  • The planet of Pop Star is an idyllic one; colorful lush landscapes filled with (mostly) cute, friendly, easygoing inhabitants, and a general sense of peace. And yet, it seems that it keeps getting endangered by powerful, frightening, oft otherworldly threats that Kirby has to defeat to save the day. Perhaps the most infamous threat Kirby ever faced was the Dark Matter Horde, an eldritch force of unknown origin and motivations who exist to cover the universe in darkness.
    • It started when a single member arrived at the Rainbow Islands, shattering the Rainbow Bridges connecting the islands and possessing King Dedede as a first step to take over Dream Land. Kirby, with the help of his animal friends, collected the Rainbow Drops that form into the Rainbow Sword to exorcise Dedede and defeat the Dark Matter.
    • Later on, an entire swarm of Dark Matter began enveloping Pop Star, possessing more yet again. Kirby, with the help of Gooey and his new animal friends, defeated the Dark Matter instances while collecting Heart Stars, which resulted in Kirby armed with the Love Love Stick facing off against their leader Zero within the Hyper Zone.
    • It seems that third times the charm, as the Horde would eventually corrupt another planet named Ripple Star, which made the Ripple Queen send out a fairy named Ribbon out with their Crystal to escape the threat. However, Ripple was attacked by a group of Dark Matters, shattering the Crystal and making her crash onto Pop Star, where she met Kirby, who decided to help her find the missing shards. Teaming up with a Waddle Dee, Adeleine and King Dedede, the group would travel across planets to find the missing shards until they reached the considerably corrupted Ripple Star, where they defeated a member of the Horde named Miracle Matter. When it seemed all was well, the fully formed Crystal exorcised a large chunk of Dark Matter from the Queen, prompting the group to head to Dark Star, where Kirby and Ribbon with the Crystal fought against their leader 02, finally ending the Dark Matter threat for good.
  • For a long time, only Zero held the position of Disproportionately Evil Villains in Light-Hearted Shows, and it seemed it would stay that way until one peculiar day, in which a unusually high amount of darkness were found in Houses such as Villains, Nature, Emotion, Narrative and Food. Multiple deities, including Kirby and his friends were sent to investigate the sudden darkness where they found a large portion of the Houses coated in a suffocating darkness, with a few unfortunate deities possessed by some unknown force. It was then Kirby and friends realized that this darkness came from Dark Matter, a force they have fought multiple times before. The intervening deities exorcised the Dark Matters from the possessed deities and fought the origins of the darkness, of which there now seem to be five commanders; Dark Matter Blade/Real Dark Matter, Zero, Miracle Matter, 02, and Dark Nebula. After their defeats, the commanders and remaining Dark Matters coagulated at the House of Villainous Roles, Narrative Tone and Darkness & Shadow and just remained there. The Court of the Gods decided to grant them a shared title under Zero's title as they felt it would be better to keep them there and to monitor their activity rather than try to remove them from the realm.
  • Needless to say, Kirby and his friends were not happy to see the Dark Matter Horde ascend in greater numbers, remembering how much trouble they were back in their world. Kirby hates the Horde the most, as he had to deal with them every time they invaded. The Animal Friends and Gooey also heavily oppose them, being involved in stopping two invasions, with Gooey's existence as a rogue Dark Matter making things even more notable. King Dedede also dislikes them as he happened to be possessed everytime they invaded, with his Waddle Dee army hating them too because of that plus one of the helping Kirby collect the Crystal Shards. While Meta Knight was absent during the main three invasions, he has dealt with Dark Nebula by trying to keep its treasure chest out of reach, and is willing to point his sword at them should the need arise. Samus Aran and ROB happened to be at Pop Star during the invasion and supplied Kirby with Heart Stars, so they're also willing to fight them.
  • The Dark Matter Horde are mainly located in three spots in the Pantheon; one in Villainous Roles, another in Narrative Tone and the other in Darkness And Shadow. Sometimes a few instances are seen out of those three spots, requiring some deities to purge them before it gets worse. Being a malevolent force of darkness, it was inevitable that the other forces of darkness and villains using darkness would take an interest in the Horde and want to use them for their own purposes. The problem is that the Horde is rather chaotic and self-serving, being indiscriminant when it comes to targeting victims for corruption and possession. The House of Villains know this all to well, as they were one of the Houses who fell to their initial onslaught and even some deities residing there fell victim to their Demonic Possession. Nevertheless, villains like Melkor and Chernabog are willing to use the Dark Matter Horde for their own ends, believing that letting them do their work and not interfering would make them safe from any potential attacks from them, plus some like Master Xehanort are quite interested in studying them. Of special note is Barbatos, the God of the Dark Multiverse and Dark Matter itself. Barbatos finds the Horde quite interesting and perhaps valuable to his plans of dragging worlds down in darkness, but has to make a few precautions to control the Horde in the event they might attack him. The Dark Matter Horde tend to clash a lot with other forces of darkness like the Heartless and the Dark Star over breaches of territory. Another dark force they clash with a lot is the Taken, Oryx's army consisting of empty shells corrupted by darkness.
  • Since the Dark Matter Horde are a malevolent force of darkness, it was inevitable that the light-based deities and those who wield the light would oppose them. The House of Light & Brightness are some of their fiercest opposers, as they find the existence of Dark Matter anathema to theirs. The Entity, embodiment of White Light, also greatly hates the Horde for their destructive behaviour. The benevolent Keyblade Wielders, no stranger to malevolent darkness, have sworn to fend off against the Horde and to purge it from those possessed. Deities associated with or have domains over the sun also hate the Horde for blotting out the daylight with their vile darkness, and will show them who's boss when provoked. Meridia, Knight Templar extraordinaire and light user, wants nothing but to see the entire Horde snuffed out of existence. While the Ultramen aren't really affiliated with light, they do have experience in fighting the forces of darkness, so they're willing to fight them too. Ultraman Zero in particular dislikes their possession shtick, given that he was once possessed by Ultraman Belial's spirit.
  • One of the most notable powers of the Dark Matter Horde is to possess people and take over their bodies. While possessed, the victim's appearance changes to become more frightening, and in some cases gain powers like the Dark Matter's eye bulging out of the stomach to fire projectiles. Obviously, many deities who ended up as victims of Demonic Possession really hate the Horde, and fear being possessed by them. There also happens to be others capable of Demonic Possession like the Mage of the Beginning, Pazuzu, and the Beast. The Mage, despite her darkness powers, dislikes the Horde believing them to cause nothing but suffering, Pazuzu finds them annoying to deal with, while the Beast is merely amused by them.
  • The most striking feature of the Horde is that their bodies feature a single large eye and not much else, the rest of the body being simplistic and circular. This lead to comparisons with other mono-eyed Deities like the Twins and Monoculus. Encounters with them usually end up in a big brawl between the parties. Bill Cipher, another one-eyed Eldritch Abomination, is interested in the Dark Matters and thinks it would be fun to torment the Pines by unleashing them on the twins.
  • No one is certain about the motivations of the Dark Matter Horde, or even if they have any at all; they seemingly exist to drown the universe in darkness. However, some speculate that the Horde may be lacking emotions and that they, or at least the Dark Matter Blade attacked Pop Star out of jealousy for its inhabitants camaraderie, lacking any friends to call their own. Of course, many Deities are hesitant on actually befriending any of the Dark Matters, fearing that they may be attack or possessed. For those lacking emotions like Xemnas and Flowey, they are respectively interested and disinterested in the Horde, but both of them agree that they should be cautious with them given their chaotic nature.
  • No one knows for certain on the origins of Dark Matter, but some speculate that Void Termina may be their progenitor and perhaps the first of its kind. Given the equally ambiguous ties the Dark Lord of Destruction has to Kirby himself, this theory seemingly raises more questions than answers. While these theories have yet to be proven, it has been noted that the Dark Lord of Destruction is one of the few deities the Horde has no problem with, which disturbs many deities.
  • The first instance of Dark Matter happened to be the one who tried to corrupt the Rainbow Islands by shattering the Rainbow Bridges and possessing King Dedede, with plans to corrupt all of Dream Land. It later appeared during the second invasion of Pop Star residing in the Hyper Zone. This particular Dark Matter has the ability to change between two forms; One being its "flower" form capable of shooting out dark lightning and firing out its "petals", and its "blade" form, where it attacks using its sword which can fire sword beams.
    • As it turns out, the Haltmann Works Company has somehow managed to create a clone of Dark Matter, which Star Dream summoned when testing Meta Knight's combat credentials. It's question on exactly how the Company managed to get their hands on some Dark Matter, but what's notable is that the clone pushed Star Dream to its limits and even then it could only copy the Blade form in an incomplete state, which says something about the Horde's eldritch, incomprehensible nature.
  • Zero is the leader of the Dark Matter Horde during their second attempt at taking over Pop Star. Taking residence in the Hyper Zone, the area with the highest concentration of Dark Matter, Kirby can only fight it by collecting all the Heart Stars which combine into the Love Love Stick and then flying into the Hyper Zone, upon which it appeared after the Dark Matter's defeat. It's notable for looking quite unlike its brethren, being a stark white with a blood red eye in contrast to the mostly pitch-black Dark Matters.
    • Zero's most notable trait happens to be that it attacks by shedding its own blood and shooting it at targets. It's also capable of having its eye burst out of the white body in a bloody explosion, an act which many blood-squeamish gods thought was incredibly disgusting. Its not the only Deity to use their own blood to attack, as Jedah Dohma, Esidisi, and Mirai Kuriyama can attest to. Those three gods all dislike Zero, knowing that the Horde is likely to attack and corrupt them without hesitation.
    • This Zero should not be confused with the other Zero's of the Pantheon, which include the reploid, the Intoner, and the codename of Lelouch Lamperouge. All three detest the Eldritch Abomination for its corruptive nature, the Intoner especially as it shares multiple traits with her like color scheme and an association with blood, plus it reminds her of the Flower a bit.
  • Miracle Matter is a peculiar kind of Dark Matter stationed in the center of the darkness during the invasion of Ripple Star. Its design is peculiar even by Dark Matter standards, sharing Zero's color scheme with the design of a icosahedron. It has the unique ability to change its form into ones based on Kirby's copy abilities and can only be harmed by the same ability while in one of those forms.
    • Its design as a living icosahedron has lead to some comparisons to other menacing geometric Deities like Ramiel and Polygon Man. As with other members of the Dark Matter Horde, encounters with these Deities usually end in fights, which end up surprisingly tedious due to Miracle Matter's elemental change abilities making it invulnerable to anything that doesn't match its current form.
  • 02 is the leader of the Dark Matter Horde during the invasion of Ripple Star. Residing in the humongous mass of Dark Matter referred to as Dark Star, it can only be fought when Kirby collects all the crystal shards, in which it then exorcises the Dark Star from the Ripple Queen, which makes Kirby and his allies fly to Dark Star to confront the monster. Kirby, wielding the Crystal Gun while being carried by Ribbon, fought and defeated 02, ending the Dark Matter threat once and for all.
    • Given their similar names and appearances, many speculate that 02 is a reincarnation of Zero. Plus, the bandage below its halo may hide the wound it got when it ripped its own eye from its body. This theory hasn't been completely confirmed yet, although nobody has seen both Zero and 02 at the same time in the Pantheon.
    • 02 should not be confused with, and is in no way related to the half-Klaxosaur hybrid with a similar name. Zero Two would rather not associate herself with an Eldritch Abomination, and insinuating otherwise will earn you a beating from either parties.
  • Dark Nebula is a bit of an odd duck, as he wasn't involved in any of those three events but rather a completely unrelated one. In this story, Kirby was chasing Daroach and his gang because he believed they were holding his cake captive in a treasure chest while believing it to be precious treasure. Things didn't improve when Meta Knight arrived and took the chest for himself, not explaining why to Kirby or Daroach. After much fighting, Daroach finally opened the chest, only to find neither cake nor treasure, but rather Dark Nebula, who possessed him and took off to Gamble Galaxy, prompting Kirby to chase him, and with Daroach's Triple Star Cane, defeated the monster after exorcising the being out of Daroach's body.
    • Dark Nebula spend much of its time locked inside a treasure chest until Daroach inadvertently freed it from its confines. Even in the Pantheon, it's usually stuck inside its treasure prison, waiting for some unsuspecting deity to open it up and release it. Of course, some overly curious Deity usually ends up releasing it from its prison, forcing Kirby and a few others to combat it. Because of this, it gets lumped with other sealed threats like Nightmare, Dagon, and Typhon, so it's often on watch.
    • Dark Nebula has been noted to have some resemblances with Starro, in that they're both star-shaped, cyclopean entities capable of possessing/attaching themselves to others to control them. The two tend to clash often whenever they're near eachother, so chances of them teaming up are slim.
    • Certain Deities find it quite amusing that Kirby and Daroach both expected cake and treasure respectively, only to find Dark Nebula inside, rendering their efforts for naught in a sense. GLaDOS in particular finds it kinda funny that after all that chasing and running around, the cake really was a lie in Kirby's case even if he got his cake in the end.
  • By the way, there might be more members of the Dark Matter Horde like Dark Mind and Dark Crafter, but no one is certain if they really are a part of the Horde or it's just a coincidence.
  • Can also be found in Villainous Roles.

    Jak and Daxter 
Jak and Daxter, Divine Duo of Comedic to Dramatic Tone Shift (Unlikely Heroes)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jak_psasbr.png
  • Jak and Daxter met up with Ratchet, Clank, Sly Cooper and Bentley over some galactic games and got along pretty well with one another.
  • Whenever the Evil Queen attempts to murder Snow White out of jealousy, Jak is very likely to be nearby to foil her plot. In fact, his Light Eco and royal blood allows him to see through her various disguises.
  • Jak and Daxter formed a sports team with Nathan Drake and Crash Bandicoot, called the Naughty Dogs. Daxter wanted the Naughty Ottsels, after his bar in Haven City, but he was outvoted.
  • One should never try to use the Dark Eco within Jak to control him, especially if Daxter is nearly. Master Xehanort would learn this lesson the hard way.
    • The two have gotten the attention of Absol, given how Jak can have some control over the Dark Eco inside him, with hardly any innocent people dying by accident when caught up in his darkness-induced rage. Jak wonders if the Disaster Pokémon can one day learn to control the aura triggered by her Mega Evolution and not end up killing fainthearted people. He admits learning to control the Dark Eco wasn't easy, and he's not reached the point where Xehanort cannot corrupt him, but hopes she'll be able to control her aura without Riku's help.
  • The two are on good terms with Melody, mainly because of how her voice reminds them of their friend (and Jak's Love Interest) Keira Hagai. Melody, in return, has even said that Daxter sounds like her friend Tip, and he even acts like him at times.
  • They both really don't like the idea of people being kidnapped to be used as test subjects for Super Soldier programs, citing that although Jak survived and was able to gain control of the Dark Eco injected into him, others have either died or became insane. They don't even like the idea of the DNA of unborn children being tampered with for the same reason, given what had happened to Sephiroth.
  • Occasionally, Daxter will help the White Hats with their hacks by eating data in a Pac-Man style mini-game. This is one of the few times he's seen without Jak.
  • Jak isn't pleased with what Nephrite did to Sailor Mercury when he learned about this from Riku. He has sworn that the next time this happens, Nephrite would have to deal with his Dark Eco Bomb in adition to Riku's Dark Aura, Terra's Ultima Cannon, and Mega Absol's Night Slash.
  • Jak has a large ongoing feud with Prince Hans over both of them being royalty who can never ascend, but while Jak has accepted his status, Hans has not, and tried to marry Ashelin Praxis with the intention of becoming the ruler of Haven City; the resulting clash between the two princes lead to Hans' Heartless, Sköll, becoming the biggest threat to Jak's world since the Dark Makers.
  • Because he spent his childhood in the past, Jak is only five years old chronically, but is otherwise 19 physically and mentally. This has gotten Rydia's attention.
    • Daxter, on the other hand, is 519 years old thanks to travelling to the future.
  • Both are happy that Samos and Keira finally entered in the Pantheon.

  • Symbol: The League Militaire symbol, and the Wings of Light of his Victory 2 Gundam
  • Theme Song: Stand Up to the Victory note 
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Creator Breakdown, War Is Hell, Child Soldier, Break the Cutie, Nice Guy, Trauma Conga Line, Ace Pilot, Falling into the Cockpit, Humongous Mecha, Deceased Parents Are the Best, Attempted Rape, Iron Woobie
  • Domains: Tragedy, Comedy, Death, Mechs
  • Allies: Amuro Ray, Kamille Bidan, Domon Kashu, Banagher Links, Heero Yuy, Loran Cehack, Kira Yamato, Bright Noa, Shinji Ikari, Jacuzzi Splot, Eru Chitanda
  • Enemies: All Evil Gundam deities except for Char.
  • Complicated Relationships: Char Aznable, Yoshiyuke Tomino
  • A seemingly ordinary boy living an agrarian life on the outskirts of what was once Prague turned the tide of battle against the Zanscare Empire. That boy was only 13 years old, and his name was Uso Ewin, the last Gundam pilot of the blood-soaked Universal Century. Fighting in longest war of the Era as well as one of the cruelest, by the time he went back to his little farm in the former Czech Republic he had lost almost everyone for the sake of peace.
  • Oh, and he fought some giant robot mantises, some robot lice, and one robot that can be best described as a Fruit by the Foot dragon. He's defeated some of these enemies by literally throwing his own arms and legs at them.
  • When you survive one of the shows that gave a man the nickname Kill 'Em All, you know you’ve been through some shit. And said man literally went insane while working on Usso's show, which is why he and his creator have a troubled relationship within the pantheon.
  • Of the Universal Century Gundam pilots in the pantheon he’s one of the weaker newtypes. To compensate, he’s also one of the most talented pilots of them all in terms of pure skill, creativity, and killing ability, helped by the fact that he may or may not be directly related to a certain Zeon pilot who likes red thingsnote . Not only that, his V2 Gundam is the last and most advanced Gundam-type mobile suit of the Universal Century timeline.
  • Some of the wacky hijinks he gets into is amazing. He's fallen into the cockpit via hang glider, and he managed to save the day once by creating a reflection on a giant bubble. Speaking of the fights he has, his shield has the power to shoot a giant glowing letter V that stuns enemies because reasons, and his enemies have laser helicoptor blades on their arms and ride around in giant laser tires.
  • He’s also killed a lot of people. A lot of people. Some of those people killed themselves once they realized the pilot they were fighting was a child. And he’s seen even more people he’s known and loved get killed around him over the course of the Zanscare war. Including other children! Hell, he may have accidentally had a hand in one of his friend's deaths! Oh, and then there's that little thing that happened to Prague...
  • Usso has had... very interesting past interactions with women, to say the least. His penpal/crush betrayed his rebel group to join the Evil Empire where she upgraded from a class A bitch to a rare diamond SSS class Axe-Crazy bitch. At the beginning of his show he had a team of six female badass Ace Pilots, and by the end of the show he had seven badass Ace Pilot graves. Because their male team leader also died.note  Surprisingly he still managed to leave the war with a living, non-insane girlfriend and an adopted orphan son named Karlmann. Again, Usso is 13, but it's not like there were many adults left alive by then.
  • He frequently visits the therapists in the pantheon, where he recounts in sullen silence that time he watched his mother get beheaded by a giant space battleship shaped like a motorcycle, or how he was attacked by a bunch of girls with jet packs and bikinis aiming bazookas at him while he fried one of them with his laser sword. And of course there was that time when a female enemy pilot handcuffed him naked inside of a bathtub to try to 'test his skills'
  • He's also very good friends with Shinji Ikari, since he's one of the only people around who's had a life quite as spectacularly fucked as his. He's also friends with Jacuzzi Splot, who shares his affable shyness and sense of duty, while the both of them are friends with Eru Chitanda. She never fails to barrage Usso with questions about his Gundam, his war record, his farm, his haircut, and why he and Jacuzzi sound just like her boyfriend.
  • In spite of his insane past experiences, he remains the same kindhearted boy he always was and is still very humble despite his macabre war record. He's often found in the House of Food delivering some of the crops he's grown from his little farm in Kasarelia.
  • Within the GUAG Robot War Division he specializes as a front-line shock trooper, using the Wings of Light from his V2's twin Minovsky drive to mow down enemies like a threshing machine. His Buster Assault armor allows him to punch a hole through enemy defensive barrages while counterattacking with carrier-class mega-particle launchers. Damaged parts on his Gundam can easily be switched out autonomously mid-battle using the modular three-part core block 'Victory' system, as long as a support ship is close by.

The Antagonist, God of Excessively Bleak Settings ("Not Important", Nadim Portant, Northem Portent, Nodhim Poortint, The Crusader, The Hero, Jeffrey Cuddletrousers, Nathan Explosion, Edgy McEdgerson)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/455819859_preview_hatred3.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Black Longcoat
  • Theme Song: Particular Hatred by Iperyt
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Genocidal Misanthrope, Main Focus of the Game, Completely Maniacal, Wishes to Die Violently, Video Game Cruelty Potential Invoked, Cruelty Is the Only Option, Sociopathic Nature, Badass Longcoat, Barbarian Longhair, Often spewing out One-Liners, Escalating the Scale of Damage towards New York City, Killing Victims Gruesomely, Hates Everyone Equally, Lack of Empathy, Shruging off Several Attacks, Succeeding with his Goal of Causing a Nuclear Explosion in New York, Excessively Bleak Setting, Unintended Cheesiness, Being Heavily Controversial
  • Domains: Hate, Misanthropy, Anger, Genocide, Bleakness
  • Allies: As far as he is concerned, none. However, he'll be willing to work with the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, if mainly because they have the same endgoal.
  • Rivals: The Postal Dude, Leo Kasper
  • Enemies: Everyone is an enemy. The Antagonist takes no exceptions. However notable examples include the entire House of Justice, Clark Kent/Superman, Steve Rogers/Captain America, Bruce Wayne/Batman, Frank Castle/The Punisher, Kouta Kazuraba/Kamen Rider Gaim, Yusuke Godai/Kamen Rider Kuuga, Steven Universe, Madoka Kaname, Jax Teller, Franklin Clinton, Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips, Mr Burns, Daniel Lamb, Yahtzee
  • Begrudging Respect From: Zamasu
  • Source of Interest From: Lionel Starkweather
  • Opposes: House of Love
  • A man packed up his weaponry and went out into the streets of New York City. His goal; to completely destroy the city whilst also wishing to be killed violently because he hates humanity and everything about it. He eventually got his wish, setting up launch codes to trigger a nuclear explosion whilst being gunned down by military personnel. He died laughing as he mused the destruction of New York.
    • His death, however, managed to inspire a whole new cult, compromised of fellow misanthropes and nihilists. They took to worshipping him like a deity and hence began to carry out their own purge against banking, dedicated to torturing and killing any humans they come across to carry out what he had left off.
  • The Man ascended into the Pantheon shortly after the violent death he desperately wanted. His first thoughts on the Pantheon was a rather perplexing thought about the idea of a whole new world, though not without figures who happened to reside from New York as well. Hearing about the Pantheonic Forever War, he took to storming into a gun store at a late-night and retreat to an abandoned warehouse. Learning about the Pantheon through news broadcasts and word of mouth, he decided to initiate a second crusade. If he destroyed New York, why stop there? The Pantheon is next.
  • The Man doesn't have a known name and it's unlikely anyone will ever know what he's truly called. However, many took notice of his introductory line, where he claims that his name is "Not Important" as in he's saying his name doesn't matter to him and is unimportant in the grand scheme of things. Some, however took it literally and nowadays, whenever he's the topic of discussion, he's always referred to as "Not Important". He honestly doesn't care.
    • That said, he does not want to be called "Jeffrey Cuddletrousers" either, considering that Yahtzee slammed that name in a mocking and satirical approach on him. As a result, he's considered personally approaching and viciously gunning Yahtzee down. Oh, and his grim appearance is not to be talked about either in his presence.
    • There are apparently plans for a Death Metal album based primarily on his experiences of trying to destroy New York. This comes off as ironic, given that his theme song is actually a Black Metal track (Though it's common to find Death Metal songs about Nihilism and Misanthropy). He doesn't care about music one bit, let alone the fact that there may potentially be songs about him.
  • "Not Important" has no allies. He finds it pointless to consider the concept of camaraderie as if it just alien to him. There are other misanthropic beings like Shinobu Sensui and the Fatalis that "Not Important" may find interesting, but to him, association with them is barely tolerable.
    • That said, the Grand United Alliance of Destruction are interested in "Not Important's" hateful nature and his desire for absolute destruction. Seeing as there's really no other choice, "Not Important" begrudgingly allowed himself to be enlisted in the GUAD Scar Corps, if mainly to be given access to more weaponry and resources as possible. Beyond that, "Not Important" has no true loyalty and is not above betraying the GUAD should he feel like it.
  • Zamasu initially thought that "Not Important" was an exemplary example of how Humans Are Bastards, but then started having a soft spot of sorts towards him after learning of his misanthropic nature. The Fallen Kai gave credit for "Not Important" for actively resisting whatever attempts were made to stop him and delivering some sort of "justice" to lowly mortals. Still, he's a mortal, so Zamasu doesn't have a high opinion on "Not Important". However, it's credit where it's due, and Zamasu will consider him a noteworthy exception to the list of "filthy mortals". That said, inducting him into the Divine Order of Absolute Justice is next-to-impossible, given how "Not Important" is in the GUAD.
  • Before someone asks, no, he is not amused by how someone threw a teddy bear at him and it suddenly changed him into some attractive hunk via The Power of Love. It's for this reason that "Not Important" tends to look away from the House of Love as being reminded of it causes him to cringe violently. Unfortunately for him, a lot of deities like to make fun of "Not Important" for that, though they keep it to themselves, just in case "Not Important" starts another killing spree just because he heard a derogatory comment thrown at him.
  • Misanthropy is a very drastic contrast to love and idealism, so it's no surprise that "Not Important" comes into blows very frequently against those who live up to such beliefs. It doesn't help that they're terrified and disgusted by the destruction that he is willing to cause and seek to suppress and stop him at all costs. "Not Important" himself finds Kouta Kazuraba and Yusuke Godai incredibly aggravating, given what they represent, and Superman and Captain America being seen as all-inspirational icons of hope is another point of contention. "Not Important" seeks to find some kind of armoury and weaponry when it comes to dealing with those four.
  • The killing sprees caused by "Not Important" has caught the intrigue of Lionel Starkweather, who was morbidly delighted by his actions and seeks to feature him in a series of Snuff Films, believing this would cause the Snuff Film Industry to see a spike in popularity and influence. That said, he has no chance of directly approaching "Not Important" directly, and thus, has to use a series of proxies and drones to get close to his actions. All Lionel wishes is that "Not Important" catch him before Lionel's footage is complete.
  • It is revealed that "Not Important" was initially the High Priest to another unnamed figure who goes by "The Postal Dude" due to their sensationalized killing in video game format and for going out with an explosive bang. Unfortunately, "Not Important's!" nature means the two of them can never truly form an alliance, which meant that "The Postal Dude" has to see him as a competitive rival in who gets to kill more. That, and "The Postal Dude" is much more reserved and controlled than "Not Important" could ever be.
  • Given that he destroyed New York City by overloading a nuclear power plant, "Not Important" has set his sights on the numerous power plants that he could set his eyes upon for more carnage and destruction. This got Mr Burns, of all people, concerned as this potentially means Springfield is a place of interest for "Not Important". Not that he could care about the populace and its needs so much as he prioritizes his survival and his business. Mr Burns has taken to increasing his security in his power plant, solely because he fears what "Not Important" would try to do if he ever comes to Springfield.
Human scum; they've always felt so fucking safe inside their homes. Surrounded by the possessions gathered their whole lives. So weak, so fragile, they don't deserve a natural death unconsciously waiting to be obliterated by my Hatred! Those parasites think their walls can save them, but I will destroy everything they own and everything they are.

  • Once upon a time, in modern-day Japan, there was a boy named Kazuma Satou. When returning home, he saw what he thought was a girl about to be run over by a vehicle, tried to save her, and died. He then met the goddess Aqua, who told him that he could reincarnate in a new world with a "cheat item" and stop the Demon King from terrorizing the land. To her astonishment, he chose her as his cheat item, and so they were whisked away into the new world. Unfortunately, this journey would not be easy; his "cheat item" is incredibly arrogant and incompetent, the two party members he picked up were too overspecialized in certain skills, incredibly quirky, and the new world is just different enough for an Otaku like him to struggle. This leads to many hilarious antics as the party has many misadventures in the other world.
  • Kazuma and his party ascended after defeating Verdia of the Demon Army, an event that caught the attention of most of the Pantheon. A lot of gods enjoyed their exploits and demanded that they be brought in as entertainment, which led to their ascension.
  • Applies to the party:
    • One day, the party was out adventuring, when suddenly a beam of light shined upon them. Before they knew what was going on, they were lifted upwards to the sky kicking and screaming, not unlike the first time Kazuma and Aqua were transported to the alternate world. The next thing they knew, they were lying in a heap in the Court of the Gods, who has granted them their positions as deities in the Pantheon.
    • The party often visits the House of Profession to accept quests and fulfill them, just like what they did back in the mortal realm. Their exploits oftentimes cause some damage in the Pantheon, requiring the House of Craft and skilled builders to fix the damage, and the party has to pay the House of Commerce with their quest money to pay for the damages.
    • The crew absolutely dislike Popuko and Pipimi for many reasons. For one, their ambiguous and bad attitude, and of course, insulting nature. According to Megumin and Aqua, Popuko and Pipimi are seen as dangerous, random and unforgiving like the time when the two where inadvertently summoned to an unfinished fantasy anime and make the heroes do impressions, much to the voice actors' consternation. Popuko and Pipimi called every single one of Kazuma’s Crew (including him) a useless piece of garbage compared to themselves. There are some examples of why Kazuma’s Team think that Popuko and Pipimi are terrible:
      • Kazuma got upset when they snatched away the panties he stole with Steal and called him a pervert.
      • Aqua was highly insulted when they stole her booze and called her a big crybaby.
      • Megumin got angry at them for almost refusing to give back her Explosion when she agreed to let them borrow it.
      • Darkness broke into tears when they mercilessly teased her by saying her real name over and over.
      • After all the trouble they went through, The two have been banned from their temple. Aqua even tried to kill them with a torrent of water but since they came back from death shortly after, she broke down sobbing.
    • When the party met Morrigan and Lilith, they were reminded of the succubi from their world, who host services to lonely men. Their services involve giving men dreams while sapping off small amounts of energy from them, while in contrast, Morrigan and Lilith feed on dreams. Lilith and Morrigan don't host those kinds of services for money, but are more than happy feed on their dreams anytime.
    • The party are a bit uncomfortable around Celty, Lala, the Headless Horseman and the Horseless Headless Horsemann as they remind them of Verdia, a general of the Demon Army that they fought against multiple times in the other world. While Celty, Lala, and Headless Horseman don't really mind them, the Horseless Headless Horsemann sometimes antagonizes them for fun, and deligths himself in the party'ssquirming until Aqua blasts him with her Turn Undead spell.
    • The Puella Magi remind the party of Wiz, a friendly lich who retains her human form. Notably, they're one of the only undead beings Aqua has no beef with, because of those similarities.
      • Speaking about Wiz, they initially thought that she was in the Pantheon and ran to the House of Time and Space to meet her, only to encounter a powerful, time-manipulating angel names Whis. After clearing up the misunderstanding, they became unlikely allies.
    • They are sometimes seen hanging out with Papyrus and Sans, often solving puzzles together and going out for extravagant adventures. Papyrus in particular is extremely amused by the quartet's antics.
    • When they heard of Eris being in the Pantheon, they thought it was the goddess Eris from their world. Soon after, "Eris" did arrive... but she turned out to be a crueler, completely different Eris. After ditching her disguise, she laughed at their faces as they stood dumbfounded and shocked. The party now are plotting a way to get their revenge on her for such a cruel prank.
    • They became frequent victims of Makuta Teridax's trickery and schemes, but not because he plans of something greater for them, he just likes to see them make a fool of themselves. The party always gets upset over his schemes, but they always fall for the next one.
  • Exclusive to Kazuma:
    • Leading the celebrations for Kazuma were fellow Isekai protagonists Kirito and Sora, along with other Isekai protagonists like Naofumi, Subaru, Touya, Rimuru, and Shiroe. He was surprised to see Subaru and Emilia here, as they met each other before. Kazuma sometimes hangs out with Kirito's party because they're more tolerable than his own, but he had to promise Kirito not to use Steal on them. As for his relationship with the Black Swordsman himself, Kazuma thinks that Kirito is too "straight-laced" for his own tastes. He gets along better with Sora, Subaru and Naofumi because of their NEET status, poor luck, and pragmatism respectively, though he is annoyed that Subaru is seemingly luckier than him.
    • Shido Itsuka and Lux Arcadia disapprove of Kazuma's snarky, belligerent behavior, but they try to be nice and befriend him. On the other hand, Kazuma is annoyed that both of them have a better, more stable relationship with their harems. Even then, Kazuma still managed to find a kindred spirit in the form of Greg Heffley, who is every bit a snarky, rude Loser Protagonist as he is.
    • Given the accessability of modern technology in the Pantheon, Kazuma sometimes spends entire days inside his own home playing video games. He was able to relate to Konata Izumi, Tomoko Kuroki, and Umaru Doma for their otaku interests. He especially gets along with Tomoko for their NEET habits.
    • Kazuma also gets along with Issei Hyodo and Mahiro Yasaka as they share similar traits with him; Issei and Kazuma have perverted tendencies which they take out on their harem members, and Mahiro and Kazuma aren't afraid to get physical with their harem members whenever they get too rowdy/annoying. However, when introduced to their harem members, Kazuma could only groan in frustration as he saw their more loving, stable harems.
    Kazuma: I swear, it's like I'm the only one here with a crummy harem..."
    • One day, Kazuma used Steal and a pair of panties materialized in his hands, stolen from some unsuspecting goddess. Unfortunately for him, Dokuro Mitsukai was watching the scene, and angered at his perverted acts, swung her Excalibolg at him. After being revived at the House of Life and Death, Kazuma became deathly afraid of her for her violent acts. Dokuro has added him to her list of perverts to smack ever since.
    • Kazuma, like Yusuke Urameshi, died by trying to shove someone out of the way of a moving vehicle, and then finding out that their sacrifice was rather stupid and unnecessary post mortem. Although, Kazuma is a bit upset that Yusuke did actually try to save a life who did look like he was in danger and was run over, instead of passing out in front of a slow moving tractor in a sleep deprived state.
    • Kazuma went to the House of Thieves to show off his Steal ability. They're impressed with his ability can grab things from faraway distances and his pragmatism in applying his powers, though they think using it to snatch panties is a rather petty usage of a power.
    • Let it be known that Kazuma is a proud advocate of 'gender-equality', which means that unlike some straight-laced Gods that Wouldn't Hit a Girl, he wouldn't restrain himself in drop-kicking a female right in the face. Surprisingly, he's hailed by people who got sick of Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male because of that. It also helps that he's also very anti-cliche. Like, if Girl A fell in love with him and then Girl B also loves him, which caused Girl A to inflict violence on him, he would answer back with violence with no hesitation. HE'S A GOD WHO DOES WHAT HE HAS TO DO! YOU BETTER REMEMBER THAT WELL!!
  • Exclusive to Aqua:
    • Upon ascension, Aqua made a beeline to the House of FAITH to advertise herself and gain worshippers. While many didn't convert to her teachings, mainly because of her foolish behavior, the Axis cult do sometimes visit the House to worship her and spread her word, still not realizing her true identity. She became a rival to Kanako Yasaka and Suwako Moriya because they also rely on their followers worhip to get more powerful.
    • To the surprise of many, Aqua is incredibly skilled in the arts, as she is a divine muse. She likes to go to the House of Craft and show off her artistic talent. There, she met Nero, and bonded over their prideful attitudes, and compete on whose artworks are better, although unlike Aqua, Nero is... unskilled in the field of arts and crafts, so to speak.
    • Aqua absolutely hates any undead and demonic beings and wouldn't hesitate to kill them with her holy magic. The undead and demonic deities scoffed at this, but Ainz told them of the time Aqua caused him serious pain with a low level Turn Undead spell. Now, since they know that even a weak spell from her can harm such a powerful lich, they're thankful that she's too incompetent to make good use of her powers. Artix von Krieger is hoping to train her to be more competent and become his partner in demon and undead slaying.
    • Aqua was surprised to find out that there were two other "Aqua"'s in the Pantheon; One who's a keyblade wielder, the other a songstress better known as Azura. As a further coincidence, all three of them have blue hair and have connections to water. They were able to befriend eachother because of these similarities, though the keyblade wielder and Azura do get a bit exasperated at the goddess' antics.
    • Like a frog taking to water, Aqua and Cirno became fast friends, being egotistical, boastful, and unlucky blue-haired girls with powers relating to water and ice. They spend their time competing over who's better and greater. Kazuma groaned when he heard that Aqua managed to find a like minded spirit in the Pantheons.
    • She and Satania, on the other hand, have a mutual fierce enmity, as their first meeting turned awry when Aqua learned of her demonic nature, prompting her to cast Turn Undead on her. After getting sent to the House of Health and Diseases to recover from the debilitating pain, Satania has sworn to get her revenge on Aqua.
    • Mayuri and Honoka just can't stand Aqua because of her Jerkass, egotistical behavior, and wonder how Kazuma can put up with her. Whenever they try to confront her, Aqua just sobs and pulls a reluctant Kazuma over to deal with them.
    • Ever since her ascension, Aqua became one of Moe's most frequent customers. While Moe appreciates a regular customer, he does get annoyed when Aqua sometimes accidentally turns the alcohol into pure water.
    • Aqua has a hatchling pet named Emperor Zell, who she insists is a dragon, but looks and acts like a baby chick. Daenerys Tagaryen, Rynn and Caim could only shake their heads before showing off their more impressive dragons to her. Aqua now has sworn a rivalry between the three of them, but they don't really care about her.
    • Aqua has proclamed her rivalry to fellow water gods Poseidon and Chaac, and has sworn to prove herself to be the greatest water God of all. They're not really intimidated by her boastings, but they don't really mind her. However, even Aqua is disgusted by Zeus' philandering habits, especially as he does it behind Hera's back.
    • Given his reputation of slaying gods and killing the Twelve Olympians, Aqua is deeply afraid of Kratos. While he's not as bloodthirsty and vengeful as before, Aqua refuses to take chances and stays as far away from him as possible.
    • Some gods have noticed some similarities between her and Donald Duck, in that they're blue-clothed, hot-tempered, emotional healers. The party decided to meet up with Mickey, Donald, and Goofy to see what they're like, only for Aqua and Donald to start arguing and get on eachother's nerves. Their companions had to pull them away from eachother to stop their squabbling.
    • One day, the party encountered a fearsome dragon named Vaal Hazak. Aqua tried to blast it with Turn Undead, but to their horror, it wasn't affected at all, because it's not an undead dragon. She then tried to drown it in her water spells, but it was completely immune to it. It took a well time Explosion from Megumin to damage the beast, as the party was sent packing.
    • Gilgamesh once forced Aqua to hold a stone tablet saying "2nd Worst Goddess" as she reminds him of Ishtar, a goddess he holds much ire towards as she was responsible for many misfortunes in his life. As Aqua sobbed in humiliation, Kazuma can only dread what Ishtar is like.
    • Despite being a 'water goddess', the House of Water somehow pissed Aqua off. There she was introducing herself to the House as the Goddess of Water and the whole house looked in awe... and then snorted en masse. (because she's not taking the title anytime soon from Percy Jackson) When she complained that to Kazuma... he couldn't help but snort at her.
  • Exclusive to Megumin:
    • Megumin raced to the House of Weapons when she heard that there was a subhouse dedicated to explosions there. There, she met Michael Bay, who wanted to see her Explosion spell in action. Needless to say, Michael was over the moon when Megumin demonstrated her spell. Megumin accepted his offer to help him create explosions in his films, although he is disappointed that she loses all her energy after only one spell. She also became friends with Nice Holystone, the Soldier and Demoman, and they frequent the House of War to blow stuff up. Megumin was also floored by Yoshikage Kira's Stand, Killer Queen, Blacephalon's explosive head, and Karna's Brahmastra Kundala.
      • Megumin also managed to befriend fellow explosion enthusiasts Mona and the Plague Knight, and they were impressed by her Explosion spell. She also takes interest in Junkrat, Deidara, Katsuki Bakugou, and Solf J. Kimblee for their explosive prowess, but is annoyed that others are telling her about how dangerous they are, as she just wants to see their explosions in action.
    • Megumin became fast friends with Rintaro Okabe, Ranko Kanzaki, and Jurai Andou over their shared Chuunibyou attitudes. They often like to roleplay dramatic scenarios with each other and have a blast doing so.
    • Megumin has a cat familiar named Chomusuke, who is able to fly and breathe fire. She then met Sabrina Spellman, a half-witch girl with a pet cat names Salem Saberhagen, who can't fly or breath fire, but can talk and is actually a 500-year old warlock sealed in the body of a cat. Naturally, Megumin was enamored with him, and Sabrina was also interested in the flying, fire-breathing demonic cat, and they became friends.
    • After a series of explosions occurred at the House of Magic, Megumin ran to see who created them. The source turned out to be a jewel-eyed rabbit named Ruby. Ruby was surprised to see Megumin gush over her magical mishaps. After some initial confusion, the two became friends.
    • Megumin gets along with fellow mages Emilia and Atsuko Kagari. Akko is flummoxed that Megumin chooses to hone only one spell despite her talent, while Akko tries hard to study magic despite her handicaps.
    • Upon meeting Rias Gremory for the first time, Megumin initially thought she was a fellow Crimson Demon due to her title, magical prowess and otherworldly-sounding name. Rias was quick to clear out the misunderstanding, though; she was however impressed by the strength of her Explosion magic, and has proposed to help Megumin handle her magic better. However, Megumin can't help but feel a bit... dwarfed by Rias's assets.
    • Megumin's red eyes have special properties, namely that they can glow in the dark, and have a varying intensity depending on her feelings. She thinks that Sasuke Uchiha's Sharingan abilities are extremely cool and awesome, but Sasuke's just annoyed by her, as she's seemingly uncomprehending the consequences of such powers.
  • Exclusive to Darkness:
    • Unsurprisingly, Darkness became fast friends with Ryouna, as they share similar masochistic tendencies. Darkenss is glad that there is someone who likes the same things she likes. She also holds interest in Akeno Himejima's brand of sadism, and wants to experience it herself.
    • Darkness became interested in Akasha, the Queen of Pain, wanting to experience the kind of pain she can dish out on her. Lisa Williams and Allison Carter approached her when they heard about her masochism and requested that she should meet up with them instead of Akasha, as the latter harms others without regard for safety, while they take precautions to ensure a safe and pleasurable expreience. Darkness accepts their offer, but is still interested in Akasha as she doesn't really care about the whole "safety" thing.
    • While walking around in the House of Royalty, Darkness met Artoria Pendragon, and was surprised at their physical similarities. Artoria explained that she wasn't the only lookalike around, as Jeanne d'Arc, Nero Claudius, Mordred, Okita Souji, and Violet Evergarden could attest to. They became allies as they are sword-wielding blonde women who care and fight for others, even if Artoria is disturbed over Darkness' masochism.
    • One day, a powerful crusader named Johanna approached Darkness, and asked her to be her successor. She can see potential in the young paladin, and wishes to train her to be more skilled in sword-fighting and to fight for the faith, the people, and good, instead of satisfying her masochistic urges. Darkness appreciates her offer, but is content with where she is right now. Johanna still aims to train her one day.
    • Surprisingly, Darkness turns out to be the one being that could freak out Embryo. Let's just say that the moment Embryo tried to do his usual thing of entitlement and bad mistreatment to women, it instead dials Darkness kink Up to Eleven to the point that Embryo was positively creeped out and has been avoiding to put Darkness into his 'harem target' list solely because of that. This episode made Ange and her friends approach Darkness and invite her to support them in their battle against Embryo, only to get themselves freaked out by the crusader's fetish.
    • Darkness isn't her real name, just a cooler alias she uses to cover up her more embarrassing name, Lalatina Dustiness Ford. Because of this, Darkness heavily dislikes Isis for knowing everyone's true name, and avoids her to evade an embarrassing confrontation.

    Sigurd & Seliph Baldur Chalpy 
Sigurd and Seliph Baldur Chalpy, Gods of Theme Shattering and Reconstruction (Sigurd: Siglud, Zigludo, The Descendant of the Warrior of Light, The Paladin of Grannvale, The Prince of Chalpy, Holy Knight; Seliph: Scion of Light, Celice, Serlis, The Prince of Light, The Prince of Grannvale, The Savior of Light)

Sigurd
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seliphfe4.png
Seliph
  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: The crest of the Dukedom of Chalpy and the legendary weapon Tyrfing.
  • Theme Song:
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Weapon of Choice: Tyrfing
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Heroes, Knights, War, Light
  • Allies: Marth, Lyndis, Erinys, Caeda, Lucina, Robin, Chrom, Ayra, Tailtiu, Ramza Beoulve, Solid Snake, Aerith Gainsborough
  • Uneasy Relationship: Arvis
  • Enemies: Grima
  • The tale of Sigurd was... not a pretty one. He was merely following what standards Marth has set upon amongst the realm of Fire Emblem. Unfortunately, because of his overly noble attitude, Sigurd ended up failing to realize the greater maneuvers of politics, sadly costing his life, and even he before death started to worry that he might have failed Marth. Thankfully, his genes were passed onto his son Seliph, who worked his ass off to restore his father's legacy (along with Marth's), making Jugdral a better place. This tale was quite phenomenal that eventually the Pantheon raised both of them into this throne, just because the setting is already bleak, doesn't mean it's definitely time to wallow in angst, fight your ass off and you can make it a better place!
    • That said, on ascension, both of them agreed that even if it's phenomenal, maybe their tale was just too dark for others' standards, so they agreed that for now, their tale isn't publicized massively, perhaps the world is not ready for them... yet. The most they would get would be Seliph's visit to Ylisse where he got acquaintated with Lucina and Chrom.
  • Both of them detest Grima for being far too similar to their own arch-nemesis, Loptyr. If they aren't one and the same, that is.
  • Those who know their tales, especially Sigurd's, knew just how hard it is to see the tale's hero just up and up die in the middle. Even Aerith was shocked, seeing that before her incident with Sephiroth, Sigurd has experienced that kind of shit.
  • Even though he is credited as the hero of the war, Seliph knew that he wouldn't even make it if it wasn't for his half-sister Julia banishing Loptyr from the body of Emperor Julius. With that said, he's fine if Julia gets more spotlight than him.
  • Sigurd has some things to say about Seliph's new outfit when visiting Ylisse. It was nice.
    • He's also surprised that Seliph did not take after him, instead being a Swordmaster. On hearing that Seliph probably learned that from Shannan, the Isaachian boy he saved and protected in his generation, Sigurd was very proud that Shannan grew into such a fine swordsman. He also told Seliph to maybe pay a visit to Shannan's aunt Ayra, who resided in the Pantheon as well, which made Seliph recognize from where the strength of his allies Larcei and Ulster REALLY came from.
  • Ever since the beginning of his journey, Seliph has been wary around nuns in general, not because he fears them, but he regrets the one time he said "Nuns and warfare DO NOT MIX" and would rather avoid slipping into bad habits.
  • Seliph has noted that Lucina is a lot like him, as both are the children of famous heroes who met an untimely end, as well as leaders of a group of ragtag individuals who were the children of their fathers' army. Though he is glad that Lucina managed to save Chrom from befalling the same fate as Sigurd.
  • Upon meeting Suzaku Kururugi, Seliph mistook him for his cousin and friend, Leif Faris Claus, as both share some superficial similarities. Both are brown-haired and usually fight in white and gold armor (even if Suzaku's is a little bigger), the sons of the former leaders of occupied nations, and are exceptionally skilled in combat. However, Seliph soon discovered that Leif and Suzaku were more different than they appeared... Especially when he noticed that Leif has NEVER did a spin kick maneuver like Suzaku.
  • Both Sigurd and Seliph occasionally give unbreakable orders to flying units, sometimes for no reason. They usually order their Pegasus and Dragon Knights to fly wherever they need to be, but often tell them not to approach neutral castles that none of the ground units can approach. Those castles inevitably start attacking, although Sigurd did have a good reason to not attack one certain castle, as he had promised his friend Eldigan. Once Seliph gave an arbitrary order to stay away from that familiar looking Dragon Knight with that familiar looking lance who refused to fight against Seliph's army. Said Dragon Knight turned out to be Seliph's long lost cousin Altena.
  • When it comes to romance, Sigurd is known to be rather dramatic, with lines like "A fate which I cannot kiss you is a fate I will not recognize!" when it comes to his love Deirdre. Everyone thinks the line is cheesy as hell, though for Seliph, he thinks that yes, it's cheesy, but it's awesome
  • Surprisingly, Sigurd has been trying to keep a good relationship with his murderer Arvis. First, he understood that he'd do all the same thing Arvis did, minus the betrayals and such, that is, to create a reign of peace, and to his credits, Arvis DID create a peaceful reign even for just 15 years after his betrayal, so he recognized his noble goal. Second, he already lectured Seliph beyond the grave that Vengeance Feels Empty and Seliph shouldn't fight solely to avenge him, so he won't be so hypocritical. Seliph also took the lessons at heart and he also doesn't hold it as badly towards Arvis, and Arvis also admitted that maybe Seliph was right, he was just too weak to let fate sweep over him like that.
  • To Sigurd's surprise, he saw one of his friends Tailtiu ascend. After a bit introduction with Seliph, knowing that she is the mother of Seliph's friends Arthur and Tine, Sigurd had to tell him about her tragic end, even he considered it maybe the second or third most tragic fate (could be right behind the deaths of his friend and sister, Quan and Ethlyn). Seliph was speechless and expressed that words just couldn't describe how sad he felt. Of course, because this was a slightly-fixed Tailtiu, she just responded by stretching Seliph's cheek to show that he can now enjoy what she was like when she was in her prime.
    • While Sigurd and Seliph greeted the ascended Erinys well, Seliph was a little conflicted in about telling the truth about her husband Lewyn who served as his advisor, namely him being Dead All Along and the one who assisted him was just the Dragon deity Forseti using his body. The way Erinys said she 'understood' Lewyn's deal kind of confused Seliph even more.
  • Sigurd hates going to BBQ parties and stays as far away from Ragnaros as humanly possible.
    • When he eventually comes to pay a visit to Embla where Seliph has been going, the latter was shocked to see Sigurd decked with quite a bit of anti-magic charms that he labelled 'In case of BBQ parties'.

Demigods

    Cerebus the Aardvark 
Cerebus the Aardvark, God of Contrasting Between Light and Grim Tones
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cerebus.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His head
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Barbarian Hero, Anti-Hero, The Alcoholic, Conjoined Eyes, Four-Fingered Hands, Hermaphrodite, Jerkass, Perpetual Frowner, Pintsized Powerhouse, Would Hurt a Child
  • Domains: Chaos, War, Glory, Animal, Strength
  • Allies: Conan the Barbarian, Red Sonja, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Barney Stinson, Spawn, Yubel
  • Enemies: YHVH
  • Odd Friendship: Jak and Daxter
  • Admired by: Charlotte the Dessert Witch
  • Feared by: Arthur Read
  • Here is the curious cage of Cerebus the Aardvark. To this day, this barbarian had the longest-running comic run by a single artist. But he is most well known from the various different tones his story went through. Starting as a comedy, it went into more dramatic themes... only to dip back and forth. Throughout his 26 year run, he has been deconstructed and reconstructed with impunity. For his services, Conan saw to it to ascend his fellow follower for his varied tones.
  • Has a bit of history with fellow barbarian Sonja, given that he knew one of her followers. Red Sophia went under the same oath herself, with Cerebus claiming victory. While he was annoyed with her patron, he now has her to thank for marrying Sophia.
  • Has a notoriously bad temper. Piss him off bad enough and he can fight Conan to a standstill. Otherwise he can be seen drinking away in the House of Food or challenging folks in the House of Combat.
  • His comic in a way was inspired by the Ninja Turtles comic, though they went in completely different ways. While his comic became Darker and Edgier, the turtles show showed them in a Lighter and Softer light. The turtles later proved to be every bit as adaptable as the aardvark.
  • The other aardvark wants no association with his barbarian counterpart. Those who reside in the Pantheon concur, even when Cerebus converts to his more lighthearted incarnations.
  • Surprisingly has ties in both the Houses of Leadership and Faith as the Prime Minister and Pope respectively. Few people actually liked his terms, if only for the audacity to maintain his power.
  • Not everyone holds disdain for his actions. Barney Stinson enjoyed watching the aardvark go through increasingly outrageous antics.
  • Having fans from three of the main alliances, his only true enemy is with YHVH and the GUAL. The Absolute Lawmaker cannot stand his erratic behavior and seeks to correct it so that it would stick with one tone.
  • Is at least familiar with many superheroes in the Pantheon, seeing parodies of them in his world. The most notable is the Roach, though he has yet to find his equivalent the Tick in the Pantheon. He can only hope things stay that way.
  • He is not the only one who has suffered from such conditions. Jak had to endure 2 years of torture right after his more lighthearted first video game. He is surprisingly warm towards the barbarian and is a fan of his antics.
    • Others are people who single-handedly bring a change in tone to an entire series. Charlotte is the guardian of such people and was interested in the aardvark. Cerebus likes her style, but hasn't made the effort to meet her yet.
  • Is on good terms with Spawn, who had one of his comics written by the aardvark's writer.
  • It may not look like it, but Cerebus confirmed that he is in fact a Hermaphrodite. It's just that his uterus got destroyed as a child. Was surprised to find a deity for such people. Yubel was more than happy to be buddies with him. Cerebus doesn't mind, claiming to have seen far uglier faces.

  • The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another, his mother called him "Wild Thing", and Max said, "I'll eat you up!" So he was sent to bed without any supper. This is important because that night, in Max's room, a forest grew and grew and grew, and an ocean tumbled by with a private boat for Max. He sailed in this boat all the way to Where the Wild Things Are, where he tamed the island's titular monstrous denizens and was crowned King of All Wild Things. In some versions of the story, quite a bit more happened, but in the end, when he realized how lonely he was, he gave up his crown — to the Wild Things' dismay — and sailed back into his room, where his supper was waiting for him. To this day, no one knows if this was Max's imagination or if something magical happened.
  • Max was quite surprised when a road leading into the sky appeared in his room one night, and was curious where it led. As it turned out, it led into the pantheon of tropes, where the Court of the Gods named him and the Wild Things gods. When the obligatory celebration of the ascension of new gods was announced, Max had this to say:
    Max: Let the Wild Rumpus start!
  • There are ten Wild Things, but three of them are rarely seen. The most commonly-seen ones are as follows:
    • Carol, also called Moishe, the de facto leader of the Wild Things (when they don't have a king, that is)
    • KW, or Tzippy, the most mature among the Wild Things
    • Bernard, otherwise known simply as The Bull, the quiet one who is more gentle than he seems
    • Judith, AKA Aaron, the grouchy party pooper
    • Ira (alternate picture here), a kindly but none-too-bright Wild Thing who seems to like putting holes in trees
    • Alexander, also known as the Goat Boy, the attention-starved youngest of the Wild Things
    • Douglas, or Emile, who acts as Carol's sort-of right-hand Thing
      • The other three can be described as follows: one is pretty much a sea serpent, one has long hair and stripes similar to those of some species of cat, and one, named Bruno, has a prominent pinkish-red nose, small horns on his head (which looks close-shaven), and brown fur on his body.
  • Carol has been trying to rein in his bad temper. It's...a work in progress... If you lie to Carol and he finds out you've been lying, or you so much as imply anything that would separate the Wild Things, you may find yourself on the receiving end of his strength, or even inside his stomach. This was one of the reasons why all the Wild Things were ascended, not just Carol.
    • Obviously, those who would actively try to separate the Wild Things are most in danger of meeting the aforementioned fates. Trollkaiger has been trying to figure out a way to accomplish it without any casualties
    • And if you should try to seriously harm Max...God have mercy on you. One member of Trollkaiger (no one remembers which, but most say it was Terumi) attempted this, and ended up getting their arm dislocated by a furious Carol for their troubles.
      • In fact, anyone who would enjoy — and likely HAVE enjoyed, in the past — harming children are regarded with caution and either fear (by Max) or disgust (by the Wild Things).
  • Max and the Wild Things' temple greatly resembles a mixture of multiple versions of the island Where the Wild Things Are. It may, in fact, be the very same place. Either way, Max isn't always present in the temple; he has to live his life with his mother. He only appears in the pantheon whenever he's alone with his thoughts, which is usually when he's asleep.
  • Bigby is rather unnerved by the Wild Things; their appearances remind him too much of his brothers. Fortunately, they don't seem to have that Might Makes Right mentality that his brothers did; they're just giant children, mostly. Still, he's cautious of them; for reasons most people — including himself — don't understand, in the culture of Wild Things, it's considered good manners to allow someone to eat you.
  • Those who explore dreams and thoughts see Max's little adventure with the Wild Things as a big question mark; did it actually happen? The Wild Things are real in the Pantheon, for certain, but were they always real, or did someone or something in the Pantheon somehow make them real? This riddle hasn't been solved yet.
    • As for how the Wild Things are real in the Pantheon, there's a theory going around that they are figments of Max's imagination that somehow became self-aware and able to exist in the waking world. No one is sure how, but Haruto Tsukishiro has expressed interest in this theory, and has started visiting Max, telling him about his adventures through the dreamscape. Soon enough, they began discussing possible connections between the Wild Things, the Witches, and Eve.
  • Ash was impressed to learn that Max was able to befriend such seemingly-fearsome creatures as the Wild Things, though he wonders which of the rumors are true: Did Max tame them by staring them down, or did he lie to them by trying to convince them he had the power to solve their problem? No one has thought to ask yet, partly out of fear of offending the Wild Things.
  • One prank Judith likes to pull on other deities is to have them come closer, usually by claiming they've got something on their face, and then licking them with her long, slimy tongue. Of course, she knows that she'd have to avoid certain deities for that little stunt; some are obviously dangerous to touch, let alone to lick, for example.
  • Ira seems to enjoy punching holes in trees. This got him banned from the Plants subhouse, and in trouble with tree deities and those who care for trees.
  • Most of them are a little distrustful of dogs, worried that if they feed one, it'll just follow them around. With the assurance that only a few of them would do this (and that even the ones that do mean well), they've slowly-but-surely started to warm up to canines.
  • Despite knowing it's not good for him, Douglas has sometimes eaten rocks. This has earned him shaky relations with stone-based deities such as Steelix.
  • It would seem the Wild Things do have their own language, one that sounds strikingly like Yiddish. In fact, Carol demonstrated the language for those who asked. Those who knew actual Yiddish expressed shock and embarrassment; apparently, although Carol had only recited a few greetings translating to "good morning" and "how are you?", to those who spoke Yiddish, it sounded quite a bit more like something MUCH less friendly, even inappropriate.
    • Behind the scenes: Apparently, in the opera based on the book, Maurice Sendak wrote the Wild Things' dialogue so they were saying child-unfriendly — or at least cruel — things in Yiddish.
    • It would also seem that you can detach a body part from a Wild Thing and at worst, they'll be greatly annoyed. They also don't have blood in their bodies; instead, sand might pour out of the wound! The House of Health and Diseases has expressed curiosity of the Wild Things' anatomies. So far, though, it seems only heads can be re-attached, at least without the Pantheon's respawn system; Douglas had to get his arm replaced after Carol tore it off, and it was replaced with a branch. In a theatrical production based on the story, KW — or Tzippy — ended up getting her head lopped off by Max's (blunt) scepter (to Max's shock; he apparently had only meant to bump her on the noggin as punishment for accidentally stepping on him), and her headless body ran around in a panic. No other ill effects.
  • A friendly owl is always welcome to Max and the Wild Things' group of friends, especially by KW, who already had Bob and Terry the owls. Speaking of the latter two, Max and Carol were still having trouble understanding what they were saying. Fortunately, deities who Speak Fluent Animal — like Eliza Thornberry — are happy to translate.
