeared excessive. However, in reality, her devotion to her work was, in part, her own way of compensating for her lack of any personal life and few friends. Carla is naturally inquisitive and completionist, tending to brood over cases which appear to go nowhere, and is prepared to spend long hours poring over evidence in the hopes of finding one vital clue which may have been missed.
    • Her experience with interrogating serial killers resulted in her befriending Will Graham and Clarice Starling, whom she regularly teams up with in pursuit of apprehending Hannibal Lecter. Her claustrophobia also caused her to bond with Captain Hawkeye Pierce and Storm of the X-Men, both of whom share her phobia.
    • In five years on the force, I've seen some murders. But, you never really get used to death. You just learn to live with it, that's all. I still don't know if it was fatigue, the cold or something else, but I clearly remember the bad feeling I got when I walked into that restaurant, as if some part of me already knew that this time, something was different.
  • Tyler only:
    • Tyler Miles grew up in the Bronx and has three brothers and two sisters. He lead a rough life and this gave him passion for his police work in the hopes of making a difference, to the dismay of his fiance Samantha Malone due to her terror of him being hurt in the line of duty. Tyler, contrary to Carla's serious bearing, has a much more lackadaisical and upbeat attitude towards life, but his devotion to the job and to his fiance is unquestionable.
    • He's on very good terms with Luke Cage, who respects him for his similar desire to make New York a safer place. He also managed to bond with Ichiro Sato and Ryoko Sato, whose break up and subsequent getting back together again reminds him of his own ordeals with his fiance Sam. He also managed to befriend the Autobot Jazz due to their shared taste in music.
    • Back then, we didn't know anything yet. We just thought it was cold, you know. If I had known, I probably would have stayed in bed that night and not gotten out until it was all over. That's the problem. If we knew ahead of time what was going to happen, we'd never leave the house.

    Candyman 
Candyman, God of Urban Legends (Daniel Robitaille, The Writing on the Wall, The Whisper in the Classroom)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/candyman_tony_todd.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The mural of Candyman
  • Theme Song: Candyman Main Theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Man turned Urban Legend, Born of Human Belief, Appear by a mirror when his name is spoken five times, Murdered for loving a white woman, Wears a longcoat to conceal his exposed chests covered with bees, Murder with his hook hand and bees, Vengeful Ghost, Scary Black Man (was white in the original book)
  • Domains: Urban Legend, Mirror, Murder, Bees
  • Herald: Helen Lyle
  • Allies: Bloody Mary
  • Enemies: Sumaru City Persona-Users, Rosemary Woodhouse, Ghostbusters, Nicholas Cage
  • Pitied by: Luke and Jessica Cage, Jacqui Briggs and Takeda Takahashi, Alana and Marko, Nabi and Doki
  • Candyman was once a man named Daniel Robitaille, a "freedman" and painter who fell in love with a plantation owner's daughter and was murdered by her father and a lynch mob. His death involved the men sawing off his right hand, replacing it with a hook and leaving him to be stung to death by bees when they smeared him with honey. Since then, he became a legend in modern society, with his legend spoken from Cabrini-Green to New Orleans and to Los Angeles.
  • During the dead start of Halloween, the urban legend of Candyman began spreading through the temples with many gods gossiping of his existence and the possibility of his ascension under the relevant trope. One decided to test the legend for themselves by calling out his name to a mirror five times. Sure enough, Candyman appeared and gutted him and alerted the Pantheon to his existence.
  • Though it is required for his name to be called to a mirror five times for him to kill people, it appears that he despises people that try to deny his existence. Because he is a ghost born of urban legend, he requires people's belief of his existence to remain in the mortal world. Those that try to deny his existence are often the victims of his wrath or merely collateral damage just to prove his existence, as he did to Helen Lyle.
  • He is symbolized by bees, as he was murdered by being stung by bees when his body was covered with honey. As a ghost, his entire torso is a nest of bees and has murdered some people by attacking them with bees. Nicholas Cage is not amused.
  • Candyman respects Bloody Mary, another creature born of an urban legend. In fact, Candyman's MO is practically identical to Mary's since they need someone chanting their name in a mirror a number of times in order to make them attack.
  • He was drawn to Rosemary Woodhouse as a poor victim like Helen, though he is amused with rumors of the founder of the Church of Satan involved with the movie and alleged with playing the Devil himself.
  • Because of his love for Caroline Sullivan, he often stalks those that easily remind him of her. It was very convenient that his targets included Helen Lyle, who resembled her lover, and Annie Tarrant and Caroline McKeever, who are actually his descendants.
    • Some people pity him because his only "crime" was falling in love with a white woman at a time when racism was prevalent. Even Candyman sheds a tear whenever he is reminded of his death, particularly through other deities who have suffered because of racism.
    • Luke Cage, whose marriage with Jessica is met with disdain, even pities him. "And I thought I had it bad. Sweet Christmas."
  • The Sumaru City Persona-user dread his existence as he is a killer born of an urban legend, with the widespread belief of him keeping his existence in the Pantheon. Nyarlathotep would be proud.
  • Final Destination's Death seems rather interested in Candyman, as an entity that brings certain death to those that call his name five times. Death knows a mortal known as "William Bludworth", a mortician who looks and acts remarkably similar to Candyman.
  • No, he does not come from Bountyland.

  • Domains: Evil, Chaos, Strength, Murder
  • High Priest: The various Ghostface personas
  • Followers: Many monsters and killers in the Horror and Thriller genre
  • Allies: Johan Liebert, Aku, Jack of Blades, Kane, Evan McMillan
  • Rivals: Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees
  • Opposed by: Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott, All Private Detective deities, the House of Justice, Marion Crane, Kenzo Tenma
  • Feared by: Leatherface
  • Not to be confused with: Mike Myers
  • During one particular Halloween, Final Girl Laurie Strode couldn't help but think she was being followed. Thinking it was her long-time foe Jason, she looked back in search of anyone wearing a hockey mask. Instead, she saw someone far worse: her old nemesis in a familiar white mask. She immediately high-tailed it into her temple and locked the doors, fearing the worst. Michael Myers has entered the Pantheon.
    • To make matters worst, Sidney also saw her own personal stalker. It turns out that Myers chose Ghostface as his high priest as a token of thanks for reviving the Slasher Movie industry. The two now roam the Pantheon in search of victims.
  • Oddly enough, Jason and Freddy respect the newcomer enough as a rival than they do each other. That's probably due to being the originator of the genre. The two now let him terrorize the final girls to his heart's content.
  • Leatherface fears the masked man almost as much as his family. To him, Michael Myers' ascension is a sign to carry out more heinous murders.
  • Myers and his followers are the bane of Marion Crane and her clergy, many of whom were victims of horror films. It may be too late for her, but she can at least warn many others before they share the same fate.
  • One of the only true allies of his is the God of Sociopathy . Johan always gives him a nice list of victims to kill overnight. Myers doesn't care who it is, only that at least someone is willing to help quench his thirst for death.
    • This would probably explain why Tenma has put a significant time to put down Myers, second only to his never ending battle with Johan himself. Some like to compare him to Dr. Loomis, Meyer's archnemesis.
  • Is under no circumstances allowed to step foot in the House of Family. That goes double for the sub-house of Siblings. Michael Myers has a habit of killing anyone who looks like his sisters and their descendants. Not even evil-aligned deities there want to be anywhere near him.
  • Every detective in the Pantheon has been told to watch their backs whenever they encounter a victim of Myers' wrath. Virtually every detective in the Pantheon have vowed to take him down. Shawn Spencer has taken a particular interest in the monster... if only because of his love of horror movies.
  • Judge Dredd has ordered his forces to be cautious when encountering the man. He is more than a match for most of his forces and will be a difficult arrest indeed. Nevertheless, the House of Justice is dedicated to finding him.
  • Some conspiracy theorists believe that he may have gotten his power from a bit of Aku's essence. Since many think he is literally Made of Evil, this theory is agreed upon by some.
    • Robot Chicken proposed an interesting theory of his origin: he is actually Mike Myers with a clever change of his name. Even Mike Myers himself jumped at the idea. Most people dismissed the idea as a joke as best. Those who were voiced by him have distances themselves from the topic.
  • Is still awaiting the day he gets accepted into a Mortal Kombat game. Seeing so many of his peers gain entrance has him peeved.
  • Jack of Blades, wielder of the White Mask of Doom, hopes to make Michael Myers a crucial part of his repertoire in order to remove certain threats to his temple. Myers has proven to be more difficult to direct than he thought.
  • Many believe Kane drew inspiration for the slasher villain's reign of terror. He is currently interested in fighting Michael in a no-disqualification match, with McMahon contemplating about it. Many fans believe it would not end well for either wrestler should the two meet.
  • Despite his coming back so many times, there is a way to kill him for good. Of course, Death Is Cheap in the Pantheon, so that's not working.

Demigods

Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz, God of News Parodies (Jon Stewart)

  • Enemies: Cartman, Trollkaiger, John Cena
  • Opposed by: Hank Hill, Bandit Keith
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: with Stephen Colbert
  • It has long been Stephen Colbert's mission to try and ascend Jon Stewart in the Pantheon. The two have been at odds with each other for years during the heydays of when they owned their own shows. With Jon retiring, Colbert had no rival anymore. So he worked tirelessly to find a way to ascend him. That day finally arrived as the interest for News Parodies has never been higher. Boosted by this new craving, Colbert brought Stewart into the Pantheon. The first thing he did was gloat bout beating him to the Pantheon by several years. The next moment was spent with the two hugging each other. Differences aside, the two have become best of friends. Nowadays, Jon runs his own show entirely within the Pantheon to tell the news on what has happened in the land.
    • There are many anchors who use the News Parody as their platform but it was Jon Stewart who paved the way to making it popular. In fact, many of his followers ended up creating their own shows, including the ascended Stephen Colbert. The current head of his old show is Trevor Noah, his high priest. His final show was an emotional affair, with many hoping that he would continue on well past 2015. But he had made up his mind by then, leaving things to his high priest as he ventures off on his own.
  • With his new show in the Pantheon, Jon spent little time taking shots at the idiocy of many in the Pantheon. With plenty of factions around, there was no shortage of topics to bring up. It was then that he realized that people here tend to strike back much harder. A day after making fun of Handsome Jack's Villainous Breakdown, his show was completely taken over remotely by Trollkaiger who responded by spending an entire episode dissing Jon Stewart. The day was saved when the LOL Rangers managed to regain control of the broadcast. Afterwards, they invited him to become a partner ranger. Stewart is contemplating as we speak.
  • A New Yorker through and through, he has the city's back. That goes double for anyone who tries to talk trash about the Big Apple. That and anyone who tries to say deep dish pizza is better than New York style.
  • The were two different reactions to his ascension for the boys of South Park. Kyle welcomed the news, as he got to see a Nice Jewish Boy grow up to become the man known as Jon Stewart. Cartman on the other hand despises the man, accusing the man of showing liberal bias. Jon tends to prefer the former, but he also allowed Cartman to speak his mind in his show from time to time.
  • He may be on the left side of the political spectrum and does enjoy dissing conservatives on Fox News, but do not convince him to carry that sort of news over to actual news channels. CNN learned a painful lesson when they tried to get Jon Stewart to endorse their new show Crossfire it was cancelled shortly after his appearance after he bashed the very concept of the show.
  • Jon Stewart's career rose to its height by making fun of George W. Bush and his vice president Dick Cheney. This did not sit well with many followers of Hank Hill who revered the former president. Hank chimed in, stating he thought that Dubya was treated unfairly during that time. With that said, he does admit that some of his jokes are funny.
  • Bandit Keith had a more hostile reaction. He demanded to be put on the show to give the comedian a piece of his mind. Keith only served to embarass himself even more, with the resulting video scoring millions on viewers.
  • The fact that there is even a tiny chance for Commie Nazis to ascend drives him up the wall. Jon can't comprehend how such a being can ever make it to the Pantheon, not because they are Obviously Evil but because such a thing should not exist given how diametrically opposed the two groups are. One can be sure he will shoot down any candidate to ascend on that regard.
  • One wouldn't think as such, but Jon Stewart is familiar with the workings of the WWE. Seth Rollins came by the give the man a hug. It was Jon's interference that helped Seth win the US Championship at Summerslam 2015. Shortly afterwards, John Cena came by regarding the same match... and performed an Attitude Adjustment on Jon Stewart through his own table. That was for costing him said title. It helps that Jon Stewart was a New Yorker, a common enemy of those from Boston.

    The Man with No Name 
The Man With No Name, High Prophet of Spaghetti Westerns (Joe, Manco, Blondie, The Stranger, The Hunter, The Bounty Killer, Americano, Mister Sudden Death, Señor Ninguno, Nameless, No Name, The Spirit of the West)

  • Rivals: Yosemite Sam, Erron Black, Hol Horse, Boba Fett, Gondar the Bounty Hunter
  • Opposed by: Gwangi
  • Odd Friendship with: Dirty Harry, Jotaro Kujo, Rango
  • Mysterious Protector towards: Jill McBain
  • A drifter of few words, this man has traveled across the wild west visiting a number of towns. He is easily identifiable through his hat, his poncho, and the fact that he is quick on the draw with his revolver. While he may be just looking for a bounty that can provide good money, he has a sense of honor and many of the people he has gone up against are morally reprehensible in different ways.
  • In his travels, he somehow managed to find a place that is unlike any other place he had been to. He decided to stay at what is known as the Pantheon as it provided plenty of opportunities to take on jobs for money and possibly clean out whatever corruption there is at that place. That said, his temple is merely a place for him to rest since he still travels frequently to other places.
  • Despite what his moniker would suggest, he has been given a few nicknames from some of the people that he has encountered in his travels. That said, none of those nicknames are considered to be his official name. The various other aliases he has don't count as well. And neither do the nicknames that some of the deities came up for him as well.
  • Before becoming a bounty hunter, he was originally a ranch hand that had to put up with another, crueler hand known as Carvell. Conflict later lead to a shootout with the latter hand getting killed. The Man with No Name then became a bounty hunter after it was discovered that Carvell was a wanted man, alongside the fact that the bounty reward for Monk Carver (who Carvell actually was) was higher than the pay at the ranch.
  • Gwangi, a dinosaur, is rather antagonistic towards him given that it had come into conflict against cowboys in the past. While he feels a bit more indifferent than anything at the fact that a creature that he largely didn't know about until told about it hates him, he is willing to take down the dinosaur if given a job to do so, even if such a thing is potentially more difficult than his normal targets.
  • One of his more notable encounters throughout his travels was with Dirty Harry, a man who looked a lot like the cowboy. Both are anti-heroic figures who rely on a revolver as their main weapon, but while the cowboy goes into action whenever he is offered to take on something, the cop is much more active in trying to deliver justice. In any case, the two hold brief conversations with each other whenever they meet.
  • He didn't really expect to have much in common with Jotaro Kujo, but his meeting with him proved otherwise. Putting aside the fact that The Man with No Name is a wandering bounty hunter and Jotaro is a Japanese man with a supernatural fighting style that has encountered a lot of weird things, the two are very capable men that are able to keep a cool head even when things become serious. Jotaro even quoted (or at least paraphrased) one of the cowboy's lines at one point.
    • Jotaro also told him during one of their talks that there was a bounty hunter who had a bit of a cowboy-like attitude and a revolver that tried targeting Jotaro and his group in the past (Jean-Pierre Polnareff had a talk with Jotaro after the latter's initial meeting with The Man with No Name and brought up one of such pursuers to Jotaro). Not long after, The Man with No Name went around looking for that person and it brought him to Hol Horse. An improptu duel ensued and it ended with Hol Horse getting shot. The Man with No Name told Hol Horse that had it not been for the latter's cockiness, he would have been a formidable adversary (especially consider what Hol Horse is capable of...in theory, at least).
  • It was obvious that he wasn't the only bounty hunter around and heard about some others in his field, regardless of the time period that they came from (and in Lockdown's case, size). Oddly enough, some see Boba Fett as something of a futuristic counterpart for the cowboy due to their stoicism and how, of all things, the cowboy's poncho and Boba Fett's armor have a similar color scheme.
  • Being a cowboy, he encountered others like him during his travels and is fairly good acquaintances with much of them even if their meetings only happen infrequently to begin with. In particular, he sees Jesse McCree as having a lot in common with him.
    • He also heard that there was an outlaw or two running around, though he considers Yosemite Sam to be more of a nuisance compared to the much more serious threats The Man with No Name had originally gone up against.
  • Roland is familiar with the concept of alternate worlds, so it didn't surprise him he had many similar traits with the Man With No Name though he chalks it up to being a coincidence. His Improbable Aiming Skills has the other man beat, but he still gives a bit of respect for the cowboy. Just don't try and claim that he is an Expy.
  • While the two generally don't meet up with each other under normal circumstances, he has served as a bit of a protector towards Jill McBain. It's understandable, considering that Jill has gone through a lot of hell originally (and that her options to defend herself are limited) and that The Man with No Name will help someone whenever necessary (like what happened when he met a family that was caught between a war between rival gangs).
  • Has grown fond of Rango, who reveres him and calls him "The Spirit of the West". The chameleon even inspires the mostly quiet Man with no Name to deliver words of wisdom such as "You don't know that you gotta choice, son. No man can walk out on his own story."

  • Complicated Relations: Walt Disney, Superman
  • Confused by: The Kancolle dieties
  • Avoids: The House of Insects
  • Private Snafu enlisted in the United States Army in 1943 and had a stunning military career... suffering one glorious disaster after another at the hands of either his enemies, or by his own incompetence. At the end of the day though it didn't matter, as the dimwitted Private's antics served to educate new army recruits in what NOT to do while enlisted. For that, as well as being among the most recognizable Wartime Cartoon characters, he was brought to the Pantheon to share in a boatload of new adventures... and more blunders to boot.
  • When he first ascended, Snafu was welcomed by the Looney Tunes, who also served in the War effort. Bugs Bunny lead the Private to his temple, revealing along the way that he had vouched for his ascension and apologized for the time he snuck into Snafu's handbag during a gas mask drill. Since that first day, Snafu has been welcomed into the Looney Tune inner circle, all sharing their own harrowing and wacky adventures both on and off the front lines.
    • Despite also serving in the war effort, Snafu is wary around the deities of Walt Disney. This may have to do with Walt originally wanting to do the original short films and owning the rights to them in the process. That said, the Private did become a good friend with Donald Duck and the Three Stooges as all five fought in both the European and Pacific theatres.
  • Upon ascending, Snafu was accompanied by a strange, cigar chomping pixie; one Technical Fairy First Class. He serves as the Private's Herald and acts as a conscience, helping to teach the valuable lessons needed to survive on the battlefield. Sometimes it works... and sometimes it really, really doesn't.
  • Many have asked what the name Snafu exactly means. He's been quiet about it but eventually, after much persuasion, he gave in and confessed. Turns out it's a military code that translates out to "Situation Normal All... All Fouled Up." The same is used for Snafu's two brothers. There's Fubar Note  and Tarfu. Note 
  • War has changed since 1945 and with it has come a whole new generation of dangerous warriors to tangle with. Snafu though was none the wiser and believes as long as there are Axis forces still lingering about the war is not finished. This mindset did lead him to try and challenge Sundowner to prove that his fighting tools were the best around. It all went downhill from there.
  • Unsurprisingly, the ascended Nazis of the Pantheon were not too happy to hear another American soldier had ascended, even if this particular soldier is not the most threatening of the bunch. In fact, all of them have shown the poor Private the ropes and made him look like a complete waste of soldier material. But even as they beat him into the ground, Sanfu has not given up; he'll continue to fight the good fight no matter what.
    • Also unsurprisingly, EVERY single deity of Japanese descent despises Private Snafu due to how they're portrayed in the various shorts. This is especially true with Seita, who is not only very patriotic towards the Japanese empire of his time, but also lost his mother in the Allied firebombing of Kobe. His sister Setsuko, being younger, doesn't share her brother's hatred of Snafu, and finds him to be rather goofy.
  • Almost every single American/Allied soldier present in the Pantheon keeps themselves well and faraway from Private Snafu, whom they consider to be a sign of bad luck. Figure such as Richard Winters, Ronald Spier John Basilone, and even Cole Phelps don't want anything to do with him. In fact, the only one who has tried to help out the poor Private is Captain America, who was once considered unfit for service and has a soft spot for the soldiers he fought alongside. As a result, Cap and Agent Carter have been training Snafu in proper military etiquette, in the hopes that one day he will become fit for proper military service. Progress has been slow but it has been made.
  • While he may not be the smartest soldier in the service, there are times where Sanfu has learned from his mishaps and manages to make it through some of his encounters. It was thanks to his training in the care and use of the gas mask that Snafu survived in the House of Toxicity, much to the ire of the deities there. But he still can't keep a secret to save his life. The last time that happened to him, Snafu ended up being torpedoed straight to Hell. Literally. As a result, The Spy has a field day trailing the Private around the Pantheon and keeping tabs on every single detail he lets slip.
    • His tendency to let secrets slip is also the reason why Snafu is banned from drinking while on duty. It's for his own good.
  • Once, Snafu took up the role of Snafuperman, only to almost bomb the White House, thinking it was Berlin, and attacking an American tank - with George S. Patton inside no less - while under the assumption it was a Japanese tank. The real Superman was not at all impressed, and agreed with the Private on looking over the maps and field manuals for later reference.
  • Despite working alongside Dr. Seuss during the war years, even adopting his rhyming speech from time to time, Sanfu's relationship with the author did become strained due to Seuss regretting how he depicted the Japanese in old political cartoons. This also extends to Seuss's own characters, with Horton the Elephant and the Lorax opposing the Private's very strong war stance.
  • Considering how most of them are personifications of naval warships from his time period, Snafu was completely confused by the Deities of Kantai Collection. For their part, the girls keep their distance from the Private, not wanting their battles to be hindered by his incompetence.
  • After ending up on a malaria-ridden mosquito's menu, Snafu has made it his goal to avoid the House of Insects at all costs. This is somewhat ironic as none of the gods there are not even mosquitos... but they still can sting and the Private doesn't want to find out if he's allergic that way.
  • He gets easily distracted by gorgeous women, resulting in almost being banned from the House of Love altogether. Luckily, Kyu Sugardust stepped in and offered to make him and Technical Fairy First Class her clients. After all, being a soldier automatically makes him more desirable for the ladies... unless they go AWOL, or are psychotic. Kyu is careful about it though; if Snafu puts her, himself, and/or her other clients into trouble, she might have to reconsider her choice. But so far, things are looking well.

Quasideities

    Akari, Aika and Alice 
Akari Mizunashi, Aika S. Granzchesta and Alice Carroll, Goddesses of Soothing Anime and Manga (Akari: Aquamarine, Sideburns; Aika: Rosen Queen, Gachapen; Alice: Orange Princess, Junior)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ariacast1.jpg
L-R: Aika, Akari and Alice. Also with them are their respective Presidents Hime, Aria and Maa.
  • Quasideities
  • Symbol: A gondola
  • Theme Song: "Undine", "Euphoria", "Spirale"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Iyashikei, gondoliers in a Venice expy, admiration for the beautiful world around them, Rousseau Was Right, names starting with an A
  • Domains: Mars, Venice, Relaxation, Travel, Water
  • Heralds: Their mentors (Alicia, Akira and Athena), apprentices (Ai, Azusa and Anya) and presidents (Aria, Hime and Maa)
  • Allies: Latios and Latias, The Diver, The Robed Figure, Kino, Catbus, Totoro, Polar Bear Café, Kiki, G36, SAT8, Hidamari Apartment Tenants
  • Many years into the future, Mars will have gone through a terraforming process that rendered it inhabitable, although its ice caps melted more than expected and flooded most of the planet, causing it to be renamed Aqua. On Earth, renamed Manhome, Venice will have been completely flooded many centuries ago, prompting its recreation on Aqua as Neo-Venezia. What is something that's necessary in any serious attempt at replicating Venice? Gondoliers. That is what the bright-eyed Akari Mizunashi immigrated from Manhome into Aqua to become. Employed by the small Aria Company, she trained hard under her mentor Alicia to become a full-fledged gondolier, or Undine, and made friends with Aika and Alice from the larger rival companies Himeya and Orange Planet. Despite their hard work, Akari and her friends always make time to sit back and just enjoy the beauty that Aqua has to offer.
  • At the end of another day of guiding tourists around Neo-Venezia, Akari noticed some translucent shapes flying around the waterways. President Aria was with her and was so freaked out, he fell in the water, but one of the shapes caught him and put him back on the boat. Filled with wonder at the creatures, Akari offered to show them around Neo-Venezia the next day. She did so, bringing along Aika and Alice, who kept a healthy amount of skepticism, even though they know Akari has a knack for running into strange things. At some point one creature grabbed Akari's hand and dragged her along, and Aika and Alice followed to prevent their friend's possible kidnapping. The entourage went through a tunnel in a relatively deserted part of the city, at the end of which they found themselves in the Pantheon, whose beauty rivals that of Neo-Venezia. The creatures undid their invisibility and revealed themselves to be Latios and Latias (but you probably already knew that), who wanted to visit Neo-Venezia as it reminded them of Alto Mare, and since Akari was kind enough to show them the city which she obviously loved, they wanted to show her the Pantheon in return.
  • All three Undines wound up instated as the goddesses of Iyashikei for the soothing optimism of their tale. The Hidamari Tenants held that trope originally, but they decided it was a good idea to take Puni Plush instead as it was closer to the arts and crafts they work in, and they thought Neo-Venezia sounded like a great place to relax and find inspiration. Besides that, the Main House rather liked the idea of hiring gondoliers in the Pantheon to serve as tour guides. The House of Travel in particular rejoiced at the new ascension and promised their safety would be ensured. Akari was rather excited at the new horizons that had just opened up and Jumped at the Call, while Aika and Alice were somewhat more reserved (actually Alice was pretty stoked at being a goddess, but thinks admitting it would be immature), though they still accepted the position to make sure Akari doesn't get herself in trouble and also to represent their respective companies. The Undines remain close friends with Latios and Latias, who often accompany them and watch over them, whether they're on the job or on an adventure.
  • Naturally they have their temple in an area of the House of Narrative that's near the water. The temple itself resembles the cozy Aria Company building Akari made her home in. Throughout the year the temple and the area surrounding it get hit with occasional shallow floods. The three Undines don't have a problem with this, as they were already used to the Acqua Alta from their world which affected all of Neo-Venezia. Akari enjoys it in her own way as she likes to take the occasion to go barefoot. Now she has more reason to enjoy it as the temple often gets visits from small aquatic creatures residing in the Pantheon during these floods.
  • Due to their job they can easily be found at the aquatic-themed Houses and other watery areas during the day, either showing people around the area or transporting them. They've been warned that there are a lot more things to watch out for in the Pantheon than in their world of origin, including underwater, warnings which, being professional gondoliers, they take to heart, so fortunately there haven't been any bad incidents involving them as of yet.
  • They have quite a few Heralds, but the ones who are consistently with them are their presidents. By presidents, we mean the cats who serve as their companies' mascots: Aria, Hime and Maa. It's a tradition on Aqua for gondolier companies to have cats with blue eyes because it's believed they bring good luck to the workers, so they are affectionately titled presidents.
  • Akari has a knack for attracting the supernatural; most notably, she was favored by the Cat King, who's something like the guardian spirit of Neo-Venezia. Although this faded as she got older, that knack seems to be as strong as before in the Pantheon, with Catbus developing an interest in her much like the Cat King. Due to her open mind, Akari is able to perceive him as easily as a child can. This is also true of Totoro, who Akari eventually met from hanging out with Catbus.
  • The Diver became an occasional companion to the Undines as they steer their gondolas through the Pantheon's waters. The Diver and the Undines enjoy showing each other new interesting places they have found. In the Undines' land-borne adventures, they've also come across the Robed Figure, who likewise enjoys a good trip in search of undiscovered vistas and phenomena. That both the Diver's and the Robed Figure's worlds are at least partially ruined is also something they unexpectedly have in common with the Undines, as their Earth is not exactly a vibrant planet anymore.
  • The traveler Kino was immediately interested in Neo-Venezia upon hearing of it. The Undines were glad to guide her in her visit there. Seeing what a peaceful place it was and how incredibly kind all the people were made Kino want to break her three-day rule, but alas, she thought it was probably for the best that someone like her, who isn't supposed to exist in that universe in the first place, moved on to the next stop. The Undines hope that she'll come again some time in the future since three days is not nearly enough to experience all Neo-Venezia has to offer. Kino hopes so as well, even if she doesn't dare say it out loud. Besides that, she's very happy there are deities like Akari, Aika and Alice.
  • One of the Undines' favorite places to take a break is the Polar Bear Café, with Akari finding it wonderful that there's a café run by animals and the three girls in general loving the pleasant company of Polar Bear, Panda and Penguin. Comparisons between President Maa and Panda's similar appearances (down to the practically invisible eyes) have arised, especially with Maa seeming as interested in biting Panda's belly (much to his distress) as she does Aria's. Meanwhile, Aika has bonded with Penguin in particular, given how they serve as the minders to their peculiar friends and their penchant for reacting to weird events with snark.
  • When they spotted Kiki riding a broom for the first time, Akari as usual talked about how wonderful it was that the Pantheon even has witches flying around on brooms and really wanted to meet her. They did so and found out that Kiki, though a witch, is really more of a delivery person, which reminded the Undines of the Sylphs back home; they're the airborne delivery people in their world, and ride hoverbikes for their job. Kiki was very interested in this information and in hearing more about Neo-Venezia, which seems to be as scenic a place as the city she lives in.
  • The idea of riding gondolas proved to be an interesting one to G36 and SAT8, with the latter being particularly excited (likely due to her Italian origins; it must feel nice to her to see a staple of her country). Since their universe is a war-torn one, just kicking back and enjoying slowly drifting over the water in the company of three very pleasant gondoliers is a nice change of pace for them. The Undines are glad to be able to soothe the souls of the two warriors.

  • Opposed by: Eric Cartman
  • Avoid: The House of Family (for Elisabet)
  • Alma is a nurse charged with taking care of Elisabet, an actress who made a conscious decision of never speaking out of disillusionment with society. The two lived together in isolation for a while, and as their friendship grew and then soured, at some point things started getting really strange for Alma as the similarities between her and her charge caused her personal identity to become conflated with Elisabet's. Their story offers no easy answers as to what exactly is going on with them, especially since there's a lot of strange, seemingly random imagery accompanying it. The strangeness and the undeniable artistic flair of their film caused them to be deified as arthouse film goddesses.
  • Because Elisabet is mute and has a strong dislike of being around people in general, it's mostly Alma who deals with the affairs of their temple.
  • Elisabet does speak up on rare occasions, but only when it's profoundly meaningful to do so. And even then it might be Alma hallucinating and externalizing the hallucinations.
  • Deities such as Shinji Ikari, Utena Tenjou and Lain Iwakura imediately latched on to them since the tales they hail from are of a similarly confusing and highly symbolic nature.
  • Carl Jung immediately took an interest in them when he saw that their situation had much in common with his branch of psychology. He was also compelled to introduce them to some other deities that he's been observing for the same reason (you know which ones). Their issues don't make a lick of sense to Freud though. This has aggravated his rivalry with Jung.
  • Igor and Philemon strongly suspect that Elisabet is Alma's shadow. In case it's true, they are eager to offer them guidance so they can merge back together and a new Persona user can be born, which would be a great asset to Philemon.
  • It does annoy Alma and Elisabet slightly that when people talk about "the Persona deities", 9 times out of 10 people mean the SMT ones.
  • Due to the prominence of the SMT deities, most of the Pantheon has come to believe that Alma and Elisabet must indeed be the same person, much to Alma's despair. But not all deities subscribe to this opinion. One such deity is Roxas, who identifies with Alma's desire to remain her own person, since he didn't want to be just Sora's Nobody.
  • They very unexpectedly managed to make friends with some Merchandise-Driven deities. Most of the Pantheon were expecting them to be allergic to such deities or something. Kyurem thinks they are incomplete without each other much like it is incomplete without Reshiram and Zekrom, so it sympathizes with them. Omnimon and Kamen Rider Double, as composite beings born from The Power of Friendship, hope to serve as examples to inspire Alma and Elisabet.
  • Cartman holds art movies in contempt. He likes to say that Alma and Elisabet are the Goddesses of Gay Cowboys Eating Pudding. Alma is completely offended, but Elisabet finds it Actually Pretty Funny.
  • Sometimes take walks with Calvin and Hobbes, wherein Alma and Calvin ponder various existential questions. They've also all been seen playing Calvinball together. Yes, really. Alma claims it's therapeutic for Elisabet, who seems to understand the "rules" better than her. Calvin, for his part, is impressed that the first 6 minutes of their film include a hand getting nailed down, a sheep getting its throat slit, a tarantula, and a boy waking up in a morgue.
  • While the deities of the House of Health and Diseases are displeased with what they perceive as a lack of professionalism in Alma's part in regards to Elisabet, they do call upon her to help out on days when the House gets particularly crowded with patients.
  • Nurse Ratched insists that if she was given charge of Elisabet, she'd be talking in no time. Having learned about Ratched's particular brand of care, Elisabet is terrified of her. Luckily for her, Alma keeps refusing because whatever else happened between them, Elisabet is still her patient and she doesn't want her to suffer like that. Nurse Ratched says that she'll bring Alma around to her way of being a nurse yet.
  • Elisabet will admit (as well as a mute person can) that she isn't at all a good mother, but she can't stand the Child Abuse Supporters and being compared to them. After all, she did send her unwanted son to be raised by relatives who actually could care for him when she couldn't bring herself to. Her relationship with the House of Family as a whole still isn't great.
  • Respected by Lucifer because the kind of cinema they have domain over defies conventions and the status quo. YHVH hates them for the same reason, finding a good deal of films artistiques to be horribly blasphemous (like so), and also because their boss won't stop questioning His existence and His reasons.
  • The Jedi and Spock took pity on them and sometimes help them calm their turbulent psyches with the help of the Force or the Vulcan mind meld. The Care Bears also "treat" them occasionally.
  • Because Alma and Elisabet are psychological messes to begin with, their strongest allies do their best to shield them from the likes of Arael, Liebert and the twisted psychologists Hannibal Lecter and Angus Bumby. No one wants to know what Alma and Elisabet would look like if they were Mind Raped or pushed off the deep end.
  • As a patron of the arts, Palpatine actually likes them. But after the Jedi warned them of the corrupting powers of the Dark Side that Palpatine wields, Alma and Elisabet decline his patronage. Or having anything to do with him in general.

  • In an unnamed Japanese highschool, there resided six students; Chiyo, a bright, cheerful Child Prodigy, Sakaki, a reserved, shy cat lover, Tomo, a mischievous troublemaker, Yomi, a studious girl, Osaka, a spacy girl with a bizarre track of mind, and Kagura, a tomboyish athlete. Together, the girls would go through their daily lives doing all sorts of things, like doing schoolwork, hanging out with eachother, play pranks, joke around, and generally do normal teen girl things.
  • Applies to the group:
    • For a long time, only Chiyo, Sakaki, and Osaka were goddesses in the Pantheon. One day, they decided it would be better to bring the other three friends into the Pantheon and unite under one title. After some negotiations, the Court of the Gods ascended Tomo, Yomi, and Kagura into the Pantheon and united the six students into one house. All six girls hugged eachother after the other three ascended into the Pantheon, glad to be reunited after such a long time.
    • All six of the girls became friends to Yotsuba Koiwai, and they often act as her playmates and babysitters when Mr. Koiwai's away. Of the six, Yotsuba is closest with Chiyo, as they are the closest to eachother's age, and Yotsuba is amazed at Chiyo's intelligence and wishes to be as smart as her one day. She thinks of Yomi as a cool, smart big sister, and likes to ask her questions. Yotsuba initially thought that Sakaki was rather scary because of her height, but warmed up her her after seeing her kind, cat-loving nature. She loves playing with Tomo, Osaka, and Kagura, with Tomo's prankster nature, Osaka's colorful imagination, and Kagura's sportiness providing hours of fun and enjoyment for Yotsuba.
    • Every summer, the girls gear up and go traveling to some place as tourists. It could be a deserted island, it could be a bustling city, It could be a place in the mortal planes, it could even be a House they don't often go often, but you can expect them to go traveling and make memories during those hot summer months.
    • Of course, they have met many of the schoolgirl groups in the Pantheon. As they enrolled in the Elysium Academy, they befriended Yui Ichii, Yuzuko Nonohara, Yukari Hinata, Nanako Usami and Yukari Kohinata, who reside in the very academy as Goddesses. They also met Taiga Fujimura and Yoshinoya-sensei there, who reminded them of their own teacher, Yukari Tanizaki. Yoshinoya-sensei introduced them to her students, the Tenants of the Hidamari Apartments, who they also befriended and sometimes like to look at their drawings. They sometimes play tennis with the Teekyuu club, although they (except Osaka) get really confused by the antics they get into. They became regular visitors to Houkago Tea Time and μ's' concerts ever since they heard their music. They also met up with Konata Izumi and her friends Kagami and Tsukasa Hiiragi, with them noting they're rather eccentric, although still pleasant to be around. They were intrigued by the Anglerfish Team's sensha-do sport, and want to try it out sometime. the Civilian Antarctica Expedition Team succeeded in going to Antarctica, but a bit saddended when they heard of Shirase's real reason for going there. They felt a bit bad for the School Life Club's unfortunate circumstance, noting that living through an actual Zombie Apocalypse wouln't be very fun. They enjoy sharing cool cultural trivia with Alice Cartelet and Shinobu Oomiya, even if Osaka brings up strange jokes from time to time.
  • Exclusive to Chiyo:
    • Some of Chiyo's first friends in the Pantheon happen to be Hello Kitty, Yutaka Kobayakawa, Rena Ryuuguu, Molly Hayes, and Dizzy. When Rena first saw Chiyo, she immediately went into her "I'm Taking Her Home with Me!" mode, which resulted in her ending up in a tug of war between her and Chiyo's friends for custody of Chiyo. After calming down, Rena and Chiyo became friends. She enjoys Hello Kitty and Yutaka's company, though she was flummoxed whether or not Kitty really was a talking cat. The interactions between the three is said to be too sweet to handle for some Deities. Dizzy was initially hesitant to meet Chiyo, nervous that her wings might scare Chiyo off, but Chiyo reassured her that she wasn't scary.
      • Although, if there's any deity she avoids, it's Tsubame Kamoi. She finds the woman's obsessive behaviour around her to be rather overbearing, though Tsubame is too enamored by her cuteness to notice Chiyo's mild discomfort around her. That's not to say Chiyo dislikes her, it's just she gets overwhelmed whenever Tsubame gushes over her.
    • Formerly the Goddess of Kawaisa, she still keeps in touch with the House of Happiness, especially because Yotsuba has a position there. She gets along with most of the deities there, such as finding Uni-Kitty to be adorable and enjoying music with Wander and Darunia. Nerose Satanael, aloof as he is, keeps to himself, and Chiyo finds him intimidating, so they don't talk much.
    • Chiyo is incredibly smart for age, so smart she was transferred to highschool immediately after graduating elementary school! It was inevitable that she would meet up and befriend the other child geniuses of the Pantheon life Yue Ayase, Jimmy Neutron, Lisa Simpson, and Matilda Wormwood. Chiyo is amazed by Yue's magic prowess and Matilda's psychic powers, with her imagining what she would be like if she had cool powers to go with her smarts. Chiyo's impressed that Jimmy Neutron can create many inventions with his scientific knowledge, with her wanting to try them out herself. She likes talking to Lisa Simpson about anything that comes up to mind. On the other hand, she has a hard time getting along with Kira Daidouji and Stewie Griffin, who use their impressive smarts for more devious and malicious ends, so both sides don't see eye to eye often.
    • Chiyo heavily reminds Bryan Mills of his own daughter, so he sometimes tags along with her to provide company and security to her. Chiyo likes him, seeing him as a substitute father-figure as her own parents aren't around in the Pantheon. Needless to say, trying to harm Chiyo will end up in a very pissed off Mills hunting down the foolish straggler.
    • Chiyo has a pet Great Pyrenees dog named Tadakichi-san, who she has brought with her when she ascended. She often takes him outside for nice strolls around the Pantheon's more peaceful areas. The three gods who became enamoured with Tadakichi-san include Xion, Dorothy Gale, Jonathan Joestar, and John Wick. All three of them find Tadakichi-san to be a good boy, and Chiyo lets them play with her dog whenever they can. She was incredibly saddened to hear the tragic fates of Jonathan's and John's own dogs. Chiyo lets Tadakichi-san play with Dorothy's dog Toto, and find eachothers dogs to be cute. She also gained the affection of Clifford, and likes riding on his back because of his gargantuan size.
    • Chiyo, being the prodigy she is, is able to make her own meals, and the food she cooks are very delectable and tasty. Because of this, she sometimes goes to the house of Food to cook meals there. She befriended other young cooks like Soma Yukihara, Megumi Tadakoro, Ryou Machiko, Kirin Morino, and Shiina and sometimes eat eachother's meals, which often ends up with them tearing up and complementing eachother.
    • No one in the Pantheon is certain on who exactly are Chiyo's parents. Some dream dwellers, like Madotsuki, Haruto Tsukishiro, the Inception Crew, NiGHTS, Bedman, and Princess Luna claim that they met a strange talking cat-like creature with the voice of Norio Wakamoto who claims to be Chiyo's dad, but people are still skeptical of those claims. Chiyo also doesn't talk much about her parents, so obtaining info about them is rather difficult.
    • Chiyo became afraid of her teacher's crazy driving after having to experience it first hand during a certain summer vacation. Because of this, she will never accept any rides coming from Spongebob Squarepants, Irisviel von Einzbern, and the West Coast Cabbies because of their similarly chaotic driving. She's polite to them when it doesn't come to driving, so she doesn't hold much of a grudge against them.
  • Exclusive to Sakaki:
    • Naturally, Sakaki often spends her time in the House of Felines to pet the many cats there. She adores Meowth, Firestar, and Catbus,in which she's amazed by Firestar's anecdotes of ThunderClan and his nine lives, and Catbus' ability to be a living bus. She was initially confused to see Len there in her human form, but started petting her when she turned into a cat, much to her embarrassment. She finds Tiger to be quite puzzling, with his vegetarian diet despite being a carnivore, and finds Garfield a bit hard to interact with because of his grumpy attitude. She was awed by Simba and Eugene's bravery and majesty, and was a bit hesitant on meeting them first because of her shyness, but both of them told her not to be afraid of them. She was also amazed by Bastet's role as the goddess of cats, and Bastet finds her to be an interesting human. On the other hand, she's afraid of the Hyena's and Katz because of their malicious nature, and would rather avoid than pet them. She's also cautious with Teostra and Lunastra because of their power and fears she could get harmed.
    • Has an understandably tense relationship with Jerry. The two have an uneasy truce due to the fact that because of his Karmic Trickster nature, Jerry usually only inflicts his wrath on a cat after being provoked first. But, like many cat lovers, Sakaki's sympathies are usually with Tom when the two of them clash.
    • Even Eric Cartman respects her kindness towards cats, as he himself went so far as to hide all the cats of South Park inside his own home after they became outlawed for their urine proving to be an influential drug.
    • Sasaki has a pet Iriomote cat named Maya, who she first met when she and the girls went to Iriomote. When Maya's mother was killed by getting run over, Maya traveled far to seek Sakaki. Like Tadakichi-san, Sakaki has brought Maya with her to the Pantheon. A few cat lovers, like Alphonse Elric, Jyushimatsu Matsuno, and surprisingly, Asuka Langley Soryu, like to pet Maya, which Sakaki allows. Sakaki also met Ichigo Momomiya, who can transform into a cat-themed magical girl because she has the genes of an Iriomote cat in her DNA. Sasaki was amazed that Ichigo could do such things, and Ichigo finds Maya cute too.
    • One day, Lord Shen had caught Sakaki's Iriomote mountain cat kitten Maya spying on his scheming. He decided to make an example and captured the tiny feline. It was Bagheera the panther who came to the rescue, managing to fight off the Peacock long enough to escape with the kitten in tow. Sakaki was so grateful for the Panther's help, becoming close friends afterward. In fact, Sakaki often turns to Bagheera to watch over Maya when she's away at school.
    • As the former Goddess of Cat Lovers, Sakaki still makes visits to the House of Beast Handlers. She feels a kinship with Hazel Levesque and Eliza Thornberry, being young female animal lovers. She's interested in knowing more about bugs thanks to Sig, Agitha, and Shino Aburame, even if bugs creep her out sometimes. She and May-Chang took their time gushing over their own cute pets. She appreciates Steve Irwin and Iwashiro Tesshou's kindness towards animals, and they thought her Iriomote cat was adorable. She's appalled by Rusty's incompetence with handling his Pokemon to the point of killing them, and is unnerved by Caim because of his violent nature.
    • She has even managed to gain the respect of Beerus, believe it or not. Despite being a god of destruction, Beerus was flattered by Sakaki's amazement at such a powerful feline being, and as a result she is one of the few humans in the Pantheon he bears no ill will towards.
    • Hearing about the "witches have magic cats" stereotype, Sakaki met up with two magic-using girls with magic cats; Sabrina Spellman with Salem Saberhagen, a powerful warlock sealed in the form of a cat, and Megumin's Chomusuke, a flying, fire-breathing cat. She was quite enamoured with both cats and petted them both, despite Salem's protests. She now sometimes visits them to see their cats.
    • Sakaki is sometimes seen as an intimidating figure by her classmates because of her tall stature and quiet nature. Because of this, she gets along with Makoto Kino and Mai Kawasumi as they were also ostracized by their peers in similar ways, as Makoto's height, strength, and Bully Hunter tendencies made people see her as a violent delinquent, and Mai's demon hunting responsibilities made her lurk around at night, making people think she's also an irresponsible delinquent.
  • Exclusive to Tomo:
    • Tomo is known for her incredibly large competitive streak; she can and will turn anything into a competition, from breast sizes, terrible test scores, and cooking. It was inevitable that she would take her competitive spirit into the Pantheonic daily life. She has become strong rivals with Undyne and Sylvia, who are also competition freaks, and frequently compete against eachother in many fields like cooking and racing. While Komaru Naegi isn't very competitive most of the time, she does get very fired-up when it comes to puzzles, which makes Tomo engage her in puzzling competitions.
    • Tomo often likes to spend her time pulling off pranks and practical jokes on other deities just for the fun of it. She sometimes teams up with other pranksters like the Sonozaki siblings, Bart Simpson, and the Weasley brothers to pull of some super tricky pranks on other deities, though she is not above pulling pranks on them too.
    • When not playing pranks or trying to compete with others, Tomo likes to slack around not doing anything. Sometimes she hangs around with Yoh Asakura, Robbie Rotten and Belphegor as she likes that they also appreciate slacking off. Yoh is considering showing off his shaman powers to her, Belphegor likes playing video games and eating snacks with Tomo, and Robbie likes seeing another person who values being lazy.
    • It might come off as a surprise, but Tomo dreams of becoming a police officer someday. Because of this, she gets along with Chie Satonaka and Makoto Nijima, who also want to become police officers in the future. She also likes to go to the House of Justice, more specifically the House of Officers to meet up with the police officers of the Pantheon. She was quite impressed with the more heroic officers like Captain Holt, while shocked at the more dastardly officers like Manny Pardo.
    • Tomo is a big fan of Lupin III, so when she arrived in the Pantheon, she was excited to meet the characters from that series. To her disappointment, no one from that series were present in the Pantheon, although Lupin's grandfather, Arsene Lupin, was present in the Pantheon, much to her delight. Arsene was rather baffled to see a teenage girl gush over him, but decided to roll with it. Tomo is still waiting for Lupin and his crew to ascend so she can meet her idols.
  • Exclusive to Yomi:
    • Yomi is the academic of the group, as she is serious when it comes to studying and is one of the smartest members of the group. As such, she gets along with Twilight Sparkle, who also took her studies seriously, though she was a bit bewildered to see a purple talking alicorn in real life. She also befriended Hinagiku Katsura, who she compared to Sasaki in that they're both very skilled in both academia and athletics, though Hinagiku is more outgoing and extraverted than Sakaki. With Suzune Horikita, it was a tad bit more complicated as her aloof nature rubbed Yomi the wrong way, but eventually they warmed up to eachother as Yomi took her time with Suzune.
    • Yomi is... a bit sensitive regarding her weight, so she tries to go on diests as to lose weight, although she keeps relapsing into her Big Eater habits often. She managed to befriend other deities with weight-related issues; Darkness, who insists her weight comes from her armour and not her body, and Chun-Li, who refuses to tell others her true weight. Yomi does enjoy hanging out with them, although she is a bit shocked by Darkness' masoochism and believes Chun-Li's weight comes from her muscular strength and not fat.
    • While she is skilled in many aspects, singing is not one of them; ever since a certain karaoke night gone wrong, Yomi has been forbidden to sing at the House of Music again, much to her embarrassment.
    • Being the studious member of the group, she takes her studies seriously, to the point where she fears losing her exams would be detrimental to her future. Because of this, she is absolutely afraid of Baldi, who quickly gets violent whenevr someone gets even one math question wrong. She refuses to meet up with him, not wanting to be on the receiving end of his ruler.
      • On a side note, she is also afraid of Cicadas, and was mortified when she found out that a particular population were in the Pantheon. This made her swear to avoid the house of Insects at all costs.
  • Exclusive to Osaka:
    • Osaka is particularly infamous for her bizarre track of mind; she tends to say strange things and make bizarre assumptions of things. She managed to find some like-minded people in the Pantheon, like Mako Mankanshoku, Luna Lovegood, Taokaka, Homestar Runner, Rin Tezuka, Kilian Experience, and Lulu. She and her new friends like to talk and indulge in their odd mindsets; trying to follow their conversations is said to be an exersize in failure. That said, even she thinks Luna and Kilian's logic is bizarre even for her, but that makes it more fun for her. While Nana is not as eccentric as the others, Osaka gets along with her and thinks her psychic powers are pretty cool, which she erroneously thinks it comes from being a "lucky seven". Nana believes it's best she doesn't know the truth of Diclonii powers.
    • Osaka is prone to taking naps, even during class and in the most unexpected of places. Her dream self in the House of Dreams notably doesn't diverge from her real self, making it confusing when she really enters the House. This lead to her befriending other sleepyheads like Francesca Luccini and Mako Reizei, and sometimes they nap together.
    • Osaka also managed to befriend other deities who hail from the Osaka region like Ochaco Uraraka and Asuka Kazama, they also happen to be one of the few deities to call her by her proper name, Ayumu Kasuga. Ayumu likes Ochaco's Zero Gravity Quirk because she can float off the ground, and Asuka is currently training her to be better in PE class.
    • Despite giving up her title of the Goddess of Spaciness, Osaka still tends to wander into the House of Outlooks on Life, sometimes forgetting her temple isn't located there anymore. She gets along with Sam Gamgee, finding him nice to hang out with, and also enjoys Will's, Brenner's, Isabella's, Charlie Barkin's, and Megamind's company. The other gods of the house don't really care about her, not that she notices.
    • Osaka, being a lover of riddles, often visits the subhouse of Mind Games to ask and solve riddles. The Sphinx and the Riddler initially assumed that she'd be an easy victim, but quickly regretted that mistake when Osaka was able to flawlessly answer all their riddles correctly. Nowadays, they dread when Osaka comes up to them and asks them for a riddle.
    • One day, Johan Liebert approached her and asked her to chat with him. Osaka, not knowing who he is, accepted the offer. When the conversation ended, Johan was left extremely confused and frustrated, as he was unable to follow her strange train of logic and failed to break her. When Kenzo Tenma heard the news, he pulled Osaka over and told her to stay away from Johan, as he can and will try to learn ways to successfully break her. Osaka doesn't exactly get why, but she avoids Johan just in case, as he always coldly glares at her everytime he sees her.
  • Exclusive to Kagura:
    • As expected of a sports-minded individual, Kagura is usually seen at the House of Sports doing all kinds of activities like running, swimming, aerobics, and much more. Over there, she managed to get along with Makie Sasaki, another sports-loving (more specifically, gymnastics-loving) girl who isn't the best when it comes to academics. Both girls sometimes compete against eachother in gymnastics, with Makie usually winning.
    • Some deities have noticed that she shares some similarities with Homura of the Crimson Squad, as they are both hot-blooded, toboyish girls with tanned skin. Kagura decided to meet her, and they ended up becoming good friends as their personalities match up well, although Homura doesn't want Kagura to get involved in the dangerous life of the shinobi.
    • Being a sports-minded tomboy, it was inevitable that she would befriend other sports-minded/tomboyish deities like Rainbow Dash, Chie Satonaka, and Aoi Asahina. With Rainbow Dash, she was surprised to see a pegasus fly so fast, and aims to one day be as fast as her. With Chie, she feels a bit bad that Chie had her goubts on being a tomboy, but thankfully she resolved her angst, so they tend to play sports with eachother. She was very impressed with Aoi's swimming skills, and also likes to snack on donuts with her in their spare time.

  • Niko is a young child who lived in small rural village with their mother. One day, they woke up in an dark, empty house, where they found a large lightbulb, and found the ability to talk with a mysterious voice. Upon stepping outside, they find out that they were transported to a dying world whose sun has died and that they need to climb a tower to put the lightbulb, the new sun, on top to save the world. However, by placing the lightbulb in the tower, Niko will be unable to go home; the only way to go home is to smash the lightbulb, dooming the world. And even if Niko returns the light, the world will still die in the future.
  • Everyone was quite surprised when INH of all people stepped up to recommend someone for a spot in the Pantheon. The higher-ups were touched by Niko's story and decided to ascend them into the Pantheon. Niko emerged out of a door of bright light on the day of their ascension, and was overjoyed to meet INH again. They were surprised to see them in the flesh instead of just hearing their voice.
    • That said, Niko's been in the Pantheon already as a "High Priest" of the Patapon tribe, though they didn't really understand it and don't remember much of that time before their ascension proper.
  • Has gained the interest of the House Of Knowledge due to their connection with the mysterious INH, but no one can seem to get a consistent answer about what their real name is. Niko seems confused about everyone calling them "INH" all the time, even though they've heard Niko say their name many times. They don't seem to realize it's always a different name.
  • Nobody knows about Niko's gender, and Niko doesn't give out any answers when questioned about it. This lead to some comparisions with Crona and Mangle, who genders are also unknown. While Niko and Crona are on cordial terms with eachother, Niko's more wary of Mangle because of their somewhat violent nature, and hopes that they could "tame" them one day, believing that their violent nature is due to their programming.
  • Despite possessing feline traits like large, glowing, slitted eyes and triangular ears, Niko insists that they are a person and not a cat because they walk on two legs. As such, Niko is bit confused by Bastet and Puck, who are cats that also walk on two legs.
  • Niko is a big fan of planes, and was estatic when they took their first plane ride with Cedric during their adventure. Miles "Tails " Prower once told Niko of his own personal plane, the Tornado, and asked Niko if they wanted to ride on it. Niko accepted the offer and had a great time riding he plane and looking down on the Pantheon.
  • Niko and Klonoa initially got off to a rocky start, as Klonoa mistook them for Janga, a malicious dream-stealer. Thankfully, Niko managed to convince Knlonoa that they aren't the same person, which made Klonoa apologize to Niko for the misunderstanding. They became good friends and related to being brought over to an alternate world to save it and being torn over about leaving it when their adventure is done.
  • Being a curious individual, Niko likes to talk to other deities about the worlds they hail from. Niko is fascinated by the wide viarety of worlds every deity hail from, but is quite saddened by the more cynical and crapsack worlds. They managed to befriend other curious deities like Eru Chitanda, Curious George and Yotsuba Koiwai, and they talk about the many things they're curious about.
  • They were very impressed when they heard about the many worlds Sora saved, though Sora humbly insists he could never have done any of that without his friends. Despite this, Niko still looks up to Sora and enjoys hearing about the worlds he visited. Niko was also fascinated with Sora's personal spaceship, the Gummiship, and wishes to ride it one day.
  • As a fellow god transported to another world she initially saw as “not real”, Gwenpool thinks of Niko as “Me, except cuter and not violent”. She sees it as a personal mission to convince Niko of how awesome the Marvel universe is. Niko is not sure what to think about her, and is uncomfortable with Gwen’s apparent apathy towards her parents from her home reality.
    • Niko also encountered many other deities who were transported to other worlds. Like Niko, The Digisdestined, Takuto and Shiki, The Magic Knights, Kazuma Satou and Naofumi Iwatani were summoned specifically to save the world from a certain plight. Niko is on cordial relations with them because of their similar experiences, and Niko is curious to know about the worlds those deities were warped to.
  • As interesting as the Pantheon is, Niko likes to spend a significant amount of time in the countryside where they found a kindred spirit in Dorothy. Niko also gets along with Ness, as they suffer from homesickness as a result of journeying far away from home.
  • Tends to disagree with Neo on rogue AI, as the World Machine in Niko's world made a Heel–Face Turn after being "tamed" and Niko believes this is possible for other machines as well. Neo thinks Niko is just naive.
    • Niko visited the Subhouse of A.I. Personalities to know about more artificial intelligences in the Pantheon, and befrended Bastion, an Omnic who was able to become a peace-loving, curious being after years of being a weapon. However, Niko encountered some truly malicious AI in the house including Love Machine, Shodan, and Samaritan, who are unrepetant in their evil deeds.
    • Niko also opposes Zarya and Kiara Sessyoin for their negative views on robots and AI; more specifically, Zarya's dislike of Omnics because of being a soldier during the Omnic Crisis, and Kiara's belief that an AI is incapable of feeling love. Niko wants to convince them that robots and AI should be given a chance and not scorned, but both disagree with their viewpoints, feeling they're too naive.
  • Was surprised to find out INH is a god-like being in Tiz Arrior's/Yew Genealogia's, ICEY's, and Frisk's worlds as well, and guided them in much the same way. Niko was touched when he heard that Yew managed to save INH from deleting the game's save data because of the villain's manipulations. However, Niko was shocked that in Frisk's world, INH had the choice to slaughter everyone in the Underground, which they heavily disbelieve that INH could do such horrible things.
    • Niko also met up with Stefan Butler and Stanley, who were also guided by the player on their journey, but unlike Niko, they had many paths to choose from and were much more unfortunate than them. Niko feels bad for them because of their unluckiness and lack of freedom compared to themself. Niko also realized that the Narrator that has been guiding Stanley is kinda like the World Machine, in which they're strange entities who are trying to tell a story but keep failing due to circumstances, but found out that he's more belligerent and rude than INH, which makes Niko uncomfortable.
    • However, with Monika and White Face, it's a different story; instead of being guided/controlled by INH, they were trying to communicate directly with INH. While both of them did do rather dubious deeds, Niko feels sorry for them and thinks that they're just lonely and wanting companionship. Niko eventually met Monika in the flesh, and surprisingly got along with eachother. Monika told Niko that she's feeling better than before, and Niko's happy that she's not so troubled anymore. Niko is looking to befriend White Face and become his friend even if they seem malicious at a first glance.
  • Amaterasu, Ra, Helios, Princess Celestia, and Apollo respect Niko for their role in restoring the other world's sun, and showed up to them to personally give their gratitude. Niko was floored when they found out about the existance of gods and beings who are responsible for managing the sun, and became friends with them.
    • However, this doesn't extend to the Radiance, whose awakening corrupted the land and people of Hallownest. Needless to say, Niko dislikes that the Radiance brought ruin to the world by doing the opposite of what the other world Niko was sent to was suffering from; by bringing light to the world, the world was nearly ruined.
    • On the flipside, Niko dislikes gods such as Chernabog and Nightmare Moon who deliberately want to usher the world in endless nightime, given that the disaster they were trying to avert was caused by the lack of a sun. Chernabog and Nightmare Moon also oppose Niko for ending the endless night in their world.
  • While stargazing at the House of Time and Space, Niko encountered Robert Capa, and found out that he had a similar journey like them. In his world, the sun was dying, and to save it, he and his crew were sent off to space in a suicide mission to rejuvenate the sun. Niko expressed some sympathy that he couldn't survive his ordeal, but Capa told him to not worry about it, as in the end he managed to save his world. They managed to befriend eachother as they related to eachother's journey.
  • No, Niko is not Koichi Hirose in disguise, nor are they related to someone else named Ralsei. Niko's extremely confused about these bizarre rumors.
