  • Many deities in the Pantheon can say that they look similar to their ancestors, taking parts from their parents and grand parents. For a few, they may look almost identical. For Edmund Blackadder, his ancestors are exactly alike. To the point that his avatar can play the same person over the centuries with no problem at all. No one can explain how such a character can look exactly the same or why they are all have the name, but it is an aspect Blackadder is proud of. Even if not everyone approves of his antics.
    • What makes things even more confusing is the fact that one may get a different version of Blackadder whenever one goes to his temple. No one knows how it works or whether he is one of multiple people or a single person. Regardless, the Blackaddern lineage has been a fountain of information of the past.
    • As always, his sidekick Baldrick is never that far from his side. Baldrick also comes from a long lineage of people throughout history and all of them were by Blackadder's side. Baldrick is often the one with the cunning plan. While Blackadder is usually skeptical of them, they are always more successful. Of course Blackadder doesn't always benefit from them. In fact, a few of Baldrick's success has come at Blackadder's expense. Still, Blackadder decided to keep him around.
  • There are some who believe that Blackadder is related to Mr. Bean. Whether that is true or not doesn't seem to matter to the two as they are happy to stick around with each other to say the least.
  • Queen Elizabeth the First isn't particularly fond of seeing Lord Edmund Blackadder make a return to the Pantheon. She still holds the lord responsible for being depicted as a spoiled, stingy woman on her rule. She claims that a lot of those traits were rubbed onto her by her half-sister Mary Queen of Scots. Not to mention that his actions led to her death in end.
  • Shakespeare had been acquainted with the man long before the two had ascended... and it wasn't a pleasant meeting. Lord Blackadder of 1999 fame is one of many people around the world who tire of having to go through Elizabethan English every time he read a play by him. After stating his characters wore stupid tights, he promptly gave the poet a beating. It did come with a silver lining: for just a small moment of time, people thought he had invented the ballpoint pen. While Blackadder did remedy this by going back in time, he placed a restraining order on the lord.
  • When it comes to examples of the British making fun of themselves, Napoleon Bonaparte has plenty of options to go with. Among these was when the modern Blackadder clumsily handed him the Battle of Waterloo and with it all of Europe. It didn't last, but Napoleon appreciates that he will have at least that moment of time to savor.
  • Claims that one of his earliest ancestors was the one who built Stonehenge. When asked by said ancestor, the druid replied that his boss wanted to make a playground. Even he thought that the design was ludicrous.
  • Captain Haddock had always wondered why Sir Francis Haddock looked almost exactly like him, down to his proficiency for swearing. Blackadder was there to explain all the details for him. Even then, Haddock remains confused as to which member of the Haddock family he talks to. It matters a lot to him, as his interactions with them range from bellowing laughter to vicious fisticuffs.
  • On the other hand, Obelix hasn't thought much about why every member of his family is big-boned with red hair. He is one of the few Frenchmen with an amiable relationship with Blackadder.
  • Worf takes great pride in his lineage of the House of Martok. So it was a pleasant surprise to him that his grandfather looked just like him. Blackadder provided a picture of the man as a way of gratitude. He also hoped that Worf would provide a bit of muscle in case anyone would try to kill him.
  • Xena and Gabrielle hold a special spot in the Blackadder clergy. It is due to an episode with two of their descendants in WW2 Europe. The episode is said to have helped usher in a new genre of Fanfic set in the modern era by versions of the same character. Many of the faithful can attribute their existence to such works. Xena has shrugged off the praise, but Gabrielle is more muted; her daughter is a reminder that not all identical children end up being people you're proud of.
  • At the end of the day, the last known member of the Blackadder family got as much of a happy ending as he could have ever achieve... yet that earned him a visit from The Doctor. Using time travel for their own selfish benefit left a bitter taste on the Time Lord's mouth and he threatened to undo everything. There was a lot of back-and-forth between the two, but in the end the two agreed to let things be. Some speculated it may have been due to the team giving The Doctor a funny spoof during the down time.

  • Originally found wandering in the House of Vampires he quickly ascended to the god of Vampires that love their vampire son; or in his universe assistant, after the Main House discovered his history with his own assistant, the young Darren Shan.
    • For those that don't know a vampire's assistant is literally just that, a humannote  who assists a vampire in life. Said humans; and half-vampaneze, do this so that they can ultimately one day become a vampire themselves. During their time as a assistant the human will eventually be turned into a half-vampirenote ; a process that's done by having vampire blood pumped into them through their fingernailsnote , so long as the assistant still wishes to become a vampire. As a half-vampire they usually continue to serve as an assistant up until they become a full vampirenote  normally.
  • Vampires are not suppose to blood human children; though exceptions are made depending on the circumstances, this is because of how protective people have become of their children in the recent century.
    • Unfortunately this is something Larten is guilty of doing this, having blooded his first and only assistant Darren Shan. This fact nearly ended up costing Larten his life when he returned to Vampire Mountain alerting the Vampire Generals and Princes to what he's done. In the end they only spared him was when his assistant inadvertently gave the Vampire Princes' the idea of giving Darren a challengenote  for Larten's life, something Larten was unhappy about, but allowed his assistant too decide.
      • Despite the case of him turning a child into a half-vampire was ultimately dropped with his life being sparednote  many in the House of Justice believe that he got off too lightly and should receive a actual punishment. Thankfully though Nemesis was able to tell and reveal that he was under the influence of a more powerful being note , thus resolving the issue. The House of Justice though still keeps him under observation though, just in case.
  • Also, has a temple in the House of Vampires.
  • Never bring up his movie counterpart.
  • Fully supports Alucard's crusade to free the other vampires following Dracula and has even offered his assistance.
  • Is a little weirded out seeing Dracula in the pantheon, considering that he actually met Bram Stoker and may have helped inspire the creation of the character after Abraham interviewed him and the old Vampire Prince Paris.
  • Sometimes uses the name of his close cousin and adopted brother Vur Horston as a way to honor him after he was murdered.
    • The murder of Vur is also the very event that ultimately led him into becoming a vampire.
  • Doesn't like Arcueid Brunestud, sure she's friendly but the fact that she fed Shiki Tohno another vampire just to be nice disturbs him greatly.
    • It should be noted though that he has no problem with someone let alone humans eating a vampire; just ask The Guardians Of The Blood. The problem came from how it was done.
  • Because he used to work in a freak show with his preforming spider Madame Octa before his death and ascension he can sometimes be seen working with gods related to showmanship like William Shakespeare, Oscar Diggs, Zatanna Zatara and Kaito Kuroba
  • Befriended Arachne, Muffet and Rachnera with stories of his preforming spider Madame Octa. They were; however, disappointed to find out that he no longer has her in his possession since his assistant Darren released her in Vampire Mountain. They were disturbed though to find out that he get Madame Octa to preform by controlling her.
    • Though its unknown if his ability to control spiders will work on sentient ones, it still gained him a surprising amount of fear from Ungoliant and oddly enough Pennywise for some reason.
  • Is hardly ever seen in his temple preferring to travel like the rest of his clan. Naturally he ended up befriending Mercury, Hecate and Yukiko Amagi because of this.
  • Like all vampires from his universe his blood is toxic, must eat normal food; along with human blood to survivenote , are forbidden to use projectile and explosive weaponry. They can also survive in sun light at least for several hours with little discomfort. Wolves, bats and rats also seem to naturally like them while catsnote  and dogs seem to inherently hate them.
  • Befriended Queen Elsa when she heard that he discovered an ice palace. He's since corrected her, for though is was certainly palace like it was actually a frozen tomb for the legendary Vampire General Perta Vin-Grahl. It did however have plenty of ice and crystal sculptures.
  • Being a member of a proud warrior race Larten naturally befriended several other great and honorable warriors such as Conan, Xena, Red Sonja, James Howlett/Wolverine, Aragorn and surprisingly Sora.
  • Nazis once tried to make a alliance with the vampires of his universe, it ended Nazis trying to capture vampires.
  • Fully agrees with Albus Dumbledore when it comes to his belief of doing things for the greater good.
    • Upon meeting Dumbledore he learned of Harry Potter, who earned his respect and pity for Larten was also part of a rather grim prophecy. He also learned of Voldemort and quickly became his enemy both for his actions and due to his similarities with Nazis.
  • Not even a minute when he arrived in the House of Vampires was he unexpectedly barreled over by an orange pegasus filly on her scooter and then watched as the filly (and her close friends) leapt toward the temple next to his, belonging to a pair of vampire wrestlers. Curiosity came to him as he saw the Crusaders take part in an epic LARP battle with those vampires before it ended with the group laughing. He then introduced himself to the group, and the ponies introduced themselves as The Cutie Mark Crusaders who asked if Mr. Crepsley has met their good friends Mr. Gangrel and Miss Luna. Talks were made, stories were traded and Crepsley has now decided to entertain the ponies (or at least, teach them how to be good entertainers) which has made the ponies absolutely happy. When word got out to their older sisters, they could only groan at how the Crusaders have made friends with another vampire.
    • However, when it came to actually performing in a nightmareish circus, the Crusaders got cold feet. He soon realized that it was related to the last time the three were in a similar circus, it ended with a huge misunderstanding that caused the three to kill all of the circus performers in rage, particularly Apple Bloom blowing a hole in the Ringmaster's forehead (who had Gangrel's face, long story) before she broke down in butchering him. He's doing his best to ensure that the nightmares they had are gone (which has made the Equestrian Gods more trustworthy of him now).

    Kinzo Ushiromiya 
Kinzo Ushiromiya, God of Succession Crisis (Goldsmith)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kinzo_ps3_7932.png
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The one-winged eagle
  • Theme Songs: Rose, la divina tragedia ~Makyoku~
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Interesting Romantic Life, Pater Familicide, Conspicuous Consumption, Creating Weird Wills, Parental Incest, Abusive Parents.
  • Domains: Chance, Wealth, Legacy, Ambition, Evil, Depravity
  • Allies: Deathwing, Scanty and Kneesocks, Slaanesh, Lady Tremaine, Ghestis, Sophia Lamb, Relius Clover, Scar.
  • Enemies: Beatrice the Golden Witch, Sophitia, Batman, Jason Todd, Sakura Matou, Bryan Mills, Asura, Kiritsugu Emiya, Alexstraza, Ysera, Yu
  • Earned his title upon the discovery that he is the root cause of the strife amongst the Ushiromiya clan, such as the chain of hate, Eva's dickish tendencies, and Beatrice III's tragic self loathing.
  • Doesn't actually interact much with the rest of the Gods, as he spends most of his time shut up in his room, practicing black magic and ranting about someone he calls "Beatrice".
  • The words OH DESIRE seem to have a weird effect on those who hear it, creating a strange compulsion to plant images of Kinzo's face upon random pictures. The effect is much more powerful when the song associated with it plays. Trolls of various alignments have used this to great comedic effect. As such, it's one of the legendary Seven Mysteries of the Pantheon.
  • Then came the dark reveals of his true nature, which became a game changer in those interactions.
    • When he found out about it, Batman gathered the Bat Family (Nightwing, Tim Drake) and went to town on Kinzo, topping it off with an Arkham Knight style interrogation involving the treads of the Bat Tank. Jason Todd got involved afterwards and pummeled him with a crow bar.
    • Deathwing, Slaanesh, Griffith, and the Scanty sisters were pleased with Kinzo's depravity and became quick allies.
    • Being loving fathers, Bryan Mills and Kiritsugu Emiya decided to Pay Evil unto Evil for the way he abused his children. Needless to say, the combination of CIA style interrogations and a "lap shot" from Calico did not bode well.
