Pantheon / Quirks

Go To


The House of Quirks is a strange one as it has bookshelves that contain dictionaries of all the languages, specifically dialects, in the Pantheon along with many different signs of people in different poses. A P.A. was installed for important announcements, though it is mostly used by for anything but that. Most announcements are confessions from the Special Lovers Squad Division 1 or the Lolrangers and Trollkaigers attempting to prank/troll someone.

This is also a place where most gods come in order to practice their Ass Kicking Poses, such as many Sentai gods and the Ginyu Force, since everyone knows nothing is cooler than having a signature pose.

The Transcribers

    Donald Duck 
Donald Fauntleroy Duck, God of The Unintelligible (Paperinik, Maui Mallard, The Court Magician, Magia, The Storm, Cantankerous Iron-Clad Sailor)
  • Intermediate God (Greater God as Paperinik or when with Sora and Goofy)
  • Theme Song: the opening of his old cartoons; alternatively:
  • Symbol: His Sailor Hat; his staff (in Kingdom Hearts)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (Chaotic Good in Kingdom Hearts)
  • Portfolio: The Disney Universe's Original Breakout Character, Born Unlucky, The Unintelligible, Berserk Button, Butt-Monkey, The Chew Toy, Feather-Trigger Temper.
  • Domains: Chaos, Suffering, Rage, Magic, Toons
  • Allies: Huey, Dewey, and Louie (his three nephews), Scrooge McDuck (his uncle), Della Duck (his sister), Jose Carioca & Panchito Pistoles, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck, Pluto, Goofy, Otacon, Carmelita Fox, Bugs Bunny (neutrally), Dimitri Lousteau, Sly Cooper, Bentley Turtle, Murray Hippo, Sora, Riku, Roger Rabbit, C-3PO and R2-D2, Tron/Rinzler, Ed, Numbuh Four, Jax and Daxter, Launchpad McQuack
  • Rival: Gladstone Gander, Daffy Duck
  • Enemies: Flintheart Glomgold, Yuuki Terumi, Bernkastel, Izaya Orihara, Handsome Jack, The Joker, Giovanni, Penelope Mouse
  • Opposes: Chernabog
  • Respected By: The Professor (who is just as unlucky as he is)
  • Though they bicker a lot, Donald is who Mickey would consider his greatest ally. They go way back. REAL way back.
  • Has become a favorite target for "Trollkaiger" seeing how easy it is to make him angry with explosive and hilarious results. Their initial salvo round of trolling began with Bernkastel showing him a kaekra shard where he is a poorly drawn psychopath while Terumi put images of the most vulgar strips directly into his mind. Izaya troll texts Donald's cell phone with the phrase "Gooby pls." Needless to say, Donald has currently asked several fellow toon gods for ideas on how to get back at "Trollkaiger".
    • There is one "Dolan" that Donald doesn't mind, however: Danger Dolan, although the Cloud Cuckoo Lander tendencies he exhibits in his Super Planet Dolan videos annoy Donald a bit.
  • He spends a lot of time in the House of Magic, practicing different types of spells. However, he's really not good at surviving being attacked by them.
  • In one universe, he has been able to fight against super villains, alien armies and space pirates with tech comparable to that of many gods in the House of Technology, proving that he might have some rather dangerous potential hidden deep inside.
    • And in another universe, it was discovered that he was both a detective AND a ninja who battled pirates and zombies. It is currently unknown how his powers can vary so greatly from universe to universe.
  • He's been known to have piano duels with Daffy Duck in the House of Music occasionally, which always result in violence and a lot of chaos. Such duels have since gotten the two banned from any pianos, but they both agree that their duels are not as chaotic (and deadly) as a certain starfish's infamous song.
    • Donald is said to have a terrible singing voice. When he once took part in a musical, Ariel was too love struck to sing, and Donald offered to take her place. Sora was quick to tell him off. Another incident was when he tried to perform a duet with Don Octavio, which caused a chandelier to drop on the audience and Octavio to remember the time he performed a duet with Bentley Turtle, which got himself beaten to an inch of his life and thrown in jail
  • Donald is also known to be quite greedy, as evidenced when he visited the Cave of Wonders in search of a "treasure fit for a sultan" to give to the Peddler, as well as when Sora and Goofy thought that they would lose Donald to the curse of the Aztec treasure. Because of this, everyone has to keep an eye on Donald whenever they visit any place with loads of treasure.
  • When Gleeber and Lunk were searching for candidates for their "Galactic Games", Jak, Daxter, Ratchet, Clank, Sora, and Donald were all chosen to take part. However, due to the incident at Castle Oblivion, the latter two were "unavailable" and replaced with Sly and Bentley. Donald would later confront the duo in what remained of their rocket and force them to be used as "dummies" for his magic practice. What happened to those two remains classified, but rumor has it that they were made into soup for Daisy.
  • Often seen as the Foil to Murray Hippo, in which they are both the Lovable Cowards of their respective trios who'd later lose their cowardice to help their friends, and are even drive the team vehicle. Of course, their style of battle is contrasting, with Murray relying on strength, and Donald relying on magic.
  • Donald is known to craft alternate forms with his own magic. How effective or helpful it is depends on the situation, and the magic will always Sora and Goofy as well, even if neither are with him, leading to awkward moments. This can randomly affect nearby allies as well, like turning Kyoko Sakura into a mermaid, or putting Ratchet into a pirate outfit.
  • Has probably the second-most expansive job resumes in the entire Pantheon (with only Homer Simpson having a larger one). While he mainly works as a coin cleaner for Scrooge (or whatever job Scrooge needs relatively free labour force to), with another fairly common job being working at a margarine factory, he has had ridiculous amounts of jobs over the years. Though most of them have ended really quickly, or ended in a disaster.
    • He once asked the Cutie Mark Crusaders for help trying to find his purpose in life. Unfortunately, this is one god the three fillies aren't able to figure out, but since the Cutie Mark Crusaders don't give in, they're determined to find a job for him.
  • Another defining feature for Donald is that he has one of the worst luck streaks in the pantheon ever. There have even been records of him finding 20 dollars on the street, accidentally tripping a bank robber who was caught by his lucky cousin, and HE got held in jail under suspicion with bail costing....20 dollars.
    • That being said, because of his rage, he often finds the most effective way to deal with his bad days is to power through with Unstoppable Rage.
  • Has been tight-beak about what happened to his sister, Della except that it involved the "Spear of Selene". Then it was revealed that said "Spear" was actually a rocket Scrooge made for him, Della, Scrooge and his nephews (once they hatched) to explore the depths of outer space. However, Della took the rocket without asking and flew herself into a space storm, causing Donald to take the boys into a safe secure place and Scrooge to isolate himself. However, while Donald thinks that Scrooge was selfish for not doing anything to help his sister, it was actually quite the opposite; Scrooge spent almost all of his own money building rockets to find out what happened, only for his financial advisors to stop this nonsense as he was going bankrupt and, as it turns out, she's been stuck on the moon for the past decade or so. Oh and then, on the day Della finally returned home from Earth, he got blasted into space right around the time the Lunarians (lead by General Penunmbra) was about to launch an invasion onto the Earth. Thankfully, after a struggle to get back home, Donald and Della were finally reunited and he's made her his Herald and has her taking tours around the Pantheon. The House of Family threw a humongous family reunion party for the two.
  • Was absolutely happy to find Daisy in the Pantheon, although Daisy chewed him out for not telling about the Pantheon sooner. Then, kissed him and stated how happy she was to see him.
    • It turns out it goes deeper than that. While most gods are unable to understand what he's saying, or even singing, Daisy actually has no problem hearing it for what it is.
  • His heralds are a Brazilian parrot named José and a Mexican rooster named Panchito and they make up the "Three Caballeros" who are actually descendants of the original Caballeros who helped stop the evil Lord Felldrake from taking over the world.
  • Many attempts have been made to make Donald easier to understand, one of them being easy-to-digest Voice Modulator pills. One attempt had him sound very similar to the Marvel superhero War Marchine.
  • His time fighting Heartless with Sora and Goofy has, evidently, caused his power level to skyrocket, since, as of their latest adventure, he can cast ZettaFlare, one of the most powerful spells ever, calculated to be about 1000 times more powerful than Earth's sun by some, and a spell more powerful than Flare spells normally reserved exclusively for Physical Gods. As he's been fighting Eldritch Abominations regularly, this is unsurprising.
    • Being the only other known user of ZettaFlare Airy now has him pegged as a threat to keep watch on.
  • Has recently been seen visiting the House of Food. When asked about it, Donald said it looked like a good place to find some ingredients.

    J. R. R. Tolkien 
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, God of Languages (J. R. R. Tolkien, CBE FRS)
  • Demigod
  • Symbol: A Contraction of his Initials.
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: High Fantasy Series, Cunning Linguistics, Bilingual Bonus, Cash Cow Franchises, Trope Namers, Never Giving Up.
  • Domains: Languages, Literature

  • Followers: Every fantasy writer, though some don't like to admit it.
  • Underlings: Eru Ilúvatar, Melkor, Sauron, Aragorn, Samwise "Sam" Gamgee, Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, Smaug, Gandalf
  • Allies: Alan Wake, J. K. Rowling, Terry Pratchett, every Good Deity in the Houses of Quirks and Narrative, Louise Banks, Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson
  • Rivals: George R. R. Martin, Jay and Silent Bob
  • Opposes: The Beatles
  • Opposed by: Stanley Kubrick
  • The writer Tolkien well regarded by many in the Pantheon for various reasons. He has created the basis for the Standard Fantasy Races and their subsequent successors as well as kick-starting the Fantasy genre by himself. Yet one little known fact about him is his proficiency at creating brand new languages. A linguist, Tolkien used this knowledge to create several different languages with their own vocabulary, establishing languages for elves, dwarves, orcs and the like. His contribution to fictional languages was enough to land him a spot on The Transcribers in the House of Quirks.
  • The position comes with a number of nice perks. Most importantly, he's the only God who can understand the entire Pantheon without reading thoughts. Any new deity with language issues can turn to him to help bridge the language barrier than can arise with new deities
  • Tolkien and his underling Sauron would like to remind you that The One Ring is not a metaphor for drugs or nukes. The biographic film explains that he was more influenced during his tenure in World War I.
  • All of his underlings have a varying degree of respect towards the man. Frodo can't help but wonder if Tolkien wrote him as his avatar. Even Melkor himself is amused by the similarity of his creation to that of the various Lucifers in the Pantheon. Though in his case, he sees himself as someone who was wronged by Iluvatar and should be the rightful controller of all fiction. As for Eru himself, he has long since decided that things became as they were regardless of Tolkien's influence.
    • Christian deities in the House of Religion and Faith took notice in this fact and pondered over what to do with it. Some were still suspicious of fantasy in general while others blamed Gyrax for tainting Tolkien's work by adding foreign religions. Yet there are a good number of deities who became amused at the revelation.
  • Never did get to live long enough to see any of his adaptations. He winces at times whenever he sees the cartoon movies, but admits it had some good animation. It's clear that his favorite series was the live-action The Lord of the Rings series which he enjoys watching when he can. As for The Hobbit... he has yet to comment on the series.
  • Considering the aforementioned relation to the Fantasy genre, every deity influenced by that genre pay homage to him:
    • Terry Pratchett is one of Tolkien's foremost advocates of his works. Terry has no problem admitting that Tolkien was his inspiration when writing the Discworld universe. Tolkien finds the other author's theories regarding narration intriguing, pondering whether things truly are to be.
    • Another well-known writer of the fantasy genre, J. K. Rowling did read Lord of the Rings as a teenager. Regardless of how much he helped created the genre, she maintains that she did not take much plot at all from the books and any similarities between the two are 'fairly superficial'. She does acknowledge that she could never match his worldbuilding skills, but can at least write better jokes.
    • Tolkien pondered if Alan Wake's disappearance had any similarities with the way Frodo left Middle-earth at the end of his book. He claims to have no way of contacting the missing author, but he does hope to have a chance to meet the man.
    • Tolkien never got the chance to experience Dungeons & Dragons as a mortal, but he enjoys playing with the mechanics around the game and its subsequent sequels. He even helped Gary to work on languages for the new races his team keeps picking up. A lucky player in the House of Gaming may have the chance for Tolkien himself to play along side you. Better yet, Tolkien even provides his services as a DM.
  • When asked about his influence in fiction, Tolkien stated that he was overwhelmed with just how many works turn to his books for inspiration. He thoroughly enjoys the first trilogy and watches it with many of his underlings whenever he can. That... can't be said of the prequel trilogy.
  • One of the very few fantasy writers able to approach him in terms of influence, George R. R. Martin has risen to become one of his most foremost critics of his stories. The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire series has taken a hard look at everything from the fate of the orcs to the economy required for armies to travel without starving to death. GRRM has been the most dismissive is the nature of Good vs Evil conflict prevalent in much of fiction. The two even tried to settle things in a Rap Battle.
  • There is also the long-running feud between Fantasy and Science Fiction. Jay, Silent Bob and their friends at Leonardo, New Jersey have firmly side with that of the Star Wars franchise. Tolkien himself has not qualms with the genre, but does have a problem with the zeal Jay and Silent Bob and the lengths they go to discrediting his work.
  • Loved the fact that a linguist was able to save the world from what could have been a horrible misunderstanding. So much so that he personally helped deify Louise Banks. He believes if there was any other linguist who should ascend, it should be her.
    • Together, the two made it their mission to continue research on the language of the Heptapods. With the nature of their language, the two believe the alien species may be key to resolving all conflicts in the Pantheon.
  • The Silmarillion was developed in the last days of his mortal life... and years later, his son Christopher completed the work and published it. Had it not for that, neither Eru nor Melkor would have had such important roles in the Trope Pantheon. Melkor regards this Died During Production as the reason why he doesn't regard Tolkien as his creative superior, and were it not for the whole Death Is Cheap thing, Tolkien would be his Cosmic Plaything for putting his forces in a position to lose.
  • One of the more bizarre grudges in the Pantheon is between Tolkien and the Beatles. It all started when the author refused to let them star in a Beatles adaptation. The reason? He hated their music. It didn't help that they played three blocks from his house nearly every day. Once the Beatles ascended, they commemorated their stay by playing outside his temple every night for one month. Over the years, it has been customary of their followers to trash the other's work of art.
    • Things took an even crazier twist when Kubrick arrived at the Pantheon. The man was supposed to direct the movie, and he did not take kindly to the fact that he lost out the chance to direct a beloved franchise. So it was pretty easy for him to side with the music band in the dispute. Tolkien stated that he has no qualms with Kubrick, acknowledging that he is a talented director.

  • "Finally… The Rock HAS COME BACK TO THE PANTHEON!"
  • When former University of Miami college football lineman Dwayne Johnson initially made his way into the World Wrestling Federation, he was known as Rocky Maivia, a complete milquetoast good guy whose claim to fame was his father Rocky Johnson and his grandfather Peter Maivia both being former McMahon-promoted wrestlers. Surprisingly, he was utterly hated as the worst of the worst. Getting sick of it, he finally broke away his 'goody two-shoes' persona, joining a black supremacist organization called the Nation of Domination as a means to break out. When these words were heard, people knew that he had changed…
    "Die, Rocky, Die." That's the gratitude I get from you pieces of crap? For all my blood, my sweat and my tears?!
    • From that point forward, he proclaimed himself The Rock, and let out his swagger from The U at increasingly higher degrees, soon becoming known for his hammy, charismatic speeches, as well as THAT eyebrow, while kicking much ass in process. As a result, he quickly rose into stardom and became 'The People's Champ', not looking back anymore. His stardom not only reached the very top of the wrestling business, but extended beyond this as he became the biggest action movie star in the world, naturally garnering the attention of the Pantheon enough to grant him a seat.
    • When discussing which aspect of his transformation into The Rock would be his dominion in the Pantheon, one aspect stood out above all others: he had made himself known as an awesome Catchphrase machine. Nearly every single word he says is considered so catchy and awesome, it's nearly always going to be oft-quoted or become a slogan for a promo. He has even demonstrated the power to cause any random phrase to go trending worldwide on Twitter within an hour simply by declaring on television that it would. Naturally, he became the God who rules over catch phrases — this didn't even need to be codified, it just was. At this point, you might be wondering which Catchphrase is the best of the best — IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK THE ROCK'S BEST Catchphrase IS!!
  • His followers, known as "The Millions", as well as his personal army known as "Team Bring It", are the source of power for his most devastating attack: The Peoples Elbow. After throwing any of his belongings to nearby onlookers, no matter how small or insignificant, he runs over his opponent's body as energy from the people gathers to his elbow, that he later uses to unleash a powerful blow towards his opponent's chest. This move is almost guaranteed to gain a victory for him if he has enough support for it… or if his opponent can lay down on the ground long enough.
  • Whenever he visits the House of Love, all the Goddesses become wet… with perspiration!
  • Is good friends with Captain Kirk, but The Rock says that he would defend his place in the Pantheon if that jabroni William Shatner (Kirk's alter ego) wants to contest for it. But The Rock has already had a backup place in the house of Personal Appearance as the God of Eyebrows should he fail to defend it… but that's unlikely because that jabroni never stands a chance! That old throne was supposedly for Large Ham, but The Rock found a higher calling so he willingly left his old house for that higher calling.
  • Fought against John Cena in two consecutive WrestleMania events, proving that he can still go up against (and in the case of their first encounter, beat) one of the biggest names that the world of wrestling has to offer. Ever since that day, he has tried to become a Greater God worthy enough to be in the Main House. Many gods have said that it is impossible. The Rock's response was simple:
  • Due to him being Rescued from the Scrappy Heap, he's friends with The Duck Hunt Dog, who eventually became popular with the fanbase after years of being absolutely annoying.
  • Sometimes appears as a Polynesian warrior named Maui who likes to shout "YEA-HOO!", or make a mess of things by shifting into various animals. That's how Moana was able to find him.
    • Eventually Maui ascended to the Pantheon on his own, breaking away from The Rock. Still, Rock keeps healthy ties with both Maui and Moana.
  • For all their violent and reckless behavior, the Rampage gods hold him in great respect as he stars in the film adaptation.
  • Whoever tries the Jumanji video game in the House of Treasures has the option of an avatar who looks like him. And yet The Rock himself cannot play the game, even when picking said character.
  • He's a huge fan of Black Adam and made frequent trips to Black Adam's temple for the chance to become Adam's avatar in the future. After some thinking, Black Adam saw the wrestler as worthy. While this has made him alienated by Billy Batson, Dwayne honestly has no beef against Shazam himself and will spar alongside him if need be.
  • Is good friends with Hercules, who he portrayed once, even if said movie was a deconstruction of sorts.
  • Has Michael Bay's back, given they worked together once - though not on The Rock, as funny as that would've been.
  • All the members of the Pantheon, especially those from the House of Food, can certainly give an answer of yes to the following:
    • Some deities who chance upon him there would say he's cooking, and serving... "Pie."
