Mithra, Goddess of Protagonist-Centered Morality (First Heaven, The Truth, Shinga, The Original Hadou God, Goddess of Dualism, Goddess of Nigenron)

  • Enemies: Hajun, The Protectors of the Plot Continuum, The Truth, Lucifer, Cosmos, The White, Gowasu, Asura
  • Opposed by: Those who believe morality isn't black and white, most of the Grand United Alliance of Good, George R.R. Martin
  • Confused for: Rex, Pyra, and Mythra.
  • The Masadaverse has a supreme deity, a Hadou God, who imposes their Law upon the multiverse from The Throne. The first to sit upon the throne was Mithra, or Shinga by her divine name. Her Law, Nigenron, determined what was good, and what was evil. This led to a chaotic multiverse, where good and evil beings fought each other in a Forever War. It took the man later known as Muzan to end it, someone who was part of the "Good" faction who went on to kill everyone and became the second Hadou God.
  • By the nature of her Law, everything she thinks is good and everything she thinks is bad is as much a law of the cosmos as things like gravity and entropy. In other words, morality revolves around her. While not a literal Mary Sue, the Protectors of the Plot Continuum consider her to be just like one due to how she twists the multiverse to agree with her values.
  • What is "good" and what is "evil" is really more of a glorified Evil vs. Evil in her multiverse. Good people were brutish individuals driven by hatred and resentment, destroying both the enemy and themselves. Evil people were beautiful and prideful individuals who carried out atrocities without a hint of maliciousness in them. Cosmos considers her opinion on what good is to be abhorrent, Mithra believes she has the right to determine what the GUAG and GUAE are.
  • Considered to be a darker archetype of Eiki Shiki. Both exist to determine what is good, what is evil and possess no middle ground on the matter. Their differing opinions on what that entails has led to a rivalry between the two of them, which Mithra boasts she dominates as Eiki Shiki governs Hell, while she governed the multiverse in her time. Of course, her rival is wont to remind her of the "in her time" part.
  • Zamasu was absolutely infuriated at Mithra and her people for creating The Throne, declaring that her status as a former mortal and that mortals created The Throne is the source of all problems within the Masadaverse, and decrying her failure as a deity. Mithra was quick to point out the hypocrisy of his contempt as they are very similar; convinced they're in the right, they reshaped their multiverses to enact what is good. Surprisingly Zamasu actually conceded she had a point, however, feels that while he agrees there are no moral grey areas, the fact she allowed evil to exist at all is a grievous sin.
  • The endless conflict from enforcing her moral dualism is a dark parallel to the seemingly endless war between Cosmos and Melkor. Cosmos dreads it but has learned to accept moral ambiguity. Melkor simply found it tiresome, since he wants to be the winner in the battle of good against evil. He does think moral absolutism might be an easier means of determining a winner compared to the much more diverse conflict in the pantheon, but otherwise doesn't care for her.
  • Lucifer was absolutely opposed to her views on good and evil, as they denied humanity the chance to choose for themselves what is right and what is wrong. YHVH had the opposite opinion; He liked the idea, in part because He could force Himself as the "good", in part He has a very black and white view on the world(though different standards to Mithra), and in part because He has exploited the dichotomy on high much like Mithra. Of course, their respective egos and differing opinions on what is "good" and what is "evil" prevent them from ever allying, which is probably for the best.
  • While rivals, Mithra and YHVH share enough in common that they can have civil conversations. Mithra has a fondness for the Seven Heavenly Virtues, out of the fact that they paradoxically poorly fit the virtue and morality they embody yet do so. Otherwise, Mithra's self-centeredness and conviction on right and wrong makes finding allies difficult. Though she does fancy some of her male rivals. She considers mostly anything with a Y chromosome to be fair game.
  • Her endless conflict of "good" and "evil" was met by derision by those who believe in moral relativism, and George R.R. Martin laughed at the mess that was her multiverse. As one to prefer moral ambiguity in his writing, he considers her reality to essentially be poor writing in terms of Black-and-White Morality and the kind of thing he likes to deconstruct. Gowasu feels she is a lesson in failure when it comes to the importance and balance of good and evil.
  • Since her Law caused a Forever War, Apollyon was pretty interested in it. The White were revolted and used her as justification for their belief that even the GUAG's attempt to better the Pantheon brings suffering in an eternal conflict. They wish to end it and feel her successor Muzan's problems are proof that permanent annihilation is the only option.
  • The Truth was disgusted her using "The Truth" as part of one of her titles, and her desire to forcibly determine what is right, wrong and how that might relate to karma. It finds it a twisted version of how The Truth determines what is good and bad.
  • Considers Asura to be a Lighter and Softer version of Muzan, at least initially; they were both sick of the current divine status quo and eventually overcame the supreme being in charge. Of course, Asura isn't a genocidal maniac and has no desire to be worshipped or prayed to. He also considers her little better than Chakravartin, who also abused the Omniscient Morality License. Mithra finds him to be hot and was intrigued by how he also utilized the word "Mithra", specifically his Mithra of Maitreya who becomes Mithra-Buddha.

  • The Seven Heavenly Virtues have the reputation of being the most unusual and unconventional group of Angels to be ever introduced in the Pantheon, because a) they consistently fail to live up to the Virtues they represent and b) they all wear skimpy clothes. When they entered the Pantheon, they all engaged in crazy antics, trying to train their chosen candidates to be the Messiah. Most people ignored them, given that such events were commonplace in the Pantheon, although some of the more perverted deities couldn't help but stare lewdly at the Virtues. After all was said and done, the Virtues were accepted without further trouble.
  • Upon their arrival, they discovered several alternate versions of the God they serve were already present in the Pantheon, such as Eru Ilúvatar, Aslan and the Love that Moves the Stars, and pledged their loyalty to them within the blink of an eye. They were also invited to the House of Angels for their efforts in finding the Messiah and trying to live among humans. They were even surprised to find there was already a version of Michael in the Pantheon. The veteran Michael agreed to become a mentor to the Virtues, especially to the female Michael, who still struggled between law and Good. Both Tyrael and Manwë have agreed to teach the Virtues in the ways of the Pantheon as well.
    • They agree with Michael's ideal that Virtue cannot exist without Free Will, which is why they stand in opposition to YHVH and his lackeys, especially his most loyal Angel Metatron, who creeps the female Metatron out to no end. Michael, more than the other Virtues, hates Metatron for showing her an alternate reality where she accepted her God's order to destroy mankind. After that event, she has taken steps to ensure she does not stray from the path of Virtue like her Alternate Self. Despite their enmity with YHVH's forces, however, they think twice before working alongside Lucifer; while he might champion free will, they are always quick to question the morality of his actions.
  • Anyone who follows the path of Virtue will become an immediate ally to the Virtues, including legendary superheroes like Superman, Captain America and Spider-Man. The Angels sometimes entertain the idea of training them to be Messiah Candidates, but ultimately dissuade the notions, as they already have their hands full with their current Candidates. At the very least, they offered their support against the High Councilor; especially Michael, who knows what it's like to have an Evil Twin.
  • Melkor is high on their hit list, alongside YHVH, and the Virtues always take the opportunity to berate him for betraying his family for his own pride and ambition. Sauron of Mordor is also one of the Virtues' greatest enemies, as his love for order and perfection caused him to stray from the path of Virtue and pervert everything the Ainur were supposed to uphold. The Virtues are also horrified to learn of Aku, a Japanese demon who successfully conqured the world, and fear something like that would happen if they failed in their quest to find a suitable Messiah. They are further dismayed to learn of people like Emperor Palpatine and Isaac Westcott, who are entirely human despite their impressive powers.
  • They have become very attached to Shido Itsuka and Lux Arcadia after learning of their benevolent and righteous attitudes. They are also aware of Shido's origins as a Spirit-human hybrid. The Virtues always invite Shido, Lux and their harems for huge parties in their temple.
  • Being literal Angels of the Lord, the Virtues do their best to cheer up Timmy Turner and protect him from abusive parental figures and any kinds of evil adults in the Pantheon. The Virtues were absolutely horrified to learn Jorgan Von Strangle once gave him a vision of an alternate reality where everyone would be better off if he wasn't born. Jorgan attempted to defend himself, saying he wanted to teach Timmy about doing the right thing without expecting a reward, but the Virtues would have none of it, pointing out the near-sadistic glee he took at Timmy's visible suffering. Uriel capped off the Virtues' disgust with one final statement:
    "We could be assholes like you, but we don't like hurting other people's feelings."
  • Another child under their protection is Charlie Brown. Despite the constant misery the universe piles on him, he never gives up trying to do the right thing, something the Virtues can relate to.
  • Sam and Dean Winchester dimiss the Virtues' efforts to help them in the demon-hunting duties, considering no better than the angels than live in their universe. For their part, the Virtues have long given up on helping the Winchesters, dismissing them as self-righteous jerks who care about their own personal vendetta over the world they've sworn to protect. They aren't too fond of James Bond, either. Much like M, the Angels think he is a "sexist, misogynist dinosaur" who is willing to sleep with women to get what he needs. Bond, not a stranger to petty insults, ignores them. Hilariously, some deities believe the Virtues, Michael and Uriel especially, might not be entirely immune to 007's boyish charms. The Virtues embarrassingly denied that notion, but Sariel is willing to give Bond a chance to prove his worth. They don't look forward to working with the Spectre, who takes his job very seriously and is an even bigger Hero with an F in Good than they are. Michael at least tries to give him the benefit of the doubt because she knows how hard it is to keep one's faith in a world constantly threatened by sin and evil.
  • Don't exactly see eye to eye with the Friends crew because their tropes are almost similar. They do, however, respect each other and the Virtues feel bad that Joey's spin-off didn't actually work out. Also, they work together to undermine the Seinfeld crew whenever they get the chance. The Virtues think that Jerry and his friends are miserable and lousy excuses for human beings and do not deserve salvation, but they do agree that the punishment they suffer at the end of their story falls flat because a) they didn't learn anything from the experience and b) they were indirectly punished by people even worse than they are.
  • Exclusive to Michael:
    • An accomplished swordswoman, Michael is always willing to accept challenges from worthy sword-wielding heroes, like Link and Samurai Jack. She is impressed by Link's courage and tenacity in the face of overwhelming odds and praises Jack for succeeding in his quest to destroy Aku, even if he had to overcome a period of depression. As someone who struggles with her faith, Michael sympathizes with Optimus Prime when she heard of his own crisis of faith.
    • When she has free time, Michael likes to go to the House of Food and eat lots of omelettes. There, she came across Tohka Yatogami and Celestia Ralgris and quickly befriended them after hearing of their stories. Michael praises the two girls for their sword skills and loyalty to Shido and Lux, considering them true embodiments of faith.
  • Exclusive to Uriel:
    • Despite her position as the Angel of Patience, Uriel actually has a short temper according to and doesn’t have the patience to pause and reconsider her actions due to how stubbornly she sticks to them, even if they inconvenience her or others. To solve this, the Grand United Alliance of Good advised her to visit Princess Zelda. Despite some initial difficulty, the Angel of Patience and the Princess of Hyrule ultimately became friends. Uriel came to admire Zelda's wisdom and devotion to Link and regularly asks her for advice on how to improve her relationship with her Candidate.
    • An ability Uriel has but almost never uses is the power of fire. Uriel's time in the Pantheon has allowed her to further develop this skill and her time in the GUAG earned her the friendship of space pilot Mirage Farina Jenius. Feeling a strange kinship, Uriel and Mirage promised to work together in the battlefield. Uriel feels a bit sorry that Mirage lost in her show's Love Triangle, but Mirage assures her she has moved on.
    • As an intelligence officer, Uriel is pretty good at bureaucracy. While she won't say no to a mission that specifically requires her presence, she feels more comfortable in the GUAG's headquarters, handling all the paperwork. "The GUAG will stand or fall on the strength of its internal administration", she says.
  • Exclusive to Raphael:
    • She might not look like it, but Raphael is actually the most socially adept of the Virtues. Despite her fondness for her Candidate, she knew that training him as a Messiah would likely get in the way of his dream of becoming a master pastry chef, so she erased his memories of her. For that, she earned Tenri Ayukawa's respect. She also became friends with Mayuri, who made a sacrifice of the literal kind to save Shido Itsuka.
    • Amazed to find deities within the Pantheon that share her voice and dedicates a lot of her free time to have fun alongside them. Raphael and Fuuka get along swimmingly, while Azura thinks Raphael could learn to take things a bit more seriously. Lisha cannot help but feel jealous towards Raphael, for, well
  • Exclusive to Sandalphon
    • Sandalphon is interested in the fields of science, so it's no surprise that she spends more time in the House of Science than in her temple. While she can develop small devices like hand-held computers, phones and even small grenades, larger devices are more complicated and most of the time they end up exploding. Seeing her enthusiasm and dedication for science, the Philanthropists of Benevolent Science have accepted her as their protegé.
    • Being the twin sister of Metatron, Sandalphon constantly worries for her sister's psychological state and has already given a warning to House of Health and Diseases to see if there is something they can do to help her.
  • Exclusive to Metatron
    • Being the Angel of Charity, it is no surprise that Metatron is dedicated to the arts of medicine. Unfortunately, she has no firsthand knowledge of the human world and and often gets tricked because she naively trusts anyone. J.D. and Turk were quick to befriend Metatron and try to make sure she doesn't fall in with the wrong crowd. Easier said than done, however, as the Sacred Heart doctors are not paragons of fair judgment either, leading to a lot of misadventures for the three.
    • Her work amongst the Pantheon gods led Metatron to meet other famous doctors like Gregory House and Leonard McCoy. Metatron does not enjoy her time with House; although she respects his skills as a doctor, she is not fond of his bad attitude and smug self-righteousness. On the other hand, Dr. House doesn't like Metatron either, thinking her to be a naive goody-two-shoes. She prefers to spend more time with McCoy, who despite his own grumpiness, does have the qualities Metatron desires in a mentor.
    • Under normal circumstances, Metatron is gentle and benevolent, but she harbors a split personality that enjoys causing pain to other people. This split personality usually manifests when Metatron is holding a syringe and many evil-aligned gods, such as Nurse Ratched, Sofia Lamb, Carnage and the Joker seek to corrupt Metatron by exposing her split personality to more varied forms of depravity. The other Virtues make sure to keep them away from Metatron as much as possible.
    • The sadistic Metatron gets along swimmingly with the Medic, who enjoys getting organs and causing bloodshed. The nice Metatron, on the other hand, would rather stay away from him, especially when she heard that he made a deal with The Devil in exchange for his soul. Then, when his contract was about to expire, he then tricked The Devil signing an another contract, this time, in exchange for his teammates' souls just so The Medic could become immortal all by himself. Doing that was extremely risky and could have easily backfired.
  • Exclusive to Gabriel
    • Obsessed with chastity, Gabriel does not tolerate what she believes are acts of perversion or sexual decadences. She spends most of her time yelling at the more lustful deities to stop their wrongful acts. Most of these deities, like James Bond and the Highschool DxD deities, ignore her, thinking her to be just a nuisance. Some of the more reasonable deities, like Kaito Kirishima, Ichika Takatsuki, Ichiro Sato and Ryoko Sato, at least listen to their advice and Gabriel does give them the benefit of the doubt. They're just teenagers, they won't be doing sexual acts anytime soon.
    • Gabriel completely approves of Ash Ketchum and Ichika Orimura, accepting them as embodiments of chastity. She does, however, question their ability to garner multiple love ineterests despite their lack of experience with love.
    • Getting tired of her constant preaching about chastity, the deities of the House of Tainted Love decided to kidnap her. The Virtues, and almost everyone in the House of Love, quickly saved her.
  • Exclusive to Sariel:
    • As the oldest of the Angels, Sariel tries to act like a mother to the group. "Tries" being the keyword here. Sariel is actually obsessed with the pleasures of the flesh and has earned the attractions of many male deities over the Pantheon. She has enjoyed quite a few nights of passion with James T. Kirk and has even taken Bond on his offer to prove his boyish charms, to the embarrassment of Michael and Gabriel. One particular god called Lavernius Tucker attempted to woo Sariel, an act that his fellow Red vs. Blue deities believed was doomed to fail. Fortunately, Sariel saw right through Tucker's charade and gave him what he wanted. Tucker's screams were the stuff of legends.
    "Woo-hoo! I banged an angel! Bow-Chicka-Bow-Wow!"
    • Tucker's friends, especially Epsilon and Washington were shocked beyond words. Sariel's friends, however, were not.
    • Good friends with Power Girl and the Dark Magician Girl for their pride and lack of shame in their physical beauties. She did gain some unwanted attention in the form of Aphrodite, who thought the Angel of Kindness would try to steal her position as the Pantheon's Most Beautiful Goddess. Sariel has made it clear that she has no interest in stealing Aphrodite's title, but she does joke about it, if only to get on Aphrodite's nerves.
    • Her sneezes are so powerful they can destroy city blocks. Many gods wondered if those sneezes have any practical application against the forces of evil, but Batman came up with an idea. He told the Virtues to place Sariel deep within one of the Grand United Alliance of Evil's production facilities and rubbed her nose with a feather. One sneeze later and the GUAE's supply chain was crippled big time. Melkor's screams of fury were heard from the Virtues' temple.

Intermediate Gods

    Aidan (Diablo
Aidan, God of Doomed Protagonists (Prince Aidan of Khanduras, The Dark Wanderer, Warrior)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aidan_1.jpg
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: Diablo's Soulstone and his sword.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil (Formerly Lawful Good)
  • Portfolio: Slowly possessed by Diablo, Evil Makes You Ugly, Fallen Hero, The Hero in the first Diablo, In the Hood, The Kingslayer, Royal Blood, Unwitting Pawn for Diablo, Warrior Prince
  • Domains: Royalty, Warriors, Corruption, Vessels, Death
  • Allies: Diablo, Baal, Arthas Menethil, Gul'dan
  • Enemies: The Nephalems, Xul, Tyrael, Auriel, Sigurd, Most good aligned Demons and Angels
  • Complicated Relationship: King Leoric (His father)
  • Pitied by: Medivh, Riku, Sakura Matou, Liezerota.
  • Odd Friendship: Harth Stonebrew
  • Famed for defeating Diablo during the darkening of Tristam, Prince Aidan of Khanduras took upon himself to lock up Diablo within himself so he would never escape again. Unfortanely for him, that's what Diablo wanted from him and Aidan slowly lost his humanity overtime eventually becoming the vessel for Diablo, the same fate that his brother Albrecht suffered.
  • The reason he holds that title is because back before he became the Dark Wanderer, everything he did ended up amounting to nothing. He failed to save both his kingdom from his father and his brother from Diablo and even when he tried to contain the demon between him, that only made things worse.
  • Even after his ascension, Aidan has lost control over his own actions and only follows the order from Diablo, even though he no longer needs him as a host. The primary reason of why he ascended as the Dark Wanderer is because his soul was completely broken and the man Aidan used to be no longer exist. Not even in the pantheon could Aidan find peace.
  • His relationship with his father is complicated, first because he slayed him once when he returned from the dead and second because Aidan refuses to accept him as his father. Although to Leoric's credit, it pains him that his son is completely gone and only a twisted individual remains.
  • Both Aidan and Arthas met after hearing about their respectives stories and how they went on similar paths. Although Aidan technically counts as an undead, Arthas control of him is minimal due to Diablo's influence being much greater.
  • Medivh feels sorry about Aidan, mostly because he also went through a similar ordeal. But unlike Aidan, Medivh was given a second chance to correct his mistakes. That's why he seeks to restore Aidan's soul and allow him to find peace, a difficult task since Diablo has no intention of letting Aidan go.
    • Medivh wasn't the only one who felt this way, other who also went through a similar experience felt horrified of the fate that befell Aidan. Sakura and Liezerota feel that what happened to Aidan could have easily happen to them too.
  • The tale of Aidan and how he fell from grace is one that terrified Sigurd, since both he and Aidan had similar well intentions but in the end got doomed. Even moreso because at least Sigurd died a man, not getting consumed by a demon. While he's on the lookout in case Aidan ends up spreading terror on his realm, he has expressed pity on him, just like he did on Arvis.
  • One time, Aidan entered a strange tavern that didn't feel like it belonged to his realm. Turns out it wasn't and he decided to challenge some of the patrons that frequented the bar.
    • After that incident, he still keeps a somewhat cordial relationship with the Inkeeper Stonebrew and the dwarf says he is welcome any time he wants. But Aidan doubts if he will return in the future.
  • Has heard of the Nexus and he has been interesting in joining one day. No one is sure if he will enter on behalf of Diablo or as the Warrior he used to be.
  • It's recommended to keep crystal-shaped elements outside of his reach. No one wants him to encrust a soulstone in his forehead again.

    Ayato Amagiri 
Ayato Amagiri, God of Experienced Protagonists (Murakumo)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ayato_amagiri_anime.png
  • Intermediate God (Greater God with fully activated Ser-Veresta)
  • Symbol: The Ser-Veresta (his sword), alternatively the Seidoukan Academy Symbol
  • Theme Song: "Determination of Ayato"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Action Hero, Best Fighter In His School, Purple Hair and Eyes, Having A Powerful Weapon Even By Ogre-Lux's Standards, Sustained Offensive Moves, Became More Powerful and Skilled than His Peers Before The Story Started, Stock Light-Novel Hero, Temporary Power Increases, Chick Magnet, Deliberately Simple Protagonist
  • Domain: Fighting Prowess, Quick Learning, Kidness, Humility
  • Allies: Julis Riessfeld, Kirin Toudou, Luke Skywalker, Kirito and Asuna, Link, Fi, Shido Itsuka, Lux Arcadia, Ikki Kurogane, X-Men, James T. Kirk, Touya Mochizuki
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Magneto
  • Enemies: Darth Sidious, Khan Noonien Singh, All evil-aligned deities in the Houses of War and Commerce
  • In the Asterisk city lies the prestigious Seidoukan Academy, responsible for the training of Genestella, superhuman teenagers that compete in tournaments called Festas. The best and most talented of Seidoukan's students is Ayato Amagiri, a young man from Japan who quickly became a favorite to win the Phoenix Festa and bring Seidoukan to glory after years of stagnation.
  • Compared to other anime protagonists, who start as rookies with great potential that becomes realized over the course of their stories, Ayato is unusual is the sense that he has already developed much of his fighting prowess before his story even begun. To wit: he is an expert with katanas, spears, daggers and barehanded fighting. In the early part of his story, Ayato didn't achieve a higher level of power; he merely remembered techniques and skills his sister taught him to solve the problem at hand.
    • His weapon, the Ser-Veresta, is sentient and can choose its wielder. It chose Ayato because of his magical potential, which so vast that his sister, the Ser-Veresta's previous owner, put a seal on him to keep Ayato from getting destroyed by his own power at an early age. Trying to separate the Ser-Veresta from Ayato is unadvisable as the Ser-Veresta will react violently and engulf the entire area in flames.
  • Glad to learn Kirin Toudou had already made it into the Pantheon and went to visit her. Upon seeing Ayato, Kirin immediately broke into tears and hugged him... then, she grabbed his head and rubbed it against her chest, all the while promising him to stay wtih him forever, much to Ayato's embarassment and the amusement of many gods nearby.
  • Being a magically-enhanced fighter with a Laser Blade, Ayato attracted the interest of Luke Skywalker, who saw much of himself in Ayato and offered to further enhance his training with Jedi techniques. Although such training has proven complicated given that prana and Force powers work differently, Ayato's physical skills have increased tremendously.
    • Darth Sidious has also shown interest in Ayato's fighting prowess and has made attempts to turn Ayato to his cause. Ayato refuses to join Sidious but refrains from attacking him directly, given the power difference between the two.
  • Very good friends with fellow light novel protagonists Shido Itsuka, Lux Arcadia and Touya Mochizuki, often discussing on how to improve their relationships with their harems.
  • Perhaps unsurpisingly, Ayato has gained a friend in Link, who serves as a good partner for sparring matches. Fi, the living spirit of the Master Sword, has attempted to speak to the Ser-Veresta but results have proven inconclusive. According to her, the Ser-Veresta operates on a level of sentience different from most deities.
  • More surprisingly, he became friends with Jeanne d'Arc, who praised Ayato for his kindness and humility despite the state of the world he lived in. Ayato noted Jeanne had the same English voice as Claudia Enfield, and on a sadder note, the same Japanese voice as Ophelia Landlufen. Hearing what happened to Ophelia, Jeanne shed tears and inspired Ayato to find a way to save her, or at least give her peace.
  • Has a lot in common with Ikki Kurogane in spite of the fact their followers are rivals, though it doesn't stop from competing in a light-hearted manner at times. Ikki's girlfriend Stella Vermillion reminds Ayato of Julis and has set out to find a way to help her ascend. After much trouble, his efforts succeeded.
  • Given the discrimination Genestella endure in the mortal plane, he is very good friends with the X-Men, who also promote equal rights for mutants. He is one of the few deities who don't give Cyclops and Professor X too much grief over their more morally grey actions, partially because Claudia Enfield resorts to political subterfuge to give Ayato a chance to win the Festas and keep his conscience clean.
    • Finds it hard to work with Magneto thanks to his more extremist actions against regular humans. Still, Ayato tries not to be so harsh to judge because Magneto suffered oppression in his childhood and Ayato knows he could have turned the same as him if his sister hadn't inspired him to see the good in everyone.
  • Not very fond of Khan Noonien Singh for his actions in making Augments feared and hated in the Star Trek universe. He has worked with James T. Kirk to keep a close watch on him.
  • Ayato's world is under the control of the Integrated Enterprise Foundation, a massive economic conglomerate that has reduced entire countries to slums and oppressed the masses for the sake of profit. Obviously, any deity who oppresses others for money will earn Ayato's enmity.

    Touta Konoe 
Touta Konoe, God of Contrasting Sequel Main Characters (UQ Holder #7, The Incompetent [by Kirie])
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/uq_holder_konoe_touta_render_3_by_ayakayukihiro_d8qr13p.png

  • Enemies: The Mage of the Beginning, Vaas Montenegro, Melkor, Bambi "Buck" Hughes, Hoyt Volker, Amon, Quan Chi, Zobek, Shinnok, Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke, Dracula, Baby
  • Originally ascended alongside Avatar Korra due to the fact he's practically the polar opposite of his predecessor. Touta and Korra became good friends while sharing the same trope seat and remained so after Korra obtained a new seat all her own in a different house — twice — and moved out of his seat the second time.
  • Touta was surprised to see Negi and others in their younger forms in the Pantheon. One particular twist that caught him off guard was finding out that Negi was part of the Chick Magnet Quartet. Another was just how much Konoka and Setsuna look like Honoka and Isana, to the point he actually thought they were the Konoe girls from his time.
  • Evangeline/Yukihime is happy to know that he ascended, seeing as he is her only admitted soft spot. Touta is currently trying to get Yukihime to acknowledge him more. Some think it's because he has a crush on her. He initially denied it but later admitted it himself. He then decided to propose to her right in the open much to her embarrassment.
  • Touta was a little disgruntled to hear that he was actually some type of mixed clone of Negi and Asuna. He has made friends with other artifical humans such as Luke (another clone of someone else) and Sophie.
    • That said, he has volunteered to help the Quartet and their fellow Relationship Enhancers save Negi from the Mage of the Beginning, the very being he was created to kill, after having not only encountered possessed!Negi firsthand but also received Yukihime's hold notice regarding his crush on her.
  • He's currently training in the House of Combat in order to improve his skills, his Healing Factor and more importantly master the Magia Erebrea and Magic Cancel inside him. He uses multiple hula hoops in order to control his magic. Most of it is facilitated or commissioned by Yukihime, but on a few occasions his training has coincided with that of his then-seat partner Korra.
    • Aside from Yukihime and Korra, some of the people he's trained with include Asuka, Mana, Luke, Sophie, Naruto, Jotaro, and shortly after the latter's ascension, Blade. Many of them either have friends in the House of Combat or go there often to keep themselves in practice.
  • He's happy to hear how many of his friends have ascended and make sure he was the first to greet them even though Karin attacked him first in jealousy because he ascended before her when Yukihime also ascended, then again after hearing about his proposal to Yukihime.
  • Touta gets along pretty good with many of the younger kid deities, playing with them whenever he has the time.
  • It's rumored that he's been hanging around Issei as he can now perform his own version of Dress Break.
  • Shares Korra's dislike of Amon, who regards his mixture of light and dark powers as "an abomination" and ominously considers his difficulty with said powers "a step towards justice". He and Korra have already warned Evangeline not to let the Equalist leader steal any of her crosses.
  • Considers Kamina's hypermasculine optimism and badass boasting to be hilarious and often gets involved as well just for kicks whenever they meet. He and Simon are pretty cool with each other as well, with the Digger even offering occasional advice on his romantic issues with Yukihime. Except his romantic desire and his desire to be recognized by Yukihime weren't one and the same. When he came to realize this and instead got together with Kirie, Simon was pressed for comment and only offered a grin of recognition.
  • Chick magnets are also Buck Hughes magnets, so it comes as no surprise Touta has heard of Bambi and his usual employers through Negi and Issei. He had the misfortune of seeing Buck, Hoyt, and Vaas at work from afar, and can't stand them anymore than his friends can.
  • Quan Chi and Shinnok have tried to come after him to steal his Magia Erebea abilities, and Count Dracula has tried to hunt him down in order to convert him to his side as a powerful fellow-daywalking ally. Fortunately, he's gotten consistent allies against both of these threats, with help from Rachel Alucard, Johnny Cage, and Asuna in the case of the evil sorcerer and fallen Elder God and Arcueid Brunestud and the Shiki duo when dealing with the King of Vampires. He could possibly take them himself using his Magia Erebea, but has taken the hint that each side's plans are most likely counting on that power and is grateful to have allies who've caught onto the same thing.
  • Ryoma Sengoku wants to try to take him and figure out how he got made so he can possibly clone him as a loyal minion, or worse, clone his abilities into himself. Upon discovering this, Yukihime has sworn to never let Sengoku touch a hair on Touta's head. He's also warned his other clone friends that Sengoku might be interested in them as well.
  • After seeing Baby ascend to the Pantheon and hearing about the Tuffle parasite's exploits, Touta fully opposes Baby due to both his similarities to and differences from the Mage, making him quite easily a worse villain although perhaps not a greater threat. This and his overall cheerful and gung-ho attitude toward challenges has earned him the favor of Goku and Vegeta. Vegeta even went so far as to name Touta as one of the ones he thinks would've made great Saiyans, earning him a place with a team called the Honorary Forces of Sadala.
  • Brought the UQ Holder crew to a party for Korra's change of seat. At the party, interaction between Illyasviel von Einzbern, Hercules, and Greed the Avaricious led to Edward Elric figuring out that Hercules and Illya's infamous black giant Berserker were one and the same. After Illya and Herc quickly explained the concept of Servants and the Holy Grail War, Touta (along with Korra) instantly decided, much to the chagrin of their companions, that they wanted to spar with Hercules in his Mad Enhancement state in the future.

  • Touya Mochizuki was a just a normal teenager, until he was accidentally struck by lightning and killed by the God of his universe. To make up for it, God offered Touya the chance to be reborn in a magical world and also offers him a special favor: Touya asks that he be allowed to bring his Smartphone with him. God accepts Touya's choice and even gives him magic powers as a further apology for killing him. Since then, Touya has lived a good, adventurous life in the new world, maintaining peace and world between the world's nations, solving mysteries and fighting all manner of magical threats. Because he represented a trope that have gained a lot of traction in modern Japanese fiction, Touya was easily accepted into the Pantheon.
  • Upon his arrival, Touya made a lot of friends who embodied his trope, like Shido Itsuka, Ayato Amagiri and Lux Arcadia. They spent a lot of time talking about how similar and different they were from each other. He also befriended characters who embodied escapism and fun, like Superman, Luke Skywalker and Mario. Unfortunately, there are characters that failed to live up to his trope's best qualities, such as Ichika Orimura and Natsuru Senou. Touya, understanding his trope is very complex and not many people can live up to, has done what he can to help them become more popular and obtain more acceptance among general audiences. Since he was a harem protagonist, Touya became acquainted with Issei Hyodou, who constantly advises him on how to improve his relationships with his ladies. He also sympathizes with Tanukichi Okuma, who tries to maintain some semblance of sexual decency in a world where the laws of sexual decency make no sense at all. Touya is also aware that he sounds just like Shido, Issei, Ichika and Tanukichi.
  • Since he was blessed by his world's deity, Touya made allies with some of the creator gods in the Pantheon, like Eru Ilúvatar from Middle-earth and Aslan from Narnia. Touya has a lot of respect towards fatherly gods and always defers to their judgment in godly matters. However, even Touya understands not all creator gods are infallible, as the God of his world proved. Arceus, the God of the Pokemon world, can be temperamental and does not take kindly to treason, but fortunately, much like Ash Ketchum before him, Touya has proven to be a calming influence on the Alpha Pokémon.
  • Deities who seek to subjugate mortals do not impress Touya, so perhaps it is no surprise that Melkor, YHVH and Darkseid have become his enemies. Touya also does not take it kindly to humans that seek to usurp the gods, which is why Isaac Ray Pelham Wescott and Makuta Teridax have been added to his hitlist. Being a demigod, Touya exists to embody the best of both worlds and his duty is to protect deities and mortals, sometimes from each other and themselves. Such dedication earned him respect from Mata Nui.
  • Most of his magic power comes from his smartphone, which provides an Internet connection even in a medieval fantasy world. With his smartphone, Touya can cast spells, create weapons, construct structures, teleport, among others. That would make him nigh-unstoppable in his homeworld, but the Pantheon is an entirely different story, forcing Touya to constantly update his magical knowledge. To that end, he has become friends with Harry Potter, who uses his position in the House of Magic to help Touya further his magical studies. Harry's friend, Hermione Granger, was fascinated by Touya's smartphone and is trying her best to understands its functions.
  • Unfortunately, Touya has gained some unwanted attention in the form of Voldemort, who seeks to uncover Touya's magical secrets in an attempt to increase his power and influence within the Pantheon. Touya was attacked in his own temple by Lord Tirek, who attempted to absorb Touya's enormous magic power. Fortunately, Touya's magical reserves were so vast that it would take a long time to adversely affect him, giving Touya more than enough time to defeat Tirek and boot him out of his temple.
  • Doctor Strange isn't all too fond of Touya, because he mostly downloads his spells from information sources while Strange had to perfect skills through practice and training. Strange even referred to Touya as the magical equivalent of a Millennial. Touya don't pays Strange any attention, seeing him as old-fashioned and arrogant. They do, at least, hold some respect for each other's skills. He has a much more positive relationship with Doctor Fate and tries to help Kent Nelson maintain his humanity despite his godlike power. Fate even introduced Touya to a fellow magical god, Shiroe, known for his brilliant tactical expertise. Since he doesn't have much experience in full-scale warfare, Touya defers to Shiroe for military affairs.
  • Occasionally visits the House of Technology for upgrades and apps for his smartphone. Many gods are fascinated by his phone have asked to borrow it to further their attempts to hybridize technology and magic. Touya reluctantly agrees, but only if it's done for peaceful purposes. Anything beyond that and he risks causing an arms' race.
  • Has the utmost respect for Kirito and Touma Kamijou, who helped shape the trope he embodies. Unfortunately, this caused a brawl between their followers. Detractors said that characters like Kirito and Touma were much better than Touya because their stories contain true tragedy and pathos and Touya was merely coasting along and pretending he knows suffering. Fortunately, Touya was able to defuse situation by stating that, yes, he got off lucky compared to Kirito and Touma and everyday, he must remind himself of how lucky he was. Touya's friends came his defense and said that Touya's story is enjoyable because it is escapism and it motivates viewers to use their imaginations and not take everything too seriously.
  • Very reluctant to go to the House of Love, as the Goddess of Love from his universe straight-up admitted she enjoys putting him in difficult situations with his love interests because it makes his story fun.

    Claude (Grand Theft Auto
Claude, God of Silent Protagonists (Fido, Handyman, Snake Without a Tongue)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/claude.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: A Baseball Bat or any weapon he carries
  • Theme Song: The Grand Theft Auto III theme
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Never ever speaking a word, Looking for Revenge against the one who wronged him, Usually betraying those he works for after being betrayed himself, Getting back at those who mistreated/betrayed him, Implied muteness and still kicking ass, Limited Wardrobe, Only in It for the Money, Tall, Dark, and Handsome, Never losing his cool even when angry
  • Domains: Crime, Car Theft, Revenge, Muteness
  • Allies: Niko Bellic, The Capers, Jack Sparrow, Sona Buvelle, Most of the House of Crime
  • Rivals: Carl "CJ" Johnson, Mario
  • Enemies: All of the House of Justice, Vito Corleone, Link, Raynare
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Huang Lee, Tommy Vercetti, Bloody Marie, Peacock
  • Envied by: Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Pities: Colette Brunel, Itsuki Inubozaki
  • Commonality Connection: Sakura Matou
  • Complicated Relationships: Active Mafia/Crime syndicate members who don't antagonize him, as well as Mob Children. Specifically- Giorno Giovanna, Bruno Buccellati, and Mion and Shion Sonozaki.
  • Who is Claude and what are his motivations is entirely unknown to everyone except himself, so it's no surprise that the criminal was going to eventually find his way to the Pantheon. Because he never emits a sound and is the protagonist of his own story, he naturally got the position of Silent Protagonists.
    • In reality, he stole it from the previous holder, Link. The latter was not happy in the slightest and attacked Claude. However, the Court of Gods intervened before a catastrophe happened. After a long investigation, Claude was given the title legitimately, since Link still makes sounds.
  • Vito Corleone didn't like Claude one bit after hearing what he did to the mafia he has worked on, so he gave a "shoot on sight" order whenever the latter is around. Claude hates him just as much, given his uncanny resemblance to Salvatore Leone, the mafia boss who tried to set him up.
  • After the above incident, Claude has considered taking down all the mafia operations in the pantheon, given the fact that earning the ire of one Mafia Boss was enough to damage his own reputation. This, in turn, made him the unlikely ally of both Bloody Marie and Peacock, two victims of Mafia operations in the past. They indeed don't trust Claude, but when it comes to taking down mobsters, he sure is effective.
  • Has often been hired to work with Hotel Moscow on the occasion they need a hitman. The Russian mobsters don't trust him one bit, but he is surprisingly effective if the price is right. Claude himself doesn't care about them, and has no qualms of getting rid of them if they try something funny.
  • Gets along with Jack Sparrow, in the sense that both are men who have been constantly betrayed and hold loyalty toward no one but themselves. Funnily enough, they don't trust each other most of the time, but they consider themselves friends.
  • Being the face of one of the most successful games to make the jump to 3D, he has developed a rivalry with Mario, given that their franchises have been going strong to this day. He wonders if Mario has connections to a Mafia given his Italian heritage.
    • Sonic, on the other hand, envies him for being successful in 3D. Claude doesn't care about the Hedgehog one bit.
  • Not very fond of Raynare, given that Claude had a nasty and abusive relationship with his last girlfriend, Catalina. However, while he didn't say this himself, it is implied that Claude finds the fallen angel a joke compared to what Catalina is capable of.
  • It has been implied that Claude is actually mute, explaining why he doesn't talk. This actually drew the attention of fellow mute woman Sona Buvelle, who- in a strange turn of events- gets along really well with Claude. The reason why? He finds her cute and not annoying like many women that were in his life.
  • Has found common ground with Sakura Matou because they both took revenge on those who mistreated them. However, Sakura is sure to be careful around Claude given his criminal background, but the latter doesn't really care about what he can do to her.
  • While Claude is already a divisive figure among crime syndicates, he surprisingly doesn't get on the wrong side of both Giorno Giovanna and Bruno Buccellati. While they are allied with Vito (arguably the one who antagonizes Claude the most), they have agreed that they won't harm each other provided Claude stays far away from Vito.
    • He is also surprisingly chill with those who come from a Family with ties to the Mafia. As such, he seems to respect Mion and Shion Sonozaki, given their ties to the Yakuza (arguably the only group that didn't mistreat Claude...most of the time). However, the girls are wary about him, fearing that he may lash out on them if their family double-crossed him.
  • Has the uncanny ability to change the moon size if he shoots it with a sniper rifle. The House of Knowledge are cracking their heads at trying to understand how he can do that. This trick can also be done by his fellow GTA ascendants, Tommy Vercetti and CJ.
  • His relations with fellow Grand Theft Auto deities varies depending on who he has to deal with:
    • He remembers meeting CJ back in San Andreas, where he lost against him in a race (that he got himself into on behalf of Catalina). Claude really doesn't care about the gangster, but they bonded on how intolerable she was. Carl laughed when he learned that Claude finally got rid of that crazy bitch and they left each other in pretty good terms, but they still consider themselves rivals.
    • He isn't fond of either Tommy Vercetti or Huang Lee, given their respective ties with the Mafia and Triad, which Claude was never on good terms with anyway. However, Tommy is amused that Claude succeeded in getting rid of the last remnants of power the Forellis had and congratulated him for it.
    • Niko Bellic is the only one he can tolerate to be around, given that the Serbian has also had his fair share of troubles with Mafias and Betrayal. While Niko has been off the grid for a while, they still like to hang out, even though Claude isn't very talkative (or talkative at all). Funnily enough, Claude was kind enough to lend his clothes to Niko on certain ocassions.
    • The Los Santos Crew have considered him to join on their operations. Claude would gladly work for them, if the pay is worth it. Trevor has also taken Claude under his wing after hearing about his story, though Claude has his doubts since Trevor reminds him a lot about Catalina.
  • Can also be found in the House of Voices. But don't expect him to talk much.

    Hareta 
Hareta, Herald of Shonen Heroes
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hareta_dpa.png
  • Lesser God by himself, Intermediate God fighting with his Pokémon, Greater God if said Pokémon is Regigigas or Giratina
  • Symbol: His hat and scarf, even if he doesn't like wearing them that much.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Being the typical Shonen hero, Big Eater, Friend to all Pokémon, Determinator, growing up in the wild, not liking shoes or clothing for that matter
  • Domains: Pokémon, Nature, Fighting.
  • Heralds: His Pokémon team, consisting of an Empoleon, Misdreavus, Lucario, Minun, Luxray, and Regigigas, even if the latter is already ascended.
  • Allies:
  • Enemies: Lysandre, Pokémon Hunter J, Ghetsis Harmonia, Light Yagami
  • Conflicting Opinions: Giovanni, Misa Amane
  • On Good Terms with: Cyrus, Team Rocket
  • There has been a growing certain number of characters who have a similar character trait amongst others; namely, they're all kind, full of determination and power, eat a lot, and generally don't have high intelligence. Nothing wrong with them; it was just a very quick quirk people begun to pick up. It was only a matter of time before someone ascended that basically embodied this character cliche. After finishing his adventure in the Sinnoh region and getting started up on a whole new adventure dedicated to meeting various Pokémon, Hareta seemed like a perfect candidate, what with his childish yet friendly and energetic nature, with some strength and a big appetite to boot. The Pantheon decided to have other Shonen heroes go down to announce the news to him, namely Luffy, Ichigo, Toriko, Goku and Naruto.
    • However, his ascension wasn't without trouble, as Hareta was first contacted swinging around tree to tree alongside a wild Aipom horde, forcing the announcers of his ascension to dodge or get trampled, leading to Ichigo getting tramped and having an Aipom steal Luffy's Straw Hat, causing him to chase after it in anger. Even when Hareta noticed them and decided to stop to at least check them out, he seemingly ignored their efforts before mention that there are even more kinds of Pokémon in the Pantheon, causing him to riled up and declared it as his next destination. He also helped out Luffy with not only getting his hat back but also with befriending the Aipom, further cementing his spot here. Even if their announcement of his ascension didn't get off to the best start, he did end up befriending those that came to tell him of his ascension, you know, considering his title and what not.
  • By far and large the one thing most people picked up about him that makes him different from any other Pokémon trainer is that, well, he might as well be described as a Pokémon himself. His own father decided to leave him in the wild under the watch of a professor, and if that sounds like some kind of Hilariously Abusive Childhood, there's actually more to it. His father has sensed that Hareta could communicate deeply with other Pokémon, and decided that it would be best for Hareta to grow up alongside other Pokémon to help hone in his skill. Given the adventure that he had succeeded in prior to his ascension, there may of been a method to the madness.
  • As a Wild Child, gets along swimmingly with Mowgli. Also helps that his temple is one of the few places he can go without his clothes on, save for some shorts. Some members of the house of Love has told him that clothing was optional in several areas in their temple, but for different reasons. Not that Hareta really has any plans on going in there. He hates clothing, but will wear them when not in a temple that allows it, much to his dismay.
    • Gets along equally well with Tarzan, even sparring with him from time to time with Hareta's own Pokémon. Tarzan is quite surprised and amused by the fact that Hareta act actually hold up his own decently well in a fight. Helps that Hareta actually joined in his Pokémon in a Pokémon battle when battling Mitsumi, who was forced to fight for Team Galactic after they held her favorite Pokémon hostage.
      • Found a similar soul within George Of The Jungle, what with his energetic personality and their insistence on not wanting to wear clothes and shoes. George even gave a hearty chuckle upon seeing Hareta accidentally swing into a tree from a vine while observing a Pokémon battle from a distance.
  • Gets along well with all Pokémon, NO EXCEPTION. Upon seeing Pokémon ascended here from previous and future generations together, he has begun racing around house to house trying to find them all and befriend them.
    • The most surprising is from his own journey started upon hearing of a Pokémon that could be considered a god and pledging to meet it. He succeeded in not only meeting Dialga, but also Palkia, and even spoiled a plan Cyrus was working on involving sending the world back to the start to become a god to boot. He was very excited to see them ascended and has became great friends with them.
    • He has also befriended the Legendary and Mythical Pokémon Deoxys, Shaymin, and Heatran. The former he actually met before his journey, having a battle royale which got interrupted by a Drifloon explosion, and later help rescue him from Team Galactic and pitching in to help rescue Mars, even if she was the one who tried to capture him. Shaymin he already befriended when he found him wandering through his forest. The latter he met after Charon tried to wake it up to sell him for money, which Hareta foiled by raging after one too many people demanded him to do something and flooded the whole cave with Empoleon, even if it woke him up. Even after Heatran woke up, Hareta and his friends helped put the magma stone back where it belonged to help him sleep.
    • Surprisingly, Hareta was able to not only befriend Regigigas, but also capture and tame him. Even if the Pantheon's Regigigas has came from another universe and Hareta has his own, Regigigas will act like he is owned by him if his other Pokémon partner doesn't mind or need him, especially after hearing how Hareta managed to use the move Skill Swap to not only replace his Slow Start ability, but also to give it another good one. He doesn't need it thanks to his Protean, but still is impressed by him. And yes, this means that should a situation call for it, Hareta can use technically TWO Regigigases at once. Tread carefully should you plan on pissing him off...
    • Despite all of this, don't be too concerned about his record befriending Legendary Pokémon; Hareta has zero plans on actually capturing them for his own Pokémon battles (save his own Regigigas); he claims that Legendary Pokémon are friends of everyone, and shouldn't be bound by trainers. That said, should there be an absolutely good reason for him to take control of them, he most certainly will.
  • Is generally well-liked amongst other Pokémon trainers, with the most noticeable one being N, who was floored by his ability to communicate with other Pokémon, and Hareta was equally amazed by just friendly he is with a majority of Pokémon. Of course, like every other ally of N, he found himself quickly despising and loathing Ghetsis Harmonia. Ash and Red were quick to praise him for his love for Pokémon and amazement for being able to communicate with them. Wally is certainly interested in Hareta, but he does wish he isn't that energetic. Even if Wally did get better to the point his full speed can knock down heavy things, he still has trouble keeping up with Hareta.
    • On another note with various Pokémon trainers, even if it does take him a while to realize that a Pokémon contest won't allow some the stuff he normally does, he's still a surprisingly formidable foe thanks to his ability to communicate with Pokémon.
  • Hates, hates, HATES, Hunter J, as he doesn't have any patience whatsoever towards those that are willing to sell out friends for money. He does have some pity towards her own Pokémon she uses, and while sad that Drapion feels forced to help her, he does seem to understand, and is willing to battle it for fun if he has to during her bounty hunting missions. The only possible reason they would even think about stopping their grudge against each other is if Lysandre is causing enough trouble to cause a Pokémon extinction, which they both think is much worse than each other.
  • As a fellow human who Speaks Fluent Animal, has struck a close relationship with Eliza Thornberry, with the former helping her learn and talk with Pokémon that she has trouble with understanding, and the latter teaching him about actual animals. Sure he also fights with them, but it's obvious with him that he's fighting with them as fun for the both of them, even joining in on the fights as well should he feel like it. Eliza has certainly taken quite an interest in Hareta, though refuses to say anything else besides blushing and making excuses to leave.
  • While he hasn't gained a chance to meet up with Giovanni, he does hope that his days of selling Pokémon are behind, and if not, he's certainly ready to throw down the gauntlet with him to stop his crimes. This animosity doesn't carry over to Team Rocket, as he seems them as harmless goons (even after they Took a Level in Badass), even if they do work with Giovanni, and always willing to challenge them to a Pokémon fight. Team Rocket's reactions to him are generally pretty miffed due to constantly botching up their schemes, but since Hareta sometimes have picnics with him, they see him as a Worthy Opponent, and are more than willing to team up with him should there be a bigger threat in the works.
  • Surprisingly, seems to get along rather nicely with Cyrus of all people. This was because during his adventure they developed a Worthy Opponent relationship with each other which led to Cryus performing a Heel–Face Turn and disbanding Team Galactic. As such, when Hareta is with him, his personality seems to shift over to his endgame manga counterpart.

  • Domains: Military, Madness, Despair, Mercy, Cruelty, Leadership, Regret, Bloodlust, Fire, Harsh Truths
  • Allies: Raiden, Kiritsugu Emiya, Sayaka Miki, Booker DeWitt, Niko Bellic, Iji Katasier, Yuji Sakai, Dempsey
  • Enemies: Wizard and Boomstick, Ali al-Saachez, Sundowner, the ascended cast of Undertale, many Middle Eastern deities, Neutral and Paragon Commander Shepard, Heinz Windermere
  • Opposes: Nier
  • Opposed By: Captain America, Renegade Commander Shepard, the good deities from the House of War, Walter White, the Mann Co. Mercenaries, especially Heavy Weapon Guy, Big Boss
  • Complicated Relationship with: Setsuna F. Seiei, (Insert Name Here), Yahtzee
  • Evil Counterpart to: Many Action Heroes in general, but specifically Nathan Drake, Captain John Price; the Human Child, Ana Amari
  • Ascended after the gods in the Pantheon heard about the sheer destruction that his desire to be a hero caused (namely almost (and some case completely) annihilating Dubai, the death of 47 civilians, the death of the CIA troops, the Damned 33rd, both of his squadmates, Walker's own sanity and, in many cases, himself as well as the first evacuation team sent to the city). All four different versions of Walker ascended, but the one was chosen to represent his temple was the one that decided to surrender his weapons and go home due to being the only one that actually sane enough to run the temple.
    • After his ascension, Walter White has vowed to get rid of Walker. Not out of any personal grudge, but because Walker took one of his temples, and White fears that might hurt his reputation and influence within the Pantheon.
  • While he genuinely liked the game Walker came from, Yahtzee finds him a horrific asshole (especially for the White Phosphorous bombing) and thinks that he doesn't deserve to live, let alone ascend.
  • Greets all of his followers with a line: "The truth is that all of you are here because you wanted to feel like something you're not. A hero."
  • Walker reserves special contempt for Wiz and Boomstick, and finds the death battles an immature glorification of war. His dislike of Ali al-Saachez, who views war as a playground to murder for fun, is even greater - claiming that even with his insanity, he still realized that War Is Hell. This hatred makes him to lend his help to a (reluctant) Setsuna Seiei, who is uncomfortable working with Walker after hearing about what he has done and his mental state.
  • Walker has also forged a cordial relationship with Iji, as they have both been changed and broken as a result of war. While Walker is impressed with how she (the "Pacifist" aspect) was able to stick with her principles despite the war around her, he's concerned that she already had to become a little insane (her really "technical" pacifism, for one) in order to reach her goal.
    • He also pities the "Berserker" aspect for similar reasons, and is sort of glad that unlike some of the other versions of him, "Berserker" Iji learned her lesson upon death and subsequent ascension.
  • Was initially approached by the Pantheon for a position in the Alpha-Omega Force, an offer that was unfortunately accepted by the heroically inclined Walker, who chose to, on his first op, open fire on the evacuation team for Dubai. What followed was a catastrophic first mission in which Walker ignored orders and gunned down countless enemies, fellow soldiers, and civilians, all justified with Walker's refrain of "I Did What I Had to Do". The Pantheon immediately removed Walker from the position, replaced him with Captain America, and forbade him from ever even getting near anyone from the Force again. Their position was only strengthened after a psychological evaluation discovered that his mental state was dangerously unstable at best and schizophrenic or acutely psychotic at worst.
  • Has found a kindred spirit in Raiden and Yuji Sakai, especially with regards to their shared moments of desperation and insanity. Raiden especially sympathizes with the lieutenant's hardships in war, though he doesn't condone Walker's actions.
  • Is friends with newcomer with Kiritsugu Emiya, due to having similar views on war - though he is a little shocked by the latter's extreme pragmatism.
  • Has been seen sharing several moments with Sayaka Miki, thanks to both being forced to have their views about justice and heroism uprooted which drove them both to terrible breakdowns. He is thus… not fond of Kyubey, but admires Madoka for remaining un-corrupted by selfishness in her heroism and her role in easing the burden of her soldiers. Even if he does find the concept of cute pubescent girl soldiers weird. As for his opinion on Homura Post-Upheaval, he has yet to provide a comment.
  • He is not well-liked by many other soldiers for his part in the destruction of Dubai, especially with the possibility that Walker may have killed himself rather than face justice or killed the evacuation team to Dubai (or died trying). This included the heroic deities from the House of War, Captain America, and John Price. Even when Commander Shepard is fully Renegade, s/he still chastises and is reluctant to work with Walker because s/he thinks Walker is a disaster waiting to happen with his tendency to shoot first and ask questions later.
    • On the other hand, the more neutral soldiers like Booker DeWitt and Dempsey are more forgiving of Walker and feel pity for the effects of war on him.
  • Big Boss has made it clear that, though he pities the young man, he has nothing but hatred for Walker. Though The Legendary Soldier at first merely ignored the lieutenant, when Walker tried to talk to him about "being a hero", he accidentally launched Big Boss into one hell of a "The Reason You Suck" Speech, only responding in acknowledgement of his point:
    Big Boss: Don't you dare talk to me about heroism! Some people may see you as some sort of tragic figure or some other crap like that, but I know what you are, Walker; you are that little pompous kid who found his daddy's gun one day and thought it made him Captain America! I've seen war heroes, hell, I was a war hero long before you even knew what a gun was, and let me tell you something I know too well; all those heroes? They didn't want to be heroes. They just wanted to help people, to do what they could, but when they returned home, the only thing they could see was the ghosts of the people they murdered! If everything you did was just out of some childish desire to be a hero, then maybe, maybe, I could understand, but you involved civilians, you destroyed Dubai, and worst of all? You got your men killed! And for what? So that you could play "hero"? I've done a lot of things that I'm not proud of, but I never deluded myself that what I was doing wouldn't send me straight to hell! You were fighting a losing battle in Dubai, kid, I'll admit that much. But none of that would have happened if you had just stopped! When you tried to tell that colonel you dreamt up how you never wanted to hurt anyone, this is what he meant when he said "no one ever does". I can never atone for what I've done. I know that. But you? Everything you did was to make you feel like something you're not: a hero. So tell me, Walker: do you feel like a hero yet?
    Walker: ...Who said I did...?
  • Made friends with the Easter-European Niko Bellic because of their similar war experiences. Niko admires Martin for how he didn't resort to Crime after war unlike him, but reassured him that he did also consider a similar path and no one is lucky enough to recover entirely.
  • Many action heroes feel uneasy interacting with Walker because many consider him to be a dark mirror of what they could be. This applies especially true for Nathan Drake and John Price.
    • Ana Amari was horrified when she learned of him, because she saw in him a dark reflection of herself, the person she could've been if she gave in to her vengeance and grief instead of focusing it on helping people. She has been trying to talk to Walker to help him with his emotional state.
  • The Mann Co. Mercenaries don't like him, especially the Soldier, after they watched a certain video.
    • Walker requested the aid of the Investigation Team (despite their misgivings they have toward him) to help face himself once more. Only the sanest version that runs the temple succeeded in acquiring a Persona (and was lucky to be the first to accompany them); the rest ended in disaster, two even turned on the Investigation Team, and one successfully ended up making most of them respawn in the House of Life and Death before getting killed himself. Because of that, Yu and company kept their distance from Walker ever since.
  • Many of the ascended Undertale deities feel disgust with Walker's actions because it reminds them of a version of the Human Child when they took the "Genocide" route.
    • On the other hand, Walker's encounter with the Human Child went much more smoothly than what people expected, considering the fact that both their games deconstructed video game violence. The most heroic version of Walker reminded the kid to never forget that as a human, they always has a choice to save or kill others.
  • Like his game, Walker has a... complicated relationship with (Insert Name Here). Walker is enraged whenever he encounters them, blaming them for giving no choice except for committing the atrocities that he did. In turn, the INH feels disgusted and horrified by the actions committed by Walker while they repeatedly stated that they were increasingly unable to rein him in as the narrative went on. Konrad,or rather, Walker's hallucination of him, frequently pops up during these encounters and mocks both Walker and INH, making the situation worse.
  • He is unwelcome in many temples held by deities from the Middle Eastern area for his role in escalating (and potentially dooming) the conflict in Dubai. Walker has been acknowledging his mistakes and trying to atone for them, but still agrees to avoid their temples as much as possible.
  • Upon hearing of Heinz Windermere's actions, Walker actually had a nervous breakdown, leading him to infiltrate Heinz's temple. Once inside, Walker cornered Heinz and aimed a gun at his head, but fortunately several security officers were passing by and heard Walker yelling something at Heinz, and proceeded to take him into custody. After this incident, Heinz refused to talk about what Walker said to him. The only thing anyone was able to get out of him was this exchange:
    Heinz: "I never meant for any of this to happen."
  • Walker has contempt for Nier despite sympathizing with his desire to protect/rescue Yonah. Walker at least had the excuse of being completely insane when he failed to save Dubai. Nier on the other hand was willfully ignorant of the consequences of his actions like the extinction of the human race and took no time to reflect on them.

  • Respected By: House of Love and Friendship
  • Conflicting Opinion: Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, Homura Akemi, Doctor Doom

  • You can make the assumption that one would be excited to see one of their parents get married into monarchy. Such is the case for Sofia Balthazar once her mother Miranda wedded with King Roland II of Enchancia. Sure Sofia was happy to see herself in a rather privileged position... until realizing that she had to be knowledgeable and adept in magic to prove herself a legitimate princess. Thus, Sofia was enrolled into Royal Prep, being mentored and taught under the good fairies, Flora, Fauna and Merryweather on using magic. Soon enough, she receives the Amulet of Avalor, allowing her to communicate with animals and call upon the other Disney Princesses for their advice and help. As time goes on, Sofia begins to realize the challenges and ethics of being a princess, alongside honing her magical talents and embarking on several adventures in and out of Enchancia.
  • She ascended into the Pantheon by proving her worth as a princess and user of magic by defeating the Wicked Witch, Vor, through The Power of Love. Given the usual themes and messages Disney works tend to exhibit, Sofia was seen as one of the more triumphant examples of presenting them. Still, as a child, defeating a potential world-threatening threat doesn't mean Sofia knows everything about magic. The Pantheonic world is full of magic Sofia is rather unfamiliar with. Still, given her demeanour, she's careful to tread thin lines.
  • Sofia very quickly became a popular resident among the ascended Disney characters in the Pantheon. Obviously enough, she feels most accommodated with the Disney Princesses, given how she's actually interacted with them in her home universe. The Princesses are more than welcome to visit her during free times and to help one another, given that Sofia still keeps hold of the Amulet of Avalor
  • She was curious to learn about the concept of Princesses of Heart, which was comprised of the Disney Princesses Sofia knows and possess pure hearts which were key to opening up Kingdom Hearts. To her surprise, she can be considered a potential candidate for the next line of the Princesses of Heart given her role as a genuine princess.
    • All things considered, she was incredibly accommodated with Sora, who has worked with and protected the Disney Princesses several times and Sora is even willing to aid her in any given quests. Sofia is more closer to Kairi as the latter is a Princess of Heart herself and that she's a Keyblade wielder in-training, which the former could see as pretty relatable. Often times than not, Sofia and Kairi would hang out with one another doing their personal hobbies together or practising their magical skills. And before someone asks, Sofia has had some practice in sword fighting so she's happy to spar against Kairi and be taught in defending herself better, given Kairi's Keyblade training.
    • Her affiliation with Kairi also led Sofia to get into contact with Naminé, who easily got along with the princess and Naminé would often try to draw with the princess. Regarding combat training, Sofia takes some lessons with Pearl and Connie Maheswaran who are eager to prepare her for what dangers the Pantheon presents. Although Sofia is more content with simply mediating between being a princess and maintaining her proficiency with magic and her relationships with her friends and family.
  • Sofia and Charlotte aBouff became very good friends with one another almost immediately. Charlotte expressed surprise on how Sofia got to be indicated into royalty upon her mother's marriage. Although she understood her desire to be a princess, Sofia did tell Charlotte about the hardships of being one. She still wishes for the best to Charlotte, who's preparing herself more for the day she becomes a princess.
  • With her ability to communicate with all kinds of animals using the Amulet of Avalor and being able to shift into other animals, Sofia is generally accepted in her visitations to the House of Beast and she usually has fun running and playing with the creatures there. That said, she can't transform into every animal, given that she needs to at least see an animal physically and picture it mind to assure said transformation. Rexxar and Bahamut are willing to teach her in disciplining the bestiary around, though Sofia has other matters to tend to for the time being.
    • There are malicious beasts, such as Dag, Sharptooth and Tiamat running amok in the House whom Sofia stays wary of. Still, she can manage dealing with Dag and Sharptooth. Tiamat, on the other hand, is a threat that threatens the House of Beast as a whole, despite being part of the Beasthood, so Sofia isn't really in any position to combat against her without any assistance. Luckily, Tiamat has other interests to tend to, though she herself isn't fond of the fact that Sofia is friends with Bahamut.
  • The fact that she could communicate with animals led her to become fast friends with Eliza Thornberry, who was surprised and interested in her amulet. That said, Eliza's ability to speak to animals is natural whereas Sofia has to rely on her amulet. Regardless, Sofia and Eliza keep in contact a lot, particularly if the latter has to deal with a mythical animal.
  • While she's close to reaching teenage age, Sofia is actually quite witty and calculating when it comes to her thinking and goals. It's something a lot of deities tend to gloss over, and hence, underestimate, given how many times Sofia has outgambitted her family several times if things don't go her way. Still, she does love her family dearly, especially considering she bought them along as her heralds, but she isn't afraid to conspire behind others' backs if she's either slighted or needs to accomplish a goal.
    • Aragorn and Zelda have scolded her for acting childishly devious at times. Given their reputation and power they possess, Sofia isn't in any position to rebel against them. And even then, she highly respects the two of them and Aragorn and Zelda are more than welcome to help her out and that she's deeply caring about her friends and family.
  • While she gets along with many of the good-aligned rulers in the Pantheon, there are also just many many Evil Overlords and Wicked Witches to deal with as well. Most prominent are Maleficent, who eerily reminds Sofia of Vor, Sauron who finds Sofia's empowerment via love to be something similar to Friendship and Palpatine who firmly established himself as the most evil Disney villain in the Pantheon. Sofia also heavily dislikes Master Xehanort for orchestrating plans that involved endangering the Disney Princesses and is willing to fight against him alongside Sora and the other Keyblade wielders.
    • Of course there are others Sofia hates, such as Voldemort, Darkseid, Griffith and Malekith, but the previous four seem to be ones Sofia takes most issues on. Still, Griffith attracts hate to anybody for reasons Sofia shouldn't know. Voldemort and Darkseid don't really have an opinion on Sofia, though the former is vehemently opposed to even the slightest hint of The Power of Love while the latter would just rather troll her by sitting on her couch and then intimidate her with death before leaving. Malekith, on the other hand, was not well received due to him and the Dark Elves enslaving beasts into their servitude and Sofia was furious to learn of how callous and arrogant Malekith is regarding his right to rule. Not helping matters is his proficiency in magic, which he learned from his mother, Morathi.
    • That said, there are those that Sofia can manage to tolerate. Bowser, despite constantly kidnapping Princess Peach and threatening galaxies, will sometimes have fun with Mario and his friends and Mr Nintendo even sees him as a friend. Not to mention Bowser loves his son and his troops genuinely respect him. Crow, for all his unabashed villainy also treats those he kidnaps and his foes with as much respect as his guests. Settra is a more difficult matter, given the Tomb Kings' solitary nature. However, Sofia was able to learn the Tomb Kings' mindset and confront the king himself. Settra allows Sofia to travel across his domains and is willing to help her out if there's a mutual goal... so long as she doesn't interrupt with his or any of the Tomb Kings' treasure and graves, which she's made sure she'll never disturb.
  • Sofia spends a lot of time in the House of Magic, mainly to see the many different uses of magic and what new friends she could make from there. She easily got along with the Magical Girl Sisterhood and dreams of one day being a part of the Magical Girl Sisterhood. Among the other magic practitioners she became friends with were Zatanna and Akko Kagari. She's expressed interest in performing magic tricks with Zatanna while she's eager to help Akko in using magic more carefully and with more control.
    • Outside of the House of Magic, Sofia is also friends with Schierke. She herself is rather perplexed by Schierke's lack of social skills and often tries to engage her in different activities. At least Guts is open to let Sofia and Schierke hang out together if that's one good thing.
  • As a Princess, She can also be seen residing in the Heirs Sub-House.
From the silver flying horses, Of the ever golden glades, To the dragons on the cliff tops, Of the blazing palisades Enchancia, Enchancia Come hear our humble call, Enchancia, Enchancia, A land for one and all. Where the valiant knights protect us, From the darkest evil spells, And your wishes all come true here, If they're made in wishing wells Enchancia, Enchancia A beacon shining bright Enchancia, Enchancia, Where all our dreams take flight!

  • Three years after the eight Digidestined went on their adventure, a new crisis arised in the Digital World; a boy calling himself the Digimon Kaiser was going around enslaving Digimon and building Dark Towers that prevented evolution. Three new Digivices were granted to hotheaded soccer player Daisuke, energetic, tech-savvy Miyako and the young but mature Iori, who met their fated Digimon partners capable of an ancient evolution known as Armor Evolution that could counter the Dark Towers' power and fight the Kaiser. Thus the original Digidestined, with the exception of Takeru and Hikari, had to step aside to let the new generation save the Digital World. Taichi even passed his goggles on to Daisuke, in addition to the Crests passing on to the new team members in the form of the Digimentals, the catalysts of Armor Evolution.
    • The Digimon Kaiser turned out to also be a Digidestined: Ken Ichijouji, a brilliant but misanthropic boy who treated the Digital World as a game where he could do anything he wanted, not understanding that it was all real. Eventually the heroes stopped him, and after learning some lessons as a result of his partner Wormmon dying in the process, he decided to atone and eventually became part of the team.
  • Three years after their adventures, Daisuke and co. discovered a new plot threatening the two worlds, but were beaten nearly to the point of death by Alphamon. At that point, Enter took advantage of the fact that Ken was a High Priest by kidnapping and corrupting him into becoming the Digimon Kaiser again. Omegamon summoned the other three to save their friend. It was a difficult enterprise due to their confidence falling to rock bottom after their defeat and the fact that they didn't have their friends to Jogress with, but with the help of Omegamon and many other sympathetic deities, plus some creative use of Armor Evolution, they managed to rescue Ken and defeat Enter. The Main House then decided it was as good a time as any to make them proper deities.
  • Given that Milleniumon was the first Digimon Ken opposed (his first digital adventure ended with him helping Ryo defeat it) and one of the reasons why he became the Kaiser, due to it implanting a Dark Seed in Ken, it goes without saying that he was not happy to hear that the Digimon was already in the Pantheon. The fact that Millenniumon was born out of the Kimeramon that Ken created as the Kaiser was a deep shock to him, and made him regret his past actions even more, thinking that it's the punishment he deserves. Daisuke, Miyako and Iori followed suit in opposing it, for being the cause of their comrade's distress and wanting to destroy everything... Or at least, they would have if it hadn't turn out that Milleniumon had found a partner for itself in the Pantheon, in the form of a peppy Playful Hacker known as Radical Ed. None of the kids could believe their eyes, but Ed assured them that Milleniumon was her friend and asked them not to delete it as long as it was under her control. While the Digidestined don't trust Milleniumon one bit and told it they'd take it down if it tried anything funny, they've decided to trust Ed after hearing of her reputation. In fact, they hang out with her pretty often at Miyako's insistence as she's fascinated with her abilities with computers.
  • While they have a truce with Millenniumon, the foursome are as determined as ever to stop any threats in the Digital World, be they homicidal viruses or megalomaniac computers, and work together with fellow Tamers and the White Hats in putting a stop to them.
  • In their temple there are replicas of all their bedrooms (Takeru and Hikari also have theirs for whenever they feel like staying) and the Odaiba Elementary School's computer lab that serves as their usual entry to the Digital World. Other Digimon and the White Hats can easily communicate with them through it.
  • Daisuke defeated Ken and then insisted more than anyone else in becoming closer to him after he proved he was reforming. Nanoha and Fate have noticed certain similarities to themselves, as Nanoha also needed to defeat Fate before the latter turned to her side. Also, Fate can relate to Ken's struggle to replace his dead older sibling.
  • They dedicate some of their free time to club activities at the Academy. Daisuke and Ken are in the soccer club (Daisuke being all raring to go since Taichi-senpai is the captain there), Iori joined the kendo club and Miyako is in the computer club.
    • Daisuke has developed a rivalry with the girls' team headed by Nao and Rin. It all started when the teams' schedules for using the field clashed and Daisuke wanted to decide it through a game. The girls won and Daisuke has been annoyed at that ever since, antagonizing Rin whenever they see each other, while Nao tries to pacify them. Ken thinks it doesn't really matter and is far friendlier with the girls.
  • They have become friends with Ash Ketchum in spite of their followers being rivals, though it doesn't stop them from competing in a light-hearted manner at times.
    • One time they got ambushed by Team Rocket, who tried to steal V-mon for their boss. He was eventually freed, evolved to XV-mon and sent the team blasting off again with his X-Laser but Daisuke and co. weren't exactly happy about the whole thing, and they wonder if they'll have to worry about criminals wanting to steal their Digimon. Also they find Jessie and James a bit too similar to Arukenimon and Mummymon.
    • Their fear was confirmed by the presence of the likes of Ghetsis and Pokemon Hunter J. They find it unforgivable that they'd use mons as tools to achieve their selfish goals, be it world domination or wealth. Ghetsis and J, however, have looked into Digimon and find that they may be more difficult to handle than Pokemon, so they'll remain focused on the former for now.
  • Given their actions during the Digimon world crisis, they have not only the support of a lot of deities from the countries they protected, but they have a permanent spot in Santa Claus' nice list given the whole thing took place during Christmastime, and if it weren't for their intervention Christmas might have been ruined in many parts of the world.
  • Although their adult lives have been controversial for seemingly random career paths that don't appear to match with their characters, the Cutie Mark Crusaders admire and support them for successfully pursuing their dream jobs. The Digidestined also became friends with the Mane Cast by association, with each member having their own best friend within that group.
  • Daisuke:
    • Daisuke has been made aware that he used to be the one who the title Hopeless Suitor referred to after his ascension. He prefers his position with his friends and doesn't like it when people remind him how he didn't get Hikari to like him. Though that doesn't stop Miyako from taunting him about it sometimes.
    • Determined to become stronger so he won't disappoint Taichi again, he gained the sympathy of Arokh and Rynn, who decided to become mentors to him and V-mon, and hope they'll improve their dragon-and-rider dynamic for future battles.
    • Daisuke sometimes spends time at the House of Food learning to be the best ramen cook, since that's his dream job. Naruto, a fan of ramen, thinks that's a great dream and has offered to taste-test Daisuke's cooking, so the two have a business partnership of sorts.
    • Out of the Mane Cast Daisuke gets along best with Rainbow Dash, as they're both unwaveringly loyal to their friends and yet competitive and boisterous. They might butt heads sometimes due to that second quality (like one time Daisuke argued Lighdramon was faster than Rainbow Dash), but in they end they respect each other's abilities.
    • He was in charge of New York during the Digimon world crisis, which got him the gratitude and friendship of the personification of America himself. Given they're both excitable and kinda dim leaders, they get along quite well. The Avengers are also kicking themselves wondering what the hell they were doing while the Digimon invasion was happening, but they're glad Daisuke was around.
  • Ken:
    • Originally Ken was to ascend for And You Thought It Was a Game, but plans changed and he ascended with his friends instead. His trope was handed over to David Lightman, a teen hacker who thought he was playing computer games and instead nearly started a nuclear world war, which he managed to avert. In his brief stint as his High Priest, Ken became acquainted with David's regrets over the event and determination to help to avoid similar situations in the Pantheon. Ken fully relates to his feelings and respects him.
    • Ken's brilliant older brother Osamu died in a car accident, which Ken believes is his fault because he wished for it out of jealousy. So he strove to be like Osamu to please his parents. As it happens, Switch of the Sket-Dan has an almost identical backstory. Eventually both were able to overcome these issues with the support of their friends. Obviously they have a lot to talk about.
    • Ken and Judai have become very good friends since both of them ended up becoming Evil Overlords through some bad decisions. It was a rather unfortunate coincidence but it has helped them bond together. Other people who regret their actions (everyone at the Ministry of Atonement, for example) have also given Ken their support.
      • In addition, Koichi Kimura is probably the Digidestined Ken has most in common with as Koichi also had a stint at being evil before atoning. Koichi would like it if the darkness-fearing Ken could learn that not all that's dark is evil.
    • With Ken's Crest being that of Kindness, he attracted the attention of another representative of that virtue: Fluttershy. One troll (confirmed to be an Itazura Griefer) told her of the time he literally kicked a puppy, so his first encounter with her… wasn't pretty. But after explaining, the pegasus also showed her very forgiving nature, sympathized with Ken's long and painful path to kindness, and knows that he's certainly learned his lesson.
    • He protected ancient Mayan ruins in Mexico during the world crisis, and Speedy Gonzalez is thus grateful to him for protecting his country's heritage. Surprisingly, so is the notorious hacker Sombra, who cuts the Digidestined some slack as a sort of thanks.
    • Wants to be a police inspector, presumably out of a desire to do justice by others after spending so much time being evil as the Kaiser. He spends time at the House of Justice learning about it and has taken a particular shine to Ryotaro Dojima, who returns the sentiment even if he fears that Ken's desire to atone might make him too obsessive about certain cases like Ryotaro was. He'll do his best to make the boy aware of the risks.
    • Whenever Ken and Wormmon train at the House of Insects they tend to run into Sig, who likes to follow them around to observe Wormmon or Stingmon battling against other insects, which always makes him go fanboy mode in his stoic way. Ken was weirded out by the boy at first, though he was never rude and eventually got used to Sig, even developing an odd kind of friendship.
  • Miyako:
    • Created a peculiar friendship with the Angry Birds when they confused Hawkmon for one of their own and drafted him into helping protect their eggs. Despite everything, Miyako and Hawkmon roll with it and think of it as practice for future battles. They've also garnered the interest of Anivia, who serves as something of a mentor to them.
    • She helped out in Russia during the world crisis, for which she's earned the friendship of Zangief and Zarya, who thought it was amusing yet clever how she dealt with the language barrier by using Russian food names as signals. Since Miyako was denied real Russian food when she went there, the two Russians were happy to throw on a feast for her and her friends, much to her delight.
    • Miyako's hyper personality means she gets along well with the similarly-tempered Pinkie Pie. With her skill at using music programs, Miyako's always finding new ways of livening up Pinkie's parties.
    • Despite her tech-savvy, Miyako's real dream is to be a Yamato Nadeshiko and a housewife. The White Hats are trying to encourage her to still apply her talent by working from home, as they really don't want to lose her abilities. Miyako thinks that wouldn't be a bad idea, but in the meanwhile she's looking up to Hinata Hyuuga as her role model after hearing of how devoted to her family she is. Hinata thinks it best to advise Miyako not to become something she's not.
    • Gets along well with Fuuka and Ami due to being the computer experts in their respective teams. It's a bit ironic as Fuuka and Ami are shy while Miyako is the very opposite, but the two blue-haired girls always feel energized when they're around the Digidestined.
  • Iori:
    • He appreciates the company of Mr. Miyagi, as the old karate teacher reminds him of his grandfather. Sure, grandpa was goofier, but he and Miyagi have the same penchant for proverbial wisdom. In his visits to Miyagi, Iori's also become friends with his pupil Daniel, and the two may be seen training together sometimes.
    • Iori relates the most to Applejack out of the Mane Cast, as both of them have a strong sense of honor and will not budge on their beliefs easily. On the other hand, both of them have also had to learn that it's necessary to be flexible at times for the greater good. They've decided to tell each other the lessons they learn on that front to see if they can learn anything new from each other.
    • During the world crisis he went to the Land Downunder to stop some water-dwelling Digimon from rampaging. As the Great Coral Reef was at risk during the battle and Iori did his best to preserve it, Steve Irwin is forever grateful that he protected such an important habitat for Australian sea life.
    • Iori wants to be a defense attorney, which likely has some relation to how his father was a police officer killed in the line of duty. After learning of the boy's history, Sae Niijima has expressed interest in mentoring him, as she herself is a defense attorney whose father died in the same circumstances, which had been a sore spot for her for a long time.
    • As a practitioner of Kendo, he eventually found a sparring partner in Suguha.

    Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass 
David Lizewski, God of Loser Protagonists who Relate to the Audience (Kick-Ass, Dave)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lizewski_dave_4622.jpg
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: His mask
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Lame Superhero, Overcoming said lameness and Goofy super heroes Admiring superheroes so much that wanted to become one, Always trying to protect the innocent, Vigilante Men, Adorkable, Dual Wielding, Nerd Action Hero, high pain resistance as a result of Nerve Damage
  • Domains: Heroism, Vigilantism, Pain
  • Allies: Jimmy Hopkins, Asuka Kazama, Naruto Uzumaki, Goku, Garrus Vakarian
  • Fanboy towards: Every Superhero, Nicolas Cage
  • Uneasy Relationship: Frank Castle/The Punisher,
  • Enemies: Johan Liebert, Joker, A majority of the house of Villains and Hatred
  • He first made his ascension and stormed the house of villains and got his ass kicked. Luckily he were rescued before they were killed. After being rescue, he was immediately put through rigorous training considering how fast they were curb stomped it was rather embarrassing and painful to watch. There he befriended Kenichi. After his training, he became a force to be reckoned with. Dave went from getting their asses kicked by mooks to being The Ace of his heroic faction albeit a goofy one.
    • Despite gaining additional success with a decent movie franchise, Dave went into some hard times. His temple was in such a disrepair that he was subsequently kicked out of the Pantheon. He tried his hardest to advocate his return, but no one would listen. That is until he met Al Bundy. He offered to trade his old temple while he got a new one. Left with no other option, he accepted. Thus Kick-Ass made his return to the Pantheon.
    • Kick-Ass actually comes from a long list of Loser Protagonists created by Mark Millar in a way to relate to he audience. His reputation has mixed reations, but there is no question that Kick-Ass is his most well-known universe.
  • He's trying to see if he can be made an honorary member of the Superhero Division in order to cement his hero status and to spend time with their favorite heroes as well.
  • Ever since Kick-Ass discovered Big Daddy's avatar was a deity, has become a fan of Nicolas Cage. He also has become closer to Scarlet Witch, who finds Dave similar to her brother.
  • While he is not the type of superhero with powers (or the world that has them), he does have dulled pain receptors, making him resistant to feeling pain. That and his ability to carry things through no matter how dangerous they are makes him one of the most determined deities in the Pantheon. Naruto himself acknowledges that fact.
  • Dave initially started his training in order to better defend himself from bullies. That has earned him the respect of Jimmy Hopkins who offered to give him some combat training. The same can be said of Asuka. While she was wary of working with someone who looked like a pervert, her attitude changed when he managed to get a girlfriend.
  • There is one hero he felt was all too familiar with: Frank Castle. Once upon a time, he teamed up with a girl named Mindy Mc-Cready, someone who was far more vicious with criminals than he ever hoped to be. Nevertheless, he decided to tag along with the man to see how he operates. While he wished he could follow the superhero mantra of Thou Shall Not Kill, he knows that is not something he can keep up with. With that said, he hopes he can at least convince the Punisher to try better options
  • Received an assault rifle as well as some training courtesy of Garrus. He was impressed with the boy's desire to become a vigilante when he has had little or no training of the sort. He was even more impressed when he pressed on even when the city banned them. Sure Dave isn't nearly as good in combat as even the average superhero, but his grit may help him become a great vigilante.
  • There is only a couple of villains he vehemently hates in the Pantheon. One of which is Johan Liebert, an affair that turned personal. There was a time when Dave worked alongside a boy named Chris Genovese, one who turned out to be the son of a mob boss. It turns out Johan played a hand in the affair in the hopes of dashing the hopes of that world. Chris even became a follower in his increasingly brutal acts of cruelty. For that, Dave has constantly sought Johnan out, and gets his ass kicked in the process.
    • The other is the Joker, though for more noble reasons. He hopes to find a way to keep the Joker locked up for good. He knows Batman would never allow him to kill the Monster Clown, but Dave at least hopes he can find another way to bring the Clown Prince of Crime's killing spree to an end.

  • Conflicting Opinion: He-Man, Flynn, Kazuto "Kirito" Kirigaya, Makoto Naegi, Shinji Ikari
  • Pities: Bertolt and Annie
  • Eren Yeager used to be a part of the House of Hatred for so long due to his massive hatred against the Titans. However as time goes on, he was relieved from that said house due to recent developments in his own homeworld. As such, the Court of the Gods decided to give him a new trope with Our Hero Is Dead since he was seemingly killed after he was devoured by a Titan during his first mission. However, he managed to burst out and killed said Titan from inside after he managed to transform into his Rogue Titan form.
  • Gets along well with Asura, considering the two have a few similarities in losing a loved member of a family, being easily angered which is hardly a good option for an offender and being able to increase in size and power.
  • Due to a misunderstanding, he took Colossi for a different branch of Titans. Since then, a one-sided hatred began again.
  • In an alternate universe, Eren goes to junior high school, likes to eat cheese hamburger steaks, and gets along with his universe's gods. In a hilarious note, both Annie and Mikasa fell for him. As usual, Eren does not notice it, but this makes him questioned his adversity towards the blonde girl.
    • He also formed a band with his friends, called "Attackers". The gods at the House of Music noticed, and invited him to join in jam sessions.
  • Some gods have found that he sounds similar to Hyodo Issei. It doesn't help that some of Issei's haremettes kind of reminds Eren of the people of his own universe, in particular Rias, who is similar to a voice inside his head, namely the voice of Frieda Reiss, and Xenovia, who is similar to Annie.
    • During his training years, Eren accidentally found an erotic book under his bed. Some gods speculated that Issei sent it to him. After seeing his reaction of the said book, the Sekiryuutei was very much amused, and tried to offer him advices about his relationship with girls, especially Mikasa (and after knowing the above matter, to Annie as well). As of late, Eren's response was to consider it after his war with Titans finally finished.
  • He has found a strange liking to Zeus and even joined him in a few battles against larger opponents. Though they clearly are different from each other in far too many ways to count, they have that one thing that binds them together enough for teamwork to be possible: Their unfathomable hatred for Titans. Of course, Eren is aware that Zeus might just betray him at any moment due to his Titan form, but he is willing to take the chance.
  • When this came outnote , Eren just got himself another thing to hate. Whether or not it's on the ones who brought it up or the Princess herself is unclear.
  • Due to his powers as a Coordinate, deities that used to trounce him around regard him with a little more caution now that he can casually send Titans at them.
    • Despite that, or perhaps because of it, however, there's been an influx of less-than-savory individuals spotted around the House. They tend to carry out a bound and gagged Eren out of here roughly twice a week.
  • Considers Gamagoori's ascension to be a relief, ever since this happened. It possibly helps that he seems to sound like Keith Shadis, his old training instructor.
  • Shu has become friends with Eren due to having similar voices and ideals for their worldthough he does find Eren braver than he is. Shu even mentioned to Eren a girl (Hare Menjou) who died during his conflict against GHQ, reminding Eren of Annie. At one point during a skirmish battle, Shu used Eren's void that has the ability to become a Titan himself to tun the tide.
  • For some reason, he sometimes hears a bit of Ymir, another former ally and Titan Shifter, in Hatsune Miku. He doesn't understand why, as the two don't seem to have anything in common.
  • Upon hearing that a young blonde strategist had entered the Pantheon, he ran all the way to the House of Power, believing Armin Arlert had been ascended. Much to his disappointment, the new deity wasn't his friend, but some lone Bishōnen called Kurapika. The Kurta did sympathize with his plight, however (after all, he also held a vendetta against the murderers of his family, and he hadn't seen his friends in a long time, either). They're not particularly close, mainly due to Kurapika's aloofness and not-sharing Eren's Blood Knight tendencies, but they're in good terms.
  • He despises Monstro the Whale and sees him as no better than the Titans he fights against. Thus, Eren has vowed to come after the whale once the Titans are gone.
    • This has mellowed down over the years as Eren learns of the true nature of where Titans came from and how they work. While he still despises Monstro for devouring people, the reason for this is more that he's devouring people for no apparent reason.
  • His attack on Marley after the Time Skip in his homeworld horrified many of his allies and friends as he killed many civilians, including children, in the process. When his allies confront him for this act, they were shocked to find that the Eren they once knew has changed. Because of this, he's no longer on speaking terms with them.
    • On the other hand, he came to sympathise Bertolt and Annie due to him knowing how Marley and Reiner manipulated them into doing these such acts and even compared his actions to theirs. Regardless however, he still view them as enemies, not because of them destroying his home, but because they're just on the other side of the conflict.
  • He is not a potato.

  • Opposed to:
  • Meet the Classical Literature Club, four students from Kamiyama High School who mostly spend their time solving mundane mysteries, usually because of the extreme curiosity of their president. For the longest time, Eru Chitanda and Houtarou Oreki had their respective own temples but felt sad that their two closest friends Satoshi Fukube and Mayaka Ibara were missing and decided to invite them along. With that, both Oreki and Chitanda abandoned their old temples and opened one for the whole Classical Literature Club, which made their friends really happy and surprised, especially when it comes from Oreki of all people.
  • The Classical Literature Club in its current incarnation formed when Houtarou Oreki, the younger brother of former club member Tomoe Oreki, was "convinced" by his sister to join the club to keep it from getting shut down, despite his energy-conservation lifestyle making him reluctant to do so. There, in the clubroom, he met the forever curious Eru Chitanda and, with the help of his best friend and "database", Satoshi Fukube, solved the mystery of how Chitanda got locked in the room even though she didn't have a keynote , the first of many mysteries to come. They ended up inadvertently gaining their fourth member, Mayaka Ibara, when they helped her solve the mystery of why a certain library book was getting checked out by multiple different girls and getting returned by the end of the day (long before anyone could have time to read it...) every Fridaynote .
  • Exclusive to the club in its entirety:
    • They tend to get along well with various detectives in the Pantheon. Although they're by no means professionals, it's not uncommon for some high school deities, for one reason or another, to come to them with a case they'd like to have solved, or just to hear their theories, though Oreki is much more cautious of manipulation since the incident with Irisu. Some detectives have found listening in on their conversations about mysteries to be a good source of inspiration when stumped on a difficult case. Chitanda especially enjoys having a great many people to take her curiosities to when necessary, though Oreki is still by far her preferred sleuthnote . Satoshi sometimes gets jealous of other detectives' natural investigative skills, but he tries not to let others see that side of him.
      • Sherlock Holmes especially enjoys their company, as he sees just a little bit of himself in each of them (except for Mayaka, who he also appreciates as another "conductor of light", not unlike his dear Watson). He enjoys watching how Chitanda's curiosity and heightened senses, Satoshi's wide knowledge in minutiae, Mayaka's relatable and straightforward observations, and, of course, Oreki's reasoning allows them to solve the little mysteries hidden in the ordinary. Oreki also reminds Holmes of his older brother, the similarly Brilliant, but Lazy Mycroft, and Holmes, in turn, reminds Oreki of his older sister, the similarly brilliant and energetic Tomoe. Satoshi is a Sherlockian (though Holmes chafes at the idea that his stories are meant for "beginners"), and Chitanda once cosplayed in a Sherlock Holmes costume, which Holmes was amused by.
      • The equally great detective Hercule Poirot was intrigued that the Classics Club had to deal with a case that was similar to one of his most famous cases, The ABC Murders, and impressed at the way that Oreki managed to solve the case. He was also flattered that Mayaka chose to cosplay as him. The costume was very well-made, and he was quite pleased at the show of recognition.
      • Every so often, the club will attempt to solve a more serious case than they're used to. While they try to avoid getting involved in violent crimes, they have aided in investigations for some non-violent crimes, such as theft or missing objects. Their greatest achievement in this area is when they managed to reason out the actual location of Carmen Sandiego herself (though the authorities still failed to actually catch her, and she quite enjoyed the challenge). They even caught the attention of the infamous Professor Moriarty and Arsène Lupin, the former of which would normally not be a very good thing, but the way they did it was by having Satoshi and Oreki cosplay as the criminal mastermind and gentleman thief, respectively, which they both agreed was quite entertaining. Since then, the two have taken a liking to them, and have even made something of a game out of carrying out subtle crimes while Chitanda's nearby simply to try to stump them.
    • The club often enthusiastically (with the exception of Oreki, who 98% of the time has to be prodded by Chitanda to even show upnote ) participates in group activities with or against other clubs and groups during festivals and celebrations. These span from detective competitions pitting them against other mystery solving groups like Mystery Incorporated and/or the Investigation Team, poetry recitals with the Doki Doki Literature Club (who they sometimes like to spend time reading and writing with, on the rare occasion they actually do that), or other more generalized contests going up against groups like the School Life Club, the SOS Brigade, the Xiaolin Dragons, and the Paranatural Activity Club. They don't win these contests very often (although they'd probably win more of the detective competitions at least if they could just get Oreki to put some effort into them).
      • Speaking of writing, Shizuku Tsukishima once joined the club, which caused some trouble when the imbalance in their members caused friction with their trope, threatening to evict them (or at least Satoshi and Mayaka) from the Pantheon. Luckily, this was averted when Shizuku realized that despite being called the "Classical Literature Club", they don't actually spend much time practicing or discussing writing or literature, and she decided to quit. She still enjoys hanging out with them for inspiration, though.
      • The club's members (even Oreki, though he's obviously not as enthusiastic about it) are big fans of the music of Houkago Tea Time. They sometimes like to spend time in their club room to listen to their music or just hang out. Chitanda and Ritsu in particular have bonded over the fact that they're both the president of their respective clubs, even though Chitanda takes her responsibilities far more seriously. What, you thought there was some other reason?
    • The relationships between Oreki and Chitanda, as well as Satoshi and Mayaka, has been a source of great fascination from the House of Love. There are still bets going on over when (very, very few deities have had the nerve to suggest "if") each couple will actually get together. A group of these bettors' wallets have gotten a bit heavier since Satoshi and Mayaka got together in second year. New bets have emerged on whether they're going to stay that way, though.
  • Exclusive to Houtarou Oreki:
    • The "master detective"note  of the Classical Literature Club may be famous for being Brilliant, but Lazy, but he doesn't really consider himself lazy (or brilliant, but that's another story). He just sticks to his motto, "If I don't have to do it, I won't. If I have to do it, I'll make it quick." which has quickly become a popular slogan for all Brilliant, but Lazy deities (and some not-so-brilliant ones). As such, he gets along well with other Brilliant, but Lazy deities like himself. He once considered setting up an "Energy Saving" club, where members could meet and discuss the best ways to avoid work and save energy. He realized pretty quickly that the best way to save energy would be to not have a club. He becomes immensely annoyed whenever he hears about Chin Chin. He has nothing really against the person himself, but his constant use of seemingly random things with no explanation never fail to get Chitanda curious, which means more work for him.
      • A secret that Oreki rarely, if ever, tells anyone is that the reason for his energy conserving philosophy is because when he was in Elementary School, his sense of altruism was taken advantage of by another student and a teacher to make him do their chores for them. When he realized what they were doing, he decided that the way the world works is that the smartest people are the people willing to force others to do the things they don't want to, and dumbest people are the people willing to do those things for smart people. Since then, he has an aversion to those who take advantage of philanthropy this way, such as Homer Simpson.
      • Shikamaru, Garfield, Konata, Yoh, Caitlin, and Keima can often be found lazing around with Oreki whenever Chitanda's not around. The former four all stay as far away as possible whenever she shows up, because they don't wanna risk getting affected by whatever it is that she does to Oreki. Caitlin and Keima can handle it, though, as long as they don't wake her up or interrupt him playing his games, respectively.
      • Once, when Oreki got sick and had to go to the hospital, he became intrigued upon encountering Dr. House, another lazy genius who uses his reasoning and knowledge to solve difficult mysteries with the help of a group of people who are available to bounce ideas off of. Unfortunately, while they get along okay (with only some minor Snark-to-Snark Combat), the occasions that Oreki has spent time with the doctor have caused Oreki to put up a barrier between Chitanda and himself, as Oreki has a slight dread that he might one day grow up to be as obsessed with solving problems as House is, and that spending too much time with Chitanda might be expediting that.
      • Especially sympathizes with Kyon and Daria. Chitanda may cause him to waste tons of energy, but Haruhi Suzumiya is, in his own words, "a rose-colored hole from which no energy escapes". As for Daria, well, just the thought of being around people like Beavis and Butthead, even if only for a brief time, makes him exhausted.
    • Although he continues to insist that he's completely ordinary, Oreki doesn't mind passing time with other intelligent deities, such as Patrick Jane, Spock, Lisa Simpson, and Yoh Asakura, so long as it doesn't take up too much energy. He doesn't mind socializing, after all, despite what many (not completely inaccurately, either) think. He's just not particularly good at it.
      • Once bonded with C-3PO over the fact that they're constantly being dragged to places they don't want to be by a more enthusiastic companion (although the dragging is more figurative in 3PO's case, since R2D2 lacks arms).
    • As part of his attempts to prove that he's as normal as they come, and that his theories being correct so often is just him being lucky, he sometimes plays a game with Chitanda where he tries to develop an insane, but possible, theory to explain some completely random circumstances that Chitanda gives him to prove that, "Theory and hot patches stick to anything."note  Inevitably, though, no matter how crazy or bizarre the theory he comes up with, it always somehow manages to be completely true. Some deities introduced him to Killia, feeling their unwillingness to admit their good qualities is comparable.
      • For example, when playing the game, he was once asked to explain some weird behavior involving Conan Edogawa. From what little he knew of the kid, he came up with a theory he considered so ridiculous and absurd, that there was, in his mind, absolutely no way that it could be true... It was that day that Oreki and Chitanda accidentally joined the ranks of the few people aware that Conan Edogawa and Shinichi Kudo are the same person. Shinichi doesn't really mind that they know, though, as it lets him add another "detective" he respects to his list of worthy allies in his fight against the Black Organization. Oreki has never been happier.
      • The only exception that has ever been found to this is an instance when Oreki tried to come up with a theory while in the presence of Joss Whedon. As Oreki's theory-making skills clashed with Whedon's natural theory negation ability, the conflict caused the entire Pantheon to erupt into spontaneous chaos for no discernible reason. Oreki and Whedon have since been banned from being in the same place at the same time without rigid supervision.
  • Exclusive to Eru Chitanda:
    • The president of the Classical Literature Club is legendary (for better or worse) for being insatiably curious about everything, and her glowing eyes and (in)famous catch-phrase, "Watashi, ki ni narimasu!"Translation  is often reacted to with some combination of Cuteness Proximity, bewilderment, irritation, and/or just dread. Naturally, she enjoys spending time with other deities who share this quality, such as Curious George, and those who seek the truth above all, such as Lanaya the Templar Assassin. Ironically, her constant curiosity makes it so she may be one of the few deities in the Pantheon who understands Gon Freecss' strange (some might even say... curious) morality.
      • She may not always seem it, but Chitanda is actually very intelligent, being a top student (even if she insists it's only because she's good at taking tests) and having an incredibly sharp memory and sensesnote . She appreciates learning new things whenever she can, so she's probably one of the few people in the Pantheon who legitimately enjoys having things be "ruined" by Adam Conover. This often causes a problem whenever she spends time with Mako, because while her logic is very obviously nonsense, Mako is an expert at convincing people that her conclusions are reasonable in spite of this, and Chitanda is no exception to that rule. Any time socializing with Mako almost inevitably leaves Chitanda filled with absolutely ridiculous ideas about how certain things work, which the rest of the club then have to dispel.
      • She regards Fi as being a very nice being, as she's always willing to provide answers to her questions, to a degree of precision that goes beyond even Chitanda's standards.
      • As a consequence of her endless inquisitiveness, Chitanda has a liking for enigmas and riddles, although she's not usually very good at figuring them out. Because of this, she likes spending time solving puzzles with Professor Layton. On the other hand, the Riddler often feels annoyed at her presence, as she's more inclined to ask people questions than she is to answer them.
    • As a fellow high school girl from a very wealthy family, Chitanda very quickly grew attached to Chiyo Mihami during an investigation into her parentage. She thinks the young child prodigy's unique intellect is very reminiscent of Oreki (even if he denies it) and often likes to cook with her and play penguins... dressed as penguins. Needless to say, the sight of Chitanda in a penguin costume is very awkward for Oreki, though not for the reason you might think.
    • Oreki's not the only one who has a robot companion. Chitanda finds it quite impressive that Probius was able to develop some degree of sentience and become more curious than other machines of its kind.
    • Chitanda's curiosity was piqued when she stopped at the Rabbit House café and saw a bunch of dishes with strange and funny names. She ended up ordering a bunch of them before meeting the person who gave them those weird names, Chiya Ujimatsu. They became friends when Chitanda mentioned a time when she got drunk on alcohol-filled chocolates, and Chiya reminisced that her friends had gotten into the same situation once, toonote .
    • Being an only child, Chitanda has a slightly romanticized view of what it would be like to have a sibling. She's always wanted one; either an older sister she could look up to, or a younger brother she could look out for. While an experience forced her to reexamine this idea and she has since taken a more sensible attitude, she still prefers to see siblings be nice to each other, and as such, she admires the relationships of Kazumi Amano, Switzerland, and Androids 17 and 18. On the other hand, she tends to feel uncomfortable whenever she sees siblings like Cain and Abel, Lina and Rylai, and Arthur and D.W. Read not acting as nice to each other.
      • Her childish behavior and demeanor often leave some deities wondering if there might be something wrong with her (though none have yet had the gall to actually ask her about it, at least not in front of her club mates), and so it should come as little surprise that she enjoys spending time with children. When she visited the House of Children, she immediately took a liking to one Yotsuba Koiwai, a young girl almost as curious as she was. In time, Yotsuba introduced her to the young Niko, and Chitanda was fascinated with Niko's puzzling cat-like appearance. Together, they like to explore the Pantheon, with Chitanda acting as a surrogate older sister, a position she finds much more challenging than she ever expected, but also much more fulfilling. Oreki's had to consider that her idea of siblings may not be entirely withered flowers after all...
  • Exclusive to Satoshi Fukube:
    • The database of the Classical Literature Club is, in many ways, the virtual opposite of his best friend Oreki, with a Photographic Memory to boot. As suggested by his nickname, Satoshi is incredibly knowledgeable in all sorts of random and useless trivia, which comes in handy when it comes to solving difficult and random mysteries the likes of which Chitanda brings to the table. He tends to avoid applying this himself, and is more inclined to lend his services to Oreki, as, "A database cannot draw conclusions." As such, he spends a lot of his time in the House of Knowledge when he's not with the rest of the club, especially Analysis & Records, where he spends time Wikipe-tan, Trope-tan, and Chuck Bartowski.
    • While he may seem to be an energetic, witty, and perhaps slightly feminine boy, those who know him well realize that this is an act. When he was younger, Satoshi was a very obsessive person who cared too much about winning. When he realized these flaws in his personality, he made an effort to conceal them behind a more easygoing personality, although to this day, he still holds a slightly bitter resentment towards Houtarou Oreki for being a better detective than himself. For this reason, no matter how tempted he may be, he has resolved to never set foot in the House of Infatuation & Obsession, and he has an immense dislike of people who share these qualities and don't put any effort into hiding them like he does.
      • Although this did get him some friends who are also Stepford Smilers like him—Adrien Agreste, Naruto Uzumaki, and Sayaka Maizono, for instance—and enjoys hanging out with Tucker Foley, Krillin, and Ron Weasley, who all know what it's like to be jealous of a more "special" friend. Adrien in particular can't help but notice that Satoshi's fabricated personality is comparable to his own as Cat Noir. The anonymity that comes with being a superhero allows him to escape his restrictive life and act as his true self, so it's somewhat disconcerting to find a similar personality being used as a form of self-control.
      • His insecurities are the reason he's been reluctant to reciprocate Mayaka's feelings for him, as he's afraid that he might end up hurting Ibara. He hasn't stepped foot in the House of Love ever since the "Valentine's Day Incident" where he secretly smashed Ibara's Valentine chocolate in an effort to avoid having to accept it. Even them getting together in second year hasn't changed this, as some deities are still bitter about it.
      • His eager personality may not be entirely real, but it has drawn some deities with genuinely fervent personalities to him, like Astolfo, and he enjoys hanging out with them, too.
  • Exclusive to Mayaka Ibara:
    • The... er... other member of the Classical Literal Club is a mostly ordinary girl. Despite her overall lack of impressive investigative abilities and frequent need to question Oreki to understand his methods and reasoning, Ibara has a strong sense of justice and discipline, which can help her make simple considerations that others might overlooknote . Although Dr. Watson likes all four members of the Classical Literature Club well enough, he finds Ibara to be the most relatable of them.
      • Outside of Oreki, who she already has a somewhat volatile—but ultimately friendly—relationship with, she can find it very difficult to get along with people that are both intelligent and lethargic like he is. Of course, she won't get violent or anything, but she'll have no problem showing what a Little Miss Snarker she can be.
    • It would be difficult to talk about Ibara without mentioning how she's been hopelessly in love with Satoshi since Middle School. As mentioned above, the House of Love is very engaged (ha ha ha) by this, and suffice it to say that their reaction when they learned of the Valentine's Day Incident was... less than pleasant. It took Hinata to calm everyone down and remind them of what Ibara already knew: that some people just need time to work through their issues before they can be ready to take that step. She was right.
      • Marinette can sympathize with being hopelessly in love with someone, and admires that she was able to be direct with Satoshi, as she's unable to conjure up the nerve to tell her own crush. On the rare occasions that Mayaka has talked to Adrien, she's gotten the impression that he might be kind of similar to Satoshi. She's agreed to help out with any schemes to help Marinette out, but she feels like there might be sides to Adrien that Marinette will have to learn to accept before they can be together.
    • Ibara is a huge Otaku when it comes to anime and manga and takes the art form very seriously, so she has a great respect for Osamu Tezuka. She'd love to meet him, but approaching the father of modern anime would be an event she equated to being like meeting Haruna Anjou and Muneyoshi Kugayama, the mangakas of her favorite manga, A Corpse by Evening, so she has yet to gather the courage to do so. She soon joined an anime and manga club in the Pantheon, and they like her far more than the one back home did (at least, she hopes they do...), especially Peni Parker and Komaru Naegi, who are her current best friends outside of the Classics Club. She also enjoys cosplaying as some of her favorite characters on special occasions.
      • Not only is she a fan of anime and manga, but she's a gifted manga artist (though not nearly as good as she'd like to be). She'd love to make her own manga one day, but she believes she lacks the writing skills to make it work. She likes the work of Mashiro Moritaka and Akito Takagi, and has asked them for some pointers. Watson once made the suggestion that she record the Classics Club's mysteries like he does for Holmes and turn that into a manga, an idea she's giving some thought to. It is advised that one not, under any circumstances, point out the irony of her being a member of the Classical Literature Club and being a poor writer.

    Laurie Strode 
Laurie Strode, Goddess of Final Girls (Cynthia Myers, Angel Myers, A Determined Survivor)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/laurie_strode.jpg
Her older self 
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A kitchen knife
  • Theme Song: "Laurie's Theme"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: The final survivor of her franchise, Doom Magnet, Action Survivor who eventually became an Action Girl, Broken Bird, Plucky Girl, have their killer related to them, Screaming Woman, won't hesitate to protect those she loves, movie franchises that declare discontinuity like crazy
  • Domains: Survival, Slasher, Murder
  • Heralds: Rachel Lloyd, Jamie Lloyd, Sarah Moyer
  • High Priestess: Suzy Bannion
  • Followers: Ginny Field, Nancy Thompson, Lana Winters
  • Allies: Sidney Prescott (in a Vitriolic Best Buds way), Buffy Summers, Luke Skywalker, The Investigation Team, Jack Skellington, House of Children, Ellen Ripley, Nurse Ratchet, Rick Deckard, Tree Gelbman, Ash Williams, The Green Flu Survivors(especially Bill)
  • Enemies: Any serial killer, including Michael Myers, Evan McMillan, Hannibal Lecter, Jack the Ripper, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Johan Liebert, Patrick Bateman, etc., Mad King Thorn, Jack O'Lantern
  • Opposed to: Darth Vader
  • Pities: Marion Crane
  • Laurie Strode was an average, responsible high schooler who thought she'd spend an uneventful Halloween night as a babysitter. Unbeknownst to her, there was a real boogeyman on the loose in her small town: Michael Myers, a masked, knife-totting, seemingly inhuman killer. Michael spent that Halloween night killing Laurie's friends and nearly killed her last, but she managed to turn the tables on him. However, when Laurie thought she got him, his body disappeared. She'd be haunted by him for the rest of her life.
  • Laurie's tale codified a number of tropes for the horror genre, among which is Final Girl, the last female survivor of a killing spree, a trope of which Laurie is the definitive example. For that reason she was chosen to represent the archetype in the Pantheon, where her battle against Michael Myers continues.
  • Laurie and Sidney at first had a mildly uneasy working relationship with each other. This is mainly due to the fact that Sidney openly snarked about Laurie during the time the former was mortal. However, they later bonded over their share experiences and discover they are much more similar than first thought. Now Sidney sees Laurie as more of a Cool Big Sis and they have a lot of allies and enemies in common. And Laurie is thankful to Sidney for modernizing the horror genre.
    • Ever since their ascension, the two of them have been consulting various therapists in the Pantheon in order to get over their trauma and to help their followers move on with their lives after the encounters with their serial killers. Marion is also an honorable member of the group despite not surviving her encounter with Norman. Laurie and Sidney say Marion is like a mother to them.
    • Because of their experience, the two of them are leading a group that took a stand against any and all serial killers in the Pantheon. This is especially intense with killers that got away with their crime like Hannibal Lecter and Jack the Ripper.
    • A third slasher protagonist, Tree Gelbman, just had to join with Laurie and Sid. Laurie admires her courage and Character Development, while also pitying how Tree died over and over again (Laurie said she in a way relates, as she somehow recalls dying once, but she's unsure on whether it actually happened).
  • Paid Buffy Summers's temple a visit as she heard that she has encountered and survived much more horrific creatures than her and actually scares them.
  • Recently struck a friendship with Luke much to the surprise of everyone due to how their mortal enemies were revealed to be related to them. Although considering Halloween canon is a mess, it's dubious how much this applies to Laurie.
  • As she suffered through a series of murders while living in a sleepy small town, Laurie gets along well with the Investigation Team, who went through much the same thing. Given Michael's ambiguously magical nature, they wonder if he has something to do with the Midnight Channel.
  • Naturally Laurie feels kind of sour about Halloween as a holiday, considering Michael always strikes on that date, including in the Pantheon. Hearing about this, Jack Skellington decided to find some time every Halloween to accompany her and show her how much joy the holiday still brings, hoping that she'll remember the feeling. And since he's powerful, he can protect her from Michael, too. Laurie admits that his enthusiasm is infectious, at least. Conversely, she's absolutely not a fan of the evil Halloween deities Mad King Thorn and Jack O'Lantern.
  • Seeing that she's proven herself a competent babysitter who'll protect her charges from harm, she's sometimes called upon to babysit child deities, especially on Halloween. Presumably this is so arranged to take her mind off Michael and allow the other deities to deal with him. She's good with kids and it gives her something to do on a holiday she's not a fan of, so she doesn't mind. And if Michael still manages to get to her, well, he'll have his work cut out for him as the laws of fiction dictate that it is extremely difficult if not impossible to kill a Final Girl and a bunch of kids.
    • Her instinct to protect the children is one thing she has in common with contemporary horror heroine Ellen Ripley, and for that reason they became friends. They may sometimes be seen protecting kids.
  • It came as shock when she declared an alliance with the sadistic Nurse Ratched. This stems from how Michael was captured once and placed under Ratched's special brand of care, and through her methods she managed to cow him so much that it took all the serial killers in the Pantheon working together to set him free. Ratched has expressed to Laurie how sorry she feels for her having to deal with a psychopath who should be locked up. Laurie doesn't entirely trust her and is a bit scared of her, but after hearing of Ratched's effective handling of Michael, she'll take any help she can get.

    Marion "Mary" Crane 
Marion Crane, Goddess of Surprising Deaths (Mary Crane)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Psycho_Marion_8053.jpg
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: She insists on the '57 Ford Custom 300 Fordor that she bought when she stays at Bates Motel, but her followers seem to prefer using a bloody shower
  • Theme Song: The Psycho Theme Song, much to her dismay
  • Alignment: Formerly True Neutral, attempted to be Neutral Good but didn't succeed thanks to Norman Bates.
  • Portfolio: Anti-Hero, stealing from her company ran by a horrible boss, Heel–Face Door-Slam, staying Alone with the Psycho, Redemption Equals Death, those whose death is well-known
  • Domains: Narrative, Crime, Anti-Hero, Life and Death
  • Herald: Lila, her sister
  • High Priest: Bernard Marx
  • Allies: Prince Zuko, Aerith Gainsborough, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Kamina, Eddard Stark
  • Enemies: Norman Bates, Bernkastel, any serial killers
  • Marion was thought by the other gods to be the main characters of her world, until she took that fateful shower and got killed horrifically by Norman Bates. The fact that she is a developed character with her own conflict and character act as well as one of the first and most shocking twist in cinematic history caused the gods from the House of Life and Death to resurrect her and put her into the throne.
    • However, true to her position, her resurrection is quickly discovered to be a side effect of an exiled Jean Grey-Summers's Phoenix Force power. The gods quickly jumped to find Jean in order for her to return to her throne in the House of Life and Death while Marion was left in the dust as she doesn't have any particular power.
    • During the aftermath, Marion has a brief crisis about being shoved out of the spotlight again and is very resentful of Jean. However, after a Rousing Speech from one of her fellow gods Kamina (and a translator), Marion acknowledge that she is graceful for her position and vows to do her best to earn her throne and redemption.
  • Her temple is a weird place: Most of her followers doesn't really realize they aren't the main characters until the narrative kill them off from their world and transported there by the House of Life and Death.
  • She has a weird relationship her killer Norman Bates: While she hates him for killing her and destroy her chance to have her own story and redemption, he is the one responsible for her ascendant to godhood in the first place. However, she despises his mother Norma for being the one responsible for his insanity and problems. That still didn't stop her from stonewalling his ascension for as long as she did. Now that he is in the Pantheon, she refuses any attempts of an apology.
  • Hates Bernkastel's guts for trying to weaponize her temple through her game piece Erika and vows to keep her from using it ever again.
  • Only using bathtub whenever she goes to the bathroom for obvious reason and made sure her door has at least two bodyguards with special powers.
  • Strikes up an unlikely friendship with Prince Zuko as he sympathizes with the fact her journey is somewhat opposites his: He achieved main character status in his universse through his redemption while she was killed off before she can achieved hers. However, she declined his offer to make a play to explore what would happen if she has escaped Norman, citing that it would make her goddesshood entirely pointless. In truth, it was because she heard warning from Aang about how much... liberty his Fire Kingdom playwrights can took.
  • Despite being told by the other gods as unnecessary, she insists on taking some sort of punishment for her crime during the time that she was mortal. They decided to enlist her into the case of a fan community that keeps harassing Harry Potter as they think he is a Decoy Protagonist and Hermione Granger is the "real" main character of the books. Marion quickly solved the case by declare that because Harry received a large amount of plot importance and character development throughout his franchise, he therefore is a true protagonist in his own right. While the case was deemed by Marion herself and the other gods as just an excuse for her to gain some sort of closure on her crime, she gained Harry, Hermione and Ron's major point for solving an annoying problem for them.
  • Befriended her fellow goddess Aerith for the fact that their death is a well-known fact of their story. She helps Aerith keeps guard of the Book of Plot Twists.
  • After ascending to the pantheon, Marion enlisted Sherlock Holmes's help to see if Carmen Sandiego stole the title protagonist from her movie. The detective dismisses her case and points out that Carmen doesn't steal things that would lead to killing.
  • Is frequently seen in the House of Knowledge & Technology to catch up what she has been missing from the 60s. It's reported from the House of Narrative that her favorite invention is the home release system.
  • Fellow goddess Laurie Strode treats her as if she was her mother.

    Mary Sue 
Lieutenant Mary Sue, Goddess of Parody Sues (The Original Sue, Sue Prime)
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A Starfleet Badge, but shinier than usual.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Parodies Of The Mary Sue Concept, The Youngest Lieutenant In The Fleet At Fifteen And A Half Years Old, Half-Vulcan, Incorruptible Pure Pureness.
  • Domains: Space, Beauty, Perfection, Parodies.
  • High Priestess: Ensign Sue (her successor).
  • Followers: All Mary Sues (though she wishes that they wouldn't, they just missed that her fanfiction is a parody).
  • Allies: James T. Kirk, Spock, Leonard McCoy (she met them in her fic).
  • In Good Terms With: The Protectors Of The Plot Continuum.
  • Headbutting Heroines With: Ichigo Momomiya.
  • Mary Sue died heroically saving the Enterprise, but members of the House of Theater found her casket floating through space and discovered that she was not quite dead. They revived her, and she immediately stood trial for being a Mary Sue (in fact, the one who named the trope). She was originally barred from the Pantheon, but changing standards of what makes a Sue rendered her sins small potatoes, and that combined with her satirical intent allowed her to jump to Purgatory, and then return to the Pantheon.
  • Despite her redemption, many Sues still see her as the original and follow her. This greatly embarrasses Mary, and she has tried to get them off her back, but with no success.
  • Spends most of her time in the Pantheon trying to prove that she's worthy of being a true Goddess. She has won over several of the members of the Pantheon, mostly Gods with a sense of humor, but others remain hostile and suspicious of her.
  • Surprised everyone, including the PPC, when she asked them for a role as an agent. They accepted (though not without first checking to make sure they hadn't gone hallucinatory), and now Mary Sue works for their organization, taking out Sues her own way.
  • She's currently happy with her current role in this house... however, Kirk is trying to seduce her like the other time and she's not pleased. She's having a hard time convincing him that she's not that type of Sue.
