    Flumpty Bumpty 
Flumpty Bumpty, God of Plot Immunity
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flumpty.png

  • Domains: Eggs, Kidnappings, Surreal Horror, Twisted Games
  • Heralds: Birthday Boy Blam, The Beaver, The Redman, Grunkfuss the Clown, The Owl, Eyesaur, Golden Flumpty
  • Allies: Spooky, Balloon Boy, The Joker, The Grand Duke of Owls

  • Opposes: Barney the Dinosaur
  • Flumpty Bumpty is a funny egg. He likes to kidnap people and play games with them, just for fun. He had been doing this for a while when he decided to kidnap Mike Schmidt after hearing of his experience with killer animatronics. After returning him the second time, though, he was kicked out by Freddy (whose face he had stolen for the second game, don't ask) and eventually evicted from the Pantheon altogether. Because he found this place exciting, he decided to ascend. How did he do that even though he was kicked out before? Plot Immunity.
  • For how silly he is, Flumpty is someone you shouldn't underestimate. He is able to kidnap anyone, and we mean anyone he feels like capturing. The Protectors of the Plot Continuum are trying their hardest to keep the sadistic egg at bay, but it's becoming increasingly impossible to keep up with his antics.
    • Rumors state that he was able to capture Mr. Rogers, and forced him to play his game. Fortunately, Rogers easily defeated Flumpty at his own game (twice!), and as a result, the two became best friends.
  • If you ever wondered what are the things you need to know if forced to play Flumpty's twisted game, here is all you need to know:
    "Welcome one and all to Flumpty Bumpty's
    If your light's turned off, then you're safe (Or are you?)
    If your lights are on then they'll come find you
    And rip you a brand new face"
  • It's no secret that most of the Five Nights at Freddy's gods dislike him, given their similar games and because Flumpty is just too evil for the animatronics' taste. However, Balloon Boy reminds him a lot of Birthday Boy Blam so he allows him to hang out with him.
  • Spooky has heard of Flumpty and decided to befriend the Egg. Flumpty likes being around Spooky and often invites her to play along with his friends. Spooky has also considered adding Flumpty to her house, but she wonders if including Flumpty would prove him to be too effective at killing visitors and as a result, making less people come around. It also came to her attention that Flumpty sometimes uses her carboard cutouts for decorating his lair, which the ghost doesn't really mind
  • He instantly made friends with The Joker, given that both share a really twisted sense of humor. He also reminds him a little of Grunkfuss.
  • Flumpty once broke into Billy Hatcher's house because he thought that he didn't deserve the spot of Weird Eggs. While he wasn't able to kill him, Flumpty was voluntarily arrested for breaking and entering just so he could escape the Pantheon's prison. The Court of Gods is getting tired of Flumpty's shenanigans.
  • After switching locations, many were wondering what happened to his friend the Beaver. According to flumpty, he died when he fell into the toilet.
  • Initially mistook The Grand Duke of Owls for his friend The Owl, understandable because they share the same Ominosity to boot. He wonders if he this owl is dumb enough to get hit on closed vents as well.
  • Flumpty was once reported to have murdered Winnie Pooh as well as Piglet and eventually drop their remains in his "victims" office. While this wasn't confirmed by either party, both creature are afraid of the egg he has in store for them.
  • Many were horrified to learn that most of his victims remains were put toguether to create The Eyesaur. One reason that no one visits Flumpty's temple is because it guards his home. And it's not very friendly.
  • To the surprise of everyone, there is a deity that could strip Flumpty of his Plot Immunity and that's none other than Barney the Dinosaur. Apparently, the latter thought that Flumpty was in fact Humpty Dumpty and included him in of his books. The egg tries his hardest to avoid Barney.
  • There was supposed to be a third iteration to his game, but given to a few complications, it won't likely happened. According to his creator, Flumpty died and eventually lost his immunity to the plot.

    King Kong 
King Kong, God of Gorillas and Climactic Climbing (Kong, The Eighth Wonder of the World, The Beast)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_767.jpeg
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Himself standing on top of the Empire State Building
  • Theme Song: The classic theme
  • Alignment: True Neutral, but can be Chaotic Neutral if angered enough
  • Portfolio: Anti-Hero/Anti-Villain, Kaiju, Killer Gorilla, Non-Malicious Monster
  • Domains: Apes, Power
  • Followers: Blizzard, Chaos, Kongor, The gorillas of Zinj
  • Allies: Andy Serkis, Tarzan, Donkey Kong, The Librarian, Son Goku, Wukong, Winston, Caesar
  • Rivals: Godzilla (and possibly Not So Different from him), Rexie
  • Enemies: Gwangi, Sharptooth, Indominus Rex, Frieza, King K. Rool, Hunter J
  • Somewhere on Earth, there exists a mysterious place known as Skull Island. It is home to a variety of dangerous creatures, though its most recognizable inhabitant is a giant ape named King Kong (or just Kong). He is an ape of incredible strength and while he's been described as someone who keeps to himself for the most part, he will attack if provoked.
  • An expedition team consisting of various Pantheon members set out for an island that was described as very dangerous, but home to plenty of interesting wildlife. After meeting several dangerous creatures, some of the members encountered a giant ape known as Kong. It's safe to say that some of the members were awed at his strength and size, but it was short-lived after other members of the team arranged for the ape to get captured.
    • By the time the team headed back to the Pantheon with the captured Kong, an exhibition was arranged as a means to showcase the giant ape. Unfortunately, Kong was able to break out of his enclosure and go on a rampage, taking with him one of the female members of the expedition team. Some time later, Kong was able to make his way to a very tall building and climbed it, with his damsel in distress in tow. A bunch of aerial weapons were called upon to stop Kong and the ape put up a good fight, destroying a fair number of them. Eventually, Kong ended up falling to the ground and was incapacitated as a result (his damsel was mostly unharmed, but was quite frightened).
      • There were some arguments on what to do with the ape after the whole ordeal, with some wanting to keep him and others insisting that he should be put back to where he belongs. An agreement was reached where Kong would be a part of the Pantheon, but he would have to be placed in a more natural habitat.
  • Kong climbing up the top of the Empire State Building with a Damsel in Distress is one of his more notable actions. A few other deities have recalled something similar to it happening, though some instances were much weirder than others.
    • Mojo Jojo, another primate, did something similar (minus kidnapping a girl) when he grew in size and went on a rampage. Mojo Jojo has tried convincing Kong a number of times to try and work with him, but Kong has made it clear that he does not want to get involved with Mojo Jojo and his goals in any way.
  • While Kong is not really villainous, he isn't heroic by default either. It is possible to paint him in a more heroic light considering how he protects Skull Island should the place be threatened in a serious capacity.
  • Dinosaurs are creatures that Kong has fought against quite often. With the wide variety of such in the Pantheon, it's more than likely that the ape will fight against one if they do anything that would anger him. The most notable battles between ape and dino tend to be him against Rexie, though Kong has gotten into battles against other, more aggressive dinos such as Gwangi and Sharptooth.
    • Indominus Rex, with her unrelenting viciousness and cunning, is practically the only thing that would make Kong and Rexie join forces in order to stop the creature. While Indominus does have a highly secure closure, such a thing will only happen if someone were stupid enough to let her out by accident.
  • He might have a preference for blonde women. No one is sure what would happen if a women of different hair color (such as red) would come into Kong's path, but many deities agreed that such an experiment is too risky and too much of a waste of time to perform.
  • Using thunder against King Kong is always considered a horrible idea when fighting him, since it gives a massive boost of strength. In fact, it made him strong enough to beat Godzilla to the bottom of the sea.
    • Due to this, he's Plan B for stopping Godzila's rampage when Plan A can't be enacted. (Plan A is have Fluttershy scold and him give him The Stare, which is more effective than it sounds).
      • As for Kong and Godzilla, it's quite possible that the two have much more in common than just being giant monsters. The two are both the last of their respective kind and have fought against separate natural predators. No one is sure if a serious-enough threat exists that would cause Kong and Godzilla to set aside their rivalry and stop this hypothetical threat together, but it doesn't appear to be the case as far as anyone knows.
  • Kong has a habit of changing his size, though he never becomes smaller than a T-rex or taller than a Kaiju. This is how he is able to go toe-to-toe against the King of the Monsters. He is still larger compared to a normal primate regardless of these unexplained size changes.
  • Has a vendetta against Frieza for his racist insult against monkeys, calling them filthy. However, Frieza really doesn't care, as he laughs it off because he blew up Kong's "planet" in one timeline.
  • Originally, a Human Sacrifice was performed by a tribe of natives in order to appease Kong. Performing such a thing for Kong doesn't happen in the Pantheon thankfully, but it hasn't stopped a select few from trying to get such a ritual planned. Needless to say, those plans were easily shot down repeatedly.
  • Planes and other aerial vehicles such as helicopters are a bit of a trigger for him due to the fact that he got shot down from the Empire State Building by biplanes. It's led to quite a bit of trouble for those who use aircraft and have a flight path that somehow has Kong in their route. One time, Tails ended up in Kong's way while the former was trying to get something that would help Sonic the Hedgehog and the ape took a swipe at the Tornado, causing the fox to bail from his plane as it crashed. Tails was able to escape before things between him and Kong got worse.
  • He is yet another target for capture by Hunter J, but if her comments are anything to go by, she considers approaching Kong at least a bit easier than trying to get to Godzilla. That said, she hasn't targeted him whenever thunderstorms occur, especially since one attempt ended badly due to such a thing happening.
  • Despite having "Kong" as part of their names and being primates, King Kong has no relation whatsoever with Donkey Kong and the latter's Kong Krew (especially considering that King Kong is much larger than even DK). It hasn't stopped the Eighth Wonder of the World from getting along with DK and company.
    • This didn't stop King K. Rool from thinking otherwise and tried to launch an attack against this particular Kong. It went badly for the crocodile, due in no small part to King Kong's strength and K. Rool has tried to concoct a different sort of plan specifically to get rid of this Kong.
  • While Kong doesn't hang out with other heroic primates that often (though he does visit the aforementioned DK Krew at a slightly higher frequency), he at the very least doesn't mind them, if only because they don't really enrage him a whole lot. Some of these primates are also fairly powerful (such as Winston under certain circumstances) and have occasionally helped Kong ward off certain threats.
  • It's possible to create a clone of Kong, though from what others understand, that particular clone was much more heroic than the original thing. That said, not a lot of people have talked about cloning Kong due to the dangers of such. It hasn't stopped a few devious people from trying to get DNA samples of him and sending those possible samples to evil scientists to try and create an evil Kong clone to wreak havoc.
  • Also has a spot in Mammals. As far as anyone can tell, that seems to be his preferred place due to the more natural feel of it, but he will still attack anyone that threatens him there.

All (except for Izaya): GUAE Trollkaiger
  • Odd Friendship: Artoria Pendragon (Celty)
  • Avoids: Shizuo Heiwajima (even though she became friends with him) and other strong men (Anri)

  • Good Counterpart to: Souther (Anri)
  • Evil Counterpart to: Yu Narukami
  • While searching around universes, the Court of Gods realized that one world stood out among the rest, how their stories were interconnected in the most unexpected ways possible. Because of this, they choose to nominate a dullahan who constantly searches for her head but later on chooses to settle down to be with her husband; a normal guy who is actually a manipulative bastard who wants to become an entity until he realized that everything he did was a mistake and embraces the normal life; a former gang leader who regrets forming it and hides his shame and guilt with a facade who leaves the city, but comes back because of his worriedness; a bespectacled teenage girl who considers herself a parasite and can't feel love because of her demonic sword, but later on embraces the sword she has and can feel love; a information broker who believes the head of the dullahan can get him to Valhalla; a man with superhuman strength hates how he constantly gets involved with violence and wants peace but later on accepts and finally loved the life that he has; and a doctor who is crazily in love with the dullahan who will literally do anything to get her to stay to represent Hyperlink Story.
    • Upon they were reascended with the new trope, Mikado and Anri rushed over to meet Masaomi and tackled him with a hug, while Celty and Shizuo rushed over to hug Shinra. The former two later on formally introduced their friend to the latter three, with Masaomi fangirling over the fact he finally met the Headless Rider. Although they (except for Shinra) grumbled that they shared the same trope with Izaya, they are glad that he has a seperate temple over them because the Court of Gods knew how much Izaya causes them to suffer with all of his plans. For now, the six started hanging out with each other like a real group while the info broker casually hangs around to manipulate the citizens of the Pantheon.
  • Celty:
    • She enjoys having tea with her fellow Goddesses Mami Tomoe and Ms. Fortune while they talk about their heads.
    • Her shadows gave her the ability to transform it into literally anything and her vehicle can turn into any land vehicle. Her powers possibly get stronger when she had her head. Fortunately, she doesn't want it anymore as she would rather spend the rest of life with her husband, Shinra.
    • She is a solo transporter, which means she will deliver anything to anyone or anywhere with the given amount of money. This is also her job in the Pantheon and she got a lot of clients since then.
    • Taking note of Izaya in the Pantheon, Celty takes extra careful steps to not approach him. The Slender Man also makes her uneasy.
    • Avoids houses of anyone affiliated with space aliens. The last time she did that she let out a loud girly scream and it embarrasses the hell out of her. Also doesn't like traffic cops either.
  • As much as she would like to share a drink or two in her House with Ragna, his fear of ghosts and the fact that the House of Otherness is associated with ghosts prevents that from happening. She does have a much better time being with Carl & Ada Clover, though.
    • Was the one that told the Goddess of Talking Down the Suicidal, Ashi, about Izaya's treatment of those with suicidal tendencies. He got a new enemy real quick.
    • Celty origially held the position of Goddess of Dullahans until the arrival of the Headless Horseman forced her to flee to a new temple and gain a new position in the process. She doesn't seem to mind it though.
    • Celty doesn't like the Horseless Headless Horseman as she thinks that he is a bit insane.
    • Currently a member of Snake Hands in Ikebukuro, an organization that claims to do any kind of freelance work whose members include Kuon Kotonami, Himeka Tatsugami, and Yahiro Mizuchi, who is also the group's namesake because of the unexpected arrival that he is an urban legend who uses Celty's shadows.
  • Mikado:
    • Because of his change of heart, he quit the Blue Squares as their leader and he disbanded the Dollars and the new branch he founded in the Pantheon. This completely frustrated the members in the Pantheon, who took great lengths to revive the colorless group. Mikado makes sure that no one would revive the group without any violence involved.
      • Many of his enemies, particularly L, Light Yagami, and Big Brother are glad when they heard the news of the Dollars' disbandment, although that doesn't stop them from wanting to know who is its true leader.
    • When Bahamut heard that "The Emperor of the Dragon Peak" had ascended, he went to meet him, and although he was put off that Mikado was an ordinary human, he respects Mikado's courage and wisdom relative to his age and species. Even after he learned that the Dollars has disbanded, he has sworn that he will aid him.
    • Mikado has no desire of visiting the House of Mentalism and the subhouse of Trickery anymore and avoids them as he doesn't want to be involved in any mind games as he no longer desires the supernatural and doesn't want to become like Izaya.
    • Mikado doesn't want anyone to remind him of that moment as he completely regretted it.
    • Isaac and Miria, one of the members of the Dollars before it's disbandment, are one of the few people that are okay with Mikado's decision to do it as they realized that they did something to repay for their crimes they commit (even if they did it in a wrong way). This got him to become closer with them as a result.
    • Batman is glad that Mikado has changed his ways and promised to him that he will fight anyone who dares oppose him about the Dollars' disbandment, although Mikado thinks it's a little bit extreme.
    • Mikado is in good terms with Ren, because he became interested on the story on how he had a change of heart and realized the horrible consequences with his actions, with Ren stating how similar he is to Futaba with that she changed herself without destroying her own Shadow Self. Although Mikado is not interested in the extraordinary life anymore, he does consider Ren and his teammates' methods to be interesting and stated that he will likely do that if he didn't undergo it.
    • Mikado became a Saika child due to being stabbed by one of his school's former teachers, Nasujima. However, he was able to break out of her control and she has little-to-no influence to him most likely due to the fact he is in love with Anri, who is currently his girlfriend.
    • Currently at third year in highschool, while his girlfriend Anri graduated and his best friend Masaomi dropped out in highschool because of his one year stay at the hospital. He is also the library committee president.
  • Masaomi:
    • When a lot of the deities asked why he doesn't flirt with girls anymore, Masaomi stated that it's all just an act because of the trauma he suffered during the gang wars and that he is happy to be with Saki.
    • Kazuma can relate a lot to Masaomi because he understood what it's like to keep coming back to danger even though it's something that they knew they don't have to but have to get involved anyway.
    • He really loathes the House of Mentalism because it reminds of how he was easily manipulated by Izaya and how his girlfriend is actually one of his worshippers before eventually staying by Masaomi's side with her free will.
    • He sympathizes with the subhouse of Regret, because he knows what it feels like to have guilt and shame weighing on his shoulders and how he could never escape from these mistakes as they keep coming back to him.
    • Masaomi is currently working in business along with his girlfriend, Saki. Although it's not specified what kind of business he's working on.
  • Anri:
    • Saika is known for its twisted love for humanity and any human that gets slashed from her, will become her "daughters" out of their free will and the "daughters" will have their own Saika blades. This made a lot of human deities wary of her, even though they knew she's a very nice person and uses that for the greater good.
      • The people who hate humanity such as Lysandre, Shinobu Sensui, and Evolto became enemies with her because of Saika's twisted love for humans as well as the fact that she can turn mere humans into her "daughters" and gain their own blades. It doesn't help that unlike Saika, Evolto can control other beings.
    • Saika is known for being especially obsessed with strong men and this results with Anri being clouded with her thoughts. This is why Anri avoids Shizuo Heiwajima (even though she is now friends with him thanks to Mikado and Celty) and other strong men.
    • It's no secret that Anri despises the Child Abuse Supporters due to her and her mother being abused by her father. This also made Anri want to control them by Saika because of their behavior. Her suffering from abuse caused her to feel pity and became friends for those that are in the same fate as her such as Sakura Matou and this caused her to hate the abusers that appear in the Pantheon like Zouken Matou.
    • Kisuke Uzuki opposes her due to the fact she has a demonic blade. Even though if he knew that anyone who has the inability to feel love or they love someone more than anything else in the world causes them to break out of Saika's control, he still opposes her.
    • Anri doesn't like Tsukuyomi and Lilith Madlove at all as they remind her of the culprit of The Slasher Incidents, Haruna Niekawa. This also means she doesn't like the GUAC Yandere Squad.
    • Anri became a little bit interested in The Ebony Blade because she can compare the similarities between it and her demonic sword, Saika (friendship and love respectively) even if she is a little bit wary of the former as she knew she wasn't aware of all its capabilities.
    • Anri doesn't love Goetia because of the fact that his actions for his love for humanity includes destroying them to so that they wouldn't suffer and be miserable, causing her to become enemies with him.
    • Anri doesn't like Souther because he sees love as a weakness, something that Anri opposes as she started to feel love once she removes her inability to feel love.
    • Brynhild feels bad for Anri's situation, since Saika gaining more power by "loving" humanity is a lot like Brynhild being more stronger by loving any man who is just like her beloved Sigurd. While she can't see Anri as Sigurd, Brynhild at least told her that she's not alone in this.
    • Since her ascencion, she establishes her family antique shop, Sonohara Hall in the Pantheon. She made sure to include all kinds of ancient stuff that she is allowed to sell from across the Pantheon for her customers to buy.
  • Izaya:
    • Because of his love for collecting information, he took a lot of online identities using his cellphones and laptops. He occassionally uses the information to manipulate them.
    • With the recent Ascension of fellow trolls Handsome Jack and Basco, he, Bernkastel, and Terumi have become Trollkaiger, making even more problems for the pantheon.
    • One of the reasons why Izaya want to cause chaos other than to fulfill his amusement, is he has Celty's head and he believes that causing a war will make Celty raise him to Valhalla, the afterlife of Norse Mythology. This got him some enemies with the good-aligned Norse deities.
    • He seems interested in Gentaro Kisaragi with a passion due to him having the same love for humanity as he does, just in a different way. He's been trying his best to "study him", with rumors regarding another Gentaro Kisaragi who turned away from humanity and became consumed by hatred. So far, Gentaro's maintained his cheery disposition...but he's slowly starting to crack under the pressure.
    • Started a Brains and Brawn group with Ladd; Izaya's the one who plots the mayhem, while Ladd slaughters the ones trying to stop it. Everyone wins in their case.
    • Has earned the ire of Ashi after she learned he had tormented those with suicidal thoughts. She takes her Goddess role very seriously as she did one heck of a job to earn it. Izaya really didn't think of her as much of a threat until she formed an alliance with Shizuo. Turns out it was Celty that had told her about him after seeing this act first hand.
    • He hates Roodaka because even though she is a robot, she is monstrous enough for him to hate her and he hates those that he considers monsters.
    • He is interested in Junko because he sees some similarities between the latter and himself. He is currently in an "alliance", but he actually does this so he could mess with her.
    • It is unknown where Izaya currently is as he had disappeared from the face of the Earth. Only time will tell when he will come back.
  • Shizuo:
    • Due to Shizuo being a bodyguard to a debt collector, he was also this in the Pantheon. It really works because he can easily scare stubborn normal people and gets them to pay their debt.
    • Gets on rather well with deities who are straightforward with him. He'll still beat the crap out of anybody who comes looking for a fight, but if they're blunt and honest about it, he won't be angry.
      • For this reason, when dealing with him, Batman and Lelouch drop the crap and are frank with him, since they know that screwing with his head is a pretty big Berserk Button.
      • In the case of Lelouch, however, Shizuo has remarked that he pisses him off for some reason, but hasn't quite been able to figure it out. Lelouch, in turn, simply does what he can at every opportunity to not piss off Shizuo, and frequently provides information leading to the whereabouts of Izaya Orihara. As a result, the two have a something of a platonic love-hate relationship.
    • Many Gods are betting a match between him and Claire Stanfield. Behind the scenes, Izaya Orihara rigs the bets in Claire's favor to spite and provoke Shizuo.
    • Frequently heads over to the Food Pantheon for milk.
    • It should be noted that Shizuo is not known for starting fights. Finishing them, on the other hand....
    • All attempts to actually kill him thus far have failed, and the only lasting result has been becoming even more powerful than before. When various deities have asked about that, Shizuo simply replies, "Well, Shinra says - actually, who gives a damn what he says?! I COME BACK STRONGER EVERY TIME!!!!"
    • Due to the fact that both of their enemies are Trolls, he strikes up an alliance with Ragna the Bloodedge for this very reason.
    • Despite possessing a Hair-Trigger Temper, Shizuo ultimately strives to be a peaceful man, and that quality helped him get along with Kazuma Kiryu. In fact, Kiryu was impressed by the young man's brute strength, but noted his lack of finesse that often leaves him open, so he offered to formally train Shizuo in the art of combat. In return, he has to give Haruka soft drinks for free.
    • Shizuo doesn't fear anything... except for Albedo due to the fact that Albedo is more insane than he is and the fact that they sound so similar.
    • Was approached by Ashi asking to form an alliance with him against Izaya. He wasn't interested, not wanting anyone to get hurt in their personal battles. She then told him that Iyaza had been tormenting those with suicidal thoughts. Since he was speaking with the Goddess of Talking Down the Suicidal he really couldn't say no anymore. He has told her to just keep tabs on him, not to get near without calling him first. She also has laser eyes. Who wouldn't want someone like that on their side?
    • Other gods note his similarities to both Iori Yagami and K', who also have similar brooding personalities to him while the former also dislikes violence. Shizuo relates to their inner struggles, despite how nasty they are on the outside much more than Shizuo himself.
      • Others also wonder why Izaya even bothers to antagonize Shizuo, since they point out that it makes much more sense for Shizuo to hate him. Shizuo himself wonders what Izaya views him as from time to time.
    • Seems to find some kinship with Jet the Hawk, Sima Zhao, Edge Maverick, Rokurou Rangetsu, Taigong Wang and a few others; perhaps they seem to all sound the same as his brother, Kazuka.
  • Shinra:
    • The Pantheon were shocked to see that Shinra considers himself to be Izaya's only friend, even though he irritates him a lot. Shinra just stated that even though he knows that there's no goodness on him, he still remains friends with him and expresses desire to see him again after he disappeared from Ikebukuro.
    • He is a back alley doctor which is obvious from the trope he represents. He also allows himself to take on any patient, whether they are criminals, supernatural beings, normal people or any along of those lines. He is also alright with doing medical prodecures on everywhere, LITERALLY EVERYWHERE no matter how dangerous he is and it helps that he is good at his job. This is why he is one of the ideal doctors to get contacted on the Pantheon.
      • He was looked down upon by other good-aligned doctors not because he was an illegal doctor but because he also operates on criminals.
    • He seems to get along with Black Jack due to them not having official medicial licenses. It also helps that he is also really good at his job.
      • He also gets along with Ren not just because they have the same voice but also because one of Ren's allies is a back alley doctor.
    • Nigel Burke seems to be okay with him but even Shinra knew he wouldn't go that far on operating his patients.
    • It's pretty obvious that whoever hurts or threatens with Celty will be enemies with him.
    • He has become a Saika child thanks to Kasane Kujiragi, the original wielder of Saika. Fortunately, he was able to resist its control and use it to cut the link between Celty and her head so that she could stay in Ikebukuro.

  • Special Relationship: 2B and 9S
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Zero (Drakengard)
  • Opposes: Nier
  • LOADING – Booting System…Commencing System Check…All Systems Green. Model Unit Type A No.2 is an attacker prototype unit of the YoRHa androids whose template was later used to create more advanced androids such as No.2 Type B and No.9 Type S. An more aggressive and less graceful combat android compared to 2B, she's been active for a long time, though fell out with YoRHa Command at one point. By the time she met 2B and 9S the organization had her marked for annihilation, though she claimed that Command had betrayed her and her fellow androids and not the other way around; this statement soon led to a horrifying discovery.
  • A2 has been in the Pantheon for a while now, it's just that it was in a secret storage area that had been reserved for her and 9S when 2B first ascended, and in stasis until a trope could be found for her.
    • And at long last, one was found: Not What It Looks Like. The reason is because it was one of these that fueled her entire conflict with 9S; he arrived just in time to see her kill 2B, unaware that she had already succumbed to the Logic Virus and A2 was granting her a Mercy Kill.
    • With that handled, her temple was quickly assembled, her body was moved there and awakened, and word spread. She also noticed that her hair was long again, given that she had cut it. Naturally, 9S was among the first on the scene and he and A2 started clashing swords. Shortly after that, 2B arrived and defused the situation.
    9S: Why are you protecting her?! She killed you!
    2B: I asked her to kill me!
    9S: (stops and sputters) W-w-what?
    2B: By the time I reached her, I was already infected by the Logic Virus, and was in its advanced stages. It was already too late to save me, even for you, and I didn't want to hurt you or anyone else.
    A2: I just happened to be in the area, and was the only one who can listen to her words. I'm still not sure why I heeded her request, though.
    • Really, the blame should go to Pods 042 and 153 as they were already in correspondence by then and could've at least attempted to clarify the situation rather than simply try (and fail) to keep the two apart as long as they could.
    • As it was, their history is bigger than what was seen in the game. She Had To Be Sharp, since she's had to take on the two YoRHa androids at least three times before and had become incredibly proficient at killing them. Especially 9S, whose pride always made him underestimate her during his hacks and she quickly turns the tables the moment he's gloating. Of course, everyone's smarter now.
    • In the end, A2 felt that things have gone too bitter for her to stick around with the two of them too much, but at least they can encounter one another again without it becoming an incident, especially since YoRHa's purpose and lies are rendered moot with the existence of humans in the Pantheon.
  • Part of her ascension package was her own Pod to allow for the use of the Pod Programs that 042 and 153 possess. Unlike those two however, this Pod has no personality chip and is silent. That is all right with A2, since it was only through 2B's last request that she didn't trash Pod 042 despite getting irritated with him so many times.
  • At first, A2 had been nominated for Cynicism Catalyst, given her past in YoRHa and their betrayal of her and her team, but the Court of the Gods already had another in mind, and her backstory isn't openly known, which counted against A2's legibility.
  • She sometimes wonders what would've happened differently if it had been 9S who reached her first and asked to be slain, and 2B who witnessed it. What would have changed? Nothing, most likely. Either she defeats them, gets the Pods to take them to safety and A2 dies for different reasons, or both die by the other android's doing.
  • Because of the tension with 2B and 9S, she has no plans to join Liberion Arcadia, stating her preference to go solo whenever an invitation comes up. Certain members, such as Ciel and Harpuia, still check again on occasion, though thankfully not to irritating levels, which she can easily reach. Despite not being a member, she still gets involved with them whenever one of their enemies goes after her; the Vex, Corpus, Sigma, the Cybermen… any enemy of humanity is an enemy of hers.
  • Just like 9S, A2 had a lingering mistrust for non-human-looking machines, but her time with Pascal has since resulted in her being able to warm up to such non-evil-aligned deities.
  • Has some hacking capabilities, though it's only through her Pod, and naturally nowhere near as good as that of a Scanner such as 9S.
  • Due to her forever unexplained murder of the Forest King, who was a defenseless machine baby, a lot of royalty deities exercise a lot of caution around her, and so do a lot of parents.
  • Due to his role in rendering humanity extinct, and thus YoRHa's founding, and the lies they told its members and all the suffering as a result of it, A2 despises Nier. He in turn was momentarily caught off guard in the midst of defending himself from A2's attacks when she first ran into him since she was very reminiscent of Kainé for some reason.
  • Has encountered at least two Zeroes who, like her, are hard-edged warriors judged as traitors by enemies in power, as well as being somewhat of progenitors to their kind. Is on much friendlier terms with the Maverick Hunter and Resistance hero than the Traitor Intoner, since the latter is far more insane.

  • Special Relationship: RNG
  • After the Traveler's sacrifice to protect humanity from annihilation, it fragmented itself in the form of Ghosts to seek out and resurrect those who have potential to wield the Light to not only fight the Darkness' disciples, but to recover and rebuild civilization. While early on the candidates became Drunk with Power, after infighting against the injustices that took place is where the Guardians officially were formed, defending the last of humanity from spider-like space pirates, undead krill zealots, time traveling radiolorian cyborgs, and rhinoceros Space Romans. Besides being responsible for granting their Guardians their powers the Ghosts are also responsible for resurrecting their Guardians, transmating vehicles and gear, hacking into nearly all forms of technology, and opening doors.
  • It started with but a skirmish but it quickly escalated into a full-scale battle. Oryx's Hive and Taken forces have stormed their way through. XCOM, despite the odds, held the line and kept both at bay yet it was still quite the stalemate until one side falters. Bursting in guns blazing and quickly turning the tide over to XCOM's were the Guardians in all their glory. It turns out they shortly after storming the Last City to take it back, successfully killing Domninus Ghaul who was empowered by the stolen Light and witness the Traveler awaken from it's comatose state, break free from the Cabal restraints, and destroy Ghaul after resurrecting as a being of Light. XCOM was grateful for their efforts and the two have decided to aid each other whenever they needed it.
    • Of course, the Vex, Oryx, and the Eliksni were furious that their archenemies had ascended. For the time traveling cyborgs, they are a major hurdle to their goal of reshaping everything where there is only Vex, always destroying their Axis Minds and stopping whatever plan they had in store for existence. For the Taken King, they are a civilization that relied on artificial strength and not on warring and conquest in the name of Sword Logic, but it's more personal than that. For one, they killed Crota along with many of his family members before moving on to him. Lastly for the Space Pirates, they believe they stole their "Great Machine" for their own use, depriving them of the one hope they have at restoring their former glory. They share this hatred, since much of humanity was lost because of them and many Guardians fell to their forces before, and they are the things standing in the way of humanity' survival.
      • Now besides being there to help light up their enemies from back home, they also give out more detailed advice on how to deal with them since there are a lot of Guardians who specialize on certain factions. Asher Mir and Osiris for example are very knowledgeable on Vex and their movement, and have communed with the GUAG's leaders on how to more efficiently deal with them. Eris Morn's shared knowledge before she took off on her own are also crucial in the fight against the Hive and Oryx, something that ticked him off but ultimately can't prevent now.
  • While the Last City came with them during the Guardians' ascension their actual temple is the Tower, their base of operations and where they stop buy from time to time to deposit their spoils, acquire new gear, and check in with the Vanguard advisers. If one's fast enough you'll find corpses of Guardians on the base who fell off the top, unintentionally or otherwise. What also often happens is Guardians running around playing the Floor is Lava, except it actually does harm participants. Seeing them host dance parties even when there is no music playing, but it can happen whenever. As does sitting in the most bizarre and sometimes annoying spots.
    • Since Xur is not present within the Pantheon as nowadays he took to appearing in the wilds, the Merchent seems to have filled that void, though is more open in his buying and selling. The fact that both are enigmatic individuals that act as hooded armsdealers hasn't gone unnoticed.
  • There are many, many notable Guardians both in past and in the now. The ones fond in the Tower are the Vanguard function as the Guardian's leadership (if you could call it that, anyways) and coordinate many fireteam's movements. Those nominated to be in the Vanguard are often regarded to be one of the finest of their class, and just because they're cooped up in the Tower doesn't mean they have lost their skills.
    • Commander Zavala, the no-nonsense Titan Vanguard who actually acts like how any military higher up would. When asked how does he put up with his peers and those under his command despite his attitude he's quick to answer that they still get the job done. Often he'll meet up with deities in the House of War to test and shape his knowledge, most notably Sun Tzu since he applied a lot of his work in battle before. Zavala's attitude impressed the likes of James T. Kirk and Jean-Luc Picard, who are reminded of Benjamin Sisko. For some reason, people keep reciting the Cerberus Vae III briefing whenever he's around.
    • Cayde-6, the lighthearted Hunter Vanguard who once longed to get back into the field (wish granted). Behind that demeanor, he can be pretty cunning if a bit reckless as shown with that incident with a Vex teleporter. When escaping from his duties he'll swing by Sojiro's place to kick back and relax. If you're confused as to how he got on board in the first place, he was forced into the position via a bet designed to get a representative for Hunters. That said, it was also because the previous rep was also a close friend died to an Eliksni mercenary, and felt the need to take over in respect.
    • Ikora Rey, former outspoken loner turned tempered Warlock Vanguard who was notable for her deadly gunplay. Testing her patience is ill advised, whether by being really annoying or being a dangerous enough threat to warrant being blown to dust by Void energies. She handles analyzing lore and intelligence gathering and can be seen working with other members in the House of Knowledge for this reason. Ikora tends to work with Meteora after the Warlock Vanguard heard of the former NPC's art of analysis, and to help regulate the use of military weaponry despite Cayde's insistence on otherwise.
  • They often practice the Crucible in the House of War. Run by the enthusiastic Lord Shaxx, it doubles as not only a place to test a Guardian's skills with one another but also to defend locations from enemy hands (they don't handle "stand here for Pantheon knows how long in case of intruders"). Weird as that may sound, it works, and it makes for good entertainment.
    • Two fireteams were running the Crucible in the House of War where after the match they happened upon John 117/Master Chief. Noticing the similarities (mostly towards Titans) alongside sharing similar creators they decided to team up during a couple missions. Their enemies did not stand a chance. Although many Guardians are driven for other goals than to protect the Last City like personal achievement or loot, they all undoubtedly respect the Spartan. The Ghosts chat with Cortana and are good terms if a bit cautious after her attempted rebellion. Rampancy was present with the likes of Rasputin and Failsafe, but neither took it to dangerous levels like she did. Cortana made it clear that she's fine now in the Pantheon, but that air of awkwardness still lingers.
    • During an assault on an Eliksni hideout to turn it into another Crucible map, they broke in only to realize the Tenno had already beaten them to the punch. There was some (albeit kinda onesided) rivalry with them until some members proposed that they go in and share their respective tech. One modding session with rocket launchers later, the two groups became fast allies and you can find some members train with each other. Seeing them team up and wield each other's weaponry is not uncommon, to the dismay of their enemies. Their Ghosts tend to strike lengthy conversations with Ordis despite at first being freaked out by his crazy moments, ranging from the usual robot-to-robot talks about their tech to the Ghosts talking about the antics of their Guardians. The rivalry between the two soldiers is still going strong by the way, often in the form of Body Count Competitions due to the similar nature of their games.
  • Realizing there are many more malicious aliens in the Pantheon there was back home, they nonetheless decided to take up arms against them. Hearing of XCOM's Archnemesis ADVENT they decided to start there, deciding to help take out a facility. Resurrective Immortality does wonders when your enemies realizes it too late. Already, it prompted the more elite alien occupants forces to take action in the future. XCOM warns them not to grow overconfident since it could potentially mean the Chosen coming after them, which the Space Liches noted. Some Guardians are a bit unnerved that they share similarities to them, right down to their ability to resurrect unless a certain condition is met. Their Ghosts, particularly the Young Wolf's Ghost are most nervous by the Hunter since he can potentially take them out with his marksmanship, but what adds to that is how similar he sounds to some of them.
    • Of course, waging war on those with ill intent requires allies. Not long after the Vanguard decided to reach out to the Jedi since they too are magical space warriors. Warlocks tend to be most common Guardians working with them, given they share the most similarities out of all of the classes and thus want to hone their existing skills further. Though Mace Windu seems to give the Arc wielding Guardians, particularly the Stormcallersnote , some distance for some reason. They also affiliated themselves with the rest of Starfleet due to both being protectors, which lead to some older Guardians lamenting that Starfleet's exploration of the cosmos went much smoother than their attempts in the Golden Age. Some also went to the likes of King Arthur and his allies since the Iron Lords were based around Arthurian Legend since turning down having legends on your side would be foolish. They didn't expect to meet Arthur's Distaff Counterpart in the process, nor did the expect to hear his many, many incarnations but it didn't stop them from being allies.
    • Hearing word of a Eternal Hero clad in a green tunic originating in Hyrule from Master Chief they met up with Link, who's not too different from themselves being warriors capable of magic alongside being blessed from the gods. Through him, they would also ally with Princess Zelda, who assists many of the Last City's scholars and librarians to rediscover history lost in the Collapse. She also adds her theory of the Traveler being some form of proxy or even avatar of the Golden Goddesses of her world. The Ghost's meeting with Fi went well too, finding her calculations very useful for the Last City, with some expressing envy that she have combat capabilities. Some Guardians decided to take a short trip to Hyrule and were taken back at how prosperous it was, a huge change compared to life in the Last City. After reporting it to Zavala he says it's the kind of state humanity wants to achieve someday, and that it should be the motivation they would keep on fighting for. No matter how long it takes.
      "One day the Last City will be known as the First City."
      • Link also introduced him to three heroes he met during his time within the Pantheon. The first was a young man named Shido Itsuka, who like them were blessed with magical powers with parallels to theirs. Then there was Ayato Amagiri, a superhuman martial artist with strength that caught the Guardian's Titans attention. Lastly there's Lux Arcadia, who was no stranger to defeating armies and monsters whilst defending his home. All three are willing to pitch in and defend the Last City like it was their own homes, earning the Traveler's chosen many their appreciation who in turn promise to offer any assistance they need in the future.
    • Chief told some Guardians of a boy who had actually befriended beings worthy of divinity. Curious, they investigated the House of Commerce and found who the Spartan told them about: Ash Ketchum. He didn't really have any trouble befriending them despite his reluctance to war since he understood that their mission was noble and has agreed to help them in any way he can. Some Guardians believe that Ash may be blessed by the Traveler in some way.
    • Although they are used to hearing other heroes' adventures that is not to say their escapades went in unnoticed. Mata Nui heard of their stories and, along with the Toa, went to the Tower to discuss an alliance. They gave supplies to the Last City necessary for research and defense, the Guardians go around and assist them in their exploits and share their knowledge. Optimus Prime similarly came to the Last City for an alliance as well, acknowledging each other's roles as protectors.
      Commander Zavala: "I need your forces, Prime."
      Optimus Prime: "And you shall have them, Commander."
  • Their time in the Pantheon also granted them much unneeded attention. Link and Zelda told them of Ganondorf's plans to seize control of the Last City and try and harness the Traveler's Light to fuel his ambitions. This is eerily similar to what Dominous Ghaul wanted to do, and the Red Legion's attack is still fresh within the minds of many Guardians that had survived that Lightless period. Others have similar goals like Brainiac, the Borg Queen, and Harbinger after they heard of their battles with the Vex. The Vanguard was once greeted by a man named Ardyn Izunia and heard of his claims being "a man of no consequence". Zavala instantly didn't trust him, and neither did his peers and investigated further where their suspicions were proven. The Commander is currently working with Cosmos to ascend the True King to oppose him.
    • The Grineer instantly became enemies with them after hearing of their alliance with the Tenno, and quickly sent Grineer forces to try and deal with them. Emphasis on try, as the Tenno had intercepted them and notified the city of their intentions and sent them packing after a long battle of attrition. Cayde-6 wanted to help return the favor and - after a Guardian's and Tenno's quick trip to one of their bases - lured a large force of Grineer to a Eliksni hideout. He once again did this without telling his peers, but it was executed well.
      Cayde-6: "Everyone loves a bad idea when it works."
  • Are weary of any wish granters and dragons, having a bad enough experience with the now extinct Ahamkara, who grant knowledge and power but with, as usual, a very high price. Hearing of how the Devil tricked Inkwell Isles' residents into selling their souls didn't do him any favors, though he seems to be cautious in return after what happened with his last deal. They aren't in good terms with Kyubey and the Incubators either, and seem to have taken up target practice whenever they rear their heads. Nor are they in good terms with Calypso, who is basically the Ahamkara in a human form if they decided to be much more direct and chaotic in their plans. He could be Satan too. They also don't take kindly to any Omnicidal Maniacs since half of their enemies back in their home universe are that, and they had enough of them already. Hearing Oryx's allegiance to an Alliance dedicated to destruction, they will protect the Pantheon from the GUAD at all costs.
    • Some of the less saner gods and goddesses have claimed that the dragon-like bone armor some of the Guardians wear have spoken to them. No one really believed them, and investigations conducted from various deities reveals otherwise. While the Ahamkara's nature does prove to be solid at first, it's unlikely as their presence would be limited due to who the general denizens are. So rest assured, O Troper mine.
    • They particularly loathe, and are loathed by, the Chaos Gods, Particularly Tzeench for the fact that they are unshackled by fate, making it so that the god cannot precisely predict their actions.
    • They also are cautious of the God Emperor of Mankind and by extension deities affiliated with the Imperium of Man. Besides being disturbingly similar to the Cabal (who blew the Last City to cinders once) they are aware their attitude on xenos and considering the origins of their powers this keeps many Guardians on edge. They aren't quite enemies, if the time calls for it they will fight alongside them, but they are very cautious.
  • Can have a somewhat difficult time with encountering deities not in the futuristic era. While society in the last city isn't too drastically different from the modern era given the emphasis on other aspects like colonization (there were still regular cars lying around), they can be still baffled by certain normal things. Like pineapples, for instance.
  • Beyond Reality Warping powers and weaponry or technology specifically tailored to cutting off their connection to the Light, to ensure a Guardian's final death you must target their Ghost. Without their Ghost, they cannot resurrect or do many of the aforementioned functions for long. Of course, targeting a Ghost gives any Guardians justification to end your life in return since they're not only a incredibly useful but limited resource but also a Guardian's True Companion.
  • Due to the nature of their loot system, their fates lie within RNG's hands. It could mean the difference between new gear, or the same old one they got an hour ago. It was no secret that long ago they were not in good graces and got pretty bad gear decrypted for them despite the tiring effort. When bringing up RNG, Guardians tend to either shudder of those dark times, mourn the loss of a "loot cave", or mutter angrily about a man named Master Rahool.
  • Since Guaridans are often the fallen raised back from the dead they are technically undead, especially if you take it from an enemies' perspective (the Eliksni called them Ghouls at one point), which contrasts with many deities present in the House of Undead. Understandably not wanting the bad reputation of undead to continue they partnered with Anakaris for his reputation as a sorverous yet benevolent ruler who isn't afraid to fight, also mentioning a common enemy in Oryx. Osiris seems really fond of him, considering he's themed off of Egyptian Mythology. Squigly was another undead they met in their travels, where her attitude caught many off guard. Nonetheless, it was a welcome trait and she was happy to meet benevolent undead in the Pantheon.
  • The Guardians went into mourning, and they were asked why. Their Ghosts said in a somber tone. Cayde-6 was killed. All sources pointed to Uldren Sov, the Master of Crows and Queen of the Reef Mara Sov's brother, who was leading a massive prison break from the Prison of Elders. The Guardians will not stop until they find Uldren and bring him to justice.
  • "The Guardians who lead the way will save humanity - and become legend."

    Morpheus 
Morpheus, The God Who Offers The Choice Of Adventure
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/125781_1232250004771_300_257_5074.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His hands, holding the red and blue pills
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good with a shade of well-intentioned extremism
  • Portfolio: Red Pill, Blue Pill, The Captain, Cool Longcoats And Shades, Supporting Leader, A Father to His Men, Mentors, Philosophical Lectures, Bald, Black Leader Guy, There Is No Try
  • Domains: Choice, Rebellion, Freedom, Firepower, Wisdom
  • Allies: Neo, The Oracle, the Council of Ninenote  and Butters, Dream of the Endless, The Inception Crew, Douglas Quaid, John Connor, Tron, Kevin Flynn
  • On good terms with: The Grand United Alliance of Chaos and Grand United Alliance of Good
  • Enemies: Agent Smith, Darkseid, YHVH, Maltheal, Sigma, Sosuke Aizen, Yuri, SKYNET, The Master Control Program, Enter
  • Opposes: Iroque, the Grand United Alliance of Law as it is
  • Wary of: The Grand United Alliance of Machines
  • Morpheus, like all humanity for over a century, started his existence plugged into the Matrix. At least, until he was offered the opportunity to realize the illusion he was in. Joining the Resistance, he served to liberate bluepills from the Matrix and fight for freedom against it. Eventually he would find Neo, whom he hoped was The Chosen One, and helped train him to fight against the Machines. His faith was rewarded and Neo would go on to end the system of manipulative control in the Matrix.
  • When joining the resistance, choice is key. He offers them a choice; to take the blue pill and continue their life, or take the red pill and see how far the rabbit hole goes. Adamant about the importance of choice and free will; he does not oppose the Matrix itself, but rather that no-one is allowed to know or leave. Due to how he values the freedom of choice, anyone who champions The Evils of Free Will is an inconsolable enemy. Especially Darkseid, who wants to strip free will away to make people suffer.
  • This is not the first time Morpheus crossed over with other series. In the universe of South Park he is a member of the Council of Nine, a council of good-aligned characters who keep the peace in Imaginationland, the realm where all that is imagined exist. He helped Butters realized his potential as the chosen one, and saved imagination. He's happy to see Butters again, hoping to use his imagination once more.
  • Despite the name, he is not related to Dream of the Endless, though was almost certainly inspired by him. Dream is interested in the crew of the Nebuchadnezzar due to the fact that the Matrix is a false dream interfering with his work.
  • His actions have brought ire from the Grand United Alliance of Good, accusing him and his group of being designated heroes due to their willingness to gun down civilians. In Morpheus' defense the Machines are so implemented into the virtual reality that any bluepill could be hijacked by an Agent. It's not like they have the software to overcome this. Still, Morpheus has accepted the view that he's a Well-Intentioned Extremist, but with emphasis on the "well-intentioned" part.
  • As it stands now, he cannot accept the GUAL because of the influence of YHVH-that being said if the Archangels' Arcadia is any indication, He would look at the Matrix unfavorably. Besides, conformity isn't something he fits anyway. He is a lot willing to listen to the GUAC however, as one the virtues they promote is freedom and rebellion. Granted, a lot of their other goals aren't what he supports, but he'd give them a fair shake. He already has a role in the GUAG due to his position in the Council of Nine.
  • He has been scouting out others to help. Because of their experience with the virtual world, Tron and Kevin Flynn were happy to help his cause. As was John Connor, due to the many similarities he shared with Neo and his relationship with The T-800 making him a good negotiator for continuing peace between humans and the Machines. Trying to guide the Inception Crew and Douglas Quaid through the dreamscape.
  • Due to the nature of the Matrix, any malignant, viral programming is a severe threat, especially SKYNET and Sigma. He's no fan of Sosuke Aizen or Yuri due to their abuse of mind control and skewing perceptions.
  • Has become increasingly aware of the popular theory that Zion is actually a second layer of the Matrix, and he's still yet to be free. While believing this is false, he's declared that if it is true the crew of the Nebuchadnezzar will not stop until, if it exists, the wool will be pulled from their eyes. Whether the simulation be crafted by further machines, humans, something else or even a bunch of movie directors.
  • Has a habit of saying "what if I told you" before adding something to sound profound. It's not the actual quote, but he's picked up the habit.
  • Wary of the GUAM. Yes, the machines there aren't the same kind that put humanity in the Matrix, however the belief in Machine Supremacy makes them a danger. Not that humanity is one to talk since in his universe humans started the conflict through oppression, but a number of nasty customers like SKYNET and Sigma are there. At least there are more reasonable gods like Roboking.

  • Portfolio: Persona-Users, Badass Crew, Defeating Nyarlathotep, Ragtag Bunch of Misfits, Stories That Repeats Themselves
  • Domain(s): Personas, Rumors, Reset, Combos
  • Heralds: Yukino Mayuzumi, Eriko Kirishima, Kei Nanjo (veteran Persona-users from before), Mami Shibata and Miho Ogishima (Lisa's MUSES bandmates), Gas Chamber (Eikichi's "band"), Miyabi Hanakouji (Eikichi's girlfriend), Cpt. Togashi (Katsuya's superior)
  • Allies: Philemon (actually, it's complicated, especially for the Innocent Sin party), Igor, S.E.E.S./Shadow Operatives, The Investigation Team, The Phantom Thieves of Hearts, Ginko (for the Innocent Sin party), the Toku hero deities, particularly the Super Sentai
  • Odd Friendship: Pantheon (Katsuya)
  • Enemies: Nyarlathotep, all unrepentant Nazi deities, Ameno-Sagiri, Izanami, Yaldabaoth, Junko Enoshima (especially for Maya and Jun), corrupt governments and conspiracy groups such as The Illuminati
  • Fears: Beerus (Maya)
  • Pitied by: Kabal, Joshua Graham (Maya)
  • If there's one sin Philemon is always taking punishment for (and which Tatsuya and many others will still hold over him), it's the events in Sumaru City, in particular the bet he made with Nyarlathotep over whether Humans Are Bastards or not. Because he didn't involve himself directly like his opposite, it ended with the world being destroyed, and requiring the erasure of the memories of Tatsuya's party as the price to pay for restoring it, essentially resetting the storyline for Eternal Punishment.
  • It was that realization that the present Persona 2 deities in the Pantheon—Tatsuya Suou, Maya Amano, and Eikichi Mishina—decided they could bring the rest of their friends up to the Pantheon with... at the "cost" of their current titles.
  • To make up for his mistake, just like with Eikichi (thanks to Cosmos), everyone's memories of both sides have been restored by Philemon. For some, it didn't change much (such as the other adults in the group). For others, there was a profound effect, especially for Lisa (is a celebrity on the EP side, but not on the IS side) Jun (differing and conflicting parental situations), and Maya (having been heavily involved on both sides).
  • Applies to all or some of them:
    • Unlike the Persona-users after them, who all (or mostly) have just one Persona (that can evolve) besides the Wild Card, all of them can take on multiple Personas, not just their team leader, and can swap and exchange them mid-battle. On the flip side, they have affinities to watch out for, which limits which Personas they can take on depending on their Arcanas. Also, SP cost is dependent solely on their Persona, no matter what skill is used.
      • Due to the fact that not all of them can stay together with one another all the time, Philemon made a caveat when it comes to their pseudo-"Wild Card"s; each of their Persona Stocks is limited to three (including their current one), but can exchange Personas when they're together.
    • Instead of All-Out Attacks, they instead can perform Fusion Spells, its effects depending on what skills are used. While they can be performed in conjunction with other Persona-users in the Pantheon, at least one Sumaru City Persona-user has to participate for it to be pulled off at all.
    • Are greatly respected by the Investigation Team and Shadow Operatives/S.E.E.S., fellow Persona-users who continue protecting the world after them.
      • As for the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, there were a few issues given their modus operandi, but the Eternal Punishment party in particular understand the idea of opposing corrupt governments, given Tatsuzou's city-encompassing conspiracy. Also, the mental shutdowns the Phantoms have witnessed are all too familiar to the Innocent Sin party (perhaps) if they failed to keep Yukino's Shadow from killing herself.
    • Another thing that was brought to their attention is the TV World and its potential to bestow Personas to "clients" who traverse its dungeons (with the Investigation Team, of course) and confront their Shadow. Unlike the Innocent Sin party, these aren't of Nyarlathotep's creation, but the TV World itself with "help" from those who travel in it. Additionally, upon defeating the Shadow, and accepting it, the "client" has a chance to inherit a Persona of their own.
      • That said, only those who came from the worlds under the watch of Philemon and Igor can summon Personas in the Pantheon proper rather than being limited to specific areas, not only to maintain the delicate balance of the Pantheon, but also to prevent the events of Innocent Sin from repeating themselves in the Pantheon, which the party there know all too well.
    • Are no strangers to fighting Mini Mechas on foot or even non-Persona-using humans, whereas the Persona-users after them only got used to it after ascension to the Pantheon (unless one counts Labrys and Sho Minazuki prior to them getting their own Personas).
    • Stay away from Mystery Food X as soon as they heard of it and its effects. This is double for Eikichi and Maya after they inadvertently got a taste of it on separate occasions. Their comments? It makes yogurt ramen (for Eikichi) and spaghetti di kusaya (for Maya) delectable in comparison.
  • Exclusive to Tatsuya:
    • Is one of the few people that has enough guts to punch frickin' Philemon in the face when he was in a 'jackass' state. That was so hard and meaningful that it inspired Philemon to clean up his act. But still, Tatsuya has decided to keep a careful eye on him.
    • Of the Persona-users who have come after him, he gets along best with Yu and Mitsuru, finding the former's leadership qualities excellent and empathizing with the latter's once-lonesome existence, sense of solitary responsibility and difficulties with trust. He opened up to Mitsuru about his situation involving both of his timelines, and she, having learned to trust others over time as well as being surrounded by similar people in S.E.E.S., has gotten him to recognize that he's surrounded all over the Pantheon by folks who've dealt with Nyarlathotep and similar antagonistic forces before and so he doesn't need to just deal with everything alone. Though he still maintains his usual cool demeanor, he's embraced his friendships more since then.
    • Has found a very good friend in the form of Edward Elric due to the similarities they share. It took awhile before they actually chatted, but they got along pretty well. That said, they do quite vocally disagree on whether Philemon or the Truth is a bigger jerk, fulfilling Ed's seemingly required pattern that every friendship he has be a vitriolic case.
    • The reason Tatsuya can pilot vehicles flawlessly without any prior training (like a submarine, a blimp, or even a Mini-Mecha) is because of the power of rumors in his Sumaru City. Specifically, a rumor spread that Tatsuya was "good with machines" because he was always seen driving and tinkering on his motorcycle, which he was already good at by default.
    • Has the special ability to fall asleep absolutely anywhere.
    • As someone who closed off his feelings to avoid pain, as well as the need to be self-reliant, Squall sort of gets the feeling (though in Tatsuya's case, it's his own fault, because he refused to forget as was required, this allowing Nyarlathotep to strike once more).
    • Once commiserated with Future Trunks following the destruction of the half-Saiyan's home timeline.
  • Exclusive to Maya:
    • Having lent her power to her twice over, not to mention having a grudge against Nyarlathotep, Artemis has offered to help Maya should she need it.
    • No, Maya doesn't smoke. The two times she did were to trip the smoke alarm for good reasons.
    • Not many know this, but canned crab is Maya's favorite food. Her fridge is stuffed with them.
    • Is a terrible cook. She's also so bad at cleaning her room that when Katsuya saw it, he assumed it was ransacked... just like Mitsuru would assume of Junpei's room a few years later.
    • You won't catch her in a swimsuit; she has severe burn scars on her body from Tatsuya Sudou's arson and is highly self-conscious about them.
      • Speaking of burn scars, Kabal and Joshua Graham can relate to that, even if hers aren't nearly as severe as theirs: Graham was bandaged from head to toe like a mummy, and Kabal's ensemble serves as the reason why he's still alive.
    • Is advised against going to any vehicle. Not even with her 'Universal Driving License'. The badness of her driving skills is nearly on par with Yukari Tanizaki. Unsurprisingly, the two ended up bonding over being the only two people willing to be passengers to each other's driving.
      • Once drove with Yukari and crashed into a sleeping Beerus. Her car was totaled as a result, though he slept through the entire thing, and had kicked the car into oblivion on reflex. Though Whis protected the two women from sharing in the vehicle's destruction, Maya's been afraid to drive anywhere Beerus could be ever since.
      • Well, trains are fine, so long as there's someone to tell when to stop.
    • Had been approached by the Investigation Team to dig into some odd information about Makoto Yuki and his oddly-nicknamed female counterpart, whose real name was recently found to be Kotone Shiomi. They think a timeline mess similar to what she experienced with the Other Side may be related to Kotone's existence and the confusing details therein.
    • As a reporter, she's gotten acquainted with her colleagues Frank West and Lois Lane. She thinks J. J. Jameson is at least a better chief than Mizuno despite his stigma against masked heroes except Spider-Man after discovering his secret. As for Aya Shameimaru, she doesn't really approve of the tengu's...work ethic.
    • Her ultimate goal is to help everyone achieve their dreams. However, this can't include those whose dreams are to prevent another's (or even those of many people) from being achieved, like mass murder, world domination, or causing despair for the sake of it.
  • Exclusive to Lisa:
    • Having been her Personas in a sense, Lisa has the favor of Eros and Aphrodite, and they're willing to lend her a favor if need be.
    • Occasionally gets unwanted support from the more psychotic members of the Yandere Squad for her feelings towards Tatsuya. And given most of this "support" comes with the offer to "remove" Maya (and Jun)... yeah, she's not having any of it.
    • Thanks to Eikichi talking about her during his time in the Pantheon before her, she quickly bonded with Chie over kung fu movies and being self-proclaimed martial artists in their teams. She also got familiar with Rise over their experiences with showbiz (even if the support member has more experience with it), and Ann over their Caucasian heritage and the stereotyping that comes with it.
    • Is really ashamed of what she's done in the past, having dated older men for money and experimented with drugs.
    • Having had parents who had forced the Japanese culture onto her, while she has no issue with it herself, parents who force their ideals onto their children are parents she doesn't like.
  • Exclusive to Eikichi:
    • Given that his Ultimate Persona is Hades, he got along well with the one in the Pantheon, as that Hades was very pleased that Eikichi didn't treat him as some vilified god. Plus, how to turn down an opportunity to troll Demeter with stories of his married life?
    • While he may be Not So Different with fellow narcissist Vega, Eikichi is repulsed at him, there's just some lines that those who tend to self-promote their sexiness should not cross and as far as Eikichi's concerned, Vega crossed it by ridiculing his fat past.
      • During his feud with Vega, Eikichi had an encounter (and eventually team-up) with Reika Aoki/Cure Beauty, due to her also opposing Vega. Eikichi was actually impressed with what Reika stood for, it reminded him with how he fell in love with his girlfriend back when he was a fat kid (and the tribulations that come with it, good and bad). Ever since, they became quite fast friends, though Eikichi still respects her by not hitting on her.
    • Has a band called 'Gas Chamber', but hasn't gotten a house in the house of Music. The reason is that despite his claims that his songs are just as dead sexy as he is, other gods think otherwise.
    • He's quite fond of one of Yu Narukami's friends, Chie Satonaka in particular because she reminded him of Lisa. Also once took a picture with Kanji Tatsumi along with two other mortals. One of said mortals, Shinjiro Aragaki from the S.E.E.S. team, has since been revealed to have ascended in a coma awhile back now.
  • Exclusive to Jun:
    • Having lent his strength three times over, Mercury eventually found the time to meet Jun, Chronos showing up shortly after, and they talked about their feelings over what had happened in Sumaru City, including the pain of their failure to stop Nyarlathotep that time. After promising to lend their aid if they can should he ask, the two Greek/Roman deities parted ways.
    • Hobby-wise, Jun understands flower language (花言葉, hanakotoba), and gets along with most florists in the Pantheon like Aerith and Princess Elise. He also likes astrology.
    • As someone who was a "main villain" before, even if Jun was tricked into doing it by Nyarlathotep, he finds common ground with Starlight Glimmer. He's even had parent troubles (at least on one side) just like her.
      • He also gets along with the Digidestined Ken for similar former villain positions and eventual redemptions.
    • Jun has no attraction to women, and any female pursuers are better off staying friends.
    • Being someone who also utilizes flowers in battle, Jun gets along with Mamoru/Tuxedo Mask, who in turn has made attempts to offer... flower-throwing tips. No one quite knows how much progress is made in that department.
  • Exclusive to Ulala:
    • Quickly grew tired of the jokes that come with how her name sounds come the 30th time.
    • Used to be obsessed with fortune telling, but her experiences with Wang Long Chizuru has tarnished her opinions on them enough that she treats them with a bit more skepticism.
    • Despite being The Lad-ette, she's still a much better housekeeper and cook than Maya... which says more about Maya than it does Ulala.
    • Having had troubles with finding her purpose in life, through Maya talking about her before she arrived, she's found herself befriending the Cutie Mark Crusaders, who have had similar issues and even helped an adult (Trouble Shoes) with the same. What surprised her was that (at least in the TV World) they are also Persona-users.
  • Exclusive to Katsuya:
    • Having been told about by Maya and Tatsuya, Helios eventually approached him one day and vowed to offer assistance should he ever ask for it.
    • Even if they're on the other side of the law, Katsuya has no issues with working alongside the Phantom Thieves; he knows firsthand what it's like to be constrained by and going up against corrupt government officials. Also, he has worked together with a "wire tapper", so...
    • Some find it ridiculous that he wonders if the penal code applies to demons, and that he will even interrogate them as a contact option! Of course, given all the fantastical stuff in the Pantheon, that's not exactly strange anymore.
    • He had sacrificed his dream of becoming a pastry chef (sorry, patissier) in favor of a more "pragmatic" job as a police officer to support his brother. While he's got his share of sympathies from those who made similar decisions, the strangest came from the "Spartan" Pantheon.
    • Despite being the elder brother, Katsuya is actually shorter than Tatsuya (well, by one inch, admittedly).
    • Despite his allergies, thanks to his initial Persona being feline in appearance, he has a soft spot for cats in general.
  • Exclusive to Baofu:
    • In battle, he uses coins, special chakrams, or any other round object that he can flick with his thumbs, and they can hit just as hard as any bullet thanks to him practicing Qi Gong and being a skilled martial artist; he focuses combined physical and spiritual energy onto the projectiles he uses, resulting in the bullet-like force.
    • Had actually met Tatsuya and Jun when they were kids after he stumbled out of a bar. He had lectured them about their goals in life, and they were among those who heard his real name. Some thought he was drunk due to mourning Miki Asai's death, but this meeting took place five years before that. In actuality, he had gotten drunk in that time because he achieved success so easily due to his innate talent, but was lacking direction in the same time.
    • Back before he met Maya and company, he hated his power of Persona and thought of it only as a tool. That was because he had lost his lover during the time he first awakened it. Eventually, he came to terms with it thanks to Maya's intervention.
    • Has since moved on to a new job in finding missing people together with Ulala. However, he also sometimes gets back to wiretapping thanks to some in the GUAG actually being tolerant of this... so long as it's the bad guys he's tapping.
      • That said, he's aware that he's behind in the times in terms of infiltration methods, and hopes to learn what he can. And so while he took an afternoon snack at Café Leblanc (coffee on the house by Sojiro), he felt the presence of not just a Persona, but one similar to yet different from his. As it happens, Futaba was helping her dad for the time being and it was her Prometheus he was sensing. After a short chat with her, she redirected him to the White Hats Division.
    • As someone who's also abandoned the law in order to better dispense justice, Garrus finds a kindred spirit in Baofu.

Lesser Gods

The Peregrine Falcons Squad and The Sparrows TeamMembers , Divine Soldiers of Conflict Disparity (Marco: Marchrius Dennis Rossi; Tarma: Tarmicle Roving III, Eri: Memphis Bomb Princess, Fio: Fiolina Germi)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/metal_slug.png
Left to Right: Eri, Marco, Tarma and Fio
  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: The Metal Slug.
  • Theme Song: Character Select
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: War, Armies, Guns, Tanks, Teamwork, Friendship, Combat
  • Heralds: Nadia Cassel and Trevor Spacey (MS 4), Walter Ryan and Tyra Elson (MS Advance), Nathalie Neo, Roberto Nicola, and Alisa Stewart (MS Mobile)
  • Allies: Leona Heidern, Most ascended deities from The King of Fighters, V.S.S.E., John Rambo, William J. Blazkowicz, SCP-516
  • Enemies: Evil Aliens, Evil Undead, Millenium, HYDRA
  • Acquiantanced with: Skips
  • These four individuals are no strangers to war, having saved the world numerous times while fighting the evil General Morden and his Rebel Army from taking over the world. Marco, Tarma, Eri and Fio found themselves in the pantheon after many heard of their adventures and how they have overcome threats far bigger in number and always suceed in the end. For that, they were awarded a title and a proper temple for them to reside.
  • They are one of those rare groups that have faced almost anything that can you imagine. From entire armies, zombies, aliens, mutants, giant crabs, even an Eldritch Abomination once. So when they were soon found in the pantheon, they didn't feel slightly impressed by the sheer craziness that the pantheon offers and so carried on with their lives. That's one of the reasons that they get along with Skips although at first they were doubting him considering previous experiences with yetis.
  • They were glad to find Leona Heidern among the pantheon ranks, since they have worked together in the past. Especially Fio, who once went on a mission with her and have remained very good friends.
  • Also very acquiantanced with the good deities of the King of Fighters Tournament thanks to their comrades Ralph, Clark and Leona being regular contenders. Even Fio once participated in said tournament as so did Marco in another event.
  • They enlisted in GUAG after hearing about the pantheon being stuck in a four way conflict between the GUAG, GUAE, GUAC and GUAL. It's technically not that different from what they are used to in their homeworld but they hope that their involvement could turn the tide towards the side of good and finally achieve the possibility of peace.
  • The team is known for having piloted a wide array of vehicles or even armed animals with cannons. The most important one is the Metal Slug, a mobile tank who can duck and jump among other things and has been present in most of their adventures. They even have one of them present in his temple, but they usually take it to the House of Technology since they tend to take a beating. They later met SCP-516, who was a sentient tank that also fought valiantly for its homeland and holds the four of them in high regard because of that.
  • Exclusive to Marco:
    • After joining the regular army, Marco quickly became the leader of the Peregrine Falcons and alongside his friend Tarma has been the biggest asset to them in the fight against General Morden. The mention of the latter is known to dry Marco into a fit of uncontrollable rage, since he is responsible for the death of many of his friends.
    • He is from Italian-American origin and it shows. Of all the ascended crew, he gets along the best with Rocky Balboa and Rambo, resembling the latter a lot
    • Marco is actually a very good computer technician when he is off duty, to the point that he is sometimes creates computer viruses for fun. One of them was so powerful that they almost caused one nearby facility to launch a nuclear attack though thankfully he stopped it before it could get any worse and he plans to take that secret to his grave. In the pantheon he is quite good friends with other friendly hackers like Ed or the San Francisco Dedsec Chapter, who he has ocassionally aided in stopping some of the stronger viruses to cause havoc in the pantheon.
  • Exclusive to Tarma:
    • He joined around the same time as his friend and teammate Marco, in a mission to rescue the president and has since been very close to him. Hell, he was originally the only teammate Marco had when they first went up against the Rebel Army before Eri and Fio joined them.
    • He is an excellent pilot, give him anything and he would have it figured out in seconds. It is said that once he was allowed to get into one of the big mechs held in the tresuare and he was able to pilot it flawlessly.
    • Off-duty he likes to build motorcycles, often also lending a hand to resident mechanics in the House of Technology. He is also good friends with Johnny Blaze and Francis who often got their bikes checked by Tarma.
    • Known to be a bit too fouled mouthed, often dropping a Precision F-Strike when he gets fatally hit.
  • Exclusive to Eri:
    • Eri has been living a hard life since she was born. As a kid she a leader of a gang of street kids and even when she became part of the Regular army she was cold and distant to others. She was originally a spy but later dropped out because she wasn't confortable with the job and decided to join SPARROWS. There she met Fio, who was her polar opposite in background and attitude, but overtime she warmed up to her.
    • She fond of explosives, often sneaking into the House of Explosives to gather some equipment for herself. There is a reason she is known as the Memphis Bomb Princess.
    • She gets along great with Ekichi Onizuka and Kazuma Kiryu who share a past like her as a street gang leader. Usually they tend to stick to their duties first, but they sometimes hang out when they have free time available.
  • Exclusive to Fio:
    • She was born in the wealthy Germi family, notorious for its military history and always sending their eldest son into the army. Fio's parents intended the same but following her difficult birth, her mother was unable to bear more children and so Fio became the first Germi heir to be female. Nevertheless she was raised by a loving family, which turned her in the most upbeat and cheerful of her piers.
    • While her parents support her career, they fear for her and her family since she is the only heir they have and she has no children of her own. Of course, some jokers have mentioned the possibility of hooking her up with her Peregrine Falcon teammates, particularly Marco, comments which have made her blush a little.
    • She is very close to Cassie Cage, understanding how it feels to have the weight of being the child of a famous military family. In Cassie's case her parents aren't even together anymore, making their vitriol much more noticeable although when Cassie introduced Fio to both Johnny and Sonya, they were surprisingly nice towards her.

    General Tarquin 
General Tarquin, God of Initial Villain Unthwartablity (Tarquin)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tarquin_669.gif
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: He in his helmet and armor, raising his finger as a teacher pointing something out, above a box containing one of his "Tarquin's Tips"
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Great knowlege in the story structure, but not his place in it, wearing scary armor, being Evil Counterpart to several people at once, Evil Overlord, Dragon-in-Chief, Evil Genius, The Bluebeard, The Chessmaster, Crazy-Prepared, very cool and pragmatic, hot despite his age, self-centered, Villain Of Another Story
  • Domain: Evil, Knowledge, Theater, War
  • Allies: Lex Luthor, David Xanatos, Grand Admiral Thrawn, Draco Malfoy, The Narrator
  • Enemies: Elan, Abed Nadir, Light Yagami, The Joker, Lelouch, The Question
  • Rumored to have created the Evil Overlord List. Even if he didn't, he is clearly trying to standardize it. Many other gods are trying to stop him, because the last thing the world needs is for every villain to become as savvy as him.
  • Often seen visiting houses of Knowledge and Theatre.
  • Lelouch wants to defeat him to destroy his evil reign and Light wants to dispatch him as a part of some scheme. Knowing he has no chance against their combined skills and knowledge, Tarquin does everything he can to fuel the flames of their rivalry, so they'll keep fighting each other.
  • Joker wants to kill him for turning down his offer for Villain Team-Up. While his explanation that he "doesn't work with loose cannons" was considered a compliment, Joker has a reputation to maintain.
  • Rather fond of Yuno Gasai and had used several of her methods to "win over" his soon-to-be wifes. However, he still won't work with her - again, he doesn't work with loose cannons. Especially when she turned good.
  • There were rumors he has a plan to get Azula back into sanity, have her reclaim position of Goddess of Manipulative Bastards and then torture her until she breaks again and agrees to marry him. This is supposed to trigger a large variety of reactions from both mortals and other gods that he will harvest and use to steal both Draco Malfoy's and Griffith's positions at the same time. Tarquin denied it, saying that such a plan, while possible, would be way too risky and there are much easier and safer ways to obtain more power. Most of the other gods were convinced. The Question just added another conspiracy to unfold to his list.
  • Is very self-centered, when finding about anything suspicious going on, he is likely to assume it concerns him personally in some way.
  • His biggest weakness is an inability to recognize when he's not the Big Bad of a particular story. When this goes into full swing, his Genre Savvy can backfire, rather spectacularly.
  • Although previously judged a Greater God, in reality Tarquin's power level is much lower. After the incident where His son Elan threw him off an airship for killing his brother Nale, Tarquin was realized to be misjudged and his power level lowered. Tarquin is still angry about this.
  • THEN it was decided his original trope was redundant with Genre Savvy, loosing his title and position to a relative nobody like Abed Nadir, on top of anything else, utterly broke him. Deemed too valuable to let loose, the Grand United Alliance of Evil stepped in to give him a new title, the one he had built his life around, that narrative logic dictates that evil is guarantied to succeed until the finale of the story. This new title has also granted him a seat in the house of Narrative, where he is expected to twist fiction to serve their designs, but mostly his own, but this serves them well enough that this is tolerable, for now.
    • His new position has found him a new ally in the Narrator. They share the desire to create stories for themselves only to have the heroes to completely throw them away. While the Narrator is ecstatic to have someone willing to go along with his story, Tarquin expects to finally be given his due and be made legendary, he's still unable to accept his place in the narrative.
  • Also present in Evil Actions.

  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Randomness, Crossdressing, Talking and Singing Animals, Random Events Plot moment, actually plot-relevant
  • Domains: Animal, Chaos, Trickery
  • Followers: Grimbo, The Goanna
  • Superior: Don Bluth
  • Allies: Charlie Barkin
  • Enemies: King K. Rool
  • Ascended in a massive, freaky, suggestive all-singing-all-dancing show that nobody has ever talked about since. 'Cept Deadpool, but he's weird like that.
  • Rumors still abound, however, that he still shows up and tries to convince various deities to do a dance number with him. These rumors remain unconfirmed, mostly because very few ever actually talk about them afterwards.
  • Very few realize this, but he's not actually representative of his position as many believe. While his appearance in his film certainly cames out of nowhere and is strange even in-context, it actually set up a couple important plot elements: Anne Marie gets sick as a result of being in the water for too long, and Charlie's musical-sounding howl that makes King Gator fond of him (and kicks off the musical number) ends up coming back in the ending, his pained howl summoning back the alligator at the end to save Charlie and kill Carface.
    • As stated by Don Bluth in an interview, he used this song as an example of his principle that "No song could be just stuck in without a purpose. Every one had to advance the plot or enlighten the audience in some way".
    • Doesn't make the scene any less weirder, though.
  • King Gator was over the moon when he learned his good friend with the amazing voice had ascended. He's looking forward to making lots of music together. Charlie still finds his very being incredibly confusing and overwhelming, but the huge and powerful gator is handy to have around in a pinch, so Charlie humors him.

  • The Ricardos' efforts to add more of their followers into the Pantheon proper had gone without a hitch. But there was a time when their authority was seriously challenged. A group of four individuals challenged the couple for the thrown. They received a massive following, both due their immense popularity and the fact that many of the Ricardos' followers drew inspiration from them. The Court of the Gods had no choice but to decide on a winner, pitting the two groups against each other in a stand-up comedy competition. Seinfeld's group was poised to claim victory after a lukewarm response from their rivals... only for Costanza to make a joke that managed to offend every deity in attendance. They may have lost the battle, but won the hearts of enough followers to become deified themselves.
    • Despite their popularity among followers, they relent the fact that many people these days consider them unfunny. They are quick to point out that many imitators learn those tricks from them. That caused them to have strained relations with most comedic deities.
    • Things took a heated turn when their archrivals from Friends successfully ascended. The two groups battled over ratings throughout The '90s and their followers argue over which series is the best Sitcom of all time. The Seinfeld group are more aggressive in contesting that title.
    • The only sitcom protagonists they seem to truly respect are their hand-picked high priests. Still, the group are wary of them, as Dennis and his crew are eager to claim the titles for themselves. They begrudgingly congratulated the Gang upon their own ascension.
  • Seinfeld still performs stand-up comedy, now doing so in the House of Theater. Many flock to see him work his magic on the mic, albeit accompanied by a few hecklers.
  • The House of Lust was delighted to serve a group that frequents their grounds. Even George was able to get lucky with a couple women. They all like to date and discuss their escapades with the deities who reside there, depending on the sexual orientation. The exception would be fellow casanova Charlie Harper. Elaine successfully got him and his friend Barney to fight over her, challenging them to race around the House of Justice in their underwear for her. It was all a ploy by her group to humiliate them and have the men end up in jail. Charlie and Barney instigated a prank war on the group ever since.
  • Inspired by the classic Sitcom Arch-Nemesis Newman, the Janitor continued where Newman left off, tormenting the group with pranks and insults. Red joined the Janitor on the pranks, hoping to teach those younger folks a lesson in respecting their elders.
  • No matter what they do or how much they plan their schemes, their plans almost always end up in failure. Only this time they know karma has a patron. They stormed Earl's temple and demanded their fortunes to be changed. When Earl explained they needed to do good deeds to earn good karma... they gave up and left. Except Kramer, who gave Earl a quick hug before leaving. Kramer always had the best luck and suspected Earl was responsible for it.
  • Kramer entered the House of Commerce, hoping that someone would invest in Kramerica Industries to make it a budding company. Richie Rich thought it would be a good idea and gave him some money. It ended up a complete disaster, with Kramer arguing with his friends over the flimsiest of topics. Not even Liz Lemon could save Kramerica Industries from bankruptcy.
  • Bugs Bunny couldn't help but have fun toiling with the jerks. Their behavior made it all to easy for him to prank them. The four declared war and tried every tactic on the rabbit, but Bugs proved to be to great of an opponent to defeat. Bugs did eventually lay off on them once he felt bored.
  • To their surprise, they were greeted with none other than Lucifer himself. The Creator of Chaos happened to be a huge fan of the group, pleased how they spawned descendants that aligned to his philosophy. While he couldn't give them the title they wanted, he did offer his assistance if ever there was someone that needed a comeuppance.
  • Norma Desmond was recently visited by Kramer. The man felt a bit of remorse for her hard luck as of late, just as his group is struggling to make headway with younger people. The others scoffed at the peace offering, so Kramer went off on his own. Norma took the chance and let him in. After some days, it became apparent that she wanted to keep Kramer in her temple forever. He ended up climbing down the window at night and ran off on foot. He doesn't visit her anymore, but he still takes pity on her.
  • Has outright banned all mice deities from their temple due to Kramer's fear of the creatures. Clowns aren't allowed either, and he might well be justified with the current ones in the Pantheon.
    • Likewise, Constanza has sworn never to set foot in the House of Health & Diseases, even when all the doctors in the Pantheon insistent on his safety from disease. George wouldn't take the chance, calling doctors to come to his temple instead.
  • Elaine was surprised to find a number of tomboyish characters in the Pantheon, being all to familiar with girly girls in her own world. Many look up to her as one of the first woman to keep up with the men. She has been particularly fond of Princess Daisy, hoping to help the Tomboy Princess to surpass Princess Peach as the leading princess.
  • Costanza went over to the House of Sports, eager to show off his skills to the great Babe Ruth. The God of Baseball was skeptical with his skill, but it all leaked away when George proved to be a great hitter. Though he scoffed at Costanza calling it "not complicated,'' the two eventually became friends.
  • Pippi Longstocking would like to remind you that just because she's from Europe doesn't make her associated with Hitler. Neither does she think it's a funny joke.
  • The guys have tried their hardest not to let the Pantheon see Elaine dance. Unfortunately, Trollkaiger eagerly released a video of her. The results... weren't pretty. Her employers can't even take hers seriously anymore.
  • The group admits that Konata Izumi may be the only deity that can top the randomness of their conversations. One conversation with her lasted days and went through more topics than what could be found on a dictionary.
  • Barry B. Benson seems to get along with Jerry, as he's essentially his bee equivalent. The rest of the Seinfeld gang get a bit weirded out when they talk to each other.
  • Also reside in the House of Popularity.

  • Misao was an ordinary and plain school girl who never stood out amongst her peers. But then she went missing for three months, with no one knowing what happened to her and believed to be dead. While a few of her classmates were joking that she would go and haunt the school, the building got hit by an earthquake and the place was crawling with evil spirits. It turned Misao really did curse the school and her spirit wouldn't be able to rest until someone found out what happened to her and gather around the elements related to her dissapearance.
    • Turns out Misao didn't have the best life at school. Frequently bullied and made fun of for being a simpleton, she caught the attention of one of the students she had a crush on, Tohma, after one of her bullies decided to expose her feelings to him. Tohma accepted and even proposed her to become his girlfriend, which she happily agreed but that only got worse for her as not only was Tohma seeing another girl but her feelings for Tohma were shown all over school in form of poems and her bullying only got worse, even at one point getting raped. After that last particular event she was found by one of the teachers, who conforted the grieving Misao over what just happened only for Mr. Kurata to try and force himself on her after taking advantage of her fragile demeanor and Misao understandably rejected his advances, angering him and murdering the poor girl in a fit of rage. Having become a vengeful spirit, Misao wanted nothing but to get revenge on those that wronged her and punish them with death and painful afterlife.
  • She ascended shortly after she got closure thanks to her friend Aki, someone very dear to her and the one that broke the curse. Arriving at the pantheon was a surprise for Misao since she had another idea for an afterlife, but she doesn't find it too bad. Nowadays she is much more cheerful, as a way to thank Aki for making her realize the error of her ways and it is said her smile is very charming.
  • A bit ashamed of her tenure as a vengeful spirit, since she let her anger overtake her and harshly punish the ones she took to the grave with a Fate Worse than Death, although many would argue that Yoshino and Mr. Kurata deserved it, even if Misao has already let them go. Hisako, being the resident Vengeful Ghost, sympathized with Misao after hearing her story and is glad that she was able to leave it all behind and not become another evil spirit.
  • Plenty of deities all around related to her being a victim of bullying, Carrie White in particular is very familiar with the feeling of being played by a boy you like and being taken advantage of, not feeling any sympathy for the four students that made Misao's life hell. At first Misao was a bit unnerved by Carrie's powers but found out she had so much in common with her that it didn't even bother her in the end.
  • Curious to meet more people that had to deal with their inner demons and wanting to help them, Misao came accross Simon Henriksson. Before approaching him, he heard of his issues with depression, heartbreak and loneliness; most of which Misao felt at one point and so the two established an unlikely friendship, with Simon being reminded of his friend Sophie in a way when he talks with Misao. While there's the fact that Simon has killed people, and in certain scenarios even kill the people that tried to help him, she feels she isn't much better in that department as she too got people killed, even if she had a good reason for doing so. Even then, the two have learned to cope with what they've done and have become good friends, with Misao being really happy that Simon was able to regain the ability to walk in the pantheon
    • Simon later ended up introducing Misao to Dollface, as he felt he would need having more female friends. Dollface instantly hugged Misao after she told her about what happened to her and coldly remarked that those that died deserved it, even if Misao doesn't think so. Dollface thinks she is too nice for her own sake and doesn't fault her for that and swore if he ever saw those people herself, he would undoubtably bash their skulls to the ground. She also heard that the entity that granted the curse to Misao never actually screwed her over, considering the ever presence of Calypso in Dollface's own universe, she is pleasantly surprised.
    • Another acquiantance of both Simon and Dollface turned out to be a small sobbing kid by the name of Isaac. Initially scared that Misao was another scary ghost given that she didn't have the friendliest of look, she calmed him down after explaining she is just a regular person and was horrified after hearing about Isaac's story. Considering how sensitive the little boy is, she tried what Aki did to calm her down and decided to become friends with Isaac, warmly smiling as to make him happier. It worked for the most part, he tends to cry less when she is around.
  • One of the most upsetting things that happened to her besides dying is that Yoshino forced her to spend some time with a male student in the male bathroom, essentially she was set up only to be raped and that happenned before she was murdered. For that reason, she relates a lot to what Sakura Matou has beent through, even worse since she had to endure it for most of her life. Misao also pities Mitsuko Souma for being another victim of rape, but she can't condone the evil actions she has done even if she has a Freudian Excuse.
  • Understandably not fond of bullies. She dislikes Eliza Reagan for embodying the worst aspects of both Yoshino and Saotome, two people that made her life hell, with Eliza herself barely even caring about Misao and thinking she is just another gloomy loser. That dislike also extends to her brother Neil.
    • Gary Smith is someone she considers to be the biggest asshole she is ever met, surprising considering she is not stranger to nasty individuals. Turns out that not only did he start targetting her for petty reasons like Yoshino did in the past, but he is such a sociopath that it makes Mr. Kurata, the man the murdered her, look like a sweet guy in comparison, and Gary hasn't even murdered people (yet, although there is implications that he actually murdered someone). Gary also somehow caught wind of the nasty photos that were taken from Misao naked and he almost shared with everybody before his long time nemesis Jimmy Hopkins stepped in and chased him off. Jimmy later explained Misao that Gary is a friendless loser that she should stay the hell away from and then told her if she ever has troubles with bullies she should hit him up, considering that's what he does.
  • She once thought that Chihiro Fujisaki was a girl, like many thought in the past, but after all confusion was cleared, she realized she had a lot of common with him. Both bullied in the past for their appearance, which caused several psychological issues and ended up being manipulated by others. She is even sad that once he tried to grow as a person, he got killed because for it but what brought the two together was that both were able to develop into better people posthumously.
  • Even if she know is at peace with herself, she had developed a bit of mistrust towards teachers considered what Hideki Kurata did to her, not helped by the presence of notoriously Sadist Teachers like Agatha Trunchbull. While there aren't any teachers that sexually prey on their students in the pantheon, Max Caulfield had to deal with one in the past and if she ever was present in Misao's school, she would have undoubtably prevented her death if possible.
  • She still have mixed feeling about Tohma, the boy she had a crush on, but for her own sake she has tried to let those feelings go. She considers her Yandere attitude she had towards her as an undead spirit to be her Old Shame and that also almost got her invited to the GUAC Yandere Squad, with Misao obviously turning down the offer.
  • She shares universe with both Aya and Alfred Drevis, both also having experienced a curse brought upon Alfred from his wife. While Misao never personally met her, she heard that Miss Library physically resembles Aya, implying she is a clone of her. That, and both curses may have involved the strange salesman that appeared before Aya and her friend Aki.

  • Pitied by: Most Gods pertaining to Abrahamic Faith, but most especially Both Gods (Bob and the other God), Noah, The Occult Research Club, including their version of Archangel Michael
  • Fears: Guts, The Ashen One (for the Girl)
  • Deep within an abandoned Gothic City, there were two inhabitants going through the desolated space. One is an unknown girl, who holds and protects an egg from being broken, and another, a mysterious soldier, who has no clear motives on his behalf. However, anything comprehensible from the tale is rather dubious to tell, leaving many questions. What is clear however is that, the egg the girl is carrying is the main reason why the journey is a rather convincing to try to understand.
  • To be more specific, Angel's Egg is rather difficult to interpret. The story focuses on two characters on what seems to be an abandoned city (well, an abandoned ''world'' left by God that is) while exploring the vastness of the place. While such, the Soldier asks if whether or nor the egg holds any significance to the girl, to which she clings to it in such a protective and careful manner. The egg's significance may attribute to many interpretations, however what is clear is that by the end of the story, not only does the Soldier breaks the egg, but the world is slowly seen to be a horrifying future of Noah's Ark, where the boat is capsized and the world is doomed to be lifeless. As for the girl, she became a living stone, which joins with other statues to a space-orb and the Soldier, well, his fate seems to remain unknown.
  • Their ascensions towards the Pantheon was met with massive confusion in regards to understanding their story. Majority of the House of Knowledge have tried their best to see anything that can help internalize what was going on between the two and especially the importance of the egg. The silence of the girl alongside the film's minimalistic nature pretty much makes it a lost cause. Though, thanks to that, it allows many to have different interpretations on the girl and her devotion to the egg.
  • The silence the duo maintains in the Pantheon is rather awe-inspiring, as they walk through the place with ease, which explains why they do not have a temple to begin with (some have suggested the capsized Ark, but it has not worked out). While this made their exploration worthwhile, it also captivated many deities to explore about the two, especially the egg that the girl clings to.
  • While both of them ascended for the same reason, it should be noted that the duo's relationship is very mixed, mainly to the fact that the Soldier broke the egg and resulted to the Girl becoming a stone statue, even while in the beginning, the Girl was being nice to him and protective towards her egg. Nowadays, the duo are rather separate, but the Soldier, in his instincts protect the Girl in most scenarios, though she will just run away in a safe distance after the Soldier's arrival.
    • Despite this, the Soldier is often seen as a father figure for some, since he did protect her generally against the shadows of the town. That said, his relations with Lee, Clementine, Joel and Ellie are both of approval and discontent; the Soldier's protectiveness towards the girl was applauded but his actions in regards to breaking the egg made the applause short lived.
    • Arya Stark has also been seen visiting the two, stating that she is often reminded of her relationship with the Hound, whom she had forgiven and has become, much like the Soldier, a father figure of sorts. However, it did not last when the two saw her numerous targets and assassinations. The Girl in particular always runs away from her, even if the Lady Stark has no ill intentions.
  • For being silent, the Robed Figure sees relations towards the two, given that both their respective universes are beautifully deserted places with large amounts of figurative imagery. The Robed Figure also seems to understand the girl's clinginess to the egg, often letting her go, but the girl asks who figure was. To this day, their silence has been a reverberated background whenever they meet.
  • Any God who has appeared within the Abrahamic Faith has seen what their world has become and have rather unfortunate reactions towards it. The two Gods, as in Bob and the Alpha and Omega God, have seen the world being a result of their God abandoning it, often comforting the two regarding it. It also gave insight to whether or not the two had relations towards the world they inhabited, with Bob denying any links towards him and that place, and the other giving a rather unclear answer as to if he had connections towards the two.
    • Noah however is the most affected. Hearing what happened to the Ark in their world, he fell to his knees and cried in sorrow in what would be a terrible fate befallen to the remains of all living life, being left to die. Though he would later grow into shock as he realized that both have features being close to Gods or perhaps being Godsent.
    • When news sparked about the Ark in its overboarded state, YVHV immediately denied any relation to their world, only stating it to be a heretical statement to what he sees as his lawful dominion. Upon hearing about the two people, he tasked his various servants to take both of them for questioning but the other people who pitied them have stopped any progress on their capture, making them an elusive catch. The Absolute Lawmaker has shown his determination to get rid of the two, even so far as to send his herald Metatron to capture the two.
  • In regards to the topic of eggs: Billy Hatcher seems fond of the Girl, seeing her egg to be quite unique. He has offered some of his eggs but she mostly declines his request, often citing that the egg is the only precious thing for her. The Digidestined also share her concern, since they too take care of eggs, Digieggs that is.
    • Her determination of one egg also caught the eye of Horton since he too was dedicated to protecting one thing, which was a plant (also a town filled with Whovians). The elephant of the Jungle of Nool has pledged his dedication to protect the egg as well, though he also tells the Soldier to stay back if he dares to ruin the moment.
  • Details about the duo's homeworld are rather iffy, but one thing that is confirmed that it is basically Noah's Ark, but lifeless to a complete degree. The Occult Research Club sees this as disheartening for them, as the entire club has the same scenario, hence why many occult powers exist in their degree, but it is Gasper who is saddened the most, especially seeing how the girl, who looks innocuous, is placed in such a harsh and dying world.
    • Their version of Archangel Michael, upon seeing the duo, broke out of his vulgar attitude and shifted into a more humanizing form with pity and sentimental heart. Seeing how the girl in particular got affected after the egg broke and the Noah's Ark abandoned and forever overturned, he could only pray and offer guidance to her life. His reaction to the Soldier however was with undaunting rage, following the latter was the sole reason for the fate of the Girl after the egg broke.
  • The news of another abandoned world left Chuck Shurley in bemusement, seeing that he too left his role as God, and eventually brought Earth into hellbent chaos. With the two being witnesses to the world, he could only wish he would visit their world so that he can wonder in awe the perils of a dying world, in his own amusement.
  • One day, the girl unexpectedly encountered one of the Angry Birds, which have been protective of their nest and eggs. Upon closer inspection between the two, the sentient birds have banded together to join in her protection and aid, especially if its anything related to the egg and its contents, even though there might be hints that there may be nothing inside. The birds also have a slow dislike towards the Soldier for breaking the egg in the first place.
  • Both Guts and Casca have met the two and so far, they only avoid the former for his tenacity and brutal feats, something that would leave the girl scarred of her life. The latter however sees sympathy for the girl (as for the Soldier, more of shame) as her purity and potential looks of a Godsent can almost relate to her. The little Girl could only tell that she is willing to talk to her more if Guts is not around.
  • There has been conversations and rumors about the two and the Ashen One. Some say that this was because of one time where the Ashen One encountered a being similar to the girl in the Ringed City, one who was not only possibly a Godsent, but also had an egg clutched into her body. Upon breaking it, it revealed the true nature of the city. The girl, hearing this, ran away from him after the first encounter, and the Soldier, asking whether or not this is true. The latter also pointed out that he/she encountered a remnant of the Ringed City [[spoiler after he touched the egg, seeing another person with a Crucifix as a weapon]], confusing the Soldier even more.
    • What is more interesting is that a certain Slave Knight approached the girl with honor, seeing she looks like the Painter he has been devoted to for so long. After announcing himself to the girl, he vowed to protect her and the egg, seeing it as a potential gift. The Soldier however, doesn't share the same sentiments towards himself, as he sees the Slave Knight's deformed body and rather inhuman self as red flags concerning the safety of the two, which is funny since many people pointed out that he broke the egg in the first place and sealed the girl's fate.
