  • Respects: All Might and Izuku Midoriya, Shoto Todoroki, Superman, Batman, Madoka Kaname, Spider-Man
  • Conflicting Opinions: Kotetsu T. Kaburagi/Wild Tiger
  • The "Hero Killer" Stain, a rather infamous individual who caused a rather big impact in his world's society after he gave a Motive Rant about how he would destroy all the "fake" heroes that poison humanity, indirectly inspiring many villains to come out of the shadows. Chizome Akagure was once an aspiring hero who grew cynical and jaded of how the meaning of hero was twisted and turned into a shallow profession and the values of being a hero that All Might has set were being gradually lost, so he too it upon himself to purge all "fake heroes" from the world and no one was going to stop him.
  • How he managed to ascend is a mystery. The last reports about him is that he is held in the maximum security prison "Tartarus" where only the most dangerous villains are contained. It's theorized that Melkor had something to do with his sudden arrival, seeing how Stain served as an inspiration for villains in his world would definitely help Melkor a lot. However, Stain rejected being part of the GUAE, mostly because he doesn't want to waste his time helping someone like Melkor, who Stain isn't really particularly fond of in the first place.
  • He has made it clear that the only one that is allowed to kill him is the only true hero of his world, All Might. Stain seems to respect the figure and values that he represents and would definitely challenge him to a duel. He was delighted to see All Might present in the Pantheon though was also surprised to see Izuku Midoriya as well. Izuku had the honor of being the first person that met Stain's expections of how a true hero should be, thus prompting him to not only spare him, but save his life from a Nomu. He now waits to see how the Age of "Deku" will be.
  • However, that does not mean he's on friendly terms with Midoriya. He still has deep resentment for Midoriya and two of his allies due to taking him down in Hosu City.
    • That said, even if Stain's philosophy of what a true hero has to be is one of the aspects people tend to agree with, that doesn't mean everyone he targets is a "fake" hero. After all, he ended crippling Tensei Iida for life when it was shown that he actually a selfless man who was sincerely dedicated to being a hero. From what Stain said, he targeted the man because his reasoning for heroism was because of family tradition rather than any true proactivity. Even a good deal of sympathetic to Stain's views were kinda pissed at Stain for this.
  • He might be evil, but he himself hates those who cause mindless destruction or evil just because and considers them even worse that phony heroes. One example is the Joker, who thought that he could ally himself with the Hero Killer but Stain almost killed him the moment he explained his intentions.
  • His quirk allows him to paralize anyone by tasting their blood, a rather dangerous power and can easily give him an edge in one on one confrontations, so very few people try to take him head on. The paralysis also lasts a certain amount of time depending the victim's blood type, but it usually give him enough time to finish off his opponents.
    • This ability has been the bane of Skarlet ever since she foolishly tried to challenge Stain to a duel after learning of their similar powers. Since she is made out of blood and most of her attacks come out of her, Stain just has to lick her in order to have a clear victory, basically being the living counter to everything Skarlet can do. Stain just considers her lucky that he cannot kill her otherwise he would've already done so.
    • This ability might also be a disadvantage for Stain himself in certain scenarios. He has been warned that he should try avoiding tasting the blood of beings such as Nyarlathotep or the Chaos Gods unless he wants to be corrupted by their influence.
  • Rather dissapointed that he couldn't get the Hero Killer title, it already belonging to Barbatos Goetia. The two don't really get along that well, mostly because their fighting styles and motivations couldn't be further apart.
  • The nature of death in the pantheon means that Stain has a harder time hunting down the phony heroes as he calls them, but that hasn't determined him at all. Many people do truly admire his tenacity and determination, mentioning when he stood up against several professional heroes and being willing to take them all on, and Stain managed to make them all scared of him with sheer will power alone, even the likes of Gran Torino and Endeavor.
  • His extremist attitude made it difficult for him to get into one of the alliances. Neither Good or Law wanted him, Destruction was uninterested (And even Stain thinks they're crazy), as were Machines. It was a toss-up between Evil or Chaos. Stain did come close to joining the GUAE due to his connection with the Villain Alliance and Kurogiri's presence, but after learning that Melkor's motivations were, in his eyes, pettier than Shigaraki Tomura's (Not helped once Kurogiri informed Stain on Tomura's growth), he jumped ship to the GUAC, as their ideals line up perfectly with his. Despite this however, much like in his world, Stain continues to inspire villains. Members of both the GUAC and GUAE are in awe of his zeal and determination, and this has motivated both sides to improve.
  • Of all the heroes who came to his attention, Wild Tiger has been once that has perplexed the Hero Killer the most. Him being the representative of Corporate-Sponsored Superhero had instantly made him a target for Stain but after he learned that the man himself has all the ideals of the true hero he believes in, he then decided to leave him be after a short fight. It didn't help that Lunatic, one of Tiger's foes, is also a follower of Stain.
    • Stain is likewise conflicted on Linkara. While the internet reviewer has flaws that Stains loathes, (Such as using a spaceship to win arguments, lose sight of his convictions, and film his adventures in order to make rent), Linkara's focus on superhero comics has shown that he DOES understand the values of a true hero that Stain strives to enforce. Linkara, for his part, considers Stain's extremist traits understandable, but unacceptable. He was also reminded of how he himself nearly headed down a path similar to Stain.
  • Stain was not always a villain, his former identity is that of Stendhal, a vigilante who targeted villains and murdered them, ironically he was one of the types of hero he would later label as a fake one. He considers that past of his an Old Shame and would prefer if it was kept secret. That being said, the memory and speech that he was given by Knuckle Duster stuck with him and after seeing The Punisher and Batman, he was reminded of him. With Punisher he gets along just find provided they don't get in the way of each other and with Batman not so much, but at least Stain is willing to help him hunt down the Joker.
  • He usually isn't one that harms children but the higher and more active presence of younger heroes has caught his attention. Due to how some of them act...y'know, since they're still kids, he has sworn to destroy them, such as:
    • Finn the Human, for letting his emotions get the better of him numerous times, especially back when Finn was undergoing puberty and ignored his heroic duties in favor of a relationship after Flame Princess broke up with him. Stain refuses to let Finn live down how he abandoned the Lemon Children to an insane Lemongrab, and has sworn to kill him to rectify this.
      • Likewise, Stain is determined to eliminate Finn's companions, seeing them as equal examples of false heroes. Jake's laziness and Marceline's more unsavory traits during her first encounters with Finn infuriated Stain. Jake is horrified by Stain, while Marceline is determined to stop the Hero Killer. As for Finn himself, he's not going to let Stain get to him, and will fight against the Hero-Killer.
    • Sayaka Miki, for failing to live up to the heroic self she set up to be. The latter case got him in trouble with the Magical Girl Sisterhood, who won't hesitate to help Sayaka if she needs to, but Stain is not only unafraid of them, but he also intends to cull a great many of them, particularly the ones from Sayaka's universe, due to how their wishes were not exactly truthful or as selfless as they thought. Never mind that these flaws would turn them into Witches anyway, Stain has sworn to shatter their Soul Gems for failing to live up to the ideal that their archetype is supposed to represent. The only one he's not gunning for is Madoka, due to having ideals not dissimilar to those of a true hero, and backing up those ideals with determination. He'd go after Homura for betraying those ideals out of sheer selfishness and not a wide-spreading cause...but her current power level isn't something for Stain to match up to, and she is still devoted to Madoka regardless, which earned her some brownie points in Stain's eyes. Some, being the key word here.
    • He has begun reconsidering his stances on the magical girls when someone explained to him their situation, especially with Kyubi. After all, they were just kids who were used and manipulated. Stein was not able to argue back on this revelation.
  • His fighting techniques draw the attention of the cybernetic samurai and mercenary Samuel Rodrigues, who proceed to challenge Stain to a duel to see if he was as good as he claimed. The battle was a fierce one but in the end both were at a stalemate and concluded in neither winning. However, Samuel has heard of Stain's philosophy about heroes and certainly agrees with him, given that he abandoned being a hero precisely because he wasn't heroic himself.
  • As bad as he thinks his world's Hero society is, it could easily be much worse...and a world that exemplifies that is the Hero Association of Saitama's universe. That Hero Association, while originally founded for noble purposes, soon degraded into just another corrupt corporation/business that is woefully ineffective at handling threats. Stain was furious to learn of this, and made enemies with the associated deities:
    • Saitama himself. While he is noble and has his heart in the right place, Stain can't get past how Saitama wanted to be a hero for fun and started out as a Blood Knight who soon became bored with his immense power, lacking the convictions that Stain holds dear. While Saitama is creeped out by Stain, he does hope that the Hero-Killer can provide a good fight, as much like Saitama, Stain's combat prowess comes from his own training regiment. Plus, he's reminded of the unascended Garo.
    • Genos, as he started off as wanting revenge on the cyborg who destroyed his home until meeting Saitama. Genos considers Stain to be a madman, and has sworn to defeat him, putting the two at odds regardless. It doesn't help that Genos also sounds a lot like Tenya Iida, the boy that wanted to avenge his brother and almost got killed for it.
    • Fubuki, as Stain loathes how she created the Blizzard Group, which only served to divide the Hero Association into groups and gangs. He has sworn to kill her in order to rectify this, and of course...
    • ...Stain became enemies with Tatsumaki in a heartbeat. Tatsumaki, in his eyes, is an exemplification of a false hero. She's just as much of a Blood Knight as Saitama, she bullies weaker heroes, is extremely immature for her age, and helped contribute to the poor structure of the Hero Association. Hell, in Stain's eyes she might even be a worse Number 2 Hero than Endeavor himself. Tatsumaki, for her part, has sworn to kill Stain for daring to threaten her younger sister, not caring about Stain's rather valid criticisms, which has only added fuel to the fire and made the two out to utterly destroy one another.
  • Stain once had a run-in with Adam Taurus in the halls of the House of Philosophy.The faunus was searching for allies and found one with him. After a bit of discussion about their similar viewpoints on life, Adam agreed to go after Izuku Midoriya and Shouto Todoroki. In exchange, Stain offered to take on Blake Belladonna's allies. He promised to leave her to Adam, though.

  • Foil to: Embryo
  • Kuroto Dan is the 2nd CEO of the gaming company Genm Corp. who provided the Gamer Drivers and the Rider Gashats to the Cyber Rescue team of Seito University Hospital to combat the Bugsters, video game-themed monsters born from a Millennium Bug. In reality, he is a narcissistic sociopath who orchestrates the Zero Day, a tragic event where he spreads the Bugster Virus acrss Japan that causes alot of deaths throughout its infectees. He manipulates both the CR and the Bugsters in order to complete the "ultimate game" Kamen Rider Chronicle, where ordinary people must fight the Bugsters or else, they will get killed if they received a Game Over. On top of that, he has a massive dosed of God Complex due to his genius intellect in regards of creating his video games and his inventions to the point of seeing others as a bunch of lowly sinners. Even after his revival and switching sides temporarily, he still referred himself as a god as he refused to repent all the crimes he commit just to achieve godhood.
  • As he ascends in the pantheon, a purple-colored pipe with the word "Continue" with it has appeared out of nowhere as he ascends from the pipe with a glee on his face. The first thing he did in the pantheon, he introduced himself with the words "I am Kuroto Dan, KAMI DA!".
  • Although he is a Toku villain, he refused to join SHOCKER, as he doesn't like to provide his inventions to the terrorist organization since this is part of his Berserk Button and he don't want to associate with them, such as their employed members like Ryoma Sengoku & Tenjuro Banno, and their Trollkaiger allies, knowing that they will use them in a far eviler way. Because of this, he ended up becoming their enemy as he is now on the run from them ever since.
    • Due to this event, he ended up befriending another former villain by the name of Monaca Towa, who was also being opposed by SHOCKER for abandoning her villainous ways. The former leader of Warriors of Hope seems to get an interest in the video games he made, as Monaca would like to play it at some time.
  • While he aligned himself to the Cyber Rescue team just to deal with bigger threats, such as his father, who transformed into Kamen Rider Cronus, Kuroto's relations with Emu and his allies are still rocky, considering he was the first big threat they dealt with. Although he would team up with them if their on the same page in regards of dealing with the same enemies, Emu still resolve to stop him if he tries to cause any trouble again.
  • Believed it or not, he may be an aspiring Killer Game Master, but he still loves his mother, as his desire to complete Kamen Rider Chronicle all by himself is the reason why he wanted to revive his mother as a Bugster so that she could live without the reliance of Doctors.
    • This reason made him an alliance with Kurei because of their high respect on their mothers despite of their depravity while he ended up making enemies with alot of Killer Game Masters in the process.
    • The only exception of that rule is Ragyo Kiryuin because he knows what kind of parent she is to the point of molesting her own daughters.
  • Detests Nobuyuki Sugou, most likely how he reminded of himself during his early career as a villain. However, the other reason why he doesn't like Sugou's guts is because of the latter's crimes in regards of his attempted rape towards a certain girl named Asuna, which Kuroto is not very fond of it. He also detests the likes of Light Yagami and Yoshikage Kira, while he reminded them of himself, he just cannot stand how their actions are far worse than wat he did.
  • Has gained a rivalry with Seto Kaiba, as both are egotistic CEOs of their respective corporation specialized in games. Kaiba became distraught of Kuroto upon finding out his past of being neglected by his father, but he would never condone Kuroto's actions because Kaiba's motivations to give children a place to have fun, which clashes with Kuroto's superiority. While Kaiba is aware of Kuroto's status as a Kamen Rider, he made a point to challenge the Genm Corp. CEO in a Duel Monsters card game to see who will prevail among the two of them, which Kuroto eagerly accepts.
  • He also made a rivalry with the egotistic servant Gilgamesh since both of them only care about themselves and themselves only. In fact, he can actually stand toe-to-toe against the King of Heroes with his God Maximum Gamer power-wise and everybody starts placing bets on who would win in this legendary clash of egos.
  • At one point, Kuroto was a High Priest to Junko Enoshima after the despair freak herself was thrilled by his actions of giving despair to his victims. However, he ended up stepping down in his position after he pulled a Hazy Feel Turn and dropping his hope-crushing ways, causing Junko to severe ties with him as she is enraged of losing an apprentice figure once again.
    • Speaking of Junko's apprentices, his opinion towards Tsumugi Shirogane is nothing but contempt, considering that she is in the same league as Junko.
  • Due to his rider form being a dark counterpart to The Hero, Kuroto is often seen being associates with Jeanne Alter and Saber Alter, as he act himself as a buffer between the two all thanks to their opposite personalities.
  • Although he isn't a doctor much like Emu and despite being the instigator of the Bugster Virus during his villainous streak, he became enemies with the likes of Nurgle, Typhus and Thrax due to their atrocities are far worse than how the Bugsters, as well as himself, would do to every infectees.
  • Has found a kindred spirit towards Shiro Kanzaki since both created their respective Rider Systems not just due to their ulterior motives, but rather due to them trying to save someone dear to them.
  • Amanda Waller has been keep an eye on him since she gained an interest of using him and his abilities for her own gain. It doesn't take long for him to have a grudge on her considering he had a bad expererience of being a Boxed Crook back then.
  • Due to his God Complex, Kuroto is often seen as the antithesis to Embryo since the latter doesn't think himself of being a god. Despite this, he doesn't like Embryo due to his atrocities against women, which he points out that he is far worse than Lovelica Bugster, who is also a Casanova with some standards.
  • Ever since he regained his sanity before his final death, people have questioned his right to godhood, especially since he joined the GUAG. The Court Of the Gods ruled that for now, he would remain because he is still mostly known for his God Complex. Moreover, his God Complex behaviour had returned in a certain timeline where he attempts to become a king due to the time alterations caused the Time Jackers.
  • "I am Kamen Rider Genm. KAMI DA!"

    Monsoon 
Monsoon, God of Memetic Philosophy (Memesoon, Snailsoon, Donsoon)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/revmon_286.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His visored helmet, with Dystopia (his twin sais) crossed over it.
  • Theme Song: The Stains Of Time
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil but very Chaotic in battle.
  • Portfolio: Cyborg Ninja, Ninja Run, Detachment Combat, Straw Nihilist, The Social Darwinist, Implied Childhood spent in War, That One Boss, White Hair, Black Heart, Malevolent Masked Men, Sai Guys, Standing at 6'8, Fluent in Khmer, Chinese, and English, MAGNETIC POWER!
  • Domains: Philosophy, Memes, Magnetism, Nature, Cyborgs
  • Allies:
  • Rivals: Pyrrha Nikos, Elektra Natachios, Mikoto Misaka, Might Guy
  • Enemies: Solid Snake, Bladewolf, Dr. Hal Emmerich, Ms. Fortune, Night Raid, 2B
  • Annoyed by: Deadpool and any fourth wall breaking entity.
  • Odd Friendship: Lord Voldemort, The Crypt Keeper
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Samuel Rodriguez
  • Oppossed by: All the Sword wielders in the Pantheon.
  • Friendly Enemy: Peacock
  • Evil Counterpart to: Suiseiseki and Souseiseki
  • Worthy Opponent: Raiden
  • Admires: House of Nature
  • A member of the Winds Of Destruction and the one partly responsible for bringing out Raiden's Superpowered Evil Side after years of dormancy. Even after losing against Raiden, Monsoon is still interested in learning Jack's motives more thoroughly.
    • His ascension was possible by Armstrong pulling the strings for behind the scenes to get him in. Altough the Court of Gods weren't happy that another of Armstrong's Goons had entered the Pantheon, they nonetheless allowed him to stay in the House of Philosophy given his position with "The Memes".
  • Don't understimate him. As nihilistic and Philosophical as he is, he is actually is quite a formidable fighter. Many of the Swordfighters he has faced in Combat, DESPISE him because of his unnatural ability to dodge all the sword attacks (And let's not get started on his magnetic abilities). Raiden could only stand a chance against him because he has awakened his Ripper persona at the right time.
  • He managed to impress Magneto of all people with his Magnetic capabilities and decided to learn more about the cyborg. Monsoon on his part has a great amount of respect for Erik and find the nature of his powers Amazing.
    • Other people who managed to caught his attention were Pyrrha Nikos and Mikoto Misaka for their display in their Magnetic abilities. He has come to blows with both to test their powers and he was not dissapointed in them.
  • He sympathizes with Peacock, because at it's turns out, they both have dark backstories and suffered major injuries and as a result were rebuilt as Cyborgs. However, she has heard rumors that he was involved in Human traficking before becoming a Cyborg and that didn't sat well with her. Nonetheless, they both seem to enjoy their Goofiness and Monsoon is really interested in her "Cartoonish Memes"
  • One instance, he was challenged by Ms. Fortune because as it turns out , Peacock just wanted to annoy him. Since Ms. Fortune and Monsoon have similar abilities, the resulting battle was drawn out enough that the two declared a brief ceasefire and agreed to not talk about what happenned.
  • He is a frequent visitor of the House of Nature and he is fascinated with its enviroments and sightings. However, he has a weird admiration for Cherry Blossoms, which Armstrong finds stupid.
  • Was weirded out when he heard Lord Voldemort sounding just like him. They get along pretty well, and Monsoon want to learn what is Voldemort motivations for why he turned that way.
    • For the same reason as above, Might Guy has declared himself Monsoon's rival. While he isn't particularly bothered by Guy's fighting style, he finds his ideal about youth very interesting.
    • He once was invited by the Crypt Keeper to tell one of his horror stories. Surprisingly, monsoon can replicate his voice almost perfectly, which the Latter finds really amusing.
  • Is annoyed whenever other gods assume that his title refers to Internet memes. Especially Deadpool, who never stops spouting Internet memes at him Monsoon generally considers these types of memes juvenile, but a good example of his beliefs on human behavior anyway. Ironically, he himself seems to be becoming a internet meme much to his own chagrin.
    • The most hilarious thing about all of this mess, is that Deadpool can replicate Monsoon's voice flawlessly, which greatly annoys the cyborg.
  • Was recently informed that he was not the only God of Memetic Philosophy, sharing this portfolio with Suiseiseki and Souseiseki. Was a little annoyed at this, but figured that being their evil counterpart is good enough.
    • Later he heard that the Doll twins were being moved and were getting their title changed. Monsoon couldn't help but grin with joy.
  • Many claim that his Theme Song is pretty cool, but he has received some mixed accusations that his song promotes other things:
    • He also received various covers of his song, which amused him. In his opinion, the best ones are the stylish one and the Kazoo one.
  • Used to be a member of the GUAE, but since his boss Armstrong has joined GUAC, he has tagged along with them. Monsoon is particularly interested to learn the motivations of some of the members of the mornigstar battalion and see their "Memes" unfold.
  • He surprisingly gets along pretty well with General Esdeath after hearing her motivations and having a similar background. In turn, Esdeath agrees with his Philosophy and finds him a formidable fighter that managed to gave her a run for her money. However, Monsoon cannot understand the drastic change in behaviour she has when she sees her "lover", Tatsumi. This Particularly "Meme" of her reminds him a little of his comrade Mistral. This of course meant that he was another potential threat to Night Raid.
  • "Free will is a myth. Religion is a joke. We are all pawns of something even greater: memes, the DNA of the soul...."

Lesser Gods

    Charlie Barkin 
Charlie B. Barkin, God of Those Who Don't Like Heaven (Charles)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/648730_9273121_adgth_schemingcharlie.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His life watch
  • Theme Song: "Let Me Be Surprised", "It's Too Heavenly Here"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral —> Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Thinking heaven is overrated, loving the unpredictability of life, Jerk with a Heart of Gold, starts as a scoundrel, eventually evolves to genuinely care and sacrifice himself for a little orphan girl, dying for real at the end of the first film
  • Domains: Canines, Death, Resurrection, the Afterlife, Orphans, Greed, Hedonism, Unpredictability
  • Heralds: Itchy, Sasha, Anne-Marie, David
  • Superior: Don Bluth
  • Allies: King Gator, Mrs. Brisby, Fievel Mousekewitz, Littlefoot and co., Chanticleer, Sara Crewe, Pippi Longstocking, Baloo and Bagheera, Hachiko, Iggy, Gintoki Sakata, House of Family
  • Enemies: YHVH, Lucifer, Dhuum
  • Annoyed by: Cosmos
  • Charlie Barkin is a German Shepherd and formerly a scoundrel whose questionable choice of friends resulted in his being murdered. All dogs go to heaven, so that's where he went despite not really deserving it. However, Charlie wasn't impressed with how predictable and regulated heaven was, and he also wanted revenge for his murder, so he escaped back to life. Letting go of his selfish desires to help an orphan girl was what made him truly worthy of heaven (though he's still not impressed with it). Later, in another bid to escape heaven and have fun on Earth, he accepted a divine mission to retrieve a precious item and would incidentally become a guardian angel to a runaway boy and guide him home. For this he was rewarded with a new chance at the mortal life he loves so much.
  • When Cosmos offered him a spot in the Pantheon for his famous distaste for heaven, he almost turned it down because he thought the Pantheon was going to be just as boring and predictable as heaven. He decided to give it a shot when Cosmos told him that he could have a trial and see how he likes the Pantheon before deciding. Charlie soon discovered that his assumptions were very wrong and that the Pantheon was actually an extremely entertaining place filled with surprises. Thus he accepted becoming a god to experience it all for himself.
    • Regarding Charlie's opinion of Cosmos, she reminds him an awful lot of Annabelle, the angelic Whippet who greets new arrivals into heaven. It's mostly how Cosmos is very preachy about the importance of being good. Just like Annabelle, though, Charlie thinks she's okay on a good day.
  • King Gator was over the moon when he learned his good friend with the amazing voice had ascended. He's looking forward to making lots of music together. Charlie still finds his very being incredibly confusing and overwhelming, but the huge and powerful gator is handy to have around in a pinch, so Charlie humors him.
  • Not wanting to be separated from his mortal friends like what happened the first time he went to heaven, he made sure to make them his heralds so they could visit him any time they wanted. He took special care to fulfil his promise to Anne-Marie that they'd see each other again.
  • Protecting and helping a little orphan girl and a runaway boy got him praised as a "good boy" by the House of Family, which also showered him with great blessings. He is especially popular in the sub-House of Children.
    • He also became good friends with Baloo and Bagheera since they also have a history of protecting a human child. Charlie gets along better with the more laidback and fun-loving Baloo and finds Bagheera to be too uptight (but then what do you expect from a cat?). Charlie has also decided to introduce Baloo to Gator since he thinks the two would find each other really groovy (and he figures that finding more musically-gifted friends for Gator would take some of the pressure off him). He wasn't wrong.
    • This also informs his attitude towards some of his fellow Bluth deities, namely Fievel and Littlefoot, who suffered many harships when the former got lost from his family and the latter saw his mother die. Charlie is protective of them as a result.
    • Other orphan deities who hit his soft spot include Sara Crewe and Pippi Longstocking. Though Charlie thinks that Pippi needs no help at all after seeing how she's perfectly capable of fending for herself.
  • One of the songs in his repertoire, "What's Mine Is Yours", is quite a hit with the young kids of the Pantheon and he sings it whenever he's visiting the Children and Offsprings Houses and brings pizza. But when Charlie tried singing it to convince some greedier members of the House of Commerce to turn a new leaf, it failed miserably, and now said members kind of hate him for it. The failure is attributed to the song frankly tasting like diabetes and thus it really only has an effect on children. Plus, since it's Charlie singing it, it's not really convincing.
  • Charlie hates YHVH's ideal vision for the world since it amounts to making the world as safe, predictable and unexciting as possible. He didn't escape heaven twice to see the mortal world become a copy of it. YHVH hates Charlie right back for scorning His ideals and for rejecting eternal salvation.
  • That aforementioned mission from heaven was to retrieve an item known as Gabriel's Horn, which opens heaven's gates, from the hands of the devil. This has scored him points with the Archangel Gabriel, who's grateful to him for retrieving such a holy item with her namesake, despite the fact that she's YHVH's minion. Compared to the rest of YHVH's subordinates, she goes easy on him.
  • Charlie heard of YHVH's greatest foe, Lucifer, and thought that, with his ideals of absolute freedom and exploring untapped potential, he seemed like a swell guy and much more reasonable than YHVH. But some time later Charlie came to realize exactly what Lucifer's world would entail, so he decided to leave him. As he puts it, Lucifer's ideal world was less exciting and more terrifying. Not to mention it'd set demons loose and Charlie has had bad experiences with those.
  • Since Charlie succeeded in coming back to life as himself in his home universe, this makes him a target of Dhuum's and the death god chases him across the Pantheon to see that Charlie experiences death for good.
  • Often seen hanging out with the silver-haired samurai Gintoki. It's been noted that although they're both jerks, love alcohol, gambling and easy money, they'll do the right thing and help those in need. The two met at one of the Pantheon's bars and Gintoki deadpanned that he should probably quit booze because he thought he was seeing Patrasche ordering some for himself. He badgered Charlie a bit about how he was going to disappoint Nello if the boy found out his dog had turned into an alcoholic until Charlie got annoyed and barked at him that he had no idea what he was talking about. Despite this they somehow hit it off and were walking home arm-in-arm by the end of the night, presumably after stopping by a casino.
  • Is in good terms with most dogs in the Pantheon (Charlie even gives a chance to those who're not exactly good as long as they're not completely irrational beasts). Before ascending he was one of Hachiko's followers, and the Akita dog commends Charlie's will to protect and loyalty to Anne-Marie and David. He also became good friends with Iggy after the otherwise aloof dog learned about what he did for those kids.
  • Despite Charlie not being a fan of heaven (well, his world's heaven), he has shown interest in other worlds' heavens. One such interest was when he heard about how Heaven (okay, the Celestial Realms) worked in the world of Order of the Stick. What got his attention was the fact that there was still adventuring to be had there and that the idea of heaven was that you would no longer feel boredom anymore. Charlie wondered if this meant he'd ever get tired of the chaos of the mortal world or if one had to be mortal to be bored in the first place.

    Rorschach 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rorschach_gibbons.png
Rorschach, God of the Nietzschian Abyss (Walter Kovacs)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A black inkblot on a white background
  • Theme: The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning; alternatively, Desolation Row
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (insists he's Lawful Good)
  • Portfolio: Personality-altering trauma, anti-heroes, disturbing speeches, improvised weaponry, being Darker and Edgier, sliding way, way over to the cynical side of the sliding scale, death-seeking, Becoming the Mask, never giving up - not even in the face of Armageddon.
  • Domains: Madness, Justice, Shades of Conflict, Determination, Masks
  • Herald: Reginald "Reggie" Long
  • Allies: Nite Owl II... and that's probably it.
  • Enemies: Many, but especially Tyler Durden (his lustful, anarchic, Nietzsche Wannabe antithesis), with whom he has a territorial dispute. Has made a particular effort to ward off members of the House of Love.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The Punisher, Silk Spectre
  • Former Friends: Ozymandias, Dr. Manhattan, The Comedian
  • Pestered by: Deadpool
  • Lurks on the far side of the Abyss, to which all Nietzsche Wannabes eventually come. He records their reactions in his journal, frequently making disgusted noises, and pushing in the nihilists (a philosophical abyss is, in some ways, better than an elevator shaft). If they want him to talk, he'll talk, even if he doesn't like them. They are his only visitors... aside from Deadpool, who still wants to do that sitcom.
    • Nite Owl finally ascending at least gives Rorschach a reason to wander in more populated environments, specially to reform their old partnership when they beat up some evil deities. Dan's current girlfriend Laurie, the Silk Spectre, is one of the few women Rosrchach is willing to respect and downright collaborate with.
  • Regards Superman with supreme mistrust, and is disgusted by most other costumed heroes. However, while he muttered direly about artists and liberals upon meeting Captain America, he will respond to slurs on the good Captain's name with extreme violence.
  • While he dislikes that The Punisher uses guns instead of his bare hands to punish criminals, the two have an uneasy truce due to their fondness of staring into the Abyss. At one point they accidently switched (War) Journals, no one noticed until Deadpool pointed out that their journal monologue boxes were the wrong colour.
  • Even if he left his mortal coil in 1986, has shown a fondness for The Smashing Pumpkins, and even uses one of their songs as a theme. While it was written for a Batman movie, The Dark Knight sees no problem, as he finds the lyrics to fit Rorschach and is still wishing to forget said movie.
  • Is on bad terms with the fellow Watchmen deities, Ozymandias for concocting that plan, and Dr. Manhattan for not only agreeing, but causing his death. Learning Jon had rebooted the entire DC Multiverse didn't help at all. While Rorschach has a begrudging respect to the Comedian, he can't look past all of Edward's morally reprehensible actions (raping Silk Spectre, shooting a pregnant prostitute).
  • Doesn't understand why people compare him to Freddy Krueger, who he considers one of the filthiest people in the Pantheon.

    Samwise "Sam" Gamgee 
Samwise "Sam" Gamgee, God of Simple-Minded Wisdom
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/220px-Sam_8022.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A small elf-sword laid on a coil of rope
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Act of True Love, Beware the Nice Ones, Blood Brothers, The Everyman, Fire-Forged Friends, Earn Your Happy Ending, Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass, Incorruptible Pure Pureness, Jumped at the Call, The Not-Love Interest, The Power of Friendship, The Reliable One, Undying Loyalty
  • Domains: Friendship, Good, Hardship, Knowledge
  • Superior: J. R. R. Tolkien
  • Allies: Aragorn, Spyro, Frodo, Bilbo, Gandalf J.D. and Turk, Mike and Sulley, Jak and Daxter, Rand Al'Thor, Tokugawa Ieyasu
  • Rivals: Raistlin Majere
  • Enemies: Belkar, Warboss Ghazghkull
  • Opposed By: Sauron and by extension Melkor
  • Annoyed with: Jay and Silent Bob
  • Odd Friendship: Thrall
  • Served a ceremonious title in the House of Friendship for a long time, partially due to his friendship with Frodo that is matched by very few. Alas, it was time for him to take up a true title for himself. The House suggested to honor him for his incredible wisdom, guiding Frodo through Mordor to destroy the ring.
  • Tokugawa Ieyasu wished he could find a spot for the hobbit, but ultimately failed on that regard. Still, he allows Sam to visit the House any time he wants. Sam even helps out any new deities who manage to land a spot there.
    • The entire Fellowship was responsible for the push for his move, a part of a restructure project to increase their followers. They hope to bring more of their members into the fray.
    • Sauron long sought to remove the hobbit from the Pantheon, still GREATLY DISPLEASED with his role in destroying the ring. Now he would have to settle with destroying him. This hatred extends to Melkor himself.
  • He was shortly met by Tolkien, his creator. The man who gave birth to fantasy congratulated him in finding his new home.
  • His ascension was actually a rather sad affair, because he discovered that for once he came to a place where Mr. Frodo can't follow. The Heroes are currently searching for a spot to put Frodo.
    • Happily, they have succeeded. Frodo (and his uncle Bilbo) are now in the House of Otherness; the reunion was a joyous, tearful one as the two hobbit friends embraced each other, laughing merrily.
  • Before his dear friend's ascension, Sam thought one day that he had heard Mr. Frodo's voice, but it turned out that he'd mistaken Spyro for his friend, since they sound similar. Spyro befriended Sam after this and has promised to help find a position in the Pantheon for Frodo.
  • One day, his temple was vandalized with red paint. That "paint" turned out to be blood. Simple detective work determined the perpetrator to Belkar. A black sheep among the hobbit community, he has been the sharpest critic of their friendship. Since then, the halfling has lessened his animosity with the two as a result of Character Development, especially in Sam's cooking skills. Though if you would say that to his face he would disembowel you and use your body for Mr. Scruffle's kitty litter.
  • Are in good terms with every couple who claimed the title Life-Long Friendship. Sam only regrets how much trouble that temple went through, causing two changes in power. Sam would used his temple as refuge during the turmoil. The current holders welcome Sam and Frodo into their temple at any time as thanks.
  • Naturally distrusts orcs, especially those who follow Warboss Ghazghkull's brand of orcs who hassled his group throughout the trip towards Mordor. He does acknowledge that not all orcs are evil, which is why he spearheaded forming good relations with Thrall in the hopes of drawing more orcs to his ranks.
  • Most fantasy deities respect him for his actions. Raislin is not that kind of person. Even if he admits his journey with the Heroes of the Lance draw some comparisons, he would consider the hobbit an ally of his. Samwise decided to let him be. Not everyone needs to praise him.
  • Rand Al'Thor on the other hand was moved with his journey, offering up his services whenever he has the chance to. Rand has grown fond of that certain philosophy, one that he hopes to follow.
  • May well be the only other deity that can match Jeremiah Gottwald when it comes to Undying Loyalty to a friend, helping Frodo to go through all sorts of torment to destroy the ring.
  • Some remain unimpressed with their journey. Criticism was led by a mortal named Randall, who not only downplayed their adventure, but accuse the two of Ho Yay among the two. While some of their followers balk at the thought, Sam merely wears it on his sleeve, claiming their relationship as such.
  • Sam was not pleased with how Jay and Silent Bob belittled their quest to destroy the One Ring, an adventure that lead to the death of one of his collegues and the agony of them all. He also doesn't understand the way Jay and Silent Bob were mocking his relationship with Frodo. Of course those two would stick together to the bitter end, it didn't matter to them if others felt it was gay.

    V 
V, God of Unkillable Ideas (The Man from Room Five, Codename V,The Terrorist, The Villain)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/v_for_vendetta_wp_66089-1920x1200_2525.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His Guy Fawkes mask and a circled letter "V".
  • Theme: 1812 Overture
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: You Cannot Kill An Idea, Bomb Throwing Anarchist, The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized, Anarchy Is Chaos, Coat, Hat, Mask, Black Cloak Knife Nut, MacGyvering, Playful Hacker, Mad Bomber, Only Known By His One-Letter Name, Cultured Badass, Knight Templar, Genius Bruiser, The Chessmaster, Roaring Rampage of Revenge, Sociopathic Hero, Added Alliterative Appeal.
  • Domains: Anarchy, Revolutions, Theatrics
  • Herald: Evey Hammond, his pupil and successor as "V".
  • Allies: Deadpool, Tyler Durden, Omastar (preferably the Lord Helix incarnation), The Shadow, Lelouch Vi Britannia, Edmond Dantes, The House of Explosives (specially Tavish Degroot)
  • Rivals: Rorschach, Batman, Gabriel, Zaheer
  • Enemies: All the Tyrannical Figures (specially Big Brother), The Grand United Alliance of Law,, Judge Dredd, Agent Smith, Red Skull, Malthael, Light Yagami, The God-Emperor of Mankind, Jerid Messa
  • Respects: Kamina, Padmé Amidala, Elrond, Ozymandias
  • Respected By: DedSec San Francisco, Aiden Pierce
  • Opposes: George Washington, Lucio Correia dos Santos
  • Ascended after managing to bring down the Norsefire Government in two years by assassinating and psychologically destabilizing their leaders, blowing up key propaganda monuments and headquarters, and goading the population of England to rise up and fight the fascist government.
    • He's found a place in the Grand United Alliance of Chaos, specifically in The Chaos Brigade. Although V is a staunch advocate of freedom, he realizes that society still needs order which contradicts Lucifer's end game. Nonetheless, V and Lucifer agree in saying that YHVH winning would be the worst thing to happen to everyone.
  • V used to be the God of Anarchism in the ancient Chaos House before he disappeared as a result of the creation of the Grand United Alliances (of Good, Evil, Law, Chaos, and Destruction). Dedicated followers, scattered all over the Pantheon, swept it for a trace of his whereabouts. When he was finally found, he was brought to the Court of the Gods, and was given his new title, because not only is he best known for the trope, his followers' dedication proved it further: his temple may have been "swept under the rug", but the idea of his existence resulted in him being found once again.
  • V makes it no secret that he wants to bring down the House of Leadership (in particular, he sends bombs to the Tyrannical Figures subhouse every day). He plans to convince some Gods to abandon their titles, but knows that the majority of them won't. Likewise, the House of Royalty is one of his targets.
  • One of his favorite houses is Explosives, where he found common ground with just about everyone who likes blowing stuff (V and The Demoman have been seen making bombs and exploding them just for fun), and has been suspected of trying to approach Karna to employ his powers in a revolution scheme.
  • Made friends out of Tyler Durden, who also feels terrorism is a great way to improve society, Lelouch, a fierce opposer of evil empires who also uses a "V" for a symbol, and Deadpool, who seems to enjoy chaos more than anything.
  • V is a good friend and ally to Lelouch, due to their mutual history of rebelling against an oppressive system, ability to cross the Moral Event Horizon to reach their respective goals, and penchant for doing everything in a smart and overdramatic way. Lelouch says that V has the nicer Cool Mask, but V retorts that “Zero”’s Badass Cape is the better one. Nonetheless, they do have opposing views on how to govern and agree to disagree for now.
  • Known for his flourished speech, V has taken a liking for Kamina and has asked him to attempt an alliteration-heavy boast like V's own.
  • A Cultured Badass, V was ecstatic to meet Shakespeare, and especially Edmond Dantes, as The Count of Monte Cristo is his favorite movie and a strong inspiration for his revenge plots. The Shadow, whose getup is closely followed by V, has also gotten a visit.
  • Due to a common connection, V met the Watchmen. He was impressed with how Ozymandias managed to succeed by thinking very outside the box, could not get along with Dr. Manhattan's detached nature and The Comedian's lack of morals, and became a rival to Rorschach: while both are mentally unstable vigilantes, Rorschach seeks to uphold the law through chaotic means while V seeks to tear it down.
  • Although V isn't as skilled a hacker as other Gods, he is nonetheless admired by San Francisco Dedsec, and some member of the GUAG White Hats like Shiena Kenmochi, Lisbeth Salander, Morpheus or Aiden Pierce for hacking the central computer Fate of the Norsefire Government and even trolling the leader Adam Susan by making him believe Fate was falling in love with him.
    • Seeing how pathetically out of shape Lelouch is, V has offered him a pair of dumbbells for his birthday, quoting the Greek philosopher Thales: "A sound mind in a sound body." Lelouch tried to lift them once, strained his arms, and wisely put them away somewhere.
  • V has entertained a rivalry with Gabriel, God of Ironic Retribution over their tendency to kill enemies in an ironic way, although Gabriel disapproves of V's wish to destroy society.
    • V is also at odds with Zaheer as while both are Knife Nuts wishing to tear down the government in order for a better one to rise in its place, the Airbender wishes to abolish it altogether forever.
    • Things have also gotten complicated with Batman, given his nightly protector of the innocent with a strict no-kill code leads to great moral clashes. Still, V admires how he and Dark Knight operate with strong theatrical motifs.
  • In his downtime, V has accepted invitations by the House of Sports to attend tournaments of fencing (where most competitors are skilled enough to counter when V decides to fight dirty) and throwing knives.
  • Respected by fellow deities who were survivors of horrible scientific experiments (mostly, those in the Genetic Engineering house), who know from personal experience that V has a reason to be so rebellious.
  • As an anarchist, he's a staunch opposer of many Lawful deities, especially the Grand United Alliance of Law. One particular enemy on the top of his shitlist, greater than YHVH, is Big Brother.
    • Whenever someone mentions Big Brother or the Party, V slightly but noticeably becomes more serious and somber. Many take it as Big Brother being his personal Berserk Button, but a few theorize that V is actually horrified as the dictator and his Party are his own country could become if a dictatorship could take hold. V and Big Brother are antitheses, opposed by their views on the supposed immortality of ideas, and both are conscious that they are more symbols than individual who perpetuate two opposite ideals. While Big Brother and the Party are confident they can erase freedom from the minds of men, and have done so for decades, V also points out that for all their efforts, the Ministry of Love has never stopped receiving potential rebels.
    • The only Lawful deity V opens an exception for is Padme, as she looks exactly like his pupil Evey. However, V keeps his distance from her, knowing he's likely not to survive if the Skywalker family turns on him.
  • Upon learning that Lord Helix was the deity of an anarchic cult, V instantly grew a liking to Omastar.
  • V has also shown great contempt for advocates of despotism (Light) and lack of free will (Malthael), and enforcers for these kind of people (Jerid). On the other hand, idealists such as Lucio find him too radical.
  • To V's chagrin, two deities who sound like him are Red Skull, an actual Nazi, and Agent Smith, who decided to combine his rebellion against the system with assimilative totalitarianism. V gives Elrond a pass even if he's for all intents and means an authority figure.
  • V tried to recruit Jinx to his cause, unsuccessfully to say the least. He now dismisses her as a fellow goddess for wasting her time in senseless mayhem while his actions are all calculated to contribute the best to his goals. For her part, Jinx considers him a bore and says “V? Stands for stupid!” to his face (or should we say mask?).
  • The House of Celebration has called off any commemoration of Firework Night because they don't want to stir up V too much, and he's been a little too vocal about blowing something up to celebrate the Fifth of November, risking giving a bad name to the whole House.

Top to bottom: Will, Isabella, Brenner
  • Demideities, with Isabella as borderline Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: The Brenner's Wolves emblem
  • Theme Song: We Will Prevail (Will), Hope Never Dies (Brenner), Lost Memories
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: The Apocalypse Brings Out the Best in People, Leaving No One Behind
  • Domains: Warfare, Hope
  • Heralds: Brenner's Wolves/12th Independent Legion, Dr. Morris, the Lazurian/Zephyrian Army, Penny
  • Followers: Future Mai, Oskar Schindler, Chief Naohiro Usui, Evan Cousins/Max Damage, Harry Lime, Larry Underwood, the town of Grantville, Jake Green, Bellamy Blake, Groose
  • Allies: Lin, Sonja, Andy, Colin, Grit, Max, Olaf, Paragon!Commander Shepard, Shido Itsuka, Link, Hal Jordan/Green Lantern, Optimus Prime, the Sole Survivor (when they're on positive karma), the Tactician, Robin, Corrin, the Guardians
  • Enemies: any instigators of apocalypses, evil scavengers like Immortan Joe, Red Skull, Mori Motonari, war profiteers like Sundowner, Doomfist, the Corpus, the Elksini
  • Often, apocalypses bring out the absolute worst in people, make manifest the dark secrets most folks otherwise hide when law and order looms over their shoulder. And then there are those who strive to do the right thing despite all of that, or because their dark secret is the desire to be a hero. Either way, the Court of the Gods found the 12th Independent Legion, also known as Brenner's Wolves, fitting for the title. Its leader, Will, and his companion Isabella were chosen to be the representative deities.
    • But what of the man whom the group is named after? Well, the House of Life and Death fixed that quick and brought the good captain Brenner back, resulting in a joyful reunion between the three. And after hearing what Will accomplished, Brenner couldn't be more proud of Will.
    • Will then wondered why Lin hasn't joined them. The Court's answer was that she's following soon under a different title (and a partner).
  • It saddens them that there is a much bigger war being fought in the Pantheon, but at least overall conditions are better compared to the recovering planet they come from.
  • Their ascension earned them odd and cautious looks from those who remembered the time the original Nintendo Wars deities first ascended. And among the first to greet the legion were those deities (Andy, Colin, Grit, Max, Olaf). Relations were terse at first given how they regard war, but they eventually reconciled those differences.
    • The Fire Emblem deities find themselves less uncomfortable in their presence compared to the other Nintendo Wars deities, given that the horrors of war are taken more seriously in their world.
  • For mysterious reasons, whenever they're in battle, they have a War Room where commanders of all sides can meet up without getting physical against each other. It makes for some humorous interactions.
  • Unlike the Wars World deities, the COs of Brenner's Wolves can take to the field personally among one of their units, and as the unit they're with (be it a platoon or a company of vehicles) gets boosts depending on which CO it is, as well as a universal moderate boost in offensive and defensive power. When an enemy troop is eliminated within this radius, that radius slowly increases in range, and eventually enable them to use their CO Power. Unlike the Wars World deities, they only have one CO Power, no Super.
    • For Brenner, his power affects all units and gives an extra defense boost. His CO Power, Reinforce, in addition to the further slight boost that comes with it, recovers HP of all his troops.
    • For Will, his power affects only direct-attack ground units and gives an extra attack boost. His CO Power, Rally Cry, boosts movement for all direct-attack ground units under his command.
    • As for Isabella, her power affects all units and give them a minor attack and defense boost. Her CO Power, Deep Strike, not only boosts movement for all her units, but increased attack range for her ranged-attack units.
  • As those who all endured tragedy and hardships and came out better people for it; Will, Brenner, and Isabella came to befriend Paragon!Commander Shepard, Shido Itsuka, Link, Hal Jordan, Optimus Prime, and the Sole Survivor (when they're on positive karma). And their enemies became enemies of Brenner's Wolves as well.
    • Nukes in particular are also a sore spot, given Brenner met his end by one while buying his troops and the Lazurians time to escape from the New Rubinelle Army.
  • The three, Brenner especially, are impressed that the Tactician can score victories no matter the odds without losing even a single soldier. Outside of "cutscenes", that is. The best they could do was minimize casualties, but that's often the norm for any commander pulling off a non-reckless plan.
  • Given that they've had to deal with a virus/parasite/bio-weapon that infects its victims, and sprouts flowers all over their bodies when they die, which spread it further, the House of Plants isn't a place they're fond of hanging around, especially given some of its residents, like Poison Ivy.
  • Are digusted by Kirei Kotomine, who does believe that The Apocalypse Brings Out the Best in People. Problem is, he wants to instigate it and enjoys torturing humanity with misery and suffering to bring out that good potential.
    • They also opposed Doomfist (and therefore Talon), who genuinely believes that conflict will benefit humanity, the Corpus as they want to profit off of conflict for all its worth, and the Eliksni for scavenging the ruins of human civilization whilst having a callous regard for others, especially for mankind.
    • Corrolary to the last, they've also become allies with the Guardians as while many take a bit of a more lighthearted approach to war, they've been tasked to protect what remained of humanity, and they do so with the utmost efficiency, even defying what can be considered gods or fate itself.
  • Having been basically a database for information, Isabella can sympathize with what Chuck had to experience being the INTERSECT. Though unlike Isabella, who started as a Blank Slate save for her information, Chuck had a normal life before his forced involvement with the CIA began.
