  • Ability: Levitate

  • On good terms with: The House of Emotion, with a few exceptions (Mesprit), courageous gods (Azelf)
  • Enemies: Cyrus, HUNTER J, YHVH (especially Azelf), Hikawa (especially Mesprit) Ghetsis Harmonia, The C'Tan
  • Interested in and/or interests: The Admins (Uxie), Iroque, and the other Lantern Corps (Mesprit)
  • Fears: The Chaos Gods and their forces
  • Pities: Medusa (Uxie)
  • At the beginning of the universe, the Original One created an egg. Out of it emerged three beings, known as the Lake Guardians or Lake Trio. Known as Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf, they embodied knowledge, emotion and willpower respectively and represented spirit. These Legendary Pokémon brought it into the universe, and have the power to counter-act one of the Creation Trio that guards dimensions. As such, they were a target of Cyrus, who captured them to create the Red Chain and bend Dialga and/or Palkia to his will.
  • Applies to all of them:
    • These triplet Pokémon represent spirit, and thus the soul. Because of this, they are well in tune with the more esoteric and soul-based side of the pantheon. They seem to be fond of J'onn J'onnz due to how he uses his psychic powers to help people, and Auriel for being a bastion of hope. They also work with Chronoa and Rosalina to help keep balance in space-time so Cyrus can never succeed.
    • There are a group of gods related to the soul that they seem completely horrified to, and for good reason-the Chaos Gods. Spawned from sentient thoughts and feelings, their complete insanity and what they've done to the galaxy is utterly terrifying to them. Arguably even worse for them are the C'Tan, who eat souls and wish to eternally harvest them in hopes of getting to devour the souls of every being in the Pokémon universe.
    • Naturally they loathe anyone who wants to stamp out the human soul. YHVH's rampant desire to destroy free will and smooth over people's souls for His worship has led Him to want to capture the Lake Trio so as to purge rebellious thoughts and feelings from the populace. Hikawa, like Cyrus, wishes to remove spirit as well. They are not happy about this. By contrast, the Lake Trio are perfectly happy to help people find spiritual refinement, such as Samurai Jack who underwent this to regain his sword. He can be found near their lakes meditating.
  • Applies to Uxie
    • The Wisdom Pokémon, Uxie is the Being of Knowledge who was said to have given humanity intelligence to improve their lives. In this regard, he is like Prometheus and Ganesha in giving wisdom to mankind. Naturally, they get along. He feels real bad for Prometheus for how he suffered centuries of torture for giving fire to man. and has chosen him as a partner as they both gave the gift of wisdom to man. Zamasu, like Prometheus and Ganesha, has a bone to pick with the Pokémon for giving man knowledge and enabling them to use it for evil in his deranged worldview.
    • Being the Pokémon of wisdom, Uxie is interested in the records the Admins have, fully admitting they have far more knowledge than even he does. He's shown a fondness to Matilda Wormwood for her smarts-based psychic powers as well. However Uxie doesn't like Vril Dox for trying to hijack him as part of his plan to hoard knowledge for himself, and especially the Brainspawn turning people stupid and destroying worlds because they can't stand the thoughts of others.
    • Doesn't open his eyes, as anyone who does will have their memory wiped. It's not like Uxie needs to see, given it can "see" using foreknowledge and telepathy. It would probably be a really bad idea for Uxie to look into a mirror, for that matter. He seems to pity Medusa somewhat, since she turns whoever looks at her or who she looks at to stone.
    • Reynard the Fox once attempted to outsmart Uxie, but ended up pushing his luck too far and Uxie punished him. Nobody knows exactly what Uxie, but Reynard really doesn't want to talk about it. Having heard that Reynard tricked Fox McCloud into surrendering one of his godly titles had already caused the Knowledge Pokémon to be wary around Reynard, but upon prying to his thoughts and finding out he was willing to humiliate Ash Ketchum made Uxie despise the fox even more.
  • Applies to Mesprit
    • The Emotion Pokémon, Mesprit is the Being of Emotion who taught humans the joy and sadness of living. She represents all emotions, both positive and negative and believes they are both necessary for human development. However, those who only wish to inflict negative emotions are considered abhorrent in her eyes. For this reason, she opposes the Dementors.
    • As the Legendary Pokémon of emotion, Mesprit feels the most comfortable in the House of Emotion. Her spirit can leave her body to fly on the surface of Lake Verity, allowing her to travel across the house so as to make sure emotions are in check. She found a kinship with the Emotions, and has become their partner in hopes of protecting the house. She is trying to help Raven with her empath powers as well.
    • Seems to be interested in the other Lantern Corps, as they are able to use different emotions to create constructs and wield one of the most powerful weapons in the universe. Especially the Indigo Corps, as they're able to make people compassionate and get the power of another lantern corps/emotion. She's not that comfortable with their Heel–Face Brainwashing aspect, though.
    • Those who touch Mesprit will have their emotions removed, according to the legend. It's unclear why this didn't remove Cyrus' emotions, though it's probably something Mesprit needs to intend to do. The Cybermen were deeply intrigued by this and are trying to kidnap Mesprit so as to further perfect their emotional inhibitors and remove feeling from the rest of the universe.
  • Applies to Azelf
    • The Willpower Pokémon, Azelf is the Being of Willpower who gave humanity the determination to do things. He respects the courageous gods in the pantheon, and especially the Green Lantern Corps as they represent willpower itself. One can only wonder what a Legendary Pokémon of willpower could accomplish with a Green Lantern ring. He decided to choose Link as his partner, given his Triforce of courage correlates to Azelf's willpower.
    • Anyone who hurts Azelf will have their willpower stricken from them, leaving them in an And I Must Scream state. Naturally Azelf doesn't like anyone who wishes to stamp out free will, particularly the aforementioned YHVH or Maltheal.

    Mina Tepes, Akira Kaburagi, and Yuki Saegusa 
Wilhelmina Vlad 'Mina' Tepes, Akira Kaburagi Rēgendorf, and Yuki Saegusa, the Divine Vampire-Werewolf Love Triangle
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dance_in_the_vampire_bund_chars_0.jpg
  • Intermediate Gods (Mina, Akira), Quasideity (Yuki)
  • Symbol: Mina's Vampire Bund, formerly Tokyo Land Reclamation #0
  • Theme Song: Friends or Tsumeato
  • Alignment: Lawful Good (with a Lawful Neutral facade) (Mina), Neutral Good (Akira, Yuki)
  • Portfolio: Vampire-Werewolf Love Triangle, Interspecies Romance, Interspecies Friendship (Mina and Yuki)
  • Domain(s): Romance, Friendship, Vampires, Werewolves, Humanity
  • Heralds: the Vampire Bund
  • High Priests: the film version of the Twilight trio
  • Allies: Most non-evil vampires (such as Rachel Alucard, Adrian Alucard, Marceline, Gasper Vladi, etc.), Genn Greymane, [[Pantheon/FantasticRaces Bigby Wolf, Valkenhayn R. Hellsing]], Jon Talbain, Remus Lupin
  • Enemies: indiscriminate (werewolf and) vampire hunters, evil vampires such as Dracula, Mira Fallegeros, Vanilla Ice, etc., The Crimson Court (and Carmilla for maybe inviting them here), Fenrir Greyback
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Hoss Delgado (on his good days)
  • Oppose: Rasputin
  • The quest to find a suitable Vampire-Werewolf Love Triangle candidate trinity was difficult, especially since the best known example is banished to Retconnian, and most other examples have since…violently resolved themselves. And with very few options, despite Yuki being not much of a love rival, her (unreqiuited) affections for Akira allowed the three to qualify and ascend to the Pantheon. That, and Mina vouched for her.
    • Another interesting tidbit regarding this romantic triangle is that it's not the human that is in the middle, but the werewolf.
  • Applies to the trio or two of them:
    • The first thing that was done after ascension but before the ascension ceremony was revive Yuki from her coma, which she had been in after suffering brain damage as a result of an attempt on her life. Both Akira and Mina were grateful for this act. That said, some people not familiar with them showed later concerns about their triangular relationship considering that in the Pantheon, Yuki is now as "immortal" as Mina, but the vampire queen has no problems with sharing.
    • During the ascension ceremony (with cries of relief from most in the Pantheon that they didn't need to ascend the Twilight trio, after all), the Bund was to be re-established in the Pantheon. But spacial limits forced Mina to limit it to just her mansion which got destroyed at some point in their story. As such, she could only bring up its residents (at least those still loyal to her) as heralds. With the Pantheon being comprised of all types of races and creatures, negotiating would be somewhat easier. It also helps that two temples have been provided for them, one in here and one in Couples Relationships.
      • Said negotiations eventually commenced at her mansion with the Pantheon's good-aligned werewolves and vampires and their allies on arranging terms with joining the GUAG. This meeting was shortly crashed by evil-aligned vampires and other undesirable that didn't wish to see this through and an all-out brawl ensued, with everybody keeping Yuki and the other defenseless ones safe. Thankfully for Mina, she didn't need to bust out her full-powered adult form. Once the dust has settled, after hearing of Cosmos' motives, Mina decided that her side would be most beneficial for her Bund, and Yuki and Akira agreed.
    • Some folks find it peculiar that some werewolves in their world are direct servants to vampires, given that in most other worlds, they're tense rivals at best and bitter enemies at worst. Of course, there are also a few where they are friends, but that's often in a Monster Mash kind of way, which includes Frankenstein's Monster, mummies, phantoms, etc.
    • If you still doubt there is a love trangle between them, you can look at it this way. Instead of Akira in the middle with Mina and Yuki, think of it as Mina loving both Akira and Yuki.
      • Why? Her relationship with her is only second to the one she has with Akira (and it just might be a separate-yet-equal thing). Mina has called Yuki her closest confidant after Akira, meaning that she trusts Yuki more than people she's known her entire life, and just slightly less than the man she loves. Mina has complimented Yuki's good looks on several occasions, and Yuki has been caught openly admiring Mina's adult form. She'd even risk an international incident just to spend time in the tub together with her in Yuki's apartment (though they all now share a "house" post-ascension). Yes, there was Skinship Grope involved. For her part, Yuki has a tendency to turn a lovely shade of red at all of these.
    • They distrust Rasputin, given that in their world, he's an alias of Lord Ivanovic, one of Mina's "suitors".
    • One ally they met during the negotiations was Rachel Alucard. Things were a bit tense at first due to Rachel abusing her familiars (though Gii deserves it for always prodding her Berserk Buttons and Nago seems to like taking pain) (though not Valkenhayn) and her snarky attitude, but having well-meaning intentions as well as everything she's done on behalf of the heroes in her world helped them see what she really is and a bond was forged.
  • Exclusive to Mina:
    • As an advocate for peace between vampires and humanity, Mina is naturally in the way of those who believe that vampires should keep asserting their superiority or are otherwise tyrannical towards humans and other "lesser races".
    • Mina's Bund has such unbelievable wealth that she can pay off Japan's entire national debt and still have more to spare.
      • The Lorenzo Corporation, a company in her Bund, developed "artificial blood" known as Stigma, which was how Mina has managed to sate the blood thirst of her kind, and lightblock gel to protect from sunlight. These commodities, of which she , don't come cheap, though, even if LC gas Instant Home Delivery services.
    • -something about (Remilia Scarlet)-
    • Due to her experiences with the Three Clans and their lords who serve as her official fiancés, Mina is adverse to Arranged Marriages. Given she's lost her mother to them (and who was possibly raped), she especially despises those like them. Oh, and calling her mother a whore is a very bad idea, as is harming Akira or Yuki, especially the latter (since the former can hold his own in a fight).
    • Having been a victim of an impostor plot before, she's made countermeasures against any repeats of that incident.
    • Has a small private cubbyhole that contains her true personal treasures; some old furniture, an antique gramaphone, a few other knicknacks, and many, many photos of Akira.
    • Her kind of vampires can't catch the same diseases humans do except for tooth decay. In fact, some of her kind even like drinking the blood of the diseased, because it alters the flavor.
  • Exclusive to Akira:
    • Thanks to his Beowulf Armor, Akira is no longer a Glass Cannon in the face of threats powerful enough to match his werewolf form.
    • Silver weaponry is the only thing that can really hurt him. Not even being impaled by a broken-off church steeple comes close, though that would apparently do more on Mina than him.
    • The easiest way to piss him off is to harm anybody he cares about. Even easier is to impersonate Mina.
    • Valkenhayn (servant to Rachel Alucard) has blessed Akira in his love for Mina and has even offered to train him some more if need be.
  • Exclusive to Yuki:
    • When she isn't tending to Akira or Mina's needs or attending at Elysium Academy with (or without) them, Yuki is often writing her novels and improving her writing skills, and thus sometimes visits the House of Narrative to polish up on that.
    • Her latest work is apparently a Boys' Love story, its protagonist based on Akira, and was apparently really good enough for Mina to personally translate it to Latin, have it published in the Bund, and even actively contribute to the writing process. Many heads were turned at this and she became a recognized potential writer as a result.
    • Is often (she does her damnedest to, at least) the one who make sure Mina and Akira talk to each other and not keep secrets that could be very dangerous when spilled at the wrong moment. This was because the impostor Mina exploited this tendency during her "reign" of the Bund, and doesn't want it to happen again.

  • Rivals: Each other, Gallantmon (Charizard only)
  • Enemies: Team Rocket, Giovanni, Missingno, Lysandre, Ghetsis Harmonia, Cyrus, Hunter J
  • Opposes:
  • These used to hold three different titles: Goddess of the Flora Beast, God of Fiery Reptiles, and God of Shoulder Cannons. However, the Court of the Gods decided to make room for more potential deities by shafting the three Starter Pokémon to…what they represent best as a trio: Starter Mon, given they (or, to be exact, their first-stage forms) are what any Player Character Pokémon trainer starts with on their journey. After all, you can't "catch 'em all" without one to start you off.
  • Applies to all or two of them:
    • Wizard and Boomstick once staged a Death Battle between the three to prove once and for all which of them is the strongest. Though in order to make it fair, they had to change up the Pokémon's movesets to remove all trainer influence (including all EVs and TM-only moves). Venusaur was the first to fall, and Blastoise came out victorious. Both losers are looking forward to a rematch, especially Charizard, who hasn't forgiven Blastoise for the defeat.
      • That said, Blastoise really doesn't like Boomstick's story of his conception and facepalmed at it.
  • Exclusive to Venusaur:
    • If people say that you can't mix plants with animals, show them Venusaur, one of the better known Planimals of the Pokémon world. While she doesn't have the most diverse moveset available, she makes up for it by her good Defense and Special Attack, Which get better when she Mega evolves and gains the Thick Fat ability, which halve damage from fire and ice attacks.
    • Nobody knows what animal Venusaur is based on. Is she a dinosaur? A toad? A lizard? Venusaur is pretty much a strange creature.
    • One of the few Pokémon deities to have a noticeable gender difference in her bulb on top of her flower.
    • Stays far away from many deities with ice or fire abilities, unless she in her Mega Form, which renders her more resistanct to those attacks.
    • Has the special ability to capture the rays of the sun and convert them into a pleasant aroma that can calm the emotions of others. For this reason, Venusaur will sometimes visit the House of Emotions to help calm any deities who are too emotional. Anger is the most frequented.
    • Has become very close to both Tsubomi Hanasaki and Yuuka Kazami for both loving flowers and finding her giant flower that grows on her back beautiful. She is however closer to Yuuka because both are very protective over their plants. You can see the two in Yuuka's garden either gardening or just resting under the warm sun.
    • Many deities have tried and get Venusaur and Chesnaught together so that they can make some baby Bulbasaurs. Unfortunately, and to the disappointment of many, neither of the Grass Starters are in the same egg group. But the two are still good friends.
    • Is very aggressive against anyone who dares to harm the environment. This is why she hates Looten Plunder and Hexxus, who are well known for destroying forests.
    • Due to having used Venusaur in one adventure, Chuggaaconroy is good friends with her, along with The Mob. During this time, she is called either "Bulbapedia" or is in a tuxedo and called "Tux".
  • Exclusive to Charizard:
    • It's said that that Charizard ascended by Mega Evolving to Mega Charizard X to take down Mewtwo, followed by breaking out as a solo fighter in the 4th Super Smash Bros. tournament. No one has yet to ask.
    • While Charizard is the sole deity, its previous evolutionary line also has the characteristics of Fiery Reptiles; it starts as Charmander born with a flame on its tail representing its life force, and Charmeleon's hot-temperance is the equivalent to its puberty stage.
    • The partnership program first led him to Harry Potter, who is known for his kind and benevolent heart, and proved to be able to temper the battle-loving Charizard and steer him towards more heroic purposes. After facing a Hungarian Horntail, this fire-tipped-tailed "dragon" was more reasonable. He's also useful in countering Voldemort's fiendfyre.
      • Due to the rework, and the fact that they haven't been able to see each other much, it was decided that he find a new partner, though they still remain friends. The candidates were Sanada Yukimura for some reason), Akane Hino, Rei Hino, Yoko Littner, Daenerys Targaryen, and Red. In the end, though, Charizard decided to stick with Harry as an ally, though he is still on good terms with the others.
      • Eventually, Charizard found a new partner, quite by accident. One fateful day, Natsu Dragneel and his friends at the Fairy Tail Guild learned of a small dragon going on a rampage in a remote village and were quick to investigate. It turned out to have been a Charizard, who accidentally ended up in Fiore and was attacked by mercenaries, only for the confused Pokémon to fight back and cause a ruckus. Natsu quickly subdued the dragon, swallowing some of its fire in the process, and was quick to realize it was only scared and needed protection. He brought Charizard back to the Pantheon, and after some discussion, the Higher Gods elected Natsu to be its partner, being a fire-wielder itself. Deep down, though, Natsu sees some similarity between Charizard and his dragon father, Igneel, and he figured that in a way — if he was Igneel — he'd do the same thing.
    • It can fly to almost 4m600 feet high, even higher if it Mega-Evolves into Mega Charizard Y.
    • Charizard is very glad that it becomes a Dragon-type (if only temporarily) as Mega Charizard X.
    • It will reserve using its powerful flames against appropriately powerful opponents.
    • Ash is very glad to see Charizard arriving in the Pantheon, even if the latter greets the former by setting him on fire.
    • The dragon gets along with Kirito, considering that the boy's voice is similar to Red.
    • Has been invited to participate in the upcoming Pokkén Tournament.
    • Has decided to seek out Paarthurnax to learn the ways of dragonkind.
  • Exclusive to Blastoise:
    • Blastoise doesn't like being with other lightning- or nature-based deities because they make him nervous, but he likes being with other water deities such as Aquaman, Percy Jackson, Swampert, Kingdra and Kyogre.
    • Blastoise is gets along well with Greninja for the most part due to the both of them being final-stage water starter Pokémon, but he secretly resents him for replacing Squirtle in the latest Super Smash Bros. tournament.
    • He's been seen helping the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on missions often. Despite his lack of agility, Blastoise more than makes up for it with great defenses and raw power, plus having many long-ranged attacks is very helpful to them.
    • Blastoise hates Bowser because despite being one of the few turtle deities, he's still an evil character. The Koopa King doesn't like him either for being water-based and thus able to counter his fire.
    • Due to interactions with The Mob, Blastoise sometimes can be seen as a detective known as "Shellock Holmes" and solving mysteries like his namesake, Sherlock Holmes. The detective is slightly weirded out how a Blastoise makes a good detective but doesn't let it bother him.

  • On a hot summer night in 1988, the town of Crescent Cove was invaded by a gaggle of clowns from outer space. These clowns had come to capture the people of the town in cotton candy cocoons so that they could eat them. Eventually, the town’s deputy was able to destroy the Klowns’s spaceship and take them with it, putting an end to the menace from the stars.
  • One day, things were going as normal in the Pantheon until a shooting star was observed overhead. When someone went to investigate, they found a circus tent there. Soon enough, freakish alien clowns began exiting the tent and began trying several underhanded tricks to kill the gods in the Pantheon, only to find that they were smarter than the people they had tried their tricks on before. The Killer Klowns From Outer Space, as they would come to be known, were forced to retreat back to their ship and find other ways to kill their prey.
  • The Klowns usually try to take out gods who have recently ascended or are relatively weak. Of course, those are few and far between, and so the Klowns struggle to adapt to people being able to fight back against them.
  • The Klowns’ leader is named Jojo the Klownzilla, the largest and most powerful of the group. He often resides in their spaceship turned temple as he is too big to leave it on his own.
    • Apart from Jojo, there are eight major Klowns who do most of the killing. There are other Klowns (including two female ones) but they usually clean up the mess the eight ones leave behind. The eight major Klowns are as follows:
      • Jumbo, a large Klown with green hair wearing purple. He is one of the most serious Klowns, often trying to lure child gods into traps.
      • Rudy, a Klown with red hair who imitates animatronics and takes out gods who fall for it.
      • Spike, a Klown with spiky pink hair who tricks gods with puppet shows about love.
      • Bibbo, a Klown wearing orange and red who imitates pizza delivery men to get Klowns to targets.
      • Shorty, the smallest of the Klowns who wears yellow, who punches the heads off gods who get on his bad side.
      • Fatso, a rotund Klown with red hair, who gets people to drop their guard by giving them chocolate.
      • Slim, the thinnest of the Klowns who wears a purple outfit, who drives an invisible car and kills people with shadow puppets.
      • Chubby, an obese Klown who has no determined method of killing people and just joins in on what the other Klowns are doing.
  • The Klowns were sighted causing mischief at Universal Studios on Halloween. Also sighted were brothers Rich and Paul Terenzi, who had assisted in saving the world from the Klowns during their invasion. Here, however, the brothers could do little to stop the Klowns from causing trouble.
    • The Klowns returned the year afterward, having set up a haunted house which retold their invasion of Crescent Cove- all while they scared the people coming through.
  • One day, the Klowns were plastering Yamcha with some of their acidic pies (yes, really), when the Joker passed by. He thought that what the Klowns were doing was quite impressive and wanted to know how it was done. Through a nearby corpse, which was used as a dummy, one of the Klowns was able to communicate with the Joker about things. Thus, the Joker is one of the few people the Klowns trust, and he often buys weapons off of them- finding them to be very useful when committing crimes.
    • On a similar note, Sweet Tooth found a group of homicidal vampiric clowns to be quite amusing. Thus, he often helps the Klowns get around the Pantheon in his ice-cream truck. It helps that the Klowns seem to think of the ice-cream truck to be an idol of Jojo.
    • Seeing as how his Subjuggulators are followers of the Klowns, Gamzee was quick to make an alliance with the Klowns. The other eleven trolls don’t like the Klowns since they remind them of the purple-bloods of their home.
    • But perhaps the clown who finds them the most likeable is Pennywise. Not only is he an alien who takes the form of a clown, but he admires their hunger for humans. When the Klowns met him, he quickly offered to assist the Klowns in killing people, and the Klowns accepted the partnership without a second thought.
  • Both Nathan Drake and Columbus became absolutely horrified at the sight of the Klowns and are often easy pickings for them. Usually, however, they are rescued before the Klowns can do anything bad to them. It’s more common for the less experienced Columbus to be caught by the Klowns, but less uncommon for Nathan, seeing as how he’s really good with a gun.
  • The fact that Jojo was killed by a cop has rubbed off on the Klowns the wrong way, and they now hate all law enforcement in the Pantheon. Unfortunately for them, the fact that they have an easily hittable weak spot, as well as usable guns, makes trying to kill them out of the question.
  • One time, the Klowns tried to kidnap Claire Redfield and Jill Valentine, and though they did manage to bring them to their ship via putting them in balloons, they soon discovered these two had significant firearm training and knew where to shoot, and promptly escaped after taking out several Klowns, though Jojo did avoid them. When the Klowns regenerated from the House of Life and Death several hours later, they began to despise the two as well as their partners.
  • Having dealt with some clowns of their own, the Green Flu survivors were prepared for when the Klowns tried to abduct them. The Klowns tried their hardest, but none of them were able to capture any of the survivors and had to flee.
  • Frank West was not pleased to hear about another group of murderous clowns having dealt with a mad, chainsaw-wielding clown named Adam during his time stuck in the mall. The Klowns, for once, opted not to attack him seeing as how he’s able to make weapons out of pretty much anything.
  • The Klowns thought Ben Tennyson would be a difficult foe to capture- but to their suprise, he was paralyzed with fright when they came to capture him, and didn’t put up a fight. However, the time the Klowns had with Ben captured was short lived, as Gwen, who is not scared of clowns, easily rescued him from them.
  • When discussing the Klowns, some deities like to joke how Billy claiming clowns would "destroy us all" was coming true. Billy’s response was to tell them he told them so.
  • The Klowns attempted to abduct Jax and his daughter, but their plans came to a screeching halt when Jax uppercutted one of them right in the nose and took it out. During the ensuing fight, Takeda joined in as well. The end result was that the Klowns were left humiliated and didn’t capture a single one of them.
  • Their encounter with Erma went badly when she started tossing their pies back at them, seemingly unaware of their corrosive properties as she had her fun.

  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Kilian Experience (Pichu only)
  • Pokemon come in all shapes and sizes, be it large or small, looking like animals or objects, or just some sort of strange thing entirely. Cute Pokemon just happen to be among the many things that exist in that world, and Pichu and Togepi fit that category well. Pichu is the pre-evolved form of Pikachu, itself a creature that’s already adorable on its own merits, and Pichu can be seen as a much cuter version of such. Togepi is one of a handful of baby Pokemon alongside Pichu and is a walking creature still not fully hatched from its egg that eventually evolves into some stronger (but no less cute) forms that can detect true happiness.
  • One day, a group of explorers came across a couple of strange eggs and decided to take it to a bestiary for further examination. Both items happened to be Pokemon eggs and that they would both hatch soon. The following day, one of the eggs hatched into a Pichu, but the other egg had seemingly disappeared from the workstation. Concerns initially grew that the other egg had been stolen after a quick search across the place for it. A small noise was then heard outside, which turned out to be Togepi, the other Pokemon that came from the egg. Having expressed relief that a potential disaster was averted, the group has since welcomed the two Pokemon to the Pantheon, a place where many big adventures await them.
  • As is to be expected with small creatures like them, those who have a fondness for cute things such as Rena Ryuuguu, Schezo Wegey, and S.A.T.8 have taken a liking to them. Both Pokemon enjoy the company of the two, and whenever Pikachu itself and Plusle & Minun are also involved, there’s bound to be some Cuteness Overload coming from the three humans. In that case, the two wouldn’t pass out from literal electric shock, but from the cuteness shock of seeing five adorable Pokemon at the same time.
  • Both Pokemon have been involved with the Smash tournaments in some way. Pichu got involved with Smash since the second iteration by using a similar fighting style as that of Pikachu, but the most notable difference (aside from being a bit faster than Pikachu) is that its electric attacks can hurt itself in addition to its foes. By contrast, Togepi is among the handful of Pokemon that can be summoned via Pokeball, but rather than directly damage foes with one type of move, it’s able to use a randomized move thanks to Metronome that can hinder the summoner’s opponents (or obscure the battlefield much to the annoyance of anyone watching). By the time Pichu returned for the fifth iteration, it got caught in Galeem & Dharkon’s war, with Togepi being among several Pokemon turned into a Spirit. Since Pichu was part of a wide variety of participants who fought back against the two monstrosities, some wonder if Pichu (and Togepi) really is able to fight back against similarly stronger adversaries, though it’s not that likely in the grand scheme of things.
    • The Kilian Experience has his own unique problem with Pichu as a result of the former’s attempt to become The World’s Best Smash Bros. Player. In spite of trying to rig the tournament in his favor, he ended up losing to a Level 2 Pichu while playing as Master Hand. Kilian Experience would only later defeat that somehow evil Pichu in a separate tournament via a technique called Ultimate Tax Evasion. He believes that the Pichu in the Pantheon is the exact same one that had harassed him in the past, though his claims are, to put it mildly, very shaky and the Pokemon doesn’t seem to know who he is more likely than not.
  • Baby Bink crossed paths with the two baby Pokemon at one point, becoming very enamored with them and decided to play with them. The two Pokemon enjoyed their time with him, though Bink being who he is, he ended up wandering elsewhere as the two were sleeping. Pichu ended up noticing that Bink disappeared and went around the Pantheon looking for him and after traversing some construction sites, discovered some thugs looking to kidnap Bink. Pichu then decided to take matters in its own hands and electrocuted the would-be kidnappers, driving them out of the city. Bink then appeared next to Pichu, happy that one Pokemon decided to play with him again. Pichu has since taken to be a big sibling figure to Bink, filling in a role similar to Yoshi in making sure he doesn’t end up in extremely dangerous places, protecting him from harm, and making sure Bink returns home safely.
  • While both are baby Pokemon that can hatch from an egg, the egg imagery is much more apparent with Togepi. Deities who have a strong association with eggs became curious about Togepi. Billy Hatcher initially mistook Togepi for a living egg given its appearance, but quickly came to see the egg as a good partner for his adventures. Horton was a bit surprised to see a creature like Togepi due to having to take care of an egg before, but was willing to take his time and be a surrogate father figure to the Pokemon. As for a young girl and a soldier that wandered an abandoned world with an egg, with how Togepi and its evolutionary line is associated with happiness, the two have wondered how different things might have been if Togepi were involved in their world. Nevertheless, the two don’t mind Togepi being around them, with the Pokemon having a sense of awareness of the pain the two have gone through.
  • For Samus, seeing Pichu in the Pantheon brought back memories of her time teaming up with Pikachu. She could tell that Pichu had a lot in common with Pikachu by virtue of it being the pre-evolved form of her companion during The Subspace Emissary incident. Pichu can very much be a capable fighter if the Smash battles offer some indication, though it can be prone to getting in much more danger. Whenever she isn’t out on adventure, Samus will sometimes tend to Pichu as a sort of motherly figure, with Pikachu nearby helping out.
  • Togepi and the rest of its evolution line are known to adore kind-hearted and happy people. As Wander and his companion Sylvia were traveling somewhere, they came across it and Pichu, with Wander taking a liking to both and Togepi finding Wander’s goals of seeking happiness admirable. Wander has accepted Togepi as a guest companion for his journeys and things went well overall until the Pokemon got kidnapped one day. Wander and Sylvia found out that Dr. Screwball Jones was behind the deed, with Togepi already saddened by what the banana was about to do. Even if Screwball Jones wanted to spread happiness, it was clear to both Wander and Togepi that the “happiness” that Screwball wanted to spread was fake. Wander and Sylvia defeated Screwball once more and rescued Togepi from the banana’s clutches. The general idea of forced happiness as enacted by Screwball Jones and Nerose Satanael (the latter of whom is much more extreme in every regard compared to Screwball) was something that really frightened Togepi.
  • Misty’s Togepi temporarily ended up in the care of a kind-hearted princess who would later have her own Togepi. The Togepi in the Pantheon would encounter a different, but no less friendly, princess one day as Nausicaä would end up finding it wandering around a dark forest. After finding it and nursing it back to health, she took the Togepi back to civilization where she learned about it, its evolutions, and how greatly associated they are with happiness and finding peace at the end of strife. Nausicaä decided to take care of the Togepi and take it as a traveling partner, knowing of the hope that its evolutions can bring at the end of a devastated world.

    The Temmies 
The Temmies, Race of Childlike Creatures (tEMMIE!, Tem, Temmiy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/temmie_tarrot.jpg
The most popular Temmies
  • Demideities
  • Symbol: A box of Temmie Flakes, sat on top of one of their jumpers. Alternatively, a graduation cap.
  • Theme Song: Temmie Village, Tem Shop
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Author Avatar for Temmie Chang, Cat Smile, Cloud Cuckoolanders, Cute part-cat creatures, really love Humans, The Ditz, Love Temmie Flakes, Will buy literally anything

  • Allies: Frisk, Ness, Lucas, Mr. Saturn, Rena Ryuugu, Tom Nook, Anna, Crazy Dave, Riki
  • Enemies: Flowey, Anyone who decides to not sell them what they want (Particularly Trolls).
  • Adore: Humans deities (Unless they're evil)
  • Temmies are a peculiar race of creatures that are Part-cat/Part-dog and are very peculiar amongst other monsters of the underground given that they live all in a village. They are rather childish creatures and have a particular way of speaking, making their ascension sort of a weird one. They just showed up one day and nobody questioned why they were there in the first place.
  • The members of the Temmie race are known as Temmie, Temmie, Temmie, Temmie, Temmie and Bob. The latter is the one that had the decency to ask the court of gods about their stay in the pantheon, given that Bob is the most normal of them all.
  • Temmies love humans and they are known to freak out whenever they see one. There is a chance that you could be allergic to Temmies, so be careful.
  • The Temmies have trouble pronouncing words correctly, often pronouncing words in a bizzare way. Of course, others could say that this language makes them a lot cuter.
  • When Rena first caught a glimpse of a Temmie, she immediately took her home. What Rena did not expect was that all the Temmies followed her as well and started hugging and petting her. It's not rare to see a lot of Temmies hanging around her temple, as they became good friends after a while.
  • The Temmies are considered to be the more Ditzy counterpart to the Mr. Saturns, given their similarities. Often the Saturns and the Temmies like to hold meetings in the house of Food where the Temmies share their Tem Flakes with the Saturns, who surprisingly they enjoy. It also happens that the Temmies are fans of both Ness and Lucas, who are also similar to the Human Child (And of course, they are humans).
  • Temmies used to be followers of Riki and now that they share houses they tend to visit him very often. Others will say that when the Temmies are around, they make Riki look like the most normal of them all.
  • There is one particular Temmie that runs the Tem Shop in the House of Commerce, where they sell and buy pretty much anything. It's been a popular place to visit and Temmie is happy with it.
    • Temmie will sometimes ask for money so she can go to college. She did go once but she forgot what she learned. Thankfully, Frisk stepped up and pay her college again. Now Temmie proudly sports a graduation cap when she is in her shop.
    • This Temmie is also good friends with other vendors like Anna or Tom Nook. The one she likes the most is Crazy Dave, since they aren't too different (and because he's a human).
  • One thing worth pointing out is that they don't like being refused when they want to buy something, especially the Temmie who runs the Tem Shop. They actually take it very seriously and even drop the accent to scold you.
    Temmie: You will regret this.
  • There is one Temmie who is allergic to herself and when she realized this, her face erupted in hoIVS. No, no one knows how or why this is a thing.
    Temmie: hOIVS!
  • Many have noticed that Temmies' faces are in constant vibration, sometimes even moving away from their bodies alltogether. There is not an explanation of this strange phenomenon.
  • "hOI!!!!! i'm tEMMIE!!!!"

Quasideities

    Prinnies 
Prinnies, The Servant Race
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pegleg_prinny.png
  • Quasideities (Yellow: Quasi+)
  • Symbol: A fish, a sword and a Cartoon Bomb
  • Theme song: Prinny My Love, alternatively Red Moon
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Serving every other species imaginable against their will, Having to make up for crimes in their past lives, Looking like arctic birds, blowing up by being thrown, Rarely working when left alone, Always saying the word "Dood!"
  • Domains: Birds, Ghosts, Glavery
  • Allies (aka people who at the very least treat them somewhat better than Etna): Flonne, Fluttershy, Valvatorez, Bob-ombs, Asagi Asagiri, Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private, Yoko Littner, Sicily, Chuck, Bandana Dee, the Blue Slimes, Usalia, Ice King
  • Their Lord and number one enemy: ETNA!
  • Enemies (aka people who treat them like Etna does or even worse): Laharl, Baal, Ghazghkull
  • Pitied by: Boa Hancock.
  • At times, many people feel sorry for the constant abuse that they take from most of their owners. Then they remember that most Prinnies are in fact the souls of murderers, thieves and other various criminals/sinners, leading to most sympathy going out the window.
  • Now and then, Etna will "bless" one of her Prinnies to go on a somewhat important mission. And of course, those missions will always lead to that Prinny getting killed over and over again.
  • They stay as far away as possible from Ghazghkull, knowing how he is one of the few gods who actually treats his Prinnies WORSE than Etna does. Some Lost refugee Prinnies compare him to Demon Emperor Void Dark prior to Killia's attack.
  • The Penguins of Madagascar have made it their sworn duty to someday defeat Etna and liberate all the Prinnies as fellow "penguins". If nothing else, it does give the Prinnies a good laugh whenever Etna is on the receiving end of a well-done prank. Of course, only the idiotic ones let their merriment be known around her.
  • Every now and then, all the Prinnies—or at least those who have cleansed themselves of their sins—go to the highest point in the Pantheon under the light of the Red Moon to have their souls cleansed and reincarnated. Fluttershy comforts them as they move to the great beyond.
  • Every once in a while, strong Prinnies gather together to form Pringer X, a power robotic Prinny capable of defeating Baal and had once nearly taken Baal out of pantheon due to some nasty tricks like resisting attack used on it. However, when Baal came back more powerful than ever and turned Pringer X into a pincushion for his swords, the Prinnies have no longer attempted to become Pringer X.
  • Prinnies under the instruction of Valvatorez are notably more efficient and loyal than Prinnies under the watch of Etna. While not effective fighters, they are very effective scouts, being able to reliably gather information for Fenrich. This has caused many gods to be a little more cautious around Prinnies since Fenrich is very good at using information to his advantage.
    • Sicily sometimes likes to dote on the Prinnies, though Valvatorez will remind her not to spoil them, as they're still sinners who need to work off their sins.
  • As of late, a band of yellow Prinnies have been sighted around the Pantheon under the command of Usalia. The Pantheon is still reacting to this discovery.
    • Etna's sadism to her own prinnies kicked up a notch when but one of these new Prinnies stole her caramel mix, mistaking it for curry; this didn't anger her as much, given it was returned after the thief realized its mistake, but her entire prinny squad was obliterated trying to capture it. Etna's own attempt to capture these prinnies left her angrier still when she opened her bag and saw a single explosive carrot left inside.
    • Valvatorez bore witness to a squadron of these prinnies punching above their weight class and bringing down several Lesser Deities who thought them easy marks. He has been left confused, more on their Verbal Tic of "plip!" than their newfound competence. A discussion with Usalia has been planned for later in the month.
  • Hilarity ensued when a group of Prinnies accidentally sang "Red Sun" on the night of their redemption, rather than Red Moon. Sundowner had a chuckle when he found out.
  • Can also be found in Minions & Sidekicks.
