  • Feared by: The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog
  • Ascended after the events of his lifemore specifically, taking a stand against an entire army regiment led by a corrupt law official to give his family time to escape and going down fighting to the end. He was upset at first at no longer having his family, but the Judge said that being also former outlaws, they would ascend as his Heralds. John was surprised at the news that his son was an outlaw (since his wife was a given as she too once ran in his old gang), and was dismayed at hearing his son Jack taking revenge against the corrupt official who had him killed by killing him in return and following in his footsteps. He wanted to be reunited with his son, but not in this manner and blamed himself for not teaching him better. When he saw Jack, he said not a word despite Abigail’s pleas.
  • Even though they don’t have any power or authority in the Pantheon being mere heralds, it is not a good idea to threaten John’s wife and kid as he will immediately go Papa Wolf on the unlucky deity with a Dead Eye-infused Evans Repeater salvo. It’s this reason he is allied with the League of Extreme Fatherhood.
  • Because of his past, most obstinate members of the House of Justice would want nothing more than see him pay horribly for his crimes. While it is true that John agrees that he can’t change his past and tries to atone for it which was the reason for his Heroic Sacrifice, he lives for his family now. He is at least glad he has a friend in Jean Valjean to counter many of the accusations there.
  • His "temple" in the House of Ambiguity is more or less a grander version of his homestead in Beecher's Hope, now a magnificent ranch rivalling that of his friends, the MacFarlenes, complete with a mighty herd of cattle, horses and other livestock, fields of wondrous crops (helped with assistance from the Farmer), beautiful orchards of apples (donated by Johnny Appleseed) and even a saloon for his friends in the Pantheon. The cows from his temple are considered sacred and their milk is very nutritious. Being a friendly sort, he generally ships jugs and cartons of his cows’ milk to the House of Food and Elysium Academy for consumption or cooking use.
    • Even though the saloon is not as fancy as Moe’s Tavern, it is still a simple place to have homemade Western-style cuisine (courtesy of Abigail’s cooking and the homegrown meat and crops), cold drinks at the bar, or a good game of Poker or Liar’s Dice (with a horseshoes pitch outside). John Wayne and the Man with No Name (being paragons of the West) hang out here. Chie Satonaka is also a frequent patron after she gave her seal of approval towards their steaks. Moe has a good relationship with John and allows his followers/assistants to tend to the bar there.
  • Applejack likes to visit John's ranch as it reminds her of her home at Sweet Apple Acres. Abigail and Jack took a liking to her and take care of her as if she was one of their horses. To the surprise of many, she tends to enter the saloon and engage in a round of Liar’s Dice or two. Needless to say, she is very bad at it (she’s the Element of Honesty, after all). When it comes to Horseshoes, however...
  • Lucky Luke paid him a visit hearing about his former outlaw ways but stopped short of bringing him in after seeing how he has changed and meeting his family. Still, he was curious about John's shooting ability and challenged him to a duel which John accepted. While Luke won, he was impressed with John's skill and became good-natured rivals. Luke was even glad there was a saloon in the Pantheon, in which he could have a good meal, which Abigail is happy to have ready for him.
  • The Kombatant gods tend to give him odd looks as he somewhat reminds them of a certain mercenary under Kotal Kahn’s employment. John merely shrugs it off.
  • He is quite knowledgeable about certain plants which he uses as makeshift medicines, which impressed Poison Ivy. What impressed Pamela even more is that John is completely immune to her pheromones. He is that dedicated to his wife Abigail.
    • It was being so knowledgeable about medicinal plants that he became allies with Eirin Yagokoro, who is glad to find someone able to find good herbs and plants for use in her medicines.
  • Even though he doesn’t like to brag, he is very very good with guns. His special ability is the Dead Eye, which not only allows him to continuously fire all the available rounds of a gun before reloading, but also gives him an impressive invincibility buff while it is active. Its only drawback is that it doesn’t last too much. Still, the skill has helped him not only against fighting whole bands of outlaws and army regiments but also packs of wild animals.
    • Marcus Kincaid offered some of his Pandoran-based weapons to John in order to test how the Dead Eye would work with them. While John had no affinity for the futuristic weapons, he, however, liked the Jakobs brand of guns as they reminded him more of the weapons of his time.
  • Aside from defeating outlaws and doing some bounty hunting, John is also an accomplished hunter, which his Dead Eye ability helps out when going after extremely dangerous prey such as native cougars and bears of his world. He, of course, is cautioned to watch himself when going to the House of Beasts. The Monster Hunters, naturally, made him an honorary member.
    • Stephen Colbert also holds him in high regard for fighting the good fight against the Bear Menace. (If only he ever heard of the time John faced and killed zombie bears…)
  • After hearing of his hunting prowess, some gods (particularly allies to the Trollkaiger) told him about a certain special rabbit in the Sub-House of Mammals. When John met the Rabbit of Caerbannog, he was nearly mauled when it struck him unaware. Taking out his Buffalo Rifle and loading it with blessed phosphorous bullets, he went into Dead Eye mode and…'''BOOM'''. All that was left of the Rabbit were some of its fangs, fur, and one of its feet, which he collected as trophies. The Trollkaiger (who hoped John would get massacred) wasn’t deterred, because killing the Rabbit would bring upon John the ire of Tewi Inaba, who naturally was upset at someone killing her subordinate, and was ready to curse John with bad luck. They also counted on her being so mad that she would be unwilling to listen to John explain himself, which she was. However, Eirin appeared at just the right moment and told Tewi to hold off from cursing him until John carefully explained the situation. She proved to be the Spanner in the Works for Trollkaiger, because once John was done explaining, Tewi and Eirin realized it was that group that was behind this. Needless to say, Trollkaiger suffered a bout of bad luck for quite some time. Tewi told John he could keep the fangs, fur, and rabbit’s foot, but warned him to never again go after the Rabbit. The Rabbit itself, being a deity in this pantheon, was quickly revived, but now has a deep-rooted fear of the ex-outlaw.
  • In an alternate universe, John was caught in the middle of a Zombie Apocalypse and actually survived it, dealing with not just regular zombies, but also zombified wild animals as well. This has earned him the respect of the ascended BSAA members.
    • The Four Horsemen were actually shocked to learn John was able to break and tame their mounts from that alternate verse. Most of the Horsemen consider him a nuisance, except for Death, who already had a history with John; he met him several times in his quest in the guise of a stranger with a top hat and mustache. John considers him a bothersome pest.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_seven_deadly_sins_king.png

  • Intermediate God (Greater God when wielding New True Spirit Spear Chastiefol)
  • Symbol: His Grizzly's Sin Tattoo
  • Theme Song: Harlequin
  • Alignment: Neutral Good with Chaotic Good tendencies
  • Portfolio: Accomplice by Inaction, Nice Guy, Heroic Self-Deprecation, Can change into a fat human form, Can alter and control matter at a molecular level, and has complete control over nature, Wields the Spirit Spear Chastiefol, which can fly, and change its shape via King's will, Has incredible magic skills but is physically weak, Was rejected by the fairies as their king, but was accepted by them once more after protecting them
  • Domain(s): Fairies, Kingship, Nature, Memory Loss, Inaction, Redemption
  • Allies: Meliodas, Diane, Ban, Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Navi, Yui, Wendy Darling, Aang, Captain Planet, King (KoF), King II, almost the entire House of Fairies
  • Enemies: Ten Commandments, The Fairy Godmother, Maleficent, Captain Hook, Führer King Bradley, Shin
  • Conflicting Opinion: Harley Quinn
  • King's real name is Fairy King Harlequin. He was born more than a thousand years ago from the Sacred Tree of the Fairy King's Forest and was later chosen by the Sacred Tree to be the third Fairy King of the Fairy Clan. After leaving the forest in order to save his friends from humans who were after their wings, King was attacked from behind and almost fatally injured. King was later found lying unconscious on a riverbank by a Giant named Diane, who nursed him back to health. Due to his injuries, King had forgotten about his life as the Fairy King and subsequently spent 500 years playing with and protecting Diane. Eventually, King finally remembered his identity and went to a close-by village that was seemingly under attack by the man who had nearly killed him centuries ago. However, the man turned out to be King's friend Helbram, who was using the identity of the person who hunted down the fairies for their wings and had spent the past centuries slaughtering humans out of revenge. Deciding to end Helbram's rage against the humans, King ended up killing him. King then went back to Diane to erase her memories of him, fearing that he would be unable to protect anyone anymore. King was then captured by unknown Holy Knights and was condemned for the crime of sloth, as he had seemingly turned a blind eye to Helbram's mass murder of humans. Unaware at the time, one of the Holy Knights that captured him was Meliodas, whom King would be properly introduced to after joining the Seven Deadly Sins.
  • Upon ascending into the pantheon, King instantly looked for Diane and the two had a happy reunion. He was also glad to see Meliodas and Ban again as well. However, he was also annoyed to discover that the Ten Commandments were present there as well, although he was happy to be reunited with Gloxinia, who had died in battle against the Demon Chandler after turning good.
  • King is on good terms with Peter Pan, who initially mistook him for a human child. Upon learning that King was a fairy, Peter started shaking him in order to see whether he would emanate fairy dust, much to King's annoyance. Peter frequently likes to encourage King to be more of a troublemaker and a better physical fighter, although King isn't particularly good at being either one.
  • King gets along well with most members of the House of Fairies. His first meeting with King Oberon and Queen Titania was rather tense, as they suspected him of being a potential usurper, but they quickly got along once they realized that he had no evil intentions. The only member of the House of Fairies that King actively dislikes is the Fairy Godmother, as he does not approve of her evil doing. She initially dismissed him as harmless, but quickly started to fear him after he demonstrated his magical power.
  • Other fairies that reside outside of the House of Fairies that King has befriended include Navi and Yui. Although King is on friendly terms with Navi, he usually doesn't spend much time with her because, like many others, he quickly got annoyed by her constant attempts to help him. On the other hand, he's on much better terms with Yui, who reminds him of the Fairies from his universe. However, he frequently struggles trying to comprehend her nature as an Artificial Intelligence.
  • Through his friendship with Peter Pan, King also befriended Tinker Bell and Wendy Darling. King frequently chastises Tinker Bell for her jealous nature and generally tries to stop her from playing any mean tricks on any perceived rivals for Peter's affection. Wendy, meanwhile, enjoys being around King, happy to have finally met a nice fairy. However, King's friendship with Peter has also resulted in him becoming enemies with Captain Hook, who wants King's head almost as much as he wants that of Peter.
  • King also quickly became enemies with Maleficent after being told about her by Flora, Fauna and Merryweather. The two once engaged in a battle during which Maleficent transformed into her Dragon Form. Using True Spirit Spear Chastiefol, King managed to narrowly win, although Maleficent survived and intends to one day avenge her defeat.
  • King drew the attention of Harley Quinn after she had heard of his true name. Although initially disappointed by his lack of harlequin motif, she found him to be very cute and liked his sweet olive scented body odor. Despite the fact that she's a villain and them technically being enemies, the two are on reasonably good terms and Harley is even an active supporter of King and Diane's relationship. Despite this, the two have also occasionally clashed in battle, with King generally trying to convince her to abandon crime, often to no avail.
  • King frequently visits the House of Nature and has become good friends with Aang and Captain Planet. Whenever the House of Nature is threatened or under attack, King is often one of the first to participate in its defense.
  • Like the other Sins, King occasionally undergoes a change in behaviour. However, King's personality stays mostly the same, albeit ruder, and he's generally the Only Sane Man among the Sins when they act like this, much to his frustration.
  • King was surprised to discover that there were several people within the pantheon that share his name. He gets along well with both the French kickboxer known as King and the Mexican wrestler known as King II, although he was rather taken aback by the fact that the former was a woman. However, he also strongly opposes King Bradley and Shin (who uses "King" as an alias).

  • The tale of Aladdin has gone through many iterations and adaptations over the centuries. But for the sake of the Pantheon, we shall tell one version of the story, the tale of a young man whose true potential lay beneath his harsh upbringing, like a diamond in the rough. His name was Aladdin, and to say his life was difficult would be a gross understatement. As a boy, Al's father left home in search of treasure, his mother dying not long after. Left orphaned and alone, he was forced to fend for himself, stealing to eat and evading the royal guards at every turn. Years would pass and in time Aladdin became a skilled and cunning thief, helped by his trusty monkey companion Abu and known throughout Agrabah as a "Street Rat." But one day his life would change forever when he helped save a young woman from an angry merchant. The girl whom he befriended, and fell in love with, just so happened to be Princess Jasmine, a fact he discovered as the guards dragged him off to the dungeon. His stay was short-lived, as an elderly prisoner needed his help in finding an old lamp deep within the Cave of Wonders. Aladdin accepted and entered the cave, finding the lamp while befriending a magic carpet in the process. However, the Cave of Wonders began to collapse, and the elderly prisoner - in truth, the sorcerer Jafar - betrayed Al and left him to die buried beneath the sand. Luckily, Abu managed to nab the lamp, allowing Al to discover the true treasure within; a blue, wise-cracking genie who will grant his master - Aladdin - three wishes. The young street rat took advantage of this. After tricking Genie into helping him escape the cave without a wish,note  Al used his first wish to become a prince, in order to be with Jasmine. She was initially unimpressed, but she was eventually won over by his natural charm and quick wit. It didn't last long. Jafar discovered Ali's true identity and stole the lamp, forcing the Genie to reveal Aladdin's deception and take over Agrabah, sending the boy away to die in a frozen wasteland. Al didn't die though and after returning to the palace, faced off against Jafar and tricked the sorcerer into becoming a genie... all to seal him away in his own lamp. With the city restored and the day saved, Aladdin used his last wishnote  to free the Genie and, with the Sultan's blessing, he and Jasmine became a couple.
    • Aladdin and Jasmine ascended to the Pantheon at the same time, but they didn't arrive immediately. Following Jafar's second defeat Al, Jasmine, and their friends ended up going on multiple other adventures both in Agrabah and beyond. But before marrying the princess, Al discovered his father was not only alive but also was the "King of Thieves", hunting for the legendary Hand of Midas. After making amends with his father and helping him defeat the treacherous Saluk, only then did Al and Jasmine tie the knot. Not long after the wedding, a mysterious gateway opened up in the palace. They entered it, discovering a strange land full of people and creatures unlike any seen in Agrabah. The land was known as The Pantheon and Jasmine and Aladdin were welcomed by the other royals living there... but there was a slight problem. Abis Mal, an arrogant thief and minor pain in everyone's side, managed to sneak into the Pantheon and had planned on stealing from the treasury. True to form, the princess and former street rat went straight to work, hunting down and putting the pitiful thief in his place. Abis Mal was banished back to the desert, and for their heroic actions, Aladdin and Jasmine were made deities in the Pantheon. Al was content with his position as the God of Street Urchins, as long as he got to be with Jasmine in the Pantheon. Plus, as an added bonus, Abu, Carpet, Genie and the Sultan were all ascended too and together, the gang was ready for more adventures in the Pantheon, and to explore the worlds beyond their homeland.
  • Aladdin's temple leads to two locations. The first, and most obvious, is the Sultan's Palace. This grand structure, the largest in all of Agrabah, has become Al's new home since he married Jasmine. But he has another destination set up; his old home on the outskirts of the city. It is a simple dilapidated hovel but being on the top of a larger building allows for some spectacular views of the Palace, something Al always appreciated when he lived on the streets. He stops by the run-down structure from time to time to reminisce and as a hideout to surprise any thieves he plans to steal from.
  • Like many beings in the Pantheon, Aladdin's appearance can change depending on the situation. His animated Disney self is his most commonly seen incarnation, recognized by his distinctive purple vest and red fez. But he has been sighted in much more distinct looks from time to time. Occasionally, Aladdin is seen as his live-action personifications, the former struggling with his insecurities and relying on his princely status as a crutch, while the latter was once a Savior in the Magical Lands who gave it his all before becoming a broken wreck in the present. There is also his Attacker form, a perverted yet chivalrous individual who first appeared in the Pantheon following his death protecting his friend Reina. He has also been seen as a spy for Sinbad, a kind-hearted man wishing to help his mother, and a resident of The Library wishing to revive his author to gain more monetary wealth so he can revive his love. But the rarest of all is the original. The very first Aladdin... who happened to be a poverty-stricken young man from China who possessed not only the Genie of the lamp but a second genie trapped in a ring. Al will transform into any of these forms should he see fit, which has led to no end of confusion for his friends, who are too used to his initial appearance. On a side note, the less we talk about Al's "Dingo" incarnation the better.
    • On rare occasions, he has been known to start acting rather differently for short periods of time, during which he will steal literally everything in sight and ask any attractive Goddesses he comes across to take off their clothes. In song no less. It also turned out he killed his own parents due to his split personality, a revelation that even Jafar was put off by. When questioned about these episodes, he's reacted with confusion, stating he has no memory of it whatsoever.
  • Not long after they ascended, Aladdin and Jasmine had an encounter with the Greek demigod Hercules. Now it wasn't exactly on the best of terms, as Herc and Al were tricked by their enemies - Hades and Jafar - into fighting each other. Thankfully, they were able to figure out the deception and joined forces to defeat their respective enemies. Afterwards, Aladdin and Jasmine will sometimes visit the demigod's temple, sharing their stories and their experiences in the Pantheon. Al also trusts Herc to help Jasmine in case there's a threat that he's not around or can't deal with alone, which Herc is more than happy to oblige.
  • Although he's retired from being a street rat, Aladdin will occasionally steal from other thieves and give the riches to the poor and needy in Agrabah, acting as a Robin Hood-esque figure. During one such expedition, he crossed paths with a bipedal raccoon dressed in blue and wielding a golden cane. This raccoon, named Sly Cooper, had been tracking down a mysterious artifact that had been stolen by his former teammate, Penelope Mouse. Al offered to help and the two worked together to snag the treasure back. After that, the two became fast friends, hanging out from time to time and sharing their adventures and endeavours. Al learned of Sly's ancestor Salim Al-kupar, who once led the 40 Thieves before entering retirement... after Sly helped rescue his cane from the time-travelling thief La Paradox. This surprised Aladdin, though he's yet to ask his father if was ever an anthropomorphic raccoon in their ranks.
    • One day, Al and Sly were hanging out when they heard a commotion in the House of Fashion. When they got there, they found Jasmine fleeing for her life from an apparently enraged Carmelita Fox. Al rescued Jasmine using Carpet while Sly distracted the infuriated Interpol agent and that was when Jasmine confessed what happened. Jasmine and Carmelita had met a few days before, back when she was in her Storybrooke attire. When they met next, the princess was in her formal dress, which inadvertently brought back bad memories of Carmelita's brief stint as a belly dancer back in Ancient Arabia. Then Carmelita found out that the princess was married to the son of the King of Thieves. Aladdin and Sly found the whole predicament rather humourous and since then, Al keeps an eye out for Carmelita should she ever decide to come after him. Funnily enough, Al, Jasmine and Sly will team up with Carmelita to deal with the notorious vulpine criminal, Reynard, particularly when he sought the treasure within the Cave of Wonders. Reynard wasn't happy about being thwarted and vowed to get back at the street rat.
  • As his tale is often considered part of the Arabian Nights, Aladdin found himself making friends with those who also hail from the Night's other stories. He and Jasmine became friends with the Persian queen Scheherezade, who was flattered by their admiration for her stories and confidence in avoiding certain death. They like to visit the Queen from time to time, with Jasmine and Al sharing their own batch of adventures for Scheherezade to tell others. Then there was Prince Achmed. Al was surprised when Achmed approached him one day, excited to reunite with his 'brother-in-law", but the latter quickly realized Al wasn't exactly the same as he had remembered. Of course, both Aladdins had started out as poor peasants until chanced upon a genie in a lamp who turned their life around. But Aladdin was quick to point out he had never gone to China and he was married to Jasmine and not to Achmed's sister Dinarsade. Not to mention, the only Achmed Aladdin met was an arrogant prince who insulted him for his poverty. Aladdin was initially skeptical of Achmed given he was born into royalty. Fortunately, Achmed was a pretty polite guy unless you threaten his loved ones, and besides that, he finds Aladdin admirable for defeating Jafar and being selfless enough to spend a wish on releasing the Genie. So ultimately, Achmed became good friends with Aladdin, as well as Jasmine and Genie, and friendly diplomatic relations between Achmed and Jasmine's fathers were established. Ever since things have gone swimmingly for the two.
  • Al was surprised to see his father Cassim, the King of Thieves, and Iago the parrot in the Pantheon, especially since they were last seen riding into the desert following Al and Jasmine's wedding. They were both equally surprised to see him and the others from Agrabah in the Pantheon as well. Despite this, they were happy to catch up and take part in numerous new adventures in the worlds beyond Agrabah. Cassim was impressed to hear how his son has improved, even learning about his time fighting with Hercules, something Iago was flabbergasted by. Al simply smiled and shrugged it off, saying it was just another day in my crazy life.
  • One time, Aladdin heard rumours that he was in the House of Music playing a strange flute, even though he was in the House of Commerce at the time. Curious, he went investigating and was surprised to see this other Aladdin was not who he was expecting. He was a young, blue-haired Magi chosen one tasked with finding a king to rule the entire world. Al talked with him for a while and over time they got to know each other, with "Blue Al" introducing him to his friends Alibaba Saluja and Morigana. All three later helped Aladdin and Jasmine out when Jafar attempted to destroy Agrabah with Erazor Djinn's assistance, further cementing their friendship.
  • Al wasn't too keen on having separate temples from Jasmine, but he quickly found camaraderie with the other criminals in the House of Crime and Transgressions. Besides the Cooper gang, he's befriended the legendary Prince of Thieves himself, Robin Hood, who praised Al for his skills as a thief, along with becoming a better man than what he started out as after meeting Jasmine. Robin's friend Friar Tuck also developed a fondness for the former street rat, comparing him to Robin on many occasions and had offered him a place in Nottingham should Prince John ever send his soldiers after Aladdin. And while Al doesn't get along with Reynard the Fox, he quickly bonded with Nick Wilde, a former con artist who used his street smarts to survive and eventually became an officer for the Zootopia Police Department. Nick and his partner, Judy Hopps, will sometimes call on Aladdin to help them with investigations in the desert, or if they hear anything about Jafar.
    • But there are those who Al has trouble working with, despite respecting them. Baltimore-based robber Omar Young took a liking to Aladdin, as Omar also grew up on the streets as a young man with crime as his only choice to avoid going hungry and avoid complete destitution. That being said, Al is a bit wary of hanging out with Omar, as he's always been much more willing to use violent force and other harsh methods than Aladdin ever was. Nonetheless, Aladdin appreciates the backup from time to time. The same applies to Jason Todd. Like Aladdin, he too grew up an orphan on the streets, stealing to survive... at least until he was taken in by Batman. But that's where the similarities end. Now the Red Hood, Jason has no qualms about using brutal force to achieve his goals, even trying to kill Abis Mal when he snuck back into the Pantheon a second time. Al stopped Jason, and while the two respect each other, their mentalities prevent them from properly working together.
  • Back when he was living on the streets, Aladdin's motto was "gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat." Even so, he and Abu would often hand his hard-earned meals to others less fortunate than himself. as such, while he enjoys the royal life, he remains as humble as ever, even making friends with others who rose above their previous poverty and gained better lives. Besides Nick Wilde, Al befriended the kind-hearted Sara Crewe and the plucky Candice White, both of whom were forced into dire situations and were well rewarded for their optimism and determination - Sara regaining her lost upper-class status and Candy achieving a happy fulfilling life. This did not sit well with the snobbish Reagan siblings, Eliza and Neil. Both view Aladdin as a worthless, flea-ridden street rat, not unlike how Prince Achmed once called him, and believe he doesn't deserve his royal status. The same applies to Mr. Burns, but only because he needs an excuse to keep Al from stealing his money and to buy out Agrabah from the Sultan. For his part, Al doesn't trust either Mr. Burns or the Reagan twins and remains thankful for everything that has happened in his life.
  • One day, Aladdin was ambushed by a group of mysterious men while trying to steal several ancient relics. They were members of the Templar Order, and they weren't too keen on a street rat stealing from them. He would've been executed, had it not been for Jasmine, Abu and Genie coming to the rescue; and they didn't come alone. The 12th century Assassin, Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, had been tracking down Templar activity when he spotted Aladdin being captured and was convinced by Jasmine to join forces to rescue Aladdin and escape the Templars. Since then, Altaïr and the Assassin Order have been sighted in Agrabah, perhaps to keep things secure. Aladdin doesn't mind; he respects Altaïr after being rescued and he knows if the Palace needs help, they'll step in.
  • For a brief period of time, the Sultan was in talks with Lord Tywin Lannister to establish trade relations between Agrabah and the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, something that Aladdin struggled with due to not being versed in politics. After the talks were finished, Al and Jasmine took some time to go into the marketplace, where they crossed paths with a mysterious man who had just finished wiping the floor with the royal guards. It turned out he was another Westerosi noble; Prince Oberyn of House Martell. After things were cleared up, the three began to converse and when the princess mentioned Tywin had visited, Oberyn bluntly told her and Aladdin about Tywin's cruelty and ruthlessness and how his knight, Ser Gregor Clegane, had murdered his sister Elia and her two children. This warning was enough for Al and Jasmine to convince The Sultan to halt all further talks with Tywin, even forbidding Ser Gregor from ever setting foot in Agrabah. Tywin was less than impressed and left the Palace... but not without leaving a single warning. A Lannister always pays his debts.
    • Thanks to the incident with Tywin, Aladdin has shown great distrust for the rest of House Lannister, due to their apparent arrogance and for abusing the common folk. In particular, he not only disliked Queen Cersei for her cruel and vain nature, but also for once called Jasmine nothing a "Dornish whore" who has no right to be a proper ruler. Jasmine's counter? "At least I didn't sleep with my brother." It was enough to send the Queen of Westeros away fuming and leaving Aladdin awestruck and impressed. As for Cersei's equally cruel son Joffrey, he once tried courting Jasmine to be his queen, right in front of Aladdin no less. Al was just about to take the snobbish boy out only for Jasmine to leave Joff with a black eye for his troubles. Now he intends on invading Agrabah in revenge. The only Lannister they get along with is Tommen, mostly because they see a lot of The Sultan in him, especially when Jafar began to manipulate Tommen in a similar manner. They intend on making sure he doesn't go the same road the Sultan did, at all costs.
  • Thanks to Genie, Aladdin has come to meet many more jinn living in the Pantheon. Some of them were good or respectable beings and others were just as bad as Jafar. On the heroic side of things, there's the kind-hearted Jeannie and the spunky half-genie Shantae. Both were quick to befriend Al and learn about all of his adventures. It also helped that Shantae aided Al and Jasmine in defending Agrabah when her old enemy, the pirate Risky Boots, attacked the city. Al and Jasmine will sometimes visit Scuttle Town to hang out with Shantae and Jeannie, taking in the sights and getting into all sorts of shenanigans. They also had to work together with the Genie in roping in the mischievous Pokémon, Hoopa when it came to Agrabah and caused a ruckus by unleashing several Legendary Pokémon upon the city. Jeannie and Shantae have explained Hoopa was harmless in its Confined Forme but Aladdin and Jasmine remain wary of it, due to seeing just how dangerous it was in its Unbound Forme.
    • On the flip side, Al and his friends became enemies with Erazor Djinn due to his intent on destroying the Arabian Nights, even going so far as to team up with Jafar to do so. The fact that Erazor is a dark version of the Genie he knew doesn't help a single bit. Then there's the ghostly Desiree, who has tried to dispose of Aladdin on several occasions while he tried to defend Jasmine. What surprised Aladdin though is that Desiree doesn't outright hate Jasmine. In fact, she understood Jasmine's frustration with an Arranged Marriage, having been in one herself. For their part, Aladdin Jasmine pitied Desiree and the circumstances leading to her death but they're not up for letting the undead genie hurt them or their friends.
  • Thanks to his encounter with Erazor Djinn, Aladdin found himself encountering a blue-furred super-fast hedgehog named Sonic, along with his friends, Tails and Knuckles. Truth be told though, Al initially mistook Tails for Ali Baba and Knuckles for Sinbad the Sailor. Sonic understood the confusion, as he made the same mistake before. But they've offered to help out with defeating Erazor again, even if Knuckles finds Aladdin's Genie to be incredibly annoying.
  • Aladdin and Jasmine became friends with a young warrior named Chrono and a girl named Marle, in actuality, Princess Nadia of Guardia. While the two ladies bonded over their shared problems with being overly-sheltered princesses, although The Sultan was less strict, Al and Chrono discussed their own history, with Al learning Crono was with her in the Millennial Fair, showing her the many sights around them much like how he showed Jasmine the world while riding the magic carpet. Marle and Chrono were glad that Aladdin managed to get married to Jasmine even though he wasn't royalty, much like Marle's own marriage to Crono (who was much better off than Aladdin but still a commoner nevertheless).
  • In one timeline, Agrabah was invaded by mysterious creatures known as The Heartless, which Jafar was controlling for his own plans. Aladdin found himself befriending a spiky-haired boy named Sora, along with his companions Donald Duck and Goofy, who helped him defeat the Heartless and seal away Jafar in his lamp, though they were unable to save Jasmine from being abducted by Jafar's superior, Maleficent. Unable to leave his homeworld, Aladdin freed the Genie in order to help Sora and his friends on their journey to save Jasmine and the other Princesses Of Heart, which they were successful with. Sora would visit Agrabah again, helping Al to stop Pete and later on a freed Jafar from destroying the kingdom. Ever since, Al has remained close friends with Sora, Donald and Goofy, and are often seen together hanging out and catching up on their adventures. Al and Jasmine were even introduced to Sora's human friends; fellow Princess of Heart Kairi and Keyblade wielder Riku... who just so happened to be the same guy who kidnapped Jasmine for Maleficent. Aladdin and Jasmine were hesitant to trust him, despite his insistence that he turned over a new leaf. Thankfully, Riku got the chance to prove himself when he helped defend Agrabah from Organization XIII member Larxene, even performing the Speedster Limit Break that Aladdin would normally do with Sora. Aladdin was thankful for the help and will sometimes ask for Riku's help whenever Sora isn't available; it was especially helpful considering that many of Sora's enemies have their eyes set on Agrabah.
    • Thanks to his time with Sora, Aladdin has learned a few techniques for fighting in the Pantheon. His quick movements and skill with a scimitar can force enemies to drop Drive and MP orbs if his attacks are successful. If Sora is present, his speed will be increased as per their Speedster Limit Break.
  • While wandering through the Pantheon, Aladdin found himself within the Great Library and was awestruck by the number of books housed within. So awestruck in fact that Al nearly stepped on a small green worm with spectacles. This bookworm, named Lex, was initially distrustful of the former street rat, especially since he was in his Disney persona. But what initially seemed to be a bad confrontation ended up being a swell meeting after Lex realized that the Aladdin in question was not a shady trickster merchant but rather a genuinely good guy. Aladdin's not sure where he got that initial conclusion but he likes to have him around whenever he visits Agrabah.
  • One time, Aladdin discovered Jasmine had been trapped in a giant hourglass by Jafar and had to race across Agrabah to save her. Along the way, he happened upon a strange talking meerkat, named Timon, who was accidentally brought to the desert by the Genie's lamp. With the meerkat's help, Al rescued Jasmine and save the day. Every now and then, Timon will visit Aladdin's temple to say hi, alongside his warthog companion Pumbaa. Al doesn't seem to mind, and although Timon was a little bummed he didn't get a reward for his efforts, he and Pumbaa are still fine hanging out in the palace... so long as Jasmine's tiger Rajah doesn't try to eat them.
  • Now, Aladdin is not overly familiar with the giant mechas known as Gundams or the wars they're used in. But he has absolutely no tolerance for Ali Al-Saachez, and not just because the latter nicknamed himself Prince Ali to mock the former. Turns out, Al had learned of Saachez's involvement in destroying the Kingdom of Azadistan and the Republic of Kurgis twice over, once through recruiting child soldiers and raising an army with them with, the second time using the Arche Gundam to raze the nations. If anything, Aladdin knows that such a monster should never be allowed anywhere near Agrabah, so he's barred Saachez entry into his homeworld. Ali-Al doesn't care for Agrabah, but he has warned Aladdin that he'll kidnap Jasmine and slowly torture her to death, not unlike how he killed Kinue.
  • Apparently, The Doctor (his 11th incarnation anyway) has become very interested in Aladdin's fez and has been trying to get one for his own. The other gods have tried to warn Aladdin just what he'd be getting into if he agreed to the Doctor's terms.
  • "All this for a loaf of bread?"

    Mr. Fox 
Mr. Fox, God of Roguish Poachers (F.F. Fox, Foxy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrfox.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His tail
  • Theme Music: Let Her Dance
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Cunning Like a Fox, Roguish Poacher, Civilized Animal, Lovable Rogue, Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Domains: Foxes, Family, Thievery, Trickery
  • Heralds: Mrs. Fox, Ash Fox, Kristofferson Silverfox, Kylie Sven Opossum, Clive Badger
  • High Priest: William Smith
  • Allies: Nick Wilde, Fox McCloud, Tails
  • Rival: Foghorn Leghorn
  • Enemies: Eustace Bagge, Ratigan, Cuccos
  • Opposes: Dr. Zomboss, Twitch
  • Disliked by: The Farmer
  • A fox that's every bit as wily as one would think, Mr. Fox also has a family he tends to, even if that family isn't quite normal. His main job is to try and steal food from three cruel farmers, but he has a fairly good reason for doing so: to feed his family. Those farmers wouldn't go down without a fight, but Fox and his companions were able to outwit them and give his family the food they need regardless of the circumstances.
  • His temple on the surface looks like a fairly scenic landscape, but his home is actually underground. While this meant that it would be easier for anyone trying to stop him to know where he's at, he does have a couple of backup locations underground. He does have these locations far from the paths of deities who have expertise in tunneling.
  • Even though he is aware that there is a House of Food along with the fact that he could just visit that place legally with to get his family meals, he seems to prefer stealing food from amoral people, especially if said people are farmers. It may also have to do with Mr. Fox being wary of ending up with some weird and highly questionable food if he does attempt to steal stuff from that place.
  • It didn't take that long for him to find some poultry in the Pantheon, but trying to get close to them proved to be more challenging than he thought. Foghorn Leghorn was far more crafty than any kind of chicken Mr. Fox had stolen. That and Foghorn is greatly offended by Mr. Fox's primary occupation, regardless of the fox's reasons. If Foghorn is tasked with guarding chickens then chances are he'll be in conflict with Mr. Fox whenever the latter sets foot.
    • Of course, that is nothing compared to what happened when Mr. Fox got his paws on some Cuccos. At first, it didn't seem too difficult to reach them, but by the time he stole six of the Cuccos, they retaliated and Mr. Fox was forced to retreat from a bunch chickens pecking away at him. To add insult to injury, Foghorn was watching the whole debacle from afar and made jokes at the fox's expense. Mr. Fox really wasn't happy with what unfolded.
  • He doesn't like Ratigan all that much due to encountering a rat that worked for the farmers that Mr. Fox was trying to steal. Given that Ratigan has quite a bit of brains, the fox is worried about what would happen if Ratigan targeted him and his family, though Ratigan doesn't care a whole lot to even notice him.
    • Although he doesn't have the same level of animosity towards Twitch as the Plague Rat isn't really malicious, it's clear that Mr. Fox not only distrusts him, but he can't help but feel that things would be very different if Twitch were really a bad guy. Other issues include just how rancid of a lifestyle Twitch has and why anyone would even like moldy cheese.
  • Dr. Zomboss heard about Mr. Fox's exploits in stealing livestock and figured that it would be of use to him to try and steal some edible plants since they are a thorn on Zomboss' side. Mr. Fox wasn't interested in the offer since he would rather steal things on his own accord rather than do so for someone else. Zomboss' goals are also something that bothers Mr. Fox, if only slightly.
  • No attempts came out of him thus far to try and break in to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. At the very least he might be aware of blueprints of the place, but considering how much more advanced the chocolate factory is compared to a simple farm, he hasn't tried to break in for the time being.
  • There were a few farmers present that it led to Mr. Fox deciding to pay them a visit. He found Eustace Bagge to be very mean-spirited, though not on the same level as Boggis, Bunce, and Bean. While Mr. Fox doesn't really hold a grudge against The Farmer, it was clear that the latter isn't happy about having his hard work taken away from him by some crafty animals. Lucky for The Farmer that Mr. Fox doesn't visit him that much since the initial encounter and that Eustace tends to get in some trouble with the Fox on occasion.
  • While he was able to meet a few other foxes, most of them obviously weren't the same as him in terms of their specialty. It didn't stop him from being friendly towards them and respecting how they care about their friends. He is very friendly with Nick Wilde given that they are both wily foxes and used their wits to help them get past problems. Nick's partner Judy is a bit more mixed on Mr. Fox as while she understands that he has a family to support and that Mr. Fox's adversaries are not very kind, she believes that are ways to support family's without getting into trouble.
  • It's not something that comes up frequently, but he did have a job as a newspaper columnist before he returned to being a thief. When it comes to Pantheon life, Mr. Fox is more of a guest columnist for some newspaper and seems to prefer being a thief whenever he isn't asked to write a column.
  • Telling him to stop swiping is not going to get him to stop swiping. At the very least, he'll probably just stop his planned heist at the moment, but he'll likely have a Plan B to try and get that heist completed for good when he gets back to it. Earplugs may or may not be a part of Plan B, but Mr. Fox does have a hunch that his desired items are going to be better protected next time he tries.
  • As compelling as it sounds, he has no plans to steal anything with a high material value such as jewels. That's better left to more skilled thieves. Not that Mr. Fox isn't skilled, but trying to do such a thing is very much beyond what he can do normally. That and food & drink are more necessary to keep him and his family sustained.

    Nigel West Dickens 
Nigel West Dickens, Snake Oil Salesman to the Gods (N.W.D., Mr. West Dickens)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nwd.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A bottle of his “elixir”
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Snake Oil Salesman, Large Ham, Lovable Coward, For Science!, Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass
  • Domains: Commerce, Cons, Quackery, Showmanship
  • Followers: Dr. Terminus
  • Allies: CMOT Dibbler, Moe Syzlak, the House of Magic and Sorcery and the Undead, surprisingly
  • Enemies: Too many to count but mostly are “unhappy customers”; the House of Dragons; House of Reptiles; all snake-based gods specially Voldemort, Orochimaru, and all the Gorgons and Lamias
  • Tolerated by: John Marston, all Zombie Apocalypse survivors, Poison Ivy
  • Outside the Main Gates, a crowd had formed around a well-worn stagecoach. At the front was an elderly man dressed in suit and top hat with a table of bottles filled with a strange liquid. The man began:
    “Friends! Hard working souls of ...Trope Pantheon! Gather round, gather round. Do you suffer from Rheumatism? Lumbago? Acute, chronic, sciatic, neurologic, or inflammatory pain? Well, I represent the only company that makes the GENUINE ARTICLE…”
    • At that second, Commander Vimes and several officers arrived and recognized Nigel West Dickens. Before he could be thrown away or sent to the Fallen, John Marston appeared and W.D. immediately pleaded for John’s assistance. Shaking his head and knowing he’ll regret it, John immediately vouched for his help in the past, although W.D. disliked how he referred to him as a “harmless old charlatan”. Still, that was enough to allow Nigel entry as the spot for Snake Oil Salesman had yet to be taken.
  • Nigel travels around the Pantheon with his personal horse-drawn stagecoach to wherever he needs to go to peddle his elixir. Naturally, he has been run out of several houses countless times when his elixir doesn't work as it supposed to.
  • Even with all his exaggerations of everything it can do, Nigel's elixir does apparently have quite a niche support.
    • The House of Magic has found the elixir to be an excellent mana restorer, as John Marston begrudgingly admitted that his Dead Eye energy is refilled instantly after consuming it. Of course, its taste leaves something to be desired, but then again which mana-restoring potion ever had a sweet taste? Whenever W.D. passes through the House of Magic, his entire stock gets sold out quickly.
    • To the undead apparently, the elixir is like catnip. There is no zombie, undead and living dead deity in the Pantheon that can resist its addictive aroma and flavor. He has been warned several times by the House of Justice from selling his elixir to addicted undead deities, but that doesn't stop him from selling the elixir through Moe and Quark to sell as drinks in their establishments. Naturally, this has caused undead deities to frequent these bars just for a taste of the elixir, and the Chosen Undead has taken to mixing a few drops of it in his Estus Flasks for an extra kick.
    • A new niche market has also been formed around deities that have survived zombie apocalypses. After learning that the undead are drawn to the elixir, many of these enterprising gods have placed explosives with these bottles. These make excellent zombie traps as any horde that approaches the bottles are blown to pieces after setting off the explosives.
  • As a man of science, he tends to visit the House of Knowledge and learn of any new ingredients he could experiment in making newer kinds of elixirs.
  • After the debacle with dragons, he went back to his usual experiments with plants. Naturally upon learning how he experiments with them, Poison Ivy was ready to teach him a lesson. She rescinded, however, after observing how he treats the plants in his experiments with care. She let him go with a warning that should he ever truly harm any plant, she has a giant venus fly trap with his name on it.
  • Even though many deities don't want to know what sort of ingredients are in his elixirs, one certified ingredient is, naturally, snake oil. Where W.D. gets the snakes to use in his elixirs is uncertain, but he is not welcome at all in the Hall of Reptiles and several snake-based gods have given him a "strike on sight" order if he's ever near them. To be more specific, anyone who would make allies of Voldemort, Orochimaru, Serperior, Medusa, Rider, Alice and Miia against you is a feat in itself.

Richter Berg, God of Obscuring Criminal Activity From One's Family (The Rat)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hmrichter.png
Richter unmasked 
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The Richter mask alongside a silenced Uzi.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Portfolio: Hitman with a Heart, Anti-Villain, Forced into Evil, The Caretaker with an absent father, Nothing Personal, Spared by Jacket, Escaping a Prison Riot, Fleeing to Hawaii with his mother, Perishing from nuclear holocaust, Choosing not to fight it
  • Domains: Killing, Caretaking, Loners
  • Herald: Rosa Berg, his mother
  • Visited by: Richard
  • On Good Terms with: Gunvolt, The Matrons of Mercy and many of the House of Health and Diseases' Healers and Physicians, James Earl Cash, Jimmy (borders on Odd Friendship with the two)
  • Enemies: 50 Blessings, The Son and other Russian Mobsters such as Dimitri Rascalov, Lionel Starkweather, Nicky Cavella
  • Respected by: The House of Mothers
  • Opposed by/Opposes: The House of Justice
  • Avoids: Cioccolata, Amanda Waller, The Warden
  • Among the masked assassins that went after the Russian Mafia, Richter is certainly one of the more stranger ones compared to the rest. Initially presented as an unpleasant asshole that filled in the role for Beard in Jacket's coma-induced dream, the reality couldn't be anymore different. While responsible for the murder of Jacket's girlfriend and putting him in a coma in the first place Richter only did so through being threatened after dismissing them as a prank. His car being torched and the not-so-subtle implications his sickly ill mother would be next said otherwise. He doesn't take pleasure in what he does, unlike his fellow assailants who either had a grudge against the Russians and/or some degree of a thrill for violence.
    • Following his arrest, Jacket would later come back for revenge though opted to just shake him down for information on what was going on. He'd later survive a massive Prison Riot and escape to Hawaii and once again trade information, this time in exchange for a plane ticket to have his mother join him. All seemed well... until news of assassination done on both the presidents of United States and Russia hit the scene. Another war would begin and Richter would meet his demise by nuclear blast. Despite the unfortunate circumstances he took the end quite well and was even comforted by Richard.
  • Formerly a follower of Gunvolt, he managed to get a title of his own through the kid assassins help and is genuinely thankful for being able to once again live out his days with his mother. Richter would be genuinely surprised that Jacket had also made his stay in the Pantheon though the latter doesn't see any use in going after him after sparing his life back at the precinct. Of course, being the Pantheon, he's note completely out of the woodwork yet. While it isn't as strong as the one he holds against rooster mask-wearing killer, The Son still holds a grudge against him for being one of the operators that hit the Mob hard and the news quickly spread among other such mobsters such as Dimitri Rascalov. Luckily for him, this only applies to those of The Mafiya — other gangsters and criminals have no reason to go after him and even so there are bigger threats to worry about.
    • As far as his Houses go, he's not too fond of having a place in the House of Other Criminals and has done everything in his power to disassociate with such a place. That being said, he finds the House of Family Dysfunctions to quite terrible too. Things there are far too rowdy he's always worried such frequent quarrels might disturb him and his mother.
  • Described as a jobless loner by Rosa Berg, presumably throughout his life, and is genuinely worried that she is holding him back. The fact that Richter is described as being like his father plus the only person around to take care of her is a quite telling his situation. Per her request he started to pick up a more honest life to support the both of them in the Pantheon though he still takes time to look after her, and can often be found picking up medicine within the Health and Diseases. As you can imagine he has a good relationship with the nicer doctors there who also take time to look after his mother's well-being. Because of this, he is both pitied and also respected by those throughout the House of Family with special mention going to those in the House of Mothers.
    • If there's one doctor he does not wish to even have the pleasure of meeting it would be the man known only as Cioccolata. His depravity is seemingly without bounds as he dabbled in malpractice as commonly as he breathed. Before "working" in the medical field he also abused the elderly under the thin veil of looking after them either through drugs or gaslighting them into killing themselves. And that's just setting aside his life as a gangster with his attempted mass murder when tasked with dealing with a select group of traitors in the city of Rome. Richter avoids him whenever possible knowing that'd he most certainly die and on the chance he was around it would probably be no use in facing him considering how Green Day works. That's fine, however. A certain someone told Richter leaving the world isn't as scary as it sounds just before being atomized by nuclear fire, and the Pantheon says Death Is Cheap, anyways.
  • Despite holding little, if at all, similarities besides having an occupation that involved killing on top of being a bit of a loner Richter managed to be antiquated with the likes of James Earl Cash and Jimmy. For Cash perhaps its the fact that, despite being far from being a saint, he did genuinely care about his family and worked toward ensuring their safety even if it ended up being all for naught thanks to Lionel Starkweather going back on the deal made. Richter admits if anything happened to his mother even as did what the calls asked for anyways he probably wouldn't have reacted well either.
    • As for Jimmy it may be because they were both quite deep in facing down criminals, even if their reasons for doing so were quite different. Jimmy even offered to help Richter out with his problems regarding the Russian Mob considering his issues regarding all sorts of criminals to which Richter appreciates. Unbeknownst to both men they also share being betrayed by their employers as remaining loose ends as the people behind the phone line tried to have Richter killed through causing some chaos though the Rat ended up scurrying off with his life despite their efforts.
  • To this day he genuinely regrets killing Jacket's girlfriend, even figuring that he would of done him in for it during his Roaring Rampage of Revenge. He once attempted to apologize for it but he ended up doing do in front of Richard, who quickly clarified the mistake. It is for that reason he has a place in the Hall of Regret and Shame although you wouldn't often find him here.
  • Having not learned anything from an incident involving the Fans, Nicky Cavella got a bunch of his men to go take out his mother and film him desecrating his corpse to deal with Richter and to make a name for himself. Unfortunately for no-so-saintly Nick he and his goons ended up being jumped by Richter when he came out of hiding with his suppressed Uzi. While the rest of his men died, Nicholas managed to crawl out of the ambush alive. A shame, then, that he was found by Jimmy who proceeded to give the guy his just desserts.
  • Being complicit in 50 Blessings' killings hasn't really endeared him to the House of Justice. Given the circumstances, however, its not nearly to the same extent as with Jacket or other Hotline Miami protagonists for that matter. Few, if any, are also willing to hold his escape from prison against him considering he was nearly disposed of by Richter's former employers through not only a prison boss but also an entire Prison Riot through the guards mowing down everyone in their way and his fellow inmates after he disguises himself as a guard to ensure his escape. On his end he's generally neutral towards them though he does hold a bit of distaste towards Amanda Waller as she is known to recruit known criminals to do some dangerous missions. The same goes for an eccentric man known only as the Warden as whose prison is notorious for the amount of controlled chaos throughout.
  • "Good times never last."
