Lesser Gods

    Lord Djibril 
Lord Djibril, God of Dirty Cowards
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/djibril_91163_767.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The LOGOS Logo
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil/Stupid Evil
  • Portfolio: Hate Sink, Bad Boss, Lack of Empathy, General Failure, Hair-Trigger Temper, War for Fun and Profit, The Sociopath, Dirty Coward, Evil Is Hammy, Diabolical Mastermind, Psychotic Smirk, Would Hurt a Child
  • Domains: Cowardice, Hatred, War
  • High Priests: Jarek, Shura
  • Allies: Nobuyuki Sugou, Ali Al-Saachez (for now), Muruta Azrael, Sundowner, HYDRA, Millennium, SHOCKER
  • Headbutting Villains with: Ryoma Sengoku
  • Enemies: All heroic Gundam deities (especially Kira Yamato, Lacus Clyne, Setsuna F. Seiei, and Aila Jyrkiainen), All Ascended Toku Heroes, Axel Almer & Lamia Loveless, Ryu Hayabusa, Yuuki Konno, The Punisher, Batman, Kiritsugu Emiya, Dexter Morgan, Kaito Kumon, Bowser, Raul Menendez, Jason Todd, Daffy Duck
  • Evil Counterpart to: Valvatorez
  • Opposes: Piglet
  • Opposed by: Shinn Asuka, Makoto Itou, Kotonoha Katsura, Sekai Saionji
  • Hate is a word that can easily be used to describe this man. Djibril shares as much, if not more, hatred towards the Coordinators as his predecessor, Muruta Azrael. Many others hate Djibril not for how remorseless he is in what he does, but also for not being as competent as Muruta. There's also the fact that Djibril retreats without regard of his soldiers whenever things turn south for him (and he tends to come back later with more apparently dangerous plans).
  • Like Muruta, Djibril has found work at SHOCKER, having a role similar to that as Muruta's. However, Djibril is even more difficult to work with given his tendencies and there have been instances where his (arguably idiotic) actions have cost SHOCKER some battles against various heroes. Ryoma Sengoku has cited this as the reason why he can't tolerate working with Djibril.
    • Regardless, Djibril was able to get Nobuyuki Sugou to work alongside him (provided that Ryoma is not in the same room as them). Djibril has even mentioned that something about Sugou reminded him of Neo Roanoke, whom he relied on for his plans.
  • For the most part, he tends to be in a room that contains multiple TV monitors, presumably to hear about other going-ons throughout the Pantheon. It is in that room that Djibril carries out his plans and whenever he isn't at SHOCKER's headquarters, he usually communicates with his allies from that room.
  • Unsurprisingly, his actions made him an enemy of Gundam heroes (of particular note is Aila Jyrkiainen, who hates him over the whole brainwashing thing). What is a little more surprising is the fact that a number of other Gundam deities who aren't that heroic also hate him. In particular, Treize Khushrenada finds Djibril to be despicable on multiple levels.
  • One notable rumor about Djibril is that he often gets involved in wars just to make a profit. Regardless of whether that's true or not, he's found a pretty good business partner in Sundowner, who has occasionally helped Djibril with getting enough funds to make more superweapons.
    • Djibril's presumed attitude about war also earned him the animosity of those who hate war such as Kiritsugu Emiya. They've even gone as far as to cite Djibril's actions as to why war is a horrible thing.
  • The Toku heroes, primarily the Kamen Riders, quickly decided that he is a threat to be eliminated after learning of how he worked for LOGOS, a terrorist organization not that different from SHOCKER in terms of cruelty.
  • Many war commanders, especially the good-aligned ones, detest him for not only his poor treatment for his mooks, but also for not being that smart. Even Mori Motonari, who is notorious for his disregard towards his subordinates, doesn't like Djibril at all for lacking any sort of style whatsover.
    • This animosity against him is also shared by those who are mooks working for someone and it can be argued that their hatred of Djibril is even greater than that of their hatred towards Muruta.
  • As someone who is responsible for making a program that takes children by force and turns them into dangerous soldiers, Djibril earned many enemies from those who are protective of children. In particular, people such as The Punisher, Jason Todd, and Dexter Morgan are more than willing to take down Djibril if given the opportunity to do so.
  • The fact that Djibril often leaves whenever he's about to lose earned him a lot of enemies. One notable enemy in that regard is Yuuki Konno, who hates him for being so underhanded in his tactics and the fact that he's associated himself with Sugou, who she already despises.
    • Despite being a self-admitted coward himself, even Daffy Duck is unamused with Djibril entirely. While Daffy does have a few friends to at least turn to, Djibril would simply leave his associates in a bad position whenever such a thing arises.
  • Djibril once met up with Raul Menendez and the former tried to get the latter to work with him. Menendez was against the offer as not only was Djibril lacking in certain aspects, but the fact that Djibril was basically in charge of a program that turned children into ruthless soldiers greatly offended Menendez to the point that the two have become highly antagonistic towards each other. That, and Menendez had a reason to do what he is planning to do whilst Djibril mostly did his actions out of racism against a certain kind.
  • He is rather amused at the fact that Ali Al-Saachez was involved with creating a separate army of child soldiers just for chaos. In turn, Ali found Djibril's tendencies to be entertaining and has considered working for him. Needless to say, this possible alliance immediately made Djibril a target for Setsuna F. Seiei.
  • Ryu Hayabusa is incredibly disturbed at this man over his actions and willingness to do whatever it takes to eliminate the opposition. There's another reason why the ninja hates Djibril.
  • Those who have a leadership role towards their subordinates quickly detested Djibril for completely disregarding that aspect of leadership in favor of just trying to win for personal gain. This included deities like Bowser who, despite not having the best temper around (compared to Djibril who could snap rather easily), is rather reasonable to his mooks.
  • Valvatorez absolutely despises Djibril for not only treating subordinates like trash, but for exploiting wars for personal gain, something that Val can't stand. In fact, many are convinced that these two are complete opposites in terms of mook treatment and outlook of war.

    Koba 
Koba, God of Paranoia
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/koba_4991.jpg
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: His facial scars
  • Theme Music: Close Encounters of the Furred Kind
  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Bastard Bonobo, Hates Humans, The Sociopath, Guttural Growler, Obviously Evil, Only Caring About his Desire for Revenge
  • Domains: Hatred, Hypocrisy
  • Allies: Doctor Zaius, Napoleon, Scar
  • Enemies: Caesar, King Kong, Winston, Simba, Humanity in general (notably Dr. Eggman, Dr. Cortex, N. Brio, Julius Caesar)
  • Very Difficult Relations: Mojo Jojo
  • If there's one thing that's always going through Koba's mind, it's that humans are horrible beings that deserve to die, no matter how well-meaning they actually are. This dangerous mindset can be traced back to years of being abused and neglected at a laboratory. After being liberated by Caesar and aiding in the rebellion, Koba became a close ally of Caesar, but such a thing wasn't going to last much longer. Koba, unable to let go of his hatred of humans, tried to murder Caesar while the latter was just trying to help humans have a peaceful coexistence between humans and primates. After convincing a number of members of Caesar's tribe to go after the humans, Koba unleashed his bloodthirsty tendencies on not just humans, but apes who did not agree to his actions. While he was eventually killed by Caesar, Koba's actions were something that would have very nasty repercussions for everyone involved, especially Caesar.
  • A monkey with facial scars showed up one day in the Pantheon, seemingly minding his own business. Crash Bandicoot, who just so happened to be relaxing at the time, noticed him and, remembering what he told Caesar about showing Koba the Pantheon, decided to follow through on his word and give Koba a tour of the Pantheon, of which the ape agreed to. Caesar, having come back from an excursion, learned about what Crash and Koba were doing and, upon realizing that the latter might try to do something bad to Crash, had to try and make sure the bandicoot didn't cause unwitting trouble.
    • Surprisingly enough, the tour went through without a lot of problems, if only because of Koba pretending to act harmless in front of Crash (though Koba did show visible anger towards some of the more scientific deities they were around, but Crash was able to make sure Koba didn't go to crazy those times). By the time the pair went to the House of Weapons, that was when things started to fall apart. Koba went off on his own when Crash wasn't looking and went to a place where there were a large amount of firearms. It looked like the place was unguarded and Koba was able to get his paws on a couple of guns, but a couple of people who were asked to guard the place had to rush in and stop him from stealing anything. Koba simply shot them in response and Crash, having just realized that Koba was definitely not a good guy, had to fight him to prevent any more trouble from happening.
      • Crash and Koba's confrontation went on for a bit, but it ended with a lot of bullet holes, a tired Koba, and an upset Caesar, who had just managed to catch up to the two. Caesar made it clear that what Koba did back when he was alive was nothing short of atrocious and that even if he acknowledges that some humans are as bad as Koba claims, Caesar still prioritizes the goodwill of both humans and primates alike and will stop Koba from causing any further damage. As for Crash, Caesar stated that he should have told him sooner about Koba's true nature and that another fight between the two is possible.
  • Not only does Koba vehemently despise humans, but he also has it out against apes that don't support his beliefs to the point that he's willing to imprison or murder any "followers" that question him. Given that most of the primates in the Pantheon are already friends with Caesar, Koba is more than willing to threaten those primates and Caesar's aforementioned friends don't like Koba at all.
    • He really does not get why King Kong, despite being a neutral figure in the long run, would be friends with Caesar. According to Koba, with all that power, Kong should be trying to crush those that stand in his way. An attempted meetup between Koba and Kong ended very badly for the former. Koba bringing a couple of firearms to his planned meeting in an attempt to convince Kong certainly didn't help.
    • Winston has nothing positive to say at all when it comes to Koba, seeing as how he embodies the worst aspects of the apes Winston was with that revolted back on the moon and going a step further by instigating a violent war just to kill humans no matter what they did. Winston has offered to fight Koba and stop him from causing any further damage.
    • Even Mojo Jojo, who is one of the only other antagonistic apes of the Pantheon, sees Koba as far too unhinged and violent for his own good. It's true that both were normal apes before they gained intelligence through different means, but whereas Mojo Jojo is capable of showing politeness every now and then, Koba simply uses that attitude as a facade if it means getting close to his goals. Koba has actually tried getting Mojo Jojo to embrace his more violent tendencies, but Mojo Jojo really doesn't want to be within vicinity of him.
  • Much of Koba's actions have been compared to that of Scar's. Both partook in a plot to usurp someone from their positions and used it to cause misery for everyone else involved. Their reigns of terror ended when confronted by the rightful leader that was presumed dead initially by some others. Scar found Koba to be a very interesting monkey and both are willing to aid each other in their goals. Simba, knowing what it's like to be on the wrong end of an usurption plot, saw Koba to be just as bad, if not worse, than Scar and made it a point to stop them.
  • Napoleon saw a lot of himself in Koba, specifically how they are animals seeking power and becoming tyrannical to their respective groups in order to prove their superiority towards humans, up to and including exhibiting human-like traits at the apex of their insanity. Koba being far more open in his violence has also got the pig's attention and he is willing to use the ape in his goals. Koba is all too willing to oblige if it means shooting at anyone who gets in the way of their alliance.
  • If there is one kind of human that he hates the most, then it would be those who have had a history of experimenting with animals, especially if its for selfish purposes. Dr. Eggman stuffing animals inside machines is more than enough to get Koba even more angry than normal and this is not getting into the plans that Dr. Cortex and N. Brio have at hand. While Crash has fought against the latter two a number of times before, Koba seems to have greater antagonism towards them than Crash could have.
  • One day, Koba was on the run from a group of hunters out to get him. While seeking a hiding place, he ended up in a secret shop headed by a shadow known as Krobus. Koba used this opportunity to feign friendliness to see if Krobus had anything worthwhile to say. Krobus mentioned that he doesn't think too highly of humans that his species apparently had unpleasant encounters with them, something that interested Koba greatly. The ape did go through Krobus' shop to see if there was anything useful, but there wasn't and Krobus had to stop him from damaging the shop. Their meeting ended with Krobus telling Koba that even if he acknowledges Koba's description of what humanity could be, it's only because Koba hasn't tried taking a chance to seriously meet a human to see what they're like, since Krobus did meet a couple of human shopkeepers and became friends with them.
  • Despite being a victim of torture, most others (both torture victims and otherwise) in the Pantheon find if very hard to sympathize with him due to using that as an excuse to perform terrible actions. To make things even worse, even if Koba were told that humans have been tortured through no fault of their own, not only would he go after the perpetrator, but also the tortured human.
    • An encounter with Renekton certainly didn't go the way Koba hoped for. Knowing about Renekton's insanity, Koba tried to convince him to help him out in getting revenge on humanity, but Renekton was already too insane to talk to at the moment and it led to Koba getting severe injuries. While Koba is aware it means that another meeting with Renekton won't happen anytime soon after recovering, he certainly doesn't mind if humans become a victim of Renekton's violence.
  • Pacifists, as well as those who hate war, are repulsed at the fact that Koba caused a war between apes and humans to break out when both sides, which were having a then-shaky coexistence, was getting close to resolving something. It certainly didn't help that all of this happened in the midst of a fatal epidemic that was killing off humans.
  • It came as a bit of a surprise to Koba that there were a couple of other beings also known as "Caesar", prompting him to look into things. Notably, his encounter with Julius Caesar went very poorly for the both of them. Julius hates Koba over how the latter's assassination attempt of Caesar the Ape brought back bad memories of Julius getting murdered by those he trusted previously. Julius Caesar being a human was simply enough for Koba to detest him. A potential fight between their armies (provided that Koba is able to build up one) is bound to get bloody.
  • While the House of Weapons is better-guarded than it was when Crash and Koba initially visited it, that hasn't stopped Koba from trying to see if there's better and stronger weapons to use in his crusade against humanity. If there's something potentially more terrifying than a gun-toting ape riding on a horse, it would be a sword-wielding ape riding on a horse. And there's the even-less-likely, but still dangerous possibility of an ape on horseback carrying both a gun and a sword.

  • Enemies: Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke, Enter, the GUAE Trollkaiger, Gilgamesh, Ragyo Kiryuin, Monokuma and his Mastermind, SHOCKER
  • One of the Ascended Followers of Erza Scarlet, Satellizer made her way to the Pantheon due to her long history of being Haphephobic. Originally, she was feared by the whole school students of West Genetics due to her homicidal tendencies whenever she is touched until she met Kazuya Aoi, who becomes her unofficial Limiter and became less aphephobic due to a series of her development alongside Kazuya.
    • Even after her ascension she is still close friends with Erza.
  • She became close friends with Kouta Kazuraba as both of them shares a similar ideals of protecting the ones they care, including their respective friends and families, as well as both of them had the similar experience of being a broken person until they recover with a sheer determination.
  • She is somewhat surprisingly became friends with Gentaro Kisaragi and Eiji Hino as two of them are friendly and also nice to her. After she shares her stories to them, Satella was glad that the two Kamen Riders accepts her as an ally despite of her dark past.
  • Also became close allies with Naruto Uzumaki and Peter Parker as both three of them started out as heroes who were treated badly by other people around them until they manage to become more respectful figure to others.
  • She and Kazuya had made peace with her younger half-brother Louis, who is responsible for abusing her during her childhood, after she defeats Louis' Pandora partner Holly Rose in a fateful battle that causes her to overcome her biggest fear.
  • Was glad that Elizabeth Mably manage to ascend into the pantheon as both of them were once enemies due to Satella's retaliation on the 3rd year students of West Genetics until both of them became respected allies during the 10th Nova Clash.
  • She is also very close friends with Arturia Pendragon as both of them are swords women who were paired with a male partner.
  • Has a friendly rivalry with her ally Rana Linchen in a competition for Kazuya's affection, much to her chagrin. Until Rana made her ascension in the same house as Satellizer was glad to see her rival once again.
  • Became friends with Courage because the dog understands her fear initially due to the her troubled pasts.
  • She can be seen in the House of Food wolfing down numerous hamburgers in Bob Belcher's cater. At this moment she holds the record for most hamburgers eaten in one sitting. Though Musashi seems to be competing for this title.
  • At one point, she bumps into Jun Kazama, Shigure Kosaka, and Nodoka Miyazaki, as both all of them quickly became close friends in a odd way mostly due to their voices sounds similar to each other.
  • She doesn't like Coop's guts with all of her passion, mostly due to Coop being more chaotic than her while Coop has the same opinion on her, as he sees her as a "Ax-Crazy Burger Eater". The only thing they can get along is whenever they fight against evildoers everywhere.
  • Also doesn't get along with Kaito Kumon as she is not amuse of his tendencies of being a nominal hero while Kaito literally hates her guts as he literally sees her as a "weak person" due to what he heard of her fear of being touch by others. However they casts their differences whenever they act as a team, especially since they had the same common enemy in Ryoma Sengoku.
  • She became close friends with Ryuko Matoi due to the fact that both heroines are fighting otherworldly beings (The Novas and the Life Fibers). On top of that, she notice that Ryuko's voice is similar to her old enemy turned ally Ingrid Bernstein.
  • She gets along well with Sakura Matou due to their similar past and also encourage her to become stronger just like her. On the other hand, she dislikes Shinji Matou due to him being a rapist as he would dare to threaten her and/or her closest allies, she will give him the beating that he deserves.
  • As she fought Satella made several enemies in the pantheon, such as Ryoma Sengoku due to what she heard of him being a mad scientist who is willing to his own allies to further his own agenda including his quest for godhood through obtaining the Forbidden Fruit, Gilgamesh due to him being a evil prideful douchebag who only cares about himself, Ragyo Kiryuin since she betrayed humanity for allying herself with the Life Fibers, Monokuma and his Mastermind as both of them initiates a mutual killings in a certain school full of despair, and the Trollkaigers due to their atrocious acts in the pantheon. Due to this she will do anything to stop them so that history would not repeat itself in the pantheon.

    SCP-096 
SCP-096, The God of Not Liking Being Looked At (The Shy Guy)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/096.png
The safest possible view of SCP-096
  • Lesser God, Greater God when enraged (Euclid by SCP standards)
  • Symbol: Himself, turned backwards so as not to face the viewer
  • Theme Song: Chase
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: Having a morality system based on its face, Creepily Long Arms, Not wanting to have its face to be looked at, Humanoid Abomination, The Juggernaut, Lean and Mean, Will not stop until it kills anyone who looked at its face, To Serve Man, Volumetric Mouth
  • Domains: Faces, Skinniness, Rage, Rampages
  • Contained by: The SCP Foundation
  • Interests: Majora, Jack of Blades
  • Allies: None, he tries not to interact with anyone
  • Enemies: Anyone who sees his face. More specifically? Excalibur, Medusa, The Weeping Angels, SCP-173, SCP-682, Ghatanothoa
  • Feared by: Cappy
  • Unclear opinion: The Boos
  • During the containment breach that resulted in SCP-106 ascending to the Pantheon, it was discovered that two other SCPs had also broken out. One was SCP-035, and the other was SCP-096. The Foundation's first priority was to find 096, not wanting to know what would happen if someone looked at its face.
  • SCP-096 was soon discovered wandering in the House of Anger, but unfortunately, Excalibur got too up in 096's face. Thankfully, the Foundation managed to get the other gods out of there without them looking at 096's face, while Excalibur dealt with 096's wrath. In the end, 096 was unable to kill anyone, thanks to, and including Excalibur, and thus 096 made the ﺧ益ﺨ face instead. Unfortunately, 096 was endorsed by Nekron, who desires to use 096's rampages for his own ends, and SCP-096 stayed in the Anger House once the Foundation rebuilt its containment chamber.
  • The SCP Foundation has advised everyone not to take photographs or any pictures of SCP-096. Artistic renderings won't trigger SCP-096, but it's probably best not to do so. And no, SCP-173 with a picture of SCP-096 is absolutely forbidden as a means of terminating SCP-682 or anything dangerous. Repeated suggestions for this will be demoted to D-Class. They tried getting 096 to terminate 682, 096 was traumatized afterwards.
  • Basically the polar opposite of the Boos. Neither of them like having their face looked at, however the Boos are paralyzed in fear while SCP-096 will go berserk. And while the Boos attack those who aren't looking, 096 is peaceful when its face isn't seen. There was a test to see what would happen if the two came in contact; as the Boos closed their eyes at the exact time SCP-096 turned its face, they didn't count as being seen and the two were paralyzed. At least until someone else saw SCP-096's face and it went on a rampage.
  • No relationship with the Shy Guys from the Super Mario Bros. series. SCP-096 isn't even properly sentient, it's just that the two don't want their face to be seen. At least, one hopes there's no relation. Mario deities are advised to stay far away from 096.
  • As it goes berserk even if the picture only has four discolored pixels, the Foundation tried to get it to attack SCP-173(who can't move if something's looking at it). SCP-173 was too fast and snapped it's neck, 173 healed and the cycle went on for about five hours before it escaped its cell. The Weeping Angels tried to gang up on SCP-096 and it proved a bloody stalemate that led both sides traumatized, the Angels unable to feed on it's potential life energy and SCP-096 unable to break them in their quantum-locked state.
  • As whoever looks at Medusa's face is petrified, she tried to pacify SCP-096. At first, it actually seemed to work as before 096 could get at her it turned to stone. Then the statue of SCP-096 started to move again, except now it was made of rock, making it even harder to deal with. Woops.
  • Majora and Jack of Blades were interested in SCP-096, due to its status as The Juggernaut. They want it to serve as their Big Dumb Body. The SCP Foundation is completely against this happening. It's theorized that while Jack of Blades wouldn't prevent SCP-096 from going berserk because the eyes would still be visible, as Majora would cover the whole face so no-one could look at it. Majora might be able to pull a Hijacking Cthulhu, but this would probably be much worse.
  • The Grand United Alliance of Good made a deal with the SCP Foundation to have Cappy be put on SCP-096 as a way to permanently pacify 096. They could trust the hat ghost. Unfortunately the Shy Guy's...nature caused Cappy to be in great pain, unable to exert any control and powerless whenever SCP-096 goes on a rampage. He was too traumatized to go anywhere near SCP-096 or anything Foundation-related again.
  • Theoretically you could pacify SCP-096 by putting a paper bag on its head. Don't tell them about it, they'll feel like massive idiots for not thinking about that first.

    Solidus Snake 
Solidus Snake, God of Properly Placed Paranoia (George Sears, The President of the United States, Ol' Georgie Boy [by Sundowner], King, Solid Snake)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/solidus_snake_mgs2.png
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: The American Flag wrapped around two Katana, The Minshuto ("Democrat") and Kyowato ("Republican")
  • Theme Songs: Yell Dead Cell, Father And Son
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil with Lawful Neutral aspirations
  • Portfolio: Anti-Villain, Raiden's Archnemesis Foster Dad, Cold Revenge on The Patriots, Child Soldier Who Grew Up to Create More Like Himself, Exoskeleton Suit with "Snake Arms", Wielding Two Swords
  • Domains: Freedom, Sword Wielding, Liberty, Justice, Speed, Being Remembered
  • Complicated Relationships: Funny Valentine, Revolver Ocelot, Sundowner, Mistral, Monsoon, Satsuki Kiryuin and her Elite Four, Josiah "Jed" Bartlet
  • Enemies: Raiden (his foster son), Solid Snake, Liquid Snake, Steve Rogers/Captain America, Führer King Bradley, Father and his Homunculi, Esdeath, Seryu Ubiquitous
  • He started to realize just how far the Patriots' reach had extended, and decided to ascend and gain allies in his attempts to fight The Patriots. Though many think that he is only being paranoid, he has been shown to be right, as he showed the future in which The Patriots were in control.
  • He is the reason Raiden is Jack the Ripper. Because of that, Raiden will always be his enemy, and he has new, upgraded power armor to fight on his level.
  • When he was told that Revolver Ocelot was in The Pantheon, he, at first, was livid until he discovered what Ocelot was really after all along: The destruction of The Patriots, since then Solidus has offered Ocelot help, though he is often wary around him.
  • Is probably the only one of Big Boss's clones to not have a problem with Big Boss, instead visibly treating his progenitor with great respect.
  • Is trying to uphold the American ideals of freedom and equality for all. He will uphold that even if that means the deaths of hundreds.
  • He also absolutely hates any other member of the Pantheon that believes in attempting to hold absolute control, and do so over individual rights, as he thinks they are no better then The Patriots and must be killed. Any Ancient Conspiracy that seeks this out in some way or another are especially heinous to him.
    • One such target group would be the Homunculus Father and his arcane offspring, for what they have tried to do to their country of Amestris (and Father successfully did to his previous country Xerxes as a simple dwarf in a flask). Because of this, the moment they ascended their public Head of State, Führer-President King Bradley, he has sought opportunities to try to bring them down, including working with Satsuki Kiryuin and her Elite Four (who themselves have learned their lessons about this type of thing) with the specific intent to go after Bradley. He and Satsuki actually had Bradley dead-to-rights during said raid, only for two of Bradley's partners, Esdeath and Seryu Ubiquitous, to save the Führer.
  • Is often at odds with both his brothers Liquid and Solid. Liquid believes that there can only be one Boss and one Snake and has attempted to eliminate him at times, while Solid often thinks he is going too far as he has tried to stop him.
  • He does have good memories about the time he and Ocelot were talking about the plans for taking over Metal Gear during the Shadow Moses Incident.
  • President Jed Bartlet is said to be helping direct him and other American soldiers to try and take down groups like the Homunculi and the Patriots before they can repeat their atrocities in the Pantheon. He also works alongside President Funny Valentine as they have similar beliefs of what is good for The Country.

  • Odd Friendship: Mega Man X, Zero, and Axl
  • Opposes: Technology itself.
  • Sticks the Jungle Badger has a wacky, out there personality. She is the only descendant of Jeremiah Badger and seems to be a force of nature. She grew up in the wilderness since her childhood, so friends were a very new concept to her. That being said, she eventually formed a strong bond with Sonic, Tails, Amy and Knuckles, joining them in their battles against Dr. Eggman as their Wild Card.
  • Ascended when she was found lurking in the woods one early morning. When she encountered some of Eggman’s robots while being escorted by a few other deities to the Court of the Gods, she reacted very violently, destroying them, claiming afterwards that robots will eventually turn on everyone and cause the apocalypse. Impressed by her display and beliefs, she was soon given a proper title as the Goddess of Technophobia.
  • Obviously, her version of Eggman wasn't very happy to see her, though being Affably Evil, he was very polite about it. Game Eggman was pretty affable about it as well...but then there are the more cruel versions of Robotnik and Eggman which actually gave Sticks pause. She was shocked how in some universes Eggman is far from Affably Evil, being an Emperor Scientist filled with cruelty and malice, especially the Satam and Archie versions of Robotnik, who also happen to be Complete Monsters. She also has to deal with Metal Sonic, remembering just how he copied her abilities as well as those of her friends.
  • True to her beliefs, she really doesn't like the Grand United Alliance of Machines. She believes that all of the members there, including the good-aligned ones, seek to turn on everyone and bring about the apocalypse, replacing life with robots. In some cases, like Ultron, she couldn't be more right. The member she most vividly remembers is Sigma and seeks to help his other enemies bring him down once and for all.
    • Dispite her hatred for machines and robots, she's on friendly terms with X, Zero, and Axl. And asked about this, her responce was to hand wave it and say they were the "good ones".
  • Gets along with other Wild Children, like Tarzan, Mowgli and Gau. This also extends to the others who used to be a Wild Child, like Daisuke Yamamoto, N and Hareta. She has, as a result of this, become enemies with Ghetsis Harmonia and Kefka Palazzo, especially the latter, due to his Omnicidal Mania and Depravity.
  • Enemies with The Evilutionists Of Mad Science, particularly Professor Hojo, whose monstrous personality makes her fierce enemies with him and has sometimes been personally responsible for disrupting his plans. He's sworn to subject her to a slow and painful torture, with Sticks daring him to try and her becoming EVEN MORE hellbent on putting a stop to any of his plans.
  • When she first ascended, Blaze the Cat thought that her friend, Marine the Raccoon had ascended. When she found out that Sticks wasn't who she thought she was, she was slightly disappointed, but ultimately became friends with her anyway. Through Blaze, Sticks eventually met Silver, and learned about one of their greatest enemies, Solaris. Learning of the horrible acts his components have committed, including creating a Bad Future and killing Sonic. She has sworn to help them prevent Iblis and Mephiles from becoming Solaris again.
  • Is greatly opposed to Dr. Gero for his vendetta against Goku going to the point where he’d make evil androids and convert regular teenagers into cyborgs. In her eyes, however, his most heinous acts are creating Cell and turning his wife into an Android.
  • Tends to hang out in the house of Nature. There, she feels comfortable as she doesn’t have to deal with many forms of technology, though she stays away from the Toxicity Sub-House due to how disgusting and problematic it and most of its residents are, especially The Lich.
  • Shadow the Hedgehog is a bit of an enigma to her. The Shadow from her world was a bastard who Would Hit a Girl with no regrets and has no Dark and Troubled Past to justify his attitude. Here, though, Shadow is a much better person, especially after Maria’s ascension. She takes Sonic’s word for it, though keeps her eye on him as she doesn’t trust Shadow one bit. Shadow himself was appalled that a version of him was so cruel especially to the point of being a Chaotic Evil Jerkass.
  • Enemies with Dr. Wily due to his similarities with Eggman. He doesn’t mind this. However, she hates Dr. Weil and Omega more, both of them being completely depraved. She’s also opposed to the Ax-Crazy Metallix for what he did to most of her friends.
  • Enemies with Lord Recluse for his monstrous use of technology and his Card-Carrying Villain status. She hates him greatly, and to her frustration, he seems to welcome her as an opponent. She also doesn't like Ultimate Reed Richards either, believing his ideal utopia to be anything but. She also opposes Fawful for using technology to reawaken a dark power to conquer the Mushroom Kingdom, his plan backfiring and resulting in the near-destruction of everything. Because of how Bowser and the Mario Bros were responsible for ultimately taking down Fawful and the Dark Star, she has respect for all three of them. The Mario Bros immediately accepted it while Bowser simply stated that she had the wrong idea and that they never should've crossed him in the first place.
  • Is Good friends with Cream and Big. All three of them are great friends of Amy and much like Big, she's lived secluded in the wild for most of her life. She also respects Tikal and Cosmo, the latter for helping put a stop to monstrous aliens called the Metarex and the former for turning Chaos back to the side of good, putting an end to his rampage after he was defeated by Super Sonic.
  • Do not assume that a boomerang is the only weapon she'll use. Sticks has been using many other weapons as of late and thanks to the vast amount of those in the Pantheon, she's become much more dangerous to her enemies. Eggman and other technological villains are having headaches over this.
  • Met Sally Acorn at one point and while the meeting could have gone better, especially with Sticks chastising her on her use of technology to fight back against Robotnik's metal empire, though Sticks eventually came to believe that she may not have had any choice, especially when considering the cruelty of her versions of Robotnik and Eggman when compared to hers. Still, given Sonic the Comic Robotnik is an Omnicidal Maniac, she quickly found him to be worse than even them.
  • Laughed her ass off when she heard someone called Eggman a fat guy named after breakfast food.
  • SCP 953 hates her for being a “furry.” Sticks has responded in turn by calling her a disgrace for eating people and the two have become very fierce enemies. Black Doom is also a major enemy of hers, as despite her current status regarding Shadow, Sticks notices just how vile the evil alien is and won’t hesitate to help take him down when he causes trouble. His goals didn’t help matters.
  • Is opposed to evil organizations who use technology like Millennium, HYDRA and Shocker. She has proved capable against Hydra soldiers and some of Shocker’s Monsters of the Week, yet she has recognized that she needs help against Millennium no matter who she faces.
  • Her disgust towards technology has earned her a friendship with Badger, and while he doesn’t like her tolerating Tails’ use of it, he gets along with her just fine and they will sometimes hang out together.
  • Once had the misfortune of coming across Joker, who immediately decided to attack her while giving a Breaking Speech and she would have been killed had some deities not intervened at the last second. She’s hated Joker ever since, and he finds that hilarious and seeks to destroy any form of hope she has.

Bertolt Hoover, God of Constant Nervousness (Bertholdt Fubar, The Colossal Titan)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bertolt_hoover_anime.png
Spoiler 
  • Demigod/Intermediate or maybe even Greater God in his Titan form
  • Symbol: A sweat drop
  • Theme Song: Apple Seed
  • Alignment: Neutral Good/Actually closer to True Neutral or Neutral Evil, although the exact alignment seems unknown.
  • Portfolio: Being a Nervous Wreck non-stop, lots of sweating, Cowardly Lion, Extreme Doormat, sleeping in awkward positions, emulating Spider-Man Becoming the Mask, necessity in doing what he's told
  • Domains: War, Nervousness, Passiveness, Espionage
  • Allies: Annie Leonhardt, Reiner Braun, Marco Bodt, Roboking
  • Enemies: Eren Yeager, Dovahkiin, Trollkaiger
  • Freaked Out By: Doomguy
  • Constantly nervous and seemingly not a single thing can change that. He only gets a little bit relaxed when hanging out with other Titanverse deities, particularly Reiner and Annie. Eren's an obvious exception.
  • His sweating has reached a point that you can fill whole bottles with it.
  • His ascension cemented the reunification of BRA Team as he, Reiner and Annie are sometimes referred to. Trollkaiger immediately found the acronym to be a great base for further trolling.
  • Is probably the only single person capable of turning Dovahkiin into a slobbering wreck due to his absolutely massive Titan Form.
  • His ascension marks the second time Eren Yeager had lost his shit. Bertolt's obviously disturbed by him and avoids him whenever possible.
  • A surefire way to actually piss him off is to threaten or hurt either Annie or Reiner. Since he's the Colossal Titan, it's one of the dumber things to do.
  • Doomguy seems mighty interested in his huge guts. Bertolt avoids him even more than he does Eren.
  • Really wishes people would stop calling him Fubar even if it's partially true.
  • Surprisingly, even if their first meeting consisted of Roboking's nervousness being shown while Hoover accused him of being a titan dressed in clothing, the two actually became decent enough friends afterwards, with Roboking even respecting and understanding the choices Hoover made. As such, deities tend to run for cover should something happen to force Roboking into Danger Mode and Hoover into Titan form.

Quasideities

    Marlin 
Marlin, God of Adult Fear ("Marty", "Clown boy", "Mr. Grumpy Gills", "Jellyman", "Mr. Fish")
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marlin.png
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: His anemone home
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Going through Adult Fear, lost his wife and all but one of his children to a barracuda, Action Survivor, resistance to jellyfish stings, not a protandrous hermaphrodite, Unintentional In-Universe Memetic Badass on Paper, terrible comedian, Cowardly Lion, Ironic Name, Formerly Meddling And Deconstructed Overprotective Dad, Became More Badass And Cheerful Over Time
  • Domain(s): Clownfish, Fear, Searching, Determination, Fathers
  • Herald: His son, Nemo
  • Allies: Dory, Spongebob Squarepants, Patrick Star, Magikarp, the Ninja Turtles, King Triton, Ariel, Arthur Curry, James Henry Trotter, Courage the Cowardly Dog, The Heroic Protectors Of Family
  • On good terms with: Other overbearing parents/parent figures who eventually grow out of their over-protectiveness, Guthix
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork with: Mr Krabs, Klaus Heissler
  • Enemies: The Child Abuse Supporters, Hexxus
  • Fears: Human deities, Bruce, the Kraken, The Red Gyarados, Lurerre the Abysroid, Ursula
  • Pitied by: Moana
  • Marlin was once a cheerful and optimistic clownfish, joyous at the idea of being a father. However tragedy struck when a barracuda would hunt and kill both his wife and all but one of his eggs. Since then, he's understandably been an Overprotective Dad to his son Nemo, which reached its pique when he was taken by a diver. Along with Dory, Marlin would traverse the ocean to save his son.
  • Gods in Fear experience or represent all sorts of fear, but he stands for the fear of a concerned parent. Your only surviving son being at risk would do that, and has at times thought Nemo died. Over time he's managed to become more happy over time and open about his son's adventurous side. Still he's quite protective, and may have asked for godhood in part to be better at keeping his son safe.
  • Given his species of clownfish, people assume that makes him a comedian. If so, he's really bad at it. It does give him a resistance to poison stings due to living in an anemone, which allowed him to survive his encounter with jellyfish. Still, a lot of the gods in Toxicity overwhelm him. He considers Hexxus an enemy due to how vulnerable pollution is to coral reefs. Also, he is not a protandrous hermaphrodite despite his species.
  • Being a clownfish, he regards humans as terrifying entities he can't comprehend. This fear continues in the Trope Pantheon, despite a number of human deities being aware and understanding of him. His overprotectiveness over his son reminds Moana of her own father's (former) overprotectiveness (especially how he lost a loved one due to a disaster). The clownfish's fear of humans prevent any closer bond, however.
  • Despite his fear of humans, Marlin is able to get along with a few without much problem. He and James Henry Trotter managed to become friends as the two of them overcame their fears, plus James already made good friends with a bunch of bugs like getting along with a fish wasn't that hard for him. As with all sea life, he recognizes Arthur Curry and seems to respect him. The two can relate as Aquaman's son was murdered by Black Manta. He is sad for Guthix due to losing his daughter.
  • A dedicated father, Nemo traveled across the ocean and all the way to Sydney, Australia, to rescue his son. Every good parent is proud of his actions. While most of them were human, he got over his fear of the Heroic Protectors of Family instantly and became a staunch ally of the group. Though it's hard for him to have any enemies, the Child Abuse Supporters are one big exception and they go against everything he stands for.
  • Gets along well with Triton, as they were both overprotective dads which eventually backfired. He was happy to learn that he was in charge of the seas along with Arthur Curry, and has become a friend of Ariel. He is also an ally with the Ninja Turtles due to their knowledge of the sewers, which was an important part of Nemo's plan to escape back into the ocean.
  • Being a small clownfish, he is understandably terrified by the likes of the Red Gyarados, Lurerre, the Kraken and Bruce, along with Ursula. Bruce is still sore about the nicer shark that also goes by Bruce Nemo met. Despite his fear of Gyarados he's fine with Magikarp, due to being low on the food chain and in many ways pitiful.
  • Has some conflicting feelings towards Klaus Heissler. As a man turned goldfish he sympathizes with his position, however considers him a bad influence because of his hedonistic personality. However his position as a former human makes him a bridge between him and humanity in proper, which comes off as useful. Also is conflicted on Mr Krabs, since while he wants to occasionally shout Nemo a Krabby Patty he considers the crab a cheapskate. More amiable with Spongebob and Patrick, who also had their own adventures throughout the seas.
  • His fear and over-protectiveness has manifested as a Shadow in the TV World. Having a Persona to better protect himself from threats sounds like something he could really use. However, there's the little obstacle of the Investigation Team being comprised of humans…but should he manage to overcome enough of his fear to accompany them, he would not only be their smallest client to date, but their first aquatic one. And so far, the team has yet to traverse an underwater dungeon in the TV World.

    Mima Kirigoe 
"Excuse me, who are you?"

Mima Kirigoe, Goddess of Personal Horror (Mima-rin, Yoko Takakura)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mima_kirigoe_5392.jpg
  • Rank: Quasideity
  • Symbol: Her own reflection
  • Theme Song: Mima's theme
  • Alignment: True Neutral normally with hints of Neutral Good, but is more Chaotic Neutral internally.
  • Portfolio: Idol Singer Turned Actor, Broke Contractual Purity, dislikes being a celebrity, Victim of Attempted Rape, The Ophelia, Break the Cutie, Sanity Slippage, Having Disturbing Nude Scenes, Action Survivor, Earn Your Happy Ending
  • Domains: Singing, Acting, Insanity, Stalking victims
  • High Priestess: Nina Sayers
  • Allies: Sayaka Maizono, Marion Crane, Miku Izayoi
  • Enemies: The entire House of Tainted Love (barring the good or sympathetic ones), Annie Wilkes, Any rapist and stalker in the Pantheon
  • Pitied by: 765 Pro, μ's, SoLaMi Smile, Rion Kugayama
  • Following the re-release of her story and the Western release of the story that inspired it, many new deities were finally able to view her story personal growth, trauma, and paranoia. It was then decided to give her the trope of Personal Horror due to how it affected her and how she was able to overcome it.
  • Her and her whole story is filled with a lot of Alternative Character Interpretation, with everyone having a different reading of her and her story. Is she actually fine at the end, or has her alternative persona taken over? When did her delusions begin or did they even end? Did she become an actress by her own choice or was she pushed into it being one by her team? For the sake of her sanity and to not repeat what happened to her, nobody has asked.
  • She has several nude scenes in her story, however most deities find these scenes disturbing rather than titillating. Be it due to how they are shown together to blend with scenes of violence or because she gets into more emotional distress because of them. One of the most infamous scenes being a rape scene for the TV show she was on, which is made out to be as realistic and disturbing as possible and is the start of when her psyche would take a massive hit. This scene would later end up being a dark forewarning into what would actually happen to her, as she would end up the victim of nearly being raped and murdered by a Loony Fan. Thankfully, she was able to fight back, and manage to fend off her attacker. Still, the experience has made her make sure she keeps away from any stalker and rapist in the Pantheon.
  • Considering the fact she was almost raped and killed by a Loony Fan, she is directly opposed to Annie Wilkes considering what she did to the Paul Sheldon. She also reminds her of Rumi, her old manager who tried to murder her and take her place as the real Mima.
  • The Story of her High Priestess is in this odd space of being not-quiet a Foreign Retelling and being a Foreign Retelling. For what it's worth, the director owns the right to tell her story, and used a scene straight from her story in one of his earlier works.
  • Gets along well with the other Idol Singers in the Pantheon even though she is from different generation of idols. She glad that μ's were able to stop being idols on their own terms and had the freedom to do what they want as idols, unlike her who is implied in being pressured/forced into becoming an actress by her management team. She's also thankful that 765 Pro actually have a legit nice and sane manager unlike her old manager, she's still a little worried on what will happen to the girls when they get too old to be idols. The younger idols can't help but pity her considering what she went through and how she was mistreated, and how they thankfully never have any run-ins like the ones she went through.
    • Out of all the Idol Singers in the Pantheon she seems to get along and understand Sayaka Maizono the most. This mainly comes from the fact they both have Sanity Slippage based on them not being idols anymore.
    • Another Idol Singer she encountered was Rion Kugayama, who like her felt stifled by her idol business. However, she conspired to create a scandal by dating somebody like Kou Tokisawa for the sake of publicity. She was horrified that Mima's attempt to break out to more mature roles resulted in much agony for her, and wonders if her scandal might cause some unhinged fans to come after her. Mima reassured her that she was okay, and that she's unlikely to meet any unsavory people thanks to her powers and friends.
    • Another idol singer, Miku Izayoi, took notice of her story and approached her to tell her story; She was an up and coming idol with big, idealistic dreams, until her producer tried to cajol her into having sex with him. When she refused, he then spread nasty rumors about her, which people quickly ate up, ruining her career. When she tried to make a comeback, she began losing her voice. It was only until she gained her spirit powers that she didn't go with committing suicide. Because of this, Miku related to Mima's story, gave her a hug, and told her that she's available if she wants to talk to someone.

    Ned Needlemeyer 
Ned Needlemeyer, God of Anxiety Dreams
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ned_needlemeyer_1.png
  • Quasideity
  • Symbol: A spiraling vortex with a silhouette of Ned's head in the center
  • Theme Song: Nightmare Ned Main Theme
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Adorkable, Suffers bad dreams due to anxiousness, Attacks foes with a yoyo, God who has to confront his fears, Kid Hero, Possesses an incredible imagination, Nerd, Nerd Glasses, Nerdy Nasalness, Nervous Wreck, Charlie Brown Baldness

  • Ned Needlemeyer is an average 10-year old boy with a hyperactive imagination. Unfortunately, this imagination is more of a curse than a blessing for the boy as he's also incredibly high-strung, which combines with the massive imagination to result in chronic lucid nightmares that always end on a bad note. And though they can leave a negative impact on Ned, they can also have a positive impact on him. Most noteworthy of all being when Ned was subjected to five separate yet connected nightmares at once by the "Shadow Creatures" and not only braved through each nightmare but overcame the fears those nightmares represented, waking up more courageous than ever.
  • Ned ascended to the Pantheon when the Court of the Gods took notice of his constant nightmares and, noticing that his bad dreams were the result of severe anxiety, deemed Ned Needlemeyer to be the perfect candidate for Anxiety Dreams.
    • He was freaked out to say the least to find himself summoned to a plane of existence wherein all fictional beings are real, and many of them could reduce him to dust at the blink of an eye. But Ned was soon comforted upon learning that most members of the Pantheon are good and became flattered at having been accepted into the Pantheon alongside many heroes and admirable figures. Although he wishes that he hadn't been chosen for his anxiety-induced nightmares, especially as his given trope means that he'll be suffering horrid dreams all the more.
  • Ned's temple has two sides to it; the front side is that of his family's house: specifically when his family is absent, allowing the boy and any invited deities to snack on junk food and play video games. But the backside of the temple is that of the Quilt, a gigantic bed that acts as the crossroads to all of Ned's past nightmares, especially the ones conjured by the Shadow Creatures. Thanks to this, visiting deities are able to experience Ned's nightmares for themselves and the most daring of them have even made a game of braving those nightmares the fastest. Ned doesn't understand why anyone would willingly enter his nightmares but doesn't object to these visitations. After all, those courageous deities might provide some much-needed inspiration for him.
  • Became fast friends with Courage the Cowardly Dog, since they're both nervous wrecks who endure intense frights on an almost constant basis and are the butts of every joke in their respective worlds. They both also like to play yo-yo, and the two can often be seen exchanging yo-yo tricks.
  • Upon learning of the Pantheon's official God of Killer Yoyo, Bridget, Ned immediately sought him out to improve his "yoyo combat" with which to more easily overcome his nightmares. Bridget happily took the fellow yoyo-slinging boy up in this regard.
  • He gained the interest of Razputin Aquato when the psychic found out about Ned's chronic nightmares. As per the Psychonaut's agenda, Raz sought out to cure the boy of his horrifying dreams, which Ned couldn't be more welcoming of. Raz expected his curing of Ned's nightmares to be a cinch since he had cured longtime mental issues of many individuals in a single night. However, the young Psychonaut found Ned's anxiety dreams to be more difficult to heal than anticipated and would take a whole lot longer. But Raz isn't one to give up and vowed to keep on trying to save Ned from his nightmares no matter how long it takes, which Ned is forever grateful for.
    • Ned was also befriended by Jimmy Neutron for the same reason; the boy genius having been intrigued by Ned's constant anxiety-born dreams and, being the kind hero he can be, wanting to vanquish the many causes of those nightmares. Ned also reminds Jimmy a lot of his best friend, Carl Wheezer, both being neurotic nerds with massive round glasses, and Jimmy had even previously cured Carl of his own recurring nightmare. Although Ned is a great deal more intelligent than Carl and a lot less sickly.
  • Ned also gets along great with Wirt, being a fellow cowardly nerd whose anxiety resulted in him entering a surreal and often spooky world which may or may not have been a Dying Dream, even. The two were also antagonized by shadowy figures in the form of the "Shadow Creatures" and "The Beast", the latter of whom Ned is glad is not in the Pantheon (but now worries he may have jinxed everyone in saying so). Whenever Ned and Wirt hang out, they spend their times sharing tales of the nightmares and the Unknown respectively. For Ned, the Unknown reminds him quite a bit of his "Attic, Basement, and Beyond" nightmare, which even had its own "creepy woods" section.
    • In befriending Wirt, Ned almost automatically became a friend of Wirt's younger brother, Greg. Despite seemingly not sharing similar interests, Ned enjoys Greg's company all the same due to the boy's sheer friendliness and optimism, as well as being closer to his own age compared to the teenage Wirt.
    • As luck would have it, the Beast of the Unknown had since ascended into the Pantheon, and Ned had been severely regretting ever mentioning the possibility of his arrival. Not at all helped by the Beast implying that his ascension was Ned's fault in an attempt to get the boy to fall into despair. And indeed, Ned had become a favored target of the monster due to his anxieties. It's only thanks to the efforts of his friends keeping his hopes up that Ned hasn't become an Edelwood Tree.
  • Naturally preyed upon by nightmare-based deities and those who thrive off of fear, especially that of children. Freddy Krueger in particular came to favor Ned as a victim, given their respective positions, and unfortunately for Ned his yo-yo isn't effective enough a weapon to ward off the Avatar of Nightmares. Fortunately, though, Ned had received the protection of good dream deities and other protectors of children and has yet to receive any fatalities from Krueger or other nightmare deities. Although Ned hopes that, should he get attacked by any of them, the resulting harm is bloodless and recoverable, like in most of his own nightmares.
  • Even though he overcame the Shadow Creatures who turned out to be the frightening manifestations of friendly people (and an item) in his life, Ned is still wary of Living Shadows. On account of being the God of Living Shadows and a truly hostile entity, Ned stays far away from Dark Link.
    • Likewise, though Ned had conquered his fear of death or rather his grandfather dying, the House of Undeath reminds him of the horrors of the Graveyard Nightmare, with some of its residents exceeding the graveyard's Ghoul in freaky appearance, and steers clear of the place.
    • In response to Ned's wariness and fear of shadows and darkness, the boy was approached by Koichi Kimura, who embodied The Sacred Darkness and sought to show Ned that darkness and shadows weren't inherently evil, nor things to be avoided and feared. Being the Nervous Wreck that he is, Ned has yet to be enlightened. Nonetheless, he does find Koichi's words enlightening and considers him an ally.
  • When he first met Mickey Mouse in the Pantheon, Ned recalled shaking hands with a larger version of the mouse in his "Attic, Basement, and Beyond" nightmare and told him of this. Mickey was amused by this revelation of Ned's and gave the boy a real shake from the mouse. Upon shaking hands, though, Mickey suddenly felt he that he actually knew of Ned long before and somehow forgot...
