Senator Steven Armstrong
Steven Armstrong, God of Combat-Capable Politicians (Senator Armstrong)
- Greater God
- Symbol: Metal Gear Excelsus with USA flag in the background
- Theme song: Collective Consciousness (normally), It Has To Be This Way (when fighting Raiden)
- Alignment: Lawful Evil (At first glance. Considering his true motive, he may be more Chaotic Neutral with Lawful Evil methods)
- Portfolio: Well-Intentioned Extremist, Social Darwinist, Cigar Chomper, riding giant mechas, being actually more dangerous than them, Good Old Fisticuffs, Badass Bureaucrat, Friendly Enemy, Crazy Awesome, Applied Phlebotinum, NANOMACHINES, SON.
- Domains: America, Social Darwinism, War.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Bloody Marie, Seryu Ubiquitous (on her end)
- Enemies: Teddy Roosevelt, Mike Haggar, Kiritsugu Emiya, Night Raid, Travis Touchdown, Sam and Max, Ragyo Kiryuin, The Guy, Saxton Hale, Adam Jensen, Bladewolf, Lelouch Zi Britannia, Ange, Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy, Akame, The Phantom Thieves of Hearts (Ren Amamiya, Ryuji Sakamoto, Morgana, Ann Takamaki, Yusuke Kitagawa, Makoto Niijima, Futaba Sakura, Haru Okumura), Cornelia li Britannia, Ezio Auditore
- Opposed by: Chipp Zanuff
- Worthy Opponent: Raiden, Samuel Rodriguez, Saitama
- Special Relationship: Father
- Nothing, absolutely nothing showed that the Senator would go on to be another deity, especially considering how his Metal Gear didn't turn out to be as dangerous as suspected. Having enough of this bullshit, Armstrong stepped out to confront Raiden and... this happened. Suffice to say, GUAE's applause went through the barriers of dimensions. Armstrong later cemented his deification by breaking a HF Blade in his hand like a stick, destroying MG Excelsus in one hit and putting up an epic fight with Raiden (though he ultimately lost in the end).
- Enjoys a good fight every now and then and so is a frequent visitor in House of Combat. People still seem to be surprised that he can be so dangerous.
- Occasionally visits House of Technology as well to strengthen the potential of his nanomachines.
- Because of his deification, University of Texas is currently experiencing an incredible period of prosperity.
- Believes only the strongest will survive, which sometimes puts him at odds with majority of other gods. While his policies are similar to Lucifer's, he was not officially endorsed or allied with the Morningstar for a while due to being Law aligned. Lucifer ultimately pointed out that he doesn't care about the methods, but the outcome. Despite Armstrong's Lawful appearance, his ultimate goal is purely Chaotic: becoming the ruler to destroy all the rules is something Lucifer has no problem with. As such, when he offered a seat amongst the Lords of Chaos to Armstrong, the senator decided to take him up on his offer, taking the Seat of Wrath.
- Wholeheartedly approves of Homura's actions during The Great Upheaval, saying that she's doing exactly what he's advertising, fighting her own war. Needless to say, this didn't bring him any favors within the Pantheon.
- Is currently busy trying to recreate a new version of United States of America where everyone can be truly free and fight their own wars. The number of his supporters rivals that of his opposition.
- When asked if the arts of Combat-Capable Politics was something that was PASSED DOWN THROUGH THE ARMSTRONG LINE FOR GENERATIONS!!... Steven was left unsure how to answer.
- He gets increasingly annoyed whenever someone asks him he's related to Major Alex Louis Armstrong.
- Not the biggest fan of cherry blossoms. Don't bring them up, lest you want to be unable to, quoting the man, carry your box of shit out of the building.
- Currently was called out by Chipp Zanuff that his efforts to be the next president of USA is futile and not very good, and his nanomachines are no match for his ninja skills. Armstrong just awaits the time they actually cross in a fight to see who's right.
- Has expressed interest in getting Liberty Prime on his side. While the robot's idea of what America should be is not necessarily one Armstrong agrees with, anyone who enforces their ideals with Prime's enthusiasm is alright in his book. Plus, having played college ball, he knows a good throwing arm when he sees one. Comments on forming a team among the pantheon have yet gone unanswered.
- Has been compared to Ragyo Kiryuin on a couple of occasions, most notably since both her first fight with Satsuki and his manhandling of Raiden are rather similar in appearance, down to breaking the sword in two in both and the ultimate end of the fight - ripping the heart. Armstrong was actually offended by this, as his motives were to give the people their own reason to fight, while Ragyo is basically "feeding man to space jackets" as he put it. Furthermore, while he may be willing to use Child Soldiers, Ragyo's sexual abuse of her own daughter was plain sickening in his eyes. He is already planning on knocking her down a peg.
- Some people say that he can potentially be the angriest god in the Pantheon. Even when he is just angry, he is 200% mad◊.
- Father has very mixed feelings about Senator Armstrong. On one hand, he sees the potential in his abilities, but on the other hand, he reminds him about his most rebellious son who played an important role in sending him to the Gate of Truth. The fact that he suspects him of being related to Alex Luis Armstrong does little to better his opinions about Steven.
- Once tried to fight Saitama. It went about as well as you'd expect.
- After being revived at House of Life and Death, Armstrong said he respected Saitama's strength.
- The Phantom Thieves hate him for being yet another authority figure who abuses the less powerful, but their hatred of him runs deeper than the usual Lawful Evil tyrant, as he bears a remarkable resemblance to the Shadow form of Masayoshi Shido, their most hated enemy. Ironically, Armstrong respects them more than he does Shido himself, because the Phantom Thieves put their lives on the line for what they believed in, while Shido just sat comfy in his office, making backroom deals and telling others to do his dirty work. It doesn't help that the irony also includes his nationalistic ideology running counter to Armstrong's extremely individualistic worldview (The Thieves at least agree he's not as mean as Shido, but just about as crazy). He does give Shido props for attempting to die as himself before his change of heart finished, but there's still the problem with how he only thought he was in charge when it was God himself (Yaldabaoth, to be exact) who was pulling the strings.
- On that note, he's already complained about how the people can be manipulated through the government and media, so he hates how Yaldabaoth's rigged game involves exactly that, let alone the fact of how the result was to stop them from thinking or acting for themselves and let him be in charge. The way he sees it, that Holy Grail thing apparently isn't a fan of him or what he thinks.
- Ran as a 2016 presidential candidate. Parallels to the real-life race have been noted, but best left be.
Lord Tywin Lannister
Lord Tywin Lannister, God Of Ruthlessly Effective Bureaucrats (Warden of the West, Lord of Casterly Rock, Shield of Lannisport, Hand to the King, Protector of the Realm, Savior/Sacker of King's Landing, Architect of the Red Wedding)

- Alignment: Lawful Evil

- Herald: his brother, Kevan Lannister
- Allies: Lord Varys, Gregor Clegane (his muscle), Cao Cao, Souther, Sundowner, Arthas Menethil, James McCullen/Destro, Kazuya Mishima, The Kurgan, Nobunaga Oda, The Sheriff of Nottingham
- Additional Relationships: Jaime Lannister, Tyrion Lannister (his sons), Cersei Lannister (his daughter) (all disowned)

- Opposes: Johan Liebert (even Tywin thinks he's batshit insane), Johann Schmidt/Red Skull, Sun Ce (as he reminds him of Robb Stark)
- Opposed By: For ordering both the Sack of King's Landing (resulting in the deaths of Princess Elia Martell and her children) and the Red Wedding (resulting in the deaths of Robb Stark, Talisa Stark, and Catelyn Stark), every good parent (and a couple of bad ones) in The Pantheon
- Odd Friendship: with Alexander the Great
- Worthy Opponents: Lelouch vi Britannia, Maximus Decimus Merdius, Lord Castellon Ursarkar E. Creed, Tavi of Calderon
- Ascended to the Pantheon after suffering a terminal case of crossbow bolt to the bowels thanks to his youngest son (and also proving once and for all that he does not shit gold). He was supposed to spend eternity as a damned soul, tortured by the ghosts of Tarbeck and Reyne, but found himself at the Pantheon instead.
- He was greeted by Lord Varys, who tells him the truth behind his grandchildren, of Cersei and Jamie's relationship, and of how he had brought House Stark to ruin due to the actions of Littlefinger and his eldest children, as well as Baelish conspired with Olenna Tyrell in poisoning Joffrey (and proving Tyrion's innocence). Tywin is wary of The Spider, until he presents him Ser Gregor Clegane, who had ascended before him. This act hs earned Tywin's trust. Despite this, Tywin is wise enough to avoid Ned Stark, who is looking to make Tywin shorter by the height of his head. Now, Tywin decides to play the game of thrones to extend his power and influence in the Pantheon.
- Tywin is a very hard man to impress. But he is very impressed with his avatar in reenacting his exploits on the screen.
- "A Lannister always pays his debts." That phrase alone is an invite for those who do good in his eyes, and a warning not to screw with the Lion. And as Tywin found out via crossbow-bolt to the bowels, it goes both ways, Tyrion cashed in the debt that Daddy owed him for years of emotional abuse. And let's not forget what Tywin had done to his first wife...
- Speaking of Tyrion, he wasn't very happy when Daenerys had brought The Imp along as one of her Heralds. Now, Tyrion is deified alongside his elder brother, which really pisses him off.
- Speaking of Tyrion, he once got into a staring match with Raoh when the King of Fists mocked him as to how he was slain. "The Imp proved one thing. You really can't shit gold." Tywin lost.
- His theme song, The Rains of Castamere, is a a reminder of what will happen if anyone crosses him, as it tells the story of House Reyne of Castamere, who rebelled against his father. Tywin crushed the rebellion...with extreme prejudice. He enjoys hearing the song. His enemies...well, not so much. Just don't play it at weddings, as violence tends to ensue. The Pantheon, however, is not intimidated by the tune, much to Tywin's dismay.
- According to ''Forbes'' magazine, he is worth $2.1 billion. Not too shabby, but he's not the richest man in the Pantheon. But he's working at it.
- As he was the one who gave the order to butcher the Targaryen royal family and masterminded the Red Wedding, he is not very well-liked by the deities who are parents themselves. Add the fact that Talisa Stark's death was particularly gruesome (as she was pregnant), and he is No.1 on their shit list.
- When asked by Nobunaga Oda to why he ordered the Red Wedding, Tywin responded with the following: "Explain to me why it is more noble to kill 10,000 men in battle than a dozen at dinner." Nobunaga replied by saying, "If you kill a dozen men at dinner, then you are a murderer. If you kill 10,000 men on the battlefield, then you are a conqueror." The two men became friends after the fact.
- Tywin is absolutely irate at Littlefinger for kicking off the catastrophic war by leading Catelyn Stark to Tyrion, which would ultimately lead to his demise at the hands of said son. Littlefinger was also responsible for revealing to the Pantheon his role in the Red Wedding.
- While Doctor Doom disagrees with Tywin's methods in dealing with the former royal family and of how he crippled the Starks, he does respect Tywin for not only bringing his famiky back from the brink, but also making the Lannisters the power behind the Iron Throne in the Seven Kingdoms. But he did tell Tywin that he should have done better with his children. Tywin's response? "I know."
- Visits the House of Commerce with the intention of expanding his influence there. Of course, Littlefinger makes himself scarce whenever Tywin is in the area. He is smart enough to give Smaug a wide berth, as there are rumors going around that he is in cahoots with Daenerys Targaryen.
- Unfortunately for him, those rumors turned out to be very true, as not only did the daughter of the Mad King have ascended, but she has become allies with Smaug.
- Upon hearing of Jamie's ascension to the Pantheon, he summoned his son for a meeting. Jamie refused. When Tywin himself demanded that Jamie returns to his side, Jamie had calmly replied, "A son with no family and no hand needs all the help he can get," throwing his words back into his face.
- Has a surprisingly cordial and mutually respectful relationship with Lord Vetinari, which is only enhanced by the two sharing Charles Dance as an avatar. However, the two are fully cognizant that they are likely to be enemies, and will have no qualms about opposing each other under those circumstances.
- Tywin has disowned not only his sons, but Cersei as well, due to her using part of Aerys the Mad's wildfire stash to blow up the Great Sept. What really pisses him off is that Kevan Lannister and his son Lancel we're among the casualties, thus making Cersei not only a Kingslayer (for having Robert Baratheon killed), but also a Queenslayer (due to Margaery Tyrell being one of the casualties) and a kinslayer.
- Like many members of the Pantheon, he grew worried on hearing Stannis had ascended.
Mike Haggar, God of Mayors (Haggar, Mayor of Earth, "Macho", The Mayor Elect of Whoopass)
- Theme Song: Turn the Beat Back (MvC3 Edition)
- Lesser God
- Symbol: A lead iron pipe
- Alignment: Lawful Good
- Portfolio: Badass Mayors, Papa Bears, Professional Wrestling, Gentle Giant, With Authority Comes Badassery, Pipe Fighting, Mustache Of Asskicking, Manliness
- Domains: Justice, Wrestling, Family
- Followers: Wandering Vagabond, Mayor Mare, Boss Nigger, Lucas Simms, Guildmistress Veronica, The Mayor of Ink City, Mayor Manx
- Allies: Ryu, Zangief, King II, Steve Rogers/Captain America, Asura, Poison (former enemy), Axel Stone, Adam Hunter, Blaze Fielding, Cody Travers
- Upon deification, Haggar elevated Metro City into a Holy City, purging it from the Mad Gear gang. But then other evil entities have began to target it. Haggar is always ready to toss them out any time.
- Just recently, his Metro City was instead raided not by Mad Gear, but a nefarious syndicate led by a certain Mr. X. Thankfully for Haggar, he received help by the recently ascended Axel, Adam, and Blaze, those who had experience dealing with Mr. X thrice, and helped Haggar completely drove Mr. X and his syndicate out of Metro City once. It was said that the streets of Metro City was full of ass-kicking rage during the cleanup day. They became great allies afterwards.
- When not doing paperwork, Haggar spends his spare time either visiting his mortal daughter Jessica, or piledriving MOTHERFUCKIN' SHARKS.
- His position was strengthened further when he piledrived another God (Odin) from space. And all faithful balladeers cry out in zealous joy, "ROUND CLEAR!"
- There were rumors that he might've lost position after being beaten by King II in a wrestling match. An interview later, it is both agreed that both Haggar and King gave their all for a great wrestling match and they're equal in power. They became friends afterwards.
- He once clashed with Zangief, and even though the former won in their fight, Haggar doesn't take it badly. There were rumors that there was another match◊, and Haggar won, making their stance to be a draw◊.
- Upon her arrival, Poison went up to him and, instead of being mad, asked that maybe one day that Haggar joins her wrestling federation, or at least challenge it when she has a big enough crew. Haggar accepted the challenge.
Prime Minister Honest

- On speaking terms with: The House of Slaughter, Oryx
- One-sided rivalry with: Tywin Lannister, Jafar
- Enemies: All Night Raid members (especially Leone), The Phantom Thieves of Hearts (especially Goro Akechi, John Hartigan, Lord Varys, Teru Mikami, Marv, Oberyn Martell, The Basterds, Frank Castle, Phoenix Wright, Cersei Lannister, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Shay Patrick Cormac, Toxie, Cornelia li Britannia, Nunnally Lamperouge, Boa Hancock, Jacob and Evie Frye
- Opposes: Deities who are Chaotic Good, Pay Evil unto Evil or have high integrity
- Banned from: The House of Royalty
- The Empire of Akame Ga Kill is a corrupt institution, where political corruption and decadence has become the norm. At the heart of this rot is the ironically named Prime Minister Honest. Theoretically under the control of the Emperor, he has been manipulating the Puppet King so as to continue his hedonistic lifestyle. Though he seems clownish, almost jolly Honest is everything that can wrong with a political adviser.
- Though a surprisingly skilled fighter, he's not as skilled or smart than he thinks. He mainly relies on Esdeath, who he has a professional and business-like relationship. He sees himself as the like-minded rival of Tywin Lannister and Jafar. Tywin has laughed this off, stating Honest is more Aerys at his most slovenly. While originally holding the role of Evil Chancellor, Jafar sees little talent in him.
- He has been trying to get his greedy mitts on the House of Royalty. He isn't allowed entry because of his scheming towards the Emperor. This hasn't deterred him from one day desiring mastery of the house. Oryx tolerates him because of his close alliance to Esdeath, but doesn't like his cowardice as the ruthless should have valor to back it up. He'll send out Hive and some Taken to help him out, but only sparingly and with Esdeath's insistence.
- Night Raid was not happy to learn that he had ascended, especially Leone given she killed him(anime) or gave him to the angry populace(manga). Neither was Honest, but he was more worried about the Phantom Thieves of Heart. As the epitome of political corruption, arguably more so than Masayoshi Shido, he's one of their main targets for HeelFace Brainwashing (if only the Meta-Nav would register his name as a real name, though
). Goro really wants his hands on him due to being like his despicable father.
- One can also add the ascended Assassins (Ezio and the Fryes) and Shay (the only ascended Templar) to the list, as Honest's worldview goes against both of their creeds.
- Usually seen indulging himself in sweets, having once dislocated his jaw like a snake to eat a cake whole. People wondered if he was even human, and recent evidence suggests he's been consuming human flesh to add to his strength. He has spent a lot of money in Food, and became a good friend of fellow Villainous Glutton Jabba the Hutt.
- Seeks to perpetuate corruption as long as possible in hopes of continuing his gluttonous behavior, and twist the Emperor into an extension of himself as a means of living on. As the Trope Pantheons is in the middle of the Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism rather than in the cynical side, it's a lot harder for him here. He hopes to use the likes of Dolores Umbridge and Manfred Von Karma to rig the system in his favor, the former of which thrives in governmental debauchery.
- One of Honest's biggest allies is Ethan Roark Junior. The Yellow Bastard notes him to be very similar to his own corrupt father; a psychopath who allows scum like himself and Kevin to get away with their crimes and is the main reason for the Crapsack World setting. This has put him on the hit list of both John Hartigan and Marv, who recognize him being similar to the Roark family patriarch and plan to take him down.
- Works well with other leaders steeped in corruption and depravity. Good friends with Napoleon, as they're both pigs in one way or another. And with Aegon the Unworthy, as they're both bloated leaders who allow debauchery to fester for their hedonistic lifestyles.
- Evil appears to be In the Blood for Honest. A distant relative of his used his name to kidnap and torture girls, and his son Syura is equal parts Spoiled Brat and sadistic Serial Rapist. Much like the Yellow Bastard actually, which is probably why Honest is fond of him. Admittedly he doesn't care about his son that much, given this is how he reacted. He's thinking of forming a more organized form of Wild Hunt with some of the psychos in the pantheon like Wyald and Gregor Clegane. He visits the House of Slaughter to get tips of torture and other obscene activities.
- Due to the corruption he represents, Oberyn Martell and the Basterds want to bring justice for him, particularly the Red Viper due to many of his personal monsters reminding him of the Mountain's obscene cruelty. Honest fears his Poisoned Weapons as he knows Gregor's slow and agonizing expiration was in part because of how resilient his body was. Having made his own body resilient and being able to have his torturous death prolonged because of this causes him to further fear Oberyn.
- A number of evil and/or morally dubious deities want him dead. Teru Mikami sees him, like general laziness and other corrupt politicians, as one of the biggest problems in the world. He tried writing his name, but since "Honest" isn't much of a name, the Death Note didn't work (also a reason why the Phantom Thieves of Hearts can't get to him via the Metaverse, either). Varys wants to get rid of him to better the realm. Cersei however wants him gone for personal reasons-she knows what he's done to the Emperor, she doesn't want his mitts on her easily manipulated son Tommen.
Ethan Roark Senior
Ethan Roark Senior, God of Corrupt Politicians (Senator Roark)
- Symbol: An electoral poster for his senatorial campaign
- Alignment: Neutral Evil
- Portfolio: Sleazy and Corrupt Politicians, Screw the Rules, I Make Them!, Ultimate Source Of Vice In Basin City, Needs Grandkids To Carry On His Legacy, Karma Houdini (for the time being), Gonk (Less So In The Movies), Sore Loser, Psychological Sadist, Til Murder Do Us Part, Diabolical Mastermind
- Domains: Sleaze, Corruption, Covering Up, Lies, Criminality, Legacy
- Herald: His older brother, Cardinal Patrick Henry Roark
- Allies: Ethan Roark Junior (his son), Kevin (by proxy of his brother), Prime Minister Honest, Judge Claude Frollo, Wild Hunt, Diavolo and his crew, Manny Pardo, Nikolai Bulygin
- Headbutting Villains with: The Brave Companions
- Enemies: JOHN HARTIGAN, Marv, The Phantom Thieves of Hearts (yes, that still includes Goro Akechi), every good and/or honest member of the House of Justice (particularly those who are cops, Sirius Black and Chris Hansen), Oberyn Martell, Bruce Wayne/Batman, Night Raid, Giorno Giovanna and his Passione, Light Yagami and his allies, Senator Steve Armstrong, James T Kirk, Optimus Prime, Jean-Luc Picard, Commander Shepard (Paragon)
- Wary of: Sheev Palpatine, Isaac Wescott
- Ethan Roark Senior is the politically minded member of the corrupt Roark family, having its hands in Basin City since the Gold Rush. Rich, corrupt and sleazy, the senator is effectively in control of the city, better known as Sin City. It's a place where corruption is king, honesty is lethal and power comes from lying. And as senator, he'd have it be that way forever so long as he and his family can benefit from it.
- He and his family are free to engage in any vice he wishes, and nobody's going to testify against them and live. Well, at least in Basin City. Upon his ascension he's been warned that the Trope Pantheon is not Sin City, and he can't just threaten and bribe every cop and politician to get what he wants. Roark countered that while it may be true, there's enough corrupt people in the pantheon that he can still benefit from. He's more here to bolster his power in Sin City anyway.
- Naturally despised by every good and honest member of the House of Justice, a concept that is borderline non-existent in his city. He can't bully them like he could back home, and Roark intends to change that. Many in his own house walk on eggshells around him. There is one cop he gets on with-Nikolai Bulygin, who brutally enforces "justice" or more accurately making up whatever rules he can just because he's powerful. He's happy to help Senator Roark in putting the "lawless bugs" (read:honest cops and those that get in his way) in their supposed place.
- The father of Ethan Roark Junior, and the main reason why the Yellow Bastard was able to get away with his activities. Less him caring for the guy, but more out of principle. He was the one who reconstructed his genitals because he wanted grandchildren. He wanted him to be the first Roark to be president, but realizes his personality is completely unsuited. He'd try to have another child, but since he killed his wife with a bat that's not going to happen.
- Despised by Oberyn Martell for letting his psychopath of a son have free reign to rape and kill little girls, as it reminds him of how Tywin permitted Gregor Clegane to commit his atrocities on the Martell family and allowed him to get away from his depravity. Chris Hansen has declared him an enemy as well due to how he aids his monstrous son.
- Gets along with Prime Minister Honest. They're the source of corruption and decadence in their respective settings, and are just as sleazy and corrupt as each other. Also they have a complete psychopath of a son who's sadism causes more problems than solutions. Key difference is that Roark is more dignified and competent. He has Wild Hunt on loan to do his dirty work. Sometimes hires the Brave Companions, but at arm's length because of their Stupid Evil tendencies.
- Though skilled at keeping his city as sinful as it is, Roark knows he's out of his league compared to Palpatine or Isaac Wescott. He couldn't get a Roark as president, much less compare to their ambition
- Has ties to organized crime, more so because he needs that criminal element to help him out in the pantheon and to darken the setting he's found himself in so he can better benefit. Given the company that is his family a lot of the organized crime gods replied "maybe if you clean up your act a bit and disown your monster of a son, we'll talk". Giorno Giovanna and his crew declared them enemies as they took control of the mafia to end the kind of corruption Sin City sees.
- Though the current Passione is his enemies, Diavolo is perfectly happy to work with Senator Roark if it means he can make a lot of money off his drugs through shipping to Basin City, and Diavolo can help keep Giorno's gang away from Basin City. He's perfectly willing to cover up Frollo given he's a depraved priest just like his own brother, and Manny Pardo has he could have use for a murderous cop.
- Concerned with the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, since he is exactly the kind of rotten adult they're trying to change the heart of. Goro Akechi takes the most contempt to him because Senator Roark reminds him of his horribly corrupt and sociopathic father Masayoshi Shido, not to mention Roark's attitude towards his own illegitimate son Johnny. Or being beaten in a card game.
- Despite his own villainy, Light Yagami despises Roark for being the very corrupt authority figure that must be purged from his vision of a perfect world. Senator Armstrong sees him as the kind of miserable slog that gets in the way of an America where people can fight and die for what they believe in, and is frustrated by the sleazy senator sharing the same sub-house as him.
Mayor of Townsville
The Mayor of Townsville, God of Incompetent Mayors (Barney)
- Symbol: A jar of pickles with clear fingerprints
- Alignment: Lawful Stupid
- Portfolio: The Ditz, Mayor Pain, Almighty Mayor And Always Will Be, Lethally Stupid, Took a Level in Dumbass But Not Without His Smart Moments, Loves Pickles, Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass, Nice Hat (Don't Take Or Else), Manchild, Everyone Calls Him Mayor, High-Class Glass
- Domains: Pickles, Townsville, Incompetence, Leadership
- High Priest: Mayor Joe Quimby
- Followers: Mr Heartland, Mayor Shelbourne, Mayor Clancy, Mayor Scuttlebutt
- Allies: The Powerpuff Girls, Professor Utonium, Ice King, Prismo, Billy, Stocking Anarchy, Roscoe P Coltrane, Cornelius Oswald Fudge
- Enemies: Mojo Jojo, HIM, Princess Morbucks, Archibald Snatcher, The Brainspawn
- Opposes: The House of Crime
- Opposed by: The more intelligent and capable members of his house
- Herald: His secretary, Sara Bellum.
- The Mayor (real name Barney) is the conspicuous and seemingly permanent mayor of Townsville. Despite his role as mayor, he's not that good at it and constantly calls for the Powerpuff Girls' help. Childish and idiotic, it's for the best that his secretary is competent enough to balance him out.
- Despite his incompetence, the Mayor of Townsville has managed to keep his position in spite of everything. He did end up being replaced once by Fuzzy Lumpkins, however won back his position in a wrestling match with Fuzzy. Not a fighter, but if you try to take his hat your ass is grass. He considers Archibald Snatcher a grave enemy because he would do anything, no matter how evil, to have a hat denoting position and authority.
- Dreams of being a buff and intelligent mayor, in a city made of pickles and everyone having his face. While the latter two are pipe dreams, the former is why he joined Leadership as he wants to be a better mayor. It hasn't gone so far, and most of his house don't care for him. Cornelius Oswald Fudge does seem to sympathize with his plight given his own incompetence in leadership.
- Really likes pickles, and always has a jar of them around. Often he'll call for the Powerpuff Girls to open it when he can't, though to prevent the girls being interrupted during important crimefighting the Grand United Alliance of Good has made sure any jar he gets is easy to get off, with a jar opening machine if he somehow messes that up. He met with Prismo and befriended him due to loving his pickles. Prismo has ignored any pickle-based wish though since it would be a waste.
- Asides from pickles, he also likes bananas and candy. He has a jar of candies, which once offered the girls one every time they saved the day. This caused them to hold the Jerkass Ball and ended up apologizing, though this ended with them all stuffed from more candy. He also likes turkish delights, which Princess Morbucks once took his position for a whole bunch of them. Likes to have sweets with Stocking Anarchy.
- Usually calling the Powerpuff Girls over his phone, and has many telephones in his position. He also has a wife, but they don't get along much given he's more interested in his secretary and would've traded her for a priceless, one of a kind porcelain poodle. Those involved with communication in the pantheon get rather annoyed by calling for even minuscule problems.
- Tired of relying in the Powerpuff Girls, he once tried to be a hero in his own right. It backfired due to treating even the smallest transgressions as worthy of a boxing glove, forcing the girls to save the city from him. The House of Justice has told him not to get involved, though Roscoe P Coltrane understands where he's coming from due to his own Lawful Stupid nature.
- Like Billy he's really stupid, and seems to get along with him for that reason. He's not totally lacking in intelligence however, like the time he solved Him's riddle "what is boiling and freezing at the same time". Still really stupid though, given when the Robbing Leech, who's capable of sucking important information from people, couldn't get anything from him. The Brainspawn are somewhat concerned he was immune to their stupefaction rays because they couldn't make him any stupider.
- He sounds like Spongebob and the Ice King. He seems to get along with the latter.
