Pantheon / Otherness Abominations

Go To

This particular sub-house is quite difficult to describe due to having to fit the inhuman needs of its residents, it often drives mortals insane. It serves as something of a Prison Dimension for the more evil residents (which connects it to the Phantom Zone and House of Justice) while more good aligned residents are given more freedom.

  • The Old Gods were creatures who come from the void with the mission of corrupting the world of Azeroth, tampering with the creations of the Titans in the process, which eventually sparked a war that left 3 of them imprisoned and one dead. Since then, their corruption spread to whenever they reside and they are still planning to destroy everything for the sake of Chaos. These creatures were found in the Pantheon once and it took the entire effort of the GUAG aided by the four dragon aspects (Including Malygos) to imprison them. It is generally advised to avoid visiting them as no one returns fully well from an Old God's corruption.
  • After hearing about these ungodly abominations, The Hunter decided to end their lifes for good. However, when they were about to enter the Gods temple, they were immediately confronted by Deathwing and they were forced to retreat as he wasn't a match for the Death Aspect. They had never anticipated that the dragon was one of the biggest pawns of the Old Gods.
    • Besides Deathwing, Ragnaros also decided to serve his old masters once again which alarmed many people in the Pantheon, since they weren't aware the elemental lord used to serve the old Gods. This has made the GUAG to gather enough forces just in case these creatures decided to strike the Pantheon again.
    • When Cho'Gall heard that the Old Gods had acended, he was very quick to start visiting their temples, as he is already too corrupt to suffer any ill affects. He has been noted to favor C'Thun, though he makes an effort to visit each temple once a day.
  • It is forbidden in its ENTIRETY to ever try to kill any of the Old Gods, as killing them would leave nasty consequences in the pantheon AND given the nature of the Pantheon regarding Death, then the Old Ones could potentially regain all the power thay lost after their resurrection
  • They are also reffered as "The Elder Gods" which caught Raiden by surprise, since he didn't expect to find his masters ascended. When he found out who these Elder Gods were about, he was horrified of the damage they had caused and refuses to compare these Eldritch creatures with his Homeworld's Elder Gods.
  • Their objective is simple, corrupt every place of the pantheon and cause unending chaos forever. That's the reason why the are always compered to the Chaos Gods as their objectives are similar and plus, they are also Eldritch Abominations. It was no surprise when both camps joined forces to put in motion a plan to corrupt the entire pantheon.
  • The elder gods have also taken interest in learning about their counterparts of Yharnam, The Great Old Ones. While both groups communicate without issue at all, the latter have been hesitant to collaborate with the Old Gods. Of course they don't mind at the moment, but later down the road the Old Gods have considered Brainwashing these creatures into submission when the time comes
  • They found common ground with the Elder Dragons of Tyria, since they share the same abilities to warp the surrounding they inhabit and also feed on magic. However, none of the dragons are interesting on serving the Elder Gods but there is still a rivalry going with both groups.
  • They also seems to get along with fellow lovecraftian deities given their similarities. Remarkably, C'Thun seems to get along with Cthulhu while Yogg-Saron has formed an alliance with Yogg-sothoth for very particular reasons.
  • Rumors say that their influence has been lingering around a peaceful tavern where various people from Azeroth gather to relax. While their plans are not very clear at the moment, they have already "corrupted" many of its frequent visitors, much to the shock of various deities.
    • However, many breath a sigh of relieve when they discovered that when the Old Gods visit this place, they're the ones that are under the control of the heroes that reside there: Jaina, Malfurion, Alleria, Uther, Valeera, Garrosh, Gul'dan, Rexxar and Thrall.
  • Discord once tried to befriend them what with them being gods of chaos. But was horrified when he found out that their brand of chaos was endless death and destruction rather than the odd and wacky and thus became enemies. Solidified by Yogg-Saron calling Discord's brand of chaos childish and amateurish.
  • Exclusive to C'Thun:
    • Ever since his defeat against the Titans, C'thun has been kept imprisoned beneath Azeroth in one of their research facilities, in what would later become the continent of Kalimdor. He did return once but eventually he was defeated by a group of adventurers, which is no easy task for any mortal. His eventual ascension would allow him to get in motion a plan to drive to insanity many potentially useful gods to use as Pawns.
    • His appearance mostly consist as a giant eye surrounded by many tentacles. This made him be approached by another abomination by the name of Monoculus, which happen to be a floating eye that misteriously seems to speak a similar language that C'thun understands.
      • Another deity he has allied himself with was Sauron, given that his Eye form is very similar to C'thun's default form
    • Given that he had a race of insectoid creatures as pawns, whose names are the aquir and Quiraji, The old one was able to make an alliance with Queen Sectonia, given that she has similarities with said creatures that used to serve him. This didn't sit well on kirby but he is careful to approach this alliance since the Elder Gods are not creatures that he thinks he could take by himself.
    • Has a devoted cult by the name of The Twilight Hammer that are really loyal to him and his brethen (but most importantly, him). This in turn made the House of FAITH very careful if it happened that some members were already among them
    • A special rule he made for becoming a disciple of him is to shout his name three times.
    "C'Thun, C'THUN, C'THUN!"
  • Exclusive to Yogg-Saron:
    • Yogg-Saron is known as one of the most malevolent of the Elder Gods. He was imprisoned in the depths of the city of Ulduar and the titans assigned specific watchers to keep an eye on him. While his situation in the Pantheon is no different to how it was in Azeroth, it should be said that his powers are able to drive almost anyone dumb enough to get near him insane. As a matter of fact, all of his guardians ended up succumbing to him.
    • There has been rumors that whispers can be heard near his temple, which is not a good sign mind you, as he could easily Mind Rape anyone close to his range and make you his slave. It is possible to fight his influence but is not advised in the slightest.
    • It is said that Yogg-Saron is very closely related to the creature known as Hastur, since they both share the moniker of "The Unspeakable one". While Hastur isn't found in the Pantheon at the moment, Old Man Henderson has tried to take down Yogg-Saron thinking he is a possible reincarnation of Hastur. So far Henderson has been unsuccessful, since he cannot get past Deathwing and is getting increasingly annoyed by the black dragon.
    • Yogg-Saron is also known as "The God of Death" given how he feeds of the essence of the Undead and Death itself. That's why the House of Life and Death struggles to fend him off in hopes that he doesn't corrupt the house or else the nature of Death in the Pantheon could really be corrupted by his mere presence. Undead gods also stay far away of the Elder God's reach.
      • However, he found himself a fierce opposition from other Grim Reapers just to keep the natural balance of death intact. Others, like Death the Horseman, are only interested in observing the creature's powers.
    • He also has control over the N'raqui, also known as the Faceless Ones, humanoid creatures that resemble squids. They have been under conflict with the Scourge given that they are closely located to the old city of Azjol'Nerub, where the nerubians hail from. Yogg-Saron has only limited himself to taunt the Lich King of his eventual fate and said that his forces will eventually succumb to his corruption.
    Yogg-Saron: No King rules forever...
    • Has an incredible control over magic, so powerful he might turn a recently cast spell into anything he desires. However, his insanity prevents him from focusing on a single target, preferring to rain destruction all around him, even to the point of harming himself.
    • "Bow down before the God of Death".
  • Exclusive to N'Zoth:
    • N'Zoth happens to be the entity behind Neltharion's corruption and eventual descent into madness, which later transformed him into Deathwing. Rumors say that he inhabits the depths of the Oceans of Azeroth.
    • N'Zoths whole motivations, while similar to the rest of the Elder Ones, are a complete mystery to everyone. He happens to be one of the few ascendants that no one has ever saw in person. That doesn't mean that his presence is not there and it is said that he can be heard whispering in either the House of Water & Moisture or Aquatic Life but no one is certain if he is there.
      • Until an expedition led by Aquaman was made in order to investigate said whispers. To his horror, what they found was the real N'Zoth, who was about to transform both houses into his domain. A collective effort from all the members of said houses plus assistance from the GUAG was enough to force The Corruptor to flee, but he has since relocated with his fellow Old Gods.
    • He doesn't get particularly well with his brethren. Nobody knows why but he has waged war with both C'Thun and Yogg-Saron and their relationship has not improved in the slightest. The most common explanation is that their twisted minds make them confront each other just for their depraved entertainment.
    • N'Zoth was one of the principal sources of corruption in the Emerald Dream and many fear that he may be able to dwell into the dreams of people too. That's why he enlisted various entities related to Nightmare, such as Atropos or Freddy Krueger.
    • He once tried to Mind Rape Darkrai into submission since he saw potential in his nightmare-inducing abilities. However, Ysera was quick to intercept before he took control and saved Darkrai from his clutches.
      • As a result, Ysera has created a group specialized in countering N'Zoth and his Dream Corruption. So far, Brightwing, Darkrai, NiGHTS and Soldier #25954 have joined her cause. Malfurion and Tyrande have also considered lending a hand in case the Emerald Dream is in danger.
    • "I taste the essence of your soul".
  • Exclusive to Y'Shaarj:
    • Y'Shaarj was the most powerful and wicked of the Old Gods and thus, the Titans were forced to put an end to his life. With the last of his forces, he was able to create the Sha, a race of creatures that represent the bad emotions of the world and eternally cursed Pandaria with their presence.
    • Given that Y'Shaarj was Killed Off for Real and his essence disappeared entirely from his homeworld, his presence in the pantheon is difficult to pinpoint, since he seems to be torn in and out of the space and time of these lands. It still doesn't negate his powers and as such he has employed the mantids to figure a way to make him materialize in this plane.
      • Luckily for him (and unfortunately for the rest of the pantheon), his remains were able to be restored. Nobody is sure how he was able to be revived since the House of Life and Death made themselves sure to not let him return to the mortal plane. It's theorized that Nefarian is behind his revival, given the Dragon's own mysterious revival as well.
    • As stated earlier, he is in control of the mantids, a race of insectoid creatures that inhabit Pandaria and have been in constant war with the local Pandaren. However, there seems to be one particular Mantid that refuses to serve him and that would be Scyther. He has been trying to control the Pokemon with little results so far.
    • Has kind of a strained relationship with Garrosh Hellscream, given that he is responsible for his death after the orc's defeat in Orgrimmar. However, he has offered him an alliance in case he wants to taste the power of Y'Shaarj once more.
    • The Emotions are horrified that Y'Shaarj basically created the Sha, an Evil Counterpart of them after his demise. He, however, does not care about their opinion and has an interest in corrupting the emotions to do his bidding, which could have catastrophic results.
    • There is also a Hidden group of Sha that he personally released on the internet. The infection was so great that many pages had fallen pray to it and not even this is safe from... {◕ ◡ ◕}
    • "Gorge your hatred, embrace your rage"
  • They are also present in the House of Travel

Cthulhu, Old One of Encounters With Eldritch Beings and He Who Waits For The Stars To Be Right (The Great Dreamer, The Sleeper of R'lyeh, Khlul'hloo, Kulullu, Icthulhu)

    Cyth V'sug 
Cyth V'sug, Demon God of Botanical Abominations (The Prince of the Blasted Heath)
An alternate depiction of Cyth V'sug 
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: A spiraling tentacle covered in mold.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Boomerang Bigot, Demon Lords and Archdevils, Eldritch Abomination, Festering Fungus, Plaguemaster, Poisonous Person
  • Domains: Chaos, Corruption, Demons, Evil, Plants, Rot.
  • Allies (sort of): Mordremoth, Teridax, the Hag
  • Followers: The Mi-Go, mu spores.
  • Rivals/Conflicting Opinion: Nurgle.
  • Enemies: Abadar, Erastil, Captain Planet, Treebeard, Trevenant, Swamp Thing, Viridi, the majority of the House of Nature Preservers, most members of the House of Demons
  • Cyth V'sug's realm is a stretch of tangled, dripping jungle located in the dark heartwoods of the House of Plants. Here, the trees are weighed down with fungus and sickly yet tenacious parasitic vines, the air is thick with spores best not breathed in and the polluted ground is covered by colorful toxic mushrooms and weedy plants either thorny, carnivorous, more poisonous than the worst poison ivy or all at once. The inhabitants are as pleasant as the flora, consisting of intelligent Man Eating Plants, shambling mounds of living compost, fungal Parasite Zombies, mandrakes that burst from the soil to ambush travelers, and the like. In the middle of it all sits Cyth V'sug's temple. Called the Jeharlu, this monolithic mass of fungus is a living thing in its own right, one that is constantly extending feelers and tendrils to take root in other worlds or realms of the Pantheon to try to infect them and draw them into itself. Ensuring that the tendrils are consistently cut back, and rooted out when they do take hold, is a job that requires the constant attentions of a dedicated division of minor godlings and divine servants and industrial quantities of herbicides.
  • Cyth V'sug is deeply detested by all Law- and Good-aligned deities from his part of the multiverse, and he despises them right back. This goes double for the Lawful Good and Lawful Neutral deities Erastil and Abadar, who in turn were deeply chagrined at seeing the demon lord join them in the Pantheon.
  • Due to his unending hatred for demons and his wish to scour the multiverse of their kind (despite he himself being a demon), he is on very poor terms with the House of Demons and its members, something somewhat mitigated by not all of them being demons in the way he understands the concept.
  • He has a complicated relationship with Nurgle. On the one hand, there is some kinship felt between them due to their shared roles as demonic gods of rot, disease, parasites and pollution, and each grudgingly admires the other's skill in crafting parasites and plagues. On the other, besides the usual difficulty in getting chaotic entities to work together, there is also the issue that Nurgle reminds Cyth V'sug of the demons and daemons of his home corner of the multiverse, creatures he absolutely hates, as well as bitter territorial rivalry at the thought of another demon or god controlling something he feels should be his domain alone. On Nurgle's end of things, the jovial father of plagues finds the Prince of the Blasted Heath unpleasantly dour and grim.
  • Due to the way he corrupts natural ecosystems into twisted, diseased parodies of themselves when he doesn't consume them outright, Cyth V'sug is considered an enemy by most good-aligned deities of forests and nature, a feeling he wholeheartedly returns.
    • Captain Planet and his allies seek to prevent the destruction his feeding causes to natural ecosystems, while forest deities such as Treebeard, Trevenant and the Lorax detest the near-cancerous mockery they feel he makes of the natural cycles of feeding and growth.
    • Viridi also views him as a foe — she sees herself as a goddess of nature first and foremost, and the sort of botanical life that Cyth V'sug champions is anything but natural by any definition of the term. Swamp Thing likewise opposes him — as the leader of the Green, he doesn't want that abomination to infect his domain.
  • Commander Shepard, Link and Mario tend to find themselves uneasy (more so than most others, at least) around Cyth V'sug, as he reminds them of the Thorian, Diababa and Petey Piranha too much for their comfort.
  • On the other hand, he is rather fond of the sub-house of Diseases as a whole, as he has no particular grudge against most of its members and quite enjoys experimenting with the interesting maladies and pathogens he can obtain there.
  • He has managed to forge a tenuous form of collaboration with Makuta Teridax: as a biological scientist (one of his former duties as a Makuta) with significant experience with ecology-based domination — having, for instance, created the Morbuzakh, a city-sized sapient plant, as part of one of his plots — Teridax brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise for Cyth V'sug to draw from for his plots, and the treacherous Makuta likewise finds Cyth V'sug's experience with supernatural plagues and parasites to be a wonderful asset for future plans where bioweapons will be needed. Of course, Makuta fully plans to manipulate his erstwhile ally for his own benefit and cast him aside (or posses him, whichever suits) when he's done; Cyth V'sug, a veteran of eons of the Abyss' traitorous, backstabbing politics, expects nothing less, and intends to be the one to wield the knife when the time comes. For now, however, both gods find greater advantage in cooperation, and are aware that wanton backstabbing would make them very vulnerable to their myriad other foes, so they're willing to work together. For now...
  • He is also on reasonably good terms with the Hag, on the grounds of a shared alignment, nature as Botanical Abominations and interest in evil botany. They are both quite skilled at working with foul fungi, herbs and other flora for nefarious and corrupting purposes, and the things they could get up to by pooling their mutual expertise has a fair few gods very worried indeed.
  • Can also be found in Plants.

Dagon, God of Abominations Through Adaptation (The Dragon, The Old One, The Great One, The Knowledge Bringer, Dagon the Destroyer)

  • High Priest: The Entity
  • Followers: The Moonchild, Ego the Living Planet, Karkull
  • Allies: Mag'ladroth the Void Dragon, Grima, Cthulhu, Unalaq, Vaatu
  • Rivals: YHVH, other multiversal conquerors (The Dread Dormammu, Shuma-Gorath, Nicol Bolas, The Shadow Monster), Yuri (Red Alert)
  • Enemies: Saint George, The Emperor of Mankind, all Ben 10 deities (especially Ben Tennyson and Vilgax), Saint Martha, Linkara, Makuta Teridax, Doctor Doom, Daenerys Targaryen, The Dovahkiin, much of the House of Dragons, Dr Gero, either Majin Buu, Elpizo, Shang Tsung, Anna Marie aka Rogue, The Wisps, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Lake Guardians, Zelenin
  • In times past, a great and terrible dragon faced off against Saint George. The legend states he slayed the dragon, but in the multiverse of Ben 10 the dragon is something worse; an octopoid Eldritch Abomination who has taken over a hundred universes, and who was merely sealed with his heart removed. Venerated by the Esoterica, Dagon sought to dominate the Earth and its universe. He was a powerful foe for Ben Tennyson and friends, only to have his power and self usurped by his supposed servant Vilgax, who was eventually defeated once again by Ben.
  • Dagon is not the only example of St George's dragon being so much worse; that'd be the Void Dragon, Mag'ladroth. He was immediately interested in their parallels and was intrigued by it possibly being the Machine God, as it reminds Dagon of how he poses as a savior to the Esoterica. The two have decided to share power for now, considering it better than fighting.
  • Dagon is seen with contempt by most of the House of Dragons, being an invasive Eldritch Abomination who once took the form of a dragon. Not that he cares what they think, other than being annoyed at the Dovahkiin's continued attempts to slay him like other dragons. Grima is fine with him, though it's more an appreciation of his vision and wanting someone to consolidate his power.
  • Rests in the House of Abominations, interested in the variety of beings there while also being cautious on those more powerful than him. Dagon is confident in his own power, but not to the point of being blinded from potential or known threats. Due to being inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos, Dagon is affable enough with Cthulhu, another octopoid Eldritch Abomination.
  • He was surprised that Linkara put him on his hit list, however this comes from how he has also faced an Adaptational Abomination in the form of Dagon's high priest, the Entity. Dagon is intrigued by this, though would like to remind the reviewer that he does not suffer self-doubt and he can't pull a Talking the Monster to Death. Linkara's response?
  • Saint George was absolutely livid to learn that his Arch-Enemy had ascended to the pantheon, as was the God Emperor of Mankind. It's believed that the Emperor counts Saint George among his many past identities. The Esoterica's hope to increase contact with aliens, and their connection with him, further frustrates the xenophobic Imperium. It is worth noting that the Esoterica believe Dagon is a benevolent force, but ignorance can be as deadly as intentional maliciousness.
  • Dagon wasn't happy to learn that his old foe was in the pantheon either, and that he had ascended with Saint Martha. She's a dragonslayer as well, and even tamed the dragon known as the tarasque. He would like to remind her that he is far deadlier than her "pet", and nobody masters him. Martha pointed out Vilgax just to annoy him.
  • A Reality Warper, Dagon turned almost everyone on Earth into a member of the Esoterica. To spread his influence, he wants to establish his cult of the Flame Keeper's Circle in the pantheon, which has inevitably made him a roadblock to YHVH's own ambitions of being a Multiversal Conqueror. Dagon seeks control of Zelenin's will for mind controlling more servants. Unalaq, while a Dark Shepherd, was more accepting of Dagon as a means of achieving his own goals. As was Vaatu, though it's ultimately an alliance to fulfill their own ambitions and there is little trust between them.
  • Desires domination of as much of the multiverse as he can manage, and is not the only one with that ambition. On Dagon's mind are Dormammu, Shuma-Gorath and Nicol Bolas. While Dagon is outclassed by Gorath, he has more of a shot with the other two. He is rivals with the Shadow Monster as well, since the Mind Flayer has a desire to shape the world to its vision and desire.
  • Its minions are the Lucubra, eldritch in their own right. They can feed on the thoughts of humans, resulting in mind control. And yet these beings are insects to Dagon. As such, he sought to dominate Yuri in order to use his mind control devices and status to spread his own will before entering the world. However as Yuri only wishes to be supreme himself, he regards Dagon as competition and refuses to kneel.
  • Dagon is power incarnate, however that serves as an Achilles' Heel; Vilgax absorbed its power and thus itself. As such, Dagon steps on eggshells when it comes to any being with the power to absorb energy and power. Either Majin Buu have the opportunity to assimilate him as well. He is wary of Makuta Teridax and Doctor Doom as like Vilgax they have hijacked the power of greater beings.
  • Though he was possessed and his power stolen, do not expect Dagon to give any consideration to the Wisps. Far from it; he seeks their Hyper Go-on energy for the same reason as Dr Eggman-mass mind control. Worringly Dagon seeks to dominate the wills of the Lake Trio, as if they embody spirit by hijacking them he should be able to control the souls of those from the Pokemon universe.

    Dark Gaia 
Dark Gaia, God of Downplayed Cosmic Horrors (Perfect Dark Gaia)
Dark Gaia
Perfect Dark Gaia 
  • Greater God (ranges through Demigod and Quasdieties through it's split parts)
  • Symbol: A single pool of darkness.
  • Theme: Dark Gaia, Perfect Dark Gaia
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Weird Creatures, Splitting Into Different Monsters, Dark Is Evil, Lovecraft Lite, Eldritch Abominations, Demonic Possession, Eye Scream, Evil Versions of Good Beings, Complete Immortality, The Heartless
  • Domains: Darkness, Destruction, Night, Earth
  • Allies: Nekron and the Grand United Alliance of Destruction, The Lich, Deathwing, the Firebird, Lavos, Mephiles the Dark, Dharkon, Majin Buu, Giygas
  • Enemies: Pretty much everyone who doesn't want the world to be destroyed. More specifically? Sonic and Dr. Eggman, all other Sonic the Hedgehog deities, Xerneas, Gaea, Captain Planet, the Nature Preservers, Galeem, Eliphas, Ezalor, Sora, Amaterasu, Babidi, Steve, The Weather Trio
  • A primordial force of destruction and darkness, who hibernates millions of years to wake and destroy the world and Light Gaia to recreate it in an eternal cycle. It was recently found out that this being was currently underneath the entire Pantheon, resting. As soon as everyone found out, it proceeded to awaken and began destroying everything in its path. It was later defeated by a combination of Super Sonic, Steve? and Xerneas.
  • Dark Gaia's primal destruction and being barely sentient status makes it an enemy of most of the Pantheon, but a popular brute for the Grand United Alliance of Destruction. The Lich has a noticeable understanding of Dark Gaia, as its almost Almighty Idiot status of discord and destruction makes it similar to his teacher, GOLB. He believes that it is a lost spawn of GOLB, having manifested itself in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe.
  • Found itself an ally with Giygas, as much as such entities can even have allies. They are corruptive forces of destruction, topped off with being practically mindless. There was a similar opinion on Lavos, who also has the bonus of being buried deep in the Earth for eons like Dark Gaia. And it found a similar being of natural, bestial destruction in the form of the Firebird.
  • The Weather Trio absolutely hate this thing. They are rather chaotic and primal forces of the Earth and nature, with Kyogre and Groudon's squabbling having risked the stability of the whole world. But they would never try to destroy the world, and consider Dark Gaia an aberration. As Rayquaza's entire deal is preventing such forces of chaotic nature from ruining the world, it immediately confronted the beast.
  • Some parts of the pantheon and even some Quasdeities have been mutated by Dark Gaia, and most are trying to reverse what it has done. It has shown the ability to possess beings through its army, which has caused trouble through the pantheon. Its dark presence brings anger, sorrow and despair. Emperor Palpatine was very interested in this, believing Dark Gaia could be used as a means of empowering his connection to the Dark Side and influence over other people.
  • Gaea HATES Dark Gaia. Hates that such a monstrous force of death and destruction would have "Gaia" in its name. Hates that such a monstrous force of death and destruction slumbers within the bowels of the planet she embodies. She honestly believed Gohma Vlitra had reincarnated itself back into the pantheon. Naturally, such a force is a dire foe of the Nature Preservers.
  • It felt a commonality with Cthulhu as they are both ancient, unfathomable beings who will awake to bring Armageddon when the time comes. That commonality was stronger with Majin Buu, a sealed away evil with the explicit desire of the destruction of everything and fools who think they can control the power they unlock. Such as Babidi, who clearly didn't learn his lesson when he tried the same trick a second time.
  • A foe of all who side with the light, due to its nature as a monstrous force of darkness. Particularly powerful forces of light and order such as Amaterasu, Eliphas and Ezalor prove rather troubling for it. Werewolves are a bit more curious about Dark Gaia, given how its influence turned Sonic into the Werehog. For that matter, those who prove Dark Is Not Evil are not fond of it. Even most evil deities like Chernabog don't see much usefulness in the being. While Don Thousand has some appreciation for its dark, chaotic nature and how it spreads this, the creature is too mindless and focused on being an Omnicidal Maniac for him to side with.
  • This primal being sensed much of itself and its eternal rival Light Gaia within the heated rivalry of Galeem and Dharkon. Celestial beings of light and darkness, practically eternal and cosmic forces of destruction and rebirth. However, Galeem is just as malevolent as Dharkon. Not that Galeem liked Dark Gaia, seeing it as like its greatest foe. Dharkon found Dark Gaia a much appealing ally in their shared desire for destruction.
  • The only Sonic deity that seems to tolerate Dark Gaia is Mephiles the Dark. Unsurprising, given he is a being of darkness though originally light whose goals are the end of the world. With Iblis not present in the Pantheon, Dark Gaia serves as effective muscle for Mephiles. There has been discussions about who is stronger: Dark Gaia or Solaris/Mephiles' original form. It was determined Dark Gaia beats Solaris in raw strength, would lose due to Solaris' extradimensional nature.

  • A distress signal is received from a starship far away, prompting a rescue crew to determine what happened to that ship and if there's any survivors. Their search-and-rescue operation would end up becoming a horrific experience for everyone involved as they learn what happened to the Event Horizon. The ship has an experimental gravity drive that would allow for faster-than-light travel, but in the process, ended up sending the Event Horizon's crew into another dimension that's very similar to Hell, if not that place outright, where everyone has gone mad and killed each other in the ensuing calamity. The ship itself already looks very unnatural, with its twisted exterior housing a lot of spikes and some flesh throughout, and it being possessed by some sort of entity from the dimension it went through (and psychologically tormenting anyone inside the ship) more than demonstrates just how much of a nightmare being inside (let alone being involved with) that ship is.
  • News of a distress signal coming from somewhere in space reached the various space explorers of the Pantheon, who wanted to know what is going on and if there's anything worthwhile there, with the SCP Foundation also getting involved with the operation. Everyone involved eventually found a giant, strange-looking ship, which was believed to be where the signal was coming from. Members of the rescue team, including some personnel from the SCP Foundation, went inside the ship to investigate and see if anyone was there. As the operation continued, it became clear that something was horribly wrong as information got out, with members being driven insane and turning against each other whilst still inside that ship. It got to a point where the people trapped inside the ship needed to be rescued, which ended up being really difficult and few people inside the ship got killed during the madness. The ship was later fired upon in an attempt to destroy it, with part of it getting destroyed and the other part getting sent to another dimension. While recovering from the ordeal, the members of the rescue op were wondering if there was someone insane enough to try and use the ship for their own goals. Some time later, the ship returned and was fully rebuilt, but is still far within the starry skies of the Pantheon.
  • Issac Clarke, who has had experience in exploring abandoned haunted ships and was involved with exploring the Event Horizon when the Pantheon noticed it, was highly disturbed with what the ship can do to anyone that sets foot in it. It's one thing to scour through a ship and deal with a bunch of horrifying monsters inside of it, but it's another when that ship is more than capable of preying on psychological problems to drive people into madness. It doesn't help that Issac has had more than his share of putting up with hallucinations throughout his journeys. Issac's resolve and determination make him valuable when it comes to handling problems related the Event Horizon, mainly rescuing anyone that's somehow trapped inside.
  • Commander Shepard and the rest of his crewmates of the SSV Normandy all find the Event Horizon to be unlike many of their space adventures in the worst way possible. While they had to deal with a lot of political intrigue in addition to fighting multiple alien threats, an adventure inside the Event Horizon is more akin to psychological horror than what most space travelers normally go through. Given the number of issues Shepard and crew have suffered throughout their own adventures, going through a ship that can exploit their worst fears to the point of potentially turning against each other is something that they don't want to go through.
  • It wasn't just the SSV Normandy crew when it came to a group of space teams wanting to avoid the ship. The Guardians of the Galaxy and the Outlaw Star crew have also gotten word of the Event Horizon's attributes and origins and both teams have made it clear that they don't want to get involved with the ship as much as possible. It's true that both teams are no stranger to encountering plenty of unusual threats across the cosmos, attempting to explore the Event Horizon for whatever purpose is something that's bound to be much darker than any of either team's previous adventures.
  • Those who have suffered extensive mental trauma (especially those that were victims of Mind Rape) hold the spaceship in utter contempt for using anyone's psychological weaknesses against each other. Simon Henriksson is among those who avoid the ship no matter what as he's already gone through a horrible adventure involving his mind. He really does not want a repeat of that, especially given how the ship is more than capable of causing him to not only have an even worse repeat of what he went through, but make a potential confrontation against Book Simon occur even if the latter is actually somewhere else in the Pantheon.
  • While the members of the different versions of the USS Enterprise already hate the Event Horizon as it is, Picard seems to have a stronger level of hate against it. Picard is aware of what flaws he has and the kind of adventures he's gone through, including one instance where someone attempted to break him psychologically by trying to tell him there's a certain number of lights present. It isn't much of a surprise that whatever kinds of torture the Event Horizon can concoct will be far more intense and worse than just seeing some number of lights and forcibly being told an incorrect number of such.
  • Havik took plenty of interest in the ship since he originally hailed from the Chaosrealm, a place that served as his universe's equivalent of hell and possibly worse than that. While there hasn't been a clear consensus as to where the Event Horizon ended up, it's largely agreed on that it ended up a hellish place and Havik and a few others believe that it ended up in the Chaosrealm. He has even considered using the ship as part of his plans to spread chaos, causing many to be worried about what could happen if he manages to pull it off.
  • Many space explorers were horrified that Pinbacker was interested in the ship to the point of wanting to use it to further his goals. Pinbacker saw quite a bit of himself in the ship's creator, Dr. William Weir, in that they were once involved with a space mission that they ended up sabotaging. He also sees the Event Horizon as a perfect opportunity for humans to witness firsthand that their efforts are doomed to fail once they see their worst fears come to life. Pinbacker sometimes roams throughout the Event Horizon, hoping to find someone unlucky and add to whatever torment they're going through inside.
  • The ship's video log of what happened to its crew members has been dubbed "Bloody Orgy" due to the gruesome and sexually disturbing fates that befalled those involved. Those who have watched it to get a better idea of how dangerous the ship is consider it to be a sickening sight. One of the very few who liked what they witnessed from that log was Pinhead, who saw the "Bloody Orgy" as comparable or even greater to what the Cenobites have in mind when it comes to the their twisted pleasures. The extent of how much Pinhead wants to use the spaceship and to what end is a troubling question for those that think about it.
  • One idea tossed around by some to try and destroy the ship involves sending The Doom Slayer inside and shoot everything in sight. Given how often he has gone through different hellish settings and thoroughly hates anything of that sort, some have hoped that the sheer power and amount of firearms he was will be enough to destroy the ship from the inside. People are aware of the risks involved in sending a lone soldier inside a spaceship that can break them psychologically, but The Doom Slayer's track record is enough to put much of these fears to rest, if possible.
  • Jonathan Crane, looking for more in his ongoing research of fear, wanted to study the Event Horizon and its attributes regarding fear and torment in more detail after learning about it. Although Crane didn't really have the time to go into space, he managed to get some information about the Event Horizon via video footage and eyewitness accounts from those that dare traversed the spaceship. Scarecrow found the idea of an large enclosed space that preys on someone's psychological fears to be fascinating and has even considered the possibility of having something similar established in the Pantheon. Many don't want to know whether or not unleashing Scarecrow's fear gas inside a place like the Event Horizon will amplify someone's psychological torment and even extend how long they're suffering from it.
  • If there's one group of deities that wants the Event Horizon destroyed no matter what, it would be The Imperium of Man, especially when it comes to The Immortal God-Emperor of Mankind. To some extent, it's also personal for them since The Imperium attempted to use FTL travel by sending ships to the Sol System in an effort to colonize it, an effort that would end up going horribly wrong after learning about a domain called Immaterium, home of the Chaos Gods. Even if the Event Horizon didn't exactly go through that dimension, wherever it ended up became what it is now is just similar enough to Immaterium that the Imperium have put plenty of effort in destroying the ship. This sentiment is only bolstered by the fact that the Chaos Gods learned about the ship and see it as an effective tool in spreading their kind of corruption (or something similar to it).
  • The Unbidden are more than curious about the Event Horizon, given how they are a race of hostile extradimensional invaders that entered the picture via Jump Drive technology and that the ship had an experimental jump drive that sent it to a nightmarish dimension and became what it is. Given that they are interested in nothing more than consuming any sapient life that dares cross them, they see the Event Horizon as a potential tool in weakening the will of their victims before consuming them. They also see it as useful in helping them strengthen a potential friendship with the Chaos Gods, the four of which are already interested in the ship and its origins.
  • AM, an aggressive supercomputer, learned about the extent of the psychological torture that the Event Horizon is capable of and found the inner working of the spaceship to be yet another potential spot for him to extend his brand of unending punishment to those that he comes across. AM being capable of torturing his victims for prolonged periods of time, combined with the hellish nightmares that one can witness inside the Event Horizon make for an unfathomable combination and a nightmare that just might be impossible to get out of.

Close up shot of Kthanid's face
  • Rank: Elder God (equivalent to a Greater God in the pantheon)
  • Symbol: Its own octopoid face, but cuddlier and with golden lights compared to Cthulhu's
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, no Blue-and-Orange Morality about it
  • Portfolio: Eldritch Abomination That Is Helpful And Friendly To Humans, Ruler Of The Elder Gods And Main Foe Of The Great Old Ones, The Abel To Cthulhu's Cain, Benevolent Precursors, White Sheep, Palette Swap Of Cthulhu, Pacifism, But Helps Other Races Fight Great Old Ones, It's Personal
  • Domains: Benevolence, Aliens, Lovecraftian Beings, Imprisonment
  • Allies: Kenny McCormick, The Doctor, Simba, Mufasa, Kaworu Nagisa, The Chozo, Toriel, Ahura Mazda, Amara, Prismo, Alcor
  • On speaking terms with: Izanami(Persona)
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: The SCP Foundation
  • Enemies: The Outer Gods and Great Old Ones, especially Cthulhu (his Evil Twin) and Ithaqua, malevolent cosmic horrors like the Old Gods, Dagon and Dark Gaia, Eric Cartman, Amon(Starcraft), SCP-682, Scar(The Lion King), Angra Mainyu
  • Pities: Abigail Williams (Fate/Grand Order)
  • Most beings in the Cthulhu Mythos find human morality irrelevant, and can often trample over mankind like one would unwittingly step on an anthill. Still some have interest in the proverbial ants, but Kthanid is unique in being a benevolent cosmic being. Leader of the Elder Gods, he is responsible for many of the mythos being sealed away and is a guiding force for man. All this in spite of being as much of an Eldritch Abomination as Cthulhu.
  • Said to be as good as Cthulhu is evil. Well, at least as humans see Cthulhu. Kthanid and Cthulhu are twins, and do not like each other. Still, it is worth noting that the Evil Twin isn't always a threat to mankind, having saved the world even if it was for his own personal reasons. The two still don't get along, mainly because Kthanid is consistently benevolent. He tends to relax by conversing with another friendly cosmic being and former holder of his pantheonic title, Prismo.
  • Because of how he differs as the White Sheep of the Cthulhu Mythos, he relates to Kaworu Nagisa, who is an Angel that ultimately sides with humanity instead of competing with them. The Doctor, ever the rebel against Time Lord society, could understand where Kthanid was coming from. Granted the Time Lords aren't evil(mostly), but they get each other and how they feel. In stark contrast Kthanid despises the depths of evil Amon goes to in complete contrast to the rest of his race.
  • Eric Cartman assumed that Kenny wanted to get back at him over the whole "Coon and Friends" incident and steal Cthulhu's loyalty to fight him. Kthanid informed Cartman that he's Cthulhu's twin, they just look the same except for his Supernatural Gold Eyes. However as Cthulhu's sworn enemy he opposes Cartman and how he directed Cthulhu to get rid of people who he's annoyed at. Since Kenny's immortality somehow involves the Cult of Cthulhu, Kthanid wishes to help Kenny find the truth of his condition and cure it.
  • His opposition to Cthulhu led him to learn about Dagon, who Kthanid took an immediate disliking to due to his desire for domination and control. Kthanid has also learned of a number of twins in the position of representing good and evil, siding with the good against the evil and relating to them. He seems upset that Chip hasn't found a niche in the Trope Pantheon since he would help fight off against Dark Gaia's destructive ambitions.
  • Some Lovecraftian fans consider Kthanid controversial for being a hero in a series around Blue-and-Orange Morality. Kthanid informed them that they accept beings like Nyarlathotep and the Defiler who follow conventional morality(just being evil), so why can't a traditionally good being exist? For what it's worthy, the Elder Gods he leads have alien morality, but they're just more helpful compared to the Great Old Ones and Outer Gods.
  • Loathes the Great Old Ones for them slaying his family while he laid sleeping. He relates to Toriel for losing her son. Given this tragedy and his antagonism towards his brother Cthulhu, Kthanid has sided with Simba and Mufasa. Also opposes the Outer Gods, lending Kthanid's pity to Abigail Williams for being the host of Yog-Sothoth(or as she knows it, Sut-Typhon)
  • Wasn't happy to learn that a number of malevolent eldritch beings had already ascended, especially his brother and Ithaqua. The Old Ones remind him of many of his Great Old One and Outer God foes. Unsurprisingly SCP-682 found him "disgusting", though he has similar thoughts on the Great Old Ones. Kthanid feels he needs to chill out and let go of his hatred of humanity.
  • Kthanid was pleased to learn of more benevolent eldritch beings. Amara was above his weight class and used to be villainous, but had a Heel–Face Turn and Kthanid is free to converse with her. Kthanid was less certain of what to think of Izanami, who has a weaker grasp on human morals, but she has a general interest in what humans want even if it's misguided so Kthanid seems accepting of her. Kthanid is also on good terms with Alcor, another cosmic being who wants to help humans instead of hinder them.
  • Set up numerous means of protection against the Great Old Ones for humanity to eventually use. In this way he is a similar benevolent precursor to the Chozo. Despite sealing away many of the Great Old Ones, however, Kthanid is a lot more conflicted on the SCP Foundation. Yes, they are a major help against Kthanid's enemies. However he questions many of their actions as ethically dubious, and is concerned that their sealing of the anomalous might involve allies of his own. For now, however, the two are on good terms.

    • For Alsanna and Karla, the enemies and allies are inverted
  • The creature known as the Father of the Abyss is the ultimate threat to the First Flame. The blight of the Abyss it carries, if left unchecked, will spread and destroy most life in the Pantheon and twist what is left into loathsome horrors. While it was successfully locked in combat against the flames of the Old Chaos, the real problem (the death of his homeworld) began when the darkness successfully extinguished the fires of Izalith. Slowly but surely, the darkness reaches for the dying flames...
  • Manus is similar to the Beast in power and mindlessness. It barely has enough conscience to attempt to leave its temple, attack anything nearby and seek Humanity. Other than that, it only seeks its precious shattered amulet. The Chosen Undead holds half of it, and searches are underway to find the other half.
  • Artorias and Ornstein are not allowed to attempt to hunt the horror unsupervised. While their hatred of the creature is absolute and their power is highly welcomed in any fight against it, they bear its taint and both have fallen to it in the past. Artorias in particular still holds much of the monster's power sealed within himself, and should he fall, Manus could reclaim the Abyss.
  • Upon defeat by the Chosen Undead, he was shattered into pieces, which would later resurface to bedevil the Bearer of the Curse.
  • Due to the machinations of Melkor, Manus has largely reformed into a single entity, though many of its component fragments have been granted a sort of independent existence, still as a whole devoted to sundering the First Flame and collapsing everything that is and could be into the darkness of the Abyss.
    • Nashandra has adopted the role of The Dragon and personal courier, her ambitions and goals are very close to her parent's.
    • Elana has promised revenge against both the Chosen Undead and the Bearer of the Curse, and had Sinh restored to continue her depraved work.
    • The Darklurker is now the Guardian of Manus' temple; all invaders must fight this creature before fighting Manus himself.
    • Alsanna shrouds the path to the temple in thick fog and seals the paths in mazes of snow, sleet and ice while making sure the temple's creatures are equally contained inside, honoring her lost Ivory King while at the same time choking the Old Chaos. Manus and her "siblings" are well aware of this, but they hate the Old Chaos too much to care. More so, Alsanna actually sneaks away to meet others, seeking help against her "Father", and so far has bonded with Elsa, Anna, and Weiss Schnee. Those who hear the story about her and her king are often brought to tears.
    • Nadalia still awaits her King in Manus's temple, healing and strengthening its roaming monsters through her idols, in addition to her eternal guardian, Raime the Fume Knight. She has claimed an attraction to Gwyn, still seeking the Soul of the Old Iron King. Gwyn has yet to respond beyond ignoring everyone that brings it up.
  • King Allant seeks to advance or even use Manus' plans, as the deaths of the First Flame and Gwyn will usher in an Age of Dark which shall end the illusion of Hope.
  • The few Magical Girls that dare to try and fight Manus are often overwhelmed by the Dark and are summarily corrupted into Witches. The Sisterhood has thus issued flee-on-sight orders on this thing and forbidden all attempts to hunt it down. The group has already lost too many to dream of fighting this horror; even at its peak victory would have been... expensive.
  • Those who confront the Father of The Abyss will find him like this.
  • Another Fragment has appeared, though unlike her sisters she is content to merely content to teaching those willing to learn sorceries and pyromancies rooted in the Abyss. So that they can use it for good and defeat the evils that her "Father" helped to create.

  • Symbol: A simple depiction of a Vex Goblin's head

  • Domains: Time, Terraforming, Structure, Mystery, Pattern
  • (Temporary) Allies:
  • Enemies: Those who intrude on Vex territory or get in the way of their goals.
  • Fears: Those who defy fate (yet they still need them)
  • Ever enigmatic and ancient, the Vex are a race of cybernetic Radiolaria time travellers who seek to reshape everything we see in their own image. They are ruthless in their purpose, following actions based on The Pattern and will eliminate anyone who are perceived as a threat in their goals. They turn planets essentially into giant computers with their Mooks reshaping the terrain while the Axis Minds oversee them with different ways and methods depending on the Mind. Examples of the Axis Minds include Sekrion, who was essential in reshaping the entirety of Venus into one that fits the Vex Collective, Atheon oversaw the Vault of Glass and is capable of erasing others from existence, the Undying Mind once sought out to retake the Black Garden and remove it from the flow of time, and Quria Blade Transform was responsible for analyzing Sword Logic and changing based on collected data from that (which may have caused them to be this way, you can thank Oryx's son Crota for that).
  • Deities from several Houses awoke to a peculiar sight: Strange pillars of white lines dotted the area, boxed structures with a distinct age to them have appeared without warning, and structures are materializing out of nowhere. Some deities have reported such incidents beforehand deep within the House, but they were simply brushed off and quickly cleaned up without regard. This bit them in the back when after a month-long investigation to the alien structures research conducted have started disappearing left and right. People then noticed a strange new entrance deep under the House of similar architecture to the others. When attempting to open it, the deities were soon shot at by a large force of machines, the entire House soon following the same fate. Although a surprise, they drove them off, but they seemed to have already made their home in the Pantheon, and have no intention of leaving.
  • While their temple was originally the Vault of Glass the Vex swapped it out for a new structure altogether, one specifically designed for the Pantheon although you'll find it's also a mix between the aforementioned Vault of Glass, the Pyramidion, the Citadel, the Black Garden, and more. In the very depths of the House of Technology once you have followed the strange circular structures, past the alien flora growing and thriving near their structures assuming you have evaded the hostile machines and hazardous Radiolarian fluid lies the entrance. Here is where the more major projects take place, and expect to face the Vex at their strongest as they dictate the laws of reality itself. Though it tends to vary, from locking off certain areas of time and space to erasing someone from existence. Regardless, their ontological weaponry is nothing to joke at, and the location hasn't even come close to be fully explored.
    • It's important that you also know that time works differently within their massive temple. A trip inside that took a few hours is almost instant on the outside. This works to their advantage, allowing them to conduct many calculations with their machines to remains steps ahead above others. It doesn't exactly make them omniscient, but looking at how they operate most of the time does give off that feeling. Unless if you can defy fate, then things get a lot more... complex for them.
    • Those who suffered attempts of existence erasure are advised to never confront the likes of Atheon, Panoptes, or any other Axis Minds capable of such feats.
  • Yes, the Radiolarian fluid looks like milk. Go ahead, drink it. It's proven to cause bodily harm, but it can also corrupt whoever makes contact with them as well. The same goes for their technology, as shown with Kabr and Asher Mir. Sure, their technology is advanced and it can be advantageous to utilize for oneself, but the cons can prove to be devastating and often irreversible. It doesn't stop the likes of opportunistic deities like the Grineer or the Corpus from trying the plunder their secrets. Since the Pyramidion is made to change others into Vex, the ones gunned down could very well be human.
  • Their ambitions are to remake the entire universe which simultaneously kills off everyone that isn't them/assimilates to their collective, and with the events after the recapture of the Last City they've come pretty close simulating such a future onto reality itself. Of course, not many are a fan of being murdered to suit something else's needs and have been barred from many alliances despite the Vex having no intention of joining. First off, they have no sense of good or evil so the GUAG and GUAE are out. Second, their goals of following "the Pattern" can be translated to a lawful goal which of course the GUAC isn't fond of along with the GUAL because they refuse to hear to the Great Will's power in the end. Lastly, while their goals somewhat overlap, they are no allies to the GUAD since they have absolutely no intention of murdering themselves after causing such destruction. Plus, Oryx is an official member, and his Taken almost corrupted them all once.
    • While their fellow members are cautious, they nonetheless are affiliated with the Grand United Alliance of Machines. Though done pragmatically, the Alliance has recognized they can show mercy to machines as opposed to coldly murdering anything that so much as get in their way. It's not a prominent trait, but if the Grox could get in, there's no reason as to why they can too. Plus it's not like they can turn down a species that's strongly affiliated with time itself, it helps fill the limited power they have compared to the other Alliances. They have forsaq a group of heroic machines that oppose them along with the GUAM, however, and have worked to try and dismantle them long before they make any moves.
  • It's been discovered that Hobgoblin heads actually make good hatracks. Many deities from the House of Costumes had sought out these Vex, only to receive high-velocity particle jets to the face. Nowadays, they just resort to picking up what's left of their heads after a battle. Though, looking at Vex armor worn by Guardians has piqued their interest, though the space liches advise that they be careful. It's not like they don't understand where they're coming from, though. It is pretty fashionable.
  • The Vex will worship any deity that they cannot comprehend so long as they get something out of it or they do not cross the Vex in some way. They understand that the Eldritch Abominations here won't be as generous back at their home universe. Although fruitless at first, they did manage to communicate with the Great Ones in an attempt to analyze their power, and become overall better. They seem similar goals of taking power with other deities, like Hyde Kido since his sword can actually erase others from existence. Similarly, they wish to understand Frisk's power as it contradicts their understanding power, although they know better than confronting them head-on. They just need to be patient.
    • They also hold interest in Mementos that Yaldabaoth and the Phantom Thieves use, believing it to be another way to make manifest their Bad Future as well as erase others from existence. All they have to do is evict the current tenants. All they have to do is take analyze it for themselves and things will start falling into place hopefully.
  • Have made many, many enemies in their time within the Pantheon. Falling under as xeno scum that wish to kill everything, they are no friends with the Emperor of Mankind or the Imperium of Man made worse that the Vex are technically Social Darwinists. Master Chief, Doomguy, and Isaac Clarke have also clashed with the machines many times, being complete thorns at their side when trying to further their plans. They also come under fire by the Neuroi and the Daleks, continuously fighting each other for dominance.
    • After nearly being consumed, they have issued to eliminate the likes of the Zerg, the Flood, and the Infested, understanding the threat they pose to their goals. That mistake will not happen again, and they are perfectly willing to use their enemies to destroy any and all attempts at subjugating them.
    • Due to their exploitation of time, they are on the Dahaka's kill list and constantly goes after various Axis Minds. They are one of the few deities they actually consider a threat, shrugging off everything they throw at them. Similar levels involve Chronos and any other protectors of time itself like Chronoa. If they are to remake everything, they would need to be erased.
  • Is also located in Cybernetics & Enhancements.
  • "The Vex have no hope. No imagination, no drive, no fear. All they have is the Pattern. Everything must fit. If it can be made to fit, good. If it can't, it gets cut away."

Death/Extermination Submersible Combat Organism, Goddess of Lovecraftian Cuties (DESCO)
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Octorabbit
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Adorable Little Sister with advanced functionality for World Domination, Lovecraftian Superpowers, Combat Tentacles, Living Weapon capable of magichange, attracted to destructive beings, Third-Person Person, Desu
  • Followers: Goose the Flerken, Zoe/Z'gord, Mooncake
  • Domains: Bosses, Destruction
  • Allies: Valvatorez, Artina, Axel, Godzilla, H.P. Lovecraft, Ika Musume
  • Master: Gig
  • Enemies: Mao, Aurum
  • Rival: Popuko
  • Desco appeared before the Pantheon when it was shrouded in darkness, claiming herself to be a vicious creature who will bring the Pantheon into blazing chaos. However, it turned out the darkness was merely a blackout and when the lights were turned back on, what the gods saw was a cute demon girl with a tentacle creature on her back. Taken in by how adorable she was, the gods accepted her into the pantheon as the Goddess of Lovecraftian Cuties. Desco was disappointed that her title was not as terrifying as she hoped it would be, but plans to work her way towards a better title.
    • Desco is at least happy to be amongst the many dreaded and powerful creatures of the House of Otherness. Whenever she is in the house, she can always be seen taking notes and observing the others gods' actions.
  • As she is a member of the Hades Party, Valvatorez and Artina were happy to see her ascend. Fenrich wasn't as pleased not only because of how friendly she is with Val and annoying to him, but because her ascension means that it's only a matter of time before "the Lass" ascends. True to his word, Desco immediately began making plans for her older sister, Fuka Kazamatsuri, to ascend.
  • Has an interesting relationship with Ika Musume. On the one hand, Ika Musume constantly bugs Desco to join her army, believing she and her tentacle creature will be instrumental in her invasion. Desco refuses every single time, saying that she would only join her if it ultimately benefited her Big Sis. On the other hand, because neither of them are taken seriously (as a conqueror and as a Final Boss), they often confide in each other.
  • Desco has a huge crush on Godzilla, who she considers a major hunk. It baffles the minds of many members of the Pantheon.
    • As such, she's jealous that Popuko is allowed to ride on the King of the Monsters' head or tail.

  • There was a rumor going around the House of Faith about a mysterious nun questioning the purity of other members and telling of a way to grant any wish they desire. After an investigation, Double was discovered in the Pantheon, for no one knows how long. She was then given her own temple, mainly so that she can be kept an eye on.
  • Was absolutely LIVID to hear Eliza made it into the Pantheon. She vowed to make her pay the ultimate price after killing Aeon & Venus, two 3rds of the Trinity she worships.
  • Has shown an interest in the GUAL, as their version of Christianity shares many parallels with her own faith of Trinitism. However, her loyalty to the Skull Heart and her deceptive/destructive nature has earned the ire and distrust of many alliance members.
    • In truth, she is loyal to no particular faction, going from place to place to fulfill her own agenda. She does mainly reside with the GUAE since they are the ones that tolerate her the most.
  • She is able to perfectly mimic the appearance and voices of other gods in the Pantheon. Although she mainly does this to taunt or mock others, she has been spotted trying to convince other gods to take the Skull Heart while disguised.
    • This doesn't apply to just other deities, but food and items as well. She is even able to take the form of pure living Life Fibers, which has attracted the attention of Ragyo Kiryuin.
  • Has earned the hate of Edward Elric, who opposes basically everything Double does, from manipulating others through religion to the very nature of the Skull Heart itself. He pursued her, believing she was another Homunculus created by Father. She denied this claim, but has since then began taking an interest in Father and the ascended Humonculi ever since.
    • One of their confrontations ended up with Double transforming her appearance into his deceased mother with a twisted smile on her face. The conversation did not end well.
  • Is working with Seymour Guado to assist in the genocide of the Pantheon, much to the disdain of Yuna. Double in turn is disappointed in Yuna that she did not continue the cycle of destruction back in her own world.
  • Has been spending an unsettling amount of time lurking around the House of Magic, talking with many of the Magical Girls there about the powers of the Skull Heart. She is ESPECIALLY interested in Madoka ever since the Great Upheaval. Some say that Double left Madoka a "sympathetic gift" in the form of an ominously radiant box...
  • After spending some time with Senator Armstrong, she has picked up a few... interesting policies.
  • Was once accidentally eaten by Kirby while she was the color of Neopolitan Ice Cream.The results of the transformation were so unspeakable, the two are never allowed to be in the same area again.
  • She used to try to tempt Tsubaki Yayoi when she was under the effect of Mind Eater, but she then obtained her new power as Izayoi and sobered up, and now defiantly stands against her. Double has noted Tsubaki as a threat to her own agenda.
  • After hearing about a Power struggle between The Evil Queen and Maleficent, she secretly made both of them an offer; The chance to use the Skull Heart all for themselves if they could defeat the other. Double eagerly awaits a response...

Ghatanothoa, Great Old One of Horrific Visages (The Dark God, Gatanozoa, Master of Darkness)

  • Herald: The Lloigor

  • Chronicler: H.P Lovecraft
  • Those immune to its effects: Mummies like Anakaris, the blind, Fuminori Sakisaka
  • Interests: The Weeping Angels
  • Allies: Cthulhu (its father), SCP-173, Typhon, AM, Junko Enoshima, Chernabog
  • Enemies: The SCP Foundation, Ultraman, The Five Survivors, anyone who's suffered an And I Must Scream situation, SCP-096, either Medusa, Poseidon, Anakaris, Babidi, Imhotep
  • A common trait of Lovecraftian beings is that their visage is so alien, so abominable that it hurts, even drives people mad or flat out kills them. Ghatanothoa might inflict the worst fate; those who see it are petrified, or more accurately mummified and left immobile. However the brain is preserved indefinitely, fully aware but unable to do anything unless someone else destroys it. Even a perfect replica will have the same effect.
  • Similar to Cthulhu, and some thought that "Ghatanothoa" was just another name. Further research reveals it to be the child of Cthulhu, and lives within a mountain. It is worshipped by some humans, and its dragon servant, the Lloigor. Its desire to be free has caught it the attention and understanding of Typhon, who also seeks to break from a mountain and is already so monstrous as to be immune from Ghatanotha's Brown Note.
  • Ghatanothoa sought its follower, the Lloigor, by wandering into the House of Dragons. It was swiftly banned afterwards for causing mummification among the dragon deities there. Fortunately there were experts in the House of Health and Diseases to reverse the process, but it was a painful one and they hope nothing like it again happens.
  • Since the visage is what causes the Fate Worse than Death, any blind deities are safe from it. The creature itself, on the other hand? Best no blind deity under the Intermediate rank encounter it. Remember to keep a blindfold on if one has to meet it. Though not blind, Fuminori's distorted perception allows him to visualize Ghatanothoa as something pleasing to the eyes and avoid the harmful effects looking at it would normally cause.
  • Those who are already mummies are also immune to Ghatanothoa's Brown Note properties. This serves an advantage for Anakaris, who's got nothing holding him back from personally opening a can of whoop-ass on the Great Old One and make sure it will never threaten his kingdom.
  • Because of the And I Must Scream looking at the thing inflicts, those who have suffered similar fates absolutely hate it. Imhotep's horrific punishment leads him to hate Ghatanothoa, but due to his mummified state is immune from its harmful effects. On the flip slide, AM(who as a machine can't be mummified) was overjoyed at the ascension of Ghatanothoa due to the absolute torment the Brown Note Being could deliver. As part of his larger sadistic games, AM helps Ghatanothoa be mobile in the pantheon.
  • As mentioned, a perfect replica of its visage will have the same terrible effect. Due to this no photos are permitted to be taken, and anyone in the House of Craft who tries to make a sculpture of Ghatanothoa will be put under house arrest. Babidi once made the idiotic attempt to Majin Ghatanothoa. Assuming such a thing is even possible with it was bad enough, but thinking he could bypass it through a crystal ball led to a well-deserved Fate Worse than Death.
  • The SCP Foundation were swift in their decision to contain Ghatanothoa. Much to its displeasure, it found they were quite up to the task and have contained far worse than it. Tests were made to determine how it would affect other SCPs. SCP-096 was mummified, but not paralyzed and continued to wail on the Great Old One for looking at its face. They aren't going to test it on SCP-682 because of this; 682 is either immune or would be able to move around as a mummy.
  • SCP-173 wasn't affected due to its biology, and actually found Ghatanothoa a good ally due to its effect complimenting its neck-snapping and preventing people from keeping an eye on it. The Weeping Angels were similarly unaffected, but were interested in the opportunities its mummification could give and make people easy packages to send back in time and feed off that life force. However it's an interest, and they don't like Ghatanothoa anymore than everyone else.
  • Comparable to Medusa, due to being a monster that paralyzes those that see it. However it's much more dangerous since you can't just use mirrors or reflections to "see" and avoid the Brown Note. They're disturbed by the creature as much as anyone and don't want it associating with them. Poseidon knows the association, and doesn't want a Medusa-like creature such as Ghatanothoa to get any followers.
  • Despite it's horrific visage, Ghatanothoa is like most Great Old Ones and morality usually doesn't exactly apply to it. "Usually" being the key word. As Gatanozoa, it is the Master of Darkness who destroyed an ancient civilization, and seeks to do the same to humanity. All while wishing to spread total despair. To spread its darkness in this form, it has allied with Chernabog. It is fond of Junko Enoshima's desire to spread despair to the world as well. However, it sometimes takes nicer forms. One of them being a little girl.

  • Domains: Christmas, Abduction, Torture, Rituals, "Gifts", Subverting Innocence
  • Followers: Joulupukki, Hogfather, Mr Sacks, Zim's Santa Suit
  • Banned from: The Houses of Craft and Commerce
  • Interested in: The House of Torture & Mutilation
  • Allies: SCP-106, Freddy Krueger, Melkor, Pennywise the Clown, Eddie Low, Jack the Ripper, Ramsay Bolton, Oogie Boogie
  • Headbutting Villains with: Winterbolt, Pitch Black
  • Enemies: The SCP Foundation, every single Santa (even Robot Santa Claus), literally every Christmas deity and everyone related to it, Jack Skellington, the entire House of Family, Son Goku, Zim, Dib Membrane, Xerneas, Jack Frost(both of them), Queen Elsa, Tony Tony Chopper
  • SCP-4666. Object Class: Keter. An entity that shows up from the night of December 21-22 to January 1-2 north of 40 degrees latitude, "the Yule Man" acts like a twisted parody of Santa and the Krampus. During a Weissnacht Event he ritualistically tortures and kills families in creatively brutal ways, and kidnaps kids to work in his factory. They work in hellish conditions to make presents out of human body parts, as a macabre take on the holidays. He is equal parts Serial Killer and Humanoid Abomination.
  • Upon his ascension, SCP-4666 soon found himself despised by every single Santa in the pantheon, and every being related to Christmas. And we do mean every, as Robot Santa Claus was repulsed by him. When the Yule Man questioned where he gets to have the moral high ground, he replied that he only acts brutal to the naughty kids, it's just that 99.999% of them are naughty in his eyes. Even then, he wouldn't subject them or his elves to the level of torture the Yule Man is guilty of.
  • Jack Skellington has been spending much of the winter holidays trying to take out SCP-4666, as he does not treat the torture and death of children lying down, nor the perversion of holidays. 4666 pointed out that he messed up Christmas and doesn't have room to talk, though this is only trying to save face as he does not care about how monstrous his take on the holidays is.
  • Has been summarily banned from the House of Craft and Commerce. This is due to his "Weissnacht" gifts for the pantheon involved him crafting stuff from bones, muscles, skin and whatever body parts he can get ahold of, which he was making in Craft and tried to sell in Commerce. The House of Family will shoot him on site for obvious reasons. SCP-4666 has instead produced "gifts" in the House of Torture and Mutilation, along with improving his "craft".
  • Wanted to make a flying reindeer of his own. After mutilating animals and stitching wings didn't work, SCP-4666 decided to go after Xerneas (a fairy deer was "close enough"), and the actual reindeer Tony Tony Chopper. It's better off not knowing what he planned to do with them, though it likely involves using their immortality and healing capabilities to keep his child slaves live longer to work harder. Son Goku proceeded to Instant Transmission and beat the living daylights out of the Yule Man due to his position as Champion of Christmas.
  • Zim and Dib recognized SCP-4666 as similar to the rogue Santa Suit of their universe, a Christmas monstrosity. Worrying that it had somehow returned in a new form, they teamed up to stop 4666. Both Jack Frosts and Queen Elsa loathe the Yule Man, who can be seen stalking the House of Ice and Cold.
  • Has attracted the attention of other twisted holiday figures and enemies of said holidays. Oogie Boogie likes the cut of his jib, and how he could help restore Bug Day. Winterbolt and Pitch Black saw a lot of potential, but they are less happy to work with SCP-4666. Winterbolt worries he might get in the way of his rule of the North Pole and the holiday seasons as a fellow Christmas figure, while Pitch Black thinks he's a bit too intense for a full partnership.
  • Melkor seems fond of SCP-4666, since the entity perverts everything about Santa, The Krampus and Christmas to a truly wicked and nightmarish level. Freddy Krueger appreciates 4666's twisted sense of style and how he brings fear and pain to so many people. And SCP-106, having already done horrible things in a macabre Halloween, wants to have fun spreading suffering with a fellow SCP. Pennywise was most amused by how he perverts something innocent much like himself, and how they like eating kids.
  • Unfortunately, SCP-4666 has been seen giving out his grotesque gifts to various, truly malevolent deities in the House of Crime. Eddie Low loved the present of a mutilated, stitched corpse that was meant to be a life-sized doll. It seems to like how Jack the Ripper systematically tears apart his victims, and Ramsay Bolton has gotten some terrible ideas on how to celebrate Christmas from the Yule Man.
