Overdeities

    Culumon/Calumon 
Culumon, God of Empowering Evolution (Calumon, Kululumon, Digi-Entelechy, The Light of Digivolution, the Catalyst)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Calumon_4649.gif
  • Overdeity (not suited for fighting)
  • Symbol: The Zero-Unit on his forehead
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Evolution itself, Ridiculously Cute Critter, cheerful and optimistic, sought by many for its power, Expressive Ears, Ear Wings, ending sentences with "-kuru"
  • Domains: Evolution, Mons, Cuteness, The Internet
  • Allies: Most Digimon, especially Dukemon, Renamon and Beelzemon, any Tamers or Digidestined (canonical or pantheonic), Radical Ed, Kirito & Asuna, many Mythical Pokémon, Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf, the sub-House of Children, GUAG White Hats
  • Enemies: Mesogog, Love Machine
  • Uneasy around: Millenniumon & Diaboromon
  • Bullied by: Rotom
  • Culumon looks like a particularly weak Rookie-level Digimon, but he is actually the very concept of Digivolution given a tangible form. It was so done by Qinglongmon as a way of slowing down Digimons' evolution process in order to avoid awakening the D-Reaper, a deletion program. When that was proven not to be enough, he was sent out into the human world, where he made many friends who protected him from forceful retrieval attempts ordered by Zhuqiaomon. Culumon's power of evolution proved instrumental in stopping the undefeatable D-Reaper as he used it to cause Digimon to achieve their Mega levels, making them powerful enough to at least slow down the D-Reaper's progress.
  • Although mons are arguably the most famous users of the trope, the Main House was none too keen on giving Evolution Power-Up to any random mon, be they Pokemon or Digimon or something else, given how widespread the phenomenon is among those species. Then, the GUAG's White Hats brought attention to Culumon, the Catalyst of Digimons' evolution, and considering everything already stated above, it was determined he was an excellent choice for the trope.
  • His presence in the Pantheon was first detected in a section of Space Paranoids, Tron's homeworld. Kirito and Asuna happened to be there, enjoying themselves with their daughter Yui, when they spotted Culumon running away from Love Machine. Kirito and Asuna sent the evil AI packing, and Yui approached him in her fairy form so as to not scare him, and she and her parents brought him into the real world so the White Hats could investigate him, as Yui had identified him as not being a Digimon. Omegamon and Dukemon quickly identified him, so the Pantheon could rest easy that Culumon wasn't any computer virus. Yui was happy as she enjoyed playing with Culumon and asked her parents if she could keep him. After some thought, Kirito and Asuna told her that having a pet (even a virtual one) was a big responsibility, but as long as she was aware of that, then she could keep him. Yui happily said it was a deal.
    • Culumon, being easily distracted, still tends to wander off a lot and occasionally get himself in danger. Whenever this happens, Yui worries that she's failed to keep her promise to her parents, but Kirito and Asuna have figured out that that's just Culumon's personality and don't blame Yui. Culumon loves his friend Yui though, so he always comes back. Sometimes, when other deities see them together, they joke about their blood sugar levels spiking.
    • Culumon thinks of himself as a Digimon despite his true nature, and likes being treated as such. When his strong bond with Yui failed to yield a digivice, it served as a sad reminder for him. He figured that was fine since he couldn't fight, so he would not be able to protect Yui anyways. Yui assured him that just because they don't have a digivice, that doesn't mean they're not partners. She added that she doesn't need a protector and that she'd be the one to do that for him. She's certainly more than capable of doing so.
    • His adorable appearance made him a hit with Kirito's female friends. Culumon finds Suguha and Yuuki (and sometimes Asuna joins in too) constantly cooing over him to be fairly chafing.
    • As for how he ended up in Space Paranoids in the first place, it's theorized that either Qinglongmon or Yggdrasil did it so he'd be considered for the Pantheon.
  • Culumon may not be able to fight per se, but he's pretty good as support; he's been reported as having surprisingly high defenses, for one. And not only does his Shining Evolution technique allow Digimon to automatically reach Mega level, he also has Culumon Prayer, which removes status conditions and raises defense for allies. Since these are helpful abilities, the White Hats sometimes borrow him before going on expeditions on the web.
  • Is considered a friend of every Digimon, since he is the force that allows them to grow and become powerful. Because of this, not even Millenniumon and Diaboromon go after him, and might even protect him alongside the other Digimon sometimes, though that doesn't mean they're exactly chummy either, as Culumon finds them quite scary and hates it when they hurt his friends. He's learned to get used to Millenniumon, though, given that he is safely under the control of the unambiguously good Radical Ed, who Culumon really likes.
    • The Numemon are less happy with him, since Numemon are the undesirable results of evolution gone wrong. They tend to change their tune if they manage to evolve further into something like Monzaemon or Laylamon.
  • He's always happy to meet and hang out with any Tamers and Digidestined, both canonical and Pantheonic. He and Radical Ed can frequently be seen having fun messing around the Pantheon. Lisbeth Salander was annoyed by his boisterousness at first, but eventually found him endearing.
  • As he spends most of his time at the House of Family with Yui, he's naturally found a lot of playmates in the sub-House of Children, thanks to his own childlike and playful personality.
  • Culumon is a literal force of nature, and it's expected that some people want to harness that power for their own purposes. That was true in the mortal realm and it remains true in the Pantheon. Specifically, Mesogog is very interested in capturing him and finding a way to channel his evolutionary powers to achieve his goal of turning humans into dinosaurs.
    • For this reason, Culumon gets along with some Pokemon who have the same problem; Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Shaymin, Victini, etc., in addition to the Lake Trio, have also had to deal with certain people wanting to capture them for some nefarious goal or another. It helps that they have similar personalities to Culumon, in that they're childlike and playful.
  • For whatever reason (probably that Culumon is so innocent that he's an easy target), Rotom has taken a liking to seeking out Culumon just to pick on him. Usually the ghostly Pokemon does this by turning into its fan form and blowing Culumon out of the air, making the Digimon fall to the ground, after which it chases him around in mow form. If Yui happens to show up, Rotom will panic and make a run for it, knowing what the AI girl is capable of, even though Yui would not do more than give it a stern talk.

  • Good Counterpart to: Phoenix (Heart Only)
  • Heart, Brain, and Medic, were first introduced as enemies of Kamen Rider Drive and the Special Investigation Unit, whose goal is to reach the Over Evolve Forms in order to become one of the "Promised Numbers" so that they can use their powers to initiate the "Second Global Freeze". However, things are getting worse for them when their creator Tenjuro Banno, who had gained the means to become Gold Drive, has taken over the leadership over the remaining Roidmudes with Heart had no choice but to serve him after Banno managed to brainwashed Medic until Brain sacrificed his own life to restore her, which causes Heart and Medic formed an Enemy Mine with the Special Investigations Unit's Kamen Riders to stop Banno's plans for taking over the world for himself. The cause of their evolution into their Golden Super Modes was what allowed Heart, Brain, and Medic, to take the throne of the said trope.
    • Before their proper ascension in the pantheon, Heart, Brain, and Medic, were accidentally revived in the mortal world, with their consciousness are shared in a new Roidmude body that was meant to revive Chase, with Heart served the main of the three, armed with a new Drive Driver, Shift Brace, and a new Shift Car that would eventually become the Shift Heartron. Along the way, they found the resolved to protect humanity from the new threat, known as Roidmude 5886, an amalgamation of all Roidmudes who were previously destroyed by the Kamen Riders, with Heart gained the means to become Kamen Rider Heart, he managed to defeat 5886 with the help of Brain and Medic's powers, at the cost of their own Roidmude Core's existence.
  • As they enter the pantheon, the three Roidmudes were initially seen in their core forms after their bodies were destroyed in the mortal world. Luckily, the trio managed to regain their bodies by hijacking some of Banno's newly made Roidmude bodies from one of SHOCKER's base before they sabotage the base and escape upon their reactivation, much to Banno and the organization's dismay.
  • Both Shinnosuke and Chase were happy to see them again in the pantheon as Heart, Brain and Medic now treats his old enemies as their allies after they gave up their ambitions during their final battle against Banno. Go also changed his view on them as well after he learned their last act of heroism during their short-lived resurrection. Because of their actions, Mr. Belt gives Heart his own copy of the Drive Driver and the Shift Heartron, while fixing the errors on his transformation based on his overall battle data, allowing him to transform into Kamen Rider Heart once more.
  • Due to them achieving their own Golden Super Modes, they've associate themselves with good-aligned deities who achieved similar power-ups to their own such as Domon Kasshu, Sonic the Hedgehog, and every good-aligned ascended Saiyans like Son Goku. Speaking of the Saiyans, they also pay respects to them for being the ones who started this type of power-ups in the first place. However, they don't like Broly for using his powers for destructive means.
  • They were happened to be former followers of Ultron due to their similar backgrounds being mechanical lifeforms that were create as evil beings by their respective scientists. However, they don't share anything in common as of this point since they already see that not all humans are pure evil at all while the trio grew their disgust with Ultron because of his never-ending quest to destroy humanity, which they made a point to stop his plans even further.
  • Both Heart and Medic are happened to be friends with Rio and Mele as both of them were once act as Foils to the heroes of their respective eras, before they turned good by joining the heroes to deal with a bigger threat. Both Rio and Mele are vowed themselves to support Heart, Brain, and Medic in their battle against Banno after they feel disgusted toward the Roidmude creator upon learning of his horrendous act towards his creations, which reminds them of how Long used them for his own ends.
  • Heart has found a support in the form of Kaito Kumon, as both of them are honorable rivals to the heroic Kamen Riders of their respective eras. Both Heart and Kaito were also saddened of how they end up after they learned their respective Dark and Troubled Past. Because of this, the two of them started to team up in their respective battles since then.
  • At some point, Heart was seen spending his time alone in the House of Friendship, trying to make friends with them. He is later approached by Gentaro Kisaragi in that said house, the two quickly became friends as Gentaro feels sympathy for his race after he learned his race's terrible past from Shinnosuke, wishing that he could extend his friendship to them if they never get themselves corrupted by their creator. Heart was also feel bad for Gentaro after he learned of what he'd been through during the events of Project: Alternate!Gentaro and he vows to avoid this tragedy again.
  • Heart has been seen hanging around with the Pretty Cure Mana Aida. The two of them have bonded due to to the fact that both of their alias are associated with the word "heart".
  • Heart is often seen as the Good Counterpart to Phoenix as both of them are red-colored battle-enthusiastic monsters of their respective groups. However, neither of them are alike in common as Heart has vowed to stop the rampaging Phoenix to prevent the Phantom from causing chaos in the pantheon.
  • Due to his profession as an analyzer to his group, Brain has started to help Dexter and Houka Inumuta in their research to strengthen the GUAG in order to counter their foes in their upcoming battles. While both Dexter and Houka aren't comfortable to work alongside Brain at first, but they quickly get over due to the fact that he's now on the good side as of now.
  • Brain became friends with a certain white mouse who is also named Brain as both of them are tries to be villainous as possible during their tenures in the past and both have their soft spots towards the ones they care the most, even though they despise them at first.
  • Medic was once a follower of Yuno Gasai due to her yandere tendency towards Heart during her days as a villain and both sypathizes each other due to the fact that they endured the pain of being mistreated by their respectove abusers which is the reason why they ended up so badly in the first place. Medic was also surprised that Yuno also hates Banno's guts for his mistreatment towards his children and his creations as Medic starts to assist Yuno in their fight against Banno.
  • Medic is good friends with Yoko Minato, since both have an undying love towards their respective love interest. They were also seen supporting Heart and Kaito in their battles against evil whenever they try to cause chaos in the pantheon.
  • She is often seen hanging around with a fellow former villain named Vector as both were once corrupted into evil in their respective past. While both of them were happy to hear that they found redemption in the end, both of them are vow to prevent the same mistakes they to others so they can live a better life.
  • Medic has a deep hatred on those who forced others to become evil against their will to further their own agendas. As such, she has sympathy towards Litchi Faye-Ling and Mikan Tsumiki, who were also victims of this kind of treatment.
  • While they finally became an ally to humanity, they still retain their hatred only on those who are a complete bastards like Banno, which is he reason why they attacked humanity in the first place. The same goes to Banno's allies like SHOCKER, Nobuyuki Sugou, Junko Enoshima, Embryo, Ragyo Kiryuin, Relius Clover, and Dr. Weil, considering their actions are comparable to their main arch-nemesis and they make a point to stop their evil ways to prevent any further casualties.

  • Enemies: Ainz Ooal Gown, Alex Mercer, Skarsnik, Warboss Ghazghkull, Baby Bonnie Hood, Metallix, indiscriminate monster hunters who can't/won't behave themselves around him
  • Pities: Ainz Ooal Gown, Gertrude
  • When it comes to isekai stories, it's common for the protagonist to gain a "cheat" skill that grants them unique or broken abilities before they start doing anything else in that other world, so long as it allows them to be superior to the world's regular mortals. It's also usually granted during reincarnation, and bestowed or acquired by the resident deity during the process. The Court of the Gods eventually found the tale of a man named Satoru Mikami, who was stabbed to death in the middle of the street, and was then reincarnated in another world as a slime. But there's more to it than that.
    • As he was dying, he had gained the following perks for his next life: besides Predator and Great Sage, he acquired Resistances to heat, physical attacks, cold, thermal fluctuation, electric current, paralysis, and pain (the last being outright nullified), and a body that doesn't require blood (hence, a slime body).
    • He gained several more along the way like water pressure propulsion, regeneration, the ability to sense magic (and therefore acquired colored vision), movement in water, water manipulation, poison and paralysis breath, Instant Armor, thread both for Webbing and Razor Wire purposes, Shadow Step, fire manipulation, create clone bodies (which retain a tenth of their original's vigor and magic, though movement and attack remain unchanged), lightning manipulation, and so much more.
    • Thanks to these perks, the Court of the Gods sent an envoy to the world he's now from. They found the Jura Tempest Federation, requested a private audience with Rimuru, and applied the standard amnestics to plug premature leaks of everything about the Pantheon, even rendered inscrutable and/or non-suspicious to Rimuru's Great Sage skill.
    • However, due to unknown temporal issues that prevent the Pantheon's envoy (in this case, Cosmos of the GUAG) from contacting Rimuru in his most recent, they're forced to contact him from after his becoming a Demon Lord at the conclusion of the Falmas Kingdom's attack on the Jura Tempest Federation.
    • It is known that he's since done much more and can even access any point in space-time, but for now, immediate post-True Demon Lord status will be the furthest he'll be at upon ascending to the Pantheon.
    • Upon being briefed on the specifics, Rimuru accepted the offer, and shortly joined the GUAG since her interests and his are compatible.
  • Rimuru is often seen in one of two guises; his default slime form, and his humanoid form he acquired after assimilating Shizue's body at her request. The Court also granted him the form of his previous life as Satoru Mikami, but he doesn't use that often as he's long since moved on from that life.
  • One should note that even if he might be a slime, that does not mean he's a low-level Mook that can be easily handled. If one can sense his aura (it was a surprise to him that not everyone in the Pantheon can do so), one would find it surprisingly imposing. Even then, he can suppress it, or even mask it completely. It had been a surprise for him the first time he had to fight someone who clearly had no idea who they were up against until he proved them wrong. That's why when he's in dangerous or unknown territory, he's in his humanoid form more.
  • When it comes to healing, at first, he used to consume the patient, use the healing potion substance in him on the patient, and then eject them good as new. Nowadays, with water manipulation, he instead forms globules of the stuff he can easily toss to those in need. These potions are so potent they can even restore lost limbs, and diluting them to a tenth still lets them work as well as a standard X-Potion.
  • While he can copy techniques from any book he "consumes" and "spits out", he still has to practice them to make them useful.
    • Speaking of books, give him paper, something he knows, and he can "print" it out in mint condition. He's done this once with certain manga, even when Great Sage considers this a waste of his talents, but he's not doing this for just anybody.
  • He can even replicate enchanted items, but he needs to have consumed the materials normally required to create it (as well as the item in question, of course). He cannot improve on it with this skill however, thus not invalidating the need for weaponsmiths.
  • His Magic Sense allows him to translate messages of personal will (a.k.a. speech) into forms he can understand, so he can understand any language. With the Ultrasonic Wave ability he acquired from a Giant Bat he consumed, he can convey his thoughts into words, and in any language as well. While being an Omniglot is a common perk for all sapient deities in the Pantheon who can speak, his skill allows him to, with enough analysis from Great Sage, understand any other forms of verbal communication like Nuju's Bird rahi speech, Ti'zo's chittering, et cetera. As for non-verbal communication such as the Heptapods' writing, he has his other skills to replicate their process (again, after enough analysis with Great Sage).
  • The dimensional space within Rimuru's Predator is pretty much like a Luxury Prison Suite, with its prisoners permitted to conjure anything while incarcerated within him for their comfort. One dimension holds the Great Storm Dragon Veldora (as he and Rimuru try to figure out his Unlimited Imprisonment and how to break it) and a Fire Spirit Ifrit (after the former pulled the latter in to his own space for sparring and conversation), another holds Shizue, or rather her body, at her dying request, and another held the Orc King Geld, whose soul has since moved on.
    • As for how it works in the Pantheon, any adversary he consumes, if they're a deity, he's not allowed to assimilate their souls, which are automatically magically extracted for revival in the House of Life and Death. Otherwise, it can end up as a case-by-case basis if what he consumes might cause problems for him in the long term.
    • As for powers he absorbs from Pantheon residents, they're his to keep until all of his physical body gets destroyed, after which he'll have to take them again if he wants them. While annihilating the nucleus of his soul is the only real way to kill him for good, in the Pantheon, only the House of Life and Death can bring his body back. That said, given he has the ability to create clone bodies (which he can control manually), this already puts him at an advantage over other assimilators like him.
  • He's aware that there are others who end up in other worlds, and that there are other examples besides reincarnation (in fact, his case is rare even in his world, much less reincarnating as a slime), such as being summoned (by the local deity or by denizens), getting trapped inside a video game, activating an artifact, etc. Some even come with a way to get back home. Some don't even have any desire to go back at all even if there was a way. And there're those who came from other worlds and ended up on Earth.
    • As fellow Light Novel protagonists who become influential leaders in the worlds they now reside in, Rimuru gets along with Touya (even if he's more of a Reluctant Ruler; Rimuru was the same) and Shiroe (as the only one of equal ranking) and gets into discussions with the latter in regards to leadership skills.
  • As a monster with friendly relations with humans (though it helps that he once was one), he became quick friends with Yomi and Ceri, and has on occasion visited their temple for... diplomatic reasons.
  • In regards to Ainz Ooal Gown, who also started out as a human (and named Satoru as well, no less), he isn't sure what to think. Both of them are leaders of nations (which they've been thrust into taking) with very loyal subordinates and both have an ultimate vision of having a world of peace between all races.
    • That said, Ainz is all too willing to slaughter anyone who isn't an ally, and willing to commit all kinds of atrocities for the sake of his empire, whereas Rimuru will only retaliate hard as a last resort or when a friend is in danger (or if it's a mindless Random Encounter) and would rather settle things with his neighbors diplomatically and peacefully.
    • That said, Rimuru expresses pity since Ainz had essentially been forced and pressured into his current role, his emotions were also forcibly suppressed, and he was starting his new life from a very lofty position while Rimuru (and his eventual federation) had more humble beginnings as they worked from the ground up.
    • What's also concerning is that folks want to see who would win between the two if they ever came to blows. Right now, Rimuru is not confident that he would prevail in his current state. As for what he becomes in the future, however... let's just say that will be a completely different story.
  • In meetings with other GUAG commanders, he met some of Azeroth's heroes and forged alliances where possible. One notable encounter was with Thrall, whom he initially labeled as a hobgoblin due to his green skin and muscular physique before the former Horde Warchief corrected him that he was an orc. Rimuru was caught a bit off guard, given orcs in his world were more like Pig Men.
    • He was then also warned of the current God of Goblins as well as the other God of Orcs, and Rimuru promised not to associate with them. He also got to meet Zac, another Blob Monster who was also very friendly (despite his looks).
  • Having suffered some terrible cooking a few times before, he dreads the infamous Mystery Food X; if it could paralyze a divine being and make a ghost pass out, what horrors would his slime body be subject to if he absorbs any of it?
    • Unfortunately, he would eventually experience the results for himself when someone chickened out of taking the food as a test of courage and blindly shoved the spoon into his mouth as he passed by (the irony that Rimuru himself had done this to Gobta before with Shion's cooking wasn't lost on him). It resulted in him reverting to his slime form and going on that same standby state he had been a few times before when he Named the goblins. That state thankfully lasted only a few hours. Oh, and he Acquired Poison Immunity after that.
  • If there's something he shows utter contempt for, it's those with staunch/blind anti-monster sentiments who have the power and unwavering dedication to... carry out their mission. The attack on Tempest by the Western Saints Church and the Falmas Kingdom resulted in a hundred casualties on his end, a few of them close friends of his and even children, even though he was able to ressurrect them and grant them immortality afterward.
    • As for what he did to the invading soldiers, namely consuming them to become a True Demon Lord, some folks are divided on this matter. One side thinks he's finally crossed the line with the slaughter and soul assimilation of >10000 people, while the other can see that there really was no other option; the Falmas Kingdom and the Western Saints Church made the first move, instigated a fight that killed a hundred of Tempest's population, children included, and would've otherwise wiped the entire Federation off the map had nothing been done.
    • In regards to such hunters...
      • For those like B. B. Hood, he will not hesitate to fight and kill her if need be, especially when another's life is in danger from her.
      • But for those like Hoss Delgado, he will give a chance despite the hunter's attitude; Rimuru can understand that befriending a monster species can take a while to get used to.
  • Due to his skillset, as well as their opposing views on humans, Alex Mercer is interested in what he can acquire should he consume Rimuru, namely the Gluttony skill. That said, given the slime's achievements, this plan is at an impasse because he's aware that it's also likely that Rimuru might be able to consume him first instead, potentially granting him the Blacklight Virus and all that entails. He already lost to James Heller, and that was his own doing. He will not let this slime be the next.
    • While the former sergeant is still getting used to having allies of comparable strength, Heller and Rimuru were able to forge an alliance in stopping Mercer's plots.
    • Metallix also wants to obtain Rimuru's powers for similar reasons, but is also wary that one wrong move and all of his powers (innate and copied), not to mention the materials that compose his body, can end up being absorbed by the slime. And so far, he's not given Rimuru—who isn't confrontational by nature—good reason to hunt him down, but it might only be a matter of time.
  • Given it's also a monster-populated place like the Federation he's the leader of, Rimuru decided to visit the Anur System, though was advised to not assume a human form due to their xenophobia against humans. He hopes to change their sentiments one day.
  • Can also be found in Manners of Revival.
  • "I'm not a bad slime!"

Yhwach, God of Giving Power At a Price

  • Yhwach is a unique Quincy, born with the ability "to share power with others". When he does so, "miracles" occur such as lung disease being healed and lost limbs re-grown, as the power he shares one soul to accomplish what normally cannot be done with two souls.
    • However, his ability has a price: eventually the cultivated power will return to Yhwach, a process that usually results in the death of the person he gave power to. When he was a crippled infant, this process caused people to die within a couple years, a couple months, or even a few days in some cases. If he stops absorbing power, he'll return to his crippled state.
    • He can either impart power by touch, or by engraving a "Letter" signifying an ability onto another person's soul via them taking in his blood.
  • Yhwach is the Emperor of the Vandenreich and the "Father of the Quincy", who is determined to bring about the destruction of the Gotei 13 and the Shinigami. He attempted to replicate this success in the Pantheon by invading the House of Nature and killing Yamamoto after he killed his physical body, unaware this act was against the Pantheon's rule.
    • As a consequence of his actions after a debate in the Main House, Bittercold overthrew Yhwach for the title of Outside-Context Problem, drawing upon the vast amount of negative emotions in the Pantheon that exist in order to do so. Moreover, he was forced to watch as Yamamoto was "willed" back to existence by the Pantheon Akashic Records, and the Main House issued a warning to him against breaking the rules of the Pantheon again. Yhwach relented, realizing he could not incur the wrath of the Main House without being cast out completely, and decided to leave his feud with the Shinigami in his own realm.
  • Many in the Pantheon were shocked when Ishida Uryu was seen by Yhwach's side, leading many to question why one of Ichigo's Nakama sided with one of his enemies. None were more shocked about this than Ichigo himself. Others consider Uryu to be a clue to defeating Yhwach, as he was the only Quincy to survive Yhwach's Auswahlen of the Gemischt Quincy. Others still never believed he had truly turned, and were proven right.
    • Additionally, he has a list of five individuals from his home world he has particular interest in and as possible threats. Three of these five individuals - Ichigo, Aizen, and Zaraki - were already in the Pantheon before him. Urahara the fourth came later before his re-ascension. Currently, all four stand opposed to him, although one cannot be too sure about Aizen's position...
  • No other God in the Pantheon bears a greater grudge against him than Ichigo Kurosaki. From the decimation of the Soul Society, to the death of his mother, to manipulating Ichigo into killing the Soul King, Yhwach has given Ichigo nothing but reason for the young man to stand against him, and Yhwach has not done anything to dissuade Ichigo from this, even boasting about how everything Ichigo has done was to his eventual benefit. Despite this hostility, Yhwach sees Ichigo as his "son", even preferring to capture Ichigo initially rather than kill him, strongly emphasizing their connection via Yhwach's blood. Ichigo does not care, but Yhwach feels it is not up for question, since Ichigo cannot even say he'll "kill" him.
  • Rumours circulate that Yhwach is at his most vulnerable when he sleeps at night, as that is the time of day where he consolidates his power.
    • This has led to many attempts to break into the Wahrwelt, his newly formed castle, and assassinate him in his sleep, although the Schutzstaffel have been able to avert any attempts.
  • While it is not a publicly-known fact, Yhwach is the son of the Soul King, and his killing and absorption of the Soul King earned him the ire of many in the House of Family.
  • Although he is called "The Father of the Quincy" and it is believed the Quincy began with him, a certain Quincy folktale indicates he may only be this to the modern-day Quincy (beginning c. 1000 C.E), not the Quincy predating that time period:
    • Every few decades prior to 1000 C.E, Quincy were born who had no ability to absorb spirit particles or create spirit bows. These Quincy were culled when young as aberrations. The last time such a Quincy was born was over two hundred years before 1000 C.E. That Quincy was Yhwach. The next Quincy like that (Haschwalth Jugram) was born two hundred years later.
  • According to Askin, Yhwach's goal is to destroy the existing three worlds and create a new one, and it is for this reason he follows him: he is curious to see whatever will come into existence afterwards, and does not know when another man like him will come around who would attempt something of such a scale. This puts him at an impasse with the GUAD: although he wishes to destroy the world, his desire to create a new one clashes with their desires for complete destruction (or to recreate the world in their own image).
  • He is said to keep a special horse in a private stable, one which is mighty enough to withstand his reiatsu when it would bring others to their knees.
  • He used to be a frequent visitor to the House of Personal Appearance, mostly to have his mutton chops trimmed, since his stache has been noted to grow more voluminous within the space of even a day.
  • Aizen has rubbed it in Yhwach's face that he lost his original title and was humiliated by the Main House, but Yhwach still contents himself with the fact that he succeeded where Aizen failed.
  • His view on war has been seen as paradoxical. He claims to dislike conflict and preaches about peace, but war is one of his primary means of sustaining his life and growing in power.
  • Yhwach maintained his ties with Sinestro and Hades despite Bittercold's success, but he has yet to hear the end of it from the God of the Underworld: note 
    • Sinestro, on the other hand, has said nothing. Rather, he has observed that Yhwach seems more open in seeking alliances with other Gods of the Pantheon, something he rarely did before.
  • Yhwach has confessed he cannot see the futures of either The Human Child or Flowey, because their shared ability to RESET and their DETERMINATION conflicts with "The Almighty". For these reasons, Yhwach seeks to claim The Child's power for his own by steering him towards their Genocide persona, and carve a Schrift into their SOUL. Sans warned Yhwach he would have a bad time if he tried to do so.
    • On the other hand, Flowey is personally intrigued by Yhwach's ability to share pieces of his soul with others, and delights in attempting to find out how much power Yhwach's main soul possesses if it can draw out the latent potential of other souls with his Schrifts...by ripping it out of him and absorbing it. Yhwach once offered to impart a Schrift upon Flowey, but the flower declined, saying "he already saw what would happen if he accepted", implying a timeline where Flowey did accept, but Yhwach turned on him with the Auswahlen. This left the two in opposition with one another, but Yhwach and Flowey respectively have kept the alliance in consideration, with Flowey saying something similar to Askin: note 
  • He is not in the good graces of the Maiden in Black, as it can be said they are opposites of one another. Whereas the Maiden can manipulate souls to awaken new powers, and does so to aid others, Yhwach bestows pieces of his soul unto the Quincy to awaken their powers, only to steal back the cultivated power for himself once it suits him.
    • The Maiden has even offered to refine Ichigo's soul to a point where he returns to the level of power he once possessed in "Deicide" to act as a deterrent to Yhwach. He has made no comment on whether or not Ichigo may take the offer, because his eyes cannot see The Maiden in Black's future: note 
    • Yhwach confessed to this, despite having consumed the Soul King and having made the Soul King's power his own.

    Yuuka Kazami 
Yuuka Kazami, Goddess of Growing Stronger with Age (Flower Master of the Four Seasons, Youkai Moe~)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/th09yuukakazami.png
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: A sunflower (or any seasonal flower) wrapped around the handle of her umbrella
  • Theme Music: Gensokyo, Past and Present ~ Flower Land, Sleeping Terror and Faint Dream ~ Inanimate Dream
  • Alignment: True Neutral with shades of Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Being Strong Due of her Age, Older Than They Look, Say It with Hearts, Parasol of Pain and Elegance, Constantly Teasing Others, Green Thumb, Having a Really Lame Power, The Terror of Others
  • Domains: Flowers, Age, Youkai
  • Allies: Tsubomi Hanasaki, Kurama, Shaymin
  • Enemies: Hexxus, Looten Plunder, Vargas, Lava
  • An extremely old youkai of flowers, Yuuka in her home realm is one person you do not want to cross. And not because of her powers, as her ability to manipulate flowers is as lame as it sounds. Instead, her years of existence has made her what she is now, as she is monstrously strong both physically and magically (which includes cloning herself and the original Master Spark, Marisa's Signature Move). If her age didn't also make her less active, she could be one of the most dangerous gods in the Pantheon.
  • As part of her nature, she loves flowers and is generally nice to those who are nice to them. She like to chat with Tsubomi about flowers, though Tsubomi admits that she is bit scared of Yuuka.
    • Similarly, Shaymin is sort of a pet for Yuuka, with Shaymin visiting Yuuka's flower garden quite often.
  • There are couple of ways people see her as: A friendly old woman who is generally nice to others, or the Ultimate Sadistic Creature who enjoys nothing more than to see you suffer in the worst ways possible. However, Yuuka is actually somewhere in the middle: while she's usually inactive, she loves to tease others with stuff like genocide and usually simply roughens weaker foes up, fighting stronger enemies with certain rules to avoid unnecessary deaths.
  • Where her temple is in House of Power, her actual residence in in House of Nature in a huge sunflower field, surrounded by seasonal flowers.
  • Do not mess with her flower field. That act isn't part of the list of dumbest things to do in the Pantheon. It's in the how to kill yourself in the most painful ways in the Pantheon list. No matter how strong you are, there won't be enough left of you to be used as fertilizer when she's done with you. She is willing to take on even Asura if he destroys her flower garden. What makes her quite different from every other moron willing to do such a thing is she is simply strong enough to have a fairly good chance of not only surviving, but actually winning.
  • Some gods wonder if her flower manipulation might actually be useful, but Yuuka herself thinks her powers are simply good for the flowers and have little use otherwise.
  • There is indication she's even older and stronger than anyone has guessed so far, maybe even an Old God. When queried, she brutalized the offender with relentless danmaku barrages, and finished him off with a full Double Master Spark for having the sheer impudence of asking a lady about her age.
  • Was recently visited by Mima who reached Yuuka's sunflower field in the pantheon via a detour through some Dream Land. What started out as a pleasant time of catching up between two old friends quickly devolved into a round of Passive-Aggressive Kombat between two Blood Knights, and though it seems both parties initially intended to merely goad the other into throwing the first punch, by the time the other gods had brought out the popcorn the situation had gone pear-shaped. It's generally agreed upon that Yuuka crossed the line first when she referred to Mima as "Ms. Cunningham," but it's also agreed upon that Mima pushed the situation beyond repair when she set Yuuka's flowers on fire. Long story short, before anyone fully knew what was going on, Mima had fired her Twilight Spark and Yuuka had pulled out her own Ultimate Spark. We may never know how many lives were lost that day...

Intermediate Gods

    Brightwing 
Brightwing, Goddess of Depowering Transformations (Faerie Dragon, Fey Dragon, Sprite Darter)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brightwing_3.jpg
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: A crown she ocasionally wears.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Cute little Dragon but really dangerous in battle, The Fair Folk, Murderous little Whelp, Healing Abilities in battle, Original Generation, Faerie Dragon, Sociopathic Heroine, The Ditz
  • Domains: Support, Dragons, Magic
  • Friends:
  • Mean Friends: Murky, The defenders of the ancient
  • Meanies: Arthas Menethil, Diablo, Deathwing, Nefarian, Leoric, Abathur, Kerrigan, Acnologia, Grima, Tiamat, Ornstein And Smough
  • Special "Friends": The Killer Rabbit, Liesolette Achenbach
  • Watched carefully by: Most members of the House of Magic
  • This strange creature right here is Brightwing, a Faerie Dragon who wants to make lots and lots of friends. However, behind her saccharine and friendly demeanor hides a psychopatic monster that has no qualms with slaughtering her foes and eat her fallen opponents, but nonetheless she is a good friend. Brightwing ascended one day when she was bored, warping in and out of the Emerald Dream until she took a portal that she assumed was for the nexus but ended up in the pantheon by accident. She started making friends and all was fine until, according to Brightwing, some bad people showed up and were very mean to her friends, so she decided to polymorph them into squirrels and violently eat them. While her friends were left terrified and glad at the same time, Brightwing ended up earning her title after how she displayed her polymorph ability...in a rather brutal way.
  • She frequents the house of Friendship to find friends to play with and quickly befriended Fluttershy thanks to her kindness. Although, Fluttershy is a little terrified of the "Games" Brightwing wants to play. note 
  • This isn't the first time that Brightwing came to Pantheon. One time, she came to visit Lady Ysera and stumbled upon some people prone to Cuteness Overload. Sapphire Rhodonite grabbed the creature and gave it Marshmallow Hell and Rena Ryuguu tried to "take it home" with her. After blinking away, both of them ended up briefly polymorphed into squirrels. Ysera couldn't help but chuckle for hours at such an amusing turn of events.
  • Being a Faerie Dragon (YES, she isn't the only one), Brightwing has caught the attention of many Fairy Deities in the Pantheon, particularly The three Good fairies who are still cracking their heads at the existence of such creatures but nevertheless are on good terms.
    • She did once stumbled upon altaria and Brightwing confused her for another Fairy Dragon like her. They have become friends but altaria doesn't like playing with Brightwing much... since all her games always involve biting
    • For the record, she isn't a real dragon. Just a similar species who behave like fairies and have a great apetite for anything that moves. The only draconic origin she has is that her "mother" is Ysera.
  • Many of the Defenders of the Ancient confused her for another Faerie dragon they know called Puck but her fighting style is totally different that the Dragon they know.
  • Frequently seen visiting The Rabbit of Chaernabog. Apparently, she claims that "Bunny friend" likes to "play rough", which Brightwing finds entertaining.
  • She can warp in and out of the Emerald dream at will whenever she wants. She however, advices against travelling there as it can cause you a headache. (Not even her is immune to the occurances of that place)
  • Became friends with both Anakaris and Mamizou because their powers are similar to hers. Unfortunately, they don't usually are available for brightwing "Games" which greatly upsets her.
    • She also tried to befriend Liesolette Achenbach but she keeps ignoring her and finds the Faerie Dragon super annoying
  • One of her most important abilities is the fact that she is immune to all kind of magic. This particular fact caught the attention of Kiritsugu Emiya and tried to befriend the Fey dragon. Even tough she can be very erratic at times, she can be an important Ally in the fight against mages.
    • On the other hand, Anti-Mage invited her to "play" with some of his "friends" in his world. Brightwing is excited to meet new Friends in another world.
    • With the formation of GUAE Malum Magia, Brightwing has been offered a part in a gropu called "Magus Killers". She doesn't know what all that's about but if he goes to "Play" with the "Evil wizards" then she is fine.
  • Has been seen wearing a Crown on occasions and actually behaves like she would be an actual queen when that happens. If you don't respect her Authority, you will probably be Mauled and Eaten alive by her for your insolence.
  • In her quest to meet more friends, she heard about the friendliest of all the friends from her universe, the Inkeeper from the Hearthstone Tavern. Brightwing went to meet him and as usual, the dwarf and the faerie dragon became fast friends, Brightwing even asking him to let her join the card game but Harth couldn't find a way to include brightwing. That is until Ragnaros and Sylvanas were "retired" from the official ruleset after a rather strange incident and Brightwing was invited to fill in one of their spots. Since then, Brightwing is happy that she can meet even more friends
  • "We are friends now! Hello, friend!"
  • Also holds a spot in the House of Magic. Her pony friends keep telling her that "Friendship is Magic", so that tends to be his preferred house.

  • Every 75 years, a comet called Charlotte will arrive on Earth. Those who are young to inhale it's dust, they will receive powers when they reached puberty but will eventually lose them once it stopped. Yuu Otosaka uses his ability on taking over other students' body to become an ace student. Once he was exposed by the student council of Hoshinoumi Academy, he and his sister were forced to transfer to an another dormitory and to their school, which is an institute that protects those that have abilities and/or have the potential to awaken it. The goal of the student council is to protect other ability users from getting caught by the scientists and convince them to never use their powers ever again. However. ..
    • Escaping from the dormitories just to go to school when Ayumi was recovering from her sickness, her traumatic awakening from her powers thanks to a jealous yandere causes her death. Suffering from guilt that he never repayed her kindness, Yuu eventually suffered from isolation, until Nao saved him by recreating the Otosaka omelette rice recipe that Ayumi kept remaking. Remembering his memories from a previous timeline thanks to a song from Zhiend, he then sought out his older brother and stole his time-leap ability to save Ayumi. After completely losing his sight of constant time-leaping, Shunsuke made Hoshinoumi Academy for other ability users. Yu then steal Shunsuke's time-leap ability to save Ayumi from her death. Realizing that other organizations will use the other ability wielders worldwide, Yuu decides to travel overseas to save all of them from their fate. He succeeds in doing so, but loses all of his memories because his brain couldn't handle all of that. After returning to Japan, Nao decides to make new memories with everyone else as they all try to life a normal life.
  • One day, the group inexplicably arrived in the Pantheon after they took a group picture together. The Court of Gods appointed them for the position because of how they got their powers and how they wanted to protect other users from the scientists, which they succeeded thanks to Yuu's ability. Although they don't want it as they want to be normal and how Yuu is the only one who still has his abilities, which may caused a lot of attention, they decided to accept it for the time being. The group also has reunited with Misa, who can appear in the Pantheon without the use of the channeling abilities. Yusa hugged Misa, stating that he regretted of how she never knew her powers, how she wished to talk to her while she still have her abilities, and how she's happy that they get an actual reunion and able to hang out in the Pantheon with the rest of their friends.
  • Hearing about the existence of superheroes and supervillains, they think they're just taking a huge risk because they could endanger themselves and other civillains, but otherwise admire the superheroes using their powers for wanting to protect everyone and abhorred the supervillains for using their powers for selfish reasons. Yusa and Ayumi have bigger admiration for the superheroes because of their bubbly personalities.
  • Befriended Professor X and All Might as they are both superheroes who teach their students on how to use their powers, mostly because they couldn't find adults that they could trust and it's unlikely for them to meet adults that still have their powers. They specifically love the former for being an advocate for his own species so that they could have unity with humans.
  • As a result of their friendship with Professor X, they became enemies with Magneto as they believed that his goal of making mutants superior is not a good solution. Also William Stryker as his racism towards mutants offended them since they used to be ability users themselves except for Yuu and thay hatred lead him to cause genocide.
  • They are retorted upon hearing that Steve Rogers gained his abilities through experimentation, thinking that he gaiend them without his permission. But after hearing that he does it to protect his country from the Nazis, they couldn't blame him for that, realizing that he is really determined to do anything to protect the world even if 70 years have passed since then and remain on good terms with him because of it.
  • They are interested in hearing about the Witches because they gained their abilities when they are young but eventually lose them through age. But they couldn't relate to them on using them for a battlefield and that some of them want to keep their powers even if they will lose them as the group want to hide their powers from the rest of the world and how terrorists that used similar weapons like the Witches wanted to exploit them. They can tell that they are using it to defend the world and think that their cause is noble, which they respected.
  • They hate Amon for being a terrostic bigot who wants to take away the powers of others. Amon retorted against them, stating that Yuu took away all of the abilities and that they are as much to be blamed since they are exactly like him. They argued back stating that the scientists and terrorists wanted to use the ability users for their own gain and if Yuu didn't do what he had to do, all of the ability users would suffer from mental trauma.
  • The members of The Corpus hold enormous interest on them after hearing that the scientists in their world captured similar users like them for technological purposes. While they are disappointed to see they lose their powers, they regained hope upon hearing that Yuu still has his powers before he will eventually lose them. Because of how dangerous his ability is, they want to know how his powers will benefit for their technology. As a result, their temple has been given higher security for their safety.
  • They hate the corporation the Sumeragi Swordsmen are working for because the latter performs illegal experiments on the adepts, who also have superpowers. They don't really get why they would work for a corporation that performs these kinds of experiments when they have powers themselves. The Swordsmen don't give a damn about what their opinions are anyway.
  • Grey Heffley is envious of them being able to gain superpowers through the process of puberty even if it will disappear when they graduated in high school, specifically Yuu Otosaka, as his ability to possess someone's body made the teenager to desire that power for his own personal gain. The response he got from them are Nao kicking him in the stomach and Misa suddenly wanting her fire powers back because he pisses her off.
  • Exclusive to Yuu:
    • Yuu can take over the abilities from other users, who at first thought that he could only take over someone's body for five seconds. Originally using it for selfish purposes, he became kinder after Nao recovered him from his insanity. He became insane again because of how he constantly steal other people's powers, but his promise to Nao because of a love confession kept him sane and eventually went back to Japan, but loses all of his memories. Despite this, he became Nao's boyfriend and began a new life with the rest of his friends.
    • Being told of his abilities because of his amnesia in the Pantheon, Yuu has a hard time grasping it and doesn't know if he could use them like in the past. Thanks to the function of his abilities, he befriended Anna Marie. The superhero praises him for using his abilities for selfless reasons instead for using them selfishly in the past back when he didn't know the true function of his power. Yuu doesn't know if he could handle the praise, but he nontheless appreciates it.
    • Gets compared with Lelouch vi Britannia because they are both aloof teenagers have eye powers that could manipulate others that only works once, overprotective towards their sisters, and are prone to evil laughs. Due to becoming a blank slate thanks to his amnesia, he befriended him very quickly and Lelouch feels bad for his current condition as he suffered from amnesia like him before and only able to see with one eye and bound to a wheelchair, reminds him of Nunally, which contributed more to their friendship. While he isn't sure about the plan he made making himself an evil dictator to erase the world's hatred, the two remain on speaking terms and he can tell that Lelouch is still a good person underneath.
  • Exclusive to Nao:
    • Nao has the ability to turn herself invisible, but only to one person at a time. Suffering from a dark childhood because her mother sold her and her brother out for experimentation, causing the latter to go insane. Vowing herself to never trust anyone again, resulting in her becoming a loner, she eventually met Shunsuke, the only person she could trust and became the Student Council President of Hoshinoumi Academy. She also loves Zhiend which was introduced from her by her brother and will trash anyone who hates it and doesn't identify it as a post-rock band.
    • Befriended Ai Haibara as they are both cold lone wolfs who hated the people they grew up with and grew to hate them even more after learning what they did to their older siblings and wanting to escape afterwards. They then shed their cold persona as they bond with others, and desire to live a normal life and leave their past behind. Nao feels bad that the scientist loses her sister, since unlike her, she still has her brother, and wanted to cheer her up, something that the scientist is grateful.
    • Due to being the student council president of Hoshinoumi Academy, she was approached by it's former holder, Makoto Niijima. Makoto doesn't like how her job mostly consists of her doing missions and not doing any student council work, but considering what the academy really is, she decides to let it slide. She considers teaching her what it means to be a student council president since the rest of the world loses their powers. Since she is still the student council president of the academy, Nao accepts the request.
  • Exclusive to Takajou:
    • Takajou has super speed, but because he can't control it, he always injures himself and thus, has to wear protective gear to lessen it. He is also a big fan of Yusa Nishimori, who tends to act like a creep when it comes to her.
    • Befriended both of the Flashes in the Pantheon as they are both speedsters like him. He's somewhat envious that they could control their power unlike him but other than that, he doesn't hold any grudges against them.
    • Befriended Dragon Shiryu on how they get to get a lot of bkood loss while still being able to survive. The warrior is glad that since Takajou loses his powers, he's not as much to blood loss as he used to be but informs him to be careful.
  • Exclusive to Yusa:
    • Yusa can let other spirits to take over her body. She is a popular Idol Singer from a band called How-Low-Hello, known as Yusa Nishimori as her stage name and affectionally called Yusarin by her fans. She is the only one in the student council who doesn't know that has powers until Misa said goodbye to her through a letter.
    • Gets along with Maya Fey as they are both spirit channelers who lose their older sisters at a young age whom they still adored. Maya in her part is baffled that Yusa is not aware of her own powers but could understand why it happened because of how airheaded she is and the professional spirit medium is even fascinated at her "Spell Series" and wants to try them to see if they could work, much to Phoenix's chagrin.
    • At first, Yusa wants to befriend Misa Amane thanks to being an idol and the fact they are both bubbly, clueless teenagers who refer to themselves in third person and the other idol shares the same name as her older sister. She became wary of her after finding out she is the Second Kira and how mentally unstable she is. Yusa has stayed out of Misa Amane's sight ever since.
    • Became interested upon hearing that the Mermaid Princesses are mermaids who became Magical Girl idol singers and befriended them quickly. She thinks that their voices are beautiful and wants to know if they could appear in one of her concerts for a collab.
  • Exclusive to Misa:
    • Misa has pyrokinesis. She died through an accident and ever since then, stays in the living world while possessing her younger sister. After learning about Yuu's mission to took over the abilities from other users, she then says goodbye to her new friends as she accepts that she could never be with them again.
    • Gets along with Stella Vermillion as they are both Hot-Blooded teenage girls who use pyrokinesis if they are pissed off who really care about the people they love but show it off in a cold-hearted manner. She also gets along with Natsu Dragneel because they are both rebellious fire-wielders who love to cause trouble.
    • While not a vengeful spirit, she gets along with Hisako since she understood her revenge, since she did it once for Yusa's safety and if she was in her position, she would have done the same. Hisako doesn't mind her company and she at least has the decency to not disturb her, other than the fact she threatened to use some of her powers go innocents even if they deserved it.
  • Exclusive to Ayumi:
    • Ayumi can collapse buildings, which caused her death before Yuu created a new timeline. The only one who isn't a member of the student council and isn't involved in any of their missions. Despite her age, she acts like Yuu's guardian and constantly makes the Otosaka omelette recipe because it is her brother's favorite. Like Takajou, she loves Yusarin and when it comes to her, she gets a huge nosebleed.
    • Because her awakening of her powers is caused by a Ax-Crazy jealous Yandere which made her die before the time travel, she tried to stay away from other yanderes.
    • One of Ayumi's favorite pasttimes is stargazing using a telescope. As such, she befriended Rosalina for being an ambiguous cosmic being who dwells in space. She also loves the Lumas she lives with because they're living stars, plays with them often and listens to Rosalina's storybook with the other Lumas. Ayumi asked Rosalina if she could visit the Comet Observatory whatever she want because she wants to travel in space, who the latter gave the permission to.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bolin.png
  • Allies: Mako (his brother), Korra, Pabu and Naga, Asami Sato, Lin Beifong, Tenzin, Varrick, Aang, Katara, Sokka, Zuko, Greed
  • Annoying Fanboy of: Toph Beifong
  • Enemies: Amon (Legend of Korra), Zaheer, Azula, Sakazuki
  • Opposes: Kuvira, GUAC Yandere Squad (Yuno Gasai, Kotonoha Katsura, Sekai Saionji, Yubel, Nu-13)
  • Avoids: Norma Desmond
  • Bolin was a young Earthbender growing up in Republic City alongside his brother Mako. Champion profession bender, former mover star, deserter, Bolin fought alongside his brother and Avatar Korra in her adventures.
  • During his stay in Zaofu, the metal city, he wanted to learn metalbending like his hero Toph, with little success in his attempt, eventually coming to believe that he'll never learn it. When the Red Lotus nearly trapped him, Mako, Asami, and the wounded Tenzin in a wave of lava that consumed the Northern Air Temple, he instead acquired another skill when he bent the flow of the lava out of pure desperation.
  • He was excited to see Toph in the Pantheon, who is currently in her prime as a youth. Toph often shut herself off from Bolin just so he could stop bothering her, plus she doesn't want to constantly remind herself that he is dating her granddaughter, Opal.
  • While Toph's daughter Lin acknowledges him as an officer in her force, she is generally annoyed by his personality. The same can't be said for the chief's "suitor" in the Pantheon, the Homunculus Greed, who decided even before Bolin's ascension that he would take Bolin as well as Mako under his wing as a sort of mentor figure in life. Mako isn't all that trusting, given their past with Varrick, but is willing to run with it since Bolin seems to take to the guy and he's helped Beifong defend Republic City recently.
  • Due to running away from his "fiancée" Eska, he wanted to avoid many women that are obsessed with love.
  • Bolin is very tired of the Ship-to-Ship Combat, especially as it goes against his brother.
  • Bolin found another lavabender named Sakazuki, but found him to be crazy like Kuvira. Though, he shamefully admits that he would have worked with him like his time working in the Earth Empire, but it's an Old Shame now.
  • Though he stopped being a pro-bender for at least four years, he and his brother Mako considered introducing the sport into the Pantheon, considering that the requisite of a waterbender, firebender, and earthbender can easily work with the diversity of the Pantheon.
  • Though he never became a metalbender, sometimes he didn't give up on trying to learn. He tried to learn metalbending from Gajeel Redfox but no progress has been made. Though he is rather impressed that he met someone who could eat metal.
  • He was once a mover star when he was persuaded by Varrick to play the lead role of The Adventures of Nuktuk: Hero of the South as a propaganda tool for a potential profit. When the House of Theater tried to persuade him to play in their movies, he declined as he felt saddened that he'd mistreated his friends in his short-lived fame. Especially since there was a crazy lady in the House that tried to make him part of her "comeback".

In Duel Mode Photon Change 
  • Lesser God (Borderline Intermediate God with Orbital 7)
  • Symbol: Number 10: White Knight Illuminator, Number 62: Neo Galaxy-Eyes Prime Photon Dragon and Orbital 7. Alternatively, himself with a bubble speech that says "HARUTOOOOOO!!!"
  • Theme Music: Yugioh Zexal Sound Duel 2 - Kaito Strikes (Kaito Tenjou's Theme 2), Kaito and Haruto's Theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (formerly True Neutral)
  • Portfolio: Numbers Hunter, Protective Brothers Who Can't Stop Saying His Little Brother's Name, Badass Longcoat, Rivals, Not Speaking Much Outside of Duels, Duel Mode Photon Change, Hating on Pity, Ex-Well-Intentioned Anti Villains (And Regreting what he did), Nicer Over Time, Not Looking like He's 18 Years Old, Knights
  • Domains: Siblings, Colors, Ham, Rivalry, Light, Hunting, Atonement, Good, Knights
  • Allies:
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Eliphas, Rei Shingetsu/Vector
  • Enemies: SORA SHIUN'IN, Shang Tsung, Homura Akemi, Number 96: Black Mist
  • Uneasy Around: Madoka Kaname, Takatora Kureshima/Kamen Rider Zangetsu Shin
  • He was ascended after it was noted that his Photon Transformation, that allows him to use Numbers without being Brainwashed and Crazy by them, changed the color of his clothes from black to white.
  • Curiously, he did know about the Pantheon all along. He was friends to an extent with the same-named Kaito Kumon, or Kamen Rider Baron. He was amused to find out that Kumon was interested in fighting him and his friend Yuma, so he has decided to train the idiot so they might be able to stand a chance.
  • He seems to get along just fine with Satsuki Kiryuin. Nobody knows why but it might be because both use empowered white clothes that slowly eat their lives, or because they had similar opponents (Yuma and Ryuko) and that the Numbers Hunter and the Student Council President weren't that evil after all or it might be because both love their siblings. Or it could be all reasons. Take your pick, but they don't seem like they will tell anyone about it.
  • He's the first "Kaiba clone" to be in the Pantheon and in particular he and Kaiba don't seem to mind each other, though Kaito does consider him a bit selfish.
  • Due to being a really protective brother, he has bonded with people who share this feeling like Yu Narukami and Lelouch Lamperouge. In fact, both of them were surprised to find out that his Big Brother Instinct took a physical form. Narukami in particular wonders if Number 62: Neo Galaxy-Eyes Prime Photon Dragon is actually his Persona.
  • Was NOT happy to know that there's a very unsympathetic person as the God of Soul Absorptions, since he is still repenting for doing that during his Numbers Hunting. And it's because according to him, good intentions or not, "Soul Taking is still Soul Taking!" He also feels uneasy around Madoka Kaname for this reason.
    • He does pity her for what happened to her during the Great Upheaval and dislikes that Homura betrayed her supposedly to "protect" her. Not even he or his father would have done that to protect Haruto ever, well-intentioned extremism or not.
  • He is also a little ambivalent on Takatora Kureshima. While he feels like he's like his father Faker, he is a tad uncomfortable with the fact he didn't see that something wrong was happening to his brother Mitsuzane. Kaito did see the signs that something wrong was happening to Haruto and worked to fix that.
  • Another victim of Sora Shiun'in's bigotry within the Pantheon and he also does NOT like him because it's his Faction's fault that Shun's sister Ruri is still MIA.
  • Gets along with Veigue Lungberg, who understands the plight that the Fusion User mentioned above is putting him through. Though some gods jokingly say that there's another reason why they became friends.
    • It came to the point they asked him and Veigue to scream each other's names. Kaito doesn't know what to think of this.
  • Is chummier with that other Sora for defending Yuma, even if he confused him with Astral for some reason at first before seeing where the voice came from.
    • He also seems to like Roxas and Ventus, but at times the Photon Duelist can't help but feel that there's some kind of echo whenever he talks to them.
  • Just like his clothes, his morality has changed from dark to white. Or so Eiki Shiki has told him. Kaito still doesn't believe it himself.
  • Once called out for his little brother Haruto. Haruto Soma came instead. He doesn't seem to mind Kamen Rider Wizard, though.
  • Yusei has told him several times over that he was born in the wrong century (or dimension) since he is more like a Turbo Duelist. Kaito tried to explain to him that he doesn't actually duel with Orbital 7-In-Bike-Form but that only made him try to teach him how to do it instead. Don't worry kids, he really is old enough to use a bike.
    • It was later revealed that the real reason why Yusei was so insistent seems to be because Kaito reminds him a little of his friend Jack Atlas.

    T.J. Combo 
Tyler-Johnson Garrett, God of Those Brought Down to Badass (T.J. Combo, Mr. Fist)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ce5f28d69fe47f192d295ef2f81adf19.PNG
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His glove
  • Theme: "I'm Back! (To Rise)"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Boxing Battler, Bare-Fisted Monk, Brought Down to Badass, Combat Pragmatist, Heel–Face Turn
  • Domains: Strength, Good, Glory, Combat, Air
  • Allies: Black Orchid, Jago, Maya Fallegeros, Rocky Balboa, Zuko, Sonya Blade, Tina Armstrong, Dudley
  • Rivals: Little Mac, Jax
  • Enemies: ARIA, Fulgore, Gargos, Balrog
  • Opposes: Bandit Keith
  • Mentor to: Jacqui Briggs
  • One day in the House of Combat, Balrog started an open challenge to any non-ascended person. Whoever could defeat him will be awarded with godhood. A few stragglers took up the challenge, but they were soundly thrashed. Then one boxer rose to the challenge; a former ally of Ultratech decided to challenge him. The fight quickly turned ugly, with Balrog knocking out the ref to deploy dirty tactics. But it wasn't enough; TJ was declared the winner since TJ's fighting style was capable of fighting through Balrog's. Revived by Bison ,Balrog was forced to carry through with the ascension. In a way, the fight reminded him of fighting a younger version of himself. The fight can be seen here.
    • Dudley, who TJ used to be a follower to, was glad to find him in the Pantheon proper.
  • This was a huge win for Jago and his allies. They were in need of allies to compete against the likes of ARIA and Gargos. Someone like him with a bone to pick with both is a huge pickup for them.
  • For Ultratech, this has been an embarrassing development. He was once in their pocket, helping them test their own technology before he betrayed them for being too proud. His ascension means that he can fill in on some of their secrets. ARIA specifically ordered to create Fulgore units capable of countering his boxing style.
  • To Gargos, he is little more than yet another pitiful creature from that accursed dimension to crush under his heel.
  • There have been rumors that his real name is actually Mr. Fist. Call him that without permission and he would gladly introduce you to one of them. Hard.
  • Wiz and Boomstick theorized that while TJ Combo does well against sluggers like Balrog, he would likely lose to a quick swarmer like Little Mac. Combo decided to test this theory by paying the boxer a visit. The two fought for a few rounds and was impressed with how many strikes the Pintsized Powerhouse was able to land on him. Afterwards, the two exchanged stories on their title histories.
  • One of his newer moves is the ability to comeback from a vicious beatdown stronger than ever. Combo is fast, but he realized that he can't dodge everything. His best bet was to toughen up his body. It appears that he has taken a lot of elements from the legendary boxer Rocky Balboa. He made sure to pay his respects to the Italian Stallion and has also volunteered to train his herald, Adonis Creed, for his future matches.
  • Still likes to bring out the US flag with pride, even wearing a couple costumes with it. With that said, he is disgusted with Bandit Keith giving US citizens a bad name. The duel master was unimpressed and pointed out Combo's dubious past. He dared to call the boxer even more of a sore loser for forfeiting the belt. Keith got hit with a cyclone punch for his trouble.
  • When he found out all the good deeds Zuko has done to help those who turned away from evil, he decided to pay him a visit. Zuko hesitated at the gratitude, stating he preferred to continue to do his works on his own. With that said, he is glad that his deeds have been paying off with more people like him arriving at the Pantheon. He also agreed to look over if he can help Combo get some revenge on a certain fire emitting mercenary.
  • It is clear that he also has a lot in common with Kombatant Jax. The two have been bitter rivals over the years, but that changed when he left Ultratech. By the time he ascended, the two have become buddies. Jax even suggested that he meets his daughter Jacqui Briggs. Combo objected at first, citing his lack of military experience. But Jax had another reason in mind. Like Combo before her, she currently relies on her gauntlets to increase her strength. Jac figured that someone like him could teach her not to rely too much on her weapons. When he confronted the Military Brat, Jacqui confessed to feeling inadequately trained compared to her teammates. Combo reassured her that it hasn't stopped other Badass Normals from kicking ass. He agreed to train with her without her gauntlets to improve her skills.
    • Teammate Sonya Blade has also taken a liking to the new and improved T.J. Both are from the state of Texas and like to share BBQ as well as talk about sports. Except for basketball as the two root for opposing teams.
  • Tina Armstrong was glad to see Combo mix up his boxing with MMA combat. That way, she can put her wrestling skills to good use to test him.
  • "You think you got what it takes to beat the champ? Come on!"

    Weiß 
Weiss, Goddess of Breakable Power-Ups (Weiß, The Sword-Summoning White Valkyrie, Sophie, White, Weisy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara04_a.png
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Two of her own swords crossed over Gottfried's sword
  • Theme Song: White Valkyrja
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Portfolio: Red Eyes, Katars, Insta-Creating Dozens of Blades, Rei Ayanami Expy, Sugar-and-Ice Personality, Lack of Social Skills, Wanting For a Simple Life, Norse Mythology and Nazi Naming, Child Soldier, Artificial Arcana Maiden
  • Domains: Appearance, Heroes, Swords
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Nu-13
  • Odd Friendship with: Hikage
  • Weiss is a "Valkyrie", a girl implanted with celestial energy and given an artificial Arcana by the Drexler Institute. She was raised as a soldier from young age until she was saved by ´Celestial Union. She currently works for them to solve any celestial incidents what may occur while also trying to adapt into living like a normal person.
  • Scharlachrot was really happy and grateful about her ascension, as now they can be together again. Though when Weiss heard what was going on with Scharlachrot before she ascended, she felt really guilty due of her getting brainwashed again. Other gods ensured it wasn't her fault, and if she feels bad about it, she should make sure nothing like that would happen once again.
  • Her main form of combat is being able to summon blades with her gauntlets. One of her most central applications is being able to summon small blades which she uses as katars, thus increasing the range of her basic attacks. The thing is that as soon as she gets hit by anything, she looses those blades, thus requiring her to resummon the blades. Other stuff she can do is summon larger blades what appear next to her and giant swords which she rides on. She can even summon multiple blades like placing them to the ground and then sending them off, stabbing opponent with daggers and, well, this.
  • Even though she used to be a follower of Nu-13, she frankly dislikes her a lot. Even though she was born as a Living Weapon, she cannot but be reminded how Scarlachrot was during the Ragnarok Incident, and she doubts that there is no cure to her.
  • Of all things what can be considered a signature item to her, it is her bowtie, as even as a shadowly blob, she still wears it. Eleventh Doctor approves.
  • There is one particular problem what Weiss has: her absolute lack of any understanding of normal social interaction. Due of her being raised as a soldier for most of her life, she normally acts as a soldier as well. We are talking about a girl who's idea of a "date" is going to a dark alleyway for combat training, asks her foes how to say things in casual way and stops her conversation when she feels like she said something right. While she is trying to adapt to the normal society, she has long way to go.
  • She has heard rumours that some people used to say she is like Jin Kisaragi due of her "Ride the Swordning" going with Jin's "Ice Car" and something about their themes sounding similar. She herself is glad that Jin managed to escape the NOL when he could, not really knowing much of the background behind it.
  • Not to be confused with another Weiss. Mistakes like that have been made before (just ask Scharlachrot).
  • Raiden really feels disgusted by what she had to gone through due of Drexler Institute, and she appreciates his concerns.
  • Her Arcana, Gottfried, was designed after the Norse God Tyr. After hearing about this, Tyr got interested on her, and the two of them are in a sense close to each other. And due of that, she also got close to Freya as while she doesn't appreciate the word Valkyrie being associated with such a project, she cannot but feel concern of the soldiers created in the program.

    Yang Xiao Long 
Yang Xiao Long, Goddess of Damage Based Power-ups (Blondie, Bimbo, The Adventurous Huntress, Top Heavy, Firecracker, Sunny Little Dragon, Embodiment of Strength)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_0308.jpeg
  • Lesser Goddess (jumps to Intermediate Goddess when thoroughly pissed off/takes enough damage)
  • Symbol: Her symbol, a burning yellow heart
  • Theme Song: I Burn, its club remix, Gold, Armed and Ready
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, with some moments of True Neutral
  • Portfolio: being the awesome big sis to Ruby, relishing fights, opposites of siblings, using fancy leg movements in fights, weapons being powerful gauntlets that also function like shotguns, Hair-Trigger Temper, buxom strength, based off of Goldilocks, becoming more powerful the more damage she receives, getting her arm cut off, being utterly broken and depressed, getting a bit better, being a looker on a bike
  • Domains: Hair, Combat, Rage, Sisterhood
  • Herald: Zwei, her Pembroke welsh corgi (shared with Ruby)
  • Allies:
  • Mentor: Ryuga Banjou/Kamen Rider Cross-Z
  • Enemies: Neopolitan, Roman Torchwick, Cinder Fall, the Psycho Rangers (particularly Psycho Yellow), Nui Harime, Frieza, Mother Gothel, Nine the Phantom, Yuuki Terumi(Especially as his true self, Susanoo), Adam Taurus.
  • Opposes: Raven Branwen (Her Mother).
  • Friendly Rivalry: Natsu Dragneel, Hibiki Tachibana, Leone, Jetstream Sam, Tifa Lockheart
  • Is Deathly Afraid of: The Meta
  • Good Counterpart to: Adam Taurus. Both are potential love interests for Blake Belladonna, and their respective semblances both store up energy to be used for attacks. However, Yang is much more morally upstanding than he is, and instead gives her all to protect Blake.
  • Ascended by doing a three-point-landing in the House of Personal Appearance, right around the time her sister landed. Glad to see Ruby, she began building her temple…by subsequently blasting it with her weapon.
  • Once the Goddess of Nobody Touches the Hair, she was given Critical Status Buff because of her Semblance having the ability to take pain and anger and increasing her strength.
  • Saw Winnie the Pooh and cooed in delight. Pooh, not realizing her Berserk Button about her hair, covered it with some honey he was eating. However, Yang didn't get mad as most expected and just laughed it off.
  • Admires Josuke Higashikata, who she became aware of after someone compared the two through their hair triggers. More specifically, she admires Crazy Diamond, who punches with power and speed that she would like to match one day.
    • It seems hanging with the JoJo affected her a bit as she can be heard going oraoraora when she starts throwing punches. Though, only when she talks in Japanese.
  • Gets along very well with Bullet, due to their similar fighting styles and appearances. They often hang out whenever they have time, though Yang wishes Bullet could relax a little more.
  • Has been seen talking to Captain Falcon, asking about his Falcon Punch, interested in coming up with her own variation that can also shoot things. Their boisterous personalities helped them get along well, at least when Captain Falcon is in his Smash Bros. state of mind.
  • Good friends with Filia and her Parasite Samson, due to the fact that not only does their battle style consist of using Samson in a variety of forms, but because Filia has never had to worry about her hair again, something she envies. Filia also reminds Yang of Ruby a bit.
  • Even though Yang enjoys puns here and there, it's not to the extreme that most people think. At least compare to someone like Sans. Though, when she does pun it up, anybody in ear shot would respond with a Goddammit, Yang.
    • Though King Kai very much enjoys her puns, and has even offered her to train on his planet. She has not yet given him a reply.
    • Now that she's been hooked up to have both of her arms while in the Pantheon, she's taken him up on his offer. It's safe to say if Adam ever ascends, Yang will be getting her revenge. And once he actually entered the pantheon, Yang became downright livid, and has promised to bash his horns into his skull, just for starters.
  • The House of Family has heard her secondary theme, "Gold", and collectively felt a wave of warm and fuzziness, upon learning it was devoted to Yang's feelings for her sister.
    • Similarly, her tertiary theme, "All Our Days", garnered many a teary eye from siblings that care for their juniors.
    • However, her primary theme "I Burn" has earned her the ire of Frieza, who now believes her to actually be a Saiyan.
  • Is petrified of the Meta, due to his brutality and kill count. He is one of the few people she would rather not face head on.
  • Still, she likes most of the Red vs. Blue deities, in particular Tex, who she has invited for a brawl, and Church/Epsilon, who remind Yang of her father. The only one who has quickly left a bad impression on her is Tucker, who as soon as he put his eyes on Yang felt the need to hit on her, leading to a punch in the face. Once Simmons ascended, Yang visited his temple and while the man froze in fear, she felt strange hearing his herald Katie Jensen speak.
  • Has gone into a period of mourning, along with the rest of people of her world. When asked, she would only say, with a sad smile, "A great man's gone." She was ecstatic to see he has since ascended.
  • Has found out she sounds like several other deities in Japanese like Kallen Kozuki, Makoto Kino, Mai Shiranui, Ibuki Mioda, Ryuko Matoi and Charlotte E. Yeager. She gets along rather well with them. It's not unheard of to see all seven hanging out together.
    • Hanging out with Ryuko, Yang encountered Nui Harime who she doesn't like. Might be because she is reminded of Neo.
  • Just like her sister, she's formed a friendship with another similar Kamen Rider, Shouichi. Tsugami for their similar preference in colors and combat preference, a love for horrible wordplay, similar cheery personalities and a desire to search for their pasts. They spend most of their time together sparring, trading puns and having Yang sample his amazing (if strange) cooking. Shouichi wishes Yang good luck in searching for her mother, and Yang congratulates Shouichi on coming to terms with his past.
  • Realized that she has a bit of a problem with dealing with fighters known for their kicks. To remedy that, she started training with the Mistress of Kicking herself, Chun-Li.
  • Got into a Friendly Rivalry with Natsu Dragneel as both loves to fight and they get stronger when anger enough. Flames included. She also loves to fight against Hibiki Tachibana who just as much of a Blood Knight as her. All three tend to leave The Combat Dojo with plenty of scorch marks and rubble.
    • She also got to know Night Raider's Leone who many people said reminds or looks like Yang. Some have even go far as to say Leone is the daughter of her and Blake Belladonna. When Yang hears this, she could only respond with a nervous laugh.
    • Her Semblance has earned the attention of Vegeta, who has compared her semblance to the Saiyan trait of getting stronger during a fight. This, along with her enjoyment of fighting, has caused a few deities to theorize she may have Saiyan blood. Though Yang herself sees it as a joke, Frieza is not so keen on laughing along, and has starting referring to Yang as "Monkey Girl."
    • Surprisingly gets along with Ragna the Bloodedge. She noticed how much he reminds her of Ruby and Qrow, while Ragna was reminded of Makoto and Bullet. They noticed how much in common they had, being overprotective siblings, being fairly Hot-Blooded fighters and losing an arm. Yang constantly tries to get Ragna to open up, while Ragna just brushes it off. She does appreciate how he (along with Yu Narukami and Hyde) act as Ruby's own older brothers and likes the extra help when it comes around.
  • When the Anthropomorphic Battleship Iowa ascended, many have confused her for Yang. Even though it's easy to tell them apart because of Iowa's star eyes. Yang had a bit of fun with it by dressing up as Iowa to confuse people.
  • While Yang and Tifa once had a bar brawl that ended with Yang performing a Neck Snap, the FFVII heroine doesn't harbor much of a grudge against Yang.
  • Austin Powers tried to hit on Yang and didn't go well, but his quips afterwards made her laugh. They discovered a shared love for terrible puns and sometimes get together to indulge into showoffs that are easy to find, as everyone around is indulging into a Collective Groan.
  • During the Battle of Beacon, Yang lost her right arm from Adam Taurus slicing it off in one strike. Due to similar combat styles, sword-colors and weapon system, Yang was originally very leery of Samuel "Jetstream Sam" Rodrigues. However, after speaking with him Yang realized that, while Sam is a bit of a fighter, he's not anywhere near as psychotic as Adam. The fact that Sam and Yang have similar personalities, and issues (from a similar reason, and same side, no less) also smoothed things out between them. Sam is also eagerly waiting for Yang to get back up to her previous combat potential.
    • In light of how Adam easily took out Yang, Tifa and her friends worry if he ever ascends. How dangerous would he be to AVALANCHE? And how worthy of an opponent would he be against Sephiroth? Unfortunately, their worst fears have been realized. Though Yang's rematch with Adam proved she's stronger and less callous and won't be wrecked like that again.
  • Like many of the others from Beacon, Yang faced tragedy when it was attacked by the White Fang and the creatures of Grimm. For her, she lost her arm by Adam Taurus while trying to save Blake. Not only that, she felt abandoned by Blake who left without saying a word. She is now currently in a state of depression. In short, she couldn't HANDle the situation.
    • Due to this, she screamed and retreated out of sheer horror when she learned that the monster had himself ascended to the pantheon, and in the same section as Blake Belladonna, no less. Needless to say, she and her allies are trying to purge him from his seat as quickly as possible.
    • Her current situation has garnered the sympathy of both Korra and Mami Tomoe. The former knowing all too well in being in a state of depression when she was poisoned by mercury. Ryuko and Hibiki have also offered their support of Yang since Ryuko lost her way a couple of times and Hibiki herself as lost an arm.
    • There are some in the House of Technology who have offered to give Yang a replacement robotic arm, all in different designs. So far, Yang hasn't responded to the offers. Besides, she's already got one from Atlas - no word on whether it has a vibration function, though.
    • Her injury has also led to a friendship with Juzo Sakakura, with whom she also shares a similar temperament and fighting style, even though the circumstances of their injuries are inverted (Yang lost her arm trying to save her friends, Juzo sacrificed his arm to save his friends).
  • Due to issues with her own mother Raven Branwen, Yang has a sore spot for mothers who put their own selfish needs before their own children. She especially hates Mother Gothel for kidnapping Rapunzel as a baby, and keeping her locked up in a tower just because her hair reverse aging. One encounter between the two had Gothel cut Yang's hair out of spite, leading to Team RWBY fighting Gothel's Superpowered Evil Side, the Grim Guardianess.
    • Raven's eventual ascension was not very pleasant for Yang, who
  • Recently, she has been joined in ascension by her Cool Uncle, Qrow Branwen. At first, she was utterly elated to see her uncle again. Of course, that came to pass when his mere presence caused the building they were in to catch on fire. Nonetheless, she still thoroughly loves her uncle.
  • Due to the Fall of Beacon Academy, Team RWBY has been left Incompletely Trained in general, which is not a very good spot be in considering how dangerous their upcoming battles will be. However, a very convenient opportunity for training for this team has been opened up thanks to the arrival of the heroic Kamen Riders of Build, who themselves are a tightly-knitted four-man team and have overcome all adversaries and horrors to create a whole new world. With their success leading to their ascension into the Pantheon, each member of RWBY has been taken under the wing of one of the four Kamen Riders to help each girl evolve and grow as an huntress and, as an whole, a team to be prepared for what's to come. In her case, Ryuga Banjou/Kamen Rider Cross-Z is Yang's personal trainer.
    Yang: From now on, with love and peace stirring in my heart, there's no way I can lose!
    Yang: Oh come on now teach! No need to get so fired up about it!

  • Probably the most unthreatening god in the entire Pantheon, but be wary of mocking it for when it evolves, it will get its revenge.
    "I swear to Arceus, when I evolve, I will kill all of you."
    Book of Magikarp, 1:1
  • It has been known to evolve into its next form Gyarados while in the Pantheon. However, it never stays in that form for more than a day, at which point it will turn back to its Magikarp form again at level 1.
    • This also means that Gyarados only ever knows three moves as he typically doesn't level up quick enough to get another move before he devolves back into Magikarp. The only way to get past this limitation is to have a bunch of Rare Candies on hand, but given his time limit in his Gyarados form, it isn't really worth it.
  • Don't think you're too good enough not to train it. It will follow you to the ends of the Earth for that slight.
  • Despite its massive power boost as a Gyarados, it can easily be defeated by electricity, which considering the number of Gods who wield such powers can easily put a stop to any rampages it may have before they start. Naturally, it has developed a hatred for them when it turns into its Gyarados form.
  • Naturally, as a creature of the sea, Magikarp gets along well with Aquaman, in both of its forms. Thus, the easiest way to quell its rage as a Gyarados is to simply get Aquaman to talk it down before things get out of hand. The same goes for Misty who is a trainer of Water-type Pokémon and has a Gyarados.
    • However, since Lysandre has a Gyarados and Gyaradosite, he and Gyarados should not under any circumstances be in the same area, lest even more carnage would happen. This goes double since Gyaradosite significantly reduces Gyarados' weakness to electricity.
