  • Pitied by: Scrappy Doo, Jar Jar Binks
  • Complicated Relationship: Megatron/Galvatron
  • Hot Rod, sometimes referred to Hot Rodimus, Rodimus Prime or simply Rodimus, ascended as part of an Autobot/Maximal strike force created by Ultra Magnus. At the time, Optimus Prime realized the resident Decepticons severely outnumbered the Autobots stationed in The Pantheon, and sent a distress signal to Cybertron, asking for reinforcements. The call was answered, and just before Megatron could deliver the final blow, Hot Rod leapt into action and knocked the tyrant to the ground. The battle was won soon after, and in reward for their valiant actions several of these new Transformers, Hot Rod included, were given positions and temples in The Pantheon.
    • Not many were happy with Hot Rod coming to the Pantheon, especially since he was originally created to replace Optimus Prime as leader... and was partially responsible for the latter’s death in the first place. To the surprise of those detractors, Optimus holds no Ill will towards him, and is actually proud of all his successor has accomplish. The only thing he asked of Hot Rod was to stay out of the way of situations involving Prime and Megatron. Some things it seems have never changed.
  • Serving as his Heralds are Kup, an old veteran of the Cybertronian war and the young Autobot’s mentor, and Drift, his second in command aboard the Lost Light. The three are sometimes seen together, with Kup and Drift giving Hot Rod crap for his reckless behaviour and Hot Rod in return brushing off his senior’s words. But when push comes to shove, they all care for each other, with Rodimus Prime often turning to his heralds for expert advice on how to be a leader.
  • Hot Rod gets along well with the other ascended Autobots, most notably with the mighty Grimlock. The Dinobot leader accompanied him and Kup during the final battle against Unicron in 2005, and as much as Grimlock denies it, he and his Dinobots are often the first to jump in whenever Hot Rod goes on a dangerous mission. That, and they also enjoy Kup’s war stories.
  • Was not happy to learn that Unicron was alive, and is currently out for revenge. But Hot Rod isn’t worried at all; so long as he has access to the Matrix, the Chaos-Bringer has much to fear. The same applies to Galactus, the Pantheon’s other resident planet eater. If either of them threatens to devour Cybertron then Hot Rod will unleash the full power of the Matrix.
  • Many in the Pantheon notice a shift in personality in the Young Autobot. As Hot Rod, he is more brash and headstrong, willing to go headlong into dire situations. However as Rodimus Prime, he becomes more hesitant, insecure about his abilities as leader and remorseful for being involved in Optimus’s death. He tends to bounce back and forth between these personas but it’s very evident when it happens.
  • In an alternate universe where the Autobots made contact with the Avatar world, Hot Rod ended up becoming close friends with Korra. Even without this knowledge though, the pair are still incredibly close, almost akin to siblings. Oftentimes, they’re seen either training together, sharing tales of their adventures, or simply just racing each other, trading friendly banter along the way. It was through Korra that Hot Rod befriended Asami, Mako and Bolin and became the honorary fifth member of the new Team Avatar.
    • Tenzin, Lin Beifong, and Greed are still a little hesitant towards him, with his hot-blooded nature bringing back memories of a younger Korra, but all three are thankful Republic City has one more guardian to keep it safe from threats like Amon, Zaheer, and King Bradley's High Command.
  • Like many of his fellow Transformers, Hot Rod will occasionally change his appearance to take advantage of particular situations. He can become a Powerlinx combiner, a speedy but fragile energy archer, a sleek Lamborghini Centenario, or he can just stick to his signature form to cover all ends. Whatever form he appears in he retains his energetic personality and willingness to overcome dire situations.
  • He'll also use the Matrix on the Makuta too if he has to, and has allied himself with the Toa to help them against the Master of Shadows. Of the Toa and Turaga, he sympathizes with Turaga Vakama due to having to deal with the struggles of leadership, and Takanuva for being a young newcomer to their respective teams.
  • Turns out Hot Rod is great around kids, owing it to his previous friendship with Daniel Witwicky. As such, he and his fellow Autobots will occasionally makes visits to the House of Childhood and Adolescence to perform and give the kids a good time, sometimes even racing fellow speedsters Sonic the Hedgehog and Barry Allen.
  • Hot Rod spends a good deal of time socializing with Shinji Ikari, trying to help the Eva pilot overcome his introverted nature. He's also called out both Gendo and Misato after having seen what the boy has gone through and hopes to make life better for him. Still hasn't met with the other Eva pilots but from what he has heard... Hot Rod is in for one bumpy ride.
  • Formed a Odd Friendship with Son Gohan after noticing several noteworthy similarities between each other. For one, both characters were notorious for being made to replace well established predecessors (Optimus and Goku respectively), only for things to remain the same and the predecessors returning to life. In fact, Hot Rod wasn't too happy to learn of the Pantheon calling Gohan an utterly wasted character that slowly faded into the background, and has since dedicated more time to hang out with the young Saiyan, even bringing Korra and Sixth Ranger Tommy Oliver along for sparring matches.
  • He’s good friends with Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and General Leia, as all three remind Hot Rod of himself, Springer and Arcee respectively. Ofttimes, he's been seen interacting with the three, testing out and comparing new rebel technology and meeting the new soldiers for the Alliance. The recruits are often taken back by the giant robot standing before them, which always leave a smile on Hot Rod's face but he's always happy to help out, especially with threats like Darth Sidious and Grand Admiral Thrawn on the loose. That said, Leia does give Hot Rod crap for destroying an entire planet to prevent the Decepticons taking it over and then callously stating Cybertron is better. It's fair enough; if you met someone who lost her entire world before her eyes, then you'd be a bit more cautious.
  • Hot Rod, Jar Jar Binks, and Scrappy Doo have been seen conversing together from time to time. It may seem odd at first, but all three share a similarity; they all were introduced to change up the Status Quo only to end up being reviled by their fanbases. For that, they share a form of camaraderie between each other.
  • Hot Rod's relationship with Megatron, and by extension Galvatron, is incredibly complicated. More often than not, they're bitter enemies and are always at each other's throats. However, the one exception to the rule occurs when Megatron, very rarely becomes an Autobot. When this happens, Hot Rod shows a great deal of respect for the old tyrant and will traverse through the cosmos aboard the Lost Light. This only happens on occasion though, and the rest of the time the two are just trying to kill each other.
  • One time, Hot Rod had his mind transferred into a synthetic human body by Old Snake in 2006 note . As a result, he and other Autobots are incredibly cautious when fighting the Cobra Commander in the Pantheon and his followers. This also extends to other mad scientists such as Dr. Wily and Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik.

  • Symbol: A computer colored in pink and blue (Base), The Upgrade and Dubious Disc items (2 and Z respectively)

    • Applies to all three: Conversion, Conversion 2 (regular moves), Z-Conversion (shared Z-move)
    • Applies to individual members: Recycle, Psyshock (Base), Lock-On, Zap Cannon (2), Agility, Hyper Beam (Z)
  • Portfolio: Artificial Pokémon, No Biological Sex, Multi Form Balance, Normal-Type, Learns Recover, Needs Trading To Evolve, Virtual Ghost, Living Program
  • Domains: Cyberspace, Blame, Controversy, Digital Beings
  • Interests: The Houses of Science and Technology (the lot), the House of Time and Space (2 and Z), The SCP Foundation
  • Allies
  • Odd Friendship with: Numemon and Sukamon
  • On speaking terms with: Most Digimon, barring the absolute worst, The Tamagotchi (the lot), The Goat, Grand Dad (Z)
  • Enemies
  • Opposes: Pikachu (base stage only)
  • Opposed by: Homer Simpson (2)
  • Porygon was created "20 years ago" (some time before Red's adventures) at the Pokémon Lab on Cinnabar Island using the latest state-of-the-art technology of its time. While more ancient Artificial Pokémon have since been discovered, Porygon is the first to have ever been created through computer programming. It's evolution Porygon2 was the result of it being upgraded from the most cutting-edge technology available at the time of its inception. Compared to Porygon just following directives, Porygon2 is artificially intelligent and capable of learning new behaviors on its own, including information it does not need to know. It can also speak a strange language only other Porygon2 can understand.
  • When it comes to blame, due to many different reasons, mainly from the impulsiveness of the media industry and the fanbase, the one logically responsible doesn't always take the (deserved) fall. Sometimes, someone else is remembered as "responsible", even long after the truth is discovered. Enter the story of the episode "Electric Soldier Porygon". Or as many know it, the "seizure episode". Due to a flashing strobe effect present at several points of the episode, more than 600 children in Japan had to be transferred to hospitals by ambulance because of seizure-like symptoms they reported. As a direct result of this, the show entered a four-month hiatus, and measures were made to ensure that this tragedy never happens again. Due to its debut there, and because the mascot Pikachu cannot take blame (despite technically being the one who caused it in-universe), Porygon has been marked responsible and not only has it never made a major appearance in the animé since then, its evolutions also suffered the same "lack-of-major-role" stigma.
  • The Porygon line are one of the more introverted Pokémon, due to a mix of their position as The Scapegoat, and partially their unique status as a Living Program. They tend to hang out with Rotom as it is a Virtual Ghost like themselves, and Blue since in one universe he has the line on his team. The OG Porygon gets along with Cofagrigus since it pities the Pokemon's Scunthorpe Problem, comparing its difficulties with trading one not nicknamed to the whole drama that led Porygon to not show up in the anime again. Given the seizure incident its line is foes with anyone who causes seizures, like Jeice and Burter for the Seizure Procedure. Its evolution Porygon2 is Sitcom Arch-Nemesis with Homer Simpson; it reminds him of the drinking bird that screwed up doing his job for him. 2 points out he's to blame for being a lazy idiot, which has only further annoyed Homer.
  • It is not known when the Porygon line first made it to the Pantheon, but an associate of Ash Ketchum wondered why he and his friends (plus the Team Rocket trio) we're given a lifetime ban from cyberspace and researched the answer. They found Porygon lurking in cyberspace, and offered them a spot in the Pantheon. Despite learning what trope they were going to ascend for, the line accepted it;, there was a little… glitch during the ascension ceremony, however. The line's ascension was welcomed by the crew of the Nebuchadnezzer, who treated it as a valuable being in protecting virtual reality and not a pariah. Neo personally offered the original Porygon a spot as his partner to protect the Matrix and dispel its bad reputation. The digital Pokémon jumped at the opportunity.
  • This glitch was due to the third stage evolution of Porygon; Porygon-Z. Through an unauthorized mod of the Dubious Disc, a Pokemon intended to travel through alien dimensions shows erratic, glitchy behavior and twitchy movements that make it difficult to work with for research. Z is the one Pokemon who is closer to the Glitch Entity Missingno than any other, due to their nature as "errors in programming". Their friendship struck panic and anger in Lord Vyce, who is convinced that Z could potentially become like the Entity and has sworn to destroy it for that. Dr Insano held a more nefarious interest in the Porygon line, and impersonated the base form's creator in the anime Dr Akihabara; the two both have the same fashion in eyewear. Linkara thwarted this attempt and helped the digital line escape Lord Vyce, and the line remains grateful for the comic book reviewer's help.
    • The buggy Porygon-Z has come to be fond of Monkia due to her ability to glitch and hijack the game, and knowledge on coding; she can protect it from those who'd wish the Living Program harm, and the Virtual Pokemon has a lot of power to offer her. It doesn't seem to fully understand the point of a dating sim, however, given how its line is programmed.
  • Due to a glitch in their ascension (perhaps instigated by the GUAE Trollkaiger), base Porygon has a pathological opposition to Pikachu by default, being the actual culprit of the seizures it has taken blame for and which its line has suffered to this very day. However, the evolved Porygons don't really harbor the same animosity, given they've discovered that the real culprit would be the animators who designed the afflicting scenes. Animation director Takayuki Shimura, who animated their debut episode, not only never worked on the main series ever again, he no longer works in animation at all. By extension, any and all deities capable of inducing seizures are enemies by default. That said, they're able to differentiate "base" Pikachu from Detective Pikachu and base Porygon harbors no animosity towards him.
  • Despite Porygon's resentment of Ash's Pikachu, it'll team up up with him to thwart the villainous goals of Conal Cochran; he's intrigued by the seizure incident as he intentionally used flashing strobe lights in a children's TV show.
  • Due to being made partly for that purpose, Porygon line have an inclination for going into space, particularly 2 and Z. With the option more readily available in the Pantheon, this can become a reality, even though they might not be able to move well in zero-G. As such, they've drawn interest from outer space travelers and the House of Time and Space. While 2 and Z might've failed to measure up in terms of traveling through outer space/alien dimensions, there are those who can help them achieve that and want to update their software to make them capable of achieving those goals. They've become interested in Team Lightyear and want to work with them in order to better explore space.
  • Porygon's status as a former follower of Polygon Man had him seek out the Virtual Pokémon and play on its resentment towards Pikachu for his ambitions. It rebuffed his offer and knows his ambitions for it are selfish; plus it doesn't want to get anymore negative attention. Father on the evolutionary line, Porygon-Z's status as an unauthorized mod designed to explore alien dimensions has led the SCP Foundation to research Z's development; they want their own variants on the line to explore technological and extra-dimensional anomalous activity. It would prefer to hang out with Vinny instead, who knows his way around glitches. The modded Z is also interested in other glitchy/buggy figures like the Goat, and Grand Dad for his status as a bootleg game-after all, Porygon-Z could be considered a bootleg evolution of Porygon2.
  • Porygon can use Conversion to change its appearance to mimic another Pokémon's (merely not demonstrated well in-game) and has also demonstrated the ability to change color for camouflage. Presumably, its evolutions can do the same. Allegedly, their line has copy protection built into its code, preventing duplication through electronic means. That doesn't stop breeding with Ditto, though, so either it's not that effective, or Ditto is just that good at mimicking others. Porygon2 noted that Kevin Levin's ability to absorb and replicate material was close to its own abilities, and his experience with aliens spoke to 2's desire to be a space farer. So the two teamed up, with the digitized 'mon making sure to protect the computer and other digital devices in his car.
  • The Porygon line could be compared to the Tamagotchi given their virtual nature. Ciel personally compares them to Cyber Elves, and has been treating the line with kindness. With Cyber Elf technology they've gained a fair amount of power, but they soon gained the emnity of Dr Weil. There are plenty of reasons to hate him, and Weil hates them as he believes all A.I should be slaves to humanity instead of having a will of their own. As with basically every Pokemon ever the Porygon line hate Pokemon Hunter J and Ghetsis Harmonia. The former considers them particularly rare and worth a lot on the black market, and the latter wants to use them to force PC boxes to release other trainer's Pokemon or hack ownership over to him.
  • Being helpful entities that hunt for suspicious data, they've been approached by the GUAG White Hats to help protect cyberspace. Given all the dangerous cyber entities in the Pantheon that desire to bring ruin to it or control it with an iron fist, they accepted the offer. Due to their virtual nature, after joining the White Hats, the Porygon line has harbored interest from the Digimon deities, since they're technically "digital monsters" as well. Amusingly, Porygon's animé debut predates the adventures of the 1999 Chosen Children by 16 months. The line tends to get along more with Digimon than other Pokemon, due to their similar nature. The Porygon line are one of the few out there to be chummy with Numemon and Sukamon, as they sympathize with them not being all that liked and seen as failures.
  • The clear comparisons with Digimon has put the line on full alert with the threat of the D-Reaper, along with Diaboromon and Millenniummon. By default any malignant Computer Virus or those who weaponize it is considered the Porygon line's enemy. Some are particularly dangerous; Agent Smith wants to assimilate them in cyberspace to become extensions of himself. Sigma wants to turn them Maverick with the Maverick Virus, which might allow the virus to mutate and transfer over to organic beings in Pokemon Porygon would come in contact with. Then there's SKYNET, who wants to weaponize Porygon into cyber-terminators against humanity's computers and networks.

Ninian
  • Lesser Deities
  • Symbol: The Blazing Blade Durandal with an Ice Dragon stone in front of it (not stabbed) and the crest of Pherae behind it
  • Theme Song: One Heart (Eliwood), Reminiscence (Ninian), Precious Things (shared)
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (Eliwood), Neutral Good (Ninian)
  • Portfolio:
  • Domain: Characterization, Combat, Support
  • Allies: Roy (their son [definitely in Eliwood's case]), Hector, Lilina, Lyndis, The Tactician, Sain, Marth, Caeda, Tiki, Corrin, Ephraim & Eirika, Ike, Azura, Shinji Ikari, Alexstrazsa, Paarthurnax
  • Uneasy Ally: Guts, The Dragonborn
  • Enemies: Gharnef, Grima, Alduin
  • As the last of the Lycian trio, despite being the father of the more famous Roy and the main protagonist of his debut series, Eliwood struggles in showing his worth because for some reason, how dare he be reluctant instead of being more inclined for battle unlike Hector and Lyndis. Then people discovered that badassery doesn't come in just kicking ass, but also to stand strong in conviction without giving in to despair, such as the time he calls out the Queen of Bern for the mistreatment for her son or calmly condemning Nergal that he just had pity on him before commencing the final battle. That was officially decreed by the Pantheon that he would be the one to manage and protect those who was falsely accused as a non-badass. But...
    • In the same time, they discovered that his 'official' girlfriend, the half-dragon Ninian, wasn't doing too well either in this department: She's only support, a non-combatant, a Damsel in Distress and the time she turned into a dragon, she got cut down by Eliwood in accident. Then people saw her breathing enemies to death around the realm called Askr and 'took back those wimp accusations'. Since it was very true to the spirit of the trope, the Pantheon elevated her to stand by Eliwood's side, much to both's joy.
  • Obviously, there was A LOT of rejoicing with the union of the 'Lycian League' with Hector and Lyndis greeting them both, and their children (Roy and Lilina) also present. Though it kind of confused Roy if that means he's quarter dragon now, but Eliwood assures that it doesn't matter: He saw him saying things like 'One day, we'll be in a day where humans and dragons can co-exist together', which is the greatest pride he can have, and for that matter, so is Ninian.
  • That said, Eliwood was also baffled that him calling out the Queen of Bern apparently wasn't enough to improve the lot of Zephiel's life to the point he caused the war that Roy had to clean up and costed Hector's life. He thought that maybe he should have directed that calling out to the King instead...
  • One day, Ninian decided to perhaps do one thing that is impossible: Calm and purify Grima down like she did with the Fire Dragon. Unsurprisingly it fails and she narrowly escaped being breathed down to oblivion, but props for trying.
  • At first they were a bit too creeped out by Guts and his Dragonslayer, since the name and the shape of the sword kind of brought bad memories about Eliwood cutting down Ninian by accident, until he explained that it's In Name Only, it slays demons better, he hasn't really fought dragons. Though they draw an easier breath, they're now just slightly unnerved at Guts due to his brutality, and in the same time pities at how his life turns out. (He rejects that pity notion, however)
  • For someone who went through a lot of shit like losing his father and accidentally killing her mate before resurrection, Eliwood surprisingly gains some respect for never giving in to hate, but just having pity, against even the worst megalomaniac. He did that to the Dark Druid Nergal, he'd do it again to any other evil bastards out there, including Gharnef. Boy, was the Dark Pontifex pissed at Eliwood...
  • Eliwood and Ninian's actions against the Fire Dragon caught the attention of Alexstrasza. Those dragons happened to be some of her lost children, and they apologized to her for having to struck the dragons down (Ninian was particularly over-apologetic). But, Alexstrazsa tells them to not too think about it too hard, she understands the situation.
  • On the other hand, Alduin is furious at them since an union between two differing species, especially when one of them is a superior species, a dragon, disgust him and he has been thinking of words that could separate them or make them serve him, but constantly coming up short (just coming up with mentioning their 'less badass' personality). Eliwood and Ninian found themselves in yet another uneasy alliance with the Dragonborn, as he could help them fight Alduin, but his accomplishment is more literal than Guts' sword name.
    • Not to mention with rumors that because Roy possibly being quarter dragon makes him a target to Alduin also spurred Eliwood and Ninian to protect the young lion too.
    • They have a more positive relationship with Paarthurnax, however. He appreciates their company and they respect his change in attitude to betray Alduin despite it being in his species' blood to dominate and destroy. Paarthurnax promises to aid them when met with future encounters from his brother.

  • Symbol:
    • When Normal: The Hardy Boyz necklace over the stylizied initials MH in red.
    • When "BROKEN/WOKEN" it's his drone, Vanguard-1/NEO-1 superimposed with a speech bubble stating "DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!" or the word WOKEN on a shattered black screen.
  • Alignment:
  • Portfolio:
  • Domains: Wrestling, Death (Ashamed and Defied), Atonement, Jealousy, Insanity, Resurrection (Career).
  • Allies: Jeff Hardy/Brother Nero (his brother), John Cena, Shawn Michaels (The Kid Who Breaks Hearts), Daniel Bryan, The Undertaker, Rey Mysterio, Paul London and Brian Kendrick, AJ Styles

  • Enemies: Vince MEEKMAHAN (his former boss), Brother Nero Mikami
  • Avid listener of: Ludwig van Beethoveen
  • Herald: Reby Sky/Queen Rebecca (his wife) and Vanguard-1/NEO-1 (his loyal drone)
  • Once upon a time, Matt and Jeff Hardy were a prominent tag team known as The Hardy Boyz, sometimes nicknamed Team Xtreme. They fought with each other, fought against each other and things were all right in the world. Until one day, when Matt Hardy became BROKEN, both in mind and appearance, blessed by a group of beings that he calls "The Seven Deities". This culminated into a match simply known as "The Final Deletion" that had the brothers fight for the Hardy name and contained hologram-projecting drones, Roman candles, a lake of reincarnation, a dilapidated boat, Matt's Mexican gardener and Matt running over his brother's lawn work with a lawn mower and then defeating his Obsolete Mule of a brother by lighting a huge cross on fire. No one could tell what to make of it, and various gods thought that It Will Never Catch On. Oh, how wrong they were...
    • Over time, Matt somehow became ever so popular with his gimmick. Not only was it creative, but it was also due to Matt being able to become his broken character no matter what the situation. Soon enough, "DELETE!" chants could be heard everywhere, matches were being fought in the Hardy Compound, Jeff Hardy decided to go along with the broken madness, Matt won tag team gold everywhere he went and gods who once derided him became part of his "Broken Bandwagon". For this, gods decided that he could go to the House of Popularity for succeeding where many gods thought he would fail. He just laughed madly in response.
  • When normal, he likes to eat green grapes for some odd reason and likes to eat these as he's a frequent visitor in the House of Food. When BROKEN, he loves green beans.
  • As the leader of the Broken Bandwagon, Matt's goal is to lead a platoon of BROKEN/WOKEN Warriors in the battle against the darkness. He proclaims himself as of the light, and to those who are "DELETED", that means that they have lost everything from within their soul that makes them special, deleting them from all of space and time.
  • When he originally ascended, he was really not happy to find Gangrel of all people in the Pantheon. After getting unsuccessful answers from both Edge and Jeff as to their history, Matt also had to decline actually being part of a stable with him ( it turns out that, just like with E & C before, there's really no history). Gangrel just laughs at how hilarious this all is. It also didn't help that Christian finally made it to the Pantheon who then preceded to scream in sheer terror at the realization.
    • In all honesty, Matt has no bad blood with Gangrel's wife, Luna Vachon (although this is because she wed Gangrel after Matt and Jeff's New Brood days) and the feeling is mutual. As long as the talks between the former Brood members don't regard their past, they're fine for midnight tea parties in the House of Otherness.
  • After years of bad blood with one another, he and Edge have buried the hatchet. This doesn't stop Edge from using the spear on him when they step into the ring, but at least they aren't threatening to kill each other.
  • Whenever he and Jeff team up, the Hardy Boyz can usually be seen having epic tag team matches against any and all challengers. Paul London and Brian Kendrick are considered a Worthy Opponent for the two (despite the fact that neither wrestler can contemplate Matt's mentality now. Paul's not one to make judgments due to his White Rabbit worshiping)
  • Has made good friends with Yu Narukami. Matt's is teaching him some wrestling moves, while Yu is looking to see if he can help Matt...trim down, so to speak. Yu has been wary after what Matt did to his own brother (and promised to beat Matt within an inch of his life if he should go after Nanako), but Matt allying with Jeff after Jeff's Taking the Bullet during the "Delete or Decay" incident against a trio of demons has calmed things down...for the most part. Yu still doesn't want Nanako to go anywhere near him (and after what Matt did to her close friends, Nanako has threatened to cut his head off with her new wind-and-fire wheels).
  • Alongside his Brother Nero, he runs a stable known as "House Hardy" consisting of him, his wife Queen Rebecca, his sons King Maxel and Lord Wolfgang, his caretaker and gardener Senor Benjamin, his trusty drone Vanguard-1, and Skaasgard, the golden, sentient dilapidated boat. No one really knows what to say to this. But to those who wish to challenge Matt in his home, be careful. He has no qualms on shooting people with Roman Candle assault rifles, his Mexican gardener is armed with a taser, he will bury his opponents in the Land of Obsolete Men and there's always his Lake of Reincarnation that he can use to subdue an enemy before they even had a chance to know what hit them. Oh, and there was that event Tag Team Apocalypto where he had a volcano in his backyard which would take half of the House of Popularity with it if Matt and Jeff didn't retain their Tag Team Championships. Oh and it could somehow predict the gender of Matt's second child.
    • As to the extent of his powers, the "Seven Deities" have blessed him with the power to grant him very powerful "premo-NEE-tions", his Lake of Reincarnation will dunk any wrestler to a previous form for a short amount of time (Something that Kane absolutely looks at in fear), he has access to his various past lives and somehow rebooted his beloved Vanguard-1 using his brother's life essence. (Yes, seriously.) He's also capable of transferring his powers to another person who will be afflicted with the same inflection like BROKEN Matt has.
  • Likes to row his dilapidated boat, Skaasgard across the lakes and rivers of the House of Nature. May or may not be sentinent. And after a trip to Egypt where he obtained the abilities of his first vessel, Annunaki, it is now known as "The Golden Ark" that feeds on the tag team championships that BROKEN Matt and Brother Nero obtain during their expedition of gold.
  • Goes to the House of Beasts in order to commune with the animals—or rather the souls of famous people that are (apparently) reincarnated as animals. Fluttershy has had to ban him from her temple after she saw him try to box with a kangaroo that had the soul of Smokin' Joe Frazer in it.
  • Made a triumphant return to the WWE Universe at WrestleMania 33 with Brother Nero to become Tag Team Champions. He's now looking forward to deleting Roman Reigns all while laughing maniacally and stating how "DELIGHTFUL!" it is to be back in the WWE. While normal at that point, after a feud with Cesaro, his brother out on shoulder injury and being harassed by Bray Wyatt, Matt could only scream "DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!" and became something known as...WOKEN!!!. This culminated in a feud with Bray in what was to be known as "The Ultimate Deletion" which involved similar wackiness to "The Final Deletion" but included a game of hide-and-seek in the Land of Obsolete Men, a trip to the Dilapidated City (where Bray had a breakdown as it reminded him too well of when Randy Orton burned down Sister Abigail's remains) and the Dome of Deletion (in which WOKEN Matt tried to run Bray down with a "mower of lawns"), before it ended with Matt submerging his opponent in the Lake of Reincarnation.
    • When Bray returned following this event, he did so aiding Matt, as the two became a tag-team known as the "Deleters of Worlds". Gods could only imagine just what was in store, especially after Matt ultimately revealed that their history long predates their current existences. Zenith, the possessing essence behind Matt's WOKEN state, had been a comrade of the Archangel Samael for eons prior to Sister Abigail corrupting a certain incarnation of Samael. The Lake of Reincarnation, rather than reverting Bray's vessel to a pre-Samael state, freed the incarnation of Samael from the influence of Abigail, allowing them to restore their lost allegiance.
  • Gods learned the hard way to never have him with either Teru Mikami or the Cybermen in the same room after the trio started screaming "DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!" at one another.
  • Loves listening to the classics, and had Beethoveen's Moonlight Sonata 3rd Movement as his entrance theme when he started the gimmick. Sometimes, Matt's wife, Queen Rebecca, will play this piece when her husband enters the ring.
  • To explain how absolutely crazy Matt is when BROKEN, his brother is the Cloudcuckoolander's Minder (in other words the sane one) when it comes to interacting with one another. Many gods are otherwise shocked that the Hardy who dyes his hair, risks his body for insane stunts and even makes a mummy out of aluminum foil is somehow the Only Sane Man out of the Hardys nowadays.
  • Due to multiple injuries, Matt has had to temporarily retire from in-ring wrestling. However, he's used this time to prepare his temple for more and more craziness, like the House Hardy Halloween party he held.
    • It is there that he revealed that the nucleus of his power was Excalibur, making him one of the gods who can wield him without being annoyed. Gods are fearing the chaos BROKEN Matt can unleash with Excalibur in hand.
  • Since he falls under the trope of works being derided before they became popular, he has ties with numerous gods who were seen with revulsion for their time from Tintin to the Muppets and My Little Pony gods, various Marvel superheroes whose films caused many doubters to eat crow after believing that they wouldn't sell (The Guardians of the Galaxy being the biggest example) and many many more works. And the more connections he gains, the more power he will use to spread and create his WOKEN Army. Other gods have learned to be very wary of him now, considering his charisma and his sheer will to project this BROKEN persona in and out of the ring.
  • Matt has resurfaced in All Elite Wrestling, his white stripe now dyed red. He states that he is now possessed by a being known as Damascus and everyone is wondering what type of chaos that's going to bring. His loyal drone has also been upgraded to NEO-1 too.
    • When asked what happened with Bray, Matt — possessed by Zenith — surmised that while dumping Bray into the Lake of Reincarnation purified Samael of Sister Abigail, it also might've unleashed the powers that are The Fiend. What doesn't help is that every wrestler The Fiend has fought has been warped beyond repair (Fergal Devitt fully embraced his Bullet Club ruthlessness and claimed he has no heart, Seth Rollins fell into madness and created the Architects of Pain cult, Daniel Bryan returned to his beareded underdog persona, and the one who was called "The Miz" became his egotistical hot-shot self). Either way, a lot of wrestlers are glaring at Matt for what he caused. Although Goldberg was able to neutralize The Fiend simply by refusing to indulge his tricks and charging him head-on, not everyone is a 53-year-old powerhouse whose ideal fighting style is the answer to The Fiend. And things have gotten even worse ever since Wyatt challenged John Cena to their "Firefly Funhouse Match" and no one has seen Cena since...
  • "Pantheon, you leave me no choice. I sentence you to...deletion!"
    • "Carnage...is COMING!"

  • The fanbase can be an incredibly fickle thing. It doesn't matter what your alignment is, someone will find a way to somehow rationalize you to be the opposite, be you good or bad, and successfully convince others of this ideal.
    • During the early days of the Pantheon, due to being the Trope Namers, two of the most prominent classmates in Harry Potter's life, Ron Weasley and Draco Malfoy, ascended to the Pantheon some time after Harry himself was secured a place there, and represented the two ways fans can warp their perception of a character's alignment.
  • As for who he is, Ron was Harry Potter's very first friend in the Wizarding World. having met during their first trip on the Hogwarts Express. It was further solidified when Draco Malfoy badmouthed Ron, electing Harry to turn him down and stick with his first friend. Despite their ups and downs due to Ron's insecurities, he's stuck with Harry when he needed it the most; a "foul-weather friend"note , if you will.
  • Ron did not know what to expect when he first ascended, but he did not expect to be met with such… vehement polarization. Thankfully, Harry was present to defend him and further acclimate him to the Pantheon as a whole.
  • Given that the movies are the most common image of Ron, not many know his original book feat(ure)s, like how he actually has more insightful moments (plus some that got attributed to Hermione), he's more shrewd and competent than most think, and that in the book it was Hermione who panicked at the Devil's Snare while it was he who got her to focus on remembering its weakness.
  • His Arachnophobia stems from young Fred and George transfiguring Ron's teddy bear into a giant spider. While her fears extend to more than just arachnids, he gets along with Misty in regards to their phobias.
  • Is actually good at mimicking voices, including Wormtail's, and even Parseltongue to open the Chamber of Secrets (though it also seems to help that the chamber entrance was detecting phonemes rather than language).
  • Established a "Disliked Heroes Anonymous" club for… well, heroes disliked by their audiences.
  • While he was just as dependent on Hermione on homework as Harry was, he still has a great tactical mind, and is well-versed in wizard folklore and culture even she doesn't know.
  • Speaking of Hermione, there are those who wonder just how they actually started getting together.
    • It began at first year during their adventures with Harry, starting at the battle against the Troll at the Girl's Bathroom when the two boys had to save her.
    • His affection for her were made manifest at second year, with jealousy towards Gilderoy Lockhart, him defending her against Draco for his insult, and his greater distress than Harry's upon discovering her petrified.
    • In third year, there was some tension due to her Crookshanks going after Scabbers (before he was eventually revealed to he Peter Pettigrew) but they made up thanks to Hagrid. He even had the cojones to stand up to Snape when he called Hermione an "insufferable know-it-all".
    • In fourth year, romantic feelings for one another began to grow and become more obvious, and harbored jealousies on each others' crushes at the time (Fleur Delacour and Viktor Krum).
    • His inability to realize and act on his feelings would frustrate Hermione all the way to fifth year, though she does kiss him before his first Quidditch game as Keeper.
    • Sixth year would be a trying time when he was the only one in the trio to be passed over by Professor Slughorn. His learning of Hermione snogging Krum back in fourth year, and her "lack of faith" in his ability after Harry pretended to spike his drink with Felix Felicis, worsened things. This resulted in a brief fling with Lavender Brown that thankfully did not last long, though he and Hermione made up after he was accidentally poisoned with mead on his birthday. He also comforted her as she wept during Dumbledore's funeral.
    • As for seventh year, they danced together at Bill Weasley and Fleur's wedding, he comforted her several times during the Horcrux hunt, he offered to vouch for Hermione as his cousin when they were told of the Ministry's crackdown on Muggleborns, and he tried in vain to get Bellatrix to torture him instead of Hermione when they were captured. And during the Battle of Hogwarts, his concern for the house-elves (of whom she had been fighting for their rights since fourth year) eventually culminated in her giving him the Big Damn Kiss.
  • Many prayers in his temple are death threats due to his relationship with Hermione, and the misguided females at Draco's temple built an annex in his temple to diss Ron. Many of these threats eventually stopped coming however, namely due to the wrath of Harry and Hermione, especially the latter.
  • The only thing he and Draco can agree on is their hatred of Ebony. And it's worse now that she's here, and their neighbor to boot (though more Draco than Ron due to the Slytherin sharing Halls with her).
  • On occasion, he invites Harry or other people (or they approach him) to play Wizard's Chess, which is essentially "vanilla" chess in terms of rules, with the only difference being that the pieces have to be ordered rather than moved by hand. In return, he sometimes gets invited to play regular chess, as well as the "fast" variants that wizard's chess can never achieve due to the pieces not being able to keep up (unless specifically designed, which Ron's pieces aren't).
    • Sometimes he even winds up using his wizard's chess pieces against "muggle" chess pieces during games either by accident or at their opponent's insistence, resulting in his pieces getting bonked by the foe (and instructed to leave the board), or them slicing marble/wood/ivory pieces if he doesn't tell his own beforehand to just knock them over.
  • Was joyed to see his twin brothers ascend, especially Fred, who had died during the Second Wizarding War. At times, whenever the hate to his temple becomes a bit much for him, he does part-time work at their joke shop, having taken Fred's place as co-manager in the mortal realm.
  • Encountered another Harry Potter one day who was being a bit too chummy with Draco (and having seen him before at the joke shop, plus having heard of him through Harry and Hermione). This Harry had nothing to say to Ron however given they never became friends in his timeline, and given how pretentious this Harry can get, Ron could see why. Rational Harry also has trouble comprehending what Hermione sees in Ron to eventually marry him.
  • Given they're both insecure redheads who often don't have the best of luck, and must learn to outgrow their fears and feelings of worthlessness to become better, Juni Cortez hit it off really well with Ron, and sympathizes with how "disliked" he is.
  • Having been regarded as the most incompetent in his trio, he can relate to Akko Kagari in regards to being seen as inferior, even though most of that was just in a relative level (between the highly academic Hermione and and the famous Harry) and much of it being in his own mind. He and the rest of Hogwarts also harbor interest in Luna Nova Academy and its representatives.

  • 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 Pantheon/Plot Archetypes.

  • Opposes: Ganondorf, Maleficent.
  • Tingle's ascension was really hard for the Court of the Gods, simply due of how polarizing Tingle is. There were many times when they almost wanted to deny him the chance to ascend all together. Ultimately, they had to get Link's word on this. Link's comment was, where he might have charged him too much to decipher maps and attempted to steal Force Gems out in the open, he is pretty much harmless and might get unneeded hatred, so they decided that Tingle is good to ascend properly.
  • The House of Hatred (outside of Eren Yeager) absolutely despise him. Even though they feed on the hatred he gets, Tingle himself lacks much of any malice or hatred, making him a filth on their unholy image (even Eren is fuelled by hatred). This is why Kenshiro leaves Tingle alone on his visits.
  • Probably the only deity who can tolerate Excalibur for extended amount of time. Gods fret any time the two deities meet with eachother.
  • For how much flak he gets, he is still really skilful at drawing maps. If he is seen floating around with his balloons, most gods try to shoot him down (he always lands on his feet, so doing this out of spite is pointless unless he is hovering over water) to buy maps from him.
  • Had a solo adventure on his own, to surprise to many. Vinny even likes it, and invited Tingle to his island hotel, which caused him to get into baseball.

  • Barred From: Houses of Nature and Theatre and Spectacle
  • Respected By: Some Members of the Blood Knight Channel
  • Alan Yates initially appears to be an ordinary documentary filmmaker as well as an anti-war activist who had an exuberant personality and appeal and tragically lost his life alongside his crewmates whilst filming a documentary in the Amazon Rainforests in an attempt to capture footage of what he saw were "savages", the indigenous people of the rainforests. However, despite the supposedly positive image he had, this was further from the truth as lost footage reclaimed by anthropologist Harold Monroe showcased; Alan was, in reality, a narcissistic psychopath who not only berated his fellow filmmakers and indulged in rude and antisocial actions but actively attacked the indigenous Yanomamo Tribe, even capturing and raping a female member just to get sick kicks whilst filming footage of their anguish in attempt to slander the Yanomamo as "savages" for his documentary project, The Green Inferno. Alan and his crew's horrendous actions were to not last long, for all of them were captured and brutally killed by the vengeful members of the Yanomamo tribe. In the end, not only would Alan die not being able to complete his work, but be seen as the "true savage" by those who had seen the footage of what he had actually done.
  • Despite his death, Alan would find another chance at living, though his ascension in the Pantheon was one that hardly anyone would have any anticipation for. To his dismay, his footage not only became an extremely controversial subject for filmmakers but also wound up exposing the sick, demented man that he really is. Alan was not happy to learn that his reputation was completely shattered and, to make it even worse for him, was completely barred from ever having a hand in making documentaries and films. Despite nobody really wanting him in a new world, the Pantheon had a strange way of presenting itself to Alan in a hellish way, namely stripping him away from his main profession. He may not be happy, and he personally doesn't care enough about his crewmates to bother bringing them in as his heralds, but if he's going to be cutthroat about his professional ventures, then so be it.
  • In case it wasn't obvious enough, Alan is one of the most unlikeable figures in the Pantheon. While one can make the argument there are those who are just as vile and depraved as he is, Alan is more unsettling in that he is a representation of what the worst of humanity is capable of, and the Pantheon's fantastical setting only makes this more apparent. Due to his actions and his job being stripped, Alan is barred entry in the House of Theatre and Spectacle, and while archives of his "anti-war activism" and documentary works are still available to the public, they've now been rendered either slandered by the public and critics for being obscenely hypocritical and falsified glorifications on himself. Because much of his fame and success revolved around those works, Alan is furious and upset to see that he can't get any benefit from them. It's part of the reason why he's become driven to find employment from someplace in the Pantheon, as he thinks its massive scope can at least provide something interesting for him.
  • The field of filming and professional documentation isn't the only place where Alan is reviled. He's been prohibited from ever attending the House of Nature due to his remorseless and senseless acts of violence towards the indigenous, who happen to be very prominent mortal residents of the House. Given that it's an extension of Alan's real personality being exposed to the public, it's an understatement that his range of exploration has since been limited. He's made attempts in trying to be careful about entering places of high natural nature as well as preserving his identity as hidden, but he suffers from the issue of short-sightedness and becomes quite impulsive in wanting to join along in his attempts to make documents Ironically, for a self-centered psychopath, this only made Alan more considerate of the idea for a business partner.
  • Regardless of how they're classified, either as cavemen or barbarians, Alan sees them as how he wants to see them as; savages. It doesn't matter whether it's someone like Ayla, Loana, or even Conan himself, Alan is simply offended by the fact that they're too different from his background and how they want to lead their lives. Ayla hates Alan for simply being a disgusting human being whereas Conan, the one "savage" that Alan does fear, sees him as a waste of time and wouldn't hesitate to kill him if he ever comes close to his territory. Loana, being mentally primitive and primordial, has the least interest in Alan though he's simply prohibited due to her clan being protective and territorial of their surroundings, especially concerning visitors. And regardless of how he sees them, Alan doesn't take kindly whenever he's told that he's the "savage", as he feels that he's being compared to those "savages" on Alan's perspective. On an unrelated note, his less-than-stellar thoughts towards the indigenous remind a few of Park Da-Song, who has an interest in them, though the two haven't met, if mainly because his family, as unpopular as they in the Pantheon, have made an effort to put as much distance between Alan and Da-Song as possible in the hopes that the youngest may not have his innocent perspective and interest on the indigenous be warped to a murderous degree.
  • Of all the filmmakers in the Pantheon, none detest Alan as much as David Attenborough does. Both have a similar profession and have documented on nature and scenery, but their means and ethics of handling their subject of interest were diametrically different, as was their general reception. Where Attenborough respected nature, would entertain the idea of capturing footage of indigenous people and have enough respect for them to leave them alone and carry out their own lives, Alan would invade and raze whatever indigenous populace he could find, all for the sake of sensationalism and greed. To Attenborough, Alan was an example of everything a documentary filmmaker should not be regarding work ethics and respecting one's subject of interest. Alan personally finds it upsetting that Attenborough doesn't like his works, feeling that he put a lot of effort into it, though it's pretty blatant that it's just a form of self-pity and insincerity on his part.
  • To his luck, he was able to find a place where someone would be willing to give him work and even the chance to participate in making documentaries, that being the House of Crime and Transgressions. Alan was initially hesitant in going there, thinking that their profession clashed heavily against his, but after receiving permanent bans from the other two aforementioned Houses, Alan decided to give this one a chance. He found a man going by Lionel Starkweather, who was best known for his production of Snuff Films. Out of curiosity, Alan looked into Starkweather's works and personally found them quite entertaining, to the point where he struck a deal to act as a filmmaker for Starkweather's gorefest filmography so long as Alan was given good pay. Alongside the money, it's a way for Alan to gratify himself from seeing people getting gruesomely killed, and the fact that Starkweather didn't mind this was a lucky route for him.
    • Speaking of crime, Alan caught interest in the Dark Web, an underground network of hidden internet browsers that usually held information and content that wasn't meant to be shown to the public. Being someone who was decades behind from the internet's rise, Alan decided to learn about the internet and the Dark Web. Normally, those who dug deep into it would be shocked and traumatized by the obscene amounts of violence, rape, debauchery, and torture committed there, Alan instead found joy, intrigue, and motivation in said content. He found that with the encouragement of anonymity and the freedom to promote whatever he wanted, Alan found a platform from which he can contribute and earn profit. It didn't take long for him to join the Dark Web as a nature/gore-focused "documentary maker" and while his audience isn't as big as it was in his mortal life, it paid a lot, something that was enough for Alan to continue working there. That said, with a new platform comes new threats and enemies for Alan, and he's going to need help if it means maintaining his work from here on out.
  • While journalism isn't really something that Alan is committed to, it does share some ties to the documentary genre and it wasn't a surprise that Alan found severe defamation and scorn from journalists. There was one exception in Louis Bloom, whose own drive for journalism is furthered by his sociopathy, meaning that he was willing to break the law and allow deaths to occur if it meant he was able to get good footage, evidence, and sound/video quality. The two gained an appreciation for one another regarding their unfettered nature and their willingness to create chaos as a means to create "authentic" footage with Louis promising to aid Alan in finances and funding if he can manage. That said, it could be a manipulation ploy on Louis's part, or it could even be a plan by Alan to sabotage Louis's career, but nothing drastic has happened thus far. The two remain on good terms, if mainly from a business standpoint.
  • Being one of the most unpopular people in the Pantheon also allowed for Alan to be a figure of interest by a quartet known as the Four Libertines, who were infamous for their extreme and unspeakable debauchery and malice, which they inflicted towards a crowd of innocent teens for 120 days. Where one would find utter revilement and disdain for the quartet, Alan instead found intrigue, even a sense of inspiration upon learning of their tale, especially considering how they were able to pull off such a vile act and even come out as the winner in their tale. This was vindicated when the Libertines admitted that they found Alan's work to be quite enjoyable. They've allowed Alan to be a guest in their presence and even allow for their own actions and work to be documented. While Alan is aware that his audience is small in the Pantheon compared to what it was in his mortal life, he believes that his partnership with the Libertines can somehow work.
  • To this day, the fact that he was also an anti-war activist baffles many, considering one of his most heinous acts was to attack the Yanamomo tribe for simply being different compared to normal civilization and kickstart a conflict that resulted in Alan and his crew's death. Some think that despite his content, Alan would probably fit well in the House of Military and Warfare, though he hasn't really said much on the matter. He did, however, find a few fans in some of the members of the Blood Knight Channel in the Hounds of War who think that the content and actions he presents can provide for interesting content that can gain some viewers and traction. However, while Alan has potential in regards to capturing footage on violence and gore, he has no chance in the Hounds of War. After all, Alan proved himself to be a Dirty Coward when it came to fighting back, and the organization's founder and leader, Khorne detests cowards.
  • If there's one thing that can remotely be called respectable regarding Alan, it's that he was at least determined and dedicated to his work. Too bad he even negates that with his complete lack of moral work ethics or respect towards life, seeing as he was willing to abandon any crewmates and stage attacks for the sake of getting good shots that he can use for getting profit and to get his rockers out on. Taking big risks for one's own film is something any filmmaker takes seriously, as stated by Carl Denham, judging by his experiences in Skull Island. Whilst he also used amoral actions for his filming, Carl felt nothing but disgust towards Alan, stating that he would never pull off the kind of stints he did. Alan was quick to call out on Denham for endangering others, only for Denham to reprimand him that he didn't want his crewmates to be killed off nor did he want to endanger any of the animals in Skull Island. Carl's condemning statement is also shared by Ann Darrow, who puts as much distance as she can from Alan, citing him as someone that she would never agree to work with, regardless of any reason.
