  • Out of the darkness of people's hearts, an entity of pure evil was born. However it was not until over three thousand years ago it was summoned by Akhenaden, as a result of the blood sacrifice that formed the Millennium Items. Infecting the cursed artifacts with his essence, this being was known as Zorc Necrophades and sought the annihilation of all life. It took the Nameless Pharaoh to sacrifice himself and seal the abomination away forever. But a piece of Zorc would persist, in hopes of undoing his defeat.
  • The Spirit of the Millennium Ring is a merger of the souls of Thief King Bakura and Zorc, who worked to undo Yami Yugi's victory in the past. Unfortunately for him it allowed the Pharaoh to summon Holactie the Creator Of Light and finish him off once and for all, along with the lingering fragments. Meant to be Killed Off for Real, it was the Nyarlathotep who gave him an out and restored him to the pantheon. Zorc respects Nyarlathotep for being the elder heartless of humanity, and possibly his own progenitor.
  • Long ago he held the role of "God of Evil Darkness", however would fall out of favor and his position was taken by Chernabog. Now that Zorc has returned to the pantheon, a distinct rivalry has formed between the two demons. Usually they compete over how Obviously Evil they are and who better wields the power of darkness. He has a rivalry with Aku as well out of who is the superior God of Evil, though begrudgingly defers to Melkor on a number of evil matters.
  • Has a second dragon head, which sprouts from his crotch. It either spirals around his body in the manga or juts from his entire abdomen in the 4Kids dub. This does not stop it from looking any less phallic, especially since it breathes fire. Mara unleashed more dick jokes than Beavis and Butthead could keep up with. Zorc hates Mara for this, and will go berserk at anyone who makes dick jokes about him.
  • Keeps his profile to his face so it's harder for people to point out his phallic design. Tries his damndest to be intimidating due to his interpretation in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series. There, he's an Affably Evil and absent-minded goliath who doesn't understand the gravity of his destruction and is the main star for Zorc and Pals. Later on he replaced Zack in Zack and Cody. Don't mention this to him either. All though he has been forced to admit that when trapped in the Shadow Realm, everyone is totally naked, while many have questioned the exact purpose of this, many have concluded that it's simply for added amusement.
  • Being Made of Evil, he is inclined to associate with fellow evil entities like Mr Scratch and Janemba. Because he is an embodiment of human evil Zamasu argues that he, along with Nyarlathotep, are proof of the inherently evil nature of mortals. Zorc pays little attention to the rouge Kai however due to being a massive hypocrite that's just as bad, if not worse than him.
  • Because of his Made of Evil nature, he is vulnerable to Samurai Jack's blade. Given what his second head resembles, he fears Jack will go for that. He is also vulnerable to Killia, and possible Iroque due to her Heel–Face Brainwashing effects. Seems to be concerned about Tikal as she sealed herself and Perfect Chaos away for millennia, much like Yami Yugi did to him.
  • No longer the god of evil darkness, but darkness is a running theme with him. He can cause eclipses and was ultimately taken down by a deity of light. He and Zs'skayr are allied due to wanting to spread darkness across the Earth, and he finds the Ectonurite's Corrodium mutations amusing. Meanwhile Ezalor is poison for him due to his pure light being as devastating as Holactie.
  • He is the enemy of all Egyptian gods, especially Ra due him to being a malignant entity of hate, darkness and destruction. As the Egyptian God cards have a direct link to the Egyptian gods, there's a personal element especially with Ra due to his association with the sun and light. Apophis, however, is the exact kind of God of Evil that Zorc is like and the two are allies because of this.
  • Summoned by mass slaughter and atrocity, he is somewhat of an ally to villains associated or shaped by mass death. Like Thief King Bakura Shinobu Sensui and Rau Le Creuset are consumed by misanthropy, and hope to destroy mankind with his help. Weil is deeply misanthropic and knows a thing or two about hate plagues like Zorc, given his use of Omega and becoming an Artifact of Doom in Biometal W. Atrocitus meanwhile considers him something that needs to be cleaned up, knowing the anger atrocities have brought out all too well.

    Maui 
Maui, God of Tattoos With a Story (Demigod of the Wind and Sea, Hero of Man, Hero of Men and Women, Hero to All, Living Legend)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maui_3.png
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His magic fish hook and tattoos
  • Theme Song: You're Welcome
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Trickster Demigod, Wielder of a magical fish hook with the power of shapeshifting, Perform feats for humans like lassoing the sun to keep it still or pulling the islands, Tattoo-Covered body detailing his feats with a Mini-Maui, Expert Navigator, Strong and Large
  • Domains: Tattoos, Demigods, Hooks, Heroes
  • Allies: Moana, Lilo Pelekai and Stitch, Vulcan
  • Friendly Rivalry: Hercules, King Hippo
  • Enemies: Tamatoa, Shen Gaoren, Roadhog, Loki, SCP-1548, Ragnaros
  • Opposes: Discord
  • Opposed by: Gaea, Zeus
  • Avatar: The Rock
  • Maui was a prominent hero in Polynesian mythology, told throughout many people from the Maori to the native Hawaiians. His body is decorated with tattoos which tell of his many feats, including one with helping a young girl named Moana in returning the Heart of Te Fiti to its rightful place.
    • In addition to having tattoos drawn all over his body, they are capable of animating to show his feats and includes a mural of himself, known as Mini-Maui. He often acts as the conscience to the demigod, but most of the time, he doesn't listen to him.
    • Naturally, Moana was the first to greet him upon his arrival, and he in turn was amused to find out that she was now a demigod(dess) here.
  • He meets the Rock when he wanted to show his strength to others. Finding one that sound almost like him and showed some of his similar quirks like the People's Eyebrow, he got along with him.
    • He also challenged another demigod, Hercules, in some friendly competition as they respect with each equivalent strengths. Both found each other to be too far of the competition because of their demigod statuses.
    • He met another wrestler of Polynesian background, King Hippo. They are in good terms after a good brawl with each other.
  • With his magic fish hook, he has the power to transform into any creature as he wishes. His preferred form is that of a large bird, giving him an ability of flight over a large ocean.
  • He noticed a mortal man known as Roadhog who sometimes dresses to look like a Mauri warrior and even holding a hook much like his own. However, when he found out that he nearly harmed Moana when they first meet, Maui showed to be very hostile toward him.
  • Gaea isn't impressed with him because of his one act of stealing the Heart of Te Fiti so he could give it to the humans for the power of creating life. This act caused the fire demon Te Kā to emerge and cursed the island with darkness and decay for his insolence. Even after helping Moana return the heart back to her and making an apology to the goddess, Gaea isn't pleased with the demigod.
  • He doesn't like the large crab Shen Gaoren due to reminding him of Tamatoa who kept his hook as a trophy.
  • Though he has many tattoos which shows many of his accomplishments, one of his tattoos is a mural of his mortal parents throwing him in the ocean and the gods took him as a demigod. Because he was unloved by his mortal parents, he used his godlike powers to gift the humans so that he could feel wanted and loved that his parents didn't give.
  • While he is known as a trickster god, he outwit the gods and monsters which gifts the human, in addition, he tried to steal the Heart of Te Fiti and give it to the human. As the result, he doesn't like the tricksters that maliciously harm humans for the sake of self-amusement. Though Discord once point out that he (Maui) messed with Moana when they first met, especially the time he tricked her into a cave so that he could steal her boat. Maui tell him to shut it much to Discord's amusement.
  • Because of his deed of lassoing the sun to keep it still in order to extend the day, he was called upon when the SCP-1548 gets out of hand and tried to destroy the Earth. Because of his strength and his magic hook, he is capable of snaring the keter and beat it into submission when it resisted. The Hateful Star will not forget about its clash with Maui and will stay away from the Earth for the time being.
  • He found Ragnaros to be his challenge as the element is a creature of magma and fire like Te Kā.
  • He sympathizes with Vulcan when his parent, Juno, doesn't want him because he was grotesque appearance and threw him from a mountain, only to be raised by nymphs. He lets the blacksmith god repair his hook should it be damaged.
  • Zeus does not like Maui because of his deed of stealing fire from the bottom of the earth and the heart for humanity, similar to how Prometheus stole fire from him and gave it to the humans.

Lesser Gods

    Suiseiseki and Souseiseki 
Suiseiseki and Souseiseki, Twin Goddesses of Shared Unusual Traits (Suiseiseki: 3rd Rozen Maiden, Jade Star, Emerald Green Sister, Rotten Doll, Desu, Headlights-chan) (Souseiseki: 4th Rozen Maiden, Lapis Lazuli Star, Blue Sister, Boku)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/19e54ff0b580fe3e076857dac2122056.jpg
  • Lesser Goddesses
  • Symbol: The Watering Can of The Gardener and The Shears of The Gardener
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Suiseiseki), Lawful Neutral (Souseiseki)
  • Domains: Arborea, Mysticism, Nature, Dolls
  • Allies: Ryoubi, Ryouna, Lieselotte Achenbach, Kurama, Mirai, The cast of Toy Story, NiGHTS, Ysera, Carl and Ada Clover, Suigintou
  • Mediums: Angelia and Mildred Avallone
  • Enemies: Relius Clover, The Other Mother
  • Originally the twin dolls were known as the Meme Theory. However, there was a problem: while Suiseiseki had her famous "desu" Verbal Tic to go with, Souseiseki had nothing really memetic about her and was in danger of being dropped. Souseiseki didn't seem to object... but Suiseiseki did hard, as she did not want to get separated from her sister and was willing to drop her own title for something else and such loose a lot of influence if it meant that she wouldn't be separated from her sister. The judges eventually had to agree on that,
    • Monsoon was happy to finally be the only god of Memetic Mutation, as he was annoyed by the two dolls. The two also dropped other deities off their back like the cast of Touhou Project.
  • While neither of them are that powerful, both of them have the ability to affect people's soul and memories, Suiseiseki by watering it and Souseiseki by maintaining the braches (person's soul is like a tree to them). Of course their powers can be used to damage the soul, by cutting the branches of the tree and then letting unwanted growth grow on it to ruin the soul, eventually killing the person.
    • Due the fact that this can extend to their dreams and such, with Suiseiseki specializing as Dream Weaver, they are in good relations with NiGHTS
  • Since Rozen Maidens need to get have a Medium to use the full extend of their powers, they decided to choose the Avallone sisters. They seem to get along quite nicely, albeit Suiseiseki and Angelia do seem to butt heads time to time.
  • Yes, we are absolutely certain that Souseiseki is a girl. Though the confusion can be justified. Heck, in one of the continuities, her first master of the modern time treated her as a Replacement Goldfish for his dead son.
    • In another continuity, her first modern master actually wished to use her alongside Suiseiseki to get revenge on someone. While Suiseiseki did not wish to fulfil that wish and escaped, Suiseiseki wanted to fulfil her master's wish. Sayo Samonji is sort of impressed by that.
  • Both of them hate Relius and the Other Mother. Especially the former due the fact that his plans to create the "Perfect Doll" bring memories of the Alice Game, and they do not want to go through that ordeal again.
  • As some may point out, Suiseiseki constantly adding "desu" at the end of her sentences both is and isn't a Verbal Tic. It is a proper Japanese copula that makes the sentence sound more polite. However, Suiseiseki's constant use of it and the fact that she says it the way it is written does make it a Verbal Tic.

  • Dislikes: Cave Johnson.
  • Wary of: Jumanji, The Crypt Keeper.
  • Stanford Pines was born in a coastal town, with his six fingers on each hand he always felt like an outcast to his town and had years of self-esteem issues stemming from his birth condition, however thanks to his twin brother, Stanley things always shined through... Until Stanford got accepted at a prestigious university and Stanley mistakenly ruined said chances when he unwittingly broke his project of a perpetual motion machine in a fit of rage, this incident a fallout and though Stanford was initially screwed out of his original college he nonetheless was able to graduate early in his next best option and soon built himself a home in Gravity Falls, Oregon, where a high concentration of supernatural phenomena awaited. However after dealings with the dream demon, Bill Cipher, Stanford's paranoia led to a series of events that led to him being pushed by Stanley into a portal he'd been working on to help Bill at first before he discovered his true intentions. For years he spent his time finding ways to fight Cipher and trying to save the Multiverse.
    • He eventually returned to the main dimension when his brother, Stanley, after decades of searching and investigating, was able to reopen the portal despite the efforts of the Pine Twins, Mabel and Dipper to stop it when they believed Stan to have sinister motives; but the conflict that split the brothers remained and almost drove them apart for good at least until Bill Cipher executed his master plan for the Weirdmageddon and forced them to work together. Eventually both siblings reconciled their differences and pulled off a plan to trick Bill into falling for a trap and destroying him once and for all. Once the deed was done, both Ford and Stan bid goodbye to the Pine Twins when they returned home before embarking on a journey across the world together as they had promised to each other in their childhood.
  • When Stan Pines was in the Pantheon, many just took it at face value that he really was Dipper and Mabel Pines' great uncle. Only a few Overdeities, mind-readers and the highly observant saw through this lie through clues such as a license plate that spelt Stanley, a past "Stan" with a suspicious-looking chin and an abnormal tattoo on Stan's back. It was only after the real Stanford Pines came back that it was all clarified and ever since the distinction between the twins couldn't be more different.
  • Ford wasn't happy to see Bill Cipher back in the flesh in the Pantheon, let alone discovering he now had allies to turn to and which could help him achieve his goals. He is particularly wary of what Weirdmageddon could escalate to in the Pantheon due to the vastness of the place and the many oddities in it. He's been looking for any help from the Pantheon's Gods, knowing Bill could very well mask his weaknesses this time around.
  • Interestingly enough, despite his usual aversion to their kind, he's found positive examples of unicorns in the example of the My Little Pony deities and others like Lady Amalthea; both equestrian deities have been perfectly willing to lend their aid against Cipher with their magical hair and own skills on the fields of magic and spells, to Ford's relief and simultaneously helping ease his views on unicorns.
    • He found himself wary of the ponies' enemies such as Tirek, Chrysalis and Grogar, who all wield powerful dangerous dark magic and could become serious concerns in the Pantheon with the amount of resources they have at hand to benefit from. In particular he's been looking out for the threat of Tirek who he knows can escalate out of control with his magical power absorption making him virtually unstoppable in the long run.
  • Ford has always been looking for more paranormal things to investigate and the vastness of the Pantheon's weirdness fascinated him ever more. Since then he's made more discoveries and documented any strangeness he comes across. He makes regular trips to the House of Otherness to find the weirder deadlier stuff to watch and learn from. He's been primarily interested in the various SCPs of the Halls, owing it to their variable nature and threat level some of which exceeds even some of the worst stuff he's fought over the years, however he's wary of the SCP Organization as a whole as he views them as quite inept and driven by failure to contain the threats they investigate.
  • It's been heavily believed and possibly proven that he met Rick Sanchez during his journeys through the Multiverse, or at least heard of him. Rick himself has little interest in clarifying if they had previously met, that said, they appear to get along with each other nowadays regardless of Ford being looked down upon by Rick's grandiose and egocentrical attitude, though obviously they are not exactly best friends due to their differing moral compasses. Ford is, on the other hand, dismissive of Morty, Rick's grandson who once was somewhat innocent but has proven at times to be extremely amoral.
  • He distrusts both Yugis because of their hair, which he finds completely unnatural. Their ability to inflict penalty games on others and Reality Warper capacities only serves to fan the flames of distrust even more, with Ford's aversion to supernatural curses and mind abilities due to his experiences with Bill Cipher as the cause for it. The other Yu-Gi-Oh! protagonists with equally odd hair also earned some distrust but given their differing natures they don't get it as bad as the Yugis.
  • Ford has come to be intrigued by Cave Johnson, a mad scientist with interest in various fields who developed a lot of technology but was completely insane in his experiments and dismissive of the danger they brought upon the world. Other than their similar voices, their similar pursuits of the unknown served as a point of interest for Ford but he couldn't quite become much of an ally to Cave given his insane and dismissive ideas. Johnson himself has been interested in learning of Ford's escapades in the Multiverse, finding the potential for new ideas enticing.
    • This similar voice got him aversion from GlaDOs and Chel, two deities who've been affected by the legacy of Johnson's experiments. Ford hasn't been too interested in them otherwise as he's too occupied with other business far more important than either of the two's opinions on him.
  • The existence of the Illuminati both disturbs and interests him, mostly on the possible connection between them and Bill Cipher, though nothing certain has been proven thus far. He has thought of investigating further into their case, looking to see what things they are planning and how they could affect the Pantheon and beyond in general. The Illuminati themselves only slightly see Ford as a threat but don't see him as a bigger one than the multiple others.
  • Ford heard of the exploits of Star Butterfly, Princess of the magical land of Mewni who once. He was perplexed by her extreme decision to destroy magic once it had gotten too dangerous for her people and monsterkind. While Ford was critical of the action itself, he cannot fault her reasoning considering she was more or less cornered and forced to perform that option once all else was rendered useless. By extension he came to loathe the Magic High Commission, Mina Loveberry and Toffee for their roles in the destruction of magic and use of it for their own selfish and monstrous ends. Though he spares Lekmet, Glossaryk, Reynaldo and somewhat Hekapoo for not being as bad as the rest.
  • Anne, her friends and the Plantars had once access to the Calamity Box, a powerful artifact that could open portals to other worlds including Ford's own. Ford was interested in what they had to recap to him about their adventures and how they saved the Multiverse from the threat of the Newtopian royalty alongside Anne's friends and other allies. Ford has also been interested in their own world due to it being filled with amphibian lifeforms that evolved to rule the land and have done so for millennia. He also was perplexed by the trio of girls' powers from the Gems, being interested in their scope and possible development though won't go out of his way to seek answers to any questions as to prevent bothering them much.
  • He learned of the exploits of Tsukasa Kadoya/Kamen Rider Decade, an interdimensional travelling heroic Kamen Rider who's fought off various threats in multiple universes outside his own. He eventually met up with him for a talk and was glad to exchange stories of their own adventures and exploits and was surprised himself to hear of the backstory Tsukasa had as a former leader of the Dai-Shocker organization, which Ford suspects has some times to the Illuminati. Regardless Tsukasa found Ford to be a pretty formidable guy for his own accomplishments in his long journey.
  • Ford is a fan of board games, especially one called Dungeons, Dungeons and More Dungeons though one adventure involving an omnipotent dice caused the game's creatures including their game's main antagonist: Probabilitor the Annoying, to come to life and attack him, as such he's been wary of games such as Jumanji which he's discovered is in the Pantheon's high-security vault. He also is highly averse to evil wizards and those similar to Probabilitor; among which stand out Saruman and Lord Voldemort who are particularly much more dangerous than the average evil sorcerer. He's been wary of Sauron, Smaug and Melkor by extension and has prepared countermeasures against their threat.
  • He's been compared to JJ Jameson for his attitude and voice, while Jameson and Ford get along from time to time, they otherwise are barely even amicable when not finding common ground to speak. He learned of Spider-Man through Jameson and was surprised when he eventually figured his identity and true age, though he refused to share it with anyone else lest Peter gave him the good to go. He was a bit wary of him at first, due to his knowledge of man-eating spider-people in his world but quickly changed his tune upon seeing how different Spidey was to said monsters.
  • He and his twin brother, Stanley, have kept on travelling the world around the Pantheon; with their combined genius, cunning and strength they have proven to be quite troublesome for evil deities. Ford has been exasperated bit by his brother's continued scams and con-man schemes, purely because it has gotten them in serious trouble more than once with some good-aligned and neutral deities.
  • He's found himself chummy with Rod Serling for his skills at narratives about the supernatural and strange, Serling has taken interests in learning of his multiversal adventures and using them as the basis for various new works for the general public to enjoy which Ford is more than willing to lend a hand to. On the flip-side he's been creeped out by the Crypt Keeper, who he suspects is up to something shifty despite his mostly neutral and relaxed attitude, he finds it odd Dipper and Mabel are more trusting of it but won't judge.
  • He found himself interested in various scientifc places in the Pantheon, particularly in the Hall of Fields of Science where new branches exist for him to explore. In particular he found himself looking to learn more about the alchemic science of Edward Elric, which he thinks would be of use to create better means to fight Bill Cipher and other creeps like him. He also made a connection with Lewis Antonio, a young genius who became a world-famous super scientist but was once alienated and ridiculed by his peers for his passion, an experience Ford knows all too well himself. Like Lewis, he also found out that Jimmy Neutron was once a bit of an outcast for his genius but his friends and others came around with time to his relief. Flint Lockwood was another one of such outcast geniuses, especially in regard to his origins at a humble sea-bound town not unlike Ford's own past.
  • Has made allies with Qubit, a heroic scientist who opposed the malevolent Plutonian in his quest for destruction and is also an anti-heroic idealist. Other scientists he made connections with were Bentley Turtle who's been wheelchair-bound for most of his life yet keeps going on with the good fight. Alphys who made severely big mistakes but has atoned for them with her newer actions, Ludwig Von Drake who shares some of Ford's quirks and eccentricities, Sandy Cheeks who shares his skills at fighting and hatred of being looked down upon and even Nikola Tesla for being once not truly comprehended by his peers.

"Unfortunately, my suspicions have been confirmed. I'm being watched. I must hide this book before he finds it. Remember: in Gravity Falls there is no one you can trust."

    Rev. Harry Powell 
Rev. Harry Powell, Divine Bearer of Knuckle Tattoos

  • Demigod
  • Symbol: The Love and Hate tattoos
  • Theme Song: "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms"
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil, despite pretensions of Lawful... something
  • Portfolio: Knuckle Tattoos, The Bluebeard, Would Hurt a Child, Straw Misogynist
  • Domains: Murder, Tattoos, Evil, Priesthood
  • Allies: Bluebeard, Count Olaf, The Child Abuse Supporters
  • Enemies: Lisbeth Salander, The House of Childhood and Adolescence, The Heroic Protectors of Family, Baudelaire Orphans, Bloody Mary, The Blues Brothers, most of the clergy, Yoshikage Kira
  • Rival: Uncle Charlie
  • Opposed by: YHVH
  • Not so different from: Claude Frollo
  • Reverend Harry Powell is a charismatic preacher capable of charming whole communities with his seemingly winsome personality. But that is a mask for the truth: that he is an unhinged, hateful serial killer of women, whose money he then uses to fund his personal, twisted religious mission of committing more killings, believing he's doing God's work. It once happened that he was in prison for a minor crime, where he talked with an inmate who boasted about having stolen and stashed a considerable amount of money. Determined to get the money for himself, Powell ingratiated himself to the now-dead man's family, marrying the widow and becoming stepfather to two children, the only ones who saw that he was bad news. After murdering his wife, Powell intended to force the children to tell him where the money was, but they managed to escape and find shelter with a tough old lady who would not be cowed by Powell. Ultimately the authorities caught up to Powell's crimes and he finally was stopped.
  • Powell is easily identifiable by the tattoos on his knuckles; the right hand reads "Love", while the left reads "Hate". He likes to arm-wrestle with himself to illustrate his philosophy about the universal struggle between love and hate. Twisted as he is, he believes his grisly acts are an act of love. Ironically (and appropriately), he does seem to favor his left hand. Because of this, he was ascended to represent Knuckle Tattoos. Powell, with his particular set of beliefs, took this to mean that God was aligned with him after all and brought him ever so slightly closer to his side as reward for his deeds in his mortal life. He is therefore determined to continue his holy mission in the Pantheon, to the dismay of many deities, especially women.
  • After putting much thought into it, Powell has arrived at the conclusion that the God he knows (or thinks he knows) may not be physically present in the Pantheon at all. Most beings who take on that identity have denounced him, including, most surprisingly, YHVH. Say what you will about YHVH, but he is a staunch egalitarian and he considers Powell's murderous hatred of women to go against his ideology. Powell's reaction to all this is to reject all these figures claiming to be God as false idols and the Devil's temptation; after all, the Almighty is supposed to be one and only. Powell has started to theorize that the Pantheon may not be the highest plane in existence and he has simply placed in there by the one, true God as a test for his faith and so as to further spread his teachings. He seems pretty confident that he's doing well.
  • Powell is reviled by just about every member of the clergy present in the Pantheon, with even some of the more evil ones like Frollo vehemently denying that this serial killer is in any way a man of the cloth. It's a bit ironic coming from Frollo, who a lot of people would say is not so different from Powell, as Frollo has his own destructive hatred for a select group of people (the Roma) which led to him attempting genocide. Frollo is also tormented by his sexual desires, much like Powell. Frollo's reaction to this is to accuse people making those comparisons of slandering him, a deeply religious man (as he sees it...), and thus affronting God. Powell's own reaction to Frollo and the rest of the clergy denouncing him is to tut-tut about it and shoot back that only he seems to know God's true will and that he feels sorry for the supposed men and women of the cloth who don't and are likely going to hell because of it.
  • Powell finds himself routinely annoyed by two brothers, Jake and Elwood Blues, who have decided to make his life difficult and call it a Mission from God. They particularly fond of flashing their own Knuckle Tattoos (theirs are simply their names) at Powell in various rude gestures as a sign of defiance and mockery of Powell's schtick, which rather gets on Powell's nerves. Their encounters generally turn into chaotic and eventful car chases in which Powell ends up the loser in some embarrassing fashion.
  • His modus operandi of marrying women and then killing them to collect their money has gotten him an ally in Bluebeard, the archetypal wife-killer. Powell, in his usual way of twisting things, takes the tale of Bluebeard as a... well-intentioned, cautionary warning to women to obey their husbands' wishes without question, or risk a horrible fate befalling them. The fact that said horrible fate is inflicted by the husband himself does not register in Powell's mind as a signal that the husband shares at least some of the blame, the important thing is that the wife be subservient in all cases, and if she is not, it's entirely her fault if something happens to her. In any case, Powell has adopted this spiel as part of his preaching, which seems to fill Bluebeard with pride. They may occasionally assist each other in their killings, besides.
  • One might have expected Powell to be aligned with Uncle Charlie, the Merry Widow Killer, especially as he is also a personal friend of Bluebeard. Certainly, Powell admires him being a rare man who's wise to the "fact" that women in their frivolity waste their honest husbands' hard-earned money. However, Uncle Charlie crucially looks down on the church as "opium for the masses" and thus doesn't think very highly of the Reverend or his obsession with carrying out his supposedly God-given mission. Powell being given to bizarre histrionics is also pretty off-putting to the more stoic and classy Charlie. All things considered, Charlie doesn't seem interested in helping Powell, or really even letting him have widows' fortunes at all, as it would mean all that money would simply go into an institution he feels contempt for. Because of all this, they seem to compete over who gets to ingratiate himself to a woman and get to her money first for the sake of their personal beliefs. Powell, for his part, has not lost hope that he can show Charlie the light and the two can thus work together to fulfill God's will; Charlie already seems to have his heart in the right place, from his deranged perspective.
  • Yoshikage Kira may be another woman-killer, however Powell was really repulsed by the part where he keeps mementos of the women he kills, most specifically their hands, as Kira has a fetish for them. Powell, being as averse to matters of sexuality as he is, simply cannot understand such a thing and feels deeply disturbed by it. He finds Kira contemptible for falling prey to such weakness of the flesh and worship of loathsome femalehood even in death, in his words. Kira likely does not care what a deranged priest like him thinks and he doesn't have much to worry about at any rate, seeing as how he has his explosive powers, while Powell has nothing more than a switchblade.
  • As Powell is one of the most fervent and outspoken misogynists in the Pantheon and that hatred manifests in killing women and sometimes hurting children, he has quite the place of honor in Lisbeth Salander's list of people to end with extreme prejudice. Lisbeth made damn sure to let Powell know exactly what kind of trouble he will get from her, by kidnapping him and giving him a taste of his own medicine: she tied him up, trapped him in a car and pushed it into a lake, in an imitation of what he had done to his Willa, one of his victims. Powell was none too fazed after the fact, coming to the conclusion that Lisbeth had completely forgotten her place in God's creation and killing her with his own hands would be an act of mercy. Lisbeth isn't frightened by this and will definitely continue to remain a stone in his shoe as long as he keeps threatening women.
  • One of Powell's marriage and murder schemes went very awry as the woman he targeted was Bloody Mary. He thought she would be easy pickings as she's always trying to find the perfect groom, so she was easy to charm. What he didn't expect was Mary herself becoming homicidal with him once he allowed his charming mask to slip. Powell realized he should finish the job as soon as possible, but he wasn't fast enough and he ended up being the one killed, with Mary resenting him for tricking her. Everyone who has heard of what happened thinks Powell got what he had coming to him. Afterwards, Powell preaches against Bloody Mary as the kind of woman who went irredeemably astray and needs to be put down so she can no longer conspurcate God's creation, which might just be a bunch of fancy words for him wanting revenge on her (but revenge is so un-Christian, as it goes).
  • His treatment of his stepkids John and Pearl is another factor that makes him widely reviled, with the House of Childhood and Adolescence and The Heroic Protectors of Family in particular condemning him for it. Conversely, The Child Abuse Supporters extended their sympathies to Powell for being saddled with such "disobedient and troublesome" children who were so hideously ungrateful to their stepfather, in their view. Related to this, Powell has found a kindred spirit in Count Olaf, who took guardianship of the Baudelaire Children specifically so he could get his hands on their family fortune. Powell and Olaf understood each other for the trouble that their charges caused them and so Powell has accepted working alongside Olaf to get at the Baudelaire fortune (agreeing they would divide it equally between the two of them once they acquired it).

  • Sarah Collins was initially a normal housewife with a husband named Stephen and their two children, Ben and Lucy. That is until Stephen was knifed to death during a drug deal gone wrong, with Ben becoming an Elective Mute from seeing his father being killed. Subsequently, Sarah becomes despondent and struggles to adjust to life, with Stephen's death not being properly investigated only making things worse as Sarah tries to urge the police into putting effort to no avail. One day, a drug dealer named Tito unexpectedly runs into Sarah and her children after stealing a package of drugs from a crime boss named Leo Miller and coaxes her into stashing the drugs in exchange for money. Frightened and initially wanting nothing to do with Leo, Sarah figures that she could use him to gain information and what happened regarding the circumstances of Leo's death. However, Ben accidentally finds and consumes some of the drugs, angering Tito who decides to take it out by attempting to rape Sarah, who kills him in response and tries to hack his body to destroy evidence. However, Leo manages to figure out Tito's role in stealing his money and Sarah's involvement, and in return, Sarah finds out that Leo was the one who killed her husband. Agreeing to bring Tito along for a negotiation, Sarah visits Leo and his gang at a nightclub, bargaining that Leo leave her and her family alone. When Leo rejects the offer and orders Sarah and her children dead, she retaliates by showing them Tito's severed head before killing him and his gang. Throughout all of this, Sarah is not suspected by the police, thinking that she was a grieving widow who is still recovering from her husband's loss and writing off Tito and Leo's deaths as gang-related violence. This allows her to be able to gradually recover from her past ordeal as well as make the most of her time with her mother and her children. Her son is also beginning to recover from his traumatized self.
  • With her turbulence solved, Sarah was content in moving on from her husband's death, now that she avenged his murder, and dedicated herself to looking after her children as best as she could. Although she wanted simplicity from that point on, things didn't turn out as such, when her story was recognized by the Pantheon. Sarah was initially unaware of her reputation, but she realized that her surroundings and the people around were discreetly becoming different until she wound up seeing what she thought was a flying man and an alien walking across the street. She had a bit of a freak out before composing herself and trying to learn about what was going on, eventually realizing that she was in the Pantheon. Despite her ascension being based on her actions going off unnoticed by the police, not a lot of people actually know her tale, which was something Sarah was content on hearing about. Her kids are her top priority after all, but she's since become perplexed about how she's going to cope in a new world that's vastly different in comparison to where she came from.
  • One of the places in the Pantheon that Sarah is well-acquainted with is the Hall of Mothers, which made sense considering her circumstances. Not many people know about what Sarah has been through other than her husband's death, so she's comfortable with the fact that she doesn't have to be hounded by events that have clearly tormented her and her children. For now, most of the support comes from additional donations as a way to help her children, Ben and Lucy, and the House of Family and Relatives have registered Sarah as a mother to keep on tabs with as a way to look after her circumstances. While she is thankful for their support, she is somewhat nervous about the whole thing as well, considering she was involved in drug storing and murder. She's not too concerned about facing justice as much as she is about losing custody of her kids because of her actions.
  • Being a Struggling Single Mother herself, Sarah was very accustomed to meeting and hanging out with them as they can relate and empathize with their plights and issues. Two single mothers that Sarah quickly got along with were Hana and Selma Ježková, and they, in return, were very kind to Sarah as she respected what they went through and made it a point to not bring it up too much. They were also aware of Sarah's story, with Hana being taken aback by it due to the brutality behind Sarah's story as well as how she got to kill and dismember her aggressors, whereas Selma was not as fazed, seeing as she killed someone who stole her savings that she tried to keep for her son, who had the same disease as she did. Regardless of that, Sarah is a straightforward, but nice person if not provoked and that's what mattered more, allowing her to easily integrate with Hana and Selma's needs and privacy. The three mothers were also pleased to see that their children were open to meeting and playing with each other, with Ben hanging out with Gene while Lucy felt more comfortable with Ame and Yuki.
  • Due to the trouble Tito caused him regarding the stolen drugs, his attempt to rape her, and the whole situation regarding her husband's death, Sarah wants absolutely nothing to do with drugs and while the information is generally private, some have noted how apprehensive Sarah gets whenever drugs are bought up, even in conversations. To her dismay, one of the first drug cases she heard about happened to come from Gus Fring, a methamphetamine manufacturer from New Mexico who used a fast food chain as a cover-up for his operations, and she was quickly cautious about the sort of man he is. Seeing as Sarah wants to keep her distance, Gus doesn't pay her too much attention for now, although he is one of the few people who actually knows Sarah's involvement with Leo Miller's murder, and believes that Sarah was justified as he could relate to those circumstances. Still, she expresses disdain towards the older man for his crimes even extending toward children and being incredibly ruthless in his dealings in spite of his affability.
  • Speaking of Gus, Sarah also got to learn about Walter White, a former chemistry teacher who turned to meth manufacturing to financially help his family before his ego took over and he sought to create a criminal empire to make himself relevant and powerful, causing him to cross Gus's path. Initially, Sarah was somewhat sympathetic to Walt, especially when his children, Walter Jr.note  and Holly were his top concern and priority, until the former learned just how egotistical and temperamental he really was and concluded that he was really no better than Leo Miller when it came to the callousness and destructiveness of his crimes. Walt, on the other hand, does sympathize with Sarah to some degree, knowing how hard it is to manage children as well, and, in spite of his arrogance and jerkiness, is willing to let Sarah off, though he is not above threatening her if she ever does intrude in his business.
    • And speaking of three, there was Jesse Pinkman, a former high school student of Walt's who would go on to become his personal apprentice in their meth-making business. Despite Jesse being the most reliable partner he has, Walt treated him contemptuously and without much care, manipulating Jesse to make him dependent on his superior, and inadvertently ruining his life. As the business grew worse, Jesse tried to escape from his predicament, and although he through severe agony and anguish, he was eventually able to by using an identity eraser to cover his tracks and start a new life in Alaska. unlike Gus and Walt and despite his gruff appearance and attitude, Sarah and Jesse managed to connect and get along well. The two of them don't talk about their pasts all too much, but knowing how it feels to be used and lose someone important to tem, they've agreed on looking out for one another and being able to help if possible. Jesse has even opened up to providing professional aid as a wood shop owner if Sarah ever needs something for her household. Finally, being someone who is affectionate and protective of children, Jesse came to be liked by Ben and Lucy as he's open to looking after and even playing with them, additionally making him someone Sarah could look out for in case she needs a babysitter/caretaker for her children under extreme circumstances.
  • While she is a widow who is taking steps toward recovering from the emotional stress bought by Stephen's murder, Sarah had been open to visiting the Hall of Romantic Loss where she orders some coffee and/or tea for herself whilst also buying muffins, cookies, or similar dessert for her kids there. A recurring presence in the Hall, Sarah enjoys the environment of the cafe set up there, thinking that it's sociable enough without being loud either, though when one of the Hall's patrons is Darth Vader, it's best to behave well and be respectful of your surroundings. It's here where Sarah met Scarlett O'Hara, a member of the O'Hara Plantation, and a woman defined by her determination to keep her family status and well-being strong, despite her vain and selfish nature. The two had quite an Odd Friendship as Sarah respected her commitment, considering she has to look after two children of her own and Scarlett responded back by praising Sarah's guts upon learning her tale, though Scarlett did get a little huffy when Sarah tried to express condolences about her circumstances. The two remain on good terms with each other, though Sarah is worried about the well-being of Scarlett's own children, Wade and Ella, though she doesn't want to anger Scarlett again lest she sees Sarah's words of concern as pity.
  • On one particular day, Sarah received a package that was meant for her children. When she discovered that they contained a deadly drug, Sarah was beyond furious and was set to confront the figure who sent them the drugs, despite their name not being written in the post. That's when she ran into Giorno Giovanni and Bruno Bucciarati. An awkward moment ensued when Sarah mistakes them for sending the drugs to her kids to which Bruno immediately recanted and explained the situation. It took a while before Sarah calmed down and gave the drugs to Bruno for inspection, to which he stated that while not common, there are some gangs who are not above delivering drugs to children, which disgusts him, and that because the package came with no name, someone wants to keep their identity anonymous. Giorno and the rest of Bruno's gang assumed that the packages were sent under orders from Diavolo, a notorious crime boss known for his paranoia and desperation for wanting to keep his identity hidden. While Sarah was determined to make Diavolo pay, Bruno told her that he was too powerful a threat to deal with and that she should instead focus on her children's safety, to which she conceded. Fortunately, Sarah was glad to have met Giorno and Bruno as despite being gangsters, they were kind and understanding, not to mention people who didn't want to risk collateral damage. Still, with their occupation, she decided it's best to keep minimal contact with them as she's aware that it would bring further attention, though Bruno has affirmed that she's always available to ask them for help if she needs it.
  • While Beatrix Kiddo was similarly motivated by a desire for revenge for the loss of a loved one and for being knocked into a coma, she did come out lucky in that her daughter, B.B., was actually alive if held captive by Billy, her father and the one who shot Beatrix, rendering her comatose. She and Sarah met at the Hall of Mothers where Lucy was eager to approach B.B. and ask if they can play together, which she accepted. Sarah and Beatrix took notice and took this as an opportunity to talk to one another, which resulted in the latter being impressed by the former deciding to stand up for herself in spite of her grief and exact revenge upon those that killed her husband. Sarah was similarly stunned by Beatrix's story but was happy to learn that at least she and B.B. are trying to make up for the time they lost when Beatrix was in a coma. The two have since been good friends, with Sarah wondering if she can take combat lessons from Beatrix. Learning from a master assassin may come in handy after all.

    Yona 
Yona, Goddess of Reincarnation Marks
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yona_appearance.png
  • Demigoddess
  • Symbol: A red dragon
  • Theme Song: Akatsuki no Yona and Akatsuki no Hana
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Notably red-haired due to being King Hiryuu reincarnated, Determination, getting stronger, losing her kingdom, always willing to help others in need, Important Haircut, not super-powered like the Four Dragon Warriors but still pretty tough
  • Domains: Royalty, Kindness, Hair, Reincarnation, Dragons

  • Yona lived a privileged and sheltered life as the heir apparent to the throne of Kouka. Her father the king's uncompromising pacifism caused discontent among the people, as he freely gave up territory to prevent war, and abject misery and crime festered. Yona was blissfully oblivious to any of this until she got a rude awakening on her sixteenth birthday, when her beloved cousin Su-Won murdered her father and took the throne. A catatonic Yona and her bodyguard Son Hak ran away from the city, with Su-Won taking the opportunity to fake the princess' death and framing Hak for the murders. As the two travelled and Yona gained resolve, they heard of a prophecy about four people with the power of the four dragon gods sent to serve King Hiryuu, the country's founder. Yona gathered them and asked their help in getting her throne back. Unbeknownst to Yona at the time, or her entourage, she is King Hiryuu reincarnated, so the Four Dragon Warriors followed her on instinct. Together they travelled through all of Kouka solving the people's problems.
  • The Dark Dragon and the Happy Hungry Bunch (that is the tongue-in-cheek name Yona and her merry crew came up with for themselves) were traveling through the land when they happened upon some ruins. Feeling the power of a dragon, the gang entered to see if it had anything to do with the Four Dragon Warriors. Instead they found a huge black and blue dragon called Acnologia who roared at them about his hatred for dragons and attacked them. Rather than being intimidated, the whole gang responded in kind with their combat abilities, which did a pretty good number on Acnologia. This just made him angrier and his thrashing caused the way they came from to be blocked, so the gang fled deeper into the ruins. When they found an exit, they discovered a place unlike any they've ever seen, but they couldn't admire it for long as Acnologia was right on their tail. Just as they were about to launch their next attacks, another group appeared and a boy clad in red dragon armor dealt the finishing blow to Acnologia. He introduced himself as Issei Hyodo; unusually, the perverted god wasn't very flirty with Yona, presumably because the gaggle of rather impressive boys with her intimidated him (most of them are way taller than him). Anyway, Issei and his crew were very friendly and hospitable to Yona's while the Pantheon's Main House figured out what to do with them. In the meantime, Yona and Issei became very interested in each other's connection to a legendary red dragon and bonded over it, causing Hak and the rest to worry that Issei might be trying to draw their princess into his harem. Whether or not that's the case, their glares cause Issei to act extra-chivalrous around Yona.
  • Ultimately Yona was recommended for godhood by Bahamut of the Triumvirate of Dragons, due to being the reincarnation of the great Dragon King Hiryuu, something that is evinced by her beautiful, unique red hair, as King Hiryuu was the red dragon descended to earth to watch over humanity. The rest of the Hungry Bunch made it clear that wherever their princess goes, they go, and they'd ravage the Main House if they were forced apart from her. The Main House responded basically "no need for all that violence" and made them her Heralds. Of course Yona was challenged by/made enemies out of various gods because of her potential dragon origins, besides Acnologia, which also earned her support from his archnemesis Natsu Dragneel, who relates to her in much the same way as Issei (minus any sign of perversion). She was later attacked by Ornstein, who wanted to make trophies of her and her companions' dragon parts; however they managed to push him back.
  • It didn't take long for a rebel leader called Sarasa to take Yona under her wing (or should we say paw, given the whole tiger motif), after hearing about her actions to do good across the land regardless of the authorities. Given Sarasa was about the same age as Yona when she set out on her journey and grieved for a family member for a good part of it, yet at the same time they proved to be good and charismatic leaders, Sarasa can easily identify with Yona and her situation and wishes to guide her so her path will be less painful than her own. Sarasa's also oddly understanding of Yona's mixed feelings on Su-Won - Sarasa had very similar feelings when she discovered her soulmate Shuri was the Red King who killed her brother.
    • Given Yona and Sarasa's association with dragons and tigers respectively, a lot of deities have construed a Tiger Versus Dragon duality between them. Provided Yona doesn't end up screwing up majorly, it's highly unlikely that there'll ever be any animosity between them that such a duality implies, so the two are just amused by it all.
  • She's another in the long list of princesses who've lost their kingdoms. She gets along with Ange as they both lost their kingdoms and watched as one of their parents died in front of them via betrayal of a close family member and had their lives turned upside down. To rub salt on the wound, this all took place on their sixteenth birthday. While Yona isn't really comfortable with just how cynical Ange can be, she accepts advice and self-defense classes from her, given how experienced and competent she is.
  • Anastasia is another fallen princess that Yona is particularly close to; in this case it's because of how uninterested Anastasia is in seeking revenge and reclaiming the throne, and her preference for living a normal, anonymous life, even though learning about the circumstances of her family's murders has led to her occasionally feeling angry. Anastasia's outlook gives Yona some food for thought, as she has some very complicated feelings for Su-Won which can't be summed up as hate even though he murdered her father, and she's not entirely sure anymore whether she should take the throne. Also, Yona is now prone to fantasizing about eloping with Hak just like Anastasia and Dimitri did.
  • As a princess who was formerly sheltered and spoiled but has awoken to reality and is actively engaging with her people and their problems, it's a matter of principle that she can't stand any leader-type deities who use their status to throw their weight around or to bring suffering to their people instead of supporting them. Such deities are far too many to enumerate, but one Yona finds particularly distasteful is Joffrey Baratheon, for being a complete psychopath. Joffrey's disgusting advances on Sansa also remind Yona of the time when a nobleman called Tae-Jun had a similar fixation on her, though at least Tae-Jun redeemed himself and became a better person, which is definitely not the case with Joffrey. Joffrey himself holds contempt for Yona for two reasons: her red hair reminds him of Sansa, and her association with dragons and ability to command them (in a sense) is a bit too similar to Daenerys, who joffrey greatly fears.
  • In Yona's world there's a drug known as Nadai that's highly addictive and basically drives a person berserk from excessive consumption. In Kouka, the Water Tribe had particularly bad problems with Nadai getting smuggled in from across the border, and it's also been given to slaves in place of water to keep them working. Yona and her crew were responsible for dismantling a Nadai-distributing network, and since seeing the effects Nadai can have on people, Yona really has a problem with those who produce and sell illicit and dangerous substances to people. It's because of this that she opposes Walter White and Tony Montana, as they're in the drug business and care only for the profits and nothing for the lives of the people they ruin.
  • She also loathes those who deal in selling humans after taking down a scummy aristocrat called Yang Kum-Ji, who terrorized his people and profitted from selling slaves to the rival Kai Empire. For this reason she's a declared enemy of the Slavers and she will do whatever it takes to dismantle them, even using herself as bait (which wouldn't be the first time).
  • Her skill with a bow impressed Huang Zhong and he offered to help her improve her archery. Huang Zhong reminds Yona of Hak's jovial grandfather Mundok, who's also an Old Soldier perfectly capable of kicking ass, so Yona feels pretty nostalgic when she's around Huang Zhong. She also became friends with Merida as another princess who favors the bow and arrow. Yona was impressed that Merida has even wilder red hair than hers when it was long, and seeing Merida pay it no mind makes Yona ashamed of worrying way too much about her hair when she was a sheltered princess.

  • A former freeter turned real estate agent, Punpun Onodera is a rather odd person to look at by Pantheon observers beyond the realm of the screen. He looks like a rather cartoonish bird creature with sticks for limbs at normal but that is perhaps the compelling and disturbing nature around Punpun. Punpun lived a disturbing life from his childhood to his twenties where it was filled with depression, loss, and just searching for the meaning of life. Punpun and his immediate family are represented as cartoonish birds, as that is his view on the oddness and tragedy that is life. Everybody sees him as a regular person and Punpun's name aside from his maternal surname Onodera, Punpun's name probably is not real either. For the sake of needing a name, he is listed as Punpun regardless. Aside from his most iconic form as an emotive bird, Punpun takes various faces that depended on his mood at the moment. He can be a smiling triangle, a man wearing a Hyottoko mask, a tetrahadon, a four eyed black pillar, or a black horned demon. However, no matter how many mood he goes through, Punpun at his most "okay" would be a cartoonish head on his human body. At his happiest, he reverts fully to that cartoon bird he was ever since he was a child. He may look offsetting to people at a first glance but compared to everyone else around him, Punpun has faced more tragedy than the average human being.
    • Punpun's life can be described as completely and utterly fucked by any person. Once an outgoing boy, Punpun withdrawn himself from others when one of his childhood friends was involved in accident he blamed himself for. Having lived in an fractured household where his parents were neglectful if not outright abusive to him, Punpun's drive for living was for Aiko Tanaka, a girl he loved since elementary. When Punpun reached adulthood and his mother died, he fell to deep depression and basically struggled through making relationships with others now that he drifted apart from most of his old friend group. When it looked like he was broke out of living in the past, Aiko came back to his life again and helped her try to escape her household. Punpun ended up killing her insane mother. After having failed to dispose of the body, Punpun and Aiko tried to run away across the country as their mental state and physcial strength have dissolved completely. It was then after being backed to a corner with no hope for a better future, Aiko hung herself and Punpun left back to Tokyo to commit suicide as well. It failed and Punpun was punished by the law with parole only. Even though those events and his entire life haunt him forever, he resolved that it would better to live for the future and others even if it is the harder route than death. Although he may not be fulfilled, he is surrounded by those he call friends and loved ones.
  • Punpun Onedera resolved to live a life of normalcy. He would not be an evil greedy bastard nor would he stick out from the crowd. So when Punpun ascended to the Pantheon, he got HEAVILY annoyed at being seen as a person of worth. He does not even know how he got his title as again, only observers far beyond the Pantheon's plane of existence see him as a weird cartoonish bird. Luckily, he noticed people seem to pay more attention to those of higher status, such as Overdeities or Greater Gods. Punpun is at the lowest of the low as Quasideity to which he is content. After all, if a normal person faced as much turmoil as Punpun faced then they ought to be given a mundane life when it is all said and done.
  • While Punpun is an ordinary human and is seen as such by Pantheonic denizens, the same cannot be said for those observing the realm of fiction from a world far away. To them, he (and by extension, his family) is most often seen as a crude doodle of a bird, a stark contrast to the realistic world around him. His form often morphs depending on his emotional and mental state, at times taking the form of a human with a bizarre symbolic head. Notably, Punpun actually does take these forms in certain locations, such as the Hall of Dreams and Nightmares (and the dream worlds in general), the Houses of Shape and Otherness, and the digital realms, which greatly freaks him out as not only is his form greatly distorted, but it will attract much unwanted attention towards him, ruining his desires to blend in the crowd. Unfortunately for him, there is no way to retain his human form in those areas, much to his frustration. Another cruel joke from the Powers That Be, it seems. Maybe those Pegasus Ensemble guys were right and the world is at an end, Punpun questioned.
  • To say that Punpun had it rough is a massive understatement. When one's life involves a neglectful, emotionally abusive mother, a destructive romance with a childhood friend, sexual assault, and hopes and dreams being ground into fine dust by the gears of time, it's no wonder that a person could be pushed to the brink of nihilistic despair. Still, the fact he eventually managed to gain some sense of a normal life is a visible, if uncertain silver lining in an otherwise depressing life story. Punpun asked Bojack if that ugly voice in your head ever goes away as God stared at him.
    Bojack: To be honest, no it doesn't. Even when you're at your happiest, that shitty thing rears its mug around. But you got to learn to live with it and not use it as a dumbass excuse, especially if you're as old as me.
    • Having met the anthropomorphic horse, Punpun and Bojack realized that thay shared much in common; a normal, cheerful kid heavily worn down by the cruelties of living, an upbringing under an emotionally abusive mother that they greatly resent, becoming a depressed, cynical sadsack of a man, being brought to the brink of death at their lowest point, and eventually earning some semblance of a functioning life. Due to this, they got along quite well and sometimes meet up over drinks to talk about their life experiences. Through Bojack, Punpun also met and became drinking buddies with Todd Chavez. Sometimes, a chat with pleasant company and a drink or two really helps distract someone from the suffocating void in ones heart.
    • Meeting other broken, worn down souls didn't end with Bojack, as Punpun met a neurotic teenage boy named Shinji Ikari. The two don't talk all that much during their meetings, which was fine by them, but sometimes the boy talked about his problems to the grown man. Punpun was baffled by what Shinji went through; juggling adolescence and nearly dying while fighting against alien monsters at the same time? That almost sounds like the plot of a terrible show! But... he knows better than anyone about growing pains and dysfunctional relations with women. And Gendo... Punpun's already feeling disgusted by him; a neglectful parent who resents their child reminds him far too much of his mother. When Shinji complained about trying and failing to get his approval, Punpun told him that he shouldn't feel obliged to love his father if he's awful to him, even if he apologized. After all, he couldn't bring himself to love his mother even after her passing. As for Shinji's famous mantra, he had only this to say:
    Punpun: "I musn't run away", huh? I tried to run away from my problems many times... it never worked out well at all.
  • Growing up from childhood to adolescence to adulthood is always a bumpy ride, with many uncomfortable revelations, responsibilities and challenges weighting down on someone as they grow up. Such a tale is true for Punpun, but his one was a terribly depressing one. Once a innocent, curious kid with big dreams, he grew up to become a sad, cynical shell of himself who wallowed in sex and nostalgia to distract himself from the present. In the end, there was little of the young boy that he once was. Sometimes, Punpun sits on a bench and watches the all the people walk by. This quiet hobby remained solitary until a cat woman in a sweater came to sit on the bench next to him. At first, they were quiet, but eventually they chatted about their lives and the suckiness of living. Mae's unemployed, dropped out of college, does petty crimes, is thoroughly cynical, and death with wacko cults and gods that might be real... kinda like him. From what they learned about each other, they seemed to really understand what it's like to continue living such torrid and uncertain lives. In a way, it feels nice to know that someone gets what you've been through. He'd never admit it out loud, but he's kinda happy that he talks with Mae on a regular basis. It makes his day a little better, just a little.
  • At some points, Punpun had to watch over Sunny, Basil, Kel, Aubrey, and Hero just to make sure they did not do things like "split their head open falling down stairs" or something among those lines. Punpun initially did not want to but after seeing him get paid nicely, he said yes. The kids like him enough even though Punpun acts a bit too distant though in a rare moment, they forced him to hang out with them. For a brief moment, Punpun felt like a kid again before he realized that it was unbecoming of an adult to play with kids that way. He kept his distance away from them, much to their disappointment since they thought Punpun was cool.
  • When Punpun was younger, he used to talk to a being known as "God". By praying with a quirky little incantation, he would appear and dispense advice to the boy when plagued by confusion and doubt, though it tended to be rather vague and open most of the time. As he grew up, God became more of a dark figure, encouraging Punpun to indulge in his more depraved instincts and desires as well as mocking him for his flaws and insecurities. Eventually, Punpun realized that God was really just how he viewed talking to himself, and by stabbing his own eye he purged God from his life forever. Now, he's fully outgrown the need for a voice in his head, but some others had some experience with imaginary friends as well. For example, Yukiteru Amano thought Deus ex Machina was merely his imaginary friend, but he turned out to be a real god who made him participate in a deadly battle royale. Punpun finds that incredibly damn weird... thankfully his God wasn't real after all. He's already killed one person already, why ten more? Jojo Batzler was a more baffling case in that his friend was Adolf Hitler of all people, but he grew to realize just how much of a toxic influence the fantasy fuhrer was and rejected him after some life changing revelations... Huh, kinda like him. He gave the boy his approval in doing that. A small thumbs up and he was on his way. Jojo wants to know more about Punpuns experiences, but the man doesn't want to talk about them right now. The existence of the imaginary friends from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends makes Punpun realize something dreadful; if the Home is where discarded imaginary friends go, does that mean God is also there? He avoids the hell out of them as to not think about such wild things. And that Stanley guy who keeps peddling imaginary friends to kids can go shut up as far as he's concerned; he's way too old for that stuff, and if God did come back to him, he wouldn't hesitate to stab him in the eye again. Stanley laughed at his rejection.
    Stanley: No matter how old you get, you'll never outgrow the child in you! Hahaha!
    • Punpun's God is an odd one, to put it somewhat mildly. Appearing as a photorealistic, oft disembodied head, he's quite the strange one, manifesting in bizarre places like other people's heads, in their eyes or merely floating nearby, and his attitude is rather sarcastic and mocking. Clearly, Punpun wouldn't encounter anything like him ever again, right? Wrong! Some divine beings are just as weird as Punpun's God, if not even moreso. Of special note are two being; the King of All Cosmos, a flamboyant and irresponsible father with an alcohol problem who can easily destroy the stars in a drunken bender and let his kids do all the work for him, and Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of Madness who is quirky as he is unpredictable, with him spontaneously doing whatever he feels like without warning. Needless to say, Punpun finds them highly annoying and refuses to get involved in any of their nonsense. No, he will not become one with a weird ball that'll create Punpunia nor will he eat one of Sheogorath's fine cheeses (it's probably drugged or something). He has better things to do than entertain the whims of mad gods, and he's not worth their time anyways. Of course, the two care not for the opinions of a mere human. Heck, Sheogorath would bother him regardless of what Punpun thinks of him! Hopefully he doesn't end up in a terribly harrowing incident that'll leave him physically and mentally mangled... but considering his track record, it might be yet another unfortunate inevitability.
  • When Punpun was in elementary school, a girl transferred to his class. Her name was Aiko Tanaka, and Punpun fell in love with her at first sight. They quickly became good friends, and even though they parted before middle school, Punpun never stopped thinking about her. Eventually, they crossed paths again as it was some stroke of fate that lead them to meet again. They tried to find happiness together... but it was not meant to be. Their restarted relationship was a terribly codependent one where they saw each other as an escape to happier times rather than they actual people that they are. It came to a head where they were forced on the run after Punpun killed Aiko's abusive stepmother who was trying to kill her, eventually culminating in Aiko taking her own life and Punpun getting arrested and released on parole. A tragic end to a once heartwarming bond. While lacking the toxicity part, Masaya Okonogi and Rise Rousenin had a somewhat similar story; they met as elementary schoolers, with Masaya saving Rise from getting killed by her abusive and mentally unstable mother, and later can get together as a couple, though with a much happier ending. The two can only pity Punpun for the horrendous luck he had in his life and not being able to find true, lasting happiness with Aiko. Not everyone can end up so fortunate in life, perhaps. Punpun doens't know what to do with their condolences. It feel weird and kinda gut-churning to be pitied by others. He decided to just take their words and leave it at that. And yet, after her death, when he stares into the distance, he can see a familiar departed figure in the distance... A mirage, perhaps?
  • Punpun's mother was not the best parent to him. She was the neglectful sort, always giving her son the cold shoulder and generally resenting his existence, as well as being a selfish person overall. A past of having high aspirations and not wanting a child doesn't have a high chance of making good parents out of people. In the end of her life, as she was dying of cancer, Mama Onodera finally realized how awful she was, and apologized to her son with a final declaration of genuine love to him. And yet, despite that heartfelt farewell, Punpun can't bring himself to love her. A life spent with a subpar, distant parent makes it hard to share such feelings. Maisie Farange, who has her experience in neglectful, oft arguing parents, feel bad for Punpun in that he couldn't patch things up with his mom or even had a better support system. Maybe he wouldn't have turned out so bad if someone was out for him... On another hand, Punpun managed to get on some friendly level with Isaac, whose mother tried to hunt down and kill him due to believing what she thinks is the voice of God. Those details remind him greatly of his own God and Aiko's stepmother, making Isaac's story far more hard-hitting for him than he expected. If he met Isaac's mom, would he have to kill her like Mitsuko...? No, he shouldn't think about things like that anymore.
  • An innocent chilhood. Neglectful parents. Uncomfortable sexual experiences. The death of a parent. Reunions with childhood friends. Self-loathing and descents into cynicism. Broken dreams. These are just some of the things that Punpun went through, and so many people have experienced at least one of these things. Punpun's quite the relatable guy, is he not? Even if you're a more fortunate and well-off guy, you might see a part of yourself in him. Punpun doesn't really care if others see him as relatable or not, but he did notice a few others who are also called relatable. Travis Bickle and Patrick Bateman are stuck in a terrible world filled with heartless criminals and vapid yuppies, with corruption leaking from their pores. They know how terrible things really are, how they're different from others... and they also kill lots of people in the meantime. Punpun thinks the two have become too unrelatable for his taste. Most people don't have it in them to regularly end lives, damn it! Yeah, he killed someone once, but he was filled with murderous rage and she was going to kill Aiko anyways. Anyone who thinks they can see themselves in those nutjobs must be super delusional. Punpun wisely decided to not get near those two madmen out of disgust and mild fear that he could be their next victim if he twitches the wrong way. Thankfully, that Holden kid is far better company than those too. He agrees that there's a lot of phonies around in this muddy world, because perhaps he's one too.
  • Punpun's emotions have been so thoroughly whacked that the Emotions that were ascended to encompass all emotions had to conduct a miniature investigation into his psyche. They had to chase a weird bird creature across the Pantheon and saw Punpun's very disturbed life. When they finally reached to the station that Punpun's Emotions occupied, they were very hands off on what Punpun feels because he had shut down his psyche so badly, they rarely had control over what he does. Punpun's Joy especially felt resentful to Punpun as no matter what he did, he would somehow have those brief moments of happiness vanish because something horrid would happen at his hands or not. Not even Punpun's Sadness was able to give Punpun a good emotion, as his blunt acceptance on the cruelties of life had rendered him mostly numb to everything. In the end though, what stopped the Emotions on giving usurping Punpun's Emotions were that Punpun was able to deeply feel emotions especially if it concerned the innocent childhood he longed for. Joy and Sadness are what he mostly feels regarding them now, something that is completely normal for anybody. The Emotions left disturbed but satisfied over what they saw in Punpun's psyche though were more than unsettled when they ran into a giant head that calls itself God as it hurled insult after insult at them.
  • Junko is floored upon hearing what happened to Punpun "on the grape vine" as she says. The amount of despair Punpun faced would have been so grand to see, and thinking about Punpun on the lamb with his girlfriend as things worsened for them make it the equivalent of amazing pornographic material for her. Makoto Naegi who "also heard from the grape vine" on the despair Punpun faced wanted Junko Enoshima and Monokuma to stay as far as hell away from his as possible. He pitied Punpun severely and as a guy who faced much despair himself, he feels a connection to him. Punpun said to both of these people to stop prying on his life and shut the fuck up about hope and despair. Those two concepts should not be echoed as much as they have and them having a war on how people should feel is completely dumb to Punpun.
    Punpun: Go be protective in society. You call yourselves tacky named like Ultimates or something ever stupider like Super High-Schoool Level and all you do is bitch on being happy or sad. Get lives of your own, idiots.
    • Even though he should not, Punpun at least finds Shuichi Saihara to be a respectable person for calling out this stupidity too, having cited that its all more like some twisted entertainment for the people who got dragged to it. From as much as his compliment is worth, Pupun believes that Shuichi by all accounts is a better productive societal member than the other Hope's Peak students. Moreover, Punpun thought having a school dedicated to basically turning a bunch of skilled nobodies to bratty trust fund kids had made him want to go over to that school himself, bury dynamite under it, then blow it up with everyone inside. There is no way in hell his taxes are being used to fund something so stupid.
  • It would have been believed that Despair of the Endless would have been disappointed with Punpun as he seemingly did not succumb to despair after his failed suicide attempt but in truth, Despair of the Endless found Punpun to be one of her better victims. Punpun may still live but has now completely lost optimism for life. Punpun does acknowledge that life will go on regardless but now does not hold hope that life would get better. He would continue living his mediocre life, not having felt guilt for the past but for not having guilt at all. That youth he had loved so much will never be returned to him and the image of Aiko Tanaka he desperately latched onto has faded away with each passing day. Punpun was not driven by his despair to die—Punpun was driven by his despair to live. Despair of the Endless remarked that truly is a sad fate.
  • Much like his uncle opened up to a taxi driver, Punpun and a certain taxi driver had a good heart to heart together. Being driven around by Takuto Maruki, Maruki said that he used to go to the Tanabata festival a lot as a kid and wishes that he could return to those simpler times. Even though Punpun wished Maruki could shut the fuck up, he suddenly blurted out that he agreed on wanting to be young again, without a care in the world. Maruki then asked upon seeing Punpun's discomfort that if there was a world where everybody could be at their happiest without pain, would he take it? Without hesistation, Punpun said that he would kill to have that place, even if it meant sacrificing the world before him. That conversation gave him a lot of perspective on what he truly wanted out of life. Upon leaving Maruki, Punpun gave a rather generous tip for the sake of it much to Maruki's thankfulness.
  • Punpun has become so disillusioned with life, he sees the Phantom Thieves of Heart as nuisances. He kept hearing on their exploits across Japanese society and found them disruptive if anything. He surmised that most Japanese citizens want to live their lives in peace and even though a bunch of thieves who ran around to expose the corrupted sounds cool but nothing has changed. Society has disregarded the Phantom Thieves as mere entertainment then moved on to continue life, as they ought to as Punpun said. If he ever saw a Phantom Thief, Punpun would tell them to get a day job rather than waste time and energy for an ungrateful population who are going to forget them one day. Punpun's philosophy on living life is not be greater than you are as the world does not care for your troubles. As a result, he does not find concern over societal issues because to him, that is a set reality that will never change.
  • As one who dedicates his life to completely ruining other peoples lives, Johan Liebert is greatly amused by Punpun's lifestory. The idea that one man could be reduced to such a pitiful, hopeless state by the people around him, his inner flaws and self-loathing, and general misfortune is nothing but a sublime comedy in his eyes. As such, Punpun became another target in his list, as he anticipates the day he would have a nice little talk with him, crush his remaining hopes and happiness, and bring him back to his lowest periods and perhaps drag him down even deeper than that. Punpun is aware of him, and regards him as simultaneously irritating and terrifying. He experienced more than enough soul-crushing suffering and despair in his lifetime, thank you very much, he doesn't want nor need more. Punpun avoids the dreaded monster whenever possible, knowing that once he's spotted, it's all over for him.
